"Former new york city mayor. David dinkins passed away last night at the age of ninety three. Join now but the reverend al sharpton president the next action network and host of politics nation. Right here on. Msnbc and rev. i've met david dinkins in person because you. I met him through you. I think he was here to do at thirty rock to do an interview for your show. And i'm so excited to meet him. He was such a great man. What are you remember. most about David dinkins well. I knew david dinkins. Since i was a teenager when i was sixteen and started my national youth movement group. He was the lawyer that incorporated us and down through the years. We maintain the relationship. And sometimes i would argue would on call them names and one hundred be more strident and it took time to understand that. He had such grace even under the most tumultuous circumstances and i felt he should be more strident. He said al. You have to learn how to get the job done. Keep your eye on the prize. But i most remember. Is that when we were facing a police. Killing of a young man named ahmadou diablo. Who in the hell of forty one bullets was killed. Nine thousand nine hundred bullets for only gone in his debut. Stick in a key in the door and the police thought. They said they thought he had a weapon. He was just going home. They were looking for someone else and david dinkins. When we started protests every day we would go down to the police headquarters. The main one in new york and sit in and hundreds would be arrested. He called me one. One is at what time y'all have. The demonstrations was a former. I said ten in the morning. he's coming down. I said but we're getting arrested. He's out seeing the morning and he came down and went to one police plaza where he had been mayor and got on a knee way before colin cabinet. He took a knee and was arrested and had them cuffed him with congressman. Charlie rangel and himself and me and we went to jail fighting police reform that he started with that civilian complaint review board. He never left the struggle. He was not wanting to be loud and boisterous but he was firm and made real change happen. Yeah absolutely you know. We started off and we could see charlie rangel and james brown. Lots of people in the photos that are that. I don't know if you can see them. That are coming up as as you're talking and you know we started off by talking about the way that dinkins was taken out of office by rudy. Giuliani this rage. That giuliani stoked already. There in the police against what mayor dinkins wanted to do which was changed policing. I feel like we're kind of having a rerun of that conversation about black lives matter about whether or not police should be free to kill it will in black communities. He tried to do something about it. Wouldn't you take from that fight. Is it dispiriting to think that after great men like this have tried after. You've tried after we've had all of these movements. We're still fighting about this were you. Were you fight you win. You don't fight to say the fight is over in a certain amount of rows. This is not pro boxing wrestling. You fight to you win and every struggle has had long struggles. I remember when nelson mandela gain which you mentioned then david dinkins had me as potted group. That went to the un with him. And just jackson. All of us. And when i thought about it took nelson mandela being jailed. Twenty seven years after fighting many decades around the pon-tae. How can we complain about fighting. We fight to. We win knowing that the victory is certain. And that's what they dickens would always say and as i want more national from new york activism. He said you still fighting. Now keep fighting. He come down national action network rallies. In fact he was there just a few months ago. We had his ninetieth birthday there and we never forgot this. Gentle giant had a had a spine of steel. And he didn't need to be boisterous he just needed to be effective and he was the one that broke that ceiling and made people know you could be the ceo of the biggest city in the world and perform. He revitalized times square. He started this whole community policing and in many ways you are more than correct. Joy is almost like to study donald trump. You have to study rudy giuliani. They took credit for things then get predecessor did and they used race to try and rev up a political career that ended up embarrassing them at the end. Indeed amen. thank you reverend now. It's always great to talk with you. Revenue sharpen. Thank you very much. I
How Will Smith and Janet Hubert settle their decades-long feud on 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion'
"So we'll and the first vibe. Janet hubert made amends during the fresh prince of bel-air reunion which just premiered on. hbo maximum. They both admitted in hard time for them over the years then genuine deep into just how much the feud cost her. When i left the show. I have this new baby and no one. Family disowned me. Hollywood disowned me. What you didn't realize either. That i was going through a lot at home right. You can no no very abusive marriage. You know i have. Children been divorced and second marriage and i can see now the level of pain and the level of struggle. But you know those words calling a black woman. Difficult in hollywood is to kiss of death death in your baskin back. When the president i wanna be is someone who protects you not someone at unleashes dodds. Wow so that was pretty deep. Why do you guys think it took them so long to finally have this heart to heart conversation. I'm actually surprised that didn't happen sooner off camera surprise at all that it didn't happen sooner. You know when you're in a feud with samadi and it's fresh and it hurts and then after a few months after a year five years goes by you. Just have a hard place for that person. You're not mad at them but you just don't wish them well. I think they got so use of that. Feeling of anger towards one another that just became a part of their lives and they probably for a long time. Didn't even realize and god what that feud was even a bout because it had been twenty seven years. Oh i disagree see. I don't think she's forgotten. What that feud is