Keith Idec, senior writer with BoxingScene .com, good friend of the pod. He joins me to run through all the news of the week from the controversy coming out of the Alexander Usyk -Daniel Dubois fight to Terrence Crawford's pursuit of a Canelo fight. Can't wait to get into that. To a potential big fight in the works in the lightweight division. I'll talk to Keith about that as well. Later, Michaela Mayer, former 130 -pound champion. She is moving up to the welterweight division for her next fight. She joins me to talk about that move. And we get into her thoughts on her arch rival, Alicia Baumgartner, testing positive for banned substances. But first, Keith Idec, senior writer, BoxingScene, one of the most plugged -in guys in the business, which is why I love having him on so often. Keith, I want to start by giving a shout -out to Tom Brown, a listener dedicated who I had a chance to catch up with on Tuesday at the undercard presser for Canelo Alvarez, Jermell Charlo. Tom, of course, the promoter of that event. He told me he especially enjoys the episodes that we do together. So shout -out Tom Brown, TGB Promotions. Friends of the pod are everywhere in Boxing, Keith. I think Tom might be listening just for a reason to yell at both of us, maybe. But that's neither here nor there. Tom is a good man, though. All kidding aside, you know? He did say he occasionally picks up the phone and calls you after hearing something you may have said on this podcast. No, but look, I mean, it's all healthy, you know, it's all healthy exchanges and all that kind of stuff. And all kidding aside, Chris, and I like Tom and respect Tom. He's been in this business forever.
Fresh update on "waller" discussed on Bloomberg Surveillance
"They've been following on the usual cable networks the motorcade at coming down and i i believe we just saw one of the trump sons walked by the gauntlet of cameras uh... will be following that throughout the morning i am curious though steven when you talk about how the consumer has been strong as powered through are we seeing a consumer that is managing through interest traits the highest levels going back to two thousand seven mortgage rates going back further are we seeing consumers is avoid paying them entirely with your savings or with their buffers or with locked in rates that are nothing like what we're seeing in the market yeah i think that that latter scenario that you that you point out is is really critical uh... you know this i think some numbers thrown out there that something like eighty five are the ninety percent of all consumer debt is fixed rate and of course the biggest shocker that are would be mortgages and you know we know very well that people are just sitting in their homes the supply of existing homes on the market market is very low which is creating a tight housing market but what that means is that people are um... they like three those four percent mortgages and it's not worth it unless they have to move uh... to move and take on a mortgage rate that might be double that so um... certainly some households the ones that need to borrow are gonna feel the the impact of higher rates uh... but as you say not only do you have a lot of people who are just sitting pretty with those low mortgage rates but also um... you know as i mentioned before household balance use in very good shape people have a lot of savings and for the first time in a very long time uh... you know the savings can earn a good a good return um... i think it's in some ways it's going to be has and have nots between the savers in the borrowers are going to be households that uh... come under stress but the household sector as a whole is is certainly weathering higher rates i think better than a lot would have uh... would have feared this goes to the whole whole question of long and variable lags are we looking at just a policy that's already been basically implemented markets and won't hit the consumer in time to really matter or are we looking at lags are that just incredibly long and if we keep these rates higher for say another year you could start to see pain that has not been reflected in anyway uh... based on the existing economic data you know what this is a debate i think that's going on hot and heavy at every FOMC meeting now because we're seeing it play um... out publicly you know the traditional view which Powell has subscribed to and others have made that is there are those long and variable lags anywhere from twelve to eighteen to twenty four months and so you that know the tightening is still taking into the economy so to speak but then governor waller came out a few months ago with a each uh... i think uh... recently retired president bollard and made a similar case and a few others have as well on the fed that hey you -know -what financial markets transmit monetary policy much more quickly then was historically the case and it's pretty much all in already um... initially that and you know either we're gonna have to do more or going to have to stay tight for all the time long steven stanley thanks for the brief i'm sure we'll speak to you along the date of path to uh... the sixth the twelfth the thirteenth and and the november one is well really green industry naztech up six news in new york city is michael barf

"I said to John, if I could get a goat tag for under X, Y, Z, it's going to be a lot cheaper than going, you know, to Alaska, B.C. or something. And so I got one. I bid on one in an auction. I got it. It's in Utah. I'm so excited. I've never spent that kind of money before on any hunt I've ever done on, ever. But life's short. I'm getting old. So I'm super excited. And it's DIY. John and I are going to do it ourselves. We're going to do a bunch of scouting in August. The hunt starts in September. He's coming in to film it. So that's my one in the fall. I'm looking to I'm looking forward to the most. I am trying to line up a veteran hunt for a veteran that I don't even want to announce right now, but I will down the road. We'll talk about it again. He's an incredible special forces veteran. I'm really trying to get him on a hunt this year. If I can't this year, then he's slated for next year. I still have in my pocket my Montana bear tag and my Idaho bear tag as well as Montana deer elk. I don't know if I also I don't know if I'm going to get back. Keith and I talked about running a bait in the fall. We've never done it in the fall. So it would be kind of fun to see. But a big time commitment to go all the way up there and put our bait back in and all that. But yeah, I'll see. I kind of go with the flow, see where I go. Nothing else is solidly on the books because it's DIY. So I'm hoping I draw Antelope again in Montana. I got my deer and elk tag in Montana. I'm not going to archery hunt because my shoulder. So that's rifle. So really the goats, the biggie. And then next year, Prince of Wales Island is kind of weird. You put in actually a year before and I already drew next spring Prince of Wales. So I'm going to go back to Eagle Lodge. In fact, today I just finished writing an article. I'm the Western contributor to Bear Hunting magazine. And I just finished my Prince of Wales article that we did this last fall. So I'm excited to go there in the spring. So, yeah, and then I'm going for Grizzly with Lance Kromberger next next spring with John. Next, I think, May, May or June with John. So, yeah, that's what we've got on the docket this fall. We'll see how it goes. And I might hopefully put that 30 30 to you that I just got. Awesome. Awesome. I have been to Prince of Wales. I went back in the 90s right during during high school years. So I'm dating myself there a little bit. But when I went, you could just show up and buy tags and go out on the island. So now you have to draw. And it's I'm glad conservation is working. You know, it's hard to see some of that change a little bit. But yes, I have been there and done that. And I challenge anybody that wants a pretty easy DIY kind of adventure. Either either Sitka Blacktail or or Black Bear on on Kodiak Island is definitely a DIY sort of hunt. You need to hire a transporter or book a lodge or somewhere in between. But that is definitely if you're if you're wanting to do an out of state kind of adventure style hunt, if you're from Wisconsin or Wyoming or Utah and you want to go somewhere that's a low budget. You don't have to go guided kind of deal. That's definitely a place to go. But but take two rain jackets because you're going to need both of them. I mentioned that in the article. You definitely need good reindeer. It rained at least every day. But yeah, no. Prince of Wales Eagle Lodge doesn't do any guiding. They just lodge. So it's awesome. Go back. You're going to have an amazing meal, a hot shower, a cute little cabin on the bay. And yet the hunt's up to you. And they also when you book that kind of hunt, they have a vehicle for you or you get to use one of their skiffs. So in the fall, obviously, you're using a vehicle to go on the roads and go up the rivers and the creek in the spring. From what I hear, it's more of a skiff hunt. So it'll be. And that's what I love about black bear hunting. It's so varied, you know, depending on the time of year, the terrain, what weapon you're using. You know, I did I did a hound hunt for the first time ever in Utah a couple of years ago. That's a Chronicles episode people can watch. And, you know, a lot of people are super critical of that. You see the negativity come out of the woodwork. But they have no idea. Houndsmen. I have a lot of respect for houndsmen. It's a lifestyle. It costs a lot to feed all your dogs all year round. Train them. I went with PJ Pace, who is an incredible houndman here in Utah. His dogs are amazing.

"Infatricide dropped to almost really low numbers and the bear population exploded on the island because they're so full of fish that there's plenty of protein for those bears. They don't have to worry about calories. Right? And the bear density is something like a bear per square mile on the island. Right? There's a lot of brown bears on that island. But what was keeping the population at a kind of a natural symbiotic, you know, level was the big boars were eating the cubs. That's what was, and now hunters are taking some of the bears. Those young cubs, instead of dying at three months old or three months old or six months old or three years old, they're now getting to mature into adulthood before they're harvested. So in the grand scope of things, is it better that the average bear population age is six years or, you know, three years old? I think it's better that the bears all get to live for an average of six years than three years. And I think every, every non hunter would agree. Well, oh, you mean they get to live 50% longer? It's going to be a little more humane to be taken by a human than it is to be taken by mother nature through, you know, starvation, old age or infatricide. If you've watched a video of that, it's not pretty. No, John and I talk about that all the time. You know, we'll read through comments and, you know, a lot of the, again, it goes back to being uneducated. Antis, yes, but then uneducated on the topic is, is people just, you know, like the, even just deer, right? Almost every state has them. They're outnumbered in a lot of states. People would rather see them, you know, get hit, hit by cars and go stumbling off into the wild and or die of EHT or a slow death, which is very painful, going to water, starvation flow. Then having a hunter take them out ethically within seconds, they're dead and use their meat. Yep. They don't care about any or they don't want to hear, they just don't want hunting period. And we hunters are actually one of the most peaceful pieces of the puzzle in terms of how they die and management. And it's complex. It's never super simple. Every state, you know, I was a Montana wildlife commissioner. John was a wildlife commissioner in Utah and he was actually chairman of the board for six years. It's complex. There's a lot of really intricate issues that I think a lot of the public doesn't even understand. But I would go back to saying if you support hunting in general, whether it's duck hunting, turkey hunting, whitetail hunting, you need to. It doesn't you don't have to be a predator, but you need to support it because it's an important piece of the puzzle. Perfect. Well said. So what's on the future horizon? Are we going to see some more skull art from you? What's what's anything big, exciting for the TV show adventures you have planned? Any any bucket list hunt that you can tell us about that's coming up? Yeah, I'm actually so excited. I am actually I have a Utah mountain goat tag and I'm so excited about that. And the funny thing is, I've always, you know, to each his own, everyone, if anyone, we could go do a whole nother podcast about tags and spending money on a hunt. You know, who would spend twenty five dollars per grizzly bear, blah, blah, blah, whatever. I have a couple of bucket list funds left on on my list. Typically, I am the T.J. Mac of hunters. I am almost always a DIY hunter. If I go if I have an outfit or reach out who wants some advertising, I typically give that to one of my veterans. And we do that kind of hunt. And not to say I haven't hunted without British because I have. But primarily in West, it's super easy to DIY it. You know, Montana especially. You've got deer, white tails, muleys, antelope, over the counter or mountain lion, bear. You know, you could do it all. So typically I call myself the T.J. Mac of hunters because I don't like to pay a lot for hunt. But this year was a big year for me. I sold my house in Montana. I did pretty well on it. And I said, if so, I'm budgeting the cost of the mountain goat and grizzlies are my two bucket list left hunt. I'm going grizzly next year. But mountain goat, you know, if I buy an Alaska or B.C. mountain goat hunt, you know, you're looking at the cost of the hunt. You're looking at the flight, sometimes a drop camp. I have to fly heat and I've got to tip my guide. And that's how they make a living guide. You know, your tips going to be three to five thousand dollars. So you're looking at a pretty expensive hunt.

