So I think Baldo. Parents and other family members love to do that Oh. You're so beautiful. You're so cute. You're so pretty make sure you're also advocating for how's your grades? How are you smart and you read this? That start advocating for for well rounded young women as opposed to just tell them acute on. Yearly well.

Every person's like, oh my gosh she's so pretty it's just the first thing that people talk to your child and say, so it's up to you as parents to give them the the well rounded side to be like, oh no, you're not only pretty what you're going to be smart.

Vance junior seeks eight years of the Republican presidents, personal corporate tax records, but has disclosed little about what prompted him to request the records other than part of the investigation relates to payoffs to women to keep them quiet about alleged affairs with trump. In a court filing Monday though attorneys for Vance said, trump's arguments that the subpoena was too broad stemmed from the false premise that the probe was limited to. So called Hush money payments this court is already aware that the assertion is fatally undermined by undisputed information. In the Public Record Vance's lawyers wrote, they said that information confirms the validity of a subpoena seeking evidence related to potentially improper financial transactions by a variety of individuals and entities.

You Dont Exist. But You Actually Do
"In this episode, we're going to take a simple useful down to earth stroll through one of the most confounding liberating concepts in Buddhism. On. The one hand. Buddhists. Tell us the self is an illusion. You don't exist. On the other hand they tell us well, actually on some level you do, of course exist. So which is it? The answer this frustrating the answer is both. But this concept which is called not self selflessness Igla snus or emptiness. This concept does not have to be some hopelessly esoteric riddle. It is actually a game changer that we can all apply in our own lives. Here to tell us how to do that. Guy, Armstrong, who has been a meditation teacher in insight tradition for decades, he's written a book called emptiness. He is the husband of Sally Armstrong who appeared on the show just a few weeks ago. I. Actually conducted the interviews back to back last fall. But. Even though this was recorded before the record events twenty, twenty, the concepts here in our I, assure you. Perennially us. So here we go with Armstrong. Well, nice to see you again, thanks for coming on Nice to see you Dan. So the latest die back into your. biography, just a little bit. What was it about back in the seventies about meditation? No. What was it about your life that the practice of meditation and the? Teachings of the Buddha, such a big deal for you that you actually. You. Had Gone to a fancy college if I recall rice in Houston and you've worked in Silicon Valley and you were teaching at a alternative school in Palo. Alto. You basically put all that to the side and became, as you said, a Dermot Bum. Why? Well, it was two things I'd had a long standing interest in Buddhism. Really from my college days, it just spoke to me philosophically in a way that no other system ever had. There was a depth of precision and accuracy the really resonated with me, and the second thing was I was not very happy in my life at that time, I came out of the sixties and my life was really unsettled and I I did a little too much of all the things that people did too much of the sixties. Victor. and. So I was still trying to put my life back together and I never felt invested in the worldly things that I was engaged in. So this Dharma practice came along and I remember sitting on my first retreat. And I reached into a level of stillness of mind that I had never felt before. and. I think what struck me at that time? Was the basic. You could call it in this. You could call it space that meditation. In my mind I felt anything is possible in this place. So looking back now on that experience, what I tapped into was the basic emptiness or you know more congenial word is openness. Of Our mind, our basic situation I saw anything was possible. And I. I must admit I was really drawn by the concept of enlightenment. But there could be transformative moments of insight that would change your life forever you know in a positive way. said two things in there. I WANNA follow up on. We say anything is possible. Do you mean you could play for the NBA? You could learn how to fly. What do you mean when you say I, don't suspect you do to what do you mean exactly when you say anything is possible in that space by meant that the mind could be. Shaped or formed in any direction one wanted I just saw this vast potential of the space in the mind that was revealed through that stillness. And I knew that any degree of suffering that had come into my life didn't need to be there.

