You're seeing these kids born with down's syndrome and you know how not just. In thailand mo- societies are not receptive to people. Who are atypical. Right and you're you're filming all this. You're you're experiencing all this as a typical person as an able bodied person. And now you find yourself more in the if you will atypical category with disabilities. How has that informed your understanding of what people who deal with this their whole life like you went from one to the other other people. That's all they know and will ever know. Oh that's awesome question. I was hoping you ass kicked out. That's something i've been wanting to share. Yeah one thing that's really really interesting. Is two month after film that i found myself doing the same physical therapy activities that the the children were doing. Basically the visual and bring vigil connection that coordination with caller itself and stretching exercises and the wanting a gwen took wick takeaway for me psych. 'cause one of the missionaries. She herself was struggling with a little bit of symptom of dementia. Don't want to be too specific.

"Now the aspirin okay. So you didn't know that that was one of the consequences of taking those pills. Yeah and another two possibility. One house topa. My speech therapist latte high altitude. Traveling is the number in coast of stroke. What really yeah now. Is there history of stroke in your family. Noam the first one so. There's nothing for you to know ahead of time to take precaution. If you would have known that you were a potential risk of having a stroke. Would you have not gone on the trip to chiang mai or that's the million dollar question everyday but no regrets. I'm still very happy with another. Another interesting thing is after kim. Back having a stroke to issue a bloodwork. They found trace a mess in my blood really. So my wife's right away was taken into the surgeons office for questioning. Okay now obviously. I don't know you to be someone who smokes crystal meth. Maybe monica no by mean so did they ever determine why the restraint of methane your blood think one possibility is a my way to the er. They had to take your sample. They probably mixed up on the urine. Sample you're no mixed me up with the people but there's this social little known fact that there are a lot of people in thailand. There were like on purpose poison tourists with crystal meth so that they can be knocked out in to end up being robbed. Goodness i would think that you were in the company of those missionaries the whole time. You're there so it's not like they're going to let someone not like they can watch every second of your time with them. But i mean that's another possibility. I'm just offering little interesting factoid. So let's get back to you. Basically had this blood vessel in your brain burst and now time is critical. What happens next will open to me was. After i was taken to the hospital i was in me and monica. My wife was immediately reprimanded by the nurse because it took us eight hours from the morning. When i call monica because she was a schoolteaching she was able to come home right away. Win it out eight hours before i was taken to. The hospital does too long for the brain to be sort of oxygen sugar shirt mean. You didn't know you're having a stroke stale. When when you were able to get a hold of monica did you or not say better. Because i think i had a stroke or you just said. Something's wrong something. I had no idea. I don't know what stroke is like annoyed. I was night kidded. About i think would be a lot of us. So did you say it'd be nice if you can come home now but if you can't i understand al managed something like that is more like i feel funny. I think i need to go to the hospital. Because prior to a lot has few experiences scored hospital because gout. Okay i remember that. Yeah okay so you took eight hours from the time. The stroke happened to the time when you actually were in the hospital. I got asked this obvious question. So are they saying if you would have gotten their four hours later. Instead of eight hours or one hour later that the damage would would not have been as great. It wouldn't be a severe. The first thing that was taken to the yard. They took me to the surgery. Reddaway to put a stint in might bring to make sure the blood vessel doesn't keep lapsing this blow enough blood flow. The sting was installed by two to the coordinator area. All the way up really and that's pretty typical. I don't know it's like the movie inner space. And i think also read after the surgery. Another stroke happened after the stem was installed on my guy. So was this a different vessel. That bursts is in the same general area and it became dangerous so had to be sent to get the surgery the next morning because the pressuring under my skull was building. What did they do to relieve the pressure. Eases your brainer. So it's a surgery. Called craniotomy basically opened up the skull and release the pressure and the skull was kipling my undermine the photo my stomach for about two months. Oh i remember hearing about that so that to keep the bone alive yet to keep a nourished what happened after that with able to release you from hospital. I would think not no. I was still wake for about two months Unsure you've talked with monica and your kids about those two months like how are they managing. How are they handling all of this. That's the difficult part. They were managing their just first of all. Monaco was shocked. She didn't know she had no idea. That's what happened. And also she had no idea if i was able to wake up. So for two-month. Monica was by my side. I see you my son. Kyle took it pretty hard contributed to his. Depression was killed in Let me see. He was sixteen and my daughter was in the dark. She was left home alone for about two months so she neglected sure she two years younger than kyle. Yes suits sears. Yeah so. I think that's part of the consequence of someone having a stroke as you don't necessarily hear about the the impact on the family members especially if you have children and you think ok young children. That's one thing but you had a preteen and a teenager or actually two teenagers. I mean that's a very formative time in their life. Already as you think about those time when you are in this kind of inbetween space between life and death you know the limited space who. What do you wish you could have said to. Your family was if i knew then what i know now. I would tell them to take care of themselves. Wanting you said important visiting me is that they need to deal with.

When you went over there with the team within pastor sharon and they'd never had anyone document with video of the work that they were doing out in the bush but also in the the the kashasa in the city with the women at risk. Right yeah one of the most memorable shots that you took that. I think they were astounded. By was in you use your drone technique and you had the team going down that that big river in the congo and the jungle but you have to aerial view. That was amazing. That's fun yeah so you had just completed a trip. To thailand i think it was with international ministries doing similar work capturing for promotional purposes. The work of these missionaries and and they're doing a lot of social justice work. How would you feel about that well. That's very interesting. As i was in my filming to work of missionary kimbro.

"In extremely talented artist and graphic designer videography over and documentary film director. I met toby win. He joined the church that i was pastoring. Many many years ago. I was honored to perform his wedding to monica and i helped. Welcome their two kids into the faith village after they were each born. Not long after. I retired in two thousand seventeen from leading that church. I was stunned to hear that he had suffered a massive stroke and was in a coma fighting for his life. Fortunately he did emerge from that coma and we've stayed in touch through facebook and through this podcast. So when i invited him to come on this show to talk about his crisis and how he's been coping with it. He was gracious enough to agree. I think you'll be amazed at how straightforward toby is when talking about his injury and the impact it continues to have on him on his marriage their children and even on his faith in god. I think you're really going to be moved. And i think you're going to be educated as well. So thank you advance to toby for being so generous with your life one to announce that starting this year twenty twenty one. I have started a patron account. And so that's a way for those of you who want to be partners with me in putting this podcast sports every week and This is Heading towards our seventh anniversary. So it's been a while up till now we've just really kind of asked people to make donations and a few people have and we thank them so very much because their generosity has helped defray some of the expensive of putting this show on but i was encouraged by another friend who became a friend because he's listener to start a patriot account and so it's not a fancy one. There's not different levels. It's basically an opportunity for you to pledge any amount starting with the dollar to donate per month to help keep this show running and we've got some things that Do cost money more than the money. We appreciate knowing that there are people out there who value enough what. I'm doing to become a monthly partner so go to patriotdepot dot com look for asian. American can find podcast. And you'll find how to do this. January six twenty twenty. One is now the date in american history that will live in infamy the first one being december seventh nineteen forty one. Because this is when our nation's capital was invaded by it looks like Mostly white people mostly men and most of those men wearing beards and mega year who marched towards the capital following. Trump's rally where he kept repeating the same lie that his presidential victory for a second term stolen from him by all kinds of dark forces and as we watched all this as the world watched this unbelievable thing happening. I mean i have to tell you. I wasn't really surprised. Trump has been beating this drum and stoking this fire amongst the most kind of rabbit of his base for some time now. But it's still. It was a shock to my system. And i'm sure it was to yours to actually see americans fell Just rushing the capitol police and pushing through their barricades. And i mean being in one of the chambers and that one guy sitting in speaker of the house. Nancy pelosi sitting in her chair with her desk incredibly disturbing. I'll tell you one of the things that has really become true for me is now i see the american flag not as a symbol of our entire country with everybody in it I feel like the american flag has become symbol of white supremacy. And that's really sad. 'cause it's not meant to be at least i didn't grow up thinking that but i'm starting to have second thoughts and during the you know i think both of trump's campaigns especially the second one as i be going around public especially when i'm writing kind of further east on my bike and i would see this jacked up pick up truck or jeep going by with a huge trump banner and a huge american flag. I never felt like wow. That's a symbol that they're waving because they're including everybody me and lgbtq people and immigrants. Like no i. It started to feel like a giant white middle finger and Seeing how many people were wearing the american flag waving the giant american flag in this invasion of the nation's capital while both the house of representatives and the senate were trying to certify or seat the certified electors from all fifty states. That was just kind of the last straw for me in being able to see beyond that the stars and stripes the the american flag. See beyond that. It's being waived as a symbol of white supremacy. And i i'm really hoping and working towards when president biden is inaugurated and you know the democrats are both in controlling the house and the senate. I just really hope that we can get to a place as a country were that symbol is not kind of kind of a stand in today for the confederate flag is just really really disturbing. Hey everyone i hope you're staying sane and safe. Let's let's all hope and pray together for a sane and civil and respectful inauguration.

