'Boys State' Helps Teens Learn How Politics Work — Perhaps A Little Too Well
"This is fresh air, want a glimpse into a potential future candidate for elected office? Look no further than the new documentary called Boy State. It's about an annual event in my government for high school students sponsored by the American Legion. By the way, Bill Clinton and Cory Booker went through the program. Boy state begins streaming Friday on Apple, Plus our film critic Justin Chang has THISS review. Since they were founded in the 19 thirties by the American Legion, the boys, state and Girls state programs have been giving high schoolers a practical education in how government works. Students in every state are chosen to take part in a weeklong summer experiment in which they must form their own representative democracy. As we learned from the opening credits of the terrific new documentary Boys State. No Clinton, Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh and Cory Booker are just a few of the program's famous alone's A film, directed by Amanda McBain and Jesse Moss, focuses on the Texas boy state event that took place in June 2018. We see the roughly 1200 participants arriving in Austin. Where they are randomly divided into two political parties, The federalists and the Nationalists. Those names carry no agenda. It's up to both parties to hammer out a platform, choose their leaders and then run against each other in a week long election campaign. McBain and Moss throw us into this mark government exercise without much preamble or explanation of the rules of the game. My politics itself. The action can be a little confusing. Unlike politics, it's never boring, mainly because the movie wisely focuses on a select few participants. Either. The filmmakers were extremely lucky and their choice of subjects or they shot so much footage that they were able to isolate the most compelling personalities. In any event, the four young men, we spend the most time with all in that playing key roles in the experiments, nerve wracking outcome. Most ambitious of the bunch is been the Federalists Party chair who's willing to do anything to win votes, including smearing the Nationalists on Social media. Dennis, politically conservative. He has a Ronald Reagan action figure to prove it. And he despises what he sees as the liberal tendency to divide people along lines of race, gender and disability. Then speaks from some personal perspective. He lost both his legs to meningitis when he was three. Care of the Nationalist Party hails from the opposite end of the political spectrum. Progressive black teenager originally from Chicago. Renee knows he stands out in this mostly white, conservative Texas field. He also stands out on merit. He has a seasoned politicians command of rhetoric and can deftly out argue any opponent. It is also capable of calling for party unity, as he does in an early speech. My grandmother told me a few things you have to have faith, hope and a bit of a pissed off attitude. I want to be civil and represent a whole working body. And we're gonna take the example of a plane body. It has two wings left one, right one. We're not gonna pick one. We're going to stay in the middle, because we're not intolerable party where one that is palatable to all. And so as long as we're able to keep this plane of foot with a healthy right wing in a healthy left wing, we have the ability and the capability to pummel any fairless into the ground because we're the only party that's where voting for because it's this party that's going to represent every individual. If Rene has the sharpest mind and tongue and boy state, its heart and soul belonged to Steven A fellow nationalist party member. Stephen becomes an underdog in the race for governor, the highest elected office. Like Rene Steven stands out. He's the son of a Mexican immigrant, and he counts Bernie Sanders among his political heroes, his humility on the campaign trail and his stirring honesty in front of a microphone. Prove irresistible to the crowd. Again and again, he invites his fellow party members to tell him what issues are most important to them so that he could be a better truer representative for their concerns. We see these young men debating a lot of issues, especially gun control. There's a lot of talk about protecting the Second Amendment. But there are also counter arguments from students like Steven, who have clearly been shaken by the sheer number of school shootings. Another much discussed. Issue is abortion, which leads to one of the film's most revealing moments. A nationalist gubernatorial candidate named Robert, who's running on a strict pro life platform. Admits on camera that he secretly pro choice. Sometimes you've got to say what you've got to say in an attempt to win, he says. That's politics. Indeed, it is. And while the filmmakers are working from a mostly neutral fly on the wall perspective, their attitude toward the boy state program feels ambivalent. At best, Deliberately or not. The experiment seems to bring out a lot of the flaws of America's political system itself. Personal attacks, dishonest tactics and conflicts that hinge moron popularity than substantive policy debate. It's undeniably inspiring to see so many young men with bright, engaged minds and the best of them, as we see from the end of the movie have already gone on to impressive new accomplishments. But it's also dispiriting that so many of them have already learned to view politics in the most cynical way possible as the game to be won by any means necessary. Justin Chang is the film critic for the Los Angeles

Former Christian Music Singer John Steingard: I No Longer Believe in God
