NAACP leader on diversity in Biden's Cabinet and commitment to civil rights
"Speech days after the election, Joe Biden think black voters for helping him win the White House. The African American community stood up again. For many with always having my back on, I'll have yours. Now. There's some concern that Biden isn't making good on that promise. At least seven civil rights groups are pressing to meet with the president elect, including the end of the P and the National Urban League. They want Biden to name or black leaders to top jobs in his administration. Marc Morial leads the Urban League mark. Welcome. Hey, it's great to be with you. Thank you for having me. My pleasure. And if and when you get a meeting with the President elect, what will you tell him? So importantly way look forward to a direct communication with the president elect, and we're gonna reaffirm our interest on behalf of the community that the number of Diverse cabinet members, particularly African Americans. Prominent and every level of the body Administration Cabinet sub cabinet. As well as at the White House. You know, we want to give the president elect due credit. He chose an excellent running mate, Senator Harris. He's made an important appointment of Cecilia Rouse, his chair of the president's Council of Economic Advisors, and Linda Thomas Greenfield as U. N ambassador. But we're heavily focused. What's known as a statutory Cabinet, defense and justice and transportation and commerce and labor and hot and education and HHS, For example, that is where The important levers of power are We're going to communicate that to him, and the second thing will be communicating. Eyes our interest in the public policy arena. We need aggressive enforcement of civil rights laws. We need strong investments through both stimulus. And infrastructure plans, and we need Focus on long term issues of racial justice, criminal justice reform, police justice reform just to name a few high priorities and finally With respect to cove it we need to ensure That the vaccine is safe and effective for all people and that there is a community based distribution system. To ensure that people in our community have access to the vaccine. I guess What I'm trying to understand is if you are actually concerned with what you've seen so far, or if you're just trying to get ahead of the process, As you point out, there have been many black officials appointed to keep jobs in the Biden administration says they're not done yet. Yeah, I think it's both. And I think it's uh they've been to statutory Cabinet nominees thus far. Treasury Three rather Treasury homeland security as well as the State Department, and that's important and we do have a concern and we do want to get ahead of the process and We want to be clear that we're looking for a cabinet. When it comes to African Americans and meets but really exceeds the high water marks of the Clinton and Obama cabinets. This is a different time. And the president elect is made of important public commitment to racial justice, and I believe he's serious about that, but toe execute that He's got to have people who have lived experiences. As well as professional qualifications, along with connections to the communities that have borne the brunt of the country's systemic racial injustice. Look, there's no doubt having a diversity of opinions from all walks of life is critical in any leadership role, but make the case why Race matters so much here. Ben Carson. I'm thinking of Ben Carson, a black housing secretary. I assume you don't agree at all with his policies on many black leaders At the same time, we're saying that outgoing Senator Doug Jones, a white man would make a great attorney general because of his record fighting for civil rights. So let me say this. Van Carson is a great doctor. I never thought Ben Carson was qualified. To be secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. I thought he would have made made a great surgeon general. You made a great secretary of health. Human services. I think it was an example of picking a quote unquote black person and putting him in what some perceive to be a black position at the Department of Housing and Urban Development. And I think it was It was a mistake, and I think it was a disservice to Ben Carson. So I mean, it's important. Understand this is not just about a black face in a certain place.

