And maybe it was just the subject i had was very very easy to work with but surprised that reiner was as open to me giving me complete access Because yet he's a public figure but he's also pretty guarded He's a little intimidating but he kind of gave me free rein in free access into anything. I wanted to ask him or have him discussed. He did it so that was surprising. that he was is open and then also surprising where the people that agreed to talk with me on camera about it and how open and honest they were. You doubt. The incident didn't hold back on his thoughts about having a radio station covers sports. Twenty four hours. He didn't work. Galloway was pretty open and honest on his opinions on the ticket and you know his relationship with greco. That was surprising. What was the other question. I forgot well.

W that's where he got his footing but For him to be able to pivot from a producer role in creating the most iconic radio station regardless of format in this market. I thought was interesting. And i hadn't seen anyone tell the story especially the visual medium that i had my documentary about my so. I thought it was a story that needed to be told in. I felt if i didn't pursue it back in early. Part of twenty twenty someone else. Tv tv to it. In a it was just again a story that needed to be shared untold From his birth in dallas to listen to on the radio in his radio influences and just covering his entire his entire existence. I guess not just the ticket but it dates back to his childhood in oak cliff in where he went to school at. And then of course casey w. The was a major influence on him. And i know you do a music. Podcasts that you know. Music is very very important to him. And it's important to me. So i think we shared common bond between our love for sports in our admiration for music. Yeah you know what i i think. It's interesting is I often tell the story when five years ago when i started the podcast. There i was looking for a i was looking for springsteen themed podcast and Ledet corolla who has adam corollas wife had had like four or five episodes where she had talked friends of hers or atoms. Who are springsteen fans and i was fascinated by them hearing the story here. People that Phil rosenthal who did created. Everyone loves raymond but they didn't talk about the show. They talked about just him going to springsteen shows in how much she loves versus music. And i make the joke often when the spirit of lighting a candle instead of cursing the darkness. I'm like okay. Well if i wanna springsteen podcast might make a springsteen podcasts in see what So i hear that a little bit of you. Like i think someone should tell the story And if if not.

I've had different show runners on for tv. Shows will say like if they are someone who does produces a drama they will say they can't watch drama on tv because they can't turn your brain off.

Oh the structure. What they're trying to do here and same thing i. you'll hear show runners of comedians. You know comedies. Going and i wouldn't have worked at joke. And they can't turn their brain off from you know just to be an audience member and so i think that's kind of neat that as you've transition from being a reporter you're able to go back and enjoy it.

They're doing their own job, their child care workers job and their Children's teachersjobs. Professor Jones see Williams is founding director of the Center for Work Life Law at the University of California's Hastings College of the Law. What's your call volume like now during the pandemic versus what it is in normal times. Absolutely unbelievable.

Her baby sitter could not come to the house her husband helped but has a high pressure job, too. Mia had most of the responsibility for baby Logan. How did the company react toward this circumstance that you're in? I worked in a primarily male dominated environment. You know, I started noticing comments here and there that suggested people we're not comfortable with it having the baby on a call with me, or like bringing him onto a conference line. Would make people uncomfortable. So I'm comfortable because they didn't like seeing a baby in a work environment. I just kind of received veiled questions like you know, one does he eat early this year ever sleep, and I also felt bad because I wasn't dedicating the same amount of attention and care that normally would to the staff. It's the caller to the meeting because I was preoccupied with him. It got it got tricky, very quickly. Soon she found herself left out of key meetings. And actually, someone made that comment to me of we're just not gonna invite you because you're off doing mommy duty. Did you ever talk to superiors in the company and say Look, I'm struggling here. Can you give me some relief? I did, and the response was You have to do these things or your career's in jeopardy. And that to me felt like a threat. She finally resigned. But you couldn't struggle anymore. And that's what kills me. Truly. This was a job that I had worked for. For 10 years minimum. Busted my butt to get there. I was better. I was really angry. Mia was able to find a new family friendly job at a similar salary, but not everyone is so lucky. I'm still unemployed. Been a few months and I've been looking every single week.