"It was the twentieth of May of this year. John Stein. Guard best known as the lead singer of the Christian band. Hawk. Nelson made a post on instagram. He said this is not a post I ever thought. I. Would. Right. But now I feel like I really need to. I've agonized over whether to say this publicly and if so, how to do it? But I now feel that it's less important how I do it and more important that I do it so here goes. After growing up in a Christian home and being pastor's kid playing and singing and a Christian band, and having the word Christian in front of most of the things in my life, I am now finding that I no longer believe in God. John. Stein. Guards post went viral and became part of a global conversation inside and outside of the contemporary. Christian. Music. Community. That I. say that fairly my friend. Yeah. Yeah. You came out they necessarily. I noticed you wording that carefully I like I didn't say eighth easiest. 'cause I don't know where you are. If somebody says, are you an atheist John? How do you respond to that? Right? Well, I mean at first I was like well, I don't. I don't know that I would call myself an atheist because I think at the at the beginning my understanding of the word atheist meant that someone who believed there was definitively God and I've learned since then you know correct me if this is not correct but. That my understanding now is that the word atheist. Who Lacks a belief in God? an and that is I guess a pool that I'm. At, the very least dipping my toe than. People. You. Know. We're all eager I mean. I'll admit to that first inclination to think, Oh, I. So want him to be in my camp, right? Sure. tribalist where like. Look now we've got somebody who can talk about the. The whole experience of the faith and Christian music. But he's now an atheist and I had that just sort of microseconds excitement before I paused and took some of my own advice and decided not to get hung up on the label. I'm more interested in your journey. Let's talk about hawk. Nelson a lot of people in my audience or just now being introduced to the band I. Sort of did some homework. You tell me how I do on this church, Canadian Christian Band Rock, and pop funk I understand that was sort of. Mitigated a little bit as you took over as lead singer, eight years ago is formed back in two thousand. Eight studio albums pretty impressive resume songs. including. Bring out was featured in a two thousand, five film called yours mine, and ours with Dennis Quaid and Rene Russo. The band I think had a cameo in that film. Right? You Guys Ron. How we actually got to be on set and in the movie voted favorite new artist, my CCA magazine in their reader's choice awards February two, thousand six. You've got some video time on vh one that same year you played, I love the names of these big Christian festivals like creation. Fast you know or when you guys did plenty of those winter jam host live concerts picked up a grammy nomination back in two thousand, eight, the original lead singer and Co founder Jason. Done left the band and twenty twelve replaced by. You John Stein? Garden. And I want to know about you, I, mean I was looking at your discography and you guys were like sold out all in pro Jesus Christian message had an L. type stuff, I? mean. About the band. Yeah. So I think we all grew up. In Christian and Christian environment in Christian culture in sort of towards the late nineties like right around the year two thousand. There was this where we're from in Ontario Canada. There was this. There was this whole vibrant community of like young musicians and people in bands, and so that was like a really normal part of our our culture and it was sort of very tied in with youth groups and churches and stuff like that And initially when we when we started taking the band separately seriously, I was the guitar player just for your audience for clarity. I was the guitar player before I was the singer. So when I became the singer in two, thousand twelve. Does not when I joined the band. I joined the band two, thousand four. but But yeah, early on very like pop punk, a sort of a music and. There was this thing going on in Christian culture at the time. where? Christians wanted sort of Christian versions of popular bands because there was this sort of like movement of like, don't listen to secular listen to Christian music. If you like blink one, eighty two, instead of listening to them, listen to Hawk Nelson like that kind of thing, and so I think early on in our career, we were a little bit more vaguely positive. and. We're just sort of a Christian alternative to bands like blink one, eighty, two or good Charlotte. Radio, we used to call him God or girlfriend song. If you guys did that you talk very guilty, definitely, very guilty of that because crossover I don't know that was a big term when you guys were playing. Christian broadcaster, the the Holy Grail was. Man of you could get this Christian Song on pop and rock radio like. Stream radio and it catches fire. You guys have those sorts of designs on the secular quote Unquote Secular, music? Industry. I mean honestly I think at the beginning, we are philosophy was very intentionally like We want to make music for anyone for for anyone anywhere like that was sort of our approach we. I. Don't think we ever thought like, oh. Let's trying go mainstream or let's try and go Christian like it was sort of like. We just want. We just wanted to play for. You know anyone who who cared. The record time certainly at some point to where the record companies like. Are. They trying to package you or so are initially, we were on this label called tooth and nail out of Seattle and and their their approach to that stuff is pretty hands off like. They were always known for being a a label that would sign bands that had Christians in it, but wasn't like overtly Christian that was sort of their their their their sweet spot and they. They were really like not pushing us to be one or the other