"John thanks for taking the time to come and chat with us today. How's it. How's it going on doing great man. Thanks for having me. will you give us. I read your bio on your website. But will you give me in the audience of big picture of your background and kind of have to where you are now in. kind of. Give us the backstory. Yeah sir so by education and training or by just sending a lot of tuition money to the university of tennessee. I eventually ended up with a couple of engineering degrees. So i started my career in construction even though that might offend some people when this always used to be an engineer i make fun of engineers used to be one but i got a degree in civil engineering and then a master's in structural engineering and then went out and did the engineering thing for several years and then realized i don't really know how to build anything and i wanted to get out on the job site so transition from i'd say transition from engineering into construction. I really got laid off from the engineering firm. Heart was working for In went and joined project management team for large commercial contractor that. Put me out on large commercial sites Building all sorts of seven are really really like that Did that for a few years than my way. Up working for some architects and then for real estate developer Doing construction management so. I ended up traveling around the country building commercial real estate projects. You know big stores in the out lot developing out lots and all of that kind of stuff in that for several years. And by this time i was married had five kids now so the second kid was on the way my wife was like. I'm glad you're enjoying your job but You gotta stick around mean. I was on the road three or four days a week wherever the projects were so. That was my first business. Started back in. Two thousand five was a construction management and real estate development company. I'm here in knoxville tennessee. So as doing that work here locally then two thousand eight hit and banks were not lending money to real estate developers anymore So i transitioned from there and started a remodeling in general contracting business People these days called a pivot. I didn't realize pivoting at the time. I just time. I had four kids. Three four came back them So put the tool belt on and started a small construction company. Built it up from there and then one of my subcontractors might trim and melwork subcontractor young guy. We went to church together. His business was blowing up because he got into the high end. Trim and melwork work Market here in our area and typical difficult construction business owner great craftsmen horrible business person and he approached me one day and said man. Your i like the way that you run your construction business and everything's always organized I wanna talk to you about how to run a better business. So we met up for lunch and was talking to him about that and giving them some tips and tricks. And and i didn't know he was interviewing me at the time he said. Okay well i think. I need to hire somebody to run my construction business. Much mill work company and He's an acid yeah. I think you should do that. Because you're a horrible business person but you're an awesome. You're awesome craftsmen in great with the guys out in the field and the work was just unbelievable and he just said okay. I want you to do it. And so i thought i was like i got my own thing going on. I'm okay and he's a great salesman and he's like listen. You have a small construction company is gonna take you twenty years to get where you want to be. I'm already in those projects as a subcontractor we've landed some really high end stuff but this business that we just acquired meaning that the projects coming up he said it's gonna put me out of business doing these projects because i don't know what i'm doing and He he so he said I want you to come and run the business. And i thought i bluff bluffing okay. The only way. I'm going to run your business that you let me run the business. You run the field our on the business. But i'm i'm in charge of the business side of it. And he said no problem and he literally pulled out of manila folder with the entire business and it just random paper. Here's the business slid across the table and said you run it and went home talked to my wife and said this is a crazy idea. This is really stupid but my friends gonna suffer and he was right. It was an opportunity to get on some really into high level projects high end projects that i'd already always been wanting to do in such kind of step back and said all right. Maybe we should do this and So bit the bullet went on went. Joined that team as a as the chief operating officer and at the time we had six guys out in the field in within eighteen months we were at twenty two guys in. He was in debt and not making any money. And we kinda turn that around and and that wasn't all me. We had great team a great owner. That had a really good vision and i was just the execute and putting systems in place. Oh did that for about four years and then got another crazy idea saying. Hey what i've done with my businesses and now with this treadmill work business. I think i see the problem here. Within an industry. I can help a lot more business. Owners with systems. All i know construction. It's all i've ever done so after about four years of being the executive there. I left that that job and started writing books and and speaking at industry events and now it's four years later and i've been doing coaching and consulting work strictly for construction business owners since those back in twenty sixteen. So yeah right up for years. We've been doing this Before we move on but are you recommending to your kids. They go to college. You spend a lotta time in college. You said a master's in engineering of some type so talk about that for a second. Are you gonna man. You're gonna make mom hears this. He's gonna get offended. And it. Every time i say but m. i. encouraging my kids to go to college no not specifically i'm encouraging my kids to develop skills in areas that interest them and figuring out how they can make money at it now. Some of those things that some of my kids are interested in now will require them to go to college. But especially as we're seeing in twenty twenty man colleges change. They're still the same tuition rate but they're not allowing you to go on campus and all of the other things that higher said that here's where value is. Now they're saying nope can't come to campus. We're going to do all virtually. So i think the whole world has changed so but to answer your question. No i don't encourage my kids to go to 'cause. I don't discourage them from going to college. The i feel like it's my job as a parent when you're out on your own which i got four boys in a baby girl. I say baby girl. she's five. She's always going to be my baby girl. The boys they're on their own at eighteen. You better figure out how you're gonna make money at eighteen and if that means you're going to college then you know what i took me. I was on the five year plan to get my undergraduate now. Four year plan right but i worked the entire time and paid for most of my most of my college through work. They can do the same thing so And it looked statistically it takes most people at least six years to get an undergraduate degree and only forty percent of incoming freshman even graduate with a degree at all. So yeah do. I encourage them to go that path. Only if it interests them. Only only if that's that's where their future light. Hey you know. One of my kids wants to be a doctor yet. You probably better go to college. I have several of them that are interested in computer stuff in graphic design and other things and got my fourteen year old son this year to start working for a contractor and over the summer and he came home with more money and more cash in his pocket. And said yeah. That's what happens when you go work. And that's what happened with skill so

Who killed Mohsen Fakhrizadeh?
"We start with breaking news. And iran's defense ministry has confirmed that one of the country's top nuclear scientists has been assassinated two diff- of muslim fucker. Saudi is very much proving to be one of those stories in which people will see whatever confirmations of their own prejudices and suspicions they wished to it might reasonably be argued that this description applies in the online epoch in particular to pretty much every story but it is especially the case with stories set in the middle east and which may would depending wh one prefers to believe may not involve israel. So it's best to start with what we know for certain. We know that molson fucker. Zodda was a renowned nuclear physicist a senior engineering of iran's nuclear program and a brigadier general in iran's islamic revolution regard core. He is believed to have been deleted of what was known as project amid the program. Iran established in the late nineteen eighty s to explore the prospects of iranian nuclear weapon and closed in two thousand three according to the international atomic energy agency. We know that he was killed. Last friday near absorbed a small town seventy kilometers east of tehran. And that he was buried with full state on. Who's on sunday law. Main hobby lobby. No optic not that big van owen ruling to the questions of precisely how he was killed by whom there is a bewildering smorgasbord of answers. While it seems clear enough that Was shot dead as the car in which he was. Travelling was the object of an ambush. There are conflicting reports of this assassination being conducted by a posse of live operators. Some of whom may or may not have died at the scene and or by some species of remote controlled weapon monotony iran bit who we bid and me. The enemies of iran have to know that the iranian nation and the country's officials a brave and intrepid enough to respond to this criminal action. As on a has dan in dommage in our yet caught on era by-pass off pigs around as to who might have done it. Iranian officialdom and iranian media have been quick to blame either israel or the mujahedeen e. Cock a curious cultish iranian rebel group which has been a persistent irritant to the islamic republic. And who currently appear to be based between iraq. France and albania. The has also been an amount of copy pasted umbrage directed at the united states or as president hassan rohani of iran prefers to address it the global arrogance on record. Israeli sources have feigned bafflement though the new york times has quoted an unnamed senior. Israeli official is suggesting that the world should thank israel. Four reside is demise. The mujahideen have been reticent. As of this broadcast the iran has yet to present any concrete evidence of their assertions. And if and when they do it will likely be impossible for any independent observers to verify them and iran does reflexively blame israel for pretty much anything it is only a couple of years since former head of iran's military major general signed fear is a body accused of running a network of spy lizards. But it's not like there isn't something of a circumstantial case to answer this year. Several sites in iran which might or might not have been related to iran's nuclear program was struck by explosions which did not appear coincidental and at least four other iranian. Nuclear scientists have met violent ends since two thousand ten to killed by car bombs one by a motorcycle. Bomb one shot dead. In most instances iran blamed israel and israel denied involvement while also making it as clear as it could be regarded even the faintest prospect of a nuclear armed iran as intolerable almost ziff inviting tehran to take the hint and a is at least arguable. Most infact saudis college was marked in two thousand eighteen when israeli intelligence highsted from a warehouse in tehran thousands of files pertaining to iran's nuclear program when israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu announced his feet. He mentioned zadeh by name. A key. part of the plan was to form new organizations to continue the work. This is how dr moosa farkas the of project about put remember that name a day so along with the questions of who and how there is another why in particular wine now whoever killed most fuck resolve will have known that iran would feel obliged to retaliate or at least threatened to retaliate. And that this would make any kind of diplomacy with tehran difficult. Whoever killed muslims will also have understood that a window to such engagement might have been about to open interior. Vashon sean medicare dishman salvage assassination shows. The enemies are experiencing anxious weeks feeling. That the pressure's fading away. And the world circumstances a change a heart. The camby share shadow. It's johnny you're gonna with the swearing in of a new american president who has sounded keen on returning the us to the two thousand fifteen nuclear deal with iran out of which the current president flounced of the possible consequences.

