Fresh "Wright" from Filmspotting
"Abba jason schwartzman appears in it. Because he's a sparks fan. He's got a great line he says. I don't want to see this movie. I don't wanna learn too much about them. And then he says i'll watch it. Wait for it. Because i'm in it but that that resonated with because they are so mysterious that you've got a documentary. Now that maybe undoing. Some of that. And i wonder if some of their fans is much as usually wanna know even more about the artists behind the music. You love. Maybe with sparks. That's not the case i will say. What right does so well here. He successfully demystify 'nigma that sparks while adding to the mythology. You don't learn too much too. Schwartzman's concern partly because i don't think he can learn too much about them and the career they've had and one dock certainly isn't going to do it but i think right also just inherently understands what to probe and when to push in which threads to poll in which wants to just let be and kind of let everyone consider for a little bit and it's got that edgar right cheeky sense of humor to that is appropriate for edgar right. It has material but also matches sparks so well the title itself. Even you realize early on right just addresses it is kind of its own provocation at the brothers and maybe their fan base because the band is called sparks and they are brothers but we've named them they are not the sparks brothers and they actually say they hate it when they get referred to as the sparks brothers so edgar wright made a movie called the sparks brothers. He appears in it once or twice. He's got a couple of talking head moments where he about his fandom and his title underneath his name is fan boy and then the one that actually did make me laugh out loud. maybe i'm just an easy audience. Josh is he had john taylor. Onscreen with nick rhodes. So i'm speaking here to the the eighties music fans among us john. Taylor and nick rhodes both onscreen and this is really more of a visual joke. And since you're looking at me you'll get it under one of them. It said duran enough of the other one. It said durant very nice. I loved it so yeah. I'm a big fan of sparks brothers movie. I have started to dip my toe in the sparks musical catalogue and again that could probably take you a lifetime at this point to really get through but there's some really great stuff there and it made me. Here's another thing it did for me. Even more excited about the film annette coming out the leo's character film starring or without driver. Burien coachee alright and adam driver because actually it is completely based on music by the sparks brothers. They wrote every part of it and actually are the creators of the material that is being adapted for the screen. And that's actually kind of a touching moment in the film to because they had a couple other moments in their lives where hollywood tease them or they thought they were gonna get their chance on the big screen. I'm blanking on who it was. I think maybe truffaut at one moment they were going to collaborate with tufo or some other french. New wave director film was a big driver of big inspiration for them. And i think it was truffaut and they had another moment where tim burton tim. Burton was gonna make one of their movies. When timber was at his height and that fell through and so they've always kind of had their heart broken when it comes to their music and movies and now a nets coming out. So again just gives me another impetus to want to see that movie when it opens so yeah. I definitely recommend the sparks brothers which is currently playing in limited release. So should we talk about next week's plans adam. I note here from sam. I it just says f nine as the teaser for. Is that if you're doing a fast and furious anything else. I guess maybe maybe and we will note that basically as soon as that show is done being recorded. We're outta here. We're both going on vacation with our families so we will have an off week.

They formed in nineteen sixty seven. Put out twenty five studio albums released between seventy one and twenty twenty. The documentary describes them as your favourite bands. favourite band. Completely new to me. Were you familiar with sparks before this. Doc adam would you think of it. Well i do want to clarify what you just said you said completely new to you. Were they truly completely new to you just as they were to me meaning before. This documentary came out before you maybe saw anything about it online. Had you ever heard of sparks or anybody referred to as the sparks brothers or ron and russell nail. Not until they were mentioned as a subject of edgar rightback. Yeah exactly so you watch this film. And i think maybe part of the measure of success in terms of whether or not right accomplish what he was trying to accomplish and whether or not. It's a good documentary. You have to answer. that question. does a band that. I've never even heard of really warrant a documentary and justify the time i'm going to put into it. And by the end you're legitimately wondering how nobody has made a movie about them before. And you're you're questioning your validity as a music fan as an arts connoisseur. You are not questioning. And i'd say even after about fifteen minutes you're not questioning their validity as artists because of the music because of the story or both both are. That's the thing you can't you can't separate them the tagline on the website. You see if you places says fifty years twenty five albums three hundred and forty five songs unlimited genius
Fresh update on "wright" discussed on CNBC's Fast Money
"Our long been surrounding the amc trade. So let's talk regulation now. Is there regulatory crackdown coming. Let's bring him. Jacob frenkel former. Sec enforcement lawyer. He is now a partner at dickinson. Wright jacob great to see you again what do you think or who do you think what group do you think is number. One on the list for the sec. To investigate when it comes to this whole trade the answer the answer to your question about estimate is the key is really the key. Investigation would be those who were involved in the momentum trading. That would be that would be whether it be institutions individuals where i mean those were trading off the credit for whether it was those who were messaging on the board and trading with the sec will look at his everyone who traded in these memes stocks those or that were trading in disproportional disproportionate percentages to what their fundamentals demanded. And you go back. We talk about with respect to options. The word fundamentals kept coming up time and time and time again. Your last segment in fact is what we're really talking about is what is he going to do from an investigative perspective with respect to all these securities that were running well beyond what the fundamentals demand. Isn't that a judgment then by the sec. That fundamentals either warrant or don't warrant an investigation. That's not really the role the sec. To say hey. The stock is worth this. And so we're going to investigate the trading surrounding it. What it's worth a great question because he really not talking about using fundamentals as the as the metric for the investigation because there's nothing should prevent a stock from being able to run twenty percent or thirty percent on its own. The real issue was was there. Any fraudulent activity involved in the trading was her manipulative activity. Were for example individuals. Try encouraging buying saying. Hey i'm in the stock you know. Let's get on this for whatever reason when they in fact they're selling the stock so i think those are the dynamics going to look at from an investigative perspective when you framed the question originally about regulation. I don't think you can regulate here because you really can't create multiple tiers of regulation or apply different metrics these securities. So all right. We're up against top of the hour. Jake it's always good to hear from you. Though jacob frenkel sounds like everybody may have a target on their back at this point coming up next we got your final trades. Welcome back to fast money. It is time for the final trade. That went fast right ten good time. Snow really interesting. Focus today We talked about. Macy's look i. I like.

