The road to electric vehicles with low sticker prices
"About five percent of vehicles being purchased each month or electric and the United States I think it's only around two percent but we're getting very close to the tipping point where the actual purchase price. Without any government incentives or subsidies will be cheaper for an electric vehicle. A gas engine. Tesla. had. Their much over hyped battery day recently where they talk about the things that they are planning and how they're going to get the cost down and one of the things that was headlined is that a five thousand dollar electric vehicle will be available in about three years time but Tesla. You believe it when you see it, but generally I must tends to over promise but not under deliver over promise on timeline. But the trend line is clear that the cost of batteries down eighty, five percent in ten years and the price curve keeps bending all around the world. And so once you have an electric vehicle, I can tell you it's much much much more fun to drive than a gas engine vehicle, the range getting better and better the new. Tesla. An model goes five hundred miles on a charge or will go five hundred miles on a charge. Yes. That's early next year right now the best they have is four hundred miles to charge, and so the range anxiety people have had will go away. Although the focus has been on. Mostly, what Tesla's dine in what others are chasing behind them with passenger vehicles? The big market place. In the big effect on people's wallets going to be with businesses that are going to electrify their entire fleets. You're going to see that Amazon in particular. is going to be way out front. With their massive fleet delivery vehicles going one hundred percent electric ups and Fedex are GonNa trail some but then no name trucking companies. Or going to overwhelmingly. Migrate. To Electric, which is going to reduce the cost of distribution in the United States because the electric vehicles are so much cheaper to run. THAN THE GAS ENGINE ONES And this is an important thing for our vehicle market with GM. Ford and Chrysler. They've gotta get moving with us because foreign automakers are pouring tens of billions of dollars each. Into electrifying their fleets because they know that's where everything's going. And I want our American on appeal manufacturing to be strong and remained strong. And we've got to. Be Innovators. We've gotTA. Be Moving ahead of the rest of the world. Not trailing them.
NFL WEEK 3: Our official predictions for who wins this weekend
"So. I gave talk about. Obviously a game that still sits our my mind from last week. The Atlanta Falcons go our land Alcan's play. The Chicago bears this week. Chicago was to know the Falcons are all into one o'clock on Fox. Obviously, the Falcons. About that the shambles, the the. Disgusting performance that we saw last week losing a game that they should've never lost Dallas cowboys now going to Chicago bears team defensively is still one of the better teams in the NFL. Immature bisky while not playing. Ultra, great. Still playing well enough for them to win. If, you look at this game, you would think the Falcons will win because one of the Falcons do have going for them as they do have one of the better offenses in felt even to the two weeks you've seen that. And they're going to a bears team that. Can Be, offered to challenge America can be limited. So the Falcons you put up points. The game should be over now the falcons defense does have some questions, but I do think they would put voices should be enough to create distance in the bears it'd be able to pick up the whip. Obviously the bears are companies just gave a lot of confidence. As they should. To An older, start the season I mean. I saw some Falcon fans tweet about it. They don't necessarily want the T. Blues remember they're only to the of this dot over by any stretch. But people really what? Dad Queen Gone. And so. It's Cadillac Party. Wants. To lose. The ship but the Chicago bears going to three eight. Oh probably be one of the young shockers of this early season. I'm going to very hastily picked the Falcons to win this game. I think they they are the better team. Now whether they actually leads to the results on Sunday we'll see but I'm going to go the Falcons to win this game as they are the better team to me. I, Think Matt Ryan will continue his great start to the season. I think are often will continue to click. There are questions of Julio. Jones will play this Sunday I. Think he will. He usually plays to injuries when his Julio not move something now he did. Have a setback in practice but. You know I think. He should be able to go. and honestly, if he didn't would be great for my fantasy team either but I got kindergarten if I need to step up or racial gauge. So yeah. But yeah with the Falcons. Next game forty niners, giants, I've this Games interesting. Remember last week. The point is playing metlife stadium loss Garoppolo MOATS are. Bosa, Thomas they lost a lot of guys last week. And the. Giants team who? Looks like they'll probably be at the bottom of the barrel the NFC east. Especially after losing saquon Barkley. For? The. season. When I players were scared to play at metlife stadium because they felt like the the stadium turf in and everything was the reason for a lot of those injuries that they had last week when they played the jets. Now. I it's. It's interesting to see what it's GONNA be 'cause they're playing a backup quarterback backup running backs they got sued offensive Lineman. I still don't have Richard Sherman. You have a lot of injuries. and. So this may be a winnable game for the giants I mean, you don't really know what to expect from the forty niners this week. So it'd be you say here they of Jimmy, Garoppolo at least played to me I. Think you would be like, okay for eight hours I think we'd still be able to win, but we don't know how good the Ford back for Norwich backup QB may play. I mean, luckily, the void ours have a lot of defensive talent still. So it's not like older pleaded they have nobody but. It. Isn't as comfortable as A. But I would still in my right mind, go with the four years to win the game.

Shannon Sharpe reacts to Lakers GM 3 loss to Nuggets in Western Conference Finals
"III LOVES SIGHT THAT LOSS. From the Lakers and how about we break it down right now guys Lebron. What is third triple-double this postseason, but it wasn't enough against the nuggets. Last Night Denver led by twenty as late as the fourth quarter Lebron Ford in thirteen points in a last-ditch comeback at. Albury, finished with a team I twenty, eight, ten of which came in the fourth defend off Lebron the Lakers and hold on for the one fourteen to one. Oh, six Windsor Shannon. What is the biggest reason? The Lakers lost this one. They came out they came out and look like a team was to oh, and they just thought you know we don't come on here and do what we do and and not play hard and you could tell early on the nuggets were getting whatever they want. They drive laid up in the paint they you'll get to his dominant hand his right hand. Kiva phenomenal player. He's GonNa make shot skip that shot that he hit with the clock winding down on the right foot. I note most guys right handed shoot that shot Dirk Nowitzki made famous what he shot off his left leg I've never seen right hand guy shoot that shot up the up the wrong foot. I mean, 'cause we shoes tonight expected to go in everybody that's a bad shot clock winding up I expected to go in but I did not expect the Lakers to look this flat. We've haven't seen them even even against a Portland skip the first game even against the rockets the first game they didn't look this flat they I'm like broad do realize the western conference finals. you mentioned it a D. Two rebounds and they came in the last five minutes of the Game Hey deeply forty-three minutes. Avail one rebound white one rebuilt. If you tell me skill that the nuggets will out rebounded again by nineteen. If you tell me, they're going to turn the ball over the Lakers. I'm going to say the nuggets going to win the series, but I don't believe that I believe Lebron ad will play better I. Believe Lebron will be more aggressive because I thought the second the second in the third quarter. Eighty go it and it seemed like Lebron was designed to say you know what you gotta go hey, we're gonNA keep going. But skipped ahead, given up so much ground they had dug themselves. So much of a whole maybe if they don't allow get a eighteen twenty, maybe ten twelve now they can complete the comeback but I thought the Lakers played like a team that was looked. Like they didn't have they had a away game and if through this game away but what are the process what you've done if that you giving these guys confidence because now they think they can beat you they do they feel like Murray for sure thinks he can be yes and he's talking like He. SHOULD BE UP TWO GAMES TO ONE IS I've seen story before the thing is with this guy when he gets hot and. Those lash those last second shot because I saw him in game seven you remember the clock out of both have and he throwing up three's from twenty five from thirty feet and he switching. So he has confidence in their gaining companies but the problem that also has get, you can't have every guy that played for the nuggets with the exception of to a temp equal to or more free throws they Lebron James that tells. Me He's not getting he's not driving the ball. He's not aggressive enough or they're not calling it. So for me, that was the different. They just lacked intensity. They came out like a team that was too low and had the game to throw away I. Expect I know for certain and I'm going I, don't care I. don't care what the line he'll. I won't do on it right now you do I won't do right now.
It's the Little Things
"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost for want of a shoe. The horse was lost for want of a horse. The rider was lost for want of a writer the message was lost for want of the message the battle was lost for want of a battle, the kingdom was lost. Small things can have reverberating effects on history both good and bad. In fourteen fifty three, the great walled city of Constantinople fell it had withstood sieges for eleven hundred years. It had held off fire from the then state of the art cannons for weeks. The Byzantine said even Ford soldiers trying to tunnel under the wall autumn Turks were finally able to overrun the great city because someone left the door open. One of the many gates in the fourteen miles of wall had been left open during the night and the Ottomans flooded in. Killing Constantine the eleventh in the battle and bringing an end to the eastern Roman Empire. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. It was a freezing Christmas night in Trenton. New Jersey during the revolutionary war. The English Colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall. Commander. Of a mercenary infantry regiment of fourteen hundred has seen soldiers from Germany sat down to a good supper and an evening of entertainment. He and his men were celebrating their recent victories over George Washington's volunteer army, and of course, the Christmas holiday. Safe from the bitter cold and the pelting sleet inside a wealthy merchants home that they had commandeered. They relaxed safe in the assumption that no one in their right mind would possibly try to cross the Delaware River at night in a blinding winter storm. Someone challenged role to a game of chess, and before long he was deep in tactics and strategy. There was a knock at the door. And exhausted young. Messenger boy came in bearing a note from loyalist farmer. It's important to remember that about a third of colonists still consider themselves to be British and didn't want the revolution. Raw paid the boy little notice took the note and put it in his coat pocket without opening it. That pocketed piece of paper would cost him and the war effort nearly. Two hours earlier and ten miles away. Washington's men had begun being ferried across the icy Delaware. River. It took over ten hours to get all twenty four hundred men over to the New Jersey side. The conditions were so adverse five men froze to death. Then began the arduous march to Trenton in the dark. The plan had been to attack the town from all sides before dawn, but the troops didn't arrive until eight am. During the attack which lasted only an hour forty of the German. Henson's were killed and the remaining thousand surrendered. Colonel was mortally wounded. When his body was found the unopened note warning of Washington's crossing was still in his pocket. If role had read it, he would surely have had his gross of professional soldiers prepared. He allowed his pride and the weather to lull him into thinking his enemy was not a threat. Had he won the battle he may well have killed George Washington James Madison James Monroe John Marshall Aaron Burr and Andrew. Hamilton The. Second, most common premise in alternate history circles behind what if Germany won World War Two is what if the south one the American civil war? Two pieces of paper dropped in a farmer's field almost brought that about. Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Whose statue in the middle of my hometown of Richmond, Virginia has recently been given the historical context. It's so sorely needed. In the form of tons of. Graffiti. Issued Special Order one ninety one during the Maryland campaign before the Battle of Antietam. In the order lead divided his army, delineating the routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the units to reconvene. Adjutant Robert H Chilton penned copies of the letter endorsed them in Lee's name. Staff. Officers distributed the copies to various confederate generals. General Thomas Stonewall Jackson in turn copied the document for one of his subordinates, major general, D H Hill who was to exercise independent command as the rearguard. A Union soldier Corporal Barton W Mitchell of the twenty seven. Th Indiana volunteers found two pieces of paper bundled with three cigars as he marched across a farm in Maryland an area recently vacated by Hill and his men after they had camped there. The order provided the Union army with valuable information, concerning the army of Northern Virginia's movements and campaign plans. Upon receiving lease lost order. Major General George McClellan leading the Union army of the Potomac proclaimed. Here is a piece of paper with which if I cannot whip Bob Ely, I will be willing to go home. He immediately moved his army in hopes of foiling lease battle plans. When Lee heard a copy of special order one, ninety, one was missing he. He knew his scattered army was vulnerable and rushed to reunite his units Antietam Creek near Sharp's Berg. Lee's troops arrived tired hungry and many were sick. The Battle of Antietam, would go down as the bloodiest battle of the American civil war with casualties recorded as twenty, three, thousand dead wounded, which was usually as good as dead or unaccounted for over the course of the half day battle. That's nearly two thousand soldiers in our one every two seconds. When night fell both sides ceased fire together, their dead and wounded. The next day Lee began the painstaking job of moving his ravage troops back Virginia. Here, some scholars argue another solitary decision had far reaching consequences. Despite having the advantage. McClellan. Allowed Lee to retreat without resistance. From his point of view, he'd accomplished his mission by forcing Lee's troops from Maryland and preventing confederate win on union soil. President, Lincoln however thought McClellan missed a great opportunity to potentially end the war three years earlier than it ultimately would.