And yes if you're wondering this is indeed the so called. Aaron swartz law quoting politico. The supreme court on monday indicated serious reservations about the ambiguity and scope of the nation's only major cybercrime law hinting.

Samantha Hunt Reads Yiyun Li
"Hi samantha. Hi deborah. Thanks for having me. How did yin li's work. I come into your life That's a great question. I have to say. I think it was originally from the new yorker. It wasn't this story. This wasn't the first. Union story i encountered. Maybe it was extra. This one though sheltered woman has always stayed with me so deeply. There's no easy way to forget it. There's no easy way to feel like i'm done thinking about it. And i've been interested to see how often it returns to me again. And again. And i think that i initially was so attracted to it. Because it's such a complicated story about mothering and mothering. Stories while not rare Ones that are complicated enough to satisfy me are rare that to find a story that questions mothering. Or even that digs in to the extent that this one does where you know we're bringing in themes of capitalism and the effects of capitalism on mothering. I mean. I don't know that i've seen that really anywhere else Maybe in some amazing science fiction but never in a story that dwells in realism. The way this story does and the fact that yijun decided to kind of capture this luminol moment of one month. You know the first month and to take that tiny quiet microcosm and make it into this devastating huge chasm of a universe. I i find that unbelievable right. The story deals with a character who only takes care of babies in the first month of their lives. And who also takes care of mothers in the first month of Of motherhood motherhood is something you have written about a fair amount in your own fiction. Yeah yeah. I am a mother of three and i think that when i became a mother i like most mothers was amazed at how little i knew beforehand. Despite having mother despite being daughter. I knew so very little about how to do this. And the way that it would change my identity the way that it would open me up in a tremendous way and so i. I went looking for literature that reflected that to some extent in. I don't know that i found too much of it. Even the word mother the first place we go is someplace. Really very basic and stereotypical i. You know it's like making dinner making cookies driving mini vans and there's none of that in a sheltered woman and i really appreciated that because i did feel like when i first became a mother having made life became obsessed with death which ultimately you know that makes a lot of sense and yet no one had prepared me for that and no one had told me that was going to happen so i kind of looked for the pieces that dealt with that question and tried to write these stories myself so now. Here's samantha hunt reading sheltered woman by and li a sheltered woman. The new mother groggy from a nap sat at the table is though she did not grasp why she had been summoned. Perhaps she never would anti may thought on the place mat sat a bowl of soybean and pig's foot soup that anti may had cooked as she had for many new mothers before this one many however was not exact in her interviews with potential employers. Auntie may always gave the precise number of families she had worked for a hundred and twenty six when she interviewed with your current employer. A hundred and thirty one babies altogether the families contact information the dates she had worked for them their babies names and birthdays these. She had recorded in a palm size notebook which had twice fallen apart and been taped back together years ago. Auntie may had bought it at a garage sale in moline illinois. She had liked the picture of flowers on the cover purple and yellow unmelted snow surrounding the chased pedals. She had liked the price of the notebook to five cents when she handed a dime to the child but the cashbox on his lap. She asked if there was another notebook she could buy so that he would not have to give her any change. The boy looked perplexed and said no. It was greed that had made her ask but when the memory came back it often did when she took the notebook out of her suitcase for another interview. Auntie may would laugh at herself. Why on earth had she wanted to know books. When there's not enough to fill one. The mother sat still not touching the spoon until tear-drops fell into the steaming soup. Now anti may said she was pushing herself in the baby. A new rocking chair back and forth back and forth this squeaking less noticeable than

King County prosecutors say pandemic may be one cause of uptick in hate crime cases, Greater Seattle Area
"Cases. The number of hate crimes cases the King County prosecutor's office sees has gone from 30 in 2018 to 51 so far this year.

But Leandra Craft, one of the prosecutors, who handles these cases, says sometimes the defendant will claim freedom of speech. We consider what the defendant said to the victim. At the time we consider whether or not there was a true threat and whether or not a reasonable person in the victim's shoes would have reasonable fear From that threat. The prosecutors say they'll often agree to reduce the charge from a hate crime because they could get the person ordered into treatment, which Help prevent future hate crimes. Ryan Harris camo
The Utah Monolith Has VANISHED
"An update on the monolith. You know the monolith the silver column that was discovered in the middle of a deserted cove in utah by government officials last week. Well i despite the state of utah not wanting to say exactly where it was that amateur hikers when an injure themselves trying to get to it the internet was of course able to locate it and some folks used earth historical imaging data to determine that the monolith has apparently been there since at least two thousand fifteen or sixteen. The monolith was located near the filming sites for several movies and tv shows including westworld indiana jones. The last crusade and one hundred twenty seven hours so the going theory now is that it was some type of prop at one point or may be placed there by a crew member for who knows what reason and specifically said was located because it's gone just completely vanished. Here's what utah's bureau of land management said. In a statement quote we have received credible reports that the illegally installed structure referred to as the monolith has been removed from bureau of land management or blm public lands by an unknown party. The blm did not remove the structure which is considered private property. We do not investigate crimes involving private property which are handled by the local sheriff's office the structure has received international national attention and we received reports that a person or group removed it on the evening of november twenty seventh and quotes according to the associated press. Several parties including the salt lake tribune have against the department of public. Safety's wishes traveled to the site and verified that it is indeed gone quoting the ap spencer owen of salt lake. City's said he saw the monolith. Friday afternoon encamped in the region overnight but as he hiked to the area again on saturday people passing them on the trail warned him. It was gone. The tribune reported when he arrived at the spot. All that was left was a triangular piece of metal covering a triangular shaped hole in the rocks ricardo marino and his girlfriend zero van meter were traveling from colorado to california on friday and decided to stop and see the object after finding the gps coordinates online on the way they passed a long bed truck with a large object in the back and he said he joked. Oh look there's the utah monolith right there. When they arrived at the spot it was gone and quotes. So maybe it was in that truck in an instagram post marino. Alleges that in the monoliths place was an inappropriate message. Written in the dirt and quote a fresh piece dane according to the guardian ever since it disappeared visitors have been stacking rocks in its place.

