Human Intelligence. Simplifying Complex Problems with Cheryl Mobley of Recalibrate.
"Hello what does it take to become a better problem. solver in an increasingly more complex business world why is it important for the challenges we face today as well as for the opportunities sees will come across in the future. How do we fight the urge to jump in quickly to face a problem when we should in fact be stepping back? And taking the time to solve it creatively creatively. And how could that phone in your pocket help you do it from a noisy conference room in the CPA and Seema head office in London. I'm Kyle Hannan and this is the Gobi on disruption podcast this week. We're we're talking to Cheryl. CEO of recalibrate works with companies to support sustainable growth. And we're going to talk about. Simplify Complex is problems. And this is part of our human intelligence work here at the EPA. And Seema you can find more content by visiting our website at beyond disruption dot Com and searching for human intelligence or you can follow the links in our show notes. If you've not heard of show mobile before let's get you up to speed. And she's based in Texas. She has a twenty year track record of helping executives solve problems.

So thank you so much for talking to a state where you joining us from I. I am actually falling for other chilly. Dallas Fort Worth area. Well here in London. I'm doing what many people are doing as well and fighting a cold which is a problem. I don't think creativity not can help with. I think what I need something hot in the cup. So excuse me if I do sound a little too close to a sneeze every now and then but it's a common story as we get into January. Yeah we're doing that. At the beginning of twenty twenty so here in London the Northern Hemisphere. It is usually much cold strangely. Mild at the moment maybe it is climate change. Yeah which does remind me. The devas climate conferences on in Europe at the moment according to radio reports there it is apparently much colder than it is here in London. I'm going to be in New York City for an event in about a week. I'm hoping I've got a little brief period. Dry would be quite plus. Bring your boots and an umbrella. Oh I think is also a good option especially here in the UK one so those are some easy problems to solve with the right gear but his life and our jobs become complex problems. We're going getting to solve become more complex as well. Now I have to say I'm not a parent. You have friends. Who are? They often talk about parenting little kids and it does definitely bring them great joy but at the same time I can see it takes a lot of work and little kids mean little problems. Big Kids mean problems and as we become a big global society now means as a bigger big global society. We got big global problems talking about. I was just mentioning the US forum. But there's another global form we need to look at and that is the W. E. The F. The World Economic Forum. They've identified complex problem solving as a key skill for the future workplace and the future workplace. We're talking about is right around the corner in in fact is probably here already already into twenty twenty and this is definitely skill we need to be working on to enhance and to develop presented at the AICPA and Seema's engaged conference a couple of years ago. I think that was June twenty eighteen. That's when we launched this podcast and at the conference you shared your insights on complex flex problem solving so. Let's start with the big question. How do we get better at it? Had Magic Arrieta right and I'd be incredibly popular and ensuring a lot of it is really around it over used. This word may be your minds up and that's how you approach so if you have the luxury of being alive then you will have problem and how you feel about them is going to really determine how successfully you manage the move through them kind of bend to your will benefit from them. I know when when we were first talking about doing this presentation that they ICPA and yelling pulled together this information from the world the comment forum and you talk about complex problem solving being something you required. It was really intriguing when I look at the top ten to me. Five of the others are really supportive of that critical thinking if he don't think critically if you don't really question your assumptions you're not going to be able to solve Aubrey problems while because the place that you're starting from this going to serve you. Another one was creativity which remains a huge point of passion. How do we use creativity to cause ought to be more curious right into caucus will be more innovative in our solutions? Another saying they said was really important that the motion. Helen also really huge in terms of how you examined the world around doing a minute judgment and decision making. That's certainly a vital. Some piece of flexibility was allowed. And I really intriguing tweeting that out of ten really six really all around. How do you think about what you do and how does it either serve you got in your way and so for me? It's having having an approach. It's realizing how important those things are. And one of the things that we shared was gonNA forecourt practices that I together and kind of in my own problem solving model and we can certainly talk about that but just to spend a little quick highlight. I thought it was interesting because we had the luxury thing. We'll be some allow people to vote route and so the way we started that conversation was really what the context in which a lot of your listeners were dealing with their own problems right because all of us are different and certainly in the in the accounting and finance field. You have certain challenges that you have to work with. And that's just your framework you know it is what it is and so the top three the things that you're poke fun. Challenges with forty two percent of them said people in performance if she were a major a major big deal for them thirty five percent with lack lack of chase stock ownership which is a subset of your people. It's not necessarily performance issue but if your people aren't engaged trying to help you solve your problem the world to your point earlier it's way too complex. A single person isn't usually gonNA come up with an idea food anymore. There's just too many moving parts and different perspective on twenty three percent percents Challenges Setting and implementing strategy and again not latching commuter. Really being able to say what's important. What are we trying to move forward with because you can't asset strategy if you don't really know where you're trying to up and one of the things? We talked a lot about that I know we. We have a lot of questions. were in that fashion together. Those really about what's what's noise right for you. And how do you say no a lot of your folks really struggled with. How do I say no you know not feeling good about it? And so that that they're really big part of our conversation. The questions that came up after okay so I have to ask you. What is the secret sauce? What can you tell us about your approach to problem solving living so my approach to problem solving is for some people it feels like I'm slowing down to speed up and so one of the first things that I do is I really look at my assumptions because we have them which is fine? We have to if you come up to me in the hallway and say hi Cheryl. I shouldn't have meltdown trying to figure out what you meant. I should just say hi back when we get into things more complex though the problem becomes we don't realize how many assumptions were running with May in. So if you if you take take time to just stop take ause take breath ago. What kind of assumptions making? What do I really know to be true? Not what I think about what might be driving it. But what do I really not true. and honestly that's usually only about fifteen or twenty percent at the most of what you've been running with mentally you know to be true. The rescue filled Linden stories. You made assumptions about what it means whether People Mansa really the first thing for the model that I follow is really examiner assumptions. Because as soon as you start moving from a place of assumptions anything you come up with is not going to be so. That's the first piece. The second set kind of in the problem. So model news is is really identify. The outcome you want about twenty percents of they really struggled there. So if you don't know what success looks like again you're you're you're bumping up against install wall that's GonNa make things even harder if you don't know what you're trying to end up with you can't solve for it and so really making sure. What is the outcome you want with? A lot of Mizzou is in human nature. And it Kinda gets this is if I let's say you and I were just we were at dinner. We were just talking on the. Hey what's going on but you you know what are the things that are going on to get them like you probably just launch ago. You could give me so many things that you just. You're not happy with the way they're going but I said well what what do you want. It would stop you just like it would stop me so I'm not saying we need better than anybody else. There's just a tendency that we have to believe battle to shift from what I don't want to what I do want again. It's it sounds simplistic but it is a huge shift and then radius all around asking asking a lot of questions of yourself. Other people of checking if your assumptions are accurate. One of my favorite questions designed will went on working with people as I will ask Sam. What didn't I ask you that? I didn't ask you that. I didn't know enough to ask and usually that stops people and they kind of a well. That's really great question action over. This would have been helpful so that is a fantastic question to put in. Your toolbox is to ask that question and then really the next step is do something take action. We've all been around people where you just swirling you swirl and swirl in wait for the hundred percent solution with all the facts to be known to your point earlier the world is moving so fast what may have been a fact at ten twelve in the morning may not be affected more by ten fifty. You really have to go okay at here GonNa make a decision GONNA take action. I'm willing to look and see what comes of my choices freight of the decisions I made and then of course correct I need. It's like an experiment isn't it. You've you've got a good dose of curiosity you're asking these questions and then you willing to take chance and just try some solutions absolutely experimentation that. That's a beautiful word. I use it a lot myself with people. It's it's a great word for a lot of reasons. When we think of experimentation we expect even on a scientific model novel that we're going to learn something but we don't always expect that what we're experimenting with or what we thought would happen is what's going to happen in that mindset that it says I am willing to learn something not that everything's GonNa be exactly the way I want and it was really again might ask your folks one of the things that causes them to get stuck? Fear of failure almost forty percent of that was the number one reason that your folks that they kind of got stuck and problems on. You've beat me to it. That was actually. He can be my next question I might as well ask. What are some of the ways that people get stuck in problem solving based on what you've said it sounds like fear is one of the big ones right and that is number one and it comes down to we all WanNa do things? Well we want to perform well we WANNA be successful. Having living net experimentation mindset. Helps you refrain. What success is lighter example with my When I was a hustle President I would be working my team? I'm like okay. Let's try and let's try and solve that problem. Go figure play with something. Come up with something you think will work. Let's test it. Somebody came back from innocent and it didn't work and I said yes it yet eh. Because now we know that that's not GonNa get us all we need to go to move onto the next thing so we learn something so it's a huge ship. So fear of failure was the number one online pretty close behind thirty two percent of your folks number two reason was they just don't see options a lot of that has to do with. We're in again. We talked about this with your folks made by training. If you're an accountant than you're especially if you're a CPA doing taxes. You have one input in one acceptable blowout but you don't have the latitude to be creative and be flexible. So when you have that mindset that says one right answer you have to kind of come back and pull back from that back to the earlier comment about examining functions and really recognized. There is more than one answer. There just is that jumping to this is the only answer. This is the only thing being too quick off the draw to try and sell it really quick which which may not be helpful so it's one of those pieces that really is not seeing options and the first thing really is to make yourself yes. There are more options than when when I presented to you to your audience. One of the things I showed them was three very different pictures of exact same type of lower that look me the meeting different and like I said to them at the time. I said my reasoning for showing you. This isn't show you. Hey these are some photographs I took. It's just a show for you due to really trigger how to think about what would be my default way to take an image of that lower for most of us it straight down looking down on up from heights down because that's how we see the world. It really takes a lot of becker. To how many other ways can I take a picture of this thing. And that's the same way you want to approach a problem. She went to think. How many other ways can I approach this that we all have a default and when your default his work in the past I will be more likely to just assume that that default is what we need to do as the world is changing so quickly? Generally that same solution isn't gonNA work any. It's really back to again. Slowing down to speed up to go and look in stand came Let me look around my world here and see how many other ways ways that I could do this and look at this differently. I will say to people as a way to play with this in their own life. We all. I don't know that there's anybody who's GONNA listen to. This doesn't have a cellphone. The cell phone has got a camera. I mean that's just a pretty safe ascension so an assignment people can do on their own is to take an object unit does not matter what the object is as long as it has listen different sides in perspective and challenged themselves taking five different pictures of that one thing that look really different right right so yes you can look at it from the top. Maybe you get down below it. Maybe you get on the same level of it maybe you change your positioning in your shooting up at whatever it is without moving it. How can you get really different images of this thing? It's a great way to start to get your mind working around. Wow well there is more than one way you know and my default is not the best so the the fear of failure was number one where people get stuck not seeing options was number two. The next one that came in pretty close talked about a little bit already has trouble articulating. What success looks back again? If you don't know what you're shooting for you may hit it beautifully the end it may be the most graceful elegant solution Eber. But if you don't know what success looks like you're just GonNa blow right past it or you're GonNa Soro because of your fear you're a failure and not ever do anything which is something a lot of this due to right we just come on just waiting for one more piece of information right. We're waiting for. And then they weigh in Deck Melena. They look up and High Co.. It's been a year and I haven't solved this problem. That that drains a lot of us the next one coming after pretty closely after that twenty six percent of your folks said they don't ask questions and that circles right back to the asking assumptions assumptions. Because if you're assuming that you know everything you need to know why would you bother to waste your time asking questions. So they really they kind of feed off each other so those were the top four another one. That's a big deal. It didn't come in quite aside. Came in at nineteen percent was the tendency to drift toward conformity in groups and when I asked her folks were problem solving. How many were working on issues by themselves versus part of a team? Sixty eight percent of them said part of a team so when you think about what we talked about already think about making assumptions and being able to identify the outcome. You want taking action if one individual human has trouble with that when you add other people to the mix that lack of clarity can be fatal to moving forward either at all or with a good solution and so I really gave you folks credit that they recognized that they do tend to drift toward conformity. Whether it's power right if if I'm sitting with my team and I say something they more likely say oh. Yeah sure whatever you say or do you have people. That just aren't comfortable seeking up or feels like it might be conflict if they have a different perspective and so your leaders role here is to make sure that the culture you created in relationships you have all the the time lead for we value. Everyone's opinion and perspective and we want to hear the dissenting voice. We must hear the dissenting voice. So that's an ongoing action that your leaders can absolutely take that will serve them back as well with getting people people more engaged to people have a stake in involved in and helped create it. They will be way more engaged than if it comes down from on high. We'll do this anymore like so it has the double layer to approaching play. We hear a lot about creating psychological safety how important that is is to fostering creativity innovation here at the EPA at CPS. Sima as we move into the New Year twenty twenty. We're talking a lot about how we have to reimagined ourselves as professionals companies and as still very important crucial elements in a fast changing business environment. So from what you're saying it sounds like that's quite important when it comes to complex problem solving as well and transparency and openness. We know that's important. It's often a good thing to rock the boat in the right way. Because you're doing that because you want to solve problems you want to inspire innovation but the thing is you need the right environment. You need to feel supported when you're doing so which I think brings us back to your point at that psychological safety that you were talking about is so important so as I understand it. It's important because that helps you. Be The the voice that might have a difference but still very important valid opinion. Absolutely because everybody's expected as possible and the fact that it's different is beautiful Info because it means that you see it differently that means that we will have a better more complete picture as a starting place that will allow us to come up with and creates solutions. They're really going to serve okay so for leaders who want to foster this culture of problem solving and really support that teams are there any pitfalls that these these leaders should be mindful of you know I think in in light of this this particular con- conversation I think coming back to what we've already seen in terms of people people not being engaged. Is that as a huge cultural question. That will underpin everything you do and how it gets done at how engaged your folks are and then of of course spillover into problem solving giving people a sense again of there's nothing wrong for example with saying. Hey let's say you and I are working together and and you're the leader. There's nothing wrong with you saying to me and the rest of the team. Here's our outcome. Here's where we need to end up doc here in the three or four sayings. This solution needs to generate in created. Make true now. I want all of Y'all to go off and with with your varying perspectives. Spend some time thinking over will where we are now where we need to be. What are some options to get us there and then I make the ultimate decision? It's not a thing wrong with that. As long as you're clear right as long as you let everybody know ahead of time that they're going to be working but the ultimate decision rests with you is it's also equally viable to say okay. I want y'all to come up with this and then we group GonNa make this decision as to how we're going to move forward. There's not a right or wrong again. It comes back to the clarity and having a relationship with your team. That foster sat back to use your word about having people feel safe having a be engaged aged and you need to live every day at all the time you value different perspectives. You also need to recognize that hustling for a quick answer. An absent emergency. I mean there are certainly times when you need a quick answer. I happened links that I live outside of Fort Worth us and our neighbor had bressler yesterday and we had three different fire departments respond and it could have been really really really bad in so it's a lot and what do you need to respond to you. What's your current environment in that are on? I don't want somebody to be charged. I don't want them to say the time to talk about this. I wanted to say this is what we're doing. So do you have the recognition when it's okay and save and a good idea to say let's hand this off to the team versus. When do I have to make the decision and I need to make? It would be a lot easier. We could say here. Follow rule one to ten. Don't say don't worry about context in life will be awesome world we limit anymore so AH judgment golfers. But it's an ongoing project really a to have people engaged and to be really clear as the leader is to what you're looking for and how you want people to work with you on. Let's move out to the C.. Suite for a moment because we've talked about leaders a little bit so let's look the individuals themselves. What are some things that I can do myself to foster my own ability to look at things differently and come up with those more unique solutions and that? That's a fantastic question. Because that's what we always want to get to write. What can I do? What can I do differently as a result of this than I know one of the things that was and is a a huge issue for everyone is really all the noise in our life and I asked kind some questions around? What were the biggest areas of noise because we all know when we are feeling overwhelmed or retired or were safe? Or there's just too many demands to deadlines this is not a good time to be created. It's just not just like we all know. There are certain times to tackle certain projects in your smart certain times not to be still spend more undoing. Rework answer really identifying what your noise is for. You is a huge first. Step that you have to take him. I wish I could say would take it once and be done but again with the pace of our life. That's not reality. You really need to make sure that you are checking your own bandwidths and making sure that you have what you need kind of a mental capacity standpoint and mental energy to tackle the problem you need to tackle because you may be you wiser to either hand it to somebody else or let it sit for a little bit of Kim in and then Kinda take care of yourself. What do I need to do to create the mental space and so when we talked about what some of the things are that the noise that prevent that mental states ability to be created almost coming in is tied? We're just as flat out daily to pay supplied the constant influx Alexa of information or information overload and cynical clutter worker home. Those things all came in pretty much tied for the people that you know that we were chatting adding with that really annoys for them. And if you don't make the decision to manage that noise you're always going to be sub optimal in what you're able to think about a decide just because you're just Chuma you have to be able to make that space for some people certainly been tons of research about you know meditation annotation whether it's just three or four or five minutes declare your brain whether it's getting up and going for a walk one of the techniques that I heard that I thought it was just wonderful a shard. It was just when you're working on a project. trion chunk it into you know no more than two hours every hour get up and move and in between projects take a five minute break to close mentally what you've just been working on and then to go okay. What do I need to get done with this next project? And what do I need to achieve so that you give yourself mental space because most of us don't unfortunately more stress fear in the more Russia you. They are the less likely we are to take that step back so that is a that is a huge piece and again really taking the time and the discipline to go. What do I want to identify via the outcome that you're looking for and for some of us it's easier to rattle off what we don't want and then go okay? That's a don't want now is what I do want the opposite or is it something different. So there's nothing wrong with just Kinda blurting out writing down all the things you want but don't stop there you know. Take that insight. Take that information go. Kay for example. I may not want to walk twenty miles today. Will there is a whole host of options that are the opposite will quote of not walking twenty months but it could be on a bike. You could be wanNA walk eighteen miles. It could be. I WANNA run. Could be able take US Olympic a car. It's it's really around taking. If your mind is hung up on your dumps. Really be intentional. But what do you want and the other piece I talked about getting some lucks role together with Mrs Really Apropos. We're talking we could Thanksgiving is be grateful for your problems and I could feel the shift in a room and people were like excuse me but what my comment was absolutely still one hundred percent with us if you have new problems to solve. Then that means you've solved the old ones and that you're growing you're developing the band place Is when you're still like a Gerbil on a wheel solving the same problem over and over and over again because that really it's an add a huge mindshift. That testified that new problems. This is awesome because it needs. I'm growing developing and I say this to my clients all the time in the first time I say to excuse me really and then after a while I get got it now. The fact that I've got problems to solve means that I'm focusing on different things and then back to your word that you used earlier. As part of the model he uses relief. Be Willing to experiment but also know where you can. You can't experiments. There are certain things certainly in tax law. You can't experience. There are a lot of things you can do about how you get the work done. It's unfortunate than when we are overwhelmed. We don't see options. No on the on. Anyone can do it. No it must be done this way. No must be by now. There aren't as many hardened best headlines as we act like there are again for your folks taxis that's not true consistently that extensions gals I get that but that may not be somebody's choice but we we put so much pressure on ourselves by treating a deadline that may not even be real real as a fact and then we rush and then we feel over well then we don't feel good about the decision we came up with so I mean I would love to say that it's it's older Imagine fairy does so by twenty nine ninety nine by his on you in life is good. It's really around the discipline of how you were going to sink going forward art and what you're going to allow in your life. I know it really resonated a lot when we talked about the petty. You say no if people said well how do I say now and Dan. I gave them so much credit. Because somewhere like it's both personal and work we have this concept that we are. This could have split body somewhere. You know it's like but it's not if you dot com in rested from home or you've got stuff owner home or your drain that is going to spill over your. It just is and so so. It's really around knowing what you need and how you need to do and I think the fact that's about thirty percent of the people said clutter was a problem just as they're running so fast. They're not doing what they need to do to deal with that. Clutter to remove that pressure so just stays missed as nets days so being able to save now when someone asks you to do you. Something is for a lot of people terrifying and there are ways to say at that are like no how could you dare versus. You know. I'm really sorry. It'd be lovely if I could help you but right now on the bamboo and I know doing a really exceptional job as important. Somebody Says No. You must do this then. A really awesome responses okay. I didn't know that's the new priority desperately shifted importance. What do you want me to stop doing? So I can get the attention desserts. I heard this on a another podcast recently. That when you say yes to one thing you're in fact saying no to something else that's quite a shift in mindsets. It's we'll be talking a little bit more about that in a minute. Alters we continue our conversation with recalibrate. Chill mobely you're listening to the go beyond disruption disruption podcast. You can find out more about us and our work at go beyond disruption dot com. Remember to go through our archives. We've got almost one hundred episodes episodes we bring every week and relocates the ways. That technology is disrupting the way we work. As well as the way that we as humans can respond respond innovatively and imaginatively using our intelligence to turn the challenges into opportunities. You can find out more about that as I said that go beyond disruption dot com look at the archived episodes and of course look at the show notes to you'll see links to everything we've talked about there as well. We talked Camogli about creative problem solving and we were talking about the shift in mindset that we may say yes to one thing. We're in fact saying no to something else and I think chill. It really makes us take a second look at what we want to say. Yes to because no matter how much more we might want to. We really can't say yes to everything. That is a beautiful refrain. And it's absolutely true because you are either running your own life on your own priorities or you're allowing other people will to suck you into their priors because we're all finite resources executive you make a choice for something whether you think about it that way or not in a moment. You're making a choice not to do something else. Because he'd come and you clearly need that space both the physical space on the mental space to effectively solve problems as lilly. That's it and there's always some kind of busy work. I suppose we could be doing that. We could be practicing out innovative thinking and creative problem solving muscles instead. I don't think I'm particularly good problem solver because I tend to do the kind of guy thing that the bloke thing I jumped straight to what I think the obvious practical solution might be instead of trying to be more curious stories and maybe backing off a bit more before I come up with that kind of I can fix this response that I think a lot of chaps almost always default to I think a lot of it from what you're saying is having that curiosity and then using that to give things more space and to take more time to step backup it's creatively find solutions from from a bit mm over a distance because we bought we've all looked back and redone nate perfect sense at the time. And you're like what was hyphen game by you. But there have been days. Were unlike you know I should filed today. Filing is the limit of mine mental value today. And I shouldn't be slopping things that are complex when I'm feeling like that it just shouldn't need to own that and respect that in realize I'm I'm not going to get a good outcome. I'm going to spend more time reworking nece than if I just let it sit for a moment then. There are other days like on my way I got this. This is so much fun and again. Let's come to us and so I have learned the hard way. Unfortunately if I push past that. No you shouldn't do that today and I do it anyway. I'm going to spend spend more time doing and probably make my life a whole lot harder because I don't know about you but unwinding something US It up is a whole lot more work than and if I just approach it cleanly and clearly the precisely Yep I actually think you've wrapped up nicely so let's go back to that phone camera. I was talking about earlier which I think makes us a great place to end. We'll do that with a challenge to our listeners. And that challenges to Grad their phones and go out to explore to look at things from different tangle take photographs in unusual ways that would be lovely and if they ever get posted anywhere. I would love to see them. Because it's great to see what other people say see things from different perspectives. And and in that way you could stop excising your creativity in new ways and also have fun because problem solving doesn't always have to be a heavy thing. Oh absolutely the agree handling things differently and learning from you and that you could kind of tease out. What it is that you do differently? It is for me as a huge passion. Because we're we are training in curiosity and of all of us and it's it's not knowing I mean you look at people that have gone whether they're engineers or it's nursing whatever and they do assessments pre and post education. They are losing critical thinking skills. Because you look at our general can of Lower Level Education Asia and we are teaching people to regurgitate. We're not teaching them to think we're discouraging from thanking because doe cut into the teacher with an answer that's different than the right answer and it's kind of an old really slow process that teaches us other is only one right answer and Oh is that answer and so it kind of squashes that creativity so for me. A huge point of passion is. How do we bring that back? Which is why I like that kind of the phone exercise with your camera? I talked about because just realizing there are other ways if you choose to kind of get a except that wedge into the way you view the world you can kind of crack it open go.