What Separates Humans From Other Animals?
"Animals. I mean my dog has a 401k. Also why do we pace. When we're stressed or anxious like in the bugs bunny cartoons. Somebody's waiting outside the delivery for so andrew came across a paper in the journal. Frontiers in psychology which. I was so charmed by that. You've read as we can talk about it. It's called acquisition of a joystick operated video task by pigs. How could i forget for the listener. I'll just explain. These experiments were carried out at penn state university. There were four pigs. A pair of yorkshire pigs named hamlet an omelette and a pair of panna pinto micro pigs named ebony and ivory. I guess after stevie wonder and paul mccartney or the song of that name or after piano keys and the paper describes what the pigs were and were not able to learn in these experiments manipulating video game joystick with their snouts. And what i really want to know is tell us how it changes your thinking as a psychologist if it all about non human animals their capabilities. The way we should think about them perhaps differently about ourselves differently. Well thank you for broadening. My academic horizons. I would not have read this paper on video games and makes were it not for our friendship so i i will just say that when i read this line i literally laughed out loud after twelve weeks of training. Hamlet and omelette were terminated from the experiment because they had grown too large no fit within the constraints of the test pen. Academic research is tough. You lose fifty percent of your research pool just like that so anyway now down to two test subjects by the way. So one of my intuitions is that one ought not an. I understand that this research is hard. But maybe not generalize to olive pig them based on this very small number of pigs because look at wilbur wright some pig yeah so maybe ebony or ivory were some one of them was much better than the other in the research so there's various across pigs even yes.

"Website Now to to you know to their to their To their benefit. I guess the You know apparently. The government website designers are often instructed to make websites that don't work very well So maybe they thought that they were supposed to do that with kobe. Nineteen as well but Whereas most government websites don't get a lot of public scrutiny. Obviously cove nineteen vaccination websites. Get get a lot of scrutiny. Yes and they've just you know they've they've they've been disasters so some sometimes you know. Governments will will concede that they're incapable of of Of doing these things and they will You know put it. Put it out to bid to private contractors in the dumbest ways possible In ways that don't really stimulate competition but that simply Give monopoly to a private party. Who then Botches up the website or whatever project. They're they're trying to They're they're trying to work on It's it's very difficult to get people to focus on key causes in a effects so when things go bad you know. Oftentimes they just Blame the blame the status quo instead of blaming the specific Specific problem which in the case of of kobe was it's You know nobody really figured out. How things spread. But you know back to the overarching point. That market competition typically beats government. Monopoly i think of abe lincolns land. That the philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of the government in the next. I think we have failed to teach the rules of market based free market economics. And i think that when you're going into an audience of folks that are not already receptive to at least listening to that argument and they see the government as the comforting arms the healing arms. The all carrying the all doing. It's a hard hard argument to win. We're gonna continue our conversation with robert wright senior research fellow at the american institute for economic research coming up next. We're talking to robert. Wright senior research fellow at the american institute for economic research pieces entitled a pandemic of ignorance in folks as we turned the corner. i'm in texas. We've lifted the lockdown. We've we've removed the mask mandate. That's not the case across the country. We know that the democrats are kicking and screaming even my mayor and macaroni. Judge here democrats. They hate this going away. This gives them an incredible amount of power and relevance there on tv everyday. They love this but has written a piece called a pandemic of ignorance and i hope what we can do as we turn the corner is one silver lining out of this and that is to learn the tendencies of those who would have the government. Take away our freedom in exchange for the perception of some safety insecurity.
"wright" Discussed on The Michael Berry Show
"As we have talked about throughout the show today and seemingly for the last year there are so many problems revealed in our policy making and and a problem solution process that have been revealed by this pandemic a great example Sort of a a case in point keeping a list holds onto the receipts has been written by robert wright. Robert e right is a senior research fellow at the american institute for economic research. That's a i. e r. We've had some of their folks on before they they've made for very good guests particularly this last year From folks who dig deep into the data you know if we're going to follow the science. Let's follow the data. Let's follow where it goes. Let's actually look at real facts instead of opinions anyway. This this piece Was was published a an a. e. r. on february sixteenth. It's entitled pandemic of ignorance. We've posted it to the blog. Michael berry show dot com. But what actually like to do is go lesson one through five is how he lays this thing out and go one by one. Let me ask you robert to start with lesson number one. Doing nothing is often better than doing something. What did you mean by that Thanks i'm into all that Mister perry Yeah doing doing. Nothing is is usually better than than doing something. We we've forgotten this is used to be the default The americans understood that most problems are are self This is a goes across a wide range of biological and economic and social issues And would've worked and and right now is finally working in terms of of cove. It as well but Basically the the basic idea is is that Variables will often Move within Within a range so you can't just take what's happening over the last little bit and extrapolate it out to infinity and assume that things are going to be great or things are going to be awesome. awful I'm reminded of a young a young journalist. Who black my door. A few years ago when i was Still teaching in south dakota and he thought he was going to win a pulitzer a peabody or something because he had noticed that That commodity prices have been trending upwards and he just extrapolated out ten years and said you know in ten years. All my money's going to be going for food and i won't have any money for so I stepped the young man down and disabuse them of that of that.

