He is charming and he. It's funny really made an impression on me and later when i would ask them about that night. He has zero recollection of it. So i i apparently made quite an impression on him which really makes me feel good so i do not remember that story that sam just told and i remember it because i remember faces and i definitely would've remembered hers. I thought that i met sam. She was on stage and we were going to see a show and everyone was talking. Oh the sam girl is so funny. And i'm very competitive. As a she's whatever's she's not that funny but she was. And i remember just seeing her kind of flop around stage like a muppet and it made me laugh And then we asked her to do a show with us a in our improv group and she just hit it off with all of us. But i think especially me. And that's that's how i remember meeting her and that's how one could hope to be described on their first memory. As as a muppet round mean that's when you know i do love the muppets. Okay well then. I guess that's good but i think the reason david quickly became my best friend out here in los angeles is he just had i. It's weird saying he's the male version of me but it really. What don't make a face but it was. We had such a similar style with comedy. And i knew if i would say something that would set him up and he would go exactly where i was thinking and it was so easy with him and we soon started filming things together. Or just saying like oh yeah. Let's let's hang out to do this. We would go to lunch all the time or go on walks and these were i mean strictly friends my out time husband knew him and he would come out to lunch with us as well but it was just so easy and also just seeing somebody who could make me laugh like that. I was just like draw. His he was very magnetic. I was just drawn to him. Yeah we're very similar in many ways has sense of humor and competitive so we used to play basketball. I used to crush her. Yeah it was a little bit more physical than she should have been on the basketball court. I actually the only thing that ever happened. That was a little untoward one time after a show or a rehearsal or something. Everyone fell asleep on my floor. We were just exhausted. And she may have held my hand and i was like That's when i realized that like and at that point she was also separated. But at that point i think even i was like oh. This is more than just friendship. Our first date is interesting because it wasn't even set up like a date. We were still friends at the time. And i was in the sunday company at the groundlings and there's We had a big opening night. And there's a big party afterwards and after it was like two in the morning and he said hey. Can you hang out. do you wanna talk. And i was like sure. And it wasn't weird because again. This is the person that you know. I've been texting him all night telling him how great the show had gone. And how excited i was and so i met him at his apartment and i was all just up From the party was wearing these big heels and he wanted to go take a walk at the park right across from his apartment which was pacific park and so he gave me these old slippers that his dad had given him. I think is like twelve or something. So i am wearing these like clown shoes and we go over to the park and literally like flimflam falling along the walking trail and we talk a little bit about the show. And what's going on and then were just quiet walking and after a while he said you know. Don't you like what no wed and quiet for a little bit longer. And he's like that. I love you and it was the last thing that i was expecting him to say like i. There was no like oh this is going to happen. Nothing and we just kept walking. And i was quiet for a while and i was really thinking about it like we. Oh oh wait. And so the first thing is i think i love you too. Because it was just dawning on me.

federal executive agencies and what I saw was basically that you know the things that we had worked towards the oversight you need Tennessee's seventh district which is lawry's district so Keiron I'd have you thanks for having me on happy birthday and listen I everyone I am Kelly pollock I am the Co host of the two broads talking politics podcast sure we were working night molested physician and works in Smyrna and we were working and and you know a lot of conversations about how to make things by Laurie Coleman who is the director of Digital Strategy Time Cast Laurie Kelly how are you and I want to wish Lorri a very happy decision yeah we announced I think it's nine days ago now but my might kind of focus was always being a civil servant I went to school because at some point you realize like this is not is not a function or result of someone doing a bad job or because they don't know what to do it's actually a function of so can can you start by telling us a little bit about your background and why you decided to run for Congress you just announced and so I I'm interested to hear why you've made the rods talking politics is part of the dumb cast podcast network and so my usual co host Sophie is in Madison couldn't make it here so I am joined today they were all the things we've seen in said this program's working or not working this budget constraint is helping you're not helping I mean all of that was kind of background of how the program's implemented and then I saw how things were within those agencies actually counter the oversight concerns and all the budgetary concerns and it was very very alarming meantime like we can do something about it and so December We decided that you know at some point I want to get involved in run for for office we thought Congress underpinned every the way I saw a lot of things in government and so along the way I switched over to the private sector side I went to work for a company called Grand Thornton and doing public sector new our friends and neighbors to believe so you know it was ominous at the government also shut down in December because that kind of facilitated that a rational sane you know older politics from what I hear stories of my dad talks about no Ronald Reagan and tip O'Neill talking together and and that sort of nonpartisan back base were Hor oriented approach to evaluating and understanding all see didn't just stay with me and may come just we know that one hundred percent right or not obviously we haven't haven't won yet so we can say but we think by we I mean I'm talking about the one that suited kind of my interest in my my knowledge the best we felt also that the current person in office right now didn't have policies that reflected what we our public policy I I try to pursue as many you know higher level degrees I couldn't learn as much and then I went to work for the Federal Government at the Government Accountability Office sure up I'll answer any question no problem with that so we have thought of what a pack path victory would look like say hey listen I I know what you're going through I'm not that far removed from from where you are and and I think that together we can work did not just make things better for you but also makes system that you can actually be proud of and to people who are opened myself which includes all my cousins family and relatives there's a lot involved in and get registered in ensuring that the polling places on election day be inspired I don't claim to be I'm GonNa ask the hard question which is this is a very Republican district Tennessee seven I think in twenty eighteen it was like the best result for Democrats you know fringe extremist people they are Republicans for reasons that I think some of my relatives Republicans years and years ago and and still are and Tennessee's believe fiftieth in voter participation so getting out and trying to help young people my wife and I was talking about campaign staff and volunteers who are helping out we think that I there's a large percentage of this district that is not voting or is unregistered at the time so I think there's a good number of people out there that can help us a help help campaign in sort of coming over and voting sometime but still the Republican got like sixty six percent of the Mo so why what is your path to victory and what I I this is probably not something candidates another path here and that is that we have a number of people who a dentist Republicans in the district who are not we're going to run a positive and optimistic campaign which is I think what's needed we are not about to attack people personally and we don't have problems with anybody personally the two prong approach on voters we also are heavily dependent on my past saying I'm interested in policy I our political candidates and that is what we're going to do today so we are joined today by Kiran Sri Potter who is running for Congress whose Democrat running so you don't have to answer this part if you don't want but what would success look like if you don't win is there a a a success that you could get that would be something short of actually winning that the campaign in twenty team built up which I think nine points from twenty sixteen campaign if we could do the same thing and so the victory will will a large effort on voter participation getting out the vote at all across all ages there is and maybe now for all the issues voting for a sense of reason and neighborliness and a better way to do government for all of us so that's kind of chain and you know he's a very disgusted with the theme Washington and the partisan politics so you know how all of these things work and he has been reliably Republican voter until twenty six mind because I want to show people that that's where we're coming at it from you disagree great I'm talking to you let's find a way to work through those disagreements I think when you're talking about who might cross the bridge you know AAC for us and our children I have a five year old and a twenty month old and a lot of this decision to go into it was based on how do we make this better for you guys editor and they know that even if you don't agree on one hundred percent of the issues one hundred side at the time you still should be able to have the conversation move forward even if it is a little bit we're tired of a lot of the rhetoric they're tired of the the emphasis on on twenty four hour media and social media that we know practical part of life but but we all do it a huge issue and that's really where I think a lot of people would consider you know your position everything we thought facilitate that vision the movement and it just kind of underscored Khayyat this is dysfunctional at its finest I mean there should be a better way bat ABS- seen him speak about how that illness brings you closer to God and therefore nobody needs health care because versus the New York representative doesn't believe in healthcare he thinks he is probably you know socially liberal a fiscal conservative he's an accountant he wants to see run for anything I I don't I'm not an expert on how to best use media and all that stuff but I do know something about policy and so all our physicians are in Tennessee seven what what do you think we can do to help Tennessee and so the story which is at Republicans who have looked at fiscal conservatism as the linchpin of their political philosophy. I don't know if you've looked at the numbers that's that's how you that's how you get bit interferes with your relationship with the Lord I'm an Isa physician which I find very interesting extreme what's what you think and what's going on I'd also like to make the argument that conservatism is not a party specific goal it it can be the greatest ski group Polishes World but I'm hoping that I can get out there and and sort of give some of the younger people are GonNa meet some some visions some some sort of relations you know whatever you think about the politics to see I'd be having a conversation is missing so that's essentially why we WANNA run involved so here my husband is one of those Republicans that you're talking about and and also comes from a sort of biblical place So you know I think both those thoughts exists in can exists we need to make sure letter how what would we do here and finally my wife and I said you know we could sit here and complain about it we could sit here and just talk about it or at both of us either side of the aisle and I'll make the argument to anybody who wants to have it the that the policies I support come fiscally conservative background is wealth not concern today citing that we could spend the day together as to the usual format of you broads talking politics is that we interview guests and often those guys get ourselves in the forties or mid forties that would be excellent if we had a twenty twenty two candidate if I don't win and we have a twenty two point two candidate that can start from there that would be huge and the reason is because they believe in sort of fundamentals of policy that reflect whatever that party you sand for they are tired of the rhetoric same way that rule healthier in particular in Tennessee has been decimated and you're going to have several rural areas right does relatively recently that has left a large number of people without access to any major healthcare in that area to go to Murray County I think there's hundreds of miles before they'll tell you physicians they'll tell you that there is a small percentage that is based on the insurance costs the the access but then so you can get to a level one trauma center and there's not a whole dependency on the services there to be reliable so you know these are areas in which the federal government or food stamps or or supplemented nutrition programs the way we approach anything related to that has a deep impact on health outcomes as well so take the classic political definition but the fact that we should be spending money effectively to get the best outcome for people now related to healthcare healthcare in my you just have problems with policy position so that's the path we hope will appeal to most people do your second question what would it look like if we didn't win hopefully building on the momentum that sure that government functions to help those who need help the most and also guarantee equal access to opportunities opportunities like having healthcare he's like having education and proper infrastructure and all of that and in terms of rural hospitals closures Somera in mcnairy county I just saw a hospital ideally we should quit for positions and policies and then have rigorous intellectual debates about how best to achieve these things in that of course is not really what happens in Congress opinion is a right I mean there's there's nobody gets to dictate when they get sick and we need physicians to help us or hospitals nurses to help us get over that sickness ah Obamacare when the place and naturally by the free market system that people have talked about I think you'll see cost down in the insurance industry in the Medical Ah Congress that right now is majority Democrat probably still will be after twenty twenty but representing district that is historically somewhat read I I I had never heard the story that you just said about illness bring us closer to God's by correct me if I'm wrong I think the term physician lately but this goal conservatism is not exactly how your people have have implemented policy so I think there's sort of a distance there in a discount there's a large portion that's based on the way we approach social policy right so the way we approach education for kids the way we approach school lunches or or have health care for our people in a population that's not naturally increasing anyway then we've got serious trouble coming in every other program that we put on the than doing it all at once and I make that argument because I think President I think incrementally we'll get there faster overall with all the partisan politics out there there's nothing I'd like to bring up healthcare is not in a vacuum right you can ask most health economists and health policy experts my constituents want I have made the case that not only working in government before but being able to see other parts of the country has helped me understand perspective and go in and serve your constituents but also find ways to work with people in Congress who aren't always trying to work like what is the way for chiefs from a lot of different parts of our of this country and that's important in understanding whether or not there are people in other states and therefore there I think there's a much smaller portion of issues we disagree on than than there is in Jersey issues that we agree on so I can look across the aisle and hope that there will be people there will word out of this mess that we're in yeah so there's a lot of things that are running through my head right now that I want to get out area I don't think there's anyone out there doesn't do things we should leave sick people dying on on the street and I will ignore any rhetoric right now about that but additives that can get on your side what is that they may have that you may need what's you have they may need in order to help negotiate better bills it's not politicking at that point doc to work towards getting a better healthcare system understand that you know economics should not be punitive it should be productive who understand that children shouldn't be handed me living in this state and being represented Is that I feel like no matter I I I think staying true to the message that were trying to Bush here is is is top priority making sure that you're not just running a civil campaign should step in as a whole as a federal government not as a necessarily as a full partnership as was done before and try to rectify that situation if we don't when it comes to healthcare I I'm not GonNa there's nothing I'm GONNA hide behind here I do think accessing security the only difference I have I think that we should take a more incremental approach to getting there mine was never heard because when I call my representatives which I do daily almost in terms of listening I think you have to make yourself available I town halls if your representative are one of the most important ways you can reach out to your district congressional recesses like to think that means the majority of the constituency agree with what I'm putting out there and so I would hope that my positions would represent that and that pushing those positions would be analogy industry in the industry and we'll end the attorney industry so as policy person I'm sure that you think that I don't think anyone really truly believes that I think we were all good natured and and and hope that we can do the best that we can and in that we can agree on and in terms of getting there if you can live a life and you can live a political career that abide by those principles of being civil of being productive and allies just because they happen to be children and you know getting the meals on the weekend is an important thing in an important service that we offer I think that those are all things things I what were your husband and and we'll we'll win them over I would like to just there's something you mentioned though that does relate to health care the legislative hurdles and all that then we will if we just try to go at it from day one we'll hopefully avoid a lot more litigation in the political bantering back and forth than we had right now it's a lot more partisan bickering and posturing and things like that that are happening so how do you go into Congress surly meant for you to go home and just fundraise and just you know take a vacation yeah sure it takes some time with your family but also reach out to the people that you're it's they just basically tell me that's not the congressman Congress woman you know been they're not they're not GonNa do that superhuman beings we hopefully can walk and chew gum at the same time and if new information comes up if new concerns come up you need to be able to incorporate the there procreate or address them if they're not and that's another thing every representative should be doing when they come back districts some elective move when I come back to they get into office and it's you know this guy by the way for those you can't see me I'm just pretending those on my hand you know this guy is doing something I can't believe you that would definitely be free to talk to you but also you know when I wanted to talk to ask about I think I think healthcare is I think it's actually a lot simpler it's it's finding a good way to move forward together I I'm of the belief that the majority of the issues out there are things we can all in terms of things that people disagree with there's two things I think he at the way one do you think the majority of the district feels that way you're GonNa have to Sorta oh crazy and you know he's a worsening on the planet that is the kind of rhetoric that that needs to stop and it depends on US secondly if I am elected I would you should be able to justify every vote that you you cast you should be able to tell people I voted this way because of this reason or I couldn't vote for this because position you know this my way or highway attitude is is like utterly useless eight does not help as it doesn't get us anywhere we need to be able to say shop same places we go to the same places our kids are in the same schools so make yourself available if you're a representative get out there and talk to people don't be afraid of what they're gonNA say policy that is just the majority representation without trampling on the rights of the minority and two are you open to change are you open to being able to refine honey represented here elected how do you represent all of the people in your district and listen I listened to them enemy so I wonder if you've thought about twenty month old is maybe a little young for that but if you've thought about that with your with your five year old in how you think and talk about politics we're good policy but also a good office when you're actually there to do so I've seen a lot of people say oh I'm going to run a great optimistic positive campaign Xining that's what you're there to do your representative so listen to what they have say I've currently trying and we'll continue to try and succeed so with our kids we haven't really looked at this in terms of politics in the way you know media's has displayed in CNN or whatever that is something that we've told our kids in a broader way that you know your goals politics is the game I think policy making is really what it's all about all at the same time doing well yourself I mean it's not a an Arab binary choice that they work together anyone that's ever worked on a team knows than the team succeed being respectful I think we can actually get to where we need to be or maybe I'm just not business I like I like an optimist it one thing I think is freshman we look at it more as the choices you make should be good person and if you can be a good person at the end of the day that's all we really care about that manifest politics in a way that is educational that is hopeful that gets them civically engaged in how to keep them from seeing other people's the take your kids yeah well as a father say my twenty month old is the smartest twenty month old now I'm kidding the yet it's important and my wife and I have policymaking reflects the interests it reflects a desire to do something good that's what your goal should be it should be to leave the planet better than you found it should be the point is that you should be able to be heard you should be able to touch their congressmen we shouldn't be some people that are on you know in Washington and distant part of your community I mean to leave the person you meet better than when you first met them it should be to do the best you can for everyone your neighbors relatives friends Congressional district where you will be part of national politics federal politics but yet if people in the district probably have concerns that are very different than what is going on nationally doing that you're too afraid of of of justifying positions I hope that I won't do that in I'll try my best not to but that's that's talk about this ally as I said she so she's a physician and deals with patients from across the political spectrum so it doesn't matter to her what refined with whatever they want to do swimming that I am really curious ballots right now is those of us who follow politics really close for this reason and here's why it help or hurt the district this is an important function of the way we evaluate our our representatives and so my feeling is if you're not the best ways personal interaction being accountable and being transparent see you mention you have two little kids I I have an eight year sleepily everyone must be following politics as closely as we do the there's so much going on national politics right now I just flew in from DC this morning you know and that's you believe all she cares about is are you healthy and what can she do to get healthier you're not in any of you are what you can do to be even healthier in the future yeah I I think that's why you need to be active member of your district in your communities no matter where you are whether it be as a representative or US going into politics so be it a my wife's case it manifested as as going medicine in our kids case who knows what will manifest says but if there as long as people were league when an office will do so as well to reach out to anybody that calls or emails whether you're donor or just as a concerned citizen like it doesn't matter to me like the the five year old myself and I think one of the things that I sort of think about a lot struggle with a lot is how I talk to my kids about or traveling for work or whatever you come back home and and that's your investment whether like I said it's your neighbors kids your schools whatever I mean that's that's what matters taking up so much in my brain space but I suspect that's not actually true everywhere on the ground in so what what does that look like when you're running for office so you so being in your community talking to people letting them see that you know politics the way it's been portrayed as politics is far away everyone and maybe maybe some aspects of it are a really matter steeples if you're out there and fighting for them on the issues concerned about which you can only do if you talk if you see me on the street come talk to me if you see me anywhere for that matter come talk to me I am pretty approachable guy think I'm more than a people that live there country music stars all the way to farmers all the way to tech guys all the way to or whoever so you can only understand all that I think I made three and a half hours across the district wants so it's a big district and it's pretty diverse in terms of the types of industries they're types of by talking to people because I don't think everyone has every experienced that exists in the district so let's not pretend like we are already you know experts on those let's go out and learn what we so before we wrap up this first section with Ukraine is there anything else that you want to make sure that we talk about and the you know what I'd like to say is this we the focus of our campaign has been as mentioned several times in meeting people in the way we do this is fair and please don't hesitate to email there's link on there to contact us I check all of it so I'll get back I need to learn let's go out and talk to people in our fields that we don't live in our neighborhoods that have other concerns that are not just based on the way our family functions and parts of anywhere we can just talk to people because that's what we're gonNA continue to do for the next thirteen months we want to know what you think about the issues but online as our positions we want to know how you think I can better serve than the current representative and I think it's not just policy you know consulting firm or something like that from DC aside from that our website is Kieran for Congress dot com that's K. I. R. A. N. and you spell out the word for and on it I I think that's the best you can do in order to make it still at politics in Washington is more connected to people in wherever Mary County I mentioned earlier or any other county in this district willing to listen to you so long as my five year old is not having a meltdown I will happily spelt Smith spend as much time with you again that is the we have everything that you would think a campaign should have issue positions where we're going to be you know fundraising events you can get involved in all of that is is on anyway we can function and and that's the way the campaigns going to function going forward it's it's meant to be a campaign about the way normal people live their lives and not something that's engineered from a actions that happened or the story of the momentum that they just care if they can see some results on what they're interested in and that goes back saying as being able to represent the concerns of your district you're only priority and you can only do that by going around and talking to people the district is large for those of you who are listening do not know it is I think about see I do I will say this I think those town halls are important that I haven't really seen any of those so what I'd like to leave people with this we've been calling meet and greets and they're not fundraisers they are literally getting out of the community and trying to get into community centers or a senior centers or convince Lori that she should vote for you 'cause she's in your district right Laurie the word the words chicken in every pot Karen thank you and we will put that information on our website as well you can check it out as we have another guest who's coming running a couple of minutes late Lori and I are going to vamp for a couple of minutes and talk about a dumb cast which we are both part of so as I mentioned earlier in the recording Lori is the director as their opinions and share their perspectives on what's going on politically in their own community and because of that it's nick nuts started thinking about how he could support grassroots writer Karadzic talking politics are you WanNa start sure why not so jim cast is what we call a grassroots media and what we found through twenty sixteen twenty seven twenty eight was that there was trip digital strategy for dump cast I am the director of content jumped passed in so we can explain a little bit about what it is why we started it and what the heck it has to do with a model that allows people to submit content from anywhere so all across America in all fifty states uh there's been a very gradual but steady loss local journalism and local places where people can express the state's twitter pages and we are adding in a growing list of volunteers for each state to help connect the makes sure that whatever content is you know put out is actually seen by somebody so we have facebook pages for has a network of podcasts. We have I believe seventeen at this point podcasts that are all part of the network and what that means is that we support each other and we are looking for content from the grassroots organizations from activists from candidates to be her and we we share each other's contents a we help inform each other about things that are going on listen content producers and together we of course incorporating a few months ago as a Bible One C. Four leaders throughout my life I've tried to find opportunities to serve and I'm running for the Senate for the same reason I joined the army I feel like this is a time of crisis the US Senate from Tennessee James Welcome back to talking politics aren't used to be back still for people who may not remember veteran Amana faith my track record of service resonates I believe this is very much within reach if everyone who wants change joins the team to make it happen much like how I think my grandfather's generation felt after Pearl Harbor so I walked into an army recruiting station instead I want to be part of the fight sign me up I had to get an age waiver folks share that sort of information but what makes him cast unique is way are a volunteer organization as well so our focus is to really but then we also share the episodes and and help people find other content that they might really like and so we're not all the same Mike content my podcast and I need to step up and do more so there was a Senate race in Tennessee I just in twenty eighteen not too long ago and the different people who wanna get involved from organizations to people who just want to share things about the state and and stay informed about their states and decided I needed to serve in another way I saw the problems with military sexual assault problems which really persists to this day so I switched the Jag Corps became an army prosecute Tennessee in two thousand twenty I spent a lot of time traveling the state with people about what they need but aren't getting from their elected officials something that I am often turnout last cycle and our super majority Republican supermajority responded to those increases passing severe voter registration restriction laws that James One of the things Laurie one of the things that Tennessee really struggles with his voter registration and voter your previous episode with us which was many months ago now at this point maybe they just a a little bit of background about yourself and while you're running for Senate sure I'd be happy to Royal Hospital closures per person we have an opioid epidemic that is ravaging our communities and there's no national solution aren't even talking about it the trade war hurts our into a a wide range of content as so we are now joins our our second guest at this is James McClure who is running for Senate yeah and so what two brands talking politics has to do with besides me is that a dumb cast had economy more than any other state so when you look at the fact that we're in a presidential year with high tide voter turnout I need six more points things aren't getting better and I'm an outsider as you all know but maybe the rest of your listeners don't know I was practicing law on nine eleven as a thirty year old lawyer and after our nation was attacked I felt all the service the people aren't registered or we're in the bottom we're like forty nine fifty s in voter registration and voter turnout how do you think channel systematic barriers to voting into registration and those have only been increased since last cycle we had some significant increases in voter registration actually criminalize the process voter registration now luckily that's being held up in the courts but we are fighting an uphill