"I have that. No, that's perfect. That's awesome. We do the same thing here as we can a lot of elk meat. Right. And if you've got a real tough mule deer will can that as well. And I mean, my wife's grandpa taught her to can and that was just what they did. They they did homemade salsa. They did everything. Grape juice. But the big one was canning. Canning more of meat that's not quite burger, but definitely not steak. Right. Front shoulders on a mule deer is a great example. Cut it up in cubes. Yeah. Breaks down that meat. It's delicious. Whether you have because parts of a bear are really sinewy, lots of sinew, which is what's also super useful back in the day. But it breaks that down super nice. You don't have to trim off everything. And same with, like you said, a tough mule deer or something. The canning process is really going to break that meat down. It's delicious and it stays forever. I mean, I don't know forever is the right word, but a long time. We make nachos or tacos or there's 10 ways to do it. You could just make a beef stroganoff, open one can of canned meat. You don't have to. It's already cooked. You just have to warm it up. I'll take a jar when I'm going scouting for anything. I just throw a jar in the truck and for lunch, I open it and just eat it cold because it's great. Yeah, exactly. Exactly. Well, we've covered the gamut. There's a couple. There's one more question because this has happened to me as a bear hunter. You know, I first started, I wanted to harvest just a bear, any bear. Didn't care. Big, small. I just wanted to get a bear. I once I got a bear, then I wanted to shoot lots of bears, right? But still just wanted to get to where I was confident, successful repeatability. Now that I have several bears, archery rifle, tree stand baits, pot and stock, I've done it. You know, on the list now is big or really cool color phase. And I'm 100% willing to let, I wouldn't say immature. I wouldn't say small. I would say a bear that early David, early bear hunting David would be ecstatic to harvest. Now I look at that bear and go, no, that's just not my bear. It's an awesome bear. It's cool. I want to see lots of bears. Has that happened to you? Oh, yeah. Yeah, all the time. Just this last year that I had color phase, I had a cinnamon, younger blonde, all we have lots of color phase bears in Idaho and in Montana. I've shot I've shot 17 bears, so I have every color under the sun. It's rare to get that big monster, you know, and I've gotten a couple of those back. There's my best Montana bear ever. He was amazing. That's on Skullbone Chronicles season one, just a recap short episode. You want to go watch that? His noggin was huge. Absolutely. And you know, it's funny. I it doesn't mean that I'm not going to shoot littler bears down the road either. Because everything is situational. And I'm not and I don't care what if someone's going to jump on and go you shot that little bear. I don't care. If I if it's coming down to the end of my hunt, I don't have any bear meat left. I can guarantee you that that you know, three year old might not be huge, but he's not young anymore. He's lived a life. And I'm going to use every piece of that bear and trust me, I use every I use everything from the claws and jewelry and skull projects to the hides. I have bear jackets, that collars. I have bear pillows. I have bear rugs, mounts, you name it. I use everything. And I think it's up to the hunter. If the hunter is happy. I'm happy. And and but yeah, I'm getting a little more selective as I go through my years of being a bear hunter. But I also think as long as the hunter is happy and excited and he put the time in. Good for him. Nothing bugs me more than when I'm on social media and I see people criticizing hunters for the size of their animal. It's just ridiculous to me. We need to join together. And and there's another Fred Bear quote. And it's it's pretty simple. If you're not working to protect hunting, you're working to destroy it. You know, and exactly when they gather all of us, whether you're a trad guy, or your long range rifle hunter, I don't care as long as you're ethical and legal and following the rules. I don't care if you're into hunting hogs with town. I don't care if you're a waterfall hunter. You are out there supporting wildlife and supporting hunting. And I think all of us need to band together so much stronger social media. It's a wonderful tool and a wonderful thing. It can get really negative. I try not to engage in anything like that. But if I could give the world a piece of advice, it would be like, come on, people, like, let's just be together. If you don't have anything, let's go back to the rule of kindergarten. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all. I think social media and I think this is a Mike Tyson quote. Social media has made everybody way too comfortable for saying things that if you were in the same room, you'd get punched in the face for. I love when he said that. I'm like, you know what? Y'all are getting way too comfortable saying things that if you were standing in the same room with this person, they might just punch you right in the face. You wouldn't say it could be, oh, I don't know how they'll take that. Right. And that's going back to that two hour conversation. You're sitting on a plane with somebody. If we do our jobs right, and it is a job, you know, are we going to convert everybody to becoming the next hardcore conservation globe trotting hunter? No, but as long as they're not an anti. Right. As long as they understand what we do. It's exactly right. It's what the conservationist Shane Mahoney said. He said, you know, we don't need to convert the anti. We're not going to. And let's just so back in the day, about a decade ago, we used to be able to say we hunters were 10 percent of the population. Antis are about 10 percent. So that leaves about 80 percent. We're kind of non who don't really have enough. Now, unfortunately, we're more like below 5 percent. I don't know what the antis are. But to make it simple, we'll use that analogy. And he was saying we're not going to convert the antis that 10 percent, just like they're never going to convert us. That hunting is a bad thing. We need to simply educate that 80 percent to where they understand what hunting truly is. And they're not against it when they go to the polls, when they vote. That's what we need to do is to hopefully educate the 80 percenters to at least be supportive of hunting. When the polls and the laws come up, they never put a line that says, you know what, we're going to ban duck hunting. We're going to ban turkey hunting. We're banning whitetail deer hunting. They're very nefarious. They're going to reduce mountain lion hunting through loss of trapping, loss of hounds. They're going to reduce bear hunting by closing fall season and only having a spring season. And they're starting with those charismatic megafauna, like Steven Rinella likes to say, you know, the predators. And why does everybody get upset when you go to harvest a predator? I'm not sure. Same thing they do when they get elephants, lions, and giraffe, right? I put a picture of a turkey or a carp online, you know, a big ugly fish. A turkey, nobody cares. They're like, eh, whatever. A deer, it's like, eh, grandpa used to shoot those, that's food. All of a sudden you throw a picture of one of these charismatic megafauna up there and it's, oh my goodness, how come you, are you going to eat that? Are you just shot that? No, of course I'm going to eat it, right? Right. There's just so much misinformation out there, but you're so right. I just did a show, a podcast last week, talking about predators on Talk as Sheep for the Wild Sheep Foundation in BC. And we talked about predators because they're a huge part of the puzzle when it comes to management of sheep. Of course there's disease, there's habitat, but predators are a huge component of that. And so we talked all about that. And it's just, you have to remember these people making these really ignorant comments just don't know. Oh, they did a collared study on a grizzly bear in Yukon, BC, Northern Canada in the spring. That one collared grizzly bear in seven days ate something like 47 or 52 moose calves, right? I saw that. I saw, I saw that with a big collar on the bear. I saw that. That's fascinating. And that's a confirmed scientific study. That's not me pulling some random facts. I know I'm a little misrepresenting how many, but it was forties moose calves in like seven days. Right? And so by removing that one large bear from the population, we just did a Kodiak special. I was up there this spring hunting with my dad and I will be up there next spring. I forget the tag in my pocket. Archery hunting a Kodiak grizzly bear. Why? Because I want to try and do it. Just because I need the adrenaline rush in my life. But there's an interesting dichotomy. As the North American wildlife hunting model got implemented on Kodiak, taking super predators out of the population, because they were, the hunters were coming up taking, you know, 10 foot plus Kodiak 1200, 1300 pound bears out of the population.

"Beautiful way to describe what we're talking about. Yep, a burden shared is a burden halved, right? So, speaking of some of that, you know, when people are sharing, and we spoke about social media a little bit, can you advise new, aspiring young people, women, men who are, you know, coming up and want to be in conservation in the limelight? They want to be a social media star. What are some some do's and don'ts, you know, on social media pertaining to hunting and conservation? The best advice I ever received was actually I was talking to my girlfriend, Melissa Bachman. She's a hardcore hunter. She's awesome. She's on the Sportsman's channel, has been for years. She actually got her Facebook page shut down, because she was getting all these really ugly comments, death threats, and she was reporting them. Well, Facebook came back, and we all know social media is not gun friendly, hunter friendly. They're not country music friendly. They're not our kind of people. No. So we came back and said, thank you for all the messages. We see that you're getting harassed and the messages that are coming at you. We're shutting down your page because we cannot protect you. And so she had to start all over from scratch. The best advice she ever gave me and I've passed this along is if you are receiving ugly comments, even threat, erase their comment and block and ban that person. That's it. I had to learn the hard way because I'm a right fighter. I'm going to go on there and I'm gonna Are you crazy? Are you kidding me? Of course, mountain lions aren't danger, aren't danger. And you know, get it. Nope. I have learned that if they're name calling, if they're being rude, if they're threatening, erase their comment, go into their account, block them and ban them. That's it. And the more you do that, and I have thousands on my blank ban list over the years, the more you do that, the less you'll see, because a lot because they got big mouth, but they're not that big. And the more you ban and block them. Yeah, they'll start other accounts and they'll trickle in. You got to have thick skin. First of all, and I think that people know that nowadays, though, when you're on social media, you could put out there, I just cured cancer, and you're going to get some Yahoo. Well, thanks a lot. I just lost my job at the pharmaceutical company, thanks to you. You know, you're always going to get a negative nelly in every Yeah, I got it. I got it just this week. So I got a brand new pistol and I do a lot of pistol hunting after I hurt my shoulder. But pulling a bow back became hard like five years ago and I still go home once a while but I do a ton of pistol hunting and I ordered a brand new BFR 3030 pistol and I did a little video of it. And I got Yahoo's in there and like she can't even there's no way she'll be able to fire that gun. You know, no way did it a you know, those to me aren't blocked ban. But if they're in the planning category, I just Okay, hold my beer and watch this, you know, whatever. But if if they are name calling, being rude, C word, B word, not cute and beautiful. If they're threatening you in any way, shape or form, erase their comment, block them and ban them. And then moving forward. Be respectful. If someone is coming on your page and being rude, I don't call people names back. Like that guy I said, I did say hold my beer and watch this. And then there was another one under there. I said, Well, in fact, I've killed three bears, one mountain lion, a javelina, a hog and a turkey with a Desert Eagle 429. I think I can handle the 33. And he messaged back and said, Oops, my bad. Didn't know who I was talking to. So like, killing with kindness, be a little sarcastic, be a little funny, but always be respectful. Remember, it's out there for the world to see. And even if it gets erased, a lot of times people will screen grab it. So be respectful. Remember that you're, you're always on, you know, social media is out there for the world to see, get thick skin. But if you're new to hunting, and new to maybe putting your hunting pictures out there, make sure those pictures are respectful. Try to clean, clean up the blood, and also talk about why you're grinning. Why are you so happy? How many days did it take? What are you going to do with the meat? What are you going to do with the bear hide? What are you going to, you know, whatever it is, you know, talk about it and explain. And remember that a lot of people don't truly don't know. And they won't be, they're only spouting off maybe what they've heard other people say. They don't really know. And if you do that, and they still come back, and now they're being rude or not, then it's the easy time to erase their comments and ban them. No, you're, you're spot on. I learned way back in the beginning. Hey, just don't read the comments, right? Just, just post what you're posting is respectful, good, great representation. You know, I just post and walk away. But we did post a short nine second video clip of how to use our product, right? And we've got a full camera team out there, lights, audio sound, right? And there's people on there just picking it apart. And I've been reading through and just ignoring, ignoring. And these guys are like, Oh, where's this guy going hunting without any arrows in his quiver? I'm like, well, we took the quiver off so you could see the product better. It wasn't hiding behind arrows. I don't have a release on because I don't have any arrows because we're not hunting. It's middle of June and we're out here filming a commercial. It's not even season, right? I didn't even, I didn't even talk to him. But somebody did tear down my old Z seven mag bow, right? And it's a Matthews bow that's 15 years old now. I've gone around the continents twice, Africa, Alaska, US, harvested a dozen or so trophy big game animals with that bow. And all I did is I got on there and I said, that Z seven mag sure has a pile of animals behind it. So you can do it. I just, just dot, dot, dot, dot, dot, right? You can pick on my old bow that's in the commercial, but not only are they tearing me apart for the equipment that's in there, right? And why was I using my old bow, not my brand new carbon one from Bowtech? Because I don't want to be pretentious and, and promote the idea that you have to only have a brand new bow to be successful in the woods, right? That's, yeah, that's half the reason I don't even work with an archery company anymore. I want to shoot what I want to shoot. I don't want to shoot a brand new bow every year. I want to shoot what I want to shoot. I've been shooting over 30 years. I've got a lot of these animals that are archery. I just, it's not even worth it to me. It's funny that you say that because there's a Yahoo in every bunch. I always say that. And I saw David Goggins. I don't know if it was Rogan's podcast or what. He said a great quote. And he said, no one, no hater is ever going to comment a rude comment. He's doing better than you are. Hey, there you go. So true. I cannot imagine going on to someone's post and being rude and being like, oh, that cute shot, that cute little deer. You know, I just, I just can't, I can't even imagine having the attitude of going on to people's posts and being negative. I just don't get it. And usually you have to remember those kind of BS comments come from haters who are probably stuck at a miserable job. It's a, it's a defensive mechanism. If I tear somebody else down who's doing better than me, I get to feel better. Yep. That's a hundred percent. So back on track, what is your favorite species to hunt? And this is a twofold question, right? The question following this one is what is your favorite meat to procure and how do you cook that? So first of all, what would be your favorite thing to hunt? Why, how, where, when, and how are we cooking it? That's such a hard question because, um, you know, I love elk hunting. I grew up white tail hunting in Wisconsin. So like, it is a really hard to say. A lot of people ask me the question, if you could only hunt one thing, it's hard. I would have to say though, bears, because I hunt bear more than any other big game species because I get a spring season, and I get a fall season. Um, pigs are over the counter in Montana. They're over the counter in Idaho, Utah, unfortunately, not over the counter, but I'm, I still have tons of friends in Montana. And my business partner, he, he lives in Montana. He is also my baiting partner. So he's been I have for 10 years have run baits in Idaho together. I find there sometimes I've taken four bears in one year because I'm Montana, Idaho, or I'm going up into Alberta, and then I'm going to Alaska. Next year, I have Idaho, Montana, Prince of Wales already, they'll take their own. So I know for sure, three bear hunts next year. So I'd have to say my favorite is bear. Now I love bear also because I truly believe it's the most diverse, big game species. I've hunted bears with spot and stalk Montana, most of my bears, I bait my own bears in Idaho. And this year, people say, Oh, you bait them, they just come in, and I didn't even knock my tag. Now I could have multiple times, but I was waiting on fatty to come in, who would only come in if I wasn't sitting there or with dark out, and he never came back. In fact, we're going to do a full episode. I think we're going to do a full episode on just that we got amazing great bear footage, but just didn't see the bear of my dreams. Now my say a bear meat is also so fun to talk about because it is so misunderstood. People think because bears are so fat, and greasy when you take care of them that they're gross and smelly and the meat that bear meat is absolutely delicious. In fact, bear meat is useful and delicious. They're fat, you can render you can cook with it, you can make a lotion lip balm. And there's so you so many things you can do with bear fat. In fact, it used to be I was listening to a podcast with clay. Bear grease podcast, it used to be currency. Bear fat used to be back 100 years ago currency that they would trade and barter with because it was so valuable. Now recipe. This is going to be it's gonna sound like I'm thinking out but I'm just being truthful. I do not like to cook. I cook. Of course I eat but I don't love to cook. I don't like Oh, this recipe that recipe. I admit I'm the easiest cook and thank God john is the easiest eater. If I just say I'm cooking eggs tonight, you'll be like sweet. Two ways to prepare a bear that are so easy and so amazing. The number one way that I do is I smoke them and I don't even smoke them. I drop them off at my processors, almost all plate processing places where you're going to drop off your deer or drop off your elk. They'll also smoke bears. So I've got I take the back straps and those I'm marinating. I and my marinade is literally whatever you have in the kit in the fridge, you put in a bowl you whisk it together, make sure you add oyster sauce and Dijon mustard but then barbecue sauce, soy sauce, French dressing, ranch dressing, you mix it all up, you marinate it 24 hours, and you put them on the grill. Make sure that you cook them thoroughly because bears care can carry trichinosis. But that's my favorite backstrap recipe, but the four hams off a bear you drop off, and usually they smoke in batches. So like it might be three or four weeks before you get your bear quarters back, but then they're fully cooked. No worry about trichinosis. You simply put them in the oven at 200 so low for three hours. It's awesome out, heat them up, your whole house smells like a beautiful smoked ham, and you slice it and it's delicious. And then I usually eat it for two meals, and then the rest slice up, put it in the fridge and take it in my car. I've literally been bear hunting on the mountain while I'm eating smoked bear. It stays forever. It's so good. And then I was also going to say, my friends Polly and D. Servi taught me how to can bear meat, and it is so delicious. And they can a ton of their elk, deer, everything. And we actually did a show for Skullbound Chronicles. I think it's in season three of Skullbound Chronicles on Carbon TV. It's free for everybody. Go in and watch it. Take notes because we go step by step how to can meat and you can do it with bear, elk, deer, whatever you want. It's the same exact process. It's not like bear needs to be cooked longer or anything like that. And that's and that is so much fun. They're the ones taught me how to do that. I've only done it with them because they have the whole kit and caboodle. But I can tell you one thing, I have done a taste test of Polly's I think it was his Colorado mule deer with bear and same vegetables in them. And you could not tell them apart because the canning process really breaks down the meat and it soaks in all that flavor of the spices and the vegetables that you put into the can. And it's delicious. And you just open it up or put it in the microwave, put it over noodles or rice and it's delicious. No, that's amazing.

