Welcome back welcome. This is trying to podcast and we're at exit number one one four and this week we don't want to be too glum to bloom to down about things but oh my god not brilliant weekend for us. Sports was sharon. In fact yesterday subtype was one of the worst sport. Raise mine tylar. Ooh this nephew. It is what it is. Isn't it what anybody listening to this watching. This was the end of the week. We was recalled the focused on monday so it literally is the day after Things happened site. We had something to do with tennis and something to do with football. And all that. Kinda stuff side togas rewind was site bad. Shark just what he was. Just actually the overriding feeling. I got from the to from say that wimbledon final the men's final on the football last night was just thought. Ariff inevitabilities chaka vicente in a bertini Played as if you took the first set. He was playing while you saying. Hey you just think it the floor that with the. I've been here surgery times before we talk. Show get hope. So i'm ben. He was outside of assad and then the football. That was the same. Those that kind of glitter always say. Yeah going going to one no know the times come back. Committee will try much much better for sure but with the penalties is that little glimmer You know when when completing our too early wasn't that that term nobly historically once had in the past. I literally not being able to watch. I might have to go in the garden and combat when it's over or if happy able to watch have been sat there with my head in behind so let's night i would. I was as how a just sat there and watched it because that was just the arabic say inevitability about why am i know that sounds really fast but it was kind of like. Oh we are again. I know i know exactly what you may not think in the first off is if we scored again in the first half Then i think that would have made a difference to how we played in the second half. I think in the second half we just kind of will must reverse it to old ways and gave ready defensive when we get back into the game that i'll i sort of twenty minutes or so. The first half we letting them play. What set what we had all the possession. It was fantastic even offering school ago. Which was after all the couple of minutes as incredible yes yet. We didn't capitalize on that. And i think everybody was. I surprised It was kind of now. I'm sure it was the simplest app because as a huge amount will guys into these things But you know. It's it's one of those things where i think The team have ready go further than any other. Men's football team since nineteen sixty six So that absolutely has to be celebrated we can talk tactics and strategy into were blue in the face but ultimately i think what. I don't think i know that neither officer may and certainly not in our media has experienced being the england football manager football for a month. Yeah the closest. I've caught me. Is that. I gave a lift when i when i was not driver for the two thousand twelve olympics. I lift to two of the right person. Women's football team off the closing ceremony next morning. Karen colony right young. He was lovely on colonies but she was so hung but she spent pretty much in tall. I'm cutting cutting ties on the back They taught great closing ceremony. Cranny of but that's as close as all ever come to anything like that. Yeah it is what it is and firmly enough. It gives us a pretty sort of topic front of mind. Today doesn't it. Yeah yeah absolutely absolutely they what they will sexual relate to the topic of football is that you know what i saw those. You'll blood ford's to tech penalties literally. Got i just went you thinking what i literally what he's doing because it just seemed like oh. My god is light like lambs to the slaughter tools. Now you know it would have been different. If that third one undergone will begin. What how did you see on tv. Bought it was never gonna rambo really. This is the thing. That's the difference between You know his smash was will. We decided that because of how they took penalties in training. But it doesn't matter how many times you cited mean tried in the is not in any way to replicate the reality of standing out with all the other line with millions of people looking at you the most high pressure situation you could possibly imagine. Anti belly The ball you know because you've ever been on the pitch before. I mean it's equal call. You can't replicate. And so. I do think that much as he's the lobster right i. I do. Think gossip Medical i mean i'm i'm going to disagree slightly insofar as i think on the pitching us to know i agree with that. I agree with that. But i don't think he got it rolling in bringing them on. I think it was right to bring the bone and i. I don't think he was necessarily wrong to allow them to take the penalty Because at their age. I'd go a few years ahead of such a half that sort of experience early on You know that's gonna make them toughen up mentally like nothing else. They can experience which is great ease for the world cup next year for the next round of the year rosen and all this kind of stuff. I a really good saying. Even though i wouldn't want anybody to be in that situation to suffer the heart rate the. I know that they're feeling and kind of stuff but why won't experience full them to hatha. How can they go. Never experienced likes. They got it now. If you said to me jewelry the euros a win the world cup is going to be the walkup casillas going to be a different catfish is yeah absolutely was now it was. Hey we ho incredible the fans. That was just an amazing opportunity. They've i agree. It was an incredible choosy. But again that kind of on. Don't want us to wait when we've ever had going in all fifa. I want us to win when there is just as much jeopardy for us as there is anybody else because then it stops the people go over. The reason was because you're at home when you had your home fans happy easy. Saw when he had this other. And it's just you know. I mean logically you. The every team is there. On their merits how qualification program works in And they have to prove themselves over a period of time in order to get to the tournament in the first place and that's what group stages are all about in an arrest of The i think. I don't want anybody have a reason to say the when we finally win something On the men's football side because the also women's teams debris and stuff which then gets mentioned ever a butts when they defunding some anti want people to have an excuse go or will they won't because but should win over on the merits of being the best team at that point in time and i agree with you. I don't think. I don't think we were the best twenty minutes. Thirty minutes of the first half. We were best team and they were just hanging on after that. Exactly exactly but one thing to things. I just i just wanna say before we leave. This topic is this one spanish for the parents ask. Can you imagine dead. They were in the stadium or whether they were home. Watch i mean. Can you imagine you'll you'll latch. That was when he was sopping. Gareth southgate shoulder may not all my god that was awful for the parents so spiteful then An ounce using say is it could have been worse. It could be worse because we could have lost a penalty shoot-out to the german way could possibly this so maybe it wasn't quite your worst ever baby way. Apart from this sporting weekends we'll move on from What else happened you. Sweet shurmur al is very it was. It was very very sorry end to a very very sorry week. Come to say it was like last week chris. Just an hatch a feeling like a sinus law thought rubbish week. Export last week was was particularly challenging. It will link again to our to our top remind. Yeah i just there's been also system guy on the house last monday i'm not sure whether it's before the podcastone after actually what. I'm not sure. I know it was but the the second of our house spies change that line on decided. They didn't want to buy after all for some ridiculous reason So that was just straight disappointing. And then we had Somebody else than sort of around on wednesday who were literally like an hour inside the house. And i was here as well. Just infusing about how it was on the author and all the rest of ace. And oh my god you behaving for most by five o'clock today because it's all this other stuff and then bid on the record statement. We did hear from the next time. They said they don't want to buy. And so i was like. Oh my god this is just getting beyond a so So yes so. We decided to go down a another route which means that You know it needs. I will be able to take matters into my house. Say sharon zesty action psych steps. Water goes no. I will allow things to happen to me. I'm jay them good for you. I'll be not be the most of ridiculous by will not you know so. That has all been quite difficult to to work out. Works because there's lots of different big decisions to be made and monday and old vessel. You know so. It's just everything so big going on. By the time. I got to find a this was even before tennis for opera. Site is just so dawn was exhausted. Mentally i call do this anymore. Car do this at. Ny wanna live a dead. What's going on now. do. I want to business anymore. I didn't do just everything everything was just like So we wake weeks from self that. Yeah yeah okay. So in contrast your mind was just a relatively normal weight loss weight. Care more than anything. had a car practic appointment have what every six weeks on tuesday so as to crack Again which was And i'm trying to convince my car practice. He went Skiing for the first time. I think it was last year but obviously much trotta lock But unfortunately he he went with a bunch of people who are of mixed abilities and there is something about Blacks who are good. Skiers have absolutely no empathy or compassion or concern for people who are still learning. Now come to do this do all the rest of it and invariably. I've heard this happen so many times. Invariably the person who is the beginning with their blake with their woman whether they aldo young or anywhere between they end up really disliking skiing. Because of this idiot who's going. Oh come down here will be fine and then they just broke down slide. Leave this person to fall and all that kind of stuff and it's just like yet you should be anywhere near people who are just learning So i visited talking to him in sight. Let you really need to go with somebody. He will absolutely lead you and you need to trust them that they will not take you down any slope that you can't handle that doesn't mean it's gonna feel easy. That will be times when you feel like you're being challenged on that's good. It won't feel like you're going to die at any second which is kind of what happens when you get these jokes. Skiers type people. I'm working on him every five or six weeks. I sort of put soluble seats. So what we'll get an absolute slips again eventually. Happy good See lots going on. Main terms of online commerce staff obviously naturally but i got to run the clinics for the first time you gauge yes. Cdt did so. This is for anybody that hasn't picked up on this. This is in the short community Normally we had monthly a online business clinics were coming with a challenge and get the sort of the herd wisdom so to speak from anybody else so we have people turning up with challenges people cutting up without challenge you sort of one halfway through and people who just wanted to come and say hello with a up. I'm too old for their depends for whatever the challenge was now. Because we've shifted those two weekly for all sorts of reasons. We knew that we probably get few pollen and challenges left off less often and that kind of thing but what did happen was we had to Group sort of four or five people. I won't puzzled Jumped in jonestown again but was lucky to to see them there anyway We only had one challenge to deal with which took only twenty minutes And it was the age old one of the on setting business utilized. I stay sole trade or turn into a limited company So that was a good one for people to give their thoughts on. It was really great because we had some people there who were limited companies some people from the beginning some people who had gone from trader to limited companies on still sold china It was great it was so we got a real range of experiences on that and because it took about twenty minutes 'cause that was really the only challenge that was that all i then sort of throw in a question to get thinking about things that took up twenty minutes and then as well so you know we'd allowed an hour and a half which sometimes we need. I'll be able to let go off to forty minutes released myself. Not let you go to twenty minutes not spoke to early but So we had just had a nice discussion. And i think you know because we had as four or five people that one person with a challenge. You just showed that those. The majority of people turned up wanting to offer would just want you to drop them so i felt it was important keenum for longer than twenty minutes to make them feel like they an opportunity and it was good. We had some good discussions about things in people stuff to think about as well which i think is always good On the so that was cool and then we'll else happened. There's other bits and pieces going on nothing Exciting the loan troy's or anything like that at the moment just really ticking hidden things taking ova which he's gets and then the weekends i was up said mommy jones again Momo's out day on saturday doing both stuff again. So i ended up making sure that john eight which was all night So we had hunters in this week for an astronaut since fences so with that sort it out and then of course yesterday sports So noli when only happens is a janis. Relegated to the background to watch football. What is just normal football and amongst as a in the in the front room in which is why she wants which is normally either midsummer foyle's war or garo one of those and said yesterday i said no Towards finals well so she got renegade to the background. So john and i were in the front room watching football. The tele So that was good local scouting quite know how to take it because he knew that the tension was in the air. He's i scouting. Amazing yourself upstairs. Because he wasn't quite sure say we've talked at length. About how will that went said this morning. The weather seems to have decided that. It's not happy with the outcomes. So mahan repeal. Yeah from wednesday on woods hair. Which is the call white but all my goodness the weather has been miserable. It ray has it just. I was really weird is that it's not that cold. I mean i know you said your heating kicked it mine. Hasn't been that cold hair but it's just been dumped really done considerable in this morning then be so on saturday morning. We did our normal walk around. Course was wearing my raincoat. Moraine hat and sin as festival is the Yeah so that was really. That was my week from now. Well a lot of the mind was so anyway. We kind of is onto our top mind. Does it does. It does so We were sort of thinking about yet. Kate was it was disappointing for the team. In england. football men's england football team. It was disappointing for bertini. I in his final on saturday. It was disappointing. Purplish cover losing to county in women's final Doubles twice i do enjoy what she doubles. And it was obviously disappointing for the losing pez in batches. Well but one of the things that i was talking to me Tunis inca to get that kind group. This morning was. It's not so much the fact that you have down. It's what you do. After the disappointment the yeah matters And i was comparing it to when i do Assessing of hockey prize And it's i mean it's the same coaching but particularly with assessing why i'm specifically looking for is not so much that they've much something up happens. Everybody makes a decision at some point in the lives is not so much that they market up. It's in the five to ten minutes often. Like mark to the point. I'm interested in because that then tells me how mentally prepared they are to work on their own gang. Employers who duff's ed a mock something up and then lose it for the rest of the match that is a far bigger compensation than the positive mocked. something up might take thirty seconds to mini also suggest kind of himself and get back into the game but they don't necessarily the rest of their game. They recognize as an isolated incident recognizes. Something the actually don't do anything about that. The only thing they can they can also is how they deal with the rest of the match And i think it's the same for anybody that Or anybody that suffers some kind of setback in their business is. It's not so much. The setback setbacks happen. It's how you deal with it moving forward and they for me is about Yeah i mean we can. We can spout cliche it some There's no such thing as failure. Just faith back. You don't wanna run away from what's happened. You want to take the learnings from wants. How can you want to understand why things go the way you wanted them to go. But you also want to recognize. That is a a an isolated incident kind of depending on what is obviously and there's nothing you can do. That don't have time machines. We can't go back and change. Was how can the only thing we can influence is moving forward. So that's kind of where i was going with that. What what you think. Yeah yeah absolutely is you can absolutely quite to to business call because we do. We do all have setback so we might have time slot. I've had this week where i just literally be. You know questioning. Everything is a big big going on. You know you just kinda feel all know for sure whether i want to do this anymore. And and it's about having that. But i think it's about recognizing that That you all can at times thought any business. You know they are yet. I don't care who you are. You know you could have the most successful business. Whatever you walk into gatt times where for whatever reason things you know all going according to plan or you have things in your life that name that you are game in a less energy absolutely to the table. And that's you know we will have stuff going on that. Do you know the that does affect us that way. So it's about how you deal with that stuff. And i know that i've been in situations like this many times. It's really bad last week. But i always know that it will pass. I always always now the minute. I stopped to think he's not going to pass then are really enjoyable. I set to you so bad as well to recognizing patterns in your business to because Realized as well that around this time of year because it's so full on most of the time and it has already full on particularly ethics. It's not last year through code everything. y- i get. I get this time of year knowing that. I've got august coming up. Where do you have a zoom freemen's. I do stop feeling so. I'm just ready right mental break as much as anything but but allowing myself to recognize that that so i. This is helpful. One of an updated with they don't have to like have this big panic. Oh my god this is okay. This is kind of normal. This is a this is how it goes usually tightly. I think that's really important Is to understand the cyclical nature the the seasonal if he liked nature of your business. Which of course you can only do when you've been in business for more than a year Which is why. I think you particularly I know you go back. Look at what. You've recent i in your journal For this time last year. How was i am. You're able to recognize the patents in your business because of that I think you're absolutely right. I think you know we. We are coming up to a period of having kind of been in this really weird place for more than a year now with all the stuff in a lot of stuff. How josie break Lost august which po cost turned into a logo. Right for us. Didn't it because it was just so intense with everything that was going on The the same time recognizing the. Yeah this thomas even act to feel a bit con of who. I need a break now. I need be a time to move on But for me. I'm not taking a break. Zoom break in august. Although i am planning to to have. I think it's a wake is on the just shoulder. Wake like an afternoon shorter waco. It's a it's a week and an afternoon karma wish way round. I was able to do it obsolete place. I managed to find spicy my diary to be honest So isn't one. It's not a sort of a sunday to a sunday. Talk saying. I think it's the thursday after the business clinic roy. That's it until next thursday lunchtime. Something might not so. I'm taking a bit of a bright. But i will still be having things zoom meetings and that kind of thing. I'm putting the time sowing site right. I'm going to let everybody know. I am not stealing. Client work jerry yet time and i'm really looking forward to that and i've not been brilliant doing that. You show Last few years. But you do kind of you have to recognize that they will be tough periods. There will be tough times. There will be situations that you have to do with The brilliant injects because the situations situations that doesn't mean that the overall is terrible inaugarated not functioning and It's just the trick isn't it is to recognize. Is this an isolated instant or is this a pattern the ahead deal with or is it indicative of something more Because you know if you like you say if you find yourself 'constantly feeling like i want bouldering wall doing than that. I think he's is something bigger than just bit. Tired from down need a break. Yeah yeah now. I think noticing patterns recording patterns is just really really how full mix it does stop you. When you do have a setback. It does stop going into that panic mode and it does stop you a trying to making something needs something that it should be mean if that makes sense obsolete navy. I mean we are sip up. Human beings are excellent act forming a. What's called complex. Equivalences at she's From the nlp wilt And the this idea that we take one saying we take something else and the relationship between the two we make have some kind of meaning Site for example I know that there would be people watching a match yesterday. That would have been lucky shirts. Lucky salk so lucky pat so whatever. That's okay that's fine but really that they're they reasons remaining between if i'm shirt they're going to win because clearly that's been disproven from yesterday But it's way to bring sort of a business level. It's all well if i win this contract. Then that means on brilliant everything and that's a complex equivalence. Doesn't it means you you brilliant winning that contract and you might be very good at winning contracts and that's great but then if you don't win a contract doesn't immediately made that you are rubbish at witted contracts. It's just that you haven't won back on track. That's what it made us And i think we need on sell sometimes attaching these additional sometimes hidden meanings to things that happen in our business and blowing into something more than actually ease at again. This comes down to this idea of I'm hesitating to say mental toughness. Because it's not so much about mental toughness is more about mental resilience because it doesn't say an lots of people think that resilience is is about being up to bounce back from things not necessarily about bouncing back. Resilience is about being able to recognize when you are in the middle of something but it's a tough situation but also understanding that just because you're in the middle of something that is tough situation. It doesn't mean he's going to be that way forever. Thank you so important. Yeah and i think another report competitive is self knowledge because On this why has helped me with his. You know the notes sing writings have journal against so. I can notice the lakers and his feelings and but she's seasonal pounds and things like that not whole load all that After these visa why you see a little bit how you did innocent way but you know are completely novel before i say so noting the contest yet laugh yourself self-knowledge self-knowledge knowledge Because one of the things. That really helped me massively this week tonight. The decision that i've made is the are no. I'm not very good are yes. We talked about not very good. But when i can't take action but also not very good dots. Living in a state of i am so many people said oh. Well you've got no rush to sell the house. Just sit tight david stop near the icon. I colored light now. I have to just calm caught. Sit by is going to be way or no way on the flight. I'd to have sit as much as i. As much as i can most purity because that's a different thing but book search deep. What direction you to be headed in every way you gonna be liberty something not whatever. I'm just not good at that. Point said knowing that helps me to figure out you know what is the best way for me all sometimes just knowing you know when you have how to set back in business in have to deal with it. 'cause he could be self in a completely completely. I think i mean. I think he's a hugely important thing for business owners to do as much work as they can about understanding themselves because then you understand can react in certain situations you understand what iran patents on your end cycles are iran seasonality to these things with a home vinyl or not. You can understand yourself and understand how you might respond to something and then you can. You can start doing the work of picking. Esl thought when Prompts you giving yourself a little bit too much in the way of negative self tool can enact thing and and you know also learning to be your own chain leader. Which i think is something. The loss of people terrible at You know they don't understand how to be their own. Best friend Well they don't understand how to how to be there unchanged or how late themselves when they've done something well Whichever that took me ages to workout because this is a childhood memory thing I come As long as i can remember. I have really annoy people because i'm good. Thanks i i find it easy to pick things up. I find it easy to look at something to model people to do. Whatever so as a consequence. I was good. Acquired lostock eight and you would not believe the stuff like highway because okay so by a show she shows off of she does so relearned was that it wasn't good to be good. Well i meant was to hide. Things i learned was to never tell myself on at something. Is that showing off. And it is ages one. Pick and to go dag nubby. I am proud. I am really proud of being able to look at something. What college try that. Let me try that and actually being could act now. Let's not say everything. What injuries though there was some things that i'm terrible apps but tells being able to congratulate myself things i'm good at is also recognizing but that doesn't mean. I think i'm good accuracy. 'cause i know yeah and just because other the people might hang up. That's bad problem. Yeah as the site. I know the thing. So i've gone could live living in limbo now. I'm not good at. Don't be able to take you know my decisions. Member more talented not tara. One of our china's members he did a fantastic Line they should maps and you know what he did that because he did. My profile schadeck nebula made so much sense to me. his very wars. You know that my top one is is spirit. Which made basically as. I don't like people telling me what to do on my destiny shoulder of my own destiny. Thank you very much and spirit wasn't mind. But i'm with you on that i. I'm pretty confident. There is no way either of us. Arabica have somebody that we cool boss ever again. It's sorry Yeah absolutely absolutely talked about in yourself is important because then that does help you to them that recipients and that ability to recognize something for what he is. And that's not to say that recognizing this knowing yourself means that you will never feel the down of not winning contracts or something. Not going your way kosheh failed. That's nice You know there will be things that just don't work out the way. We would like them to work out. but what it does mean is that we will be able to Recognize it for the is and then know that. It's not going to be that way forever. An be ops. As well in the end the there will also be times when things just. That's fine you know nothing wrong with that actual so you go that you got people 'cause well toronto again so onto the dog walking digest anything to bring us sweet. What's jim she sitting in a chance. We were lucky not today about changing behavior. Now that she's getting a senior six. How you know in the past with the football and with those they really excited shots taking all the rest of it she would like literally. You know getting excited. She would in our old house have festivals back. They signed for but he was actually in the back of the house vegetables into the garden and so we were just generally generally the summer and so we'll be excited to deliver picks know the football the tanase yet all that sort of young sweat she would you immediately pick up on the road out into the garden and he was just opa but she doesn't do that slattery. The whole football last die hopeless all woke coach dinner of flame But i will start with certain that she was back in the bed columnist on nine. On a yeah. I'm not little bit. Wisconsin said just every now and again is just like he's he's quite happy in itself but he's just plodding along behind on walks and not rush get anywhere and it's different from having a. I've got to sniff everything might man. It's he just doesn't want to guy that quickly and it's comical just not just one time and he brought the for example. this morning. When i came back in from having been to the gym normally he will be off the bed in combat. The door to greet me and this morning. That kobe bullard and just wanted to learn. And yet don't you make the thanks. She seems to be spending more time in bed. you know really took She stops the spot. And i can. We'd been out somewhere last week. can we can.

"What up undisputed listener. It's rj young host of the number one ranked show. I am your fix for all things college football giving you the wrong takes all part of shannon and skip. May i always bow down when it comes to the college football. You know i'm coming through with that. You know this is with the oklahoma. You know that the man shannon is on an abandoned state and we're going to keep it real right here right now subscribe to the number one ranked show wherever it is. You get your podcast on youtube. You know what it do. I hope to see you soon. Welcome to the undisputed podcast. I'm your host jenny. Taft this podcast is the full show from today's episode of undisputed from start to finish. They've got a busy slate. So skip shannon. let's get to it. Welcomed undisputed we are live malayan. Johnny was skip bayless and shannon sharpe. How do and tim did. Hey good to yesterday. I raised about my man lamb. I say he's going to have a breakout breakthrough season into superstardom. In about an hour on the show i read that. He's on the colbert lists. He went to jail city. Because i took him there. Where he he did have a breakout. I don't think got it. Sounds like my whole break. Exactly battery break you thinking about. That's not the kind of way one. And unfortunately that's kind of where we begin today with more. Kobe protocol issues in this one concerning cam news to stay away from patriots. Practice or wednesday after confusion over testing protocols mack jones. We'll take the first team rex until camera turns to practice on thursday. The patriots released a statement. That explain the mixup think. What do we misunderstanding about. Tests conducted away from nfl facilities and as required by the nfl nfl. P protocols campbell be subject to the five day entering cadence process before returning to the facility shannon. How much will this for camps villainy to win the starting job right now. I don't think that impacted at all. I think cam looked really good in the preseason. I don't really know how he looked in practice. But i think he's well enough in practice. That coach bela check lithium trotta. There every week. When they open up the game with the starters. And so i think cam will maintain lee and i think the difference is this year is because they have three preseason games not four you get an entire extra week because the last couple years back they would have four. Preseason game the game would end on thursday and then the following week you. La now the games in this week and it's not this so you basically have two weeks. Campbell will actually have two weeks to get back into a rhythm a nice throwing rhythm and and and maintain the level of. I believe he's in the lead. I believe he's in the lead. As far as matt jones can make joe's catch him. I don't think so. But i tell you what you are contested battle for a job. The last thing you want to do is let them get is specifically a one guy skip. I remember as a rookie. Hey i know. I'm going to battle. I get injured. nobody. I'm not the trainers i'm just going to suck it up trying to do everything i possibly can. Because i don't want them. I don't want anybody else to get any more risks than what i'm going to get got it. I get this about this misunderstanding. Let me tell you what's going on the nfl made it abundantly clear if you're not vaccinated you're going to be subjected to some very harsh the protocols about getting tested daily you break these protocol how much they're willing to find you so i don't believe it's a misunderstanding. The nfl players we want you to get vaccinated because we are not letting you blow up our season. We're not gonna be able to move games. Like we were last skip. We're not to be able to do it. So we want you to get vaccinated. And i was reading yesterday. Skip someone from the. I don't know if the cdc mayo clinic went and talked to the vikings and they said to this point no one has ever died from the bag thing but there a lot of people that have died because they've been unvaccinated there've been more people than over the last year and a half. This died from aspirin. Yep then died from taking the vaccine. So they're trying and it's been visors game pool. Fda approval so they're trying to do everything they possibly can to put these players minded. These is well. I need some more information. I need more information. Will you need more information about all the other things. That you've been ingested like naproxen like fella briggs like percocet vicodin like toward all you take all those things to go out there and play not so for me scale. I don't believe it's going to have an impact on the cam. Newton cam newton stars to season starting the season finishing. There's something entirely different. But i don't believe it'll have the impact that it probably would have in years past okay. My conclusion is this cannot help cam newton at this point because it does feel like. It's a competition. i will agree with you. I agree that cama slightly ahead in the competition. But it feels like mack. Jones is picking up steam. And i've told you from the start. I believe that in bill bill checks heart of hearts if he could sooner than later. Go forward with mack jones. He would be more comfortable with that than with cam. Newton because bill belichick right now is all about proving. Tom brady wrong. Who proved obviously last year bell. Check about as long as you can look right and obviously tom brady is going to visit foxborough in the week week. Four of the season. It's a sunday night game. And i believe in bills heart of hearts if he could be tom with his guy that he stolen the draft the way he stole brady was the fifteenth overall. Pick beat him with mack jones. That would be more pleasing to bill more satisfying to build more deeply gratifying to bill. Then to beat him with a cam newton who won his mvp obviously carolina. So it again. Bill did say. I can do something with that guy cam newton and he was for a while last year until guess what ham got calvin and it seemed to hit him pretty hard because he was never the same after he got. Kobe was not. We saw some spectacular performance especially at seattle they lost but but it was a chance to bounce it outside at the end or he could have capped off with an exclamation point an all time. Great one of the greatest of his career then it gets buffalo they also lost but cam played beautifully game. He looked like an mvp in that. And then covert hits and from that point on cam just slides into oblivion in winds up to thirty three qualified quarterbacks he had the thirtieth qb are at the end of the year thirtieth out of thirty three so it was a pretty all all around miserable season for season. Yeah after a sensational start preempted by guess. What kovic okay. So here we go again and we have an alleged miscommunication and this is where mystify but the nfl network just reported. I'm going to read their tweet per sources. There is a level of frustration. Internally with cam newton one important member of the organization believes this has quote unquote opened a window of opportunity for rookie. Mack jones i. I think we all right. Yeah and then goes on to say. The team practices day. And then the giants come for a joint practice on wednesday and thursday and cam could be back on thursday if but could because they play friday right or they play saturday not sure. Because i don't skip. I don't think he would. They must play saturday. If they're going to have joint progress on thursday. Yeah and and how can come back and play that game. I don't see that happening. But what do we know. Skipped tom brady talk radio sunday. Okay skill the starting quarterback. He doesn't want the backup to get any. Looks like don't want you looking at him. Why you brady took all the ribs. Why you've paid manning and drew brees takes risks looking at my backup okay so now back to vaccinated her unvaccinated. Obviously it's freedom of choice. Everybody has their own personal reasons to to do it or not. Do right and yet. The boston herald writes this morning. Only an unvaccinated players subject to this kind of locked down in while it's newton's choice to be vaccinated or not refusing. The vaccine sets up all kinds of risks and scenarios. Both for himself and the team and none of them are good agreed yes so he probably opened a small window. Is that enough. Big enough window for mac jones to seize the job or the next couple of practices one against the giants special. The one on wednesday will you let him get an opportunity that he probably wouldn't have had been there. That is correct in the boston. Herald concludes for a guy like cam newton. Who's fighting for his career. Why give jones the keys to the offense right now. Well that's your point about injury. We just keep it to yourself. So here's what lost me to begin with. If in fact the patriots t. as a team as their their executives somebody upstairs maybe to bill bless this. Somebody had to sign off on. That cam could leave the area. I don't know he's he's obviously lives in land need to go see a doctor in atlanta possible gray on an off day. Well once you leave your area you can't go get tested elsewhere. It's against the protocol because we're going to assume he's not vaccinate correct so if you leave. It's an automatic corentin of it's five years. It's four days plus one more and you have to obviously get tested at the end of the corn team to make sure you're okay right well if you're vaccinated you can. You're free to go so help me out. Did the patriots sign off on it because if they did then why is there a level of frustration internally with roten because the shouldn't they be complicit in this it would seem to be that but maybe maybe they didn't sign off on her. Maybe the statement said there was a misunderstanding. Maybe they're doing it as a misunderstanding just on campus. Maybe they were thinking okay. I'm going to see a doctor and they would think of. The doctor was in the area. They didn't know he was going to leave. The entire state may be may be it has to be some miscommunication upskill. It's not adding up but the point is that mack jones does have an opening in going to bring this backup. Because i told you this is. The kind of thing does not sit well with bill joe member. I'm going to go back to the post that he had whatever it was week or so ago cam posted about loyalty loyalty comma. I deserve it right well. Was it coincidence or not that. He happened to post it the day. After matt jones had his first appearance as a patriot and a preseason game he'd gotten a standing ovation not shocking and he had performed to rave reviews so it he saying to patriot nation. I deserve a little more loyalty than that. Then cam came back and said no. No no no no. It had nothing to do with on the field. It was all persons about his kids whatever. He went into a long explanation. Okay and you said okay. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt right. I'm not sure. Bill check is going to give him that benefit because the quinson of it was just a little too hard to believe he would post that right after that happened. Right right okay. So that was another. knock on cam. Bell checks mine in my point of view so he he's teetering because here's the next question. What if bill bell check decides and again you said that jones was the ready to play of all the quarterbacks. So what if bill check just plunges on this and he goes with mack jones in game number one would he keep cams the backup quarterback. 'cause i can't even imagine cam. Newton is a backup. He's just better than that. Like he's proven too much and it's beneath him to be a clipboard holder on play his best football in order to keep that job for the entire season or he will be a backup or he's going to be an unemployed quarterback so that leads to this question. If let's just go all the way to the bitter end wh if he goes with mack jones in game one and he just cuts cam. Newton says. I'll just take brian heuer's my backup. Because he's a a longtime proven backup. He's been with the millersville times. He knows it so they'll check saying it'll be less pressure on mac. I'll take some pressure off the kid right because if cams looking over your shoulder yeah. That's that's a big. If is not like as a big financial burden to keep camp there basically paying them minimum money got a lot of money tied up and incentives going to super bowl. Go into pro bowl. Y'all pro this yards that yada yada yada but as far as just base money. There's not a whole lot tied up but one thing that we know about coach jake. He valued team over individual in the most important thing to him is team okay. What is cam doing. Could possibly harm to team being unvaccinated and putting the team at risk because now all of a sudden he gets cold but again and now he's out another word you put yourself in front of the team. We know how coach belichick feels about player that he deemed it is is is being felt and team. Patriots does not come first okay. So it's incomprehensible to me. That cam would choose not to get vaccinated. He may have a personal reason. I don't know. And that. I would appreciate if i heard it. I'd say okay. I on that but to me from the outside looking in if i were in those shoes or cleats right now and i'd be saying i need to be vaccinated because i've opened a little window here of opportunity and plus i'm a little bit vulnerable here. I'm not giving them a reason. Yeah i don't put jones and that's correct. And i'm not giving bell check a reason to cut me because i'm at more risk now to get cove a second time and have more problems with it right okay. So in the end. Is it possible that that he's risking getting cut. And then that leads to the final question. Would anybody else pick cam. Newton right now is he teetering on being out of football. Who i'm i'm trying to rack my mind. Who is like really quarterback deficient because a lot of these teams get they the draft and they got know they got rookie. Quarterback's well they seem to be added that position. Your broncos are still struggling right. they don't seem to l. o. Drew lock had a big game the other night but nothing. He's gonna win. The job probably will but are they set would be better off with teddy and drew lock over cam newton if there were a big injury to quarterback. Oh yeah that's all. We possibility always a possibility. Then maybe cam would get you run. You got to come in and you gotta learn the whole that whole new offense right a reason. Why a lot of times. Quarterbacks don't change things in the middle of the season all the other positions because you ask an awful lot of we got and we think some smartest players to come in and learn an entirely different system and be up to speed and be able to be able to take off with it. Yep so i remind you about a year ago as we headed into week one. What happened to tyrod. Taylor with the charger yes. He had unfortunately an injection in his rib. Week two to three two okay since we started this year and he got the injection and with really when a little too far and it wasn't his fault run wasn't because he wasn't vaccinated. Just just happened. It was a bad advertisement and it was the team doctor's fault and guess what happened. He got wally pipped as they say about justin. Herman get back into the gate so leaks. Tyrod got a second shot down carolina. Another shot carol. The houston texans. I mean it's texan soaring. Yeah so the point is that you have to be careful about these opportunities for the these young quarterbacks because if they seize the day and our respect mack jones. I think you will give you all these guys. I don't i think. Ceiling is lower than a trae lance or zach wilson or trevor prevalence that we saw last night. We're about to talk about but the point is that you better be careful because the mac jones winning national championships last year jones has played at the highest levels of college and played very well. And i think he's very tough mentally and physically took a lot of punishment. Let coach but you know. He's got to be tough mentally physically emotionally. Psychologically because you know co-ceo coach saban got basically he learned everything gonna come. Check us a defense according cleveland. Okay so in the end. I believe cams and big jeopardy right now more than you do. I think this is really thin ice for him. Well he brought it on himself scale he. He brought this on himself. The nfl has made it abundantly clear if you read the protocol when they came out with everybody man why do all this and unvaccinated plans. Can they can go here. I can't leave and go see my family then absolutely right go get vaccinated and then you can have guests at the hotel or then you can leave the hotel because you do lead the whole taylor and you're unvaccinated the find that we're going to levy on you is gonna be steep you. Think twice about leaving the hotel again. Yes oh i don't. I don't look. This was collectively bargain. This is what the nfl is what the owners is laid out. Because they're not going to. Have you blow the enough because the you and reckless yeah. That's not going to happen. And finally the boston herald pointed out that three former patriots of some stature have spoken up and out four mack jones. That would be rodney harrison damien woody and rob ninkovic if all spoken on that they believe mack jones should start game one. So there's a groundswell for the kid and this is what cameras up against. And this is what he is risk but like you say give but he put himself in harm's way by doing this by living them to let coach belichick get extra loot because he's not there for the next. What these taking comeback thursday. So he's not he's not there so all these reps where he would have been splitting cam could have been while while also. Yeah now. this is all matt now said. Yesterday he didn't get off to the greatest start but he finished really well. Well i will remind you in the preseason. So far kamara's played twenty nine snaps. Mack jones has played seventy seven snaps. So they're trying to see what they got and be get him ready as fast as they can. But here's another question skip. They play on sunday. Who's going to play. We'll give you a big indication of going to start. If cam to the playoff. Thank camp. I think camps start. Yep yep follow me to again we. Do you know why free trials renew without your consent.