Roblox Valued at $30 Billion
"Roadblocks raises five hundred and twenty million dollars led by ultimate or capital and dragonair investment group so They announced today that they raised their five hundred. Twenty million dollars in a series h a purchase price of forty five dollars per share. If you do the math and all that sort of stuff it values the company at twenty nine point. Five billion dollars. Let's call it thirty right. The i don't know why they priced it. So it's twenty nine point five thirty sound so much pathetic. Let's call it. Thirty billion dollar valuation House spot on where we kind of wish we could sort of You know splice in the conversation. We had honorable extra because not only. Did we say this would happen right. That they would do private round where they've announced that they're going to do a direct thing not an ipo. So this is essentially their ipo fundraise right. That's how it directly thing works you raise the money privately and then you avoid sort of the the raise you do. That's part of the ipo on there for you. Avoid the show you avoid having the price shares and things like that so the has now been priced. It's effectively an ipo. it's not publicly traded. Yet they're gonna do public listing but this is the financing and we called the valuation. Right now i think we said based on unity's valuation. I you know. I think we agree to was probably going to be in this thirty billion dollar bar ballpark and we have longer. It's insane how close they Called it. I'm also surprised at this point. They don't round it up like like i just weird like you could call it a thirty. It's twenty nine point five. You can bow out that up like what who thought that sounded better lake. Like what's half a billion dollars point by. We're joking around. But yeah. I mean this is humongous. It's humongous your particularly william the the quote from the ceo of one of the funds that invested. Because i think this is telling. And maybe you have some thoughts on this it listen to the subtleties in the language here. He says while once viewed as a gaming platform roadblocks has emerged as the definitive global community connecting millions of people through communication entertainment and commerce said. Brad gerstner ceo. Tim under if you didn't know better what would he be describing a social network right. Yes like you don't even have to wait. I was literally like an listening to you. I'm like this. Sounds like facebook like this and most social networks go through that branding period where they get past their initial audience. Right think of facebook. Facebook used to be just for college. Kids right am i mean literally it was supposed to be like this is common knowledge but be supposed to be like the facebook that you've got as a freshman to meet new people right like that's why it's called facebook And now it's now. And i'm sure at the time they were describing themselves as a great platform for college age students to discover each other and forge friendships. And it's the same thing here. They are talking about like they would have said previously were gaming. Now wear something. We've expanded where social platform and that's insane because it. This is first of all what i think. We said. We felt like i think should have done. Ns feels like messaging. That should have come from epic from. This is how they should have been describing fortnight. So it's very it's surprising to see it from rob blocks. it's refreshing because i'm glad somebody has this messaging. Somebody is looking at games as social networks and trying to turn a game into a social network which is really potential right. And i'll see this last like for longtime ever since. I wrote the harvard business school case or co wrote. I should say on world of warcraft. I felt games are social networks. I'm not alone. i mean pretty much. Everybody who's thought about it realizes they're pretty much the same thing Right but it's interesting. To see this. Crossover into an investment thesis with this much money behind. And i think given the success of this. It won't be long before we see other dame's and game companies realize their social networks. Still think it's gone too far right like i was. I'm i've been so pro. Roadblocks right called the valuation called. This move loved the big number here right. it's own good for the industry. There's there's really no downside to any of this right in fact now thirty billion dollars again in kind of the context we're talking in. The context of a social network is a pretty cheap social network. Right when you're talking about the facebook and the twitter like where you're talking valuations in the hundreds of billions This is a pretty cheap social network and so super cheap for the number of users. I'm sure it has in the monetization per user. I bet it's it's bargain-basement steel which is probably part of why they want to calm themselves again. Social networks but like. There's a question of does this go too far right. Where the investor says while once views viewed as a gaming platform as if the daming days are like ancient history when you walk into rox. You're not playing a game right now. Either to be fair. Like i think this is okay like i really think mrs okay. Because like it's fair to say that their social and commerce activity going on and that their primary drivers and i've always been kind of a believer that raw blocks was not and i don't disparage anything here. Blake pound for pound. It's not the best game out there right. I'm sure there are many young kids and fans. That would just be with me. But i think fundamentally the reason why it's been successful is a game is not that the underlying game or game mechanics itself for so incredible or so unique Was because it was a social and ecommerce platform hooked into a game and the game was fun to play because of the socialization features in the commerce hawks. So you don't think language goes too far. I don't think it does in this case. No no like. I and i'll put it this way like if fortnight were describing itself that way without some major changes. I'd say i appreciate the aspiration but that's reaching right now but it's really does have other hooks in it. You know it really does right. So i i mean it's death. Look it's definitely like definitely you know a vanguard language right like it's somebody trying to change perception of the business but as long as the strategy meets the attempt to change perception. I think it's good for them. You know what. Let me let me push this one step further because the article ends with you know. Typical of a press release about blacks about altimeter capital right. There's always like the about sections for the the companies mentioned in the press release. Right and roadblocks. Let me just read the first sentence again. It's like there's a question mark here is this to have we gone too far right and the and the sentence here is roadblocks mission is to build a human co experience platform that enables shared experiences among billions of users so no game gaming in that sense but experience twice human once shared once billions once. You know it's a lot of good word into a lot of good words. No i mean. Look i mean. Clearly clearly it will remain to be seen whether or not their messaging this way to get a great valuation or if they're messing this way because they generally believe the platform can grow into that mission right. I feel like borderline disingenuous in the messaging. I like i said i'm the biggest fan of roadblocks. I love what they're doing. I think they've achieved and probably will achieve what fortnight should have in terms of growing outside of being a game. It's just like when you don't even mention it at all. I would like. I would like somebody who say like most users download custom levels and it would be like reading. A tesla press release and the word car is not used or automobile. Like is why don't they read that way anyway. Toby start with. Tesla is the future of human transportation or something. But i actually really don't know. But i mean i agree but like i mean the end of the day like i'd rather i. I think it's great for gaming e sports. Because i know sometimes we got a little bit of criticized for doing gaming news on east but the reality is this is so core to what's happening in interact entertainment like we can't discuss this right so it's the first then. The second piece is like okay. So you know i get that flake i get. This might be reach. And i think probably internally they're going to say it's a reach but i again i appreciate the fact that the market is recognizing that games can be more than games right. The games can be a bridge into something and fundamentally what games are about like interactive worlds. Can be a lot more than just half life in street fighter. Rife and i think whether or not they execute this change so fully as to earn that mission. I think it's going to make it easier for the next business to message. We're gonna see more businesses messaging mess name as a result will see the games media mature into more

"Events down in Wilmington, with President elect Biden, saying that the most recent jobs report is dire. Mr Biden says there is no time to lose this. Millions of people lose their jobs or see their incomes slashed. He is calling on Congress to pass an economic stimulus bill now With even more funding later. What W spat Low covering the incoming president in Wilmington, Mr Biden says he knows people are skeptical when he says he can get bipartisan cooperation. But the $900 million aid package, which he hinted he'd had a hand in shows Congress can work together. Any package passed in the lame duck session is not gonna be enough overall is critical, but it's just a start. President elect said he'd be asking for funding for testing vaccines and economic relief to get the country through 2021 in response to questions, he said he didn't think the vaccine should be mandatory, but that the public would have confidence in it when they saw him and he said three ex presidents getting it. He said his 100 days of mask wearing wouldn't be mandatory, either just a patriotic request in his inaugural speech. Which he said would not look like past inaugurations.