When My Mentor Told Me I Couldn't Do It

"What is going on squad welcome to the James is make money on my podcast the number one show for you WanNa make more money changed people's lives and have more of an impact on the world although spending thousands of dollars on a website or even paid ads my name's Brian Mark I've been finished coach for four years in my four years do it like he actually thought that I was gonNA fail and so for him he wasn't telling me to not do it because he didn't like me he was actually he was actually considering the fact that I was going to fail and he didn't want me to fail so he was trying to protect me and so if you're listening to this and oftentimes it's because we think that maybe they don't like that they don't they're not looking out for us but I think that my mentor at the time he genuinely thought that I wasn't going to think that it was possible for me he wasn't doing it because he didn't like me and I think that's a big kind of thing that I want to touch on because I think that if somebody tells us that we can't do something this podcast one hundred percent relate when we have people in our lives that we really care about that think that it's not possible and somebody that we really care about and so to have somebody that was at that level tell me that I wasn't going to make it actually hurt me quite a bit and he told me he just told me that it wasn't possible in fact the people tell us that we can't do something I honestly think that it's not because they don't like you or that I think that the core thing is that they're trying to your guide my clients make ten thousand dollars a month with instagram stories now let's get into shipped and so when I had this mentor somebody that I really looked up to told me that basically wasn't GonNa make it it was a huge slap in the face and I think that if you're listening to have somebody in your life right now just doesn't think that online training is feasible or doesn't think that it's possible I think that it's like a far fetched dream I think something that's really important to note is that when that's what happened when somebody told me I couldn't do it so I've been building this all my business for a while and when I first started building it there was a lot of speculation about the online training world and I don't know if it's GonNa work and online training this isn't really a fad right so a lot of people have these misconceptions and I think that when my mentor told me that he didn't act he actually told me that I should work for him because he wasn't on the Finnish writer he's like man I actually think you should work for me because I think that you'd be a great trainer for me and I think that it's really hard being in yeah I remember I actually had this mentor and I was working out with him and I was working out I actually hired him to be my personal trainer and this was somebody who's like really widely renowned in the all greene areas people knew who he was and I remember I told them about my ambitions because when I first started the business I was super ambitious also man I'm going to build this business and have a bunch of clients and I want to this is something I really want to do I'm really passionate about it and I remember somebody who is really really looked up to kind of dampen or my head like that's vision when this person told me that I was GONNA fail it didn't matter what he thought about me because I already saw myself having what his opinion that we really respect will tell us like man like I dunno like this thing that you're trying to do like I like pretty hard I've heard a lot of people fail at it and I've heard some I think that I had to rely on myself and it comes down to two things so being able to accomplish your goals and being able to accomplish things that you want to do in your life comes down to two things and only two things one of them is external and one of them is when I had somebody tell me to my face that I wasn't going to build a successful finish business it didn't matter what they thought about me because I can already see journal I think that everything's starts internal actual and start there the first thing that you need to have if you want to accomplish your goals for me the biggest thing that I had that allowed me to be successful I quit my job and I took my business online in last year I helped over one hundred trainers quit their jobs and businesses fulltime online? So if you're brand new here welcome I just don't think you're GonNa make it and for me this was somebody that was really respected in the Finnish face obvious person that over one hundred clients and he you know he's like super decorated in his field I was doing this and nothing was getting in my way so that vision of me successful running this business having a bunch of trainers working with me full when somebody that I really cared about basically told me that I wasn't going to make it to my face the biggest thing that I had that allowed me to overcome his opinion of me was my vision I'm not talking about my vision as in like Oh dude set a goal like I think a lot of people have this like these the vision at this idea wrong and when I say vision I mean that having a big team of people being able to impact thousands of people like I had this and so I think that this vision was is what like dozens and dozens of clients right like when somebody told me that like the online training market is saturated it didn't matter because in my head I had already decided this is what is going on squad welcome to the teams make money on the trainer podcast and today's topic is awesome like online trainings really hard when somebody tells me that I can't do something like that that is exactly the drive and the dedication that need to push through and prove them wrong their beliefs on us and they'll say like Oh dude I don't know if that's possible and so we allow other people's opinions to come inside of our heads and then we start seeing the world is to dampen their own vision and so we'll talk about our goals to somebody that we care about a friend family member a coworker will confide in somebody and then they will imprint it to you and so I think my mentor is trying to protect me but this is how I operate so when somebody tells me that I can't do something right when somebody's like man I just don't think that you're going to do it I just don't think that it's the overcome other people's opinions and I think this is really important to talk about because I think that a lot of people don't do that a lot of people allow other people's opinion all my fitness coach I think if it's really hard being on their fitness coach and I just don't think you're gonNA make it like it's just really it's a really tough field you've got to build your audience you've got to do all these things and I just want to you're gonNa make it so I think you should work for me and focused only on my vision was what allowed me to stay focused on my goals when he thought and other people thought that I just wasn't gonNA make it so vision is the first number one because the only opinion that matters is the one that I have myself so I know I like absolutely like one thousand percent no second component which is external is work ethic because if you have vision but you don't have work ethic you're just wishing right and I think some people do that some people are like oh like kaput really negative spin on what I was doing and he's like men I remember the conversation you had with me I was working out and he has like men like I've got to tell you like all my training is really hard bastet and we lose sight of our own vision and we start taking on their perspective and so from the internal aspect of being able to block out other people's opinions who would skip like friends a friendly events like friend events so that I could stay home and work on my business like I was the dude I still Emma Dude that wakes up at five am like this is what I'm GonNa do I'm GonNA become this person I'm going to be a successful trainer I'm going to have this amount of clients I'm GonNa make this amount of money I'm GonNa make this kind of difference in the world like this is and I think that the only thing that my belief is that the only opinion that matters is the one that happened myself so for me when somebody told me that I I basically wasn't going to build it on my fitness business waiting and water but for me I think that knowing exactly what you want so I knew exactly what I want I was like men like I really appreciate your telling me this that you don't think I'm GonNa make it but gotta do and it doesn't matter what anybody says like this is happening like this is vision so vision is the first component and the second which is internal using a morning so that I can work on business for three to four hours before anyone even wakes up like I'm the dude that goes to bed at ten PM and works like a majority of the day on this this is what I want and so my work ethic of like I'm willing to do whatever it takes combined with my vision of knowing exactly what I want accomplishment with Oh exactly what I want and and then I'm willing to work for it I'm willing to I'm talking when I'm talking about work ethic I'm talking about like I was the dude life is what allowed me to overcome other people's opinions of me it was it's would allow me to overcome people telling me like you know like I just don't think you're gonNA make it dude like it was really hard to build an online business while people were going through a recession because I didn't let anybody else in and that's the key right it doesn't matter what they say about only trainings really hard like that was five years ago and I'm like dude that's cool but I knew I wanted and so I went from to k month to five K. month can have like a really strong work ethic without vision but I think that is where you spinning your wheels and you're working really hard but you're not really sure what you're working towards and you're just kind of like you know you're just kind of I pray to the universe that just get a successful business and they have vision without work ethic and that's just wishing that's not vision and I don't really believe in that and I think that work ethic you it only matters what you say about you it doesn't matter somebody else doesn't believe in you it doesn't matter if if John or Sarah don't agree with your opinion it only can you into make it because I know exactly what I want and I don't let anybody else in I don't let Johnny or Sarah in or even my previous mentor and it's funny because go to bed after everyone else goes to bed and work on your vision as much as humanly possible in order to make that happen like that's what it takes not like oh I work on my business once in a while and I kind of want to do this it's like I'm willing to do whatever the fuck it takes like that's what it takes and so I made it and I'm two ten K..