No we are doing the man. The myth the legend a true folk. I legend I guess you'd call this guy the Colorado Cannibal Aka Alfred Packer. Anybody who's been to the state of Colorado where I grew up. Nah You know this my house. Yeah this this literally happened in my backyard. This guy is a legend throughout the state. No matter what it was you know no matter what he did. This guy is a is his infant. He's everywhere yeah he's everywhere in Conroy. All the merchandise allow you know. He's in stores. They've got Alva- package jackets. Yeah really even got Alfred Packer. Knives and forks. Wow that is great. That's all your human flesh eating needs. That's right but before we get into our episode today. Let's go to the Weird News Day which we brought to you by Chris. Main okay so the weird news of the day is coming from New York Post Lord It's actually something that happened or it was reported on just two day. January twenty four th twenty twenty was bigfoot just spied roaming the mountains of Washington state. I've heard that bigfoot sasquatch or Yeti call what you will but most agree the furry cold weather giant is just folklore unless you're the Washington State Department of Transportation on Wednesday. The state agency shared images from traffic cameras showing snowy landscape alongside state route twenty in ferry county upon closer inspection the WS dot points out. There appears to be a dark bipedal figure in the distance sasquatch spotted the W. S. dot proclaimed on twitter quote. I'm not superstitious. Just a little dishes. Have you noticed something? Strange on our Sherman. Pass slash. Sr Twenty Webcam. Before if you look closely by the tree on the left there looks to be something might be sasquatch. We will leave that up to you and quote now. I know why South for was actually heard this on ground zero last night did you. Yes because they were talking about big foot's last night and the legend the May the legends. The miss the and they were actually discussing quite a few different I guess you'd call it theories as to his existence in what he really is like mayor of some sort or they can walk on back feed or stuff like that. There's all kinds of things. There's all kinds of theories with what bigfoot might or might not be nobody. What's funny is that it's all. It's all theories on a creature on bigfoot but they range from the supernatural to the natural to the extra dimensional but no none of those fields like each other. That is true Mike. The supernatural don't get along with the natural natural. Don't get along with the extra dimensional version dog along with the the idea that they're they're aliens or workers of alien beans all the same creature different theories. Yup they do not get along with each other. Yeah and according to one of the descriptions a one of the stories when we guys was talking about how he approached this thing look dislike dude sitting there yeah and he said turn around and looked at him and it had very flat faces at it. Looked like somebody whacked it in the face with a shovel right. There's a nose was mashed down and stuff like this And I was thinking in my you know. I was thinking immediately ranting. That's the first thing I said. No they described bigfoot in many forms. But I'm almost always some kind of ape like creature. Yeah always Oh yeah. That's how he described him. He didn't actually have a protruding face. He had a flat phase with a weird flat nose and yeah he just described him really strange. Continue The story. So the continuous story continues. So the story continues the farfetched. Tweet attracted social media's finest pseudo-scientists who were quick to dismissed. The claims as many as many noted that the figures seemed more like a man wearing a dark. Houdini backpack quote. Looks like a guy in all black sweats with Hoodie in backpack quote. Said one skeptic. I'm convinced now gray. Another person assumed a lot about the local governments photoshop skills. They wrote quote. Why is there no snow on the all black squad quote sasquatch at least some sprinkles a at least sprinkle some fake snow on his Blackford next time in quote F then the Twitter Account? I Know Quality.

