Who Are the Real Climate Criminals?

"I have to just have you give us some clarity mark on the disparity geographically. So America is lambasted by the likes of Karl Schwab, the World Economic Forum, Greenpeace, you name it, the guy who worshippers. But which countries in the world, I mean, we have an unbelievable record. I know under the Trump administration, after we left the Paris climate accords, we actually improved our CO2 output after we left that outrageous regime. Who are the real big players that pollute the atmosphere and who get away with it and who seemingly don't care Mark yes, well, great question. First of all, the United States, since the first earth day in 1970, we have radically improved air and water quality, while at the same time improving economic growth and big increases in population. Having done all that, the World Health Organization recognizes the U.S. as among the cleanest air and environmental quality in the world. And this is our success story. And yes, you mentioned Donald Trump. Donald Trump pulled out of the UN Paris agreement and the United States drum roll please Sebastian led the world in reducing carbon dioxide emissions. No other country came close. It was because of our technological innovation of fracking, replacing fracking, replacing coal with fracking, which was a lower emitting, more efficient form of energy and less environmentally disruptive. I mean, you would drill a hole in the ground and then drill horizontally and get the gas out that way. So this was a huge success story. But instead of allowing this to continue, this was all collapsed. And we went from the world for the first time since Harry Truman was president in 1952. We were the world's leading exporter of oil and gas. We had more exports than imports. We had more production than consumption. We were sitting pretty. What every president is Richard Nixon claimed they were going to achieve American energy independence actually happened under Donald Trump. And COVID lockdowns came and pulled the plug on everything. Biden came in and further, you can't say he pulled the plug. He poured the cement upon everything and buried American energy, whereas now their intentionally creating energy shortages. This isn't a side effect. Oh, these energy restrictions. This is a feature of the Green New Deal style, great reset policies upon which they're imposing. And the real villains obviously is China.

Why Harry Truman Refused to Drop the Atomic Bomb

"I love the conversational style that Truman uses here. He says, now once in a while, I'll get a letter from some impatient person asking, why don't we get it over with? Why don't we issue an ultimatum make all out war drop the atomic bomb? And for most Americans, the answer is quite simple. We're not made that way. We're a moral people, pieces are gold with justice and freedom. We can not of our very free will violate the principles that we are striving to defend. The whole purpose of what we're doing to prevent World War three, starting a war is no way to make peace. An interesting point of view there because, again, he viewed the involvement in Korea. He viewed the involvement of the use or non use of the atomic bomb, was that they were trying to avoid a war. And at this point in time, the lord had lived with the world he lived 8 years without any kind of other nuclear devices being used, atomic device being used, and he viewed that as a success. Now he also was very adamant in saying that, look, using these devices would end the Cold War. It would end the communists with me, but it also end hours as well. He understood that the forming doctrine of mutually assured destruction and that was what was coming on.

President Truman Taught Us That the Buck Always Stops at the Top

"In today's society, when you look at politicians, you look at presidents, you look at politicians, you look in Congress and Senate, you look at governors. Is this a move back toward? Is there a move back toward Truman or is there a move away from Truman? I'm going to send to say that there are tend to move away from Truman. Truman believed that your office and especially leadership roles that you were there to make decisions. You're not there to pass the buck, you're not there to blame. You're not there to show an obfuscate what could be. And in Truman's own discussions here, he understood that the buck would stop with him. And if the bug stopped with him, that means that sometimes he had to make unpopular decisions, but yet he understood that was the role of the job. Where would we be today if we could actually have more and more who served this country who believed that it was their decision to take in all aspects to take in everything coming in, but find a stopping point. Political life today has become not as much about the buck stopping here. It's working on make the buck stop somewhere else. Or where can I lay the blame for somebody else?

"Here you had Truman walking in cold to the presidency. No transition, no uptick, no up brief. And it is interesting that the way he talks about this, he spends those first four months. If you think about it, the UN was getting formed, Germany was getting ready to surrender. You had Japan and the battles in the Pacific still going on. And him just finding out about frankly the Manhattan Project and the use of atomic weapon not only finding out about what he could do, but then actually being called upon to use it. And he made the decision. He talks about it in the speech. He said he made the decision to use the bomb so that it was saved in his words and his reasoning was to save hundreds of thousands of lives of not only Americans but Japanese and that's why he used the bomb and now in that matter of four months of becoming president to the time the ending of the war in August in Japan, he began to then have to deal with a economy and a country that was rebuilding after World War II. All of that in. Just a matter of a short a matter of time. That's why I believe when you see the first half of the speech, he talks about what he did. He talks about, you know, the fact that he tried to get Eisenhower up to speed, he talked about the hours that he put in. He talked about. The deals that are coming along that he had to deal with on his desk and how many times he had to shake hands and how many times he had to sign signatures. And you really look at this and discuss it because he makes a point in an issue of making sure that the president's job is a big one. He wanted you to know that it mattered and that he took it seriously. In fact, he makes a point and he talks about his signatures, but he talks about all the government work. And I love how he puts this. He said, the papers, my circular around government for a while, but they finally reach this disk, talking about the president's desk. And this is when he says this. And he said, then and then there's no place to go for ask them to go. The president, whoever he is, has to decide. He can not pass the buck to anybody. No one else can do the deciding for him. That is his job.

Some Things You Probably Didn't Know About Harry Truman

"In this speech, I want to talk about it was given on January 15th, 1953, a lot to see, but it also goes into a lot of what basically service is, is from the people like Harry Truman, who believed that their service in life was from a calling of their upbringing. He was the 33rd president who was born in 1884 and lived most of his life as I said outside independence, Missouri. Most people don't realize that he actually early in his life as he was trying to win best, his eventual wife, that he wanted to make something himself. He actually was a farmer, worked on a farm, got jobs, but he opened a haberdashery in Kansas City. So he did men's clothing. The store went okay. It didn't completely pan out. But it was a story of someone who tried in life and succeeded to appoint in business. But that was Harry Truman. This was somebody who was always trying to do more. He also served in World War I, which made a great impact on his thinking, especially as it came later. He also met the pendergrass family during his time in the army which later led him to his public life as a judge and then also which a judge in that time was more of like a county administrator. And ruler, but also he led him then to what became the United States Senate and how he got to Washington D.C.. So a lot just going on there. An interesting couple of side notes not only he had trouble getting into the army. In fact, he couldn't see. He had a very bad eyesight. Outside of his glasses. And the way he got in there is, again, a lot of great individuals in the world adapt and overcome and Harry Truman adapted and overcome. He actually memorized the eye chart. That's how he actually got past his eye exam. So a lot of stuff that went into Harry Truman's life that a lot of people may not know, he was also very accomplished piano player, played piano in The White House, played piano. A lot of places. It was a very much of an icebreaker, a lot of times for Truman. He was also one last thing before we get into this speech itself. He is the last president that we have had that did not have a college degree. And he

