"Support for this podcast and the following message come from Tito's handmade vodka, born and bred in Austin, Texas. The live music capital of the world. Eighty proof Tito's handmade vodka. Fifth generation Inc. distilled and bottled in Austin, Texas. Happy Friday, everyone from NPR music and also considered. I'm Robyn Hilton. It is new music Friday. Just the happiest day of the week when a whole bunch of great new albums come out. And on this episode we're looking at the essential releases for September twenty. First, it's another busy week for new music. So let's get right to the band metric. Their new album is called art of doubt. Still. Metric is the band. Their new album is art of doubt in the songs die happy and Stephen Thompson of impure music here for this one. Yeah, this is metrics. Twentieth anniversary and metric has spent its entire career and singer. Emily Haines has spent her entire career constantly changing it up was sounding like herself always sounding like themselves, but approaching that sound from a number of different angles Emily Haines, as you know, Robin made these solo records that are devastatingly sad and beautiful, but metric sound is physiology and brighter. But at the same time, if you listen closely to the lyrics in that song, we just heard, you know, she's thinking is this there's this mixture of an upbeat sound and this constant Thrum of melancholy. Underneath that brightness, the previous album was kind of a dance pop record. And this one you can still hear some of that danceable quality to it, but there's a spike, you're kind of just rock and roll. Sound guitars of come raging back on this record. I agree an. And we've had so much melancholy music that reflects the unease that a lot of people have been feeling and I like how they come out swinging with this one. Yeah, absolutely. And at the same time, like Emily Haines knows how to do these. The band is metric and that record is art of doubt. Stephen, let's stay with you for one more record. This is from the band mountain man, and their new album is called magic ship. Do feel the Lenka life is you Pouilly Trump on pedal spin Oldfield again. Artemisia morning Silva Grena dawning head within each aging, jock longline. Despise food in union thing faintest show she nobody knows still looms tender, furry of by reason. Vogel friends. Vaulters do in. Eight from the guy, the phones of sinks appraised today. I strongly five away spiders outside. Families. Made the ocean is choose three Jews, Jews, the actors in choosing, but why itching find the mountain man is the band. Their new album is called magic ship. I think this is just a stunning record. Yeah, boy, I'd not necessarily think that we were going to get another mountain man record like the the kind of emerged in the public consciousness in twenty ten with an elven called made the harbour and that record kind of ran its course Amelia Meath who's one of the three singers when on and formed Sylvan Esso which was at the time kind of a side project and then Soviet took off, right? And I love Sylvan Esso's one of my favorite bands, but I was like, that's kind of a bummer that this mountain man project. The other singers are Alexandra saucer Monning and Molly Sarli just kind of never really heard about them again and clearly there back in this record still has that same lightness. To it. That's same sweetness, those beautiful harmonies, but it feels a little bit more lived in. It's all about the harmonies on on this record and that cappella song, we just heard his called GT and I found their voices the way the recorded so intimately. I found it almost startling and when you've got voices like this, I just kept thinking, man, you can do anything you want in music. You can just get rid of all the instruments and it's just your voice or you. You can layer it with all these dents orchestrations in those voices will still be the center of all. Yeah. If when it stripped down to just those voices, it's amazing how tightly palsy in the band is mountain. Man. Their new album is magic ship. Okay. One more album from you for this week's new music Friday, Stephen, but let's save it for the second half. First, let's go to the jazz pianist Christian sands in his new record facing dragons. The pianist is Christian Sanchez. New record is facing dragons. The song that we're hearing now is called fight for freedom and from WBZ oh, NPR, music contributor nature is here to talk about this when, hey, hey, Robin, for people who are new to Christian sands, tell us who he is and why this is one of the best releases this week. Christian sans is a pianist who jazz fans have been watching for a long time. Actually, he's he's about to turn thirty, but he's been a promising young talent. Basically since his early teens, he was mentored by Dr Billy Taylor really prominent jazz educator and the former jazz head at the Kennedy Center. And he was really kind of touched as like, this is the bright young talent who's going to preserve the tradition and you know someone to watch. So what's been interesting is watching him. If all not only into a proficient and assured steward of the jazz tradition, but also someone who's sort of stretching and really expressing contemporary ideal as well. Yeah, I kept thinking as I was listening to this that he manages brilliantly to keep his feet planted in both the past in the future. Absolutely. Yeah. You know, his first album was released last year and it was titled reach. And I think that was a real sort of declaration in that one word and this one does much the same thing. But without such a burden of agenda, you know, it's like he doesn't really. He doesn't really need to make that point anymore. You know, the whole album is anchored in his trio, his working trio with Yasushi nakimora on bass and drum Jennings on drums and they play. It's a sort of hard bop groove that that you'd maybe would make you think of art Blakey and the jazz messengers. And you know, other really soulful hard hitting jazz groups from, let's say, the early. Sixties or roughly that period. But it really doesn't feel like music that was trapped in amber or or sprung out of a time capsule fills, it feels pretty convincingly now, and that musician is Christian. Sands. The jazz pianist Christian Santa's new record is facing dragons. Thanks, Nate. Thanks Robin from Christian. Let's go to the Atlanta rapper known as father and his new album. Awful swim. Pass fast day has weighing. Fame as may. Yeah. Estra c. so stressful. Godly came along. But I just keep on changing topics. Two. Tweak, it must be bad. The wrapper is father. The album is awful swim, and this is called throw it and NPR music surrounding Carmichael back for this one will this father's fourth project and he's becoming something of a season oddity. There's a certain amount of irony you here in father's music. And I mean, even down to the independent label and collective that he started his called awful records, which you know, I think there's a lot there is so much maisy music and credible artists coming out of Atlanta. Where does he fit into the to that bigger picture? He's like one of these artists who really kinda helped launch rep soundcloud era with his first project which was called young hot ebony. But if you think of trap rap specifically being infatuated with drug culture and money and six, you can kinda think of father as being more inspired by like video games and anime and steel six. You know, I think if you try to take him too seriously or to literally you end up missing kind of the core of of what he's trying to do, which for one thing, it has a lot of humor, a lot of personality and you know, and he really represents a slice of Atlanta culturally and artistically that that I think doesn't get paid enough attention to fathers the wrapper from Atlanta. His new record is awful swim. Thanks writing. Thank you, Robin, we still have a handful of albums. We want to talk about for this week's new music Friday, but we need to take a short break and we'll be right back. This message comes from NPR sponsor. Indeed.

Podcast, terms conditions and quality standards apply its new music Friday from all songs considered. I'm Robyn Hilton and we're looking at the best albums out on September twenty. First, we kick off the second half of the show with a new record from prince or rather the prince estate. It's called piano and a microphone nineteen Eighty-three coal, coffee, and cocaine. Last time baby. Nasscom. All. Go cover game. Oh, of the mainland. That. It is of course prince and the album is piano and a microphone nineteen Eighty-three and his exactly what the name suggests. It's prince at the piano with a microphone in nineteen Eighty-three and powers. You're actually here in DC this week. I am this one anytime a beloved artist who's passed away anytime use it comes out after they've died. I always have the sort of sinking feeling like how they're rating the archives and it's a money grab, and but this album is genuinely amazing. It is and it's pose very well for Princess legacy as the Princess state is going to share it with us. I think because piano microphone nineteen Ninety-three is very coherent document. It's not just a bunch of slap together demos of songs. We already know right in this fairly brief span of time. I mean, the records not very long, it's it really tells a story from the song selections to the way his piano playing is to. The way you can follow his thought processes. He jumps from one song to another all the tracks run together, and it really does feel like a stream of consciousness on his part like, oh this. Oh, that makes me think of this, and they'll play this and I love hearing him just sort of mess around exactly. You know, co, coffee and cocaine, one of the unreleased tracks you hear prince using what he called his Jamie Starboy, which is sort of some people call it like his miles Davis voices and some prince fans speculate that that's because he intended that song for the time. You know the group that Moore stay fronted that prince masterminded the Princess day is it's very complicated. It's all very unsettled of, but I'm wondering, you know, as a superfan, how you reconcile getting what is I think this is just a gift of a record with the fact that we knew prince himself didn't want a lot of the stuff out there. I've thought about this and I've thought about this with a lot of artists. I love who are no longer with us, but my core field. Feeling is that when at artists leaves in their earthly form, they become part of the DNA ever shared culture and their work exists for the ages. In this case, it feels like a private moment, but it doesn't feel like a violation. One of the gifts that prince gave us that has changed form after his passing is this ability to immerse in his process. So I think a record like this, which really allows us into that processes is a very valuable artifact. It's amazing that it's all there in the heart soul. In my of one man sitting at a piano, the album is Pinot and a microphone nineteen Eighty-three from prince. Thank San. Thank you from prince. Let's go to the musician, Richard swift and his new solo album. The heck's. The artist is Richard swift. His new album is called the heck's, and this song is called selfish math in PR. Music's LARs Guttridge here for this one. He learns, hey, Robin, Richard swift, a much beloved artists, of course, died back in July, just forty one years old, but for people who don't know him. He was the secret weapon to a lot of great bands. Richard swift was a producer for many at the great indie rock record the last decade. Plus he worked with the shins our back and the black keys, Valerie, June, Nathaniel rate, lift Damien, trotto Sharon van and like, and I'm barely scratching the surface what he did, but I, I knew him as a solo artist back in two thousand two. He released a seven on this freckled label. I love called Bella blue music, and that was the time when I was just buying everything that I could from this record label. And he just had this sonic vision that I hadn't heard before this rhetoric to the future sound. He left everything from like doo-wop to captain p heart to vote Diddley. He loved old sounds, but he wanted to make them feel remarkably current. He suffered from depression and anxiety, and he had a drinking problem that ultimately led to his death. He addresses all of that on this record. Any speaks to the family that he left behind and kind of like most heartbreakingly his three children provide backing vocals on a few these tracks and to them happened to be about family members of his that also passed one song called Wendy was about Richard Swiss mother and other one is called sister song about Richard Swiss sister, and they died like right after other. And it's a lot to take in he sings quite a bit in the first part of this album about how he's going to hold on, and he is he is going to make it through this. But there seems to be this turn at some point in it where he begins to realize that he is near. During the end of his life. So this record closes with a song called September twenty. And the family says that this is the final song that he ever wrote. He says, the lurks go. When I go, I'll go out alone. Everybody knows OB safe in my home death to us part sickness and health made a plan. Fixing myself. Try not to drink from poison. Well, slip away asleep in my car, all the angels sing case Rosser. Aw death to us part sickness and health. You're such a unique voice in the ear for music, and I already miss him a lot. The record from Richard swift is called the heck's LARs. Let's do one more album that I know you're loving this week. It's the artist Lonnie Hawley, and his new record is called myth. Now. This is the artist Lonnie Holly, his new record is miss and that's spelled m. i. t. h. i. full disclosure, I'm new to Lonnie Holly, and I found this album to be a challenging, listen at times, but the more I dug into his story and some of what's behind his music. He's really a fascinating guy. His first art is not music. Here's kind of discovered in the late seventies early eighties for being a visual artists specifically in found art Hewitt, basically find junk and Hewitt make something out of it. That was very beautiful. And so his, his art comes out of like these very desperate places, but they're often incredibly beautiful, but it wasn't until twenty twelve that he released zone music, and he was sixty two years old. The story as it's told as he tells is he was one of twenty seven children and has fifteen children. Yeah, he became a. Fifteen years fifteen children of his own. He says he was when he was only four years old. His adopted mother traded him for a bottle of whiskey got a while that he, he was run over by car and pronounced brain dead, but recovered from that. And now he here he is, as you said, very late in his life, making music. And those first recordings were just him in like a tape recorder him just kind of improvising, whatever phrases came to mind. And I, I got to see him at a Smithsonian a couple years ago Islas levitating afterwards because the way that the cellist who's with them that they've been so Lee was was responding to his words into his streaming unique, piano playing style with such tenderness and dexterity and on this record in particular, you hear that a lot more because he actually that backing band is largely made up of jazz improvisers. Very cool. And and one that's worth spending a lot of time with you. Really need to spend a lot of time with this one. I think to pre ate everything that's going on and the album is myth MIT h by the artist Lonnie Holly. Thanks LARs. Thanks for. We've got one more album to talk about for this week's new music Friday, but there are a few other notable releases for September twenty first that I want to mention the Lupe fiasco album. Druggists wave originally scheduled for September twenty eighth. It's been pushed up a week in is out today as is Christine and the Queens New album. Chris, the Brock Hampton album iridescence Brock, Hamptons. Iridescence is out today. It's their I in a neutral g called the best years of our lives. The band mutual benefit has a new record out today called thunder, follows the light and finally liars. The ban liars has a new album called titles with the word fountain. All right. Our last album for this week's new music Friday comes from the band villagers. It's called the art of pretending to swim. Span. The band is villagers, the new album is the art of pretending swim Stephen Thompson back for this one. The song we're listening to call the gin and this is Connor O'Brien, a singer from Ireland. Yeah, it's really interesting if you go through the NPR music archives, you can find Connor O'Brien's tiny desk concert, and it's just him in an acoustic guitar. And he's got this great voice and you can tell the songcraft is all there and you're like, wow, this is a really nice singer songwriter and the records he's made since have gone down all these side roads and taking all these hairpin turns and you hear the embellishing this kind of sense of wandering without getting lost right into this adventure snus to his sound where he's always kind of reaching beyond what you think of when you think of a singer songwriter. And so this record is really one that you can get lost in his trajectory and the trajectory of villagers, kind of, you know what kind of reminds me of the December, assists sure you know where he starts. They start off. Making these sort of gently strummed coup stick and Har full stroke ballads. And then there's like a concept album and then suddenly prog rock rice intially, you know, and he does a lot of soul searching on this one to a lot of Conor. O'Brian does trying to figure out who he is and what his places in the world. There's kind of recurring motifs and a lot of the songs about like reading signs from the universe and figuring out what you can and can't control. And so it is kind of soul-searching record to match the adventurism. That's in the sound. The band is village IRS and their new album. I think one of the best I've ever done is called the art, pretending to swim.

Io Slash leadership. That's Geo Co dot co Slash Ashley Leadership to get started now before we dive into this edition of Leadership Espresso Shot. I'd like to share a wonderful comment. I got from another listener of this podcast Erin Erin Clinic High Tanveer. I lead the leadership development program here at Audi of America designed to help our dealership. General Manager is become better leaders. I am a big Fan of the leadership is cafe and have recommended it to our GM's on multiple occasions looking forward to more insights from you yeah I have to say while it's great to hear from one of my listeners the reason why I wanted to share errands common because it got us talking about his work and he shared with me situation. He wanted my insights on given how it's something that I've been asked many times before by other leaders. I figured it would make a great topic to share on this podcast so let's get at it and brew another leadership espresso shot so Aaron shared with me how he took one hundred of their top. GM's for a two day Leadership Development Summit that address topics topics and issues that were of interest to his team. They also have several Ellen de portals where they offered articles videos podcasts which Aaron told me also includes this one to supplement the training session the challenges having now though is how to make sure these new insights are applied and not lost when in these leaders returned to the hectic pace of their everyday work and more importantly. How can you keep them engaged in wanting to learn even more when Aaron aren't asked me this question. I asked if I could share his story because it's a question I've been asked many times over the years when giving keynotes corporate trainings in fact it's one of the reasons one of my leadership keynotes deals with how leaders can shift from simply training employees to creating a continuous learning environment in their workplace so I know there's as many of you out there who are also dealing with this issue as well so what I'd like to do is share with you. Some simple steps that you can take right now that will help make the new the skills and insights. You learn stick to start off. Let me give you a little context to help frame these steps in their book made to stick chip and Dan Heath present. This idea that a sticky idea is something that's understood. It's remembered and it changes something now while their book was about how how to make what you communicate stick with your audience. I think we can all agree that when we learn new skills or insights we wanted to be something that's understood that that we remember it and that it ends up changing the way we work continuing with chip and Dan's book they describe how they are six principles behind what makes an idea sticky eighty and these six principles are simplicity unexpectedness concreteness credibility emotions and stories now while they say you don't necessarily need all six principals to make your message stick. I want to offer you three steps. You can take that will employ the six principles again if we go back to the problem. Erin shared one which other leaders have also asked me about the challenge we face when it comes comes to training or going to a conference to learn new insights to improve the way we lead is why were there we could see the value of these approaches but but soon after we returned to our workplaces these new insights often fade away as we return to the routines of our day to day work lies so the first step you need take is one that. I often get my audiences to do at the end of my talks and that is to identify one simple change. You'll make based on what what you've just learned now. This one thing you choose has to contain two characteristics. I it has to be something. You can start doing now. With these this and second it has to be something that's personally meaningful. The reason stems from the work of two different researchers Stafford behavioral scientists scientists. BJ Fog who found that the key to changing behavior is taking small steps and Harvard Professor Teresa Mobley who was the second guest to appear on on this podcast who found in her research that making progress on personally meaningful goals leads to enduring success and happiness on the job in other words. You want to focus on applying a new behavior or skill. You've learned on something that matters to you you so that this becomes something that you don't have to do but it's something you want to do and this that lines up with the sticky principle support of simplicity as we're focusing on one specific thing that we can do right now that will improve our work in personally meaningful fashion this also ties into the emotion principle because as chip and Dan right this sticky principle is driven by answering the question of what's in it for me me which you've already answered by this exercise of picking that one simple change you want to make thanks to what you've learned so now that you have this one simple behavior or skill in mine the obvious question becomes. How do you make sure you apply it every day. Well that's the next step and for for this. We're going to use the example of very successful person and one of my favorite comedians Jerry Seinfeld well. Let's start the insanity now. It doesn't matter whether you like it or not as this has nothing to do with his sense of humor but more to do with what he's identified as being the key to his success comedian Brad Isaac Isic once as Seinfeld for tips on what he could do to improve his success at comedy and Seinfeld told him that what he needed to do was to commit to writing every everyday because writing jokes every day would help him hone his craft. Now what's the Real Jim in the story is what Seinfeld told Isaac as being how he pushes himself to write every day especially when he doesn't want to basically what Seinfeld does is. He gets a wall calendar that shows every every day of the year and every day that he writes he puts a red X. in the box for that day once he's done that for a couple of days he's created a chain of XS on this calendar and as Seinfeld told Isaac you like seeing that chain especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job is to not break the chain now the reason why this is a great strategy for anyone to us is because it embraces braces something that I'm sure you've all heard and read about gamification as Seinfeld says himself he transformed the task of writing into would game where his only job is to not break the chain now. You don't need to get a three hundred sixty five day wall counter for your office us but what you need to do is get a notebook that you use a journal to just write a quick note of what you did to practice this new behavior or skill the reason why is because you need to be able to visually see this chain growing which is critical for this to work because this allows allows you to shift from focusing on how well you apply this new behavior or skill on a given day to the process of applying it regularly elite and consistently towards making it a habit going back to the principles of making things stick you can see that this step ties into the principle of of concrete nece as you can see visually for yourself how you've applied this new behavior or skill on a given day and also links to the principle of credibility because as you re back how you apply this new behavior or skill and not qualifying how good are bad you were at it you can. I can see how this new behavior or skill can be used successfully everyday and hopefully also noticing some positive benefits growing along on with and this leads to my last step that will help make those new behaviors and skills you've learned stick and this one revolves around one of the points. I share my keynote talk on how the shift from training people to continuously improving talent and that is you need to treat learning as shared experience now to help illustrate rate the value of this step. I WANNA share a story about one of the leaders. I wrote about in my book Leadership Vertigo. Billy Taylor was the plant manager for the Goodyear Vale Plant. When he joined the plant? It was one of the most poorly performing appliances goodyear and was at risk of being closed within two. Oh Years Taylor transformed it into one of the top performing manufacturing plants a good year and was promoted to an executive role at goodyear while there are many things Taylor did to achieve this outcome. There's one I wanNA share in the context of making our learning stick and that is how he put up information boards throughout the plant that identified which manufacturing team was working on a given product line and the level of output. They were creating now the reason he did this was was not simply to hold the different production teams accountable for their productivity but so that's different teams could learn from one another about what they were doing to improve their performance performance. In fact Taylor facilitated this cross learning between teams by putting up other boards throughout the plant that showcase projects is employs initiated improve the plants productivity and cost effectiveness as a result of the lessons. They learned from one another working on the plant floor. Now remember remember that the first step I told you about was to pick that one behavior or skill that you've learned that you WanNa make stick because you not only know no you can make this a part of your leadership tool kit but also because you know it's going to have a meaningful impact on how you perform your job well well. The wonderful thing of identifying this at the start of this process is that it allows you to not only attain some early wins but you also now have something something of value to share with other leaders in your organization in terms of how they can apply this behavior or skill to improve their leadership and conversely when when they share with you how they apply other behaviors and skills to the way they lead you gain better insights on how you yourself can apply these other behaviors and skills to continue learning and growing the key point. I want you to take note of is that learning can't exist in a vacuum or silo but as I pointed out in the first step it needs to be connected both to why you do what you do and how you go about getting things done in your everyday the day work and again going back to chip and Dan's principles of stickiness we can see how this step clearly ties into that principle of stories in how we're sharing sharing our stories our experiences with learning to improve ourselves but it also ties into the principle of unexpectedness because in en- sharing your lessons learned you stand to gain both new insights into how to build on what you're currently doing as well as where you can start next in that process of applying applying what you've learned now. I know I've given you a lot to think about and a lot to work with and trust me. I have so much I wanted to share in fact in fact when I was writing my notes for this episode. I actually came up with six steps but I wanted to make sure I gave you a good head. Start in this process of making sure you're what new behaviors and skills you've learned really stick besides anything worth doing requires effort on our part along with the drive to see see it through to the end and hopefully with these three simple steps. I've known given you a map to make this change to improve the way you lead but to to do so in a way that makes your new behaviors and skills stick and with that we finish another cup of Leadership Espresso shot.

Radio you do the work you ask the right questions. Perhaps you will get some of my thoughts opinions research. I got some heartaches. I really do golf. Nick Sabin Jim Jim Harbaugh lot going on today the big sports but first we interview fat Chris so Chris Buffets. Yeah can't decide aside. I think think I go breakfast. Buffet definitely add hotel. There's different kinds of buffets right like a hotel. I love a good breakfast buffet at hotel yes but here's what happens to me. At the breakfast buffet. I tend to go the omelette station. I get an Omelette and then they have no room for anything else and I feel forced obligated to eat more because I paid for the buffet where it could have just paid for the omelet probably paid a little bit less us just eating the Omelette done. I usually go omelette the second half of the meal because I use up some of my empty stomach with some of the other stuff and then I don't need to eat the whole Omelette because if I get it I I'm probably gonNA eat the whole Omelette if I do it on the second half. I don't have to eat it all billy lunch dinner breakfast buffet your preference. Wow it's a tough one it really is. It's really just between dinner and breakfast right in service is between lunch and PRAC- really yeah I mean luckily little you know you gotta go back to work. You're you're full. I'm with Chris gets down to breakfast and dinner now but I feel like buffets or not about like nice hearty meals like a little this and that you take a little bit. There's a little little bit of that. I can get a hamburger in lunch buffet and get chicken nuggets and lunch and you get French. Fries could get a hot dog. I could get chicken fingers. I can get chicken strips. I get all kinds of things the lunch buffet dinner buffet feel like it's it's more of a hearty meal. I don't want too much of one thing. I want a little bit of everything right and that's the key to a buffet a little bit of everything. What do you guys think of a Japanese Sushi Buffet? ooh Not bad. I like Chinese Buffet Really Yeah Launch Launch. Clutch down here in south Florida University drive. It's like seven dollars and it's the greatest thing I've ever had in my entire university in Peter's yes that's right near where that explosion happened a couple of weeks really the same shopping center. Did you guys hear about that that you haven't talked about that on air down South Florida. There was a big explosion caused by some gas left on. It's like a gas leak thicke right right by where I used to live right where you live now right yeah. It was less than a mile from my house. My Dad who also lives less than a mile heard the explosion from his house. It was crazy. No one no fatalities in a major explosion. That's incredible incredibly lucky as the buffet though that buffet that brings me back that thing I love that Chinese buffet it's right by their university pita strange turn what he told me. Everyone was okay and there were no casualties. I know some people were injured. It was a terrible thing it really was. I was just wondering. Is that buffet still standing. That's all I was just timing more. The turn of let's talk about the explosion. I want to send them in the ocean. I really kind of right now. You mentioned that shopping center. That's where my mind goes. Let's go out to Chris good. I'm good. I'm good and you oh boy. I'll say that you're good to say you're good but we can move boy. Okay okay. Why don't sound good? I wasn't coming at you. You felt like he was super busy. This morning and you have a lot going on and we should not be wasting the OH boy was. We should not be wasting alison. It's time to get up and say I'm good. I'm great what happened the other day. You said he was super media. Have it here that I don't WanNa revisit it because that's why you said it. You guys weren't in here right after he said it. He said I was defending it. What do you mean why was I mean I was going for the joke? I'm sorry forgive me. I'm sorry listen Dan. Dan sent you out to the ocean. After he said billion Chris out to the ocean you refuse to go to the ocean and all I said was Dan. Now you know why fire that's I mean I didn't I did end up going okay in the ocean in an ocean. I love the you know I do love the ocean. I can't imagine you going into the ocean. Though I don't know I loved the fears you have I do. I feel like you have fears ears like one or two top of snakes. Definitely not the what's to if one is snakes Gaol G. Five snakes you met me. Let's go out to Tzu. <hes> Mike Mike go ahead. You're on wake here on E._S._P._N.. Radio still I think tigers dining washed up. How about that well? You know. Here's a an interesting thing. Thank you for the call ration here I have. I have thoughts on them. I am so torn tiger not gonNA make the cut not gonNA play this weekend at the open championship Chris as the I think the only person on this show who was also a golf it love golf. I love golf especially the majors. I am torn on what to do with tiger because the tiger woods I grew up watching was not satisfied by just winning. The masters ended appears with age comes perspective and a broken body but with age comes <hes> perspective at tiger is basically telling you hey and he said it. I can't go to the rain for three hours. Play thirty six holes come home and John Five miles anymore the fact that he used to do that. Is it saying Hey Chris. You and I play thirty six. I'm done for like a week my God I'm sore the next day forget about the three hours on the range and the the five Mile Jog afterwards. I've eighteen holes sore the next day. So what are you saying like you. Don't you're questioning whether that's he's. She's being honest. Their body felt good enough to ease to wonder right now. He's not GonNa make the cut but the body felt good enough. I'm just torn on this. The Tiger I grew up watching be dominant tiger. All he cared about was golf and so I'm happy that he has found some perspective. I am happy that he has found some balance but selfishly. It is driving me crazy because the tiger moment we added Augusta. I want those moments more often at the very least I wanNA pushing these young guys in all the majors I want him and kept good speed and we're just it doesn't seem like we're GONNA get it. I'm with you. It's discouraging and I'm trying to find someone else to get me excited about golf and kept. We talked about all his he's interesting then. I found myself getting upset yesterday when I saw who's at the top of the leaderboard what I'm doing their part of me wants to root for Kapka and then the other half of me is disappointed when it's just him that keeps popping up at the top of these leaderboards. The leaderboard is set up so nicely for the weekend it is if you love golf but we say we said every major right but it is. I mean you got listen. You got speak there and you got kept. Go there and rickie Fowler has I don't think he will just eat off so we'll see if he can get himself into contention. Dustin Johnson is put himself in position Patrick read. There are a lot of big time golfers. Tommy fleetwood would a lot of big time golfers top leaderboard. There are two guys Miss Tiger and Phil and they're getting old man they are. I'm starting to worry changing up. Its whole diet not eating anything. He's crazy. He's a little tigers actually admitting that he's not this perfect specimen. We're GONNA find out during the break. If Dan is still leading if he is still eating I will come back and take all these calls. We'll continue with wake you take if not I don't know what to tell you. I locked the door though.

Massive Buffa- I had a piece the bacon during the break that did you aggress bite of a waffle and I'm just going to take all of you. Yes topgun trailer by the way now but I see everyone. Everyone's talking about it. Roy alerted alerted me to that yesterday I I ran. I was on the golf course actually when you said that Roy I stopped playing golf and I watched this over and over and over and over and over. I tweeted out this morning. I said I dare you not to watch this. That looks so good. He's like the Cage Yvette NAP subgroups and they need the cagey bet they need them for one last mission that we all know was not one last mission. They'll be more missions. Put It on the fall. Will there be more missions for Maverick any movie that involves one last anything is good and it's also nevertheless the last isn't the new blood called last blood yeah for the loans early and talks for another movie after this last blood. That's the last drop of blood draw blood. How could there be more blood? Put that on the poll. If that's the last drop of blood. How could there possibly be more blood? How how would you like the options on that full the to look? I leave that to you but here's the way I want the question in phrase if that's the last drop of blood. How could there possibly be more blood I don't know or I don't know got it about that? Let's go out to Paul Paul. Go ahead line one Roy Paul. I'm one you're on wake. You Take E._S._P._N.. Radio yesterday. I was just wondering where one of your first dead show was. I dead show was at Madison Square Garden but in nineteen eighty nine it was the first night of a nine nine nine stretch at the garden after that. I did nothing but go to grateful that show because the experience was so good. Thank you for the call. Was He gonNa tell me he is. I guess you said Thank you for the call and had to drop them. So nine straight nights deadheads in Manhattan big story written about this. How New York City was very upset because when deadheads come to concerts and they take over your city? It's like the a Monday night football game the College Game Day I really do and so people were very upset. You had all these deadheads doing all kinds of drugs at sleeping on the streets of Manhattan for nine consecutive nights because the debt plate nights at M._S._G.. was. Is it the same playlist like the same show every night. The beauty of the dead is built. They could do nine consecutive concerts and you still won't hear everything that you wanted to hear. That's why people love the dead so much you'll never go to a concert and hear back. You'll never hear the same song and back toback concerts in fact you'll go probably three or four shows without hearing the same song. Are You not hearing the same song because they're not playing the same song because they have so many great songs. I didn't know it was because it was the dead so like you just don't remember hearing the No. It's no it's <hes> it's because they have so many great songs. You ask a dead head like their favorite dead song. They'll get mad at you because there is no one favorite dead song I mean you love all the salt. That's it I have zero retention. I can remember remember pretty much the entire settlers from a show. I saw one thousand nine hundred nine in Philadelphia. It's it's odd weird. Let's go out on a second. Alison may have been at that concert eighty nine Philly J._F._k.. Eh that was the last concert at that at that venue at J._F._k.. Stadium I go. I go loser so weird. I'm rattling settlers scarlet fire second-set. Yes and that's the strangest relationship dynamic the two of you have because you're very similar you like the same things like you guys should be very good friends but for some reason you don't appear to be very good friends I would. You say I would say that were. I think we're good friends. I don't know how it feels but billy I'm with you. We have a lot in common. I don't like the dead though I'm not at that you went to that show. Why because my? I don't know what the last one at Delhi J._F._K.. Actually experienced one of the great shows of all time. Maybe I will tell the story or are you agreeing to come ONS depositing. You've never asked but if you did I ask you every week. I don't think Chris I do. I ask her every week. I mean that seems a little debatable. I ask her every other week at least right every every week is have I asked you multiple times yes or no you guys did call me once and I hung up. Let's commit right now. Stupidity two weeks date yes in the great chef. They had a little little red rooster in there somewhere I think it was promised land in their promised land closed the first set. I'll tell you I can't remember. I can't remember yesterday but I remember the settlers from a show. Yeah I would Philadelphia Eighty nine. No more calls. Roy Is dance deleting. Do we know Dan still is the doors to lock. He's very hungry. I mean he is rifling down eggs right now saying I. I don't know what we're GONNA do next. It could be Wak- tate. Dan could be back. I might do a traditional radio show. I have no idea we'll find out together. M._S. Gasoline Philadelphia Eighty nine who've Donlevatar that movie was good man the three hundred Roy are you disputing Roy. I will fight you at Lebatardshow. Ghirma was three hundred goods stugatz. I'll argue three hundred the best action movie of all time I'LL GET ATTY. Bite me. Get Out of here. Fight me. I'll fight you Netanyahu cash. Don't add me these Donlevatar show with Stugatz on E._S._p._N.. Radio <music> eating that and good outs and good Edison. You run all the way here from Fort Wayne. We'll get the Fort Wayne in the second. I mean the crate music went off and there's no telling what it will go off and it goes off. We're GONNA read a question if you had to listen to one band for the rest of your life. which ban would you choose? We know mind <hes> let's go to let's go to fat Chris Roots of a rebellion. Oh boy bands that I like okay gear about favorite band o or just musical act done. Don't just make it band. It's one band that you have to listen to for the rest of your life. You have to take that into consideration at the situation making it a band where billy may prefer singular artists okay. That's fair. Come back to me. I had to get I mean it's my favorite ever. I need to think about this have different favorites throughout my life so I need to figure out which of those has been my favorite ever. Welcome back to you. Roy James Brown J._B.'s James Brown and the J._B.'s okay isn't that a redundant name for a band while he named the ban out though yeah well James Brown right and then the little J._p.'s J. Bees are the rest of the band not James Brown's released least music under their own Jay and the Beast Stanford James Brown. Yes does ridiculous name like big hit. Pick up the peas or something like that or if I had a band and we were all in it and I called it Chris and the Seas Right. Well like Elvis Presley E._p.'s. I know you said you're is obvious but listening habits in radio grateful dead for me grateful dead for shakedown street though shakedown street is grill track. You love that like a disco vibe uh-huh Pretty Abreast yes it is the O._J.'s were named editor manager name was O._J.. Right really yeah. It's a little odd you have to James Brown and say it again the little J._B.'s the J. B. J. B. it should be the little J._B.'s right. We're not J._V.'s. Should it be put that on the ball should be James Brown and the not J._B.'s migraine go with going with the white stripes white stripes alison. Mary Mary Jag Mary J.. We send musical like what we have to go back to billie now that he's had just haven't given much thought we'll come back to me. We are back to back to you know it's Pitt bull or something that pit bull. I like thank you know not Elvis Shakira bad bunny j Galvin the big decision Billy Taylor thirty years and I've had lots out to different you know favourite musicians throughout my life and I need to tell you all time favorite I don't WanNa be you know the one that just tells you current favorite because that's not all time that's just a right now faith. We know you're not going Tchaikovsky or something like that. I mean the band that he has to have a has. It has to have a massive catalog of songs. Doesn't it otherwise you'll get tired of it pretty quickly understand this game. Is it this you can only listen to one band for your life and it just who's your favorite pan of all time no question and you can no longer listen to any other music that isn't this one choice that you make right now. which does sorta alter the game a little bit because your favorite band may not be the most reliable ban? That's what I'm saying. So who's the most reliable musical person person in your eyes in Europe minds the grateful dead. I want to go with something mellow so I'm GonNa say Bob Marley. That's a great that's a great choice a phenomenal choice. I'm jealous of you glad you took your time. Yes anyone else anyone else want to take their time <music>. I'm anyone else visit did really well with it. I'll give you sure James Brown and the J._v.'s separating the art from the artist Roy at that right so James Brown and the J. Bees. Can you only listen into songs that were James Brown. J._B.'s J._b.'s did side things. Can you listen to the J. Bees or listen to James Brown because I feel like if you're saying James Brown on the J._B.'s you can only listen to them together projects because then you're picking to musical acts in sheeting very true I limited myself to the the white stripes I didn't say Jack White right outside and the grateful dead which means no dead and company which means no Jerry Garcia band I mean that's the choice in James Brown tell you we're going to go just with the poor. J._v.'s the only such a great Thanksgiving song this part of my Thanksgiving playlists my the tin gaps game. I know we got thirty seconds here but you you're just coming back now. From the I woke up at three three thirty A._M.. Booth went to the airport Fort Wayne Airport not busy at four A._M.. Not Busy at all I am back now and I had a wonderful time. I it was honestly I'm in the moment I wanna give it time like we saw what great answer billy did by taking the time and Saint Paul Morley right now in this moment that for me is the coolest thing I've ever done associated with this show. That's awesome. I'm not here that I want to hear more about it. So I'm going to give you time to gather yourself here and then he'll tell us all about the great day and night you had just share with the audience what you share with me yesterday upon landing in Fort Wayne what did the stewardess say welcome to the Turks and Keiko's they just go to it. It was really funny from everybody. I've never seen so many far. Just get me to wear them going. It's spare me to stand up routine Guy Donlevatar. I would absolutely take down my own school as a journalist. If I find out that there it was financial aid problems. Are you kidding me. I'm not hiding that story. I totally leverage that information for money. Felony Blackmail stugatz. He's got to be the only radio personality in America who freely admits yeah I'd commit. That's the metro all good. All the other spots have been taken. He's like serving the landscape on. Where can I plant my flag? I got this right. Nobody else wants this. Why is there no one here wow this looks like such a great land? I could just claim all fraud and crime. It worked out well for me live at our show with these two guys on E._S._p._N.. Radio Tim Kirk and join the show in fifteen minutes on the shell pennzoil performance line. It's a big buff Ed. What can I tell you and he's hungry? I mean so Mike Mike Ryan went to Fort Wayne Indiana. Yesterday there was a game the official unofficial Dan lebatardshow night at the tin caps APPs game in Fort Wayne Baseball Minor League affiliate Mike was out there. I facetime with you last night from the game. That was fun. I gave you about sixty seconds. I hope those people know two thousand dollars per word whatever I said to them. I expect to check in the mail. Sioux falls is so you mad luckily so he called me three times. He has sent me multiple tax. He is called. This is Jeff third. Our friend out in Sioux falls who they wanted to create a whole day for me. Stu Gods Day Parade Golf Tournament. Complain with John Daly Ten thousand dollars private jet which I'm glad I didn't agree to because you had to take nineteen planes to get the Fort Wayne. It wasn't that bad but something and he is upset. He is very upset and now and I didn't respond to any of his tax. I didn't answer any calls. I told him I was busy. I was busy doing was facetime ing Fort Wayne Indiana terrible about that so you land in the Fort Wayne Airport and guess what not unlike when you land in well pretty unlike when you land in Hawaii they handle away and they wrap it around your neck. Welcome to Hawaii in Indiana Fort Wayne Indiana you get off the plane. It's a lovely little airport. There's a cute little man with individually wrapped cookies and everybody gets a cook very nice. What kind of Nice it was a chocolate chip cookie? Why that is delightful better than Hawaii was it was it tightly wrapped loosely wrapped care? If you're in Fort Wayne who's Antonio Cookie. It was sealed the America's heartland felt competent and cookie was good soft chewy excellent. You get what I'm saying. Though it's like you know I went to Colorado for dead shows and the Uber driver picked me up and there was a bag of loosely wrapped candies in the back seat and he was driving me and abby home and Abby was hungry he said should I should I eat a piece of candy and I said You can't even what will happen to you and I will wake up in a strange Motel Nava ball gag in my mouth so I drive through a pretty terrible thunderstorm like Miami thunderstorm. I'm like man I was worried. Is this going to happen. I get to the hotel no one's at the hotel and there isn't a person working. The desk could sell them just handing over ten minutes. I realize you probably call and then I got help and shortly thereafter we got picked up by wonderful P._d.. Out there at our affiliate and he took me on a drive of Fort Wayne Indiana at one point. He told me look outside. You'll be approaching downtown. You'll see the downtown skyline of downtown Fort Wayne and I was legitimately looking out the window for five consecutive minutes and I m like have we come up to it yet. He's passed it. The fire took museum. I did not see the fire truck museum so I get over were there. They believe you miss the skyline. I cannot say enough good things about <hes> the town the people the tin caps. This was the most organized thing I had a whole itinerary. It was incredible. They gave me a Mike Ryan ten caps Jersey that said three three Oh five nice I went on the I went on the sports rump with Brett rump and we've rebranded that he's gotta go sports rump absolutely and then I did a Q._N._A.. With fans there were five hundred t shirts out there. There were certainly more than the Fort Wayne Five. There were hundreds and hundreds of people. The Q._N._A. was really fun. Mayor Tom Henry who I was told couldn't make it actually showed up as a surprise and yeah and gave me the official proclamation and while it wasn't the official key to the Fort Short. He gave me a fake one and that's a lot that's a copy of the key is a copy of the key and it was incredible. Then I went out and threw out the first pitch ou with Joe the the the leader of the Fort Wayne Five right now as you know if you've been listening to the local hour I suffered a devastating shoulder injury day Oh gee when Roy forced me to stay with the parents and I went head over heels and had a horn growing out of my soul always. This is the first time I've thrown baseball in about twenty years. I wasn't prepared for this way. You're setting this up makes me think it will ninety five mile per hour right down the middle pure gasoline really yeah. It was incredible okay so I thought I was throwing hard baseball so I didn't have to toss. Is it that much because I have a way to get a little ner Shah actually throughout a softball so mess with me a little bit if you see before it now I know on twitter. There's there's there's comments out. If you could see one hops right after the plate screwed up there are a little bit catcher and devastating movement on this pitch. That is a twelve six textbook curb. If there's a battery in that box he's swinging. There's robot umpires that might have been called Jack. That's true. It was an incredible sinker. It wasn't bad man. It wasn't that bad. What does the softball exactly yeah because I know the sport of softball and that's like a big ball but that look like a baseball look like a baseball looks just like baseball but it's not it doesn't hurt as much to get hit by nice shoulder? Grab right after you through the pitch by the way it's very well done by my fault. Also here's here's the coolest part and we only have like ninety seconds left before Tim Kirch in I shook hands with the stooge one who went to Saint Thomas Aquinas and they had another player on the team called whose last name was ruis and the tin caps went down eleven to two and then I went in the television booth and things started happening. I had to leave to go to dinner with the Fort Wayne Five and all the wonderful people out there that made this happen but a kick started a rally folks around the game five left the game early yeah we had to I I was there for proximate sixteen hours so I had to get a lot in and have a meeting with all the wonderful people that helped put this together right across the street at a wonderful steakhouse but billy gets still see home play from where he was eating yes. It's that got Italian. Here's here's the crazy thing. Here's the crazy thing about last night's game. It was the craziest game in ten caps history. They came back from eleven to two down the kid who I met before the game. Two one from Saint Thomas hit a grand slam to put the ten caps up Ruiz's perform well. There was a bench clearing brawl. It was the most insane game ever ten caps win. Thanks to the Mike Ryan Lebatardshow bump and it was literally the biggest comeback in ten caps history not just a crazy game for them like literally.

I don't fucking know but I'll just like yeah. I don't think that'd be a good idea. I'd like his best to looks at the breakfast club. You know Maybe the breakfast club. But I said I'll gauge interests. I said I honestly didn't know how I feel about interviewing six nine because if you would have got out out of felt like there would be no accountability in San Jose like you you you you wile out you know you troll people you audits on people people got hurt you know you do all this bullshit and you go to jail and you snitch on every fucking body right and then you just come home. What gives a full embraced with open arms? Like where's the accountability in that like. How does the kid right right out of the kid learn from that six nine situation waist if he just comes home reasonable on Wednesday he's been there is a situation where he's been imprisoned for? What is it thirteen months or seventeen months And you yeah. You've been a big proponent of change behavior and not thirteen months that's the next question was how long is it before you can get get away from your past. What about the biology is changed behavior right so I would have to see how he comes home so he was on yesterday? Gotcha see what type of person he is you know. Are you coming home home humbled by the situation. How you coming home acknowledging that what you did was wrong in a real way? Are you a change man. Are you still out here telling everybody suck your Dick Right. I mean gene and by the way I have no reason to trust him. Because he's a young troll so he's the type of person that will say anything to get what he wants right so you come home and you try to be nice six nine nice six nine. Don't work right and you gotta go back to suck my Dick six nine supertalk gangster six nine because you're surrounded by all this security six nine and then now all of us looking stupid it again and now we back where we started. I never thought that the super tug thing was that compelling I thought the self-deprecation was funny like when he would run in the hallways talk about how he's the fastest guy when he's like super slow obviously and it was just hysterical like he just be in this hotel room plan soccer like. He's the best goalie when he was kind of making fun of himself. Poking Fun at himself I was really entertained. Him telling like dugout people to suck his Dick was funny. Because it kind of exposed -sposed they're fake thuggery in a lot of ways out of exploitative doug they just never ran into each other I mean like there's some people you can't tell him to suck your Dick not true not on the Internet. They got guy telling the president is update. Dick every you tell the president of cellular Internet to suck you. I do it in person. You do it further with all secret service and watch what happens to you. I think you could say suck my Dick to the president now tackle. You can't run up on them Actually physically make him suck your Dick with high sounds on the Internet on the Internet. Anybody can do whatever they want to be on the Internet. You can say whatever you want to write but there are consequences to those actions right then you you want somebody like six nine. That's all fun game so you look at the letters from the victims right that descend to the judge. Are you look at the innocent back. You don't think about shit like that. The innocent bystander. I stand who got shot. He was ordering a hit on somebody. Here's what I always say the illusion. Maybe before six nine was Yo- you don't even say a word about at these Gangsta rappers. Because if you even say a word about them you might not have felt this way but maybe someone like myself. WHO's a little bit more removed? The word the the idea was that they were like mob mob bosses whereas a union say. Because if you say at work someone's GonNa see you about it and then he could have still got saw. That's fair that's fair. But like he we started saying a word about everybody and none of them did anything and it was kind of fascinating for think. Oh no way it. Oh you're on zone Chicago like he was he in all all these places the videos they showed video guy in Chicago surrounded by police officers around by all his type flight security already old block. He went to at like four thirty five in the morning. Literally was there for like forty seconds. Joe He got kidnapped. What do you mean he got kidnapped and scowl but he got kidnapped New York not even hardly crew things? So it's not even hard to get on and I have you right now. I know that I know you're on. We were out. Go get me where he she is kidnapped. Somebody in your team right easy thing to do. I Know Taylor that everyday kidnapper the price so hot commodity excrete Crete. How they hit us and they were like one million? Doing I wouldn't tell the board you wouldn't sell her. I wouldn't sell it for nothing I have. What does that mean? You're selling Ellen. I was in a buyer's market. That's right you kidnapped. Yeah Hey so here's the question. What would we pay for Taylor? Said say she was kidnapped by someone else and I know her. It's Taylor but I know her you know her. It's Taylor it's this Taylor. She's not your relatives. Yo One yes a ranch trying to get her back to save our life our this the Habur. No no no. You don't owner now okay. Kidnapping worse the original to bring a professional wax getting there no. It's ransom it is a ransom. Taylor is kidnapped. There's one way to get her back it. It is one million. US dollars to get her back prayer. Changes things broke what I'm saying. Everybody whole hands. And let's that's all say a prayer for young Taylor. You know what I mean. I love her. Please believe he will be Anguilla. Willett forgetting about God bring her back home safely please. This is not putting up a billy Taylor. Millions a lot of money broke a million's a lot of money. Merlene the lot of money. Oh say what what about five hundred got to see what your mom. What kind of collateral your mom guide to the House? We'll that's true theory. Your mom got to put up the money. I that's not on Charlotte collateral. Like if I put this money up make sure it's Roi on this. There's no return on. Investment is not a stock but I get twenty percents perpet- would I wanNA make sure that I get my money back at some point but you can't get your money back if you put the house up and put the house in my name so you go by her mom's House House you're holding. Her ransom for doing happened happened ring. A Milli no five hundred K.. No okay what's the no question about about fifty thousand dollars to get Taylor back. Put fifty up neo. That's what's up Taylor. You got fifty out of me. I'll put fifty fifty up for Taylor. That's no problem but only five til ninety one hundred one hundred the one hundred and fifty thousand dollars when it gets a little tricky dazzling we have to start thinking about other options hundred. Two hundred fifty thousand allows for girls to go to college. But I'm not saying you don't have a future tail and I don't know how you'll be after kidnapping traumas real good. ooh What shape. The car's by is no fucking joke after that shit show a lot. You might not get your life together. And then he can't get any return. Investment might be just a lifetime of therapy and counseling view from there. Every time we say Hank you start shaking in the fun corner. It could be bad. But I'm saying all that to say Takashi got kidnapped by somebody in his team as easy to do right so it's just like he could he he yeah. He was avoiding a lot of potential. Really bad trouble. I actually think jail was a good thing for him and the police officer said that when they originally I mean they said we're arresting do because if we don't arrest you get over you're going to get killed well. They told him that so. I think it was for two reasons. I don't think there was really candidates safety. I also knew I think. They know that they could flip. They knew they could flip Takashi six nine away they did yes simple there and do you think that there's any future for him. It's GonNa be rough though but it's definitely a future. I mean I see Takashi I think Takashi coming home sometime next year he's GonNa need twenty four seven hundred sixty five security. How much is that? It's going to be very costly. I look at somebody like fifty cent. I don't know a fifty cent had around the clock security without fifty cents a knowing like Oh nine I read a article that said fifty. She says security detail was one point six million dollars Holy Shit and I don't even think that's around the clock that's just like when he's moving around you know. Maybe the city are different cities going in in and out of town. I don't know if I don't know if that's around the clock but it was one point. Six million for fifty cents now. My question is how Takashi will make that money because let's table put up ten million dollars right and so maybe a million or two of that. Golden his pocket. The rest goes into his budget for arms security and stuff like that for. He's going to be supervised. Release five years. What does that mean? It's like a supervisory Lisa. It's like probation for five years or maybe parole. I Dunno if it's permission. Operate he's going to be on probation parole for five years and that means he can travel if he gets permission if he gets permission right right now just in the states probably just an states before he left before he went in none of these arenas this shit wanted to fuck with them. You think that's GonNa Change. Not He's not GonNa look at him as more of a liability. Because could they think everybody really wants to kill it as motherfucker. What's the monetizations? Don't know 'cause you don't make that much money off stream we know that already. We know you don't make a lot and when I was a billion screamed on spotify defy equates to like a million two dollars something like that so you know you don't make a lot of money off screaming you're GonNa have to be on the road constantly to make this money and really dissipate security already security bill every mother fucking on top of your other bills. I don't see how it La- I don't see how he survives does my my personal take on it. I don't see where the money's non conference I just don't think the labels believe that there's money here clearly labeled we wanted to interview. They wanted me to do a one on one interview. I told him that we should do breakfast club. They really thought he was coming home on which is another thing. I think probably pissed off. The judge can one stuff like that gets in the news. It's like little decide. Decided Party setting up interviews fugger like here in a way to judge was lining up. I thought judge like I said he would probably get three to five with time served. Yeah you probably do like two years so I listen. I thought it was. I thought I'M NOT GONNA say I thought it was a fair injustice because he snitched. You know what I'm saying. I the cooperation Asian is bad like but he at least got held accountable and he's going to be held accountable for the rest of his life. This is a permanent sane. We can we discuss this here if if you're gonNA snitch and then your crew tries to take take you out. I get that but if you're crew tries to take you out first and then you snitch. Is that not understandable. Nah I like with the judge I said yesterday the judge said you are not a victim here no no. I'm not saying he's a victim but but just on that one. I'm just curious about SNITCH. Etiquette before we get into to him specifically in other words. Let's say you and I are a gang. We're doing all these like you know bank robberies shit like that right. Let's say I'm about to go snitch on you You kill me Visas like if goes hasn't snitched on time yet and tighter watch goes but I get it. But here's the thing let's say you're about to kill me right And I find out that you WANNA kill me. You don't have to share any of this bank money with me and I go. Well fuck that. I'm stitching on this motherfucker. He's trying to kill me don't you. You start the bad shit candidate you gotta kill me. That's the Gangsta Octopus. Okay you gotta give me got okay. Okay it's everything is outside of law enforcement you can't so it would be more respected on the streets. Not Saying this is a a good thing to do. But it'll be more respect than the streets in other words. If I handled you totally understand for you handled mail and people who would say that was dishonorable. You killed your man. Could you explain the situation. They'd be like okay. The guy had no other choice simply that okay. That's just what I need to clear it up about the whole thing about the streets and I'm sure it's a similar to a mob shit. Our everything is just we handle things outside law enforcement absolutely once you start. Didn't enforcement you Iraq. That's it the same people we've been ducking fucking Rosh us for years and so now you wanna use them to your advantage in love with the justice six nine yesterday. Did you not victim yet when it was convenient for you. You use this Fermi here. Yeah Yo you're bidding. Yes you called. Hits on trippy. Reading you all hits on Chief Kief like when it was when it was serving you because he actually called him selfish. The judge called them selfish. Always judge said you're selfish so when it was when it was self serving to you you use this game to your mother fucking been so you ain't no you know innocent here right at all so it listen. I don't feel I'm shocked that he didn't get a little bit more time right. But it's just GonNa be rough on when he comes on. WHO's coming in Charleena? It's going to be very rough home. And he comes on man and I honestly don't see how you do if you're him breath I would do a lot of soul-searching I wouldn't I wouldn't I wouldn't worry about the character of six hours. Stay alive is what I'm asking. When he he comes home? What would you do to stay alive? I don't know I'm we live in a different areas. I'm not saying that he's going to be getting shot at everywhere he goes. Yeah I mean. Honestly when you asked me a question what would I do to stay alive. That's why I do a lot of soul-searching like I would. I would really dismissed Mr Character six nine because the character of niners will got me in that situation and I would really leaning on diluted fuck Daniel Hernandez trying to figure out my life. Yeah I mean I'd be doing a lot of soul searching and just you know holding myself accountable recognizing where I went wrong and trying to correct that as a man and then I would get back into the music thing. That's why that's another reason. I didn't want to interview him so soon. Because I'm like labels don't give a fuck about six nine. Didn't give a fuck about six. But not before he went into jail. They were funding to function right. These went to jail and he snatched and he's back on the street. They just want to fund more dysfunction. They want their what are y. S It if if if if it's true today ten million in them which I don't even know if that's true if it's true today need he won't fucking money back all the thing about his product go out here. These motherfucking solves the see. If we can get you on the road doing shows and Nasdaq. Yeah it's just interesting then it let's say I want want return on investment I guess that I I would have to fund that fifty cent esque security. You have no choice. You have no choice. If I'm Daniel Hernandez I have to take that agreement. Because that's the only thing that keeps me alive. If I don't WanNa take that agreement. Does he move to Montana like where does he go where you can go. I is a different era. How to fuck do you witness protection? When you're a celebrity? I've never seen a case like this. Correct me if I'm wrong Chris. Andrew I've never seen a case as would have a high profile celebrity right and I mean I'm not gonNA called six hundred dollars even though I hate those fucking but he's a he's a he got high profile and you're a fucking government informing seen anything like this is so interesting because this might be the first witness protection situation of the Internet world. Where witness protection was predicated on the whole idea? That middle America America had no clue what was going on In entertainment more like on the coast so literally. The idea of witness protection was low. We'll send them no glaucoma they. They don't know what's happening over there. The Internet has shrunk the world those kids in Gomel same hip hop your kids. Listen to listen to the same hip hop my cousins. Listen to every day no six nine. I don't think that you can send him to any place in America where the kids there will be unaware of who he is. He wants to be seen right wherever he didn't hype if he was like. I truly just WANNA GO I. I don't think he's GonNa be a witness protection they'll turn it down but let's say they offered it to them. We GonNA WIN IS PRETEND TO UTAH. They're hip yeah man. Montana dare dare have the Internet shrunk everything if there's no more new world y'all there's no more witness protection bro. Yeah it's gone I really don't know. And then like I said twenty four seven three sixty five security. I just don't see how he I just don't see where the money's GonNa come from. He wasn't generating that kind of paper when he was out out. So I don't see what money's GonNa come from his it's streaming is not going to be able to cover those kinds of bills. You know what I'm saying. Reality Show because reality show he could have. But it's not kind of bills WHO'S GONNA pick it up one of these networks showtime already time doing a documentary on with some shit like that complex amplats doing a documentary. Yeah like they've been enough to showtime showtime she months ago like Yes motherfuckers. Give a fuck about that content now get it fucked up. Content is always king a TV network. Definitely pick it the fuck up. But I'm just talking about as far as like him making consistent money on a show basis. I don't see the WHO the target company that's GONNA sign nine. Yeah it'd be interesting to see how it plays out. I think the irony of six nine getting a sentence in trump getting on the same fucking Heo six slapped harder. Bro We were. We were on twitter refreshing twitter. This this guy was given this long speech. The judge there for every second me You van Texan me and Alex were actually together with Caz Caz we're going through every single moment limit. The trump impeachment had not think they slapped equally San Green even discuss the trump impeachment. I had a couple of group chats going but you know what it was so good about it day and tonight the coffee was today. Yeah trump was late at night. Trump was like eight o'clock nine o'clock last night. Only impeachments came down. I think I think the difference was. I knew impeachment. Pizza in the house didn't mean anything so it's not like there was a decision made about trump still low. It's historic got me in any it's historic but it doesn't do winning two three two three worst things that can happen to a president are impeachment. Being removed impeachment never happened. Yeah and actually getting fascinate right. The I told you that you don't want the president. Yeah I just don't think impeachment matters Madison. Will I know when you when you're when you're a would would was to take right when you're a narcissist like Donald trump who was calling for the impeachment of Barack Obama. Right literally saying yeah. He should be impeached for gross incompetence pulling up all his son San Barack should IBM PC. Right yeah this is a state but I will say this right out throw outdoor out threshold. You don't think that he's okay with stains. His whole thing is being a stain. Nah Aw I think that you underestimate how little he cares about the people. That don't like him I think he's made a career. He's made a career on on and not only not only political but in entertainment career on division. Move you either love or hate this man and he understands understands what is more love or hate than politics any polarizing frozen right of course. Donald Trump had the most bruise wounded eagle. Oh I've ever seen if there's one person that is dealing with their heart in a child syndrome. Yeah Batman and every billionaire did I know especially here in New York subtle flakes it just letting them none. I'll be honest with you other trump towers last week I was like what the fuck who is in that whatever whatever they call avenue and they were talking to me about trump and they were saying how we never took trump. nope serious goofy I e wanted to be always wanted to be down with that club. He thought being president was going to finally make make that club. Accept him now. You look even bigger decade radio out though trump a little bit of bell right honestly honestly though they never accepted him but he manifested that shit when he was earlier on in his career he would call the tabloids himself himself and he'd go. Hey I'm the publicist for Donald Trump. SORRY BILLIONAIRE DONALD TRUMP. BEFORE HE ECZEMA billionaire on the billionaire he was at this restaurant last night with this person trying to get paid six always got a call himself billion donald trump before he was ever billionaire. He knew who exactly what he was doing. He was don't think that's the highest level of insecurity I'd ever Bernard Account you're coughing. Fucking New York Post paid. Take to report stories on yourself. I'm not denying did. It's wildly insecure. What I am denying is what I'm saying? Is He is aware of these global elites these billionaires right and he's aware of who he is I don't think he I don't think I don't think he's unaware that I don't think he thinks he's one of them. I think he definitely wouldn't be down to one hundred percent one hundred percent one. We need you right now. I think he definitely wants to be part of the in crowd. He's always wanted to be part of the in crowd right. And we're not. We're not having a political discussion Chris. We're just talking about Carrizo. Would've book about trump. Now you're in you're in the shots crissier. What was the book about Christian Christiane Behind you? There's two cameras. Yeah and I was reasonable Chris and could be even before. Donald trump is president. Criticizing telling me telling me these kind of stories so I know that they're not coming from a bias is placed his no no donald trump. This isn't political this. I'm just giving you a character valuation adoption come a little bit yeah I did not write a book for Donald Trump. I wrote a book for his daughter. Ivanka right problematic literature. Bro Take Curse if you talk Rights you gotta you gotTa meet to comment breath breath of. What is your record for for authors Metoo undefeated? It looks like not copies moving story for you. This the worst ghostwriter Chris you gotta record bro You gotTa Resumes Up once at Kevin Spacey Book Coming Out Working on it. We're GONNA Harvey Weinstein's Premium Chris. So tell us down trump. Yeah I think he was on the outside of what you would. Call The in crowd I think a banker was very much Groomed to be on the inside. He S and I think that's where it gets interesting because I think she was part of that scene. I mean when I was working for her They asked me to interview her friends and her friends were all you know. Rupert Murdoch's wife Carlos slim with the basically the Mexican kids none of them he positions are to be friends with all those people that he couldn't maybe get access to because they thought he was too crass He wasn't grandfathered in but she she could be born in infancy that trump as the NIGGA Harsh way of looking at the truth. They thought he was ghetto out. which was a big deal out of borough trae some Queens in Queens? He's not a city kid. He didn't go to Y'all again like Oh oh do it. It's yeah even though circles. Humans have hierarchies no matter where we are. We have hierarchy. Somebody's telling me a story about when they're in Fuck what was it like Namibia or some shit like that and there was a club and I think it was. My Ben Committee who was in this club was outside and the head of VIP section. The club they just had to plastic chairs but human beings need for. Can Hierarchies were disgusting. We need it. That's crazy. I didn't interrupt but to look the town but it's just like how can I find a way to have some value over you without doing any work that look at it from a hypothesis. Back to Queen's got all the best way right in Manhattan Manhattan but I'm got billionaires. Don't define the worth by. Who has the best rappers in run DMC from Queens gravitated to trump or this to to hang out with trump was basan rapper because trump had the money right playboy right and so back then all those wrap probably the richest person they knew it had access to they will show a mad love and furthermore they were all faking until they made it rappers were acting like they had? This had tons of money when they didn't Donald Trump was acting like he had tons of money when he didn't and you know what some of those rappers ended up getting tons of Fuckin- money and I'll get the money though when it wasn't a billionaire. So here's the thing and you know this now because you're operating with these guys. You have tons of money compared to Taylor with these billionaires you. You don't got shit known. They print money they pray money so he's talking about their vacations. Are My life savings exactly so like series. So everything's everything's relative right so if you're trump and you're the poorest one in the group you think you're broke yeah he don't even own trump towels right. He'd licenses but that's what I learned when I was working for them and researching the organization. Everything is licensed the name put down as little as your own money. Money is possible. If you burn the shutdown you just keep it moving and say yeah like that was his whole muscle and I guess it worked for him. Yes so I'm not the first person to not put down. Oh I do want I said I wanted I wanted to. I just wondered I want I. I can see I could play white devils Advocate with one thing right. Donald trump no political experience whatsoever the highest seed in the Land Bro. Of course he's GonNa fucking of coffee like what are we like. We're acting like this guy was some skilled politician who knows the engine out of politics. What he should be doing what he shouldn't be doing? It's easy to say. Hey all you gotta do is listen to this person and it probably is that easy. But he's not probably. I'm not listening to you. Mother fuckers of course he was gonNA fuck up. This was destined to crash and burn. This is why the United States of America released the put some qualifications on being president president. Bro You have to have certain educational level and you have to have a certain level political experience. This is not a game to be played with. It's interesting that you say that. Even the type of impeachment like the way that he fucked up rate abuse of power. What outside of abuse of power right? The way that he got caught ought is such a a political way to get caught right exactly. It's an inexperienced move right because a politician addition would have known how to get that message. There what they call it back channeling with enough cushion that if enough cushion combat what he what he did was a real estate estate. Move Right which is hey. I want to build this building in New Hampshire. Who's The guy going up for Congress in New Hampshire? We don't get me on the phone with that guy. I want to campaign but hey I I can't donate to your campaign you would love to because there's this thing I want you you know I'm not saying that this money for that I'm just saying wouldn't it be great if we had this building and your camp that is classic new not in New York but this a real estate hustle. When you're when you're dealing at the highest levels but I wish everybody who supported trump right everybody who supported trump? I really wish they would just take a step back and just say you know. Because he's like stop acting like he's the president right right well. He's a politician. Sure but the idea that that no presidents that their presence that don't fuck people out. This is every decision as a cost. How fucked up? It was rookie. INEX- It was a rookie move. Expected him to make this move and he doesn't stay smart people around him which is something I learned working with them. Is I mean you could put me in that category but like He. You know like honestly hilarious. He doesn't hire smarter. People me I know how they do stuff off. The number one qualification to get hired by them and this was true in the election. I'm sure it's true. The administration is they want the cheapest person I matter why they have. There's a A blueprint they follow on every deal like versus when they were negotiating with me it was. Okay this let's say hypothetically it's one hundred thousand dollar job right they they say listen. You should do this for fifty thousand dollars and we know it's under mark and this is exactly what they told me if you do this you're going to have so much shine around your name after you're connected to a trump success. He really is a rapper right. That isn't it'll be worth it. This is exposure bro. Sixteen bars but what was this goes that was the rapid gave me and I was literally on a vodka was like calling me up at midnight. Arguing over five thousand dollars like they literally trilingual you quit. So what happened was they. They gave me lives the orange version but no so they say let's say one hundred thousand dollar jobs you do it for fifty then halfway through it brought me in and she was like it's clear to me any I've been going to her apartment twice a week. Were hours and hours of talking clear to me. You don't respect my family. I was like I don't how you know like I say that because you're not a you're not you're reserve personnel reserve. There was an incident. Where and this this kind of comes back to? ooh What you're talking about with the thin skin in Paper thin paper machines She said I want you to come into a meeting with my father to watch how he operates it's so It's a meeting in trump tower.

It's her an interior designers architects going over the interior of the Whatever hotel they're building building and check them doing the the rugs the lighting the door fixtures? How much it's GONNA cost to do? Three hundred four hundred Murad boring but okay okay. This is how you make a hotel. After about forty five minutes trump himself comes in he immediately starts revealing their stuff. How come you didn't do it this way to the Interior designer. How can you saved us this amount doing this? What you could've saved us a thousand dollars doing this? What about this? What about this? And he's making his point and I'm like Dan. This is really fucking smart like these guys have been like fumbling over the figures and having and he just came in he was like razor-sharp. Like why don't you do this. Why don't you do that? Why did you do you could've done? What are you doing? And he made his point point and I was like okay. I'm impressed but then he kept going at this guy and going at this guy and going at this guy and go to the point where the guy literally almost started to cry leg it was. It wasn't a physical Dan but it was an emotional. Yeah he just kept going and finally just supposed to be a fly on the wall. You'll finally you guys can't see see this lucy watching the video Went like that. He did the mortgage. I put my like what the fuck you like. What what are you doing? It's too much it's just is lined bra right. So they pulled me out of ensembles me out into the elevator. And she's like listen. I know that look really bad. I A new. I know how that came off but you gotta understand. It's not personal. That's just how we got the best margins on our deal like yelling at people and emotionally abused abused Straw. He destroyed do something for that. Yeah he's my hero. Okay when I bought what my apartment and they told me was going to be six weeks to renovate in fuck me over for months six months. They've fucking light to me and fuck me over. Stole my money money for six months and I didn't have the balls. I was too poor yell at them. I was too poor to hire another contractor. I was just act their mercy the fact that some hero okay could walk in a room right and curse out contractor. WHO's fucking him over? Oh my God well. The guy hadn't done anything yet. They were just planning it but okay maybe you can say the guy was setting it up to get better margins. I thought it was one of the more outrageous things that ever seen. I did the shrug that was problem number. One problem number two was I wrote a passage where I described Trump towers as glitzy and they didn't like that. She told me she said Why would you describe my family? Buildings Glitzy Glitzy while I was like literally the definition of Glitzy Glitzy hold over. It's like covering goal. So she was like. Why would you try to portray us that way as you know glitzy implies is like cheap cheap garnish not class audio? Yeah yes so. That was a problem. Then the other problem is she said I use too many colloquialisms and and this is where we have the photo rican serve great actually Rummenigge. I love it had some last week. Tiffany Seattle so she says maybe maybe you're rappers friends talk. That was but I don't talk that way and I said excuse me okay okay. Maybe that came off around like all right. We've got a problem here so Pulled out well I would have kept doing it. Frankly because I want the money but So what they did is she came in and you know she gave his speech. I've given a lot of consideration. I really like you but it's not working out and I was like look I just. I was miserable. I was talking about this my wife the other day I was like going around hoping a car would hit me and just like break my leg so I just quit. Why didn't you auto worker quit? But I just had a baseball. You still got you. Don't WANNA quit it. Quick Line road just be gone thoughts long long story short. They get rid of me then they go. They did the same thing. But I'll show you the trump business model given me. Yeah then they go to somebody else. I think it was like a woman in California and they said listen we got. This book is three quarters of the way done. It's a forty thousand dollar job because it's really almost done but to for twenty do for twenty hot so same speech so they get one hundred thousand dollar job for maybe they pay me ten or fifteen I just gave I was like I don't care about the money I handed over all the notes I was like. I just want out of this shit and so they get a they got one hundred thousand dollar job for me. 'cause I thought you gonNa tell us the story about Donald Trump Standing Eagle. You just tell us how you got to go. See a Greek. I never deal uh-huh I've never said that. I don't think trump is smart. You've never heard me say he's not. The guy is dumb at politics. That's what people like. I think I think as zero moral center and I think he has zero self-awareness. I mean the other thing was they pulled me out for the Shraga. Maybe you shouldn't do that trump in my position but I interviewed. He's one of vodkas friends. Same thing she got kicked off his private jet because they were watching TV. Joe came on about his hair and she laughed and they pulo seed acetate eighty nine at the fucking jet. They're like you don't do. They landed the plane and then kicked off. I don't know exactly how it happened. But she was like whatever you do. She was trying to hit me. She was like whatever you do. Don't make a joke about this guy. You know trump would hate you. Andrew Trump would hate you. Yeah you could never be friends. Why would we WANNA be friends? I'm just saying if you always 'cause you like the joke like he would h you could dish it out. He can make jokes he can make or teeth are gonna the fallout. He loves most people. This is what I've learned just from being economy. In general most people who like dish it out cannot take it comedy. That's the fucking media life all. It's so disappointing Umbro because because when you meet these people that you know you're like all manner good ball busters. They're fun and then you want to go back and forth with different Megan super-sensitive you're like. Oh it's a facade. They don't they're not confrontational. So it's like when you have that conversation with the confrontation in a bad way. Throw something out like I. We've got this. Let's go fuck sensitive and then they break down people like Bro. I hate it I one of these things working with you is I can say whatever bro me. I think it's funny. I laugh when Vol's fucking with me. Brian Laugh or Donald Tex. That's why instagram wild.