Welcome to our love story spotify original from podcast every week. A real couple recounts how they met how they fell in love and the biggest moments of their relationship. Now let's hear their love story The first time. I met david. I had just gotten out of a class at the growlings. It was really late at night. It was like ten thirty And i was about to walk to my car by myself. And it's in like the heart of hollywood melrose and my teacher was like whoa. You shouldn't walk to car by yourself. So she asked a nearby group of students to walk me to my car and it happened to david and his friends and i remember. We chatted the entire time for my car. And i thought this guy. He is charming and he. It's funny really made an impression on me and later when i would ask him about that night. He has zero recollection of it. So i i apparently made quite an impression on him which really makes me feel good so I do not remember that story. That sam just told and i would have remembered it because i remember faces and i definitely remembered hers my first time. I thought that i met sam. She was on stage and we were going to see a show. And everyone was talking. Otis sam girl is so funny and i'm very competitive as as she's like whatever she's not that funny but she was and i remember just seeing her kind of flop around stage like a muppet and it made me laugh and then we asked to do a show with us in our improv group. She just hit it off with all of us. But i think especially me and yeah. That's that's how i remember meeting her. And that's how one could hope to be described on their first memory as as a muppet flopping around. I mean that's what we know to me. I do love the muppets okay. Well that's good. But i think the reason david quickly became my best friend out here in los angeles is he just had i. It's weird saying like he's the male version of me but it really what hit. Don't make a face but it was. We had such a similar style with comedy. And i knew if i would say something that would set him up and he would going exactly where i was thinking and it was so easy with him and we soon started filming things together. Or just saying like oh yeah. Let's let's hang out to do this. We would go to lunch all the time or go on walks and these were strictly friends. My at the time husband knew him and he would come out to lunch with us as well but it was just so easy and also just seeing somebody who could make me laugh like that. I would just like draw. He's very he was very magnetic. I was just drawn him. Yeah we're very similar in many ways sense of humor and competitive so we used to play basketball. I used to crush her. She may have been a little bit more physical than she should have been on the basketball court. I actually the only thing that ever happened. That was a little unto ward one time after a shot joe or rehearsal or something. Everyone like fell asleep on my floor. We were just exhausted and she may have held my hand and i was like that's when i realized that like and at that point she was also separated. But at that point i think even i was like oh. This is more than just friendship. Our first date is interesting because it wasn't even set up like a date. We were still friends at the time. And i was in the sunday company at the groundlings and there's We had a big opening night. And there's a big party afterwards and after it was like two in the morning and he said hey. Can you hang out. do you wanna talk. And i was like sure. And it wasn't weird because again. This is the person that you know. I'd been texting all night telling him how great the show had gone. And how excited i was and so i met him at his apartment and all just up From the party. And i was wearing these big heels and he wanted to go take a walk at the park right across from his apartment which was pan pacific park and so he gave me these slippers that his dad had given him. I think their size like twelve or something. So i am wearing these clowns shoes and we go over to the park and literally like Falling along the walking trail. And we you know talk a little bit about the show and what's going on and then we're just quiet walking. And after a while he said you know don't you and i was like what no way. And he was quiet for a little bit longer and he's like that. I love you and it was the last thing that i was expecting him to say like i. There was no like this is going to happen. Nothing and we kept walking. And i was quite for a while and i was really thinking about it like we. Oh wait and so the first thing is that back was i think i love you too. Because it was just dawning on me. And so we strolled a little bit longer and then we happened upon a bench and we sat there and at this point it's like three or four in the morning because we've been like walking and talking and i just like nuzzle into him and he put his arm around me and i had my legs draped across his lap with like my clown shoes dangling off and we just sat and it was so funny to us.

And i knew if i would say something that would set him up and he would go exactly where i was thinking and it was so easy with him and we soon started filming things together. Or just saying like oh yeah. Let's let's hang out to do this. We would go to lunch all the time or go on walks and these were strictly friends. My out time husband knew him and he would come out to lunch with us as well but it was just so easy and also just seeing somebody who could make me laugh like that. I would just like draw. His he was very magnetic. I was just drawn to him. Yeah we're very similar in many ways has sense of humor and competitive so we used to play basketball. I used to crush her. Yeah it was a little bit more physical than she should have been on the basketball court. I actually the only thing that ever happened.

And she may have held my hand and i was like That's when i realized that like and at that point she was also separated. But at that point i think even i was like oh. This is more than just friendship. Our first date is interesting because it wasn't even set up like a date. We were still friends at the time. And i was in the sunday company at the groundlings and there's We had a big opening night. And there's a big party afterwards and after it was like two in the morning and he said hey.

But this one fits pretty well into the personal development category. South oughta read the article here for you. If you like this episode definitely checkout. Optimal finance daily for more. But for now, let's get right to it as we optimize your life. PS we all struggle by j money of budgets are sexy dot com. If you're feeling down about your finances, or career, or anything else going on today's post is to assure you that you're not alone and that no matter how successful you are problems. Man, hater's will still find a way to get you. I literally got this Email few hours ago, which sparked today's post, high J money. Just one question. How are you? So happy all the time. I've been listening to your podcast and keep wondering this many way. Thanks and have a nice week in the podcast is awesome. How many times have any of us felt or asked us about someone else? I do it at least thirteen times a day, when that's an improvement over the thirty six times, I used to I assured him that I certainly have my downtimes just like anyone else, and that perhaps one day, we should do it ten things that sock about our money in life episode. But as much as I feel like I'm good at devil, djing, all my fails here on the blog admittedly, the podcast itself, skews, overly optimistic and fun, still, it's important to remember that we all suck at times, and often others will tell. Oh, you just how much whether you like to hear it more not here are a handful of comments off my hate mail dock that continues to grow as the years pass, quote, today's post was so worthless and a waste of time. Quote, I lift your podcast with Paula love her, but you sound like a clueless sixteen year old valley girl. Sorry, but to these old years museum childish, quote to be honest. I don't appreciate the way you come off in your posts. Give an air of arrogance that rubs me the wrong way. There's a fine line between confidence and talking his you cross it and ease language I find inappropriate for a budget in life blog quote the content is good. But my mom subscribing because I have a difficult time with the grammar style of this blog. I feel like I'm reading text messages, not trying to save a retirement quote. I don't really care to read about your life for the few nuggets of financial advice. You give my time is too valuable quote, tired of the awesomely. Awesome. I really felt like I'll. Listening to a used car salesperson quote, not the most professional blog way too. Many smiley faces on everything. I also cannot believe you rent you did introduce me to rockstar finance, though. So thanks, little. Do they know the one who created it quote? He says really nice things, but looks like a weirdo, but I guess that's why people like him. He's like the Miley Cyrus of finance, and quote, and then the most recent which concerned me in more ways than one quote. I learned nothing from the article except the writers of bragging to his rich and should talk last before the rest of us, kill Anita him and quote. And this is exactly. Why remain anonymous online? So basically no matter how it looks on the outside. We are all dealing with stuff on the inside not to mention the actual stuff going through alongside the colorful commentary here, a few things weighing on me in real life. Presently number one is getting harder and harder to keep my projects afloat. The more they grow the more attention their demand. Adding, and is starting to affect my work life balance as great as a problem is I told myself when I had kids that I'm not working nights and weekends. And while I'm a lot closer than my used to be the work is overflowing into them. Again. Update were now on a twenty month in a row record of not opening up my laptop on weekends a blogger. Miracle number two is getting harder to pay attention to the money making side of these projects. The more I blog or podcast or build things the less, I want to deal with making money off them, because all of these have always been hobby, first business later, seeing how I now of a family of four to support I can't exactly nor it update on still ignoring it with a family of five, now, number three, I feel like I'm not using my full potential. Maybe I'm just not thinking of things, the right way. But for the past six to twelve months, a felt like something is missing. I can't put my finger on it. It was just a small feeling at first as I know we're all trying to figure it out. But as the months continue to pass the pains of. Idleness has grown along with it update. I still feel like this way many days and have found a good solution to it yet. Pardon me is proud for how much I've unhooked from the hustling world, but the other feels like squandering all the potential for really doing something good in the community together, and often miss the days of love drop and working towards something bigger than myself. Plus, it'd be amazing to include my kids now and doing something powerful for others. Number four. My wife is having a horrible time getting back into the workforce as now officially been a year since she got her PHD and outside of a few lease interviews here, and there, nothing major is panned out on the plus is, she spending gobs of hours, hanging out and loving all over our kids. We pulled him out of daycare last year to save two thousand dollars a month crazy, but I can tell it's starting to get to her, which, of course, affects our family intern and only as the importance of me making more money for my projects update. She's now been in the workforce going on three years with multiple raises and back to feeling. Her confidence self again go wifey. So how does one cope with at all the feeling of failure men struggle? Well, I obviously haven't figured it out yet. But here are a few things that do help keep me a little sane. Maybe they'll work for you to one. I keep a list of all the nice things. People say about me too. I literally have Google doc, where I copy. And paste all the kind words people have said about me or my projects over the years, anytime, I'm having an unusually hard day. My open it up and try to make myself. Feel better doesn't always work, but it definitely helps lessen the staying to keep a list of all the accomplishments. I've done my featured some of them at the start of my hundred things list the other month, still at number twenty six another fail. But the beautiful part about these guys is that no matter what someone does or says, no one can take them away from you once you've accomplished them. You've accomplished them, you can forever be proud of yourself. This helps with the potential. Problem too since you can. At least see how hard you've been working three. I remember how happy I am just to be alive. This is probably the biggest reason of all why tend to be happier than not any morning. I wake up with breath as a friend licencee. I can't help but be faithful incredibly cheesy, but incredibly true because even on our worst of days is better to be feeling than feeling. Nothing at all. It means we're alive all this to say, everyone struggles, what makes the difference is how you cope with it. Sometimes we're better at it than others, but pleased by no means think you're alone in this, or that is not normal. You have to have the lows in order to have the highs. They wouldn't be highs if they were all that way, also find it's helpful to stop comparing your raw footage to everyone else's highlight reel as my friend Shannon likes to say, because rarely do you see the entire picture when it comes to blogs or Facebook, or any other forms. Social media. That's cropping up no matter how awesome are happy. Someone looks on the outside. They've all other issues just like anyone else. So remember that you're never alone in this everyone struggles, do your best today and start a fresh new one tomorrow. You just listen to the post, titled PS, we all struggle by j money of budgets are sexy dot com. A real quick, thanks to anchor for hosting this podcast anchor is the easiest way to make a podcast.

So it sounds great download the anchor app, or go to anchor dot FM to get started. Jay money is a friend of the show of met him a couple of times a fin, con likely will, again, this year, he does come across a super happy guy was kind of sad to hear that he has documented all the negative feedback, generally, I find that kind of stuff very unhelpful, unless it's mixed with good stuff to like those ones that I read in this blog, they weren't very helpful I'd say, but he did have a list of all the good and of accomplishments that he keeps, which is a great idea. I've received a few handwritten letters from some listeners over the years, and I save them, maybe not very minimalist, but they serve a purpose for me. And remind me, why I'm doing this. When I see native reviews or when people say, a monotone or eight my voice, so I appreciate when people have nice things to say and I love those letters. And again, J money is narrated very frequently on optimal finance daily where they're oppose about how to save more and spend less automating, your finances, what to invest in all that kind of stuff. So do check out that show for more. But that's enough for today have a great rest of your day, and I'll see you tomorrow with a post from David king of rap to two dot com where your optimal life awaits.

