Chicago-area worker fighting for minimum wage raise for all
"Negotiations on the latest code nineteen relief bill are underway in congress but a key democratic priority is in question president. Joe biden had initially pushed for proposal in the bill that would raise the federal minimum wage to fifteen dollars by the year. Twenty twenty-five no matter what happens at the federal level chicago goes to fifteen dollars this summer while illinois is on a path to fifteen dollars by the year twenty twenty-five earlier this week. Parachutes had a conversation with rob car president of the illinois retail merchants association and adriana alvarez mcdonald's employees and a leader in the chicago chapter of for fifteen. He began by asking alvarez. What's important to her to continue pushing at the national level. Despite illinois's hike being done deal you know. I do believe that this is Everyone's fight I'm not the only one struggling here in illinois you know There's a bunch of people out there struggling So i believe that the federal the federal minimum wage should go up to livable wage of fifteen dollars. An hour rob car. You represent businesses illinois. What are you hearing from your members about the most recent hike in illinois and in chicago again expected to go to fifteen dollars this summer struggling great word for it. There's a lot of employers for struggling as well which is why we historic on them. State as a result of the pandemic. It's going to impose. I think for us for for washington. Elways cautionary tale in that. You don't want to do this and you want to think twice about doing all certain epic because it makes components I what about that. The nonpartisan congressional budget office put out a study this month saying that raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour. It would live nearly a million people out of poverty but it could also lead to the loss of one point four million jobs. Could it actually hurt workers instead of help in my opinion i don't think so The more money. I have in my pocket. I'll be able to go to these small mom and pop shops that i have by my house. I don't have to make the trip to you know those big corporations that Have the deals So i'm not going to be saving any kind of money. I'm going to be spending it right back into the economy rob car if you look at the minimum wage adjusted for inflation over. The last several decades really hasn't gone up at all in fact it's gone down. Should the minimum wage at least keep up with inflation. Well i think the calculation depends on where you start. Become finished from sixty eight has been chosen by the advocates rather randomly choose from other years so different story. But no you don't wanna have wage on automatic increments. Sales are not automatic increase for example. When i when you talk about the retail sector. I represent It's been horrible policy. The state of illinois to continuous minimum wage increases in the midst of this pandemic when she would have something automatic on like that so that would be a terrible approach. What about that Again Rob is saying there shouldn't be automatic raises but if you look at the minimum wage adjusted for inflation It really hasn't moved at all. And then we're talking about fifty years since. Yeah it's it's been you know. The federal minimum wage has been stuck since two thousand nine. And i mean everything else has gone up We have to work two three jobs just to you know by essential stuff and i honestly don't think that that's that's right And seventy five is not enough

Rigoberta compost start with you please. Let's sketch out how the day labor market Typically works kind of work. People find how they find that working normal times it has been affected during the pandemic according to lay out the challenges that the to another they wake up every day with hopes of trying to find work and of whether that means they able to pick something up It really comes down to what happens. one there at the corner hiring site Sometimes they're lucky. Things are now but the reality is is that the pandemic has really made that's attrition. Law were difficult. I mean we're talking about being able to around being able to pay for food your bells your phone on and honestly the challenge. There is that they're having to make financial decisions. That are really hard. And when you add add taking care of yourself with cohen in nixon really challenging. Because you get sick. That's a day we from work And that's money that you need to date right. Now nick theodore what aspects of the lives of day laborers make them especially vulnerable during the pandemic both the financial problems but also infection. Rigo saying i think the issue of having to work often in close contact with other workers on a day-to-day basis. Not always knowing who your coworkers might be. There's a lot of exposure issues. That i think make things very difficult and we're talking about low. Wage work insecure work overall. And so the pressure to return to the day labor hiring site that try to find work day after day the despite hazards that might exist without pressure is very real. Labor's rigoberto your organization. Latino union of chicago offers support day laborers eating them through this difficult time At the moment and we are going out there trying to offer. Td were handing out cash assistance. That we've been able to obtain Sharing information on food pantries offer them a a support group where