Beetles eaten alive observed escaping from frog's other end
"Biologists studying the water Beetle finally discovered why it can survive, even though it's constantly being eaten by its primary predator, the dark spotted frog. It turns out these little guys it once they're swallowed by the frog. Just crawl right down and out the frogs, Anis. That's right, Dennis. It's a science word. So apparently 90% of the water beetles who get eaten by these frog survive by doing that, which is again just crawling right out that frogs Croker Come on Dark spotted frog to your food. Here's the amazing thing. And I love this. So the scientists were like, Okay, this is what happens. The Beatles come out alive, the other end. But is that just a natural accident of the Frogs digestive system or the Beatles actively doing it? So they actually and I hate to think of these poor beetles. Paralyzed, some with like wax so that they couldn't move and they fed them alive to the frog. Those Beatles didn't come out,
Amy Spowart, Head Of The National Aviation Hall Of Fame
"Many years especially when right field was more impactful when the foundations of today's age were taking off so much research with here at Afrl, and there's all kinds of research and aerospace research places that are here. It made a lot of sense Scott Crossfield even said to me once amy, you're not a pilot unless you through right field everybody who's anybody flies through right field, and of course, you know in the early days, there were Ayla celebrity who always came on China and it was John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart. Who's who I remember? My first enshrinement in nineteen ninety, nine Ted Williams came at Joe Foss. We've had John Travolta Dennis, quaid miles, O'Brien all been and sees it the hall of fame event but I would say following the economic downturn of two thousand nine and companies started to pull out of the Dayton area. It was harder to get that kind of support. So while the city of Dayton wholeheartedly loves having the hall of fame here we also Need people who can sponsor because we receive no federal state or local funding at all whatsoever. So we have to depend on aerospace aviation companies industry to support US and in Trimbe it was a big help us getting brand recognition. It's never been moneymaker. It's part of our mission to memorialize. So we need people to support our education and support are learning center through sponsorship. So what we decided to do in two thousand seventeen is actually take quote unquote. Show on the road, the Oscar night of aviation left Dayton and we went to Dallas first, and then we went to DC in twenty, eighteen and Denver and twenty nineteen than we were supposed to have a homecoming here in twenty twenty. But of course, the this year has been postponed until two thousand, twenty one we're working on getting is back to the National Aviation Hall of fame in Dayton use an abbreviation there a F- on the Air Force research. Lab. So. Here Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Employees. I think it's twenty to thirty thousand people in. Southwest Ohio, and only about less than half of those are active military. So there's a lot of research scientists here, and that's where the United States air force does all their most important research everything from what they're going to build aircraft out of to what their munitions do and Jet Propulsion. It's all located here in Dayton at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Still is very much a hub of aerospace activity. especially from the military and. Speaking of which there are signs that the or the appeal of aerospace is not resonating with the youngest generation do you sense that and if so is the hall responding in some way? It's hard because it's just like covert. The company's nonprofits that survive cove. It are the ones who are going to adapt and react to the situation with kids with this next generation they're not so much looking up lake weeded or the generation before me did Neil Armstrong stood in one place and what's fair to the sky and we all know the Wright brothers played with a little plastic helicopter type thing that inspired them. So we need to appeal to kids in. What interest them? So that might be if they're interested in the environment, they WANNA make less noise from aircraft. They want less jet fumes from cargo plane. That kind of thing we have to say, why not you? Why don't you figure that out? It makes me think of enshrining clap Myra who wanted a safer jet plane. So he thought about it and thought about it and he Allen Clapp mark came up with this idea of putting a parachute on the top of. A plane and everyone's like that's not gonNA work except the vision jet is pretty remarkable. So what we need to do is have kids interact or read about or they have to know who Bill Mayer is, and it isn't just Alan Shepherd. It isn't just the astronauts it isn't just the inventors it's all the Chinese and they can inspire kids more than just an aviation. It could be designed it to be dreamers that could be artists, but if we all have. Heroes. That's what gets kids going and if we give them a problem like make less noisy aircraft or might be a kid who's a Gamer and they sit on the computer all day, they're actually going to be fantastic drone pilots. We just have to recognize what they're doing and adapt to it.