Go listen to that gave the game a seven point seven five, and wrote as a series paper Mario consistently explores new concepts and mechanics, which is exciting, but it comes with plenty of risks. Origami kings biggest chances don't pay off a satisfying way. I enjoyed Mario's hijinks, and all the misfits he encounters, but the new ring based Action Needs Refinement I hope paper. Mario's next twist on combat can rise to the same level as it's humor. There you go. Kyle did what you asked now. Please time my family. Let them go, please. What else do you want ideas? Cam Shea expressed some similar disappointments, but still had positive things to say about the game, giving a seven and writing the Origami King is a truly likable game, despite the shallowness of its new spin. On gameplay, it's characters are winsome. It's visual design is gorgeous. It's world is fun to explore. Explore and it storytelling is outside the box and playful at the same time. However, it could be so much more. Combat is largely unfulfilling, and your journey as a whole lacks meaningful choices for a series with RPG routes. That's a real shame. EGM's Michael Gaurav shared one of the more negative reviews for the game giving it a three out of five and writing despite everything paper Mario the Origami King is A. A charming game I wanted to fully explore every area of the mushroom kingdom I wanted to find every towed. I wanted to do everything except actually engage with the game's combat system in trying to write basic rules with every outing. Intelligent systems keeps fans of the franchise on its toes, but that can also start to distort the identity of the series itself. How can you perfect a formula if you're constantly pouring out? Out and starting again by the way from the time I started putting this segment together and up to now sitting in my recording booth and recording it. The metacritic score has actually dropped down to an eighty one

The Grand Canyon
"Have you ever heard of the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is the Whitest Canyon in the world and located in Arizona which also happens to be my home state. It's also considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world. The Grand Canyon is two hundred seventy seven miles long up to eighteen miles wide in over six thousand feet deep in places. It's very colorful a combination of reds browns whites and many other colors because each of the different layers or strata were formed at different times during the Earth's history. The Earth is very very old so the Grand Canyon is made up of different rocks from its two billion year old history early on the Grand Canyon was actually a mountain which overtime sunk down until it was flat. Then is the earth shifted. It became a canyon and over a very long period was even underwater. Eventually a river started flowing through the Canyon which is now known as the Colorado River. The water in the river was full of rocks. So over. Millions of years the river acted like sandpaper. Shaving down the canyon this is called erosion today. When you look at the Grand Canyon you can see the different layers in it similar to a layered cake. Some of the layers are white. Limestone other layers are filled with shells from was underwater and the upper layers are dark and reformed by a volcano after the Grand Canyon was formed into what it looks like today around three thousand years ago native people who now call the ancestral publians live near the Grand Canyon. They built homes out of stone and farmed corn squash and beans. They made carvings and paintings on Canyon walls which is one way we know they live there. Another group who lived there were called the co Nina for the ancestors of the modern Yuma Havasu Pie and who a lot by people who still live around the Grand Canyon. The native people call the Grand Canyon. Cab which means mountain on its side. The ancient people believed the Grand Canyon was a holy place and often visited for miles around to experience. It's wonder after Europeans discovered the new World Francisco Vasquez Coronado and a group of Spanish explorers were in the area. Searching for the fabled seven cities of Cipolla in fifteen forty Coronado ordered captain Garcia Lopez de Cardenas and. His soldiers to explore the area they and their Hopi native guides where the first European to see the wonders of the Grand Canyon. They were amazed at its size and fastness. Two hundred years passed until another European visited the canyon in seventeen seventy six to Spanish priests Francisco Dominguez and Sylvester de Escalate into explored southern Utah and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and the eighteen fifties. They were followed. By Jacob Hamlin a Mormon explorer sent by Brigham Young to find a way to cross the river. They made friends with the WHO a lot by tribe and found the crossing discovered by the Spanish priests which later became Lee's ferry. A theory is a place where a flat boat helps wagons and people cross the river then in eighteen sixty nine major John. Wesley Powell led the first expedition down into the Canyon. He had set out to explore the Colorado River and the Canyon. They wrote down the river on a boat and survived the dangerous rapids and finally ended up in what is now known as MOAB UTAH. John Wesley Powell later became famous for the founding of the Boy Scouts of America. In one thousand nine hundred three. President Theodore Roosevelt visited the Grand Canyon and marveled at its beauty. Teddy Roosevelt was known for his love of nature and spent much of his time outdoors in the Grand Canyon. He did everything he could to help. Preserve its natural. Wonder he worked to make it a national monument and believe places like the Grand Canyon should be preserved so people all over the world can enjoy it. All Roosevelt was president. He formed the National Parks Association to help. Save places like the Grand Canyon today. The Grand Canyon is one of the most famous places to visit in the world with about five million visitors every year. Who come from all over to see and explore it. Most people just come to look out over the vast canyon. I've been there a few times with my family. It's about a four hour. Drive from US where we live near Phoenix Arizona. The last time I went we brought our foreign kids who also looked out over it in awe. We had to hold them close to us because the canyon is a very steep drop below which made us very nervous. When I was in high school our family and a group of other families hiked down into the part of the canyon known as Havasu Pie. We drove there early in the morning and had all of our camping gear and food loaded onto the back of mules. Then we hiked about four hours down into the Canyon at the bottom of the trail. The huge picturesque Havasu falls. You can swim at the falls. Jump off cliffs and hike further into see and swim in the waterfalls. Our trip was very fun but took a turn for the worse when one of the days I slept on Iraq and twisted my ankle pretty bad the next day we were supposed to hike out so my close friend. I got up early and started hiking. I live most of the way. Even up the steep switch-backs. It was a rough hike out but the waterfalls and swimming holes made it worth it anyway along with hiking people take helicopter tours over the Grand Canyon love to raft the Wild Colorado River. They also take horseback tours down into the Canyon. And it's very popular. Hike it from Rim Durham. By sisters in their friends. Do this recently. Another main attraction is the Grand Canyon. Skywalk which lets you walk on a glass bottom path out over the canyon so you can look at the drop far