Helping us with that episode. Doing a bit of dialogue is my friend Molly Victor from well. She's the creator of stoop kids, stories, which is an awesome podcast. Part of kids listen highly recommend. Check it out. Be sure to stick around for some songs at the end and patriotic shoutouts and a little bit of fun hiding out there promise. Let's get started. Robbers didn't scare fields. Wolves didn't scare her either. She had held her own against many even deadly cold weather was of little concern to her. Actually for that she had developed a little trick to stay warm and not freeze during these particularly perilous nights to keep her blood pumping, and your temperature up Mary would pace around her wagon all night long to keep from falling asleep. She figured if she did fall asleep in the cold, she might not wake up. A night without any sleep was definitely better than a morning. That never comes as you can see. Mary took her job seriously she had made an oath to the United States Postal Service and had become the very first black woman to have a postal contract and a carrying route with her wagon and team of horses she was responsible for hauling mail and freight through remote areas of Montana, meeting the train and cascade and navigating to Saint Peter's mission. This is how she earned her nickname stagecoach. Mary the fact is she didn't take that horsedrawn wagon to get mail and freight until she was well into adulthood. For most of her life, she wasn't stagecoach Mary at all, but instead Mary, fields. She had been born on a plantation in Tennessee around eighteen, thirty two was never sure about when her birthday was. Like the rest of her family Mary had been enslaved. Forced hard labor in the field was the fate of many enslaved men and women at this plantation. And Mary grew up to be a powerful young woman who worked beside the powerful men. She was tall over six feet by most accounts, and she had a broad, incredibly strong. Now, eighteen sixty five brought an enforceable end to enslavement in the United States, and while many emancipated men and women stayed near their families and friends. Mary immediately left Tennessee in search of work. She I found it on the river during Poker Games and bull sessions later in her life. She liked to tell the story of her job on a riverboat. The Robert E was a steamboat named after the confederate general on which Mary worked in eighteen seventy, there was a famous steamboat race down the Mississippi River from Saint Louis to New Orleans between her boat and another steamer called the NACHOS. Nearly, everything moved at a slower pace in the eighteen hundreds. So it might be hard for us to understand the excitement of a race travelling at an average of fourteen miles an hour and stretched out over several days. Wasn't a slow as molasses, but it wasn't far off. Nonetheless, Americans paid attention. The plotting pace of the race lent itself to the. Of the day, as the steamboats paddled in pushed their way down the river, small towns with Telegraph, the time, each vote passed by two newspapers, print and several daily editions. As exciting as it might have been to track the progress in the morning and evening editions of the newspaper. It was certainly more exciting to be at Mary Shoes, which were on deck or at sometimes below deck by the boiler of the League. She were called the crew feeding the boilers with anything. It would burn to keep the steam earning the paddle wheel. They ran out of wood for the fires. They'd stoke it with other things broken up furniture old clothes, even somebody's desk. What ever it took to win the race? She said to that end. They actually through a whole side of Bacon in the fire. That greasy smoke may have been the key. The League won the three day race by six hours not long after this through the connection of a passenger. Mary went north for a different, even slower paced work. She arrived in Toledo Ohio for the job. At the Ursuline Convent of the sacred heart she served as groundskeeper Gardner, and handled any other jobs for the community of nuns who lived there. In exchange, the nuns gave her a room board and a paycheck Mary definitely stuck out amongst the backdrop of Solomon religious ladies, sharing space nothing about the holy environment could stop Mary from yelling at them or anyone else. Who messed up her meticulously kept landscaping.
"Oh, oh, Hey, we're on! Hello, everybody! My name is Mick Sullivan and welcome to the past and the curious.