"And I'm not sure that I would have had the opportunities that I had to sit around a campfire to sit on the mountainside while it's the lull of the afternoon freezing your butt off waiting for Al or you know, spending that kind of quality time. And then during their hunt, we're also talking about their what they went through. In the military, and what it was like coming back and trying to acclimate acclimate back into college life or family life or losing the brotherhood that they had the camaraderie the schedule, even just the schedule, you know, when they're in the military, they, you know, know where to go what to do, they're on a routine. And they come back and they sometimes have lost that brotherhood and that connection. And hunting is one vehicle that can really bring them back together. That's why I love wishes for warriors. They're not the only group I work with, but they're a big part of my life that I've done a lot of hunts with in the last decade and wishes for where the guys stay connected through wishes, and then they'll do other events like, you know, whitewater river rafting golf event, they just had a big clay shoot, where they could all go compete with one another bond with each other and strengthen their their brotherhood now that they're home. I think the, you know, we've had Zumbo on here, but the one that comes to mind is, you know, Fred bear says, immerse yourself in the outdoors, it will cleanse the soul, right? And whether you whatever you're struggling with, whatever you're going through, mean, Zumbo said it best, they take some veteran hunters, and these guys will open up and talk about things that they're not going to sit down and talk to a counselor about in a closed off, you know, mental health society scenario, right? But sitting around a campfire going, you know, I've been struggling with this, or I'm working with this, or what do you guys think about that? Right? Exactly. Tom Spooner said it best to me, Tom Spooner founded, well, he's one of the founders behind Mission 22, which is the, you know, nationwide campaign about suicide, and that on average, 22 veterans a day commit suicide from Mission 22. But he founded the very first facility called Warriors Heart of its kind in Texas. And it's a 30 day, I believe, inpatient therapy for drugs, alcohol, depression, and you have to be a veteran or first responder to go to Warriors Heart. And now there are other Warriors Heart facilities, but he founded that in Texas. I was talking to Tom Spooner at CHATRA one year, and he explained it better than anyone I'd ever heard. He boiled it down into the 62nd conversation. And he said, think about it like this. These guys, and it's also women, but these guys come home from the war, and they are burdened. They're burdened with, maybe they lost their friend who died in their arms. Maybe they didn't get injured at all, but they have survivor's guilt. Maybe they lost a limb. Maybe they're going, you know, going through terrible times overseas, they come home, they've got these burdens. And he said, and those burdens do not belong to that individual. Because that cup of, it's like, he explained it as if it were a cup. And if those warriors could just learn to talk about it, and to share their stories, and every time they tell their story, they pour out just a little bit of burden. And a little bit of burden, and a little bit of burden. Because that burden belongs to every single one of us God-loving American patriots. That's our burden to share with them. And every time they can do that, then that cup of burden gets a little bit smaller. And maybe now it's only half a cup, and that they can deal with.

"When do I travel? What partners do I want to work with? When I went through the split four years ago, I literally got rid of any partner that if I couldn't look at the phone and see their caller ID and be excited they were calling me I didn't want to work with them anymore. If they I got rid of any emotional drain. I don't care what the cost of the money they were partnering me with. My girlfriend, Julie said it the best, you need to work with people who celebrate you not tolerate you. And I had some partners that I kind of felt just tolerated with. And so got rid of those. And it's amazing when you do that. Whether it's people in your life, partners in your business partners in your life, and you literally work with people who you love and want to see just soar to the top of that mountain, and they want to see you soar. That's who you work with. And you're going to be the best. And it's amazing how much more time you have more energy you have for positivity and positive people and things. And so really, I've just learned to kind of go by my intuition. I also have an amazing husband, john is so good at like, I'm going to be gone here next week. For a boat fishing trip out in Maryland, I'm going to go out with ams and stick some stingrays. And he's just awesome. He's like, Oh, my gosh, have fun. I'll pick you up. I'll drop you up. He's just easy, you know, so definitely having a really strong. partner makes balance all the easier. Isn't it amazing when when we support each other and work with each other and help each other how how high we can lift each other up? I mean, it's just, I mean, getting to just a text and share and I have industry contacts that I'm getting ready to go on a moose hunt in Alaska with my dad impromptu, I just bought a ticket and our family cabin is in Alaska, which is very fortunate for me because that's where I like to be. But you know, I decided the other day, I'm like, there's only so many more years I get to go with my dad. He's 67. We're gonna go on an early season archery moose trip, probably not going to get a moose. It's just and I'm not willing to sacrifice premium elk hunt time to go chase a moose because it's a moose. I'll kill one eventually. I'm not too worried about it. But I want to go spend seven days with my dad doing something. Right. And you mentioned that that's, it's cool that you what you said about you want to work with people who who promote you not just tolerate you, right? Who celebrate you not tolerate you? Yeah, it makes such a difference. So what is the key message you hope viewers take away from Skullbound TV? Oh, probably like we talked about before, I want people to feel inspired, but also that, like I heard, when I say this, obviously, most of the people who are watching my show are hunters, or want to be but they're hunters. So this is gonna sound a little weird. But I want them to remember that we're animal lovers. Like it to me, I created Skullbound and I still have that exact intention of and I think that that's so important in life. The word intention is so powerful. What is your intention? And I actually got that through reading a book years back called Seed of the Soul by Gary Zukoff. He was actually this badass green braid dude who kind of went hippie piece. Well, but it's an amazing book. And there's parts of it that I pick and choose from that I think about all the time. And one is intention. What is your intention? Like what's behind your decision behind your conversations behind what you do? And if there is good energy behind that intention, if there is wholesome, good energy, positive thinking, good attitude behind your intention, then things will go well. And I've kind of lived my life like that the last 20 years and it's worked out really well. And it doesn't mean that trials and tribulations don't happen. Of course they do that's like but then how do you look at them? And how do you turn them around? And how do you use them for your benefit? I really want people to watch. Well, so I have Skullbound TV, which is my fast channel on carbon TV. And it's like Nat Geo history, you turn it on, it's whatever playing is on. And it's got commercials that run through it that right now I don't have any control of the commercial. You might happen to see a commercial for your George Foreman grill about 20,000 times in a day. But it is my fast channel that is so cool because it's all besides my current season of Skullbound Chronicles. It's everything I've ever filmed on a rotating list. You may be sitting there watching it and it's my first bear I ever killed on season one. And then the next episode could be, you know, catching a 12 foot sturgeon in Oregon River. Like you never know what you're gonna see. But it's all previous 13 years, nine years of Skullbound TV that was on the sportsman channel. And then I've been now I'm in my fifth season on carbon TV. But Skullbound TV is my fast channel on carbon. And then I also have Skullbound Chronicles, which is my show on carbon, but it is like a YouTube channel, you can pick and choose and say, I want to watch that episode or I last year, I did an all veteran season, I did 13 of my favorite veteran hunt that I've ever done all in one season. I recommend people start out with that their stories are amazing. You get to watch an awesome hunt, but to also get to feel so patriotic. And like, I have guys all the time messaging me saying I'm embarrassed to say that she brought me to use them. That's what that veteran season is for. I want people to watch Skullbound and feel like yes, we're doing the right thing. We're animal lovers. We're conservationists. And then I want them to watch season four of Skullbound Chronicles, and be like, I frickin love this country. This is so amazing. That's what I want to take away. You know, you and I got to check quite a bit the other weekend. And it was it was a good time. And the energy was good. The vibe was good, right? I think you could tell the holistic intentions about inviting you on the podcast, right was just wanted to let you spread your message and story further. The question behind that is, of those veterans you've taken, I'm I'm already pretty sure but how many have you got to stay in contact that after that hunt, it's not some people think that it's just Oh, I took this person on a hunt, use their story to build myself up. And I'm, I'm pretty sure how, how, how many of those have you stayed in contact with? There's one that is kind of, he's kind of quiet, and he doesn't really like to talk or text. He's not real. He's kind of a homebody. But out of the, like, there was 13 favorite episodes that I put on that season, but there's probably 15, 16 hunts all together. But every single one of them, I'm in some former contact with their friends of mine, their buddies, their, their, their amazing human beings, and women. I always say the guys, but because I do a lot of combat veteran, obviously, women, they are in combat in ways. In fact, one of the episodes on that veteran season is Shelby hatch. She was a medic nurse. And so she saw the worst of the worst. She actually had to catalog body bags. I mean, I can't imagine somebody having to do that. And that's obviously draining on your soul, you know? Um, so we tried, I took her on her very first antelope hunt, and we've got D. Servi, who's my girl who was in the Air Force. And she was also a sheriff's office. She worked for the sheriff's office three years and years. I took her bear hunting. But like, almost all the guys, I consider them good friends, and we stay in good contact with. But once you share, whether it's a first hunt, a hundred tons, once you share an adventure like that, you know, it's these people become family. It's, you know, you can always look back on the momentum. Remember when we went and did that? No. So and you get to see him around the country at events and follow up and check in. And I'm sure they're sending you subsequent trophy photos and adventures. And so exactly communicating sometimes through social media and tagging each other. But I mean, texts on the phone, phone calls. Let's meet at Expo. Hey, are you going to be at NWTF, all that? Yeah, on a regular basis. And I mean it when I said in one of my shows, I was doing a fine interview for it. And I'm recapping this incredible last 14 years of my life and these amazing veterans that have literally changed my life and my perspective on things that have changed my life.

You might happen to see a commercial for your George Foreman grill about 20 ,000 times in a day. But it is my fast channel that is so cool because it's all besides my current season of Skullbound Chronicles. It's everything I've ever filmed on a rotating list. You may be sitting there watching it and it's my first bear I ever killed on season one. And then the next episode could be, you know, catching a 12 foot sturgeon in Oregon River. Like you never know what you're gonna see. But it's all previous 13 years, nine years of Skullbound TV that was on the sportsman channel. And then I've been now I'm in my fifth season on carbon TV. But Skullbound TV is my fast channel on carbon. And then I also have Skullbound Chronicles, which is my show on carbon, but it is like a YouTube channel, you can pick and choose and say, I want to watch that episode or I last year, I did an all veteran season, I did 13 of my favorite veteran hunt that I've ever done all in one season. I recommend people start out with that their stories are amazing. You get to watch an awesome hunt, but to also get to feel so patriotic. And like, I have guys all the time messaging me saying I'm embarrassed to say that she brought me to use them. That's what that veteran season is for. I want people to watch Skullbound and feel like yes, we're doing the right thing. We're animal lovers. We're conservationists. And then I want them to watch season four of Skullbound Chronicles, and be like, I frickin love this country. This is so amazing. That's what I want to take away. You know, you and I got to check quite a bit the other weekend. And it was it was a good time. And the energy was good. The vibe was good, right? I think you could tell the holistic intentions about inviting you on the podcast, right was just wanted to let you spread your message and story further. The question behind that is, of those veterans you've taken, I'm I'm already pretty sure but how many have you got to stay in contact that after that hunt, it's not some people think that it's just Oh, I took this person on a hunt, use their story to build myself up. And I'm, I'm pretty sure how, how, how many of those have you stayed in contact with? There's one that is kind of, he's kind of quiet, and he doesn't really like to talk or text. He's not real. He's kind of a homebody. But out of the, like, there was 13 favorite episodes that I put on that season, but there's probably 15, 16 hunts all together. But every single one of them, I'm in some former contact with their friends of mine, their buddies, their, their, their amazing human beings, and women. I always say the guys, but because I do a lot of combat veteran, obviously, women, they are in combat in ways. In fact, one of the episodes on that veteran season is Shelby hatch. She was a medic nurse. And so she saw the worst of the worst. She actually had to catalog body bags. I mean, I can't imagine somebody having to do that. And obviously that's draining on your soul, you know? Um, so we tried, I took her on her very first antelope hunt, and we've got D. Servi, who's my girl who was in the Air Force. And she was also a sheriff's office. She worked for the sheriff's office three years and years. I took her bear hunting. But like, almost all the guys, I consider them good friends, and we stay in good contact with. But once you share, whether it's a first hunt, a hundred tons, once you share an adventure like that, you know, it's these people become family. It's, you know, you can always look back on the momentum. Remember when we went and did that? No. So and you get to see him around the country at events and follow up and check in. And I'm sure they're sending you subsequent trophy photos and adventures. And so exactly communicating sometimes through social media and tagging each other. But I mean, texts on the phone, phone calls. Let's meet at Expo. Hey, are you going to be at NWTF, all that? Yeah, on a regular basis. And I mean it when I said in one of my shows, I was doing a fine interview for it. And I'm recapping this incredible last 14 years of my life and these amazing veterans that have literally changed my life and my perspective on things that have changed my life.