about for one second. I first of all. I started watching this last night and then stopped watching before this part. Of course those excited rundown this morning. This is some serious stuff. I mean obviously watching the fresh prince growing up realizing that and had been switched out with no. I realized that and i don't even remember how old we were. We were young. But i mean for things have gotten as bad as they did will smith and one of his co stars and we kind of nowhere to be this lovable likable hilarious guy. Like i was really surprised and for her to say you know to label the dark skinned black woman. Difficult in hollywood like as somebody that i was working with somebody that i was supposed to be family with has derailed my career for thirty years so little. It's a little too little too late. And i'm a huge will smith fan but once i kind of read what was going on between the two of them. It still isn't actually clear as to why he had such a problem with her. Yeah it's just really isn't too clear to me either. Besides the fact that she was able to work with but people are difficult all the time and the exactly you know it felt like a red table talk situation like taking a note from his wife jada. he's now opening up and having these heart to hearts. But being the will smith that we see and we know when we love now i. I'm surprised he wouldn't have this revelation. Sooner right over the years. I totally give being young. And he midst like your egos in the way you you you kind of. Who's on top of the world. He was really feeling himself. And and there was you know a little chip monir shoulder right and they typically goes away after a little while. I mean he took a long time. I mean they forced. You're i mean not. i don't want to say. They forced her out but they gave her such as she could thank you. They divorced her out by just giving her such a bad deal. I just don't understand. I think i would. I would have a clear to us where to get understanding what happened if i kind of knew what really started all of this but i just feel like this woman's career has really stalled because what what happened. I don't think that that's right but hold on the shoulders of will united because if sounds like the whole team may have thought because i thought yeah just like you know have only beef with will but i think it's like a family like if from this and both of you don't are both of us. Don't stand up or say something you're mad at the whole family because somebody was supposed to have your back. I think what happened. The situation was yes we do know will smith as in light one. The one who's connected but leaders get that way until about five ten years ago in in state like he was. This was a sitcom that was obviously very successful. I think for me to wrap it up in a bow. There's a disconnect as to why the tension was caused in the first place and back to justice point words. It's functional little family. If you guys made in my life difficult every day at seven months pregnant. I don't know how i would go to
interview With Father Gregory Boyle of Homeboy Industries
"Hey everyone. Welcome to how. I built this resilience edition from npr on these episodes. We talk with entrepreneurs and change makers how they're meeting today's challenges with new strategies and ideas and today we're going to hear from father gregory boyle. He's the founder of homeboy industries. Father greg founded homeboy industries after years of serving as a jesuit priest and later as a pastor at dolores mission church in east. La forty saw the devastating effects of gang related violence on his community after operating for over thirty years. Homeboy industries has become one of the largest gang intervention rehabilitation and re entry programs in the world. About fifteen thousand folks year walk through our doors trying to reimagine their lives. We were begun in nineteen eight. Just end my paris. Which was the poorest in the city but had had the highest concentration of gang activity. We had eight gangs at war with each other and i started to bury kids. I buried my two hundred and eighty third last week. Not all from that community. Obviously but i know a lot of gang members. So i get asked and and so we just started. Things started to school than we started the jobs program trying to find felony friendly employers then that was not so forthcoming so we started businesses. A bakery was the first in ninety two and now we have nine social enterprises but also a program of healing you know. Sluggers tattoo removal. There's therapy case management classes. It's an amazing series of programs. And as you mentioned i mean things like tattoo removal or just helping people kind of reenter society after being gangs or being incarcerated obviously while it's changing many employers still reluctant to hire people with felony records and in response to that you create your own businesses aside from the bakery which is probably the best known because it has locations in los angeles tummy a little bit more about some of the other social enterprises that homeboy industries has launched so at our headquarters. We have homeboy bakery homegirl. Cafe and homeboy homegirl marchandise. And then we have the restaurant at the airport a city hall. We have homeboy diner. The only place to get food at city hall. We have a thing called homeboy grocery where we sell chips salsa and guacamole and a variety of grocery stores boy recycling which is recycling. You waste which quite an extensive of business and growing amboise silkscreen and embroidery. That's been around for twenty seven years. Lap boesky nine in there so That's a lot. that's a lot. I was telling you earlier before we went live that i saw you profile and sixty minutes in. I think in the late eighties early nineties and i grew up in in los angeles. You're such a legendary figure there. I'm you've been awarded the california peace prize. And i mean you're a priest at the end of the day like your priest you do. Mass obviously socially distant for people who are incarcerated. But you're also an entrepreneur. Did you consider yourself as an entrepreneur when you founded this organization. Do you think of yourself that way. Now why board would never sign