The Secret to Better Sleep
"Is so let's talk about nighttime breathing during sleep and what the differences of breathing through your nose versus breathing your mouth. And what that has to do with our our oral health. Right. Yeah it ends. The same of this talk we've been having his. Teacher important will take taught me something very important about what we need, how fade our bodies and that the crucial nutrients your body will tell you when you're missing the critical factors. Bottom and nutrient needs the thirst in the mail and the first nutrient that your body needs. You can only go minute without it is oxygen and so. In mouth, we can see when not breeding with delivering enough oxygen to our our body and how this translate to add dental health is that as we mentioned before when agile is done developed promptly when we have been narrow up gloomy have risen, tasted done fit that's the back of the magazine and mandible the upper low joel the done developed that is by definition airway space, and so what that does is it pushes us into. What I like to call survival braiding, and what happens is that we are designed to break through the nose and there's some very deep. Raisins for that. In that in the nose, we released nitric oxide which mixes with the air goes into our lung and increases blood flow and pushes auction right throughout the body. Now, when we have crooked up-to-date and the hi pal, we have nasal sinuses that have a low of volume and we don't breath around knows as well as we would when we have nice and central wide jaws. Lovely Watch faces. So what happens is that we learned to break through Mao and this is delivering coal unfiltered there. That's alert air immune system gives us things, Swanson's and Adenoids but what happens is we don't deliver so oxygen and the most crucial part of this is that the mice hungry that the patio body requires auction is the brain and so when you're a breathing correctly, you're starving your brain of oxygen. And so this can happen through the day. You'll bring me through the mail seventy, five percent of the time. Your brain isn't getting enough oxygen. But when you go to sleep, there's one thing you have to do, and that's brief and deliver your brain oxygen and the reason for this is that when you go into deep levels of sweep, your brain is depending on your breathing pattern to take your nervous system into his. Level sleep that then allows himself to clean now and so oxygen and braving patents or what control that. So if you have the small crowded mouth with and you not comfortable with Nicer braiding, you'll then pushing your brain into survival mode during during slate and so as you mentioned, sleep apnea sleep apnea is the most the most severe form of this condition of airway and oxygen deprivation, and that's when we posed. During slave to ten to twenty seconds, the You Count Ten to twenty seconds in you on your hand. That's what people are doing up to thirty or forty times the not, and that's your brain in deep distress, and so this is how we increase the risk of Alzheimer's Disease Dementia and mental decline because we're not giving us a brain opportunity to regenerate and to replenish itself with the the crucial nutrient on. And where I was sharing earlier in the interview is that we typically think of like the you know if anybody has a family member or know somebody diagnosed with sleep apnea we typically think of somebody as. Being usually quite overweight. The one of the things you started noticing and hearing about from some of your colleagues is that there's a whole group of younger. Men But especially women that were coming in. With sort of these symptoms of anxiety like waking up in the morning with anxiety and Tell us how that also relates to this breathing through the nose versus breathing through the mouth. Absolutely. So when we started to talk about the spectrum sleep disorders, now we see obstructive sleep apnea is at the very very severe and but what they found in the nineties at Stanford, a Research Co. Christian. Gilmer found that there was a group who've is patients that's showed positive results for a mandibular advancement splint, which is a dental sleep device. That didn't that were diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea and what he did was he called it. New. Syndrome called Airway Resistance Syndrome and it's not a recognized medical term yet. But there are many many studies and lots of research out there showing that people with upper airway resistance, syndrome, which is exactly what it sounds like. It's an airway that has more resistance. So Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome is characterized by an increased pressure in the airways and. How this happens in the body is that when we sleep your muscles relax and that increased pressure is detected by the Brian is receptive at the back you threatening the Airways the tell the brain what the pressure is. Now we have a small bone structure and the muscles relax. What happens is the brain is constantly being sick these precious signals and it relates to a choking response. So the brain has been sent into fight of what? Response, and so this is a survivor when these wackle survivals sleep, and so what happens is that your brain will respond by pushing the Joel Ford and so the most common sign of Airway resistance in Jeremy Teeth grinding and we say this in the Dental practice busy look. But what happens is that people may not even notice that they have the syndrome. You know they slave they wake that I feel that rested. It's because your body doesn't get to reach date levels

You'll filling that void that drugs and alcohol had that was now being filled. With recovering I think that's one of the one of the promises and one of the gifts is to have really to friendships like yourself and others. Throughout the year. So it's nice to see you and it's nice to be here in the same capacity with you being able to carry, put a face on recovery and carry the message of hope who have ever imagined it right when. You talk about how much you lost but. We're so glad that you've gained so much and we're so glad that you continue to hold onto the expertise that has put you into the role now as vice president of Business Development for this organization at really a critical time, not only in our growth but as we. Address the pandemic of. Corona virus. And you're in charge of a lot of that effort. Can you take us through the process of developing and law launching? He's willing. Betty. Ford's telehealth strategy. Sure so because. My background has always been in technology. I was looking ahead and trying to predict kind of where the industry was going to go is you're looking at technology and healthcare in general I. Think it was pretty clear that technology utilization in behavioral health was really lagging in particularly even more. So in substance use a lot of organizations didn't even have electronic medical records. And you looked at the look at the industry, look at the industry problems, patient problems and care delivery problems back in twenty eighteen. When I HAPPEN TO HAVE A. Demo of some software that one of our pair partners was developing. And it clicked on me that. This technology could be. Used to deliver care differently. So was in two thousand, eighteen we started to talk about how could we use video? In live video between patients, not just in one in one environment which was being done. For telehealth for for years. But how could it be done in a group environment because the problem we are looking to solve Was Access. We're working with a lot of our partners around the country and communities. Academic health centers and other state organizations in healthcare to rural organs. Rural patients is a real challenge. So you know, could it help provide care improve access to roll Marcus would the convenience? Of being able to get care wherever you're at improve engagement. If you live in downtown La Chicago New York you know the catchment area is really small and some big cities because people don't want to fight the traffic after work to get the care. So convenience improve engagement. And the other was would. Stigma. Could we help through overcome some of the stigma. By. Not Making people physically have to show up at a building Kinda put a label on themselves Kenneth come out much more in a sense in Kuwait engaged them earlier by having them. Feel it's safer. As, well as convenient. To start that way. So we it started in two thousand eighteen down the past, and could we accomplished all the goals of of healthcare which is approve access improve outcomes improve. Patient satisfaction and lower costs.