"Feel real. I mean like. I've been talking back and forth with joe unanimous whose father was china united. This and it just blows my mind when my phone rings and you look down. It says united's common chosen. Holy like other when i worked in new orleans. I did a story about pete. Marriage and i was talking. I'd left a message for his wife. His widow and her son was playing relish or something and my phone rang. One day in my apartment in baton rouge. I looked down and it was a nine eight. Five number in the caller. Id said muravich. And i was just so you know. Because i guess they just did not changed it so i i like ways in which you can show how these big names are. They're still tentacles of their actual lives in the world. You know charlie connerly. Who was d- star quarterbacks. For the new york giants in the fifties i mean these star he was the first marlboro man. I mean he was a really famous guy. He is from my hometown clarksdale mississippi. I knew miss the sweet. Oh man who ran connerly shoe store like i didn't even really. He was very normal unassuming. His widow still allow you know. They're these people who we think of as existing in the firm of like carey grant or something and yet there are people who knew them as human beings still around. That's really interesting to me right now. I don't i don't know why or how that's a story. But i'm interested in that i'll get you out of here on this because it's a good segue to my last doll and i'm really grateful for your time. I know how busy are and and whatnot but courts. We were chatting last night on text and in one of those individuals to me one thing. That's so fascinating to me about. Yesteryear is that because we did not have constant strains of information at our fingertips are heroes. Were mythical in ways. They aren't today. Like if lebron james had been lebron james in nineteen sixty four the myth of lebron james would-be paul bunyan like and that's the way that i'd view junior johnson and one of the thrills of my life was for two straight years at the nasa. I'm on nascar hall of fame voter for two straight years. I sat beside junior johnson during the vote. And i found myself not listening tool damn thing being said by the panel. I was just staring at junior and watching him. Stare like everything everybody was saying. He's like cab. God bless smoked these but it just just a fascinating figures. So i i'm going back now and i'm rereading tom wolf's the last american hero and as you now like it made me it. I injected that into our text conversation last evening. And i asked you what story that someone else wrote. Do you wish was yours and your answer was interesting. Share it and why. I think they're two contenders for the greatest magazine story ever and i feel pretty strongly than i'm right about this One is time gino's followed man. Tom works for us now. He's just the goat that story. I have you know it's just. It's perfect and then the other one is a fabulous writer named john jeremiah sullivan. Who wrote a profile axl rose that i just love. I mean i i. That is a one day. I think i would like to have that gear. That club in the bag. I mean like he That story's really great so those two You know. I mean i spent time junior to and you just are like i walked through the pits of. What's that race track over in winston salem. On some adm yeah. I walked through the pits There with him. And it was an all i did was the identity. Just o'clock people's reaction and it was unbelievable and then to out along chair outside of race holler at bowman gray and have junior johnson. Asked you can make you a slick meat. Sandwich is just one of the greatest things that has ever happened. Yes you one hundred percent can junior. I talked at least every now and then You know it's a it's a tremendous loss for For the johnson family. I mean that guy was an american icon. You know it was hard for me to believe. He drove me all around north wilkes county and was showing me the roads that used to drive now just had this out of body experience. Like i'm rod around junior johnson and he showed me where he used to run whiskey and drove me up the holler we used to live and it was just like. Oh wow you know So junior something else i mean. Yeah i did that. And i'm sure you did too. But i went and had breakfast at his shop at his house once you know because they have all those old boys come from all over and they sit around and he talks about you know you just tell stories. I love Junior had a son very late in life and so junior was already an old man. When this kid was a boy so Junior story about the kid entered the soapbox derby and had to build a car and sex. You can imagine all of a sudden. They're building new. Your johnson's right shop in junior gets really competitive. And so he said. I'm hiding the lead in it. They're cheating and you know he he. He called up the world drifting champion in germany and got the to send him the wheels. Put those things on the car. And junior said time we had that thing we had to brakes on it because once you're down a hill witness in the teachers that they were cheating and it was just like well. Don't invite junior johnson into your soapbox derby like the tiger didn't go crazy that tiger tiger you know like don't wouldn't you take what's going to happen. And just the idea of junior johnson with his eight year old ten year old kid building. The world's fastest soapbox derby car. I was just like this is the greatest thing i've ever heard. But just just what. An absolute legend very few people in history have fascinated me quite like junior. And that's it. I mean you you nailed it. That's him if you ain't cheating you ain't trying. I love it. I appreciate you. Thank you for your time. Thank you for your for your amazing spirit and We're gonna have to do this again. Because i mean like i could sit here and talk to you all day. We just need whiskey and it's like the perfect day to early in the morning. Wake i love bigger brother. Thank you the ating nude really.