"Wait which is a song. By the way a lot of people don't know Al Wait was written with Michael McDonald From, the DOOBIE brothers Yep. But So Keith. I've asked you this before but I want you to kind of talk a little bit about Alex Van Cause Eddie's Great. We Love Eddie rest and peace, but the other half of the family there is Alex. and you WanNa talk maybe a little bit about Alex's drumming. Yeah thing you're talking about just the overall. Technique I mean he's responsible for. One of the greatest drum intro. Zabol time. Hot for teacher. Yeah. As rock as rock drummer as soon as you hear out of your suck Denman whether. It's an even as a non gummer. You should probably be like what the F.. What's going on there? I mean any kicks into a great. You Know Double Bass duffle. When does this thing I think he's Very solid rock and roll drummer nothing you go down in the you know as the legendary rock and roll drummer I think that he has a distinct sound I think he used a lot in early. Recordings use a lot of tape. So I, mean on his there was a lot of deadening of the drums which is par for the course and that day. I think he sounds like hisself. On a lot of the early recordings and as he grew as a player I think that he started like another reason I like the song finish. What you started is the fact where he's not playing straight screw like the always does a lot of song. He's pretty he's very pockets. He's kind of mess around with the beat a little bit this place in the snare, a lot of places having some like almost like a functioning to it I think he captured Asahi's are great song drummer do Solos and the added a lot of drums. Let. Me Not want I think the time I've seen him he had four bass drums. So I mean, it's just his thing. You know it's Alex definitely going to be good industry as one of those guys that just. When you look rock and roll. Drummer Jesus there on. Sandy's onto mount. Rushmore. But he's these there with the with the some of the top cats you know. Okay. When I think is what? What? What, what are the things I think? My van Halen weren't was they understood especially on the nineteen eighty-four era. The understood. Music Video. They knew how to make great music video. and. Hard for teachers come up many times. Again. In the video. Great. But you guys realize this a song that starts out with a drum solo. And then it doesn't go into the Song 'cause Guitar Solo. Yes. Very Very. Very, non like. It was a song formula me and it's not I I I. It's like here I'm Gonna I'm GonNa. Musically frigging drum your ass off. Then I'm GonNa go into an awesome which is going into the two handed tapping. Into some awesome Eddie Nece, and then we'll go into the song. After. We kick a little asks for probably up to over a minute leaks that couple minutes you know what I mean. You're looking at a few minutes of just asking and then you're going to break down. Part and then can dave comes in and does his Dave thing. So. that. Is Not really like a regular song. He's almost it's not rap, but he's kind of like sort of like telling a story it's talking yes. And then the really the real hook is when. The chorus and everybody loved that you know and it is kind of if you think about it though it is a little Rabi. Because it's about students having wanting to have sex or with teachers and teachers, you know may possibly reciprocating teacher needs a salad that's going. Back back in those days so much different because nowadays you have a completely opposite effect. So A to. That song might be considered like really politically incorrect in today's climate. Not Kill somebody it'd be offended. Let me ask you guys. Will there be any more guitar heroes. Somewhere yeah. Yeah that's should never stops it will come back. I mean somebody will eventually capture the attention of someone else again, and then they'll spread like a fire in a night these that term because the countries burning down but that's a it's a horror that says it's kind of a catches. It'll catch something catch a buzz but. You, see my shirt. You're not woke. You're annoying after. You going to get woke you go broke Yup. But but I mean it was an unusual time when people really were interesting but I was talking to somebody of the Dan I I sort of feel like there's been a second wave of guitar heroes it's just that the. Scene. is a little different but I mean I think he got to put up there Joe John Mayer, Joe Bonte, Masa Derek trucks these guys are like I'm a lot of younger folks really respect those guitar players Roy look up to them and they inspire like Dave. Inspired the next generation and who knows what's going to happen after that? It's it's a different scene. Now, we don't have MTV like we did we don't have the major labels, the big tours and stuff like that. So we kind of interesting to see. What kind of shakes out in the coming years. With music. Statistically. There should be one great guitar player as much as like modern music is getting pulled very far away from using guitar as a prominent source not only would that become essentially an tarik instrument that so uncommon that they can kind of do whatever they want like. The next one will shine so big because there's not going to be these giant flashy Awesome Guitar Solas. Competing with junk. Well there is. I. Think Qatar has gone in my opinion by made I think it's gone to youtube and then there's the super shredders like toes Abbassi and these guys that are just like sick out. He's fantastic I mean dislike can play like and you can hear when does those guys play miniature all the tap I mean You go back to be Kevin you remember Stanley Jordan. Black Dude I mean his whole technique was tapping an came out. That's post van Halen I mean you know definitely in obviously influenced By van Halen. Park cleared up late in the eighties and didn't get. It wasn't influenced by debate. Halen let me tell you some of it was blatant but I mean. Some of its way more subtle I just I want to close I want to leave guys with a couple of thoughts here about about Eddie van. Halen. I've I've gotten arguments about people with this but listen man. Eddie Van Halen not only reinvented guitar playing. He reinvented the sound of guitar all these guys playing really heavy metal the gent guys, extreme metal guys to thrash guys. There was no such thing as high gain and if your guitar player West you know what high gain is there was no high gain until Eddie van Halen started torturing those marshals with the various. And then other ant makers figure out how to do it without blowing up the amps and started building that in that changed everything and all the guys you hear now playing I mean you go to I mean Zach wild dime bag all those guys would we would not have had those guys if it wasn't, for Eddie and all the guys playing today telling somebody in facebook like I said like all these metal dudes are the sons and grandsons of Eddie van. Halen. Whether they have heard a van Halen song are not absolutely you're playing with speed and that kind of technique. He's the guy that set that standard. He put he put that boat in motion he like set it off. And everybody just kind of took it and ran with. You would not have had Warren de Martini..