Sherman Pass you the day and now he is in the wildlife over crossing on I ninety just east of Snoqualmie Pass Hashtag. Do you believe quote unquote. They tweeted There's a there's a video tach the story of I think it's pretty fake looking big focus in the field. Oh Jeez assuming even more Washington government agencies joining on the forest the twitter for Swat southwest region tweeted a gift of Fox. Mulder David Duchovny of X. Files saying I want to believe then. Washington Secretary of State added some historical context to the legend. The creature is so tied with the region that Governor Dan Evans proclaimed quote the Great Sasquatch in quote to be the official state monster in nineteen. Seventy the official state monsters state monster. Well I mean he's he's infamous in the Pacific northwest his playground that that's his dumping grounds for sure. He's been spotted all over but that is his main hood. Oh Yeah you listen. Beast has frequently been associated with mountain ranges of those Pacific northwest though sightings have been reported across the globe in Georgia. There's an entire museum dedicated to the half man half ape which may have indeed existed some two hundred million years ago according to a two thousand nineteen study published in the Journal Nature. Two hundred million German years ago pre dinosaur no dinosaurs. I think the next million years ago but yeah I go after dinosaurs. Two hundred million now two million. Oh you said to me that yet. Two million okay. Edit that sorry I thought you said two hundred no I'm pretty sure I didn't send me staining joker not one local was not at all amused to see how their tax dollars are being spent quote. Ws Dot. We really painting a waste time on twitter and quote the complained. And that's the story fantastic. Yeah so that's great. Because that's like yesterday forthright today. Twenty four yeah and I heard that on the show. It's not. Yeah so there's probably a big foot being spotted on Kim. Probably not we don't know but Yeah so you know. I usually wouldn't be asleep at that time and I'm not listening for commercial play and all this stuff sells all right and with that. Let's go and get to the story of the day. James Take it away now. The reason we swap places this week like I said Colorado is near and dear to my heart. I grew up here. I was born here in. Houston I was raised up there so when we when we came around to Colorado said on this one. I'm sorry I'm Michael Jackson. Ut Tokyo I'm driving miss do it? I'm driving this bus. Our right title this article is Alfred Packer. In the remains of his victims in the winter of eighteen seventy four. Alfred Packer was hired to lead a group of prospectors through the San Juan Mountains from the winter camp site of Chief. Your Ray located near the Present Day Delta Colorado which is a pit. I'm sorry it is if anybody from Colorado my friends and listening I'm sorry but Delta slacks. I used to hate to play football there. This turned out to be a particularly harsh winter in the lake. Fork drainage area deep snowdrifts and Subzero temperatures slowed. The party supplies soon ran out while game was non existent according to Alfred Packer and there were no fish to be found in the frozen over streams and lakes which was telling Chris earlier as bullshit. Sorry ice fishing is very good in Colorado. So this this fools lamb by the time the men had reached the foot of slum Gullion Pass. The men had even chewed the leather from their boots. Do Remember hearing this. They were eating their clothes because there was nothing to eat. They're eating their saddles And I do believe they even slaughtered a pack mule. Awhile because you know the old days when you're traveling net from Delta to this tour slum Gullion is yeah that seventy eighty miles in the old days. Seventy eighty miles in the snow is a week. That's a week to two weeks travel and you talk and seven eight. You know so. They going to eat something. I'm sure back. In those days. They went up hill with no shoes. Right it was crazy. That's right I did. Starvation was upon them. What was a man to do to survive? In the winter of eighteen seventy four six weeks later packer appeared alone at the Los Pinos Indian agency near so watch this another reason. I wanted to read this story because all these crazy Colorado names and you'd be like Gucci. It town call so watch. That's about fifty miles away from fifty sixty miles away from Lake City. Okay so sticking about six weeks travelling alone okay there. He told the sad tale of losing his fellow miners in a snowstorm. Buddy seems so well fed and and was spending money freely from several wallets well-fed Yep. The story began to unfold when strips of human flesh found unfold. My as they went in there they literally went to his horses. Chang Matt and Hound Strips and Chunks of human flesh any Alabama while. I do remember that they had apparently been murdered and showed and then showed evidence of being cannibalized. Nice that's still. Yep Packer escaped and was at large for many years. When he was captured he was tried at the Hinz Dale County courthouse which still stands today in his in my hometown of Lake City and he was found guilty of murder. He was sentenced to be hanged on. May Nineteenth eighteen eighty three but won a new trial in gunnison where I went to high school is also yeah there. He was convicted of five counts of murder and was sentenced to forty years in the state penitentiary at cannon city. Now the problem is they're actually seven liners with him. Okay so I don't know I only got five counts. Who knows? Packer never accepted blame for murdering all five of his companions. There were more but he did admit to shooting and killing Wilson Bell South Israel Swan. The oldest member of the Party died of natural causes stated packer and he was cannibalized by surviving members of the Party. That was one of them now. I know he admitted to that one. I remember hearing about it. They just basically had no choice. There was nothing to eat. Yeah and I think he had He was they were thinking about bringing him. I think they had his body with them. They dislike cut his legs off or something. And that's why he wasn't convicted of a Wilson Bell because it was defense so defense and it's two. Oh they claim Denver Post columnist polly pry launched a crusade on packers behalf. He was paroled in nineteen zero one and spent his final days near Littleton. Colorado outside of Denver Packer died in April nineteen zero seven after suffering a stroke and he is buried in the cemetery at Little Toe. National attention was focused on Lake City. The summer of nineteen eighty nine as a team of archaeologists and forensic experts on earth the grave of five men who had been murdered one hundred fifteen years earlier and I know exactly where the spot in the they have it preserved fence. He'd been actually go down. Oh Yeah Nice. It's right there outside Lake City. When you drive in from slum going pass you come down okay and there's a little ranch right there it's on private land but they have it they have it preserved and you can't get down to it if you want to cool. I want to go something. Yeah I am going to do that one of these days for sure. Did Packer kill all five of his companions and then live off their flash for weeks yes they kill each other no or would the scientists find nothing beneath a memorial boulder which which lists the names of those unfortunate men? James Humphreys Frank Miller got hope. I wish it was the Frank Miller. That wrote that Bullshit Batman Superman crap. What the movie of the comic. Both I hate that for the comics. Great movie sucked now. I Hate Frank Miller Jackass anyway. But that's just my personal opinion. Sorry for George. Moon Israel Swan and Wilson Bill in the summer of nineteen eighty nine. A team led by doctor. James Stars of George Washington University exume the bones of the victims for a scientific study at the human identification lab in Arizona. They concluded that the bones did show evidence of cannibalism and violent deaths. He actually had pickaxe them to death. Holy Shit Yeah. He uses his reminders so he uses mining tools to kill them. Wow holes in the skulls things like that damn see. That's what's cool about the store. I'm into this because this is like me growing up. This is part of my life. Also I think new band name holes. In the skulls holes in the skulls goals nice the remains were then returned to Lake City and reinterred on fifteenth and a multi-denominational service the bones from each skeleton replaced in one of five compartments and a single wooden box camp. The remains of these five prospectors again rest peacefully on the bluff overlooking the lake fork. All right now I will say this the grave when they exhumed it is only a mere feet deep. He had barely covered them with dirt. That okay that amazes me because they buried him in eighteen eighteen hundreds and he only buried 'em too deep yet in one hundred years. The soul did not erode enough to where it was exposed. That's crazy we'll because first of all they're When when it freezes in Colorado the ground is like concrete so the reason it was only about two feet dis probably as as much as he could manage the dig surprised animals in dig him up to very deep. Yeah you would think bear or something crawling back because bears like dead meat. They don't like to kill. I know that sounds odd. But it's true. They are scavengers right than they are. Killer Schiffer Salmon there the salmon. They fucked him salmon. Yeah The article continues the facts concerning the Alfred packer trial between November eighteen. Seventy three in January eighteen seventy four. Alfred Packer traveled with a party of Twenty one men from Utah to chief. Your as camp outside of what is now Montrose Colorado. Which is the first town. I lived in when we moved their little. So this is like holy crap this memory lane going back packer and five other men from the party left you raise camp and early February bound for the LAS PENAS agency about thirty five to forty miles. Northwest of Swatch. Packer was the only member of the party to appear at the agency. On April sixteenth. Eighteen seventy four while there. He gave his first confession regarding the death of his companions. He was placed in jail from which he would escape with assistance in early August. Nine years passed before packer was captured near Fort Fetterman Wyoming in March of eighteen eighty. Three he then made his famous second confession about this. I had heard an alternate start of this okay. That he went to the grave denying that he murdered his guys. I have heard several versions. But one of the stronger stories. He to his dying day You know he confessing. Neat are he. Professed that he never killed these guys packers. First trial occurred in the upstairs courtroom of the Hillsdale county courthouse during the first two weeks of April eighteen. Eighty three he was found guilty. His conviction was reversed however on October thirtieth eighteen eighty five and a second trial took place in gunnison. Yes and eight and I can't help it. I'm loving this in August of eighteen. Eighty six at that time. He was sentenced to forty years and the Colorado penitentiary in January nineteen. O One governor Thomas Parole Packer. He moved to the Denver area where he remained until his death. On April twenty third nineteen o seven damn healing got six more years of freedom. Ha Six more years. Wow he was in there for a while. Yeah he was he. He actually had a huge following of people that were supporting him. For some reason uh-huh yes. He had friends and stuff like that and I guess he had a decent reputation before he struck out with these people as a fairly decent guy when he was out there. I guess you know even the best men. It comes time desperation. You know like I said the eight to one dead. Some of it right you know. He died eight him up And then they're out again and are starving to death. Yeah I mean they're out there for weeks in dead cold very little supplies. You Know Sat. Eat something easy something. Yeah and then he went to work. And you know Do I think he actually did it? Yeah I do Like I said there was too much there was too much evidence. But then again also like the they said evidence of cannibalism. Yeah the bones and the ground for that long. We're talking one hundred years and a shallow grave. Yeah could have been fiddled with and just you know 'cause At years after years of dirt flowing right then again And that's like I say because they exhumed them And they said there's evidence cannibalism Blah Blah Blah. John Violence. You know it could have been. They could've been chewed on by animals before he managed to bury them. I think forensic scientists can tell difference between a animal by human by them again. I don't think he was holding. Somebody's FEMUR and chomping down flesh from there. They said flesh. But I'm thinking more muscle. But they they found strips of flesh on him so in his saddlebags and that's a hint and a half year is yeah. He's eighteen hundred. Jeffrey Dahmer. You know I mean you know in the Colorado eighteen hundreds. It's still sort of a It's UNA- wild unexplored territory it. It's very Solarz. It's it's very dense. I mean it can you can. You can get lost. You can get stuck. I mean the Dahmer Party had the same issue. Exactly you know to this day. Lake City is the only city the only town in the entire Hillsdale county. Okay that is the largest county in Colorado and it was the least populated while I live there as a kid. Two hundred people in Colorado was the indigenous Population Colorado's a pretty famous state. I mean things about five or six hundred now year round and it swells. I mean there's a lot of house up there I have a house up there. Yeah and so but yet spread way out but back then there was nothing just literally fifty miles one way to creed which is the other way which is another mining town. Okay and then the other ways fifty something fifty five miles to gunnison which they mentioned in the story either way on the other ways. Same thing and if you're caught in a snowstorm I mean you're not really gonNA go very far. Desperation will definitely drive you to do some crazy shit and snow blindness. Can you know you get lost and before you know it you just you die of Hypothermia? That's it you're popsicle So I mean at that point if you're if you're Hunkered Down with some people and somebody dies. You know flays ass like I said and they actually had the jail cell that they had him locked up in Was in the city park down there and Lake City four about forty years. Shallow big solid iron. I mean it was outside the whole time to and soccer held up I was like damn and they need to have it. They used to have a next. This caboose and it was a tourist attraction. Oh on there and lock them in before they extradited him for his trial as to how and then he then like I said he escaped hid for nine years. They right caught his ass putting. That's but sparse in those times. You can have you can have. I could go up there right now. Yeah and disappear. Yeah well yeah you know if you're gonNA cheat and use heat vision and ship then all the Predator you ask them rolling them out or whatever but you can literally vanish back in those woods. Oh yeah so. I am actually surprised. They found those bodies to be honest with you. I was like Holy Shit but I feel like I at this. Actually I take that back. They didn't find about it. Why don't you say that they didn't find the bodies until eighteen hundreds because they took accounts of the stories he was talking about in the General Area? Where the murders took place. And they use ground radar to try to locate the bones. Guy Down the ball okay. That makes more sense. That's right okay. Jeez yeah I should be ashamed of myself. Now you're Fine Armand. That's pretty cool. Man is an interesting story. I had never heard of Alfred Packer before but then again from Colorado. He's literally the most notorious story of the entire state. I mean there's lots of cool stories but he's like one the front burner almost on every you know when you talk about tourism stuff like that. He's everywhere I felt like he is Colorado's version of egging. Like the only reason Ed. Geene is more famous his because of his influences on movies Buffalo. Oba's inflow bill flow. Bill bossing howdy. Doody she he was the orange for Leather face in Texas chainsaw massacre and he was influenced for Psycho Norman Bates. So I think if he hadn't been influenced for those three like he would have been a state legend much like Alfred. Packer was. Yeah I think if our Packard had had some sort of a movie or some sort of famous character model left and we would have heard about him because I hadn't heard about him until you brought him up also say because he's been they Colorado hogs this guy he's he's one of their legendary are notorious people. Yeah so yeah they keep his legend there for tourism. Say they're not gonNA spread him. Can you hear about Al Flight Hiker? No New York but why not because then people wanna go visit true crime buffalo and go and visit and Sal Arado and say and say Shit. Yeah people go and travel to Wisconsin all time to see jeans Farm near will they can't so I mean Colorado you need to get your hatch. Ask Packer more. I guarantee you get true. Crime fans up there visiting spending their tourist dollars and strengthen your economy and this is not a political talk show no they just smoke a lot of dope brother even more allowed. You will get even more tourists up there to smoke your dope and check out your true crime after packer. Yeah kits. River raft is some Kampen. You go you know. We do a little ghost hunting for some Alfred Packer victims and smoke some weed. That's right that's right. That's right well. This was a lot of fun Thanks again James for taking the reins on this one yes sir. Great Story and We will see you folks Next episode piece piece. Oh and don't forget to stay tuned for the personal encounter stories coming up right now. The following personal encounter story comes to us from sixty six fly caster on read. It used with his permission. I'm fifty-three-year-old experienced. Outdoorsmen live in the mountains of northwest Colorado. And I've worked as a fishing guide and has spent many nights camping in the backcountry. The area where I live surrounded by national forest having lived in several cities. I've always been more comfortable in the woods than anywhere. I've spent weeks fishing hiking and camping and remote areas of Colorado Wyoming Montana and Idaho. I've encountered many black bears and a few grizzlies matlins elusive so. I've only seen one. Occasionally I see fresh tracks and have the feeling of being watched only been scared a few times in the woods only twice I've been terrified and have had no good explanation. For either event I decided to go on afternoon hike one day. I like this particular trail where I park about six miles from home. I saw one other truck there. I drank some water and ate a sandwich before locking everything up including my phone and my gun in the truck. I intentionally travel light so I can move fast only planned about thirty minutes and thirty back wearing running shoes. Shorts t shirt and a bright yellow baseball head notably. The hat is so nicely bright. That friends say it's probably scarce fish. I began running about two PM as the first few miles a relatively flat trails follow a creek that flow off a mountain through canyon. There are several trails that branch off heading up in the mountains. I'd prefer a particular trail that follows the edge of the canyon with the creek flowing below. It's absolutely gorgeous before the trail get steep. It takes you through a large Aspen Grove. There is a point about thirty minutes in where I plan to turn around. The trail becomes increasingly less worn and more difficult beyond this point. I have hiked that area many times. Something felt off this time. I didn't feel normal. I moved through the Aspen Grove before taking a steep trail up a mountain when I got a strange feeling I stopped notice. It was quite something made me look up the mountain to the right at a point. Several hundred yards above. I noticed a large granite rock formation. The area is off trail so I'd never looked there before I thought I saw movement probably a black bear as they are coming. I was curious so I pressed on definitely not scared at this point but notice the silence. I continued hiking and reach the point ride plan to turn around decided to hike further hoping to see what caught my eye earlier the trail becomes overgrown and harder to follow at this point so I had been farther than this before but never off trail. I noticed an aspen tree bent over the trail. It had been up rooted in broken off. The tree was green so it was odd could have been a lightning strike but wasn't clear locked. Maybe another eighth of a mile and then took the right off a trail heading in the directions of granite rocks. I wasn't concerned about getting lost. Since it was easy to orientate myself with the Canyon and creek a hiked the trail toward the large metal with many granite boulders reflecting on it now something was compelling me to the meadow I climbed scrambling up the hill to get where I could sit got to. The meadow unnoticed. The rocks look like look like Granite Fortress. I set down on a log and enjoyed the scenery looking down into the Canyon and the creek below the metal and rocks behind me looking around. I didn't see any animals suddenly noticed it was dead quiet. It had been a sunny warm day. With birds and bugs everywhere wasn't scared yet. But notice the extreme silence. I could hear the creek before so. It wasn't as startling as it is now. I began taking off my running shoes. Notable is this isn't something normally do since I have permanent nerve damage to my right ankle. I Walk and run with a limp and sometimes where a brace I remember feeling like my feet were burning wasn't particularly hot button over seventy degrees Fahrenheit. I was becoming unnerved by dead silence and started tying my shoes. This is where things turned weird. I clearly heard my father called me by my first name. The voice was loud and came from behind. I talked to my father earlier in the day. He was at his home in Georgia. No Way was calling me from the rocks behind. Immediately I became overcome with fear. Difficult to describe how overwhelming it was. I began sweating and shaking. It was like knowing lioness stalking me without seeing but more terrifying definitely not fucking around at this point I stood up and looked behind me and saw nothing but large granite rocks started hauling ass down the hills toward the canyon trail below absolutely terrified and I was feeling like something was chasing me. I literally stumbled and fell and rolled down the mountain. I got back up but couldn't recognize anything. It looked completely different. No Canyon Creek or a trail. It was cloudy and I wasn't in the same place anymore. At this point I started hauling ass and what I thought was the right direction and eventually I found the trail and recognize my location. I sprinted through the Aspen Grove back to the truck. I didn't look at my watch. Not sure how long I was gone. I was so terrified. I could hardly drive home. Not sure what happened. But I've never been so afraid in my life. I know something was stalking chasing me. Yes I have gone back to the area from time to time but I'm too afraid to go to the same metal with the granite boulders. I've considered going back but well armed but my instincts tell me it's a bad place. I will never hike again without my three fifty seven. And haven't since something scare the hell out of me and I feel like I was close to being a victim I trust at my flight instinct kicked in for good reason. You've been listening to force Hun Sean.

They took they succeed. Thank you for tuning into the GMC Weird News podcast brought to you by the GMC. PODCAST network. I'm your host I emily Farrier here to bring you my favorite weird news stories from the past few days now starting is off this week. dumbo moving into the Sri Lankans hotel. Yeah I don't know if you guys are familiar with Dumbo. Hello one of my favorite movies completely butchered by the remake in my humble opinion So what's happened in this news story. Is that a wild elephant has been filmed enjoying stay in a hotel in Sri Lanka. The elephant named not a Kota meaning short tail. How cute is it regular to the jet wing Yellow Hotel on the island southeast East Coast so he lives in the grounds and from time to time makes makes his way in sight seems completely unfazed by his surroundings? So this footage was uploaded to twitter. Yes a couple of days come and the twitter video rates reads woke up to a text from my mom about how a wild elephants into a street. Lincoln Hotel in gently wandered around poking stuff whether trunk. It's not clear when the footage was taken but this is this is something that's been uploaded before four. Several videos have caught the same elephants. And actually it's not available anymore which is a bit of shame but that is is cool. I'm going to talk about it any so. They said please note that though he's as a regular visit visitor he's still wild elephant and will remain as such while it is exciting and memorable encounter wild animals in around our hotels we humbly request that guests respect their space and maintain a healthy distance. At all times please avoid feeding the animals and refrain from using flash photography. The hotel is located in a Dune. Where many wild animals live? If not fenced off the complex animals are regular visitors to the grounds where guests can see them. I mean it would be pretty incredible to see these elephants walking around like inside inside a hotel. I'm not really sure why they need. They need a hotel stay. Maybe they're on vacation. You know. Elephants need need vacations to probably feel like celebrities over there. You know like people go to To certain places to see animals like us right so they probably feel like okay here. We go a Paparazzi not added again taking video of me. Just have an old jaunt around my hotel. I wonder if they think hotels. Are you know activities activities like massive buildings that house all of these people. They're probably like look around for the source of the people. Were they'll come in from it's going on. I think this is this definitely would make me want to stay in this hotel what you would do you would you wanNA. I don't know what do you what do you think. Would you want to see that. Would you WANNA go stay. Stay in a hotel a the elephant or would that scare you. Elephants are scared of mice. How did they feel about people? I don't know I've never I've never encountered in.

Classic Classic Hilarious Line one one twitter user Zor set waiting for the bellboy step in and ask if he would like help with his trunk. Luggage hilarious. Another side I love the way.

Was anybody else disappointed by that. Jumanji I remember. Actually I remember being really scared of Tramonte when I was a child child's just being really horrified of this of like this idea that he's animals and things like jumping out into like This is a real example of that a real live example of huge animals coming out into real life like the museum. Zia with all those things waking up you know. Has Anybody been to the Natural History Museum in New York. I definitely felt like they were going to come to to life. It's really scary. How how close to a live? Look even there is ready ready to go. So what do you think. Would you stay at this hotel just to see to catch a glimpse of the elephants or would you maintain paint a very safe distance. What do you think are you? You intrigued or horrified of being moved Faucet. That is awful of me to say all right. You tell me so when we come back we're going to talk about a crow was wreaking havoc on a parking lot. Or the sequel to Edgar Allan Poe's the Raven turned out this build around the women of Edmund from the UFC to the extreme cage. Fighting Regatta fights covered the golden state media concept's women's MMA podcast the latest news of up. Kobe pipes discussions previous matches. Join us as we talked to in about the biggest names in women's mixed martial martial-arts present and future when it's the women's freight getting you know where to listen to golden state media concepts women's an ever made podcast take and welcome back before the break. We talk about an elephant invasion in a hotel and now in other weird animal news accroding George vandalize. Vandalize is the windscreen wipers of twenty cars. Yeah Crow is vandalizing is in cars in a parking lot in the UK office workers are not sure what to do about a Pesky Crow who's vandalized twenty of their cars to zero era her having to cover up their windscreen wipers with Tarpaulin and blankets. HOPE TO GROW I. I just fantastic image. Isn't it like people. Having to completely barricade their a their cars away from from this little medicine crow who I can only imagine is is vandalizing everything we know in retaliation for them trying to keep 'em away from their crops. You know you scare me. I scare you know scarecrows anyway. So big names this crow George. He began in his campaign of destruction last year in November and since then more than a dozen people have come back to their cars to to find some significant damage image on each of them. It's happening outside Greenfield's community housing in Daintree Essex Georgia's thought to have struck a nearby village as well this fugitive. He's on the run. He's on the loose while forum. A member of staff here are Amanda. Vivani told the BBC. He's attacked by twenty cards. And even though we've tried to shoo him away oh come back Pakistan Don Don. We're looking for a long term solution to deter George which is going to keep him and his friends here but it is becoming a bit of a problem all say that's a lot of cars to vandalize. The office. Installed is to our figures to the top of its office roof and fitted it's Hawk shaped kite aimed Chesney Hawk in the middle of its car park parking lot for us over on this side of the sea. It's hoped the bird. Figures will deter George ripping off anymore or windscreen wipers. Housing Group has since issued an appeal to the public to come up with a long term solution. which will stop staff cars from being attacked? Yeah so in. One of one of Georgia's victims at the moment. We're just winging it with these attempts solutions and I'm hoping for some suggestions something more substantial that we could do we welcome. The idea is to deter George committing antisocial behaviour whilst remaining comfortable it is home what what do we think about this vandal crow. Do we think he's a menace to society or two. We think he just wants love and his acting out against humans. That Vilnai's crows since a movie birds in the thirties. Kind of sad when you think about it probably. Isn't it okay when we come back from the break. We're GONNA talk about a possibility of bigfoot being spotted in Washington who return the break. He'll go anywhere. This is your ultimate staffer. Everything sports the Golden state media concepts or podcast. Should I say more from the NFL Melby the NBA MMA amendment. It's all in here. Golden state media concepts sports broadcasts. Listen welcome back before the break talks about a criminal crow now sasquatch citing a traffic jam may have caught big. May maybe we'll dive into this a little bit. I'd like to hear your thoughts on bigfoot. What you think it is was could be before we get to that So this image right was captured at Sherman Pass in a remote part of Washington possible bigfoot sighting in an unlikely place the Washington State Department of Transportation posted a curious image of what appears has to be a person or sasquatch or. Just go to the very humanoid shape off a highway at Sherman Pass in the state's remote northeast corner. The first tweet reads sasquatch spotted. I'm not superstitious. Just little stitches. Have you noticed something. Strange on our Sherman Pass Webcam before if you look closely by the tree on the left. Her looks to be something something that might be. SASQUATCH will leave it up to you. The department's plows stopped in the area. But bigfoot if he had been there or where she gets twenty twenty bigfoot could be a woman had a had bugged out by the time the crews arrived a follow up tweet. We made it back from. Sherman pass made several passes an even stopped at the top of the summit near the camera to see if we could find sasquatch. Such doc was a beautiful drive with the crews say cleared snow so I glance it looks like a sasquatch might have been just like the combination of trees and light and there was actually a screen shot earlier in the month that also showed something that was Kinda sasquatch shaped in the same spot. It's hard to tell because of all the snow and such at this time of year older screen shots however don't seem to reveal anything suspicious in the location the department promised there would be more to the story in the future another tweet from memory. It's it's a hundred percent not a tree trunk. It has a story that will be revealed in February. We do our quarterly check of the camera. In other words words the truth is out there. GotTa wait for it. His all good things take time in the meantime whoever's running being the department's twitter of for the highway at the pass the northwestern part of the state not far from Seattle shared aired footage of a person walking through the snow over bigfoot. What do you think? I think it's interesting that in this day and age. Were still having this big foot debate. I feel like a lot of things can be doctored. Nowadays today's including see TV But then it's like who do we believe we believe footage. Are we so jaded that take everything has been doctored these days. Obviously I do just said that. It's weird it's weird. It's a weird I yeah I don't know I I'm I'm not a conspiracy theorist myself I just report on the so So you guys tell me you know what do you think. Do you think big. Foot's out there. Do you think Nazis out there do you you think these are things that exist. Do you think they're leftovers from our prehistoric past are they diagnose or is it just a person it in a bear suit monkey suit when we return. We talk more monsters but It's time it's it's it's real monsters we're GONNA we're talking about Bobby's we're talking about some new new advancements in mummy research but we return check out this show build around the women man a man from the UFC invicta obscene bellcore one championship. We got the fights cover. It's the golden state media concepts women's MMA podcast. The latest news of coming fights discussions of previous matches joining us as we talk to and about the biggest names in women's mixed martial arts past present and future when it's the women's fright game you know where to listen to the golden state media concepts women's MMA podcast who all right. Welcome back before the break. We talked about a myth that might be real but now another monster that's not actually. Are Scientists recreate the sound of a three thousand year old Egyptian mummy to we think that this was an advancement that we needed. We think this is something that we needed to hear. This will really enhance your nightmares from now on. So researchers have recreated the vocal dejection priest named Nexium Liam using medical scanners three D. Printing and an electronic larynx. So just in case. You're not scared enough of these. Ancient embalmed beings researchers say that they've mimicked the voice this mummy Bhai recreation in a published paper Thursday By the Scientific Journal reports author say that the technique allowed them to produce a single sound somewhere between the vowels in bed and bad. The Erie tone is unlikely to be precise reflection of the speech Because obviously the tongue has lost its book over being dead for three Millennia Three Millennia. Three thousand years. This thing's dead lost a lot of it's bulk you've made a faithful sound for its track in its current position but we wouldn't expect the exact same speech match given his tongue. State said Co author David M Howard of London's didn't Royal Holloway. College model alone isn't enough to synthesize whole words or speech author such noting that this would require he -bility to calculate the audio output from the vocal tract. is its shape is being changed. This is something being worked worked on so could be possible. One day said Howard Rudolph high again an ear nose and throat expert at the university hospital so we were reserved Berg Germany who specializes in thorax reconstruction and wasn't involved. The study expressed skepticism. I for one agree with skepticism. I mean and it's like that thing when they when they recreated what Jane austen would have looked like based on renditions of of portraits of her likeness. Nisa first of all what a lot of them are hurt like she painted them or stuff and I mean they did not like the best mirrors. Can you. Don't everything Kinda warped in such anime produced. Some sounds from her as well like what she would have sounded like like based on the facial structure in bone structure that created from aiding. And it's just like this is a lot of separation you know like. You're you're asking us to nick to go to suspend disbelief here. You're asking that you're going through a lot of stages I would like to see this vocal reconstruction sounds like like like with the more recent body you know like if they like If tried it on like Winston Churchill in and then we could like listen to the rendition like rendition. Founding compare back to tapes of Winston Churchill. Like okay this is either true or false. I think that would that would convince. Yeah that would make me less sceptical Seru Higgins said saw even cutting edge medicine struggles to give living people without authorities in normal voice. He said yes. So so what I was saying. You don't even a little bit. You got to suspend your disbelief go author John. SCOFIELD's archaeologist at the University of York said the technique could be used to help to people interpret historical heritage that that would be pretty incredible if we were able to them these together. It's of history. We haven't been able to before. When visitors encounter the past it is usually a visual encounter? The scofield with this voice we can change that make the encounter more multidimensional see that I agree I would like it really immerses you in a world when you're when you're when you're able to kind of hear things and things like root like a historical reenactments you know Kinda makes you understand Time periods and experiences better than than just kind of seeing it in reading it that way inclined he goes on to say there is nothing more personal than someone's voice so we think hearing a voice from so long ago will be an unforgettable experience hits making heritage places like Karnak temple he said. Yeah Okay I see that. Do you feel like you know me more personally because you know my voice. I guess. That's sort of weird. You guys have no idea what I look like unless you read the the information back on on this podcast than you would see my head shot. Otherwise you don't know what I look. I like that sort of weird actually. That's that's true of myself. I don't I have some favorite podcasters that I listened to that I Genuinely have no idea what they look. Take and how that would change. Wonder how is it. which is your opinion of me? Have you know when we return is technology trying to kill us.