You'll have to suffer through me today, guys, but I really am excited. We're going to welcome to another thrilling episode of RadCast Outdoors. We're here in the great indoors talking about the great outdoors. Today I have a pretty special guest. I've been following this person for a while now. A great, just a great advocate for our sport, for the outdoors. She's a remarkable host, outdoors, respected TV show, hailing from Wisconsin, Janna Waller. Thank you so much for having me. I was really excited to meet you last weekend at the Rockman Games and we started chatting all things hunting like people do at those kind of events and I'm excited to just a few days later hop on this podcast, so thanks for having me. Yep, no, that's the greatest way for me to get guests out here is when I'm out and about meeting people. I'm like, hey, by the way, I've got this podcast and it's actually starting to get a little bit of legs under it and it's really exciting. You were the emcee for the night along with your husband who is John, right? Yep, yep. John Baer, otherwise known as Mr. Auctioneer. Mr. Auctioneer. Yeah, he's very good at what he does. I really enjoy having him be the auctioneer and you and the emcee, you guys played back and forth off each other and it was a wonderful evening. You guys obviously work with the Mule Deer Foundation quite a bit and we'll get into that and that relationship, but I want to start, you know, just take us all the way back to the beginning. Where did your love and passion for the outdoors start? If anyone's listened to any other podcast I've done, this is so repetitive, but it is the truth. My dad had a daughter, my older sister Paula, and like a lot of people admittingly really wanted a boy. They only wanted two kids. Well, I came along and thankfully, might I add, in the early 70s, where he didn't have a boy, but he turned me into one, so to speak. You can't even joke about that anymore, but I still do. My dad, I think, saw in me, even at the age of three, I have a photo where I'm three years old. It's my earliest memory of all memories. I remember standing in the garage waiting for him to come home from a duck hunt because I wanted to smell the birds. I vividly remember that and I loved how they felt and how they smelled and just all things waterfowl because that's what he did at the time. He just noticed in me, at such a young age, this love of the outdoors that my sister really didn't have. It just wasn't innate in her. She was a bookworm and into ballerina stuff and maybe a classic girl versus me, sort of the tomboy, if you will. He would let me come along on his bird hunt, let me sit in the blind while he hunted geese on the Horicon Marsh in Wisconsin. I always joked about when I was old enough to walk the pheasant fields of Wisconsin without complaining a whole lot, he let me be his shadow. That was the beginning of it, really, was just being his shadow. When I was in sixth grade, we went out to South Dakota on a couple of different annual pheasant hunts. I didn't even have a gun. I was the bird gutter. I was the official bird gutter. My dad joked back in the day, if Jana doesn't field dress or gut anything, she autopsies everything. That was my start of my fascination with all things animals. I took hunter safety back in 1983, back in the day where I was the only girl in class. Actually, there may have been one other girl. But nowadays, it's 50-50, which is so exciting to see. My start into big game hunting and archery hunting was I sat in the trees with my dad throughout high school. My high school boyfriend was a bow hunter, never got anything, but a bow hunter. I'd sit in the trees with him to just see the wildlife and really never envisioned myself being the hunter. But I loved so much just being surrounded by it and sitting in the trees and watching the woods come alive. I was a freshman in college. I went to Whitewater, Wisconsin, about 10 minutes away from my house. My dad had called me up and he said, I stuck my first buck, but he couldn't find it. He said, do you want to skip class tomorrow and come help me find it? Well, skipping class, heck yeah. Number two, getting to tromps around the woods with my dad. And long story short, I found that buck. It wandered into a cornfield and I was on its track. My dad went another way and I could just tell the tracks were kind of dragging in the dirt and I was looking row to row to row. And I finally saw that gleaming white belly back at me and I'm like, Dad, Dad, I found it. My dad came over and he's a pretty chill dude and I've never seen him more excited. In the weeks and months to come after that, he literally described that moment to his buddies. He equated the excitement to the birth of his two daughters. So I knew that I wanted to know what that felt like and what that was like. And I'd already sat in a tree fence and stuff, but it was that coupled with meeting another gal bow hunter that year that I said, why, why am I not, you know, bow hunting myself? So I picked up a bow that next year, I think it was 19. I got a doe with my bow. And that was the beginning of, you know, 30 plus years of big game hunting. Wow. That was probably a really long answer. That was a great answer. And part of it you touched on was, I know your dad was just there and you were just hanging out with him, right? This is a family affair. This is a tradition that gets passed down generation by generation. And we do see a lot of adult onset hunters and there's nothing wrong and they're welcome to come in the fold. Sure. Come along. I'll show you what I know. But there's a much deeper connection with the outdoors, whether it's hunting, fishing. When you have memories of a young kid, you know, three, four or five catching your first trout on a bobber and a worm, right? And then when you're going along, like you just mentioned, pheasant hunting, you were the, you were the official gutter because, well, you weren't old enough to carry a gun, have your license or shoot. But you have those memories, those core memories of I got to go with dad and that was dad in mine's time. So you really have just highlighted, I know it was a long answer, but you've highlighted exactly why Patrick and I are so passionate about taking our families and promoting what we love, which is the outdoors. Whether that's photography, mountain biking, trail hiking is lower on the list. I've done some 50 milers, but anymore, I like to put a weapon and a tag in my pocket, load up that same equipment, maybe a fishing pole and a backpack, do the 50 mile hike, catch a few fish along the way. But once I get to the pinnacle of the mountain, I want to sit up there and look around and go, oh, where's the sheep? Where's the elk? Where's the bear? How do they interact in this country? And it's just a way to be deeper connected with nature, much more so than hiking. Absolutely. I've always said that it's about a connection. If you go back 14 years and look at the very first opening of Skullbound TV, I said that it's a connection to the planet. And when I say to the planet, I mean, the planet, the wildlife, other people, our food, you know, and honestly, until COVID, I don't think most adults ever and a lot of adults anyway, non hunters, I mean, haven't never thought about a connection to their food. Now, in the last few years with the craziness of COVID and such, first time ever, we've gone into grocery stores with empty shelves. Hunters weren't that concerned about it. I don't know about you, but I've always had an extra freezer fully stocked, not too concerned. But non hunters there, and I, I definitely have seen a rise of adult onset hunters and in part in the last few years because of COVID and getting outdoors was the only thing people could do, the organic movement. But all of that really is such a deeper connection to people, our food and the great outdoors, like you said. A hundred percent. Farmers and ranchers have known that forever. Patrick likes to raise and slaughter his own pigs. I've done it a few times. We butchered a beef one year, but Janna and I have three freezers and there's, there's protein in there. It's usually ungulate, most, most likely whoppity, but sometimes there's, there's some mountain goat or some black bear or a mountain lion or something, doll sheep occasionally. I think it's all gone. I wish we could get some more. I got a question for you. Okay. You know, you're kind of known for skull art. Where did that come from? Where'd your passion come from and how did you kind of combine that? I mean, that's the name of the TV show, right? Skullbound, right? Yep. It's actually goes back to accrediting my dad. Um, he, this goes back. Oh, so the show goes back almost 14 years, but my scholar goes back about 20 years and my dad was in New Mexico on a trip, saw a Native American style painted ram skull. And he said, why don't you start doing these with some of your skulls? Cause I had skulls from hunt that were European mounted skulls. I have found in the, this was back living in Wisconsin and the Whisco woods, skulls that I've always been a skull freak. If I go to like a yard sale and there's a cool spear skull or a Buffalo skull, I would buy it no matter what. So I always had a big skull collection. And he said, why don't you start doing this with some of your skulls? So I did, I started painting them. And at the time I actually worked for Edward Jones investments. That was my previous life before this life. I live enough. I actually, some of my friends saw goals that were either on my wall at my house or in the office. And Hey, could you do that for my husband or boyfriend or those are really cool. And one thing led to another. And then I started to donate them to my dad. Ducks Unlimited banquets, Pheasants Forever, those kinds of things. And it was super fun to donate my skull, see what it would go for, raise money for conservation, which I was really passionate about even way before moving out West. So that was the birth of my skull art. It's no surprise my ex and I started Skullbound TV. And when we were trying to figure out number one, what kind of show we wanted to do. He did previous outdoor hunting shows, wanted to start a new one. We really wanted it to be solo female hosted because there weren't any at the time on the network. So we're trying to figure out what to call it. And we decided to call it Skullbound because of my skull art and that we were bound to make a difference, both in conservation and in, I really wanted to show people through the hunting show that we hunters are the greatest animal lovers on the planet. That was my goal because even growing up in the 70s, 80s, 90s and onward, there's always been that challenge when you meet someone who has no clue what hunting is and they think we're a bunch of hillbillies with a wad of tobacco in our lips shooting from the truck. Unfortunately, that's how mainstream media has often portrayed us. And so it was my goal when we started Skullbound to show that we're the greatest conservationists in this planet and that we're huge animal lovers. Once again, a really long answer. But there's a dichotomy in there and people will say, well, how can you be an animal lover and take an animal's life? And we've covered it on the podcast. You've covered it and people know and I'll summarize it in we put our money where our mouth is a, but b, if you go through and look at the biology of what we do. Right. We're taking one to save the 99 and that's all it is. We're removing one species from one specimen of that species from the population so that the others can have a healthier environment. And if you're not open to looking at that from a scientific data driven mindset, we can't have a conversation. That's just a fact. Exactly. John bear said it's about my husband. He said, We have wildlife because we hunt wildlife. And that's true. And it really is. And it can be right hard for people. I've been sitting on an airplane next to people. My favorite conversation I've ever had with an anti was this African American professor from McGill University. And we sat together and I sat down and he, I, he, he said, first thing I was also with, you know, hello. And then he said, so what do you do? And I said, well, I, I host a hunting show and his first thing out of his mouth was, you're not one of those NRA freaks, are you? And I said, as a matter of fact, I kind of as a matter of fact, yes, we had a two and a half hour conversation. He was he grew up in inner city Chicago. And we had a amazing conversation that was open minded. He was a vegan, anti hunting anti gunner. And we had a conversation and he literally wrote me an email the next day, we exchanged our cards. And he said, you have my mind spinning. This is the first time I have ever spoken with anyone, especially a woman who loves guns, loves hunting, and doesn't look at the both of those as being bad. And obviously, this is a professor, I'm a very intelligent man. And it was a beautiful conversation. I do have to say it's the only beautiful conversation I've ever had with an anti. But it really meant something to me. And it reminds me all the time, that if we can have open, respectful conversations, because I was super respectful to his viewpoints as well, that then we can maybe at least better understand one another. And one thing is for sure is that he did not know that connection between the fact that hunters pay for the majority of wildlife management in this country. I mean, we went deep in those two and a half hours, but it was a beautiful thing. And it's part of the reason I started to go well. That's amazing. That's exactly what everybody who is involved in the outdoors, whether you're just a hobby duck hunter who goes one weekend a year, right? Or you're somebody like you and I who have TV shows, companies and lifestyles completely built around it, you know, we are taking part. And we are one little small piece. And we need to remember that there's two places on the globe that wildlife numbers have increased in the 21st century. It's North America and South Africa. And South Africa adopted a similar wildlife model to the North American conservation model, right? Hunters pay to harvest animals, those dollars go to pay for habitat and to pay for conservation officers to protect and biologists to set limits. And the model works. We've proven it works. And if you want to argue that it doesn't, go look at mule deer, antelope, whitetail, bison, the list goes on. Turkey, they were almost all extinct, all of them. And they're all been brought back from the edge to record numbers in some of those species cases. Exactly. It's a it's definitely a missed message. But I think slowly but surely through social media and open dialogue like that, I think people are understanding. Unfortunately, you know, the anti have hundreds of millions of dollars behind their cause as well. But anytime I've had a conversation with a non hunter, I'm not saying anti, there's definitely different categories, a non hunter and explain to them the North American conservation model. And why I hunt and why I choose to mount my animals and why I eat organic fresh meat that I know where it comes from, all those kind of things. Those one on one conversations can be really powerful. I've got a whole list of questions. But I really this one, I know I have a bunch of bear skulls, a bunch of cougar skulls, I got a bunch of mounts around the house. But I want to hear from your perspective. Take one of the most memorable hunts you can come up with, whether it be a bear hunt and elk hunt. And you can tell us what it is here in a moment. But you know, you bring that trophy home, you clean that skull and you put it in your house. What is what does that skull mean to you? Why? Why is it in your house? Why is it even there? It's the exact equivalent to someone having a photo album of their family. You know, why do we take so many baby pictures of our kids when they're little? You know, why do we document graduations and weddings and and look back years later at those photos and they create that feeling of Oh, remember that or moments in time where we were happy or thriving or or our family was and it's the exact equivalent to that. My house is filled with tangible memories. Every single hide, piece of art, skull, even sheds, I've shed the door. I remember most of those not as much as the hunt. But every every month, for example, is just a tangible memory for me to share with other people. Like I just right before the podcast, my father in law came by with John's nephew, Dallin. And down was first time he's been in our new house and he looked around and they just were in and out. Super short visit on the way to the doctor. And, you know, I said, You got to come back. I want to tell you the story of every month in the house, you know. And he was like, Well, what's that? And he just had all these questions. But the answer tried to boil down my answer. They're tangible memories that I relive every time I look at them and share that story. What is one of your earliest tangible memories, whether it be hunting, fishing, big game, small game? What is one that just one of the it doesn't have to be the earliest one? What is what is a special memory, a special trip that really sticks out in your mind? Well, the two I already kind of mentioned that was finding my dad's Wisconsin buck, the first buck he ever arrowed, and I was 18. And then literally three years old, I've got a photo where I'm sitting. I've got my my probably long underwear, boots and a jacket on in the garage. And I'm touching one of my dad's ducks. And I think I'm three, maybe four, those that those two really, I talked about and I think about a lot. One of my favorite kind of newer stories, really was, again, my dad. And again, in all the hunt I've ever been on, they're all special in their own way. You know, whether it was super challenging, or like the moose on the wall behind me. That was an Alaska sort of DIY hunt that was amazing with Ben and Taylor Woolers. They all have different components to them. That means something so much to them. But for me, it was four years ago, I had gone through a big change in my life, my ex and I split. And I was doing skull bone with him for 10 years. And so I didn't know what that looked like. I didn't know what my future looked like. I didn't know if I wanted to have a camera guy, a strange camera guy, you know, following me around all the time. But you think about it, I'm backpacking or doing backcountry hunts and sleeping in a tent. And, you know, just I just didn't know if I was going to move forward with skull bone and what that looked like. I, I didn't know we lived together in a home in Montana. I didn't know. So my life was going to be uprooted. I didn't know what that looked like. It was an emotional but amazing time for me. I, as you know, women sort of going through midlife at the same time of trying to figure things out. I decided I was going to move on with skull bone. All my partners after reaching out to them were like, heck yeah, we're, you know, I basically had the same partners I've had since day one, just a couple of different ones have changed. But I'm just really, really blessed in that category. So did some digging, called up my buddy, he, hey, he, what do you think about and he was kind of a guy who was close to me friends with him and his wife, you want to be a cameraman? Would you like to be my full time editor? Absolutely. So that was all good. But still emotionally, like trying to move forward from, you know, a lot of pain. And I went to my dad, my dad had called me and said, I sold the cabin. And for me, it was heartbreaking, because my dad's cabin in Wisconsin, it was 20 years of incredible memories. Awesome deer hunt. I mean, in my dad's kind of old school. He's hilarious, but he's, he's never owned a trail camera. Well, maybe he has, but not, he might put it in the backyard above the bird feeder. Like, we never had food plots. You know, this was old school Wisconsin hunting. My dad's dad, my grandpa who was no longer I've never got to hunt with him. But my dad was telling me the story on this particular hunt, I'm going to share that he we were laughing so hard because I remember he goes, I remember my dad saying, nothing ruins a Wisconsin deer camp, like someone getting a tear down drinking and eating. So that's kind of my dad's mentality, even though, you know, when he was in his 60s, like 20 years ago, we were hardcore archery hunters together. Now my dad's in his 80s doesn't hunt as much but long story short, is going through this challenging time in my life. I went to my dad said I sold the cabin, but we're going to have one last weekend of rifle gun hunt. And so I was so emotional about saying goodbye to the cabin. 20 years I've had up there amazing memories, the Wisconsin fish fries, you know, everybody standing around with their brandy Manhattans or brandy old fashions. And, you know, it was it's just memories again, that connection like you talked about. And so I decided I was going to go sit in my rifle stand that I hadn't that I hadn't rifle hunted that but maybe one time in the last decade. I really even at the start of skullbound didn't hunt Wisconsin a whole lot, just because I'm so crazy busy all fall, and living in Montana, you know, hunting elk. And everything else and antelope and deer, it was tough to get back. But so I went back, I said, Okay, I last minute plan to go back and hunt just Saturday, Sunday with my dad and the family Friday night before the hunt, I walked through the woods to go check my stand. Thank God I did because it was worked shut. It was a box line that you walk up the ladder stand into this box line. All the windows are broken out the roof caving in the door was worked shut. I had to basically football drill my way through the door. Not a good thing to do opening morning. So anyway, it was just nostalgic. You know, I literally Friday afternoon sat in that box flying for an hour and just thought of all the amazing memories that I'm going to say that I had for two decades with my dad out there. And, you know, this is about an hour and a half where I live from where I lived in Wisconsin. And every single archery season, I was running up there bow hunting by myself all the time, sometimes with my dad, sometimes not. I would skip work Wednesdays, drive up, sit Wednesday night drive home by myself like I was just my thing. And Saturday morning comes. I knew it was my Saturday and Sunday were my last two days that I would ever be on this property. And I'm just feeling so nostalgic. You know, there's frost all over everything. It's absolutely beautiful. This is the week before Thanksgiving in Wisconsin. Wisconsin sun season is only nine days, and I only had two days and you know, I'm just being super nostalgic. And I see a deer and mind you, the second I sat down there Friday and like this is so overgrown. I'm never gonna see anything. No one had sat in that stand for years. And like, no, I'm not gonna see anything, but I'm just gonna soak it all in. Long story short, I see a buck. He runs off in the woods about 100 yards. And I'm like, that's cool. I saw a buck opening morning. That's good. Good luck. And it wasn't probably 10 minutes later, I hear of the leaves below my stand. And I lean out the window and look. And there is a buck that in your mind's eye, I just usually I go shooter, no shooter, like I make the decision and then I'm not going to focus in on his breath because I'm gonna freak myself out. He literally brushes by the ladder of the stand. He's so close. I got my I think I had my 26 nozzle or at the time suppressed. This thing's huge. I can't even get the barrel low enough to shoot the fuck. I get up off my chair. I moved to the back window. He's out about 35 yards now I drunk stop him shoot. He kicks runs off. And all of this by the way I film a little bits on my cell phone. It's all on highlight lights in my Instagram story. But I just knew I shot a great buck. I didn't know what I shot. Now mind you, I killed a bunch of 131 40s up there over the years that those are really nice bucks on my dad's place. Everything is relative. But 131 40s is a nice archery buck up there. It's brown, it sounds kind of the motto of my dad. I got up to this book and long story short, it's a 16 pointer 170 inch whitetail and he's just beautiful. And I literally just couldn't believe it. I've never I've never seen that book or any book like it. No one nothing is ever weird at my dad. And he was definitely non typical had sort of a second in line beam. He's right on the wall right back there. But I got up to it and it it's so much more than just who I got a big buck to me in my life at the time. It was almost as if God was tapping me on the shoulder and going, You got this. It's okay. But everything's good. This is this is all good. And it's funny. I was telling the story months later at shot show to my friend Brandon Lilly. And he was like, Tell me about that book. So I told him the whole story and how emotional I was that weekend this I'm saying goodbye to my dad's cabin. And I was given this beautiful gift of this buck. It's almost like you've got this and goodbye. And and I said I sat there with this bucket. And I set up my camera on a stump and I pushed record on video just trying to get a screen grab of how nice he looked. And I literally stopped for a minute and it was almost as if the woods were just glowing gold. It was a spiritual moment. I know it sounds crazy, but it was. And Brandon without skipping a beat said, Well, didn't you ever think maybe you were the one making those woods blow? That's such a beautiful thing to say. And like to me, and of all my memory, and then I got to text my dad, you are not going to believe this. When I texted him and said I got a 16 pointer down. He was like, sure you did. Like we always joke with each other. And I'm sure he was thinking I was pulling his leg. But when I drug I feel dressed and drug him to the road, walk back to the cabin. And there was I think, I don't know, eight or 10 of us at the cabin friends and my dad. When my dad saw that box, like he was so excited for me and just hugs all around. And it was so special to share my last weekend at the cabin with my dad. He was there. Watching him spin this book in his hands and just being so excited that someone got a nice box finally, and that we could say goodbye like that. It was it was a really beautiful thing that too, if there happens to be a non hunter listening to this, they're gonna think I'm crazy. But I would bet most hunters out there can relate. No, what what a fitting end to a legacy, right? I mean, you're, you're got the emotions of, I got to say bye to the childhood cabin where I where you started hunting where where Skullbound really did start, right? You're there, you know, you're saying goodbye. Yeah, it wasn't a childhood cabin, because I bet my dad got it when I was, I'm old. So you know, maybe my late 20s. I think he got he got it when I was in my late 20s. But that was that's adulthood in my in my life anyway, kind of like you segment out, you know, your college days, you're still a child, your 20s. You don't know who you are yet. You know, 30s Oh, you can't figure out who you are. And this is great. And then 40s were amazing. And I'm in my 50s. And I love it. Like I wouldn't go back in time for anything. I've never been more comfortable in my own skin. I've never loved life more than I love it right now. But I section out like that life when I think back and I try to think when hunts were in moments and stuff. But yes, this was my adulthood cabin where I have so many amazing memories with my dad. And it was really hard to say goodbye to it. It's hard to watch your parents get older, too, you know, and, and to have my dad not care as much about hunting as he used to. And it just is what it is, you know, but it was it was a beautiful goodbye to that period of my life. No, we all we all get to go through that. And I did a doll sheep film with my dad and all the listeners know about it has been three years ago, four years ago now. But we went and did a film this last year on Kodiak for goats, and it's getting ready to launch here in a month or so I've been working on it really hard. But just seeing the transition from my dad and and I'm gonna drop a hint here, you know, dad on the on the film, this latest one, he says this is his last month mountain hunt, he's done. He's hanging it up, right. And that's some of the same emotion you're bringing up is, I can remember being in seven, eight, following my dad with my six year old little brother behind me telling him to turn around saying, be quiet, you're making too much noise, we're not going to get anything, because I really wanted to get something. And I was just, I was just the skinner, right? I was just the bird, bird feather plucker. And I can remember that trip, we never got anything. For two or three years, I would go for a weekend. I think it was just my mom said, take those boys and get out of this house and don't come back. But from a young age wanted to harvest a deer, right? That's I just we got to get one we got to get one. I watched Disney Bambi and I just wanted to shoot Bambi's dad even as a little kid. So, you know, they might have put that movie out to create more people who are against hunting, but I still am chasing Bambi's dad haven't haven't found him yet. So being an advocate for wildlife, how do you encourage your viewers to become stewards of wildlife? groups that we both belong to. Now, some I'm really active involved in and others I pay the 30 bucks a year and I'm just a member. But I think it's really important for people to get involved on a local level, whether you're into mule deer Foundation, or you love turkey hunting. So you join the National Wild Turkey Federation, or Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation or the Sportsman for Fish and Wildlife. I mean, I'm even a member of the American Bear Foundation, like there's so many out there, join them. And most of those, especially the bigger ones have local chapters near you to get involved. Go to one of their dinners. Sometimes in the summer, they've got picnic rallies, go to one of their events, become a member, sign up for the email list, and and join in on the volunteering. There's, you know, out here, Wes, I just moved from Montana to Utah, but they're constantly putting in water guzzlers taking down fence planting stage rate having fundraisers to raise money because this mountain sign needs to be drug meaning all the scrub brush, the oak brush needs to be pulled because it kills everything below all habitat projects like that. There's so many fun ways to get involved. But if you can join one of your local groups, it's an easy in. Otherwise, it can be kind of intimidating. Like where do you start? I don't know anybody, but I would definitely recommend people join a local conservation group, and then join them all on social media and follow them along. And they certainly helped me in knowing what's going on with all the different chapters. They helped me talk the talk. You know, I walk the walk all the time. I'm hunting non stop. But how do we talk the talk? How do we tell people what we're all about? Like the video that was played at the rockman games last weekend. That was the 35th anniversary mule deer Foundation video that was created by my business partner. He he does such an amazing job. And we the conservation groups have to tell their stories more. And better because they're good at raising money and they're good at protecting wildlife and habitat. They're not always good at telling their story. People don't know what those foundations do or organizations do. But we need to tell those stories. And we need to share those stories on social media. And we need to get involved 100% if you if you need to take a seat at the table and be involved and have a voice in the conversation and help steer steer the outcome of this don't just sit down and complain and you're right that there's there's even more organizations and you mentioned you got Oak Foundation, you got trout unlimited, you got pheasant forever. I mean, it continues on and on and on. So join one. Right? I do have a question. You know, you've got 11 nonprofits, you help assist or are on some level, you got the TV show, you're emceeing helping, right doing all this, how do you balance all these different avenues in life, including all these big hunts? Because that's as just that's a question as a business owner, how do you balance all that? It's hard, it can be really hard. I definitely don't have a work schedule. I work evenings, weekends, whenever it comes up. And nowadays, I still have the TV show. But yet, a lot of how I work with my my partners is social media content. So I'm taking the evening to produce some videos to talk about, you know, the products that I use, I try to do it. We're very organically, like, what am I using right now? Or how is this helped me, but it is hard to balance that time, especially with travel, travel so hard, because I don't know if you're like me, but when I travel, I need recoup time, like, even when I'm like, I go to a lot of fun. But then I also do a ton of banquets, and a ton of expos and hunting, you know, shows across the country. And you know, on either side of that travel for a day, and then you're gone two or three days, especially at a show, sometimes longer, sometimes a week, and a hunt, you're going seven to 10 days. And then you get home and real life catches you, right, you've got bills to pay, you've got laundry to do, you've got a house to clean, you've got to see family and friends who want to be a part of your life. And they're so important, they should be number one. And so you got to make time for them. And so it is hard. The best way that I have learned to balance all that, like you said, is to just literally go with my intuition and my gut, I've learned to say no to a lot of things that maybe, maybe it would have been really good for me to go to this Expo for three days. And, you know, I would have gotten, I would have been able to go for free, put on a seminar, make a little money. But at the same time, I also maybe I haven't been home in a long time. And I am kind of a homebody. When I'm not hunting or fishing. I love to be home. I don't go out. I don't like do a whole lot. I don't even like to go to the movies. Like I like to be in and like, I like to stay home. And so it's really just I feel like going with my intuition on things.