Harry Truman: A Simple Man and the 'Accidental President'

"Always thought when I was in Washington and serving in Congress, I always viewed it as an honor, a privilege. It was something that I looked at as a duty. Not just to myself and my family to do the my best I could, but to the people that I represented. Harry Truman was an interesting, interesting individual. This is a man who, again, if you look at it, you would never say, if you took his background, you would never believe that this gentleman would have become president. Much less a senator or anything else. He started off in his life in Missouri. He lived most of his life in independence, Missouri, just outside of Kansas City. Small lived on a farm, very shy, very socially at times if you read biographies about him very socially and awkward. In fact, there's a book. I went to the Truman library. And he actually kept an office in the trim and library up until the time he died in the early 70s. He kept an office and that office is still left the way he left it the day that the last time he was there. And if you look around, you see the simple realities of a man from the Midwest. You see a simple reality of someone who believed that his part in history was important, but that really he wasn't the important part. He viewed what he did is out of a Call of Duty and respect for a country that he loved.

Are Republicans Sabotaging the Red Wave? With Rich Baris

"What if I told you Republicans might be messing up the inevitable? A lot of people think a red wave is a sure thing, but we didn't fix our elections in many states. And we have some major problems, everybody. And Richard barris is the one that is trying to pull the fire alarm, ring the bell and say the British are coming. Let's see who listens. Richard barris is with us right now, Richard. Welcome back to the program. Aged Charlie, thanks for having me back. As always, thanks good to be here. So the generic ballot is tightening, tell us what's happening and why it's happening. So it is tightening. That is real. So, you know, there are some out there that are having it hold around Republican plus 5 or 6 others that are now down to two or three. That would still look any Republican popular vote. Victory is a gain. I do think it's a foregone conclusion at this point that Republicans are going to take the house. They're so shy away, even with redistricting, they are favored to net if you seats. But I mean, Charlie, with the president as unpopular as he is. And by that, historically unpopular. Since Truman, nobody has been more unpopular this early in their first term as Joe Biden. He is the most unpopular new president in modern American history. Right track wrong track is historically negative. These are all the metrics in the indicators that really matter most to forecasters, economics matter as well and there are abysmal. Now, there's caps because, you know, some districts Republicans just don't have a prayer and just like Democrats don't have a prayer in some districts on normal. Under normal circumstances as well. But what they're doing right now and what we're seeing in these battleground districts is it's real convenient to blame abortion. It's real convenient. To blame the January 6th committee, whatever it is that you want to you want to blame. The fact is Republicans are starting to say things to me like, what's the point? They're all the same.

I got to write that down. That is one of my line is the in salubrious fetid swamp. Yes, indeed. So we've got to have a sense of humor. We've got to be happy warriors is Reagan taught us. But that prediction that I played, even to somebody who's not a talk radio host, somebody who looks at history, dispassionately, it seems like we may have arrived at his prediction, though. Well, it's interesting that Serrano Reagan, who had been a liberal, right? In fact, he described himself as a hemophiliac liberal, a bleeding heart liberal. And we're here talking, this would be Reagan died June 5th, 2004. So this is going on 20 years, almost the 20 year anniversary, I guess, of his death. 18 years ago, this past June. But his life, you know, he saw all of these ideologies, Seb, he had been an FDR Democrat. He had voted for Harry Truman, his father loved FDR. He admired FDR, and then he slowly, through an evolution because of a number of different reasons, among other things, working for General Electric, GE theater and seeing how private enterprise really worked.

"Really, most of the brand was selling to non normal stores. We just rolled out nationwide with micro center. Last week. So we're not in our locations around the country, which is our really, it's really great big national national brand to be in. Frankly, that was a dream of Truman because he's one of their big customers here in Dallas. He's for him and all his friends. And it's sort of a natural fit for the brand. So that's kind of like a mix between like gamer and normal person or non gamer. At a retail location, and we are in some other retail locations that are have nothing to do with gaming. But we are rolling out and all the belong centers that roll out. So the main focus has really been on those environments with a side hustle, if you will, and trying to get another big box retailers and all that. So I am talking to HEB, I am talking to some other brands. Just being in the candy section of normal stores. However, we will try to brand it. So the Gen Z audience who is going to those normal stores will know the brand will want to buy it for that reason. Would you offer different products, I want to dig into the product mix a little bit because I think it's interesting in the places you're in, right? You're in normal retail stores that aren't necessarily targeted gamers, but then you're also in very gamer kind of targeted stores like micro center and blog, obviously people are going to a belong arena to play games. Is there a performance candy, right? Is there candy that doesn't make your fingers sticky or get melt or has caffeine in it so you can play longer. Is this a path to typically asking for him by the way? Asking for himself. Is there a world where we see performance candy? Do you have any, I mean, that's something we've talked about, yeah. I don't know if I can say much maybe. Yeah, it's hard to, I'm the interesting side, a side note about like, for instance, belong centers. What we love about, you know, being a kind of brand new artist, we love to sponsor tournaments. So for instance, we did a weekend tournament with the long, so not only are we like a vendor to them, but we're also a sponsor in a way. So it's sort of like a 360 relationship with the stores if they choose to have us participate with them. And we're open to all this sort of things. I don't know any other brand that would do that. As far as enhancements, obviously we're looking at those sort of things, candy is interesting, we're learning also how to how things are made and all these kind of things. And who makes them and all that and there's a lot there's a lot to learn in those respects. And there is, you know, we do have a younger audience too. So we have to be careful the sort of aspirational ten, 12 year old market who look up to Truman and like the candy and everything. And we just have to be careful in regards like caffeine and all those sorts of things. I mean, the burdens of being Gen Z Wonka, I think that's, can you guys talk a little bit about the software side of it? Because I think that's fascinating. You rarely hear the candy company talking about software and what sort of the future of that looks like. Yeah, sure. So appropriate is our prize rewarding system. So in every bag and every bar, there's a golden ticket with a coconut, you go to the website after you purchase the candy. And then you type in the code, and then every prize will decide if you're a winner or not. We have a big pretty big selection of prizes and it's all legit stuff. And I definitely see it expanding to bigger and better prizes. And many more opportunities are using app a prize call and stuff like the metaverse or NFTs. I mean, I don't know if can you guys talk to that a little bit because I think that's fascinating how something like epic prize vault evolves, right? Like what is this look like 5 years from now or ten years from now? I don't think we've planned that far, but. We set her up as a stand-alone, it could be stand-alone business. So it's sort of I'm not focused on that right now. But I'm always building it to be usable by other brands if they would like to. It's kind of white label for the white labeled. But it has been interesting to figure out how to evolve the software because it started off as a very simple database software that we had to manually enter the prizes, it was very time consuming. We were a home business when we first started. So it's very time consuming to do all that. And then paper crowns came in and did a really amazing job of doing version two, which is very sophisticated. It has a lot of defense in there for people trying to kind of guess code and everything. So and then version three is going to be working on the app right now. That would be sort of more of a gamer experience, like leaderboards and challenges and things like this. We're on checking your codes for the products. And then I would say the next leap, like pretty fast, there's going to be in some sort of metaverse sort of capacity. Like maybe you're going to open your golden tickets in a world somewhere and then you can take that code and go to your computer or enter it in real life and see if you win something. And then get the prize in the metaverse. That kind of stuff. Cool. Yes, you seem to have sort of three concurrent streams happening here. One is in the real world with people going out and buying candy. The second is with the software and the prize fault that you've created and the third is this kind of gaming community oriented play. So how do you see the next 5 or ten years, kind of all your focus is in giving attention to each of those. And from what it sounds like, it sounds like you are really focused on building the community to house the other two items. But what kind of strategies are you looking to employ to build that community to grow? How are you managing those kind of three streams at once? Yeah, I mean, first of all, it's super fun. So we have a great, I mean, we're basically making a fun. We're just making a fun company. So it has to be fun or who wants to do it, right? So we have a lot of fun doing it together. We have a small staff right now, but we may do a seed round this summer and kind of hire some people. But it's really fun. And it really follows Truman's where his life is taking him. So it's hard to plan out 5 years in advance..