Nine of ten for one hundred twenty three yards and two long touchdown passes. Jesus did that all in the first quarter while also taking no sex and not turning the ball over while china pains still. Hasn't officially named a started appear was is beginning to run away with the job. Now would have some big shoes to fill after drew. Brees retirement so shannon. How close can he come to being drew brees. He's not going to be drew. Brees drew brees his historical quarterback skip eighty thousand pass yards. Five hundred and seventy one touchdown almost sixty eight percent. completion percentage. There are different quarterbacks. He possessed something that the saints hadn't had in their office very long time. And that's a vertical threat. He can throw the ball. Love your hair scandal. Would you say jamie says a better armed drew brees about having. Yes yes get people to understand. James was the number one overall pick were reason. He was rookie of the year to got through for fifty two hundred yards. Here's problem turnovers. Can they cut down the turnover. The question was never about whether he could throw the football. We know he can throw the football. Yup sean payton is going to have to real in some of that look bra. We don't every play. Be a home run. You don't have to squeeze every ball into a tight window. Sometimes you gotta just eight take that check down. And that's what was so good at drew minimize the risks. And so that's i think the thing is we. Sean is gonna have to understand that. He had fifteen withdrew skipped. They know each other backwards and forwards. That was another coach on the field. They tailed the offense to withdrew. Did really well. A lot of the short intermediate throws guys making plays for now once they get cal. Michael thomas back. Because calloway some big time catches last night skill because that could easily pass. It appears get the ball to the one yard line. They were there he. He doesn't get the completion. But that kid may to outstanding catches. Get michael thomas. Back in the fold skip. They might be onto something but he's not gonna be he's not gonna be drew brees but what he will give you the ability to throw the ball over. Their heads withdrew last year. And if you look at tampa tampa bay squad everything they play cover two and is basically twenty two meg drew. You're not going to run the football and we're going to force you to put the ball in tight windows because we don't believe we can. We can tell early on. We know this is not the same drew brees that we face what four or five weeks ago remember. He had like twelve cracked ribs at one point last. What would they get when they beat them. That sunday night game drew. They just went up and down the field tampa tale earlier home. You're not that guy. Yeah so we're not going anywhere. But i like this. I believe james. Winston won the job last night. I think they can find a rotation meal with serve his role like he did with drew brees. I never thought skip that. He was going to be at every down quarterback. But i liked what i saw james. He's not gonna be drew. Brees the offense go look totally different. But i believe he can. He can be more than a serviceable quarterback. he's an oral overall draft. Pick for reason he was okay. Point number one i. I concur that to my eyes last night. James just ran away with the job with just basically those two throat right. They were spectacular bombs away. Kind of throws that. Bruce arians would love. That's no risk it no biscuit. And that's risk it biscuit on both of them. We know he can do that. I knew he could do that. going in. and the only reason i hesitate to just proclaim him the starter in hand him the job that he earned last night or one last night. Is that for some reason. Sean payton has it in his heart and in the back of his mind that he snatched tastes them hill off. The waiver wire cut by green bay and he said watch this in. Sean payton is the ultimate. Watch this guy. Nfl bill checks coach of the like that star. But sean payton is like watch what i do. I've got some genius here. And i'm gonna flash it for you i'm gonna take that kid off that scrapheap and i'm going to show you. He can't and he said this before. He can be a playoff quarterback he says of tastes them hill. Right what happened last year. James was there and drew got hurt and there were four games that needed another starter and who was it takes days the meal in for four games. And how did he loo look so good. He looks good. Drew brees back when he wasn't helped the drew. Look that is correct but tastes did win. Three of those four games albeit at philadelphia against a really bad eagles team with jalen hurts starting. I believe that was his first game. Not lost philly philly. Beat them the as long as they lost nickname now. He's actually his best game. He's like twenty eight of thirty eight here somewhere but the point was he kept going and then he got to beat atlanta twice and he got the beach your broncos and care beating the he did because they mostly just ran the ball. Rick okay so the point was he did start tastes over james last year to me. James this is like a godsend for for sean payton. Because he's six feet four inches tall. He can move around prayer. Well sometimes a little awkward looking with this passes in a runs but but he is athletic. He was a good baseball player and he has a huge arm. It's it's big enough to be on the big arm lists. Who reminds you hear manager. Tom brady is offensive coordinator by relief which he moves. Yep now his arm is a little better than byron but the way he the way he moves like you fix for. But he's not blew it. He's not he's not fluid but he can move and all i know. Is that under aaron's in that one pre brady year. He threw thirty. Three touchdown has only because lamar went completely. Mvp crazy and through thirty six ramos was second with thirty three through a fifty two yard fifty two hundred yards but he threw thirty picks better picks and he lost five fumbles That's thirty five. Turnovers yes why. Your team went seven and nine yard. Say you're at least nine and seven but it was seven and nine because you kept giving the football away. let's just say for the sake of argument skip. instead of thirty seven a turnovers. he has eighteen. Yeah their playoff team. 'cause they didn't add anybody other than tom brady. Everybody that's all. That team came back for the previous year in chris. Godwin mike evans. They add okay. They added wrong but that was a playoff team. If he doesn't turn the ball over. All tom brady will come in. And like you know what he threw more touchdown but he didn't even come close to the turnovers and that was the difference. That's the difference in winning and losing his leaks there. The by berry tiny margin tiny talented. Everybody meets everybody got outstanding coaches. You turn the ball over there to fail. You get beat okay. I'm surprised that sean payton hasn't embraced the opportunity to turn jameis winston into a mobile quarterback. He has pro bowl abilities roaming. That's why i say. I mean but to make him a perennial right right. Where were you could be a perennial playoff team. He's not gonna be able to put up the listen drew. Brees is just right. You can't you can't compete with that. But is he strong enough mentally to at least step into the void and survive and thrive. I believe especially if sean payton buys completely in. Because i'm not sure there's a better play. Call than sean payton. I'm not sure. There's a better quarterback maker. Then sean payton so. Wouldn't it be a match made in heaven where you have a guy who just needs to get clean up right like if you can just take the garbage out of his system if you can take away all the bad ideas just start to clean those up and cut them in half. Then you've got big talent right right. I'm looking at the numbers. You put up in the years in tampa. And he threw one hundred. Twenty one touchdown passes eight interceptions. We'll let still pretty great. Yeah it's hard to. It's hard to find that it's hard to find that kind of an arm that ability throw that many touchdowns rises so the point is. I'm surprised sean. Just hasn't embraced like. Hey i've got a guy here. I've got a guy who's big talent but you said you open and but was is there. I got a guy nobody else wanted. Because what did i say i jameis. Winston was the number one overall pick. He was looking for fifty two hundred yard so he already got their got cut several times. Everybody said you can't play that position. Yeah i did with it. Yeah okay you can still do some of that with him as you pointed out because james has no cachet right now. James is going to be happy to have the starting. Yeah like he said after the game last night is been so long. Since i started a foot run really. It's that long so he he can't demand or commanding if you bring back in your tastes them hill packages that i couldn't believe drew brees would sit still for. He did yes. We're occasionally you split out. Jamison hawaii al tasting pops into the holiday and all of a sudden. He's the quarterback or maybe he's the tight end or maybe he's the running back or who knows you can do so many things with him because he runs four four right like he he can really run yes and he can run over people and he can do. E- can catch the foot by. That was tvos. Problem was never caught a pass in his life. If this kid can catch passes absolute auto. You're talking about swiss army knife that can just cut you to pieces right. Why wouldn't you just just re and and back putting back in that package because we saw four games. And i think you're eye test even after that philly loss. He played pretty well net loss. He throws it okay but he didn't door as well as james says he does and he doesn't throw it well enough to be a winning starting quarterback to my office. I don't see it. So the point is james flashed that took some guts last night. That was national. Tv game and you gotta go man go up more quiz calloway. Kid has come from. Yes here we go again. Michael thomas kind came from nowhere but he was a second round pick. You couldn't run. He didn't run fast. Well neither did this kid. This kid ran. Four five five coming out tennessee. And guess what he was completely. Undrafted won't talk about a godsend and they say you just been lighting up every camp practice. So if micheal. Thomas can kind of remake his peace with them and get back in the fold rightly. Say he's on track to do right. Well all of a sudden you're gonna have the makings. They have the makings because their defense is still to be very good right. And they're going to have to lean on that defense scale Because right now. I don't see anything in the running game. Yeah latavius murray. I don't see anything running game. So jameson is going to have to play really well. He's gonna need to throw the ball extremely well while minimizing turnover with because. That's what gets you be in. This league is turning the ball over. But i believe sean payton. It is in sean pains mind. I can take this guy that nobody else wanted that. Everybody only thinks he can do. Is you know play special teams and every once in a while. Come in and give me a spell me at quarterback. But i can take this guy and tournament to a playoff-caliber quarterback okay. I don't believe you can do it. I don't believe it can be an every down guy. I could be wrong. But i all things. We need. Cool ten times out of ten james the quarterback than then takes him he okay. I'll buy that ten times out of ten these saints make the playoffs this year and the nfc is loaded. Yeah i mean you got green bay. Still in the mix you got tampa bay still in the mix. You got three teams in the with. At least two of them can possibly come out there that you do go third. You'll leave you'll least division. One team is going to come out of that. So could they make it. They could i still have. You'll be tough though. I have so much respect for sean payton in that defense and that defensive coordinator that you knew well from denver day rally. Yes that i think. They're a playoff team. Still because i listen. I dive ouch for james when he was a number one overall. Pick all kinds of issues at florida state. But he rose above them and he's got big time talent. And i think if sean payton will just embrace him and put his arm around him and say let's figure this out together that they will be a playoff team this year they could possibly get three teams out of the west. Yes so they could possibly. They could possibly they could possibly make the playoffs and probably gonna take what nine eight ten and seven the lease possibly get in. But i can see them doing that. I don't think they're going to be like when they had drew skimp. Every year was twelve four thirteen and three. They will always have one of the. I don't know if they can get those kind of numbers this year. But i i think that is outside chance. They make the playoffs. They had a home playoff game last year and they got brady. Yeah well yeah. They had yeah they wanted division. Yeah yup aric is gonna talk about a different. Qb different team right now. Maybe some struggles last night. Trevor lawrence jaguars. I often struggled moving the ball last night against the saints and after four straight punts and only one i. Al lawrence was able to get jackson position for field. Goal for the starters only points of the night. Urban meyer said the offense was struggling to get into some rhythm so she had an. Are you seeing a star or just a starter starbucks gift. You're gonna have to skip not clemson. We're unless you play alabama you play ohio state. You have comparable talla you go through the jacksonville. Y'all got the least amount of talent army is gonna have to understand that. This is not ohio state. This is not the university of florida. You're not the most talented team. That's taking the field. As a matter of fact you're going to be one of the least talented team taking the field. You in the houston texans and happened to be in the same division skip. He may actually play each other day. Who golo without yuck skill he made some throws last night that lets you know that this kid special talent. Now you're going to have surround with talent but if you look at troy choice groveling his rookie season you there. Yes it took you to get a meal. They they won one game. One and fifteen. Steve walsh won that game. So we take you get payton. Yeah impeding head. Marvin has in marshall. Faulk led the league in interceptions. Yep so this notion when it happened. Skip that now. We expect rookies to come in and automatically just go to. The playoffs is hard making the playoffs. Let alone rookie now. Every new wasn't a while you get a situation like russell. Wilson will skip builds a few and far between that guy. Russell comes in third round. Pick beat the ga got in free agency and paid ten million dollars a year and beats them out and get you to the playoffs in his rookie season. Those that didn't happen very often. But i saw kid that can make throws that can make plays off. His allowed isn't very good. And i'm not so sure. He has a whole lot of talent around him. And so he's going to struggle so the days of him being that clemson and he's the best player on the field and they just blow what beaten beaten coastal carolina skipping georgia tech and that's over urban you at university of florida when you got keyboard all those. Nfl star. There's going to be coming over well. Urban said now every games alabama. Yes exactly because guess what. Alabama great of alabama was. They might have had players on that team. That's in the pros. Everybody that they play the pro and is not easy. Trust me having played this game man. You cherish the wind there. That's why they celebrate them. We skip. It's like yeah. This is hard to win in the. Nfl is very hard in urban trip lawrence. Yeah they're about to find out firsthand. So i watched trevor orange. And i watch him some more and i keep trying to go over the moon by in on him and i can't yet and i'll put a year on it because i'm i'm waiting to see if he wows me if i have that moment of wow where i say okay now i got it to your point. They're not a very good football team last night. They played without their starting center and their starting left guard. So we got to give him that. The other three were starters. He wasn't well protected because he got the you know what kicked out of the season games. Yup they hit him way more than he needed to be hit in a preseason game and then he took it upon himself because i think he just got frustrated after walk because he couldn't get the ball neons zone and to his credit on a third-down he took off. And just said. I think we have this play where he just took off the middle of the second quarter and said okay. I'll do it by myself. It was not smart. Yeah he can move a little bit for six five. And that's just that's a bad idea that had bad idea that was like the rg three play. Remember we're at cleveland. You've got hurt helicopter. Play the ravens. Who is loading nada. That's the kind of play you do not want subject yourself to in this league at that speed right even in a preseason game is just too dangerous he needed to worry about. Skip seventy seven coming falling on that shoulder. Everything's bad about that when it was happening. I was just cringing. Because i know how fragile quarterbacks can be they just don't carry the ball that much and they don't take that kind of punishment and he put himself in all kinds of dangerous. Spots there. Right had shoulder knee's been colorado skip. He gives that and gets out about all those guys. You know ruining. That's true. So at clemson trevor lawrence through ninety touchdowns to seventeen picks sensational yes. He was a great college football player on a great college football or at least a very good one. I don't know if we could go great but they were very good a loaded team. Yes and stars on the defense out of guilt. And now i look this team and this quarterback and say can he lift them into respectability. I'm i'm not sure can because now we come down to intangibles. What was the big controversy few months back ahead of the draft. There's a sports illustrated article by the game. Trevor lawrence said. I don't need football to feel worthy like football's not they be all in the end all in my life and he said i don't have this huge chip on my shoulder where i think everybody's out to get me and i'm trying to prove everybody wrong. He said i can't manufacture that because he came from some money and he was always the golden child. Fourteen to fifteen. Everybody knew he's going to be the first pick in the draft so it came pretty easily form. And i'm not saying he didn't have to work at it but tom brady was a six round. Pick as we all know. Tom brady is obsessed with winning. Football games at age. Forty four if i could just pour few ounces of tom brady and this kid. You'd have a world beater. But i'm not sure. His his motor runs that hot. Right he plays with the nonchalance that leaves me a little nonplussed. Where i i want to see a little more body language in the only flash of it was when he finally got frustrated and said okay. I'm going to do this by myself. If you guys can't do it i'll just do it myself. And it wasn't the smartest play. He looks poised enough. He looks like he belongs right out there. In to your point he did make that early. I throw where he if we see that. He rolled in the end zone. This is a very difficult throw four also took it right in the face that separate authority better than that to chenault yup. It's a big time throw. It's a pro football throw and yet did you see the end of the play or you got to make him give himself and he tumbled about three times around end over end. Well okay so you say okay. I see the talent. Yes now it comes down to intangibles. Leadership charisma dynamism roll. Those things that go into playing quarterback. I haven't seen that yet. I'm not sure about that yet. We saw the picture on. Espn last night that he provided where took the receivers on an outing. They went out on a boat ride. They looked to be having a lot of fun. Okay i'll give you that one. I like that nice start but do you care enough about it. Does your motor burn hot enough that it. It inspires the whole team or do they see you as just the basic surfer dude. Who's just like whatever you know. Because he has a lot of whatever to skip is for quarterback to lead. If people don't think that he's willing to die for this it's got to be the most important thing. And i know people got different hobbies but i've never met anyone that was great at any particular thing. If it wasn't the end all be on is just. It's just hard. I've never seen anybody if you look at all the great athletes you look at all the great from the elon musk. They don't just have to be forced figures. Give look at the people in business. Yup them into up getting divorced because why that was the most important thing and football when they get married their significant other spans. That this is the most important thing. It's just hard for me to believe i. It was for me and john. I knew it with it for him. If so we clean. He knew it was important to me. I knew that important hips okay. Let's go let's make this thing happen. Yeah you have to those guys get because if you can't they read what they read and you say way it is what it is basically and you know it's not the end all be all is not the most important thing. Yeah boo this. I'll pay my bills this house and my kids to private school and i live in a nice gated community. Yep so yeah this is the end all be all for me so to your point and i completely believe in your point one thousand percent. Because i'm at fault for all. That's how i live my life in trevor lawrence. I see star quality. Not sure i see a stars temperament team. I don't know. I don't know if i see star commitment star obsession. What whatever that is. I scale there the other some other position that you can get by just because the talent but that position requires so much of you. Mentally physically emotionally psychologically skipped you got to be old in that position. You not well. He's got the ability that we know towel around. Talent devoid and dj. Sharks still got banged up. I think yeah So he'll he'll be back. They need a deeper threat. Right stretched marvin marvin jones's equality of receiver should note. Needs to take another step forward They need to get a solitaire game. I mean they got tight end guide that can block can do catch five rows but they need guys that can well opened it up. They cut their seven stringer. Kept six six ends and they still don't have a tight end right so they had some intangibles right. Is those get a list of nfl analyst ranked quarterbacks in a dozen different categories going into the season and to no surprise. Aaron rodgers and. Tom brady tops of many of them. Rogers took the top spot over. Brady and accuracy decision making talk it presents. Meanwhile brady was able to come out on top in mechanics. Competitiveness and field vision shannon. Did they get this. Yeah i think it is killed The only thing. I just skipped for competitive skip give. That's something that we can't measure. We don't know what burden inside a person the all these other things that we could actually measure. They're they're they're like a tangible things that not only can we see you know. They're measurable arm strength okay. I don't doubt about that. Agassi roger this wrong. Four hundred twelve touchdowns to only eight eighty nine interceptions mechanics. No question i would not teach quarterback mechanics air roger. Because he told a lot of back we are back foot bra. You how you doing that. This ranking had aaron. Rogers second to tom brady. Yeah i would. I would not thank you for the way home. And roger throw the football and yet mahomes ranked third in mechanics. So i took the kids. Don't try dude is right is a whole. But if i can't you doing this. Yeah not playing quarterback but kept look it just going to show you at at the age of forty four brady is still thought of every top one to three quarterback even at the age of forty four and i. I don't think there's any question that we know that. These are best quarterbacks in football rogers brady and behold josh allen were slightly behind a lot of these things but i do think they got it right skipped. I expect rogers to play even better considering that what he put us through this this what do you put the packers and their fan through this off season. I expect him to play better. But i expect tom. I think tom i don't know if he wrote. Maybe throws forty touchdowns. But i think he cleans up some things to question. Skip how do you. How do you replicate. Because last year seemed like a magical season like it was meant to be. Hollywood is never written a story like this. We've never seen a story like this normally takes a couple of years in the in the peyton last season gives to win the super bowl. The right off into the sunset. Tom this is gonna be my first chapter. I'm elise hu new team. Go go to another team in the middle of the pandemic. it's no preseason first chapter so he just getting started his book wild playing on a torn mc l. So i do believe they got it right there. There's a lot of things you can see their one two or three and a lot of different category a. I don't think the pentothal either guys very tough workout with philipe. The other guy was night run. Both were unranked. Second a reaction ability. Obviously what you up script. we know. that's not what tom but i do. Believe scrambling tommy scrambling. But he found the word surviving needed to do and his grandma. I do believe they got it right skill but looking at it i feel tools on both sides so i believe they got it right skill. Here's where this ranking loses me. Okay we helped me out decision making is what who's who's one two and decision-making br roger him home brought rogers and brady and Roger is one okay. How is aaron rodgers. A better decision maker than tom brady. I just can't fathom the greatest decision maker i've ever seen. Is tom brady. And i'm talking about over twenty years. I think the thing is when you look at forty eight four forty eight touchdowns four in a sessions as you look at the low. He i mean he's a board aboard a half to one touchdown interception guy so that lets you know. He doesn't turn the football over. So i think that was golden to the decision making process. Okay so are we just doing regular seasons do we throw in the postseason when it matters the most. That's my problem here. I'm going to remind everybody since. Aaron rodgers one that long ago super bowl with mike mccarthy is his head coach aaron rodgers as a starter in the playoffs says seven and eight under five hundred. He's one in four in. Nfc championship games for his career. One in four including the loss to brady last year at lambeau and when i look at the seven eight. It's it's flawed because of the seven wins. You got the desk catch game. Which is debatable beta. We got the mason crossbar game. When mason crosby made two of the strangest look and feel goals. I've ever seen from fifty six yards and fifty one yards to to burn my boys at home and that was back in their rookie years rolling and then we had the odell boat trip. Game up at lambeau. That's a pretty easy one. Because they just gave you that one thing so dell dropped to big passes early in that game and then there was. You got to beat joe webb. You got to be kirk cousins. And then even last year aaron donald had to play with and i couldn't even seem on. He was completely nullified by his cracked ribs. And who is the starting quarterback. I can't even remember his name. Because it was the backup quarterback because jared goff had the screw in his the brightness thumb right okay so there there are a lot of flawed wins in the seven that he has seven and eight losses. Okay so my point is when it's time who makes the better decision. Let's just tom brady. And do i need to bring up. What happened on first first and goal at the in the nfc championship game in the fourth. Quarter think all we do have that. I didn't think we had that that was what was. Football is a good decision mojo and then here we go third down. Is this a great decision because you could or run with it and you decide to whip it across your body back into double coverage at the goal line to devante and you got no shot at that. You can't zone pulling out a small sample zach but those were deplace so my point is when it's really time to make the decision and the throw. I'll take brady every time. Because he's proven it at the high level again and again and again and again and again. What about do this okay. That was fourth down. Okay it was. That decision made or was he just knocked woozy. As i believe he got concussed in vision he should have known what it was. All right well. Is that a decision on a read. Does anybody speed. Read better than tom brady i. I don't think so. So that all goes into decision making and accuracy. I'll give you accuracy during regular seasons. 'cause aaron gets on roles where he's just unconscious like everything is right on the money. I will give you that so over. Long periods of regular season games. I will give you slightly more accurate. But i will give you more accurate under fire under pressure in the biggest plus games and in super bowls. Because we've only seen aaron in one obviously so the point is that we get to pocket presence right into errands one in pocket presence. I don't understand that because tomsk got the sweetest pocket feet i've ever seen. He's got the best six cents of knowing windows. Slide left slide right by extra half second. So i can get this ball off. I just. i don't think we've ever seen better pocket presence than i mean. Neither we know they they. In some of these instances skip they use the tie it rogers in braehead tied and pocket presence. I would've disagree Took the only got rodgers fourth in touch. Come on i'll get homes. I don't know of mahomes touch. And i think russell wilson was third as far as to guilt is hard for me to say. There's two other guys that got a better touch with football than aaron rodgers. What i mean looks. It looks like for me. If you were to add it all up roger would be one brady would be to mahomes would be three industrial. It looks like because brady had four under rings and roger has one unranked and rogers. Lowest ranking seven were braided lewis out of the in ranking night. So for me. I think it would be rogers. One brady to mahomes three. Do you believe your man. Aaron rodgers could have gotten thrown into that pandemic situation in tampa with a brand new coach brand new offense all new teammates in pulled off. What brady pulled off. Would that you know could have. It comes leadership they got seven guys all the top one hundred and if you go one twenty they might have nine because you're gonna have a drunk so skip seven and nine the year before. Yeah who talk about a turnaround how 'bout leadership tom. Brady's should be ranked one in nobody else should even be in the top ten. Yeah yeah homeboy. Really you skill. Tom brady you. He was down twenty. Fold nothing on houston. Texans brought them back down ten nothing on the tennessee. Titans brought back. He was down by ten in the super bowl. Brought them back. Nobody ever been down by ten points or more in three consecutive playoff game at walked. Everybody every tom brady seems to meet him on. The biggest stage brady plays great outplays factory mohammed to fasten. His defense was outstanding. You notice give. They don't do that. Don't pretend like this clash between brady homeboy. His defense got the man couldn't get any protection on brady. Won that game by twenty two points. Overpass devious really skill. Now we thought would happen when defense get after tom. We thought derail did to him. We thought with the as to why with the rams icago. We thought that skill to do that now. I saw tom brady put on masterful performances. When it started to matter down the stretch they got crazy hot when he beat atlanta twice he just took them really atlanta second. Will the defense got scorched in the first app. Go look it up. Goldie look what happened at atlanta. They were hopelessly behind at halftime sodas. We've been twenty eight three the same that same guy. Yeah so i'm good. Don't worry about it guys. Were i got this. Yes no quarterback played better in the four playoff games then. Tom brady did easy to say because he wanted. Well i mean just played better. You just outplayed everybody of. I don't think i really honestly don't think. He outplayed aaron rodgers in the championship. Game he threw three. That game was out of hand. Rogers should not even have an opportunity. To get back into ballgame. It was three turnovers. Brady had allowed them to get back into the ball. Told you what he decided to do. He lost both his starting safeties. He thought to throw a party in the third and fourth. 'cause you're tom said i gotta just chuck it. No i gotta just hope. We hit a big deep ball so that we can outscore him. How about deep is playing outstanding. How about i. Don't give them short feels. How'd i don't give this. Craig momentum how i do that okay well you know playing outstanding because air wound up with like three thirty one but that was after they had gotten a big lead. Would you shed the first class. The first time will check factor in this jack. Three facts that game. What tom brady do. Just before half-time skill right. He played unbelievable. I'd like i said he played. He played well. I don't think he played better. Their rogers air may had one bad decision. Well i felt he should and i know second. Guess i look at it. I'm looking at like you should have run. That chase them. Make them make him catch you at the corner begins on and now is the to conversion. But that didn't happen but This is a very interesting matchup. So you're saying aaron rodgers as we speak is still and always has been a better quarterback than tom brady. You believe you the quarterback. And i think that's the wrong est thing you've ever said giving up this fall. Could you like you like that. You like surveys. That's those aren't stat surveys survey when a survey but that's just a subjective rank will not face well if i look at accuracy. Yeah it is. Yeah yeah yeah. If i look at accuracy if i look at actors the i mean four hundred twelve touchdowns eighty nine picks and yeah forty eight and four. We feel the guy. Go forty five and six. We've seen him go twenty eight twenty eight two. Yeah yeah. I think he's more accurate. He has a high completion percentage in who has been the more accurate postseason quarterback tom brady. Tom has been in the whole season. More skit okay well again. That's maybe that's errands question. If i take talk if i take a if i take tom brady and put him in green bay and i pay take rather than put them in tampa. Would that defense who you think we well now that he's established a new culture each turn it in tampa bay patriot way to bay. What are you now would work knows you can in there and just push the button it. Shouldn't he be here in. Rogers would have been a disaster for aaron rodgers. One year ago this he made it culture. He can do that again. He recreate he created annoy new england. Tamp he can do that in green bay so in other words if i swapped position tom brady. We'll take the packers and beat era in the books. Hackers are deep football team. I like yeah yes he would absolutely he would. He just doesn't wanna live in green bay. That's the problem so they don't wanna dare skip i'm saying is that they seem to be one to our in the whether deal homeboy. Have something to say about that. Yeah well andy reid playing him more than any quarterback in the preseason so far because he says he's got to get used to his new offensive teams. The planet campus giving them. The blueprint play cover to run the football. And that's what i used to do. We are team players to cover to run out a cover to make them drop down there to get you so we give them one on one out here. Yeah you can't throw a team out of over to you've gotta run. They said you know what andy. We don't believe you. Eric mandingo be patient enough to run the football to get us out of cover too so we just go sit back here. Put hands on your receivers. just cheer. Okay so they better get into running the football skip got it become. What about your cowboy polo hall did it before you go. Where with all this counting his money. You want to know where we're decade arm. Strength and accuracy juicy salary on their seventy five. Twenty seven chambers. You money to win you you after your champion. Still hasn't named officials starter. Even after many are suing jameis. Winston will win it over taste. Impel after last night's performance there's always said it was a fifty fifty competition and even started hill over. Winston brees was hurt last season. So shannon wine. You think sean payton believes so much as a male as a starting. Qb because he wants to show everybody that he found. The guy turned guy that nobody else wanted. Skip and tournament toy starting quarterback and can win with this has been sean payton project for four years. That's basically what it's being. I believe jameis. Winston has a better are. He's about a quarterback he's able to do more. But sean payton wants to show. And that's that's how coach. I believe coach who are willing to take more credit for gather. They find in the later rounds and tournament and something as opposed to a first around peak because everybody spent the first or second round. Pick to be something you have to do something. You take a guy to six or seven around. That probably coach. Most gratifying thing. I took a six round draft pick. Would i turn them into yup whereas the story number one overall draft pick those expectations. You expected that so. I just think that that's what sharon wants to do. Charlotte wants to show everybody. I took a guy that yes he was a jack for us. He did a little bit of everything. A lot of people thought he was going to be a project. I took the project. I took jack. I turn him into a starting quarterback and every down quarterback and look. What how you like me now. That's what i'm capable of doing their about. Every coach the genius skip. Oh man my sister. My sister better here system. I take his player to beat him and take my players and beat him. So that's just how my coaching system meals. I don't believe that the case. I don't believe that's the case. I believe jameis. Winston is a better quarterback tastes. And i believe he's gonna win the job over tastes. He'll considering what i saw last night. I completely concur. I've never quite understood. Sean payton's fascination with a guy he did take off the green bay scrapped up. He was. He was cut by the pack. Yes and he hit the waiver. Wire and sean payton snapped him up and said i can go places with this young man. I'm sure he's a great young man. He's now not that young. He's thirty one years. Got a late star. Has you know he got a couple of injuries at byu. So thank you play fifth year senior. Yeah so what are we see here. We see again sean. Payton said he can be a playoff quarterback. He is a special athlete far as all around ability intact. Run it if there were an nfl decathlon pigtails. Some hills win it. I'm talking about if you had to do every skill and the nfl right including blocking and tackle. Yeah he definitely one he would win it because he's a big kid was to go to forty easy. Yup maybe two fifty and he can catch it and he can run with it and he can run because he ran four far enough. You can still run four four. It looks like he's lost some weight this year breath but he's for this year or four so he is legit speed for his size and yet even though he's got a what i say he has a decent arm. I'm going to give him a decent. It ain't james and he's fairly accurate but he's not deadly accurate. I'm not seeing him. Have the capability of throwing the football at the highest level. And if you can't do that you problems okay. So who is the most compared to taste them and vice versus tim tebow who is recently retired by urban meyer and the nfl creek. So what's the difference here. If if i had to rate and debate those two guys compare and contrast will obviously. He's got a better arm than tibo. Not a bigger arm but been more accurate arm. Tim tebow he can run definitely run faster than tibo. Nifty or. I don't know if he can make you miss. Quite the way tibo could in his glory days for your broncos. When he turned him into the number one rushing attack and yet he can do all kinds of things like catching tibo could blocking. Tvos lost tackling. You just never just didn't have to tackle by but this kid can do every play. Special teams play special teams. And i do not doubt you could put him at linebacker for a game in a pinch. Abedi be decent. I bet he'd figure it out on the fly but the problem is he got to start four games in. Did you ever see special in those four games. Because i did not. I saw him at philadelphia against jalen hurts when jalen ended up out playing but but tastes and put up decent numbers that that was a bad philadelphia defense. Twenty eight of thirty eight for two ninety one. Not bad two touchdowns to one interception. He ran for thirty three more yards in his. Qbr was sixty seven which is decent. It was a pretty good showing right then. He lost that game but he beat atlanta twice anyone at denver when they just shut it down and said let's just run it in the ground. Let's run them in the ground. You've been those three wins. His defense gable twenty eight total points. Okay well if you give up A little over nine points a game. You're going to win a lot of gave. Regardless of your quarterback of the game added lanna tastes ran it fourteen times for eighty three yards so that really contributed to the threat. So that was more tibo ask because t-boz kind of fifty fifty run paths but tibo could late plays i. I don't see that special late-game charisma that tibo had. I don't see it from tastes. I don't see the playmaking. He'll make plays occasionally downfield catching a big pass or touchdown pass but he's better as a gadget guy. Yes right then. He is starting quarterback. So i don't know it's almost like stubborn. Pride pride goeth. Before the fall. When i'm gonna show i'm gonna show you and i i would think i would think that james juice slammed that door shut last night. But no one to sean payton does whatever the hell sean payton. Yeah so. I wouldn't write this thing completely off. I just know your eye test my eye test. After the first touchdown pass last night. I said that's just too good. There's no way sean payton or anybody else can watch that game. Field is tastes him. He'll was comparable to james last night. No there's no way he let tastes them play just about the rest of the game. You played a bunch of slabs and he'll occasionally make a play and make throw and you say okay. That's pretty good. But it's not better than james. Do i think he can be a consistent. Starting winning quarterback. I do not think he's better. I think he's sudi perfectly for the role that it is. Okay yeah would. I want him on my football team. You better believe i would. I could do something. you can do. A lot of different things and they've done that with him over the course since he's been in new orleans yep he's got a nice little niche for himself. They're paying them. Good money skill. I mean they even before the there was a potential for him being a starter. They gave him a lot money. More gathers that jack put putting return game he. He'll quarterback for me authority to him a couple of times he'll throw here and they're out of the wildcat but they paid them a lot of money. Which shows you that they have a level of competency. But i don't believe he's better than james. And i believe has earned the job from what i've seen last night when jacksonville had their starters on the field that they're starting that they were going up against the up and james did outstanding it so i am fascinated to see if sean payton can swallow all his bride and say j. Misses the guy. I believe he will be. I also for james to say loop how to saturday. Jd martinez and the red sox take on the indians at four and then at nine mvp candidates collide as fernando techies junior. Powdery take on shohei otani and the angels all. Nfs one and the fox sports app the cowboys. Continue to remain confident. Dak prescott will be ready week one during a radio interview this morning. Jerry jones said dak sitting out now is about making sure he is good to go later in the season. Jerry also emphasized act would not have missed time. This injury happened in the regular season and added twenty. Wants to right now he can let it go so shannon. Do you buy what jerry selling. Jerry ceiling four dollar. Let let fake. About what jerry jones said if he wanted to let it go right now. It could what he said. Okay we're gonna they let it go. When was the last time you saw player. Basically mid six weeks just because now. I'm just going to wait for the regular season. Come on jerry. Jerry is trying to convince us now. I'm i've quadrille you. percent win. choice fed biz injuries. More serious than what the cowboys. Letting the more i hear jerry. The morale his stephen jones it validates everything detroit. See it because they're trying to convince you. There is no way if that could not pro. He won't be able to throw in the regular season. Bake this time out for reason jerry. Trying to buy have no compunction our hope not. It'll be fixed through reading for football's a hope. After six weeks gary he able go play well for you to say. Oh he can cut it loose right now if he wanted to fifty. Just want what you really really jerry. Skip you worried. I know you said in the beginning. You worry every not low back to genie's question i am buying what jerry selling because i don't have any other right i have to go. I got no other hope here. It's my seventy five million dollar quarterback he's back and my biggest fear going into this season was he had two surgeries not one but two airdrie's on his ankle. That was a career threatening compound fracture. Right so that's all. I focused on all my mental energy was geared toward two surgeries on his ankle. Can he come back from that. Can he get his mobility back. Can he get his pocket. Feet confidence back under fire and so obviously going into the preseason. Even mike mccarthy said we had a plan employees. He played ten to fifteen plays in the first game then he played in the saying that he might even play a half in the third game i have. He's played zero. I had to sit and watch the other night. Patrick mahomes played thirty three snaps in the first half thirty three. Snap tom. brady's even play. He's played gonna play play in the second one going to play in the next one right. What's the oldest cliche in the sport that you play to get better at football. You have to play football. Do it's one of those games where you just have to play. Yes because it's hard to simulated in practice especially at the quarterback position when the quarterback is completely protected in practice. He wears some sort of target jersey for israel limits. it can be read. It can be yellow. Normally it's red. Don't touch the quarterback rating practice. Because if you heard him we're done that's the whole philosophy so for the quarterback to actually get better to take quantum leaps. You have to put him under fire. You have to risk what. Patrick mahomes the other day. Thanks to andy reid. Because after the game andy said i've got a whole new offensive line. He's got to figure it out with those guys. Got to come to grips with how he does how he does it. It's a feeling it's it's a connection that that's hard to to achieve in practice because it's the real so to speak bullets aren't flying right. Yes and where. Patrick mahomes is going to be. They've never blocked for pets. A lot of these guys are never blocked. Patrick mahomes now. So they get the news center from the university of oklahoma. Dr love since freshman creed unfree. But he's yellen the game. Collect call it. Because creeds gotta look. He's got a call the protection and patrick okay so their their practice their rehearsing right call. Drake just calling. because he's he's a literally lockjaw like go ahead. Okay that's how you have to figure it out well. Deck and played with his offensive line for it seems like three years. Now the three stalwarts back. They all started the other night late just a little bit so i was happy with that. But i'm not happy that my quarterback what what's the new way in the nfl this this preseason. It's joint scrimmage it great because that's one way where you can have sorta real bullets flying but you still can protect the quarterback. He's still wearing a red target grit. And you cannot hate him. In the scrimmage. But it's live or because you you've got an opponent over there who's actually running different defenses that you have not seen right so you can get some fairly quality work done without putting your quarterback in too much of harm's way okay dak member we got to see an episode one of hard knocks their to their first padded practice. And that's when it it's revealed he's got something wrong with his arm right. How can you do that. I'm going to say it one more time. I've been covering this game for longer than you played in my whole career. I've never heard of a quarterback suffering some sort of pulled muscle supposed to be a lap muscle. It was originally reported as a tear muscle tear right. But i've never heard a quarterback not any quarterback in all the teams. I've been around having that injury anytime. Ever not let alone just in training camp correct so it became pretty clear to you. That dak was overthrowing with his upper body trying to protect his lower body. He didn't trust it right all throwing dry drills. He's trying to. You're just armed throwing what you're doing and because you're talking too much up stairs something somehow pulled it became a quote unquote baseball injury. And our man. Jay glazer reported that the cowboys medical people and trainers had to seek the input of the texas rangers. And the new york yankees baseball trainers. How do we deal with this injury wreck. Well if it were just a strain it would seem like it would come and go right right right and weeks piling up now with no activity except for what i call soft kasich right i. I watched the tapes. Of all i saw the highlights or lowlights of the fifty odd forty fifty one passes they said. In pre-game warmup the other night ahead of the arizona game and he cut loose quote unquote on one but it was just a lob down the field z right. Well is he just protecting or is it still a little tiny. What did what did they the to. The train came to mike. Mccarthy says when dad says that when he tried to cut loose hurts so calmed down. So what do you mean if he wanted to cut it lose if he tells the trainer when i throw it hard it hurts. That's telling me no you care. I don't care what jaycee we have. Something that quarterback and you're going to ask him to thought about thirty five forty times. And every time he throws he wins his no and this is what this is what he says he said Dak prescott will play a regular season game. It's just not worth it worth the gain out there in practice to not getting rid dak says jerry pitch cow very calm pools muscle pula soft tissue type injuries. Gary and you'll thirty plus you the morning. The team name baton. You've had a quarterback or player have this type of injury. Yes hamstrings yes. Aw have doing yup yes. Those type of soft tissue pools are very common name time that you've heard it a quarterback or a player having this type of soft tissue injury. I just be waiting. Jerry is very uncommon invest. Why you conferred because if it was a growing you like okay we've had growing is gonna take this time. Hamstring quad right. That's something that we've had since the beginning of football. Yeah but that type of injury. You didn't know anything about or how to treat it. That's why you went outside worried. Okay here's trying to convince you were to leave that aside you i will not admit with. This is not an opening game against the team. They played the other night. The houston. texans yeah this unfortunately is at top obey. This is a solo stage game on thursday night. September the ninth against to me the best team in football right the prohibitive favorite to repeat as super bowl champs against a defense that all came back intact. That is a year better a year. Wiser a year hotter. This was the hottest defense in the league. At the end of the year it took apart. Drew brees it. Took apart aaron rodgers in the fourth quarter. It took apart. Patrick mahomes the whole game. And now you're gonna throw dak into that fire down in that humidity down there on thursday night. It's it's the worst. It's wrong place wrong time for this quarterback to have to figure it back out. It's the very next statement. He has any type of restriction. He's having right now in his routine one hundred percent about late in the season so you admitting he'd had a restriction. I thought you said he could do. He wanted to do it right now. For whatever jerry either having restrictions or is it your everything is about the what what team doesn't say you know what we're doing right now is all about the regular season. We will all plans to be up to the regular season. But you say well. He's restricted right now. So it's all about no. He's restricted because he injured the restriction is about. I'll tom brady no no ph crowd air. Rogers patrick mahomes josh allen. None of those guys on a pitch count. You don't pay their preferred about a regular season also. Of course the only thing you ever hear in preseason is like a dead arm like a camp yes we throw so many can't pass wreck it just gets tired just gets a little sore overuse. Just give them a day off and you saw john elway just bounced back because he headache and and right right right okay. So that's not happening here. It's not tired arm. It's injured arm. That i've never heard of and yet they keep saying we have to save from himself because he's such a gamer such a baller such a competitor that he wants to throw but we won't let him will. They won't let him because they're looking at the amore is saying that this is not right. Thank you and dak himself. Said i need another. Mri cray said. Oh it looks great. I don't think it looked great. Thank you right. Break your. he's still. He's still feeling some discomfort in that arm when he lets it. Rip because like you said. Zeke running halfheartedly down the lobbing it to zipping it now so in the end he's he's going to go for from game five last year when he very unfortunately almost tragically got hurt. He's going to go all the way from that moment to september at tampa bay. I just can't. I can't do it worse. I can't put you up against it. I cannot give you a higher degree of difficulty than that in. What was my first concern that he needed to figure out what it feels like to plant that foot again to make sure the ankle is stable. If it will take some punish right that you can get hit from side to side you can get knocked around and you can get your confidence back run. That repaired ankle will that has not happened and that will only happen in serious number one in tampa right. I'm just trying to figure out how to two to three days turned into six weeks. Because that's what they're originally told us two or three days we're gonna let it a we're gonna shut them down for two to three days. He'll be back. It turns into six weeks. But everything's okay and now i await episode three tonight of hard knocks. Because it's the only way. I get my news right and yet. I'm pretty sure. Help me out here because you were once upon a time on this show. I'm pretty sure the cowboys have what's called editorial control have veto doesn't go in. So they're they're not going to divulge anything they don't want to but sort of. Unwittingly we got our news off episode one about the early injury right right. We got to see it happen in real time right. The trainers know tell mccarthy asked him why why you know. Build some on course right. And then we see mccarthy and his meeting and he's asking one of the assistance like what is. Gps now five seventy five if steps taken and bro Throws and practices up. Oh that's that's danger zone. That's too many but then we realized. Oh that's why he went over the edge and on. I think the cab was more concerned than they're letting on to be totally could. there's no way skip. You tried to let a guy that myth that amount of time and you said it was two to three days and now you say in the mix time we're gonna see. It isn't a regular season game. Y'all get on the road against that team. Yup all i know is that my man ezekiel elliott. Better be real good on that opening thursday night. What tampa bay was number one in what last year roy beefy it so so they go right to move beat obeyed. He lost weight. So now it'll be three five fifty Who was about three t and three pit three twenty. And there's this human missile named devon white. This comes flying into nevada. David i know. I i got it last. Jv shake bear to steal their. I just chalked up a big. So i'm a. I'm on to cincinnati onto the chargers in game two out here so-fi right those leave joy. Both you can get out of your quarterback finitely just off field party party maxine. Green is taking a page out of lebron's social media playbook the warriors forward reposted stats from another account about him to his story he also added this caption that reads quote lebron the wash king. But i'm somewhere on the all wash team to followed by the laughing crying emojis and a shrugging emoji emojis they say it all shannon. Did you like this. You're don't have a problem with this. But he's kind of late. He should do that after. When when clay steph was out with his numbers were down substantially people was making fun. Man drew my head another triple single when everybody was talking. It's naturally scale with klay. no steph obviously. His assist total is going to be down. Draymond has never been a score thinking my widsom whereas all of a sudden he's gonna averaged twenty points a game that's not what he is but if you look at his bounce back he shot forty five percent from the poor. That's up from thirty nine. The previous year with step in clay without every seven point seven assists seven point seven rebounds seven assists. I think several points seven rebounds. Nine something like that. I think they put this out there but he was better skipped last year he was gonna give me won a gold medal. He first team all defense. So i don't like. I said i get it. But he's kinda late because he's already had the bounceback season. I don't think anybody think dream house wash. I think they think with klay coming back and a lot of their reports that he's coming back around christmas. I think his numbers are going to get even better. We know what drew my represented. He's not a he's not a guy who's gonna give you twenty points. He doesn't even go into game. Looking scored twenty. He goes into the game. What can i do to help my team win. Or they need me to give out sixteen percents gotcha. They need me to grab twelve rebounds gadget. They need me to score twelve fourteen points. I play defense rudy. Gobert or whomever. I can do that too so he does. Some of everything. But i don't have a problem with this. You know a lot of people making fun of it was what i don't know what they expect a dream on the do with no klay in no staff. So who going to give this to so i don't have a problem with. He probably probably a year behind. She'll put up last year okay. I got several bigger picture. Take away you. Get to the guts of what i want to say. The first one is this. And i know lebron started this but i just can't quite get it through my head and get comfortable with the term washed because it was always washed up. Yeah where did the go. Yeah we yeah. Yeah short streamline. Get it done to wash because to me. If you're wash your clean cut run the terms to say okay man. I'm being dead serious okay. Now they dropped the series and they say okay we just cut it until some pieces. Lebron start that or was it more just on the internet wise king. Yeah no down to wash it. Did lebron start dropping the up. Yes where we just started. They just started dropping asking man. You got it all right. That's number one number two. This is amusing to me. So this is the same draymond who wants about our time during the nba. Finals called lebron. James the b word. He did it so audibly so loudly. That kiki vandeweghe who meted out punishment for the nba was sitting in the first or second row. He heard it. A lot of people heard it courtside and proceeded to get into an altercation with the ron as they went up court and then he kicked him in the. You know what's and here. We went and dream on got suspended for game five of the nba finals and it was groundbreaking because never before has a starter and a key player on. A team gotten suspended for a finals game. You have to go a long way to go completely over the edge of the pull that on and obviously had some recent history. Because he'd also kicked. Was stephen adams in the mid sector. Okay so we have gone from that to all of a sudden before i knew what had happened. Draymond somehow then re-ingratiate himself lebron to the point. He's his business partner of his closest friend. Did we get over that. Because even you've admitted called that word by a competitor that bridge would be. That's that's over an out for the rest of your life. You cannot come back from abroad. Skipper no brian. Different problems like you know what in the heat of the moment. You said some things we could. Let's go make this. Let's get the money together. Really ron brown. Good good good. Good people keep your friends close and your enemies closer. So his enemy became his business partner beyond to be made that we've had to be built at each this breed. I don't think you could have swallowed that much price dollars. You'd say okay. I'll i'll do it the just this once. How many question. Also draymond green during a basketball game sitting on the bench with a teammate. At clippers that team being one kevin durant the rest player on the player got into it with him and call him to be worse. And i believe it hastened the exit one kevin durant from golden state to brooklyn. And the next thing. I know he's done it again. Draymond has re-ingratiate himself into the very good graces of kevin durant. Because they're bff's now. They were olympic teammates and inseparable. It was almost like kyri and kevin became dream on kevin at the olympics when obviously at the end of the game when they're walking up the tunnel and kevin is posted. I think it was lie. Lie right i g live in the background. Chiming in right right okay. So how did that happen. I got this magical quality you could in the heat of battle you can call somebody that word and that is. That's one of those worst where you you can't come back from you. Listen to that entire interview k. D's saying the only reason that he came back was to three peat if there was no possibility he was gone a year before he said only because it has been so special. Because it's been done. So so what who who did that. The lakers dated la- lakers. Did it did it. And then you gotta go back to the celtics sixties. So because it had been done so infrequently he's said. I wanted to be a part of that. But had that not been on the table skip. I don't believe kevin durant come back when the third year so like. I said i believe it was ninety nine percent shares. He was already gone. Drake monster i. I commend those guys. It takes a lot skip to forgive someone when you know. They've said something or done something wrong. And dream on made it clear in the recent interview. He did on his new show with kevin. He made it clear that he he was de badgered. By the the backyard's kerr than the night off and then the next morning to apologize. He said i ain't apologize. He's a johnny me. What i need to say kay and fix this but in a situation he made it pretty clear that he did not know kevin an apology. That sounds like i said look. They'd happens lebron forgave him. Katie forgave him not making his money together. Not a empire to go so now. I'm going to defend lebron on this point so all of a sudden draymond is sort of putting himself in the same sense with lebron like i also belong on the all wash team. No no not belong on the same page on the same sick you just. Don't you're not in his company. He is just as obviously i believe. Lebron doesn't belong in the same sentence. Michael jordan neither does draymond with lebron in this case. He's trying to associate with lebron james. Just the fame amount of gap between dray modern. Lebron jordan. you you you rover. This gives the best player. This i did and it worked again. He's he's complimenting lebron at the highest level goat at work that's baloney code at work. Go and then he's saying and i'm also on the all wash gene. Okay well are you. We get it that you just keep doing what you've always done. You assist you. Defend right rebound. We'll get so you put those numbers up make all d- thrived teams and yet you're scoring in your shooting in your shotmaking gets worse by the year. Okay i got that. But that's what people say you're washed about. He just gets listen. He's a he's a blue correal like during the olympics. Every time he got the ball his hands. I'm like just pass it. Just get rid of this. Gop sometimes they would just dairyman. He was his like he's always like let's give you realize head. They won that championship. He probably will be remembered that game seven thirty eight thirty nine yet. A big game. He may like figure febreeze. Okay but the reason he's washed from that moment on. I can show you gain if he works at it anymore. It was just that one year that he had a great year. Three ball. okay. That was it thirty nine percent that year all the other tattoos made like thirty twenty seven thirty one. Okay with the exception of that one here and now he's an air ball waiting to happen three and sometimes he gets dared to drive it in. It's this awkward to sort of up. And he'll miss dunks illness layups. He'll airball layups like it's hard to walk. I'll take over. Ben simmons to shoot it. He ain't afraid to shoot it you think. Ben simmons over dream on any day. No no no no. That was the best defender. Ben simmons or stop dri at six ten. Remind six six six and thrown. He'll bat strong go bare. He'll play k. D. lebron he'll kuwa- he'll got every provision naturally. Born strong agree. He guards joke doesn't matter okay. I got that. I'll take six ten and long and straw with the at least my guy i'm going to be able to keep them on the floor game Your guy late in the ball game. If it's close going to have to go to that's a whole nother story. Jerry lethal free throws better the better than the other well at the moment he is. But i've seen like just last year. In february i watched a game at utah. And ben simmons made twelve out of thirty in scored forty two points. Yeah lafley thailand. How you thought how would you do it. They were doing they. Were doing boy. Who's made the all star team the last three years in a row. One been simmons. My guys one differs a player of the year. Draymond jauregui now maga. Okay all right. Well he has. My guy is made the last two all defensive teams and he's much younger than your guy's already been there done that my guy the year did your guy win rookie year. You deal with twenty seven rookie year. He should have been the nba. Need to pass a rule. Way you drafted. That is your rookie. Klay as you do get an entire season or an entire two three incumbent. Play and talk about you are rookie. Your rookie class was the year that you drafted you win the trophy bank here but not subsequent years whatever. He won rookie of the year. And he's a better all around player than dream. I'm takin drake yup. All wash. i'll maybe there's all washed as a motivation for you gotta be hollow you. Do all your opinions about the same. You know rich paul. Yes i do know revolt like rich. Paul investing lebron's goggle wonders. Y'all maverick in randy. Yeah they're stars. The fifth night on f s one nameless alter game takes center stage as major league soccer's biggest stars battle against the best of league. Amex the actually picks up tomorrow at nine eastern. Nfs one and the fox sports bengals rookie wide receiver. Chhmar chase appears to be having a difficult time adjusting to the nfl. Joe boroughs former college. Running-mate dropped three passes on friday against the washington football team including one that was picked off during practice on sunday. The rookie also dropped another. Two passes so shannon. How worried should the bengals be here. I wouldn't be concerned about drops because a lot of that is mental. Give you start dropping the ball and then you try to body catch and you start lucky on my hand correction. I do my hands like this. She duma hand like this. You know you always try to keep having your thumbs down when you catch the football and so a lot of that is mental. What i'm concerned about is they're talking about having trouble getting off press coverage you received. You can't be press coverage you do two things you coach or you sail cars that though the washer skip because mike shanahan us coming in we've played in the afc with we had to raise weird. Kansas city there was no secret what they wanna do. They're playing man coverage lewis and kanter also gonna be right there and then they got james hasty dale carter. They will be right. there in. The raiders had terry mcdaniel. Didn't abbot losing their washington. Right there it might say. Look you got two choices. Beat man coverage or you coach. You got no occupy. I got gotten availability on my coaching staff. Hr coach fairly cars like non book so job. So that's concerning to me. Because i believe the drops are mental. You start you start second guessing yourself body catching to hang catch catcher. Do i let kick the ball like this all there. But he's gotta get press coverage learnings give is that nfl dvd's they played through. There ain't no situation world. Oh he got to be in college. You get beat the gas they just give up. That's not how it works in the nfl. They play through until you're on the ground they're going to be digging and pulling at the ball so i disagree with your conclusion for the very reason that you i brought up if on the bengals. I'm scared to death about this because it is mental. He's got the demons lurking. He's starting to second guess he's starting to think hard about. How did i do this. He sat out last year. Opted out and it's been a long time since he took over a football game the way he did like the national championship game when he was just unguardable and yet when i watched that video those drops i was watching the game as it transpires as i watched the video it looks worse and worse to me. Because he's second guessing to the point where on on the one little slant egypt gives up on the ball because he didn't want to get hit your like you said versus alabama heart of that. I was just going to give them a little town. Seems kind of looking at the hands like what just happened because in his life i will bet you. He's never thought twice about how he caught the foot. No because you don't need to think about it. It should come. Naturally she do this or should. I do natural. He's a hands catcher off because he's a great catcher the football we saw it at lsu. But you can't let it get in on. You can't let it catch you up against your body because then it's going to hit up against your pads and it's going to pop and the thing is once you draw one or two in a game skill. Yeah they've been really gets in your head. Did it really starts to bother you. And then gather the yelling and talking to you better. Drop it scared. That's why you drop your schedule. You wanna get here. And then they throw them another cost little. Throw me a stop route. Throwing me out well have to go in there. Just give me something either. Maybe just give me a smoke where you just pop up. Give me the ball. Just let me feel it but give the concerning part is beating mad coverage because once guys find that you can't beat mad covered what you think they to do. I fit right in front of. I'm not going anywhere. Yep i've just seen it happen so much in baseball world. Sudden steve sax can't rick can't throw either anywhere but to the backstop. St blasts had that diseases a pitcher for the pittsburgh pirates. And you go to golf and david duval and ian baker finch. They just lost their drivers. Just couldn't find the fairway anymore and it's all it's all in your head but i really thought they should've took canadian oil. The big the big left tackle. Out of oregon. Because what. Joe borough miss games last year because they couldn't protect it. I agree that he got weapons. This was the fifth overall. Pick as he better be able to beat the demons in his head right now because they can come back and bite you an aunt you during the regular season games with time. I mean some guys takes a little longer in some guys you know skip just hit the ground running look at guideline hulu receivers justin jefferson lab and these guys have julio in. Aj green growl running skit when you're the picking draft now that's a whole lot of that. Get drafted high. Your differs maker. You get drafted. How you're supposed to be a hall of fame that's true i. It's probably a little bit of while the cowboys haven't won eight. Preseason game yet we have been able to get you know some behind the scenes looks thanks to hard knocks that episode. Three of the five part series airs tonight so shannon. What do you wanna see tonight. I know you already told me. Now you see today. Don't that's eight twenty four twenty. So that's before. Dag hurt his shoulder. So i don't look at that. He thought good a week before you know. Just some dag information skill. Maybe they give something lightness just a little bit. Because i don't believe anything. That jerry in stephen joel sega. This time that they're not worried there. Unconcerned about what could possibly happen. And it's going to be hundred percent. Come september night yeah. I don't believe it. I agree. I would like a little less of silly goofy zeke and a little more of deep dak because he is opening up for this. Hbo camera crew more than he ever had. And he's showing me more how his mind works. I i have learned more about dak over the two episodes than i knew. I five league. So i'm loving seeing inside. Dak you probably going to get some of this. Cove it because remember skip dan. Quinn missed the other night because of quo. Kobe situation now joe right. Cd had heard that went virtual dilute last couple of days. I think tuesday today. They're going to start back so obviously that will be in there. But i think the day in queens. I do believe that's going up. That'd be a part of it and i helped mike. Mccarthy has a better night tonight. Commanding powerful night. He's in charge. You get one more day. One more week of mike mccarthy draft could he redraft why skip channing. We'll be back same time tomorrow morning. The khurda is on now is calling enjoy.

The system's gonna automatically notice and say okay. I've seen that most people that are posting scores today. Your scores are higher than were. They knew what they normally post in the scores over on the golf course higher than what the course rating with typically dictate and it will go in and kick out an algorithm and and adjust back to what would be more normal conditions. And so you'll have to feel like man. It was rainy. It was wendy. The score is gonna kill my handicapped. I don't i don't wanna use it. Go ahead and post it. System will take care before you. We want people out there enjoying golf and posting scores and and we'll let the system do the calculations in the background so talking about the handicap system and how what changes we're going to see is amador's and how it affects us and our play. Can you address this this idea of playing handicap. And what does that mean what. How is that different than a course handicap. I it will largely be the same but we did introduced a new term handicap which indicate if you were to play a different format outside of individual strokeplay there often times is an allocation that you're giving so if you're playing in a four-ball that for example you're not getting one hundred percent of your anti gap You're going to get. What did i think ninety percent. And so you have a course handicap which would be one hundred percent but the plane handicap. Just the adjustment. That say no brian. You're not getting one hundred today. You're gonna play ninety percent of your handicap. That is you're playing after today. So it's really an attempt to introduce this new concept so that you can understand the difference of okay. If i were getting a hundred percent of my strokes. I'd be an act but today because i'm getting only a certain percentage i'm at why and the why it mike claiming that was thomas. Pagel united states golf association player. Handicapped is a percentage right. So if you're planning bob this happens a lot. Were only going allow ninety percent handicap or seventy percent of your handicapped or something like that and that's to try. Maybe it's a team competition. Say want to try to minimize the effect of the handicapped. Still give you the advantage need to be able to compete fairly but not overdo it in a situation where you might rely on somebody else or another type of format of play. That would help you play better. Golf right yeah. You know handicapped. The thing you have to remember about handicap handicap is is to create equity in the field of competition supposed to level out the field so everybody plays from the same point. And so exactly what you said. I think you know we've all seen events that we played in where it's been extremely difficult because you're seeing. That guys aren't playing to their handicap where they're playing lower than their handicap. That kind of thing. But it's all about equity and fairness in the game being being able to create and have fun in the game that we love so much. It's it comes down to integrity and it starts with each individual golfer in that regard. We're gonna talk more about that and continue with thomas. Pagel next more handicapped discussion.

And a different hand. Matori doesn't just add speed instability custom fit from tory act. Today you're listening to real golf radio now back to brian. And bob i welcome back to the show this segment brought to you by odyssey the number one putter in golf checkout odyssey golf dot com all right continuing now with thomas pagel handicap discussion again. Beginning of the year. It's important understand how handicaps work and your role in that process and thomas pagel with the united states scoff sociation continues to break it down for us. I mean the principal or handicap that is to be able to promote fun and fairplay or that equitable plays. You described it in order for that to happen you first of all you need to rely on the integrity of the players and coaching scores. And i think that it's golfers inherently that. That's that's what we do but if somebody were go out and play into tournament and they were to shoot and exceptional score the system recognizes that and if it's more than a certain number of stroke better than there any cap index they just going to automatically kicking and adjust any cap index again so that it's more reflective of their potential as a golfer and just shown through this exceptional scored at their potential is a golfer is perhaps better than what they're getting index suggests and so it will it will kick in and then on top of that this. This also includes some new safeguards what we have what we call caps right so we have a spot cap in a hard cap. And essentially these cap without going into calculations limit the amount that a player's handicap. Kengo up from a revision a revision but also over a twelve month period. So if you were to start The year as a five in cap. This is going to make sure that you're not going to go up and and six months from now be a fifteen it's gonna kick in and can say whoa o'brien you're potentially golfers actually this at least what you've shown in the last month and while you're scores might be trending a little bit higher. We're actually not going to raise your andy capp index up at that rate because we want it to reflect the potential that you've shown in the pack so again there's some safeguards and measures that we we put america at the end of the day is about Promoting that spun in fairplay so question for then in in a tournament setting Is that is that going to be a a sliding scale handicapped since it's be being Renewed daily in that kind of thing can can you technically go into into You know like the art city amateur here in utah. Can you go play that event. And like on the first round you shoot your handicap at the second round you eight. Your handicapped stays the same or you should score you. Shoot a bad score does does that go into effect in play or just daily. Play joe's pink for tournament play. You're not gonna have to worry about a sliding scale. Well we recommended for administrators is no pick your cutoff date because and having sat behind the duck and run a number of of club in and say level competitions. I sympathize with this you. You can't you can only imagine. I just accepted one hundred injuries. I have to cut this off at some point. And so what we're recommending is go ahead and probably pick the first or the fifteen and say. I'm gonna use handicapped as of the first of this month even if the tournaments not played. So let's say the checks and what that dodgers that allows the administrator to go ahead get determined set up in the computer. The scorecards credit get the scoreboard. And then just go ahead and stick with those handicaps that were generated on the first even though it scores or posting. Andy capture up. It's just. I mean it. It's a practical approach. More than anything. All right thomas oh in the beginning you told us that this one of the reasons for having this was to help everyone around the world if you're playing different courses does this mean that if you play the same golf course you know your home club you play it. Every day. we talk about this. Alpine country club hut. That the handy are up to capstone travel very well you if you play alpine every day you can use your your score might be handicapped. Might be quite a bit lower than if you just showed up at torrey pines south for instance and as a one handicap. You're probably not shooting seventy three seventy four based on the difficulty that golf course or how. How does that travel. Does it help with handicaps traveling. Does it take that into consideration the the biggest thing and this is as well as is you know you're not going to shoot two your handicap or clear handicap. Excuse me every round. You're quite right because your handicap is your potential. And so you're going to have those around you're gonna or or even those sort of mild average round series they. Okay well my handicap adding. You shouldn't eaten today. But i shot an eighty three. Well that's that's still normal within your sort of playing records and to be Expected now what what kicks in no is when we're talking about target score what you should be shooting you have to look at your course rating in your slope rating so the adjustment. So it's not far but it's actually what are would be or what your any cap would be using both that course rating and slope rating. And so if i have a handicap of a five and i'm playing golf course has a par of seventy two. My targets were for that day is going to be a a seventy seven. And so that's why if i were to play to my handicap in play. Well that's what i should expect. Yeah no that's good. Thomas pagel joining us here. United states golf association on real golf radio right. So if we if i'm writing down things we got daily posting and revising we've got playing handicap. We got caps on the highs and lows swings throughout the year to try to limit the the the flocks. I guess we have weather. Course conditions factor. Which maybe maybe you could touch on that a little bit more. I think that's interesting. That's just built into the algorithm. So if everybody on that. Golf course is shooting higher than normal scores. That day. it's going to ask some calculation in just automatically right. That's exactly right. That's where again it's it's just going to do the work in the background. But if it recognizes that scores abnormally high abnormally low. It will kick in and adjust because again. It's just wants to be reflective of your potential and try him now. Wash out some of that noise. That might come with weather so of the things that i mentioned what. What am i missing. What are what are some of the other things that are important aspects to the changes. Look i mean. I think one important aspect is going to relate to the course handicap. How course cap is calculated whereas now it will take into effect The difference between course rating and par- Under the old system there was a section called section. Three ash five would some tournament. Operators organizers were familiar with and without if you're playing the white t.'s. And i'm playing the blue cheese. They would actually be some adjustment between our handicaps because we're not playing the same so if you're playing a blue you might get more strokes Than than your course handicap would normally dictate to adjust against the claims from the white. The new system actually takes into into account or straining minus. So it's going to calculate my course handicap or calculating and index. And then what it'll do is it'll say okay. The course handicappers. Seventy four. But at the par seventy two golf course actually gonna add two strokes to that to that number that we just calculated and show it has been built in judgment already done. So we don't have to worry about anymore brian. You're playing from the blues. I'm playing from the white. Let's figure out the secondary calculation because the systems already done it for us and again. It sounds complicated. There are a lot of numbers involved in king complicated calculation but the the good news is technology to help us so you look at like for example. The new janette apt which was just launched. This week you put in your you put in the you wanna play in. It's going to do all the accusations or you just signed up for that. By the way. I updated my new japanese. It looks nice so well done. Yep room per room for growth and it. It'll it'll continue to improve out there. Were excited for it. So how's this been received across the world not only here in the states. But how's it being received as the new handicap system for the world. Basically you know what i think. We've gone such a Well we've gone through a lot with our partners of the six existing authorities over the last seven years. So i think the world has been prepared for this the golfing world. And we've seen it actually been very well received We're talking to our friends from south africa The other day and they were ready to start sending his testimony after testimony talking about how much they love it so they didn't wait either come january first. They started playing immediately under their nothing but great things from from their members that were good things here in the us. Worst people showing up there saying well wait a minute. Why my catt core sandy cap a little bit different than it's been but they go out and they why and they sort of begin to understand how the system works in again. What we're hearing is very very favorable so but look i'm also going to be open and just like with the new rules last year There's probably a few things we're going to learn over. The course of the next you know five or six months is or putin the air and people start using the system and if there adjustments to this just going to make where we're certainly open and going to do that do so quickly But were excited. As i said at the outset you're taking six different handicapper stories different Golfing cultures from out the world and bringing it into one system. And that's the big thing for our global game. I love it. I appreciate you taking some time to explain it. I did want to ask you a year later. How how have you felt about. Those rules changes. It certainly was was changing the look of everything right. The way people dropped the golf ball the way the way they handled hazards or we don't call them anymore. you know. there's a lot of things that change putting with the flagstick in a year later out. You kind of sit back and look at the changes to those rules. You know what Yeah it was I'm still thrilled with where we've ended up There were certainly some point. It's challenging points early in the year. But i just you know what we recognize that that would happen and we we committed to the goffman neither be responsive and act quickly. And i think that's exactly what we did. And look you reflect on last year. And i'm gonna i'm gonna knock on wood as were at. The counters turned over and we head into new year but all four majors controversy freeh You know you you get into march. There are very few. Rules controversies From that point forward and the rules don't want the rules via headline. We never wanted the rules to be a headline and so the fact that people aren't talking about them as much the fact. You don't have the controversies. I take that away in a positive. And i have to laugh you know. I was fortunate enough to go to the president's cup walking around refereeing a couple of groups. I'm watching players. Dropped from their knees and actually took me a day or two to rate the paper. I said wait a minute. This last year they'd be dropping from the shoulder so it's become normal now and again. We continue to hear. Cheer good things. And and i'm just thrilled with louis ended up. Well thomas we appreciate any. No i have the obligatory question that i that i have to ask and that is are we. Are we ready to address the divet in the fairway rule her every time everytime i can move up the up the priority with partying shot for your listeners. Outdoor game challenging games. We love to take the good with the bad. Never think about the good good lie in the rough. Sometimes you just have to accept what what you get in and play hearts. I have to ask. i know i know. I know it's not going anywhere. But i'm gonna keep asking almost it's just what am i to do. So you're gonna wear me down one of these days. I all right there. You go thomas pagel. I mean come on bob. I'm gonna continue to ask the dividend. The fairway handicaps aside the dividend. The fairway is inequitable. That's what we talked about with any gaps. It's about fair and equitable. Actually he said fun. Inequitable which. I appreciated that distinction. It's not fun inequitable when you land in someone else's it i don't know how many times we'll get a break this down. It's called reverend green and it's just part of the game and you just tell you it out like you said you know. Sometimes you get a really good lion the rough and you're really happy other times you hit it in there and nestles all the way down to the bottom and you're thinking oh man i can only hit this about twenty or thirty yards so i totally understand what he's saying it's it's it is what it is and that he i don't think so i think so because look if you hit it in the rough weather you get a good liar a bad life you hit where you're not supposed to hit it so you know what you ought be. It ought to be rub of the green at that point time. But when you get it now now we're supposed to control the weather too because you know somebody might you know case in point you. Know zander shaw. On the sixteenth hole at augusta he gets a wind. Gust is balls in the air. He gets wind gust as he automatically get to retake the wind bothered. It has not valid conversation. It is not the same thing. Listen here's how it's different k. Here's how it's different. When when you hit it into a spot in the fairway the guy previously had a perfect life and then he goes in he creates a manmade obstruction. And now you happen. Your ball ends up in it. So you get penalized differently than that guy did based on the same spa on the golf. We all play from the same playing ground in the game of golf. Well they've normally and that's fine but when you happen to play in someone else's playing ground where there's a big hole then that is not equitable. I'm just saying it's sorry was very unfortunate. it is indeed it's unfortunate and an equitable and it's no fun. I'm gonna. I'm gonna keep tooting that hornbach real players understand how to play this. Okay go to the real player card on me all right. Listen that's going to wrap up the first hour so we hit handicaps coming up next hour. I'm really excited. We're gonna talk about buddy trips. Because i think there's there's two things about this time of year. You gotta gear up for your handicapped season. You gotta make sure that you're being honest and have integrity around that but you're also looking to get out of dodge. Go play some golf with your buddies. We're gonna do all that as we continue right here on offer. Hey when hunting birdies on the golf course you may just want to hunt or shoot. Get some guns and ammo. Yes what you want.

Our club had an experience where a player shot sixty seven. He was four handicap and the comment was made. Hey don't post that until after the member guest next month at at another club that he was going to play out and i it was brought to the committee i was made aware of it and it was one of those things where i said you know what in order to protect. Not only our club and the field and our men's opener was coming up that weekend but also all those that are traveling to that other club to play. That's something that has to be posted. And so the rules of golf don't really allow for a handicap or a golf charity to not do something about it so i worked with her head pro. We say confronted but had a discussion with the individual any went ahead and posted it and it dropped him from affordable three. But those are the little things when you're in handicap management.

Basically on one leg and all the drama that ensued tori is awesome. And we're actually going to be taking another trip back to san diego coming up in just a couple of weeks to play with a good friend of ours and just experienced torrey pines south because it's one of those great golf courses and the great thing about it is to bob is your dad has his likeness and name inscribed along the putting green there on that wall championships. Yeah it's a pretty cool place and you know it's a place that i i played a lot of golf at when i was growing up especially the north course that was a that was a former golf course of the of the bunch. When when i was growing up south was a little bit. Difficult still is but yeah but had opportunity to not only play that growing up but also catty from my dad. They're also walk in practice rounds with my dad and and then also caddy for keith. Clearwater there so it's it's been really fun to be able to live in the san diego area. There's a lot of great golf down there. But that is the jewel so to speak. Are those courses there at torrey pines house where you actually picked the bag up from keith. Right i mean that was when it all went down with this cat. And he says bobby walks says he's walking out to the man he points mount he points to his right hand and you come running out of the bullpen ready to go pick up the bag and the rest is history Yeah he was staying with us. That week there in san diego and and it was when i was living down there and keith was living up here and got to the third round and his katie. Didn't show up and he goes bob. You're caddying today. And then he said coming to. La arrested him further year. That's a great story. Hey coming up this hour really excited about it. We talked handicaps last hour. Which again is important. I'm getting the caddy's take on that coming up as well but you gotta maintain an honest handicap if this whole system's going to work so again as club. Events are starting up competitions.

Come on come on you know about ten. We'll come on. Who who i don't need to telecast that's right that's right so matt this is such an interesting time. Obviously for everybody. And the one thing that i think is a bit of a casualty was certainly the buddy trip of twenty twenty so whether it be in may and cove starting to release its grip billy. So tightly on much of the country travels becoming more accessible. And i think everyone's sorta looking. Hey it's time to get out like i've enjoyed being home. I've enjoyed a lot of things. We had to reset our minds. But it's time to get out a little bit and so for for our listeners and others who are planning buddy trips or thinking about getting out what we wanted to start with you tell us about. What are the key ingredients to a great buddy trip and some of the just gray destinations and opportunities for buddy trips that you've experienced guy you know. It is a buyer's market out there right now development of golf and specifically the enhancement but some of these destinations the last ten or fifteen years as what you know. What mike kaiser did you know. Twenty years ago. Dan and doing choice was it. That was the rock in the pond and the ripple effect of all. This been happening since mike. You started building out band and booms is it. It put all the other destinations. If you're not building places that people can come and hunker down and be safe and get away and get together and have that kind of experience with great service. Great serving with an emphasis on amateur golfer. With a hyper focus on the people who pay to play the game that that impacted golf in america and will continue to do so for forever Can look at. Just look at the reaction by pioneers of what happened to ten now. Finers has a short built the cradle. They reinvented their whole front porch. They added a brewery. They did that you know. They're the back porch overlooking binder number. Two I think you know the putting course now at both if you don't have a putting course or short course or a fun factory of some sort Your vote you're gonna pass up. He'll ppc saw faces that are sort of built around the hard Aspect of the game. You know you you you you better you better you better make the correction or you're gonna lose out and To to the point of like you've got so many cool places That are that have that have popped up habit valley For students just got bought and has and just added short core. Arcadia bluffs added another cool course. Have you got places like turning stone. Big cedar lodge. I mean it's it's unbelievable. So that's the top level. We can get into the weeds a little bit. But i'm just telling you that this is the time. Look you're at your point people's missed you know. They're buddies trips and twenty twenty and and the second half of twenty twenty one. You know you think you think. Golf is big and twenty twenty league. Tv with second half of twenty twenty two people being pent up and ready to dip back out. Get back with their buddies it. It's just trying to go places and you're not you're not gonna be able to find fun. Yeah are there deals to be had right now or is everything because of the situation and people starting to book up our things becoming a much more difficult and more costly to be able to have a trip like that. I'm not so sure that it's more cost is definitely booked up if you call back and if you call the hours. I do my angle buddies trip to dan and dunes in october. Twenty eight guys and we were able to get it in in twenty twenty somehow someway and it was it easy. Some guys dropped out last minute. Patients get guys that we got it right and we were and we masked out and they had all that you know that the eight outside his you know it was what it was like but i tried to book in september of twenty twenty for our trip in october twenty twenty one and could barely make it happen because everybody already jammed in the second. Half of twenty twenty one knowing that the first half of twenty twenty one was going to be you know was going to be what it is and where where it wasn't going to be up and running and now we open up. It's just you're gonna get creative. They're going to have to be flexible. And you're going to have to figure out ways. So i just in your group in you know you might have shrink group. You might have to go someplace that you you know. Play turning them in upstate. New york is a fantastic opportunity. for a buddy strip with which is very cost effective multiple golf courses. Great hang great. You know good food and you know off the beaten path. So that's your larger number just added tiger woods core trying to the core crunch house depaz. You'll has the player. Short-course has been nickel short course kinds of cool branson missouri. You're gonna have to think of places like that and you think well. Maybe i will consider big. Ginger can happy. You ain't got to make more phone calls match joining us here on real golf radio. I love it. You mentioned some good things. Stream song comes to mind in florida You mentioned arcadia bluffs. Or actually bob and have an opportunity to go out and michigan in in july. We're headed out there. Actually and we're going to check out. The new american dunes were really excited about. And then we're gonna make our way up to arcadia bluffs so that's a new experience for us. We have not done a lot of michigan golfer. So we're excited to check that out. But as you mentioned some of those that come to mind they really have afforded an opportunity for the hang if you will and a spot to be and to have some fun and have an experience not just play golf. I think that that word experience that you know at the end of the day. I've always said but the problem with coffee is not charging five hundred and fifty dollars per greenfield. Like you do you know. Pebble beach The problem with gov is if he charged five hundred fifty dollars per greenspan and deliver a fifty dollar experience. If you charge fifty and you deliver a five thousand dollar experience everybody's walking away with a smile on their face and a couple of pitchers in their phone and memories that they can have right. But i said this drought blue. You can count. I've been in social media since the beginning right. You can count on one hand People who are look at me route blue. I paid five fifty. I lost twelve balls a shot one hundred airplanes flying over my head. I mean or you're to pay five fifty couple and walk where the pros play whether you are soaked his hat and you know. Have that kind of spiritual connection to the land and ocean and the tree and walk away going. Oh my god and everybody was looking at me. I've been pebble beach. Is that whatever wherever you pay whatever. The number is from thirty five dollars to five hundred thirty five dollars that placed better deliberate experience for your never come down. What is it makes you want to say. I can't wait to come back. And that's that's what my kinds has been able to do is deliver an experience for people. Say i don't care what i pay.

And you got to check out. His new firepit collective that he is working on. It is absolutely awesome all right so let's continue. Now we're talking about buddy trips. And what makes a great buddy trip and then we were leading into golf. Course design bob and you know you were just pointing out the one in pebble beach. Yeah they came about you know they. They used to have the peter. Hey and you know rock up twenty five bucks to your place. It's a cool concept and not much of an actual gulf just kind of green and then they blow it up and they use it as i would tend to four you know big events like us open and then maybe they thought oh in rebuild it again put up the greens and there'll be peter. Hey and i think again because of what's happening at van den and pinehurst and all the you know big cedar lodge in san valley cabinet have a links. I mean that sports pebbles hands to say you know maybe we ought to do something a little different and that's when tiger happened to combine the. Hey what he has to do with that land and they said well we're actually Considering doing something more to you know pressure on after they had gotten rid of it in years and they say okay. What are you going to do with it. And so all. I travel and they did the right thing. They did something formidable now. It's actually something where if you go to pebble you're gonna say i'm going to short-course It's actually something that i'm going to never really started out to but now it's gonna be something that's good news of a great piece of small land to create a fun factory for you know around the game and that that's why we're all benefits. Why the buyer's market for us. We win. I love it match. Nell joining us here. On real golf radio. So let's talk about not so much the destination but what goes into it so if you happen to be the one. That's planning your tasked with planning the buddy trip. What are the key ingredients. What are the things that you need to keep in mind to ensure that everybody is going to have a good experience like is there a magic number. As far as the number of people that are involved or the handicap ranges you know the accommodations kind of talk through how you go ahead and to plan those aspects of it the logistics or alkap planners are. They're the key right there. The bell cow. They're the ones who bring the group and and and and destinations are getting very good at making sure that life is easy on the planet. So okay i think you've got four or eight people. It's easier to move around like to michigan trip though from forest in to arcane gloves. Hang out in a couple of couple of by at each place and you're gonna you're gonna get great value and great golf and they said you know great experiences. But i wouldn't do that with twenty eight right twenty guys. I've gotta find her. I wanna see island. I abandoned do on turning stone on a big cedar lodge a place. Where you can park the car shuttled around make. You're going to live after a long day. You know on the golf for having beverages. You want the hang. Fire pits want cottages. You know i'm looking to that of walk. The short courses. I want things that you know. Look at our ages. Thirty six a day for four days doesn't work. It doesn't work anymore. I want thirty six one day on eighteen the next day and then i want the putting course in the afternoon or the short course me after i wanted to make you feel like we have to have some fun right so it's not just all like oh my god. Another thirty six. James the alpha plan has got be hypersensitive. The group said the demographic that they have a play down play down to the lowest common denominator or the highest A handicap because if that person's not having fun than going out months so nature you have a place that has the kind of golf where even the highest handicapper can go now or have a format like a scramble to man scramble or a beth ball alternate-shot or something that allows it to be something other than like john score. I wanted to let. Let's make you make that a triple. Bogey no no one's gonna happen that way. So you gotta be hypersensitive to the venue golf courses themselves and to the highest andy capturing your group and to the guy who needs the lowest budget and you know you don't want people out of your trip so be hypersensitive to that to to what people can afford and what people can do to if in order to have fun and and the alpha planners are already doing they figured out that group. They understand who they are where they need to be and do they wanna move around or do they want to hunker down you move around keep the good small the hunker down you can get bigger especially to go into place near and year out. I lo- it so price really isn't a problem whether it's in the united states or whether it's outside the united states you've been all around the world you've seen great venues great places what what is what is the place the place that you wanna be or you wanna go to again. You know if if it if you're older in life and and you're you know affluent graves of four people and if you haven't done pebble beach the garment you gotta do it. You got if you haven't been to scotland and the st andrews trip you gotta go you gotta do. You haven't been to the south west coast of ireland and experience. You know a hedge and water bill and you know gone down and you know old head i. It's like you know go golfing kind of the most dangerous thing you'll ever see. It's a cool experience. You gotta check it off the list right Valley bugging in bag and all that. That's a great experience Bandon dunes for that now. That look you've indians as always cut a half the price of pebble beach but if you're in a pure golf and not necessarily in the night live if you're you know that that's the place but if you want the nightlife y'all of course activities mcrae medicine stuff. That's why people congregated places like myrtle beach is always gonna be there for the for the you know for the lower budget you know less you know sort of left hyperfocused golfer who you know might wanna play eighteen morning taking up and then they're not. I mean they're out on the town. They're doing whatever it is. They're doing that kind of stuff. So it just depends on your group and what. Your priorities are coyotes and golf goto place. It delivers pure golf like abandoned. If you want. That bucket missed experience. Well then you've got to get pebble. Beach is the cabinet from ireland. You know i did that trip to melbourne australia. I mean if if money's not money's not an issue and you got about eight to ten days and you go to melbourne australia and popped over to ties maintenance barn movable data that that's as good as it gets But the good news here in america you do have. You'd have plenty of options. And and and the places that i've mentioned like turning stone like big cedar lodge lights Central oregon kind of live in the shadow of van. But my goodness sudden river. And some of the stuff that's happening in central organs is a tremendous trip Perm horn and throw and all that stuff. I mean a special place too. I love it. And bob was asking the question i wanted to ask. And then i'll follow it up with the coolest place that you've gone. That might be the least pretentious. I didn't expect that it wasn't expensive. It's not in the prestigious category. But you know almost like what you're describing go he'll really but but what. What is that sort of that will surprise. You ought to just do it. And it won't cost you anything. Basically bad you know. I always thought about or i've talked about big alive so much that it's almost it's almost now and now now that they're much fanfare without added and tiger woods. Off course that was kind of the one that was flying below the radar where you go. I mean i got married. I went there. And i was like what is happening table lake. You know the ozark mountains you thought. I mean what i'm going to branson missouri really. That's where i'm going and then you go there and you're like oh we only this is gonna share this with my friend. I got married there and brought twelve troubles there and everyone of you know every one of the groups were where you know avid golfers. And they're like my goodness. I had no idea with. Johnny morris was doing up here and this that delivers i mean. The other thing is forced. Another one of those that you'll go to arcadia and if you go to michigan and don't go to the forest where they have a great on white soft off. I think one of his death that he's ever designed. And i love tom. Weiskopf design Because people are the better player architects out there. I put it behind than shah until court. Obviously bill is a key component of the partial. But then you've got the reversible rowdy by tom doak which is a really cool concept that i think don't pulled off i would i would make green bigger and less undulating. But i think he pulled it off if their reversible true reversible valley and then they just added a short course that keep grabbing riley. John two guys who have worked a lot for joke. Four corcoran show. These guys did winter park nine. Which you know. I've talked a lot about and they did. They did the short course at in. You can now hunker down a force and then you've got the off saga river running through that that some of the best fishing you can have you know in the world. So if you do four stews osogbo gobert arcadia. That's gonna be a great value play especially in the middle of the summer when you have that amazing michigan weather so They have me. Yeah be fish. I something they call it the It's called the holy waters it you know. They've got a patch of land attaching of stream. Be a ripley. They called the holy water. I mean you wanna fish the holy water. Who would i draft. Who wouldn't wanna do that right. That's exactly yeah. Hey by the way notice you post this on social media a little flyover of our our home here in utah.