As President-Elect Joe Biden Doubles Down On Calls For Unity, Supporters Have Doubts
"Calls for unity and healing. But as NPR's Toby a. Smith reports, many of his own supporters are having a hard time letting bygones be bygones. He's been saying it since his first speech as president elect, Biden implored everyone to put away the harsh rhetoric give each other a chance and end what he calls this grim era of demonization in America. So that's a wonderful sentiment. It's probably a really sweet pipe dream. Abby Gold 59 year old Democrat from Arizona thinks it may be generations before the rancor subsides enough for any real rapprochement. We're not gonna have any healing until the public at large words to have a nice cup of shut up before they say whatever is on their minds, hoping to help many around the nation are ramping up trainings for cross the aisle conversations. Julie Bowler is with a group called Braver Angels, which runs red blue workshops that aim for common ground and civil discourse. When you have the experience yourself of feeling a little opening a little less frantic rejection, Then you've learned at least that it is possible for some of that softening toe happen, and it's a humanizing process. Enrollment is way up this fall, but Bowler concedes it may be a self selecting crowd that's open to dialogue. There are plenty who would be hard to convince, including 64 year Old New Yorker, Darwin, Bush. When he sees bridging the gap with die hard trump supporters as a bridge too far. This is not an alternate viewpoint. This is racism, Hate lying demagoguery, sociopath, E. What else can I say? Bad people? Capital B. A. D. I will not sit in table with them. I will not have a conversation with them. Nor what Elizabeth and Tracy Murphy, an interracial couple in Georgia, who say they've been harassed, even spit at by people they believe were fueled by the president's divisive rhetoric. For any fence mending, Tracy Murphy says Trump supporters would have to straight up admit that they made a mistake and apologized. It's their turn to extend the olive branch. They're the ones who messed up everything. It's not my job to fix it. You know, is a funny thing that the person who was the victim always has the end of being the bigger person. But many on the right are just is adamant that they're the ones Odin apology by what they see as radical socialists threatening American values. Virginia Republican Katherine Schoonover says she's all for bipartisan cooperation. But she calls Democratic calls for unity. Disingenuous. I don't know how you go from telling everybody that they're all secret Nazi fascists, bigoted, racist people. And then you're going to say, But now let's come together. It's just ridiculous coming from the Democrats now and especially, she says sin. She believes the claims even though there's no evidence, backing them up that the Democrats stole the election. It's shocking, and I think that if if the Democrats try to ram this down of race throats, you have a real problem. It's exactly why Darryl Dwayne, a 51 year old Biden supporter from Washington, D. C has been echoing Biden's calls for unity and imploring his friends, too. Not dig in their heels. Unfortunately, that's a recipe for civil war. But so far, Dwayne says, he's not made a lot of headway. I've gotten in trouble for it. I've gotten called nasty names for being Kumbaya. Same with 58 year old New York Democrat Vincent Downing, who's with a group of humanists calling for more cross the aisle, empathy and understanding. Even though Trump supporters may dehumanize him. He says he won't stoop to the same level. But Downing says it's challenging as he put it. He also tends to think like any good lefty would When I just think I'm right. Right. Right. Right.

"Couple of issues that the horse racing machines historical machines don't have that they defined as mutual wagers. And one of them was that the the players the. Aren't betting on the same race as the person standing the next machine. And they're also issues about the the racing commission adding money to the betting. And the court decided those two very technical things disqualified these machines from being very mutual waitress. So you are you know it's very technical, but it's more than semantics. It's applying the law as it exists, and that's that's the courts job. As part of the technicality part of it I saw where We're frank angst in his reporting at in his level reporting as opposed to the sky is falling reporting Frank got a quote from PAT neely. At exact at exact the systems and they respond. To you know to this as saying that they have the. The system, the you know the the mechanics in terms of the algorithms within the machinery's. Pay Scale essentially it's Payoff Plymouth. Response that will address the definition of Para mutuals. So it it feels like the there's going to be some of that kind of back and forth That's going to happen you know, and of course, the Bible Thumping Lunatics are are you know they're ready with their pitchforks and torchlights to burn down Kentucky downs and that was park You you've been you've seen these antics and the back and forth meltdown for over a decade. What what do you think? Happens you know immediately and how much of this also opens the door for the Further gaining expansion that Frankfurt is going to have to address at some point. Well. They're actually two good questions there. And the first one is the everybody been moaning the fact that the Kentucky Supreme Court has said that under the current statute, these are not mutual wagering. But they also gave us and gave Kentucky. At least two paths forward one of the ones that you've already brought up because you can change the machines. You can change the machines and I assume you can although I have no idea how they work and I'm baffled by myself. But. You can change the machines to fit the the way. The Supreme Court defined pair of mutual wagering and they were very, very specific. Definition, or they also pointed out that if you don't want to do that or can't.