A highlight from BCB121_JOE CARLASARE: Macro Insights & Legal Hurdles
"Prognostications what about Bitcoin is going to do, you know, just and again, I don't want to get into a models debate, all this stuff. I understand that all models are wrong and models have utility and all this jazz. But when your average normie at the firehouse, which is what you guys talk to, right, when you tell them Bitcoin is going to be 10 million dollars in today's purchasing power in four years. Like, I mean, these types of things, like I think they're ridiculous. I mean, you lose credibility. And by the way, you ultimately set yourself up or at least set those people up to be disappointed. This is the Blue Collar Bitcoin Podcast, a show where Average Joe firefighters explore the most important monetary technology of the 21st century. We talk Bitcoin, we talk finance and we talk shit. Hello, and thank you for stopping by Strap In for an epic rip with Joe Carlessare. Joe likes to ruffle feathers. He is a lawyer by trade and completely at home with an argument that makes you uncomfortable. Honestly, that's what we love about him. He is not married to an idea. He is completely at ease, allowing the data to guide him. In this rip, we covered Joe's macro insights at length. The consensus view is that the recession is inbound. Joe makes a great case that this mystical recession could be further off than most people think. We cover some of the ongoing litigation with Coinbase and why it may not be nearly as in the bag as most plebs believe it is. Overall, you may not agree with Joe's takes, but you would be a fool not to listen to him intently. Throughout this discussion, we are reminded of just how many scammers proliferate in the crypto space. The only way that you can be sure that your Bitcoin is safely held by you and you alone is by cold storing with a cold card Mark 4. CoinKite has gone to great lengths to simplify a very complex idea and allow anyone who is worried about custodial risk to take matters into their own hands and actually own their Bitcoin. We highly recommend you get elbows deep in self custody. And when you set up a Mark 4, you will sleep like a baby knowing that you actually own your Bitcoin. Dan, I think the two of us have been more confused by no one else than Joe. Carlos, sorry, you confused the shit out of me, dude. I love you to tears. You're one of our favorite guests. We look forward to you. And I'm not just buttering your muffin unnecessarily here. We look forward to talking to you as much as anyone. Although Dan has a proclivity to butter muffins more than most. I'm a muffin butter. Yeah, I'm a talented muffin butter. But part of the reason we like talking to you is because you do confuse us. You're a bit of a contrarian. I confuse myself, by the way, for the record. Well, then, you know what? We're we're on the same page then. The other thing that's confusing about you, Joe, is your motor, dude, what spectating you. You're you're on Twitter spaces every goddamn time I log in. You're a lawyer by day. You are up to speed. It feels like on everything with markets. You're writing a novel. I mean, Josh, it has to be cocaine. I don't know what else cocaine. It's either cocaine or Joe is just way more adept at chat GPT than the most of us. Because is it actually lawyering for you at this point, Joe? It's the biggest my biggest advantage and also what I call a disadvantage is I sleep very little. I actually made it a goal to try to get more sleep. It's like one of the one New Year's resolution I'm doing terribly on. I'm doing great on everything else. But the sleep is awful. And my wife hates it because I'm like grinding away at something till two or three in the morning and waking her up when I go to bed. But other than that, like I've got a lot of things under control. Isn't that when the best idea happened, though? When you wake up at two o 'clock in the morning, you're like, wait a second, I should write this down. And then I fail to do it. And I wake up the next morning and I'm like, what was that great idea? It's like the great ideas you have when you're stillness and silence those down. And they're like, oh, that was stupid, guys. Honestly, the stillness and silence of late night hours are incredible. They're just incredible. I mean, I feel like today we're so accustomed to the bells and the dings and the guy calling you and you never get away from anything. And, you know, something's breaking. The suit is breaking. You can't have really deep thoughts even with yourself. So like I treasure those late night hours, even though they're terrible for me because I rarely get recommended hours of sleep. I mean, literally, I do my best thinking every night between midnight and one. I think it's an important point, though. Everybody, you need to carve out time to think and ponder beyond just finance, life in general. For me, I think my deepest thoughts, three spaces during workouts, which is also an inconvenient time. I'm in the middle of a freaking five mile run and I have a great thought and I'm like, fuck, my phone's back at home or it's in my, you know, that's number one. Number two, on walks in nature. And then three, my go to is fire pit out back at night, which is the same thing because I'm up till 11 or midnight. I shouldn't be, but looking up at the stars, the stillness of the evening is one of those areas where I really get profile, get cosmic. Ooh, Dan, I was a hundred percent sure you were going for taking a dump on number three. But wow, that's where Twitter happens. Yeah, that's where Twitter happens. Yeah. Do you run a lot? Is running an area? Are you like me, Joe, where you're in the middle of a run and you, something clicks? No, because running is when I really dig into audiobooks. So I have to, I have to double, double time that. So I'm, I'm almost always either listening to an audio book or a podcast when I'm running, which what are your, what are your audio books of choice? Do you do, is it fiction? Do you listen to, what do you listen to generally? I mean, I, I try to, I really think fiction's important. Um, not only because I have so much analytical, uh, material that I digest, right? Like I have to have a release in something about like, you know, the Stephen King book that just came out, fairytale, those sorts of things. I have to do that. How many books is that guy on? Oh, it's incredible. He's on like 55 books. I think the guy's like the most prolific author of all time. If you count all of his novellas, I think he's over 200. And by the way, he has another one coming out next month that I've already pre -ordered. It's called Holly. How the, it's gotta be amphetamines too, Josh. There's no other explanation. Cocaine. No, it's incredible how much you can achieve if you're always doing something right. And like, I, I constantly get, I'm actually trained myself, like at this point where I get very upset and nervous, like when I'm not doing something productive. Um, my wife says I can't relax. Like, she's like, you're always talking to somebody, you're always writing something, you're always reading something you need to relax. And she's right. Right. So that's like why I gravitate to those early morning hours, you know, uh, midnight to 2 AM. But, but honestly, like, I feel if you do it enough and you're constantly busy and like in my line of work, guys, I have to account for every 10th of a minute. Right. I bill. Right. So to me, I got so good at like getting my billable hours done so that I have additional time to devote to my other resources. It all spiraled into all these other areas where I'm like, now I just always am reading something, writing something, doing something, talking. It's, I'm not saying it's good, it's good way to live, but, uh, it definitely makes you productive. Talk to us about this novel you're writing. Oh yeah. I can't go too far into that, uh, you know, cause I'm, I'm, I'm, I'm going to save it, but it's a, so it's, uh, it's loosely inspired by some elements of Bitcoin in cases that I've had legal cases. It's a legal thriller. I am not the protagonist. I'm not cool enough to be the protagonist, but there's more of a, there's more of a traditional, uh, you know, a legal protagonist that is, uh, mixed and matched into some real sticky situation. And at the core of it is Bitcoin. Um, so I think people are going to read it. And my goal is this, like, my goal is that people, uh, enjoy a good story. Like a solid story with good character development. I mean, obviously there's a great character arc for the people that put in there, but beyond that, what I want people to take away from it is I want them to sort of understand some things about Bitcoin. You don't get through the popular culture, right? All you hear about is price, price, price, right? You don't hear about how Bitcoin is stored. You don't hear about how it's sent. You don't hire about private public key management, all these really intricate, intricate things that we geek out about in Bitcoin spaces and on Twitter about like, I want them to actually play a role in a narrative. Have you written another book or no, is this your first book? Uh, this will be, I mean, I'm saying even just for fun, not published. Have you tried other ideas? Yeah, I have tried other ideas. I mean, like I was writing short stories and stuff going back to grade school, but nothing that I'm proud of or this one, I will, I will get published. Right. I mean, that's the kind of intensity I'm approaching it with. Awesome. I'm excited about it. And I'm excited because I don't think there's any real, I was talking with American huddle about this. There's like no real good. I mean, even if you throw in crypto, there's no real good crypto movies, stories, fiction out there, right? There's nothing like there's that really. Hopefully somebody makes an SPF movie. Oh, I'm sure there will be. I mean, there's certainly something on that. I have a buddy actually, who's a, who's a screenwriter. He just wrote and directed a film. It's going to be out. It's called Pools. His name is Sam Hayes. He has been, he's one of my best friends, roomed with him in college. He, him and I have been talking for a couple of years about the idea of him writing a Bitcoin screenplay. And he is, he texted me about a month ago and then I saw him on a trip and he's seriously considering embarking on that project. So shout out to Sam. Hopefully that gets off the ground and we'll update if that's the case. Cause yeah, there's a real void of content in a space that could really use it. You have an immediate captive audience if you do it right and you do it thoroughly. And Bitcoin's money, right? So like how many interesting thriller ideas could you have where money is the goal, right? Heist movies, all these different things. Like with Bitcoin, I mean, I think it's just, it's a, it's kind of weird that it hasn't been more. Yeah, yeah, it really is. The guy who lost the laptop with like a hundred thousand Bitcoins on it. I mean, that's gotta be, I don't think his story has ended yet. He's probably still digging through that, that dumps, that dump site himself, but when he does end up, you know, offing himself afterwards, they'll be a good movie about it. Josh, I'm almost afraid to box in a wild animal like Carl Asare with a question off the top. Should we just, let's just throw it to you, Joe, what, what, what's on your mind today? How do you want to start this conversation? And then we'll, we'll go from there. So I think you have to start the conversation with what's going on in the economy. So I mean, as much as I'm passionate about Bitcoin, right? I love Bitcoin, but I always have to step back and say, okay, here's where Bitcoin fits into the broader macro picture. Right. And that's important because my belief in Bitcoin is continually confirmed by the mess that's going on in the macro picture. I have very different views, as you know, about than many of the macro Bitcoin people, which is fine. We have great spirited debates, but like the notion now that we're sitting here in 2023 and you're sitting with rates, you know, bearing down on 6 % or within an earshot of 6 % in the Fed funds rate. And you just saw a massive jump in tax receipts today. I mean, then you saw some economic data for the last couple of weeks that is continuing to be strong and robust. I think it would completely confound people. Like if we were on this podcast last year when we were talking with Greg or whatever, and I were to tell you, nope, the economy will be cruising along. We'll still have secular lows and unemployment. We'll still have a real estate market that is frozen. But obviously, prices are crazy. You'll have stock market with the stock market will be within 5 % of the all time high. And by the way, you'll have Jerome Powell saying that he's not going to cut rates for two years. I mean, just it would be awesome to go back in time. Right. Because, like, I remember being in these spaces and really smart people like, you know, I remember vividly talking with Lynn Alden and she was asked a question. Do you think the Fed can raise rates? And her response was, no, not for any significant period of time. Well, they're over a year now. Right. And if they hold them there, as they say, for another two years, does that qualify as a significant period of time? And you have to wonder why. And we can, you know, as detectives, right, like when you're analyzing this data, you shouldn't get tied into these narratives or tropes about here's how this works or here's how this. And every time the Fed raises, things blow up. You have to really approach it like a detective. You can have a hypothesis. You could have a theory or prime suspect, but you got to finally dig under the hood and figure out what's going on. And I think that I'm continually trying to get closer and closer to what's really going on. That's what I want to talk with you guys about on this program. So do I have the ability here to like share charts? Is that like something that? Yeah, you can, but we we've had issues with that in the past. But I mean, I say send it and we'll try to sort it out. Do you see the share button down there? Yeah. OK, yeah. Go for it. Just for this one, if it doesn't work, it doesn't work. Right. OK, let's see. While pulling you're that up, I mean, I continue to go back to just the age old adage, more money is lost preparing for bear markets than actually in them. Oh, yeah, I mean. And there's a ton of truth to that over the last couple of years. It's like, but no, just wait. And the timeline keeps moving out. So, oh, it's going to be next quarter. No, it's going to be next quarter. No, it's going to be next quarter, assuredly. Well, it's still not coming. I've sat through major bear market drawdowns, right? I've sat through huge, terrible gut wrenching movements downward in Bitcoin. And at the same time, I focus a lot on the macro data. And people ask me all the time, well, why are you spending all this time on the macro data if you're not going to sell Bitcoin, if you're not going to try to trade the market, if you're not going to time it? And the reason is it's not because I'm trying to look for a trading edge, right? I do do some limited trading here on certain macro assets, but that's more of like for fun. You know, that's like 5 % of my portfolio. The vast majority of my stuff, both stocks and Bitcoin is long term hold positions. The reason I focus all on the macro information is because I want to know how close we are on the progression towards a movement, towards Bitcoin. It isn't because I'm trying to time and double my stack or things like that. It's because I want to figure out like, OK, is this really significant? You know, remember we were talking about the banking crisis back in March, right? I was looking at it objectively. And, you know, while it appeared scary at the time, right, I think like there was plenty of evidence to suggest it was a tempest in a teapot. It wasn't necessarily going to spill over and move to the Bellagio route of, you know, collapsing the entire banking system. There's just you didn't see those issues systemic throughout the entire banking system. But anyway. Hey, Joe, before this chart, I want to just ask you a simple question. Warren Buffett has said over and over again, he doesn't worry about macro. He worries about, you know, the specific companies, the moat that they're creating. And that's why he his basic thesis is that macro is just so difficult and so hard to wrap your arms around. It's so complex and nobody ever really gets it right. And the more I kind of watch the from my perspective, I tend to think as much as the sacrilege to agree with Buffett in Bitcoin, he seems to be right largely about macro. It's just so difficult to general. It's almost like weather predicting a year out. There's so many variables in that. How do you, what's your approach to that? When when Warren Buffett says he's not focused on macro, he's not buying companies and trading companies based on macro. OK, that's a big difference. And people get really confused. And this is one thing I rail against. Like when you got the people that are on these spaces talking about the end of the world and the collapse of Western civilization. Because people hear that and implicitly they think, I need to sell stocks. I need to sell my portfolio. I need to sell my house. I need to be in gold, in a bunker with a gun and whiskey. And that's my only chance. Like to me, don't forget cigarettes. Right. And cigarettes. So to me, like that kind of narrative, I think is is very it hurts a lot of people. It really does because it dissuades them from buying Bitcoin at much cheaper levels. It dissuaded them from buying last fall because people were talking about the end of the world. It people, encourages I think, to think in a short sighted manner when at the end of the day, even if things get bad from here, there's going to be something on the other end. And you should be positioned for that. And you shouldn't try to time it. But for well, it's also like it's also a fatalistic, nihilistic approach. More broadly, like you should not be rooting against the major societal organization strategies. We don't want global poverty. We don't want rampant suffering. I mean, this is said in Bitcoin all the time, but it should be reiterated. I mean, you don't want to wish for the implosion of global financial markets. And anyone that does, I don't think understands how big of a deal that would be and how painful and sad that would be for humanity. Correct. I mean, in the thing that kind of makes me sets me off, if there's one thing is that I have members of my family, I've talked about this before, like, you know, they were convinced by the gold bugs. And now they're living in, you know, a much more impoverished retirement because they put all their money in gold and were afraid of the stock market. They've been hearing about like how sound money is going to take over everything and fiat will collapse for 30, 40 years. So to me, like, you know, those kind of messages, we really have to temper as Bitcoiners. But the one thing I'll just say is that macro is really important. You shouldn't discount it for understanding the world we're living in. Things like demographic trends, things like where, you know, how populations are moving, the over indebtedness and pressure that's going to put in certain markets moving forward. But macro cannot be utilized for trading in the short run. And it's very simple reason why, because markets are dynamic systems. They're not linear. It's not as simple as Fed raises interest rates, markets crash. It's not that simple. If that were true, then every single person could just follow a very simple rubric and make a lot of money in markets. But as you can see in certain dynamics, when people think the boat's all going to go one way, it actually flips the other way because how people get position moves. It's a dynamic system. It's not one that's perfectly linear and responsive to variables on the macro front. One more thing, Joe, we'll get to your chart, I promise. What you just said, I could imagine somebody sitting here. Let's say this is the first podcast they're listening to that has to do with Bitcoin. Maybe they were interested in gold and they see these two things as very similar assets. So they hear you saying or denigrating gold as like that was a bad idea 10 years ago. But Bitcoin is somehow a better idea, even though these two assets are viewed very similarly. So how would you explain that to that person thinking like, why is Bitcoin the better idea at this point than gold was 10 years ago? And how can you be so sure of that? Very sure of it and very confident of it because Bitcoin is far more than the asset itself. Bitcoin is a network. It's a monetary network that will eventually supplant to the entire global financial system. And gold is not. Gold is a rock. Gold is an element on the periodic table. Gold is something that fails in the network that we need for 21st century commerce over the Internet. And for people to reduce and denigrate Bitcoin to digital gold, to me, Josh, that's offensive. Like I think like, OK, when I hear digital gold, that's what Bitcoin, I'm like, I want to sell my Bitcoin because there's people that do not understand what Bitcoin is. It is not a shiny yellow rock. That's not what it is. I it's think a very useful tool to help people, to introduce people to it, to help them understand what, at least at a very limited level, this is. I think that's a good introduction for people. And all I'm saying is I'm certainly not making that argument. I'm simply bringing that up to say if somebody is listening to this and they had that idea that gold was great and they maybe don't think so 12 years later and now they're hearing about Bitcoin, it sounds like a parallel idea in a lot of ways to a lot of people. That's the only reason I brought that up, because I think that can cause some confusion. I mean, I don't understand how a generation that grew up seeing the promise and innovation of the Internet would not just use the Internet. I mean, literally Andreas and Antonopoulos did the work for Bitcoiners, the Internet of money, like, what, is it seven years ago, six years ago? Got it behind me. That's like, that's literally what did it for me. So you're telling me, Josh, that talking to a regular person, talking to a regular person, you're going to say, hey, I know you don't own any of the shiny yellow rock, but you should buy it because it's now going to work in a digital era instead of saying this is the Internet for things of value. This is how we're going to communicate value among people. You don't think that that's more persuasive to the regular people, that this is how we will communicate and share our experience and share our time, show what is valuable in society. And by the way, I firmly believe it's not going to be solely about money. I think Bitcoin's network, Bitcoin's global network will serve other purposes that we haven't yet scratched the surface of. So to me, it's a minimalistic, overly simplistic parallel. I totally agree. But I'm just saying I think that to a lot of the uninitiated who don't understand network effects, who don't understand a whole lot of the terms you may be using there, there's a lot of people that still don't get that stuff. So I think that as an introduction. You've got to find a hook somewhere. You've got to find a hook somewhere and. What was the hook for the Internet? Go on chat rooms. I mean, nobody figured that out for 20 years. It took like it was like five years ago when people were really thinking that out. At least the general public. It's going to take 20 years for Bitcoin. It's going to take 30 years. I mean, it's even more complex. What he's saying is that calling Bitcoin digital gold is objectifying Bitcoin. There's so much more to it. It's like me saying your wife is hot and nothing else, Josh. And you're sitting there going, no, she's got so much to offer on the inside. She's such a great mother. And I go, no, she's just hot. That's what we do when we call Bitcoin digital gold. There's so much more depth there. I just like objectifying Bitcoin. What if I walked up to you and I said, oh, this is like the Internet's like a message board. That's what it is. It's a message board. I'm like, is that going to, what do I need that? And what's the point of that? I call people on the telephone. That's how I communicate with them. I give them a ring. I mean, I mean, it's such a reductionist way of talking about something that's profound. And I don't want to make it overly simplistic. I'm going to explain how this thing is going to change the world. And for you to understand how it's changing the world, you have to put in a little effort. I can't just say it's a yellow rock. And much the same. Okay. So back to your fair point about the Internet. What was the hook for the Internet? We really had nothing to latch onto. There was really no handle. The thing was just so useful and so effective. Is it the Today Show, the one where he's like, what's that at sign? What is an Internet? You know, explain to me. I think it was. Is it Katie Keurig and Kirk? I mean, that's kind of the same discussions we have about Bitcoin. And I'm sure you guys have had firehouse discussions about this. Like, explain to me what this is. Why don't we, well, you got to put in a little work. It's a little complicated, guys. I mean, I can tell you certain elements of it. But, you know, today I learned something new about Bitcoin I've never learned before, right? Like, and I mean, I've been involved in Bitcoin for years now. And that's just how it is. I mean, it's just the, you got to start from that premise. Okay, sorry, we got way off and I apologize. So, we started with the idea, so just to reset, we started, guys, with the idea of like, why isn't the economy responding? Why do you have these markets floating towards all time highs? And I don't know if you can see this, but I think this is a great illustration. So, what you can see here in the red line, and it's really stunning here. This is US non -financial corporate net interest costs, okay? Net interest costs. So, let's break down what that means. So, you're taking out financials, you're using corporate net interest costs, meaning the amount they have to pay to finance their debts, right? The amount they've taken out. So, let's just figure this out. What has happened in the past when the Fed, by the way, this black line, you see, this for the folks that are listening, I guess not, can't see the graphic. There's a black line on the bottom that says the Fed funds rate, and then there's the corporate net interest cost. And what you've seen during prior hiking cycles, I don't know if you can see my cursor here, but in, for example, you're looking at prior hiking cycles leading up to 2006, for example, is that when the Fed started to hike, you saw the corporate net interest cost, meaning the cost of holding that debt start to skyrocket. So, what does that do? What does that do? From a practical standpoint, guys, what this means is that corporations that took out money are responding very quickly, when they took out loans, responding really quickly to raises in interest rates. And you see this through several past cycles going back to, you know, the 90s, actually, you know, even into the 80s. And what you're seeing, why this time is actually different, is you see this rapid rise in the Fed funds rate here at the end, but you see net interest costs start to go down. So, why is that? The answer is because companies, which everybody is well, you know, they're constantly parroting, there's so much corporate debt, there's so much consumer debt, there's so much debt all over the place. Well, yes, that is true. However, many of those debts were taken out at very low interest rates. Companies were filled to the gills with cheap money in 2020, 2021, when the rates were near zero, and they were like, you know, an all -you -can -eat buffet, effectively. They took out as much as they can. And that's consumers too, right? You're talking about almost 70 % of all mortgages in existence right now are under 4%. So, the Fed can hike to 20%. But in the short run, when companies, until companies have to roll this paper and have to actually extend out the maturities, they're not affected. Their bottom lines aren't affected. Again, this is net interest costs. So, this directly eats into their bottom line. This is what's going to trigger unemployment to rise, all these issues that we talk about. But the problem that many macro analysts, and I don't pretend to be a macro analyst, but I'll just tell you from my perspective, I think many folks missed this, myself included, last year. How much cheap debt had been taken out at very low interest rates when the Fed was beginning this hiking cycle. And they equated it to prior hiking cycles, where even, you see even this little run -up right here, where you see very instantly corporates respond very quickly whenever there's a hike. So, this is the story right here. And by the way, this is not just a story in the corporate. I mean, I'll stop sharing this just so we can talk more. But this is not just about corporate. I'm going to pull up just the fiscal side here while you keep talking. This is not just corporates, right? This is also individuals. Unlike, you know, you guys remember the, I'm sure you've seen the big short, right? Everybody's seen the big short. Do you remember how many people took out adjustable rate mortgages, right? A lot of those consumers and investors and folks that were speculating in real estate, they learned their lesson. They actually put out a lot more, a lot fewer arms into the space right now. They got fixed low rates, 2%, right? And by the way, now that those rates are 2%, not only are they more profitable, but because inflation is the big boogeyman, they have a very easy justification to go to all their tenants on their speculative real estate properties and say, we're going to raise your rent. And then all those employees have a very easy basis to go to their employer and say, hey, I need more money because inflation is running at 8 % or 9%. And you don't have something systemically breaking among the American consumer. Now, where do you have pressure? You have pressure in the banking system, right? Because the banks who have to hold this paper, they're the ones who ultimately have to somehow deal with the fact that their paper that was worth 50 % more is now declined rapidly in value on a market to market basis because of the rapid hike in interest rates. However, what the Fed has said is like, look, we're going to keep a general policy with respect to interest rates. We're going to say we're going to pedal to the metal. No cuts for two years, what Powell just said. At the same time, the weakest players in the system who are holding money good treasuries, we are going to support them where necessary through surgical approaches like the BTFP. And by the way, just to conclude here, this is exactly what the Fed governors were saying last fall. If people were going to listen to it, there's a famous quote that I've posted about a billion times on Twitter where, you know, I think it's Christopher Waller says, look, there's this notion now that financial stability concerns will cause us to not want to hike further. And we disagree. We think there are specific targeted programs that can deal with any issues of financial stability and we can still keep pedal to the metal with respect to interest rates.
Authorities: Suspect fatally shot during rescue of migrants
"A suspect in the kidnapping of several migrant hostages in Houston has been shot and killed. Authorities say the incident began March 18th. Three migrants in a car were stopped in Waller county, Texas, and forced into another vehicle. It's believed their driver called 9-1-1, then came ransom demands and then video showing the hostages alive, but an elderly man was being beaten. The FBI was on the case and there were negotiations underway, says special agent James Smith on KTRK TV. One suspect was shot and killed. And a second suspect was taken into custody.