Horrific the ways APP directs drivers into the Wilderness instead of the Casino. An ad in the OPS navigation off is misdirecting motorists added to Atlantic. City's BORGATA HOTEL CASINO SPA into New Jersey's Pine Barrens. Instead Jackson Township police posted on facebook at officers officers in recent weeks about to help motorists and follow the directions into the Colliers Mills Wildlife Management Area where they became stuck unpaved roads. The wildlife area is comprised more than twelve thousand acres mainly located in Jackson employees instead townships which shot is about forty five miles away from the casino in Atlantic City which is off of the expressway in Atlantic City. According to police the problem stems from an orange logo on the ways up the address. In the oddest correct but the location is been in the wildlife area. said the police So this is a common problem. I I've experienced ZIP myself personally I've been led astray by By out gone wrong. I remember I was driving. Having to an Improv. Meet up in high school with.

So I thought I would give you eight more examples of drivers who blindly followed their. GPS into disaster. We're one nearly May.

And then she was up her friend at the train station in her side also caught on and called the police when she returned earned home. She said I've been.

The driver followed the sound of the female voice until the truck ended up wedged in a cradle of a cherry tree. Chuck was stuck fast in the driver could reverse. Local officials eventually had to chop down the tree to get the truck out and the number eight hearing into a sandpit.

So we're back to the most profound shower thoughts on red at this week. I didn't realize all the itches. You have over your body until you read this this or heard this. In your case somebody just decided blue ink pants or equally as acceptable ebel as black and everyone just played along an excellent point. I never thought of you. Never notice how much your headways until arresting it on your sleeping dog so true. You just like you have to transit so much that you're not putting too much weight on the right a wireless charger restricts restricts your phone as much more than wired ones I mean. I don't know that I agree with on. Well actually actually Oh that is true. Sorry I was thinking of like a portable charger. Yeah wireless that is very true. It's gotta sit on there. That's a good point. There probably tortoise. This is still alive Charles Darwin the Galapagos Islands. Wonder what they thought of him. You would never drive that close to a car coming at speed in the opposite opposite direction you would if it weren't for the line the line of paint on the ground between you and the car just all numbers or closer to zero than the are to infinity. Will that is true. It's a true fact. Eating ice cream is portrayed as happily moment as a kid but betrayed depressing as an adult. All that's sad that's a very very good point. What did ICE Cream Start being a surfing sad thing? I don't like that. That's that's one of the biggest allies in the world. Is that the customer's always right. Oh big time I feel you feel you vice. People born in twenty twelve have a decent chance of dying in the reverse of that year. All weird careered out one is weird. Isn't it weird. Anyone was born in two thousand twelve. You probably shouldn't be listening to this. PODCAST get stuff. It's inappropriate pitches like go outside. Dentists study the dangers of plaque. In order to receive a plaque that says that he can remove your plaque was a lot. The truest example of Pavlovian conditioning is that every every time you hear Pablo heavy automatically think of dog. I love that one so much. The Moon is the most amount of land humans. Men's will ever see at once interesting. Although only a select form of humans will see it up close and personal on all of us can be astronauts. Adult having a boring desk job is seen as a bad thing but we force children have a boring desk job for twelve years so true poor little tiny humans as an adult. There's nothing stopping you from turning your house into a giant blanket. Ford will. I'm doing that right now. I'm sitting under a blanket. It must be hard for dragons to blow candles all out scariest. Fireworks are the ones who don't explode. UFO'S IOS may actually be tourist carrying cruise ships from the future. That's a scary thought being able to read minds. What actually sucks? Since most people would just hear the same five seconds of a song playing on a loop if it was for their fame. Harry Ron and righty probably wouldn't have gotten jobs since they didn't attend the last year of school and didn't take their leaving exams. Excellent point that is fame as his appointment childhood where you stop getting praised for long sleeves and start getting chastise for them. Yeah Yeah Stop telling me as we've been too much sometimes hugs wonder if the CEO of Coca Cola Mendoza friends real life like that one a lot in. Here's an eerie. Wanted to leave you on. You are not actually afraid of being being alone in the woods or the dark. You're afraid that you're not alone it on that note.

