"Think that's the full license to have done the crow that way. I just think in some ways had the crow been released closer to now where we're used to seeing all time who knows plus people's ability to download episodes on the internet to You know it creates more of a buzz that way i think two things also The crow would clearly have succeeded in a in a better way. Had it not been syndicated for people to find it. Exactly the main reason the crow did not make it to a second season has to do with quality ratings it had the quality and it had the ratings and we were actually very successful in syndication but polygram got sold to universal as we were Wrapping our season and universal. Even though they're acquired now by nbc and a strong television presence at the time universal was saying. We're not gonna do tv anymore. Yeah exactly they just killed the show. Nasty shame very sad but just the way it the way it went down. Twenty two episodes are out there on. Dvd the quality is great. And you can relive them not seeing them with commercials. Wonderful arts alliance did a fantastic job with tv guide of of mastering a very high quality dvd. Throwing all the extras and and I just think There will be a lot more people who now see it absolutely. yeah absolutely. What was the response at the at comic con for the park is a star. I mark and i were were there to supposedly assign autographs together. charitably i accompanied mark. Well he signed four hundred people that seemed like waiting to get his autograph and he's very popular not just for the crow role his martial arts movies and not to mention the fact that he is the chairman on iron chef america. That's right he's got his your fans and it was great. The one thing that i am hopeful that mark and i talked about is we went out to dinner after the comic cons and we were thrilled at that. Their response also. We were thrilled at the fact that the dvd is coming out and people will be able to see the crow. We had less things pretty much up in the air at the end of the season mark and i came up with a great way to finish the story of eric driven in in a six episode. Arc mini series. We are thinking of writing that up and seeing if we can find out a way to finish telling the driven story because it seems to me that in the same way that clark kent and superman you know deserve to have some sort of completion in their story from time to time So does the crow. It you know as it was left. Shelly jumped off the bridge. Never to be seen again and and driven had split into the driven and the crow character and then they'd been remerged everything was left up in there. What would have happened. We have a whole plan to wrap it up. In in a six episode are queer driven. is picked up five years after that episode very cool. I hope i hope that someday somebody will come knocking and say bryce about that. Six episode arc. Let's do it. Yeah well. I mean you know with dvd. How he never know You know if it will be something that fans will pick up and and hopefully if enough people pick it up and It's possible and you know we live in an environment right now. Instead of you know Was had work with a guy who has written loss boys to and it's going straight to dvd. There's there's lots of ways to make make programming. Not all in the same then you as they used to be so maybe we will finish telling the story and maybe brenton. I won't have to xerox. The dark skies still can tell someday to then be nice well. The dvd is out there. It's very very under appreciated series. That if people haven't seen it and be honest because of syndication i couldn't catch it when it was on gordon and but now on dvd having you know watched the majority of them. I'm sitting there going. It's pretty good series. And when i saw your name and acquitted psycho. Well look at this. You're giving me the call. It's really fun to talk about it. All and to relive some really wonderful memories. We spent about a year working on it. And and i'll never forget that you're a great. Yeah yeah absolutely. It's a great series. I really wanna thank you for taking the time and it's great to reconnect again. After after so long. But yeah i can tell you. Probably more people will hear this. Then they heard the dark skies interview we did. I think that that's probably true and and sad. So i'm only gonna ask you this when you hear that dark skies is finally coming out on dvd. We'll do this again absolutely. I would love to keep watching everything you always do and You always kind of tip toe into this area. So i love it. It's hard to It's fun to make up stories and make them real. It's great absolutely besides thinking. Bryce i like to thank maggie. Cortez of jay goldstein public relations for setting up his interview. Thanks again for listening. This is tony solano..

"Where harry truman walks into the tent. Or whatever well and roswell the aliens air. And i'm like this is so cool. I mean i'll tell you something else. That was just mind blowing. Which was we recreated. The ed sullivan show where the beatles appeared and i remember sitting there in the audience as we were shooting that going. Well i obviously. Wasn't the old enough to be at the sullivan show for the beatles to really be playing there and it is such a kick to be recreating the we had all kinds of those moments and they were fantastic so as i think. That's what separated you from taken. I mean taken pretty much based on this one family. But i thought dark skies made it a lot more interesting by incorporating the history. Let's face it. You have a choice you can sort of get. We decided to be big and bold as you recall. X-files was on the air at that one of the things that we decided to do was just. We didn't want to be compared to this x. Files spent a lotta time saying well. It's a big mystery. Are there really. Ufo's or is it a big here. And that's why we started our series with francis. Gary powers literally seeing a ufo. Yeah in the teaser of the pilot because we wanted to say. We're not going to screw around with you and make you ask whether they're real or not we're going to say it in frame one film and then and then we're going to march you through this alternative history and Even though it's kind of big over the top our goal is just to make it as fun as you could possibly make it. Yeah well. I still have hope that someday things will change. It'll be out on dvd in some form. You know what I brent freeman. I used to always say Bid if they cancelled that we'd finish telling the story even if we had to stand on a street corner and iraq's i keep getting fans writing me saying so semi though xerox absolutely. I really have to commend. You on is that. You're the chairman and ceo academy of television arts and sciences. Really during a really rough period. I mean you took office just you know just you know around. September of two years at timber eleventh. I literally got elected In august of two thousand and was literally we are. Emmys were scheduled for september sixteenth of that. That's right yeah so. We cancelled one time which was on. The emmys have never been canceled. That thousand. that's right and we. We cancelled them the first time because there was only five days separating. We rescheduled for october. Seventh of two thousand and one and then we started bombing afghanistan. That morning so we cancelled them a second time. Yeah was certainly a memorable time to be the academy chairman. Yeah and i think that the the m as we put on that year were certainly a very memorable remember. That's the one where ellen degeneres came out and said that she was the talibans worst nightmare a lesbian and a pantsuit. Yes right that's right. I remember that you're not jewish compassion. I've even got the joke. Run everything to me but but yeah that was. That's something that i have to commend you. That was i think. I don't think anybody would expect to that. Could happen to them when they step into like that. But that's how shows you. The impact of what nine eleven did through all our lives during that time we were certainly the the the show that was the most impacted at the beginning. And honestly i think we've matured as a society. I i tend to think that if this let me put it this way. I think you'd always have cancelled the ones that were supposed to build on september sixteenth. Y- because you'd say that's just not a decent amount of time to to to to let this go. But i do think the october seventh ones. And instead of cancelling those we would have just said we're going on. Yeah i think people realize now life has to go on. Yeah absolutely now. Have you had a chance to go back and watch your contribution to lois and clark is that is out on. Dvd and all of them are out. I have a a and i get a lot of email from fans who tell me that. The the episode i wrote were clark returns to smallville. And we reintroduce kryptonite. It's called the green green glow of home. Yes we talked about it on my original. Hey it's their favorite. The lowest marks eternally grateful although i know it used to be one of the world's best credits and now it's not even the most recent superman show on tv. Yeah i mean. Have you had a chance to catch smallville. All those wonderful wonderful. It's just totally different story. But i've enjoyed watching Watching it over the years as well my favorite episode though although well. I have to tell you i got to three. That all are memorable. Introducing clark to smallville the kryptonite. That's great but i also wrote the first episode that aired after the pilot. Deborah joy levine had written strange visitor from another planet. And that's the one where clark realizes for the first time that he's an alien because until that point is always assumed that you know if you find a kid in a rocket you back in those days you would have felt like he was maybe a russian experiment fired in space like a monkey and so he always thought he was a russian and he realizes he's an alien and then also i got to rewrite the the the famed Episode from the first superman series which we called all shook up but it was on the first series called panic in the sky. Yes of course yes. Sure yes and so i basically was told. Okay make it twice as long and a little bit. Funnier to to walk into. Footsteps of of that particular episode was very memorable as well. It was great. I mean lois clark was just great. And it was just at the time when digital effects were just being used yes and dino the crew could do so much more now than they ever could then but it's really that was really one of the first times where we probably saw digital superman in some ways. I a lot of things were made easier. And but also i have to say. The people were great dean. Cain was just one of the nicest guys around it. And i really got along very well. Teri hatcher yeah please to see success now as well. Have you had a chance to see the latest bryan singer version of superman. Yes i i liked it a lot. Yeah you know. I i think it goes back to. If we can come full circle back to the crow we have just proved the point that that and a really terrific character there can be some ways that are wrong to portray them. they're going to be pollyanna and say you can never screw up right. But they're but there are many ways to be right. Oh absolutely. I think you could argue that Christopher reeves was right For his time christopher reeve and george reeves was right for his time and dean cain was right for his and now there's a new superman. There's two more superman that's right. There's too at the same time. The other yeah brandon routh too. So it's yeah by agree. And i.

