"Hey history lovers. I'm mike rosen walled with retro pod. A show about the past rediscovered nelson mandela's extraordinary. Mary life is filled with unanswerable questions. What would he have accomplished around the world. If he hadn't spent twenty seven years behind bars would the course of apartheid in south africa which he fought so vehemently against been halted decades earlier and and what his epic love affair with his wife winnie have survived they met at a bus stop in soweto south africa she was twenty two and as the nation's first black female social -ocial worker her life had already taken off. He was forty married and had three children. He was fixated on a seemingly only impossible goal to end south africa's systemic policies of racism a week later. They got indian food together. He was smitten. He wrote in his biography. I cannot say for certain if there is such a thing as love at first sight but i do know that the moment moment i first glimpsed winning. I knew that i wanted to have her as my wife mandela divorced his first wife and then he and when he got married the relationship was passionate. They held hands publicly and went to jazz clubs occasionally. They fought though about the little things other couples oral about every day like when nelson tried to teach winnie how to drive they were emerging as the ultimate power our couple powerful voices against apartheid in south africa and racism around the world but their happiness and their power was short lived a few years after their wedding mandela was convicted of a treasonous plot to violently overthrow the government and sentenced to life in prison meanwhile when he faced her own struggles as she fought a racist political system she was was arrested harassed and forbidden for most social contact in one thousand nine hundred thousand nine. She began serving an eighteen month prison sentence in solitary confinement. She was tortured in her memoir. She wrote the whole experience is so terrible because i had left little little children at home in bed and i had no idea what had happened to them but throughout all the pain both emotional and physical when he stood by her husband in his absence she took up leading the resistance against apartheid she fought for her husband's release in the end though it was a marriage that survived prison but not freedom in one thousand ninety moments after mandela's release iconic hanako photos were taken of him. His right hand raised clenched in a fist. His left hand claps when he's hand the appeared. Still i'm very much in love but the cameras didn't capture the toll that mandela's long imprisonment took on the couple they they were only allowed to see each other during brief prison visiting hours the great depth of their early. Love affair drifted off when he wrote in in her memoir. I had so little time to love him when he also got caught up in political scandals and was even connected with kidnapping in murder she was unfaithful and she didn't deny it two years after mandela was freed. They separated four years later are they divorced. Winnie madikizela-mandela died earlier. This year and mandela always is acknowledged. His ex wife's strength. When he announced their separation. In nineteen ninety-two he conceded that his estranged wife had suffered greatly early and praised her efforts fighting apartheid while he was in prison. He said her tenacity reinforced my personal respect. Don't love and growing affection. I'm mike rosen walled. Thanks for listening special.

But the number is six seven eight six five three two zero two zero and again six eight. Eight three two zero two zero excellent. You guys should we jump right into this? Let's talk about. We're new. So when we look at the mini adventures of Winnie the Pooh, we do have to go back to the movie, the many adventures of Winnie the Pooh, which was released in nineteen seventy seven. Now, this movie was a kind of an anthology movie in a way that was derived from three previous when the poo shorts from the sixties and the seventies, the first one is and Winnie the Pooh, and the Honey tree, the second one is Winnie the Pooh and the blustery day. And the second one is Winnie. The Pooh and tigger too. That would be the third one, right? Yep. The second one, okay? Now, I'm not even gonna try to get my way out of that one. I made a mistake. Okay. Now, here's here's was very interesting. This movie that came out in nineteen seventy seven this, this movie, actually is, is the final feature film. I don't know if this was a feature film, or I mean, I guess it was a feature film. But even though it's made up of previous shorts, but they came up with, you know, new sequences to stitch together all three of these. So basically, we can say this is a Winnie. The Pooh pair of pants stitch together by three shorts. Here's what's cool. Walt Disney actually was alive for the release of the first short. He was. He was a consultant in was alive, while it was the second one was being developed. And so this movie in nineteen seventy seven actually was something that while Disney was involved in. I think that's really cool. I like when either PU like the movie. Yeah, I do too. It's printing in, of course, is based on a Millns books and Disney stylized them and made it their own. A lot of great voice actors, including sterling Holloway, and poll, say shoot, I forgot him. I know that when I'm not on Mike anyway. So, and of course, the Sherman brothers wrote some of the great songs too. I'm not sure that they re every single song, but they obviously wrote quite a few of them, including the theme song. But the songs in this moving is our songs that we actually here on the attraction, which is a rather blustery day. The wonderful thing about tickers Heff lumpen whistles, and when the rain rain rain came down down down. So this movie comes out, Winnie. The Pooh starts to find, you know, gain some some popularity around this kind of new incarnation, even though it's been around in the shorts like the fact that he got a movie really started to, you know, merchandising and all that stuff. There becomes a a, a surge in his popularity so and then as far as merchandising, I would say that there was another like wave of that in the two thousands with the classic PU. Oh, absolutely. But I don't know if that was really Disney that was more than a Milne stuff. I think it was Disney was it did they have, I think it was their think they're lying. Yeah. Okay. But nerves go lower. Yes and nursery. Classic pooh. Absolutely. So, of course, then as something grows popular as we've seen with frozen, especially Disney wants to put it in a park. So we had this nineteen Eighty-three completely complete redo fantasyland right before we got our new fantasy land in while DisneyWorld Disneyland had a new fantasy land. And a lot of the there was a lot of talk about let's put a Winnie the Pooh attraction in new fantasy land and people really thought I was going to happen. But eventually, what ended up happening was Pinocchio took up that new spots, which is also a great story. It is a great story. Right. And I wished that DisneyWorld habit. No kiddingly. Favorite disney. Enemies. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. I guess I knew that I have that pack. That's true. Very cute. Going to say boy crush puppet crush. No. I also have a little. You like vintage doll thing for two dollars. And I looked it up. It was like forty dollars on EBay. Nice goodbye. I know. It's so by a lot of people actually think that this is the Pinocchio going instead of Winnie. The Pooh in nineteen Eighty-three fantasy land is related to the planned nineteen Eighty-four release of the film. So the big surprise there, so then as they were started. They started to develop make he's Toontown in nineteen Eighty-three or opening in nineteen ninety three they started thinking, hey, you know, let's bliss do a Winnie the Pooh, he's a cartoon. Let's do it there. So they started talking about doing a flat spinner ride where you got into the honeypots and did basically the teacup thing that didn't work out. Eventually that real estate went to Roger rabbit cartoon spin. So you spend in there, but it's a it's a completely different world traditional dark ride certainly not a flat spare. Then that brings us which I'm kinda glad didn't I'm glad that both of those didn't work out because what did work out it just fits so well in my doing spoiler country, it just fits really Disneyland. It makes more sense over there. It really helped especially between nineteen. Eighty three and, and the opening of splash or in the opening Winnie. The mini eventually Winnie the Pooh in Disneyland's, you had splash mountain open. So now you had this kind of critters it turned out really well for Disney. So finally, then in, in the magic kingdom as this resurgence in popularity happened again in the in the nineties, we ended up with this decision to put it in the fantasy land, now the very unpopular part of that decision was that replace, Mr. toads wild ride. And there were, there were protests, there rice Ray on tests, and people like, you know, gathering outside and letting Disney though that they weren't happy about it outside the right was in anything like this neyland one. Yeah. It was. No. I think it was exactly like mister toad. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, yeah. You had two different to two different trash that you could go on and one of them went to hell. And it was just super all cut out. Yeah, I do too. And I'm glad that if we want to get on Mr. toes, ride we can go over to Disneyland. Yeah. And see that. So that really catches up on, you know, there's always so much detailed. But I will say this. I looked at I looked at the track blueprints for mister toads wild ride from educating them. And, and when the mini adventures of Winnie the Pooh, and there are no way similar. So they really did gut this thing. Sometimes I wondered if they just use the same track yet. And yes frozen kind of the same track. Now that makes sense with the with the flu m- ride with the river ride or whatever you be going to be a lot more difficult to. Yeah. Yeah. So this was say retrain that track. But I don't I think it's just this is less of a retro engineered. Yeah. Less of a retrofit for sure. So yeah, so let's talk about Madge since we focus on DisneyWorld talk about some secrets and of the of in of the mini adventures of Winnie. The Pooh in the magic kingdom Yana you hit the first one go. Oh. I mean, okay or she doesn't want to be for it. Do you want to say that way? You do alls, Jeremy hit it of well, okay hundred acre would treat. So this is this is that tree. You see right in front of the attraction today is just right off there to the left of the two entrances. And what is interesting as it was originally this tree was originally part of Poos playful spot, which was a rubberized playground toddler area playground for toddlers, and it was just right across the way from where the Pooh ride is now where the tree is now that location, currently is seven mine. Yeah. But back then it was the twenty sorry, twenty thousand leagues under the sea. So that was the lagoon from that attraction. So when that attraction shutdown people were kind of sad about that too popular and beloved attraction. But when that got filled. And paved over and this, this will. No, no. So. So this is before new fantasy land. Okay. And they just went ahead and put in this playground. Right. Across the way from from the Winnie the Pooh. Right. And so just as a little oh, Mayes inside of this tree Poos house. They have when you go in there and look, you can see this little in Dench, in this little Divet, almost like a carving, right inside and it is of anonymous. Oh, cool. Yeah. It doesn't make as much sense now like knowing the history of the tree. Right. You would know right? But it doesn't make as much sense now this far removed from it people that weren't around at the time that the attraction was going, so and it's good to note that there is an adult entrance and a child insurance to view. The not. I have to get on your role in. Happen to miss our last episode. I've demonstrated that the wrong way for an adult to enter into. Okay. And then the, the next one is an AL's house in the ride because this took over mister toads wild ride. There is a there's a painting on the floor 'cause everything's all blustery blown around and one of the paintings has fallen off the wall, and it is, Mr. toad handing over the deed to so that's one of them. And then yeah, this, this is a lot of tributes to Mr. toads wild ride because of the uproar that it 'cause. Yes, yeah. What was what's interesting is? I'm sorry, it's the Walt Disney. I'm sorry. Then there's a this one is a not sorry, I think this is a sorry, sorry, because this, there's a portrait of our, to you're right in which he's got a straw hat. And he's got these handlebar this handlebar moustache and people say, this is a tribute to Mr. Winky who in the wind in the willows in the in the. The wind in the willows the adventures of Mr. toad cartoon, he is the, the secret leader of the motorcycle gang the gang of weasels that were that tricked towed into trading his estate for the motorcar. Oh, so they're saying our will tricked him. Yeah. They're saying that they got weasel out of that. That is a little not to yes. Okay. Mister toad got weasel out of this thing and are not sorry in the painting on the floor is on the right like kind, not as soon as you get in the middle near the end this, this room of allocating of Mr. toad hitting the towel. Okay. I think he's on the left. No. While the next one is on the F. Okay. Okay. Is she is going to say, oh. Toes all the way we make fun. So right next to that painting is the painting of PU greeting Moley from when in the willows and Mr. toge watt. Right. So sorry. Not sorry. Sorry, sorry. Not sorry, but we're friends. No sorry. Not sorry. Let's be friends on the left near the beginning. You could miss it watch. It got it now feeling you can tell the people about the tribute, it's not in the notes. But what about the, the, the other tribute to Mr. toad over the haunted mansion? Oh, yeah. The graveyard. Terry. So when you're leaving the are not the park. When you're leaving the ride there's a little pets Metairie. Let me think about this on the left that if it's near the well, hold on when Irma came through got knocked down, so it might be closer to the front. But it's I'm pretty sure it's the back of the pets Matiri you can see the little statue is like a statue of toad that was out in front of the right right in front of toad hall was the traction, and that's at haunted mansion. Don't look for it at the pet cemetery in the mini adventures Phut, because you won't find either don't do it. People don't waste your time. You know what this is like travel tips? We're one of those podcasts now we're going to give you some travel tips. Don't waste your time. I mean do waste your time if you're at the haunted mansion don't waste your time to go with hidden Mickey's hit us so outside at the at whose house, there is an int- indent into the soil packed in the roots inside his house. So I don't know exactly where that is. When you are. Yeah, when you're inside, whether you take the big entrance or the tiny entrance when you're looking, you know, you see, like you're in a tree, but at the some of the root systems or the cracks of the tree are actually packed in with some of that red soil. And there's like just three little you know that classic three circle there, just in dented in there and it's just a nice little sunken in dented hidden. Mickey. And then behind Poos house at the big insurance. Under the awning. There is a hidden Mickey in the stucco the mud like the. Yeah. Though, so in dented and then. Sorry. The near the the gopher in the wind days in the guy that published. Yeah. There is a leaf production on the page and it's like floating and it's like a little leaf in its Ann Mckee this nice, and then also the same scene. There's a radish signers a little Nikki at rabbits, Carden. Yes. So these are those little signs of show, where different vegetables or planted. I feel like I've seen that one. It's in the seed packet, right? Yes. Like, when he put the seed packet, on, like a sign mistake. The minimum. Yeah, it looks. Yes, it looks like right. It's not lettuce. It's just like the Bush and has some radishes, and then three of them together to make a kind of like an Mickey Mouse clubhouse all fruit trees. Yeah. Yep. Exactly like. Yeah. So man, why, why don't we talk about the other incarnations of this attraction? In other parks. Like we said it eventually came to Disneyland in two thousand three. And fueled. I didn't even realize that was furious first trip to Disneyland. No, not three. Okay. In two thousand four Fianna had her first now. Born in two thousand four it was, I was born in two thirty. Okay. It was my fourth birthday. I went to two thousand seven okay. Yeah. So it wasn't that old my whole point. Was it wasn't that old? I was offering details. I shouldn't have. Please forgive me. Can we still not sorry, let celery Father's Day in two days? Okay. So this, this is an interesting one. This, this is one that, that when you when you ride through. The first thing I noticed number one is that it loads up outdoor. So this is in critter country. This took over the country bear jamboree. And in Disneyland shut that down. So another another unpopular opinion, I guess, the Pooh, just come in, and just evicts people. So you there's this outdoor loading committee owl picture isn't so. No, it's not. I mean, they clearly have this imminent domain. No, not at all. Not at Disney World. Got. So we'll go see toad at. Yeah. Disneyland. Oh, that's right. Yeah. Come see bears that doesn world. I don't know why we're saying it like that. But you get into the hives that's what that's what the ride vehicles are here. There'd be hives kind of honeypots. No. These are be hives and Disneyland. Yes. Very cute. And there's like a little kind of. I think there's, like Heff Lumper. Whatever kind of sit on the back of it. Yeah. We'll tiny baby Heff lump catenaccio. Very what I notice those is clear that they had a very big building to work in, because rather than rather than there being a lot of pages around, and then a lot of short little rooms, this imagine all of the scenes from Walt DisneyWorld from educating them being there, but maybe rearranged, in fact, I think it was rearranged I think a win blustery day to the rain rain to take bigger to south whose house to have lumps and then like a birthday party scene, rather than just the rains overseeing birthday party scene. Yes. But and then everybody, and then there's a bunch of the cutout things from like, Mr. toad our presence to, but they're really just piles of hype. They love their cutouts over their land, but they this, this really doesn't have rooms, I guess, is my point this really just flows from one to the other think, because they had, they had basically theater, you know they had a right, existing big building. And so you can tell they're trying to get your round a larger space or they're trying to take advantage of a larger space felt good. I, I kinda like that. I thought it was really cool. Now, the I cannot remember the name of, like, I think the buffaloes name is buff and there's a bear, and there's a deer moose a moose that's right now, those are in and I can't recall their names. But those, you can see them currently on the wall in a country bear jamboree in Disney World. And of course, they were present in the original attraction in Disney. Land. And so, when you when you're going through, and I forget, which scene is. I think it's at the end of the rain seen. Okay. When you look. Oh, yeah, I'm not even sure you look up and see them. I think you have to take a flash photography. But anyway, they left those guys in there. I don't know if that's where they always have been or they move them to that location. But when you look up, you can see them there. They have nothing to do with the ride. They're not designed to pull your attention or even speak into the narrative. They're just there as a. Yeah. It's and that's a blatant tribute like tribute. I think that's really interesting. It is, and in two thousand five it opened in Hong Kong Disneyland, and I gotta say, I couldn't tell the difference between. Yeah. Disneyworld and this one of with Hong Kong and Shanghai. Surprisingly Shanghai just newer look like had better technology couple bigger more animatronic things, I think. In the bigger rooms. Yeah. And then. Keeping them the billon like the things that who is a frayed of the. There's like a couple added yangs on there in that room. Yeah. And yeah. I think you get a bigger have longer track, and you get along better. Yeah away. We should back up real quick. When you go into Hong Kong, you look in that. In the in the Heff lump, and weasel room. You actually see Louisville. Thanks. You. You see who. A psychedelic tigger Pooh. So in Disney World where you on congas ni this in Hong Kong, where you see a tigger pounce on poo, and he's got him pinned down impose in his, his nightgown nightcap. Yeah. You see that same thing. But it's in the dream sequence. And it's it's psychedelic tigger right with all these different colors. It's really fun. And you also see PU in the basket of the hot air balloons. Yeah. Well, there's an extra. No, I guess that's not extra hot air balloon. No. So, so with the absence of the, the hotter balloon that were used to which is on the ground in that you kind of your cargoes into the basket and out the other side with the absence of that in front of you, it when I watched the right through it made more sense that those, you know, there's big watering cans, like at the very end of the room in front of that entrance. They are there. The rain rain rain ones that are kind of putting on the rain for that room, and then notice I've never noticed that before. And then once you get that little room with the rain streaking down, it becomes more of a well, yeah. You do. See the that wakes up at that point in Walt Disney World. But, but anyway, I, I don't know to me, it was just a lot clear, the little gag. I guess. Yeah. And then so then in Shanghai it opened in twenty sixteen. And as we said, it's pretty much the same thing, Amy spotted that. And the Heff lump room a couple of different there's, like a all's that lit up that said one to three that the number of Shanghai. I mean Hong Kong. Yeah. Yeah. So there's just like they're identical extra room. Wiesel's and Heff limps in there. What we can't talk about this without without talking about something, an attraction. That's technically not the many adventures of winning the PU. But it is very similar, and very dissimilar in a lot of ways. It's so advance it is a it is Poos, Honey hunt. This is what I expected, Shanghai. Yeah. And I think we kind of I think I kind of lead you to believe falsely last week that it was in Shanghai. No. But it is. But it is in Tokyo. And as cool, it is cool. This is a track list ride where just wide open spaces. So you do get that blustery day. You get you do. Get the rent rainy day you do. Get the Hager hopping. Yeah, it's just these massive spaces where where you're just circling around in there like pushing you up in certain scenes, and pulling you out and. Fiefs steam. Yeah. Yeah. Or like that very strange emperor, anglin ride in and see roller Landau weird. Never been a liquor sense to me. I was so happy to see the penguins in real life. But I'm just to go through it was like stand in line for all of it was just like Londono silo Pinal it was a penguin, fever dream is what? But the but the Winnie the Pooh on is not it is awesome. And it really. Yeah, it's insane. There was another example of our of our minds are bad miming to each other. Deleted understanding them. What makes the mind bat? Is it the is it the listener, or is it the mine itself? I think maybe the minds I understand you guys most of the time. But, like sometimes like that one seemed very frantic to me, and I was like. Talking about this. I wanted to. We're all on the same page. Now, though, this though. He's pulling Fiona with a rope, and she is unaffected. He's not a pen was talk about where we can find Winnie. The Pooh and friends around Walt Disney. Angry. Yeah. That's the obvious one for sure right there, the last of the attraction. And it has during the different party sweet Lord here. So cute. One of my favorite things was the home in Lynn when e or is like my favorite, I think he's the cutest, then he had like a little mask, and he dressed up like a B. No a clown. Yeah. Client had like a masquerade masks on still right? Yeah. And like I've ran up to him. And again, become can heaps happy. He left out. Most of it was really. Love your somewhat. Yes, Christmas outfits are cute house. Our house. Sweaters com. That's only met them actually, we've met them if you. Yeah. Yeah. The Halloween really cute. Yes. I love that. Now here's one that we cannot speak into at all because we've never done this. Right. That is. I think it's like breakfast, isn't it is breakfast. Maybe even lunch. I don't know if they're all the time or not. But I definitely know breakfast. And that is at the Crystal Palace. I'd love to go. Yeah. It's just love breakfast. I love breakfast. And not at record buff as what I love breakfast, buffets. I don't like buffet. But I don't like eggs off of a buffet who. Yeah, you're right feeling I'm not a big buffet secretly. Yes. I love eating at buffets, I just is something that I don't allow myself to like, because I would just go down this big dark road. Trashy whole of gross food. Live there. Drew isn't a I thought it was not thought it was. I think it's like serve like the thought of as tables in. Hey, some of people that I've seen on Twitter and Facebook lettuce, no tweet Addis angrily at hey, jerky. Don't own nothing dot com. Com. This ports ports fake Disney news website. We're Disney dot hip, hop is available. We should buy that if it is, well, it's not now shoot never mind. Okay. Which I didn't cut up part out than its tax. But. But again, the parties events mean parting s. Putty in fund, the characters all their dredges up like. People. Now the reason I put this is because they're in the parade. Which is cute. And they're saying they're in their same there. They're screaming out Christmas, if I'm not mistaken, and this may no longer be the case. But I don't remember earlier on in the Christmas parade. There was a like a big like a PU house float. I can see why they discontinued. Available only during the Christmas party. Get your house flow. But I seem to remember that then it was really cute. It was kind of a wintery scene round Poos house. They all have scarves on. They're gonna go Caroline or something. Yeah. Cute. Then, of course, over in Epcot at the UK pavilion.

A industrial balance is a device with a train, either side, pivot point whatever substance to the no. The wait for is placed in one of the trays and then weights are placed on the other plate. These weights are labeled they get added until both sides. Get suspended at the same level on either side of the pivot point, the equality is the balance balancing our lives about establishing equilibrium between opposing forces in our lives, these can include things like family work and leisure activities. The common element is that these forces are all part of our relationships. Each of these attempts to achieve balance affects not just our lives. But the lives of others among the outside, forces affecting balance are things like health, money loss, and many other factors over, which we have little or no control each. Each of us has a different tolerance for the forces that we can work with and still maintain a balance in our lives. Some people seem to thrive on change. Others become very uncomfortable. If anything in their lives is out of line, extreme behavior can indicate that a person's life may be out of balance, if you or someone you know is almost always happy and contented in suddenly becomes angry or depressed. Much of the time, it's my indicate something may be causing chain balance like the ripples that occur when a rock gets dropped and water, this condition of being out balance might not be observable in your life.

Episode 615 Best Of Getting Great Growth In Business With Facebook Groups with Marc Mawhinney
"Everyone agrees taken makes everything better than marketing. This is the bacon podcast. You'll learn to ensure your marketing make your family even that Market online marketing social media tips and tell them know to help you bring more bacon home master of marketing Sizzle. Brian Basilico. This is the bacon podcast. Welcome everybody. I'm your host Brian Basilico. And this is the podcast where you learn to make your business Sizzle online. So are you ready to fry up some new business? Hey everybody. I've got a great guest in a friend. His name is Mark Winnie and Mark is a coach's job and the man has been a Content generating machine. So I wanted to introduce you to him and his methodology. So Mark, how you doing, man? Hey Brian, I'm doing good. So, how's life up in Canada? Home life is going very well. I can now get out of the igloo. It's getting to that time of year, you know two weeks of Summer coming up in Canada. Now, it's it's beautiful. I'm half very happy that song. Dude, so what I'd like to start out doing is getting people to know who is Mark. What's your background? And how did you get from where you were to where you are now, so can you tell us? Yeah, I mean my background the shortcomings version as I got into real estate right out of University, you know back when I was a spring chicken. I'm Twenty-One years old and build up my real estate business for over a decade throughout my twenties just work my you-know-what off and work work work and things grew and business was doubling every year and and things are going great. And I had a lot of you know highs and accesses at that time, but I also had my share of failures I had to business closures over, you know over that decade. Now one of them was really bad not that there's ever a good business closure but one of them had employees and it got messy cuz in my part of the world every single time, there's a business clothes that could be restaurant. It can be a bookstore or anything that a lot of people attacking. Business owner. Yeah, like it's their fault. They planned it right? Cuz that's what people plan to do open a business and closet. So I dealt with the slings and arrows of that but actually worked out well that, you know led me to coaches because I needed help to get back on my feet and I hired several coaches and and had mentors and really just fell in love with whole concept of coaching and that's what led me into coaching and now he's coaching for three years. So yeah, that's awesome. So Mark you you've really been like this content creation machine you started out with like a podcast today. I think it was on episode somewhere around 1:50 and then close to 400. And so you've built up some really really great basis on Facebook with two different Facebook groups. Can you talk about the evolution of how that happened and what they've done for your business? Yeah. I mean, I'm a huge fan of Facebook groups. I just I love them. So I have two main I have other groups for you know, my coaching programs and stuff smaller groups for the people that are dead. Ask the clients but I have two main groups. So I have my natural-born coaches pass gas Group, which you're a member of and that's for anyone who's been on my show. So I've got as a recording Us by 430 episodes and we've got three hundred and some people that are in that group. So that's that's one group the group that's larger and even more activity though, cuz it's open to any coaches or people interested in coaching is the coaching jungle and I believe you're you're a member in there as well. So thank you. So the coaching jungle groups the other one and we're up to almost 2,000 right now and that's happened really quickly roughly six seven months. It's grown without any paid advertising that's all organic and kind of word-of-mouth are so if anyone wants to check that one out, they could go to the coaching Jungle Juice con will direct you there. Awesome. So having these two groups in this podcast, how is this helped or affected your business? I think it's made it a lot easier to to group your tribe. Gather so Facebook's my playground. I mean some people are linked in people. I'm on there and you know, I've got 60,000 Twitter followers. So I'm fairly active on Twitter but really Facebook is my big box where I play and my personal profiles at that 5,000 cap that limit that you have the problem is if I was just talking to the personal profile of got people on their lot of coaches. Yeah, but there's also a lot of people doing other things that don't have any interesting coaching and those are my people that's my Niche I help coaches build their businesses. So it wouldn't get the same traction but by building up a community like the coaching jungle groups, a lot of people together who are my people, you know, and even if not saying that every single person is going to become a client obviously but a number of them have or they referred people over or at least I'm learning stuff right like everyday. I'm jotting down stuff. I'm learning in that group from the people in there. So I just like going forward with social media where it's so noisy with all the platforms and all the different ways that you can reach people. I think that these kind of tribes and groups are going to be even more important cuz it groups people similar to trust together rather than just be kind of scattered all over that platform. Yeah, totally makes sense. So from there. You've got all this traction all these people that you're talking to how hard is it to moderate thousands of people because you know, one of the things as a group moderator, you're always going to get those people just don't understand the rules want to constantly sell promote their stuff. I mean, how do you manage that? Yeah, there's one or two spammers on the internet at maybe three or four I will say with my group of the number of people for having almost 2,000. It's been very good so far now I just added three of men this week as a recording this so I got to a point where this has happened very rare, but rarely, but there's been a couple of cases where someone will send me a message and say Hey, FYI, Joe just put a bunch of porn on a thread, you know or something like some idiot post porn links or whatever wage. Maybe he was hacked or you know, maybe it was him. But for whatever reason he can't have that on there and I can't watch all the time cuz I'm busy with my clients and what the podcast and with everything else. So I did bring on Thursday and then and the cool thing there is it's three that I trust and there are people that I know they've always been active in the group one of them's in the UK so she's at a different time zone than I am. I'm I'm in a weird time zone in Atlantic Canada. I'm an hour past later than Easter. So she's four hours later than me. So it means if somebody decides to make it, you know, put a bunch of corn stuff up in the middle of the night when I'm suggesting chicken catch it. So overall what the really big thing for the coach and jungle why it's been so easy to manage up to this point is I've kind of had a no-nonsense policy around people selling and people spamming just cuz I've been in groups before they used to be good when I was in there is a member and then they just turned into spam Central and they're just bulletin boards, basically with people Throwing their their offers on there and their services and sell sell sell. So I think of those groups, I think what I just do the opposite of those and say what do I not like about them will do it different here wage. If you're a group and then on whatever platform you're in you have to really have that boots shined up and ready to go to boot people out. You have to let people know that you're not messing around because they will try to sneak around at a thousand times and push and see how far they can push you so you have to really be prepared to enforce rules, but it's for the good of the community. So I get this question all the time and I wanted to ask you the same question I get which is okay. So you do the podcast you do the blog you have Facebook groups. How does this actually do something to help create business? How do you get business out of this? Well, you have to have a plan right? I shouldn't say bit of a plane you have to have a plan. So it's not enough. I see a lot of people that start a Facebook group and they dumped five hundred people in unilaterally without their consent wage. A big no, no don't do that. You'll take people off and I see this with groups that are out there. There's some groups that I was thrown into and I look and they get zero activities just admin posting on a wall nobody maybe one like out of five or six hundred people and and the immense probably think gee what's going on, I guess six hundred people here. Yeah, you kidnapped them you threw them into the group, you know without their consent. Gee, I wonder why they not terribly thrilled about it. So that's the first thing is you build it up a different way where you invite people in and you make sure that they're coming in on their own accord and that they're they're that's the best way to do it. I'd rather have a group of 200 engaged people than a group of a thousand that just got thrown in I would say a few things I'd say make use of the real estate that's on the right-hand side of safe age groups where you can put your group rules and stuff. It's good to have a call to action and they're just so people can know how they can work with you if it's the right fit use a pin post. I mean at the top a lot of groups, don't do Thursday. That's valuable real estate that you can do and then be active in their everyday. I mean, there's so many groups that get orphaned where the admin's just stopped going in and it dies and you know from my groups just groups of Coke in Jungle. I'm in there a lot. You know, I'm posting theme days every morning and then I'm posting a couple of times a day and I'm there to help and answer questions and keep the conversation going and now it's running it off. I don't even have to go in there. They'll be people post and comment and so on so you have to be active and show people what you know, you know, your expertise and stuff and if you're patient and consists of doing that. That's not going to take a long time for you to start to get the business from it. But those are the steps that most people neglect to do and then they Wonder gee why am I not getting business from this group? Yeah. See, that's awesome and that game and yeah, I mean there's there are a lot of coaches in the world. I mean and you could just the two thousand that are in your group. It's you know, there's all them. Kinds and I think it really it's not about the sales pitch. It's about the relationship. It's about the results and that's some great advice man love that. So Mark if people wanted to learn more about issue, do you have anything to offer them, you know you're coaching groups or or is there a eBook that you have? Is there something that you could share with my audience that might help them down the road. Yeah. I mean first thing if they want to get access to almost five hundred episodes of the podcast, you know, that's free. If they have a few hundred hours to kill, you know in the next month by natural-born coaches.com. And I mean, there's absolutely everything to about building coaching business or in those four hundred and some episodes you've been on the show before thank you very much. And so that would be the first thing at the moment as a recording this I've got an hour roughly an hour and video training and people can get that if they go to accelerate for clients, or if you go to Natural Born coaches, you'll see a pop-up to hit you in the face and you can log Opt in there so that that our video training just screen share where I walk people through and the other cool thing I'm doing now is I'm not online program do it yourself. It's called your first five clients. And if you go to your first five Club, the number five or spelled out either way, it'll get there your first five clients people can find it. So that's that's the best part. The central Hub is Natural Born coaches. Com, which is in the process of being real life right now. We had another meeting this week and we're getting it all spiffed up and stuff. So by time this airs, it could be done but maybe not but that's the best one awesome. So if people wanted to get a hold of you what's the best way for them to do that? Well, normally I would say Facebook maybe a Facebook's get my bearing hidden folder and a Mark Zuckerberg has shown may not all the time Mark that Natural Born Pranksters. And that's Mark with a c m a r c a natural-born coaches. Com. Awesome. Hey Mark, this has been great. I love the way that you're you're building a community. You're using it. Yep. Staying true to your vision and you've created a plan at some really really great stuff. I got some stuff out of it. I know my peeps are going to love it. So thanks for joining us man.

