He was rushing to get to votes and tried to get through a door that is usually open. It was closed. Bowman pulled the alarm, forcing the evacuation of the Canon office building. This happened as House Democrats were working to delay a vote on a funding bill to keep federal agencies open. Some Republican lawmakers had even floated the idea of drafting a motion to expel or censure Bowman from the House. He is expected to plead guilty, formally apologize, and pay a $1 ,000 fine.

A highlight from Ep393: How Do You Increase Your Visibility? - Jeremy Haig
"It makes you not only like a trusted voice in the space, but also like kind of a cool friend that people want to see what you have to say. So I'll say it's those consistency played a huge role. Second was finding my voice. And third was really committing to my own marketing strategy. Most hosts never achieved the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. What's up, podcaster? It's your host, Adam Adams. And today our episode is going to be probably a little bit different because I don't know how deep we will go into some of this. But the guest that I have on has a couple of podcasts and a YouTube channel as well that he's been growing. And when I was listening to one of his episodes earlier, it just made me think. It made me question things. It made me not sure about what to think or to not think. And you may have felt somewhere similar to that. So the main podcast that we're going to be interviewing Jeremy about today is a podcast called When Walls Can Talk. And there's a lot of interesting stuff on there. And like I said, it makes me think. And I want to get his journey why through he started the podcast, what he's trying to do out of the podcast. And it looks like he's really trying to make this the full -time thing where it's the main focus and the main source of revenue. So let's figure this out. Let's dive in. It's a little bit different. And I think it's going to be fun. What's up, Jeremy Hage? Thank you for having me. It's really nice to be here. I love this topic and I love talking about it. So I started a podcast. So I started the show in June of 2021. So it's only a little over two years old now. I'm definitely fledgling in the podcast space. And what really started it is actually living here in Colorado. I stumbled upon stories of these locations that many would deem paranormal or supernaturally charged or that kind of thing. And the more that I dug into learning about it from a research and historical perspective, the more I discovered that there was a lot more going on here than I thought. And I was just so blown away by the stories that I was finding that I had to tell somebody. And I think my friends kind of got sick of it. So I ended up pulling out a microphone and I kept pushing it off for a long time. Honestly, I didn't really know what I was doing. And in many ways, I'm still learning all of that as I go. But eventually, thanks to two really dear friends of mine who run their own podcast called Ouija Boards and Midnight Margs, two of my best friends, they basically just plopped a microphone in front of me and said, surprise, you're putting out an episode. And really grateful that they did because everybody has to start somewhere. And while I've grown so much from my first episode until now, it's still one of my most talked about and most listened to episodes of my entire 60 episode calendar or catalog. And so I started it because I just think that there's more going on in the world around us than we recognize. Well, let me say this, the paranormal and true crime podcast space is very saturated. There's a lot of content out there. And there's a lot of really big names in this particular niche of podcasting. And so what was really important to me was to identify what can I say about this topic that's completely different from anybody else. And I really appreciate your comment about making you think because that's ultimately what I settled on is, instead of just telling you stories about paranormal experiences and true crime stories, which are all fascinating and wonderful, I would rather allow the people who have already carved out that space to maintain that and why don't I do something that's a little bit different. So my vision was, let's focus on the humanity behind the stories. Let's use these stories of passed on people who hoped and dreamed and lived and passed and failed and all of these things that happened in these charged spots. And use their stories as a way to learn more about our own world. Let's learn more about our own society. And so my goal at the end of each episode is I want you to walk away thinking about something and find a way to use that story to make you think about something in your current life. That makes me feel like I've done my job. I've used the space in this niche to create people who aspire to be better stewards of the world and of the people around us. So yeah, that's kind of the space I've carved for myself is finding ways to tell famous paranormal stories, famous paranormal locations with a very unique perspective. So real quick are all of your podcast episodes and I think we're in like season three, episode 17 ish. I'm not sure if that's right when where you are now. And you mentioned in the beginning that it started out as a Colorado thing. And I wanted to find out is because the story that I listened to, I wasn't aware that was in Colorado. So I'll ask you if you've later kind of moved on to other states. Yeah, 100%. So my first six major episodes, I call them my production episodes. Those are the ones that I do with like sound effects and music and stuff like that to try to immerse you in the moment or in a period of time. Those first six were all Colorado. And then from there, I wanted to kind of spread my wings and grow into new locations. Some are really famous in the paranormal community, places like the Villisca Axe Murder House or Waverly Hill Sanatorium stuff that you see on like the paranormal investigation shows all the time. But I also try to sprinkle in some ones that people might be a little less familiar with because I think that they deserve to be heard. I have quite a few of those coming up in the rest of 2023 and into the beginning of 2024. But yeah, no, I've definitely extended beyond Colorado. I feel like it might be important for me to add a few more of those back because people really really appreciated those. But currently, I'm definitely on a more international kick. I try to pick somewhere from all different continents. I'm going to South Africa next year. I'm going to Australia. By going I mean taking you there. Are you personally going to be flying out and visiting? That's part of my hope. Honestly, you can write the whole damn thing off. Since it's part of your podcast, and you want the podcast to be your main source of income. It's a write off. It doesn't have to come out your pocketbook. This is true. I think there's so much that can be done with it in the future. I think I'm only genuinely feel like I'm only just beginning of what this is going to be. It's cool too, because I recently got cast. This is kind of separate from the podcast. I got cast on a new YouTube series that's going around Colorado doing paranormal investigations. So that's been a lot of fun too. It started to get me away from the studio and out into spaces in a new way. But here's hoping I end up traveling to some of these because recording live from there would just be the coolest thing. Yeah, it would. Hey, why do you have more than one podcast? It seems like this one. I need to pull it up. Is it called When Walls Can Talk? Correct. Okay. When Walls Can Talk. It seems like that was kind of like the main one and you started that at June of 21. But when I was listening in, you advertised another and you talked about another one that was switching to YouTube and just kind of curious why two or three different shows? Why not just one show? Absolutely. When Walls Can Talk is definitely that's my flagship. That's my that's my baby. That's the one that's will always be kind of number one. And everything else that I've chosen to create has all been in support of that network in support of my avatar in support of who is the consumer of this content and what other spaces interest them, as well as which one of those spaces aligned with my own fascinations and interests. I remember in high school, one of my dreams was actually to be I wanted to be a cinematographer, I wanted to work in film. And my life has taken lots of twists and turns. But I've always maintained that fascination for film. But even more than just film, it's also the world that goes on behind the camera and behind the scenes. And as I've done my own personal research into some of my favorite movies, I discovered that there are some wild stories around the movies that we know and love that kind of tell stories of how they almost weren't created, how people seemingly were cursed on set, how people had tragic accidents, murders, like, for example, we're talking about like Wizard of Oz. Wizard of Oz is one of the darkest backstories of any movie I've ever researched. It's insane. And I feel like that doesn't actually take away from our appreciation of movies by knowing that if anything, it makes us appreciate the film for what it is even more. And so my goal was not to split my audience, I think some might look at it as not the wisest choice of extending into like too many niches or too many things. But I've always also had a dream of creating a network in a world built around When Walls Can Talk. I've always been so inspired by like the Morbid Network, which is now on Wondery and all of the shows that are kind of morbid. And I'm a bit of a dreamer and a bit of a masochist. So I basically just said, why can't I create that space on my own? Why can't I create that orbiting my main show and create socials and Patreon and email marketing and online courses and ebooks that support and speak to the varied interests of my listener the way that I have varied interests. And yes, that person might be very specific. But I also think it's really important to have an avatar that's very specific, because there will be something in my space that caters to a lot of people, even if it doesn't cater to all of their interests. I think one lesson that I learned from the very beginning is at the first season of When Walls Can Talk, I had this vision of doing true crime paranormal stories, collective tarot readings and tarot analysis, interview witchcraft or experts. spirituality And I very quickly realized that throwing all of that content at my listener was very disconcerting in the sense that they didn't know what to expect from me. And so the people who came for the stories were like, don't particularly care about this tarot episode or the tarot listeners were like, I'm kind of just hanging out waiting for the next one of those. And so distilling When Walls Can Talk down to focusing on these production episodes and finding new homes for some of that other content has really helped my listenership grow.
A highlight from Wives Takeover Special: Crystal & Krista in the Drivers Seat
"Fish on! Hey, Radcast is on! And welcome to the show, Mr. Jim Zumbo. Gentlemen, I am pleased to be here and I use that term loosely when I say gentlemen. Al Winder. Just want to welcome you to the show. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to hang out with us on a podcast for a little bit. I am looking forward to it. Nothing makes me happier than to be clocking the box. Hailing from Wisconsin, Janna Waller. Thanks so much for having me. It's Radcast. Hunting, fishing, and everything in between. Powered by Bowspider. Brought to you by PK Lures and High Mountain Seasonings. And now here's your hosts, Patrick Edwards and David Merrill. Today is a very special episode of Radcast Outdoors because we've kicked the guys out of the studio. We are the wives of the Radcast Outdoors hosts. I am Crystal Merrill. And I'm Krista Edwards. And we are here because we're going to talk about what it's like to be married to someone who is quite literally obsessed with the great outdoors. So the guys are definitely in trouble. Yeah, that's right. We are going to have a good time. We're good. We kicked them out. No boys allowed. And just dive into what it's like to be married and have kids with an outdoors enthusiast. That's obsessed. Yeah. As we know, our husbands love hunting and fishing. David is a hunter and Patrick is a little bit more of a fisherman. So tell me about your experience in the outdoors, Krista. So I was raised down in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and I was my dad's fishing buddy as a kid. We would go fishing just at the lakes that are close by. So the Curt Gowdy State Park lakes, he would take us trout fishing. And then as I got a little older, we would go camping with my grandparents on their pop -up camper trailer. I love doing that. My grandpa, I remember, took us to Hog Park and the Miracle Mile and we got to do some fishing there. I've always liked being outside. I've never been an enthusiast of any sorts or anything, but I've always enjoyed being outside hunting, just outdoor recreational activities as well. How about you? I have the same experience as a kid. I was immersed in the outdoors. My dad was a trapper and a hunter and a little bit of a fish or two. There's a picture that exists of me in a diaper standing in front of a bunch of skinned raccoons in Oregon. That does exist. But when I was a teenager, shot my first black tail deer in Oregon, which is where I grew up. And then in 2009, my dad invited me over here to Wyoming, which is now where I live and love, to an antelope hunt out here in the middle of near Riverton, Wyoming. We got a nice antelope. My husband and I, David, we both shot antelope that time. And then we decided to go explore our lives and travel around a little bit. But eventually we did end up back here in Wyoming. Awesome. What do you love about Wyoming? Except for last year? I love the climate. Yeah, that was brutal. The negative 50s was a little bit much last winter. But I love the open wide open spaces. I love the people how friendly they are and just kind and wholesome and morals. I just love the people here. Yeah, I agree. I have really just grown to love Wyoming. I love the mountains. I love all the outdoor recreational opportunities. I love that you can make close relationships because our biggest towns are still small ones. So it's a small world. I don't ever imagine living anywhere else. We love Wyoming. How about you tell me how you met David and how your relationship came to be? We both grew up in Oregon. We actually met in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon. I was a Forest Protection Officer working for the Forest Service. And there's this little mountain house store in the middle of nowhere. And so I would stop in there and I'd get like candy or soda or something on my way. And David was actually a cook there and friends with the owners. He didn't have enough gump to introduce himself to me. So the owner of the store, because David and I were like 17 and 19. When we met, the owner of the store forcibly introduced us and basically told us we were going on a date. And so I think the next day I drove up to the mountain house after work and we watched a movie and talked all night. And that's the history of David and Crystal. The rest is history as they say, right? How about you guys? How did you and Patrick meet? I think we met a couple of times before we actually I don't know. Patrick says that we've met we had met previously, but we actually graduated high school together. We're in the same graduating class. I have vague memories of him there. But we officially started we're introduced by a mutual friend when we were in college down in Cheyenne at the community college down there. One of the new weeks of school, he was standing in line waiting for food. And we because we had been introduced, we started a conversation. He let me cut in line with him for food. We had lunch that day and just started talking and getting to know each other. And like he said, rest is history. We were also young. We were both 19 when we started dating when we first met. We've been married 17 years now. And we have four children, which Patrick has mentioned on the podcast before. Leah, our faith, who is 10. And Benjamin, who is nine, I have to think about that sometimes because they're, they stair step down. How about you? How long have you and David been married? So we've been married 17 years as well. We both I think we both got married in 2006. Didn't we? Yep. Okay. So yeah, we got married in 2006 in Oregon. And yeah, that's the rest of history. So when you first met Patrick, did you really know how obsessed he was with fishing? Because we lived in Cheyenne, I don't know what his passion was when it came to fishing. The opportunities in the Cheyenne area are much less than it is up here in Riverton. And his grandma lived in Riverton. And so when we were first dating, he would come up and visit her, but I didn't always come. So he would fish when he came up here. And then when I would come and visit, we would go fishing. But because it was so sporadic, I didn't realize just what the full depth of the obsession of the hobby, the passion was at that time. So no, I didn't realize when we were married for a few years in 2008, we moved up to Riverton for the first time to help with with his grandma and to help care for her. And it was then a couple years into our marriage that I fully got a full view of how much he really loved it because he had the proximity of Boysen and the ability to go more often. So those I would consider some of our harder years of marriage as we were figuring this out being newlyweds, and also him having these opportunities to go and fish and want to do both be a good husband and stay home but also pursue his hobbies and his passion. So it was then that I really got a full grasp on that. What have you done throughout the years as you've adjusted to being married and realizing how much he loves fishing? What do you guys