"And that is one of the funniest. I told her you've been immortalized. You're on the crow gag reel. Oh yeah a lot of people are going to see that now. My funny who really works but that was a lot of fun. Hey thank you for listening to sifi. Talk stick around. I have more get back to sci. I'm tony and what's neat is. It gives people a rare opportunity to see on the dvd. That shows bible and really he really see how how you actually have a bible for a television series as your guide right and then not to mention all the scripts and then also fascinating was the daily to actually getting a chance to see the uncut dailies for certain episodes. That was they were talking about doing the The dvd and said. What do you. What do you have the texture. I naively assumed that somehow polygram when it got sold universal all of the crow dailies and all the goodies would have been transferred to some volt. Universal true couldn't find anything. Wow all of this stuff that you see. Is there only because. I kept it in my garage classic tale. When you see these things you know when a when a film is rediscovered because somebody had it in the garage for fifty years. That's true stuff only with her. Because i i kept it. And i had kept the dailies for three shows because in each of those three shows one of my kids had a small part and and so i kept him from my own personal use and it turned out that they're the only dailies anybody could ever get their hand on so i guess I guess my kids will live on in that as well. It was great. They were great. Really gives you an idea of what. The show looks like without the ending with outbreak. The music and everything and it's a whole nother animal of course but it sits. It's what's the fun of it and for anybody who's like a film student or a film fan or a tv show and that's a great way to. Here's a little behind the scenes thing for you in one of the episodes. It's about the little ghost boy. Casey who is my son jared. And he's on the bridge between the To the land of the dead. Yes yes and as you watch those dailies. You'll notice something that i noticed. For the first time after they were shot and we had no opportunity to reshoot them which is for whatever reason the director shot the entire scene and the coverage through cyclone fencing. And as you watch the dailies you start to say to yourself. Why do they have cyclone fencing in the land of the debt. Would they need that. It was the kind of thing where usually on like in the pilot. We did the the bridge but we shot above it for seen. So you're not really thinking of the cyclone fencing but this guy had shot through the cyclone fencing and it just killed us. We all went well. There's nothing this and that's where you say if it's a feature you reshoot it bright either you live with it. Yeah exactly. we lived with it exactly right. The first time we talked was for dark skies and looking back on that project. I would stack what. I saw dark skies pup against taken any day of the week. You're very kind. I by the way taken literally took a lot from darkness. eric close. who are star was in exactly stobie. Hooper who shot dark skies pilots shot one of their up. There were several other dark skies connections doing it In addition. But i'm glad they had success I and i. It doesn't take anything away from how much we all enjoyed. Working on dark skies. It was for me. And i'm taking nothing away from the crow but ultimately james oh bars the creator of the croquet ryan ryan the developer. If you will or the eater of the television series. But that's a different brent. Friedman and i got a chance to create from nothing the dark skies series. And there's something so incredibly gratifying about making something as crazy as that up and then seeing it on television and i have to believe that is the probably the only guy who has spent over forty five million dollars telling a story where john kennedy was assassinated because he was going to tell the truth about. Ufo's probably league of my own their well. That's one thing. I love the doubt the way you the way you blended history and into this reality. It was really well done. I really enjoy much fun and my heart breaks. That sony has decided not to release it. They just about four months ago. They were going to release it this october. And just last week Right after i returned from comic con as high as i could be about the release of the crow dvd. Yeah got an email from sony saying that they had decided not to release dark skies because and this goes back to you saying how we integrated history because we had done such an incredibly good job grading period music into it that they felt that it would be too expensive to require the song sports. Ed that's that's terrible. Shame because Had a lot of introduced us to eric. But also jerry ryan to was serious was discovered by the star trek people Through her appearance on dark skies russian agent. Yeah exactly of course dark skies was the last thing that That great actor. Jt walsh ever shot before. that's so true. He was so good as head of majestic he really did. A great job. I after i had seen the whole thing. I was just like. Oh wow this is cool. I am glad that that sci-fi You know does show it. Occasionally they do and i appreciate that. They've they've given a. I mean let's put it this way. Nbc kept preempting it and they put it on saturday night. Those existed so nobody ever saw you know in its entirety. The one thing. The sci-fi channel has done for us is giving people the chance to see it. Eventually though i would love those good queen. Dvd copies to be out there. So people can really experience because to really go through it episode by episode. Each one is so different than it was so incredible about it to recreate the summer of love one episodes and to do jim morrison and another episode of k. And all that stuff. Yeah i mean. I i think that i love.