"I don't like. My all right. I think kind of a foreshadowing of David Lee Roth was going to go with like songs just a Gigolo and that type of stuff like. You've. When you Kinda hear the beginnings of that I think with ice cream man for sure. The criticism that always comes up ice cream. It's a blue song and Eddie van. Halen Solo is so not a blue soul. It's not even close to any kind of thing that any kind of blues player would play. So that was always been the sort of criticism enact Eric Clapton criticized him about that he can't play blues. But a is Van Hill and there is a track though right after this on fire. Played live since the last show by the original lineup which took place on September second one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four. The reasons they think is because they can't may hit the vocal high notes anymore because they are super high and some points of the song. But it could justify heavy metal tag. Because of the way, the singing is and the way Eddie's rifts are. It is heavier than most of their songs. So especially when they're doing the part I'm on Phya. Sounds like it's coming sort of from like. Like the depths of hell sort of thing I think it's pretty cool. There's something about like this not being on the cassette version or something that I didn't look I heard something about that I was somebody can let us know if. That heard I heard that but I think it's a good song. Away with the Song Keith. A. Little Bit I think that it has been on some of the original prices but I don't know if it was added I. do think this song is probably learn more metal tunes of all time. It's really heavy compared to the rest of the album and arrested our library. It's really up there with a lot of like. Their heaviest tunes I mean right now drawn a blank one, hundred heavy but I mean, it's definitely attuned. That would be right there with the heaviest funds whatever ones are. Right I. You know like I mean they they did some serious stuff like mean streets, which is a kind of very kind of intense face not fun. You know more like kind of a serious kind of song. But they they never stray too far from that swagger and that sleaze you know they. Did until until semi Hagar took over. Then Sammy Hagar was all about to laugh love comes walking in. All. Right.

I'm a I appreciate the fact that you guys appreciate me so much but back to Mattie and his jacking off like like, I it to me is weird to me, especially at this time. Let's talk about this for a second. We live in like an apex of jacking off. This is never mash obation has never been more accepted when I was growing up in Baton Rouge. You can even admit that you jacked off you couldn't even talk about it. It'll be like. Like, you Jack off the only person admit that they were jacking off where the white guys actually it will be like fucking. Yeah. Why will by the way why boys back in? We'll say that they jacked off tonight weird shit. It'd be like yell, man. Fucking Metallica video came on. And I just had to go on my that's weird. But but but now everyone talks about it. Everybody is support hub is everywhere everywhere. Everyone's talking about masturbation, I saw some kind of Chinese massacre, but masturbation machine have you seen video right? So you can pay him by that. And put it in your house. Why are you still so skittish about telling the world, I'm not? Van Leith and the person who's a like a character assassinated in the office. You're willing to all jokes aside. I'm being serious here. Because we're got to put this entire podcast on Instagram line this right here. It's all going on Instagram live the whole thing. I'm series the people wanting to TV, but I know you're saying is you TV sees me the people want to know. How often I'm not going to answer. I'm not gonna give you that. Why? I just told you on principle. Why it's I'm going to bet. Yeah. If I was talking to Austin, Shirley, whatever we're chopping it up. We're on podcasts that gets pushed up to tens of thousands of people. Anymore personally office who takes information and uses it against someone as a weapon like like the earth. K forty-seven. Listen, here's the deal. I'm not really interested. Just to let you know. And how much this happens, or if it doesn't happen is not none of my business. But I think it's an important exercise to help you loosen up and help you be more to lose do not. I don't think that you are. And the reason why does a one person office who me tighten up you right now. That's not true. Now, I really think I really. Anyone's office. I'm probably one of the most relaxed even he'll people office. Now, even I'm talking to Harvey. I'm like, what do you need? Okay. Cool right on. I'll get you that right away. Right. And then we, and then you it's it's going to be a tax chain. Or like, you know. Oh, well, you know, it's all brought about this and all about the deal. Do. And here's the deal. I'm saying let's say a seven week span. Live the students to answer. Sunday to Sunday to like Saturday because that's that's that's like. Yeah. That's six days six days. So this is seven it's seven days a week, though. Right. So seven days in a week. How many times would you say I'm not going to question because I had so this one would give you box. I'll give you blocks so ten to twelve. Five to ten ten to twelve five. Yeah. What are you? What are you talking about times?