January 24: Staying on message
"I'm trying to winter and I'm a little long. Welcome to chosen family every second week. We talk about art sexuality and identity with a special guest usually Queer airport not always. I completely struggled coming out to my parents. As a comedian being in the entertainment industry for a Middle Eastern people is unheard of affecting change requires requires people to shake it up. Listen to chosen family wherever you get your podcast. What sign are you by the way area? Of course I love it. This is a CBC podcast. Hello I'm carol off good evening. I'm Chris Boden. This is as it happens. The podcast edition tonight staying on message as House. Democrats wrap up their case for convicting the US. President one congressman shoots back at the Republican senators. Who insist they haven't learned anything new you a parasite to behold doctors thought? She had a tumor in her liver. But what an Alburto woman learned about what was really growing insider is enough to make anyone. squirm kept kept in the dark the head of Canada's Transportation Safety Board says Iran is mostly cooperating with her teams investigation into the down Ukrainian opinion airliner. But it's high time to hand over the black boxes a storied career. The late Jim Lehrer spent many of his fifty years as a journalist. OPPOSITE HAS PBS. Yes co-anchor Canadian Robert. macneil tells us they spent those same fifty years as very close friends talk like an Egyptian. The Voice of a three thousand year old mummy comes to life as scientists. Use a three D. Printer to produce an electronic version of the ancient priests Larynx and rock by baby on the laptop. He doesn't know it yet. But Baby Ryan is already an Internet star. Thanks to his dad who spent a year splicing his babbling being in cooing to the tune of the hard rock anthem. Thunderstruck as it happens the Friday edition radio that figures now he knows his. CDC's it on the Senate floor. This week Democratic Congressman. Adam Schiff pleaded for his colleagues patients and their full attention at times he got but neither Mr Schiff along with several other house. Democrats had twenty four hours total to convince the Senate to convict. US President Donald Trump and remove him from office. They report over. The evidence showed the senators video clips and invoked the founding fathers. Meanwhile Republican senators could be seen with crossword puzzles novels and fidget spinners. Some even napped today marks the last day the Democrats can argue their case that president trump abused power and obstructed congress. Starting tomorrow president. Trump's defense is team will take the floor. Jamie Raskin is a democratic congressman. We reached him in Washington. DC Congressman Raskin this week. Do you think your democratic colleagues convinced any Republican senators to convict the president realistically. I don't think anybody was necessarily moved shoe. That point point in the Senate I think if you had a jury of one hundred impartial American jurors vast majority would have been moved the evidence. This is overwhelming. It's uncontradicted unrefuted. The president has no alibi. It's not a case of mistaken identity. There's basically no defense. which is why they keep pertaining the subject to talk about how rude someone was or speaker was passing out pens when she signed the impeachment? Thing I mean you know. There's there's every distraction in the book but there is no effort by the Republicans to actually confront the reality of the president's misconduct. So one thing you have to have two-thirds thirds in the Senate in order to actually remove the president from your impeachment but in order to get more witnesses and to get more evidence introduced. You don't need that many senators to come on site with the Democrats. Do you think you convinced senators even to go that far. Well I think a number of senders have been moved a a lot. Closer to voting for the production of documents and witnesses you know the the real x factor here is public opinion. I mean what's what's going to move them is political heat from their home states. And do you think getting that. Well I think they are getting it. One kind of telling glimpse into the situation has been Susan Collins who's been very jumpy and twitchy during this whole process She's clearly feeling the heat. She she also said the Senator Schumer who's had the Democrats in the Senate of course it's going to put the heat on me but he's also going to try to beat me at the polls and so the what we've got there was a glimpse into her world. You which is well even if she does the right thing and treats the trial like a trial. The Democrats are still going to be running against her so she may as well double down with Donald Trump and the Republicans and I think that really is the best window onto the politics the situation most of these Republicans feel like there's not much in it for them to move to a nonpartisan position about it. They've got to stick with the Republican but if they did vote to call more witnesses in the Senate as some Republicans pointing out our perhaps might do their enough for for them to do that. There are also possibly going to insist that Hunter Biden and Joe Biden. They are relevant witnesses and they should be called. So what would that. What do for the case? If those two men are brought into the Senate well you know the position as the House majority and the impeachment managers of course is there should be relevant witnesses and so they're relevant then by all means but of course hunter Biden and Joe Biden anything about Donald Trump's shakedown scheme team and how it was executed and how they held up the money with the office of Management and budget. And they're just not relevant witnesses that makes it into a a real partisan circus. You saw the senators appearing distracted. They're playing little finger games and and reading novels and doing crosswords. Whatever the even those who said that the Democrats laid out a good case mentioned that they laid it out over and over and over again that one hour or one session could have done it and that everyone repeated the same thing is reasonable to say that it became a kind of Democratic Echo Chamber first of all your rights that we are a country with attention deficit assist sort or on the other hand? There are people who are getting enjoy boxes all across the country every day who are not permitted to be on their phones and not permitted to play their games and they just have to pay attention and they're not paid remotely as much as the. US senators are so. I understand that the patron managers have repeated a number of themes. Maybe you you know. been a bit overboard on the other hand. They had said mercifully. You've given us three days. We're just GONNA use one day and the Republicans would be running around saying. Oh Oh you see. They don't even have enough to say so little evidence. Go back to the house. I mean when you say that. The senators have attention deficit disorder. The question is is what about the general public and I just wanted to play play a few clips that appeared today. This is out of New Hampshire. This these two Undecided voters. I particularly think it's a waste of of time for the government and I think that we should be focusing on the next election and doing what's best for our country rather than impeaching the current president. It's a waste. Have Time really believe that. The Democratic Party is really focused on this instead of focusing on the issues trump by voting on the issues. Not This kind of farce of distraction. That's from undecided. Voters you probably hearing from your constituents what do you make of that. What definitely not what I'm hearing from my constituents what's interesting though is if you look at the polling of independent independent overwhelmingly support impeachment conviction and the removal of the president so it's Democrats and independents And even a growing number of Republicans although it remains small most Republicans you know basically fulfill Oh Phil. Donald Trump's prophecy that he could choose someone on Fifth Avenue and he would maintain supporting the party. If you want people to understand the case for that Mr Trump abused power obstructed justice. which is which are the charges and you have a compelling case but you have to follow it closely to understand it and is not a problem? I mean if if senators are having a hard time following this. Is it possible that a lot of people will just find it noise. That actually might even come to help Mr Trump. The real question is whether people care enough about the constitution and care enough about what the presidency is going to be like in the future if Republicans to actually let him get away with this behavior which the president describes this absolutely perfect and he's completely unrepentant about it then it will allow trump's to continue to do that in the twenty twenty election and it will open the door or presidents in the future to drag foreign governments into our election. We will leave it there. And of course we'll be following this closely congressman Raskin. Thank you always delighted to be with you. Thanks for having me. Democratic Congressman Jamie Raskin was was in Washington DC and today Christa. Freeland said. She's confident that candidate is going to get answers from Iran about the downing of flight. PS seven five five to but the deputy prime ministers confidence is undercut by Iran's failure to hand over the planes flight recorders. The data and voice recordings on those black boxes are are a key part of the multinational investigation into the crash. Kathy Fox is the chair of the Transportation Safety Board of Canada. The agency has had a team of investigators in Iran Iran and has also been participating in the Ukrainian lead investigation in Kiev. We reached Kathy Fox in Gatineau Quebec. This Fox we heard Christa freeland today. They say she is confident. As the word she used that we will get all the answers. We need about this flight after more than two weeks since the crash. What does that confidence based on? I can't speak for the minister. What I can say? Is that our investigators who spent six days in Tehran and another another two days in Kiev. Describe their interactions with the Iranian accident. Investigation Bureau as Cooperative and helpful and they are getting access to more information than we would normally be entitled to under International Protocols. How unusual usual isn't that? You would not even have access at this point to the contents of those black boxes. Well the international protocols require the state leading the investigation to download the recorders without undue delay. Typically that can happen within a week or two We're now past the two week mark and no final title decision has been made so we certainly are hoping and urging the Iranians to make a decision quickly so that we can go to an wherever the recorders will be and And assist in the download and analysis. What reasons are they giving for this delay? Well first of all I think there's It's normal for or the Country that's leading the investigation to WANNA download those recorders in that country. But when that can't be done for whatever technical reason they normally go to another state so I can't speak to what's happening in in Iran in terms of What other factors may be at play here but part of the issue is definitely a technology issue shoe the the recorders were damaged and around may not have the equipment necessary and some of that equipment is not transportable so they are assessing? They have been the last couple of days. been assessing the feasibility of doing it in Ukraine. I haven't heard the final outcome of that and if that doesn't work then we'll see what other country may be able to do it. What are you hoping you can learn from that flight? Data that's on the voice recorders. So first of all The cockpit voice recorder which records the conversations between the pilots as well as any any other or audible sound will at least tell us whether the crew had any advance inkling of what was about to happen and then the flight data recorders will be able to tell us what the aircraft was doing it speed. Its altitude its flight path before the missiles went off and then after these data recorders quarter record thousands of parameters of Information and they do it on a second by second basis so that will give us a sequence of events in terms of what was happening in and around the airplane but that data then has to be corroborated with the physical evidence from the wreckage. And that will certainly tell a big part of the story. But it's not the only part of the story in the investigation certainly doesn't end when the recorders are downloaded and analyzed. But what we've heard is that there was no mayday. There was no urgent message. Sent from the cockpit doc pits so does that indicate that there was no time. There was no response from pilots before they were hit if there were no communications Or if there were no calls from the pilots to air traffic control and that is something that is also has to be validated. Then it could indicate either that they didn't didn't know or they didn't have time to call but again that information needs to be validated by the investigation and by the cockpit voice recorders before we can confirm they knew what was about to happen in the Iranians have said at some point that they believe that the plane had changed. Its course and that that may have been what triggered the the accidental shooting. Down of the plane. Is there any indication at this point that they did change course they they were turning. That again will the subject to review the flow of the goitre the recorders but also the flight data recorders will be recording. The aircraft's track it's heading and we'll be able to or should be able to indicate creative. They're not damaged. What passed the aircraft was following both before the missile strike? And what may have happened after cause remember depending on how they missile exploded and struck the airplane it may have been rendered uncontrollable immediately or or shortly thereafter. Can the black boxes show whether or not this. It really was an accident no I think that in terms of whether the missiles were launched intentionally or accidentally that requires a line of inquiry very with Those most directly involved to find out was there a breakdown in command and control. Communication coordination were their equipment limitations and were operators feeling threatened in some way by something that line of inquiry needs to be pursued to validate whether it was an accidental shootdown or intentional ruling. Out that it may have been intentional. Investigators put everything on the table when we start investigation nothing is ruled out until it can be confirmed by the evidence. Does Iran know that you have not ruled out that that might be intentional. I don't know what's been said. I don't know what they've heard but But this is not the first time I'm saying this publicly. So the key piece of evidence is the actual site of the crash which Iran. Dan cleaned up pretty quickly. It was bulldozed. What did your investigators were able to see? What the learn from the actual site? I can't tell you what they learned Because a lot of the information that they're going to bring back with them. We're not going to be able to release because one of the limitations of the international protocols is that we cannot share factual information formation. Unless it's already been shared by the lead investigation agency or unless we've been given permission to do so but we do know that not long after the accident accident occured because the debris field was so large and in in such cases it can be difficult to protect and even though the best practice is to be protected acted gritted off document where all the pieces were found that there was an intent to transport the wreckage to a secure site so that it wouldn't be contaminated or lost Investigators had the opportunity to visit both the accident site as well as to Reviewing examined the wreckage in a secure location to which it had been transported. How frustrated did you with this investigation? I think it's early days I think we're we remain Encouraged by the information. That's been shared. Tha Todate by the cooperation and helpfulness of the Iranian investigative team and By the fact that we're giving access to information that we would not normally have access to. The question is going to be will that continue for the future. Will we be given the the higher status that we've been advocating for and I can't answer that right now. Well then we will keep in touch and And Talk to you another time. I hope Miss Fox thank you. Thank you Kathy. Fox is the chair of the Transportation Safety Board of Canada. We reached her in Gatineau Quebec. You'll find more on that story and more of our coverage of the shooting down of flight. Seven five two on our website. CBC YOU DOT CA Slash Ai. H He didn't act like a legend. But that's part of what made him one. Jim Lehrer was a journalist for five decades. During which is steady thoughtful presence made him a giant of television news. As we told you last last night Mr Lehrer died yesterday in Washington he was eighty five years old. He started working for newspapers in Dallas and wound up becoming a news anchor in Washington for PBS CBS. He created and Co hosted. The macneil Lehrer report with his colleague. The Canadian journalist Robert macneil Mr was the most prolific presidential debate moderator television history and because of his reputation for fairness and diligence he was routinely given interviews with world leaders including American presidents. Maybe most famously in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. When he questioned President Bill Clinton about accusations he had a sexual relationship with Monica Lewinsky? Kenneth Starr Independent. Counsel is investigating investigating allegations that you suborn perjury by encouraging a twenty four year old woman former White House intern to lie under oath in a civil deposition about her having had an affair with you. Mr President is that true. That is not true. That is not true. I did not ask anyone anyone to tell anything. Other than the truth. There is no improper relationship and I intend to cooperate with this inquiry But that is not true no improper improper relationship define what you mean by that. Well I think you know what it means. It means that That there is not a a sexual relationship an improper sexual relationship or any the other kind of improper relationship. You had no sexual relationship with this. Young there is not a sexual relationship that is accurate. The we are doing our best to cooperate here but we don't so much yet and That's all I can say. Now what I'm trying to do is to contain my natural impulses and and get back to work. I think it's important that we cooperate. I will cooperate but I want to focus on the work at hand just for the record. Make sure I understand what you're answering means. There's no ambiguity acuity about it you had no conversations with this young woman. Monica Lewinsky about her testimony. Possible testimony running before In giving I did not urge anyone to say anything. That was untrue. Jim Lehrer Interviewing President and Bill Clinton in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. Mr Layer died yesterday at his home. In Washington he was eighty five. We reached his former colleague Co host and lifelong friend. Robert macneil in New York City Robert macneil festival and soy for the last of your friend and your news partner wrote thank you thank you. I was straight lucky because it's almost fifty years of a very close friendship and a business partnership and Being colleagues and anyway it was on all those levels so yes. It's it's very hard now any here and your friend go after president. Bill Clinton asking him about his sexual relationship ship with Monica Lewinsky. And whether he he. He encouraged her to lie. What does that say to you about how Jim Lehrer handled interview well? It's a very very good example of his pertinacity and without slamming somebody or being rude to them the background to that is that interview with Clinton it and had been arranged long before they are and then he woke up that morning and read in the newspaper that there was this allegation about the affair with Monica Lewinsky and he rang rang the instead. What do I do what I do and I said I don't know but you just have to ask him anyway He asked and Clinton lied to him about the fair while trying to tell the truth about the alleged Perjury but somebody almost immediately. Ah Somebody said in our staff. He lied to gymnastic. You don't lie to Jim. Lehrer it. There was a lot of truth in that and he interviewed all kinds of People Thatcher Arafat the King of Jordan and he just always the same dogged pursuit but that's never rattled always never giving up. He was like a dog with a bone. Listen we're we're we interviewed Margaret Thatcher together. Once in choose he was prime minister and He was sitting closer to her than I was. And at one point we need repeated down something she said and she slept on the knee and in your own. You keep us from me that Christner and I'm not going to run through it. What did you learn from him? You've been speaking about this over the past day or so about let you. You took away from being his partner for all these years what a straight shooter. He was Publicly and privately and we talked about everything the the two of US I mean. We have known secrets each other. You know a lot of people on television develop a kind of television persona they. They're going to make themselves more. We're into what they think television wants. Jim didn't do that at all the gym. You got on television. Where's Jim he was more serious than he often resident in private because he was very? He's funny guy and are we shared a lot of the same humor ironic humor and And discussed it things. The way things were going politically and so on somebody said years ago. It isn't hard to succeed on television. All you need to do is fake sincerity well. Jim didn't fix sincerity people. Oh came to know both of you when you were covering the Senate Watergate hearings in nineteen seventy three and that marathon. That would go on all day and all night as you try and make sense of that. I mean you must have got to know him pretty well right away and know that you wanted to work with this guy right and do it says Chris. Instant friendship remarkable to us both and because it hadn't happened in the same way before Jim had a lot of friends and made friends easily but we had a A relationship we're doing senator earlier was on all levels. We knew an awful lot about each other's finances whether he should by the house there's still in which involved a huge mortgage all all these things and We just talked about anything mostly part from the news of the day mostly about the books we were writing or hope to right. There were a number of rules that Jim Lehrer had that. Well I'm GonNa read some of them do nothing nothing that you can't defend. The story is not about me. He he said the assume that the viewer is carrying a knowing as I am assume private lives are private until it's necessary to explore explore them No anonymous quotes and noattacks in quotes and finally I am not in the entertainment business. Those are all rules should be dislike. You just nailed to the door of every journalist organising absolutely. I applaud them all and did. What did you understand about? Israel's why did he. Why was any so strict in that? Jim had a a very strong sense. Of what is right and wrong applied. Do anything he was. He was a Marlin she. We had an acute sense of the moral equation in any situation whether it was You know something about staff Coiro or an issue about how how we treat a certain story or whether we do or certain story and in personal lives he wrote fiction as as you do but he wrote he was reading all the time. You've Oh plays. Why did he feel that? Every day he needed to work on fiction was born wanting to do that. And he's not the greatest joy in the world would be earnest ascending way or another published author and he succeeded in doing it. He was full of ideas far more than I was. He wrote twenty two novels a lot. A lot of them could have been made into movies because the central idea was so strong but they weren't only his first novel leave. An axe was made into a movie with Peter Eastern off very funny novel imagining aboard Mexican General. Retaking the Alamo and all hell breaking loose after that very funny and you. I don't see the movie occasionally on late night TV. You know I was thinking about him. Just reflecting on the news cycles we now have it. And just how overheated a heated news coverage seems to be. What could Jim Lehrer bring to the new cycle as we now have it? How would he be covering the story today? I think and we talked talked about this. In fact quite recently we said God. Why don't we were doing it? Now what would it be like. His view of it was that he would have done it the way he did it before And he would have used the same demeanor. One of the ways in which public television can be different from Rant on cable television is that it can just be reasonably civil civil and And quiet and moderated literally moderated. Is there any particular memory of your fend. Jim Lehrer that did she cheshire right now. Well he was the best man at my wedding years ago. he He he he made the first of the bride and he said Ed It must be love because who else would marry a fifty four year old man with braces. You know we met. But we didn't made on the night of the Kennedy assassination nineteen sixty three. We were both in the police station in Dallas as they raided as back and forth but we never met until until ten years later but there are pictures of both of those in the police station that night he was later appointed by The Dallas Times Herald to stay on the Kennedy. Assassination consternation story for a whole year so he became the one closest to expert outside the official people. He believed that Warren Commission finding that also did it alone and because he believed that I believed to because he'd gone into it so thoroughly and he said I can't imagine that if somebody else was involved aww they wouldn't be able to resist on their death bed saying they had something to do with it because it was such a huge event momentous event. I haven't I P you said that you would share your memories. Jim Lehrer with us. Thank you thank you nice to be back on the CBC. where I started? Thank you thank you. bye-bye Robert macneil. The Canadian co-creator PBS's McNeil Lehrer report and a lifelong friend of Jim. Lehrer we reached Mr McNeil in New York City. Jim Lehrer they were died yesterday at his home. In Washington he was eighty five years old For years men were disappearing disappearing from Toronto's Gay village. I feel terrorized. I'm Justin Louis. This season on uncover we see this happening. How can Neo Nazi this? They suspected serial killer and they were right. Police arrested sixty six year old Bruce Macarthur. But this wasn't wasn't the first time in the village was targeted. You don't start killing at sixty six. You'd start killing when you're in your late teens. Early twenties uncover the village available. Oh now wherever you get your podcast cassidy. Armstrong had been feeling fatigue and pain in her ribs for years. It didn't feel good and and things didn't look good. Doctors suspected she had a rare cancer and thought she had a tumor growing on her liver. They recommended surgery but warned her. That even after that procedure seizure she might only have a few years to live but when she had the mass removed the situation looked much better but more complicated. She didn't have cancer at at all. But the doctors had discovered something rare and shocking had been growing insider we reached cassidy. Armstrong in Edmonton Cassidy. How you you feeling these days? I've been better it's slow. It's going to really slow process per healing but you feeling better A A little bit every day. Yeah just when did you first realize there was something going wrong First Time that I had physical symptoms I would have been a few years ago I had to kind of adult ache in my ribs and you went to the doctor. I did yeah I went to the a doctor and We thought that maybe it was Had a really good popped out or something and so I went and got some X.. Rays done but what I have wouldn't show up and that type of imaging So they didn't find anything that's a what did they do. What doctors do to try and find out what it was? It was called causing that pain. Well I wasn't really sure they didn't really have any other theories at the time of what else it could have been and for me like the pain wasn't really super bad and it would would kind of come and go and like it would disappear for months at a time so I just kinda left it and at. What point did you Newton to think that you had to find out a bit more Well it was years later the the pain was more constant and lasting longer And then I had some digestive issues. This is well and I had a new pain that showed up which was like a an aching pain in my right shoulder but wasn't responding to massage therapy or anything using like that. So that's what. I decided to get some more help. Induce more investigations when they did the tests. Would they say that you had They they said that they suspected that had a type of liver cancer. I'm probably not saying it right. But it's fibro Miller personnel so Quite rare I'm what what did they say. What would pug noses did? They give you that They said that I would have had well that prognosis for its very poor. So it's the type of cancer they have to cut the only ways to cut it out And then they can try chemotherapy afterwards. But that's not usually affective and I would have had maybe another two to five years even with surgery that day said he would only give you a few more years to live. Yeah and and then so you had the surgery last November. What did they find Well they discovered it was a day or two after surgery. that it wasn't in in fact cancer but it was a type of parasite that you get from dogs or coyotes tapeworm like tapeworm. Yeah but on a microscopic level. They're very very. It's very tiny. Did he tell you. Where was it what it looked like or anything about it? It took sixty five percent of my liver entire gallbladder. The cut a couple of nozzles off of my lungs and Scraped some of the off of my diaphragm I affirm that was old damage that the parasite had done yeah it it had started to grow and metastasized to other areas. Is it my body. Apparently it looks a lot like catcher so and it can spread a lot like cancer to other organs and other things in your body. What was it like when they came to tell you after you if you recover from surgery when they told you that that what you had ended? It wasn't cancer. What did they say to you? Well it was a team of people came in Disease Doctors that were at the hospital basically he. We don't think you have cancer. We think if you have this rare form of parasite coal to the kind of okkas multi. Lucky Lara's And so I remember asking them and like well okay. Is that a good thing and they said it's a much better than what they thought that I had did. They have any theories as to how you you got this parasite Yeah I've been racking my brain to. They're saying that you know people can get from contact with. The eggs usually usually spread through the feces of coyotes and dogs. So I haven't owned a dogs until I was a little girl so as to how I got it. I don't know I was a mechanic for many years. So it's possible that may be from working on Farm equipment. I could have gotten it that way. I mean it's it's very rare but they are finding more more cases specifically here now Berta so and you haven't had any contact with coyotes. No no not at all. You remember that if you had. Yeah I think you occurred but now what what is said to you about this. The odd thing that so many cases of of this parasite repair sides being found in being misdiagnosed. They're being found onto no BERTA. Why do you think that's the case? I mean they've known about this in Europe for quite a long time but they theorize that they somebody brought over some hunting foxes. Fox's or some dogs from Europe and that's how it spread why specifically over to I'm not sure they are fighting really high rates of it among the Coyote population here in Alberta I think possibly rodents can carry it too. But don't quote me on that because I'm not the expert but the fifteen proven cases in the past six years. Yeah yeah so I mean it's growing it's spreading. I mean those are just the cases that saves confirmed and that they know what about it can stay dormant in your body for like. They suspect I've had it for about ten years. Cassie I'm glad you're feeling better and I hope you get a full Slovo covering me to take care of yourself okay. Cassidy Armstrong recently discovered. She had a mass growing insider ryder an infection caused by the eggs of tapeworm we reached her in Edmonton in just a few years ago Hansel Gretel Nibbles Munchkin and Dallas were on the verge of being euthanized. They were among thirty one pit bulls seized by Chatham Kent Police from from a dog fighting operation near Windsor Ontario. Back in two thousand fifteen in the years that followed court battles raged over whether a majority of those dogs should be put down for being too aggressive in the end a lot of them were spared and sent to rescue in Florida. Those five I just named ended up with Carol Stays IAK near Philadelphia. Ms Gays EAC is the founder of the throwaway rollaway dogs project which trains working dogs yesterday. The projects donated nibbles to the craven. County sheriff's Department in New Bern North Carolina an earlier this week Hansel had his first day of work as an arson detecting canine in New Jersey. This morning Carol Stacey I spoke with the CBS's Tony do set about why that is such an important milestone. We are just so overjoyed that hustle is The first arson detection canine pit. Bull I I do believe in the United States. He's a wonderful friendly loving dog. That just wants to please his handler. How unusual is it for the pit to be working for any police agency in any role? It's starting to become more known at least in the United States there. Definitely we are canine Police dogs that are pit bulls now in the United States. And I'm so excited and happy to see this because we need aide chiefs from police departments from fire departments to see this as an example. And say you know what we want to make a statement also. We want up to save a dog that can help the community. Not every dog can be a police dogs. They have to have certain qualities and traits and there are a lot of pit bulls that that have these these traits in these qualities. They're very easy to train. They are very loyal and they make a perfect law enforcement partner. It it definitely is a no brainer. If as you say this is a no brainer. Why didn't this happen years ago? I'm not sure Tony and that that is part of my initiative now to keep producing The bully breed dogs out in law enforcement and to prove that this absolutely can be done But I also want the other people the other rescues that are out there to see this and to try to do what I am doing. Also there is so many the of them that are misunderstood that need a second chance to be re purposed. What do you think it means to the animals to have a new calling? I have seen these animals. I just want companionship. Just want affection and they just want love. There is no aggression. There is no anger anger. These dogs just WanNa be loved no matter what they have been through. It's like it didn't matter they don't care. It's unconditional and that just makes my heart smile because we really don't know what they have been through. We don't know Carol. is the founder and CEO of the throwaway dogs project project near Philadelphia. She spoke with Tony do set earlier today on. CBC Radio Windsor Morning. The ancient Egyptian priest Nestle Moon is finally getting his dying wish for his voice to live on three thousand years after he fell silent Nelson died in one thousand sixty nine BC but now thanks to a three D. printed replica of his vocal chords for the first time. The world can. Here's a snippet of what the Egyptian priests might have sounded like when he addressed his congregation on spiritual matters. Here we go. It's our sound of the day. nurseryman probably said at other things also like words but from a scientific standpoint that was impressive. British scientists were able to reproduce that single syllable using the mummies vocal local tract the mouth throat and nasal cavity. That gives us all our unique voices. The research team determined that synthesized sound falls between the vowels in bad and bad and that sound might be explained by the fact that nephew died with his tongue. Sticking out possibly because of an allergic reaction to an insect bite so Nelson may have been a great orator. But you'll have to use your imagination because three millennia later kind of Is it just me or has it been another long week so so together. Let's clear our heads banging our heads to this instant classic cover of a classic rock classic. The smell really gets the blood flowing right. Yeah that's thunderstruck by. ACDC performed by a one man band a one small Maughan band a one. It's a one baby band. And the baby's name is Ryan Macmillan. His Father Matt McMillan went to great lengths weirdly great lengths to turn turn his tiny sons Gurgling babbling. Sneezing and chortling into thunderstruck. Were impressed and were a little worried about him. So we called up Matt mcmillen In del Iran New Jersey. I fell what compelled you to think you can make music with only the sounds at your baby makes So when my daughter was born about three years ago she would kind of sing songs to herself and as I was listening to it. That's kind of where I got the idea to actually record her and take little clips of her sounds and compose them into a song so then about a year ago. When my when my son Ryan was born I from the get-go had the idea to make a song got it so basically every sound that he made I would whip out my phone start recording So that I would have all the sounds to compose into a song. Did you decide the beginning beginning that you were going to do. Thunderstruck did it just did that inspiration. Come as you listen to your your little boy. Play his make his sounds. The inspiration came later after I had a couple of songs that I had in mind. But based on the notes that he basically gave me and the fact that his the sounds he made were so short they really lent itself self to thunderstruck because that that Short Staccato intro. Thunderstruck has okay so then notes your son gave you where. How did he give you the notes outs? So basically I after I- sifted through a couple of hours of footage I cut down basically each clip of where he was either making the noise like sneezing or burping or hitting something or making kind of like a musical tone So after we those out I had eighty three notes that basically we had a tone in them and then I sorted them by sending pitch just kind of ordering them up And then what I did was basically figure out the note of each clip by playing the note and then playing the keys on a piano to try to match. How many how many keys you have in your keyboard your baby Ryan Keyboard so He out of the eighty three. We know sort of repeats so he basically provided me with twenty one individual keyboard not okay and so the same time he gave you some percussion. How did he give you that? Yeah so Anytime he was sneezing or banging on something or shaking a rattle Recording it so for thunderstruck. I used just a sneeze as the symbols He was hitting the SOFA. I use that as a bass drum. 'cause it's got a nice kick to it. And then there was one where he was banging on the floor and I use that for the snare trump. Okay how much time did you spend putting all this together. A it was a long one I spend probably about eighty hours total On this over the course of about three months and and right away again again figuring out. Did you had what you had needed for thunderstruck acquis. Is Anything missing in your composition. No that was the nice part about thunderstruck actually fell in line with all the notes I had. I didn't need to like tweak. The pitch of any of his notes so basically everything he provided me with Ahead available for thunderstruck. Maybe there are some inspiration. Maybe Ryan knew what he's doing this movie. Maybe it's really about as you sign the notes and we can see how you're playing it but the video that you've made as well you get to see how Ryan changes. It's it's really fun. She's a one year. You realize how much a baby actually changes absolutely. And so what are you going to do with that Yeah I'm not sure. Or what are we going to do from here. The hard part was basically determining all the notes and now that I have those notes There's a couple more songs I have in mind let songs. I'm currently in the process. Just seeing if I have all the notes to put together at least part of Bahamian rhapsody or something with a lot of good harmonies and melodies with Ryan sounds. Yes so he gave me all of one octave and then a couple of notes of two other actors so I do have enough to do some harmonies there. What is the rest of your families because it's funny we were fortunate to have good sleeper? So we actually put them to bed around seven thirty so we have a couple of hours and me and my wife to ourselves So I would edit video kind between seven thirty and nine and there were multiple times where she would come upstairs. Thinking one of the kids were crying. But it's actually just the baby. Sounds coming from the computer it did. She like question your sanity at any point. She yes so she As I'm figuring out these notes I'm writing them all down on post two notes basically so I can assign nine each clip with the note that it is And my wife comes and picks what picks one of them up and says what what is this and tried to explain to her. That like a matching your son's baby noises to notice and she was trying to wrap your mind around it but she thinks I'm crazy. Well now you have a full complement of all his every the single gurgle and and and sigh and cry and I word so that is is on. And what do you think that Ryan nine will think when he's older and you show thank you. I hope he likes it He's definitely getting a lot of attention now whether he whether he likes it or not. I'm sure he doesn't really know. Oh about it but Yeah I'm hoping enjoy once. He's old enough to actually realize what it is. It is actually a symbol that something for him. Now it's great to tactic. Thank you thanks for having me back. Matt mcmillen spent a year compiling videos of his baby Ryan and then turning those videos into a video called baby. Maybe Ryan Stinks Thunderstruck. We reached Mr Macmillan. Del Ran New Jersey. And if you want to see that video and you do had to our website. CBC DOT CA SLASH AI h If a headline is posed as a question is the answer ever yes. The answer is no that is known as beverages law of headlines because of an article oh by a British tech reporter named Ian Beverage in two thousand nine writing about some buddies dubious reporting. He said this story is a great demonstration of my maxim that any headline which ends in a question mark can be answered by the word. No he added the reason why journalists use that style of headline is that they know the story he is probably BS and don't actually have the sources and facts to back it up but still wanna run it with that in mind consider these headlines from the last couple of days was big foot caught on Washington highway camera is that sasquatch on Sherman pass and whereas sauce garage in the snowy mountains thousands of Washington state officials say. The gist is that the Washington State Department of Transportation tweeted photos from its Webcam near Sherman. Pass about forty the kilometers south of the border in one photo. There's something big and dark next to a tree and in another that big dark thing is revealed to be a big dark humanoid humanoid figure striding away from the road now by my count at least sixteen different news outlets had question mark headlines about this story all variations nations on. Even though this isn't bigfoot is this big foot while no no it isn't we don't know who it is but it is not bigfoot. But but when you want to run a story you know as Hogwash. You have to watch your language or SAAS watching. They had had an agreement for thirty four years but now Ryerson University in Toronto is cutting ties with the Ryerson students. Union saying it's lost confidence in the school student government. The split comes after the union faced allegations of misspending last January an investigation by Ryerson Student newspaper. The eye opener revealed that members of the Union may have racked up roughly two hundred and fifty thousand dollars in credit card charges in under a year. The alleged spending include purchases at Ontario liquor stores nightclubs and casinos after the allegations were made public former student. Union President Ram Ganesh was impeached forensic audit was completed and just days ago. The students wants Union asked Toronto Police to investigate the alleged financial mismanagement back when that story broke Carol spoke with Sharia Harris who was part of the team that I reported on the Oh scandal from our archives. Here's part of their conversation. She we in a has the student union at Ryerson provided an explanation as of yet for how much money could have been spent on what what appears to be spent on booze nightclubs and casinos among other things. No they haven't the eye opener has given the student even multiple opportunities to comment and as well at the board of directors meeting last week several representatives asked the president directly to explain and some of the expenses and he repeatedly said that he would be able to provide a full explanation and context once the Receipts were reconciled on February first but there were no explanations given up the meeting. How did you learn about this? How did you learn that? The student union president might be spending this kind of money so we had received some tips from people as early as this fall that we should be looking into the credit card statements and we should be looking into some of their finances but at that time we weren't able to verify the information just because it was screen chalked up their online bank account.