Harry & Meghan Called Whiny Brats
"Hey guys happy Monday and welcome to daily pop. I mean a- Parker joined by so my favorite. Silvester Aunt Victor Cruz A. You know we are going to go in this morning. Because someone is calling, Harry and Meghan tone death, whiny Brat S-. That person of course is Pierce Morgan who else pierce like the rest of US got a first look at the new book about the royals called finding freedom. It's a very personal and intimate look at their lives, and in today's Daily Mail Pierces the book. Confirms Up There Rawls, most that they are the world's most tone-deaf, hypocritical, narcissistic, deluded whiny Brat long to say. Do you guys agree with his assessment? Not even close not even close when you look at Harry and Meghan. You have to understand this okay. The royal family didn't work I. Think I think Harry First of all was just. He's a person that likes to spread his wings. He likes to do what he wants to do. And it just so happens that he found a partner that is rotten with him and wants to do the things he wants to do so look. They separated from the Royal Family I. Get it, but they still got to bring in the coin. So of course they're going to drop a book. Of course, it's going to be things about their their intimate parts of their life. That's going to be in the book. It has to sell copies, but do I think they're whining brats, because they're kind of letting people in into their loz little bit absolutely not coming from someone who has a New York Times bestselling book myself. You can go pick it up at Barnes and noble. You can. This is what you have to do to. You gotta give people a little bit of something personal so that they can go in and buy your book. That's what this is all about well I. I brought I bought. Cruise Control Victor and there was nothing personal in it, okay? We'll let me just. A REP from hearing. Megan told us that they did not contribute to the book. So this is not fair book. This is an author that claims that they spoke to over one hundred sources, which is how they got such personal information, so the book is about them, but they didn't write it. The sources gave them all the information from today's Arthur. First of all. Nina, you know as well as I. Know working in this business. We know that every celebrity has a few henchmen. You know my name on it I. Don't want to get my hands dirty, but wouldn't it be crazy if you're over? At TMZ found out about this personal detail. Look the thing is I do ride for Megan Harry? Understand everything that's going on with them, and I feel bad for them. However, the one thing that was missing in this book was them taking accountability for at least one thing. That's the only problem I have with. This I could see where they felt like they were trapped. I could see where they felt like they had been turned against, but they're just not taking accountability for anything at all. It's not their book. It's not their book. How do they take accountability for something? They didn't right. Come on, come on. Kirk five written. Book. Does like her five germ ability. If you decide to write something about my life, I don't have to take accountability for anything. It's not my book. You wrote it. But it's there. It's still going to come out and it's still going to be things in there that are probably true and depending on what those are. They should probably own up to a couple of those, and it's not anything wrong or anything bad about them. They're living their own lives right now. They're doing what they wanted to drink, so I wouldn't mind owning up to one. Maybe two of those things that are being said is. Is a lot because they don't want to go. This traditional route and I also think that there is a huge disconnect with how it relates to a lot of this because she's American because she's a celebrity from America and she had a different way of life, and also because she's a black woman, and I feel like there's been a lot of insensitivity to hurt that regard for how she's been treated in the press the way. Way that she's been treated compared to everybody else has been completely different because they didn't have to deal with a lot of the same type of headlines that she did. She felt very triggered by the way that she was treated by a lot of the press in Britain, because of the fact that a lot of it was race baiting a lot of it was. You know saying things that were really offensive to her, so of course. Course she's very defensive when she's dealing with that. And then also the fact that she was very popular coming over there, and so they were saying that she was kind of taking over for him, because she she was more popular than K., and that's to be expected so a lot of it, not that it's not her fault, but it's like look if my light is shining bright and this overshadowing. You said you'll came up, don't. Know Tena. Not that Nina I totally get it at the same time. If you're walking into institution that's been built for hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of years. Sometimes, you gotta learn the ropes before you start stepping out before you get crazy now. Not saying what she did was wrong I just would have played my game a little bit slower. I would follow. Call before jumping ship and surprising and enrolling up on the que-, being like hey, all we hear from Canada. Talked about Leonardo's. Popularity grew like that. It's not her fault that the attention came to her the way it did when she got there. It wasn't her fault, and it's not that she linked up with Harry who was riding with her, and it was like you know what we're doing this on our own less rocker
Interview With Ben Shapiro, Author Of How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps
"With US co founder Of the daily wire. Ah, host of the Ben Shapiro Show number one New York Times bestseller. His latest book is How to Destroy American Three Easy Steps. Ben. He wrote this book. And we're in the middle of this. We seem to be dead Set on destroying America. Did you give everyone a blueprints or something? I am glad that I cannot take responsibility for it. I did not give them will bring. But I won't say that. When I wrote the book in the summer January, I figured out the relevant I didn't think you'd be quite literally been quite this quickly, like all the all the syndrome that I was talking about taking the country broke out into the open at once. So, you know, forget about the gun violence. What? You talked about the civil unrest in Philadelphia in Oakland in Portland in Seattle in New York City in Austin in Albuquerque. And And in Kansas City. What's going on here? I mean, what we're watching right now is a variety of movements, all pretending, t be about civil rights and moving the country better and then all immediately about making the country worse, But they're really about Castigating America as uniquely horrible castigating America systems as repositories of privilege and evil and saying that those systems need to be torn down. Whether you're talking about black lives matter. Rioters in Los Angeles or New York or Washington, DC, or the top men and rioters in Portland or in Seattle. We're watching in the end is sort of a lion's that says that the United States is bad. It's just that the bleeding spear of an ideology That that claims that the United States of systems are unworthy of continuing and need to be tor now out at the root, and there's a reason that Nicole Hannah Jones is very proud, she said. This on Twitter that did it that count 16 19 project and tackle editor of The New York Times. At this point, she said, on Twitter that she was happy. The people were suggesting that what happened in New York and L. A in Washington, D, C and all over the country that was 16 19 riots, meaning that her perspective on the United States namely that it was rooted in evil. And it's inseparable from that evil. That perspective had taken such hold. Now let me ask you Does that come up in the interview? Hi. How you doing? Tell me about your background. You seem to be a good writer and your view of America. It's terrible needs to be disassembled. And what based on slavery? I think you're the perfect person. We have a column. Feed it right. And we have a news division for you to lead so to prove bench appeal. You're right. I'm looking at, uh Ted Lin Seth. He is somebody who is A, uh, African American activist. He said Oregon is white is hell. Uh, he said that He warned that the black guys, Ah matter movement in the city is being co opted by quote privileged white people with their own agenda. It is not our agenda and double a C P is saying the same thing. Why are you telling us what we need again? If it is a white black thing? Why we, depending why are white people taking the lead is not the ultimate insult, telling black people What they need for justice. Late is pretty incredible. But even it goes back to this view of racism that is actually pushed by people like you bring Candy and Robert Angelo and Kenny, Of course, the author of how to Be a racist and from the Beginning and Financial of the author of My Fragility, their View of the United States that the United States is on only racist, But the racism is embedded in all of its systems. And so the way to you identify raising them. Is not how we used to identify racism used to be. You could pretty easily tell who's the racist who ever thought that there was inferiority or superiority based on racial race, right? That was the definition of racist well, Now they changed the definition. They say Any system that create any sort of racial inequality or results in any sort of racial inequality is a racist system. And if you don't want to tear down the system You are racist. Not only that, if you're a white person, you bear all responsibility for this so nobly bears responsibility for the success of white privilege to have lived under and propagated this particular system. What That doesn't mean that white people are still in charge. And the white people are the are the people who have you know, in the sort of old Runyon Kipling phrase that the white man burden to fix the entire system. And so what That means that the views of people of color actually don't matter. The only ones that actually matter are the views of people like Robin D'Angelo was going to cure the country of Whiteness and hat and take on the past in of the United States, So that's why you see these bizarre videos of these white protesters lecture and black ops about what America needs on racism. But I also find her standing, too, is the place they're just overrun with gun violence. And that, of course, is Chicago with great Rahm Emanuel rained and left with his tail between his legs but came out with his chest high with his with his chin in the air in his chest pumped out as if he was a great victor. So because the president did states actually did what he said he was going to use his Listen. I'm gonna send some federal help in there. To not to handle protesters on the Christopher Columbus statue. No, but to find out about these guys. Gangs there were running rampant and the sub gangs that are killing each other. They're shooting each other at funerals at funerals. And here's the mayor. Who blames it on who blames this whole thing on the president's and his willingness to cab federal help cut seven I've drawn a very hardline will not allow federal troops in our city. We will not tolerate unnamed agents, taking people off the street, violating their rights and holding them in custody. That's not happening here in Chicago, so I've drawn a very, very bright line. I've made that very clear to every federal authority that I have spoken with. And they understand that if they cross that line We will not hesitate to use every tool at our disposal to stop troops and unwanted agents in