"We have in the conversations we're having today. Yeah I didn't either and I certainly wasn't prepared for it especially because Obviously every single day being out in Las Vegas. We were working and You know obviously I was there for. We came right back and right back to the office on Monday and was really looking forward to that weekend and I haven't met a weekend and quite a few weekends so It's been yeah. It's been a lot but I mean you know. We're we're obviously very fortunate. We're in a great position where we're able to help. Nascar INDYCAR in so all of these teams. All of these drivers still be able to represent their partners. Still be able to put on entertaining and exciting show. Yeah it's a little bit different. Yeah you know we. There are things that you do in the video game that you can't do in real life. There are things that aren't modeled in the video game at quite after the way they are in real life. But you know at this point. We have racing you know. It's not physical racing but it's still real racing in the sense. That drivers are doing their absolute best to get good at it. And you know even the guys who I. It's also funny because it's a bit of an equaliser where you know we saw on the F. s. One NASCAR race. Last week we sell Garrett Smith Lee and to me hill riding up front and we saw Jimmy Johnson Let's say we're on why I don't expect that to be the case for Jimmy Johnson. You know this coming week. I know who he has been putting in time with. And he's been putting in time with the absolute best. Sim Racers that I can think of. But you know it's it's been kind of a fun adventure to see all of these real world racers. Try to adapt their skills to the SAM and see which ones have already been competitive and running around well in that being said there are a few real world racers that that it's not like they're newbies to the SIM and obviously they've had a leg up and I know just in the last interview he did in the last hour of Alex Rossi. You Know He. He has spent some time in Sims. But it was these million dollar you know full on simulators which is the IRA sing is about the closest thing you can get to that but it's still accessible to everybody but as Alex it said he's like they're still a little bit of difference in. He goes as much as I racing is real life. There's still so much learning because I feel like I'm a rookie. All over again. Starting from scratch not to say he's not going to pick it up a whole lot faster than somebody else. But somebody like Rossier Jimmy Johnson. Who at the top? Of Their craft. I think it's awesome seeing that. They're actually Human Chris. Yeah exactly and I have to say guys like Jimmy guys like Rossi guys like Kyle Busch all the credit in the world to them for being willing to embrace this and being willing to have to relearn all of the things that they learned as rookies all over again. You know. It's it's tough and the fact that they're having to do it on a totally different stage and then kind of having to deal with the. Oh you're so good in real life but you can't drive. The SIM thing. It's 'cause you know there are a lot of people who think the same is easier there but you know there are just as many if not more who would tell you know the same is harder because it's it's totally different. It relies on totally different sensory perception. It's being good in the race card. Doesn't have as much to do with being as good in the sense. Necessarily as you'd think sometimes you know there are some guys who you know it. Just the the seat of the pants field that they have. It doesn't quite translate even with force feedback. And you know some of the really high tech rigs it's just you're relying different things. You're relying on different levels of adrenaline relying on different. You know it's it is very much. Its own skill to master and well yes. Obviously it is very close to the real thing you know. Yeah if you never used iris before and you're jumping in I don't care how many championships you want. Five hundred one. They're gonNA be growing so all the credit in the world these guys for being willing to embrace that and being willing to have to embrace that in public on very short notice to go around these invitational events. All Right Chris. We're going up against the time break but we got all this stuff going on. I racing man gives us a details on wind.

I would assume because it's extremely affordable and you're also we're talking New York to is there a covered a bit of this with Dr Kaplan but assume there's a lot of fundraising that goes on to help. Bridge the gap. Yeah I personally am. Not Involved in the fundraising aspect. I am though the liaison and primary person who deals with our major where our primary New York City Thunder The New York City Department of Health Officer Veterinary Services. So how it works them. Is that every month. I go through our records and submit for reimbursement for those people who are on public assistance in shock proof so they essentially give us money for each surgery that you do for the people on public assistance in terms of like the rest of the fundraising. I know that we get private donations. I'm not sure Applying for grants again. I'm not really involved so much in that aspect of things. We do have a volunteer. Cfo Rector who does a fantastic job in the fundraising into things? That's great that's excellent. That's great to have a good team support of board of directors. Let me bounce up north a little bit here and let's talk about yonkers. Can you tell me a little bit about how that situation came about? Is it comparable to the situation? You just described. Yeah. I don't know how yonkers got to us to be perfectly honest. I remember is about three years ago. Four years ago we entered into contract with them. I don't know how they contacted. Gop project that part of it. I'm not sure but we go up there once a month the city of yonkers and do spay and Neuter feral cats before we actually started our contract. I took a tour of yonkers. The director of the younger Santa will shelter up. There met knee and she took me around yonkers and there are huge need yonkers for not just feral spay neuter for just four double spay and neuter. Virtually nothing available for the people up there. They have a small network but very very dedicated network of people do not in our and they make the appointments with me once a month. I get hooked up like our next one is January twenty s and. I'm already booked up. There's a lot of cats in yonkers a lot dump friendly's and just a huge need for spay neuter SAR really commend. The city of yonkers. For doing this in taking the initiative end basically. They pay us for the day to come up there. So let's talk about staffing. Do you use different veterinarians or do you have the same veterinarian that works three or four days a week and the same technicians or? Do you have different people? Every day that different people but it's a rotating roster of the same highly regarded top spay and neuter surgeons in tech team. So we have different. Docs Saturday Sunday and Monday. But it's like a small. It's a rotating group of like three or four. We used and they are excellent. We do really have excellent teams. That are working with the project. Howdy recruits on my. This is a big question amongst quite a few spay neuter clinics as they find that recruiting veterinarians and technicians. Really challenging is it. Dr Kaplan is the main resource. Or are you out there. Pounding the pavement and always keeping an eye out for you know potential editions. Yeah pound the pavement in terms of gaining Docs. But it's not really pounding the pavement. Fortunately for us so the ASPCA is consolidation. Mondays to use a lot of their staff. Staff are truck on Sundays. Mondays and Saturdays. We have a few docks that do per diem for us. Sometimes I mean the one day that can be challenging Saturdays but generally speaking sometimes. It's a challenge but right now. I'm in a really good place with staffing our truck for Saturday Sundays and Mondays over the years. What's been the greatest challenge in running a mobile as well as stationary clinic for you? Stationary clinic not so much because it stationary running evolve a unit managing a mobile known. It's always a challenge. Let's say in the winter though we've had a warm winter so that's been pretty easy so far really just. The technical end of things like the maintenance swore generator does work where the autoclave is not working or just logistically. Speaking running a mobile unit can be a challenge. And you really do have to be up early Saturday Sundays and Mondays. I have to you know generally up at five thirty six because I need to be available for the team. I mean it's a challenge. It's an interesting challenge. Sometimes I think my God. How am I going to deal with this homemade solid but eleven years later? I guess I have to solve our issues. I would agree with you when you ask the you know. What's the strength and weaknesses of a mobile program? The weaknesses that it's a mobile clinic in the strengths is that it's a mobile clinic. Exactly it takes a lot of time to get where you need to go and some days you're going to go in there and it's not going to start and then you're calling a lot of people and then other days you're GonNa get where you need to go and you're GonNa have this incredible group of people that are so appreciative of the fact that you were able to drive to their town because they had to take the bus or the subway to get to you. They wouldn't have been able to get their cat spayed or neutered otherwise and then you feel all good about the fact that you've made the effort to get what you needed to go exactly one thing that I didn't mention his driver so the driver is an absolutely critical component to our team. I mean often times when you mentioned above a unit you mentioned the documented attacks by the driver who on Sundays and Mondays also is frequently is the senior veterinary assistant and also. The greeter is very very important component to the team because they are really the first face the toby project the client see when they've been waiting outside since four thirty in the morning so am absolutely grateful for our drivers. We Have Otis on Saturdays and then different drivers on Sundays and Mondays rose primary driver and other people from the really really really important role so for anyone who's thinking about starting a mobile unit driver is critical. Not only because they need to be a good driver just because they need to be on time. They need to be friendly again. It's the first person that people see when they see our truck. So let's talk about the team specifically you have the driver who also acts as a greeter and you have to technicians or one technician. Yes so we have. The breakdown is driver a senior veterinary system. Sometimes is the same person. Sometimes isn't an L. bt licensed veterinarian technician and then the So it is in the truck when they're during surgery it's three people the sea L. bt. And the dog so if someone was thinking about starting at clinic if you're just starting out in your in a community that didn't have a stationary clinic or other options. What sort of recommendations or tips would you give them? I really it's just important to talk to people who have done this before actually had calls with people like in the last year a few people. I don't remember exactly where they live. But they were thinking of starting a mobile unit nineteenth Or basically we're all in this together and we're a team and we all want the same things regardless of where you live in regardless of how small you're starting or larger starting. I think it's really important to network and talk to people who have done this before. I think that they can be a real valuable source of information to someone who is just starting out in also really talk to people about how much it cost because it is an expensive endeavor to run a mobile leading now and people oftentimes don't realize like how much close to actually run a trump. You know quit meant maintenance all of that. So I encourage anyone who wants to star to really start networking talk people who have done it before. So folks are interested in finding out more about the toby project. How they find you they can email us at info at Toby Project DOT. Org We also have a facebook paid for also very active on instagram. So they can contact us any of those three ways and Laura's or anything else you'd like to share with our listeners today no I think we've covered everything I appreciate. You giving me the time to talk about the toby project in anyone that is interested in starting this or has questions feel free to reach out more than happy to help. Yeah I think it'd be great. I I do think across the country. There are definitely some areas where we need some more spay neuter clinic. So you don't think that we're done with building enough high volume spay neuter and affordable spay neuter clinics especially cats around the country. But he's certainly dogs too but I think we still need to continue that growth rate of clinics all across the country. So hopefully hopefully this show will help inspire somebody to start another clinic in their community. If they don't have one but Laura I wanNA thank you again for to be a guest on my show and I hope we'll have you on again in the future. Maybe with an update down the road of any changes that you might have church for our listeners. Today I'd like to wish everybody. A Happy Saint Paddy's Day.

