"Speaking of not going to convince anybody. Liz Cheney was ousted from leadership within the GOP earlier today, it was a very big studio. Everybody had very, very strong opinions about it. Liz Cheney is is about as pro Trump as a conservative Republican can get. According to the Heritage Foundation. She voted for President Donald Trump, or with President Donald Trump something like 92.9% of the time. It's It's an amazing, amazing figure, but because she decided to come out against him in the most recent impeachment. Now what they're effectively doing as we're going to hear from CBS is this kind of sacrificial killing. They're doing this thing where they're trying to demonstrate to the base. They're trying to show everybody in the Trump base that they really do care. And by doing so, we're going to oust Liz Cheney from GOP leadership for just expressing her opinion as guaranteed to her by the Constitution of the United States. As a representative, we need to get rid of her, regardless. Here is a list Cheney earlier today. Today we face a threat America has never seen before. Ah, former president who provoked a violent attack on this capital in an effort to steal the election, has resumed his aggressive effort to convince Americans that the election was stolen from him. He risks inciting further violence. Millions of Americans have been misled by the former president. They have heard on Lee his words, but not the truth as he continues to undermine our democratic process, sowing seeds of doubt about whether democracy really works at all. I am a conservative Republican and the most conservative of conservative principles is reverence for the rule of law. Theological.

Introducing Ronald Young Jr., Solvables Newest Host [TEST]
"Listeners. I want to introduce you to ronald young junior. You might be familiar with his name from other work. In podcasting leading shows like time well spent and leaving the theater. He's sometime guess contributed around. Npr's pop culture happy hour. We are really excited to make it. Official that ronald is going to be the newest host of solvable. Thank you thank you for having me. I'm so so excited to be here so publicly on the team. Believe it or not hosting solvable is not my main job. My main job is being. Ceo pushing in and pushkin over the last year in lockdown has like doubled in size. We have almost fifty people now. And it's exciting. There's a lot going on But it's sort of crowded out the time that i like to spend preparing and figuring out gas that also i'm not really a host. I don't know if you noticed that. I think i am trade. I'm an Host i have certain hosts qualities that i'm really interested in talking to the guests on the show And i have a lot of drive to learn. But i don't have that quality of hosting which i hear your voice and i really wanna know how that is done. Well first of all. I don't know if that's that's the message like we got hosted coaster said coming on all star show. I've always found it easy to talk to people. I've always founded easy to connect with folks and ask questions. And i'm curious about and mostly because as a child i was always encouraged to ask whether it was two friends. The families the teachers. And i think that's what helps with being a good host and with conducting good interviews. Which you do a great job of thank you ronald but yeah no. I think that just that basic quality of curiosity. If if you don't wanna know you can't read someone else's questions the producers on the show do suggest a lot great questions for us but ultimately you ask the ones that are your questions that have been you want. no yes. It's funny because like you know working with the solvable team. It's certainly is a team effort. But i think what makes a good host that what makes a good interviewer is the ability to read the conversation and to know when it when it needs to take a turn when it's about the pivot or when you're curiosity might push the interviewee a little deeper into the subject matter and even more comfortable and ready to answer more questions as they go so and i really enjoy doing that so this is a very exciting role for me. You do something i mean. Since were on this this topic. I do think being a really good host goes beyond just the flow of the conversation. Asking the right questions that something about creating this this environment this kind of comfort even this sense of place. And here's what. I don't feel that. I really know how to do but i hear in your voice you know in a lot of the people who are just really good shows terry gross. You know you just feel like you're at her place like you're in her world and you know in the guest is coming into her world and you feel as a listener. You're made to feel welcome and comfortable. How do you do that route. You know wish. I could say there was a trick. I wish i could tell you. Hey do this thing. And this'll this'll work but for me. It's just it's hospitality. It's really being genuinely interested in what they have to say. It's paying attention to them. Not necessarily thinking so far ahead that you can't be president in the conversation creating that warm sensitive environment it really comes from like a genuine place inside people and i think most people talk to you. We'll tell you that this is who. I am all the time. So it makes it easier for me to just bring this be to a hosting role Whereas some people. I think are very good at being a host and then you know in the rest of their lives are not nearly as hospitable or friendly and i can't say anything about ten gross but i i know that good host is being able to create that sense of hospitality in the conversation that they're having that moment. Yeah i think of the great host of my childhood dick caveat who was on. Tv obviously long before your time but back in the days before cable there only a few channels every night cabinet was having these interesting people on his show and he's charming. He's charmed by the gas and a lot of what he's trying to do. Is of course just inject wisecracks. I've got clip here. That's a good example of that it's cabot talking to the comedian don rickles. It's hard for you to be serious but it is. I think people don't admit that deep down inside. If i may be serious for a moment that you do something on stage that all of us would like to do if we had no class the other host i think about all the time as i grew up listening on the radio growing up in chicago. Two studs terkel here just as one example is studs terkel interviewing muhammad ali at one thousand nine hundred seventy five. Why do you think it is always in this particular theater. So many different people are. Why would they rooting for you. The outsider we'll i think the masses root for me because this scuffling they've been persecuted they figure by the tat taxes and whatever they've underdogs people are basically the underdogs hole and the things that i say from my people in the free involve people and the way i speak out in the title of the have and the and now let this. Stop me from recognizing every day man that thing. This is what they whether it'd be black or white. The massive people hardworking people the amazing thing about studs terkel circle. He was so good at talking to anybody today. He would have like a janitor and then he would. Have you know an opera singer. And then he would. Have you know a former vice president or politician and he just part of what was great about him with. He would talk to everybody the same way. Yeah i mean there's a sense of empathy that comes with no matter. Who's in the room. It should be able to be extended to anyone who's sitting opposite from you whether they'd be the janitor or the president of the united states. The other thing is not being afraid to ask even a question that may not sound as smart as you think it does. I think larry king wants said He was he was on. He was talking to jesse thorn. My friend hobie. Khan who wrote you negotiate anything. We grew up together. He says to me larry. The secret of your success is your dumb dumb. Is the great road to success. Because you not afraid to. I don't know tell me help me. That's a lot of interviews help. help me that. You're you're a brain search. You got brain surgery tomorrow morning. Think about it tonight when you go in the check your hands. If they're steady. And then all of a sudden you have this. Very poignant moment because larry king asked a question that is wow. I would have even sit there. I was like ronald do you. Do i do that. Also i wanna make sure that. I i do that but having that empathy allows you to be embassy to cross from you like i said whether it's the janitor or the president of the united states. Yeah so for this show. We do interviews with a particular kind of focused. How is problem solving. And how are people who have ideas about solving problems. Making the world veteran capable of making the world better. And that's the thing that can be big range of stuff. Yeah if you look out there let's say your your houses near the water and you look out there and you're just like the water seems to be creeping closer and closer. You're only thinking about what's going to happen when the water reaches your house and all the horrible things that can happen as the water continues to rise and the flooding when you when you start to think about all that it kind of changes your posture versus if you think how do we stop the water. How do we get the people out. How do we keep my house. Dry and think in terms of This podcast i'd like that it's pivoting from us talking so much about what the issue is because in most cases we know what the issue is what we really need to know is. What's the best way forward. How can we like either neutralize whatever. This problem is or at least adjust our lives so that the problem isn't what it is. Do we need to build a bridge. Maybe we need to build our houses higher whatever that means in order to To get out of the water. I think it gives a bit of optimism to the world