Erica. I love this movie. But I'm gonna let you take lead on. This is bless. Thank you, welcome. That's amazing. All right. So I'm gonna take everyone through the plot of this film. I it's wonderful movie. It's hysterical. It came out in one thousand nine hundred three's. So there's some legit hardcore early nineties makeup, which is only favorite things about the movie like, Sarah. Jessica Parker's eyebrows on my God magic. So we start way back in time October thirty first sixteen ninety two Dockery banks and his sister. Emily have been taken by three witches is this is what happens on Halloween get kidnapped by witches Winifred, Mary and Sarah, Sanderson the kill Emily. I know it's fucked up it'd be starts off really really dark. It's dark. But it's also funny. It's weird. They kill her by absorbing her. You like this is how the witch's stay young and beautiful. They kill children and take their youth. Ben because they're bad ass. Bitches? They make Vaccari and immortal cat who we are now going to call Binks or the rest of this podcast. So he has to live with his Gill because he could not save his little sister, Emily, which sad supersonic. Like if you're going to get turned into anything. He's an adorable. He's an adorable Q Binks fucking adorable cat. Yes. So the villages just pissed off. Right. Hang all three witches. They're smart enough to just be like we want to be able to come back so brace there they test a spell on the village where if a virgin lights, the black flame candle on all hallows eve, aka Halloween. They will come back to life and Thackeray's just like, Nope. I'm staying at his cabin. I'm gonna fucking live forever. Virgin. And I'm gonna make sure that this does not happen. His whole goal in his feline life. Now, the guard cat now he has a guard cat people have guard dogs in hocus pocus. There's a guard cap. Yes. Which is why it's worth us favor movie. Yes. Just a little bit. So now flash forward early nineteen ninety s another reason why I love this movie. It's one thousand nine hundred three max moves to Salem from LA. Yes, he is very very very LA. He's probably early nineties. Fuck boy. But he goes through an amazing transition during this movie, and it's one of the reasons Dylan it, so he takes his little sister Danny who's so irritated about having to deal with trick or treating because his parents are going to a big ass like costume party as you did in the early nineties. It was abandoned your children get dressed up, and you drink and party all that. I have to reject fucking love, Danny so much. She's so cute. And I wanted to be her and she where red lips second super cute. That's all continuous Thorburn's was adorable. So max take stands trick or treating and he goes to his crushes house, right? Allison, who's gorgeous, Subaru EJ and really kind of wants nothing to do with him. Yeah. So obsessed with her parents party because it was like, that's the bad part. Yeah. No, no, no. They go to a different party await. They go to like there has parents go to like that cool like town part. Yeah. But her house is party is like all like regency era. They're all like regency cautions. And they'll look really cool. Yeah. And her off it a so pretty it's like a really pretty ballgown kind of Alison this kind of amazing. And I think she's part of the reason why he stops being, you know, L A fuck boy. Yes. Which is wonderful. But getting ahead of ourselves get back into it. So max with his like LA thought processes just like, which is aren't real everything's ridiculous. So she invites him to the Sanderson cottage. Right. Because this is in Salom. Yes. So like he's he does not buy into like any of the Halloween show. Like, he's all too cool for he's way, Jennifer school. She's like, no, let's go to the Sanderson cau- cottage and. I'm gonna prove to you that which is actually real. Yeah. So she takes him there. They go to the house Max's an idiot because L A fuck boy lights the black flame candle. He's a virgin resurrects the fucking witches and being tries to stop him. He tries right jump out at him. But it's just like what the fuck also Catt. So it's easy to just be like Kobe able black cat loved out of the shadows. At me. I would. Yeah. I would be like what you're telling me something you you have a message for me from somewhere. I would just be like why is it black cat leaving at me out of the shadows. I would stop what I was doing. And I would back up yet 'cause that's a natural human reaction, but max is stupid. Right. And he's so candle lit, which is our back and like looking good looking greats. I mean, it's just so that everybody understands why this movie is amazing the three which is played by Cathy, Jimmy, Sarah. Jessica Parker and the Queen of Broadway. Bette midler. I think it's pronounced fucking. But midler, and that's how you honor might have and Lucking Bette midler is she's Winifred. He's the leader of three which is and she is magic. She's insane. So good so idiot max lights the candle here, come the Sanderson sisters. Let ready to just like tear Salem up as one does. They're ready to steal kids youth again. So Danny's the top target because she immediately SAS his them as she should. I mean, who are these weirdoes that just popped up? Right. So max in trying to reclaim some of his not being stupid steals. The spell book, and they all run away Winifred resurrects zombie named Billy Bush Woodson Winnie like her unfaithful lover back when she was still alive, and he's hilarious. He is the actual zombie ever. He's on door ambi-, so fun bags. For me anyway, because I love both movies. Billy buttressing is played by Doug Jones. Who was also the fish in shape of water know, that I had no idea this is where Becky interesting 'cause they're both like non speaking roles, right, essentially. Off topic. So they all chase the kids like the witches and Billy and crazy shenanigans in Sioux, like, they're running all over Salem, the crashed the party which. It gives rise to the best song ever in any movie and the movie and like the best seen in the whole movies. I'd put a so. Yeah. So there at the party, and the which is chased them there and max tries to go up on stage and his like help us like the witches are here, and they walk in. And they're like we're here, and they look like they're an act. Yeah. And the band invites him up to sing. And so they saying I'll put a spun you bet Miller just Joe Bette midler just jumps up and fucking rocks. The house, but part of the song is her putting a spell on the townspeople. So that they're ignoring everything around until just Dan, they die. They're basically just all dying while they're dancing. It's no one actually dies. But they could I could that's the goal for sure. Which kind of makes those assholes or both here like they could die. That's great. So okay. So they're everyone's dancing. And meanwhile, the kids then take the Whitney lead the witches to like kiln in the building. And then they burn they burn them. And they think they're dead. And then they take the book, and then Danny really wants to help banks become human again as one would rice. Why wouldn't you? Right. So they open up the spell book to see and find a spell, and what they don't realize is like this giant beam of light comes out of the book. And it's like a homing beacon for the witches who are not dead because of course, not because they're fucking which. Right. And they wake up. They're like, yeah, let's go and they go to the house, and then they can up Danny and they take the book. So then they have to spend which is have the book and they can make the potion so they can steal Danny's youth. Like they started in the beginning as they need to otherwise they're going to disintegrate into incidents. There's another good musical number of Sarah. Jessica Parker singing on all the kids. Kyw Rin saw. So they make the potion, and then she sings this song is like a lullaby kind of song that draws all the kids out of their homes to the cottage while all their parents are fucking dancing and being horrible parents. And then she's gonna steal all of their Yahoos to keep the sisters alive. Yes. Yes. Because that's her superpower as a witch. Yes. And then and the kids are smart like they're dumb sometimes. But then they're really smart because so they're the witches are in the in the cabin. And they're like they made their potion. They're trying to fuck Danny Dan is not having it and she's being sassy little bitch. And I love her. And then as they trick the witches into thinking at sunrise because they turn their car lights onto the cottage to remember that part. I do remember that part on. So then yes, then they get into the cottage. They knock over the potion again, they get Danny they run into the cemetery. So they when they go into cemetery the witch's can step on hollow ground. So their flag flying over them on brooms and a vacuum as one does. And and Billy's best as we're Billy comes in. Because Billy's mouth has been shut the entire time. Again, why this actor is amazing. Completely cuts open his mouth lets out a ton of months and just starts insulting Winnie and amazing when you can't pay attention to anything out, and he's just like protecting the fucking kids like sucks to be you when he were not doing those now. And then yeah, Billy helps save the day. He gets his poor head knocked off. Sweet Billy point. They put Danny in a grave and surrounded with salt. So she's safe, and it gets very down to the wire. But then then the wishes are gone. Yeah. They killed the witches sons comes up, and the which is just as they're trying to steal Max's life, actually, the sun hits them, and they turned into stone. And then they burst into really pretty sparkles. Which if I'm gonna go pretty sparkles as a way to go. And then there's one real part. What beings OB there's sad parts of banks because earlier they are like China escape, and he gets hit by a bus all been the new like. Pops back to life because he's magic and he can't die. And then within this time. I think he gets hit with something. And then he any really is dead, very, son. But then his ghost comes out and he's loved real boy. Yes, it's almost like Pinocchio, which is and he's reunited with the sister. Which is amazing. 'cause I was like all he wanted where the fuck have you been all the sisters in this book in this movie or so fucking ASI? I love it. But it's fair. I mean that was the past three hundred years his whole life was how do I how do I avenge my sister? Yeah. And the NATO's, and it's wonderful. So as sad as you are about beings. He did get he got where he wanted to go. Yeah. That's important thing. And now. Great. Last episode. We talked to the husband and wife writing duo, Jennifer Miller and Jason Pfeiffer.

OT P A U D IB L E all lower case. So important thing to note about this film, which is something that still boggles my mind. This was a flop when it first came out. I can't figure out how that's possible. Well, this is where Becky is awesome. And I didn't realize that when this movie I came out in theaters it came out in July, which who gives a fuck about home. We movies in July bed movie studios. That's who it just doesn't even make sense. Like, you're I mean, I guess July parties you're thinking about Labor Day party without the beach. No one's thinking about pumpkin carving, and which are used like if you digital little earlier than Halloween, then you could like maybe sell merge of like, all the costumes and stuff. So people could dress up that Lear all yeah. Exactly July so early. But I imagine it was like just one of those stupid either got pushed back or like pushed forward the you had to fill a hole in the Egede, whatever it was dumb. Okay. This next fact, it's very important to me because Max's great, he's fine. He's pretty cute for like how does he like fourteen or something? Yeah. He's got that weird floppy hair. But we could have had Leonardo Di crap. Crabby? The crap though he is a crap Rio for not fucking picking his role. He turned it down to be in. What's eating Gilbert? Grape, sweetie. Let's you know, but like make it work to both. How I don't know. But imagine a fucking Leo was in this movie. It would have done a lot. Another could have been was that Rosie o'donald was almost one of the Sanders. Sisters, and I imagined she would have been Mary. Yeah. But I kind of feel like, but I didn't Jimmy was jeez. Good in that role. Yeah. I I love the casting of the Sanderson sisters like they all three of them were fucking perfection. And I love you Rosie o'donald. But now, it's Bette midler actually has said on record that hocus pocus was the most fun. She had had in her career up to that point. How could you not have fun being Winnie right in this movie that character is so intricate? I feel like you know, there's so much. There's all the makeup to it and the costume. But. The head. But then she brings so much to it like so much attitude and the sisters are great because they're all very different and have good comedic dynamics between them and everything. And I've seen a video of her doing. I'll put a spell on you like later. Yeah. She doesn't as she did it as part of one of her tour. Yeah. I can't remember which one and then she had all of her backup dancers dressed as as the sister. Who's as she has like the buck team and the hair, and it's wonderful. And it's why Bette midler is Bette midler, aka fucking Broadway icon. I love it. So the movie Garner's over a million dollars every Halloween in sales. I mean, I can't think of a better Halloween unless you really into scary movies. I can't they have a better family friendly like Halloween movie. It makes so much sense to me. It's been so like long-lasting won't. I mean. Yeah. Yeah. It is kind of the quintessential Halloween movie. I mean, you could look at things like the actual Halloween movies. Yeah. A could look at you know, all of the slasher films. But this is so much more fun. Yeah. The only one I can think of is like nightmare before Christmas. But that's you instead of being like a little bit more family friendly than like the slasher films. But it's still not as like delightful. No, all right. So now, we're going to get into the couple of parts do this real quick writing. So not really a couple kind of a throttle. But not in the actual throttle. Sons the sisters Winnie, and Sarah, and Mary yes, I ship the fuck of ship. The fuck out of that. How do you not there? I don't know their hose, bro. I can't their hose before broS. Like, they are there doesn't Sarah sleep with billion. That's why. Yes that is killed him. Sarah's also a bit of a ho, but she's on Tom. Yeah. So who were you? When like when you were when you first last movie who were you who did you wanna be? Who did I want to be or what I have been both like, okay? I wanted to be winning. Okay. Was definitely married. I would say like I always wanted to be Sarah. But now, I think more Mary everyone's a Mary everyone's married Mary Mary's the best. Yeah. What'd you think of maximum Alison, I think like it's cute for the movie definitely not like forever. It's not a real life real life relationship. I think you know, they're kind of in love in the moment. They're thrown together because of extrordinary circumstances. And it's it almost reminds me of Kiana Reeves and Sandra Bullock and speed. We're just so. Yeah, you right now is great because you're in a rural fucked up situation, and it's elevating tension. But after it's all died down. We're going to be like, I don't really like. Yeah. And I think that there are a perfect example of like girls mature faster than boys. So I just a picture like maybe they dated the rest of like maybe that whole year. Maybe that's a little aggressive. But then like she comes back from like a summer vacation has like an older college. Fran. And she. He's like you're kind of a dish by your. That's what I pay you were early nineties. What boys? What about max, and Danny and Thackery and Emily as predators and sisters. As brothers has. I think both are super cute. I like you said I like the growth. Max, and Danny go through I have to bring something else up. Charlie. There are people who ship Danny Thackery or who thinks that he's creepy because like he kisses her cheek at the end like she clearly has a crush on him like she loves banks as a cap, then he's kind of a hot kid. But so anyway, there are people who think that like, Danny definitely has a crush on Thackery slash banks. And that at the end when he kisses her it's like weird. And I was like I think it's definitely him like indulging a little girl's crush. It's not him being like what's up? I'll hit you up when you're dead. Like, I'm sorry. I just you just blew my mind that there is a subset of the internet. And it should not blew my mind because the internet is a darkened dangerous place where there is what basically amounts to kind of like miniscule slash fiction. Yeah. About hokey. But I don't know. I don't know if there's a lot of people who actually ship it or people who think that so. I feel like we ship. This movie, we shut the movie, and we ship the couple's. Yes. Although sister, he's a couple more. We don't ship. I don't show Billy and Winnie. Billy deserves better winning needs a stronger man who won't cheat on her with her sister. They they they kind of fucked holding up. Yeah. All right. I ship the movie I ship the sisters. I don't ship max. And alison. Yeah. I think that's weird. I kinda shit max, and Danny and Thackeray in Emily because they're brother sister dynamic as a door will billion winning. No IV not. But I do ship this movie and Halloween like it's the perfect pairing. It really is like this movie is one that everyone should watch every Halloween and it stands up to the test of time. It's never stopped being funny. It doesn't matter. How old you are? How young you are? It's still hysterical. So I think we should we should. All right. It's game time. We have get excited. We have a play on the classic. Fuck Mary kill game that I came up with called BSS. All right. What is B S B S stands for brunch? Shot shop. Oh, okay. I can do this. How do we pie? So we're going to say which of the Sanderson sisters that we want to have brunch with which one we want to take a shot with and which we'd want to go shopping with you. Go for hawk okay. I have to do in order to right, right so brunch shot shop, okay? I wanna have brunch with Mary. Okay. Because they think should be really fun and a great person to talk to you. And she would understand Adelaide isn't like teenage me. Yes. Obviously shots with win with Winnie. Yeah. Who would not want to have shots with Winnie? And I would shop with Sarah. Because again, like, Sarah, Jessica Parker in her heyday was fucking gorgeous. And she is also still a fashion icon. That's true fair fair fair. That's where I'm going. Okay. So I agree, but I'm going to switch a little bit. I would I would go to Brentwood, Sarah, because she doesn't seem like sheets that much. So I'd get all the food. I gotta get all the bread at the beginning of the way that I would definitely agree. Take shot with Winnie. Hopefully, not poison. I don't trust her. She's not, trustworthy, and then I would shop with Mary because Mary so supportive and nice like she everything I'm in should be like you look beautiful. But what if she didn't tell you the truth? I don't care. Works for me. I like it again, let us know on Twitter who would you? How would you guys break this out who's your who's your shot who's your shop? Right. And that is that it was fun.

Cathy truly understands the challenges families phase preparing for birth in caring for their newborns. A born teacher sure. She is in her element teaching new parents and health professionals. Welcome Cathy to the birthdays podcast. I'm so grateful to have this opportunity opportunity to spend time with you here today. Thanks my show. It is a delight to be here. I'm so happy to have you here. And before before we dive into the value that do can provide families. Can you share a bit about your journey and the maternal health field is interesting as a young kid growing growing up in a foreign country I always had a vision of being a CEO. I don't know why I guess when you're born leader it really does impress upon you. At a young age I would have never or had seen myself in the maternal health field. When I went to have my first baby I had A? Ob practice certified nurse Midwives we went to the childbirth education Haitian classes and then I ended up with being pre ECLAMPSIA and having a twenty six hour induction which I did without pain meds simply because a patrols of that day or different than they were today and after that experience it left me kind of like what the heck just happened so I began my journey of learning learning and understanding and really how I ended up in in the dual role. Is I had a girlfriend. who was pregnant about six months behind me? She had gone to one childbirth class classic. Her water broke at thirty six weeks and she called me and said can you come to the hospital. I don't even know how I'm supposed to breeze. And so of course I up and went and it was a pretty quick delivery and when I was done I came home and told my husband like this is what I need to do and he said you need to be a labor and delivery nurse now I I wanna be with the MOMS and he goes. Oh you WANNA be a doctor. Oh and I couldn't even describe his really back in in nineteen eighty nine. How we understand today really didn't even exist? Women have always been with women from the beginning of time but as we understand it today it didn't exist so that's really where Hook Line and sinker Hashtag tag bird. Jonky came from was from that delivery and I have to say that that little baby has now just earned her master's degree a year ago. Oh so so exciting. Yeah tell me a little bit more about Dulas and your different programs. You've had to train Dulas. Dulas I trained with you twenty years ago now and I really feel that your program is the the best out there. There's so much more required. We have to attend more burs to become certified and I think all of that is so vital to really serve families more thoroughly. Well you know when of course back when we started the word Dula wasn't even around. We use the word childbirth assistant because Dula in its original form Greek meaning mothering. The mother took on more to be the postpartum and it wasn't really till Dona came around. I believe like nineteen ninety any to ninety three that it began the understanding of a woman with woman during the birth piece of it. So back ah you know when I started and I have to laugh. I borrowed one hundred and fifty dollars from my mother and I mowed her yard to earn the money to go to the childbirth assistant training in in Tampa from an organization out of California. That's where I started. And you know how it evolved and really how we came about the training or other requirements of what we currently have today is at. What point did I began to feel comfortable with understanding standing birth having a pretty good grasp of it being able to support women and have an understanding of what generally goes on in the birth process and and then at the varying facilities whether it be home hospital averse center and so that's how we kind of set the training requirements and Over the years I will tell you that anyone that earns their certification with US truly feels like they know what they're doing now. We'll never never know everything. Because that's just a humanness is. We're always learning but as far as having that well rounded understanding of your role of nurses role physicians rule a how the varying aspects how labor complain themselves out. I really feel that those Cetera. Certified with US really do have a good grasp of what's going on. Yes I agree. Can you delve more deeply into the benefits. That Dulas can provide families. Sure the studies that were done in originally when less really started coming around like. I said the early nineties one of the original cities actually was done in Guatemalan. They had three different controls. Someone who just sat in the room didn't even know the family didn't interact then somebody who was a little bit more would speak to them talk to them and of course somebody then who wish trained and the outcome showed that as you went through those controls you got better outcomes and we look at the outcomes as what were your c section rates were. We're your infection or sepsis rates. What was epidurals rate? So we can quantify in statistical pieces like that but I think in the years to come We will even see more that is harder to quantify in the support that we provide when we look at historically really women giving birth we were in our family pods if you will. There were homestead in communities you were very entrenched in that and we did not have the flexibility mobility to move around like we do today. We look at cars being created airplanes shipping industries. All of that. I'm talking about a hundred two hundred three hundred in years back. We stayed very connected within our community and the women were with women and we helped giving birth. We supported one another in that as time mm-hmm rolled around and birth became more populated to the hospitals. We became a much more mobile society. Although we'd benefit from those advances is also what has happened is we now have disconnected more from our families of origin our communities if you will lil growing up so how the Dula in my opinion really helps is for a woman to feel connected to somebody who believes in in her who is willing to help through the process. Is there to guide aid. Give evidence based information and so the value. Oh Yeah I love the MasterCard commercials right that. It's priceless so really. The Dula in the value of what we do in my opinion is very priceless. Above and beyond just reducing election rates reducing the hours of labour reducing infection rates. It's so much more more to that. And it's very hard to get a new family to really grasp what that benefit and that value is oftentimes. I have families will later on the backside say well I was so much more than I would. I ever thought because it's just hard to write birth and my opinion is like a a student in high school learning to drive you. Go to the classes. You go to the driver's Ed you watch the videos you'll learn. Don't drink and drive live. You'll learn to put your turn signal on so far before this. We learn all dots and that's one level of learning. But until you actually get in that car you turn it on. You push the gas pedal you apply the brakes. You try to take that thing around the corner. It's a different being in that process in so birth earth. I always feel as a childbirth educator. That's kind of when I have those first time MOMS is I'm trying to prepare them for something that we're doing the best to educate in a situation we really don't no no all the moving parts and pieces. We have an idea but each bertha so individual if that makes sense yeah exactly exactly and yeah. I think what a lot of families don't realize going into this is a your physician if they're even on. Call the day that you give if birth but your physician may be with you. Maybe maybe an hour is probably going to be less and the nurses are going to be going in and out and you're really laboring there alone. And a Lotta Times there's medical jargon and you really don't understand stand what's going on and it's so easy ticket overwhelmed in that situation again. I just don't think people realize that that they're not going to get the support that they think through every contraction right and it's not even that the doctors won't or can't or the nurses won't or can't well I guess in some aspects time nurses or managing other patients. There is a law that has shifted over time in the medical community doctors or managing many other patients and so that continuity of care becomes very valuable. My understanding is back when birth moved moved to the hospital and you went to your obstetrician. We say that you met nurse. Nancy and that was Mr Smith Dr. Smith's nurse was nurse. Nancy and when Dr Smith went to the hospital to have a baby he called. Nancy and Nancy came with him and assisted in that delivery. So even at that you had a continuity nudie of of care of face you had your ob and you had your nurse and then as insurance companies and managed care and all all of this management of all of those pieces we now are even moving into what we call hospitals. So there are obstetricians patricians offices who employ hospitalised. They provide your care in the office. And now you're GONNA get a qualified obstetrician in the hospital. He used never met before so even at a time where I remember almost fifteen years ago thinking in my head. Oh No that'll never happen. And here we are and I understand why but is it doesn't change what the human need is to be able to connect and feel comfortable with somebody and that's where the dual really can enhance that is you've you've met her prior. You've gotten to know her. She knows you. She's learned what's important to you and she's there to actually help carry out and facilitate that to the best of their to everyone's ability during labor and provide that continuity of care. Exactly exactly I feel that. Continuity Committee of CARE is so vital. That's what attracted me to becoming a Dula. Because I discovered it was missing with my second birth I I had nineteen different doctors in the practice and I remember the relief. I felt when my physician showed up so I think that that is really invaluable. Because women need to be able to go within and work with their body and feel safe and supported and and that's something that that continuity of care does right in any time you think about any kind of stressful situation. When you've ever been in if if you've ever been stranded or I mean there's a myriad of things I could think of when you see somebody that you know there is an instant somebody's here they know me? Thank God right and so think about that in terms of going through one of the most memorable experiences of your life and that memory can be positive or negative depending on the situation that unfolds to have somebody that you are connected with and that is I think just the a valuable piece of the Dula. Yes your your advantage. You know yes do you get typically lower c section rates absolutely. Do get shorter hours of labor. Yes but it's not connectedness of feeling somebody is there somebody is listening to you. Somebody is hearing you. That's what's very important. I agree I feel like that's part of what can make birth experience more positive if things aren't going away than a Mama anticipated painted in plant if she gosh yeah she's just into yes in the experience that you and I have of a years of being bedside with patients in labour is you and I both know. Birth doesn't always end up in a vaginal beautiful scene skin-to-skin into skin with mom and baby. There are times when things turn very quickly and their emergent things that need to be done. I just had one not that long ago. That AH WE'RE laboring naturally. Everything's going fine months complete. We start pushing. And all of a sudden we have baby's heart rate crashing down and it ended up being that s cord was wrapped like two or three times around the neck. And you know I often wondered. Gosh if we were three hundred years ago in this was happening what would have transpired and most likely we would have had a baby that would not have gone onto live at. Don't know that it wouldn't have survived. Thank goodness we do have the medical care that we have today so even when something like that goes down having somebody there supporting you looking at you and say it's okay. The hospitals doing everything it needs to do. Do you keep looking at me. I need you to breathe for your baby may just stay calm. Look at me get your partner. That is so so key. It doesn't guarantee that births going to be perfect every time and when it's not wow even to have somebody there that's going to stand with you through. That is very valuable. I really think we can help. Mitigate the overwhelm and the feelings of I'm not sure and when something is going down if it's a caregiver caregiver that someone doesn't know I believe that we do does help them to navigate those decisions has sometimes you know there's a Lotta stop out there on the Internet and stories out. Oh my physician forced me into this. I really didn't need to have this procedure and if we dulas this can help these families to mitigate and work through these stressful situations to say yes. I know this is a away. Wanted your birth to go. Oh and in my experience your physician is correct. A Cesarean is the best route for your birthday. And I know that's not what you've wanted but we're GONNA work through us together right exactly and you know in the reality is in any profession. You have the good bad and the ugly if you will. And and so are there some providers out there that are more inclined quickly to do C. sections absolutely in. Everybody doesn't always come to the table with non-bias if you will and so we are that sounding board to of of of helping them work through. And ideally the Dula empowers. That's really ultimately what I really like to see. dulas is do empower the mother to make the decisions that are correct for her and her baby. At that time. It's never art decision. It's but we empowered to make the decisions that work for them. Yes I agree. I agree so that leads me to the question What are your suggestions for family that is considering during having a Dula support them in their pregnancy and birth? How do you recommend they interview their Dula? What do you feel like is good to look for for that type of thing right? Well you know like I just said it. Their everybody has a different way of practicing different ways of coming to the table able with their profession. So one of the quickest ways to do is usually most women are in their childbearing years. So are your friends. Do any close friends or acquaintances acquaintances. Have they used Dulas. Can you recommend anybody. If you're an area where that you don't you're just not in that season of your life and you find yourself not able to use that option then I would go to your provider and ask them do. They have anybody that they really liked to work with. And if they do then obsolete look into it if they don't then I would do that. Good old Google Search Internet when you interact with the dual and usually it's a phone call. A Dula should kind of ask you. What are you looking thing for in a Dula? What is your motivation for that? And so as the Dula you know is asking you questions. Then you also also want to ask the questions about the Dula. What is your years of experience? How long have you been working? Do you know my provider. Are you familiar with the hospital and going to would be giving birth. And what is your philosophy of I. It's really important to know where that dulas coming from. I just did a postpartum yesterday yesterday. And the couple that we had supported mentioned to us that they had looked into some other services in the area. And that they they've got the feeling with this particular Dula whom I don't know and I don't really I don't want to know who it is doesn't matter but they said it these ten to fifteen different print times. They felt the Dula saying and really pushing that they should have a home births and for this particular couple they were planning on a hospital birth so they said it Kinda just didn't fit well with him so my opinion is you should have that gut instinct to feel comfortable with this Dula that that you connect that there is some type of connection and then of course the fee ranges are wide ranges across the country. And how much it costs or what. Service fees run right and that can depend too on Dulas experience and number of bursaries attended. Did it's important to take that into consideration. Also if you're Dula charges a fee to meet with you it's important to honor that because because she's a professional just like your auto mechanic or your physician or your hairdresser. You told ask them. Hey can I take to coffee and pick your brain and see if I like you I. They are professional and feel that really needs to be honored. Especially they've been in the field for thirty years like you have You're talking about when you're interviewing the Dula. Yes I'm sorry. Yeah Yeah Yeah well if you think about it you know if somebody comes to your home to provide a service age check on their juror to fix something regardless of what the outcome is. There is a service fee for that person's time and experience is to come so I can. I can definitely see that in value that for sure and different Dulas run acting differently. And that's the uniqueness of commerce commerce here in the United States right we service providers get to uniquely designed how they feel their services should go. And that's why I tell people when people even even call to interview me. I've got a last interviewed. Anybody else I really would encourage them to because if they ultimately ended up choosing Charles concierge. I want them to never look back and go Al Malik. Gosh I should've interviewed three or four people. You know you want them to be happy with the service that they contract with right. It's really important to resonate eight with your Dula because they will be there at one of your most intimate times of your life. Yeah vulnerable the most empowering marine. There's no other time like it. I'd also like you to touch on the role that we play when working with. It's a partners and not just the mom because sometimes partners can have an understandable assumption that we're going to take their place place where we're going to take over as Dula right and so yeah. We're working with partners when I am interviewing the client and that is an interview that goes goes back and forth because my time is valuable. My experiences valuable their time is valuable to them so we both want to make sure. It's a good match one of the questions. I'm always always asking is. How do you see your partners supporting you in labor and then if the partners available how they see themselves supporting mom in that process too so so I want to see where the plumb line is where the understanding is before I even go to address the situation? A firmly believed that no Dula could ever take the place of that partner. There is just not a the relationship does not have the capacity. DB intimate in the same way and so the Dula is an added an addition to that birthing team and so finding out how how this partner feels they see themselves being involved then also gives the dual accuse on how the Dula needs to interact with this couple. Does that make sense. Yeah so the Duma doesn't go in and take the place they never could and so a good skill Dula is always going to be assessing where that couple is how they interact and where she needs to kind of fit in a few things or step back. I have been a deliveries where I walk away going. Wow I really didn't do much because the partner was absolutely amazing. They stepped in they. Did I mean they just stepped up. If you will and did what needed to be done. There were times when I might interject or make a few suggestions but the bulk of the heavyweight being carried was done by the partner and then there's Times where I've done bursts where the partner is sitting back just because that's their comfort level and I have stepped up to be more of the physical and the emotional support for that mom. It really is very key in the prenatal. Time to get a feel of where everybody is in their comfort in their expectation levels and and then you know how you are to where you can better support instead of coming in and Irving support where it may not be needed right right and I do think that Dulas can help partners to not feel so overwhelmed and the process because birth can be eh overwhelming if you haven't experienced it before and even if you have and so I think we can help the partner to have some guidance and not feel overwhelmed and help navigate this situation and they can step back if they get overwhelmed they can move forward if they you do feel more comfortable and just like you said every partner has their own comfort level within supporting their partner the mother their child and one ways not better than the other I think. Sometimes there's this Cinderella aspect that my husband is going to support me through every single contraction and he's GonNa hold my hand and he's GonNa get in the pool with me and some dads are really great eight partners or gray giving that and some are just too overwhelmed. We need to honor where they're at. Is that make sense. Absolutely absolutely. No two people are the same and they're so individualized and unique that really and truly to me that is in the essence of Dula is to be flexible and to know where to increase the support for this moment to know windows. Step back and if you think about any any tasks that you have to do that is arduous time consuming hard. When you have somebody else that will be with you in that? It makes it more doable and so often times one berthod. I just did the other day I said have you eaten and and the partners said no and I said okay options are can go get something for you or you can go and I'll stay here and they opted to actually have me go. Get them something because they wanted to stay with with their partner and that was great. I went made sure they had got something to eat. Yeah so it's a team right and partners can forget to eat. It's really important to eat partners owners very important if you think you're okay and I can work twelve hour days without eating but it's different when it's the birth of your child and the moms ready to to give birth in the babies being born. There's so much happening. It's easy to get kind of blood. Sugar can drop and you may not even realize you're feeling feeling woozy or something like that. So eating is important. Mary important sometimes to Dulas can step in if a mom and her partner have had a long early labor and they've arrived at the place of birth Labor's getting active. And you can tell. Oh the partner is just so exhausted and needs a little nap. I like to check in and say I can tell you're so tired. Fired do like to lay down and check with a mom. Is it okay if your partner lies down for a little while because you're going to need them when it's time to push and you're going to need them once the baby's born in we don't want your partner exhausted survey take a little nap. And we'll fill in the gap and then and they can be more refreshed to help you. I smile when I think about it. You and I if few years actually been more than a few. We had a mom who found herself going into the end of this pregnancy single and she hired you as her early Labor Doolan hired me as the end Labor. who were that? And I'm just so amazed that she had the wisdom to be able to do that because she understood the value of support right and she didn't want either one of US exhausted Yep and I always tell couples to and I work with them. I'm I'm trying to gauge as do love wind to get there when things are active. And you're going to need me for say like if you've done that. Twelve hour twenty four hour our pre promo type labor and then things are getting active in everybody's exhausted. You're going to need me to be the fresh happy face. It's like come Montaigne. We've got this allow partner to take that rest if I'm from the get go I'm right along with you. All three of us are wiped out so it is years of experience once again when you're hiring Dula that plays into is what her experiences. I always say it's not like you're buying buying A. Let's say a Pencil Holder Cup. And how good is his Pencil Holder Cup rate. It's not a tangible item. When you hire a Dula what you're hiring? Hiring is her years of experience and her ability to articulate appropriately. What her years? Experience are into your unique birth situation. So that's the difference. I always tell people obviously if you can financially afford somebody that has experience all these the is going to be a benefit to that now can somebody. That's just starting out. News Dula still provide great labor support in solving a birth. Yes but there is something to say the wisdom in the just the season season of time of someone like you and Myself Michelle that have just years. That's why I've made a concerted effort in twenty nineteen to really start mentoring and helping develop the younger dulas coming end because I do have experience and experiences valuable right right right and that's exactly what you're paying for for lack of better. Words is that experience is. You're so right. It is not ought tangible with birth. It's so unpredictable. You could be with a family for six eight hours. You could be with a family thirty eight hours hours But they bring the same amount of experience to that birth no matter how long they're there and that like you said with the MasterCard it's priceless It really is yeah. It's hard to place a value on Dulas and yet at the same time when I'm training Dulas always telling you can think your value is five thousand a delivery and you certainly can charged five thousand. But if nobody's he's hiring you at five thousand. How good are you at supporting people? If you've priced yourself so up you know that's that's a great topic for another podcast podcasts. Yes but you can charge more than the market will bear. But you won't be busy. I always tried in my life to pace myself. Where people can I bridge Jonky? I love to do birth so I rather price my services where they're obtainable then to price myself off out of the League of people hiring me for consumers. They really do need to do their due. Diligence and ask what are the years of experience. Somebody says. I've got four months and they're charging up at the same rate. I'm charging well if they can get it. Okay but really and truly and in my opinion again the value of the years experience that make the difference right. It really is. And as you're speaking the ability to articulate with the staff whether it's at home at the first center in the hospital if a hospital says this is our Dula we love working with Stu la that means something that means that Dula has worked very very hard to create that repore with the staff and the staff appreciates it and that is also invaluable invaluable. Well nobody well. I should say nobody who wants to be in a time that is vulnerable. How were full key life experienced and having them against US mentality or who wants to be where there's division vision and you're having to feel like you've got to be on guard the entire time I mean in my career there people that have interviewed me and I'm listening to their birth earth experience and I will say to them? Have you thought about delivering in a birth centre. Because what they have. Their eyes set on really isn't super conducive to how systems the hospital work and why set themselves up for that. If they can be in a burst center at a home birth and it just be the norm for them and what they're wanting adding to do you know Michelle. I'm for wherever people choose to deliver. Don't sway one way or the other all about supporting parents. But why put yourself yourself in a position now if it's because insurance or because of other things than let's do the work that we need to come to a place where we can be accepting that we are going to deliver in the hospital and then do our due diligence fence to work through got those fears and concerns right and to have families be able to advocate for themselves and also to respect that you're on their turf or is Adriana Poplar here an mazing Tula here in our area. She said once you're going to somebody else's house and if you go to somebody's house do you walk in and tell them exactly how you want everything to be. And I'm not saying not to advocate for ourselves right Florida. Sorry it's raining. This is central Florida. It rains here a thunder but I think what's important into and I know I've said this before but if you're Dulas says oh it sounds sounds like you want this type of earth. This hospital will really help fit your needs better or this caregiver because you I always say say you can't go to Taco bell and buy fish sandwich right if you're looking right if you're looking for this type of birth we do know the Tiber over you know the Yoga instructors know they hear the stories but I think especially we dulas. We're in the trenches we especially if we go to different hospitals. We can tell you which one's GonNa help best fit you want. Yes what you want for your birth. Because Jiro Burst I. It's not ours and we want what you want but we also want you to help help you to get that verse that you want right so heartbreaking to me to have someone say after their baby was born. Oh you know. I'm really disappointed. This wasn't what I wanted in my baby spurs. It's just heartbreaking to me Sometimes if you're planning and out of hospital birth or percent averse sometimes you have to transfer and that changes the plans in a Dula can help mitigate that too but it just feel. It's important if you're asking her where to go. And she recommends this physician and this hospital cording to what you're wanting then take that into consideration and that's different than having somebody tell you ten ten times like you mentioned earlier. Oh you should really do a home birth. You don't WanNa home burst than Oh hey. We're going to this hospital. Let me help you navigate that right it absolutely. Let's get you the best birth. We can honor where we're at and let's work with their protocols and really helped make this the best. I experience that we can absolutely I have one last question for you please. What bid of wisdom if you have a lot of it? I'm going to be interviewing you again. Please but what bit of wisdom which you light to share with our birthdays families That in itself is a deep question and lefty questions. Wisdom is done. You know I think you have to trust your gut instinct in this world take especially in the seasons where we are in our country. There is so much fear and so much unrest and I believe that we are in process of women recognizing that through through the ages somewhere. Our voice has been diminished. Our ability to believe in ourselves has been stolen. And so so. We're working on reclaiming that we are powerful human beings that we can choose powerfully that we know what our body needs but whether it's cultural not here to try to figure out exactly what that is right now. Something has stolen from women and I mean if if that was the case if he believed in did what we really needed to do. I don't know that we would be in the situations that we are here in birthing arena so my wisdom would be to. The listeners is to take time to sit and to really contemplate. What is important to you and what you really believe about your ability to birth and in fact I would tell you to take a piece of paper and write down positive and negative and all the thoughts that you have a positive right on the column and all the negative and if you find that your columnists of negative is way big? I want you to begin to look at what is one hundred eighty degrees. He's from that negative item that you've written down so come up with a solution to whatever that pollution of thought is. Does that make sense. So so because our ability to believe in ourselves and our ability to give birth has been stolen from us. We're in that process of reclaiming that back. So very powerful in wise exercises to do this where you do the positives and the negatives and then find an answer to that negative and then cut the piece of paper in half and take all the negative thoughts and have some type of symbolic gesture with with you and your partner were. You've looked at them. You've identified and you're releasing them. I don't care if you throw it in the garbage. I don't care if you light it on fire are you can chop it. Up in a million pieces you can pulverize it. But something that signifies a demarcation line of I'm choosing to let go of all all those negative thoughts because the brain is very powerful and I'm choosing to embrace all of these positive thoughts and this is what I'm going to project checked into the birth of my baby. I'm GonNa Project all the positive and let go of all the negative so that's my wisdom offerings. Yes yes to come from a place of doing your work ready for for this birth and to step into faith versus fear. And can you please say that quote that quote me for twenty years And I love him. Yes so fear and faith are equal in our dimension as we understand human life here as we see it. Faith and fear are equal in our dimension they both project into the future and they both demand to be fulfilled. Which one will you fulfil? I have goosebumps. OBS- got bumps.