they can bent and kind of process. How they're feeling at the moment at the reality is is that a lot of the needs will beyond just being able to solve what's happening now out of. It's also just based on a lot of intentional working on policy. Change systemic change and you know just one basic question that comes to mind rigoberto. Are they finding work in these times Honestly it's on and off mostly off of the reality is that it has affected the market and even though it's affected the market. They're waking up every day of really early With hopes that those still find something. A the reality is is that Even want sometimes people come looking for them There are people that are taking advantage of the fact that they are Immigrant workers looking for work at a cornerside. And so they're not paying much at all and have needs to nick. The last year saw an economic downturn in most areas though of course we know some sectors some industries did remain robust. What effect has the economy. This last year had on the labor market for these workers. It prevents attacked. I think both in terms of the slowdown a related to the pandemic of the amount of construction and other work that day laborers are doing. But then there's the bigger question about workers who are being displaced from other industries so is restaurants and bars shutdown as other sectors of the economy. Shutdown do the krona virus pandemic workers were being expelled from those industries. And for many of them they turned up on the street corner looking for day labor work for those day laborers. This is almost employment of last resort. And so they are putting additional pressure on day labor markets which puts pressure on wages in java bail ability so during every downturn whether it's the pandemic or the great recession a decade ago. Every time we see a downturn in the economy the number of people looking for day labor work increases dramatically and grits hardships across this economy

What Would Happen If Chabot Dam in the East Bay Hills Broke Open?
"What would happen if chicago damn cracked open an empty the lake behind it onto neighborhoods in san leandro and east oakland. It's an alarming thought. We asked cake. Ud's dan bricky. Who's reported on safety issues at california's oroville dam to find the answer. Holly and vickers kings question is a really good one because it reminds us that all dams pose risks of some kind given the nature of the job they perform holding back huge volumes of water they can turn from placid lake into deadly torrent. If unleashed all at once. They deserve very close attention. When that attention lapses catastrophes can do happen in late may eighteen eighty nine flood. Water overflowed badly maintained private dam in western pennsylvania. Triggering its collapse. A wall of water race down the valley below a century later. Historian david mccullough said. The johnstown flood was so vividly alive in the local consciousness. I grew up in western pennsylvania. I'd heard about the johnstown flood my whole life as children. We used to shout run for the hills. The damas busted little knowing what real terror is in those words. The flood wiped entire towns off the map and killed twenty. Two hundred people in california owns its own special chapter in the history of dam disasters with a tragedy that unfolded more than ninety years ago in a remote canyon fifty miles north of downtown los angeles from the day. The saint francis dam opened in one thousand nine hundred twenty six. It leaked the folks in the farm. Towns downstream used to joke. They'd see you later if the damn don't break on march twelfth nine hundred twenty eight. The saint francis damn disintegrated just hours after it was pronounced sound by los angeles water. Chief william mulholland who had designed and built the two year old structure when the massive concrete dam broke apart water raised more than fifty miles to the pacific ocean killing about four hundred fifty people along the way but those events one hundred thirty years ago in johnstown ninety some years ago in los angeles county sound like ancient history much more recently california. Got a lesson in how dangerous and costly failure of even part of a major dam can be failure ambiance spillway structure results in an uncontrolled. Lisa flood waters from link oroville and eating evacuation from the low twenty. Seventeen collapse the spillway at oroville dam in the northern sierra foothills one hundred thirty miles northeast of san francisco touched off a series of events that lead local officials to order one hundred eighty eight thousand people to flee their homes. This is not a drill. Repeat this is not a drill. Spill ways are crucial to preventing overtopping. That's what happens. When a reservoir rises over the top of the dam and simply spills over a spillway is like an emergency valve. Damn managers can open to safely release water from a reservoir bills over the top but back in february twenty seventeen oroville dam spillway began to disintegrate just as a series of winter storms dumped huge amounts of rain across northern california without a fully functioning. Spillway lake oroville rose rapidly water poured over a hillside that was supposed to serve as an emergency spillway. That emergency spillway began to fail to leading to the mass evacuation. In the aftermath investigators found the emergency spillway was ill conceived and the main spillway was badly designed poorly