Leo dolph radio. Go back to the show. Brian taylor bob casper with you here on real golf radio thanks so much again to match for inspiring and giving us some good insight there on buddy trips and great destinations for golf and really the shifting of golf right the having fun with golf well and you can tell that he's passionate about it. I mean he gave a gave so many courses and so many areas that you can go visit as as a group As friends that kind of thing and it's it's he's he was definitely passionate about it. When we're doing our american dunes trip in july. I was planning to head straight up. Arcadia bluffs i. We're gonna do it in arcada blocked. We're gonna we're going to go to forest dunes and play that weiskopf. Did you write that one day. I did absolutely we gotta go play that one and the little short course they have their. I'm really so that that's the key right. All those little fun aspects the putting courses the short courses because his comments spot on point thirty six every single day does not sound fun and even if he does even if it still fun it might not feel fun by the time you're done with that after after particular day right so toenails and all seas come on man especially in those places where you're walking speaking to walk in. Let's bring him in. There are back rats and then there are caddies pro jobs who are legends and caddyshack across the pga tour. We could neither confirm nor deny the existence of this burden periods. The candy unreal gov radio tech. Eddie joins us every week. Right here on real radio. This opens been being played for gaul. Probably going on twenty years now. I think we can confirm is that. He is real though. I mean he's been on with the cnn. Yeah right so catty. Near real enough estimated during my caddie career that every year i walked the equivalent of walking from denver colorado to washington. Dc with a thirty five pound golf bag on my shoulder picking up and setting it down thousands of times along the way. Wow every now and okay about fifteen seventeen hundred miles. But i figured i did every year walking. Wow that's a lot of and what you what were you gonna say. Now you sit there and what. Now i said my chair. And i eight fifteen hundred rita every year and ted. I noticed physical changes. I could have that could be a correlation there probation. Perhaps i think nation. We could probably go there anyway. I did come across some of the photos of you online the other day affirmative caddy days and are much larger than your player. And your player was small in stature. So yeah definitely taller than my actually. When i worked my the one guy i worked for was taller than me and leered for sure but yeah you know we all look back in anyway. I just say this is the nice way to say you've just grown into your calves. I can relate caddy. i can relate. We're not we're not having fun at your expense all right so so today's by the way have you ever sleet you think phil mickelson scott. Impressive cavs you know. He is always shown up his cab. Fred couples is the one who's got the cat violent but nobody knows nobody knows this because you never see freddy in short. Is this going to say. I don't know that. I've ever seen him in a parachutes check inside only together can provide so we. We've been having fun. We just got done with match. Annella talking about buddy trips. He gave us some great insight about some of the places some of the ingredients that come along with it and one of the things stood out to me. Catty is the fact that he said. Look if you're building a golf course today and you don't have a putting course or you don't have a short course. You don't even thought about the routing where you can get play four or six holes and not have to play a full eighteen. You're completely missing the boat because the one thing that we have learned from bandon dunes and some of these other places is golfers are seeking out the fun. You got to have the hang. You gotta have the golf but you got have the fun involved with it when you hear that what what comes to mind for you and what are some places that you've been to kind of meet that description we'll it definitely has a pretty cool thing with the potty course pinehurst has an amazing one. It's just huge So those are the two that come to mind right off. The bat think berkeley hall has a ever call in south carolina. could could have that wrong but i don't mix the other. Yeah i i like.

That's the main thing. Yeah and make sure you're caddying for the right player. That's all right guy. The right so i played golf this week with scott froggy. I don't know if you remember. That name caddy got probably. I'm not sure i do okay. He was in cancun with us going. I think that that actually was in the reptile part of my brain when you said that. So that's interesting. I think i'd met him when he registered. And we were getting our shirt or whatever we were getting. I seem to remember meeting him there. And if i'm correct us down taller leaner person. But i you know. Maybe i'm wrong correct. He's always been really fit and we have a picture. I actually pulled up the picture of the four of us there at the ibero star. Grand down in playa del carmen. Standing in front of the pool picture we took. Yeah so That'll be posted on our on her instagram page. Rogoff off right. If you want to check that out a little memory. That was our. That was one of my favorite buddy trips that we did mostly because it involved you we. We've had just an occasion to play golf with you. At different times. The other one was in chorus colorado springs at the broadmoor. Those are to some of my favorite memories of golf and a winged foot and actually now that you mention it country. North carolina we. Actually you never mind electric. Oh and by the way olympic. I'm there give me trying to throw their. Hey you know it was just nice to have occasion to play and then we started throwing maybe we maybe over twenty years we've had we've played more remember minded alpine. That's right by country cup and let's not forget we're we're we play up in park city. That was just awesome. It was that course. Be read legislator. yeah well not not just read legends and other that other ones who played. That was really cool. What was that. I'm so bad. I what else we may hori. Yeah no it was a private club. It'd don't think it had for that long had been built yet. We got their victory and it was. I don't think it was victory man who could have been to hey Anyway yeah had plenty of these experiences that we we need to have more take caddy. We need to have more. We do. We do you. Guys would just quit working so hard all the time and you know make an effort to get together with right right right. What max he he said when we go to san diego we need to go play gold hill. He said that's just one of the funnest times you'll ever have so we need to plan a trip to that. What's out i've heard of you. Yeah very cool right real quick caddy but we got two minutes. Left the other part of our discussion today was on handicaps. No you've been around professional golf most of your life and so you know they don't deal with the handicaps but you do play in those occasional pro ams it. We just reminding. People look at the beginning of competition season. Post your scores keep an honest handicap. It makes it fair for everybody What the pro especially pebble beach. It seems that the am pro at the programs of the winters seem to always come into question. Maybe from the top down any am involving handicapped. Someone's always going to raise an eyebrow or when someone plays well but Any any stories or commentary around that theme. Well i have a spang. And that is if the competition isn't conducted at gross. It's going to end up being gross. So that's what happened. Look Complaining about somebody. Handicap is kind of complaining about politics. Just how things work at life. You're gonna do it no matter what happens But hey you got people who fudge it this way or that way. You know you got the guy who wants to win the competition. So he's maybe not not putting in his best scores. And then you get the guy who thinks he's a plus three so he kinda makes himself a plus three really to you. Got those guys so kind of your sort of the glamour or the other. Yeah i mean there's alcyone yeah it's like everything else of life you have. People tend to look What happens a lot of golf as a lot of people who were decent a gulf thinks. They're better than they are most of the time until they finally realized because the great thing about golf. I'm not sure. There's a more humbling game than golf. Now maybe getting run over by boat jackson. At the line of scrimmage. It's more humbling than golf. But most of us don't do that But i mean for everybody you think about the worst shot for a tour pro. Who's one of the best players in the work. That bad right. it's that bad. it's so bad for the guys at their best and yeah go. That's one thing that's great about is brings you.

I'm doing sports for a long time. And i've got a lot of friends in. It's nice to have a good friend in the studio. We haven't seen each other for a number of years but certainly you know about his fine career. Sugar ray leonard. And he has a book out that we're going to be talking about called the big fight my life in an out of the ring but of course he was one of the leading boxers in the world and he won five world titles and five weight classes and right. When i knew this book was coming out i was going to be very interested in reading it and looking at it as i thumbed through it before you got into the studio here. I kinda smile a little bit. First of all smiled at some of the pictures. But as i read the information about. What's in this book. I was very impressed that you were that candidate. How hard and how painful was it for you to write this book. Well ron first of all. Let's say that You know. I cherish our friendship and i although we see every twenty years seems like but The book was a process. It was a very tedious and very emotional Process it took me nearly two years to to get the confidence to To really allow myself to be transparent to to drop my guards down to put my hands down and just be honest and You know it's it's one of those things that i'm proud of yet there's a sense of embarrassment For my character defects in my behavior. But it's not a sad book at all. it's not about tragedy. it's something is obstacles that i've faced the live now. I honestly say that. I've overcome Come july fourth it'd be five years of sobriety for me and that's without question of my greatest championships my belts. Did you have to write this book and order to better understand yourself. I came away with that impression and also to kind of free yourself of your past to move forward. This book was necessary to free myself To understand myself. Let me be honest with you. I still don't understand myself sometimes but it gave me. It allowed me to release those demons in those that pressure in the guilt. And all the things that. I've carrot inside my heart for so long. You were raised in the washington dc area. I was born in washington. Dc so i know what the areas like but tell me what it was like for a black person to grow up in that city and in that vicinity while all although i was very young I experienced a period. Appoint an incident. That really rattled me when i went to away Walking down from my house my apartment. I should say and i'll thirsty. I want to get blessed water and the guy out right. Call me the n. Word in but but not just casually it was it was with hatred man look on his face and look in his eyes that he meant what he said to get out of here. Get out of here and that too. Intelligent except my. I told my mom. Because i was expecting to hear my mom getting upset. And tell me why. But she kind of pushed under the rug like most things pushed underneath. I know it's been said. And it says it in the book that in washington. Dc there were two ways in order to get yourself in the newspaper. One of them was to do crime. And what was the other one well. The boxing boxing chose boxing But to be honest with you. I didn't i didn't realize what i had embarked upon career. Something that allow me to take care of my parents when they were very ill but i did that because my brother. Roger introduced boxing. To me. And i went down to the gym and promo park maryland. Put the clothes on and being quiet kid. Introverted cash really afraid of his own shadow. Boxing boxing foul meet. That was my safe haven. That was my. That was my home away from all. How old were you. I was fourteen at the time. Well the reason. I asked that is is that boxing is one in which you have to be aggressive. But that wasn't the nature of your personality at that time wasn't well you know what. Put the gloves zone. I i felt like superman superman. I felt like invisible. And although i was you know naturally i was i was anything but a model of ali pad but also determine mon- i was so determined i. I was such a student of the sport. I listened to everyone who had more than a day of box experience. I listen to coaches. Listen watch films. I want to be the best when you think about your family. You describe your family because in the book it sometimes comes off. And i the only word i can think of is dysfunctional. Is that a fair word. I want to say this fossil ally for me in my neighborhood. It was normal. That's all i saw. I saw fighting us for that balance on streets. And i saw in my home. That was normal to me. That's all i knew but to see your parents go at each at each other. It's always because of it was because of money and it was all so because my dad. My dad's savior The life is self. I mean my parents love this. I mean they you know they were harming. Dad worked at a supermarket. Maybe rarely saw him. He worked so hard. And my mom was lp in a licensed practical nurse. She worked very hard. I mean they make sure that we have food and shelter. One of the things that i find interesting is the fact that when i've talked to black athletes at some point in the conversation ray. They'll always bring up their mother and the black woman in the family is always very very strong person and yet in your book. You talk about your mother's mood swings. And how she could be violent. What what do you think was the cause of that. My mom as the was the one of the best moms. She protected kid. You know if you did something to meet and my mom heard about talk about hot. She was not one to back down from any one way. Anything and you know my mom. On time i remember my mom. Changing was when you know when My father upset her and she never tracked in front of us never ever but she will go into the room or to the bathroom. She come out just another person but i. I saw that that was like meat and because a lot of times they want people to know what i was doing was drugs or alcohol but i will go into a room and i would keep smiling because of our smile. I thought my ignorance. I thought that no one knew. I the one i didn't let anyone on to know wells doing but That's a selfish distant. Just that Niimi me center is the use of drugs alcoholism. Because i've never been involved with you. Understand it better than i do because you saw it in your family you've experienced. It is an escapism without question without question for the most part for me i can only speak for me When i listen to nine hundred ninety two. When i retired from boxing for one of many times I was wealthy. I was famous head at all. But i was twenty five and my career has stopped and i was in limbo so all of a sudden i had new friends. I new people around me. They were doing it. And i saw that they were having fun. I started doing it doing more. And more and more. And because i had the the funds to buy it all i kept bonnet a of born lot of almost too much. The alcohol escalated As i became less and less of a husband to my my first wife one either. I mean she try the best she could and she did the best. She could raise my two kids which she did an excellent job. But i was. I was such a jerk. I you know. I saw her last week in atlanta. Because i was a book to book signing and a dinner and accounting apologize industries. Kind i did without saying it. As looked at her and she she looked back at me. She smiled and that told me that it was okay. How angry do you get yourself when you think back at some of the things that you did you know if if i could just just say i'm sorry and that meant enough. I would do that but it's not. It's not enough sometimes. You create irreparable harm to someone especially someone that you love. And i love my my my first wife juanita without question me she. She tried her best. She tried to best of her ability to protect me from not just in alcohol from people in general and i never gave her. I never listen i. It was all about me. Everything about me So since is been involved with a program. I've learned to to be of service to to really humble to surrender and bet to has made an enormous different run. Difference run in my life. You know it's it's all about giving back ray. Leonard is with us in the studio. The name of this wonderful book is called the big fight my life in and out of the ring.

That's past direct dot com with two r's in the middle or the word daily two eight hundred six hundred five thousand four right. Now here's pastor. Rick with part one of a message called using your abilities. God has never made copies of anything. He only makes originals. He's never made a copy of a tree. Never made a copy of a plant. Never made a copy of an animal never made a copy of human being. You are unique. There's nobody else in the world like you never has been never will be god uniquely designed as an original why because originals are always worth more than copies and the bible says and we've seen in the previous weeks and if you miss those messages i would encourage you to get the cds or the tapes and catch up with us because it's real important that god said before you were born. I plan you. I thought you out. I have a purpose and a plan for your life and i have uniquely shaped you for a specific purpose that before you were born. God chose who your parents would be. What dna combination would have and he made you you so you could accomplish what he wants you to accomplish in the world and god doesn't want you to be anybody else he wants you to be you. The bible says in job there on your outline chapter ten verse. Eight god's hands shaped me and made me and god plans you for a purpose and he shaped now we use this little acrostic shape s. h. ap to represent the five things that make you you five things that make you different from everybody else. I you have spiritual gifts and we looked at that a couple of weeks ago. What am i gifted to do. And then god is putting new unique heartbeat a heart which is what do i love to do it today. We're going to look at your abilities. What am i naturally able to do. What are my natural abilities next week. We're going to look at your personality. And then the following week. We're going to look at a your experiences. Good bad positive. Negative how god uses the mall to shape you for his purpose. So what we're gonna do today. Is i'm going to give you an overview of what the bible says god says about your natural abilities and how and why he wants you to use them. Now what do you need to know about your abilities. Well i there too important versus the first one there on your outline romans twelve or six. Read it with me. God has given each of us the ability to do certain things. Well now. that's obvious what it says there is that there are no no talent people. You may say. Well i don't have any talents while you're wrong. I don't have any abilities. You're wrong the problem with you is that you know what you're not good at better than you know what you're good at. If i were to say to give me fifty things. You're not good at you. Come up with this pretty quickly. If i said give me fifty things you're good at you'd have a hard time doing it. The average human being has between five hundred and eight hundred abilities study after study after study of shown this you have at least five different abilities in your body. Most of you don't even know you've got they just come naturally to you. You don't even think of as abilities but you have that ability and part of my job is your pastor is to help you discover talents. You don't even know you've got a bill that you don't know you've got and help them put put them into service for god and for good in the world so there are no no talent people. Everybody has abilities hundreds and hundreds of them but we all have different abilities. We all have a different shape now. You've noticed that physically how we're all just look around. We're all shaped differently. Some of you are shaped like basketball players. And some of your shaped like horse race horse jockeys. Some of us are shaped like bodybuilders. Like me some of us are shaped like ballerinas like doug fields but we all have different shapes. The problem is when you go to school. They treat us all the same way and we all learn the same way. We don't look the same way. We don't have the same abilities. Interest heart shape all these things. So we all take these standardized tests like the sat. Act your psa and all these and those things. Only judge one four of intelligence. We now know that there. At least eight or nine different types of intelligence and as a result they tried to force us all to learn the same way and we don't learn the same way and we don't have the same abilities we have different abilities and they're all important lots of time. There was some animals who decided to start a school for animals and they decided courses would include running climbing swimming and flying and then they decided that all of the animals should take all the courses. Now that's where the problem started now. The duck was better than his teacher in swimming but he only made passing grades than flying and it was very poor and running so they made him drop swimming and stay after school practice running. This caused his web feet to be badly warrants. Great dropped to average and swimming but everybody felt less threatened than more comfortable with that. Except the duck now. The rabbit started at the top of his class in running but because of so much makeup work in swimming he caught pneumonia. Had to drop out of school. The squirrel showed outstanding ability and climbing. But he was extremely frustrated in flying class because the teacher insisted that he start from the ground up rather than from the tree top down. He developed a charlie horses from over extension so he only got a c. in climbing in a d in running now the eagle was the problem student which was disciplined for being a nonconformist for instance in climbing classes. He could beat all the others to the top of the tree but he insisted on using his own way to get there finally because he refused to participate in swimming class. He was expelled. The point is that god is designed specific animals to excel in specific areas. And he doesn't expect them all to do all the other things and when you expect everybody to fit into the same old all you're going to get his frustration discouragment mediocrity and failure. A duck is made to be a duck not made to be something else and you were made to be and god has given you unique abilities and he wants you to use them the way he intended for you to use them now. Your abilities are the map. To god's will for your life. Your abilities are the map at points than direction. When you know what you're good at then you can know what god wants you to do with your life. Look at what this next bible verse says. God will equip you with all you need for. Doing his will now notice. It doesn't say that god will give you all the abilities. You want that other people. Have i want to sing. like her. look like him and fake like her. God doesn't say well you can just have any oh ability. No he preplanned the abilities you were given and he wants you to be youth. He didn't want you to be you. He wouldn't have made you so he doesn't want you comparing with anybody else and trying to be somebody else you give him pleasure you give him glory. You make god smile when you use the gifts. He gave you in the way that he gave them to you. So the bible says i will give you all you need for doing his will. God does not give you abilities to do something. He doesn't ask you to do on the other hand if he asks you to do something he always gives you the ability to do it. So how do you decide what you're supposed to do with your life. What classes should i take school. who should i marry. What kind of careers you. You look at your shape. What is god wired me to be and do it points you in the right direction. Because as i said every abilities from god are important. It's not an accident intentionally picked them. I actually went through the scriptures. One time and i read through the entire bible making a list of all of abilities that god says i use i will bless in the world and i made a just a very small list. It's probably ten times that list. I'll just read you. God says up. I want i get honor through athletic ability. It's in the bible through artistic ability to architectural ability. God says i use in the world administering ability baking boat-building candy making that one debating designing embalming embroidering engraving. God says i use poetic ability. People who write poems farming fishing gardening leading managing is an ability. I give to people masonry molding musical. These are all in the bible making weapons. Neil work painting planning philosophizing. Playing xbox machinists stud slipped out one in there in vending ability carpentry sailing ability selling soldiering tailoring teaching tent making writing and on and on all of these abilities came from god. All of these abilities can be used by god and all of these abilities have a purpose on this planet and got us. I gave you your abilities and that gives you good direction. Now i want you to write this down on your outline my abilities match my call my abilities match mike call now some people you hear about them saying well. I'm called of god in the ministry. Well every believer. Every person is called by god into ministry. Some people think a calling is something that you do. If you're going to be a priest or a nun or if you're going to be a minister or missionary that god gives you a call. Every person is called god. I recalled the salvation and second. We're called the service so you have a calling on your life. You have a vocation you have a life mission and a life message and a life goal and a life purpose. that's your calling in life. And how do you know what you're calling this. Look at your shape your spiritual gifts heart and then your abilities in other words what i'm able to do god wants me to do with my life now. God expects you to use the god-given abilities he's given you in six ways. I want you to write these down. These are what god wants you to do with the ability thinking he didn't give your ability to use on yourself. There are six reasons and six things he wants you to do with your buildings number one. My abilities are to be used to honor god. I your abilities. Whether it's embalming or embroidering. There to be used to honor god and the bible says whatever you do do it. All for the glory of god. Now that means any of those abilities. I just listed and every other one can be used for god's glory whatever you do do it for the glory of god. They're all important carpentry as important as teaching and masonry is as important as preaching and managing is as important as music. They're all important. There are no unimportant abilities. God says i spread them all out and they're all important to me. So that means you can honor god by repairing cars. You can honor god by balancing books. You can honor god by helping people find a home and sell it to them. You can honor god by making music or making meals or managing an office or a million other ways. Whatever you do he says do it for the lord as if you're doing it for god and not for men and he said bring do it for god's honor now he says not only. Did i give you the ability to honor me but second to serve others. That's the second reason your abilities for the benefit of other people and god says are not just for your benefit. i peter chapter four verse. Ten says this god has given each of you some special abilities. Look this verse. Be sure to use them to make a ton of money. Oh that's the reviled sub-standard perversion translation. Let me read it again. God has given each of you special abilities be sure to use them to what help each other circle that. Help each other passing onto others. God's mini kinds of blessing. So with your buildings. You don't just honor. God you serve other people now. Nobody is good at everything. Everybody would agree on that one. Nobody's good at everything. What that means is you need me. I need you need the person sitting next to you. They need you and other people. Nobody is that has every talent. There are no superstar. Perfection people who can say to the world. I don't need anybody else. The person who says that doesn't realize how lucky they are. We need each other and during forty days community. We've talked about this how we're better together. I need you in my life. You need me in your life. We need each other. Because i'm good at some things. You're good at some things and the people next year and that's why you need a small group that's why you need a church family and why it works. Good in teams. We need each other. We're better together now. If you want to be successful in life and who doesn't i want you to be successful live. My goal is to help you be a success. Here's the key to success. Build on your strengths so that your weaknesses become irrelevant. Every successful person does this. You build on your strengths so that your weaknesses become irrelevant now. That means you work on what you're good at and just make it better. Nobody is good at everything. And let me give you a second rule of success team up with people who are good at what. You're not good at team up with people who compliment you. That is the secret behind saddleback church. One of the reasons. This church group is because i built the staff of people who are better than me in things that i'm not good at and in all of our pastors. I'm good at some things. But tom's good at some things and i'm not good at and everybody has something to contribute and nobody has it all together so we need each other now. This by the way friends is one of the purposes of marriage that in marriage. We are put together to complement each other's strengths and to compensate for each other's weaknesses. What happens is we don't compensate for each other's weaknesses. We criticize each other's weaknesses. That's how it married just four. You married a center. She married a bigger one. We put two centers together. How can you have a perfect relationship. There are no perfect relations. Everybody's got weaknesses and in a marriage. You complement each other strength and you compensate for each other's weaknesses. This is pastor rick daily.

I'm mike clifford community groups expressing hope about president. Joe biden's proposed long-term fixes for fighting poverty. One minnesota agency says it could help parents ensure their kids and grandkids avoid economic struggles as they grow in the weeks. After congress approved the american rescue plan by now proposes the american families plan. It would make permanent some of the expanded tax credits seen in the kobe. Relief package any shapiro of minnesota community action partnership says because of how they're written these tax credits have long prevented low income families from using them to the fullest extent escaping harvey for good are connected links between childhood to adulthood in terms of poverty and into the next generation children and so we are really optimistic that this could sever those lines of generational poverty in congress. Republicans have labeled the administration social spending plans as too expensive. And there's concern. Moderate democrats might not get behind all the ideas at once. I'm mike mohan. According to state data poverty affects about one in ten minnesota and one in nine children supporters of tax on capital gains are celebrating a victory in the washington state legislature.

Yastrzemski president of the washington federation of state employees says fewer than one percent of washington's will pay the tax tax does not affect the vast majority of washington is paying for it but it would benefit pretty much every citizen of this date through being able to help adequately fund all of these public services.

Your got beacon of liberty raking. Well i am back from a a much needed vacation. And i jumped right into the thick of things by calling up my man vin armani. We actually had the scheduled up maybe four or five weeks ago to talk about his book render unto caesar so i did welcome him back to the show. You probably know him from being on the show a couple of times. He was on the show last time. Back in december discussing how to survive the dim age and we lined up this interview to discuss his book render unto caesar of course The week before we did this interview there was a little bit of a twitter spat between vin. And a good friend of this program. Dave smith's we do get into that a little bit as well that being said. I really enjoyed this interview. I think you guys will as well. So here's vin our money. Then welcome back. Of course. I at this point. I think for any listener of this program over the past year show. I don't think. I need the whole dramatic long introduction for you. I think people don't know about you then. The fans of the show While they haven't been listening. I guess because he'd been on a couple of times and it's actually the case here like ben. Most people have on the show are mostly one and done. Usually i have someone on interview and find out about their life. And i move on with my life and that's colossi speak to them. I have a rare select group of guests over the years who have become recurring guest. But i think you probably you might be the only one actually who's had the honor. I dunno of being on the show three times in a year here. And i think the reason at least as far as my end goes that year. Message in the things you've been talking about. They're really been resonating with me. And i want to do things that provide value to my listeners. I think you are providing value out there right now. You know you're talking about things that a lot of people in the liberty circles aren't aren't really discussing and i don't think it's a coincidence. That this kind of coincides with things that have been changing my life for the last couple of years. I've gone from. I heard your your interview with my friend. mike. Mike frank kelly the other week and i think i was very similar to him in the sense that For many many years. I was kind of libertarian atheists. I believe in the ideas of liberty. But us i didn't. I wasn't grounded in any kind of like deeper religious aspect at all over the past couple of years. I've i've engaged in some different kinds of practices Had a few different experiences to the point. That i can't say i have taken on a religion per se but i think i'm kind of putting myself through my own comparative religion class. In a sense. I have really gotten into. Yeah i've gotten a lot to now. I've been reading the bag of gita. I've been reading Listening to jordan peter's bible lectures to anyone thing. But i definitely felt this call to become more connected to the mystical out there so that probably makes a lot of sense. That what you're talking about is resonating with me for that reason But just just before we get into things. We i actually scheduled this interview with maybe four or five weeks or so. Some more cynical fans might think that i brought you on just to talk about the recent little twitter spat. You have a day. If that's not why i brought on but since we're here i brought you on because you send me a copy of your book. I or gracious enough semi last month rendering to caesar. We will talk about the book. I can't sure loss over. This will will hang me if i doubt so If you could get into what did you. Some might set use the word. go after. Say whatever you want why would you tweet at. I think it was actually at episode. That tom woods did with dave smith were discussing vaccine passports and take it from there what what prompted you to reach out and respond to them. I guess you could say well. I mean it's the for people who follow me. Follow my twitter. Wasn't this was not a. Let's say some sort of a special tweet from me. I mean i am often. I think one of the things that i'm known for if people follow me. And what if i'm having a criticism of somebody it's almost exclusively because there's some sort of inconsistency in their narrative and i mean that's that's been true throughout this whole experience and i think that of twenty twenty certainly and i think that that's one of the reasons why people have been interested in the things that i've had to say right is because i've been looking for inconsistencies out. There's been a lot of inconsistencies but even a for better or worse. Even those who i consider my friends or my allies if i see inconsistencies if they make inconsistencies publicly i will respond publicly. So it's like if you have a public forum and especially if you are somebody who's stated goal is to increase the size and scope of the platforms that you are on so that you can spread a message. Then if that is your stated goal i am a public figure seeking platforms to spread a message and there is inconsistency in your message. I am going to publicly because your public. And you're saying that you wanna do this public and it's supposed to be a public message. I'm gonna respond publicly. And i'm going to respond showing the inconsistency and when i do i'm going if i do it on twitter and you're on twitter i'm going to tag. I'm going to tag you. Because i would want you to do the same with me because i would want to be able to respond. And that's the that's the correct thing to do. Because i believe to do otherwise would be cowardly and so i simply responded so basically what it what. It was what i was responding to. Was that while these. Two individuals have been pushing and promoting this idea that they're going to take over the libertarian. Party and that. this libertarian party misses caucus is a good strategy and a good tactic and it is what they are throwing energy at not only that they want other people to join them in this right so they are actively saying we want you to come and spend your time and energy doing this because we believe that this is a good thing to do to then have a conversation where and it was. It was specific to this conversation. And if you watch particular interview recent. I dunno last week. Something with tomlinson dave smith. Tom which actually begins by saying well. I called you to ask you to come to talk about the issue. We don't even need to say what it is the issue. It is the issue vaccine passports. And dave smith and they then go on to spend about fifteen minutes talking about how. It's actually a relevance analogy to say that that these vaccine passports are like the yellow stars that the nazis made the jews. Where okay and so what i said was there's a high level of dissonance here okay. You can't have both things either. This is equivalent to the yellow stars. Like you're saying that the jews were forced to wear by. The nazis or the libertarian party is a viable tactic for acquiring liberty at this time. Because if you put the two of those together what you're saying is the. Jews should have formed a libertarian party. Okay that so. How should the jews have have handled against the nazis to stop themselves from getting pushed into concentration camps and and gas. Well they definitely should have done a mesa's caucus and they just needed to take over a party. That has no political power and no elected officials in germany so that they can have a platform to say a message. It's like it's one or the other guys it's one or the other. Because two seconds of thought is like row you guys are totally inconsistent and that was it and that was basically and that was what i said and so then underneath that and this was where the row started right underneath that put in quotes. I said That the powers that be are creating a new caste system and so therefore we need them all to just read a one volume of human action and they'll change their minds. Now you laugh right. Why do you laugh. Because that is clear parody. It sounds ridiculous because it's and this is what the nature of parody is right that it's like so saturday night live when somebody plays trump. They're not using trump quotes. Okay they say something. That's completely ridiculous. So underneath that the response from dave was will. Can you explain it without misquoting. Me and i was like dude. Aren't you comic. And that was my response to him was bro. If you can't see clear parody parody which is d tool of comedy like it is the number. One tool of comedy is parody. You must be a really shit common. And that is a very very valid thing to say for somebody calling the if you call yourself a physicist and i write equals. Mc squared. and you go. Can you explain it without just using just random letters and numbers. And it's like bro. Aren't you if it's a physicist. Dave smith ask unlike way. You're pretty ship physicist if you don't know what equals. Mc squared this right and that was basically what and then everybody says oh economy ship comic and it's like. Did i actually do that. What i just said like you guys want it. They want there to be drama. And it's like. I don't want there to be drama. I want there to be consistency right. So that's it. That's the long in the short. The dude can hate me for it. But i would appreciate him to to. It was clear what i was saying. And so it's like the one thing he never did was answer. I think it's a very valid point that i'm bringing up. It's like should the jews. Should the jews of former libertarian party because if we are the jews being forced to wear yellow stars right now perhaps if that's what you say we are you know like let's talk about tactics that you know we're it's gotta be one or the other guys that's all i was saying. That's what i want to get into. Because i'm a fan of you. I've known day for years. I'm a fan of two. i like both. I don't care about igniting a beef or a few. But i do wanna get to the bottom as much as i do controversy because it does generate cash literally for us but i really want to get to the the actual issues at hand like the idea. Criticisms of this idea of the libertarian party takeover. And why. That is a poor us. Because i think from an correct me if i'm wrong i think from your point of view it bothers you to see people being asked to put energy into something that you feel is kind of a waste of their time and not only their time but maybe actually going against what they what we really need to be doing right now so for people out there. I know the biggest thing i hear is like look. I get what vince saying. But all we wanna do is use the libertarian party to spread this message to create more libertarians. To get people more excited about this message. Even if there's bad maybe nazi level shit going on. What's what's so wrong with that. Why can't we do that and also do that or stuff. You're talking about. Maybe find find their spiritual certain. What have you. Why can't we do it all That is that so here is the key and this was the key of what i presented today than on why it's two parts. Okay in and of itself. The idea that we're going to use the libertarian party. As a platform to spread a message. I have no problem. It's okay. I think that the libertarian party and i have said the libertarian party is disorganized. I think it's a real sink of energy for people. I think as an opinion it's a waste of time now however i could be wrong right so i don't. It's not like hard at the libertarian party. However it is a question of when and where are you and this has been my message. This is if they go back to the first time we spoke which was what june twenty twenty. I think it was something like that. The enter. do you remember that. I specifically in that interview said you are a jew in nazi germany in the early nineteen thirties. Right now i specifically said that. I believe that's as close to direct quote as as we can get without actually going back significantly right so i say this in june right nobody else has said this is the i'm speaking hyperbolic and june right but then are materialist. Rational tom woods. And dave smith what how many months later now. Nine months ten months later. Oh now were jews in nazi germany. But it's no longer the early thirties anymore. Now we've reached yellow stars. Okay and so again. It's not about on it's it's not about in a vacuum is this idea of. We're gonna use libertarian party. Has a platform spread liberties. like when. And where are you. Because if you really are german jews in nazi germany wearing a yellow star. You are sentencing people to death if you get if you. If that is the tactic that you are telling them to survive this you are. It's not just like it could be a good idea you don't know been it's like no. You are sentencing these people to death. So what are the other see. I really believe that's what's happening. What do you do you watch you watch. I was trying to pull up questions. Yes okay because we're actually getting some questions from people and i wasn't necessarily playing. I was thinking since you heard me. Try to look for a live audience. I thought i might read a couple of questions that that were getting on this. Go ahead i think this is but i think that that's my point right. My point is not about whether or not in a vacuum. This is a good tactic. My point is that if you believe. And this is the exact thing that i was saying and this is why they don't understand why this is controversial if you believe truly and you're not being hyperbolic because i'm not see i left like i believe this is what's happening so either they believe it or well so because i don't want to i don't want to do the thing that is. They believe boasts because if they believe both there's only two answers okay one. They are so dangerously incompetent and unaware of how reality works that their sentencing people to death or two. They are completely aware and their sentencing people to death on purpose. And i don't wanna do that. Okay so what. I wanna say. Is there's cognitive. Dissonance and rational inconsistency there and if they really have the best interests of people in heart at heart and especially as libertarians who are always talking about how consistency matters guys get out of the cult of personality. Okay i know. You like listening to the podcast. I'm not saying any either of their podcasts. Go away i'm not saying they haven't done great things. I'm not saying that they have it. Brought people to liberty. That's not what i'm saying. I'm not saying that they don't have the underlying right principles. I'm not saying that they shouldn't be speaking. That hot libertarian fire on the biggest platforms in the world. I'm not saying they should not be doing any of that. Okay what i'm saying. Is that if they truly believe what. I believe about win. And where we are then. They need to tell people to behave in such a way that they save themselves and their loved ones and the same their energy should be spent on. The libertarian. party is sentencing people to death. It's that simple all right so that being the case if there's people out i know if i know the right here commenting for people out there. That would agree. Generally with the message of the political message of tom. Woods of day smith. A probably your own political beliefs as well sure in early speaking i agree with them but the way i agree with them so i guess the real difference here comes down to tactics and how people should be spending their time considering the current situation. Yeah so so actually instead of me asking you a question here. Why don't i take because we have a question here from angela. Mcardle as you know. She has a big part of them. You know she's she's also supporter of lines. Liberty here sought out of school. Henrietta question she says some of your recent commentary on algorithmic and being oriented towards christ like behavior paraphrasing. She says does not seem to provide option for fighting back against the state given the fact that incidents like waco and ruby ridge of happened. How do you propose. And people who opt out of government should prepare to fight back against the state when the state inevitably comes for them. Yes the state does inevitably come for you. K in thirty four bc. There was this guy. I thirty four. Ad there was this guy right and he had this message and the state came for him and three hundred years later he was the center of the state that killed him. Okay now it would not there. Were many many. This was in a guy in judea right carpenter's son. You know some crazy. Things said about this guy. He had these. Yeah you had these twelve cats that followed him around and then you know afterwards. They started sorta spreading that story and spreading the message. Now it wouldn't have there is no there were plenty of Armed uprisings by those same groups of people. None of them were able to take back land in judea. Never mind takeover rome. You know who took over rome that one guy the one guy who bore his cross the one guy who lived in principle and time and time and time again it is martyrs that changed the world. It is the people who that's how you really fight. It's a mimetic fight. You have to win hearts and minds if you win the hearts and minds you don't even need guns and even now this it's not even just the righteous that say this mouse whole message was it is not guns that win wars it is will will and it is a will to die for your beliefs and so that is what is going on that is the reason and the power of christianity and that is what being christ like is it is not be sweet to people go read the gospels crisis not sweet. He's an asshole. He tells his followers that they're pieces of shit. Constantly constantly. he calls people hypocrites throughout anybody who comes to him and tries to catch him up in something or say something. He calls them hypocrites. He sends people away from him constantly. He's like what you really want. It sell everything you've got come. Follow me. I can't do it well by. That's christ but he talked the talk and then he walked the walk. He went all the way. There was no fight what he tells peter to sheath his sword when he comes to be arrested. Peter had said i will. I'll i'll die for you. what are you talking about. Peter pulls sort out crisis betrayed in. The garden of gets semi by judas. Peter pulls his sword in christ tells him peter sorta way. I gotta go to my father. I'd say that the lion's liberty audience. Just broadly speaking over the past seven years probably contains more than two types of people. But probably speaking. There's a couple of kinds of people that are listening right now. Some of which do have a more religious background are christian or judeo christian or have some kind of religion and might actually be like really agreeing with what you're saying understanding what you're saying where others another segment of the population. Who might have been more like me a couple of years ago. It's probably what. I would be thinking a couple of years ago which is saying okay. So great so cool. Vengeance wants us to read the bible become christ lake awesome. No no not at all i off. You are christian if you are. If you are a libertarian. You are christian period. You live inside of a christian vernacular all of your principles and morals. If you're listening to this if you if you aspire to liberty you are christian. Why do i say that we hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal and are endowed by their creator. It's a christian. God with certain alienable rights chief among these life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Also we hold self evident that governments are instituted among men to protect these rights. This is this is libertarian. This is what she believed. But the only reason you have rights is because you have your first axiom. Hume's guillotine and says you cannot derive an off from an is. Your first axiom is that you are created by god equal to everybody else and that god a god the christian god has given you those rights. That's it you are a christian whether you go to church or not you believe your whole. There is no libertarianism. Without the christian god there are no. There are no human rights without the christian god. This did not exist before christianity. This man was not even. This did not exist period before christianity introduced by christ. You are a christian. Whether you read the bible or not. And i'm not asking anybody read the bible and you don't need to read the bible right all. I'm explaining when when. I'm explaining these bible verses what i'm explaining what is the actual story that is at the root of your culture and so when you and you're asking what changed the world whether you're a christian or not. There is no question that at the center of rome to this day is christ that is not a religious statement. A statement of fact. I think something you touched on there is is what i think. It's just a upmost importance no matter what you believe is what you mentioned. There is having the story to tell. And the fact is you can believe that there is a pile of energy and exploded into a big bang and then just things happen in our here. You can believe that you can believe something else. I don't really care if you believe one of those things or whatever you believe in between it doesn't matter because it's it's still a absolute fact absolute truth. That stories are what move people stories are wire. Civilizations are built stories are wile or maybe lack of stories you might say why civilizations fall apart last story which is a lot about what what you talk about in your book render unto. Caesar and i just think you. Have you ever really good. Knack i think for. I don't think i'm not coming at this from really a strong knowledge of christianity. I was raised jewish. But i think i was gonna raise as like. Oh yeah there's some silly stories my eight years old. I think tori's my parents told me so. I can go to celebrate the holidays right. I was i was basically. A jewish atheist describes a lot of jews. There there's a lot of christians to obviously as we said but christi- christianity judaism. You know it is it is it is basically a form of judaism that you can that you don't have to be that that is not tied to your ethnicity right so it gives it. Obviously you add that little mean change and the viral nature of it is like you know but at the end of the day it's judaism you know like all of the patterns are jewish pattern. So yeah i mean a lot of jews are like may were your raised with the stories and at the end of the day. You like going to bar mitzvahs. You like drinking wine. You let the ceremonies. But you're not necessarily wedded to it as any kind of ideology but it's only in more recent years maybe as you say maybe deep inside me maybe i still did hold onto some kind of some kind of version of this story because at the end of the day i mean there are there are many libertarians. Who come at things from you. Know i i read all of human action. And then i read rothbart and i just think i see the efficiency and i just know no matter what no matter what somebody wants in life. It's it's always going to be economically better because of you know everything we learned from. But i've never met anyone in my well since they've never met anyone i've met. I've interviewed some people on the show that say they got to libertarianism through that sort of thought process but does that really move anyone. Are you going to sit down like you kind of said earlier. Sit down with someone. In nazi germany human action. We'll wait for them to take two three years to to read it and understand economics even if they do that. Is it really going to move them. Is it really going to is there. Is there any kind of story there. And i kind of plays into things you've been talking about and a lot of things i've been reading about. Hold on hold on. Hold on so i think if somebody if somebody stead either burn that copy and step on and spit on that copy of human action volume one or i'm gonna kill you and if you step if you step on its and spit on it and then throw it into the fire. I will let you go on your own. I don't think there's anybody who's dying for human action but yet that exact scenario has happened with jews and christians and muslims for millennia. That were they've said there. Are you kidding me. There's kill me now. Go ahead do it right now. I will not renounce this and that tells you something about how you fight because that's where the fight is. The fight is not out here. The fight is in here because it's in the hearts of the people that you're fighting anyway because if you want to even win a war read the art of war. From the beginning sun tzu says the greatest the greatest generals and the supreme means of fighting is to win a war without fighting at all so much of that book is about making it so that the will of the enemy is not there to fight at all. And that's actually way preferrable and so how do you do that. I the will has to be in your own people and then there will on the other side needs to be degraded. You need to have stronger will this is this is any warfighter knows this. This is the reason for psychological operations. This is the reason for athens of mass destruction. This is the reason for all of these things shock and awe right. Your enemies know this. You have to put something in your heart a tool that you are willing to die for and if you are willing to die for christ guess what. you have. All of libertarian. A real christian is libertarian. Christian a real christian is a libertarian life liberty pursuit of happiness that comes from the real christian story right and that they are trying to be righteous. You get in. If from a real christian truly righteous consistent you will get a world and a lifetime. That is the libertarian. Utopia that is the kingdom of god. It's actually the it's actually the christian story the christians the kingdom of god is an kapustan. This is what this is. What is totally missing from out of the cognitive framework and set. Hey and kapustan that idea of this. Utopia based on principle that my daughter say that is that what you're saying is an kapustan is old pattern. It's the kingdom of god. The kingdom of god right and even before that it's israel it is the medic israel the promised land. This is an ancient pattern. And it's like yo- mahan but are you willing to die for kapustan really. I know you're willing to lark french stamp right. I know you're willing to put on barred body armor and carrying around an air fifteen in march. I know you're willing to do that. But are you willing to not carry any weapons. Are you willing to sheet your sword and be executed publicly for it because that's a totally different thing and guess. What if you wanna know how you actually win the war. It's the latter not the former. Gandhi can speak to that martin. Luther king could speak to that. Jesus speak to that. I know what a lot of people are thinking Listening to this watching this right now. They're thinking all right. So here's what vince. Tell me i gotta do. I got to become a martyr. I have the die to to see the world. I wanna see. Well look vin. I got a family. I got kids. I don't want to be a martyr freedoms back. i just want to prevent vaccine passports. Then you don't get your freedoms back then. You don't get your freedoms backs that's the answer. You don't get your freedom back. Hobart hey doug okay yes go ahead valentin she if my wife could grab her. She's so cute. She's yes she hears me cry but the answer is you. Don't get your freedoms back. There's a great book that i would. I would suggest that everybody read. It's by a rod dreher who also wrote this book. The benedict option was a bestseller. But this book is recent and it's since like the covid stuff and since all of these lockdowns and whatnot and it's called live not by lies and it's him in eastern europe. He spent a lot of time. Interviewing these Catholics and orthodox in the former soviet union about how they behaved during that time and it really was about and these people are seen as being the true revolutionaries that changed everything there was between printing sambas dot. They got arrested many times. They were holding mass in their home. They were bringing people in and exposing them to. They would watch westerns american westerns right. This is truly what ended the soviet regime. It has to end from inside where the will of the people which you're presenting to them when they're they're ready and they need to see. Wow that look at the principle of that person if you read the lives of the saints like there are so many scenarios where there are saints who are martyred and as they're being martyred literally the people who are executing them are like. This is too powerful. There's so moved by their like. I can't kill them anymore. You're going to have to kill me and they become martyrs in that moment and it's like you it's everybody around. It's not getting on the biggest platform spitting that hot fire. It's living in truce. That's the fire. That's the fire. It's not railing against this and railing against that. You can rail. That's perfectly fine. But are you willing to bear your crosses well because you say i've got a oh i've got kids and i've got a family and all of that and it's like okay. You've got kids in a family. If i if if there was a chance that through your a father if somebody tells me look. Here's the options. Either you do nothing and you basically have to wait. And your children and their children and their children will grow up under tyranny or you live in truth in your a martyr for this cause and there's at least one percent chance that your children get freedom as opposed to zero and you continue on. I think that's the real and it's bigger than one percent by the way and what people will have to give up is there's not gonna be gulags. there's not going to be gas chambers. It's not even that it's like it's literally comfort that's it we're going to have to give up the brave new world. You're going to have to lose some comfort. You're gonna have to take some wrists you're gonna maybe your whole family has to eat rahman for months. Maybe it's for a year. Maybe it's for two right but that's the degree that it's going to go to but we're so soft were so soft like it's not consumerism. It's not buying another. Ar it's not. It's not buying a three d. printer. So you can print pieces of it. You haven't used it. They've taken everything from you. They've literally taking your entire civilization and you haven't fired a shot. You haven't fired a shot if you haven't fired a shot now you ain't firing a shot at the future. That's just alarming. It's larvae and we're doing people a disservice when we do anything but call it larvae. We are doing an extreme disservice. Because our enemies know. It's the people who want to oppress the people who want to turn us into their slaves even more than we are and have been steadily implementing. It know that they know that they can distract you. I want to get back to something you. We touched on earlier talking about the story talking about the narrative because up no matter what you believe like i was saying earlier the people that you just mentioned that are implementing this stuff. The people that are causing the situation that we're in the thing that we're fighting people are trying to fight against whether it's through the muses caucus through the libertarian party through whatever it might be those people have a belief system who maybe not one single belief system but they definitely have belief systems whether it's worshiping mollica that bahamian grove or one of a million different things and once you start to see these things. It's so obvious at for people out there that i think a lot of people now are following like the work of people like jonathan pujo can points out a lot of the symbolism like symbol as. They're just for kicks like i. I don't know what to say. It's an is there for a reason. You don't have to believe in in like a satan figure or actual literal demons to understand that these people do they believe in something like that. Yes so how are you going to combat that without at least knowing your enemy without at least understanding your enemy and without playing on the same battlefield and you're gonna you're gonna go on the biggest platforms in the world and spit. That hot libertarian. Fire right that's going to do it. You're going to rail against social welfare programs in the military industrial complex on the biggest platform. Spit in that hot libertarian. Fire right that's gonna do it. That'll do it. That'll do it. All right guys. Will speaking of hot libertarian fire. You know who is spitting. That hot libertarian fire. Not one not two not three but five days a fricken week is our good friends. Nate and charlie over a good morning liberty Just like brian. Show being bleep head This one airs every single day and doesn't always air in the morning put. It is a daily great look at the events of the day and these guys just do great commentary great work. You don't wanna miss the dumbly with the week. that's for sure you're gonna want to subscribe. You don't miss a single day of the great analysis from new and charlie over it. Good morning liberty. These guys have worked in the healthcare industry in the music industry they have some really interesting perspectives on the ideas of liberty very valuable perspectives. That's why i am subscriber to the show as well and you should be too so. Check him out wherever you find podcasts. And of course they're amazing. Url bernie lies dot com. So do you see any role for the political system in the united states to combat this in any way or to spread a message or do you just think it should be abandoned entirely. If we're really trying to create a real change here. I i really don't know at this point. What type of like how asleep and unaware you have to be to think that that which we call the political system in the united states still exists. Have you not paid attention to the executive orders over the last year like seriously extra judicially and people are like well. Yeah but they take him to what we do is we take them to the and that we sue and that we do this and then they get dropped. It's like yeah. A lot of these things got dropped after. How long six months seven months and the thing is you have to win those every single time. They only have to win a once because the one thing that it didn't do as it didn't bar them from making another executive order in the future. It just took down that particular one but they can print these things up and and and sign 'em no problem. This is where we're act. There is no like it's like okay. Maybe if you said we're gonna we have some idea that we are going to replace. All the governor's well first off replace them with libertarians. First off in a in a democracy. You're going to need votes okay. So first off. The there aren't even a majority of people aligned with your beliefs. That's the first thing the second thing is no matter. How much talking you do. There's never going to be that many people aligned with your beliefs because this is not this is human nature have even even when the declaration of independence was written. It was a minority of people that were in support of it in the colonies. Okay so it's like it's always a minority of people and the second thing. Is you huge. Suck at politics like these are too entrenched political parties with so much power and neither one of them has an interest in relinquishing power. Because if isn't just like it's only been democrats using these executive orders so the governor of texas you know rescinded the basque aids and and now has said oh we'll businesses can't and i i i believe that the santa's and florida's done it to saying we'll we're barring. We're barring businesses from taking a vaccine from demanding vaccine passports. Okay how did he do it with an executive order Okay so you're not. It's not even like you're living in in truth. It's not even like principle political process. We need the political process. Constitutional just great executive order. It's like my god. It's like dude. No you're living ally you want it to go your way but you're already not in the majority. You're in the minority. You're a jew in nazi germany. Kinda reminds you something we discussed last time. How you know there was the time on probably still now but there was restaurants in la that we're starting to open up with certain conditions upon them and there is a video of one guy just giving hell to well not really held kind of kind of sort of yelling at the health. Inspector saying look complied with all your stuff. I've done this. I've done that. And you're still shutting me down and i see it similarly here. It's like well you've already agreed to practice. You've already agreed to the premise. So if you're now look. I mean i'm somewhere in the middle here like yeah. I don't want that same passports. You so part of me is like good. I don't want them use. But the other part of me is like but i can't really agree to this premise. Can i can. I really agree to the premise that a state governors should be using executive orders to ban business of doing things. And then that's going to be our salvation here. We all move to florida and we're all good now. I'd like to think it's that simple. But again i see it as similar in that will. Maybe you're getting a concession that you like in the moment maybe these restaurants are getting a concession. They like in the moment because they can find open for six hours a day or something as long as they keep people twenty five feet apart. But they've made the concession already. And i feel like there's a similarity here where okay well fine. Maybe you like the governor santa's banning vaccine passports. But you've just made the concession the tyrannies all good well this is plato in the republic like four thousand years ago man. You know what i mean you know. I'm sorry twenty. Four hundred four hundred bc. Plato in the republic says this and no other is the route from wichita when i. He appears above ground. He is a protector. And it's like look the same way that you think that it is great that the is protecting you with. His executive order is the same way that the woke think. That gavin newsom is a god and that he is protecting them with executive orders but the fact of the matter is that even the ancients knew it always starts with the protector. Plato wrote the stellar republic. He said this and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs when i. He appears above ground. he is protector. That is to say it's every tyrant first appeared as a protector in what they did. And because that was. It abandoned their principles. This is a common pattern man. This actually kind of makes me think of somebody specific that you've mentioned a couple times and once you started talking about it and when i see it i can't stop seeing it every time i see him now. I'm not sure if you might know who. I'm alluding to but you've talked a little bit about matthew mcconaughey this has been pushed and what i fear. The most now is not even the woke kness not like biden and his his sort of his catering to the crowd. It's kind of like the reaction to that and the kind of people that are right now that are considered themselves libertarians. Those people that are cheering to santa's maybe the same people that might choose the anti in that might cheer the anti woke dictator. That might come along as the sort of counterbalance that one hundred percent. Dude bro. the libertarian party. Those people who are in that. Just wait at this is. This is my venture donnas here just so matthew. Mcconaughey is lining himself up for some sort of major political thing. Some sort of major run. It's either going to be governor of texas and or president so it might be governor of texas and then within two years president he'll he'll abandoned the governorships. This is actually a path to the presidency. George w. bush did it right so the and it's it's a common path is a path that works and he's got the name recognition i guarantee you that the libertar- people within the libertarian party. You're going to be like you know. He's a pretty. He's probably a pretty good decision mike. He's probably pretty good. He seems like he's he's probably kind of for free market. He's he seems like a free market guy. He's coming from out and it's like a texas. He's probably jesus like i guarantee. And the reason why is because it's a lack of principles you couldn't have less principled person than an actor and it's not like we haven't had an actor as president before ronald reagan and look at how much the conservatives love him and it's like no he's an actor but matthew mcconaughey was in dallas buyers club shirley he picked up a thing or two. I'm saying i'm saying you know what i mean like. No it's real. It's real like those characters that he played and look we had an donald trump because had donald trump not done the apprentice. That's what people like. We gotta go back to two thousand sixteen right. The apprentice was just coming off being like the biggest show on television basically and who people saw donald trump as was the guy at the border. Your fire you're fired. You're fired is all acting but that was who. Oh he's so he's authoritative. He knows what he's doing. You know he knows how to delegate and put you know all these people on then he even put amoroso who was on the show. Who is a big character on the show even put her as like a key advisor in the white house. It's like come on come on man right. It's this this people are when you when you have no principles then all you go with business static preference because those are the two. That's what we're talking about here. Right is that it's like no. You have no problem with executive orders. You just don't like that executive order when it's your guy when it's your aesthetic preference you're fine with the executive order and this is this is. I'm not asking people to read the bible. Not asking them to do any of that. I'm saying find something that you're willing to die for. But what i know. Is that the people who look in earnest. You end at the thing at at at the pattern that people have been willing to die for and when you look. It's always religious. It's always religious. Why because those are the most powerful patterns because they are consistent describe reality and if you live that way your life gets better if you live that way you get more free. Who's going to die for you know three percent greater. Gdp slightly better market efficiency. That's the that's the point is that no one is going to die for that but your enemies are willing to kill for something else right. They're not so much willing to die but they're certainly willing to kill and as libertarian. See we don't have that option because our principles if it is don't hurt people and don't take their stuff we've cut ourselves off from the it's sufficient to be willing to kill we've cut ourselves off from it we. We are not allowed to say well. I'm willing to kill for it. But i'm not willing to die for it. You can't say that and be a libertarian. You can't you can't okay. So because that even if you're someone who's like self self-defense defensive violence it's like well when you enter into that if you're like yeah i've got my guns and if you come on my property and you come armed it's gonna be so you're what you're actually saying is i'm willing to die because you're not surrendering right you're not surrendering but the person coming on doesn't have to be willing to die they have to be willing to kill and then if it gets too tough for them they're going to retreat but you're saying he won't retreat this whole idea and so it's like what are you willing to die for and it's just like well if you don't have kids and you don't have a family what are you willing to die for probably not much seriously and that's why we are where we are and that's why it works for the powers that be to be like don't have children have your career oh no no no no no no no no no hold off be old be old and tired and set in your ways when you have children do that is very important this is the moment or not the moment per se but these past couple of years are like the collective moment where i'm like i'm the old person now because like ten years ago i thought that kind of thinking was like the old fashioned way like oh yeah everyone gets married and has kids blah blah blah. I don't need to do that. I can just live my life and have a good time and have fun and ten years ago in ten years later so from kind of the time had that attitude more so i look back and now i just see like the nefarious nature. Everybody that pushes that sort of message. I see i mean. I'm in no way anti trans or anti-gay or anything like that and then then people will now go clip. Whatever i say. whatever. I don't care. But i can see that why this stuff is pushed so much. I'm all for everyone's rights. Do whatever they want. But there's difference between agreeing with the rights to do what they want and actually pushing it and actually saying yes. Children's take hormone blockers thirteen because they can't make that decision yet and they're going to be better off for it and if you oppose that your monster and so this stuff is so obvious to me. Now that i can't even believe that. I ever thought otherwise but once you see some of these things like what did you see matthew mcconaughey as potential next antichrist's in your mind. It's hard not to see it when you see him in interviews and you see the way it's being talked to you and you see the ways he's saying profound things without saying anything at all doesn't say anything. Yeah it's squid actually really amazing. It's really impressive. It's really weird. I i don't know. I kind of as i've been gone down this journey lately. I believe more and more in synchronicity. And it wasn't long. Before i saw you start to tweet about matthew mcconaughey one night. I had this dream. That i was supposed to interview matthew mcconaughey man. I was like for instance common dream. I have where. I'm supposed to do something but i am running lakes. It's away most common dreams. But in this case it was specifically matthew mcconaughey. And i don't even remember. The interview happened. But i just remember i just remember his face in there and then not a couple of weeks later. I said you tweeting about this guy. You know the next strong man or something like that. Why did that appear in my brain. Maybe maybe there's a rational reason for it but it's just one of those things whereas like well well patterns so we put together patterns which i think gets to the point of this is the powers and principalities idea is that why did the ancients see there as being these organizing systems above them and i think as materialised. We can kind of explain it. So like somebody might say well there's a demonic satanic tannock plot to make it so that people don't have children and you could go like okay. That's like for a mystic. Who understands what that is like. If you at a simple level if you live as though that is true you know you have the same result as if you really understand what's going and it's just basically like that people don't have children for the exact reasons that we said they have. There's very little that they're like somebody else's being oppressed over there. You know my neighbor got dragged out and you know if you don't have kids but there's this thing that happens when like you know you have children and just biologically things change and psychologically things change and now it is your job to protect these little creatures and you become way more aware of potential threats threats that you wouldn't think about i mean there i have to. I'm with my wife and kids. The places that i am willing to go like literally just physically walk or incredibly different than single me. Sure right. i mean single me could go into the most dangerous. You're listening to the heartland newsfeed radio network at live dot heartland use fee dot com.