Birth Care for Every Body
"The reality. According to the cdc about seven hundred women die each year in the united states from complications related to their pregnancy. And the thing is is that you know this country says it is the most modern advanced industrialized and so it's seven hundred women. Every year is too many and black and indigenous. People are two to three times more likely to die from pregnancy related issues than their white counterparts. The relationship with the medical field and doctors and whether or not we as people of color can have a say over how we are treated probably is one of the factors here earlier this month representative corey. Bush testified before the house oversight committee about her own experiences during childbirth. Let's take a listen around five months. I went to see my doctor for a routine prenatal visit. As i was sitting in the doctor's office. I noticed a picture on the wall. They said if you feel like something is wrong. Something is wrong. Tell your doctor. I felt like something was wrong. So so that's what i did. I told my doctor. I told her that. I was having severe pains. And she said oh. No you're fine. you're fine. Go home. And i'll see you next time. So that's what i did. I went home one week later. I went into preterm labor. Twenty three weeks. My son was born one pound three ounces. his ears were still in his head. His eyes were still fused shut. His fingers were smaller than rice. And his skin was translucent. A black baby translucence. Can you could see his lungs. He could fit within the palm of my hand. We were told he had zero percent chance of life. The chief of neonatal surgery happened to be in the hospital that morning and saw my case on the surgical board and she decided to try to resuscitate him. It worked for the first month of his life as i was on a ventilator fighting to live for four months he was in the neo. Natal care unit. The doctor who deliver my son apologized. She said you were right. And i didn't listen to you. Give me another chance to us later. I was pregnant again. So i went back to her sixteen weeks. I went for an ultrasound at the clinic and saw different doctor. Who was working that day. I found out again. I was in preterm labor. The doctor told me that the baby was going to abort i said. No you have to do something. But he was adamant he said. Just go home. let it aboard. You can get pregnant again. Because that's what you people do. Mr kelly was with me. We didn't know what to do after the doctor left. So we saw a chair sitting sitting in the hallway. My sister picked up the chair. She threw it down the hallway. Nurses came running from everywhere to see what was wrong. A nurse called my doctor and she put me on a stretcher. The next morning by doctor came in and places arklow on my uterus and i was able to carry my baby my daughter my angel who is now twenty years old. My son who was saved is now twenty one years old. This is what desperation looks like that chair flying down the hallway. This is what being your own advocate. Looks

GO CHECK IT I'm here looking trying to figure out where it is a gift to a place, and then it just stops there was in DC for like two days and then it went to somewhere in Maryland and then they said it was going to get here yesterday and then I look on the thing to try yesterday and it's like it's running late or we should the postal services responsible for this and then it's not Fedex and it's the postal service.

But anyway, I don't feel like I can just really quick go outside and fix the problem I'll be able to put some sub-standard moisturizer. And that's not what I want.

Am clearly concern what's going on with the postal service because I can't get no postal services fault though it doesn't sound like it is.

Because he's GonNa get lost in the noise fair at this last story comes from business. Hi, this is Matthew Daily of the Associated Press reported in the Washington bureau, but you may not have heard about as the Democrats in Congress are calling on the new postmaster general to testify about delays and mail delivery. The Democrats are worried that the male is being delayed and will harm people from getting their medicine and other supplies. But also importantly because they think that there's going to. To be a lot more mail in ballots in this presidential election Lewis Joy. A Republican fundraiser is the new postmaster general. He's putting a plan that will cut costs by eliminating overtime for thousands of postal workers. He also ordering the male be kept until the next day it postal distribution centers are running late. Democrats. Are saying this could be a very big problem at are saying, this also could be linked president trump who has long warned about mail in ballots even though he. He had vice president pence themselves. Vote by absentee trump has tweeted that allowing more people to vote by mail result in a corrupt election that will lead to the end of our great Republican Party as he put it Democrats, say that's nonsense. Trump is saying Monday that the postal services can't handle it, and that's why there's all these delays. The Oversight Committee of the House led by representative, Carolyn Maloney of New York, wanted to schedule the hearing this week, but delayed it because. Because to joy could not make it because of a meeting of the Poster Board of Governors. Joy has been complaining that the Postal Service is financially unsustainable because it has had a decline in mail volume over many years, and also because of the pandemic where many workers have been calling in sick, and so they're having a cash situation, we have to pay and bring an extra workers to job. House. Democrats have a bill that would give the postal service twenty, five, billion dollars in. In order to rescue it, Republicans have resisted that and so far. It hasn't gone through. There are still a bill being debated in Congress right now, that would be a larger bill for the Economic Rescue Democrats say that as essential not to slow down the mail because it's such an important service and that people rely on it all over the country and especially in rural areas where you really need the postal service to deliver your packages on your mail and Fedex, and other. Other places are too expensive basically for them to use it..