on the notion that i know anything about business so i don't really see it that way but we're always responding if tattoos had become a an obstacle in gang members. One of them off. We started that even in terms of our businesses. They were kind of haphazard you. There was no business plan. There was an abandoned bakery across the street from our school. Our parochial school in a movie producer. Ray stark after the unrest in ninety two wanted to help and i said well okay. I don't know by this bakery. It has ovens they don't work. You could fix them. We could put hairnets on enemy rival gang members. Well that was the entirety of my business plan. So i think i think everything else kind of operated in the same way. There was a couple from the parish who wanted to start rodriguez silk screening. And i said well. Don't start homeboys screening in. So that's how that was born so you know it wasn't like go some big master plan and it was all kind of accidental. You know we have a thing called the global homeboy network. Which is you know. Three hundred programs in the country outside kind of modeled on methodology. You know they all want to start a social enterprise and they all want to do food. Which i always say don't but you know because food is hard. Yeah restaurants are really hard sex in us to a bakery cafe and it's hard to talk people out of this. But i was tell do silk screening. That's recession proof. Everybody wants a shirt their family reunion or they're five k. race. And they'll go with you even if it's more expensive because it's kind of the. Paul newman feel good. You know it's like yeah. It's cost more but it helps employees

His grandson's name is bobby. Bre qatar now bobby. Did i pronounce that close enough. Yes sir okay good. I like to say my northwest missouri nasal hillbilly kind of trying funny. What about that. I just had a comment. Somebody said always seems weird to have a guy with a southern voice. Say the word capco. Now i don't really consider southern voice to you have got northern voice to people up this guy resume shah firm chicago to him. I have a southern boy. So a hewlett you guys. Listen to bobby talk a little bit and you'll hear that salt sweet syrupy south louisiana voice. Our true southern boys right. Yeah it's a little different than new. All has its own unique accent. I've been confused being from boston. New york no. Yeah you know. I hear that now. Wow i do hear that many dollars around the city you know. Talk to different people. You can tell what part of the city from interested in so now. Let's get to the meat of this. You've written a book here recently. Called food for kings. And it's part to crime as part history in his part a recipe book cookbook. If you will food for king diamond jim. A new orleans legend now diamond. Jim mocatta was your grandfather. And there's a really interesting book folks especially if you like to cook. It's got those really great new orleans recipes in it and this guy your grandfather. Your grandpa was one of the most colorful characters in new orleans from what i've read about him. It was unbelievable. Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got interested in doing this particular book. Okay very first of all. Thank you for having me on your show. appreciate it. earth off a married with two children in military. Over twenty years i retired in two thousand and eight and i've been aircraft mechanic for american airlines and now delta. I picked up this project after my father died and wait basically he motivated me to kind of pick up the torch and carry it. My dad was a dentist for forty years and he always wanted to do a screen. Play or movie per se. He's never do it. I have i did a screenplay originally. But i didn't go anywhere with it so i decided a couple years ago. Put a book together and kind of tell a story about my grandfather while i'm telling. The story basically blended in combination photos and recipes as i journey through his whole life. I start off when he's a childhood and carried on throughout his life until the success of his life until he died. It's a good read. It took me about eight years to go through it and do the research are did get a lot of information from father. My father ahead a manuscript he has deposition that he had put together with a attorney. Back in nineteen seventy seven. So i use all that information and took my tom everything in the book that i've talked about a kind of support it with a document and the article. Either that was given to me handed down to me or maybe that of actually found in the library found a lot of information doing the research about my grandfather in the library his life. It was pretty easy because his life was documented since he was a teenager so every time i tried to fill in the blank. Something in my father didn't pass down to me. I was able to answer all the questions that i wanted to answer about his life. You know interesting. That stuck a little bit about his early life. He fought under the name of jimmy moran which is kind of like no joy hupa in chicago took on an irish name in order to fight. I think more likely it was a lot of prejudice against italians in those days. Especially in new orleans. If you remember we go all the way back to the black hand days and they they killed the chief of police some Supposedly some black hander. Kill the chief of police in of new orleans storm to jail and hung. I dunno must have been six or eight say ends i. I can't remember exactly for sure. How many so. It would have been wise for him to fight on her an irish name. I would imagine tell me about his fight career. Let's get started. Well that was one thing. They kind of treat. My curiosity was widely. Any changes his name in the book. I did find a quote where someone asks them. Same questioned do an interview. He said he did for business reasons. But that was part of it because you gotta realize he didn't get into business opened up first restaurants on nineteen forty nine. He changed his name. I found articles where he had his name change in teens early. Nineteen hundreds. He hung around a couple of friends of his feet. Herman who's an italian pita. Golota was his last name. And the other guy. By the name of powell