"I mean, like I said earlier, gaming has been a pretty big part of my life. Same with my little brother. It's also rising industries. So we thought we would go in and kind of adapt to that. I mean, you make your own PCs also. That too, yeah. But the candy bars are almost like loot boxes, right? Real life loot boxes in the sense of so there's a little bit of that kind of connection. You know, I'm curious one of the things we see as a recurring theme on this podcast is people coming in with. Creams for gamers, drinks for gamers, right? Like all kinds of fill in the blank for gamers. Do you guys consider this the chocolate bar for gamers? Like is this part of the marketing strategy or is it just that the gaming audience you think is going to lucrative enough that it's an interesting target for you guys? Are you tailoring the product to the audience at all or it's just an interesting audience? Well, I think it's way more organic than that. When Truman as a parent buying stuff for your kids over the years, you see trends in the marketplace and Truman was definitely kind of going through the mystery box stage and then went through the loot crate stage. We had lots of subscriptions when he was younger. And then when he got to be about. 15 ish, he really came and wanted me. You wanted a brand to be we're a little more grown up, more products, more Gen Z kind of cooler and more kind of gamer oriented, and that's when right around that same time, the main investor for team envy brought it to Dallas and I just, I saw Ken hirsch talking at a lunch about it and we're friends and I just sort of seemed to match up with what we were going through with the Truman factory. So I made an investment in there. And then Hass row. And he was very nice in letting us start officing in that the team envy as a brand because he thought it was a great idea for the community. And then he introduced us to the Schuyler paper crowns and I went up and met Skyler in New York and we had a little sit down for a couple hours and he just he basically said this brand is going to kill it. I can make it, I can make you guys kill it and this industry is just seems natural. It's like a natural fit. So I came back and told trim and we just decided to kind of redo the entire business with new products. We branding. And then the pandemic happened. So really, we spent the whole first half of the pandemic just redoing the entire business around that community and wanting to be a part of it, so it was a less, I would say we never even really considered the financial or target market aspect of it. It was really more, this is a Truman's guy's name on it, so it's like more reflection of where he is in his life right now. That's basically the overlay of the whole brand. So it really follows him and what his interests are. And then I kind of come behind and try to find the people who can help us make it cool and make the product great and make it a great experience and right now it is in the gamer community and hopefully we're trying to it's an endemic brand. I mean, that's really what we're trying to do is be the brand in the space. What do you think about that? Sorry, just let me ask sort of a very direct question. Fast forward 5 years. Do you guys want to be known as the chocolate bar for gamers? I mean, we actually have the official candy for gaming like trademarked to. Okay. So yeah, definitely. So there's definitely like some ambition there. Yeah. Well, I don't know because I don't want to be tacky about it because it just seems like it's been a natural fit. So far, I feel like if we overthink it in that respect, that it might not feel as good. You know, because it was really good. We're meeting all these new people and the industry and the community. So open and let's kind of helps you out. And I really like being a part of all that. And I know Truman likes being a part of it. It's almost like two obvious. And we have way more than chocolate bars. We have gummies and we're coming out with new products right now for gamers. And which you can't really talk about yet, but it's really more making wow, what a tease. I have a follow-up question to that because I know that you all have an ethos that involves building a target audience that's within the gaming community, but lucky for you, a lot of people like candy. So are you finding that you're bringing people who are outside of the gaming community into the fold into what you're doing just because you make good candy and how does the epic prize play into all of that too? Are you finding that's extremely popular with gamers? Or are you finding that, you know, maybe the non gaming community is also like, hey, I want to win a golden ticket. You know, that's very appealing. What's that kind of audience breakdown been like for you so far? Yeah, what do you think about that? I would say if you think about it, epic prize or is kind of a game itself. So it's kind of bringing in non gamers and gamers. So it's kind of. I would say everyone has liked it so far. No one has accused you guys of using these as gambling, right? Because loot boxes came under fire as a gambling mechanism for kids knowing there's no like ten year olds buying thousands of bars hoping to get a prize. We're not going to hear any of those stories. What's strange is in this September the brand will actually be 6 years old. And so we have a lot of experience in the specifically in the Dallas market selling the product awarding prizes. And all that. So I just figured like, we'll just hit that, we'll hit that situation if it ever comes up. But I think we've made it. So it's not like a sweepstakes, if you will, like some of the other brands that are coming out with tickets and prizes will say on the terms and conditions that there are sweepstakes. And we're not a safe stakes. So prizes are always changing. The odds always change. People can buy their product or not buy their product. We'll probably have other products without prizes. Eventually, so yeah, so the epic prize, well, are you asking me to other customers? So.