built and inadequately maintained. So how is should bowe damn different from all those bad dams and what does east bay mud have to say about. Chaba cracking open and unleashing catastrophe on the east bay. Simple answer to that question is that the dam would never crack open. That's jimmy yolly east bay mud director of engineering and chief damn safety officer he oversees the district twenty six times including chabad. Damn the reality is that the dams are designed such that. They don't just crack open. You will see signs of a failure if one is to occur and The dan's designs with monitoring equipment to make sure that you can see that happening if it was a east bay mud confidence that a dam built within a quarter mile of a dangerous fault will stand up to violent shaking. Let's take a look at how the dam was first built. Nearly one hundred fifty years ago and how it's been maintained since
"We're going to start in the early nineties back before this shift. When the old rules about government borrowing still applied. Bill clinton had just been elected president. He appointed an economist named laura tyson to be one of his top advisors and she looked at the economy and she saw this glaring problem year after year. Both government deficits and interest rates. Were going up and then he said omega if we don't get a hold of this federal deficit than that trend will continue. Those rates will continue upward. That was a very significant concern. Higher interest rates were concerned for a couple of reasons for one thing. Obviously they meant that the government had to pay more to borrow money but also when interest rates for the government went up. Interest rates also went up for everybody else. And that's it up this whole cascade of problems so we're people won't buy as many houses. There won't be as many houses constructed in their wealth as much capital equipment invested in and investments in important part of the Economic growth in your all sorts of every interest sensitive part of the economy the way the government runs a deficit. The way it borrows money is by selling bonds treasury bonds. The government says to really anybody. Okay lend us whatever one hundred dollars and in say ten years we will pay you back with interest will pay you back one hundred twenty dollars. The bond is basically the government's i. Iou you that it will pay back that loan with interest and during the clinton administration because of that link between deficits and interest rates. Everybody in the white house talked about treasury bonds about the bond market time. James carville was a political advisor to president. Clinton was just an obsession. In the early days of clinton's everybody say what's the bond market could house bot mocking react to hell multiple. i don't know it just became this omnipresent. The heart of every conversation. James carville was not an economics guy but as he spent time at the white house he realized that sort of bizarrely all these people who worked there making policy the people who had what seemed like the most powerful jobs in the world. We're in fact terrified of the bond market so when a reporter from the wall street journal called up carville to talk about the bond market. He came up with this line that became sort of famous or at least bond market famous kid. I wanted to grow up with four hundred hitter. The pope and the president. But i just want to be the bond. Market's gonna scare the hell out of everybody pleat. What did he say. A what a hundred hitter like in baseball pope the president baseball. I cannot tell you how many times he said that's me. Every meeting every meeting a lot of my memories are about carville sort of making jokes about you. Know you issues as a bond trader bond traders. These are the people who work in finance all around the world who manage a bunch of money. Generally other people's money pension funds or college endowments that kind of thing and every day they decide what bonds to buy and what bonds to sell what companies and countries to lend to and what companies and countries to not lend to to stop lending to and like with any lender bond traders worry about lending more money to a borrower who is already borrowing a lot because all that borrowing makes it more risky and so to compensate for that risk bond traders demand a higher interest rate. They stop lending until rates. Go up and this bond traders demanding higher interest rates when the government is borrowing more money. This is the scenario that everyone was so worried about people. Were so afraid of this that there was even a special term for the bond traders. Who do this bond vigilantes. Bill clinton has convinced. The bond vigilantes are scary and in fact he decides the us needs to bring the deficit down. He decides to build a whole economic plan around getting rid of the deficit. One of the economists he brought in to make that happen was jason and a central argument. That we made was if you do this. It will lower interest rates and interest rates are lower will have more investment and more economic growth and sort of amazingly. All of this happened. They did raise taxes and cut spending and get the deficit down. In fact by the end of the clinton administration the deficit felt all the way to zero. And what came next was sort of a golden moment for the economy in silicon valley. There was the dot com boom but really the whole economy was doing great businesses of all kinds. Were doing