Nah Aw tennis into a great podcast with Peter Vesey basketball right or the other day and he accused of having a job forget him in Andrews. Okay how how do we talk. I don't hold nothing. I can't hold grudges and you gotTa Talk. I don't even heard from join a minute. Every ninety way he Vesey senior called out Barclays. Being one of those people who does what who will say anything about anybody else but if you come at Barclay even a little bit. He's like the biggest phoney of the butt of every every joke on NBA. Tonight he is literally they make fun of him. Nonstop allows it. Yeah I think that is a big horse shit comment the maybe if you like call out his criticism I don't know maybe he caught his criticism of his NBA career. It's different but as far as having a sense of humor about himself and being self deprecating and like leading shack tackle him and beat him up emasculated enough. Yeah no did. He is the young I don't owned by that. Maybe bobby just don't like face. And that's the other thing is low key the biggest troll really. Yeah it was. It was a great view. Like I could see why people don't like this Guy Day like remember lost the fucking after game six. He just lost. The finals could bulls to the Bulls. And he's interviewing what does he say like. Is this the lowest point of your career. For what a good guy. Still Swaying Great job as you're going to take nap. They talked about great question to ask if losing your first. NBA Finals is the lapointe. Oh by the way. If you ask the Bron- Lebron we'll say no. No no no but like Lebron would have a great answer to that. I live real late. No no no no that that'd be life. He's the low point of your career career sport. Of course it's a little pointy career low point. Hey if you just get out the pool and some goes this. Is this the wettest you've ever been. A call pointed calls career when they tried to make him play Mattie Johnson with HIV look his Co.. What Scott is the problem? He sells one. It depends when the facts. We can't scientific McCall. That's when call call absolutely was not going on that court with Magic Johnson. That's when he was contemplate retirement. Call say what if you believed on me. What how times have changed back then where he could do something like that? How they change? Yes you know what I could say something like that. Ain't that what you're thinking exactly a bunch of people working we were uneducated HIV. I was a kid I had no idea where they almost almost think the same way I think no differently. Dead S.. You're telling me somebody got the full blown head. Yeah what but he thought he. Who knows if someone does back or not but now? You're saying someone full-blown here you as a player pick up game. My man is in the post elbows out if the board is if he started diving. For fucking balls start bleeding them calling timeout. If if son we know today about not taking these risks that you know what if you start bleeding stopped the game and that's because we absolutely so you can't be upset for people feeling like that no you can't. Why do we even have to like argue this dude? If I get that Shit I'm dead. Potentially I have every right to protect my son prejudice. You can live with the heaven you can live. But then you can't fuck nothing you gotTa Exit Lane fucking people know you know if you if you were playing naked basketball and someone who won't let everybody here. No I got hurt you gonNA play. Yes why would you play naked basketball. Have you have white friends I home. He's playing basketball right. Post moves only people living with HIV. Like you know it's it's not. It's not the deficit that was he's got he's got to let you know be away from Kuwait they could like market with HIV. Okay easy go not nowadays. You know me the commercials run out that serious run commercials run at so you have a community for people who all have HIV and they can date each other that work right. I actually think. And I'm not a hundred percent. SORTA this but I think there are different strands of it and I think that they can give each other. The different strands which increases the effect to the disease. Potentially no nothing about the virus lines. kind of like cystic fibrosis level. The lines bro. Lemon Ginger in Moscow mule. Will you listen. Put a cap on his trump sheet. Where what does it go from here? We noticed in. It's not gonNa vote to impeach him right so so so Charleston. You kind of understand this better than I do. What is the political process? Exactly going on the House votes. Yeah to get him impeach so he's impeached till you need a fifty one percent majority in the house and sixty if either fifty seven and sixty seven sixty seven. You need two thirds majority okay. That's what is so house needs fifty one percents To impeach now that then goes to the Senate they me two thirds to get him removed from office. It's not gonNA happen. I mean the Senate is controlled by the Republicans right now right so it's not gonNA happen. Well we we've been saying the and there's nobody who has not been saying the goal this is just to disrupt and try to tarnish the brand think dissecting. The goal is checks and balances man. I mean listen if you believe even country over party if you believe in you know presidents not being being lawless yes then you should agree with trump being a piece and by the way it might help trump trump. That's the thing is I think these types of things just embolden his base man but I think it might help him Let him know. Oh operate better fucked up. I'm fucking up when something like this happens. It's gotta be at least one person might be many as Yvonne. Somebody's the one that said Bob. You fucked fucked up. Chris make the call. I got it make it is. She is the one that he listens to. It's clear that out entire family. She's the one the other doctor now. He's been hiding turned on what she thinks. He's under a bridge. I would love to know what she thinks about this. She's been very very quiet. I would love to know what she thinks about this whole situation. She supports further hundred percent. But you can still. I think I think she thinks he's misunderstood. I think she she's struck me as someone who was as long. I mean you could say. Any child is brainwashed about their parenthood parent but also when you see your parents succeed against all odds right even even if you're not the child you start to believe what they say. I'm sorry early in your career. Charlemagne you start to experience this that the people around you they stop thinking you're crazy. They started thinking. Oh Shit maybe he's right. Do you remember you. Remember your peers earlier in your career when you start to like no never once when you can't level yet hold hold on when you came to New York and then breakfast club start to blow up. No your peers. Didn't start going. They still think fucking crazy. Enga- what's where's the gay part tunnel. No maybe the board the board was that you say that wasn't me saying you know what I was talking about. Search now I was talking about it might have been talking about. I was talking about a woman now reminded might have been talking about. The little girl got picked her kidnapping in New York. Did it for boyfriend. I thought she did because her mom wants to take her back to Honduras. She didn't want to leave. Leave that low dirty Bronx Dixie had and got them to be asked. Why would she have two doors? They were supposed it'd be much The word on the curve is yeah the family with moving back to Honduras why not from Earth wanted to move back to Honduras and she had a boyfriend in the Bronx. Who usually it's the other way right? You usually people are like dying to get from Honduras to America who have been in Honduras for two weeks so he had to go check out what they WANNA get. Dr Savage from Endara people love on doors right. Yeah I know my man Mr g I mean I mean I don't know I don't I don't know I think it's like any place everybody leaves. The country loves it. Your nose that very few people like come from their country and they go not fucked up their doors. That's where I got killed right. Let's not AH people go to do all day now. But she didn't want to move back and so she faked kidnapping with her boyfriend in in order not to move back so I could have been talking about that situation saying that because the peanuts are making make bad decisions but isn't her boyfriend super old. That's what I heard. I don't know if that's true and none of us. Oh Yeah he's committing a crime. Yeah they got a handle at I never got that from my peers from they still think it's luck crazy. I don't know but you know what I'm saying. I I know history will be kind. I that that that I know that I diagnosed or all at some point. They may not your peers. But what about. I think people who have achieved success recognized success us and they recognize the. I don't know the the qualities they'd get you there. Yes please other people. You're not here's a few who have already achieved Dago. He's got it he's on he's on to something And I think I think regular people I think people that are just on the outside looking in peers. There's no compared to competing. They're competing so they always WANNA paint. Jewish crazy are are off. Did you curious view you experience as well did you. Experience love from like an other markets like Dj's from other markets. Did they show you love for for the ones that were like close to. Dj's from other markets West Coast show. You love 'cause I like 'cause there wasn't this competition it was like. Oh that new guys dope and Dan. I don't gotTA worry about him. I mean radio personality. Show love mother places like you got plenty of friends in the radio industry. My main head. Kenji but You Never Ah. You don't realize that these people are also in competition with Intel. They have they have an opportunity to take a shot at you. You know what I'm saying so Out So so so I've seen things like say if You know take me Angeliki. They say Minaj Lee beefing or whatever. Then I'll see other personalities in in comments on on Instagram agrees not even just g but just like shade room or whatever saying things like should've stuck for her but right when they see me as a whole nother the story. Yeah you know what I'm saying so publicly you'll take an opportunity to take a shot but you and I said that before said you know When it comes to situations like that's gotta be very careful because that's when people try to infiltrate an ass when you really realize how they feel about you and your situation because could they really just tired of seeing you fucking win? So if they think that the titanic could be sinking they get in there they WANNA be invested goes puts weight on this ship. Make dishes saint fast leaned interesting. I mean was it eighty really. It ain't even really about her. That's more about thinking the whole boat. That's it because at the end of the day. And if you take two guys and a woman put him in a studio take this guy and put him in a studio whatever it is. Why aren't why your show doing what they're doing right down saying? Yeah so it's still a competition regardless of where in the same marketing could it not. It's still a competition. 'cause we talked about earlier the world is fucking fled so being the world is flat youtube videos go out. Social media follows All it is different so I they millions of US simple simple. Yeah Yeah that's interesting so you never oh really truly give it up. But that's why I give it up. Give it up because I'm not an insecure about my position. You know what I'm saying I I'd give it up I've always. That's how I've always felt I'm always tried to support the people. I thought were good now. I've really specific tastes like I don't think everybody's good I'm GonNa tell you know. Yeah yeah two thousand twenty Bro. Yeah it's just like you know when you know the cards that you're playing. Yeah you notice that have been planted. Yeah you know what's coming sometimes. You just gotTa talk a little Shit. Bro Two thousand twenty mayor. I have to start talking just a little bit more because I can we start right now. Okay let's start talking. I could I I really just a Lotta I. I just don't think it's almost awesome Roy Jones Shit like y'all y'all talks are maybe you just don't know maybe you just don't know who's really pushing things in this culture. Really connect the dots avenues constantly. Fight for your rep like we are living. Or what have you done for me lately. Society Man and like nothing wrong with that because we're out there talking to people but you need to constantly show what is going on. I'll give you a perfect example. All talking real wrestling your laurels. I guess is what I'm trying to say is we me. I don't know either. He just said that with no clue what that means. You're on Laurel and hardy rest. On your loyal to Michael North on this I was using was in hyperbole. We had a You know you know. I'm not analyze my people of Islam. Islam people to we've had minister Farrakhan automomous. Louis Farrakhan I've I I interviewed him in two thousand and five. Yeah I've I've interviewed him for his his documentary that you can buy on final call call dot com. I've had my breakfast club twice. You know a brother. Wesley Muhammad had him on brother. Tony Muhammad had him on another very dynamic speak in the nation of Islam. His name is brother. Newly mom had been following me for a long time. A couple of weeks ago I get a text from my man brother Don Muhammad and he was like we we. We need equal time. And whenever the brothers in the nation's they need equal time that means that somebody has said something about them that they would like to rebuttal right so On on Joe Biden fogcast. Joe Ask the question who killed Micromax and somebody in the room with very wide hips. Said something to the extent of He said somebody said he's ten of You Know Oh who did it. And basically said it was the and so the N. A. Y.. Wanted Rebuttal Connected Joel with brother Don. Yeah brother Norrie was supposed to be the on Joe's actual podcast but I think it ended up being a call in or whatever. Yeah I have no problem doing things like that and reason. I have no problem doing things like that. It because I want people who have something to say to be on every platform possible and I understand. Joe Has a platform that a Lotta people listen to solve that kind of that kind of you know I false narrative is out there. I want to give the brothers in the chance to clean it up and I'm glad that what they say I I I'll I thought that was the case. I didn't know that definitely not decay. Okay who killed them it it wasn't it wasn't ny the FBI. But I mean it's like it was the craziest thing in the world to think that anybody else would kill Malcolm X.. In that time where Jag who was taken out every black organization right like the same people who took on looking junior save people who took our Fred Hampton. The only difference is it goes back to what I was talking about earlier. If you can cause disruption in team at a time when the team is having turmoil yeah you kidding Malcolm Racial way whereas wants to break away from the. Yeah but that wasn't that was because because he didn't agree with Ah Lodge Muhammad's moral moral stands when it came to fathering children with other women right so so so so morally. He felt he felt betrayed. Because he's a guy that he believed in you know He. He looked up to this guy that taught him he. Also I think went to Mecca and felt like he found a different version. Muslims and things like that that we that was that was a part of it would always say that was a moment where the students should it became became. Well he went to a Mexican folk. White bitches again no no listen gotta be very careful when talking about people because we talked about the rap was pulling a rapid may not pull up within brothers and bow ties will not really they don't miss. OJ's something they are scarier. Bro Brother Musone in the wire. Do you remember that character. He was the guy that they hired they had they had a guy. You come down from New York the fucking hit man and he was there in a suit and tie amazing gone so long story short connect Noory Connect with Joe Berlinger. He gets on the PODCAST. Whatever and they of course I'm of course I'm a half brother? Nuriana breath club right. You had brothers are in Brooklyn so now people like Yo- you just trying GonNa do God and that was the first time I ever felt like saying you stupid. Mother Buddha Fuck you think connected did them like what like what I'd be saying when I'm talking about like this isn't new territory. We've been I've been. I'm doing stuff like this and giving people how many people would even make that comment enough for me to notice like what I notice all your yea like I feel like you might even be given oxygen to story is I. Don't give a fuck y'all motherfuckers GonNa Learn Two thousand twenty while Huckabee Goddamn crew you sound in giving a fuck you sound like someone call your hotel glitzy. No no no no. It's like dealing with the reality of the situation. They do a reality. Let's start with the falsehoods in. Let's stop with the false narratives. All right I'll credit and you deserve your credit and we'll call the credit credit is just about what's truth. It was not true. I think similar that is really really about what's what's truth and was not true. So if you make a false statement and by the way all of us have the AB- the right to do that if somebody makes a false statement about you. You're allowed to tell them exactly what the truth is a hundred percent and you have to control your narrative because if you don't do people will and some people don't fuck with you so they're going to control it in a way that you know like what do they say histories were written by the winners but I will say this. I think I think that I think this week shows you can't escape reality and you can't argue against reality. You can say whatever you want. You could try to paint whatever narrative you online. You can say whatever you want about people online. That shit will not stop the true from being the mother fucking truth. I don't care how many people don't believe it right. How many people believe allies still alive? I don't care how many people don't believe the truth is still the true at the end of the day. Reality will always ways prevail. This you are so right man.

We've been we've been winning for a long fucking tonight. I see blue face talking to Duval Mike. You don't even sit down. I don't know when an idea for twenty plus years before he was putting out hit records and all of that better music than blue face development texting me all morning about about what Honduras no you. Actually we asked me some fucking he asked me about trump and then he said eighty really bringing do Komo. Whatever but I don't know the context is but a memorial anyways? Those guys like Bluefin some like buffets. Relax mumber like knock it off. You know what I mean like. You've been in the game ago a year or so devolved into game twenty something years making money even understand you. Don't get it like you having a nice little moment. That's cute a right new-ball been around off with twenty plus years. He didn't even. He didn't realize that he was criticizing himself. Like in the Blue Blue Phase. One point goes yeah do ahead nice little viral moment. Everybody has those is. It's like who's talking say you are that and you're experiencing the slow decline of your viral. The moment I do want to go platinum. Yeah he went gold. You know what I'm saying. You went gold. And that's a hard earned. Comedians go gold with an album with a number one song in the fucking in country on the on the hip hop beats like he's like comedians shouldn't nothing on a comedian. Shouldn't do music Jamie Foxx Eddie Murphy. And he was like a stick to your podcast. You know it's a lot of rappers that are podcasters. Now you know what I mean. Wow and he was like e radio radio you got the clip buffets comedian trying to jump into rattling over. That means. They're not gonNA take for central and I give a can I give an interesting example. You know who referred to herself comedian for years before she became the biggest female rapper in History Cardi B.. If you look at cards earlier posts used to do it yes used to do sketches interesting. Thanks she called herself a comedian. Yeah she wasn't standup specifically but she didn't enter the game as like a rapper. Yeah by the way. DC on fly. He's GonNa blow up in the music. He's happy yes. These young fly reminds me of like what Jamie Fox does like. He's they got. He's got talented talented off. Like it's only a matter of time before. DC GETS A record following. That he has with comedy is GonNa blow the fuck up. So I don't know what the Fuck Doug Bluefin talking about. Comedians comedians can do damage everything comedians. Turn on the radio personalities yeah medium. Starting the PODCAST. COMEDIANS can be acted like comedians. Have such the long jetty. rappers like buffets usually don't have and I've got the blue face it's just the truth we've seen a million of those coming. I mean Bruce Bruce Dylan iggy she's got money stale right devolvement getting money for twenty plus the and then. I saw him putting up the celebrity networks. And I'm worth for a million and Duval's Walsworth one point five like network. What the Fuck Day right? I mean it's not even true. The celebrity net worth. They said I was worth crazy shit before I was worth anything. What is it you would work? There are three million dollars a four years ago I was brought out. Yeah see I'm worth ten. Ah How accurately and you kiss milliner more diverse. Yeah what was the feedback to the meek thing I know we got a guy here but what was the and from from what I see. I mean I just like having those on I just like having those conversations I loved it. You know what I mean. I just like sitting down talking. Ah Brothers who especially somebody like me who I've who I've watched from the beginning. I was doing radio and affiliate when Meek was on house arrest before he had a deal with Rick. Ross anybody so it was just like you know to see that grow and evolve and just say that one's import- remember department. They tried to shut them up and then he was like Nah people need to know about this. He was there's talking about being on. He said he was taking ten percents days. Hand Perkins sets but the reason somebody like me to tell. The story is because juice world's not here tale his Ryan Mack Milas headed. God bless those brothers. God bless today but Joe man is people that learned from other people's mistakes and learn from the mistakes he realized like a walking dead man. If I don't stop this shit like he said you can't be a fucking billionaire. You can't be a billionaire. He's going to say does it. So you'll be allowed here. They WANNA take more pills than they do. Make money and meek made a conscious decision going to get this motherfucking braid. And you can't. You can't do both we've been telling you I should for years. You can't do both pro. That pill shit is affecting it's not just rappers. It's not just like these poor like oxy and whites like is rich folks as his fucking up with two down in Salt Lake City in how Mormons can't have coffee offi. They can't have alcohol. They can't any of these things. But there's nothing on prescription drugs really so you got a lot of fucking devout Mormon compel heads dude. It's like a big problem. Feel sorry for those kids like when I see like you know trippy rate on notre retributive. When I see him say things like you're not doing don't do it? You know. Respect that decision. Yeah but I don't think he understands the tough road he's about to have you just quit. Cold Turkey yeah. Got To go to Rehab. You gotta go get treatment like you're gonNA have Withdraws like really going to affect you in a real way so I really do hope that those brothers get the The the help that they need is not going to be easy. I don't know why they fucking pills. They're trying to be wondering what they're trying to escape. La You gotta get to the root of she. That's why I'm so big on dealer. Mental Health admit to health issues because a lot of these kids kids have anxiety already. They have depression already. And so when you get on this when they start self medicating escaped even looking for get off the ship. I think that I think when it comes comes to like people who have success in why they want is because there's a lot of like fresher success not totally succeed but to like to not not only to succeed it up but to like to exist as that famous person in every interaction you have got to listen to Andrew Two thousand groomers I gotta I gotTa check that you talk talk about this. Yes because I've noticed that with with an we'd or like alcohol what they do is they create this little buffer between you in the world and the PB or interacting with and you and you don't have to like make every moment special for every person you talk to you can kind of just exist in your world with it. And I think did. Famous people crave that because on some level it can be exhausting trying to live up to the standard that all these other people have for you tale. My Therapist told me you've got to feel your feels right. Yeah and whatever. You're feeling in that moment. Lean into it interesting. I I don't have to be everything to everybody. Feel like fucking talking. I'm not talking initially when you got famous. Didn't you feel a pressure four fame when he was in school right it. You know what I'm saying. I was at a party right. Wasn't that heightened when you become this celebrity like even remembering guy code really popped off. Oh Yeah Yeah. There was an expectation. We think it's impossible to not become a caricature of yourself. At some point. I think the first go round with fame you become his character. Yeah well I think the frogger I think the first the first head of it the first hit of it is like Oh shit. Fuck fucking Fuck X. Y. Z.. Reasons I need you to do that so I need to do. More so nets level is more character than you realize issues exhausted trying to. I'm seeking me me you when you hear Jerry Seinfeld do his own voice and you're like what's the deal with salad. It's like seventy years. It's all top regular that's hard for you though is a comedian. Like you don't have to be funny. You have to be interesting right and ever since you're actually got to be ochre it's all of this. It was a good. I don't have to be funny but motherfuckers always WanNa talk. Because I'm always talking to. You Always WanNa have conversations bait. That's what you gotta just say something. And did he say dummy Shit you. What do you think Takashi six tell you how it tastes yeah there is? There is something that's interesting because you're saying that when you're a comic. There's one expectation for the interaction and that is laughter right right and with the guy coach it when it first came around. I wasn't prepared for it so I felt like I had to be funny. And every moment that have at these these people and then that fame disappeared and I got this. It was the best thing that could have happened. 'cause I got an experience with it. I saw it go away and then I saw how how much I value. Just not having an expectation interaction in now when it came back up through the youtube videos and obviously successful podcast and everything I don't feel the pressure to satisfy everything because I'm not proving to myself that I'm worth it anymore. That we've got cody was. I probably probably didn't feel like I deserve syndrome. Yes I probably had a therapist talk so now. It's like if you know me from stand-up clips. Most people see me on the street. They were as popular stand up clips. You often often you watch the clip. Funny Hey nice to meet you a guy coded. We're on TV for thirty seconds a day. Yeah you'll know who who is funny. You'll know if it wasn't so that it that was a real thing for me. It was like just getting comfortable in what I am who I am and there's nothing that does that better than having a fan base of folks do instead of a network to Fox that you might because the fan base the number can just pull the rug out whenever they want right the fan basis I now we got to where we going right we on. Hbo On Netflix. Hulu where are we going right. And I I WANNA give you guys props for this. 'cause I've noticed I both of you guys in terms of your actual one interactions instead of just a movement like on the street. You guys always have time for people. I know some celebrities who don't buy you know what I mean like. I've seen you guys around enough people. I've never seen either one of you guys like never now I would never find some people do a lot of people do but a lot a lot of people but listen they might change next year get it. And now that he's getting everybody growing in their respective field. Me She the load to this. I'm getting a little different. You know I just know. Things are getting a little different. I've been in spaces where I have. I have seen people have to whisked three through. I can't I can't stop and talk to everybody. Yes I gotta get to. The stage are right for the flight. If I do stop you. It's over it's going. Don't be a a while so I understand why some people do that. Some people just assholes right. Some people place motherfucking earn the next year.

U.S. official says situation in Syria is rapidly deteriorating

"Special assignments including Ukraine as mentioned previously we have what are called the three Amigos and the three or migos our Secretary Perry again ambassador Volker and president trump has not only honored me with the job of being the US ambassador to the EU but he's also given me promised during his campaign I suggest we stop the back and forth by text will we now have more details on what happened in those five between Saad Land and Billy Taylor the acting ambassador to Ukraine that's a review on September night Taylor texted solid react clear no quid pro quos of any kind the president is trying to evaluate whether Ukraine is truly going to adopt the transparency and reforms that presidents alinsky unlisted co author of Russian Roulette Cynthia Oxygen and Paul Butler both former federal prosecutors and MSNBC legal analyst David they're saying the president told me something I don't know it was true and it makes it look like there is a conspiracy and I'm kind of didn't really know what was going on there's a lot of what he says I breaking news on a pivotal text exchange that's probably the worst news possible for Donald Trump Gordon sunland the wealthy hotelier who her and eternity in diplomat time Saad texted back bill I believe you are incorrect about President Trump's intentions the president has been crystal trump in a phone call according to a person familiar with his testimony for the Washington Post he also plans to testify that quote he has no knowledge of whether the president was telling him Haydn Taylor wrote quote as I said on the phone I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign almost five hours blow your thoughts this is this is a classic case of someone jumping off the ship before he believes that ship goes down because he's truth that at that moment it's only true that the president said it not that it was the truth well out of disgust David Corn Msnbc political into the administration withholding millions of dollars of military aid and a promised White House meeting in an apparent attempt to pressure Ukraine into investigating Joe and Hunter and Attorney General William bars religious crusade plus updates on Turkish led forces advancing into Syria now that trump has all but abandoned the Kurds trump named as US ambassador to the European Union after sunland donated a cool million dollars to trump's inauguration fund is expected to testify to Congress this thirst nick defying orders by the White House and the State Department that he not cooperate with the impeachment inquiry the focus of the testimony will be those text messages in September and it was trump who was the source of his language that there was no quid pro quo sauna will reportedly say that he quote relied on the president's assurances in good faith they can be contradicted by facts but he's still in trouble I mean the ship may be going down and it's far off of off far away from land yeah and welcome to A. N. Joy We got a packed packed show for you today including the latest on impeachment from Congresswoman and House Judiciary Committee member for Millage I Paul Eight and pass these along to tailor the news was first reported by The Washington Post reports that Saban Lund's language in the text was related to him directly by for trump and if he and others start to find the White House and and actually abiding by the law and testifying in front of Congress that's bad because that's what happened with the in July right and Taylor the whose the only one who seems to understand that what is that what they're talking about is wrong says this can't be done I quit he uses the language he was still wants to be a hotel magnate when this is all done yeah and that's why he's doing this with about before I go to my my legal eagles on this psalm land the law that if he is subpoenaed to testify he must show it because other people have just pretended that that's not the law right he asked to show up and what's happened in the past is people long hours between Saad Lind's reply according to a person with knowledge of Sunland plan testimony will say that he called the president in the interim already happened this is trump's cover story and again this is gas lighting because if you read the transcript came out I can you give me missiles I going stop me and strolled herself right in the front hall and endeared them to try and stop and they didn't but let me just say this you know on being told to say as a cover story or is that the truth right he's saying he doesn't know the answer to that bill tailored the diplomat who this text is with is saying there's a quid pro quo this is completely wrong he says it directly Tucson and by the way the this is part of the defense apparently it was not a quid pro it was a quid pro quo but unfortunately ambassador Ianovich Ianovich who is a strong woman just said screw you is the woman going takes the woman yeah embassador to ambassador to the European Community Ukraine is not part of the European Union so why did trump outsource have been have it wanted to show up and they've hidden behind the talking points of trump and then they don't show up and Congress hasn't done enough about it to force it so campaign then I'm not going to give you the funds that you need to maintain your country to maintain your security to not get taken over they depend on US military for their survival as a nation state and so when the President says if you don't help me with my -struction charge Don mcgann wouldn't testify and so the White House is trying to hold the line nobody says anything yeah this guy is worried about his own reputation now this task of dealing with Ukraine's of trying to get this again trying to get help for his political campaign to saalom apparently he knew that solemn would get the job done and again that I totally agree with Cynthia that Sahlin is not going to be a hero in this on the question of whether or not the White House can actually stop Mr Sunland from saying this to Congress whether he can stop him from testifying because corrupt one this is the person who's familiar with Sunland testimony then his testimony will be that it was a quid pro quo but not a corrupt what I'm GonNa go to you on this is there such by the Russians that's a corrupt quid pro quo one question is why is why is solid the doing this remember he is the as a non-corrupt quid pro quo not if you're thinking so we remember the Ukraine they are very vulnerable to Russia's quid pro quo and that military aid approved by Congress was being withheld by the administration but we know minute was withheld Donald Trump's chief acting chief of staff did it the trump al mood according to the person who spoke to the polls okay I'm not sure how that's different than normal and then also the NBC News reporting on this as last night is that the Individual Flint before you get carried away the great truth teller he's GonNa solve the day yeah this guy is not a great witness as he gives us some stuff on the Biden thing now trump was obsessed with the server the whole conspiracy theory you have the democratic servers and that the Russians had an attacked and it was receivable that someone had any series of conversations with Giuliani and that did not come up and so now he's playing dumb I still think he's not a hero but he's with knowledge of this testimony said that Sahlin didn't doubt the president or he wouldn't have reassured Taylor about the sources saw had no independent knowledge of whether or not there was really pro quo now what we're learning it seems to me from Sunland is that that line was literally delivered to Sunland by Donald Trump so the question being is that just what he was trump okay but he is still pretending that he doesn't know what Hap- mystery to have what happened even of course he knew exactly and apparently bringing in this sort of Faux diplomat Mr Sondheim who is really a trump crony who's brought into diplomat and the people who were being excised from it all right let me just say one thing about this quid pro quo question you could have a perfectly lawful quid pro quo it could be you have to do this for your country yeah about conspiracy right that that's the point here this is allegedly a conspiracy between Rudy Giuliani these two nefarious sort of guys out in the ether that he career diplomats who knew better Taylor and Miss Yvonna Vich were being pushed out the door is that proof that they were trying to just keep it to the people who thinks someone will show that we've testifies that trump was reacting to the to the quid pro quo being discovered before it became public and be important thing being the DNC they act hack themselves I mean it's it takes two hours ago but Giuliani was obsessed with getting biden getting by it and so it's almost in unless touch but I can't believe that after thirty seconds of talking to Rudy Giuliani you can't stiff out that something is up here Geelani was convinced it was absolutely obsessed with up big ego big math Giuliani big ego big mouth somnolence got business to protect and he's willing to throw trump under the bus but Taylor telling him he talks about how he's talked he spoke with Alinsky and he gets it and trump wants the liberals right so that's in the transcript he's jumping all thanks for jumping off the ship ocean it's roiling and he has a long way to swim before it gets back to the shore so this is not trump had a lunch sort of was seen as a show of support because there is a concern now that everyone will start trying to protect themselves that really bad witness but even in the transcript we have evidence that he did no I mean in addition to Giuliani's tweets and Fox News and Bill Tiller telling me talk to a whole bunch of people who apparently believed that trump would protect them but when push came to shove trump looks out for donald trump hard here no pun intended is Rudy Giuliani who was also being Tomlin was in touch with Rudy Giuliani Giuliani says that he was more touch and silent sunless says teach me yeah I've just one other piece here that this is according to the Washington Post reporting the call between Sauna and trump lasted less than five minutes trump appear to be so again if Giuliani is relying on trump's loyalty Giuliani might want to talk to Michael Cohen might want to sessions he might want and in fact we have these associates of Giuliani who've been indicted and they've got this weird series the connections sometimes you to do me a favor though so I mean so there is a quick though is the proof and you're staring at it right yes right in our face so trump's super pacs and trump's inauguration committee and other times they kind of broke they don't have a lot of money so it's just really weird like where these guys are working for and with to try to dig up dirt on Joe Biden's son make up this dirt not dig up yeah because different absolutely right you're absolutely right and that's a fair correction people will start talking because they fear they're only legal liability and the only person who can't give somebody higher than himself up is Donald Trump happy says is this here's a pro and then so once once someone goes to trump and says hey you know there's something happening here trumpets though there's no quid pro quo you talked a lot of Republican sources and I've had Republican sources even say it to me that the line is GonNa be no quid pro quo that that's what they're gonna say that was the line that went out in their talking points that's what everyone has been saying ear Giuliani's clients other times they're helping him with his cases other times they're donating lots of money to concerns era of news text. MSNBC to six eight six six to subscribe feel pressure when I talked to your foreign minister who pressures me wouldn't play ball with a real diplomats ambassador and the person is a career diplomat and so if people didn't play ball they were out of it is that in and of itself the fact that Hi it's Katy Tur want to keep up with MSNBC while you're on the go subscribe to the Msnbc daily newsletter you'll get the best of what you've missed during this unprecedented the time it's totally appropriate right isn't that right yeah go ahead and say it could admit it it's okay to a person familiar with Sunland plan testimony it was a quid pro quo but not a corrupt one David Cynthia Paul back with me David this idea that this is how partly conspiracy you first and then Paul boy it certainly gets certainly consciousness of guilt and it certainly it proof that manner which they were doing it but let me say this about conspiracies having tried a bunch of these cases the it's win win now that's not true the folks over trump world seems to be at odds about cred quid pro quos secretary of state saying it's totally appropriate on your behalf it's policy it's trading policy it's not trading political favors and digging up dirt and you're going to be so let me pump up you're making Donald Trump denies any would broke in pressuring Ukraine to investigate his enemies and now breaking overnight we've Washington Post reporting the Gordon Sandland the US ambassador to the the nation's do this nations work together and they say boy goodness gracious if you can help me help you achieve y this is what partnerships do in this money it's seems extremely safari and again if there are that tight with Giuliani and if they're exposed than a process where people that are in the conspiracy and the more people with big mouse and big egos less likely to stay in at in this one what do we have we have trump works you've covered a lot of international news and the way that it works this is not how it works and I'm Cynthia mentioned this earlier you can have you will testify to Congress on Thursday that he worked with Rudy Giuliani to get Ukraine to investigate quote unquote corruption in exchange for a White House meeting me including making up information about an opponent and also pretending a conspiracy theory Israel is that a crime yes that's definitely what is crime the crime's yeah so that's where this is completely wrong and also might violate civil laws also might lead to a conspiracy and the other thing is is that t bigger yeah we're GONNA hold guys remnant we're going to take a quick commercial break we've got to pay the bills and we'll be right back we'll continue this conversation next assistance for his campaign to tamp that would have been a negative story so that's the thing that's a value in this case the thing that's a value is that if they could find somewhere a hat says he's going to be impeached of course absolutely so I mean I guess the question then is if there is a real quid pro quo which policy for policy if this is now policy for favors Willing to admit his own it won't be long until Giuliani is pointing at Sunland in Song Linda's pointing at Giuliani and that's the way this will you agenda could pro quo and foreign policy you send troops here that Caesar feud into that and we'll give you you know what replenish your supplies a we'll make a call to this other urge from a foreign national is a violation of federal criminal law he did not charge anybody in connection with the Russian investigation because he said actually wanted to use the resources of another country their their version of William Bar to go after and try to pretend this conspiracy there was true have you trump's defense is going to be well I was asking just that they take a look at corruption and investigate corruption and by that he doesn't mean what if nothing ever comes back I want you to turn and make it look like there's something right and that's going to help me in my campaign that's something of value campaign finance violation four which a hang their conspiracy theory on and if they could dig up dirt on a potential opponent that's the thing about is that what gets us beyond I think what frustrated people about the Mueller investigation and he will say his own political concerns he means corruption that was going on in Ukraine for the campaign finance violation there doesn't have to be approve an conspiracy theory this is almost like Donald Trump saying that he was going to send investigators to Hawaii saying that he was going to birth and was to equally crazy is true he wasn't sure he could prove criminal intent that is that they knew they were doing something that was illegal well now everyone's on notice that deal ego it looks well first of all it's an abuse of power which is basically all we need it's an abusive power it's the cover up with with taking this call at hiding it on the super-secret Sir to do something for me campaign Donald Trump right in return and there is no way that could ever want to get in on that a little bit more because Paul Bowler we're we're we're talking her and it's an obstruction it's also campaign finance violation because essentially what you're saying is I want something of value I want you to make this up I want you to dating evidence because not only do we have the ambassador saying as I said to you on the telephone it's crazy that we're holding up military aid in exchange for was it they couldn't put a fine point on what the crime would be of obstruction just one thing Mother did say is that soliciting apple resear- the Mafia back when district of New York is now in jeopardy while Butler I'm going to do this with you Giuliani and Donald the point of making up conspiracies because the two things one we talk a lot about the dirt that they wanted dug up a pretended or meet up invented about the violence the other thing they seem to want was the ambassador to say there's not a quid pro quo as you pointed out Joya took a five hours later before they get back and say oh the president says there's not a quid pro quo I'm just GonNa say you WanNa make a deal on Guiliani and then he gets caught up prosecutors go to Giuliani you WANNA make a deal give us the quit pro quo but if there is it makes it look even sleep easier because then it's an obvious shakedown and for that these text messages are super increased Dr are those three people in legal jeopardy well Giuliani looks like he's in legal jeopardy trump is an legal deputy negation based on that bizarre conspiracy theory that Ukraine had something to do with that investigation of Donald trump injustice clear the Russian investigation star it because the FBI and the Justice Department had concerns that Donald Trump was a double agent that he was working for the Russian that's why the Russian proving conspiracy theory if you prove the conspiracy theory know what that means it means the Russians did not attack rush about his effort to are you helping out Donald Trump with his campaign as I said to you on the telephone meaning that they'd had an earlier conversation about this when apparently nobody contradicted it is day five of Turkey's invasion into northern Syria launched after Donald Trump with donald trump at least Rudy Giuliani Donald Trump at minimum an William Barr who is also named in the transcript of saying work with Giuliani End Williams Cohen is in jail we come back to it. It is sort of similar Paul to the stormy Daniels situation which was that what Donald Trump wanted getting these payments done to stormy Daniels come in with his documents so far hasn't come in his the text messages that we have our from Volcker right we don't have anything from and we know they're all playing around on this what's and he is going to rail again trying to do everything he can to get that Ukraine's to investigate the Biden's and to investigate the origins of the Russian of making their biggest advanced yet against US allies. The Kurds we saw for the first time alleged atrocities carried out by Turkish backed narrow militia wars not approach and that same call though trump's that I'm not asking Ukraine for anything and we know that's a bald face lie Juliane rain now you have these four men you handed me this indictment here left partners and eager fruman one of them wound fraud guarantee which is hardly and two other men Andrey Kukushkin Erkki claims are Syrians trying to take back their land have been committing atrocities against the Kurds. NBC News Chief News News Chief Foreign correspondent Richard the US officials say include al-Qaeda and Isis supporters are also apparently taking prisoners Kurdish officials say Turkey is on a campaign to ethnically text messages and all kinds of information if he's really coming forward we're going to see a lot of documents and if he's just playing footsie to try to get himself off and throw trump under the engle has this report and we want to warn you that it may be disturbing NBC News has blurred out the most graphic images as Turkish forces are driving forward Chrissy right it's spiracy potentially to commit a campaign finance violation the only possible beneficiary of this fake dirt of this insane conspiracy there would be donald trump and his career who are now indicted do we now have Michael Cohen like situation where the two people the three people who are not named here but who are involved are Rudy Giuliani is this video today appears to show Arab militias executing occurred by the roadside as they shout a low bar and proud morning including to his own Pentagon pulled US troops out of the area and endorsed Turkey's military operation against the Kurds there is now evidence that Arab militias who and you have to do this for our country right right that's what foreign policy is all about with the problem with this one is you David Corn Paul Butler guy great thank you all very much enjoy the rest of your Sunday and coming up we will show you the deadly consequences of Donald Trump's national security decisions and that is next cleanse Kurds off their land Turkey is defending its operations saying that it's targets and those of the Arab militias Kurdish fighters who Turkey designates as for and what does he want to get rid of sanctions so that Russia can once again to business and get back in the has said as much all right Cynthia we back later saying filming filming multiple US officials tell NBC News the video and photographs appear genuine the Turkish backed militias I that the Russians ever attacked the election so he's trying to get Putin and the Russians off Scot free using US military assistance as leveraged investigation started we really quickly I want to stay just for one moment because there's this also this idea of the unindicted co-conspirator what we're just hearing You know Paul describe is it sounds like because he can't be president vice president we can't be indicted something that has to come out on Thursday like a little tip to see how much song lind is really cooperating as does he strike on his oil facility so he's actually reinforcing Mohammed bin Salman and telling him I got your back I got your hand you can go ahead and prosecute with president is backing to the hill that is a humanitarian disaster he's sending more troops more US troops to Saudi Arabia the perpetrator immodest single US soldier or marines moved there still that they've moved a little but they're still in Syria so trump statement that everybody's gone is nonsense they're not mm diminishing horrible brutal wars in the Middle East this is your first one to get out of the Congress has voted it voted it passed the law gone I don't know whether this is the military using it's very powerful bureaucracy fight the president and it's affection for its allies in the region offense without consulting his national security team funny you should ask that joy Esperer and millie have said one contradicting the president the president says he wants to pull out of the Middle East he wants to end stupid in stupid wars endless wars I agree with that one hundred percent well there's one in Yemen that the Donald Trump right now I'd impeaching for violating the Constitution in the United States pursuing an illegal war. Well you know it's interesting that you say that because if you try to think of what would be the connection a closed actually was fired on by the Turks I think intentionally to send a signal I want to back up for a moment though and I wanna I wanna put this in strategic perspective fight the president but they haven't moved anywhere essentially so thank you still under fire there's still under fire you saw the fifty Special Forces group that was season for keeping the relationship with the Turkish military but that doesn't mean you have to authorize everything that they want to do when they WanNa do it you you use your good offices states too and for Europe Turkey is the most powerful member of NATO outside the United States the most powerful ground force in Europe Turkey is eh one we have a huge hotel interest which he gets a license fee four and he's himself has said Saudi Arabia pays in cash and this is a huge strategic dilemma right now for the United my help and my support and my military support in Yemen you can prosecute as what Mr President if you want to stop the US participation in reputation at this war in Yemen which tells Mama Bin Salman you don't even have to negotiate with her on he'd started to do a little negotiating after he saw the president not react to the vacillating right now is it going to remain a member of NATO or not so there's a strategic reason for talking to air to want he won't be there forever right well this is horrific obviously the pictures are horrifying I wonder what you make of the fact that this decision was made by the president without even consulting the sector awesome protect himself he's GonNa come with no documents one big point we talk about the two favors that trump is for Biden and business is the business that he knew right but not not not business for the nation for Donald Trump himself his own economic interests with this is the most unwise inept incompetent diplomatic team I've ever seen at work in Washington and that's saying something very quickly this is Fox News the low is what seems to be the quo during the problem he coups though okay so let let me come to both of you on this I use Cynthia your power your compelling it's not to get dirt on Joe Biden but to affect the situation benefits all of your interest and you gotta deal with Damascus to the in between this abject support for Saudi Arabia and all they do and this abject support apparently one phone call is all it takes for Donald trump to do what Turkey wants is that itself and we've been tasked with sort of overseeing the crane. US Relationship Good Morning Good Morning Chris US official tells NBC News this morning the situation on the ground is deteriorating rapidly and join me now is Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson former chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell Kurds were working out a deal with Assad in Damascus deal not unlike they worked out and Baghdad the Iraqi Kurds worked out in Baghdad that is to have some autonomy Asian by the Turks Assad is going to take advantage of that and he'll be pushing them like a penseur from the other side and he'll he won't WanNa talk to them he won't want to give them anything so ain't right now the most the best part of Iraq is northern part where the Kurds are Baghdad he's go to Suleimaniya to vacation so that's what was working now with his and you vetoed it if the Congress were courageous it would override that veto but with the Republicans of course it can't yeah but that's the statement if our impeaching sources in a a trap between a Syrian Russian army moving north to take on the Turkish army that is moving south I spoke with the national security team yesterday we just warning the Defense Secretary Mr Esper- and what he's talking about with US forces take a listen now what we're facing is US record. Levels of depression and mental illness dispirited young people soaring suicide rates increasing numbers I angry and alienated alienated young male and increase in senseless violence and a deadly drug epidemic secularist and our allies have marshaled all the forces of mass communication popular culture the entertainment industry and it's all over the place now and it's turning into an al Qaeda like outfit which is very dangerous they have a global capability they can strike anywhere yes we we that no secular creed has emerged capable of performing the role of religion this is not decay this is organized destruction official bar is the country's chief law enforcement officer whose job is to carry out the rule of law and uphold the Constitution including the constitutional mandate of separation this is defeated is just poppycock Isis has metastasized it's in Pakistan it's enough Ghanistan in Nigeria it's in Sudan Eritrea I turned General William Bar essentially blamed violence drug abuse and mental illness on Unquote Secularists and society's lack of Christian values this is not just any trump alighted fifty who were very politically bad for trump if they should escape and beyond TV's somewhere for example so we've complicated Allston campaign to destroy the traditional moral order here is along with the wreckage wreckage of the family. We are seeing the situation majorly because the the guard force if you will for the bulk of these people were our Kurdish allies so now we are looking at and trump saying that could -demia in an unremitting salt on religion and traditional values in a speech at Notre Dame Notre Dame law school on Church and state fairly and equitably in a country of more than three hundred twenty million people who are not all even mostly evangelical right wing Christians back with me is colonel and the Iranians and the Russians and the Syrian main forces defeated the Caliphate we haven't even we haven't even captured Bar Baghdadi the leader Osama bin this is a national security crisis for Europe for the United States and for US troops it's worse than that even joy there are probably forty thousand family members with about twelve thousand Isis and we've surreal so you have that and then you also have these image these pictures of empty fields where Isis forces us to be held with they have now potentially escaped estate is ripping down the wall between Church and state because of course the fact is if you're going to be president and we're now Colonel Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson it's always great to talk with you thank you very much and coming up the chief law enforcement law enforcement officer of the mech suffice it to say that the campaign to destroy the traditional moral order has coincided and I believe has brought with it Wilkerson and back with me as well as MSNBC legal innocent the oxy Cynthia I wanNA play one another bite for you and I have a question on the other side this is William Bar about what he lodden of Isis so trump is just he's dealing a dreamworld of his own political making it helps some experience in the world and with foreign policy US Attorney General the United States is not a Catholic priest or bishop and he can have that opinion I don't happen to share it I think he's up become turning the Justice Department to an arm of trump's personal legal defense bill stop supporting all these looking for the good old days back when white men were in charge and women new their place and there were no there's nobody in color in charge of anything and I'm sure he misses those days but that's not his our faith and values in full vigor the times are hostile to this public agencies including public schools are becoming secular rather he does apply to be the president of Notre Dame although I don't think the jesuits would want him I would rather he applied to be the pope although I have to like the pope we have but stop lying to US commence suffering and misery is there something wrong with that being the mandate and that being the charge of the Attorney General of the United States right rising increasingly actively promoting moral relativism if ever there was a need for a resurgence of Catholic education and more generally religion break for it even if those schools seemed to appear to exclude people of color that's been a nagging issue among people in the far religious right for a long time policies that are anti Christian opinion like for example putting people in cages that to me is the larger problem than whether or not he gives a speech in front of a couple of hundred law students that requires a New Jersey public textbooks to be open about the fact that certain people in history were gay for example Bayard Reston I went to school I didn't this under the radar Vattel that has been for decades by people who want to put their children in Catholic schools who want to also have a public they want also tax white male I yearn for the past attitude it is evangelical pastors chaplains who are proselytizing for g obviously attorney general but I'm the scheme of things that he's done wrong as attorney general view this is small right right like for instance stop lying to us I is more important to me officially affiliated schools it is today and I ask you this question specifically on this because I have a question for you specific on this because there is that generally says to me as somebody WHO's watched embar fighting to undo that what is it about freed her tailing the religious freedom of just schools is one more bite we cannot have a moral renaissance unless we succeed in passing to the Next Generation Sus Christ in the armed forces in the ranks of the armed forces when people are very vulnerable like at basic training where baptizing hundreds of them each training cycle plus percent a good Christian country point six percent but only twenty five point four percent of Americans are Evangelical Christians Mainline Protestants fourteen point seven percent historically or whether it's at ranger school where they catch them when they are very very vulnerable and get them to be soldiers for Jesus and this I'm not making these phrases up him in Washington DC so that's happened before we've had people with the same idea before but in this case you were mentioning to me in the break this is actually bleeding over even into the military the minimum LGBT people that he seems to be saying I promise I'm going to do that right it's not about religious freedom in fact in that speech he also was criticizing the New Jersey it is it is I when I was watching bar I was thinking of Torque Mata in a business suit and what's happening in the military is a reflection of this sort of next up these surprise departure of ships Smith from Fox News what we're able to break Black Protestants six point five percent Catholics which Mr Bar is one twenty point eight percent so this is not a majoritarian view that he has on this evangelical side it's just his own sure it about people and he is railing against that particular law it's not about religious freedom it's about it's about everybody has to adhere to what he thinks and by the way they should get attached were kit the airwaves in one thousand nine hundred six his surprise resignation on Friday and you could literally hear the surprise in fellow Fox News Anchor Neil Cavuto came in sure sailors airmen marines they do not oh their allegiance to the constitution they elope they owe their allegiance to Jesus Christ our savior these are the phrases these chaplains us we even have one chaplain in the reserve component who has said publicly in uniform that sold a handful who dared to challenge the tweeter in chief here's an example it's crazy what we're watching every day it's absolutely crazy well and like you I'm a little stunned little heartbroken good morning view but he's got a lot of power all right thank you very much we'll be right back after this quick break thank you Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson thank you Cynthia oxygen he keeps repeating ridiculous throwaway lines that are not true at all in sort of avoiding this issue of Russia as as if we're some kind of fools for asking the question news that isn't and disseminates fake news it is think China pays the tariffs the wall is going up historic inauguration crowds Russia probe a witch hunt without fear or favor in context with perspective even in our currently polarized nation it's my hope that the facts time we now have an attorney general who has vowed to make his as long as he's attorney general he says the Department of Justice will be at the forefront of this effort to fight for the most cherished values religious freedom together with my colleagues we've written a first draft of history and endeavoured to deliver it to you while speaking truth to power Chris tensions between shop and the conservative opinion hosts who dominate the Fox airwaves ship was a rather lonely voice of criticism of Donald Trump at the network one of again welcome back to am we'll call it this ships it is Shepard Smith the Fox News anchor known as to as many fans was one of the first hires as the conservative report that trump's principal henchman attorney general William Barr met with Fox News Chairman Rupert Murdoch Behind Fox Chairman Rupert Murdoch behind closed win the day that the truth will always matter that journalism and journalists will thrive this is my last newscast here baird restroom was gay and that was part of his that was part of his identity and it was hidden and New Jersey has said no we're going to be we're going to be very closely held it was only known according to my sources at the various highest levels of Fox News that he was negotiating his exit that said You know I was slum in those doesn't matter I didn't matter you can sit and tell them how many Muslims are in the we have wiccans in the rights we have what is what that is outside the mainstream well he's also going to be one more bite for you and then I'm going to have a question for the corner but I wanNA play more bite view this is he's also pushing these add a Catholic college I guess it makes sense to push for more re- that's the group Jedi Knights in the ranks not a lot of them do and the constitution says all of their rights are supposed to be protected I just wanted just for the audience this is a seventy legal assessment and when he was asked he said unchallenged. Judge Napolitano is a fool attacking our colleague gap was told to directed to stop attacking Tucker really the network chosen the pro-fox pro-trump side over him so he was basically president of the Teradata del Group Charlie Sykes Msnbc contributor and editor in chief of the bulwark engaged Sherman Msnbc contributor and author of the loudest voice in the room a bit little example of that take a listen a partisan guest who supports president trump was asked about judge Napolitano's president said that law enforcement professionals have requested the five point seven billion dollars it's hugh requested it and it's he who said he would own the shutdown he decries I need an idea to buy cereal noise from windmills causes cancer it's endless news of ships departure came coincidentally I'm sure just one day after the New York Times the journalism being done at Fox News I think some of the twitter reaction due to his departure that somehow signals the death of news at Fox is kind of a joke surprise because you know his feud with Tucker Carlson brought to the surface tension that ship Smith had been feeling about being sort of the only voiced did not be channeling the state TV line at box news and so really when when they went back in or that is my sources told me coverage you know chef Smith did some real news on his program but let's not conflate that with the idea that there was this robust legit including this one for tens that the answer is obvious he's not very partisan at all the judge Napolitano was named check who's here to offer legal assessments on our air in our work home is repugnant repugnant it's not clear if that was you or me but someone's are unlike maybe some day side hosts I'm not very partisan and it was a sincere question it doesn't seem honest to me when a host any host on any great and we to stay current Wilkerson because we've had a previous attorney general who covered all of the new statute and sort of classics he felt where offensive could think of right you've been on Fox News you know the atmosphere there aided it surprise you that ship Smith didn't last an environment where it's all trump all the time and we're yet I don't even know it's Tiffany Cross Co founder and managing editor of the beat DC Eric Boehlert author and media analyst Tara Dow Del Business and political marketing consultant and you know the the odd man out this was not surprising that he would choose to walk take the exits but I just WanNa make one point joy that sort of getting lost Fox News and have since Roger ailes created it so yes they're losing a talented anchor but I don't want news around him is that what you're saying because he dropped out for second okay but the point that was made tiffany about the ship versus Tucker ongoing let me play no I don't know DC leaving that's a shame is he leaving because yours are trump's base and so I think another issue is that I know when I was a guest on Fox I got the most vicious vitriolic hateful email holes in twitter messages and any basically any platform that operated on was flooded with such a vile rhetoric directed at me in a lot of it so you know focus specifically on facts and reporting surrounded by all these people who are openly homophobic who are openly trump offense and like I said bullied him repeat tiffany one person wasn't Chris I tried to think of anyone on that channel who does seem to every so often raise their hand up in opposition to Donald trump those the only ones ratings navy's leaving I assume as Lee because he had bad rating he had the worst rate exert fox I mean tear this is a man who in his own mind owns Fox idiot sitting across from me either way let's let's have at it but it is the grains that they play with guests I can't imagine what they did to openly gay men whose very honest reportedly and I would echo gives point I mean I used to do Fox News I made a very conscious decision not to do the network anymore but they do play a lot of games with their guests a some of the backstage things that were happening if Gabe and others have reported it was a bully campaign so I wonder if Melania trump is going to be best this whole situation because he was treated I'm actually surprised like tiffany had he did last long in also look a lot of the viewers of Fox are essentially trump's base it is there one in the same box only critical of the president and for just demanding that an airing facts occur so so I can't imagine not only having to deal with both about this sort of management sort of weirdness going on there where you have some people like the former speaker of the House Paul Ryan claiming that they want to try to change the orientation of the network away from was extremely racist and so I know for ships Smith I've heard that he has gone significant amount of that kind of backlash and feedback for being meted upon them when they attempted to just see with open eyes what was happening in Washington but it does seem that what we're Fox is going to even a harder term you know it does seem that Judge Napolitano Chris Wallace on occasion when on on Sundays on his Sunday show and chips did take the chance of getting that kind of backlash cannot tell fundamental truths about Donald trump on Fox News you cannot talk about how he is a congenital liar a racist clearly an unstable individual now the Fox News is there only to protect defend him that even the polls would be manipulated to make him look good so that's his attitude toward Fox News I'm GonNa Gabe is a lot of reporting we on air and for Tucker Carlson say that he's not partisan that's very consistent with the level of truthfulness that you see from that network yeah and you're going to be you've done this network right I'm very fascinated by the perspective of people who've actually been on the network that the atmosphere to me for a long time did not seem to be that conducive to ship Smith doing what he wants to do and about regarding trump you might wanna think again look you know dissent is not tolerated occasionally there is criticism of trump policy and we saw that with Syria and the Kurds but and gave up got to go to you first were you as shocked as Neil Cavuto was that this ship Smith is out yes I was shocked because he kept his UH show represented a window within Fox News into reality into a fact based world it only lasted sixty minutes a day that window has now been shut you do you talk about being bullied and listen to this cut four for my this is Donald Trump responding to chestnuts resignation take a listen overstate the importance of chef Smith leading I appreciate that we you drop that for a moment and what you were saying but I think the point you were making is that you were saying that there wasn't like a lot of robust talks about you know he left on his own accord this thing was handled so strangely you do not have a high profile television departure unfold away and he never changed the network I've gay pointed out in his great reporting the network around him changed and sal is shocked that he lasted for two decades he was really bullied there at the end of the day when you read in the trump era has everything is a conspiracy everything is on the table and it is certainly within the realm of possibility that the United States attorney general applied pressure twenty-fifth that Wednesday trump of Fox releases a poll that was unfavorable to trump on that same Wednesday attorney general bar meets with Rupert Murdoch that Thursday leave friction inside of the organization from your colleagues who want to basically create state TV state TV continue but to also deal with viewers and the one is not just partisan they're really part of the culture personality of Donald Trump and his communications I it surprised me that lasted so long now he was one of the original anchors to join the network and it is now hermetically sealed it is Fox is trump propaganda around the clock and just a quick point I'm I'm very dubious about this public explanation it states is is king they can't do anything wrong it was like that when George W Bush was president and it's even more like that with Donald trump because he has more of a cult of personality Yup wasn't doing that on a daily basis but as you showed that clip he was certainly tiptoeing to a key line which is trump lies about everything all the time now ships are hardcore defensive donald trump and that anyone who's trying to change that it seems that they're going to fail sends a clear message to everyone at Fox News I mean if you're thinking about raising your hand rally praising Mini Fox host but not Smith and then Friday trump resigned let's play this is an cut three this is all of the praise for everybody but take a listen now they've been reduced to like tweeting Bible verses and sort of being vague about whether foreign nations should be allowed to meddle in our elections does the exit of somebody like backlash from them as well for basically wanting to have a full airing of the backs and Eric Barker the same to you as a longtime media observer and critic we'll talk with Donald trump understands it it's his network it is and so does it surprise you the chip is gone and are you surprised he lasted this law no it doesn't surprise me at all notably new phenomenon and and it does reflect what's happening with conservative media and the conservative audience and this is where it gets to your question is one of the reasons of course that Yep even reduce the level of courage that's already quite low or non existent on a lot of people's minds among people that are Republican politicians because now did he announces this on national television his immediate resignation he goes out the side door never speaks to the newsroom to me this suggests was very quick very chaotic and yes it was the day after the Attorney General of the United States met with the chairman of Fox News people can say well that's a conspiracy we have learned one thing important was small in terms of the overall picture of what Fox was doing but as Eric mentioned before that door is now closed yeah let me play a little bit of Congressman Harley consumers of media one conservative media to be a safe space and what's going to be interesting to watch this as trump's behavior becomes there were these windows their worthies doors where fact based information might get into a portion of that audience and that's why shop was is President Bush to the to President Bush's this cult of personality that we have right now this this this insistence that you must praise the orange God king all the time is really her to get someone fired from TV show well let-let's we're looking at the time line right now this is shepherd the ship Smith Tucker Carlson feud really begins on September Charlie because you worked in in right wing talk radio you know the game you know how it works but you're only allowed to have one opinion on right wing media and the opinion is that whoever the president of the news who might be descending is going to become more and more intense so what is interesting is that is that Fox News has been an alternative reality silo for some time but when you have a different perspective they'll tell you they're talking about midterms and then all of a sudden the top it goes to North Korea and nobody has told you anything until the prompter comes up it was never a problem you're not seeing any courage on the part of Republican elected officials is they know where the base is and also Fox knows where its audiences and increasingly conservative Moore indefensible and more embarrassing the pressure to defend him is going to be more intense they lack of tolerance for voices on Fox at this meeting very very interesting time interestingly timed meeting between William Bar the attorney general and Rupert Murdoch ought to be investigated take a listen will you can't win well let me just point out though that that didn't use to be like this I mean they used to be able to criticize very suspect but I do know that Shepard Smith hired a high powered lawyer weeks ago to begin negotiating his exit from Fox News so that was in trump's personal attorney at this point and Rupert Murdoch and the exit of chefs myth it's a great question joint I did a lot of recording your sources emotion well before Bill Bar sat down Rupert Murdoch that said you know I think the fact that that meeting took place at all is is news worthy and of impeachment of a Republican president and we have his attorney general sitting down with the head of a right-wing news network that just smells all kinds of bad close to shop Smith told me earlier over the weekend that the meeting was not connected with his departure I'm continuing to look into it obviously the timing is the Fox and for what purpose could that possibly be especially in light of the fact this is a happening exactly the same time the president of the United States yes and I think Fox News for their own credibility whatever shred is laughed and that's not much really owes their viewers and explanation about what the Attorney General was doing meeting with the chairman of the Ruda who's on the oversight and Government Reform Committee doing an interview with a friend of the show Dean for his radio show and he asked him whether or not league which is Judge Napolitano who is even more so than ship Smith Seventy who was explained in very plain language why Donald Trump has done is either legally problems and worthy of being explained we should point out that Republicans created box news so that Watergate would not happen again and now we are on the verge I think it is within our purview because we wanna know what the hell is the attorney general the United States doing meeting with a with Fox with the head blue dots how good are they how about Greg Greg us they may now eight judge Janine I'm just rattling some names but they're just terrific interest critic of Donald Trump or not even critic somebody who was laid out and explained the legal jeopardy and the impeachment jeopardy that Donald Trump is in the most eloquent combat and the legendary Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham Moses knocking them out of the Bar Maria Bochum and the as we show people jumping out of the buildings and it wasn't in the name of journalism it was to sensationalize so even its heyday it was yellow journalism at best and Partisans Fox and friends they treat us great and how Jesse waters to Tucker has been very good I have to say four or five six months in theory will be defend Donald Trump against impeachment and you've now seeing the exit of the guy who most frequently booked probably the most votes he will have to rely on relationships with other anchors and producers to get airtime I think that will it's a great point you raise joy interesting so do you think you've written a lot about the cowardice of Republicans in Congress who always seem to be constitutionalist and had these values and it's a box to be kind enough to give do you have any reporting on whether there was any connection between this meeting with William Bar who's basically think just if we pull back for a second and just look at the danger in journalism because when Fox I started how they started attracting so many viewers on nine eleven they were one of the few networks way I wish more people had the context of what print reporters do when they have so many people opining on what's happening in politics and without that I do think crass state TV at its worst as time went on so when you think about that WHO's going to replace ship because you do have to find a way to penetrate that layer of willful ignorance that these trump sycophants I do think there are people on both sides of the divide just pay no attention to what had right in politics even though it definitely impacts their life and so you do wonder and Fox look they dominate their time slot all talked on the phone I talked to the president and he is concerned and so last night he directed that we begin deliberate withdrawal of US forces from the northern part over the next important to track over the next days and weeks how many appearances judge Napolitano we'll be getting on the network or less right and typically ship he's still dominated his time slot but was one of the lower rated hours if and when you ask people how they get news I mean cable news has left newspapers in the death and I don't say that in a carnivorous the corporation champion a second but I wanted to stay with one minute on the reporting front on that very point because as you said the purpose of Fox News for the next at least have he was the one voice at that network who could do that and so this with his absence it continues this dumbing down of the American electorate and this isn't really a partisan issue because attic or or going to lead to a peace with chef not there his bookings I presume get reduced the number without question I mean clearly title before I i WanNa get into the Attorney General Barclays and I meant Shep resigns I if I did say something other than that I meant shepherd signs and I want to it just leads to less intellectually curious people casting ballots and having an opinion on what's happening with our country and you see that at the town halls with these congress men defending their stance on and a lot of them are getting their information unfortunately from Fox News Ya the woman who said I didn't know the Muller reports said anything that's a disservice as an American all conspiracy theories including him being one of the main person who has pushed this conspiracy theory about Russia not really attacking our election that it really being Ukraine me more autocratic but if you have that happening at the times and then you have fox losing really one of only two anchors who ever challenged the president now there's only one guy left all once again publishing Peter Schweitzer from this pretend organization that supposedly looking out for government corruption but who posits holes there's Peter Schwartz or writing this op-ed about everything The Biden family did wrong doing it in the name of corruption he wrote an entire column about allegedly who's reverberates beyond just the Fox audience I think that's another point that we don't spend enough time on the stories that they report have influenced beyond just their audience who is that the New York Times is now being criticized again for innocence repeating the exact same scenario that got us where we were in two thousand sixteen the New York Times you know marketed that thing like it was the most important book of the campaign every other news organization pointed out that book was riddled with errors. The New York Times added we're Kushner right yeah right so we have you know if the Times isn't gonNA learn any lessons from two thousand sixteen and the scary part is if the time doesn't think there's any lessons to be learned from two thousand six vision news audience we'll have probably idea what the case is against Donald Trump they just won't be told it then what I think is departure is also going to have a chilling effect so if you that's an important institution like the New York Times not learning any lessons from two thousand sixteen I mean Peter Schweitzer wrote this basically fictitious hit book on Hillary Clinton effect on him would he want to still continue to push back in the way that he's been pushing back against false information and so that's the other thing and then Fox also reverberates there are an anchor at the network will occasionally pushes back you're going to be less likely to push back and then if you are a judge Napolitano who's a correspondent you wonder about the children who hid the democratic service because the Democrats themselves I mean you have print media who were also seeming to I don't know if it's a sense of fear of really challenging a president who's families cashing in on their politicians their families apart political roots trump is never mentioned in columnists kids are never mentioned gene. We're in trouble yeah I'm very quickly Tara your assessment of where we stand now with a shepherdess Fox which I think it's important that gay pointed out it's not as if there were exclusive with that book and somehow forgot ever tell readers the book was riddled with errors and and now here we are in two thousand nineteen and Lo and behold you open the New York Times and lots of their you know there's a little of it they're now there's one guy left and maybe Napolitano gets on every so often we are now going into an impeachment which a good chunk of how's Chris Watson he occasionally challenge the president how does that impact us as we go into an impeachment of somebody who is displaying very clear autocratic tendencies. I mean if we've got US taps Charlie I'm GonNa give you the last word on this because you know I don't know if you are you still a Republican my friends I don't know if you still remember the party but it doesn't sound like it doesn't sound like the Republican Party has much did you know it's unfortunate that more people don't have time to take in the sort of fuller context you can get from print but we're also this week had not resigned the other thing we were GonNa talk about the one of the reasons we invited out if Fox is shutting the door for that's the key yeah that that is the key point is you're gonNA have a huge portion of the electorate in public hearings as well but we want to make sure that we meet the needs of the investigation and not give the president or his legal minions you know that's GonNa play into how Republicans react if they get fed back all of this information on this propaganda from Fox from their political base they're not going to move on is going to be living in an alternative universe they will not hear the same fact they will not hear the same narrative and to your question that you asked me a little bit earlier I mean obviously in all of this and so I I think that the lesson of the ship Smith you know in story is that there really is no business model there's no much more aimed after the break we may very well call some of the same witnesses or all the same witnesses it is certainly bad for this public discourse where you would hope that you would have an informed electorate where we can at least share the same welcome back a House Intelligence Chairman Adam shifts hearings are driving donald trump straight into the jaws of impeachment and this week another major deposition may only make things worse for country's most enthusiastic Golfer routier in twitter despite opposition from the State Department Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sonnen is expected to testify before the House on Thurs do you sense that the caucus believes that the judiciary and that the impeachment hearings committees have a full and solid complete case for impeachment right now is coming out that corroborates the president abused the office of the president which belongs to the American people and betrayed our national security every single day joy you see this and it's a travesty to the constitution to our national security to our values every single day more and more evidence well I think that we obviously have so much in front of us that would merit impeachment but I think we WANNA make sure that we're getting all the facts because the opportunity to tailor their testimony and in some cases fabricate testimony to suit their interests in our republic if we can save it is worth it and that was the speaker of the House so we now have the speakers fully on board with this idea of impeachment in the as for trump skeptical voices in the conservative media and I think that that's going to intensify as you go through the impeachment process and the twenty twenty election and I think that's bad for Democracy Day and according to a person familiar with his testimony he will say he had no idea why military assistance was withheld from the Ukraine from Ukraine and that he relied on trump's assurance access the same information in the same values and that's simply not the case yeah we'll they even play the impeachment hearings will they even show them will they ever even see it and two games points that is the reason Fox was even created so they may be about to serve their original purpose Eric Boehlert Tiffany Cross Terra del Charlie Sykes Gabriel Sherman. You guys are great thank you very eighty by asking a foreign country to interfere in our elections and withholding military aid that Congress had appropriated for that country every single day was the deputy secretary of State for Europe and Eurasian Affairs Gordon Zahn lend the aforementioned as we mentioned him today ambassador to the European Union tea or Alrich you know Sunland is

There's like cosmetics and shit really. Oh yeah the girl is like. I know nothing about the Jenner's okay. I have a people dot Com and enough magazine DOT COM habit. So I know it's not like you're watching their reality TV show more than should hate reality television but I do read these. This is my dirty secret. This is my no. You've always been your little people dot com headline lady. I read the shed so I know more about the Kardashian people and I really would like to admit but these are the complexities Aikman. Lafayette me. That's fine it's complicated. You're also an unbelievable snob about all this stuff. Yeah I'm a shit. Yeah you'll trash out. Yeah in the right way in my way. Yes you can make your Jenner youngest one. If you look at her Google her when she's fourteen or sixteen she's had more plastic surgery than women triple her eight looks like a completely different human being really and has made but she is a billionaire these Kylie cosmetics. She is like such an influence. Our I didn't know that she was in Had illegit business. I kind of wrongly thought. All of the Jenner's were just sort of famous for being famous. All these kind of legit businesses but like hers is she's really killed it. She's good for her. The right combination of things like I support that and she seems the least trashy of all of them. If we're being honest ext is Dr Phil Oh God. I hate this house. It's the worst. It is in some good redemption here. Mindy failing failing hates this House game indicate and take her to the house where I end. I replied in. Thank you into Joe Kimber for posting. This an in joke. Well I don't even know how many comments or a bunch of comments people into it but I said which houses I would wanna be in I picked to NSF. And I just WanNa say I feel really bad for welfare indicating because that houses. Shit I was thinking will smith you said well Farrell. Yes different people like I'm super. No welfare will be great.

I have to rescue welfare and many of them. Of course welfare can take care of. I cannot live at this house for. I can't even visit the house number. Two Reese Witherspoon might live here Lin. Manuel Miranda K. So you've got reese for wine and good conversation. Yeah you got lin-manuel bringing his talent. Has Everyone seen that John Krasinski thing I posted up and it went on fire. So did you watch it again? I watched it and I I called. Rubiun away from whatever TV. She was watching at the time. Which I think was. Pj Masks and I was like this is really good and like people are popping on and she was a little bit. She's watching because it's television and she will watch anything on screen she was like and I said okay. It's about to get good like when everyone was coming in. She waited way. Further down she goes has gotten good yet. I'm standing right now. So the Hamilton didn't grab her. It did but I don't know whatever she thought. I was bringing to the table or did not show up. Yeah Ruby wouldn't want to be in. Our House is in now all right. So Reese Witherspoon Lin Manuel Miranda this where it gets a little rougher you but where I was okay with it because we have a little bit of a disagreement here a little late name Miley Cyrus. I can't why doesn't she go into the Justin Bieber house like if I switch her? That's not how the game works. This is not a swap. Meet their kid because I can feel. Well see the next one now. Tom Cruise like I hate her face. I can fairly. I can't explain why I don't mind her and you know. I don't think I'm not some big fan but like a senior in interviews where I was where she's grown up. Not You know when she was just like sticking her tongue out every two seconds and a photo but I've seen her in a couple of things maybe. Snl was one of them whereas like all right. Miley Cyrus is not that bad. I can handle her. I think he's got a good sense of humor. I bet she's pretty fucking fun and a house I don't think she's is like I don't think she's like having a Jenner around for Christ's sake. I'd take Kylie Jenner over Miley Cyrus. But we'll see the next one. I I can totally handle and be into having some good conversations with but what your reaction going to be Quinton Tarantino. Oh God about your action is going to be killed me please. Now because you know at one point as the big Quentin Tarantino Fan but the talking verbosity is for both for about no. That's right I think you would have to steal away to your own. Little quiet corner lin-manuel Miranda miley Cyrus Quentin Tarantino and Chrissy. Teigen is the last entry she's hilarious. She's pretty funny she's hilarious. I don't know hilarious enough to balance out. These are the this. He's created some complex group dynamics I know and I will say that Chrissy Teigen had my favorite tweet about the You know our governor here in Georgia who we did not vote for or county Gov- Support Very Nash. Got National News for very stupidly saying About oh I don't know eight days ago. Six six days ago that he just found out that corona virus had symptomatic Spread in Chrissy. Teigen's tweet was. I am very dumb. I knew this was true. I can't really comment on that. I know nothing about her. Except hearing her occasional tweets. And I'm not even on twitter. But she seems like she's kind of fun and funny I will say she somebody who gets into the drama but manages to make it not dramatic and for that like I like her. I kind of prefer people that. Don't deal in the drama. Get how to do it in a way. Miley Cyrus is a huge deal. Breaker in Quentin Tarantino. I'm trying to picture myself trapped in corners trying to get away. Don't see you in a house with him going well whether Spain man all right keep going. I like I'm GonNa go and say this is one of my house. I was way down. Reese when men well. Miley Cyrus seems cool enough. Chrissy Teigen's fine and Clinton and I could totally jam on movies and I could totally walk back all the Times that I've said that he needs an editor and you could never ever get a word in edgewise. So but you're pretty good at letting people talk at you and your pretend that this house has some promise all right house. Three David Blaine. I really like the the The variants of the of the people. Here yeah I like some magic magic. He's he dated Fiona Apple so she's call seems kind of fun on a personal level and has a good sense of humor. I think but he's a little self serious but that might also just be the The persona I need to know a little bit more about him. But he's not dealbreaker. 'cause I don't know enough but he doesn't seem Borscht me and that's really what you don't want remember this is quarantine now. I know that Quentin Tarantino just made me jump off the fifth floor. Balcony Tino no good so next was my big deal breaker for this house. One hundred percent. Connie who I could not. And you know what which is funny because Connie's become conway and I'm not saying Oh back in the day but when his first album came out dropout came out I fucking loved it. It was amazing and that was sort of pre all persona. Yeah and it was really fucking good and Now just I couldn't live in the House with that guy. I'm fairly interested to witness narcissism happening and mental illness to be honest online. Been living with me. You're different than thank you here. I can't really talk about you right now. Though because I'm talking about cutting so keep the keep it to Jesus. Yeah exactly so easy or is it spelled with a y it could be. Jay On these things are not important to me. It'd be interesting to see this up close and personal level. No for real like if we really have written about this guy operating on like like over a period of like twelve hours because about my two months well that twelve hours a day ain't get into jump off a cliff territory but I'm or maybe not about him. Maybe he gets real. I think he's massively full of Shit but also I don't know it's interesting. He's like He. He's a cult leader like those people are really interested as a crazy genius to him. Yes of course but he he's totally like he incites prophets and things. I'm interested in that personality. That's more doable than bieber or cyrus or turn t now. There's a lot of music going on in this house which could be interested at interests me a lot like house. One had bieber as you're only musical outlet and you're killing me and house number two lin-manuel and Miley yes. Now he could cool her up a bit so Next is billy Bush who I know nothing about cheese. Super talented seems cool but she might be a little moody now. I don't think so you don't think so. I'd in the bedroom. She pretty cool cat. Oh I do too. But she's young but like she's about her. All right you dig it. Yeah okay deal right so David Blaine Kanye West Billy Taylor Swift. I would take her in a heartbeat. I think she's kind of cool. I'm not a fan of her music but she seems like she's kind of got it together. I'm GonNa tell you something. Become a bit of a Taylor Swift Fan. Nothing to do music like she's kind of had this like she's growing up. She's grown up in the spotlight. I can't imagine she is impossibly under the microscope. All the time all the time and kind of like some of the fight. She's fighting for herself. I don't now I started to speak out on some things and I've given her some props for some of the public statements. She's made politically in well a lot of like her fighting for music like she's right. Her voice means people and becoming a woman I think with her own voice and I have no stake in this but like the artists rights thing and going up against some pretty powerful people in some pretty powerful peers. And I'm reading both sides too. 'cause I don't know enough about her to know if I trust her or not but I'm trusting her more the more I read about this and I I like where she's heading. I do person so this house and promised actually and then Oprah got to have over around like Oprah almost is all I would need because I think that would be such an interesting house wax slacks off. Conway push him links because he would even be like. Queen Oprah probably trying to overwhelm her. Oprah's skills shrike over which he where she was on. Carney yes by letting people at Konya run however so I feel like if I hung in Oprah's Lake General vicinity. Sure I could get away from. Teach me the skills to manage myself and you got a billion dollars thing. You need some songs you got Taylor swift kind of like you could talk about your products. You probably love him. David Blaine pop in and everyone and now out of hand. They're pulling a card from behind your ear inn. He levitated into the room building disappears. No that was the old stuff that was like What's his face Copperfield? David Blaine he used to do the great street magic which is best stuff in hell walking around like the streets of New York or Chicago and doing like people are now doing really good card tricks. Basically like street folks. Yeah I feel like this. House has a lot of problems. That could've done some stuff all right house number four. I do a lot of listening in this house. I feel like Yeah Oprah and house number. Three there's talkers. Billy is should she be quiet music now in music like there? There's a lot and you know I'm going to go and throw in. I'M GONNA assume that that people like Billy Irish can have her guitar and keyboard or Taylor. Swift can have hereditary She has his tracks right house number. Four those are the first three. We'll go back over all these Number one to me. This was a little bit of a I don't know thing which is are you yawning on the Dan Meghan markle. I have a I have a lot of interest in Meghan Markle. So she yeah. I'd like to see what makes her tick for sure. We're pretty heavy. Royals fans the big royals. Yeah and like. I'm very interested in this new dynamic like if I could like like if Meghan markle could be real with me. I have a lot of questions. Okay number two. I would not share it Mega Marco. I don't need to make those people that I'm sure she's listening. No but you would. You would be all over that shit number to someone I had to look up. I don't know who this is Demi Lovato. And then she has what is she is. She is a pop singer. Yeah okay the one who just had the big overdose. Oh Geez I hope not. I think she was really. She may be bipolar and have had the overdose one of them. One of the young. This is my people dot com knowledge. We'll probably send me I if it's who I think it was I might be. She's had a troubled past but she's trying to work threat. The the only thing about this house is it makes me wonder about like musician or other talents coming in. Like what are they? Offer a house so Meghan Markle Demi Levato number three Tina fey. I mean yes hardcore. Like one hundred percent number five. I'm sorry number four The cleanse Clini. Yeah really you know that sealed it for me. God I would. I would just be like three shoeshine. Mr Clooney can get another beer. Mister Kenny G. O. Clooney Mr Clinton well. Let's assume that you bring a lot of that has to be got us are we in Casa migos. Sure now you're at his place. I'm like Cuomo in Italy. Although that's bad no it's not actually I think better off than we are and then finally Dave Chapelle who I would be. This was my other house. I'll go and say two and four were my house but now that I'm looking I'm gonNA give my final verdict at the end for. This is a very strong mass for four is a huge hugely strong. I don't have any Tina fey Dave Chapelle together zero outright objection clooney bringing the Gravitas. Yeah I don't know anything about Demi Levato how bad could she to ruin the rest of God that's what she does? I don't really know a lot of runs. Yeah all right. How simmer five we got two more houses. We've got Jaylo. I love me some Jaylo unabashedly. Yeah Lebron would be all over that your hometown Guy Gordon Ramsay so down. Good food good food. But he's also always shutting shutdown. Hell's kitchen was done but he's a good guy. I think in real life. There have been a chef in this. That would be like. I'd like to eat well post malone who I don't know but he's a rapper post Malone. I think we're going to seal it for you on the on the last one for sure. So look. Post Malone Emily's typing. She's typing she's looking. Is He a white rapper? A white rapper with shit on his face. He's Guy Right not liking the looks of him. There's a lot of like weird shit going. Who knows nothing about the guy but you got? Jaylo you got Lebron you got Gordon. Ramsay Got Post Malone where he looks like a comedian with a bunch of Shit on rapper. Let's keep going and finally. This is a bit of a wild card for this house with Jennifer Lopez. Lebron Gordon Ramsay Post Malone Jennifer Aniston love. Jen Love Japan. I mean gin and I dated for a little while. Course Oh have you shared that not so much? It was short-lived but I would love to see her again. Guys should love to say friends with her in shock. Have not you know? Yeah she It was pretty devastating for I. I've Seen Journal entries so I'm not into this house. I love Jaylo. Lebron Alum Jin Gordon. Ramsay would be great postive alone. But there's there's something about a collective it doesn't feel like it works. I completely agree with you. It's weird this collective doesn't have enough. The Gordon Ramsay thing throws it into a different category. 'cause like I don't see he and Lebron and J. Lo like hanging out because it's an overall vibe thing too because there's dinners together Yeah Shark you know what I'm saying so you got to take it as a whole as well and I. I don't know about number five. That just doesn't jibe even be like a lot of those people but I I completely agree on the same house number six last house. You've Got Bay You know I love some Bay so you've got good music. She seems like a just really kind of great person to hang out with number two. You Have Ellen Generous Okay Funny Fun Hothouse Right now. Yeah Hothouse and a bet she would be a lot of fun at Jenner seeming like whenever that blue about being stuck together. You should be fine. Totally number three ladies. You get a little hunk walking through the door in Chris. Hemsworth and I'm down with that because Chris. Hemsworth is great in funny an awesome. I don't really know enough about having more than beefcake he's funny. He's funny shit as thor. 'cause you haven't seen some of that stuff right and was really funny in the Ghostbusters reboot with Kristen League and Melissa McCarthy saw that how did you see that without me? How do you think it's not talk about this? He was really really funny. He usually he tells and he did not tell me he saw this number four in this house. Is Emma Watson? Okay I like her. She's a bit serious but we both like her. She's the one from lingering right. Yeah the Harry Potter Laya. This is where it gets a little weird. Because you've Got Bay Got Ellen Hymns what seems like a lot of fun Emma Watson. He's the only man and then Brittany walks in the door. Spears is there any other right Bread that really throws a total wild card into this otherwise pretty cool house all right. So that's it so house number one Bieber feral Jenner Dr Phil indicating thousand percent. No for me as well no house. Number two reese lin-manuel Miley Quentin Tarantino. Chrissy Teigen now okay in there but now you really hate to miss race. But she's really the only one that you super love so it sort of okay. Yeah and you love her and I think MILEY CANCELS OUT RACE. Like two hundred percents house number three and I'm kind of rethinking things now. David Blaine Konya Billy. Irish Taylor SWIFT AND OPRAH K. That's heavy contender. But I forget you have to remind me of the four. I'm I'm leaning back in at three and never considered three but now I'm thinking of three musicians in the same house could get really interesting. And then you've got Oprah and you've got Blaine that's like here pulled a scarf pink scarf these five people. Someone can cook Oprah's probably had someone cooking for for a long time but a bet she could make a thing or two Pamela Adlon. Not In one of these. Well we'll just invite her to live with us all right house number four. I think I know your house. Megan Markle Demi Levato Tina fey George Clooney and Dave Chapelle two men three women including royal. She's barely a royal. But Oh why you want to start out your roommate ship like that renounced Her Royal Highness unless True House Number Five Jaylo Lebron Gordon Post Malone and Jen Aniston just a weird house and then finally beyond say Ellen Hemsworth Watson in Brittany Spears can know where you're headed between three and four. I was too and for whose too because Reese lin-manuel Miley whom I don't mind Chrissy Teigen Fun and she probably get drunk with me and Cutie Yeah it's it's funny and this is assuming Quentin Tarantino brings a pillowcase full of cocaine. Everybody wants to be stuck in the House with annoying people doing cocaine me. Here's the question are chuck. Emily GonNa live together. This is this is your own house. You can't bring pal well. No but we're picking if we picked the same we are well. I think in the end the House I'm going to have to go to is. There's no musicians in house for. Maybe I could be the musician. All right I'm going house for I can't I can't pass up Chapelle. Clooney Tina Fey. I can't pass that up. Oh no way too so. There were no musicians. That's so shitty. She had learned you some I could. I could leave and I could just kill the Star spangled banner like more than anyone else. All right all right. What do you think I think? It's down to three and four for you so historic in Blaine Konya Billy Irish Taylor. Swift and Oprah give me for again one man I'm sorry to men and Megan Markle Demi Levato Tina fey clooney. Chapelle SHIPMAN CAN. They live next door to each other and I just pop back and forth. Because we're all safe. Well let me if you WANNA cop out. I think I gotta go with Oprah all right. Yeah David Blaine Kanye West Billy Irish Taylor swift and Oprah. That's a pretty solid house I am there would bring it down a notch. He might have night three to Kinda Kinda wrangle them but I think he would take it down a notch and not be the worst. Blaine would be fun. Billy Taylor Swift is pretty cool. Oprah's the sage. GimMe Oregon do serious. You're going here. Megan markle author oils. Questions yeah baby could ask about a whole change my mind. I think I have to go four. Because here's what I have to contend with as myself in this quarantine all right fair enough what do I need? I don't need an intense conway a very young girl. That is a very good point. So like these people might entertain me for a minute but like who could. I hang out with and not need to manage some degree I think house for I think clooney is almost like having the Goddamn president pretty much clooney's GonNa keep at Clinic Goodwin. No matter what clearly doesn't freak out clearly doesn't have a bad time. Yeah Clooney like. He doesn't suffer fools he will keep it all on the web. So we'll Tina fey. I think even if Clooney had cove it he probably still be managing everybody and keeping them. You know what I mean like. I'm just GONNA isolate it's cool. You would have a mask. That is an exact replica of his face. Just like calming and he makes good to kill it for. I think I will join you. See Now we get to live together. Oh my God the David Chapelle would be so much fun. Day is a delight delight. We just have to work on. Demi Levato teach like players some Joni Mitchell and stuff in. Yeah maybe she. Maybe she's great if it's what I'm thinking of she dated. Who's the guy from that seventies show to progress? No Danny masterson know says yes that. Guy. What was his name. Yeah she dated says. Yeah like pretty seriously. Okay if it's the person he's like she had of Vilma Valderrama yeah she had a bad overdose he and he came and shut up for her helped her and yeah like she just like on the brink of death for awhile. Am I right about this? Gopher says go like he's a he's a super decent human being and she's young and hold on. I'm so sorry if now that's right. This is just a little. It may not be nearly yes. Yeah Yeah young person who has had some pretty substantial struggles and you know like she's dealing with her shit and I will just say any super young person in late. I can't imagine how they all don't have no absolutely ella in How Mad Demi Moore I just typed in Demi. Lovato came up before her. That is such a just slap in the face she's more newsworthy again. Because of overdose Smiley in Demi Levato. Yeah yeah she's of that crowd. Sure She's like twenty. Oh she seems fine. Bring her in. Let's do it. Let's do more on. I think she might be bipolar. Actually and it's a strong mental health advocate. It's great it's got behind absolutely anyone who's you know doing the work to not be stigmatized trying to live their best life. Yeah absolutely all right. I'll meet you for my dear. That'll be. I will never see you because I was a be following George Clooney around like a little puppy dog and I'll be like bowing at the feet of Tina Fey and yeah. I'll just be kinda working for them. Who has never won the asking again? I like so little recall. Zero Recall Meghan Markle. You've got your royal rally. I'll just be chatting with her. She needs some support right now. Girls had like a rough couple of years. Get all the questions. I don't really even have that many quo. Yes you do don't you. You're not going to ask a single question about the the Queen. Yeah well we know everything we need to know now. We're obsessed with her. I want to know in well. I see that a little bit because no one knows shit about them. They're very What if you're like what about Charles and choose which we all feel about Charles anyways? Yeah he's fine including including would laugh in poor enough another round of his Tequila shots and that would be awesome. Gio Clini all right. Well I say we keep it shortish in sweet baby. That is great house number four for both of us in house number three strong second place I think. Sorry for one should burn in the ocean. Medicating Save Yourself. I definitely think house number. One is the worst house by far bieber. Kylie Jenner. I mean Dr Phil fucking. I don't care if it was four. Great people in him. Yeah if I heard the boy coming through the house talking about how. We all need to stay together. I would murder him. Well that's an option if slitting his throat on the first night is an option that I I think that's L. Advan Justin Bieber. I'd be stuck with two dead Baden's Oh God so mean I know that whenever my head good because he's like dead case cancelled. Maybe we're GONNA have to sort that out all right. Well thank you my love. That was so much fun Maybe we should do some more of these just little one offs Cher. Thank you again to Joe Kimber for posting that Kimber.