Election 2020: Biden's VP Pick
"There's plenty of general reporting out there about each of the possible women who Joe Biden might pick to be his vice president. We're here now to understand the Jewish angle for each of these impressive women to learn what American Jews should know about each of these candidates that might make them more supportive or concerned. So we're going to go one by one and get the Jewish angle from our guest Jacob Corn Blue, the national politics reporter for Jewish insider. Jacob. Thank you for joining us to be back. Let's start with Comma Harris a former candidate for the Democratic nomination a popular senator from California the State with the second largest Jewish population in the country. What's the Jewish angle on Senator Harris? First of all, she married to a Zionist of that Iraqi gets her a Jewish scientist. Yes. So that gives an upper hand in this Jewish of IPE stakes I think that Kamala Harris gives a lot. She adds up to the ticket number one just because she was a popular candidate and people. So her at the start as a rising star and somebody who can really take this to the very end unfortunately it for ourselves she didn't win the primaries should take on. Joe. Biden pretty early which gave. That rise in the polls in the only of twenty twenty. I will say that Biden. Biden comes to see who is preferred choice for Veep Kamala Harris has a big name recognition. Is Obviously arised star and her background, a label as being a black woman from California. But was so high tides in the Senate and in the Jewish community. So the pros are out. The cons are that I'm not sure Biden Israeli looking for someone on the ticket would potentially overshadow him not because Harris Donald understand that if she's on the ticket, she's number two and she's there to serve the presidential nominee and possibly the president. But Because Camera Harris ran on the same slop because she is a bishop you know she can overshadow him in media appearances and potentially as vice president of being a little more independent and vocal than let's say, Dick Cheney and pence on camera beyond the you know the happy coincidence of the Jewish husband is there anything in particular that Jews should know about Senator Harris is policy stances? What has she? Done on issues Anti Semitism, what has she done on supporting Israel, other issues of concern to the Jewish community I guess close ties with APEC obviously. She's spoken at several APEC conferences but she also appealed to the mainstream of the Democratic Party She's not seen as a controversial figure amongst progressives say as someone who is too pro Israel for them she will reflect the same policies that Biden Obama and. Anybody, else running a Democratic Party other than on the an Warren's she would you know align herself with the second policy views? So I don't think she's outstanding. She's not too long in the Senate to look back at a record by think, she has a strong provisions record and she is aligned itself with the mainstream of the Democratic Party next, let's talk about political MIA fights, Susan, rice, Susan Rice served. As US ambassador to the UN in President Obama's first term and his national security adviser in his second going even further back in time actually I think I think she was the youngest ever assistant secretary of State She was you know thirty three or something like that when President Clinton in Nineteen Ninety eight made her the system secretary of State for Africa what did you need to know about Susan? Rice. Well Susan Rice first of all is A. Mixed emotions about Susan, Rice obviously, she has good ties with prominence numbers of the Jewish community and she has a record serving as national security adviser and embassador to the UN on their Obama Democrats SAPORTA. Mostly Obama's policy when it comes to how other than the last UN Security Council. Two, three, three, four, a resolution, and just mind our listeners about two three four why that was controversial. The only time when Obama. ABSTAINED ON APRIL then. All on settlements that you know really couldn't dent on Obama's record when it comes to a majority of American Jews talking about Republican Jews, all those. In Israel who soul Obama as being the more salt when it comes to the Palestinian issue. But Susan Rice obviously had a this overlap from being a national security adviser and the to the UN. Obviously, she was a controversial figure on this front. She was criticized by Dennis. Ross by the full hug combative style. When came to the Palestinian issue on the other hand, she has very strong ties with somebody like a Fox who is very vocal in his pro Israel stats

For the New York Post and a longtime columnist for the both The post and the News rush. You and I spoke with his brother, Dennis family, also a terrific columnist of mine. And, You know, people who know their history may remember this. But Pete Hamill was a pretty close friend of Robert Kennedy and Hammel helped persuade Robert Kennedy to run for president back in 1968. He worked on Kennedy's campaign. Then he covered it as a journalist, and he was one of four men who actually disarmed, sir. Hand, sir.