moran. His name was francis. Paul miranda and all of them were full blooded italian as you know and you listeners. Know that back. Then the titans will kinda frown upon. They weren't considered equal. Maybe to a lot of different even the irish whatever. So i've found out. He had changed his name one. He didn't want his mother was fighting when he was on the fighting card. You know and during the preliminaries in hours fighter. Irish name would draw big crowds for fight. A lot of people don't know new orleans was actually a big boxing city equivalent to chicago and new york but on a smaller scale of course but it was a big boxing town in a drool audit. And that's how he got to meet jack dempsey marciano. You know all those big fights back then because they came to new orleans and then he connected so his first circle of friends will all italians. pete. Herman was abandoned. Champion thinking sixty nine fights from nineteen twelve to nineteen twenty two now as far as my grandfather. He wasn't as big of a boxer as those guys. He did it for my research. Maybe about six years and then he got a little older. He got into referee in and he started refereeing. He did that until about twenty seven years old. Then that's when you up his barber shop in the open up a barber shop with a boxer front of his last name was burke in as when he got an barring after referee

Jeffrey Toobin fired from The New Yorker after exposing himself on a Zoom call
"Okay. This first story. I think is the funniest story of twenty twenty. I believe they talked about it before. But there's like an update to what happened and is pretty epic. I don't know if you guys remember. But a few months ago the new yorker had to suspend one of their authors and legal analysts. By the name of jeffrey toobin what happened with him. Basically he was on a zoom call. An important call with the new yorker staff and some people from cnn and some people from wnyc radio and during the soom call you guys today soom whatever during the zoom call you guys he with the camera on and with the microphone on was out here controlling himself so not okay like like oh my god so the new yorker not doing with what to do with him at the moment so they had disclosed suspended him but now they did fire him and he did in a tweet today explain. He said i was fired today. By at new yorker after twenty seven years as a staff writer. I will always love. The magazine will miss my colleagues and we'll look forward to reading their work. My question is how the heck do you bounce back from this. This is so embarrassing. Apparently he thought his excuse was that he thought he was on mute and he thought his camera was off. Is like hello sir. When you're on zoom call like you can see your face. They're right now. no. I don't go on too. Many zoom calls me. Maybe i'm on one once a week For the most part. If i've talked to people or do business with people it'll be facetime and for zoom calls like i do do teams meetings sometimes my boss and we do sometimes have like an entire town hall meeting. That's what we call them where it's like. Everyone on staff is part of the meeting. I would be disgusted if one of my coworkers did this on the zoom call. Honestly and i i. It's sewn appropriate like you can't do this on your own time like. Why do you have to do this on company hours your i. Would you want your co worker to get fired over something like this like i definitely think. So that's just so disrespectful to all your other coworkers to everyone's time to your own self like just not okay. Over guys and on top of it wasn't just his co workers like these are other clients on the call. Cnn was on the call. And like i said that news radio so yes. i'm sorry. He deserves to be fired. I don't even know why that was a question. If it was a woman right ladies if it was us like switching out a bra during zoom call an accident you we would be fired. We will be fired. This over here. Exasperating himself and he got suspended for a few weeks and now finally is five. Yeah i'm sorry. Don't way way way too much and just not okay like i would definitely want my coworker fired.
Their Service Entitles Them To Low-Cost Loans. But Veterans Often Pay More.
"John. Four is a retired marine corps. Colonel he served for twenty seven years. Did you see the big fish jumped for is giving me a virtual tour of his harbourside house in a development in punto gorda florida. He's got a dock and a little powerboat and can you see the pool. Oh yeah oh. That's gorgeous yeah all right. Can you see the kayaks and the dock. Actually four is making me kind of jealous of his house at the start of the year interest rates were falling and he wanted to refinance with the. Va loan that has alone backed by the us. Department of veterans affairs vets and service members are supposed to be able to an extra low interest rate and better terms that way so you started calling around and he says the company loaned depot told him we can do. Va loan for you. But it's going to be at three seven five percent interest and they had a lot of fees in there but it was a lower rate than he had at the time so he says he was just about to do the deal with lump depot when he happened to see an ad for. Va loan to a company. Called own up. He went through them and he says he paid lower fees and got more than a full percentage point lower on the rate on his three hundred and thirty thousand dollar loan. That means about twenty five hundred dollars a year in lower payments. He he says when he went back and told loan depot about the better deal. They then offered him a much lower rate to as a veteran. You expect you're getting something from the government. I i was shocked that they didn't just tell me outright. What the best rate. What's a lot of veterans. Assume the same thing according to patrick boy adji. He's the ceo of own up. It's a new company that helps people find a good deal on home loans through a group of different lenders. He says veterans think. They're supposed to get a really good interest rate on a. Va loan so many. Don't shop around but says while these loans are backed by the va they're made by private companies and he says some will head people with much higher costs and basically a worse deal