I can tell you exactly where i was standing. I was at my in-laws house in between the breakfast room and the kitchen when the phone rang. Remember that clearly because such a sort of you know we bought a house. Then you know what i mean like. It was different anyway. That story really felt like the start of something robs a beautiful stole. I'd just talked to him yesterday. I show yesterday and he was the person who for the short lived life span that there was a marty smith's america television program. He was the reason he just liked the brand of tv that my team and i were making in that moment and said i want more of this. Go get every interview subject you can find. And let's do it. And i'm forever indebted damn and that all the time now he's a really good guy and is also really smart and i mean you don't. I'm like i'm just enough scared of rob. Not the he's the real big for those listening. Who may not know. Obviously he's he's an executive at espn and he is to rights point and extremely brilliant man with foresight so much so far beyond my feeble mind and when he i mean look these are two countries that are talking about life and he gave us both a life. now that is for sure But that's a little far. Let's not rob's heads big enough the But now it's funny. I mean he he very much. There are a lot of people who think that way. Not that way about johnny walsh. I don't know if you sort of where. Dsp before he. But like i still. I talked to. John eighty other day. If i miss a call. I'll get a text. And he's like it's an emergency and call him and he'll be like if you read this book not an emergency jonah. Emergency feel like all. Those guys are down in florida. All those retired espn executives in naples. Like someone needs to do a story that's like. Espn golden girls. Except it's walsh. And vince doria and odin hammer and steve anderson all dudes down there in my head all they do is sit around and have coffee and critique the job that the current executives are doing. Wouldn't you know i'd be fishing me too. That'd be good. Love your problem your problem. Have you read. There's a there's a book by a the money. Burke called lord of the fly. If you seen nap yes. I have yes. I loved that book. I just read that over a christmas break and it makes me want to learn how to tarpon fish which i've never done not ready yet Plants hope it's really good but it makes me wanna learn how to tarpon fish. These guys are like these guys. Fly fishing for tarpon. I mean that's crazy. Youtube videos are nuts. I mean those things hit that line. A submarine headed anyway a total ten. Oh it's exactly that. I mean it's just like you talked about like you don't know what you're doing it'll take your finger off. What reporting toes fascinated you. I'm really fascinated by michael jordan. Still you know. I think from one more jordan story to write. I want to wait a little while. Michael is i want to go fishing. Speak guillaume michael loves deep-sea fish. You say they won that marlin tournament more north carolina. Nicest i've ever seen. He has this really. It's so in the you know the name of it. What was it like twenty three years. Great catch twenty three. Yeah catch twenty three. That's brilliant brilliant man. Yeah it's like three levels and that's him came up with that. The the first time. I saw that i started calling around. People know mike. I got to know who named the boat. And they're like honestly michael dude But you know it's interesting it's gonna be interesting to see what a. I wonder what tom brady is going to do when he retires. A keeps talking about wanting to play the forty fives. And you know that feels. I mean just from the outside like he's avoiding something. I mean the reckoning comes for everybody you know and you have to figure out how to make peace with the fact that you used to be michael jordan or you used to be. Tom brady You know dale jr in like from afar. I know he's your friend. You probably have a bunch of insight into this. He's always just seemed basically happy in a way that a lot of people aren't and i imagine some of that is the lessons from watching his dad. He's just been in it. He knows what's real. And what isn't you shaking your head not happy. I think he's happy. Now i think he's so full of joy and fulfillment now. But i don't think he was until amy came into his life. I think when his wife can his life it tore down walls that he had built around himself that were impenetrable in so many ways because he did not want to feel hurt again so he would not take chances. Yeah he would not fully live. And then amy came into his life and those walls came down and now he's this open heart that It's just beautiful to watch. I mean look man. He's been a friend of mine. Since nineteen ninety eight and the junior that i knew for the first.

I know you grew up in north mississippi. Go to missouri all that stuff but how did it all unfold. I went to missouri. I I got a job right out of college. I was an intern to new orleans. Times picayune and The schwarzer. Got him steve raka who If you wanna funny sidetrack. Just google steve. Rakai add new orleans times-picayune He went down in flames but he hired me in. That mealy got fired and i was like well. I got to work really hard lsu writer and. i covered nick statement for thirteen months and then I got this job. That i've probably had no business having The kansas city star being the i mean essentially job. I have now was the job i started doing in two thousand to accept that you know we did it. We did it a lot faster and a lot lower level. I mean it was interesting to me when i started working with jay glove and giral stories. I've done i thought were really good. I just realized how you. And i got the spn. I realized there was another gear. That not only did i. Not ha- i didn't even really know where it was. And so the look of landing here and then immediately being hooked up jay. Levinger who edited acts. Dome gary smith and you know Hundred thompson and david halberstam and landing with someone like that was random and completely lucky. There is a moment when everything changed for me. I certainly when i met him. And just a way of thinking about stories and talking about stories was different He it was invaluable to me to work with someone who was success. One up that he didn't really care about espn or if anything went well. He didn't hear what the traffic was. He didn't he didn't care. What any buses above one editor. What their priorities were. What the org chart. While he just didn't give he really didn't and so he was always like yeah. You just do the things you're interested in and i'll cover you with everybody else. And so not only was he a brilliant editor but is just you know that that made me feel totally protected and like i could. Just go try stuff. I mean we wrote we get crazy stuff you know and so you know. I did that job in kansas city. Where did i wrote a sunday. Sort of magazine style story. He would call newspaper term. Which i i love. Newspaper went and go so newspaper lingo. For these stories people now would call long. Form is a takeout and the the newspaper here but the opening pages at the center of newspaper. So it's like a double broadsheet at the very center. That is called the double truck. I just love the like newspapers. Really good lingo Anyway i wrote a sort of a takeout every sunday for. I don't know four or five years for kansas city star and then got the spn And was lucky enough to land in j. governors laugh. Yeah he died last year in itself. Is it you know it's it's it's a tremendous loss for everybody. You know that that's what we're really started with jay. Sort of Basically saying yes she for an enormous company but you need to be on some sort of very personal quest That all of these stories or pieces of the quest is clearly articulated in your own. Mind you don't have to tell anyone else about it that you know so that every one of these things leads to something else. And you're constantly improving. Its one long conversation so that whole idea and way of doing it flowed absolutely from him. When did you realize you've found the next year. The first big story i wrote for. Espn was on dale. Jr. he wrote a helicopter around new york city because we had to fly. He's doing the daily show and And he had some budweiser of van out on long island. Do you remember who can't we that. Was you that would laud wiser distributorship so were so we met you there. The on the way there we needed to stop to eight so the guy who was the vp of marketing for the budweiser distributorship was like i know this. Little italian place and we walked in and the only other table was a engagement party for two insane nascar fans. We're at this little neighborhood restaurant in long island in its empty there's long table and they're toasting and giving speeches and an walks her junior and it's like it was like a saturday night live skit. The look on their faces were like and he was actually really nice. He gave them a phone number. Someone to call to get pit passes for the race as a wedding present and like but we walked in and he got made immediately. And i was just like oh this i don't want he was really really really kind generous with it. Which is the only thing. I really remember about that day because it was i well. That's that's nice. But i liked that story but that story felt like just a little bit evolved from the newspaper stories. I did a thing about a basketball player. Who went to brazil and disappeared. His name was tony harris and You know. I still get christmas cards from his And you know she got clawson. They couldn't figure out if you've been murdered or if he'd committed suicide and so i went down there with that is the question and she gave me tremendous access to instant messenger. Records and e mails and credit card statements. And so i really had headed his room service. Bill from his last hotel unleash so i really had the first time insight into what was going on inside someone you know. It was really in that story. I feel like that was the first story. Estimate is i mean i. I wrote that when rarely quickly but it was also It was. I think it was just something different than the other. Ones remember. rodney king. You know rod today rob way back and i remember. That story ran and a phone rings endings. You know it's an eight six. Oh and that's never good. You know. I mean i looked at my phone says eight six. Oh and you're not programmed in my phone. Cutting this is not gonna be good one hundred percent eight six. Oh seven six six. I started checking. And so yeah. I don't want any part of this robbers like i read this story. It's unbelievable told your contracts..