well. Ordinary workers were getting breezes lower deficits lead to lower interest rates which led to more investment. And that was good for basically everybody. The system was working. The next big moment in the story comes right after the financial crisis of two thousand eight and this is the moment when everything is about to change when this big shift in the way the world works is about to happen but nobody quite nosy yet. Brock obama has just been elected. President obama brings in clinton's guy. Jason furman as one of his economic advisors and ferment. Goes into this meeting to discuss. How big of a stimulus. Bill obama should push for as he takes office. We met with the president-elect december sixteenth two thousand eight and we're all crowded together in a conference room. I think it was in a law firm in chicago and he wanted it to be big. He wanted to be bold but there was this worry. The stimulus was going to be funded with deficit. Spending government was going to borrow the money. And some of obama's own economic advisers worried that borrowing and spending too much money might actually harm the economy for that classic reason

Pritzker says June eighteenth has special significance at a time when the high profile killings of African Americans have sparked widespread calls for change. And through protest and policy, we're going to make that change. From genuine criminal justice reform to a fundamentally reimagined vision of policing to sustained investment in black communities, we will build an Illinois full of justice, equity and opportunity for all our people. And we've got more about June. Eighteenth on our website including our own Angel Ito's family connection to the day, and now joining us from various locations around town are Mike Flannery of Fox thirty two news. He had Eureka of the Chicago sun-times Gregory Pratt of the Chicago Tribune and our own Amanda of WTT debut news. Everyone I want to begin our discussion tonight with police reform news from this week Chicago Police Department missed seventy percent of the reform deadline set out in the consent Decree Mayor Lori lightfoot in her newly appointed Police Superintendent David Brown released a joint statement that read in part quote, the level of transformational change and reform that we are working towards cannot be achieved overnight. We can do better, and we are redoubling our efforts to meet important milestones mandated by this consent decree, seventy percent of the milestones not met on time. Mike flannery what kinds of things a CD failing to do on time here? Well, it was interesting Ma-. Maybe we look at it from the point of view of what the mayor and the superintendents say, they're gonNA focus on here this trying to establish this cultural competency of the the idea that officers will understand the neighborhoods there in that does seem to be a an has been a problem for for many years and and then they're going to. To focus on deescalation collation skills so that the officers who come in are not tempted to do what Jason Van Dyke did and suddenly you know within seconds of stepping out of the vehicle, pulling out a gun, firing sixteen shots, and then moving to reload you know those kinds of basic skills are what the department is still falling short. Those those dozens of deadlines. I think you can get overwhelmed with it. But when you look at the big pieces I'm reminded of what governor Pritzker said about repeatedly about dealing with the unemployment. Claims in the pandemic with IBS. They were trying to build the airplane in mid slight. That's clearly what this overtaxed and stressed out Chicago Police Departments Greg Pratt. Is that a sufficient excuse for the Police Department to Miss, seventy percent of these consent decree deadlines, which we should mention grew out of the killing of a quantum McDonald. Can they just say we're overwhelmed and we'll do better. Yes I get to be bad cop here because the answer is no and you know what much of that is much of those deadlines that got asked as pre corona virus, so you can imagine how much worse it's going to get, but this is a department that has always struggled to do paperwork whether it's oil requests or other things, and you're the city of Chicago if you're the mayor if you're a journalist. You got demand that the city picks up the pace. Because this is one of the big issues of our time and to say, we're busy. Doesn't do it. This isn't. This isn't some random foia requests or something. This is a this is A. Essential thing for the safety of officers, and for the safety of the public, and this is something we should do is put out by the federal. Monitor Maggie Hickey model, and he had Eureka. One of the things she said was not really. Agreed upon was an established protocol for police officers that are in schools. Does that poor more fuel on the fire for the folks that want remove police officers from schools? You know when the mayor says that These kind of reforms that we want. are not going to happen overnight. I would ask the question How many months is considered overnight, and and and how many years is considered overnight because this is not overnight eight, this has been many many months that the department and the city have failed to meet these deadlines, and so this is par for the course for the Chicago Police Department and for the city in terms of making department. Do what it's supposed to do, and when it comes to cops in schools. Schools