than they qualify for. And they're veterans the. Sit there and think to yourself that this person who served our country is now going to get taken advantage of. And they had no clue they had no idea so in his company did a study. They're releasing it today. They took the top twenty lenders for va loans and looked at the annual percentage rate that the companies charged borrowers on all the loans they made last year and so when we looked at the spread candidly. We were quite surprised that it was as wide as it. Was that the best lenders. And the worst lenders were so far apart from one another. The study found that navy. Federal credit union offered people. The lowest rates at the other higher cost end of the spectrum was a lender called new day. Usa it's a new day for veterans. Who want to refinance at me as a vet. The company is a sponsor of the army navy. Football game it runs. Tv ads with plenty of american flags. We wanna do whatever is best for the individual service person. The study found that of the top twenty. Va lenders new day charged. The highest interest rates more than a full percentage point higher the navy federal which over the life of three hundred thousand dollar thirty year loan is more than seventy thousand dollars. More in interest payments new day in a statement said that the study has a quote serious flaw. It said that's because the study lumps together different types of va loans. That are not the same but michael. Hoon is skeptical of that explanation. He's the president of the non-profit center for responsible lending. The information from this lender does not explain their borrowers are being charged so much more than other lenders are charging. Their va borrowers as far as loan depot. The company that john four. I talked to the study. Found that during two thousand nineteen. It's rates were about average. The company is also a recent financial supporter of npr biology. With own up says the big takeaway from his study for him is that people need to shop around and find the best rate that they can and negotiate for the best rate. Because if you don't it could be one of the most costly mistakes you make in your financial life that's good advice for. Va loans and other types of mortgages to chris arnold npr
FEAR OF FEAR
"This lady was cautious. She decided she wouldn't let herself go and her drinking and she would never never take that morning drink. I didn't think I was an alcoholic. I thought my problem was that I had been married to a drunk for twenty-seven years and when my husband found a a I came to the second meeting with him thought it was wonderful simply marvelous for him but not for me. Then I went to another meeting hand. I still thought it was wonderful for him. But not for me. It was a hot summer night in 1949 down in the Greenwich Village group and there was a little porch out there in the old meeting place on Sullivan Street. And after the meeting I went out on the steps for some are dead in the doorway stood a lovely young girl. Who said are you one of us houses to I said, oh goodness know my husband is he's in there. She told me her name. I said, I know you from somewhere. It turned out that she had been in high school with my daughter. I said Eileen. Are you one of those people and she said oh, yes. Yep. In this as we walk back through the hall. I for the first time in my life said to another human being I'm having trouble with my drinking too. She took me by the hand and introduce them to the girl that I'm very proud to call my sponsor this girl and her husband are both in a a and she said to me oh, but you're not the alcoholic. It's your husband. I said, yes. She said how long have you been married? I said 27 years. She said 27 years to an alcoholic. How did you ever stand it? I thought now here's a nice sympathetic so long, this is for me. I said, well I stood it to keep the home together. And for the children's sake she said, yes, I know. You're just another martyr, aren't you? I walked away from that girl grinding my teeth and cursing under my breath. Fortunately. I didn't say a word to George on the way home, but that night I tried to go to sleep and I thought your some martyr Jane wage. Look at the record and when I looked at it, I knew I was just as much a drunk as George was if not worse. I nudged Jorge the next morning and I said I'm in and he said oh, I knew you'd make it. I started drinking nearly thirty years ago right after I was married my first drinking spree was on corn liquor and I was allergic to it. Believe me. I was deathly sick every time I took a drink but we had to do a lot of entertaining my husband like to have a good time. I was very young and I wanted to have a good time to the only way I knew to do it was to drink right along with him. I got into terrific trouble with my drinking I was afraid and I had made my mind up that I would never get drunk. So I was watchful and careful. We had a small child and I loved her dearly so that held me back quite a bit in my drinking career even so every time I drank I seem to get in trouble. I always wanted to drink too much. So I was watchable always watchful counting my drinks if we were invited to a formal party and I knew they were only going to have one or two drinks. I wouldn't have any I was being very cagey. Because I knew that if I did take one or two, I might want to take five or six or seven or eight. I did stay fairly good for a few years, but I wasn't happy and I didn't ever let myself go in my drinking as my son our second child came along and as he became school age and was away at school. Most of the time something happened. I really started drinking with a bang. I never went to a hospital. I never lost a job. I was never in jail and unlike many others. I never took a drink in the morning. I needed a drink but I was afraid to take a morning drink because I didn't want to be a drunk. I became a drunk anyway, but I was scared to death to take that morning drink. I was accused of it many times when she went to play bridge in the afternoon, but I really never did take a morning drink. I was still woozy from the night before. I should have lost my husband and I think that only the fact that he was an alcoholic to kept us together.

