Moving From California to Arizona? Fine. But Leave Your Policies Behind

"You look at what's happening in California, all the people who are escaping, bringing their politics with them. People are saying that areas are not going to say blue because the only color for the Democrats is deep socialist red. So what talk to us about the dangers of a Democrat takeover in Arizona? How you're going to stop it and what your vision is for that great, great state, Cary. It is scary because we have seen so many people. I guess they're living in exile. They've left California because leftist policies over the last several decades have driven California, turned it into a hellscape to be honest. There's homeless encampments everywhere. The taxes are sky high. People are still being forced to mask up. It's horrible. So they're leaving in droves coming to Arizona looking for a free state. The problem is, we want to remain Arizona. We love our western heritage, our wild west heritage our native heritage and what makes us special. We don't want to morph into a big suburb of California. And we don't want the leftist policies that turned to California into the hellscape that it is seeping into Arizona. And we're starting to see that happen. So people are now rising up realizing it's happening quickly. California are coming over here, driving our housing prices up. And we don't want that. We are a welcoming people in Arizona, but please come here and respect the fact that we are a western state. We love our freedom. We love our Second Amendment. We love everything that makes this country free and don't try to change us into the California or the Oregon or the Washington blue state that you just

"Amerada. Keanu is that good hits the backhand with ease when she has time to set on the forehand lookout can change directions off both wings is fluid out of her. Corners is a reluctant but competent. Volleyer more than fine. She just the way. She springs her legs into the serve. The way she keeps her back swings condensed on the return of serve. She can do it all and so again when we look at this matchup for rod kanye moving forward in the final against leyla fernandez. Two players playing with house money. And i posited this theory and this worming to end the show. Because i gotta go do some knoxville stuff. So i do apologize again for the lack of complete Analysis like we've had on some of her past recaps but it's interesting to note you know the players ages twenty two to twenty eight. They grew up watching caroline. Wozniacki reach world number one but just take lump after lump in the grand slams and just you know again have to deal with the pressure and the narrative of the pressure over and over again until she broke through. Same deal with simona hal. Made what three four grand slam finals before. She was able to capture her first title. And you just see you know. Repeatedly players like please give who in her prime and was at the top of the game win so many of these players were watching the sport closely sheesh struggled with the pressures and i think too you know. The players sap lincoln older the benches of the world that socrates of the world. They think they're supposed to struggle with the pressures and they put this additional pressure on themselves because they say well. That's what the orcs always been. That's always been the narrative and while. I'm less certain of that. Half of my theory theory when i am very certain of is. That's not the case with fernandez. That's not the case with rodney keanu.

"What is black flag. I understand what that means in the his term it was. It was no quarter. Okay just everybody does it. Kill kill everybody. You capture somebody. You kill him. Wow which the war never dot to officially it got their unofficially a few times. But the but no one ever whenever one side brought that up which happens. Sometimes like we're gonna kill all the prisoners. The the other side has a pretty quick remedy for that. Yeah where did come up the other side say well okay then for everyone you kill we kill to i mean and then it will usually die down after that but all that stuff that jackson said in eighteen sixty one sounded absolutely not crazy at all including black flag. Which had stuff was going on. So i'm going to play devil's advocate here for a second. So you talked about jackson's moral courage. And i see what you're saying but in other ways when i read i sort of saw him as being you know i mentioned the word fanatic and you said yeah. That's an understatement. He you know he's so unconditionally believed what he believed that. It was almost irrational. And is it courage. Was it kind of just sort of blind trust. God yeah. that's a good point. Well what i meant by moral courage. That maybe i shouldn't use the word moral courage. It was perhaps it was just. It was when i was using it before it was more than the ability to make the decision that you thought was right in standby it. And that's why maybe moral courage with wrong right ripe but yes. It is so when you believe as jackson did that. Everything is in the hands of god period and if he wins a battle that is not because he won the battle jackson and if anybody around him started talking that way he would shut them up. It would remind them that they had won. The battle had nothing the fact that they had done. It had nothing to do with that. God had done it so if you believe. And when when he was after. I when asked us when he's riding around through this hail of bullets on his horse. If everybody else's racist flat is flounders underground taking their heads. We're being be taken up by the builds jackson's riding calmly up and down the line of battle. Somebody says general. How can you do that. And he goes always says. I don't he says my life is in the hands of my maker. The the time of his appointed time for my death is already been done and out of my hands. I i write it. He wasn't scared of dying. That's for sure no but okay but if you take it as your question is smart. It's like okay. Let's take the next step if you really believe that. That's one reason you aren't scared of dying is because now. The fact is that in the mexican war. Before jackson became as religiously arden as as he later became. He was every bit as break. The guy was not was simply not afraid of bolts. Yeah and that's that's a fact of jackson too but yeah he had this view and you know he had a view that god was in charge of everything and others. now he wasn't some crazy fanatic in terms of religion out there he was a presbyterian right down main street here. In a lot of ways he was this was very presbyterian. Perhaps a little bit more determined on the determinism side than but presbyterian had doctrines of predestination other things but he had views for example when he was living in lexington and.

I mean now we would say he's in the autism autism spectrum somewhere. Yeah yeah very very much. But i failed. College professor was like the worst teacher. Anybody ever seen a terrible eccentric just the kind of the town eccentric guy. You know who who walk funny and had funny habits and talk about that. He had this His diet he would eat like stale bread and water like sometimes this area for months at a time and he had he would go on these fad diets to sometimes like when inhale ammonia whatever the kind of fad was and he went to every mineral bath and one point would stand on one leg in hopped because it occurred to him that one side of his who was bigger than the other and very peculiar habits. If it was a nine o'clock in somebody that he was seeing in the evening was in the middle of a sentence. He would excuse himself walk out of the room because nine o'clock was when he went to bed and he didn't really teach at all he just recited this stuff to these kids in made them recited back and if someone said professor jackson when she please explain this difficult civics physics problem to me he would quote the book verbatim back at the student and terrible teacher and also terrible disciplinarian. His classes were just chaos. They tried to get rid of him several times at the school. They failed both times. You're asking was interested.

"That went on here in the eighteen sixties. The sand creek massacre being the most famous. But there are lots of other ones. You cannot say that the indians the only people who who did nasty things to women and children for example. There was lots of that done to them to all. I tried to do and i wasn't. I wasn't trying to balance equation. I wasn't trying to set any wrong right. i was. I was just trying to be a reporter. Yeah and report. Both sides deliver sides of the story in any way In that turns out to be kind of a a different look than had been done in a long time at the culture of plains indians Did you get some pushback from people who are I don't know do you call them. Indians i call them native americans. I don't know what the term to use. As are you from california new york. Yes i live. I'm from new york. And i and i live in california so i'm guilty here. In indian country people call them indians. Interesting here we call native americans to it. it isn't but it's not a term of disrespect outright. I think people from the east coast people there. Thank you say indian. Yes like you said redskins. Yeah that that is not true. That's interesting so indians here are referred to themselves. Indians and people refer to them as indians and so with all due respect indians. I'll say indians any pushback from the indians. Did you get kind of like a letter writing campaign to people. Try to boycott the book. I mean was about about that. Pacific indian brutality. I exactly no. I got nothing on that. There's a feeling among a lot of indians. White men like me shouldn't be writing histories like this. I mean i i mean. I can't do anything about that. But either one guys like me should write that kind of stuff or two if we do. We should really sit at the feet of the elders and received the wisdom. And that's fine. I mean okay. That's their point of view. But no on the specific question of brutality. No and the by wrote about his is documented This isn't war. this is an oral. History is documented raids documented violence. How were you able to document what was happening on. The indian side on the comanche side. Did they keep records. I mean no. No one of the great. Well yeah so once you get to the what we call the reservation period which begins in eighteen. Seventy five for the comanche. Then everything becomes much more transparent. You can find things but no. It's it's it's the great challenge to any historian of america is. There's no property records. There's no legal system there's no histories things are not written down. And so if you can imagine for a moment someone writing a book about winston churchill. You can find out what that guy's doing pretty much every minute of every day you know..