"You'll actually see what the crow is seeing or he'll flash from the crow and it strengthens their bond together. And the fact that you get the impression that crow was one responsible or whatever entity the krill really is. I brought him back to do what he's supposed to do on earth well. We needed those tools. To deepen the franchise. Sure at the end of the day it. It is a television series right and you have to be able to look back at the episode and go well. That was the episode where the crow did doesn't such in order to have that sort of sense of completion. Around it episode. There had to be some crime slash mysteries slash challenge that needs to be accomplished and in order to do that since he's you know he had The the certain tools crow vision. He had empathic flashes. He had the fact that all recognize cop and he had the fact that sarah was constantly getting in trouble and helping him You know bring bring ideas to his attention. Yeah exactly another character. Character shelly webster. I actually met sabine act junket for battlefield earth because he was in the movie of course and being the kind of guy that i i was the only guy in the room asked about crime. I'm sorry to hear that. But i only wish you were telling me she was mobbed for autographs but she said a lot of nice things about it which i included in in my blog about it so when about the dvd. So yeah it was it was. She really her character was so cool because it had kind of a romeo and juliet kind of feel to it. Were you know. They were lovers at literally. Couldn't never meet and until things got straightened out and think of the challenge presented to our writing styles to keep her as a character who was always in play even though a she wasn't alive and be was in the land of the dead and not among the living as raven was exactly The other thing that we. I this kind of goes back to the the how we set the series up when i said the feature was about revenge and we were about redemption. The other thing we were about was a great love story and one of the things that we noticed happening with. Our demographics is that Women began to find the show. So the toward the end. If i'm not mistaken our viewers were about evenly divided between men and women because the women you know a lot of the men enjoyed the the the sort of the martial arts aspect Mark skills but A lot of the women also responded to the the romantic love lost and and uh the angst of trying to get get the lovers back together. Absolutely no you're so right about that. That's something that would hook them into it. By the way we only had one episode that we were unable to do concern. Shelly webster. So we're going to do an episode where it was a sort of a parallel dimension kind of episodes okay because remember driving at the portal out of his his his law. Yes and we were going to do one where something happened. And i don't remember the details now accomplished it but he went through or somebody else went through but the shelley and the world that he ended up in was the shelley from the feature film oh wow and our theory then would have been that. What we were going to say was that we were one reality. Where eric driven on this earth was Market cosco's and that the eric treatment on the other earth was brandon lee. Who lived on. Oh wow kind of a tribute to brandon lee. But at the end of the day it became too complicated legally to how to do all that. Yeah that's shame so we had to put that aside but it would have been fun. Well you know it's interesting to some of the guest stars I mean i can name to excitement watching it recently. Jr born who was in it and and he's actually one of the nicest guys you ever wanted me absolutely and he's not in this episode at all trashing those houses that must have been fun for the actors anything And then also christina cox who is now on blood ties right was on your show too. So cox was. Jessica guy called jessica capshaw. I'm not mistaken. See married to steven spielberg or something. Catch those cake capshaw. Maybe ours was jessica jessica. Yeah you know it's funny. You'll look it up later or i will. And we'll i'll realize but christina provided like again the skeptic. Once albrecht became a believer it was necessary for us to sort of levin him with a skeptic until she came in she also disrupted his relationship and all kinds of things. Yeah man well she. She's moved on to has her own show now. He's grace she did. Yeah i love special features on the dvd and the commentary you did with mark in the first two episodes for great i mean it was pretty insightful information and you both are obviously having a very good time watching the episodes. We were thrilled to be doing it. And you can probably tell from that Audio commentary that we're very good friends We've we've had We've gotten together with our wives for dinner three or four times last year. And you're actually on that. We were just having a great time and just exploring the whole all the memories together. We'd sort of on purpose not seen it Because we wanted to have that. That kind of i think i'd watched one of the first episode once in preparation. We haven't really paid a lot of attention. That was fun for us to sort of see it again and just really experienced that and sabine told me. He told me that there was always laughter on the set. And if you want proof the gag reel will certainly show. I mean that was pretty funny. I i you know. The the tragedy is that i couldn't include the entire gag. Reel i have it but It was the only version that anybody could find. Was the one i had kept on. Vhs where the audio track is mixed with the music the music separate the audio track so they had to cut certain scenes because they had The music in them. You did get to see i. I got a real laugh out of the one where the little girl Throws up on the south was great daughter..

"Season. And honestly i would I'd stack all the scenes with Driven and albrecht up against each other and put them in watch them in chronology and just enjoy the growth of that relationship for me. It was very special. And i think the actress did a terrific job with us. That was one of the things that you did very well was to have their whole growth that way instead of just you know two seconds like you see in a lot of tv series. You gotta mainly sagoes. Everybody's has to get along right away right. And like in the beginning albrecht. There was one scene. He sees them outside the nightclub and they just there was a little. They were just still feeling each other out. You know and i like that. That was very face it. That's what would happen if i met someone today. Who said i've come back from the dead. I would have a hard time believing that. I'd have to ask myself. I'd i'd have to rule out every other rational possibility before. I could even consider that. And albrecht being a cop with would really have to do that. And he also has lieutenants to answer to right people like that so he had a really interesting problem and then about halfway through the season after all breakfast signed on and had to realize that driven was pretty much. The real deal. We needed a new skeptic so we gave them a partner and we brought in the jessica capshaw character not capture jessica. I you know what this goes to prove how long it's role the cash. But yeah i. I like that. I liked his character a lot. In and the fact that he also had to deal with his His report girlfriend to that certainly made it a very interesting dynamic and they had some nice scenes to start the series off. That were cool. I like that when he would come home tired and you know he. He couldn't explain to her what he just experienced that day. Not at all. Yeah and let's face it. You really don't have any choice when you're doing tv series you've got to fill that forty five minutes per episode sure noncommercial time and and program time and figure out what to do with it and since fights are enormously time consuming it can't all be a fight It's got to be people dealing with The the the sort of issues that affect that would affect them but are feeling was to stay true to the spirit of the The crow ask ourselves.

I'm a composer on who and i'm talking to sifi tool like several iconic images from the crow like that one scene where he's lying down on the in the in the room and there's like candles on the shape of a crow around the beautifully done. I really like that. And then something that you and mark talked about in the In the commentary in the first episode with a beautiful green tint where he went after heat lands and he gets up and he even made a point of saying his arms or spread out almost like wings beautifully. Done that's That we We have to say is just one of the best at to me. I still get goosebumps whenever i see that. But you're right. I'm glad you highlighted. Also the scene where he's laying down with surrounded by the candles of the the crow for both of those were attempts to just say you don't have to have a hundred million dollars to make something that's cool too. You can think of the images and think the conflicts in as you know creative way as possible and still get a lot of bang for the buck and there's two two images that would stand up in virtually any feature film version of a crow that you might ever do. Oh yeah absolutely absolutely another thing. That i liked was what i call. Crow vision where you would actually see through the crow itself and now interesting. He actually became a character himself. The spirit crow feeling was the crow was a you know a guide if you will that stayed with driven and then a lot of this is just where you sit with. Something long enough. And you're not doing the one shot of the feature and you're really trying to expand the franchise and you have to ask yourself how things really work. Or what is there a new way that i can look at this. That it gives us another tool in our arsenal. And the idea that you bring up of the crow vision is is exactly that if eric driven and the spirit crow were somehow psychically bonded. Why wouldn't driven who is already undid character if you will be able to to make use of the very visions that the crow has yeah. That's and that gave him and it was a a superpower if you will. That wasn't that super but was very mysterious. Absolutely helpful made added a lot to the series by having him The way he would turn up and you know you would see things and he'd always always be a hint of something that we're going to happen too so absolutely so it was. It was great to incorporate that we also did what you know. As long as you're talking about the The crow vision. The other thing that we tried to do is the whole. Use of these empathic flashes. The idea driven had some kind of psychic connection when he when he actually touched an object. That had been near the the force field if you will of of whatever. The action was that that allowed him to experience that The one rule we had for it though was he could never experience such a flash in any way that that identified what the problem was. It had the only deepen the problem. So for example there have been shows on. I'm not gonna pick on the my name right now but there are certain psychic detective shows that are on tv right now. Well i have literally seen the main character Pick up something and see a magazine and read the address office and to me that is a viable at least for our series. That would have been a huge violation. That would have been cut as the first moment because that just makes it too much too easy better for us for driven to get an image and then not know what it means exactly even at one point. There's an episode where all bread comes to them and says do that thing you do and hands him a piece of evidence and expects driven to have a a psychic flash and and give him a lead and driven says. It's not like you know a faucet. I can't turn it on and off exactly right and occasionally he will. The crow will kind of send him something he'll get like.