If you have a business and you want more exposure you are in the right spot. We are back with another exciting guessed. Her name is Anne Bingham. She has a couple different businesses and she is here today to talk about those so everybody welcome and Bingham to the show and are you there? I am hi there. Hi Ann. How are you today? I'm great. Thanks for having me. Yeah. Thank you for making wage. Time I know things are kind of crazy they are but you know what? I always love to chatting with you. And so yeah, I'm just really happy to be here. Yeah. I'm excited to have Ian while before we get into the juicy stuff about your business and who you are and all that. I'd like to know what I'm sure the audience would like to know a little bit about you as a person. Can you elaborate a little bit Yeah, so I am I'm a mom. I have two amazing grown children. So yes, those of you who have younger kids and teenagers. I promise you it is every bit worth it is there is life on the outside and and it's pretty spectacular on the other side. I've been married to my husband Rob for twenty-seven years. We've been together for thirty years and we met in college and we've been really dead. Just have the that marriage that you know makes everybody ill we still like to spend time together hold hands and you know, all of those just wonderful things. I don't really know how we do it. But it's it's a great relationship. He's my very best friend in the world. We live in South Saint Louis. We live just a couple of blocks away from Soulard in a historic house a hundred and thirty years old and with our Pitbull our kids are by-and-large moved out. My daughter has a nice place. My son is in his last semester at Rolla and yes, we live with our rescued Pitbull and we lived about a mile and a half or so from the neighborhood that I grew up in. So I think that's my life in a in a snapshot right now outside of work wage. Um, and yeah, then the work side is I'm currently a I guess the easiest way to say it is I am a full-time yoga instructor and freelance Adventurer I guess is the easiest way to say it started doing that when I retired from being a preschool director and teacher I did that for about 30 years and gave that up because of a chronic illness. So that's kind of what landed me where I am now awesome. Well, let's talk a little bit about yoga is yeah some people like to do yoga has some health benefits. I guess. My first question to you man is with covideo around are you offering virtual class? I am yeah, so there's so covid has changed a lot about the way that we exercise and the way that we met a lot of things right and so I do virtual classes, but the way that I do them is a bit different. So I do see two things and one is I do private sessions for for folks individually online. And the other thing that I do is I do a kids class on Thursdays and Fridays because one of the things that we know is that Covetous really hitting our kids in a very really unprecedented Thursday. So the reason that I'm doing online classes like this is because when you're doing a there's lots off Studios out there right now that are doing online classes, but when you're doing that you're in effect watching an instructor and you're not really getting a great deal of feedback from that instructor on how you are holding a pose or how you were moving your body and that can provide some problems. If you're not if you're not doing a pose in the proper form you can end up getting injured you might find yourself in a class. That's maybe not appropriate for you. It might be too easy. It might be too hard and so doing a class with me individually. First of all, there's a little humor to it. Like it's just you and me wage. It's just like two people hanging out and then we personalize absolutely everything to you so that I can actually see what you're doing. And I can say, you know, maybe move your foot a little bit further to the left or to the right or if that feels like it's not feeling good. Then let's use a block or something like that. Maybe make that feel a little bit better for your body and give you what you need. So that's why we're doing those personal sessions rather than kind of group sessions.
Front Desk Success with Jerry Durham
"Well, hey Jerry, welcome to show. How are you? I'm very well. How are you doing this beautiful? All day I can't complain. It's a Friday, right? Exactly. All right. So for those who don't know who Jerry Durham the PT is why don't you give us a little background on yourself off? What do we got? We got 27 years in the as a license pts for twenty-seven years in the profession. I early on worked in just about every month in there was except for Pediatrics and neuro rehab for about the first five to six years of my career and then finally went out on my own and then partnered up and down that Journey was about twenty year journey of business running a broad. I mean back up running a practice in a clinic and then running a business and then break out of that about five years ago now. Yeah, I think it's about five years. I get I get lost in the story but about five years ago and now working on basically wage. A game for lack of anything else taking everything I learned in hindsight from those twenty years and going here's the way you here's the way I did it wrong don't do this. And as you age both know and most people listening to this Healthcare tends to focus on the providers primarily and my big takeaway where I am now is this understanding this whole experience of the team roll the team role in patients success the team role and business success, you know, patient experience patient life cycle all those things and that's what I'm doing now. So yeah, it's been a long it's been I mean, it's been a long freaking journeyman twenty-seven years a long time. Yeah. Yeah, you've got a whole bunch of experience and I think it at one point I I found out about you cuz I was listening to a podcast years ago about you've taken your practice which was in network and then pulling into cash and all that and the importance of obviously understanding your patient relationship cycle your patient life cycle, whatever whatever you want to call log. To convert those patients to get them to come in and stay. So tell me a little bit then about your company you run now, it's called the client experience company. Right? Right. So back to what you said just for context for everybody about twelve years ago where and by the way, I don't