"Jesus did not stand for the cause of Jesus Christ right Jesus. Christ stood for these much larger stance that helped a lot of people. I think that what he said was stupid. I. Don't know if he is a bad person I, don't really know what's going on here. I. Don't get like you could say that he is just a man of faith. He could be a man of faith in good for him. I'll be in a manifest. But what he said in response to questions about that. Stupid. There's just no way around it. It didn't make any sense. It did not add up. I don't know what's on his mind. He hurt himself over the weekends. We're probably not gonNA find on anytime soon. What's on his mind? Because imagine he ain't GonNa, be there for very long, but I didn't know what was going on with him, but I saw it at Meyers Leonard had to explain why was that? He stood for the National Anthem and I'm like hold up. Don't you dare. Here's why don't you dare as they don't you dare because if he has to explain why he stayed up for the national within the NBA bubble that you need to ask every single person in America? Widely standing for the national lamp. If that's something that you have to explain yourself for because everybody in the world does this right I. Think it's fair to be curious in wonder about that for Meyers Leonard, but he'd have to explain that to nobody as far as I'm. I'm concerned if he did not feel like doing that, he did not have to do that I don't care because his brothers in the marines. I don't care because he gets a Charley Horse. If he says down to law if he wanted to stay for the national anthem, then he could stand for the national anthem. I do not see him standing for the national anthem as being in opposition to the people who do not stand for the national anthem I do not see the people. Standing in direct opposition to people who do I just don't see it that way. Now, they asked him if he would say black lives matter and he absolutely said, yes, black lives matter. He went all the way down that line. He gave the answers that people are looking for under those circumstances right for all I know Meyers. Leonard. Is Don't feel like argument with his brother, right? He could be like, yeah, it's out of respect or it might just be like Yo man, i. I gotta go deal with this cat after we get off of here, and it's just not worth it to me. Maybe that's what it is, but he doesn't have to explain why he doesn't i. think that a very important point that's been lost here for some people is that the reason that the cabinet thing started off as an issue, the fundamental question was not one of blackness. The fundamental question was not one of oppression. The initial question, the one that we started with was. Do you have to stay in for the national? Anthem. Period, do you have to stay in for the national anthem? That's the question and the answer to me is no. If you choose to. Feel free, but we can't make people do that. Right. That's where we wind up with a problem is in making people do it. And it is the same problem when you make people not do it. We can't reduce individuals to gestures. We can't do that that to me is the worst play that we could possibly have here remembered as A. Whole. Bunch of cats in the NFL forget kneeling during the national anthem, just sit down. They don't get no hill. Marschall is been sitting for the national anthem. But he never answered any questions about it and guess what happened in Marshawn Lynch time period. He's become a universally beloved figure. You see what I'm saying. Bite. You don't have to stay in for the national anthem. That's it. Like we asked holid- why he did that stand for the national anthem, he gave an explanation for it. But the thing that he never had to answer for was not standing for the national anthem. That was a courtesy. He did not have to give us that he chose to and he wants to express himself, and it's cost them a lot that he chose to do that. But fundamentally. What do you have to do for the National Anthem and the answer is basically whatever you want. That's the answer is what the answer always should be. And Meyers Leonard. He wanted to stand you can stand for the national anthem and also be down for this 'cause you can neil for the national anthem and not be down for this calls either those things are the case the where we started on this issue is where we must remain to a degree, which is this is not a country where we tell people how to react to a song. This is not a country where you obligated to give a prescribed response. To aisol in the same courtesy that you have to afford to. Colin. Kaepernick is courtesy that you have to afford tomorrow's letter and I'll be honest with you. If Meyers Leonard gave that I think black lives matter. But I don't support to cause argument. Alright. All right. He gets to do that too. He gets to do that and so yeah. I got no problem with him and I think that people really need to stop and go back and think about this because I remember at some point whenever something happened in the NFL owners or do some and I would see people ask the question about certain players it'd be like will are you gonNa take a knee now? Why do I have to do that? There are other things you can do. It doesn't have to be that doesn't have to be that one answer, and so we can't make Lebron and Anthony Davis, they don't have any of the slogans on the back of their jurors, right? They don't have it. All right. You don't have to do it for whatever it is. You don't have to do it. I would like to be able to explain it. But in the end, you don't half to do it, and so I don't see a guy like Meyers Leonard Standard during the anthem, it'd be like. ooh He. Better. Tell me why. I really am more like. What's going on here? And doing that out I, think you know, but I just think. We need to get back to two questions. Why are we even play in the national anthem before these games? And who are you to tell somebody who they're supposed to do while it's played. Goodyear believes that movement drives US forward that every mile brings us one step closer to our goals.

"All right I guess gave, we also have zog about you know the social stuff, the bubble I mean a man, this is true. This is this is what people want out front I don't blame. Them is black lives matter on the court by the way for what is worth have not found anything that they've done to be distracted by God I haven't found that any of the gestures have overpowered. The which I think is very important I'm a little over the names on the back of the jerseys to be honest. Honestly, I feel like we just needed that for the first couple of days. After the first four days, they've now put people's names the jerseys along with the. The the various slogans they were offer off the list that they could choose it. Maybe you can only do so much with those and the ones they chose are buying large mild. I'm not judging anybody for because I. Think we talked about this on here before I. Didn't think there was any way to really do this. Right. That seemed like a good idea that I think that once they started, they probably shouldn't have done especially since I don't know who the hell half the Jews are in the NBA that out there equality. What's your name? Again? It's so many of them that I, don't know who they are whatsoever by the way as anybody compiled a list. Of all the names that the white dude's using that is something that we should have enlisted. Yeah. So of time like. I picked the whole joing bliss. He picked ally Dow's appreciate it I think Gordon Hayward. Education before. Act Badger what it was like him try to look on analyst at five. Like black labs, now, I'm not saying that Caruso did a just black lives matter. Yeah. Yeah. But like I feel like like stand up Gordon's like not not not that doesn't feel right either right is that education reform? I would love to know how Gordon Hayward things that education should be reformed. Somebody go out there and ask you if. I was tailored to do is yet here and the Apple Cart down there as Gordon Hayward, what kind of education before Gordon Hayward, what I would love to know how funny would it have been? Now? You WanNa play, Practical Joke, Oh, Gordon Hayward. Jerseys it may say, love us on the back. It just sent him out there hitting like everybody looking at me. So funny. Would he be ready? Love. Love us like what happens if the white dude ask for love us? You tell them? No. One thing that we talked about before this started was whether or not. We're GONNA, be any sorts of game discussion of it. I've heard it. I haven't heard of the in game discussion. Now I, haven't seen that either I mean I just don't know how those people are, but I want to hear more from the white. Do I don't want to hear from the? The White News. Just so I can hear the people I. Agree with I, WanNa know what some of these other guys think right? Like I WanNa Know Gordon Hayward thinks about these things I know we know about him. I am curious about what it is for him to participate in this. I'M NOT GONNA. Make any assumptions about what he thinks about these particular changes. Right. But I would be curious to know what he thinks I wanted to a little more from you guys from. Where they're coming from I, thought the Mavericks. Thought this was a good move on their part where like Dodge had equality on the bag is Jersey in Slovenian Max I, forget his last name, the German dude he had the bag is in German Jj. BEREA had his in a Spanish like and I think they Luca, for example. CAST is to never Slovenia tuning in to see him. So I think it's you know what I mean like I think it lands different. I think I. I. thought that that was a cool move for them to make. But I yeah, I mean it only can go so far because they're only say so much and so like I don't judge anybody for it, I'm not talking down to anybody about the Jersey thing. But I jokes, I. I do I realize how many Jews in the NBA don't really recognize? Right, you don't realize how much your brain picks up at one time and apparently picked up the names on the back of jerseys for a while like keep in mind who people are just gotTa take it in as gang goes on because I'm like who the hell is piece. You're also trying to prepare for still in the league. Aren't you know I I try. I try not to prepare I I. Try to make it entertaining interested y'all, but the national anthem has become a thing also with this so. Here's where I am on this on a number of levels number one, we need to make a very important point in this particular case. Kneeling for the national anthem is not a protest. It's a demonstration is being done as widely as it is an almost encouragement from the NBA. It's not a protest. I'm not saying anything bad about the people who are doing it, but I do think it's important to note it's not a protest, not anymore not at this point. Right the League is saying to do it everybody up and down is doing it. It is now being shown or used by people basically saying. Now. I get it. Right? Basically, it feels like a message Takada cabinet from everybody. Sorry. We late and that's what they're saying and I think there's something to be said for that. Right I. Mean I think that's okay. But it's not a protest that is important to note number one, number two, I, don't understand I hope they're going to stop doing this. Then I go keep play the national anthem al-tv before every game Mardi because I don't think there's any reason for them to play the national anthem on TV for these games like we really only do that in late in the NBA finals I. Nobody's there. There's nobody in the crowd, you don't have to do this right. I think if there was a point they wanted to make with all the televised kneeling for the national anthem at that point has been made I. Don't think they need to do it anymore. It's GonNa, get mad corny as they keep going. Right. I gotTa tell you I, don't think they need to do that. So like of our running the. The NBA I would say not to do this with the national anthem anymore. That's where I am on that. But I understand what they're doing, and they're trying to show a level of solidarity, an understanding with Oprah's people, and I mean, I, don't have an alternative and he's not as show and that as a demonstration I, the show was just a show like we got started giving people but so much. Much. Credit for the shows. But there's nothing wrong with this show. Doesn't bother me. Let me tell you what else doesn't bother me people standing for the National Anthem doesn't bother me at all. It did not bother me there, Meyers Leonard stood for the National Anthem. It did not bother me that Jonathan. Isaacs, stood for the national anthem. It didn't. Now. I found it weird. The Jonathan Isaac did not wear. Wear the black lives matter t shirt, and then I found his explanation of it. Rambling. Basically saying that the only 'cause he could stand up behind is Jesus Christ, and his thing if you try.