Carmakers rev up electric truck, SUV production
"You, see them everywhere nearly fifty percent of all vehicles sold in the US, our sport utility vehicles the International Energy Agency reports SUV's are second only to electric power for the increase in greenhouse gas emissions in the last decade. But there are a new wave of all electric SUV's and trucks is coming and these new vehicles may be more powerful and boasted longer driving range than many of today's gas-powered SUV's trucks. So, how quickly will high tech these take hold in the next decade Chelsea Sexton is an electric car advocate and consultant hi. Chelsea their quick. Sketch here, how close are we to the next wave of electric vehicles and what will their capabilities be? We're going to start to see more of them in the next year or two obviously things are slightly influx with the pandemic but most of the automakers are still trying to be within a few months of their original targets and we're seeing everything from plug in hybrid jeep wrangler with thirty miles of electric range for around town driving and. Gasoline after that, all the way up to f one, fifty and riven with a few hundred miles of expected range and I'm interested in that F one fifty story because that Ford truck is the top selling truck in America I think there were nine hundred thousand f-series trucks sold last year and I see that they're retooling a factory in Michigan to build the first all electric f one fifty. What do we know about that role? Not very much. We're expecting it late twenty, twenty, one, early twenty, twenty, two something to that effect and they've not released really any specs other than videos of hauling trains and things to try to prove that electric vehicles really do have as much more performance than gasoline trucks, what other electric pickups SUV's Few years I'm watching all of them. There still are some open questions about everyone of them in that most vs today of any model have been sold only in California or the carb states owens have mandates requiring evt's there's not that many vehicles that are available across the country, and that will be a huge thing to prove what the trucks regarding who's serious, and WHO's not. That's an open question for folks like Ford, will they make these things in volume and sell them nationwide and really get behind them with the marketing and dealer support or is this going to be more of what we refer to as a compliance car which is basically Will sell as many as we have to in the places we have to, but not really in it with their hearts well, and part of the answer to that might be consumer attitudes. Right? I mean you helped launch an electric vehicle for GM back in the nineties. Have you seen consumer attitudes change in that time and if they changed enough to bring in the truck SUV drivers ironically that generation in the nineties had more trucks than SUV's in it than than small cars everyone knows the ev one that was the one I was involved in but Chevy and Ford made pickups at the time and Honda and Toyota made small SUV's so it's Sort of feels like we're yanking the automakers back toward where they started. There's still a lot of education that's needed. There are lots of people that are not even aware of electric vehicles, but in part that's because they've never seen one and they've never been available and so people can't buy what they don't know as even possible. So there's a lot of education required on that front but the interesting thing about electric vehicles in general is that it is the only example in the history of the automotive industry in which the industry itself has required demand to predate and continually exceeds supply. What. That sounds like is every time you hear it automaker executive say when we see demand for electric cars will start to build them. So it's always been the market polling for from the automakers versus the automakers trying to build their own market for something. So it's a parallel. Yes. Of course, we need to do more education, but we also need to start building things that people can see our else. They're never going to be aware of them in want to buy one. What about the politics of this? How much do you see that playing into the success of the next generation of truckin SUV models I mean we'll some people just not wanNA drive one because of their political beliefs it's possible however. The irony is that there has always been a fair amount of right wing support for electric vehicles because they use domestic energy, they keep more money in the local economy. We're not sending money overseas before an oil, and so it doesn't always get talked about in this administration because the politics kind of ebb and flow depending on the administration but there is a fair amount of conservative support and they're not just sort of this liberal technology that they're made out to be. So all politics tend to be kind of transient and. I've watched it shift back and forth over the years. So I don't expect the current politics will be permanent But at the same time, this has always been if not politically driven certainly policy driven it is those external incentives and mandates that have helped compel with the advocates and market asking for them electric vehicles for twenty five years, and it will probably remain. So for the next several at least are there any other barriers you see to electric truck an SUV sales? The single biggest barrier today is lack of product. The second biggest is lack of marketing and awareness and education and people not being able to buy what they don't know about and the third biggest dealerships across the board with any EV model if dealers aren't comfortable and wanting to sell vs they're not going to be successful at it, and so we can put billions of dollars into those first two things. But at the end of the day, if someone walks into a Ford dealer in his told well now, you'd really rather have the gasoline f one, fifty, not the electric one that one's Kinda goofy. All of that money and effort is wasted what about the pace of change and I know we're focused on electric vehicles today on the transportation emissions but overall with climate emissions I mean you you live in California you've been watching this for decades. We've got these terrible fires in California and Oregon this week are we moving fast enough now? We're not and that is not a widespread enough opinion yet. But regardless of why they come to the table, the best thing we can do is make more options available and attractive. So it doesn't matter if someone is coming to an AV because of climate change or air pollution or any other reason if they're coming for Torque and horsepower I'm fine with that. The goal is to build more of the table as we have more seats at it not be so concerned about why people come and sit down I'm all about the Torque and horsepower Chelsea, Sexton electric-car advocate and consultant. Thanks so much for sharing your perspective on climate cast today. Thank you for crash your party

"This is going through a show about women who found themselves in situations where they said, give the behind me Satan and they made a decision to make a change in turn something around I'm your host Tracy Clayton. I was working two jobs and I was stressed out about money and you know just a million in five things going on. This actually Ford, she's literally jack-of-all-trades. Jill of all trades, a black person of all trace she. A humorist and she's a host. But around a decade ago before she was writing about folks like Violet Davis, billy porter missy Elliott Serena Williams, she was living in a basement apartment. At least she thinks it was an apartment. I was living with a family who had essentially taken me in so that I didn't have to live in squalor nothing but a really low fiber carpet that was still damp in places, and then there was the grey concrete it was dark it was musty it felt like walking into your own depression. Actually was baroque she was a college student and not to mention she was in a relationship that was really starting to give her path. I always felt like my ex had a lot of darkness in him and what he was attracted to was my light and that was how we balance each other out. I didn't think that he would hate my life because he couldn't have it for himself. This was ashes first real relationship but Ashley notice a huge red flag when they would disagree he felt like it was disrespectful or dismissive. That we would argue, I'm not really much of a yeller. First of all, I'm a cap on So I like to keep things really pragmatic even in a fight like I like to be very okay. What is the issue they? He felt like that made me a robot and like I didn't really care enough to a moat daring those fights in a way that was satisfactory to him, and by the time we get to this fall. We are officially at a point. where he doesn't feel like an argument is over until I cry. and. Then then she received the email to end all emails forever. I knew this relationship was not going to work when he emailed me a poem breaking up with me in the poem. The Apollo. It was mostly about the fact that the last time we had gone to Ihop when the check came, he paid for it and I didn't even look at it which you know sorry about that fifteen dollars But then like the end of the poem literally says, and you can go to hell Ashley Ford.

"ford" Discussed on The Big Story
"Just crapping on Doug Ford every chance they got in their attempt to win. Ontario. Wild ride you're right. It was it was basically campaigning in the Greater Toronto. Area Seats. That Doug Ford had one provincially. And slamming the premier government every chance they got and what happened after the Liberals one well, Doug Ford apparently called the prime minister and said, it's water under the bridge. You One I one let's govern for the people of Ontario and Christopher was named deputy prime. Minister, in one of her jobs was to go up horrible relations with a number of provinces. particularly in the West but also with Doug Ford and a relatively not a hostile government necessary. But an necessarily but a government that that didn't really see eye to eye with the Liberals and government liberals had slammed for months and the relationship between a Deputy Prime Minister Freeland and Doug forward. Sort of blossomed the Toronto Star at one point during the middle of the pandemics kind worst moments talked about how they they call each other each other's therapists free Lyndon Ford and I think that raised eyebrows. Among a lot of people who either like one or the other and were surprised that there'd be such a kinship there but. When you when you kind of look beneath the surface at both of their kind of their characters and approach to to governing. Both are hands on both like to pick up the phone, and so it actually is a little bit natural that they struck up a bit of a friendship because they you know they're both Toronto people and they they. They might see the world differently on a lot of levels but they both wanted the same things during the pandemic you talk to more than just the insiders on Ford Team you talk to people who've worked against him and other observers when you take. you heard into account what do you think history will will look at as as Ford's biggest successes during this time and his biggest failures I think actually one of his biggest successes is also one of his government's biggest failures in that the long-term care. Crisis that was. Apparent before the pandemic probably do a lot of people but the horrifying details of the conditions in some of those long term care homes. You know it hit the headlines in in late May and and basically I think everybody who who saw those reports who read those stories where gassed? I, mean yeah. Everybody knows someone or has known someone who's been in one of those homes and. The fact that those conditions were allowed to fester and ultimately cost lives I mean hundreds of lives. Is. A huge mark against the Ford government I mean they they've now the premier has taken responsibility for it. He says it's it's on him. They've struck a an angry of sorts not the inquiry, the opposition wants but that inquiry into exactly what went wrong? But you know they won an election in two, thousand eighteen and in two thousand, twenty, two years later almost these conditions were were the rule not in a lot of places not the exception. So He's got answer for that and a lot of people aren't going to forget those scenes and they're not gonNA forget their loved ones died alone in those homes. But that said, I did talk to somebody who had a real inside view of the testing situation in long term care homes and they said that Ford for several days at when this long term care crisis was really at its Apex Doug Ford was pushing for testing of every resident and. And every healthcare worker every staffer in those homes and the public health officials were pushing back and they said that he faced sustained resistance. He for several days said we have to do it and they said that's not how we fight outbreaks. outbreak management means using a testing expeditiously. Carefully. You you don't WanNa waste tests. I don't want to test people who don't need testing because this particular test is quite unpleasant. If you test. Improperly, you might end up with a lot of false positives or false negatives or whatever. You just have the wrong faulty tests. And he pushed back and he pushed back and eventually they changed the policy and they tested everybody and this particular person with that view of that policy change said that save lives, they could've saved hundreds of lives It's almost impossible to to model out the live saved obviously but but that that decision did allow public health officials to learn more about. The disease including the benefit of testing asymmetric individuals. They weren't doing that before Ford, kind of bullied his way into changing that policy. So it it was something where his particular style of leadership. Paid off and that sort of hands on forty in style made a real difference however, of course on the other side. Of that argument is the crisis existing the first place and the government having to answer for that. So it's it's a bit of a mixed bag, but I would say that long-term care was both his his greatest moment. And his and his worst moment of probably his premiership but definitely, the pandemic do we know when will we have any idea of? If this is real if Ford has genuinely changed minds and one over people who weren't supporters of him or if this is you know leaders tend to see a surge in support. I. In moments of crisis, it's I mean it's definitely the latter to a degree. Every premiere in candidate received a bump, which is which is natural. Of course, in times of crisis there were I think a few milestones that are worth watching. The, it's probably I would say generally agree that the first phase of the pandemic has reached some sort of conclusion you know those series of lockdowns I economic shutdown schools shuttering. Indefinitely for time that's that's winding down everybody kind of got used to that way of life and now a resetting in the summer. And of course, the return to schools non -Tario will be just a enormous moment or series of moments for parents, kids and the government, and I, think there's a pretty genuine risk that the premier if something goes wrong will blame public health officials because he has he has said he's relied on their expertise you thus far and for the first few months as the handling of the pandemic seemed to be positive I mean a lot of death in Ontario for sure like. Twenty seven hundred people died, but but it did seem like the public health measures were having effect and they were they were they were effective enough that the premier didn't feel the need to throw his. His experts under the bus, but if something goes tremendously wrong with the return to schools in one or more areas of this province that could lead to some form of political chaos for sure and what does that mean for his approval rating out? There are a lot of parents in this province Doug. Ford was an unpopular premier before among many of those people. So that's one that's one thing to look for, and then I think the other broader a milestone in it may be harder to pinpoint is just the general return to normalcy, and if there if there is a second wave of this virus in the fall or winter. And if a vaccine doesn't come for a while and there are a series of prolonged shutdowns. It's one of those things.