do together? Do you guys go fishing together a lot now? Is it a family thing? What's the favorite part of being a wife of a husband who just loves the outdoors and has a passion for it? In the beginning, before we had kids, I would go fishing with him sometimes. I will say when we first were married, and I realized that it was difficult, it did create some fights. And we have some fights early on that are in the history books that we can laugh about now today. But as our family has grown when we had kids, it was a great way for us to get outside as a family. And he loves sharing his passion of fishing with children, whether it's our own or anybody else's, he loves teaching people how to fish. So it's been really awesome to see him share that with our family. So we do go as a family and sometimes I don't even fish. I'm just there as referee, making sure that kids aren't dangling up their lines, or I'm helping them pull them out of the water. So bait the hook. Yeah. So he's able to go on a date nights where I just go with him. It's not my passion. I don't mind doing it. I like doing it. But I mainly like spending the time with him. It's really fun to be able to go do something with him that he enjoys so much. And I know that it fills his bucket fills his love tank, whatever you want to call it to be able to do something he enjoys, and to be able to share that with me and with our children. So we do as a family, sometimes it actually has worked out now that our kids are older, that he'll take a couple and leave a couple home with me and he'll take a couple and so that's actually been a really special thing. It gives him the opportunity to spend one on one time or two on one time with with our kids when you have a big family. Sometimes that gets hard with busy schedules and stuff. I don't always go but I've got to a point now in our marriage where I am supportive of him going. I'm to the point now where I recognize the need for him to go when life has been really crazy and he's been really busy or things that work have been really stressful. I can see it and I will encourage him to go where in our early years of marriage when it was just the two of us and we didn't have kids that would not have been the case. I did not want him to go and leave me home alone. But now I say, I see that there's, you're stressed, you should go for half a day or whatever. Because I know that it just helps to renew him and refresh him. And then when he comes home, he's just able to be more present and attentive to our family. And he's just more at peace. So gotta be the support system for the family. And that doesn't mean you always go on these trips. But it looks different. Maybe it means that you cook the fish that he brings home for all the things for the with fish. I cook don't get me wrong. I do cook but he cooks and cleans. There is a learning curve when it comes to cooking fish. We like to cook together. And but he just is really good at fish specifically. I've done a few things and we usually do it together. But yeah, no, when it comes to fishing, he likes doing it all. He loves the catching. He I don't know if he loves the cleaning, but he does the cleaning and then he helps the cooking as well. It's, it's been great. It's been a great way to enjoy it as a family. How about you do fish or hunt with David? Do you guys so we do as a family? Yeah, we do a little bit of everything. Since I've had kids, I have three kids, the youngest is nine months. And so I don't get out as much as I would like. A couple of years ago, we ended up going over by Cody and I got an elk tag and actually harvested a very nice bowl, my first bull elk ever. We dropped the kids off with grandma and we went over there in the winter and harvested a nice bowl. It was awesome. It was nice to get away and do the things as a couple. Now that we have a bigger family, and it's a little bit harder to get out, get everybody ready. Because as a mom, we know that we get everybody ready, we get all the snacks, we get all the clothes, warm and hot and clothes and everything you need to get ready for a trip. It's a lot. It takes a lot more time to prep and prepare. And it's just a lot of effort when you have the kids. But as far as hunting and fishing, I really do enjoy the time. It brings me closer to God. Honestly, the silence, getting away from all the electronics, just the peace of being out in nature is awesome. And I would love to do it more. But I just have to wait till my kids get a little bit older to make it a little easier on everybody. Right. Absolutely. I feel that connection with the Lord as well being out in nature. And then also, just with my husband, the connection there. I don't know how David is. But I can tell you, like when when I went fishing with Patrick, just the two of us, we went a couple of years ago to Keyhole for an anniversary trip. And he was more excited to see me catch fish than than him catching fish. He was going for a trophy. And sometimes I would just read a book while he was trying. But when we started catching crappie and stuff, he would get so excited. And I imagine David's reaction to you getting a big elk was probably the same. And it's just a really special connection that you can have when they they share their love for that. And then it makes when they see somebody that they love, yes, pursuing what they let's just it. It's a cool way to bond. Yes, it is. I will agree. He was actually there with me when I shot my first black tail deer to we were tree stand hunting behind my house and I was climbing up in the tree and he was going to climb up behind me but the deer is already there. Oh, I know eating some apples from the orchard. And so he's standing down there at the bottom of the tree. And of course, I was waiting to get a good rest. I wasn't going to make a poor shot on my first year. I was very patient. The deal wasn't going anywhere. I had plenty of apples. So I was taking my time to get a good shot made a great shot. It was awesome experience for us to just instill that as a new couple and I wish that more couples would get out and do these things together even if you don't necessarily enjoy the sport. Just supporting your spouse. It's a great way to support your spouse just going, doing whatever you can to support them in their passions. Absolutely. When we were dating, it used to be the joke that I would always outfish Patrick whenever we would go fishing when we were dating and first married and I would tease that's why he didn't take me because I would always outfish him. But the real reason why I'd outfish him is because he would set me up in order to catch catch fish. I know this now. Yeah, back then I would tease that I had better skill. I meant that I was doing a better job. But really, he lovingly set me up in a way that I would I'm gonna give you a better lure or a better bait. Yeah, whatever. Yeah. In order for me to have success because then you have fun doing it together like that. Do you have any specific outdoor memories of your family from your childhood or any memories that are your favorite from being in the outdoors with your family? From my growing up years, one of my favorite outdoor memories was a camping trip that I went on with my grandparents and my uncle. My mom is 17 years older than her youngest brother. So my uncle is only like eight years older than I am. We got to do things with him similar to what you would with like a cousin because of the age difference there. We went and I believe it was down by Miracle Mile in a hog park and camped outside. I'd never slept outside open air, no tent, no camper. And he rolled out the sleeping bag like he was going to sleep outside. And I thought that was the coolest thing. So I slept outside open air next to the lake that we were at with my uncle. And so that was really special. I probably was 11 or 12. I don't even remember how old I was. But it's still a memory that sticks with me. And you didn't get carried away by the mosquitoes. Not that I remember. And I remember that was my first wallet I had ever caught. It was on that trip. I had never caught a wallet before. So that was really cool. And then my family. Oh, so many memories as a family with kids now with Patrick and our family, our younger kids. But one of them that I really love was our first camping trip after Katie was born. So Katie's my second. And Leah would have been a year and a half, two years old. Katie was five weeks old, sitting in a tent, nursing my five week old baby while camping. And this trip was so hectic. We got lost on our way. When we got to the lake, Patrick started catching fish immediately. It was like some of the best fishing he'd ever been to. We went to, I can't remember what it's called, a lake in Nebraska. And when we woke up the next day, we camped one whole night, the whole tent set up, the stress of we had to go home. So it was like less than a 24 hour trip. It was so stressful. And looking on it now, it's not a favorite. If you think, that was a wreck. We were a mess. But at the same time, it was just the beginning of we're just going to go no matter how hard this is, we're going to try anyways. And so that was a jumping off point for us on just family camping trips. And we've done many more, always having good parts and always having stressful parts like using the set up, the extra packing with kids and whatnot. So sleeping out under the stars really reminds me of a funny story from David and I when we were first dating, I was, you know, working for the Forest Service. So I was supposed to know all these different trails and everything and be able to read a map. Well, Crystal forgot the map, we were going to go to Danica Lake in Oregon. It's beautiful. I've been there. I hiked in there for my work. And I was going to take David in there, we're going to go fishing. It took a wrong turn on the trail. And we ended up not going into the wilderness, but staying near like a logging trail. And we came out to a place where I knew I was familiar with it was, we had hiked probably 10 miles that day, Danica Lake was not a 10 mile hike. And we get to a place and we just go to a lake that's right off of the road. It's a gravel road, but it's right off the road. And we were just gonna sleep out underneath the stars, we put a tarp down, had our sleeping bags, and we went to sleep woke up the next morning. And David says, I hear something scratching. Oh my goodness. So we look around us. And because we laid out our stuff almost in dark, we laid our tarp down on top of an ants nests or high ant flow area. And they weren't the small ants. These are the big ants. So he now has an ant in his ear. And we are probably two hours from any hospital or anything. Oh my goodness is before I'm a nurse. So I didn't know what to do. I've never had this encounter before. So we were, he was freaking out because something was in his head, scratching. And he's not a calm person around this kind of things. Anyways, I come up with this idea to drop some water into his ear to flood the ant out. And luckily it worked. But to this day, I will never live down the fact that we never made it to Danica Lake. Oh, you never went back? Never made it. Oh, bummer. So it's always this story of if Crystal plans a trip, are we really gonna make it to Danica Lake? Or are we gonna make it somewhere else? You just never know. And then as far as outdoor stories with my family, one of my favorite memories is when I harvested a moose here in Wyoming in 2017. We didn't know the area. So we were just hiking around and we came across a bull moose that was shootable. And the awesome thing was, my oldest son Hunter was probably three or four at the time. And he was on the shoulders of David. David was carrying him when I shot my moose. Oh, cool. So we had this experience together. My father in law was there too. We shot this moose and my son was able to be a part of that experience. And not that he is super enthusiastic about hunting yet. He's 10. And so he's interested in video games and other things like that. But it's a great family memory for us to remember. And then with my middle child, Drake, my dad took me out around Riverton to get an antelope and antelope buck because I for some reason when we first moved here, I drew antelope buck tags almost every year. Nice. Nobody else did. I don't know. So I got to spend that time with the Drake as well when I was harvesting that antelope buck and there's pictures of him sitting on my lap with the antelope and we harvested it together. We butchered it together at home. We do actually most of our own butchering and processing of our meats. That's great. And I think Patrick does the same, doesn't he? With his fish and whatever. Absolutely. Yeah. And the kids, it's a great way to teach them. It's one of those things that kind of get lost in our culture. I feel like today where a lot of kids and I'm not saying necessarily Wyoming kids because we live in a state where it's a little unique, but a lot of times kids don't know where their food comes from. And so whether it is game, wild game and fish, or it's things like poultry and pork and beef, we both have chickens on our properties and we raise pigs. And I know that you guys have done so in the past before. It's just such a good experience for kids to see the whole process. It's not just I went to the store and bought the ass. We went, when you hunt, you harvest it as well as bring it home, clean it, cook it, and then eat it. Same when you raise your own animals or eggs or whatever. It's just good for kids to know that it's not just go to the grocery store, that there is work involved, that it's not actually that easy. And it just brings a greater appreciation for your food as well as for the people who do, our farmers and our ranchers, who raise the food that we eat. And the quality of your food. Absolutely. That's what I love about processing my own game is you can be super fine with how you butcher it. You can be selective with the meats and you can, we do a lot of hamburger. It's not hamburger, it's elk burger, venison burger. Right. We treat it like hamburger and it tastes delicious and we love it and my kids love it and all of these different recipes that we have that we use with wild game because it cooks differently. Absolutely. You can't just cook elk like you can a normal beef steak. It takes a little more love and tenderness for sure. So talking about our kids and getting them involved. So you have three boys, 10, four and nine months, right? Yes. So with your kids, what have you found to be ways to get them outdoors? Because it is extra work, you do have to prepare. You're not just thinking about going to and hunting or going to the lake and fishing. You have to think about all their needs and all the things that you might need for the day to keep them occupied or whatever. So what kinds of tips and things have you found that help? And then also, how have you been motivated to make sure you get your kids outdoors because it is extra work? So how have you motivated yourself to continue doing the work to get them there? So some of the things that I have found that works for my kids to keep them, for lack of a better word, entertained during hunting because it's not always entertaining. They can play with sticks and rocks but they do eventually get bored and then they do eventually get hungry and or cold or hot. So you have to plan for those things because you want for kids the experience to be a positive one. You don't want them to look back and say, oh, I was so cold or I was so hungry and mom and dad didn't have any snacks for me. So you got to plan for those things. Sometimes you do better than others. As far as what I do to the effort, it is important to put that effort out. Yes, it is time consuming but I know it's good for their soul. It's good for my soul to get out even if we just go to Ocean Lake or Morton Lake for the evening and go fishing. It's beautiful to get sit on the beach, listen to the waves come in. It's therapeutic for everybody and it helps everybody's mental health. We just love taking those opportunities to do those small things and I know you do the same thing with your family as well. We do and I always tease that I could be talked out of it every single time. Easily. Yes, especially like the first camping trip of the year when you have to get the camper cleaned and prepped and make sure your supplies are there. Every time we're getting ready to go camping for the first time, I always think we don't have to do this. We can stay home of effort. So much work and so I say that about every trip. You could tell me and say, would you rather stay home? I'd probably say yes to you on a heartbeat. So don't offer that as an option because otherwise I'll probably take you up on it. It's worth it once you get there. You take all the time to prepare the food and to pack all the clothes and to clean up and get the dogs ready and whatever else it is that you need to do in order to get yourselves there. But once you're there and you're set up and you're in nature and you're able to not worry about all the at -home chores and busyness and schedule and you're just able to soak in whatever it might be, it's so worth it. So it's worth the time. It's worth the effort and start. My tip would be to start young. Don't wait till your kids are old enough to hold the fishing pole or do whatever because if you just make it part of your lifestyle to just go and do and be together as a family, then it will get to a point where your kids will look forward to those times. One of the things I also tease about like where people say camping is relaxing and I'm like you have never gone camping with kids. However, we, my family doesn't have little kids anymore. You guys still have a few, a toddler and a baby. But when we got went camping a couple years ago and our kids range from ages 11 to seven and we were able to go and Pat would go fishing and I got to sit in my chair and talk to my friends or read a book and my kids were running around and playing with their friends and and they were all over the place night. I looked at it and I go, oh we've arrived.