No. No like secret like this was just no, he was dating a woman. Dear, Rose had a child with. You know that's how circles overlap. You know what I mean like. That's just how it goes I. Think those guys got no beef or nothing like that. Like I'm not saying anything salacious. I'm just saying that is what example. There are many more examples that you do not know that you have not heard anything about as somebody EMIKO. Girlfriend Hotel. We should just go talk about something else we need. Go get no better than that. America's back to work..

"All right guys, I, gotTa be honest with you. I didn't realize how much I Miss Basketball Games. You know how much you Miss Basketball because I have been loving all this basketball. It's been really fun. Hasn't it? I had no idea granted big. Basically, all we get is good games right now. Right? We got all the bottom of the bottom out of the league. It feels like every matchup I seen has been good one. I've been amazed how much basketball has been all and I, have loved it like I've loved it and I also have loved at the same time because the counterpoint is I developed myself at nighttime routine without having sports and now I can't figure out when a squeeze. Squeeze, my yoga end is basketball. That's all it every night. They have changed the times up a little bit though that they do finish a little bit earlier. Yeah. But I'm not used to having anything to do at night I, got used to getting off work at five o'clock. Whatever time I wanted it to be. You know what I'm saying game flipped up, kate do that no more. But I actually thought they've done a very good job with the television product like I. Think they've done a good job reproducing. Reproduces the right way to put it. But the fake crowd noise works you know like I don't feel like I'm watching a silent quiet NBA game I feel like in a lot of ways, it's kind of the best of both worlds I feel like we are getting. Some of the feeling of watching a basketball game like as a television Prada. But what we're also getting is a very intimate feeling of watching this like it does feel like watching a basketball tournament. If you just Kinda like basketball but don't love it I, wonder how goes over for you. But like for me, it does Kinda SORTA take me back to go into some tournaments and being at some early eight or just showing up at like a practice or at a gym or something like that. That's really what this feels like. Part of what I've also found to be interested in too is even without the crowd. These dudes go at whore, it ages 'cause the bright lights are all. All they do is play hard because they play hard and watching Jonathan hardened. That was great, right? Like you don't like each other. So we had hardwood little bit the shutdown at the end of the game. We got that that was a win. We get the ups and downs of the Lakers that's been interesting to check out. They beat Utah last night they did and they Clinton number one seed in the West which everybody said, Lebron wouldn't do. That's mark. I. Wish people because he gave murky great doubt. You're very excited you very excited number one seed in a tournament where the number one seed really doesn't matter that much. That's when you get the number. One season is this. But I mean I think it's interesting that I don't care what the ratings are. Right? Because you know people start coming up with like watching how many people watch the Games. Whatever it is I, don't care because I'm watching the game right I. don't care how big a deal is to anybody else like this is like basketball fans are so happy and having this pre and have, and will we got out here? It's Kinda Weird. Weird watching those interviews, right. Where like all the floor interview with Lisa's standard over here and into coaches at a microphone. However far away. You wonder if these coaches are going to start preferring that, yes. What I appreciate about the NBA taking this approach is they don't really have to do all this like with the level of control that they have on that bubble. They don't really half to do all this, but I think. Think them doing this sets and important example for everybody else like I do think at some point, it'll happen that when people start realizing nobody's testing positive in this NBA situation, they see what's happening in these other places where the dudes all up on top, each other. I think they'll come to appreciate the value of the NBA demonstrating with level of diligence is truly required us to stamp this down just showing people. This is how. How to get down is this is what it's gotTa be, and I think they're going to finish this NBA people. I'm told there only concern is when families start showing up. So let's imagine a scenario where the bubble opens and you know families are coming down because here they're gonNA, let families come down family as an amorphous chart, right. So we have a hotel where wives are staying and another hotel where very important people. Casually, referred to his girlfriend's will be stay. Well. That's the reality show I WANNA see. Oh. Yeah. People are going to be so pissed fizzy have long term girlfriends to for whatever reason they just decided that they wanna give married the end is like Ogun mean to tell me that like my man that I've been living with a the last decade I'm not saying just because I don't have that ring. Hold onto her beef with that is not going to be with the NBA. Her beef with that is going to be with the man who was not purchased a ring. All these we on defense cats. They hope that they will realize. That's how it goes like now, baby, that's a family hotel to, and then they go and get to realize is nothing. But like women no key is you know. Maybe some kids, but you know what I'm saying. But that's GONNA cost drama that I had not considered. Yeah. Go it over to the girlfriend hotel not the wife Hotel Clarence, the girlfriend hotel and The thing about the girlfriend hotel is just because you. This one guy's girlfriend now doesn't mean you weren't somebody else's girlfriend before. That somebody else's girlfriend whose girlfriend you were before. He may have somebody else there in Orlando who by the way is staying in the wife Hotel. Here's what else I wonder about to us. Okay. It's going to be doing this one. You tell me what you think about this right now, you know how it is like I don't drink so. When I go to parties that have drink tickets, I always wind up giving my drink tickets to other people. And now they got extra tickets. So if you dude who ain't go have nobody come in to kick you while you're down there, right? You're not and you are already using one of your girlfriend tickets..