"And spending cuts aimed at plugging a 55 billion pound hole in the country's finances. The economic squeeze comes just after 24 hours, so I just 24 hours after data showed UK inflation topping 11%. In remarks released by the treasury ahead of today's budget, hunt is expected to say he will face into the storm and fixing problems depends on taking difficult decisions now. Over in the U.S., Federal Reserve officials are signaling they will be voting for 50 basis points rate rise next month, whilst also stressing the need to keep hiking into 2023. Speaking at an event in Phoenix, fed governor Christopher Waller said he is expected to sequence at least open to a sequence of half point hikes. Waller's comments come after last week's CPI data came in cool and expected, with prices rising 7.7 year on year in October. And bank customers are quids in on the pound, the share of people using the pound for global payments has jumped 2% since June, that's the highest been since Brexit, the pound is the world's third most popular payments currency behind the U.S. dollar and the Euro. Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake, powered by more than 2700 Jersey hours in more than a 120 countries. I'm James Walcott, this is Bloomberg. Stephen, this Panzer is really interesting because although the powers we can almost 12% against the dollar this year, this sudden spike happening around the time of the mini budget, is it arbitrage? Is that people using up any spare pounds? They might have. Is it people buying loads of pounds? Because they want to actually buy things because they're so cheap. Compared to the dollar, perhaps, but the percentages are really interesting here. So the proportion of global payment season Sterling at this surge point is just under 8%. The dollar is 42% of global transactions, the Euros 34%. The next after the panda is the yen, which comes in just under 3%. So it's still, you know, it's an interesting to see where the balance of currencies plays out. You miss that one of the most important ones. Whether or not it's going to overtake the dollar. They're far from that 2.1% in terms of globals, but these are of course swift transactions. So it's important to say that's the kind of U.S. led payment system. Other payment services are available at all. That's the thing. Okay, all right, thank you very much, James for that look at our top stories. Let's get back to our markets conversation. Just a few hours ago now until we find out the details of Chancellor Jeremy hunt plans for the UK economy. He faces a delicate balancing act of convincing markets of the credibility of the UK's fiscal path while trying not to worsen the looming recession. We've got Alta Qassam EMA's head of investment strategy and research at state street global advisers with us. Good morning to you. Good morning to have you in studio. What does Jeremy hunt need to do to convince markets today? Yeah, I mean, like you say, choose your favorite metaphor, he has to walk a tightrope or thread a needle, but he's got to somehow please the market and not upset the kind of Conservative Party kind of faithful too much. So what we think he's going to do is definitely go ahead with a kind of austerity type budget, but push a lot of the tax hikes and do more tax hikes than spending cuts, push them into 2024. So look, come out and say, look, I'm serious about this. But I'm going to have to wait a bit because the economy is too fragile to take it right now. Yeah, I think the interesting point in that is that it is a change from the 2010 budget and the austerity that came in under George Osmond after the global financial crisis, which was 80 20 spending cuts to tax increases. So you've got something uncomfortable for conservatives more tax rises, but is it really credible? Will the markets accept it as credible if you push out those tax rises to sort of towards the end of the 5 year period? Yeah, I think one thing that that might kind of make markets a bit more comfortable is a to see a number which is kind of in line with what markets have been expecting about 2% of GDP secondly to maybe start with a windfall tax on energy or increasing that, which is an easy way and certainly will please the voters as well. So I think there are ways that he can, in effect, make himself look serious, but you're right. The previous administration, whoever you want to blame, has definitely destroyed a lot of credibility. And so the markets are going to be very, very scrutinizing how this budget looks and making sure that it's going to be true. And I think the fact that they are actually having the OBR look at it will add to the credibility or at least it won't destroy the credibility like the previous administration did. What does this mean for guilt markets? We're looking at a glut of guilt coming on to the markets, you know, we'll be getting an update from the debt management office about how much exactly the UK government will need to borrow, where do you see the outlook then for guilt?