LeBron v. Steph, Magic + Jeanie, Giannis' Game 3, Big Ben + AB
"Jason la. That's my soul is widely that do this. I wanted to be yourself. The most fearless showing sports coming up. We'll tell you Jane plus piece to fire back in Magic Johnson start today with the warriors. It's clear. Now, the Steph curry is basketball. Tom Brady, that just might mean Ron James Peyton, man. That's what Amelie crossed my mind in the aftermath of golden, Golden State Warriors, sweep of the Portland trailblazers last night. Steph curry has built a basketball culture that rivals the one Brady has cultivated with the New England Patriots. Let's call it plug and play or next man up the partner, changeable and replaceable, the system works best when curry and Brady or the focus, but it can survive the absence of any part including its high profile engine last night. The warriors eliminated Portland and overtime when nineteen seventeen without the services of three of its top six players. Kevin Durant, boogie cousins and. Andrea Guatemala sat with injuries. This is simply amazing curry recorded a triple double thirty seven points, thirteen rebounds, and eleven cyst. He played forty seven minutes total and every minute of the second half and overtime game four was his magnum opus. It's the signature game of his career is the game that illustrates his value and establishes him as the most important player of his era important is different from most valuable Tom Brady is the goat because of his importance to the patriots way that is produced six Super Bowl victories, and nine Super Bowl appearances the warriors way is headed to its fist straight NBA finals, the first quad to go to five straight since the Balsam Celtics dominated a nine team league. The Bron James is more valuable than Steph curry, but King James is not as important curry style of play has changed the NBA and his team. First mindset has. Gated a consistent culture of Winnie LeBron's James clan claim either one of those things Steph is Brady LeBron. Manny it was just ten years ago, the nearly everyone thought Manny was superior to Brady in two thousand nine Manny one is fourth MVP award and played in a second Super Bowl for years later. Manny one a fifth MVP and most people still thought he was the goat. Brady's won three Super Bowl title since then, and has ended the goat debate. That's where we're headed with LeBron versus Steph, winning eventually overwhelms individual talent, and individual accomplishment. And yes, today there's a debate about what's more impressive lebrons individuals streak of eight straight finals appearances or Golden State's five straight that conversation will end in June. If the warriors win their fourth title in five years, the bronze streak in a weakened Eastern Conference is impressive, but it's nowhere near the equal winning four titles. And. Five years. Lebron is as spectacular individual town who struggles to produce the kind of continuity, and stability necessary to build a sustainable culture, his unwillingness to part with any head coach has cost him titles. It's undermined his pursuit of Michael Jordan. Steph curry has produced the dynasty that rivals Michael Jordan's bulls. If curry finishes with five or six titles and Golden State. Join Kobe Bryant as yet another NBA legend, more important than LeBron are joining the death now or a couple of NBA champions. Kendrick perkins. And for the first time BJ Armstrong, welcome our Marcellus. We'll start with you will Steph having greater legacy than even LeBron James. No, no. He won't. And I won't make this mistake of exaggerating individuals greatness based on team success. I wasn't raised that way. That's not the way out through the ball around the part. That's not the way I was recruited. To go to high school violation. No. I was never raised that way. But, you know, get into the big business appro sports. We understand that this is a TV show and media conversations was spur from what happens on the field on the court. I'll look at it this way. You know, my favorite sport is track and track is defer sport. And it's the simplest sport. And it always answers all of athletics riddles. Here's the one is salt, right here, watch T run a relay. And there's one question you ask everybody who won. What did they run in terms of time? And then the real esteem, the smart Trak purist would say, let me see those flits. You know what a split is who did what to get them to that position when you start looking at the splits LeBron James has run the fastest split of these two even though Steph team will cross the finish line moretons with the gold on who ran the fastest no conversation. Let me just before you are. We won't believe this, but your time, I ran the four by one hundred relay and sometimes over more important than the splits, how you pass that baton a line. Round, and nobody has the Betim better to step right point will Ness magazi- outshine, LeBron. Well, you looking to players of had an enormous impact on the game of basketball from individuals standpoint. The James what he's done athletically, and what he's been able to achieve in performing the way he's performed speaks for itself. Steph curry on the other hand, you look at his team, what he's been able to implement his skill set into a team, which we all seen for whatever reason we seem to be able to identify identify with more than just a great individual talent. I think what Steph curry has done. He's, he's really transformed. The game where at one point in this league we were inside out league. And now we're saying, we're an outside in so Steph Curry's impact on the game as you're seeing now is really having an impact on way we teach the game, the way the game is played, but more importantly, how we defend and we view the game we're looking Steph curry did something last. Night to me was as unique. I've seen late in the fourth quarter he was opened from to, and he traveled trying to get back to three and no one said anything because that's the way the game is played now the analytics has really made this game now to were big, Kendrick, all of a sudden now we've, I'll you small ball and you're seeing the impact that it's having the way barbershop is played the way we run it which was gonna have the greater legacy. You gotta fix. Agent talk I ever saw. I think LeBron James, okay? We'll have a because of the individual, we're always looking for the great individual talent, and LeBron James as a standalone player. Okay. So I'm gonna take myself as a pros and I'm going to the stats sheet today. Okay. So individually the broad James has thirty two thousand points eight thousand eight thousand rebounds. Probably is going to be the only player to finish with the thirty thousand ten thousand ten thousand he's a three time champ, three times final VP of four times MVP fifteen time. All-star three-time all-star. It'd be twelve time. First team all NBA five time. First team all defensive teams time to the fun. The farmers. And in twenty nineteen pass. You he was he had the number one jersey seal, number one, top Schuessel again. Everytime, LeBron James, leva franchise, the Knicks year the franchises in the lottery. He's the only guy that I've seen. He's LeBron had the coming out of high school, his expectations for him was through the roof. He got tattooed on his back the chosen one from the day, he stepped into the NBA he'd lived up to the expectations and no nocco Steph curry. He's doing a great job over the and they're building dynasty. And he's, you know he's. Like Jay said he's changed the game of curves for nominal play. He will go down in the hall of fame. But at the end of the day, we cannot sit up here in say we decided to legacy between winning championships because if that's the case, then that means Robert or no was better than Kevin Garnett. Yes, it is. Because we're not by the sit up in say Robert was better than Charles Barkley because he all ring. No. So we're not to say when championships defined your legacy. This man is arguably the greatest player when you put them on the side of Michael Jordan, ever play the game of basketball. So to me, this is Abbas it oranges and it's the disrespect to the Royal Navy in. As a football person. I've heard all this argument, I heard all throughout the two thousand two thousand kids, Peyton Manning stats while you could run them on five time MVP, and blah, blah, blah. And also the good to me. I'm Indianapolis and it until it got to apply what like damn Brady one six superstore, six Super Bowls and for twenty years he has powered that organization created a culture, and all of a sudden, the debate just quit it quit coming down to just stats and Robert Horry and a bunch of guys eight in this conference because they never drove a team this guy is driving team. And these accomplishments winning is what it's all about at the end of the, and I think, still thrives, in this system, we go to stay, I think Draymond clay, make stiff just like stuff makes them. I think they. Oh he's. But can you take Steph curry, you could take our Brady and put him on the Dallas Cowboys and he probably could take the Cowboys to two Super Bowl win the Super Bowl. Can you take stuff and go put him on today's Chicago Bulls, and expect high speed patients for the Chicago Bulls? No, you could take LeBron James and put him on Chicago Bulls, and they instantly become a playoff contender kindred, and, and that's great that you just said that, but I just watched LeBron James show up to Los Angeles. They did not play in April may, they're not in the playoffs. But this is before he got hurt. They was the top five seeds before LeBron James. It was games out of ten. As well. It was hanging barbershop member close. All day. Listen. I'm a fan of still man. Disrespectful offers. No, it's not. I'm a fan of stuff would he would go to stay warriors? There last night. That was beautiful basketball. I, I haven't seen that in a while beautiful from top to bottom Steve Kerr needs to get credit for that because he put guys in position to be successful. And I'm not taking with stiff stiff is of a nominal plan. He's gonna go down the hall of fame. But at the end of the day, are you going to put stuff on my Rushmore? Absolutely. If this continues, and he gets to a fifth, a sixth title and just like BJ his said, even more so than Michael Jordan. And I think I won't say more so because joins impact was incredible. But in terms of changing the way we play the game, the way we view the game everything. Steph curry has done that it's his lead. But he is three point shooting league. I'm gonna tell you one thing he hasn't done. He hasn't won the finals MVP. So what do I wanted to roll down one because you saw you draw parallels to compare since great? And it makes sense match conveniently, but are you really going to go down and say that because you didn't say, how LeBron's legacy will continue say, if Steph continues we have to also imagine LeBron can do you're going to say that Steph curry will have a greater legacy then LeBron James? I just want to hear that simple. If this continues and they get to a fifth or sixth title. I, I don't think LeBron's winning any more time. Okay. If he stays here in Los Angeles with the Lakers. Great success for Steph continued, and doomsday for the bra domesday just not titles. Again. They might make out don't think they're winning more titles here number I think eighty lease go to state. I think the whis is wide open nature. Kaby has left Golden State, any just whip poor. And if you go if you think when Katie leaves there won't be some I'm not saying great players like Haiti, but there's going to be all let me get over here to Golden State and help them that's going to create an opportunity and trust me. Golden State will have their pig. Not him superstars. But of some there's gonna be some thirty twenty nine year old out there who can really play who's going to go in that they're going to be a title contender. Continuing forward healthy boogie. It'll be the only have the money to pay. I mean, one of these is the division within this league which we're talking about here is the analytics, which is Steph curry Steph curry now. We are three pointing three point shooting league and three point shot. He's here. And then we have this other way of thought is basketball, the purest, you know, play the game is slow down and in the playoffs. The game more resembles that style of play. The one thing the yes to play. Because when you watch the game and how it's played, especially in the playoffs. You gotta get the best shot that you can possibly get the most uncontested shots that you can get during the course of the game. And that's the value of watching the war. The warriors are very unique team from this standpoint run smart, green rebounds the ball. Their offense starts. They're the only team in the league that not has been able to take that away from them. Because when dream on rebounds, the ball, he is, as good of a decision maker is any point guard in transition, so Steph curry, and Klay Thompson, and Kevin Durant. They don't have the burden of sand. They have to do other things like initiate an offense or run. The team dry gets the ball and pushes it out. And they're getting uncontested shots, whether it's a layup, whether it's three because drama allows them to play away there. No other team in the league and play. And that's what makes them very difficult team because no one can contest them on a consistent basis the way they play VJ. I think you're right. There is a war going on. Analytics, verses what I consider like old school superstar ball. Yes. And, and this is what I like about our where I think Steph, is winning. I think the league is all meaning into system and tr- play. Offensive system that fits the all everybody on the court. That's what Steph do as opposed to superstar at the top of the key playing ice. Oh ball and making all of the citizens. That's lebron. D wade. Kevin Durant falls into that a little bit James harden, they fall into that. I think the league if you look at the Lakers, doubling down. Hey, man, I, I know you want us to hire Taiwan Liu, but we're going the way of the rest of the we don't hire coach and try to stab us a system. I see that again, and we have this conversation now but this is why a lot of these former players can't get head coaching jobs right now. They're going with guys out of the film room, the system guys. The analytic guys as coaches Steph is he Steph and Golden State of driving in. But the thing I have with that problem of the analytic guy is that you watch and you watch Golden State in everybody tried to mimic, go to stay. Right. So everybody wanna say, oh, I want to build a team like Golden State. Yeah. But you don't have the personnel like Golden State. So the analytics analytics is some way is food goal in the source, because if you don't have the personnel to play the way, they'd go to state is then that goes out the window because for the simple fact that they say, oh, we'll go to state they don't they don't like shoot mid range shots. No, that's bull crap Klay Thompson. Range. So Houston falls into it, and what they do they look horrible. They, you watch air going who's been who are played with who who's been a great player. You watch him have to take an like, you know, thirty six threes because this is what they're teaching. The analytics a we go take threes. Drive all the way to the best. I watch still want Steph struggle. He may miss a couple of threes. He'll step in the pool in the free throw line. Jay is nothing wrong with your point. A war of the two worlds and you have to have the proper balance neck. What the warriors did was go analytics first, and then everyone leaned too far into it to the point, where now going state was the eighth best three point shooting team this year eighth best everybody else's way too in front of their skis. Trying to be the one where they're leaving those mid range jumpers, get cuts to the Basque is back door all that is still open. I look at the league, though sent. Let's look at the Denver Nuggets. The they don't play exactly golden stays way. But there in that lane, Portland, even last night to me, Damian Lillard off the ball and did other things to compete in that game Portland has a system that they believe they're a LeBron. And his group have a system. Oh, superstar show up unless Bill something around him. Let's don't plug them into a system. I go again. This is where I say. Lebron's vault not. With a coat. Michael Jordan is great as he was talent wise. They still ran the triangle offense system. It was still Tex winters, and, and Phil Jackson and a system. Lebron and this and I think some guys have gone overboard on that. Like, no, I am system. I'm gonna sit out here at the top of the key. And everybody's gonna eat off me, it doesn't win as consistently are certainly can't survive all the obstacles, go to on quick. No. What would coach ideal can you go get to coach Brown is my thing. You can't is not like you can go take Gregg Popovich, from the Spurs and say, hey, come be this. You know you sometimes when you were that great of a player is not about what coat is what you will allow as the great player. What coaching will you allow to happen? And God forgive me for saying, this people gonna laugh be upset. But but per when it comes to sports writing, and as a column, I'm only. Bronze level and the only way that I was able to reach my height was to get this. You know what you don't know everything that some people help you and, and, and back off. You you're great as this. But you're better with help even when the help is wrong. Some again vast what LeBron hasn't been. But who's to say see I was in the locker room. And I, I watch T Lou go Braun in film room and say oh, now we run into this way. And bronze say why? No, we go running this way. And if it don't work, then we'll try to way, I watch Braun coach. So but if he feel like he run over you. That's what any okay and here's the deal. This is again, where I was say because the brand does like Tyler, and I believe you and others who have said this about Todd, but LeBron left Cleveland to he left Todd. Lou and Cleveland and that situation to come out here and do his own thing. Treated Luke Walton wrong, and then wasn't in position to bring tied Lou out here, whoever, but you've got to allow the coach. Trust me, Michael Jordan was going to be successful with or without coaching Colby with or without coaching all these all time. But eventually, they allowed they allowed a coach to coach and gave him and to me LeBron and never left, Eric's bolstering, Pat Riley, if he wanted to reach his full potential as a winter. But I think I agree with you on that extensive, sir. But I think he made the right move to go back to Cleveland. There was the best for his thing is just it's the same thing 'cause 'cause it's almost the same argument that we have in with Christmas tweet yesterday. The F behind Katie tight Asterix. Okay. Ashes behind Katie title is the same thing with Braun in Miami. Okay. You went join with the way and a Chris Bosh form the super team. Okay. Braun. So i'm. Oh, you I'm gonna go to Cleveland and I'm joined forces with re who never won anything without lavar and great feather. That's what I'm saying. So he's. Juicy fan.

Kendrick perkins. BDR from also the retype all right time now for our big story. Let's move to the Lakers where the start of the Frank era was overshadowed by Magic Johnson scorched earth interview about his abrupt resignation from the team Bulloch was introduces the new head coach yesterday, but owner Jeanie Buss was not was noticeably. Absent from the press conference was left ESPN's, Ramona Shelburne questioning buses leadership writing, quote, every decision. They made from installing Pelinka's the top basketball decisionmaker to settling on their third coach head coach has been Wolke unpopular worse. There's been no one from the organization willing to explain anything in the public spotlight. This used to be an area in which genie boss, excelled. She was always willing to take questions, even harsh ones. But she has been out of sight as of late seemingly resigned to taking all the criticism coming her way, I think genius needs to respond. To magic tack. I, I don't think she can hide and just think it's all wanna blow blow over and go away and say what, you know, people always say face the music. That's when you have something to say, we all know actions speak louder than words. And fortunately, there's a correlation between her and being a part of ownership in the Lakers having their worst six years in terms of no playoff success and losing records. So I don't know what she could say. Those moments think it's okay to have a defense when you also have offense offense were winning games. We're doing some things right. But if you're just going to go out there and respond to some attacks without anything else to support it, but he say she say, I think that will come off wrong, so it's amazing that Ramona has finally written this article. This is something that a lot of people have been watching it turns of the lack of leadership and ownership, I don't think genie's ready for these moments. But she does have confidence the Lakers lean years before, remember when? In a championship world, the Lakers. They went eight years without winning the championship early. Mid nineties post magic got lean thirty one wins at a time before shack and Kobe and I think she's trying to use that as her confidence. She rode the wave in terms of being there with her father, Dr bus in those moments. I think she's trying to do that against silent until you could come out and really do some damage. Well, you know, when I look at the situation, I've, you know, I have to deal with this team from agent perspective, I have to deal with this team and knowing all the players, I know, rob, I know Irving and the, the one thing is when you have when you have an organization like the Lakers or any team in this league. This league is about four people have to sit at the table of success. You have to have an owner, you have to have the general manager, you have to have the coach and you have to play of any of those four sit at that table of excellence or that table of success aren't aligned with each other. This is what you get as chaos. And now the days of an owner being an absentee owner are over in today's professional landscape, as a as Lee, especially in the NBA. So the owners have to be involved if you're going to have success and today's sport, the one thing that is probably the secret sauce. If you will the one thing, that's lacking that we see which I think Ramona touched on, you have to have internal leadership, if you're going to be successful. Zestful franchise in today's world. Whether it comes from the players, whether it comes for the general manager coach or in this case, we're talking about the ownership, but right now I think the Lakers are looked are looking for themselves. Where's this leadership going to come from, and they have to also do the most I think, one of the most important things that every franchise has to do is they have to grade their talent winning covers multitude of sins. All of the teams have the same problems, but they need upgrade their talent, and they need to find the internal leadership, that's needed to even be considered where they wanna be, which they always talk about championship, but everything talks about championship if they're going to be a successful franchise moving forward. Well grew myself, I would say I mean what is comeback? I mean magic put it on the table. You know, he went to trial and he was prepared. And I don't think she's prepare and I'm a pig beg to what I said in agree with BJ is. Desk. The problem in the NBA will some NBA organizations, would hire your friends and not the right people for the job. You know, just look at all the things going on inside the circle. Kobe Bryant linked to rob Pelinka. He gets GM job. Kurt ramp is doing this. His wife is good. Friends, virginia. Bus all is tied together at the end of the day. Magic aims out. And I was with magic on like clear name brand, he did say in anonymous, he came out publicly and mad say what he had to say and he said, it's rap Lincoln, and I applaud footman because at the end of the day, they gotta figure out how they can fix this. But I do know one thing, one person they came point defending it, and that's LeBron James because this. Disagree? And I'll say this, not as a shot at LeBron, but what I'll say is, when BJ's talking about the four principles of success. Everybody's just way to be in terms of LeBron's superstar. Magic superstar Kobe Bryant has installed. Someone there to represent him. Kobe's a superstar genie buses Jeanie Buss. There are no like Indians. Everybody's gene, everybody agree that makes things even more combustible because LeBron's worked nearly a billion dollars. That's the eagle magic nearly a billion dollars as that's ego genie buses were five hundred facet. Ego Colby worth around Utah, other franchises. Don't have the intern Gregg Popovich is a head coach made some good money are Cebu for. These aren't the biggest biggest names and biggest eagles in sports. The Lakers are dealing with that in a city that loves this kind of reality show drama. And so, unwittingly, just LeBron just by they've to me just dumped too many stars into this situation and a couple of people need to just be Indians. They always had a superstar player. So the bronze role is safe and these other people behind this don't hire superstars don't hire Magic Johnson. Don't hire Kobe's puppet master puppet to be in there are some behind the scenes and Ginny defense she has to be careful about how she'll coaching in which she said. Magic. So she has to be buses of. Now by some very special guests, only Lauren done the authors of the new book, we chose you. We'll talk some football a second. But let's start with your book, Tony Lor. What inspired you guys to, to write this book? We decided to write the book because we believe that option is beautiful. We have seven children at home. They're all top. Did we wanted to support other families that have adopted or considering adoption? And there is a big need for families the kind of step up the plate into Dopp or foster kids. So those are the main reasons why we chose to write this book now would advice, would you give someone who's on the face? In terms of thinking about Dopp Shen candidly, I've had this conversation before, at always questioned would I have the same capacity to love a child. That's not biologically mine. What would you say valid question? I think it really has invested. adoption before you jump into it. But the really we found that there's really no difference. When your parenting your own birth children or adopted children. It's the same do. Will do. How would it be? There's a lack of kids get in your house. It's no different. It really is. And there's such a need. We got started in Florida, what eighteen years ago, we've got a son who's a senior in high school now. And we heard about the need, and how many kids were waiting to be adopted, how many kids, we're living in group homes. How many kids were part of the foster care system and. Touch me for sure. And it can be done. I'm sorry, one more thing in a positive way you say there is no difference. But could there be a greater reward or something that lame live children? They know that they were prayed for they were planned, and they were chosen so that to make them, spelt. They'll special and we, we've told our children that great example, our eighteen year old Jordan, as some special news born with medical condition. And after a couple of months it became very obvious us, the God put it together because we had the resources that the time we had access to the doctors I had great insurance and there's no way he would have thrived the way he has that he's ready to graduate from high school now wants to be a chef and it was just got putting them in the right place. How early did you guys adopt him? He was a newborn straight out of the house. Okay. That leads to my question. I've got some people close to me that are going through this process. Windu you tell a child that he's adopted win is the right time to break that news tool. They're never too young, so you have age appropriate discussions when they're little babies talk about it. It's just a natural thing. You're reading books you're having conversations and they hear that word, it's a positive thing. It's a good thing. It's not a secret. It's not something that happened that we're not going to talk about. And we've talked to our children from the time that they were small toddlers, and they made their that they know they're loved their special. And they're in their forever home. Brought to us in a different way to your point. My wife is adopted antenna. She's, she says, she talked about it or an entire child. Exactly. Oh, I didn't know that. You. I got Tony here at sorry, ain't great football coach. We gotta talk a little football ball. Tony rumors that Peyton Manning could be running. The New York Jets, we've heard from Reggie Wayne, who thinks that wouldn't be a good fit for Peyton to be the executive. He wouldn't wanna be fired by owner. Do you think Peyton Manning would make a good football executive? I think he'd make an excellent football executive. I don't think he's going to do it just from my standpoint, because he knows. He would jump into a thousand miles an hour twenty four seven. I don't know if he's ready for that. But if he does choose to do it. He'll be fantastic. He knows how to be a how to win knows how to be a good teammate. He knows how to build that seems like the million dollar question. What is picking manage next move. Multimillion dollar question broadcaster. We see turn down those opportunities. Now executive rose shot away. Do you have any thoughts about that? You know, he's got two young children and. I think if that wasn't the case I could see him being GM right now. But with the kids, I think he's got just a little hesitancy if I get into this. And I'm in that office all the time I'm right back to my football career even more. So because I'm not just getting myself ready now but I'm preparing a whole team. So I think that would be hesitancy. I'm not sure which way he's going to go. But he's, he's a talented guy. And he would be very good at it totally. Have you followed the Kareem hunt transition to the Cleveland Browns, and maybe you're involved, maybe they've asked for your inside or advice, but I saw where Kareem has given his life to Christ got baptized and the Browns. Freddie kitchens had to come out and basically explained they went and supported him of. I just some people skeptical jailhouse religion or whatever, and I'm like, no, no, no, no. And it's just it's just a gesture. No, this is not a gesture, this is something that. Can change this young man's life. It really can. And we're always skeptical, we don't want to give people second chances. I don't know Kareem hunt, but you've gotta take a man as word. You've got to believe that people. That's all everybody hit me with, with Michael Vick. Oh, it's just, you know, this is just to get back in the NFL. And I sat with Mike Vick in Leavenworth prison. And I looked in his eyes and I knew I could sense when he told me, you know, I the Lord was in my life, I got to the top of my profession. I forgot about the Lord and I made a big mistake. And I told any read I said, no, this young man is serious. You can count on Kareem hunt. The, the, the Browns took a little heat because the organization went to his baptism. I'm sure you think that's the right thing for the team to do it. Absolutely is. And that baptism was not a football event. That was a life event. And so as someone who's interested in his life. They went and supported him. And that is the right thing to do. And I don't think you should have to explain that are Tony still a lot of conversation about black NFL head coaches. There's only three right now of, I'm someone that has pointed to the Tony Dungy tree, all the coaches that you created off your tree black coaches, and I've looked at Mike, Tomlin and have questioned. There is no tree here and I'm wondering if we can as there's something we should be doing or pressuring NFL to do beyond the Rooney rule to help alleviate this problem. Well, the and the simple reason is if you look at my tree, it was all defensive coaches, and now we don't like defensive coaches. We're all in them with all fence and quarterback coaches and scoring. It's like we forgot that Bill was defensive coach. He's pretty good. Take care was a defensive coach one Super Bowls might Tomlin is one soup. Bowls. But no, we don't want we want the scoring machine and the young guns. I think our owners have to understand, head coaching about leadership is not necessarily just been coach the quarterback maybe revisions to the Rooney rule. Do you think it has executed properly or a lot of you had Rooney rule as about a spirit? Okay. And Dan Rooney's idea was you take your time you investigate everything. And you look at all the candidates, if you honestly, do that you'll get some good coaches and you'll get some minority coaches. But if you just want to check the box and say, I'm filling out the Rooney rule. I've already made up my mind. I don't care what I see I'm gonna hire the person I wanted to hire anyway, then you can't legislate that. So you've gotta follow the spirit of the Rooney rule, if you want results and I don't think we're following the spirit of it now. Tony, thank you so much for being here. Laura. Thank you. So here people pick up the book, we chose you about adoption white a great. Thing. Now by longtime NFL player Jeff's sports time to get. Antisocial mandar. Nell, Don L trip. Bag half ause, right. You came here loaded today. A mess with the Cowboys Ziguele Elliott is back in the headlines, the video service from this weekend Z knocking down a security guard music festival Las Vegas being handcuffed by the police Cowboys vice president, Steven Jones asked about it and said, it's unfair to comment at this point. Zeke it's got a big heart. These are all bumps people have challenges to the NFL action here. No, no, no. Not at all. Look Zeki wishes that economic down. Defenders that was a flop by other chicken wing wasn't even that strong thorough that said this needs to be handled internally this needs to be something that you need to be reprimanded but not publicly scorn because of this situation. I think there's just like you said, too early and a couple of details that look a little murky, then absolutely not investigate. They probably will. Because we know they love to when they really should not be getting players. This is something we talked about yesterday. His Asian has gotta get in his ear dude. You wanna get paid. You gotta stop. Having these things in public happen or cameras on you mentioned. It wasn't chicken. It was doesn't matter. It's on camera. It looks bad that NFL to stay out of it. This is Jerry Jones problem right now. All right. We got some explaining to do. I ain't I came across this Bobak video view from reason code takes you had some bowl to man. I think he lied now has a right to claim that he's as good a quarterback of my better than his brother. And I think the way Brady play, I think it took a little shine off him being compared to Joe Montana. And I think that for billing, I think it gives his critics and opportunity to go back and talk about spy gate, and he has won a Super Bowl since I think Peyton Manning's done playing football and allied manning. Clearly isn't he's in his prime I if he doesn't get another Super Bowl certainly planning another NFC championship and his resume continues to build. Yes. I think when it's over he'll be regarded in higher regard than pay. War. Thoroughly ahead of the story once a one hundred how bears saying, come on, we'll go with ninety eight. I would look. Many I thought had a career ending neck injury. At that time I thought he was does. Okay. He just one second Super Bowl. Tom Brady twice. I figured he'd win another one. Bad taste so bad, timing. It wasn't just one take multiple. It was like Brady Brady, obviously everything was wrong. Ninety eight is probably that actor you were sinking low into that seat. That was your early log on breaking through this. You with the cert the new boss? Oh, you were cute. How drugged up? Mike. My drink, Ed. Code aches, came believe. He did that to me. Who's over to myself as saying, we're for the first time in forty two years. The Buffalo Bills will let another player where OJ Simpson's number thirty two. We all know Jay was a phenomenal athlete. Trouble pass exceeded. His grain is on the field. When asked about this responded by saying, quote, whatever they do is fine with me. That's how I feel when I play their try to honor the team says I left, I've always tried to honor the bills and beyond. This is not something I think about there's too much else going on the life. Are you doing this hail? Now, you know, me, and I'm bills mafia right here. I mean, but we live in a different world or you know, not even tattoos permanent anymore. You know you get those removed and now a guy who put in work on the field. And to the point where you gave them this honour, which Ralph Wilson respected. But now he's gone and depart. So new ownership is like, hey, we're gonna take into the conversation. The totality of your work more so than just use the football player for our organization. I think that's fair. I don't. Like the precedent that sense that sense they should have asked him if the player could wear the number before giving it away, just like we saw doing Hassans, call Joe thighs and ask can I have your number I like you kind of know Jay for permission? Well, you can't it's not really gonna ask him. At least tell them, I guess I'm how I don't know. I feel like the jersey numbers tired for a reason reason, stay retired for that rea up missing missing the whole deal. Here. I blame the kid who even wants to wear thirty two which there that's my issue. And again, just in terms of not just and I'm not talking about respect for why would you wanna wear OJ's member? Oh. Do you think that he even really realizes what number he's asking for in buffalo? That, that's a real. Number that matters in buffalo OJ's the wait a minute. I bet you I bet you for this number Smith really doesn't even not aware about the whole story is. Yeah, it doesn't have to go. You don't know. Jay store. You may not know thirty two juice. Buffalo Bills, you might think, you know, OJ story but he doesn't know that. I wouldn't want to wear OJ's number in buffalo. I would say that, like not for the reasons I guilty, not guilty, all that I'm just saying, I'm not into taking someone who's jersey was retired and putting it on, like, I'm like, wait a minute. Why are you retiring jersey because it's almost telling you that we could do this to you as well. So why would I want to wear that number in that honor time now for Donald question of the day? Gazal yesterday Kim Kardashian without a tweet with a complaint. Jack in the box saying, quote, hey Jack in the box. I have a serious complaint. I won't fully put you out on blast. Check your corporate Email 'em by semi deal with the direct person for my team to contact Ratto. We're starting to see more and more slow or social media platforms as leverage.