"Hi this is bryce able. I was the executive producer of the crow stairway to heaven which is just now out on. Dvd and tony tomato. And i are going to talk about that as well as dark skies and lois and clark and some other sifi issues and you can hear it. All on sci fi. Talk one of the nice things about doing sci-fi talk as occasionally you get to reconnect with someone. You originally talked to a few years ago. In this case it was almost over ten years ago where i spoke to bryce zabel who is producing a series called dark skies. But this time we reconnected about a new. Dvd release of his series the crow stairway to based on the james. Oh bar graphic numb. We talked about the dvd and it's many features and the genesis of making the transition from pay graphic novel to feature film and now a tv series the crow stairway to heaven. Here's my conversation with bryce zabel. The executive producer of the series. It's great to reconnect with you again. Because it's been eleven actually almost eleven or twelve years. Yeah sadly yes think about it. I was just sitting here today with a work session with another rider. Coming up with a are done now. I've done death with the crow sealions with dark skies and this guy and i were just figuring out how to do kind of a new age. Zombie movie movie but tv series. That'd be cool. We're trying to make it very real in the same way you know. So it's not like dead people walking around that you have to fire both their brains but it's a little scarier than that you're essentially you are brought in to develop and executive produce the crow and kind of make the transition from the films to the tv series and and you decided to make some changes to make it into the serious Discuss kind of like what your thought processes were to make that transition. Well the the first thing that you have to say to yourself is. It's okay to use the eric driven character. Yeah because You know there was a tremendous amount of interest and concern about that because the the movie that was so popular star brandon lee who died tragically and there was concerned that we you know we should just let it go there. And and not. Do eric driven character again. But the thinking at polygram at the time and also creatively was there have been lots of characters who have played actors. Rather we played superman over the years yes Many many people who've played batman and There there is no one particular way to play a character on and only one actor so our feeling was we should Try to do the best. We could and deepen that. Eric driving character which people wanted to know more about the character had existed already in comic book for sure and then With branly obviously in the feature film feature film had to be different from the comic book And so the the tv series had every right to be a little different from feature films so we sat down and tried to analyze. Well what was it. That was great about our driven. And what was it would have to change to make it work long-term series and the first thing you realize is that the comic and the film or about the same thing which is revenge driven and his girlfriend are killed yes when he comes back a year later. He has bent on revenge but a television series. It has to survive week to week with a relatable character is not probably gonna make it just on revenge are are twist to it was to make it about redemption and if you go to redemption you end up with a stairway to heaven you're climbing. Yeah exactly and that's where the the crow made its most substantive chase Change rather and and i think it worked very well. And i and i thought the marta cosco's did a phenomenal job of giving extra life to the The character and again he was a friend New brandon lee so he was respectful from that point. I certainly tried to be respectful of the material that went before. And you know people can now judge for themselves on the dvd. Absolutely i mean casting wise. I mean talking about walking into something. I mean. He was perfect because not only even resembles brandon lee a little bit but also he can do the martial arts martial artist. Son was terrific fighter. Anything marks biggest complaint. I think was that we didn't give them long enough to do the great fights that he's because we're shooting seven day Shooting schedule so a little tight but he performed so well an and brought such humanity to the role. That i think was unexpected. I think i think the polygraph people thought were hiring a martial artist who can act passably but in reality. He proved to them that he was way more than just an actor. He brought that character to life and he grows character. Grows marks performance grows during the entire season. He also had some fun with him too. I mean he would have his his his comebacks in his one liners. He had some fun with that. You can see why yes i think. Part of what we tried to do is to say that the the crow persona was an outgrowth of You know that that wasn't wasn't just but was sort of an overlay onto driven persona. Had a little more arch nece and and comedy in it. yes Not comedy kind of wicked sense of humor. Yeah exactly a bitter and wicked sense of humor. Driven was an incredibly challenged person trying to reconnect his humanity. Each other on different Challenges and they they literally and figuratively split apart in our final episode. We realized that the the crow and driven were separate personalities. And one thing that you that you kept was the character sarah right. We kept. Sarah and detective albrecht right to characters from the comics and into the feature film. Yeah tell you the one thing that we did for me that that gave me something to write from for the entire season. In addition to sarah who play was the thirteen year old girl who had defended thriving and shelly in their previous lifetime but was the the albright character our feeling was the feature film. Basically very quickly as albrecht accept the fact that driven is For real and that. He's sort of an annette guy that had come back but are feeling was. It'd be very hard for a policeman to accept exactly is supposed to be bound by the facts so instead we thought well what would all brek say when a guy Who was supposed to be dead for a year. Whose girlfriend is supposed to be dead shows up after a year. usa okay. that means he didn't die. Which means that somehow. He participated in the faking his own death. And if in fact the shelly webster character is dead then he is a prime suspect in this. So we in in fact made grave on a prime suspect in the murder of shelly webster and in the disappearance of eric driven. Yeah and put albrecht and raven on a season long path from skepticism to friendship and tried to that out over the.

We can fight if you want. But but the. I need the perspective from people. Because i feel like everybody's look how great he plays. Look zabel escape pressure. Did it off. The bears have the greatest offensive line so use his legs escape the pressure. That's why they went to mitchell. Trubisky okay fine. That's great however because the bears may not have the best offensive line. We want to them. Sacrifice justin fields. We say like oh well. He's got some legs so he can escape pressure. That's not the condition that you wanna put him in. It's like he's supposed to be the future. You know what. I mean like that. So i kinda Tv this week. I'm going on monday. I cannot wait to sort of like be the voice of reason a little bit. Because i feel like The high expectations the high standards sort of like we had analysts. Talking about how justin fields five months ago was not a hard worker. Like you didn't want to be great. Didn't want to put the work in you know. Would you know was a slow processor. Didn't go through his reason. All of a sudden those same people want him to start. It's sort of like like what are you talking about. does he suck earthy.

Little run through of the things that the fed his head to Do other than just a stabilizing the money supply and interest rate full employment. And now they're asked to be take on things like reversing climate change promoting racial equity the in carrying out various various social justice demands of the progressive left. So i'm interested in what you guys think about that. So i mean it's you know when you think about the history of the federal reserve the federal reserve was created in nineteen thirteen by by the way this was deterred experiment in central banking in the us to prior central banks that of the us. Yes and then. The second bank So the federal reserve was created in response Back in nineteen seven was a banking crisis. And then people started talking that In order to prevent Banking crises from happening They'll create a federal reserve that would basically provide liquidity to the banking system in the event. That was another banking crisis By short enough you know. The great depression happened. After the creation of defended the fed really was not able to prevent that and send the idea back then that they need to raise interest rates Right instead of lower them and tighten money rather than loosen it right. Yes that's true and The federal reserve and the secretary treasury andrew mellon. He was a big proponent of tightening His famous dialogue was liquidated capital liquidate labor liquidate of..
Playing Hands Against the Fish
"So if you sit down at any table let me ask you a question real quick. Who is the most likely person that you're going to earn chips from. Yeah the weakest one at the table right. Oftentimes the fish the to the overly loose passive limpkey calling station kind of players that just cannot fold pre flop nor post flop even if their life depended on it right. They got third pair. It's a tournament. Twenty big blinds. You bet flop turn and river. They're just going to call you all the way because hey you could have east king and my pocket pair of aids are going to win here right. Those are the kinds of players that you are targeting. But here's the thing. Do you truly target them. Do you live for playing hands against the fish. I know for the longest time For the longest time. I did not do that. So here's what i want you to do. The next time you sit down at a table live or online if it's online play just one table at least for the first thirty minutes right. Now look around the table and figure out what types of players you're up against. Hopefully you've got to three or even more fish at your table and fisher. Just the weak ones. Like i said that you target for value. Maybe it's easy to get them to fold. But basically you know how to play and exploit these players very well because maybe they're not thinking maybe they only care about their cards and the board right so your goal is to first step one. Find the fish at the table and write down their names. You know bob seven to three susan. Eight nine maybe. Those are the two fish zabel. Your goal is to play in that thirty minutes of that one table or your entire session. However you want. Your goal is to play as many times against those fish as possible. And when i say play as many times against them basic i mean get to the flop against the fish. Because that's where you're exploiting is gonna come from. That's where you're going to be able to get them to fold their hands sometime. Post flop right or get the most value out of them when you hit a strong hand so write down. All the players names a piece of paper every time you see the flop remember. Your goal is to get into. Play hands. Against bob and susan right. Well every time you play against a hand a hand against bob put a tick mark next to his name. Susan put a tick mark tick mark next to her name. By the end of your session your goal is to have more tick marks against those two players than all of the other ones combined. Now you might be saying sky. There's a problem here. I can't control what hands. I'm dell or whom i opponents are going to be an absolutely. You're right about that but if you have the goal of targeting these fish you're gonna open raise with any playable hand when they are in the blinds with the goal of everybody folding. You get them heads up against you when they come in for the raise if they have a week wide range. You're going to be three betting them with the hope of everyone else folding and you get that fish heads up to yourself when they limp into the pot you get your opportunity now to make it big five. Six seven big blinds. I so raise. Hopefully everyone else folds. And then bob or susan. The fish plays a hand against you. The goal is to target these fish. Whatever hands at uc whatever players you see against. Maybe you end up seeing seven against these two players but fifteen against everyone else. Well that's just the way the cards played. Maybe the eggs. They exited the handy. You've got dealt a ton of aces. Kings queens ace king. And so you were just playing your normal game right and you try to target them. But maybe didn't have many opportunities. But i guarantee if you play this kind of session often you are gonna find that. You're targeting your fish targeting choices are going to win out and you will begin playing more hands against the fish than you do against the other players and that just helps you out. It's going to help your win rate. It's going to help your enjoyment when you're constantly playing against the fish. You know that your skills outstrip. There's and in the end or in the long run. I should say their money will eventually make it to your