"y. toby" Discussed on The Community Cats Podcast
"Today we're speaking with Laura Berman. Laurie runs the day today. Operations and the Mobile Unit for the Toby Project. She's been with the organization since day one and considers her work not just a job but emission. She's a native New Yorker currently lives in Brooklyn with her twenty one year old cat Francis Lori grew up in Queens New York and considers herself in activists in that she always has been involved in cause related work whether it be a political campaign or helping people with AIDS. She truly believes in giving back and that people can make effective change at the grassroots level through hard work commitment and forging effective partnerships. She got involved with the toby project after coming back to New York from Portland Oregon where she spent several months working. She wanted to get involved in something meaningful and met Dr Andrew Kaplan through his practice city veterinary care. He was the vet for her two cats and his passionate commitment to animal welfare inspired her to get involved fast forward. Eleven years later. She's an integral part of the organization's Lifeblood and operations her role at the toby project encompasses many areas but a key component is to further the mission of the organization make effective use of the three to four days per week at the toby project operates in addition to low income pet owners in the bronx and Brooklyn. Much of the focus has been on community cats particularly in the last year when the toby project has seen a huge increase in calls for help to that end she implemented Mobile Mondays for feral and abandoned cats by appointment with tr. Certified folks in Brooklyn. In addition she has built effective working relationships with those doing. Tr will often do partnership days. These days are unique and valuable service whereby the toby project gives the day to a reliable tr person in Brooklyn or the Bronx and they are responsible for filling the truck in the past year alone. The to- Project has done partnership days with Brooklyn Animal Action Little Wanderers. The New York City can't coalition flatbush. Cats fat cats and other organizations in addition Laurie oversees and implements their contract with the city of Yonkers and sends the truck there on a monthly basis to do spay neuter of community cats. This has been much needed. Free Service in Yonkers and demonstrates their commitment in reducing the feral cat population through spay neuter. Laurie like to welcome you to the show. Thank you so much. Thanks grace to be here. Thank you yeah so I spoke with Andy couple of weeks ago or about a month ago or so in his episode number. Three hundred and thirty nine so folks missed the interview with Dr Kaplan who also runs the toby project. Feel free to check out that episode at the community podcast Dot Com. But in that conversation with him he kept referencing. You need to ask Lori this question and you need to keep asking this question and so I knew at that moment that I wanted to get Lori on the show so I want to thank you again for joining me today and we can talk about the nuts and bolts about everything that you know about the toby project and how things really run at the ground level before we dive into that. I'd like to just ask you. How did you get started in animal welfare and get really passionate? Were you involved before the Toby Project? I wasn't and I spent a few months in Portland Oregon and the West Coast in California and basically just trying to see if that was going to work in terms of me living there and they did not so. I came back to New York and I wanted to get involved in something meaningful. And Dr Kaplan was the vet of my cats and he spoke so passionately in knowledgeable about animal welfare that he inspired me to get involved and so by signed up to be a volunteer with toby project and that was in two thousand nine eleven years ago and I have stayed with the organization since some of that was really my first involvement in animal welfare but specifically spay neuter. And I really didn't understand at that. Point the concept of spay neuter making New York City of no kill city and the amount of dogs and cats that actually argues tonight because they not available homes so that was my first start with animal welfare I have to say an amazing eleven years. You're beginning your education process back in two thousand and eight thousand nine and a lot has changed within New York in that period of time before we go into those details about the toby project you know. What have you seen sort of change over the years for community cats in particular in New York? Well I think that there is a lot more effort and a lot more coordinated effort to do tr to them. Spay neuter to make use of programs like the ASPCA. Toby project in really just a lot. More Information and coverage has been on the plight of abandoned cats in New York City. So that has definitely been a change. Also I will say from Toby. Project perspective our focus particularly in the last year year and a half has been a lot on community cats. We've seen a huge increase in calls coming into the Chubby phone for people who want help people recognize that cats are reproducing and it is the best thing for them as well as the community to get them span neutered so you think the increase in calls is more about general popular awareness about the opportunities for trap neuter return or just. There's no other I mean I think it's awareness and also gives just for whatever reason I don't know the reason for this. There's just seems to be an explosion in cats in New York whether may be I mean. Maybe it's the warmer weather and there's no kitten season seems to happen all year round. I'm not exactly sure what the reason is but I know that from my perspective. In answering the toby following there has been a huge increase in calls particularly this last year and talking to other people who use our truck and other people who do tr people have just seen just an increase in cats all over the place. Cats kittens dumped friendly's very sad. Do you feel that? There's a change in the accessibility for affordable veterinary care. Has it become less affordable or all those opportunities still open to folks veterinary killer speaker. Newt or both I would say spay neuter as a priority and then the veterinary carrot is secondary but I feel that across the country. There's been a reduction in the number of dollars available for really affordable spay neuter for various grants. And that kind of thing. So I think that the dollars have dried up a bit and that might be playing a role too. Yeah I mean that. Might be certainly. There is not a lot of money for spay neuter. I'm not really involved in financial end of things so much but I just know from talking to people who do. Tr for example. It's very hard to get spots. I mean the ASPCA obviously doesn't amazing service in New York City but it's difficult to get spots there. We have limited days. I think it's a combination things in probably funding wise. There is not a lot of funds. I span neuter so at the toby project. Tell me a bit about your clinic. You operate out of a truck and you mash style clinics or just operating out of a truck. We just operate out of a truck right now. We had a stationary clinic. A spay neuter clinic for feral cats from two thousand eleven through two thousand eighteen through the generosity of Diana Who donated the space. Unfortunately she needed the space back so we lost that stationary clinic last December. So right now we're sole means of operation is our mobile unit and it operates three to four days a week which includes some days for the community cats or is that in addition to that's including so we operate. Saturdays Sundays and Mondays sometimes an extra day Saturday Sundays. Mondays is the primary days that I have staff to staff the mobile unit Saturdays for low income pet owners. Bronx Sunday's a mixture. We have a contract with the city of yonkers. Go Up there and do feral spay neuter. So we go up there once a month and we have other contracts. That usually take our Sundays and Mondays are for federal in abandoned. Cats are trump is parked in Brooklyn. We also have I think is really unique and very valuable service at toby project provides. We have partnership days where someone who is T- In our certified who is responsible when highly regarded in the Cunard world will call and book a private. Toby Day in so I give the day to them and they are responsible for filling truck and we basically come to them to do span neuter and that is in that is in Brooklyn and the Bronx. And how many cats can you do a day? So on our trump twenty usually like it's a mixture of Ferrell's in friendlies. Usually the breakdown is about thirteen. Feral seven friendly's somebody has more ferals that say they have sixteen Farrell's than if bring transfer chops instead of the the full sized traps. We can do more Ferrell's but it's usually about twenty cats at our stationary clinic. Which was just an amazing thing that we had for so long. We use the did about twenty five twenty six but that's stationary versus mobile. Yes so the one key component that I discovered with regards to mobile that was so challenging. Is that the traps. Take up a lot of space. They take up a lot of space. Which is why I encourage when I broke the appointments that I the appointments