A highlight from How Did I Get Here? (Travis Greene)
"Hey, this is Steven Furtick. I'm the pastor of Elevation Church, and this is our podcast. I wanted to thank you for joining us today. Hope this inspires you. Hope it builds your faith. Hope it gives you perspective to see God is moving in your life. Enjoy the message. Elevation Church, wow, wow, wow. So, first of all, what we're not going to do is act like you don't have the greatest pastor in the world. Come on, can we get real noisy in this building and all around the globe for the Pastor Steven Furtick, Holly, Eliza Graham, Abs, love you. I'm excited to be here. I'm black, and that's just how we're going to start. We're going to start there. My are roots Pentecostal. Pentecostal is like a fraternity or something. They'd be like, that's my dog. It's not a frat, but I was going to use a headset today so I could dribble with my left hand, but I woke up feeling preachy, so I told them, give me a handheld, because we about to go up Elevation. I love Pastor Steven. He is a songwriter. He is an architect, and he is the greatest communicator in the world. To be on his platform is beyond a blessing, but something funny happened to me. I told myself that I would be validated as a good preacher when he invited me. Let me tell you how gracious God is. He refused to allow me to be invited as long as I believed that, because when heaven wants to affirm you, it doesn't use opportunity, it uses opposition. I know you're anointed not by the stages, but by the scars that you got. I need you to high -five your neighbor like you in Ballantyne and tell them, I know I'm anointed. The struggles that you overcome reveal your anointing. We know that the oil on David worked not from the throne he sat on, but by the giant that fell at his feet, and if open doors can make you, then closed doors can break you. Quit waiting on man to validate you. I'm afraid that in our churches, heaven believes in us, and I'm going to tell you something you never heard before, hell believes in you. This is why the devil and all his imps and wimps have been coming against you, because he know how much you carry. He doesn't bother you if you're not a threat, but if the devil has been trying to come against you and your family and your neighborhood, I need you to give God ten seconds of praise like you know no weapon formed against you. Shall prosper. Come on, praise him like you're an overcomer. Praise him like the battle's already over. I'm not praising him for a victory. I'm praising him from a place of victory. In Jesus' name. In Jesus' name. And so I have a very prophetic word for elevation. It's really for the Columbia campus. Because they up the street from me. But if the shoe fit, you can wear it in here or Orlando or Greenville or wherever you're watching from. I told them to send me a list. It was too long. What y 'all do have is some campuses. My God. We're going to be in Mark, and it's my custom to share the title after I read the scripture, but today I'm going to share it before. I believe God is about to bring your name up. I don't know how it happened for me. I was minding my business, and chumps texted me and said, are you available? And I'm wondering, how did my name get brought up? God's about to bring your name up. Because this is the season, hear me, that God ain't looking for gifts. I got degrees, but I'm going to talk how I want to talk. God ain't looking for gifts. He's after hearts. There's so many people that can sing, man. We don't need another song. We need hearts like Chris and hearts like Jen and hearts like John. Man, we need hearts. God's about to bring your name up. Here's the title for today. How did I get here? How did I get here? Let me preach because my wife told me I take too long to transition. I'm not going to show a family picture. They're all on the ground, but my wife is a dying piece on the front row. I love you. Mark 10, 46. Then they came to Jericho. I teach at Ford City that you can't just read the Bible. Oh, snap, you've got to read the Bible. It's the second read. Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with the large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus, which means son of Timaeus, was sitting on the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me. Many rebuked him. Don't you hate when you're sitting next to the loud one? You're like, okay, I get it. You grateful. I am too, but my God. They told him, be quiet, fam. Jesus. You ever brought your mama to church? I said, mama, I'm preaching at Elevation. Do not come. My mom be tearing the whole row up in the back. I said, be quiet, man. But he shouted all the more. I love that. Son of David, have mercy on me. I really want to preach this next verse, but I got something else to preach. But the next verse says, Jesus, stop. Whoo. There is a DB, if you're into audio. There is a frequency. There is a shout that is packed with enough desperation to get a busy Jesus, a focused Jesus to stop. Oh my God. Are there any praises in the room that know how to get him to stop by? Come on, the only reason I'm in church today is because he stopped by. The only reason I'm in my right mind is because he stopped. The only reason I didn't cut somebody this week is because he stopped by. He stopped by, he stopped by, he stopped by. When he stops, anything is possible. Who am I to deny what the Lord can do? Whatever's impossible for you is easy for him when he stops by. All right, let's keep reading. You ready to sit down. He stopped by and said, call him. I like that. So they called the blind man. Cheer up! On your feet, he's calling you. Now the way my imagination works, I wonder if these are the same people who just told him to hush. That's why you can't listen to people. One second they saying hush, next second they saying cheer up! Cuz, what do you want from me, dog? I mean, throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet, came to Jesus. Here's Jesus. Jesus is really funny. He said, hey, what do you want me to do for you? Blind man's like, ah, let me see. He said, Rabbi, I wanna see, man. I like this. Go, Jesus said. has Your faith healed you. Your shout has healed you. Your resilience has healed you. Somebody, it took your last 20 to get to church today. That's the thing that healed you. The fact that you believed in spite of what you were facing. And the Bible says, I like this word, immediately. I feel it coming, all of a sudden. Immediately. This ain't for everybody. This is just for 50 people and a two year old that can give them a praise and say, that thing about to happen quicker than you can even imagine, immediately. Immediately. He received his sight, followed Jesus along the road. How did I get here? Lord Jesus, I'm gonna pray a prayer. You ready? How did we get here? Amen. You can take your seats. All right, how did I get here? How did I get here? How did I get here? This past week, I went to North Myrtle Beach. That's where my dad is buried, where my mom is from. And we went there to visit my grandma. My grandma is 92 years old. Yeah, yeah. Her classmate was Harriet Tubman. My grandma is so old. She's seen many presidents. And I walk in and my grandma, she's like Isaac. Her sight is fell on her because she's up in age. And she's sitting there with her snuff. You're not from the country if you don't know what snuff is. No teeth, but snuff. I say, my grandma had 14 kids, y 'all. After 10, you don't even feel them no more. There's another child. They just, she got 14 over 40 grandkids. And I walk in and I'm like, grandma. And she's like, whoa, who's that? Get over here. And I go over to her and I say, grandma, it's me. And I can't talk, y 'all. I got speech impediment if you laugh. You laughed and that was not a joke. She's like, ah, I thought it was just me. And my speech marks me. So my grandma, she knew it. And she was like, try this. That's you. I spent some time with her. Something about when your sight is felling, your senses are heightened. And what's interesting about this text, I learned this from Pastor Furtick. You preach every line in the text. So the first thing I want to acknowledge in this text is that the blind man is in Jericho. The word Jericho means fragrance or to smell. Isn't it interesting that he's blind, but he can still smell the roses? So I want to tell you, don't allow your low place that calls you to miss the beauty of the season you're in. He's in Jericho. This is not a mountaintop message. Because most of the people who are asking, how did I get here, aren't on top. You feel like you're at the bottom. You're asking, how did this happen to me? How did I get here? My last great memory was a wedding photo and now I'm a widow. That was my mom at the age of 29 when my dad died on a Sunday morning. I was five years old. How did I get here? How did I get in the back of this police car? How did I get in divorce court? Come on, y 'all, don't look at me in that tone of voice. How did I get here? My life was heading in one direction and then one decision, one thing caused me to get into an uncertain, unfamiliar, and unexpected place. How did I get here? How did I get here? How did I get addicted? How did this happen to my child? How did I get here? And you may think, you may be sitting here thinking like, man, my situation's rough. Listen to me, your situation cannot compare to being blind in the first century.
A highlight from Interest Rate Hikes FINISHED?! (Crypto War NOT Over)
"Welcome to Discover Crypto! It is September 20th. It's 11 .30am. How are we all doing? We got Drew and AJ on the ones and twos today, folks. We're going to talk about the Fed. We're going to talk about what are they going to be saying with the interest rate hikes. And also we're going to be talking about Bitcoin and other cryptos. AJ, how are you doing today? I'm doing great, man. Another day in the life. Let's get it. Drew, how are you doing? Oh, just great. You know, can't complain. Well, you can. You can. You complain when you get home. You'd like, you know, just really vent to your two -year -old. Yeah, that's where I do it. Deezy, did you see the tweet that went out yesterday about the show I'm doing with from George from Cryptos R Us? What? Yeah, yeah. Yeah, he's with Blockchain Boy and Neutron. Joshua Jay. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah. So we're all like, it's for crew, like, plus, you know, and basically we're all doing something different. I believe, like, Josh is doing like a news kind of show and Blockchain Boys. I'm not really sure what Blockchain Boys doing, but I know the videos are going to start coming out here pretty soon. We're still like brainstorming my concept, but I have a really good, like, rough idea of what I'm doing. But it's going to be really interesting to see how, like, where this goes. And I'm just fun to excited to do something different, you know? And I'm excited. We got Frankie Candles doing the charts today. I see Frankie getting ready in his neon square. He's in his, like, little neon area. I don't know if, oh, he can hear me. He's showing some recognition and anticipation of what Deezy is going to say next. Yeah, we saw the Donald Trump Jr. tweets. It looks like he got hacked. Also, Rob, you're popping it. Hey, we're going to see you back. Can't wait till you come back. All right, let's just get right into crypto. Marc Kepson's Drew is done. Am I too tall? Am I too tall? Too tall for the camera? Look, I got to stand. I got to do these shows a lot, you know? I take the shoes off. So I shrink, you know? They come in. I'm like 6 '11", and I take the shoes off. Then I drop back down to 6 '3". I got the Tom Cruise lifts. All right, Bitcoin is falling a little bit, folks. We were in the green this morning when I first woke up. Now we are down 0 .6%, and Ethereum is down 1 .3%. But XRP looks pretty good. XRP is up. It is up 0 .8 % on the day so far. Meanwhile, Cardano, I woke up this morning. It was up, but now it's down. It is down 0 .7%. Dogecoin down 1 .3%. TonCoin finally cooling off a little bit for the week here. It is down 1 .2%. Litecoin has taken a little bit of a beating, folks. Litecoin is down 5%. We talked about Litecoin a little bit yesterday on ATB. I highly recommend you check that out after this stream. All right, let's look at the top gainers. Then we're going to look at the top losers. You know, I have a streak of keeping my coins in the losers, but not today, folks. I'm feeling good. In fact, maybe I'll have a coin in the top 10. Who knows? All right, here we have Caspa leading the way. Caspa is just on fire, folks. The people who bought Caspa at $0 .01, $0 .02, looking good. Just put in a higher high too. You got past that last one, yep. All right, we are now above a nickel, and it looks like maybe price discovery mode for a Caspa. XDC is up 4 .3%. Maker is up. Radix is up. Aave is up. I have a coin in the ties. A little Solana. I think maybe I have some Arbitrum. Maybe. I'm not even sure I have to check. Then we have, you know, XRP is up 0 .8%. We got gold. Gold's moving to the upside. The graph moving to the upside, even though Bitcoin and ETH are down. Okay, so it's not all blood in the streets, but hopefully, it's not going to be blood in Deasy's wallet, guys. And again, I promise you, I do not check this ahead of time. I kind of like being surprised. I like discovering it with you. So let's discover cryptos, Deasy's coins in here. I'm looking good today. All right, I don't know how long the streak has been continuing. I don't know when's the last. I think I last held Litecoin in 2021. Never had Thor, Phrax, eCash, or I know Frankie likes to trade Adam. I like to trade Eve. So maybe we'll talk to him about the Adam is falling 4 % here. Litecoin down 5%. Thor chained down 5%. Any of these coins, you know, peak it. Well, if you go at it, I do have two in the top 10. I got two in the top 10. Just, you know, just to make it feel good. But any of these screaming at you here? Yeah, Thor, Litecoin, Phrax. Not surprised really to see. I mean, everything kind of came up yesterday. I'm still kind of sticking to the theory that the pump we're seeing could possibly be a bull trap. I think, you know, when we get into the FOMC news, the pauses that is likely coming is going to be bullish for the sentiment. I'm just still like kind of macro worried based off of the stock market sharks. Actually, the Algorand, you know, down 2 .8%. That one's kind of obviously yelling at me a little bit. I have a theory coming up, but I'm not going to say it right now. But I'm making a video about it, about Algorand. So stay tuned for that. OK, so you're going to create more? I'm going to create more. I create more crypto content every day and some of it's about Algorand. But I like how it's a period. Create more. No exclamation point. Just create. It's more like create more. Oh, OK. Great. More. Great. Great. Yeah. All right. Well, we're going to create some stories here about the feds. What are they doing? I don't know if we've ever had an article from this news organization. ABC. Shout out to Mickey Mouse and the Disney crew here. Fed to decide on a rate hike. Testing optimism about a soft landing as inflation rises again. Upon announcing the Fed Reserve's latest rate hike decision in July, Jerome Powell spoke out a lectern in Washington, DC for a half hour before he dropped a bombshell. The Central Bank staff has abandoned its forecast of a recession. Staff at the Fed, in other words, now expect the Central Bank to achieve a soft landing, an outcome in which the US brings down inflation while avoiding a downturn. Inflation has ticked up for two consecutive months, reversing some of the progress made in the effort to bring price increases down to normal levels. Meanwhile, oil prices have soared, threatening to push inflation even higher. Well, they got like moving ads. Whoa, whoa, what's going on here? Calm down, ABC. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg expect the Fed to leave its benchmark interest rate unchanged, affording policymakers time to weigh their next move as a rapid series of previous rate hikes take full effect. I was looking at Caleb Franzen's tweets. We're at 99 % on the prediction market unchanged today, right? Have you been looking at the, when is the next one? Is it November? I can pull the calendar. I'm pretty sure it's the end of October. I think it's like maybe on Halloween. Let me double check. Oh, on Halloween is going to be spooky. Okay, Drew, are you going to give out candy this Halloween? Absolutely. You know, but actually I'll be doing candied apples. Okay, I'm going to be giving out pamphlets on inflation to children. Yeah, you know, you could have got Reese's pieces, but blame Jerome Powell. You can take advantage of the time and the season to teach your children about tax. Tax them. Like attacking kids for their pillowcases of candy? Taxing them heavily. Yeah, take 33 % of every Snickers bar they get. That's right. Yeah, that's just the way it is. Why wait? Welcome to America, you know? And yeah, the next FOMC is October 31st, November 1st, so. Okay, okay. October 31st. All right, all right. Halloween, what's Jerome Powell going to dress up as? Alex from A Clockwork Orange. Pat, do you want us to dress up on the channel? I might be willing to dress up in a costume. I might be willing. You know, every - I could break out the green spandex, go old school. You know, every Halloween, AJ disappears and a Mr. Meeseeks just shows up. Okay, I heard existence is pain though. Existence is pain. We're not fumbling around for meaning here, Deezy. All right. Well, I'm fumbling around for this rate of inflation. It eases slightly 6 .7 % despite the oil prices surging. You know, like we said, I think the oil is going to be a leading indicator, so inflation will trickle down from the oil prices. If you want to think about it, it's going to cost more money to get those bananas to drive from point A to point B because they're going to have to spend more in the gas tank. This is going to be - It's just give it a while, let it roll out to the rest of the economy. Namely, food. Oil prices really, really like to impact food prices a couple months down the line. Well, we're looking at the ONS as the Office for National Statistics, and they said the consumer price index measure slowed in the 12 months to August from the 6 .8 figure reported the previous month thanks to food rising at a weaker pace during the month compared to August 22. During the X minute, I have a tweet about Canadian food prices, and I just kind of look at where they've gone over the past 20 years. It is shocking. It is shocking. I used Bard. I was like, this doesn't feel right for the price. I went to a Canadian grocery store, and I went low. I went low. There's expensive eggs and cheap eggs. I typed in the cheap egg price. It was still very scary. All right, well, we have predictions. Jerome Powell's got his ideas. You notice I was thinking about this BlackRock. What is BlackRock thinking about all this? BlackRock and others predict the Fed's next move. What does it mean for Bitcoin though? According to Marilyn Watson, is a BlackRock's head of global fundamental income strategy. The central bank's federal funds target rate will remain roughly the same until the end of the year going through its September, November, and December meetings. For the record, I think the economic data has consistently surprised to the upside, she said. That includes GDP, the unemployment rate, and the labor market. Beware, beware of recession. The analyst has previously argued that Bitcoin's price is macroeconomic determined by conditions, including its four -year cycles, which I am still a firm believer in for this cycle. Might be less of an effect of the previous one, but I'm still a believer in the four -year cycle, going to push Bitcoin to the new high. I do think we'll set in a new all -time high. I don't think we're going to hit a quarter million dollars in two years, but I think we're going to flirt with $100K, which they do not believe are related to the Bitcoin halving. So they're saying the four -year cycle is not related. I don't know what they're saying here. Risk assets go lower in recessions. So I'd expect Bitcoin would not perform well in that environment. It has not seen a real recession in its existence. It was birthed out of a recession, but yeah, hasn't really gone through one from the beginning stages to the end there. Yeah, there's never been a Bitcoin bull run during a phase of quantitative tightening. We've always been quantitatively easing the money supply anytime Bitcoin goes up into the right. And that obviously is what it takes. I think they're kind of leaning into if we're in a recession, and that lines up with the four -year cycle. But just so far, we're three for three with the having idea playing out. And the trend hasn't broken yet, so that's why I always say sticking to November 25 as a benchmark, but that's just a benchmark. It could be behind that. It could be in front of that. We don't have a crystal ball, but we can go off the pattern that we've seen before. All right. Well, speaking of quantitative tightening, we also have calfskin tightening, the tightest calfskin in the entire world. I don't care if you have a baby cow jacket for an extra small on an 800 -pound man, there is no tighter calfskin than the man I'm looking at right now. That is Frankie Candles. Frankie Candles, welcome back. How's it doing? Does it feel good? It feels good. The calfskin is tight, and so is Bitcoin's price action. But yeah, I don't want to waste time here. Let's go ahead and jump right into the charts here. Now, here we are. Now, obviously, I talk about this all the time. I don't typically trade on newsdays like this. It is usually a complete washing machine. Usually the shorts get wrecked, then the longs get wrecked, or the longs get wrecked, and then the shorts get wrecked. So I don't typically trade. Now, I am in a few trades right now. I am in this Bitcoin long right now. I have profits locked in on this trade and my stop loss is at my entry. So kind of how I am playing this today is I'm going to be holding my long. I am long from about $25 ,000 to $50 ,000 just below this range. And again, I have taken profits on that stop loss at break even. And then I am also in a short position from somewhere up here. I am slightly in profit on the short position. So I am long up and now I am in this small short position that is in slight profit. However, this is kind of how I'm playing this today, DZ. Because basically, like I said, I never recommend people trade on these newsdays just because of the complete unpredictable volatility that you're likely to see. Now, the last FOMC meeting, I believe, was on the 25th, 26th of July. I believe someone could correct me if I'm wrong on that. But we actually have seen a few FOMC meetings where we didn't really have too much happen. And I've been telling people that we are likely in that kind of boring accumulation phase of the bear market. A lot of times, if you go back to at least the 2017 or 2018, 2019 bear market, we had that bear market rally. And once we topped off at that point, we kind of just bled out. And for the most part, if you kind of just ignore this panic wick from March of 2020, which was obviously a Black Swan event, we kind of just wiggled sideways. We got that big bear market rally, we topped off, bled out a little bit, and then we just kind of went sideways again with the exception of that panic wick. And I do think we are in somewhat of a similar situation here where the rest of this bear market may not be the most exciting thing ever. But for today, basically how I'm handling this, DZ, is I'm going to be kind of...
Meet New Chicago Fire Wife Krista Harkin: Navigating the Ups and Downs
"We are talking to a newer firewife, Krista Harkin. Krista is a mother of two, a proud firewife and a powerhouse in Chicago's real estate scene. She leads one of the city's top real estate teams. Krista's journey into the firefighting lifestyle is a relatively recent one, but it didn't take long for her to grasp the profound reality of what it means to be married to a firefighter. Shortly after her husband graduated from the Chicago Fire Academy, his engine company faced the heart wrenching loss of one of their own in the line of duty. It was a life altering experience that left a lasting impact on their family. But the challenges didn't stop there. Just months later, Krista's family encountered an unexpected medical emergency that forced her husband into a six month long medical leave. These unforeseen events brought about significant changes in both her work and family life. However, they also offered her a unique perspective. Krista now deeply understands the importance of letting go of what cannot be controlled, especially when confronted with the unexpected obstacles that inevitably come with the firefighting life. Krista's journey took an intriguing turn when her husband introduced her to our podcast. Listening to the show, she found comfort in hearing the stories of other women who shared her experiences, assuring her that there is a strong community of support for firefighting families spanning across the nation. Furthermore, Krista gained a newfound appreciation for the vast differences between wildland firefighting and city firefighting. With this fresh perspective and a desire to connect with others who share her journey, Krista is here to share her own story. We believe her experiences and insight resonate deeply with many of our listeners, providing a unique and valuable connection in the world of firefighting and the challenges it brings to families like hers. So without further ado, let's delve into Krista's inspiring journey and the invaluable lessons she's learned along the way. Welcome, Krista. Thank you so much. Thanks for the introduction and for having me. So tell us a little bit more about your family background, how long your firefighter has been with the department. So relatively newer as a fire wife and fire mom. My husband graduated from the academy in 2021. So just about almost going on the fourth year now. And we have two kids ages four and two. So your hubby started in 21 in the middle of pandemic. Yes. Yeah. It was super fun. So it was tough, honestly. I mean, obviously none of us knew how long it was going to last. Chicago was pretty strict with the lockdowns right away. And, you know, in real estate, it was a very busy time, which was great career wise. And also we were adapting to the shifts of everything. So, you know, that was very busy. I was also pregnant and had a two year old. And at that time, let's see, I guess he was in the academy right when COVID hit, so 2020. And then he graduated 2021. So he was gone pretty much every day, going to the academy for 2020 while I was home working with, you know, being pregnant and having our other child. And I was pretty isolated, honestly. We did everything with work via Zoom. And especially with my team, we're very, very connected, almost like a second family. So that was a big emotional switch for me. I'm just a person that needs to be around people. I need to have that connection and a vibe off of other people's energy. So it was tough. It was tough Okay. Tell us what it's like in a big city department, like Chicago Fire. We were just talking about this off the air. Chicago still has the, you know, you have to live within so many miles to actually be in the department, which we don't have that out here. There's no way. It's not possible. So give us like a little breakdown of how Chicago Fire operates. Sure. Yeah. So it's, I mean, it's pretty strict rules. Like when he first got into the academy, there was actually somebody that came out to our house and made sure that we lived in the city grounds, came into our house, looked at everything in our house. It was pretty crazy. I had no idea that that was going to happen. I didn't know what to expect there. And then from there on, it was just pretty much known. And I mean, my husband did give me a heads up on that, but you know, we also never knew when exactly he would get called. I think he signed up for the list maybe like seven years ago or something. And so, you know, part of us were like, well, he might not ever get called because you can't get called past 40 years old. But then he did, he got called right in the start of COVID. And, you know, we just knew from there that he was going to accept it and go through it and graduate and be a firefighter in Chicago. And we were going to have to stay in the city for forever, pretty much. So that was definitely another mind shift for me and something I had to adapt to because I'm from Wisconsin. And I think somewhere in the back of my head, I was like, I think maybe we'll move back to Wisconsin and, you know, be closer and be out of the city life. But, yeah, it's not going to happen.
A highlight from Ep 187: Dont Be a Mission Creep!
"So people who know me well know that I'm a cat person. Throughout my life, I have had beloved cats. I currently have a two -year -old cat. His name is Rafa. Not after the tennis player, but a variation of the Hebrew word rafuah, which means healing. He arrived at 1 .5 pounds during the pandemic when we needed some healing. From Baidawi, a New York City -based, wonderful animal welfare organization. Not long after he arrived, I bought a book on training your cat to do tricks. Come on, it was the pandemic. I was looking for things to occupy myself. Well, turns out I've taught Raf to jump through a hoop. Yes, I bought a hoop. And you can't actually teach a cat to jump through a hoop unless you have a really cool top hat. So I have one of those too. What the heck am I telling you this story for? Because if my friend and former client, CEO of Baidawi, Leslie Granger, decided that she was going to partner with Barnum & Bailey Circus to train rescue animals to be in the circus, that would be like holy smokes nuts. She's supposed to be finding wonderful forever homes for her posse of wonderful animals. A decision like this would be mission creep in addition to holy smokes nuts. And I love Leslie, but if she did this, I would call her a mission creep. She'd laugh. And I'm pretty sure she would agree that she'd gone over the edge. So today we're gonna take this phrase mission creep. We're gonna define it. We're gonna identify its symptoms and its side effects. And I plan to offer you some practical advice of how to prevent it. Greetings and welcome to Nonprofits or Messy. I'm your host, Joan Gary, founder of the Nonprofit Leadership Lab, where we help smaller nonprofits to thrive. I'm also a strategic advisor for executive directors and boards of larger nonprofits. I'm a frequent keynote speaker, a blogger, and an author on all things leadership and management. You can learn more at joangarry .com. I'm a woman with a mission to fuel the leadership of the nonprofits. My goal with each episode is to dig deep into an issue I know that nonprofit leaders are grappling with by finding just the right person to offer you advice and insights. Today, it turns out the right person is me.