"dennis" Discussed on The Darren Smith Show
"Yeah, correct it could It could take until on next year where you really start to see him more into rotation But I think there's other real chances to some high leverage innings pretty quickly here. Based on how good stuff is, of course, to get past pretty good testing the dodgers seeing that he gets into one of these games coming They have the dodgers again coming up so We'll find out pretty quickly whether he's ready for the spotlight but everything that they've gone from camp and training side, and you look back to last year the teachers game the strike out guy in Philadel- was also making me stay tonight. that's one of the best prospects, not the best prospect in baseball He seems to thrive in these. Be Spotlights and he's he's got personality that's really Really you know electric and magnetic for a lot of people. So they think he's he's pretty well equipped to handle the high leverage innings. It's something like this year. Dennis and we've talked a lot about on base percentage quality of at Bats right we've talked about a lot of that sort of thing padres may sneaking up on people number one in the big leagues. Now through eleven games with seventeen stolen bases, a lot of teams will tell you they don't care about stolen bases. They don't care about their runners, baserunners stealing them. They don't care about protecting them I wonder what you make of the padres now seventeen stolen bases thus far on the season. I. Guess the numbers oil surprising. What's not surprising to you're being this aggressive just because that's kind of been eighty dollars more more I guess more of an old school philosophy than. some general managers. You know he he wants guys who go deep deepen ballgames starters and he wants to put pressure on the opposing defense. So you know now they have, they have the ethics do that and. They've been drilling on that throughout camp, and now they're putting emotion I think you know load remains to be seen is whether they can keep this pace up for the rest of the season obviously I think they they shown they have the power it. Doesn't really matter if they're stealing two or three days of the game I mean, they look guys in you know. The one ball. So I don't expect a space to keep up, but I can be pretty aggressive at least in taking action on expedient it even if it isn't a stolen day. Dennis the catchers the two catchers here have exactly the same amount of at bats. One has one more hit than the other and I think everybody knows that the numbers are two for one one for the other including the game winning RBI. Last night is to your understanding here how is j Tingler deciding day in day out which captured a role with out there on the mound or out there behind the plate? Number One because he can switch it although noted, there hasn't been hitting much hitting going on Guy and then some guys.

I have somebody drive me to the session because I wasn't old enough to drive. That's amazing and also noticed I saw on the label and you are actually credited on the label. Yes. That's kind of unusual. Isn't it? Well, back in the day you know the guy had his own record label and I would have done better had he had distribution which I don't think he did so. And that's probably why he did it. That way was that in Detroit I don't think it was I only heard it played on w accelerating was a country station I, heard it on. Weeks after I recorded it which I thought was pretty cool. When I graduated from High School. I volunteered for the draft and then I also volunteered for one hundred first more deficient. So at eighteen. At. Fort Campbell Kentucky with the hundred and I and it was interesting because I had heard later that Jimi Hendrix was on there at the same time although I did meet him.

"Rock. Radio's is disappeared. They don't play new music. They'll play people like sticks classic rock but they don't they don't have new new rock stations almost none because pop is king right now. You know you've got one persecute and they go into any produce some and they have thirty dancers. Nothing is all entertainment. If people like it I who might just say don't like that. By short as we know right now entertain yourself if you like it. You like it but rock and roll as a viable source. Gone Dead talked to Gene Simmons. Get HIM ON. He'll say he'll tell you you know we were lucky. I lived at the greatest time in the history of mankind. Be MUSICIAN THAT PERIOD. Sweet spot never never before and I'm thinking ever afterwards as as many musicians have the opportunities that we had to that whole period to make to have long and fruitful careers. I was lucky. Birth was there when no Internet no distractions you know Gilbert a dead time frank. Music was everything to you. You got the albums you looked you read absoulutely immersed liner notes if you could have got porn on the Internet phone. We're out of there. A how it was a great time was the time of top forty radio deejays with personalities and it was a golden age of radio as well as it was well as rock and roll the good guys. I'm at one stage W. MCA mass yes. You knew each one. Were you friends? Yeah and you guys are both from New York. Yeah Yeah Yeah. We grew up with cousin Brucie. And those guys and sure Harry Harrison and Ron Lundy and I think I don't want to sound like three guys sitting on the beach in my ninety sitting on Miami beach talking about blood pressure but they were lucky Because if we start if anyway denigrate the music of today then you know you sound like Dean Martin. Did the first time you saw the rolling stones. The change was coming. You weren't GonNa stop it same thing now. People like pop music. We can't stop them. That's a rather rather ugly moment when when the stones were on that the Martin thing any I know I know exactly what you're referring to yeah I was mocking. Well it can you imagine Dean Martin and Mick Jagger. That's just goes to show you the human voice a- person's voice away it sounds when you're seeing is so subjective. How can how can millions of people? Like Mick Jagger. Andy Martin odd. Yeah and I heard you talking about your favorite singers and this this this connects to something. We've talked about a lot. Gilbert I you talking about favorite singers and you said as much as you admired