for Mobile Mondays. I encourage people to bring them and transfer traps. I realized that cats can't recover and transfer traps so they have to transfer their back to the regular size but if they bring them and transfer traps we can accommodate more feral cats on our Mondays. Yeah when we were doing the clinic with our cat mobile. I don't believe they could take more than four five traps at a time because we had so many built in cages La Vehicle. There just wasn't enough room to stack them up and position them in a way where everybody was safe all that exactly if we have more traps we have to be able to monitor the cats when they're recovering so you know twenty. Two traps would prevent us from doing that. So one thing that we did do is. We worked with the city of Fitchburg and partnered with a nonprofit group and a did the watching of the recovery used a heated bay at the fire department and so that was a fully feral day. So that was like thirty trapped cats and rate Move into the vehicle and move out and then they were designated people watching recovery so it was like a mobile clinic with a little mash style to it right so that was one of our work arounds because when we initially bought about the cat mobile we really think about owned component because the organizational also does smashed all clinics once a month for Farrell's but it seemed like there was a really big need for Farrell's on the cap mobile too so we were trying to do a work around with regard strike. One of those things is as you are leading us up and it sounds like you've had to over the years become more sort of inventive and willing to experiment you're creating these partnerships with organizations and obviously you know in order to make your finances meet you need to have a certain amount of cats arrive every day you have these partnerships with groups. I assume they meet their target numbers when they're coming to your days when they're set up is that a challenge to ensure that the right number cats show up every day. No not really to be honest because there's so many so many that need it's not challenge usually like for Monday's for example. Give you an example so for this Monday thirteenth. I'm overbooked but I usually do. Is I overbook. Because usually someone either has to cancel because they can't trap or they haven't been able to get the cat or for whatever reason but we're only at Wednesday for this Monday the thirteenth. I'm already booked. We have for this Sunday. For example. We're doing a partnership day with some few people who do tr in Staten Island. So we're GONNA have our truck parked in Brooklyn and they're going to bring the cats to us and they're already filled the truck so honestly it's really not a challenge to fill the truck because there's so much need and because we're not in operation seven days a week that there is usually a book days in advance so you don't have a problem with no shows really no. I mean no shows rarely very rarely do I have. I mean someone will only Sunday night for example and say I haven't been able to trap the cat if you can give the spot to someone else. That's fine but no shows no I mean really do. We have no shows even from the low income pet owners side. It's through the lone. Competitor is a difference than we operate very differently on for low income earners so four. Saturdays for example. When trump is in Lebron's do first come first serve similar to the ACC where people will start winding up very early. Oftentimes at five five thirty because they know that we have limited spots on truck in getting their early will increase their chances of getting their pets. They are new debt dates so low on competitors. We operate very differently than rt in our days. Two days ago by appointment. Low income pet owners first-come-first-serve. Oh very interesting. Yeah it's operated very differently. We do have contract with animal care centers in New York City for spay neuter and they actually make appointments for us but with them. It's by appointment but for our days it's first come. Hi everybody early bird.

"About. How do you get the parking archy spot having a lot of space to work out in the garage area and now he's kind of having to you know? Take care of all the logistics by himself. You know where's the trailer GonNa Park how much Marie GonNa have What about the other Taylor? Ha what do I have to worry about them. So he's kind of getting a new taste of stuff dirt racing being the team owner on that side of things. Absolutely I think and ask our guy can bring it home You guys the bell. You Got Larceny Up Risco you got. Well 'cause I said you gotTa Khanna guys that are going to be running up front But I mean like I said. I don't pretend to know anything about racing but I would be if I was betting which I'm not. I put my money on. Bell or Larsen Larkin. Because they've put on a hell of a show the past couple of years and I don't think anything will change that this year. Definitely definitely. We've also got some other interesting. Names like Alex. Bowman Ryan Newman. Jj Ailey lots of those guys. These are going to be attempting this thing. So it'd be pretty fun to watch absolutely I gotta find a way to watch it. I think I haven't been able to watch the past years but this might be the year twenty point a new year new. Yeah I think coverage is on math. TV If I'm not mistaken as far as the Big Knights I think everything else leading up to that's kind of streaming online different from places we gotta find it though. That's that's you don't want to so Davey we've got Things are kind of shaking out. We've talked about some of the off season the move for some of these teams already at this point. Are there any other weird kind of off. The wall moves you think might be happening with these teams and drivers for next year. Maybe the truck series xfinity series Are you telling me that I may have tweeted earlier in the week. Hey possibly I mean I got to try to get from the source. Himself you know will. Yeah I would expect definitely announcement houseman regarding Derek Crowds. Who on the thousand? Nineteen Kanan pro series West Championship with Bill McNally racing. I expect an announcement By the time this show goes out. I think that will probably most certainly be announced In terms of his truck series questions for twenty twenty So keep an eye out for that. That's the only thing that I'm really tuned into for sure Because I've worked pretty closely with that team there at the powerhouse teams out on the West Coast for Arkell West now as it's called and I. I think they will also be announcing their for rookie drivers for that series for twenty twenty so keep an eye out On their social account as well as mine for that news when that drops offs. Because that's kind of I mean people that are on the west coast that follow Nascar. They'd probably not the name Bill McNally racing. But if you're on the east coast and you're not you don't get into the weeds of Arco. Ask the hand whatever you WanNa call it now you you might not know a lot about the Mr but to make a long story short. They are the J. G.. R. Andrew Stewart word hostile penske all rolled into one of west coast. Stock car racing in the short-track seen so they're a big deal out there and they're going to be announcing their plans this week. Sweet so aw keep an eye out for that Derek. Though had a heck of a season the And just kind of open a lot of is at what he's capable of. DC him as a future NASCAR you know national series champion. I think it's definitely possible. I mean he's got a lot of stuff going for him right now. He has Toyota backing. He has NAPA backing getting in sponsorship. As well as some other partners that you'll hear about later this week And he's pretty damn good driver too. I mean it's something about Wisconsin. Fan May or on the east title. Oh He's from Wisconsin. They across the West title. He's from Wisconsin. It's something about those she's up there. I'm Jacob Gade as well. I believe. He's from Wisconsin. Maybe in the Nascar we own all American series. Not exactly I believe he is though so I I think crowd somebody to watch going forward because you seen Hailey Dean jumped ship before you've seen Todd Gillan jumped ship the Ford so it's like Toyota's pipeline thinning out a little bit. He's not GonNa have as much competition in terms of his age bracket right now So I think he's GonNa be a name for watch moving forward and I think you'll see a lot of this year on a little bit bigger stage that's awesome. I'm pretty excited to see him. Mixed up with some higher level talents just to see how well he shakes. out It was fun watching him. Try to compete for both championships as past season East and West and obviously got the West one but You know was was competing. Pretty well there in the east there until I I kind of backed out of the race but We're also looking at Just before we go some kind of weird tussle the kind of started on on twitter this week between virtual racing real racing Brian Kazlauskiene and Doug Kobe who's a Well modified tour driver Six time champion in that series by the way They they both took very high exception to NASCAR kind of promoting the I. Racing series drivers to the level of having a media availability session and Just kind kind of a a season preview. Kind of deal They kind of call some racing not racing. What is your thoughts on this and Do you think some racing