tell this story as the guy who walked up the hill and snow both ways to school and just for context and I'm not here to say it's easier now, it's harder now. It's anything I just want everybody to understand so about twelve years ago, right? I went out and network and no joke people that nobody even knew without a network box. Right? Nobody was using the word cash practice cash PT everybody, you know, if there was a cash practice it was like a dinky little office with a dinky little person who like had all their clients were judged according clients. Yeah, like 10 people, right? So we made a business decision to go out and network. It was strictly business. Can't remember who the first I think it was wage. That was our first contract that fell below our cost of doing business. So I was like it was an easy. This is what's funny. It's you know, you read all these things and people like I don't know what to do. Do I take insurance or life insurance. I'm like, it's a business decision. It's based on your client and write what you need to generate to pay your bills if Blue Cross is contract is $75 per visit and it costs you $80 to deliver care. That's a no-brainer. I can't yeah exactly at work with them. So twelve years ago, and that's really where the Where I look back and reflect where I was like hm. I gotta do something different and that's where this all patient experience thing and the front desk and then realizing which probably a lot this is the beauty every time I do this like every year that goes by more people are nodding their head going. Yeah, I get that and I'm like, that's cool because when you're ago two years ago three years ago people like I did not get it or that's not true. But this understanding that you know, if If Jerry calls your clinic that that first touch point right the front desk the journey starts there. So the patient success starts Thursday the business success. It's I call it I caught the entry point to the business everybody, you know used to be used to be everybody thought the entry point was well when when they get in the room with the provider with Brad and I'm like, yeah that first experience with the clinician, right? Yeah, and that was already goes I went through that right? Oh, yeah, and I went through that for a long time in my business. We're all I cared about was the providers right home. And so, you know just learning the value of all of a sudden wait a minute we managed and set expectations before they arrived we build trust before they arrived what I call a team Alliance instead. They're reputed client and while look at this magically here's the beauty of it patient numbers improved and buy pay sorry patient measurements patient success. So, yep. Getting better people happier all that stuff improve yet. Then my business metrics change. So I was like what's going on? Right? And that's been that last twelve thirteen years. It took me all that time to start equating. This change here was because of this right going further Upstream. It was like, wow, we changed the first phone call and we stopped getting billing complaints. It wasn't a billing issue. So things like that and that's off the company the client experience company does right we come in we look at the whole kit and caboodle. We look at your whole process, right? Do you understand who your ideal client is do you understand and it could be multiple. Do you understand what you're serving them with right? Cuz no man. Nobody wants physical therapy, right? Everybody wants a solution and then looking at the life cycle and then look up the system's you've built in to create an experience that you want your clients to help

But then there's this infrastructure that folks have been talking about where they're not getting headlines because it's not as cute as crypto CDs. But, but because someone has a relationship to the financial world, they know they know what it needs, and they're willing to do the long slog of development that could very well take years before they even get something to their customers. But they're willing to take it because they can see ten twenty years ahead. It doesn't seem like there's any other way to do it. Yeah. I completely agree with everything. You just said we were particularly fund makes a lot of the people. I'm a bit of a sort of naive to miss when it comes to technology looking at it. What can we do? What's possible? Then punt that with people like most is been that done it at Jp Morgan for twenty seven years who actually know why things all the way they are. And you know. Would be nice, you know, someone disintermediated CSD's will make real time settlement teaser across the board. But there are practical reasons why this is possible or take an act of congress to actually change some of these regulations. So that's probably not the best thing. I thought up to be trying to be taking on so in sub with same institutions and they recognize that too. And they are actually adapting evolving, so agree. You've got to have that that make sure of of the deep experience of being done it across the board. Then also a little bit of new startup in these Jassem to to get keep going for as long as it takes. I am curious because I feel like these are still pretty different tracks to one on this what they call decentralized finance track where it's gonna company, but it's this team of developers. And then they get this outset and incentivize behaviors on this network. And I see these developers. They're building the centralize money markets or to centralize derivatives or essentially exchange, and I'm just curious. How does that and does that end up really competing with traditional financial services down the line or do they work together in some way, or what's the vision there? I don't fig most of these things are actually centralized. I think what of talk about the centralize whatever service is bullshit because at the end of the day, I think recently ether delta, the founder was paid a four thousand dollar fine of the SEC for her so called this centralized application. So they centralized fine right on him for his essential as application. I think also Red Eye Dax which is a large larger decentralized exchange is now instituting KYC on their platform, which is kind of in crunch groups with this whole aspect of anyone can trade, but then we're doing KYC news. So obviously somebody's afraid that they're going to prison for something, which means it's not really centralized..