absolutely, this is a huge issue now and it it's it's further evidence to community advocates who say that cops in schools only creates a school to prison pipeline line that there is further foot-dragging on doing the right thing all right well. Let's move on to some other news this week. A landmark wait a week at the US Supreme. Court I the court rejects the trump administration plan to end deferred action for childhood arrivals or Daca Mayor Lori. Lightfoot says she was surprised, so let's hear what she had to say. Can you weigh in on the Supreme Court's decision to block up president trump's end to Dhaka calling an arbitrary. I hadn't. Others good news. And a truly. That's good news. I'm grateful. There are so many people. There are so many young people. Who contribute incredible ways? To the vibrancy of our country. They deserve. And have the right to be here. Finicky, the president said immediately that they're gonNA try and Redo away to legally. End Daca, so is this just sort of temporary relief for dreamers? It do think is that not just because of what President Donald Trump doubled down on today in saying that he is going to move to again and Daca, but it's because it. This is left to the whim of any administration until you really have a law, I mean I it and so it's an executive order at this point. Advocates are saying we need congressional action and I will say however for any sort of recipients that of course on pins and needles, and all points in time, those who have already been deported by ice believe even as this has been outstanding issue. There of course is a in an election. In November, folks are very energized for it in a lot of things in government. Is We all know? Do take a Lotta time as the previous. In, obviously the COPD consent decree meeting guidelines and deadlines chose it takes a lot of time. Those wheels of government turn quite slowly, therefore with an election on the horizon. Those who want from out of the White House. They believe we're looking to that and perhaps hope that he is going to be able to do much with Dhaka before that point in time, things change of course where he'd be real act, we'll see if this becomes a political issue or it does seem like a majority of the country supports supports dreamers Mike. Flannery, also this week's. Court does rule that workplace. Discrimination Protections extend to lgbtq workers. Are you surprised that to so called? Justices joined with the liberal bloc on this ruling. Well I guess it's easy to say yes, but when you realize that one of another justice who actually dissented from that opinion read Cavenaugh. He congratulated of the the gay community, the the activists and the lawyers who had won this victory, even in his dissenting opinion and Saluted the outcome. The the dissenters in in in most part the drew legal distinction. Saying this is not the way to do it. and they that was their disagreement I. I think it shows how fast public opinion has moved I. Mean we've talked a lot about it, but remember back. Obama was first elected when he was first elected, he did not support. Support a gay marriage, and then, and then shifted once he got into office, certainly a cultural issue that has moved rapidly and let's come back to another cultural issue. Being talked about here in Chicago, and across the country Chicago, City Council approved an ordinance commemorating. June teens, but not officially recognizing it as a holiday here is what Alderman Leslie Hairston had to say about it. I am angry and I don't apologize for that because.

Could you give you could split that? Up between him and pip like where's that money coming from his points about Jeb Bush? Learn Steve Kerr and the rest of those guys come back on one year. Deals is absolutely fucking that on balls accurate and I do agree with him like. Hey you probably COULDA got Scotty. And honestly at that point after they want three in a row and they'd be going for four zero. I would love to go back. And Look at the nineteen ninety nine offseason sucking trade acquisitions in what was going on. The market like players could have both positive. Michael Jordan was like Y'all I'm doing one more. I'm doing one more like this. Clyde Drexler not go to the Houston Rockets. Or does he come off the bench for the ball like shit like that. I don't know no you're right. And they didn't really talk about how that was the lockout year so the shortened season which seemingly have played curve to the Bulls advantage because the bulls were older. And you know kind of tired but I want I if they would've known that. Then maybe Scottie would've taken a one year deal because who knows what were the salaries pro rated. What what's the deal there? You know what I mean could have got more money in two thousand and when he would have been playing for another full five years. There's a lot of. There's a lot of website and I think it's hard to say. It was interesting from Jordan's perspective that he didn't want to walk out on top it was maddening. He said maddening to leave at your peak. That was very interesting and it contradicts already set earlier in the documentary. What did he say earlier earlier in the documentary? They talked about how he's like. I'M GONNA GO OUT ON MY TERMS. I'M GONNA go out of top gotTA WANNA be like cling around for like the rest migrants stopped so like but maybe the city like. Hey he still was on you like he wasn't done being on top like then it's like. How much do you