No you go there you go. Okay yeah if you can get it a little louder. That'd be awesome. So my name's luke harrison random for house of representatives for legislative district seventeen which includes most chandler all of sun lakes and small sliver of gilbert here in arizona and i ran with my eyes. My eyes closed. I thought that since arizona had the mail in ballot since nineteen ninety four that we relate to save speak for mail in ballots. I thought our election system here in arizona was perfect or next a perfect. Cast my vote on friday october thirtieth and i made a facebook live and i said hey guys. We have had melon both voting three decades. We are golden no shenanigans. Fear on the second week of november. When i did my deep dive into the data. Oh my was it. Drug jaw dropping. Why did you take it was good. You go ahead. There was nothing wrong here. You'll do why would you even say that. That's that's what they convince you of because arizona you know because because of the pandemic all these other states were doing this massive mail in voting that they had never done before and there was a chance that there could be fraud will arizona because we had it for so long. You know i was. I was politically naive earning. That's the best way to explain. Political natively even say if i was i was on. I typically consider myself ran for for offices. Well did you not know that. Yeah that's what i'm saying. I ran for office. And i thought i was. I was very popular. The reason i was popular because black lives matter apologist and keep akeem out your made during my campaign pretty much. It didn't put in mainstream media. Didn't wanna know anything about that. But when people drove around and saw that my signs had 'em charon and soi stickers all over they knew they knew. I was being attacked. And sometimes when you're attacked people come out and they support you even more publicity all publicity. So what was your skip to the end on the campaign. How many candidates and what was the officer. I apologize because we got your volume fixed on our end. I probably i didn't hear a lot of the i thirty seconds. But the What office was that. you're running for. How many people would you run against so house of representatives. I think because of kobe. I wasn't primary so there were two positions open so it was myself one other republican jeff one answer and then the democrat who won jennifer pollock And basically jeff and jennifer worthy incumbents. So i was the one. I was trying to come in and kick out. The democrat and our district still had a four point advantage. I added shot. I had a really good job. So i lost by a little under eleven hundred votes out of i mean if you look at how. Many people voted for president. It was like one hundred forty three thousand something. So i didn't lose. I calculated i lost by point eight percent this year. Did you know or you're you're you're so close as why i mean what i wanna know. What the the re. We almost made a next time. We're going to do it next time. We're this close and you know again. Vote voted in both hard enough to go vote. And and you're saying no refined freight full one. Why well your political never name. I'm going all right from wind was started phone. Okay we're we're going into break. We'll be right back. But live harrison crimes of the crown by captain mark the crown cast the world in shadow and claims to be our guiding light cowards clamor for security from boogeyman and ghost stories. Well i say these hobgoblins are imaginary. I say those. They propped up as our liberators are now subsisting. On our bondage. I say there is freedom in the black. And that's exactly where we intend to go. The crown banishes its own officers for exposing its crimes and tortures dissidents to the brink of madness it dominates the globe and swallows the wealth of generations leaving only blood and excrement the crown calls it piracy to explore frontiers beyond its grasp. So the time has come for us to define the conduct among pirates. I say the crown has trampled our necks long need decentralized solutions to centralized problems looking for a community of like minded scoundrels or just want some swag to let the crown know what you think of it. Join the conversation at pirateswithoutborders dot com. We won't be hard to find. A congressman recently revealed that legislation totaling twenty nine hundred pages and involving more than one.

Show where we're going their arms in a row ask people for talking to liz harris now lives harris arizona election fraud audit now what she let the last segment. You know what. I keep an eye on. The clock is still got that echo. They bring it down so pleased through the break. We'll catch you up. I got clock here l. Set up all right. we're good. We're give her get now. What we're gonna do is let liz monologue us. She went through the process. She comes to the end of it. She gives her opinion now. We didn't have any problems here. We were very very very very very close and then what happened. We'll start the election. So i whoa. I lost the election but a little under eleven hundred. And then i deep dive into the voter registration. Because i'm trying to look for dead voters. But what. I find more interesting. Is i find that one out of five people on the voter rolls they don't even live in arizona or existing. A national davis. So that's over. Forty seven hundred people signed up on. Its smells funny dot com and they went out canvassing and they helped me. Find all of these phantom voters. Now it's not that the residents did anything wrong. It said these. These households had people voting out of them who they didn't even know who these people were one way. The melon fraud is committed because the voting registration records say that that household received a ballot. And that someone who did not exist mel that ballot back. That is a probable huge problem. We heard about this that you were. I didn't know how it happened. You had a web page forty seven hundred people doing anything like oh my god so you come in. And they went into some warm or was a them when they walked through the door. I mean how give me the process. They were going picking people existence here. Let's go let's go ahead and kill our video. it's taking up the bandwidth here okay. So how did these forty seven hundred people. You know approach today get a form that they were filling out that they have somebody going with them. How does it work. What went to that site. It smells funny. Dot com so. If they live in arizona they fill that out we even had people travel here from out of state to assist. And all we did it. They buddy up with someone and we just asked simple questions number one. Did you vote actually. Did you vote. Why did you vote in person by mail or you didn't vote and then the last question was. Did you receive any extra ballots and the reason this is important is because as of yesterday this is really important. I gotta let your viewers know about this. We are get we got a letter. Okay and the letters from the brennan center for justice. The leadership conference conference and protect democracy. Okay read very leftist organizations and with. They're doing they've right. I'll just read this first sentence here. We right tuber quest that you deploy the federal monitors to the arizona veterans memorial coliseum where agents the arizona senate are reviewing wants as part of a so call on it evokes cast for federal office in the twenty twenty general election america county so early. What i'm trying to tell everyone. They want to send down the department of justice and every other crony out there. Because we don't know what we're doing and the canvassing that we've done called becomes part of bins. What is it. i've six-page letter. And it basically says that when we canvas voters we were intimidating. And i got news for you. Not only were. We not intimidating. Nine out of ten voters thanked us for actually showing up and asking us questions and yet we got this letter saying that we we intimidate and all sorts of things in this letter. It's a blanket there any and everything that they can. I've been through this. I'm i'm you have to be politically naive in order to go through all of this with a fresh mind and you stumble across so many things you know you. Just you need to have faith in the system to be shocked by. There should be no faith in so in this process. I bet there was a bunch of a bunch of other people that kind of amped up their activism by their own personal experience and they convinced themselves see. This is what you're going through. His people are now convincing themselves or family. Their friends their neighbors their community. That we don't think we know we know we went. We look we saw. We see now. They did not anticipate you going to that end to actually tracking down the people that the addresses that were provided and the people that said they were voted. How and how did you select which homes you went to. How did that happen. So bobby payton was a mathematician statistician financial wizard who i fold in on black friday. The day after thanksgiving november twenty twenty. I called him up. And i said hey bobby of got a problem and i had met bobby at a trump fundraiser a year and a half prior. And i said bobby you know one out of five of these people. I can't even i'm them. They're on the voter rolls. I can't find him in. My database sweats up and he said liz. Let me only take a couple of hours on this. This is anything of interest to me three days later. Wow did he have a lot of information for me and he he helps us understand A lot of these. If i like part of the algorithm but he keeps the algorithm pretty proprietary. But of its common sense when you have like a thousand people registered to vote at the same. Po box that's a little odd when you have people registered to vote on vacant land. That's pretty odd. And it you know. But the one thing that bobby him up with he goes you know i'm just foul census data here and you had a hundred percent increase in voters but arizona's population only increased by forty two percent over the last two decades. Really statistically not possible. That's one example. Then he also noticed something else with john gray passionate about what we did was we made our tracings soup for large so instead of having now look cool community spirit or you go and you vote at your local library and lady sitting. There knows who you are exactly now. We have precincts eight thousand people large here in arizona. So that's the other thing. Bobby had two thousand precincts in nineteen ninety today. You only have fifteen hundred despite your massive growth so one thing when i talked to people working on this around the country all of them are they say the same thing. We've got to reduce the freezing sizes. And i'm gonna ernie i'm gonna be patched when you tell me that this stuff was worked on in the ninety s and we are here today where we are really makes me sick to my stuff. Some lawsuits the coverage in the press is on the side of the corruption. Advanced guy go into the break. I want people to kind of public. Yeah so what we'll do when we come back. We're going to where they're at now. We know we know there's from. Now what do we find out when we come back. We'll check it out. Mel's money are you a crypto currency advocate.

You can sign up to receive the latest about the liberty radio network the our email updates at updates dot eleryan dot. fm that's updates dot l. r. n. dot fm. It's time for declare your independence with ernest handcock to be a part of the show. Call six two two six four twenty eight hundred back. it fell talk this harris. Now we're into you know we we we we know we there's something here. There's a whole bunch of smoke. It also worked at what we're gonna do. What shall we do about it. So now they decide. We're we're going to go through a process here and you have to get you know what we've always missed his. You know having anybody on our side we had filed suit. We got judges on their side. We got press on their side air. Go be some corruption you can get over it and here comes and no matter how much we show her how much i mean it. Make good little titillating information and a lot of us would know and that was the one thing we really doing this for ourselves. First anybody else paying attention be cool but we had to know we have to know well. Now whole bunch of people know well dim. What do you do support. Come from was her legislators to get to this process. You had to have done something and got somebody scared. What'd you do all right. So i believe they were only a handful of legislators that wanted to dive into this. Understand that last session here in arizona basically kovin hit so they had to do the signing die ending the session early so here. This is my personal opinion. But i think i'm spot on those. Legislators all received have money from all these different groups right and allowed accusing anyone. Who for the bottom line is they had to get back into legislation to basically finish out with the finish. Twenty twenty not work on election integrity. So what i believe happened is a lot of legislators. They started screaming. 'ali al election integrity. We gotta work on this and they put together a lot of bills that had next to no meet them. And when you ask me how did this get started.

They need to quickly design coverage for each one business that want personalization and speed or going with a smarter. Hybrid cloud using the technology and expertise of ibm. The world is going hybrid with ibm visit. Ibm dot com slash hybrid cloud. We need to talk about the empathy gap so the empathy gap is why we sometimes hate on people on the other end of the political spectrum. Or it's five. Maybe we shrug our shoulders. The problems of those who look different or live different or love different than we do. It's why we almost certainly aren't doing enough to protect our kids and grandkids from climate change. Its can just be difficult sometimes to care about people that we don't know or to do right by people who don't even exist yet. But what if. I told you that that same empathy gap can also get in the way of us doing right by ourselves in our twenties and beyond and before i go on let me say that everything about to talk about also applies to all of us out there who are well beyond twenties but for a little bit of background in twenty thirteen. I gave a talk about. Why are twenty matter. So it's about almost ten years later. I'm still a clinical psychologist. Who specializes in twentysomethings. But these days the twentysomethings i ac- they know their twenties matters so they want to get there from right. They wanna move to the right city. They wanted to take the right job. They wanna find the right partner. They wanna have the right answers well. The bad news is there are no right answers. There are no right answers for where you should live or where you should work or how you should settle down. These are what are called large world problems because there are just too many unknowns now app no algorithm know. Any of them can ever solve these problems. Or answer these questions for you but the good news is because there are no right answers. There are no wrong answers. There are only your answers. So you're twenties or a great time to listen to be honest with yourself. There a great time to have a conversation with your future. Self so philosopher. Derek parfitt said we neglect our future selves because of some sort of failure of belief or imagination. Some say that again because it's really important. We neglect our future selves. Because of some sort of failure of belief or imagination. So when you're young it can be difficult to imagine or believe that you could ever really be thirty. Five especially when most of the influencers uc on instagram. Tiktok or younger than that. But that's a problem. Because research shows that our brains think about our future selves similarly to how they think about strangers and that's where the empathy gap comes in. It can be difficult for us to care about a version of ourselves that we haven't met yet yet. Research also shows that if we find a way to close that empathy gap between our present selves and our future selves. We start to think more about what we could do now to be kind to ourselves down the line so one of my favorite studies on this researchers used virtual reality to show twentysomethings what they would look like when they're old scary. I know but the twentysomethings who saw the age more ourselves set aside more money towards retirement than those who didn't so i don't have virtual reality in my office and saving for retirement isn't something that comes up a whole lot. But what does come up a whole lot. His at about eighty five percent of life's most defining moments take place by around age. Thirty five so. I asked my clients to imagine themselves at age thirty five and i asked him to believe in their ability to have created those defining moments. And then i asked him to get really specific about what they see. Do i look like where do i live. What do i do for work. Do i enjoy the work. is it meaningful. Is it important. does it pay well. Might these things be true monday. Which of these things do i really care about. What about after work. Do i come home to do. I have a partner. What does that relationship look like. How does it different or similar to the ones that i saw growing up or their kids in the picture. How old was i when i had my first child. How old my be when that child goes to college or has their own kids. And of course am i happy. Am i healthy. And what exactly do i do or not do to that makes me happy and healthy. So the idea here is just a trotta. Get to know your future self. Because when we spend time connecting with that person we do some reverse engineering and we start to ask our present self questions about how our present and our future can come together or meet somewhere in the middle along the way we start to ask questions like how is everything. I think i want going to fit. Or what does all this mean about what i need to be doing now. Or here's one of my favorite questions to ask yourself at any age. If i'm in a job or a relationship or a situation. I would like not to be in in five years. Than how much longer am i going to spend on so like i said many of these are tough questions but twenty years of doing this work has taught me. That twentysomethings aren't afraid of being asked the tough questions. What they're really afraid of is not being asked tough questions. And maybe that's because they've told the world that they're interested in having courageous conversations about race and class and politics and the environment and perhaps at any age one of the most courageous conversations. You can have is with your future self. Thank you so much meg that i know that your work is with people in their twenties young adults. But and you mentioned in your talk of this is something you can apply at any stage of your life and At any point it's not just advice you should use in in your twenties. Is that right. Oh yes i mean. I think our twenties is when we first start having having to sort of figure out. There's a future self out there. And i guess better think about that person because like school kinda does it for us has plot you know two or three years in advance so our twenties or when we first start to think across those horizons we get better at it time. And then in our thirties forties fifties. We have more built in connections to the future. Like maybe if you have kids you think. Hey i really want to be around when they graduate from college or whatever the case may be so it becomes a little bit more natural older that you get but it's always important. Have a couple in my practice right now. And they're actually having a conversation with their future relationship because in about five years or kids are going to be leaving for college and they wanna be sure they have a marriage they feel good about when the kids are gone Or if i think about myself. I'm fifty one so i'm having a conversation with my future self about. Hey you know what. I want to get out of the the years of my career. That are just ahead in my fifties. And you know time's running out. What is it. I wanna get done so i think we're we always need to be in conversation with future self. It's just something that's new and Usually quite difficult for twenty. Somethings so i guess. One thing i'm curious about is you know people have said okay i. I liked this idea of these questions. I want to ask myself these questions and they do that. And then what happens. Guess what are what are you recommend. People do next. What is the the way that they can sort of. Take this further To advance themselves in thinking. Yes so Again it depends on the goal or you know what what ended up happening between you and your future self in this conversation. But i think like most long form projects so i would suggest some you know pencil and paper you know. Do some math sort of sketch out some things just to start with and then as you go along you might realize other things are important to you on the line at you. Want to be sure that you get in there and ad in there and then i would figure out it depends on what it is but a scheduled. It works for you where you check in about your progress on you know. Hey i being true to myself and to my future. Self in terms of what i said. I was going to start prioritizing more. So maybe that check anna's once a month maybe it's every year on your ears. Maybe it's super a really kind of depends. But i do think i mean having this conversation one time. 'cause you heard my chat today and then dropping it as probably not gonna do a lot for you but if it's kind of the beginning of an ongoing conversation with yourself and you know like with any goal it's probably something we need to keep circling back around on of okay is that is this still what i want and how am i doing on this. Kinda creates accountability. And so for that. That is where i think some people find. I'm gonna tell a friend. I'm to tell matt pastor or i'm going you know write it in my journal or whatever it is for you to kinda say. This is a goal. That i'm gonna own and i'm going to keep coming back to it. Have some sort of part owner whether it even if that partner's yourself it sounds like your your future self trite right. We'll make thank you so much for for being with us today for your for your talk and for sharing So much wisdom around these questions in your twenties so much more Thank you thank you thank you. Yeah my pleasure. It was really fun. Hey ted talks daily listeners. i'm adam grant. I host another podcast from the ted audio collective. It's called worklife. And it's about the science of making work not suck next time overcoming insecurity. I have imposter syndrome and a lot of areas of my life. I feel like i'm tricking people. But that is me going. I'm so smart. i figured it out. I see through me feeling. Insecure has some benefits. Learn how to make it work for you. Find work live on apple podcasts. Spotify or wherever you listen.

80. From The Groudon Up

"What's up. Welcome on trading card game fans welcome to episode eighty special conditions. Podcasts were look for pok. Mon and collecting collide special conditions as part of the poem professor network and today is april twelfth. Two thousand twenty one one of your host adam tuttle and. I'm joined by. My co. host is always josh brown. What is up you not too much you know. Did you say episodes eighty episode. That's wild man that's insane. That's wicked wicked cool. It's wicked wicked red totally and i can't believe we done eighty episodes. That's believable. Actually but you know of enjoyed every single one of them seriously now. It's it's feels like we're kind of just like i don't even know how to explain it other than like we've been doing this for awhile. And it does not feel like eighty percents notice. Feels like episode like fifteen and also like we're just vibing now this point like we just get on. We talk like we have minimal notes like we just. We just make a show happen you know. Like maybe they're not like super lengthy your super detailed breakdowns of card index structures. Or anything like that. But like if you're listening to us you know that we're just having fun up here talking about pokemon cards. And if he expect anything else than We'll have a sad news for you on today's show we're going to discuss the players cup. Three in what's in the top four in each region because the regionals section of the the players got three has happened and it's concluded oh it really already. Well not just the region regional not oh worldwide. The next step is all the regions. Put together gotcha battle okay. Okay and then. We'll talk about our art of the week. This week is grout on okay. Route very excited card of the week is going to be from unbroken bonds. And then we'll get into our t. And comex opening at the end of the show is well. Yeah i'm ready ready. I'm always ready at all right. So give me one second while i grab my notes here. So in north america we have eternity. Max tempos yard deciduous by in pika rahm. Okay so we have a wide variety here. And i'm super excited because these are all really good players and these are all really dex. Okay well i mean i guess eternity. Eternity all four regions sure. They're halfway. there has to be here so andres. Gavaldon is playing eternity v. Necks zoo is playing. Tempos yard kevin kruger playing deciduous. By and it's more of like a straightforward decision it's not playing dobbs line it is playing zigzagging but not the obstacle in line itself okay and then These playing and then you have mikey. Fouche of the trash lynch podcast. He's playing peak rahm and he knows how to play this deck flawlessly. So i can. I can see. I mean the only thing that i would say to be slightly feared would be the deciduous matchup for for the crime but other than that should be okay. In europe there is to adp an eternity. It's an extra. Jill control piloted by toward reckless. So that is something to watch out. For and in latin america you have set a scorch pika rahm look metal eternity us and then the oceana you have to p karam's eternit tests and then like a fire box okay so noblesse cephlon but it's kind of like that that style of deck sure are any of these surprises or like kinda at feel like they all sound like the control is definitely out of left field okay and then the decision why in it's straightforward build is definitely out of the box to okay but everything else we've seen over and over and over again okay but they're doing well them yes so i had this one that's out of left field what what makes it good what makes it. Why is this working all of a sudden the extra joe control. Yeah so it's the the ability to not play against it to not know how to play against it okay. Aka the surprise factor. And so if you can't change your play style to beat this deck. They just kind of control your energy. They kind of control what you draw. It's really hard to to beat. Because then they just they just like put bosses orders in Lillies polka doll. You can't take prizes like it's just it's kind of ridiculous it's fun watching the players play against it and it's like how. How do you beat this deck. Right and So that's that's completely left field and that's why it's doing good and i think the decision is in the same boat where it's not something that you expect. You know you expect the six goon line and like you know them to try to go back and forth with those debt those cards to manip- manipulate the The game that way where you know offs obstacle in has like obstruct and he attacks and no basics po. Come on can hit him. And that's good. I like peak around okay but to situate just says no vis-a-vis remax is g exes. And that's pretty much the entire format. Okay any of these like would you play out of those two. Yeah probably be more apt to play the. I'm not skilled at all with control. And that's just me being honest okay. Do you want to learn how like it is something that's just like not to you or are you just not good at it because you haven't gave it a shot. I haven't given it a shot at it also doesn't seem like my play style. Okay like i just. I've never been into the whole steady as you go. Sure type style. I'm just that just doesn't feel like something. I'd i'd go four. Okay i respect it like you know what you what you like to do. So i appreciate that. Yeah if if i had to choose. I think or if i had to put money on it i would say probably eternit's or peak around has the The highest chance of making it. Okay but also like i can see top. Cut consisting of the exca- drill the peak from deciduous by an eternity like those four altogether. I could see okay interesting. So so what does this all mean in the grand scheme of things that will be the top. The top but sixteen. I'm doing math yet. For eight th yes. Yeah so that's top sixteen four. I believe it's next weekend. If you're following the stream they did give out a a code for the tc go for full art elder gos-. Yes i saw that. If you're if you're in the stream or around to get a just be on twitter really Somebody'll share it. But there's a code for a full art bosses orders so definitely definitely be on the lookout for that. 'cause i got my elder goss is that Skews me for having a dumb question. Is that a car that you could have already had or is it exclusive to this. Yeah you could have already had. Okay okay nothing really special about it aside from its Sure they're just giving to. I appreciate that. Yeah all right moving on. Let's let's crack pack real quick.

Nothing good and would that. We'll talk about something. Good ooh art of the week. Got grout on the continent pokemon. Okay okay and you. You know you know that. Josh loves chinese so i had to pull up the chinese okay. So so i've kinda got a mix. It's another four but really it's just two different styles. And i just wanted to kind of talk about real quick and then we'll get into the actual arts. That are like wicked. Yeah i was gonna ask you Last week if there is any shiny grew. John cards. And i wanted to be surprised. So i am pleasantly surprised to see to on this list adam. So the first step we have is ground star from ex delta species and this thing is like a powerhouse. The thing is it's like an e. x. e. xs were thing shurmur. It's jumping out of the card. So cool mean. I'm pretty sure. The xs are thing because it says but it it just pops out of the card like an like e. x. Would so it's it's just so cool looking. It's just ready to attack. it's coming at you. it's goo- it's reaching out to grab ya but it's it's that like golden mustard color. It's so it's so nice looking. And then following that up we have a call of legends shiny. Grout on like it ripping through the air coming at you. I was gonna say it's like klein. Yeah but yeah no. This is sick. I absolutely love the color of shiny grout on and both of these cards. Show it off beautifully. Yeah it's just that contrast of like a dark blue dark purple. I love gorgeous gorgeous. But for the real card of the art of the card. Sorry gotta get that right. One day a couple episodes me by one hundred. Yeah maybe all right. So the grout on from cosmic eclipse. This thing is pure power in. It's picture this thing is shooting aflame out of its mouth. It's got flames coming out of its stomach. Its arms or spread. It's got a nice kind of stormy blue sky behind it but it's like godzilla. Yeah burning down a city. What kind of reminds absolutely no relation. Well that we know of. And then the absolute stunner card is the ground on from celestial storm this thing is encased in flames magma fire lava whatever you wanna call it it's got it all around itself. It is angry clock wide open at you. Yeah it's just beautiful the color's just pop absolutely love. This ten at a ten would highly recommend. Yeah so socal. It's game stott game. Stop even did like a like a promo or they gave away like a legendary collection or legendary pokemon. So like one of these is like a stamp on. It doesn't say game stop says legendary collection does go sick It's a it's a sweet hartman. I like i said i love the lava i love just the ferocity behind it. It's it's It's it's hot as the kids would say it's ccc good cars man. I i knew gruden would probably have some some red cards Like i said. I'm impressed by the chinese. You found but like well i was gonna put an e. x. In here just because i think the fuller deserved it. Sure it's kind of like a free pass. The exes don't really easy. Yeah and it's like then. They had the agent tree. Like mega grou- don in like or was it no prime crowd on its primal grout on and it's like does that count. No some and those are sick cards too. So i i don't know there's just too many sick ground on cards. Sure this is. This is a polk addicts entry from emerald says grout on has appeared in mythology as the creator of the land it sleeps in magma underground and is said to make volcanoes erupt on awakening interesting man. This thing is angry. I can't imagine why coder who is wants to fight it. That's that's a good enough reason right there. If it wakes up coyotes like what's going on we need to put this thing back to sleep. Yeah yeah he's going to create another continent will have less area to swim in Fascinating well done adam. I picked the right ones. I think so too. And if i didn't please let me know. Oh yeah totally email. Shoot me a message somewhere. Adam always lows to be told that he did something wrong. Yes air sure in a kind way possible. Definitely at him is what i'm saying in the nicest way possible. Yeah yeah don't be mean about it but nobody ever media so we're good Adam you want to know which pokemon you're gonna be Next week that is all that. I'm thinking about perfect. Let's hit up the random. Pok mon generator and see what happens. The the the the Smash that button and our new random pokemon for next week's art of the week is okay I honestly didn't know that this was actually a one. I've never seen it's norv ever seen. Its name and i think it might be digital on This book on is drudge. Ed gone drew gone drug on trotta gun in the world. Is this thing adam. I've literally never heard of this book. One is this actually a book one or is that is a one does it look like additionally monitoring my crazy no it definitely looks like a digital okay but this is legitimate. Yeah that's actually hilarious. Yeah i don't. I don't know if there's too many juergen gun card. I know that they typically have like a rough skin ability okay or yeah or like a polka potty or something like that it looks. We're like how do i not know that this is an actual pokemon. It just hasn't come up. I think the last set that this this card was in at least in. My memory is like the dragon. Vol- do people like this poke among like is like i haven't thought about it so long. This is like a forgotten polka. No kidding. it looks like it's weird. It's it looks like it's blue and like a bright yellow chessy era. Dinosaur dragon has a lot of jagged. Sharp edges on it for reasons. I couldn't tell you long arms to make it look cool. I don't know if those are wings. Or what okay. We've got a lot of talk about next week. You got jeff so weird man. That's kinda ridiculous Okay should we take. Yeah i i'd say we need it or after After all that. I'm gonna take sipa som some issue. Oh yeah it's got beans in it but I don't think you're drinking the right thing. Adam brown water Definitely not drink. Okay we need to take a break in discussing it. Definitely we are back. Yes we are. I just had to explain to josh. That i was drinking coffee at almost one o'clock in the morning on my end. Yeah that's weird thing. And i'm also i don't like that you called it bean water. Well it is. It's a coffee. bean. Bean juice ruid. Yeah it's it's been juice. Okay okay. i'm more comfortable with that. Just your initial description dislike really threw me off. I was very confused. Also i don't know drinking coffee at one o'clock in the morning is the best idea for you but hey you know what adam yolo. My friends see apple juice in ensures that you have vivid dreams at night but coffee insures. That have nightmares is any of that. I think the apple juice thing. That's new information to me.

Charlotte they they made it so you could preorder them but had to pay for shipping. Okay so it was like six bucks for shipping is a hotness is coming from the chilling rains set There's the the two horses. I haven't played through certain shields. I don't know the exact names of them. But they they have calli racks writing that word and the water one is really good and there's a water supporter coming out of the set to that like allows you to attach an extra water so it's of like a water will but do we have like a car that like the casual collectors are gonna be gunning for Or does it matter. And this new blazer. Kin there's a new intel. Leon i i don't know exactly but basically all three of the legendary birds are in it. So that's the cash flow of and then you've got the alternate them and then the fuller said yeah and we have. The psychic horse is really good one because that one allows you to attach extra psychic energies. Sure so that that will be big. Yeah but that's good for people that are playing the collectors aren't gonna care too much but it's like it's like the collectors have the birds to go after and the players have the birds to go after. But there's tons of cards in the set like they just keep pumping out really playable cards. Yeah and i love to see it. That's good that they're catering to To to both audiences in the end that's really important but also also making it difficult for sure for sure And i feel like they're doing a really good job with re stocks. Are they In my opinion. I was able to walk into a barnes and nobles today and they had a whole shelf full of stuff including a stack of the tins for shining fates ochre as well as the three packs of battle styles. The single packs a battle styles and then like the mini tins. It's i. I did go into walmart in c. A stock there. Then i you know casually like to go to the toy section just to see sure and they had a bunch of the blister packs for the single packs but they all have the promos and like that was stock to like. Whoa this is cool. And they had some some. Ev evil tins which really cool to see. Not that i bought any of those but it was nice to be like. I'm going to buy the promos. Because i need those and just walk away. Felt really good. Sure i had zero urge to grab anymore now. Honestly is this Is this a sign of good results or did you just get lucky and happened to be there after they adjust put him out maybe a little bit of both okay but i i know for a fact that i haven't been going out in like hunting because it's like i just don't need more cards and i don't want to take them away from anybody. That needs them more than i do. Yeah to the point where i thought about putting a binder together just like to hand a game stop and say like you know if a kid walks in here in the like a man they have no pokemon cards like just let them go through the binder and like grab something that turned to a disaster quickly. Yeah unfortunately i. I know what your intentions are with that. But yeah but i want. The chargers are no drawers word. Hurry are waldo jars. Hard right or not a kid auto care. Yeah so anyways.

Blake Pavey on TikToks domination and what he likes and hates about the app

"On my name is blake. Patty and this is uncommon on common and uncommon clips off produced by a unique digital agency to around dot com to learn more. That's any you ain't l. E. dot com doc as a platform for talking about that earlier. Right the certain things that you can't like i remember a few months ago. I was just saying to someone that apart from the fact that there's all these conferences that they just released that is bringing them up to par with instagram. Are they actually announced last week to at take up world which was the big ad event. There's just certain things you cannot do on any other platform by but talk now. That can come down to editing options. I also think it comes down to the sake of the usa. I think like the niger of talk. It's got a bit of vine to it. So it's predominantly positive comedic whereas you look at something like instagram inscribed to me is about image and portraying image the the best possible image to people or as facebook and twitter is about just blurting out. What's in your head yet. And so take talk his gotten this rarefied spice of like eighties. The social media platform. Because like what is it. It's sort of like a combination of instagram reddit and twitter If that makes at a bit of this divine component as well why do you think take talk dominates over the other platforms. It's that i think there's just so many lies to i think You know the fact that it's just sorry accessible it just hooks you in stride a why that's probably the biggest they it just keeps you there on like legit. Didn't a slight like two dollars. A guy to like four thirty in the morning just scrolling through talk the whole not pretty much thought by on like two hours. Matt's four muhannad is dangerous. It's just the addiction factor. Just walked in because just the algorithm it. Cy we'd it. Just it knows what you want say yes. Kp that so yeah. I just try to limit. How much taller. I'm actually spending on there. They're just try to push my shit then deep on. Just yeah what it is but it's just like it's so addicting it's it's like a So i guess the algorithm is one component to it. I mean the top of content. You get fed on talk. That is the thing like from a point of view that done really well as they've used machine learning to just basically allow a boss to understand you as an individual and so like often the criticism i hear from people here having gotten into take talk is basically because they haven't gotten in the having hit that to wake mock you know how you need like a waco to for the hour to really work you out like they haven't gotten to that point which always find interesting but once it lends you. It's like every single video man is good. Everything is good like dow test a few videos that have got like ten lakhs of something to say with a clearly the testing and amongst holder people. But i don't know it's that algorithm is scary. Good it's inside like absolutely insane and died on. I really get into the soda. I don't really try to think about the like the technical aspects of it just because dr half any of it works. it's. I'm sorry like out of touch with it but i mean it's worked in five of the pasta is. I'm not complaining but it just seems to change all the time and just like adapt preempt anything so i think that's what stuck around facade along that line at such a dominant level. Why do you like to token than wide. Do you also convert what are you also conversely height about ticked off all while on actually mostly hightech talks like on a sleigh. Just sitting. the app is like gotten to a point where it's just like like on ahead to explain it but there's just like you go into some rabbit holes of take talk and it's just nothing but toxicity and just like it's like twitter and a lot of wise like you say one thing and paper will take that and just turn it into fifty other things that make you look like the biggest pace of shit and just takes away from your your normal message like it's just inside like a lot. That obey would sort of create more platform in like pretty much build my united the foundations of my career around it but at the same time i think it's actually it's doing a lot of Like i think it's doing a lot of hobson especially young kids. And i think we're going to look back in like thirty years on social media the why we get smoking back in the seventies and we're like like had the fuck do we'd let kids during this so often pretty much but But yeah. I think that just needs to bay like vineeta pu back a bit. 'cause it's just there's just so much division on take talk that i'm saying yeah it by because of the algorithm not just bake on the pace shit had a nurse who i am yet. It could be that you're doing political stuff and then add that somehow all actually most of that's on instagram. So i don't know if that's actually true. But i know you may like there was something recently that catch go. I think All has gives us shit. Like a heightened. Pay trotta and. I think that's probably the best example. Hotmail like paypal saw five seconds of someone's relationship and just stretched it and try to analyze it from every single angle and scrutinize these people to the brink side. Like yeah it's just it's such bullshit if nothing is on a par if something is not a hundred percent kosher and couldn't offend anyone you a band to be sure that people and that's the thing i say often is the top comment because although the top liked comment gets pushed up to the top in the comment section for those who aren't listening in oven fucking news talk but the first thing that i often see is like people in the comments near nate to chill out yet like that's a regular thing and it's often to do with like a kid or a dog or relationship or like a personal interaction and you're very you're very right in that aspect is you see five to fifteen seconds of something and then people extrapolate it to the entire life yet. Lie that catch. Vdi is legitimately the best example of it that of saying on take talk like a so this one v. i and it was because you can do obviously like three minute videos on knock down. It was a three minute video of her. Just analyzing the video with like every single angle and theory. And i'm like you so five seconds like why don't you just like like analyze this relationship from like every single angle just. It doesn't make sense pretty much and the comments which is the worst. That will like yeah. I knew something was wrong. Because the bob's for sucky thirteen like. Yeah yeah all the app like dark any. I'd also you know. This is another one. That took a chick. I remember night but a handles gary wind thought. She's very fucking funny. Shays i think i think in. I'm sophie griffin. Yeah she's siphoning funny. I've tried to pitch. A is nothing. But i still follow it to this Incredibly funny return on your hand like someone was watching. This is all social. Media i know is amplified onto the the example given was like a youtube interview with timothy timothy shalam and the guy was anxious in the interview and people like. Oh my god. I'm so sad that timothy's anxious persevere is like all timmy's fine like it'll be okay and she's just saying you This guy why. You calling him timmy. He's just a fucking to act up. Get over at relax. Aw that and like to go into like he's anxiety and all that sort of softie absolute plethora of trauma dumping on that at it. Pieces me off soy papers like they are might video ages ago that done somewhat can't anymore and i said khan remember what i said. I said something about something that happens at home in my life. That wasn't even a bad seeing it was just like an everyday occurrence that happens and people were like i. You show these like like previous layers. Yeah on like my parents with on pretty much pre good parents and they'll like well. It could be unrecognized. And i'm like on fawn might be trump put on talk gonna fuck in therapy. This is why the ad suck days days this verse to side that. Yeah it's true though. I really externalised a lot of shit on each other on social media. I had something recently where a posted something about a fellow walk friend so the cultural things in the great community that you deci all all the time right. Give you examples when you go into someone's house before you walk in the house. You're going to throwing coins into the house. I don't know why it's a dumb tradition. But it's a turkish when someone buys a house gets engaged. We'll get married. There's a joke and even when you're in a relationship my uncles and aunties done this to me for years. You gave him the comment. Babies went because in great families. Your you know people expect big great families right. And so i- commented on this mutual influences page cassese. She bought a house. And i said babies win and upon the lock. He's italian he gets the jug. And i go this barrage over damn about how i was like futility shiming this person i was like come on man and the thing that go to to be quiet was basically being culturally insensitive as the only way to to to to bring some reality back to this person. Not it's none of their business. Not that if the person has a problem say something. Stop externalizing your sheets on us. Yeah can head in. And i'm ennobling two thousand dollars on instagram stuff to deal with this shit. Yeah it's it's so crazy hale. Hail inciting people can get like on really i post some stuff about say f. and it's not my mind former contexts because i'm not to make that on i'm going to be the guy that but a lot of my fame buys no that i have say but ever told my post bent af all like mention it in a live or something like that people like actually have say after you. What would i fight a disease. It's just pay. We'll just extrapolate sorry much stuff that it's just it's insane and on it's just stop looking at comments in general because it just gets so mad about now just to play. Devil's advocate comment. Sections can also be really good like say some of the best bit that i get from friends sharing to talk so each other. It's just i get a video sent to me and the the comment that i send his comments check. The comments is so fucking good. That's why i feel that it's rettig 'cause the benefit of read it is the comment section. Yeah now i think it's a good balance like comments usually shit and it's just a successful ship but they're good. If fucking amazing people listening so fucking extend was.

Welcome to the show. Thank you richard. I'm really excited to be here with you today. I was looking through. You know what we reconnected was looking through old emails and we'd scandal this long time ago. Twenty seventeen and we had a flame flight that cropped up and we kinda lost touch and so it's glad glad that were reconnecting again so better late than never i guess right. What's right. it's so much has happened since then so times of things to share with you now. I'm excited to talk with you about this. Whole idea of communicating with their folks conflict resolution is big. Listening is big to me. It's hard though when we look at leadership. I think the hardest thing for me is. Is i have this ideal or i. I i do the work to recognize or become self aware that i there's areas i want to focus on and sometimes when i turn the volume up on that self awareness can get a little overwhelming. You know like like. There's so many things i want to fix rate and that can lead me lead me to inaction. I don't know if you've ever experienced that too. But you know sometimes. I you know i think doing the work of self awareness and turning up the volume and seeing can be overwhelming disheartening. Sometimes but what. What do you think when you hear that div experienced the same thing. You know what i mean. You're always in this kind of. I'm sure trying to constantly improve your coaching others to improve. But do you ever feel overwhelmed about. Gather so much things i need to fix. You know i have I can definitely relate to what you're saying over time. I think i have gotten a lot better at slowing myself down so that. I'm not feeling overwhelmed anytime. I feel overwhelmed. It's because of the thoughts that i'm having so what's going on in my head and it really helps me to either right out or type up the things that i'm thinking about that i want to do something about whether it's action items related to our business or my own behaviors that i want to improve. The one thing that we've learned over the years. I have especially learned is really. It's better to focus on one thing at a time. So what one thing. If i were to really work to improve that might have a ripple effect on other things. And i think that's a key to success for anyone interested in improving changing behavior be more effective leader parent. Person is looking at. What's one thing i could do. Better an increase it even just by one percent or five percent you know not trying to lay too much ourselves because some we start feeling guilty and other negative emotions right and the goal here is to get excited about making a positive step in the right direction towards something we want to become better at. Yeah that's the way. I kind of do it myself to if i find myself getting overwhelmed starting to look at things like I you know and look to me. I consider that a looking at it. The difference of looking at it through abundance or through lack in what. I look at through lack that i look all things. I don't have the things that i don't like and it seems overwhelming. It's like i gotta cross this grand canyon type chasm to get the other side and then i got if i look at it with abundance then. I'm reminding myself this. Kind of like compound interest rate if. I want to become a millionaire. I do it over time. You know if. I save a little bit of you. Know through compound interest it builds up over time and so in the in the moment that you're doing it it may not seem like you're making an impact but it's though it's just improving like you said one percent every single day will that adds up over time right and that's how that's what i do like. You said to remind myself when i get overwhelmed. Go ahead no you go ahead. We'll just thinking about when we set that goal. Let's say to get better at something another aspect that to me is so important is counting our winds and that means at the end of the day or at the end of the week. What are some of the things that i did. That i'm proud. Love and that reinforces the things i want to do instead of saying. Oh i forgot to do this. And i didn't do that. You know if we dwell in what made me think about that as your contrasting that whole abundance versus lack it's so important to build the sense of abundance by recognizing and giving ourselves credit when we do things well even. If it's a small thing to say. Hey i did remember to do that because we need to. Raise our awareness level to notice when we have an opportunity to uses specific skill or say something that we really want to say Instead of overlooking those times we didn't because you don't want to reinforce the negative to reinforce the behavior we want to follow an even writing an out is another way of imprinting that on the brain so it becomes a way of being conscious about it the next day the day after that the tiger. Pick piggybacking off what you said. It's there's a huge part of what. I consider the compassionate side of of leadership compassionate with yourself in forgiving of staff in. I don't. I know we don't do that enough and i know the people that i've coached. They don't do that enough. I got to remind myself that. Just dailies like okay. Look look at what you have done. of celebrate the small wins as you said and just realize that this is. This is a a a long-term marathon that something that you never. You never arrive. And i think once that's helped me to kind of embracing this mindset. I'm not chasing this arrival flag planting moment right. It's just as constant journey of improvement. You know and can look back over time. That i can. I can take a great deal of satisfaction of looking at the long winding path rate. Yes and another aspect of what you just said this compassion to self one of the important things. I've discovered that's relevant to this. Whole conversation is the fact that if i am feeling impatient or irritated with another person i learned to step back and look at what is going on inside of me because it's always about something in me that causes me to feel annoyed irritated frustrated with someone else. And this whole thing of self compassion. Richard you know in the last few years especially. I've just come to appreciate how critical that is because if we can't have that with ourselves it's really hard to have it with someone else. We have these standards sometimes for ourselves that we expect ourselves to live up to and when we fall short we don't always look at ourselves and get irritated with ourselves. We look outside right. Look to blame someone else instead of ourselves and has been such an important trigger for me. That happened to me in the last couple of weeks more than once where i was feeling this irritation in my mind in thoughts were just starting to run off in the non stop. This is not about that person. This is that you what's going on right now. It's caused you not tolerate that. What they're doing and that is huge to have that level of self awareness. That then can slow me down and totally changed the way. I have a conversation with that person. Yeah that's really critical. And i'm with you to something. That's really of the last five years particularly the last decade but get the the self awareness piece is so huge and i used to think leadership was so external like i used to think it was all about motivating the masses motivating the troops. Follow me. Boys were attacking the sale. And all this other stuff. And i gotta be the composed charismatic forced to to drive this inspiration but man it is almost ninety percent of not one hundred percent internal like if you get the internal state right if you can get your head right. Your heart right. Which is constant. it's like it's. It's almost a second by second awareness right. Because you can't go from you can go through all of cycles of being a victim to persecutor to well realize that and then realize okay. I gotta just like you said this person's driving me wait. It's not about them. It's about me you can do that. In a matter of seconds right and then go right back to after being positive and go right back into the drama side of it again. It's just yeah. But i think the wariness piece is so critical and when you realise whatever those trigger points are like a awakened can be almost daunting of like when i started listening to the limiting beliefs. The negative self. Talk like hell subconscious. That was and when i turn up the volume. I was like wow i cannot believe i'm saying these things right. It's the same thing with the trigger points. Feeling that irradiation or that anger frustration. Whatever it is you can in that moment recognizing get yourself to a whoa. Wait a second pause point choice point. That's made your your well over halfway there. You're eighty percent there in my opinion and now it's like the choice. How do i respond to this asking questions like how responded this way. What are we trying to accomplish here. What's the outcome. That i'm trying to achieve those are leadership questions. That's what leaders do right. They recognize those trigger points. One thing i heard something that really helped me with that in that same vein is Can't remember where. I heard this where someone said behind every complaint. There's a commitment and so like if you hearing somebody complaining you know or in particular. It's coming at you and you. Can you know it's easy. Kinda dig in your heels. You know defend but if you can find and even doing it yourself but the forgiveness peace if you can find a way why complaining about what am i talking about. There's a commitment there right. And i think that the ican find out what that commitment is that leads to. I think a better solution. A better outcome. What do you think when you say that you know that is so interesting. I had never thought of it that way. And yet what i what another c word that comes to mind is the commitment is care. The person wouldn't be bringing this up as plane to our concern if there wasn't some caring about what's going on right either the outcome that happened or the way something was done. I think that there's a lot of truth to that. Is a reflect on it because otherwise they would say nothing right right. It's like i don't care enough to bother you know it won't make any difference and so i think in the context of what we've just been talking about if you look at someone bringing any kind of negative. Let's call it under an umbrella of negative information whether it's about you or something that's been done in your team or department if we look at it as simply a gift yes it at and take a neutral stance with it in our minds of. Oh here's something. I didn't know. Well what can i learn from this. And so to have that curiosity instead of defensiveness justification explaining and all of that is only going to have the effect of putting the other person off. Yeah because it's gonna look like you're trying to you know be right and then be wrong and if you're really wanting to encourage openness in communication than that mindset of everyone has information to share with me that i need to hear and so i don't want to dismiss it out of hand or minimize it or reject because of my history with this person to stay fresh and curious sets a whole different tone and really invites the other person to be honest with you and not hold back because you can only make improvements when you know when you don't have those blind spots right i like how you phrased that about it and i agree with you looking at it as a gift you know kind of that mindset of like hey this person cares if they wouldn't be complaining and may even if the director that you and i think that's where the work that's where leadership really gets hard. It's particularly aimed at you. This complaint is aimed at you man. If you can sit there remove yourself from that situation and trotta put themselves and their situation happen. You know this person thinks i'm a jerk instead of digging in going. Why did they see me as a jerk. Maybe they got a valid point. Maybe they don't but if you can at least just see why they're committed to this complaint and and get to that commitment get to what they're really cared about man that really man now. Now you're really going down a path. That what i consider you know transformative leadership in my opinion well aspects of you know getting at what's behind someone says one is to ask questions and that prevents you from feeling like. Oh i need to jump in and state something in saying wow. I didn't realize the impact of what i had said. Could you tell me more about that. How did you feel when. I said that what what thoughts were going through your mind. What did you notice about other people in the room if that was in a group setting just to invite them to let the end just asking those questions as a way of encouraging people to open up and then the other aspect of that is tone of voice because if you say it with a sarcastic or threatening or defensive tone they're going to shut down in other words what do you think that. Or what makes you think that are. Why would you say that you know that just pushes people away but instead to just have relaxed body language that you send to the person if you're face to face and then your tone of voice is calm and curious just because you put yourself in the state of. I wanna be a learner here. I'm interested in growing and learning and even being overt about that with the other person. And saying you know this sounds like an opportunity for me to learn something and maybe do something different. So i would really appreciate. You're telling me more about what was going on with you in this situation. You know so that they don't feel threatened. Sure there's so much power in those open questions. One thing. I've learned as i've learned how to become a better coach. And just the power in that composure. That you're talking about and then asking those open ended questions. The who what where when why. Wow tell me more why. Why why would you you know. What were you feeling or why did you feel that way. How could i improve. do you think know. I've got a lot of mileage out of that particular. We've been doing feedback sessions like. Well how how can. I become instead of asking them in other words. What am i doing great you know. What am i not doing. So great you know in particular person reports to me. They're not going to be that open and honest. But if i if i show some vulnerability and say you know i'm really working on becoming a better leader. Here's some things up doing. How do you think can become a better leader. How can i you know. What do you think. There's some things i can do. I've got another way to question that. Love that question than someone. The in this goes back to this focus that we were talking about earlier. What's one thing i could do better to. That would improve the way you experience working here or that would help you get more done in your job. What's one thing you would like to see me do differently or better to make your life here you know nor a more rewarding however whatever phrase make sense to you but asking somebody to only mention one is helpful because then you can you can focus and they can focus because there's always one thing that they wish somebody were doing you know differently. Better stop whatever but to frame it as to make your experience more rewarding or allow you to be more productive because there are so many times we do things to get in the way of other people in their work. It may be something simple like interrupting them. You know your every time you get thought you you text me or you ping and and it breaks the flow of my work so you know just little things that we sometimes right to ask that richard. Because we're afraid they're going to mention some huge flaw. Some really big thing that we do often is just a small thing. That would be very easy for us to change if we only knew just awareness. How many times have we. I mean think about your personal life in the professional life of working with someone and and the thing or the behavior or whatever that you trying to point out. They just weren't even aware of it right. They didn't know they were being that way. That's a lot of it. You know a lot of the stuff that we're kind of skirting around the edges. You know i mentioned this a lot of stuff we're talking about is is stuff the tenure book that you wrote with the your colleague. Dennis coats This connect with your team. Mastering the top ten communication skills. And you know it's kind of good segue because one of the things you have ten basically relationship building skills in your book that a great and what's great about this book. It's thinks that we when you read it and that's to me that's always a mark of a great leadership book. Early ship is like. Oh yeah. I know that it's like things you know right. And that's what's so great about leadership leadership so easy to understand you know. There's there's no magic bullet. These are just traits that just kind of exist since the dawn of time. But it's always good when you read a book. And when i get them. Oh yeah why know that right. But it's like you kinda. It's good to get reminded because even though you say you know it you don't know it. Does that make sense. It's like he does. And the distinction. I would make is between knowing in doing you. Know when people say oh. I've heard that before already know that. Yeah but are you actually doing it. Implementing that when you interact with other people and often. They aren't and so it's i think that's where the rubber meets. The road is Looking at in evaluating as you read a book where yeah. These concepts are brand new. We've heard about them. Listening in giving and receiving feedback. Those are not concepts but what we wanted to do. In the book is kind of distill our thirty plus years each of working with folks and being aware of what's involved in communicating. Well and how can we break it down into bite size pieces where people can clearly see. Oh this is what that looks like. Yeah through giving step by step and also any giving sample dialogues to show. Here's what a good exchange. Here's what a not so good exchange might look like i love ya and as you open up in the the first part again the three things that you need to know which is a great way to begin the book but getting into the part to the ten relationship-building seals the first one. We were kind of talking about a lot of this stuff. This listening to understand for step or this for skill which is really foundational and something. I have real big and something that i've really become aware of over the last decade and trying to improve and look back at my kind of leadership journey and i'm like wow. I wasn't so much particular. Even in the marine corps wasn't which you would have thought i would have had that down but it was well after i got into the corporate arena and made a lot of mistakes missteps i really wasn't in this mindset of seeking to understand which is same thing to me is listening to understand i was always in this mindset this default mindset i guess of i guess lowering up is the best way you know i was always trying to like if you look if you just saw things my way everything would be great. I was always in this mine of trying to prove myself right. And it wasn't until i started seeking to understand this empathetic side. You know which got can't believe. I got there so late. It wasn't until my late thirties and early forties. And i started doing that. you know. And so. I spent this whole time from early. Twenties up into my forties of not really seeking to understand it was more about. No you're wrong i'm right. This is why this is the best way all with good intentions. It wasn't it wasn't ego or power. It was just that. I thought no i'm right. Maybe there's ego involved in that. I don't know but does that make sense. What do you think about what you say that. Yes yes yes. It's so true and the again there are a lot of see words coming out here. What i was thinking of was trying to be convincing versus being a compelling listener dean jackson one of the best marketers. I know of has made that distinction in terms of a marketing message. If you're trying to convince people of something you're pushing your ideas on them but if you're compelling what you're saying is drawing them to you because you've stated exactly what their payments what their need is and they see you as the person who can help them and so i think that translates directly into listening if we can let go of that need to be right to convince people of our position and instead adopt and i go back to that curiosity but it's a word that i've adopted over the last few years and it just makes a huge difference in my whole demeanor and attitude in a conversation Because it it. It states in implicitly learned from you yes not try to tell you in so this understanding of someone else listening to understand in order to you. Use the word empathy and that such an excellent word. We talk about that in the book. You know how to really help someone else. No you get them and the ad. I wish i could state strongly enough richard. Maybe if you could picture me standing on the table going lesson to this is really important. This idea of getting what someone else is saying whether you agree with them or not. But your ability to state back to them what you understood them to say and how they're feeling about. It is huge for building and strengthening relationships. It's it's amazing. The trust the deposits. You're making into your account with that person when you take the time to do that. And i think for many leaders the challenges feeling like. We're in a rush. You know we don't have time because this got that this and so some leaders actually send signals for the person to hurry up whether it's to interrupt them finish their sentences look at their watch or try to start doing something else that sends a message. You're not important right now. You know what you're saying is not as important as what i'm looking to do but if you see relationships as vital to your life as well as to getting the work done then taking that extra five minutes ten minutes whatever required to really be with that person fully present fully capture. What it is. they're trying to express. I guarantee you. That has huge payoffs both immediate and long-term they will come to your defense in situations where there might be some conflicts and they will stand up for you because of how you have bonded with them and i. I don't know how to express that in a way that doesn't sound softer but it's so key to relationships to have someone trust you and the way you build that trust is to be present with them in a meaningful way. They were what halfway through the conversation. But i wanted to take the time to talk about my good friends. The sponsor here the special series at equity bank. Have you ever noticed that. Most business bankers seem to really understand. Just one thing. It's banking right and not a lot about business make sense since most banks were built generations ago and now they're often run by caretakers not business builders will. It's not the case here at equity bank. The bankers equity bank didn't inherit a bank generations ago. They built one of their own. Know that building something takes expertise vision and hard work. Over the past decade they've built one of the region's fastest-growing banks by working side by side with customers with entrepreneurs with leaders in communities all throughout kansas missouri. Arkansas and oklahoma recently equity bank was listed on the nasdaq exchange which gives him even greater capabilities. To take on those big deals that growing businesses need to keep on growing. So if you're tired of talking to bankers who've never really ran or owned or built a business. And i think you're going to be pleasantly surprised when you talk to my friends at equity bank. Thanks for listening to this show. Let's get back to the conversation. This unique and special series on leadership and entrepreneurship brought to you by my friends at equity said some really great things. They're just discount of swimming around what you said. I like the fact that this idea the this rush or that. We are in a in a hurry to do things. I yeah that that resonates with me. I find myself thinking like if one of my kids have come to me or my wife of come to me with the complaint or hit and there is the default state that i had to fix this situation that they're talking about and that's just the wrong way to look at it and it's like you got it just kind of like okay. Be present with them and just open up your curiosity and say hey what am i gonna learn the. Ill look a learning moment and in your book you talk about you know and this is where it gets difficult because we're usually hit with these things whether it's at work or at home and someone comes to hear these times that we need to listen and maybe it's a problem or conflict or something you know some issue that's resonating and sometimes it blindsides us because we're busy doing the students when we get hit with this kind of what is this and maybe that's where that rush comes in like i okay. Let's just get through this. So i can get back to what i was doing but yeah if you can take the time to listen and recognize those kind of disappointment frustration or anger that you feel from this kind of blindsided thing or this conversation or whatever it is that those are actual signals as you point out in your book as a listening moment right so use those kind of a blessing of like. Hey okay this is a trigger point. This self awareness is key because if you feel that frustration that anger that disappointment that irritation those are signals to okay now. It's time to listen. Take go to that that pause point that choice point and say how. Am i going to respond to this. While i'm just curious and be open and listen and that way you can get past the the barbs at might be thrown at you that if it becomes personal you know is is just get yourself in that proper frame of mind for listening and be curious. I don't know how you can get people to me is like how do you get people to understand the power of curiosity and listening. You know it's like hack yes. You can't make someone what you can do is role. Model it right That's a key thing for any leader is to be willing to practice this yourself because you just brought up a really key point if somebody comes to you in brings up something unexpected. The default response that you draw from is the one you've created as your habit and so if you're having is respond with defensiveness and justifying and everything else that's what you're gonna be tempted to jump into and out compare it richard to Let's say golf because the masters was just this past weekend when somebody's working with a golf coach to teach them how to putt differently or adjust their swing their art their default way of doing it the old way that they were doing it. And so what's gonna cost them to change. It is practice more practice. More practice and getting feedback along the way and so for those who've us and that's the challenge with any of these interpersonal skills. We don't come as a blank slate to the workplace. We have developed these habits of how we listen how we give receive feedback over the years. And that's our default and it's actually hard wired in the brain so if we want to adopt a different way of doing it we can't expect just one to decide and that's going to be how we are. We have to practice it over and over and over again so that that pathway becomes our superhighway not the old one and and that way when you are in a situation where you're faced with something unexpected. Your default is now the one you've been practicing and not the old one so you can remember to stop and pause and be curious not react negatively and to Welcome that and actually thank the person for bringing this to your attention. That's another thing we don't do often enough is actually. Thank someone for telling us about something. We didn't know. Yeah so many great things even to this first part of listing understand. But i love what you wrote down and we we can laying the groundwork for this of getting into that listening mindset again the curiosity the it's all to me is all curiosity. Empathy seeking to understand removing yourself. There's something to learn here. You know as you write your book. I care about this person's problems thoughts and feelings. Something is going on with them right now. And i want to know what it is surrounded than react negatively or assume you understand. I check what. I'm hearing so that just gets you in that proper framework to light in not even solving the problem for me. I think and i don't know if that's a. I know what. I went through marriage counselling long ago. That was a big thing in. This counselor told me Men and husbands are default for this right like we would have fixed the problem. You know my wife comes to me. And she's complaining about something and it may not even be about me about something and then i'm like okay. I gotta help solve this for her is such a mistake and if i could just seek to understand and just going to be a sounding board and listening and go into learning how to be a coach help tremendously of because when you're coaching and you write this in the book is like don't necessarily start offering expand your experience your advice your solution right and as a coach he never do that really because you kinda go to this mindset as a coach that my experience and how i solve. This problem is kind of irrelevant to this person right. You're there to attract you. Go in this with this belief that this person i'm sitting across from has all the tools necessary to solve this and so my job is to get them to see that and to extract. That in the way you do that is not by offering your solution. Your advice your experience. You do that by asking great questions and that's really what's in this. Listen to understand right is how do you ask those great questions. Like what did you mean. tell me more. How does that make you feel you know and be patient. Because they're they never get to the point and so you just gonna kinda sit there and you gotta help get to the point. What do you mean and sometimes just by saying. Tell me more that mean. Does that look like you know. I don't know what is an. Oh absolutely this is so funny. Another c word courage courage to just sit and and And listen and be open and shared a story of the book. Richard that is right along with what you were just saying with my daughter. This is more than twenty years ago now but it. It touched my heart so deeply. Because i taught listening for so many years and then one day. After she was babysitting for some neighbors she had a bad experience and she came home. Started telling me about it and i. It isn't just fathers and husbands by a apparent can do this. Because you want to keep your kid from experiencing pain. It comes from a motivation. That seem spear it. Robs them of certain developing life skills and so in this case. I jumped in after i heard her. Describe part of it and said oh well you should have done this and did you think about that. And she interrupted me and tried to finish. I'm jumping in with more solutions. And she finally said mom. I already solved this all. I wanted you to do is listen. Whoa that was like getting hit in the you know gut because i wasn't doing widow quote what i preach i. I know this skill but we don't always apply it in every situation so we're constantly learning. We never get to the end of what we can learn about how to be a an effective listener and that willingness to just take off that coaches had you know whatever problem-solver hat and just put on the listener hat and being present with and for them. That's what she needed that day. Yeah boy dropped by dropped that ball. The time brick is particularly my kids because a lot of again i go into that mode and i think it's just because i'm the dad and i have to really watch up particularly becoming teenagers more independent now and they come home with a high school drama stories and everything else and i'm just like you know i catch myself. Just kind of get impatient because instead of listening to them. I kinda exert my a life experience and like allah just you know. It's almost like become dismissive because unlike Yeah you know that kids in idiot. Don't the look there. You're not listening to me. I'm like yeah but they're nydia you don't need to be you know. Just don't listen just go on to and that's and it's like i'm kind of throwing my dad hat authority because i got fifty. Two years of of life stink on me and they got sixteen. you know. Full richard the chapter in the book on you know helping people learn from experience that is useful for for parents and really anyone in the workplace. And it's the idea of win. Something has happened. That didn't go the way someone hoped it would if they were disappointed or upset about some drama that happened at school or at work to get them to talk and process it and learn from that themselves then they become more resilient and more resourceful you know as they move into adulthood or in the workplace just operating in whatever the environment is but getting people to talk about what happened so that they're clear about the sequence of events and then how did they feel about what happened so you get the left and the right brain and then getting to look okay so if it was something that your child did you can say. So what do you think was behind. You're doing that. You're trying to get their motive. Why did you do that way. Or why do you think they said that or did that. So they try to just analyze from the other person's perspective and then so what was the outcome you know. Did you get the result you wanted. Or they ended up mad and not talking and so what what was behind that to try to process the whole thing so that you get to the point of saying okay so what might be a take away from this that you could use if you encounter this kind of situation again so that they learned from that experience. That's huge and you don't have to ask all those questions you know in the exactly that sequence but the idea is to get an understanding and so they can then do what they need to do to think through. What would make this happen better on another occasion. Taffer sure when. I when i ask those open at questions instead of just throwing the dismissive you know again. I learned from this. Try to see where they're at my experiences that mean anything for the most part you know i that it does but if i can sit there and ask open questions like you say it'd stated wow how did that make you feel. What was the outcome. What do you think he could do differently what he can do next time. You know. i've seen positive. Things happen when i asked those questions right. It's a whole different outcome. As opposed to just i'm hearing i here. My daughter's voice now. You're not listening to me and not paying attention right. And i wasn't right. And i'm not gonna richard those same questions. We can apply to ourselves when we have fallen. Short of something or situation turned out the way we not hoped it would And we had some role to play in it then to do that. Same kind of questions of so that we can let go of it too often that you've done this to. I know i'm not unique this way something goes wrong. Maybe we said something. We regretted or just didn't do something we would have preferred. We've done you mullet over in your mind. You're just critiquing yourself on an ongoing basis. You idiot or call yourself name. Whatever it's keeping you from moving forward to getting other things done because you've got this loop that keeps playing and so to let go of that and be able to handle another situation better to go through those same questions and write out your answers for yourself. It's amazing how that can then free you to move on because you've processed it and you've come up with a envisioned yourself handling it better in an another situation so you feel more equipped to respond appropriately whereas if we don't pause and take time to reflect and we just go go go go go then when we encounter that situation again. We don't have anything new to draw from to help us handle it better. Yeah you know. There's so much of what you said that we're the pause. I mean so much to me about leadership. If i really strip it down the simplicity it always starts with that pause point. It's like getting to the choice point because our natural default state is human beings is one of reaction. And that's how as a species we've survived. We had to. You know it's like here's a sabertooth tiger react you know either either run from it you fight it or you freeze what you do one of those three things and as we've that's how we survived and that is our default state and this up something i just kinda come come to accept just recently in the last five years is that well we look at how many people tell you or do i hear i hear from this show why i just i don't i don't do good at dealing with things zaidi. I'm always anxious always fearful. I don't know how to deal with things. I that comes up. That word anxiety comes up hall stink and time and in all have come to realize i'm like is it really in my point is is that society culture for whatever reason we're kind of taught that this level of anxiety is something to be ashamed of or that. It's abnormal and i'm like that's the default state is this is to be anxious because that's how we survive. And so what i'm saying is is that instead of trying to eliminate it. I think everybody's running around with some sort of anxiety. That's why we do all the stupid things that we do rate. And or even some of the great things. And that's my point. Is that instead of reacting to the anxiety. It's about harnessing the right things to be anxious about you. Know the things that are important to me. i'm anxious about not being able to pay my bills. Also that that us that and harness that to to to unleash your creativity to in your job or your entrepreneurial venture right you know you went out of our well if i could push back just a little bit. I was talking to this morning. Who used the word panic They are resellers of our product and they had this new client and she was saying we're kind of in panic mode about abc. And i said well. The first thing i'd like to share is it's not very helpful for you to feel panicky because it's harder to be creative mode when you're feeling negative emotions that cause your mind to start racing and i would say a similar thing could be said about anxiety. I know the context. You're talking about it in. But you know i've another thing i've learned over the last four or five years is art. Thoughts create a lot of our motions. And so if we can analyze our thoughts and a lot of times anxiety worry. They're dealing with situations in the future we haven't encountered yet and so were missing out on the present. And what's possible for us right now so if we can just you know. Relax a little bit and say yes. I'm having this thought. How environ katie is a great one for this. She has a site called the work. Dot com with great questions to inquire not judge but inquire about the thoughts. You have and it's this whole thing of how would i feel. How would i be. If i didn't have that thought right. What would my life be like and and so to move into that creative state like you're talking about to come up with solutions. I think it helps to frame some of our situations in a way. That frees up our mind to be more creative in playful in. That was a you know that word was kind of antithesis to me. How can be playful about this. It's a very serious situation. Talk to me about being playful. And yet i now understand the spirit behind that if we tell ourselves too seriously we can't be free to explore. Yeah i think. That's what i was trying to get at and i'm with you. One hundred percent is is. And that's what that's what i meant about saying. The harnessing the body is that just like we said it's it's it's the awareness piece. I'm not saying the anxiety is the rocket fuel quite the contrary right because it's a negative emotion but the awareness of the anxiety. Get you to the point to like. Okay wait a second get you pause point the choice point is i like to call right. What might an you could ask that question. What am i trying to do here. What is the outcome. I'm trying to do to me. That's the that's when the creativity comes forth in what everybody does so my point is like instead it. That's how you get rid of the. And i don't even know if that's right say because i think the the anxiety will in the worry might probably still be there in some element in that tension. But it's the right. One is what what am i trying. I guess what i was trying to say. Is that the zaidi. The awareness of it can if you become aware of it and realize that it's normal to feel it. The key is not to react to the anxiety. The reaction to the Perpetuates all the drama and the negative stuff that just keeps us all this cycle the awareness of the anxiety like. What am i trying to do here. What outcome do i want. What are we trying to achieve here. How do i suppose to respond to this. That gets that create a space. I guess is what i'm saying. Yeah so yes to add to that. It's this idea of not judging ourselves for that feeling. Yes and it's been so that gets in another downward spiral of why shouldn't be feeling anxious. I'm supposed to be feeling positive. And we judge ourselves. We go down right and to build on what you're saying. Is we acknowledge. Here's where i am. I'm feeling anxious right now. Yes now what's behind that. What thought of having that's causing that. How is that serving me. Because i realized you know. That's not really serving me and helping me right now. What could at this goes back again to that beginning. Discussion on focus. What one thing could i do right now. That would help me feel like i'm making progress so i don't face this undesirable situation down the road you know. Oh i'm worried. I can't pay my bills. Well what if. I pay my bills. What's one they could do. That would make it more likely that i could pay my bills and that puts your mind in a different frame. Now you're searching creatively for solutions instead of wallowing in that and i don't mean wallowing in a judgmental way. Were we spin our wheel so often we spend this. I'm on thoughts and feelings. That just do not help us move forward. I love what you said. That's exactly and that's what. I was trying to your. Take away so much better than i was doing. That's exactly what my point about the instead of kind of fretting or looking at ourselves like i shouldn't be feeling anxious i guess i'm saying no. Just stop and listen. What the complaint the commitment behind the complaint like. Wh why. Why are you making this. What can i do hear the example. Like a simple example. I look at my house. There's fifteen projects that. I wanna do need to fix right that i wanna do. They make anxious. Because i not fixing my see the deteriorating fence behind the pasture and i'm thinking in terms of fifteen of these things like how do i can't afford fifteen at once but i wanna do this. My my wife doesn't like the way this fence looks this and that and so instead of what do i do. I reacted anxiety in that reaction. It means okay. Well i'm going. Go do something else. I'm gonna go. Binge watch netflix. Have just forget about the fence right. That's a reaction to the right to make things go away while instead of like. Why is this fence important to me. Why why do. I want to get it fixed. Well because it'll look better do for resale and we can sit in our backyard. Enjoy whatever you can come up with the list of reasons why the fences important to me and then just be just even though the anxieties. I don't how gonna pay for this. I don't know yet. But i know this is important to me. I mean i know. I got my savings but i don't. That's what makes me anxious. I don't want to take chunk out of my savings. And why but if you just take a baby step and you just go well. Let's get some bids on this. Let's just call a guy. Let's call us get three or four bids to see what to do to fix the fence. And then maybe you find out. That's a baby. Step right you don't you don't still know how you're gonna pay for it but maybe why you're getting those bids one of the guys offers like hey i can. It's maybe it's not as much as you thought i was going to be. Maybe you're going to get Maybe he offers a twelve month. Interest free payment plan. And then you're like oh why don't have to dip into my savings now so my point is to your point. Piggyback on what you're saying. It's asking what can i do well. I just took a baby step. When i got a subcontractor and that got me a little bit closer now that that doing that baby step and kind of working through that anxiety. Maybe it's a break now gonna breakthrough. Oh twelve months no interest. I can afford. That doesn't really affect my cash. I don't have to dip into my savings now. I solve the problem right. Does that make sense. Those kind of a example of course network but it's a perfect example of the fact that many of us get overwhelmed because we have this list of things to be done whether it's at work or at home and we escape like you were saying we avoid all of them instead of again focusing on okay. So which one project will. I give my attention to now. And what is one. Step that i could take towards realizing that project. So it's breaking it down into small units so of course it's easy. I can do that. I can make that phone call or two phone calls. It's it's really a way of looking at. How can i Creatively you know deal with any situation. That i'm i'm encountering right now are faced with and you know in your example. They're sitting down with your wife and going over that list and saying which one do you think would make the biggest impact on our happiness on how we are enjoying our life which one of these so that together you're deciding and then that is instilling more energy in getting that particular one done and i think that's true at work to when we've got multiple projects and they all seem equally important. The leader doesn't have to sit down and say i'm the one and feel the pressure to make that choice. They can be collaborative whether it's peers or direct reports or combination of people that could give input to weigh in so it doesn't feel overwhelming. It feels like this is a shared responsibility in that makes a whole difference in the energy that brought to the project the outcomes defined to your point that out kowit like sitting down in the example you gave sitting out with the wife and okay these fifteen things which one is the most important right. Now what does it do. What does that look like. You're defining what success looks like what the outcome looks like. And when you define that and the outcome you got clarity to linemen around. That outcompete gives you rocket fuel passion to take a step as opposed to being anxious over all of it. You don't do anything. And then and then you forget about it for a while as i go play net watch netflix's or play the playstation or whatever you know the rears its head again when you walked back in the backyard and see you dilapidated fence. It's kind of so that other word clarity another seaward but you know that's a key aspect of getting rid. The overwhelm is what. Can i do to get greater clarity about my priorities here and that can read something you just take time yourself to do or you sit down with the others that can help. Give input who are affected by whatever decision you make right well. I'm looking at the clock. Can you believe for an hour meredith. Can you believe it. Time flies when you're having fun and talking to you. Richard is so much fun. I have to say. Your podcast is one of my favorites because of the way that you interact with your guests. You've active engaged participants. You know you don't have this list of the same questions you ask everyone. So it's very authentic conversation. And i know that's one of your core values and you just illustrate it so well on the way you conduct your show. Well that's very kind of you to say that. I appreciate that and i knew this would be a fun conversation just based on interactions that we had outside of this podcast and it was just you know in your book You know we just barely scratched the surface on it but everything we've been talking about in this whole hour elements of it are in this book that there's nothing that we didn't talk about in this conversation. That isn't this book and so there's even more in this book that we talked about. Would you agree with that. I mean i think we hit on so many elements that you have at this book. Connect with your team. Mastering the top ten communication skills again. It's great how you break down just like you said that. The top ten relation skills listening to understand coach people to think for themselves guide learning from experience. Get by offering courage. Moment giving feedback accepting feedback. So we didn't even talk about that but resolving conflict It's a great great tool book. A great resource to have in your arsenal particularly when you're dealing with communication which i think is if you really stripped down all the problems that we have in life and the challenges that we have on the both personal professional it always comes down to communication and how we relate to each other however you relating and getting back to that choice point the pas point. What are we trying to do here. What's the outcome asking those questions of ourselves. Getting that internal state right. and then. That's going to help with the external state in helping these other. People were communicating with and doing the same thing in. This book has a lot of how to ask great questions. It's more listening and asking great questions to me. What the book is about what. That's what i got from the book. Great a great book so q. You is there anything. I was just going to say. We are out to help. Relieve a lot of the unnecessary pain that exists in the workplace around you know miscommunication and in fact my business partner. Denny coats has written a companion book to that called peer. Coaching made simple so that organizations could actually use both books for people to study the skills and then work with a partner to not just hold them accountable but offer support while they're making these changes because it isn't easy to change the way we perform a specific skill so we have been on a mission for a long time and now with these books. We feel like we've really got some tools that lots of people throughout the organization can use to connect better and get more done. You know be more productive too much. Time is wasted in drama unnecessary drama in the workplace in relationships that could easily be resolved if people had the right skills to be able to connect more effectively. Yeah it is a book about your right in that. That is the challenge that we have to deal with on a minute by minute. Basis is getting out of that drama cycle both with ourselves and with situations we find ourselves in and this is what this book is about right. How do i get from that and it starts with pas point like you said you know wait. What am i trying to do here. And once you start asking questions and you can get in that state. It's a great book. And i really appreciate you coming on the show to share. How can people connect with you and your partner and and get the book and all that. How can people reach out to you. Thank you well. I am on linked in a lot. And i'm also on facebook and twitter. And so if you go to. Our website grows strong leaders dot com slash free f r e e.