"The Lars Larson Show on Twitter at Lars Larson show, And now we've got Alexei. You could say play the Lars Larson show to Alexa and if she's listening The Lars Larson show. So here's Bryce Zabel is a big time TV reporter when I first met him, but his career has gone a long way. Since then, he is now a movie producer, a director, a writer and author, and all of the above Bryce. It's great to have you on the program. You know, next to Christmas. Being on the show with you is my favorite time of year. You're too kind. But listen, do you mind if we go back over some of that history Because you have an incredible history that leads to Hollywood. It leads to being in charge of the Academy Awards during in the immediate, immediate aftermath of 9 11, it's It leads to a lot of things, including some very successful shows. And now you've got a book on the Beatles and later on in the in the interview, I'd like to talk to you about the big production you have about a true story out of World War two. You surprised me. I thought I'd read a lot of World War two history. I had never heard this story and I'm anxious to see you bring it to the big screen. So let's go back to your roots. How'd you get into the business? Well, I've been thinking a lot about that. Because the person who is my first mentor in television news just passed away. And it made me kind of consider how chance and fortune lead to a lot of different things. So, yes, I I Well, we both lost a mentor because John Doyle was a mentor to both you and to make Yes, he is The man that hired me when I was a University of Oregon broadcast news graduate and I spent 3.5 years working in Eugene television and cable TV. Interestingly enough, and I'll try to give this the very short version. But I got fired by John Doyle after 3.5 years because I got engaged to the anchorwoman at the television station across town, and I got fired for a potential breach of security. If you could believe that, I mean today I mean, I guess that would be the biggest lawsuit around. But that's what happened. But because of that firing, I ended up meeting the news director across town who ended up becoming the first news director at the CNN, the first brand new CNN bureau here in Los Angeles who hired me which brought me to Los Angeles, where I met the woman that I actually married, not the anchorwoman and had been with her for ever since, but She suggested. Why don't you try writing a screenplay? So I did And that allowed me to stay in Los Angeles. So I guess you could say Had I not been fired Lo those many years ago, I wouldn't be in l A and I would have had all those great credits that you just mentioned. So I guess sometimes bad things lead to good results. And and by the way on that story about Europe, your engagement I was following it from a distance because I'd already moved off to spoke hand for a job there and I remember following it in the distance. And you said when you went to tow her news director, I think his response was what come over for dinner. Yeah, basically and I got hired, uh, immediately at her station. But, you know, there are very few relationships that are new. And this one was new, Uh, that can stand that kind of just horrible tension. I mean, it was insane at that moment, and this is a long, long time ago, But Johnny Carson was still on the air and he was making jokes about me. I was the TV Romeo if you will, and he was just too much for a young relationship. Um and we we weren't able T stay together. But as I said, uh, it was this strange thing that I've been thinking about lately is that John Doyle, that news director has passed away and, well, many people are are singing his praises. Thinking about what a wonderful break he gave them. Hey, did give me a wonderful break, but he also gave did one of the worst things that ever happened in my life to me. So who knows? It's Zsa Mixed balance sheet in life and things happen. So there you go. And you ended up is one of the first correspondents for this brand new network called CNN that is still around today and still producing a news product. They will they. It's interesting that you say that, but yes, absolutely true. What happened back then was that CNN was not even in existence. When I first heard about it. It was when this news bureau chief called me and said, There's this new thing starting. I guess Ted Turner's gonna have 24 7 news. You want to come and work for us, So I at that point was anchoring in Tucson, Arizona, and I said, Okay, I'll do it and he said, But you gotta get here next week, so I had to quit. Basically, with no notice, which wasn't a very good thing to do. I came to CNN and I asked my new guy Would they think of my audition tape back in Atlanta? He said. I never showed. Don't worry about that. I burned every bridge to come to L A and all my chips were in the middle. The table. I was all in on CNN. It was a fascinating time, though, because all the rules were being made. For the first time we would go jockey for position with other Los Angeles news crews to cover things, and right now, CNN would get a very prominent position, if not the best position in the camera pool. But at that time, I was the guy getting stuck with the far right side and or the far left. Whether that's almost political. I didn't mean it that way. But I was getting stuck with the bad camera positions because We'll call this the chicken noodle network back then they didn't even know what to make of it. But I gotta tell you, nothing was better for me as a screenwriter than those years that CNN because I met thousands of people on either the best day of their lives or the worst day of their lives. It seemed like and I met a lot of famous people, and I really got to understand the way the world works, and it was a fabulous and really enduring experience for me. By the way, I'm talking to you on a fairly historic day, because you just mentioned to me that the latest dump of JFK documents has come out. And obviously you haven't read on the other 19,000 new documents, But But that's something that's also an interest of yours. Fascinating. Ah, you know my generation we We grew up hearing about JFK at a very young age, of course, but I've always been intrigued by the assassination. I I'll just put my thoughts out there clearly to me. Lee Harvey Oswald. They'd be shot at the president did not act alone. This was a conspiracy. The only question is who was involved in the conspiracy for my money. I'd be in written a book about it is you as you mentioned it's called, surrounded by enemies. What if Kennedy survived Alice It's a alternate history novel about what would have happened if JFK had survived the Dallas attack. But this document dump That has Got underway today should complete the documents that have been held by the government all these years on it's been a number of years since JFK was killed, whether they'll solve it or not, I think remains to be seen. But I do think the overall tone of all the documents should at least convince people That it probably was a conspiracy. And I would hope that history books would at least record that the question that historians will probably fight about for years and years is who was responsible ultimately, but again it those documents have been out a couple of hours is we're talking maybe even only a few minutes and I haven't I don't read that fast. So I can't tell you whether the smoking gun literally is in those documents or not. I'm talking to my friend of about 40 years now. Bryce Zabel, who Started as a television reporter and anchor and now works in Hollywood as a screenwriter as a producer, is a director and is a book author. We're going to talk about your beetles book here in just a moment, but I want to give you your do you've had a lot of successful product projects in Hollywood that people would recognize. Well, actually, I'd like to buy for Kate that I had a lot of successful projects in Hollywood..