Look taco out the American cheeses, full over the top of the top. Yeah. Oh, I wanted to talk. If I ever do anything, please put out a tweet demanding that I contact you. I want back. Fearless show in sports Woodlock, Wiley NBA champion Kendrick Perkins and ages. Former Chicago bull, Armstrong are back. Let's move to the Eastern Conference final where the books are looking back tonight after dropping game three to the raptors in double overtime Sunday night. Janta Kumho was in was terrible in game three. Putting up twelve points and eight turnovers before fouling out. But when the Greek freak was asked if he was disappointing. This performance he pushed back hard saying, quote, hell no, I'm John us. What I what I've done in my life. So far sending money to my family put my brothers in private school taking care of family in Nigeria and Greece disappointed in a game. I'd be disappointed in myself. If I was disappointed. Gangs. Disappointed with Janas reaction. I'm not actually it's amazing that we love the cliches that come from coaches until they take human form. You know, one of the cliches, you always hear Stephen keel. They'll get too high with the winds and don't get too low with the losses. Don't really look into it that seriously just be ready for the next effort, and he's actually living that drew and now we have a problem with that. So it's crazy that the same thing could be looked at so many different ways. And this kind of reminds me of guy who's, like, I'm not going to emit to any failure to show any weakness and I like that. I remember watching a lot of boxing matchups and you see them when they have their face off right before the fight starts, and there was a day where man, you've been looking is if you're looking you week you soft and then there was a day where like, don't look. Because if you look at I you going to humanize something about to destroy it just always shifts. This is a guy just basically saying look game over can't do anything else. About ready for the next one. No, I'm not mad at myself and what I did. I will be ready for the next one now mad at that. I'm janas. I love it. I love the fact that he just came out and said, took the responsibility of maybe I didn't play my best game. But you know what I'm here and the most amazing thing is they still had a chance to win that game. They were right there. So Jaanus understands. I think as a young player. It's great to see that now only he doesn't have to have a great game on the offense of in. He can affect the game in other ways even though he may satirically didn't play his best game. He still had an opportunity win a game. So if I were him, I would have the same amount of confidence going into game four well love, I'm yon but he has. He has the back. Okay. These, you know, why I'm kidding rent any when I backed it up, John, he got back up. But guess what? He's still being guarded by one of the best offenders in the league. And Coa so at the end of the day, we his. History. If you look at the one bad game he had against the Trump he bounce back and came back and had forty you look at the one bag game and game one that he had against the Celtics. He came back with the twenty nine and ten in the blow out. So he's he lives up to, you know, he, he takes pride in for like, if you have a bad game you expect him to come out and he's produce tonight. I think the only way he couldn't be disappointed because he didn't watch the tape. Hey it'd be disappointed game three. He was miserable. And I really don't he may have okay game. But I don't expect him to be phenomenal in this game. Toronto has a defensive scheme led by Leonard on him. But they put a wall around for Janas that causes him to turn the ball over limits. Him in what he can do and they got to the end of that game before he filed out. And he really wasn't even an option for them authencity. He was not an option. It was Chris Middleton. It was George hill. It was brogden. It was anybody. But Jaanus and at some point I was like in the Janas help some of the defensive and he's certainly freak on the boards. But I was on the offense. They to get married to out here. They and so I think they're going to frustrate him again tonight. And I but I think Toronto win the game. Because even though the game was close of Toronto had a few players didn't play well. So a while Linda was eleven for twenty five Danny green struggle of Larry file dot he didn't have his best performance. And of obviously van fleeing fully he got. He got. Well he's been terrible play. You gotta give something he gotta give Toronto of the, but I think Toronto comes out and get this winter night, and just just a just piggyback on what you said, I think they do have escape for John this. But Boston also had a game and he he, he had to go back and watch film because he's still got to where he needs to scream, but no Kawai at the head of I agree. Yeah. But it takes. You beat me in a close contest. And I'm Yoenis and I have off night. I tied my career high in turn. Over's like, and we still in the ball game like for him to soak in that moment. I think I would have been had a greater reaction to that versus the guy was just like I'm Jaanus, taking from Kevin Durant. I'm Kevin Durant. And I liked this response to a guy who knows how close they really were and he's still had a positive plus minus compared to Middleton. And some of the other guys, one of these wanna point out is game one Toronto still have the confidence to feel that they could win that game. You know, and being I was in Chicago at the pre-draft the Toronto Raptors filled it, they had that game in hand, if you will, and they have the competence to do it. Many people aren't talking about it. This is a must gain from playoff perspective. If you're looking at the series for the Milwaukee Bucks, because if you get back to, to, to, to, to going back to Milwaukee, Toronto feels that they have a chance. They they really won that game. They did everything but win that game in game one. So if I'm Milwaukee right now, I'm putting a lot of emphasis on this game trying to get up three. One going back knowing that, I can cause out the series. All right before we go. I want to explain why my favorite athlete. Magic Johnson just said a very dangerous precedent for young people. He quit his job as president of the Los Angeles Lakers and offered a week justification. It was no fun, working with rob linka. He wanted my job, and he stabbed me. Magic took his ball is five hundred million dollar Bank account and went home. It's childlike behavior that many in the media justified as righteous because magic lives in the protected space of celebrity adulation. It's also being defended because many of the ex athletes discussing the issue on television or inexperienced in the politics of corporate America during his ESPN interview on Monday magic seem baffled that his decision making face mild resistance within the Lakers organization. He was equally troubled by Pelinka's ambition and gossiping. According to magic Pelinka spread. The accurate rumor that magic rarely showed up in the office to work. Let me break the news to magic and any young person trying to learn from this Lakers fiasco. The typical workplace is filled with treachery. You will work closely with people you do not like people you cannot trust people who want your job and people who gossip about your work ethic quitting is the choice of the week. Magic and quit. Because God blessed him with rare athletic gifts that enabled him to become a near billionaire. There's nothing rights. It's about what magic did. It's privileged behavior, quite frankly. It's embarrassing. Magic allegedly. One of sports greatest competitors. Rob Pelinka outsmart outfought magic for control of the Lakers. I wanna share a personal story. That's illustrative of the typical work environment. In nineteen ninety four I was hired by the Kansas City star to be a sports columnist. I instantly set the town and the newspaper on fire. My bosses were so overjoyed by my success that in nineteen ninety six they decided to invest more heavily in the sports section of the newspaper. They decided to hire a new sports editor and gave me the final approval over the new sports. Senator. We hired the guy I chose the first thing the Newswatch editor did was tell my bosses that I was overpaid by my previous sports editor, then my new sports editor spent the next two years, trying to prove that I was overpaid at the time I could've easily quit and moved to a different newspaper. But that's not what I wanted to do. I owned that town and I hadn't fully milked the position for all of his word. I won the long War I stomped out my adversaries with my work accomplished, all of my goals, and left Kansas City when it made sense for me waiting for people to week or. To, to fight tooth foil, the know how. Let's move to Pittsburgh, where it looks like big then took a big step as a leader yesterday admitting that he went too far and publicly criticising Antonio Brown last season, adding that he still views Brown as a good friend, but it doesn't seem like the receiver feels the same way with AB appearing to respond to big bend by twenty two face. Marcel questionnaire, who's winning the divorce big Benner AB man. This divorce court go here. I think AB is winning both both parties will know that they've been in the fight. You know, they're gonna be some scratch is gonna be some issues. But look, big is he got to keep the house? All right. So get to stay in Pittsburgh. Right. But he ain't got no real friends like all these little youngsters playing fortnight those h r real friends, none of them successful they weren't there from day one. No new friends Drake said that longtime ago. Meanwhile, you look at an AB as like, okay, it's going to be. I gotta go seek in his independence, lands somewhere by all look what happened to you. You fell off. Oh, this is N. VP conversation quarterback and a Super Bowl winning coach. And eighteenth ranked passing attack before I got there. So this is a way that somebody publicly looks like they may have taken the loss. But because he's doing his way. He's not doing it as fake way where it's all these youngsters. AB said that don't really buy into what been robbers burgers doing. They just got to kind of kiss up into they get to. They level. I'm where be Big Ben one thousand percent ones. Divorce? Listen, I know Tony Brown got paid. He got we wanted. Big Ben is on the better franchise. The better coach better team right now. The better chance to win. AB went to the raiders the raiders anything in twenty years dysfunctional. We don't know of cars an elite quarterback or not right now. They're a division owned by the chiefs. Any read vision. Beat the chargers raiders all the time piece the Broncos AB looks looks like a diva in this situation. He looks like scoring lover. He's firing back Big Ben Big Ben apologize. You ask from two policies he did. What would you ask them? And he's still tweet about him. He cannot get over the Steelers. But his sincere apologies don't have the attracts that, that come with. I look you lost me. So Antonio Brown big band relationship you lost a star receiver and you'd think he could replace them. You may can but we know being number two versus number one is different for juju. We'll see what he does with that. That's the graduation that not a lot candle a lot of people on interest. See this offense this year, not having to be so dependent on thrown Tonio Brown having to do different things us more parts. I think Ben's going to have a fantastic year. First time in twelve fifteen years. People have doubted him. I said the Steelers are not going to be the team. Everyone's on the Browns bandwagon which is completely wild right now. I have a great year Big Ben the better situation. So the franchise as known for winning Antonio. Antonio team doesn't have a stadium to play in this year. To me. Been winning the voice because ABC still seems emotional and hurt. Oh, yeah. He's still calling names been right? Differ bay. He like this, where I'm used to sleep, but a big been, like, hey man, I'm sorry. I heard you. I hope you're okay. I hope your wife and kids. Okay. I hope you know, let's still be friends, even though we're broken up. Let's they'll be friends. It's best for the kids, and the whole family. Yeah. And ABC still mad on attachment to face and all this. So to me seems like then is winning voice been over these moved on AB has it. He's out there in Oakland. No, they're headed to Las Vegas Jon Gruden is more sideshow, and gimmick than perhaps Super Bowl winning coach their car again. Just like Jeff said, you don't know who he is big Ben's going into the hall of. But, you know it's funny, flip it. All right. So big bands over. Pause. Everything's good. That shows you all the way. In it in the first place. When we were together, you got over a death fast to the point where now you can go out there and say, this high invested were you, I like the fact that I don't like Antonio on Twitter all day. I will say, I like the he's emotionally transparent. Like I was all in remember, he's a self made man been around for burger tremendous talent. I rounded you saw this coming a little bit now, Tonio Brown. So Antonio Brown kicked me out the house. Oh, I've been kicked out before I've been out liar before. So you'll watch somebody who has that kind of ticker, he can make it happen. He can make something out of dust, Ben apologize for just one of them didn't say it was all in just apologized for an event where he went on, on his show and blamed Tony Brown for something wasn't his fault. Then there's always the only thing we have the private issues is what we gone that's gone. Jimmy's. Hear your thoughts on the cell phone. I'm sorry. You're talking to me. I like mine. My beauty right now. Let's go and get two big dummy today. Big dummy today. Go to anybody said up here. Bad mouth and Jack in the box talking about chicken sandwich. Don't went downhill after at four o'clock in the morning. Boy, you get what you get about damn time. Becker because it was actually ten he him not for in the morning. About food. The big dummies. All right. Here's a highlight for discussion earlier about LeBron James is more valuable than Steph curry, but King James is not as important curry style of play has changed the NBA and his team. First mindset has created a consistent culture of Winnie. I won't make this mistake of exaggerating individuals greatness based on team success. All right. Uncle jimmy. What's your take on Steph curry versus LeBron Chow sad day today? Jim ain't got no jokes today. Really, where you don't sad day when I got admit that my nephew's, right? Whoa, ooh. My good day. I'm be honest, which Steph curry is going to surpass LeBron James is being one of the greatest, I can't take you seriously. Right now, bro. Let's break it down there. All right. Go, let's go. Let's, let's look at Steph Steph got everything you need to succeed. He got structured support. Foundation. He got everything child need to succeed in this world today. First of all the main thing you got great parents, great coach, great organization. Great teammate. He has everything that LeBron James needed to be the greatest player of all times, say now me myself, personally, I can, I can relate to LeBron because LeBron come from similar backgrounds. We come from intercity background. We come from a single mother. We've gone through all of the problems that you have to deal with coming from the inner city, you know, we had both Cain had a situation that a child out of wedlock, so therefore, all those things put us in a position to where we had to be the man of the home, as so many times, you take a kid and telling you the man at the home when really he's still just a man. See how me he's still a child apologize, but looking at don't mess with me. Put the bottom line is Steph had the ability to be a child. Lebron had to be a man and he had to adapt the mentality of man, and she'll say do so now he's I mean I respect the Bron immensely. I got number love for him for him and all of his concerts. And LeBron look Steph, like damn, I wish I had one of them. He like, what you're talking about a daddy, or I wish I had one day. What a great coach. I wish I had one of them. Was that great teammates? If LeBron carrying from a structured environment. It will be a lot easier for him to accept criticism from somebody else. If he came from a structured environment, they could build a structure society with you can't build with Steph Bill because he didn't come from what Steph came from. Staff trained from Dale and Sonya. They prepared Steph for this. Lebron prepared for this. He's done a great job. What do I guarantee you? What? Steph as a changed. He's a chief, that would a hell of a lot stress lot less stress than LeBron and had to go through to get demand. Goes you sure look you up the ankle year you joking. But look look at what LeBron's going through. But now look at what he's done for his kids. Look what he's done for his family. The fact I'm trying to tell you is now LeBron junior that might be your next Steph curry because that brother got laid out for me. You wanna deal. Six probably thinking about that. One out. All. Brownie junior could be the next Steph curry year. Braun has built. Yeah. So LeBron James is Dale curry, your luck being better than daddy that ain't happening. How many reasons daddy got? I mean ring Gergen. Gergen. We gotta go. That's we're gonna be. About two that I got Steph gold status at eighty nine. That's eleven points, twenty four jobs for twenty four all time greatest twenty four character seventeen authenticity eighty nine. I'm basically with you. He had to go up a couple of categories Steph curry ball best playoff series, the ever had turns us the ticks points. That's amazing courage on his best when they're at their undermanned right now. Pay. Okay. D- boogie still baller. I see your brother.

Okay, like come on home so actually questions, you know, but certain things will be targeted topics that I will be talking about and this is just like the introduction of the FJ so positive like your pilot for your podcast. Your potential just like your pilot. You see how things go, right? Yes, I mean, hey, I know it's going to go great, you know saying, you know saying who need those years the wall stick or slide down you stick to the world is going to stay legal state is it's gone stick. I know it will. The Lord and he set me up with all of this for not to stick. And that's another thing we are believers. So, you know on this show we will be having you know, what do you call it the ratio? Yeah wage topics quotes just things to inspire you, you know, like I said, you know, we've been together for ten years and of those ten years we have been married six. So we we're in the whole dating scene for about four years right four years. Yeah. Buffy sighed a one rough. Okay. So now absolutely brings me to my first topic my first episode that's not included with this introduction is the whole situation of why have my guests as well and we're going to be dead. For about how we got there too. I guess you know, so I'm going to ask my husband this question Mister Herrington. Can you tell me what well, how did you know you were ready to pop the question to your wife? Well, well they take reservation of who I was talking to the time to spend our conversations or feelings or views or goals and all in one and besides the person I'm going to be with you know this time of Earth, but you off unless you send me because yeah, I was trying to be funny and so I'll ask myself the same question Miss Harrison. You know you wanted to answer that question. Okay. Well, I knew I wanted to answer that question because obviously I love my husband and when we were dating, I loved him and the knocking on the door if you guys can hear that or you can't hear it. You know, like I said my show will be raw. You know what I just said I And seven kids so you can expect for my kids to come in this room and knock on a door to you know, try to be included, you know, they they want in on this show off and I'm pretty sure I would have them on the show. Maybe the old ones. I don't know about the younger ones. But yeah, we have the twins in here too. So if they wake up, that's the podcast is over image is done cuz it's their time. So I wanted to answer his question when he asked me because like I said, I knew I loved him and we had been through a lot of been together and I trusted him and so I was like, yes. And so we've been together ever since it's been like I said, it's been a total of ten years. Next year will make the 11th a year and the thing about it is I know how when you get married, right you have to go to the courthouse the day before right? And so we had plans on getting married on March 25th, but because of that 24-hour I guess it's like what a grace period and we ended up getting married on his uncle's birthday. So so, you know, that's kind of it was it was a just a a title change left over there for years and we had our children. So she's a tire change really low tire. Tangled me giving you my name. Oh, okay. Here's me. We could come in at home. You know, it's kind of like a football basketball, you know that that those training camps so we had a full year training camp. And so by that age you gotta learn to play book you you come a veteran you understand what's going on. So once you come that starter, you know, you you just a title change and name change and we own a team together and we so what you're saying is we were already married right during their home. Your process we just didn't have the I guess is it the legal part also practice practice practice has moved his practice in the real time fast-paced. You know, there's not a walk through this was live and move you get paid. Yes, because oh Annam Brahma receiving a phone call like when we were in the the whole dating part of it. I remember seeing a phone call first met his grandmother while of y'all dog, but when I first met his grandmother, she said you got my grandson down they're shacking up. I was like what and we really shaking up means I had my sister Samia this lady told me that I was checking out. I was like girl, what does that mean that mean? I never heard that term a day in my life. Is and so she told me what it meant and I was like, oh, okay. Okay, but I mean, you know like wage I don't really know what to say about that whole shacking up part because you know, we're not even going to go there. Okay, we're we're not going to go there, you know because nobody's perfect. So therefore that happened we got past it the Lord delivered us from that and we're married now the Lord prepared us for it. So we're closed right now. So we're not going to discuss day. Okay, so, you know, we got married on his uncle's birthday. Thank you. Holy Spirit for taking me back to where I need to be and y'all I get this from past the winning cuz I watch past winning every morning at 8:00. She is on Facebook and Instagram and on Remus sound radio off. And I loved her show. And so she you know, she goes live and she doesn't really have script for nothing like that. And so, you know, I enjoyed it about her and so often times when she's talking and she gets off subject. She's like, okay. Now, where was I at? What was that? I can't remember where I was at and then she tasted second and then she says, oh, thank you. Holy see see y'all gotta have a relationship with holy spirit because the Holy Spirit was reminded her where she was and the Holy Spirit just did that for me because I have a relationship with the holy spirit. So like I was saying I just wanted to get that out there and y'all if you want some morning inspiration. Like I said pasowanie is live 8:00 in the morning on Facebook and Instagram, I think on Facebook is on truth and fellowship. It's on their Church page that she goes live and then Instagram she goes live on off. Winnie Winnie the winning when he show are winning winning winning winning. I mean, let me just pull up my Instagram until y'all. Oh, yes the name her name on Instagram is the winning Winnie. So that's what you would follow on Instagram. If you want to go look at her shows in the morning. They're very good. Very inspirational. I enjoy it. All right. So anyway, so we got married on his uncle's birthday cake wasn't intentional. But you know, so we we we share his birthday and our anniversary not together, but with his uncle and change one thing that I want to say about that if anybody ever, you know gets married and it falls on the in-laws birthday, I would say don't do it. Yeah, me too. I was just about to say don't do it, you know, make sure you pay attention to the days like we were so excited that we were getting married that we didn't even pay attention. We didn't say. Oh no, let's do it for 27. Together so long. Yeah, you know. Who just decided to do it and at a time when I can think about it? It was his birthday. I think even told her birthday, but you know, oh, yeah. Yeah like we were choice at it. Yeah, so we really pay attention to dates. Like I said, so, you know when you're when you're trying to plan trips and stuff and then you like we you know our family we celebrate birthdays and stuff. Everybody's birthday. We come together and celebrate so and usually parties on Sunday. So it's like when you're trying to plan your anniversary trip, if you go out of town or whatever you're trying to do is like oh man, uncle uncle pastor. And so it's like you gotta, you know, try to adjust to that age, you know, just I mean some of y'all don't do that, but you know, we respect our family and you know the events that we have off. So yeah, so we got married on a family member's birthday. I just wanted to share that experience with you all and you know, a lot of people tell me that I am a submissive wife and I am and the reason why is because I trust my husband I loved my husband. He says the missing what do you mean by submissive like Bible cuz you know, you might be interpreted like, oh you do everything I say or something like that that is now dead is just that some things decision making some times and situations. That's that's going to build us up. We will rock, you know, bring to the table when we bring bring it to discuss among ourselves. So so that was looking for a new home or what not. We looking at will look at houses together, even though I might work a lot wage. Going to go look at a house together and we put you know things that I like and things she like together even though more to her liking, you know, as you know, happy wasn't happy happy wife happy home of the lifetime like that. So when that turn we try we try to collaborate off. I'm more with the happy team win the game when playoffs or win a championship Championship. I'm all with the happy team happy life or a happy God-fearing team prosperous life took the blessing team prosperous life. Not not not so much one side and happy wife happy life. You know what I might be for other people, but then I don't comb. That's not me. But so what we go ahead and send you seeing in my bed. That's all I had to say. I wouldn't go there anything else to say about going into in-depth with it. But and I'm just sitting here looking for the bottom for us right now. So it was like so it says Colossians 3:18, why is be willing serve this is the Easy-to-Read version cuz this is the translation and I understand wives be willing to serve your husband's. This is the right thing to do and following the Lord Jesus. I want to I have reverence for the Lord. So I want to you know do with the Bible says and here on this first that's what it says. So that's what I do wrong. And so back to what you were saying when you was asking me that question about like the views on it like you list me listening to everything you say and stuff like I think that's how long People view me when I listen to you. Like there's certain things like with this whole coronavirus thing. I wasn't able to attend some events. And so I was like my friends, you know, Hey you coming. I'm like now my husband said no, I can't go so I ain't going sorry and then, you know, like, you know, some people feel like well, he ain't your Daddy. Yeah. But at the same time, I trust him, you know my hug. I trust my husband and my husband holds my best interest. And so therefore if he tells me know, you know, then I'm going to respect that just as the same way if I say, okay Blake no, don't do that. I know he's going to respect what I say and not do it now want to know, you know, some ins-and-outs of why I shouldn't be pursuing whatever I'm trying to do and what not cuz I stay at home. But I mean, I mean, yeah, depending on what it is not like I'm saying no, no just like you're not saying no. No cuz like, you know with the whole situation a pandemic going on, you know, you told me no, but you gave me reason behind like from inside. Yeah, you matisha, you're pregnant what are twins we got children off. You shouldn't be putting yourself at risk and so understood that so therefore, you know, if I tell my husband know of course, well, I give him Insight on why the ins and out of it. Like did you really think this through like come on? So yeah, so I guess that's how certain people view me as being a submissive like, you know, some people think that is hard to be submissive like I would like y'all it is so crazy like I remember having some friends and if my friends listen to the show you I'm talking about you age. But but I remember like I used to tell me I'm a teacher and a black girl you you you doing too much like you sent up here cooking and cleaning and I am telling me he been going and kitchen and fix his own food. He better fold his own clothes and all this other stuff like, you know like that and so now so we just have some technical difficulties. We're at a time. And so we're back here recording again. So picking up where we left off. I was talking about, you know, how you still my friends like, you know, I was doing too much but now the way of saying, you know there to that mindset of you know, where they want to, you know, I guess be married now. And now getting on things changing or whatnot and when you are with someone and you know, that's how I do things in life things do change individuals change motor oil change bodies change Minds change. So being in a relationship you have to be able to you know, accommodate your partner on changes. They go through what not and vice versa you want them to accept your changes will and the end of this all love and appreciation and understanding. Yeah, so I'm assuming that they're to the mindset now where they're like, okay, I want to be married now and you know the positive from that is that I'm glad that you know, if she was able to work through me, you know, you know, cuz all glory goes to God, you know his grace on my life and everybody else is you know, I'm glad that the Lord was able to wage. You know help me meet them. They'll meet me, you know, however you want to say it and for me to be inspiration to them of you know, how I handle my wife duties, you know to my husband. I mean, they're not necessarily duties because I love my husband. So I love what I do for him, you know, sometimes they can be dead, you know, but it doesn't change the fact that in the day. I still love my husband know whatever makes him happy. I'm going to do that for him.

Elevating Focus w/ Winnie Au
"Welcome. The dogs, the people a podcast about how dogs make our lives better. My name is John Bartlett. Winnie is a Brooklyn based photographer dogs people, food and spaces. One of her own photo projects in recent years was a dog portrait book with her sisters called the Canine Chronicles, which was an imaginative retelling of some of the last century's most important historical moments with dogs at the center. But most recently, she's worked on another dog related photo series called cone of shame that takes a traditionally sad image of a dog wearing a medically prescribed cone around their head and using the voters as a where to turn the perception around the images are meant to instead make these dogs look majestic, proud and beautiful. So when he told me about your personal life with your dogs right now I have a dog named Clementine s she's lovely, and before that we had a corgi named not yet built thirteen. So our tar teen was a like she was a show dog that couldn't be a show dog because she refused to. But. Who knows I didn't care about that. We wanted a dog that needed a home and I think that was the case for us. It was the first when I say it's me and my now husband but. She was our first. Dog As adults we only had her a year and a half and we basically discovered she had throat cancer. It was actually really an emotional rollercoaster for me and my husband because we had just fallen in love with this dog and we had this little family and we were taking her everywhere and she was just like everything for us, and then all of a sudden we were in the hospital and going to chemotherapy appointments, and we did take her to as many appointments as we could. But in the end I, think after about a month of suffering, it really just seemed like a, we have to put her to sleep. And in retrospect, I don't know if I would have put her through so many doctors, appointments and treatments that moment twin. Have to put her to sleep in her passing. It was pretty tragic both me and my husband didn't expect to be as upset as we were just because she was living with us and I think even when I've had family members like friends pass away it was different because there wasn't that like those friends didn't live in my home. So I think having somebody who we were used to seeing every day and waking up a certain way and everything all those little patterns and routines you get. Really made it hit home and we were just like kind of a mess. Course I get it I. Get it. Yeah. I had a dog. The love of my life tiny Tim and just one day I was feeling touching his throat and I felt these huge. So it was like these enormous enormous Pearl Necklace around his neck Oh turn up the D. head lymphoma and I did this I mean it's a very similar trajectory I took him everywhere. We did start chemo and then I said I kind. Of talked to my husband that time in my dog Walker and they were just like, what just let him know that I'm be we did some other things like homeopathy in different stuff. But by the time I did finally taking back to the vet. She said, you know it's everywhere in maybe a few days later in he'd told me it was time and. I was I was a wreck Dan I've lost dogs since that and certainly each one has its own grief pattern in sense of loss. But I know it is it's really hard and he just not prepares you for it ended it is it's very different than losing loved ones, parents, friends it it is, and I think your point is really true because they're living in your home for me. My whole life is revolves around my dogs I mean they get up at five thirty every morning and you know it's like what can I get done in between walks in feeding them? Yeah. Take over. Like our WIFI network is called Clementines Castle. There is the reason because she's definitely ruling over us when he when did you start taking photography more seriously and make it more of your focus and how did that evolve to your career as a photographer internship in Boston with a great commercial photographer name Joshua Dulcimer and kind of sealed the deal for me from that point on I just only focused on photography. and. I started studio managing and assisting different photographers and then from there moved to New, York to. Continue, assisting Madogre Brooders, and digital tacking worked for tons of other photographers over the years before done launching by own career as a shocker for and all in that time I was taking my own pictures of course. So I think it was back in Boston that I. I actually took my first dog portrait. It was kind of a pivotal moment I. Think in my at least dog photography career because I wanted to take what I felt was like a different approach to dog photography. And kind of treat them more like paintings I wanted to create a series that was elevating dogs and not just shooting them as these kind of the very cute but I didn't want it to just look like cute photography I wanted something more. So I started doing a series of dogs in the owners homes and the first one I took was of just a neighbor's dog and when I gave the print to the owner that guy just started crying and I think that was. A big moment because I saw like what I'm doing can affect people and years later he was like all bombie passed away and that that photo you took such a a big memory like for us like they were just so cool that I've felt really strongly about being able to give people something that they could treasure forever. Oh. Love it. That's beautiful. Now tell me about the canine chronicles. So that was a book project that I self published and made with my two sisters might middle sister did the writing Cindy? And then my oldest sister Alice did the design and we launched a kickstarter project and basically raised all the funds to do the printing and it's a historical fiction and photo book told through the eyes of dogs. So we basically reimagined all these famous people owning dogs and made stories about them where are the dogs were really the ones leading to these people's success. So for example, like Amelia earhart Senate and her suppose a dog in all is the one who's like by her side while she's flying and helping curry. It's really cute and I think. A lot of our veterans have enjoyed it and lots of kids enjoy it because the stories are quite sweet Oh perf- it would agreed experience. Now on your website, there is a series called the cones of shame, which is one of the most beautiful images I've seen of of dogs and just just the way that you have approached this captured this I'd love you to speak about the cones of shame series that's been a series that has took over my life for few years. And I basically had this idea to take that iconic image where I feel like I always would see dogs wearing collins around and every time I saw it like the shape was kind of burned into my brain. And every time a dog wearing, Cohen I. Feel like you have this mixed feeling of like sadness and laster like it's not like I wanNA laugh at dogs but you can't help it. When they get home and they're walking into walls and it is a little bit of both sad and funny size like i WanNa do something with that image but kind of make it happier like prouder that was sort of the goal with the series was take the cone kind of image that people have and turn it upside down I worked with a costume designer name Mario Marvin, and she helps me design these beautiful collins. She has a fashion background and we work on commercial shoots together. Is while and she was able to create these kind of sculptural cones for each of the dogs, and then the goal of the project is really to raise awareness for rescue dogs who need funds for surgery. So I think part of it was that experience I had with thirteen. Made me very aware of like, oh, medical costs and just like how to deal with money when you're in the middle of very traumatic experience. So really doing the series I wanted to make sure other people who had. To have an emergency surgery or any kind of medical need that there would be funds available that you know you wouldn't have to make a decision about like, should we do this or not based on money? Exactly. It's been great. We've worked with Amil Haven and basically any funds that have been raised from the project I've donated to their recovery road fund and we did a fundraiser with them. It was like a fundraiser slash adoption event. So that's amazing. Yeah. I've never heard of the recovery. Road Fund that that is such. A great idea because I know that I've and I've worked in shelters worked in rescue I mean. So much of the money that is raised really does to saving an animal's life and in friends who are listening please checkout Winnie's website, which will speak about because these images are so stunning. I mean they are just they're like fashion shoots in a way but really really sculpture. Gorgeous. What is it like having a dog as your subject? I always like a challenge. And firm people the coal is more like photographing toddler. But I think the size difference is something that I'm always thinking about when we're casting and working on shoots the variety of looks and just how they are is really amazing and then it also creates challenges because if you're styling around them or whatever you're doing the objects in environment they're in, they will totally change based on the size of your dog shu-sung. That's always a challenge in addition to I think most of the time I spend like chasing. Not Heavily, chasing dogs around, but it feels like kind of like being a wildlife photographer everywhere you kind of have to sit and wait and hold your breath, and then you know hope that they they do this thing especially in a studio shoe, we often have like a marker on the ground that you know this is where the lighting is perfect and with the person it's pretty easy to stand there. Yes or the dog it's like some of them are incredibly good at it and others absolutely do not want to do that. So I think you know going into photo shoots in understanding what you're walking into is always important and I think on their attention span is also like a toddler so I would never put a dog unless it was trained to do this to work for a ten hour day like a human. Usually we have them do a shoot for like an hour maybe two. In usually they're tired of pooped in. It's just like okay your day is done. You did a great job. It makes me happy I think every time I have a shoot with dogs. I'm everyone onset is happy sure. I think there is something about the the energy that they bring to a photo shoot that really makes the day. Of It tell us about where we can find you on Instagram I know that Clementine has her own page and then you also have your page or profile where it depicts your work Yes. So My instagram handle is Winnie while. W I N E W O W my website is Winnie while Dot com occur and then clementines handle is Clem Clem, the Bassett. I'm such a huge, Fan Winnie thank you so much for spending some time with us today on dog saved the people all here. Thank you for having me. When he's a very gifted photographer and I loved hearing more about her wonderful cone of shame series, which is just so beautifully done. It's a terrific concept terrific cause and the images are absolutely stunning plus. Of course. It's all about dogs when all these things come together. It makes for a really really special project and I can't wait to see what she does next.

122 - What if worms wore pajamas and played with toys?
"Aw. Kids. What if you? If you could travel back inside, welcome. Hey there folks in welcome back to what if world the show where your questions, and ideas and spire off the cuff stories, I'm Mr. Eric your host and today, we've got a question from Leo. Hi. My name is Leo my favorite. Is going to wash Vegas and in. My question is what if where? Wore pajamas and laid with toys by loss Vegas. That's a new one. And I also don't think we've had any good worm characters before let's get one more question from a patron named Winnie. I like playing the fourth games college games in my what what games could play themselves by sank you so much she has sent in a lot of questions and this one really matches up well with Leo's question. So let's find out nuts. Fast misery alabaster zero. Very salem. Don't gene same. No. I mean, the very same as in Sam who I'm shouting. Oh, well, good for you. And thank you Sam adept way. Cool her you gotta one shout to give today they use much as Ben YO admit on your five to give today's or like kind of a slow week for me. Fred, what have I told you about gloating? You said gloating is not nice. But then you forgot to tell me what gliding is. Anyway, I got so many does to give. To Connor and William that, that's kind of gloating. What you're doing right now. Dave, listen to my fed interview fifty six thousand times, are you? Sure about that a shout out to hunter his almost eight years old. Okay. Connor and William and hunter thank you identify shoutout to fair win. Okay. So it does affect e our our A N Ferron. Okay. Thanks, Barron and last, but not least Dowell will be a big Buckey wolf shout out for own all the Owens, the well one in particular. But if you're listening in your name, also, and then I get does. So you can stay kind of for you to. Thank you. Oh in there in hunter, gunner William and say now, let's find out what if board games could play themselves, and what if worms were pajamas and played with toys. One thing you might not know about what if world is that different creatures have different ways of getting there. Now, you kids, of course, can just listen to this show. Pretty easy me. I usually need to get into my studio before I can really see what's going on there and worms. Well, worms need a very particular. Patch of dirt it happens to be very close to where you live. It's known as a wormhole, and it's no bigger than a fistful of dirt lers, always a few worms wiggling around in there. So if you find one make sure to cover it gently back up with dirt and give those worms a chance to get home. Speaking of which they were to worms in particular that we're just taking their very first trip to what if world their names are winning Winnie where and worm and Leo Rigaud. You also might not know that worms are Mafra Didik. They're boys and girls old rolled into one. But when Leo got to what if world sort of felt like he was a boy were just the same. As Winnie felt like she was a girl worm. It didn't matter. What parts they had? That's just who they were a Winnie asked. Leo. You wanna blaze a match Vig is with me nothing. Please me more than the action figures with by new what if filed friend said Winnie and the two wild away the afternoon playing with Leo's toys before they knew it. It was starting to get dark, so Leo and winning wormed into their pajamas. I have a great idea said Winnie who prided herself on her great ideas. One swear in our pajamas. We should plays Moore. I have a t set at my patch of dirt. And I got that new board game sparkle up only that sounds like so much. Fun said, Leo. Leo and Winnie hadn't noticed a crowd of worms. They were wearing pajamas of old different kinds, fulling flannels and nightgowns fitted roads and silky matching sets. Honestly, if it weren't for their pajamas. You couldn't even tell these worms apart. What's so funny asked Winnie girl were asking boy were to play girl games like tea and sparkle -opoly? We already played dolls together. Technically, those were action figures they look the exact saying, no, minor different colors. So at girl worm can play with action figures, but a boy worm can't play with tea sets. You get it. Job forbid worms and all the other worms wiggled into the dirt believing Leo in Winnie alone. Again, that's a double standard. Besides there doesn't need to be girl toys, and boy toys at all said Winnie who priding herself on her bright, ideas, tended to get very upset when things didn't make sense all these worms and knew what if world, and it's hard to understand things. So they think of girls one way in boys another way in mom's one way in dads and other way, an old ladies one way an old men another way, it helps them understand the big wide world confront be kind of scary for tiny worm brains while just because they can't understand us. Does not mean they get to make fun of us. You're right. It's not fair. If I had it my way, I play games all the time. But forget about it Winnie. Let's just go to bed of soil. And Leo disappeared beneath the dirt not fair, not nice and not acceptable complained winning until she had her own bright idea. She took her sparkle utterly game. And her teeth set down to her secret laboratory, all the smartest worms have them. And she set to work in vending. Who knows what? Well, you probably know if you listen to the what question. Shouted the bright glittery board game as it came to life wonderful now your board game that can play itself. So maybe Leo, and I can watch you play without anyone laughing at us sport glue issues. I. I've got to start playing right down. But the game was so bright and sparkly and mystifying that when he could look away. It's three games three. My happy side has won three times. And my even happier side has won three times allow I've been here for hours. Maybe I should invent something a little more cooperative suit your so I'm just gonna keep sparkle. Yeah. I get. Okay. I know. I'll invent the self porting. Intelligent, t set Hal Collett spits for self pouring. Intelligent. All the invented me said the pink t set spraying warm tea out it's spout. Every time. It spoke. Oh, excellent. Let's go find Leo Spock kebob awfully coming high wooden business reunion for all the sparkley sties in the shiny verse simple level. No one for fife when he scooped up spits and sparkle -opoly and made her way to Leo's batch of dirt. Where all she found was a note gone to lost way gifts where boys getting play all day and night that we feed to Las Vegas fats, where real find our friend. And so when he still wearing her worm pajamas nodded herself around spits and sparkle -opoly and started burrowing all the way to lost week. Will they find their way will they reunite with Leo will he be allowed to play whatever games he pleases will. Find out after a brief message for your parents. When miss Karen. And I'll look for presents for our nieces and nephews and little cousins were always worried about if it's fun enough if it's educational enough if it's going to reinforce bad habits, we go on and on with people looking at us in the toy I'll like where crazy which we kind of are.

She finally reached this brightly colored city. She was overwhelmed by all the sites and colors winning sparkle -opoly in Spitz search through buildings with giant glass shark tanks, and a waste sees with real palm trees and walking towards and eating toys and magic shows and secret gardens, but they couldn't find Leo and any of the places kids could go. Get your hot air balloon rides hula. Chris what if the cried Abacus p Grumbler Abacus, I thought you were a teacher on the weekends on the weekends. I said balloon rides across what if world my also worked for the government. You know, you'd think all of it put together I be making more money so through through could you give the wide? Yes. We need to see all across last week guests or else, we might lose our friend. Your friend wouldn't happen to be a worm. Would he hasn't? He'd worm on very many in lost wages.

Goes I forgot to ask Mike Efi Found. The Chihuahua was on my sleeve right there. So, Q. Laura Gill is you don't have a dog. Do you. I. Don't have a cat who acts like a dog. That's actually the best kind of dog. Cat who acts like a dog Laurie Winnie When he tries to eat your food, cats aren't supposed to do that. Wow, does he big? Does he like come to the table and big? And if I put my hand, so I try to stop them from trying to eat my food by putting my hand in front of his face to just kind of like make him look away and sometimes you like hisses at me because he really wants the food. We are cats are very catlike. So if you offer the human food, they look at it. They go I'm sorry human you must have mistaken me for a dog. I wish my cat did that. Maybe, I'll deign to try it.

Boston Andy Nocco of and you're not Co. dot com fame Hello Andrew Lo look that looks like a great shirt to wear needing barbecue because no stain whatever like. Why am wearing it? I wore a nice bunch. Today and turned out. Steve some barbecue in that at some point. Oh well, but this shirt, you can't tell you're right. This is actually one of those great shirts that my friend Winston Churchill sends me from time to time. He calls it his his Patriot contribution these come from abrazos design in San Miguel Dan, you can buy them their online and it's just Saturday design dot com, just great patterns and wonderful shirts, and then all the way back from his trip to Cupertino over the last week for his big briefings.