The Managing Partners Podcast

Ryan Kalamaya

"Hey there i'm kevin daisy and i'm eric olson. You're listening to the managing partners. Podcast where we interview tob lawyers about how they're growing their firms. All right we are live. What's up everybody on lincoln and youtube. We're live for another live recording of the parts. Podcast on join for a special guest today. Out of colorado ryan welcome to the show. Thanks for coming on. Thanks for having kevin. So let's jump right into it. Tell us a little bit about yourself. A little personal. I know some of your background already and tie that into how you got started your firm and what you guys focused on. Yes so you. And i were talking before the show. The connection with virginia. I grew up in in on the front ranging. Colorado wanted to play baseball when to be a professional baseball player ended up at university of virginia on a baseball scholarship and then ultimately came back home. I realized very quickly. When i was playing like mark texeira and some of these other guys that i was pretty mediocre baseball player and so i ended up coming back home to colorado and An attorney up in Aspen colorado and we have several offices throughout the mountain region. We just opened office in denver boulder. And it's been quite a journey. I didn't expect when i left home. They get closer to you in virginia to be here Where i am now. But that's That's life right. Well you know we're virtual now so you never run into. I really enjoy having guests from different areas in learning more about that. But it's always really cool to when you know know you have some connection or no. You've been somewhere they've been or or whatever so yeah cool to see that. You spend some time virginia I can see why you love it there. You know we all love it here too. So but i'm saying. I was just up at the university of virginia. I think last weekend so a go hokies though much ha for everyone tune in to. Don't forget to ask me questions if you have a question for ryan about some of the series covers or anything at hollywood's is business so we'll get into some more of that too ryan more about your firm just quickly this hidden and then you cover quite a few different practice areas but what he got specialized in. What's what are you doing for. So i always introduce myself as the lawyer that you never want to call because i deal by firm deals with personal disputes. So people are is. You're you're usually looking at going to jail. They're her or they're going through a divorce so we do criminal defense and personal injury and divorce We started out in based primarily in mountain resort communities. My partner amy us actually went through a divorce herself fairly recently so she's moved back to denver where she is originally from and that was one of the reasons that we you know Opened an office there. I'd previously had partnered up with two guys When i left my firm where kind of cut my teeth and learned how to practice law you know private practice in those two guys were doing. Hoa real estate transactional work and it just wasn't a good fit. There was no real business synergy so we specialize in personal disputes. And that's worked out well for us because you know the firms up here. They're doing real estate. Real estate's a huge driver of In the mountains in so the civil litigation the construction disputes those sorts of things. We don't play in that sandbox which is a great referral opportunity. We send those that work out. And then in turn were kind of the go-to for The nitty gritty or the down and dirty work that we do. Okay excellent Well good you know where you wanna be. You're kind of saying your lane and you know that's a great thing to have. I definitely see a lot of firms where they do everything. And i i could see. Maybe as you grow you bring in a certain partner. And they have a certain ex- additional skill or of a different practice area but it seems like a lot of firms bolt on as much as they can. Yeah yeah for us. We learn through trial and error. I mean we. We took on a big personal injury case. And we're working on a contingent fee basis putting in you know sixty thousand dollars in in experts That we may or may not collect in my partners that we're doing real estate transactions. They just it was completely foreign to them. Their risk. tolerance was not You know in that it. Just there wasn't a real good alignment and we're still good friends. We still send each other a work but we realized it just wasn't gonna be a good fit and so we there's been some good kind of relationship For better for worse for our clients because you know someone can pick up a criminal case dispute with their their significant other and that will kind of lead into a divorce so there's an overlap there and then the personal injury it's trial lawyers in so that is just the key to the common thread for for all of us Excellent it just kinda focused on what you want to be in. What's working for you and where you feel. You can do the best work. So a kudos on that took leading into some of you kinda hinted there was a few things with the. You know the personal stuff you deal with and people don't want to be making that call but what are some of the challenges. Your clients are really faced with before they make that call. You know what things are going. You know where they going through basically before they get that call emotionally. They're really reluctant. They don't want to call us in so the emotional getting over that emotional hurdle. In particular on the family law that divorces. I mean no one wants to go through a divorce right and no one wants to be her by Another ski or or another auto accident. But they're so it's getting our head around. Is this really happening to me in that that uncertainty. What do i do. I mean people. When they're arrested in their sitting in jail they they kind of will at that point. Say i need to call a lawyer. But it's not the emotional uncertainty and just grappling with what they're going through. That is probably the biggest issue and we re recognize that the and try to empathize with our clients and really hear their story in so we've set up various systems to ensure that that happens because everyone wants to tell us their story whether some of the emotional aspects are relevant to their case. Is you know the in. They just have to tell us that. And they want to be heard and feel supported in what is one of if not the most difficult period in their life. Yeah i mean. I could definitely see that in luckily for myself. I haven't had to go through that. But i could see a be very challenging and hard. Even who do you call. Who you trust Do you wanna tell anybody about the situation. You're in so fluently. And when people are dealing with their kids. I mean the most important thing for them. I don't know about you can. I've got a a little girl that turned seven yesterday and a four year old. I'm happily married but when your family is at risk and or you're looking at um an injury that's gonna change your life. You want to make sure that you have the best possible person to ensure that you don't go to jail or that you receive you know justice and compensation or to make sure that you're going to see your kids you know next week and and going forward very important not something you want to just see a billboard mila fleming call that guy you know there's gotta be some way. I'd learn a lot more and have a lot more validation. Before i would do that and i would probably exhaust my Friends and advisors for referrals as well so you got to back it up. Oh yeah. I have two kids myself happily and won't be calling anyone like you for that type of stuff but So this is a kind of a. I'll put one thing out of what you said to. Which i thought was interesting because of where you are as you mentioned skier so obviously being near the slopes and things like that. So that's something you guys see quite a bit of that. You actually market for absolutely. We are one of the only firms. We have offices as you're interviewing me here. There's a ski boot shop across the plaza. There is i'm at the base of aspen highlands And so you can see actually this. You know we've got skis or a picture of me. Heli skiing But we're at the base there's I see skiers out my window every single day in the winter infrequently. It's probably every other day. We see ambulance taken somebody off and so we are avid skiers. I ski during lunch. Break probably sixty eighty days in depending on the year kind of other issues. We have another office over an edwards which is right at the base of of beaver creek so we frequently take on big ski cases. We have one currently going on. It's been an aspen newspapers We know the ins and outs where cases in a where where ski accidents are currying. And we really do specialize in that because we we are scared ourselves and we know the the issues in denver you know i grew up on the range but to really understand and walk into jury to a courthouse and look the jury and talk about this run or you know someone consuming alcohol at a particular restaurant which can lead to accidents That's something that i think. We have a distinct competitive advantage over. Anyone we go up against us very interesting so i'm snowboarder myself so I don't. I don't get to go that often that the travel you know five hours to go but So i would have a cute advantage of that. And but that's just a matching you go out for a ski vacation and you've taken time off of work you're there with your family We have a client out in north carolina and he was in. He visited steamboat and his little five year. Old boy was just skiing along in a ski lesson and a out of control skier. Just clip them in ruined the family vacation. And you know these injuries can be very significant. When you're talking about people who sometimes are you know high or drunk and they hit somebody. 'cause they're going forty fifty miles an hour. You can cause some major damage in it can be life changing And so to kind of help people go through that You know for you You just imagine how that would feel. And so that is You know it is a pretty big part of our personal injury practice. I mean that's terrible. I've seen people out of control or they don't know they're doing their dispute third his act stupid but Question with that just Is if you get hurt on their own and that trotta go after the resort were or is that even a case or is it something that kind of covered for. Yeah that's a great question. So on under the collar skier safety act. Generally speaking the resorts are pretty insulated from odd. Those claims there is a well known case. Over in vail where A young boy teenage boy uh slipped into an area that it was closed and he was killed in an avalanche and there was a claim that they tried to make against the ski resort and it didn't go forward so for us. We take cases where we know the identity of the other skier. There's also someone you know if you were snowboarding. Down at winner of aspen The you're just stop there or your skin long and someone clips you from behind that and we know like so. The ski patrol would stop Come in and take the name and then we have to make sure that the other person has homeowners insurance or owns a home or in aspen. And it's you know not uncommon for someone to be independently wealthy so but usually they claim against the homeowners insurance and But we we had recently. We had australian doctor that hit our client was just standing there. The doctor slipped on some ice in his travel. Insurance covered. it so you know we end up settling the case for four hundred thousand dollars And because the injuries were where significant so usually it's going after some sort of insurance carriages similar to having an auto insurance policy. It that's where the source of funds are coming from issues. And so i assume just like an auto accident. It's a lot to do with what happened on the scene. What people said. If i want hurt and i said hey i'm fine. I don't medical attention. And what would they all could be against me and things like that. I would assume a very similar absolutely. There's a a high profile case that we have where the other side said they. They weren't drinking and drinking can result in punitive damages When there is you know someone's partying and there they get out of control but the guy just left our client just laying there And just tried to run away and he's just denied responsibility. So you get any of these various issues. As who's the downhill skier at nights where you know us being avid skiers we have the akunin. We also have the familiarity to know where various You know people are located and how we can prove that someone is at at fault. Yeah that definitely helps versus if you were a bunch of lawyers Stuffy lawyers that were like we don't ski at all at the you buy everything so d- back or at sarah its backyard. That's awesome all right. Well let's get into some more interesting stuff but would your business and Instead of the press areas but a big question is how do you currently get clients so we the two main sources of where we get clients One or from referrals from other attorneys We get referrals from like. I said construction attorneys real estate attorneys Dot is kinda go to four in particular in aspen and and county for criminal cases. family matters. There'll be some overlap with some of the firms that have Domestic practices but there's frequently conflicts of interest so other domestic attorneys will refer to us and then we also have a podcast very active. Our our firm is very active on social media So we're providing content but the you know the main driver for The podcast is going to be divorced. Altitude which is our podcast on in colorado We do get you know content or referrals based on that because we're the only family law firm that does a podcast so that has been helpful for us and we've tried out different tactics with marketing google ads in the like. But we've really kind of honed in on The social media podcasting to augment our referral base. That's awesome it. Yeah we talked about that a little. Bit pre show I love talking about podcasts. While we're on a podcast it's Yeah anyone watching are tuning in now or later manage partner ya think about and i saw neil patel neil patel as you can google him but Huge there's a marketer and he says the recent of that there's billions of websites out there So yeah you have a website your firm website for my my agency but there's only there's not even barely millions. I think a podcast that you think about the difference in those those numbers. It's is pretty massive so still a huge opportunity for the podcasting market and to stand out and was a lawyer. My say well who's gonna listen to a podcast about the law or divorce. Whatever and that's the cool thing is niche and there are people looking for that and people trying to you know especially like a divorce. I think you probably there's some time leading up to it and there's a lot of research a research phase discovery phase. You don't even know if it's going to happen. You gonna do you know how you lead up to it so great what you guys are doing with that and courage anyone no matter what you do to start a podcast. It's going to help you get better at it. Gets you better at just speaking about what you do and I think it helps retain what we learn sounds. I'm talking about my business or what we've learned what we've done and then i talk about it and it helps me actually retain that and remember it more than if i just did it and had experienced so holidays several points there. I want the really resonated with me and that is that our podcast allows us to tell stories with our clients and their be various things that we will talk about So for example my partner is divorce or my my kids for example. The i'm not gonna be able to do in a the same kind of manner in a blog post or some sort of article that is going to be posted it also allows us to network with other professionals we bring in guests and we allows us an opportunity. Pre show kevin. You and i talked about Virginia beach in uva baseball That's that's a conversation that would not happen if we're just going over email or not in the same way we get the you know the ability to post on our youtube On our website and so in clients when they want to learn more about us they get a good idea because we do have video and we also do the audio but it creates this evergreen You know content that we can go to an existing client and say. Hey you know you. You asked about parental relocation Or a high acid divorce Those kinds of issues and we send them the little segment about that in it's really Helpful it makes us a lot more efficient. But at the same time i'm having to re to dive in and make sure i'm explaining it and it makes me a better lawyer because i'd go through the transcripts and i noticed the ums the various verbal tics that i have and so from a public speaking standpoint. It makes me better in particular because some of my trials. I'm still doing a webex. Were or zoom. So i have to make sure that my background and lighting and all those various things That really does matter You know in a in a judicial setting. I'm going to be working on with the podcast. Everything you gotta sit there and to agree with you You that connection Do you guys do it in video format as well or just audio we do so we posted on on youtube and then then we then we post it in the audio but we then we create a transcript so we get a transcript and we post on our website and that we found that i mean certainly you can create you can blah blah blah. A lot faster than typing. So when i'm speaking about child custody. Creating that content is in written form that i can then post on our website so we get to the back end. Seo in and i'm not an seo expert late Them we also leverage that we can send it out in a newsletter to family law attorneys where it's really technical So we just recently had saw a expert talk about breaking down a parenting evaluation or custody evaluation. That's really focused on other family lawyers so we send that out to them. It helps them and then also reminds them that you know so we stay top of mind for when they have a an issue that they can refer to us but then we have other client interviews people talking about going through divorce. It's not really going to matter too much to a divorce attorney because they've heard that story so many times but for other people going through divorce very helpful for them to feel like they're not alone so we have a separate email lists that will send out to our former clients again staying top of mind but then it's also there for existing clients or potential clients so the key takeaway there everyone. Listening brochure is repurpose. So exactly what ryan was just saying. Does something that we we practice heavily at. My firm original is repurposing so we used to write an article and spend a ton of time and put the article up and that would be it. We'd have been draw some people in an article about digital marketing or something but now man. We're going live right now. This'll be on youtube lincoln. This audio will go up on all the podcasts platforms of the video on our website. And you'll have your you know your own pages for you which will have a mission about you. Link to your website and the video. And then we can transcribe this. Become a blog article and then this'll be sliced up into a dozen social media Stories and post and the one topic about child custody you can have maybe five six social posts that just a piece of it and slice it up a little pieces that people can digest and so the the endless possibilities and it takes just as long as for you to talk which is very easy compared to if you said if i said hey ryan man write me a three page article in the next half hour on child custody and it works for us. I mean we. I mean we're not the nerdy people that just sit in an office in Stuff we interact with our clients were trial lawyer. So we're having to put on the appearances do matter so it was just. It's where a younger firm so for us it. I mean we're the only firm that's doing this right now in colorado so when people are trying to figure out whether or not they should hire us over somebody else it's something. They provides a distinct distinct advantage. So we're learning it's been a learning experience and your looking forward to continuing to Get better and better at it. Well which which is excellent and your early. So that's going to you know you're going to get better at it and you're gonna be established in another trying to keep up and they're going to be trying to implement the same thing and i think that's the problem too is that you'll see firms that'd be like well. Let's do exactly what they're doing versus like stepping back and saying. Hey let's be ourselves. Let's do what works for us. It could still be a podcast but you know what was different about them. You know what makes them different. And you'll see lawyers. That i'm just gonna get a motorcycle in a motorcycle accident lawyer. I want to show that. I ride a motorcycle even though they probably don't ever since you guys you really ski your something you really love to do and you do and you have experienced with an that happens to translate into your you know what you do in your expertise so and i think for us. There's two things one is we're we're we're experiencing off where we know what we're talking about. And but people will sometimes prejudge us because they're young but then once they hear us talk in an authoritative manner allows us to be a thought leader in that space. But also i mean especially in personal injury in were i mean for. All three of our practice has every you know lawyer wants to say you know. I've got a thousand years of collective experience. I'm going to fight for you. It's just that it's so for us. We're i mean every lawyer fights for their client. Like that's just how i is a starting point for us we are. Branding is more of the explorer. Brand arc tight. Where we're that kind of explorer adventuresome In that resonates with our client base so that patagonia the north face were that kind of random of a law firm in it helps us to connect with the right kind of client. Were not the best fit for every single client what we do really well with the clients that That you know we. We know that they're going to be a good fit for us. So we we have a good idea of who our ideal client is and that works in colorado. And where we where we're located it's not gonna work everywhere but we've really tried to tell that story our clients story as well as our own through our podcast and it just has worked like You know we can get better at. It's taken law. Thought behind that. Yeah you will. I love your brain by the way Check out your site and take that you and the fact that you have you know i like that you guys have videos for yourself and others because my well i'm gonna taught orion but never thought of ryan so i get with you and and make sure i know how say your name and all kinds of good stuff so it just allows you to build that connection before you actually make the call so for me. It was less important. Because i'm just having a guest but imagine if i was a potential customer client calling and i'm like oh let me watch video about ryan. Oh i feel like. I could talk to ryan and and have a conversation with him is other than the podcast Also accomplishes that. And how many times i've gotten a client call or perspective client call and say hey i've been following you guys for like two years. Been really wanting to work with you guys. And they're basically ready to go and we don't even have a clue who they are but they've they've watched our videos or they seen us on linked in or whatever and they've basically built this relationship that we don't we didn't really know about so. I'm just really interesting. How that works out. But i think that's that's really the cool factor when you can accomplish that kind of stuff and i think the podcast workout just for so kudos again for that. Thank you Maybe new another podcast about where to ski and Where i should go a- indeed. Yeah the i guess a couple of points on the podcast is. Did you know when you look at the demographics. The engagement is i. it's growing just rapidly. People would you get clubhouse or some of these other social platforms linked. Everyone's going audio. And there's a reason for that The other aspect is that people generally are fluent and that is a our ideal client base is the high end market so the podcast really resonates with our ideal client And that is one of the reasons that we've looked at that. We were were well known as one of the attack based law firms. And so we're kind of ahead of the curve in the podcast is just part of telling that story and showing our strategic You know initiatives at at play a hundred percent and there is some data out there to support that pot. Listen to podcast. Have a much higher income i forgot what the actual number but it's Yeah it's the right audiences people you want to be in front of. And so a and yeah everything's wanting either video or audio Pretty much exclusively. I got people in lincoln and they'll actually send like a video or recording instead of a message and i thought it was pretty unique. Like you're gonna play it because you don't know what it is until you play it and then it's like it could be like. Hey ryan's kevin you know you should come on my podcast instead of me sending you a message that says that you just ignore it so in one other aspect is i mean. A lot of our videos will put transcripts or captions. Someone they might be at work in the maybe taking a lunch break. And they're thinking about filing for divorce they don't want everyone else to know about it so we you know the we've got the captions they don't listen to it. They just look at me. You know moving my mouth and they get some idea of who i am.

Motorcyclist Hit By Car, a Murder Scene Birthday Cake, & More!

"Take that is in rhapsody by queen. One five kids route standby back because sixty five percent of the time that works good ball video free to check out. This is up one. Kgb dot com. I'm gonna explain for our friends who do not have access to it right now. What you're going to see this video. Have you ever been on a road of the freeway. Where all of a sudden you see motorcyclists are doing wheelies and stuff like that one time. Throw some hot dogging showboating. I've seen it a couple times more. Fifteen real popular replace moore anyway. This is going on. I don't know how many motorcyclists are in this group but one guy has a camera on his helmet. Have you seen this era now. Not yet have it ready when you want us watch roll it and you'll see out there hot dog and doing stuff and the video is shot by guys. Got a helmet on. And you see him repeatedly flipping a van driver. Who's behind him. He's flipping her off. We don't know why it pause there for a second. So he's flipping raw turns and flips off again and she's like ronald any part of this so she pulls over to the side of the road to go around these guys when they come to a stop light and he quickly maneuvers up right next to her and was that wants to engage further. He does he wants. He wants in her face and so he starts berating her. And she's like what the hell what is going on here. And the rest of his group moves in right behind her swarmed swarmed and. I don't know what the interaction is. That took place. The guy who took this video doesn't explain it and he doesn't show just shows him and his friends hot dogging flipping her off. She's like i'm getting out of here. He rolls up right next to her. I mean he weaves in and out of traffic roll up right next door and they exchange words god plant then he reaches over and punches her side view mirror down and so she mows him down he reaches over punch. Is her side view mirror down with his fist and then starts to accelerate away and she's like model thinks so and she takes him down. He's not hurt. He gets up right away he gets up right away and he immediately is asking if she's kidding and very clearly she's not my answer to that is no. She's not kidding. And the question on this video was issued justified. I think she could easily claim self defense. Why surrounded and scared by a bunch of motorcyclists just trying to get away and all of a sudden. He starts attacking her car. Yeah you and by the way. This video is posted by the motorcyclist who clearly feels that. He's the victim in this. None of his bad behavior deserved any sort of consequence. You can tell when she rolls up next this guy that she is not like. Hey i wanna speak to you. She's just like what is going on with you guys here. And so he punches. Her mirror benzoate out of shape. And then that's when she's like okay. Well you're going down and she takes them effort and talk about. Hey ops he hops right up gets right up. So he's not hurt could've been he's not he. They didn't yeah he could have. He bet he started out. None of that. And you're gonna sacred. He started man. He punched her car right. She should get one back. I mean if you're looking about nascar rules that's the way it right. There we go. There's your first analogy for the day coming right out of the box. Oh god a comparison doing is now an analogy is has to be as be as the see if you look it up in the dictionary. It doesn't say as bs or cs. It says a comparison might as well try to start a conga line and cathedral. You'd be doing me a real safer and you wouldn't get hurt. That's what henry used to tell. His wise with travel never stops offering to buy aspirin for two headed boy. Unique listening to this radio. She had some questions about a smooth as a bag of fingernails when he hit me up down to the floor. Like a piece of hardworking. Lend a shot of brand on winter night. Sorry about that. It was a mistake. That's what they told marie-antoinette by that time our head was forty feet down. The street was as quiet as drowsy caterpillar. and i had a chance to think. I don't even know then made vacuum trouble. Why a guy lying on the desk dripping like a broken in quelling. You trotta question. We left my office. I felt somebody to my stomach on stilts what was like chasing a spider with a bowling ball. There's face contorted frightened. Like a deer caught in a traffic jam. It wasn't anything i could do but sit on. My hands was like taking your needs to a nightclub. What was like trying to give those drops to a herd of elephants from one half hour episode of pat. Novak private eye. That's what it's like. Listening to franchise nonsense long way to go to catch up so anyway. Yeah get your money is is the lady justified. That was the question that was on it last night. Is the lady justified. What do you think emily. Donka bore yes or no answer. God this is so hard about it. Guess she he hits the mirror on her car she knocked him over and he could have actually physically been her he could. He could have nothing right now not happen but no i don't think he's justified on one hundred percent saying she's justified. I don't know what lawyer could lose. This one. surrounded by a bunch of motorcyclists. She's alone in her car. Feeling threatened by these guys and then he actually attacked her car. Show me show me what can lose that case in this day and age. Yeah i mean. I i hope she would win it but i feel like when you cut the weight that she she went after him harder. I know he started it but it was way more dangerous which she did the way he did. There's an old saying whereas all saying right come from you shoot. you shoot. Went off my bow. We're going to take you down Why wait around for them to get a second shot at. I mean it just seems like the last second he kind of was taken off. He was leaving her alone and then she went for. She fought back kind of they attacked us at pearl. Harbor get the analogies yara number. Our thought was not to get even with them. It was to end it right and she did she did she sure did absolutely go ahead chase. I know you've got some thoughts on this oh Two wrongs don't make a right. She could face an attempted murder charge. It's going to be a mess for all of them. Well he didn't file any charges. Nothin happened okay. No one was. You know even called the police or anything like that. What happened was this guy's like look what happened to me. I didn't do anything wrong. I was just riding my this idiot. Posted this to try and get sympathy. Put it on last night. I think there were like two thousand five hundred responses last night when i was watching this and forty two our website and you can see the whole exchange at one. Kgb dot com. It's about forty seconds long yami Supporters this guy got how many big zero a one well that journalism altered. I thought for sure people would be answering like you. And sarah did. What if what that have. Nothing zero nine thousand comments on it. Nine thousand nine thousand comments. None of them are supporting this guy. None of them don't look. I'm not giving him. This makes people hate motor. This attitude makes people hate motorcyclists when they do this kind of stuff because people who drive cars are perfect. Yes guy what are you saying. I'm not supporting him at all. I just was thinking that if it went far went to court she'd be more in the wrong more. Would you say if this is presented to you. You're the judge now and you got these. Two people now lawyers. Just these to the motorcyclist and the lady what you gonna do gotta find four one or the other. Yeah i know i. That's why i wish i knew. The context context these guys were hot dogging and this lady in the van apparently got in his way and messed up his hot dogging on the road and so they surrounded her and then he reached over during an altercation which he started in fact. He went out of his way totally. He went out of his way to catch up to this lady. She's like i'm moving on here. He's up right next to her engages. Her yells at her reaches out beats or car while his friends are sneaking up behind him even looks like someone reruns are one point her car. Jostles notice it. I didn't notice that look and see. Watch it and you'll see her car. Hops rear ended right before she looks behind. But anyway i mean. I definitely think this is the case where she can convince me that she was told. She felt attacked and scared for her. Life was trying to get out of there and you know knocked him over so she could flee could sold in that for sure. I'm not a hundred percent down on this. You know just looking at it quickly for like a hundred percent on this hundred percent. Yeah swayed hundred. Totally be swayed one of it. Was you in the car with coron. And that's your only way to protect. It's pronounced karen sorry about that. Hothouse domino randy. Both of your precious. Little karen was in the back seat. You're being hounded by these motorcyclists than i would be and then you mow down the bike and then you come to work and you tell us what happened and you know what we say bono. Sarah we might be on his side. What have you heard i. Would you feel if we weren't completely on your side on this thing attack my car with my current and they would have not gotten up as he's like i did see it hurt him.

There's something going on you know. Yeah never a day gets by there is going on. Today is red shoe day. You don't have a liner. You don't have any notes in front of you really putting you on the spot but i wanna see what Lady on the street thinks red shoe day is. It is the time for the community. Come together and help out the ronald mcdonald house at rady children's hospital where families can rest up and get a meal and catch a nap while their child is being treated at rady children's and so in the past we've had people around town that have stood out at street corners. A giant red shoes like ronald mcdonald wears to collect your money. But we're still in these kobe times a little bit so it's all virtual online this year and i'm sure there's a website. Well if that's all you can come see me for extra credit otherwise. I don't think you're going to point one percent. I failed very well. Would you agree with that. Willa did she do a good job. I think she did. A great job. Explained it perfectly say hi to my friend. Willa willa willa is your What are you like Ten seconds away from being a graduate from kosta canyon. June eleven congratulations. It's very exciting. In fact i saw some pictures of you and you're already modeling. Your new college sweatshirt. I think aren't you had not to the east coast. Yes i'm gonna small private school in south. Carolina called wofford college. I think that's great well. Congratulations congratulations on your graduation. I know it pat i i. I know it's been weird. I don't know what it's been like for students who've had to go to school through this pandemic but glad we're coming out of it and hopefully by the time you get into college things back to normal you get a little bit back to your normal life but so you've got personal firsthand experience with ronald mcdonald house to tell me about. Yeah so i have severe asthma and our primary immunodeficiency disorder Which basically means my immune system just doesn't really work So if you get if you get a cold does turn into something bad. Yeah normally it turns into bronchitis or pneumonia steroids. Long term antibiotic observed in the hospital also spent a lot of time at raise children and my family has spent a lot of time at the own mcdonald house with all of the things. You guys mentioned taking a nap getting back a shower and just some support. Well i'm in the hospital. Tell me about what happened when you had this. Severe asthma attack as i don't We've been lucky in my family. We dodged the asthma crisis here but we do have asthma on our show. We have people on the show here and they have kids. Who have asthma. Tell me what happened when you had this terrible attack. He just thinks they're gonna get get shortness of breath and extreme chest tightness. It kind of feels like you're breathing through a really little straw in and out And the only thing that really helped me when super severe is Going to the hospital and getting all of the like iv medication And then you have to be observed just to make sure that nothing happens but it's kinda scary. My fingers start to turn blue. And i just have to really work on calming myself down knowing that i'm gonna be okay and that there's people at the hospital that are going to help me. Are they turning bloop from your lack of oxygen. Yeah okay that would freak me out. I wouldn't be. I wouldn't be able to calm myself down. Good on you for being able to do that because i i'd flip so the those inhaler things like those prime eighteen missiles inhaler things just aren't strong enough when you're having one of those bad attacks. Yeah enormous that the super bad attack. When i also have an infection in my chest and my lungs so that's like it should double bad So then hailers help to try and prevent it and they help in really minor cases of an asthma attack. But when it's super bad there's just the inhalers don't really helped me. It must be awful not be able to breathe. Just an anxiety is what it's not good. No no good so you end up having to go offer rady children's hospital and so your parents chill and alan. They have experienced what the ronald mcdonald houses. Therefore it so that parents can grab the nap. Get the meal and then get back to your bedside and just focus on your recovery right. Yes it's super easy. It's right across the street and it was really nice when my family because we're local so we don't need to necessarily stay at their on donald house but to be able to pop over in the morning for breakfast and a shower before the doctors coming round and then to be able to get back to my room really quickly was really nice where my parents because they felt like they were close and still able to do everything for me but it also gave him a break from the constant justin just sitting in the hospital room especially useful for people who are bringing in their kids from out in the sticks from hours away. We're getting back and forth from home isn't as easy as jetting up dance. Anita's the really provides a useful service. Amazing i've met so many families that have moved all of their stuff to the ronald mcdonald house from hawaii and all other states across the united states Just to get their kids the care that they need. But it's really nice that they know they have somewhere to day mermaid right if there's a sport with water you're on the team right. Yeah that smart for someone who has breathing problems to be putting you in the water. I mean have you thought about growing gills or anything like that since the lungs aren't working some sort of adaptation. Well that would be nice actually. Swimming is one of the best sports he can do for. Asthma position. you are in the water. Makes it a lot easier to breath but it's been challenging time. This is something. I have to work through and but it's super fun. I wouldn't give anything. Who told you that exercise is good for someone who can't breathe. I think that's a bunch of crap. Frankly i know you personally. Arrange for every room at the ronald mcdonald house to have christmas tree every holiday. What's that all about. I do. I had throughout my years. Just being at radius. I've met a lot of Kids that are now. My friends and a lot of them have had to stay a the hospital or raitis over the holidays and not super difficult for anyone so i decided i would take it myself to relieve the families of some stress from holidays and so that they can focus on their kids. So i fundraise money to donate. I miss trees to every single room at Ronald mcdonald house over christmas. Just pants i'll have to worry about it. They have a christmas tree. It's all done for them and they can take on being by their kids side. So you're doing the same thing. The ronald mcdonald house does trying to just make things easier for families so that the only concern. They've got is the recovery and the healing of their child yet. Because it's hard enough wine on. Just do everything we can to help them. That's very nice i. I've interviewed a lot of kids who have spent time at ray children's hospital and they chase a future in medicine is going to happen to you. Yeah my plan is to go to college and study biology and then. I'm hoping to become a pediatric nurse in the future. So i can help kids like myself. One biology class in college and it was awful. So i hope you have a better experience and makes it was nothing left but radio classes at once. I realized biology wasn't gonna happen to chase a dream in radio. Well today being red shoe day what. Your wish is for everyone how they can participate in this red shoe normally as emily said we would have. Tv stars radio stars and everyone out on the street with actual giant red clown shoes. But we're not quite out of covid yet so it's virtual so. How would you want people to participate. You can donate online. There's a link on the ronald mcdonald house. Charities and san diego website and you can also add one two or three dollar donations to your order at any mcdonald. Oh that makes simple. Yeah duper easy. Everyone donate does it now.

The email the month last month was horrifying trying to block it out. This is going to be worse house. Email the month freight what happened on that one. I don't know i've really tried to black. What happened on the email. The money you got all upset worms didn't like that food moving inside your mouth right. This is just an email the week. Okay seemingly the mass. It's only quarter as bad. That's right dave. I love your show and we're both very effective lovers but you're probably better than me. Here's why a few months ago is at my girlfriend's house. Having a family dinner with her parents sharing pleasant time talking about school and all that kind of stuff after the dinner is over her parents went to sleep. And my girlfriend and i. We went to the living room to watch some movies. Well after a few minutes we started feeling hot and ended up epping on the couch. You know what. I mean dave i. What do i know these or something like that. Anyway while we're doing it. I started to feel a severe pain in my chest. I continued a few seconds. I ran out of breath after that. Everything was black. The next thing. I remember it's that i wake up. I start catching. My breath drowned then. I see my girlfriend crying while hugging her mom and her dad is hovering over me asking. If i'm alright. I died having sex with my girlfriend. I suffered a cardio respiratory attack and my girlfriend's father made me cpr and saved my life now. After a few days i went to the doctor and yet for a few moments of my life i was dead. Imagine how you will feel to watch your girlfriend's father's eyes after one effing ing his daughter in hill's college poll and then he cpr's meanwhile. I'm completely naked to save my life. Dave i owe that man more than i think. We're on good terms now and the terrifying fact that that happened a few months ago. It's like it never existed for my girlfriend's parents. Of course and now when i have sex i f- like a turtle whatever that means. I don't even know what that means for the fear of having another attack. Wow now imagine that this guy's waving around a boehner that just literally was in this guy's daughter just seconds ago and now he's on top of him mouth to mouth in that man should be mayor. Yes is a saint. You give that guy a crown would you. Cpr a guy who was doing your naked guy. You would road face-to-face weiner to weiner on of course in front of five hundred drunks who some jason good you could you mouth to mouth agai a naked waving around a boehner.

Read us very clean. True notch dodge. Do not have cleaner mouser. humans beat by shannon. It's one one k. Cagey been for the radio show is just a reading about knuckle cracking and they think they know the answer to why knuckles crack. They don't know oh they don't know they say they say the reason joint makes a popping or cracking sound is still not completely understood for a long time people attributed the noise to nitrogen bubbles either forming or collapsing and joint fluid others thought it came from movement of the ligaments but researchers watched knuckles while they're a crack using 'em i there were no bubbles to be found they found a cavity formed due to the negative pressure created when the joint was pulled a park quickly like a suction gun at thing but they still don't know they say the sound was made by a of the cavity but they could not explain the loudness of the sound. Then someone guessed that guessing all guessing that the sound was created by the partial collapse of the cavity review of the studies noted it takes twenty minutes for the cavity to fully collapse so that a new cabinet could be formed. This may be why after. You've crack your knuckles. You're not able to do it again right away like so many things you need a little. What's the what's the refractory periods right period david.

Bobby dickerson there in the dugout somehow got involved with ham and they started arguing. They had to be separated dada dada da not really though especially since the cubs completed a three game sweep with a six to one victory. Padres manager jayce tingler said. Let me be clear on this. We've got a passionate group and passion is a good thing. We'll move on and become closer because our infielder ignored assign and our players are fighting with coaches and everything.

The tesla roadster has. I don't know if it's truly been pre sailing for four years but i looked up the other day and if you want to order the tesla roadster which was a sweet looking little ride yeah a roadster generally means little race car. Okay yeah and they want five thousand dollars right now and then within ten days or thirty days you'll another forty thousand dollars okay. Then sooner or later you're going to have to top out at two hundred thousand dollars to get this electric tesla. have you heard. It's zero to sixty no. But i imagine it's stupid one second.

They said it was one point. Nine seconds. yeah. They've got it down to one one sec it's got. It goes two hundred and fifty miles an hour and has got over six hundred mile range which is impressive. That's damn impressive. Yeah but zero to sixty in one second. I don't think astronauts go that fast. I know i'm the one of the other tesla's works for them and he said just come test drive it. Just come see what it has. And i was too scared to test of how fast it went but we felt like we were in a coaster. Just the like the take off was so intense. Were what we're used to one right day. Have one of their sedans comes in a couple of different speeds and one of them is ludicrous. Is the brand name. That's what it is because it's stupid.

Cash we got pretty impressive. the boy or analogy bitcoin jarred. I saw someone add a question on reddit or something the other day. It's like you can only say three words you go back to your eighteen year old self and you can only say three words What would they be in. This guy had written apple amazon bitcoin. Yeah smart winner. He just wanted. Is bitcoin one word or two. It's one. I mean you get to invest in three things you get to go back in time and invest in three things three things. What are they going to be. He knocked it out of the park with those three eggs. Yeah i wish. I have gone in on starbucks. Qualcomm would have been a good spot to you. Think those are better than apple and amazon and bitcoin qualcomm. I think split four times or something you think is better than apple and amazon is the third time that i'll answer. Yes you think it's better because you would have gotten your money earlier. You'd have to wait five. Don't think you understand investing at all time value money. of course qualcomm was happening in the days. Yes and apple wasn't until later and sixty years from now or something like amazon wasn't until five eight years ago ten years ago you could have had your money with qualcomm in the nineties. Bright or you'd have to wait for the other to. Bitcoin would for like ten million times more money. I don't know that it's ten times. I it's probably more like ten trillion times. Let me guess you invested in neither one of these. I invested in none of those okay and as someone who did i could speak from experience. Yeah you didn't bring up. Bad investments are good ones. But they don't even compare to amazon or apple. He's working on he's working in. I've got i no. No i've got an answer to this. They don't even compare the payout. Doesn't even compare. If you're done qualcomm then you would have been able to take that money. You invested in qualcomm and then banner it up into apple amazon. We know about those because he didn't tell your eighteen year old self. That flimflam your wiggling. Now you're out of three that we gave you the three best ones and then you chose ones. That word is good and acted like that was a good answer. You chose less good ones not that. They're bad but they're not as strong. They're not the best you could come up with is we would have gotten our money sooner and would probably have made more of it for lice. You take no five thousand ten thousand put it in qualcomm then it splits four times and goes up to seven hundred eighty five bucks a share your making numbers making numbers up. Don't look at me like you're know you are. You're making things up now and if you're going to make stuff up. I wasn't eighteen in the early nineties. So i would be getting into qualcomm late with your advice. I was just pull the dirt. It over your okay come on numb skull. It was a nice one. It's not an all timer. You know who said qualcomm to my old you. You and the only one the rest of the world's apple amazon bitcoin. That's it you're the only one there was a time when you believe in invest gmc.

And then if you throw in a little bit of saltwater reminds me of the very first time i ever saw california in nineteen seventy six. When i first set foot out here and started my journey to where i am today so that that really gets me. Nostalgic you're listening to one of the most surreal conversations of my life. I'm talking about nostalgia with the actor who personifies some of my fondest. Eighties memories roblo. If your child of the eighties like me. rob is an icon. He was part of pretty much everything. I'm embarrassed to love about that. Decade use an abc. After school specials he started classic eighties moods like see almost fire and the outsiders a member of the infamous brat pack. Who was on the cover of team beat magazine week. After week he did all my teen girl adults from demi moore to winona ryder. He played the saxophone or at least i thought he did. Do you actually play the sax or is that just for the movie. I am a longtime actor. I can fake do almost anything. I can fake shoot a gun. I can fake repel. I can fake play the saxophone like no other and i fooled. Many a person with it. And let's not even get started on his hair used more hair mousse than any human being should ever use all. This goes to say that. Even though i was trying to be my smoothest professional podcast yell professor self when i chatted with rob i was finding it really hard to hold it together when the carpenters come on the radio. And you're like immediately next year. Grandpa driving is station wagon and your nine or eleven years old. It's it's awesome. It's magic time machine. You're literally in a time machine by love the the time machine point because you know in some sense you've created that time machine for other people you know even for me like just talking with you on the zoom call. I hear your voice. And i hear certain ways you express things in certain parts of your smile and i'm taking back to you know movies. I watched in grade school and with friends and fun times in college. And what does it feel like to be creating the time machine for other people. That is amazing. It makes me feel so good. It really does. Because i can put the shoe on the other foot so easily you know when i meet my heroes or whatever go hey man what that song you wrote. A played at my wedding to me hearing feedback like that at the end of the day. It's the real reason. I think that i became an actor and got into this. Business was to move people in and create memories for the memories. Are all you got. That's all you got. Rob is right here when we look back at our lives our memories are all we've got and reliving all those nostalgic moments often feels really fun but nostalgia can also cause pain. Research shows that if we're not careful are happiest. Memories have away of messing with our future wellbeing making downplay bad experiences or totally misremembered past which can set us up for some potentially damaging choices. So how can we experience the benefits of nostalgia in a way. That doesn't hurt our happiness. How can we relive are fond past memories. in a way that doesn't hurt our future. Selves minds are constantly telling us what to do to be happy. But what if our minds are wrong. What if our minds are lying to us leading us away from really make us happy. The good news is that understanding. The science of the mind can us all back in the right direction. You're listening to the happiness lap. With dr larry santos so full disclosure. I missed all do junkie. When i have a tough day at work. I re watch old movies or play. The classic songs that i loved in high school. So you can imagine my total glee. When i learned that. I share a fondness for all things old school with my eighties. Hearthrob rob lowe. I love nostalgia. I love that. I'm on this podcast right now. Because i'm very big on. The science shows that robin i are not alone here. Nostalgia is an incredibly common experience. In fact one study found that around eighty percent of participants reported feeling nostalgic. At least once a week if you were to look over my shoulder at night. When i'm going down a youtube wormhole it's all nostalgia. It's all history. Nostalgia related behind the scenes of seventies music. All that stuff like me. Rob loves thinking back to the songs of his youth and the concerts he enjoyed when he was young for him. A big one was seeing his idol. Bruce springsteen live for the first time one of the things. I remember that phrase time was going to see him at giant stadium the born in the usa tour type style. Rob's concert memories are also big different than many of ours stadiums full. It's just before showtime. And i walk in and people start noticing and saying hello wanting an autograph and next thing. I know the entire stadium chanting my name. I get really like embarrassed. But the good news is that led the springsteen people to get the hell out of the stadium and backstage. And that's how. I finally matt bruce. The same is true for his memories of eighties. Television rob also loves to get nostalgic about bad old school tv. I told him stories of high used to run off the school bus to catch my favorite afternoon shows rob's childhood. Tv watching stories are a bit more over the top than mine because rob wasn't just watching those abc afternoon specials. He was also starring in them. And i use that as an excuse to go up to the cutest girl in the school and kind of trotta chatter up and name was jennifer and one thing led to another and she invited me to come to her house and watch the after school special and she was like you know my dad's enacting so That'll be great. So i roll up to house to mansion in beverly hills for some of ever seen a mansion and i opened the door in its carey grant in a bathrobe and so we watch my little stupid after school special with cary grant and afterwards he was like you remind me son of a young warren beatty which i took a huge compliment as i heard more and more about rob's incredible stories. I realized that he might not be the best. Starting point for understanding the average person's connection between the stall joy and happiness. I love the eighty s. But i had obviously very very very unique seat at the eighties so to get a more scientific sense of why we thinking about the past. I decided to turn to someone else. I thought could help my friend and colleague philippe ateb regard. I'm an addict. Yes i love it. I relish that filling. The leap is an academic triple threat. He's a professor of psychology cognitive neuroscience and philosophy duke university full disclosure. There are times in which i feel. That was born the wrong time. I love nineteen twenties by love hats. I love dressing up nicely. Dino like chatting with virginia wall. I have a very misogynistic. Allow that but philippi isn't just a fan of nostalgia. He's also an academic expert on the topic the turn nostalgia was coined in the sixteen hundreds and he was originally considered a neurological commission which is very interesting because neurology. Psychiatry were well. There was no such thing as psychiatric back then but it was very clearly considered a condition of the body and it was thought to mainly affect army personnel with describe in germany and it was mostly thought off to affect swiss soldiers and there were also to bury interesting origin stories as to why people felt nostalgia one of them had to do with eardrum damage to the incessant clogging of the cowbells in switzerland. There were stories about atmospheric pressure and so on and so forth but he was always considered. A malady was considered an illness off the body mainly a neurological illness and also that it was associated with depression and anxiety lack of appetite He wasn't until much later where people have started to think that there might be something positive about austalia. It's kind of amazing that took hundreds of years for scholars to realize that nostalgia actually felt good but these days scientists are learning that the effects of this bittersweet emotion are often more sweet than bitter and fact psychologists have observed that thinking wistfully about the past can make us feel really good. We used memories justice. We use imagination to make us feel better now. So stanton is a very good way of going on a little mental occasion without leaving your home and when you cannot live your home. That's the best way you can do it right. One of the times that our brains especially seek out old memories is when we're feeling more alone than usual. There's been a lot of research making people feel kinda lonely isolated. Ed and stuff like that that tends to elicit a little bit more feelings of nostalgia so it looks as though it is when you're a negative situation that you're more likely to generate the sense of musalia if you've listened to other episodes of happiness lab you probably know that feeling socially connected an important condition for happiness but it's not just the right now. Social connection we get from seeing friends in the present that makes us happy research shows. We also get a happiness boost from merely thinking about pass social times especially if we're feeling lonely in the present as one scientific paper nicely put it. During nostalgic reverie the mind is peopled. Science has found another way that nostalgia can boost our wellbeing re experiencing the paths. Can help us feel better about how things went back. In the day which is important because let's face it our past selves were always our best selves passes didn't always make smarter choices. Something my eighties. Idle roblo knows all too well. Look there are people who live through the eighty s and there are people who lived through the eighty s if you've rep rob's memoir stories. I only tell my friends. You know that rob had some pretty rough times early in his career. And that's one of the reasons he personally loves nostalgia so much when we look back at some of the bad choices of our youth. We often do so with a bit more clarity than we had. When we were living through those events. And i don't think nostalgia is nostalgia without that underpin you know all and also looking back on anything. You have twenty twenty hindsight so if you're being stole gic and you're looking back implicit in. That is what would i have done differently. This redemptive lens through which we naturally view the past means that we remember. Even the worst events with a positive spin we recall the good parts and neglect the not-so-good or even embarrassing parts. It's like talking about the greatest beer pong game. You ever played against great. Did you vomit. Yeah i vomited but there was still great or like when we get back from the break. We'll look in more detail at why we tend to destroy the past so badly or paraphrase rob how it is that our brains get all the great beer pong of the past without any of the vomit when happiness lab returns. We'll see that. are rosie redemptive. You of the past stems from an unfortunate design feature of our minds. One that comes with a huge happiness cost that we don't often recognize. We'll learn that. What seems like a harmless rosie nostalgia can sometimes cause us to make bad decisions in the present the happiness lab will be back in a moment. It's the little things in life that bring so much joy for me. It's slipping into clean. Buttery soft sheets that i've washed with the laundry signature detergent and fabric conditioner.