"Thank you for listening to this. podcast one production available on Apple podcasts. And podcast one in Los Angeles whose bravery in the one and only famous Iraq says Perez. Hilton be hey guys. Welcome to the. PHP on Booker. That's Perez a big show. How you doing? Oh my God you know. I like to end the year strong and we are going out with a Bang Bang. Let me tell you not just today. I have a feeling our Thursday show. You know when you're done stuffing your face if you live in the United States listen into our Thursday podcast. I have too much to talk about today so much so that I'm saving some really good stuff for our second show. I will be talking about Justin Timberlake Lake. Of course we will be getting to the American music awards definite leave but first SIS my king show I need to uh-huh everybody know my new song is oh right. There's a reason never to listen to it but I'm I am so excited about it. The song I will not play right now. I WANNA save for Thursday. Booker has not heard it so I want to get his honest true. Who Initial reaction to my song will do that later in the week? But I'll tell you a little bit about it first of all. I've actually released legitimate songs before you're I was on a song with the Bengals Boys. Remember them We like to party relied departed. I wasn't a song that they did called rocket to. Uranus silly had fun. I did a I did a song with this guy named Larry t he he and I did a song together called my penis. I I did a song with. Dj Scribble Remember. Dj Scribble I do from MTV. Yeah exactly I did a song with him. That was a remake of money. Success Famed Glamour. I remember that song from the Party. Monsters Sean track. I've done a couple of Chris actually like three or four Christmas songs on compilation recordings with Broadway people. So you know. Oh I've I've released music that's available and I'm not taking this as a joke. The song's called Okay boomer. This is not something that I'm just putting up on Youtube to. This is a real release with a company that has helped me get this song everywhere so you guys can enjoy it or hate. Listen listen to it. Wherever you stream music I will be happy with either response if people either genuinely like it or love to hate it? I'm good I just want people listening sending to it and talking about it. I'm sure you've heard the expression. Okay boomer right never let me explain it to you. I really want to bet you that because I don't want people to think of it to go on a thing about it. I'm not I literally just going to mention it in context one of the things that many people started telling me when I joined tick talk. DOC was okay boomer. And it's basically a dismissive way for young people kids to shut up older folks. Yeah I'm forty one almost forty two. I get it like baby boomer. But you don't even have to be a baby boomer like literally anybody above the age of thirty basically is a boomer humor and there is so whatever I posted video that they did it like or if I left a comment on somebody else's tick tock or in any way if I did something that they did not approve of they would say okay boomer. So there's this catchphrase now obviously it's not gone supermassive. Because you didn't know about it but it's it's popular enough that you you you experienced it. People called you okay boomer. Yeah so the song is my response to those people like. Yeah maybe old but I still go boom every every day. Okay Bitch. I'm still Perez Hilton. I'm still fabulous and I love it because I came up with the concept. I Co wrote the song I worked with real songwriters songwriters and producers. In fact one of the guys worked with an A.. List superstar this year and I'm very proud of it and I'm having fun creating content to promote it and I hope that everybody listening at least check out booker. We'll check it out. Live on our show later this week and I will not talk anything else about my personal life even though other things are good because I wanna get to the good stuff. Do you have anything you want to share in sixty seconds or less happy birthday. Hey to my girlfriend. Oh Tamar oh happy birthday. How old is she thirty? Five three thirty three. That's around the time like. She's starting to think about kids if she wants to have kids. We start the show now. Yeah because you know there's an actual biological clock. We can start the show. Something think just happens when you turn thirty three thirty three thirty one hundred thirty two anymore. Bochy said there were a lot of stories we needed to get to the. I said I wasn't going to talk about my thyself thyself anymore. I didn't say I was thinking about. Nobody cares all right. Okay fire your product as a segue a segue to to getting to Justin Timberlake. I just want to address because some people I think are expecting me to. I had had you. It got into some controversy over our statements that we but mainly I made last week about Harry Styles wiles and I stand behind everything I said. I don't think I said anything incorrect. He doesn't have a lot of hits. His I ever song that was released sign of the Times. That song did chart well but it came and went it evaporated as soon as it debuted beauty on the billboard. Hot One hundred because It just didn't have legs. It wasn't a radio song. It wasn't a song that resonated with the masses his fans fans may have loved it and continue to love it. But all I was saying was it's wild that he's selling out arenas without hits it's and I doubt that that would be the case if he wasn't in one direction at his fans. I think this shows all about Our opinion They are this is not even think I know this is the fact his fans are I would say ninety the percents female most of whom fancy him most of whom think he's ridiculously good looking which he is and many of them imagine themselves dating him or sleeping with him or marrying him. Well the wrong one fans. That's all that but that that that kind of grip that kind of control that kind of allure over women is very powerful and let me tell you these fans are hard. Core Harry styles fans are almost host is hard core as like fans they came out pretty. Good Yeah I laughed it off. Well it got to the point now share a little of this just a little bit but it went beyond the fans it went to the business side of things where it got back to me. And let's just say I had to. Can you know. Provide some proof. You know what I'm saying so it. Yeah we got in trouble for that one but I you're dead I I didn't really I had to. The facts were being collected and I could have gotten in trouble but I didn't say anything. All I did was say that I hadn't heard the song the name sounds silly. It does watermelons schober. Look musically. I like the song I do. I think the lyrics are kind of silly but come at me. What do I I thank them? Though I love attention we know this positive or two. I told you that I liked it as well. I thought it was kind of funny because I didn't say anything and yet people were still coming at me too so whatever all right. Let's get to what many people want to hear from us about. And what I really. You really really want to talk about especially because you know what now that I did this. Actually the great thing that I put Harry the styles. I because had I not done that. I would not have had a lightbulb moment. Go off which is we're talking about Justin Timberlake. I'll give you a five-second context and then I'll really get into the second. Basically he was seen in New Orleans on a allegedly boozy night out holding hands underneath the table with a co star of his. Okay okay. That's the synopsis. I'll get more into it in a second. But what's fascinating is. Now that I put that after Harry and having seen the response by so many people on social media it makes more sense. I for sure thought that the overwhelming main majority of women were going to be very against what Justin Timberlake did and shockingly. I don't think I think that's the case I would say it's maybe evenly split with like fifty percents thinking it's bad fifty percent thinking it's not so bad and I think the reason why is because those fifty percent that think it's not so bad are probably women of a certain age who've loved Justin Timberlake Lake since he wasn't in sync just like Harry styles fans love him and I am seeing so many women on social media justify his behavior review and come up with all sorts of excuses and conspiracy theories like oh they were filming nowhere okay. They were not filming for the movie with that. That all went down. He was covertly caught by the Paparazzi. And I'll just backtrack now. Okay now give you the full context as we we know Justin Timberlake is married. Man He has been for many years to Jessica Biel they have a child together. What many of our listeners may not know and what you may not know booker is that Justin Timberlake has a reputation in Hollywood Hollywood? Well I did know that. Okay your look with you. Knew Ladies and gentlemen he has a reputation of being a cheater and and and getting heated. Already this is the reputation that has persisted into his marriage approach. I don't know if y'all remember but I can remember. I'm Perez Hilton Bitch. I think it was like two or three years ago. There were even rumors of him and a backup dancer. A backup dancer whom I should mother. SKIING AD looks a lot like his new film Co Star. Let's it's just say he has a type or basically he's just a Horny Guy Okay anyways. He's this new movie in New Orleans and going back to what I said like my brain is racing going back to what I said a second ago. I've even seen some Justin Timberlake fans coming up with conspiracy spiracy theories that it's all fake to promote this movie People that would make sense if we were getting soon and close to the film's film's Premiere. But they're currently filming it. It's not coming out for a long as time. This is not some stunt to promote the movie. That's coming out in twenty twenty or twenty twenty one all right so they're currently filming on a night out after they were done filming or maybe they were off that day he and a bunch of his colleagues. It wasn't a solo one on one date went to this bar. He was seen on video. Oh drinking I've analyzed watched poured over that footage. I don't WanNa say for sure 'cause I don't WanNa get sued but it. It seems to me in my expert analysis that he his appearance came across to me as being shit faced drunk later think like like what a revelation though but I don't I don't WanNa say he was because that would that that's a fact that we don't know for sure. I don't think anyone's going to sue you over that when I think he's hoping that more people say how should house he was. That's what he wants people. At this point I would imagine. Imagine a little pause in our story before we get back to it. I think you might get a chuckle out of this because this is so me I got so pissed hissed because one of my British sources told me about this but I thought it was gonNA break on Sunday and not Saturday and and Saturday as soon as I found out about it like I was literally heading out the door. It took my kids to a hockey game so I got the scoop and I sat on it because I wanted to do video because I wanted to be able to monetize my scoop thinking it was going to break on Sunday and not super late Saturday night. That doesn't happen by the way huge stories. Like this like that's based on photo or video. It's not somebody getting arrested. It won't break on a Saturday night like it'll break maybe Sunday morning or even Monday or Tuesday. Whatever so I came back and I saw had broken and I was a little deflated? Whatever ever I got my video up anyways and then somebody from New York tried calling me and I never answer my phone if I don't know the number and then I got a text message message? Justin Timberlake's publicist. Oh my I should read you verbatim. Let me read you verbatim exchange. Hi Hi is this Perez. This is blank from blank blank trying to reach you but not sure if this is the correct number me hi what's what's up can you call me about jt. They said tried to call you just now that I said don't really care to don't I don't really care to all right. Then they said really then I said but happy to include any statement you have really. The sinus is reporting us. Weekly is reporting. There are photos there was video. Don't know what spin you can possibly try. Seems like a call would be a waste of my time but very happy to to include any statement on the record or off. I always want to do everything by the law and I do the laws on my side here and the photos and evidence and reporting help. That didn't come across the wrong way. Just trying to be time efficient here. I'm with my kids and then they said okay got it. You know. We're jumping ahead all over the place and you barely even spoken. But I feel like there's just so much to say you haven't asked any questions yet. You haven't even asked for an opinion. You know what I think's going on but let's get to their. Everybody knows all this. We'll get to it so I don't WanNa say for sure but basically what. I'm pretty sure she was going to tell me is what ah or he. Whomever was probably told people that entertainment tonight by the same line was used and by the way? This is an instance where maybe his team Justin Timberlake's team should have taken a beat and waited till the morning to reach out to people because what they told old all these outlets literally the scene quote that I'm certain the publicist gave was that it's innocent. You can think whatever you want it. Okay I'm not even accusing him or staying cheating or anything but using the word. Ns sent to describe what happened dimmed. That's just dumb okay. It was many things but it was not innocent. If just for the pure fact of him getting way more for drunk than he should have it was not innocent. So I'll start to ask your opinion. Let me give you mine before you even say a damn word. I'm going to stay too bold statements. Okay and the first statement. His actions were very inappropriate disrespectful respectful to his wife and child and tied into that the woman's actions I think his co star early showing right. Were also inappropriate and the second thing is it was cheating. I'm not saying they've ever made out. I'm not saying they've however however emotional cheating too which I think holding hands inappropriately covertly having hands on on thighs and knees holding onto wastes all that touching it crosses the line breaks trusted. It's it is ah a kind of cheating. There are different kinds of cheating to me. That was that what do you think you said I think doc and that is your opinion guess to them it may not be there to actors. He's somewhat of an actor there to actors within into them. Do you mean to them like Timberlake Jessica deal or Timberlake and address all around all around. But LET'S GO TO JESSICA I. There's a kinship between gene actors on set and I Jessica Biel probably as aware of that ship. That's putting it mildly. Okay okay look I also looked at the film like it was the damage ziprecruiter myself. I saw a guy that was seemingly. I'll just say that because I don't know like you said I. I don't know if he was wrecked. I'm just assuming that he was the guy couldn't stand up. He was holding that damn doorway up. He wasn't into her. He's not into her. I never saw where. Oh he was leaning in my target by trying by. I don't see any moment where I even thought that there was a spark between between them. I think the girls a little too Hansie and he's Justin Timberlake and he probably is probably created some sort of openness because he is a kind of the big star. She's kind of a nobody so I think he's playing it cool but he was bomb now. They're the girl just touches leg that he just put his hand there for a second because he was bombed armed. Maybe I don't know I'M NOT GONNA call it cheating. There is some sort of a emotional thing that him and his wife May WanNa look into but I think it's maybe kind of normal for actors to behave that way now. They shouldn't be doing it all. I have to stop it. I was right now. I have to stop you there. Because that's just not an accurate assessment. That is not normal for married actors. It happens I'm not saying it's an anomaly. Hey what's not normal. The two people are sitting close together. He's not giving her any time of day. He's really not other than to live and rocking back and forth and holding up that Doorway Norway. He wasn't did the hand touches leg for a minute when she was leaning over. I can't tell I can't really tell that now where the hands are locked where they word see that I did see the photo hands were interlock. You can stop for anything for one second and say whatever I I have no idea what they were talking about. I have no idea what the scenario was. Everything's out of context. Because I wasn't there and he was out in the open. I don't think I think that he thought at any point that he was cheating. I don't I don't think that he thought it was a photo and video. I saw it all right. I think he's going to play with his his wife like look. I got way too drunk and I'm sorry I embarrassed. You certainly didn't have any intention on being with that girl and there's nothing in that video that says to me that there's anything else but there may be a little bit of an inappropriate relationship. They're not kissing. They're not canoed rolling. You can tell tell when someone's into a girl I just didn't see guy that's into a girl I didn't. I saw a guy that was wrecked. That's what I was like. I said three or four or five minutes ago. He's into any any walking female that well. That is your opinion of him. That's that's okay. That's your opinion opinion opinion. I don't know him well enough to say that fine. Let me though just to be accurate. Try and rephrase rephrase or surmise. Two things you said okay. Would you say it's fair that you think a Justin Timberlake owes his wife an apology. Absolutely okay and be. Would you say that that what happened was not innocent or they use a different word. Would you say what happened was appropriate. I don't know their relationship friendship there. I don't know where they are as friends and actors as people that hang out together. I don't know I can't answer that question without more or context from them. I should remind everybody. If you didn't pour over the photos and videos like I did. He was not wearing his wedding ring. Just saying some people pull. Don't maybe we're we. We shouldn't even read into that but that was just. He's on the set. He was not onset. Say They shot that day and they went straight from the thing. That could have been the hotel room. If you're shooting a movie you're not GonNa have your wedding ring on. It's probably going to be in a box in your hotel room. Maybe they came right from the set and started drinking. That's my guess what's also interesting is seeing so many women saying well. He was my husband. He can do whatever he wanted. I actually saw that and a lot. Does that surprise as you know. No I'm going to predict. Were like flashing forward to December predictions. Show guy odd gonNA predict nothing. Nothing will come of this meaning. JESSICA BILL IS NOT GONNA make a big to do of it. She won't leave him over this even if he cheated on her sexually which we don't know we don't know that I also predict timberlake. We'll address at all. He'll probably appear on Ellen. His good friends show and make jokes and laughs and it's a safe space for him. There in. This is why I love you by the way I should also remind everybody. If you're not aware of his age he's thirty the eight years old. Do you get do you. WHO LOVES TO DRINK BOOKER? do you allow yourself or do you accidentally ever get at your advanced age as drunk as Justin timberlake seemingly got. No no I think of maybe a couple of times but I'm I'm not a when I'm drunk. Most people don't even know I'm drunk. I'm just loud. That's all that I am. I'm not a I'm not a passer outer guy. Looked like he was going down. You know what I mean like. He looked like like he was circling the drain. I don't get that way now and it was wild to. Maybe he's got some issues like maybe he does this to regularly now. I'm not saying I'm not saying he does. I'm actually kind of agree with you. Oh it's not issues it's fame. He's been famous since he was a child. Hi Old and there's an entitlement that comes to that and there's this nonstop need for attention. I believe that he has to get. And there's I think a little of that plays plays into it. Sure I don't think it's out of the question to bring that up but looking at that video of everybody else like how awkward and uncomfortable like everybody was like trying not to stare at him but they were staring at him and they were like that was funny. Because I was I was looking at the other. Oh yeah watching him like somebody should to step in and say we're trying to that other woman was trying to everybody was trying. The Guy was like Patti him on the back and everything like people were like. They're his colleagues so they also have to be careful of what they say especially when dealing with allistair when they're drunk and you could say could trigger them so like you saw a lot of them also like padding this is also just goes to show you like how you should handle them the guy patting him on the back to me that's appropriate appropriate touching the girl holding his hand touching his thigh and me under the table. That's not appropriate touchy well. She didn't look as house does he. Did he looked to be out of it. And I don't know what was going through his mind. I just think that he was wrecked. He's probably embarrassed. Alcohol is not an excuse. That's nine I know but I'm not giving them an excuse. I'm saying that he should have the next day. Got Out in front of this himself. Not as publicist. Even if he went on instagram and said look. This is what happened last night. He probably knows there were photos and video. That's the thing. Well of course he had no idea. I'm just saying when the story story broke this story when the story broke. He should've been on Allen this morning. You know what I'm saying. Like he should have flown back and said I have to do damage control here because I love my wife and I love my a kid and I love my career because I think this movie this is a really really bad. Look this is Leeann. rhymes got with her husband. I don't know what the movie was. Does anybody anybody know what the movie was the lifetime movie. Nobody cared whatever. Same thing. There's gotta be a level of professionalism with your co Star specially nationally out in public that you need to adhere to. I would think right or would anybody even if you're with your bros.. I would be so constantly questioning. You have to be careful. I would have someone on guard and he had security and it looks like he had people around him but they should have taken better care or said to her. Hey back off. Someone should have said that the hurt and Oh. That's a good point. I'm not I'm not making an excuse for him. I'm just saying that in this situation back. It was probably the fact that he wasn't wasn't his regular security. GonNa Guess just totally a guess like he was probably with people that the film crew hired like. When he's on tour he's got his just like tight crew that knows what to do if he gets too? Sloppy tours securities probably different than film security. But if I'm Jessica Biel like I said had an I predicted. I'm going to stay with him but I'm going to have another private detective following him around all the time. I don't think he's ever GonNa leave her site again if she's serious about the relationship which she seems to be. I don't think he's ever getting out there alone again because all trust is now flushed and they seemingly were happy together. I mean they were just in Paris Paris fashion week a few weeks or a month or so ago now a fleeting moment. I wouldn't look too much into into it. I think it's embarrassing. I think he should deal with it but I don't think it's anything. It should also be noted though that according to reports Jessica deal was aware of this reputation that Justin Timberlake had and granted. We don't know for sure. But reports this claim that there is an infidelity clause in their pre-nup. Wow cool so like she gets more money if they break up and it's because his cheating I don't know this has been great.

THAT'S JENNA SELL DOT COM Jenna Sal L. dot com American music awards. You go to bed real early now did you watch. I watch these coast feed so I saw. How the hell did he watch the East Coast? Fade I use my friends sling box. I have a sling box as well so I used his cable box to my house. I wish I could have watched the east coast feed guy. I was up till eleven seven PM. I could have watched some crappy feed on the Internet. But because I knew that we were going to talk about it in depth on the PODCASTS US I kind of wanted to watch it on. TV and pay attention and watch it. Well so I took down notes lessons. Go who cares about the awards right. Nobody nobody let's just talk performances. Selena Gomez opened the show and she did two songs I love. Selena Gomez as a person. I love these two new songs. She sounded compared to everybody else. Who Sang Vocally? She was the weakest vocal. However you know listen I like to be positive and I applaud her for at least for the first song the second son not so much for the first song lose you to love me? She sang that live. And I think without auto tune for the most part without audited for certain yes. Yeah I was surprised. She didn't use auto tune because a lot of artists. Do US live auto tune now singing. So I gotta give it credit well in a lot of track back to there was a lot of track on that show and he didn't use very much and she should have so I give her credit for that. I sort of agree with you. I think should maybe should how route but she looked good and she seemed confident and honestly as a fan. I was just happy to see her and have her experience. That opened the show and be done with it and not be defeated because the last time we saw Selena Gomez on the American music awards. She performed that Song Woods Awards and she looked so broken and hurt and just unhappy and miserable and it was. I don't think it was a positive experience for her. Nor for me as a viewer so at least I think and hope that this was a positive experience for her even if maybe she didn't sound that great but you know what Hello Selena Gomez. We don't expect great vocals former from her after that was Sierra. who also hosted the show? I thought she did a great job hosting after. That was Liz. Oh who surprised me. He by doing a song that was without big production. It was the the polar opposite of what she did on the MTV video. Amusing awards where it was a bunch of dancers and that big old by and even though she didn't have production fucking loved it. It was amazing like I knew she could sing as well as rap but I did not know she could thing that power house vocals I would say mhm. She's just a star after Lissouba was Thomas. Rhett whom I think is adorable and I like his music in offensive. Kinda like Sam Hunt. They're like birds of a feather. His performance was very by the books. Nothing bad nothing exceptional about it but sounded good sang alive. I'll buy that after. That was shot and Gumilla and at this point I'm just pissed. Okay unless unless they know and they've already gotten the offer to perform this song at the grammys which I think they should because it's one of the biggest songs of two thousand nineteen and maybe they're saving the kiss for the grammys but if these two I perform at the grammys and if they don't give me a kiss on camera I am understanding. Both of them had over then they need to give at least one performance or they kiss and not that stupid ass knows ought to calm down. That knows it does though is so oh annoying at this point. I don't WanNa see you with this note with your nose Thomas Rhett. They were both really good. They were both trying. They both sounded amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed the performance after that was cash shut and I love her new song raising hell. I loved her performance. She also really looked looked. Great looked healthy. I like the Brunette hair but I'm not applying it to unhealthy before basically. It seems to me that she's that she's gotten fitter work. Is it a bad thing. Is that a bad thing to observe. Oh she's gotten fitter since. When do you care anyways? She looks she looks fitter than before and I love the new song and other performance and I love it. She also did a little bit of tick tock to it was great. I love it. I'm proud of her good for her after that was toni. Braxton axh-`Ted which I'm GonNa make prediction. I'm actually surprised it hasn't happened already. Why I'm all of why cursing so much today? You're like at five hundred F. Bombs you got. I don't know what's going on. I don't know why Toni Braxton was performing because she doesn't have anything to promote which is why it doesn't take a genius to make this prediction. I think I guess I wouldn't be surprised in a vegas residency. Announcement comes from Toni. Braxton sometime this week or next week that would explain why she performed at the American music awards and Frankly Klay Amazing. She sounded so good which is nice. You expect a great singer to sound good but sometimes artists that that are twenty thirty years into their career. Their voice isn't there. Maybe they drank too much. They did too many drugs. They didn't take care of their instrument but she still sounds amazing and I had locked. Sim okayed looked amazing. I love that performance of I'm breaking my heart. Good on you toni. Braxton agreed wholeheartedly after that was billy Bush at actually I think well maybe because I know but other people don't know billy I don't know if you know this but she's a trained anes dancer she she's yet to do a performance where she really incorporates. That part of her pass like I'm not saying I disliked to perform. Actually I'm just going to get to. I loved billy eyelashes performance. And I know that she's capable of other sides of her artistry. I don't know if maybe she thinks thinks that doing a dancing uncall- lame whatever it may be but I think eventually we'll get that from her. I'm not mad that we haven't gotten it yet. I loved the billy performance. Four minutes I loved the scale of it was big. You know they even like lifted her up the honest. Lift thingy contraption my favorite thing about the billy early Irish performance. I would stay with the last thirty seconds which she was just staring into the camera. That was cool in the crane was taken her up. That was cool. Like Eliza like she's a star Star to and it was a star performance and I loved it. She's a beautiful kit. Yeah and she does a Lotta. She's got the green hair and it's up ponytails and she got the big clothes on. I don't think she wants to be judged for beauty but she is a beautiful girl. She's really pretty in person. It's pretty wild and also this is just speculation people. I'm all over the place today. We're withing I'm giving okay while I'm about to go there. Another is the bad thing. It's natural it happens. I think I've seen she's seventeen. Okay now I I'm gay man by the way also. I don't want to have sex with her. She's he's got boobs. which is one of the reasons may be why she's covering the M- up? And maybe who knows the Mustang she should or has to but she might want to get her she. Maybe you still got reduction the future who knows but that could be one of the many reasons why she does. where the baggy clothes? Yeah I think she's spoke on this before I think it's it's just she doesn't want to be sexualize because she is has the understanding that she has a kid and she's underage and I just think that she's uncomfortable hearing things like that and so well Brittany Spears had no issue with that. Well ready spears belly. She's not after billy was. You may not remember the order of the performance but after Billy Islas came my favorite performance of the night Halsey Halsey Holy. I was gonNA catch cursing today. What do all of these out? I'm just bleeping them. Because you're out of could I. Oh I don't know what's wrong with me. Sorry this is very unlike me I think. Just the tip relate just triggered something and I can't recover a did I. Traumatized holds the gave the performance of the night. There is nobody that was better. It was so inventive. She was a hundred and ten percent live sounded phenomenal. Gave US dancing. Davis artistry part of Me a judge's halls e by the company that she has kept by the things that she's done and maybe accurate or knob in the past. She's he's had a bit of a party girl image to her and partying images well but what I love about that performance is you could tell the like the weeks weeks. Not even just days. The weeks of rehearsal that took that was choreographed and learned and studied studied and analyzed and perfected and it went off flawlessly. I could have loved it and been more proud of it for her. Her there was nobody better. Not even there's nobody even came close it was exceptional out of everyone. That was there that night. And I'm talking to the Christina Gilera's the Taylor Swift's I think Halsey in her being has more talent than anybody there. Her artistry is beyond and it's just next level she can sing she can draw. She's a chameleon every time she does something it's different she really is a special actual talent. I enjoy everything she does. I mean I wouldn't go so far as to say that. I also think Lizardo and billy Taylor very talented too. I didn't say they they weren't telling you said she's more talented I did. Yeah I don't know if I would agree with that I would say she's just as talented those people after that was Green Day Day. And you know what I had not heard that new green day song before but I thoroughly enjoyed it and basket case one of the best songs of all time like I. I could hear that on a loop for hours so they rocked if they were awesome after that was comey like who performed a new song. I cannot for the life of me remember the name of the song. I didn't jot it down. Well the Summers Manila but I actually loved her performance. I thought she sounded great. I thought she looked amazing. I loved the production. I love that. She had guy dancers dressed in a feminine way. The performance was great. I just wish the the song was better in the song was ahead. It just goes back to what we set a couple last week or the week before they. She's releasing an album with very little heat and with songs that haven't event connected with people in a major way and it's unfortunate because she's so talented and kills it live after that was the Jonas Jonas brothers who were live allegedly via satellite they did. They did a remote from their concert in Boston. You know they're kind of like Thomas Rhett nothing bad. Actually you know what it was a little bit. It was it was better than Thomas Rhett. It was fun because they were also elementary. was there show with their fans. It was totally fun. Actually I love that. I heard I've been listening to your radio show in the morning and Oh yeah you guys played their new single a lot so I love that. Their new song has or is catching on radio. Only humid which was great. 'cause you know after the successive sucker. They released another song which it didn't even have a chance to thrive because sucker was such a huge hit. That song cool came and went but only human I think is is on track or may already be bigger than cool was oh much picker yes cool. I do not believe was a single. They released it at the same time is soccer. But they didn't want it to be the single. They just wanted to give the fans more than one thing. Everyone's doing that. I don't really like it that much but I don't think it was supposed to be. I see okay well. They were great after. That was Taylor. Swift God bless her. I love her she is an angel she is is she is Taylor Swift. And that's what I love about her like. She doesn't try to be any other artists when she performs and everything everything that she did is everything. That Taylor swift does so well there was a little bit of storytelling to her performance medley. She was awarded artists of the decade. There was dancing as Taylor Swift Kellyanne which she's done more and more of the last few years the beginning of her career she didn't know oh dancing because that was not her forte but she's grown immature to become more confident in that there were lives thinking. Yeah there was some track. I wasn't too bothered by it but but honestly it was like ten minutes or something. The most special thing Taylor Swift did during her performance was her new single the last song lover the arrangement they did a new arrangement of lover that was exquisite. Treat pain or Hermanas. Who Ever heard anybody? Anybody affiliated with Taylor Swift please I beg of you. The Arrangements Smith they did was so different than the original version and exquisite was so damn good I need that up on streaming platforms arms. I want to hear that version as well. And she had misty Copeland and another dancer dancing to it. It was beautiful gorgeous exquisite. I could could not have loved it more. Yeah good performance. I thought there's really nothing negative that you could say about it. Yeah she's just Taylor Swift. She does Taylor swift very well and she did a very good performance. We've seen you and I have seen her do a couple of live. I think one four baby Amazon or something and maybe another one I iheart. They weren't that good vocally but last night she was really good like she showed up to sing. And yes there was a ton of track. I wouldn't say a little track. There was a ton of track last night but she still hit all of the places that she hadn't hit prior to this run and I thought she was great lights out performance. Well done after. That was a great big world Christina. Aguilera you know. They're trying to repeat history and have success again by teaming up again but the song is just okay. Not a bad song. It's just not a smash in my opinion after Christina and a great big world was post Malone hear me out on in this people okay I think and I can acknowledge an I. I'm part of his crew. I am post Malone Fan I I would even go so far as to say and correct me if you think this assessment is wrong I think post Malone is beloved people have a not just like him. They are rooting for him. They have a real affinity for him. Would you say that you're one hundred percent. Okay and I am those people as well having said that the amount of auto tune that he used. I mean it was almost like lip thinking it wasn't lip synching but like auto tune was that a hundred But that much auto tune I could sound great to having said that that once I just accepted that was the choice that he was making because maybe he can't sing that well live. I got into it and I liked the performance orbits and Ozzy Travis. Scott like had his auto tune. It's seventy post. One hundred and Ozzy was at zero and kind of was just just as good as Christina. Aguilera I mean that guy can still sing God damn face off. It's unbelievable that's Ozzy Osbourne from black sabbath and his voice sounds exactly exactly the same still all of those drugs. All of the rehabs all of the smoking all of the ant snorting everything that he's done his vocals Are Still Amazing. It just blows me away. He was great. Did you like the post performance loved it. I am so in fraud by him. I love just watching and what he does because I think he's so special that he just doesn't care you know he's like I'm me. This is what I do. It's cool man. He seems to love. Everybody just seems like a lover you know like a fun drunk does what he said I want. I don't want to drink with him. You know he just seems fun he also seems drunk all the time I by the way he probably is drunk but whatever he just seems like a party to me. Yeah after that was do I leap at love. Her love the performance. I love the song. Love everything about it. I was a little bummed. They put her towards the end. I think they should have like a bay on that spot. Because COMMUNICA performed org three times I have heard that Selena was supposed to be up there with Taylor and I think Camille of filled in. Oh Yeah I heard that too. Actually why have Camilo on Stage three separate times come on something happened. Something went down and I'm buying that rumor. She's probably they were just too nervous or whatever. Yeah finally Shania Twain closed out the night and I love her first minute and a half. I was watching very confused right where we going here. Yeah her and the bedazzled Pink Guitar doing doing covers of other artists songs and it was supposed to be promoting her new vegas residency. It almost had the opposite effect like is is that what you can do to Vegas. Vegas was in the I. Don't WanNa Watch that. Yeah she turned it around though. Thank God you turned it around and then gave a great performance to close at the night and we have so much more show laughed. We'll just do it on Thursday. Okay all right. Let's take some calls for Landau Flipping burgers hooker talk about how away. There's always a line out the door for to play and you know it's not that the victim. La Everywhere I live in Orlando and not even the part by the carton thought in there is all a line triple rock around the building. Every time I go in I won't waiting in line forever and ever and it'd be guy fell it. Did you go yet. What's the thing that people get the most? What are they love the most? I just get the chick-fil-a sandwich in which it's just a chicken sandwich with the pickle on it and So people get it with lettuce tomatoes. But I don't recommend that and then you gotta get the fries. And then they're like six different sauces assist to choose from so get a couple of those cool people love those here. We go booker series from northern Virginia. I'm who question but it's more of a comment I just wanted to say that I I just wanted to point out that I really like how I'm feeling over time. You guys have growing engagement a lot and I've noticed that with the phone calls I know I I. Don't you support women going win there. Anybody going anybody but I also think it's so just hilarious when callers is going Other callers because it's just absolutely ridiculous but yeah I just think it's really funny and that everybody also knows that poker cooker doesn't like rambling. Which is what I'm doing now? Yes you are. Jesus Christ thank you but thank you for the calls this week. This is Jackie from Ogden. Utah I just listened to Europe. So today's you guys mentioned the real housewives of Salt Lake City and from Utah Nine. Where I'm pretty excited and a lot of my friends are excited to? I just wanted to tell you guys hopefully don't ramble. Don't hang up on me but lake city is not a dry vice city. There are people who are not. LVS Who do drink. Actually it's more The majority of the People in Utah. It's Kinda some people people in Utah are LVS but the numbers are starting to change up a little bit. So there's more people who are non Elia but people are excited about poly city. Because we'RE NOT DOC DR. We do like to Party and have fun on so they drink all right all right.

Who Cares About the Rock Hall?: Quarantine Playlist - Class of 2018

"Everybody welcome but who cares about the rock? Call a podcast about the rock and Roll Hall of fame. I'm your host joke was all. I know entirely too much about the rocker hall of fame someone. Who's a little more skeptical of the institution? Who is I wanna say with me as always but sadly you've been listening to the past few weeks she is with me via zoom video chat. It's kristen stuttered. That's more I'm with you in your heart as always yes as always whether I came me in there all day long special compartment by the way where. We're kristen spirits. It's it's what they say when they say you have a special place in my heart. I truly have one. In Joe's you have real estate. Yeah I got prime real estate on by a order. So this is our third quarantine episode. Come up with a good term for that. No no good way to combine the word quarantine episode. No and. I certainly don't want you to try to riff one out now. I'm not going to I want you to know mentally. I am but out loud. No no I have learned so we have been doing playlists. We have been focusing on each year of the Rock Hall. We did twenty twenty and then two thousand nineteen. We've been doing one song per artists to make a quarantine FEM- d- playlist all good years. And then here we come twenty one eighteen. Which is the first year where you were paying attention. The ceremony happened to occur. Just a few weeks into US. Starting this podcast. Yeah it and you were. I remember you saying something about like how we were starting the PODCASTS. At a weird time because the show was about to come out at Artie happened in And now I super know what that means and I hate that. I have that knowledge but I do right and this was I was thinking about it. I feel like you watching this particular ceremony with this particular class before you really knew anything about the rock call really soured you on the idea for at A lasting damage for took it took until we went to the ceremony. For Kinda pull you out of it. Yeah I think the newer on the twenty nine hundred class was good for me. As far as I was more excited to see those people perform too so that was like one step out of the grave and then the other one happened when we went to the ceremony. But the watching this alone a month into the to this whole endeavor or like however many months into this. It was very very early and I. I watched it into sittings. I couldn't believe that it was still happening at one point halfway through right accident when I was like there's still an hour left and a half hour of it is bond job. What is I'm still mad about it? I actually angry will. Let's go through this list of Aucoin. Let me see if I can remember who was in the twenty eighteen class. I know was bon. Jovi and I know is the Goddamn Moody Blues the cars Ethnically Dire Straits. Nina Simone. Good and oh Rosetta tharp sister. Rosanne therapy there. You're good anybody else. So let's get let's go ahead and start with the two thousand eighteen playlist. It's it's a bizarre time and it feels like there's something new and weird every single day as we watch and see what happens in here from whether it's the CDC or it's the administration or us or it's wherever you're getting it so why don't we start this whole playlist off with the song from sister. Rosetta tharp called strange things. Happening every day Pau Track people say anyway austrade thing on that last judgement thing when they're dry. Think the loved you. You must know nine right all right all along the whole night training duct tape nine man side with odious task. That was strange. Things happening every day from sister Rosetta. Tharp Kristen I'm curious. When do you think that song is from? Oh ooh I have no idea. I'm going to sound so stupid. Take a guess so it was a hit single in nineteen forty five okay. Great can take forty five and like a lot of sister. Rosetta 's stuff it was pretty foundational in kind of establishing the idea of rock and roll what was particularly influential and important about this record is it was the first. Gospel record to cross over into the rate what was called a race record chart which evolved into the R. and B. Charts. But I'm sorry. The what the race records race records recalled. The chart was called in. The genre was called race records for black music. Wow Yeah we've talked a little bit before about how specification is kind of entrenched in racism. But yeah they used to be called race records and it went to number two on the race chart in April nineteen forty five just like the concept to that. Anything that isn't white is race. Saturday mean is so backwards. And you know white supremacists like is nineteen. Forty five is wild race chart the race chart and that is a Also that song is a traditional Along as I was going to say the thing the subject Matter Certainly Gospel very much about getting right with the Lord and so that was one of the first crossover hits. Is that what you're saying from Gospel Gospel to you know race records which in in other words into Oh onto the more popular music chart but still the black popular music chart correct and that combination of those forms of music is kind of the stew that created rock and roll. Yeah and that's A. That's a fun song. I liked it. I thought it was fun. Is Short Jaunty Fun? Little Song. And it's gotTa you know. Scott good beaten you can BOP to it adds guy liked to and also. I just think she is so. It's so cool. All the footage of her. That was one of my favorite parts about this ceremony was the sister. Rosetta tribute performance. Because that was Brittany Howard taught Alabama shakes and. She was so great and choice. Hack edge exactly absolutely perfect. It was one of the best parts of the ceremony of a notoriously lackluster ceremony. That was a big bright spot. Yeah because not only was it well done but also it was educational for this figure who is so cool in so pivotal. That is under scene and not talked about as much as she could while. And that's one of your big. You know this was the foundation. Argument of this podcast. People that there's value because we're learning about the history. There are times when people who truly deserve to be Spotlit. Get Hot light absolutely. Here's the other thing I was thinking about this. When you started this song I was like. Oh you know the class in and of itself isn't so bad like I don't despise it. I just really didn't like the ceremony at all. I might actually enjoy some of the songs you know. I liked dire straits. Yeah but I and we know that they did not show up perform you know and I like the cars and I I do not like Bon Jovi and I also do not love the. Ludi balloons famously. But I think too that that ceremony really. It poisoned the well on a lot of. Yeah sure maybe this episode will kind of bring you back? Who's to say so happening every day? And also now we are isolated right. We are social distancing. We are like who's GonNa drive you home so we are not together. So why don't we listen to song by dire straits called so far away? Now where are you saw? It live just seem. Oh taking out there sofa I have to lay me is so far as I can see. Fuck Bye That was so far away from the dire straits that's off of their fifth album which is brothers in arms from nineteen eighty five which was a gigantic that releasing head huge huge album and this was their first single off of that albumin. It went to number nineteen on the charts. It's a bit of a slug pretty repetitive. I like it enough but it doesn't really doesn't feel like it really gets going. It's very monotone certainly doesn't show and there's not a lot of songs in their catalogue that showcase mark knopfler vocal skills But this is almost like they're trying to hide something and like just absolute no symbolism just like you are so far away from me. It's very hard to explain things to you because you're so far away for me. I cannot kiss you because you're so far away from me again. It's just like Oh and I. I mean it's fine. I remember this song but wow I don't remember it being that. This is a very soothing. Young right now out of what I like it. I think what may be compounded. That was had a very uninteresting. Music video out and a mind-numbingly boring music video which is funny because their next release their next money for nothing money for nothing which is like one of the most innovative music videos of all time. I know truly change the game. Yes in their music video for so far away is just clearly them in an empty venue just playing kind of like the very first music videos you'd see on MTV. Which is. I'm just playing on a stage at terrify with occasionally a blue tinted cry line is overhead shot of city mind-numbing so it was like in conjunction with that song. I get really bored. Me WATCHING IT. And they're not even really performing at all they're in clearly just messing around. You do seem not flare. He's goofing around news. Having a good time to get to see him smile a lot. He's weird looking rockstar. And that's wild that he was so famous. And you get some. Get some shots from without the headband. And you realize that had been does a lot of work. Normalize is and that's the lead off track of this album. Yeah crazy I'm like damn if you lead off your our with money for nothing. People are like this band. Kicks you start with so far away. It's like well it's almost like a prelude to real I track. Yeah and then. You've got what walk of life another pretty this. It feel great loaded this album so we've got so far away from dire straits and kind of continuing that theme of distance of not being with people. Why don't we listen to a song called since you're gone by the cars syrup took since he says pill that was since you're gone from the cars that was off of their fourth album shake it up and it was released as a single went to number forty one on the hot one hundred. I mean I definitely know that Song Did they did? They did it to stay in rotation on like open format station. Yeah it's a minor hit for them. You know so I think it would. You wouldn't obviously hear it as much as you would hear. Shake it up from the same album but it's you know POPs up every once in a while. I think it's a good song. I think it's a fun track. It's a fun track. That was a fun music video once again. Got a weird looking leading man notoriously strange looking. Rick Okay Sick I. There was a great bit in the video where she's asleep in. He lifts the cover off to you. Know I don't know say hello to her and she's in. She has been replaced by a guitar. The heck that is a cool move. There were some very cool very eighties camera tricks going on in this music. Some stop motion also very much kind of slog like these kind of like mid tempo. You know what I mean not as much. That tempo of song is not really happened in much anymore. That was very of its time. Maybe I don't know I. I think it's probably maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I just don't listen to visit like that anymore. Yeah you Kinda get. Why if you listen to this versus like shake it up. You know which one's going to be the big hit but it's got some like a lot of car songs. Got Some Fun instrumentation. It's got some poppy. New wavy stuff in it that I think is fun. Yeah and I like how it starts very cute. Did they. Performed live on the ceremony. Ah did it was not good. They're not a great live band. I thought I remembered that. And you know what turns out I did all right so we've got since you're gone so far away. Strange things happening every day. You know something else that it feels like we're doing every day we're in we're in quarantine is were looking for new information or wondering when we can get out of this and there's not a lot we can do. We're kind of passive in all this we are. We are slippery when wet not quite. Why don't we listen to a song by the Moody Blues Called Watching and Waiting Four were soon this You Wrong know ah AH Johnson for someone to a that was watching and waiting from the Moody Blues. That was off of their fifth album. Nineteen sixty nine. To our children's Children's children was released as a single. It was the only single released from the album and was a huge bomb and song or the album bowl song album actually did fine but they were hoping that the single would do well kind of the way that nights white satin did. I see bad I get it. That did not do much for me. Personally I was like maybe if it was the sixties and I was on drugs or something laying in a meadow. That's the intention. Is that this type of music was not really happening that much. So it's meant to be down psychedelic and different and in the tradition of nights in White Satin. They complained that the album general was mastered very very soft so on the radio it just kind of disappeared disorder. I Dunno it was fine. That's not my vibe right. And it's really pushing five piece like it is meant. Yeah with. Here's the other thing okay. Men Big question though. Let's say am in the meadow in the sixties. I'm on drugs right. So I'm in a meadow in the sixty S. I'm on drugs. There's no record player. There can't be playing music in the meadow. While you're on drugs you maybe. Someone brings their harp and does their rendition in the medal. I think that's probably why they released as a single you could get it on your transistor radio or whatever. They were hoping that it would be played on the radio. Because you couldn't get music on demand play whatever song you wanted in the wild right. What was the mobile option? Option would be like radio but radio. But you don't get to choose on radio. I mean like a way that you could have a song besides a record player that you could play it somewhere in sixty nine or down. That's just not what was happening. You know this album interesting. Little fact was one of those. Listen to on cassette tape when Apollo fifteen launched in Nineteen seventy-one. Bad for you gotTa do to that Song. Something huge. It's to mellow. You need to feel incredibly mellowed about a thing. Like if you're like shit we're going into space. Let's put some Moody Blues Antidote to going to space. The opposite of going to space is listening to that Song. There you have it. We cracked it laid it. They played it as they were blasting off. They were like okay everybody down. It was just one of a albums that the crew had on deck. You know that album the whole thing to our children's Children's children correct. Wow okay. Hey listen they went to space? They can take what they need. That's fine by choice but let them. It's nine hundred. Seventy one for Apollo fifteen. So let them do their thing to bring whatever they want. Okay Fine Apollo go ahead go ahead. Apollo to do your thing if I were in space looking down at the cosmos like looking down at the earth and Pale blue dot. You know I think I would feel the infinity in that song. Maybe more than I do in my current state. Yeah I think watching waiting is actually a great song to listen to while you're in space 'cause you're probably are watching and waiting. Anyone is listening in space right now. We're glad to have provided that song for you to listen to to really give it the atmosphere that deserves on intended hundred percent intended. Okay so we're at a point now with all this isolation you can almost kind of forget what it's like to be able to do what you want or to be wanted dead or alive. So why don't we listen to one of my favorite songs from Nina Simone? I wish I knew how aged is one of my favorite songs And we do brood feed to be free. We could pray all the chains. We could say oh fangs and as you say. Sam Loud Route Sam clean the whole round. He could share all the help. Remove that key acid issue could no to be. Then you'd see and agree. Every man should be free. I wish good all good. I'm no shot do way I'd be I to the sound. Oh being no say that really saying hey nope we use that was. I wish I knew how it would feel to be free from Nina Simone. That was off her thirteenth studio album. Silk in Seoul in nineteen sixty seven a great song one of my again one of my all time favorites regardless of classification. Not just this year not just rock hall. That song is really really something. It's a very special special special song you know when I watched the documentary. What happened Missa? Mon is when I think I I heard that song. It think it's in the credits and I was like what is this and I went down a rabbit hole beginning with a song but I love that. Song I listened to. It often is a beautiful beautiful song and it's very very Nina. Absolutely the original version It was a jazz song written by Billy Taylor and Dick Dallas. In Taylor's aversion was from one thousand nine hundred sixty three but obviously the the Simone version is the definitive ever released that as was that like did it chart or anything. It was released as a single but it did not chart in any on the race chart or whatever race records a race. Long gone by this point is so important and I didn't know how important she was until I saw that documentary and I mean you know obviously very flawed so many you know people everyone is so so important so politically impactful interesting to see someone be radical in the public eye truly radical. Yeah to her own detriment. Yeah I mean at least career. Wise wise is awesome. I'm glad we got to listen to it. It almost makes up for the fact that next. We're GONNA have to your song by Bon Jovi. We have we only one life and you know. Bon Jovi has plenty of songs about being lonely or whatever you know. They write a lot of love songs and I thought about picking one of those songs one of you know maybe it'd be interesting to hear a lesser heard. Bon Jovi Song. Oh God but then I thought about it and as you know the last song of each year's playlist I try to make it a little uplifting. Oh right right. And it's going to be from like their nineties Ballad Years Wilkerson. They say you gotTa hold on what you got each other given a shot. Kristen yeah take my hand if you will we'll make it God. Let's listen to living on a prayer by Bon Jovi Fold Br that was living on a prayer from Bon Jovi. That was the second number one single off of their third album. Slippery when wet from nineteen eighty six. Yeah obviously that's that went to number one. That was one of the biggest songs ever just at the the song itself went three times platinum and then obviously that album was a huge smash hit. I'm sure everyone has heard living on a prayer over and over and over again. But you know he ever truly heard it you know there ought about Tommy and Gina and what their lives are like. It's their signature song and it's pretty probably their best song so if I'm going to throw Bon Jovi Song in there that's going to be it. We're GONNA. We're going to close the playlist with that one. I'm not going to throw you a deep cut from Bon Jovi's two thousand two over whatever in Kita. Thank you joe for that. That's fun and here's the thing about the music video. It was like the well-done version of the so far away from music video of age. Their unstaged there goofing around but there truly having fun and they're really playing to the camera in a very like late eighties way honest. That's lifting them up in the audience for the show that night there. There's an actual audience for a lot of the shots. Yeah at the end they go. It's in black and white for the first two thirds in the final third. It's cold and there's an audience. They're also very I. I mean like Bon. Jovi is full alerting with the camera. He thinks several times. I'm like Oh yeah I get it? He was hot. I think he was hard but he was cute. Yes yes I wasn't part of it. He was like a baby face. Bad boy do you know what I mean like? Just he had the error you know teen girls loved him but grandma's I loved him. He told lines so expertly he had mass appeal across just about everybody and he makes strong. I contact with the camera so much during the video and stuff and I'm like I get it. Bon Jovi's very cute. He's got a handsome face even though his hair is objectively dumb in this video. He's got the kind of like you know kind of permed mullet type thing going on. It's there's not a lot to recommend it but he's cute enough he can get away with it. I just want to highlight of few things number one two weeks ago Janice Hoffman's that on this video. It's twenty twenty and all the sudden. Everybody is living on a prayer. Thank you very much Janice and then also two weeks ago for Ruch Jack said about this video zero percent pornography zero percent girls zero percent cars one hundred percent hair and talent the get out of this current wish you'd said percent hair fifty percents talent. You have one hundred percent hair and talented. Does it add up? Maybe he just. He just doesn't know the breakdown he doesn't know if it's sixty forty seventy three. Oh well one thing. We should acknowledge and this person was quite living on a prayer and seems to be doing better. Bon Jovi keyboardist head crow virus. Oh really I did not know that. Yeah and seems to be doing okay. Oh good I'm headed. Had A diagnosis. What feels like three plus weeks ago and might be out of it. It's the that makes to New Jersey and New York New Jersey. Are The epicenters right now? For America. Yeah Yeah for America. Yes thank you. Thank you for putting that into global perspective. Joe Appreciate it you know I always do. He's keeping a global. Yeah I got you so that.

S2 E72: "One Lucky Fan" author Rich O'Malley, Cape Fear, Fawlty Towers, Thor's Hammer and more!

"Left Penn superstar producer Lindsay Sloane on today's show all Sir Richard All valley and now it's Dennis Miller this is the tennis Miller option your source of opinion stories and laughs from comedian inactive is Dennis Miller is Guy Friday Christian and Peter Cook is dinner with Michael Palin and he's older now not ancient but he's in his career dotage the the climate hysterics out there just remember this eventually they'll come a day where my disbelief will lead and so I always hear these people have the lucid home and were there in the back end of the day New Mall and enough to call it re some would say so premeditated that I've seen Lindsey react to something by taking coffee in after she heard it and then spitting yes the big honking gruel Lucas flying across the cameron you'd have to hear billy jump in into you wanting to burn me at the stake and I just would remind you that's a lot of carbon I know I know I can't appeal to your the original exorcists I have not no well there's a couple of times the maximum side over really cracks young Linda Blair up and she does spit project it God Linda wasn't a Gruel Gi the pre yardbirds version tired at emotional to save me laugh out loud so what's up in the world I think we have a guest today Christian we do so it is rich o'malley who you surprised Lindsey and she almost Spit coffee all over the console so well done Sir yes thank you. Here's the thing that her expectations displayed fifty cent. He says he's going to work on his autobiography and it's called Retired emotional beyond the fringe and Peter Cook and Dudley Moore couple of other guys I should know their names but I don't and by the way as much fawlty towers the net remind me when I'm done maybe not just looking for any port in a climate storm Christian I'm doing quite well I wanted you to know that during that job they all grew up listening to all right okay so they like that but then the sort of literate pre python pythons I believe a little bit are in which sort of I don't it ruins the magic of the Split Day And by the way I remember have you ever seen the final credit out takes from the PALIN diaries didn't they you were talking about the Michael Palin diaries I don't remember I told you what about George Harrison running practiced tantric yoga and this is in light maybe nineteen ninety something and I think they were at their hottest weather in the sixties nineteen thirty years after the fact he's probably couldn't have chocolate meltzer as winter right but I don't think you mentioned peer Cook who I think most Americans might not know I think the name of the groups beyond the fringe wrote a book called One lucky fan that you mentioned to you mentioned recently on the show and the day that episode posted he tweeted at Eh podcast right yeah his uncle I guess six people subscribe well his uncle's one of them his uncle is subscribed on multiple devices so van that band was Jeff Beck was in yeah that's what I thought let me see I told you that great coach from Peter Cook in Michael Saint site that's sort of but hopefully in amongst the crazies there is a pragmatist they'll say that's lot of carbon uh-huh Python looks up to right correct or is it the goon show I think it was baldness show show a spike milligan and that was like a radio show that me as the kids say that he was very excited to hear mentioned so we started trading messages and I thought I would let him come on the show how to mention his because I might can you subscribe to a podcast on a vibrator genital vibrator my he's like counts as four of those six and he led him now so he was very excited so I thought that the it would be a good chat for the show and not just but anyway if you haven't seen those films kids that is a scary scary people always say what's scary and I I always have to okay the Diem Oh podcast vibrator was very professional I love that you just called the show Diem Oh moved into the hip fruits yes the way the Islamic can I tell you 'cause lumbar is so weak yeah somewhere near Beijing where you're going up the I think that's a key line in the The Chinese translation of the Scorsese remake of Cape Fear. Yeah that's that's still refers to you've got a bunch of worries up your ass or something as opposed to a place on a river start lear corrupting the young now now listen and Lindsey promised me I won't end up in Corden for this like laughing at jokes that's what you realize even women are a little touchy understand of course an ear woman so I'm just saying when you guys all get together for the you know up and saying you know dentist did something and I got a little I wasn't quite a high elbow was angry same thing and it's so so good I believe Mitchum and Gregory Peck turn up in a remake mistake I do believe you're correct I think really creeps me out or in cold blood original movies creepy but by and large I other other things to watch the you know they got a bus dot five times a day I always thing I can't do that strategy you have good beard though so like you have that part cover we can't watch them but to me scary is like things that creep in obsessionally and there's nothing scary William Shatner in that twilight zone episode so can the remake uses Bernard Herman's the Soundtrack Scorsese does intact but up being That's still in what I think it means or does that mean Larry Fishburne say The scariest thing to me and I can't watch the films where they just you know kids check into a cheap hotel and Switzerland end up carved up you know that sort of playing with this double header question answer have you seen it yeah diner yeah and he can't leave and eventually cost him his marriage I think that that's Hi Abbreviate are showed how you file names the New York New York New York is it too close to home or is that like when when you say up the Anyang or is it out the young young or up the union out the union I know I don't know maybe it's up don't creamy out half as much but Cape Fear's pretty creepy film so if you're Chinese out there and because she looks like she got like a quicksilver waving her hair and she always wearing high collared things I guess like Nora Ephron she hates her where are you going to hide your family and he says up the Yang and remains on a houseboat up there I've seen both those recently by the way and I can't the Obama where it's unexpected just crazy I'll say something when you turn around you turn all of our heads around thing where it's you know like the Grand Guignol Ymca thing kids getting together and bivouacking for a night don't which one I I like them both but I guess I'd have to go with the the original because of the black and white although Deniro's horrifying Fox and they hired Donna Brazile the next day and by the way Donna Brazile looks like doctor strange doesn't she well she is it is Islam we're going to turn on Yoga because they're trying to encroach with the downward dog thing carved out a grandfather clause see that's what I think being a God is you get the right to nickname everyone and it sticks are there any insulin maniacal gods and then there's some cats and hammered kid has gone off his feet and just comes in and hacks him up so I can't do those so I don't know if they're that's scary because they'd literate we sat that fractious discussion about what thors hammers called I always thought it was called the hammer but you told me it's me owner but is how do I get her because that's where Fox's after I got the get the message that the suns take it over from Roper is no longer welcome the hold the power of life and death today does the tribunal ever performed the wave DRC up so I know that they do usually hit around a beach ball ing-wen completely obsessed with mine fuck that is say Joel but there is a twilight zone an old one where shatner starts going up you know if you know Trish was in pacalypse now sixteen right yeah that's that's what I thought yeah what was his name speed so but in the wine type like Beaujolais Yeah and then there's the name of the the the little label so we're both breast when you think if you ever got to being a God that you wouldn't feel the need to give nicknames though I mean isn't that I mean if you could fly and wield a hammer so you wanted to be Islamic lumbar problems plus I don't trust the religions where you can get winded praying hey I see where the way you can Chris what's our number one eight six six five zero nine rant that's eight six six five nine seven two six eight or you prepare a vegetarian dishes made only with meat you know all sorts they put in a good word Dizengoff tasseled but he's a decent he's our asshole you start rounding and I am Oh that's right Christians honorary married into it Yeah Glimpse Zana you can save vegetable you know you know really we have to save think about what a hectic life she lied if you can't finish word vegetable is that the or that's your Reu I think is actually what they call it so you're you're not wrong that's the just it's not his nickname for it but that's the metal that it's forged from listen regular afternoon for them that they broke out the wave and their boredom but do God's maniacal and do tribunals are performed there for downward very touchy about things and by the way when you say the phrase again Yang right just sure when you say that in China where he starts the speaks to my inner OCD thing by the way I'm currently in the midst of an add OCD thing run constantly chain diced up or stripped up or made to look like an Eggplant parm made strictly with meets it sounds great thought King's son to my dog has fleas and I believe the last person I heard performed live was a karaoke night oddly enough in Manila by Manuel Noriega by COBB has parking's but of course as as a despot of the country therefore vegetetable now that's its own form of cash instable Yay just got to keep it simple Christ talking to these people insist she does always i WanNa do the the you know they're always moving things over sexually and if cumberbatch doesn't want it on duck strange to they ought to go with Donna Brazile Doc Hess borelli would that be the differentiation that we're talking about here between Earth Hammer and would you make me owner and the the metal the Hessian troops penis helmets were shape like those old Dr Presentations I think it would be cool to take all the corn things off and you know they lied those little parking's eight to be grotesque by saying caught my cobb has is to a specific type of helmet well anyway speaking of genetic modification I can actor deaf to everybody except interesting people something to do with feely in the station neck and she's always equipped with the eye of Obama Gatto group that's for insider and what does that mean imagine that you're hired by the tobacco industry to do in the safer alternative it'll be a Russell Crowe also same difference did Torque Amata ever start the wave really be disarming if you're in the cross intelligent people get through to me not be the invention of lease this week definitely this week for sure all right let me just see Union A. N. is suing Fox really I guess are no no not Fox when Rachel maddow but that reeks of Fox to me appeal had to say his penis is character do you think during World War One how you can't shut it off yeah and you've got a lot on your mind I asked this in the same way as a at tribunals where people Islam Lumbar but who do you think put the whammy on vaping somebody's got this misdirect dot there where all of a sudden vaping then reading from the dictionary putting these stops vegetable but undiscerning veg now I know you're trying to look hip all right what else it yeah let's say no does she said that's her favorite and that's why we should start we should yeah just pitched a show this morning to the food network counterintuitive but I think that might be the wave of the future I'm going to start I wanted to show ps now wouldn't you make that if you were like granite cats at the linea he's always looking for unique sup- something about I'm trying to take out every third little hair in there that picks up idiots and assholes and just to only let wise I would never go to vape country what is flavor country it's Marlboro Denton the nick foles plays like four plays and gets a broken something and they have to pay him and he's out for the rest of the year I really look at that then you get your veg- well where are you going that you can't put the bowl on the ad what about people put that extra syllable in my work what you wanted me to remind Fucker Fawlty Towers Genetically Modified Foods you had in my book lined up in your hand I think I think Amazon recommended it to me from all read and I I love reading a baseball books and gotta get back to Marlborough Lights cannot vape people were dying and wondering who put me on it well vaping flavor country so that's the smoking smoking obviously luckiest man in the world today Nick Fault I mean think about it I mean that's not that horrible injury that is lucky I'm not being perverse wouldn't be luckier for him to earn at now that's a whole year of taking harder shots you know that's like losing your toe Anton I wonder Leonard Bernstein had trouble with that was that Elmer Elmer Bernstein you know the theme from the magnificent from possibly be the only person who could hanging in a battle strength was hulk can you see going home at night and cracking a beer and going a nickname this hammer it just don't see that Pittsburgh but PNC parks absolutely beautiful magnificent it almost feels like a minor league park but the view out of the stadiums majestic we about this because all of a sudden vaping this morning is in giant noticed as infinitely more evil than smoking I people say you gotta get back to old school you meat dish you hate it when people say then you get your veg yet because it's not quite panties yeah it really at this point anytime he signed for over twenty it must be twenty five million dollars right are let's say got twenty think about fucked up the world is travel books and somehow you must have got Algorithm together Great Yeah I love roadies I took a beautiful Rhody a few years ago and six and eight nights barely a trifle compared to you that I I agree with you that and I thought well maybe my my view of this is skewed since I grew up in here's the second day and losing a baby toe in the NAM you know you're out purple heart and your back imbalances a little fucked up you're never gonNA do balanced tin you to work hard in my lab at night trying to come up with a serum that'll caused deafness in myself I'll test it like the guy who cured hillock up I mean that's where I grew up and when did it first START I I know for the book I just read the book but for the listeners purposes sure I mean we started Oh and I might told this joke it's pretty weak so sorry but I have these notes written did you get that and tonight I'm having some peas on a cop back in college a bunch of friends and I we took a couple of road trips after you know each of us graduated one year we went down we went over to the Midwest and we did a sort of normal it sounds fun but it's anybody who's watched the amazing race or anybody who's been a comedian like me on the road the planning is just unbelievable so some of the ballparks including your number one baseball park my friend Tom Hanks and I rented a tour bus and took some friends and our children and did eight hey folks welcome to the Dennis Miller option and right off the bat I just WanNa say Gotcha I indeed believe that at the end when you're emotional after the last one because you must have started this relatively early and it's the young I still think of Forbes field night get choked up I think twelve parks at that time so it really started with baseball is I think it does for most sports fans WANNA take these kinds of trips they're the most unique places in all of sports there's a lifetime right next to the John Three Sixteen Guy Yeah and it's just I don't know even creepy on your way to know that honors killed you know it killed as you did sort of eight parks over eight nights I think ours was like seven and ten and a year after we decided to go crazy we went all the way across the country and that's why I took the crazy trip that you're referring to their forty one games and fifty three days folks you must be a man in full I remember thinking turnout they paid over Marlboro but you never heard the beginning with the the little I it's more sprightly at the beginning thing they think Malik I'm here Don Hey there he is Ricardo you'll my friend crate that I know it's normally us the questions. I have one if I may hit shoot and the fragility of the connections and all that and I remember thinking God this guy is a pretty resilient cat because you seem to keep good spirits drew me those times couple of times you've got a little worn diner cranky or pissed off at a venue being so lack of trying don't they pick it up the you know my balls are in the saddle part you never get that little greatly from spammed these Camby's mom and she's got a lucky well and use him and then I branched up other sports and events look back and say well I've got about eighty teams under my belt here and I'm thinking of writing this book I better go finish the beam again but who gives a fuck your out of the swamp yeah back in DC fucked up bigger swamp believe our guest is with us with the city right there you feel like you can touch the yellow bridges when such charm yeah I absolutely adore that place I I was touched by how the these things matter uh-huh and from there it just you know every time I would go on a trip to go to a wedding or go see friends it was crazy working for its wants to go see game while he's in town you you you also good good spirit I thought that was a key part of the book if you're going to go on a bit of a caprice with a guy a junket you don't WanNa be out there with Letterman who's enjoying doing a shot he wanted to be out there somebody who's enjoying it and you you dug it gives us some of the highlights maybe three to five without tipping the whole thing I want people to go buy it and read it and remember to rate review and share until next time that's the show and we are out of here lucky fan from bleachers box each chasing the ultimate sports during the visit all under twenty three MLB NBA NFL NHL teams. Where do they only the book is one lucky fan from bleachers to box seats and our bridge the title but I was surprised you know when I looked at you you in your picture winner take up in Canada I loved you know the the spirit of the fans they had stolen away from the movement using they got it back rightfully and they passed wondering is crumbling the fan into the team stinks and you're like what am I doing here right Yep we're talking to rich the Go-to your favorite bookseller out online or a brick and mortar fashioned way and if they don't have it you can obviously asked him to order it but obviously the easiest over the course of two plus months barely getting home at all especially around the holidays which was doubly pointed when you're out on the road by yourself this is always not a triathlete but you must be some good shape you must not smoke or drink all that much because it was such an arduous schedule and yet even when you had an afternoon or evening super bowl their world series been played there a lot of people don't realize that history and all sports My mother highlight of the trip was from unassuming little town a regular fan including the coliseum but when I was young I read an article in sports illustrated magazine about Michigan I was fascinated because at a fraternity house there that was staffed by the band to get to be in that building one hundred thousand people you know screaming the fights on was just again such a huge bill and I had to take advantage of that two months sway nowadays is to go online and and most websites and sell books will have it yeah I mean the trip was a food it was obviously a grind twenty five thousand miles you want to experience everything that has to offer if you're a big music fan and you see a concert in town for me it was the killer is I'm like oh I love to kill her removes through this figure for book that you waited your whole life to write you gotta go figure the home and I was already out of there and I kept seeing these things along the way and I I say in one Chapter I tell people how I do what I do and make recommendations and like don't forget to look at other things while you're in town but it's not just about going to see a sports venue you wanna take in a city the Dan of the mellow men and one was billy Taylor and I remember another one was was it Raleigh Reggie McKenzie and I always thought oh I'd love to get up there tell me about Papua's touched that you would go to see a concert or I'm GonNa throw a college game in here I thought boy this guy is a bee's look at dance that you have put together as you said and you know it all out for you but you know you didn't come across those dungeons where it's at that building every night and they're proud and they're loud and it's a it's a great experience and then we also have the mold into where you know you missed that flight and you start panicking because you have this period where I can do anything I wanted and I happen to not just great I know it's like a woman in the latter stages of pregnancy can eat whatever she wants coliseum and you say holy crap this place is so much more than I imagined when I see it on TV and it's majestic and you feel like you're a part of history and Freddie panicking and I panicked so much that I took the first deal that I heard which was obviously steel so I got hosed I bought a student ticket which I did not notice like I of course didn't running a personal trainer you miss your family and your friends and you're wondering what the hell you're doing out there but yeah I mean you have those moments when you walk into you know Ellie Lane the La Forum I can go see the La four on a trip about you know sports where it's not a perfect and waited my whole life Michigan versus Ohio State is tell me about the hundred and four thousand seat Michigan Game I'll tell you what was the best part of that for me was trying to get into thing I mean you could obviously imagine it's the tell me so it was a valid ticket which I asked is this a real ticket and he said yes and written certainly but three over on the back and said students only I'm not a student so able to flip that to a student who was very gracious to the deal of a lifetime because I told him at a discount and then I went over to the alumni tent anybody got any extras and alumni ended up fellow that you didn't take the right off rather gave it to them but I was heartened in your travels how many lovely people you ran into you know it's disheartening you were definitely stuck at so why not imbibe I always Doug Michigan as you name some of these places I've been to many of them just desserts ticket I mean that's the library of the year right there and I am just walking up to the stadium like going to get in easily this is going to be fine and then I started seeing the prices being quoted in Ah I got some extras we want to pay and I told him what he wanted to pay you says great and then I walked in and on the forty yard line fifteen rosen right I mean you come across so many different people and one of the things that I talked about is how similar fans are no matter where they come from their experiences their background how they wind up from the field it was it was just a dream and then it turns out it was a charitable thing because the guy said sell this ticket I'm GonNa take the money and donate it to charity and I assume you seem like org misery with we're talking rich o'malley who is the author of one lucky fan from bleachers the box seats I finished the book in the last week and I enjoyed it immensely is because only the assholes seem to make the headlines Antonio Brown all over the place now but it's nice to get out amidst the in the hinterland and just remind you so you're a fan of or do you like the dolphins colors in the logo and you pick them and then later on in life that decision that you made when you were seven turns out to have a lot of you know in for who they wind up rooting for you know we all have different origin stories as you know where we become a fan as a kid usually not much thought goes into it. If you're doing your family tells you I think you will too you can follow rich on twitter at Rich o'malley you've had pretty good draw though because if you aren't going to have a team that you favour yourself that it is a bit of a Norman Rockwell though there are fine people everywhere and often are strangers to you but they ended up being friends right winter and one who does what they did yesterday and you know always chokes away on lose the game so they kind of forms who you are but we all these things one I'm it's probably the most famous one it's like the my Sharona of Super Bowl things and then I think you've also got the devils in there when I think hockey nothing Gordy Howe going in whol against the go clock this kid and beat the shit out of him at age fifty that might be hockey but next to that Scotty Stevenson us through the Yanks must be upper on twenty six or twenty five I can't even so many I can't keep count anymore but and then the jets are still at one but boy was it in the neutral zone lighten up lender created house of all time tell me about the devils and you were there for the sweet spot and you it got very messy I had a slade Gorton type skull formation always made him look helmeted even when he was just looked like he had a helmet on more when he didn't have his helmet off ear and other great stories I was able to see them skied around with the Cup even though I didn't have a ticket to that game because someone we marched up to the door of the arena after sure fan DNA no matter what kind of team we're at four at the end of the day we're just looking for instance just lounging and you know we're looking for someone else to share that moment of joy to he was just balding we're talking to Rich o'malley and the delightful book is one lucky fan from the box seats just the buzzer sounded someone held a hundred dollar bill up to the door and someone inside the door open and the onrush began about fifty doubles fans and we ran level of athleticism and it's been a rough ride in New York for basketball and that includes Saint John's which I obviously talk about in the book but yeah I would point where we're mark broke our hearts which is a natural hat trick the conference finals and the next ah been hushing this kind of person you become a Yankees fan of the jets managed no that's a very dichotomy fan experience I mean I wonder who's a pretty consistent overcame in and stole his job and we never let him down but obviously a certain point you realize well we wouldn't be having these Stanley Cups probably if we had gone plans so that's fine girl who is at six four six five small slash power forward in between Wellington and the the two thousand appearance which was just a blip rarely in the finals it's been really just I it's it's painful to even pay attention anymore and so me I really enjoyed going to the NBA Games when I did that on on the major trip that I took either just watching those athletes or close it it's a whole that was the year I started following them and it's just been a roller coaster straight down since but you have those moments where we have an upset or we beat number one villanova it's just Dolan was projected back in time Willis Reed doesn't even limp Outta the locker room it's it's it's a really rough funding to me you're not even a Mardi door fan like the the backup which made me laugh aloud yeah I mean when I became a devil's fan I did island was named Bill Thomas or something I can't remember he was a real man though I remember during that or one hundred twenty three stops on different birthing delivery you going around interjecting yourself into strangers lies being there for Lomas birth an epidural I can't I can't pretend that city field is my favorite probably because I've got so many bad memories there was funny we went to Ronnie Howard was with us at night I usually root for the Knicks and nets I the NBA was for a while sort of my least favorite pro sport now it's sort of usurped footballer Right Shomali on twitter at Richaud Alley I have to agree with both of you that my favorite ballpark is the one in Pittsburgh I was very impressed by when I saw and at the presser that's funny line motherfucking mother wow andy would be so pissed because of one friend and then everyone in our high schools arranger spanner islanders fan but my friend was a devil's fan like all right cool let's go with them and then it turned out to be the beginning of my heart and soul basketball I'm a college basketball junkie I'd always Louis Yeah and that was the last time they were any good on you know we had a a a on their views on that team was so much fun to watch and they really didn't take any go from anybody but since the one of the best runs in the last twenty years but we were diehard Kristiangaric fans and he was a starter and that you know the he did couple of last questions are is it knicks or Super John Williamson at the nets or because of its the knicks. I feel bad because the Olen I don't know man did you want to share your thoughts on having watched fawlty towers recently the first one did not work from there's a couple of key I feel like we're the kings in the world and for for a team

Mason and Ireland HR 3: Fast Track!