"Family colleagues. We appreciate all of the love. Lindsey, how you doing this week? You're filling in. I know this is a big week for me for so many reasons. This is kind of fun. I know, first is that I finally made it to the big time. We get to be a co host, which is so much fun. The big time. Yeah, the big time. And the second is that, I don't know if you saw, but we sports coming to switch has been an absolute rave for everyone who's tried it, which means that I am going to have a new game to play soon. This is the big news. Yeah. Actually, you're right. It is pretty big news. And it's a great reminder. You know, if you love Lindsay and you want to find more of Lindsay and just can't get enough of Lindsay's content, you guys should also subscribe to our sister podcast meta woman and tune into the business of eSports weekly news show, which we do live every Wednesday night, 8 30 p.m. Eastern Time. So if this is your first time hearing Lindsay, we're getting to know Lindsay. This is where you can find more of her after the fact. There's so much more of me out there. Don't worry everyone. I plug the most important things, Lindsay, right? Yeah, that's right. So here's the question, do you think, what are they calling it? What are they calling the new sports game? I think they're still calling it, I might even still be called way sports. I know this can't be called Wii sports though. I did not look at the title of the game, but I thought I was exciting. You can play two V two. With friends. So it said much to, I was reading a review that was a much to the detriment of living rooms everywhere, which is going to be totally accurate in my house because we have a lot of tall family and friends, and there's just not that much space for everyone's limbs. But we're going to do anticipating a bunch of 6 foot four. I'm going to clean house and we tennis. And I'm going to get turkeys and we bowling and I'm not going to play any of the other ones because I'm not that good at the rest of them, but I'm great at those two and I can't wait for it to be back. I'm very excited. It's so funny you say that 'cause I feel like first of all the only Wii game I think I ever played was Wii sports. It's a great one. And I think I probably only played the tennis in the bowling, which I'm pretty sure we're also in Wii sports. So I want to get it on the baseball was terrible. Nobody could get the timing right. They probably fixed that since 2004 or 6, but we'll see. I'm excited. We'll be at pax and we'll probably get to try it out and it'll be fun. That's true, actually. We will be at pax, which is a great reminder. Man, you're a professional. I mean, I'm gonna have to kick Jimmy out, right? Jimmy's out, Lindsey's in. No, we are gonna albeit packs this third week of April, right? April 21st to the 24th. So if you're a fan of business of eSports, if you're gonna be down at packs, definitely come say hi to us. We will have a panel on the Friday night, so definitely check that out. It's listed in the pack schedule. It's business of eSports live. We're gonna have a ton of great guests, like amazing guests, live at packs. So it'll be a lot of fun. And we hope everyone will come say hello. I'm sure people will come say hello to you, Lindsay. They won't even recognize me. I'm sure hoping to see everyone there. Speaking of great guests, we have amazing guests on the podcast this week. I don't want to waste any more time I want to get to them because I think this is such a cool story. It's really such a cool story and I love I love the variety of guests we've been getting, right? Because we get everything from eSports team owners to technology companies and sort of everything in between and this is one of those ones that is just so different, so unique and I think so fascinating on the podcast today we have Derek and Truman Wilson from the Truman factory Truman Wilson's the CEO Derek Wilson is the founder and by the way and Truman I love this. Actually. Sorry. But Truman also known as the Gen Z Wonka. Which I think is the coolest thing ever. So welcome to the podcast, guys. Thanks for having us. Thank you. Gonna need to retroactively come up with a cool name for myself. Gen Z Wonka, just so it takes the cake. Guys, for our listeners, we don't know much about the Truman factory or what you guys do or your backgrounds. Would love a little bit of the story, the background, you know, why you guys got into what you're doing a little bit about. I don't want to give it away here. And also the connection to gaming, right? Where the love and passion for gaming came from. Yeah, for sure. I'm trim and Wilson. I'm a 17 year old Gen Z entrepreneur from Dallas, Texas. I'm currently a junior at the highland park high school. In 2017, I founded the German factory. And I've been gaming all my life ever since I was maybe 5 years old. Playing Minecraft. And then just recently, maybe last July, we rebranded the whole trimming factory brand for gamers. And. Yeah, so I'm Derek. I'm entrepreneur here in Dallas. A former tech entrepreneur who exited a few years ago. And Truman, I guess you can jump in, but Truman, we watched a lot of Shark Tank and there was an episode where the kids were pitching the shark sharks. And I didn't realize that Truman really wanted to start a candy bar business. It's like something he never really talked to me about. And he wanted to kind of make a Willy Wonka bar. And at first he wanted to make the chocolate in the kitchen. And I just knew that we weren't going to be good chocolate makers. We had to go find so long story short as we found this is when he was 12 is we found a chocolate manufacturer in New York called Nassau candy. He was willing to work with basically a brand that was just starting and I found here in Dallas. A marketing and tech company and they made a software for us called that we called it epic prize vault and so what came out of that was a single product, a candy bar, named after Truman. Truman bar with a golden ticket printed underneath the rapper each candy bar with its so many unique code and matched up to prizes we would basically put in the database software for the appropriate vault and that was the beginning of the Truman factory that was back in 2017. Yeah, yeah. And I'm curious, guys, when did you recognize sort of gaming as the target market, right? Because a big part of this is and Derek, you have a bit of a background in gaming as an investor in envy, correct? Correct. What is the attachment to gaming or what do you guys recognize in the gaming audience as being a 5th year or an interesting sort of overlap?.

"Folks I'm talking to the author, Lawrence lemur, the author of capote's women, a fascinating book, detailing the extraordinary and strange relationships that this, I don't know what you call him. This man child, this genius, Truman Capote had with all of these wealthy society, women in the 50s and the 60s. I was asking you in 1976 when he finally allows esquire to publish something, maybe to keep the publisher at bay who paid him this big advance. That all of these women knew who they were portrayed in this excerpt and they all felt betrayed. Did any of them remain friends with him? Yeah, I mean, Lee Roswell stayed friends with him and CZ guest because he didn't send a negative about them in the excerpt. But his life sort of fell apart after this. It's like he cashed in his chips by publishing this thing. He groomed all of these women, groomed these relationships, and then suddenly decides to betray them. Do you think was he a deeply mean spirited person to do something like this? It seems cruel to me to have people who are confiding in you and then to betray them publicly in this way. He was an egomaniac. He was incredibly charming, but he lived an isolated life by himself in a real sense. He was friendless. So yes, he's God. So why not betray these women? There was Friends forever. And he didn't understand why they were so upset. And I think they were right to be upset. Some of his some of Truman's Friends, oh, they deserve it. They were just as rich worthless women. I don't feel that way at all. I think it was a terrible thing to do. He died in 1984. He was somebody that you could see at Studio 54. He always seemed to be making the scene, so to speak. He seemed to cultivate his public image, probably infinitely more than he cultivated an actual personal inner life. And it seems to have destroyed him. He was actually quite young when he died, wasn't he? His 59. Yeah, 59. Tell us some of the stories in this book. First of all, why would you write it with a title capote's women? In other words, why not simply write about Truman Capote and have the stories of these women be incidental to it? What made you want to focus on the women themselves? Because he wanted to write this masterpiece. This is going to be his master degree. So people would forget in cold blood or breakfast at Tiffany's. This is a book that would live forever. So as an author, I'm just fascinated by somebody that has that ambition. And what happens with it? And this is a guy with brilliant instincts in literary instincts. There is a he knew there was a great story to be told about these women. I mean, I tell it, I'm getting fabulous reviews. I don't tell it the way Truman would tell the feed been able to do it. But it's a fantastic story. There's no question