our city. So this woman who should be begging for help with 117,000 gang members, 55 known gangs 747 factions, and they say there are 2500 subsets of those major gangs. You think this won't be begging for help? Instead, she's drawing the line and went through. When push comes to shove, she'll take down Columbus a statue. What planet are we on, Ben? We're on a planet where one of the one of the tactics But that's being used by mayors across the country who are on the left is something that unauthorized infront Eagle, who would the counter of City Institute hey called the riot ideology. The basic idea here back in the 19 sixties, and that was the riots or sometimes useful because politicians will use them as a way to club the citizenry into essentially giving the rioters what they want. So Marion Barry technically did this in Washington, DC He wouldn't work with people outside the governments who are protesting, but actually, we're in Aged in violence, and then he would basically say that the taxpayer to do all these people will stop here to the five things you need to do this something John Lindsay in New York City during the 19 sixties. He basically said the way that we can help alleviate the underlying problems here and do all the things we want you to do. Well, if you're a leftist politicians, you have two possible sort of solutions here. One is that you surrender to the protesters simply because You are afraid that they are more work than you are. And that you're going to be castigated is insufficiently weapons. And at the same time you can go to the citizenry consideration. We can alleviate all these problems. All you have to do these things. I want you to know you're starting to see hints of this nationally. By the way, you're starting to see writers say things like, you know, it's awful. This is Trump resign tonight. You're saying that part out loud, Which is it? This whole thing is about you wanting what you want, and you're only going to stop this democratic elected So essentially, you're threatening the law abiding citizens of the United States. You're going to continue violating law and wrecking major cities and shutting down major cities in six PM and curfews unless you get what you want. Well, that's never believe him. Ocracy is operated and no democracy can operate under those conditions. So, Ben, do you get the sense in looking at your book? There are reasonable people in the middle that understand when a mayor Lightfoot says things the way they do way, understand that these liberal mayor's saying, this is going to be the summer of love in Portland and then see the ransacking of a city like we're seeing, and now we see it re re igniting in Seattle. So when do you get the sense that there's a majority of Americans who who don't care about the politics but a logical enough to see the problem? So I think that most Americans, definitely the problem. I think the biggest problem right now is that the media is such an incredible job of making intimate. Everybody's focusing on President Trump that they've ignored the real problems that are played in the country right now, and they're downplaying it purposefully in order to convince Americans that none of this is happening, how you get that, during that quote, where, he says there's no such thing as in chief of violence. And the only way that you could do that number one of your delusional but number two. If you really think that you could get away with that, and the media decided point again, which they have been playing, So do I think that the vast majority of Americans are happy to go along with us. No, I think the best majority Americans know that this is nonsense. But I think that the polarization around the election is so effective and so effective around President Trump. This is the media have basically been able to make this a referendum on Trump as opposed to a referendum on violence. And this is why it's very important to President Trump be incredibly focused last 100 days of this campaign he really needs Prevent the media from using distraction in order to avoid the logical conclusion here, which is that if you actually want this stuff to stop and not paid to rioters and looters and protesters, then what you actually need is somebody who is going to affect you wait longer. The president needs to make that message inescapable until you can offer the sort of distraction that maybe sometimes I wonder if you know one thing I have to say he's been pretty discipline. I thought he had a very good week last week. He definitely saw the change in messaging, and I do think 99 days in this In this world we're in is a lifetime. I agree. I agree. I think last week was much much better, and we just need to see that we just need to see them and we don't want this to become you know that that image from the Simpson nations work actually read that back to zero. Instead. What we just want is consistent level of solidity coming from the White House looking people have been, I think, begging for this from the beginning because President Trump's policies are actually quite popular. And when President Trump 16 script that he is quite popular, the problem is that he hasn't so if he can actually being here's the discouraging part. He's down in the polls. The encouragement He performed about badly de cluttering will have three months and just not not in terms of policy. But in terms of stuff he's been saying would mean that this is a low water mark, and you're going to see him rise in the polls are gonna start to see things tighten up a little bit at the very least before the election, and if he's disciplined, and if he can point to this he really has to do is point you say well, what Democrats are supporting worst. Joe Biden condemning these riots. Worthy. He's hiding in the basement. Where is it? You want to do an interview? Chris Wallace, it Trump can do that and be consistent