"I let's see time for fast track. How about this John? One side of the Coin Arthur VICI and makes it to the NBA on the other side of the coin doesn't quite get there called in the air he makes it. I'M GONNA say makes it first Armenian. Nba Jerry Meets Arthur. His name is Gary Right. Arthur his dad. Because there's an Arthur tradition tweeting dad or brother could be it could be a fabio but the guy we talked to Gary so Arthur is unlikely to make the hall of fame. Yes Very Gary. I'm married the NBA. Okay got it Jack. You just never mind you you said. He's unlikely to make the hall of fame. I just can't just move on. Just Lindsey Roll with it. We got a whole hour to go. I got a call. You guys out what I can you know okay. So here's a question that all you can participate in. Us weekly has come up with a concept they call quarantine house come Magin. You were stuck in a house with five other people. But I'm GonNa let you pick the people. I have four houses. You get to pick which one you would be quarantined in you guys. Just tell me which house you would want to go into all right so here we go. There's four houses house number one. David Blaine the magician. Kanye West Billy eyelash Taylor swift and Oprah. Those are the five David Blaine Konya. Billy Taylor swift and Oprah all right house number two Megan Markle Demi Levato Tina fey George Clooney and Chapelle. Ooh All right. That's number two. Megan Markle Demi Levato Tina fey. George Clooney Dave Chapelle House number three Jennifer Lopez Lebron James Gordon Ramsay Post Malone and Jennifer Aniston. That's house number. Three Jennifer Lopez Lebron James Gordon Ramsay Post Malone and Jennifer Aniston House number. Four beyond. Say Ellen Degeneres Chris Hemsworth Emma Watson and Britney Spears Caso beyond say Ellen Degeneres Chris Hemsworth Emma Watson Britney Spears now you guys get to pick four now I have guessed in my own head which one I think you're going to pick so I'll see if I got it right now. Lindsey have you decided you know which would go into yes okay. I'm predicting you're going to say house number. Two am I right. You're close because Dave Chappelle is one of those people that's why picked it. Yeah right but I have no desire to talk with Meghan Markle or Tina fey or Jimmy Looney. So interesting performer. Which one did you pick? You WanNa get the second one. No No. Just tell me because I missed. I thought you would have to house number three four shirt Gordon. Ramsay can cook and Lebron is the goat. Okay you're cleaning your Cleveland Girl and you get J. Lo Aright futch. I predicted that you would pick house number one am I right. It's a close close second because I think a house number three. That's okay house number one. I get the magic because I thought because the music and the magician you would get in Konya you and Billy eyelash anatoly swift and Oprah and I'm not and you get David Blaine to keep you entertained until I'm not a Taylor Swift guy get you get cutty and really island. No but I gotTA. Lindsey said it best Gordon Ramsay can cook I hang out with a broken. Jaylo and Jennifer Aniston. So that's a win for me okay. All Right Mace I predicted in this was simply based on one person. Did you pick house number four? Am I right? No who is that person beyond say. I thought you'd WANNA hang out with like beyond say you know. I hate the beehive you had to be high. But you wouldn't be in there with the beehive. Yeah you like you know like Alan. Pick Three. Pick three also. It's the Lebron thing is great but it's really because J. Lo and Jennifer. Aniston seem like the nicest people they really do seem like. Nice people and I would want to be nice people. There's only one jerk in house number three. It's Gordon Ramsay. He's the all year and cut and he could cook right so he. Yeah I think three is the best house mean clooney. But you stick me with Levada. And I don't care about Megan Markle Oprah and second place would be Oprah and the David Blaine House Who else is in that one kind? Yeah Billy Taylor swift honey as a jerk. I do love your swift though. So Yeah No. I'm going house number three I feel. They're not very evenly distributed. I feel like all the good stuff is in house three well. There are actually six houses and I knocked to the six out. Because I didn't think you guys would have any interest in in the other two but the for me it would be a coin flip between two and three and I would lean towards to simply because I could play basketball with clooney. He's a big basketball player. And Tina Fey. I'm the opposite of you Lindsey. I would really like to talk to Tina Fey. I think she's really funny. And I think Chapelle is the funniest person in all four houses. Yeah I think that if if you're going to pick the finest Chapelle does he's asked if I would. I would lean towards to see all three. You guys would be three and I would be in too but that's kind of a fun exercise status. I like David would probably be hiding out in his room if he was stuck in a house with all those people maybe five pack. Let's do this John. What would be without a sex doll question? Excellent a sex robot factory has flaunted. Its most futuristic doll in a giveaway competition real doll. It's called real doll. They've got sex robots that they're giving away one of them and also a trip to its California headquarters along with two nights in a four star. Hotel real doll believes the during these times. The sex robot is exactly what could help contain this contagion. Real Wall Com claims that self isolating doesn't have to be the worst. I'll real dolls are made from platinum grade. Silicon naturally antibacterial and non porous. The company said that demand for sex dolls has surged during the cove. Nineteen crisis quote. Everyone seems a bit of a panic to try and get a dull before their possibly forced into complete isolation John is real dull a real potential help during a quarantine. And do you really think guys order sex dolls? Which of your friends is most likely to use one? I don't know none of my friends have ever admitted to me that they have ordered a sex doll. But just guess it's one right. No no I think I think the way we phrase your question is who would I be? Leased surprised to find out that that they had a sex doll. And and so it's it's you know maze. It's always the straight arrows That that you need to worry about the guys who are you know? Kinda keep everything low key you don't you think they're you know you think there. There's nothing goofy going on. Which means obviously the person most likely to be on. That list is our good friend. Dave shore Dave sure on the floor. Sure on the floor probably has real dolls. But I don't know it for I'm just kidding. David Laugh years even brought him up but yeah no no. It'd be somebody like that somebody. That's like a straight Arrow guy who how about you who I know list. Yeah I'm between. Chris Morales which make sense. Well Chris Probably has one now and it just didn't antenna closet someplace he doesn't know where it is and Mike Trudell. No job no way tales from Minnesota. Okay but the straightest earl I know but wait a minute. I say this out of complete respect for Mike. He has no time for a sex doll. Buried he he's his wife's having a baby he's got like a yes to kids. He has another one on the ways. Wife having a baby. I didn't realize you didn't know that. Yeah boy boy. Number three is on the way. Wow so he's got no time. He has lila the bulldog and he's doing three jobs for the Lakers. He he doesn't have time okay. Then I'll say. Billy Mack. Now Billy Mack would be like morale's he may have one in just had forgotten about direct current. Hugh hefner type life down there in in Newport beach. Yes he is launch fast. Check okay so the. Nfl draft appears to be set for April twenty third. And if it happens during that week a lot of it will be done with videoconferencing Zoom facetime. Google Hangout. Things like that right. Those platforms are Hackel. If you get a really good. It guy he could conceivably hack into another teams Zuma Count and listening on your draft discussions. John Harbaugh the Ravens head coach. Says he's already worried about it. So let's say a team does that hacks into another team Zuma count. Maybe a team that plays outside Boston if you know what I mean. Yes if that happens in the league finds out. Do you go full. Houston ASTROS ON MAXIMUM FINE. Gm and coach fired and suspended or do you just take away. Draft picks and look the other way what would be the appropriate penalty if a team hacks another team at the NFL draft. Well you know what happened to the people that hacked into Jeff Munoz database? They went to jail. They wanted to throw the book at them if they do it. It is a federal crime to do what you're suggesting a federal crime to hack into other people's stuff so yeah. I think prison is the appropriate answer. I wouldn't I wouldn't object to that. I think that if you're going to have a kind of an honor system here and you're GONNA make everybody get around this corona virus by using technology and somebody else and I wouldn't if I was Roger Goodell. I would come out in state this in advance that anybody found hacking in relation to the NFL draft immediately. You lose all your draft picks for the next year and you get fully prosecuted to the full extent of the law and I think hopefully that would discourage them. Yeah I think I think they should hold up. What HAPPENED WITH JEFF? Luna's database in Houston as an example of what happens when you hack into other people's stuff illegally all right more fasttrack this time And Lindsey. We'VE GOT QUESTIONS COMING UP. Mason and Ireland seven ten. Espn I rolling on with fasttrack and Ireland. So you know it's it's a fun fun. Why don't you go back all right guys so today marks anniversary for two of the greatest baseball movies ever twenty seven years ago in one thousand? Nine hundred thirty. Two sandlot was released in theaters and thirty one years ago in nineteen eighty nine one of my favorite movies. Not just sports movies but just movies. In general Major League was released. I asked you is an ladies. What are your three favorite baseball movies of all time? All right so I think we're GONNA get nine different answer. Twelve different answers of all four of US play mine. Mine is going to be the strangest. 'cause I love baseball movies? I think baseball is just a great subject for movies and so I started thinking about this and there's a whole bunch of movies that are great that the Sandlot. I wouldn't make my top three either. What any of these either would any of these. But they're all great league of their own great movie not my top. Three love of the game when Kevin Costner throws the perfect game Yankee Stadium. Great Movie Gray. Not In my top three the rookie with Dennis Quaid. Which is the story of Jimmy Morris? The guy who pitched to the high school team and then made it to. The majors is outstanding of crunch. Major League. I'm with you. I thought those moves great. Wouldn't be in my top. Three eight men out. The story of the Black Sox scandal great movie not my top three. Believe it or not field of dreams is not in my top three that movie. That movie didn't work for me and the natural I thought was great with Robert Redford but not in my top. Three here is my top three and I realized my number three. I liked more than most other people like. But I'm a big fan of Michael Lewis. I can watch it over and I love the movie. Moneyball Yup with Brad Pitt starring Billy Bean and Jona Hill as Paul Deeper Desta and I just thought that that movie completely worked for me. If it comes on I'd never turn it off. I Always Watch moneyball. The second best baseball movie ever is bad. News bears the original with Walter Matthau and And tatum O'Neal making no the remake gets thrown out. The original. Excellent Matthaus grade is butter maker. The manager Tatum. O'neal Kelly leak is made. Who's the kid the place Kelly leak? Jackie Earle Hate Acura Haley. Yeah came back. And had like a comeback as an actor nominated for an Oscar winning actor. Yeah but the original bad news bears Walter Matthau fantastic and the best baseball movie of all time. And maybe I'll be surprised if this isn't in your top three because you worked in Minor League baseball is Ron. Shelton's Bull Durham. Y- where the story of Kevin Costner as a journeyman minor leaguer. Tim Robbins Susan. Serandon just a fantastic movie. Start to finish Lindsey of pinning down Ron Shelton. Aren't we trying to get him on the show? At some point he's going to be on either Thursday or Friday. Okay so so. We'll talk to run this week but that is my favorite all time baseball movie Linda. You what are your top three. I'm GonNa go with the Sandlot. Great movie a League of their own. Just because that's one of those movies I can watch a million times Tom. Hanks's go. I was in that movie. No masons in that movie I remember we. We found that out or I found that out like what yesterday or number three you're going to have to like screen shot and send me a picture and then my last one is not really like a baseball movie. But it's a documentary since I love documentaries and it's no a documentary which is about what happened after dock ellis pitched a no hitter on LSD team documents. So good it's so well macy sugar a documentary or is it fictional. Sugar is a documentary and a great one about what happens. It follows a player who comes from the Dominican Republic and their experience coming to play baseball in America. Yes you Lindsey. Watch that one too if you like. Docs that's a really good movie too. It's called Sugar Mace. What are yours? My number three hasn't even been mentioned. It's Bingo long traveling all stars motorcade. God that's my honorable mention. Yeah Billy Dee Williams James Earl Jones. Richard Pryor Unbelievably Brown yeah. That's a great cast. Fantastic my number. Two is bull. Durham I worked in the minor leagues. And I can tell you if you've ever wondered what it's like to be in the minor leagues. Just look at that movie. That's exactly what it is and for me. The movie captures the Mystical. Quality of baseball is field of dreams. I when I saw the first time I just I was in tears at the end. It is a great great movie that I absolutely love so field of dreams my number one fun tortures number one Major League Number two. Don't laugh at me. Mr Baseball with Tom. Selleck hate it. I wouldn't put in my top three. I thought it was okay. This is one of my favorite movies and also number three forty two Jackie Robinson store that on TV. Yeah that's outstanding and by the way great performances by Chadwick Bozeman as Jackie and Harrison. Ford is branch Rickey. He would have movies incredibly. Well Done Yup good question. All right Lindsay back. All right so for anyone here in the US who complains about warranty and the lack of things you're able to do. I just want to point out that we have a lot better here than other places for a multitude of reasons but one that we've probably all take for granted is takeout food so it's not allowed in the UK. They've completely banned it so all of their restaurants and fast food places have been completely shut. Down can't get delivery can get to go food. They're just done with the food service industry. So it's forcing people obviously to cook their own food. And some are getting really creative including Dan Fowl. Who has worked day and night to perfect to perfect his KFC chicken at home recipe and he sure recipe with the Internet. It was a huge smash hit. Many people were claiming that it was exactly like the real thing so wanted to ask you guys. Is there one specific restaurant dish that you would absolutely love to be able to replicate for me? This is easy. There is a restaurant and current Omar. That is so good. It's packed every night. Obviously not now with the virus but when in in simpler times is packed every night. It's called Rothschild's. It's an Italian restaurant on the corner of H. And Macarthur and they have a lobster salad. That is insane. It's like if you eat it. You said you say to yourself I could eat it every day. It's just I don't know what they put in it. I don't know what dressings on it I know. It's got a legit a little tiny of lobster and that's it if I could replicate that would eat it every single day. That's my one if I can only replicate one thing ever would be that for me and it's weird. I ordered it over the weekend. I'd forgotten how much I love it. It is the Chinese chicken. Salad from chin-chin. Oh in my neighborhood. Did they re the Chinese Chicken Salads? Unbelievable it's unbelievable. I had it delivered from the one in Brentwood and it is fantastic. I I would have no idea how to make their dressing. They're dressing as some magical formula but the Chinese chicken salad at attention is my absolute favorite. That restaurant that you had a delivered from. Yeah one of the favorite restaurants of both Kris Jenner and Nicole Brown Simpson really in Enbrel. Now it's very. It was very close to where Nicole Brown Simpson lived. Lindsey what's yours on Mine Scott to be. It's a restaurant back in Ohio. It's called Santos and they make the best Manicotti. It's so delicious. It's like they have the best red sauce and the best. I don't know how they make the crappy things that they put the cheese in. It's so good it's delicious fun. Show you one one thing you can copy and you do it exactly. There's a pizza place in Eagle. Rock called Casa Bianca. And it's I'm it's the Best Pizza L. A. If I can eat that every day I I would for the rest of my life. Well there you go. There's four orders for people to go out and try when things get better absolutely or have them delivered Well except for Lindsay's perfect it. I'll deliver it to everybody. Exit more faster coming up next base in Ireland seventeen. Espn I rolling on with fast-track. And it's to me fast chat. How about a little game? Normally at this time of year people go on spring break. It is an American tradition. John where did you go for? Spring Break Mazatlan Mexico. A lot of places all around Mexico I went to. Fort Myers Florida Lindsey. Did you go on spring break? I went to Panama City beach and Myrtle beach there. You go and what about you never been spring? Break Point. You've no. You didn't go to your spring break. What delayed gloomy prime depriving? Sorry all right here we go. I've got a multiple choice game These are all about spring break number. One y'all can play number one every year on average. How many go on spring break is it two million or is it four and a half million John? Two Million Johnson's two million Lindsey for half million four and a half million fun. I'll say two million two million the correct answer. You are overestimating the number. It is Two million people go go spring. Break too many kids every year. All right during spring break South Padre Island averages. How many arrests per day is at twenty five or is it one hundred twenty five Lindsay? What do you think on a twenty five twenty five one twenty one twenty five John? One Twenty five correct answer only twenty five. They're fairly well behaved. Everything up at South Padre island all right. What percentage of women in this is sad drink alcohol during spring break until they become sick or passed out sick or passed out? Is it twenty five percent or is it forty percent forty percent forty percent John? No twenty-five percent twenty five percent Lindsay. I'm GonNa say Twenty Five. It is forty percent fast sick or get passed out. Yeah wrong with sisterhood. Lindsey number now. What percentage of students on spring break report never or rarely using condoms never or rarely using condoms is thirty five percent. Or is it seventy five percent John? Seventy Five Johnson. Seventy Five Lindsay. Seventy five seventy. Five Fund definitely seventy-five sadly yeah. You guys are all right. Rarely or never using condoms during spring break. How many drinks? On average the average male consume in a day is at seven or is it eighteen. Lindsey seven seven seven seven John. Eighteenth too high seven. You guys all went wrong. It is a wine drinkers. No way it is it is by the way I surpassed that I absolutely surpassed. I didn't even know anyone. I know one person that can drink that much. I used to say surpassed that but never came close. Probably what's really happening? That's when they're telling people what year did the modern spring break. Begin in Fort Lauderdale Florida was at one thousand nine hundred thirty six or nineteen sixty eight nine hundred sixty eight sixty eight John. I'll go the other way. Thirty six thirty six Lindsay. Sixty eight the correct answer. Thirty six. Which leaves us with one John. With three fund with three Lindsey with two and this one is for everything. What is the number one destination for spring breakers in the US is at South Padre Island Texas or Panama City Beach Florida? John and function both have to go. I you know what do you say? They're both incredibly popular. Padre Island Padre Island Punch Animosity Panama City Lindsay. Like for this past year or is it just like overall what is the number one nation for spring breakers in the US? Right now right now. I think South Padre Island played on. Choose the one that gets a right. It is Panama City Beach Florida. Where you went to spring break. Yeah but I know that like a couple of years ago. They had a really bad hurricane that wiped out half of Panama City Beach. So according this spring break survey that I found on the Internet it is Panama City Beach Florida and is never wrong. Internet's not wrong fast. Track okay this from sports illustrated tomorrow. Tom Brady will skype or zoom or facetime with Howard Stern on Sirius. Xm for an interview. This is making the sports world because we need content. It's also big because in the non-sports world because it's Brady's first time on Howard Stern and what will make this more fascinating than anything is. Stern knows nothing about sports. Stern was talking today with his Co host. Robin quivers about all this attention that this is getting. I'M GONNA play a two minute clip. So it's a little bit long but then I want you guys to react to it. Hit it hard news. Radio stations to co host is got. Hello my name is co host to God's things Brady's GonNa let loose for the first time in his career so seem pretty about it. I'm not a fan delivered hard. I just heard him mention the show before this is how little sport I don't know target. I must ignorant. I don't even know that anyway. Areas with STU can thing that I didn't believe was true. Stu Gods right I sort of was like wait a minute before I talk about this. I need to verify it is the Tom Brady is sitting down with. Howard Stern does that message striking odd. I understand Tom Brady going outside of the sports fear for his first interview. But that's a weird place for him to do it. Because Howard Stern is it going to respect some of the things that journalists were soft about things got to respect a strikes me your freedom? It strikes me in sky twenty years of pent up frustration and wants to let it out and has decided that he's Nico on the biggest radio show and they just radio with the best interviewer and is three of anything. I think involve Bill Bell Jack. I'm a nervous wreck right that. That's what I read it. I'm like this is either in April fools joke or this is Tom. Brady is going to set fire to the Earth in one press conference that eat. That is that he doesn't have control of as opposed to all these other antiseptic environment. You're not going to go on there. Just be Boring Brady. Oh No. He's going on there to Tom. Brady that you were not allowed to see for two decades. That's what he's going on. In general I find this so funny because I never understood sports radio in my life. I'll tell you why I never understood it like. Let's say this big game on Sunday. In sports radio you spend trying to predict to talk about what's going to happen patient enough to find out what's going to happen to see the game all right so that last point that stern made his excellent. We'll get into that another time but mace. Do you think Tom Brady is GonNa Unload on Bill Belichick tomorrow? I think he's going to be very very very honest. Because you don't go on Howard Stern for a superficial conversation. I mean he could go. They could do an hour. They can do an hour and a half day. I mean I think I think the onion is going to be appealed with Tom. Brady on on Howard Stern and by the way I I want to say about Dan Levitan. Stern is obviously the best. The Greatest Radio Personality in history in my opinion and I learned so much from listening to Howard Stern over the years. Libertad is really not doing sports talk show. That's the weird thing. Lebatardshow is a lot closer to the style of Howard stern than it is to being a nuts and bolts. Sports talk show so I I actually think stern would like Lebatardshow a Tom. Brady's GonNa Unload on Belichick I think he's. He's got a brand to protect. I don't think he's GonNa be as as crazy as he's GonNa dance around a lot of questions and I. I don't know I think. Yeah he's right because especially stearns gonNA play the well. I'm not like sportstalk Guy so I wanNA understand this. And he's totally GONNA play that card up to the maximum so he can get something out of him. He's not GonNa let him. Just be Tom Brady. Just kind of brush it off and be like. Oh Yeah. We had a great relationship. I'm just moving on to Tampa Bay. There's no ways letting him get away. All right. Here's my prediction. I think it'll be the most revealing Tom Brady interview ever. I think what people aren't aren't thinking about is Tom. Brady is married to a supermodel. Where I think stearns can ask more questions about that than anything he's going to. He's going talk to you about when he gated. Bridget Moynahan he's GonNa talk about supposedly Brady dated terror read. He's going to talk about Zell and her friends in the in the in the world of Models. I you guys think did that Brady is GonNa going to just hammer the patriots. I think difference between hammering the Patriots. I'm not saying he's going to hammer the patriots. I'm just saying he's going to tell the truth. Yeah we're going to find out how brady really feels about Bella. Check and I don't think stern is going to let it go. We're going to find out how brady feels about Bella check. We're going to find out how Brady feels about craft. I wouldn't be surprised if the massage parlor incident comes up. I mean I think all bets are off and I'm not saying Brady is going to set out to destroy the Patriots but I am saying that there's going to be interesting stuff to revealed that we've never heard before about the relationship between Tom. Brady and Bill Belichick yet. Especially since. He's so close with Robert Kraft. I don't think he'll I? You probably won't say what time is that interview on tomorrow morning. I don't know I mean. Stern doesn't work off the clock. He goes on and does his show and he starts it whenever he wants. And whenever you want to hear it before our show tomorrow because we'll definitely yeah Lindsay. Cut that up tomorrow. See if we can get some of that. We'll take one more break and when we come back I got a game and we're GONNA BRING SLEEP. Win for the game. So that'll be cool. Slee would sunsets coming up? He's GonNa play a game with us. Mason Ireland seven to ten ESPN. I'd here we go. It is time for fast tracker. We're rolling with FASTTRACK IRELAND GAME.

Has Ninety Eight? Percent OF IRAQ AS MOSLEMS RIGHT. So there's a very small percentage that are Catholics over sixty thousand caldeans in San Diego. Is that right sixty thousand. So there was a They're almost like dice. Sport that set the well. I guess I wouldn't be correct because it's choose but you. There was a a lot of people from Iraq that were Catholic. All Chosen Everett. Which is what happened with every immigrant group if you know they follow each other and a lot of them followed the churches so if you build a church or a synagogue or whatever the cases they follow so that's what that's what they followed. Okay it's Iraq. Okay last one. Actually I got to mark got time for two more fluid. We another time. How long have I been at? Espn five years. Ten years or fifteen years.

Yeah so what's your. What's your favorite foreign country that you've been? Israel's up there and I'd say Tanzania Yeah those are probably those probably Nathan if you've ever been Israel I've never been to Israel. I really really want to go to Israel crossroads of the world's great religions I I would love to go but have not made that trip yet. It's it's on my list. We're kind of touring central and South America right now. That's tends to be where we're going. We almost went to Wadham all. But we've been to Salvador Nicaragua. Costa Rica Colombia.

I mean you could you could get you could order dinner restaurant. That's about it. Yeah I speak it. I mean growing up I I spoke in my. You know my parents. That's all they spoke to us growing up so because of that. If somebody right now is talking all understand everything that they're saying but I'm not going to be. I'm not going to be all that great in answering back got it got it okay. That was good. What was the voice? Was the voice mail you wanted to play but you can just hit. My Name is Dr Justin Shafa. I am a radiology chief resident living and working in New York City so on the front line but I'm born and raised in. La Lifelong Coping Lakers fan. So I've been listening to Mason an island for many many years. Now I will give you a favor and not saying imagine. I do want to get one point now. The FDA change their recommendations within the last few days the recommend one way lasts when they go outside and at least in New York. I'm still not seeing that. So please Ram ask you can craft one out of a band. A T shirt or any other means. Just do me a favor and don't use a ninety. Five doctors can use in the hospital when we're really up and close with corona virus patients. Thank you good. Wow that's very nice. Do that is really nice right in New York City. Which is the the heart of this? This disaster this crisis God bless man would love imagine line to yeah and of course imagine all the people living for today. Oh Hey by the way sleep. Well where do you weigh in on the question that Somebody wrote in earlier in the Hashtag. Ask Mason in Ireland if there was a big brother competition with all the on air personalities at ESPN. Who'd be the last one standing? There was a big brother last one standing mt now. I know it he he would get himself thrown out. He wouldn't WanNa do it. He him and Kishan would be the first to out. They wouldn't do it. Keyshawn I think would be out right away because you can be a real pain in the ASS. Yeah and he wouldn't. It was funny when he got on dancing with the stars I went. You're going to be the first one out and we go. You don't know how competitive I am. You know what you're talking about Ireland. You're an idiot and I said key you own like nine thousand nine hundred you have a radio show you. Espn three times a week. I Rick Fox saw me. He had to practice two hours a day for that thing. You don't have time to practice. You all will myself victory keyshawn. I won I won APP. Yeah so he wouldn't care and Michael. The trickiest most political one is the one. That's going to make it to the end. So who it's like you'd be out Allen you'd have no chance you just be a guy right travis. Rodgers would go out with you. You and Travis would be the first people who do you think wins. The trickiest most political person at the station between Youtube. Then now we thought it should nano. We think we said we think Sodano would tell so well first of all we did of Morales was put in Morales would win for sure. Morales because Morales would just scheme and tell he'd walk up to you and go. Hey Sleep you're you're Ireland talk and all that crap about you man and you really. What's he saying? Morales would make up a bunch of stuff and then he'd go to Mason and say hey maes you're the you. And then he went and he would just sit back and watch all of us go at each other's throats and he would win but but Sodano would would be second in line for that type. Yeah absolutely well we think that. Doctor for for Senator voicemail. That's that's really amazing. What he's what he's out there doing right now. I cannot even imagine what that's like by the way Doug all those doctors and nurses deserved to be paid a hell of a lot more and hopefully mace. You know. Hopefully there seems like they're getting some sort of positive news. I mean I know it's still crazy out there. But at least they feel like they might be getting towards somewhat of a peak so hopefully that that's the case over the next week or so. Yeah hopefully so so mate's needs. Abc News sent this out on their social media. Account Aerial Footage of south Florida shows hundreds of people lined up not practicing social distancing to get paper applications for unemployment benefits as the state tries to fix problems with unlined filing. What the Hell. I mean there are two Florida. It's can we what is the collective IQ OF THAT STATE? It's always it's always Florida. It's governor needs to go on TV in Florida and just scream at people and they've got that's going to turn into a peekskill Florida's going to turn into a peak at the thing is we love sports. Think about it if Florida has NBA teams NFL. Teams Have Major Major League Baseball teams. I mean they're gonNA screw up everything. Yeah I mean they've got fifteen thousand cases and three hundred deaths. Wow man that's crazy. All right come next have you heard about the biosphere plan Alan. Yes I have quite the plan there but yes you haven't heard about no no. Allan. You're supposed to say no. No what's that and Mason says I tell you next. You still haven't learned the art of the teas. Yeah you gotTa keep teaching me every show I got I got Mesa. You're saying you're ever asks. Have you heard this just go? What's that no I tell you next though and then I'll say I'll tell you next. Let's try the whole thing again. Okay Alan have you heard about the biosphere plan love the idea? Just grounded kidding kidding. I just tease it. Sees IT Allen? Have you heard about the Biosphere Plan Mace? I haven't heard of that at all. Oh I'll I'll explain it next. Mason and Ireland. Slee was here seven ten. Espn Florida's Lihua. Slough was here by the way today. We got a voicemail where somebody said described you as just sunset guy. Let me tell you something. I'll take it. I think it's a step in the right direction. So we just got a tweet from the doctor who we played his voicemail and we thank everybody for we thank Dr Justin Chata for for the voicemail and for the message which is that. Everybody should be wearing a mask if you have to go somewhere. And be an any sort of physical distancing situation where a mask. What was the the Margaret Thatcher? Tweet their sleater. Toby Hicks throughout a tweet. He said Damn Venezuela's Alex. Lihua even brothers in the hood know who Margaret Thatcher is. That's awesome that is awesome all right so a plan came along. Today I was watching the get up and it was the very first thing I saw. I was like put a smile on my face. Put me in a really good mood. Jeff PASA was on here. Jeff Passan's set. Let's just lay out the plan. I write major league. Baseball would be isolating in Arizona. They would be playing games every day at spring training facilities at chase field. You might have two or three games. Today they're all of the logistics of creating this bio dome have to happen in order for it to happen so there are so many hurdles that they have to leap through whether it is ensuring the safety and health of the players ensuring the viability of this dome so that they don't go outside of it and potentially infect other people playing the games getting ready for the Games. Do you keep the bus drivers though tells. You know all these questions dead and need to be answered. What they've got. Scott is the backing of Federal Health Officials Major League Baseball and now the Major League Baseball Players Association have been in touch with officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the National Institute of Health and what they have come to terms with. Is that the likeliest way that baseball is going to be back in two thousand twenty is if they follow this plan now. It's a difficult plan to follow. But I think it's one that has time goes on. They'd come to terms with the idea that they are going to have to so that to me makes sense. It's the first. It's the first idea for baseball. That has come along that I think. Okay Yeah I get that the idea that you would basically take over the city of Phoenix where they've got ten minor league parks. They've got chased field. Where the diamondbacks play and you can play out some sort of limited season just in Arizona where everybody can be tested. They've now apparently got a test that you don't have to wait a couple of days for they're working on that super quick test which you can have an answer on in fifteen minutes you use that to test umpires to test. Broadcast crew support personnel players. And you're able to play those games and maybe everybody staying in. I guess everybody can't stay in one hotel can they? That's too many people. That's too many people but the idea that that everybody would be tested. I what do you think of that as a concept Allen can I can I put some holes in this thing so that the thing about macy's that avid I was looking for some negativity denied to show go ahead and punch holes in it will lead white right into my show perfect Abbott Abbott laboratories? That's the one that's doing these tests now and like five to fifteen minutes late results. Five to fifteen minutes. Guess the question I have is. Did you guys hear Adam Silver yesterday with Ernie Johnson? You guys get a chance to listen to interview at all. I did so. That's that's just I think it kind of shows I appreciate and I hope. Baseball is right in this whole thing but I think the question that came up with Adam silver about fifty times yesterday. It's like it's too early. It's too early to predict anything or to try and figure anything out just because every single day you feel like they're getting new information and silver was talking about how if you'd have told him tomorrow is going to be one month that they are that Basketball's been postponed mace. You and I were in the studio when Rudy. Gobert tested positive. That was right before the game. So tomorrow is going to be four. Weeks What Adam. Silver kept saying if you told me that one month after that went down. I'm going to have more questions than answers like as much as we can play out all these different scenarios and the idea seems like a good idea like it could potentially work but I think there's also a lot of question marks about the testing. There's what they call failed tests that are out there where they don't they don't catch the virus even though somebody might have the virus. I just think that it's probably premature. I hope it happens. I hope all this stuff and we get to sports and that means the testing is ramp. Ramped up for everybody else and we feel like we've got control things but I just feel like it's probably way too early to get too excited or playoff scenarios. Just because it's too early mace like I think it's okay to discuss possible contingency plans. I mean someday this will end right and we don't know exactly when that's going to be and we don't know how it's going to how it's all going to turn out but we know at some point sports is going to come back and although Adam silver says it's too early. I'm sure there are plans based on all right. We get sort of an all clear and may we get sort of an all clear in June. We get sort of an all clear in July that there are plans for for all these different scenarios into speculate about a contingency plan There's nothing wrong with that. And by the way we need you know. We need a little optimism. We need to make people make sure people know that it is going to come back. That sports is going to return and it is on our life at some point is going to return to normal. We're not close right now. There are people dying all over the place right now but there is going to be light at the end of the tunnel and eventually life is going to return in some way. It's unlikely that there will be fans at those early sporting events but those sporting events are going to happen. And it's okay to speculate about contingency plans now which you're right because we've done that with the NBA as well right we've talked about. Maybe Vegas is a place. Maybe everybody stays there. You've heard you've heard Mark Cuban kind of hint at things that maybe we can do everything in one location. So that's a similar thing. Maybe reminds us more this summer league as an example for the NBA. In Vegas as Arizona is for Spring Training Baseball so maybe that's the similarities between the two. I know what you're saying is we've been sitting here and a lot of the lot of the news that we today it's been it's it says down as it can get right and then until some positive things happen is gonNA take. It's GONNA take time for us to get to some kind of normalcy if we ever go back to that normal life like who knows how the world changes from here. It's an idea that's proposed. It does offer some optimism but also at the same time. It's like you'd hate to have this false hope but it still the right thing to do. Come out with these ideas because if one of those working in thirty days that is the case raw to be sitting here watching baseball or basketball whatever the case. I don't understand why we don't just focus on one game every segment where we can put all the teams here buddy. Let's get one game in somehow and then we can build on it. You know there's gotta be a preseason or if we're talking about baseball there's got to be a spring training. Let's see if we can all see one game happen. It'll all put. Everybody relaxed some actually really smart point. Why not just focus on getting one game in whether that's an NBA game or a major league baseball game or something manageable? As opposed to thinking about the entire season tinkering about one game would be really really positive right. And that's where I would focus in each league by the way I think that if you get one game in then you can say and you and you can wait. You can wait for Korea and you can wait for China. Japan China Korea South Korea. Trying to start up baseball and basketball in China is trying to start up basketball. Let's see one game. Let's see what it looks like it. See how it works. Let's get through it without any incidents and then I think we can then all of a sudden all. This isn't mace all this optimism. You're you're trying to get out there. Looks way more feasible because we know what it looks like? I don't think we should shoot for the moon. Just she hit singles. We don't need a home run walshaw. Good point two of kind of timetable of for the NBA. We've always talked about this like okay. When is it too late? How how much longer can you push the season? He said that he's getting word that for the NBA. They liked to have crowned a champion half the playoffs and around Labor Day. So that kind of gives us a little bit of a timetable and I know the NBA completely different position than Major League Baseball. Yeah I don't think the calendar matters Alan. I really no. I think Mason said Beth last week they just need to get this season in whenever it ends and then you worry about next year I think about the calendar when when you need to worry about the counter right now just get some get some games get some get a season it if it's a seven game baseball season starting in September. It's a seventy game baseball. Season's starting in September. I'll take that if it's the NBA playoffs starting in August NBA playoffs starting in August. I'll roll with that. I mean you know I think you know even Mortenson yesterday Chris Mortensen said you know. Maybe it's a nine game NFL season. I'll take that right when you get to the calendar. I think you need to eliminate the term. We can't do that. You know like A. Let's play a thirty game season. We can't do that. No no you can do it you. You gotTA leave every possibility open and everything is better than nothing. Everything here is completely unprecedented. So the resolution or the the way it fixed the way it returns is going to be completely unprecedented. It's not like you can say we'll do it like we did it. The last time there was no last time do it. The way it's exit way. Play the play the cards as their laid right. I mean that we're we're not going to know what the right answer is until we get to that spot but it's it's all going to be different. It's all going to be unprecedented. The whole thing coming up on the Big Sleep Extravaganza Tonight. Baxter's going to hop on. I don't know if you guys saw. He had a couple of good articles over the last couple of days on NBA Players Union assessing rapid tests for covert nineteen. So that could be some options down the road. And he's going to hop on he's going to hop on right now. What do you usually say when when you bring on guests that you're just on just say here's here's Baxter that is coming on? Yeah and then and then David Walstein from the New York Times. You're GONNA jump in. He's not jumping in. He's GonNa Roll. Roll on in rural on it. And what's he talking about? There's a number of sports companies that are making metal supplies or medical supplies. So he's going to kind of highlight these different industries. Out of nowhere are trying to do anything they can to help. And it's actually pretty impressive. The new balances of the world. There's some companies out there. They're completely using their resources to help with the medical field. That sounds cool. Yeah Yeah so while Jerry on Allen County area on tomorrow we will have Scott.