It's not going to be a full park asked him about to go. I just want to say that the beginning of this year has been bizarre. It's been emotionally taxing Spurs, especially considering what the community of Los Angeles just went through. The one thing that shouldn't and probably won't change is the fact that. There are two things that it's going to take for us to make our lives easier. One is belief and the other one is work. You can't work for something that you don't believe in. Excuse me. Especially Mattru, you shouldn't work for something that you don't believe in. Because some of us do it every day. But you also. If you believe in something you have to do the work. If you believe in it, you have to do the work. Spike didn't just do. Right. They didn't just come together. Spike wrote it. Directed it. But even before he directed it. He had to get the money together had to do all of these steps and what he put forth still inspires me to this day. And may one of the most precious moments I've ever had in my life. So I wanna thank him. I want that my mother, and I want my sister. For not fucking with that movie, generally really fuck with it too much. She likes other Spike Lee movie, she likes crooked, which is. Not as good as do the right thing. But my sister another person who really was I. Instrumental in me becoming a strong person. Because she would do this thing to me to make me tough. What she would slap shot at me every time. She saw me. And that was important. So ebony if you're watching this, I love you. Thank you guys for the happy birthday gifts. We appreciate you. Listen to the repeal. We appreciate you accepting of this little mini podcast. We're not going to give you a whole park. That's awesome. Do you have anything to say to the people? Awesome. Go jump onto might happy birthday. Happy birthday. Appreciate that Maddie. You're gonna raise me a happy birthday. Appreciate it. John. This is going like one by one. Well, I'm not I'm asking because the reality is that I put all this out there in no time any of you guys say happy birthday to me. I know, but we're doing it now and I won't be here Tuesday. If my vacation requests got got approved. So I won't be here. So I just thought maybe you guys would want to say that now, but once well now fucking now fuck that shit. I'll wonder happy birthday from you mother fuckers. Now, mama. I love you, dad. I got a million good stories to tell about you. And they will all be told including the time that you told me it will be shameful for me to be a version that sixteen. We're going to donate an entire podcast to time that you told me you don't want to be sixteen and being over arching. Then he says, okay. If you're going to be having sexual let's go get some condoms, and then we get the condoms, and then he says, I am buying them. Condoms for you to be snapping them off. I know snob onto putting them on like my dad was of shared. I was gonna masturbate in the congress, by the way, condom masturbation was a big deal. Did you guys ever do that? Maddie's like, you never Jack off by that little I I'm serious like is. It's like that's weird. That's weird that like people listen to this. And they think yo what kind of weirdos is van working with like this guy always asked like there's something wrong with it talking about if I've ever just talking we're talking to no one here is because you manage. I don't check off Mattie seriously. So how often do you do it? Why wouldn't you ask? Can we hear? Well, like mighty like, why wouldn't you? But why wouldn't you? Mattie doesn't want to talk about this matter to get on the mic real quick get on the mic. Why what's so? What's so fucking terrible. No. I'm talking to people. I just shut homework. I guess I'm gonna say. I'm going to say about this what working with van this is what he does. He he doesn't vans. Very nice guy. I'll get the nicer these out of the way that you very nice guy actually really does care about reintensified on conversations with them. But the thing is you have to be you had to have one. I open all the time. Because anytime you talk to van he's just looking for something he can use against you like as like this ruthless. Like like, I'm trying to think of like Napoleon. Try issues years trying to get anything out of the conversation that you can use the make fun of someone a week later in front of in front of someone. They I made the they they like or the idol is, you know, in front of their boss. Listen, let me tell you something. How many times have you saw the awesome story about him being high? You know, the reality is that I saw Austin.

I'm gonna give you the story. Of a seminal an important moment in my life, seminal and important moment, not just in my life. But in the life of me, and my mother and the beautiful relationship that we had the day that I realized something and the day that she realized something, okay? This was I believe in nineteen ninety ninety or ninety one. My mother, and I are sitting down. And we are watching Duda right thing. Now, if you haven't seen do the right thing before it's a great movie directed and written by the visionary talent, Spike Lee, starring spike himself. Then ELO Jan Carlo Esposito Rosie Perez. The great Bill Nunn recipes a a sort of cameo is role from Samuel Jackson. He's in that movie as well. Fantastic. Cast fantastic movie amazing amazing cinematic achievement. I'm sitting down. I'm watching this film with my mother, and at some point in this movie, my mother, and I actually even tell this. Then a kid I was ten or eleven depend on was year. It was can't remember the exact year. I I saw my mom was into the fact that I was into the movie think about it think about being a mom, and every time your son has control of the television. You gotta watch he-man you. Gotta watch masters of the universe. GI? Joe camp. Candy, the go Botts voltron the thunder cats. You don't want to watch that shit. It's okay. Maybe four five five or ten minutes. But after a while you're off it every once in a while, we get together as a family, watch hall of nice trading places, something like that. That was for everyone. But most of the time when I had the TV she doesn't, but in this particular case, I'm watching something with my mother, and I'm enjoying it. And she's into the fact that her kid is enjoying it to her a little babies growing up. So I'm watching a movie I'm getting all into it. And at some point, my mom who her greatest superpower is the ability to know when it's time to teach a lesson. Like, my mother is good and great and wonderful because her mind is directly connected to the spirit of God. And so when she gets a quickening she gives it right to you. Hey, this is what you need to know in this particular point. This is what you need to know at that particular point. She's good at that. She's divine like that. She's awesome and amazing like that. So were sending down we're watching the movie, and I'm into it. You know, pretty soon. Rosie Perez is breasts are gonna come up on the screen. They're gonna change my life forever. And my mom lives in michi- says. Did you know that Mookie movie the guard there his name is Spike Lee? He wrote and directed the movie. I'll look at my mom ago. What does that mean? By the way, I just let my lips and I'm hoping. When I lick my lips right there. They were a little dry, and I'm hoping that the first part of this. I didn't have Ashy lips because there's nothing, but why boys here right now. And they wouldn't know them out. Not my little ask you're not. So if my lips were Ashi for that entire time. I apologize especially to my mom who no matter how beautiful this story is the that. She would call me up and talk to me about was the fact that my lips were asked you the whole time. I was telling it doesn't matter. What I say about her don't matter. How nice it is. If you tell a story with Ashy lips. You're not going to get through my mom, boy, you out there in LA. I know as Wendy I'm gonna send you five boxes of carmax us all motherfuckers anyway. So watching the movie my mother says she says Mukhi guy, Spike Lee, he wrote and directed this movie. And I'm like what does that mean as she says? Well, you know, how you write stories, my guess, she's like a tell you about story. I wrote one day to get me in trouble in school. She's like, you know, you're always. Yes. So he wrote the story that they're all acting out and. Director that means that on the set when they're shooting a movie he's the guy that stands and tells everybody else what to do. So if you see the camera superman from somewhere, he set that up everything that they're talking the way, they talk holiday talk. He is in charge when they're on the set. He is the boss. He is the guy everything that you see comes from out of his mind because he wrote it and then he directed. He gave the movie is visual. Look it's pace and his town. My response without missing a beat to my mother was. They let people do that.