Shannon on Brady says he's not wearing a blazer to the Super Bowl next year
"Tom Already did make it to super bowl. Fifty four but only on the field before kickoff as a member of the NFL one hundred all time team and yesterday Brady posted a picture picture to his instagram story. With a caption. That said I am not wearing a blazer to the super bowl and hexed years so eric where will on radio Tom Brady will be right in New England league. Really definitely. He's not he's not going anywhere. I mean I don't see Robert Kraft letting that happen. Think about this guy has played his whole career in New England his whole career. And you might say that Bill Belichick take wants to get rid of him or they. They don't see eye to eye whatever he does but but the but the owner. That football is Robert Kraft. Robert Kraft loves Tom. Brady and Tom Brady has done so much for for New England for the National Football League. I mean really. I mean you might hate the Patriots. I never like to pay. Even when they didn't have Tom Brady cheating. They were so but anyway He's done he's done so much I just don't see him. I don't go anywhere I really don't I can't I can't picture it. I see he bill belichick leaving before Tom Brady would need I. And that's that's what I would see because I feel like that you know he had a chance to keep Jimmy G.. Bill Belichick did not a chance that he didn't they didn't give him a chance to keep. They got rid of him. And I think that really like this that would have been my chance I I I. I had another dynasty but still the Patriots are a very good football team. This year. They had a great defense. People WanNa best defense. They had a special teams I'm the one that wants I. I got to say Tom Brady. COTTAM S man. I mean big. I mean it's the truth. He got to play play football but he still plays at a high level. They're in a division that they should win. It's not a tough division. They win that division. So they'll be what they were twelve and four this year. They probably two for next year. Eleven and five thirteen thirteen three or something like that so. I don't see Tom Brady going anywhere I I don't see that. I don't believe he plays in New England skip I I don't I can't definitively pinpointed. Plays that. He'll go but I think in order for him he has to go to a place that gives him the best opportunity when the Super Bowl. It's just not about getting out of New England to show you know I I just needed. A change of scenery is about winning Super Bowl. He has to win one coach Belichick First Super Bowl and win. Who is the winner is a simple and ask ask if this was a race between bill belichick and Tom Brady because the days that we're in the same we're having the same discussion? And you have the discussion two or three times next year. WHO's most responsible for the success and so say race the first one to super bowl fifty five to sixty is the winner? And that's what he's GonNa come down to now can he goes. I mean he's looking at it okay. Who has a good outfit? Who has good offensive line? Because he's not mobile like these young quarterback that's up and coming who has never was ause right right early more now that you've got to be forty three that's true who have offensive line wide receivers and a defense so Adams give honestly. I don't see a Peyton. Manning situation paid many got the perfect storm you had. You had a young dicker. You had Julius Thomas No Sean Marino Title Office of line the Wind Got Vasquez from San Diego. You sit and then you bring in a key to leap remember the Denver team albeit with Tim Tebow they had one they won the division. All of a sudden you get to step into a team that won the division in a playoff game and I say okay here we go so now. We're looking at okay. People mentioned the raiders. Daddy make the play the chargers they didn't make the playoffs Chicago. They didn't make the playoff. So all the teams that you know that that sounds reasonable. They didn't make the playoffs. Now you may dimension on Monday. Maybe they said Okay Jimmy you got to go. We're GONNA take Tom Brady for two years. Because we believe at the quarterback position is that where we're that's where we're we're lacking yup. I believe we can get there okay. That would be an ideal situation. I don't see that happening but I just I just think there's been too much blood would bad blood between coach Belichick and talk now. I just give you know. They had the centennial team and coach. Belichick said it was great to just you know shoot. You'll be able to say it with Tom and talk football and they were all took a big picture with all the page format pages but Tom knows he knows you try to get rid of me while are you. Over