"I mean i don't think that machine is on. You is gonna make you go faster off. Don't believe that. I mean not when you were at the bar the night before you know like some things were counterproductive but i think that was just him willing to do anything to win. Where if this guy was training. You know ricky. Or whoever he trained i mean i think they worked with the carmichael trainer carmichael. Timmy worked with that and they did crazy things to you know like everybody did some stuff that was out of the ordinary but i mean i just think in my mind fundamentally like roger bike roger by school here and there eat right go to bed. Go to bed. Time i just. I don't think those things change over the years. You're not gonna find a agree with. I agree with that but they all do that right. So we can kind of agree that cooper web is one of the most mentally talented person in our sport and being around cooper day in day out. He's looking for that. Like zero point one percent edge over kenny or more. He's not looking for five percent. He's not going to get five percent. There isn't a five percent give or to get so the little things that he does to recover his body or to you know man he goes into this dark place at the end of motives even on practice days and he'll start yelling at his mechanic and yelling at us. People don't see it every day so when you see it for the first time it's kind of strange but being around it. He just wants to win. That's all he wants to do. He'll he's better at the gym. He's like and i see like chad. And these guys and they did that. But then you see some. I don't want to throw anybody under the bus. But there are some top guys in our sport just kind of slide through that probably have more talent than the guys winning you know but they just you just enough just enough thanks to the flyer racing racer x podcast dan.

It's dan truman. What's up truman. how are you man. i'm good man. I'm just catching up a little. Loretta lynch here. We've been really busy at athenian. Get so I elected to stay at the warehouse. Here in florida and continue to ship product out and and work with the guys. So it's surprising. You and i haven't done this already known each other for a long time and just getting around to it now. So apologies for not I mean you you've been busy with your own vital mex- thread so i think i've officially made it now. No i mean it's it's a fair question for some people and a lot of people aren't at the racist so they don't really understand how some things work They took something out of content. That i said on a on a fantasy podcast and they're run with it but it is what it is I see you and jt pf threads on there all the time so yeah welcome. Welcome to the club and it's interesting. I feel like your your path industry. You're from florida. I'm from canada. Are kind of the same. We wanted to be pro racers. We realized we weren't good enough. You were probably better than i was. And then at some point we got into being a mechanic and then we realized that that's a lot of work but in the meantime we made a ton of connections and friends and we have both graduated outside of being a mechanic but still heavily in the industry. So i do feel a kinship with you. Truman as far as our career paths here. Yeah i agree. I mean the goal growing up as a young kid was to be a professional bike. Racer right like your goal. My goal and You know. I tried to live. That dream didn't come from any money or nothing so it was really hard for us to make all the big amateur nationals. I would ride with people friends and teammates at the time. And yeah i mean i one amateur nationals at the time you think. That's so great right. Winning these races and texas and las vegas and all that stuff. But i i never won the reds Third and fourth was the best i ever was. You know. i raced against stewart. And he won most of them as people know he was pretty good right. He's a good runner. He was decent. But you know james. We're really close. You know we were close friends. Growing up in florida or dad's friends and You know we raise every weekend back then. It wasn't like now with training facilities. Everybody raised you know each other on the weekends. And you know. I would get him a motor here. Obviously for the most part he won ninety five percent. How did you did you straight up james here. Yeah i'd beat him a couple of times a day. Nice guys. we'll talk about. It was some good times on mini bikes. You're not too big bike. He he kinda hit another gear Funny story his first big bike race. Was that gator back. And i was a big guy. I've always been a big guy and In staging you know james's kind of you know being james cocky and we were having fun. We were friends to know so. And i said don't lean on me like this is eighty eighty five class. Whatever we were on then superman before that and Sure enough in the first he leaned over. I leaned back and unfortunately he went down Not all my fault but He broke his arm or shoulder. I think at that race and when he came back..

I don't know what's because i'm quite new instagram myself i way instagram seems to be the place to advertise thousand his money video. And this is the the means of me to do that by having a ten second clip whereas whereas facebook is completely in your face ironically. But you've got someone like twitter which is now. it's it's feels more aussie. Can i say that it just feels more welcoming in that respect. It's leans more chats than anything else. It's more of a collective. Yes that's the word i'm looking for. Thank you yeah yes. yeah and I find professional music. It's more focused on music. Yes i don't have my friends. Sharing their nightly meal. Eckrich is cool. Who stole some of my friends. Who are incredible chefs. I liked seeing it. And i actually get the recipes. I want that. dm me But you know what When you were a business go into instagram or twitter business as in music. Yes i agree with you and with the instagram with the food. I mean do do people do that. Live to people walk around with that. Didn't wanna plates and walk into people's houses. Look i've just. I just wanted to people.