is the future of NASCAR and do we need to be putting a stake in that And Avenue Wow you're throwing me into the fire. Okay here we go yeah So I will say this first and foremost I do not participate dissipation. IRA's thing. I did try it once at a driver autograph session and I've probably was the worst possible human in the city of St Louis at I racing racing in that very that shows how bad I am an IRA then In terms of erasing and kind of the virtual aspect of things. I was very very skeptical when the whole push kind of started and I'm not ashamed to say when the peak races were broadcast on NBC ESPN and streams through NASCAR's social channels. I washed a couple of them and I didn't turn them off. I figured I'd tell him on for five minutes that they okay. Whatever this is fun? Gone Tom Tom. Move on with the rest of my day but I couldn't. They're like they're actually repelling. And I watched a couple more and I don't pretend to follow along with the the names and the personalities of the series in that in that realm but I do have a fringe following of that but I do also respect the Doug. Kobe Bryant allow skis and their opinions. On that I baseball somewhere in the middle. I I don't think that is here. Here's my thing right. Virtual racing I racing none of that is harmful to NASCAR. I think it's been official. I lean for is that it's definitely beneficial to now's car is opening up to a new audience. You're getting more eyeballs. You're getting more interest. Act You you might even get another William Byron. You never know but at the same time I think that Doug Kobe Bryant. Do you have a point and sense of. There's no real substitute for for hands on real world experience. Now I think maybe the way that One of those two drivers voice that on twitter was a little bit a little bit. I mean a lot of it out of line. It doesn't mean that their opinion is not valid and and it holds some merit so I fall somewhere in the middle but I definitely think that virtual aspect of racing in general is extremely streaming beneficial to the world of racing and I also saw tweet that basically said Nascar is not a sport. Auto racing is a sport. NASCAR is an entity that has motor sports auto racing in it and I think that gets lost a lot of people's minds when we start talking about this kind of topic so I think You know erasing. I racing everything that goes along along with that. It's good for the sport and I have a couple of friends that participate in some leagues and got drafted by teams and stuff and I'm happy to see them have some success and enjoy damn selves. So happy touchy subject. I noticed the beneficial oughta stuff for that. Well My side of things I'm looking at it is. It's been compared a lot. It's like call of duty and other things where people do that. They're not master-marksman when they go grab a gun or anything like that. Oh call duty stuff. You're holding a controller. You're not holding a gun when you're playing it Meanwhile when you're playing I race and you've got a steering wheel pedals via gearshift or you've got all that stuff and I think a lot of it actually does translate. And that's why we've seen some some people like William Byron Josh Berry and a few others succeed after doing I racing into the real world racing. My thing is that when we can probably end it here I mean. Give it a chance if you're one of those people that doesn't really have an opinion either way but you're seeing the back and forth on twitter. Give it a chance because I was one of those I gave a chance. And now I'm not host but I'm interested and I'm a supporter of because I think there's a lot of benefits and it has way more benefits than it does negative aspects. So I'm with it. Definitely definitely Davey single. Let everybody know how they can call you on twitter one last time a man Davy Center is my handle and you can also find me on instagram program at Davy underscore the man with two and since then my middle name underscore four And also my website. ABC Dot Com. You can find all my social channels their.

"You Merle. TV's instead instead. I mean the changes are going to have. RV camping for the first time in the bill which is huge. That is huge. Low all kinds of stuff concerts. It's I mean they're making this rumor. That lights are coming well. Jeez that's about time. That's a big track. Though Kerry it's been around since the seventeen hundreds yes it has yes it has basically what do you mean it's a big track Daytona has them Daytona has it. It's it's it's hard to explain with a flat track. You have to have a lot more lighting because you don't have the banking to kind of help project. The lights that are coming from the inside inside and outside of the track a little bit more of a challenge flat track. This is twenty twenty. We can do anything. That's a good point. I mean Tesla thing we should be able to do anything. I could say that because I have nothing to do with it and nor do I care how it how it works just expected well. Hell is expecting his team to be able to transform it from the road course to the Oval Ninety minutes. Should Bill Lights Up. I mean one I say they go to Roswell on earth one of those fancy. UFO's that crashed and they can just kinda hover over the race track with all their lights. I think Michigan Tang string lights above the track. That need a lot of those because they've got those fence on the outside and inside the catch fence Indianapolis so you could use those to kind of tether year string lights to the kind of cool. How about just require everybody with their smartphones to turn on their flashlights? ooh that'd be cool. And all the campers and the Infield turn their lights on right Have everybody join in on the fun. That's the point of why he's having campers in the Infield all of a sudden right exactly. That was the whole plan where you're gonNA need your headlights. That's that's it's In in fine print on the contract as you come in though he hands you a brand new set of led headlights but then you have to install them. That's hard well. I'm I'm sure he would have a group of guys that can get it onto ninety minutes for you there you go. We'll have a line or something so big things going on at Indianapolis Motor speedway really cool to see and and the fact that he right up front in the teleconference said they're putting money towards the fans I the fan experience. That's big. That's huge especially for Indianapolis which has been more by the prestige for so long and Just of the the the legacy of the track now. It seems like they're working after going after the race fans and trying to give them a reason to want to keep coming back for more. Yeah that doesn't work anymore. The Pristine we've tried to talk that up to death and it doesn't work now backing me early nineties when they first got there ninety four all the way up to about tire gate in two thousand eight that worked but once the tire stop working on the cars that one year that was pretty much it for India as far as NASCAR goes so this this is big that they're they're kind of putting you know the the branches out there trying to reach to the fans and I think the fans pretty receptive to this is awesome. They're actually trying something which is something? You don't really see an apple do very often and that speaks volumes to the new owner of the track so NASCAR also had some big news as well this week A new rules package for short tracks and road course competition. They're going to I. Guess reduce the spoiler from lightning McQueen down to almost nothing one extreme stream to the other. It's just crazy right of course. Well IT'S NASCAR changes to the front splitter and this is the most exciting I mean a as a race fan. This is the change that you will. You'll be looking for the radiator pan is going to be changing. ooh Yeah. It doesn't salary but it does affect the air that goes below the car. So I knew you care about this. I knew you'd care about this. We'll have downforce effect which is nice because there will be less downforce on cars cars and this is of course Changes that are being play at just the road courses and any track under one point zero five eight miles Why why why did they they come up with this weird number I wondered? That's just all the mile tracks and under because a couple of them like this phoenix. Just barely over a mile. Still I know New Hampshire is for sure new. Hampshire's got that exact SPEC. I believe in that weird so to Hampshire Weird thinks. Oh so now we have. It is definitive. Yeah Phoenix is a short-track. No I mean that's still to be debated I think anything anything over three quarters of miles definitely short-track Or anything over that is definitely not a short-track but whatever so this is huge though because we had some really dismal racing at the venues where we typically had great racing in years past so we put these huge boilers on it. It disturbed air so badly that nobody could get around anybody. It was just follow the leader all day long so now this brings things back to the two thousand seventeen two thousand eighteen days where we were having really good runs in great races at racetracks and when you parlay that together with the mile and a half package age which has huge boiler which actually keeps the field closer together and we saw some pretty good mount a half raises this past year. This should be huge. Yeah yeah I I'll. I'll get excited. When I see.