know how much where we heard? From 'EM J. You know we roll. Our Eyes Julia mad now. I'm Jay leg. I made the joke. Like I feel M Jay's got fucking struggle bowls on his list like everybody's on this fucking guys so at some point is kind of like. Is this really a real thing like seventh where he really manning? Did you WanNa get away but you give the Guy Credit? His loyalty to Phil Jackson was through the roof. And I'm curious. That was the first ten to drop right. Feels like I'm out. I'm my coming back or do you think it was kind of forced. Phil's hand because they just didn't WanNa fucking all the money they I think I think it was already decided. Like they said and he would. Just fill it. Well Point Fills I. Why do I need this Jerry? Krause is being a Dick Jerry. Reinsdorf prize right there with them. If you don't want me if you want fucking Tim Floyd out of Iowa. State my guests at some point like yeah not even an ego driven thing at some point. It's like if you don't respect that I brought six championships here with this team. Like I'm done I'm just done. Yeah you know. And then Ends with fill the coffee burn bucket. I Dunno sounds like a pretty cool ceremony. I don't know it was it was. It was a nice way to wrap it. Up Though Ibiza fries if staved Abbas doing a coffee burned bug thing in the backyard at some point the next week or two guys And all support him if he does. I love the way that came out from Phil Jackson. He's Deep Zang Guy. That was something I think. A Lot guys got beyond Michael Jordan right palm does. The prize surprises me. Though at Yeah it does. Is it a pump. Do you think it's a home that rhymes or do you think it's one of those palm dog. Is this voters. It's just like a weird. What is one of those like throw a bunch of hard for heartfelt sentences and words around and it's a poem you know probably ought of being chose all young Jays. I this is what I want the cities Chicago to like the the Celtics and like the Lakers. That was pretty awesome. And then just it's just fades a black man. It says what happens. In no mentioned the wizards I was happy about that and and that's it was awesome. I it was really sweet. I have one bad negative Like partying gift from this experience. And that's the realization that you know he really doesn't fucking care about Chicago anymore and I just you know he didn't come back for the. All Star game that bother a lot of people I was interested to see the documentary. Got GotTa feel flora. Am I read on? This is is he just doesn't give a fuck not blame. The Guy Whatever. However should happen he came in here. But it's clear that is like obligated came Near Win Championships. And he was GONNA do this for Chicago. But there isn't this longstanding bond with him even though his legacy inch was strongest any athletes in any city of all time so it just kinda sucks that like. Reinsdorf fucked up that like nj leaves as a fucking contractor like he came in here did his job and he's fucking out. Your that is very sad. It's very unfortunate like we would kill to see that guy back at fucking United Center. Give him one more entrance and has had the place literally do a standing all for however fucking minutes. It would go. Yeah can't imagine how long that look. What do they have to do to get them back it? It sucked sucking socks. It does man. It does Dan man. I'm Kinda said while that was because they had like the hard close with that what he was like fucking comments came in. I told I told Chicago. Do this get it you know. And then they fucking. It was Har Harkat. Can you think of the movie? Your experience like hard costs like that or like the Bulls rebuilt. I guess not and that's not but but the top to bottom five weeks ten episodes. Did you get what you wanted to do? You like it. Yeah I got what I wanted. I think it's going to be like Godfa or to Where the timing I think twice about a frequently and as I go back and watch it. I'll probably it'll get better over time like I'll have. I'm looking works. Great Stories in there. Definitely watchable how about you. Yeah it was awesome man because like I told. You I'm twenty nine. I didn't get to remember you know I didn't get to watch a lot of that. Live and I just didn't remember it a lot of it. So COSC- how it went through to get the fucking clearance and the clarity. On the Steve Kerr incident and a bunch of other things it was it was awesome and needed to be done. And you know like you said with a guy like Mike you never know like how closed off he would have been. There was no guarantee that we were ever going to get that. You know so. It's awesome that we got that and I mean that thing's GonNa live forever you know it's GonNa live forever. That's a great point at son daughter. If I have kids were GONNA sit around watching him to be able to tell stories about. It tells a story perfectly. It captures the essence of Michael Jordan. Like the excellent competitor perfectly. We had a lot of moments. We grew up watching him so To hit that threshold with us you know I would imagine basketball. Fans alike. Didn't have the opportunity. Seem as close as we did probably are just fucking Florida with it. So the honor percent. It's GonNa hold up man. It's fantastic. It's it's like yeah you're right. It's going to be there forever. So Yeah Karl von Man. Five weeks of this re watches. Watch ten playoff games time out shows. Thanks for thanks for joining me. as always But that's it. Thanks everybody for listening.