In austin the cover story. George bush the first one done on w. so that was that involved in that was entirely a political figure but i did stories on music and culture and sports and always a core business which is still to this day like a good story. So when did you transition to writing historical books. I mean i would say that. So my best writing was done at texas monthly which is kind of very dominant statewide monthly indiana's great. This year. we win a lot of awards in great writing and you and it's a writers magazines. You kinda get to do what you do. So i did. A lot of big and was the first time i was doing big six thousand seven thousand eight thousand nine thousand word features yup on some working at this link suddenly a lot of my stories when i look back are really histories. I did what it amounts to the history of the republican party. As in the last quarter of the twentieth century. I did a story about the king ranch. Big iconic here very much a history of the ranch so a lot of my writing and started to go into very historical stuff and scientists sitting around wherever texas monthly and thinking that well you know i. I like this job. But i haven't really not swinging for the fences anymore. That's how i phrased it to myself. I said you know you gotta need to swing for the fences here. Something big project so being interested in history and Especially interested in texas history. Because if you live here you get interested in that you know. I just had this little side project texas monthly. I wanted to do a book about the comanche. Who were this. Totally cool tried that. I'd never knew anything about the turns out vomit and determinate of a lot of the history in this part of the world as a little project you know. I just spent a few years and i i got. I got a modest advance. Went out got some time off from the company and and went out and did This book called empire the summer moon. And i'm back in those days. Nobody wanted a book about the american west. Nobody wanted a book about native americans and there weren't any and there wasn't a model that you could point to and say. Oh that was a big bestseller. Was nothing like that. So in fact what i would tell my journalist friends. I would say i'm working on this. And they kind of look at me and go. Yeah yes amu- has has a really great idea sam.

"I mean hey. Sc or sam is he likes to calm have a very similar background. We both worked in the magazine world for years and He just happened to write a bestselling book. That sold one point. Four million copies. How did he do it. How did he research this book. How did he find the story. These are the questions that i want to know. Plus i wanted him to share these incredible stories. Both of these incredible stories with you so without further ado. I bring you the very gifted very smart very talented. Sc aka sam gwynne. We'll sam gwynne welcome to right about now. It's great to be here so true confession empire this summer moon. Pretty watch one of my favorite books of all time here and by the way rebel. Yell also means we're gonna talk about all your books but empire the sun moon sort of was transformative for me. It made me in some ways. I love it. And i hated at the same time because i kept trying to replicate the experience of reading that book and getting all these books about that period of history and it could never find one that i liked as much as empire this summer moon. So thanks for leading me down the rabbit hole which didn't actually unfortunately produce any ones like the new book. You're you're very welcome. I am flattered before we get into your books. I'd love to get a little bit about your background because it's a very interesting background. You've done a lot of things you even before you became a writer and i just kind of wanted to sort of understand how that'll informed who you are today you went to princeton and you also went to graduate school. Correct for writing yeah. I went to john's writing program at johns hopkins in baltimore under the very famous then. Very famous novelists john barth and it's interesting so he was a novelist but you ended up going into into nonfiction. Yeah so i went. I got out of princeton. I took a job teaching french and baltimore to private school. Because i couldn't. I didn't know what else to do. And i think the i think the thing i wanted to be was f scott fitzgerald course really as a fast track so by the time you're twenty five year in paris Living at the richardson drinking champagne out of lady slippers. I think that's the oh and also writing really well and becoming hugely famous and all that so that was the model you not that big a deal right. Yeah that's pretty easy. I and so. I was writing fiction. And i got into the fiction workshop at hopkins And got a masters degree on those cheap free master's degrees in quote writing unquote that so that was the start. The start was an wants to be a fiction writer and the the problem was as i learned really mostly at hopkins was that i'm just not that good a affection writer you know. Some people are some people aren't why do you think that is because you're such a good writer. Why why was fiction. Not you're calling. It's all a question of looking at a blank page and making things up. I mean i look at a blank page if somebody says ripe fiction i have absolutely no idea where to go with that. I know there was a. Where am i gonna go have a fourth century..

"Like it might have suspects that would interest you Or you just samsung guy. No no so it's not that Eat when you got yours. I was seriously contemplating not contemplating. I was thinking about it. This has been the biggest problem for me. with google and they're pixels. They don't look like flagship devices. They look like a mid tier device. Brian so if i want you know when i got my s twenty ultra it was you know. I'm being biased. But it was one of the most beautiful devices You know the you know. The earth is senior in actual phone. it was not taking a backseat to anything. That iphone had out if anything it was taking a backseat to maybe some other android devices The aren't necessarily as big in states as there are other places. But it is a premium device when you take a pixel and you said it next to a like a galaxy s. or galaxy note or the new The new fold it. Doesn't it doesn't hold water with aesthetics compared to that and that was the biggest thing for me is like why does this phone fill all plastic easy and it feels like it is and if feels like motorola joint did you get Where you just phone outright. And they were still asking for grip for now clearly it wasn't costing what the what the ultra costing but it wasn't like you were paying significantly less to get to get that that's been my biggest issue with With google and i've thought for a long time just partner with somebody you know partner was samsung partner with motorola partner with one of these companies that they have all the knowledge and they know how to make these. You know these big beautiful phones and slap you know slap a pixel logo on it and Kind of go from there. But they're not doing that so as long as they're still looking like a mid tier level phone.

I know you talking about what movie i mean jack. Yes look at you look at you. Yeah i was about to reject your car is like how could you not. How could you not have seen that.

This season of industies about the wrap up and they're about to come out with the new the new season in two weeks. I'm going to say that this is probably one of the best storyline. I've seen in a game in a long time. Like the previous storylines. Were you know. Were good and it was very interesting. They they have outdone themselves with this. It is super interesting. What's going on in the game. So i don't know if anybody plays the game you or just you know or as fan but don't have time to play the game. I telling you go online and check out the lower and the story of it is so. Here's the question and a half I own destiny to. I may have even bought an expansion or two years ago. Can i get whatever the new stuff is in. Just start with a new character on that new stuff or am i going to have to build a character up all the way to have certain boosts in the game but honestly i would probably just i i would just wait till the next season starts because in two weeks because usually there's like boosters and you know you're going to be doing the same stuff everybody else's and so two weeks that's That's not an issue. The reason i say that is because i'm actually. I'm looking for new game until the new metro it comes out on the nintendo switch.