A Father's Fight With Harrison Tinsley
"One of the more disturbing trends happening in America is how the courts are either neutral, indifferent, or against reality when it comes to this gender stuff happening in our country. This is a very chilling story. Joining us now is Harrison Tinsley. Harrison, welcome to the program. Thanks for having me, Charlie. So your story is really striking. You have a three and a half year old son. Correct. Born as a biological male. Correct. Your former partner, ex -girlfriend, wants to raise him as non -binary. Is that correct? To the best of my knowledge, yes. And it has started this massive court battle. Tell us about it. Well, so it starts a few years back. I met a girl in the Bay Area. We started dating, we fell in love. We never agreed politically. I always thought, you know, that was something we could get past and just agree to disagree on some things. Unfortunately, the country's become so polarized. I'm not sure you can do that anymore. But shortly into us dating, she became pregnant. And we were both very happy about that, thankfully. And we basically, she suffered with some mental illness problems, like borderline personality disorder. It's like, it's pretty serious. And it was just super up and down relationship. And as her pregnancy went on, she was constantly threatening me that I wouldn't see my son if I wasn't exactly who she wanted me to be, particularly politically. And she would bring up things like, oh, what if our kid's transgender? Why aren't you at the woman's March? Things like that. And it got to a point where she sent me a cease and desist letter. It's about halfway through her pregnancy. So I respected it. And I didn't find out my son was born. I found out about one week after he was born from social media. And it was two months after that I filed in court. It took 13 more. And this is right during COVID. And so I met my son finally when he was 15 months old, even though I was aware the whole time. And then there was this idea of the gender confusion, right? So tell us about that. So it goes on a little bit. I moved to the Bay when half custody, then it's right around the time I went half custody. It's a little bit before he's two years old that she starts, or at least to my knowledge, seeing pictures and stuff, calling him a day, putting dresses on him, makeup on him. There was a time she took him to Disneyland. And my son told me a couple months later, he's like data. When I went to Disneyland, I couldn't go on the rides unless I wore my princess shoes. I didn't want to wear my princess shoes. I wanted to wear boy shoes. I was super heartbreaking, just as one example of the things my son tells me. And so that happens. There's a lot of defamation of me on social media, et cetera. At the same time, I get granted a restraining order on a temporary basis. It's violated. Bring all of this to trial. Get granted a trial by the court, because his mom was also arrested for child endangerment and placed on a 5150 hold while he was in her custody. She ended up getting let off the charges, but she was charged originally. And so I get granted a five -day trial, which is a super long time in family court. Usually you get a lot, you get like 30 minutes. And so we have the trial. I'm super confident about it. There's witnesses, 850 pages of evidence on my side, almost nothing on the other side. And I'm super confident about it. After the trial, about two months later, I get a decision from the court. They decide they're going to keep custody the same. They won't rule on gender. And my son had to continue to see the doctor that the mom preferred. And the doctor was open to the trans thing, right? Yeah. The doctor admitted on the witness stand that she transitions kids as young as 12 at her clinic and that a place down the street does it to kids as young as six.
A highlight from Real Estate Agents Complete Door Knocking Guide (Part 2)
"Welcome to Real Estate Coaching Radio, starring award -winning real estate coaches and number one international bestselling authors, Tim and Julie Harris. This is the number one daily radio show for realtors looking for a no BS, authentic, real time coaching experience. What's really working in today's market, how to generate more leads, make more money and have more time for what you love in your life. And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. Welcome back. Today is part two. We're talking about how to make massive money door knocking. And I realize, as Julie was presenting the theme of this podcast series to me, I was realizing how many of you would just be instantly shutting your brains and minds and frankly, closing your wallets to the opportunities that come from the other side of door knocking. And so what we did in preparation of yesterday's podcast, if you've not listened to it yet, is we actually went in and did a little bit of extra homework and found out all the people who are some of the biggest names in real estate who got their start door knocking, but also who continue to door knock. Now, I actually heard from some of them after yesterday's podcast. And the funny part was that many of them said they did stop door knocking and did stop doing proactively generation. A lot of them were sort of lulled into complacency by doing more proactive. I'm sorry, doing more passively generation, buying business, farming, marketing, branding, that sort of thing. And now they're migrating back towards what originally gave them so much momentum in their real estate careers, which is, of course, doing the proactive lead generation, such as door knocking, making phone calls, being in direct communication with people. That's what a market like this is all about. Isn't that what you want? Don't don't you want somebody to essentially clear the haze and be the the lighthouse through all the fog? Don't you want somebody that's going to tell you the way forward, the way forward without having to, you know, frankly suffer a lot of unnecessary, unforced errors? Of course you do. Well, so do all your friends, your family, so do all your neighbors. That's what you need to be for other people. So if you're feeling fear, if you're feeling a lack of leadership in your life and you're waiting for someone to show up in your life to tell you what to do and show you how to do it so that you can actually progress, you can build momentum during this real estate correction or whatever we're going to be experiencing. Well, you know what? The way for you to feel it is you to be that for other people. If you if you're looking for something, provide that for other people. And then what you'll find is that magically almost you start experiencing that as well. If you're not feeling appreciated, show appreciation to other people. If you're not feeling loved, show love to other people. If you're not feeling heard, listen to other people. It's when we do that, that we actually stop feeling those, you know, the sensations of inadequacy, the feelings of really being irrelevant or being fearful. So just keep all these things in mind. You need to be the leaders in your local market, starting with yourself, frankly, lead yourself first and then scale that out to your family, your neighbors, your friends and your family, and then your general market. And that is the whole point, the point of door knocking. People will remember you forever. I'm going to tell you guys another quick story. I mentioned this gal before, but I am in Julie Knight's opinion, she's legendary. There was this agent is an agent named Lisa McIvergin, and she is a Remax agent and she sold ourselves. I'm frankly not sure if she's retired or not, so I don't know in an area called, what was it called, Granville, Ohio. Yep. And so the story goes, this is before Julie and I are in real estate. The story goes that she was pregnant and noticeably pregnant and she set the goal before her baby was born to go and door knock every single home in Granville. Now, Granville is not that big. No, but that's still a lot of doors. And Granville is very hilly. It is. And houses aren't close to each other. No, it's a major goal. So she was, the story goes, the legend, I should say, of Lisa McIvergin was that she actually accomplished that goal. And Lisa, to this day, I would be shocked if she's not still the number one agent in that marketplace. So I want you to pull these pieces together. Granville is an area that's not new. It's not a new subdivision. It's not, it's an old community in Ohio. It's a college town. It's been there forever. And there were certainly a lot of embedded agents, agents that have been in there for generations, brokers whose dads and grandfathers were real estate brokers in that community. And because Lisa went door to door, introducing herself, doing a lot of things that we're sharing with you guys today, she quickly became the number one agent, listing agent, prominently in that marketplace. She now was a, you know, she's a big broker and the rest of it. And, you know, fast forward, that's still momentum carries through generations. That's what doing the real work of real estate is all about. It's not hiding behind a keyboard. If you're not feeling confident, if you're not feeling frankly enthusiastic right now, it's probably because you subconsciously know you're not doing the real work of real estate. Nothing is going to make you feel better than going and having real conversations that you know are really helping people face to face, you know, voice to voice, do whatever it takes to step away from the keyboard, step away from the passively generation and get out there and get to know people. Look, making phone calls is definitely, definitely more efficient than door knocking. But door knocking is the boost of motivation that most of you need when you are in the action of making the contacts, having the conversations. How are you going to feel better or worse? How are you going to feel when you see yourself doing what you didn't want to do when you didn't want to do at the highest level and you realize you made it through it? You didn't die. You're going to feel, are you going to feel better or worse? You guys get it? That's what this is all about. That's right. It's a great way to build your skill conversation by conversation. So yesterday we talked about in part one what to say, how to say it, how to get started in this. Now you listen to that podcast for part one. This is part two, starting with point number five. Make sure you are also up to date on pertinent real estate facts like the current mortgage interest rate, what's being built around the corner from where you're door knocking and anything specific to the area that people may bring up in conversation. Remember that you can always say, that's a great question. I'm writing it down so I can follow up with you this evening. What's the best number to reach you later today? Now that last bit is a simple two sentence script, which should remove any fear and trepidation of getting yourself into a conversation that you can't get out of or that you have to BS your answer. You have to tap dance. You don't want to do any of that. A lot of you guys don't do the door knocking. Don't do the calls because you live in fear of not knowing what to say next. So this is the most versatile script. One of the best scripts that we have for you in this situation. Again, that's a great question. I'll write it down and follow up with you this evening. What's the best number to reach you later today? Also a great way to get their phone number. That's right. But you could also say, listen, I want to make sure I give you the best information or answer your question correctly. So I'm going to do some real homework on that and I'll get back with you later today. Now there's two different directions that most inexperienced agents will go. Number one, frankly, if they don't have a script as to what to say when asked a question, number one, they're going to avoid doing the work in the first place. And yes, I'm talking about you analyticals because you're going to try to over prepare. You're going to somehow think that you need to have the answers to all questions before actually doing the work. That is a mistake. Or on the other end of the spectrum, you're going to have people that try to BS their answers. In other words, you're going to get a question and you're going to wing the answer. And guess what? The seller is going to know that you're BSing. People can pick that up. Always they can. Yep. But here's the other thing. Who's to say that seller didn't ask you a question that they already knew the answer to just to test you to see if you knew the answer. So when you're faced with a question that you don't know the answer to opposed to letting your ego tell you that you're being judged for not knowing the answer, do the smart professional thing and say, that is a fantastic question. I'm going to make sure I get the correct information for you and I'll let you know, um, what do you say an hour or so I'll give you a call. By the way, what's your phone number? There you are. So point number six, enhance your door knocking by being sure to knock on any homes which have expired in the past several years, not just months, but check years for for sale by owners as well and make the most of your door knocking by starting with those expireds or for sale by owners. Then expand your door knocking route around them. This is a great way to make sure you're super efficient and you know our coaching members who do this. I have lots and lots of stories where they say you're not, it's always starts with, you're not going to believe this. I was door knocking. I hit an expired that was, you know, two years old and they said, you know what? I think maybe we're ready to get it back on the market. Share with me what you can do for us. And the great thing about that is you probably can not just get the price that they expired at a couple of years ago, but possibly even more for them. Now, some of you are going to door knocking your stumble across tenants. That's great as well. You'd be surprised how frequently the tenants actually want to purchase the property that they're renting. They just don't know quite how to approach the owner of the property, or maybe it's being managed through a property management company and they don't know how to go past the property management company and actually make an offer to the seller. You know, who knows? Right? So the moral of the story is have your mind open to all opportunities because opportunities are what you create when you become a very powerful, proactively generator. Exactly. Point number seven, make your door knocking a habit, not a random activity or not an activity that you do only when you're feeling desperate. Yeah, that's right. Don't wait for that to happen. Schedule yourself to prospect the same neighborhood every month and track how many homes you're knocking on. If the neighborhood has 200 homes, knocking 10 per day for 20 working days will actually have you meet everyone every month. For example, if you can door knock 20 per day, you'll be even more efficient and could speak with everyone twice per month. Keep in mind that the most successful door knockers have multiple neighborhoods or buildings that they work consistently. You do not have to live in those neighborhoods you knock, but starting with your own community is a good place to get out the door because you probably know your neighborhood best. But the point here is to be super consistent and then once you've gotten used to it, you can expand neighborhoods, buildings, et cetera. Now the funnel, if you will, for making this work is that when you make contact with someone at their door, you obviously then can put that in your centers of influence and past client lists, more of a centers of influence type, and then you can start calling them. So what you can do over time is you will actually build in these communities a very powerful call list that you frankly will have been initiated because the fact that you knocked on their door and provided them something of value, which is information about what's happening in the marketplace. But you do not have to continue to knock on those same doors once you've established a relationship when a call will do. So you can then expand the area, your geographic reach by introducing yourself to new markets. And again, the funnel should effectively work door conversation leads to a gathering of information, which frankly, in most cases you can get off a whole bunch of different sources online, but you know, their phone numbers and whatnot. And then you can start calling them. Calling again is going to be more efficient. And if you happen to live in an area where it's super hot or super cold, well guess what calling is going to be something you're going to want to do as well. And you're going to want to move that conversation along to the phone, as fast as you can. But please, please, please do not be one of these agents. Who thinks you're going to somehow load them up into Facebook and you're going to start dripping on them in Facebook and chasing them around and stocking them on social. Don't do it. It's 99 % of the time, an enormous waste of money. So absolutely positively don't move away from doing the proactively generation. It is your number one job in real estate and another related to that. Don't hire a virtual assistant to do it for you either. By the way, yeah, exactly. By the way, yes, we are still allowing people to enroll in Premier Coaching for free. And all you have to do is text the word Premier to 47372, text the word Premier to 47372. And that does include a daily semi -private coaching call with one of our Harris certified coaches. Guys, we're not holding anything back with this. You get, you know, real estate treasure map, the 90 day massive action plan. A lot of our scripts that pertain to calling sellers, you know, expires and for sale by owners, your 12 month social media plan. I mean, there's so much, well, how about this? A new section we're putting up there for probate. Those of you wanting to get into probate, what else is in the first section that they get the second they click, uh, Premier to four, I'm sorry, they text Premier to 47372. Well, they have a choice of business plans depending on what their situation is. The real estate treasure map is of course our most robust business plan. Takes you actually a few days to personalize and get that done, but it's very powerful. We have a survival plan for those of you who maybe should have gotten started a little bit earlier on making it through real estate in the first place, but that's a survival plan that does not require you to spend any money for example. And then we have the very popular 90 day massive action plan. So you get those in, you know, your first day you can choose and get to work right away. And of course, our daily semi -private coaching sessions with our Harris certified coaches who are all very experienced, not just with the market you just came out of, but also with a shifting, changing market. And they coach all over the country, Canada, et cetera. And coaches who have sold real estate, who've managed real estate teams and brokerages and are currently licensed and who have currently licensed. What's important to say that they're not just people reading scripts as some other quote unquote coaching companies, um, or people that never actually sold real estate before they're calling themselves real estate coaches, which I think is amazing. But anyway, bottom line guys, text the word Premier to 47372 text the word Premier P E P R E M I E R.