"Right. How do you reconcile that with this? Like how do you put those things together? That's part of it. Number two woods was actually very surprised by the way. The wrote a bitch responded to him. When they had the phone conversation and reason is cassidy. told me that he had been talking. To. His coach. About his Co. concerns, right. Like he said that they hit had conversations about this, and he says that you know the players are trying to make a push on something to do this and woods. Told me was he said role of which was with it and he said the role of which was with it because Rovic. Knew that it wasn't safe for the players to play or to travel. They only have fifteen people at the locker room at one time. There's no plan and so woods thought that Rovic, supported this like he thought he was going to let him know this. This and that it would go the same way that he went when the guys from cal to their coach. When the guys from Stanford Talk to their coach. When two guys from Oregon taught to their coach, they did not get any of this pushback and this would start was going to happen is that he would have the same sort of thing as the other guys had. He talked to them in advance. So he thought it was going to go and then it went the other way and he walks out and he doesn't know if he's been kicked off the team. Right. He says he has no idea of he's been kicked off. The team had a phone conversation with the athletic director on Sunday after this happened, and they have led a director backed up. We're roller bitch was coming from and he said that's the last phone call. He's received from anybody at the program was there, and so from there, he doesn't know if he's on the team, he says, he's not on any communications. Not Group chats not on anything like that. Right. But he doesn't know if he's on the team and appointed, he made me was he said. They told the media that we're not kicked off the team, but it would be nice if they told us, there were not kicked off the team because everything for those players feels like they've been kicked off gene you. So the woods as we're not other group chat. They cleaned out my locker. Nobody's talking to me that feels like I be kicked off the team right now would says the he thought that he would be able to participate with his teammates. They still be around the team if he opted out for Kobe, I haven't talked to Washington. State about this, right. I could understand why the school would say if you opt out, then you're not on the team because that's what football teams do you become invisible when you're not playing or there'd be an injury or anything else? You'd become invisible at that. Part doesn't necessarily surprise me that they would do that. Would it not be countered to the point of opting out to still hang around the team? That's a fair point I. that's what I'm saying like if you opt out, but you're still around players in the midst of a pandemic get where the school is coming from there. But whatever the school is doing, the problem is this has not been clearly communicated with the players and so as of this recording at ten thirty eastern time on Tuesday August fourth. Those dudes don't feel like they know whether or not. They're still on the team, they've been told that their scholarships will be honored. Know for sure. If, that's what's going on. Right. They literally just don't know bottom line is we heard that coach effectively make a threat. That's what these dudes to stand up against. These the power dynamics that are at play, and that's why say even if you disagree with this, you have to applaud the courage. This is what these guys are up against man. This is what they're standing against in. This is what the uncertainty is that truly all of them face. As, they have made the decision to do this. All of them face this, all of them are in this place and I relate to you what's going on with woods and try not to draw any conclusions for you because there's like some confirmation that I need to do stuff. So I want to be very matter of fact, in the things that I say that happened on his in. But again, he says that he and another player head done a zoom call two or three weeks ago. And told him that they would be opting out. For Kobe. and. They told him about the movement. That's where this is wild. CASSIE would says they told role of each about the movement, but then when the rubber met the road. That's what it turned to what happened in between those three weeks is the question. So look man. Best of luck to those guys were Gabar happens to be but I think it is very important. As, people who observe these. Games and people who do our job? Media Pushes Accountability. Right by responsibility. And these schools even if these players are protesting demonstrating or whatever. These schools are countable to these players and to their wellbeing into a general state of fairness around them, and it is very important that people who do my job. Make sure that fairness exists as best as possible right now, there is literally no bigger story in sports. This bigger than them. What's happened with people coming back into bubble is bigger NFL training camp. There's nothing bigger than this. And if you don't get that, there's nothing bigger than this. I really got no idea why you're doing his job and we as a whole need to treat this like it matters more than anything else that we're talking about. Man. It was nice to see the guys back on the court over the weekend. We're all excited to see what week two of the basketball restart has in store for,.

"No matter how this is I've taught these cats man some of them are scared, but I don't mean that at all as a pejorative I mean that in a very human way, right? It scared, but then our pucks. They are worried about what might happen. They are worried about consequences that they may be forced to pay as some back down in the face of those consequences. But they stood and I'm amazed amazed and look know that this is just how people had been on this issue. I know how much is array so forth and so on. Right? Like I know all this, but it blew my mind after I wrote the story for the undefeated that I. I do recommend you read more information. What I'm talking about here. There was such richer all for some people in response to the players like. Well, if you don't WanNa play then fine. Don't play. You don't mean you too damn excited about every recruiter, Joe Favorite school gets for you to not care if they play, you obviously care a lot if they play. Right. But why are you mad at them for this like this ain't show money. What in the world is there for you to be upset about with them doing this? The only conclusion I can draw is that the people who say this are such cowardly empty souls that within themselves, they stand for nothing that within themselves, there's no back in. There's no foundation, there's no dignity, no gumption within them. And so as a result, they see these people demonstrating that courage. They see people with this level of to marriage and it reminds them themselves. What punks they are. It reminds them within themselves of how much they take and how much they afraid to stand on how much they're not willing to stand for, and rather than admiring the people who have it in them to decide to take these steps they decided to. To resent them for it and that's absurd to me and I wanNA make this point because here's what I'm seeing happened. We spend a lot of time on this podcast talking about the concept of the benefit of the doubt Santa's over and over again, the part will be gotta changes. We disguise style white folks and being out here giving wife does benefit of the doubt no matter what, and that's what we do. And that's an important point for us to make here because the bachelor of Unity Movement has a lot of white people involved right and it's significant places is not an all black movement. I. Want to be clear about that. But what you are going to have here is black people making allegations and black people saying things and why people saying the opposite and folks just believe in the white, peop- and. So an example of that is what's going on here in Washington state Washington state just hired a new head coach Negro, which remember Mike Leach took the job. At Mississippi State right player named Cassidy Jones came in on Saturday to tell Rovic about what was coming with the PAC twelve unity movement. Right, and I spoke with cassidy Monday night on the record so as to be clear about this. This like what I'm telling you some as his recollection. But some of that is obviously fact, right, and we know part of this to be fact because a recording leaked of road talking to him, and so woods goes and talks to relevant and he wanted to let them know that this was coming on. Sunday. So to road which which is just man demand, give them a heads up. So he gave. Gave them a call and I told him about it and he said it all the conversation relevance was like, okay. We'll look if you got cova concerns. That's one thing. But if you here for this other thing, then the program is going look at your stuff. differently. The way put. He says stuff we're gonNA treat it differently. So you asked him if he was opting out, he said it was. Asked if he was opting out because Kobe and would said, yes, and he says, what do you also support this movement and he says, yes, as a of thing is he's begging off Kobe does one thing, but you support the movement. That's something different. Here's the thing though woods made a good point to me for him. They're not two different things and the reason they're not two different things is a major part of the movement is health and safety. A major part of the movement is Kofi, and so here's what I think puts. Puts wrote a vision, the trick bag here, which is you could opt out for cove at and support the movement at the same time. But there are guys who would be willing to play in the face a Kobe, but are going to support this movement to try to make things better. You see what I mean. You can't tidily separate these two things in the way, the road of each wants to do that's before we even get to the fact that it feels like it's very threatening for him to do such a thing. Right. But that's how we wind up here. Now, I want you to see their robots, put out a statement today or last night rather, and it said I spoke cassidy woods and a private phone conversation. Last Saturday. This was before the we are United Group have releases letter of concerns Kassian for me was got the season held to safety concerns. A declare five cassie that his decision was based on health safety. Reaffirm our policy related to Kobe nineteen in the assurance of scholarship without knowing the concerns with the group. I, regret that. That my words cautioning cassidy had become construed as opposition, a proud of our players in the PAC twelve student athletes for using their platform. Especially, for matters, they are passionate about Washington, state football athletes who have expressed support for we are United Group continued to be welcome to all team related activities unless they choose to opt out for health and safety reasons. Now, this is a little tricky for a couple of reasons, right? Tricky reason number one is part of supporting this movement at least in theory involves a potential boycott.