somebody like Sinatra. You don't want to hear Sinatra attempting a rock song or or even a pop song. Because he wasn't he wasn't it wasn't a suited for it and it brings to mind of course Gilbert our favorites Sinatra's cover of Mrs Robinson. Yeah you coo Coo Birds Mrs Robinson reminded me of when you were talking about your favorite singers about McCartney stevie wonder Elvis everyone you'd see like not even with music like with. Can you see like Bob? Hope do one of his specials any dress up like a hippie. In one part you go. Ooh He don't don't to hurt. It was quite authentic striving out of their lanes. Yeah well trying to make a buck. Yeah here's here's a good question from a listener for you. Dennis from Ray Garton. Can Dennis tell us the one big negative thing about being a Rockstar that nobody warns you about advance probably wreck contracts contracts Be Be careful what you sign when you're young you know you'll sign anything because you want the opportunity and those things always come back the cause havoc in your life. So that's the most important thing the rest of it. When I was in the heyday of all that stuff it would be pretty tough. The fine any real negative except for the fact that you had to constantly in motion and you had to be like a comedian. You've gotta be when you walk out there. You know this Gilbert. Nobody gives a shit. If you don't feel good they don't care what's going on you're there you know to please an audience and that starts out joyous but after a while its job it really is job. No the dream is any dream is always better than the reality of the dreams I think show business became a job for all of us a long time ago. Y'All absolutely I think it's fair to say well it's like I love when people say to me out. What are you doing times when you don't WanNa be funny and you don't WanNa tell and I think well they're you know if you work in a grocery store and you don't feel like working in the grocery store you still have to go there? That's right and we're lucky though. I mean look what we're doing on people assign far too much credibility and love to us. Who Do this thing? They don't know us. I wrote an album in seventy seven called the grand illusion which dealt with the same problem right told the audience clearly. Don't be fooled by the radio. Tv magazines we create an illusion to divert people so they can be entertained and you know help them not be so like right now. Perfect example the universe is not. They don't get it. I doesn't care about us. Universe doesn't it's about repeat wash and replenish change and we don't want to think about that and so they see it. Let's go see Gilbert tonight. He'll make us left. Let's go see Dennis today. He's going to sing a song and we'll feel better. That's what we do and I used to think it was frivolous bullshit but now that my audience is in their sixties. They'll tell me just how much what I did for. A living made a difference in their life and I think how did that happen? I was just trying to beat. Aerosmith within Queens. Yeah I had people come up to me and say you know when my brother or my mother was dying. We would listen to our recordings of your comedy bits. And it's like you go. Oh my God I thought I'm doing meaningless. Shift someone's dying. They put on the Aristocrats Gilbert. Does that had to set your mind? What they said how much it meant to them Gilbert. We know each other well enough right now because I want to ask you a question. Okay.

But and her jewels were robbed from a room, and she called her mentor Yoda ide- fix patriarchal figure Vittorio to seek o- sobbing about the loss. And he admonished her and said don't cry about things that can't cry about you. This is probably as close as you can get to that though, obviously nine eleven when the buildings fell you knew what our loss of life at represented not the most horrific of memories this one I have not been following completely because I was out but listening to it on the radio, and I think there's no loss of life. Thank god. But this would test that theorem about don't cry for things to can't cry for such a. Amazing building in the middle of. An amazing city. Lost in a lot of its safety and beauty in the last few years due to man's inhumanity to man, and then to lose this. Hub in the hub-and-spoke cultural center of an unbelievable. So. It's I know like I said, it's kind of odd when something hits you with a left hook because I would think ordinarily architect buildings. I guess it's more about the history and all the things that have happened and all the things that it has survived. You know, the Han. Yeah. I mean, I it's just to to see it. Go dad is unsettling law on not as much beauty in the world as there used to be or indeed we've gotten so pie post about everything that were chided for maybe immersing ourselves in just the beauty of surroundings. So when you see this happen in shake show. Little you think. Wow. Didn't know that was in there. But. We'll we'll keep an can keep an eye on. So I didn't even know what I'm saying. Yeah. These are moments that remind you when you try to be wise, and this is what social media is about all that. I just happened to be doing the podcast today. Yeah. He was them in the moment is a very rare gift. And I'm I'm not sure that we all shouldn't just zip it. So I'll move on with the the podcast, noting the irony, of course that the. In. In the same wing that the mayor of south bend, Indiana, Notre Dame. Odd name like, but a witch or whatever announces he's running. It's a big Notre Dame has bubbled up in the cultural and worldwide zeitgeist for the the week with some interesting and in this case, devastating happenings. All right. What else is up Christian? How are you? I'm doing quite well, not right now Christian not right, please. Don't jump in trying. I heard Trump right away this morning say, hey, get some planes over it, not there is a builder there. You know, I- living out here in California and seeing the fires and seeing these planes come in low and drop the I guess it's a tough call, and they probably don't have planes hanging around, you know, where they can suck a hose into the Seine and put this out from above. But you have you been in Notre Dame Christiano? Yeah. It's it's been a while. But yeah, I've I have been crisis shortage..