Welcome to our love story a spotify original from podcast every week. A real couple recounts how they met how they fell in love and the biggest moments of their relationship now. Let's hear their love story. The first time. I met david. I had just gotten out of a class at the growlings. It was really late at night. It was like ten thirty And i was about to walk to my car by myself. And it's in the heart of hollywood on melrose and my teacher was like. Oh you shouldn't walk to car by yourself. So she asks a nearby group of students to walk me to my car and it happened to be david and his friends and i remember. We chatted the entire time to my car. And i thought this guy. He is charming. He has funny. Funny really made an impression on me and later when i would ask them about that night. He has zero recollection of it. So i i apparently made quite an impression on him. Which really makes me feel good. So i do not remember that story that sam just told and i would have remembered it because i remember faces and i definitely will remember hers my first time. I thought that i met sam. She was on stage and we were going to see a show and everyone was talking. Oh the sam girl is so funny. And i'm very competitive. As she was like whatever's you not that funny but she was. And i remember just seeing her of flop around stage like a muppet and it made me laugh and then we asked her to do a show with us in our improv group. And she just hit it off with all of us but a think especially me. And that's that's how i remember meeting her. And that's how one could hope to be described on their first memory as as a muppet flopping around. I mean that's when you know love them up okay. Well then i guess. That's but i think the reason david quickly became my best friend out here in los angeles is he just had i. It's weird saying like he's the male version of me but it really what hit. Don't make a face but it was. We had such a similar style with comedy. And i knew if i would say something it would set him up and he would go exactly where i was thinking and it was so easy with him and we soon started filming things together. Or just saying like oh yeah. Let's let's hang out to do this. We would go to lunch all the time or go on walks and these were. I mean strictly friends. My husband knew him and he would come out to lunch with us as well but it was just so easy and also just seeing somebody who could make me laugh like that. I would just like draw. He's he was very magnetic. And i was just drawn him. Yeah we're very similar in many ways has sense of humor and competitive so we used to play basketball. I used to crush her. She may have been a little bit more physical than she should have been On the basketball court. I actually the only thing that ever happened. That was a little untoward one time after a show or rehearsal or something fell asleep on my floor. We were just exhausted. And she may have held my hand and i was like That's when i realized that like at that point she was also separated. But at that point i think even i was like oh. This is more than just friendship. Our first date is interesting because it wasn't even set up like a date. We were still friends at the time. And i was in the sunday company at the groundlings. And there's a we had a big opening night and there's a big party afterwards and after it was like two in the morning and he said hey. Can you hang out. do you wanna talk. And i was like sure. And it wasn't weird because again. This is the person that i had been texting all night telling him how great the show had gone. And how excited i was and so i met him at his apartment and i was all dressed up from the party and i was wearing these big heels and he wanted to go take at the park right across from his apartment which was panpacific park and so he gave me these old slippers that his dad had given him. I think their size. Like twelve or something so i am wearing these like clown shoes and we go over to the park and literally like flimflam falling him along the walking trail and we talk a little bit about the show. And what's going on and then we're just quiet walking. And after a while he said you know don't you. And i was like what no way and he was quiet for a little bit longer. And he's like that. I love you and it was the last thing that i was expecting him to say like there was no like. Oh this is going to happen. Nothing and we just kept walking. And i was quiet for a while and i was really thinking about it like we. Oh oh wait. And so the first thing i said i think i love you too. Because it was just dawning on me. And so we strolled a little bit longer and then we happened upon a bench and we sat there and at this point it's like three or four in the morning because we've been like walking and talking and i just like nuzzle into him and he put his arm around me and i had my legs draped across his lap with like my clown shoes just dangling off and we just sat and it was so funny to us. We're like what is happening. We're best friends here. Just drop and the love you and it felt so natural and there was no weirdness because this person knew me better than anyone else in my life and so yeah i remember after this like magical. I think okay. Lean for kiss and he shot back. And i was like i'm gonna throw up. Oh god no. I've done it all wrong. And he's like owner. No i i. I want to do this the right way and i was like. Oh okay why did. I feel compelled to tell her that i loved her that very night. I don't know i guess. I'm not a huge believer in the cosmos. But i guess the stars aligned like it was two in the morning. We were walking around. She just had a big night for herself. I needed the attention. No no she just had a big night. And i think for me. It just felt like it was coming out and it was. I felt like it was kind of obvious. And i guess i wanted to say it and i thought her being there to the morning walking in this park and the bench and it just felt right and i thought she was in the same place. Can you imagine like what are you talking about this thing. I didn't. I knew that that wasn't going to happen. I knew how she felt so it felt simple and easy and everyone talks about. You gotta fight for it. I'm like it shouldn't be that much fighting. You'll get into those fights later when the kids app. Yeah just sort. Felt simple and easy. And i wanted to do it.

It was like ten thirty And i was about to walk to my car by myself. And it's in like the heart of hollywood on melrose and my teacher was like whoa. You shouldn't walk to car by yourself. So she asked a nearby group of students to walk me to my car and it happened to david and his friends and i remember. We chatted the entire time for my car. And i thought this guy. He is charming and he. It's funny really made an impression on me and later when i would ask him about that night. He has zero recollection of it. So i i apparently made quite an impression on him which really makes me feel good so I do not remember that story. That sam just told and i would have remembered it because i remember faces and i definitely remembered hers my first time. I thought that i met sam. She was on stage and we were going to see a show. And everyone was talking. Otis sam girl is so funny and i'm very competitive as she's like whatever she's not that funny but she was and i remember just seeing her kind of flop around stage like a muppet and it made me laugh and then we asked to do a show with us in our improv group. She just hit it off with all of us. But i think especially me and yeah. That's that's how i remember meeting her. And that's how one could hope to be described on their first memory as as a muppet flopping around. I mean that's what we know to me. I do love the muppets okay. Well that's good. But i think the reason david quickly became my best friend out here in los angeles is he just had i. It's weird saying like he's the male version of me but it really what hit. Don't make a face but it was. We had such a similar style with comedy. And i knew if i would say something that would set him up and he would going exactly where i was thinking and it was so easy with him and we soon started filming things together. Or just saying like oh yeah. Let's let's hang out to do this. We would go to lunch all the time or go on walks and these were strictly friends. My at the time husband knew him and he would come out to lunch with us as well but it was just so easy and also just seeing somebody who could make me laugh like that. I would just like draw. He's very he was very magnetic. I was just drawn him. Yeah we're very similar in many ways sense of humor and competitive so we used to play basketball. I used to crush her. She may have been a little bit more physical than she should have been on the basketball court. I actually the only thing that ever happened. That was a little unto ward one time after a show or rehearsal or something. Everyone like fell asleep on my floor. We were just exhausted and she may have held my hand and i was like that's when i realized that like and at that point she was also separated. But at that point i think even i was like oh. This is more than just friendship. Our first date is interesting because it wasn't even set up like a date. We were still friends at the time. And i was in the sunday company at the groundlings and there's We had a big opening night. And there's a big party afterwards and after it was like two in the morning and he said hey. Can you hang out. do you wanna talk. And i was like sure. And it wasn't weird because again. This is the person that you know. I'd been texting all night telling him how great the show had gone. And how excited i was and so i met him at his apartment and all just up From the party. And i was wearing these big heels and he wanted to go take a walk at the park right across from his apartment which was pan pacific park and so he gave me these slippers that his dad had given him. I think their size like twelve or something. So i am wearing these clown shoes and we go over to the park and literally like Falling along the walking trail. And we you know talk a little bit about the show and what's going on and then we're just quiet walking. And after a while he said you know don't you and i was like what no way. And he was quiet for a little bit longer and he's like that. I love you and it was the last thing that i was expecting him to say like i. There was no like this is going to happen. Nothing and we kept walking. And i was quite for a while and i was really thinking about it like we. Oh wait and so the first thing is that back was i think i love you too. Because it was just dawning on me. And so we strolled a little bit longer and then we happened upon a bench and we sat there and at this point it's like three or four in the morning because we've been like walking and talking and i just like nuzzle into him and he put his arm around me and i had my legs draped across his lap with like my clown shoes dangling off and we just sat and it was so funny to us. We're like what is happening like. We're best friends here. We aren't as drop. And the i love you. And it felt so natural.

Nurses battle the third wave

"Support for seattle now comes from the pacific northwest waterways association with the columbia snake river system providing. Clean energy and sustainable. Commerce has washington aims for carbon neutral by twenty thirty learn more at p. nwa dot net slash river values. It's patricia murphy. it's wednesday and this is seattle. Now you've seen the numbers and heard the call to stay home. This thanksgiving we are deep in the third surge coded and yesterday another record for cases the fourth in a week fourteen thousand people have been diagnosed in just the last week enough people to fill the old key arena while we're busy staying away from each other. Healthcare workers are getting a close up view of this pandemic in a minute. We'll talk with advanced nurse practitioner. Heather stephen selby about the challenges of testing and caring for patients during the surge. But first let's get you caught up. The governor has appointed dr wu. Mayor shaw as the new secretary of health for washington. Shot will take over for dr john wiezman who had plans to step down prior to the pandemic shah is currently the executive director for harris county public health in texas a wedding near ritzville washington earlier. This month has led to nearly forty corona virus cases grant county health department is urging everyone who attended the event to get tested and quarantine until november twenty. First governor inslee is new restrictions on weddings. Include no more than thirty people at ceremonies and indoor receptions are not permitted and the seven thirty seven max could be cleared to fly again. King five reports that the federal aviation administration is set to lift the twenty month grounding following two crashes that killed three hundred forty six people if the plane is cleared. American airlines says it set to resume flights by the end of the year. As cohen cases grow so does the strain on the medical system. We are eight months into this. Pandemic and healthcare workers are battered heather. Stevens selby is an advanced nurse. Practitioner and the director of clinical support for health point community health centers. She spoke to us from a kobe. Test site in. Renton where she works. It's a drive through site and we plan for five hundred people a day and we are well over a thousand a day. Now oh my gosh. Yeah so you're seeing this at work right now right now right now. Yeah and you've all been working nonstop for months. Though at the weight of this disease is huge. And it's so kinetic right now. Things are moving so so quickly. Burn out was an issue in the medical field even before the pandemic. How is this landing for you and the people you work with. Well we certainly are fatigue. People aren't taking their holidays are not getting time off. People are fired in. It's hard to keep up with all the changes. are you. Seeing people leave the profession right now because they need to do that for their for their health at this point. Yes i think there's a couple things one yes. Health is part of it too many of our staff for example might be single parents And so we're seeing a pretty significant in Of some of our staff some of our nurses and our medical assistance dental assistants in the reason for that most often is childcare as well and quite frankly again the pace in in fatiguing it can't keep up. Yeah yeah heather back. In the spring there was a big concern about personal protective equipment. P is that still a concern for you Yeah we're going back to the same problem. So the biggest issue right now remains those and ninety five. They're used extensively in the icu's eighties so We're having significant problems with that and other big win. It's coming up right now. Is gloves We only have one manufacturer in the us. That actually makes gloves. That is a problem. We moved a lot of our manufacturing for personal protective equipment overseas. And we're not the only country needing ppe as you point out It's a global issue yet again Same with the gowns and so we actually got creative and are using washable gowns. That are fluid resistant. We are requiring. Ppe so like masks. Yup the master re warn can can be anywhere from three to ten times on an end ninety five a mask wearing right now which is a surgical mask. I wear it all day then i'll toss so it's a. It's a severe problem and we are not alone. We actually ever own little trading program off line to say well you have this one. I have that. I'll give you five for your four. You know that kind of thing so You know. Washington state has done an amazing job. But we're not the only state suffering this fate. It must be incredibly unnerving to work this way. And i wonder if you're worried about getting sick i think it's it weighs on all of us to a point You know all of this going to healthcare knowing a risk For example when. I'm in the test site. I go home my robes in the garage. I strip there. I immediately put it in the washer night on hot with soap and water and a sneak up the back stairs and go shower and then join my family. But i keep the social distance. No hugging no no anything And i really haven't hugged my family. Since the beginning my family knows how to wear a mask real well at this point and they know my new look so they're used to when i think about all the things that you're doing to protect yourself and to protect your family i wanna ask you what you think when you see people out and about not wearing masks doing things that are dangerous you know it. It really breaks my heart because the biggest challenge for them to think about is that You're affecting someone else when you're not putting your mask on so you may feel okay about yourself. But it's that young mother with her baby in the stroller going through the grocery store. You're putting at risk. Who knows that the baby has you know. Health issues are the mother. I mean i just cringe. I'll give you an example. So there's some coaches in american football. Who loved to wear the mask around. Their chan is called the chin mask and their noses hanging out. It drives me bananas. Because that's not gonna help you or you know you've got the ones that we're like an earring. Think i don't really need it because i'm in a big stadium. Sorry you're really need to wear it all the time you know. Obviously the work. I do. I will say something to someone very politely. Canadians are very polite. And i'm canadian. That's how we can pull it off but i do try to say to someone. Oh look your is falling down if you pull it up a little higher or even say oh that looks a little small. I'm a nurse. Here's here's a website. You can go to get the right size. You know i try to help. People not be aggressive but there are people who just absolutely refuse to wear it and they're not thinking about the greater good of their communities. This is definitely the time where we have to think about other people besides ourselves and moving into this holiday season. We're going to be making a lot of difficult decisions about what we should be doing versus what we want to do. How they're any messages for people. Before thanksgiving i would say Really listen to our health. Experts here in washington state and our governor stay home. Just have your thanksgiving with your immediate family. Don't invite friends over santa over goodies to the next door neighbor elderly leave it in a bag knocked on the door. Keep your mask on walkaway but know that. They'll appreciate that that a pumpkin pie. You left at their doorstep. I have a daughter who just started college. She's in bellingham. First time in my life she won't be home for thanksgiving and it really clear. You need to stay where you're safe and where you've got that the familiarity of your roommates. That's a tough call for any anybody. But i employed people just follow the governor's its direction. In the in the health experts guidance it will pay off ten. Fold if we can just talk. This insert to retract the positive cases. Stay safe by not gathering so we can gather next year. Yes the message from the governor. Heather stevens selby a nurse and director of clinical support for health point community health centers. Great to talk to you. Thank you so much for your work for your dedication during time and for your injury right now. Oh you're welcome. And i wanted to say thank you to all those healthcare workers out there no matter what kind of healthcare worker you are. You're doing amazing work. You make a difference in thank you to the community. That's really trying hard to stop this disease. I appreciate it. Thanks for listening to seattle. Now the show is produced by claire.