It's it's really hard to get anywhere so grateful to have persons like yourself who will Pioneering pushy full with people like myself in office. He just open coming really. I mean i'll say. I'll say i'm coming up in around for bloomberg news but it's it's it's heartening to know that there are people you tend to failure when listen to the radio. Yeah that that that you'll just people offered what communist are given so the record company gives radio stations something and it's just pushed out so you've got you standardize who are brilliant. Put them down at all but there are but it kind of keeps away the those gems that you there's nothing better than funding a song for yourself funding and acts or one hundred percent foot foot that you just you find somewhere and it's yours and then you introduce it to the world yourself say. Have you heard this. Have you heard this song by so and so and people listen to and go good god. I've never heard that before. That's amazing and the birth. The first question will be why big and the answer is because we don't go out looking off we should go look with our. Es more often is. That's exactly why. I started the buzzer. Podcasts why habba a blog for many years of music blogger ailsa right per new york firm for popular music content But i really have a passion for independent music and I got too busy writing my blog. And i i find it. It's actually a hobby finding nuggets beautiful nuggets of people in random places. All over the world and i was shared on my Britain block and got too busy. And i decided you know what i'm going to on the air. So the buzzer. Podcast is basically the buzzer. Indy on air. I say that that's what we're all about so on so on a on a daily occurrence. Do you just listened at. Are you listening to new songs. yeah on how. How does that feel for you to be the pioneer in that respect. It's a two edged sword because there's it's a. It's a double edged sword. Because you you find that something has done remarkably well but it might not be what i think his right to. The podcast is incredible. I normally start day My first day between four and six o'clock in the morning. I put my earphones and i go on social media. I look for posts. Vote new releases And i'm not just my own social media but a variety worldwide groups. And i have a list see usually start on the buzzer indie written blog from there a mature or grow up to the pie cast And i love. I love it. It's it's amazing to be able to say. Well listen to this tune and to share it like Some of my close family or incredible lee affected by music. Like i am is there. Peter pan is is my peter pan. I and All-share something from an artist in the uk canada Just recently a new artist say found in australia. Okay who reminded me a lot of david. Bowie and I shared it with my daughter cat. Who's who i'm talking about. And it was just an incredible valence. Like a a mini club. Hey look what. I found any seven by guys like. Yeah so it's an incredible feeling. This is an exciting to discovery. And it's also not discovery it's also an overwhelming feeling in the sense that there's so much talent out there and the artists that are putting out music have so much passion and hard work and time in creating their music regardless of what style of music it is the so there's that human element in as well and there's only so many tunes it can put on a play last night. Are you can put on the blog or you can put on a podcast right. So there's that human element of you know you have to pass up some for the favor of others and you must be very busy context. Because they're being so much music out there so much beautiful music out there as well. I mean on a daily basis listened to new songs and that must be. I mean what do you have. Do you have a go-to album that you've that you've always had all that you always go back to because there must be something that even when you've got this new is around you and the him out there must be there must be the bedrock for you. What's your bedrock my bad frog. I got anything aerosmith right okay. Anything else smith. Okay was say The who roy. And i would say i would say about I would say david bowie Because david bowie was one of the most out there are just didn't give two damns. About what style of music. He was putting out. He put me out by soul. Yeah if he wanted to do disco he's just a scout if he wanted to change his entire thing and Go into something else. He did like he was a he led his art dictate or guide him as host to creating music for radio play. Yes and a lot of the artists Well the artists that i mentioned i would say the majority through music creating music for music sake. Not for radio play and i think today's music has a risk of people creating music for that radio play or creating subsequent releases after releases because it's dictated by spotify streaming. Yes but shortly that we. We've we've had that in the past though that this is something spotify something unique itself. The we've always been. We've always been dictated by three minute pop song because of the book because radio stations wouldn't play anything over certain a certain amount of time so spotify is doing the same thing really the the fact that i raise you. A good song is a good song. Regardless of what time is it's quite sad in those..

That is a Bloomberg business flattened. It certainly is. Thank you, Charlie Pellet. Let's get right back to Dr Dave West near a professor of biology at Davidson College joins us right now on the phone from Davidson, North Carolina. Professor Westner. Let's talk variance. There's a Bloomberg intelligence report out this afternoon from Sampras, Ellie, our colleague at Bloomberg, who says that the virus variant from India. Seems like it responds to Astra and likely all vaccines. Are we seeing right now? Any variants able to really get past the existing vaccines right now, to an extent that should be alarming to us? That that's a good question. And so far it seems like we have not seen that that variance. I can second debate existing vaccines. Yes, CDC. Categorizes the vaccines as variants of concerned and these are the ones we've heard about the UK variant. The Brazilian Bennett South African variant in the higher level from that is the variant of high consequence and that would be a variant that can escape the existing vaccines. So far, we don't have a variant identified in that in that category. Means different vaccines are gonna have different delicacies against different variants that that's not a surprise, but so far it seems like the certainly the Madonna and five other vaccines. Pretty effective against all the hold of that variance that we've identified so far. How does this work though in terms of variants, mutating or having viral variants, right we have it with I'm assuming the common flu, right? This is why the flu vaccine gets tweet. Often every year. But when is variants normal and manageable versus variants being problematic and creating another pandemic? Right? You're absolutely right with the the flu analogy. We have a new vaccine every year because Influenza virus mutates very rapidly, and we see a slight variations in the strains of flu from from year to year. Generally speaking Corona viruses do not mutate as rapidly as influenza viruses. So it's It's not that big an issue with Kroehner viruses, but they do mutate overtime. That's that's natural. You are going to see variants on. I think what we have to do as as researchers is really stay on top of What variants are Racine in different locations. We've heard a lot about genomic sequencing of the virus. That's something the U S did not jump on early enough in my opinion. We have to keep that that genomic sequencing up so that we can identify those variants as they appear on, then look to see if, in fact those are causing infections. People who already had been vaccinated, indicating they may be they may be breakthrough. Very interested in doing that. Are we keeping on top of that? I think we're doing a better job now that we were six months ago, Um I think it's one of those Those deals where you can't be doing good enough, but I think we are doing a better job now of monitoring the appearance of new variants. So one thing I've been thinking a lot about it is how the pandemic ends. Now that the United States is on a good path to vaccination. What the same time the rest of the world really isn't How does this play out? Like? What are we talking about? A year from now, That's a great question. You know, I think there's a couple answers. You know, as long as the virus is Mutating very rapidly throughout the population. Whether it's India here, the United States to some other place, there's potential for new, very dangerous variants to arrive, and I think that's that's one of the arguments in favor of the U. S. Sending vaccine doses to India 60 million doses for India's A drop in the bucket. I know But having us helped another country get their population vaccinated is potentially beneficial for us because of the limited the chance of new variants appearing someplace else, um, s or the other side. The question is, Are we gonna eliminate this virus and I think everyone agrees. The answer is no, It's not going to be Like polio or smallpox, or one of these viruses that we can almost completely eliminate from the human population mean more likely, it's probably gonna become other current issue that we see much like influenza viruses. Dr Western 20 seconds. Do you see we get to a place where the world feels like it used to be. Yet. Good question. Largely, yes, e think there may be some things that never go back. Completely normal. But but largely, yes. All right. We're gonna leave it on that note. I like that optimism. Will do. Dr. Day Wester. Stay safe. Be well professor of biology Davidson College on the phone from David's in North Carolina. You know, I feel like him with everything that we do all our conversation, especially when it deals with vaccines and covert. Specifically, there are caveats. It's just the way it is. Yeah, There's so much uncertainty right now, but that's something that it's Seems like we're getting used to. Yeah, exactly and figuring out our way through.