Check out. Truecard today. True cash offer not available in all areas. Yeah. Shut up. Tim says his ideas called the wizard ING world of Robin. Akiva, the guys discuss whatever they know about Harry Potter. They take a quiz defend that which character they are the joined Potter more and take the tests on the show to find that their house patroness and wants to beloved that we'll be talking about like, we don't even know what this is. And then people honestly, if that's your only gripe with this. I think people will like it people will find out what are houses or or or that sort of thing. I I don't know if you know anything about Harry Potter. That's one of my issue. Here is my counter-proposal. There needs to be somebody there with us who's a Potter head. Who is talking us at educating us. I so this is how showed up Tim probably gets himself involved in the podcast. How about this? Isn't there a podcast in the greater art earth's that he's a Harry Potter the weird sisters the weird sisters? So if one of. The weird sisters will reach out to us and agree to be our the real through the Todd the real weird sisters our guide through because I think we could put this on the wheel right now. I'm sure one of them will say, yes. Kiva means. Got mad Akiva needle. We are headed into the wizard. Ing world. Yeah. Everyone said the best time to do. A Harry Potter podcast was the weak. The least important Harry Potter movie came out to indifferent reviews, and nobody showed up, and so I think this is the prime time to talk Harry Potter as opposed to the week. We did the leprechaun podcast says all we brought back the leprechaun it was out and people weren't people so into it. They fast-track the show that's already coming on next month. That was us bring Harry Potter back with this episode. All right before we bring our guests in Cuba. What did you think about the reactions to our last episode the dad know it alls, I think people like started. They people were tweeting saying like, they're going to have kids that we inspired. Oh. Going to. But now like I mean, some of them were high schoolers it was concerning. But people I think people really liked it. Yeah. I think we were kind of or at least I was a little down on people were like, hey because it wasn't funny. It was more informative most of it. But people seem to like it. But a lot of the hype came at of I'm so excited for what has come up on the wheel for next week where episode number eleven of Robin. Akiva need a podcast is going to be about the wizard. Ing world of Harry Potter and kiva, and I are going to learn all about our Potter selves and much more with a great pair of Gaseke. But we've never had to guests on at the same time. We've never had a woman guest. We've never had two guests. You know, this sign barriers here. No. Of course on Seinfeld podcast. We had plenty of women guests, but well by plenty of mean, like at least one at least one I'm trying to we had. I'll get back to you. And if we talked to an actress one time, yes, we've talked to an actress we definitely took to speak to carol-lee. I latch lifer. No, definitely not. No. No, no. But we did speak to I think one of the later season female writers. I don't remember the names of any of the writers. We spoke to the woman that wrote the Seinfeld book to. Oh, yes. Yeah. Jennifer armstrong. Yeah. That's a good point. So yeah. So chock full of women of the hen guests we had over three of them were women. Yeah. Yeah. No. I don't even know if we had ten we did not have any other doesn't camp. All right. But today, we are really going to bump up ratio because we are going to be having to guests of two women guests compared to just the one male guest. We've had on this show as we bring in the real weird sisters Alice and Martha how are you? Hey, happy to be here. Glad that we bump up the ratio for you. Now, very excited for listeners who are familiar with our voices this Martha mouse Alice first of all, but we're very excited to be here to help your your stats with the diversity here. Thank you very much. And I am used to interviewing amazing race contestant. So I I'm a pro at figuring out who is who. And of course. So this is Alice Osler saying and Martha credible. They host the real weird sisters podcast, which is all about Harry Potter. Can you tell us a little bit about the podcast? Yes. I'm actually, rob. It is Cray bull. Just for listener. I was so say it on getting off listen, right? Yeah. Well, you did a good job. Give me five more years. And I'll nail cradle. At that time so start. Yeah. The real weird sisters. We are a Harry Potter podcast. We are regular format is a book club episode. So we do week to week we go one chapter per episode, and we just finished the fifth book. So we've been going for about two and a half years now and each week we discuss one chapter of the Harry Potter series. And then we also do special topics episodes where we do different topics with other guests oftentimes from the RHA p universe. Yes. And how often do you guys put ads we put out episodes every Monday, we never miss a Monday. And then we do all. Yeah. And knock on one. That was maybe we're not done with. Yes. We put them out every Monday. And then we have all of our special topics shows that Martha was just referencing those are kind of periodically. They're not on a schedule. Okay. All right. Akiva, could you set up? What our exercise is going to be today. Yes. So I think mortified analysis are world-class Harry Potter fans with with tremendous knowledge, and you and I have various levels of almost no, Harry Potter knowledge. I think they're really going to explain to us. What's going on? Why they're so into it. And we're gonna play some games figure out. What house we're going to be in a bunch of stuff like that? And maybe by the end will be like a knowledgeable enough to host their own Harry Potter podcasts at some point. All right. Gall heating, dueling, Harry Potter. Will we have a wheel of Harry Potter, topics? Well, they're going to be finished. It sounds like they're five books into a seven-book series. So they might start like when we finished Seinfeld. We did the wheel. Maybe they'll do their own wheel with us. I'm not sure maybe we'll wait like Seinfeld where we'll wait till like twenty five years after the show is over. And then we'll start from the beginning. That's a good idea or we could switch. We'll do like we could do like to people who know nothing bad Harry Potter learning about it. And like when we read the books like you'll be reading it for the first time, and they could let's say they've never seen Seinfeld. Which a lot of people have never seen. We learnt when we did the show that we thought maybe it was little more popular with young people than it is. And they could they could do fill us and you'll be watching Seinfeld for the first time. It's not a bad idea. I think what you guys should do is listen to the real weird, sisters episodes. And then each time you listen to one of our episodes an episode about that. Yeah. But that on the way I'll have either of you not seen Seinfeld yet. I have seen most of Seinfeld and Martha's actually younger than I am so yeah, more impressive. We'll maybe we'll give Martha Seinfeld quiz. And then you which which Seinfeld cast member you are at the end of the episode 'perfect means a Newman one. All right. Real weird sisters. So where are we starting today? Well, we just I think we're curious. And I think a lot of the listeners are what your guys is Harry Potter stories are so like, I know you guys have talked about this in various different locations. But maybe just if we could get like all of your background like, rob. I'm just really curious how you never got into Harry Potter just being such a big phenomenon in Stig, pop culture junkie. You are. Okay. Well, great question. And so I did some research into this. And I said, yeah, why a why did I never get into anything Harry Potter, and you know, in my quick dive into googling about the Harry Potter movie franchise. I realized that the first film came out just after my twenty third birthday, which put me I guess in a weird spot sort of like the furthest away that you could be from enjoying the Harry Potter universe. Where I was. Too old to jump in as sort of like a young person getting into it. And then I was too far away from being a parent where I might be getting into it with my kids. So it just happened to come onto the scene at the exact worst time. I guess books included also which probably came out when I was in college just the furthest away from being something that would appeal to a twenty three year old man without children. Plus, you're like just about to go on survivors. You had other things on your mind. I was still a full year away from it. But by the time the second film was going to drop. Yes. Then I was getting well into my survivor experience did people you remember if people talked about Harry Potter at all when you were on survivor or was that like off everybody's radar. And I'm like, yeah. I think it was all everybody's radar. I want to say the same crossover of those fans that I mean, this is might be kind of maybe misreporting this. But I do feel like that Harry Potter was looked at something. And I don't know if this is a topic that you guys get spicy that. I want to say that that that Dina and potentially Joanna didn't want their kids to read it because it was sacrilege. Yeah. That definitely was a big thing back in the early two thousands, especially when Harry Potter was like at its peak for the most part, that's kind of gone away has the Catholic church reversed its position on Harry Potter them yet. Well, Alice is the librarian. So she's she's the what? What bass I don't know about an official stance from the Catholic church. But I would say like if any time this is probably the time when they would be reversing their stance on it. Because pope Francis has been very progressive. And he's really true changed the position on a lot of things. Exactly. So he probably has a to any bugaboo with Harry Potter in the Jewish faith. I don't think so I don't there's there's a Harry Potter gutter. I saw which is like the Passover prayerbook. And my father is rabbi, and he's read each Harry Potter book, many many times, he's a big Potter one day. He realized that he used to be the young cool teacher in his school. And then like when they realized he was old, and he didn't know what the kids were talking about. And so he's like, oh, they're all taking the Harry Potter. So I'm going to get into them. And then he got way more into with the kids did to the point where it was like incredibly uncall- now knowing care, and now he's like you could talk about Harry Potter, except maybe there's like one kid in every class of fifteen year olds that would even be mildly interested in Potter. So it backfired on him. Because now we could just probably a weird guy. Who likes to Harry Potter in the fifties? But now that always makes you cool. Yeah. We got him on our show. Unlike unlike rob I have read the first six books like I have some Potter knowledge. I'd probably forgot most of it. So somehow that is like almost worse to me. I don't quite understand how you stopped after the first sick. I think I don't know. I had I had a kid between six and seven, and I that was like minutes of my time total. And I think I I wasn't a big fan. I sort of read it because my sister and my dad were into it. I liked it. But I just didn't feel the book seven was so intimidating, and I also think there were a lot of spoilers like right away. I think I was spoiled like immediately on the end of seven. So it's a big commitment to read that book was like how how many pages nine hundred pages. Eight hundred pages. It was a big commitment. My other Harry Potter like thing. I was thinking that today is my sister went on some summer program where you were only allowed to bring like forty pounds of luggage on the airplane. So it it was the day that the goblet of fire. I wanna say came out the fourth book, maybe and. She couldn't bring it. And I went to my mom's school and photocopy the entire book for her. It took me like a whole morning don't tell JK Rowling. So she could page and then throw it in the garbage in like three because she wasn't allowed going to be allowed on the plane with it. So I'd have copied entire Harry Potter book. I would have probably done something similar as well. So. But yeah, I mean, it's interesting that you read the first six because I could see stopping after the first two or I one, but to get all the way through six, and then stop that's just mind blowing the fate of the wizard world wasn't really weighing heavily on your mind. Not really, I mean, I I don't know. I don't want to take Radovic because again like my dad is older than me. And he loves these books. But like, I don't know it just I was never into the mad rubble. Tell you. I'm not into scifi. Now never seen a lot of the famous like badge ical, you know, world other than came with thrones. Like, a really spend no time with any sort of science fiction. I guess game of thrones is true. I want to ask the sort. I wanted to ask the space centers. I wanted to ask the sisters. I've heard some reports that their level of fandom is maybe more than than we realize. I wanted to ask them like I have a source. I won't say who he is. But feeling good. I have you guys. And now I feel like you've passed them off onto us. To us. One of the two sisters got married on Harry Potters birthday purpose on purpose. Yes. On purpose. It was a Thursday on a Thursday. Here's the thing. It was in the summer and like everybody that was coming to the wedding had to. Had to travel anyway. So it wasn't like it was that inconvenient for them. So I'm sure it was a lot cheaper on them on next week's podcast bet this Thursday wedding. Okay. Who was in Montana? Alison, Martha or should I guess, you can guess, okay. I'll guess that. It was Martha. Well, I'm not married, but. Okay. I would have been Ellison Paul as Lison. They got married on. You've had poll on your podcast just anything that. I thought Paul would've wanted to get married on like Karl Lancy owns birthday or something. Yeah. No, actually, it was July thirty first which I happen to know creepy enough that that's pretty close to your first yet. So data almost got married on Harry Potter's. Yeah. Now. Hold on. Was it really just that you know that? Hey, it's a lot cheaper to get married on a Thursday. Let's just go with the Harry Potters birthday and tell people that and not really that. Look, we're saving a lot of money on this wedding. Well, it was a combination. I always thought like if I had always thought July thirty first it'd be an awesome day to get married because it'd be super easy to remember. I love Harry Potter people say that the people forget their anniversaries like I got married or maturity, I've never forgotten which it was. Yeah. That's true. But I just thought okay perfect day. And was like, you know, we were looking to get married that particular year, and I was like, well, it's a Thursday. And then I kind of started looking at stuff, and there was a lot of discounts like the venue was about half price. So it was perfect and you guys live in Montana. Right. So like yes was a a Thursday in Montana. I'm sure I'm sure you're like friends who live on the coast were absolutely delighted. Exactly. This wedding. Rub. My hands a lot more casual than the east coast is so I think like really all about Montana fans. I don't think people are not fans all our Montana friends. I don't think that they were like that weirded out by the Thursday wedding. But like our east coast relatives definitely thought it was weird. But the thing was like they were already making a trip out to Montana. They weren't to just come for a weekend because it was summer, and they were they wanted to plan their Montana getaway around the wedding. So having known the Thursday wasn't really that much of an inconvenience rub. The other thing I heard is that one of the sisters. Maybe both has read the first book one hundred times is that true. So it's it's an estimate. So I can't one hundred times I would say I like I said that's an estimate and Martha's it's got to be really close to I'm at like forty. I'm a lot younger than Alice and she read when she was reading the first book over and over again, not all the books were out. So that was all she was reading there were like three books out. So I could read them all the time and very quickly on also I was a kid with just like unlimited time. So I hadn't watched TV growing up. So yeah, it was also. So it was just the perfect storm for me to just read Harry Potter constantly. Wow. That's impressive. Impressive or sad, depending how you look at it. But. I also jump in and say that I am not a anti pot tight. Maybe I'm being painted as somebody who was anti Potter. I will I think at some point when my kids are old enough. I will go through it. But I just as a grown adult without children. It was never something that was high on my to do list. Right. Well, I think it's never too late to get into Harry Potter. We're not here to point fingers at you, actually, what we wanna do is try to show you like, what's so great about Harry Potter. And I think one of the things that's so fun about Harry Potter is just like all of the jokes that you can have from it and just all of the characters that really stick with you. So we're just going to try to like show, you some of those aspects it's not something to feel ashamed of that. You haven't read we're not here to shame. You know, definitely not we understand don't worry about like criticize against or making fun of it in any way. Because that's what we do too. So right. I'm definitely not going to read it more than once. If I ever read it though. You might just completely transformed into a powder fan. It is a book that has brought so many people who were non-readers to become readers. So never say, never, rob. Because you maybe you aren't a big reader, but this book could turn you into it. Maybe. Have you there have you seen the movies or any of the movies? My my dad dragged me to the first movie heat. My dad is again, he's a rabbit. He's not really a movie goer TV watcher. But because he's such a Potter fan. He needed to go like the first weekend. He hadn't been to a movie since the eighties. When the first Harry Potter came out in the theater with Amy and he's been to been to he doesn't go to movies, but he's been to like nine or ten movies since every JK Rowling like he sees that Potter movies, but he's not still not into a non Potter movie since the eighties. Wow. Like, I don't want to get him arrested here. But he took like our neighbor's kid just like anyone who will go with him like because he didn't want to go alone. But like he will go with he will go with he will go with anybody like to see Harry. And like my sister didn't comedy went with her the next day. Like, you see seen these a couple of times he's very into into the HP. That's awesome. I like the sound of your dad me too. I did I told my dad to send me over a list of ten like really hard Harry Potter questions that I could ask the sisters. But I guess if you listen to last week's podcast, you know, he doesn't love me, or at least I'm not as favorite child we've been definitively. So he did not respond. I mean, he said, okay. But there's no so. Better because I don't. Put on the spot like that. As for me. No, I have not seen any of the films. And it may surprise you to know that I think most of my Harry Potter knowledge has come from several years of celebrity apprentice themed challenges where the celebrities were forced to design exhibits based on the wizard. Ing world of Harry Potter exhibits at the universal theme parks, and then judged by members of the Trump corporation dating back to even a podcast. I did back in twenty ten called the wizard world of rod Blagojevich. Wow. The practice. Now that was a piece of Harry Potter trivia. I was not aware of. Spoiler alert. He got fired. Jail rav. Well, he got. The first the first mixing of the Trump corporation in politics was rod Blagojevich was a celebrity apprentice contestant that is very interesting. Well, that actually it's sort of just like you talking about what, you know, about Harry Potter sort of brings us into one of our first ideas for a game that we had if you guys are up for it. Okay. Rob. We were just we thought it would be cut a fun. If we I don't know if we want to do this with a time limit or not. But we thought it would be fun. If you tried to list, just as many, Harry Potter characters and terms and concepts as you can think of okay, just kind of off the cuff. Let's see what you are at like, what is your knowledge of Harry Potter coming into this podcast. We thought kiva could assist. But if you've read all six books, I don't know that you can like a question or two like, obviously, I know like. The the main half dozen or characters. So so you want me to do you want to put like a ninety seconds on the clock, and I will do some sort of Harry Potter of brain dump mind map. Yes. Okay. Exactly. Ninety seconds, however, long you think would be good. All right. Is there a Harry Potter word for what I'm about to do? Probably. All right. All right. Okay. It'll be wells. All right. So I know that there is a guy that is named Dumbledore. Okay. They drink butter beer too. His girlfriend named her mining. We'll give you that a girl named her mind. He didn't go to Hogwarts. Yes. The plays plays some crazy game. I can't remember what it what it's called. There's a there's a bad guy that they don't they don't speak of that. I can't remember his name. You said that they don't speak of him. We could give you a point for that. Because that's the thing because they don't call him by his name. That's that's the thing. Yeah. Rob just doesn't want to speak of him. I just want to speak of him. I want to say that there is that there's a wizard Gandalf, but that's from that's from Lord of the rings. True. But that won't get your point. It's written by J K Rowling. Yes. That's the thing though. It's pronounced rolling. Whatever. And your point. I'm trying to think of. Go to the wizard. Wizards is like a a big spider. I think there is a big there's a big spider in that one. Not one and he dies. Right. He does spider dice, Harry Potter die. Don't say wrong. I'm not going to if I'm right or wrong on that. And is my time up yet. You have ten seconds. Let's see this. What is that game called if the catch the snitch? Okay, snitch is good. Yeah. But I don't think you, rob. Could you quit quidditch? Got nine nine point. There was there was a guy that was on the short lived SCI fi show called opposite worlds that played. We did in real life. Okay. Once he the snitch when when they play quidditch and real there's a person is the snitch. His college. You got nine that's like one pretend seconds. It's pretty good. I mean. Yeah. And it's kind of funny, which ones you happen to know. And which ones you did end at which one is you like kind of had false information about all right? No spoilers those spoilers. Rob. I wanted to say I do think it's good. You haven't seen the movies because when you go in and you get to read the books, it's going to be much better that way, you won't have any of this. I mean, you might know a couple of things it doesn't sound like, you know, that much fact it'd be fair if I get into it with my kids, I'll probably watch the movies with them and not, you know, read all the got a lot of podcasts. That's a lot of book reading they were going to audio books and audiobooks are really good. So that could be something to consider. How many hours guys are they? Probably fifteen for the earlier ones and then to like thirty or forty. I'm not getting into that. Right. Nothing that's important for people to know about us who who are not familiar with our Harry Potter phantom, as we are not Harry Potter movie fans, really at all, oh, we are huge book fan. So when you say, rob that you are probably going to watch movies that is a little bit offensive. Shame inducing for us. Yes. Here's the thing. Like, I can we have enjoyment out of the movie, we do like them. And obviously we've seen them a lot. But the books are just in their own class, and they're just far superior. So it's the movies are as shut up. Tim would be like he loves to tell us books are in the movies are two different things, and they are. But that's the problem like the movies really take the books, and they they leave out alongside off of it. It really just not at the same level. Okay. All right game of thrones. Where everyone knows the shows better than the books. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. So that kind of brings us into our next question for you guys, which is just what are your general impressions of Harry Potter slash like, Harry Potter fans in general, like do Harry Potter fans, maybe annoy you or like what what what is your general impression of the Harry Potter fan community key of any stereotypes of the Harry Potter fan base. I don't have any stereotypes besides the fact that just based on who wanted to did you notice did you guys notice a lot of people were trying to steal your throne for this. A lot of people are coming. For the for the I'm trying to think of the Harry Potter reference? But I don't remember any is there a throne. Premiums are around your want people coming for your want. I want. Get what I've noticed is everyone who watches everyone who on my feed like talks Harry Potter on regular basis, it skews female more than most other fan bases. That's one thing. I noticed could be totally wrong. But it seems like that. But maybe it's a small sample size. The other thing I I notice this JK Rowling tweets way too much. She's a billionaire. Twitter ever. It's insane. Yeah. Rob what do you do? I took count her money like just Symantec can have fun. And that's Aaron that's Twitter's Twitter's for people who aren't billionaires if you're a billionaire, you shouldn't there's not one billionaire who who is even competent on Twitter all from Elon Musk on them. Like, you should not doing things on Twitter common folk yet, but he's on a billionaire. He's just like a regular rich guy. Yeah. I never see him. But I'm sure his accounts things to like every you can't you can't relate to like the common. Meaning folks, if you're if you have a billion dollars Twitter's for for for I hear you I hear you very it's probably very rich and the and the very poor. I think it's a good like originally it should be. No, no, it should be for everyone except the one percent of the one percent. But I think if you are J K Rowling rolling Jikei rolling. Real tricky on that if you're J k, and you know, you have so you have so much money than your life is boring, and if you can sort of like again to Twitter feud with Trump, that's like an exciting day, then I she likes it. Yeah. I guess, but she should be above. I have to agree to a certain extent with you, Akiva, like, I think that sticky rolling like I I love her obviously like she's one of my top heroes in life. She's an amazing person. But sometimes on Twitter, I'm like, okay. That's been tweeting a lot. So I see what your phone away. I'm sure if you're not a Harry Potter fan. It's probably worse. So I get what you're what you're saying there. She doesn't bother me. They're also all about Brexit. She doesn't wear out of British. Really, I'll ticks that's very rich. She's got fourteen million flowers like twelve of them from England. But she only English Celtics. All I know about British politics is from JK Rollings Twitter. So maybe that's a good thing. She wrote Brexit or anti Brexit, very anti very anti suggest it then she's killing you on site. Yes. Everyone who's in jar just to go back to your idea about the fan base, skewing female, Akiva. I think that that actually is accurate among survivor fans. That's kind of like which seems to be like the getting very niche, Harry Potter fans who are also survivor fans, I feel like most of them are female or like a majority of them are female. But I don't know if that's necessarily Representative of the Harry Potter fan base in general, I feel like the Harry Potter fan base is going to be pretty evenly split male female. But I think that the cool thing is that I do think that it might have more female sans than a lot of other fan fans. Do like, you know, Star Wars, I think would be more of a male fan base than Harry Potter totally. This is totally like me just making stuff up. So I don't really know. But I think I feel like there is a little bit more of an even split flits, Harry Potter, my other my other Harry Potter opinion. Guys, is that I the quidditch makes no sense like as hordes fan really really threw me off because rob. The rules of quidditch are like there's two different scoring methods. You could get the flopper is what are they called the ten points things called quavo. The quavos for it. And you get ten points per quality. It's like soccer. But then there's like a dragon if you catch the drag, and then you win automatically soccer. But if you've got a goal like the other team died. Then you could get you. Then you could get fifty points for catching the snitch and the game ends when you catch us niche. So you have to be losing in an absolute like annihilation blowout to write for anything other than this niche, the matter which happens warm issue. It was totally look at the quidditch World Cup, which I'd look at. Yeah. No. If you have a really good chasers. They're the ones who score the points in quidditch. If you've got really good chasers. Then you might be able to make up for the other team catching the snitch. But usually that doesn't happen. Yeah. It was the game was clearly designed rob by someone who does not follow sports and never watch. Right. It would not have been possible for someone who was even like a casual fan of any single sport to think of this game because it's so poorly designed okay? Yeah. Well, you sound like a big muggle when you say that kiva, it's true. We don't. Either you read what if a half court shot in the NBA ended the game and gave you thousand points. That's quidditch it it would be like one hundred fifty jen's play the patriots. Then there's like some other thing going on where you know, firemen. Everyone's chasing, some smart fuel. Bill Belichick's flag from his sock. Win the game. Okay. So what are we going to get into next? So we do have another game prepared her. And then the title of this game is Potter or Nodar? Ooh. So we came up with that thought that was pretty good. And we just thought like rob you can try to answer. And then if you don't get get the right answer, then Akiva can help you steal has more more of a knowledge base on this. So basically, the title says it all Potter or Nodar, meaning is this in Harry Potter or not? So each question is going to ask which is not part of the Harry Potter universe, and we'll have multiple choice. So then you can identify which one is not okay. Number category. There's a lot less math involved with this game than there is in twitch. So hopefully, we'll be able to keep hopefully, hopefully, it's a low Barda clear. So are you ready for the first question? I'm ready. Okay. Number one who is not one of Harry's friends at school. Her minding Grainger be Neville Longbottom. See Dudley d'ors -ly de shameless Finnegan. Okay. Well, I know her mind is a friend because I hear those names real quick one more time her minding, Grainger, never Longbottom, doubly, d'ors Lii and shameless Finnegan. Okay. Longbottom sounds pretty fake. I'll go with B K, Akiva for the steel. Dudley. Firstly is is a muggle. He that's his that's his uncle is cousin or whatever. Yeah. Deadly terry's. Cousin and definitely not friends. He is not nice to such a trick question. You took clings from like, let me I'll give you the names of four NFL players, which which one is retired. So they should be able to get it rolling. Don't take. I would get that. So I'd probably be at about a lot one should be. What's this? This is the junior Senator from Delaware. Yeah. Well, I want these to be believable that was that was kind of easy too hard. Harry lake. Yeah. I was trying to figure out which one was a fake name. Okay. Okay. Well, never Longbottom. It sounds like a fake name. But it is a real character. Harry Potter would never be friends with a long bottom. I should've known that Harry Potter is not actually that cool. So. He's kind of a door himself area. You really only has like two close friends at school. So yeah, I can relate. Two more than ends at school. In this category. Okay. What's next question? You ready for the next one house? All right. The next one is which of the following is not a magical creature in the Harry Potter universe. A centaur. Be dragon sea boat treacle de Jabber walkie. I'll say that. I know I've heard Jabber walkie from Alice in wonderland. So I will say d. You are correct. Good job on one for two. That was another. That was the thing. That's not from Harry Potter that was that made sense to me also have to listen to the whole question wrong. Whether or not it's in every fodder. Yes. Okay. Would you have gotten that one? Akiva. Yeah. I mean, I didn't I knew Jabber walkie wasn't. But I also didn't know a couple of the other ones. So. Oh, treacle is the other one that is a little bit more out there that one has come to come to power a little bit more with the new fantastic beasts movies. A lot of people. Will remember the little it kind of looks like a great kind of? Yeah. It's a little like stick bug thing. Yeah. And that's a boat troubled. So just FYI. I. But the one thing I wanted to point out with that question is that Harry, one of the cool things about Harry Potter is that it has all different kinds of magical creatures like from from Asala G and fairy tales, and actually almost every magical creature. You can sink of is in Harry Potter in some way or another question was really hard for us to right? Okay. Jabra walkie was like the only thing we could come up with. Okay. Ready for number three s who is not a professor at Hogwarts. Professor mcgonagall be professor sprout. See professor snake de professor of law kart. No, no. A said I'm going to say, I there's actually an E on this to by choices. Yes. Also, professor in love good. Okay. I know that this Snaith is something is something else. So I'll say that professor snake is my guess. Okay. You want to steal. Luna love good. I know snake by new I don't know sprout. So I'm familiar with sprout. Is that right? Sarney's also wrong on love. Good is not a professor just shame. You'll your questions. He doesn't know. What's running? This is what I'm talking about. Here's what renewed cue though, he thought that we were putting in nape as as the red herring. But snake really is a professor. I would have asked that question the other way, and I would have said. Who is the professor, and then rob would have been like, oh, I've heard of state. Okay. Well, this is not his not Potter or pot or Nodar. So we need a Harry or or too scary. And we can. One more of these questions. Okay. We're we're in guys. Yeah. This is probably the easiest one. We'll see. Okay. So we thought maybe we tie this into a phantom that you actually do know some stuff about which of the following game of thrones actors has not appeared in the Harry Potter films. And if you want me to tell you who the game, you probably know. But if you want me to tell you who they play can do that listeners would appreciate that. Okay. So a is David Bradley he plays. Walter fray game of thrones being Natalia tenor. She is Austria in gaming zone. See Michelle Fairley who is Catlin stark or d eight and Gillan who plays little finger. Okay. So good question. I will say that they all could be in there. I will go with Catlin stark. And if you want to try to no, I don't know. I don't know the actor. Well, actually this. This one is a little bit interested in Catlin's start that actress is in the Harry Potter movies. She plays. Her Miami's mom in the seventh books or a really it's tiny seats three scene. But she is in there in the correct answer was d eight dealing ninety Mary Potter movies. Yeah. Sounds in the wire. Yes account. Close. That's what Paul said to actually. Okay. All right. All right. What else do you have for us? I we're ready for the sorting. How when you guys we're ready people are pumped up for the sorting hat. I think that's kind of the main attraction of this shown. We definitely want to give it plenty of time here. What we thought we going to goes? Well, I think that the questions that you're going to get asked in a random order. So I don't think you're going to have the same questions at the same time. We'll be the only problem. Well, it's not necessarily that. They're in a random order. But it's like the question that you ask are the answer for the previous question. Yes. Effects the next question. Exactly. So yeah. Yeah. So what we thought we should start with though is just if we give you guys the traits of houses without necessarily telling you what the houses are, and then you can say, which one you think you identify with the most before you take the test. I won't tell you which one you've self identified as okay? So then you'll get your e you'll get your your actual response after you like when you take the quiz, and then we'll come back, and we'll say if if you matched up or not okay does that sound good. Okay. So house one courageous and chivalrous are the two two traits. That are most identified with me. Yeah. Yeah. No question. How to intelligent and creative k house three is hard working and loyal. And house four ambitious and resourceful who so maybe also save who you think the other one is going to identify like agree with what the other one says. Okay. What's the third one again, hard working and loyal? I think rob is hard working and loyal. What's be? I think I'm none of them. But if I had the guests, what's be intelligent and creative. I mean, that's not I I'm not chivalrous. That's absurd. It's rule that one I'm not amount of bishops you could rule that out. So I'm going to have to go with that. Even though maybe I'm neither that's still like less ridiculous than some of the other ones. So I'm going to. Yeah. Okay. See I would say that a kiva is hard working and loyal. He does. I mean, it's like the middle of the night. He's doing a podcast events. You know that he is very loyal, and that's why all of his friends wives don't like him because that he is very loyal to his friend and not to the white true. That's true. Is that why why does and what my life why my wife like me because you're loyal to your friends, by the way, she says. Yeah. That's a good point. Someone said a muggle that I'm none of them that I'm just a muggle. Well, I've thought an option in the sorting hat quiz. So they should be throwing you out. Okay. You know, what a muggle is you self identify. No, I did not self identify. I don't know what a muggle is the muggle is bad mouth, the non-magical people. They're not bad basic. Yeah. Luckily, not match unless you guys unless you guys are like holding out on information on us as far as I know all four of us are muggles sadly official efficiently like technically. So because Harry Potter takes place in our regular world there. They have words for like, the people who are non matched call and that in British English that word is is muggle. Okay. Do you want to hear the traits again, rob what is being again intelligent identify as intelligent? I did guys and rob immediately sent narrow not intelligent. You're. I I see. Am Bishop and resourceful. Okay. All right. Well, you've now self identified we're not going to reveal what you gonna find. As until after you've taken the quizzes. Have you both set up pot Amora council? We're both on Potter more dot com were less. Spam. Email for the rest of our lives. Yeah. I I don't think you've actually get that much from Potter. Mario who he's on the front page. That's from because I know him from he's on the Walking Dead. Now this guy. Let's go to I don't know this guy with the beard. Dan, Fogler is in fantastic beasts, okay? Is he's like he's on. He's actually a no Madge, which is the American English word for Michael new test member on the Walking Dead here. One time to be Dan Fogler. The Dan Fogler his upon us. Join the Hogwarts house. I you want you want to be the first one sorted out. The mailing list is it. No. So maybe we better. Explain what the houses are. I'm sure you guys have heard a lot about. I know a you know, what they are. But rob what do, you know much about the houses at all? Just like what what it is. Like what the house system recently? I took a twenty three and me own kit and reveals then what your DNA is. Right. Well, the Twenty-three it'd be does. Sorting hat is more. It's not necessarily based on jeans. Although it often does run in families. It's determined by the sorting hat, which is all knowing magical hat that is sent to and can see into your brain. And it can determine which traits you value, the most or that you demonstrate the most, and it's going to be the people the house that you're sort of into the people that you're going to spend time with while you're at Hogwarts student. Yes. So you get sorted on your very first day at school and from then on out, you do like, you earn points for your house or like the quidditch teams, for example, our for their houses, and so they strongly identify with whatever house their in house dormitories all their houses, go to school or go to classes, together and everything. Okay. So it determines a lot. And what we've found interesting about it is that an a lot of. People. I think have really glommed onto this theory. Because it really does do a good job of kind of summing up everybody that you meet in the world like there are sometimes people where it's hard to place them. But generally speaking, it's pretty easy to say like, oh that person is awful puff or that person is a Griffin door or whatever house. And so that's something that we do on our show a lot actually is we take shows or other phantoms, and we try to sort the characters in those shows into houses based on what we think are there traits. Okay. So anyway, that's that's I think why people have been curious to know, rob, white what house you're in a coin dealers. There's relation already. So our out is this a officially sanctioned quizzed by JK rolling, or is this kind of like a BuzzFeed type thing, which golden girl or you. This is written by k rolling, or at least it's sanctioned by her. This is her website that she created after after the seventh book and she wanted to do something. It wasn't really quite the success that she thought of cash, rob. And she was tweeted out examined to give money tweeting of on. She just created a website on and. Yes, Potter more. I think it's most well known for having the official sorting hat quiz. Okay. That's it's definitely this is this is the real sorting half that you're about how do we get started? This is an Potter more dot com. If everyone's to play along and find out what house they are living in. And so once you've made an account, it should be the first thing. That's there. Find out your Hogwarts houses. Probably what it says. Okay. Okay. The weird thing about Potter more. Is that when it first started? It was like this huge reveal what JK Rollings new project was going to be. And she unveiled it with this video and everybody like wanted to be one of the first people to have an account on Potter more. And you had you got like a magic name as your user name. And it was supposed to be really exciting. You're supposed to like walk through Hogwarts at stuff like inner Ehrlich, virtually and didn't really take off to that that degree that. She was hoping for the same thing happened with rod Blagojevich when he. East his big, Harry Potter exhibit, some very similar. And here's the thing. People are they everybody's trying to recreate Harry Potter it really just so far. It has not been done. Okay. Are we looking for sorting hat, or sorting ceremony? Probably sorting ceremony through ceremony. Okay. Begin the experience. Like who's going kiva were me either? Two. Okay. All right, Akiva. Well, why don't you kick things off kickoff the festivities? Okay. So I'm clicking begin the experience dawn or dusk. And I choose. Dusk. I'm a night guy. Right. What is this? What you like more or which are you? Oh, yeah. Rob voice. Even the choice. Would I rather? Invent a potion that would guarantee me love or glory. Ooh. Oh, there's three oh this bolt. Make sure your love. Wisdom, though, don't need to be a power. Love. So it's love glory glory. All right, then they have a troll has gone beserk and the headmaster studied high wards, it's about the smash crush and tear apart several irreplaceable items and treasures in which order would you rescue? These objects from the trolls club if you could like dub. Yeah. Yeah. Tim versus well. You know, they wrote dub is going to be in the brand steal of all of the characters. You're aware of that. Right. No question. No question at teed up is up over five hundred dollars. We've really truly created a monster. Beserk study have you guys done that podcast yet? I think I'm gonna go a slither at. But I think he's. I think he's Lutheran. I'm sure he's just said we somehow we're covering Harry Potter before avatar. Have you sorted all the avatar characters got. No, I haven't even seen ATar which teamed up like. Yes. Akiva, where are you? At one of the things is student records going back one thousand years. So I'm not saving that. I this is the other options are hand written books that are thousand years old. I'm going to I'm going to select a perfectly perfected cure for dragon pox because that would make me a hero. Okay. If you could have any power, which would I choose the power to read minds or the power of invisibility when I was a kid. I really wanted to to be invisible. We don't have to get into that nap power of superhuman strength. Power speak to animals. No. If I had the power, I would not use it the power to change the past. Okay. Or the power to change your appearance of will. Yeah. May let's give me a hairline select. Yeah. Okay. Yes. If I was attending Hogwarts which pet would I choose to take with a tabby cat now. That's a hard. No, Siamese cat ginger cat. I don't know. There's these cats. Black cat, white cat. Powell a screech out Zack Marcel Brownell snowy owl or an so it's just oh a common toad. He wants an average Nodar. Jack, towed. These are just Harry Potter related things. A harlequin toad three toed. Tree toad. Yeah. That's funny. Three toed. Tree toad. Very practical, which which road tempts me the most the wide sunny grassy lane. Is there a road in my house, the narrow dark lantern lit alley? The twisting leaf-strewn path through the woods or the Kabul street lined with ancient buildings. All right, fine. We'll go with cobbled street. I liked the word cobbled. It's a good word or boxes are placed before me. There's only a couple more, right? Four by four you, which would I try to open a tortoiseshell box embellished with gold in which some small creature is squeaking. I squeaked when I said squeaking flaming jet flocks with a silver locket key marked with a mysterious ruin that, you know, to be the Mark of Merlin wise Merlyn in all magic. This around for a lot of influence, and what about the small pewter box unassuming plane with a scratch scratch message upon it that reads, I only open for the worthy. I'm going to go with that one. Do I choose black or white lack? Okay. Do you guys want to what I got sorted into? Right one. You think you got the right one? Yeah. How about this? Why does not let me go? And then I won't be influenced by a key is, okay. Yeah. Sure. That sounds good. Okay. Although you won't know what to be influenced by because you don't know what. Most those me. No, I think welfare negative connotation associated with some of rob you should just yell for it. Okay. All right for it. All right questions keep too because. Okay. So now, I shouldn't begin my quiz, right? Yes. I have moon or stars. Ago with stars the moon moon is overrated. Shoot for the moon giving the choice would you rather? Invent a potion that would guarantee you love I mean. On the nose glory, wisdom or power. Boy, I feel like that with power comes glory like I kind of feel like with glory, you could get glory. But then you're also have like ruin I feel like that with power you can get wisdom and glory and love so I feel like tower would be the right answer there. Okay. All right late at night walking down the street. You hear a peculiar cry that you believe to have a magical source? Do you proceed with caution keeping one hand concealed on your conceals one eye out for a disturbance draw your wants to try to discover the source of the noise. Roy your wand in stand your ground withdraw into the shadows to await developments while a mentally reviewing the most appropriate defensive and offense of spells. Should trouble occur is like hiding. I guess. Yeah. Boy, I don't know. This is a very complicated question. I definitely I don't want to know what the noise is. I think I just want to get out of it. There's no option just to run away. I'm walking down the street on himself. So I guess I would probably either hide or. I guess stand stand. My proceed with caution keeping one hand on my concealed wand and deny out for any disturbance could choice. Okay. The safe choices you've entered an enchanted garden. What would you be most curious to examine I there is a silver leafed tree bearing golden apples. That is a pass the fat red zone stools that appear to be talking to each other. No way the bubbling pool in the depths of which something is swirling. The statue of an old wizard with no, Nope. Nope. Nope. No, no, no. You're not gonna guess boom. We're not going to beat the swirling pool. Okay. If you were attending Hogwarts, which would you choose to take with you a tabby cat pass? Just a bunch of different kinds of a bunch of different types out. Siamese cat ginger cat. No. I'm not taking a cat a black cat, white cat tawny? Owl. Screech l Brown Al snowy L bar like barn. Does barn. Al. Meaning would stay in the barn. Well, here's the thing about the owls. So the cool thing about having an Alice that they will take your mail for you deliver mail. You should've told me that beforehand. I didn't know you get you get your cat. Wow. All magic. But but you could have your own owl. And they all do stay in the outlawry. So you don't have to stay in your dormitory with picking what is my favorite color. Al pretty much screeching sound below. I don't want. I can't I can't podcast with a screech owl around. Tony owls tawny contain. She was on Seinfeld. That's exactly what it's like. Whoa. Okay. I will go with Tony Al doesn't have the may twenty dollars. I think a snowy L I'll go with the barn. Owl. Keep keep that ally. In the barn. Okay. If you're gonna have the power, which would you choose power to read minds pass on that one. The Twitter the power of visibility. Now. I already know the answer to this one. I want the power to change appearance at will both of you guys for that one. No four why. That's it. I don't know much rather be able to change my appearance of will then to be invisible visible not so useful anymore. You want to improve my marriage stat change, my appearance will don't you think becoming invisible could help that to know why would become invisible improve my marriage that my wife can see me. Good for my marriage often ask I'm invisible. I mean, I'll up stairs all day. I'm practically active green. Okay. Which of the following define most difficult to deal with hunger. Food is overrated. I've heard cold. I don't like cold. I'll tell you that right now loneliness. No, definitely not. That's fine, boredom. Never been bored. Once in my life being ignored. I don't like that. But I'm used to it. So I will say hold is the worst. It's why I didn't pick that. Yes. No. We Al I felt like that that could be the weather. Okay, left or right. Okay. Well, I'll go right. All right. All right. All right. I'm locked in lockdown. K? Rob is locked in his locked. We'll tell you. I what you to self identified as we'll see how accurate you were Akiva, youself identified as a raven claw. Oh, rob identified you as a half. Okay. And then rob you identified as slither in and Akiva identified you as awful puff. Okay. Do you guys know what we are now? But before we even revealed the results, not based on your we don't know like what the formula reaching or anything just based like life. I I would have guessed actually raven cloth for both of you interesting. I think I would have to although now based on hearing result. I wouldn't be surprised if you guys had gotten slithering. Yeah. Especially akiva. Boy boy. Okay. All right, Akiva. So our our Harry Potter experts right about you know, I am a Griffin door. Oh one side. Yeah. Akiva, apparently, you are courageous chivalrous. Yeah. Maybe maybe I shouldn't I should have picked an apple or something. Towed him over the edge for being chivalrous. I guess that. A lot of your answers were very slithering like to me by this. I I'm a slithering. I don't think I even care enough to be weather and very calculating. I would have picked you as intelligent and creative. But I feel like when you didn't pick wisdom that kind of thing that's going to immediately get you off off that track toward raid bed for the podcast. But I think there should be like more questions. I think there should be like one hundred questions hundred questions well here people really want to know what house. They are rob because it really reduces any chance. Well next week. We'll get Myers Briggs. Quiz Myers, Briggs pottery and questions with that one. You can take you you can find the extended Potter more version because like I do notice you've got different questions than each other. And it's like Rob's questions. You didn't get any of those ones, Akiva. So you can sign the actual Potter more quiz that has all available questions. And then well, then give you your like percentage breakdown of each house that you belong in. And maybe you'll get a different result. If you if you're really interested in doing that. But I do agree wouldn't be the best for format for podcasting with so rob what are you? Okay. I. A from a little house, and we call ourselves Hof all puff. I dunno. Okay. So what what Akiva identified, you know? Rub Mike is awful puff like Mike Lewis is like the is like the when people want to give an example of a hovel puff. It's Mike blue. Oh, actually, no team identifies as Griffin door shut up. Tim is a helpful. Oh, no. Although these really slithers actually. Here's the thing. There's a lot of traits in each of these houses that you can maybe identify slightly with one and slightly with another. So a lot of it does come down to what you most value. But so you, rob. I could see the huddle puffs because you are very hard-working. I mean, we all know me podcast you put out. So that does make sense as that, you know, very industrious. That's a good thing. But I probably would have said he I probably would've said slither in our or raven cloth for you as well. So anyway, we we did come up with a couple of examples for each house survivor contestants that would fit into houses to kind of have a good idea of what like company you're in. Are you guys survivor that? Okay, nurse. Yeah. Or no, not actually owners mostly winner. Yeah. Mostly winners. Okay. So Griffin door. Akiva, your house. We have identified Colby, Ethan. Denise and Stephanie LeGras, Denise Stapley. This stapley. Yes. Okay. Okay. A lot of people have plenty to do with. Sure. Common with Colby. Rob your house, helpful puff your at your in. Great company got Tino s in the Sepah. And woo all like me. I'll with teen. Other is a case for her to be in slithering. Well, and the interesting thing we don't have to go too far down this rabbit hole. But playing a like diff you can play a different type of game and survivor, then maybe like a person you are in terms like a lot of people a lot of successful survivor. Contestants play us the run game, but aren't necessarily slither ends in their day to day life. This the apart that Paul did. No. Actually, he doesn't. He doesn't know the houses to well. Yes. He does. He so he didn't do this. But we have talked about these lot on the former the tribe podcast. Yes. We did some sorting hats on their of the various the various survivor contested. So that's where we got kind of some of these ideas from. Yeah. But yeah, Paul has influenced us into watching a lot of survivor as well. So yeah, you guys didn't get slayed. So then or? Raven Cobb at for solar and examples we have Russell Richard hatch and Sandra, okay? Slithered is kind of known as being like the house of the bad guys in in Harry Potter. But one interesting thing for you guys to know is that within the fandom tons of people identify slither in and are very proud of it on it's not necessarily a bad thing in the fandom. It's just more of like that happens to be where all the bad guys were in the series. Okay. And then we have a raven claw, which we had identified as you'll Sophie and Steven being in raven cau-. That's the intelligent and creative house. Okay. So anyhow, what were you guys is thoughts about doing that quiz? Did you enjoy it? Yeah. It's it's good to know. I like thinking about the different magical powers that I could have there's no difference in houses for what powers all really. But I didn't like when I had to get a pet. Yeah. I don't like animals, then you'd probably be a slithering though. Yeah. That should be an option. Actually, that's a good point. And that's one thing that probably would get you away from hustle puff puff is generally pretty carrying towards animals. Oh, yeah. Okay. I do think I think like don't you have a secondary house. I asked my dad what house he was before. And it was almost like if I ask them like like, what our grandparents names worth something. Like he was so. He's like, well, obviously, I'm a hustle Paul like. My second house, and then he named they'd be like, raven claw. I'm like you have a second like listen. A lot of secondary houses. Like for me. I'm a Griffin door with helpful puff rising. That's not actually -nology, and then I can identify as raven claw with slither and being my secondary house. Oh, yeah. So the interesting thing too with the sorting hat is that the sorting hat does take your choice into consideration. If you get up so much, this sorting hat quiz that you just took the factual sorta great in her Potter, if if you've got the sorting hat on your head, and you're kind of tugging between two it oftentimes will consider like what you would think would like it. So I don't want to give any any spoilers here. But it will take into account what you value the most. And that kind of if you're leaning towards one house, and that's one of the two that this litter and is between them the slither earth. Nordic the sorting hat will probably listen to you. So it's a little interesting piece of information. All right. So now, we know what our houses are what else are we doing in the wizard in world. So we're we're going to have your take the second quiz that's on Qatar more, which is the patrol us quiz was similar to the sorting. Hajek rolling created this quiz on Potter more. As a very like, this is only. The on poverty more. You can't do this anywhere else as the official patrols quiz, and there's hundreds of options apparently of things you can get for this. It's not like the four houses. So kiva. Do you? Remember, what a patrol us is. No, I've got no I never seen patrol patrol this allows creators to be able to create whatever they want and allows people to support them on a project basis and week when we could not make rod as a podcast. Call the patroness Ackley. And that actually kind of makes sense because what if Trump is a guardian of you and it protects you so it kind of makes sense with the on your patrons. Maybe are your patrol. But basically what they are in Harry Potter. There's these creatures called demento ours. And they're these these kind of like race like things they're kind of like the ring rates in Lord of the rings. But they their goal is to suck the happiness out of the air. And eventually, they could suck your soul out. You can make a patrol us using magic. And that. The mentor. It will banish the mentor, and depending on your character. And what you've Allieu and everything will take the form of an animal for animals. So I don't like the people without avatars in the comment section. Yeah. If you've seen the movie, CoCo Pixar sort of a similar concept where you have this like spirit guide. That's like with you. It's like, you're a personification as an animal. Okay. So rob I doesn't sound like either of you is too excited about animals, but do you have any idea of ETA, my lover's? We don't have time for animals in our lives as we love them so much that we realize that we it's hard to take care of them. This'll be perfect because you don't actually have to really care for the patrol comes around when you need it. So what kind of animal do you guys? Would you pick for your patrol us? If you could choose sorta like, what's your spirit animal? Yeah. I'm like e you're looking donkey. Doc for noticing against the more like a I think I'm most donkey like. Perfect. And then what about you? Rob. I don't know if you don't know we can just find out what you is. Let's just find out maybe something like a fish. Okay. Pretty fish like again, you don't have to care for the patrol so have to easy to care for. 'cause it's. We take this quiz together. Same thing. I could just try to take them. And then just kind of go back and forth. I understand why just patrol was crashing your computer. This is very resource in intensive. Yeah. Much more than the than the which has we rob you click the begin on it. I've clicked begin. Now. That's like a roller coaster on. Yes. Says relax think of your happiest memory. That was doing a podcast with gosh. What glaring, Akiva? Discover dance what I have to click on something or time sensitive so does too slowly. Discover Dan I was too slow. You must have to you have to think of the next one's going to be shine glitter or glow okay shining. Neither I picked shine glitter or glow. No. I got let's start again because I leave later Gorn. Oh, I don't like any of these things. I just looked time on that one breath started doing too much time run out they make you do it again. So it's jokes on you. Okay. Well, I got different ones. The second time. I do like the going through the forest like this. I guess other bone is my next one like picked kennebunk- bone. Really's fifteen minutes just ended. I have not heard him in a while heard of him. I mean, I feel like he could be like he'll run for like as a libertarian congressman at twenty twenty stone would or what have you guys figure? What sorting how Ken bone should wear? Yeah. He's a squib. I picked earth you should still sort it or fifteen minutes of fame. Celebrities. That would be fun the Anthony. She's a slithering, right? Probably. Yeah. Okay. That would make sense. I almost produced a corporal Petroleos. Okay. Obviously, you're close to a patrol is something is taking form over here as well. Again. It's forming it's one we're on the same thing. I picked speak over son. Obviously you're going to pick the same. If that's your those two options. I think sometimes instead of forever. This is astonishing Yuval started. The narration is telling me, I picked mind heart mind, over heart and spirit, mind, heart or spirit. Mind, here's been art. I mean, I don't care about. And he's there goes interesting. Most beer was interesting to me. Now, it's time to click drag and release us apart you shorts and not patroness or line patroness. And grab has a patroness. Do you guys want to guess what my patronises there's so many options? I don't okay. So it's like the Sarah McLachlan. So what is it Blackbird a black bird? I think that's a conflict saying, I'm probably all right? We're in an anti Beatles on my. My. Patroness is. You'll never believe a Basset hound. Oh boy. All right. That's fun. I got. Yeah. I took it yesterday for the fifth time. And I got a different thing every time when I got Basset hound yesterday. And this is like the ghost of the best at hand. Like, I don't have to walk it or anything it just shows up when I need it. It's very self sufficient. That's fantastic. It I like I like my. Yeah. We we have to start every episode now with my name's Akiva Winokur, and I belong to the house, and my Petronas is a Blackbird. Yes. Then you go. Now is there something about a key though that his house is a raven claw? And he has a black bird patroness bird. Interesting thing about raven claw is that its mascot is actually an eagle. It's not a raven, although target molding, what have you think? Otherwise. Houses are named after the founders of Hogwarts. So it was raven claw was the last name of one of the founders weights. Are you more of a Lamar Jackson or a Carson Wentz right now me? Yeah. I'm I'm Carson Wentz in that. Like, oh, it used to be good. But he's he might like is. He injured is never good. That's what people are wondering. Yeah. Okay. The girls think that all right? All right. So so you won't rob sister. Nino are awful puff. Yeah. And a Bessette hound. I'm I'm I'm not a Basset hound I have a bad for my patriot puff house, and your and your patrolling. This is the best down. That's pretty good. Okay. You wanna trade would you trained raven blind? No what if I throw in a third round dementia door. Nope. Nope. I'm good. Okay. I'm going to stand Pat. All right. So actually one tidbit about patrol says which actually robbed just kind of alluded to is that you actually can become your patrol, and there's a concept of Harry Potter club anime guy, and in the may winter there because him being the dog is unhelpful meeting a bird. Certain intelligence can train to become an anime Gous. Dog I'll be able to sneak into different places people. Let me at a Basset hound walk into a room who are people excited to see. They're excited that the best that right? Labor. I could fly everywhere. Oh, look at this. Cool Basset hound. Excited. I walk into a room a blackbirds a pretty cool onto have as your animated. Yeah. Like, you can just get around pretty quickly. So they're both really good there. There are so many different patrol assesses that are possible. So I'm glad that you guys are both happy with what you got us. I'm very happy. Yeah. No. I think this this worked out. Well, okay. Anything else that we need to know or learn or discover, well, I'm just kind of curious if you have any like takeaways from from this like one of you learned about Harry Potter you more into HP now. Rub. I think so of a little bit more of a curiosity. I certainly would like to know what my wife is in like, the guests that can you guys cast in the coal into a house quickly here. What else does she? Ms slithered, everyone knows, but they they didn't want to say I would say that no slow there say guessed she could be Griffin door though, because she is very strong will like. Jesus slithering. I think she's a clear slithering we get I'll give her the quiz later and see if she breaks my computer. I think they're pretty fun quizzes to take just doesn't really lend itself necessarily to a podcast format. But like the actual quizzes are pretty cool. So if anybody's listening, and you haven't done the Potter more like official quiz, I think no works 'cause like you guys said, they're pretty cool animation. All right. Yeah. So if you have a super high processing power, computer, you could take the quiz didn't also break your computer up the really slowed it down. It was. It was insane. I've never had a website. It's like nine thousand nine hundred seven AOL two point. Oh, right over. Rickie rolling not spend a lot of money on servers spending it all on. Yeah. Service, the backup or tweets. Right. If you have a computer that as mining bitcoin, and you want to take it off line for a little bit. You couldn't find out what your patronises? All right. Okay. How do people find the real weird sisters podcast? So you can search for us in tunes or anywhere. Real weird sisters. Our website is real weird sisters dot com. And then on Twitter were at real weird sister. No S on the end of too many characters. Not to be confused with the weird sisters because that's a different Harry Potter book. Putt. Yeah. Listen, we know all about competing podcasts is there's also more successful than yours. No. Okay. Fine. I don't think they had quite the same level of like ambition. Yeah. I don't think they were trying to get to be a big podcast. Okay. So, you know, your podcast. I mean, there's a lot of other more successful, Harry Potter tons out there. Not what the same aren't there? More Harry Potter, podcasts or survivor podcasts. Oh, I think there's more Harry Potter podcasts. There's doesn't and there's just a bigger fan. That's been going on for probably does a lot of survivor podcast too. Yeah. There's there's literally dozens of Harry Potter ones. And I mean, if you search for it like you I feel like the search results are not always accurate either. Like, there's other ones I know of that don't even come up if you just search Harry Potter. So there's tons out there. But just search for the real world coasters, make your life a little simple. Real weird sisters. Go ahead. And check it out a real weird sisters on patroness. Also. So be sure to take a look if you are a fan of the real weird sisters podcast anything else. You want to leave us with my Twitter handle is at real weird. Martha Alison is too hard to spell so. And how what's Chinky Rowlings Twitter? If people want to check out Oban, actually, I don't know. I think it's just rolling. But yes, you probably got that. And if not you could buy it should just pay. She's pretty infamous that would have been a good game to have about. Which is the real JK Rollings tweet played that you know, what if he has an underscore. She's like Kaley. Strong JK Rollings Holt. Yes. Must be holding. Because they know your that rich like at Keiv won't give it to me. But I'm sure for like ten grand. I could get at Keiv. 'cause who am I? But the J K Rowling, you know, you're not gonna you're not gonna accept ten green. Because you know, she's got billions I would want a million dollars for that for to get rid of that. Okay. Okay. All right. Good stuff. Alice. Martha thank you so much for coming on here and short notice to talk about the wizard ING world of Harry Potter. It was our pleasure. Thank you so much for having us on. It was a ton of fun. And we just hope that we were able to share a little bit about Harry Potter with you. Thank you so much. We had a blast. Just thank you. What's the official Harry? Potter? Goodbye message. Lumo specs. Maximum knocks now just knocks. Okay, folks that turns everything dark not and you say it or you're like knocking on the table now. NOX and say that's the spell. Yeah. Knox our seventh books. I remember that. All right knock knocks to Alice and knocks the Martha. Thank you again knocks guys. Thanks so much. Thanks kiva. Needle. All right. We now we know everything about Harry Potter. We're experts. I don't think we're going to start that Harry Potter podcast, though. I think I'm out on. Well, it sounds like it's a very competitive marketplace very competitive, and then I just think that's too many books. Like, do you want to read seven books? No. I don't wanna read seven books and also like you listen to books on tape or whether there's hold on tape, even though nobody. I incorrect correctly. Like, I think that really old people are saying books on tape. I think, you know, say audiobook, do do do they still make cassettes like could you get a cassette of let's say Arianna Grandes album comes out. There's no cassette available. You think? So there is vital. But I don't think anybody is making a cassette. I think it sort of think that could come back. Do you think that could be the new vinyl now that vinyls popular again? Could it be like, hey, I got the new RAM album, and it's on Cassandra new RAM album. I don't even I think the honest, I don't even know if they're making the CDs. I think they make CD's. Like with the charts are just the church all digital now. I think they do make CD's they might they don't make that many. I think they exist. I don't think they make zero CDs of popular album. I don't know. I I feel like that one of the big box retailers saying that they're doing away with the music department. Like once they like best buy that could be fake news that no. But that makes sense doesn't mean that they're zero CDs. Like, if a popular invitation swift album comes out, I think you could in theory by CD somewhere. I guess. Yeah. Did you have like a big CD collection? At one point. I had a very small to medium sized CD collection at one point. It was really like the main way to know someone's personality when we were in high school that was almost like you could do like a palm reading of like you'd go to somebody's house, and they'd have like the binder full of CDs. And you could just like go through like the delay. Okay. Oh, this is what they have in the front. This is what they have this. Okay. They have all of these CDs a year, you can really the best way to. No a person and everyone if you if you grew up at the same time like especially in the late nineties, which was peak CD everyone had like pretty much the same eight albums. But then it was sort of like the other stuff that would. Sort of discern like personnel. Like everybody had like a blood sugar sex magic by the red hot chili peppers, and like ten by Pearl Jam metallica's black. No, are you. Are you not on the same page? And you're like, I did not have never Nirvana's. Nevermind, everyone had that CD. Yeah. I think I probably did not have a ton of CDs intil later on into the nineties where I did not have a big music collection link wanted to to would you will blink wanting to two guys. Everyone twenty two CD. I never had a ton of the CDs. Also just the update of from February of this year. I see this is from billboard dot com. Best buy to pull CDs. Target threatens to pay labels for CD's only when customers buy them. So you still looks like they still do make CD's but nobody's buying. No not. They're not doing great. I wouldn't buy stock and see these right, right? Definitely nobody is making cassette tapes. I do think they should come back. Did you ever make a playlist with a cassette tape where like song would come on? Like k rockers he one hundred shore. Arctic. I did have some of the dates us, right? We would get like the boombox that would have like the two you could make a copy of a gift set. But I probably spent more time burning CD's ultimately than I did with making a ton of cassettes. The I did both actually I used to pay. I was like very incompetent the pay someone to burn the city's for me. I didn't know how. Yeah. So. Even know how we got onto this. What what are we talking about? All right. Let's let's get to the bag because we have a bunch of things I predict that we add multiple things to the. Oh. Let's start off with Andy who calls this, Robin. Akiva, said a world record. Oh, boy, you guys spend an entire episode looking through sections of the Guinness Book of world records talking about them. And looking for a record that one of you can break listeners can submit suggestions the week before to streamline things the process of doing it officially takes a long time. And he concludes the link on Guinness world records website, but to make it a one time, maybe you could find something to beat unofficially or come up with a new record and Senate to Guinness afterwards and try and get certified. It's intriguing. I don't know if I thought that a lot of people have said, I'm going to sit a Guinness Book a world record. So all of the the low hanging fruit is out. So we are going to be like doing something that is going to really recap Vic on our lives. Yes. Because the one record I could think of you're not gonna like because I just logistically it's insane. And it's the longest podcast ever. Right. How we're gonna do lungs podcasts. Ever. We stay awake for two days. Well, I think we maybe would take turns. It doesn't have to be one person. We could get a whole crew in here. It could be like we could start it. But then you know, we could have maybe I could man the ship most of the time. But we could also have other people come on. But then ultimately, it's like, I don't know. What do you think the record is now, I guess it's something like two days. I think we could beat that. Yeah. And then does it have to. Then be posted as a podcast like is it I think so I mean, maybe we'll just put it in the RA. I don't think we have to like punish the arch of seventy five our podcast seventy five our podcast, like I don't know how many megabytes that ultimately is going to be I feel like that. The ring is gonna break your like your whole computer system. I don't know if it's going to rake the whole host like Guinness will still allow it if we don't post it on on itunes. Well, we just like if it's a link to it to it's not posted on I tunes. Is it still a podcast? I feel like that Guinness is going to be pretty particular about these sort of things we could post it in the NAFTA. We set the record. We could get rid of it also taking up too much space or something. Right. A how our subscribers gonna feel about you know, two gig podcasts downloading. Yeah. That's a good question. So do you want to table this put it with dozens of other things in the waiting room and have people send in ideas for records? We could break, right. If people think, well, I guess that's part of the podcast. Would there be a Guinness Book of world record that we could attempt to do? But like if we figure out like, okay, here's the record. Oh, if I stand on one foot for nine hours. All right. Who's on right near you? And I don't know how we're showing that. So I think we're limited to audio things. So we have to think of it like what can we do on a podcast like the most hamburgers eaten while podcast and things like that? So so we're little limited. But. I do think there are record potential, and I didn't I should have gone to the website and seen beforehand if they have podcast related records. But I think they probably do like, I think that part of the appeal of begins book of world records is that you know, every shmoe that's ever picked up the book looks at it like, well, let me find the record. I could break. So right. There's not a ton of they're like if we want to do some sort of a deep dive into the Guinness Book a world's records, and then potentially looking for something that we could do. But then breaking the record is another podcast like we could do that. Also, we could we could it could be two parts. Whereas we could do the first one and then put the second part on the wheel when we pick. But my pumped up when Guinness Book a world's records comes up on the wheel. I'd say the answer is most definitely not. Okay. So how about I'll put this in the waiting room? And if someone is a good idea for Guinness world record that we can break. We are definitely willing to make that the podcast, right? Is there something they're not tracking like? The amount of times mentioning the word avocado on one podcast. Like, I feel like we could go very niche, and you could obviously there's one hundred records to break millions of records. The so I don't know we we could be in touch with the Guinness people. Also, I actually think talking to somebody from Guinness about the records that we could break. I think it would be more interesting. Yeah. That would be good. If we could get a Guinness person to give ideas that would be a fun podcast. And then maybe we can make out of that. If we actually come up with something. Yeah. How many people work at the Guinness Book of world records? Is it like I want to say that? It's like one of these things that seems like a big operation, but it's really like one or two. Yeah. What do you think the over under is four fulltime employees working on the Guinness Book, the world's going under? I'm going under. I think a lot of these is like I think it's like the Razzies where it's like not even an award show. It's just like this been legend. Show up for like a weekend a year. Yes. I don't. I don't think it's like a fulltime like how have you ever met someone who was like, oh I worked for Guinness Book of world medicine. Like, I've met people who work at Google. I've never met a Guinness world records person with a lot of companies. I haven't met an employee of. Yeah. They're all small. To be has a bunch of things to say, I've never met anybody that works at I don't know like big corporation. But it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. You've never met anybody. We're trying to trying to think of like, I was gonna say corporation. I probably have met people that work at Coca Cola probably have. But probably this probably companies that have you know, I bet not only that you probably have a patriot who does or has worked at Coca Cola. I mean name a fortune five hundred hundred company like this problem a bunch of the night never been an employee patrons only worked for fortune five hundred companies honestly, the them in if they're at a fortune five hundred company. Yeah. Okay. It's V has a bunch of things to say. Now, we asked this is our eleventh episode. We asked last week if our listeners could rank the ten episodes, we could get a feel for what trash. Yes, so ten or trash was on that list. So you quickly if you don't mind that will read the order from ten to one, and then three has something to say also about these ten podcast. Okay. So this is visa lists. No. This is everybody about twenty people sent in an I just put them in a chart and average them out, Chester style. Okay. So here are the consensus rankings from the listeners of the podcast who we say that if we if we would be like higher low in terms of where we think the they would have fallen sure. Well, just to remind them they were perfect strangers white the worst. That's perpetrators was ranked the lowest. No, I was just gonna know you. Okay. How about this? I'll go from. Ten to tend to one. So the tenth of one I'm guessing, you would know which one it is watching music videos. The music video podcast was the most commonly voted worse than it ended up. I get why. Yeah. No surprise there. You want to guess what? The second least popular episode was boy Secondly popular episode. It's probably something that people just probably didn't care about. But based on the feedback. We got I guess the Seinfeld episode. So Seinfeld was the second least popular. But there were a lot of people that who it was their favourite. But they didn't send in a lot of people said no that was my favorite, but they didn't send them full, Dan. Yeah. So I didn't count it. I think the Seinfeld people like Chester said, it's our only good one. So far. Oh, it's just very quiet during Robin. Akiva, even defined as busy. He's busy chesser has been busy. I think he's jealous. I think he wants to get on wants to come on the show. And I'm not sure what we don't have him on any perspective. Either way episodes yet. I listened to the thirty two fans podcasts. It was a very surreal experience. I listened to the thirty two fans podcasts while at the movie theater watching the Grinch I had I was sitting. There was was at a movie with my family, and I had an air bud in or air pot in and I live. Well, listen to the latest thirty two fans podcast, not a great and -dorsements for the Grinch movie. No. I mean, did you know you were doing the I had it in? So she was sitting to the right of me. Nobody told the the Arab bear pod in the left ear that was facing away from her. And she never notice. I never I never asked her if she says, so maybe she did know, and she didn't say anything, but I also did. Not make her aware. Yeah. What do you think that Chester going into restaurant for thanksgiving dinner? Whatever if that's what he wants to do. No. He doesn't want to do that. But also, you have no football access. If you're at a restaurant, especially the one he's going to I guess fancy one and also who wants to bring their kids to a fancy restaurant on thanksgiving here. What kind was it again? Georgian. Gee, I I don't know what Georgian food is assuming it's not like, you know. Fried chicken and benefits. Yeah. He right. He was in Georgia for a wedding this weekend. Also, the state, and then he's going to Georgia the country Georgia in the con. Okay. The eighth one. I was very surprised by and I think the only reason this is eighth because it was nobody's number one. Because it was also nobody's least favourite, and that's leprechaun. I thought like leprechaun that's a star. Yeah. Stunner. I thought that when there's a punch that are basically in the same boat because may twenty second nineteen ninety eight which is seventh is the same thing. Nobody had it in their bottom two. But nobody had it as number one. It's also been a little while number six was the dad know it alls, similar PC bias. I think on that one. We did this in five weeks. I think it'd probably be lower. Okay. So that was six five was top ten or trash. I'm surprised these are all but five through nine or basically tied. They're all like a point or two apart. So there's really nothing to glean from that it will they'll really like literally like decimal points because a couple of people have that number one number four was your tweets or trash. Yeah. A lot of people have the very bottom. But if you peel the Wheeler stands had it at number one, it was polarize. Yeah. Polarizing number three patriots jet. So a lot of people have that at the bottom. But then a bunch of people had it also at one two interesting like certainly the patriots. I would not have had it. I like it that was one of my favorite one done out of the guest. It was that high. I wanna fun doing it. I would not think the I think the jets running out of time in the first half is one of my is one of the all-time great moments for me. Eric Tomlinson is so bad in real life. Also, it makes it makes a fun Tyneside. Like he's on the field like half the game. And he's never done the sern- -able foot. Bit jets patriots this weekend. We'll see if Eric Tomlinson has his signature game as his like, his only negatives or he can't catch or block, and those are only two jobs, and he's like objectively the worst than the NFL. Both of those things the second most popular one was an outside anybody's top five actually was the wife. Swap quiz. Okay. People like. Yeah. And number one was perfect strangers. Our first episode. I just have a have a real. Place in their heart for our first episode. Okay. All right. So there you go. All right. So great job of everybody. That's sent us. There a ranking. And of course, if you want to send in your own feedback as we go along are a NAP at at his website icons or need a podcast website. I come or Seinfeld post show. Recaps. So is there anything are? There any podcasts of those ten that you immediately want to put back on the wheel because fees writing in he said that we don't really have a mechanism mechanism to put things back on the wheel right away. So of the things that we did I I would like to do another date podcast. I feel like not. But I, but I also I definitely think we should do one. But I don't think we need to do. And now like I don't think we need to be putting stuff like that on the wheel. While we still have seasons. Season three episode seven being picked. But it's a really great point of it. There is no mechanism for something to return to the wheel. I think that we should figure out exactly how that works. And also, you know, what are the rules of? Okay. Let's say we green light it. Do we have to wait, okay? In five spots than your after five episodes. Then it will return to contention because we don't want to necessarily have. Okay. We did dad know it alls people liked it. Okay. Dad know, it alls is back on the wheel. And then oh it came up again. It's back to back dad know it alls episodes. Right, right. I'd say. The thing most likely to come back is leprechaun too. I do think we can do all gone movies. Yeah. So I think so we need to maybe this is going to the wheel waiting room of what is the mechanism by which something returns to the wheel? And then how long of a waiting period. Do we need before a something that is a hit does return to the wheel and multiple people actually wrote? Instead, I should we shouldn't even say what's on the wheel every week. We just say what's in the wheel waiting room. I'm not going to do that now because there's so many things, but I will write it in the thread for this podcast in the Facebook group. I'll I'll right. What what do you need don't say? When it's on the wheel like before the spin. Yes. Someone said who cares? What's on the wheel? Tell us. What's in the waiting room? Well, that would just say here's what comes up. And then it's like, oh, I didn't even know we could do both. I don't I didn't agree. But I think we'd be about will put all the wheels stuff, and I'll maybe maybe people will come up with an idea from that. Okay. So leprechaun too. I think mostly some of the things like this episode, Harry Potter, it would be very difficult to put back on even if it was like the grace of right? I don't know how you'd redo this. Right. You'd have to like put another sort of Harry Potter Esq thing to be like Lord of the ring is something like that. It's also has a really good idea for the wheel yet. It's called, Robin. Akiva have a conspiracy pod conspiracy. Pod. He says ask listeners for their craziest funniest wacky than most convincing conspiracy theories. It can be structured like the hot takeoff with you, and rob grading takes and conspiracies biscuit scenario is obviously you pitching conspiracies to Robin Antonio, so he pitches in Tony Missouri for every podcast. He thinks. And then they rank them he thinks it would be funny and weird and has the fact of someone dropping. Yeah. Generally believed that not only the moon landing is fake. But the moon itself is fake. Okay. You know, a lot of people we got a lot of feedback that people love their alien conversation. And everyone said you dominated me in the alien conversation. Justice said there is no way. I'm right. There's one hundred percent chance that is life on other planets. Yeah. I just feel like that. You were. V- very dug in on. They're not whining intelligent life. And it was very popular take. I honestly had never given it any thought I barely think about like human life on this planet. I don't care about other planets. Well, I think that really you don't have to stand on in terms of that in the entire universe of billions of galaxies in all these stars that there's no other like, we're we're we're in right that feels like almost like impossible to imagine. But are they here are they visiting us. I think that that's where you can get into a pretty good debate. Okay. But I really like this. I think that there's enough out there listeners can send stuff I can research stuff. Yeah. I don't know. I don't know if we need to make it hot take off style. Although we certainly can definitely would work like that. So what I really don't wanna do. Okay. Don't write into us about pizza gay or you know, any sort of you know, a hype. Or political conspiracy theory not interest. I mean, we could we could pick week. We'll we'll pick it. And also can I add a no survivor conspiracy theories. That's a different that's a different podcast. So those are the two things. So we're talking about are fun conspiracy theories. You know, if if you have them, I don't know, what are we putting this on the wheel? I think we should do people have not into it or through theories. I think so. And I think even if the listeners don't I think I can do a deep dive. Okay. Yeah. You can do all deep dive into some of the most interesting titillating conspiracy theories that are out there. But you know, nothing that's going to be super highly political. We don't need to are you okay within Tony Lazzaro joining us per if he chooses if he chooses. I I don't want to force anything on anybody. If he would like to ask them if you'd be interested in he he's interested is interested. Okay. Yes. So I'm okay with this. Let's let's put a conspiracy podcast. What's it called the conspiracy cast conspiracy? Pod. He said, I think could spirit cast might be better. Okay. All right to have it considered. Here. We go. On the wheel mushroom us up. Love it. Yeah. I thought that that would go on. I think there's we could we could figure the structure, but I think that's a no brainer. Drew says Netflix is notorious for its collection of poor quality hilariously awful and a garbage movies that you probably couldn't find anywhere else. So Robin, he says harm movies, but I'm extend this because we don't like our movies, Robin. Akiva, watch awful like Netflix original movie and attempt to recap and unfold everything they just watch. I guess the benefit is like most people have net. Netflix. They can easily watch with us. My kids. There's a big there was a big scandal in my house where my daughter's like without permission watched a while ago like the kissing booth. We can't we can't get them to admit that they watched it. They just like giggle when we ask them. We don't know for sure if they're trolling us, or if they really watch that one day when we weren't around and you look at your viewing history. I think I could. But I also like there's a bunch of like my daughter sometimes uses her grandmother's net flicks account. So I don't know the password like off the top. My head. I could have checked this will. So it was like nine months ago. I'm going to like it also be weird to like scroll through like relatives. I don't wanna see what they're watching on Netflix. I don't want to judge them. Why they like stop watching love in the middle of season two. I don't know. Why are they still watching house of cards? No fence. So I think. I'm not sure I think they did watch it. But I don't know it's possible there just trolling us. Yeah. Netflix. Is fun. I would just like to be looking give us the movie. So you don't you don't wanna put like if it gets picked we start off by like spinning a wheel type of thing where we pick like all right here the ten right? Most popular or stupid, isn't it? It's put this on the wheel. Okay. And then it comes up today. And we're like, okay watching Netflix movie. All right. Well, Email us the Netflix movie, and then people come into the next week. And then they have to wait to find out what the Netflix movie is going to be and then pause the podcast and listened to the movies. So it's not a fully like a lot of rom coms. Would you be okay? Watching like rom com possibly aimed at like my little sister. That's fine. Is it all the boys? They love before. That's something something like that. The worst doors movie is I just think it's like why think we should do the most popular one, right? I mean, they have like their own like made for Netflix like Christmas movies, something like the prince the Christmas Princess or something like that like really considered to be. Pretty terrible. So I'm okay with that. I think we should avoid horror because I feel like that. We're all in on the leprechaun franchises. That's are harboring. And we're not big hard guys to begin with. Yeah. There's no centennial. He's blowing up an all boys. I love before that is that is probably the most popular one right now. Okay. So sh I'm okay with this. But just let let's nail down what the movie is. Unless you do you wanna do that movie? Because I think that's their like main one. What's it called to all the boys? I've loved before. I don't know what it's about I sort of guess from the tight a take off on the a Julio Iglesias hit. We could ask who's who would be are like expert on this type of thing. We don't need a guest all the time. I don't mean a guess I mean to know what's the most popular movie like who would know trying to think who would know what to watch. That's why I kind of feel like that. We should just put this put it in the waiting room for the cable, and then give you send us in movie ideas and next week. We could definitely put us. No Netflix movie. What's like, a Netflix original movie that will go? On the wheel next week. Right right now, we just need to the way. I was definitely in the club. I in the patron podcasts that I do with my wife that we had a conversation about what our guest the apps that are on my home screen and she net flicks. That I have nets looks on the on the front on the front page of my iphone. And I said, I'm not watching Netflix on my cell phone. What do you think I'm a psychopath, and she got very mad that I I implied that. And then some the listeners got mad, but I don't leave my home while winter my watching Netflix on a cell phone. I feel the same way about game pass like NFL game pass watching games live. I I didn't have in my phone, and I went out and a real is like, ooh, that's weird. They don't have it. But I don't why would I not watch it on a big screen? I'm never done not on the subway or going on a train or anywhere like that. Or even. If I'm on a plane. I watch it on my ipad. I'm not like I listened to things on my phone. But I'm not watching anything on my phone. I don't even watch YouTube on my phone. Yeah. No, I'm with you. I don't have a YouTube the YouTube app, even on on my phone. I'm with. Yeah. We're we're not we're not normal YouTube on my phone is to babysit my kids when I'm out in public. Yes. Youtube the gravy said to you also had a toes he had twin girls this week. Oh, my became a dad. Why first time? Oh, my of course, was Email us in a ten thousand word Email. My wife's sister had twins less than a year ago. And like I've helped her in she's been here a bunch this week, and I have helped in from the car, and it's like an hour every time there's forty bags. There's three little kids because she had an older one before the twins. It's it's quite different than just having one little kid at a time. Yeah, it's insane. Like you're carrying too. You're doing all these things there's always like a kid crying. You can't get to. It's bananas. Yes. I will say that we have multiple Z's in the rob. As a podcast are a listening audience. So the big with fees. That's like our main demo is just dudes named Vicky. I. So there's an there's another popular v of don't congratulate him on his twins. Well, you should see what he says. Okay. This. I don't have this in front of me who suggested this. But there was a thread in the news af Facebook group. Yeah. Where someone said we should investigate the murder of Casey Kasem, actually, so this is very interesting. So for people who are in a p listeners who are not listeners to the greater survivor podcast enemy of it's greater than this. But in terms of if there are numerous survivor podcasts the extended podcast universe. Yeah. So in one of those podcasts of the Casey Kasem figures, quite prominently into a weekly song competent. This is very hard to explain to somebody who try by just meet someone on the street and try and explain this podcast, which is a weekly survivor parody song based on the previous week's episode. Just try it. Like, I go on a first date and explain this the one off every week explaining it'd be like that would be a podcast just like explaining to random. People on a first date like what what the one though that you listen to it. Right. And Vic the countdown of songs is hosted by the late great Casey Kasem as done by impression from by me. And I do a terrible Casey Kasem impression because I had done one on television in the year two thousand and three Casey Kasem them has been deceased for. I think like a four years at this point. Yeah. Yeah. I wanna say twenty fourteen or two thousand fifteen was when he yes way but this upcoming weekend. There's going to be a forty eight hours, which I didn't even realize was still on the air on documentary on CBS exploring the. The accusations. I believe that Casey Kasem, his children are claiming that I believe his third wife actually had a murder, I think Casey was without some of his facilities late in life and had remarried a woman that the family did not like and the his children are claiming that this woman ended up. I don't know exactly. Whether it was through some sort of like, you know, lack of care or if it was an actual murder. I think that that will be explored in the documentary. So it's definitely interesting. And I think it does tie into that. There's a lot of interest in true crime and interest in Casey Kasem. I do worry about is it not fun to talk about, you know. And also, I didn't realize that there's a forty eight hours thing. So maybe we were getting beaten to the punchier if there's a whole two hours. I'm leave this Saturday on CBS, and I had been privately thinking about like, oh, I wonder if I should do something about this forty eight hours documentary in terms of the interest in the podcast, the audiences fascination with true crime and cereal and stuff. Like that. Would this be interesting to cover on a podcast sort of like people are making a murderer and things of that nature? So it was on my radar in terms of it being a podcast. I just don't know necessarily if it's certainly not fun to talk about anybody's murder, and and does it then also, you know, really poison the Casey Kasem angle the wand of. Yeah. It could get tricky. You might have to retire. Casey. If if things go bad. Yeah. I think all right. So if they're getting to that, I don't think we can get to. I've got another mystery that we could possibly sell though. Okay. Modestly his case some used to solve as shaggy on Scooby doo. That's right. This is this is much less depressing. So are you familiar with Jeff Probst who is he? Yes. So he is the host of survivor, and he directed a movie in two thousand eleven and then in two thousand fourteen decided to or it was going to be released. He decided to direct the second movie, and this movie called kiss me as never seen the light of day. And people tweeted him all the time, and you never spawns a. Like, maybe three years ago. He would respond. Oh, it's coming. And then it never came out. It doesn't exist on any streaming service or anywhere. It starts Jenna Fisher. And we Osmond who's like a big like tween star Missy pile who's in a big Oscar movie, Sarah Polger, Steven Weber. Rita wilson. Tom Hanks wife. Big cast. There was a trailer. It had because it had a couple of really popular teen stars in it like ten million views on YouTube. It has now been taken down the trailer does not exist anymore. It is about a teenager diagnosed with scoliosis navigates her way through formative years, this movie does not exist. What if we do a deep dive into where the movie kiss me is? And we get to Jeff Probst and we find the answer. I mean, I I don't think we're going to get to Jeff Probst through an answer from him. Gus this I will be funny of Jeff Probst who's not been on podcast than years came onto discuss not survivor survivor podcast. I'm not particularly interested in in this one for verve. Right. I don't know what the the politics of why kiss me has not seen the light of day. Perhaps it's eight is a sore subject with with Jeff Probst. And then inadvertently causes a problem between rob is a podcast and Jeff Probst over. I mean, if we're going to go down like I feel like I'd rather it be for a good reason as opposed to a desire to explore the fate of the film kiss me got it. All right. We got so many more. What are we going to? What are we going to uncover in a week in a week? Right. I mean, I don't know we're going to get Probst and find out what happened when we're gonna get. We're not going to get Jeff Probst dawn to to talk about this. Next up. We have Danny from the bay. Could you do an interactive watch along of a current episode of the price is right? You comment on how the contestants are doing. But also, Robin Akiva can have a game within the game where we bid we'd write down or you know, we sort of pause right down our bids. And guess who does better? The better bid gets a point per competition. You could also compete in some of the showcases. What do you think about watching the price is right? I think this would be a season three episode seven. Yeah. I think it'd be a current of. So the price is right. I mean, I I'm game. If you are. Yeah. Would you be excited? If right if we spend the wheel in a few minutes and the price is right comes up. I mean, come on down. I mean, I am a very longtime of you're. I mean, I I have not watched it in many many years. Here and there, but are you a game show viewer? Yeah. I used to when I was home from school. I always watch price, right and family feud and stuff like that. Millionaire in my later years. Yeah. I totally ruined. Now, it's not the same shown. So I do. So are we watching an interactivity where you so like you, and I are going to go go on CBS all access and we're watching an episode of the prices right together. And we're and we're trying to decipher like, okay. So all right. So like the drew Carey says like all right? Let's look at the next item forbids, and then it's like, it's a new vacuum cleaner. And we're like we're talking about like keep it was those have you had a vacuum cleaner. That do if you had to guess as your vacuum cleaner ten years old. And we're talking about the thing. And then we're saying all right. What do you what do you think of Accu in cleaner? 'cause yeah, I think we could do that. So we're doing it live on the lake we're playing it's almost like the music videos in that way. We're we're gonna play the episode on that one. Well, so let's put this on the wolf. So all right. I guess we'll see how far along. It goes. I'm nervous. But I guess that's part of the fun. Yeah. I don't I think this is a low risk alternately indefinitely on board with the idea. I'm just unsure if we're if we if we are recapping episode of the price is right or we're playing along. I think we're watching we're doing both. I think we're watching live. We could come in and what's going on and the people on the on the screen, but I think we're also planning, but we're going to play the audio for the audience. Yeah. Okay. All right. So let's let's go ahead and give it a go. On the we all right? So I told you we would add to we already had it too. So I'm not going to put more even though we've got a lot of really good listener ideas. I will save them for next week. But we do have actually I really liked this one I'm gonna do one more. And then we'll go to three upset seven. And then we'll spend the wheel out here. Erin. Hayes tweets at us and said what about this is your life segment you track down someone from the others from the other person's pass a former girlfriend yet, good luck. Former life. Let's but just for the record the let's let's not find any former girlfriend. Well, let's just let's finish. The listeners aren't tracking them down for us. And we host them on the podcast with voice the skies. Questions are asked them we try and figure out who the person is from your pass to Larry ensues. Now, logistically, this is tricky. Yup. It would it would it would probably have to be like someone from my past than someone like coming on. And then I to figure out I just reminding them, I Android guess would help you find. When I mean, we we did go to school from second grade through college. So I feel like he knows pretty much everyone. I know. I don't I just I think it's logistically is tricky if someone's like, hey, I've got a really good person that that would be interesting. They could Email you and maybe figure it out. Yeah. But I don't know. I don't it is a good idea in in theory. I just don't own practice if it works. And is it a full podcast like five questions? We're going to figure it out. Then we talk about like why we're not in touch anymore and stuff like that. I I'm not really sure why it's interesting for the audience. Yeah. That's what I'm thinking. Like, it's interesting for me. I agree. I'm not sure if it's interesting people could say, otherwise, I mean, there's a reason why this this show has not. Era, where every single piece of intellectual property has been rebooted nine times over this. A reason why this is not been on any form of line has been rebooted. Right. All right. So that's a no for now. Okay. Let's let's rip through season three episode seven. I'm just going to tell you the name of some shows any from the bay area murder. She wrote or Texas Walker Texas ranger murder. She wrote has mystery Walker Texas ruin hill suggested that this week. And also said we could get you pause. It sort of or we could write down our guests, you guess who'd solve it before the final act. I'm not a big murder. She wrote guy though, I have to be honest. Anybody pumped up when murder she wrote comes out with say zero zero people are pumped up. I mean Walker Texas or yeah, I guess it's a show is anybody pumped up. I know there's a lot of like Chuck Norris means, but I do think that's down. I have not seen many Chuck Norris memes on social media in the last like five years. Yeah. I who's excited for that. Yeah. Breath. Commu thirteen fourteen says episode seven of celebrity death match the match ups include a wreath of versus Barbra Streisand. Bill gates. I Michael Flatley. I don't know how they came with that. Look, what is the really like how do they figure out and then Nicholson? Yeah. So it's like two very similar like they do the same thing. Activists actor singer for singer. And then Bill Gates, I Michael Flatley. So are you interested in celebrity death match? Are you? I'm not not interested in it. But I'm not interested. I kind of feel like that. If we could like do our own celebrity death match about what might be a in love the show and was on. It was always like a funnier idea than the actual show. Right. Okay. So here's here's my counter or pitch to you. Could we cast our own celebrity death match wrestlemainia card like our our spec script for the celebrity death match wrestlemainia? Yeah. I guess we could do that. I mean is that interesting if we're like, okay, how about okay, here's my list. How about this one of people that have like a feud? We get them into the celebrity death match wrestlemainia on the card. Yeah. I think it's worth thing about all right? When the wheel waiting room. Okay. Edwin Johnson says your alien Oregon from last week only proves that you actually need to do the ancient alien season. Three episode seven. Now, ancient alien is more of a recent show though, right? I don't really unfamiliar with it to be honest. I don't know enough about ancient aliens, I had googled it real quick when this had been brought up I think it's like a from only a couple of years ago, ancient aliens, it's from this decade, but they've done a million seasons there up to season thirteen and see some one started in two thousand ten I don't know what they're exactly talking about to hear what season three episode seven is. Or it's called aliens, plagues and epidemics. Oh boy. It's from September eighth twenty eleven. It says this episode suggests that someplace and disease were brought on by pathogens of extra terrestrial origin, examples. Given are sudden pandemics such as the Spanish influenza central areas plague of Athens, the Justinian plague and the black plague which were accompanied by reports of unusual celestial phenomena, and the appearance of strange creatures and objects in the sky, ancient carvings of figures dressed than Witter's suggested to be has meant suits. So this is really look the conspiracy theory. Yeah. Unexplained illnesses that have appeared after meteoroid pacts Ness experiments with bacteria and extreme files that can survive in the extreme conditions of. Space and the recent appearance of unusual medical conditions such as more gallons disease. Now, I'm more gallons disease. I'm slightly familiar with because do you remember the closer for the Mets? Billy Koch very quickly. He was the closer for the Blue Jays more famously. Yeah, he had looked sort of a punk rock vibe going for him. Okay. That's pretty good player for years. I believe he made an all star game or two. He's whole family one day came out and said, they have this more gallons disease. This is in two thousand six and I think most people like the CDC investigated and most people most doctors say, it's not a real disease. It's people's had but his whole family and other families say that it is delusional. He has not been like nothing's come of it since they said it in the last twelve years. I even like Gould it a year to go like nothing. He is. He is sort of not been in the news since then there hasn't been new more gallon stuff. When Morgan's is interesting. He played on the Mets wasn't he on? Oh, you know. He was never on the Mets who is the Blue Jays closer. Who was who is Billy Taylor? Billy Taylor was traded to the Mets one year. When when they were good sorry. He he was the most famously on the Blue Jays. But no he played for the as white socks in malls. He didn't have a run in with Gerry manual, though, you the wild inconsistency on the mound Jerry manual, remove the Koch from the role of closer in two thousand and three. I don't remember why I thought he was a big thing with Billy Taylor. Yeah. So that's more gallons, which seems to be interesting. But I don't know how much there is for full pockets, there unsolved aliens that sends bananas engineer liens, you know, I don't think I wanna talk about a plagues and Haley lake sounds like not so fun. Yeah. So I don't know if there was something fun about the aliens. But I don't wanna get into you know, what does eases they've caused and maybe there's a to come after us for the diseases and duct me. And so I think I'm out on what do you think about Robin? Akiva, get on the oh jury he'll chop. Oh jury, you know, about the chapel court case that's going on now. To know about this, not really. Do know anything, but El Chapo, I I've heard the name so El Chapo was like it was like the number one like druglord in Mexico, and he escaped from jail like in insane fashion multiple times like Hollywood style. And then Mexico's like enough of this guy, and they sent him to the US to be prosecuted. And now his court case is taking place in New York. Yeah. I was just thinking it would be fun to be on that jury. He promised that. He won't have any member of the jury killed in the promise that. Yeah, I think, but I think I've said for for years that I feel like that El Chapo has gotten a raw deal. I would love to it's too late. Now would have loved to get on the jury and just you know, gotten that gun that not guilty thing. And then hit up El Chapo afterwards. Like, listen, I need a need some cat. I think. You know, I think the people are being don't believe everything you hear about L chop. Always true. That's true. It is fake news. They'll get off of stuff. I'm trying on the right side of El Chapo. It's it's like a such a John Grisham thing that like a guy gets on the jury not like it's coming from me. Usually it's coming from like, the lawyer, they get someone on the they they have a ring around the jury here. I'm there like self appointed ring or I'm going in there. And I'm making sure he's found not guilty. But then afterwards, I'm like, listen. I need to kick back. Yeah. I don't know why just thought of that. Anyway to more three three more quick ones. Reality alley says candidacies in three episodes seven. That's interesting. Do you have a synopsis or is every episode exactly the same? I think it's like a person catfish is my my problem with catfish. And that doesn't mean we can't do it is that the show is clearly bogus no works where I think the show the way that you'll works is your cat fishing somebody and you call up the production company and be like, I'm the cat Fisher. And they work backwards. But then the show makes it seem like the other way. It's a totally people all the show and Sam cat fishing somebody. Yeah. That's how otherwise it would make no sense. Otherwise, they would have no way of knowing. Answer to most of these questions. They're looking for when they'd have like casting calls. It's like the cat Fisher a lot of times. So seem three at seven is called Salona and Elijah on it's been in a five year old relationship with Elijah. I do think this is going to be spoilers. I'm not gonna read the whole thing because it's like a very long explanation. They met on my space when Salona was fourteen okay. Was her rock when she was coming to terms with their parents divorce. But then he abruptly goes off the radar around a couple of years later, he reaches out via Facebook message when salon is in relationship with Danny. But says that his gadget does not facilitate phone calls or video chat. Is get listen, hence resulting in him. Resorting to a texting. Because what do you think like writes in the synopsis for every episode of catfish? Kapito work like why do people just agree to do this people in very into Wikipedia? Yeah. Elijah's numbers. Trace the thirty three year old Denise unconductive Facebook. Search Facebook provost pop up with Elijah's name pictures or both eventually this is a spoiler by the end. So what do you think it's interesting? But I feel that we have you know, ten other things that I'd be way more excited better shows on the wheel. And also, I think catfish is sort of come and gone. I don't think it's still catfish season. I think it's not it's not really a hip right now catfish, I think it's probably stored of the show now Tercel, maybe more interesting you, and I either catfish somebody or like during the week leading up to a people try to catfish us and then. What are we can't fishing someone for? I don't know someone with an idea. I don't have their names. So I wasn't going to read. It says the ideas just called, Robin. Akiva, get a new best friend. Okay. So we do we like we we have a contest than basically we pick a new best friend from the contest to do want win. Well, just I don't know. What what what are you best friends stuff? You know, do more podcasts. I is that what best friends do with each other. I mean, that's the only thing I do. So. Okay. Robina some, but maybe we can corporate catfish like, maybe we're tricking them. They're not really our best friend. If they don't hear from us in it's because our device didn't work or gadget. It doesn't have texting capabilities. You don't want a new best friend if it was like some like. We're trying to cast some new podcast sidekick could do that. We could cast the podcast sidekick, we could make it into a whole reality show competition. Yeah. I mean that could be an episode. But you know, if it needs a little more. If someone wants to tidy that idea, I think there might be something on the Boehner Joe torso season through seven of unsolved mysteries and talked about this. Yeah. People listen people if you if the twenty people right in about on solve mysteries. Okay. Then maybe there's demand for it. You could see how many mysteries are no longer unsolved. And you could also I empty bags good old Bob stack yet. I believe that in if I recall in the previous conversation, we had I think I was into the idea. But I feel like that season. Three episode seven was literally unfunny right was. So it was murder stuff. You're right. You're right. Yeah. I'm I'm getting older. And I forgot so but I would be open to visiting season seven episode three. Ooh. That's now you're opening up a whole can of worms. We'll look at this show that we want to talk about and season. Three episode seven does not work but season seven episode three works. I think we should at least explore those. No, oh, yeah. It's not. It's not a bad idea. Like every show is going to have a season seven episode three true. That's for sure. Rachel boy says what about three's company facts of life or south park. Okay. South park. I think no I think that's also season. Three was still probably like cartman, Mary Satan. Three's company is interesting facts of life. I feel like not as much, but three's company is what is it about? I don't even know what the plot of three's company. Yes. Yes. So I can sort of Intuit Inc. Very debuted in that it is like a company with seven of south park is called cat orgy. Yeah. Like, a really was like a pushing a lot of boundaries in terms of like that it was a very racy show in terms of you know, when it was airing in the late seventies and early eighties. So it may be funny in terms of like what they were what they were trying to say in the episode. I don't know what the plot was. But the overall plot of three's company is that Jack tripper is a guy who can't afford his own apartment. I think and he ends up moving in with two women who I think are just like his friends, but his landlord of for whatever reason doesn't like the idea of a guy like I guess he thinks he's like he's like Jack tripper is like hooking up with two women. And he feels like that. That's really adequate. I think it's a different landlord at the Roper is in the earlier seasons. So he has to tell the landlord that he's gay because for some reason, then that's okay. If he lives with the two women if he's gay because it means that he's not having a relationship with them. So he has too often. Like, there's a lot of misunderstandings that happen. Basically the whole show is is a series of misunderstandings. And then, you know, his landlord thinks that you know, the one of the roommates is pregnant because that should one of them is like a cooking class in has a bun in the oven. And it's like one Chrissy as a bun in the oven. Okay. So it's all right. So you want to put that on we can put it on. Can we find three's company season? Three episode seven. It is a little bit of a flaw in the theory of sevens. That I don't sort of a check beforehand, but I think we could find anything I'm pretty sure we can end it. Also, maybe like horribly offensive by today's standards. Okay. I mean, but we could just call them out on that. Okay. We could take them to has agreed with as a great theme song. Okay. So season three episode seven original air date, October twenty fourth in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight four days after my birth. I don't know if that old crissy and the guru a glib guru dazzles Chrissy into following him into his commune. I like it already. So Chrissy and the guru. So Chris is like being taken off into a cult. Yeah. I think that we're pro called, Robin. Akiva, joining cult can be an RA episode. Also, maybe if different cults wanna recruit us, we're open Nixon needs new members. Chrissy is feeling down. Because she thinks that she doesn't have enough personality. She soon thinks her problems might be solved when she meets guru at the regal. Beagle. That's the bar that Jack tripper hangs out with who wants her to join the cult, Jack, and Jen and whoever are suspicious of the intention before Chrissy gets any deeper with guru's teachings, Jack and Janet attempt to expose the guru's true nature. I'm in all right. Fishbowl one more. And then we'll go to spend the wheel. This is for me. It is season. Three episode seven of the real world season. Three of the. Of the of the real world is maybe the most amazing season. Not like, yeah. In terms of on screen content. I'm torn between the real world too in the real world three is my favorite season. So I'm already I'm on board. Refresh my memory and what's going on. There will definitely go one season. Three most famously has pot who's the like the first villain in reality. Tv history. Yes, who gets hit out of the house Hedera Zamora who becomes the face of HIV in the United States. This is the real world San Francisco. Correct. Correct. Real world, San Francisco and dies, very soon. After the show if I remember, correct? I believe it was like. Yeah. Within like a couple days of like the final episode. Yes. Rachel campos. Who's now, she's kind of like a Fox News type person. Oh, he's married to Sean Duffy from from real or Boston, which I think was six you. Remember that was yet started to be a little off getting Sean. Is a congressman from Wisconsin. And they have each together. Well. Yes. It's like every every single person here has like an insane story. Two of the cast members Judd, Jewish guy and Pam Ling who was already a med student. Yeah. They got married married and are still married or doctors together. Yeah. Yeah. Mohammed was like it was like a rock band guy came in in the middle. Right. When they got no. Wasn't the focus of the season. But I think Joe comes in when. Remember, mama. What about John? Same real. That's that's that's too. I think and then Corey was sort of like the supposed to be the love interest with with Rachel. She was like when they choose the girl. No, Corey was a guy accord was a guy according to a girl. You're right where he was a girl it's been a while to get together. This is this is like a lot. I mean real world sees now it happens to be season. Three episode seven seems to be the most team and they used to twenty episodes back then. Yeah, why what's going on in the real world season? Three episode seven. It's called coffee and sympathy Corey Rachel payment. Puck discuss the frustration with their career and educational prospects. You can already tell this is like an old TV show because there would never be any career or educational prospects for anybody who's on the real world discuss as puck continues. Resolve is legal difficulty finds a stray dog takes it home. Of course, he's a man named Jeff. But he might not be right for her seems like a very tame episode. I mean, some of these are into the history of the real world who wanted to talk about the the whole real world. We can talk about this season in particular. I mean, there's episodes where it's like a guy's dying. You know, that seems like a very tame basic episode, but I'm into it. So I think if you're if you're with me real world and three's company and the fish bowl. And then we already added to the mail bag. Robin. Akiva have a conspiracy pod. Or whatever we're calling it and the price is right. Okay. All right. So at least right on the ping pong ball, three's company. We're up to like eighteen or so things in the ball. I'm gonna need a beer fishbowl soon. Okay. Well, the problem is like we go through these. So slowly. Yeah. That I don't know. Like, we could if we get up to episode five hundred like one of these will not have gotten called under the current cysts. Yeah. Well, I think that we assume like all right? We'll do it this way. And then you know, every like three or four episodes will be a season three episode seven. We we're through ten and the only three seven was perfect strangers was not by way of the pong. Yeah. Yes. Now this because for people don't know we add a ping pong ball every week to the season three episode seven total when we're spitting on the wheel. I believe this week. We have six is that right? Six basis for season three episode seven six spaces. So that is a big chunk of real estate on that. We'll play attitude. Also added to so I want to not add the new ones until next week. No, I will not. Why would we not as we're trying to stack the deck for season three episode sale? I don't think we're trying to stick to that. I saw I saw an Email. That said, hey, I think that we should get rid of season three episode seven they like the they like the shows that we've been doing. Okay. But it's a lot of pressure. Because interrupts the said, we'll just have to watch the show and talk about we've done that zillion times the other stuff it's like we have to create content. That's that's not so easy. Yeah. Okay. So let's let's quickly say with the wheel things are let's spin the wheel. All right. Let's let's go over what's on the wheel. All right. Oh, we also had we had a couple of things at the end the last one we had talked about putting leprechaun two on. I think we could wait a week or two for that. The other thing we discussed the very in the last week's episode is instead of Akiva choice in Rob's joys. That's now one thing called coin flip it could be to officially Greenland. That's Greenland Greenland it last week. It's a coin flip. But should it be two spots because it's unfair to know there's one spot now. Yeah. Okay. So Rob's choices gone. He has gone coin flip. And when that comes up, we flip a coin inside their rob picks or Akiva picks. But that's permanent permanently on the wheel. Now coin flip is a permanent spot on the wheel. Okay. That's fine. And it's three episode seven is now a weight of six six it's way to to six slots on the wheel. Wow. Okay. All right. So I'm not gonna come up. It's still under fifty percent. Okay. Still under fifty percent. Okay. So let me tell you about what's on the wheel right now on CSI New York, Yacht Catholic, I'll take that off the wheel to. Okay. Season three episode seven, which is now waited six spots on the wheel kids Joe's our trash. The coin flip the Oregon trail the rise and fall of JT Star Wars, which is going to be some retelling of the Star Wars saga to Akiba. The brand steel TV top fifty judging Junie the prices right and the conspiracy pod. Yeah. All right. I like the wheels very strong right now. We'll step like the nineteen ninety-five leandersson sitcom. Yeah. All right. So here we go kief the wheel is all set up and ready to go over thirty three percent of the wheel is now occupied by season three episode. Number seven. I think there's eleven things. But right, but then we'll then season three as six bucks. Okay. Are you ready? Okay. Here we go. I still got a fee toe that I'm thinking about both still have a veto years. Running out if we don't use if you don't use it, you lose it. Here's a carrying when he meant. Okay. I also think we have discussed maybe because only for a few months veto should be for like, Hugh, one YouTube you three and q four. All right. Like, ROY footlocker eve. Yeah. It is happened not season three seven seven spots next week. It must veto. It is came up the brand steel TV top fifth all people are going to be excited. People are going to like this. All right key, so pending, Mike blooms availability. Let's let's send them a message and see me we'll hear by the end of the podcast that he that he can or cannot do it. And then if whatever reason he says, this is a bad week for him. Then if Mike says he can't do it this week. Does that get us? Do we have to use a veto or do we have to? No, yeah. No. We don't have to do with that. We just have to do like, the live spin type thing. So we'll we'll do. Well, if he says before the end of this podcast, and we'll just do a respond here. Oh, sure. Yeah. If you could get back to us right now. And I can't imagine he's got anything better to do than like, the one of us or something. But yeah, if he doesn't get back to us. Yeah. Anyway. So all right, TV top fifty. Mike bloom will come up with the cast list that will be competing in a survivor. Season with the what is this the TV guide top fifty characters of all time. Yes. The TV guide top fifty characters of all time, you got real and fiction. I mean like cartoon and sort of you could have Jack Bauer on it. You could have Homer Simpson on the same on the same tribe. Lucy. Ricardo. So I think and also he gets to pick. Yeah. Most of it. We get a few. We got a few wildcard selections, but he'll do the picking for the most part are the tribes Rob's tribe versus a Keita's tribe. And then there's some also some some people that Mike is making sure in the mix. I think I I don't know. I think it's up tonight. I think he's sort of the ringleader knows how about this. Let me just pitch is three tribes season. Where it's a we put in our top twelve picks or whatever and RIA. I think that's brilliant. I think we draft the team. Yes. Rob's drive. Get six people will put it will make like Google doc will each will each draft. People will put in L figured out logistically afterwards, we will draft. Yeah. Six people each. And then yes, we then we'll have like a rooting injury. And we'll also put in a thousand dollars winner gets. Right. And if you have George Costanza one, George Costanza two on my list, he goes to your team because you had a meeting. Oh, yeah. They'll it'll be like the real NFL. Well, no, I think we should do a reply Email draft. Oh, I think we draft and you have to three men and three women, and then Mike get your fill out the other tribe with whatever he deems me you and Mike Mike is going to be involved in this draft. Oh, okay. I thought that he was on the right side of history where he's making sure Mike should maybe represent the people that should be there that are not necessarily saying. I think the draft is fun. I think it's a fun idea. We do it offline and just tell people afterwards because I it'll be so long emailed draft of the three times. Okay. And then they're know robs tribe. Mike strive, and it keeps us rhyme. I love it. Yes. And we'll have we'll have a major financial because people want us to gamble. Remember? We had the wheel. That's on the waiting room. So and Mike bloom famously a big gambler gambling any football game. Definitely knows. He's like fifty dollars a person. And then the winner. Baby. I don't want to spend his money I'm up for spending any absurd amount of money. But I don't want to spend Mike is doing us a favor and coming on the show. I don't want to spend the money that he could use unlike diapers in a few months without his permission. Then do we need like a fourth party who is sort of like the Price Waterhouse to set up the brain trust you. I think we trust you. All right. I don't think you're you're you're that type of guy. All right. All right. So I'm now I'm getting more excited but the draft. Yeah, I think this is a really good draft is fun. Yeah. I wish there was a way to make it more interactive. Like, maybe we do do on Twitter. I dunno or something. But you do it live. Now. I don't know. I don't know if we could do live because you already nervous there's going to be a four hour show. So I don't wanna do it. Do you want to do it on the air? What do you mean? Like do it as a podcast on the air, and you want to open the pot doing open the podcast with the draft. Where do you think that's too long? No, I don't wanna do the draft on the air. I wanna come wanted to go you'd has to be decided before. And it's got to be loaded and everything ready to got wrecked. So okay. So we could figure if maybe we'll think of a way to actually do the draft. But yeah, you next time you'll hear us. We will have the team sorted out the trip sorted out. And then they will play I like this. Now, I'm really to and I can record the video of the brand steel, and we could all be looking at the same thing. Okay. And find and for some reason, Mike not Mike not available. Then we will push this off into time. If my can't do it, but he can DRAM his tribe. I think that you and I can help them the ship. So well, no, I said why does he get the draft the tribe? If he can't do it. He'll come another episode. And we'll we'll get a third person or it'll just be me versus you. Okay. All right. Well, we'll work at the Mike boring. Details if we all right heave. All right. So we've got all that settled. Lemme take a moment. And thank our sponsor for this episode of the podcast, and those are friends over at bet, online dot AG and kiva. I got my clock cleaned in week number eleven. I think a lot of people. No, I think a lot of people. But I I place now out of reach for you. It's not out of reach because other people also debate because a lot of favorites lost. So what do you think that expression comes from? What why is it bad to have your clock cleaned? I don't know. I have I have fallen off a little bit. I mean currently in fourth place right now, I'm tied with Adam Corolla. I am three spots off the lead. Ross Tucker is currently out in front with thirty seven points in the podcast one sports net challenge. So not impossible to make up three points Roscoe. No, not at all. Yeah. Bad. We got I may have to go away from a ton of chalk picks when we get down to the final weeks to trust a couple risks in week sixteen seventeen have to risk it to get the biscuit. But I do have my picks in here for week. Number twelve. I am limited to only the thanksgiving or the sun. Games because of thanksgiving week. So makes sense. Okay. I do feel like we're gonna see a lot of people with the with the same with the same picks here going into a week number twelve. But yeah. Because there's only eleven games on Sunday. Although I assume you could pick the Monday night game. You only Sunday games only. Oh, so yeah. There's only eleven games that's wrong. So gimme the ravens hosting the raiders. Okay. That was that was an easy one. Give me the patriots at the jets patriots coming off a loss in a by. The jets are in the same situation. I feel like that Phil ballot. Check is really evil. He will like get Todd Bowles a win. So Todd Bowles has a chance to come back to the jets coach or he could be like so jealous of how many points were scored in the chiefs Rams game that he likes the patriots England outscored that those teams. Yeah. The jets lose one hundred ten they ask Bill Belichick. What were you thinking about? When you watch that Rams chiefs game. He's I was thinking about the jets. Yeah. He's thinking about how many I want to put up six to is like oh that play with work that play. Oh, they all were. I'm going to then also take the Steelers they're on the road at the Broncos. That bad and they're not Broncos. We, you know, the jets saw the Broncos look like they should be in like the MAC in college football. And since then the Broncos have been good, right? The chart. I mean, they they what they do this week. Maybe the chargers, right? Yes. The Broncos the Broncos have the okay, we're happy that we just gotta win. And the Steelers have also then the thing where they were lucky. They gotta win. So now and egg this week. It's like, yeah. But we shouldn't have one last week. So a lot of pressure on them. They're gonna win that division the Steelers. Yeah. All right. So I did take the Steelers. I'm with you in Chester on the colts. I high on unlock now, and I will take them hosting the dolphins. And then I took for the lock of the week for the second week in a row. The chargers even though that they blew it for me last week chargers hosting the cardinals. That's my lock of the week. Yeah. Luck that in a locked at him. But I kind of feel like that most of the other people are also going to have a lot of these same games. Maybe not the Steelers and the Broncos that might be the only one on on a limb on all right, Akiva, we are getting close to the nitty gritty here in this NFL season. Lot of big games going on Chicago to Detroit Washington. A Dallas Atlanta at New Orleans. We're all very exciting games. And by the time. You're listening to this podcast may or may not have happened. Great divisional match ups in college football, huge matchups with the rivalry game. Michigan versus of state Washington verses Washington state, Florida versus Florida state Notre Dame at USC. There's only one place to get on all the action, but online dot AG. Join any longer.

Wedding where you can participate on all the action with every play. But online dot AG your online sportsbook experts are king. What else I think? We're good. All right. So we were doing the snakes with fifty. TD guy. Top fifty top fifty. I will say because we're going to do gender. Equality? I think that the first of all Oscar the grouch is a man, right? I am not sure Oscar is research this week male name male name. But I don't know. I don't want to be overly much Norman. Definitely. Yeah. Kermit the frog. Definitely a man Homer Simpson. A man I ask her. I don't know. But also this list is light on women. So I think the like, you know, someone like Elaine Benes is just that also locked to get paid well together. I okay. Are there nine women in the yes, even more that aren't that much more? Am I is it like a jerky thing to say that we don't need gender equality just drafting we're just drafting they're barely nine women. Like, do we need Darlene from Roseanne to be cast? I don't know. What is this Arleen from Rosanna Arlene from the Connors? I mean, it's the same character. I don't know. Let's maybe consult with my with Mike on. Okay, find when will blame Mike people like, oh, I want to nine men and women when we'll just blame. Whatever makes -sition is Cory from the real world on the list. No Corey Corey of who's always on the challenge now was always hooking up with the ladies or forty from season. Three three. Yeah. No. Because there's a new Corey new new Korean town new Corey guy. No, I don't think there's any real world character on here. And like some of these like agent Dale Cooper from twin peaks if someone picks that one then that better be the first boot. Yeah. Nobody cares about agent Dale Cooper from been peaks. Okay. All right. We'll get into them pick Spock from Star Trek. We'll get into this more in terms of the top fifty. I don't know. I think I think we'll be I think we'll be okay is it unfair that Elaine has experienced from our fakes big brother season she coming in with an unfair advantage. Slightly slightly unfair. Okay. All right. So you SpongeBob squarepants. A man you probably is right. His name is Bob. His name is Bob. But I am not familiar enough with show me neither. Okay. All right. So Keiv are we going to load in the brand steel with like the characteristics of these different players? Like, I don't know if you the anti from sex in the city ends up getting cast will she Byung overly flirtatious in amorous with the show Mance. Okay. Absolutely. Like, Tony soprano was more likely to be like booted or violence or something. All right, so okay. Very fun. I can't wait for that next week. Now, I'm getting I'm getting more and more pumped up the more. We talk about it. Yeah. It's a good idea idea Omar coming maybe who knows? Yeah. Omar is definitely coming. I would be shocked. If Omar does not get cast. I think Omar Omar coming that would be great like and the winner of survivor, whatever, Omar then like, Omar like, you know, you got in the crowd. You have like a lot of people like this anyone come do. You think Omar has a lot of people in the when he wins survivor think some no like Bob's is Bob's there. I don't know. I don't know. All right. So a lot of fun stuff to talk about next time. If you haven't suggestions for the wheel need, a podcast at rob has a website dot com, and again, thanks so much to Martha and Alice for coming on and talking through all things Harry Potter with us Keiv. If people want to listen to the thirty two fans podcasts like I did at the movies the other day where can they go? Now, just Google thirty two fans or find for my Twitter, something thirty two fans podcast, and Akiva, I have some late breaking news here. Whoa. Dump whoa bomb. Some late. Breaking news.

You guys are getting all your guest episodes in a row. He sent me to say message. All right. So it's official next week. Brand steel TV top fifty maybe even a video. I don't know if we need to all be on camera. I think we could just record the actual. It'll be your voice over right? Yeah. I don't know need to see me. They could see you. Okay. All right. Phil. It's weird to just see me. I guess that would be weird. Yeah. All right. Great stuff. We'll talk to you guys. Next time. I.