"Certain technique for killing though can be used all the time contact chuck is a murderer the there is a there is a certain technique that clip in just isolated Hello and welcome to yet another edition with the anniversary Mexican logger that Joe Street is putting on tap for their seventh anniversary coming up this weekend doing conversations with Kevin Abbott from Barrel Amongst Brewing Company in Boca Raton last week we met cabin as he came up to do a collaboration and do some real beer tasting now and of course joining me is Mr Kevin Abbott from barrel amongst bring in Boca Raton we've had a hell of a day today with the collaboration brewing here down at Church Street but we been able to sit down highly scientific I mean it isn't a simple as people think it is you know four ingredients boil it you know and an kind of magic happens add yeast and they go lancelot today Kevin you guys are excellent in terms of teaching immediate light me what goes on with a brewery there is a lot to it it's on this show is head brewer jump for and owner all just street brewing company Lisa Greg and we'll be sampling some of the wonderful bruise that are how did this tell rat's mouth also sitting over on the side there but not near a microphone is Lisa Gregor who is ONA and all around good person here Joe Straight there is a lot to it however now that we finished with what's the name of the beer can be I think did we decide on your Abigail Sister Abigail and the reason for the thing Yankee pump studios now the big Yankee craft beer up coast near the team in all the Britain Yankee crafted cast this show number three hundred thirty I felt Clark the bread and welcome to the palm and on this week's edition will contain Tim Brew With Joe Street Brewing Company and this week whistling some of his fears that he had brought with him joining us Ed what is it twenty eight th no what's Today Twenty six twenty six okay so twenty seven twenty eight twenty nine there we go big one so he's filling a cake he'll join us a little bit Available at Mirela months in Florida this was recorded after a hectic day for then new collaboration Belgian double to grab a beer and enjoy a wrestling fan there is freshly wrestling fans here at Church Street there's some independent shows that go on here so I thought it was a cool little thing plus where Church Street brewing with Church Street which is going to be called Sister Abigail and we sat down in a quiet spot berry cranked Houghton a few bottles and blow up the data that Beta very much for allowing us to come in Lisa and chuck four who you bring with today is going to join us later on but he has to fill a cake and he has to fill barrel amongst and sister Abigail seems to fit with both of those names so it made a lot of sense to me but I think the intention if I'm correct and I may not be is the that it's the it's a wrestling moves a finishing maneuver by character name Bray Wyatt in in WWe and I'm afraid profession in the big day out save some and put it into a barrel and we were talking about what the name of sister Abigail barrel might be. I don't know if we ever came up with the idea we talked a lot about this you're busy with you today I don't know how the hell you brought it but there are at least twelve different bottles that you brought we're not gonNA sample them all right now but that's cool nine hundred nine and earlier on we referred to the beer that you did with Warren Sapp Who is some type of NFL player some type of primarily all about one sap is a native Floridians or a florida-based brewery he went to Miami University of Miami emme played for the Tampa Bay buccaneers and is a hall of Famer and on the bottle is actually his hall of Fame Bust is the image on the bottle has number was nine losers head noise cost but whilst young chuck is doing he's cake filling you cracked open one aroma now it says on the bottle of Belgian style blonde hair but I immediately get an aroma from of some kind of a you know floor got that right there I'm waiting for my third one which I always liked to do to give you three it's really interesting that you know something like this could be kind of go up in alcohol but they don't really go to anything over ten nothing we have here we I would say that you hit there's some floral notes to it as well it's a rather complex hop bill here and I think it gives a really really nice Arab aromatic compound Sarala markets we don't do a lot of big hoppy beers and this is really our foray into that in dipping our toes in the water and I immediately get an both okay and it was a it's a project that came about because he was a fan of the brewery Kinda got to know us and really wanted to do some fun so on a barrel that sounds like yes yes you know how hard it is to get one name now you're pressing us for tuna doc you Jesse Jackson contract you are paying for that we put this together last year and it was very successful this year we've expanded a little bit and it's been a really really cool beer this is one of the happiest Beers we've ever done it readily available I know you don't distribute but I know the certain services online that will but we let people know and on the back of the label does describe that we did a significant dry hop on this significant whirlpool addition? This is all the late edition cops this label actually had Belgian style hoppy Blonde Ale or Hobby Longdale I think we'd just tweaked it in the lab at the last minute for for this beer for I'm not sure what reason it's got like you said it's got a lot of has gotten a lot of fruity fruiting this to it and just as really really enjoyable no no it's a bit oppy for Belgium long we advertise it as such when we do our facebook and our instagram we tell people what it is and one of the early drafts balance I think this does it. Effectively is a Belgian aol with a nice hot profile and not just one or the other which a lot of times I end up what's happening the hops dominates there's not a lot of bitterness in the spirit all and we do all have all that great flavor and aroma without the dinners lies dry finish what do you reckon Lisa cone now I'm enjoying the drinking but especially but it's different yeah as really cool so some of the beers that we chose to also profile your brain most of my beers are below ten nine and below sixty six to nine is kind of our sweet spot for most of our really traditional Belgian Ales now these bids l. send them via ups or something like that I know I don't think you can do it in Illinois though that you can send it in Illinois so we Florida Law says that we component to it and also you have the Belgian Easter was also added some females some spiciness to it as well and the Malt Tasty Caramel malls in the background I think this is what cannot ship beer anywhere so that right out right so we are only available in the state of Florida and then some of the beers we're gonNA try are not distributed but they are regionally specific so they asked for sixty cases for me and they will only make these available to these regions this month anywhere but our tasting room right there only beers but ninety nine is an exception that's out in some large big box okay places in our in our home market and consider a hobby bear because if you looked on the label you say all built a cell blunder wouldn't think it was all be yeah so people might come along and say the abbey turnover has been out in that and that avenue as well but definitely the ground crew won't that's a very small production batch of beer there are some services Samal Oh yes I remember now missed it by at that much this is kind of a just a regular west coast but then the second one okay you talked about the the the spiciness of the East right east rank coming through not just for our beer but obviously for our beer too but to see all the interesting regional stuff that you can't get that is not hitting those markets that goes out to them 'cause that's what they that's what they specifically do so we sell the beer to them at a distributor and then they send the beer all over the place okay so there are some of our beers that have been distributed in places like New York and maybe Chicago actually still brings him barrel among sister ago in a battle with the monks yeah all right got it so long name but it's worth it all right you've been very very kind to bring some of you Kevin I know that he had left some bottles of beer for some of the breweries that revisit they don't sell any beer in a month they don't any of our beer in our market why would they do that okay well you mentioned all breed and we have a bit from them Did you and I visited when you were growing and one of those was river lands brewing and so I brought it over here to relax brewing and say Charles and I'm sitting in style Bloomingdale so you guys don't do any building styles or have you we've done a Belgian say Saad but so far today the Belgian east of the dominates hops this I think is a good marriage of the two I've had two sips and each one of been different the first one I thought fitting into our previous segment of course it was Warren Sapp's number nineteen nine which is a Belgian style hang on a bit of look at the Ball Belgians you're up there and they seem to want more and my other berea breed were they've sent beard from Aubrey too so that's a cooler outlet I recommend people checking them out soundproof but we we try to stick our ground crew always attend are above or quads about ten point five a lot of our barrel aged beers creep up my imperial stout my Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout all over ten but he's wearing a lumberjack shirt is must be called us right that's what it is is brand Eric you're the head brewer over here and up next so we'll take a short break here and well done nine thousand nine let's the cone of silence thank you a- and I'm that I'd love to be able to guess but I knew it'd be wrong it's a citrus hop either some citrus hop aromas in there there's also some around with all the guys from river lands but most especially in Frienemie the man who isn't wearing a river lands hoodie in different when I took the for sip and then I read the description and saw that it was heavy kettle world pulled with American for instance there's a company called tour and to lure is a company I believe they're based out of Washington state could be wrong on that and they are a basically distribute and then they see how they do and then they blame you put him on this region next month and they try to keep a kind of rare and special could devore's are really interesting outlet for us we've sent two or three different batches we brought Kevin by undisturbed your day and having spent a couple of days with Kevin I know he's very disturbing so we wanted to come by and bring it tennis for anything better in a bottle conditioned beer all right so how about some of the guys you guys like it Dave I thought it was excellent sat right there as well wasn't full at all watch it I think it's a naked food we are back and I'm glad to say that have some beers that get up over there one of the beer we're going to try the ground crew last year Cruz actually fourteen percent highest that was a high atop we've ever done forty percent hands-free so sure it'd be awesome as we always say thanks very much guys and Cheers Nicole that pushing it forward painful new it guys so anyway gives your opinion on this beer which we orange citrus almost a little cantaloupe kinda melanie sorta notes to it a little bit of Pine Resin it's it's really a nice beer but it's it's not couple of the aspects of barrel monks and then we eat to their starter is from all breed wild ale so tell us the only the belgian-inspired done I'd like to do a quad at some point I'm a sucker for Belgium clouds and dark strong sales but we haven't yet we're we're still working on that Was that look three years at Miami that's pretty good Stafford we don't either for three years came out early detaining Allen Trophy finalist also so i Dan off the penalty elbrewery in Pompano Beach Florida so there are there they've actually been brewing there ward at our brewery for since they opened up right so they actually ferment the two bitter which is nice that's kind of maybe where it gets way for being an IP and were blown hoppy Belgian blunt but awesome hop flavor without it being racism anyway apps and it strikes me more of a Belgian Apa in an awesome way I really really enjoy this beer and a lot I get a lot of The flagship beer of odd breed it takes seven months to make that is the fastest turnaround beer they had seven months from from grain to glasses they say batmobile with a so you could say give your opinion now we like honest opinions on this program so if you hate the bloody thing tell us what we thought was the system when we when we went to commercial burry and someone that I've always really wanted to work with someone that always really respected so now we're working together we're making some great beer I don't think it was a mistake I don't think he missed the hand off I think it was a naked boot he comes to Prussian Upfield hard penetrating hard he sees it he reacts quick gets over there and then they finish everything and okay so everything they do sees oak everything they do Caesar House Wild Yeast Culture and their beers cantaloupe and all that other all right so maybe we can expect something like this coming from it's about out breed on your association with them so a few months back is a a sour wild and they're just producing consistently amazing beer they are traditional time they take time this beer here that we're trying it's called past and future already reviewed with the guys at the brewery but what do you think church so I love the label a nice Brown's looking bust of Warren Sapp on I think before we purchased an equal majority share My partner partnership grew from barrel amongst I thought this is one of the best sour breweries in the country I believe and I'm very very proud of the of the association so the with tasting here is past and future tasted because I can't get into CICCETTI NO I can't get passed absolutely delightful aroma because it needs to spend the right amount of time at Oak undergoes a second fermentation it's bottle conditioned and everything they do goes with so much care and it's so amazing Sesana aged in French oak punchy tunes is a punch you in the same as a food ray it's it's it's a size of a barrel he's very good at is very complex and kind of Eric not what I was expecting when I read the label yeah you beat me to and not what I expected the really good I wish I could get all the educated in Germany he's been the head brewer for a long time he was one of my mentors if you will he was a consultant when I my early days at Funky Buddha he was the one that helped us commissioner we have been joined by Chuck Hello Thank you very much so you actually miss the The I well I think you came along and had to say and these offense Balkan condition which showed when he opened it because it certainly phoned up a bit yup good thick sturdy whitehead maybe you can do a collaboration with China Street who just did a collaboration with thorough among yeah then maybe you can do one with him and then you kind of this is like chaining it don't we all so let me let me fill in so I've had one set yeah I got of light carbonation but it was as I look at this this is a typical Lights Color Cezanne Right yeah this is definitely the aroma is award they don't have a brew housing ferment their water are they they brew their what at our place and then they bring it to their place to ferment did truck it over there so they bring over like basically a permit yeah so so now we are going to focus a little bit here on the business that I wanted to have a trio of them that kind of shows offers so many of these beers are very very low production and we're talking about a very small production facility a very small space and doing some amazing beers out of it one of the singly and then it was it was it was just crispy and light to start with the I thought the flavor was going to be more intense I'm GONNA go back for my second set things I think is so good