It was a tweet that read, hi, I have a question about toddlers, and my question is what the f***. Now, we are doing a little end of summer trip with the four and the two -year -old before the four -year -old heads off to kindergarten, so it struck the old funny bone. It was also exactly how I felt when I checked the markets yesterday after about three hours of being away from my phone to discover that they had completely nuked. So, friends, now you get to play catch up alongside me because I have a question about markets and my question is what the f***. This week's price action began much the same as it has throughout the past month. Bitcoin was painfully range -bound with basically zero volatility and muted volume. In fact, since the last week of July, Bitcoin has been stuck between 29 ,000 and 30 ,000, spending only a few hours marginally outside of that range. On Wednesday night, price began trending down, drifting below 29 ,000. Bitcoin hit 28 ,000 just before midday on Thursday, a move that would have been significant by itself. In fact, Bitcoin lost 4 % over the course of Thursday morning, including a 1 .6 % drawdown in one hour at 11 a .m. This was the lowest level that Bitcoin had traded at since the bullish catalyst of the BlackRock ETF application in early June. Then, at around 5 .40 p .m., Bitcoin flash -crashed. In less than 10 minutes, the price plummeted by more than 9%. Bitcoin hit 25 ,000 on Binance and plunged slightly lower on Bitfinex. Overall, over the course of two days, Bitcoin lost a pretty serious 14 % before finding a bottom. This made it the largest 48 -hour drawdown since the FTX collapse last November. Ethereum fared no better, recording a 15 % drop from its previous 1 ,850 level to hit $1 ,550 on Binance. Prices for both assets did recover marginally into the evening, with Bitcoin recovering to around 26 ,500 and Ethereum changing hands at 1 ,680. The level again decayed overnight, speaking to a continuing lack of confidence. As you guys know, whenever we look at price action, there is always some highly indiscernible combination of narrative catalyst, plus post -hoc narrative rationalization, plus news event catalyst, plus conversation, with usually a big dose of market structure thrown in. And so, as we look into what, quote -unquote, caused this, let's keep all of those caveats in mind. Let's start, however, with market structure. Yesterday, Czech Beatty from Glassnode wrote, newsletter released two weeks ago, quote, Bitcoin options markets have priced the lowest implied volatility in history, with put options in particular seeing the lightest demand. Given the context of Bitcoin's infamous volatility, is a new era of Bitcoin price stability upon us, or is volatility mispriced? Narrator, it turns out, volatility was mispriced. Maybe a little bit more crisply on market structure, Byzantine General wrote, holy motherfucking shit, we just had the biggest liquidation day since the FTX blow up. So, according to CoinGlass data, positions worth over a billion dollars were liquidated on Thursday across all major assets. Bitcoin traders alone came just shy of recording 500 million dollars in liquidations, and more than 90 % of them were on the long side during the price collapse. All told, Thursday was the largest single day of liquidation since June of last year. OKX saw the largest portion of liquidations among exchanges, recording over 30 % of the leverage wipeout. Indeed, some suggest there were individual concentrated positions being targeted on the Asia -focused exchange. Fiki Taut wrote, after studying a bit, I think someone got hunted on OKX. All the OI was building disproportionately on majors on OKX over the past few days, and perps on OKX wicked the lowest out of all the major exchanges. Now, open interest had been slowly ramping for weeks as volatility remained low. That means that more traders were piling into leveraged positions during the summer doldrums. The most recent commitment of the traders report showed a short bias among institutions. The report digests position data from the last week among hedge funds and commodity trading advisors, and showed that bearish bets had been increasing in the CME -listed Bitcoin futures market, with two -thirds of market participants positioned short. But the question is, of course, was that all there was to it? Was this just an example of market structure running rampant? Specifically, is there a possible macro interpretation? What's certainly true is that crypto markets weren't the only ones to see turmoil on Thursday. During the day, global bond yields continued to rise with multiple tenors reaching long -term highs. The US 30 -year bond reached its highest point since 2011, hitting an implied yield of 4 .42%. The US 10 -year yield moved above 4 .3%, matching its October 2022 peak, which hadn't been seen since 2007. UK and German yields have also accelerated this week. Also on Wednesday, the Federal Reserve had released its minutes from the July FOMC meeting. While the July rate decision was an entirely expected 25 -basis point hike, there was remaining speculation around how hawkish the committee was on the need for extremely noncommittal in the post -meeting press conference, saying little other than repeating a commitment to data dependency. The meeting minutes, however, confirmed that officials were concerned that the inflation fight could be far from over, stating that there was a potential need for higher rates. Coupled that with a recent resurgence in the housing market and continued resilience in the labor market were cited as risk factors that could drive inflation higher. The most recent projections from the Atlanta Fed have shown GDP on track to increase by 5 .8 % in Q3, which is of course much too hot to be consistent with cooling inflation if growth continues at this pace. Given that, markets are now pricing in a much higher chance of an additional rate hike later this year, although the majority of positioning is still betting that the Fed is done with this hiking cycle. Capturing a lot of the sentiment I saw yesterday, Frog Capital wrote, The Fed minutes are kind of terrifying. The clowns admit that they are hurting businesses and low -income families in particular, but hiked anyway. Then, they want the big banks to quote, establish readiness to use Federal Reserve liquidity facilities. They're prepping for disaster. On the back of this fairly hawkish set of Fed minutes and another leg higher for long -term yields, both major U .S. stock indices fell yesterday afternoon. The Nasdaq declined by 1 .17 % for the day, while the S &P 500 lost 0 .77 % on its second consecutive red day. Lewis Harland of Decentral Park Capital said, U .S. interest rates are rising to multi -year highs. This is bearish risk assets in general. If this sell -off in bonds continues, we could see negative price action in risk assets into the weekend. Noelle Acheson also put this in the context of the Bitcoin and crypto markets. She wrote, Okay, so we've discussed market structure, we've discussed macro, but what about news explanations? Candidly, usually this factor isn't really a factor. But in this case, it feels at least a little more plausible. There were at least two major news events that splashed across screens just as the market began to crash, both of which could reasonably be expected to impact Bitcoin and broader crypto markets in one direction or another. The first was the Wall Street Journal published an article entitled, A Rare Look into the Finances of Elon Musk's Secretive SpaceX. The headline was picked up by news aggregators as, Elon Musk's SpaceX sold all of its $373 million worth of Bitcoin. Now, of course, reading that, it's pretty easy to understand why that headline might have caused rapid selling from bots. Turns out, however, that the rereported headline was pretty misleading. What the article actually explained was that SpaceX had, quote, wrote down the value of Bitcoin it owns by a total of $373 million last year and in 2021, and has sold the cryptocurrency. In fact, the status of SpaceX Bitcoin holdings were not the main focus of the article, and that single sentence on them is ambiguous at best. It could mean that SpaceX has sold all of its Bitcoin at some point over the last few years, or that it had sold a portion like its sister company, Tesla. What it definitely didn't mean was that SpaceX had recently dumped $373 million worth of Bitcoin onto the market, which is, of course, how the Twitter news aggregators had made it seem. The $373 million referred to the balance sheet write down, rather than the amount of actual selling. Now, the second major news item that broke as the market collapsed was that Chinese property giant Evergrande Group had filed for bankruptcy in New York. Now, this news is not in itself particularly surprising. Just go listen to yesterday's episode about a primer on the Chinese economy. Indeed, this bankruptcy filing is simply to ensure that restructuring efforts that are already ongoing in multiple jurisdictions are recognized in the US. Evergrande had first defaulted on its corporate bonds back in December 2021 and announced an offshore debt restructuring program in March of this year. Trading of Evergrande shares have been suspended for almost 18 months. Still, the headline that a major Chinese property firm was filing for bankruptcy was likely enough to push news trading algorithms to sell off, even if the underlying news is something of a nothingburger. There are also a number of accounts trying to equate Evergrande once again with Tether, but I can't imagine that that had a meaningful impact on price action. And since that's the subject of the show, we will just move on. Interestingly, then, there was a flip based on another news event. Shortly after the price plunge, Bloomberg published an article entitled SEC set to greenlight Ether futures ETFs and win for crypto industry. So what's going on is that over the past few weeks, the SEC has seen a deluge of applications for ETH futures ETFs from almost a dozen fund managers. Until now, the SEC has always prematurely asked for applications to be withdrawn without consideration, so the fact that applications are still ongoing is a majorly optimistic sign. The big concern had always been that ETH futures were an underdeveloped market that couldn't support an ETF, but that market is now as large as the Bitcoin futures market was when those ETFs were approved in late 2021. The article itself updated the story with anonymously sourced comments, which claimed the SEC is unlikely to block the ETFs from launch. They suggest the products could begin trading by October. While this was broadly the position of ETF analysts already, the news was a clear bullish catalyst for ETH. The collapsed price was entirely filled in on the news, rising back up to $1 ,700.

But before we get to that here in just a minute, you can go on over these news. I have to tell you, there was a craziest article a few weeks back and this could, this could have probably, I could probably bring James in on this one because this would be one of those, you know, Friday's finest kind of things, but it actually intrigued me. Have you ever been, you know, this clickbait, you're going through, uh, you know, websites, you're reading the news and they had the little clickbait articles over there. And this one caught my eye. It said these eight habits daily could add up to 24 years to your life. A new study says even adding only one may lead to four extra years. Well, I said, you know, Hey, I'm getting up there.

I just got, I mean, I look, I hope you're laughing with me on this one because it's like, are you kidding me? Is this captain obvious is come on to the internet, but this is what clickbait gets you. Uh, you know, no one would ever guess exercising would have actually extended your life. Nobody would actually guess that being addicted to hard drugs probably lowers your lifespan, not binge drinking all the time.

A highlight from 122 - Preserving Heritage Apple Trees: Rooted Legacy -Josh Fuder
"Yeah, and that's the thing I love about this job is, man, there's always something new that it's like, my gosh, who knew this was going on right in front of our faces out in the garden, year in and year out. I'd like for you to complete this statement, in my garden I have. In my garden, I have too much ambition and not enough time. Well, tell us about that. My landscape is full of half -finished projects. I've got three young kids, over two acres, and a lot of plants, and a lot of garden space. I don't always get it all done, and then family life catches up, and bad weather on the three -day weekend that I had in mind to finally finish this two -year -old project, and then it has to go to the next three -day weekend, and I've got a couple of retaining walls that are just waiting to be finished. Yeah, those are fun. What's your favorite plant? One thing is, I really have a strong sense of fragrance, if you will, or a strong nose. One of the things I realized as I was transitioning this 40 -year -old property that beyond having a big southern magnolia and a few old apple trees, really didn't have much. So trying to cut out areas of the old patchy grass, put in more landscape, I was putting in a lot of just the standard commercial plants that are available and realizing, oh, they might look nice from the road or from inside the house. But I was missing that sense of fragrance. That's what draws me to a plant in a lot of ways. I've tried to select a number of plants here and there. Of course, we've got the tea olive, which is just fabulous at least once, if not twice a year. Toad lilies, got those from a gardening friend. I really love those, even though there's no fragrance there, but man, they are cool -looking. Put in a paper bush a year or two ago. Flower buds that are developing and just sort of hanging on there are gorgeous, and I've got three new trees. Two of which I've actually got in the ground. The other one is still waiting. I got a Kooza dogwood, a yellowwood, and a Chinese French tree, and I'm really looking forward to seeing those kind of mature in my landscape. Put in a yellow jessamine. I had a unique landscape situation. I ran some wires on kind of all four sides as high as my roofing ladder would go, and I planted a yellow jessamine at the base of that thing last spring. And man, that thing has completely covered in evergreen foliage in one season as high as those wires go. For that, it's a pretty good plant. Hopefully I won't regret it like I have some of my other additions. I've put in a few of the switchgrass cultivars, Shenandoah, heavy metal. I like those all right. They're useful for me as somebody who has to do a lot of brush burning, because I do a lot of pruning. A spring window and we can do that burning, that wood may be still wet or have gotten rained on a few days ago. It doesn't matter how wet that wood is, I can go cut a few clumps of my switchgrass and I can get that stuff burning. It's dual purpose for me. There happens to be people that are listening and they have that old family property. I'd love to hear from them. I get calls out of the blue from areas across Georgia with people with those old trees or just want to share memories of their old trees. That's one of my favorite things in this job, and since this project has started is hearing from individuals with maybe an old tree they want to get identified, or even just want to share a memory of a tree they had growing up. They have a lead on a good old apple tree. I'd love to hear from them. Josh, tell us how people may connect with you. The easiest way is through email, which is J, my last name, Fuder, F -U -D -E -R, at U -G -A dot E -D -U. Of course, we have the extension website for Cherokee County and Facebook page, extension Cherokee County Facebook page.