Our fix of sports who wanted to get close to the super bowl wanted to get close to sports and we can't use. Espn people to do it anymore. So nick right is the guy we have gone to. And i've long been in admire of his work. He got into the game pretty young. He's been very good at this. He's funny in that he's very self aware and he is introspective. He understands his journey is super interesting. How it is that. He got where it is that he got but one of the reasons that i wanted to talk to him. And i hope i'm not betraying. Any intimacies is because he has been trying to be the king of this game for a long time. It's important to him to be the guy. Who is the mightiest of all the takers. It's so important to him. Mike that i have come to realize that he is very happy. This is through sources. I will not betray any of the confidences that gave me this information. I don't think he'll even find it to be much of betrayal. That nick right is happy. That bomani jones is now in his forties. Because now nick right feels. He's got his rightful claim to be the greatest of the takers under forty said mic right. Feels like he is now somebody who has his own decade in terms of being a sports opinion guy. Now that bomani jones has moved on to the old man taker of being in his forties. So i wanted to talk to him about his story. And we'll talk about it honestly and then you will make your own determination about whether he is the best taker in the business under the age of forty in sports nick. What do you regard as the most interesting parts of your story journey being the first person on the lebron james is the goat corner. I think that defines me as a person as a man as a take artists I think i think my family. I think because it's the family that i grew up with meaning like my mom. Dad and sister zaveri interesting. You know unit and in the family. I now my wife and our three kids. I think i think that tells you the story of how i became me for those who don't know. Then what are the parts that you would regard as landmarks. Well so for me. Like is a kid. My mom from the northeast bastard. Johns hopkins to harvard. My dad barely graduated high school really rough upbringing kansas city. And you might not like me saying this borderline criminal and then ended up catching on fire department. Fire department strikes. They look for the union leader. Union leaders not around. My dad says i'm the leader..

That is very sad So she so orville outlived her as well. You hadn't realized that well he kept Like you said tinkering kind of in retirement as a as a as a consummate inventor for the rest of his life and he actually died. really suffered a heart attack while fixing a doorbell and then died three days. Later narrowly super alone didn't realize that that was a real bummer ending. That hadn't anticipated chuck. It's a double bummer. I thought we were going to end it. Kind of like Him say him. Being like i invented to the end. And then you know the the Susa band starts playing. I got mad at my sister because she found love. And i never did. Yeah or he did find love and it was his brother who died years before. Yeah perhaps so That's for the wright brothers evil knievel got a two parter in the wright brothers. Didn't well he broke more bonds. We're never gonna live that. Nope i'm never going to let us live that You got anything else. Nothing did i say that already. Maybe okay either way.

"There was a guy. A frenchman named farman who is the first to fly a powered plane and a one kilometer close circle. This is nineteen. Oh wait it bears mentioning that. The wright brothers who again. They're total outsiders. No one's listening to them. Three years previous to this they had stopped the experimental stage. They had reached the point where they had produced a reliable plane and by nineteen o five three years before this french pilot did that one kilometer close circle flight. That just knocked the socks off of the french They had done a twenty four and a half mile circle in thirty nine minutes. The wright brothers had three years before this and so imagine accomplishing this and then seeing people doing like like preschooler stuff compared to what you're doing getting all this praise inattention impress lavished on them. And no one's listening to you. This is the situation that the wright brothers found themselves in at the time. Okay so wilbur has had enough. He goes to france in one thousand nine hundred on august eighth in you know what. I'm gonna go demonstrate this thing. I'm going to show them that. Flying straight is stupid. And i'm going to show them that we can actually make this thing. Turn and do whatever we want. and so. He went to a little small racetrack outside of lemons and Got on the ground and said gentlemen i to fly and they all spoke french. And they're like oh wait. He said he said something. Think he's about to do something big so he he flew and if the french were like sucked babu at that one flight they were really knocked out at this one They all realize that what was going on in front of their eyeballs with something that the french had never accomplished that no one had ever accomplished before. And they were basically done and There was a frenchman supposedly. That was there That was quoted in the newspapers by saying nusamba to We are beaten. Yeah so i mean. Imagine being like french at the time and seeing like you know somebody in a hang hang glider with a bicycle gear on it and being like people are flying people are flying and then somebody shows up in like a piper cub is like watch. Yes that was kind of the level of knock your socks off that that the french saw And that was it like from that point on. The wright brothers were overnight since sensation. They were the first superstars of the twentieth century for being the first to fly and they finally surge get their claim. So yeah these guys are superstars. Catherine is actually If you remember we haven't talked about her in a bit. She's actually superstar too because she goes with him. She learns french. For the express purpose of helping the brothers out while they go on an eventual european tour She negotiates a deal with these guys. You know. Get the sense that neither one of them were businessmen and they really sort of had their head in the invention game and so catherine was really key for initially managing that bike shop and then helping them out with their journaling and data keeping and then She the one that actually negotiated with army because Yeah the army said. Hey we'll give you guys some money we'll give you twenty. Five thousand dollars is a grant but you gotta be able to fly a pilot and a passenger and presumably you know a couple of palms or something in a gun. Maybe sure would be my guess at the very least a guy with a rifle died. Yes so was this. Before or after Tragic game of hide. And seek with catherine. And charlie taylor where he hid in and got locked in and suffocated to death. That you referenced earlier. I don't know..

I think you should read this quote. Whatever whatever accent you want to read.