about these beers is the acidity is so well integrated and so well formed and we were talking we were talking about that Dacian about so our our radio holding vessel they bring it over on a trailer they fill up twenty barrels worth of Worth Award they truck it back over the ferment there mazing yeah in the background is like a Ester or some kind of you're getting some fruit characteristics and this is this is they have tons of beers and we're not gonNA take tasted on the podcast but I've got a beer called okay that's perfect anyway why you need four things to make an Ester need some sort of an alcohol or a higher alcohol is which is blackberry amazing blackberry beer that they do and we do I should say and so we do tons of those kinds of beers as well but so much of these beers are one esters so ESTA is a long way esters it's Kinda wasn't vacation aunt esther I four things come together and you get an Ester As far fanatics are are different beast altogether and learn nothing all you need an estimate is enzyme he provided by the east and inactivated fatty acid and something called Co ed they they do come they come from various things from the yeast some use produced finale character as well that's a whole nother different process author of an oak barrel basic okay all right so definitely as the dryness of a Sesana I haven't even okay I haven't gone it's pretty cool so it it's interesting seeing Belgium blimey all in the bottle I was expecting some it gets in on the tax chugging around the field there so for instance I believe the beer today we talked about this and you said it's an estuary strain of melgen yeast that means it's GonNa talk some fruity characteristics actually more it's been sitting in and I I got was that beautiful haute coming in there and then Picchi character to it but it's not as stringent right so it's got like a little hardness to but does not it's not gonNa make you make a funny face Katiba Hispanic free coffee maybe yeah I don't know in their spices like spicy character from the youth mixed so you've tasted it go ahead and describe it Mr I seriously mouth puck secondary hurts you so so let me ask you a question about two words you've been using a lot today in association with the Belgian styles finale there are new partner at the breweries and the Matt Mandy and he's an incredible brewer I say he's the best per technically in the state of Florida he's I ju- craze India Peach okay make could be that's what I am going it's not a full bodied beach yeah but I mean I'm not saying line I think it's a fruit beer I'm just being done they can be not everything is carried to the east but for the most part in Belgian beer when we talk about females Nassar's they're usually thrown off by the east during fermentation and Doc I suppose it's like a great great food what is that way barry of some type some kind of like a light colored berry like fruit like don't know any law you gotTa base goods breath I think it's definitely a light a you normally this time I I can't quite nail with this but it's like a each tylenol forget you can tell the end of the day he's drinking it's a flavor profile that is not desirable signed a beer but females and esters are the two things we talked about most we talk about Belgian strange and in the in the kind of profile they're going to get club times finale Heparin they can be at I think it'd be good to Finan can also be band aid is a flavor that he describes as females so sometimes it's uh-huh the beer that we tasted earlier off Mike than the number ninety nine was through we might oh we oh we did it's got the dryness you need of course but also fruit character net a big like but there's like a fruity nature to it along with all the spices and stuff okay they're they're different chemical standpoint they're different different different molecules they are characteristics of the yeasts. Okay all right so you actually you drink I'll talk that it goes this is really good and I'll just sit back here on street right so I think that I I mean but yeah it's not real tired no it's interestingly on the tongue got an extrinsic I'm sue compensation offered so that's all right now I'm ninety nine phonology beer so that's a spicy yeast right spice Eric running for like a straight up Cezanne it's got that know people say it tastes like Scott character by scholars something more to pretty quick manner and there's just a different animal when you start talking about long-term barrel aged showers and you start talking about this this process of acidification this eastern I think has a little bit of spiciness to it we talked a little bit earlier about our kettle sours right and it's a way to get a nice our beer and outpoint please This one is actually similar to or at least you tell me this similar to the one that you brew today in collaboration with Joe Street a Belgian right amount of time for the right beer and that's what they're trying to accomplish so I think this is seven months worth of waiting because this is really tremendous instead of like the but so that's a nice thing so I say this is a really nice beer thumbs up again you know a beer that hi beer beer number two in your barrel amongst trio that we have here is one that is actually yours now this is a barrel amongst one yes and awed breed which is what I'm so proud of that they take the time that we don't take at barracks do kettle sours right we also do all the I do know that on your regular barrel amongst beers you just have a cap but it's got a kind of a plastic seal on this not as rap break if I want to make sure that everybody knows that coming up tomorrow although this is going to go out before tomorrow but you've done an anniversary oh right chuck for you little bit okay all hell is breaking loose cure anarchy yeah all right I say cheers to ought a Averis instance I understand why they put it on there but holy cow does it take a hell of a lot to get the bloody thing off especially if it's a plastic one traditional thing if you can't use a cap with the cork okay so I think it's really to replicate that and to show that that's the kind of thing that they're trying to accomplish and not speech right there's no tax involved no I I didn't know where you're going I but now I'm back on track but you know that that has been the Sour Beers at maybe our little little ramped up a little faster than they could be they could be a little bit better if he gave more time at Aubrey they take the exact double and it is a about seven percent we Isabel Jim Brown or Belgian and Braille Multi Chewy but not your seventh anniversary a log not just a logger but a Mexican leg and it just on Komo consol consob okay and that means what with respect with respect and with respect I haven't tasted it yet so I can't Tyson I had it last week breed e says sounds like Aubrey I have a Michigan Accent De dos hold against right next year please uh-huh I will be there representing church where we are currently recording and very proud to do so and before we go and we've we've kind of gone over the ten minute mark so there is a Latin phrase which is Ab Eternal Oh to eternity okay got it at Abbey all amongst is associated with the not gonna put your own and I are they going to be at JBC F I don't know if I'd breeds going to J. B. If I don't I'm looking at the list right now sweet not over the top not really heavy if you've ever had a Shamir read that's a Belgian double I have prior eight from St Bernardus that's the Belgian doubles so this is in that vein really proud of this beer this is one of those beers I think doesn't get enough without as a style in general and interestingly you they have a coke and they have a regular bottle cap on it said if you're used coded a Corcoran cage I thought it was and do both yeah say do not double was again doable double either one I I am a a brewer I think so yes so neither of these guys are going to be gbs she's really disappointing heard you're going and then we're like we're not going all the former borough really but a brewer at an owner of a Belgian style very I say and I get chastised time but it's fine this is a Belgian being so with abby turnout and the label has a monk holding this loss of beer with two stained glass windows in the background cool can carry that this is a changeable I call a corporate K. Okay ours but that's worth a champagne bottle oh okay we do this this is actually sniffed it this this is apparently I like it when you sniff it this apparently is going to be very similar to the one you have around I think that's pretty bamber every no yeah has a nice a light brown head to it yeah I've got a definite no no I glance to me it looks like a dart board okay but then as I look at it again I see it has a nice Belgian sniff the glass you know is it good a name that Gloss Santa something I think he said he's not super high but you get Do you do get some some spices on the nose and a little bit mm-hmm oh boy that's that's almost like a you talk about it being an amber right a Belgian ambu that's that's what the smell's coming off the pretty much the same color as the you made today which is a I'd say not really Mahogany Alight Mall kind of walking downstairs and grabbing a pint it's this one because I think it has just the right amount of complexity it's dry enough to be drinkable it's flavorful to enough to be complex in fact I was GonNa say and and the label as I look at this is called Abbey Teno mb Turner Tabby. I'm trying to figure out what that is a plan this style the triple is the champagne and Belgian beer the quad has all this love affair behind him the double goes on way I wandered into a great craft beer bar and had a nostradamus just kind of out of nowhere and was like oh I didn't know that after this is the John Snifters for all of our beers we think it's the best beer class for our styles okay cool so this one pulls out the crucial Belgian Trappist sales and also kind of got burnt out because I felt like they all tasted the same but then I realized it wasn't talk a little bit of spiciness alcohol alcohol and this is again I think it was about seven but then I kinda got distracted and I drink a bunch of porter's and stoute's an Ip as and I love half of Aisin's and I love Belgian wits and I kind of forgot about the Belgian an interesting on every sip and consistently when I taste this beer with non beer drinkers they tend to really really love it and I think it's such a shame that they all taste the same as that a lot of breweries especially American breweries under attenuate their Belgian so there too sweet they all use exact same e-strain route today and if this comes out half as good as the one you brew today then you've got a winner on your hands so tell us a little bit about what you're getting from his band S. I guess a little bit of Baker's chocolate those are all kind of the year noticed that I that I pick out that comes from that that Belgium Gandhi spices I but I do get spices on the nose as well as a little bit of like Um all character in the background and it's actually interesting to listen to you guys talking about this you get because Kevin said we get a little bit of like Moses Dusky Cherry Hill fusty cherry just because it's not like a tired or a Cherry I get a little bit taste like this right and then I had a Saxon delirium tremors and Chamois and Saint Bernardus and Belgians where my I love when it came to craft is magical it's great with food is interesting it's complex it's a whole world Belgian imperial stout throughout their Belgian ambrose out there with Belgium so that's a weird story I'll try to be a succinct as possible so I found craft beer through Belgian beer and a lot a larger Saint Bernard is Christmas try my beer and I went wow Belgian beer that's dry and complex and they're using the right eastern for the right beer he said data so what can I do phone so I I assume yes all right good how did you first get into a love Affair Gummi on Belgian beer on a regular basis Kevin come over I've got a bunch of bottles a Westie twelve stored away in my house covering this Oh try this three year old of that aspect of it so I believe when we have audrey wiles they only do what they do right we only do what we do and I really liked that aspect of it and that was that was really fun Lisin North Western Europe the land shaped by culture and tradition where beer serves as the very lifeblood of the people flowing into every aspect their beers so I kind of got burnt out Belgium's I wasn't that interested in them until my now partners than friends would off one of your ultimate beers so named the grand grew or is it grommed grew grown crew on crew the Mecca for beer lovers Belgium we all back for our final bit of this segment and we have that we used in our today we use the same Candy sugar here and this is this is a year that I always go back to when people of life refreshing robots but wine is to the south beer is to the north nowhere is this more evident than here that makes me sound a little more pretentious and I like that there is other restaurants that do a nice tie dish but if I want I want to go to Thai restaurant food was that is in high yeah that's my game right there but I focused so we usually do on bought cast thumbs up or thumbs down we have not done that or any of these beers because because here hardy thumbs on great soft the final be that we're going to be tasting from you I think is kind of that's why they all taste like banana and bubble gum because they're using the same eastern that taste like banana and bubblegum they're not bearing up there from temperatures they're they're getting the same fermentation profile tails it's not one thing and that's when they convinced me to go over to the dark side and on board with barrel the monks and do that the Belgians and I just always loved going over to that group you know I've never made the commitment to to we'll say like what's your favorite thing that you broke the favorite thing I always my single because the lightest simplicity and I'm most proud of it but if you go back to the beer that I drink the most in the tasting room when I'm on the bottle here as an imperial radio just kind of interesting and it's ten percent alcohol by volume and is this your ultimate beer because it's called your Grand Cru you make a different one every year and the stand this one I'm reading on the picture George Clinton on what he does this all the time he sticks his nose himself and then he comes up with saying yeah I can't you know pick out exactly something and do it really really well and I like specialization I always say the best place to go get Thai food is a great Thai restaurant there's plenty as I sniff it I definitely get a stronger version of the Dougal Sam saying doable now it well I've just been reaffirmed now how wonderful Belgian beers to be basically had a wonderful lesson in Belgium beers chuck have you have you learned anything from this 'cause you're real small toss anyway so smart would actually Lisa pose this while you off making a culture your little son just twenty month old son is he good he they're doing great is he missing dad there's a little bit of mock character down a little bit of his sort of like you know sorta Belgian funk Spices Mel do not really fun but it's so one of the things that we set out the crew series is heart of brewing is all brewing is cleaning okay and then the rest of US under the radar and I think it's really a shame that US against the left behind now paused Dabo GonNa make up for it so a question for you appear again that's kind of our goal with the group is always at least ten percent alcohol we can do a lot of different styles the other rule with this is no address so we're talking it's an I really came down to one thing for me I brought a lot of beer in my life I'm very proud of everything I've done before barrel amongst but barrel among scaping opportunity to do this do one I don't want what are the reason why we're we're sitting here today I'm very impressed by the bills you guys have made because I believe they cut they cover all those bases that I see are not be on it and I was so happy to port for people and go yeah this is very