"Right because everybody's taken to same precautions, but the players are talking to each other right, the coaches and the administrators, they not get zoom call. It'd be like man, we ain't feel I pay for those tests they expensive or whatever. The reason would be to somebody might not be test. They're not doing that, but the players they're doing that they're talking to each other and guess what it's scaring the hell out of him players who aren't feeling like they're being tested enough. They're scared because of that. The players do feel like they're being tested enough. They're scared because they gotta go play against these other guys like the guys at the places where they feel like they're being tested enough. Almost, universally say the same thing, this can't be done. This is impossible. Like that's the place where they come from is that this is impossible and so that's the genesis of all of this. That's where it starts is players being concerned about health and safety as it relates to cope. That's where it begins, and so from there they had discussions and there was an understanding and talk about like what the role is. The racial justice plays in this because while we also had this. Guy Talking about Kobe, guys were also getting together talking about black lives matter and about how they felt like their schools were put now statements about black lives matter. But that wasn't enough. They feel like they were really doing anything and I think for them, it also went beyond just like changing names of things. They wanted to see some real meaningful action come into play as related to racial justice, and that's where you get to compensation now from the players that I've talked to in this coalition. Weren't all on board with the idea of centering compensation. They felt like that wasn't a pressing matter like the thing they were really concerned with this keeping US safe in the face, a coke. That was the biggest thing that they cared about. That was at number one, and then like that's what kind of brought this also in the time racial justice, like those are the two things. A lot of players wanted to focus on those two things in not so much. Much the economics of that wasn't the direction that they wanted to go in and I talked to one player though as name's trae. John. Butler at Stanford and I mentioned this in the piece where he said that he wasn't there until he started talking to guys and realize a couple of things, one that they were talking about compensation reasonable way. The other thing was what some things were laid out to them about what the money truly is in college sports. It made sense. You know like they were getting the idea and the. That black players are leaving by a large black communities to conserve this white institution and the White Institution gets all this money and it's making millionaires all over the place while the black people who make it possible. Don't get anything and what covert has laid bare is that. They are the ones who make it happen may with Kobe is done is shown the players just how important they are, and you know how they showed how important they are by treating them like they're not important, and this is what I mean. The players look up and realizing that their lives are being put in danger to get this money. That's just how important is money is like I don't get the feeling that these players believe that everybody involved in this like some. Some devilish figure or anything like that. You know. But they know that those people whom they're supposed to trust are sending them out there to risk their health in the namely getting his month. That is a clearer sign, and these guys ever had a just how important is money because you got to think about this man gas played high school football like the money matters, but the money still isn't really at most places the driving force behind why we have high school football. People are getting money off of it. Right. But it's not the money we're talking about in college, and for these guys football football thought about football in the context. Playing football now is being made clear to them and they expose just how important they are to making this engine go like they realize just what it is, and that's the biggest thing that's happening. So I talked to historian Andrew, Cooper as the cross country run. I was talking about a little bit. and. He's done a lot of research. He's working on visas right now on systemic inequities in college sports, he's done a lot of work with people in organized labor in in things, and he makes a point that they keep the athletes isolated from each other. That's part of it. Part of what makes it possible to exploit the athletes is to keep them separated to keep them separated from the large student body to keep the teams on campus separated from one. Another right, and what happens is nobody understands how widespread the issues are like. One thing I remember I was in Grad. Grad school and it was kicking my ass. Right. As I've told many, I have no problem off on data Grad School. When I was North Carolina. Right like a monster for me. But what I didn't really understand I kinda got, but not really was that it was a monster for everybody make for all of us. It was the hardest thing we'd ever done very few people out of confidence coming front everybody and be like Yo. I'm really struggling right now. You know this is not how it works and so everybody Kinda struggles silently and yeah, you could be working together you. You could be a group project or whatever it is. But some of the depths of our struggles nobody talked about another friend of mine, she was working on a PhD in chemistry at Emory, as she talked about how hard time she was having and how much she was struggling, and then she comes to find out that have classmates, Ron Antidepressants. Right. But she has no idea of this, right? Like nobody's sharing how hard it is, and so that's a big thing that happens is a lot of these guys they out there. They're struggling. They think is just them? You know they. They think everybody else is handling this just fine, and now these guys are talking, they're realizing it's not them. It's kind of like an Amazon factory, right? Yeah. Some sort of factory where everybody is dispersed across the factor Yes. Don't unionize. Don't get together. Don't your grievances with one another. That's exactly it. Right. But what you have here though the next level of something like Amazon football players condition to complain may one player I talked about said, they're worried him about Kobe de is you're shaking off what you've always been told to say if somebody asks something's wrong which is. Why you know and that's a bigger thing, all these guys are taught not to complain, they are Taught To be appreciative of whatever it is that they are receiving, and now more of them can talk than ever. Since more of them can talk than ever everything changes. Everything flips up like we see how many guys make it to the finish line on this right? Because that remains to be seen as possible that every single one of these players who did this will ultimately decide that they are going to play and. And if every single one of these guys decided that they're going to play the moment that they decide to go to play all of us need to stop and tell them, Hey, man I noticed the courage that you show for the last two weeks, right? No matter how this winds up going..