"Listening who are a little unfamiliar with your story. Please hit us with a little bit about your background. And how you ended up infiltrating the Hells Angels motorcycle gang. Well, I was a federal agent ATF agent for twenty seven years over the course of that time almost all my experience, and all my city was an undercover work over the course of my career I participated in over five hundred undercover operations one of which was the infiltration of the Hells Angels motorcycle game, which was primarily based in Arizona. But which went all over the country with operations. Wow. Okay. Yeah. As a single guy can kind of understand the philosophy of. Hey, if something happens to me, so be it. But as a family man as a father, there's so much more at stake. There's so much more to lose. So how did you handle the fear of one something happening? To you. And now your family having to move on without you or to being uncovered and your family now becoming the target of a retaliation pull. That's a good question and those fears for my family became reality. After the Hells Angels case concluded in my undercover operations were done. My true identity was revealed and the death in violence threats came and those threats went well beyond me. There was threats to get videotape. The gang rape of my wife or death threats on my kids. There were threats locate my daughter who was a teenager at the time and torture her there were threats. I had Hells Angels threatening to say, hey, we know what your kids go to school. We know you love that little boy when he gets off the when you're waiting for him to get off the school bus someday. And he doesn't get off you. Think about who's got what we're doing to in two thousand eight my house was burned to the ground gonna fail to Sassa mation attempts. My family was inside the house at the time that arsonists hit they barely escape they escape with smoking Latian injuries.

And what it takes to thrive in a constantly changing workplace earn a new book called imagine it Ford Beth it's good to have you on. Thanks for having me kind. So let's get this out of the way. I well. Why did you leave GE was it just time? Well, it was time. But I left sooner than I imagined. I would we had a leadership change. And you know, how that goes new new boss new team and the old the old team's gotta go. She she says rather bluntly. That's you know, when you gotta go you gotta go. I guess right. Yeah. I thought a lot. I thought a lot this year about knowing when to exit and how you think about that. Because I think I'm all about change. And I think knowing your exit is also something you have to think about well. So that's really interesting that you bring that up because the topic of this book of of. Changing creativity. And all of that you say yourself in this book that despite all the success you had in your career. I mean vice-chair G for Grenell out. You are not atypical change agent. I'm not I come to this as an introvert reserved person. I hold back. I have an example where I worked in CNN and for Ted Turner for a year before he knew my name. And so I'm just not the one that put the ideas out there, and I had to really work to overcome my natural reserve and also some confidence along the way gimme a case study would you and let me put the caveat on the answer. You can't pick one of the big innovative companies that we all know and love like Facebook, Amazon or or apple right? Who do you like out there who's doing change and innovation? Right. I've I've been really intrigued by what I see WalMart doing right now. Digital onslaught calms. What do they have a million employees? I mean, the scale and complexity they by jet. They realized they have to go digital what I like about their story is they recognized. I think maybe late, but they've recognized it that they have to work with their strengths. What are their strengths one? They have a lot of employees to they have physical locations. So they've been investing more in having people pick up the packages on their way, home from work. It's hard to change from within. When you're a legacy company will let me poke in the aisle a little bit, right? And talk about g e because GM is maybe the granddaddy of legacy companies in this economy. Right. And and it has I won't say fallen on hard times lately. But it's been undergoing substantial change. Not always successfully it's not even in the Dow industrials anymore. I mean, it's it's a legacy company that is still trying to make the turn. Yeah. And I I mean, gee has fallen out of grace certainly from the public perception of late. It's a great company, and I was so proud to work there. I wish people could separate the stock from the company, but it's also a public company, and so I realized even saying that maybe sound a bit naive. But I think people especially with established companies, I think we underestimate the complexity that happens with scale the the need to keep the core machine running and innovate in the new, and it just creates a lot of tension and complexity and cleaning that up is really hard. And I I think we hold our legacy companies to a to a different standard just because we expect it to be easier, and it's not so let me ask you actually about taking a risk and again, an anecdote in the book Steve Jobs called and said, hey, come work for you. In point of fact, he called twice right? Yeah. And you said, no. Yeah. Budget? You look back at that. And go we need a break pregnant pause after that, right? Right. Yeah. I mean granted this for apple game. You know, what it is today? But it wasn't all long ago. Yeah. And I'll give you just a little bit of context that I was at NBC at that time in a really miserable assignment. And I had a lot of reasons to wanna leave there, and my gut was this wasn't the right job for me. I also think I was a bit afraid, and I probably didn't have the confidence. Even then that I could make it there. And so it's one of those things that I'll be honest. I did regret it at times, especially when their stock price went up. What was that? I remember sitting down, and and we're like how good could that stock ever be? But I think just regretted an opportunity maybe to push myself in a new way. But I did it for good reasons to I was incredibly loyal to the path. I was on and the G gave me lots of opportunities to grow and be innovative. So I had reasons to also know I could forge a different pathway was to Beth Comstock used to be a GE for very long time. Now, she writes books. This one is called imagine it forward. Thanks a lot. Appreciate you, Tom. Thanks kind. Nice talking to you. Thank you. Coming up heads and tips are cut off over here. As we move down the line. They cut it plates moved into a melon process. Aluminum.