Well i will tell you my story and you shall be the judge so those pretty good. I mean if for no accent whatsoever. I thought your time actual article so Yeah they they still didn't get any kind of attention from that but it is a pretty great little footnote to the whole thing that that was the first article that was written on them. Yeah cleanings and be culture. They even wrote the war department and said hey we invented an airplane Do you want to buy it. And they said nah. Yeah one of the reasons why was because the war department was like well. Can you send us a specifications. The right partner like no. Yeah we invented this. You give us a contract first. And then we'll give you the specifications and the war department said now even worse than the fact that they weren't getting any kind of credit further accomplishment in no takers on Selling their their design was that over in france. Remember we said that. Even the wright brothers thought that the french would be the first to powered flight. the french were convinced that they would be the first of the power fighting that they had cracked it. There were There's a brazilian balloonist theme burto santos dumont. I think they made a movie about him recently. A super colorful character right. I don't know i believe they did. He gave a demonstration and the right. Yeah i feel like they just call the dumont with exclamation point. Maybe but he. He flew a plane in paris. I believe of his own design And it just flew in a straight line no control but it was enough of the time because again no one was paying attention to the wright brothers. It was enough for the french to be like soccer blue. You know this is. This flight has been achieved in the the wright brothers like no. This doesn't know what we're doing is so much better than this nineteen eight..

"Row boat right on the lake. But sure coitus. I guess you'd have coitus in the in the road on the lake. We should just abandon this third. So charlie builds a grade classes by the way. I know we take all that out. Okay so charlie builds a four cylinder engine of Aluminum and no one had ever used aluminum before an aircraft construction. So this was an yet another thing that the wright brothers in Charlie taylor came up with that would Ended up revolutionizing aviation it became the backbone of aviation prize using this lightweight aluminum super strong super light and they connected the saying to the propeller using bicycle chains. Yeah and if they if they weren't showing off before they were by then because the engine they created they figured out. They needed a minimum of eight horsepower. In the engine they created was twelve horse power so have more than enough to to power. The propellers which would produce thrust which would actually create powered flight and those bike chains We're pretty ingenious too because there were To sets of gears one on each side going toward Each propeller and those bike chains connect the propeller to the engine but they to keep the propellers from shooting the i guess it would be yaw out the yin yang From creating a gyroscope with the two propellers go in the same way they they decided to have the propellers going the opposite direction. One another to make that happen. They just turned one of the bike chains into a figure eight. How ingenious is that. Yeah going in opposite ways kind of like. I don't know like you see on airplanes these days exactly so the wright brothers figured that out too so no suddenly put all the stuff together. They put together some controls because remember controls. Were like one of the big That was one of the big challenges they figured. Out a whole set of controls that controlled the rudder that controlled these elevators in the front of the airplane that kept the nose from diving or lifting too much And then they had the The lever that that Warp the wing. One way or another to let you bank so they could control pitch roll and yaw on a engine.

"So. The brothers have a bike shop. Catherine's running the thing they're tinkering around in there. The world you know previous to this bike shop opening in eighteen ninety two like you said there were electric. Trolleys going around. And karl benz had built the first like real good automobile and these guys were like their bike shop. It was doing great. But wilbur was like you know what i see. What's going on in france. And i think that we can do this. Brother like who cares that. We're not college educated. Who cares that. I didn't even finish high school. And who cares that. We're just bike shop owners in dayton. I think we can. We can invent powered airplane. They even call him airplanes at the time of powered flyer and so he wrote to the smithsonian institution in dc and said should read this katherine hepburn said. I believe that simple flight is at least as possible demand. I am an enthusiast. But not a crank. I wished avail myself of all that is already known and then if possible add my bit you owe poop agree truman capote it. Was anything else probably never happen again. I think there's one more quote that should be. Sammy davis junior. Do the third quotas. Truman capote then just keep like that. All right so The long and short of it is the secretary of the smithsonian. A man named samuel langley. Got this letter. He was a man who is receiving a lot of government grants to work on powered flight. Yeah it was huge at. Everybody was working on it. At the everyone was failing at it. He had something called the era dome. Which by the time. The wright brothers got cranking up head already failed yeah Luckily he wasn't a one of those egotistical guys who controls the purse strings. He said all right. Well you know if you need some information. Yeah here's a bunch of information and he sent him every the had yeah He sent him like a basically a reading list and a bunch of Journals that they should subscribe to and start investigating And really kind of help them get along their way This is also a time..

"Toss our hat into the ring and see if we can be the ones to figure this out just because they were self taught and they were outsiders as far as the scientific community was concerned. Yeah and dave Dave ruse helped us. Put this together and dave Is very keen to point out that like they were outsiders. They weren't trained engineers. But they were far more than guys that just tinker it in a bike shop They did do that. But they vary much They didn't stumble upon this thing. They very much were very data driven very rigorous in their experimentation and. It's no surprise that they were the first They they may be unlikely but not surprising if that makes sense so even at the time The idea was. It would probably probably be the french. Who are the ones that figured out human fight and even the wright brothers apparently thought this but it was still open enough that they decided that that they they they could give it a shot and they also saw a lot of parallels you know they're very famous as we said for owning a bike shop. That was what their their trade was in dayton ohio but they saw a lotta parallels between bicycling and flight like for example Bicycling requires a lot of balance. You have to figure the same thing out when you're flying You have to build a machine in the most lightweight lightweight way possible That can also convey a human being Aerodynamics factor into it so they had a bit of a head start. they weren't coming. It's not like there's nothing in the bicycling world that has anything to do with this. Especially if you're an engineer and thinking about things like aero-dynamics as far as bicycling bicycling is concerned you can translate that to to flight and that's what the right brotherston. Yeah i mean a plane is just a bike with wings right basically or at least early ones kind of work dad. Kite in a bank. My dad's always said that junior anyone ever asked you. What's the difference between a bike of plane. Is you tell them nothing. Pops ginseng and go all right. So the wright brothers of course wilbur and orville..