about it. Then I think this election's been tied up with her. But I just think that we're not looking at Barack Obama had 5 48 years old with his his eloquent speech and promises that he couldn't fulfill. But you say Well, pretty talented guy, Bill Clinton. He had all his personal problems. But man, can he speak, and he certainly was comfortable on a myriad of issues. No one doubted his intellect. But when you look at Joe Biden, he's the worst candidate that I have seen in my lifetime. And if President Trump can close the gap and force him to actually campaign That would actually be an exponential gain for him. I mean, no question. I mean, Joe Biden is an extraordinarily we candidate who's being benefited by two particular circumstances. One Kobe has made it so he doesn't have to go out and campaign is actually benefiting him tremendously. He just gets to stay home and talk to friendly's basically was really nice for him. He doesn't have to demonstrate any level of potential energy. It all on number two is the fact that he's campaigning. As I said before, essentially the dead person. He's basically what you're saying. I am. A tree stump. And you don't like trump to vote for the tree stump. And so that makes it really a referendum on Trump, which means that this is very much about hands from shift the burden of proof back to buy as opposed to letting it sit on his own shoulders. So then, Lastly, you write the book how to destroy America in three easy steps. I felt as though I am well the book by just reading the news. Unfortunately, if the word destroyed does work, and it is getting, I think it's beginning TTO unnerve our allies. What's happening in our country right now. What is the element that we could see around the bend that would make you believe that we are on that path that we have not discussed yet? I think that the one thing that they would allow us to recover here is a renewed sense of what America's history is all about What the book really does juxtaposed to stations in the country. One is what I thought it's not really left right. So much of it is unions versus disintegration is Do we even want to be a country anymore? If we do we have to have a shared philosophy rooted in the declaration of Independence have assured culture rooted Masonic institutions like churches. And school that values entrepreneurship adventure that values taking care of neighbor. And then if we and we all have a shared history, we have to have a belief that the United States actually an incredibly glorious place. That glorious place ought to be of help. If we don't have those things were gonna fall apart. I think that can be re invoke ated. You've seen Antifa. I mean, they don't. They don't seem to like you. They seem to show up with some of your speeches. Are you seeing their imprint on, especially over in Oregon in Seattle? Hundreds. I mean, you can see all the hall marks mean There's certain things you just look for visually raising both flags. You see the You see the red flags You see people who are dressed, own blast at the bicycle helmet and the goggles. You know this is it's perfectly obvious to everybody that he was deeply involved in very active in Portland for years reporter and you know, it has pointed out another action in Seattle as well. Look at what you're going to see right now. And this is the most predictable effect is a mass, a mass evacuation of major setting two years to see everybody who can afford to leave these nature city. But his major said, because who wants to live there? I want to pay inordinate taxes in order. Get shut down in 68 every night watcher business burnout. It doesn't come in a party today. I think figure I never sent right as a broadcast from New York City virtually alone. There is nobody here, Uh, Bank. Congratulations on the book. How to destroy American. Three Easy steps, continue to get the word out and continue not to take a step backwards. Thanks. Appreciate it.
Premier League: Manchester United Qualify for Champions League
"Manchester United and Chelsea qualify for the Champions League. UNITED WITH A to victory over less than meanwhile Chelsea without win against walls sees all. You're going to show and frank. Lampard side make it into the top four less city, but let's not forget with fifteen points Clare of fifth on New Year's. They dropped the ball completely in twenty twenty and have to make do with Europa League football dodgson staving echo with us, stevie united with win on the season. You one of the harshest critics so all. He's proved you wrong, isn't he? Host you? Listen the. You, you can't see that. Qualifying for the champions. League is not success. For, all the Because as You know ended a day. I think the biggest and the main reason why the option because when transfer marquette. Bought Bruno Fernandes without that piece of business. This this would happen so listen. He always asked to coach the team and he obviously had a hand and say Bruno Fernandes Oh yeah as I said. It's success. I'm not convinced that he can take them from from. Champions League qualifies to actually vying for the title against Liverpool in city I still. The way way off and I still think they have to say more players, but yes, but all they get into the champions lease as a success. But he's had plenty of time. Your United Stat Dome. That now. All you early I mean they close form then they all Liverpool, which is incredible thirty two from Bouma. Thirty three away from Liverpool, and it's not the right time in because I think that the well getting into jump and say those incredible finish I agree with Stevie. Bruno Fernandes doesn't come in. At this, all thing is that. Is Jason for Non Stop the season? Why did they wait until John? Rudy Sunan done I will never ever. No nothing deserves credit ease. That's big name. Players go shifted the dynamic inside the dressing room. He's might young is made them hungrier.