"Today, we're joined by Susan Ford Welcome. Susan. You are aid author, photo journalist. The youngest of four children to President and Mrs Ford. We are appropriately here at the Betty Ford Center, where you're also on the board of trustees of the Hazel Betty. Ford Foundation. Your mother's legacy. was as a breast cancer survivor and advocate, and as a woman in recovery, and as an advocate for being a woman in recovery. How has the legacy of your mother? Affected your role here at the Betty, Ford? Center. Wow Her shoes were really big to fill your <hes>. So when she stepped down from the board <hes> and I became chairman. <hes>. I. Think it was harder than living in the White House actually because. We mother and I come from two different parts of recovery. She is a patient and the family member. So we have very different opinions of things than and what's important to us <hes>. One of the things that she made me do, which was extremely painful with sit on every city every single committee. And participate on my witness finance. Finance. But I learned it. Sure. And so I feel like she did a great job of preparing me to be chairman. <hes>. So it's it's just we come at it from a different angle in a different perspective family and children's services is extremely important to me because that's how I was affected by this disease. Did you come to the the role of being the chair here at Betty? Ford, did you come to that reluctantly? No because I had been on the board for cheese, probably fifteen years I'm it had just been a long process <hes>. Mother was gracious and allowed me to raise my children before I came on the board <hes> because I was pregnant when the. Betty. Ford. Center open. So. I don't think I came on the board until my youngest was first grade or second grade, and so she gave me some time to get my children raised in at least in school because it required several days travel and all of that in childcare and all the complications that we go through to participate in something like that. Let's go back a little bit and talk about the history of the Betty, Ford Center there's a lot of people who think that when your mother found her own recovery in the late seventy s, she went to the Betty Ford Center. It wasn't even here now was, how did the Betty Ford Center come to be. Johnson from Eisenhower Medical Center <hes> decided that. They wanted to have a treatment and it had been in the plan at Eisenhower for some time, they wanted to have an alcoholic treatment center on the campus. and. So Leonard firestone mother's dear, friend <hes> was also on the board of Eisenhower. And so Johnson Leonard. Kinda. Tag. Team. Durham. and. She was really in a recovery about four years. But she agreed and I and I thought that was a very courageous step to be so early recovery. So she came to all of us children and she said. When I'm long gone. You're the ones that are going to have to live with the fact that your mother had A. Drug and alcohol treatment. Centre, named after you. How do you feel about that? Wow, <hes> and we also we don't care. I mean. It's what a great Lexi you know. She was one of the first to step out and and share her story <hes>. So once we got past that it was just a matter of mother and Leonard Raising the money. To get this place started and of course. Way? Back, then in the early nineteen, Eighty S. The Hazel and foundation played a role also in the birthplace. Can you share just a little bit about that? Well, mother spent quite a bit a time when to Hazelton, because Hazelton had done it. So well, they were probably the leaders in the in the sense that they had been around the longest <hes>. And it was successful <hes>. There's lots of treatment centers that haven't been successful. Some other went back and spent probably close to a week there visiting with counselors visiting with a staff talking, how do you do this? What did you do? Right? What did you do on? Why? What makes Hazelton successful because we basically wanted to copy what they had done, but in a different location sure who would have ever imagined decades later. The two organizations would come together and I WANNA to come back to that in just a minute. But First Susan I want to address an issue that. Always bothers me and then set the the Betty Ford. Center is seen as a place for. The rich and famous for the exclusive for those who can pay out of pocket. But that's not at all what's happening here is no and less than one percent of the patients here are what we would think of as celebrities. Yes. We've had some celebrities, but so was Hazelton I mean. So as other places <hes> everybody needs treatment, it doesn't matter what you do that determines you need treatment. So, and they don't get treated any different than. My Mother didn't get treated any different Long Beach. The women, she shared a room with. So <hes>, it's the same.

"And with that, it is time to roll right back into this interview with tiffany stone, Talking Ford Broncos and off roading all right rolling into things. We were just getting kind of role in talking about the Bronco. Obviously some of the packaging on it. I know stone and mention bringing back some of the throwback colors, and honestly one thing I can appreciate about the Bronco and we're going to bridge the gap into talking jeep and kind of that teaser jeep girl. We're GONNA talk about that teaser. Jeep Kinda throughout their because I think it's GonNa rat, and we're gonNA kind of offroad wars, which I think is even better, but I'm the packaging like they've got the base model all the way up into the luxury mall crawler type of thing, but they've got some offered packaging. I kind of you know they it. A lot in a lottery guards some of the G. packaging with this with this Bronco tiff I mean you know the badlands obviously is for the enthusiasts? It's kind of like a Jeep Rubicon, but they've got they've got. What is the outer banks equivalent like a Sahara? That's more of A. Luxury type field. They've got the wild. Wild tracks I think that is like full-on like I. Don't know, but it seems like the packaging on this I looked at it and I'm like they little homage to jeep I feel like the packing is very similar with the way they're approaching this thing. No I think so as well and I don't know if you saw and I'm not sure if it's specifically a real meam or different, and it's Kinda the dig too deep owners, but they they said Bronco just like a jeep, but for men and I really think it's just like a mean that's out there like obviously I don't think Ford is using that as a tagline or if they are that kind of money I, don't know but I think you know that's kind of where people are going to see because there's more females you know I myself in the market. Market as well and it's awesome. Deceive women will and do all that you know one of the great ones out there you know Holly Fowler who she drives mischief maker, and she such great inspiration, and even people like fair price out there doing different things you know I saw she was doing the stunts, actually four the Bronco commercials and different things like that, so she got her hands on that well before anybody else, and it's kind of cool to see where it's going to be good I think that it's going to be a market for everybody in the off road. Market has starting to grow where there is no, you know male female. It's kind of bridge, the gap and everybody and anybody who wants to go out and love. The outdoors are getting hands on these types of vehicles. I agree with you, you know and I think. Something like this like you said there's so many female soon. The offroad jeep community and I feel like in the last couple of years. I mean people such as yourself a really help bridge that gap, and and you know I think UTV's have been a big part of it to getting women out wheeling, and and things like that and I actually you know. The raptors been a big Gosh. I know as many female rapper owners I. Do Mail, you know, and and it's funny. There's memes going around like that. 'CAUSE I. You know obviously I. Don't think there's a lot of basis in it i. just I think it's Rad that that women have really embraced the offer a community and and come in and. And like you said You mentioned people like Sarah Price. Kristen matlock is a good friend of ours. I mean they've come in in a lottery. Guards are actually better than the mid sometimes in competition you know. It's been been Kinda. Rad Jessi combs. We got a mention her. She's been phenomenal Ambassador you know what I mean for for offroad for women to know. Unfortunately, we lost her last year, but Yeah I don't know if I think. Those means actually take him as a positive because I feel like it's like people actually acknowledging that women are a big part of offering culture now. No and I agree like I even talked to Bailey. I like just call her Bailey sins Brendan Simms girlfriend and she was like I'm so excited. I want one you know, and it's so cool to see that. Women are excited about these types of vehicles, and they want to grab them. You know granted She's always out in Utd. With Brandon and everything, but it's cool to see that women are just as excited as men for something like this to come out. No, I completely agree when there was a mean, you share actually shared it to my facebook group, but I thought was funny as Hell it was an FDA blue F J cruiser and a blue jeep wrangler was a jeep wrangler, and they gave birth to the Blue Bronco Something happens and then like nine months later. This happens or so I can't remember, but it was funny as Hell So. It's a blue with so back in the day when Toyota had the FDA cruiser, limited edition ones the ones with the white top, so it's a blue and white top FDA crews are on the left and says we can't tell about last night, and then on the right is a blue with the white talk, which is chief I e! that's where mischief maker comes for Holly, and it says I know it would hunt forever, and then down below is a picture of the Ford Bronco with the white top that says dot dot dot nine months later, so it just kind of saying. People are thinking that they took up. Jay Cruiser and the wrangler combine them, and that's what the Bronco is. Good stuff and I know one thing we haven't talked about. We're talking about obviously you know. These broke the one thing that I actually think schools. They've got the two in the four door kind of off road. Capable broncos actually launched they call it the Bronco Sport, which comes first it comes out before the two and four door Bronco, but it's actually kind of like a Range Rover and obviously land Scott. You know they've got some crazy offer tech and it's like four, not only waiting to accompany into competition with jeep. We're GonNa Competition Land Rover, which is funny, because Ford actually owned Land Rover one point in time but I find it funny. It's like four now we're. We're going to go after all the offered market, not only jeep, but we're going to have to Range Rover anybody that can compete with us, we're. We're throwing something down with thrown down the gauntlet. I'm looking at it and going missing. It's a legit range over competitor in that sport to. Know exactly and the crazy thing is I'm looking at it right now so obviously. It's available late twenty twenty s a twenty one model. They're only making two thousand of these. And you can get that cool cyber orange at no additional or oh, sorry lied extra cost. Option, like no additional. That's awesome. No, that's that's crazy. Though just to think about what they're like. I don't know it's cool to see car. Manufacturers have a little fun and have a little play with each other like we were talking about earlier. How you know wrangler or I'm sorry. G. dropped a little teaser of the three ninety two concept. You know I've actually you know driven a modified six four and that was to like right studios Kevin and Brittany Williams. And it's Kinda cool, but now with jeep there are four different engine options that are available. You have the eight two liter turbo. Then you're going to have a three liter ECODIESEL. Then you have a three point. Six Liter v six, which I have, and now you're going to have three ninety two six six.