What what up without al-saleh's man. You know the one the thing. Rod gave me a reprieve today. I was certainly cursing his name for the last three hours. And i was like wait a minute getting late. He hasn't called me. Come move this eight hundred pound desk table. This i had another buddy come and help me do the flip so When you when you're is when you are ceiling a table and i'm using a product called rubio monaco So oil base Finish it is highly recommended that you do one side which typically start at the bottom and you immediately flip it over and do the top side so that You don't have a situation where one side of the The would can absorb moisture and then the would move senate cups. Her bows on you. And then you're essentially back to sanding and trying to flatten it back. Wow wow that sounds ridiculous like moisture. We talked about men. When you're dealing with these real wood pieces and and not particle board they will literally absorb moisture in the air or dry out. 'cause When i was doing my cutting boards. I had them sitting in my office and the topside dried out and just completely bent and i was like what the heck is going on. I was like man. This things were perfectly flat. And so i had to basically flip it over Take an iron will. So ma with wet towel and in ironed a wet towel to kind of force moisture and in board actually slowly sank and got flagging in a it. Sounds crazy but these boards continue to move at cutting boards. I don't want to say it's a super easy problem to fix. But when you're talking on an eight foot table four feet wide man. You don't want that. So i was like let me give christmas backup break so i picked one of my buddies like oh i definitely i can come over at five because i got to take the kids to football but i have like a window between five and five thirty. I was like. I'll start to table and have it ready when you walk in the door. Five so he. He pulled up to my house at five o'clock and i had finished like ten minutes before walked outside. Flip the table over us out the door by five. Oh four so. It's not that it's a lot of time is just heavy so Tomorrow i have to flip the table back over rough up the coat and then refinish it again one last time and then that's twenty four hours before i can touch it so either he. Chris will get called on saturday to help me flip the table one last time to do the top. And then it's twenty four hours for that to finish then a week for it to fully cure and that i'm doing A ceramic seal on the table and then it goes into service gorgeous though saturday ceramic and Next friday or saturday. I'll do the ceramic coating and Within twenty four hours. I can actually take the table and bring it inside. Yeah so what while you were saying. A really wasn't listening. Did hear something you say football practice and it just got me to thinking that football is upon us me. We already had the hall of fame game. But i'm sitting here. And i'm just going to say this. I'm upset the my parents had me. You know didn't have thirty years later. Because do you see the money that these players are now. Getting the day can work off of their likeness. Now i know that You guys actually live in a city with multiple professional sports teams. You have all four sports right. I'll four pager sports in dc. So yeah here in columbus. We only have hockey In a no people who really enjoy hockey are going to. I guess technically we have soccer to football. Our whole team here is ohio state. Football that is the protein and like a so mark. Walberg has a the actor the marky mark the old rapper currently in actor He has a chevy dealership here in columbus. So state has a A blue chip freshman I think he's a defensive. Lineman came in do got him. Like a seventy thousand dollar chevy silverado. you know. and he's he's advertising. Mark waugh birds chevy dealership easy. There's all kind of tweets and instagram post. And you know all that kind of stuff out there but it's like. I'm just glad these kids are able to do that. Because i think you wanna see You know a couple of things you're going to see Folks who can go to school where they really wanna go to school Instill be able to make a little bit of money As compared to having to go to the school where they know they can get you know a booster to give him something under the table. Because america don't be dismayed blue chip players that he would have still gotten a truck it just wouldn't have been public would have been. It wouldn't have been his truck. It would have been his girlfriend's truck that he has the keys to rise all the time. That's how it used to happen now. It actually can happen legitimately to where it is his truck and he can actually go out and make this money and i'm just. I'm glad it just happened in for you know for the current players. I wish i played thirty years later as compared japan thirty years ago. Yeah i think. It's i think it's a good thing because there's a crop of kids who will be very good in college and can make money off their likeness but probably never make the pro- pros or would be able to try out. And they may not make this team and they try to for a couple of years and they just never get into the nfl so they'd never get the big money and if they can make good money while they're in college Get their education on someone else's dime that's know more paradigm thing knows you're gonna start seeing stuff like this. You want to see the super duty. That are all playing together. I mean these travel a you teams. That are playing together. Their whole seven or eight good players on that squad wall to the same school. So that's not going to be north carolina in most cases that's not going to be kentucky. That's not going to be You know can gonzaga. Well maybe gonzaga. But it's not going to be the you know the the biggest of the big name schools if but what if you if you like of the top one hundred players seven of them play on a team together and they all decided to go to our house sweet. Would that be for howard and you're starting to see stuff like that happening In the reason that it can is because although howard is not is not you know a powerhouse school. It really doesn't matter when you are when you have that kind of talent because you're really just there for the year of eligibility that you gotta give is Until you turn nineteen you can go to league anyway. So i think he wanted to start seeing that more and you know so basketball's going to change but i think the biggest change is gonna come in you know. How close are we to just forcing for conferences. Sixteen teams you know basically You had the big ten tax wales. Sec acc in essiet. There's just in notre dame notre dame of probably still try to do their own thing. But i think you're gonna ask sore sixteen team super conferences with an x four five years from a football standpoint..

The Story of Pecos Bill and the Tornado

"Once upon a time in the wild west a little boy named bill fell off a wagon by the side of the pecos river. Now a normal baby would have cried. His eyes out that this boy was different. He crawled up to a mama coyote and just acted like one of her pups. It was a little hard with him. Not being as hairy. But he was raised by the coyotes for years until his older brother eventually found him and brought him home years later after that he went by the name of paco's spill and as he got older he became famous for being the toughest bronco buster there ever was and he proved it time and time again. Now in case you're a greenhorn. A bronco buster is someone who gets horses used to a saddle. Some horses are okay with being britain but others not so much the fastest and strongest horses. The best for rough riding would fight the saddle. They had to be ridden through the fighting until they got used to it to make that happen someone would have to try and ride while they were still wild. Of course the stallions would buck and spin and kick and jump and go absolutely wild until they sent their writer into the dirt. It was a hard job and bronco busters where the people they called when someone couldn't break a horse themselves and when you had a horse too tough to mean to downright nasty for a buster. You called paco's bill. Bill would travel around the wild parts of america looking for adventure and boy did he find it on his travels. He singlehandedly doug the mississippi river battled the bear lake monster to a standstill and fell in love with a wild woman who rode giant catfish down the rivers. And all that. It's just the first go round in the rodeo of bills life

Between the chinese and british forces from the shoreline and in this war-torn region word began to spread about an opportunity in a particular region of the united states notion of california being go mountain became embedded and became legendary. They heard the glorious stories of wealth from just going over there and picking up gold nuggets in the streams of california soon. Many young men from this region set out for california a lot of them intended to one day. Come home sometimes. They were married. Just before say ritz. Leave because their parents wanted to make sure that they return but once they got to california there were some who were very eager and homesick and wanted to return. They had wise or sweethearts back in china and they wanted to be with them or with their parents. Others were much not so philly hill. And i so conventional but liked the money that they got in the united states the latitude or freedom. Young men van -joyed in the wild west there is lots of opium there is prostitution and there was work to be had including prospecting for gold. Which though ching notes it's draped in romanticism.