And then chartwell tracked maybe three or four plans to try and give him so titled Till Next Season Way to they need to add to the squad don. I was still like say them. With a recognized number nine I get the argument where people think that Mason Green was going to lead the line, and maybe the could bring in some more to plan the rights on side because I'm not convinced marcial. Yet again I think the such a good player net. He's not consistent enough. And Watching Higher Maguire today and Victor Lindelof as a pair. I mean less than without James Madison. Pereira without Soyeoun shoe without some of their very best players, another about that was missing volley at Indiana Joe Coast to center offs problems time after time after time, and this under-strength less decide so I would like to see, and if they all going to try and compete again can get closer to the city. Liverpool in my opinion, need Weltklasse Center

Pick up immediately on the victor clues so right away I mean tax and tweets and everything was coming in quickly quickly more than I could almost keep up with and I just did a little smiley face originally. He was immediately recognizable. And I think now here in Indianapolis the show is probably doing quite well every Wednesday night. Well there's got this. This has turned into a part of your reporting on the Pacers there. I was in the middle of a game that it is my job in picture in picture on my laptop. I'm watching the mass singer. You're sitting in the press box with the massingir playing on your laptop as you were covering this game just waiting for a magic to perform and to make sure he would not be revealed because Pacer fans recognizing easily that it was him in the panel is just an all of whomever is behind this. Just the incredible voice. Robin Thicke Jenny. McCarthy Walberg Kim Jong and Nicole Scherzinger sure Zinger who has a deep crush on images of beautiful voice. I'm looking at thing.

"And so along with Damian Lillard in the league those to have really taken the League by storm in terms of true singing talent and then they're like some cute little anecdotes of him singing teammates. Oh every single day. It's not for teammates. It's four himself. Let's get that make like that clear. He's just all about singing his way through life this week. We saw during halftime of a game where he couldn't play. He was in the locker room with center miles els Turner and it had just started snowing in Indianapolis. There is no is no blue man anywhere. He is whether is on face time with family and friends whether he's at home whether he's going through practice. He is singing along every single day. His Mom Joan encouraged him to sing and he was kind of shied. I really didn't do it but once he did. He was hooked and continues continues to sing. And it's been love ever since for him okay. So let's go back to the massingir this acid trip of show and specifically a character named named thingamajig. Can you describe what this monster if my nightmares looks like. So thingamajig as a seven foot tall green character lime green character in the thing that stands out about him initially. Is this color then. You'd probably go to his outfit. Dropped sharply in a suit of plaid. He's wearing spectacles. And he's got big MITTS and big feet and initially. There was speculation among the judges. That thingamajig was an NBA player. Because because he was so tall and looked fit. What were some of their guesses immediately? They thought to the most known guy in the NBA. That's Lebron well. This character is not nearly big enough physically. If you know Lebron you know Dwight Howard does not have a voice. At least he has revealed. I guess from okay got and so they went way back in one of the first guesses and even said Dennis Rodman because if anyone has ever heard Dennis Rodman Sing. This ain't him. He's known for so many things one of those being often out of the country but I don't think singing's one of those key attributes well so the video of him singing him singing happy birthday in North Korea to Kim Jong Un. Of course it is of course it is all right well so Scott. Grab your magnifying glass. And take this through the clues. Let's Gumshoe here. Take us through the clues of how we know this thing amid jig is Victor Lebeau. I think so the first most obvious clue in all this is the fact that he says I may gentle giant the feathery very kind now. has anyone else ever heard of anyone else. Using the word feathery to describe anything. Probably not back in two thousand seventeen. He received the trademark trademark for feathery to us on hoodies to us on apparel and merchandise an so feathery right away that turns to victory depot. Because nobody else uses uses that word well so then he goes more newel keep up the pace that he has a magic case. Come on you all keep up the pace space. What are the clues from that? That one right away speaks to the two of the previous three teams at Victor has played for he was drafted. Second overall by the Orlando Orlando Magic and then keeping up the pace. He's a fast player. And he plays for the Indiana Pacers so that was another pretty obvious one if you know the NBA and his his final line in this first introductory video is alison. All the stars led to this Gig. I'm the singing dancing thingamajig and he's an entertainer. He does it all we even saw him at NBA All star weekend dance and entertain the crowds. But all the store suggesting his two time all star appearance led to this Gig on national. TV and entertainment because without being all star without being notable in the NBA. There's no way they're going to put a random bench guy on a national show like this. It just wouldn't draw interest so this was for round one. What Song did he sing? So so in that first song he really set the tone well singing easy by the commodores. They just spoke to his reign singing because he prefers to slow it down and and kind of get emotional and maybe do a love song and I thought that really appealed to not only the audience there but to the panels.