"And, then you've got jemson thinking. We got less than in the guy. I think it's cool. Because sets the stage you know. The the next manufacturers got one up and let's see what they got. You know, so it It improves the. Settling for the consumer at the end of the day. So I'M GONNA. Do without giving the game ago. We're GONNA DO We're going to be doing defender versus. Ranga, and former on animals, Land Cruiser as well. And, then there's going to be the big elephant in the room time we can kind of go back and. Do it again with the with wrong cowboys. Signing year. Yeah it's going to be. It's interesting for sure, and you're right to to to your point about GM. They don't really have. Much of an offroad competitor like on some level, there's a version of Colorado the the truck. That is is planning that space, but. Also Ford's. It was an announcement or just room, or whatever, but We touched on a little bit last week about Ford also. Possibly bringing ranger raptor to the United States now it wasn't available. Here wasn't planning on being available, but now they're saying possibly in a year it could be available. And the reason why that speculation was interesting is because of all the different variations of Bronco. I believe there's some shared technology or the platform or chassis or something could be with ranger, and now they're saying well, if Ranger Raptors this great kind of high speed. Off Road. Truck like the full size. Raptor is what about? In a year or two from now a Bronco Raptor or whatever they're going to call you know some sort of. High speed version narrative got it. Yeah I think they'll be I. think the before Wednesday's. We will be. For this. Take place when she comes out with the wrangler. Because ultimately. The money they WANNA. Give the money away to little the aftermarket. In, Neda, they need a Mo-. Power equivalent, because as we all know that something's imagine stuff. There was a time I spoke to Ford many years ago and there was a time where. Somebody was a little hesitant with the aftermarket in the Ford World. They were saying hey. You, buy a Mustang or an F. One fifty, and and you buy it. In the variations that they offer and that's it. And then. And Ford performance catalog the parts catalog. Always around always did well, but didn't feel like it was getting quite the support that could have. Gotten from the brand, and then there was a little bit of change in an staffing over there and somebody else came into Mustang and Ford performance and said. Hey! We're in the business of of selling cars on the Mustang side, so if if people wanNA personalized that our car and that helps us sell cars. Then we're all for it so now we're going to support that initiative and the ended up seeing a lot more parts, available and cool stuff being developed in the Ford Performance Parts Catalog. And now they're sort of embracing two sides of it for performances going. Yes, WE WANNA make a bunch of parts and make it available like Broncos, dealer, assessories, accessories, and things like that. And the catalog the aftermarket Cadillac, but now they're saying, but hey, if you don't buy four performance parts, you want to go by Magda flow exhaust HR wheels. You still got by the put it on, and if long that's a Ford. It's all part of the the game right? All of these car manufacturers should should. Pay attention to that as well listen I know there's some car manufacturers that owns several brands, and they don't like it when one brand puts peanut butter, and the other brands chocolate and you know what I'm saying like. They're all owned by the same company, but. But They don't want. They don't Wanna fix their peanut butter and chocolate together makes up the delicious and sweet and. And I don't I'm not quite making out so easy. Yeah, it's just like. Listen even in your world of testing. Does does. because. We're on the topic of Ford and Dodge I just don't see a lot of comparisons of of jeep track hawk versus. A hell cat. Charger because I don't think they want those to be. Drag raced in the same video right because they're. They're trying to position themselves differently. Weird dynamic of very very much is they tell you what it's. No, it's. It's not on display any better than that same. I think I have it was? Yeah I have a word that I think talks. Which is liability. You know they it is about. If we have then you have to under the warranty. I actually showed up. I mentioned before, but before I moved to Edmonds I showed a documentary on the development of flood. Spent three years with the development you went. Will all over the world the? States threat several times Europe. And it was it was the frosted IB. Products project it from the other side of the spectrum with basically is kind of like they. They always call themselves a candidate. Books Ration-. They're allowed to break a few morals by shortcuts. They spillers costs still have to come to standards and sometimes things like arrests, five hundred as you can be a little bit fast and loose with the really small number stuff. But a Mike Day Focus Rysley for selling I. think Thirty Thousand Units Globally. They got to a certain conditions, and then he saw offering aftermarket. `oughts. They do, too. So you can't just you know I? It's no secret delay. In the story. They have problems with the RS engine when they tried to the. On! She tries to some some pulse and supply issues, but it was. And they fixed it in the end. In view were starting to really turn the power than the boost, not without doing Olot Gerbil to give you an example fold amidst the focus rs They trash twenty seven vehicles. In order to destroy twenty seven vehicles in order to deal with crash testing. It's it's. from this. Yeah, it's very expensive. If you're going to build a democracy, Paul Mate these rights Terranova Legisla legislative stuff as we have, it's a tough thing to do. Sometimes we understand the ever Mahal, time and to. Why can't you just give us a big Ajayi, but? It Oh. It's a big world out there. It's interesting when you when you start to break down on the cost of developing a vehicle I had a conversation with. With, fisker automotive years ago in the fisker Karma Electric vehicle came out and to. They ran into really bad issues with a one-two-three, the battery supplier kind of full of the company, and now we have Karma than we have fisker, we to companies as a result, but when that car came out. I remember going to. Interviewing them at like Ellie Auto, show or something, and I'm looking at this gorgeous four door sedan, and it's got sort of this use solar panel kind of thing going up on the roof and we're walking through and I said hey just had a curiosity. Is it available with a sunroof? and. They said well no. And I was like that seems odd for a high end car, and they said look, they said. For us to develop the SUNROOF, we'd have to re crash. All the cars versions of it with the SUNROOF. It's five million dollars minimum, so the RND calls is at least five million dollars just in approvals and government testing, crashing to do the sun roof, and for them to have a sunroof and a non sunroof version would be expensive and they're like. How many sunroofs are we going to sell to justify that cost on a brand new car company? That's just getting out the gate with their first car, and so they made a decision that are like no sunroof Mike Okay I'm. A smart financial, decision. Ultimately not I guess because the company's gone but. But but that's what we're talking about is like soon as you do something that actually brings up. The jeep is well. Let me hit this ad and then I want to talk about the jeep with the three ninety two Hemi because. There are some thoughts around crash, testing and wide..

"Ever looked in a magazine or on a pinterest board and said to yourself? You know what aesthetic I love white on white on White. Well our guest today basically invented that. You're welcome from Pittsburgh. She made a name for herself when she took a nineteen o seven schoolhouse in her hometown and restored it to be the coolest house. Ever her work has been featured in Arc Digest Country Living Domino Elle Decor Martha Stewart. Better homes and gardens redbook might gain refinery twenty nine and the New York Times and like a whole bunch of other but we don't have all day when she's not blowing our minds on her instagram. She's also a TV star along with her brother and contractor Steve Ford of restored by the fords on HDTV which follows the siblings as they turned some of Pittsburgh's most dated buildings into magazine worthy homes. She's also an author a style maven her brother's hot and I've never seen Becca so excited for a guest on lady gang in our entire history. She wasn't excited about anyone we've brought to her in the past five years except Lianne Ford whatever happens. Do not cancel Leeann Ford. We must have her so welcome to the show. Leeann Ford what an intro. We're here at eight. Am for the listener. We need to make it do and I said I could screen shot this like. Do not cancel Leeann forest. Get Work and we'll take you for making it. I'm happy to see you could. Do you want to just open by saying what? Why do you have such a crush on this woman? Okay well first of all. We're making eye contact. It started when there was this bedroom that everybody was posting on Instagram. All these designers like inside Info. And it's this all white bedroom with white brick white dude like very very very minimalist and gold. I think it's like a gold Moma Gosh Mirror and which one it is my bedroom. Yes and so for years I will. Oh it's I'm there all white annoying. She's like other bedroom. Okay it's in Huntington okay so I would see this bedroom and every designer that would posted. I'd be like it's the person so then I would be because I wanted to find the person responsible not appreciating it so all these designers were posting posting posting. But I couldn't find the source will one day. I'm sitting on my on my couch. I love HGTV. But I'm very picky about what I watch on him and so I was like finally I was watching rock the block. Yeah because I was like. Let's check this out. And I realized that you're the woman responsible for furthest bedroom that I've been seeing for years and years and years. How do they show? It didn't show it but then I went on the deepest. I've ever the deepest Leeann for Diet third lie and I was like this is the woman and then along with that bedroom. There's like two hundred other pictures of yes bedrooms living rooms and just places that you just WanNa live in. It's your you have an eye. That is unreal unparalleled to anybody else. That's doing this. It's insane but like how do you do this? I'm so glad I'm here. Yeah I guess the question is is that if there's no pinterest board to inspire you how do you come up with like be the first of anything you know? I don't worry about being the first. I think it's I think if you do that kind of you're chasing trends you're already behind you. Kinda just have to mind your own business and I would say I always like the white on white thing because it's timeless so yeah I mean that that room you're talking about is eight years ago you know and my schoolhouse is still cool. And it was over ten years ago and it's like Just super simple. But it's all about warmth and texture their stuff so you can't. It's not boring right. Everyone thinks white on white's boring when they hear it and then they see like never mind. It's so true and I like that. It's a thing now that you're saying you know people stole it. I say good like the more people that have pretty homes the better. Well I have to say I'm looking for a new house right now and so I have my pinterest boards that I'm looking for and I'm picking the style and it's been few and far between of what I'm exactly looking for it until I found you now. I feel seen because everything you do. I'm like this is what looking free creating what to convince you to join the Lady Gang. That's fine remain. You can take my place all the girls out there who are tagging the keeping and screen shotting all of your designs like. How do you attempt to recreate what you do? Because you can't be a million with the normal budget. Yeah Yeah Okay I like that question. Which is honestly why have loved doing product stuff so right yeah I just last week. A line came out. I Did Leon Ford for crate and Barrel. Which is which is so excited to get up there and you can't afford anything just got a candle issues are really affordable and so sheikh. Thank you I loved it. Doing that was such a joy. Oh my gosh. It was so fun and then seeing it being both sitting these chairs that kind of came out of my brain and it's nothing like Crazy it's just evolution of materials like I use really classic materials would simple would unstained Did black kind of like a little Wabi Sabi Japanese black would and then caning and simple stuff but in cool shapes right like a little bit Italian a little bit Mediterranean a little bit disco like that is really a meshing if you kinda look at it and dig into it but anyway. That's why I love doing that because now you can go get it. Go get it like I have a friend in San Francisco who I did her house. Years ago and She's like they had another baby and they need to do stuff. I just sent her links. Like just get this you now and that was pretty fun to be able to go on one website and get a bunch of stuff but a normal client for you. Yeah I mean. I'm sure at this point. You're having to turn a lot of people down. Yeah the Jennifer Lopez of the world are calling you and being like halons another woman. How dare she she missed out? Her taste is elevated. I honestly on it is. We're not sure but anyway. We Love Jennifer. She made an error one air this year and here.

Ooh That's quite good and on seem thank you. I didn't even know you knew about this one. I know what I've learned from. Vh1's I love the seventies.