"Express like greg said is only here for eighteen months. But you can't have a wild west movie without pony express riders and because of buffalo bill and some of the show men of his day. Those technologies that we think of the old west that may not have been around for a super long time are enshrined in the american memory of what the west was. And how we think about it. yeah i for me. A lot of it boils down to time. I feel like time and how we thought about. Time and measure time just changed so dramatically for people all across the country right. It was a male literally the train you know guys this socks We need to sync up exactly. Yeah then i wholly took your your steamed locomotive fireman shovelling away like it's over now now doused it. Like samba's man. Wow these are some super lame insider jokes. Listen listen we're devices people to go back and listen to have. Yeah because you know. It's almost thinking right now. Shucks i didn't quite get greg's lame dad joke man. I need to go back and revisit that episode you were seeing something smart. Bite your fine time. Really because teen months is not a long time frame at all and yet it's like today. I'm sure within a reasonable distance of where we're recording tonight. We can go and see sights that you know. These original pony express. Riders went water the horses and switch outriders and pick up. More mail withdraws af- off and there. There's a campsite right near. Juan went camping with my kids Scout troop just a few months ago. Nice is the mill of effing. Nowhere i mean in. Hey i had a great time. My big regret is that. I didn't bring my telescope because there was zero light pollution. It was gorgeous by you. It was the middle of nowhere. That is the sort of campsite where half way there. I started thinking. I'm driving the wrong vehicle. Yeah yeah yeah. I remember visiting one of these sites as a kid and i mean it was kinda cool. Like oh you know. I'd seen wild west movies right. Pony express riders like. I got it very quickly. It was the yeah. This really is the middle of nowhere. I have no idea how these people got around for the sake of delivering their mail in new. Exactly what direction had often and is pretty crazy. And this is where i think it's it's really fascinating just thinking about the romanticize asian think about actually being a part of this imagine being the bored to tears soccer that lives at one of these weigh stations waiting for a rider horrible. Is your job to have no neighbors at all. I mean it's basically okay so it's basically like the last year for most of us right but with no netflix warranty without the internet. It's yeah so. I mean if you wanna go all throw here you know. I guess this walden pond precisely. This is the job for you. People aren't bringing you pies though you know. Yeah i know. There's no. I mean if anything the those express razor like what do you have for me. I'm exhausted. I just road You've been sitting here all day. Yeah in sweatpants waiting for me to drop off some mail. That's that is it. That is not an acoustic at all so huge. What pants are not huge. In the nineteenth century disclaimer with strauss was indeed indeed well. It's catching on catching. Yeah yeah okay. So let's circle over to the buffalo bill. Maher absolutely so ryan. Yeah we've discussed and let's let's do this in in greater detail because we've kind of kept it brief. I don't want to throw away the enthusiasm realism of of the real conversation. So you were saying earlier. A little bit about kelly wyoming your illustrious extent so the most recent episode the end of the wild west. We got to buffalo bill. We followed him up to eighteen thousand three then. Of course we sauntered on over to the expo left left buffalo bill collecting fat stacks of cash just outside of it and good for him but we didn't follow him through the end of his life so we didn't ever get to him. Founding freaking cody wyoming right and a footnote version. He also does a show in the uk at queen. Victoria's julie does a show in. Italy has ever to the vatican and a otherwise tours. Europe tries invoices wife. I i believe if i recall correctly the judge says no but the wanted to terminate the marriage different era and then we can circle back to this later To just rounded out starts to step into the film world because films are becoming thing in the early twentieth century and so shows like his or starting to decline. That doesn't work out so great for him. Indians up dying not as wealthy as he once was in one thousand nine. Seventeen true okay. So his life sketch done. Ryan cody wyoming. We were talking about memory in the way things play out there. Yeah so. I had the pleasure. And i. That wasn't sarcasm It was actually a fun town to live in. But yeah sure. I don't think if people cody wyoming got the impression you're dialing that back at all. Yeah no yeah no. I actually really did. Enjoy living in cody wyoming for about six eight months a few years back and i went in in like spring into the late summer so i was able to see the cody stampede rodeo and all it's glory it's like one of the rodeos across the nation. There is literally rodeo every night for like three months straight. You are okay man. I mean we we do rodeos here in utah. Yeah that's that's a big thing audio serve. We do but so the town i live in. There's a rodeo grounds and there's a rodeo once a year for few days so when you tell me that it's on the daily for months. I'm just thinking about the sustained effort. I mean is a big deal to put on. A rodeo has no small thing yeah it's it's fantastic and i'm in like the best of the best is their up and coming in the radio world. They all go through cody because like end the whole town. There's you know it's a really a beautiful area But yeah everybody comes out. They have a fantastic Arena you know huge bleachers on the west end of town remember correctly and yeah the rodeos huge everybody goes so i love getting to see that and Of course went to the huge buffalo bill. Museum there but Yeah sticking with buffalo bill Talking with a few people in town there are definitely mixed responses. You know some people. Are you know sing. His praises and there are other people. I definitely remember hearing tag now. He was a philanderer and a womanizer and he wasn't as great. Some people think but man Still such an interesting life. The room hotel still there. During the summers they'll do Fake leg gunslinger fights outside and fun fact the original bar. Which if i'm not mistaken is made out of cherry. But it's huge. It's still inside the irma. Which is named after his daughter and so we had to go in there. They have fantastic food. Just like the whole atmosphere thrown right back into the original founding.

New rules offer patient access to electronic health records

"A new federal rule takes effect today giving patients more access to their medical records for free many health records are already available electronically but it can be a hassle to get them. The new rule also changes. What kinds of information. Patients can request marketplace's. Kimberly adams has more. The rule makes it illegal for healthcare providers to engage in what's called information blocking with fines of up to a million dollars if they make it too hard for patients to get their records. Liz saw me as a senior strategist for the group open notes which advocates for transparency in medical records. She says if it weren't for the pandemic this concept of full transparency to everything on the record the notes the labs halogen boards would be the biggest story in healthcare. As of today patients should start being to access all of that information and share it with healthcare providers schools and workplaces even third party smartphone apps. Dr rachel stirrup is the health lead at the future of privacy forum and says once you get your records you the patient have control over where your health information goes then. It pretty much becomes a wild west because not all those apps or schools or even companies face the same privacy rules as traditional medical providers. Also right now. Many of those providers aren't ready to roll out all the changes. Dr jesse aaron failed is with the american medical association. There's a lot of confusion the legal requirements or complex and interfaces with Third parties data use agreements. Not the kind of stuff. They normally cover in med school

Thirsty: A Sheriff James Roberts story from the Wild West

"For a halfway full canteen. The song came to the sheriff's suddenly scoured free by the sandy fever. In his head he'd been in the desert for a week now. He was sunburned. Wind burned hungry tired and more but none of that was the real problem. No the real problem was this sheriff. James roberts was thirsty. It had always been a small word thirsty. Strictly a lower case t word thirsty was how he felt after a hard day of riding in the sun thirsty was how he felt when he woke up in the morning to a dry and dusty mouth thirsty could be fixed by a ladle of cool water from the pump. This was different. This was more than thirsty. This was thirst. This was the deep primal aac. It left his throat hot and painful. His lips cracked like an old scab three days three dry agonizing days. That's how long it had been since he'd had a drink. Even that was barely a sip. Just the warm dregs of his canteen. Now he found himself in the middle of the brand of brow desert alone with nothing but the buzzards for company and not so much as a mouthful to drink. Oh it had all started well enough. Len bradford and his bandits had come to hazel thinking. They'd find an easy target in the small town bank instead. They'd found sheriff. James roberts and three. Us rangers ready and waiting. Most of the bandits were arrested without drawing their weapons but len and his brothers had escaped through a second story window and high tailed it for the desert.

So i started on the facebook ad platform almost fourteen years ago. So i started when i was first in college around two thousand and seven as at the university of florida. The platform was all for college students. Maybe some people who turned eighteen just starting to get their feet wet on the platform in the opened up to the public the same year that i entered college and so it was easy for me to jump in because we need money right. Just bring on all these people. Let them test out our platform. See what we can do with it in. This was when it was a wild wild west. Targeting options were non-existent. It was sort of. Just buy up inventory. Maybe you select the cities or the states. You wanna target in the nets. You would hope that everything would work. And so you know i. It was very much in that same way of advertising on facebook for several years. Didn't really become more of the platform that we see today until around the time that i graduated from college. So around. two thousand eleven twenty ten twenty eleven. You start to see the platform mature right. You can advertisers to run ads for you. They have more targeting options they were revolting but they did not get to the place that you see today with business manager in multiple advertisers in accounts in in all these different behaviors and interests and all these things that income around until around two thousand twelve twenty thirteen.

What should that person have like ready before. They contact even contact anyone. Let me back you up a little bit further than that and then yeah please john walk you through. You know out of the tip but if you sort of think about it. Here's the reason we started. Great bill you sort of think about the process to find a contract very different than the search to find anything but they onli- a laptop or aristocracy whatever obviously buried and so and we started great built the realize that there is no great way to do this really the way that people have been doing this than the stone ages is a. Ask a friend you know. What kind of contractor do you recommend you know. who did you use it. you like. Who built your kate right now. That same person. So that's that's been working forever but then option number two kind of sock option number two. Is you get online. And through other review sites all the yelps and all the various sites and opened the reviews are true which these days you know and look at pictures and all the contractors rate at four or five stars and that process is not great. That's what the yellow pages was like twenty thirty years ago i'm probably dating myself here right and And so there's no really good way way option for once. Great option number. Two kinda sucked but we thought like. How do you really figure out a way to find great contractor if you If you don't know someone personally or if you don't have a friend that knows somebody because the problem is that you know you're where we work in southern california in la county alone one county with twenty thousand licensed general contractor. Okay so again tons to choose from right and the other statistic. We found that is amazing and i. I bet you'd be surprised by this. Is that fifty percent of people who work with contractor who hire contractor. There was a survey done about this. Have a bad experience with it. So of those twenty thousand you pick ten thousand. You can have a good experience. You pick the other two thousand. You have terrible experience so we said there's gotta be a better way and that's why we started great bills and all john kind of continue the conversation about what it means to then a good contractor and how we seek out good contractors. You're so as as paul said we always. We agree with it. The number one best way to find a good contractor is from referral. Someone you know either in the industry or with relevant experience that has done a project like this before it. My neighbor just finished the kitchen remodel. i talked to them. It came in at a good price and they were happy with the experience. My search is over. I'd probably already found a good fit. But if i'm not fortunate enough to have the just the right neighbor next door or a coworker or a real estate agent who can refer me to a good contractor. I'm left with the many many options on all the other sites in yellow pages and otherwise so what we do to kind of reinforce good contractor or all the same things that anyone can be doing It just takes time. It takes for expensive and so it's not so much finding a good contractor but more so screening out the bad contractor