And she is she changed my life when I met her Dennison, and listen, we've been married forty years and with with every marriage, companionship it, oh, there's there's ups and downs. But you know, it seems that for me it's always been about her and the way she handled things because she's been, you know, the glue behind everything to tell everything together. And and so she allowed me to play tennis until I was fifty. Yeah. You know through the regulatory, and then the senior tour, and now it's her time, you know, she as well room. She loves Lauren ballroom, dancing, and, you know, a love loves the practice loves go into the competitions and everything, and you know, so she stayed home enough.

"You're out of here on your own is so something about the being off the electric Griddle that is the United States of America, the competitive nature, which is its beauty. But also it makes it hard to mesh seamlessly over here. You have to be beyond good to creating excitement, you know. Whereas in a lot of other countries, you know, if you're just if you're one of the best, and, you know, you're you're so far above because of you know, you're not producing so many greats out of. Out of tennis or out of other sports. You know, but but here it was the competition and everything was so was so not when Tony Roach wins in Alice Springs, when he's eighteen the word goes out, right right throughout the land. Right. There's something happening out not near the on their Ayers Rock. There's a kid with Rosie who's gonna perfect, you know, the good game travels. Over here. You're right. You're going up against Lee consisted, sixty nine months. There's loose story. Every second though, you kinda getting buried poncho. Then begins to punch a cigar begins to go out on the road with. I was so enamored of what he was a brilliant. Tactician wasn't he? Yes. He would. I I never watched anybody else play it. I always felt that my game was good enough. And if I was going to win go play my game. And if it wasn't good enough, you know, go play again. But poncho would go study my opponents and come back and say, you know, JIMBO and not many people call me that and I've told you that and and when he come back, and he'd say now, you know, when when you get to this point and this happens, and then you you've got to play the ball here. And when you play the ball here, you're booth and has to be like this. I mean, he, you know, he didn't he thought it out? He he gave it all to me. But he gave it all to me and such a condemn. Matter way, Dennis that, I didn't even know he's giving it to me. It's perfect for you. Because you're like a dog will run through a wall. If you get fed at the right time, somebody who respect I was I was at and I would've been and and I did, you know, I've got the scars to prove it, which you know. I wasn't. I wasn't afraid to do that. And and to put it all out there and to to leave it all out there because when I walked off the court. I was done always pretty good about that. I would know. But I didn't want to look back and say, jeez. If I'd have done this. You know, I could have you know, maybe I could have one I never felt that way. If I didn't figure it out there. I wasn't going to figure it out five minutes later. Yeah. I ran into John Lloyd last week in in Florida. He was with the rob Schneider where we're doing together. John light, lovely cat. I know you're good friends with him. And he told me. Unsolicited. I said, you know, I'm haiku Jimmy's. Yeah. I know you are and he's at I'm telling you for a year that guy hit the ball screws. He didn't miss a shot. I guess you're twenty one and you go a hundred and three right? One hundred wins three losses in the course of sees didn't lose many of that year. I I had a pretty good year that ios good. Well, he said that the one of the great injustices Johnson was that you had one three or four that year. And you would he's listened the French. He's rolling Garros at that point was like playing in a truck rally. I it was mud right? The balls were they might as well been billiard balls. But he said he couldn't lost. He wasn't missing any shots. But that year what what happens they screw around. Right. But there's turf issues, and you don't end up at the French. Now, I got banned from the French because I played team tennis, which was Billie Jean King came Ben with this new idea for tennis where I played.