I mean mean the pirates. Four philippa vasquez by all accounts wanted a lot and you know you could argue that. There's a there's a stopping point that the dodge jared pat you know like okay. We're not going to go past this point but i think you can also make an argument and arguments. I made at the time that giving up a little bit too much i could have lived with it with the idea of i am trying to make myself as bulletproof as possible. I mean there's no such thing as truly bulletproof but bulletproof is possible possible because i can live with the idea of giving up you know prospect that in a few years would wish was on the team with the idea of i went all all in for this world series more than i'd be able to live with it. The idea of you come up short. I didn't do everything possible. This isn't the best analogy but i'll just say that the lakers if they didn't trade for anthony davis for example right. They didn't trade for a d. Well why did you go get lebron. You know you have to do it right now. If you don't do right now on granted the lakers aren't coming off of two trips to the n._b._a. Finals like the dodgers are two trips to the world series but they left. I think the dodgers left this. They left this hole that if they don't win a world series media and fans will say you had another opportunity. That's the thing come the trade deadline. That's the goal all in and for some reason you know held your cards just because they're they obviously have a reason for it but you would feel like man that's another missed opportunity very sensible front office and to be clear there very well run from incredibly runs even to even to even be an organization that had gone to the world series two years in in a row and you know here we are coming into this season already eighty wins. The numbers speak for themselves. Look there are very measured. Grounded sensible analytical medical front office you know very sober minded thinking very smart and by and large serve them extremely well but like they said in the movie risky business <hes> every now now and then you gotta say what the bleep and this is not a front office with a lot of what the bleep in them and i wonder if ultimately that lack of what the bleep could possibly lead to coming up short again.

And by the way, I don't even know what the weather's like, I I've been out of touch with everything that's going on in Chicago. And actually with everything that's going on in the world. And that's why I wanted to kind of catch up with everybody in our friends and see what's going on. And you know, we've got not Mariotti check in with us in a moment to talk about his input on that letter that everyone's talking about former federal prosecutors who have joined together to say that if they had this kind of evidence against any other defendant or suspect or someone that they were investigating. They would charge them with obstruction. But because. President Trump is the president of and the DOJ has a policy of not indicting a sitting president. They that was why Muller chose not to. He also of my understanding of it is that they didn't want to make a decision because they didn't they didn't want to put it in the report because it didn't want to take away the president's ability to have his basically his say his day in court.