"Suing inflation. Richard bove financial stratus at Odin capital group says that policymakers and CEOs are becoming more pessimistic. The probability of a recession is very high. And then, of course, what they're going to say is that we can handle it. It doesn't matter what it is. But the key difference is that they are now believing that there's a good chance that a recession will occur. That is Richard bove Odin capital group's financial strategist speaking to Bloomberg. In the United States, Federal Reserve governor Christopher Waller says he doesn't think the American economy is guaranteed a recession. Governor Walla told Bloomberg's Michael McKee that some economists are underestimating the strong jobs market.

Okay, let's talk about some UK politics then tonight, the 5 remaining candidates to replace Boris Johnson will hold their first TV debate on channel four with Britain facing an economic crisis. This winter, more strikes over the summer and ongoing tensions in Ukraine, the potential future leaders of Britain are set to be heavily scrutinized on how they can improve on Johnson's record. But what do the public actually think about the candidates to be next prime minister joining us now is Kelly beaver, whose CEO of ipsos in the UK and Ireland, Kelly, good morning. Thank you so much for your time. So in lots of ways, this is rather a strange kind of competition on TV, isn't it? Because it's not the general public that are going to be voting on this, it's actually the members of the Conservative Party, they're voting on this individual becoming the leader and therefore the prime minister. Why are so many MPs so closely watching the polls then when it comes to these candidates? Because the public will eventually murder once this goes through the membership vote on a new prime minister is elected by the party. They have to be able to be appealing to the general public because we are going to lead into the next 18 months, really absolutely critical for both the delivery perspective for this government as they lead into the period for a general election. And they really need a candidate who does lots of different things. They need somebody who comes forward to be the new prime minister. Who has the leadership characteristics that the public say matter to them today and they are different from the characteristics that they wanted from a prime minister back in 2019 back then being good in a crisis also having a strong patriotic streak in big scene to be a strong leader with a top characteristics that really mattered in who they wanted leading the country. Today, other characteristics have risen, being really at one and understanding what it's like to be a sort of a normal average Britain in the country, really understanding normal life, but also trustworthiness and integrity have risen and obviously that is, I guess, a reaction to what perhaps was part of the previous prime minister's challenges. The other really key part is they're going to need somebody who can tackle some of those challenges you just mentioned. Public disruptions, strike action, a real sense amongst the public currently that the country is going in the wrong direction, heavy economic pessimism, the west we've seen in over 40 years on our tracking studies. And then, of course, the cost of living crisis linked to that and what it means for the average person on the street. So lots of policy, but also characteristics. And more recently, as you have seen in the papers this morning, the background, the personal background and story of those candidates will really matter when put to the public test. Normally, obviously, you focus on nationwide election results. Are you doing any work around this race? We're doing quite a bit around this contest and having a look at the different candidates, public awareness and familiarity who they think would make a good prime minister. What kind of characteristics they want in the leader and then more recently we put out a piece yesterday just testing the public on their views of whether the backgrounds of the candidates really matter and their personal history because you will see the front pages this morning are covering very heavily penny morden in particular because she was relatively unknown and I think that background will really start to matter as they get into that wider debates that we're going to see on the television right through until next Tuesday. I think neither will be quite a lot of coverage of it for the candidates. Just briefly in terms of the 5 candidates, then who has got most kind of household name recognition, I suppose, is it somebody like Liz trust who's had a lot of jobs in top government? So Rishi sunak actually which shouldn't be a surprise because he did have some of the most top jobs in central government as the Chancellor former Chancellor

And I'm Juliette sali in Singapore, so we are on track for a weekly gain on the regional benchmark index of about 1.6% Brian and certainly things looking pretty good today. So a good week this week at a bad week last week and had a really good week a 6% gainer the week before. It's been topsy turvy, but at least today it's looking pretty solid and will close out the week apparently pretty strong. It just seems like investors are setting aside some of the darker themes and embracing a little sunshine. Part of that is trying to look beyond the recession or maybe that there will be no recession that the fed might be able to pull off a soft landing. We heard comments from a couple of fed heavy weights, which will get to in a few moments. But that gave a little bit of a positive tone. We have the stimulus in China that is projected that could be being pulled forward from next year, and maybe President Biden will be looking at lowering U.S. tariffs. So not everybody is behind that. But that might also be a sort of step in the right direction. Maybe ease if you tensions between the U.S. and China as well. Well, here's what we're seeing. The nikkei is up 1%, the ASX 200 and Sydney has rallied 9 tenths of a percent. So far, what we've seen this morning is big gains in energy and materials, particularly there in Sydney. Consumer discretionary and tech in Tokyo as well as energy as a theme we expect to play out today. Energy rallied the most on Wall Street. We had the spider energy ETF up 3.6% and detected very well the NASDAQ with gains of 2.3%. And some earnings that also did not disappoint. So setting up is a pretty good Friday, Jules to you. Well, two of the fed's most hawkish policymakers Brian backing raising interest rates, another 75 basis points this month, both fed governor Christopher Waller and St. Louis fed president James bullard stressed the need for more restrictive policy. Speaking earlier, bullard stated that credible action is necessary. If we don't get the inflation under control, inflation expectations could become unmoored and if that happened, then you get this long and complicated tangle like we did in the 70s where you have high inflation rolling on for a decade and the real economy being quite volatile with lots of recessions. A lot added that while there are risks he believes the U.S. has a good chance of a soft landing. So it's interesting, isn't it, though, Juliet that the market even with those two heavyweights saying 75 basis points this month, the market still rallies. So it shows you that investors are looking out beyond. Well, we also got that China stimulus, so we're talking about it. China said to be considering a $220 billion stimulus package, the move would allow local governments to sell 1.5 trillion. You want a special bonds in this second half of this year and as mentioned, this would be pulled forward from next year's quota. It would be the first time for that. The debt would be used for infrastructure spending and would add to the original ¥1.1 trillion set aside for such projects. Commodities rallied following the news with copper extending gains as much as 3.6%, Chinese officials did not comment. Coming up to four and a half minutes pass the hour time for global news.