"You got there early as you needed to get there to hit that thing. Right. Yeah. He was he, and I say this respectfully and in in some ways harmful, you know, he was tough. And but you know, I knew that if I walked off of there, and he was even a bit satisfied. Then I must've done something. Right. But the way he trained me. And and you know, I was never in the gym was was always on the court. And I was on a track are doing something, you know, outside. I was never inside doing it. But I remember days Dennis when when I'd start jumping rope. And and I you know, I'll Pat myself on the back yard was pretty darn good at it. And and and I'd be jumping in. And I said how much today Paul? Five minutes, and and he'd be walking around, and and you know, kind of going through his own thing and talking to you. So now, why don't you do, you know, why don't you try to get the ten or fifteen away, and we just keep going and just keep going, and he'd be trying to distract me. You know? So that if I'd miss I have to start over, you know. And so, you know, now, I'm trying to listen to him talk. And I'm trying to pick up my face. So he was teaching me two things at once is teaching me, my footwork, and he was teaching me concentration all at the same time without me, even knowing it, you know, so that to me that was the best part of by family upbringing of playing this game and getting into it was that they gave me a such a great opportunity and a chance to get better. And I didn't even realize it. Yeah. You know from day to day. It was never work. It was always so much fun going with them. And and being a part of the day, you know, popular, even the jump roping session open ended the Sunday gray that translates directly in the alright fifth-set. Let sat. Oh up. I'm ready to go, brother. My my grateful through was letting me jump roping walkaway for a second and not told me when it ended. So if we gotta go all night. Let's go right, right. To me winning six two six two was always great, you know, but winning seven five or seven six v or ten eight and a fifth or whatever, you know, so much more is brought into the game because everybody hits the ball. Well, everybody's a great player in my opinion. But it's that one little something that that allows you to to be able to look across the the net to your opponents say I've got this on you. I know for sure, you know, and I'm sure guys looked at me and said the same thing to me many times, you know, but there's always, you know, I never got tired. You know, when when the fifth came along, I wasn't gonna play less aggressive. I was gonna play more aggressive. You know? So I mean to system what what gets into your mind, and you know, an, and and, but I was always good at finding a reason to push myself. Just that little bit more. You know from a lot of things that happen during my upbringing to you, not even you know, even to my modern day when I was when I was still playing at the top and was good to be able to push myself just a little bit further. Well, then we're talking by the way to Jimmy Connors. And folks, I, you know, Jimmy always soft sells this, but in the open in the open era. There's nobody's won more tournaments in my man hundred nine maybe federal gets there. Maybe doesn't think he's eight or nine out. Once you're near forty over forty and not everybody has run at thirty nine thousand hopefully to me, God bless Fedor. But he still gotta get there seems like a good cat. But nobody has one more tornadoes in the open air than the man sitting across from me always admire that about him..

"He's translated that sort of indefatigable -bility that you've got to kill me thing into his real life. Just is a strong guy, and he's got strong opinions. And when we talk in the morning, I find a cathartic because it's the opposite of wishy washy, but we ended up talking about tennis because God knows I've ever watched so much tenants in my life, and I'm always enamored of talking to him about it. Most people say they don't want to start at the beginning in these interviews, but I do because there's nowhere else to start man. You had a beautiful based orca off of with your mom, and it's funny. There's always a quartet of people in the book that are referred to it. It's mom and pop and it's a poncho, and it's to mom, and you know, it's it's a it's a pretty amazing. Explain this this group of people who has. Guided you through what is obviously one of the mount Rushmore tennis careers of all time. Well, first of all dentists, I mean, you know, my mom, and my they gave me everything I gave me life, you know. And and and then to come into, you know, an opportunity, you know, to be able to be around the tennis into play the tennis that I happen to take to it. But that grew, but I got to spend time with my mom, and my grandmother, and my grandfather, and and, you know, which to me was the most important that was my family, and my brother was playing tennis at that, Johnny, Johnny. Yes. And so it was really, you know, just, you know, something that as far as family goes was the most important, but I think my mom gave us the tennis to really get us away off the streets and to give us something to work work at it. And to try to get good at maybe get a college education somewhere along the line. But you gotta remember back then no money. So why was I really gonna play tennis? You know to to try to get good. You know, and and that wasn't my mom's idea. Well, I want you to get good. And and I want you to go out and make a lot of money on this. You know, get good get along the way, you know, grow. If you can't get better. And then see where tennis takes you just love the fact she passed on what she was good at. Yeah. I just read Jimmy's autobiography recently, it's called the outsider. Great read, folks. And I had no idea and I call her his mum. I get bring myself to look because it seems to flip. But your mom was a hell of a player when she was. Yeah. She was she was the the best in the Missouri valley, and and her mom, my mom was was quite a player herself. And she was self taught. And then she taught my mother, so I'm third generation. But yeah, she traveled and played Ponsa. Girl was great friend. Bobby Riggs was a great friend. Pauline betz. The the great players of, you know, the women players are the day were all her friends. And you know, she was. You know, even till the day. She died nobody outside of her poncho cigar to people that absolutely love tennis, more than anybody. I've ever been around and and even up until the day she died it was on. It was it was quite an upbringing. When Jimmy says to mom, you have to explain the the vernacular there, but that's closer where with your grandma. It's my second mom, you know, if my mom was out teaching and she did most every day to to supplement the family's income. And so my grandmother my to mom was feeding her sandwiches through the fence. But also taking care of my my brother, Johnny and myself also along the way, so that she could make all that possible to it was it was a really from the very beginning. Whether you like it or not it was a great team. You know, but back then, you know, team did meet anything not like it does today. It was you know, try to make everything possible. So that we can do it. We really liked to do and, you know, play in the tennis back, then Dennis was much different. You know, there was no indoor clubs and great facilities. You know?.