A highlight from Casey Diaz (Encore)
"Welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show. We'll get you from point A to point B. But if you're looking for point C, well, buddy, you're on your own. But if you wait right here, in just about two minutes, the bus to point C will be coming right by. And now here's your Ralph Cramden of the airwaves, Eric Mataxas! We have an amazing guest today, an amazing, miraculous story. Don't leave whatever you're doing, because this is one of those stories. I'm sitting here in the studio with Casey Diaz. The book is The Shot Caller, A Latino Gangbanger's Miraculous Escape from a Life of Violence to a New Life in Christ. Casey Diaz, welcome. Thank you for having me. You have an I mean, the life of violence doesn't do justice to your story. I mean, it's worse than I mean, a lot of people had a life of violence. You're talking a life of extreme violence. So I want to get your story. Where do we start? Where are we like? Where do you I mean, when did you come to tell the story of coming to America? How old were you? I was two years old. Two. All right. So we're not going to get a lot of details. You were two, right? Yeah, exactly. But came here from El Salvador. OK, and you came here as an illegal immigrant? No, legally. You came as a legal immigrant from El Salvador when you were two? When I was two, yes. OK. And we settled in what's called the the Rampart District of Los Angeles. Yeah. And my aunt lived in South Central L .A. So we moved back and forth in the beginning stage of me coming here. OK. And you got involved in violence extremely young. Tell us the story. I was 11 years old. You know, it was at a time where kids were still playing outside baseball and football and a lot of outside outdoor activity. But the only element with me was that my folks with my mom, you know, she worked as a seamstress in downtown Los Angeles. So she'd leave at four in the morning and then wouldn't come back until around 10, 11 at night. And then my father, who was never working, he was always out there. And, you know, he'd be selling weed out there. And your father was selling weed. Yeah. Wow. And, you know, the drug epidemic in the 80s in Los Angeles had just started. So so here's a young boy being left essentially unsupervised. And that becomes the danger in and of itself. So your father is pushing drugs to make a buck and you never see him. Very dramatically different story from your mother, who's obviously working too hard. Yeah. So at what point do you go into gang to being a part of this gang with a violence? I was introduced to the gang culture at 11 years old. Gang started move in it. You know, you start becoming aware. And I was introduced to to this particular gang by one of the guys that we hung out outside. And I started to notice that, you know, cars would come in, pick them up. And then I had some questions and I asked those questions. And, you know, he gave me a little brief description of what a gang was, what it involved. And it lured me in. It became a false sense of family that I didn't have at home. You know, you hear this over and over and over that it's like a family, that people are looking for something. They don't have it and they find it in the gang. So what do you do at 11 or 12? I mean, what what you know, you're you're a kid at that point. What happens? Unfortunately, there was a gang leader that took me under his wing for whatever reason. He took a liking to me. And so here you are at 11 years old, hanging out with a very popular gang leader of this gang. And he takes me to my first, you know, stealing of a car. We do some things, you know, and and one event is what started to. Really everything. change We went and we what we call jumped a rival gang member. And basically we were in a stolen car. We went and looked from found him and assaulted him. And he ended up stabbing the guy and then gave me the screwdriver and said, your turn. And that was my first stabbing at 11 years old. You were 11. Yeah. And you didn't do it with a knife. You did it with a screwdriver. Screwdriver, yeah. What did that do to you? Sometimes at that age, you're so young that you're not sensitive the way you are when you're older. I mean, did it how did you feel? Well, you know, in my home, there was a lot of violence to start off with. My father was extremely violent. He beat my mom. I mean, there was not one week that my mom was not beat senselessly and left in a pool of blood by the hands of my father. So I saw that. And at eight years old, I saw I witnessed a triple homicide right before my eyes at about 20 feet away at eight. Yeah. Three men were gunned down in front of me. All right. So you're 11 years old. You're being initiated into murder, violence. I imagine if you start there, it doesn't get better. It doesn't. You know, little by little. I started to be led by this gang leader and just the popularity that he had almost came upon me. Here's you know, I think it was looked at as oh, look at here's this little cute little gang member. He's 11. And so everybody starts to kind of, you know, pat you on the back and and validate you. And that's what the streets will do. If you don't have any validation from your father, from a good leader in society, someone is going to validate you. And for, you know, in places where it's poverty stricken, the streets will do that. A gang leader or a drug dealer will do that. So you make it sound like I mean, this is sort of the typical story and it's such a horrible story. But you hear this so much that in a way, it's either an absent father or a violent father or a father who's violent and absent. And it seems like you were set up almost. Yeah. Right. I mean, where else are you going to go? That's where those that's where those kids go pretty much. Yeah. So so how does this develop? I mean, are you you know, at what point? Well, let's let's get to the point where you're arrested and all this, how did things developed so that you get arrested so young? Well, you know, I think that once you start to get used to a certain kind of lifestyle in anything, it becomes normal. And for me, violence became the normal. And so, you know, from me, particularly in the stabbing and 11, a craving started to happen within me and I needed to go out there. I wanted to go out there. I saw what it did in the in the eyes of other gang members. I saw the fear that it was bringing. And that crave also, you know, jumped over and I just needed to do that. And it became an everyday thing where I went out there and sought after gang rivals and did whatever I needed to do. So you and you enjoyed the violence? I did. And how old how long does this go on for? For a period of about five years until I get arrested at 16 years old for a gang related murder. OK, so you now I'm imagining that you were involved in a number of murders before this, but you had not been caught. I had been all over the place by this time. I've stabbed many other rebel gang members. Yes. And so you're arrested. What happens now? You're 16. I'm 16. California is about to try a little thing where they want to try to see how young they can convict youthful offenders and try them as adults. And so I was in the very early stages of that of that experiment in law. And so what they initially did was if you were convicted and tried as an adult and found guilty, at first they would send you to what's called the California Youth Authority. They sent you there and then they would evaluate you like the California Youth Authority can hold you up until 25 years old. And so they could do that. But in my case, I was in there for a 90 day observation to see if they you know, if there was any kind of rehabilitation that could still take place in my life. But I was found while in there strangling another rival gang member. I almost killed him. And for that reason, I was sent. I was found not suitable for that kind of environment.

A highlight from Ch Ahn (Encore)
"Welcome to the Eric Metaxas show. They say it's a thin line between love and hate. But we're working every day to thicken that line, or at least make it a double or triple line. But now here's your line jumping host, Eric Metaxas. I have a very special guest today. As you know, on Miracle Mondays, we try to have someone on who believes in miracles, who's maybe experienced some miracles, whose life itself is a miracle. Today, I am thrilled to have in the studio with me, all the way from Pasadena, California, Che Ahn. How do I describe Che Ahn? He's the founder and president of Harvest International Ministry, a worldwide apostolic network of churches in over 60 nations. My goodness, he's also the international chancellor of Wagner University. He's received his master's and doctorate in ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary. He's written many books. He's been married for 40 years to his wife, Sue. They have four adult children, six grandchildren. I think that says it all. Che Ahn, welcome to the program. Well, thank you. What an honor to be on your show. Listen, it's my honor to have you. I've known you for many, many years. You haven't known of me, but I've known of your ministries. What was the one with fire in the title? I can't remember. It was Teen Mania, or what was it? It was something you did here in New York, like 12 or 13 years ago. Well, we did the Call New York. That's what it was. The Call New York. It was the Call New York. Yeah, 2001. That's, you know what? 2001? Yeah, after 9 -11. That is 18 years ago. Yeah, and it's interesting because initially when we came to mobilize the pastors, actually they were very, very rude. They said, we don't need the Call to come in. And then after 9 -11 hit, they said, we need to gather together and have a solemn assembly. We need to come together and repent of our sins. And before we knew it, over 100 ,000 people showed up in Flushing Meadow. The fact that that is 18 years ago completely blows my mind. Yeah, it's been a long time. Because I spoke briefly, I was on the stage, and I remember being amazed at the crowd. It was a huge crowd. Right. And I grew up in Flushing Meadow. I mean, I grew up a couple of miles from there, and we would, as a kid growing up in Queens, New York, I would hang out there. And so to see thousands and thousands of people, then that's when I met you. But for folks who know nothing about you, what is your story? How long have you been, by the way, in Pasadena? Well, I moved in 1984, but I grew up in Washington, D .C., in Montgomery County, Maryland. So this is out of D .C. My father was the first Korean Southern Baptist pastor in North America, so he immigrated in 1958. From Korea. From Korea, South Korea. There was no Korean Southern Baptist church in the United States. He was the first one, and so they wanted him at the nation's capital. There was a handful of Korean students who were studying at Georgetown, George Washington, Catholic University, to help rebuild Korea after the Korean War, which ended in 1953. Actually, it was a ceasefire that took place. And so they wanted the Korean government, wanted the top students to learn public policy, how to do government, and to rebuild Korea. And so there were around 200 students in Washington, D .C., but they wanted a Baptist pastor. There was a Presbyterian church, there was a Methodist, but not a Southern Baptist. And it was like my dad won the lotto. He applied and got the job because it was so hard to immigrate. I mean, it's hard now, but back in 1958 to immigrate to the United States, it was almost impossible because the U .S. government realized there was no Korean Southern Baptist church. So you were born here? No, here's the problem. We had a visa problem. So my sister, my mother, and I, we were separated from my dad for three years. And so finally, after three years, during my formative year or so, almost when I was five, then we got the visa to come to the United States. And so, to say the least, when I saw my dad, I couldn't recognize him because, you know, I was just two years old when he left. People have no idea what others go through. I mean, when you describe that and how many people want to come to America. But I mean, the idea that your father is a Southern Baptist preacher in America. Well, he passed away, but he was a pioneer. No, no, I mean, but in those days that he's from Korea. Right. And so you were raised in the faith, in the Christian faith. Well, I was, but I rejected Christianity very early on because of two things, you know. There was no kids in my Sunday school. It was just students, college students. And so there was no families. There was no other kids my age. And then I went to an elementary school, Forest Grove Elementary School. And my sister and I were the only two people of color in an all -white elementary school. And now, if you go to that school, it's very, very diverse. But back in those days, it wasn't until the fifth grade I remember someone of color coming in. And so there were no other Asians, no African -Americans, no Hispanic. And so we stood out. And so I got in fights all the time because people were calling me chink, even though I'm not Chinese. That's a drug term for Chinese and Jap, even though I wasn't Japanese. You know, by the way, I have a little joke. I say you could tell the difference between a Chinese, Japanese, and a Korean. If you see a rich -looking Asian, they're Chinese. A smart -looking Asian, they're Japanese. But if you see a handsome -looking Asian, he's Korean. Ha! Ha! Take that. Yeah, so anyway, but I got in fights all the time. And I wanted to be so accepted. Plus, my parents were working day and night just to survive in America. And so as a result of that, my craving for acceptance and to be popular led me into the whole hippie drug culture of the late 60s and early 70s. I joke I may have been the first Korean hippie in North America because I never met anyone. I stopped cutting my hair for three and a half years. And my dad is freaking out. He doesn't know what's going on. And by the time I'm 15, I'm doing everything under the sun. Heavy drug user, cocaine, heroin, LSD. And then by the time I'm 17, I'm pushing drugs to support my habit. And so I was totally out of control. But one thing my parents did was pray for me. And I really want to encourage people not to stop praying no matter how bad it looks. Because the Bible says in Acts 16 31, believe on the Lord Jesus and you and your family will be saved. And so my parents prayed me into the Kingdom. And so I'm here by the grace of God. I got radically saved at a Deep Purple concert. So that gives you a little clue where I was at. Wait a minute. You got saved at a Deep Purple concert? Yeah, in May 1973. They were just touring with Smoke on the Water, a new song that came out in 1972. And they were touring in 1973. And it was at the Baltimore Civic Center. I made a concert, 15 ,000 tickets sold out in two hours. They were the number one band in America at that time. And during the intermission I had an encounter with God where the Lord spoke to me for the first time. I'm not talking about audibly in the small still voice. Because I was having this for two weeks, this visitation from the Lord Jesus. Without anyone witnessing to me. That's why I'm saying the power of... Now when you say that because people are listening and I'm really one of them. Like you're thinking, what do you mean by that? I mean here you are, you know, you're a teenager, right? Right. You are big time into drugs and you're selling drugs. You go to a Deep Purple concert. Now you say that for two weeks up to that, God had been somehow communicating with you or visiting you. What do you mean specifically? Okay, so two weeks before I'm at my friend Sal's. We're at a party. Just guys bonging on marijuana and smoking and drinking beer. Nothing heavy. It wasn't like we were tripping on acid or anything. But I was just bored because I was just doing that every day. It was just so monotonous. You know, day in, day out, just getting high. So I went to another room and I was into Zen Buddhism at that time. Just experimenting with Eastern religion. So I went to the room just to go through my chant and after saying the stupid chant, I was saying it incessantly for almost a year. And finally I just said, you know what, this is the stupidest thing I've ever done. I said that to myself. I got nothing out of it, Eric. And you just said, duh. Yeah, right. No, but this is how he said that. So I said God, I said this audibly by the way, no one was in the room. I said, God, I don't even know if you exist, but if you do exist, if my parents, what they told me is true, that there's a heaven and a hell. Well, I don't want to go to hell if there is a hell, but I don't know. So reveal yourself to me. So I was expecting him to show me if he does exist in the days ahead. But as soon as I prayed that right there in the party, the presence of God came all over me and I started to weep because I felt so much love and peace about me. Alone in the room. Alone in my room. And I was sobbing and I knew, I knew it was Jesus. I just knew because I just prayed if what my parents told me as a Christian pastor, if Jesus is the way, if there is a heaven and a hell. And so I thought I was having some kind of emotional breakdown, but it lasted for three days. Every day that presence came on me and I would just start weeping. And I said, what is going on? No one witnessed to me. Are you kidding? Now hold on because we're going to go to a break. Jay on is my guest. It's Miracle Monday. I love these kind of stories. We'll be right back with the rest of the story. And there's plenty more. It's the air from Texas show.