Frankly is I think crew out of our wind tunnel episode and my correct and presuming that I don't know i don't remember. I know i think just on a last. Okay whatever sorry. I will say this and i know i say this for a lot of episodes like why haven't they made a movie but it is astounding to me that there has not been a big sweeping three hour biopic about the wright brothers. It's it's really weird but we still saying biopic. That's what i say. that's fine. You say bio mic right. Yeah it just makes sense to me but So i i agree wholeheartedly. One of the things that that struck me as well. I was reading some research on this. Is that at one point. These guys like into test flight got up like six hundred feet in the air. And i was thinking i want to see what that looked like. Yeah because these are the first people some of the first people flying and they're suddenly six hundred feet up in the air in and this is in a glider this before it was powered flight so they were really at the at the mercy of the wind right then and all that it was one of the most terrifying things they've ever that's ever happened to them and i thought that would be really something to see. That's just of many amazing things that the wright brothers did they were. They were amazing human beings. Yeah i mean the story has thrills. It has Chill it has thrills and chills. It's obviously something that changed the course of humanity there. Are these like very movie. Like aha moments. That happened along the way. It's two guys that were not trained. Engineers they were self taught brilliant men who figure this out but they they didn't go to school to learn it so i don't know it's got all the right elements i think did find a twenty nine minutes short film from twenty twelve..

"They don't is is truly. I've read it before when it's going gonna cost too much money. It's too dangerous for them to waste that much money but it is a fascinating world and it is a world you know like with anything. They're a good friend of mine. Jessica she is a stunt woman and she often posts photos with the actor that she's portraying when they have them doubled up and We as social media has become the giant that it is we see so much more behind the scene stuff than we ever have four and that also adds to it is that you're getting to know a stuntwoman which we have case. Yeah people say that you know obviously the studios especially in the studio system when they had certain actors under under their brand. They tried to perpetuate that idea that the actors were doing all the stunts and people say that steve mcqueen was the first one to break break rank and reveal that he had a stunt man doing most of his stunts in most of his driving and then james garner followed him to admit it so so there was sort of a breaking ranks awareness and then of course they made the movie hooper and hal needham started directing so there was sort of an era when people were aware of stunt performers and then they've kind of gone into the background again and you're right they the the women's side of it has been shown even less so it was. It was cool to make this film. And you also deal with the the racial aspect of this that That in addition to women fighting for their niche their place in the pecking order here. So two black women wanted to become stumped. Women had to fight not just prejudice. But not just racial prejudice. But you know sexist prejudice and al the prejudices in one own an old patterns. Yes yeah and. I don't think i don't think any even today these things happen. Sometimes they happen in general in the entertainment business. And i don't believe people intentionally want to keep women down people of color down. It really is just systems that have accrued over time and it becomes you know this is the way we've always done it in people. Make the same choices than what really needs to change is giving women and people of color are more opportunities early so that they get more experience than they build their resumes in whatever aspect of the industry there in so that when those big opportunities come up to direct a bigger film or to do a bigger son they have the you know the resume to do it in. You're not like oh we've got to have this guy do it. Because he's got all the credits so it does start a little bit earlier night. I know there's a tremendous amount of awareness. Now that people are thinking of these things in how to how to make it more equitable as it should be and you. You couldn't have picked a better on camera and off camera hosts she narrates so as well as appearing Michelle rodriguez that's it. It's just a another another perfect match. Because i i saw her as a lot of people did it in the movie girl fight and most people know her man. That was an indie fill. It didn't get the kind of wide release that the fast and furious. Movies kassala wing. It definitely it as you say was in. It was one hell of an introduction to this person and she's really maintained that kind of a. I don't know how to describe it. That bad has sort of been something that has stuck with her in every performance that she's tough part of it is her bill..

"Kevin I'm not GonNa ask you this question. Because I, I don't even want to know what your answer is honest with you but but. This guy's a prick. Prick probably since high school no doubt he is still and he may be a rainbow. Frick. But he's A. That wait a minute. We have a new label. We have a new label Tommy just. A Rainbow Perec that's pretty funny. Hey don't forget. He also hired the first ever black female coach right they hired a black female assistant coach. Know I I absolutely fine. That's great. You know. But by the way I love saying Frick. because. We're not on the radio and and my favorite one of my favorites. Yours Carla thing is when he talks about different words is remember you can prick your finger but don't finger your trick. Do. You know that Eric Yesterday in and describing Patrick Mahomes. used the he kept calling he called him three times in a zoom conference call Eric enemy the offensive coordinator for Andy Reid in Kansas. City, who was a head coaching candidate in this last off season Eric be enemy referred to Patrick mahomes multiple. Times as a competitive pick. It was it was It was a great description of a he's essentially saying he's so competitive that he's an asshole it, which is by the way the exactly the way Michael Jordan was described. You know maybe not being you but you know as competitive asshole and he said that about in a very complimentary way about Patrick Mahomes multiple times in his conference call yesterday. anyway you know you know who's not afraid to. We'll get to him in a moment. I. Just wanted the power struggle question. I don't. The power struggle will be won by the owner of the team whomever that is an in the moment, and if it's Dan Snyder if we get into. If they're foreign, twelve, five and eleven three and. And the stadium when fans are allowed back in is a third full mostly with opponents fans, and there's no stadium opportunity downtown and the name thing turns into a disaster. Well, they're all gone. They're all gone. Yeah probably. But I would like to see once and for all wow, the owner would handle. Competently run business, and football operation. To See if he could not put his hands or get his hands mixed into it like. Know when Opportunity before, well, the Marty Schottenheimer things the best example that Arrow was pointed straight up straight up. We and they had opportunities to do teething done it before. Yes. In you know obviously, as the owner, he could've gotten in the middle of the Bruce Allin Kirk cousins thing ended that and said, what are you kidding me? We haven't had one of these in forever and you're gonNA keep franchising him. Pay is son of a bitch already. But. Yeah I mean gibbs retired for family reasons, etc. The ZORN's thing was a disaster. The SHANAHAN thing ended in disaster. He obviously got in the middle of that with our g three. And the SCHOTTENHEIMER thing with Fred Dresner being one of the minority owners and hating Marty he he got he wouldn't that thing was headed in the right direction. There is no doubt to me. It's the single worst decisions made since he's been the owner the single worst because if he just left Mardi to his own Mardi would've built a winner here over a decade and I have no idea whether or not. They would have won a super bowl but they would have been a competent up consistent winter you know ten plus eleven plus. Games playoffs, division champions and he wasn't having any fun as he told people back then. So if Rivera, and Rivera does his part on the football side and Jason Right which by the way we'll make Jason Rights job much easier if they have a winning team to sell not just to to to fans but to businesses and sponsors and sweet purchasers and leasers and local politicians for new stadium all of that stuff will be much easier for on Rivera does his job the key will be consider sit back and just let it happen the. Answer to that is a big. No. It's a big I don't know for me I hope that he wouldn't get in the middle of that and fuck it up but. The odds probably favored that he would. and that he might even get involved too early before they even have a chance to do something I. Am I'm a Ron Rivera Fan. I'm optimistic about Ron Rivera I'm optimistic about parts of the roster I'm optimistic about Jason Right as much as I can be without him having an NFL resume But with the resume he has and with the references that he comes with and I'm not I'm not optimistic about the owner. That's my position. Okay. what else before we get Alex Smith? That's it. That's okay. Let's get to Omni. Let me make it clear. I think it's a great higher. I think it's a huge win for the organization and it keeps everybody from paying attention. To all the muck in the mired in the background. Agree Let me tell you about my bookie. Because now we've got legitimate games. Okay. We've had some regular season games we were in the midst of the NHL Playoffs and now the NBA playoffs have begun.