Eighty and then I was trying to order a PS five and I was trying to order an xbox. Warren's botts. They were just all gone. I'm so based I got up at eight am. and Went Oh it's September twenty second Oh and of course, they're all were all gone. I wanted to give the xbox series Ex. went to all the possible places. So you have a theory on that. Yeah that scalpers just spread all these bots and I think there's also probably less supply because twenty twenty, such a hot garbage can of a year right but I think also the supply that there is is is eaten up very quickly by the from all these scalpers and unlike apple which dealt with this I think pretty well few years ago when they were having a bunch of issues with this and they made us, you could only buy two iphones, Ero- and you had to have a credit card and they put other protections in place. It doesn't seem like these companies have done much and people. Doom. scrolling twitter before the show and people are so angry at like one thing after another. So Salty. So angry well to confirm your theory, I just went to Ebay and yes there's quite a few listings for pre orders. Eight, hundred ninety dollars here's one for more than twice the asking price eleven hundred forty nine dollars a thousand, ninety, nine dollars. So these are. jerky jerks. Who maybe they were just lucky desperate but maybe they're just jerks I can't tell you know I don't want to be a judge Jiji tight. Also I would make me nervous to order this. Or sure because you know they, they don't even have a product. All they have is a preorder. I'm not sure I'd want to send somebody. Money for this. So they're very. Involved and you got the companies involved in is bad for everybody because the these games should go to people who wanNA play them right? Not People money off and why is it so easy for us to recognize this jerk behavior to buy up a limited resource so that you can sell it to people who are desperate at a huge markup but when it comes to things like water when it comes to things like housing that's perfect business. Yeah. Yeah that's just All the water a we'll find out I can. Well and you know of course tickets, it's a real problem with tickets to so yeah there are ways I guess but even I mean, honestly, I would guess that Microsoft said one per customer and it doesn't matter that's not going to change it. You're still going to make your five hundred bucks if you can sell it. On Ebay. So I don't know. If you'd lineups to like they would sell their position in the lineup. Phone. Yes. Remember that. Yeah thank God. We don't have to worry about that anymore. You in a way, we do have to worry about that because like I can remember Apple Watch maybe it was serious three having a similar situation where it was sold out to like, you could still order it but your pre orders were really far back. You know months back and I was seeing stuff on Ebay that was like by my right now and you don't have to wait three months to get it even though people could have waited three months to get it. Does still happen is not as bad as it did for the the two consuls but then again. Like when's the last time a new playstation or xbox came out the last time they came out they there wasn't preorder wasn't really like a seeing on the Internet like you went and stood in line at your local game stop or whatever, and bought it live. You didn't you know there wasn't this kind of advanced stuff like they do now with it. So it's new for them to. So Rene. To reiterate my question, you got briefings, right We all got invited to non briefing. So that would know somebody who actually got briefed would be cool. I I actually. Did you know it was just later than renee? Okay. So, what was your we can chat we could, yes Lori and Rene are you allowed to say well, obviously, lorries allowed to say she had a briefing seems like Rene being a little cagey with us here I never no I never know 'cause they always like. Some companies cares and companies don't. Feel, like if you say somebody else didn't they get people know in life fo- invitation. Said you can't say apple says from anything you learn from this briefing, you can't quote this briefing. I don't know if it said you can't say you had a briefing. That would be a little bit and say if. You can't even tell somebody you're brief can't handle the truth it's deep, but it is what what journalists deep background you can't attribute it to apple or anybody else is just part of your general understanding. So I'm not GonNa ask you Loria Rene what you learn the briefings because that would be getting you in trouble with Apple and God knows I've done that for enough people enough so I, don't want anything. I don't want to incriminate you along with me but. Let's talk. Let's for me I. Don't know what. But for me I just ask questions most of the time it's just if I if I'm not sure about something, I see people on twitter are really confused about something or there's any way that you know if they're having problems, I just had to ask all the questions. So then I can go on twitter and try to give the best answers. Yeah. I'm excited. I order to watch. It's not gonNA come 'til Monday to do either. One of you have a watch you could hold up and. Display. I see a lot think the red one was easy to get. There you go there. And the this is the other one, the E. SO Laurie, let me see yours because you got the woven band. It looks like, oh no. This. Is Actually they? Sent me just as standards variant. Yeah. So so a number of people who bought either the woven or the new you know the not. Remember what they call the non class. SLOOP and a great. Number of people are saying Oh crud. It's too big. Comes John. Let's see. John's to. He has to wear a little higher up on the arm. Did you get the? You got the rubber one or the the rubber one? You got the week. Can How can we show it without? Breaking the bubble of our covert quarantine. He can throw it at you. Might not consider. I'm hearing a little bit about this but. So I guess people are saying that the printout that they that apple uses. Is I don't have any of the new bands yet. So I don't my experiences still in the unknown won't get that until next Monday but I read a thread. I think it was I just scenes re tweet of somebody else saying that there's was two sizes too big. In that thread people said, it was too small. It was too big. It was small. It was too big so. Simple don't measure well. I'm wondering is it our fault or is it apples folks? I don't know you know like I printed it out I put my little credit card on it to make sure that it was the exact right size. I. Did all the things I was supposed to do. I measured my wrist. They said that though in the threat they said that some of them printed out and ninety one percent or chrome defaults and ninety one percent and preview defaulted the something else and a lot of people didn't bother to make it full size and didn't realize that was a credit card sites slicer. So it's not that apple's sizing chart is wrong. It's that didn't understand how decide print one to one or two size correctly pull it tight or I mean there's a lot of different kinds of apples fault because they put like words on. Yeah so She tweeted Mike AC Activists who said He went to the store to try it on and turns out he ordered his two sizes too big by the way bad news apple treats those orders as one order. So in order return the band after turn the watch. So my suggestion is just don't return the band. If this is your first Apple Watch just need to get another band from Apple. Most of us is not our first time to the watch radio. So we can fit multiple sizes to like I. Got there. Really I talked to a lot of people like I talked to Gruber and a bunch of other people and they sent us the right sizes and I don't know if they have some sort of wizardy. No. Cupertino. But like this this fit like how does that fields and deal? Okay. Yeah. It feels really feels like the the other. How do you put it on? It stretches enough that you can just like a rubber band. Yeah. Okay and it goes back on. That's actually. Plan I think if you get the rights to fit the seven and the eight and I think I might put the nine because there is some overlap. This one is perfect. Seven is a little tight I think the nine might be fine to, but maybe a little too loose. So I'm eager to see what the is when people start trying multiple versions and then. So Mike is too big. And I think I might knows what he's doing. He printed it properly checked compared to credit card which you're supposed to do you pull it pretty tight you want pretty tight on your wrist I don't know why yours is so big John but they seem to be a couple of sizes hears about two sizes too big. I would say yeah. So. Might. Actually. That much. They're like half an INCH OR QUARTER INCH And it doesn't take much though. He says he he got. He's going to get at Tennessee if if it's better But the just saying about two sizes too big. But as you said than some people say it's too small and. If he only had stores open, this wouldn't be a problem but everything's the worst time they have done this. Yeah Yeah I know. Yeah. Just, go in and check. Yeah. Very frustrating or by two, and then send back the one that doesn't fit. In stores are like the sizing things in stores are working well though these. In theory. I wonder what they're doing in store. Dif-. Different than you know that one of the recommendations that apple has if you if you don't have the ability to print it out yourself, you can measure with with the tape measure or you can actually make your little ruler and then it tells you based on the inches around your wrist what that number is. So I actually, I tested all three ways because that's what I do for my job is I make sure that everything works. And I did measure what my actual risks are conferences, which I don't remember what it is now and compared it to the suggested size and it was the same said that I miss is five. So when I used the paper, it said I'm a size five and when I measured my actual inches on my wrist said five so I don't know. Maybe maybe on some people. I mean I don't know. It seems really weird that it would I mean just like what you're saying that you know Mica. Printed out, he made sure the credit card right and everything, and it still came to him to size it came to him to large. How you like what's what's the? What's the little misstep there that apple didn't catch that that is making its that. So many bands I mean, it's not a ton of. This is probably typical. I. Know With rings and things like that. It's not at all unusual for people to get the wrong size. But if you have a retail store that's open, it's not a big deal but don't then it becomes a larger issue especially, if the bans are in short supply, that's the other problem is if if you set it back to get a new one and you're going to be waiting a few weeks. So. Yeah. Even if even if you're just sending a band back like if you didn't buy a new apple watch with the band of you just wanted a band like the most of those are also not available right now. So just sending it back with me and waiting a couple of weeks enough about the band. PSA It's a good warning you know be careful but what do you think? So let's talk about new features and I fixed it did it tear down I think that the forty inch? Battery was like ten percent larger in the something like that, and it's forty four inch battery was less little less large millimeter. millimeter what I say. I won the second one. Meter thank. You. For correcting. So are. So what's have you had it long enough to have battery life since lorry or is. Renee did so I. Yesterday. Yeah. Just came yesterday and I don't think that it was fully charged because the more I slept with it to just make sure that I've got a lot of people are going to be doing now. Thanks to the testing that out and at six am it was at low power so I popped it onto the charger for just an hour and it was charged up to eighty five percents just in that our. Great. It's coming apple that you'll wear it at night and then charge it when you take a shower in the morning and you'll be fine. You can. You can literally wear it almost all day Rene Zip in your experience. So I'm doing testing right now and I didn't zero load for the first cycle, which means I didn't do I didn't run the workouts I didn't run the anything I just let the I charged it wore it let die I did leave it on for sleep tracking. So I wanted to see how long it would last. It lasted thirty six hours. I didn't believe it. So I did it again and it lasts thirty six hour. It lasted from the morning through the night till the next midnight and you have. One meter band. I have the. Think, it's just brush battery and I didn't have to do it like it's a fresh install. Well, there's no, there's no sort of updates. Things like that might be where I'm where my battery is different as I I set it up as from backup. So I've got all those APPs and loading and storing. So that's probably why my initial day wasn't as as good as yours. So that's All the workout. You're smart do a load free tests because really the load can make a huge difference workouts really can kill the battery I. Don't know yet about the blood ox similar. That's my version of on phones I do poke among because nothing is the batteries hard as focus on going here I'm doing work fees and workouts and and. And and I I had. I just for my review because I didn't feel really qualified to talk about the new sports features. I. Got Raise Ahab on the line and heeds that extreme adventurer who runs across the Sahara hundred days and runs across the Arctic and he was loving it because he he does veto to Max all the time and he loves having it on his wrist and to get the little pulse ox things. But didn't have them with him and he runs altitude. He says, he doesn't care about the distance. He's always going Max altitude and so having the always on. Auditor was great for him and being able to see the screen better. So for someone, I think there's always a lever I I really wanted always on display for years. That was my thing at work. It's an Apple Watch the distance, not a good watch and finally gave that to me last year. But I think for the people who are who care deeply about the real I don't WanNa say fringe edge fitness but the real deep levels of things like video to Max p. o. and all those things. So it'll be like a candy store for them. Do either one of you. have either one of you check the OX senator with an actual to see if close. Have Not I have one when I get it I, get mine on Monday I will definitely compare it to a block similar although honestly. I mean, I've heard it's very accurate but apple is not legally allowed to say how accurate because they haven't gotten it approved. So it's considered a wellness feature, not a Medical Tho- interesting but. I think with E C G it's taking so long to get into. So few countries, right? They didn't really want to go through that again. So now it's available everywhere. They're just not allowed calling it a medical feature, but from people I know, I've spoken to have tested it to think it's it's using very similar technology and it gives you a very similar accuracy to those little finger from the pharmacy and gadget was saying it's a little finicky about placement on your wrist and all of that have you had either you had difficulties getting a similar to work. At all okay. They recommend before you start it. The little notifications shows up that says not to have it too far down on your wrist like. Back from your crystal little but pass the bone I think. Yeah. But I guess I just automatically where that way so I I didn't have any issue at all. You have one of these What do they call them stretch band watches. Loops if you have a Solo and you've got to properly sized, you probably would have it always accurate and they don't want you to move because it's fifteen seconds. So they recommend you put the watch face facing up and you put your hand down on a table run. If you do move in it and it shuttles around a little bit stops and yells at you gives you makes you go through the instructor manual again. So tell me about the always on. Is it a lot brighter noticeably? Rene. You'RE GONNA be able to account for that because I come from series forest. So I didn't have always on. So I don't know the brightness difference, but I would like to talk about my enjoyment of the always on on. S. When they fixed it because it was so frustrated in the first year like I loved it. But the you tap notification, you would tap it that would wake up the screen but not hit the notification and I would always forget. Again and now it blasts right thrown could forget that glass right through now. So it's always on and go to tap it and get a second notification sometimes like no, I wanted the first one. So after just that is that. Is that a fixing the series six or the or watch? If you have five or six that's been. So it's a software. A seven fix for five and six. Okay. Sorry, go ahead is brighter. It's like to I don't know if you can. I always forget which way I'm going with this, but that's off. Looks like. Oh. Yeah. On my series five, I think it's brighter to would that be the case? I shouldn't because I believe it's there. They got a better better panel efficiency, which is letting them late it up more on the series six. Okay. But it's good if you're outside is outside the brightness is more of an issue. I, go outside and was pretty surprised at how clear it was in dark like in Dr in sleep mode or whatever. But like love and I know this is a watch os seven thing I love that. I you know I. So I use a workout APP that. I interact with on my on my Apple Watch a lot. So I like skip to the next exercise by tapping my wrist and on this four that I've that I've had this all this time. I'd have to wake my screen sort of tap the screen just to wake it up, which is very frustrating when you're holding bar dumbbells or something like that. But now it actually just appears on the screen and I can tap it really quickly and it's so much nicer. It's there. It brings my anxiety level down as weird as that sounds just have that happen. Anything else to say about the watch I haven't I keep washing my hands and making squishing sounds and I never get that. You have to turn that all the time Oh yeah. Cooking. Now, like if something is sizzling like onions and I'm turning pepper mill thinks that that's Turning for twenty seconds. Thing, for me is that they manage to get eighth thirteen thunder and lightning cores into the s six. System in package like it's one generation look generation removed from the IPHONE. Now obviously is obviously not as big and it's powerful and doesn't have the thermal envelope or anything, but that's silicon team is just doing startlingly me. Out of the announcements that they made last week and he's really Because the IPAD air has a five nanometer processor in it has six cores as four. That's one point eight times more density than. It's eight billion none of this was necessary but it's flexing. We make our on silicon now. So why not? Well. The way that apple silicon works is they don't they don't want to be a merchant silicon provider and they have other customers and they don't want apple to become like, Oh, we've got the the apple. Watch. Is a customer and the IPAD is a customer. So they WANNA make a scalable architecture that they can do things like eighth thirteen cores in the apple, watch and put the same chip in the iphone that they put into the IPAD, and then at extra cores to make that work on the IPAD pro inconceivably the Mac and that lets them have really big efficiencies and. It means they can concentrate their talent and their time, but it also means they have to be really smart in making chip like maybe the image signal processor gets hit much harder and a phone than it does in an ipad but maybe the ipads thermal envelope is way bigger. So it gives you more overhead to use those really intensive APPs on the IPAD that you went on the phone that it's that one architecture that spanning all those things, and so it is a wicked flakes in many ways, but it's a flex that makes them so efficient and so high-performance at the same time. Oh I mean. If I were them. I, flex to I mean. It's it's a flex we all benefit from right. You know love those guns, apple, keep it up What else is there to say I did Laura. Thank you for that tip. I did not have the I thought it would just happened the hand washing, but you're right there's a hand washing setting and it was off. So I've turned it on the next time your washer and you'll be really annoyed and you'll be mad at me. For no no, no. No, it's nice. It's it's it's good. It helps you remember to wash. It was really disappointed executive I can't with washing my hands hoping that. Senator as well it's not. Okay. Go in intense. Yeah. I have to say I. I was one of the skeptic's in the first few iterations of the Apple Watch. You know wore it but it was like man, it's not a huge improvement especially because it wasn't really a watch but. I'm super happy with my series five and I can't wait to get serious I. Think Apple is is really has really created the Best Smart Watch I've it's just amazing. It's useful. With without question and your and your rent wrong. Remember that took about apple a couple of durations before it figured out what the Apple Watch was all about. if you look at the at the launch event, they certainly talked about fitness, but they were also as eager to talk about Oh what a what a lesson wonderful APP. Environment it's going to be like having a little bit of your phone on your wrist and everybody just basically started throwing garlic and crucifixes at that concept, and as soon as they realize that we built one hell of a fitness watch and that's what people were responding to. They said okay. Sorry forget what we said. We're GONNA make the best fitness, the the best wearable and the best fitness watching the same package. I get there's nothing like it. It's it is enough to make a lot of people switch from whatever non iphone they're using right now to an iphone. Well, it does really drive that. Isn't it that I find adoption because you can't use it with anything else go ahead Rene. Argue that it's it's it went from this like. Way For you to not have your phone in front of your face all the time which nobody was really that excited about to a fitness device that everybody was really excited about. But there's also a bit and all that other stuff to what it is now, which is a health and wellness device that to me it's the G it's the fall detection is the blood oxygen monitor that helps us better understand our entire sort of medical wellbeing it. That's even different than just a fitness tracker this ads like something other than that too. That makes it stand out me from all of the wearables just because. It's doing what it's doing is gathering all of that data and turning it into this overall sort of health report on your entire body and your you know your sleep and everything. So it's it's even gone further than just a fitness device. Well, you're absolutely right because I I just I just want to say that apple was Apple Watch is certainly not the first watch fitness watch to do oxygen levels. It wasn't necessarily I at many of the things that that it's noted for right now, I'm taking a look at the fitbit sense, the new version, the new version of. Shipped about a month ago or something and it does have blood oxygen oxygen level. It also has a stress sensing that Then that's something that the Apple Watch. But what but like Lori said the big deal with the apple watches how well it can take all of this data and control and combine it into a very, very clear picture of what's going on with your health and your body today not even necessarily saying, okay you're in good health today. Okay. You need the doctor tomorrow but simply saying here are some numbers. Here is what the numbers were. T yesterday here's the numbers were a month ago and by combining all. Of this data together, it might give you an idea of Oh that was that week that eight like absolute crap all week long wonder like I wasn't exercising no wonder I wasn't sleeping really well, perhaps if I did not perhaps if I were not to like take advantage of the All ben and Jerry's one dollar a pipe fail at the stop and shop have to eat it all in one week perhaps then I would not have a quite so much trouble sleeping. Yeah. I. also think that it's it's. What's interest watching something for? There's some there's. A feature for everybody so It's all of the above that any one thing mean. I do weird things like I like it that I can record audio on the watch for quick notes used drafts asked it's amazing and and I use a day one journal and I can quickly record an audio in the Journal says there's little things like that or and I never really thought I'd use as much as a phone but I answer phone calls most of the time on the watch just because it's easier, it's quick and apparently people can hear me. So there's just it's surprising. I think everybody finds different things to like and to me that's a very good indicator of the strength of platform. If if you have enough features in it that there's something for everybody, it won't always be the same thing but there seems to be for everybody and then there are people I would imagine most of them who find more than one thing because I also at me if I if I do a workout without starting the the workout, I feel like I didn't get any workout. All Rats in count I. Mean You Really WanNa keep track of that stuff so it's good. Put on my oculus question I can't do that anymore I get a lot of heat on youtube because I said I wouldn't want the because it requires a facebook account people say you just make a fake fake one No I heard you in Georgia. You guys were right I fully support you. It still bothers me I don't think they should be required. I'm not ordering this quest to because of it's total tangent online ordering. And you're youtuber. Yes, they said you sound like a boomer. Leo. Also also, kids facebook is well aware of that trick. They have other ways to figure out who you are who you say you. Fake accounts into one big dossier. No prostate. Back. On a burner phone that I never used within fifteen miles of my house and never have activated whenever I'm within Bluetooth range of any of my friends and I will never stop any. Okay Yeah. Right. You're doomed. Anyway you may. You May as well play the really cool VR games and just. That it either if you get the SEC is one of those watches se Rene or no yeah. Okay. So tell us about the difference. So, the S. E. is sort of like a Mitch, a mishmash of the four and the five it it the way I think of it as it has the safety features. So it has fall detection has the emergency SOS for it doesn't have all the medical stuff. Though are all the health stuff. So it doesn't have the e CIG and it doesn't have the new blood oxygen and it doesn't have the latest generation things like the always on display. So it really is an iphone four plus sort of sort of a an idea where you have the basic design and then the latest sort of software amenities that go with that. Okay. So it's not. It's not a this is why it's confusing. It's really a case of saving money on certain sensors. Then we're going to take out a chunk of related functionality. It's just kind of all over the place because those electric. Yeah there's no electric heart readers CG, those sorts of things it doesn't the same kind of panel technology the let's do the ultra low power zero frame road for for always on display that sort of thing, and this is how they got it down to two seventy nine is taken out on the more expensive pieces and yet I think still desirable both for. Well, for anybody wants to get a Apple Watch for less it's still pricey I mean. This is not an inconsequential purchase. If you'RE GONNA use it for your kids you're gonNA WANNA buy a cellular version which costs more and have you'll have A. Variety and just dropped the cost of their cellular connection on the watch somebody which was talking. Yeah. I'll have to check what their new. Qelia. So why even bought? It was what five bucks a month with activation, an activation fee, but So it's not hugely expensive. It's still. Think think about. All right. Would you recommend? Would you get it? I'm thinking from my mom maybe. It would be a good choice. Yeah, and for anybody who wants to watch but doesn't WANNA have like by a phone for that person? That's why kids and others would be. Yeah. But also like to for like if you have an elderly relative and you worried about them. Following or something happening with them getting lost it's excellent because they don't need a phone anymore if they don't WanNA phone, they don't have to have one and you still get. You can still check in on them. You can still message them you if they fall down it'll it'll call for help if they if they get lost, you'd be able to find where they are. So it has immense again, not all the well, not all the health features, but there has a men's safety features. Yeah. Great. Yeah. That's something that occurred to me but the new band designed to because it's slips on your wrist, but there's no buckle. It means that it's less likely to like drop off and so it's not. It's not like being under house arrest me you have a tracking bracelet on but if you're about again a kid or an elderly relative, your real, you know that. you don't necessarily want them to have to remember to strap this thing on every single day and strap a strap it off again it's. It's an interesting way to do. It also probably means if you are doing if you're doing interesting fun things on diving into water, you will not your watch will not show up one of those youtube videos where. Official divert. I decided to go to this Waterpark Hey iphone eight apple watches and the they always have the exact same like rubber like snap. Snap Bracelet on. So yeah. Correct myself rises ten bucks a month T. Mobile's ten bucks. Yeah, I. Think it's ten bucks across the board what I saw I saw five buck. I felt verizon lowered for new maybe. I first month's free kid. Ten. Bucks is ridiculous because. Just, as ridiculous, you already have an account. Especially when you don't So I up until family setup I would've I would've told anybody don't get the cellular plan it just you just never use it because I've never used it. I've mentioned that last time I've never left my house without my Apple Watch. So I mean without my iphone so it's really unnecessary to spend ten dollars a month on that but now that. There's family set up. There's a lot more of a reason you know it'd be I don't know what the plans are GonNa be, but it would be really nice to see the the cellular companies give a discount for multiple watches on a cellular. So maybe it's ten dollars for one, but it's only fifteen dollars to something like that. There should be. Much. The apple one bundle. Terriers are so funny though those like they imagine a pizza delivery company asked you how many people would be eating it and charged you based on the amount of people eating the pizza not just the size of the pizza but that's what carriers. Devices same data, but you have to pay for the extra device Oh to people are eating your pizza same pizza. You've got to pay for the extra. Wow. I never thought of it that way up there are mixed up hardware. It's it's space business, right? And you can also think of it the way you would like a hotel room or something, which is the motel room is probably more like it where two people it's one price. But if you bring in friends spend the night, you have to pay more for those extra people. So it's it exists as a thing even though it seems silly like why why do I pay more for the same stuff just more people using the same stuff but it exists. So why the world is not fair. Hair. Did either CA I know apple didn't say anything to you either of you. But. If they had were, they've said anything about a ship date for fitness plus. Just nebulous. Here. Finish plus I think. Apple one is earlier and fitness plus a little bit later. I forget what the exact order was. One was this one was This was later this year right? So I think it's I think apple one was the first one. Yeah. It'll happen and then eventually down the road get fitness plus which is so weird what can take so long to make fitness plus have been planning this for months. Years Years Covid. Cove it really. Blame. For everything I do I certainly do two weeks to October six. I wouldn't mind having an iphone announcement two weeks maybe three, it'll be two or three weeks, right? I hope so. We don't know anymore. Where we are, we are seeing a lot more substantive leaks right now that we have in the past three weeks. So maybe it's because more stock is being shipped out more data's being more people are being trusted that normally don't get trusted until they can't possibly do any damage, right so. So. Weird. Like today's was Eddie they had eddie it leaked out that any cue spoke to carrier in Europe, about their launch plans for five G. and how they were. The first carry to bundling Eddie sitting can only imagine his his living room or study or something, and it occurred to me we're seeing so many executives like not all of them have the Tim Cook Desk that looks like the apple store architects to set it up a lot of them are in their living rooms and you see people people who are famous technologists or like close to Saifi and they're in what looks like Victorian Oily Factory You Imagine. Yeah he's I think he's sharing a Panos Panay. paneled living room. For sure. That's a surface duo camera. Terrible. It's probably a MAC book. So we are. This is what this is the quote from British. Telecom, we are just days away from days away from Apple's major launch five G. phone. This is an internal presentation. Shared with bts, customers our employees today. So but days could be two weeks. Days could be fourteen days or they're they're they're metric days because they're an England. I don't. Yeah. It's it's not gonNA be next week. Days probably weeks well, you know it won't. Even, though the invites and the event announcements, it's it's different this year I'm still seeing like they're giving us a few days notice didn't they give us a week's notice for the Apple Watch events so I'm thinking about two weeks notice again. So if it's if it's next week, they probably should have or would have given us notice today or maybe at the latest tomorrow. So I think you rightly, Oh, I think. We'll I think what we if all goes smoothly. Next week will hear about we'll get the announcement of a of an event, the following Baker that's that seems about rights. It doesn't it goes against the rumors though of of it being. On. The Week of of October twelfth at that has been a big rumor but I'm also thinking maybe this might be that apple was just ready sooner than they originally planned and maybe they'll go a little early. Also Google Google's having a pixel five. Twenty. Third or twenty three. Week from tomorrow. Because, we're streaming it. So Our First. Pixel event that gets me to why Samsung phone. Okay you know what I did I miss I'm almost ashamed to admit it but I I returned the Microsoft do oh Yeah and I'm GonNa take a good. I did like it but like it enough to use it. And I can't really justify fifteen hundred bucks or something in us. Original And you're hoping the second gentle be better well as a not just not just the full, the original iphone whether a lot of people who suffered with a with a not terribly great phone compared to what they could buy at the moment because they saw they saw things that they've always wanted to be able to do with the phone. They couldn't do anything else. So I hope that Microsoft doesn't. Go I have I have a box of gadgets of things where Microsoft had a really great launch event and then they had a version two of the hardware where was just We're we're doing some in per. Person Briefings, and maybe there was a third version where they did a digital press release and that was it and then you never heard from your. Don't you? You. Do Have By Microsoft Fitness Watch I've got a couple of, Zunes, got a it's. It's a nice. It's a nice little. I, actually do have a spot watch. I didn't I don't have the. Magnet version of spot but I do have a spot watch actually actually it's funny I when I was a packing to move a few years ago I came across it dropped in the chargers. Let's see what would happen and of course, it was all it gets all of its news fi FM radio and that's that's all been turned off but it's frozen at the moment and like I don't know what was nineteen, ninety, nine, two, thousand with the last like Oh, my God. There's a company called facebook and they're thinking of going or something anyway. But yeah, it's a it's a it's a great idea. I would be really really excited but it'd be more excited about it for an apple product because apple doesn't again it'd be. It would be like the Apple Watch where I don't get it but I know that they put a lot of into the hardware knowing that they always change the software later. So. We'll see. Yeah I I. Yeah. I. Hope it's not a Microsoft Health Bander spot watcher akin I hope it saved platform going forward I suspected as that decided to do is take the money put it toward a galaxy. See full to just to see try the other designer additionally Oh. Did you get the bogged? Though I might have been I did get. I like. Who? Tom? Brady. He's a famous designer occupies. All. I know is red white and blue stripe. That's it. That makes it. That makes it two thousand dollars thousand dollars more. Yeah. No I thought it'd be interesting. Try IT and it works out if I send my note ten back. For a five hundred dollar CREDIT IT turns out to cost the same as the two of so. I'll we'll try again. This is why you don't make. You don't make fun of first I heart radio. Philly because what they do is they prove that it actually works, and then suddenly you're saying Gee, I wish apple made a phone that folds in half. Yeah because. I finally, I finally went. My friend says finally bought one of the third generation devices and Gosh it looks nifty. Move Nifty. Every year by the next or the Pixel, and this is the first year I'm thinking the Pixel five doesn't look that much different than the Pixel Four. I might get the fold. Yeah. It's it's a rebuilding year after after the cussing out that Osterloh, gave the entire crew a month before the launch of the Pixel Four. I think the batteries very good. What they did. You really get like, okay. I guess we're have you for the last year. Rick. Correctly it's like Oh. Dear. I didn't hear about that. Wow. Okay. Oh No that was it was it was a about literally the launch of it was in October and this meeting was in late August which he outlined everything was disappointed about the Pixel for. Pixel five I think my pixel five is I am. Not knowing what the iphone would be exact pauling. That's why that's why I. that's one of the reasons why I bought a pixel for a because I thought that I thought I believe that whatever I believe. That Google is going to need to have an entire year at least to catch its breath and what it wants to do, and this is this'll be a very, very good year to see how far you get with a three hundred and fifty dollar phone because that means that in two thousand, twenty one, I'll have much more money in the kitty left for for five G. Phone beat an iphone or a pixel. Samsung. Pigs before I like my pixel xl it's a it's a nice phone. It's just not dramatic I. Just thought it was too expensive for what it was. Well that's everything. It's better than it wasn't long. That's true. But it's fine now, very usable. And and for for all, my saying, Ou don't make fun of those folding screens because in three years time the same time I'm the person who is like God onboard radar that will. Walk. Hand gestures. That could if they actually do something with that, that could be really cool and now they're saying, yeah, not so much. That was toby. That was dopey I was it was. For. Them. Every year it's like today not tomorrow. We're GONNA put us all. We just want experiment with everything that is android and you're like, but I like that don't take it someone else will do it. No, they won't. The Punch. The hole punches is an evolution I don't think I think that you put in because you have absolutely no choice but to put in a notch or you can't think of any ideas around pudding because if you have to put all those three centers in the front, there is no way to put the only alternative to a notch is to put like a forehead in it and no one's going to let you do that. In the same year. Like I don't know if we did a million or they just want to do something to help android like so that they feel the pain of all the android manufacturers and they can make sure it runs well on all of those devices. So they do one of each. Let's take a little break and that we still have the IPAD to talk about now, rumors and things and stuff Laura. Gill here is managing editor at I'm more DOT Com. Rene. Ritchie at YouTube dot com slash Rene Ritchie and when is your? When is your apple? Watch you had a first look review coming up soon had it on boxing I do I'm hoping for the towards the end of this week I'm getting all the pieces in place look forward to that. And and the. Better lawyer you working on review are you going to do the review? It'll probably be the end of this week to. Man The deadlines. See I like my life's easy. I just get this stuff play with it and go hey, I think it's okay. That's pretty good. I'm actually looking forward to try and the fold I I love the I love the idea of a dual screen device but. It just didn't quite make up make make a lot of reviewers are saying no, the fold actually now is pretty usable. So it'll be interesting because I'm I have I have to say of the of the two designs. I'm really excited about the the interface ideas that are capable of your love inside a folding screen. Yeah. Excuse me a a two screen. That's why I thought. I thought I ordered the duo in lieu of the fold because I thought Gee. That wing is not my thing. You can make it into A. It's just so big. It looks. The phone mascot for T. mobile it's like no, it's like it's like on a DC comic from the nineteen sixties we're like the the villain is named like Tumbler and so like his phone is the shape of the letter t and his is the shape of the letter T. I like the idea, but it was just so huge. Foam very odd. Looking on the idea is it's well, it's kind of like the sidekick I guess in a way because there's two screens really and. Once were is there just one screen and a little screen. Half screens. Okay. I don't I just don't. I don't get it. I. Get. It I mean maybe. Pro? Send the fold back. Get this. Yeah. I'll keep my search will continue. For the. Phone that Quist and fold. Twist and shout the Origami phone. Display is any anybody chat room have a wing and LG wing anybody try it. That's right. Okay. All right this is expensive time of year because. All the new phones come at all at once. I show today. So maybe I better make some money are showed that they brought to you by twilly Oh, actually I spend money until you I've had a Tulio account for years I love. Twi- Leo if you are building something interesting, you will like Twi- Leo. The world's changing fast you want to build new ways to help customers can with Twi- Leo engage customers. Anywhere they are at any channel from text messaging to emails to phone calls video with one single powerful platform I've had a twilly of phone number for many years allows me to all sorts of things and I'm just kind of a hobbyist in the hands of developer unbelievable Twi- Leo is at scale to by the way listen to this. Seven, hundred, ninety, five plus billion interactions across all those channels with five nines of uptown. Ninety nine point nine, nine percents up time three, billion phone number's available at everybody uses trillium shop. If I use his Toyota run their entire global contact center supporting more than a million customers. That's that twirly Affleck's product, which is totally programmable contact center solution. Really Sweet. Blue Apron powers their newsletters with Twi- Leo Send Grid. Their email newsletters net flicks secures your online account with two factor authentication from Twi-. Leo. Twi- TWI- Leo Makes Offi by the way, which is my favorite authentication program Antonio. OFFI works best with. People who use twilla makes it very easy to get that to factor working ridesharing and contactless delivery services like lift and Uber connect riders and drivers over text messaging with twilly, oh. Yes that's built. That's built into the APPS products and operations teams use Twi- Leo to create new ways to communicate with their users inside of the applications things like account notifications, text messaging, chat bots, two factor authentication. It's all there. We had The guy who wrote off -I in the. Studio back when we had studio audiences and I just I I I said I'm not worthy. You made a great APP and it's and I said explain to me why these guys are have a different kind of interface and this though their customers, that's why it works better. Marketing teams use Toyota get the word out connecting with leads over text messaging and phone calls to send campaigns over email to build chat bots to answer questions is all of that with Twi- Leo. Customer Service Team, you can build global contact and support centres with Tokyo Flex its fully programmable context center application. IS AMAZING IF YOU'RE A. You can control the global communications network with just a handful, a few lines of code. That's why I love Tokyo. It's built Ford developers by developers. You don't need to specialize telecom network engineer to build amazing communications APPS. It's so simple. Your developers are already building web applications than they know how to build apps that can text call chat and video conference using Twilla, strengthen your customer relations by uniting communications across your entire business. Go to Twi- Leo Dot. com. To learn more today. Twa. L. I. O.. Dot Com Twi- Leo. It's time to build. Awesome. Awesome stuff I've been really a serious fan of Tokyo for a long time. So I was really pleased with called. Thank. You toil support Mac break weekly. We really appreciate it. Thank you developers Mac break with weekly listeners for supporting us by using. By visiting Toronto I. Guess They don't have a special address or anything but. Just, going, there is enough. Tucker own must be listening to make break weekly. They smart. Bolivia the apple store. The Apple TV plus and on Apple Music Down earlier today they're back up now. Not. Sure what that was all about I thought maybe Oh, they're getting ready for apple one but no. I was just down. Just downtown. It was just Iranian enact Russian hacker groups. Yeah. Backed by back by government government spying. encrypted solution from Germany called to note the. And they they've been. They've there I think it's all right now they were. Te Nonstop for several weeks up and down up and down it's very frustrating. Bad guys are so bad. So do either of you have the new air by any chance per chance. Matt's. Okay, well I mean it could be more than that. They just October. They didn't give us any kind of gate. I'll be very interested I. Hope we do benchmarks on those just to see if that new processor how much faster thinking they're not making it available because they know the iphone is coming with it and they don't want people to. Be They announced the eyesight so it's possible coming October means coming with the IPHONE. So that'll be the area fourteen BioNIC is the iphone twelve chip. It just came out. It comes out a little earlier in the IPAD. Is that what you're saying? Basically man it was announced earlier with we. Will come out any earlier got in the IPAD got. A good chip? Chip. It'll be nice to have that in the phone. Jim Tower was twit on Sunday and he said Yeah. You shouldn't really think that this. This kind of impacts the eleven inch ipad pro. In any way there's enough new features different than the IPAD pro from the IPAD. Air. The faster processor by itself does not push the pads pro eleven out of the way. For single threaded operations neural engine and machine learning, it is the fastest thing that apple makes, which probably means it's the past thing and mobile right now, the IPAD pro still has two additional CPU's for additional GPU's twice the memory bandwidth, six gigabytes of Ram a lot. But in twenty hurt refresh rate Quad Stereo speech this. Yeah. Yeah. If you want to do any sort of. High End graphics work or any sort of large file were the IPAD PRO is still it's a race truck instead of the race car, but it's still a race struck, right? Yeah. That's why that's why this is going to be an interesting distinction for them to try to mold for most people particularly the people who come with expectations of a tablet having not quite so much capability as. A desktop anything that doesn't anything that doesn't come with a hinged on a and a any keyboard can't possibly be a high-performance machine. It's GonNa be hard for them to understand why these more expensive ipads even exist. There's going to be hard for them to even get that kind of value out of the extra money that they spend. The IPAD, air is gonNA is really the. Volks Mac for for everybody and it's behooves to make sure that adobe keeps on working for a photoshop for IPAD that all these high performance. APPS really show off why there needs to be an IPAD PRO and PAT air instead of just simply saying, we've got an IPAD air and we've got an IPAD air that also has a terabyte of storage and send twelve twelve. GIGABYTES. Fram. The IPAD. Pro Coming really soon, which came to well. I mean they just. I mean I I hate for apple to hold office was sake of holding off and they have done to ipad pro to ipad refreshes in a row beaded both Spring and fall twenty twelve with the three and four. Because of was under Powell note, they didn't update the eleven is just the twelve inch. Point nine that's the one that has on it. They don't think they did that for the eleven or did they. They're. Pro Is updated in twenty twenty it was okay. Both of the yeah. Okay. Okay. But we need five. We don't need the five G. coming the a fourteen XS coming and rumor has many led is coming. So I think if they wanted if they didn't care about many led, we'd have already if they do care about many led maybe it gets pushed early next year but it's like an awkward gap more than I think anything deleterious and they're probably still happy if you buy either one. She Patently Apple, had a story. About, many led sing apple, and this actually comes from Mingji quo. apple has. Chosen a second supplier for mini led's. Which quo said grow says Oh that means twenty twenty one in the ipad in the MAC book. I hope it's better technology than I'll let. Well, it's potentially such a better technical. Is it really you really like I mean. Oh. Let is a fantastic technology that has so many problems like you have to mitigate against burn in an off axis color shifting and and the blue sub pixel burns out faster than the other sub pixels. So you get this tile arrangement and it's just this long list of things that every manufacturer has to always keep in mind and many led should let us get very close because it uses local dimming zones very close to as much black, very, very bright highlight. So you'll get as much dynamic range, not maybe as much as all ED, but you'll have a lot of the same benefits without any like any of those mitigations, right? Yeah. The challenge is going to be that. Usually when we talk about how? Usually, usually when we talk about how good it's display as we talk about how well it displays photos, I'll displays video, but really the the the the apex feature of a display on a tablet is how does establish the user interface? How well does it convey tax? How easy is it to read over a long period of time? So it really has to be a balance between those two things has to look in the demo, but it also has to look good after three hours of answering emails. Yeah. Good. So, if this rumor is true and against rumor Sanon optoelectronics. Will be shipping many led dies for Apple Ipad and Mac book from twenty. Twenty. One. Supplying twenty to thirty percent of their products next year and almost half or more than half even by two thousand twenty. Two and that's going to bring the price down. Currently the total cost of mini, La date display chips. would. Be Seventy Five, eighty, five dollars. But adding the second supplier will reduce the cost down to forty five dollars. And you know I mean. Does that mean that you're GonNa have to wait even longer to get a new. Are Mac pro because you're gonNA, wait wait for the mini. That's a good question. Is it that much better than I should wait? It. Seems pretty good arguments. They're doing CDs though on the on the companies doing it, but the last I heard Apple's not happy with the continuous brightness levels screens. They figured out how to really well on phones really well hold. Your bad a different process to. I have to say I had an older. Old Lenovo Lenovo Pad. And you want. Well Yeah. That's why I got it. Actually. Don't have to worry about power confirming conceal be plugged in your whole time. So that might be the perfect screen to do something like that on. Can I buy old monitor desktop monitoring to Zane by them? You can buy them from like pro from relatively inexpensive all the way up to those. The ones that Sony makes for Color Profile, management movie theaters like forty, two, thousand dollars. Seen those. Preference. Yeah. So these are actually Samsung makes a forty nine inch oleg that's Q. Lead never mind. That's one of that's L. E. D. I. Don't know I. Don't see any. These I searched for lead and I got a bunch of led's let's see. Oh. Ed Monitors in twenty twenty, the current market status. Acer has something called the Predator. view sonic. Third Marquis towards gaming's. Yeah. Yeah. That's January. Well, those are the people who pay for them. True those those are the ones who are paying who are paying for. Performance enhancements that allow them to kill fake people much faster just found my new monitor. A, fifty, five inch. Oleg. Gaming Monitor from Dell it's only three, thousand, eight, hundred, seventy, seven dollars. That's all fifty five inches. I can watch TV on that thing. Bigger. Than my TV. That's that's gigantic. Let's Talk About I. O. S. An IPAD OS fourteen. Were developers. I saw a lot of people say, Oh, developers are shocked shocked to that was pushing it out a day after the event. Did that really take people off guard? It's it's. The tech bloggers off guard. A lot of developed I spoken to is that they kind of went apple gets so predictable and here's what happens. Here is what has happened every single almost every single time before they. Released to the public, they kind of plan on it and they put all of their their time budgeting into it. So a lot of people were really really shocked that okay. Well, we didn't have time to really do the final spate of tests on our APP that were supposed to be doing but good luck everybody Yikes I was kind of thinking. That was going to happen because they had the Beta seven Beta eight in in rapid succession that always feels to me like they usually say it's at the event like Detroit like an past is not always predicate but usually at the event, someone says going into GM today and they'll be released next week because that's a day before the iphone is then. Really, but twenty, twenty Leo, it's it makes every Devlin emmerick movie looked like they undershot. Rainbow. Also think about this. Okay. You know how there was the original rumors that they were actually going to release the the the Apple Watch. Just with the press release the previous week, right. So timeline, wise that lines up with the launch of Watch Os and irs and everything because it's almost like they didn't push outs the the software early as much as they released the hardware a week later than than they were originally planned to cause that aligns more with it having been launched on I. Don't know was that the the fifteenth or something like that I don't even remember anymore what the original at rumor was that it was calm. We come up with think about that. So maybe Maybe, they postponed the hardware. Interesting. Big. Developers well, and a lot of developers quickly leapt into action. James Thomson mealy got a peak CALC. which it out or dice actually love him so much Thais. We did on Iowa today earlier. Today we did a bunch of widgets there quite a few which is now third party widgets are out and I. Think there's some very nice ones. If you want a, you know cover review of the. Lit, custom home screens well can everywhere can you say how? How joyful, which have made social media because every single person who's done? That's that's the reason why the they're they're they're they're impatient to download and install Iowa's fourteen because they wanNA. Play with widgets Oh Look I. Put my kids photo here and now I've got this widget there. It's like, Oh, I'm so happy to see everybody. So happy like usually I it's it's rare that I can't remember the last time apple has released a feature that made so many people so joyful at the same time. This is a tick? Tock. what do you call them influence her who is now up to almost a million followers catalogs. On flick creative who is really racking up the views nine point one million views on how to make your. IOS. Fourteen home screen. AESTHETIC AF. Not Nine million views on Tiktok and that's half the president shut it down. So just heat the wizards. Yeah. Actually, this is this is widget Smith which we showed and I thank her because she taught me how to use widgets Smith to make my home screen aesthetic a AF. Those teams developers and always have your James. Thomson's Your David David Smith Played Six APPs the day the announced IOS fourteen active. Yeah. So that's good I mean and I have to say I'm liking these widgets these are not As capable as ANDROID widgets, they're not really live exactly. You can't enter text in them or anything like that. But I apple watch which meant conserve battery life at all rights. But yeah, and I also think that they're covering most of what people even in the android world us is four I. Think they took they took the best meat off the bone and there there it would be great if we could set up pay individual pages with active widgets there when I travel. Traveling I. would. I would almost rebuild my phone to turn it into like I can get it. Any piece of information that I need were any any not taking any reference like one or two swipes but mostly what I'm using it for us I wanna see what what's the weather going to be like I want a shortcut to to a certain APP or a certain feature that let's be tunnel all the way down into the feature that I want I'm so I'm so pleased when the first which is that I? Installed as a matter of fact, was the Google it on my iphone because it's a and unfortunately now it is easier i. feel as though it's easier to access Google Lens, which is one of my favorite google features of all time. It's faster to access it on my iphone that it is on my android phone because it's it's built into. Yeah. It's built into the US all I have to activate the assistance that's one swipe, and that for remember like how to with Lens, it's like I minister last. Actually. The first time I used I was in an antique shop over the weekend, and there is this beautifully like bronze blonde bronze plaque with some sort of saying on it, and I believe German and it was very, very decorative but APP given its age I absolutely wanted to make sure I knew that phrase said in English before I even considered buying it and I actually had both phones by pocket actually. Going directly to apple because to the iphone because that's the one that I remember that Oh if I just had this button able translate, it's going to translate German for me immediately. The one thing that's amazing to me like it feels like the IOS team at Google the IPHONE team. Is Low loves the IPHONE slightly more than the ANDROID team loves the Pixel but all of them hate the IPAD it just thank. Google for like, they will make all these features immediately available for the IPHONE, but you want side-by-side APP on the IPAD you're waiting five years. I think I think that inside they have an institutional problem with tablets size any. event. Even their even their own damn I'm so strong. When I, when I got a my first chromebook that I was going to be using an anger I was so surprised that the right answer is not gonna be. Oh well, obviously, I'm going to download the android Google Docs APP and that's can be a full. No, it's actually doesn't work nearly as well as the web based Google Docs. So this is this is don't feel as though apple doesn't like ipads they just are distrustful of any square acreage beyond I. Don't know like eight square inches they they feel as though there be dragons on the old-timey sears do not do not cross this Pixel dimension. I have to say I was very shocked. At. How I phone users have jumped on widgets. I. Would have thought that would be a feature that they would just go. No, I like my grid of icons. Thank you very much you. It's newly oh but there's a lot of new things. People don't jump on I mean maybe we'll see if it has longevity people jumped on me. Day. Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's new and it's annoying and you can make your screen looks like it's work and especially now because there's no theme kit, still rumors of theme kit for a few years but we've never actually seen it. So people are using this as a de facto way to customize our homes, Greens which some people have been wanting to do for a long time. It it's a pain in the butt. So we'll they keep doing it. Who knows I'm just I'm hoping that apple actually releases a proper theme cat and there's a quote unquote bug that prevents you from setting comic saucer or marker felt as your default but other than that let's you do you. Yeah. Well, actually some of these widget maker. which it's do have marker felt fonts. So sorry. Bad News I don't think. Call. Call David and just like have words with him is. Maker who who did this would yeah. We just Smith is underscored David Smith who did like sleep plus plus and Oh, a ton of other like so many if eight apps a year. Okay. interesting. Okay. He does power the. Guy So he's been working on it for a long time I don't know. I don't know. Well, that's still work probably not. Good. Oh. That's good. Okay. So this is not I. I I thought Oh this is some Janke you know. APP that will not be very good. But in fact, it's quite powerful. And the amazing yeah, I. Think I hope Apple I'm sure apple is observing and listening to every time the way that the way that IOS users managed to morph and twist a basic feature into doing something unexpected wonderful like everything that apple everything that users did to exploit the ability to put pictures and put animations underneath the watch face like some of these are just heroically done. They really look like A. Brand new watch faces or brand new like data portals almost and everything that people are doing to make widgets do the things that they wanNA. Do you got that? That's that's really good marketing research that just shows you that look people are willing to suffer that bad and use Use This really really Janke SORTA hacked to get an approximation of this feature maybe we ought to give them this feature for real yeah. Well. It's something that's been android for years but now that it's an apple pm are jumping up and down saying. And Show and shame on speaking social media. Shame on all the all the android blue oak welcome to. Two thousand. Eight. Why can't you be happy for people who are happy What, what is it i? I just borrow Stephen Hack it's two thousand, seven era Mac and just walked dashboard and go look. Dashboard. Dashboard. Oh God giving give a scrapbook widget. Give me like an old school system six point zero to scrap book which I will switch back iphone. So A. Calculator I, I would take all the desktop early macaroni Lisa wages, right. I suppose developers do that right there. They could do that. There's not. Yeah. Can't make alive calculator with the widget capabilities you can't. But I forget the name Lori will know it because it's it's mainly and bridge Maxwell's company, but they put a whiteboard which it and. Blanking, on the name Ron. Unholy. that. Is for Iowa's she used to work at Apple. Yeah. She used to work on the design. Johnny is team and he was a was it apple to I forget where he is. Now he's an ACE coder and INCO. They crammed. In two seconds, I just got a launch I'm just googling A. Whiteboard widgets. Scribbled together scribble it's using scribble though that's I was thinking. It's a real. It's an APP, but does it ever wish it? They they just updated it without right? Yeah. That's so okay. So I didn't understand that Oh I. Remember this we played with this. Yes. He played with us in Iowa today. Yes. This is so cool. So this has a widget. Man Yeah Wow. Yeah this lets you ca- do collaborative scribbling. Yeah Yeah May Lico and Bridgier Maxwell. Yeah. We were actually in the scribble when one of them came in and said, hi, I think it was mainly because it was very good drawing. if if they, if they kinda surprised everybody with Iowa's fourteen, you think it's possible that they'll surprise everybody with big Sur. Well the the eighth Beta just came out so. I'm thinking we're GonNa see that pretty soon. Yeah, we might see it next week. Oh dear. To you yet, it feels not quite cooked to it. I'm I'm especially having problems with Safari. So I I. Sure hope that they're doing some some stuff because the things that I'm having problems with safari have to work, and so it's a real issue for me and it's and it's a safari issue. So. This is safari. which is the first part of Big Sur which actually is for everybody now safari fourteen. So yes. It's all back end stuff with our context and it's like job and not anything that anybody else. Yeah Yeah. I actually the roots we'll have an event for the apples. No please you can't. Remember. And then not finish it now, I probably the is that the event for the Apple? Silicon. Mac could be late October maybe even early November and if they if they do what they did here and then say, Oh, and the soffer is coming today at that event I will be happy for the extra time they took. Yes. That's the question. Do they released big Sur before the Apple Silicon Bax. They. Could and and it would not make a single difference that's never really been like an issue for for Mac, is to have. You know I less an iphone always kind of released at the same time that just what they've always done but big Sur has always come out before or during or after an an AMAC launch. So that won't even matter. I. Think like Rene said it'd be nice because it would feel like it's more ready for the public. but I wouldn't be surprised if it came out next week and we have no word of a silicon Mac at all shipping out of the blue. I hope we go because I started a hands on Max series. It doesn't start until a couple of weeks from now on up the road to big Sur and you know what you should do to prepare for it and upgrading and I started by talking about fourteen fourteen, which you can get now and has some very nice of privacy features and has a it tells you you know what PLUG INS are running on websites with privacy invasions are on websites. It's really Nice I. Think they've been very nice job with safari fourteen customizable Blank you know homepage lot of Nice features, backgrounds, and so forth and I guess big time improve performance the privacy report. That's what I was trying to remember. You can click a Lincoln show you all the cross site trackers that are being blocked and has something called intelligent tracking prevention. The Tab bar finally shows Advocaat's and a thumbnail when you hover over it, that's something other browsers have had for some time but okay. And it and most importantly finally removes support for Flash, is that the prompting using adobe flash your back end? RB paid to. Punch monkeys. At the end of the line for Adobe. Flash Lulia. anybody having problems besides Laurie with her back in. Sorry lorry. came out around Having problems with safari fourteen any reason to to hold off on upgrading otherwise aside from that? That's the first time I've heard anybody. Any. Problems, I think it's pretty that's seems fine. By my uses pretty milquetoast but I've had no problems with whoever I'm although I should point out that using it like three or four hours a week like sessions in which I'm forcing myself to use this this. Sort of yeah. Yeah. What do you use it at fault and he just had a curiosity What hardware? Browser. Browser my my default when testing is safari because I have to testify as well. The my usual default is still chrome only because I really like the. I'm kind of addicted to I'm kind of. I'm kind of addicted to the book marking as such a critical part of my workflow of like three or four or five different projects like every time I'm I'm flagging something that maybe i WanNa, talk about it NPR and Friday every time I wanNA, talk about it on this show on a podcast anytime I want to write it someplace else. It's really important that I separate the. I don't have time to investigate this right now, Brian something to follow up on and I used to use a third party. APP for that. But then Microsoft bought it and decided to turn something that it wasn't a loved. Wunderlist because the reason why I think he I recommend it on this show was that it just tries to be a list. It says we'll let you to. Lists of things we will let you name those lists. We will sink those lists between platforms. We'll make it very easy to bookmark URL's analyst and then Microsoft said, and now as part of your personal productivity, you can attach it's like Oh God don't don't mess me up and every, and so I, the only real attachment to chrome is that I found out that it's just really Really, simpler for me to just use a built in book marking tool make make sure things are organized in folders, sings all across all of my devices because I'm using chrome pretty much. I'll everywhere if I could find something third party at that worked as well I very well might switch back to safari because on the Mac there's just there's nothing that performs as well. Yeah. I use Fire Fox just because I'm it's cross platform. If Safari you I, mean that's the problem is I use a variety of devices safaris only on apple devices. So but Fire Fox has a lot of the PRI- before Apple. Put it in. Safari privacy protections that safaris just added. So Again. Though on I think everybody agrees on Apple is in terms of battery use and see. And the weird thing is on my windows ten machine I don't have nearly the problems with chrome as I do on on. Max. Terrible I can. I can really see Mac suffering the longer I'm using chrome the will of with with windows and tabs open on my Lenovo my Nova Carbon X, one which is five years old at this point. It seems as though I can use that machine exactly the same way and chromos just upbringing it to it's knees I just don't know love you try. Mac. I've I've tried I haven't tried it on manual. Yeah. No I haven't. I have tried it a little bit on on the windows machine I just can't think of a compelling reason to install edge on on on on my Mac I. Don't know what the I don't know what problem I would be solving. It's kind of layer wait chrome. Yes. True. But if I if I'm looking for something lighter weight I've got safari right so that's the for me. That's the solution to the problem on the MAC although it would be cross platform. Of course Rene. What do you use for default browser I use I use safari but I do have sort of a jail for Google APPs in chrome. Goal. That's. Really want those features and there is some sites of like this battle between Apple for privacy and battery life and Google for Progressive Web. APPS and more native functionality and people are just coating for chrome they way they use to code for free. So I feel like I'll use safari as a default if it doesn't work but says, his brow is not supported or something's broken. Alvin carefully gingerly go over to chrome. And do their. One. Of the things I still dislike is that we're we're collapsing down and I would never have guessed web kit would win the browser wars back when it was cage t mellon conqueror I bet any amount of money that. E. Tried it would own the web browser world one day but now we have almost nothing else I mean fire foxes keeping Gecko going a bit but everything else is using web kit derived to blink to chromium. Now, right? I started using duck duck go, which is now out on I o S. because privacy focused browser on IOS and it's one of the few browsers you can make your default. And you know web kit. Safari with a few extra features, which is great. You get the best of both worlds mostly accounting click if you use a few other default browser, it's mostly for account with that's why he's Fire Fox because it's across all my platforms Laurie I take it you're using safari since you have to use it with your back end. Yeah. Sort of similar to Rene not even for my Google APPs as much as just Google meet. doesn't work very well in Safari. So switch over to chrome so that I don't crash. Well him in the meeting. That's literally the only time I use chrome is to Have Google me I'm. For the right. You got to say That that shows how weird and how badly managed the web is that I do have three on. On my Mac, I have always had three browsers available on the machine. I also have two or three and chromos might default I've got I've also got the one I've also got fire Fox as one that has no plug ins no nothing in it. So that's the one that like runs really really fast. But then of course, I also always have the tour browser because anytime that I'm I'm. Watching TV and it's one of those youtube channels in which like, Hey, tuck this this eighteen, million dollar supercar that we bought it a salvage oxygen for eighty dollars and we're gonNA bring it back to sometimes you want to Google well, how much does this car usually caused without marketers and he's thinking about buying a supercar let's change all of this adds to the home loans and and stuff like that. The other. ISSUE, I had was safari. They changed how extensions work for good reasons for security reasons. But my preferred Adblocker, you block origin no longer is available on safari and I you know I feel like that. The content blockers they have I use wiper. But I feel like they're not quite as good as they used to be the extension. Goes to re, but that doesn't block ads just blocks trackers. Actually doesn't even block. Box. Does okay. Okay. I I stopped I stopped using grocery when it got way too annoying. It's like I. Know There's there's a deep dig Donald finest saying something please don't tell me about extended services. No, please don't tell me about a survey you want doesn't Only on chrome. Safari this is not powerful enough to do that. I'll have to try goes to yeah you're right blocks, ads, stops, tracking speeds, ZIP, websites, plug-ins now that's part of big Sur so this is like They just have to put them. Basically, they're gonNA use the same style as fire Fox and chrome soon they are. Okay. Yeah. So WAS THAT A. Dead End or a bad. Fork in the road that they took because they I know they really eliminated the. Ultimately failed because they couldn't get support, which is like the classic properly when you do something different, that's one of the reasons I don't use safaris, the limited number of extensions available you know. That's an issue. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Well, speaking support that's that's going to be at some point apple apple's doing really really good work on behalf of the user to maintain mentioned privacy and also awareness of what what websites during the background they could however at some point, cross a line where The the money pipeline is starting to get pinched off for a lot of these websites and they say, well, guess what using Safari. We will not let you use safari unless you turn off these features or switch to chrome or something else. So it's there's there I know there have been negotiations behind the scenes saying that I know that there must be a happy medium between allowing us to have our revenue pipeline while also allowing a removing the most the most egregious abuses but that might be a fight that's coming in the next year or two. Let's take a little break and then we can talk about the Emmys the and the air pods studios, you one chip and a variety of other. Things it's MAC break weekly Array Richie Andy and NOCCO Laurie Giller show today brought to you by it pro TV. Geek to be listening to our shows on twit you probably interested in it. This is a great career. Let me tell you even You know if you've got a current career, maybe you're thinking I would like to do this all the time you. You can eat though to get your first job in information technology whether it's fixing computers, securing networks doing pen testing. You know anything you're doing you need to show the perspective employer. You've got the skills, and for the most part, this is kind of fairly orderly in it because there are certain certifications you can get and you get these certifications by studying taking the tests and then they certify yeah they've got the skills. There's the competition certifications like a plus security plus network plus. The. EC Council Certified Ethical Hacker Certification of course, Microsoft Cisco and others have certifications to get a job without experience the search of the key. But how do you get the search? You go to it pro TV. Tim and Don. The founders of it pro actually started doing training and classrooms for it for taking those certification exams. But they've really gone well beyond it with a modern it pro TV streaming and on demand video with every possible subject under the it son.