You're running with the law all right well. My name is irma before got married. It was sculpted on calderon and i come from texas a small town <hes> suburb of corpus christi texas it was called ralph's down texas and our team name was rob soundcloud bigger because we had allowed cotton-growing around. I come from a very god fearing parents <hes> they were so strict very strict our to a parochial school school for seven years i was raised by my grandma and grandpa from mama site and that was because when i would go visit my momma my grandma and grandpa grandpa with my mom i always had more fun with my grandparents so little by little i started staying there and pretty soon our just live in there but <hes> my grandparents were very very strict and that that's what i did. There were so strict. I couldn't even go to the movies. He's or nothing like that. Found out. What pizza was at the age of twelve years old okay so you have any pizza essentially twelve years old earlier. I found out what a pizza was might be. I mean they were like they were from spain and it was like they had to ranches in when he was growing up. I thought everybody had cows. I told this to everybody because for real you when i was growing i would go to with my aunt with my grandfather to different places in it with my own goals and cousins and stuff and they all had cows black like well when i started growing up and found out that not everybody had cows and now like oh wow but i was very fortunate to have had that strict upbringing also because i learned a lot of respect for other people and it was just me at really had had no business getting into any problems because i had everything that i wanted is just my parents will show streak that never saw the other side and when when i did it was kinda like crazy you know what i mean but yeah went to parochial school that i went to high school like everybody else and it was totally different. I started meeting people in in my hometown. It was a ladder drugs. There was a lot of drugs a lot of pot a lot of heroin. It was nothing to see at thirteen-year-old shooting up heroin and this yeah this was back in the seventies. It was so bad. My father wasn't elected official. He was constable which is equal to the county county sheriff back home and he was elected on my god for thirty five years he actually died in office and was abell very very well respected man to where you had some of the guys that did something like killings and stuff like that because my hometown was known for stuff like that and turned himself into my father because my father would speak to them and stuff and he was very feared man you know accept his daughter in and then really and truly he was trying to help me out it just was strong headed <hes> and the the only reason that i started going that rachel was because <hes> my first boyfriend he was a drug dealer but being like i said i was so shelter from life and from real life that i really didn't know what dribbler look like or anything like like that and the guy would just walk me to the house and stuff and and that was it if i got home late in get a whipping in when i'm talking about weapon open. This were good old fashioned weapons with bell. Okay you go to school with bruises and everything in nowadays. You can't do that but anyway. This should be when you're living with your grandparents living with my grandparents because my my father still had control okay and and <hes> so <hes> one time my so-called boyfriend by word only really <hes> he went outta town and he got a killed so when at dowd <hes> my father told me that he didn't want his daughter going to drug dealers funeral anatoly and i told him all i wanted to do was just the freedom of respects. That's all i wanted and he told me no no and no and he's word was it. No i got upset knocked all william what where he left off that's run taking over and i really and truly i added an about face from the whole person that i was you know and i started meeting people and being a metric people at the right time back in the days and they really weren't the right people but in the world they were the right people and that's how i got started back up for a minute there because i mean that's it's you know to have you said you know boyfriend and name at the time. I don't know how serious you are. How how well you knew each other but to have somebody that you knew i. I assume generally pretty well to to die like that at that young age that had to be pretty traumatic for you it was it really was especially when it's like your first boyfriend. Now you got to understand. My father is very strict. Guy okay one time i asked him if that could the date is one guy just go to the movies and he told me no he actually did a background. Check this guy okay and because he had a ticket he came two her grandparents and gave me the whole readout you know and it now you so that's how strict he was you so i it was like so sheltered and i just wish that you know sometimes. I wish that they would have trusted me more and give me a little with more freedom. I don't think i would have turned out like this and it's almost like you were think you were rebelling against her four order hours rebelling against my dad. I did everything possible to get back at him and stuff but then later on you know we we started talking and stuff enough and <unk> grown up. My father actually gave me some good words in something that will always stick with me and all. He told me that he was no matter what he was proud of me. You know that the other person because i was very loyal person the even if i was in the wrong thing doing the wrong thing. I was loyal to whatever they can get. E always brought. My grandfather was brought us up that if if you give your word you better watch out because you're gonna have to back it up and that's how we were brought up. We were brought up old school will embarrass strip but bought so to that that loyalty um end up getting you in trouble you think in your loyalty to some of the <hes> nefarious characters that you were at that time yes and and back in them days it you didn't think of them as they were doing you anything wrong. They were mainly like my teachers and <hes> this <hes> the the people that are hung around there. Were no little peons that you would just know this word like the big time dope dealers this were that the bosses anna added a lotta sitting back and just listening to them talk going to meetings and listen to them talk and then they would add when we would leave. They would ask me what what did did you think about this in the end. They valued what i said because i was always listening if i didn't think that that other person was gonna be good for their a business i would. I would tell them and they believe me because i was always listening. I was just learning the wrong things but that's what i was doing right but still but still learning learning how to read people. Maybe that's that's really what it was you know and being from what the people that are hung around with and stuff and then not only that but also with my dad. I didn't even have a boyfriend okay. This is like nobody you the and they were scared. They were scared to make a move on you. Because you know all hell would break loose. Somebody would come back at them you you had your dad run a background checks on your friends so you get evolve with this crowd and you're learning from them. They're trusting austin you. There's i guess there's some loyalty their mutual respect. Maybe back and forth and what what's the. What's the next step. How did you get how did you end up getting getting tied up in a <hes> in this conspiracy. Well i after all this time i i wanted to leave. I wanted to start a new live live. I had a i had two kids. Two little baby step so i went to florida and there i met this one guy and he was a farmer armor and we just started like really and truly farming but he was also broke and i told him will. I know how to make money. You know l. and that's how we started then he started to win. I wanna just to get okay. You know pay everything whatever we could <unk> start making a live and then just leave the business. I didn't wanna do that. No more i wanted to settle down but he didn't want to he just kept on and on and on and in you know kinda like fourteen to do this forcing you to do that in because i was letting him run the whole business and stuff by that and and then things started happening in he got he knows like how they say you know they're they're hid got full of air sometimes you they think in their almighty and that and then this would happen instead of a taking care of what he was supposed to be taking care of it was just spending money left and right and just pretending to be all that you know <hes> star blake the sort of things he was invincible. Probably yes and you can't do that you know and so there was this one guy that didn't like him and stuff and he was trying to talk to me to for me to work with them <unk>. Just wouldn't you know i mean i. I didn't like this person while he got in trouble and he started turning people in turning the news and he started saying a lot of stuff that really wasn't true and some stuff was true but it was a combination and then they started getting more people involved in people that i didn't even no. It's like when i went to trial. It was some lady that i never knew what she was into a saying that i had you know twelve hundred pounds with this now looking at them like lou. The heck is this lady and how by like they that wait on me and they reduce her sentence. It's so did you you actually went to trial was to act trial to travel. They were offering me life. You know and i feel like i asked the attorney without what percentage your head that might win. He said one. I said well guess what i'm taking that one percent because they offered for jewish life life yeah it will over what were the charges against you at that time spiracy to possess with intent to distribute http like they didn't catch nothing. There was nothing that they caught. They caught money from other. People in the people said that it was mine. They cut pot from other people people. This eighty was mine at the very end. I mean some of it was but a lot of it wasn't in wasn't even like they caught to the middle of a of a deal of transaction or had you had. You sell do an undercover agent or something like that no they. They were investigating us for ten years and they never caught me with anything nothing but it was because it's a here say they will believe somebody and that's how they convict you on hearsay and that's what they got on on me but like i said i had done a lot of stuff and i think just you know it just cut cut up. I believe i mean i don't know like i said some of them people. I didn't even know but they're they're not gonna listen to you. You are guilty until proven innocent but then that's when they throw the conspiracy word at you. It doesn't matter conspiracy can be guilty uh-huh and that's how it works. They'll bring anybody to testify against you. In everybody went to court in from what we got <hes> a lot of the stuff that they brought up was not mine and instill. I took the worst time for everybody in may because i was also hispanic in-in-in analysis in a connecticut redneck country there so i mean annual what else to say ally noise big. They did that so what <hes> my husband that six years your husband got six years or my ex-husband because i had just gotten divorced okay. He got six years and then <hes> other other people that were involved a testified. They got two years some got six months. <hes> one of the cousins <hes> he got kin. He got twenty four years. Here's but then they testified and they got ten years and i mean i i got thirty years unbelievable and eh point in time was this was this was in the ninety s or multi ni- before so this is yeah. This is the height of the war on drugs right. How's the conspiracies for ten years from nineteen eighty four to nineteen eighty-four is what they gave it gave you thirty years. When you got out on october thirtieth twenty fifteen yeah i got out because of the <hes> the two points reduction when the sentencing commission met and they decided to lower the tables the weight they found out that they had tennis me excessively then because the they went over the the the the amount of time but only because they changed the law you in the end i had several opportunities to fight also like back to the grandeur coming to the supreme court and he knows a lot of those cases are very wide very very hard to get approved in an heard and my mike case was approved and i was supposed to answer back in like my paper scott lost right <unk> in prison. Nobody found out so time went by a and and i lost my case because i never got the papers this. This is just so sober so i wanna say unbelievable but it's not i believe because you know i hear stories like this all the time doing these interviews but it's just it never fails to just completely blow my mind. This is a completely non violent crime crime right. You're an accused of any violent acts or anything like that. This is just conspiracy to possess with intent to sell marijuana. I'm telling you i didn't do a lot out of the stuff. I did do but not for no life sentence or thirty years okay nothing for that. <hes> it's it's. It's completely completely linked to prison. I saw ladies there that had tons of heroin and it would get five years ten years now like i didn't understand the system. Some people had channels stations. They get two years and i'm like back. What what what do you mean you know like. I didn't even catch me with joint and i got thirty years and and that's the thing with <hes> with child molesters getting out early. Actually what am i. I guess they had in the show way back. She was a a <hes> regina huff nagel. I believe is her name and she was a corrections officer and she saw that happen so many times where there'd be non violent drug offenders with sentences ince's you know five six ten times longer than child molesters or people abusing children that she just one day quit like she's through your hands upset. Oh i can't i can't be a part of this. It's an and they brag about it. Then chow molesters them the women they would get it over there at outside like they would have this tree back in the days when you were able to smoke and stuff and then they made it to a federal buildings you couldn't smoke okay and get out there and actually talk about it and we would like get so upset. Some of us cut into trouble because we would night the answer to that because they would be talking about that. Yeah i would do that to the kids. In oh no on you lose it you lose it and you lose days over stupidity like that in prison and really they do that. Just i don't even know why they put them kind of people they are with some people that you know so they need to be placed somewhere else because if they brag about it you can react to it and you're gonna react and you know something happens which it's hard not out to react to that and then you end up getting in trouble and and nothing happens to them they're protect. It and it's something that's crazy and so i wanna turn turn back for just a minute here. So you get you get this sense. You're you're convicted. You know that you're serving. I can't say in how they do this. All the senses in months three hundred sixty four months. Nobody thinks in months but <hes> so essentially a thirty year sentence thirty thirty years four four months. Could you even wrap your what was your mindset at that time. But what were you thinking. Oh no i was like when the judge said santa's to three hundred sixty four months our like will i didn't hear life. You know that that's what i was already. I already said my kids. My kids were nine in eleven years old and i had already told him going to prison man probably for for life and all and when they said three hundred sixty four months out like the what what i select okay well thank you i said dan now. I went to the back in the put you in in one of the sales in the bag before they transfer you back to wherever you got to go and alike started added in aaron it up nestling. Oh my god that's derby years which called a little life in passing. I didn't get on no live in the mi- <unk> went back there and say oh. We're gonna appeal. Bub-bubba liked but what a lot of people don't understand is when you hire an attorney you hire that attorney to defend you at trial. Okay once at trial is over. That's it. That's it you don't have an attorney but a lot of people keep talking about but will my attorney him in a coma journey. That's gonna cost you more money unit. That's all it's gonna cost you. Your attorney already defended you though coming back back in the lead your family dry and that's what they try to do. I had to learn the law myself a little bit at a time because nobody knows your case better than you. Nobody that tourneys don't know they are only gonna know what you tell them and what they read which have the time is not even right what they read. You know unless you know your own story in batch what happened to me. I couldn't afford the appeals attorney but i the i was lucky that the one that i had helped me and we went to the supreme court and that's where they said that one one of mccoy defenders one hiss and they told me that they couldn't get help me because i had not testified against. Nobody didn't help help them any so they had to help will help them. And that's how it went down unbelievable <hes> so you so you. I've had that that one chance at the at the appeal you talk about the other time that your your paperwork got got misplaced. <hes> i guess twenty fifteen this was as i guess this was before. Maybe it was right around the same time. Yeah i guess it was <hes> when obama was granted all the commutations of asu i had found this one friend had gotten me an attorney and <hes> he this attorney told me you didn't charge me because of his his friend and he told me that he was going to check into my my records and stuff and see what was going on and being from. I'm the first day that i set foot in that prison. In the prison system. I started educating myself even though i couldn't get grants and stuff like that but i started bettering edwin myself and making changes for myself so i had a pretty good record and he said that writing on that that would probably help me and i'll descendancy sentencing changes that were happening. Just wait a minute because i was probably going to qualify for the two level reduction so really and truly i didn't i didn't thank was gonna go because we would hear about that throughout all the years and nothing ever happened so when it happened i got a letter from the <hes> the probation officers and stuff and they were telling me that qualified for the reduction so i en- contacted the attorney again in the attorney he said you know what don't even bother voting for a clemency although you would get it but you're going to get your sentence reduction and that will get you out adore. You can take the spot away from somebody else so we didn't file for clemency because we assume we would. I was going to get out with the to level level. Hey guys just wanna take a real quick break from today's show to tell you about a fantastic podcast cast that if for some reason you don't have it in your your podcast feed yet you need to add.

He's covering covering everything from foreign policy to the police state immigration politics libertarian theory history everything and anything in between some of the most interesting shows that i've heard it anywhere from any libertarian podcast and of course he's had myself and brian and mark on the show too so that helps guys be sure to check out and subscribe bribe to free man beyond the wall with pete raymond during your time in prison. You're serving this long sentence. You talked about you know one in educate yourself imbed yourself herself during during your time in prison <hes> was there anything that sticks out to you that stands out to you and your mind as you know something that really that you learned in prison or you know. Maybe some <hes> some wisdom that you got from another prisoner that really sorta helped. You helped you along the way it helps you to <hes> to shape your outlook to get through that time larry. Tell you over there in in the federal prison you you have allah ladies there were convicted for something or another and is like fraud or something and and that's what they we're good at and stuff so a lot of those ladies <hes> were very savvy with with their feel and they started teaching courses <unk> themselves so we had a lot of courses and programs that we could enlist and we had this this one <hes> officer a while he was a novelist who was i will call him a staff because he was higher than just regular correctional officer he with a professor and he got in charge of the education department there and he started pushing education to where a lot outta. The ladies were actually enrolling in the education department. Because that was the opportunity he would push you and he would make you wanna learn so we all started like getting more and more in baugh keven god like croak shane neediness into learning earning a that was a class that was learning because you were actually running. There's some people that are not book smart but can use their hands to to make make schoolwork. You know what i mean out here. In the free world they could make their living in the used at right now. Not all people are book smart smart you know but then you have all these other other ladies that were criminals they were teaching classes and they were teaching you right because that's what they did but but some of them would still you still had no access to computers and internet and stuff like that when i went to prison we had the fax machine machine. A fax machine was the big deal. I was so excited. I was going to buy me a fax machine. Well i went to prison and in the started talking about internet and i'm like oh what's that internet in internet and you would ask the staff would tell you a little bit about the internet is so you would get all excited and i just did neue oy with deep and when i come out i'm like lost. Them totally lost in that only because of that. I'd also had a lot of electrical. I took apprenticeship in electrical too where i had eight thousand hours and i was very proud of that. I took a new bottom who bother me i- dialysis courses nothing that you can practice some people because real real. I think that would have been fun but at in lettuce <hes> i mean we learned a lot medical assistant an arian role in all all of those classes because i wanted to better myself and you have like nurses and people that actually went to prison and they were like emergency emergency nurses than hit nurses and they did something wrong in their life and they end up in prison and they're teaching you everything about that so that when you get out you have some some kind of a skill but that time i started getting sick and a lot of the education that i had gotten a candlelight didn't help me a bit because i ended up a little bit on the i ended up getting sick and all the skills that i had i couldn't use them. I had to like back up a little bit too. Now i also did i thought leather classes for twenty two years also and i talked got to all walks of life of people and sometimes you even had the child molesters that want to take a class so you had to kinda like a set. Everything aside died in you have to teach this people a skill and i did that like <hes> oh my god how many hundreds of lady said graduated from our classes glasses me and another lady billy taylor. We did the the classes and this was all voluntary or you get volunteer. Everything thing was walling tear any any teacher or what we would call recall instructors. It didn't matter what you thought you were volunteered. You know nobody ever pay for anything and you didn't get no credit either a good dacian nothing like that you just did it out of the goodness of your heart and hopefully it would would help somebody else. That's how we the women do. That's amazing so did you move around during your time prisoner. Were you at at one facility the whole time in god. They moved me to california dublin california and that's where i'm mad at amy from amy can-do they now. I wanted to give a big shout to emmy can-do because she was one of those ladies they contacted me when i got moved to tallahassee and she told me she was going and start this nonprofit in about wanted to go ahead in you know get involved in it and stuff but i couldn't because <hes> <hes> there was a friend of hers that was involved in my case and i didn't trust amy at that time to later on then i found out that amy really was was for real in you know so then i get kinda like a baccarat and at owen another shutout touma league okay because you got a two awesome people that volunteer just like a lotta ladies in prison and they get things done and that's that's hard work man. That really is but i do one. I didn't wanna say thank you to those people because it helps other people to oh yeah yeah. I think it's it's it's is really important to point out the work that amien leaker doing along with everything that the candu foundation does a lot of people wouldn't even know we exist exist in prison in on that they don't. They don't know what we do. A lot of people think that we're you're in prison or you. Have your three meals a day. Do you have medical well. Let me tell you right quick. There's no medical there is medical but it's going to be far few insulated if you you have a good p._a. <hes> those are rare. You know because nowadays over there in federal prison if you are a c._e._o. Worked the federal prison and you have some kind of medical training. I don't care bitter a nurse's assistant that audited with change bedpans that is as medical feel can hire you as a practitioner okay and that's going to be you're going to be a scientist inmates under you and and that's where you're going to have a doctor so at the time. Most people are not real doctors. They don't know what they're doing and they do have rules rules and regulations and guidelines that they have to go by so all they are allowed really to give you our aspirins <hes> maybe antibiotics but then bad. They don't give those too much anymore but i will tell you what they do. Give out candy is the mets. They give segments like crazy over there there. There's people that stand in line for two hours just to get their meds and then what they do they'll go sell it and then you know there goes the circle again again and stuff but really and truly there is not much medical. I have witnessed people die because because of lack of medical attention inmate would help inmate because nobody wanted to help when you really sick and they think that you're pretending or yeah just pretending and they'll poke your eyes to see if you blink whatever he or something i mean that is disgusting discussing you know and we would just look at them like you can't tell them nothing because they'll put you in the shoe. The shoe is the whole and in libya for days for for running your mouth when you weren't supposed to what they say it. You had some pretty serious health issues while you were in prison right yeah style. I thought i had migraines okay. I had migrants for years and years and then finally he started getting like real bad to where i was like throwing up and then mastered it like going blind <hes> i it was bad and i would i would go to medical intel and please something is wrong with me. It would take my blood pressure. All it's a little high but you know probably oh because you you ran over here you know they would they would tell you something like that or are they would have. You sit in there you go in. Have you're sitting there for four hours before for anybody sees you by then everything all the symptoms that you have already done past. Your blood pressure has settled down. You're okay 'cause you're sitting sitting down drinking water or whatever and they see. You and there's nothing wrong with you. It took them nine years for them to finally start doing something for me. It is started with a little a little bb size of a pellet behind my ear and then he started getting be embiid and became a ball and they told me it was just assist that had you know like maybe greece or something you know oils and stuff like what kind of like bothered me a little bit noah still losing my vision and stuff like that so they finally gave a sonogram to shut me up and they found doubt that it was a hard mass so they sent me to a doctor and they cut it open and they said that it was a ball full. You know like a ball a full of capillaries all wrapped up and and that's all they told me that was will they patch me up again and stuff and i was still losing my sight titan. In then i had a gate patch where i would go work outside the gate and fix houses and stuff like i said i had electrical skills and i was good who'd doing maintenance and painting and plumbing and all that kind of stuff i mean i was. I actually really good at that and i would still get dizzy. I was <hes> drinking so much <hes> drinks you know just to to help me get energy and stuff like that and n nothing was working and finally one of the wardens dead out was working for <hes> told him look something's up. I need help so somehow the p._a. That i had recommended for me to get an m._r._i. When i got the m._r._i. They told only the the guy told me hey just go. Sit down to leave work in a more your doctor's gonna talk to you. Okay in all okay the when i got over there to the to the prison the p._a. The head honcho guy the big guy he actually met me outside the prison doors and he escorted me to his office. I knew something was bad then. He sat me down and he said i'll look. I want to show you what we have because because the m._r._i. Results went got their first before i even got back to the prison you know because that's how bad it was and they found out that i had three three brain aneurysms and they were giant ones. They weren't little one giant because of lack of medical help is is later is what i was told so that was in two thousand thirteen by two thousand fourteen. They started giving me surgeries in head to get like surgery. One was like in december and then i had to get another one in february because that's how bad <unk> which can elect hanging by a threat it got bad and on the second surgery i was fine hours fine and they some lady came to pick me up doc and from there. Ah don't remember they said when i got to prison i was bad. I was this really really bad toward. The one of the tennis told my friend go get me up is they hadn't checked me in and we're going to have pound and i was like out of towels totally out and at night. I was like real real sick. Where had this headache. That was out of this. It's like your head is getting crushed is were pulling out. They were out. I was bad sick so one of the old town officers offers that knew me because after you've been there for so many years they know you okay. You can grow with them. You know and the lady knew that if i told you that i was sick i was sick and g went ahead and they call the warden. Nick got the ambulance. I don't remember right in the ambulance. I don't remember much of anything and know that when when i was there they told me that i had bleeding on the brain and they would give me like so many hats cat scans it was it was crazy trying to see if the bleeding what's gonna stop or i was going to get the surgery in leading stop but <hes> i got cross cited a loss half of the feelings from my face my right side. I have <hes> rian in my ear all the time and my vision got better after seven months and they went ahead and did the other surgery that they had to do to help me correct but they said they had a they had too many they do coils but they do it coils else inside infield those aneurysms and that anna prolongs life to where they will rupture so i have so many coils inside my brain that <hes> that it numb half of my face and it's like a i forget stuff after that surgery act so get staff. I have to write things down. All my electrical skills went downhill because my doctor told me to get another skill because if i ever i like the wiring or something that guy to tighten a wire at could be hurting north or or you know hurting family or something they had a myers fire something like that in order to mean. I had to use a backup skill and i did is sewing but then when i when i got out message in front under the sewing machine <unk> threat it out was lost but the doctor candidate they talk to me and they had i have to tell me that you know i have to kind of write things down and and stuff. I haven't real good days and then i had like real bad days. If it rains i we'll get headaches. The doctor scared to go back in again in they have to go back in but they're scared because you know your your arteries have so many turns and stuff and they're scared to do more ruptured in more harm now than anything because i have so many wires in there i mean unloaded so would your last surgery always surgeries. Were while you were still in prison. There's nothing go ahead three surgeries in prison and then i had <hes> one more here in a in dayton when i got here because after a wild wow the coils they settle in started seeing cana- double again which i still do so now what i do is i sit down for a little while at wrist more but yeah that i i did get that but after after so many years that you know i had to do you definitely can't tell talking with you here. If you do have issues with your memory or something like that speaking with us. There's some things that i can remember so clear and then there's other things that i can't sometimes i'll. I'll have a something in my hand in an i'll lose is it in his in. I can't find it in that didn't go nowhere. You know what i mean. It's just indigent minority no sometimes i my daughter and my son told me see that just pushed the button mom on the phone. I locked myself out of the phone for two days and they couldn't figure it out okay. That's why i told you about computers of a computer my whole world just just just wrecks just shambles because i know that i'm going to have an issue might but my son bought me an embroidery machine that does digitizing and all that kind of because i loved i used to do embroidery and i can't figure it out because ah i write it down and then i can't find the information that i wrote down and then other days. I am real good. I can do the letters. I can do this and then the next day i can't remember annoyed. Did this was the second step in some little machines computers steps. You know step one step. Two you yeah yeah. I mean i mean especially even on top of that. Just even for somebody coming out to <hes> you know is this is one hundred percents <hes> just trying to adapt to the advanced technology. You're in prison for almost twenty years right. I mean that's incredible to to try to catch up. Oh my god i get i get so scary. I started shaking unlike kidding. You and i'm the obamas ellen like almost got on gladstone. Nobody's here. Why shouldn't we do do this stupid things and then they get google it mom or my god. I can't end that word sometimes because i get lost in the google to uh but i don't give up still try and find little avenues <unk> mix goodbye. Try more in that. Try more <unk> so that's kind of that's cool but it may tell you one thing <hes> this last surgery that i had the doctor put a whole bunch of more wires in there and when i woke up there was this weird thing that happened to me and it was right there still in the i._c._u. I see you that. I could remember like it was yesterday. What happened to me when when i got cross cited and stuff that i got real sick that i couldn't. I don't remember it was at that time. You can't remember when i got picked up from the hospital where pick me up. They didn't even put a seatbelt built on me and i think i fail in the van and hurt myself. Oh man because i was okay in the hospital little because they asked and the doctor asked me you were okay. What would happen you know and i i would. I would see things coming out of the wall. The doctor was writing everything because too many people survive after you have rupture like that and it kinda like seal itself but all this blood blood was in the in in your brain end in it was not it was not a good time. It was a very rough time and i also want to thank god right right now. <hes> god. I know you're in me. Thank god for allowing me to have a second chance because when you cross eyed it you can't eat. You can't be balanced you mean everything is downhill in the end the thing about it was next. Many of my family knew what was really going on. I know my my friends imprison with one that helped me. It wasn't a staff. It was the ladies there that helped me get live stuff and hopefully one day. I can tell thank you in because i have witnessed ascites me. I have witnessed so so many bad things. Evil thinks that that medical has done two ladies there for i mean there's no need for stuff like that. I just got lucky that i survived just an incredible story irma really a <hes> all that you've been through <hes> you know it's it's really it's really inspirational. <hes> i think it's racial to to anybody out there but in what you never give up you stay. They focused and you try to better yourself now that i have a different thinking because i know that i can't do a lot of the stuff that i did. I have have to do other things you know and to still in a make make yourself be worth. You know what i mean. <hes> uh-huh so yeah i do so we now. I tried to have good days and bad days. Sometimes sometimes the sewing mode you. You can't tell me nothing other days. I just have to sit down and just just looks to you know just take time and do good but i have a chihuahua woah. You know that's good and you you have <hes> two kids have to to have a daughter and a son. My daughter's voters in the military is in the air force which is fixing to go to afghanistan in october and my son is in corpus christi texas and he's an awesome dad. He's awesome. Yes i have. I have three grandkids. One is <hes> just graduated and i went to graduation and there was that i was going to be able to see him in graduate and i have two little rug rats yeah three and a four year old they are. They're awesome man ya yeah god gave me that chance to to seek grandkids. That'll keep young the little ones keeping young okay and whatever ah yeah but i'm very proud of my daughter you know i i know. My daughter has a ladder. We sent meant to me because they think that i picked eight drugs over them and i didn't is just i got mixed up in that candlelight difference before they were born and really and truly it was it was a hate to say this but it was kinda like good for me to have gone to prison because i believe i was grooming my daughter to be me you know and and it took prison to change me also and appreciate who i am the value. What did i have because i didn't think very good at myself back in those days you know and now i know what i'm worth even though i might have medical issues but i i am a better person than i was so who who raised your son and daughter when you went to prison okay my it started with my family and then i had my ex husband take care of my son and my daughter was raised by one of my neighbors neighbors which was one of my very good friends and that eighty didn't awesome awesome job. My kids are okay. They're good kids. That's great great yeah. Sometimes they get outta line you know but then i want to thank you so much for for coming on the show today and sharing your story <hes> i'm sure this is people who obviously have been to prison can relate to a lot of things when when you're talking about that experience but i think this is a powerful story even for people who haven't been to prison just to see all the obstacles that you've overcome <hes> <hes> throughout your journey here and still keeping a positive attitude and still learning new things so i just wanna wanna. Thank you for sharing that today with my audience. Thank you so much for having me and <hes> with that being said <hes> i i guess i kept a little longer than we talked about but <hes> thanks for coming on the show and thank you for having your show and making other people be aware of what's going on inside those walls and really <hes> if we really sit down and talk you would not like a lot of the stuff that goes on with some of the ladies that with health issues and i wish somebody would make it more known because there's a lot of <hes> death there that happened. I mean well. Maybe <hes> you you know i. I think that does need to be talked about. I think maybe i need to have an episode dedicated to that. Maybe if if you wanna come back on or i don't know who to who to get to speak to that. Maybe maybe a couple different guests could speak to one hundred percent agree with you that i've read the horror stories and that needs to light shined on it. Yes because a lot of people think the people here in the free world think that are they have medical dental. Now you're going to go to dental. We're gonna pull your teeth and you're gonna come out of prison without teeth that that's the that's all and it's just people back in the days. I guess prison or club fade how how they call it. That's when it was okay you know but nowadays no is prison is prison and some of their families are really real real bad and they just don't met their families know could they don't wanna worry them but prison really really is hill. I wish people would understand and not take it for granted rented. You have a loved one. Imprison drop align letter something i have because it's one of the loneliest and the lowest place is that anybody can ever go. It's dr one hundred percent agree or thank you so much for coming on today. Show okay. Thank thank you for you. Now you behavior. That is a wrap for today's show. I wanna thank irma allred for sharing her story. <hes> you know it's these stories no matter how many times record shows like this with people who have been a president who have just experienced hardships struggles medical issues the things that she had to overcome the obstacles that she's had to overcome with their health and everything else was serving a prison sense for non violent crime up selling a plant lance conspiring this plant and doing so much time two decades two decades more than two decades in prison or know about about up two decades just completely completely absurd and ridiculous that we live in society where things are starting turn <hes> things are getting a little bit better with regards to the selling of marijuana specifically and how that is criminalized long way to go but we are making taking a little bit of progress but when you hear a story like this about irma alrea all she's been all she had to go through the injustice. She really faced east <hes> when i talk about injustice i'm not talking about the legal sense. I'm just talking about how ridiculous overall looking at <hes> this case. She admitted that she broke the law and <hes> and did things wrong per the letter of the law but we look at things ethically morally. What did she do wrong. Who did she harm nobody. She didn't harm anybody and for that. She did twenty years in prison so i wanna thank irma once again for coming on the show and being so open so honest today. This show is <hes>. It's it's been a powerful powerful show and i know it's is going to help a lot of people and hopefully inspire a lot of people to know when they look at what irma's had to go through and how she still has as a positive outlook today <hes> when people look at their own life and obstacles they come across in their day to day can really lean on lean on this story and realized that you know you can you can get past that you can get through it. You can overcome it really you're most likely pale in comparison and to what irma allred came pad to overcome so i wanna thank you all for listening today. Just wanna drop a quick reminder.

One Dude who dress up like an injury kind of. Guys mouth. All BLACKMAR. He was Kim Gong ripping t. Rex's mouth and. Yeah. It was. Good and all but if you're just going to introduce couple characters just to kill them off like one. Zero no I'm not giving any specifics. You introduce some characters that kill them off immediately after just so that we can develop the plot a little bit gamma throws the debt, every season and game.

Hong Kong delays highly anticipated election

"Support for the world comes from hint water. Hint is water infused with fruit essences like watermelon and blackberry no sweeteners no calories in stores or delivered direct to your door from drink hint dot com hint water with a touch of true fruit flavor. Today on the World Hong Kong is doing what president trump would like to do postponing elections and the numbers are in and Europe's economy is reeling the silver lining. There's nowhere to go but up going from zero to something is already yet quite a positive result in the Bahamas bracing for a hurricane during a pandemic. What is that? Like it's just chaos it's just what you would expect I'm Marco Werman also today on the show pulling a Japanese version Columbia out of the crate for Latin dance parties it's my secret stealth weapon if I'm doing a tropical night somewhere of vinyl all of a sudden here's somebody singing in Japanese those stories and much more today here on the world. I'm Marco Werman misses the world. Glad you could make it here this Friday holding a democratic election during a global pandemic. Had you make sure it's safe free and fair, and that's a puzzle officials are wrestling with in a number of countries including here in the US yesterday President Trump tweeted that US elections should be postponed an idea that was quickly dismissed even by leaders in the Republican Party in authority -Tarian one party state. It's easier to delay an election and Hong Kong. That's what they decided today. The legislative elections scheduled for September, has been postponed by a year. Here's the world's Matthew Bell with more. The announcement came from Carrie Lam the highest ranking official in Hong Kong since. January this year, we have been fighting the virus together for seven months speaking through a white facemask Lamb said postponing the legislative election was the hardest decision she's had to make. But then we want to ensure fairness want to ensure public safety and health, and also to make sure that the elections are how and open fair and impartial manner. So this decision is therefore essential lamb went on to say that this has nothing to do with politics and nothing to do with. The likely outcome of the election but there have been signs that Beijing and its supporters in Hong Kong have plenty to worry about politically they have very fearful of losing control the legislative. Council Victoria Hoi is a professor of political science at the University of Notre Dame, she's also from Hong Kong. Hoi says, Beijing has taken a series of recent steps to quash democracy in the Chinese territory because only a day ago the authorities also disqualify twelve to democracy candidates from lending. A few days before that for young Hong Kong, activists, some of them. were, arrested for expressing views online that China doesn't like Hoi says, it's almost puzzling what Beijing is doing and you won that these moves would happen enough to miss sure that Beijing can control the legislature. Why would they have to double down just making sure essentially just to completely stifle the will of the people of Hong Kong Hong Kong's electoral system has always been tilted heavily in favour of pro-beijing candidates. But still when pro democratic political parties recently held the primary Hoy says there was a massive turnout despite warnings from the Chinese government. So this lodge of Papua support for the democracy Kennedy's in also in November. Last year the in District Council elections, the district councils don't really do much out of that. You know setting up building bridges and setting a bus stops in clearing garbage and stuff. But still there was overwhelming support in democracy voices. They won that landslide Beijing's very worried that this could happen. Again, postponing the election for a year gives the Chinese government more time to disqualify Moore opposition candidates says, Casey Wong he's a visual artist and university teacher in Hong Kong. Wong says it's also about using harsh new security law to prosecute those who dare to publicly defy the will of Beijing, what's going on in between these? Next months would be a lot of prosecutions. Wong says Hong Kong's experience offers a lesson for other countries for example, using pandemic as a as an excuse to to delay the election this can happen in America to or a in any country. So don't let it happen that said he points to Singapore and South Korea as examples of two countries that faced the challenge of holding democratic election during the coronavirus pandemic and both of them says, pulled it off successfully for the world I'm Matthew. Bell. Today US health leaders were back in the hot seat on Capitol Hill testifying before a House panel about the pandemic questions focused on getting schools open again and the possibility of a vaccine on the. Horizon. Director. Of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr Anthony Fauci. was asked about that vaccine timeline. We hope that as we get into the late fall and early winter we will have. In fact, a vaccine that we can say would be safe and effective one can never guarantee the safety effectiveness unless you do the trial but we are cautiously optimistic that this will be successful. Doctor. FAUCI was also asked why Europe has been doing a better job at containing the spread of this virus. You look at what happened in Europe when they shut down or lock down and went to. Place however you to describe it. They really did it to the tune of about ninety five plus percent of the country did that when you actually look at what we did even though we shut down even though it created a great deal of difficulty, we really functionally shut down only about fifty percent in the sense of the totality of the country. But the near total shutdown in Europe came with a heavy economic cost. The pandemic sent the euro-zone into a historic recession GDP across the European, Union economies is down more than twelve percent that's about three percent worse than the US some European countries like Spain and Portugal fared even worse than the average the world's ORLA Barry joins us from London. These figures are not good. ORLA were expected to be this bad. He has some economists were saying today the figures are dreadful but not unexpected. You have to remember in a sense Marco Weil right now, a lot of the focus on the ratio of the virus infections is in. The US and Brazil, and India there was a time you'll remember back in. March when we were talking about was actually in Spain and in effect this is what the figures are telling us today. Spain. And Italy Bulls had really bad infection rates and really bad fatality rates and Spain's GDP dropped by eighteen percent in just three months, which was by the way worse than was expected. What is behind that figure is a large portion about a drop in tourism. Actually, it's not all about tourism. What it is in a sense is reflective also the severity of the lockdown. So Spain's lockdown if you remember was particularly harsh particularly long. In Spain, many of those stories about the children napping allowed out of the house for months on end. If you look at France, for example, the lockdown, there was also considerably strict. You had to have a nose to leave the house and in France's case GDP is also dropped considerably. So that's kind of part of the story. Another thing to bear in mind is. that. Some of these countries are already going through the ringer effectively economically, Spain and Italy. Their economies weren't doing great and Italy now is heading into its fourth recession since two thousand eight. So the coronavirus pandemic was really the last thing that Lebron needed. Yes. Some real economic pain what about the third quarter then heading the fall is that expected to look any better? With the hope is that it will are some some would say, could it get any worse but things are pretty precarious France yesterday for example, recorded a fifty four percent increase in coronavirus cases in just one week, and then Poland recorded its highest number of cases ever yesterday. So we're seeing the real impact of the second wave as we've been talking about, but I did talk to Bert Core Line who's a senior economist with the Financial Institution I N G about this earlier and he was a little. More optimistic you're going to get almost an automatic large bounce back into third quarter because of the fact that stores have gone from being completely shut down factories completely shut down to starting production again. Now, if you look at that on a quarterly basis, going from zero to something is already yet quite the positive results but keep in mind that in Spain we've already seen reopenings of the economy being reversed at a local level because of new localized outbreaks of the virus, which means that of course you. Can expect at the third quarter will be some more pessimistic because of that just a week ago earlier, we heard about the huge EU fund that was agreed to to help. EU, countries deal with the economic fallout from the pandemic, a fund of Seven hundred, fifty, billion euros. It's about eight hundred, eighty, five, billion dollars. How will that help who's on the receiving end when he was the difficulty with the Fund Marco because the money actually doesn't start to be distributed until early next year. So that's relatively Late in terms of assisting countries that are in the dodgems ride now, but there is a positive side to this as bird choline explained to me earlier there is already some benefit that we get from the fact that the recovery fund has been announced because it does bring a lot of confidence to financial markets. So the message that the use ends brings trust with it that no country will be left behind, and that is definitely helpful even though the ECB already supressing interest rates quite significantly at the moment. Yeah tough times the world's oil. Berry in London. Thank you. Mark. The economic pain is ingest in Europe and Africa food prices are up crop yields are down. Tourism is virtually dead. For the next few minutes, we're going to hear how the downturn has affected migrant workers in South Africa John McDermott. The Africa correspondent for the Economist takes us there. In South Africa there are millions of migrants from other parts of Africa. Most of these people work in low paying jobs, they live hand-to-mouth. Whether as domestic workers, construction workers or in the hospitality sector. And naturally, the response to the pandemic has been very hard on them. A few weeks ago I went down to Hillbrow in Johannesburg where I met a domestic worker from Zimbabwe named Nassir such Schumer. Who told me just how difficult it's been to survive lockdown in the city And Waking, thing is. She told me that her employers a family from an affluent suburb in Johannesburg had stopped paying her monthly salary. Demanded they give me the normal pain but now this does sometimes give to it. Repaying them. In. Is. And when that happens, she doesn't have a proper income. How is she supposed to pay her bills? and. Far from alone in South Africa people who work in these low pay jobs are now going for months without pay and those that have gone back to work doing. So with fewer hours when I was in Hillbrow spoke to Bongani, MC one Manzi from Zimbabwe and Community of South Africa and he told me that there were implications beyond South Africa's borders because a lot of Zimbabweans are the main breadwinners for their families back home. People that they normally take care of all mono standard. And when They is truly fit hopeless that there's request reading. This African government has a nine various measures in response to the pandemic. But in the main is being one set of rules for South Africans and another set of rules for migrants. This is true whether we're talking is cash grants to help people get by all whether we're talking about which businesses targeted for closure. So migrant among shops intentions for example, have been disproportionately shut down by the government's pandemic regulations. When I was in Hell Brian I. witnessed an organization called the African Diaspora Forum handing out food parcels to migrants living in. South. Africa. One of its leaders a smelly man cold. Amir Shaykh told me that migrants are destitute and excluded from government help four many simply relying on charity. That's John McDermott in South Africa. Historic comes to us from the intelligence podcast from economists radio. The intelligence also includes a follow up conversation on migration with Robert Guest Foreign Editor of the magazine. The question they're asking once pandemic is over will the world become more or less restrictive for migrants overall I fear that the world is going to become more restrictive because of the. Pandemic. But there's a chance it went and one reason for thinking that is the some of the nationalist populist leaders who are most opposed to. `immigration have been shown to be incredibly incompetent in dealing with covid nineteen to hear more from Robert Guest on migration. Check out the intelligence podcast wherever you get your podcasts you're listening to the world. I'm Marco Werman your with the world. You may recall reports of a cluster of Corona virus infections that was traced to a choir rehearsal back in the spring more than fifty members of the squire the skagit county corral in Mount Vernon Washington were infected and what the CDC called a super spreader event two people died it was the first account but not the last Lincoln community transmission of the corona coronavirus with singing. But while most experts agree that singing in group is risky no studies have measured that Rick Scientifically Up to now Jonathan read is leading a research team at Bristol University. In the UK. Looking into virus transmission and singing a professor. First of all, many of us may not imagine singing to be lethal activities. So how serious is this? It's very difficult to answer that question my studies just have not been done. That's really where our study comes in. So far I'm studies have focused on, for example on speaking and looking at how the number of particles, how they increase as you speak louder but we just don't know the answer to that for singing at, and that's really what we're trying to assess in this study. So, what have you been measuring and how have you been doing it? So. We've had to do these measurements in in an Orthopedic Operating Theater, which has very very cleaner. So you can be certain. Every particle we measure actually comes from the perform with the singing or speaking. So, we've got a recording of your tests subjects. Professor, I see in the video that the singing is done through a funnel. Why is that? The Fun away is that why we saw the aerosol from someone singing into the very sensitive instruments that we have to count the number of particles that they're generating While so somebody's got a really good singing voice that women's singing happy birthday. Why pick that song for this test we've picked song just because it can be recited by. Singers instrumentalists and singers has a range of consonants and vowels. It provides a very good comparison across solarge cohort of participants how big a study is this, and how do you select your subjects? I mean like I said, she sounded pre talented. She was actually a very good I'm attorney. So we have participants from across a broad range of genres from Oprah Fruit to Soul Gospel, jazz pope, and in terms of instruments Wyndham Bras we studied twelve instruments from flute Piccolo Bassoon. Trumpet trombone and Chiba. So the case, I mentioned in the introduction the chorale in Washington state sixty one people they're more than fifty got sick. Apparently a lot of people attending were aware of what they had to do to stay safe. So how does singing compare with other activities in which people congregate even when those people are conscious of best health practices when we're concerned with apple transmission physical distancing doesn't really help. It's really about how well ventilated a rumors because he's aerosol particles can remain airborne for many minutes or thousand. So really they travel distances more than the one to two meters where accustomed to in physical distancing. Have you ever Sung in acquire professor. I sing a great deal hugely singer great dental, and I also play the trumpet. So I very much keen to really get to the results of this study as soon as we can as well like many amateur performance I am missing the opportunity to participate in music. Jonathan Reid is a professor of chemistry at Bristol. University. In the UK thank you very much telling about the study. Thank. Transportation across the globe trains, planes, cars, and buses. It's all slow down to a trickle during the pandemic Uganda's normally busy capital. Kampala has been eerily quiet under one of the strictest lockdowns. Africa. Now, Uganda is reopening and as the world's Halima condie reports, one group of drivers is breathing a huge sigh of relief. US, Madisha shot never set out to dry bodas. Those are essentially motorcycle-taxis that Ugandans us all the time in Kampala. They're often seemed to be more Boda bodas than cars on the streets and McGee. She says he made a decent living driving one than covid nineteen happened it. Does we suspended I was drinking fish much. We have been in lockdown Olmos Reich fool for months. Uganda imposed a strict lockdown on public transportation and Boda Bodas banned from the streets meaning thousands of drivers were suddenly out of work earlier this month, a group of Boda Boda drivers sued the government over the ban Mugisha says, he feels lucky at least he had some savings, but he and his family had to go on a tight budget. He has a wife and two kids. We didn't tell Monday by food for the brick I under. Trust Supper Budget the money that they had so that we can eat once in a day this week has brought some relief to build drivers like Mu Gisha on Monday they were allowed to resume taking passengers, which means after four months of no work drivers like new Gisha are finally back on the road. These days things are looking different for drivers and passengers who I put my face musk and it amid before I start the might trip I have fantasies, my customer he gives hand sanitizer to customers before and after each trip. But with many stores closed, there aren't as many customers before cove Ed Mu Gisha could earn about nineteen dollars on a good day. This week he's been earning less than five dollars a day things have changed and other ways to the government now requires voted drivers to record the names and numbers of their passengers Information Minister Judith. Naba Kuba explained. Why during a recent press conference? Details will help in following up, shoot any of the contacts test for Corbett nineteen. But what if customers don't want to give out their information to strangers, Apollo, Gaza another Boda Boda driver, and compal up says, that's been a big problem this week this thing they want to keep their privacy with yet telephone numbers but my personal customer, they have no problem with that but the customer gets underway most of them they don't I called up an old friend of mine to ask what he thought about the privacy concerns. Abraham. UNIN is a software developer in Kampala he recently created a new to ride hailing APP called good. It's like Uber for Bodas. It's one of the many ride hailing apps in Uganda these days he says getting people to register with these APPs. Could be a solution to both privacy and contact tracing concerns because the client is registered with the and the right has also registered with the. So all they have to do is yes, linkup on. Of course, they'll. They'll be information in the system of the trip and who did the trip and all that. So trucking that is easier in fact that Uganda government is now encouraging Boda drivers to register with ride hailing APPs but drivers Apollo Gaza still have the reservations he used to use a ride hailing APP but stopped he says, the tech companies are taking too big of a cut they. Charge. You a helmet today charge you a phone they charge you is nothing they can give. But again, the you fifteen central, all a tributary Buddha Buddha drivers and even regular taxi drivers have protested ride hailing apps over high fees and low wages in the past. But now with more options to choose from Mugabe says, he hopes to get a better deal. Overall, he says, the changes will help the industry become more organized for the world I'm Halima Condie. You're listening to the world. Sports are coming back. So are the fans. Not, physically they're replicating the atmosphere of the fans behind closed doors matches hot house sports. Broadcasters get the virtual bleachers going during a pandemic still ahead on the world. I'm Marco Werman. This is the world. We're a CO production of W. G. B. H. and P. R. X. In the Atlantic Ocean today Hurricane Azaleas has been lashing out at the southeastern Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos. Islands headed toward Florida battling strong and heavy squalls is being made even more difficult in a time of pandemic. It's simply not easy to stockpile supplies. and social distancing shelters nor is the race to rescue people. Eddie one has the Bahamas air and Sea Rescue Association Bosra in Grand Bahama, we caught up with him in Fort Lauderdale Florida what is happening on the ground in the Bahamas Eddie it sounds as though volunteers and others are going door to door getting people out from low lying areas. Yes. Michael Yes we. have been visiting a low-lying areas where trying to get some food and water in the light to hold them over for a few days. We're expecting this to Grand Bahama tomorrow night or Sunday morning early two o'clock in the morning, we're doing our best to prepare once again, move any cursing any. Area to either a shelter or higher ground to other family members or friends, and what is the expectation for Grand Bahama when the storm hits. So far right now, total chaos obviously bearing in mind that just some ten months ago Dory and pounded us in two and a half years before that matthew pounded US each one of them being a cat five. This one is going to hit us as a cat too. So it's you know well Yeah. No big deal wealth. No, that's not our attitudes and then during that word in a colder lockdown. In grand, Bahama right now in that a week ago, the prime minister put the island on a two week fourteen day twenty, four hour lockdown cue to the second surge of Koga that was rampant quite heavily in grand, Bahama yes. He's open the the hardware stores, the pharmacies the food store was in the lake yesterday to start preparing for this storm that's headed our way. Specifically, how has a pandemic complicated rescue missions presumably, you're wearing masks and gloves all doing the mark. P P is really important We're trying to follow the rules to the letter. It's just a second wave hit There's not a whole bunch of, but he can do about it. Other than pray to our good Lord because we are a Christian nation and of course, follow the rules you know social distancing the mass, the washing of the hands and more importantly right now starting to butts at home. But I think about stockpiling supplies, people seeking shelter where you're crowded I, mean talk about that what solutions are you able to come up with? Well the food store lines for one. Day stretch around the block right now. Oh my gosh. The hardware store, the lines they easily stretch for a couple of hundred yards. It's just chaos. Everybody is just in total panic and total chaos and where will they go for shelter? We have a couple of schools of church auditoriums that are on high ground and the unlikely. But unfortunate if we have another storm surge that they will be high enough and they will be safe. What are you hearing about? How Bahamians are holding up? Just emotionally he said that country's barely got over Hurricane Doreen a cat five hurricane devastated the region last September what have you heard? It's total panic. I've spoken with my office what I've three offices in. Freeport. Everybody's there were closed. Just the hardware store is the pharmacies where in our retail store cleaning chemicals and breaches, and whatever you know you might need immediately following the departure of the storm. I just don't know what to say apart from described as just total panic right now. Eddie. One Has Bahamas Air Sea Rescue Association Basra. He's helping prepare for Hurricane Xaus Eddie. Good. Luck. We're thinking of you hoping for a a weakening of the storm. Thank you Marco I appreciate your time Sir. It's been about a month. Now since Washington's football team scrapped their name, the decision seems to have caught on with sports teams in Cleveland and Edmonton Canada dropping or considering changing their racially insensitive names but England's leading rugby team is defined that trend. The world's Rupa Shenoy explains at matches, fans of the Exeter chiefs rugby team where headdresses performed Tomahawk chops and seeing this song. This is all encouraged by the team's mascot big chief who wears a headdress and carries the Tomahawk. He's kind of stump he and I it looks like A. Cartoon version of a native American Cross with a lap record that's Patrick Cox, a longtime editor and contributor to the world and Co host of the podcast subtitle. He grew up in the nineteen seventies where the Exeter chiefs have been based for one hundred and fifty years. Devon England I didn't even know the rugby club called the chiefs they were never refer to that way a was no. HOOPLA. Was No voice coming over the loudspeaker getting people to do the Tomahawk Chop there was nothing there was no association with native Americans that changed in the nineteen ninety s when rugby went professional, the Club rebranded taking on the native American. Imagery. Now, bars and restaurants near the Club Stadium Sandy. Park are named things like the Powell bar and the WIGWAM bar. Clubs. Is. Called the trading post all of that is coming under renewed scrutiny. Now, led by a group of fans called the Exeter chiefs for Change Eleanor Soper is one of its ten members who are not indigenous themselves but are backed by indigenous groups. I am not personally offended. By the branding is but I know that is racist on it is harmful than it reflects really badly on rugby as a sport but also on the current culture in the UK they started a petition calling on the club to rebrand. They're okay with keeping the name chiefs but suggest tying it to Celtic chiefs instead thousands have signed the petition. So says, the organizers have been doc St- threatened and abused online when you confront someone with something that they. Don't believe to the offensive or wrong and something that they have treasured very closely in themselves. If you tell them that what they are doing is wrong and that is racist people get back up. Immensely, the Exeter chiefs haven't spoken publicly on the issue but fans started a counter petition in support of the branding. They say it's a respectful tribute to native Americans then Ian Dunstan talk to it you can't trivialize this because what may have started offers cultural appropriation. HAS BEEN COOLED DOWN BY PEOPLE I'm probably rightly. So because we're more educated now, but the way that I think most the fans and people looking at it, it's actually cultural appreciation, which is a very, very different thing on Wednesday the club board met to consider both petitions. They decided not to change the branding a move that many fans have praised. The Exeter chiefs for Change Group says, they'll keep fighting. It's completely tone deaf it's really disappointing that they have phone away this shooting t to show itself as an inclusive club but the exeter chiefs are making one sacrifice. Their mascot big chief will be laid to rest for the world I'm Rupa Shenoy. You know what really bugs me here A guy walks into a bar. That that right there the fakey sound of canned laughter these days though if you're watching sports, you might not be able to escape canned crowd noise. So where are those cheers and jeers coming from? Here's the world's Bianca Hillier when German football teams, Dortmund, and Biron hit the for a match in May the crowd a seemingly went wild Milan alchemist commissioners go further them. Thanks. Thanks. Cheers there for the first goal of the game, well, I'll put cheers in air quotes. The stands were empty and the cheers were really can't applause being pumped out their stadium speakers. It's a bizarre but necessary reality as athletes returned to fields, courts and starting lines while fans stay home, take a listen to these two clips from Australia's National Rugby League. Here's how the play actually sounded links several keeping not a bad. What actually the? Absolutely. Superb at Rabaul kicks third, just the sounds of players and commentators there. Now here's what the same place sounded like on TV Lynch Scotrail kicked another bad. What actually the? Absolutely superb ball kicks. Crowd. Noise added there from previous match, which is a different approach from the English premier league and Spanish Lita who are using sounds from the video game afifa twenty like this crowd singing from the stamps. It kind of sounds real in South Africa sounding real has been top of mind for broadcasting giant Super Sport replicating the atmosphere for fans behind closed doors matches hot because South Africans have a very unique fan culture deshaun I do is the head of production operations at Supersport International. She says, their stadium culture isn't just chants and cheers it's the infamous vuvuzelas to. When football begins in south. Africa. Next week fans at home. We'll be hearing the booze. Ella and other game sounds from previous matches. We have audio samples for specific scenes. You'll penalties your fouls, the odds in the lose all your fans would react but generating instant reactions to ally football match isn't easy. All the NAICKER head of production content says, there's a game plan for that. Obviously, you need a very sharp and shoot up audio operator. So we decided to have two people one to control audio for cheering and the other ones were disappointment part. Of the fun of cheering though is feeling like you're a part of the action now that the logistics of getting teams back on the field are mostly figured out fan engagement is getting more attention. The Games are just not the same without fans. Brad. Roberts. Part of the based team behind an APP called my applause, which lets fans control which noises are blasted through stadium speakers. It's pretty simple. You download the APP and choose your team's upcoming match. Then it's time for your thumbs to do the talking when you download the APP, you have four options. Seeing. Whistle. The sound of the audience and this is fans reacting in real time that gets played through stadium speakers to the place can hear it in return that sound gets picked up by the television cameras and comes back through the television. The campaign manager of my applause says, they found that fans around the world cheer differently. For example, in this area, we receive the feedback that they do not boo there so much in the stadium and then they said, okay, we do not need the booth function there the whistling punch there we do something else in England if you don't have a bluer whistling that will be. Okay. The APP is not worth anything meaning Brits liked to trash talk fans have expressed nothing short of desperation for sports to reenter their lives. Some say bring on the enhanced audio others than gets distracting and disingenuous. So broadcasters have largely left it up to viewers to decide by offering one version of a game with artificial crowd noise and one version with the more silent stadium. For the world I'm being. Hillier. Win Historians Look back on this year twenty twenty. They'll pour through news coverage journals and diaries and art in the UK. Artists have been creating portraits of frontline healthcare workers as part of an online project called portrait's for NHS heroes. Joining me now is one artist Andrew Subject Jane cloudy a painter and Dr Georgina Cao's a doctor at Saint George's hospital they're both in London. Jane let me start with you as an artist what made you want to take part in the portrait's ranch as heroes project as lockdown started, we were all left floundering and trying to find meaning and and all the rest of it and the initiative was started by a fellow artist. Tom, crossed we had something on Thursday evenings a clap for NHS heroes and so tom decided on the back of that as an office. He could actually give a little bit of something back and. It's just a real. Way Of acknowledging frontline workers who were taking on more than their usual duties. During the height of the pandemic, you couldn't meet in person to do the portrait sittings you had to exchange reference photos instead. So Georgina talked to me about the photos you chose to send a Jane. One year in a bathtub holding your head in your hands. There's real vulnerability in your pose. What'd you choose image? I wanted to do one kind of reflected how I've been feeling about kind of everything that was going on at work and I wanted to be a bit more possible I mean. In Your scrubs in annual mosque I didn't want to be all covered up in a front. I wanted it to be how I felt. So you know away way the I relax was kind of having a boss at the end of the day not much else. We could do during lockdown describe that feeling. That was conjured up by the post by the gesture I guess it's just a release of ofter I mean, obviously, it was a completely different time that we are lacking in and lots of it was very new and not. So it was really sad so. Outgoing to walk every day but I was on my own. because. People I live with had left London, and of if you're working every day with coronavirus, you don't want anyone else at risk. So that was just something that felt on next I think maybe Clear they when you saw a doctor kilos photo, what was your reaction? Did it suggest any immediate emotions that you wanted to carry into your execution of the portrait? Well, honesty. When. I received children as images I actually cried because you know we'd met on zoom an seen the young doctor at the front and having to process quite a lot of grief. We will at during the height of the pandemic, trying to come to grips with this new normal and just just on a on a day to day basis I lives with had all been upended and. But as doctor having to face. A sort of virus that they didn't have the tool set Seattle was still unknown. They were still discovering every day on the news day. Announcing the death numbers and There's a lot of trauma there. So I was just really really grateful not. Joe Tina was you know so so we'll send tick and had chosen to Shea that vulnerability. So I felt incredibly humbled by that Georgina you recently had the opportunity to visit Jane Studio and see the painting. What was it like I thought really humbled. I mean someone. As talented as Jane to take the time to painting my portrait it just made me feel special, which is that she really nice actually to take something positive out of this whole experience has been. Really Nice thing. Jane the Artists What do you hope people take away from seeing this painting is a takeaway different from like your pre pandemic portraits. There's so many mental health issues at the moment around the pandemic but also. Around the fact that we got it and there's an online world shows the perfect image of someone to actually to actually create portrait that will perhaps give other people the ability to experience around emotions and to process you know get creates that. Space. I. Think I think humans always respond to an authentic image that in to have that dialogue. Jane Klatt Worthy is a figurative artist Georgina Khoza DR at Saint Georgia's in London. Jane recently completed a portrait of Georgina as part of the online project portraits for NHS heroes. That's the National Health Service of the UK Jane Georgina thank you both very much. Thank you thanks. Okay. Thank you. For months now, Japan and Hawaii have been in talks about forming a pandemic partnership ally total. Yukos. Halloween. See Dan I got all you bustle a promotional ad. They're encouraging Japanese tourism to the islands, Japan and Hawaii have a long travel history. So a travel bubble does make sense yesterday. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, gave the idea. The thumbs up Hawaii is the only us day to make Japan safe travel list. It would certainly give a boost to Hawaii's flagging economy. The states taken a huge hit after tourism and travel came to a grinding halt during the pandemic. An agreement with Japan is a step in the right direction as of March, Hawaii. Than Two, thousand reported cases of Covid, nineteen the only state that had fewer was Vermont. Then yesterday Hawaii's governor David Ige a drop this announcement. This is the first time that we've had and seen more than one hundred cases here in Hawaii This is a new record and we know that over the past week or so we have seen higher and higher record set. And the news from Japan also not good technical reports the highest covid nineteen cases in the country the majority of the young people it's from nighttime entertainment and there is a trend of infection within the family Singapore's CNA news they're reporting on a second wave of the corona virus in Japan. Japan recorded around fifteen hundred new infections today. That's the third straight day of record daily increases. Did He. Shed He. Knew I learned this week about the recent passing of Japanese soul singer Mieko Hirota. I got the news courtesy of a Latin music. AFICIONADO I. Know and follow on social. Media Pablo. Iglesias AKA DJ Bongo head public told me that Mieko, Hirota or MECO. As she was known had a multi decade career that one her fans around the world she also was. Singing jazz she even came to the US and sang at the Newport jazz vessel backed by billy Taylor's trio really cool numbers like this when she put out in nineteen, sixty, five with jazz legend Billie Taylor on piano attuned torme made popular for years earlier called I'm coming home. Baby. Miko gave her own words. Shall we say? He May. Stay hadn't. Doodoo better. Do. stood. Mika Harare there was some great support from billy. Taylor, does on the popular vocally style at the time no words but eight total groove, PABLO DJ Bongo, head came across her music a few years back because he's a Latin vinyl crate digger obsessive in a good way. Book Cozy Nando is just a fad collection of old Latin album cover art anyway over the years, Dj Bongo head has followed several Japanese deejays on Social Media Latin music has been popular in Japan since the end of world, War Two he told me the US occupation brought the records and the rhythm. The Japanese wanted more about the sixties and seventies a lot of Japanese artist started recording. Music so this Japanese DJ had forty five of this song debt Meka dead can be of love and I just I fell in love with it when I heard. took. With. Him Off. So I talked to the DJ and he helped me find my own copy. So it's my. Stealth weapon if I'm doing a tropical night somewhere vinyl all of a sudden here's somebody singing Japanese over the sloping beat. Lunar. And sometimes, I'll slow it down to India. Style, which is the Mexican Sunny. Soundsystem deejay style of taking forty five and playing really slow and putting some effects on it. Maybe to shout outs over and people just go not safety come back to the Dachshund I say, what was that? So that's a forty five that you play at thirty three and a third RPM? Miko sounds like a man there. What what do you do that Pablo? It makes it more mysterious and more funky and I those of us who are more challenged with dancing the faster tropical music in makes it easier There's been a lot of studies as far as the Riba how that culture in Mexico and the United States well There's a number of cases tropical music where people have played around with the speed, and it's usually to do with making the dancers more comfortable and also for the to put their own. I guess you'd say stamp on it turns. Slowing Down Kinda like Jamaican musicians did with Scott in the fifties and sixties too fast or some people are just like Bob Marley and Lee Scratch Perry slowed the beat down and Scott became reggae as Dibango head is doing here with the Meka track for robotic parties, deejays and Rebecca. It say an evening where there is communication between. The Dance Hall and they're. Far Away. Loved ones because. The DJ will speak over the microphone and talk over the music birthday. Request CETERA. With shouts to relatives and family and friends are sent via MP three to relatives in other countries that is wild a soul singer from Tokyo died this week but her legacy lives on slowed down in digital messages of love from the dance floors of the Americas. There is something poetic and beautiful about that. WE'RE GONNA sign off today with the other make attract we heard and here the late Mieko Harada at normal speed. Shadowed ideally new. Doing. Avenue. She's Coming home baby. It is Friday and we are at here from the Bill Harris Studio at W. G. B. H.. I'm Marco Werman, thanks for making it today.

What's in that to Sasha's of a sausage of some sort but he's got a certain texture and it can't you know it's not healthy healthy back Bacon? I don't even know what that means. It's bacon but it's different than American Bacon because it's better because everything things here. Everything here seems more intimate for some reason.

Oh so I'm at the airport and some guy comes running up to me and this is in. This is in the lounge where where he's supposed to kind of be cool. You know like just chill man man. We're in the lounge. We made it. We made it guy comes running up to me like Marc Maron and Mike yet and it turns out. He's the Rep from Schumer microphones just beside himself. Like oh man. I can't believe this is happening and Mike. What's up man? I love shure microphones. And they're like He. He says we know we all know. And I'm like I talk about that. Sm Seven Mike all the time. He's always believe me people come running up to me at H. Q.. Marriages it's seven. I can't shut up about the but I never asked you for anything I genuinely. I'm obsessed with those mics and the Mike I'm talking on right now is a is a Beta fifty eight and like I told him I said I got to fifty eight to fifty with me. He's like yeah we do too. Mike what are you doing podcast. Now they just have samples I guess but he gave me his card and they were just as he took a picture with me. I guess maybe they're going to hang it up in some sort of Hall Hall of fame at sure. HQ On the SM Seven Guy. Good mikes good podcast. Mike's yeah but they're expensive. They're real deal radio. Mike's whatever man I I I finish is things folks. We know that we know that boots. It changes inches over time. Think about it all the things we've been through together the fetish izing member the genes member that cast iron pans member. The boots Nand the MICS to. Yeah well stuff happening so that was exciting. But then uh we get on the plane and and I've been eating pretty healthy but like I thought maybe I could hold off one day but it didn't happen here just even on the plane you know now. I was a obsessing about my glasses because I have a new prescription and I don't know if they're right and I thought it would destroy my vacation and I thought it would ruin the vacation of the person I'm with which I've done many times in my life for one reason or another my. I'm not seeing quite properly. Were thought it's stupid. There's nothing I can do to correct this situation. I can't get a new pair of glasses. I shouldn't have changed lens before I left. I was pretty obsessed about it and it was sleepytime and everybody was dozing off off. I was watching a movie eating the bad dinner the chicken and then like the desert options came in a Mike. I don't want dessert. You want a cheese plate. Wait or ice cream caramel crunch ice cream. Well I guess I just bringing the cheese play and I don't eat that much cheese but I sat there obsessing about how my glasses we're gonNA ruin my life. I had the cheese plate. fucking shoveled cheese in my face airplane. She's not even fucking quality. Cheese presented his quality cheese. But it's not even if you're in first class and then after that I might fuck it man. I can't see this is stupid. Cloudy Ice Cream too so you brought the ice cream it's fucking eight that and and I went to sweep kind of kind of swept on the plane which you do. And I'm laying there and a massive amount of turbulence. Let's wait me up and we're interviewing we're over water which I don't love and the turbulence happening but I'm not moving. There's nothing you can do in the thoughts. Come you know is position. I WANNA die in. Should I be sitting up. Will they find me the same way at the bottom of the sea reclining or would I like to be upright when that happens just gross in white and decomposed strapped in. Don't WANNA be lying down for that at the bottom of the ocean or do I want to be sitting up for that. I decided decided to stay light down. I stayed laying down and I started thinking like well. This might be happening in this series dips going on and I'm not gonNA sit up for it but then the the other thought came like this might be and Kinda glad eight the ice cream. I think that was a good call. You know if I'm going down the the terrorist starts screaming starts the like all around you. Do you want to be in the middle of that thinking why. Why not eat that ice cream? Why did and I eat it? And that may be like trying to judge how much time you have before you hit the water and die like could you somehow manage to get to the flight attendant area to get an ice cream bike. Everyone's freaking out. We're going to die. We're GONNA die and you're thinking like is that ice cream still frozen. How do they keep it frozen on here? Is there a way I can get it. Just chaos everywhere. Oxygen Mask is dropping people in different angles of recline screaming. But you're just just sitting there like somehow managing in a trailing spiraling plane to be eating small glass one scoop ice cream not even Sunday situation but we made it but I at least occupy my brain in a healthy way.