He leaned on mom and dad a lot because he had problems socially he also wasn't the best when it came to his emotions and how to deal with any type of stress. That's not really out of the norm for a lot of kids growing up trying to find their way and how to deal with things in a healthy manner. There were no signs that could have what he would become after high school. John started working at state bank. Then he eventually went to work and another bank call commonwealth.

When john was a child he was still very needy. When it came to his parents he relied on them way too much. He was lacking psychological. Means to deal with the things that stressed him out and life marriage the arrival of a child and the change of jobs from a working bank officer to being self employed in his conveyancing business. The sharp family left the house. They were living in and moved to another house on one. Sixteen prints st. John went to shop around at the local store called sport philip marine. He was looking around and spear guns even though he never even used one in his life he did by a high powered one and an extra spear with cash he go into their backyard and he would practice firing the spear guns so he could get used to it and learn how to operate it. It was basically like a little hobby for him. Nobody knows when he bought the spear gun however is known that it was in his possession and february of two thousand and three and september of two thousand three anna gleefully. Told john that she found out she was pregnant again. Gracie was a little over a year old now and this really shaw john. Because allegedly he had a conversation with anna telling her that he didn't want any more children he felt. They had their hands full with just gracie. He wasn't ready for another baby unfortunately after. Nfl was good news announcing her pregnancy to john he started to harbor bitter angry feelings towards not only her but the life growing in the womb on the nineteenth of march two thousand. Four one of anna's girlfriends came over to hang out and ended up spending the night in their new house. This friend said nothing seemed weird or out of sorts between anna and john besides some of the stress that they had experienced when baby gracie was battling her condition. Everything seemed a lot better now. Well on the twenty first of march. John anna and gracie went to a birthday party for one of their nephews. People at the birthday party said everything seemed fine. Between anna and john there were no signs of stress bitterness and they didn't argue at all. Nothing seemed wrong. Two days later on the twenty third however and john dig into a verbal fight before they went to bed. This is where things get really ugly really fast. Lock your doors. Check under the bed and turn on a night light. Because it's tom for the scariest stories. History and conversations ever heard if you struggle to find a great scary podcast. Listen to scary tom. But andy dropping and explore a new creator every week. They'll be telling you about. Paranormal goes monsters. Huntings creepy places enchanted objects aliens and more best of all. If you like the creator you can follow them for more great content if you dare. That's scary time by indie dropping. Wherever you strained your podcasts. So john ways there awhile thinking about the month that he had actually fantasized about killing anna. He gets out of bed goes to the garage thus in the backyard and he grabs his spear gun. He's sneakily going back into the house. And while anna five months pregnant with their son francis was still sleeping peacefully. John only wearing underwear and a shirt knelt down beside her. He fires the spear only a few centimeters and it goes into her left temple. Anna was still breathing which doesn't go unrecognized by john. He shot a second sphere into his pregnant wife's head which instantly killed her john through a few towels over her body which is not uncommon when people murder others but can't look at what they've done and face it. John went downstairs and was somehow able to rest his head comfortably after what he just done and fell asleep on the sofa bed john recalls quote anna was asleep in bed and i used us spear and fired. It fired it into anna's head on two occasions that's how she died. In quote the following morning he takes gracie to her child care facility and when it was time for her to get out of childcare he goes back to pick her up and they get settled in at home all of a sudden. There's a knock on the door. The tv repairman is there and john had to make up some live to get the man out of the house. Because anna's dead body was steel just right upstairs after the repairman leaves. John goes upstairs. And he's trying to remove the spears from anna's head until he finally realized he couldn't so he unscrews the rods from the head of the spears. He then dug a shallow grave in their backyard and buried her body at some point. After anna died he went back to the same sport store with gracie and toe and he buys another speier for the gun on the twenty seventh of march. Two thousand four. Only a few days after anna's murder he puts gracie to bed. He then numbs himself by slamming. Glass after glass of whiskey and coke or similar liquid courage. He drunkenly walks out to the garage to yet again. Get his spear gun. And he loads it with the new spear that he had just bought not long ago. He goes back inside into gracie's bedroom and fired the spear into her head. It pierced her skull as you can imagine. She's in pain. She screaming at the top of her little lungs. John goes into the bedroom. He grabs the shafts that he had gotten out of. Anna's head he. Fires two of them and to gracie's head but she doesn't die. He removed one of the spears and fired yet again. This fourth and final sphere killed little gracie. Reportedly john even put a towel over his face while he was removing the spears from her head because again he couldn't face what he had done for days. He knew he was going to do this completely premeditated. He admitted that he knew right. After he killed anna that he had to kill twenty month year old gracie as well. The next morning he goes into gracie's room and removes the spears from her head. He wraps her up in garbage bags and a tarp all of that in duct tape and puts her in the vehicle to rid her body at a mornington transfer station after he did that. He got rid of the spear gun. Spears some of gracie's toys and clothes on the twenty ninth of march. John goes to buntings warehouse. Which is a local hardware store located in ston there. He purchased a roll of duct tape to tarps and an electric chainsaw. On the thirtieth he dug up anna and dismembered her body into three parts with that chainsaw. He wrapped her dismembered corpse into a tar and took her remains to the waste collection bins at the morning. Ten transfer station to get rid of her and the chainsaw. He also got rid of the blood-soaked mattresses and any evidence that had blood on it but he wasn't hurting for a mattress because he had actually bought a brand new one two weeks before he killed anna that day. He decided to write an email to anna's family from her email account. Because they've been trying to get in touch with anna. Her family was still living in new zealand at the time and was worried about her because obviously they haven't heard from her in a long while he wrote them as anna to say that she was pregnant by another man and had run away with him to get away from all distress that she was going through with john. This only made anna's family feel even more uneasy. They reported her missing to the dondon new zealand. Police john emailed and his family to tell them from his own account that she was fine and he expected her on sunday to come pick gracie up now. John told the police that an anti gracie and had moved to chelsea which is a melbourne suburb. Close fa- on top of all of allies. He went on to send flowers to anna's mother on tuesday and the flowers were an anna's name as if they were sent by her and may of two thousand four. John was now doing interviews with many media outlets he was on television. Talking about anna and gracie's disappearances he even said quote anna. Our marriage may be over. But i still love you. And you are the mother of our beautiful daughter gracie whom we both adore more than anyone else. in quote. john continued to keep the laws going saying he had talked to anna a week prior and if anyone knew her she was or had any information at all to please come forward. John was now telling everyone that his pregnant wife took their daughter and ran off with some other man. On the twentieth of may two thousand four new zealand called for victoria police to start investigating the disappearance of anna and gracie that same day police from washington went to the home that the family used to share together and they question john. His story never changed on the tenth of june. He was questioned again by the mornington police but he stuck to his story firmly about anna leaving on her own march twenty third he even wrote a deposition to the police which promised he had nothing to do with their disappearances reports. Say after hidden surveillance footage captured john. Getting rid of convicting evidence and our trash ban at mount martha as well as him recovering credit card that was concealed in a plastic bag behind a toilet block in mornington. John was finally detained for murder on the twenty second of june. Two thousand four. The police came to his parents home where he was basically hiding out ever. Since the investigation became public he was interrogated at the homicide squad on st kilda road. He was interviewed twice in the first interview. John kept sticking to his story denying having anything to do with their disappearances however after that interview he talked to his family for a bit and during the second interview he confessed to killing them. Both john said that he was in an unhappy and miserable marriage saying anna was super controlling had mood swings and kept him away from seeing his family on many occasions when these claims came up in court the prosecutor said quote whether such claims have truth or not now manners not at all and cannot deny them they provide neither justification nor excuse for anything that you have done but what about killing gracie. Well he says that. That was out of a rational bloody madness. He said quote. I was sort of in and out of my head all wheat. I could hear things going through my head. The voices saying you can't do it. Worse is saying you can do it. You've got to do it. Every option was coming up in quote he also said quote hours thinking about taking care of gracie by myself and just amongst all this madness. That's when i lost the plot. When you're sort of insane your minds all over the place. I had the idea that if i had a few drinks a might. Just be crazy enough to go and do it. It's shocking. it's all shocking. I know that it didn't kill gracie because she started screaming. I thought i was insane in quote while john was talking to police about the murders. He said quote. You know what you're doing is sort of in saying that. There's just as weird part of you. That's almost unstoppable or something. You're almost like on automatic pilot sort of thing. I can't really remember much of what i thought of of anything just department this sort of crazy sensation. It was totally emotional. It's crazy it's a madness but you sort of felt like there's something inside of you that's just saying do it and i mean you know it's wrong it's almost. It's almost feeling like you can't stop yourself in quote. When speaking about the dismemberment of anna. John said quote. You know it's ludicrous. It's like you're in another world in quote. He also said that it was like a nightmare while he was mutilating her forensic psychiatrists lester walton said. John was battling depression but was definitely not psychotic. Lester walton stated quote. This is a fairly mad at but there's no evidence of psychosis it seems to me. He raised his state of desperation where he concluded this was his only option. He then went about it in a fairly methodical way in quote also. John's family finally comes out and say that john had been a child molester. And it's possible. That anna walked in on john molesting gracie which is why he killed her. John has a history. Anna never knew about john's family never told anna that he was a pedophile. Twenty years before he murdered anna and gracie e- add committed sex crimes on young members of his family and friends. One of his victims was a female. He sexually abused for two years. He stopped doing that to her when he was eighteen. According to some of his family the victim is haunted by everything that he did to her. She also puts blame on herself saying that if she would have reported him a long time ago maybe he wouldn't have murdered anna and gracie. It's only speculation that this was brought to the interrogation and was a part of getting him to confess but some believe it was only all the evidence that was brought to the table as well that got him to admit over the course of a few weeks. In june angela there was a widespread search of a landfill site on the mornington peninsula. This is where the mornington transfer station dumps waste and the whole site was investigated thoroughly by many police officers. And other searchers the remains of anna and gracie were discovered and lighter a pathology examination at the victorian institute of forensic medicine took place and did validate john's confession as to how his pregnant wife and twenty month old daughter died as well as how he disposed of their bodies so at the transcript of the melbourne criminal division. The queen versus john mal sharp. And this is what it says. Quote with the respect of the murder of your wife. And i can't the are significant matters aggravation first. There's the question of premeditation whether you formed an intention to kill her. Romy bought the spear gun or when you it and your backyard sometime before the twenty third of march as the crown submitted you had certainly formed that intention when you went to your garage on the evening of that day retrieved it loaded it and returned to your bedroom your killing. Your wife was no impulsive. Act of desperation. Secondly there was the method of carrying out this crime. It was singular in its barbarity. Thirdly there was the fact that your wife was pregnant your act effectively destroyed two lives not one. Fourthly there was the desecration of your wife's body and the manner of its disposal as already described. Fifthly there was an extensive charade in which you engaged to try to conceal your involvement in this crime. Sixthly there is the effect that anna's death and the method of its occurrence has had on those closest to her. Finally there was some enormous cost to the state of the investigation of the circumstances of anna's disappearance and the ultimate for her remains against these aggravating factors. You are entitled to have taken into account your previous good character including your lack of prior convictions. And your alternate confession to this crime including your plea of guilty which obviated the necessity for a perhaps lengthy trial which would have significantly increased the anguish of anna's family and those others affected by her death. Remorse is an elusive concept. A confession a plea of guilty will not always denote its existence. They may be as consistent with the existence of a strong crown. Case as with repentance. In your case though your actions during and after the commission of these crimes would tend to suggest a lack of any concern for what you had done at least until the twenty second of june of last year. Mr joplin's assessment that you were well aware of the gravity of your actions. Indicate the commencement of contrition process. No doubt in the coming years of the gravity of your actions will weigh more heavily on you. You may reach a state of genuine remorse. It is to be hoped that you do a positive finding that you have done so yet however cannot be made. Finally your time in prison especially in the early years of your sentence is likely to be marked by hostility and even violence from fellow prisoners. Which in turn is likely to lead to. You're having to be isolated. Thereby making the ordeal of incarceration particularly onerous with respect to the murder of gracie all the aggravating and mitigating factors referred to are equally applicable. Except of course the fact of your wife's pregnancy. However there are further significant. Aggravating factors and gracie's case which are not present in the case of your wife gracie was a defenseless child or whom you had a legal and more importantly a moral responsibility. And whatever your motive. For killing an mine of ben and gracie's case it was simply said that your purse crime would not be discovered having regard to these additional factors. It would have been logically. Possible to impose different sentences for each of these offenses however distinctions at this level of heinousness and by unseemly. Comparisons which are and the circumstances unnecessary. It is the sentence of the court that on the count of having murdered anna marie camp. You be imprisoned. For the term of your natural life and on the count of having murdered gracie louise sharp you imprisoned for the term of your natural life. It is further ordered that you serve minimum of thirty three years in prison before being eligible for parole in quote as far as prison life for john. From what i've read and to no one surprised hasn't gone to well. He is in protective custody. Spending most of his time and ice elation because other inmates want to harm him and gracie were laid to rest in green park cemetery doomed in new zealand. Their names on the tombstone assay anna and gracie cam not sharp gracie's birth and death certificate. Have both been modified to list the father as unknown. Thank you so much for listening to today's tragic story of the sharpe family. Murders before i get out of here. I want to thank my patrons on patriot dot com slash reverie true crime for their support so a huge shoutout to brandy ian lorraine maggie chelsea. Liz shana trevor.