Watching it pro TV because you're going to add new skills in Polish existing skills as a field that changes all the time. That's why we love it. y'All you the training you get it. Pro TV is less expensive and higher quality in my opinion than the technical schools a lot less expensive. Frankly, it's not much more than going out and buying a book or two every month and their instructors are so good donnelly experts in the field but they entertain as well as inform, and there's all sorts of features you get with it pro TV that no book give you those virtual labs. So, you can try out the skills you learned you have to have windows at all you can do it on any html five browser even on a chromebook, you can configure and run a windows server windows clients. And by the way, one of the things I love about that anything goes wrong and this has happened to me many times I just closed the TAB.

We if we've done quite a few of person but now we're doing via skype resume and the good news is you can watch no matter where you are. do you watch the emmys on Sunday Leo? There's there is something that's breaking just tweeted out what introducing swift on windows new tool chain images available. downloadable from swift dot org. Yeah. Now Swift. Geeky people think of swift is being a how you program on apple but as always been open source and it's always in theory being able to even able to swift on any platform. So now they have a tool chain for windows very interesting. Yeah. I actually liked. For Windows went away. So yeah. That's interesting. downloadable swift tool chain. For Windows, you don't get x codes. Sorry. That'd be that'd be. Carbon or something. Yeah Let me. Let me take a look at this. Get downloaded It's also built for a boon to. Sent. Amazon Lennox. Too. So that's that's exciting I think switch the great language. well worth. So we're GONNA talk about the Emmys First Emmy Award for the morning show Apple TV plus had eighteen plus nominations in the primetime. emmys. I thought Billy Krupp already won an emmy, but I guess not for the Golden Globe Golden Globe. Okay. Outstanding supporting actor in a drama series. He was very good in the morning show was excellent. Key Yeah. Yeah he was. Have they said whether they're going to do a second season that I think they have to write. I'm sure they are. Special Steve Carell Jennifer instant marketplace Martin Short also nominated I would have liked to see Martin Short win. He had a very small piece in one episode, but it was good. Name but the woman who was the victim in the last couple of episodes was so good. She was really good. It was very rare. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Apple one previously a pair of daytime. emmys for ghostwriter and peanuts in space. I think Apple TV plus. You know I've kind of rethought it. I've been watching Ted Lasso. Thanks to you actually I'm all caught up I I watched an episode last night. They said, okay that's all I said wait a minute. You can't stop coke. There's more. I did I got into it because it's very sweet. It's it's a good antidote for anything else you're watching nobody gets shot. He's eaten just so positive to very up. Yeah. I want all of my friends to be Ted Lasso I want everyone I work with everyone I talk to be sweet. Yeah Ted last. So I, feel like they stumbled a little bit with some of the early you know marquee programs morning show wasn't that great. See kind of flopped waiting for foundation. I'm so nervous a lot of pressure. There's a lot of pressure foundation. We're getting foundation and Dune Leo and I'm nerve erect over both of them. I'm worried about Dune. Only because it looks like an action looks like star wars they gave them to these though he said he wouldn't do it unless he got to movies because he wanted to show all the intrigue in texture in politics take more than two movies. That's a long book and that's just the first book if you do the whole series. I just need one for now I'll take one Lori and I were trading Dune sayings back and forth and it just it fills me with all the fields apple TV I was just going to say I, think in hindsight. While they maybe struggled a little bit beginning which is to be expected for a brand new enterprise they seem to they've they've acquired that Tom Hanks movie that was great. Greyhound I think they seem to kind of found their rhythm. There are a little held back because they don't want to be too edgy, right. Yeah I think so. Yeah it seems like everything. They put out it's it's not that it's not are rated. You know there's no. They definitely don't push the boundaries too hard any any director in order to see a true blood or even a sopranos frankly, and that's going to hurt them because that's what might see you sopranos. I don't know if you wouldn't. Yeah. I, mean. They they'd had it like see has a lot of cutting people's heads off in the first episode spoiler but really minor if you were going to watch to watch by now and Jennifer Aniston said more cuss words I've heard of my life there was a lot of swearing and I felt like that was just apple's attempt to say we're we're edgy. Sure we won't. Put crosses on the wall, but we're edgy. Yeah, I. think that's that's part of it. It's it's not that it's not are rated content. They're just they don't they're not. They're not being lake extra I. think it shows and they're trying to show see are we grew adults at adult party and the you're looking at it going you're trying too hard to adult party. The other thing is that remains to be seen if they're willing to make sort of choices that that allows an organization to be powerful creative organization, which means that risking losing subscribers or losing corporate corporate. In entitlements by pissing certain people off either, are they willing to put up that kind of show that? Wow, this is just a career and immensely wonderful creative idea by a power house creative team that is that has been turned down by every other studio because they know that if they if the the characters and here are going to piss off the. Chinese. They're going to get a rebuke to the Chinese government and they're also going to get really really hostile reactions from evangelical and they're going to be petitioned by this group and that group but it's too. It's too good a story not to do that, and that's not necessarily their responsibility. But that's the difference between being a real creative force and being Disney plus. Apple Daily. Prone Season Eight, they can do a redux just to bring everyone back. That long as I think the real test is going to be what happens with the Martin Scorsese deal because they have what's called a first look deal doesn't mean that they're going to buy every he does, but they have a first look at everything he does so it'll be very interesting to see. If. Some of his edgier stuff can have if you could see some of his edgier stuff. I mean. I don't know if you would apple do the Irishman I don't think so but maybe I don't know but but all the same remember that Netflix's to the Irishman and they didn't sign a scorsese to a first look deal. But that's Netflix doesn't announce what the viewership is but if that had been, I hate to invoke the name of the beast. But if I'd had been like Tiger King sorta numbers, they would a lot score up for the next to simply the problem was that the Irishman was one, hundred, seventy, five, million dollars. Paramount. Said Oh, and in fact, paramount has done the same thing with a movie called killers. Of The Flower Moon, this is another Scorsese. Which is based on the book it was in development of paramount with apparently according to ninety five Mac studio grew weary. Of the one hundred, eighty to two, hundred, million, dollar price tag. Yeah these. South Korean soap operas for that amount of money. So it's Leo DiCaprio and Robert Deniro. So you know of course it is because that's all. Right. If you think about the like. I think what apple has done and and will maybe do a short time but not forever, they're reaching out to the broadest audience to write to capture them. So that's step one right and then you into like Rosemary's baby. You know you you gotTa, you gotTa bring in as many people as possible before you start throwing the Edgier weirder. More unusual stuff. Especially, if you think about the way like HBO used to be when it was brand new bringing in their own content apple is is eons beyond what hbo was it just had more time to get where they are now. So we could really see that happen with Apple. What I've come to is let's give him some time and they're they're moving that direction and remember Scorsese makes a variety of movies. You wouldn't put the wolf of Wall Street on Apple but you might put Hugo right. No I I. would. Yeah. I think apple is not they're not the key, the Apple TV plus is not a place for family friendly stuff. It's a place for a broad audience and the will of Austria had a huge audience so to yeah, that does fit there. Don't want to offend art. No Art. Leo, that's the thing is. If they think gratuitous. They probably won't do it. Although seems very gratuitous. But if it's hard, I think that will they'll have a huge wad of flexibility. Soprano win is calling you know no one is calling C art. No but I justification it was. Ability and it's not always different. You. Can rationalize a lot of stuff when you're looking for get to high-concept you kind of lose our right yeah. Come all the concept. They just announced an order for New Ben Stiller movie with Patricia Arquette it's a half hour comedy called. High Desert. it follows our cat, a former addict who decides to make a new start to death of a reloaded mother with whom she lived in a small desert town of Yucca Valley California she decides to become a private investigator. Okay. Okay it's kind of breaking bad meets Berry I. Don't know what it's going to be but We were joking they could do a Seinfeld reunion, but then we thought maybe they don't have enough money. Though one has enough money for Seinfeld. Also, we're we're hoping we're hoping that can do better than just simply saying how how old, how old is our target market that that that that's paying the bills here fifty three. Okay. What TV shows that they enjoy when they were right are are any of them still alive? Great. For. Dancing on the line. For me I mean, we'll. We're we're talking about Scorsese. It's like Wolf Wall, Street. Yes. By my questions are more about if we're ever talked about score says, he like what streaming services not is not going to blink but saying, yes, let's do let. Let's let's show last temptation of Christ or Yeah that's that's. But there's also age of innocence. I mean. There's a lot of Scorsese films that are beautiful you have. Yeah. Yeah that belong on and and the King of comedy King. So maybe that was a little dark but maybe Maybe, he's at Disney Disney solve this by having vista having a separate. The they deadpool that nobody knows what to do. Yeah. ooh. I hope I. Can get a little more edgy and I think you nailed it when you used the word art rene because that apple can justify because they're all about the arts right and they can say low turn their. Oh, we're going to make films that are great art and sometimes they'll might be a little challenging or offensive but these are these are not. Pandering to your violent instincts or your sexual instincts but they are art I have to be careful because they have a fiduciary they're not going to Charlie Hebdo like I. Don't think in any stretch of the imagination you're GonNa have to find some. Boutique Hollywood house to do that. So they are going to have constraints on how far who they're willing to offend but I think within those constraints just. Just, for being a corporation, they'll still finding excuses to do interesting things. I intend to Disney plus that it's so I I I subscribe to it for about a month just to just so I can watch the mental orient and then the the Hamilton movie and that but I watched everything that I could find on that and was due to me. It was just so bland there is a lot. There was a ton of stuff that I could watch because okay. This sounds kind of interesting. Sure. There was nothing on there that was like Oh, my God I can't believe they got this movie. Feared Apple. Would be. I'm in one hundred percent disagreement with y'all I, watch Disney plus all the time. But because it's like nostalgia for the movies that I watch is a kid like the apple dumpling gang things like that. So for me, it's fantastic escape from which mountain. Return which mountain and then the remake of escape from Richmond. Yeah. Why would you go back? You, escape. Back. And I and I know I'm weird here. But this is this is why like an in a world in which there there's no longer just netflix's where there are so many streaming services. It's like can I? Can I when I took a look at this library and I made a list of well, here's the stuff that I kinda WanNa Watch and a lot of them were again like a Angela Lansbury in bed knobs. and Prince, and Broomsticks, but then, but then I'd look okay here's how much the Disney plus it's GonNa cost. Let's go onto ebay and see how much would cost to buy it on BLU ray secondhand and it's usually like five or six bucks. Some of these are even like inventory titles necessarily like the Marquee Disney stuff but it's just this cheap DVD's you get for like five dollars brand new and it just Ta-. I found myself making the same deal with myself that I made when I decided to stop subscribing to other than basic cable. It was like, okay. You're gonNA miss stuff that's on TV and you'RE GONNA. Miss some of these series that you really like you're gonNA, Miss. Project runway which you really really love. Okay. Well, you have you have permission to you do the math and how much is a cost to purchase this a season pass on itunes or on the play store? How much does it cost to purchase this movie and even If you buy digitally as download and you realize, Oh, I've still coming out way ahead over the cost of of the service for an entire year. It's not whereas I'm maintaining I I've maintained my Netflix subscription and I'm actually going to like keep doing Hbo Max Because of all the all the different times where I've been surfing all the sounds like a really great documentary. I really got to see this and I kind of like want to have the channel surfing experience where okay I did not intend to be up until two am. This entire series about about the golden state killer but I cannot watch the rest of this. It's good. Yeah. Laura you said that your spatial sound in your air pods pro really is spatial. Oh. Yes and so funny that we keep talking about see I wanted to test it out and I just threw on whatever apple TV, plus move TV. Show is on 'cause I just assumed if anything's going to have it, it's going to be something on TV plus right. So I just started watching the first episode of See It's so weird. So. I had my iphone in front of my face when I turned I could actually hear it more out of this set. I can hear notable could hear up more out of this side back to the center I could hear everything centered when it turns out. Here. It was so weird. It was like blowing my mind it's coming through here, but it acts like the way when you're listening to TV. Liked through regular speakers, it was such a weird experience along that. I wonder. So I wonder how other do? You think they're doing it with the next celery. They do have a patent and it's rumored that they'll do this for the next airport studios. There's going to be a you one chip in it to do that kind of sensing of location the you one shipped I believe it's computational audio. It's in evolution of the homepage how they were your head is. Well they have. They have a sensor fusion hub. That takes all the beatings from X. from gyroscopes do have accelerometers in the air yeah. Yeah that's that's how that's how they know when they're stationary can go into low power mode. Stuck on a table or Wow that's amazing. What you can get a small package. So the air pods, a lot of people complained about the price when they first came out because it was based on the audio. But when you crack them open, there was like a tiny apple watch basically they're. Silly, the united silicon that he put inside. EARP, it's basically. We were going to We did this on IOS today and So one of our listeners are fans he says, he's a big fan is a musician named Jeff Perrin and he's made an APP He does surround sound music. That's his specialty was a graduate of Berkeley School of Music, and he does you know music that's designed to use your five. Seven one. Sound system and he created an APP for IOS called surround speaker check. And he sent us an email saying you know you might want to recommend to people want to try the spatial audio. Of course, you could sit down and. Watch star wars or see but this is another way to do it it'll show you. An image of this of the screen and I, did the five point one surround on Ios today now, we're Stereo at best most cases, most people losing a mono speakers, but we're a stereo show we offer left right and I. I gather that it's it's doing this with just left and right speakers. That's all you've got with your With your air pause, but it's not decoding five one. It's just it's just kind of doing it and Laurie. You said when you were listening to us today, it actually do have a surround sound fuel. Yeah. It's real. I'm not sure the technology that this person uses in their audio, but it sounded like it was coming from different. Dobie adobe decoding in an IPAD iphone. I'm sure you don't I was on my back. On my Mac. So it's it's somehow it's whatever's. Produce like coming out of. That sound is somehow matching up with what's in my ears. It's it's I don't know the technology how that possibly works, but it really does have surround sound feel to it. It's a free. APP. Anybody can download for IOS or IPAD OS surround. Speaker check if you WANNA test out the spatial. Sound. Yes. So it's like it's like it's a computational. Because you only have two years, so it would have to kind of. Do a computational early, but I would have. Information, it was getting from a five one soundtrack but apparently leaving, we're told the most if it has it like if it's available habit if it doesn't, it uses apple's own spatial audio processing and that just takes in the audio analyzes it and tries to determine where he should be positioned and places it. You know like a sound stage around you in that position, which is helical. Yeah. This is this is our friend Merlin Man's tweet you WanNa test runs spatial audio and air pods pro go to Disney plus pop in the original star wars and turn it way up. Now I really want to try I gave Lisa my airport pro-. well, I'll have to get off the borrow it and the trial on the one hand. Having audio. Well, you're you know just sitting there watching the screen like seem like it's coming from behind in moving forward. That is cool. But seriously when you turn your head left to right even though you've got headphones in your ear and the audio actually positions itself in front of you, you really amazed maps. Cool Yeah. Spatial audio is the biggest the biggest Bein clucking alchemy that I've ever experienced. No kidding. I don't track pads. Talking to yeah. Yeah. All your senses are alive. It just tells you all your senses have always been allies appropriate active, and it's we make a bunch of assumptions and they can. They can play what they can totally play us with just how our brains. I mean I don't doubt that the two speakers are sufficient to to a three, hundred sixty degrees sound stage I just thought that you had to have some data going into those that told it where to mix stuff but I guess you're right rene the apples also saying, well, I'm only getting Stereo data but I'm Gonna I'm GonNa make it surround anywhere. They remember they machine learned they they train it off tons and tons of music and figuring out where different sound club coming from a front and dialogue versus atmosphere and all that kind of stuff. Very nice. All right time to get to our picks of the week next on Mac break weekly. Our show today brought you by a brand new podcast I thought you might be interested in wild wild tech even the name kind of tells you. Fun It's going to be you know we talk about this. All the time technology shapes culture and and vice versa shows like star trek influenced a whole generation of scientists, thinkers innovators there. Now, you know doing things at NASA and SPACEX, they saw I on TV. That's what the wild wild tech talks about the wild. Wild. Tech. podcast discusses the most the most infamous stories about tech and how it's shaping our culture. You'll hear interviews on topics like how iphones are giving away the entire plot of movies.