There's nothing like being on a bike and suffering with people rejoicing with people. You know to me. It's real shared experience. This is lee thompson. A professor at the kellogg school of management at northwestern university. She's an expert on the ways that our memories can play tricks on us but lee is also a world champion cyclist. She took up the sport late in inlay encouraged by a very devoted teacher her fiance bob. You know he was Cyclist and my response was like any normal person's response doesn't ride a bike. Which is well. Anybody can ride a bike. Like what's the big deal. But then he said well. Do you know what it's like to go twenty five miles an hour on a bike and can you do that for an hour and a psych. Okay well is this a challenge or what in lee was up for that challenge. After she and bob got married they headed not for a beach vacation honeymoon. But for the san juan islands and day long grueling bike rides. I didn't know that my husband's secret plan was to get me to ride up mount constitution. If i would have read anything about that. I think i would have freaked myself out said. Are you kidding me. There's no way we're doing this but it was only when we were like a quarter of the way up that he said this is going to be a pretty serious climb but by that time i was already kind of one quarter into it. A painful bike ride that so steep. You don't even think you can finish it. That doesn't sound like most people's idea but good honeymoon but lee gets nostalgic. Whenever she thinks about it there was one time in my life where i could go back to. It would probably be that because it was just epoch. You know epoch fun. But i know enough is a psychologist in my own research to know that on any given day there was a son burn. There wasn't enough food. Somebody ran out of water so not every moment was glorious. We recognizes that our minds lie to us and one of our minds. Biggest misconceptions is that our recollections of the past are totally accurate. Our memories are pretty fallible. That seems like a judgy word. Our memories are not necessarily like a video recorder. Human memory doesn't have the hard drive space to videotape life in its entirety. So our brains. Play fast and loose with the footage. The first thing we do is delete most of the boring parts. The half hour of your vacation that you spent in traffic or the part where you had to wait for dinner to show up or the ten minutes you spent going through airport security. All those filler moments get dropped but dropping. Those boring bits means that our memories are skewed in a very systematic way. The past seems to have a higher ratio interesting moments too boring stuff then real life towards but that's not the only way. Our minds are biased. Our brains also don't like to recall the bad stuff the sunburns and the rainy beach days and lost luggage and so our brains cook. The data lee has argued that we simply tend to forget the parts of in event. That weren't positive for example. I know on my honeymoon. There was a day where both of us didn't wear sunscreen. And there're very very uncomfortable burns. I choose not to dwell on that. I choose not to make that the the most important aspect but anybody who's had a pretty bad sunburn knows that can be a deal breaker as far as your ability to enjoy the rest of the vacation. Our minds are also wannabe movie directors. They really like a good story. The kind that has a happy ending and that means that our unconsciously rewrite past events so that they see more entertaining that sunset becomes even more beautiful. That fish we caught becomes not just reasonably sized but really really huge. That beer pong game becomes more fun in less vomit built and when we do manage to remember those annoying moments they somehow magically transformed into life lessons that provide a nice narrative arc so what was an absolute disaster trip. Could turn out to be a hilarious story after the fact kind of like. Oh look at me. I managed to survive. That's kind of an extreme example of what we call story construction or or sense making it becomes kind of a funny story to tell after all these edits. Our memories are no longer accurate recordings of real life events there unconsciously spin doctored highlight reels. It's a bias. That lee and her colleagues have referred to as rosy retrospection which technically means that our memory for this bounded event in time is a lot more favorable and positive and fulfilling then was the actual experience of the event itself but rosy retrospection aren't just memories. We think back on passively we also use them to predict what we will enjoy and will enjoy in the future and that leads to a second bias. What leeann her colleagues call rosie prospection when we think about a future event like a dinner with friends or vacation we predict that's going to be great just like similar events are in our biased positive memories anticipating that event. I probably wouldn't be thinking about the stress of going through an international airport and the stress of i dunno packing or not getting my bag. I just be thinking about. Oh the arrival. And the perfect weather. The idea of rosie prospection and retrospection fit well with what we experienced in her own honeymoon but did lease hypothesis match. What real people. Actually experience lee wanted to test this empirically but she had to locate a pretty special population of subjects. She had to find a group of people who are about to undergo a positive experience in their lives. Some sort of event that would make for a good memory but those people also had to be willing to fill out a bunch of boring surveys during the event. What we didn't realize at the time was that her scientific solution to these problems would come oddly enough from the biking world. Her colleague randy crop was organizing a trip down the coast of california for his students. And so we saw my. Gosh this is fantastic. It's like our perfect dream. Study leave i had. The students predict how much they enjoy the bike trip before it started. They were asked. How much do you agree with these statements. I'm going to enjoy this trip. I'm going to think this vacation is fun. I'm gonna feel good during this trip and so on subjects. Were also asked the same questions again when they were on the trip itself it after the trip when they were on their flight back home. So what have we find well. Before the bike trip thought their enjoyment would be a twenty seven out of twenty eight total points on these measure. They thought the trip is going to be awesome. But by the second day subject had dropped to only a twenty out of twenty eight the bikers enjoyment sade lower than they had initially predicted for the entire week. But what happened a single day. After the bike tour ended subjects remember their trip much better than it was. They said their experience was a twenty six. Out of twenty eight. On average the bikers final post trip rating was higher than their enjoyment. Actually been at any single point during the trip now that the trip was over. It was awesome when you ask people. Oh you have this event coming up. how are you feeling. Oh my gosh. It's going to be fantastic. I'm so excited. This has got to be so pleasureful and then during the event my socks are wet. I forgot to bring mosquito repellent. You know like so yucky. You know the food they ran out of whatever. So there's a dampening as we called it during the event and then after the event boom all of a sudden the the rosy retrospection kicks in where people are remembering the event as much more pleasureful than they reported during the event itself now at first glance the positive bias identified may seem like a great design each of the mind rosy retrospection allows our. Mary banks to be filled with extra positive. Less boring recordings of the past and remembering all those positively edited. Memories makes us feel happier less lonely and even more redeemed in the present. All good stuff really but lease research also reveals a major dark side to these biopsies. Are positively skewed recollections aren't just passive recordings that we go back to when we're feeling install gic. We also use our memories in the present to make predictions about how we ought to be spending our time so if are overly rosy memories are getting our past. Reality's really wrong. What does that mean for the accuracy. With which were making the decisions of. Today i remember distinctly having the time of my life I don't know what what do you call. Cut a small town kind carnival things that you go to at night and they have these like rides e cotton candy and i just remember thinking. This is my thing. I want to go do that. Even though she's a world expert on memory biases lease still sometimes falls prey to the problems of her own nostalgia. Well i made the mistake doing that. Not so long ago and i was dizzy. I got a migraine headache. The cotton candy was was terrible. Like how how does anybody eat that stuff. Lean actually assumed that her fond memories of carnivals would accurately predict how positively her presence. Health would feel if she jumped on a rollercoaster or took that first of cotton candy. She assumed all the great things remembered about fares of the past would feel just as good today as they seemed in her nostalgic memories but lease overly glossy memories of the past wanda up producing her current happiness and making her a little nauseous constantly rewriting. The past favorable light may make us happier when we look back. But it also means. We don't correctly adjust to the demands of the future for instance focusing on the highlights of a marriage or job might cause us to stay in relationships or work environments. That aren't good for us. Where the bad times in reality outweigh the good. What is not just our personal choices that are led astray are biased memories. When we get back from the break. We'll see that there are also seidel costs to all these rosy retrospection ones that can be used against us when we least expect it america. Proud again we will make america safe again and yes together. We will make america great again. We'll explore this dark side of nostalgia when the happiness lab returned moment.

I'm from colombia. And that's where. I grew up until i moved to the states. Eighteen years ago nostalgia expert philippe deborah guards immigrant. Experience explains why he relates much to one of his favorite literary heroes. Who fennell or beano a character. Gabrielle garcia marquez. Famous book love in the time of cholera. Like philippi who've been all made the tough decision to leave columbia to study abroad. But unlike philippe who knows ignorance of his own rosy retrospection never let him properly process that decision when he's in paris. Six ferdinand static about going back to his hometown. And he wants to go back. Doesn't enjoy party is and then when he goes back he's not happy like this is not all holly night in it are rosy retrospection mean that we spend the present constantly wishing we could go back to what it was like in the past but in the rare cases where those wishes come true as they did for who've all we usually find that those past situations aren't as good as we rosalie remembered to steal the eloquent words of garcia markets become easy victims to the charitable deceptions of culture but the fact that are nostalgic tendencies are so easily deceived. Also makes easy marks for people who might want to exploit rosier past human minds are so prone to rosy retrospection that. It's really simple to feed us a good story about what things were like back in the day some imagine utopia that was better then than it is now which is why so many political movements are keen to convince us that everything in life would be peachy if we could just return to the good old. That was the whole trump campaigned ride. Make america great again and again was clearly and indication. That was before on the we should strive to do something like that. Past philippi sought justice pattern in his own countries rightwing propaganda mid attempts to end decades of political violence. I left columbia very unhappy with the political situation. Some of the most horrible acts ever committed by government. I think in columbia happened during that time. What is based pricing to me. Is that you know. Many of the people that voted against the peace process had an extraordinarily distorted view of how the past was so they were hoping to sort of go back to a kind of life that never occurred in columbia. Never this situation again which nostalgia is a very bad motivator. And that's because the science shows that we don't just experience nostalgia for a pass that we actually experienced. Our memories are so biased that we sometimes experienced nostalgia pre past. That never even occurred for one. We only imagined happening you holy moly. I would be so much better off if i was in that. Imagine situation that i never. I never experienced. But i am very capable of mentally stimulating relative to this state that i am need right now. It the worst possible way glenn about making decisions. So how can we protect ourselves from the various parts of stall. Joe how can we get the benefits are rosie passed without all those biased memories. Hurting our current decisions the li-pei things one path forward is to pay attention to why we're turning to the past in the first place. What do our memories tell us. We're missing in the present. You might think that while you want is to go back to high school but really what is going to satisfy. The sire is to get new friends. But there's also a second way to avoid the problems of nostalgia. The funny thing is that it seems kinda country too. Because what i think we should do is to improve our memory of the past. We need historians really helping us dispel the delusions that nostalgia create i think universities should hire historians think podcasters should interview historians the best way to minimize self nostalgia to actually improve or memory as i heard mournfully based strategies for preventing the problems of rosy retrospection. I realized i needed to talk to someone who had special insight into how to use our fond memories. Productively not a historian or scholar but someone whose entire career could have been defined by the past but wasn't my eighties idol. Roblo listen i love the eighties as much as the next guy but when people come up to me the thing that most proud of in all my career is that i never know what they're going to want to talk about. I love that. I'm not anchored to anyone era or to anyone. Tv show or to anyone movie. The eighties is merely a fantastic chapter. The lot of people like including me unlike many stars from the eighties rob managed not to get stuck there. Despite the fact that rob is himself very nostalgic in the fact that he is for me at least the absolute epitome of eighties nostalgia. He's seamlessly managed to move beyond that decade. Nearly all of rob's biggest successes in movies and tv as an author and now even in podcasting with his new show literally with raw blow. They've all come. Since the eighties for self-proclaimed lover of nostalgia rob hasn't let his rosy retrospection affect his present success or his current happiness. One of my greatest fears was always being a one hit wonder for decades in. I still wake up. Go ahead wonder. So what rob secret. We'll even though he's not a psychologist. Rob seems to have an intuitive sense. That our memories are more fallible than we realize is unique cultural seat in the eighties has made him all too aware that we sometimes celebrate parts of the past that were at the time kind of sucky so in the eighties. Everybody's shit all over the music. It seems shocking now. Like when did journeys can't stop believing become the national anthem. Because i remember the eighties and people laughed journey. That thought they were a cheesy. Hack rock band now. That's every college. Campus frat party raise your beer. Start crying and dancing song. It's the end of the sopranos. If you told me in nineteen eighty four that that was the song. I would have said no way while it's easy for all of us to miss remember the past. That's a luxury that people who've lived in the public. I don't always have rob's problems with substance addiction and sex scandals are common knowledge. And that means that. Rob has had to be honest with himself about the harmful actions. He engaged in a young man. It's made him penitent. And more clear eyed about the past rob's also got an a newfound perspective on the challenges of teenage life as a father to his own boys. Matthew and john robb's kids never became huge team. Movie stars like their dad watching matthew enjoy grow up with more run of the mill. Adolescent milestones has made rog realize. Just how odd his own experience was. My son is eighteen. Okay so now. He's venus that kid right there. Eighteen events and it just takes breath away a mike. I wouldn't wish that on an eighteen year old kid. He's never home he's on. The road is making tons of money. And it's like. I can't believe it happened to me. But rob's biggest insight comes from something we talk about a law on this podcast to be fully happy. We need to get out of the past long enough to make the most of the present moment when you think about happiness. Do you think it's more about looking back looking forward a combination of both like how do you think about it in your own life. It's not looking forward and not looking back although even talking about nostalgia which does make me happy obviously really happy. True happiness is is being present in this moment. And your mind's not telling you. Hey you know what you should really be doing. You should be doing xyz or hey you know you should really go back. None of that part. That monkey brain party yourself is shut off. And you're fully present in whatever you were doing and content with that that is the definition of true happiness for me this insight into the importance of making sure he's living in the present moment came from one of the hardest. One battles of rob's life. You know. I've been sober now thirty years and it's changed my life and one of the big tenants of recovery is learning to live in the now and learning to be happy with. What's in front of you to the extent that i'm able to do that on. A daily basis is a direct correlation. To how happy. I am at any given time. Nostalgic can be a pleasant experience. But our memories of the past can also hurt our present selves. If we're not careful but when we take a present focus when we learned to be content with what's in front of us we recognize that we want remember what's going on in the here and now as happily as possible. We can avoid the problems that come with an extra rosy retrospection blobs living proof that understanding our minds biases can help us appreciate our past and even dig into all that yummy and psychologically beneficial nostalgia without the drawbacks. When we noticed what we're longing for in the past we can choose not to go backwards but decide how to move forward in the future. Rob taught me than an accurate sense of the pros and cons of the past can help away to enjoy and make the most of the present which was really good news for me. Because i really really wasn't ready to throw away my eighties playlist just yet. In fact after chatting with rob. I think it's time for a long classic eighties movie marathon in maybe some cheesy music videos. Because i definitely still want my mtv. But not to worry. Because i'll be back from my retro fest just in time for the next episode of the happiness lab with me. Dr larry santos fabulous lab is co written and produced by ryan daily.

Ep #366: Start-Up To Scale-Up with Joe Trodden

"You are listening to episode three hundred sixty six of the daily grind. So, as you know, I decided to rebuild my website, using wicks after years of frustration with just putting up with what I had I decided to start with a blank slate and design my website, the way. I wanted it, and that's why I chose wicks. I was able to choose from over five hundred amazing templates to get the exact feel and look that I was wanting, I was able to customize my site easily and add and move things where I wanted to alternately optimize, the experience for the visitor. The state has actually been completed for some time now, I'm just doing some final touch ups and adding three hundred and fifty plus episodes, which as you can imagine, take some time, but what would have cost me thousands of dollars and months of time I have completed super inexpensive Lii in only a few short weeks. Furthermore, wicks is actually designed for any device desktop and mobile. Which, as you can imagine being in twenty nine thousand nine is super important, and valuable along with it, the amazing SEO capabilities that wicks present saves me, a whole bunch of time and money and SEO, as, you know, when it comes to blogging podcasts, video is super important for growth in viewership, ultimately, what I've learned is that building a website doesn't have to be painful. It doesn't have to cost thousands of dollars and it doesn't have to waste a whole bunch of your time. It can actually be really cheap inexpensive and enjoyable using wicks to get started with wicks yourself today for fifteen percent off and build the site optimized for you and your business and your customers. Go to wicks dot com forward slash podcast. Again, that is w I x dot com forward slash podcast. The entrepreneurial journey happens in different phases, and you need the right support at the right time to get through the initial. Air chaos of startup in have your own product selling in the marketplace is really rewarding. But then there's a stark realization that what you got here won't get you to where you wanna go. Joe trodden works with entrepreneurs who feel caught in this. No man's land between startup and scale up to enable them to level up their strategy, and develop the true cornerstone of success. Their mindset. Happy monday. Everyone and today on the show, we sit down with Joe Trotta, and who shares his amazing entrepreneurial journey with us and a lot of lessons to be learned in this one. Everyone be sure you up a pen piece of paper, sit back and dive deep in today's interview with Joe trodden just before this interview ever one, I just want to preface that the Mike that I used for this interview is not the one that you normally hear. So the audio quality isn't as tight as normal, but I promise you can still hear it. And the quality is still there. Enjoy. We'll Joe trodden welcome to the daily grind. How are you today? I am awesome. Who you did? I am fantastic. Joe Joe for people at their being, I introduced you, if you wouldn't mind speaking a little bit more, who you are. And what is it? You do. Sure. So I what quest entrepreneurs specifically guys are pasta, kiosks of startup states have got a product in the marketplace, maybe a small operational team at no, you're stuck in a new man's land, where it's like a by at tilles supposed to did. So what helped them to do as she popped up strategy and also to develop their main set so that they can take themselves and their business up to the next level. Very cool. And how did you get into this? How did this start for you? Take us back a few years like what were you doing before you're doing what you're doing now? Well, I did the standard thing and the earlier part of my life road. Good. And what was invented comas a career started law law at university, a really absolute waste of IT up for eight years old. So, you know, just on that can Kenneth this supposed web supposed to be, and then after an epiphany moment, I wish interested in people's heads to the psychology degree, and I've just been ever since and no field of phone, my groove. So after those can have career type jobs. I sat Moen business for a bit. I went to work for notable accelerator and just a loved the just the, the connection there of walking with people's heads working with different 'em businesses that are going to have impact in the world. And then this led me to my own FANG. So there's a lot of trial and error in the adolescent ages. Now when you decided to set up your own thing, we're you still working in a job at that time. Or did you make the decision that this needed to stop and you want to kind of do some all on your own? So there was there was a woman of walking into the IT am at wealthed the same way to work. What a fifteen hundred type Goshen, just what are those days, it's like I just can't do this anymore. So I went to 'em. I went to work for an organization, a charity called the Prince's Trust that help young people to feign jobs and things like that. And there was an opportunity came up. They are to, to do something, a bit different and a proposed it to them. And they said, no, we've got clear funding streams for this. Not so just said, okay, well, I'm just going to go and do it myself. So yeah, I just say something up. It was a social enterprise stale, young people. But to be honest, I didn't really approach that with enough of a business mindset. I was still stuck in that charity, E M space aghast around, you know, just let's just do the good thing, and doesn't really that commercial episodes. Good learn and experience from from that. And then it was after that, that went to work for the entrepreneurial exceleron because it'd been bitten by that business book got you. So when you decided to start your own thing, what was the business model like early on for you. So the, the, the one, I'll talk about the business of the moment, because left 'em, the entrepreneurially salary set up for myself so to be honest, if even though even though at Laird oh, those bureau principles. There's a weird thing that you still just good for something the marketplace, because you're, you're still offered you road idea. So because I'm really interested in human potential and a see the value of mindset and it's not some, that's talked about the initial business model was almost bet lake him. What is it? You want to do. Let's find out know is that change of career as sale business as excel at your business, farther forward, less work. You what that is, and then help you to do it, but I'm too broad. You know, as an offer that was that was too broad. So speeding niece stone to think, well, actually, who are the people that you can help the most and who excites you the most. And that's why the Nissan minute the moment because those guy. Guys stuff is happening every day at it's meaningful stuff. So that's really what the again, it was a series of many pivots to get to the right offer. And when he decided like when you started making those many pets, having those Piff unease yourself like, how are you able to source out the ferry first few customers that you have? M well, I was I was lucky in some respects that I had been working with people previously. Okay. So the, the accelerated, are you had an offer that was quite broad. You know, the it was a great accelerate or but you're still dealing with people that lose a different stages, and anew that there was a group of people that were looking for a specific thing because you if you don't know how much am listeners, like might know about salary or some of them can be quite brought to discipline. You've got people at star up people at scale up people in between, and that's quite hard, instigate create a coherent message for and it's quite hard, earn structure a program foreign soon. So together, first customers at was, you know is relying on a referral work and since then just peck in the right channel, I think is something that's really important. Because when you are looking to make sales and get your. Traction, there's a thousand things you can do you don't someday make sale? Well, if you go your Facebook and you're like ten and your contrast, and you're going to network, and you're speaking engagements, and all these for me, it was about, where can I actually add the most value? So I'm not the world's most fantastic networker because I like super functional at it. Dad's nobody's people that look at echo versus the kitchen it. What are you apar- ever will have this related Ted's coversation for like an hour and a half? So for me it was about where, where can you actually reach an audience in an authentic way? So things like link ten what really well for me, and more so than the networking events. Gosh, you whittling dim was that you putting a content or is that you reaching out to people directly? A small the content fainti a thing that you need to get the again. It's about getting that strategy. Right. But that, that sort of fam- reach out to people are no. That you've got to build those relationships and end the right ways, but actually what works best for me is just going here like taking a strong possession on something. So I try not to content the other people that you can just access on Google, for example. You want to you want to just add that extra tweak to that extra level, because when you've got your customer, clearly defined I don't really need to talk to him about the basics. So if you know if, if someone's watching a video of Maine in the dune as beyond them, then the probably not my customer, and they need to start elsewhere. So really shaping that, you know, shaping up in the right win. Oh starts with understanding who your customer is what it is. They want to hear about. Gotcha. So for people listening, who? I understand what you're doing for what you do specifically doing my kind of walking through late. Maybe what your specific area of expertise is in what like how you help startups and businesses. Okay. So there are two strands when I what with a client 'em because again, this is about a pivot because I started with mindset. On soon. But then it was, it was quite evident that they don't have the right strategic framework, so you again, if you try and learn a strategic framework, you might just get, you know, the, the leading principles but still useful in Fain at you may also end up like of twenty bucks here on strategy what am I supposed to be doing? So with all the experience I had of a committed stages. It's like here's the framework, the roadmap that you need just now. So there's a twelve week core program that goes over like Belden not strategy Hoover, tame and also build in your mainsail as you go as well, because there's a lot of challenges at that stage when you look at the, the main set a low of is let go of stuff, it's fading, the right balance. Am eleven set and thanks to fill a bit more because post star up even the thing, you've got that you're selling probably still hasn't the right business model. So as really about being open. To tweak and change things like assailant and things go being able to delegate because the people that you bring in the back of you may not want to work, sixty nine days and the probably not going to be, as good as you are, that particular function because you've got the experience. Right. And you can actually afford the top dollar guys. So there's a lot of mindset challenges that go on in that phase and the loneliness is still there, there's no there's no leadership team. So being able to have that em external perspective. So the some clients say because there's no axe to grind 'cause they may well have investors by that point, or other people that have stake in some way. So I can give them that m basically that that is specifically for them. So over over the twelve weeks, what we say is will shape up your strategy will get you in balance. Get you focused understand your mindset, and where you can leverage what we call your superpowers to take this up to the next level, and then whether we work beyond. That, as you know, we work whether we're right for each other. Because what, what, what you can't see. And some, you know, I'm not doing anybody's program. Sometimes you see these. Hey, here's a miracle solution, and you'll you'll know yourself that the silver bullet does exist. Right. So over the twelve weeks, let's just get you focused teasingly. Let's get your main sentence shape and then fall that you need from here, as it me or is it somebody else? Yeah. And younger people listening like you have to go through that stage and twelve weeks is I think the correct amount of time because if you're trying to do something shorter than that you're not getting the right feedback, you're not getting the right data. You're not able to make a decision based on is this really working. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I would agree. And in terms of light relationship wise, as well. When you're working with people whose main sale, I'm gonna ask some pray ceratin questions, and it does take time for the trust to build up to have those honest. Stations as interesting because it's like in the entrepreneurship world. There's, there's a surface level conversation. And then there's a conversation underneath that, that sometimes happens, but doesn't really happen as often as it probably shoot just that honesty about here. I don't know what I'm doing. I'm scared here. These things are controlled every decision feels like small new mental when you know when you back. Funds it it's like well it didn't really right? But as a tough, a tough Furru, and there's a lot of excitement and hyper under when actually sometimes people really do need that outlet of a real conversation. I don't know what your experience has been of that. Yeah. I mean, for me, I think it's a little bit different because I really don't think that I'm in sort of that startup mode sense as you see how people who started business you grant money from investors. You've serious pressure on you how that can really affect you. Do you feel like when you're working with people on mindset, is more of listening to them? Well, yeah, of course. I mean, maybe they need to have the need to get that stuff out of their mind. The good thing about the benefit really of the program is to give them m an insight into what's, what's actually going on in their heads. You know, the, you know who Mylan coots, your new networks, and keeps you the discern patterns of thinkin, and how to get the right balance between what we call threat driving soothing activities. So the things that you say, do you comfort zone? The things really drive and give you that energy. And then to get the balance. I mean, a strange paradox, there is the things that people are really good at and get them hyped. Sometimes fo- second place to the stuff that makes them feel terrified. Now, sometimes that does have to be the case. But a strange thing that when people are doing the thing that the love and really energizes them, sometimes they feel guilty, because it doesn't feel like work, credit fact, about the whole point of did this. In the first place. Right. So that you could get to do the things really, really wanted to do know. How did you develop your mindset to be able to help others? Like, what are some things that you do on a daily basis with which help you get things done? Ensure that you're moving forward consistently. Well, I certainly am a Rita. You know, I do I do read voraciously, and probably at least a week. It's just pulling together all those different perspectives, because again, it's all about like the stage people are, and where are they in their own mindset development at rather than go here, as you know, that thing of one hundred bucks, what you supposed to read, as here's the twenty pages, that I think corral of sent to this broader framework, so you get multiple perspectives. One thing that I do, which is actually of a recent development but there's things like Cam. How do you stop being a perfectionist straight? So I am a bit of a control freak Bevere perfectionist, and it's easy just to go. We'll start doing that. But you can't because you're Maine's wire that we. Right. But what's useful is if you change the context, so I went to an improv class because that's one place. We are I don't you can't have control. Right. And you can't be a perfectionist, so it was all about trying to rewire that part of my noodle network. To say, we'll just just try this out, you know, rather than trying to do in an environment, like your business where it's a lot harder to let those things Google, you can actually accelerate your development by making that change in a different space, and is the same thing about trying to be more present trying to not constant eleven the future, which is another thing that I'm very guilty. All's so I went to an all chanting class and sat for an hour and dissuade Alm and because meditation was quite hard 'cause I stole my head just races. So who's about trying to find something where I could a different context to try and shift something in my mindset and a final one actually thought which will interest in was somebody wasn't that comfortable pet Chang, and being the center of attention? So they went into some acting classes because then that gets them used to be in the center of attention. So it's all these, I think that's really useful week to accelerate your main set development. And when you understand what is this block? And you in the behavior you want to change. Is there another context where you could you could try that? And see what it feels like. You're sort of attacking your weaknesses. Yeah. And by doing a different context, and, you know, you can you can bring that stuff by Ken, so rather than just sitting there in the business and go, and stop being so much of a perfectionist is almost like shoe and your brain, that when you do that is okay. You know, 'cause you're, you're MacDill, if you said in your brain flares, I'll pull the team. And the only way you can rewire that as if you do it when it's hall. So when you're actually innocent tuition, would you can't be a perfectionist and your brains. Good other lake lake it bad till you get through, and then you go, oh, well, that was okay. And you know, maybe I don't need to hang onto stuff quite as much as I do. So I think that's a really powerful thing for people to try. How long did you continuously go back? Like just specifically go back to those meditation. Classes? Yes, I've been have been continuing on the both of those things and still don't feel I don't feel there yet, I don't think, again, you can go till eight one class and be well that was that. I'm not trying to be the what's best. Productivity. I think a think whoever's got that position that stay for settling for beat. As a don't feel that I'm there yet there. There are moments where those little breakthroughs in feel YoM, Linton, goo. But then this comes back, you know, something else comes back in by really loved the concept of hyper vigilance, we are just thinking that ma- a coke machine thinking about thinking, so stepping outside of the woman in going like what, what my actually doing here, and it's good for entrepreneurs to do that, as well to just check in with themselves in Google, what is really going on in this woman wide. I feel the way the feel you know what is my focus is. Sometimes, we're so caught with every, you know, every seconds to code, and don't get that give your show that space and it can be counterproductive. There is definitely be self reflect there needs to be a point. I think every week where you need to sit back and self reflect and if you're doing it daily with meditation, because I think that's ultimately what it does. And I was speaking with a meditation expert, Joe and she had mentioned. That's how mostly normal people until they feel when they first go in meditating classes. They like I can't quite that mine. I feel like I'm not doing it. Right. But her point is like there's no way of doing it right. Like you doing is doing, like, there's no right way of doing like, when people meditate, it's not like they're thinking of nothing like thoughts thoughts are coming through as you continuously. Let them come in, and then release them you'll have less and less. But there is no right way doing it. I think I think, for me it was even understanding that the way my main set works ahead of good to do it in stages. A wonder if there is a point beyond the armed chanting where I can just do that meditation piece. But the reason I went to the old chanting was because then a still have to be doing something, you know, is almost like what is the next step? I mean, it was hilarious occult myself at one point. Good. That almost isn't quite as good as the last. Perfection the perfection of level Ted, you know. Beat aware that I was hoping that thought they'd just laugh at the office. Come on. Joe that that's just ridiculous. But yeah, this is thing trying to do those things in the right way. And just make those the right way for me to make these shifts in my head yet. And I think it builds up that one muscle. I think it's super important and you could speak on this, too, but for me it's, it's concentration like I think that most of the high performers that I've spoken to and learn from the one trait that I think all of them possesses the ability to concentrate, sir -bility to hunker down get down with need to get on, because I think a lot of people it can kind of, you know, you think about one thing, and then you've on to stage to get another idea to move forward at you're never able to complete the task in front of you. One hundred percent. I mean, the focus is so key. So certainly at well, never owns life's really. But with the guys with and the space the to do list is endless, you know, there is still end to that. And also in the space, the amend, like you say, can be easy to get sort of distracted and thank you. Is this the right direction? All there's an another shiny thing over there. So. Yeah. Like that focus and concentrations, really important, I think. The accountability that you know as as offered as part of the program is helpful for that because they say this is what I want to do. So when we have the accountability check in there has to be a pretty good reason, for, for not following something through, and it's not for me as to justify it to themselves, you know, tach vocalized, if their head was that the right thing to do or of state, where I was in terms of that focus and concentration, but I mean one hundred percent agree with you. The this laser like focus is really important job for you. I'm wondering, say you had the ability to go back in time. Maybe twenty twenty years sit down with a younger version of yourself and not changing anything but maybe just off yourself a piece of advice, or piece of guidance. I'm wondering for you without be. Why are you doing this degree? And yet, you know. Before an I just wonder if my younger self, there's part of me thinks my younger self we'd have gone to hear you about. I've got said by do you think the what, what would say as to? Really question. Like why? Why are you doing what you did? You know, look at the options think of it, what is that important to you go and explore some stuff? So rather than 'nam, thank can, you know, you've done quite well at school. So now you should be a lawyer doctor and accountant, you know, like that's what you're supposed to do. You look, islet you who does quite not at that, at that. All right. I'm not saying, I was like some child genius. But at that, all right. And nam than it's like the path as you university. You get this type the career and there wasn't any point, not just gonna stop and check in go. What do you would you really want to do? What do you actually care about, you know, go and explore to a few things for a few months? Just try some stuff out. I think that's probably what, what would say to myself, don't, don't feel that you are compelled to stay on a path as the norm for somebody like you. Yeah. I think that's I think a lot of people not everyone struggles with that, because that would sort of dug into you from an early age. Right. Like that. Sort of Howard developed is go to school in this thing and get a job. And I think more and more that conversation that's changing now but ultimately for for people, especially need to like that, sort of what's, what's driven into you. Absolutely. I mean, if you look at it, it's just does completely the condition. And if you look at the generation before, so I'm like, I'm Florida. So if you look at the generation before that was what they were doing as well. So it may be that things change over time is, you know, more options are available, maybe entrepreneurship as become a not sort of beggar thing. But I don't know when when you look at things like standardized tested. This is a beggar disgusted, I guess, but when you look at the way, the education is structured in the main memory tests, you know, it's like reme- remember this stuff, here's the stuff learners, you'll be tested on that couldn't do the next thing. So you become conditioned to thank, that's what successes. I'm smart, a pass a test rights education. I've done quite well. So non-swiss to university and be smart. They're in past go into the career be smart and pass the test not like be really authentic and ask yourself while actually. Skill. Do you have a mean who's testing a networking skill through education system? You know, who's doing nothing about who's a great facilitator, or, you know, those the real skills in life. The aren't just a academic, you know, I think we could do a change around that stuff. I completely agree. Joe for people out there who want to reach out. Learn more about you what you do. Where's the best place? They can go. So they can fight us on have might say experts still could at U K. So the websites they are and mostly on linked. Ten I'm not Facebook guy did about his pick. Pashto proof elevate. So, yeah, linked ten chiller the place to fade me so it's just I think he's just jewel trotted. I don't think there are many overs. They are even a debt, the global landscape.