"The Mayflower Christopher Jones died, the Mayflower now without a captain spend the next two years sitting in a harbor, slowly rotting away in sixteen twenty four the ship was in. Such bad condition that it was basically worthless. And that is the last thing we ever hear about the Mayflower at this point, the ship at best was worth nothing more than some scrap. The record is unclear of what actually ever happened to the ship. But it seems like a good bet that the trip to France, sixteen twenty one was the final voyage for one of the most famous ships in American history to finish up today. I want to also go ahead and address the first thanksgiving, I would be remiss if I didn't at least mention this as it is something that is so closely tied to the legend, that has grown around the pilgrims. I'm not gonna spend a ton of time on this, because modestly really doesn't matter for our story at all. However, because thinks is such a huge part of the story of the pilgrims. Let's go ahead and spend the final minutes today on it on Thursday, November the twenty second sixteen twenty one the pilgrims and the Indians celebrated their first thanksgiving earlier in the day there was a community football game with the Indians defeated the pilgrims. Twenty one to eighteen on a last minute field goal by some ascent following the game. The entire group said down to a large dinner after some tense moments debating the benefits of white meat over dark me. Things went ahead and settled down. It was a great meal. There were four different kinds of pie and both types of cranberry sauce when John Billington, totally mildly inappropriate story dreamed hitter. Everybody was so joyful that they nervously just left it off and said it was unable jumping, John. So there you go. That is the story of the first things giving. Okay. So obviously, none of that is true. The event that is widely regarded today as the famous thanksgiving took place. Sometime in the fall probably between October and early November. Also, V members of the Mayflower, plus around ninety of Massachusetts, people got together for an end of harvest feast, the event lasted for three days and was basically a long ongoing feast really there, wasn't a ten more to it. There was a success harvest the Indians. It helped and. So a feast was held face giving, as we know it began to appear more and more during the revolutionary era. There have been periodically times of thanksgiving before that. And that actually goes back to England, but in event resembling with those of us in the United States, this thanksgiving began with Washington in seventeen eighty nine and even after seventeen Eighty-nine thanksgiving, wasn't really a yearly celebration, but rather something that was occasionally called sometimes more than once per year. These events were often called to celebrate major events in the young nation's history. And it wasn't until during this of war that, then president Lincoln may thinks giving into the federal holiday that we all know and love today. So there you have it. The very basic story of the first things giving next time we are going to begin looking at the political developments during the first years in Plymouth. We have already covered the Mayflower compact and today, the beginning of diplomacy with the local Indian tribes, next time I want to begin looking at the government. Stretchers that were put in place in those first years and the long term repercussions of those systems. So until then have a good two weeks. And I will see you back here to continue our trip through Plymouth..

"Welcome to the political history of the United States at one point seven Jamestown beginnings. Good news guys after spending the first several weeks messing around in the always intrigued world of sixteenth century Europe. It is finally time to get to the real story as much fun as we've had bouncing around through the political economic and religious changes Europe. We are finally ready to begin looking at the first group of English settlers to cross the Atlantic and settle in Jamestown before we get into that. However, I wanna give a rundown of what the foreseeable future the podcast is going to look like the popular story of the United States is that of a ragtag bunch of colonies that join together to fight the mighty British army. However, that is something that doesn't really exist right away. The first colony should be seen as more of a collection of independent knows acting separately from each other. In order to approach this. I plan to work through the colonies one by one looking at the unique factors each specific group making their way to America. I think dressing the major colonies one at a time is going to be the most effective way for me to move through the rest of the season. The general plan is to move through each colony and get it up to read around sixteen fifty before moving onto the next after moving through the colonies, I will have a few episodes to tie everything together and address a few other subjects that I wanna hit that is going to basically take us to the end of the first season. Now with all that said we are going to begin this week with the first of several episodes looking at that first colony founded in sixteen seven Jamestown would become the first permanent English colony in the Americas. For thirteen years Jamestown stood alone as the only English settlement in America before the Puritans. Join them with their settlement in Plymouth. The founding of Jamestown is a story of failure. Misery death starvation or an ultimately after facing cataclysm after cataclysm a moderate amount of success. The story of Jamestown is one that will see the con- you become the largest tobacco export or in Europe. But only after surviving disease and war with the Indians and starving that became so severe that. The people were forced to turn to cannibalism. These are just a few of the things that we are going to explore over the next several episodes and today, we are going to begin the lane the groundwork for all of that. Everybody in the United States is taught that the pilgrims. Spoiler alert, by the way travel across the Atlantic to the Americas to avoid religious persecution in many ways, this is held up as a banner establishing the freedoms that would become synonymous with the future. United states. The decision to go to James is fueled by the single most common denominator in all of colonization the hope of funding riches. To begin this week. I want to look at the reasons why people suddenly found themselves boarding ships in heading across the Atlantic. What were their motivations? What were they looking for by looking at what motivated the first settlers to good Virginia is going to tell us a lot about the colony and its future. And this is going to be something we keep coming back to future episodes as we move through the history of James ten in Virginia as a whole today when people look back on the history of the United States. There seems to be a tendency to focus more on the pilgrims, the founders of Plymouth, then there are the founders of Jamestown. In fact, there seems to be among many, a general belief that the pilgrims came across on the Mayflower were the first to settle the future United States, and yet Lino that not to be true for Gina had been settled more than a decade before and affect by sixteen twenty was well on its way towards stability. The question therefore becomes why is Jamestown often forgotten when we look at the establishment of the English colonies in North America. That is one of the questions we are going to be looking at over the next several weeks as we explore Jamestown. What makes the Jamestown settlers different than the New England settlers? To begin this week. I wanna start to look at the conditions under which Jamestown was founded. And who the settlers were last week we discussed English attempts to colonize North America at the Roanoke Connie, well that colony mysteriously disappeared. Also, marked the end of English colonization efforts up until sixteen o seven or the failure of the Roanoke. Colony may have had some minimal effect on the future colonization of North America. The real issue was going to be ongoing English Spanish war the war between England Spain had been a pretty good job of depleting English treasury. However would James the first now empower he quickly brought an into the war with the Spanish through the treaty of London. This means that the funds needed to launch a colonization effort were at last available following the end of the war. There was also a new reality for the English came two privateer. If you recall from episode one point three privateer in was tantamount to state sponsored piracy this become a big deal in the sixteenth century as Spanish. Out to such a huge lead in establishing thriving and more importantly profitable colonies in the Americas. Less time we talked about the devastating effect that privateer in had on the Spanish the easier solution for European powers that were not the Spanish Portuguese listed, turn towards private teary. Instead of forming your own colonies you'd instead attacked the Spanish ships still their goods and sell them as your own backing Europe, the English had just finished up a war with Spain and knew the continued use of private jeering was likely to lead to another war. So specifically in the treaty of lended, what of the requirements from Spain wasn't agreement that England would back off of their privateer practices, at least to get the Spanish be effective. Inappropriate against the Spanish merchants did not reduce however English interest in the potential profit and the items to be found in the Americas. The logical solution therefore was for the. English to auntie colonization effort of their own. As mentioned above with the war over there was a sensor plus a funds in England. This is not to mention that with the war over. There was now the manpower necessary for colonization efforts to be made the end of the were also means that the English had the ability to branch out keep in mind that one of the consequences of the first Benesch armada was that it prevented the English efforts to resupply. Their colony in Roanoke with the war over. However, this concern has been completely mitigated. Economically desire to colonize. The Americas will grow quickly in the years following the end of the war. Shortly. After the end of the war, you begin to see the first joint stock companies for the specific purpose of colonizing, the Americas for these companies are going to spring up with the stated intent of going to the Americas fighting the abundant natural resources and sending them back to England hopefully for profit. Colonisation was inexpensive undertaking to say, the least, and this is going to help lead to the rise of these joint stock companies, it joint-stock company is simply a type of corporation were several investors come together pool their money in order to fund expedition, this has obvious advantages over a single or otherwise small group of investors. It was really expensive to start a colony, and it's always gonna be a long term game. While obviously everybody hope that the new Connie would be founded by the city of gold and conquer the natives all within a couple of weeks. The investors know that this is not a realistic expectation. And beyond that, it was not a huge secret that establishing colonies was a task that came with considerable risk the English investors at a minimum would have been aware of earlier colonization efforts at Roanoke, and what happened there investors would have likely. Understood the profit was going to be slow in coming and knew they should not expect a quick return with this mind. The emergence of the joint stock company makes sense. A joint-stock company is made up of a large group of investors, which means that the risk is going to be more spread out the advantage for the colony is that by having more investors. There is going to be far greater source of resources available which in turn gives the Connie a better chance serving. For the individual investor. There was some real risk involved colonies had been lost previously. And there was no promise of these colonies would survive. However, the hope was that this could be a long term investment. And that if the Connie disavow live, there would be a significant amount of profit on the other side in sixteen six King James issued a Royal charter for the formation of two joint stock companies. These companies were the north Virginia company of London and these south Virginia company of London. The companies were giving a man to make habitation into that part of America, commonly called Virginia.