"And that's why Islam in will funds in our particular group like Muslim women is particularly not understood. So. There's so much there. There's So much. You only got two more than we can. Okay. So Zabel I'll start with you what faith other than your own has had the greatest impact on you good or bad honestly. It might not be popular thing for for other Muslim people listening but I am very much influenced by eastern cultures like the concept of just generically for spirituality I'm a big practitioner of yoga meditation. I don't necessarily believe that they're mutually exclusive to a slum I. Believe when you know I've talked about this in passing, you know as we have similar but different views the concept of prayer for instance, a slam like we're obligated to pray five times. A day I don't believe that I have to pray five times a day because God is going to get mad at me. If I don't I believe God understands that my soul needs to take a break five times a day and and have a form of reconnection introspection and sometimes I'm rushing to pretend like I'm not but a lot of the times especially nowadays when there's so much going on at allows me to take a few minutes to sit. Like kind of what you said in the beginning like sit and react verses or sit in and listen versus reacting and I believe that that's a very similar to some of the eastern traditions that I've been reading about an we. We all kind of need to have a little bit of that. So I I probably war on the side of spiritual even though I'm a very practicing Muslim. Here turn quakers. quakers have influenced me I would say probably revolutionized my thought in the last four years because. Naturally after twenty sixteen I think I spent. Those days in November like on the couch eating pan of brownies like ensure. And I'm like, what am I going to do like what am I gonNa do and it was the women's march rolled around and I was like I have skillset I'm a physician I can go and I can give water to people I can treat dehydration. Let me figure it out. And the person who was I was directed to is you know by birth he was born a quaker. And is this really revolutionary person who has literally been arrested put his life. On the line in order to fight for the oppressed and data, we have a lot of native Americans where I live. We have a lot of non English speakers where I live and he has been helping them for years and years and years to the point that now all of the street.

Practical AI Procurement with Shane Zabel of Raytheon
"On the topic of buying procuring. Ai How how. How do you think you know? From a vendor perspective. I think could be a big consulting firm it could be a hot silicon valley startup. Whatever the case may be could be? IBM How should business decision leaders. Here's a decision makers think about screening vendors deciding on vendors. What a good ways to think about that? One Way I think of that is the standard make by it kind of decision. So if you've if you've got a business strategy in AI technology strategy and you've broken that down into the elements and you kind of understand what what type of capabilities in technology we need to develop. You're going to make a decision in terms of what should you build in house and what you outsource. So that's where we're really starts is understanding within the I field. What are the parts that that you want to build internally? Where do you think your your key? discriminators are going to be. And what are the parts that You do not want to invest internally and you may be better off outsourcing to vendor so then at that point there's a there's a lot of vendors in the space right now and there are you know and which is a good thing it gives you a lot of opportunities but you have to be able to filter through it and so it can be challenging to even understand understand what the entire market is who are all the players typically if you have an ai organization that you've spun up that would be one of the roles that they should have is understanding understanding what the commercial market is And vetting going out meeting vendors understanding the vendors and doing the initial heading for it and that should be aligned because the the market space is so big that should be aligned to that original discussion. About what parts of the market are you looking to partner with. and which ones are you you know building internally and and so that that kind of decides what companies that you want to go after and then it's just your standard vendor vetting process that you'll go through typically you'll be. He introduced to accompany. You'll set up an initial discussion Sometimes it helps to get some type of non disclosure agreement in place if you if they passed the first test of back and then then you can go into more technical details and and typically both your business teams in your Engineer your technology teams can have those further discussions wins. And and then it's you know goes from there depends on whether you're looking at us a supplier or whether it's a partner and I don't you know to some extent of that that whole make by question isn't really different than the AM L. World. It's just the technologies a little bit different. I think yes. There's still does you have to be the the the context on the technology but I've definitely heard a lot of takes on. He build by side of things certainly have our own opinions here But I'd be interested. Sit in your thoughts. It sounds like for you. There's there's maybe sort of a core way of thinking about that. I doesn't necessarily vary you kind of brought it up very briefly mentioned you know. Is this really your key distinction. You know something you want to build in houses a core capability. That's going to differentiate you and be what your your business really leans on as like a critical capability ability so to speak on. This is something you don't want to invest in. Maybe you could put a little bit more color around that you know how you think about build versus buy at a high level and why it's not that different from from other technology. Yeah so I guess the way to the thing about it is if your business strategy and you're a technology strategy figuring out where you fit in the market Arken space and and what is it that. What part of that market space do you WANNA be mortgage leading in? And there's a lot of components to ai and machine learning and you may not want to tackle the most so so one example would be your data strategy If you are not in if you're selling some type of marketing product or you're selling some type of you know Engineering Service or something like that. You don't you don't WanNa be in the development of a data lake Business right you. Don't WanNa go off and build your our own daily technology. That might be a great place to partner. Because that's not where your core discriminator is. It's an enabling technology that you have to have but it's not something that you're going to go out and build you know from a data. Data Lake frameworks perspective. You'RE NOT GONNA go build a business around it so that might be an area that you would want to start thinking about. Maybe I need to go find a supplier partner on the data lakeside. Whereas you know in some other areas that you might look out with you look at the end to end a I? Kind of chain. You'll focus in on on a few of those areas that you might Might WanNa be a discriminator and you and you may not from technology perspective for some organizations you you may not you may WanNa partner for all of the technology and that you're discriminators maybe as some type of integrator or maybe you're up your packaging peace so it's hard to say specifically typically you know it really depends on the specifics of your business. What are you going after? What do you want to be good at and then going out and finding partners that provide the capabilities that we need to pull together in order to provide those services so sort of Hugh you mentioned just? I'll put a little bit more color on this pivot right into the next question is around. What do you want to be good at is that is that a retake that to to understand that sort of if something is something that we want to be good at all? We really want to be good at. Let's say understanding Customer's preferences for these fashion products that they're they're kind of related correlations of sort of what people purchase when they like this thing like this other thing. Are you saying. There's a shot that that might lead us more in the direction of developing our own kind of recommendation and customer understanding models versus leveraging recommendation. I'm in Dacian Vendor X.. Or wires said is that sort of a potential leaning based on on on what you're saying. I JUST WANNA make sure I'm digesting the idea. Yeah I think that's that's a good analogy. So if we take that case if your if Your Business was understanding customer preferences you might want to be very good at understanding. The psychology of the customers is. You don't really want to be very good at understanding products You might be one be very good at having the data scientists who can do the modeling around that at that point you may go off and develop develop specific algorithms for it potentially if the if the open source algorithms aren't good enough for it and in that case. Maybe you don't want to your. You're you're focused purely on cloud infrastructure right. That's that's not where you're going to add value to so you might go off and partner with a company that can go off and handle your cloud part of it. That's an enabling the technology that'd be required for you to go do machine learning towards customer market preference. But you'd outsource that because you want to focus your energy research and development. What's your talent development around those other algorithm ICK areas around those data understanding areas around the customer understanding areas and those maybe would be areas that you wouldn't want to go off an outsource because that's court here company and that's that's where you want to build your core discriminators at so that's kind of that that that what does the term discriminators actually just something? I haven't heard people use that particular word but I now am sort of understanding and context What you what you meant by that and I guess that tort takes us into our second major question here which is around getting into the proof of concept a lot of Peo sees in the enterprise world right now are not really leaving? POC THE OC land. They're not leaving the sandbox on kind of coming into reality. Maybe sometimes it's because to your advice. They haven't they haven't yet built that internal Lehai capability that you mentioned. That really understands the market knows who to talk to who not to talk to. What would be worthwhile or a waste of time but if you were to talk about maybe going about? POC's the the right way. Let's just say maybe I do find a partner. Maybe it's it's somebody works on fraud models you know I'm that I'm that online fashion retailer. I don't really want to get good at detecting fraud and it's not my business. My business is selling you know necklaces and earrings. Let's say in that case. Maybe I I go into a POC. There's clearly a raw kind of kind of a right. It says to have Sarong set of steps or right understand wrong way to understand it about setting up a POC for success so we have our best chance of turning into something real. How would you explain doing doing it? Well as opposed to the common pitfalls you see I typically when I look at P. O. C.'s. I almost don't think of them as being a direct path to production auction. Ai and machine learning to put it into production requires a whole infrastructure. It requires process. There's a big gap between companies. He's they can build prototypes or individuals. That can prototype on a laptop and companies that can deploy that and maintain those models in operation yet. Yeah that you've got it you have to have your business processes around it you have to. You have to understand model testing. There's there's a whole series of capabilities that that are required for production machine learning that are not required there for so so what. POC's are good at is a couple of things right. They're very good that Education and understanding getting into the data and understanding what you really have. And where's the real potential business benefit. They're very good at use case. Space exploration right towards that business side. But at some point you're going to make a decision. Do I want to transition to this and ops into into operations and with the understanding that there is a there is potentially a significant investment of time and resources that's going to be required to Redo the POC or or leveraged bridged POC and extended into a production model and so at the end of a POC. You I would recommend that you have your your profit and loss people all your organization take a look at it. Have your technology team make an estimate. Here's what it would take in order to put this into production and then make a return on investment decision. Asian at that point is is this something worth putting into production and maybe halfway through you should have checkpoints in your pse should be continuously asking this question is this worth continuing wing or not and you may have to do multiple.