"y. toby" Discussed on The Final Lap
"To be honest. But that's because I came up with it. Yeah Davey was quite impressed that we had a term for it more. Yeah why not. Yeah I mean why in the world you guys stick around the media center all weekend long is beyond me. That's a good question is beyond you actly. Anyhow this is going to be a very interesting program we're going to kind of bounce back between Me and toby and Davey and toby and I think we're going to wrap up with little. Ah Kyle Larson at the end suite. Ma'am it's a pretty well rounded. Show all right. Well let's get into it. I mean this is pretty huge news to kick things off NASCAR That sport that we talk about all the time they're going to go to Indianapolis Motor speedway but that's not the news. Whoa let's let's let's that Roger Penske tell the News News? It's his track now. So it's his announcement so let's let's kick it off with Roger Number One We've decided I to go to run on Saturday. The Pennzoil race will be on the road. Course not on the oval and we'll run the brickyard four hundred or run on the Ovallis as normal all on Sunday so to me. It's a change We went to the NASCAR people. They've looked at In Our road course will run the road course similar to what we do with the indy cars. Arjun we'll have a car battle talk about it to do some testing but we think that's a big change something that we want our fans to look at this and see if this is something that they watch this in the future and certainly Justin. We'll talk about it. Some great racing and guess what the five hundred was the five hundred Shaw Auto Hamady decades and once the decision was made to move Nascar and we felt that we wanted to take it to the next level. We've had some great racing here on the weekend. The brickyard weekend but we think with concerts the road course. On on Saturday and the Oval on Sunday. We'll make a big difference for our fans and certainly for our TV v partner so again. We're excited Doug thank you and this team here. We've talked about it. We know that we can turn this track. Think about it turning it from an oval into a road course. It's not easy but our team can do that here. So we're excited to announce at this morning and here's Roger with more. Is You know NASCAR with brought to the speedway and in how many weekends been here over the last. How many years every year since one thousand nine hundred ninety four and to think about what we could do do with Ben and his team at Nascar to make a difference and I think that's one of the things that I've tried to tell the team here we're going to invest Now and the five hundred and the brickyard for fan experience not about revenue but for fan experience and I think one of the things we need to do do you say what can we do different and sitting down with with a NASCAR team and our team we decided. What can we do to make this brickyard weekend different? And as you know it's a Independence Day Memorial Day just Month or so before that and the men and women who serve armed forces and the first responders or the top of the list so we felt what could we do to connect and I think we'll be announcing things as we go forward to connect that great group of people let do so much for our country but with that getting together with Nascar we felt with our relationship. NASCAR as we've been a track owner. I remember when Uh Bill France Junior and Lynn Kugler rupp at Michigan. And we were GONNA maybe cancel. The first NASCAR is with the Michigan Track and they begged me to run. It was the best thing we ever did. And I guess since then we've developed a relationship with the France family and everyone else they're just spent amazing and the changes ages that NASCAR is making to make their product better. He said what can we do here. So we'll talk about that as we go forward but to me. It's the fourth of July weekend. It's the military it's our fans and certainly the people here that make a difference so in case you didn't hear the news Roger bought the the race track and that sale was final on January six. Then they're already going going ahead and doing stuff. Yeah they're making some sweeping changes here all of a sudden one of the things. Obviously he mentioned it in case you missed it xfinity series racing on the road course on the same weekend as the brickyard four hundred now. Let's take that apart.

"Welcome back to Topi podcast about a better future. John Biggs today. Lucia we have Toby west. He's as scifi author. Author singularities children. There's a there's a series of three here. Welcome toby. Hey, thanks, John. Good to be hit. Tell me a little bit about these books. Yes. No working on the fourth book is three books. It's a series takes a group of diverse characters from a by twenty fifty up until about twenty fifty. It's not quite sets on this world. But that's not really a major plot point is just so that I've got a little bit of flexibility bites not always having to future near future predictions on the head. So I could give myself bit of wiggle room that and I think it's it's sort of fa me away of looking while cheese a couple of things. So it's a great story. Certainly my read is like the action and the scifi venture. But it's a way of made looking forward into the future a bit too fleshing out some ideas having characters live through that. And also well building for hopefully, what will be a few. You more books or many books down the road. So let's talk a little bit about your your future philosophy. Obviously, this isn't said on earth. But what's your what's your take? Most scifi writers obviously have to connect. What's happening currently with their writing? Right. So Yes, What's your take on on the future is is it all going to to pot or are we going to be okay? That kind of thing. I think it's in the balance at the moment. I think that's why. One of these. I didn't want to set a book, you know, in some sip. Star Trek future utopia will the problems solved because I don't think it's a folk on conclusion, but I'm in no way, entirely nihilistic and nothing will go down the toilet. So I think it's a fine line. And that's what I've tried to to show. So for me the big question is. I suppose major premise we've always had we've always needed freedom in order for the intellectuals and artists to generates the long term value that society needs. So like scientists publi don't work well with people standing behind them with whips. There were a lot of scientists off to the second bowl that had managed to withstand that for a short amount of time. But I guess the talent relief flowered once they got to the US, and we'll given enough room for that creativity to flour. And as we move into an age where we've got a that can increasingly do the jobs of intellectuals. What then become the sort of the barriers to complete fascist distort, yo where everybody's controlled. And at the same time the technology for control is coming up. And you've got this no longer need the intellectuals potentially. Because we got the we've got the two babysits everybody to make sure that they are living in something much more strangling them anything will well ROY to bites. So that's really that's high body could go, you know, we we might never get out from underneath the blankets of oppression. But at the same time, we got these amazing outages which the coming indistinguishable from magic as Klux. Yeah. That's an interesting point. So as we move forward into I guess the next decade a lot of the things that we do from who fall in love with two. We talk to what we eat are going to start being mediated by these robots. Is that is that a fascist asto Lia or is that just? I mean, if you want to argue that you could argue that the the Old Testament was essentially, a a methodology to design to make sure that you did that you did be didn't kill your neighbor or eat bad food, essentially. So these these guidelines have been with us for for centuries. Does does that sort of thing is that sort of technological? Interjection? Is that bad? Well, I think we've always needed systems too. We've we've more efficient twin will agreeing with about some basic facts and up some basic principles of society. Otherwise, it's just too much backwards and forwards about once taboo, what's not. So this is you know, I do agree that it's good to have a framework. I'm probably one of these things started off with the best intentions in mind. But when people exploit them for their own gain. It's just becomes like another another territory..