Hobbs I'm a reporter for the Huffington Post and you can support us at Patriotair Dot com slash wrong about and things are feeling tight right now. And you're already supporting us there. You can unsupported us. Yes because this is an interesting time when you were a kid in the nineties over like I wish I could live in an interesting time and now do you want to go back and talk to that kid and be like listen. The boy meets world. Cast is going on the second of all no. You don't talk about another interesting time today. Which is the nineteen seventies. Yes and it's beautiful. Exploding automobiles what you remember about the exploding Ford Pinto. I just know that they exploded. This was a tactic of great murder. Yes or people. I don't know if people found it funny at the time but I remember it being discussed as a funny thing I encountered about it in two thousand yes. I think I was introduced to this by a joke. To there's a joke in Wayne's world or Wayne's world to where a car is following them and they slowdown in car runs into them like barely a tableau yeah and then the Pinto explodes. I don't know it's interesting because problems in American car manufacturer are sexual sore spot. Her Americans think especially during that period and I wonder if you like exploding. Pinto seemed funny at the time because it was like a gallows humor extreme version of maybe other problems that were happening and it also we will get into this more but also goes back to the way that we don't really take car accidents seriously as tragedies to rain to think of them as it's the fault of the people who are in the accident or something that we don't think of forty thousand auto accident deaths every year as a public health crisis the way that we do with a gun deaths and even with gun deaths were not doing great at the serious taking. Yeah but it's also I mean this was also the largest auto recall ever at the time. It was actually one of the biggest news stories of the late. Nineteen seventies was the way that this car had been designed to be really really easy to explode. But I've been looking forward to this episode because it's kind of a throwback to twenty eighteen. Ywca when we first started out when we were young and dewey and every wasn't about a woman's life being slowly destroyed. I know and back when our episodes were like short and they were like simple. This episode also has debunking then a debunking of the debunking which is very throwback for us. Oh Yeah you love doing that. Yes yeah I feel like do you remember in the ninety s when Gwyneth paltrow was doing some probably atrocious screwball comedy and they asked her why she was doing this like lightweight role and she said no accents? No corsets no crying this kind of version of that that like. I only read one book for this episode at my notes are like only fifty one pages long. This is not going to be like a two hour. Long episodes. It's like a little cute. Myth Debunk Debunk Outta here. Kind of episodes a cute little duckling of an episode. Yes so this is you Gwyneth. Paltrow taking a break from making authentic oven roasted vegan. Pizza just like. Have your one cigarette of the week and let loose this is. This is going to be easy and fun in Quarantine Company. This is what we're going for. Yes we'll get back to the human horror in the next couple of weeks. I don't worry because I work on this show. So it's so. We begin with the context of the auto industry in the late. One Thousand Nine Hundred Sixty S. I love what you're like. This is going to be a fun episode brain into like the auto industry amid sanctuary. America started its loom like decline. Well I mean I also think we're we're starting with carnage but not the kind of carnage that we're used to on this show. I mean basically the context for the Ford Pinto is that driving was extremely dangerous in the late nineteen seventies. One thing that we've discovered on this show is we've talked about how society had to discover the concept of child abuse and society had to discover the concept of domestic abuse. Like hey these things happen in their bed and like cyclically again and again yeah. It's exactly the same thing with car safety. So the idea that cars can kill you and the idea that auto crashes are like controllable by people and their responsibility of large corporations is not a natural idea. There was about four decades. There were basically the car. Companies successfully argued that they weren't responsible for car. Crashes the thing is we are supposed to keep the car driving like if the hubcap falls off when you're driving that's our problem but if you crash the car into a tree that's you so there's no reason for seatbelts. There's no reason for us to design cars to save you so it's very amid sanctuary. American personal responsibility. You're on your own now Jack. You bought it totally. And so the concept that car crashes should be reduced and can be reduced was a completely new concept and essentially. Didn't exist before. Ralph Nader wrote unsafe at any speed. And when was that nineteen sixty five? Okay so just before the. Pinto starts getting designed in nineteen sixty seven. We have silent spring and we have unsafe at any speed. Both of which are books that are basically saying like corporations are bad and a lot of people don't know that at the time the idea of sort of environmental risks and structural risks was something that people had to sort of have their hands held and taught very slowly. Can you talk about the kind of post war to nuclear a view of corporate and ovation in America? I mean I think it's so long ago that we can't fathom this. There was a time when corporations were seen as essentially benign. I mean one thing. That's really interesting about the about unsafe at any speed and about this sort of growing realization. That auto safety is a thing is the extent to which people didn't know that carmakers had control over this stuff. Har- crashes were seen as these sort of act of God personal responsibility. There's nothing anybody can do. But what starts coming out in? Nineteen sixty s is more and more of like wait a minute. These companies are acting really irresponsibly and they're selling products that are making more likely to die. And so the big thing in the auto industry at the time was of course planned obsolescence. Right that it's not than they make a car. And then they hit rate on it every year gets a little bit safer a little bit safer a little bit better. They're basically every three years they're just completely starting over there. Like let's add fins or like. Let's add a wooden steering wheel and safety is not playing into this. They're just adding all these weird bells and whistles and so one thing that the carmakers start doing is there's these dashboards that look cool. They're like they had like a shelf design with like this beat Amish way in it and they're really cool looking but this shelf design ends up decapitating people when they get no. Oh is it lake at neck level vehicle? Oh and another thing was the steering column used to just like pay. Oh people because the car makers were like well don't crash into stuff. If you don't want a big metal rod through your chest this is also linked. I I think I also learned this on. Vh One that in the seventies lawn darts were a popular toy in cold was at elect kits through dark city. Exactly Yeah like. Do you really think that people are going to not crash into stuff like ever. Is that your plan? Well this is. What's really interesting? So there's old because people try and suing the car companies over this old federal court decisions where the judges basically side with the car companies. So this is a quote from one of the judges in nineteen sixty six. The intended purpose of an automobile does not include its participation in collisions with other objects the defendant also knows that it's automobiles may be driven into bodies of water but it is not suggested that the defendant has a duty to equip them with pontoons which is like. I. This is a classic to me. Legal Argument Food Group of Lake. Yeah I'm going to compare this quite reasonable request to this other thing. That's allegedly a corollary. But really is like ludicrous and exaggurated in any reasonable person would be like well of course not and like that. That sort of false equivalences knew he. I think he sees that a lot and bad faith. Arguments in the court system to that judges often fall for these things that are very principled but in reality cars are not driving into the water a lot but they are crashing into each other a lot at the time fifty thousand people a year were dying in car accidents and the population of the US was thirty percent smaller than it is. Now so you were about twice as likely back then to die in a car crash as you are now This is a quote from an article that the history of auto safety that all linked to in the show notes. A culture of low expectations concerning auto safety was cultivated by the industry. The US people generally did not expect to survive serious accidents and accept her safety researchers they were not cognizant of the degree to which crash worthiness could be designed into cars. So it's basically just like well if I get a car crash I'm going to die. There's nothing like Ford and GM and Chrysler can actually do about it. Yeah it's amazing because even now I think of car companies as shirking responsibility at every turn but there are certain number of cultural norms that they've had to accept like I assume in my and I have assumed for my whole life as a car driving individual that the vehicle that I'm getting into and trying to move around a city is going to have been designed based on the assumption that it might crash into something at some point and that that's part of its life also that it has pontoons the period. So now we get to the design of the Ford Pinto. Let me send you a photo of this carring on. Pinto has a bearing current because it does not make me. Think I of a horse that makes me think of bean. We have a very spirited argument about which decade loves beans more. Aren't you yeah? It's cute right? Yeah I would drive that it is. I WANNA say a hatchback. It's tomato Red Blinking. Malian typewriter and it looks like you could have a car chase in like it. Looks like it will be fun to drive yet. Looks like it handles well. It looks like I'm imagining driving it. Data freeway with all these like boxy like buicks and Oldsmobiles i Mike zipping around between them. Because I'm a I'm on my way to a baby sitting emergency or I'm like I'm Charlie's angel pretending to be a babysitter like that's the energy of this car and so I just another one where Pinto in a field with horse next to it which is very literal. Yeah this is their ad where they're like no no. Don't think of the being. The the context of this car is that you can't really see this from the photo but it's very small. It's considered a subcompact really so it's like European style and so basically what's happening in the auto industry at the time is before the rise of the Japanese car companies. The American auto industry was basically a three-part monopoly. It had consolidated to the point where there are three companies according to David Halberstam the reckoning which I highly recommend. They're basically. There was kind of nominally competition between the car companies but not really like they all knew each other they were all in Detroit one year. Ford sells more cars one year. Gm sells more cars but like they have these product categories. Everyone sort of has their marketing stuff in place. It's not really a competitive industry. And it's only in the late nineteen sixties when Honda and Toyota and Nissan show up with better cars. They're very cheap. They drive well. They're more reliable and all the sudden. There's real competition and the big. Three automakers get scared. Oh because in Japan it's a cultural norm to not let drivers be killed by steering columns including people are into it for some and so in the late nineteen sixties Lee IACOCCA. Who's the head of Ford at the time? Basically goes to his engineers and says we need a car that competes with the VW beetle and the Toyota Corolla and all these little small cheap cars like the hip. Young kids are driving these days and so he basically gives them the order that no matter what the car has to be at the most two thousand pounds it has to be light and it has to cost less than two thousand dollars and what's two thousand dollars in today's money that's eight thousand bucks okay. Which is actually a good deal for a brand new car. That's a car of the people. Yes and so basically his marching orders are you need to get this car to market as fast as possible. So at the time the average car took about forty three months to design and build and whatever and get everything ready for the Pinto. They did it in twenty five months they just like rammed this thing through production. Just get it onto the market. Get it under this price. Yeah they did that with the too. I mean those have all been sent back to the nineteen fifties now and so one of the decisions that they make in this rush to get the car out. The door is most cars at the time. Had The gas tank above the rear axle. So basically if you're sitting in the backseat of a car you're essentially sitting over the gas tank. That's where it is in most cars and the Nice thing about that is..