"An auspicious night for Bryce able to be here Sean and Phil from K. K. O. H. in Reno I have sent the following to me it is a follow up. experts say a colorful flash of light that lit up the entire north eastern western sky may have been get this a dying satellite or chunk of space rock. people from San Francisco to New Mexico reported seeing the mysterious greenish yellow flash shortly before nine last night witnesses say it lasted only seconds but was intensely bright. an astronomer at the Griffiths Griffith park observatory says the flash probably was caused by space debris burning up as it entered the atmosphere John Moseley's as this is probably the biggest flash they've seen in two years. he said the meteor was probably a crumbly piece of asteroid or possibly a fragment of a comet. but Frank o'donnell a spokesman for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena says it also might have been a falling satellites. so that's the real world folks going on tonight once again here is Bryce Zabel Bryce it could've been something else to cut it well I I'm I'm coming up with my own theories what do you think it is. pods. parts price parts okay one thing I'm enjoying it I'm loving help this the word.

"You must send this back you know price I'm not going to send it back. doggone it or just keep for them because I. what to do it's all wonderful souvenir price that's right they can't west of the Rockies you're on the air with Bryce Zabel good morning art and bright hi where are you in Los Angeles this is John yes John congratulations on your theory thanks very much were all primed and ready for this very timely. and this is something that you might want to incorporate I've been kind of nagging are a little bit about a cold three four times and talk to about this mac mate okay in the time life series the art of warfare for the century of war sure there is a tape that is called Gulf War and the future. and there is a fuel air explosion that happened on that tape okay and around the fuel air explosion oh yes there are things that appear as spears but may be high resolution probes that appear around it and I believe it's the original military high speed tape of the of the first of them. and if you can get that tape and then slow down and stop it one frame at a time you can see the slayer's healthy appear and things go past them and they don't mobile and then they disappear not well I'm I'll tell it now say what I've said this man previously and that is fuel air explosion is an incredibly violent event and so that there would be anomalies on the film scene at the edge of that explosion with the. well you're in a video if you if you get too bright balloons out and I have a feeling that's what he's saying you never know now course priority use that on the show it would probably not rise to the level of special effects and people would say I was tripping out on the special effects. so so I I'd have to do something fake to make people believe it was real that's the kind of world we live in is that really take the scene or some of the scenes with the ganglion so very expensive to do well they are very time consuming because the the ganglion seen that then the the pilot for example took did the better part of two full days to should have been a feature I'm sure they were shot on it for two weeks but this is TV and we shot for two days and it involves public it involves you know but word of all different kinds of puppets and in some cases the stuff requires computer generated effects and post and sound design and and there's all kinds of little tricks you do to make it make it work and you know that the rule of thumb in in doing these effects is that if you have to hold it together with chewing gum and baling wire for the for the five seconds that you need the shot that's all that matters is it just needs to look good in that one moment that's right and and I think we were relatively successful with that one where I mean did you were just where does where to get the the title dark skies and what does it mean if anything well I I give Brent the the credit for that one I was working on a series that was they had a lot of the pre season what dark skies has become and when Brent nine thirty throwing things around one day talking about UFOs he called me the next day his wife was my assistant at the time and he called into words that the total price to think about dark skies and he can use it if you want the course that led to our partnership and and dark skies for us now has taken on dark skies means the resistance that begins to form in nineteen ninety six after a TV series is put on there yes I see okay so in your in the first episode you saw John longer argues that with Jesse Marcel where he was the code words that got him inside so it was the code word yes right by Bobby Kennedy that's. right. have you personally ever seen a UFO you know it's interesting that you say that because I I I understand that when Spielberg was asked those questions after close encounters he used to say it was too personal for him to talk about it instead of answering the no and and I have and I'd love to have some kind of live answer but the truth is I've I've seen I've seen my share of lights in the sky that I think everybody has seen and I would describe the likelihood of all the things I have seen that they were just you know identifiable event to be very high so I haven't seen it would be a good sighting I do however have a number of people who I consider to be good solid witnesses and some friends and some just the people that I've come to know who have seen things much more up close and personal and and they were very real to them totally hooked for Toby Hooper for example who directed the pilot saw your basic cigar shaped UFO in Texas I think over twenty years ago and it was anything but just a light in the sky it'll be described as being the real deal I mean yeah Bryce I saw the real deal okay that close to a hundred and fifty feet above my head when I was forty eight years old I've never seen another thing like you some lights in this guy's. maybe a few green fireballs meteors whatever. but Bryce I saw something that came directly over my head and with my wife was there as well and we pondered for sometime after we saw it and I'd write her on the air right with me and made her validate what I was saying it was a close call and I didn't know whether I want to go on there and tell everybody what I saw or not but it changed my life well how could it not change your life you see something like that and you say no one's telling us about these things and there it is and I let's face it you may not trust my account of something but you trust your own account you trust your own eyes yes and your life could never be the same after an event like that well you know one of two things you know either our government has things that are generations beyond what they had met me any generations or it's something from elsewhere one of the two east of the Rockies you're on the air with Bryce Zabel high yes. Howard in rugby North Korea hello there yes and great show and our day I would just have a quick what if for yeah for me well I've got a guest service so you have all that but. okay I guess he just decided not ask west of the Rockies you're on the air with Bryce Zabel high all good morning art hello good morning bright line in Denver Colorado few quick comments and I'll get off the line first what to give a very intelligent show on your hand so very good thank you very much and second of all I like the JFK movie feel the the faction type of feel that the show has and a third of all try not to get out of the sixties too fast I enjoy the sixties and also when you get into the seventies I hope you can now work in the UFO influence on disco music. you know you're not the first person my friend this is to bring up the disco connection so we could hardly miss that out well you know you're right about the sixties we are not going to work we're moving on a collision course with new year's eve nineteen ninety nine for what will amount to let's see if this is that we're coming up with new years ninety six so and three years from now will be arriving there so that that's our time frame we plan to spend this season enough sixty four sixty five and potentially getting in the sixty six and the next season we we plan to do basically the late sixties through the end of Watergate terrific well on your way out of it fortunately ratings has a great deal to do with the success so I hope that everyone.
Europe's last-ditch attempt to save Iran nuclear deal
"Iran has announced. It's going to start a weapons-grade. Plutonium plant aunt this comes after a last ditch attempt was made to save the Tehran nuclear deal yesterday Britain France Germany Russia and China met in Vienna to discuss the joint comprehensive plan of Action The J. C. P. O. a forged in two thousand MM fifteen and put at risk when Donald Trump withdrew the U._s. from it in May last year since then Washington has reimposed punishing sanctions against Tehran Iran has disregarded limits the deal set on its nuclear program and now says it will escalate the program well here to tell us more is David Pacheco's who is author of nuclear Iran the birth of an atomic state David. Thanks for joining us. Do we know how this meeting unfolded. It's very very good to be here this morning. <hes> I mean things are still ongoing but early signs of positive. The key takeaway keeping to understand about this meeting is that everybody wants it to succeed. Nobody wants at this meeting. which is the five <hes> I mean the nuclear deal with Iran and the P five plus one? That's the Security Council plus Germany. Everyone is in that room except the United States and everyone where on one side and the security remaining Security Council plus Germany one bed to be breakthrough they want these negotiate succeed so far we've heard about you know tend to cautious optimism <hes> but the fact remains that without American the rumors gains would be very difficult to make a real breakthrough but what about these reports that the talks has in fact failed Iran is pushing forward with its nuclear enrichment program like I mean Iran is like heavily signaling hair. <hes> Iran obviously doesn't mean he's pulling the lines tale. It's trying to get the the you know the European the Chinese he's an Russians to to help them to try and go back the guys Jackie Zabel but I would say that the talks failed. I mean we're still I'm still hearing you know tentatively positive stuff Iran gangs what Iran does and his gang as say the lion's tail and undo what Kansas your attention to itself and grand standards and people in the hines I mean this is a very old boy to understand globally while he's doing. It's for domestic appeal so what he wants to do is eventually goes to the shaking table and <hes> give concessions and in order to do that. It has to be seen to be standing up to the Great Satan in little safer note. Whatever so we very much sort of Iran type phase of STIGMATA signaling negotiation so we know that the relationship between Iran and Europe has been and put under further strain after the activities in the state of a mood or in the Strait of all moons British authorities as we know have detained an Iranian oil tanker of the the coast of Gibraltar because of the alleged violations of of European Union sanctions Iranian Union forces impounded a British flagship? Are these incidents being linked to the deal. Oh absolutely I mean there's an immediate context of the wider context so you Iran's seizure of of of the British time <hes> O._B.. With no British citizens on Oh boy is an immediate contents types of Britain seizing of an Iranian tanker Nazir Alter the one of the context this is all about the needs <hes> they want to you know get into sort of Adana with the Europeans I wanted to essentially get going again. They essentially sort of pushing pushing pushing the game of brinkmanship but this is all very much go of getting back to the table and getting those sanctions lifted and getting that deal back in place but unfortunately without the Americans. It's all pretty much academic united our European nations in their desire to save the deal. I mean as Britain faces the the idea of a no deal brexit.