"And then said that doesn't change the fact that people are fucked up to women every day. He said, I'm still pro me too movement. I am still pro time's up. I am still forgetting all of this stuff out of the culture. Even though I went through this and it made things hard for me. I have a daughter, and I want a society where she can walk through her neighborhoods and her community safely. Now, if this man who actually went through this can have the foresight to see how important this is. Why can everyone else I'm not even going to say the name of the person that is making me go through this whole little rant because you all know it. It's been all over the place known about this guy for years don't need to go back and relitigate everything that's going on with him hurt these stories when I was fifteen sixteen years old when he married a kid. That's something different. When I'm talking about is the response also social media from people who are doing this. What aboutism to a degree that makes me wonder if they're fucking brains work. Like if they get the seriousness of what we're talking about. Because if we're talking about building everything else how we going to do it without the women that built us. Every single black woman built all y'all every single last one y'all brick by brick probably the only one that cared about y'all. I know I'm sitting here. Speaking to the soul of my mother. I'm talking to you with her mouth and her tongue. I'm feeling with you with her soul. She gave me everything I'm giving you my dad gave me my backbone. He gave me my principal. Everything else. I got it from my mom. So if there was a time when she could walk through south Baton Rouge having to look at her abuser in his face and couldn't do anything about it. Why me as a man am I gonna let that type of situation? Be pervasive at the time that I can control it. Listen. We've all gone through it together. I've been unfairly detained by the police. I've been a victim of racism all this stuff. I'm from van Rouge, Louisiana say that every show say this show every. Aspect of racism that you can imagine happening too. A black man that's happened to me. I haven't been lynched. Thank God that you know, I was born in nineteen eighty I missed that air, even though they still do it to today man, this fucking tough out there. But. That doesn't mean that in every single instance of injustice, my response is going to be what was me. My response is going to be man, y'all hard on the black, man. My response is going to be not a child done with this black man while you know, if it's fucked up kill it. If it's a virus curate. If it's broken put a cast on it. Don't matter. Don't matter the color fix it and don't fix it for us fix it for our sisters fix it for women period, fix it. So we can finally fuck and be done with all it is. This is tiring. And it's dangerous for them. It's life or death. It's worse than death. Sometimes when they're assaulted when humanity is taken. Like, let's fix this. Let's stop equivocating and being fucking cowards about it, y'all. Brave enough to do everything else, which I'm not brave enough to look at this issue. Not brave enough to take a step back. Saying that situations were untruths and lies. Don't happen. We know that they do. Both on a high profile and on a low profile. We know that they happen. But I'm saying go and speak to some of the women around you and ask them have they ever been sexually assaulted. It's fucking scary. It's scary. And by the way, go talk to some of your homeys and ask them if they've ever sexually assaulted anyone? That's fucking scary. Have they grabbed the ass. Have. They pulled a titty out. Have they? Grinded. Have they done whatever as that? We got really this, man. We gotta stop this. We do. And it's not about any specific special is not about any specific person is about working every single day..

"Yeah. Local van lesions the repeal where we give you the brutal reality of truth base. Guests all about truth. Love his guy Aaron foster former all pro NFL running back, but really thought later man, really a guy who. Really has one of the most brilliant dare I say beautiful minds Indian tire culture me area and talk about so many different things there so much. You can talk to this brother Abou, we'll talk about sort of the issues that he has with celebrity news culture, and how hard it was for him to walk into this building to do this podcast. We talk about issues with religion, Aaron is an outspoken atheists. Of course, I love Jesus. So we have to talk about our differences there. We also talk about his experiences playing football, and how his intellect wasn't well received during his playing days kind of how he had to work a little bit to make people realize just what he had to offer coming out of his brain and not out of his arms and legs and all that stuff like that. And sort of how the? A professional athlete and sometimes can struggle a little bit too to redefine themselves. He's done a fantastic job at a at carving out, a whole new source of relevance. And it's not something that it's easy for athletes to do. But when you're talking to someone with the deep wealth of knowledge aerienne has with the conviction in the passionate. He has about issues from the social to the metaphysical it's easy to see why he's been so successful in doing. So it was one of our best podcasts. One of our best conversations. Definitely talking foster so much. So that I can't really even summit up. You guys are gonna have to listen to do is really something else. Now, I wanna talk about two stories that I was told when I was young kid when I was about fourteen or fifteen my mother told me a story. My mother told me a story that story was about. A time that she was sexually assaulted. She knew her abuser. She. Is she had to see him in? Her community for very long time Nali that her abuser happens to be father of a childhood friend of mine, and that's the way that this situation came back up. My mother told me this story when I was really still formulating my ideas on. How relationships between men and women are supposed to go. When you have your boys and people in your surroundings, telling you one thing, and when you have the people that you respect love and look up to trying to shape your mind to understand and behave in a different way. My mom shared this with me, very difficult for her, and it forever changed the way. I look at women knowing that that had happened to her knowing that she had been through that. Made me very wary of ever hurting someone to the point to where I actually four while became pretty scared of women pretty scared of being misconstrued or taking the wrong way or or been in any way, someone who could who could do something like that. And. Sort of. Remember the moment that I realized that her life had always been about being my mom that she had had to navigate this world as she had had to go from place to place in it with no safety net and the safety net that she'd already provided with me the feeling of safety in the feeling of comfort and the feeling of.