"Hi Glen and in our force chair today is belong Karachi below reports and produces cultural coverage for NPR halo. Everyone Wonderful to have you back. Room Broom So Stephen. I'm going to go to you first since you are the person that I associate associate with fast cars. That's not true. What did you think afford me? Ferrari you know we recently on the show talked about the movie. Nineteen seventeen and Glen. I think in particular described it as the ultimate dad movie. This is ultimate daddy movie. I did not realize I don't think of myself necessarily as the Dad movie type hypoc Dad Ford. V Ferrari proved that I am in fact that guy. This is some kind of old fashioned. CGI free cars zooming around in kind of movie making. It's fun. It's a sports movie. I mean I don't do. I think it breaks any kind of mold. I do not think it does do. I think it's effective active at capturing like the big race the big clash of personalities. All that stuff. I I think to use a phrase we sometimes use on the show this movie movies on rails but I think it's very effective for what it is. I think James Mangled the director. I think is a very skilled technician. You're in good hands throughout this thing. I don't I don't think it's amazing but I enjoyed it enormously. I do want to say in fairness if you're out there and you're thinking I like Ford before I like car movies but I'm not a dad or if you are now or thinking I did not like this movie. We are speaking generally. But I think it's fair to say it fits into a kind of a John Laura of movies that has adad movie feel to it in that it's very invested in kind of traditional American masculinity. Yeah that makes sense boil. Would you think this movie. I loved this movie actually and I saw at Toronto at the Film Festival a few months ago and I took my dad to see it and when it came out. It's the perfect and my ten year old nephew who also loved it Exactly so all of us were there in What I liked about it a lot and I don't want to? I think it's very easy to use a lot of bad driving puns in criticism of this film. So I'm not going to go there but I did feel like it knew how to slow down as a film which I liked the most about it. Is that in fact while it has has these large kind of racing sequences and all the room rooms that we've talked about. It has quite a lot of silence in it as a film as well and I think it has moments of being reflective and thoughtful and and the two central characters played by Christian. Bale and Matt Damon are have a really beautiful friendship. And and I think that for me really came through and I when I think of sports films in high I school classes when you have to be forced to watch them to be inspired or something by your gym teacher or something like they always ended with that great big game or or some kind of showdown. Oh down and I felt like in this film. It actually doesn't conclude in that way it has other ways of bringing you into these. These characters lives into the kind of human side of this of this film which I was not expecting from movie called Ford versus for which I think is the most poetic title and I think in a way Mrs some of the poetry of the film and Two who on the mechanical knows. Well that's true and I think you know if you're not familiar with what happened in this real life situation in nineteen sixty six you know. Ferrari very had been kind of more of a racing type of car and Ford was not and so they had had some business dealings and potentially some business alignment they were GonNa make a deal deal. And then they didn't and Henry Ford the second as we said plucky upstart that he was Wanted to essentially beat Ferrari at racing because he was mad. Add about kind of the way or or at least in part because he was mad. So goes the legend so he gets this character Carroll Shelby played by Matt Damon. WHO's a an American auto auto designer kind of guy to work with Ken? Miles played by Christian. Bale who's a British driver and kind of innovator of building cars they talk about how he's got a kind of a car that he put together himself that he's able to drive to great success and so and so these guys have a little bit of the odd couple friendship tip. They have a little bit of the trying to make the big company except are great ideas and of course. There's a lot of kind of the inherent danger and suspense of have racing. Glenn talked me about Ford. V Ferrari will this is essentially a historical drama but it's also essentially a bio pic right. And it's the kind of bio pic that I like because it's takes a very thin slice of the person's life instead of dramatizes that so I'm GonNa ask the subject of another oscar-nominated bio pic of the season To speak to my my my feelings about this film so ladies and gentlemen from the nineteen forty nine film in the good old summertime. Welcome to the stage. Miss Judy.

"From the trailer Ford v Ferrari and that is the title of the movie. It it just Ford. v Ferrari not versus just the Batman. V Superman Yup Yup and we all know how that turned out to be the plummeted from a plus from an the American car designer Carroll Shelby and driver Ken Miles Battle. Corporate interference the laws of physics and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary race car for Ford and Challenge Ferrari at the twenty four hour of twenty four hours of Lama in nineteen. Sixty six. All right your hardware. You and I are Big James Mangled fans and I remember him talking about. I think I was listening to his like interview. for the QA podcasts where he's talking about Logan and and he was referring to like this movie as like a movie. That is generally very difficult to get made. You know it's not based on anything. there's not much Action or fighting in it. It's not like a genre movie. Just strain to Michael Man was trying to tell the story to the competing waste. Approach it as well just a good old drama with to really talented actors at the top of their game. So I was really like for this. I assume you were as well. What did you think of Ford Ford? V Ferrari I absolutely adored it I don't think I've Seen James Mangold movie that I don't like in some way And this feels like him just working. Yeah at the top of his craft. Like yeah this is a movie about you know Two guys really trying to win very grueling race the twenty four hours commands And it's it's easy to look at this movie and just see it as like. Oh this is just like pure dad movie. This is just like a testosterone on filled bro. Fast where guys are talking about cars when men were tough been like they had great leathery faces and you know they did tough jobs they got dirty. They're always dirty after working in the garage. Things things were different back then. And I've seen some reviews say that and I didn't get that impression at all from this week It's definitely a brewery Phil Right. This is a movie. The central relationship is Matt Damon and Christian Bale's characters who have sort of like a work. Mark wife relationship basically. It's a work spouse relationship where they are just so close to each other working closely they go through highs and lows. They can hate each other while at the same time professing like having a deep love and respect for each other as well and I think that relationship kind of underpins this entire film this is also a movie about it's You know creative individual visionaries trying to exist under a crushing corporate system AOL Scott made a good point where you know there. There's clearly a parallel towards making movies towards making movies As director and using other people's money to make these he's million things and have a individualistic stamp. Yeah be creatively treated yourself while. Also you know being beholden to corporation. There's a lot going on here. I like how this movie juggles. All that and I don't think this may be tough to sell either right. You've got big stars but you also have like cars Carson. Movies cars just looks so great on screen There's a visceral feeling to it. And there's a ton of racing in this movie I think they're shot and edited really. Well I saw it in an Imax screen here in New York and the sound design was fantastic like the feeling of cars and tires squealing rubber and the roar of the engines dull very visceral and I think Mangold handled that all pretty well too but yeah for me. The real key to this is that you know this is a story about guys trying to achieve a vision In a way. Hey that you know at any creative you think of like The way steve jobs and Johnny. I've worked together to design things at apple and kind of how things changed. Maybe a little after Steve Jobs passed away This movie explores a lot around that I wish I wish there wasn't a stereotypical like put upon wife. I was she had a little more to do. But beyond that like this movie I adored it completely. Jeff Cannata your thoughts on Ford V. Ferrari I guess you could say my thoughts about four Ferrari. Our best summed up in the form of Olympic if the title so is what brought you on board no Ferrari is largely ignored and a lack of details is the reason it fails to even be Ford versus Ford. Wow how nice well then jeff thank you tell us what you mean by that Jeff. This movie is fine. It's fine I like the I think the actors are excellent. It's ordinary to see to see Christian. Bale literally transform his body into more. Like what this actual human being looked like. Somehow he did his face to be thinner and and longer than it usually is more leathery like. There's a great and sunburnt leather to his face. I really enjoy the real guy. Looked like that. Yeah Yeah I'm just GonNa be Matt Damon if that's but I mean it's extraordinary just like Z.. He does that. You didn't have to do that. Christian Bale. You didn't have to do that. It's fine but it's cool. That is normal face. I think it's normal face just with a bit of a Tan. Would it's longer and thinner and you're looking like he's posture is yeah yeah in a weird way cheekbones or a little higher yeah it. It's as transformative as as he ever is. I mean it's it's it's I was watching this movie. I'm like that dude played Batman like that. This character couldn't be drives a cool car to but couldn't be farther. Bamako Batman. I mean vice came out last year. He was Dick Dick Cheney a year. That's true it's so true it's crazy crazy crazy unhealthy wrong but cool. I guess anyway but he did say he did say his days of weight loss and gain are done he says like I can't keep doing wing. It really kept my mortality staring me in the face he said I think as Dr was like you had one more to do and you wasted on chaining so good luck with that. Anyway he and Damon are both very charming in this movie and they're always fun to watch onscreen but I just. I don't understand why this movie is. It doesn't feel like it answers any particularly interesting questions for me. I doesn't give me enough of an insight into how this happened or why this happened. It is a race where four people drive for twenty four hours this movie. You'd think there was one dude who did everything everything I it completely ignored the other three people. I mean it mentions that there are other people but I don't even think casts them like they don't exist in this world the details of building the car feel vague and sort of just I mean it really is. It's trying to be about the people and it's trying trying to convince you that if it wasn't for this particular driver then they would never have been able to do it. Accept the fact that they did it three more times. Ah Without Him and he also he also designed the car basically like hell to release design. He Co design the car. I'll take anything away from the dudes in the Racing Hall of fame is a major figure. It's just I didn't feel like the movie gave me any insight in ultimately it's a movie about a little Guy Ferrari who cares a lot about doing something beautifully and hand making things I mean. What is usually the protagonist tagged movie? This self made artist. Enzo Ferrari who wants to create something beautiful and immaculate an actually succeed that it this movie is about that dude. Going up someone who's just like all throw money at it. We'll keep throwing throwing money at it until you can't have all the money. Let's just by a win. It's not a good guy. Ford is not a good company here her either. I think I think you're completely right. Jeff like there. We could talk more about this than spoilers but Ferrari there is so much like that he they are the little guy it is sort of. Like if you made something talking about Disney trying to fight The criterion channel or something right like this artisan experience versus the content Monolithic Disney. I see what you're saying but it's and the title is Ford Versus Ferrari and you go. Oh my gosh. Yeah Ferrari is like is is synonymous with speed. And how could they ever do it. It's it's like what's the answer. They just spent more money. They just spent way more money. That's really the answer to this question. And I don't know I I would've I would've liked this movie to actually kind of give me more insight into this was more like a free solo in understanding the rigor and commitment it takes to do these endurance races the the precision and the I mean there's so little of that so much of that is just completely ignored. And you you know you talk a little bit of Inter about the wife character. Oh my gosh talk about failing. The Bechtel test will she is does not exist except to get sodas for her man It is it's a it's a it's a bit. She's the only female character in the whole movie. And Yeah Yeah you know. It's not great. It's not great. This is a man's man's movie as they as they say I will say the Jeff like there is there so this movie's two and a half hours long and it it didn't. It didn't quite feel like that to me because your internal intrigue at Ford like I guys I write about companies. I care a lot about corporate intrigue and things like that this stuff going going on in this like the whole idea is that yeah four. It spent more money but also Ford was kind of forced to because this is basically a Dick Measuring contest between you know Henry Ford the second and Enzo Ferrari in a way because Ferrari called their cars ugly And said Ford was not was just is the second and he's not the original Henry Ford like I actually like third. If I'm not mistaken. Yeah he every for the second but he's the grand third. Yes Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah but yeah that is that shows like how much innovation in this world you comes about. Just because of a rich guy felt offended or like he had an I dea The idea that you know Ford is a major company that builds these assembly line products. I basically cookie cutter cars. The movie lays out in a really really interesting madman fashion. You know at the time. They're just not cool. How do you how do you get cool? You get cold by doing something sexy and that that requires bringing in visionary Inari designers and I think that's that's the story is the idea of you know individual creativity visionary creativity trying to exist under a crushing and cynical corporate structure for Ford. Is the villain of this movie to even though it's forgery Ferrari. Yeah but then make that movie like I. I'm into that..