They've got some Rahman what better comfort food than to have some Rama noodles in this incredibly frigid, wet weather jam algorithm. Come in and talk about his road to recovery after being addicted and losing himself to that to that path. And we'll also take a far we want to find out what you guys think about some of the news over the weekend. And honest started off with a headline that I saw earlier today on my friend tens on his website or on her page about it being national hugging day. I trip over that. Because a lot of people who maybe hesitate when someone comes at them with a big hug. I I know I know that you are one of those people. But I feel like I just force my hugged onto you know, you don't. So I welcome them and invite them. But it took me I'm one of those people that I actually had to learn how to relax when people want to hug me. Well, it can be a little awkward. Yes. You know, especially if you don't know somebody in the randomly just coming up and giving you hugs, but people that know me know that I I loved to give hugs and especially in jujitsu, aggressive, cuddles are always one of my favorite things. But I think there's nothing that feels better than hugging. Somebody it's at it's an embrace that that power of like kindness energy. It's the energy row. Are you a hugger row? Coleman is our producer tonight. Hello, hi row. This is James naughty. Doing good. How are you? How do you feel about hugging? I am. A little bit of a little bit of a hugger sparing hugger must bearing hugger. Yes. Be careful with these hugs nowadays. You know, some people just you can't get too close. Well, I think it's got to be confusing for some people to because they're like, well, when am I supposed to hug when is it? Okay to hug very especially fan, right professionally. I remember when I used to go to Los Angeles every month there were there were people who will give you a kiss on the cheek there'd be people. I wouldn't know if we're going for a handshake or hug, so I just wait. You just wait. Yeah. Oh, yeah. We always I mean growing up in an Italian family. It was like kiss on the cheek hug like that's what that's what you always did. But now it is a little bit of a different world. So I think people are a little more hesitant. But you know, hugs are just it's it's great. I always go in I mean professional or now when I'm meeting people like I'm just like, I'm a hugger. And there you go. Do you ever have that moment where you hug someone? You know, you you're meeting with a few people. You hug the person that you know? And then it's awkward because anybody else, right? We'll build up to when I first met Charles Charles Turk. I hugged the two guys that I knew in the group which were Nick, and Dan, and then I go we'll work up to hug. So I think that's one way to put it, isn't it, right? Because he also wants that. Right. Right, right. You don't know if that person wants to receive the hug exactly so you kinda gotta be on the same page, but you know, I think in this world. Now, we need some more love and some as many hugs as we can get. But it really does that energy. I think nothing really can make you feel better than I am a good hug, especially with somebody. You've known care about. Yes. And you know, there are people who like, oh, they seek out hugs. And that's that's great. There's actually I think there are people who are seen this article about the woman who gets paid to cuddle. I I saw this the other with it rose show or somebody was talking about this. I saw this somewhere. Okay. And someone got paid. Maybe it was windy city live. That's where I saw it. And yes, she cuddles. Yeah. Yeah. Coddle? Yeah. That was something different ways. But I I'm guessing there has to be some paperwork involved her clients that this is. This is just an energy thing. If you have trouble napping. Maybe because I don't know. So did how did you celebrate national cut cuddling huddle? Which is a national hugging day. Yeah. National cuddling day seems have more private situation. Yeah. That's seems a little bit different. Yeah. I gave hugs. To everybody saw everybody. I saw everybody. I know. This is true. You did it. Okay. So I owe you a hug. The hug Sino. Jane wells is one of the Cutler's that you are referring to an actual company is called cuddle up to me. And there are several professional Cutler are they Chicago land area, Cutler's or these all over the country. This is a franchise. This is Portland, Oregon. They seem like they would be Cutler's in Portland, Oregon. Yeah. I would be really good at that job. But now that I could do that if you could establish parameters. Yeah. Layout the guidelines. I think that's a good idea. I mean, I know how to defend myself if I needed. Yes, that's true. I think that all professional Cutler's should also be trained in jujitsu. See I connect with those people help them out a little bit. That makes a lot of sense to me dies. We're hanging out with Jen Zanardi, it's motivational Monday. I want hear how her New Year's is going, and if she's talking to a lot of people who still are trying to work on their news resolution, and if you've if you've kind of faltered a little bit to forgive yourself and to carry on so a little bit about that.