"To the plate. And it's low with another slider wanted to. Torino's is interesting and a lot of ways you can understand why the raise used him as a. Almost like a piggyback starter or sometimes as in in the mix with their openers where he'll follow somebody who starts the game. Because he's got three pitches. But he's he's really a to pitch pitcher. Wanted to he throws Kratz pokes one right centerfield care Meyer hustling, and he's not gonna get two drops basic their practice. I hit with the giants or one out single very defensive swing, but he'll take it. Giants have their first base runner the day. Be Torino's literally to right Anders. It's fastball slider two left. It's fastball splitter, that's it. And he never mixes matches that off-speed stuff. So for each individual hitter. It's just a to pitch approach. Kratz Zabel to get the barrel of the bat on the ball there for the first giants hit a game. Now pomeranz. We'll see if he's Bunning. He is not showing bunny slashes at the first one and hits screamer foul off to the right. On the cow. Raise one giants. Nothing. The strategy can always change for the pitcher up there. Hitched to pitch count to count. Cure Meyer comes way in and shades toward right-center field. The right fielder Garcia is also way in in right against Pomeranz who now squares bought polls the bad back and takes fastball right down the middle for strike too. Well, if you're gonna but that that would be a pitch where you probably would try.

Because James it's all tight one other thing to say, and this is such a travesty truly in two thousand three Paramount Pictures options the song for adult patient into a feature. Honestly, incredible. Honestly, I'm so poor. And this is option feature film guy worked so hard. Still probably have those rights. No, we need to get on that for fifteen years. They're called wrongs. And while was saying wished someone else was hurt. Her feeling my knees. Like feeling the rain, right? So massage gonna play the guests intro backwards. And we'll do the rest. Man. I wonder how many people have tried to jump on that script and found out that the rights were already optioned. Yeah. Well, like, I don't know what's happening because they got David Zabel to adapt it, and then the film was going to focus on two teens from different backgrounds and the social countries, which they find themselves as of April two thousand eight film had been apparently, abandoned or in development, but as April two thousand the film had been made a hundred and five.

"zabel" Discussed on HEY.com - Video Content Marketing Tips
"The next step is the four paragraphs of contents may be time. You're listening say oh, four perils. Why are Nici type all discounts? If I have the same content on the video, okay in Brazil. We have eight million people with don't here. Sorry. How can I say the people? Well, yeah, they're deaf. Or they they're hearing tables, they're they're hearing. Yeah. In Brazil, have eight almost eight million people have all with here Zabel. And so people don't understand what you're saying your video. So discounts is very important for this people. But if you need more advantage for this this content will help the algorithm to understand what your Vida say don't these one is the place that you will write the four or five paragraphs of content with your men, keyword, if our secondary key words and related cured 's. So for example, if a stay of video of cake, the main keyword is chocolate cake. The secondary key word is funnel shackle at cake, and related cured is carrot cake. Take this is a great. This is a great idea of of putting this in paragraph form because I actually do this. I write an accompanying blog posts for each one. And I what I do is. I take the transcription or the captions, and I just turn it into some paragraphs that narrate what I do. But I could really just take that or the first few paragraphs of that. And put that in this descriptions. That's a great idea of something. I'm not doing so great tip. What's the next tip? Yeah. The next the next block is the links that you spoken in the video. Why it's crazy when the people say, hey, click on the description, the links of this video all in description in when you open the description, we don't have the links. It's make all the people crazy. And so take time for review your video and take notes for all the links that. You say because the people go to the description in click, but if you don't have the links that people may be will use your comment box to make some bad words. Maybe unsubscribe your channel. Because this makes people crazy you may links. And you're not feeling that from us by putting in there. And what else? Yeah. And the next one for Ford's blocks is links for all our Vitas offer channel, for example example of the cakes. If you have other vetoes about I don't know about cakes you need to put the links here. But if you have links about other type of food, for example, tacos, it's not really good to put your links of tacos in a video of the cakes. You need to follow the zodda content that people need to follow the new content of cakes. Maybe a sweet, but not changes links for tacos, for example. So this is how you created absurd content. The people follow watch one video of cake. Another video of how you make the cake for kids and other video for how you can make a cake for Christmas rand going. Watching veto per veto. And when people say, Saul three four video you improve your watch time in this better for your channel..