"I'm Scott Simon. When Joe Scarborough is a Republican congressman some 20 years ago, he had portrait of two presidents on his office wall. Ronald Reagan that surprised nobody. But also Harry Truman, a Democrat who was Joe Scarborough explains in a new book was derided as a rube and a strange little man. But who has Joe says exceeded all their low expectations. His book Saving freedom. Truman the Cold War in the fight for Western civilization, Joe Scarborough. Morning, Joe and MSNBC joins us. Thanks so much for being with us, Joe. Thank you so much, Scott. It's great talking to you again. What? Nice to talk to you again. Why was Harry Truman up on your wall? You know a S O. I was raised in the 19 sixties and early seventies by conservative parents and the definition of a conservative and are in the Scarborough household was being you know, Cold warriors, and I always thought throughout high school in college when I was reading about the Cold War and studying it that You know, One of those presidents started the Cold War, and one of them ended it. And actually, the starting of the Cold War was far more difficult because Harry Truman and having to confront Stalin and having to confront the you know Soviet Union's efforts, toe expand westward. Hey, not only had deal with isolationist Republicans, but he had to push back progressives in his own party and Truman Truman was simple man compared to the Certainly Roosevelt the person he succeeded, but hey, had more difficult decisions that he had to make. And the first six months of his presidency than most commander in Chiefs have to make over two terms. Yes, we'll run those down for us, because it's kind of stunning and to a no way obviously diminish Franklin Roosevelt's leadership. You suggest that I'm on something's Truman was actually more clear eyed. But Harry Truman in an interview after he left the White House said heroes know when to die, and Truman claimed to be talking about Abraham Lincoln leaving a mess for Andrew Johnson. But actually, I think most people suspect was talking about FDR. And it's interesting for all those who think that Joe Biden is having a difficult transition right now look back to what Harry Truman had to deal with. FDR knew he was dying during the campaign, he told trim and Hey, don't fly in planes. One of us need to stay alive. Truman get sworn in knowing that he was going to be president sooner rather than later. And yet when FDR died, Harry Truman knew nothing of the Manhattan project knew knew nothing of of the secrets and government he found out after his first Cabinet meeting when Stimpson came over and said, Hey, I need to talk to you about something and Within several months, he had to make the decision on how he was going to wrap up the war in Europe, whether he was going to drop atomic bombs onto Japanese cities. And then, of course, this book's talks about what happens a year and a half later, when it becomes obvious that Stalin has designs on grace on Turkey and on Central and Western Europe and then Harry Truman has to get the action and a time when a lot of Americans were just tired of war, right? I mean, most Americans had didn't want did not want to have to confront who they considered to be a good ally during the war, they had been exhausted by four years of war. By 400,000 deaths by rationing. The last thing they wanted to do was beat Nazism back and then have to worry about Soviet communism. But that's exactly that's the you know. Harry Truman had said to his Cabinet, he said, Guys, this is gonna be the toughest selling job I'll ever have is the president is Push people out of the isolationism and peace time That really had been in the American tradition since George Washington's farewell address, Joe while we have you, I have to take advantage of the opportunity. Ask you this question. Donald Trump has been good for cable news ratings. Going to miss him is President. Oh, my God. No. Remember, Remember, the less moon vest? Quote Go bad for America. Good for cables are good for TV ratings. And I remember saying to make a my God I would take cancelation and any any moment, Iet's thoroughly exhausting and a a sort of a 24 7 news culture that's focused on Responding. The Donald Trump's latest shocks his latest tweets, and it's actually bad for America. That sort of news coverage has been bad for America. Where politics and this has been happening over the past 20 years, and the cable news deserves much of the blame, as does the political talk radio and now Facebook, But politics has become a sport. You know we even when even when I was in Congress, I could sit down and talk to the most liberal Democrat, and we could figure out a way to strike a compromise on long term care or on education reform. And we could get it done these days because it's become so tribal and become such a sport. I think, in large part because of the media, uh, it makes it impossible to strike the deal. So you have this sort of deals and Harry Truman did with, you know, Chairman Vandenberg, the past the Truman Doctrine and NATO and And make the changes He made just Scarborough. His book Saving Freedom. Thank you so much for being with us again. Take care. Thank you so much for having me..

"TV's Paul listening with you We're gonna take a look at what's supposed to happen on January 20th. It's the peaceful transition of power. And, you know what does that mean? Where did it start? How does that happen? So let's go to somebody who knows all about that. Clifton Daniel is the grandson of President Harry Truman. He knows a lot about the peaceful transition of power. He wrote a book about his grandfather called growing up. Growing up with my grandfather. Memories of Harry S. Truman wrote. Another book called Dear Harry loved Best. I have that one, too. I love letters between Harry and Bess Truman and very active with the Truman name, in fact, even portrays his grandfather on stage. We'll talk about that as well. But for now, Clifton welcome to WGN radio. I'm Paul. Thanks for having me. So let's talk about the substance of this is well, first of all, By the way, your grandfather died. I think in 1972. So you have your only around for a long time, I guess is you have significant memories of him. Right? I was 15 years old. When Grandpa passed away on December 26 1972 I remember going to I was in Missouri. I went to the Truman home his his, You know, his trench coat is still hanging there. As far as I know, the host is the house as a tourist spot now is left just the way your grandfather and grandmother left it. It's rather small. It's rather rather petite. They didn't really have a grandiose lifestyle. Sure they didn't. That house was built by my great great grandfather, George Porterfield Gates, who did very well for himself. Manufacturing queen of the pantry Flower, the wagon or Gates milling company. So that was actually in its day. That was one of the nicer, bigger houses an independence the but you're right by today's standards. It's a nice Victorian. I think they described as being 2.5 stories tall. It's got some stained glass in the front windows upstairs and down and And some very nice porches. But, yeah, it is not anything palatial by today's standards was very nice, comfortable old house for people with some memory like myself. Your mother was Margaret Truman, Delhi, Daniel. So for folks who are old enough to remember that, of course. Harry Truman Investor's daughter, Your mom was known for playing piano playing piano in the White House. She wrote. Murder mysteries right, that That's the woman we're talking about. Uh, right. She, uh, yeah, she I always used to joke that my mother, she she enjoyed murder mysteries. My grandmother. My mother had a deal where my grandmother also read murder mysteries, and she would just pile them up next to her chair. And when the pilot got Too big. She would just give them all my mother. My mother would read them. And eventually hand them off to me at some point, but anyway She, mom, uh, wrote I kid she written, she wrote more than 35. I know the murder mystery. Yeah, And I always joke that she really enjoyed that because she could sit in the comfort of her Manhattan living room and kill off people in Washington D C one by one When she was around now there's a more she might want to do. Oh, she's gone. So you have made other appearances. I I've seen you on NBC Networks and whatever talking about this peaceful transition of power. Give us the connection. Why is it that we remember Back to Harry Truman. When we get ready for for January 20th peaceful transition of power. Well, because Grandpa was actually the one who began what we now know as the formal Transfer presidential power prior to 1952. It's succeeded. It was always done, but there wasn't a formal set of steps, rules, offices, things like that. And Grandpa didn't really have that either. That the that was all set in stone in 1963 with the Transition Act, which was another 11 years later. Grandpa made it a point. To make sure that President elect Eisenhower and his Cabinet and his staff Had everything they needed to continue to take us to make a smooth transition. So there were no bumps. There was no there was continuity. Uh, for the continuity nationally and internationally with administrations, he wanted to make sure that they had everything they needed. They could have meetings with his cabinet members and staff. It could come into the White House come to the open coming to the West Wing. And basically see what was going on and be told. This is where we are. This is what's happening. Granted, they weren't They were going to change things and do what they wanted, but he wanted to make sure that they hit the ground running. Now and my memory was I don't think your grandfather and General Eisenhower who succeeded him. They were not the best of friends. Right? Little tension between those two is as power transferred. Yeah, Just a little. Uh, they had they started off fine. Rand. Paul, In fact, on two separate occasions pretty much offered the presidency that Ike When he came back from World War two, Grandpa said. You run, I'll be your vice president. Really a nice and Howard politely declined both times. I granddaughter, Mary Jean Eisenhower, friend of mine once told me that her grandfather Finally chose the Republican Party as a military man. He had not. Been Republican or Democrat. He had been a soldier. But after he left office, he chose the Republican Party because he thought that the Democrats had had the White House simply too long with Franklin Roosevelt's 12 years in my grandfather's Eight. That was 20 years of control the White House so I think it irritated Grandpa did that Eisenhower declared as a Republican after Grandpa had And they had a good working relationship up to that point. I don't think that was the The real reason. But there were some other there were just some some serious differences in the way they viewed Politics at the time that they rift develop between them, and by the time of Transition At the time of Eisenhower's election, the transition they were barely speaking to each other. In fact, President Eisenhower arrived at the White House. On. Traditionally, the incoming president arrives picks up the outgoing president they ride to the capital together. And before that they might have coffee in the White House. President Eisenhower and Mrs Eisenhower declined to go in. And grandpa. My mother said that my grandfather said something the affected well, we'd better on, you know, get on out there and ride with him. Or, you know, we're gonna hold up the United States. We're gonna mess this whole thing up. We won't have an orderly transfer when I was about your grandfather. He was pretty salty guy, right? In other words, this was, you know, I mean, that's the kind of guy he would be like then. Fine. Let's just go right and pretty straight talking, but again. Both of them. They were both. They were mad at each other, and I won't spend it all on Eisenhower or my grandfather. They had their issues with each other. But they both put it aside. They there wasn't a lot of small talk. In the car on the way to the capital, but they didn't need to be right. They just had to do with each other. What is your sense of if President Trump it's unknown what he's going to do. Some say he'll have a rally in Florida who knows what he'll do, but How important is it? Joe Biden has basically says he didn't really care if if President Trump is at the inauguration or not accept what the message it sends to the American public. Do you agree with President Elect Biden doesn't send a message of Trump is not well, There isn't much he could do, but I and I think that certainly Joe Biden has taken the high road. He's basically saying, you know, Okay, fine. There's going to be a transfer of power. There's going to be an inauguration on on January 20th. He's going to hold up his end of the bargain. And if President Trump doesn't It's still going to happen, right? But again, I think I don't know what else he could do and he's again. He seems to me to be to be doing the right thing to taking the high road. He's not sniping at the president. He's not Doing any name calling or or or threats or tweeting. He's just doing what he's supposed to do. He has a He has a big job ahead of them, trying to repair a lot of the damage that's been done. And that famous phrase the buck stops here which your grandfather had on his desk. Every president since then, has talked about it. Your grandfather will forever be ah, legend for that. You just wanted a couple things where we have to go The next seven years, The Truman Library in in Missouri is gonna be celebrating the 75th anniversary of his presidency of my grandfather's entire presidency. You know, the 75th anniversary started 20 twenties going out that he came into office 75. Little more than 75 years ago on April 12 1945 when FDR died And so the next seven years. These are the 75th anniversary of NATO, the Marshall plan. All of that perfect and I also know you play your grandfather in a show called Give them hell, Harry. I really need to see that. I know that's been canceled this year, but hopefully you'll be back on.