It sounded like he was taking Marino signed this before all this chemo result, which is co. But the ball have to the ball off to make some sort of a statement to their manager. Lacombe. Yeah, I think Joe's. What'd you think's going to happen here? And he's gonna happen soon. I think. Yeah, I think what he's right. It's Marie-Noelle third season syndrome, though. Everybody's tired, everybody's tied him everybody side of of blaming the players. The players are tired. I think people are the clever tired of him as well. And I just, I just can't think he can finish from renewal United. That's why I think someone it would cost them money, but they have the money available. If we much better for much of the United marina was gone. The thing is for me and yes would what doesn't just say something on something with some kind of thority, but he he's never really established other. He doesn't come across as kind of pushing. So even if he does say something, even if he does make a statement in the some by give any money to spend. That's a statement. My my my thing is if you have somebody that in that kind of position on this is going on in gestion, you need a strongly taking on the trouble is he does not have the thirty. Anybody takes him seriously at all. This feud is dragging the club down, dragging the rest of the plays down as well. I mean, you know, you see the performance against Dhabi candy home. I suggested that losing the Calabro and he's not the end of the world. But what end of the world is a bunch of players who I think are on the side of Pablo. Go state Nikko Craig, Shirley, Shackleton slow Juliana wrong. Thank you very much. Just.

"Welcome insulate sedition of ESPN AFC on down Thomas, my Craig Burley, Stevie nickel and shaggy his Juliana wrong. We'll be with us shortly to give all the latest on the fallout between poor Ponca and Josie marina. But we do as we start the show with Mance United action. They would say on county in the Caravelle Cup, United fairness, strong sidelocks of Lukaku sawing up, and they would take the lead early on through my mind's. However, Dhabi county would get themselves back into the game, United reduced the ten men. They were to Darby going into the ninety. Fifth minute for Laney, though saved that they will materially United with the equalizer forcing penalties. Both teams scored opening seven penalties. In the end, it was down to Phil Jones is central defender though, had his penalty, save. So Manchester United outs of the Caravelle Cup Dhabi county advancing. This continues trend doesn't take a look at his record of late in the League Cup. They seem to either get knocked out by lower league opposition all go on to win the whole thing. Of course, this very much takes the books of them advancing out of the competition. Thanks defeat from team. You would expect them to beat Craig. How about you? A big deal is this I do think is a big deal bearing remained the poisonous around Old Trafford at the moment that the continue continuous public squabbling as publics all very public, something that manages and clubs don't really like or plans, but demand for everybody. And then of course, the news before the game only a couple before the that Marino was quite happy was never going to cut in the side of the gin so not sense. It's a big deal because the last thing marina needed was championships aide. A young. Championship save her by the way and you should starts. You didn't show the starts, some of the show. Dominate the stops throughout the game. Darby dominated for long periods, protecting the second half deplete whale for long periods. Young site, the created chances played football against a team of national players, not the first team, but a team of international footballers. She's shocking. This is just think the whole thing, United poisonous, big deal. Save, not as big as as Craig, no big deal in the league cups kind of point. It doesn't help as hell rate. Now the you'll lose to become whole, really. But let's look at a picture. What difference is going to make them go to me as the on the periphery will not a game, an extra in the League Cup because the road shoulder, MAs, if they beat down because the five, nil, we wouldn't be saying all the words and every figured huge Dale. Asian doesn't help the situation. The actual result for Manchester United club, their stature complained in the Champions League going onto the carbo Cup should not be a big deal, but given the toxically Iran Manchester United, right? No, given what I think there need to put together a decent run. You get a good run. You get a good result against young boys. You come back home, you followed up with the polish. Now you looking for something to build on all the headlines about Josie marina on Paul by what has been said, and what hasn't just put together a decent performance in a decent result. And you get a championship team at home to do that when you need a good performance and result, and this is what you get, and as much as you go down to ten men, Craig check the stats. When Romero went off Dhabi would dominate the possession at that point ready as well at all. Trafford ho. When have we sat here and said that about anybody, let alone a championship team coming to Trafford dominating possession. I'm being. The better of the two teams. Now Lawson failures in charge side. Which is fine. It's signed with trying when you win in the league and you're competing in Champions League when you struggling on you looking to put together a decent run, you need these just you want you take a win any. How would comes on. Fortunately, aside from from young boys, I'm not sure Liverpool Setia love oppo, love appeal a plane tomorrow mindset. You love one of these teams at the moment lost, we would political, and while this Carol can concentrate unless stuff, that's the last thing that he needed was more negatives around in the negativity..