Welcome to the show. How you doing. I'm doing great. Thanks for having chris. I'm always i have to. I had to have you on. So i know that we've had all the conversations but doing something for the listeners. And just you have an amazing story and if anybody can just here you know the how passionate you are about what you do and it. It shows you know in a lot of people they say. Oh you gotta be passionate about what you do. of course you do. But he but how. Well can you deliver that out into the marketplace and the people that you're trying to serve and you don't really to say much much copy about you. They feel that from you. And i think that's powerful. How often do you see that in in especially in your type of industry. Is it hard to kind of find someone. That's really in tune with their true essence of them as an individual and you feel their energy. That's an interesting question so that's been in a way a challenge for me in business life yet. It's also the thing that drives people to me so lineage fat. I've studied. And then i teach meditation roo- The way that we do. The practices is not like a certification program over time. We begin to embody the practices in. We don't talk about it like even in the the circles like the inner sanga people. Don't talk much about experience in meditation and we definitely don't talk about our realizations. That happened in meditation. Like outside of that circle. We may directly with our lama. But it's not discussed outside of the circle so in this world where people are Spending a lot of effort listing their accomplishments as a way of convincing someone that they would be good to work with that. Just like is done as home curious. That's why i was curious so it's kind of it's it has presented some challenges and i think i'm still navigating how to balance both like hawaii establish credibility. I think it occurs when people are with me. They do you and how do i. How do i explain that in still hold the integrity of where i'm coming from this lineage has helped me for so long and it's difficult. I don't even know where how. I just got to that that one question does leaning in. I didn't really come in come in hot obviously but I was just curious. Because i would just kind of like framing. The first part of the question. I was like well. I guess we just kind of go with that. Because there's so much we can talk about. But i like to always you know get really pinpoint on some of the questions that i ask because it opens up a whole other area of opportunities to display your talents and skills. But it's really difficult in the industry can't you can't you can't lean in. I guess you would say trotta credit credit yourself with all the people that you worked with all the things that you do in those type of situations because these traumatic experiences with people a lot of pain. That's a lot of pain. Impersonal things that they suppressed for so so long and they have probably have never even communicated that to another human. Yeah that's been my experience so so many complexities. It's amazing they like I guess it's not the time that i've been getting to know you this. You're right that you can sense right into the essence of something without even to describe it to you So yet the clients that i work with in treatment for mental health or substance use disorders. There's a line of confidentiality clause in this session itself but there At residential or patient facilities so. I may discuss their case with the clinical team if it's appropriate But then beyond that. Of course i would not talk about someone's case and then with the professional athletes that i work with there's also strict line of confidentiality that hold rider who i'm working with. Why am working with them. Because what's happening in sessions with me. Is that like the pre Pre-verbal connection which you're too. I can describe what i mean by that. Just a moment will kind of put a pin in that word but this Feeling of safety and comfort and a residents with someone and in my experience in experience of many others this deeply healing just to with someone in this compassionate presence saying and sometimes they will share with me with words. What's happening for them. But sometimes we don't even have to say. The words experiences themselves cannot be described in words or can't be accessed with words. So that's why i call it pre-verbal and that's like much of this and what i do. It's so hard to like. having. How do i tell. People are describable than a bio but it's experiencing each other each other on the pre-verbal plane and allow a healing to occur there. I obviously you know my story and we found other conversations and listeners. Obviously if they're tuning and they've heard me probably saying in later years we're going to bleed right now. But that's that was my gift that i received from my deceased sister growing up i when i was in those moments in that experiencing being with her and sharing some time in sharing space right i was you know i didn't. She couldn't communicate verbally. So i would have to selflessly. Not put myself into her shoes. One hundred percent and consent using in the way that you coined it loved it pre-verbal trauma in understanding what she's going through. And why is she crying. Why can't she walk. Why can't she talk. But i knew how to communicate and it was a connection that we had so when i lost that connection. That was something that it. It took me years years to develop enough courage in sometimes a framework to rediscover that again. Because i suppressed that motion so much so i i love what you do and i was reading that. It's so funny. Because when i was reading some of the information you provide to my team i was like wow. I was like already knew. This anyway intuitively but because you kind of know when someone knows her stuff you can sense it. And i think that's where your credibility comes into play when they're working with you they probably know within the first twenty thirty seconds yet. She knows that she's doing what she's doing. So that's an amazing thing so expand a little bit on one in your words in guest in a lot of things that you do because you got Capacitation and those traditions right and then energy healing from the complex trauma just from my my mind memed reading it just my memory but can you expand a little bit more in depth on what you mean by pre of verbal trauma Said this would be any experience that happened at a time. When perhaps we didn't have the language to process that experience. It could also be a time when we didn't have we had language but we didn't have the vocabulary or the contextual understanding of the bigger picture and in this case i'm thinking about All of the 'isms so at a young person let's say Maybe no one has taught us about sexism. But we experience or witness sexism. We have a word for or a a place to put it in our world view in so it feels wrong but we don't understand the fuller picture so if someone asks what happened. We can't describe the fuller meaning or why it's having such an impact on us on my soul level and then there are experiences that we simply don't remember because they happened at a time when we very young or they were so traumatic that we can't access the memories and i'm talking about experiences that our ancestors had right of enough from app agenda epigenetics. What our ancestors were doing seven generations ago. Even what they were eating is now a part of our lives. And i noticed when. I started when i was invited to work in These residential treatment centers for people who really complex cases it occurred to me that most of the healing centered around clients. Being able to describe what had happened to them in my personal experience on the major trauma that i have experienced in my life occurred when i was an adolescent and i experienced systemic oppression at that age from institute institution that i was told i could trust my school and when something bad happened to me on my school and i reported it than the school district Took action to protect their own interests rather than to protect me as a young person a lot especially with a lot of things that are going on to the in. Today's world absolutely right. So this happens With racism when you know just any of them this is happening. And when i was at that age and my family was trying to help me to heal from these experiences. I didn't know the words stemming depression. I knew i felt like i was not stay. I felt like there was this conflict where i was supposed to be able to trust. Powers be telling me i could trust. I had an inner sense that that was a Outright is that being like invited into like the lions. Dan essentially until that. I had to do this in order to heal or to do what was just like all those complexities on top of the original traumat- south so Like you as a young person. I developed this capacity your ability to have this unspoken communication in my family of origin. And then through this traumatic experience. I came to rely on that a little bit more. Like my own spidey senses like being sent here like what. What can i trust. Who can i trust and When i went to work in treatment. I saw that the therapist were asking. These young adults like to describe what had happened to them and i could feel their presence. That what had happened was so much more complex than anything that they could descri- not aware of like the grownup issues. At play we understand with our grownup is with adult is some of us. Some of us adults. We we still don't know we still don't have the language to describe what's happening. Part of this is because these systems of oppression are designed to thrive. And they don't want us to know their inner workings. The systems themselves is nature of these systems. And so when we are victims in those situations it's Were already dealing with the overwhelm of the trauma of being mistreated. And then on top of that were being asked to navigate a system. That's designed to not be understood. You mentioned the victim. And and i had my own beliefs on certain situations and i believe all of us are victims to a lot of things especially in adolescence. And then you you make a choice or decision as an adult to victor. You know of that you being a victim in that same type of situation being taken advantage of them. Whatever that that might be for people. And i think that the only people that have experienced really traumatic like really traumatic times in our life in situations and the ones that have been alone in our own thoughts to start to rechannel and navigate through all those You know really uncomfortable feelings and you can't really communicate sometimes how you feel you i. It's almost impossible and you're like i don't know what i feel. I hear that a lot with people. And how i'm able to pinch get to the root cause as 'cause i've been there before and they don't need to tell me but i know the feeling an unknown know what to do with them and i'm syncing. That's one of your gifts in how you're able to do it on that type of capacity. Would you say that would be true. Yeah it's it feels very similar to what's occurring in those moments like you said within the first thirty seconds or less. The people i'm working with are an i think especially peak. Everyone has experienced trauma bearing degrees of trauma And that's just reality of our world in being human but for those who are in a process or a place where they are exploring healing in their determining who safe to work with her. Who didn't help me. who can i be vulnerable with. Share this with then. They recognize instantly. It's like a an energetic tone if someone is stayed for not. Are they in alignment. Can i trust them. And when i was younger and i would get like downloads. About my classmates about their vulnerabilities. For example you know kind of having sense very young age that like this particular student when they go home. They're hungry At home and i had no reason to think that about them. And then i would find out as i got a little bit older that that was a case for them not to have those downloads. Because i thought. I didn't didn't consent to me knowing this and i might not be right but now as i've gotten older i think on some level is a consent. There is that recognition that you're talking about like i feel safe enough here in something about that leads someone like you or i or in the position of Like kind of knowing or receiving that information. It's like a lot in kia opens it up for that tipping shared into being fell to experienced in a truck. Hopefully untrustworthy away so powerful. What you know what we're talking about right now with a lot of people. I know that i know for sure. Even some of the ones that. I'm not gonna name drop because it just for the confidentiality. They have shared with me horrible experiences that they have almost forgotten. Okay and i would be working with them. And i would pick up on it and making sense and i was sent a message my k- i know that we are in that board meeting and i know that you've mentioned some things in certain triggers and you made a comment and your reacted in you. That's unlike you. And i if you don't need it. I'm not going to charge you office. Where a member team. Were you know board members so if you want my help i can help you and got on the phone. And he was open to it. When got on a phone in a mistrial going through the process. I started getting through layers and i opened as like you talked about locking key. Well i had the key to that lock to open it up. But he was never he would never expose that lock because he couldn't find it himself. And i was in so i gave cincinnati. I didn't have to tell them. I got you. But he felt that energy from me. Because i was literally in his space in that moment with him i was there and i was able to pick that lock in because and he was like listen and i always tell this to people. When i'm on. I really feel like i'm in that moment. In that zone ended a nucleus of the root in cause and the experience is like playing a movie back again. We're going to watch again. And i'm gonna watch us with by mindset and let you know what i see you know what i mean so and i let people know right right from the beginning. Listen this is going to hurt. This is going to suck. But i will let you know that i'm here. I'm equips i'm talented. And i gotcha back at no matter. What's going to happen from here. I'm not going to judge you. I'm not gonna say anything. This is between us but i'm going to be here. A habit tools at the skill set to be able to rely on this for you to do anything in life. You've got to be feel better about this experience. You won't have this trigger dysfunction routine. He was having so we pick that lock him bam. It was like that one millimeter move and he was able to have better relationships. You know better He wasn't masking because everyone is the japanese. Say the three masked mast that us everyone sees that one mass. You have when you're alone in your own thoughts or whatever that might be in the other mask when when no one's watching you that you're trying to suppress you're trying to not show and that's that's really powerful but i sometimes think that a lot of people like lead different lives and different input different mask on for certain things. How much do you pick up on that right from the beginning. When you're working with someone take a second to just take everything you just scared. What an incredible. Or if you have and what a gift for both of you to be together in that way thank you you have life. You have a lifelong friend that way. I talk about talk about this with a lot of some people is that how did you become. You know one of the top one percent and sales because i never sold a thing to anyone. I presented him solution. But i've never sold anything. I don't sell like i would never sell like the normal. I can't tell you. How many sales books that i would get through the third chapter and we're like this is awful so but you have to put yourself there and i'll tell people when i was asked that question. I'm did a thing on forbes and they were talking asking me questions for article coming out in ad mentioned as listen i i. There hasn't been one person has ever come to me and said christie really disappointed me. It's it's like. Hey the company or whatever. That was disappointed them but they don't look at me a different way because it was the connection that i had with him. I think why we like connect. 'cause that's an odd goes to mike. Mikediamond mike i love you man. And he Will we've been odyssey. We communicate a lot There's i'm not going to disclose we've gotta show and stuff like that coming out. I'll let you know but i love him. I love him like he's like. I never had a brother but he's like my brother. I love him that much. But we're having conversations. Like i got the perfect person you need to meet. And he was like an e connected us that yeah it's been i i. I really appreciate that meeting people that i'm a hundred percent line to and it's like in only comes from people that you're one hundred percent in wis that introduced to the right people so i'm very grateful. Yeah me too. And i mean i don't know about you but i can even feel like this might sound cheesy but like a heart connection even in this moment like this. Conversation is occurring on a heart level. Not not any other level in the kind of ties into your question about people wearing masks. I see the masks. But what i'm connecting. With with people on it sounds like you to this to I hope with their deepest dignity like who. They are under the masks because in my view everyone is suffering. I was thinking about this my meditation this morning. Can i tell you like a kind of a quick So meditation practices that. I teach from tibetan traditions years ago. was in nepal where several tibetans have moved For safety and there's a town in katmandu called boda in. Its where that vote a stupa is adjacent to. The stupa is a A monastery where one of my main teachers A ministry that he'll receive The tibetan buddhists. They walk around a stupid. I don't know if you've ever seen anyone do this as part of agreement i've seen Obviously i've watched a lot of stuff with spiritual healing and things of that type of nature. So i i've seen it before. Okay so the stupid is in like kind of like the center of town right. This enormous is like a A monument for anyone who's like what's it's a great big did they. Had one is seen one issue linka as well Yeah they're again. They're seen kind of throughout Asia southeast asia Different forms over the centuries these buildings that are Religious in both their the building of them as a religious process also the way that we honor them is for those who are that religion. it's an honoring of the symbolism of the building. So people walk around the stupa as a part of it like a prayer practice and people do it in the morning throughout the day and People in boda Soaring katmandu are walking around the stupa in in all forms and by that i mean it was remembering one gentleman who had Just such Large open wounds on his body and his body would be wrapped and on other days it would not be wrapped. There were people who Were were crying or hungary and there where people who look just fine and so we see in this moment something. Earn this place something that we don't see here in the us. And i'm guessing not so much in london. We don't like suffering right culture. We hide that we keep that inside and in a way it was a relief to see the suffering happening. Like us out there right. It made me think wow much. Are people suffering in silence back home in california especially in orange county where i live where there's a lot of people do to change how the outside looks and so within the the buddhist practice that i've been doing for twenty five years we we explore the textures that the suffering In our lives. And we just kind of accept that everybody has suffering and that We say nirvana Are happening at the same time. There's a non reality and so one is a better than the other. It's just the like the current condition in a way as isn't I mean the experience is that we're having are just A result of our karma and we work through this and there is a kind of safety through every experience or longest conversation and so when we talk about like the masks my practice in my life for myself and for the way of the world and even my work is to to be. Okay with the suffering that anyone might be going through more I think that that mike o. Kanus and willingness to see it is a little bit of what you described when you said to this colleague amount friend I won't judge you. it's okay. I am trained to do this. We can cultivate the kind of courage in the capacity to be a not only our own suffering but the suffering of others in. It's in my view. It's not possible to be with someone else. Suffering our own suffering If you get one get both. It happened simultaneously in finding this courage in capacity. Is i think the key to all of us having more like happiness joy in our lives in just a general better quality of life and back back to you know. Imagine you're in bodo right now and you see people walking around the stupa. And there's this man with the large or wound on his body and people are just walking by like not that he's not there but they're not treating him any differently than anyone else who's stupa and as people have their hands stretched out for for offerings or donations so that they can eat people freely just gives to this person is if it was the part of themselves that suffering. Roy is recognizing recognizing Energy and just recognize an energy for what it is. I don't see the are layer of the energy like i was. I was talking to someone about this before. It's like. I'm just energy in the flesh. I'm i'm in the flash. You see me. I'm i'm real but i'm just a mixture of energy and you touched on something And i i really wanna bring up. You talked about our existence in our present moment it comes from our choices and decisions and you know karma whatever that might be people and i. I truly believe this the decisions and choices that you've made up into this present. Moment is a complete reflection. How one what you feel about yourself and how well you love. Do you love yourself. And i would recreate my own trauma. Previously am in my relationships. I was attracting the same person. The same type of person in my life and now more conscious of it of course because it but i had to do it by myself. I had to choose that. Choose to love myself. Give myself permission. That i did love myself enough to experience that that joy in life and that was something that was suppressing. I wasn't able to feel that type of level of joy in my life anymore. Because of the last time that i while the last time that i was able to feel that satisfaction and joy was from my sister and then when she passed it was like i had to. It was like. I took like a hot iron or something. You've ever seen someone with a open wound and is trying to stop the bleeding. I put something just put stuff on top of it on top of at top of it and i would. I would tell everybody that. I was okay because that was a strong thing to do. While the illusion right. But everything's an illusion so and everything's illusion but are you disillusioned. It means so. That's a really difficult question. How much do you experience that with people. And how do you address it. If you do experience. I mean do see it. I think what you're describing is slow natural. I mean. I feel that from experiential kind of perspective and then also Right now i'm really into like rediscovering The theory of constructed emotion. You know what if my college professors like realized or developed or suggested Her name is lisa feldman barrett. So the familiarity going to familiar is something that like all humans do right. I see in my own life. I see it threat treatment I think part of the like the human condition. It's familiar so we go towards that even if it's unhealthy yes raised tusa feel just the feel something because they're not feeling anything so you would choose what you would end up doing. Is you're choosing that dysfunctional routine. Because you know that that's the end result and you know for you to receive that feeling but you. You're saying you're doing. You're saying all the right things but your subconscious is controlling your life and you don't know that you're like a magnet and you're getting sucked to it. Yeah so then. That's where like the brain chemistry The brain functioning becomes really interesting. And while i studied with Dr feldman barrett. I am not neuroscientist. I studied with her on. I didn't go all the way so allergies butchering her theory. But with the way the brain but the is i understand it. The brain is not with think that it's your to think right because it's just dislike saying that is regulating the body that i'm in charge of right in the brain is actually Predicting what is going to happen. And then when the thing actually happens that confirms contradicts. What the brain predicted in the brain might make adjustments based on that. Rain is making predictions based on past experiences. Mind like blown. To what extent. Am i truly creating my reality. Based on prior experiences and the trick is i hear a lot of people who are into like modern meditation. Who wanted like interrupt up process of the brain predicted and we chant. It's like it happens. That's like scratching and she's just only going to be just for a moment. It's not gonna give you everlasting change. Your loved us. Good yeah it. it's impossible we can't at happening like a for like our level of cognition So the way to change the way that the brain predicts is change our experiences so we can take responsibility for how What's happening in our lives by changing the types of experience that we have like a conscious choice chip maybe understand attachment theory and understand why we're drawn to particular relationships or to seek healing So that we have relationships that look a little look and feel differently than our previous relationships in the brain itself will start to predict differently based on these new experiences. I loved amandus conversation. And i knew that were just like all of conversations I didn't really expect to get into this. Study this part of the conversation on this topic because a lot of people aren't aware of what you're talking about right now. I'm gonna try to explain this for the listeners a little bit more when you're recreating your own trauma recreating your own experiences. The best thing sometimes the best thing for you to do is not to be alone in your own thoughts with is change their environment completely. And if you can't change your environment change to people in the things inside that environment and if you start it only takes. I learned how to become a dripping faucet like you. That's just the only way. I can pretty much describe this that dripping faucet water can move everything changed. The chain can manipulate iraq. Hits it in that right white ray over and over and over so that dripping faucet for me what it represents it's for me to see one degree more of something better and you get a little bit better here a little bit better here be a little bit more aware. Talk a good friend of mine the other day. I was helping him with some things that he's trying to get out there and get more exposure said. I have four as to every situation you wanting to be aware. If you're aware then you can know was happening in. You know the feelings whatever that might be once you kind of figure that out. That's a whole process. The next one is you have to accept where you currently are at the moment and where it why. And what's led you to this moment like you. Can you can manifest your future. You can create that but you need to fix this now and stop the bleeding and change directory and changing the experiences and the people or whatever that might be the next one once you get to once you have that. You're you're intuitive cy. You're tapping into your intuitive self. And that calm voice will lead you to where you gotta go like a beacon light. That's the next piece is your start to hold your. You're starting to take action to stop the bleeding start making a different movement in a different creating different experiences. P meeting people like yourself. Like i expect to meet people like you because i've put in the work. Do i mean like a is created that created experiences. But i understand this in an excellent. Gotta hold yourself accountable in create those boundaries. Where you're protecting your chew essence of you. Not what you've not what you're trying to do in life and people say oh. How do you become like uber. Successful in life the same thing and how to be how to be completely unhappy with your life and being like i'm happy with the cards i was dealt. I didn't know that i was going to be these cards. But i know how to play my hand. I will tell you that. I don't have to cheat so and it's like if if if if i'm able to keep doing the right things every day and being that dripping faucet then i'm going to create so many great experiences in so many great things moving forward as long as i keep putting in the work every single day and it happens every day it has to happen every day. How much do use in. That kind of brings me to a good question. How much do you see that with your. You know people that you def definitely help and once they get to the point now. No this happens happens a lot with me. I'm healed up so much better now. Working with you what how do you go on and explain to them in the nicest way and your office the way that you probably would explain it easier. Probably a lot more better than what. How much do you. What do you mean what your. How do you go about trying to explain to them. This is a this is a process that never stops Well the this is. I think maybe why I ended up working in treatment Because within that setting the client has already been told that they've are currently in the treatment world that's kind of the understanding that healing as a lifelong process. I find that environment like palatable. Because i don't have to convince people right but clients who reach out to me like they've heard about my work or something who wanted to like one section it way that makes me feel all wanna band-aid mixing feel like a parlor trick. When i thought that i realized that i was like this is why i can't. I won't i won't do it like i just won't sacrifice my integrity. His people do have a felt experience. That's profound. I think that can sometimes blind them to what's really happening like sure you're gonna feel some energy in your body or you're going to feel a connection in a way that you've never felt before but that's not the point like that's happening. When is the healing. That's really happening. And he said that takes a while so I don't see clients. Who have that goal or that or that I don't know that that like worldview where they just wanna have inexperience in just like go to healing session or something And it it's difficult because we live in a world where like the customer's always right. That's the world that that's the world that's manifested oven into this from from previous people and in businesses. Trying to make money i mean. That's that's that's what i'm saying comes from is that they don't wanna lose business and lose money. It's all about coin right. But for rule. I i'm in service of like. That's what i'm that's why we're able to do what we do. Yeah it's like we. We're we're changing the narrative. Whatever what what everybody's ever taught people they don't they should teach this stuff in school. A man. I have so many ideas like we should have a course on like energy awareness understanding that bam. That's how it happens. We should have a course on like how to appropriately. Break up with someone right. Like i wish to learn that when a lot of it. We didn't have like that trauma from early relationships. You'd anyway but the so it's coal I do. I think probably make a lot of people mad. But i refuse to not be in service of a client so then there are meditation programs out there. Were like you do a weekend. And you've learned meditation practice gym it within Within that discipline but the lineage. The i follow on the tabet buddhist practices by diana. We have a relationship with our route teacher that lasts a lifetime. Many lights like. I recognize my routine before route teacher. Was i run on previous lives. Probably so i do have to spend a lot of time explaining to people like i can't do like a weekend workshop with you. To teach you to meditate we would be. Were injured what i do as we enter into a relationship lifelong relationship other every week for the rest of your life no but the energy of our connection will continue. I think for many lifetimes. I've got i've gotten to the point with having those people in your life and i know this for me and i'm going to ask the question. How much with your helping. And you're you're that much in tune with the spirit of them k. Sometimes when i'm working with people. And i haven't talked to them in a long time at d. and of course the relationship changes but that you're you're still connected won't you're connected to that. The deep part of them that connection. I don't think ever leaves. But you have to navigate through that and you have to use your your census to get yourself to that point zero zero zero dollars all the way down to that one thing that really be connected to an individual and once you're connected. I don't think you ever leave that energy one hundred percent. I like you see this a lot with twins or triplets. The other twin feel. What's going on and my sister. My older sister ebba younger sister as well. I can send. Something's off with my younger sister. Because i think that we've we've had to learn how to communicate non verbally so we had that a different connection in normal family would have even people that i've worked with people that have come in contact with over the years they can send. Something's off with me. And i can send some things off with them and i'll reach out. Yeah i think this is what science doesn't fully understand yet or maybe there are. Some scientists are on the company we could do. But it's like we were so deeply connected in this. I know sometimes. I talk about like Whiteness in white supremacy in the healing world in in science and people are like. Where did she go with this conversation. But let lake we. We're going with it. But god what. White supremacy Privileges logical knowing right and so bad being a power over. Our academic institutions are medical institutions What we perceive as being worthwhile endeavors with our time has influenced what we see as worthwhile and so we're only up recently. We're paying at least our cultures paying more attention to the like logical knowing what we can see what we can touch less attention to this other stuff that we're describing and i'm excited for the day when we really like embrace exploring what we can't see touch in stop calling it wou- or whatever it out. Whatever out because everything is energy right and it again. I don't wanna like sound. Like i'm an expert on something i'm not but Your neurons are thing that everyone can agree on where a neuron be a starting molecule. Be doing something vibrating at its own rate over here and another one. We'll be doing it saying they get within a proxy certain flexibility in they think up. Why is right so we can imagine that that's happening across space and across time like with your these ones that you've Deep specific like looking for like very precise connection with people. And it's so common right like the i. I don't know many people who have never had such an experience where they're thinking about online in that person. Ben calls them right. There's no coincidence. No coincidence in life there's none zero. Yeah and there's no luck it's just energy ever like like where we are like the only thing in life right now manners and i'm conscious of them. I'm very much aware of. It is right now who i was. A second go doesn't matter who i'm going to be in the next five seconds isn't going to matter. I creating by the experiences that i'm having right now from my way of thinking you want to be successful in life you gotta level up. You're thinking i take it a step further. I please share please. Share look below. Everybody's as sensitive person. So i think every i think everyone is sensitive to varying degrees of get And in my experience working with people in energetic kind of way i do. I would place myself. Flake pretty high in the sensitivity like spectrum. So having this as my life experience. I think that not only what we think. But also what we are feeling is what we have to get to that level in terms of like what we're working with because prior to the thought there might be an agitation in the subtle body occurring the thought could be reaction to that education in the cell body like making sense of that signal in the body at little flutter while my mind just went somewhere. Do you know like I can show from charleston south carolina and it doesn't get cold often in charleston. Okay and it's just like obviously where you are. I like football season. I've ever playing football growing up. And i remember Right around a certain time. I can always hear like when i was a kid. I can hear the stadium playing the. Jv would play a day before the varsity played right. So i can hear them on thursday like the stadium because it was close and i would leave. I would leave the door open. Just to hear the announcement that they're wanting or not and i would be room studying. I had a vivid. I have thought about this year's so funny that you spark something for me like you feel a certain temperature. I would think of that experience. Yeah wow yeah. So then i mean that's like mine. Guess i'll like irl discern between the two so there's like my like how i make sense of the world like how to me ryan. I could be wrong about what's happening in the body but this three of constructive emotion so fascinating because when our brain is like this was network that predicting what's going to happen but it's predicting that based on signals from the outside world in by world so it sounds not being breathe on you when you're having this experience but that you perceived the temperature which may be was like the same temperature of that time in the past when it was the season and then there you go. You're having like the emotion associated with it with that. Experience is the neurons. You talk on his molecules in neurons. It fired in wired at that. And that's what that's what the image like right now. Like the people that i to talk about you know painting what your life like from your perspective is like getting a blank canvas and start drawing out and mapping and out do know the outer layers and i can. I can put the color there. I can change it i can. I can frame it for everybody to really visit like they see it so clearly. But they're doing it from my voice. And i don't do it in video. I do it an audio. Because i want it really helped me have more of an impactful conversation and i get really zoned in. And that's the the energy level you take you can fire wire you rewire people and you rewiring. But you have to be connected to that. I can rely it so i was talking to a client once. Actually it wasn't a client was one of my good friends west bays he was to close the show for a little while it's got his own shows and others. Things does so westview hearing this man. I love you. He was talking to him about some things. I was like what i truly do for. People is that would get an a phone or get an in person. Whatever the situation. And i would ask questions. You don't feel comfortable and slowly slowly into the conversation. I'm able to reach him up to reach into their mind and take their brain out now take mine and put into their brain in her head. And as i'm talking now on rewiring as i'm going through this process with them and talking and it sounds crazy but communicate communicate communicating with them and showing them with a with a different way of thinking. The everything works and they can accomplish whatever that might be an and removing all that blockage and as also walk me through. How do you feel with this. Oh i thought this hurt this. This happened. I thought this happened. I thought this that's the problem. You're thinking and rewiring everything. And once i get them to the point where they feel that they can manifest anything anyone or whatever that might be for people whatever situation insert attitude insert. Whatever i take my brain back out now take their newly rewired brain and put it back in there and behead and i hit play now. Hit start a hit on. They go. I can do anything. I'm like. i know all right. See you later. Bye hang ruling that sell. That's how that's how. I used to feel what i did for a living before i learned the actual terms and everything how that's like that's amazing is it sounds crazy. I i know. I i used this feel like that was nuts until i learned a scientific terms in studying little bit more of you know how your the chemicals even in your in your brain. What sparks uncertain situations and knowing how to jump ahead of those before the client or before the business before certain things actually transpire. I can jump ahead of it before it happens. So i'm predicting what they're gonna do. Based upon my questioning skills and the information and the data that i was able to get from them to capture that i would know what their their next behavior was going to watch. What's going to happen like like even where in certain situations in my life i had to go back in in re-experience certain things and looking at a different perspective that different frame you can see something. Then i look for the motive. What was that. What was the motive that spiraled this experience in in the next freight next chain reactions because this is a cause and effect world. that's only causing effect. There's a cause the happens to action you take will cause and effect so is it positive or negative and you can get people say that you can take a negative thoughts turn into a positive thought no you can take a negative turn it into put it into a positive place and a positive outlet to get a positive reaction and they don't understand 'cause i can't control what i'm thinking like. What's your next thought. And you start thinking about it and he just like sitting there dazed. You don't sometimes you don't want to know what other people thinking. I know that in this. Why is led me to my question. And i it is funny ever this actually down. How much do you experience and field. They're hurting feeling their pain or feeling their story are feeling the situation. Can you tell them something. I know that i can do it. Sometimes can you be so aligned that you don't need to tell you what happened. You already know what happened. Yes time explaining that that people can you expand on what that what that experience feels like for you and that type of way with we working with a client. Sure i know. I know it's a loaded question and i just curious now i want it. I'm actually like i'm glad you asked about this. Because i think there are like here of healers doing things. That i feel are irresponsible unethical. Kirk and i Did quite a bit of training with laura day is a well-known intuitive and author And she was tested at a university. You're some some organization in italy years ago for her. Accuracy was medical tuition and she was ninety seven percent accurate which is like wow but when she tells the story her point in telling the story is there's three percent of the time i'm not accurate and rents love up right so i hear abby inexperience people here what for a living and then all of a sudden they just give me like the psychic reading about myself not only. Is that like inappropriate. Because no one knows. If they're they're they're saying these things is the third one hundred percent right all the time and then sometimes they do it in front of other people and other people hearing this now. I have a bias based on what this person said. Because they're so confident with what they're saying. Wow i love this. That's why i love i saw. I love hearing people when i ask them questions. They say it depends. That's what they say. The first part it depends because it please please still i. When i'm doing healings. I am not trying to figure out someone story. I am not trying to fix something. I trying to be with them. In that courageous way that you describe that you are with the board member fellow member being with them through. Whatever it is. They're going through a leading. The healing energy flows through me in the healing energy. Is doing its work. I am a compassionate presence. Hopefully not having any reactions to. What i'm sensing and hopefully not having any reactions to my reactions to what i'm sensing rightly hundred percent. Yeah that's what i'm saying you have to. You have to be aligned to be able to get ethically that loved us so just last week. For example Was doing a healing with a client. It was my first time beating her. It was in a group setting an outpatient and is woman probably in her summer in her late twenties early thirties However my hands over her body. And i got to her like how big area and i saw a right of a red light a dot and i felt like wow the intensity of the pain rights year and i felt like the pain was like like in her in her genitals and had to do with her reproductive system. But it was right there at the center of her pelvis and i so i thought okay. There's a. I don't know what that means. I'm not going to make a story around this. I that's what i felt and then clients were sharing what they experienced after and particular cryan said That she or she shared that hurt Three month old daughter passed away recently and there. Was this pain moammar josh. So sometimes it's it comes through like that. Like wow. I was like right on target with like kind of like where the pain originated in even felt like I was thinking of like industrial kind of something to do with her Like family lineage. You know so crazy crazy other times like i know people are pregnant before they know they're pregnant affected megani new but oftentimes like there are certain towns. I am very Energetic tones that like. I've actually been gifted working in treatment where i will have the opportunity to talk to a clinical team to confirm what i might be sensing so i've recognized that there seemed to be energetic tones that i can pick up on that indicate particular types of experiences so experiences like Sexual abuse and maybe like at what age or what dynamics were around that. I can pretty accurately notice Other things like. I just wrote an article last night about something that i noticed in treatment at that surprised me when i started working with young men was The feeling the tone of paternal rage reading through their bodies. Young men What it's like for them to be not environment Where the father has this rage. And the way the mother responds to this and then their role reduction odyssey what they do yeah has impacted their their lives and their behaviors really interesting. It's really interesting you don't mind me. Mommy interjecting here i have. I was just talking so funny. I was just talking about my dad's a very loving man and i'm not trying to shine a light in in a negative light on him at all but even when he gets he gets in his mood or he'll start you know he'll where he works a lot and sometimes it just works like shift work. He's done it for his whole life k. Like is one. That's where i got my crazy work ethic from his him but what sometimes gets gets upset. He'll say things. Just as a at a fear which i know at a fear of something and then he says some gets really loud and really. I wouldn't say abusive but it's really that tone even as am thirty nine so even about forty so even even at the age at right now. If i'm at home. And i hear that i completely tense up. I tense up and it's so funny that you're saying that i. I literally tense up and go into protection mode a chris. I think it's deep in work that i've been doing. I mean i think it's passed down through families but it's because this Like paternal rage by so common in my audience. That i have ever my hands over This is a like a societal issue. Like we are properly karen for people interested to teach this stuff in school they have to write was toxic. Masculinity is turning into like request. I guess my sense of things that it's trading into repressed emotion and men mean i left. I was working at finance my twenties when i left to go work in the nightclub. Business and i was growing. These amazing parties in my friends from finance. Would come to these. Parties are like coast tables for them. They would come up to me. These men in their twenties working in private equity at top firms. Total dream job at bring ivy league schools and they would say to me. How'd you get out like had. Had you have the courage to leave this. They didn't want that job. They were told by as men. That's what they're supposed to do so from such a young or robbing people. Men men right now of like the opportunity to learn about who they are. That'd be better fathers husbands spouses. Whatever there'll be a lot right get chilly. Yeah so. I think it's With the child in your case even the thirty nine year old is fueling. I think you're feeling not just your experience with your father. I think we're feeling from level. The collective experience of this kind of humanity right like a unknowing inside of you like this isn't right. i think. Trigger me in your onto something. And i and i had to investigate this why i feel that way because i know i know the i know what i know. The effect a long-term of that would be. Because i had to go back in myself and and discover that and realign myself. Yeah i would. I would do the same thing that he would do. And he would get upset. I would never hurt anybody or do anything to anybody. My mouth will get me in trouble. Because i didn't know what to do with my emotions as i was reactive. I wasn't proactive. And so when. I would feel that i can identify it and i will say this you know over the past. It's been one of the most challenging years of my life because of my life if it makes sense. Because i i'm i'm i'm just a piece. I'm just peace. But every day. I wake up. There's some baggage there. I got a figure out. There's a new. There's a new opportunity for me to learn something else. Because i'm going through these levels meaning going and it's not that i'm penetrate the way down to nucleus the essence of me right. I'm really now reliving in going through different experiences. I haven't thought about since. I was a child and like oh i remember when that happened. I can remember. I what people are wearing in certain situations and it's nuts and i've actually from unreasonable. I'm telling you this in what you said. It really hit home with me. Because i've now. I have this knowledge. I feel like it's my moral obligation to my my responsibility to share it to the people i love the most and i did it in a and a third party type of indirect way when my father and now he's down he's conscious and now he's aware of it so the things that he was say he actually went to my mom. One time. it's christmas time. Like putting stuff up to get agitated. And he said certain things and being being a jerk for a couple of seconds things you do with the people you love the most right. You're a jerk. So but he was conscious of it and walked up and he heard me call. And then i guess it was a trigger for him for previous previous conversation. He my mom's told me that he walked up she. He walked up to her after she got the phone and said he was sorry. And like. I know. I know what happened. That's the first step is just being aware. Yeah wow krantz. I love this conversation. Because i i really resonate i resonate more with healers and people that are extremely spiritual of that way of thinking. I just don't i with with other things i just. I don't i don't resonate at all. I just don't have the mental capacity to be able to entertain a conversation with someone that isn't on that type of frequency. That sounds really awful. But i'm being one hundred percent chance i can kind of relate to a sense of like Having a more. When i was younger. And i guess today more alike agency over the situations i put myself bend intolerance for energetic incongruency foul right and so yeah so now as an adult i kind of gives to choose who i surround myself with how much conversation i have to engage with Someone who is not energetically congruent For me who are our spiritual aren't always but Or you know. They don't even have to be spiritual people who are energetically in alignment. There's lot yeah. I don't know how they get their for me. It's kind of spirituality. I love what you said though it. You don't know how they got there but you don't need to know the story. I don't know the story. I don't need to know the story in detail. I just did a fine. I just find my angle in my in and once. I'm past that exterior barrier that you put up and i'm able to break through a couple layers i'll do to rest. Just keep talking about the experience. I'm not listening. Because i know the energy and i know what i know to get down to that core now so I could do. I do it a lot by questionnaires. Like when a client they would. They would fill out questionnaires and from that first meeting i. I did have to tell them who i was. They felt who i was. And that's why. I set up the next frame of questions of the next call. The next call. I'm going to see if you might be the right fit. And i don't work with people that aren't true and i'm very intuitive when i when i say that completely but like i would say you know from the things i'm going to discover about you. I'm gonna see if i can serve you and see if i can help you in that capacity and if it's not a good fit it's my moral obligation to point you in the right direction of someone who can help you right And my time is best well-served working with people that are lying to that way of thinking are really want the best for you know. Humans are best for whatever that might be. I was structured that. I structured that the same way. I'm dealing with someone dealing with stuff that i would do. One hundred million dollar deal. I do the same. I do the same thing the same way. It's the same frame as my. It's the same. It's the same format different questions different situation but still same energy you. It sounds like you really have Almost like a gift or maybe of developed a Discernment mr the conversation. Like excellent discerning. Men i don't know i haven't really i. It's weird especially in a society that we live in you. You know people can call themselves. Anyone call themselves right. And i typically don't really share a bite this type of conversation as much and i know i probably should but i mean i just don't mess the whole thing about the show and that's why i wanted to develop the broadcast and media network. You know. the podcast are influencers or whatever. I'm just developing a community. And i'm going to give them the the right tool skill sets whatever it might be and i'm going to help them manifest anyone alive because i feel like i've already done at all you know where a for myself so when this type of conversation people can't handle that frequency and i know they can't handle it and they think i'm freaking nuts. You know like they were like curses losses. Freaking mind yeah like chris. Losses freaking mine. He's finally finally happen. We knew it was funny. I was having a conversation with you laura power. She's like the celebrity psychic. She's all over. Tv everywhere. i don't know her then. He missed familiar. Yeah i'll have to. You know she was. she's very obviously into. She's like psychic right. So we're having a conversation. I'm like an. I said something. Very people are crazy and she's like well you tell your forgotten talking. I was talking to were second. Because i was i was just in the moment and i was like he was thinking. I'm crazy if you will ever see 'cause like are you talking about like crazy all day. Yeah we've to find a better word for that because there's like a mental health stigma but we. I know what you mean. What's better word that we can use. Because i use it to I don't know like I don't know that might be my homework. I haven't figured it out by. That's one of my goals is to find a different way. Because i say that all the time. Because i feel that as well i know you're just in breen calls it wackadoo But i don't wanna use anything derogatory. I wanna use something to where it's like you know and it's a gift but i believe everything's a gift in life so when i hear some influencers or some people thought leaders and some people that are big names and i'm not gonna name drop them right now because i've actually pulled aside. I was like. I see your point behind this. But you're that's going to sell to the masses but it kind of contradicts the intention of you if you're preying upon preying on the masses but if you believe what you believe in you're doing it for the right reasons there's only a certain percentage you're going to see right through that smoke near and he goes. Well i'm not selling to them. And i was like an emmy hard i was like. This is what it's like. There are many ways to live this rights. And you're choosing this. Yeah and you know we all. I don't judge them. i don't i don't judge him and i don't feel a certain way i don't because i can't judge them because i don't know the situation behind that statement. Something might have changed. I mean it could be a lot of. I just didn't know the moving parts pretty much. I don't even notice story. See the moving parts once. I can feel those moving parts and knowing what's happening it ski. Can i can start. I wouldn't say manipulate because that's a whole thing. I'm gonna talk about another way. Go here on conscious at a time. So that way we have our own conversations for list. Because i have so many ideas are going my head right now of opportunities but the word manipulate i. I know what. I feel and of the word manipulate isn't a bad word. A derogatory word is used by the intention that you're actually doing something. I think i'm in nippy late myself every day but i do it in the pearson changes. I'm using my powers for good. Not that i so but when you once you make that won't you. It's like a very thin line once you take your tonio and put it over that line and doing something and using your powers unethically to get something you want. What typically happens. You can't go back because you'd in unless you do a lot of realignment tapping into your subconscious because you're so conscious knows you just got away with it and you're going to go back to that so i'm gonna will finish with that question. I think that's something that i'm just curious of. Because it's different when of neuroscience of the stuff that i know but healing and that type of way of you kind of feeling that and you seen a certain seeing certain color. What does that kind of. What does that look like. From from your way of thinking you blow my mind. You're blowing my mind right now. It didn't see your question going in this direction and the direction you took it in is if i'm honest with myself at the heart of what makes me different as a healer or what i do uniquely as a healer. Yeah and it took me a lot of like smith like some humility like recognizing Why do people keep coming back to for healings. Like i must be doing something different. Like let's figure out what it is. It's unique here. What's happening in my star so When i was in third grade. I have a very clear memory of having a stance that in my mind. I thought something about the field with the playing field is uneven in its skewed to my advantage. I don't feel like that's fair. I don't feel like that's a call in so i to Not have intuition anymore. Which i had and i think like i would go to movies. Know what was going to happen at the end of the movie. What what are. The intuition must be helping new better in school than than the other kids Or like manipulate situations for that people would like me more or something. I wasn't intentionally trying to manipulate. I felt like my intuition was in advantage. I was afraid that somehow i was manipulating the world. Since since an early age. I've been sensitive to manipulation in not wanting to manipulate in any way but then i mean To buddhism aren the approach is not to change thumb fix transcend. Nothing like we did we not. We're doing in our practice. Our practice is being with whatever is a rising and so. I was already like following that path when i became a professional energy. Healer many energy healers are working with like cutting cords or changing. Something in someone is someone's experience instead. I'm not trying to manipulate. I don't know what karma is. I don't want human from this thing because maybe it's going to have to deal with this in. It's gonna come back in another lifetime homer. Gosh is so good please. So i want to interrupt their carmine anyway. I just wanted to provide cheese along the journey and comfort of knowing that they're not alone and sometimes that shows up as a Email Disease being cured sometime in a way. That's like inexplicable sometimes ends up in become a major shift in mindset But that's not my intention when i'm doing it right. Yeah so that's my on manipulation and willing. I love it because the the intentions neutral. Yeah it is kind of neutral. Yeah well what i'm saying is is for you to be able to feel and to be able to toot of into understand where the where the the trauma or the pain is at you'd have to kind of be neutral. You can't be one sided. I think just from maybe my perspective in my opinion. But then once you're able to do that and and feel it for in your way of thinking because because your energy hilo then you know what to go now you know what you need to do and now now goes back today now. It goes to the ethical side yet. I mean but you being neutral on just in that even playing field and it's just it's so funny that you mentioned i would love to see new at it like just not fair. I know what's happening. i'm gonna help you out. I know islands as a different kind of canned for sure why i was My mom is funny. But bobby compared to look up my son special right the wrong for you lynch. My mom would say that. About like would say that. Because i was so i was rare for rare for a boy or obviously meant now but a boy to be that intuitive and it come to that came from my sister because i would. It was the connection and nothing. That's something in. The united state is a lot that i that's my competitive advantage. I draw from every day. As i get to do what i do for a living because she couldn't you know and i don't wanna look her in the face and when our energies meet again on the other side. I don't want her to be disappointed with the life that i made a festive and created after. She gave me a gift. You know and that's important for me. I say that a lot because that's my way of catching myself. I'm putting myself in there. You know. I have certain affirmations that i write down and put it on like little things like i have. I'm not going to say my daughter's name was obviously a life thing. What it says You know she is depending on you. Don't give up right and what that represents for me isn't don't give up on whatever. I'm doing a constant reminder. That what am i doing it for. I'm not doing it for her. I'm doing it to be so she's able to create a life of her dreams on what i have created a main like. I've read so many books on like being a dad or you know like parenting and but it all comes back to just to energy. And i think a lot of it. Just they're selling other crap you know and it just i see through the intention bice behind some of these authors just ridiculous and that's why i think i'm going nuts because i don't if i unless i'm able to feel the energy i know it's peer to its truest intentions than i don't i don't i don't chop it up with you. I don't really like. I'll want the best for you because i live in an abundant lifestyle. But i don't are. You just can't get around me. Because i protect my boundaries. Yeah yeah yeah we could. I could i. So yeah. there's for for listeners. I appreciate you tuning in all the way to the end of this and thank you so much for coming on and blessing us with this amazing conversation. I it's probably one of my top one got to be in my top five year of. I don't wanna be. I don't wanna like stroke your ego and say probably so i never looked away but it's definitely one of my favorite ones and that's another thing that i talk about with people like i haven't i haven't talked about with people but i feel it that i i changed my way of thinking on what i do with my life and what brings me joy. I used to like like sports or something of that nature. What i really enjoy the most of right now is just having so deep and impactful conversations. It passes that that it fast ford's time because everything else around me just feels like it. Slow that. I'm so much into a conversation so i'm extremely grateful for this experience. Thank you same. Ill so fortunate to be with you and getting to know you better and better each time we talk four fugitive ladies and gentlemen make sure that she You check her out.

He said she said which premieres this saturday here in detroit and i'm so excited about it because the t shirt show will be in the building. Thank god thank god The movie the movie is really off. The book about kenan sequoia Ken is a do that educated handsome everybody level and he would would have grown is a koi it but i think we're man you know by by a like a twenty to one man woman racial and then if you do like gay men so then it comes up the light be light one to forty and then you do like man that got shipped together is like when the states. So it's like king every woman in the world that wants them and then by been like that you know do get caught up in his ways man and then sequoia get tired of it and then when she gets tired of it she get him back in. May kate take get back. That's one thing we can't do. We talk shit. We can't take to get back. Must definitely not. you can't take it back take it. It's funny because i always say like you know like i don't understand how man 'cause he wanted to have a baby. That should like hurt right right. Oh i know that. When i got cheated on i should kill me like when not cheat. It was okay. It was dated but when when it happened to me man that that that it is lying on my god you know making handle with women take most definitely that cannot style. Are you working on any upcoming projects or anything like that. Will you know just got done doing indictment so that just came out like about three months ago maybe four months ago and that and what is that a movie or book. I don't do bus. no one okay. I haven't wrote a book in li- almost six years. I think maybe seven years so it really been just like it went to play so i was doing plays for a minute and for the last five years. I believe of new movies and tv shows. Okay she like. I didn't do my research or i'll but you know what usually we will have all this down pat but since you're a busy man and you'd be in and out and now she's not going to get off with that she a. I am a phone call away in a email like one but it has been doing plays ideal place for two three years and then It just went to sleep with the movies and once i got the movie i just haven't heard back out i'll have movies is really that i think movies were really say my life bush made me do the right thing l. Plays made me graduate a little bit with the movies and tv. That's that's why i got. Cut me. say that's when you got good so Are there any producers or you know any film writers that were before you that motivates you and inspired you to get off into the industry. Will i mean we were spike lee. And you know all those people right. I'm a new york kit. Originally i'm in michigan for our lights at fifth grade. Alka so like here it was. It's funny because like it was nobody here. There's like really motivated me. But then the more i got into in the more i got into the karcher here. It's like you know you start meeting people. That is just phenomenal. So there you go you meet like terrence in from formula fell you meet beasley and you meet. You know dan brown and kamaz smith fan. You know all of them. Melissa taub is and the size and all of you meet them and then when you meet them like damn is really a real thing like people already know how big the independent industry is for our stuff nationally. Like if you just look it up you have to. A dope is film companies that might up like nationally light the shade and all our movies are are making very good money. Al qaeda people already know light when you got like a first lady one and the first lady to in i declare war indictment than you got plug lovett from moulana meeting club. Lavin you know to eleven and five. Odu guy would be like child support and Way in narc about the come out. You got all of those doing so much. It's like it's like the rap industry of how used to be new york. Everybody wants to go to new york to do rap and right right but dass is now like everybody trying to come here to do. Independent movies could avon day trying to get our formula but i- formulas is being dope is not nothing else we not doing. Nothing special other there'd be consisted given your good dope. That's all right so Whether hard for you to get started no no no 'cause it it guy. The way god works is different by where he will guide did was he said okay. I'm gonna show you how to be smart. So i went to college right right and then he someone show you how to be hustler saw. So don't right he's gonna take that from you so he shot me up and then when i got shot up i gotta figure out something so you take a hustler you take a college educated. Do and he write a book. Because you hear when you write a book you become a million which is a fucking right so then you write this book and then you sell books in the you right like three or four bullets. Were really five altogether. You yardages i'm just making it. I'm not making like you like like say shit. But like when you make like fifty thousand dollars a year and you got like mouths to fee in his not just. Your mouth is not a lot of money right you filming so especially when the fifty nine consistent like you're gonna make fifteen year but one week you may only make five hundred dollars but then some of you may make a two three four thousand right you feel me and your wife or your husband would not want inconsistent motherfucking. You're right so you like i do. I'm gonna take this hustle from being booked solid and author. I'm gonna do plays then you do play so everything is gearing you up for your net future projects so you do plays and that's when you start dealing with people right so writing a book get you start writing the script right and then when you do play that get you to start dealing with people alka right and then once you do plays and you find out that you can only make so much money you who and play okay. Let may so much right. Like i did the masonic temple. I did the music. 'cause i really i shouldn't yeah right like what are some of the players that you she. I'm asking this for the people that's watching over here too. she likes. She didn't even know. This what i do my sisters. So it's like I did. He says she said the play. How i did call up in confuse caught up Like seventy sheets and it's funny. 'cause i can't really remember all of them but like i had kristen keys. I had a mom worker in i had Race read in it. I had ken whitley. I have brother memphis flow at like a bunch of you know and that was like the thing that really set me apart from a lot of other detroit people where i how cast are bringing. We're not lie to could komar with bring celebrities on his we. I call a micro budget. Plays like i like. We were just doing little places but we are used bringing some everybody's where it was just like i started bringing them for real for real and then i stopped doing that when i took a loss. I took like a huge loss. Okay i was like front to do a movie. Okay and i just never looked. She is tripping. I see her. But yeah i just took. It took a loss in outside movies in. I have a back now. I love doing this shit. Okay so So you say you did those movies and you did plays and now when during the place. You're i play. I play what your very first places she said right. Okay how did you feel like just being new to that industry. I'm arrogant is so i can do this. Shit is that's all it was like. I knew that my play and my books were better than most people's you know. I thought that the only thing that made me different than then they had a bigger budget. Okay you know what i mean so by being and i think that's where everybody like if you just confident you know and as i say arrogant but it's really just confident i just knew the acclimate. This shit work you know and doing plays when you see the the best thing about play is when you there and you hear the applause you hear the laughing right you like. I wrote this shit. I wanted to laugh at that or when they cry in damn audience. You like damn. I got them crying. You could see it and when you do movies you really can't see it. 'cause you're sitting at home watching job. He crown about or laughing about. I think no. I think i did the right thing. I think i did because they why keep watching so i think i'm doing something right right. Do you have any favorite actors or actresses yup. My favorite actor is probably leave master. Spratly if we talked a local or they'll the hunter if we talk talking local and then if we talk in national a day my favorite actor denzel washington and my favorite addresses Probably I'm i'm i'm i'm i'm i don't know i like all of them. I would probably go with. And i'm fucked up like i remember. We got a brain fart. But she's everybody's favorite momma favorite black actress for real come out me. She played What she she's on everything. She's are person. She played turner. Bass you go was like i had a brain freeze. I thinking about them lades. Well i have this book here. He said she said. And it's by you. You are truly yours. Truly dentistry and i cannot wait to go. See this movie saturday you to see you yep I have few people come in with us you know. She brought them ticket shots. He wasn't plan. This might not remember. I mean who. I am today tomorrow. Go my yard. He was right. You see here. I you see here i i think i'm new. I think you think i'm new. No i don't think you know know. I'm just noon. Okay do you know who your boy is. So dave where. You're going to go to the movie saturday. i'll be here. saturday shows dave. You can watch it on to you watching on amazon. I think you should watch it until we get paid more. Okay oh so it'd be able to be in tunes okay. Do you have any advice to the youth. These young black boys. Because by the way before i let you finish or let you answer the question. By the way we at the t show. We support our black entrepreneurs and we support black businesses and basically anybody. That's trying to step out. And do their own thing and become their own boss legitimately. So what can you say to our black youth. Trust yourself lie really. Just trust yourself if you don't believe in. You don't know why you won't believe me like you'd be surprised if you as guy for and where he would do you know he makes it happen on the with is yes alright. People people like y'all gonna come on these impre. No you really probably while you laying in bed you know so like if you just do simple the simple is asking first and then doing and like people rely will. How do you come up with the money where i'd started doing then. People rely y'all ass. You'd work and so i want to help you right. You know and thank god. I don't need to out. No more. And i mean i could pay for everything i want now. You know what we are lying literally like seats movies hall tv series in you know so we've been doing this for many and by being like that balance i okay what you don or are we going to put the money for you. Can we cut for to do that. Is like we believe. And as i like the detroit the one thing about our film community here we really believe in us. Okay you know lie where he says she said. This is the first time. I ever got my movie colored light and you may not understand that right so like when you see my movies you. Oh that's dope. That looks good right. But when you see a hollywood movie they spent extra money to get colors so that that read pop right so when you see like when you see like a normal Micro budget movie okay. It looks good. I shot with a rear camera. Saying things that you will shoot with hollywood but it's it's still not if you like. I just nice something. It's the post production. Yeah i mean that's and that and the reality is that post production can cost more than than production. People don't understand like literally asked if i told you how much i spent for the color blind. What the fuck actually. I've got a couple of friends that have done any films. I'm unfortunately a little familiar with like i like. My i found cost me literally ten thousand dollars. I made like a liberal over four hundred thousand widow but it took today so like to date. It's like four hundred thousand movies like six years old right but then as i progressed lie firstly one did almost two million and light two years out sell saying so. That's what people. That's why i say that like the film community here is different. 'cause we may different money hear people dot did. Don't even understand the money that we make here. You know what. I mean like literally people are eating really good indie film. They like yo. And i spend good money on his light with this pulse pedestrian rogers day where he said she said. I talk in the hallway. Busy who does movies to people name and literally healing your your shit. Don't but man if you just letters color. Usc and i'm like show me the difference right. He sent me something on get. It got no. That's it not colored on my okay. Look good though. He sent it to me color. I and then send it to the distribution company a year. We great now. So it's the little things and that's the thing like in sports in life and sports life relationships. Whatever you may be ever. I can do to beat ship right. It's the little things that make you a pro okay. You know what i mean like when you when like like when you approach that means that every little thing that you do is perfect compared to just during the big thing pro partly anybody could make a jump shot right but a pro knows where he gonna make every shot at on the floor he know why the shoot it everything you know. And that's just the difference so you know we're acting in a movie you want to have a if you have a party scene you don't want just two people at the party. You fail me if you wanna have a police if you wanna have a police station you don't want one copy and talk to you. You know the the people walking around the police station. You know the phones ringing you know as chattering the back dole's themes make is what made production look like. They cost a million plus dollars right. So that would be my vice man. Just do your thing do your thing. Okay south dave. Do you have any right. Hey i died. I'm just here No i mean. I guess so what i was gonna say so because i just know from Nobody eric Doing this stuff So how do you find distribution like are you still working the Local film festival markets. That suffer you just jump straight in with. I've never did a found fast. I submitted i want one in. That was just on some the ohio with the columbus festival. I just did that just for the fuck of it but like i. I'm with a company. Called indy right. They who distributed. And i'm ninety india. Right somewhere i i was Well i'm still with them. Technically got my movies. But i wear homestead now with the homestead like i just went to homes that way Indictment who is out to carter. They're going to do my arm. He says she said they were doing first. Lady three that we start filming on sunday you know so you know. I'm all the platforms. I'm on to amazon prime. Imdb tv picot everything. You know what i mean so look it up like look up all my movies so is it. Is it better or worse for you. Now that there are so many more platforms out there if better way better because i'm on all of them like like seventh put on et. That's like one bit shocked. And even with that you know to be paid me very well and when you have all your stuff on all the platforms everybody got away to see it. You know compared to you. Just being on amazon prime for example. You know if you don't have primary you gotta buy it in all night. Now you just go to tubi. You could go to imdb movie you know so i love love. Love love a lot of platforms. You know by. Like i said ibn movies and i'm really happy i live on good life but i'm happy I am happy that that will happen. Yeah basically but no. I'm happy that You bringing this to detroit really and You know giving us more. You know what i'm saying. Well i think that's honest is one of the things that he said earlier in. And it's true. I you asked them before the show started. You know yeah. I was in east coast kid. You know boston and i lived in dc. And then. i moved out here. And i've been here since ninety six and it's detroit is the smallest big city ever you'll ever be part. That's and that's what i think. People don't understand is it is very tight knit and it is very. This is a very i. Don't wanna see clicky but it's it's very cliquey it can be but it's also put it's also very open is not as seattle because it's got it's got a very east coast but like detroit. It's still has the eastern time zone but it's got a very east coast city vibe to it like you can walk up and talk to people. But they're going to a. They're going to be skeptical. Shit if you don't know anybody in that circle but if you know somebody in that circle if you're in you're in and and you're along for the ride and that's and that's the good touch bad touch of detroit. Sometimes it's funny that 'cause like i. I feel vibes crazy over my we from new york from my dad. My dad was from baltimore. Okay right in. My mother is jamaican panamanian. She was born in new york. So you know. When i got here i still have a home in your up there a lot. And it just like the whole different flavors like tell people is in michigan. This is the one place that you can make little money and still live good and if you make fifty thousand dollars in new york you're poor if you make fifty thousand dollars in dc you're poor. You may fifty thousand and boston. You're poor right here. You can have a good life with fifty thousand and fifty thousand people. Don't get that you do not get grass everywhere who get grass and michigan. Okay you know. And when people giddy about the uniqueness of this place you live you right across from another country. You got all these late. This place has the most boats out of anybody in the whole country. And you know and people don't really know that like they don't really know how dope try to. Yeah this is he for me. Yeah yeah the good thing. Hello got on your way so Okay okay so there's a very real thing. And that's at honestly. That's one of the things i love about. That's why i've stayed here. I mean. I've been on for twenty five years now and it's it to me. This is still people have asked you. Would you move back to boston. Would you move back to dc. Would you know man like this like this area has everything. Yeah you know. And it's like. I always gotta job because i was a kid. I lived in new hampshire. And you know what forty five minutes south you're in boston. Forty five minutes north. You're in the white mountains. Forty five minutes easter at the beach. Forty five minutes west. You're in vermont. Or maybe even canada five minutes. I forty miles. Anyway you're get. He and same thing is true. Here you know you can.

I mean really little light light tech news this week so yes so we need one of those every once in a while exactly yeah and also again happy budder saito moms have a great weekend so we'll jump in with the tech news and it's good that that restrictions are starting to loosen up around the country and people could actually interact with their families this weekend. Yeah wow a lot of states that have been really strict for for a while so it's good to see you know people will actually get to spend time with their mother's mother's day and go out to eat and i know of berg where i live There is some restrictions but both my wife and my my mom does not want to go out to restaurants and also when both mothers day mothers day going out to eat every restaurant you go to is booked and you have to have to up early to go and then add to it. The fact that people haven't been going out for a year for the first time it's not gonna make anything better right absolutely. Yeah not better. No no and i know for me i. I'm not. I'm not going to be eating outside and you know and staying out of it and the dirty parking lot and enjoying the exhaust fumes trotta grows by so so hopefully. Hopefully i'll think of something First weekend so again at all all moms have a great weekend no matter how you spend it with the with moms so we're gonna dive into the news of the week. I in Netflix's this is coming from a report from protocol where netflix is towing the idea of rolling out. A new service called and plus the netflix recently. Sound a survey sent a survey to some users asking them if they'd be interested in accessing new contents and this podcasts user generated playlists how to's and more netflix's describing the and plus as a quote future online space. We can learn more about the best network shows and things way to them until now netflix's has been posting behind the scene interviews podcasts and similar content youtube instagram other social media platforms along with behind the scenes content however and plus come with a few other useful features and plus user be able to create lists of their favorite shows net flicks and share them with their friends. The service may even list music from tv shows and allow users to create custom playlists from it. Another feature that netflix sharing. That's the feature that that's the one that's the one that's a good. That's a good idea. Because i always kendall liking. Tb tb tb theme music. There was a time when even like tv commercials for putting the lanky. It was a music video. Put the in the corner. They'd put what the song was. And that was the best thing that's ever happened and all of a sudden. I don't know why they stopped doing that. Actually ford ford still running commercials. Yeah they are. They're running their commercials. Glad because it was such a great idea because you hear that song one of the one of the most famous people went had to go searching for it was the the internet explorer commercial song. Because everybody's like. I don't care about the browser but that song is great and spotify said it was one of the most searched songs And as she has ended to that it was one of the most search songs of the year that year Because it was such a great song and so weird because the whole rest of his catalogue didn't sound anything interesting are they know that. I didn't know that microsoft had had a song or were they use it to get it from. What was the song i'm trying. I don't remember the guy's name now. Because i mean it was how long ago was Was i e the thing that they were pushing Alex clare to close i. That's the one okay. Still don't know what that that song as camp. play it ryan can't play. Yeah so yeah. We don't we don't want to get you know taking okay but alex alex clare too close for our listeners and viewers go check it out. It was it was a great song and everybody was like. Wow this is. What's that song i need it. And but that was before companies were putting it in the corner. And i was so when i started doing that. So the idea of integrating that into part of net flicks Because you know there's some shows like queer eye right then sends since the original cast has been famous for having amazing soundtracks on my on my amazon q. I haven't my amazon platelets. I love it. It's a good good really. They have some really good songs on an and you know the first the first two seasons. They put out a compilation disc of of the songs from each episode. Netflix hasn't been doing that. And it would be nice to have some great way of identifying without having to grabsch zaman. Hope that you cash it in time especially on. Tv got netflix. So you can rewind and try to get but if you're able to go and say what song is it that'd be great And i think. What the i i i with with with ford. I know they had to music. And i'm pretty sure. I think during this one of those the super bowl this past super bowl or the year before that. It has an logo The integrated Were doing like a A co branding or or co Marketing ploy to a contest. Or something like that but a day did it have on it and the commercial and a pretty short won the super bowl not this year. Maybe the year before but Yeah so the other. The other feature that netflix considering pluses to allow users to quote learn about a plan show and influence development with be back before filming has finished and plus my office include reviews popular. Netflix showed him users. A netflix spokesperson told par call. The survey was as part of the company's quote regular efforts gate audience interests on new teachers and they didn't have anything more to share for now. So i think what to me to me. Maybe i'm amazon. Stone amazon has done. Is they have their movies. Tv's music also podcast. So i think that so is it seem that net flicks and other shooting services on and go into that same plays well. Yeah it's it's not the first time there's been talk about Netflix getting into lower production content including podcasts. Because obviously what goes into a podcast is very different than what goes into a stranger things. And so you know what what you and i do versus the the. I don't know those those weekly shows. You are very different so you know. There's been talk about them getting into that before. So i expect that any day honestly so this is not a huge surprise. Some of it some of it is. I really liked the idea. Essentially they've pitched patriot on right mom with the idea to interact with shows before they're produced and things like that. They've picked patriot on which is fine. Yeah is it makes sense and we did talk about you know we were before we came on air. We did talk about doing something similar. Appre appreciate Prior to coming on. And maybe put that dude as a patriot and again you know i. I said that earlier we before we came on on air. You know i'm open to it. I mean i you know. Be great to cab but also to a two. maybe netflix. If netflix doing was his me it's great to have the income persson. Because now i watched all my hulu hulu playlist now netflix. I still have still watching Fours laba no i. I'm still i'm now getting into skew. Now after capri pass would say a couple of years is been dormant. I am like all. Yeah it's like catch up on my hula q. Related longest time. Trust me. i'm a devoted. Tv my my watch episodes or cd's great stuff on tv. I had to put an hulu. So yeah i'm i know not binge-watching but i just wanted to go through one now in that flicks now. So i'm i'm all in. I'm watching right now. The circle for a season great show. It's odd it's great. it's so interesting. 'cause i recently finished the second season because it finished on wednesday and no spoilers somebody wins right and they have to face their past but yeah that that's the premise of the show. Yeah so obviously. There's a lot of time in the first and the second season and so i didn't exactly notice the differences between the first and the second and then i started to re watch the first. I'm like. oh wow the graphics. In the first season we're terrible like the alert graphics and stuff were yet. We're like super mid two thousand dollars instead of twenty twenty But then it's because you can start. You can start recognizing the rooms like oh that's season to like. Oh that was a his room from season. One fun okay. Good good good. Know when i want to catch up but i was gonna say with the with. It's all in you know but my hope my concern is that with all the human services hulu increase surprises disney plus increase their prices in every on his name. trump agreed. So my thing is though. Do you think that this is where this is. All speculative that were dissecting it as we go so you think it's do you think a or nay that if they do introduce and plus i'm in i'm in for it but because i'm you know i as a as the as i'm having somebody different streaming services and i have. I do think that that if they add this do you think they're gonna increase the monthly subscription fees. I guess it'll be an optional. Okay not as a as a bull. All in service in yeah. Yeah you'd keep your regular plan for nine hundred nine or ten to nine or whatever it is now and this would be a three bucks or whatever this would be. this would be like a hulu with no ads. Okay this will be a feature that you can add your subscription. that's my guess Okay that's that's what the plus suggests to me in this case because if you're going with who lose naming hulu plus was a paid subscription on top of the so and it's just a gas but i right. I would say that like patriotic. It's a it's an add on top of the content. Okay okay yeah i can. I can see. I mean again if it's if it's going to i'm all in for it but also to be good that you know but they're also again. What with the play. When routing they're saying the an ad podcast you know for us you know for for our podcast and play that slide and central and if tbn is on netflix. You know that's that'd be awesome day one very very so. I'm in amazon music day. One i was on pandora day. One except for f-. I've live because they couldn't figure out. I imagine todd was also missing because they could not figure out what a feed with that many items in it Keep for tbn rookie. New central for geico. Central 'cause i know i know prone tbn But i don't think todd's main feed prunes for for new ingestion so okay So i bet. I bet pandora panicked on him too. I bet he's got way. The thing that really killed me was eh five. Live panicked but Special events didn't and special events either. Okay i got way more plug. It's life presents. Episodes have at five live episodes season. I don't know what the panic was. but yeah i. I was a both of those on day. One will be netflix day. One to i don't know what it will take. I mean i'm all. I'm all in if if it's there is in the and i think that because because amazon's like d goto place for again. Tv's movie shows podcasts. Audiobooks what have you so netflix's like you know going to do it. Why don't we jump in and you know and they're adding more and more content. Because i just got a notification. They're adding more series this coming week and also next month so to have like the new stuff come in and you see like a podcast. You've never heard before you know. Perhaps something i would enjoy. I'll ali more happy to be happy to listen to it. I go buddies recommendation. Engine is as good as netflix's i'm sorry Agree no body has a recommendation engine as strong as that. Fleiss bear so confident in their recommendation. Engine that they rolled out. Play something for everybody this week That is confidence in your in your algorithm that i'm gonna hit a button and it's going to randomly pick something that you're confident. I'm going to enjoy. Ooh that's hubris. That's that is that is a level of competence in your algorithm that as a software engineer i could never have. I could never have that kind of confidence yet. I know i'm no. They're all recommendations that i'm seeing with exceptions ones. That you mentioned are are spot on. Yeah and so on. Yeah if they're able to take your tv and movie recommendations and start recommending podcasts. Because i'll tell you if there's a couple of circle podcasts out there that that they might want to like they do an episode to episode thing like After stranger things i think is the name of the the the companion series that they did where they kind of a test. Stuff as the show went on In season two maybe It would make sense able to. It'd be able to use your watching habits to know that you wanted to watch that. And that's really scary. That they know what you like they. It's i mean it's like dead on like dead on accurate it's so you can't you're right amazon. You can't even touch that. Yeah i other. Amazon's is okay. But i get a lot of. I can a lot of stand up comedy which is accurate But not necessarily stand up comedy from comedians that i would enjoy right right So like there's genre is right but their details are wrong but net flicks. Netflix's knows too. I mean netflix knows the send me an email when jimmy cars got new content. Like they've got that down and so if they could put put that to work on external content. i think that'd be a good thing for them and for the viewers now definitely abs- absolutely agree to with the on that one hundred percent so we'll see what happens next few weeks maybe few months. I don't think they're going. They're gonna probably put this out. I would say within the next couple of months. Maybe six months maybe less than the end of the year. Yep yep yes. We'll definitely Will definitely Keep an eye on it and if anything comes up we'll definitely keep you apprised on the last of elements other news. This week uber beat beat estimates on a top line. Dramatically improved its net losses in. Its first quarter but missed on nephew. Shares initially gained after hours trading before dipping more than four point. Five four four point five percent. So here's what Did versus the expectations. The loss was six cents versus fifty four percent expected. This is a contest. According to a consensus of analysis survey by refinitiv revenue two point ninety billion dollars versus at three point. Twenty nine billion dollar expected overall uber's net loss was one hundred eight million dollars so to say they feel. This is a major tremendous improvement from nine hundred sixty eight million dollar loss in the fourth quarter twenty twenty but that was largely due to a one point six one point six billion dollar game from the sale of itself driving unit. Eighty uber is operating loss. Was still hyper quarter. At more than one point. Five billion dollars uber reaffirmed his expectations retry reach possibility on just to the eib up basis by the end of this year is adjusted. I lost was three hundred. Nine million dollars which improved by ninety five million from the prior quarter so does don't know what that means if for earnings before interest taxes deep deep appreciation and amortisation the company says mobility take said it's mobility take rate declined about twenty percent second quarter. Cfo nelson chai senator call industrial quote for remainder of the year. I will remind you that delivery gross bookings your ear comparisons become tougher as we continue to face significant. Forecasting uncertainty in predicting post reopening consumer behavior ceo dara cars well as a mouthful and my tongue tied already. Ceo darah cara shari name. I apologize said on a call with investors quote. Were falah seeing. The light of the end of the tunnel. Uber is starting to fire on. All cylinders as more consumers are riding with us again while continuing to use are expanding hillary offerings in an update to show orders.

He's optimistic. trench accelerate. Going forward uber said as approximately three point five million drivers and careers on the platform up. Four percent quarter over quarter but still down twenty percent year over year or so with this pandemic happened in january or mit lake. Early january twenty twenty two. Now you know things are improving. Uber is more on a An uphill battle to get to get more to gain more gain more revenue now. It's important to note that uber has never been profitable this the fact that they came in At a hundred eight million in a net loss is actually pretty impressive for this organization who i seems to just write blank checks. I don't know who i have. No idea what they're operating expenses could possibly be other than some software engineers some sales guys and the drivers. I don't know what they're operating expenses are but they write a lot of checks They spend a lot of money and it is appaling to me. Yeah and also to their more. From what i understand. They're they're more. Akin akin to uber eats bread services than the actual than actual drivers. And they just they just purchased postmates botham. Yes so so there's expense there And yet still only one eight million right. They spend a lot of money on postmates and yet no problem that it's a good sign it. It's a good sign maybe someday overly profitable or one day. The sky will be pink. Good analogy i. I don't know if do you enjoy that. I be okay over that. I'm gonna be alright. The it's the way the way it is delivered it just in the early days of f five live before it was called actually long before it was called that One of the topics that one of our co hosts at the time was obsessed with twitter. Because they didn't have a business plan they they'd get these more than billion dollar investment rounds like. Why do people keep putting money into this. They don't have a plan to pay you back. What are we doing and uber seems to be operating under the same model of. We're not really worried about ever paying our investors backs along as they keep writing us blank. Checks baby would twitter a decade later. Still hasn't paid its investors back. Well maybe an probably goes on twitter. Maybe when initially had the idea of not i'm sorry. Let me back up. Maybe with with the the concept buber. They were thinking why pain a taxi. Why are we waiting for a bus. Why don't we have our own. You know we can have their own. There have drivers have drive their own cars. Not worry about you know paying any fees or gas or n dealing with. Because i i worked on a project in the taxi space beef just before uber and there were all these weird because all these weird rules with taxis like drivers rent the cars From the from the taxi company And then basically just keep the money because they can't be trusted to actually pay the taxi companies back so so credit cards taxes. Were a possibility on how to make that work. But then they at taxi companies are essentially. Dispatched hurts there because they don't actually make money on transactions because they don't trust the drivers to pay them and they've got these weird zone that you're not allowed in and out of and so is all very strange and and we said why why not get rid of all the zones and stuff let the drivers go to a place where they know people are because they know better than you do right. People are right. Has they're out on the street. They know that you may know that is happening this week. But you don't know about Showstoppers at at a at the win right. So we're going to need people at the win. You don't know about that. The drivers do right. And now this uber's whole pitch was here all the problems with taxi companies. Exactly and so. Let's figure out how we can eliminate most if not all of those problems and they did they all the holes and plugged them and and made a service. I mean when we go when we go to vegas. How often are we in a taxi. Maybe once a year and then only if things have gone really sideways but what we live. We live the entire week in number and left. Yup yup i was in two thousand eighteen. I use uber exclusively. Twenty last year were twenty. Twenty one twenty twenty. I did use over. Except for one time that i had to get a taxi because of my injury and and the uber i was waiting outside the nbc and the the got waited for a lift told followed him. He called me. He says whereby. I told me that he was on the other side of the parking lot or way on the other side of convention center and after about ten minutes like screw this so i waited for a taxi and surprisingly the taxi was Was a pleasant. So i was at one time. I use a taxi but also for those going in vegas. When if you're going to vegas for any vacation not necessarily see yes. 'cause it's packed but we always say do not use a taxi because it is extremely expensive expensive so i recommend we recommend unless it's the time of day you're going to a hotel from the airport which case you can guarantee you get it for thirty nine or something like that which yup yeah when when surge prices are in effect vegas can get real expensive on over. Yes so you're going to vegas. We're traveling probation. Or what have you. Whatever event celebrating birthday. What have you have both over. And lift installed Yup get if you've never used one of them before get a discount code. Yup if you need one message us on comes to. I've got discount codes for both here But yeah it's they. They walked into a space. That was chaotic. Found the chaos and worked around it and made better service usually but but they can't figure out how to make goes back to go back to the question. how the money. But i mean. I don't know i don't know who there's any major at there's any dusters in it. I haven't seen anything recently. Or there was any major investors in uber. Everybody every every major investors got money over. Okay if everybody's just like twitter. Everybody's hoping that one day they'll figure it out there so much potential the cab companies are so profitable right and yet can't figure out how to do the same thing and but of course uber is fighting all these legal battles right Got california that's trying to put out of business and now now the federal government's trying to to enforce the same thing that almost screwed california up and so you know they're constantly fighting these these legal battles that don't make it less expensive to operate so i would love to not going to best ebbets going there but he brings a wall. That's not making money than any to Change up your chained up your investment investment. That's right other news week. Our there's been some rumors about the foldable about affordable iphone iphone But there is a new one that has a little more weight to it Ming show apple analyst. Ming choko told busters that apple plans to launch an eight inch affordable iphone by twenty twenty. Three there's some deserve from documents seen by those seen by gadget and an article from macrumors. The report is based on a quote industry survey. Excuse me predicts that apple plans as hell. Fifteen twenty million units in two twenty twenty three got coup said he already reveal the possibility. They folding unfolding iphone in march but his latest report has more detail on suppliers protects that q hd plus flexible oleg will be supplied by samsung display while the d d. I display controller. Come from sam. Samsung country also knows that apple will use will use silver natta wire touch tech supply by t p t p k quote because of its several advantages over. Samsung's why octa technology and. I asked this question before and i know there's the the apple apple fan boys are going to get get this but for life of me. What is the need for affordable phone. Why samsung and that's it. Unless missing another wacker it depends on what we're talking about a foldable phone because my boss got the surface duo there's the one from wa wa that's more like the samsung and there was at least one other that was bouncing around I don't particularly like the way the screens look and work on the single screen Foldables maybe someday they'll get it right but that gap down the middle Now it's you can tell it's a different screen is very different. Technologies interludes various different makes it look like a non premium device. And so if you're spending a look at samsung if you're spending eighteen hundred dollars on a phone would look and feel premium and that does not so. That might be why apple's been holding off. They might also have been holding off to see if there was actually demand but is it. The isn't there though demand for affordable. I don i mean affordable phone period. I mean again. I know that apple be able to amboise and again for those who wanna get it. I'm i'm happy for you. But i just don't see the consumer need overall. I have not seen it in the wild wild people. With the exception of very small fraction of people you for instance maybe but but as far as like as overalls that overall. I've seen people have seen people iphones. I've seen people samsung galaxy galaxy phones. I've seen the s series series the night but night like at people i see a need or from from anymore majority of the people in this country and the united states. I mean i imagine overseas different but To see there's a really a high need for something that has a lot of flaws case in point the screen case in point the quote unquote the the the flexibility of the devices as we all remember the first samsung galaxy fold yup. Who who was it in gadget in the first week. No it was no. I think it was Hitter in gadget verge reported one of them broke the somebody somebody yeah and it fell apart. Royal fast yep Which is part of the reason why. I'm not a big fan of that particular technology. Why went with the duo mum because it knows what it is Right it's not trying to be tricky. Make you think there's a full screen in the middle. There's not a different screen. It's very different. It's very sad. You'll hate it. Because i do i. I understand the idea of being able to put a tablet in your pocket. that concept is theoretically solid. That the technology's not right. So i don't know because you know eight inch is of an ipad mini right that you can then put in your pocket without wearing cinco jeans. It's an attractive premise Why does it work out that way in reality. I don't know. I kind of like the side by side. Snap personally but you know it all around into. It's an a niche product. Eggs on it is not intended to be an everybody everyday product. The needs product. And that's okay because sometimes you need weird products like at. Apple's never been afraid they've never shied away from the weird look at the newton right stupid product But for the report his report saying that they plan to sell fifteen to twenty million units and twenty twenty three. I thought they were going to sell a lot of the iphone. Minis right that was that was a rope calculation. Exactly right but also to a yeah the the. I don't think this is a really. This is going to be. But i think that with this photo tone. Samsung whomever is going to be a fad beyond. It's not gonna be there you go and abram and i said it. We made that exact comparison when they first started common about. We said three d. tv. That's these are. These are modern three d. tv's they'll be popular for a couple of years and then we'll never hear about him again at least this time nintendo got ahead of the trend with the three d. s. They took the past trend and the future trend and put them in one product was able to move past it holding one. Also look how and look and look. How wilder selling to continued. I'd still. they're still the best selling console of all time. Okay i was thinking where is thinking of the sweat related reason. Yeah across second okay. Yeah so i will this. Is this something that's going to have to again. We're going to keep a close eye on that too all right next. Up shipments of chromebooks reached twelve million.