Check out the wild wild tech trailer today on Apple podcasts spotify in all the places you get your podcast, wild wild tech you can listen now and don't forget to subscribe. I think. Let me think. Do I want to spend money today. Let me start with Laura Gill. You're not gonNA spend money to. Almost positive. Oh. Blah. So the man delorean which everybody knows about of course there is A. Special. Full Eight. LP box set of the season. One soundtracks only. LP ON VINYL. Individual Lt is one of the episodes. So episode one as the soundtrack from episode one, it has it looks like it has a total of nine songs on it. There's four on the first sight and two on the second side and So. They're they're called chapter one chapter two chapter. So it's It goes all the way up to the eighth the eighth the. episode. And they they have great artwork. It comes in a gorgeous box. It's really expensive. Box But if you're playing final hours, fans are GONNA buy it I bought it the second it went on sale. So it's it's worth it for people who really love. And this is the first time. This soundtrack is come out the star wars movies. they were all the The Not prequels the ones that have just come out recently they all got a vinyl release and then this, this is the first time that the man delorean is out on vinyl. So it's it's pretty awesome to actually have that. So this elite added to my collection of all the other Star Wars Vinyl that I have produced in production in conjunction with Walt. Disney records. You know I just saw a story that. For the first time since something like nineteen eighty. Vinyl records outsold sees this year. Yeah. What? Well, which really that's more a testament to how many how few people are buying CD's. Technology Leo where they said that it's like even a CD. Digital music because it's not just dots, it's not just grooves, but it's the non binary part from going to the top to the bottom of that groove and it reproduces a wider range than digital stuff doesn't just blew my mind. It's this is why I master from CDs it's like. Completely unimpressed completely unlocked. It is the purest sound. I occasionally, spend twenty thirty bucks at HD tracks for you know these porno player quality. Of of on compressed files. But yeah, this is that to the fact that I can buy a dozen CDs for Bucky Ebay and it's I. Think I like that. But yeah. It's it's no surprise because people are actually interested in seeking out LP's whereas people aren't necessarily really don't really have a need to get CD's although I. I saw the I saw the master chart and I was amused at least pleased to see the CDs are still outselling ringtones. Actually, still a yellow spike. Wow. So. How many of you have turntables, you must have a turntable, Laurie right? I have I have many turn to. Employ microphone. Yeah. Do you. How does that you have several stereos? You know it's like somebody gave you a turntable for your birthday at some point and you didn't get rid of it. See still have it. So you put it in the living room, but you actually have the good stereo that regularly and that's in the you know the family room, but then you have this. Player that you just need to replace the needle because you actually liked that one better than the one that's in the living room. So once you replace that needle, then that one's going to be switched out. So you know when you're when you listen to vinyl, it's like getting getting you know stereos like you don't have one stereo in your life, right? You've got small stereos and big stereos. You've got your Living Room Stereo and your car stereo I don't have a car rhetoric player they do exists. So, vinyl records. Okay. Okay, that's because they cost more. This is in dollars. That's why I get it. Now, final records in the first half of twenty nineteen. Twenty and nineteen, twenty twenty. this is from last year. So I have to get something more up to date but they twenty nineteen, they sold eight point six, million units sees sold eighteen point, six, million units, but vinyl records cost Helluva lot more. But I can't tell you just in the past couple of years. I've seen an increase in interest in in vinyl in from a very personal perspective I used to be able to press records all the time for my bands and you did send out the the music and they would press it two months. Later at the most, you'd had had it in your hand, and now they pushed back all the independent record makers that you know independent bands trying to make their records because they're they're trying to catch up with the popularity of these major companies. that are putting things out on vinyl again. So it it may not like it's it may be unit by unit there may be more CDs being sold, but there's absolutely an increase in vinyl sales compared to what it used to be just from my perspective of how to get a record press for six months now, and that's if I'm really lucky. Twenty. Twenty numbers they've just been handed to me and CDs or down seven. Year over year only ten point, two, million CDs in the first half of twenty twenty eight point eight, million records. So actually, it's just a matter of time before records also outsell CDs in unit sales. Half of the best selling vinyl albums are released before two thousand. So there's style je thing but half of them weren't billy eyelash the best selling vinyl albums include, billy. Irish. Harry styles. Queen's greatest hits and the Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack you really should buy that on cassette if you're going to be. Full you know to the to the theory. So that's only seven percent of all music revenue comes from physical sales. So it really is more of a reflection of how digital is taken off. I feel like I. Should Buy turntable now. Just. Do It put put on Nice old record and just kicked back I have a nice I remember talking. Bird, girl. I know I. Don't know what? You were saying good care of your records. Get. Washer and all that stuff. I did too much scratching in my day Andy Nocco your pick of the week is also music I have another musical Bun I was bummed out at piece of news came on Friday and I decided I was going to take a few days off from social media and just find peace within myself. that. When I saw your tweet or something. Yeah. Yeah. Because I was. I knew I knew that as soon as that news dropped that there's GonNa, be a lot of yelling and screaming and mean people and being news outside I. Don't have any out of that especially because I'm how bad the news made me on Friday that Burgers us. and so but fortunately I had I had a really nice quiver in my arsenal The Metropolitan Opera has been in in lieu of live performances have been doing a series called met stars live in concert. They've been arranging these concerts streamed live and hd over the Internet from with thirty, some of their top top talent works. And some of those beautiful locations and this one that that premiered last week was a world beater was exactly what I needed Their Joyce did not put together up an hour and a half long program and not only she one of my favorite Sopranos. But also when she puts together a program of music, it really is like going to church like in a really good positive. Way, where is a an emotional and spiritual process because she puts the these these these programs together where at first I, we're going to acknowledge that there is darkness in the world we're going to be singing songs of war and frustration and emotion, and then we're going to transition, and by the end we're GONNA be talking working, be singing about joy or singing about peace of light, and that's She had another program a few years ago in war and peace that was had a similar sort of flow to it, and it was also similar similarly therapeutic. It's something that I have on my server and occasionally again when the world is kind of bummed me out and have to remind myself that the world needs people who are aware of all the darkness in the world and yet continuing to create and seek light this this. Sort of stuff that does it I talk about opera lot and a lot of people are saying, Hey, what's a good entry entry point for someone who is not really familiar with this would be a wonderful starting point because you don't have to sit through an entire opera with recipes and so I go. But I'm not going to find my horse your horses right here. You don't have to sit through you have to follow a storyline. Beautifully, shot impeccably song and their captions you can follow what's going on and and it will at least show you about the beauty of this stuff. All all I can say is that one of the things I love about opera at its best and Joyce out premesh anytime is that when she sings these really emotionally compelling pieces of music. I'm sitting in my living room I'm watching this on my TV. I know that I've paid twenty dollars to taxes to the stream for the next two weeks. And I know this is like, Joyce, tomato, but I'm like I feel as though I should I feel as though this is a really personal stressful time for her she's going through so I really feel I should leave i. feel like I'm intruding on this really heavy time that she's having but no, she's a character who singing the song and it's just gorgeous. Gorgeous stuff like I said, it's actually streamed live in Spain. I'm sorry Germany two weeks ago but the Stream is still up and it doesn't go away until this Friday So twenty bucks gets you access to it as many times as you want to want to listen to it and whether you're. Through, to September twenty fifth, which is Friday and that's up until we have to say eleven fifty, nine pm. So you know that you're getting adults of until twelve o one am Saturday morning whether you need some peace and some spiritual harmony or whether you just want to beautiful music or whether you want to see how come how come antiquites nurturing out over opera and about his favorite performers this is going to be a good twenty bucks to spend. Now, what am I getting? Is it a because I see that runs out on the twenty fifth is. It's IT'S A it's a stream that It's that streams through any web browser I saw as soon as as soon as you've paid, all you gotta do is to punch in whatever email address used as your email contact when you bought the ticket and you can just stream it right from the site I had no problems chrome casting it an airplane from from my laptop I did I've s this weekend I did decide that I'm going. To have to capture the audio for this because I think I'm going to need to I don't know if this is going to ever be released commercially, and if it isn't, I really want to contribute back. This is this is why I donated the thirty dollars to the met to their to their actual performers fund because that. Okay it's okay. If I capture the audio input, my library if I take whatever would cost for BLU ray and. Give it to a fund that is supporting their performers while they are not being paid since March so. But yes you watch it through any browser phone you can stream it you can you can chrome cast it. Works Great. You can't download it but you can. Download I especially enjoy it. The chief finishes the concert. With Jerry Lewis Classic, you'll never walk alone. Right. Hands. Better than Jerry I think much much better than Jerry and and there's also a couple of excerpts from like a couple of her met performances that are glad. Nice. Again, this is why oh I just play throwing my wallet at the screen, but it only keeps making scratches and the plastic cover of it. None of the money is going to the met again this this is why the arts is such an important thing to support whether whatever it is that you really really like your local performers, your local musician, look musicians, your local independent music venues. They absolutely need your support and part of what they give you in return are moments like this that when you've had. When you've had bad news like, okay as bad as the situation I think is in America, things are going to get a lot more acrimonious and a lot more opportunities for jerks to prove exactly what a bunch of ever critical jerks they are and you realize that I'm volunteering to be thinking about jerks hypocritical jerks right now, I need to get this I need to take some time to again find some peace within myself your favorite music whether it's opera whether it's rock whether it's whatever it is. We'll help you find that peace and this is something that we're all very, very grateful and we're hoping we can keep intact when we're able to attend live performances again. That's a good pick. I think I'll download or by that and then watch it tonight. I have a show that I will be watching the minute they start producing them. And that's Rene Ritchie's newest. Tell us about this Georgia mentioned this Sunday I'm so excited. I am to it should go live tomorrow I've just we're just doing all the final checks. So Georgia, and I used to do a few podcast together we had genentech and we did the original version of vector together but everyone just got so busy and then when I went India didn't you know I lost all the mobile nations podcasts I didn't really have time to start any new ones and she's just been going gangbusters with psychotherapy because everyone is stuck at home so it's it's just People need more help than ever, but we really wanted to sort of bring the podcast back and we're doing it a little differently. It's still going to be available on you know Apple podcasts, pocket casts outcasts, every cast, we can find overcast everything. But we're also launching it with Nebula podcasts, which is the same as the NEBULA video service. Just they've added a podcast wing to it as well, and so the they'll be a video version and it'll be better produced because George and I are doing it in studio together to work outs. Yeah. I mean. We've taken all the precautions you need to take because you know neither of us have left the house I think in six months so you're probably safe. While we won't be making out during the show or anything you'll sit six feet apart. No, he's married lady lead. and. You know we're being totally say and you know I've Babysat and things like that. So we've had to, okay we're at her POD, but I'm not going yet but I literally knocked anything else and she's not done anything else. So we're safer safe can be and we're taking we're wearing masks back and forth anyway there's a whole bunch of Brouhaha over making anything these days but we're I'm scared to death of all the stuff I've becoming like a Gora phobic almost. So who are doing this down to the micro. It in your studio? Where are you going to do it? Yeah. I'm doing it in my studio and. Actually. I can throw a link Lincoln there because we have, we have the unlisted version. The show up already I'll throw it in there and one second and then give anything away here. Well, you. So the point of the show is that We still want to focus on technology but how that technology really affects people, humans and the first episode I talk about sort of the leak culture that has overtaken twitter and read it and everybody's a leaker now and everyone's putting up all this stuff and some you can trust and some you can't but she was more interested in my own background because I used to do the leaking stuff back in like two thousand twelve. Through the Lincoln Document, I used to do the leaking stuff back in two thousand twelve and it was it's a whole long story about why I stopped doing it and she basically forces me to relive it which which was. Interesting. Then we talk about you're actually sitting next to each other Oh my God here through across we're not sure yet. Yeah. You have good ventilation in that room I'm sure. Yeah and again. It's basically like just and her and Jenna. Eric Doing. We. Sorry. I was just I was GonNa say also he has its Merck Store Open I was one of the first one took. The logo. Beautiful. Yeah. It's so simple. He's wearing your hat. What is this this hat? What is going on with his head straight at the box the box come with a slip of paper saying I owe you one logo. Senate you afterwards and approval has been done. Tape it on. Where did you get the Ritzy? Here's Rene. Ritchie's had. It's the same hat. I'm actually wearing an apple hat that video that's the one from the Apple Park store, but it doesn't have a logo on. The apple logo on the side on this so subtle. Subtle. That we that's is company we don't have to market. No No. No. That that is mark saying. Only. The only really really expensive high class CAP has a logo this heart despite. Logo Friday? twit year generic now from now on, put a logo on the tag or something and math block everything everything should. Pick a tech story. She picks a human interest story, and then we just like on this one. We talk about our struggles with quitting instagram and quitting oculus because we can no longer support the company, but we love the platform and technology. So what are we supposed to do? Nice. So it s really interesting and the Nebula version is ad free and has a bonus section where we talk about like cool technology that we're using. Nice. It's called Rene Georgia and Rene. Apple. Talk The channel is Georgia and Rene which I, kind of like. Well, there's no name yet like well I. Forgot that you have to start the channel a month before yeah. Yeah. Actually brandit and then you have to get thousand subscribers or something to do only one hundred. One thing that I forgot about yeah we'll. We'll settle apple talk is the name of the show did with serenity and I pinged her and I said you might have I used it and she's like no of course not it's perfect name for show you're talking about apple And when will your first episode be? Tomorrow. Tomorrow on on Apple podcasts and and I guess all the other networks. Really. Bula very good. My pick of the week is by new turntable I. Think this is very exciting. Everybody should run out and get one of the beauty of this is not get that don't need a speaker it's comes with a little horn. that. Draw Actually Has Bluetooth playback. Jealousy does not become. Much Cooler. Throw. actually my pick is is kind of an interesting pick. You might have read about this in Fast Company. TURNS OUT THE BOSTON. Computer. Society had great people come in including Steve Jobs Bill Gates Alan. Kay and they made audio recordings of all of these. They are now available. You can listen to some of them for free on soundcloud including a Steve Jobs bit where he's talking you he had just announced the next computer in San. Francisco. And then went to the Boston Computer Society BCS shortly, thereafter to kind of do a second presentation to the club and so the quality is excellent I was very impressed they're selling it in. With an M with with a CD library binding, but it's actually a USB key with a hundred and thirty four presentations. Two hundred hours of audio from nineteen, eighty, one to nineteen, ninety one, and I immediately ran out and ordered it because just you know just to hear Alan Kay one of the best lecturers I ever heard was Alan Kay there's two different Allen Kay a pieces on here there's. A couple of Steve Jobs. It's really. I'm very excited about it. So as soon as I get this, I'll share some clips actually currently unavailable looks like they've they've sold out since I bought. So that's a bummer. Since the fast company article I I should say that this was this the tail end of that like nineteen, Eighty, eight, hundred, ninety one. That's when I was a really active member of the Boston Society before then I was a really active like attendee of these things this is such an important historical document because the presentations that allow these people were giving where. They're very free. They were very open. They showed they allowed the personalities of these people to really show through obviously, they were planned and rehearsed but they were rehearsed with the understanding that they were going that this is going to be seen by about four hundred to five hundred people who would then tell other people about what they had seen as opposed. To the streaming out to worldwide live, and we have to make sure that we time everything down to the exact second and it was really really exciting time where you get see you'll definitely want to to to zero in on the Bill Gates the ALLENDC as the Steve Jobs is, but you'll also see a lot of people who were involved in New England's Tech Center that had just as interesting. Almost interesting things to say that you probably. Forgotten about and that would have been lost to history these things not been preserved. So I'm I'm not known about this until Harry mccracken posted his fast company article. But. Yes I'm definitely I've got sixty bucks for that. Easy. Oh good. Yeah. Charles Man Thank you for recording these in high quality This is the Steve Jobs lecture from Nineteen eighty-eight at the boss. Computer Society talking about the next Have remastered all of these program. Here's UH. Research Universities such as Stanford and Carnegie just give you an idea what. Bathroom, and realize as well as state universities from California to Michigan to. Maryland. So not for their list of specifications but this is just a historic document that anybody who's interested in this kind of stuff probably would be. Good to have if if any, if they don't make more available, I'll send you. Send you some of them from the end all end all definitely ball definitely find the guy in and some money I guarantee you that ever since I had no idea these existed until Harry promoted them and I'm sure that in the coming years you're gonNA hear the at any time you see an article about a certain technologies or certain individual. It's GonNa come with a quote or two from that probably originated from these from these recordings. Yeah. Very, very exciting I've got my next two hundred hours of listening mapped out as soon as this. Comes I feel fortunate that I jumped on says I read Harry's article I said, you gotTa have that but but a number of them are on soundcloud. So you can at least hear some of the most important ones for free unsound clad. Folks we come to the end of this journey. Thank you so much for being here Andy NOCCO. When are you going to be in Boston again? I don't know although I might have a trip to Boston coming up maybe we did our H. we did our first actual like Colin Qna for tech on Friday and read really well, we're probably going to be doing more and one of the things that we discussed is that I couldn't. We came up we tried to cope with so many clues solutions that I could actually see the the call screening system, which is like how you see that. Okay. The producer has chosen the put these three in the queue here are here are roughly what they're going to ask you and it didn't work. So I basically had to. Basically fortunately, I was able to do things off the top my head. So one of the possible solutions that we exhaust all others is that okay I will buy it has met suit I will I will take the train into Boston that I will actually be in the studio for this and after I have to admit that it's at least forty percent of that is that. I Miss Boston, I'm kind of looking for a real excuse to go back just once. So I can at least explain to the squirrels where the humans have been known garden that it's not. It's not. It's not you guys. It's nothing we're we're going through some stuff right now it has nothing to do where thank you for understanding and we hope to see you again later on. Friday at one is going to be my looks to be my usual slot and as usual I'll tweet it out before right and not go on my twitter I. Didn't know you were in a member of the BCS I was a member of Bima Oh. Yeah. That time the Berkeley Macintosh users group. So and those great giant user groups really were amazing. I. Really Miss Those infected some ways I think they're the spiritual inspiration for what we do on all of our shows is we you know I will admit without getting into a long story that the reason why I've had a career in journalism is because of my activism boss Computer Society. and. If had had had gave me so not only so many opportunities to just learn and write and talk but also opportunities to write and get published and pursue a career in this. So this this is why I kind of I hope that there is something I hope that their are resources on the Internet that are sort of doing that same function and I'm glad to see I think that in the form of people who START OFF Basically with an interest in technology and wind up being able to support themselves on Youtube and with podcasts just developing a point of view and sharing with people That's one of the things that I miss about the farm system of of groups. It was a big deal is there's there's a good book in the concept of Tech user groups from the seventies eighties because from from thence the we wouldn't even have the apple computer. Had it not been for was trying impress Other engineers about what this funky little sixty five o two chip could do. I should point out that the youtube also has some videos because some of them twenty one of them were videoed as well as recorded in audio. So if you ever want to see what a presentation. add a user group might have looked like it. There's actually some very interesting ones in Iran, broad canyon, founder of Ca- Compaq computer doing his presentation John Couch presenting the Apple Two E. Mitch Kapor Introducing Lotus. One, two three Gary killed all digital research I mean it goes on and on. So those were also worth looking for you look for Boston Computer Society General Meetings There are fifteen so far up I think more coming. I. Hope. So they say there's going to be twenty one. This is part of the Computer History Museum's channel. Thank you Andy Laurie Gills thank you so much. I hope you have fun with your Apple Watch. So. Jealous. You got the red one. That's pretty. Turns out to be a lot nicer than I thought I was it was gonna be kind of too bright and it's gorgeous as an as deep deep red color to. The winding stems blue. That's pretty. I think it's black.

Guest Host: Whitney Duenas
"Hello everybody my name is Winnie doing. Yes I am the voice and face behind Barbara Bay a boutique fitness studio as well as the board hustle. Podcast it is truly an honor to be here today. Talking with all of you guys Eric and Kevin are amazing. I love each and every single one of their podcast episodes and the fact that they are bringing other people in. It's just huge and so important to me because I'm a huge advocate for supporting other businesses and community over competition. Hey there I'm Kevin Spacey and Miracles. Join us on our journey to building. One hundred million dollar company all right. Let's dive right in. So I own a boutique fitness studio where we hire independent contractors to teach our classes. I WANNA touch base more on being an employee an independent contractor which when we first opened up was one of our biggest hurdles really had a sit down with my business lawyer. Decipher the difference between being independent contractor pros and cons as well as an employee. So what I decided was the probing independent contractor. Was You have higher potential? If you want to be a fulltime fitness instructor which is very hard to come by these days. You have you're going to want to have that higher. Earning potential versus a part time instructor. Another pro was the flexibility in decision making regarding their schedule their uniform the procedures. We don't have a set. You have to wear this every class and you have to do Xyz but there is always a standard in the industry. Another pro which you get to work in a smaller workplace. It's way more intimate our class. Sizes aren't huge. Completely up to you. Akon is less financial stability. So maybe there isn't group classes to substitute all the time. There's more responsibility to pay your taxes. You're paperwork you're insurance on your own and you need to put yourself out there for marketing and networking because people are coming to your classes because their client of yours not necessarily because they're member of the studio or F fits into their schedule but ultimately they're coming for the instructor if they love the instructor that they're coming from so you really have to put yourself out there and market a network and be a loving and friendly person to everybody that comes through those doors because they might turn into your client in the end. I'm sure if you're in the fitness industry you've noticed where if you teach out one German you leave that jammed. They're more than likely going to follow you to the next Jim if you had created that personal connection with them but then there's always something that comes up a lot of times you'll say or you'll think hey. I have a business owner. That does it this way. And it's a pretty big company or Industry-wide stigma that they're all independent contractors. After doing some more research I found that there's a few questions you should ask yourself. If you're in this industry and that pretty much tells you they should be an employee or an independent contractor such as d you establish the training programs designed the workouts. I don't I get that all to the instructors to deal do clients pay the studio not the instructor for their sessions. Yes to the studio determined. The price declines pay. Yes is a studio set the class times. Yes the studio pay for training equipment and supplies. Yes we paid for the weights the mats everything else do the trainers worked under their individual name. Yes do you intend for your instructor to work at your studio for a while? Not Temporary so so it depends sobs jets instructors. We'd LOVE FOR THEM TO SAFER YEARS. So as you can imagine we all answered yes to most of them except one so a few key characteristics of an independent contractor would be that. The instructor has their own business and formed services for many different studios. They design their own training programs. Outside of the studio's control. They determine their own schedule on their own pricing. They bring in their own clients and they provide their own equipment so we kinda took a step back in decided. Hey we're gonNA make every employees. We're GONNA do the taxes every month on them. Were going to do that so that when if anything were to ever happen then. We know that we weren't flying under the radar. We weren't following our other friends. Who are business owners They weren't requesting to be classified as independent contractor. We're GONNA follow the rules so that we eliminate those fees and penalties now versus carrying them on later years after yours after years those penalties are GONNA add up instead of taking a step back and saying hey we might not have to pay the employees taxes now but in four years instead of paying the thirty dollars a month that we had shut of paint on them were paying thousands and thousands of dollars so really to your research. Talk to lawyers get second opinions dive into it. Head first. Hit Rock bottom scale your way back up. Do it. The correct way limit yourself from running into those catastrophes later as always be a leader I let you forever and always and have a great day. I'll see you guys next time.