"Oh Hey Scott. It's could be. How are you today? Hey I'm doing well. How are you doing well? Where are we calling you right now? So I am home in Indianapolis trying to take advantage of a rare off-day a non practice day for the Pacers today. Well as the Pacers beat writer is someone who knows this team in out probably better than anyone else did you think. Part of that job job description would be watching hours. This ridiculous reality show. No I didn't at all. I mean I was not even aware of this show to be frank learning about it as the lead into the first episode and then it was obvious right away that I would be continuing to watch it. Throughout the season explained that those of us who have no idea what the show. It's what is the mass thing or show behind demands essentially what it is is celebrities inside a costume and singing. And there's a panel of about five judges trying to guess who is behind the costume in the mass. Celebrities are throwing their voices. Is there a changing their physical traits. Anything they can do to make us not guess correctly eventually leading to one champion down the end of the road. All of these contestants like random celebrities there from all walks of fame or are they all good singers. I think most of them are from what I've seen. Generally you have some very well known stars. You have of many others that I would guess your average sports fan may not be exactly aware of and so that's part of the fun. These contestants these celebrities unease there in these just ridiculous costumes like I obviously had to watch an episode preparing for this interview. And it's basically like American idol or the voice on on on acid. They're like evil mascots. So these costumes just wild nothing. I had ever quite seen before. And when they speak to the judges judges their voices are distorted to conceal their identity. Like it's like witness protection meets Alvin and the chipmunks. Okay okay. So he's not and we don't actually find out who's in the costume until performer loses and gets knocked out of the competition. That's correct the whole point of it is to see how long each contested can go and make their way until the very end. But at the end of each episode one member voted off based on their talent. And then there's an unmasking ceremony where they reveal their true identities. Scott you are going to make the case that one of this. The seasons masked contestants is Indiana Pacers. Star Victor Oladipo first of all. Tell us a little bit about his background. Yes victor is a rising star in the NBA. I it he's been voted to the All Star game each of the last couple of years he's currently sidelined with the first significant injury of his career. A ruptured quad tendon. So he hasn't played basketball since January. And that's eating a live at him. His mom and father Nigerian roots. His Dad actually pushed him away from basketball. Escobar prefer that he. He really focused on his study reading. That's what was going to make him go far in life. His mom was fine with basketball. And in Victor going back choose high. School days was always the underrated guy who had an infectious attitude and outworked. Everyone and how has the basketball world come to know. Victor Oladipo Singer. Yes so Indiana fans. I got to know him back. In two thousand Rosen. Eleven when he was in his first year at IU. And they had a spirit of Indiana showcase where some of the most talented athletes could perform. Could Sing dance and show off off other talent. Perhaps a hidden town ladies and Gentlemen Victor Twist Your Body Body Jane to it wasn't until six years later in two thousand seventeen during an NBA talent showcase on TNT. Where Victor Sing a song and not only won that competition but he won the following year as well and that put the League on notice about his singing talents?