I have the proper bartender which he'll probably explain more of that anyway and matt can't be here. Sorry guys but let's toasty. What the heck do you do man. So thanks for the introduction. Yes i am. Social media not grew but on social media. My tag is proper bartender What i do is i supply beverage. Consultancy direct coverage programs. I develop them as well. A bar management and for typically the most recent program that i had was based in the stockyards unfortunately as we are all familiar with current events that was unable to last unfortunately did not receive the type of funding or direction that we envisioned that it would be able to receive in those regards and we just weren't able to the ownership wasn't able to hold on and we had to let it go but it was a program that was very very very proud of it was the excuse me it was. The only pre through post prohibition craft cocktail bar in fort worth little like this is like Like old school kind of sure absolutely so we're trying to say it was very much old school something it was authentic self. It was originally established in nineteen eleven. Right it's been a few things in the time period but it was actually texas. I gambling hall and salute so in nineteen eleven. What happened was they opened up again home saloon soon. After as as we're all familiar with prohibition hit now prohibition for those who are aware means that basically the consumption and production of alcohol became legal while when that happened Gambling was still legal. So what they did was. They moved at the bar downstairs hidden and they kept the gambling room upstairs. Interestingly enough soon. After the repeal of prohibition gambling in the state of texas became illegal so in order to fool the fuzz if you will the old switcheroo took place and they moved the bar upstairs and downstairs and it's a really great space. It's it's the history. There's incredible the original owner of time. So the downstairs still there. The downstairs is all american oak tables and chairs. It was actually attained that way because at the time the original owner gave a loan out to a gentleman who was a friend of his and he was unable to pay back said loan but the joe men was a carpenter and he worked at the local lumber mill. Yeah so in order to reimburse him he actually built him. Twenty tables and eighty chairs out of oak. And those things are sturdy and place has an incredible history.

How Harpers Bazaar follows digital trends to retain its authority in fashion

"So much. Bring on podcast nikki. Thank you for having me. So you've been at harper's bazaar now for what was it like three or four months. It's a it's a new role for you right. this is a new york. But you've come from other notable fashion and lifestyle publications before so you're this is a strong suit for you. This isn't like a new kind of area but how was it starting a new strategic leadership role during a pandemic when the world's remote yet it's i mean starting a sort of new role i think whether you're in leadership or you know just starting your job is weird when it's remote you have to think about how you're going to get to know the team how you're going to deliver feedback. How you're gonna energize. They seem to want to continue working during these like quote unquote crazy times. So it's on. It's tricky but i think it was really great for me to come back to a place like harper's bazaar where i knew a lot of the team already And just sort of hit the ground at the ground running. I think what's particularly interesting about your position and what your colleagues are are looking to do is Harper's bazaar is a legacy fashion brand. It's been around for decades I think i have a coffee table book of lake the covers from the early nineteen hundreds of harper's bazaar it's beautiful but my point is it's a it's old publication Your task though with turning that into a modern digital brand for a younger audience what goes into that process. And how have you been able to do that. during a pandemic yeah. I think when we when i came on and joined late. Attorney coffin. samir. Nassar join the two of them in sort of figuring out what harper's bazaar harper's bazaar dot com gonna look like. We really wanted to go back to you know fashion first and really leaning into our luxury routes but we also have a lot of roots in the feature space so we wanna take back into that as well and so you see a story take for example. We just put a story up today with a profile of martha stewart. And so you see. Somebody like martha stewart. Who is a legacy in a number south but we dressed her in gucci and fear of god and so we wanna make those sort of juicy internet e profiles at people will love but really just speak to what we as a brand do so well and have done so well for well over one hundred years though in that example. I'm assuming that there's probably a lot of like maybe social media elements tied in to take a What would normally be maybe spread in magazine and make it come alive for a much. Larger audience Key talk about you. Know the role that social media on that platform how that's been playing in your editorial strategy and digital strategy. Yeah i mean for the martha stewart story in particular. That story was sort of bread from following martha herself on social media and so she posted over the summer. I believe she posted that amazing sort of like you know beautiful photo of her coming out of a pool and like giving a kiss of the camera and we were like. Oh god martha stewart's kinda major right now like she. Obviously everyone knows apple. What if we lake put her into a sexy little dress or we put her into this suit and put some congress seekers on her and so that story particularly started it was born out of social media and then we were able to blow it out in the pages of the magazine and then have beautiful imagery to put back on social media and so really just sort of trying to think three sixty and trying to really not It's not about A print story or digital story. It's really thinking about the brown. The brand holistically and so when we have a profile like martha you know. How are we going to blow it out on all of the

Beer Brands in Gaming with New Belgium Brewing's Patrick Morgan

"What is new Belgium's perspective on gaming? Why is this an area that the Brad wanted to pursue as a way to connect with customers? Yeah. So I think it's kind of a interesting holistic story about four years ago in the craft industry wage was a lot of waxing and waning of the market in general and so we're looking at different markets to be in at New Belgium. We in general have a very big gaming history have a wow raid group since vanilla. They play in The Brewery. We watch Red versus Blue in the all-staff. We have a land gaming like party room in the upstairs gaming has been this very big encompassing involvement within the brewery. We even have a semi-pro Halo player on staff and cosplayers that work in our in our bar or club. And so what came about was that in craft brewing we weren't even talking to ourselves and a market that we are actually playing in as individuals. And so what happened was like, why are we not talking to ourselves? Why are we not in the space of why isn't craft beer in the gaming and kind of pop culture like geekdom kind of Mark and so so we started to explore it and this was about four years ago. And it really kind of brought about a lot of fun with in the brewery kind of excitement of shown that like, oh like yeah, we're already here like we know how to talk to ourselves this totally works. And so very first thing right off the bat is we approached dreamhack cuz we want to play in that Esports competitive side of things and I think our very first partnership ever was four years ago was csgo open in Atlanta, Georgia. And from then on we just haven't stopped and it's exploded since that's really cool. And I think it's it's awesome to to see that. You know Brad's do we talk about sort of how Brands enter into gaming and so many of them started maybe like wait, we we are playing video games. Why aren't we trying to connect with this audience? And especially if you have more and more marketers entering these Major Brands, we're seeing the way that gaming Partnerships take form continue to evolve because they're people that are displayed on audience. And so they really understand how to reach them. How have you learned over the last four years? What are some lessons you've taken away that would help guide your strategy today. It's really interesting because faith in the gaming industry as it's I especially Esports. I feel like it's this wild west of things when new brands are coming in and we've gone the route of supporting dead. So when it comes to competitions and stuff, we've actually kind of stepped away from those things a little bit and we've gone to supporting smaller streamers smaller communities and even some e sports players and uplifting them in their communities by providing them with meetups and stuff like that. So so coming into this space very genuine or sukuk and uplifting communities and those players or streamers to to a legitimate level and believe in them and bring them to these places whether it's a package Pax West twitchcon, whatever an intern growing that also I hate to say the word clout. I think it's a ridiculous word, but like growing that off while but in a genuine way because we're truly growing a family within the gaming industry and not just going in and doing a logo graveyard