"Stan Van Gundy in with us as he is Wednesdays during basketball season, we will get to his hot nuggets is hot basketball nuggets in your face in a second. But let's go around the room, and guests, you guys have a theory or a guess on where STAN Van Gundy side in the Kyrie Irving debate. Where Murray's going for fifty at the end of the game all of a sudden Kyrie's flipping out about unwritten rules, and that you're not allowed to shoot. When the other team's not playing defense it guys trying to get to fifty do. We have some predictions here before I go to STAN Van Gundy on what STAN Van Gundy opinion is going to be on this. He's not happy with Kyrie not happy with Kyrie. Why just because you can't be throwing balls into the stands? Okay. Do you have a theory here on which way, this is going to go? We did this on Instagram live. So I'm going to recuse myself. Okay. Mike Ryan, what about you? Both are. Wrong. Both are wrong both of the players Murray. And Kyrie Irving are wrong. That's my take that his that's going to be his take ROY. Do. You have a do. You have a guest. Yeah. He's going to side with Kyrie. Don't try to run up the score me. He's gonna crush all Murray. All right. So that we've got every option is taken. Let's see which one stand. Choose not every option someone wanting to say, he's not gonna have a problem with it. It's cool across the board. All right. Well, that's another one of the options. Alright stan. So which is it. Well, look, I mean Jamal Murray maybe shouldn't have taken the shot. But I don't like people crying about you know, guys running up the score and things like that. What kyri should have been upset about is that Jamal Murray got forty eight on him. And if they got their butts kicked, that's what should have upsetting the rest of that stuff is stuff. I'd never complained about Bobby Bowden. I think said it best when he was at Florida state the responsibility for not getting the score run up on. You is the team that's getting beat. Well, it's so strange. Kyrie Irving is reacting like an old person. Isn't he twenty six? Well, he's look he's frustrated. I get it. You know, everybody on that team. Anybody would be you know, you got beaten. You're good team in Boston season hasn't gotten off to his great start as you know. Like, you thought it would then you're getting beaten and the guy had a great game against you. You're frustrated. That's all it was. So I don't read too much into it. But you know, look he shouldn't have shot it but come on. I mean, that's not the issue. The issue is we got to play better in and get a win. Stan you say he shouldn't have shot. But why not? I mean, it's Jamal Murray hasn't had much to be happy about over the last couple of years what I'm trying to get his fifty. I mean, why not get fifty? I mean, look again, I wouldn't have if I was on the other side, I wouldn't have any complaints. But I would if that were my guy walking off the court, I wouldn't make a huge deal about it. I would just say look, that's just something. You don't do in that situation Dez Bryant has signed a one year contract with the saints Dez Bryant is going to be a Saint. But we segue seamlessly from that putting STAN van Gundy's nuggets in.

"Yeah. Van Leighton's the red hill. Hebrew reality. Fantastic. Guests on the podcast, David before we get to our fantastic guest who I've been a fan of for years and years and years. I wanna talk about the most important thing that is happening today, which is today is the vote. It is Tuesday, this podcast is being uploaded. It is Tuesday. The vote is today and in several states district's counties around America American citizens are going to have the opportunity to make their voices heard to decide the way they want their future to go. We talk incessantly about what's wrong with America. We know as a community as an American community as a black community as Latino community as an LGBT community on as a transgender community. We know exactly what's wrong. There are candidates out there right now that are standing for and pushing plan. Forms that are about what's right? The you have advocates. You have people who are progressive who are willing to listen, and who are also willing to reach across the aisle to people. They may not actually agree with to come to a word that Americans have forgotten compromise. There are certain things that we can't relent on. But then there are other things to where a little bit of their voice needs to be hurt and a little bit of our voice that needs to be heard now on anything that's dealing with our humanity in our civil rights. We ain't compromising shit. But in terms of the way, the country is governed from a fiscal standpoint the way the coverage country's governed. You know, from I guess a social standpoint there are things voices to be heard on both sides of those and we have candidates that are pragmatic enough and even killed enough in a in a multitude of different places that can do that. There are two races. One in Florida one in Georgia where you have some fantastic candidates, Andrew gillum and Stacey Abrams. There's of course, a gigantic race in Texas Baidoa Rourke, we have to do more than just. March and protest and tweet and re tweet and like and follow we have to take an active interest in the political process in order to place advocates where we need them to be is voting. A cure all to what ills us? Absolutely not. Is it part of the potion? It most certainly is. And it's a vital part of the poaching. I am urging people in Georgia urging people in Florida get out support these people who are dedicated to the future of your state who are looking to reverse things that have directly led to the deaths of African American youth. If you if you're talking about standard ground laws and things like that that allow black men to be executed on the streets, Florida while their assailants have. Absolutely zero repercussions. We know what went down down there. We don't have to re litigated that you're talking about a guy who wants to reexamine that who wants to say, you can't be provoked. And then followed follow Jace van provoked, and then lend to a confrontation didn't shot and then have that person cop a plea. They're all kinds of issues that Andrew gillum. Stacey Abrams are championing all types of they need you to help them. An I'm urging you to get out and do it not just those who racist does of the glitzy ones. The ones at the top that everybody all the celebrities are talking about I'm talking your state and your local governmental elections that are going on right now. I'm talking about the issues that affect your community, the people that have pledged that they are going to be there for you empower those people than hold them accountable. This to me is the moment where we're gonna find out if everybody is actually about what they say, they're about this to me is the moment where worthy to finally see which communities, and which people are actually dedicated to the advancement of their cause. Because it doesn't take any effort to get up and do this. They're they're counting on the fact that you won't they're banking on the fact that you don't care enough that you're too lazy. And that you're too distracted to get up go to that polling place and be a part of this American process. They're banking on it. Don't let them win. Listen apathy is not the answer. It's not the answer. Not participating is not the answer. Standing on the sidelines is.