Explain just two of them do that. You will win are prize. The voice of anyone you might choose for your voicemail. Are you ready to play is ready? So I'm gonna be alright. Your I quote is from a letter sent by the president this week. Obviously if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial that would certainly be your daddy. That was a letter from President Trump telling someone he was cancelling her trip overseas. Sorry whose trip net people. Yes. Speaker Pelosi very good. Thought things couldn't get any nastier in Washington. The beef between the president and the speaker of the house went from constitutional confrontation to real housewives of Pennsylvania Avenue. First speaker Pelosi let the president know that with the government shutdown. Maybe he shouldn't deliver the state of the union address as scheduled. It was a political equivalent of thanks for asking me out. But I'll be washing my hair every night until the sun explodes. Is it a little romantic though? It's like, I don't know. It's a little bit like, Tracy and Hepburn. The way the two of them are going at each other. It's nothing like good, really. After. Thinking version, those people had charm, and charisma ability. I said it's the opposite of tracing burns. Well, it it would be fun except it's real. This is the president and the speaker at a house having little spat. That's affecting you know, what I mean. It's like, it's a real thing. Like, I fly all the time. And there are certain TSA employees that have this kind of like angry old school grandmother vibe. Yeah, we need to send her to the White House. Probably just smack some by. I'm getting paid. Yeah. You should be getting paid. Would she leaves should be getting paid on that? We we have to mention only because we thought this is going to be the craziest thing that happened this week the dinner that President Trump through for the Clemson Tigers football team. You may remember this. It was a year ago on Monday. As you know, or as President Trump told us because the government shutdown closed, the White House mess he out of the goodness of his own heart decided to pay for dinner himself. So he made this amazing wonderful fast food feast and the Washington Post in careful analysis decided it cost him about three thousand dollars. That's half his net worth. Although we did see. Okay. Peter his dad paid for. It's true. Probably. I don't want to disparage fast food because I a McDonald's. French fry a hot fresh McDonald's. French fry is a revelation, but like a four hour old MacDonald French fry I tried to offer that wants to a foster dog. And he was like just take me back to the pound lady. Entirely possible. By the way, that this whole thing was a scam. He just ordered it for himself, and he got caught. And he's like, oh, yes. You're you're next quote is from the floor of the house of parliament in the United Kingdom this week. Order order. That was just a little bit chaos. Reined in London as British politicians voted against the plan to do what? That would be exit birth. Yes. Brexit brexit. Going to happen. It's going to be terrible. It's incredibly complicated. Imagine it this way. You have a mommy and daddy who love each other very much, but they decide they'd like to live apart and then daddy sets himself on fire. Britain is like blowing up there destroying their own economy. They can't figure out how to do it. They can't figure out how not to do it. They're in crisis. They'll hate each other. It's a disaster. But on the other hand, it's kind of sweet that the US in the United Kingdom are going through horrible times. Together, we've been allies for two hundred years and now we're all falling apart. It's like when women hang out a lot and their cycles coordinate. You know, it really is. So like, you said Peter who would have guessed that the United States and Britain would get into who's worst. Come. Oh, you think you're leaders bad? Oh, yeah. Well, watch out. Well, we don't even want ours. Well, we'd never wanted. I mean, this is it is incredible. What's going? I wonder if they've talked to each other and been like, well, Trump would be like, you know, I'm winning. They hate me more. They they hate me tremendously. It's the most hate anyone's ever had in history. Can I say, I actually I got it. Now, I think that Donald Trump Nancy Pelosi are like Bruce Willis and civil shepherd in moonlighting. Okay. Thoroughly Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor and who's afraid of Virginia Woolf. I'll give you maybe bores into tasha. Sit in Nancy. All right. We got one more quote for you here. It is. I like to tidy up the entire planet. That's a quote from the host of a new Netflix show. That is everybody throwing everything out. Who is it? Oh my gosh. I know the name of I've I've seen commercials for it. But I cannot remember that that the name. Okay. So last name, it's not a co-op and her for like some last name Antoinette first name Marie. Okay. And last name. Buying an apartment. It's you're not buying a house. How good Mary Ren? Yeah. One. The author of the book the life changing magic of tidying up. Marie condo. If you haven't seen her. She's this tiny constantly smiling. Japanese woman who says you should get rid of any possession that doesn't spark joy? And what does that mean? She likens this feeling to what happens when you hold a puppy. So listen puppies of America. Stay on top of the game. Because one more accident, we're lovingly placing you done. Listen. This woman is a cult leader. She she the whole sparks joy thing that goes for your family members for your spouse's, right? How many spouses would be dropped off? Armie just like I'm not getting the puppy field. She has this weird sort of theory of emotional relationships to your possessions, for example. This is true. When you decide to throw something out because it no longer sparked joy, you have to thank it for its service to you say, for example. Thank you dress for making me feel pretty at the prom. And thank you for letting me know how fat I am today. Peter, I hate to say this. But this is why black people laugh at wipe you. You sit you watch a TV show. And it's like, yeah, I'm a throw away. Everything I have trust me. Black people like throw it over here. Sadi's is not sparking joy. You know, what I mean like you guys need to stop. Bill. How did Sam he worked so hard number three? But he was already a winner with two out of threes. By that. Right. Oh panel. It is time for you to answer some questions about this week's news. Helen, Costco, has announced that they've sold out nationwide of their new product that was all the rage this week at twenty seven pound bucket of what at twenty seven pound. Can I have a hint craft was very very jealous of what they were able to do a bucket of cheese? Bucket of what end cheese MAC and cheese, MAC and cheese. Twenty seven pound macaroni. In a single industrial size bucket. If you like your food like your like your wall spackle. And head to Costco. It's an eighty nine dollar twenty seven pound bucket of macaroni and cheese with the shelf life of twenty years. But if you are the kind of person who wants this no way, are you living that long? It's so it's not cooked back and cheese. It's dry. Apparent macaroni is dry early shelf, stable macaroni and cheese that you can just scoop out. Awesome. Yeah. I hate the fact that I knew that. But you gotta think that the the guys who had the fast food at the White House or like, well, it could have been worse. Coming up our panelists do their part for mother earth. The two of them are lying about it. If loved to listed a game called one triple eight great way to play. We'll be back in a minute with more weight dumbing from NPR.

I understand there's sort of a political transformation going on that the case not a car. Well, Rebecca, it's great to have you with us. You're gonna play our game in which you must try to tell truth from fiction Bill. What is Rebecca's topic? You have a hoot don't pollute cut. You. According to the latest data the earth will be uninhabitable in about twenty five years, but that hasn't stopped people from trying to make things better this week. We read about a surprising effort to heal the planet pick the real one you'll win our prize. The wait wait voice of your choice on your voicemail ready to fly. First let's hear from Alonzo boat. We've all heard stories of soccer hooligans drinking fighting and rioting before the game at the game. After the game on their way to the game on the way, home from the gang. The game is just a brief intermission from there. Right. Well, now to prove they're not bad people, just overly passionate hooligans have come together to clean the streets around there arenas, the day after a match and the accompanying riot soccer fans are coming down to pick up litter beer cans, broken bottles. You name it. According to euro, sport magazine, even become competitive at it. Arthur Simeon, a huge Barscelona and messy fan says. Yes, sometimes we get out of control. But if we play Saturday, we're out here cleaning Sunday, we weigh our recyclables and compare amounts to other clubs around Europe to see who cleans up best. I just wanna know we've out cleaned, Portugal and Rinaldo, Danny O'Brien. What for Fance's? Yeah. It's a gig to get out here and see what we've done the day after a win the cleanup's got people who don't even know football, hoping we went makes the neighborhood nicer who knows maybe it'll catch on even in the states, we've seen how you Yanks are after a championship. I guess it doesn't even take a championship. The raiders may not play proper football. But those fans are proper hooligans. Football in Europe during their part. Both before and after their riots your next story of someone working to be environmentally conscious comes from Helen Hong drug dealers. Have a lot to worry about getting rated by the cops of course, getting murdered by ruthless drug cartels. Sure, sure. But also climate change is real you guys saving the environment has become such a concern for cocaine dealers in Birmingham England that they've stopped selling the white powder in ziplock Baggies, and I've started using reusable pods. The practice though woke is confusing their customers who frankly just wanna get high. I was given a gram of cocaine in this plastic thing and Medina said they were not serving in plastic ziplock bags or reps any mall. One confused coke. Fiend told metro dot UK. He said could bring it back. If I wanted to would refill it and that it would be for the environment. Biodegradable paper straws for snorting are sold. Separately. Cocaine dealers in Great Britain getting with the environment by using. By using reviews containers for their coq your last story, but surprising attempt to make the world. A better place comes from. Oh, Raka Maryland hill is a flight attendant. She lives in Cincinnati, Ohio and she works for sun country airlines and on sun country airlines, they serve bananas a lot and Maryland really hates touching banana peels. And so she wears gloves. So that she doesn't have to touch them. But sun country has a small budget for gloves. And so sometimes she's ended up having to handle the slimy. Banana peels and she gets upset he's huge environmental hazard, just Dan appeals everywhere. And so she was so frustrated she started making a Bloody Mary on the plane, and she cut her hand she was very upset about. And then she she just impulsively took one of the banana peels and wrapped it around her hand and magically healed the wound in her hand. And what's more? More. She was the flight attendant on the flight the regular flight from Cincinnati Macau. And when she got to Macau, she usually has jet lag. But she found that the potassium from the banana peel filtered into her system, and she no longer had jetlag. So she discovered these amazing medical properties of banana peels in. So she sold at Merck. This this Merck paid her huge amounts of money. And with that money. She has now up the budget for some countries gloves. So no flight attendant ever needs to touch banana peel again. I think I've grasped this. These are your choices from Alonzo Boden soccer hooligans doing their part to clean up the grounds where they have rioted or might riot from Helen Hong cocaine dealers in Great Britain deciding to use reusable pods instead of environmentally wasteful plastic Baggies and for more Raka. Tale this time. To flight attendant discovers that banana peels can be used for their health benefits, thereby preventing them from being disposed as waste. Exactly. Thank you. None of these are super compelling. I'm gonna go with Lonzo on the soccer. Again, you're going to soccer. And again bulletins are running around and cleaning up the places where they riot. Because that's how they are. Well, we spoke to somebody who knew something about the real story one of the usage and one day. And we'd actually the dealer who said. The environment. If he could return this refill it. I'm sure you thought that was still Helen talking. Raising Lee accurate accents. In fact, it was hell in story that was that was James Roger head of trends at Birmingham live talking to us about the environmentally woke cocaine dealers that so I'm sorry. You were fooled by Alonzo's, very very nice story. But you have earned a point at least for him. So thanks playing. And now the game where we ask people who've done a lot and been everywhere about something. They avoided the whole time. It's called not my job back in nineteen Ninety-three David Letterman left his job hosting late night. And then B C to replace him. The network picked to completely unknown comedy writer who almost never appeared on camera before. And now Conan O'Brien host of Conan on TBS has the longest tenure of anyone in late night. He joins us now Conan O'Brien. Welcome to wait. Wait, don't tell me. Thank you very much. Everyone tweet that too much applause. Thank you. I have heard varying versions of your Arjun story as a late night host one of them being that you were just somebody in the Simpsons writers room said Conan. He's funny and charming. Let's give him a show other versions that you addition for what's the truth. The truth is that I had it was really my association with live. I was a young writer at out live, and I was the writer that was kind of known to sort of perform my sketches for the other writers and perform them for people and get them laughing. I think Lorne Michaels notice that I left out live. I went onto the Simpsons. And I worked there for about a year and a half two years when Lorne Michaels was charged with who's the new guy is gonna replace Letterman. And he said, you know, there's this guy Conan he's got something, and they looked into it. And it turns out I really didn't have anything. But I told them and here we are all these years later. It must have been crazy. Those first years because you weren't a stand up. You didn't have a following performer. And you were thrown you're going to be a national television where you scared or you're nervous were you excited deluded? And I I want to advise your audience that there's nothing like delusion. There's nothing like if you think you can't do something convince yourself that you can have a few drinks and go do it. That's I really believed. I could do it. And I was also terrified at the same time. But I think I had a deep seated belief that America needed to see me on there. Belief not really shared by anyone else. Stuck to it? Take conan. It's mohi. How dare you speak to me directly. I forgot you're gonna work. Here's how we're going to work. Your question has to go through Bill Curtis. Bill. Would you ask I heard that a lot of late night show hosts when they get home a lot of times, they can't even remember who was a guest earlier that day the taping doing so many shows you ask them about that, Gordon, can you? Remember, the guests on the show that night? Stupid question. Yes. Funny to most point. No, you do the show, and it becomes your. So in the moment when you're doing it, and I like in the whole experience, and I'm actually not even kidding about this. I think everyone's probably in your audiences familiar with the famous toy the edges sketch where you turn the knobs, you create a picture, you create something, and then you just shake it. And it's gone and you start again every day. I come in. And I learned everything I can that. I need to know for that show. And I learned to the best that I can I can tell you everything about the gas, and I can tell you everything about the comedy the minute. It's over a shake the sketch and all of its gone, and I go home, and I don't know what we did. I've done four thousand hours of rod casting. I'm told nine of it quite good. You have. I I want to get onto what you're doing now, which is really interesting very things. But I. Pornography. Well, that's exciting. Tall enough. Of course, your you would never enter the frame, which would be good for your. I don't lean down critical. Actually, I I couldn't I have met on one occasion. It was right before the White House correspondents dinner, and I have my picture taken with you, which I'm grateful for it. And you did something you crouched instantly without being asked you just sort of crouched? So that you, and I would be in the same frame that you must have to do that one hundred times a day. I who are uninsured dated. I am a lot all our than people think I am. And whenever I go anywhere in the country or the world. All people say to me is good guide your so much bigger than you are on television. And I always say you need a bigger television. And my daughter now has said you need a different line. Well, Conan O'Brien, we are delighted to talk to you. But we've asked you to play a game. We're calling to even cocoa. Meet hot cocoa. Your supporters fans are known as team CoCo. But what do you know about actual cocoa? The tasty beverage everything. Really do. That's a bold statement, sir. There's not a thing. You can ask me about hot cocoa that. I do not know. Well, I'm interested in what's going to happen now because we have in fact with Barrett's three questions for you about hot cocoa answer two of them correctly. You will win our price. One of our listeners the voice of their choice on their voicemail. Are you ready to do this? I was born ready who is Bryan playing for Jason McGee of Raleigh, North Carolina. All right. First question, you think it's just what kids drank instead of coffee but hut? Coco can change your life as it did. For whom a Bernie Madoff who after he was convicted and imprisoned for fraud. Quote, cornered the prison market on Swiss Miss hot chocolate. Be Jeff Bezos whose first internet business was delivering steaming cups of hot chocolate to people suffering through the Seattle winter or see Eric McMillan who was inspired to invent the kids ballpit by looking at many marshmallows floating in his hot chocolate. Eric McMillan, very calm. Peter, I'm gonna say this one more time. It was actually a was Bernie Madoff. I'd like to contest. No, Jeff, apparently, a born traitor is born trader apparently made made very well from self in prison with the Swiss Miss hot chocolate. Yeah. I got that one wrong because I believe in our penal reform system. I'm shocked that they would let Bernie Madoff do that. So in a way, I'm counting that answer is correct. People really does your second question. People. Really love cocoa. A lot so much that at one time people were doing what a mixing protein powder into cocoa. So it would be the only thing they'd ever have to eat be snorting lines of cocoa powder like coke or see trying to have transfused into their body instead of blood is be snorting cocaine. Well cocoa as cocaine. Their old habits hard. The answer is B snorting. Coco right. Coco. Snorting talk about was camping by Belgian chocolate here who invented a little device that would shoot cocoa powder into your nose engineer. And I've worked with him. Have you tried this coke? I I have. It's fantastic. There's an incredible high. Latch for about twenty minutes. And then you you have to cough out the marshmallows. Wonderful experience. When you wake up you wearing German shorts. I don't know. All right last question. You can get this right for chocolate lovers. There's a pill created by a French scientist, which for thirteen dollars a bottle will do what a make anything you eat including meat tastes, like chocolate be make your farts, smell like chocolate or see it gives you chocolate dandruff instead of dry skin, you shed chocolate flakes. The answer is your answer is a that. It makes anything you eat. Wait like chocolate. So you'd be sitting there eating say prime rib. Yes. Chocolate chocolate chocolate. It's b. I'm sorry. But yes, the idea is a little pill, and you take it. And if you take it your smell like, Chuck, there's also a strawberry option. I didn't go for that. Because it scatalogical. I don't work blue. I didn't realize this was that kind of show. But I guess it's all about farts now. We've you and I hope you're proud of yourself. Phil Conan O'Brien do on our show.