"R. Eligibility requirements and additional terms apply. Okay let's hop into the show. The end of the last dance. I mean bat was fucking awesome. It was wasn't it? Yeah I won't start at the beginning but just right now there's Ryan high off that ending. Were you overall like are you? Did you feel it? I thought nine was better than ten. That was a game of thrones season. One through six little treatment. There were episode nine. Did a little bit for more me than episode ten I want your reaction for much more. You're very jacked up and I wanna take advantage of the fact Linear Jack Dot. Nolan's air jacked up got it. Don't just just. Let's let's start with you that when we we like to start order anyways so we'll start with that episode nine. It begins in like a Reggie Miller montage. They're tied up Miller because he calls them black Jesus Jordan calls them the best team that they faced outside of Detroit and it just sets up for an awesome seven game series in the Eastern Conference Finals. And they do a great job. I just I'm a little. I was like that was my breakthrough moment episode nine because they have the ninety eight Eastern Conference Files Games one through four Michael almost hits it like rims out then they just cut back to the nine seven finals against Utah Jazz. Then I tell some story about vitamin ROT. It'll Brian Russell. The trash in I liked that I was just like caught up. Like oh it's ninety seven files. We're talking about ninety seven. And then they show him hit the game winner game one so I had I you so we can they kind of both that up for me a little bit between the ninety seven finals in like the Eastern Conference finals. So is a little hard for me to kind of like once. We cleared that like once. He hit the game winner and then go to the flu game. I was Kinda like I think I kinda see where this is dawn. Okay she kind of came together. Here's the thing you do understand. That might have been a little tricky for them because it was the finals. Matchup was back to back. It was the same so to kind of make people understand that with time line. I could imagine them shooting. That was weird right. Yeah I think that's pretty weird because they're like well. How do we make this clear that this is the ninety seven files in the ninety? Seven finals isn't really the store anyways. for whatever reason. I mean they really. We didn't get any of the nineties. And although I love the fact that they went debunk Kerr. Like I didn't see that coming at all. Yeah that was crazy. And what probably episode nine. What gave me the goosebumps. Before he got Kerr was when he was assessed. Still San gotta come through Chicago. You still gotta come Scotto. I was. I don't know that Jack me up. That might have been my favorite quote or my favorite like killer instinct. He could see your eyes Michael Jordan moment. Yet through this whole time episodes. You know okay because there's wanted episode ten that I don't Wanna I don't WanNa ruin we're GONNA stand up as the flu game story. Heard some speculation before think someone leaked at story in our livestream before so I was prepared for that. It's still a wild story yet. It's crazy picture that five people walking up with a pizza and fucking Salt Lake City. Utah being all like. Where's Jordan like we're going to give them this fucking Sawdust Pizza? That probably has who knows whatever the fuck is in it and picture in them all getting that call you know three M. obviously if you're Michael Jordan's guy you're probably on-call like forever. You know what I mean you are. There's no no time is off limits. You Get up and you go no matter time. Place Day vacation doesn't matter into them walk in that room and know that he's got a game that day and look down on them in the fetal position was probably insane. Yeah terrifying for a lot of reasons although I feel like people closest to. Mj could see that game coming. We've got an obviously the media. You probably can't say tonight inside bullet you know if you round up John Michael. Wozniak cost latte like the boys that were close Damigella. Y'All what do you think's GonNa happen the night behind closed doors? You-know-who like dude. If he's sick he's tell him he's going to kill them all. There's GonNa be a little bit of a different kind of attitude. Different type of killer instinct for sure and do you buy Jerry. Sloan saying he didn't know he was sick Yeah I mean Jerry. Sloan Emmy is hall fame competitor. I feel like Jerry Sloan all-share you're like he's got he's got nothing to prove like he's going out there trying to drop a good game plan so I gotTA respect the compliments in Chicago Florida unless you feel differently. I mean he's such an old school dude so if there is a coach to believe on that I would give him the benefit of the doubt of anyone. But you know how it works like if you're in a locker room and there's a game going on the fact that no-one muttered to him hayward is Michael's pretty sick. It's hard to believe mice foot do you okay. Here's a it kind of reminds me of like baseball when they're like Yo I have. This is relevant. I