"wild west" Discussed on Marketing Over Coffee

"Good Morning Welcome to marketing over coffee. I'm John Wall Christopher Ben and I. Don't even know where to start. Where do we start? It's just I. had this whole insane story that I just refuse to go into about my old neighbors who were being allegedly? An ebay security team for a year. Just like this insane strikes. I'll just throw to that because. That's totally crazy. Things are crazy. Crazy Times ten. But you know the thing. I will say about this from a marketing perspective. Where was the Social Media Monitoring Team Right? Where was the the Alex? Team where the the folks at Ebay who you should have seen because it was not. Something that was kept coat totally quiet this. There's there's been content about this. What happened in its complete failure in your marketing analytics governance where nobody's watching, the someone should have gone through the mentions of the brand and stuff. That doesn't look. We normally don't send bloody pig masks to people. And that's the thing that amazes me. There is just like this line where your company becomes so big that you have these. Black OPS teams. It's like a security blacks OPS team within your own company. You know because you're so big. So. Yeah, just totally nuts and yeah I'm crazy, but it speaks to the need that you absolutely should have human review, and you should be having somebody in your Pr. Your comms team somebody looking at the social media mentions looking at more than just like the line graph of you know. How many mentions you got that day? Actually sampling the data looking in there because you should be able to see. That article looks like it could be a problem. One of the Challenges Crisis Comms is that like for regular social media monitoring pr you can rely line chart of number of mentions went up because you're looking at data and the aggregate when you're doing crisis communications, you have to be looking at every single article because you don't know when the next spark is going to become the next bonfire, so somebody's gotta be reviewing stuff that the software would say hey, this for flagging this even just for questionable with what to do with it, and clearly that was not happening. Yeah, yeah, and so probably best practice would be. You got to get all hands. Anybody that can generate content and understands the company is going to have to transition to watching the feeds during that crisis positions that make sense exactly, and and you need a specialist software for that. Because a lot of social media monitoring tools just kind of like big batch stuff. There's no anomaly tracking in real time in most software packages. So it's important that if a crisis is going to be a problem for your brand, or you see it being a problem, you need to have that real time feed. It should look kind of like you know. The Matrix low at all the walls, going by and things, but without it you will get burned. Yeah, there's just so much that you have to dig into like you said. You have no idea what's coming next and when it will flare up. You had Boston dynamics to selling their robot for seventy five grand. You can go ahead and buy yourself one of these things I don't know. What do you think is? Has the time come for robots I mean there's they actually show in one of the marketing bids it doing patient screening, it can do temperature scan hit people's foreheads, and you don't have staff moving through the office, so it seems like a great application but I don't know what's your overall? Take on the robot revolution. It's an incredible piece of machinery now in the terms of service. If you read it on, the ordering page does say you may not. Use Robots to intimidate or harm people or other animals, and your warranty will be void, and we will revoke permission to use the robot. If you do these things so they they do have the remote kill switch if you start doing stuff that. Should be doing with it that said I want to figure out how much it actually can carry. Because that's totally the kind of thing that you would put a saddle ought and just ride around. Well. This is another thing I've said this before on. The show is that I think they consciously went with creating dog size robot. Because there's no reason they couldn't do one. That's five times the size, except for the fact that would scare the daylights out of everybody on Earth to see this larger than a cow thing barreling down at them. As a side Gig you have a horseriding farm. Wouldn't the ROBOT BE? Great is like the trainer to learn how to ride horse because you know it. You're no danger of getting bucked off because the robot literally will not do that. That is a heck of a question. We could just make a horse suit for one of those, and yes, it would totally behavior. We wouldn't. Even you know. The ring could be fixed. The thing would stay within a foot in every direction wouldn't go to the other big win. I was saying that for here's throwing. Hey, this is the time of year where they're getting six or seven hay wagons a month that need to be the he needs to be loaded and thrown up into the upper barnes and yeah, having a robot do that with just make all that go away instantly. Nobody likes to do that work. At the AG. It's not like we have a line of employees wanting to do it either it's it's quite a struggle,

"A resort or resort Representative. I just think it's it's business. It's short term profits. It's trying to stay profitable. It's trying to put a rose tinted picture on it. Keep people excited about the mountains. You know, again their job is to get people to the mountains by their tickets. Enjoy protects the Berman. It's maybe as an afterthought, but you know, the number one priorities these businesses to be profitable. And this is really really bad for business. This is a really terrible thing that has happened to them. And honestly as much as people will point to you know, chairlifts no making skiers flying places to go skiing whatnot. You know, that's not why we have climate change. It's not helping it. But that's not why and it's not their fault. What is their faults is trying to sweep it under the rug and try? Pretend like nothing's really happening. Like there's just climate variability verse not climate change. You know in a in a recent interview, the president of NSA said or we don't know what the future's going to hold. We don't know because we are not scientists. And you gotta say while there are thousands of scientists out there, thankfully, and all you gotta do is listen to them because they do know what's going to happen. Maybe not precisely within one hundred of a degree. But they're pretty sure and their accuracy is proven again. And again, the ant that that debate is over we know what's happening. It's getting warmer snow melts when it's warms the only question is when and where and how much each tech support you live in New York City these days, right? Yes. Yes. Not exactly amount. Downtown. So how'd you get out and go so you get down in the right? I go I go to the Catskills a fair amount. And I still do sign mints every now. And then so I actually just went up to the gas bay peninsula and Quebec and skied the chick Chuck mountains, which are absolutely phenomenal. It's not twenty four inches the day before we Rives and whiskey powder all day long. And that was my first run of the season. After getting these tree in October sues especially sweet for me has learning. All that. You've learned changed your idea about how you ski. It has. I sort of naturally gravitated toward that country skiing many years ago. I don't like the crowds at resorts every now, and then it's fun and for work I used to have to. But I really when we were up in Quebec were just hiking and skiing up in the Catskills. Pre often, I'm deciding skiing's. That that came Khanna naturally if things keep going the way they're going, you know resorts will be closing of for all the snow is gone. I e the lifts are going to stop spinning. But the mountains and snow still going to be there for a while. You know, that is a possible trend for us here in the states, just more and more kind of turns. But the biggest thing for me in the last five years anyway is really just trying to activate these skiers really do care. They really do want to do something, and they just need a leader life. Protect our winters again like us Ben like rap Ajo base like squad. Alleys valley stunned the tremendous things in terms of getting liberty utilities to push for renewables and ending coal-fired power from coming into the Olympic valley. There you know, that that's the leadership that they're really looking for. And just I really hope I really hope it happens for the climate. I really hope it happens. Also because I've spent so much time in that world. And it's it's it's kind of a baris- to look at what we're not doing especially when we have so much capacity to to really stand up and then have a unified. Very powerful voice in Washington. Yeah. There's a in terms of adjusting our thinking in our, you know, our conception of winter. There's a quote in your story that I wanted to read because I thought it was so telling about how our attitudes towards winter are evolving or are going to have to evolve. And you know, it's it's coming from the place of you know, it used to feel like you could count on great snow in a place like like Tahoe. But you talk to a longtime skier in Tahoe named Jeremy Benson who says I've stopped trusting weather forecasts and predictions, and I don't hang as much emotional energy on how much snow we're gonna get until I see how it plays out. Now, you just have to really appreciate when it's good because it's not a sure thing, and that just seems to change the whole equation. I think for people who are thinking about skiing as a winter activity as this this great pastime this mountain pastime. I don't think it's gonna slip away into the night. I think when people start to see some of the truly devastating winters. I mean, you know, you can look back in the Sierras back over the last seven years or so you had four extreme winter drafts. You know, just that little ribbon. Snowed-out squad alley the the some resorts, not even opening. You know, that's going to become more common. No matter what for the next few decades, that's going to become more common. And there I feel it'll hit a critical point where people like Jeremy and millions of others are like and Nuff what we gotta do like, the skiers the I know the skiers that I- skeeve without Jackson Hole after college. And and all over the west they're not just going to sit down and be like, oh, y'all ride my mountain bike now, you know, skiing's dawn, I I don't see that. But it is it's it's like climbing like skiing a few of these kind of lifetime sports that people get so surfing's another. They get so tach to it becomes part of their identity. And when I worked at powder, we used to say, you know, our readers are people that when they're cocktail party. They introduce themselves as a skier. That's what I do. I'm a skier. And that doesn't just go away. So we haven't hit that critical point yet. They're still some great winters. But one of real trout hits, you know. And really see some heavy heavy winter rain just that winter thunderstorms. You just think you're like what is going on? You know, maybe that's enough to wake people up, but I fear that might be too late, and we need to step on the gas a little bit little bit earlier. So it sounds like your kind of your prescription for what needs to happen is political advocacy inactivity. Is that is that about right absolutely in that really just comes again. This is all coming from the scientists. And from the scientists the change needs to happen in literally like the next ten years. The last IPCC report that came out, and if we don't reduce emissions dramatically in eleven years, then we are looking at really devastating effects of climate change by twenty forty you know, it's it's, you know, pardon the pun, but it's a climate change is a snowball in kind of thing the less we do. Now, it's not like a one to one ratio of what will have to deal with later. It's like a one to fifty ratio of what will have to deal with later. Certain things like the permafrost in North America in the Canadian Arctic when that thaws it releases methane, which is twenty three times more potent a insulating gas as compared to see too. And there is millions of tons of up in the permafrost. There is no stopping it. Once that thoughts, and that will warm this plan at many times more than humans ever did. And there's nothing you can do so tipping points. Like that are what keep me up at night and keep me working on this. I feel like I don't like scaring people because tends to make people do nothing. And also, and I also like to where the head of the reporter and not the advocate. I like to report on the advocates. But again coming from science, they're saying, here's your time line. What are you gonna do? Well, let seems like a good place to stop and gives people a lot to think about I think so thanks very much for coming on the podcast Puerto. It was great to have you. Thanks. Greg is good. Good to talk to you. Thanks