The serta's machine reduced the sheer is also the first chroma west of bicycle Displaying brian lynch kelly alison results. Confirm the transmission of books into a mainstreaming computing mainstream computing product which is true because ever since the panic started in own. Go back to school and working from home kids at home you know. That's been the the tool to have For internet usage not necessarily pc usage or mac usage but internet usage. Unless i think those two statements don't mean the same with you one hundred percent I believe that for education which almost certainly is where one hundred percent of this growth comes from. It has become an essential part of the day But i don't think that makes the mainstream computing product. You're right. I think i think his analysis is incorrect. I don't think that makes it a mainstream computing product. Now i think it was inexpensive solution to an unexpected and immediate problem Right because i know my daughter newses use my chromebook when she was in school. And you know and again. I don't think that like you and i you know because we have computers so as far as the mainstream i think. Maybe it's kind of two statements. Kind of skewed. I think maybe again dissecting it maybe possibly is leaning towards mainstream computer for education use and not overall use that makes it still makes each product. Brian writing being heavily focused in one industry doesn't make it mainstream literally the opposite. That's okay. I guess i'm it is a very successful each product Which is fine like we were just talking about with foldable phones right if you can find of or create a market great. They have to be. Everybody doesn't have to be everything to everybody. That's fine apple has done in the old days apple did very well not trying to be everything to everybody and the more they try to get themselves in trouble so sometimes. You know being a boutique vendor. It's fine being a boutique product. Line fine and i think. That's what chromebooks arab very successful boutique product. Okay which is which is fine. I mean you know you can get an hp chromebook for one twenty nine If if you're a school district looking for an inexpensive entry into computing for your for your schools for your students one twenty nine device is a very attractive thing. You're you're not going to get. I mean there's the those blue hp. i don't remember. They were like candy colored laptops. I don't remember what they were called. that were one sixty nine running windows ten home. They were everywhere. At s. a couple of years ago escalator to the monorail. That was all branded with them. But yet but still if you're buying ten of them okay. That forty dollars may not make a huge difference if you're buying ten thousand of them that forty dollars device suddenly becomes very important and so i it makes sense. But you're not you're not gonna see them in business all that much right. That's what i mean that's one not and for regular consumer use people are still. It's like sixty seventy twenty ten or something like that for windows mac and chrome. But that's fine. That's not who they're trying to target. They're doing really well where they want to be so good on them. Let's doesn't make it a mainstream computer. No i agree. That's what i think. That's where i'm thinking me thinking as far as a product not mainstream but it's for a general use again for education and people. Don't you know again. You and i working home. You know. we all have their own computers. So i don't think you can actually take if you're using for your for your employer. I don't you're not gonna necessarily need not gonna ask you for chromebook because you can't really do. I mean you can do some things you can do like google sheets and google. Docs what have you. But when it comes on anything android so you can get a full office. Two right right you're right. I think that today at last week. I believe yeah So but as far as the as far as computer power concern. There's no way. I mean you really don't i mean you. There's no way can you cannot do actual labor intensive work. Never exactly their networks and we all remember how well those worked life yup on a scale down operating system which microsoft did try to scale down windows starter edition for net bucks. But this is designed to be lightweight from the beginning so for hindrance space year in Right for this analysts i. This analysts say it's a mainstream computer product. It's not i. I don't i think it's more a successful. Go take product right. It's more mainstream. it's more of a mainstream. it owns a market -cation and that's good. That's where i think. He needs to work on his on his analysis. Little better. are you speaking of chrome and the other spam in a sense. Google on wednesday says offering please more options as a company begins begins to welcome workers back into the officers including some employees the ability from home permanently in december ceo sundar pichai and elsa plan for a hybrid work model with a typically coming into office three days a week on wednesday title employees memo then expect twenty percent of the company currently work remotely company said twenty percent employees could work from office other than the normally assigned to the other four percent working from their normal from their normal office campus. Two days a week. Google was one of the first big companies to let the left. Its massive employee base work from home when the coronavirus pandemic cold. The company won't require employees to return opposite a capacity until timber. This year google last week showed off new features as planned to its roots offices and a post pandemic work environment. They include playable balloon walls. I have no idea what that is standing desks. That conformed provinces of into a workers with a swipe of employees badge outdoor camp style workspaces. I have no idea when inflatable walls are. And i'm just picturing my head of what that looked like. I believe it would look very similar to nine thousand nine hundred fifty s insane asylum straitjackets included right. Matt you're your thousand dollar working from home budget. I for me. I'm unending desks that conform to the preferences of individual workers with a swipe of an employee badge. That's the one that got me inflatable balloon walls. I've seen pictures of google's offices. I don't try to understand the weird things that they do. But does that mean that. You can basically walk up to task. Swipe your thing and the the desk will move to the height that you like it at. What if i don't wanna stand one of. I always want to sit at the same place right. Because i do because i set up a fairly big space but also if you want to sit anyone anyone late you wanted us good around it with the chairs role for him from one side to the other. Very strange outdoor camp style workspaces. I'm not gonna lie. I've been working outside a little bit lately. Other than the fact that the surface book gets real hot legs were bright red the other day under the whether searing my legs but who wasn't wasn't great but other than that. Yeah i i've enjoyed it my my regular work laptop. Is that soft touch. So that's not as big of a deal because it doesn't it's not metal. It doesn't turn into a stove. So i i've been enjoying working outside lately and i kind of want to have a little outside or space So i can get. I get that one. I'm on board. I well. I'm working from home. Still were month. Our company is month to month and a person who is supposed to work at the end of last month. Now they're saying or this month. And also i've been hearing people talk about the other going to look at it each month me personally. I wouldn't mind working outside. You know from time to time. But of course the customers idea with and the other representatives idea with if i hear you know if i need to get loud neighbors across the street and of course. There's always weird noises coming outside anyway. So what the hell enough. But but i think also too you know. Working from home has pluses and minuses but But one thing is concerning is i think now i love. People have said this to me privately. Is that these companies you know. Don't want to they when they have these buildings. I imagine google as well you know. They have the cost the cost of the rent. The electric the the heating the inch back And a lot of companies claim mine. You know he told me privately. You know that who has said that they don't they feel that it's more cheaper. Keep employees at home Where they don't have to pay for because my company doesn't pay my internet normal electric Which i balked about that. Because i'm spending you know i'm i'm fifty fifty down and we're using my internet. You know i mean it doesn't draws power granted. It's only for like eight hours a day. But and i was a horn for dose of speaking outside my winters opening. It sounded like some sort of a success. Noise bigger just got an achievement. There's a. I'll tell you that later. Something a second ago. So yeah so it's like Yeah so my whole thing. Is i agree. I you know i shouldn't be have and also to the insurance as well because when you're when you're in the company it got something happens. The company has insurance. So god forbid i happen to step outside or by go into my kitchen and get a drink and i slip and fall. Well actually scratch that. 'cause see but we were. I was a tda that anyway. But i'm making sure i'm predom- protected up and down This january i. I'm kidding. I'm gonna be i'm going to be like making sure them protection in some shape or form or use that that one but but you know seriousness this company is you know all these companies have to pay for anything practically. They're they're literally getting way saving like tons of money but at what cost. And that's why question lies companies. I mean it's great that rook prominent there was people working from. That's great. i mean. I'm not pleased. Believe me please. I mean i'm not putting my saying that you know. Each person is different innocent. People were home. God bless you and different environments or different exactly as well. You're absolutely right. But i just questioned like everyone. I have dedicated workspace so our working from home is very different than some of our colleagues are working on kitchen tables for a year right. That's that's a very different. Experience is one of the reasons why google was one of the companies that was given thousand dollar allowances to buy work from home equipment Because they were saving a bunch of money not having employees in the office in to have the h back up. All you know All the way there were all kinds of things they didn't have to run. They took that money. They literally gave back to the employees to make their faces better but not everybody has done that Which of course. Unfortunate but But you know if if you've got the dedicated space it's one thing if you're trying to work within your your regular home it's very different because You you know a i. At the beginning of work from home we did a segment on things that you need and one of the things was to carve out space As otherwise you never feel like your work as over. Never feel like you're at work. Right is weird. Combination of there's is no beginning or end to your work day right and that makes everything fuzzy. So my workspace really mice. Workspace is my is my dining room. And and i was concerned when i was working. I actually thought. I'm not gonna have the space you know until there was a little bit of Well we'll just deal with it. Which i did but i'm over. It's over a year now. And it's like there's like i'm and i took about. I'm like in this little bubble. And and i'm upstairs in my bedroom. Which nice little space you know which is great. I love it. it's you know it's my home. You know i. It's my home away from home. You know you know. When i we recorded the podcast and also kicking the central executive producer. You know but it's like mabel to like enjoy it but it's like when you're in your own home. It's like working. It's like you leave from work. You know you're in a different place. An aussie right a different work environment. You know but i questioned. Somebody's companies thinking. You know where. Why they they they choose to. They wanna make their make money and i get that and prophets. What have you. But i think what at. Sometimes i think at what cost. Yeah i think the companies that that are are leaning into the work from home thing. Because i've i've seen over the last couple of weeks on linked in some of the companies. I'm connected with Are giving up their offices. But they're taking those savings that giving them back to the employees own to pay for internet. You know things like let's get you a home office setup the like google early on But the companies aren't doing that or unfortunate. I if you're gonna if you're gonna lean into it you really need to. You can't go halfway is not good for your place. I would love to hear from from out there listening and watching. You know if you're working from home like to your thoughts know your thoughts about it You know how long you've been working from home if you wanna give your name or your company name his name. that's fine. we're not gonna encourage you right when i roll we'll Want to be anonymous. Fine just let us let us know be Gnc weekly dot com slash connect on facebook. g. miller twitter. Or if you wanna damn damn one of us privately and honestly. You can definitely do that as well. All right other top week business this week Sprint and at and t. And others voice. So enticing promotions get new customers and dish boost. Mobile is one of them is not an excuse. Me is promising. Connect news scrubbers to k. Health among other perks the online service lousy chat were a doctor using aarp component. It can also suggest next steps when you're when you're showing specific symptoms boost unlimited plus plan. We'll come with reactive k. Helps primary care subscription which typically costs nine dollars per month. Starting this summer those other plans while the option to add a service for eight dollars per month or one dollars less than you would pay for it. Usually and if i am not and this is a great deal and know get on boost. Mobile not really not really keen on on china. The doctor via this. I'm questioning this. A little bit. Telehealth has become a big business. And we've seen it. We have seen it. Kinda grow during the last. Couple of ceos I m still hesitant to on it or sure off the idea of l. a. i. Powered symptom checking isn't new that's web. Md right but instead of going through a checklist this is conversational style. So for for a lotta people. It would be easier right. They can ask you questions you can answer. Yes or no. As opposed to going through a checklist bat that weird process. It's not great for everybody so there's certainly parts of it that makes sense If you're treating it like web md. I'm i guess you which they absolutely have. But that's for free a symptom checker processes free. They've got health guides for free. They've got popular treatments for common problems. But then they've got the chat with doctor and things like that. My aunt has done telehealth telemedicine stuff because her husband is dealing with dementia. And she's trying to take care of him. Getting out of the house is not always option. So you know this could be a great option for a lot of people and for nine dollars a month to be able to talk to a doctor It's also a great solution for for people who are are limited budget but does it also but also like providing boost mobile with also with hip a you know. It's a boost mobile. This is this is akin to getting netflix's for free t mobile or getting spotify for free because you're an xbox game pass subscriber This is very similar to that. There's no direct connection except that there is a. This is the mobile tuesday's there we go. This is t mobile. Tuesday's here's a free year of mlb tv right. That's all that says so. There's a partnership between them. The high plans are getting it for free. The lower end plans or get a discount on the thing. But it's not. You're not sharing information. That's what i was okay. You're sharing it with a with a medical organization who specializes in medical data. Okay all right. Because i was concerned because when i was looking at looking at it and i was questioning it a little bit. And i'm like no now. There'd be no way that they can set that up. Okay good my concerns relieving okay I'm i'm still super medical. Privacy focused numb by my day. Job has a thing. Where if you do an annual physical or something you can get. They'll put money into a health counter. Mind says matter because because the the health insurance is self-funded which means that the Physical information would go to the company. Nope yep that's where my company does exactly the same thing. I'll let you keep your money. Uh-huh keep my information. I don't. I'm not interested in my employer having my physical results every year. Nothing right not to mention not to mention all the information about you. That's that they know already. So yeah yeah not interested. Good but i'm getting. I'm getting there on these telehealth platforms. And they're certainly places where it makes a ton of sense Okay so this is for you definitely check it out next step. Google on wednesday announced launched be new entertainment hub for android tablets called entertainment space model on his kids. Based apps tweet the hub will include apps for video streaming games in books Says it seen over thirty percent more people starting using android tablets compared to the prior year. Google said in a press. Release on wednesday quote once you sign into your soup. Subscription apps entertainment space will show you your content one place entailed for you and if you wanna share tablet everyone in comic and how their own personalized profile entertainment space absolutely divided by entertainment space absolutely by tab sections labeled watch games and read include youtube google tv twitch hulu google play books. Google play games and others select games. We'll be able to play without download audiobooks lead will be available in the retail entertainment space. We'd be able starting this month. I on walmart owned tablets. Its own right owner on. Its own own way. Yeah okay okay. Make sure exams on this pronounce. It i apologize. I'm doing some research. Good okay. I got a little distracted. Okay the hub will then be rolled out globally on all new and some existing android tablets from novo sharpen up by benefactors so if this sounds identical to cook latifi. You're right it is. It is almost exactly google tv with a different name on it just so everybody knows it is literally built on google tv application framework to going. They just released google tv. Which is all of the things you've just said. So what's the difference oth. There isn't one just the name and this is designed for a slightly smaller screen for touch versus tv. But it's it's literally the same platform so no you're not going crazy. Google tv and entertainment. Space are the same thing. Okay well as you're talking like what are we doing. And i i take a nap. It's i know. I took a nap earlier. How long was i asleep. Where to god. We just talked about this a month ago. Six weeks ago when the new chromecast devices came out. Right ask google tv and then all the android tv has gotten update and replace wi with a thing called google tv android tv. And now there's this thing called called entertainment space. Sounds exactly the same haute is great fine. Thank you for proving me that i'm not insane. On certain listening to that was like a fever dream of of an identical conversation. We just had and this can also probably took into amazon because that was on house exactly the same thing on under money. It's not it's not the same company releasing two different products with with different names. That do the same thing within weeks of each other. Them fairness is google's mo. Google does this crap all the time they've got you know they've got android and chrome os and magenta and they've at a how the hell many communication platforms. So they have on any given day because tomorrow they're going to discontinue another one right and then by thursday. It'll be another one. That's place don't worry. Duplicating efforts is nothing new for them but the fact is all built on top of each other. It makes me feel a little better and something tells me they're going to have this on killed on if you ever see the twitter twitter account Website excuse me. I'm killed by google. Watch this one be next on the on the list used to. We used to keep track of that but then turned into a full time job so we just dropped it. But i i haven't either to keep an eye on twitter account and it's fascinating to see what happens. Well he's been talking. Well the guy that runs. It is also lamenting things as well but but this is see website and see. Things added the past several year Several months to several years about what's been dropped his from fascinating all the products that have been having or had speaking of. Tv's toshiba has introduced new option to choose from. If you're looking to buy a new fire tv they have launched lineup of smart tv. Who built in tv experienced though available in five screen sizes. The forty three inch. Fifty inch brands are already listed on amazon and best buy for three hundred dollars and four hundred and seventy dollars respectively though. They won't be in sock until may thirteenth. Which is a week from yesterday at the earliest The company does not release them yet. Toshiba wall sell fifty five. Sixty five and seventy five inch version of. Tv's in the future. The new big boy The new smart par. Tv's have dinner vessels than toshiba's previous model with an extra with an extra eighteen hdmi and usb ports there before k resolution para by the company's raza breath engine and support vision. Hdr ten Since they run amazon. Fire west feature expect from a fire tv including the ability to view video from compatible video doorbell or on top of wetter watching screen which you can use voice commands quickly chain picture and sound settings as well for instance you can say alexa set making sure nine off set picture mode and movie or alexa set set base of three the voice remote the voice the voice tv come with also gives you the ability control the power of compatible audio video receivers and sound boris. According to a f- tv news the devices will ship with the older fighter tv interface about. They're getting the redesign you ida summer when it rolls out to older model when it rolls out to older models the refresh you. I comes with a new look and a nooses profiles so up. Six members of her household can customize their experiences and speaking profiles. I got my wife is on amazon account so so this is great so i can so i can have my own. She can have hers and everybody wins. Wins it's about time because basically everybody else already supports profiles. It's weird that it's taken this long for fire tv to support it What avs all right and filed this week and we talked Report report last week about Brian selling Yahoo and yahoo and ao l. For five years which was confirmed this week on monday and they sold by believe it was five billion dollars which i thought it'd be less so it's interesting that aol people are still using aol's dial up service which is which again fascinating to me. According to cnbc the number of people who will still use his aol's dollop service is in the low thousands. This is from the contrast to two point. One million people use service in two thousand fifteen. Aol's continuing to make good money from a subscription called damage which offers quote critical products. Were computer security identity theft protection premium technical support and more. Ll advantage reportedly has one point five million customers each paying either nine dollars ninety nine cents or fourteen dollars. Fourteen thousand fourteen thousand nine hundred per month which is showing us a hefty and relatively pass it income stream for the company. So it's amazing in this day and age people a on on on dial up but be you know on on still on. Aol service when there's plenty of providers out there not to mention not to mention if you're looking for computer security as you know Aol's description about security theft or identity protection tech support have you. There's plenty of other south there that are cheap for one second. There's the la z. Computers microsoft has their teachers. That cost nothing. And so why would. I'm just fascinated fascinated that people are going to still purchase things when it's from. Aol like exactly literally from the brand. That that makes you think that sounds scammy right so easy to use. No wonder it's number one That sounds like an infomercial. That's that's not the tagline of company. Who's built on trust. So the idea that people would be spending Spending money monthly money unthank- from aol this sister company to yahoo the epitome of the hack. Everybody on the planet had their information. Stolen from ya Three point one billion accounts. There's like that at trinity yahu gave up your info so and ails the sister company. The company i'd go to for security products agreed. You know i mean there's there's the obvious though not the ones i go to I wouldn't i. Don't personally i our show us to have a have a don't support norton or mcafee right who's had eighteen owners of the last seems like six hours. Every time you turn around mcafee is gonna new owner at. I think the founder went to prison or something. It doesn't matter My recommendation and they've come on as a as a partner for the show recently. Malware bytes. i've always liked them. But like you said the stuff that's built into does it's pretty strong zone for viruses and stuff i mean it's not gonna catch hardcore trojans and cryptic jacker that Which is the reputa- jacker to the reason. Why i use malware bytes but hey well yeah who hears that name goes on security definitely advice. If you're on dial up right now you don't necessarily have to use aol. There's there's companies out there that you can get get service dallas service again. Which the spouse me in twenty twenty one. That is better. We should do better on getting broadband to To all But there's there's companies that you can go go retail to to search for dial up service don't go at. Aol please i i i i had. Aol many many many many many years ago. I use services. I just had the aila have e disad the email for spam. But i have a collection is has. I'm pretty sure a lot of you out there. Watching listening has the has desks but definitely definitely do some research definitely look into in here. Have i'm pretty sure a you. I think i had about a whole boatload they can they can make Make coasters yes exactly for that. Might be one of the one over there Yep that's i have them they also make great frisbees You gotta be careful if you hit someone with lead bright so please be careful definitely check. Keep an eye out you know. For other services available and skip. Aol because there are going to be. They're going fast with that. That is a tech news. Press week for. Friday may fifth twenty.

Sunday Fear and Greed | 29 August 2021

"Welcome to the fear and greed sunday edition. It's the twenty ninth of august twenty twenty one. I'm sean alma zell sunday show where we slow things down a bit and look at some of the stories that grabbed her attention during the week. Let me introduce you to the fear and greed team. I we have a danske adam. Lang is head of operations at fearing grade. He loves the good spreadsheet that man and he's favorite time of course he's tax time. Hello sean mickey. He's michael thompson. The fear and greed produce. He's always cheerful though. Mostly this lakeside. Much even when things going wrong he seems reasonably harry which makes me think there is something wrong with him ally i show and can you believe this. Is al fourth episode. Now of the sunday edition fourth beside someone. Let's keep doing this. Do you know what. I like about it michael. We actually have got a growing audience on a sunday. You're absolutely right actually. And we're seeing that more and more at. I had a number of people reaching out to us online on linked in page on facebook page and on twitter. I particularly like this one from martin who said at this was like an episode of the view public interesting people and topics i am. I looked up the view on. And i don't know which one is your your whoopi goldberg. The view has been at two point. Five out of ten online martin's complimenting you might see people that complement is of course. Paper we know are not no martin. I know in the united mine. But he's my favorite listener right now being very common. Yeah absolutely thank you on. Everyone is welcome to leave messages for us. And we'll definitely try and refer to the good ones and the bad ones will just take on board now dame's gay. I want to kick things off with you today. you remain. Who loves the inspirational speeches. Being an inspiration yourself There was a great interview this week. The james curran. The modern history professor at the university of sydney are now. You enjoyed that chat. It was all a bad. The nayed fellowships ships and speeches in politics and business are really did. I thought it was in that interview. We had this week and it's our think quite missing from always saying amongst political leadership in the country and i think we're saying pockets of a two from business which is really encouraging but our disparately love to say more mature sean. You've got a great appreciation of from your journalism of of writing and speeches on either You cold out casing in. That interview is one of the best. How did you feel about The level of speechmaking industry at the moment well always looks fade out when you look back on it and jfk owen with some of his speeches and winston churchill's great speeches words right in the moment as i are now. Katie had gone watson who is truly one of the great speech artist of all times. I think that's part of it but to your point and this is something that john's actually deed After the show he just went through recent leaders. I'm going to do it with you to name a good speech from recent leaders you go to. You've got to come up with what you think about when you think of these people. So let's start with kevin rudd apology. Julia gillard misogyny tiny abbott cola. Really why answer. That was conservatism. Some of his. He's approach to conservatism. And some of those speeches. I actually think with interesting. The other one. I thought was when he on the environment which of course he black john john howard guns gun control malcolm campbell exactly probably international affairs. But i'm thinking mathematically thematically than a particular speech i mean terminal is a great debate one of the great debaters of all time and sending recent history yet bring a speech dot com. Bring his speech to mind that he thought about county. The scott morrison no car nominate aleida from a fee is a guy who won space stands out for me and that is the then queensland premier anna bligh after the floods remember in queensland back in twenty eleven it was the the way our queenslanders and it was it was at a press conference and the notes from that speech now in the queensland state library and they just handwritten nights there was no spe trotta involved by the looks of it. It was just her and she delivered that. That speech is obviously very emotional. And when i think of primaries that stands out for me as as someone who really sees the moment to be a good later no matter what she thinks of her politics outside of that. That was someone responding to across as well. Yeah yeah i mean. I think jeff kennedy that in victoria at different times real ability to communicate to the general populace. Difficult changes in a why that it which i thought was pretty. Good sean. the one that sticks out from the business community in my mind is ellen joyce and it was during the dispute with the pilots and the wide negotiations and when he granted deflate. I thought i was whether you think it was good or bad. I thought wasn't arresting and powerful speech. Yeah i mean. I remember that. And he took them on and he won effectively. And it's not often that you see business. Laid is like that. Kana grabbed the attention of the population. Now spies airlines we all use them so it's time we've heard i'll enjoy so i think it's quite an incredible individual sort of nine him for a while and sort of in a professional capacity of non him in press conferences or millman cop die di sorts of things with him. He is honestly. The most optimistic ceo are have ever come across he worked rotate dozen. Is it beautifully. Why do his predecessor. Jif dixon was pretty good to her sister. But let me this week. When quotas came out and said we lost two point. Three five billion dollars last financially. That's on top of the two point. Seven billion dollars. We lost the financially before. Sir litz mike around five billion dollars over the last couple of years but the good news way might actually start flying again in december and all the media reports about the fact that they've got four billion dollars in the kitty and frost. The united kingdom north america parts of asia should kickoff in december. Of course it's all predicated on the vaccinations thing rolled out and then he went on decide that no places like bali and thailand and south africa wouldn't be until into next year but everything was about the fact that qantas is going to start flying again when at the end of the first five billion dollars in two years. Isn't that the contrasting point. You know he say you take that spatial that presentation by ellen joyce and contrast that with what we were talking about in politics at the moment this was something that said yes. It's bad his the facts. But this is why we're going and there's a path ahead. I thought it was a really strong speech. From an investor's point of view. Probably this is a question for you. Sean when you have so many companies that i am able to kind of provide gardens prophet gardens for upcoming periods at the moment because there is so much turbulence and silence on nine. What does an investor kind of type then from saying a ceo so optimistic. It does that kind of help to make up for for what they're unable to officially provide. Yeah as you want your ceo to be confident about the future no matter what the circumstances are and you've had a few of that in the last twelve months in even this reporting season companies like whitehaven call which twelve months ago was getting to go on suddenly will be free of debt in twelve months time on the back of higher. Coal prices blackmore's vitamins. Which was really struggling and picked up sows in china. Even places like. I'm ansel and some of these organizations which really struggled a bit. They are predicting they see as project conference. Which i suppose you want but one of the real themes to come out through this whole inning season is they just don't know what the next few months ago to look like. Now compare that to the uk in your pain owning season. That had just been completed down the and wall street which was completed a couple of weeks ago everyone they say as looking beyond covered and they further down the road than we are in terms of living with covert. And it's all about reopenings and it's all about the economy's taking off and all those forward statements they mentioned cave but not much whereas what we're talking about here being three months behind we're still talking too much about covert. I totally agree bread bandou. She was really interesting this week. So he's the boss of will lease and he came out and he talked about how kobe was affecting his staff. So that ten thousand knitting to be double jab doha be inaugurated said they can go to work the stored. So there's a lot of pressure actually get stock on shows because they haven't got the people necessarily or the product coming in to get them on shelves. What i thought was really interesting was as a ceo. He was really focused on these people. Which i think is really good. Because i the bottom line matters but if you pay on happy and i think obviously about a mile down safa i thought mr bandit she this week focusing so much on his people in such an important sector will he should. He should get credit for that. I agree. I think i think that's it's really significant as well because today supermarket workers are probably bane. The unsung heroes of the pandemic. Because a lot of credit guys deservedly to Other frontline workers but these are people and who attorney up every single day and i are being exposed to a huge number of people coming through shops and they just have to cape on turning up every single day stacking shelves scanning groceries and they're putting their own health at risk. And cy i think from the staff perspective it would have been nas to say this really kinda giving them some some credit for doing that and and being focused so i really shy adam you or sale of listed business heliport with staff out incredibly important. It's outside st. I foundation if you guide to serve each other in the work you do together if you're gonna serve your customers if you're going to serve your clients grow you supplies. It's incredibly important to have a team that you work with completely aligned to wear the company's going and bound with a raisin to bay. You know that they feel like i make a difference that they all count. Yep and the wind. I do something well. It's recognized this has been a very very serious sunday edition for us. So i just wanna site loosen up a bit phyllis but get loosened up of net two words. Ziggy switkowski is visit. Not is that not the greatest name in corporate australia to take from me high debate there. I can't think of any any better. So he's he's the guy he's toronto ulster and his chair of nbn and now he's gotten to take care of crown resorts could lock ziggy. But i just want to say his name again ziggy switkowski. It's just rolls off the tongue. Now thanks silly as we are cryptocurrencies. Markle our new. You're going to segue to me with that. But you know what i'm going to take it and i'm going around with it because i do wanna talk about cryptocurrencies and i know i'm opening myself up for this because we to you mock me both on the podcast and affair after the podcast for it. But the fact is and this is what i want to hear from the two of. You sounds like we're being summoned showing. I'm just waiting for the question is i yes give it a moment. I don't own any cryptocurrency. I don't think i will ever in any cryptocurrency. The reason why that is kind of in the news this week is. Bitcoin has had a good wake at shut up pasta. Think fifty thousand. Us dollars at one point and then dropped back. It's volatile the other thing about cryptocurrency. The pull it into the news this way. Have you ever heard of kaduna sean. The currency i've heard of it. I know nothing about about and adam on the sime. i'm is it. Kim cod donna. Yes that is exactly right. No that is completely wrong The the the fact is that is the third biggest cryptocurrency. I know nothing about it. Is that new like this week. Now it's been around since about twenty and it's it's kind of been moving up and moving up and moving up and if you believe the hot about it. Apparently it alive taika therion as the number two cryptic behind. Bitcoin tonto invest mickey for juhasz. On it remember. That was a couple of weeks ago. There was that research going around that one in four. Australians yeah either owned or intending to buy crypto crypto on. I just think that that's highly over egg. They'll just aren't. I don't believe we actually tested it. And i'm setting myself up for another scientific linked in paul Good and i'm testing my in theory here in that theory is that that cryptocurrency invest is a kind of like cross fit enthusiasts. That does not many of them but those who actually do it a really vocal about the results of the poll. Basically said that sixty percent of people who responded to it darned have cryptos part of their investment strategy half of them because it's too volatile the other half because i just like me and locked the two of you darnall enough necessarily about it about twenty five percent. Reckon i've done their homework and are investing. And scarily fifteen percent are investing purely on guesswork. Wow which to me is actually shocking that you would that you would make that. I mean if you're looking just at at normal equities you wouldn't be working on on just guess or just taking a punt real rain warrant warren buffett's one who has always said in his eight. Oh nearly ninety years now that you invest in staff you understand so he bought into newspapers many easy guys. He 'cause he understood. Newspapers had the loudest voice in the lane is invested in banks. He's invested insurers. he's invested in. Railways is invest in jewelry stores. He's big thing. Is i understand why i understand with demand is what you're talking about with crypt is in sipho me. I don't see they use case. I don't understand why there's value there and cycle equities to you if you don't digging up on all say the assay the value in that but there's a bunch of other particularly the biotech spice which i just signed onto stained and so what. He bought stuff that you don't understand adam. Could you ever see yourself doing enough research to actually understand it and get on that atom atom. Etemaad is already got a spreadsheet. That's that's just a good way. Cain for adam to enough research. I probably still would invest. I my to sort of broad concerned with it. There is the prospect of regulation like actual banks licensed institutions getting into this market in an international intellectual. Sense as one two. There's a big competitive falls that's potentially on the horizon. The second one is this many of them and it's evolving all the time. I just died. No which one can win. Even if that market does come into play saudi appoint markle around katana. I know nothing about it the theory. I'm very little bitcoin early. No more about it. Because i've heard so much about it. It's like a spectator sport but to me it's one of those classic scenarios where evaluation of the crypto currency is based. You know what is worth is based on what people think it's worth and i can't get the fundamentals together under to understand or invest in their on fundamentals. Stop looking marco. I think this is where we need to end it. E gotta get off. This whole obsession with cryptocurrencies enough. While last thing. Before i lose lose control on relishing my my brief moment of control behind the mark fun last week i talked about the things that had gone. Well because people were in lockdown. Two that i mentioned coming up during the the way that have now obviously gone Stan streaming subscribers are up. Dan murphy's liquor. Sales are strong so people are watching morte that drinking more alcohol. The two of you telling fibs last week about how much you guys are. Drinking to sean. Well i apologize. I'd like to apologize to the listeners. For that little rain there. Well don michael north wing. That's it for this morning sunday. The twenty ninth of august. Markle adam. thank you for being parliament of it. Thank you thank you sean. I'll be back tomorrow morning with the regular edition of the year in grade. I'm showing elma enjoy sunday.

I posted something yesterday. I'll just read it. Because i wrote it last night in real time. Put this on our facebook page every night before the next mornings workout. I send a text to my trainer. Michael petru i send it early around six or seven. Which makes it ridiculous. And i say go to bed. I need you fresh in the morning for my workout. Don't be late. i need every minute of it. It's a little joke between us. So tonight a senate later than usual at about eight o'clock he's sent back. I don't wanna go to bed. He always says. Oh by the way. When when i he always is on my way because his big thing is drink more water get more sleep Stretch more and that's his. You know that he throughout the course. Today's always drink water. Get more sleep so in order for me to get more sleep. He has to go to bed on time and getting to bed on time has always been a struggle mom. But i've gotten i've gotten better not perfect. I don't claim i am. But i'm better than i used some nights i step two or three or four and then i'm in here on an hour or two asleep and i'm coming in and that's not. It's not good for your health but anyway so that's our running joke. Go to bed petrie. And so last night he he's never we always goof. That's what we do. And last night he said i don't want to go to bed at night at all. Honestly it's my last night with l. That's his daughter. She just graduated from high school and she's offered texas a. and m. today and he said it's my last night with l. She leaves in the morning for school. And i said you know what. If we had more dad's committed to raising and loving and supporting and teaching their daughters and sons would be better off as a society.

I remember your truck driver. If i remember correctly no sooner i owned a barbecue barbecue restaurant. Yes yes yes. I do remember. Yes ramon just patriot barbecue. I remember well. I remember when i closed my business in in Twenty nineteen just walked away from it. it was. You know sixty six years old. It's time to go but i'm i'm back in the business now. But i'm working for somebody that's not here there. I wanted to call you because You know this stuff. That's going on in afghanistan What what what is amazing to me. Michael and i wanted your take on this and now hang up and listen to you Twitter obviously has stifled president. Donald trump completely. He's not allowed to Tweet but the taliban if you go on twitter you can still see tweets from the taliban and i was just wondering if you would address that it's good talking to you. God bless you. And god bless america my friend i have addressed it and i sometimes see that talk. Show host get angry at someone when they'll post. Hey you know. Just want to ask you to talk about so. And so and i did yesterday. I'm fully aware we do five hours of radio day. I don't expect anybody to be able to listen to all of that have addressed it. And i think you've just addressed it as well. There's nothing else that needs to be said. The taliban can post to twitter. The supreme leader of iran can post to twitter. Donald trump was d platform. That's everything you need to know there. There is nothing that can be said on twitter behalf. After you get to that point. Twitter is made up of the type of people who if we were overrun by our enemy would wonder what happened when they were part of the problem and continue to be. You know what i'd like to do we. We've got some got some calls on And i'm going to take a couple of those. But what i'd like to do is i talked about my friend. Michael petro in his daughter headed off to. Am this morning and that is. That is the moment my friend ray cinco which just sent his daughter off to arkansas and his son parker his daughter kennedy off to arkansas for her first year and his son parker off texas a and m. for his second year so i have a lot of friends who are sending their kids off to college. They're not kids anymore. They're adults at this point. I got that. But i still think of him as kids. Because i've known needs all these kids since they were little bitty and I was talking about you. Know how it's it's kind of. It's it's a lump in your throat moment but it's also a very proud moment because you have accomplished something you've got to the point that they're ready to be independent. You did your job. When so many don't but i also want to honor those folks who are sending your kids off to serve in our military and what i'd like to do is take a couple of calls from moms and dads. Your young one boy or girl is leaving to join the military in the coming days weeks. Whatever you you've got the news when they're going maybe they'd just graduated high school or maybe they just signed up but you know it's a little emotional but you're also extraordinarily proud. I'd like to take a couple of those calls. Seven one three two one two five eight seven four seven one three two five eight seven four and the black line is seven one three two one two forty seven forty seven one three two into forty-seven forties black line and the mainland seven one. Three two one two five eight seven four was on this day. Nineteen seventy seven. The voyager two space probe was launched carrying with it a golden record of sounds and images representing earth. Chuck berry's johnny b. Good there's not a navajo chant. His bagpipes from azerbaijan. A wedding song from peru. It is eleven billion miles away. Still going like thelma and louise over the cliff.

Interview w/ Matt Rollins of Anchor Bats - Episode 101

"Nine plus presents the baseball together. Podcast with your hosts blackjack brad and kansas city. Little big berkey blue eyes and now baseball together. Welcome to this week's episode of the baseball together. Podcast baseball family. I am brad per usual. Joined to my right by our guy. Brig heo heo alright. Well so we're going to do something a little bit different this week than what. We've i think we've done this once before. I don't recall the top of my head but anyway we had an excellent interview with matt rollins of inker bats. And it's a little bit longer than what are episodes typically are so. We thought that we would just go events this week. And we're just going to send you straight into this interview because we did not want to rob you of any of this conversation so here. We go matt rollins anchor. Bats right now. Welcome back to the baseball. Podcasts baseball family today. We are joined by math rollins of anchor. Bats were here in the shop. We've got bats everywhere we've got machinery and we're very excited. This is fantastic. Thanks for having us. Yeah no absolutely. It's been great so before we get too much into the bats in the business and everything we like to give all of our guests color rundown little baseball thing for you Or just rapid fire. Random questions most are baseball related others or not ready. Yeah a little nervous so first question. We ask all of our guests. What is your quest. Make a difference now. I would say that. Like i mean. At the end of the day we can do bats. We can do whatever we want to do but live short. Make a difference in whatever you to awesome. I that might be the best answer. Yeah being cut it in the end. No thanks for joining us. Question to matt. Is your favorite color. Blue blue is a specific shade of blue or navy guy or maybe a little bit in between navien royal I dunno group. I enrolled any any kind of blue any anybody that all right. What if you could make a bat. Out of any nontraditional would so forget ash. Maple even birch. Yeah what would you make a bat out of man. That's a great question There's some i don't even know the like the like the the actual name of it but there's some would in hawaii this like really really awesome every once in a while they'll do it with like specialty guitars e i would think something like that and just keep it keep it a very natural look Scott of a rosewood look to it and so often look it up. But i didn't think i was gonna ask that kind. Of course the actual species name of a lot of good figuring natural figuring. Yeah yeah. it's really neat. That's cool yeah. It is Next question for you wendy think. Mlb will start allowing players to have personalized customized bats on the field like every day not only be in every day. Never never. I mean anything could happen. But with the current regime ac- they're being absolutely never that it would take place. I think it's gonna take a major cultural shift For anything like that. Start to start taking place on us when we started to say anything I can say anything fun. Mlb immediately shuts down. Rob manfred shots. A does like the. I thought yet right. That's all right. You're a celebrity guests on a game. Show what is the game show. I would say i would like it to be jeopardy. But i would lose Maybe wheel of fortune. I'll say will the force. And i grew up watching both of those so a little bit of sentimental value. But you know. I like that. But i would also be down for like amazing grace or something like that. Okay if that falls in the technical game show category but that would be fun and you can win a million bucks. Beat a million blocks exact also have only driving force just the money two car garage jason. The morning yeah absolutely so which pitcher current and they'll be pitcher. Are you going to take yard You know like that's a tough question I would like to say someone throw in really hard just flat yet because that gives me the best chance. Maybe after seen a couple pitches to look up and square one up. But maybe if that's not the case I would say not. I could do. Okay which happen. You know he throws pretty straight. Yeah he throws hard. You know wisconsin for the for the most part for sure And then if not maybe a guy like hendrix with chicago. Yeah like. I think i could handle him. Are i think most guys are taken hendrix. Here are these days anyway. Yeah saw opening day and it was. Just i dunno. Mom knows most time. He has more movement but he was pretty flat. Yeah that's good so all right. If baseball was an ice cream what flavor would it be. I would say bonilla because it's pretty bland. Yeah unfortunately so. It tastes good. You know it does the job you know you get full from it. But there's not too much swagger anything out there with it so i would just go vanilla refreshing hot some yay. Listen i love to eat it every day but you know it's not extreme by any sense and you know my favorite flavor math. Maybe that's why. I like baseball in our last question. We have for you matt if we want to know what milestone in baseball's future do you want your basso seated with that's another good one I would say one of two either it to be used by a if there ever is a guy that hits four hundred again That would be really cool. So i think that would be you know a wholesome one You know you gotta you gotta god's hidden a lot of home runs. It gets a little bit more notoriety as well. So you know if somebody Challenges bonds with with you know making a run at it. That'd be cool as well. So i kind of one extreme to the other like either a guy and a lot of blood bombs and A guy that goes you know. Four hundred for the year amazing. You think we'll ever see four hundred. I don't I mean well. Maybe if if the games mentality starts to change a little bit from just you know Exit low and launch angles and a lot of the stuff that this with today. And i'm not against any kind of technology is being utilized. But it's i think it's taken away from a lot of the game In gaza are maybe more concerned with like what a spin rate. You know what was my spin rate today rather than like. Hey you lost the frigging aim so yeah just figure out that kinesthetic fill of what you were doing before you knew what a spin rate was and i think. I think it's a little bit of a learning curve right now. That players in organizations are going through Yeah that's that's another long topic but organizations have really started. We've noticed that even just in our outside but kind of inside ability that we've had with a game just so much has taken place because we get asked a question will like. Hey what can the exit the be off of one of your bats. Her mike. i mean you're the one swing you know like there's stronger you yes. There's a lot of like questions that were being asked that we were never asked for So this is an interesting dynamic for for certain you know for sure. Yeah and we have some follow up questions about that specific stuff. We're going to get to that baseball family. We're gonna take a quick break when we come back. We'll continue the conversation. If you're anything like me you wish you could read more.

Welcome back baseball family. We're going to continue our discussion with matt. Rollins here is the owner and founder of anchor bats and matt. We have a bunch of questions for you. i mean. Obviously you're in a two car garage. This is your entire production facility. And how long have you been doing this. My dad started. You know i would say kind of messing around with it like we knew there wasn't any like trauma period of light. Hey let's see if we can do. It was more like we're gonna commit to it or not you know so we committed. I quit my job. Relatively abrupt of from the outside and people were like. Oh my gosh like would you quit for months in process of of kind navigating through what it would look like. He kept his for a while. And then we figured it all out to you know to a degree and But we're going on our seventh year. this will be our fifth believe of major league baseball approval And you know each year. We're getting a little bit better donated in a little bit more. So now does the process is it. What are you dialing in is it. The production line is the marketing capability efficiency. You know all of the above. I personally did not know the science that was gonna come along with making a bat Not that i thought it was going to be easy that we've spent more than i would like to admit on trying to figure out like finishes and was the hardest finish this out. There was going to make the bad the safest. What kind of products can we implement. That are legal But yet make the bat. Structurally stronger So there has been a lot of sauces this kind of came along with with making a bat and it was two years before we realize any of that was even going to be necessary. So as we grew and as our name started to sorta you know pick up a little bit Internally we knew we wanted to be a high quality product and we could have stayed in another lane and been fine with where we were but by wanting to be a top quality product. We you know we had to figure it out. So what lane Elaine of perception really. And you know reality Even though some of the things are tough to measure but of being you know the best battle in the market to be something to where people were like not only. Hey i like this brand. I like the direction i feel like. I'm part of the community But also man they make a really really good product like the best product and you know when your customer base start swearing by. You're the best out there. Then that's the kind of word of mouth that you know does good. Yeah for sure slut lane did you come out of you said you transitioned that mindset. Yeah well i mean we thought we were already making a really good product. And then we had some pro guys say You need to work on x y and z in the initial was the kinda ally. Hey what are you talking about like you know kind of blow up a little bit and then it was like hey you know if we're serious about being the best product that weaken the in you know hopefully perceived in the market then. We're going to have to listen and we're gonna have to make these adjustments and figure it out so you know for meeting with botanist a meeting with scientists and with You know chemists that are talking about finished products. And i mean this. There's a lot more to it than we initially had had. Thought there to be on. So do you have like a a proprietary. Finish that you guys used. It's like specific to you. Yeah i mean we definitely use a product this custom based on certain. You know things that we said. Hey these things need to take place And it needs to be within the scope of being legal you know. We can't insert certain things into the would to make it like a metal bat From from a structural perspective but But yeah we work with a lot of people over the years and have in and it's a continuum we're constantly dolon in the product To make it better and make it stronger and more durable. i mean. it's a wood bat so they could break people will say. How long does this thing in alaska. My last one swing or you'll last forever so it really just depends on where you hit the hit the ball we found that out earlier today Greenville drive seating little bit it was only going twenty miles now. It was not going fast. We we were on a show that There was on national. Tv a couple years ago and they were like. Hey we want you to take bp. It was actually the draft stadium. And i broke a bat. I was like. Please do not put that on. So i haven't swing a bat like that. They were like. Hey if you can hit one out and mike. It's not like yeah. Okay tell a dog sit who it sounds like crap so So you know. I'm amped up is seven o'clock in the morning freezing cold because march and it's like a cold spurt and Took two bats with me. Fortunately and like halfway through the round ended up and let me get on my hands and snapped it. Cut yeah happens. That's awesome so. I got to know what is the process like. What does it take to get the bat in the hands of major leaguer. His that's a great question and it's a little bit different for every company For us this is word of mouth. we go a little bit more of a not in a weird way that like developmental of a relationship We don't really service too many guys that i don't know And it's not like a prerequisite of like hey yet personally speak to me and go to dinner or gave before make your bat but you know this is an industry. This unique from the perspective that Gazal swing multiple companies. May be in the same thing he's like. I mean crap even harper. He'll swing three different bat. Companies and one game Monas- not every every game. But in a i've i've seen him before us asked us victims and use another chandler all in the same like game and you're like what in the world so that's not very common but there's not much loyalty We don't have any contracts with our players or anything like that so the loyalty typically only exist when there is money changed but we've tried to be diligent about forming relationships with guys that you know mountain kinda thing is like if i can see the player going out to dinner with my wife and daughter and myself you know after a game or something like that. Then that's the kind of guy we want is a guy that like. I can't have my family around because they're a loose cannon Typically even steer away from that yeah loan so it is being curated on both sides right. The snow you allergies yeah and then quality of the product. Yeah and then you have the agent that usually comes in between at some point during that process of like. What are you doing talking the player directly. You're supposed to be speaking of malian. it's a it's a little bit of touching. Go with you know certain certain people that are out there so it really is very intriguing and that's a lot of nuances that i had no idea you know i mean i played the game in understood like so i can talk. You know i can talk with guys and relate to them but there's a lot of interesting things that take place at us like man really. Yeah so yeah. so Mentioned bryce harper. Was he the first guy the big to use your batter. Who is the for. So honestly it's this. It is a miracle of god's story and my wife and i and our daughter happened to be at the game. No idea he was gonna be used us zero really zero idea and we were. We had pretty good seats and we were like ten. Twelve rose back maybe i i about. He came out with another company. And i didn't like i wasn't there anticipating him to use our product second. Ab he comes out using us and at that point. I literally like i am not kidding. Like assorted sweating. My heart was going like a thousand miles an hour when i played. I never got nervous and you some good nerves but like never like this. And i was literally. I can't remember everything that i was praying like. Dear god please. Don't let him break this bat. I don't care is a serial if he strikes out hits you know be gravy. It's home run but like just do not let him shatter bat for our first ever major league official plate plate appearance but a mess. A pretty big name to have as your first. Ap so it was. It was one of those things where you know. We kinda gave that internal fist pump of man. This is crazy. How did you find bryce harper headed by a bat for took it up to the plate though social. Media's how guys reach out they'll reach out and say looks like you make a good product like to get a few. That's not how it always goes by harpers one. He's not afraid to reach out to gaza and talk and i like him I mean i don't have like a best bud relationship with by any means but you know he's a guy that will say merry christmas in a so. That's we're not like his go-to company so let me know like he's a pretty decent god to reach out to you. Know me and of frigging two car garage and a merry christmas awesome. Yeah so yeah especially with guy like bryce harper gets a bad rap for being a bad guy. Yeah net in. That's you know that's kinda the you know the guard that you go into conversations with certain players and then oftentimes guys that have kind of bad rap or the the best guys in the gaza. I'm like no one knows who you are out of your cousin and like your second grade teacher or you're the one that's the most difficult to deal with So it it really is kinda of crazy like that. Oftentimes the bigger name gaza. The ones that are com- the most welcoming while So yeah we've. I've found that in the universe. That's my scenario with so for my experience rather so it's yeah it's it's been interesting talking about that. Actually the way over here about like guys are so different on the field had the And then like off the field or so much nicer. Yes so different people. That's really cool. You were sometimes it. Sometimes it's been it's been the opposite for you know city fan favorites and then when you see him as soon as the cameras off. You're like come on man like Don't don't be like that. You know so but you know. I get a business soon. some people take it a little extreme and others not so much so i have a question about the turning models and flair on the knobs and all that all the different ways that you can manipulate the bats feel and performance. How do you like. Where did you start with the shape itself. And what has evolved since well from playing like. I knew what i liked. And i did notice that like. Hey the quote. Professional models are better than like what you would find at a big box store. I just feel better so early on we said will why would there be certain models for pro guys and certain models like amateurs like they all should really good so you know we started with nothing so are kind of idea was less trotta. Have no throwaway models. Let everything be something to wear if a guy picks it up. You're like hey like this now. They might go. they will gravitate toward one. You know model or another of traditional or flare or somewhere between you know end balance or you know some some in wait to overbalanced and it was all those little in a unique things. That players are looking for but We took a pretty serious of light. Hails figure out the best that we work with a couple of phenomenal guys. That helped us from an engineering perspective. Because we're not engineers and they came alongside and we're just like hey we've got our full-time jobs but you know we'll help you as much as we can. And they if it weren't for them we wouldn't be where we are just because of the perspective that you know. I can send him a text at ten thirty and say. Hey i just got this bat. Is there any way we can. We'll spec it out. We'll send it to you can you. Can you help design it out for us In there like spot on perfect with it so you know. If it weren't for those two we'd we'd be in a much different position of where we are right now and we talked about this. Is the math right. These yeah in his. Yeah and it's just from like so when like if a player since about into us and the they won't that bat. Hey we want this bat and it needs to be exactly like this so we send it in and then they can make modifications to it. Because the guys i hate this exact bad but i want to feel more balanced and you know they can do their magic and take stuff out certain areas without changing the profile. And it's kinda like witchcraft. They do it and they're really really good at it and they just they love baseball and they've kind of bought into the idea of anchor and you know what it is that we're doing and they they've been really good to us so sorry. I don't mean on mentioned a couple of times this thing we're doing and who we are and what we're about in this your culture right. You're building a culture around your brand. What is that are there pillars. Do you have a mission statement. Is there. I mean we've gone through a lot of that over over tom With with like help in the direction of people much more intelligent than myself of like. Hey you need to have a gantt chart developed. And i'm like i don't even know what a gantt chart is like you know and and it's just. There's so many things that i'm like. What in the world. But i've always tried to be which this isn't very difficult with the dumbest person in the room so that i can learn from people who've been there and done things really well whatever they're filled might be so you know whether it sells or marketing or production or distribution. You know on the smartest people that will allow you to you. Know to ask questions and learn from them And that's been something that we've you know we've been very intentional about and you know because it's like if this was our end goal of being in two car garage man. That's that's a very big dream so our dream is like we want to be international. We wanna be like we wanna be something this lasting and Even if my dad and art the wants to take it to that point you know we ran on the inception that in the creation of it like if it can just keep going and we felt like it has that ability to be something Globally this is a recognizable name. Mr recognizable logo was a recognizable. You know Company brand that could be out there that people can resonate with so know like a quick like we had no idea she was going to do it but britney al deen or however. They like to pronounce it. She she was wearing. A hoodie headed down to augusta national last night while and posted a picture on instagram and Go reason i knew is because a ton of people were tagging. Hey she part of ankara might just likes the logo. And she's you know she's wearing the product so those are things where you know. I have no relationship with them. So it's not like they're doing a like a friend favor right to wear stuff and she antagon- or anything like that. That was just like her active. Where of what she was wearing all man. Yes so those. Those are the kinds of things that you know. It just makes it to where it's like that little nugget like when you're just tired and ready to be like i'm done with it. Let me just go out and get a non to five that you i can make x. amount of dollars doing and have health insurance and all this kind of stuff people do people have no clue like we've sacrificed everything we we have and a risk that we were willing to take and you know you hope for the best but reality can be not the best for we've lasted longer than a lot of people thought we would and we'd been undercapitalized. Were fighting against people with budgets. You know hundred thousand times greater than ours and you know so it really is interesting to to see that's a little bit of a tangent but there's no like hey this is the ethos of our business or anything like that but is We have certain principles that we definitely try to adhere to but no like stronger sounding mission statement that we're doing good. I actually think that they're often waste time. Depending on the scale of your business well for me like after all. I look at it for five straight days just trying to do some homework that god semi i'm like i don't even know what what is it. This is going to help me make bat better. I'm sitting here. Yeah so. I understand the principle behind it. Yeah exactly where we are right now is not gonna help us be a better business. I like that. that's awesome. I'm big into the names of companies or did where'd you get the name anchor bats so that was one where we did what you're supposed to heart consultant to say. Hey help us figure out. A name Every name of the hundred that they came up with was just horrible. And you know that went on for probably a couple of months i like. Hey let's have this exploratory session and let's talk through some of the things you'd like to see in a logo and in a name and all this kind of stuff and then in two weeks will present will dwindle the list down and i will keep going through it and after the first two. Tom's and there's not even a name. This even i don't know what what i'm looking for but not any of this yeah and So there was such a disconnect and the guy's really talented but he just like we just weren't meshing So at that point. My wife is from south georgia. And i said listen by the tom. Because we got get a logo weirdest thing going right By the time we get to your mom's place and tipton georgia which is about five hours away. We need to have a name and she's like we've been trying that for like two months. So how are we going to do that. So we you know basically just started out like with the list of putting certain things together. We're we're we're christians you know as a family and we're like also put something that has like our faith related into it but we don't want to be like the jesus christ back company or anything making it appear that we're using that as a crutch sure Because a lot of times people use things as a crutch to make a crappy product and we were like. We don't wanna do that. But if we can incorporate something. I would like for there to be a logo that whether you're living in japan or australia or greenville south carolina anywhere between luke at it and it's like an international symbol so we were looking through stuff. She's like through the bobble and like around macon georgia which is roughly an hour and a half from from where her mom was. Living anchored kept coming up and by the time we got there. I call my dad and my hair. You cool with the name anchor. He's like that. Sounds good to me so we knew that was it. Yeah so it was a two month. Process ended up taking five hours and the rest is history providence. It sounds like yeah. I mean it. You know it's supposed to be. It feels right. Yeah so it definitely was a thing to wear when we first set it delight to an hour talking. And we're like yeah. We liked that. Let's keep going. And then i would anything about anchor like it kept coming back and then for like ninety miles it kept coming back and then we were like i said let's go. We should take ninety mile tests next time. We come up with something we should you can't you can't go wrong with it and we had like a three year old in the back of the car. yeah whatever. She was at the time so it was some divine intervention of keeping our sanity. While doing that. Yeah that I've i heard an interview with bill simmons. One time he's like something is the hardest part of his income up every concept. I run at what you're gonna do. Everything is you're gonna make money with. It is becoming the name. The right name is so hard between the podcast and other stuff. We're doing with it like absolutely we get like it's some point. Would not that will no longer be anchor but like you some rebranding that takes place and kind of like this was a seven years ago. But you know we've refined who we are and what we're doing so let's be able to bring that into the are forever so yeah so. Yeah it's it's been unique. Yeah so how. How do you compete with these companies. That have bigger budgets and they can leverage all of the testing and all of the new materials. And you know. I mean because you got some heavy competition. Oh yeah yeah no. That's a great question and a tough question is one. We ask ourselves often but at the end of the day. We kind of have an approach. They're right or wrong you know. Just keep your head down. Stay in your lane. Now when i say stay in your own lane and you have to look at what other people are doing. Yeah because it's end of the day. They're the ones that have the money for market research to have the money for a lot of other things so as like well. We don't want to copy them. But if there's a certain shift has taken place. They have the money and the ability via their employees. Or whoever they're paying to figure that stuff out so you know less pay attention Let's don't copy but was pay attention. Yeah so There's a little bit of that this gone on for sure and then you know at the end of the day like it's like hey we're not trying to compete with slugger. Mika million would bazzi year yet. And you know one of the things that i think I'm not well. Yeah so it's just is interesting for some of the people that have been around a long tom that they have the mindset. More so of this is the way it's always been and docking. Get you in trouble is well. Like i'm not saying change just to change. But sometimes changes of necessary and mandated By by the market. Yeah so you you do have to listen And if not you can get yourself squirrelly position you know pretty quote. Yeah absolutely true. Yeah i was gonna ask you a question about knobs. Yeah so boring. Such an important part of the bat yeah. Is there like a certain up. Is there like a favorite thing that you have specifically to make their. Because i see what's at probably twenty up there. Something like that. Only twenty five yeah. Is there like a specific knob that signature to anchor or do you just go with whatever the players wander wherever i mean. Yeah all of the above for me. It's like i won't every bat outside of like a you know like there's one right here that has a very unique flair to it like almost like a no knob and like that's not for me but that was first pacific player and yeah and yet those who very very similar. And that's not one that i would want to use But the majority of every other knob we have. We have five hundred models You know it might be. Hey is this knob with his barrel wasi knob with a two forty-three barrel or is a wasi with an thirteen barrel and like i don't you know like internally in our system that's two models so there's a lot of like little changes that take place. We had a guy that just sent one end and he was like hey swinging thirteen on my goal. We've got an author team. He said the company name. i'll go. yeah we got that one. He's like no oil this custom thirteen. And i'm like we don't have the customer thirteen because you're one that has it so if you want to make that same one you descended into us. We'll check it out. And i mean it was different enough to where we wouldn't pass the test if we sit in ours but you know it's a big company that has like probably twenty versions of that same model And it was at the end of the day like for example like if our thirteen. Don't hold me to this number just hypothetically if it's a point nine five inch handle this was a point nine eight inch handle and the knob you know the biggest point instead of two point oh five inches was like two point three just like little things like that but for a player like the majority of god or like. Yeah that feels different Now i have seen a lot change It felt like when i was growing up and playing that it was like swing a two forty-three or i swing a to seventy one. A p seventy two. They were giving like very like even young guys knew his swing and now gaza are like well. I want one this black matte. Yeah well what model you want. I want the black matte model enemy summary in pros so is yeah there is. There's a there's a major shift has taken place where when we first started. We were so intentional bonner models that you know we probably wasted a lot of time energy and effort with it and then is. Tom has progressed. Gaza like the finish a really good and because they put skin on like lizard skin on the ban changes the knob. Anyway it makes the handle thicker like all these things that like. They're changing already. So it's kind of like i just wanna bat. It looks good and okay. Cool like well. That's why we asked earlier about the players everyday. Experience changing bats. Yeah because they're moving that way cleese. Great yeah if we could see that. Move into bats because yeah. That's the trend. Everybody wants to be a little flashier. Personality comes out. And there's there's some companies out there that push the envelope with their coloring