"No. But I'm not as inciteful as as as you are So I think you're right I. Think it is look I think you've gotta read t leave into everything at this point, and if Tanya is more prominent in the language of personnel of a major personnel decision like this, then you have to assume she's got. As more of a voice. than than she had in the past or at least they're more willing to put that forward anybody. But Dan Snyder I think at this point people are happy with. So What's the dynamic when when there's a power struggle? I mean, because two giant ready. He's a honeymoon period. Look I'm always I this guy, this guy may be smartest. Guy In, every room he walks in. But my money is always on the are of self-destruction. Okay, and will remain. So until it's proven that or no longer exists. So if there is a power struggle, how does it line up? I mean because lots of Amina he came in with a bunch of underlings with him who were his guys. But it was always to on one against law for me. It was bruce and it was snyder. Who Hire lots of Again, against, Lav Amina. So he was fighting a losing battle. Now you know maybe this guy maybe you know maybe it's Ron and this guy. Maybe, they align themselves together and it's enough to hold off dance nighter. 'CAUSE I. don't care what they say if he's not involved in football operations, he's GonNa be involved in football two sessions because the football decision affect the business. Riley off of Meena one of the reasons he he he got out when he did was because the Reuben foster hiring groups foster signing for or them on the marketing side was a straw broke the camel's back. So so you're going to have football and business, and there's going to be times when they interact. And this guy's football background will certainly help him doing that. So I'M GONNA assume that says this guy seems to be very smart and very personable. that if there is a power struggle. Each going to align himself with Ron. Okay not can I can I circle back to that in a moment? Please because well, because I want to get a couple of things out to maybe To maybe make you think a little bit differently about your position about this power struggle that you're not describing his imminent, but you're describing as certain. Okay so I wanna read from less carpenter story in the post here just two paragraphs. Quote He's quoting someone a person familiar with the team's decision making in recent years speaking on the condition of anonymity to provide a frank assessment quote. I don't know who's making these moves, but it isn't the old Dan crowd The person was referring not only to rights higher but the addition last month of Julie Donaldson the first woman to have a fulltime role for an NFL teams Game Day radio broadcast who was also named the team senior vice. President for media. Fresh quote continuing fresh blood with fresh thinking kind of refreshing. Actually maybe this is a signal that they are really going to operate differently. Then this next paragraph right said he was not looking to leave. Mackenzie. But became intrigued he was connected with Snyder and Snyder's wife Tanya within the last few weeks that lead to a meeting and conversations with not only the Snyder's but also Rivera whom several of Wright's former. Teammates and his football agent no well through these conversations, right? Rivera. And this Snyder's came up with a power structure that will have right and Rivera reporting to ownership. But will also be what Wright called a three headed leadership construct where we together or shaping a new culture. He added that he believes the Snyder's are committed to changing what many have described as toxic atmosphere around the franchise now when I mention. Carpet, what? WHO CREATED THE TOXIC ATMOSPHERE? well, understand that that's that's obvious. Okay. I'm not. I'm not going to dispute you on this but bear with me here for a moment. I believe Tanya had a lot to do with Julie Donaldson's hiring I. Don't know that for a fact I've been told a couple of times that there was a relationship there with with. A real respect for Julie and I'm just I just read this okay. Sort of with you for the first time. And it came off of me ten minutes ago suggesting that maybe the power structure is changing in that the Snyder's plural. Are, now, running the organization that he is in his including his wife now in many more of these decisions and by the way Tommy from what I've been told first of all smart and much more compassion than the owner and a lot less arrogance than the owner just tell me if you think it'd be something here. No you don't really know the owner will eventually. Talking about eventually I'm talking about right now. Right, now, of course, they haven't played any football I'm GONNA get to that in a moment. Do you think Tanya did the interview? Nobody asked in in the interviews that I listened to and I'm going to have him on next week I. Think when I'm back on radio I don't think anybody asked if he ever interviewed with Snyder face to face I'm curious as to whether or not Tanya was intimately involved in the interview process he says he was connected with both why Fairy tale the NFL..