guess with the Astros but before they'd be like hey i. Have you know a tip on the pitcher or like you know? I got the signs. Do you want the signs some hitters. Don't want to sign some hunters are like. Hey Don't don't get my groove. So maybe Jerry. Sloan was the coach. Where it's like if you wanted to Jerry as long as a MJ sick. Maybe Jerry slow as the typical. I don't give a fuck of one hundred and fifty percent you know. He's bad guy. I got my own plan. I'm sticking with that I don't care who is doing what over there Jordan is still going on the court so we still. I'm still going at the game plan for sure. Now now on the subject of coaches in episode nine. You've probably your favorite moment of the entire documentary happen in the coach. Involved Michael Jordan Denis. Let the cat out of the bag too early. Ed You roll with it all right. Obviously there's nothing better than Larry. Bird waiting for him in the fucking in in the bowels of the United Center after after getting eliminating game seven. Yeah I I don't see too many people chirpin but I did get a sense of like. Ooh This is interesting and I guess a little weird that they went down the Steve. Kerr path like you said it was. It was definitely interesting but there was like there was a sixty eight minute chunk sackman right there. There was like oh well. This is very why. I'm ready for a finale here. Already to wrap this up. And that was like the beginning of a story of like Steve Kerr and it was cool about the packs and dynamic and how he told them I can trust you. I was into all that but then with his dad I was like. Oh Okay so when I saw people being like. Oh that was that was weird like whatever. I was like all right. If you didn't like him saying you know you bitch fuck you bird at the end like you're worth the price of admission right there for episode nine. Yeah I mean I think that kind of set the stage for later but it's cool to see. Yeah close. He Larry Birkbeck. I did have the sense I was like. I wonder if Larry Bird played like with the Pacers on that game like he came back for like one game only was like six guy off the bench. Or whatever you could. He of made the difference because as we joke around. Ready scored zero points in that fourth quarter. Now Larry looked a little less. I guess he didn't look as much of a killer. You know what I mean like. That wasn't like the player. Larry do you think he's obviously one is titles as a player. Do you think it means less to apply to a coach if you've already won and he's already proven yourself. Yeah one hundred percent. I think Larry Bird Larry wanted income. You get a coach in because you want to make some money and he didn't play the time when you were making you know the money Michael was making and he obviously missed out a couple years on like massive endorsements you was endorsed but so I'm sure at that point Larry. Bird's career beat out of the train. Team one winning several championships being famer considerable the grades. First of all time is probably. I'd be interesting. Feeling for him is seemed to be taken at pretty like he seems to be. Pretty happy for Michael. I think in that case Larry. Probably serious. Those first round lost the Charlotte Hornets. But it's like Yeah Okay your game seven Eastern Styles. Chicago like he lives down. Jae What do you do about Larry for sure for one thing? We've forgot to bring up. What the fuck was brought by an Russell? Doing go going to them when they when he was not when he was still in baseball when he came to say hi to. Carl and stock and he's like Yo. Why did you like I wanted the chance to guard you? You gotta you gotTa be an idiot. Of course who would have thought that came back to bite him in the ass but I mean what? What Dumb Guy do you believe that story word for Work Guy? No Johnson was a little shit. Had like you thinking that I mean I don't see I don't see why Michael Lie about that is as a vengeful spiteful. Guy I think he remembers conversations like that more than any type of conversations period. You know. Yeah it's a good point. But like what if he was like many? What am I pry Russell? Brian Russell came up to him. It was like man. Dude I want to guard you. He's he's saying that like you know would have been so cool out of respect and I'm like I'll fucking kill you like a little less threatening. A little less cocky. I hear what you're saying you know. There's of every story. They didn't have Brian Russell on there. Do they know you're right? You didn't get on there and fucking defend what he said. Jay Price their towns like I would never say that Michael Jordan. Why would you do that? Although who knows I did like the fact that Michael to set the stage when they brought up by Russell episode nine about how he played on the front of his feet. And how you could like direct traffic with them and stuff and so he's like yeah. I knew that guy played overly aggressive and stop. You just got to catch them off balance so sweet interesting. Some other notes have here from Episode Nine. Kerr's parade speech incredible. Yeah like the price of admission..