So I'll I'll get into that in a minute but I need your help to figure that out. We'll talk to Angelina high. Hi Angelina Ulloa. We're talking about not big huge fights but little skirmishes. What your boyfriend going through okay? So last night My boyfriend and I we fall asleep on facetime every night and he has this dog that I thought thought was a German shepherd I was like. Oh you have a cute little that bird and then he goes Enzi my boy I mean. Sorry my dog's not a German shepherd and we got into a dog is it. What kind of dog Angelina clearly? It's so relevant that I forgot the breed that he told me he wants. So so he's saying so but in your opinion his dog looks just like a German shepherd. Yes and that's what I thought it was for the entire year that we were dating and I told everybody that I knew my has cute adorable German shepherd. Look at this picture and people were like. Oh so I guess they knew wasn't a German shepherd. Hi there and I kinda just looked a little bit. Let's be honest here. There are many breeds that look resembled a German shepherd. You could've. That's an honest mistake but now you feel like a fool going on an entire year talking about this guy's German shepherd and it never was gonNA fight over this. We we got into fight. He whoa there. Were Google pictures involved. There was a little attitude and we actually both went to pick mad about it. What was his argument but trying to explain? Explain to you that it's not a German shepherd. He said that their German shepherds have the You know the Brown the Brownish for which has but it's not like I don't actually that fuzzy like you know what I mean. What's his argument though? Why is he? He's upset because you refuse to give in. I don't I don't understand. Oh turn to see why you mad at you. I'm starting to see why he's here because you're making no sense use. It's a German shepherd he says. No it's not. So why is he mad at you mainly because I thought his dog quizzes German Shaw. That's not fair but the proof is like right there on the computer. There's nothing look it up a little bit silly reason to be mad at you. Do you guys fix that today. Fix that I can give you a million and one reasons to fight in. This is not one of them. Hold on now. They think maybe maybe he thinks he insulted his doll. I don't know what Hello Kira. Hi Good Morning please tell me I can understand what argument you're going through with. There's no argument with my husband. Recently just purchased a house We're in contract so we officially don't even have the house yet so we were talking about kitchen floor. The other night he comes with this idea of having all different Tiles and divorce and I was like I really like more of a clean cut. Because it's more of an open concept. Why want more of the same floor to kind of go throughout the entire first level and we have two different versions of how this went down but I recall him Kinda storming out of the room after and and being a little upset that I shut down his idea but Yes that's currently what we're fighting over right now. I fell waiting so waiting to want to get back in the house because honestly I don't even remember the layout of the kitchen and what it even looks like. So let's look at these stupid little arguments. I mean look. It's one thing into disagrees and other things to storm out because you've been shut down about the floor tiles that he did not but that's what I recall working. Oh yeah so. We disagreed to just wait until we got inside and figuring because there was a moment of tension over something like floor tile the correct because we all go through these little stupid argument. Yeah what about Yours Gandhi. We have been arguing about. What is an appropriate appropriate distance to walk verse? Take an uber or take the subway because he says I tortured him and I make him walk too far and he's not built for the cold and he just can't do it so tough it up buttercup a well. How does that distance in his opinion and he's opinion it's like three blocks any more than three blocks? We gotta get it on the subway or taking newburgh. Because you're killing me. That's silly get a coat. Why are you walking around with Your Co.? Oh man up a little bit and you can do this no. I don't live in New York City. This isn't for me. I think. Anything of three blocks or fours Takeda. Walk that he thinks five minutes is the Max so if I then I started to say oh it's five minutes away and he's like you're lying to me. It's not five fifteen I know it. Wow okay so I see I see your side title nine. I don't see his anyone else. Having one might also relates to walking in New York City so on Saturday night we went out and Heather wore her highest heels school and so she said well. I can't walk. We have to park close to the theater. Salihi shoes and I get it. I get it. However there was evidence slater the night that that was not a problem to be high heels because she danced for four hours straight right because she had been drinking well?

Well we see what's going on here. Apparently I agree. She should clean up the mess. She's the one that tractable the house right but she said something. You never helped me around here that that shows. There's a deeper issue there. What about us? Gary girlfriend sits on my floor or in my bedroom opens up a Sephora and two hours doing her hair and make just to go out on a Sunday afternoon. We're only going out for a quick lunch and back again again. You don't need to be so so intricate in your planning really up. And but that's what she wants to do but she looks beautiful the way she but she she wants to do you know now you look. Pippen argues predate. That argument is is really a silent argument so my husband puts the toilet covered down on the toilet. He thinks it looks much nicer and he tries to get everyone in the house to do it. So now there's a big note of of the toilet. 'cause I keep forgetting that says put toilet cover cover down and I'm just like okay. Yeah whatever the smallest little thing so I know the note is there but I haven't addressed the no like I haven't said to him. Yeah I know Oh the notes that I haven't seen you know. Do you know it's simmering. It's gonNA come to boil. Oh now there's there's going to be the thing thrown. Yeah it was going to make that toilet seat right. Sharp objects wrote in twenty six. We'll be ripped off because he's British that he likes to put all the bowl seats. I gotta be honest. I have a weird thing about toilets being seen outside the bathroom. Yeah for instance. Ah In my in my apartment. There's in the entryway there's A. There's a half bath. Wash your hands in the washroom whenever I always always had to make sure that door is mostly closed. I don't want people walking into my house in the first twenty now the thing is it is nice to have it down. Yeah you don't see that suck hole in the bombing not much nicer. It doesn't look like a public toilet before Daniels report. Let me tell you what my argument is with Alex. We have this. What used to be a farm? Okay Lot acreage and a house. Whatever it's just land that's sitting there okay? Beautiful and New Jersey the garden state. They can grow tomatoes out there but I said why don't we do this. Why don't we have some people come out and build gardens out there so we can grow vegetables we can grow produce? We can grow Flowers whenever we want. He's like well we don't need needed. I said we'll get a little and share with friends by what we can do is take that produce and we can donate it to food shelters and people who need it. Yeah and it'll be it'll be cool to have a garden. The he's like it's a Lotta work said. No not if we don't do it we'll have people know how to know how to garden. Come out and run the guard. He said that's a lot of money but look we're helping the community. I'm sure there's a tax write off in there somewhere so I looked it up. Yes there is so if we could just grow vegetables no this is a waste of time waste of money and it is a lot of work for someone that we have to pay But look we could be helping people. People have a garden fresh vegetables. Fresh vegetables the honest. We'd have like three green beans a year but that's okay. Let's go on to people who need it. Yeah all right. So where would you fall on that keep in mind is there is an expense there. Yeah what can you meet in the middle and and kind of learn how to take care of it yourself. No okay I gotta say. I think I'm on your side with this one. I like the gardens. I think it will be great to be able to help people out. I think that's awesome. And if you can pay for it you can pay and then it's no extra work. So what does it matter. Okay thank you okay it it. It's at your schedule right. So it's not like you guys are going to be barbecuing in. Somebody's bracket up truck and loading it with the tomatoes or anything like that. No no okay. I think you're fine. You're totally fine. My brother gross stuff in his backyard. He grows it. Yeah we're talking about people coming out to do it but he would have people do it if you could afford it. So but why don't you. Why don't you use it as like a new hobby and learn how to do it now? Where you guys can do it together? It would be something you guys would kind of grow together because dirty. Yeah I'm a job creator. Okay can I make some suggestions. About what plants you should grow your. We'll grow pot donate that though with the To a pharmaceutical people glaucoma US inside anyway. Anyway what's that scary. I'm wall in. I think this is a unique. And charitable idea at the same time you're going green. What's Alex is issue with this? There you go there you go. I like that the garden. Alex headed an opportunity to call in. But he's too busy this morning. But and I get that but I don't know all right here comes the guards. Yeah I'M GONNA call it. Elvis Alex Elvis Victory Garden and then when the Zombie apocalypse comes you're gonNA have all the fruits and vegetables will stay. With you so excited I can see citrus orchards. As far as I can see vineyards it'd be the garden of eating. Call it that scary great. Yeah all right. Let's get into the Daniel Report Daniel all right. So there is a lot overalls garden. There's obviously really a lot of Kobe news sources saying that Kobe and his wife. Vanessa had an agreement that they've never fly in a helicopter together presumably so that their family would be taken in care of if something happens. Also there's an online petition asking the NBA to honor Kobe by making him the new logo and he never played to the Dallas Mavericks. But they're actually going going to retire. His number twenty four anyway and Nike has decided to remove all koby merchandise including sneakers and t shirts from Nike Dot Com. So if you go on their new search on the website you get directed to a statement on Kobe's legacy because they don't want people just taking the merchandising selling it for outrageous prices and taking advantage they all were supposed to release the latest. Kobe shoes on February seven. Th they're trying to figure out what to do because they don't want to look like they're actually trying to cash in on everything so we'll see what happens. Life is good a new collaboration between drake and his future debuts on the hot one hundred at number two this effort is now drake's one hundred top forty. Be on the hot one.

So I figured one of you in here would like a tasty. Vanilla frosted donuts. It looks really good. It's really good. I'll be honest.

Me Like really was good so last night I will tell you we have something going on on our family family. My mom in Law Barbara. She she. She took a fall in the house and she had to go to the hospital and have some have have a lot done. And I'm not going to get into the details but Alex rotter home and she's safe and sound and she's in great spirits. Everything's good and she's fine. She's going to be fine. Thank God so last night. He he Prompts her up on our couch and she looks like she's in She's she's beaten up here okay she she. She had a rough a rough go of it but she looks great in our talk to her. She's in great spirits and I know it's all good so he puts on the couch and he puts her feet up and she's leaning back with all these pillows around her and and I read his tax. There was a picture of Barbara. They're on the couch. See that Yep and then he says I tucked mom on the couch. Ah what I picked the phone up off the floor. I'm like Oh talked. I talked mom on the couch was like Oh my God I would not be too good not even in the realm of possibilities. But I'm just saying it's you gotta read things several times as-as sometimes it's better to to do do a book on audible rather than read it because you're going to read the wrong word sometimes. Don't trust your brain going back in reading the old classics like I told you. I'm reading how to win friends and influence people by Dell Carnegie. It's a book I've read every other year since I was a little kid. So I'm in the middle of that now. It's going really well. There's another book that came out like twenty five years ago called the artist's artist's way. Did you guys ever read their unbelievable. That's my next book okay. I'm going back and reading old school books that make you feel good about life. Oh that's good. Two Thousand Twenty just hasn't taken off bumpy start. Zooming want to help me with has been rough. Yeah Yeah I mean obviously all the things going on in the news listen politics and everything I mean trying wildfires. It's just been a long long twenty eight days. I got good news. We can blame it on. January January's arm almost over rate. I mean we only have a couple more days. Yeah don't January. Here's the thing. The thing thing is from all this stuff we've gone through. What did we learn from it? So let's look at January. I know this is kind of a like a Katy huckleberry way of looking at things but what do we learn. I'm from all the stuff. We went through January. But what are the lessons. Don't forget that don't write everything off his tragedy and move on no everything. There's a lesson in everything that happens to it. I think that's the only way to get through. It is to really find something that you can take from. And not just think. Oh my God all these horrible things have happened for no reason whatsoever. Something from it you'll get something out out of it. Don't let it be a negative blip on your radar. What's that name? The article you sent us yesterday was incredible to I read that the traits of highly confident people. I've we've got like seven of them. Of course to do surprise you don't have eight eight close very close because I was reading logo. You need to work on that. Yeah me too. There's nothing wrong with needing to work on it. No I'm saying he says he doesn't need to work on it he's confident. I'm confident that I'm pretty confident. The the trump didn't change much there again. It's called the eight tray of highly competent people by Michael Thompson. We live in a few minutes. I would love that. I thought it was great. Because it's not just about like being confident about how you look. It's actually being confident with your mind about how you operate as well. Well it's true it's true. Maybe it's a revision. We would something we need. I'll go through but you may think you have all those traits. You you think you have. You may be a denial. So is that false confidence tonight. We'll get into that the narcissist let us know they'll tell you we'll tell you what we'll tell you what your problems are looks at you. Who says you know what your problem is immediately? Shut them down like I don't have problems. You're my problem right now. Where the problem into the three things you need to know from Gandhi Gandhi? What's going on the impeachment? Trial of President Trump resumes today with his defense team. Taking the spotlight most likely arguing. Why witness testimony is not needed? The trial is set to pick back up at one. PM Eastern this has been driving me nuts since yesterday. I don't know if you guys have seen it or not but there is some disturbing video circulating online that claims to be actual footage of the deadly helicopter crash that belives nine people including Kobe. Bryant Watch that I do not know. I don't know why so many people felt the need to send it to me. Also it's not real. It is a real helicopter crash. It's not his helicopter crash and it's just awful awful. That people are putting this out there because regardless of whether it was him or not there were victims in that helicopter. And that's just not something that needs to be circulated if you see it don't spread it. It is not him with something like this in the story going on. You do see the bad people for some reason. There's so many things that I've been like. I don't think I can follow this person or really look at them the same after this anymore. Awards just very strange and finally there could be a space crash tomorrow over Pittsburgh but no need to worry. There's potential that two satellites collide that have been up there for a while according according to a space debris tracker the chances are about one in one hundred no threats earth but they're saying that the debris from this collision could shoot out into space and pose a risk to other satellites in orbit.