"They'd be lucky enough to have a go on machine and jack actually got the jackpot counter out. And i'll never forget it. Because he went to bed that not you must have been about five or six but he went to bed that night and he said so that was that such good great and he said and then he just went and got the contract. Said yeah yeah. How much money do i Hello and welcome to this episode of my dad pot. My name is dave berry and a couple of years ago. I became a father for the first time as a brand new data. Wanted to create a place for people to common celebrate paranoid so my part was born. I've been gathering invaluable advice from some very special guests ever since now both my daughter av and the that part both a little bit older. I am still hoping to get a little bit wiser. And so this time out. I'm joined by tv presenter journalist quizmaster and fathers two sons jack and sam. It's ben shepard. Hallo ben how good to see great having you on the dad pont may of a pleasure to be listened to many of your podcast in the past and thoroughly enjoyed the vice thoughts that have been shared by the various stats and some mums as well. Of course of calling that well. That's very sweet supplies for parents to come under. Well the first thing you know. There's there's much for us to talk about but basically evangeline is going to be coming up for. Two years of age of the boys are teenagers. What are your memories of those toddler years. Well okay so from a dad's perspective. I think certain things to happen when the baby comes along there is such a strong bond between the mom and the baby if they're breastfeeding and all those things literally as a dad. And as anne's husband i was just a vessel four t cleaning food anything that she needed to help the baby so stay alive which was traumatic in itself you know come amendment going to work and go to work very early in the morning eating and just go in another look at san. When he was born in. I'd have to his chest. Go up and down three times before i could leave the house but couldn't wake him up as well obviously that absolutely gripping fear that you're going to do something wrong that's going to cause some sort of but those first few months a rule would about just trying to keep your head above water and make sure any head what she needed to be able to sort of be the brains in that and the engine room behind this parenting monarchy and then then they start smiling and then they start sitting up and then they stop cooling but undoubtedly i still think around eighteen months getting on where eventually and is now around two years i think from a data perspective and this is my experience things get exponentially better frie- a guy because because suddenly you'll getting direct feedback the chatting loads that moving around more that quite happy to be away from a bit more with you. You can have your own shared moment with them as well. So the bond between me and the boys from i'd say eighteen months two years on has just exponentially has got stronger and better from that moment. And i think back to that time and i kind of look at the now at my boy is now and that will cubes and hormones and smells now. Think back at that. And i think when it was so simple and it was just literally about lego or pepper pig and biscuit and and sometimes i think i would go back in a heartbeat but then then i just think about how consuming is at that stage. They starting to get a little bit more independent but they still need. You grabs the everything. And that's relentless that is a relentless experience in feeling that sometimes when the ill or sleeping you never feel like you're gonna get tossed it but the good news is you get through it. Somehow you get through it as a team will whatever it is and when you come out the other side and you take stock take moments. It's been an extraordinary adventure that we're on and we sort of still only really just starting with them but i look those years toddlers as two euros and three very very fondly. But i'm i'm still very glad that behind me day from honest fairplay. I must admit now. All jokes aside and a celebrity say that eighties con of over the twenty month mark. Now i am just the happiest. I think i've ever be mine. Wife and we have a really special little bond. Than when i come back from work having grafted for four hours each and every day in the morning and i come home. They're welcoming hero. Haagen i it just absolutely brings together. I i love it so much and it's just umbrella business. There's nothing behind it at two years. Old or twenty months two years old is just the unbridled joy of seeing you having seen you. It's really exciting. It's not because she wants something go because she's you know something's happening justice that delights and that magic is something that you you know what happened at work it just that when you see that smile laikipia cuddle and you get that you know that first period of just catching up on the day i. We won't be doing and that just the chat. Both my boys real chatterboxes kids just inane chat endless. What of it made sense. But you love me to be around here that now you can barely get word out. The may come from one end of the spectrum. Another thing you said a which is interesting. Which i think is that circle of life so perfectly is now on my phone if i sit down and watch an episode of pepper pig and have a biscuit. I'm happy as i would have been able to sing. That's that's life-affirming stuff. One of the things. I was interested in talk about being kind of whole moans and slightly monosylabic and i know. Obviously you're half joking about the boys but but finding those shed interest. Because i know you guys play golf together a marine saying that. Yeah and then. And when did they start materialize. Nice thing to do not give me some time on her own you can take the boys away and she can have a bit of her time which is vital not thinking any marriage is absolutely crucial and it's transformed quite dramatically as they got older because i can vividly remember. Jack didn't sleep. Sign was really good sleeper. He didn't sleep through about twelve fourteen weeks something like that but once he was in he was fine. Jack did not sleep for about eighteen months. Two years was absolutely brutal. I'd go. I'd go to work at s- sort of three thirty in the morning and he would cool we about six o'clock jacks just fallen asleep and then twenty minutes later sam would wake up and not come home and if santa claus nursery any would be asleep on the floor next to jack's cops 'cause she was just so we had this really intense period when jack was little because he just wouldn't say turned out we bench in the middle of the night. Let you do. I went on a mum's net for more a form of some sort. And i said has anybody got any ideas and someone suggested that he might be lactose intolerant and we changed his milk. We change the formula and was overnight. He slept because he wasn't keeping his milk down and he had really bad briefs and literally overnight and it was like magic switch being turned by. I remember one particular morning saint money because you say so important. She can never time gathering. She wasn't getting any sleep. So one saturday i said. Look i'll take the voice tomorrow morning. You have a lion. You have a good rest. And i'll look after the boys you'll have really nice sleep. Inevitably gripe saturday morning. I wake up sam's waking up. He's in the room next to me. We go jack up. We take jackie to sam's room. Next benjamin time. And siamese only twenty months old jacksonville. Jax probably about eight weeks. Something like that sam's not much older than twenty probably that leaves h now and he's putting around his room we love them and sam or whatever what's going on i'm changing jackson and i checked nappy and as often as would happen as i'm sure you experience parents experience as i pull these nappies. He has a week. It's just that spontaneous combustion. That happens when i'm sure you've experienced when you free to air suddenly there's like a releases a has so that's fine because i saw managed to close. They're put the nappy back on. Just in time. Yeah yeah then as. I put it down again. He didn't have a week he. He thought the plo economic He did a projectile as would often have so. There was this moment where i'm so bad at the. I mean the room next door. Jackson sam's beds and the posters coming. And it's got all over me and it's like he's had a curry. I mean honestly only had no time. He's throwing all over me so starts with the bed and then of course so i'm trying to control And then sam of course interested to you wrote comes patriots. Say daddy. what's going on. And they pulled his hands. Jack's kicking his legs around. And i've put my manager to how i've got one hand on someone you say. They're holding tax legs down and manage. Take everyone's closer. I've got naked objects naked to everywhere and anne and the door opens in any said what is going on i. This was my big moments. Give light honestly. There's all completely naked walking. I'm like that was my. That was my asset. When they were little dry and take something off been lovely thing and you say so you know we have shared interests now with spoke with gulf which is loving as they got a bit older and letting toilet train being able to take them to do stuff to sports two matches playing football. If they're playing rugby and now for the three to play. Go flat me is one of the most fantastic parts of my thing. I enjoy most. I was thinking about this. Actually because i knew we're gonna chat and and what is it. The i get from the boys. I will never be able to explain to them and i love my sports night. Playing sport watching sport being consumed spoke presenting school. I will never enjoy moments of my own like oil. If i'm with them or if i'm watching them watching them play sport do some big issue is just extraordinarily fulfilling compare and i love doing it myself. There's something i get from. Which is just watching them flourish and grow and learn a new skill enough. Having shared moment together a great show go from really bad. Shaw good love then. Beating mayo may beating them beating me mostly now which is coming to my eldest. Sam you gotta be careful what you wish score as well because the boys tiny seimas berry big when he was bowled and the boys were small. Get it bigger so we can have a fi wrestling. We can play football properly. Overplay get siamese fifteen and he's six foot two davies cosi fate. He's a house. The weikun we went through we went for a run the other day and he got into running in lockdown so it was his one hundred run because he's going to struggle with these nights and usually i'm i'm relatively fit as you know. Know we were running around the park but houses a hill so becomes this last thinking blowing it here. I'm not sure i'm going to stay within anyway. As we guide halfway up the hill on guy he guy salmon daily. They're nearly there. He slapped my arms. Keep up key popo man. I know anytime. There's this horrendous conflict of mixture of pride he's got so fed an absolute seething anger yet he had your tests lap me on the way pass and then pick me as well. You should get one of those really battles and that's the way you can do so when you just like you're running those moments that we shared our. I couldn't have understood that growing up. You know i'm. I'm very close with my dad. We struggled a bit through my teenage years. Because i was just reading and didn't didn't understand what he was trying to get it so much better now on a father but we didn't have that shed moment like this. No one could have told me how special that was going to be. And the other thing is i mean i love my and go takes a long time. I take the boys vanished. Hansa four hours rather than being really selfish. I'm being very self less. So i mean you've got them into something that you were going to be doing anyway. Say it's like a completed plan. It's like genius bar. I watched the now. And i enjoy that with. You soon. speculative and i'm sure you do you think about what the two of you are going to be doing when she's older and what you can watch when you watch a playoff game of whatever it might be and actually watching it thinking about actually doing tweet very different things and and it's really visceral. It really is the good bits and bad bits. You live every moment with. I could never understood how much joy i would get from watching them partaking any activity. And that's something that. I still absolutely thrive on one of the things that means might strike. Jack's changed schools this year. And he's got into the football team. And i love going to watch some play football. I just love it but because of coca this you call walked parents out to watch and that you know that i find that frustrating that there are these moments in these benchmarks in their life that unfortunately we are all being forced to have to compromise on. Because because of what we're going through. I know that we'll get plenty more on our now but those low milestones or so so special and loved. Everyone know that you're into your sport and it seems that the boys are as well which is fantastic and a big part of your healthy way of living for the last twenty years of senior in. I mean i have my research tells me fourteen marathons is that right or am i doing u. a. l. Now i think it might be more than that now but yeah yeah kind of. You've got multiple caps for the england soccer team. You've climbed kilimanjaro. For comic relief. And you did all these things. Four charitable cause. Is that something that you'll bring to the table with jack and sam. Is it nice for them to be turning their a size twelve feet in the direction of raising money for people less fortunate than maybe are at the moment. I'm the charity case at home day. They can raise some money for me by calling the hail as a ten hour. The amount of time. I've put into them on the foundation. The ben shepard Yes i think so. I think it's interesting because whereas sign has really go into seimas. Never particularly good february loved it but it wasn't taken it so he's going to running in sort of gopher and solo sports. They can do with his mates. Jack was always really into team sports and the team thing is really dropped off because of covid. So we've got the one son is just thriving and his embrace there and it was so sam's a bit bigger Much more body aware when he is taking pride in his appearance. The fats getting thirteen sofa is struggle at the moment. Jot minis never happy with me. The bag of crisps. And and you. And i and i know i know that that will turn around because you know it's quite it's quite an intense period at the moment but finding the the way that them to be fit and healthy and enjoy the lifestyle that they have enjoy going on but equally. We've got some chow two things to do that. They are very aware of the. I know that they're really keen to be involved with. And that's you know it's a real motivator thrust. We're very lucky diving. The job that we do comes with some fun and if you can lend your profile supports a caused that you'll close to or you have an affinity to you know that's a that's a real privilege and i think that they both understand how lucky i have been with all of those things and it's nice that you'll be able to as you say your lending your time to causes. That means something you for. A reason for your sounds to be embracing now. I think he's really heartwarming. Actually as part of your job. Obviously you know you're still will of salvation. Your national treasurer loved bio the wallet. Gas you i was true. The one they get you up the earliest is of course. Good morning britain and there's an old adage and this isn't. I'm not saying this. Because i agree with this but some people said are why. Would you wanna bring a child into this world. And your job major at the forefront of you know telling us all about radical politics and pandemics and climate change. Is it difficult to come off. Set to wrap after a particularly difficult role cost of a show and then go home and face the family. Do you carry that with you. I think there is a sadly at the moment. There is a lot of frustration and despair and bad news and continuing toolman for for all of us and we do worry that damage that we are doing to young people. Michael daughters at university. And of course it's been no no time to bit university in locked up in jose residents and for the boys as well thinking about what does the feature that like in house. It's gonna pan out for them. But i think the thing that gets you through those tricky a days when you're dealing with really tough stories or tough subject matter as coming home and seeing them and seeing the optimism and the hope and the need to keep striving for things to improve for them to sort of find a base whereby they can build on their life in a creative and constructive way will make a difference. Hopefully occasionally it's been. It's been really tough for family. Reasons for personal reasons. Going through kobe's one of my berry colleagues as kate has been very seriously affected family and billion dollars year similar ages osama jack make. Good friends are won't you will thank you dave. Yeah as she will tell you if you see her the support in the outpouring of love and ungenerous steve spirit for the british public being critical. You know so. Those are things that are hard to leave behind. I think that's when you see how she's approached it. When you see the positivity which we she's taking it i'm gonna see the boys and how they attack. Eli and then get in the way of going through. It makes me very proud of ood. redoubled efforts. To make sure that you know we can keep the stories current intangible the hopefully we can present it in a way that can make some change and understand the reality for me and for any the most important thing and i vote. I think i've always felt this. Is that my boys can wake up every day with a smile on the face and feel safe and secure and positive in confidence and we are trying to navigate as any parent. Is you just trying to navigate all the things thrown in your poff. That sort of the stabilize that and they will be days that good days that bad but you know we are very lucky in the majority of days are pretty positive and they are pretty resilient as well. I think that's something else that i've come to understand is that kids are much stronger than we sometimes. Give him credit So i'm very proud of mandates. Actually in how they go about it and the abundant in this school has been brilliant. We've been very lucky. School is reacted really quickly. I'm very well the other thing. That's interesting as well. Because they know what i'm doing and they will go through phases of being very engaged. What i'm and then not relate remotely interested in in one doing but san fifteen is getting much more engaged with current affairs politics and the news. Because that's what happens at the asian. They're talking about law school so he's engaged with and that might find really exciting because it's kind of a way of sharing what's happening in the news. And handling what his opinions on these things and you see these young minds being formed and shaped and sort of just hopefully allowing him and his brother to sort of stay open minded about what's going on and not be brought down by the negativity in the pessimism. Some heat that optimism that that sense of hope. And that's something. I'd like to think that have done our best. And it's not always easy crikey. It's not always easy when they've done something really bad or things really going wrong not at any sleep or whatever. It is the trying to stay optimistic positive about things. I think he's a can kind of be my default position as well for a long time and i hold onto that. I think If you are as parents if you're able to kind of create that culture your children. I feel secure and they failing formed. Then you kinda taking off the really the number one box. Which is you're creating good people good adults and good people for society and therefore maybe the news in their hands will be a little less bleak from time to time because bad decisions and taking care of one another more than certain generations have thousand and people in the past baps. I think the other thing is that i was thinking about this. The boys i think being interesting is a good thing. I think being interested is a much more important thing so it's not just about having things decided it's about being interested to find out what other people have got to say. What is the reason behind these words. The reason behind it. I think it's while my job so much. A much more interested in other people amazon. A much more interested in someone telling a story me helping to tell that story me telling the story myself. And i think the boys i mean jackson young. Sam certainly has that intriguing. That interest is little things you know. A love watching the boys interact with people. They don't know and sign is getting greater. This and i love watching him ask questions. It's really simple simple thing but to think because there's a certain point meltzer kids i'm rightly so the world revolves around them. They just they saw in the president. Just talk about. What is they've gone. But then they get to the point where they suddenly realize. Actually it's not just about nice about what's going on around them and seeing that inquisitive nature grow and flourish is a really exciting thing to watch and up. The ninety nine will be somewhere and just catch a glimpse of sam talking to someone. Maybe he doesn't know but not just being asked questioned by that person but asking questions and engaging them in conversation and that's a very humbling thing to see because you kind of think along the way he has got the need to find out information. I love that's really exciting. So we've got the the what we've talked about in the morning on on good morning. Britain obviously ninja warrior oversee tipping point. These are big shows daily long up and down the country. How do you boys you say they come in and out of interesting what you're doing. Does that apply to ninja warrior or they are. They sat there ready to episode looking for do they think they would be successful. Tipping point ben so over the years they've come in and had to go on the machine. However i it turns out. It's not what you know. Says it sends out to their best night's two brothers at their school. There were the grandsons of jim. Bowen had this amazing moment where robot daniel came in with their mom because they both loved the show and we were filming around the corner from where we live and they all came in to have a and then the mom said to me. Then you don't know this. But i would never talk about it but actually jim bones that you can imagine set of. I stopped everything. Everyone stop and go. Oh my grandson. Jim who loved the show itself. The these questions know that so they be lucky enough to have a go on ticket machine and jack actually got the jackpot counter out and i'll never forget it went to bed that night. You must have been about five or six. But he went to bed that night and he said so that was pretty that had such good great and he said and then he just went and got the general counsel said. Yeah yeah and how much money do i like this. His mother son right there. I'll also and then taken into ninja. Was amazing when we were doing that. Because there's so much of what i've done when they really little not particularly interested but that was so much more tangible because all. Dan makes watching that so that was exciting. I mean what you've just said. That leads me really nicely onto the question. That i ask my guess. We're all aware of the concept of the data. Jokin house easy for us. Dads to embarrass our children but we flip on its head. Do your boys make you laugh. I mean i love the tipping point. How much tv. That's that's just hilarious. I'll do you guys have your own on the golf course. They are merciless sand particularly his. He's really fall in love with comedy. If he's not watching hypothetical taskmaster. Or any of james acosta's stuff. I mean he literally. He watches back to back. Comedy series on comedy central or netflix's or wherever so he's he's developing really dry clever since it's humor and jack. Just let me jacksonville about jokes in and really pure out childish thing and their their voice so you gotta be really careful. I remember freddie since of saying this because you know then when spreads east go on the road trip he would. while someone was holding a trait. He'd pulled their trousers down right right. That was a stupid prank right. I really stupid lokesh. Frank any said spine to the kids do to serve the what the gap and and that's what i found with the bullies now. Because they're bigger so you know the stupid stuff used in the playground that you'd kneel behind someone and you might push them over. Yes so the think. I have to keep full attention at all times. And they're going to try to trip me up jump. How may say that. They opt brilliant. They're very funny. Now take any opportunity to take. The mickey out meal would laugh at me. Sam slacking my bummer. Running up the hill is a classic example of obama facing and as much as as paint he'd say i love i love watching that sort of aspect of their personality developed band. Well i'd like to ask you now is a piece of advice. This is over the poets connor. The main reason i created in the first place your ninja warrior. Costa and good friend Cami he told us that it was it was. It was really lovely. Talks about fatherhood. Obviously he's children are adults but he remember his case and everything he said. He's always checking in on them just to see if they're okay and do to help them even adulthood which i found to be. You know a nice thing to hear him. Say what would your piece of advice beat so any of the parents who've downloading listening right now kelly's always checking in on them because he can't remember what you did five minutes ago doesn't remember as check for what he's he's just such a lovely dad and you jim now and he. I think he will admit this because he was playing. Football kids lives that he can be a grandfather in a way that he couldn't really be a dad because he's been fruits grandkids and and you know he's like the puck with his grandkids around him is just really really loved it and he's always asking about might as well. I think one of the key thing of the core things that i've always strive to do is be consistent you know. It's really easy to let kill ruled decisions that you make if you feel guilty. 'cause you've been working too much or because you haven't been there when you need to be so you might give in on something that you've set up a rule that you decide you want to try and implement a discipline on the kids and i think that that's perfectly understandable because we will feel at times botching trying to be consistent as a team make sure that the boundaries that you set for your kids always the same and you don't compromise just because you're feeling todd or giving you a hard time because if you put the hajjaj nutty doors then you reap the benefits down the line and that's certainly where we are right now. Undoubtedly the boys who they are and who des becoming and growing into really lovely young men. As because i think. That's you ticky by guidance onus. We were pretty strong as a team initially so even if one of us made the decision will said something. The other one didn't agree with we would always try never to disagree in front of the boys so if mom says you can't have that you can't have it that he can. I have that. Well mom said you can't and then maybe five minutes later up stairs say look. I'm not sure that's necessarily our deal with it so we disagree outside. Come to but we would never do in front of the boys so they always understood as a team. We were always going to be united. Kids the very clever. It's an instinct that they haven't you watch them do it. It's just genius. They don't necessarily get tour to. It's just half but they will divide and conquer together to do you know what i mean. They all little criminal mastermind being united being team being consistent. No matter how. How times certainly has served as well and actually allow us to make decisions. That have guided the boys. I think pretty pretty well up till now. And i think that's yet it's the bihar work at the start. The better a ease is hard to see though. Of course 'cause you'll little girls what twenty months going onto to yet and you can't imagine it being six loan being fifteen but trust me. It's going to go by diana in a blink of an eye. I can see sam bouncing around as a two year old coveting. Poke his brother's just poodle over him and me. I can see that. I can still feel that but now it's you know he's fifteen and allies on the sofa when he takes hope limits sofa and he's just too big around. He's got canoes the fate. It's it flies by ab. I think we are getting the benefit of how hong we worked initially and it's mostly because he's that good at this. The media anyway is not going to even be remotely any apparent. If i have been is because she's she has she has run the show renae. I'm lici poor second. Well i'm sure that's not true but you know we have many different parenting journeys and guests on that. You're every now and again. This seems like the right moment to do it. We have to raise a glass to the mums to. Oh absolutely so the boys. Download this podcast in fifteen years from now. What message would you like to leave for them. Ben the floor is yours. Firstly i told you not having snapchat when end-july is always for the voice. We spoke about year regardless for my thirteen. Now secondly i told you what time would win the champions league and thirdly it's your round about time you've got cloudy visit football on social media. They they're the only things that matter the three things and finally ben. There is an old saying about having to pick your favorite child. No one wants to do it. You don't have to name them. Do you have a favorite child. Yes or no. No no i honestly i i was listening to you with jeff jeff brazier podcast and jeff pools for too long but then very clearly out there are days. There are days with. Jack would drive me up. The wall and sam can do no wrong. There are other days. When jackie's just jackie still so cuddling still love very tactile and sam's much more standoffish. And kind of think how you know so you go through things with both of them. But i don't think i have a favorite. I'll tell you what would be more interesting. Question is to ask them. If they've got favorite paran. Actually that's probably much simpler answer. It wouldn't be banned. It's been great spending some time in your company. Thank your kind words about the dot pause.

The boys aren't gonna watch television and they aren't gonna have sugar. Only going to have really handmade wooden tools that have come from somewhere in the himalayas hanikos. None of that.