I've avoided it every time I've come here but I've kind of thought I wanted one and I realize I even if I never wear it anywhere at at home. I'm wearing it here. I'm going to be that guy and I got one and it's not. I don't think it's a cheesy thing to do. I mean this the tweed they make it here and you wear it on your head. I mean I ah you know and I'm old now. It's an old man tat. Old Man's cap matches. My old man had all right. Look Lili Taylor. I love her and you know we all have loved her at some point in time and she's done some great work and I. I was happy to talk to her. She's a unique person intense intense. This is me talking to Lily Taylor. she's going to be in this. Perry remains in this remake of Perry Mason. HBO That's going to be out next year. But I think she just dropped by to chat. I remember when you were going to do this a while back a long time ago. Yes yeah a few times really. Yeah getting fucked up and I really don't have anything to promote and that's okay right yes okay okay wonderful yes sure I do. I talk liked to talk all right. I prefer that over over promoting stick in. I don't know something but I don't know what you're who I interviewed earlier. This Guy Rick Baker. Do you know Rick Baker that the makeup artist who did all of them. He's done everything the thing was it fun to kind of wild. I mean I don't know anything about that stuff. We love those guys and women but played one a makeup artist doubt. I just remember with Robert Down. Yeah we did make up on me. He was an aspiring. He was the guy that was learning how to make. That's right and he took a picture of you dead and he did it on me right like you're like you're pretending to be dead right right. Yeah that was in Shortcuts Right Oh Bob yes that was a I. It's weird that movie. 'cause I love that movie and I like him and for some reason. I'm the only one who interpreted that movie as a celebration of the human spirit here it really well you need to find more like minded friends. Well I mean star car carver. But it's dark but that the connections and that we're all sort moving among each other right but it was like every story was there was not too many great stories in that way that's true. What was that guy like Altman? I've talked to a few you people bound. There's not that many people that know him but I've talked to a few. I loved Altman. He was just one of those really special men and you just new why he was one of the best director he sort of was like this master puppeteer. Yeah but you didn't see controlling anything right just easing in and out in and out because that movie was that was a later one right. I mean he was. It was after the player who was after he was sort of rice comeback. Whatever that means right and down used a US like a kid then that was before the problems was it? Well I knew he was having some problems and we were doing that was clear because he had already been down. Saturday night live. I think right and had it done some. You heard stories about him doing crazy things in New York yet. Downey was having a nice time. I think it was probably still working. Actually at that point for you're right you're right. It was still fun. Yeah Party was still a fun thing to be at. It certainly didn't didn't keep going that way is is he a great example that it ain't over till it's over you don't give up hope it ain't over until you've made all the money in the world. That's his story. Yeah things things got bad and now he's back he's made all the money possible to make and show you where did you. Where'd you come from the how outside Chicago Midwest really your full on Mid West family? You don't I always associate you the east coast sensibility. Because I moved there in eighty gates. I've been there I'm not sound Chicago. I know but I can go back there fast and that was pretty fast fast. Yeah but I love I love I always knew I wanted to in New York but I like I like the city itself. Yeah because I. I wanted to be a theater actress and I knew knew I wanted to. I just knew I loved Chicago but it wasn't quite enough. I also was a pretty great. It's fantastic but I also felt a little unusual well and I felt like New York. There was more room for me New York right sure. Yeah so did you start in Chicago did you like. What's you come from a big as a family man? Six six kids Catholic. No just the white kids. I don't know I always ask that anyone anytime that someone says there's more than four kids in a family wait. I assume it's Jesus Related Yeah. No it's not I don't know what was going on. What's your younger brother? And I were surprises. So so Yeah you know. My Dad was Complicated he was mentally ill. He had a AMAC depression and alcoholism but in the sixties when they didn't really know what it was when it was just angry and sad exactly a drunk exactly eh when they discovered before they discovered lithium he was getting shock treatments but lithium but then alcohol negates lithium so he was self medicating needing help depressive. Do I know yeah I do. My Dad was a bipolar. And he is I mean he. He kind of. He keeps switching up his diagnosis. So now which is a very bipolar thing to do now. I guess but he hasn't had any I don't know if he's on medicine right now. Our weapon the profound depressions haven't been I haven't they haven't had them lately or he's keeping him away from me. I'm not hearing about it. He used to go manic depressive. Both like there is like long periods of just sort of white. They get that look in their eye where they're just sort of sad and like that kind of lonesome dead look in their eye the worst ooh and then he gets sick and spend a lot of money make some bad decisions. Yeah well we share something very unique thing to have a parent who's diplomatic word. I'm trying to yeah. No it is yeah I mean I know yeah because a lot of times it gets. You know. There's plenty of people with alcoholic parents yet. I've talked to that may be the near the offspring of bipolar people. Yeah so you so he was well into it by the time you were born. Then he was yeah he went into the hospital euros born really. Yeah that's when he had his big break actually so he was well into it but nobody knew what it was and then he had his break the year here I was born. What what? How did that manifest? Well you know I think it originally manifested as severe depression but then it worked into severe veer mania. He would go into the you know we had to tell the Cadillac dealerships. Please brats L. Taylor becoming there in a few minutes. Please don't sell a car to him. There was this Goto thing cadillac cat with a cadillac. Yeah Pianos a house. A how house. Wow House and he didn't cash so they had had to move so my poor mom was like. Oh it happened so you moved. Yeah I was out of the House by then pour ma did on her own or that was after uh-huh he he stayed at it did he did. And then we did an intervention on hinder. So excited when they do things though aren't they. They're thrilled and put. Why isn't everyone else's thrilled as you look at this thing I couldn't afford and you've got the audacity to not be? Yeah God ruin everything. Yeah Yeah so uh-huh cadillacs when you were around in the house. When he left yet house when I left jazz? He's still around. He isn't but you know we did an intervention on Hanaa which which it worked And they look. He stopped drinking or to give medication. Both dual diagnosis. That's the key is he'd never gone to a dual diagnosis. The treats both the alcoholism and the mental illness. Because they didn't have them that they they didn't there weren't a lot of them but it wasn't something that was thought out like and so anyway we got him into that place and he did much better after that he he would. He would drink vanilla extract and have as little moments of You know to kill on the side but for the most part he didn't drink he hit a fine. I don't care but he didn't drink and he died a somewhat happy man and somewhat dry. Yeah soon medicated. Yeah Depakote Depakote was on that. Yeah Yeah that worked for him My Dad tries. He tried to all kinds of things. I don't know if he ever leveled off on anything and then he would get obsessed with side effects and talk themselves himself out of it and then when they get mad they stop taking it. They're really tough bunch to treat. Yeah for what you just said all those little things you just. That's the problem now. You No it's I think. What's knocking my dad? Down a bit age. He's eighty I don't know even if he's manic. I don't know what kind of what he has to do in that much money anymore. So I think the damage damage is limited. so He seems alright. Where is he He's in New Mexico. Where did you go up New Mexico but I mean there from Jersey? I'm Genetically Jersey and they are in Florida. My Dad's New Mexico New Mexico Albuquerque. Love it you do. Yeah I love it have saw spot for part me to You know now that it's become this hub of entertainment. Yeah it's amazing. How many people have shitty experiences there? Because it's not the same as when I grew up there. Yeah what's IT GONNA beat. Up is a bit of a drug problem nowadays. Yeah and it was it always it always. They had relatively high crime rate. But I didn't know that stuff growing up to northern New Mexico which is pretty but now I go back and it's a little beat up. It is but I appreciate that in relation to Santa Fe. I I prefer the little rougher on the irs about how lot because I did yeah. I filmed Maze runner Chambers I think even a season of of films like three things there through spend hard time there and I really like it. Where did you go now or now? I'm GonNa play like where'd you go to go to frontier ever. Oh God Yeah Oh God yeah yeah. Love Frontier. That was one of my favorite. I grew up in that rest. I'm sure you did and it still going strong. It's amazing love it. Yeah when I was in high school we used to drive there. Meet their spend hours. They're drinking coffee because it just what it used to be open to like. There was a period. There was open all night and then started. Open 'til like later but we just sit sit there and it's I bet it's good. It's the same right inch the I go. I'll get waivers from Gerald Green Chili stew. Is it there though. Sweet Rolls I. I never ate them much. But people like him Green Chili. That's what it's all about so okay so you're in Chicago there. Sixty you the second youngest. Yeah and there's four. Is everyone good. Yeah all your feelings are you. Yeah Yeah Ah I mean. We share a bond because of the mental illness. Do you have your siblings. And we said well. Yeah right siblings I do. I have a younger brother. Okay Okay and he's all right. We're we're pretty we're out of like there's not much distance between US okay. You know emotionally. Psychologically but I don't know what what's the age difference between you and the oldest. That's the thing yeah. My oldest brother is thirteen years older than me so he was like this weird guy. He's like a weird guy who who was like. WHO's older guy right around the house like so by the time you were like ten? Oh he was long. God Oh long. Gone yeah. He left when I was five so I was like. Who's that Guy Patty? His name is party but I didn't know him. Other older brother was just like a cool. Older brother was like took you on motorcycle rides and and then my sister. It was fantastic and she was a dancer and my other sister. We had a foster sister they brought in somebody before he broke down and then my younger brothers out here. He's a locations Gallia. Yeah Wow and I'm close to my family and a lot of ways and yeah and then sometimes not there. It's weird because 'cause I always ask people about their families and I always assume that everyone I you know you. You're only as close as you make an effort to be and there's some people that are like I always talk my brother my sister but some people yeah. I talked to him occasionally. Yeah just because your siblings like I don't really talk to my two older brothers right and Dan. I don't know why they're older and you don't. They're older and I don't know why but if they called I'd say hey sure why you're not not talking the one I'm not talking okay. That's okay though. Because he's drinking drinking really. Yeah you got to do the heavy al-anon that's okay tach with love. I don't have a problem with it. Yeah so some some of them got the we got the flu. Some of US got the flu. The flu yeah did you. Yeah you got it. Oh Oh yeah Oh yeah Oh yeah how bad you know. I always thought bipolar the alcohol. Oh Yeah I always thought. Do you have the Flu Korea. Twenty Years Without the because thirty twenty nine twenty nine. That's a good thing I do. The thing the thing. How am you might not see any at the thing? I've probably seen in New York. I know but I got sober New York probably an extrovert. Right I guess yeah. I'm an introvert. So those movies. Excuse me meetings were little little too much. It's something man. Yeah not feel like a Weirdo. And then they have that dance. I barely could do dance dance once a year and it was I can't do it. Can't do the total sober fund. Thank you know. It's so great. Is that there's so many other people are probably having the same thing. Oh Oh yeah and a lot. We're dancing but I know a ladder. Like what the hell do this I. Well Yeah but some people were like. Let's just embrace it but I'm like this. There's part of me this. This is a little L. Sad because we're overcompensating exactly but I I talk about it pretty freely on the thing. 'cause I it changed my brain somehow. Yeah Yeah when did you get sober. Twenty nine older. You I know exact- I was young. I thought I was probably twenty four. I got sober ninety one. I I thought I was going to end up on a Barstool pall malls and chip nail Polish. I thought I was GONNA go that way like at forty. It didn't happen that way it it happened I was I went. I got a friend said. Do you WanNa come see some chamber music with me. I said okay. Fine I'll I'll go. This is a New York. Yes they're working again drink movie. I've done three. You've done through euro so this is like right at the kind of original peak of your Indie Star nece not even I had done not even started. started the indies because everyone left New York when I came early eight and the indy started around. Maybe it was maybe ninety two ninety three probably known. And that's what you would call the indies. Yeah I guess so why. I mean like witch. Would you consider the indies. Well because like by like dogfight I guess that wasn't Indie. But that was warner brothers. But I but she. She has studio telling her what to do so I wouldn't. That didn't in India to meet an independent pizza. No Way no commercial all the way. Yeah Oh yeah so. That's sort of the middle. Then the indies. So she's having having a baby mystic pizza and say anything those big studio movie studios and you've done others exactly. I done done those my Oh my dream was to always come to New York to do a play with a little bit of money in my pocket. Yeah so I got to play at the public theater in What did he see by Richard Foreman? Oh that those were crazy. Play a lot of things going on like a dream fucking great things going on every but not a story everything but a story going on yes as soon as the reviewers said the there was plexiglass across the whole stage and he said it was there to prevent the audience from strangling the actor. Simon Simon of that awful reviewer where you get simonize if he or your payroll remember. That guy's comedy Shay. Yeah Theater Heated theater well. It seemed like form and actually took residency at a theatre later. I mean he was. He didn't have his own. Yeah you're onto logical historical society area name Second Avenue Right. Yeah but this was at the public yet. Last time he worked at A. That's right. They were in that I was in it and it was just perfect. So where'd you. Where'd you do your training and Chicago? I got kicked out of Goodman of DePaul. Which is it's a conservatory? Where's that Chicago had a good one? Yeah good what's it called good enough to Paul. I don't know anyone else. WHO's no one's mentioned that before I think think Riley went there John? Yeah he went. There had some good ones. It's it's it's the Midwest version of juilliard but the Midwest Carnegie Mellon Juilliard. Exactly one of the League schools. Yeah and you got kicked out dead for. Here's the thing is i. It was GONNA do a TV show. That would elastic. One day of work. You're not supposed to work professionally at these things right. I had gotten the approval from everybody except my one acting teacher. Who Said No? I'm not GonNa let you go. I said well I'm filming tomorrow. And everyone else has said okay because you know what we don't like your attitude. I said you know what I don't like your attitude. He said you know what you don't come back to this. I said You I'm not gonNA come back to this goal. I hung up and that was it that was that was done. What how long you've been there for months? Oh man wasn't for me You know I did feel that. They felt my spirit getting kind of knocked down a bit. Yeah and maybe just wasn't the right fit. Yeah well I mean I. I wonder why because he seemed kind of Present and You know kind of lit up so sensitive so there. It seems like people that have that type of personality get beat up by people like that. That's it that's that's it that's it you're moving through the world to open and they're gonNA shut you down. I like to think that's what happened but I felt like there was that I wasn't trainable. ainable or you see. You can't do anything right but thank you. I like that take better. I like your take. Why excitable people especially people with this system? It just seems names that there are some people that just do people say and they're kind of like go along this the the system. Then there's incredibly you know gifted people who are you you know. Somehow they they they treat like Like aliens landed in there so special and then they're just open sensitive people that just really WANNA try. Those are the people that they seem to take the shit out. Yeah yeah yeah black sheep. Yeah Yeah but so it was probably better off but was that the only training you had was that four months I don't know I studied with the pins the piven theatre choppy. So you've probably heard them right. Jeremy's parents Jeremy's parents of the was an improvisation nation right where it was gained Theater Games they were kind of famous. They were like del close level. I I actually studied with Dell you did. I did it I lived. I lived above the Blues Bar and I lived across from Burton's place. Did you ever perform in Chicago as a comedian. Not In the younger days. No I've gone back. I was just at the Vic I've shot especially with the VIC and I've done I've done zanies but I I didn't know that Improv world though small theater worlds but since I've I've I've done films with Swartberg I go there. What like you know I've been there? I was there during the heyday. Yeah and I wasn't an Improv. But del close was hired me when I was still in high school actually and He took me under his wing and he let me take his workshops and he brought me into the the Herald. Yeah well that's Improv. Yeah I know and I was awful awful because I learned theatre games. I'm not an Improv. Yeah I'm not. I like Games. Theater Games funny. The enough she kate veal Bolan visit the other school. Exactly the PIPKINS VIOLA SPALLINA. I believe worked with second city. uh-huh so she comes from that background but what she developed these theater games that help get you out of your head and basically into joy really elite joy kind of did she frame like that. No that's how I kind of think of it is pleasant. Okay getting into the the moment human example like Let's see one of the theater. Games is Someone sits on a cube in the middle and they've got one person on either side of them and and when when I'm talking to the person on my right I've got a totally engage and know exactly what she's saying and then the person on my left talks I gotta turn to him but the one on my right keeps talking talking and I have to go back to her and continue the conversation. Okay so I've got to be totally alive to both and yet naked both listening so listening. That's what a lot of the the exercises are not written. It's improvised it's improvised. You're giving like who. What when and where right? But you're not trying to be funny of yet through you're saying you do improvise but not with the need to be exactly with all these other people who are controlling be funny and that that was just killing me. I kinda fled New York because I was in that in New York or Chicago Chicago partly because I was in this comedian world. beat up on all there we go again. NBA for Lilly. Yeah she's sensitive and open with all these monsters wanted to be funny. I I would go around with Jeff on In New York well. He's so loud. I Know Jeff I would go with Jeff on his comedy nights in New York. Did you know him. Chicago did and then he moved to New York and I was in New York and then I would go with him. Sets sure talk to Oh yeah. He'll headsets before he goes on. He's like I don't write anything appointments. Right Jeff maybe I write a few things. Why not write a few things he still does it? You Know Ah himself on going on stage without anything prepared. Okay doesn't work sometimes del close. Did you weren't anything from Dell or did you just work for him. He seemed a heavy cat. Yeah what do you mean by heavy cat. Disliking had his problems problems. But like when. He's he's seen as a real sort of Buddha of the whole improv thing. I mean like he spawned you know that what is it. Long-form Warm Herald is. Isn't that his thing. And a lot of the people that are around today off shoots offshoots of Del Upright Citizens Brigade. Ah like he because a lot of the comedy world today is is based in Chicago Sketching Improv. As opposed to stand end up you know a lot of them define what comedy is now a lot of them come from that world. They all revere Dell but I know he had addiction problems and he you know oh he was sort of an intense guy and he was sort of like somehow stuck in in being this guru. Yeah but there was a failure element to him exactly. Actually I think that's I was getting all of that. I knew he was a genius. I knew stay with this guy as long as you can. All men like. He's one of those just stay. You'll learn but he He would have rages. You know I didn't WANNA I didn't WANNA do anything wrong. Felt like home. It felt like the other problem with people like us who come from that is like we're just GONNA walk right in with any fucking lunatic that starts yelling at us. It's like Okay Dad. Yeah I have that too late now. Did you know Kenny shops in. Did you know that. Okay all right I know I I know both sides of the these sort of boundary lists emotional erratic dynamic how you can't take me years to get out from under. I know how. How do you fifty six fifty at a thought you were about their? Yeah fifty two. It's Nice I mean it's you know whatever getting old is a lot of things but but it's nice to have gotten through some things. Oh my God. So you're you're there with the with the genius yelling occasionally with Dell. Yeah there with Dow knowing I was with greatness knowing I wasn't an improper to get the hell out of this world right So I went to New York and You earn things you like the the piven in school I loved. I love joy seven. She was my teacher and it helped it helped. And I'm I'm curious. I learned from books. I sent myself to Carnegie Mellon for Summer Program when I was sixteen. Yeah Yeah Yeah So. I sent my would always investigate and an investigator to do acting in in highschool to did did you discuss did they did. I did great very strong acting school program. Yeah so you get to New York were you just sort of like I'm here in New York or did you know people depots did well. I did the Mary. Tyler Moore for sure through the hat in the air. My son the lower east side Blessed village village. Yeah I kinda settled there. I was about to Lori side and then Kenny shops in the crazy restaurant guy Famous restaurant I was about to move over there. He goes. I don't want you moving over over there and yell to the restaurant. Does anybody hear of a sublet for her. I don't want and then someone said Oh I do. Yeah right on. Saint Luke's right off of eighth eighth seventh and eighth. Ah Right near Morton. Yeah Yeah Clarkson and so I moved there. Oh that's kind of Nice. It's almost like it's west West right there. Yeah yea that's the block. That's photographed postcards right right with the Brownstone. Yeah that's it that's really so that was okay. I'm living here west side with the junkies in want me there to dicey. Yeah well the door. The there was a little slot on the parliament. I was going to rent to put in the little packages of things. Yeah in the business. Yeah the package business. Here's the money. Give me that thing. Yeah and that's where I lived on second between A and B. Oh Wow oh yeah in eighty nine. Oh you're in it. Oh Yeah what we lucky to still get some of that. I guess so I mean you know I'm I'm I get nostalgic. Ah I romanticized that time. But it's like as you get older. It's hard to argue like. Was that better I I do know that there was. It seemed that there was At that time a more thriving thing art scene on all levels music theater a comedy to a certain degree the poetry scene like there was still that way crashing wave gave a performance art. There was still like people who who didn't have money could afford to live here and I think once that went away the vitality and the insanity of what drove of all that stuff kind of went away. That's that's what I miss. Yeah that's what I miss. Yeah but it was exciting to be like you know heroin land. Just not my bag. No I didn't do it but I lived right in the middle of it. I understood it. Yeah but you probably wouldn't last very long if he has no. I tried it in my bag. Like Coke uh-huh pot. Yeah and then. Heroines made me sweaty and tired sick. I never tried it. I always thought and shoot it. I just did because at that time in the late eighties it was high grade. C could just do it and I literally live next to a heroin supermarket and I was sober there. I the first time I got sober as eighty eight so I go through these year and a half periods you know and and I would watch him and I was sober by. Wasn't doing the thing junkies every day. I just thought it was so sad. And that can change on a dime you just one day you like what is going on in that doorway. How could he go from like? This is a tragedy to their onto. Something yeah little. Turn of the Moon. Yup Actually I didn't stick thank God. Yeah it was just made me nauseous but What was your thing? Just boost food pretty much. I mean a little bit cocaine a little bit but mostly mostly booze and pot so so you get to New York. You're not on you're not on the east side. You're not you're getting fucked up. Yeah Yeah but quietly like I didn't want anyone to know I was an alcoholic but you knew. Oh ooh I knew I knew from you know I I. I was in one of my journals. In highschool sprawled across the page. Was Your Alcoholic really. Yeah and then I started to make little things with myself like if I drank like in my early twenties I would have to write. I would have to type two new al Qaeda John Bali Cornell ask type of work did you find yourself. Did you romanticize it like. I'm an alcoholic artists. No I'm I'm okay. No No. I was very ashamed and so I would almost like do penance. Like if I am not religious but if I was going to drink than I would have to dialogue dialogue alcohol. So that's not much fun. I wasn't having a lot of fun right. You know right because doing it alone. Yeah and I guess I was trying to get conscious of of it. I mean I was speeding up my bottom what I was doing well. That's good yeah. I don't I don't regret it. I got here much earlier than I thought you. He had a long time. You got sober. So when do you start working. How does that start to unfold there in New York? I was already working and so I already the I when he got there. Yeah because I'd already done. The movies came into play. You do the movies out of Chicago. Yeah yeah well they were Chicago movies real. No it's because my friends with cusack and all those guys okay. So that was it and so I- who are the other those guys. Oh John cusack Jeremy piven Steve Pink. DVD's scientists spoon spoon spoon. Spoon E. G. Okay Yeah So they're all still in Chicago. Yeah no kidding. Yeah Yeah and we had an agent we all have the same agent it and then we came out to la to work with the actors gang. Tim Robbins Right and I got mystic pizza when I was out here visiting the agent with all the boys okay and then went back to Chicago. Did Miss Visa came back. Then we'd say anything with all the boys right came out to La went back to Chicago. And then maybe one more Moore movie and then I moved to New York so that was yeah. 'cause I see like I don't know you friends with those guys still Not really but like if I see them I know we would all get along very different people now. You know the I mean it's it's sort of amazing that they all hang out too because I can't see Kuzak and and piven hanging out at this point now you know I don't know but But when I can't remember Oh I do remember you and for born on the fourth July did where. Where'd you cast out of of stone? He came to New York and I met with him on that one over stone. Yeah Wow yeah intense. It was actually actually. It was interesting. He he was a real asshole and I was found. No kidding you know surprise surprise and it was hot it was like one hundred degrees. I I was like. You know what man I don't need to be here I I. I'm here to you know and I guess I got the part of that. You know he was. You know clearly you could see he. He just was damaged by the war. I really that was your sense yet. Because that was pretty early on. He'd done a couple of other movies by them but yeah ah that was pretty early on still. Yeah that that must have been well. That's a pretty intense movie. Yeah it is right. There's a couple of moments in that movie. They're kind of mind blowing. I despite whatever ever Oliver's knee I e put together a hell of a movie. Yeah I you know what I mean. I agree and Tom Cruise is really good because it's good. When he has something to focus on? I think the wheelchair was a good if tom can like hang off things or like if he has thing you're right he needs an object he does. Yeah that's a good point you know it's funny doing pushups as a Ron Ron Kovic. Yeah I just wanted to say. Don't maybe don't do those pushups shops. Maybe just sit in the chair Just maybe a little bit you know. Yeah but I don't think he can. No He's kind of a you. Know despite all the weirdness he's this kind of an amazing thing that guy agree the last movie is when I was Kinda like you're on another level dude which one one the mission where he really was close to death mission impossible and and while you're on another level dude. Yeah he's he he certainly doesn't want to get old. You know what I mean. Yeah I saw that one where he played the pilot and the drug thing. That was kind of a good movie. It didn't do anything though I forget what it was excellent. Actually I missed it. I was pretty good I I did hear like he was one of those movies like. Why didn't how Tom Cruise movie not make any sort of a dent? It usually anytime you ask that. It's usually because the ending isn't isn't is dark. Any big actor movie a lot of them that don't go anywhere it's because he ending his People don't like that they don't WanNa see interesting. You know what I mean. Suck but other times when they're good and they don't catch on. Why and that's interesting? Yeah it's it's a lot lot of times it's because of the fucking interesting dogfight. I kind of knew when that happened because Anthony Clark was a comedian. Oh of course and that was a big deal that comedians. In that moment words he got a movie. Reel movie now. It's like my God. What happened maker? I don't either. He was I was on TV forever. I actually got high with him because I was still using During dogfight that was my me and my last movie using yes and I actually got high with him. That's for but rivers problem was so pronounced then even. Oh yeah alcohol real alcohol. Then it wasn't he hadn't gotten into the heroin yet but I knew that that poor guy had it bad. That was such those kind of a heavy movie I know and especially with the river like it was. He was so uncomfortable playing military. When you could just feel hip all over and you could just feel it in Joaquin? At that point he was leaf. That was his name and his all of his Frayne and all of his family was around and and came within it to what Keane was just always around around relief and you just saw this family that was like they're hippies and children of God children of God he's playing a frigging me military. We Guy Marine read it all right right. He did but enough offset he was a mess with killing him. It was it was it was is no look. I mean this disease. It just doesn't discriminate. No kidding and what happened to that director. I was looking at some stuff. And there's like when you're in the independence at first as for wearing the first wave of independence right. I was in when they weren't really being seen and they weren't that cool right. It was sort word of that period with like Jarmusch those people in a in A. What's Abel Ferrara? The addiction with Abelardo. Yeah God that guy was like notorious. If you're in Rudy too. I know I was still living in Chicago. No I went back to Chicago to do a play. Joyce piven and I was draft driving over the Notre Dame after the show to rudy driving back to play. I don't know what the hell I was doing rudy. That movie I know there's some rudy fans out there. Rudy is one of those movies that everybody knows I know but so when well what would you say is the first Movie of those independent period. Because you did I did yes. You did another movie with With all men didn't then he do credit poortere Credit Forte Predator Morte. Yeah Yeah there's a weird movie was awful. He was in the worst mood and see it. No it's he was miserable miserable Mrs Parker and the vicious circle that was nude off. I did that because of shortcuts and Alan Rudolph and and Alan Rudolph's smart writer. Yeah right and director in like an apartment Guy Right he did choose me with the Iraq. Lee Member was such a special movie back and he was like Altman Guy Guy Right. That's very close right. Same producers same by what happened to that guy. I don't know I don't know what that was my point. Is I like what happened into a lot of these directors from that particular period because like a lot of times these indie directors of this. The last wave of indies. Yeah within two movies are directing the marvel all movies. Yeah and they get works now it is sort of like in back then like they kind of play themselves out but okay so what. What would you consider the first of those movies? He's the addiction for me. No one household Saint God Almighty it might have been the addiction. How fold thanks? No that was an indie again. That's the studio. The addiction wasn't the Tarare was but of course. Ed Can you expect anything but oh my God that was yeah well the first time we met. Somehow he wanted to meet me. I went over to his fantastic apartment in In the flat iron an elevator that he had to ride one of those chain things can handle and we go up and he's pulling out his neck and he's like you know you know he just probably did some. I'm crazy right before I got there. And he's like yeah. Yeah so like Yeah you you're to some good stuff. While he had a wine glass in his hand. The wine glass tipped just enough so that the wind didn't pour out and he fell asleep. And I and that was our meeting and I said able. Hey I'm GONNA I'm GONNA go now. I got the part you got the part and I would go over to. His little part is his apartment and he would do it he was doing doing in one room and I would go in the other room because I had never TV. I video machine 'CAUSE I was like looking at things like I had the I found this great nature documentary about lions. NSF deyb this. This reminds me of when all the vampires are killing. We all kind of love that love that love love it so I would just come over there and I would think of things and work on things and he denied the ruined like neglected child. I would just say Bye Dad later I go back. Coleman felt totally normal. Yeah I did love him though. Not Past Ten. I was just GonNa actually work with him. I would work with able to in the second second really because he's so creative interesting guy right. He's he's creative he really is so that was the that was a real indie. That was fantastic. And then do all right. Oh Oh no as we were making it. He's like okay. We got five guys in the back of the Angelica glasses on and then like after the first week. He's like okay. We got four guys left. Yeah we we had nobody left. It was fine. We you know is so frigging out there. He do. He's like look it's black and white. No one's GonNa see this Then went in. And did the valley sloppiness which is so great independent. That was a big movie for you. It was huge for me. It was because for me it was like it was huge in terms of collaboration. Also like I collaborated with with Mary. Harron there was nothing. Nothing written about Valerie Solanas. She did all this research so together. We kind of found out who she was. I just loved it. We were in new. ORC quite handy. Oh Jared Jared Harris and so I WANNA make sure we know we're talking about I shot Andy Shot Andy Warhol and that was like you were you you were the one I was the one. Yeah and great actors to you work with. Oh Yeah I just interviewed Dorf. He's fucking great. He's great great. I know we just did something something. Leather face version story to the chainsaw massacre you guys did. Yeah I think through into the pigs. Yeah I had my son's throw him into the pigs and finish them up. Yeah Yeah Martha Plumpton. I've talked to as well all of you jared. I talked two years ago. That was a great movie. I know Mary Harron so talented her. She's still I was actually just GonNa do something with their. Oh yeah but I couldn't make the dates work. She's still at it. I think what we're seeing with a lot of these directors that we're seeing in the first wave are so independent that You know they they do is their own thing. Yep Yep I it is and they stick with it and try you know. It's it's hard to realize that sometimes people aren't gunning for the type of success that you associate with. Have you know wanting to do like sometimes people independent filmmakers you who I've worked with. They get studio opportunities and they realized like I don't WanNa do that. Have No control be sold out and you'll have to compromise whatever vision or not even even or just be a pawn in this bigger gain so they wait and they do what they wanted to your exactly and sometimes it's worth it so you know it's like it's weird. If like if you make one amazing thing movie that you people never forget no matter what your life is or how you might think of it. That movie sort of stays sure. It's there forever this hopefully if they transfer for it was there that's been a problem actually streaming well in terms otherwise the life of the celluloid archive is saying to me. You you gotTA watch the secrets. You'll know there's only one print left of X.. Oriels Girls Town Girls Town. That was that was I think my first independent and and that was we did that like Mike Lee Style were improper a year and then yeah and then we did it and then we shot it in fourteen days all on donations. Nations Maybe a hundred thousand dollars the movie. I don't remember if I saw. It's really have you lately. I have because like if people wanNA show some ice things or something. I always recommended McKay. He's that he's the director. He's a great director. He asks for it to be shown or a special one. It's special. Yeah that was my first independent so okay and now at that time I just remember there was a whole kind of I'm almost a community of people around like it was like everybody had left New York right when I got there because something has changed with the unions and everyone when was leaving and but a few stayed in the ones that stayed the independence right and that was the community that started to form A. who were they in your mind? Well well Christine. Vashon of course films Abel Ferrara. Jim McKay up. Oh Ted hope from Good machine on Upped the actors. God the actors Hope Davis Eddie Falco Stanley Tucci. John Toro All The New Yorker all the New Yorkers we all and a lot of us do theater Marcia Gay Harden of course soprano people were were guys. I mean my compare. Oleander come out with the before. He did Sopranos guys dated. We did we did we. Yeah we yeah. He's talked to him lately with the book I heard it's great. It's pretty good book. It's nice it's like a young adults book Komo Mike like he's up north somewhere you know. He's a Buddhist. That's what I hear you just kind of hanging out. He came down and was thrilled. I read the whole book. I liked it. You know it was like a coming of age. Teenagers Story and Lou Reed's character. Of course. Of course. Of course he is and you know Mike was also an I shot Andy Warhol he so he was in his element. Because we were in the sixties the production design was so good and actually Lou Reed was very upset. We were making the movie which was yeah. Did you get to meet Liu no eat well. Oh I've met him sometimes in the rural areas but He was very angry and Valerie solanas in that the movies being made and you want her to be elevated. Exactly exactly exactly because if that happens with those kinda stories you know where the people that were really there and it was horrible you know. Why would you draw attention to that person was? She's still alive to no. I don't think we could've made it. She would have killed us. You know what I mean paranoid schizophrenic. I wouldn't want her around locked up though Yeah but then she she got out. She died homeless in San Francisco. No kidding yeah I know so like what was the so so the reason why she killed was because she was loosening gets a frantic man they make sense of things in a way that only they understand exactly which we're seeing a lot on the right. Now Yeah Hey yeah. There's a sort of intentional paranoid. Schizophrenia goes good good analogy so you'd never got you never worked with harmony. Corinne no younger than US right. Yeah exactly the next general exactly. Yeah and then he had his whole little crew. You know any mostly did stuff with younger. People like close veins so she was younger than me or something. Yeah what does she do. I see I see her pictures a lot at what she does. Yeah yeah she's got clothing line right. She does fashion stuff and an act. I don't know her I never met her so like But you never seemed to stop working. Well that's true. Isn't that true. Yeah and that's like you now like this working so what happened with the. What was it this? This is this water under the bridge. Oh wait a minute are you bringing up something about a guy who I talked to really. Wow I don't don't take tweak it personally I'm not I'm not. Oh I'm not you mean you talk to them on the show Ya lot. No I had him on once. Okay and and I see him around now. He's doing comedy again. Yeah Yeah Yeah. It seems like it's still seemed pretty volatile pretty fresh. Yeah I guess so. It's while ago right it it is. Yeah yeah it was devastating. It was a hard one. That was a hard one. Yeah Yeah we don't have to talk about it. We haven't even mentioned his name that yeah. I don't usually mention his name Stalking his heart. He yeah is. It was at the first time and only time that I had been. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah I don't I hit but the thing is we're so we didn't even talk about. So what compelled you to get sober. What what what? Evening did that guy. I just realized that you know you got sober New York and we brought that up. What what was the event when I got there so I was was invited to go to Chamber Music Right. That's right. We started this story. We did not finish it. Yeah and I said I'll go get high with me too my friend I got I before chamber music for exactly. Yeah if you want to get sober and have the universe tell you things right so I was paranoid. I didn't want to leave because I thought. Oh I'll everyone will look if I leave and because the truth was coming at me because that was the whole thing I was always running from the truth of your alcohol collars exactly. Yeah and I was stuck and it just happened. It just flashed it was. It was kind of White Lady at the Chamber Music Winning yet at the performance during the performance you are an alcoholic like like a like a like in big capital letters above the stage. You are an I was silent. I was silent for the next two days. I didn't say anything because I knew there's something had happened and I didn't want to do anything for a while. And then I was going out of my mind and then someone for my pass in Chicago had called and she he must descend something and she said you know. I've gotten sober and I said Oh my God I don't know what to do I. I don't think I'm GONNA make it. I I but I don't want to do a and she she said why don't you just go over to Perry Street and that was it that show business. No Oh no it. Would you have a soundtrack to your white light experience. No because I think I went out of body probably and I was high so I never really remember things anyways. Yeah Yeah I don't remember the music I was I was freaking out. Wow Yeah and that's my life changed. There was on we. Yeah that's good. Yeah because that'll freak. Yeah exactly and then the next day he went to Perry Very Street. No nine days later I was hanging on tight. I didn't WANNA do wanted out for years. Yeah yeah so that was that nineteen what ninety ninety-one. Wow that's a long time no so most of your career you've been sober half so okay. Michael Rapaport Yeah Yeah. I don't know what happened but I have to assume that you've both gotten older and wiser. I have yeah I don't I don't from the point that I stopped picking up the phone and an opening the door. Yeah I have you can feel it. I don't I don't you detached attachment. Yeah you started out dating regular and then it just got weird. Well then I wanted to break up and that was it. Yeah and that's usually when that stuff gets gets activated I mean if you have some kind of impulse control control or right or entitlement issues. Don't think someone else has the right to their privacy but you got got through it. Yeah I did I did yeah I did. It was hard though. He's got a big mouth. You know yeah I don't. I don't think we talked about it and I think it was one of those things that like it seemed to be in the culture Right because I guess he's got a big mouth mouth. Yeah that's that that he still has. Yeah he does. It's bigger he. That's the problem. And he's he was very juvenile and had a big mouth so he it was like a fourth grade playground. Problem of you're the villain I was the villain. Yeah Yeah so You know best to just pull back and move on and yeah and you ended up getting married at some point. Yeah that's good. Yeah you found somebody that wasn't to represent your childhood somehow exactly look. I mean that. I think that was probably right before my thirties. And we all we go through things don't we you know the thing is weird. Is that wake. I don't know you but you seem very familiar to me because I've grown up with you to a certain degree in your work but like I get a sense of who you are and you're like that but the thing is that emotionally i. I don't know that people change that much as people but the intensity of their emotions and how they experiencing them that that does change you. You know what I mean. It's like I think think we are is sort of set you know as the framework. Yeah but the the emotional intensity or you know like the like sobriety or whatever obsession insanity e depression like all that stuff that happens in the psyche and the emotional realm that stuff can level off. Yeah and you can make different decisions around it. But you know the the vessel itself and and the the sort of framework of who we are kind of stays the same. Your which is I think. I'm just realizing that as I'm saying into you great discovering but you know it makes sense because you know they say people experience contentment after fifty do they is that what they I And I I think it's partly because we've experienced so many things we just no. We've had enough experience like to not go down X.. Road not go down. Why road like for instance reading review? I've read enough reviews to know that I don't shouldn't do that. That doesn't work for me so now. Now I don't read a review and it's like there's a containment because I have experienced now wisdom. I think that's interesting. I don't know if ever heard that put. Yeah I know I didn't know that adage then we experienced contentment over in our fifties. Because like I you know for a while. I thought it was getting Alzheimer's but it's just contentment. Right wisdom wisdom we yeah and also like just knowing I think for people like you and I in in what we have in common you in the Boundary Department to sort of you'll have them and enforce them and make decisions around them even though they may not be instinctually what we wanna do but knowing that we need to do it is a big deal you have to be able to say like okay just to tell yourself not gonNA reviews or I don't need to follow this this person on instagram anymore. Because it's making me for resentment and whatever it is like we know enough to take care of ourselves Through deciding right because for some reason I'll I'll let myself take a Lotta Shit right. You go I just waving a certain amount of discomfort. Yeah because I just don't make choices to not do wit. Sure sure because I'm used to discomfort right right. Do you know what I mean I do and I think that thing about deciding discernment right only comes when you know what the things are that you are discerning right so if you don't make decisions if we were just sort of in a where am I don't know but now we have enough information to know I want to do vis as opposed to rat right make decisions sometimes. That's all I know. Is I don't want to do that anymore. I think that's a great way to get somewhere to start like with. What don't you you WanNa do or what That's a lot of information. I'm still unclear about what I want to do. Yeah me too. Are you decide heart desires heart. That's good that's that's what. Yeah because I'm doing a bit now about that. How I can know join? Happiness is not really anything I've worked for Relief is really you know like it's not happiness it's just how do I not feel and insane or or you know worried or full of dread rhino. Would you like to be not just trying to get relief but actually getting joy urgent That must've felt good. That cy rose good well. I think I'm I'm. I'm finding that you know contentment is sort of part of the pathway. Let like it makes. It seem more possible. I don't know that I'm looking for joy but I think caffeine is okay. You know I do think I experienced joy. I don't make a big deal out of it. Keep it to myself. Yeah keep that joy to myself I can spread the joy around but You know I think it's it goes getting better. Yeah Yeah you know. It's a big deal going to the second part of one's life. I feel that I'm up to the task. I didn't fifty when I a couple of years ago. I was like okay. No there's a task I don't know if I'm up to it. But what does that mean. Well well it means to me it means. Am I going to show up. Am I really going to show up for his age yet to the next chapter of my life to the the second part of my life which is am I going to face the things I didn't want to face develop the things that are undeveloped. Look at that which I didn't want to 'em am I up to this part of me was like I may not be. I may not be up to this task. Or what's the alternative. She just wasn't up to the task. God size guess what happened. She just wasn't there that plays out in my mind. What did I don't I go to bed and I don't I stay in my bed? Okay okay yeah like or or she just moved away and no one ever heard from her again or yes. She's just acting weird of senior around. No one knows what happened or knows what happened. But she's just not facing things the right right I feel like I kind of crossed that threshold and I was like I'm going. I'm going to damn it I'm going to muster up here this I'm GonNa. I'm going to face this task. I felt like I was like going. They're going into the stuff that I'm afraid of. I feel like I took a back step like a couple of months ago. Yeah Yeah Steps are heart. Well I'm working. I'm working on a piece and I showed the peace ace theatrical piece. Yeah and I think I might have been too soon for me to show it to people. Yeah and so I lost. This myself. Couldn't take feedback. We're ready for feedback. I don't think I was. I don't think I was so that's what I'm so I need to just get back that you're fucked them Okay I don't I don't have that I don't either but I you you will you got it so that you believe it. I can pretend but I'm just like It's as she's pretending are saying fuck that but I get very like but that's the one thing it's sort of like reviews here. Here's the weird thing about especially now like if you're on twitter or reviews or you read a comment border. I'm pretty sensitive but like I I learned that from putting myself through it from taking those hits that it doesn't mean especially with the Internet Internet. It's like it doesn't mean everybody thinks that way it doesn't mean the entire Internet thinks that way and even if it's peers it's like well who are they really. I mean you're just up against someone's one's opinion that comes from whatever day they're having whatever life they're having so at some point. You know a most of the time most people that you rely on. They're not even thinking about you so like you know you. Put them in that position so for me when I break it down. What's that opinion really worth and a lot of times if it triggers something in me Weicker or they're especially if they're trolls and they want to make you feel insecure? Whatever I mean you know? There's that but it's like even that's not really real like I'm developing a thicker skin from putting myself through it. Well done but but like for what. What are you writing? I'm writing. It's a one woman show. Yeah with probably you know a film and sound and And it's it's about acting burning. So it's it's a memoir awesome memoir piece which takes it also is very difficult my husband Wright's memoirs and and can you write plenty He's on his fourth. Is He writing about writing a memoir. No not not yet not yet you could they. Yeah what's his name. Nick Flynn always big writer. Another bullshit night in suck city. Oh yeah he wrote wrote about ten years ago I guess all right yeah it did it did. I'm good title so birding enacting yeah what what. You're burder I'm murder and what what what it's about is about. I realized that the the skills roles that I use in my acting. I also use when I'm burning the main skill being listening And that they intersect in this really interesting way and and it's really about paying attention because I'd read this thing where listening hiring is the sense. Hearing is the sense in listening is the skill and the difference between the two paying attention. And so. That's what the pieces about how hard it is to pay attention in general. Yeah and that I have so much experience of not being able to pay attention really because as an actor. You'd be in a psych ward if you're always in the moment You'd be crazy. I mean you can't always been. I'm more they're working. It just came on the stage. The goal is to be in the moment to you. Well I'm I'm aware of the audience. I'm I'm thinking about I'm thinking I'm thinking about dinner I'm thinking about I don't like the actor. How do I get back in the moment right? How do I get back in? How do you know right so a lot of? I've had a lot of experience. The main thing I can always go to his listening because even if I can't listen I can keep trying to and I will eventually listen. Listen right got this cool thing built in like okay. Well not listening. I say we'll just try to listen but I can't listen. Just just try just just. Oh Oh oh yeah okay can bring it back in. Yeah so you're saying that. Right yeah right creatively or that the to do the thing to get into the present requires hearing than listening. And then then you were engaged in your outside yourself because you're in the moment where you're not in your head right and I guess it helps to have something to focus on like a guest. Listening focuses sure. I think it's hard to be in the moment. What's be in the moment? Like what. How do I be in the moment like I? That's it's not accessible in a way to me but listening is active. All I can I can do that. And listening is so cool because it it makes room for the other. Yeah sure it's all about the other the other now. Where's this coming? When did the burning birding start the birding started probably about Maybe eight years ago I went to my first bird festival. The burning for me was when twitter came. I saw that birds. Birds use twitter a lot. Yeah because it's a great way to communicate. Oh there's expert over here Oh okay you got a little world you got a bird world on twitter and so I was like. Oh there's like a bunch of people at Central Park there's like a bird there and like oh cool. Maybe I'll do that whereas before I would just like you know I felt like I was doing it alone like I liked birds bird feeders but I didn't never like I didn't. We know what to do with it. What kind of birds were what? Yeah well I knew a little bit of that just a little bit but I guess I have met my tribe you know because so much of it is about the US community about US reflecting back with each other and you're part of it now yeah man so I went to my first bird festival like eight years ago and that's when I started calling myself burder murder. Wow Yeah and that was like I'm a burder. What kind of people were burgers? Well my husband's also a poet. Yeah and and he said you know what. I think. You've actually found a group that is more out there than poets. You have you found it. You've got the metal. You got the metal you know. Here's what birds are. Burgers are great. They're curious they're they're they. Investigate they They're open And yet some can seem nerdy. But but they're they're obsession or their interest is is is literally fleeting in the sense that you know you find these birds and you just want to. You have to wait and be quiet and and hope they don't fly away. That's a good point. You know that's interesting. That is definitely one way to look at it but I think it's it's deeper because that bird is where's where's that coming from. Where's that bird going to? What's its habitat it? Is it necessary. Hang out where do they hang out. Where's the other? How did I not identify the moment you can? How can identify that bird? Better what do I need to do to learn. How can I sharpen my skills so you keep kind of trying to grow and develop Interesting so that's the grow in development learn part like knowing which birds vacation where during the winter and that kind of stuff why they're not around or where they might be era. Is that the same one from last year. Look at had babies all that stuff. It's infinitely interesting. It really is but but but also the other amazing thing about birds. Is They fucking fly by right. They fly yeah. Yeah that's kind of amazing. I know they fly. They fly and their their Dinosaurs that's another thing we keep forgetting when I saw these great cam and there was one with a great blue heron and it was. I would use it to calm down like when I was doing the conjuring and I would come home after being possessed all day and I would turn these nest cams on at night and just like just be with the nasty. Do you know with that. Herron sleeping on top of the chicks the spring peepers and all that and I was watching and all of a sudden a A great a great horned owl swooped in and and tore the feather off the top of the Heron's head and you know tried to get the hair in the heron came up and was like it looked like a pterodactyl title against like like silhouetted. You know and you saw I saw of it. It was like a PTERODACTYL and it was like life and death and I I was like first of all. That's a dinosaur okay. Let's just remember that but just the life and death in and you're looking for a little piece I was and I was but that's the thing that's that listening thing is. I was like stop imposing on nature. Stop going to it. Why don't you just let it being and not be like it's good? It's bad it's this. It's that just come to it. Let it be what it is. Chaos a fight for survival. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah No. I think it's interesting and and so well I mean. Don't don't be setback setback too much. Just because you know you put it out in the world you should tried wants you run it in pieces want you do some storytelling nights like a moth thing. Instead of like instead of like worrying about the whole peace once you break it into stories and tell them you know like a bit of the time ten minute very good fifteen minute pieces because they have all those storytelling nights. I'm sure any of them would love to have you very good I have. I've done a moth. I did the mothball. Oh Yeah Yeah I so I know those guys. I love that. You're working on that story you told no but would it work. You could do it that way. Oh Yeah I did that big benefit thing you know at the mothball but I could just. I mean. They're all the time I'll have to do. Who is just sign up to one of these things? That is great advice. See What I love about that as I could have just kept this all to myself and not shared this kind of struggle or uncomfortable moment and I did and to a good person to good source. Yeah and here you just came back with something. That's that's what it's about an for me. I'm nice later and I don't for me what I've really learned. The past couple of years is people. It's really by sharing sharing with others. That's when I feel better. Of course yes. So that's and that's also the nature of the program. Yeah exactly DA. Ah but I didn't know with my work. How important it was because as an actor? I'm always with like other. You know we. We are together communal. Sure and you're also working on someone else's work to collaborative a Lotta time Gobert of piece that was written or directed or created by someone else right and so I don't have to do a lot on my own. I'm like oh I've gotta be with people so that that's fantastic. What you did was you just made it manageable and which is so huge because it started to feel overwhelming? We have because when you're putting together peace. 'cause I improvised through hours like I'm working on a new our stand up or whatever and I've done one person shows but I work onstage with with my. That's how I generate is in in real time like I don't write it down because that bothers me dies from me if I write it down too much like sometimes I'll I'll record things over and over again until I get them right but I I'll never listen to the recordings and I have transcribed recordings but I know from work shopping shopping. My own stuff that you can create space for yourself like that if you do a storytelling or what I'll do if I'm trying to improvise through things to to get new stuff. I'll just do like a like you know workout at a small black box theater you do like a residency like you know. Like a few Tuesday's a month with you know either like a five dollar ticket or cheap ticket with the with the understanding that I'm working on something and you know and just you know whoever comes comes and just try to fuck him process. Run a people that that's great. That's kind of I think where I am. I'm looking into residencies. Actually because I think I need to do that sort of thing. Yeah you've just described but what I love is you've just given me like three great solutions so thank you as opposed to just isolating thinking. He saw it. Yeah you you did it you you good yeah well. This was a worthwhile thing to do that. Yeah and why are you in. What's his Perry Mason show? Yeah it's pretty cool. Oh Oh yeah. It's Tim. Van Patten is creating it on. HBO and Tim Van Patten Did all the Sopranos and Yeah Boardwalk Empire wires really. He's fantastic old-school New Yorker Resurrecting Perry Mason. Yeah yeah but it's so it's really cool because it's it's the know it from the novels you know it's from it's the film noir and he's just back from World War One uh-huh and he's really damaged you know and it's like you know I think it's nineteen twenty nine maybe So it's just it's a great world.

The harbaugh's podcast coming up next week here in the podcast just our football preview special with special teams coordinator chris partridge defensive coordinator dom brown and offensive coordinator josh gaddis before we jump into this week's podcast or reminder subscribe to us and apple podcasts listened by the podcast one app on podcast one dot com and please follow some context on twitter at podcast or using hashtag jack talk this week on the podcast jim harbaugh jack harbaugh and matt dudek sat down for a conversation with former michigan athletic director dave brandon our guest mishkin skin man dave brandon welcome to the show dave thank you. It was really nice to be invited. Please be here awesome so we just we started. <hes> we were talking about your time as a player here on the team and <hes> who your position coach was and maybe we can start off with you as a player mission well. I was recruited from. I went to sophomore in high school. Just north of here in was recruited here and fell in love with the place and came and this show has already gone on a little bit longer than the time time i spent on the field. I was one of those guys that got beat up a lot by players who are better than me but <hes> i really had a great for years here and got a terrific education and it sets the stage for me to do a lot of really interesting and fun things throughout my career so i will allow numeracy michigan and what positions your quarterback coming out of the drop back passing quarterback and a kicker and a punter in high school and i did a little kicking and pining here i play quarterback the first couple years till they found out how slow i was and bobi for dennis franklin over at that's right but with dennis franklin who could like run twice as fascinates me tom slade. Tom was seventy. What tom slade was in my class. He started and we went undefeated. That first year got got beat by stanford the rosebowl in a last second field goal and then tom for the rest of his career held for extra points denny franklin came in beat him out and and the rest was history larry sipa sipa thirteen out of cincinnati ohio. That's right that was the that was the big game where slade laden down with a hip pointer and sipa win against ohio state and we ran a pitch option and billy taylor. Oh down the a simple as a quarterback on that. I did not know that option or toss sweep. It was an option yeah. Everything was an option back and hit them. The thing i remember is bob uber's call. Yes i mean that is give it to us. It was bob buford that that was the important thing. Nobody can duplicate bob you for but it was a <hes>. It was a terrific terrific game and sipa came in and did a great job and my last game at michigan was the ten ten tie where we kinda got screwed by the athletic directors who voted to send ohio state eight because our quarterback was hurt right. That was my collarbone sidelined jim. Will you those first years a kid watching watching games in your first year coach on the side. I was in the south end zone with mom and jon and joni. That was one of the things we had never. I don't think our family i had ever experienced a vacation. We had never gone anywhere in the locker room. After the game bo is convinced that we were gonna go because ohio state right dave right they had gone the year before and yeah in a bo what was really great as that t- meeting we had that sunday after we found no doubt i. I wish somebody would have recorded that in today's world. They're recording going on crazy but he went through athletic director by athletic director pretty much off the record and really taught us about the politics of college football because i mean i remember one story he he was being interviewed by one of these athletic directors and the guy fell asleep during his pitch and both through a playbook adam to wake them up and from that point way forward they had a bad relationship as you can imagine and so we got a note from that guy and through every athletic director was really. I think we want to mention names on that note. Do believe this that he was a michigan man. The man bump bump bump vote off four hundred four. I think it was elroy hirsch it wisconsin that's right. I remember that that's right. You said we were going to protect one thing. We do here day weekend. We can edit anything the vote afterward. I think the statute of limitations as as we were talking about that it was really tough because larry sip it was a terrific quarterback and there's no reason why we wouldn't table to compete and win in that rose bowl game and for us for us is seniors that was before they changed all the rule so you couldn't go to another bowl aw so here here we are undefeated seventy seventy three and seventy four seventy five could could <hes> a big ten team team go to a different ball other than the rose bowl right so we we stayed home on new year's day and particularly for the senior class i mean we went off the field. We have no idea where taking a uniform comes off the last time and guys like me. You know that last trip to the rose bowl that would have been a travel trip for us. That would have been a really big deal ten year olds perspective. We were counting on that vacation. I'd never written on an airplane either my brother or sister and we're going to go to california <hes> to disneyland. There's athletic directors have got to vote michigan to the rose bowl because in the past it had gone off of presidents who had gone to whoever had gone. You're not going to your previous would would get to go. It was almost like it was that kind of foregone collusion that mission was going to go to the rose bowl. We're counting on that. You've ever we were when we found out we weren't. We are gone <hes>. I just remembered <hes> the next day. Maybe it was a bob you for. He was on the radio. Does that day that will live in infamy. You equated to pearl harbor nineteen forty one. I was in my dorm room and yeah. I remember that i remember i remember. I was at home getting ready to come back for the meeting and they made the announcement. They have the vote. They made the announcement. They caught bo coming out of the front door of his house. I'll never forget he's in that trench coat and they shove microphones and honest to god. He was just he was he. It was as mad as i've ever seen him. I've seen him really mad. I remember the meeting. Tell me how close i am. He got up and spoke and actually sobbed tears. Here's were come face about the injustice that had been done to this team and the politics that had been involved in it never had seen him so motion about about emotional about that yeah and just going through athletic director by athletic director. He explained to us. You know it was like guys. This is a political world and and here's what's happened to you and us and then he made a commitment he was going to take us all to the senior ball which i don't think he could really <hes> he. He took us the coaching staff to hawaii. He was coaching the google the he was a head coach and so we had all all the coaches in our wives he took us all out there and then we're on the beach and the sun's coming down and he <hes> he has to go off to practice and we're sitting there. This isn't fair. The guy is brought us out here. We need to get rent a car to couple cars. We need to get out there and say both sit down here. We're going to coach his team for you so we rented it cars and i've crossed my heart when i tell you we rented cars and we drove out. They were all excited. We're in. It's our coaches some gear. We get out of the car and he gets. You're are back in that car. You coach all year long. You have the fun all year long. This is my team. I'm coaching this team in the car. Go back to the other day. I was mom kept it by war and that all down did did you go get hurt. Did you know we came back. She was on the beach. I mean she was really sick and so i said well come on. Let's go up to the room so she's passed out actually kinda dragging her onto the elevator and and it was kind of the middle of the day but there are people looking at me like hey what's going on here there so finally got her up there so i say you're going to be all right she. I can't account so we'll get. A doctor called and it's like noon. They say well the doctors here but they're going to go to lunch. You need to come right now. Drag your back in the room into the elevator down. We call doctors out for lunch on a sign on the door back. I take her back up to the top floor and then she said i think i need some food. I need some food so look at the menu. Hamburger knows days. There's like eight dollars. French fries another six. I mean for something to drink with like five and i'm thinking collies. I don't know if we have that kind of money that she got the food and all the ones he felt a lot better. We were just a little oh poor for the rest of the story is now that's you guys went out there in january and then where mom and dad are saying hey. Can we go on vacation. We didn't get to go to the rose bowl. Go on a vacation well. We'll see what we can do. We'll see how see how things look. <hes> get some time off after recruiting. <hes> you know we're kind of april may rolls around still nothing in you know getting a no firm commitment about going anywhere out of vacation <hes> camps to get those in june and then july. I'll get some time off. Maybe you know maybe maybe maybe maybe so <hes> july's rolled around. We're kind of still bugging them in late june and that we don't have we don't have the money to take a ticket trip. You know we're we're not going anywhere so a couple of another week of that then <hes> come on dad. Let's let's go somewhere with vacation. He goes you wanna go to vacation. We'll go on vacation motorcar. We're going to vacation right now house assault g._m. John joni my mom. We don't know what's going to get us into car. Honest to god truth there. He drives us to dexter dexter. There's a there's a circular circular dealer doubt right at right. When you get to downtown you go around a fountain so he drives around the fountain and then heads the car back. There's your vacation uh-huh fun. The no more discussion more discussion about that it may well. I can tell you i was blessed. I was very very lucky. I had a three and a half hour dinner with bow at the top posts the night before he died in it was really quite remarkable and i can tell you during the course of that dinner. He talked about that that ten ten tie and that whole thing i mean he went to his grave feeling bad add about that not that he could do anything other than be victimized by it but he felt so bad for the players the the program it was it was a gross gross injustice. It really was but it led to a lot of rule changes that made it a lot better for a lot of other future teams which is a good thing but didn't feel very good at the time well fast forward to two thousand nineteen and <hes> we got the new shabak hall really excited to to show you the new improving yeah room and training room and fields and everything and <hes> it hit me about <hes> about this summer i was just driving around the campus and you go by the unbelievable south campus on state street and every venue every sports team on our campus now has a stadium and it's really never looked more beautiful and <hes> that's what you just talk a little bit about the you know the planning the execution that went into <hes> the stadium the big house two hundred fifty million dollars another two hundred and fifty million dollars. I think for the for the south state street complex election. Where'd you get the money. We spent a lot of time fundraising. We raise my in my five years and nearly five years in the a._d. The job close to two hundred million dollars and what's good about it in a unit like the athlete department. If you can get that much cash you can borrow viral against that cash on the backs of the university which is a very very low interest rate so it really gave us a lot more money that we could use and you know one of the things i just took on when i got this job as it was really really sad to see how many of the facilities had really gotten you know the the just appreciated to the point to the ridiculous. I remember when meeting when a couple of really the captains of our trap men's extract team came to see me and their complaint was that they couldn't get any hot water to take a shower after practice. I mean think about that. We we've got track stars that have gone to win olympic medals from the school and we can't give him a hot shower and we had teams that were practising in deplorable conditions and <hes> we just decided we weren't take a very holistic approach to transforming the athletic campus and we traveled around and we looked at what we consider to be the the best plan equipment in the country in virtually every sport and we went about the business. We completed the renovation of the stadium. <hes> redid the locker room over there air. We <hes> during that five year period we we built the player development centre for the basketball programs. We renovated chrysler. We had one of the infamous national announcers describe chrysler as the worst division one competition arena in the country and we transformed into something that i think is really really special and you've kind of seen it in the crowds and the atmosphere and the success of the teams over there joost was really old and tired. We put sixteen million dollars into transferring that we built a new we we redid the golf. Course we brought in a guy named mike devries who really restored l. stir mackenzie golf courses we raise the money for the new clubhouse we built a field hockey stadium which we didn't have one before and then we had all these programs that resource center academic resource center we expanded that actually one of the plants item place with triple the size of that because i still think it's too small for all the athletes and all the usage that gets <hes> but one of the things that we you know we really wanted to go after was is there was a limited capacity for strengthening conditioning for training you know for particularly in the winter months here and the whole south campus complex became a really big part of the vision to create a space where all of our athletes could have access to strengthen condition crimen good training aiming facilities good medical facilities that building was something that was really important to us and you know the baseball and softball baseball get rid of it well bob baseball. The the stadium was in pretty good shape but <hes> their locker room facilities were horrible and it was natural grass and you know trying to practice baseball baseball here a natural grass. You know two thirds of time. They were out there. Either gonna get hurt or they couldn't have a practice so <hes> thanks to fred wilpon on his family. We got the money and we put in the artificial surface which we ended up putting in on the softball field as well hutch didn't have you've got rooms in facilities that she needed her office was over it <hes> weidenbach and she wasn't close to her team and so we rebuilt that whole facility for her. We really tried to touch every team in provide them. You know whether it's the new soccer field we just. We just really worked hard to say okay. How do we get these facilities to the point where when a recruit comes to campus or when we're recruiting coaches to come in coach here that were given venom every opportunity to be successful and it was hundreds of millions of dollars of fundraising hundreds of millions of dollars of borrowing <hes> but you know it. It's it's all come to fruition. I'm very very proud and i and i understand that this last year we actually won that c._b._s. Cup for not only our our performance in the revenue sports the ones that were kind of known for but we are broad based program now that competes in everything we got baseball teams in the world series as we got gymnastics seems ranking in the nation we we got a lot of great things going on. Here is really terrific. In south campus has track indoor and outdoor track up gymnastics to have tennis wrestling cross ross ross thrown soccer stadium complex and every one of those facilities capable title and is in the process of hosting tournaments which is another big deal because it brings hotels and in restaurants had brings it brings economic development to to ann arbor but it also brings crowds here and it also gives our chance our kids a chance to compete at a higher level in their own facilities. We were always going on the road to play in the big ten championships or the n._c._a._a.'s and now our kids have a chance to do that here and that's a big advantage in a couple of our family members will be able to experience the facilities here <hes> grace. Jim's daughter will be here in the fall. Water polo water polo surgery center is amazing. It's terrific. It's terrific and part of our expansion there. Was we really what they really need over there and again. I'm talking a few years ago but what they really need was locker room space and some more training and strengthening conditioning space. We had a plan to do that. We had we had water polo team members who were sharing sharing lockers. You don't get a full ride scholarship to university of michigan to share locker with somebody. You know so. I kept looking. At where are we in a you know. We're competitively not where we need to be or where are we not providing the michigan experience for kids and then the second family member john's daughter. Our alison is a lacrosse player and she has committed to notre dame. They'll be playing here. Get that in there. You are yo- oh you gotta. You gotta give equal opportunity rights equal opportunity. I mean we had to throw that out there and then we had a heck of a series here here this summer she's been on fire alison <hes> for another show but she has heard how the show and other out of the plane. He's commit amused commits and lacrosse. We had not <hes> in the u._s. There had not been a men's lacrosse program. A a gr- club allocated club sport elevated to division one in twenty eight years and one of the things. I'm very very proud of is we. We elevated both men's and women's lacrosse roster versity sports. We offer twenty five full ride scholarships to help kids that could otherwise never get that opportunity. It's a sport that i think michigan ought to be playing and ought to be good at but when we started out those coaches were in trailers share in baseball baseball locker room and now we the bill through the generosity of those donors that we hit up time and time again. We build a facility out there that i understand can can you you know match up with anything out there in the country. It's a raging. It's a raging success. Lacrosse programs here both men and women and i can even test this when i first got here coaching in two thousand fifteen again names will be protected to protect the innocent but it was a it was a kind of a common thing around not common coming. I'm just saying there was some voices they're like. Why are we spending this much. Money on lacrosse cross seems like a great sport. What's what's the problem with lacrosse and now to see where we're at right now. I mean there's a lot of deep deep deep bows being taken but <hes> that was. I mean the fishing area. There's there's a real vision there take it was controversial it. It really was but i i pushed. It really really hard because it's a growing sport. It used to be very much an east coast sport. Now it's more national you're seeing more and more crowds at the high school level level more and more kids playing it. It's a great game. I you know i think the shot clock. There's some things they need to do to speed it up and increase the screen love to see him put helmets on the women. It's some kind of helmets okay. We got allison running around with a pair of goggles mouthguard. Stick her head. I know it's it's not as physical as has men but still it's a weapon out there. I was gonna say that. I was not one of those voices that was against across hours right in their buddies with john. Paul the yeah the <hes> lacrosse coach <hes> when i first got here and it's great to see <hes> john paul john paul doors or deserves a lot of credit 'cause he built that club program we won a couple of national championships not really put you really put position where that was a viable option for us to consider so i give them a lot of credit and when you get off of ninety four on state street and you starting martin north and you come to that that complex i mean is eye-catching stadium up going down stadium drive and the the new golf course to exactly and that jumps out as you come across that bridge and you see that clubhouse soldier right going down south south state street and you see the the massive beautiful this jumps out and the track. I mean the beautiful track. We thought about views a lot because <hes> e- even when we put those it was everything's controversial. I put lights on the stadium. I got so sick of you know we play those afternoon games and bringing those portable lights. There's shadows on the field and i actually got e._s._p._n. To pay for it didn't cost us a dime all we had to do his promise to play a night game. Once a year and <hes> we put those lights up there and we put those big video boards you remember we used to have those things and then we back lit that block m. end from downtown and arbor. You know it's like a beacon to the stadium and i think some of those some of those views really defined brand and the and the program and it really it really makes the athletic department and earn more more the athletic facilities jump out as an integral part of the university as you say that there's a a vision in my mind here a couple years ago. We were up on the fourth floor. I think it was for recruiting something we're doing recruiting and it was it was dark about seven seven thirty. The lights were on and it started to snow. Snow is coming down on the stadium through those lights and the stadium was lit up. I mean quite breath. Took your breath. I mean we hang out there a lot now and recruiting that that fourth-floor in young jack level because so long and you got the stadium i want side and then you get to be the view of the campus out the other side. You put the game films on those video boards any sixteen seventeen year old kid that staring out that window if they're not looking at michigan sums wrong i mean i've seen the backlit. 'em on the scoreboard flying over at the stadium at night coming back on a delta flight right or whatever you can see 'em from up in the air a couple times when we've been out recruiting coach so why i remember i was nine years old pulling into ann arbor michigan for the family family and the first thing we did was we drove pat. I'm gonna take you guys passed the stadium house the biggest stadium in all the world. Nobody plays football in a bigger stadium stadion this michigan football stadium and we drove by it. You remember in seventy seventy three. I mean it's the top seats of the stadium. Were just just above ground level and i remember you drove us fighter. We're like what it doesn't look very big dad. We'll wait. Wait till you get inside. Where did you get incites. Sites built down into the ground but now i mean it's when i when i was seven years at i recruited here when i brought a youngster on campus for the first time i followed that playbook i would bring him on the high side. You know the side where the road yeah was right here in st i'd never brought a recruit in for the first time in the tunnel what i wanted to do was they come at ground level and they have the feeling you have. What's what's so great about this stadium. They walk through that entrance and take a few who steps and all the ones. They're looking down into this giant hole as fob you for describe it that joost doug and it was awesome awesome. I site of our great. Stadium was a great it was a really important decision because when we spent the two hundred and forty million or whatever it was to renovate the stadium stadium and i was going through the plans. We really wanted to turn the locker room into something special. It's important put the media rooms in and all that good stuff often and we did a lot out in the bowl and the and the sweets and the club seats and everything but we were sure what to do with the tunnel and i was an advocate of there was only one thing i wanted to change the tunnel and that was to get the porta johns out of the tunnel used to that's right they're gone. I just don't think for god's work but other than that we decided you know. Let's put a coat of paint on it. Yeah and that's just leave it the way it was meant to be. It's always been constant has been that time has the four of the tunnel changed. Somebody said at one time it was loose. Yeah yeah we put it that kind of non-slip rubber kind of what you see and allow the weight rooms that would replace four was put now's the time. It was probably ashfall way back when i think it was way back when we were we made a lot of changes to sham boeckler hall when i was here too we actually did the rededication of semak or home. Put that whole whole hollis history and now it's gone through another generation of change. I think the glick was built about the time glick was done was done when i came okay that was dedicated but i i told jim one of the things i'm most proud of about the social and boeckler hall project project is i really wanted to honor bow and put a statue in front of the facility and <hes> i i went to the university dan you know this is not an easy place to politics and i was quickly told that the university does not have anywhere in the campus a a living or pass living person as a statue you think about we had animals they are but it's like we don't do people we don't do people and it's like well. Why don't we people and thanks to mary. Sue coleman who was the president then who work with me and i mean we had to go before the a statue the faculty statue approval committee and the this and the atom. You can't believe the traps we ran. We finally got permission to get an artist artist to do that. Rendering and then we got that approved and and just coming in here today. It's been awhile since i've been in this building walking back. That's by that statue just makes me feel oh great because to me it just i don't know how we could have immortalized the guy i any more than having that statue out there curse well new a new and new argument but to be here and come here and see the people daily daily if you come to the statue and they have their kids put their kids up there and they take the picture of them and i mean it's it's really touching for me having the relationship boat to see that with that statue yup. I can't imagine without the bow statue in front of it. I mean just it would look into were exactly that's a great way to phrase it great way to put it but we unveiled that in cathy was was there i mean it was a big unveiling and it was and i think the artist did a phenomenal job really captured him so he is and i look at. It still scares me we actually we actually took that statue this past year and shrunk down and that's our n._b._a. Team m._v._p.'s. He's a rookie of the year we have the chevys instead of the bus now and we'll give you one. Wouldn't you say you've done. We're going to give you a chevy chase.

You're listening to attack each day the harbaugh podcast one thing. We haven't even talked about yet coach package. You obviously hired him. When in your time period here you had to be super proud of that yeah. I'm very proud of a bunch of coaches that we brought in in our swimming is doing great and you know mike's done on an amazing job building that program and eric came in and he he looked at me across the table and said you know i can i can bring a championship and and he defied kind of this logic that you had to be a southern school to compete in baseball you know great baseball player's gonna come where it gets to be twenty degrees below zero in the polar vortex and and he said if you give me a field that i can practice decide if you give me feeling practice. I will make these kids tough. I will get them out. There was a little bit like the old spring ball he's done. He's <hes> he's out author. Sometimes with his shirt off twenty five thirty degrees out there <hes> their practice and don't tell me for a minute that hasn't made them tougher me them better and <hes> and again you know fred wilpon came through. We those mets nine straight on new coach. It's it's many more than that. Now it's <hes> i think it was a nine straight thing. It's like seventeen of eighteen rat right now. They want sit like they've lost. They won eight. They lost one. They won nine. I think i was the new york all last week and then they're all over the place. We can't talk about facilities without talking about steve ross because <hes> you know we raise a lot of money but there aren't too many athletic programs get hundred million dollar gifts and see the biggest owner. He's he's big daughter for the university and he certainly thinks donor prevalent. Yes i think that's the largest single cash gift that's ever been given any athletic program and and honestly god when i was in his offices in new york asking him mm-hmm for one hundred million dollars in my voice doesn't shake and he wasn't ready for one hundred million dollar ask but in classic in in classic michigan tradition it was a it was a team effort. We set up we set up a facetime and we had coaches you know. I asked they said before you answer i want you to hear from some of your friends so hodgkin's on their you know hutches she gives them the and then red berenson aaronson got in there and it was a scream because apparently red and steve took the same real estate course here in michigan and read said i i should've paid this multi-billionaire but by the time we got done with the coaches and student athletes and i'm and i'm sitting there and i said we needed to be a hundred million dollars and we wanna make it the the stephen ross athletic south athletic campus and he's an i._r._a. A- and that was the trigger because once you get that kind of seed money it's a lot easier to raise a lot of other gifts and that just paved the way for a lot of what we're celebrating celebrating today you around the table here have no idea what he just described at at marquette university. After i got out of coaching i was hired in advancement spent over there for fundraising and i went over there thinking you got you can go out and talk and talk about sports and you got a good memory and all i'll dynamite. I could not ask for money. My mouth would move but no words would come out unless they read lips. They had no idea that i was asking asking for money. That is not an easy cat. Am i right or not. Easy is not easy particularly when you're talking about tens of millions of dollars you now these in today's world you know to to earn one hundred million dollars. You have to give a hundred million dollars. You have to earn two hundred million right. I mean it's it's. It's a it's a huge. Ask in these people are incredibly incredibly generous marquette. We came up ingenious plan. We'd have dinner together and i'd talk walk and a and do my little thing and then excuse me i have to go to the restroom so i would leave the table and then someone else's slide into my seat master of the month well leading examples friend razor. I think i coined that term leading by examples and important part of because it was easier for me to say i want you to endow football scholarship because i doubt one and you know when we raise money for the hospitals the same thing well you know i think i think it was a lot easier for me because i was all in and and so are the development people that i was working with because this these are always team efforts efforts and and you know the passion that we had for the mission that we are under i think people felt it and they supported and you touched on something that that i'd like to bring up two two years ago young johnny <hes> jim is <hes> youngest suddenly early arrival in four seven weeks premature hospital there and we walked into the hospital we walked into the hospital and went through all the credentials and the tags and looked up and saw david brandon nick you center center and i i watch no respect i have for you even greater after i saw that and the team mm-hmm in that hospital how they performed with every single room full of premature youngster moms and dads the dads in their home on men and to realize what you what you've brought this this community and and this <hes> and hospital well thanks i appreciate that it was a great honor in a privilege and a huge challenge when you know jan and i were asked to co-chair the campaign with with lloyd laurie car arrays money for the children's hospital and we had our organization meeting and the bigwigs at the hospital basically said you know i'm not sure you're in bill raising money for this because you know hospitals by their nature they borrow money. They make money. You know we've never really been able to raise an appreciable amount amount of money for hospital in that was infamous meeting where i called the guy that was running the f. The entire medical center wimp probably was inappropriate but i said you know we're going to do this and you know lloyd. He was in the same mode so we ended up raising. I think a couple of hundred million dollars <hes> and then when the in addition to the binding we were able to build a hospital there and i have a very similar situation. Two years gems my identical twin boys in one thousand nine hundred eighty. We're actually were born in a local hospital here in southeastern michigan and they were immediately diagnosis having a very rare a problem that only identical twins have so they rush them to the doctor says we gotta get these kids to might not even know what a might was us and they got him here and there was a doctor here that had studied he had done his a particular study project on this very rare recipient sippy donor problem that exists with identical twins he knew exactly what to do. They were here for several months and the you know their lives are saved. You know now they're six-foot-three. They were co captains of their basketball team. They've got two kids. I got four grandkids from and and none of that would happen if it were for the folks that it might so that chris nick brandon nick you that's the name of the those are my son's twin boys well. That's the first thing i saw <hes> win. <hes> john was born it just caught us all by surprise you and i were in <hes> nashville at the coaches convention and got a flight and came back and then the john was born like an hour later. I'm trying to look up. You know premature birth. What does this mean and then after he was born i went out in the hallway and and we we looked looked at the plaque and then your your two sons have the picture and that's the first thing that caught my eye was wow look how tall they are and read their story about athletics alex. I said that was that was a chance. This is encouraging but had gone through six other birth where he just made. I must later this part. We're pregnant agnes great. You know what's it gonna be. <hes> nine months later out they come everything goes smooth and then bam. You know you are in a world that you don't know anything about airy. Yeah the pictures of your boys well as tall as they were really uplift. You picked up the phone within a day or two and call me and that was very very nice. I really appreciate i. I wanna report jon now. Strapping young men go appears to be a southpaw. He's got the right hand. They're throwing and he's moving about with great motivation and enthusiasm so thank you. That's terrific. Well thank those miracle workers over there because you know what it's like anything else you can build the bricks and mortar you can put in all the fancy machinery but the guts that place the thing that really makes it work. Those incredibly talented doctors doctors nurses staff. I mean they are really really something. I was just gonna ask you wonder what your thoughts. I mean you've done so much and and i know i can relate to this and we were talking about. Stephen ross earlier mean so much. Stephen ross has done for so many in across so many different from platforms and now he's just he's getting bashed. I even i haven't tweeted out congratulations to try to stephen ross graduation for me the inducted in in the national football foundation a football foundation hall of fame and i was getting backlash over over that for congratulating him for that but it <hes> you know we all kind of get it all the time you try to do the absolute best job. You can't then you get you. Get her her over. I think we're living at a time where the higher you put yourself in visibility in a leadership position the more vulnerable we are. You know there's always gonna be somebody out there. Shouting you know i always some kids are going to be in their underwear in the basement on twitter and they're gonna start you now. <hes> <hes> story and i felt really bad for steve because he is generous and patriotic guys you'd ever for one of meat and you know he took a lot of grief over this thing which is just too bad. It's too bad zealots zealots on on all sides of the aisle these days. You got politicians that don't seem like they can please anybody what if you could get. I mean right now. I mean a house divided can't stand there's on both sides no matter what they can't if it can be run like a football team. We all pulled together for four each other other for the team detailing. Please everybody your and your and your model could be the team the team that would work or the country the country through the kind. I think at some point you have to you have to whether you agree with the people involved or not. You have to respect the position. That's that's what's kind of painful for me about this. I think in some cases people have lost on both sides they lose respect for what it takes to be a senator what it takes to be a congressperson what it takes to be president united states i mean those positions are not easy and when somebody aspires and achieves that you should give them a certain level respect even if you disagree with everything they stand for one of the great things we had here in michigan is conflict no program ever had more conflict within these walls with bo and it was all initiated initiated by him. He wanted conflict. He wanted ideas. He wanted people screaming at each other and then time to make a decision that we made it and we walked out of that office office as if we all had suggested each one of us had suggested we sold it to our players as if we were the ones that that suggested it and we made it right and you you were part of that jim and you were part of that so for when when they came when the coaches came on a feel you didn't really know what had gone between in those walls to come armed that decision. Everybody had part of a voice in it. You knew you heard you know. That may not be exactly what you wanted but it wasn't this thing where it had to be one or the other or you know half the people. Were you know in <hes> enraged if it didn't go their way i mean there was discussion. There was dialogue you found out what you all believed in and and if something wasn't good for somebody on the team then then you discussed it and you you try to make it in a way with <hes> that that was better than that. Everybody could embrace it. Look how many times bo purposely hired guys that had aspirations to be head coaches. I mean so many of the coaches which is when head coaches. He surrounded himself with people who would challenge him. I saw him fire a few during practice you know but it only lasts for hours jerry. Yeah i saw a few shoving matches but at the end of the day i mean he wanted people who would challenge him and you know and make it better than they do. I worked on stabs after that where you went in and you had those meetings and a decision was made and then the coach would go into his position group and say well. Here's a away we're gonna do it. It's not the way i would have done it. It's not it wasn't my idea but in michigan you know say after i left after i left here well. This is the way the boss wants to do. It and the players immediately were divided. I mean there were some that thought coach but it was never that way here once you walked <music> out the door. I mean you were a team that we're going to. We're going to sell it for your idea. Well i spent the majority of my career in the business world and i can tell you those. Those are the lessons that you can take into the boardroom. You can take into your leadership table leading organizations. They're incredibly invaluable. The it's the the translation of the things that bo bo's leadership lessons says they've been referred to the way that translates into business probably running any other organization is really powerful just one last thing on this for me as a soda pine. It usually run for office hail yeah. Can i get your vote my vote. If i could get your vote that's all i would need gone joe but joe jerry and hammond and i were out to pin room. I'm having a having a cold one afternoon and i asked you what was it about michigan and that staff we worked on that that made it because i tried to duplicate it as a head coach. It got fired at at western michigan trying to couldn't get it done. I wonder why was championship. Well that was a little later but thanks for bringing that ah jerry made a great point he said every day when he woke up and came into this building came in to the coaching room where he was hoping hoping to rise up to the level of other coaches in that room he wasn't thinking about anything as can. I match the talent in that room. Can i contribute something today. This gonna make us a little bit better and you know what i think he hit it on the head and that's why we were never able to duplicate that any other replace it i ever was yeah and i think it was very intentional by bo just the way he recruited coaches and i think that that was something that boselli comfortable with it was me insisted upon setting that really high bar and hold those guys accountable little inter staff competition was a good thing and that was all part of how practices this is happened. I always great great time. Their grandkids at our grandkids are <hes>. They've been crossing paths in the in the flag football world. I don't think we saw you guys basketball. We must have been leaks but probably but we <hes> we just had number eight three weeks ago. -gratulations eight grandkids oldest is eight youngest. This is three weeks old for of down in nashville tennessee. We've built a home down the here and we're going to spend at least part of the time down there with those with those kids and our daughter and son-in-law and then. We've got four of them up here so we've got. We've got a place. We've got a place in michigan. We've got a place down there and we we still kept her place at new york so we get there occasionally so but mostly you know where to stage where in addition to some corporate boards and things that i'm doing. We're really getting the chance to spend some time with family which is good. Who's got it better than us. Who's got better than us. Only nobody nobody awesome dave. Thank you so much for joining us on the podcast. We appreciate your time and one thing that. I just want to bring up because i was gonna your notes and this is. I think that <hes> people don't under- understand dan how important this was back. When you were the domino ceo you guys in introduced a pizza tracker for your pizzas which now every single delivery service grub bob ubereats every they all utilize a vision another vision of what dave brennan had so. I know it's not very off michigan brand. I understand that but right right this second literally the way food is delivered is because of a vision he ad when he was a dominant toys r. us or coming storm back to that's right realism rian some stores open which is good. It's an interesting story. I very quickly wrap up but it's it's. I think a story of how good ideas come from from a lotta places so you know i'll take an itty bitty little credit for that but we we we had this problem where we had a lot of our customers who we call them control freaks i would bet there's a couple of them over here who they like to control things and when we they got your believe the main mckenzie nothing both of you and the control freaks were nervous about calling on the store given an order and then waiting and hoping that it arrived on time and it would be right so they were always run to carry out store because they could control the transaction so we were sitting around wrestling with. How do we get more customers from this segment. We call the control freaks and one of the guys that i hired to work for a u._p._s. and he said well you know a u._p._s. We have package tracker. You know you can go online at any time you and i just kind of went patchy package extractor pizza track. We can do that and that's how it was born. It was just that simple and kind of the idea from somebody else and developed than yeah now. It's become a it's all do anyway lots of stories maybe next time you got it. Thank you for inviting me this do they. Thank you coming up next. Jack talk here on attack each day the harbaugh's podcasts this is jack talk. I wanna listen. I want to be better.

Old fine hair grows in places that it hadn't been before welcome to hashtag jack talk cypher jack talk here to attack each day the harbaugh's podcast everybody's favorite segment of the week jack would have forced this week. We lost lost a great one this week darryl drake <hes> pittsburgh steelers wide receiver a met him in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight at western kentucky university he was on the previous staff and we had had an opportunity to interview all the different coaches and one of the great interviews that i've ever been associated with he came in inter viewing him for the job job and it turns out that he taught me a great deal about life and football on that particular day came in he says coach. I think i'm about ready to get out of coaching and and do something something else. He said i've been watching this and i believe in coaching family faith and football in developing young people and i'm not seeing that right now is as a coach and i'm gonna give one more crack if you'll give me an opportunity. I'm going to give one more crack staff and like to prove to myself that it football ball is what i what i think it is and he was with us he was with us for three or four years and interesting thing he coached three different positions wide receiver defensive back and quarterback that coach in knows years and it was always coach. What can i do for the team. You lost the secondary coach. I know you wanna move the staff a little bit i would. I'd love to go coach. Secondary are always the team the team the team and then later he left to go to the university of georgia he coached <hes> hines ward down there who ended up with the pittsburgh steelers and and then off to baylor and then the university of texas with mack brown and then he got his chance to coach an approach with the chicago bears for six seven years off to arizona cardinals where he coach larry fitzgerald and the other night i watched an interview where they talked to learn fitzgerald after the arizona game and all he could talk about darryl drake family man and <hes> football coach and father figure in his life and i mean motion in his face this told you the respect and love that he had <hes> for darryl l. drake and then <hes> darrow went off to the pittsburgh steelers coast there last year one year and of course interesting for us ravens and steelers and i promise you've fourteen games regular season games a year. I was rooting for darryl drake and pittsburgh steelers and then the receivers that are on the steeler team talking about about darrell and tommy talking about darryl drake just reemphasize that interview that we had that he we stayed in coaching in the number of lives that that he's changed in for jackie and may our hearts prayers sheila his wife and his three. We don't just one last quick story were there. I can't remember what year it was. He came in one data to smile on his face coach. You gotta listen to this and i thought he's he's gonna play an interview by paul brian or he's going to play an interview by some coach some technique you gotta listen to this and he was a cassette and he put it into one of those old portable cassettes and music started to play and then the most beautiful voice everyone here was singing and it was his one of his daughters and he had he had taped that song and he wanted wanted me to hear it and he wanted me to have the cassette and it was on my desk and every once in a while you'd be they're working on something.