She's like you know what maybe you should just call up mess with them Marine General. He's sitting at the front desk just like you know play with them a little bit and and see what you can come up with. So that's what I did all right. Let's see what Daniel does interesting that Neri Clinton hello. Hello Hi hi I need some help. It sounds like your coffee. I can't hear you a okay. Yeah I swallowed a bug. It's it's it's in my throat and it's tickling me and I love animals and I feel terrible. So did your dog swallowed all of this mugger with your cat type of animals. You know it was me I swell right in my throat and I can't get it out. It's tickling me and I I don't WANNA swallow it. I'm afraid I'm going to totally kill it and you WanNa just like coughing up like that. There's something I can't it won't come out. It was pretty big big and it had clear wings. Okay maybe open your mouth and have somebody smack you on the back and be able to fly out or something like that. Yeah no it's lodged in. I don't think that's going to work. Do you think it would come out in my pope. If I went to the bathroom and your Boob in my bowel movement on Ma'am now I want to be honest with you. I'm not a doctor. I am a receptionist. I talked to one of the veterinary clinic. There because maybe they can help me now because you have to make an appointment. We only see animals. Unless you're I've eaten an animal I've eaten technically I have the animal in me. Okay well then you need the animal to pay the money so you need to cough up the bugs and have the animals call me up and give me their insurance or pay with the credit cards. I can't have you do it. It's gotta come from your wings friends. I'm sorry it's just how it is. Is it possible that the but could be pregnant. And then it's going to have a little bugs inside Jimmy a favor what you just hold on one second okay. One second. I'll be right back. Okay we on Hello this is Dr. I was just talking to you about the bug situation Newark down. I'm sorry you're actually thought you were actually talking to Michael Workers. Have you tried. Drinking water may be working. I can feel the Vlad slap slap slap. I think the win. Okay Ma'am I think what you're gonNA need to do is go to a doctor or maybe even an urgent care. I think he's trying to climb out of my throat. He's a fighter later. This guy out. Then that's great. Maybe if you go to the walk in clinic they could go to the flashlight and then put out okay. I can't do this rex. Hi this narrow Elvis Duran and the morning show and you guys just got phone tapped we one of your patients patients that goes there wanted us to play a phone tap on what oh my gosh. This is Danielle. Oh my God we listen to you guys. I don't even know what even know where to start school. I stopped because I started laughing and I was so bad. Couldn't choke anymore without really Tokyo. How is it they stay on the phone for so long it's fabulous afflict you off so fast like by? That actually happened to me. One time it was not funny. It was a moth. There was a huge Martha was laughing. Mouth Wide Open flight to the back of my throat and I felt the flap pretty reliable. This is a fighter. This guy all right. Thank you welcome. That was fun for you. have an idea for a phone tap. Someone in your life is very gullible east. Want to surprise them with whatever. We'll put it together. GO TO ELVIS DOT COM and click on the phone tap. All right Dan yeah. Can you do this with the bug and you can't battery so Lebron James is still tr- struggling to try to process everything about Kobe. Bryant step he posted a tribute online yesterday and basically. He says that he's going to promise to continue his legacy. Says you mean so much to all of us here and it's my responsibility to put this on my back and keep it going. So that's what he wants to do. So you guys remember the planters peanuts campaign where the planners Mr Peanut guys supposed to die and then he has a funeral. Well because of Kobe's death they are actually pausing their social media campaign surrounding the tragic death of Mr Peanut but they are still planning to air MR peanuts funeral during the super double okay. I don't mean to laugh but okay. So there's people sitting around the table in Madison Avenue you know. We spent God so far. We've spent like seventeen million dollars on the the killing of Mr Pena right and now of course it's the right thing to do is to pull the commercial. That's that's basically the meetings probably went. Okay there you go very strange. I what because Mr Peanut dies in a fiery explosion on a mountain car. Well no I think we think we understood that but that makes sense though. Yeah Okay Yeah So. Let's talk about human. Even I just brother. He got sentenced to twenty five years to live you for the sexual assault of a child that is in this is crazy and feddie walk will not be prosecuted for allegedly assaulting a woman. So that's what's going on a snoop Dogg. He's got a favorite dish of Martha Stewarts to eat. When he's hi it's baked ham glazed with brown sugar hooker? Cognac donor. No says that old ham you can use it five days later with a piece of bread and it tastes brand new old ham on high. I used to date that old hand. Derek copy he is defending his sister. Julianne after that video went viral. You know that crazy crazy video of her receiving the weird energy healing treatment screaming and everybody was like she's possessed by demons. Well he said. Look my look crazy to you. Maybe it's ahead of its time but it's worth having an open mind and you know what he is right. I mean it is worth having an open mind if it works for her and it's not hurting anybody then let her do you know. Let her due herself that. But you know what I meant interesting. How the unknown always causes immediate fear? Yeah from people. When they don't know something is he's asking L. is game came of games going on tonight? You've got a little Arrow because we're saying goodbye to that. This one hour special cast interviews before the series finale. Then you have the series finale also Daniel Radcliffe Sitcom miracle. Article workers is back tonight on. TBS NCIS and some. This is us. Okay so Michael Thompson wrote this article called the traits of highly competent people full. So I thought it'd be nice to share this with people on the show yesterday just to say you know. Look at an I. I'm not by the way I did hear privately from someone on text. Do you send this to me because I needed to do something better am I no. No I'm saying even I need to improve on these air. It's okay so highly competent people number one. They avoid pressing their own agenda. Yeah and it's kind of tough to do because you live in yourself and you want to press agenda because it would serve you and if you can figure out a way not to do it pretty interesting and we never conversation with someone. It's great to listen to what they have to say. Yes and let's say you may disagree with it but let them say it. Okay number two. How do you confident people pulled? They proactively connect others. We're talking about this the other day just on a simple social level I love introducing my old friends with my new friends and I find out that they may be. They'll they'll do a job with each other although go at our wedding. We had several people. Connect with each other including Bobby Brown is here today. The connecting they connected with other professionally. And they're gonNA start doing projects Drake's together and I was like okay. I'll take credit for that connected them and I don't have to be a part of that. Connection is my point. You know what I'm saying. You should get part of the profit no You're you're the reason I have children because you introduce me and my husband. I don't see offering babysitting service. Insist they come over and mow my long. Now that's true so it's okay to connect other people and then let them let them do their own thing number three confident people. They share their ideas freely. Hey here's an idea. That's a tough one. Yeah I think that's one. I really struggle with because if I have an idea I want it to be my idea and I want to get the credit for the idea and a lot of times especially within this industry you share an idea and it's not yours anymore it gets. It's taken me. At least I have not had an original idea. That's nonsense highly. What are these people? These are people the confidence yet they persevere intelligently probably feel comfortable confident people know what they want and they have the gumption go fight for it even when the odds are stacked against them then again. Plenty of people do that. What separates truly confident from the overconfident is their ability to seek out advice from people with varying points? It's a view they persevered intelligently. So if you WANNA if you WANNA go in there and win the fight do it with the ask your friends asking people around you. Like what can we do to make does work. It's okay you don't have to do it all yourself. People like to do everything themselves. Because they're afraid someone else didn't get credit for it if it takes off please confident. People don't get hung up on things that are outside their control. That's also really tough. What does that old line? I think it's from a God. Give me strength. Yes so you want to look that up. y'All look it up okay. Don't get hung up on things that are outside your control. If there's something you cannot control why are you going to go crazy over it. 'cause you're you can't control it. That's my biggest problem. You've to relinquish control but that's also I think a problem with people who have anxiety because you're always trying to Think about what could happen or if this happens that will happen and sometimes you have a hard time seeing that. You don't have to worry about those things unless they really do happen. True the quotas. God Doc give me the strength. Coach goes slow. God give me the strength to accept the things. I cannot change the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference. Exactly things you can't can't change You gotTa Lean into roller. That doesn't mean you're going to like it. You just have to understand how you're going to respond to it right confident. People their verbal and nonverbal cues lineup. So in other words when you're having a conversation with someone in a meeting or whatever and God knows we all hate meetings but we have to have meetings. Sometimes you don't want listening to what they have to say not shutting them down and maybe not like giving body language like I hate you confident. People understand the importance of this and when you're in their company company you'll not only see that they're being attentive you'll feel they're being attentive the lean into you if you're saying something really important to you confident. People don't seek approval approval from others. Okay well these are things we can all work on our confident. People celebrate the success of others a huge one. It is yes when you see someone smiling because they just accomplish something golden gate go my God good for you. That's excellent. Perhaps the biggest lesson this writer has learned is that while we all have fears and flaws. The key is not letting them get in the way of being you and going after what what you want out of all these traits have competent people straight. Says he has all of. Yeah really. You're missing one. Which one is which WanNa WanNa know which upon listening to him again? I think I have all eight.

Oh actively help other people know so I read this this article and of course I read it several hours after the announcement of Kobe. Bryant passing passing away and these are the qualities that people loved in this guy this titan of basketball and beyond a father Linda a leader. And I think it's great to understand that things that are bad happen to you and they're going to happen. They're going to continue to happen. It's how you react and how you respond to those things is what would make the difference difference I it really. It does make a difference and when you wake up in the morning you choose as you choose your path. I know I come in here some days like a bear shot up on. You chose that path on that list. We're going to publish that list. At Elvis Dot Com giving full credit to the author. Michael Thomson but just think about it. You know when you're interacting with people today.

They were still arguing about champagne gene. How Crazy Ken and get from there? Right well Peter and Victoria went on a one on one date very romantic at Cedar Point Industrial Ohio and then they went to a concert by by Chase rice okay. Now here's the thing. Chase used to date Victoria before the show all they knew she dated chase and when they went into the concert they both had that is of. Oh my God but Peter had no idea until Victoria had to tell Peter this. Wow they really got him on this. Yes all right see this. This is a great a great sign on how they manipulate big time in producing the show sedate and it was in concert. What no I think I think we see I once I know? We edited off with him. His lifestyle doesn't match up to what I want but who cares if they dated. You just met this this guy. He has a past. She has the past who gives a crap big data. They were dating months prior to. Its stope you know what I agree with you really like. Why would I be jealous that you're you're someone you dated before his singing to us gotta just met you? Well I know but they. That's awkward though the guy you just broke up with his singing a love song to you and the guy you're dating right then and there. It's a little awkward dating or the on TV but it's super interesting though. So Chase Chaser chaser. I got the call from the bachelor saying hey wanted to be on the show. It's a big look for you. Ten million people watching you and he said sure so it was about to go on stage. His friend said Hey. I've been following online. This girl Victoria.

Yesterday bieber released his Documentary Justin Bieber seasons twenty minute episodes so easy to get through. There's only leagues that are going to get released But he talked about the challenges of making music. I think what's been challenging over. The years is a lot of times I'd make music and it would be for me when the focus and the goal is about yourself you kind of tend to lose your purpose in that. I think the older that I get the more I realized that I'm not utilizing my gift. I feel for the right reasons. This isn't about me. It's about helping someone who's going through. Whatever whatever's going through being able to talk about that thing? I think that's a really cool way to look at what I do. I want to see this originals.

What's Lena says yes saying she justin bieber relationship? She said she was emotionally. She felt like she was emotionally abused abuse ship right. Yeah but she said that people keep asking her a million questions and that's why she has to continue to talk about this because she really outlays you notice that when we do interviews we never go there now. We don't. You're okay with that right. I mean should we be asking the questions like do you really feel. You're emotionally abused when you were dating. Just the kind of question our show. It asked INC that people feel that this is a safe haven for them and the the reason they keep coming back is because they know that. We're not GONNA do that to her within. Let's continue to do that. Yeah I think you're GonNa find those answers somewhere else but I just. I think we've done the right thing by not going down that road to you know there have been days past when of people who used to work on. The show would go for it without letting US know they're going to go for it. They would ask questions can can I say about the one thing that happened to mention names. Okay so is a book the guests years and years and years ago. So whenever there's a problem with a guest I'd get the phone call. You know your jock said this. Well we called a certain person a Hermaphrodite on the air right before the interview was over the the phone calls that I got after that trying to put the fire out for that one. It was horrible but like you said that's how they used to run the run the show and so it was was it was a problem. So I'm I'm glad you don't have those fires all right all right. Let's go to.

I know that if I make something and I needed and I like it and I wanted other people will also simple and that is the entrepreneurial spirit you look for whether need especially your need you fix it for yourself. You're thinking the other people need this as well all the same and you come up with like defy. The inner thighs look a little bit better but how about I'm working on something called beautiful pop it in your mouth before you go out to eat beat and your full. We'll get better. I love it.

Oh my gosh I walked in here and I was like everyone's so happy and everyone's in these happy relationships like what happened. The Elvis Duran and show that we used to have the rail. Aren't so bobby. Brown is here and we had a lot of people on instagram asking questions. Can we right to it. Ah Bobby what's the best makeup for under dark circles makeup his concealed under under the eyes. But honestly don't eat a lot not a bad stuff before you go to bed. Your water water firm believer in what you put in is GonNa it's like it's like ninety percent of how you look and feel is what you put in your body other other than sunscreen. What else is a must for? Good Skin Care Water hydration and you know hydrate from the inside and the outside I mean moisturizer and face oil is great. Do men need to do something different than women for facial complexion. Good facial complex. They shouldn't put makeup on unless unless it's a little bronze Sir. Can I put on makeup. Because you don't need make up guys are okay to look a little bit you know but a little bit of good a little bronze good yeah What advice do you have for someone who wants to start a cosmetic line? Just do it. Don't think about it just do it do it. Have you found that people who have these great ideas they spend more time. I'm talking about their great idea than doing good idea. One hundred percent one hundred percent you know I mean people call me up and they say I WANNA have my own company and I said that's great go have company. What do you want to? I don't know but I want my own company. I'm like that's great. It makes them. So they're they're thinking they're thinking backwards thinking the right way through. Yes what she said. Ed Bobby Brown said at the beginning of this interview is is the way you do it. You find a need especially if it's your own need in life there's a passion for it because you want to fix it because it's irritating you or something something you need to fix on your own could do it better. I mean that's what being an entrepreneur is but also you can't quit your job and go do this thing you have to do it as a side hustle. 'cause you you got to pay the rent you got to pay the mortgage gotTa Buy Broccoli and then eventually that may become what bite you the Broccoli exactly exactly and it might be a good idea. That might not be a good idea but you gotta try it. Is it true that him royd cream is great for bags under your eyes. That was in vogue in one thousand nine hundred sixty two and I never tried it nor do I think I would ever try it. Read an article the other day speaking of the entrepreneurial spirit these companies that are coming up like worby parker came up with you. Have the men's razor industry you have. Harry is and you have the dollar shave the both sold by the way. Yeah you know these are people who went up against Gillette who has still seventy five or seventy five percent of the market for for shaving in. They undercut them in in the cost to produce and make a better product a better product and Cooler Marketing Cooler. Graphics affix like simpler things I mean our whole retail world is changing like think about all the companies. And think of. You know what you buy like. Have you checked out. branchless yet. Like like brainless three dollars. You can get things that you would buy for three times that much. It's online called brainless I buy you should get Maxi. Some dog treats. They're like like three dollars a bag. I buy in bulk for my girls. See what's going on here. Is People are using online marketing to their advantage. You can find any huge huge behemoth company. That's out there and they've been there since before you were born. Maybe for your parents were born. You can figure out what item you can do. Better than them than didn't start your own company and undercut cut them in market online they. They don't have the ability to move fast left and right because they're so huge and that's a great entrepreneurial little kickstart even though every time I see a pair of the perfect black pants on instagram I buy them and they are not perfect. Terrible now no. They're terrible but they look so good on the instagram persons to on the yeah I am. I am looking for a really good pair of jeans and a really good pair of black pants. 'cause I only want one thing I'm going into total wardrobe mode. I just want really simple things go but I have like twelve or twenty five or thirty pair of jeans and I don't like them. Yeah I want one that I like. This is in in two sizes. Hold on hold on wait. We've answered your question. Bobby Brown started Jean Company. I don't WanNa know know I don't want to be in the business the even though I I could probably make a better bra. Yeah this cream that you gave us Christmas. I'M GONNA sir. I'm going to bring you more. It's crazy Augustinas. Eighteen baiter only expensive stuff. I tell people is worth their money. Talk that I am not sponsored. I'm a friend of the brand I discovered it and I love it. I don't WanNa talk about it. It's expensive. Let's talk expensive bobby. What's this yeah? This is a new CD. Gummy because that is.

THC So it's You you can't sell it in stores isn't that's like it's on. It's on a evolution. Not well no I did you just have to take to. Tamara takes three over there bobby. I'm trying to question. Yes don't do it with my mouth full. Jose no rather than talking about expensive lotion. Chocolate stuff that we can't afford that is just equally as wonderful. Yes well certainly face oil like people with dry skins this time of year. Everyone's so dry. Get A loofah. Get something to really fully eight your skin when your when your body's dry okay. Just go in you know. Go get one of those things. Do Dry brushing. Have you heard of dry brushing. It's good for your lymph system. It's good for your skin and then put oil on and my favorite oil. Is Apricot Kernel oil. And you can get it for about seven bucks that you at whole foods at wherever wherever grocery store olive oil you could use olive oil. It's it's not what the differences Apricot kernels a little bit thicker. So it stays on the skin and it doesn't make you hungry. Olive oil makes you hungry because it's also like a salad now olive oil put. Oil is good for you because a moisturizer is oil and water. Yeah so there's nothing wrong with oil. You know what I did and I'm paying the price for it I was not properly really looped up for summer and I got some sunspots and things and so My dermatologist actually said one of them was turned out to be precancerous. No you have to go to the term at least once a year. Check your spots. I mean we're we both grew up in the sun. I didn't wear a lot of Sun protection when I was a kid. We didn't know back then. We didn't baby. Oil is right on the tin foil. Thing out there yourself see. We're medium rare tinfoil in an old refrigerator.

Actually when my mom was pregnant with me her doctor said she was gaining too much weight and gave her a diet pill. Ouch yes why am I die. They call me Diet Dr Brown. It's because my mother took diet pills speedy fast uncertain. What new things are you working on? Okay I love the. It's a broad broad spectrum chill. CBD Gumy's seventeen which the kick in but CBD's good for so many things. It's good to kind of give you relaxation thing. Which I'm working on and it's also good for any kind of pain in your body because we all have inflammation and aches and inflammation lamasion? We've heard from many people including doctors. Inflammation is the biggest killer in America. It really is what causes all the problems. That kill people right so inflammation something.

We're things more satisfaction in life and we were talking about this earlier in the month of January. which is typically the the overrated month? Everyone says I'm going to be a new me in the month of January. I've done nothing. Nothing new as a matter of fact I feel like I've gone backward this month. I feel like I need to start over. There's a stall well January is overrated. Because there's too much hype it's like you have to have fun on New Year's even then you have to cleanse in January among stop it. It's not it's it's not the short game it's a long game. It's what you do all year.

How am I gonNA eat like no? What am I going to do to be the healthiest version of myself? So I feel really good like that is a big tiffany. Wow Yeah yeah we are. I think we'd cut. We cut herself short by wanting to lose weight versus wanting to live happier and healthier because they basically could work hand in hand to be the same thing right. It's not healthy.