"waller" Discussed on Typology
"I would say things as a kid like. Hey dad i feel like the world is moving too fast or i had religions anxiety around school and sports parents were very attentive but ask me questions they would be with me. They would talk to me. They would make me feel safe but it was the eighties. It wasn't just kind of i. Think the natural thing to do at least not. You're down in dallas. Texas to to take me off to a service in so i struggled with these issues of depression anxiety. All the way Until my early thirties. When i began to have panic attacks just really really serious panic. Attacks finally said okay. Enough is enough. I need to avail myself distant. Treatment got into see. A psychiatrist began during the work of psychotherapy added in the mix of medication. And i had this moment Not immediately but a few months into it rows like oh my goodness. I actually don't have to live this way. I didn't know that the pain that i was experiencing these troubles. The bear was treatment. That could hell dissipate be symptoms in so i experienced sort of my own healing there. Well fast forward a few years. I get myself into a place where i'm working in the church pursuing another graduate degree and get myself just completely burned out and fail to continue to seek out the treatment that i need to keep myself in a healthy mental space and i get to the point where i began to use alcohol as my primary coping mechanism. Which leads to this moment. That i describe in the book or i go to church for a sunday evening service. I'm completely intoxicated. And it's the most embarrassing worst slash now looking back maybe best moment of my life because it was one of those moments like all right Something's really really out of whackier. And you need to step back and Seek a higher level of care. Which is what i did in the became sort of this great sprawling upward Richards language moment for me Where i really suffered some serious humiliation and some recognizing that. Look what i'm doing and what i'm jay seeing. What i'm pursuing is not working. And i've got a choice whether he either lean back into that and keep going or really spend some time figuring out who. I am what i wanna be about. Now i can get l. fake and so that was the coming from me. Which i you know jumped into my own healing But in between those two incidences of of of experiencing depression anxiety the first time and then having the big sort.
Australia's Been Caught With Its Pants Down
"Know i've got a new metric now for the covid pandemic yes. Let's hear it. What time of day is the battery on my phone. Run well given that. You're basically turn all dr sworn i feel like it could happen at six o'clock in the morning. There was a little bit later than that yesterday. It was eleven. Am flat anyway. Let's get on with a story. That's all your secret. Sauce is blowing up your fine. Well let's talk about what we do know so far about that. The continuing outbreak melbourne. We we've sort of got about fifteen cases in the questionaire at least is are the numbers that we were hearing yesterday of about. Four generations of the virus from the original source that we know came from the side of the person you hotel quarantine through to the more races that came to light yesterday. There's still lots and lots of people whose tests is still yet to be processed but so far there seems to be a single chain of transmission which is reassuring even if the numbers are pretty big raw. Yeah so if you just look at the pattern here you've got the man called the waller man just like some prehistoric story here but the woman who's who comes from safest area. He caught it in hotel. Quarantine is he in negative and came out positive an adjacent room to somebody who was positive. So that's pretty outrageous and shows you how vulnerable we are and just luke if everybody's feeling relaxed and comfortable but hotel quarantine just look at that. This is what a fault in hotel. Quarantine does it stops state and this is so significant and we still try and pretend hotel. Quarantine is simply fantastic. This is what happens. So then you've got a man. I think was sixty who is actually called case five. Of course on the order of cases he was discovered he in fact is the earliest case in this chain. But there's a gap is a gap between the wall man and the man who is case number five as the first case in this chain.

"waller" Discussed on WGR 550 Sports Radio
"Let's move forward. You're doing rookie that you like for dynasty formats very open. And the question here is to find you and I'm not talking about Trevor Laurence. Obviously, we all like Trevor Laurence, but somebody that's not super obvious. Yeah, I know. I mean, I could've gone with Trey Lance, but you know, because everyone knows that I am happy about that pick, but I went off the board a little bit with Michael Carter going to the Jets, and I think His chance to make an impact fairly quickly. It was kind of surprising because we don't think of the Jets running backs traditionally is being well, at least not of late. I should say is being that solid, but he can catch passes. He runs with power. He is somebody who has a chance to be on the field more than he's not because he couldn't pass protection as well. So I think you could make an impact fairly quickly. One of the criticisms been the Jets offensive line. They obviously have made some moves to try and sure that Oppa's well Ranks, I think was 29th in yards per carry before contact on. So the running backs not getting much of an opportunity, but I think was solid. They're some of the changes that they're making. I think that That it's also gonna be interesting to see since he brought Michael floor there how their offenses going toe look in terms of what the running backs are able to do so. Um, I'm watching Michael Carter. Yeah, that was a good A good value Pick. Yeah. And the Jets, of course, drafted two players named Michael Carter. One of them plays defense. One of the plays offense. You just lied about the offensive guy. All right. So, Stefan, you you went off the board for the Dynasty stuff. And then Matthew and I decided to go right down the middle with Daniel. So, Matthew tell us more about Trevor Laurence. Yeah. I mean, just again. Just sometimes we try to get too cute and overthink it. So listen, I went super obvious with Trevor Laurence. But the truth is, is that I mean, you know, there's a reason why trouble Lawrence has been called the You know the best prospect since Andrew Luck, Rightto come out and listen. I think you could make strong arguments for Jamaar Chase for Kyle pits. A surprise. He said. Trey Lance, I've seen a number of fantasy analysts that I respect say that Trey Land should be number one and dynasty formats This year I'm gonna go with I'm gonna go with Trevor Laurence, though Just because again many dynasty formats, you super flex, which, if you're unfamiliar, basically means you can play two quarterbacks and so Quarterbacks are generally devalued and fantasy, but not in super Flats and a dynasty. Look, quarterbacks have the longest shot five of, you know any position generally, you know, certainly, obviously, you know, Wide receivers are next and then you know, running backs tight ends, but You know, So for me, it's you know, for me, it's Lawrence. I think that he will. We've discussed this a lot field. I think he will run more than gets credit for then 17 rushing touchdowns at Clemson. I think they're going to give him every possible chance to succeed in Jacksonville. Already liked some of the weapons around him, You know, Lovestruck Lubis, ca Shonali DJ shark, obviously Marvin Jones, and so I'm I'm just excited about Trevor, Laurence and Dynasty. I mean, obviously, he's obviously just a star in every single way you write the longevity Certainly Bothwell for 10 or 15 or 18 or 20 Year career, because Tom Brady is showing us that apparently, some quarterbacks for at least one can play for 24 years. Daniel would be magnanimous. I'm gonna let you take the answer on Kyle picks the player that both you and I selected. Oh, you're so sweet Field for me. It's It's all about positional scarcity of the tight end position. Uh And this is a big step that stood out to me. The difference between tightened too. And tight and three last year was 102 fantasy points, which is just a massive drop off now, Obviously, George Kittle got hurt. But when you look at the top three from that tight end position it, Z Kelsey. It's Kittel, and it's Darren Waller. So the idea that you have a position where I could draft a tight end? Who's as young as he is with an established quarterback in Matt Ryan and other pieces on that offense, and Calvin Ridley and Julio Jones? For now, we'll see what happens with Julio the rest of this offseason. You know, he is in a position where he will not be a focal point. He shouldn't be seen the double teams. He's got a great offense around him. Are there Smith coming in? Like I said, you know, a veteran quarterback I love the idea of being able to lock up in Dynasty eight. Tight end position where finding a superstar is so much harder than a wide receiver or quarterback in these passing leagues. I just think finding a quarterback or wide receiver is a little bit easy. So give me that guy at a position wherever you've got Kelsey or a Kittle, you are feeling strong every week because you know you always have an advantage over the prisoner plain at that position. Yeah. I mean, it's the most elusive position in finishing fantasy football. I think a brisk everything you said. I agree with their Daniels. So continue to believe that Kyle picks is the guy in dynasty that has the most unique value relative to his position. Let's go to one more to find you here. Yeah, one more. One more Is which Rookie? Are you? Most excited about to draft 2020 season long weeks. Um, I don't have my notes. Okay, well, your answer was nausea. Harris was the same one you gave me and that you always had a reason He didn't make the note cut up. I love nausea here is because he can do everything right And and Pittsburgh loves their backs that are versatile and they're looking for someone who could stay on the field. And I think that was part of the challenge with James Connor and ultimately his struggles with staying healthy or an issue for him, So it's kind of like Now it's the next generation of running back. They want someone who could do it all and not get Harris should be able to do it all. There were some questions about his ankle coming out of Alabama. Whether he had a problem. They're not. I've been told his ankle structurally sound there. No major issues at all there. Every everything is full go, and he's expected to be 100% when the season opens, so We know it wasn't that what we always talked about. Fantasy is like opportunity and availability. So as of right now available and as of right now, certainly looks like he's got Tons of opportunity. Matthew, if you had to give nausea and outlook relative on like the skin scale of, say, pawnbrokers, probably Apex. Maybe Josh shake ups is somewhere in between, like where would you sort of rank Nagy's outlook amongst Guaranteed started for his team in rookie outlook for fantasy like is he? Is he gonna be a top 15 Picking your opinion? Top 22 top 30 how high he did not. So we just released a new episode of the fantasy show on ESPN Plus and Um, the, uh, when.
Bengal Tiger Spotted Roaming in Houston Neighborhood
"About the tiger? Oh, yeah, yeah. Yeah. Somebody sent me that video last night. I don't live out that way. We posted it to social media. You could find it on all of our pages. Twitter, Facebook big goal. Bengal Tiger was roaming the neighborhood on but pretty nice neighborhood fairly close to town. I mean, it's west of Houston. Out around Memorial and Highway six. If you're familiar with that area real close to a giant park named after George W. Bush, Yeah, care for that, anyway. A Bengal tiger was lounging and someone's front yard kind of prowling up and down the street. People were pretty surprised to see a tiger. Okay, So it sounds like some guy had the tiger living in his house. Yeah, and before he came out and realized the tiger was out of the house. His neighbor came out with a gun. Yeah. Waller County deputy who lives in the neighborhood pulled out his service weapon. Now the tiger doesn't see that as a command to stop. The tiger doesn't know you pulled a gun on it right? Exactly. Asses. The man the you know, deputy of the neighbor is pointing a gun at the Tiger. The Tiger's owner, We assume ran outside said Don't shoot, Don't shoot and then runs up to the tiger kisses. It kisses the tiger took him by a scholar and took him into his house. And then while people are out there with their cameras filming, he came back outside with the tiger loaded him up in his truck and then drove away before the police could get there.

BBC Three is Coming Back to TV
"Let's talk about tv and bbc. Three which will be returning to the fusty old fashioned airwaves. After an absence of nearly six years. It's going to be back on. Tv sets in january maggie Will you be watching things target demographic but will you be watching your the target demographic but i'm very piece it's coming back I think he shouldn't've gone away in the fest place. I also like the fact that it's also going to be a following on from cbc so the one of the aims of the bbc. One of the failures of the bbc has been fantastic children's programming. The seabees thought graduating through to see bbc. So we can think of horrible histories strict sonko great great shows but then they lost that advantage and i think now that they're going to take an hour of cbc and move into bbc straight. And i think this is actually a potentially good way of rebuilding interest because they can actually put forward some some grapes. Some great shows whether they'll be watched. I didn't know they can be caught up with but the thing is really spoiled for choice now and to actually just rope a group of a tv channel. Just seems to me to have been a very bad idea. But on the other hand what she see is that the regulators have been nagging away the producers because on the exec because that losing the younger views in but it's a very competitive market so the more outlets you have the best staff is. It's been obvious to real professionals in television including the control of bbc. Three that the decision five years ago it was wrong and so they're finally Reversing it may be too late. But i'm glad that june yes interesting. Jake look back actually or listened back. I should say to what our panelists said here on the media. Podcast when the move was announced that bbc's be bbc three would be moving online because we were on abbott van in two thousand fifteen Leon wilson said on the show to me. It's a huge mistake. It will probably be a qualified. Success will be one or two programs that pumps through online. But it'll be harder for us to be seen and for asthma and said this is nonsense. I can't believe this is happening. Television has an important canvas. That young people under served in time has proven right really. Hasn't it was always a mistake to put bbc three on mine. Can we just say that. Now i think the fact that the bbc's made this decision is a tacit acknowledgement that. It was a mistake. But i also don't think that it was a failure. Bbc three unshackled from the jill did reasonably. Well did very well. In fact some fantastic shows came through within online environment. I'm thinking that alexa flee back which has gone on to huge international success and won emmys and landed phoebe waller bridge a huge deal with amazon. And then you look at things like normal people which came last year plasma successful show Austria and beyond. I think ever Things like this country just quality quality programming now that that's not to say that those shows would not been commissioned if bbc. Three's on television. But i do think there was a creative freedom that came with being online and i hope that that remains that creative freedom continues and the bbc three doesn't have to spend money on shedule filling content like family. Guy like eastenders repeats because that you know that comes with a cost it still comes with. The cost is all repeats but they they still come with a cost shows. So why don't save the cash because all of those shows that jake just listed. Maggie had outings bbc one obesity too anyway. So they did get linear outing. And arguably would have been commissioned even bbc three haven't been an existed somewhere else on the bbc. I'm sure of course feedback with a bit of. The thing is really that that they had a late slot. Which is off to a the news helpless ten which is fine. I suppose but if a peanut the younger teenage area maybe it's better to be a bit more funky roundabout survey to talk of people who've had softened the home what they're looking for some entertainment secondly even if this is a qualified success. It's not you're not saying that. The programming copy shot on another channel. What you'll saying is going to premiere on bbc. Three and the seats will have its own form of promotions. General Ambience and i think that that shows the bbc has about the singer. Bob this past yet really opinion is that we really do well. What what is really happened is despite all channels. Having a terrible television broncos mutawa time in order to make programs have if you had to tear up hills the shadows. I didn't know how they will manage to keep going. It's been a very very very difficult. But they have performed. I think really well. And one of the aspects of it is the the Regulations and the quotas and on the agreements that they strike can have a run the channels what we put in the amount of circle public service will costing lawyers moods of of quotas and measurements to us forty two inches ready test channel phone over a hundred for the for the. They been relaxed because they had to. They had to be what they could be given the circumstances and i think they've done brilliantly and so i do think that another kind of channel to pay rounded up trusting. The bulk custos is at this point. Really good thing. I think that if you look at the energy is gone into some of the changes in just the the kind of logos and all the rest of that using the gen will the bits between the programs. they advertise that pregnancy will be very jazzy. I'm very keen an above all to. They've they've understood what the nation wants so we want more outdoor kind of things. We've had the the devon's on the komo's in the countryside programming that you could possibly drum up and it's been like that too with children Having the the bbc by sesame the government didn't say to bbc in in february across Help children home educate. They just did the juicy and they came up by april with with a complete scheme and then they re extended it. They used radio for Things so i think. Now it's the bbc is about to be besieged on despite order the gloom about since fees advertising and blah blah blah off broke custos. Domestic focuses are ashamed themselves to be foot of grits. And and. I'm beijing