That's not what my love is says when we're fighting. No I grew up first of all I'll take you back to the beginning. I was born in Queens. Raise as a small younger all in the Bronx and Ten my family moved to Puerto Rico. My Mother's Puerto Rican I'm half. Puerto Rican so my mother was a college professor, so we moved to PR to buy among which is where a lot of my family is. And I spent two years perfecting my non Spanish my my new Ricans Spanish. You had a Eureka invoice. Well no well. No, just no accent if you're talking. Spanish. I'll read it right it and speak it. and I learned to do that. I learned how to speak it I learned Spanish before I learned English. Because my mother was in school, my father was working, but my grandmother, who spoke no English whatsoever was my caretaker, so I learned. Spanish, before I learned English or probably simultaneously and this mother's mom, my mother's mom maternal side of the family as Puerto Rican, my father's from culpeper, my father has transitioned, but my people were from culpeper Virginia, so yeah, Spanish English but New York, and then when we. We moved back to the states I grew up in Harlem as a teenager. So I was informed by this amazing upbringing that I had a New York a cosmopolitan city with people from all you know spectrums, all parts of world and also show economic backgrounds so my when I consider my formulation, my development, it's as a result of being in this Gumbo of humanity in New York City. You were how you came back to I was about twelve twelve, so I spent my formative teenage teenage years in Harlem the Schaumburg and I have a question aloe. Yes, okay. I have. I'm currently working on a project right now. That I didn't even know existed until about a year ago. but the world doesn't seem to know. That on the summer of nineteen sixty nine. a festival was thrown in Harlem, with. In short, we call it Black Stock It was Nina Simone Slam. The family stone of the staple singers. Jesse, Jackson literally like when you see the footage it's. Forty Thousand People in a Harlem Park. In the summer of sixty nine. Was it Mount Morris Park Mount Morris Park. Yes, okay, I, he's recollection of Moore's park that period, and well no sixty-nine, no but Mount Morris Park. Absolutely because I spent many times. They're for free concerts. Really Yeah So. What was the environment? Musically In Harlem like because as much as I hear about. The the folklore of of Harlem. not even the jazz since but. Post Jazz I I don't have a feel of what the culture was like. It was I. Mean we're talking about? The birthplace of the Harlem Renaissance Harlem has always been a capital, a Mecca of music and culture so I, grew up hearing music everywhere in Harlem. It was blasting out of people's radios in their cars and their homes. The free concerts we had a program in Harlem called Jazz Mobile. That was founded by. Are you familiar with this Dr? Billy Taylor okay was the founder of Jazz Mobile, and it provided free lessons to inner city youth, so for me. I studied the flute, and my teacher was the legendary Jimmy Heath. What yeah! Yes Jimmy Heath was my flute teacher, and ironically years later I ran into him in Saint Louis. He was with his brothers. the heath brothers. Yeah, and he was. We were in the Ritz. Carlton. I was there to attend Steve mckeever wedding Steve mckeever, the founder of Hidden Beach who signed Jill, Scott and many others from Philadelphia Kendra at such a radio person I I wouldn't have I. Have History trying to get you there the. So anyway I saw. Jimmy and Jimmy calls me over, and he says to his brother's Deanna was my best student I wanted to borehole. Go through the floor because. AM So bad. Off. You probably wasn't pretty. Well lovely but honey. You know you have to be able to improvise. I just did not have those skills. I had an appreciation a sensitivity a passion for the music, but I just don't have any talent. So, always hear about From from the generation that came before I came up and then I guess like I'm. I'm one of the last people that like the idea of like music appreciation and who knows what this? Instrument is in Oh. I WANNA. Try that Viola. Thing? But was it just expected even if you didn't have musical talent. Was it just expected like for a non musical person. You saw the flute was like okay. I know actually my first boyfriend that I lost my virginity to from Brooklyn Lethal, he played the flute so as a result of being around him and intimate circumstances. One day I just picked up his instrument. Is Not. Ahead and I started. was. took. Studied the flute. Yeah. That's interesting so to your question. Amir, the question about music music in Harlem was everywhere and even people who did not have talent or could play an instrument. Had An appreciation we used to when we got music. We would sit together in a group and devour an album. We would read the liner notes because back in the day. Everybody did liner notes for their music. We would read where it was recorded. Who was the engineer? Where everything all of the details? The minutia of record not just did we absorb the music? Of course we were smoking weed that taboo. Okay we're smoking. Right. All right. Yeah, and we would just. We were very knowledgeable when it came to music that was expected of us, especially growing up in Harlem. That was the expectation that you were down. What whatever was new coming out that you were going to their shows that you are up on what was happening musically? Do you have any siblings? I Don I'm an only child. Yeah cousins I love. Your. Back tons of so, how did now? This is unusual, because usually It's the trickle cultural. Trickle down. A system of the older sibling puts the youngest one oriented something and. Absorb so, who was your? My father, my. HIP enough to know. My father played the radio all the time we listened to. WABC the good guys and we also listen to ww. RL, which was African, American am station so I grew up hearing. All the the mic sounds because back in the day when I grew up, they played black and white artists on WABC. But then ww rl only all black music, so that's where I got my ears, my daddy big on music, but the only all black station was the am wwafl. Yeah, the AM station. Who who were the personalities of the day? Enoch Gregory just. You know the good guys. I can't remember all the names. Cousin Brucie were a ton of radio personalities, but the first woman that I ever heard on the radio via Higginson. By. Well she was on WB, L. ASPIRIN FRANKIE, Crocker and we're talking. Early, seventies because I graduated from high school seventy one the the year that Marvin Gaye released. What's going on that that is the soundtrack to my life? That's the music. The Franklin. May Seventy one. Yeah, yeah, it did when it came out. Can you imagine going out into the world? Being new wasn't going. Wow! Mine so yeah, then W. L. I. B. FM became. WB L. S. from that's where I heard by Higginson and when I heard her I just fell in love I was enamored with her voice her her style. It sounded like you were in her bedroom. It sounded very intimate, and that's what I. M You absolutely absolutely. She was on air personality like she was. She was an on air personality. She still on the radio now on the station that's online in New York, and what, but she was Doris Troy's sister, and she did the play Mama don't want to sing. That's by Higginson who produced it endorsed. Troy just won't look that was her sister so? Yeah Am Frankie Crocker I'm a graduate of Frankie Crocker, university, but it's on A. School the Frankie Graduate School okay, so the magnitude of the power that Frankie Crocker had on New York and Nash Nationwide Frankie Crocker was a radio personality and a programmer I would say he was the dean of FM Black Radio at its at the beginning, and he program WB. One of seven point five in New York, and later other stations around the country, but he had the most effortless style. Very, commanding presence the radio and he introduced New York audiences to Barry White disco the sound of Philadelphia, but he would also mix, and maybe he would throw in some Frank Sinatra. He could do that because he was the program director, but it was an eclectic sound, and he said it was three hundred sixty degrees of the total experience of black music, so Frankie Crocker hired me. Me after I spent two years in Washington, DC at W. H. U. R. Ninety six point three, which is also a very important radio station in the history of of music and black radio, because it was the home of the original quiet storm as created by Cathy Hughes, who is my best friend? Also the founder Radio One TV one interactive. One urban one left Melvin Lindsey Mellon. Was He wasn't the first host, but he became. Yeah, there was some there were two other hose. Exactly video soul and I still black. Pass from from HIV. Exactly that's very true. But! Melvin was also my protege because he was a student. Howard University owned the radio station, but it was a commercial outlet. In the middle of the dial and Frankie Crocker liberally borrowed from what we were doing in Washington DC okay. After a while, but that's where I started as Ebony, moonbeams at. John. Howard University I did not go to Howard I. I was very very silly. I was very caught up I was hired on the eve of my on nineteenth, th birthday by gentleman named Bob Nighthawk Terry who's also another legendary. If you saw the movie talk to math federal painter by. Percents character, but that was the gentleman who hired me and gave me my break in radio in DC, so two years after being ebony, moonbeams and being in DC I. got a call the hotline from Frankie. Crocker offered me a job I in Saint Louis. That didn't work out too well. I went to Saint. Louis in all due respect to Saint Leu. It was just too small for me. Okay. Just wasn't my momma went with me, and she was like Oh. Not Too much culture here we got. We have to go someplace southland worker. It's true. My mom is from there is. ELMO! Jerry curls until like two thousand. Yeah, that wasn't that wasn't working for me. And then he offered me a job in Chicago that didn't work either because the owners called me and said the money that Mr Crocker offered you. We cannot afford to pay you and I was like okay deuces, and then he called me again on the hotline at W.. HR At this point I was doing mid days, and he said come come to New York come come to be allowed I'm home home. This is. The episode I've been waiting for all questions I've had about every city. Can you explain why? Is such an important Mecca for black music and being the chocolate city and. Even even now today like shows that we do in DC. Are Way Different? Maybe maybe Detroit comes in a comes in a close second. But. What is it about DC? Some assuming that the the the musical diet. That the city's raised on. That determines the the caliber of artists that. That come through the city. Am I correct? Yeah, you mentioned chocolate city. It was definitively chocolate city when I was there. It's been ultra gentle, fried gentrified now, so it is no longer chocolate city, but the DC that you're referring to you know it's the DMV, so it's the District of Columbia, Virginia and Maryland, but this you had the migration. You have people coming from the south, even the Midwest moving to DC for government jobs. It's the government city. It's the in the nation's capital largest black middle class in the country. There you go, so it created this middle class, but it people who had disposable income and you know music is. Is At the core of our DNA for black folks all due respect, everybody else but for us. I think we're born in our DNA with with a sponge that can absorb all the genres of our creation, and so in DC. You had this this middle class. You have people who had disposable income. They bought tickets to every show. They went to the clubs. You know it was just part of our culture to to embrace music and the artists that came through town, not to mention Gogo Well Gogo, of course, lew genre that was born exclusively in DC and Chuck Brown. All of those people. Okay, friend San. We finally have this conversation. About Gogo? Yeah. Bring, I just wanted wh. What would you say was the origin the beginning of Gogo early seventies by the time I got to DC in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy three. When I got there, it was in full swing chess, rabble rabble fong. All of that was in full swing. Thing the thing is, is that okay? I. Know that early soul searcher forty fives I have more break beaten traditional. Right and all that stuff that that Chuck Brown did before like okay. This is authentic Gogo however. I truly believe and this is where this. My this is a very unpopular take. On the History Gogo But I, believe the DNA of Gogo starts. With. Grover Washington Juniors Mister Magic. Heard that I've heard that before of that before. Rhythm Palette of Gogo is. The magin. Seventy three. And so. Seventy one. Matt. I would assume that. With that sort of backdrop. We definitely played at ally. That was. Bands have played it and played it and played it and put it into the repertoire. Yes Shit in DC. So. I wonder if any DC music historians will. Back me up in the fact that no. Matter. The everyone. Within I started in seventy two. Alternative. Seventy-three it was it was every everywhere I mean you could not go to a club and not here gold music. It was just so could. They have been an influence on him. Could possibly you know reverse though I'm here okay, I'm I'm just saying that most Gogo that I know of the first. Example that it was truly pleased to me, was around seventy, eight, seventy nine. And I but I've investigate investigated. Many of those DC funk bands. In all my record collections and that kind of the. Music was still post soul post. P funk that sort of thing and so. I'm just putting out there I'm gonNA. Find somebody to be talking about. The of Marvin Gaye Boom Talk to Mike Martin. Duke Ellington. That's right. We're Marvin. Gaye got his been. WHO'D HE COME TO PHILADELPHIA? Thank you. WanNa. Play. You WanNa. Do a Saturday on us. Ok Okay. I'm not I'm not gonNA find anybody. His argument. So of of your formative years what city? What city do you feel? Had the Moose culture as far as? Impact enrich us in black music is a DC. Is it New York? It's all sort of a combination so again. I grew up in Harlem. I spent radio formative years in DC chocolate city with black folks, and then I came to Philadelphia and Philadelphia at the point when I came to Philadelphia I came because I started dating Kenny Gamble and instantly fell in love with him, so when I came to Philadelphia, the sound of Philly was in full throttle and we're talking. Talking Harold Melvin and the blue notes Teddy was still in the group when I came, he started as the drummer, and then moved into the lead position but it was Patti, labelle and the People's choice on the tramps and The del Phonics and the stylistics, and all of that was going on when I initially came to Philly in the mid Seventies. In the first time, I really came here was with Jean Carne. Who is the Godmother to my oldest son cleave? Gene was about to sign her deal with gamble, but I had met gamble a year earlier in DC when I was hosting an OJ concert, and we formed our friendship, but when I first visited Philadelphia International was with Jean when she signed her deal. Was it always on three thirteen broad street? It was three. Oh nine. Thirteen was my high school Performing Arts Yeah three hundred one just to go back to a Chuck Round Gogel Mr. magazine found a quote from Chuck Brown about that. Yeah, and he basically admits he got from grover, but says it, grover. They both got from somewhere else in the quote is all I. Did was break the beaten half. I got it from Grover for sure, but we really both got that from the spirit from Gospel. It's an old church beat. Look at that. I'll give you half a dose. I. Okay! All right okay. Go.

Here's something good is show from the Seneca Women podcast network, and Iheartradio, it's a great way to start your day on the positive side of life. The old adage that knowledge is power has never been more true knowledge has the power to quell anxiety and calm fears in times like these, we may find ourselves worrying that even the simplest tasks we've been doing. Our entire lives will have a negative consequence, but here's something good for today. We spoke to Mary Johnson a senior scientist from tied a detergent. We've come to rely on for the past seventy five years in this week's episode. She shares valuable tips on how to do laundry. In the time of Corona one less thing for us all to worry about for more tips from Mary a coupon from tied go tied dot com slash podcasts. I'm Kim as early listened to hear something good on the iheartradio, APP. Apple podcasts or wherever you listen to your favorite shows. So Philadelphia In in the. Really at the height of it first of all, do you credit gamble enough for? Being the proprietors. Of Disco, minium said that absolute Isaak's start at first because he had strings in. Barry White because he's the first to go two hundred twenty nine palms, but. You know as far as the the the sheen. McClellan plus you know gnarly. Earl Young, young. Young Earl will not let you get out of a room without giving him props. Early! The drummer. This very second and forever. Earl young the founder of the tramps and the drummer, but also the studio drummer for many not all of the gamble. huff songs so I definitely give them credit A. Cell to he did he? He played with everybody, but he was the primary drummer for many of the gamble. Have sessions so yeah, so when I came here initially, it was heady because there was all kinds of music. It was jazz. It wasn't just gamble and often what they were doing it was I knew of the tradition of Great Gospel Artists. The DIXIE hummingbirds I met Ira Tucker when I first moved here Ira Tucker, senior, You know the we're talking about the ward singers all of that Rosetta Authority. You know Fontana talking about that yesterday. was that Authorpe the mother of rock and roll here Philadelphia really yes, did not know that what I didn't know that. I hope inducted into the rock and Roll Hall. Don't you know King Brit? had. He was on his big sister Rosetta. Did object. Now. She wasn't born here, but she lived. He left okay lived here and she died here aren't so yes. was that authorities each one teach for? At it to the person that keeps on put an Beechy Thompson from the Dixie hummingbirds as my great grandfather. And I'm the one that keeps raising it so please. Put that out there, too? exhausted. That's because every journalist is like a three generations and I'm like no I. Be Thomson, not my grandfather so. As one and put that out there, that's important. So. Not like. Are there any notable? Historical Philadelphia? SMU's stories that you've seen firsthand that. So many. Dan. You left the blue notes. Like what? Oh well teddy was my neighbor, he was my physical Barrel Cup of sugar neighbor, and also one of my closest friends till his transition and fact I delivered the obituary at his memorial. Watching. Teddy pen, degrasse leave the. Situation with Harold because they were fighting, they were duke it out I mean they were having physical fights. It was abusive and out of control by the time he left the group, but to see Teddy pendergrast go from being with the group, and then becoming one of the biggest artists in soul music, and and he was crossing over pop. He was going to become a movie star. He had a teddy jeans line. Mersal. Yes, Teddy Jeans, but to witness that was pretty spectacular just to see the energy that happened as a result of the sound of Philadelphia worldwide. That was pretty heady. Did you have tons of stories with Jerry Artists? Did you have any influence in getting him? Finally settled down with a natural as opposed to what no absolutely not. Many hairstyles during the duration. Of influence in his life. Do the Shirley Temple Yeah. Before me, and and had I known him at the time, I would say. The, man you. Know Teddy Teddy was quite something extraordinary. You batum Amir. Yeah, yeah, you were in the room with him, you know. He had a magnetic energy unlike which same thing that Marvin had There's only a few people Sam Cooke had at that. Jensen Qua- Miles Davis head miles. Davis my good friend Miles Davis definitely. came. Raking. Miles, Davis okay. We're talking. Early Seventies when I was in DC and am to May who is a beloved his mind connection, another heath can well. That's how I met him through his father. Jimmy he but he was playing percussion, he was playing congas with miles, and they came to DC and I was on the air whol, he said, come by check out the show, so after the set he introduces me two miles, and he says miles meet Deanna. The enemy miles and miles says. Harry me. Our you. I'm standing there looking at him like. No. And he says well. Why not and I said 'cause I just met you I. Don't know you like that, but I had on this long white dress and a white gala I had rap, and he says to me. Look like a mother. fucking bribe. So. Bounds there. We developed very dear friendship and went on for years until started dating Kenny Gamble and gamble was I. I'm not having Miles Davis around my. It's not happening. In, town. So, but we. We stayed friends for years. The original coffee shop tick the. The The the the the new being got us that. We would think of head wraps, incense. Ninety four. But one thousand nine hundred Jews so meals though it was like me, but I was after it was a mere. It was the post civil rights era. It was saying loud. I'm black and I'm proud that natural. It was that period of awakening with black folks when we were like you know no more no more dogs biting us more. It was passed Montgomery and the boycotts where we were like. We recognize economic power and our beauty and strength. We know once we came from, but once the Nixon era sort of set in, and you know. The leaders were killed in sixty eight. A lot of that just cools off and you know. The seventies was mad hedonism. Oh. I'd. That how? It was Nina Simone Aretha Franklin. Say It loud. I'm black and I'm proud that happened in the seventies, James Brown all of that. Was the seventies. Okay so? You, know my uncle butch who stole my grandmoms TV yeah. Here we go your. Brothers coming back from Vietnam. They were distressed, and many of them came back with habits heroine I. Mean You know so? We were starting to deal with crack and all of that happening in our communities so so there was a lot going on where you discouraged at all with. As! I will say that afrocentricity. Had its second wave eighty, six, eighty, seven with the Bob Generation. But was there a period between? Seventy nine eighty. Post disco between eighty and eighty five. We you just felt like. Oh! Okay, we're. We're done this. And now we're bourgeois were getting jobs where we're up firming are here. because. No because I recognize that we're not monolithic. We're we're all we're. We're shades and variations were not all one thing, so Indiana's always been this black, so I know me. Black Music Month started in the seventy, and he continues also. That's a whole. Yet another thing now we're not monolithic, so I saw types of some folks will boozy. Some were still wearing their natural, some aware and braves. It was a whole lot of stuff going on right, but I'm just saying that you are unapologetically black. I'll, and what else can I be, but that's the thing, too for some people to. Kind of spook that sat by the door their way into society they might have to. Change clothes a little bit now first of all remember so for me. I I talked about graduating from Frankie Crocker University, but then I was greatly influenced by one of the blackest. Can Gambles. He was my man. so I was raised up as a woman by a strong black man. That's that was my education, and then again my parents, my family I'm very clear where I come from and who I am, and so, and it was up very black and my mother, although she was Puerto Rican. She recognized that she's an African woman. First Time I went to Africa went with my Momma, we went to Senegal. Ghana, and my mother disappeared one day, and we will I wear as Nancy Wears Nancy well. My mother went to the marketplace and got her garb. She got some sisters to. She came back garbed up. Okay and has several outfits and my mother was like Yo I'm an African woman. I know this, and that's the spirit. In which I was raised I was raised with a great deal of consciousness and exposure to black folks so growing up. In Harlem, for me, it was the Schaumburg. It was Langston Hughes. It was the Negro Bull Company. It was all this great energy about blackness around me. Do you think that's a little bit of a some northeast privilege? When it comes to to black folks in a way to to be able to continue that 'cause I see what a mirror saying and sometimes it depends on where you are to physically. Simply, I mean they have that black conversation on talking about the difference between the South and Northeast and. No there are differences. We were definitely, but I celebrate our commonalities I recognize the differences but. You know I just came from a wellspring of black culture growing. Up in Harlem. And the Bronx the home of their pop rap. So you know for me early, so let me tell you this to also when I was a teenager, I met Roy Ayers I met a woman named Myrna Williams who manage Roy Ayers so fifteen meeting. Roy Ayers and hanging out with people like Roy Ayers and and then Jimmy Heath who I mentioned to you, and then when I. I was about seventeen. A girlfriend of mine named Brenda introduced me to Stevie wonder, so I met Stevie I call him Stephen I met Stephen before. I even got into radio and he invited me into the studio. He was doing music of my mind. Yes, music of my mind, so I was exposed, and then I mentioned the flute I decided to take lessons because I still was China. Bobby but then I. Approached a gentleman to take flute lessons and his name is Hubert long greatest flouting of all time I will tell you that I never got a flute lesson. taught me. So I started dating Hubert laws, and as a result of that relationship. I was exposed even greater to He would take me to Rudy Van Gelder Studio. Damn see this guy. to see ti at the time who did I? Guess my favorite. Retailers cree Taylor Rudy, Van Gelder Hank Crawford Esther. Phillips Grover Washington Junior Freddie Hubbard. Kudos stuff right, and they performed with each other. They record it with each other so I would go with Hubert the sessions, but one of my favorite sessions. I think you can all appreciate. This is one day Hubris said he had a session and he took me deposited me in the control room, and who was in the Control Room Quincy, Jones and Donny hathaway. First Time meeting Donnie and. Some Charleston blue is what they were recording and Hubert was on that session, so I sat in the control room with them, and of course at that point I knew Donnie was, he was very shy, demure, quiet, and quincy calls aretha Franklin and introduces. Donny to Aretha on the phone and he tells aretha you got to hear him. Donny Hathaway, and of course he was signed to Atlantic records so yeah. Your life these things aren't phasing you like. I'm young I'm I'm? I'm taking it all in just forrest gump. Aright from me it set an appetite for me because what I have discovered over time is that I am most intrigued and attracted to the exceptional and that's what I have had all of my life. I have been involved friendships. Romances with people who are supremely gifted I would say. That's what I like. Really Outta here your opinion on. Life in two thousand nineteen. And where music is going. Well I never a dull moment. That's how I approach life daily with human beings seven billion of us right finally. We were talking about this last night. I fly in the family stone set. Everybody is a saw. We all have our unique shine. We have our individuality. We contribute to this, and that keeps our planet revolving around the sun and tell me I'm shook Steve. and. Already, you're already forced to listen to everything from Chile eighteen and back because she's a media coach. So when you say you're going to be blue faces, media goes. Black. Out on Coda. Say so what? So, what was the disrespect? You're still doing media coaching. Yes. Entails because. I had this. Okay. Coast Yourself in the mouth. Off. Got You meeting. Yeah, because I was I was I did this thing for NBC. Sunday morning, and then immediately thereafter. But they told me did the guy. He told me he did a good job, but It's a it's a lot. I'll be honest with you. Guys after episode ten. You win got so onto us like now. You say it too much like obamacare. You Are you are? Labels was actually your point back then when I was editing all of the. Millers I call those spillers. They're all part of natural conversation. Over. Overuse of it is like. What? I'm saying interesting because it's not a lot of media coaches I'm like Dang. Who'd you get Great Guy Mother? Because really there's a handful of people who are very niche part of the industry, but I I do I call it artist development human development with an emphasis on media, but for me it's I got a lot of young artists, so I'm schooling them on what I feel are the rudiments of things they need to know. Teachers teach. Student. Lead to. That was I was approached by the or Cohen called me directly after the Taylor swift incident. Asked me, he said my friend needs help Can you meet with Connie? This was months after he had already gone to Hawaii. He was recording. He came back and I met with him at his home in New York and. He really didn't well first of all. I was approached to coach him when his first album was coming out and he didn't want any coaching. Ran into him someplace and I said I was supposed to coach you. He says I know how to handle the media. I know what to do I got this I. Don't need any any any I was like all brother. I love your music. Peace and blessings, but later I went to his home and spent the afternoon with him and we talked about Taylor. Taylor swear we talked about life in general I took him a black obelisk, and I gave that to him as a gift, and he was like well. What is this is an obelisk, and it's Egyptian, and you'll see it in Rome, and you'll see it in Europe and South America. You'll see it everywhere, but it's Egyptian looking at right now. The Obelisk, okay. DC Washington Monument. The. yeah simple. But. We wound up not working together. He really did not want it. It was Lee or who wanted it for him and felt that he needed, but Tania's the type of artist you don't. He's he's. Right so, can you give us a? What do I do? Hope, you do. Yeah because even now I still feel like an amateur and doing this. We're GONNA. have to give her a check after we're done, right. Chimera jump on my record for free. That I never charged with German of real. Why said that on the Allenstein literally don't what do you? What is there something else you charge for walking in her? No. Cartridge. I'm at a place now where you know. Like? Germans my passion my passing, Sean, we'll let me DJ for free, but like you know if I like the personnel German and nothing about it, okay? What am I gonNA? Do with it? Two Thousand Bucks like. Ended! Late Two thousand bucks for the average person as a whole lot of money they're thinking about. Saying. That half of my salary, the show going to the staff so. I like for you. That would not be a lot of money, but to the person's giving it. It would be a lot, so it's like I'm just. Saying, but so, what would be a better way? Deanna to clean that up. Exceed work with Ti says the beginning, so I know you know how to clean after the fact is. It's different with every artist. It's different I Taylor have a program I call it the influence system and its influence, meaning the ability to prevail upon the thoughts and feelings of others, and that's what artist do and I don't just work with. Artists also worked with athletes like Alan Iverson heavyweight boxer Roy Jones. Junior I worked with Michael. I worked with Michael Vick as well when he came out of prison, and that was ti called me one day and had Michael Vick on the phone and said Diana's my person. You need to get with Deanna Deanna, but Michael was not very happy when he came out of jail, because everybody kept asking about the dog fighting and and he was like. Like look I just served two years in jail. I don't want to talk about this anymore. And I was like Michael let me bring you to reality. You'll be talking about this for the rest of your life. It doesn't matter even though you went to prison. This is part of your story now and you know people are very attached to their dogs. And you were involved in situational. I hate dogs people. Next. Bill. One of the mini, so people Taylor for instance I'll give you the little Kim story so little Kim was on the red carpet and. And Howard. Stern asked her. What was it like to have sex with a big fat, Ugly Guy? Pick small. Question she just wanted to fight him, but she was on the red carpet. It was I. Think the MTV Music Awards, and so she kept it moving, but she was very upset very angry at this time, she was signed to Atlantic a little later, and they said you have to do Howard Stern. This is when he was still doing terrestrial radio before Sirius Xm and Kim didn't WanNa do it, and they said okay. We've got the perfect person to help. Prep you for the interview with Howard Stern. I went to the trump tower. She was getting her face beat at five in the morning, and we sat and worked on how to approach Howard what to say me anticipating the questions that he would ask her, and also I protected her. I was like if we're not gonNA let him ask you about Biggie. You're going to bring up biggie before he does control narrative, providing control the narrative and providing the strategy, and how we were going to deal that so very early in the interview, she says to Howard. You ambig- would have been boys. I think y'all would've been friends, and he says really like why. Why do you say that? And she said because you have a big personality, and so did big and I could see the two of you being boys, so at that point she disarmed. Market not say anything negative about him. And that was her concern because she was like. If attack, my man one more time, we're going to be fighting up in that studio and. She just took control of the interview and the narrative, and she just had Howard Stern purring and in the palm of her hand. That's because we prepared for him and fact on that particular album. She had done a song where she shouted him out. And she said Howard you pave the way for me as an artist who deals with sexual issues. You paved the way with your fights with the FCC talking about sex all of that, so Howard thank you. All part of how we trapped, and when we left, I was in the Green Room Kim came in hug me high five. She was happy with the results. Atlantic was happy. She was pleased. Hauer also. So yeah, so it depends when Charlie Wilson came out of Rehab I worked with him on how to talk about the Rehab Experience, and his his path moving forward usher I. Only worked with him on. He wanted to talk about being dyslexic. He had never discussed it publicly. By. And, that's what we worked on. He was a big star at the point where I worked with him, so it varies, but I also work with new up and coming emerging artists, and they don't know anything about how to radio how to go to television. They don't know they know how to create. They know how to perform, but oftentimes they can't talk about what they do so back to your question. There was a woman at Motown name Mrs Powell, Mrs Maxine Powell. She did the artist development at motown. Gordy right Berry Gordy sisters recommended her because she had an etiquette charm school in Detroit and prepared people to be models. And what have you but remember many of the artists that Berry? Gordy signed out of Motown came straight from the hood from the projects, and they didn't know which fourteen us. They didn't have any idea of what to expect especially with Berry taking them all over the. The world so Mrs Powell prep them so I consider her the Mother of Artist Development and coaching, and then Suzanne to pass came in later, and took over from Mrs Powell, and she worked on prepping the Jackson five specifically so I, also credit Suzanne to pass as being another mother of artist development, so I studied everything that they did who'd he? Who'd you feel your greatest student was? Or is most. Impressed with. That's the cavaliers for. I'm very impressed with. Tip, but I give tip a lot of credit I, mean he? We worked together for eight years anytime. He released a record anytime. He did a book a film TV show whatever he would call me I go to Atlanta to home. We would lock up or I'd go on the road wherever he was, and we would sit lockup, talk, and just what I do, what I did with tip is I. I would give him language an thoughts. I would let him talk to me I express how he felt about whatever it was the music, the book the film, and then I would give him some language in ways to discuss what he had done doing. You're also proud of the Dave Matthews work to right by didn't work with Dave. I worked with the ban I worked with the rest of the band work. This was preparation for The Sunday morning. Show that you did. The Sunday morning. They were doing a special. One of their members had died in a tragic accident. Remember that they did not know how to talk about the passing of their member. With each other they had not discussed the death with each other, so when I came in I, met with the members individually and then collectively so yeah, it's so it varies. What is something that you would say artist? That is an absolutely like. When talking, do's and don'ts of interviewing. Whatever what are the things that you say? Artists like okay, absolutely like do not do this. Don't be on your phone. Don't be disrespectful domain. Do not not make eye contact first of all. I encourage my clients to do their homework. Just like did with you guys I read up on you individually. Oh. No, what did you find more? You know weird. But you know you do your homework. That's the beginning and that's the first tenant that I teach his preparation, so do your homework nowhere. You're going. Know who you're speaking with. A listen to what they've done. If there are print, journalists read something they've written so I give them basic human etiquette and respect. So how'd you pretty much prepare for the first meeting with a client? The same way you do your research? Find out everything you watch. Like do come up with a list of I saw this interview. I didn't like what you said here. With them, it depends on how many interviews they done some artists. I'll sit for instance bowel bowel started as you know is A. Cat. He started as a teenager, and by the time his mother, who was his manager and his publicist. Patty Webster at the time brought me in. He was angry with Germaine. Do Pre and he every interview that he when he was hostile, angry upset, and so they brought me in to calm him down, and to give him a way to express his disappointment and his love for Germain so initially, he was like I. Don't I'm a star? Star I don't need any coaching. The very first his home and he wasn't just wasn't in the frame of mind, so I won't work with someone if they're not willing if they're not open to the process and so I left however the next time I saw him was up at the Sony building and when I got off the elevator, he was standing there and he ran away, never had a man run away from me. allowed. But when he came back, I said give me fifteen minutes fifteen minutes, and then you can leave. And I had ordered all of his interviews, and we sat and watched his interviews and I said all we're going to do. Today is count how many times you say you know what I mean. You know what I'm saying, and then we can get a stops. Yeah, watch a video of yourself there you go. Because when I did the meeting he made me watch me. He filmed me having interview with this guy. And then we watched it, and it's really uncomfortable, and it's really hard to watch, and then you stop 'cause I kept on like not dropping my eyes, and like playing with my hands, and looking like an idiot and I was like. Oh, I look idiot. So Watch yourself hearing yourself. You're absolutely correct, allows you to, but Rome wasn't built in a day. So you don't change overnight, but mindfulness being aware of your ticks of your body language of your lack eye contact whatever it is so studying it. If you really applying yourself will help so that day we watch I said just count. That's all I want you to do was count how many times you say you know what I mean. You know what I'm saying and of course when he counted up to about fifty after watching. This fifteen. Minutes he turns around and says okay. Deanna helped me. At that point that he had a problem in an issue, and he was amenable to the process, he said after Mation, issue. Some validation. How did you get into doing this well? My background is radio as I said. I started selling. He's. At? Interview was the. Because rappers are known as. I've worked with heavy metal. Artists I've worked with pop artist I mean worked with Justin Bieber. On his first album. I worked with Riana on her very first album so I've worked with artists and John Ras Mary. Yeah we. I mean we all need help. Influence entertainment is my company. It is me I'm the one that does the coaching people hiring me for my expertise, my ability and my success, getting people to be better I am about inspiration I am constantly drawing inspiration everywhere and I like helping people be their best, because that's what I aspired to be, but my follow up on bill set, but was the moment though Godmother, because even when you were like I'm going to do this all right so I was managing an artist named Gary Taylor he's a songwriter. Whispers just get. That's right exactly. I was managing asshole. Gary What? Learn. The fact that in the coolest manner. Clean, patch, her out. Yeah I WANNA be your friend. WHO's okay we can work.

Help. I. Will tell you so I managed him and I got dragged into managing. I don't like management is just not my skill set is not carol. I managed care, Riddick as well Philadelphia's own Carol Riddick, but with Gary it was just hard talking with him. In fact, we were in Chattanooga Tennessee in the back of his limousine on a Promo tour. We couldn't afford of road manager road manager, so I went out with him, and he was so difficult the entire trip and I said to him you know Gary. You write these great love songs, but part of your problem is you. You need good love. You need some love you need somebody to. Really do. Lacking and How he goes to the record label says I. Don't WanNa work with her anymore. She reminds me of my x Y. I'm like okay well I. Don't WanNa work with you either furthermore, here's the number for not a psychologist but a psychiatrist. Courtesy.

Inspire me telling him 'cause the song. He says I want to know what good love feels. Good Oh. Yeah Gary, Taylor, but he was signed to Virgin Music was virgin.

The court played altogether as a team only once the nineteen ninety two Olympic gold medal winning Dream Team I'm Jack. McCallum sports illustrated writer, best-selling author and now host of a new podcast the Dream Team tapes, the real story of the greatest team NBA history for decades. I've been reading about basketball and I was lucky enough to follow these players from the earliest days in the NBA all the way to Olympic gold in nineteen ninety-two. That team was another two weeks.

Wait. We didn't even bring up lead origins of black music. We're at the seven. We went in the seventy kilos. Go back in time. Okay, so you are the proprietor, the inventor of black music month. Gamble Okay Ed. Right myself so. Why did you feel that it was necessary? And when when was it i? officiated. Nineteen seventy, eight nine. We went to the White House. We petitioned the White House to President Jimmy Carter was in the house white. Music Fan. For region, Georgia farm and so gamble had gone to Nashville and was very impressed with music city, and the power of the CNA, and what they were doing. They literally established a geographic region and made music the core of what was going on there, so he said we need to do that and the black music industry, so that was the beginning of the A. The black music. Association, and part of that endeavor was to have a period of time where we celebrate the outstanding contributions of people in the past, this generation and one's coming up, so it was really gambles brainchild and then. We were together at the time. I think we were on baby number two. We'd been together for years, and they were local chapters established around the country, but what happened was some years later, when I was producing I am that you referenced earlier? The International Association of African American Music, which was is a non non-membership advocacy organization dedicated to the preservation promotion of black music worldwide, so I wrote President Bill Clinton asking him to host a reception very similar to what Jimmy Carter had done on the White House lawn where we had Evelyn King and tons of people I want to break down that day. Some historic photo Iran. Evelyn Champagne king was Cherry Chuck Berry was there. Joe Williams was there it was interesting to. Wear lately. Really Cosby Show Joey. Jazz Jazz. Me He wasn't. Father. Along singing peaches. It's to be the same guy. so anyway I to Clinton wrote the White House and ask them to hold a similar reception, and they said well we see Jimmy Carter held US reception back in the seventies, but he did not sign a presidential proclamation. Just, go get some legislation. Come back to us and we'll do stuff in the White House and recognize June black music. Mom So took me a few years I had Senator Arlen Specter. who was a Republican from Pennsylvania I had congressman Chaka. Petar I literally. Put my most comfortable pair of shoes, not these manolas. And Grandma? And petitioned and big, and you know brought statistics about the power black music that we're a multi-billion dollar entity. Not just feel good. You know the business. It's a it's an economy and took a few years, but we got legislation passed. Saying June is black music. And, then I went back to the White House and at that point. I had several private meetings in the Oval Office with Bill Clinton and took delegations of people in the industry artist as well as executives. To the white. House and so yeah, so gambling I worked together even after we separated. We are partners in life. We have three kids. We grandson. He's the head of my family. I love of my life. And this was part of our mission in our work. We are about making people aware of black music, and its potentcy, not just economically, but how it informs everything and Body Change Your. mind. Can I think I wanted to ask you about was in regards to unsung because that was how I first came about your work and I told you about it speaking last night how I just kept seeing you pop up in every unsung I was like wow. I got to figure out who she is lady, yes. That was really I'll say oh. Yeah, this lady, so we first met at a work. Fa Live was after the Foreign Shane show. brought. You backstage was always done. Some lady. Oh Shit so. Again Nicolay. Even crazy one thing in every song every every storyline unsown than hip hop hip hop. They were doing so great and then hip hop. What were your personal feelings and When rap star you know dominating? What was your personal feelings on on Rap Music? And how did you make that transition? Whereas maybe some of your other peers were just like. Oh, this is this is bullshit. You seem just from our conversations. You seem to be really open to not just working with rappers, but also just really embracing the culture and Accepting it, so, what was that like for you? I grew up in the Boogie Down Bronx. Rap Music was born, and furthermore of growing up in the late sixties seventies in New York in Harlem. Who did I hear I heard the last poets. I heard the last poets, and for folks who are not up on the last poets. Listen to them and you will hear the seeds. The Beginnings Nikki Giovanni but that's what I grew up on in addition to hearing rap in the Bronx, and that, of course, the sugarhill gang that was revolutionary, so I embraced it, and as it evolved as as as a rap evolved I kept up with it and a lot of the people that I. I worked with in the industry came out of rap. They came out of that, so it was never difficult for me. And far as Unsung is concerned, it started in two thousand eight. The first season was the donny hathaway. Phyllis Hyman the Clark Sisters I didn't do the Clark Sisters, but I did the other ones well first of all I knew Phyllis Hyman. At met Donny Hathaway I played as music from the beginning of him releasing music so oftentimes in these stories that are shared on Unsung. I have first hand knowledge of these people and I'm able and many of them. My friends Phyllis Hyman was there demere. She was to your. You intern I am. Do you remember that? Do you remember seeing Phyllis Hyman walking around? I remember Yes thousand ninety one. Ninety one when we did the first I am liberation. Were your roommate. What are your recollections of me and ninety one Amir? because I was frantic, China shut. See everything earned early. At. Now kind of make the Always, use the the ray KROC Ronald McDonald example of Ray Crock is the power behind the the the movement, whereas people knew Ronald McDonald and thinks that he runs McDonald's puts really the person in power, so I knew you were the person in power and I've just always been one to. Observe from afar so I was about to say. This is probably the most. We've ever been in a room together speaking. In our. Decades history so. Usually, I. H-. You scare the shit out. Crap. I Studied people I'm getting. To be told I'm I'm working on that I'm so insular in in my shell. That I, don't even with. stevie wonder. There luminaries who'd like hey, let's. Let's hang and I'm I'M GONNA I'M GONNA. I've been that way for a long time I'm just slowly getting out of that that that that. Rapunzel protective phase of my life so but no back then I. Used it for everything, it was worth I mean I. Made I think that was the day that I became friends with. Chuck in Hank Took D. and Hank Shockley of public enemy public in public enemy. Oh Really Oh. Yes. Okay, yeah That's how to explain 'cause Amir. You like every year of IM. You like evolved the matriculated. In turn one year then I remember you did like the showcase another year you went to roots. Tribute to like Jazzy Jefferson. Remember when I had the roots at the Kennedy Center. Do you remember I? Remember that was to you performed and talk to a group of kids. That was the public enemy. performance thing yes I remember all four of my Im's. They were crucial. I will say probably the greatest night of my life. Okay I've seen. Mean, where did you? Where did you me? In Your Pin House we. Wonder, on the piano, yes, it was post an event that I honored. That was. Probably the first magical night. For a career that point where it was sorta like. I. Don't belong in the room. That sort of thing that was that was a moment where the best part of that night was Sitting with Andre Fischer. Drummer Rufus and Married at. Natalie So I sat I basically have my first quest love supreme with. And Natalie Cole. While Stevie, wonder's this casually going through his cavalcade hits. In the sweet, it was like three hours like to the go on like He's doing creeping because again. Comeback. Maybe you'll be on the Duke I think we should explain I am I produced an annual music celebration a conference that had panels, luncheons and gala gala where we honored everybody from little. Jimmy Scott to shock Akon. stevie wonder babyface La. Reno dish new addition. Tons of people in this went on for sixteen years. Ask Okay. How hard! Is it to organize. 'cause. I don't feel like you're the I. Don't feel like you're be ray KROC in the position of they got this I feel like your hands on. You Talk to be I. Mean you talk to us and we were not through. You know like did so. I felt as though you had. Your imprint on literally every aspect of from from the the smallest talking session to the networking part of the night to the big gala dinner. How hard was it to? Manage micromanage whatever. How hard was it to organize that event? It was challenging, but I also had a lot of energy, and again the passion and commitment to preserve and promote our music, and like you said I wasn't even aware. That Hang Shockley was there. I mean there were so. Everybody came holly every Jimmy Castor. Everybody came. It was just a magnet for artists, and again because of me being on the radio one, too, because of my relationship with gamble of three, my partner, the time also had a lot of relationships so it it facilitated, and I'm passionate. Letter writer I'm a letter writing motherfucker okay. So my letters just again, the passion that I have for culture music, so I got all those. I paid no one. All the years that people came in and do tributes and pay anybody. As is it important to remember names and make connections sure? Absolutely, it's this. It's a relationship business. It's all about your relationships and how you connect with people, it's a give and take so relationships can get you places sometimes where money can't. Absolutely at the end of the day is how you feel about another. Somebody it don't even matter the check on good so with for instance with the roots I mean you know I. Rich was a tough one, but I went passionately and I thought you guys were very talented. Recognize that's the other thing. I have a good year an eye for talent back to 'em to me who I know that you guys have had on the show 'em to introduce me to spike Lee. We were at a party in Brooklyn he had just finished shooting. She's gotTa. Have it? Just finish and I met Spike and I. Love Cinema so immediately I was interested in his film and him, and that's when we started developing our friendship, and then it's one point. He's like you. Stevie, wonder friends, and I was like. Yeah, he said I would love to meet Stevie. You come up. He wrote about it in his books. I introduced spike Lee to Stevie one. Votes TV and I said I called him. I said Stephen. Talented filmmaker is going to be one of the most brilliant directors of our time, and of course that has come to pass, so yes I'm very proud of that introduction, so you are a bridge. What other bricks connections have you? Many many many many many really I. Mean I'm I? Want I just I like US connecting I like us being productive from the energy that we create. I love that and like I, said I. Think what makes me a great artist. Development Coach is that I'm interested in seeing people. Reach their maximum. Potential So so a Lotta connections I, mean I feel as I earlier in our conversation. I am attracted to the gift it. I am attracted to the talented tenth. I'm attracted to people who are exceptional and I have been blessed to have had relationships with these people through the course of my experience, and it feeds me. It gives me the energy to propel me further to help others I believe. I was put on this planet to inspire I'm amused. I'm real clear on. What I am I am immune name though songs. Darn dollar baby well I've been told that was written for me. Not. GotTa play about a player Salah. Lots of songs I mean George Cables wrote Ebony Moonbeams, Piano player and up. I was told that he heard my song my on my show and wrote it and then Bobby Hutchison recorded. Ebony moonbeams and then Freddie Hubbard, who was a friend recorded Ebony moonbeams saw. Yeah, so is that name moonbeams come from I was walking down the street in New York I was starting a TV show while I was at City College in New York went in as the major had to change that real quick I, told you because that wasn't working and I saw spotlight going through the moon, and I needed a name for my show and I was like. Oh, there's a Moonbeam and everything at that time was lack right ebony. Ebony so I, just put Ebony moonbeams together, and that was the birth of my radio handle while I was in. DC and it's just kind of followed me all my life. In fact, gamble calls mean moonbeams to this day, so that's kind of like his name for me, but yeah, and you know I always wanted, and I've met presidents and leaders, and all manner of celebrity and and people, but the person that I wanted to meet the most. Was Gordon Parks. As a young girl, I saw an exhibition called. Harlem Mamma Mine at the Metropolitan Museum and that just us, so the photographs of Gordon Parks for the first time and James Vanderbeek. And I just became totally enamored with their narrative, and how they documented not just black people, but people period, and so for me, my mission became. Meeting Gordon Parks and I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out who I knew. Who could introduce me to him? And what have you and I was not very successful? Gave me a Gordon Part I should buy. Yes. Absolutely did you ever get to meet him? Well again I told you I'm a passionate. Yes I kept writing him. I kept writing until one day he had a vicious gatekeeper. Her name is Joanna Furore Fury. She is a photographer, but she was his assistant as well and she was like well Mr. Parks is busy Mr Parks, said Mr. it was always an excuse, and then finally one day because I never stopped writing him kept writing him telling him how his photography his art. For many who do not know Gordon Parks Direct Chaff. Injury the learning tree. He's He was a great director in addition to being a fabulous photographer and a writer, and then one day I got the call. Mister proximate would like to invite you to his home for lunch, and so needless to say the day he opened the door, and I saw him just as pinching myself and we a white button down G. Show. Yeah. Shirt was Kinda Open. Real sexy, and but we became really good friends to the point where the day of his memorial service I went, and his daughter came over to me and said you know. My father spoke very fondly of you, and that meant everything to me because he was very dear to me, we were very very close. Friend Gordon Parks Bob Stories Note that Gordon Parks. The Great Day in Harlem. Utah remix no. Yeah, he shot that wow. Yeah that one. That was his his shot It was really weird like it. It was that day was September. Twenty Eighth Nineteen. Ninety eight, the whatever equipment day. Life Young Star blacks lawyer and love movement. Try like that day was such a surreal day in hip hop history and he just stayed he first of all I think the camera at the time Cina Lester was still. editor editor at double excel so. Again, you. Know I. Just WanNa. Watch him like watch them from afar. and. It was so chaotic that day because that was really the day that. Classic Hip Hop. And kinda current hip hop was meeting for the first time. You're watching like Rock Kim Rackham losing over Tariq was one of the weirdest things in my life ever seen. and. Like the locks meeting fit like all these grass flash all them, but he just stood there so cool. And behind. A camera that was easily. Forget. I forget what Brandon was like. That's what I was just about to say like. It was a seventy one. I believe it's. yeah, camera and He's. He took eight shots. BEEN COOLLY Walk. He spent his things in walked off. He was one of the most humble people that I ever met for being put them in one category for Real I mean he? He could play the piano he did. He did orchestrations. wrote symphonies. What was it about his work? That attracted you because what particular area because he did things photography, and I saw Harlem on my mind as a young girl, the photographs captured what I what I knew what I could relate to seeing. Are People I? Just think he had a tremendous I for capturing the pain, the sorrow, the law, the tenderness all of that I, just got from him. It was just so black. Black so yeah, one question I had gone back to your show artist development How in Twenty nineteen with twitter? Who? How do you manage that it being a time where artists can literally I can be three o'clock in the morning. Drunk off my ass. At home in my not me personally. Dry Now. Well let me quit. I. Don't get drunk and go on twitter. Let's say that. But but you know where people can, artists can literally cancel. Say what they want and get cancelled with no filter in as a direct line from them to the rest of the world. How do you manage that in twenty nineteen? And what is your advice to artist in this era? Where once we can get your shaky. Yeah. I review my clients twitter. There's social media before I work with them, and I'll go in a very early and say to them. You need to stay off of social. I had to do that with Nikki Gilbert is. She was doing the show. She was fighting with everybody was a constant in her social media and I said you need to stay off. Social Media thirty days. That's all I'm asking. Stay off and she. She later told me she said. Thank you for that. You saved my life 'cause she was so stressed out. Fighting with people and bickering and arguing so do some people are really good with their social media, but I warn them and I. Tell them you're as you just sat on a you can ruin your career and one tweet so when you write it, look at. It had to do that many many times, haven't you? You write something and you're like what are the? What are the implications or consequences? Higginson that's. Just delete that shit so. Crazy. Speaking at Twenty Eight, twenty, nine, thousand, nine. That's where we are. I was going to ask you about being in metoo error. Current Joe Biden error where you have relationships with men of of all different kind of errors, and for women I was GonNa ask you with vice on that because especially post Joe Biden where we're trying to figure out What's appropriate? Yes, yeah, and you've been through it all. You know intermittent age. You have to gauge and check people. If you are not that person that likes to hug, just extend your hand real cleared. This is not a hug. This is the handshake. Your Body, language tells volumes speaks volumes about you can set. Boundaries with people and you have to do that sometimes, but sometimes people do not respect the ballets, and they'll come in for a hug, and if you don't want it at that point, you just have to speak up and be very honest. You just cannot. If you feel that, you're being offended or people who are doing something that is disturbing to you, hey, the close mouth does not get head got to speak up. They're going to get the point. You have to let them know, too. Because you can't assume that you can. They know and then be. I think it's unfair to assume that they're doing it with bad intentions. You know what I'm saying. If someone comes in for hugging with it, you feel like you just have to say that. Because exactly speak up like today you know. When I arrived at the Studio Fonte gave me a hug that I did not want to relieve. Hug Like being hugged. Well Played I. Only serve people no. Place. rumoring. Let Him. Cut together the Biden videos. It looks creepy you. Touch tiles forehead Chin under the neck and he's older he. was. The vice president so is to also for some women who don't say stuff is like well can affect my life. I told to get off me. He's GonNa be like Hey Cardinal. Don't again. You have to decide your what your your space you and if you don't speak up kind of on you if you are feeling uncomfortable with someone at anytime, man woman, anything like I, went over to a girlfriend's house recently, and her dog kept humping me. I had to be like Yo. Get your dog get your dog and she put the dog in the cage. Michael Vick point. Three iterating fucking hate. DNA on the the Yahtzee. Kiss the OH. Sorry hard. I'm like. Some award show. That was the worst. Last week! Amari Har- week. He greeted beyond saying I. He came in, and he gave kiss on the cheek, hugged her, and it was like no problem, and then he went back for the double tap. He kissed again. And it looked kind of because. Alvarez Jay Z. Right. who was sitting not accurate. It started with Jay, Z he them I first. And then walked around him to beyond say hugged her kissed her within the movies together. No. released. But ever worked together, I. Can a jumping Jack Maybe Some, obviously, but it was a double kiss and tap tough the double tap, but you know what happened she I think she kind of moves so it almost certainly. Kissing her close to her mouth. Black women since power. No I think it does, but he people. The beehive came for him. They will. Yong that's bow, but our man was standing right there. He is not a disrespectful person I know Amari. He's a good guy and. That wasn't nice. Got It from her. Okay she get it from. Before, we wrap yes. What is next for you? You've. She's GonNa Media Coach, Bill, Sherman? Kosei head. Harvard you've traveled to South Africa for? Food isn't Politics Knicks now? Not at all not at all. That's just too confining Yeah? You haven't written books. Your write letters. I should do much of the. Letter. You write a book. Will People feel certain? Well, you know I respect like even the stories. I shared with you there. There's I didn't tell you anything. Super private, right and nothing. That I don't think my clients would be adverse to me. Sharing Right, but I have been approached to write a book. I'm interested in documentaries. My got long game always was producing. So that's why find a being on unsung. I did executive produce. The CO executive produced the episode on Teddy Grass. Thoughts on the Teddy Documentary. Oh hippie. just watch I watched it and I mean be honest, you know. NOTHING WAY! So. What is your take? I watched it I. Think I should give you contexts. I watched it with his widow, Joan, pendergrast, who is a dear friend? I watched it with a Levy Lynch Stein who is the director, her associate tirees and Sister. WHO RUNS HIS COMPANY CHARLIE? Mack we had a private screening retirees. happening he asked absolute. Well he was like a son to teddy and teddy hand picked him Charlie mack the one who approach teddy and said need to do your bio pic, and he introduced reese to Teddy tirees slept in the room in the hospital. Teddy was in the hospital nine months in intensive care before his passing, tyree came from California slept in the room with him. I will forever love him for his devotion, his dedication to teddy. It was more than a movie. They develop a very strong bond. And Teddy gave his blessings to have. Therese portray him in the Bio pic, which is now officially Daniels is. Is Directing but back to the documentary I watched it and I was extremely happy to hear my friends voice to see him when he was able body walking all of that there was footage that I had never previously seen, but at the end of the day I, read a Livia at the end of the documentary. I felt very disrespected for my ex Kenny Gamble. I felt that SHEP. Gordon made comments suggesting that gamble and huff abandoned Teddy, which is the furthest thing from the truth. Teddy did not think he could sing anymore. Teddy didn't WANNA live. Teddy wanted to commit suicide. So, when gambling hop severed their relationship, recording wise teddy, what what the man was on the edge of life didn't think he could sing, so that's what happened, but the way Shep was representing it and the way she was representing also didn't like the amount of time they spent on the has lang murder that was bothering bothersome. Teddy. It left a wide open. SORTA lines in little in France here. That teddy was involved or who who had the most to gain from her death, so were you feelings on on sunny? Hobson's comments obtained thing same thing tits sunny. He's been running around for years making allegations, Endo suggestions that teddy was involved in that so of course I have problems with that as well and so. I let her know and Joan Penta. Grass opened up her husband's. To Olivia. They made three separate trips to Boston. which is where Teddy's widow lives where she opened up the archives, so it was nice to hear Teddy's voice because he pretty much guided the documentary. He narrated it because he she had access to those tapes. She did not mention Joan. She interviewed Joan, but decided to exclude reference to Joan and meanwhile I so I didn't know all the TEDDIES, girlfriends, but I knew the main ones. And I saw a bunch of random chicks documentary that Joe never knew of I didn't know anything about it was crazy. So at the end of the day it had value because the details some of his story, but I felt disrespected because of how she treated. Joan and the inferences or suggestions that teddy was involved has murder and that gambling huff abandoned teddy gamble, help pay for teddy's funeral gamble went to the hospital. I would bump into gamble with our children in Bryn Mawr hospital I never once saw Shep Gordon nor did I ever see Danny Marcus in the hospital however. Danny knew how to find his way to a telephone to ask Joan when Teddy died. Could he represent the estate? The same person very marcus. Danny Marcus was manager, a manager of T- with Gordon. Okay Yeah and when Teddy needed financial help and went to Danny but when he died. They want it to be in control of the estate at problems with those people. And I'm happy to have this opportunity to go on the record and say again parts of the documentary value and we're good, and then the parts just negated a lot of it to me and with Joan I told the director I said you could have Kyron end because they Kyron at the end of the film. That teddy went on to have four gold albums, but not only to tend to go on to have four albums. He got his ged. He went to Drexel University. He fell in love again. Any Marriage Joan. Yes, so college! He went to college. He did not graduate, but he attended Drexel University. She could have Kyron that and he established a foundation to help other paralegal, chicks and quads. He was a quadriplegic. Quadriplegic so I just felt like she said well. We decided to end it at live aid. By the way I went with him that day to live aid that was his first public performance post his accident. He was terrified, but he got through it so I encourage people to still see the doc, but at the same time you know what you're hearing my notes. There's a lot of behind the scenes. We can I ask you ruined. Since. We count brought up. Is there anything? Can you explain what the environment? WAS LIKE In Philadelphia lease with the legend of. June was junior black mafia, trying to get in the music business or Like. I'm again. I'm I only hear. Things in hindsight like thirty years forty years after the fact but. What was the presence of them in Philadelphia at all? Speak on. No, just I mean everywhere. You Got Black Mafia's. You got them. You got the Mafia everywhere you've got organized crime involved in unorganized organized living. But I'm just saying it was so different back especially like okay Joe and Sylvia Robinson. I was pretty sheltered from all of that Amir. Just didn't I didn't so even dillion radio and stuff. Did. They didn't mess with me. I was Kenny Gamble's woman. I didn't feel. That I didn't have to deal with that. I mean neither person. But I mean was it there. I'm I'm saying it was there. It is here. It is everywhere right. Yes, okay. Yeah, but I was a little.

Producer bill brought up on the show. That he was over this music. Our Show intro music that we've been using for years and years, and years and years. And he was like, let me make presentation. Can you use something else? They brought up to different themes then related? One was the the new MLB soccer team I'm dimmer. And I love me some Hans Zimmer. They talk about Hans Zimmer in the boys. Doing the the boys do the movie called the Donald Seven. The Guy who they're explain it Hans Zimmer. Catch that. So anyway did like it was funny about it is if you missed the show that day was a podcast. And so many people messaging don't change. The theme keep the show theme the same. and Suzanne at the time said I have an idea for a song. So at this point bills teams are out. We didn't even try. Yeah Yeah. It's not as good as this. Yeah it's not as because that's so but so that you have potentially other ideas we're open to discuss anything right? So don't get me wrong. I like this I like I don't love it but I like this bed music bed. I like the snoop Dogg intro soup but. Doug Andrew Yeah. I, really like I. Love Uncle Snoop here's the thing though I feel like we can always change things up every now and then so what I did was with the help of of some other people in the building a created in intro with a music bed that goes right under it. So nervous I'm so nervous to play for you guys because I do like this new show it's just You've taken it a step further than just the music bed. Yes. You've eliminated Snoop Dogg. is also something bill wanted to do for quite some time he wanted to retire that snoop. Dogg. was irrelevant but it's like he's not he's he's on the corona commercials. Snoop. Dogg Joke my God good point. Dog is tremendous but okay, go ahead. So this is this is why I'm so excited to hear what you have really nervous. So you're presenting a new open and Ben Okay together. All right here you go running. uploading the most listened to radio show on the planet I just. What's up? Billy. Taylor Swift's with Post Malone And you're waking up with John Jay and rich culture, the music this is John. Jay, and Richon. Week you win some. Cool. I mean we're GONNA have to use that because that's that's killer but he I think. I just flipped the switch. Flip. What happens when this song goes out because it's kind of like popular, right? Yeah. I think the beat will still be pretty dope but I think within a couple of years I don't know maybe. Two three years maybe five years we can always change it up. You know what? I mean make make it new make it fresh I don't think there's nothing wrong with that. So let me ask you this. Couldn't we keep like what we have? Because no, no no. No. Hold on home because this is so fantastic. Why can't this play more times throughout the show like you have the show it's kind of like when you see the give me a famous show almost going to go to France but give me another show. The office like you have the show intro everyone knows the theme song office. So it's like the thing that I, I played this. This is like let's call this the judge rich theme. That's when the show starts at five. Am That's the show Kinda right now. Call to action and then or say with Seinfeld Seinfeld theme, the French theme, and then we do other things throughout the show. There's different music that plays underneath it that thing that you just made couldn't that play like almost five or six times throughout the share because that's because that's so incredible. Because it. But it's like the opening Snoop Dogg say everything that he says and then everybody else you put there's just incredible and then as it evolves celebrities evolve like the duleep thing she's going to be around forever. But whoever else in their path Malone? Yeah. Whoever else they fade or whatever it's just that's just a really cool thing out that was very bad ass. That's really cool. You your Europe that that's incredible. Thank for forever to try to find different clips and artists and sounds. So it took some work and I was ready for you guys to like it. Illegally. I was there to be totally it'll retentive I think that if there was are if it was a real show open I, think people would start to not listen what we have to say and just Kinda go listen to the drake. Song we'll see that's why. Is that why asked when the song goes out? It's like right now it's like. That song is so recognizable, and so it's like you sing the song in your head. You're like I'M NOT LISTEN TO SYRIA NAM listen to it's eroding not watch. Would grab your attention it. It does. But then are you listening to what we're saying listen for your favorite part of the song I don't know I. Don't know like this song I hear. That from you might the thing about this. Again. Just sort of like a background and it's just like. This is sometimes people go oh my God I heard your song on a commercial for this. I heard your song at a suns game. I heard your song or whatever. That's what I hear. A lot of feedback I get this found this this actual team vissel right here. So the movie kill, Bill.

We've talked to AJ here. So the way normally works we've talked to Jay. He's Intel's high met this person when our About the date and then we're GONNA find out. Why we're going to troubleshoot find out why there is no second date they were going to call the person who find out why they don't like him anymore. Aj Welcome to John Gene Rich second date update what your story. Guy. So there's this girl that I work with and I had a massive crush on since like. Well since we started working there and I saw her, she's she's beautiful. She's funny. She's interesting and and you know we've been working together since October of last year. So almost a year. and. Our company where like the two, the two youngest people there. So we kinda struck up a work friendship and. Being honest I've always wanted to ask her out but like I don't want to make where we work together and I guess honestly I've also little frayed she'll say no so. Yeah. Then we we all started working out at home back in March like like everybody and my ability to even just interact with her was affected and You know we do online like Webex meetings for a while and that was it. That's the only time I get to see her there's always other people in the so I couldn't. Talk One on one was been weird like texture or that kind of stuff. So. Finally I started with their online and then I built up the courage just just ask her dinner. And She said Yeah it was it was a little awkward. If I'm being honest. You know we met at the restaurant and each other in in quite a while. So I wasn't sure like should I hug her handshake hug seen too much. So we. and. you know whatever? Then, we we we had a nice dinner or at least I thought so and I want to ask her out again. But I. Just I don't know if she would say. Yes. Why? It's just been different since we went out like I've been trying to chat with their online at work. She doesn't respond the way she used to You know what I'm saying like she's just not. Not Be readily like she used to as friendly as she used to be it's just all business now. So, you notice the vibe change after the first year. Yeah. And like I text her once but she didn't respond to it I. Felt like I was pushing it. So I've only I've tried to talk to her on the online like online chat. That's. There moment like in the date where you like notice that it wasn't going good or something that maybe she made face like she didn't like that. No No. Like I I take the check and we both said it was really great to see you in person and that was it. She said she had works, but she didn't say that she wanted to go out again or anything like that. It was just very. Nice. But it wasn't I didn't get any Tony Box. Does that does that make sense? These are the tough ones for us because you're not it's like it's not like I'm assuming there was no intimacy there was kissing there was an you spend the night. There was no, there's no sexual activity right yet nothing. We got nothing like that to go on right No, there was no kissing their no nothing sexual happened I i. don't know maybe it's a simple as she's just not interested in me like that. But I don't think I did anything to screw the data I I. Don't I guess I'm just I'm in my head about this I. Hope when you guys were in the office, are you at a job where you have to like get dressed up and wear a suit every day? I mean, yeah we we work we work in the consulting business. So I I I don't have to wear a suit everyday I wear at time face and she always dresses professional ever seen you in regular everyday clothes. No but I I also like a nice button down. It's a nice jeans. So it wasn't like I was looking weird and in the in the web meetings, nobody's really dressed up. So we've seen each other in more casual tired because I had a friend one time who decided to go out with a guy from work and she was only used to seeing him in like suit and she's like he showed up and his outfit was so weird and off and she's like I don't WanNa say it but it almost changed his personality changed. About. Remember. It actually was, but it was very different and she's like it's almost like I learned more about him by what he chose to wear. I back. That could easily be set like that because he's not given he's he doesn't know. When the guy doesn't know it's either she got back with her boyfriend or something he's totally clueless like that and it's all in her head because he's like I'm turned off by what he did and you know. So we have to call her and we'll find out from her. So what's her name is Robyn? We'll call Robin we're gonNA find out what went wrong. Second date update continues next in rich. We're the middle second date update. You Got Augean Robin they worked together and since October, and he was like crush on her likes her. So he wants to ask her out but then the democats not start working from home and they start doing these zoom meetings, Webex things and everybody can never really get alone time with her Bali. He gets up enough nerve astronaut. She says, yes, they go to dinner to have a good time at dinner right? Good tempting. On, and She said that's a nice time that was a fun time. Yeah. That was great and that's it. That's the end of the date, and since then it's been awkward and he doesn't know what went wrong. He can't figure it out. Kyle came up with a good thing maybe after working together and they were because they dress up at work then maybe maybe she wasn't into his casual look. But we got nothing to really go on. He doesn't know he says everything went great. So we're going to call Robin and find out what went wrong with Robin. Rocky Robin. GARAPPOLO Coworkers. All, it should be like. That's a rule. Hello Hello we're looking for Robin. Who's hi good morning this is the radio station. The John Jay enrich show. Really. Hurt. That's Actually, envy is oh cool. Can we put air for a second talk to you? Yeah Yeah I've never been on before. I didn't expect you guys to call. They don't listen live as often as I should but exciting. Thank you. Well. So listen we're calling you about. Your work, your job and the people you work with are you enjoying your work? And what? What I do Good. SPAT. So one of your coworkers reached out to us about something. So that's what we're calling you is that okay to talk to you about that Oh. Okay I was just about. Stealing you've been stealing from. The change drawer from the petty cash. Right. Now. Okay, so you think you know it's about it's about it's about. Aj. Yeah that makes sense. Okay. So we just give you his point of view and what he told us he says that you know he's been kinda crush on for a while. You know the pandemic hits. Either way. Eventually, he asked you, he gets enough nerve to ask you out you guys go out he. Thinks he had a great time he thinks you had a great time. He thinks that they went great. Now he thinks things are awkward when he doesn't know why he wants to see you again. So if you wouldn't mind telling US word if things go wrong because you're clearly not into him, right so what went wrong? Where are you now? Well I really honest I wasn't one hundred percent sure that it is even eight at first. I thought he was just being friendly and wanted to catch up as friends and coworkers but. Then I was thinking like cases like I don't really know for sure he asked me where I wanted to heat and I really said I. Don't I don't care you pick but just like make sure it's Chelsea and he came back and said chilies and I was like Okay. Well, then this isn't a date I don't think Like I'll go along with it and see what happens. Everything seemed fine and then after we ate. Yes, I. wanted to her and I said no because I've been trying stuff more healthy than and you know that. So then the server came by and asked if he wanted to dirt, he wonders a molten chocolate cake and I'm not sure if you've seen the same before but it's Mathis and he perceives the entire thing in front of me and even offered a share even at all. Even if he did I, probably would've said, no. But Still Kinda rude especially when I'm trying to eat healthy like that entire thing in front of me, it makes it a lot more difficult so. I don't know I just I. Just felt like it really wasn't like they kind of five. So. That's it. That's the only reason. He didn't share his desert with you and he took the chilly. It wasn't just that it was just like it just didn't really feel like a Damiano felt like just just a lunch. You know felt like catching up it didn't really feel like anything romantic. Okay. All right. So. He's actually this ha here that. I I, hear hey hey robin. How are you? Good. So I I, just I just want to clear this up like I get it. That was that was that was that was definitely a date I don't know why that was unclear but like I, you know I fully intended to. For that to be a tape. Okay I mean it's just a little misunderstanding not like. Like I didn't think it was a possibility. I was a little bit lost. Oh. His I mean Chili. Didn't really necessarily the healthiest. So I was like you know. Have the guiltless grill. Delicious like there's healthy options. Yes, there is. I found thing for sure. But I mean. I the first thing that I think. Well I I. Guess I wanted to take your choice because that was that was the that's where we have lunch of the first time. You know like remember like with Matthew Taylor in US I I I just thought it'd be You know Kinda cute to to go back to the first the first place we ever had a meal together. Yeah I. Guess You I mean. I make sense now that. Perspective, kind of cute to remember it is it just sounds like robbing. At all, there's not there's not like they don't sound charming together like let's give this another go. It seems like she's just a little a little confusing annoyed. Well. I mean, you say it's a date, but then you take me to Chili's on her I eight molten and chocolate cake in front of me when you know I'm trying to eat healthy though. But like in my defense, you know first off Chile's have seven the items on their menu like they're talking about the. Grill. Like. To make sure because I know you you cared about that and and also like I love that it's the best and I asked you if you want dessert you said no and and like I'm sorry I didn't realize that me enjoying dessert was going to bother you. But I'm sorry for that. That's my bad and and maybe I should have known better. Now, in Japan I don't think he did it intentionally. Do, you want to see him again, right? I would I would give it another try. Have the baby back ribs there. And? It was menu. Maybe you know about the Rabbits. Really. Good there guacamole by so she's willing to give it a shot there. J. So This time I'll take you I'll make sure we could maybe get listened some great restaurants you like be happy to take you to aches. A little classier of an establishment and I promise you I won't. I won't eat a whole cake in front of you this time. Now that I know okay. All right. Thank you. Guys were going on there with us. That's second update China rich. Strategy Rich grants in the studio. This is on. A. Hum. Wouldn't. and We grant so. Share with us to. Story. Of getting high. I know that. The one you know the one I'm talking. Yeah. So the other night it was probably about. Five or six feeling like the evening time. I decided I was GonNa take a pretty substantial edible I've been off of the medical marijuana for a few months. Now just got it back and I said let's get back. Let's get back on this train she hasn't had eighty. Mapping months. No. Like it's been nuts about two months I had I had leftover I just kind of got through and then I just was like I need to get some I wanna make sure that I still need the medicine so I let it out of my system and I made sure you know before I made a doctor's appointment to you know need it instead of just taking it because I want to take it because it's so fun. Okay. So. I had a whole night planned of taking this big edible dose I. One back back at it. I was GONNA get dinner going to you know peruse the Internet hours and hours of Internet, you know that's that's what I love to do just put on headphones and just these really graphic terrible rabbit holes like surf the Internet that's a fun for you. Absolutely. Yes okay and your brain just goes so many places. So I take this big edible and I'm just kind of waiting. We save big edible. Is it like the way I look gets every once while those those giant Hershey's kisses? No this is a great question. No, these are little dummies. Okay. and I ate I. Think there were ten of them. So that was about three hundred milligrams like which is God. Yeah. It's a big boy dose and our right as I start to feel my body tangle unlike man I gotta get over the computer got to get my Youtube Q. Ready for how many did you take all ten ten? Yeah. I like two party. So. Get. I'm I'm I'm starting to feel that good feeling. Warm. Tinguely my body feels good. I'm just like let's you know I'm curious. Let's explore the Internet. Log. Onto my computer and I get a no Internet connection My internet wind down for I. What I'm assuming was I don't know. Eight hours H, but it happened basically or right it happened right when I decided to take the edibles. So now I am peaking I'm at the highpoint and I'm like, oh my gosh, I don't have Internet, which means I don't have netflix because Apple TV, all this I don't have cable I have nothing to watch. I'm back in time I'm in the olden days trying to figure out what I'm GonNa, do it myself on on on this wonderful edible So I'm like, okay I unplug everything unlike my computer unplugged the Modem and then I'm like I'm going to go outside and I'm just going to get some fresh air because I haven't done that in months I feel like I've just been hanging out in the firemen. So the edibles blowing my mind and it's it's dark it's darker little earlier and I go down this Weird Creek Path and there's no lights like no lights and I don't have my phone I don't have anything with me I just choose to go down said Pathans. duckpin. It's like I've seen a lot of scary movies and a lot of them start this way. So I'm like I'd like to find myself in that position some day where I. Don't just decide to go scroll on your phone. No no because I don't I also live in the boondocks. So I don't get very good cellular data. Relied on why walking down the creek path no phone it's dark. What happens I start to think? I, hear things behind me and I'm in the middle of the path and this is probably two mile path. So there's a mile this way a mile this way, and it's just dark. Path anymore. Region. And I swear there was there was somebody following me? And to the point where I I started to. kind of brisk walk a little bit loosening. Talking and I get I. Just decided I'm going to go all the way around all the way around the neighborhood and just kind of like you know see if I can see who's following me and the whole time I'm like looking back I'm hearing more and more, and I get to the end of the path and turn and I realized there's nobody on the path. There's nobody behind me I just fell into this paranoid. So I retreat to my favorite gas station I go in and get like a soda and they're like, it's fine. You're good. They know. We're following me. Walked him in there and I did that thing where I shut the door, the gas station like closed behind me which I don't think a lot of people do. This is a really cool guy. T Pu who works at this gas station and he always knows he's always like you having a good night and that's code for you look really really high, right? It turns out I got my Mexican cookies and then I walked home and guess what when I got home plugged. In Internet works everything was great. I had the best night ever goes it all works out. So you were follows, we'll save the day who is the guy shut. Getting. What's up man. See that. Running in closing the door behind you know. And you guys. All right. stunned enrich. John Rich. So I got my wife for anniversary. In Apple Watch. K.. She calls it a leash. Right. Because one of the main reside got apple watches because also got her Peleton because Peleton people said that you the new Apple Watch and the new Peleton worked well together there. So that's why I got it and then I thought well an added benefit is. Wife is terrible at answering the phone and terrible returning text messages and I thought if she has the watch on her, it'll because you're had a conversation with someone that has an apple, watch chip and if you're talking to them, they'll do stop their watch tax right it's like it's Kinda rude and disrespectful. But at the same time, if you're the person that's on the other end is calling right on you get hold of that person. So I thought I'll always be able to get a hold of her now she's the saw the I got to watch I'm like. Hey. And I call her. Mike. You didn't pick up at all I didn't have to watch on a leash on. vk. Now we're new leash today. But that I became obsessed with this, this is what the problem is for me. Now, if I call her does pick up like, hey. Are you talking about you're watching? She's like, yeah, I'm going. To wait so the whole. How far away is your arm from your face? Like are you talking like this? Hello, how are you? Know I'm just doing whatever I'm normally doing and it sounds better than the phone. Does that's weird. But because the phone she has the full like stuck in your neck. So you hear this. Apple, watches I. Hi, how are you? I can hear him perfectly right. So You have one I have one, but I'm not wearing no right now but. Maybe use that the walkie talkie. Feature on it. to leash. Usually wear like mainly on the weekends like having to take it off and put it on every night to charge you just kind of like annoyed. The like terminally stomach bracelet that don't take them off there on. Time. So the thing with this, this thing is with the watch is that she calls it a leash. So now my kids go back to school pretty soon and I was check with you guys the other day about Disneyland being hoping. Used rich digital, his that open no just went to their. And I'd like the front part like the molly part they have limited opening, but the actual parks are still closed. Okay good. That's good for me. Let me tell you what. My my wife and my son Jake in my son Dutch we're going to go to Los Angeles to see my sister. It's fall break to have time off right and she was like Kemp has a basketball tournament in Las Vegas coming up. So, camp was gonNA stay home and train while they go to Los Angeles and then kept on I. WE'RE GONNA go to Las Vegas for the tournament. So Blake's like well, we'll just go see your sister and in wall were there will go to Disneyland. Mike goes land like without us. She's like, yeah, I was just I had this like. Like this whole like how dare you star Wars now you? Thank you, Mike. Star. Wars without. I'm like I've waited my whole life for Star Wars land like my whole life when I was a child star wars opened up all ever wanted in my life was to be a part of the Star Wars Star Wars Galaxy. That's all I ever wanted and now. No Hammett and now the Star Wars land is open. You can make your own lightsaber you can make a Yoda you can use our to debate robots. It's literally what I've waited for my entire life and you're going to go take two of my children. How how do you? How can you and she looked at me like she crossed the line like she knew I was like like that's like if I go to divorce court and I, tell that to a judge. Gal It's over. All the property. The. Such peace in my heart knowing that it's not open. It doesn't work like that. So that can happen. That can't happen. I could not believe that that was like it was so nonchalant. Disneyland. Without. According to the website. It doesn't even have. They say we'll let you know when things change, but it is not open for the foreseeable future but disneyworld is. GonNa Florida don't do that. I don't think they do right. I figured they open everything at the same time. I. Thought both Florida Disneyworld all of thought. But I don't know doesn't say Johnny Disneyland my shirt. So. Anyway that's the kind of thing. So now I'm like Oh my sister whatever that's boring. Born time go to knotsberry farm I. DON'T CARE Good Universal world wherever that is but yeah, don't go but don't go to Disneyland. Don't go to the Star Wars Land. That's so such portrayal like it's so it's like Knott's Berry farm whatever it's called. Has, a force a fourth son so You want, and then he was he was like really mom. And then I think she was like I'm so sorry. Wait by the way Disneyworld does have star wars, land? Okay. All right. It's John Dean. Richmond with you. Change. John Rich deleting the studio Stafford daily downloads which gives us information. It's very necessary especially in her world Delaney's downloads. Today's what a dating. APP. Yeah. It's a new dating APP which actually I thought it was pretty cool because I know a lot of people are kind of over like the superficial swipe culture kind of like tinder bumble or hinge where. It's Kinda like. You initially based off what you look like, and it's funny because I was reading an article yesterday that people will spend an average of three seconds on a profile before they choose to swipe right or left or not which is crazy. So if you're if you're over something like that, maybe this new dating APP could be something for you. It's called some more. So users receive reminded profiles each each day chosen specifically for them by an algorithm. It factors in your values, passions, preferences, and behaviors All the photos of your pro potential matches are blurred out. So the more you engage in chat with someone on the APP, the more the picture on blurs. Oh, that's Again. Like I think physical attraction is yes, it is. superficial. But also, it's very important because that's the thing that. Nature draws you to someone. Like what if you really liked someone's personality and then I feel like and. Then what do you do second uncomfortable situation where you're like, Hey, you're. Can look past that when you really get to know the person. That day diop but I would want to be on that. No. Further to be a connection before knowing what you look like and even if you're not like oh I wouldn't. I. Don't think I would have like price swiped on them but now really getting to know you and your Q. Like you're not the hottest guy in the world. Yeah. Give it a chance and it could be something. Yeah. If they're like not the hottest guy the role. But if you're like just straight up, not attract like if it's just you're not attracted to whatever. They need more gives you. So awkward but at least you try like connection. Wise. It's more like the like the fun little thing that you eat for dessert or Comey's more. More about Oh R. E.. Okay. Execute named. Get on that you're looking you you read about them I and then you go and you see pictures. It reminds me of an idea brought up on the air longtime ago. But not I didn't I didn't say I have this idea but I felt it. This is a better version of that idea where I think there should be a dating app called Mask and you. Go on there and you you have pictures of yourself with masks on and then decide whether you want to deck because that's everyone was a mass now and I can't tell you how many people I've seen where you look at them and like you see beautiful is my merely this permanent beautiful is made female and then let me see your face and then you see the facial. ooh. Well Yeah it's funny. You say that because I was at dinner and the waiter who was taking care of us, it's like. He was Q. Within the con- but then he took it off and he had this crazy beard and I was like, Oh, I did not expect you to look like. College. Have Shave his beard. He was real face looks like when you get married to him another layer what happened to you? You Got Catfish Oh my gosh. I think she got catfish so she's talking to this guy. On this dating. APP and she's so funny. She's she's one of those people that it's like. I'm I'm I'm not single anymore like he's the love of my life. Oh, yeah. Yes she is romantic love with him. So she'd been talking him for a couple of weeks and over the weekend after we went out to dinner, he invited us over his place and his friends were there but he was on his way back like I think he went to the store to grab alcohol but he's like my friends are there just go in like make yourself at home so we get there and we're inside and he ends up walking in and I had already seen this guy before because she showed me and he he he looked smoking hot on the dating, APP. I turn around and he walked to the door and he introduces himself and I'm like. You're done. And he was like, yeah like. Of like nice to meet you too. You don't look like anything you like. Like your bickers at all how so what what was so different This is gonNA, Sound. I. Don't WanNa sound mean but he little, he looked a little more. Distorted in in person like his face salt. Moore's happened I. Drug already. Drunk. Distorted face real life looks like not as. As he did online the key he looked like Rico Suave online but and you saw him in person and I was like. Hugest, Don Rico swampy unfiltered version exactly and I and I went back and maybe he does smooth out his face a bit but I was like. So you like walk away and I go down my friend go he's catfish catfish. And I know shut up. Shut up but then he was really nice but I was just like she like him. That was it. I mean I don't know. She wasn't like CR- as crazy about him as she was because I don't know I think. When you put yourself out there on social media and you are in person you you're not what you look like. It just seems like you're I don't know it's. Hard you don't WanNa make your dating profile pictures that filtered or whatever. Because you're setting a really high expectation that you aren't exactly and I think she kinda just felt a little like Weird Asher that. Pat. His house steakhouse castle figured because you'd leave like just go on. That whole deal? Yeah. Sick Pat go inside and then I'll be there later like there was a little set up that way. So you're in love with the house. So I know you're going to be disappointed in me personally when you see. It sounds that's what happened. I don't know. Now that you say that that's weird because the. Question. Easy because I know the game. So. She's not talking to him anymore. Well, actually. I. Look at his house. Still is I think she just wasn't as excited as as she was about it because I think she felt a little fool with him. No, she didn't Hook up with rope a night. Yes I did. Very. Faces Blurry. Tricky. Moore's S'mores John. Ridge. Rates stretching rich new nick in the studio because Nick is going through a version of something. All of us go through I think and that's where you get packages that come all the time from Amazon would have a right and I guess on the Amazon Account and my house almost all of them say John J van s all and I never order anything. Amazon. So It's funny when it comes to my house, my wife will be like, did you order something that Amazon? No. And then she opened up, she'll oh and was up all I order this it's it's a tablecloth or something like why would I didn't order that don't. But Nick is an interesting situation. I think about the most recent packages that you guys got what happened. Yeah. So it's I don't know this has been so so weird because again. I've been home for six months and when you're when you're literally at home and you're not going anywhere, you're not doing anything else like that's what you do you just you just shop. Whatever I'm not buying beard this week I guess this all just do. We got on Friday. and. It was addressed to me. I was like, what did I order now because it's like? Every time. There's something coming and we don't like it. It's it's a guessing game. You know and I open it up and it was a special edition Phoenix Suns. Disney themed t shirts. Wait. A minute like devin booker with mouse years. It's like it looks like it's from the nineties, but it's it's Maki Mouse goofy and Donald Duck all in Phoenix Suns Jersey's pretty dope and then there's a long sleeve Mickey Mouse. Phoenix shirt. So apparently like when they announced that the sons were going to be in the bubble, they produce the shirts and immediately I was like that's something I need you. Ask. Them without even thinking about it and then forgot, and we had to go back and look and see who like who was. Remember