"Of the water brings to the to the mountains and the way that storms hit them the types of storms that hit them coastal ranges or simply melting out faster than other places. It's also interesting and kind of tragic in the world of climate science that higher elevations are warming faster than lower elevations winter is warming faster than summer and nights are warming faster than daytime which spells the perfect storm for snow making it's not for snow making which is kind of the big adaptation policy the most resorts counting on so at any rate. But this year is the back snow making these ears are also interesting in the this year round farming in California and back east and in most parts of the west Wyoming, Utah Montana. The the skier is are not fighting farmers and ranchers for water rights in the middle of the winter. You know that that's all frozen. And that's that's kind of not happening in wintertime, but in California, that's not the case in that. And that battle goes on all year, round, water, scarcity. I should use get worse in that challenge to find water for snow making. It's a tremendous amount of waters. Get for tricky. Yeah. You say you have stat in here that more than ninety percent of ski resorts in the US now rely on manmade snow to open basically to open before Christmas and stay open the spring, which I mean, I knew ski resorts made snow, but that's pretty wild. I didn't realize how many resorts were reliant and to what extent. Yeah. I mean and seventy years ago, there wasn't a single ski resort in America that had snow making and there were twice as many ski resorts as there are now they were all existing on natural snow. No. And now the not. So the truth is is that the ski industry has been adapting to climate change since the nineteen forties. Or excuse me since the nineteen fifties when I know making facilities, so. It's pretty well in very unknowingly Recica Jesus. Couple more bed winters this year. A couple more next thing, you know, they're making snow every single day. I wanted to ask the way that we characterize the recent swings in weather that we've seen in winter the past several years is a Radic. We say winter weather is more Radic because it's not necessarily getting warmer year-over-year. You know, there's not less snow every single year than there was the year before that and this past season is a perfect example of that where it just went crazy in February and March, but the long term projections when you look at like fifty sixty years out show, warmer, temperatures Leszno cover less snowpack. So can you just talk a bit about that? I mean, I think that's difficult for people to reconcile when you talk about level warming, and how ski resorts are doing things to kind of hedge against, you know, these warmer winters, and then we look, and we see that squaw, for instance, has decided to stay open into July this year because of how much. Snow? They got. Yeah. It's it's very tricky. And it's it's very hard to talk about climate change in in the mountains after a huge winter like this one but climate change works in doesn't even work in decades. It's really every twenty five years every fifty years every one hundred years where predictions are getting more and more accurate. So it happens in step changes. And what you're looking at is what is the progression? Over the last thirty years. What is the progression of the last three hundred years, and that progression is very clear since nineteen seventy you've seen a million square miles of spring snowpack disappear from the northern hemisphere a million square miles. I mean that is looking down at earth with the satellite image, the maximum snow extended winter in the nineteen seventies versus now, there's. A big chunk missing. And it's receding back towards the polls. When you look at climate change, you know, you just look at the warmth, you know, California. You know, that's warmed nearly two degrees since nineteen fifty. I mean that rate is insane. But again, if you look at last year, the your four year before that, you're not gonna see that much. See kinda have to look at these big historical leaves and the climate models that jump out fifty one hundred two hundred years into the future to to really see the see the trends. And then what you get in between is climate variability. And this is the one of the favourite terms of folks like Vail resorts will not say climate change. They'll only say climate variability, and that is accurate to a certain extent part of climate change. When you add heat to the atmosphere, you're adding. Energy to the system if you had energy card's gonna go faster, if you had energy to the weather systems of the world, they're going to be more severe and that results in the very accurate forecast of there will be more extreme snowstorms in the future. But there will be fewer overall snowstorms in future. And and if you wanna get, you know, specifics about the Sierra the Sierra Nevada in they're looking at in the state of projected ten point eight to Greece Fahrenheit of warming under higher mission scenario. That could shorten this year Nevada snow season by over two months and eliminated altogether at lower elevations. That's that's looking you know, where we almost twenty twenty. That's like an eighty year eighty year kind of prediction there. So it is tricky to to talk about your over year. But there's a snow scientists in Switzerland that I interviewed that actually did study on this. And he said the human brain capable of accurately recalling Titian snowfall maximum of five years into the past. So beyond five years. Everyone's like, I think in the eighties. It was sort of this much that much, but it's very inaccurate. They're saying, and that's when you gotta go to the to the pros and see with their study plots of measured. You reminded me of something I wanted to bring up with you, which is some of these resorts. And as well as the national scary as association are essentially, they're in the camp of people who are denying climate change, essentially, which is odd. I mean when you see not just the models, which these people are well aware of but also the initiatives that they're undertaking. What do you what is the benefit you think of denying a changing climate? If you're in the position of a