"Hey, what's going on its Bill Byrne? It's time for the Monday morning podcast for Monday, April twenty fuck and ninth two thousand nineteen what's going on. How why oh all freckles in Iceland. Billy the read the oh fuck in bald Viking has returned to the motherland. You know? It's funny. I've been growing my beard out a little bit because I have I have a little bit of acting work everybody. I got a part in a. It's a mini series on lifetime. It's about verbally abusive dads, and I play the father and. Some of my lines. Are you call this popcorn? You fucking bitch. You know, so I've been working on. It's going to be an edgy one. It's going to be the first rated R lifetime movie. And that's what I'm in and be doing a lot of screaming. A lot of throwing of inanimate objects at my wife might television wife and television children, and they were built, you know, as much as you have the anger in you. We just don't find you intimidating or any way you could grow out your red beard, and I said, well, certainly absolutely I can do that. So that's what I've been doing. So look for it. The. Program working titles. Ten colts. Mommy, can you can could you kill daddy now. So sorry, I ran out of shit. Anyways. I'm out here. I've been out here since last Monday spent a week out here in Iceland. And I've had such a fuck in great time. I don't even know where to begin had some family come out with me, and my wife and my daughter. And some other people came out and. Let's see I think on Wednesday. Wednesday. We went on a whale watch a first of all my poor daughter. She she was sick. We thought she got airsick, but she just was sick sick. Puked like fucking. I don't know three or four times on the way over and we only brought like to changes a close Bill by the time. We get a frigging Iceland the poor thing. She had was like her diaper on an an frigging t shirt that we bought Seattle. We connected in Seattle. And my wife was like I was looking further Seahawks t shirt for that that be cute. And I was like that would not have been cute. So anyway, of course, we get to Iceland, and we get off the plane, and it's one of those deals where you get off the plane and then walk over to a bus. So I got her all wrapped in a blanket in. I was all nervous. She was going to get even more sick. But it was just like a twenty four hour little stomach thing that she had. And she's a tough kid meant. She really is. And I figured grown up in Hollywood or whatever she's been loving it out here. Like, she cries when we bring her back inside like she wants to be outside. She's always going Winnie Winnie, Saint it's like windy, and she loves it loves the cold weather. Yeah. She's a little she's a tough kid. She's at that age too where she wants to do everything yourself like we did a couple of sightseeing things. And we're all going to get in the van. And my wife picked her up to put her in the van, and she got all upset going. No, no. I do. I do it. I do it. And she literally get out of the van and then get back in yourself and spent like a minute trying struggling trying to get up into into the bench seat with the kid share on top. I was just waiting for you know, when she gives up. She goes Dada help, and she didn't she just stuck it out at sat down and looked at us and smiled like say toge. I could do it. I didn't say could do it in under ten minutes. But I just said I could do it. So. Have an awesome time. She's got some new words. Everybody is their new word everybody swim. Everybody eat. And then, of course, voice planner jams, my favorite things. She says she go I want iae McDonald, man. That's that's too. So anyway, the we landed on Tuesday, we didn't do anything. You know, we were all jetlagged, and my wife was able to stay up me and my beautiful daughter just passed out in the bed for like six hours, which is kind of how I get over. Like, I don't fight it the first day because I feel if I fight it the first day that I'm going to get sick. So I just go to sleep and sway. When wednesday. We went on a whale watch. And you know, the deal with the whale watch you go out, and you watch and you look for Wales on the water, and I. Up grownup us. I never did. It never did it. I've seen a couple of whales flying helicopter of the Costa Malibu, but they just like they look like little glow sticks. Because with so high up, you know, you don't want to go down low and disturbing whatever freak them out. So have the fucking wail looking like, Henry hill for the helicopters. So I'd never done it. So we went out there. And the captain said at the end of the trippy said I've been doing this for seven years. I was a top five day. We saw so many fucking Wales. I mean, I don't know if it was the same to a whatever I don't give shit. It was incredible. They were feeding on. There was a bunch of whatever. Whatever the hell they eat out there plankton of some fish. I have no ideas plankton fish. I don't know. I'm is it land lover or land lover invest lover because I've seen both it written both ways. I don't know what the fuck that is. You just saw, you know, the spray going up, then we went over there, and they cut the engine, and we just sat there and watch these things. Just coming up for food. One one time came up in its mouth was open. They weren't doing that thing where their tail kept coming out of the water because they were feeding so it was just just seem kind of do like a arch in their back coming out of the water and. Then a school of dolphins came by that had like white on on their body like on the tips of their fins of something Jesus Christ in those things fuck and fly. They were all over the place. They will race with the with the boat. Zigzagging in front of the boat. Fella goes in a movie. Senate we go fishing, which I to be honest with you. I'm a carnivore. I don't like killing animals. I just don't like doing it. And it's weird. But I'll eat them if someone else killed them. You know, like I feel like if I was in a gang. I would be the getaway driver like guys. I don't wanna go into the Bank and put my gun in somebody's face. But I'll take the money steal. My heart. Just not in it. Which is really fucking weird. So my thing is is if I'm gonna kill an animal, I'm gonna fuck an eat it, and I'm gonna eat the whole God damn thing. And I'm not gonna waste it or anything because I remember a long time ago. I went both fishing. And we shot a bunch of shit. You know, turns out I was a lefty with the bow and arrow, and I was actually pretty good at it. I shot a fucking alligator gar. And I remember we brought it up onto the boat. And I thought I was as bad ass, and they go watch that thing that thing will rip you leg. Open and stuff. And shut up through the back third of its body. And after a while just like killing fish, we're gonna eat these things, and they just they just threw them all back. And that thinks it'd be fine. We'll be fine shut it through. It's fucking body. And it just it just didn't it. I remember after once I find out we weren't eating what we were shooting. I just stopped. I was just like, yeah, I'm good. I'm good. Like what what like what the fuck? Are. We doing out here. So anyway. Go to go fishing and Niyaz never fished in her life, and they got these fishing hooks. And where there was like two on each line. Put you know, some old fuck and fish on their whatever rights bait, I believe is what the outdoorsman call it. And you know, me, and my buddy will both fishing when catching anything Niyaz never gone fishing. She dropped that line twice. And all of a sudden, she's like, oh my God. I think I got up that. I think I got something she's like on. And I see, you know, see the rod Bendon. I know she's got something she pulls it up she cut to fish with one fucking strike. And she was freaking out thought. It was awesome. And. Then we went to a different place to fish. And I dropped my line in at felt the bite, and I pulled it up, and it was it was like a trophy fish. So biggest guy Dan, Fisher, Macau's, a giant fucking cod opposed to picture of it? And. Mean the fish was beautiful, and you know, took a picture with whatever set it down. I lose said sorry, buddy. And then we, you know, cut it all up and all of that shit and eight three helpings of it to make sure ate the whole fucking thing. Cooked it right up on the boat and a little frying pan right with some butter on it was absolutely fucking delicious. And. Got a minute. Just kept getting them ahead of just like, man. This is such a wide wanna fuck that. I just kill this. It's fucking ficials beautiful. It's in the prime of its life. I just I just don't got it in me. You know what? I mean. I respect hunting in all of that shit. I think it's cool. I like watching those Rogan things when he goes out, and he shoots, elk and all of that stuff. And he's giving me some of that meat, and it's fucking delicious. I just don't I don't get it in. I literally think I I would feel less guilty. If I shot a person. Depending on what the person did. But. But I'm a hypocrite because they can I eat meat and shit. And like the next day. We ended up going to. We don't went on this trip. We went out to like these hot springs and shit. I don't know like the lava whatever the fuck is really close to the surface out here. I don't know what's going on. But the galleys fucking hot springs, and it's literally like, you know, can get upwards of. Foreign degrees celsius or whatever just like eight hundred Fahrenheit or something. Like that something along those lines for three eight nine hundred degrees. And we went we watch those things and. It was weird. It was like it was an amazing thing to watch. But it's like that's bowling water. And we're just standing here like fucking assholes two feet away from it. I mean went to go out and go look at this waterfall. In on the way, we stopped at a farm that had a little restaurant a burger and all that type of shit. And once again, I went and my daughter was looking at the cows. I know like burgers made out of steer and I was looking at the cows. And I'm like these things of fucking beautiful, especially like the light Brown. What's just gorgeous? And I was just like fuck might do. And I said to the I go I swear to God. This trip is making me. Wanna go vegetarian for minute. I can't believe why don't fuck. Do. We eat those things that beautiful and she goes because they're fucking delicious. So. I don't know what is cool about Iceland. Is you know, they have a lot of places where it's like vegetarian options and shit and. I don't know. Maybe it's just this trip. Maybe it'll wear off. I don't know what. 'cause I do love fucking steak, and I'm at one time. I watched this thing. This these guys that fucking lives out in the frontier like it's still the eighteen hundreds and he had a bunch of fucking cattle. In all of his cattle will get all banged up and shit and couldn't figure out what it was, you know, some animal trying to attack him at ninety did all the surveillance and it turned out. It was one of his his steers his cows. I can't remember what the fuck they were. Right. And this thing which is fucking being aggressive and bumping into him. And got to the point he had to get rid of the thing. So he's going, right. So the key is is to try to like, you know, just be like totally chill. And then you give them the right there, Fred. So they're not nervous. And that whatever that nervousness does make system acidic. I don't know what it does. But it makes the meat not taste good long story short. He blows us things bucking brains out like what's his face time. He goes to get made in goodfellas like the cows. Like, oh, you want me over here? Now. Bang, and that's it right close casket fucking right in the head. So. Then they come over with like this fuck and front end loader, right? A little mini one and they type things back legs. And then they lift the the bucket up, and they got this fucking steer. Like hanging by its back legs. In this guy starts butchering it. And if I was watching oh my God. This is fucking riffing. Feels all the fucking skin off all of this shit chops the head and the legs off and all of that. And the more he cut into this thing the less it became gross. And I started recognizing the cuts of meat and my mouth started watering. Fucked up those like, oh my God. That was a beautiful animal. How could you do those? Oh my God. Is that a full leg? Ooh. Look at that rib eye by the time. He got down to I was just like he was cut in these thick fuck and stakes. You know, it's like his freeze is going to be full you need that fucking thing for the next four years. So I don't know. I don't know where I where I I really I guess I'm saying I get both sides. I totally get not wanting to fucking eat an animal 'cause fucking beautiful. What the fuck that? They do on the other side is my wife says the fucking delicious, they really doesn't make any. But then then you start thinking, wait a minute. Am I lists? You know? I don't think I think I work out too much. I'd be tough be like a. Like a fucking. Like cheap steak, I feel but you know, what? I mean, you wanna get like a fat person. Sorry. I gotta just realize I gotta take some vitamin C here. So I don't get sick from my God damn show tonight and ice land. But yeah, that's should just as making me think about stuff as far as. I think Joe to Rosa. You get you get a human being that like never works out. You know, he's probably all marbled. These smokes cigarettes probably has smokey flavor. This is fucking disgusting. But I don't know. It's just shit. You think when you actually kill something? Anyway. But. Yes. And the next day we went out we looked at like some hot springs and the countryside night never done that because I've only been one other time, and I just kind of came in. I went to the balloon spa, and then I just did my show. And then that was it. And. By the with a blue van spies, just like the runoff wastewater from some local fuck and plant that they have where I don't know. I don't know what they do over here. There's something about the fucking. They pump the water, and it seems really clean energy over here. But they're not without their faults because I went down to a comedy club. And he did the the fucking. The one of the comedians did a joke about. You know, getting the clap. And he goes, and you know, Iceland, Pete people are just not not fazed by that like. Yeah. And and I was just like God damn they got a problem with that shit. It's like how do you have a fucking problem with like a cure to it? What isn't everybody just take the fucking pills or whatever the fuck, you take the shot and the S was when we get the penicillin. I don't know. Fucking just wiped the shit out. What I would do if I would be running shit over here. You know? We'll let me keep bison clean, and let's get rid of the clap. So have drinking my fuck and emergencies. All right. And then I guess, and then I took we took a helicopter tour up to an active volcano, which freaked me out. I'm like, wait a minute. Is there gonna be lava spitting outta here and shit? And all it means by actives means it. Erupted a thousand years ago. So it's still considered active like that. That's what blows on his far as like how old the earth is. And how long it takes like there was like different lava beds was ten thousand years old in one was a thousand years old, and how long it takes for the Maas to grow and grass eventually to cover it up. It's really fuck. I felt like I was in one of those Neil degrasse Tyson. Fuck and documentaries. But. But we ended up landed right on the the base of this fucking early halfway up this fucking active volcano, right, and it had all these hot springs around knowledge shit and the pilots going don't get too close to those things that was one of the guy that gets up to like like the steam gets up to like fucking four hundred degrees celsius and for all you Americans out there water boils at one hundred degrees celsius. So it's four times. What was what a boil it, and whatever the our standard system to twelve or something like that. So it's four times that. No way, it's the steam, so steamers even harder. I why do I have a fucking science background? I don't know what it's fucking hottest shit. So we went up there and. You know, I don't watch game of thrones. And I haven't watched I watched one Lord of the rings. Which I thought they should've called it. Good Lord of the rings. How long is this fucking movie there? I've never been to a longer and movie that I can really think of maybe cherry. It's a fire. You know, when you just go to something, and you just not into when is this gonna fuck an end. I just don't understand those fucking scifi movies where people just get into like weird beings with funny voices. And it's just like what what am I fucking six years old? This went from being an adult movie. Now, I'm watching the fucking Muppets take Manhattan. All right. I know this fucking jerk off with the blonde hair and the horses and going to die. He's got blonde hair. And he's on a horse. He's obviously the here over right? Vaguely remember that movie. But I feel like the lead look like fucking Ricky Schroder silver spoons era. And then they had this OBI wan kanobi looking fucking guy. Who is nice. But you know, you just could tell like the that guy smells like he's dying. You know that old person smell when they start to get that smell. Like like decaying in front of you sa- such a weird podcast. I already actually talked about you know, what Jodi Rosa, look what sort of steak he would be. Sorry, I've been out here for a while by myself. So anyway at night, I've been going up at they have their first comedy club out here in Reykjavik. Called the secret cellar, and I want to thank everybody over there. I randomly rented this comedian on the street. I forget his eyes Landik name, but I breathe gated it to Al. So I wanna thank ice Landik. Al for letting me know about the show. I went up at the Hard Rock Cafe. And then I did one show there and then three shows at the secret cell and had a great time except Saturday night. I went up, and I wasn't feeling funny. And I went up and I wasn't doing well. And there was this woman in the crowd, and she was texting my whole set. And I was just like man, that's like fucking, you know, twenty people here, I need you need you to pay attention. And she's just like, yeah, I'm not into your fucking. You're gay phobic. What else did she say head to write it down ablest material? And it was just like like, I don't know what that fucking me. I don't even know what you're listening to. You know, people who talk like that. It's like why would you go to a comedy club? It's like you're not there to laugh as much as you're there to monitor. What's being said, it's like you're going there to be offended. Anybody uses those fucking terms. It's, you know, did you see that fucking thing on the internet? It was some restaurant the United States in on the men's room in the women's room on the men's room. They had a picture of Bruce Jenner and then on the women's room door. They had a picture Caitlyn Jenner which is fucking hilarious. Then of course, it's immediately looked at is like, no that means you hate gay people or you hate what is the proper term transitioning, people, whatever the fuck you supposed to say it's like if that was in a gay club like it would just be considered campy or funny or like, whatever. But if it's in a place where there's a lot of straight people. They just automatically think that straight. People hate gay people when they do something like that. It's a pop culture joke, and you know, what I love is putting Caitlyn Jenner on the woman's door woman's room door is acknowledging the fact that you're recognizing her as a woman. I mean, there's so many positive ways that you could look at that. You could look at that like a this is a straight bar and gay people are now in the mainstream that they're being used as this fucking reference. But no, no mealy was just like, you know, taken in this way. Like, and what I love is the person who looks at how they take it is then becomes the intention of the person that put it up there. You know, and then they start fucking flipping out. I'm also convinced by the way that Twitter fans the flames of their own fucking stories like they'll throw a subject out there that nobody's talking about. And then they just say people are talking about it. So then you clicked on it. And you realize this barely anybody talking about it. And then it's still there the next day because now it's trending and now you look in there'd be like fucking ninety thousand people talking about it. And it's just like this no way, they don't have a fucking room, you know, in the offices of Twitter where like we need to get this trending. We his his something we need to get going. I don't know. I just think everybody behaves like CNN and Fox News now where it's not even like like fucking news and. And then like the people that would actually. Like think about how fucking dumb you would have to be actually leave comments on shit like that. Okay. But the people who are dumb enough to leave comments on those things then become the barometer air, quote of what the fuck people are thinking, which is such a crock of shit. Like, I I'm not in the superhero movies. But I know one of them just came out one of those marvel ones and game thing, you know. And I guess there was a gay character in there. So there's a gay character. And they're fantastic, right. Nope. There's a thing. Did they go far enough? And I just when I read that. I would I would assume. Okay. Not saying, I know how gay people think, but I would think a lot of gay people be watching that going like why the fuck would you do that? They finally put a gay fucking superhero in there. And now what we're going to bitch about it. This is just this is going to make it more difficult. I don't know. I just think extreme people. Are. The worst because they're extreme. And then they just get everybody. Yelling at everybody. It's like at what point is everybody gonna get sick just fucking screaming at each other. I was actually talking Bartik last night. He's hoping theory on how. Trump got elected was. Just just made like so much fucking sense. You know, like they try to say like, oh, Trump got elected because of bunch of racist. People came out of the woodwork, which is fucking hilarious. One of the dumbest theories I ever thought. Like really where we're all those racist. People the two previous elections when they voted against a black president. They waited 'til a white woman was running. They fucking make sense. And he was saying just with the rise of the extreme left. It pushed people on the left. Who thought they were on the left to feel like they like these people are out of their fucking minds, and it was just enough to tip the scale. I don't know. And you got the whole fuck and Russian bullshit. I didn't fucking listen. Like, my really supposed to believe that Russia. That's the first time they tampered with the fucking election. All this technology. They just waited until now. And I'm supposed to be shocked that that somebody a politician, you know, for the betterment of their career gotten bed with a group of people. They shouldn't have got in bed with you mean like what the pharmaceutical companies like what the oil companies like the people who make our fucking food and turned it into poison. I mean, like the rush to get in bed with the Russians is a pretty small, fuck and leap and eleven like Trump gets all that shit who I'm not a fan of. But they just look the other way when Obama is giving speeches to banks that caused the two thousand eight economic fucking meltdown the same guys who said we're too big to fail. It's okay. For him to go out there and take three hundred thousand dollars their fucking blood money. But for some reason because he has a fucking blue tie. He he's okay, he's a fucking rockstar. On. I swear I will never understand. Is it partisan politics is that how it goes like a piece of shit is a piece of shit in a paid off person is a paid off person, regardless of the color of their fucking. I also love how everybody fucking looks Michelle Obama like she says feminist hero. It's like she went to a fucking Ivy league school. She got a law degree, and then she threw a whole career away to stay at home and supporter, fuck and husband. Like, that's the person that's doing an arena to why don't you get a couple of fucking chick's open their own cupcake store in fucking made something of themselves, right? It might just out of my fucking mind. I don't I don't get it. She's an inspiration. She so brave every time you see she's smiling and clapping standing behind her. Fuck and husband agree with what he said, David. Sorry. Anyways. Maybe maybe maybe it's me. Maybe it is me Bill. Maybe if there's a Rena full of people saying that she's an inspiration. Maybe she's an inspiration freckled. All right. Maybe I'm wrong. All right. Let's read some fucking advertising here. Howdy. Let's talk something about something. We can all agree on saving money.

Oh, wow. That was that was early head for this week. All right fan from India. Oh, by the way. Barney went up did a couple of fucking new jokes that he absolutely fucking murdered guy. Just walked on stage. Like, he's a he's like, this is my first European show and just went up. There took me back to the first time. I ever saw Joe I saw him in. Fuck where we were in the punchline in San Francisco. And Molly schminke booked. You know, one of the last godmothers of fuck can stand up comedy somebody actually cares. Somebody who actually has the fuck and in air to actually recognize when somebody's good rather than just some fucking mouth breathing dope. Running a club. She used to try to pair the local talent with whatever headliner was coming in. So she thought that I would like Joe. And like Joe went on stage in San Francisco was always ahead of the curve when it came to like. Just being like, I don't know smart, and maybe liberal to a fault back when being liberal to a fault was actually, you know, those people were cool, you know, before it became like this like liberal to a fault. And now I'm gonna fuck and try to destroy your career. 'cause you have the audacity to not think exactly what I think, you know. Yeah. Before they became fucking, right wing lunatics. Anyway. So Joe went up there and he just fucking doing his act, and he was just Pittsburgh. I in San Francisco and the crowd was just like what the fuck it first, and he just was not going to pull back and all and I felt the crowd. Just be like all right. I guess he's not stopping and they just went along for the ride, and I was just like I fucking love this guy in last night. When I saw him to stand up an Iceland just fucking went up. Same thing. Joey be Joey big no matter where he is. He just went up and did shit and the crowd was just like skies fucking love to any tried to jokes, which really got me inspired here because I have to come up with some new material before my special comes up. Anyway fan from India. Hey, Billy, blue balls. I'm a big fan of you stand up, and I've watched all of your specials and efforts for family is fucking awesome. Thank you very much. Anyway, let me get to the point. I am seventeen years old. And I saw you during one of the Conan interview immediately became a big fan as you were the only guy in Hollywood who had the same thought processes. I say I knew I'd like people from India such a good time when I was over there. I just get scared to go back because I I had to get a fucking piece of paper to a work visa, I send my fucking visa to San Francisco, which might passports. Sorry, get some sort of work. And then when I went to India, I had to get a piece of paper that would allow me to leave. Fucking scary. That is when you're on the other side of the fucking globe. And you're in a country. Nobody looks like you, and you gotta get tuck in you know, like these guys aren't gonna let me leave right? Then I had to go to like that the fucking. I don't know what it was the embassy type place not the embassy. I don't know what it was it was like their fucking international DMV. And I went in there, and they didn't let the promoter go and headed going by myself. I didn't speak the fucking language, and I'm sitting there with some chick from Afghanistan with both looking each other laughing like they're not gonna let us leave. And I was in there for like half the fucking day. And they finally gave me the piece of paper and the entire time. You know in the back of my head. I'm just thinking like. 'cause the promoter told me he said. You know, there's a chance they won't validate this. 'cause I said this I said to the lady I go Kay. So I've got this piece of paper. So this means I can leave right? And they do this thing over in India. It's fucking hilarious, except when you're talking about leaving the country, and you need a definitive answer. They got this hilarious thing. They do where you ask him a question and they don't nod their head. Yes. Or shake their head. No. They kind of do like this bobble head thing. Which is I guess they're quivalent to shrugging their shoulders like I don't fucking. So fortunately, I was taking a Red Eye in the airport wasn't. Wasn't packed. And I kinda just guerrilla my white through. Like, I started getting angry at the guy. The guy was doing the bobblehead thing go, dude. I I went to the thing. I got the thing. I gotta get outta here. And he's sitting there going like this buddy the planes leave. And let's go come on. Gimme gimme that. Gotta go ahead. I'm like Bill. What are you doing this guy and guys going to detain? You're losing your shit here at the fucking Mumbai international airport. But he led his fuck and go and out the whole time. I was walking down the plane. I was just waiting for this hand to reach out just on my shoulder and tell me that I had been detained because they didn't let some. Some singer rod. I forget what her name was. It was like Nora Jones level. I'm not saying it was her that level singer some beautiful. You know, pop star piano plan goddess, and they didn't let her out in fucking. The ball Jinja like there's no fucking way. They let me out. But somehow I got past that guy, and I didn't feel comfortable until after we connected and Dubai in. I was still doing the math. Which kinda helped me forget that we were flying over Iraq. At that point that belief. I was like are they going to fuck in this is some shit where I get to the United States. And then that's and then they send me back. I when I cleared customs in the US, I was so fucking relief. But having said that when I went to India like this some of the funniest just naturally funniest fucking people I ever met they was such ball breaking assholes. And I mean that in a good way like the comics over there, just breaking my balls and trying to get me in trouble. When I was used to talk about this and all of this shit when I was over there. So anyway, so this guy courses sky watching me on Conan he thinks. Yeah. I don't know what it is. I don't know what it is. When I was in India. I was like these are like tan Irish people. All right. You helped me when I was really low, and I wanted to thank you for that. I'm sure you get shit on should get a shit ton of these sorts of emails, but I want you to know that all your fans appreciate your kids. Some point you gotta pull up on the compliments here and gets the question. He said, I wanna be a doctor, and yes, you may think oh the stereotypical Indian. But that's my passion man, dude. You guys are. So fucking smart that the offensive stereotype was like what you think I'm going to be a doctor. That's like a bad. Steph. Not a bad stereotype is I think that the bed stereotype is thought it'd be a fucking snake charmer? You know, beating an elephant that didn't wanna work for you. I think that that would be a stereotype of me say you'll get Dr that's like a positive thing. Right. Anyways. Can you give some encouraging advice on ladies as I know? You know, a lot of I really don't. Fucking. Appreciate the shit outta you man, come to India bangel, bangel bangel or to be precise and go fuck yourself. Can you give me some encouraging advice on ladies? All right. Well, now, you got me in my head words, just like the fact that you're yet another Indian guy who's going to excel in Matt and medicine is that just like boring to women over there. Why don't you do this? Don't you become the jacked Indian dude who's going to be a fucking doctor and make a great God damn living. Like what the fuck is the problem with that? You know, they, you know, the through line with women around the fucking world is you can't make them happy. We what does this guy go to fuck and do? I don't know. Just I dunno become get I guess what you have to do what you're suggesting is that your yet another Indian guy who's going to be a doctor, right? So what is exciting about that? So imagine these Indian women are just rolling their eyes. Like, oh God like, and then it's like, what do you have to be gotta be like a neurosurgeon to get excited. You know, you guys so smart over there that literally like being like, a proctology just they look at you like your fucking cleaning out dumpsters. You know, what give you some encouraging vice on the ladies? I mean, I know it takes a lot to be a doctor. So I don't know if you have time for a hobby, but. Yeah. I don't know Loretta play an instrument go to the gym and get fucking Jack to you got to do something to separate yourself from the fucking. The flu I guess of Indian doctors over there. You seem like you got a sense of humor. Do you know what the what the fuck? Do you need to do you got to beg for your fucking dinner here in your goddamn? Doctor woman wouldn't wanna fuck and that's not enough over there. I don't know. This is a weird topic. Because when I was over there, I saw this fucking t shirt that said it said real men don't rape. So I don't know what the fuck is going on over there. If your doctor and you're not going around raping women. I mean, doesn't that put you fucking? You gotta be at least a second round draft pick over there. I don't know. I was only there for a day and a half. You know, I spent half a one of my days trying to fuck and get a goddamn piece of paper to tell me that I can leave. I still remember that fucking guide the airport. Thank god. Thank god. I got there late. There was a fucking redeye flight. And it was like nobody there. Mike, I got the piece of paper fucking going. Basically what I said the guy doing the bobble head thing. He finally gave me the thing back fucking stamped. No. I had cleared that it was weird. He wasn't like customs. It was just some fucking guy behind a podium. It was so unnerved when I think about it. I still get nervous. I'm gonna ask my agent because I would love to go back over there again. Like, I said, I really enjoyed. I don't know. It was like India's like it's a fucking special placement. I don't know what it is. I mean, it's an environmental disaster is just too many like fucking people. But other than that, you know, if you're gonna have a billion people in the country, you know. It's just amazing. How fucking cool they were. And they were that jammed in with each other. 'cause I if it was like that in America we fuck and kill each other. I don't know what the fuck is wrong with. I'm reading this book. Some book about war. And and they were just talking about the different groups of people. Different armies and Americans were the only ones. That when they were detained with each other. They get to a point where they would kill each other that they had like violence. Like American versa Merican violence like they didn't have Australian versus stray Lena, whatever like that. At least according to this fucking book. And it was just like. Yeah. Well, you know, we are a nation of lunatics. But you would think that Australia. Australia's got a lot of the same sort of history. You know, we got a bunch of lunatics fuck and leave England. Go to a new land. There's people there, and then they eventually fucking do horrible things to them. And then take over. See think that no, I don't know. Why was such fucking maniacs? Maybe I don't know. All right. I s- Lander about Iceland. Hey, Bill, I'm from Iceland. And heard you state on your previous podcasts that Iceland wouldn't take any shit from bankers. And put them to jail that this is absolute bullshit will. I thought that you guys put like you were the only ones who put bankers politicians in jail after two thousand eight that's the story. I was told. So I would love to hear your story. Some who were involved with the economic crash of two thousand eight were tried but most of but most if not all of them got away with it. Well, I was surprised with the jail sentences. They weren't that long a simple Google. Search would reveal to you that this is not the case. I've right. You don't need to slap me around. The we have to Google search everything that people tell me today. Many of these men's are doing the exact same thing. They were up to before the crash of. Yeah. Well, welcome to the United States because doing it again, all these stupid fucking giant high rises that they're building. We'll just put the money over here. And that makes it different because this time it's not houses it's buildings for example. Life pension funds are mandatory in Iceland about ten percent. Out of your monthly salary goes to these funds that are supposed to provide for you. When you get old a small group of people are in charge of those funds, and they invest in all kinds of things mostly real estate. They buy up all new real estate and then rent them out for outrageous prices to the common man every year. They tell us they're making so much profit that this leftovers for the executives to get insane. Bonuses, meanwhile old people are getting reduced pensions. Because. Quote reasons. Most recent news I've seen from these pension plans is that they're going to raise the mandatory monthly payment from ten percent. Fourteen percent because it's good for you yet to their fucking criminals. They're fucking criminals. And you know, what it is? They just pay off the politicians, and they look the other way. That's like in my country. When now if you make over ten million dollars, they want to charge seventy percent fuck and tax rather than go after the criminals that have put us into that fuck and financial position. Yeah. My whole countries like a bunch of these just clapping every time. They have troops. Go by going. I support the troops. I support the truth. And you're not allowed to question or be like what the fuck are we doing when is this going to be over we're bankrupt. What the fuck this anybody have a plan? If you do that people look at you like, you don't support the troops. And you don't appreciate the sacrifices. It all gets balled up into that. And you cannot have a fucking intelligent conversation about it. It's fucking brutal. Like, we are. We are. We're beyond bankrupt. We've soap surpassed the legal amount of debt that we can get. And we did like our solution was just keep raising the amount of debt that we could get. He said, anyway, I would I just wanted to tell you Iceland, is not the utopia everyone thinks this can't wait to see your set in Iceland. And I hope you're act isn't as shit as you say it is sincere. Sincerely, go. Fuck yourself, a fellow cut for my. Well, I gotta be honest with you. This is one of the most expensive fucking places I've ever been to in my life. Like, you know, I went out and I got to fucking medium pizzas and two glasses of water. And it was like fifty four thousand fucking krona's over fifty. I don't know what the fuck was. I always just move the decimal point over a couple of fifty four hundred. So it's basically fifty four bucks too goddamn pizzas. Mediums not even large. I've just like this is like fuck it annoyingly expensive over here. The fact that the bankers don't go to jail the fact that all they do is control money, and they're not even tough, and they don't even have like weaponry like that's gonna have to be. I don't know. A point where. People rise up against that shit. You would like to think, but. I will say though, the fact that we spent so much fucking so much of our energy. Arguing about shit. Like, you know, was the gay character in the action movie gay enough? You know, what Jay Z said about gentrifying neighborhoods or fucking, you know, the gender neutral bathrooms and just the shit that were fucking arguing about I'm not saying that there's not points to be made this not improvements that need to be made in those areas. But like it's far as like a priority. It's like your house is on fire, and you're talking about how you need to buy a new toaster. You know, or we really need to fuck and mop the kitchen floor or something it's like the priority system. Which I actually think. Is no different than the bankers. The same way. The bankers are being fucking selfish and taken all the God damn money and giving themselves like just a obscene fucking bonuses. I feel like regular everyday people. Are the same way. Where all they give a fuck is about problems that affect them rather than the big problems that affect all of us. You know, it should be all about fucking, you know, getting bankers under control and in global warming. That's those those are the two biggest fuck and things that that should be on the table right now. You know, not, you know, fucking telling twenty something year old white women that they're brave because they sent out a tweet. That's just what I think. Anyways. Fucking. Thank you is the next one good morning. Billy ole Bill, fuck charm. Love your podcast. You're the best yada yada, yada. That's the way I like to have a compliment get that shit out of the way. And let's go. All right. Any ways I like guys are already anyways. Like how I say. I just wanna thank you due to the fact that last night I went to a bar at Buffalo Wild Wings got off work and decided to drink a few Bruschi. And as I was watching one of many TV's. I saw a Zip Recruiter at and it made me being a podcast listener. What at in L N me being a podcast listener said it a little too loud, and this chick caught it knew where it was from an acknowledgement acknowledged, oh, you said zip. And then she went recruiter. All that's so fucking cool. She had just gotten off work and went to Buffalo Wild Wings to relax. Eat some wings. And there was an empty seat in between us. Therefore, I offered her to sit next to me. And she said, yes, sure, I offered a bear. And she said, I'll take one. But it's okay. You don't have to pay for it. So I didn't Jesus crisis. Fuck him. Fund unicorn here. However, we were chatting up and ninety eight percent of the topic was all about the podcast in two hours pass of just talking and drinking, and there was a cinema in the mall. So I after she wanted to go watch endgame, and she said, yeah. Went to the cinema and had a great time. We ended up exchanging numbers in this morning. She texted me. Good morning. We should hang out sometime next weekend. Some hoping this could be the start of something. Good. Can't wait to tell the wife. Ha ha I'm joking Jesus Christ. Just scared the shit on me anyways. I just thought I should take the time to thank you electrically. Thanks and for re thanks for reading and go fuck yourself. All right. Awesome. That make it a love connection. I'm on a regular Woolery. Used to love about Chuck Woolery. On fucking love connection aside from his amazing headed hair his tannin his fucking perfect teeth. When some. I would say something crazy, and he we kind of put his hand up to his head and then show off his fucking Rolex presidential just blinded. You at home he was the fucking man and the ladies love them. All right, conspiracy corner. Huge Chuck Woolery fit. Hey, Billy, Bruins out speaking shop, but those how about your Boston Bruins and condolence condolence my condolences to fucking mabley fans man Jesus Christ. I mean, I mean, I actually got to say are maple fans. The best fans on all sports. You name one other fucking team. That has had the track record fifty one fucking years that they have had. Just breaking them fans hearts over and over and over and over again, and you still you can't get a ticket. You know, I've done that NHL radio show. So I got some hookup. So anytime I wanna go to NHL game. If I wanna be contin call somebody up, I can get free tickets. I can do that anywhere in the league except Toronto Toronto the NHL front office. Like, we can't even get tickets. Despite they lost three game sevens. This decade alone. It's still you can't get a ticket. We stand out on the street and fucking scalpel like the old days. So it was a hell of a series. And like I said, and I meant it. If you guys beat the Bruins, I was gonna root for you guys. So having said that the Boston slam is still alive. I mean, it's fucking long shot. I'm trying to think of if a city everyone the Stanley Cup in NBA title in the same year. I don't think that's ever happened. I know the Bruins went to the finals eighty seven in the Celtics went the fight. We both lost that year. We lost to the Lakers and we lost to the Edmonton Oilers. And I gotta tell you if you are going to lose those to fuck respectable losses to the Magic Johnson Showtime, Lakers and the fuck in. Talking one thousand nine hundred seven the Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier Edmonton Oilers. So anyways, I'm missing all of this ship a bar out here. So he's gonna get me caught up. He found of sports bar last night. But I've missed all of the I miss game seven of the Bruins Toronto. And. I did. I just had my buddies just texted me letting me know when there was a score. And then they'd send me video, and I would watch the score whatever the goal, but I know that the Bruins Columbus are one one. I heard it got real chippy in the second game. And it's killing me 'cause I know it's going to be a fucking sick s physical fucking awesome series. And I'm also I wanna see toward rally. Got like he's reminded me of of one. I've been reading is. He's kinda changed. His approach is not as much as a hard ass. What I saw him smiling after they won game two in Tampa. Like who the fuck is that guy he looks like he's having fun. And it reminded me of dick for meal when he went to hard with the eagles before Super Bowl fifteen any kind of burn him out felt in affected their their play. And then when he came back with the Rams and ninety ninety had more fun, and they won. So it's reminding me of that story. So that's going to happen. I wanna see. But if you play my Bruins, I gotta root against you, obviously. So and I've missed all the Celtics just heard kyri Irving, and everybody's finally got on the same page that white kid. We got from Utah was his name. Hey Hayward Haywood got kid. I don't know anybody anymore. I he had a big game game one play Milwaukee. And that takes me back to kid as a Kidman Celtics used to always have to go through fuck, Milwaukee, you know, Sidney Moncrieff and all of those fucking guys. I wanna Jack sick on that team was was. Always in Seattle. Can't remember anyways, Email you from Toronto? And no, I'm not here to whine about the playoffs, New Jersey devil fan. Instead, I e emailing you hang on my screen. Just went away Email you to get your advice on this ad. I came across this past week the self checkouts are bad enough. But now every self is taking a scan of your face. I'm sure they have some software on the computers that are hooked up with their security cameras that can do facial recognition. But this is next level shit. They'll be scanning your face while you're skimming through which Hamry creams. You should get this is. Yeah. This is the shit that they're fucking doing man is. These politicians are just sitting back letting them do it cameras that guess your age and sex or coming to store shelves. Dude. I swear to God I'm gonna start shopping with like wearing fucking clown mask. You know, or you know, when Asian people are getting sick, and they were that mask 'cause they're considering enough to try not to get other people sick just walk in with the fucking surgical mask. Just do that. And then they'll come up with some sort of Bill that they connect to nine eleven that they're afraid in it makes other people unsettled, and they don't know if you're fucking terrorist. When you come in dressed like fucking Clara Belle. I didn't wanna fuck it read. Oh, that's just fucking ridiculous. I love when you watch like corporate news. And they're like, ooh. That's it was thing. And you just see them their mouths gagged with all the fucking money. They fucking shoved up their asses this such I I got me on you. I cannot get over what fucking pussies people are. When you know what I knew when it comes to like, that's why you gotta work for yourself. So you can just say what the fuck you thinking. Instead of well all. Fucking ball is human beings, grow a fucking dick and deliver the news. And can you have a Walter Cronkite moment just say what the fuck you thinking? Just to see somebody do that on the news. Even if he got fucking fired you're gonna start up podcast gonna make fucking more money on the fucking news guy that actually says what he thinks about the news rather than just reading this unsettling shit and just being a fucking team player. I don't know as much as you don't maybe like fucking Glenn Beck, or whatever that guy got fired. And he went up making zillions of dollars. But no one's really listening to are. They I don't know. Maybe it's a bad idea. Don't fucking listen to me for career advice anyways. He's just a fucker. Sometimes. All right. Here's an Email from a lady, which I love I we don't hear from the ladies. It's fucking God damn sausage fest over here. Fucking brought worse on the fire every goddamn podcast here. He's just a fucker sometime whether hell is it? Sometimes on Friday nights. I like to watch scary movies with my husband and kids. My husband always gets pissed off halfway through the movie about me being a horrible parent in Russia's the children out of the room. These are thriller movies, not gore or extreme violence. Our boys are seven and eleven. They are well adjusted. Good boys. They are on the honor. Roll at school. We're involved parents in eat family dinner together every night. All right. Well, looks like you're crushing it. So far. We are not parents that expose them to everything and anything, but they do get spoken to about real shit. My issue is my husband lets them play fortnight, call of duty listen to Eminem in all alternate of rock music. Yeah. What the fuck? They can't watch us thriller at that point. Even hear your podcast fucking sick of being told. I'm bad. Parent be well, first of all if you're going to try to get your partner to hear what you're saying in how you feel. You can't say that they're a bad parent. Who fucks going to be listened? After that, you're gonna get offended you're gonna get defensive then that's going to be end of any sort of. Logical conversation, right anyways. I wanted to express said because I want to expose them to scary movies on occasion. It's something. My sister in I always did growing up with my dad, and we were not messed up from it by husband says that because I work with children as a school administrator, I should know not to expose their minds to this because it will fuck them up and they're playing what fortnight is. But I imagine that's one of those gun games and listen to Eminem in this fucking podcast. I wouldn't let my kid listen to this podcast. My husband says of a about he will persevere on this topic until I wanna punch him in the face. Instead, he ruins the movie and the kids leave the room, and I go to bed. What are your thoughts on this Myo horrible, mom, keep in mind if there's a sex scene? It's fast forward. Thank you. As a hypocrite. It's like he can expose them to fucked up shit because he's into that stuff. For night, call of duty listening to Eminem. I don't want all rock has to do with anything. But. I think they'll be all right. You know, and I used to watch those fucking movies. I was fine. Like, I understand him. Not wanting them to watch those movies. I get that. But not if you're also letting them do the other stuff, so what I would try to do is just sit down and say, listen, I wanna talk to you about this because we keep fighting about these movies. And this is a question. I don't want you to get set. I'm just asking because I wanna find a solution. Not have a fight here. Why do you feel that thrillers movies are bad for them to watch? But it's not bad for them to play violent video games or listen to Eminem or the Monday morning podcast. If he pops in gets mad, then then he's he's a fucking baby. And what you have to do. Then is keep your cool. And as he flips out don't flip up you have to remain calm. And just sit there and be like, you know, you gotta be like, Ben Kingsley and sexy base. Like why you swearing? I'm not swearing you. Stay in that fucking thing. Like, why are you raising voice? I'm not raising voice on trying to find solution here and. You don't your name calling? And you're doing all of this stuff. Like, this is an acceptable. Maybe you know, when you come down, and you wanna talk about this. All right. I am more than willing. If you can give me a logical reason, I'm more than willing to stop doing this. But if you can't give me a logical reason I'm going to continue the tradition of watching the movies. Like, I did with my dad with my kids, and you're not gonna come in and ruin them. And tell me that I'm a horrible parent. You know, what you need to put your foot down sweetheart? Okay. Yeah. I mean as far from where I'm sitting that guy doesn't have a fucking leg to stand on. I would I would think that sitting there watching some stupid thriller movie is not as bad as fucking playing video game where you're shooting people because I remember I used to play video games. Right. And they were just taking up too much of my time. So I I literally unplugged the fucking thing in stuck in the back of the closet, and I am plugged all the wires because I knew I would never be able to figure it back. You know, how to do? I didn't keep the instruction booklet, and I never watched him begin never played him again. But like I used to play this sniper game. And when you press down on this one button, it would have that, you know, the sniper X in would like focus in on somebody's head and I played that game so much over the course of a week. I walked out of the streets of New York, and I was looking at people, and I was seeing that sniper thing on their fucking head. Now, I'm not a lunatic. So I didn't do anything. But it was just like what the fuck is that? Like, I don't I never watched a thriller movie. You know, and then walked outside and thought about, you know, stabbing somebody or shooting somebody. You know, why? Because I think the fucking movie it's not as connected to it in its over in like ninety minutes where like you can spend a day playing video game just disappeared on rabbit hole. Yeah. All right. Well, you know, I mean granted all I heard what your side of the story. But for one I'm hearing, I one hundred percent think you're in the right? So good luck with that put you foot down. But I'm telling you don't seems like your husband is an emotional person. So when you get with somebody like that, you it's up to you to drive the ship of emotion, you have to stay fuck and calm, and if they're flipping out and you're not flipping out, then they just look like an idiot. I don't know. That's basically all right plowing ahead here last one found out. My sister had has different dead need advice. Okay. Dear Billy ball gag.

I get along very good with my dad, and I feel like I'm his little twin my looks personality work ethic, all resemble my father. Well, that's great. My sister looks nothing like him. But resembles my mom, I recently got too drunk with my dad and his wife, and he. Were complaining about my sister. Always calling him asking for money. He's always treated her strangely. Oh my God.