Kink. Oh, not to tick tock video. Oh my God. And don't Mulvaney is wearing things that are pink, like a dress that is pink, and then smiling hysterically creepily into the camera for women's history month. Do you feel all the feminine history happening right here? Dylan Mulvaney's history as a woman is less than two years old. And in fact, doesn't exist at all because doing Mulvaney is, in fact, I do. So why exactly is this happening? Or why, for example, is it that the Democrats in the Senate, they had a hearing the other day about the equal rights amendment. Now, the equal rights amendment has been DOA for decades at this point. There's a hard push for it. In the 1970s, it didn't make it across the finish line because a lot of conservatives pointed out you're obliterating the distinctions between the sexes in law. So what exactly are you doing? Well, Democrats have been trying to revive the equal rights amendment for a while. They've been doing so on the faulty legal basis that if an amendment is voted for over the course of 40 years, by various states, that there's no time limit on the amendment, which of course is ridiculous. But in any case, the main point here is what a pro ERA witness named Kathleen Sullivan, who's a lawyer, a quint Emanuel said that protecting the differences between men and women. She was asked about women's history month is coming up. You're talking about the equal rights amendment. If you're going to protect women, then shouldn't there be distinctions between women and men that are actually protected. No, not really. The ERA would simply make constitutional bedrock, something we already recognize, which is women and men should not be treated unequally. How that gets worked out when there are real differences between men and women is a question for the future. And this court, this court, excuse me. The Senate need not specify to courts of the future how to work those questions out. We don't even have to bother with determining how men and women are different, actually. According to the newfangled left, which of course left dick Durbin, one of the dumber senators in America in Illinois to dismiss all concerns about women in men's sports men and women's sports. Now we hear that what's at stake really is not a constitutional right for women, but the fate of field hockey. I mean, I'm trying to keep up with the arguments here. It might not mean a lot to you, sir, but it means a lot to the girls who play. I believe you have a sincere belief in that. And I believe those girls would probably feel very strongly about the issue if they are field hockey players. Particularly when they're displaced by males on the varsity team. But you see, that's what the argument comes down to. The fate of field hockey. And I think it is much more fundamental. We are talking about the role of women in the United States of America. Yes, we are. We are talking about that. But the whole point is that you are destroying the role of women in the United States of America by saying that women don't exist, that men can actually be women. That's why you're doing a culturally. That's why you're doing it in the halls of power. It's why we are treated to our cultural betters to the site of a man dressed as a woman who is the assistant human health and services secretary. Talking about health, an overweight man dressed as a woman, explaining to you about human health. This is the sort of thing that we are now treated to. And we are supposed to treat it as normal. We are supposed to treat it as though it is regular. We are re centering the conversation around the fringes. Of course, why? Because all the systems that would impede your ability to see this as the normal, that's your problem. It's because you've been indoctrinated by society. Society has to change its rules, society has to change how it thinks about things like men and women. All the powerful systems in which you have been indoctrinated need to be exploded. And that's how you end up with a bizarre spectacle of Rachel Levine, HHS assistant secretary, who is a dude talking health during women's history month or something. March is national nutrition month, and the Biden Harris administration is taking the job to support public health by offering evidence based guidance on nutrition. The 2025 2030 federal dietary guidelines advisory committee just met for the first time to begin its review of the relationship between diet and health throughout our lives. This committee will make recommendations for the new dietary guidelines for Americans based on a number of important factors, including socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, and culture. Each of these factors impacts the food that we eat. The food that we're able to access in our overall nutritional outlook. This work is very time equity because our country is facing a genuine crisis of diet related diseases. Oh, I mean, we're not supposed to mention what those diet related diseases are.

Let's have a think about what is coming from on the agenda today. And as we do that, just to take note of something that is happening right now. Christine Lagarde, speaking at a banking conference in Frankfurt, she says, inflation in the Euro area is far too high. Inflation is likely to remain high for an extended period and the risk of recession has increased talking there as president of the ECB about the Eurozone of course, but let's think about what else is on the agenda and James Wilcox has a briefing forest James. Right out of my mouth. Yes, and as well as that, we're looking ahead to sort of banking speakers. We have Catherine Mann speaking today from the Bank of England at one 15 p.m. and Jonathan Haskell speaking at 5 15 p.m.. We can't actually see what they have to say after the budget as well. You've already mentioned Christine Lagarde. We've been covering the budget so much in terms of after Jeremy hunt makes a statement, all these think tanks respond to it and digest it. We've heard a couple this morning on Bloomberg radio, but I want to point out at 9 30, we'll be talking to the TC is France so Grady to get the view of the labor market and at midday we'll get resolution foundation research director Lindsay judge on. So stay tuned for that. And in eco data, there is more to life than just the UK. It's hard to believe it in the studio this morning with all the budget news. U.S. existing home sales come out at 3 p.m.. Okay, James, thank you very much. It's time now for the London rush. We carve out some time to highlight UK businesses making announcements in London arena and gals with us for that. Good morning to you arena. Where are you starting? Morning Stephen. Let's start with UK retail sales, so it's beers that people shop less in October, the volume of goods sold in shops and online was weaker than forecast. And this is of course another reflection of the cost of living crisis draining consumer spending power. However, you know, consumer confidence ticked up in November for the second consecutive month. It's still near record lows, but this is sort of good news. And that's a collective sigh of relief as analysts called it after the new prime minister worked to stabilize the economy. Okay, so that's the retail sales side of things. That's the macro at any corporate making news this morning. Indeed, we had the legal and general, the asset management firm, saying that the Chancellor's plan solvency to reform was a positive step forward because it will allow the firm greater flexibility to invest in new infrastructure. And the changes changes to obviously too, which of course the UK inherited from the EU will cut insurance capital buffer known as risk margin by 65% for life insurers and 30% for general insurers. And legal in general's pension risk transfer business continued to perform strongly and is actively engaging when pension schemes that have or are close to having a surplus as a result of rising interest rates. Okay, so that's legal in general. Let's talk homes and home building next and MJ gleason. Yeah, so this is a low cost home builder and they're saying that their full year outlook depends on the pace of the housing market recovery. However, the company was encouraged that Hans autumn statement could restore stability. The company experienced a significant slowdown in demand after interest rates shot up and reaction to the stresses mini budget. So, of course, there are now a bit more optimistic after the announcements yesterday. Still, mortgage rate mortgage rates are expected to stay at 5% for another 5 years and will only peak in the second half of 2024, so we're not of the Woods yet. Okay, thank you very much for that. Irina, one of our colleagues sir Ezra Raphael, writing about how housing policy wasn't really a feature of yesterday. That's so no doubt a topic we will return to. Irina and gel with the London rush and for more on those stories, you can read the London rush on Bloomberg dot com and of course on the Bloomberg terminal. Well, let's get back to discussing the UK autumn statement now and the reaction to it. We're joined by the interim director of the onward think tank Adam hoxby Adam good morning to you. Great to have you with us on radio. Now what talk us through your assessment of what we got in the autumn statement? So look, there were no easy decisions to be made yesterday and usually the Chancellor is able to go and have a glass of whisky at the dispatch box and you would have forgiven Jeremy hunt for taking advantage of that opportunity. But kind of three audiences that he needed to appease the Mark hits were the first one clearly massively spooked by Liz truss's government. I think the markets would have been pleased for the return of an OBR forecast by the presence of some really clear fiscal rules. And the plan was coherent if challenging. So markets, I think, responded positively. The public and voters, of course, the second big audience. And I think there was a lot of worry that we'd see a return to austerity we'd see possibly benefits hit hard. And the statement was surprisingly quite rosy on that additional money for education and the NHS benefits protected, the pensions triple lock, protected, and so I think that although voters are going to see this is tough medicine and a lot of the front pages are saying that today, that will be pleased that some of the things they were most worried about didn't occur. Now, the worry there is, that's because a lot of the cuts are coming after the next election that causes economic problems. But that the final group, sorry, the final group's political and the underestimated how fractures this Tory party is and the people that Jeremy hunt needed to keep on side were his MPs and it appears as of today that there are no major rebellions brewing. So a mixed scorecard all in all. Okay, a mixed scorecard, does it look like a Tory budget to you, given the way you described it the way that the tax take has increased because of

"To Janet and Dallas. Okay, so right now you're driving like a 20 year old truck. Yeah, 308,000 Miles, But it's still going along. I've got that money, mileage. And somehow I'm still going along too. Then you sold your Hyundai Alondra, which I'm gonna sumas. A newer, nicer vehicle. Your son's girlfriend. Yes, because at that time I was like, Okay, I'm ready for a new vehicle. I really want to go back into an SUV. Did they break up after you did that? No, They're still together. Okay, then, and it's still running. So that's a good thing. The relationship of the car. Boat, Okay? Um, so I'm looking at as TV's, um, I drove an Audi Q five. And that was really nice. I liked the size. I liked Um I like the style. I like to help. Quiet. Itwas. Yeah, I loved outta Q five. Yeah, I mean, but I e just I didn't spend that much money. Um, it was just more than I really wanted to spend. So I also I like the looks of the Ford edge and escape. And I like the, um The Lexus of All right. Three. I think it is. Yeah, but if you go within our exit Lexus, it's the same price of as acute five now. Okay. I didn't know that. In fact, it's gonna shock you. But even in the compact SUVs like you're discussing the escape and stuff like that, even those Congar Oh, up easily. With everything on it into the high 30,000 range. Well, they keep the Yeah. The the Alby was. I think it was about 36. That was two years old. It was about 36 surprising, isn't it? Yeah. So I'm just And then, of course you were talking earlier about the hybrids and the electrics. And so I'm I'm getting close to retirement. So I'm assuming this could very well be my My last car. Maybe one more. So, you know, I don't know. Do I do electric? Do I? I don't know enough about those really about you know, Janet I'm married and my wife retired from Fox four. And she always wanted a Jaguar. So when she first retired, we finished up police on an Acura and I got her the Jaguar because you know what I said. She's retired. This car can last a decade. Mm. So I got her the car. I did not lease it. I just got out of the car because she is Retired. And you know what, she said. What made you think I wanted to keep it a decade? Well, we have a history of keeping our vehicles a long time. And I probably should have married you because then I have a Jaguar 22,000 Miles almost four years old that she's going. I didn't say I wanted that for a decade. So, but there you go. But here if we go back to the compact SUVs, I have to take back and remind you, Janet that because compact SUVs, crossovers full size SUVs and trucks Are literally 80% of the market. Now, if not more, that those are the ones that the price has been jumping up the fastest on. So you're in Dallas, right? Yes. I do not know if this will still stand. But you can call Adam Vincey have platinum, Ford and terrible Because a month or so ago we had enough rebates and all that on the Ford escape that they were. They had offers on some 2020 models. I want to say the S e. Like, eight grand off. Oh, well, yeah, that makes a very affordable. Mm. The other option I want you to look at is and again the other side of the world. I want you talk to Alan Glover and highly Mazda in Hurst. And ask about the price of a C X three because that is going to be actually the closest in size and function to about a Q five. You liked Okay, I'll obviously a lot less money for a brand new one, no less because I think they have some cash back in 0% financing to boot. But it's a phenomenal little compact crossover for not much money. Okay and the other issue to give us a third choice. Is, I want to say the Hyundai Tucson. Has it has a pretty big rebate and discount right now, And that's also an exceptional crossover. Okay? Yeah, we actually were looking at the hundreds to Tucson in the Santa Fe. So, um, if you can't afford it If you can't afford it. Do the Santa Fe with Roosevelt because that is in that class of compact crossover that is the best road vehicle of all of them. All right. The monster see extreme may be the most fun to drive outside of acute five with Santa Fe is gonna retire and you can take road trips across America. That's pretty much the one I'd want to be in.

"two year old" Discussed on The Family Vacationer
"That kids already notice these differences when they get together with cousins And you know different types of neighborhoods. We live and different types of foods. We eat but it's just a little bit more when we are spinning the night or traveling with people. So you're talking about those differences on a tag on a little bit when you when you're with extended family you know kids get exposed family members that you know. Put it politely make different choices. I know we had a few those in my family but sometimes they're not so good choices and so what are some good ways firstly us to address that before the trip and during the vacation. Yeah i think that it's helpful for small. This issue goes beyond vacations. you know. they're certainly. We'll see different choices being made during holidays as well. But it's helpful if you know for sure that a family member is going to present a certain way. Let's just for sake of an example. Call it like a dietary restriction but it could be anything right or a family member lack who you know is vegan or something sorry to performance. Megan have questions about that. And maybe it's no big deal and you just mentioned it to your child when you get there but if you feel like your kid needs some prep time because they're going to notice something about someone go ahead and give them a heads up that you know in our family. We do this and their family they do. That and everybody makes a different choice for their family. This is another example. I'll use aside from something. Like a dietary restriction is just the way in this is a little bit of a Opening a can of worms but just in the parent parent differently so grown siblings may parent the cousins differently. The first cousins differently and that front saying that kids notice. We'll play video games all afternoon and you let us play for like an hour. You know so have. That happens on a vacation. You might want to think about that or anticipate that ahead of time and through If you have a good relationship with your adult sibling and you wanna talk through. Hey let's have some vacation rules for playtime. Let's figure out what the cousins are allowed to do together. If you already know before you even get there that this family is a few no free range situation. And your vary your regimens at about your parenting. That's probably the biggest example. I think things like like different choices and you know how we express ourselves or what we eat. Isn't that big of a deal to kids. You can just feel like oh well. They're allergic to that. Or they only eat. This and kids. Kids will like okay. I mean they usually don't lena don't have an opinion about those things but anything that feels like an injustice like white is causing that to do this and i don could potentially be a conflict on the vacation. So you want do wanna get ahead of that. And i talk a lot about our family. This is what we decided on this family. That's what they decide. And sometimes it can be helpful to have vacation roles to say it's okay to luton up your rules a little bit but needing to define them as would so my kids know that they're only allowed to eat whatever kinda popsicles they want with. Like whatever's nsm at the beach. Just the thing. Like i think probably happened early on and i couldn't find like the natural fruity popsicles and i for my two year old and it's like a thing now that my kids know that they can whatever the grocery store or they can pick those those red white and blue popsicle like learning artificial everything like whatever it's vacation so but they know that i would never buy that at home..