"Is interesting about looking at the ski industry. And ski resorts is that they to me seem like kind of the Canaries in the coal mine for this there at these high elevations, they are fully dependent on snow. Good snow. And so I want to kind of throw that back at you and ask what do you feel like we can learn from this whole phenomenon of changing winters by looking at ski resorts. Well, they're, you know, they're two populations that are seeing massive widespread visible change coming out of global warming. And one of them is people who are living at sea level, like the people in the Maldives that are watching water come up their shores, and and put their much of their country underwater, and and the other population is people who are living in snow whether it's up in the Arctic or that higher L. Ovations and skiers are part of that latter population, and they hold a very important place in in this whole evolution that. We're that. We're watching roll out. You know? I mean, even Jesus said it in the bible, people don't believe anything until they see it. So he had to show them a miracle. Well, known believed climate change until they started seeing things like superstorm, sandy. And and. You know, the hurricanes of just Amal the US and extreme weather and whatnot. But really the people who are really seeing it are skiers and people who live in the mountains as you just watch this snow line move up hill, and you watch the maximum snow extent in the northern hemisphere, just shrink back toward the poles. Every year. I'm it's just surprising that most of the skiing population, and certainly very few in the ski industry have stepped up to that challenge. Yeah. You're talking about an affluent educated population over fourteen million people in America alone that are truly passionate about their sport and the environment and whatnot. And yet, they're voice in Washington at this point is negligible. And it's it's it's unfortunate. And then there's others like the folks from protect our winters, and and folks Aspin, and you know, a lot of people actually sort of a few people at resorts across the country are being vocal. But there's only a few kind of business wide leaders. And it's unfortunate. Of course, we're hoping to turn that around. Yeah. So what are some of the things that resorts are actually doing right now to either plan for or hedge against warmer winters. Well, there's there's a lot of things operational efficiency has been happening for the last ten fifteen years. And it's it's terrific. It's sort of recycling programs, burn biodiesel, change, light bulbs, and and make buildings more efficient make snow making more efficient. Absolutely. You know, terrific initiatives as long as they are hand in hand with something that will actually slow climate change, those initiatives are something that sure if every single person business on earth, did it we could solve climate change. But operational efficiency is sort of a double edged sword it saves the resort money that makes the resort more profitable or a little bit more streamlined. However. It doesn't really put a dent into climate change the way that that it needs to. So what a bunch of advocacy groups like protect our winters and few others have been pushing for is to use their industry used their collective business voice to kind of like push for climate change legislation. We're talking about stopping burning fossil fuels across the nation and pushing for renewables, and it requires legislation to do it at that level. And to do it at the pace required. It requires legislation policy change national policy change following through the Paris accords and whatnot for skiers individual skiers. You know, they sort of need someone to lead them. I I think they're waiting for that call her perfectly willing to put their dollars their voices in their vote. Votes in the right spot. But it's it's hard to coalesce around a few skiers. It's much easier to coalesce around a trade group or a big corporation like Aspen ski co. So that's that's really what we're kind of hoping will happen from an actual business standpoint. A lot of these resorts are rolling out all of these off season and warmer, weather activities and infrastructure, and to me that seems kind of telling you know, that's telling indicator of what these resorts are thinking about in terms of trying to diversify their revenue. Streams trying to appeal to more people trying to get more people to the resorts when it's not winter when it's summer he talk a little bit about what resorts are actually doing in kind of the short term to like I said to hedge against this these warmer winters. They're trying to you know, they're trying to make up with their losing in in the winter. I it's it's devastating low snow years just in California alone. You're losing over a million skier visits hundred million dollars and an economic. Value added twelve hundred fewer jobs in the industry. You know, California has the second biggest cut of economic impacts or in the country in terms of skiing in the in the economy, and it's you know, one point four billion economic value. Add it's it's a really big deal when the low snow year comes along, and what police is like squad valley heavily like everyone all the way down to big bear in the San Bernardino. So they're doing they're pushing for off season activities like at big bear, the do above the boom where they take unders of people up the chairlift July forest to look at the big bear lake firework show. I think he's said it was the second biggest in southern California. So it's quite a show that makes him cash. They've got right across the way. It snow summit. They've got a huge bark. The only lifts respond. Bargain, so the California, and that's a real economic generator there and all of this, by the way, first of all began in two thousand twelve when the forest service allowed for season us at many ski resort properties. But Secondly, there's nothing wrong. These are businesses their bottom line is their bottom line. Their job is to be profitable. There's nothing wrong with that is just hand in hand with adaptation initiatives, like these adapting to warmer climates by putting in roller coasters like they're doing squad valley in the near future. Putting in you know, things that will out the business. Besides snow is totally fine. But you have to do mitigation at the same time. You have to do the advocacy do the hard hitting political work because you know, as devastating as a lot of these studies are right alongside those studies are findings that if we can stay at one point five see the Paris accords mandate. If we can do that you're looking at way more ski areas in the lower forty eight that remain climate reliable that. Stay open through the end of the century. And isn't that the idea like isn't that the, you know, even in terms of business and profit and whatnot? I believe that's what we're shooting for here. So in the short term short, you got you got a buffer that bottom line. But in the long term, you also have to be doing everything in your power to get climate-friendly. Legislators into office pass this legislation cut emissions and slow climate change as quickly as possible. Right. So in this story, we asked you to focus on ski resorts in the Sierras in California. And what makes the Sierras a unique or pertinent case study in terms of understanding the effects of climate change. I mean, this year's are interesting in the same way that the cascades are and then some of the some of the resorts back east as well. They're close to the water and there. Naturally going to feel the effects of the warmth of

"Welcome everyone to the wild west podcast, where we talked to the people shaping how we think about nature, the outdoors and California's wild places, I'm San Francisco Chronicle travel editor Greg Thomas, and this pot is a place where I interview adventure, athletes and environmental advocates and movers and shakers who are defining and redefining what we do. When we go outdoors today, I'm excited to talk to journalist and author porter FOX Portas, a former editor at powder magazine, and in two thousand thirteen he published a book called deep the story of skiing and the future of snow. The book paints an eye opening picture of what climate change is doing snowfall across the northern hemisphere, which is where most of the top skiing destinations in the world are so anyone who is thought about skiing Lake Tahoe. In the last decade will tell you winter weather in the Sierras has become more Radic recently. Some years are Super Dry and some years like this past winter have seen record snowfall. And so it's tough to know what to make it are these big weather swings. The direct result of climate change. Are they happening? Elsewhere. What will the future look like I don't think it's gonna slip away into the night. I think when people start to see some of the truly devastating winters. I mean, that's going to become more common. No matter what for the next few decades, that's going to become more common. And there I feel it'll hit a critical point where people like Jeremy and millions of others are like, and what are we gonna do? I wanted to see if we could get to the bottom of what's happening to winter in ways that we can really see and understand. So I reached out to porter and we worked on an in depth article that lays out what skiers and ski resorts doing to plan for and hedge against this reality of warmer winters. We're going to see going forward we focused on skiing because to some degree ski areas are the Canaries in the coal mine. They're gonna show us what the future of a warmer earth. Really looks like and how we might have to adapt pornos atoll. Done about this issue and his article really change the way you think about what's in store for our winters in the decades to come. You can find the article on chronicle dot com. It's called the future of skiing, California, quick note on the podcast before we get into it porter night recorded our phone conversation independently of each other. So you'll notice the audio quality shifts depending on who speaking we'll get into my conversation with Puerto FOX a moment. But first this brief message. Hey, guys, this Joe gear Foley, the chronicle senior political writer, inviting you to listen to my podcast, it's called it's all political. And we've got some great guests, and we got some longtime political veterans like Senator Dianne Feinstein to entertainers like Chelsea handler, just get into politics, and sometimes people even wrap on the show, sometimes Feinstein even wraps in the show. Well, maybe that's not true. But you should check it out anyways. His no matter where you find your podcasts. It's all political. All right. We're back now onto my conversation with author and journalist porter FOX. Hey, Puerto thanks very much for coming on the podcast to have you. Thanks for having me, Greg. So we are here to talk today about essentially the future of skiing, but also the future of winter. That's what's really, I think at stake here. And at the core of this article that you wrote for us. And so you you I started writing about the future of winter back in the first article I saw was in two thousand thirteen it looks like you've kept tabs on the development since then I'm wondering how has your outlook on this phenomenon changed since you first started digging into it eight years ago or so? It was pretty surprising that after at that point fifteen years almost twenty years and ski writing journalism based out of checks and all that. I hadn't connected the dots. As many head not between climate change and melting snow packs around the world, and when I got into deep the first book that I wrote about it in those articles which were excerpt from deep it was a real revelation, and honestly, pretty terrifying. I some of the statistics coming across outs fact, checking in like five six seven times because it didn't seem possible that what climatologists were saying is that there's a good chance that there will not be any permanent snowpack in the mid latitude regions by the end of the century. Basically that includes all the lower forty-eight and Europe. No, more glaciers. Nomar ice Europe, not much snow in the ground at any elevation under seven thousand feet, or so I was pretty shocking to consider looking at Brown and green mountains in the middle of winter instead of those ic- Rockies that were used to looking at so at any rate that was that that same revelation. Unfortunately, tin us to sort of compound as further studies and further refined climate models hint a much sharper. And unfortunately, it much more grim future for the future of snow and of winter, which sure we'll talk about later has a lot of sort of domino effect of natural disasters that follows closely on -til, you know, one of the things I think is