Lord knows where he'll be tonight. So I better check in and make sure he saved That is my good friend. Mike Hammer. Nick WGN Weather meteorologist. Michael, Tell me you're not going anywhere. I don't want you getting in trouble. Yeah, I've already got the sweat. Uh, I'm on the couch. I'm watching the football and yeah, I'm not going anywhere. Wait. You've just described me since March, 20th. Yeah. Yeah, I'm getting too old for New Year's Eve. Anyway, you know, by the way, I really never real big holiday, but yet this year, especially and laying low and they're gonna watch a little TV. Yeah, I'm with you on that. You know, I've always for many, many years now. I I do not go out on New Year's. I have people over. I used to order in like a Chinese food dinner. Something like that. And we'd watch because I'm well, I think we're both in the same union. So we get the screeners. We get to watch the movies that are nominated this year. Didn't happen there. No nominations yet. So, um and I'm having nobody over really doesn't matter. But but, yeah, So that's my new year's is hang around the house and, hey, I said at the beginning of the show that I was going to tell people something about you, they might not know. I think you know what I'm referring to, Um, but that I surprised you by bringing it up. So you know what I'm talking about, right? About my WGN history or well, yeah. Related WGN history. Tell folks why the name hammer. Nick is so famous that WGN Well, my dad worked there for, um Fino is about 30 years, starting in the early 19 sixties. He was the staff musician and worked on. Those those circus for 25 years from 1961 until I think it was the mid eighties and also remember shows artist showcase tropical music show that was run on Sunday night and WGN for many years. Hey, He also was part of that. So I spent a lot of time with the kid WGN in it's It's just every time I go in there. It still blows my mind that I'm back there as an adult working at WGN up, but that was my dad's roadie. Basically, I love that drums around and in and out of the station because he did other jobs or are using another band. So we do things sometimes at night or during the day, some weddings So don't call in a lot of drums around the kid even out of WGN. So here your dad was a bit weird. I know we're supposed to ask whether I promise we'll do that. But so did you have like member Bob Trend? Lower right in the big top. Did you have both? Were they over the house all the time? And hey, Bos. Hey, Ali. I mean, were they were over the house. Now a couple of the guys were from the band. Bill Porter was one of my dad's best friends, and he was one of the trumpet players very talented, and you know, he's still playing. I think around Chicago Land area. Um, he, uh He was one of my dad's best friend. So, yes. So some of the band guys that definitely got to know a few of the you know the clouds. You get to know what you know. It was a kid. I was hanging around the station, but I didn't know him all that well, But But, yeah, Yeah, it was quite a thrill of the kids hang out at the old number bag. They were just as nice as weeks. But you didn't have like both so saying Get away from the kids bother me right now, but they were nice I've always wanted, you know, I think it was an old movie the group to where they have somebody dressed up as a clown. But he's really a mean guy, you know, and does that, But it's good to know that our Oliver Oliver Sandy, they were really nice. Yeah, it was amazing to see the transition because you'd meet them in the hallway and they would have her makeup on And they'd be doing the radio on WGN, like Bob Bell was an announcer in the morning and WGN, and then he'd Switch over to the TV side and and, you know, put some makeup on and be both. Oh, and hey, it was quite the transition he made. He was a very talented man. I love it. What a history that you've been able to live.