"Mike Welcome back to the pod Hey Jamie thanks for being here good to be always one of our favorites so in one of our favorite things to talk okay many months of what felt like in exile the Doug Ford exile he is back making headlines this week and there's been a lot said about Ford being essentially told or nudged to stay off the radar these months because of fears that he could hurt Conservative leader sure we've talked about that on this podcast many times his approval ratings have been dismal but what else have you been hearing about the purpose of this hiatus Doug Ford needed to do this for himself not just the fans year absolutely you know there's this idea that somehow you know the big folks are conservative headquarters in Ottawa old Doug Ford to do this that isn't how it works. He knew that he needed to have a reset and so since the beginning of June he's done a bunch of things things you know he he shuffled his cabinet means you're cabinet shuffle got rid of the Finance Minister who delivered the budget only a few weeks earlier right his chief of staff laugh Sousse the controversial Dean French who many blamed even within the Conservatives of creating kind of toxic environment at Queens Park for for staff offend for a MPP left in a amid a nepotism scandal right let's talk about that a little bit more as this Patriot scandal the premier rescinded to plummer point it's this morning after reports revealed two of the appointees are tied to his chief of Staff Dean French so dean French premiums top political adviser laughed shortly after it got revealed that people who are closely connected to him partly through relatives of his wife also through the Lacrosse movement but she's been involved in got some really plum appointments six figure salary jobs as trade representatives antero and so that was the final Straw for for Dean French now when he resigned Dean French didn't say that had anything to do with the nepotism see handle there was bring around him basically the announcement came out from the premiums office was that he was going to pursue other opportunities and that he had never intended to around as chief of staff for very long you really think I walked down the street and Berta people worry about being French do you think they worry about anything they worry about a job that the key thing is that he was in large part responsible for you talked about the moving fast and breaking things method of the Ford government could central figure yet so it was kind of a take no prisoners act as if you've got a really really big mandate to do whatever you want and I think one of the the changes that's happened over the past few months that permanently Ford is listening more to people who to who were saying to him you know we're making mistakes and just because you want a big majority doesn't mean that you know damn the torpedoes Usan just forge ahead and not worry about the consequences essentially that it was a mandate to do whatever you want necessarily what everything from cutting Toronto City Council in half to the attempt to appoint Doug Ford's friend Ron Governor as a the Commissioner of the we've talked about this on the podcasts before absolutely van controversy continues to swirl around the choice of a new provincial police chief on the heels of allegations of favoritism and political interference in the selection process Premier Doug Ford now faces a serious allegation that his office asked the forced to hide a questionable expense all of these things that were piling up and then the budget the budget the big problem with the budget for for Doug Ford was that there were all these cuts they're kind of hidden from so instead of a big rip the band aid off moment on budget day to say you know we've got to make some tough choices the the cuts were buried and we found out about them as reporters sort of day after day after day after day and it meant a whole bunch of bad publicity for the government and we talked about this with you before on the Kathy idea that it just felt like every day there was a headline yeah and that was because of the way they went they went about trying to make it seem as if the budget wasn't such should burn sorta thing so by the time June came and and for its polling numbers were had fallen off a cliff in he really needed to make this change so I think I think the cabinet shuffle the Dean French departure and the And just this time away from the spotlight has been a good thing the Ford government to try to pick itself up from the floor which it had fallen.

"It's for a smaller compact pickup truck like that it's pretty unusual for that to happen just found that kind of interesting and you know what we're going to have the rest the new ranger and we're GonNa get to that you know the specs and you know the information about it and you know what makes it different or unique or interesting I still want to talk about you know the nineteen eighty three to two thousand eleven Ford Rangers just to live a bit they were extremely popular here in the United States in a lot the leader in the in the market I guess for that size vehicle in as far as sales go a lot like the Ford F series which has been what decades of top-selling vehicle but the one thousand nine hundred eighty three to two thousand eleven ranger one of the most popular pickups on the road but it disappeared is the car companies started move toward oversize trucks and then you know of course SUV season you know we've heard this story many many times from different manufacturers they started to drop some of their smaller product you know those were the fuel-efficient smaller vehicles in the lightweight and head a feature that everybody really liked and enjoy their top sellers but they had to make room for the production of some of these bigger. SUV's bigger pickup trucks people wanted the bigger vehicles and this is back when fuel prices were at an all time low and you know just back to kind of that idea that excessive weight and size didn't matter at that time but then you know we kind of pulled that back a little bit a couple of times here and there and you know it's it's just going through these different fluctuations where people want different things at different times and for just kind of gave up on the Rangers Certain in two thousand eleven but not entirely as I said you know they they started those exports that went to South America Argentina. You know the Latin American The Latin American ranger which was around for don't sometime th the global ranger I guess is what they call it but you know the thing is once they did that in two thousand and eleven there were still a lot of people that really wanted the ranger to return percents and you know we're talking about a good seventy eight years now so there's a lot of people that are pretty excited about seeing a return now it is coming back as a a slightly larger vehicle it's going she be a mid sized truck is going to be in the mid size market they're basing this on the idea that the success of other models that our competitors to this you know the trying to think of what other one is there are there's the Shetty Colorado with a bigger one like the crew cab that has four wheel drive there's the Honda Ridgeline which again all wheel drive. There's the Toyota Tacoma same thing you know the double cab to a Tacoma 'cause we'll talk about you know vehicles in this class that are closely matched to what the Ford Ranger you're going to see on the streets is going to look like and behave like but the Colorado's really kind of the barometer for these mid size truck sales and I guess the sales on those are up something like eighty three percents two thousand fourteen so there's definitely a market for this vehicle and forces bringing the ranger back hoping that they can cashing on some of that success and that it can be a a smaller but still solid alternative to its f one fifty line that it's such a popular seller the pricing laid out here right now with the with the pricing on this because it's it's actually more affordable than you might thinker might have thought it would start at and the X. There's three model lines here that we are trim levels rather for the Ford Ranger at least in his first year and twenty nineteen and this is coming right from four comma the XL model which is kind of the base level Ford Ranger is starting right around twenty four thousand three hundred dollars the xl tea which is the mid range is right around Twenty eight thousand one hundred and twenty dollars and then there's the the top level which is the Larry it and Larry addition is right around thirty two three hundred ninety thousand so it does go up significantly from that point now also want to point out that I'm reading a few articles here from current driver road and track places like that that review these vehicles and they say that you know of course you can get one for twenty four three but it's not going to have many bells and whistles it's going to be pretty plain the ones that they tend to send to these These automobile magazines are a little bit more decked out with some of the the fancy bells and whistles and some of the fun stuff on them you know all the options so you get real fancy with the options the cost can go up to something like forty five thousand dollars so you're talking about forty five grand for a mid size pickup and when you see the size of it forty five grand might seem like an awful awful lot for a pickup truck I mean it's long little truck though I mean we we can talk about some of the features that make it desirable you know like why you might want to buy one and and honestly maybe the number one thing that you should consider is the you know over looking at if you're looking at a Ford F one fifty if you don't need something quite that large if you want some just a little bit smaller it does provide better fuel economy A and of course it has handling and maneuverability that is is better than the F one fifty just due to its size I mean that's inherently in part of the design is just going to that way it has a high strength steel frame which is actually pretty nice it supports a mostly steel body which is was really good because there's a big push to move to aluminum for these pickup trucks. Now in its ED courses high strength aluminum or military grade or however they want to market the stuff but the steel frame again mostly mostly steel body that's used there are some elements of the vehicle that our aluminum and that would be the hood the front fenders and the tailgate which are really the only areas we're aluminum issues right now they're saying they're saying that you know there's a chance that eventually this thing might go the same way as the F. One fifty with you know the more aluminum used as far as the the power plant goes they have used the ecoboost engine again so it's the two point three liter ecoboost engine it's right around two hundred and seventy horsepower which has a at three hundred and ten pound feet of Torque so it's pretty strong I think it's a decent little work truck again like my friend Steve's truck was you'd be surprised how much how much you can do with a small truck like that US seven thousand five hundred pounds of is the the towing limit that's if you have the trailer towing package which of course an add on which costs you more money so weigh the pros and cons so that if you need the trailer join package and has a ten speed automatic transmission which all right we've I need to pause here from talk about the ten speed automatic transmission because this I have in the past talked about the transmission I believe it's an eight speed transmission that was on my wife's jeep product she had a a jeep renegade it could just be a difference in manufacturers it could just be this one was not working right or whatever but I had a heck of a time with that eight speed transmission the automatic searching for gears it was like it never could find the right gear to be in whether it was going uphill downhill flat road whatever it was the thing was constantly searching for gears and it just didn't ever feel right to me maybe it wasn't smoothness issue maybe it was a you know software issue I don't know maybe it was the manufacturer could have just been flawed to begin with but I'm hoping that this ten speed automatic is a little bit smoother in the in the Ford Ranger and the only way to find that out I guess would be to get some seat time in this thing and and to be able to drive which I haven't done yet but I would love to so maybe someday I'll take one for a test drive in Suss it out for a little bit and see if you know I can report back you anything positive or negative on that 'cause I don't know I I would love to hear from somebody who maybe we already owns one of these and if you do have an issue with that transmission or actually any transmission that has you know upwards of six years when when you get up to you know the eight ten speed transmissions I think find a lot of problems sort of like what I have and and a maybe that's not the case in every situation but again I I'd love to hear from listeners about that automatic options as well it's not just adding different engine transmission combinations or you know whatever the case may be you're starting to add things like the chrome packages and the appearance or the FX offroad appearance packages or you know things like that so look carefully into that and right now you know this is another thing that we should talk about Ford has its raptor line of the F. One fifty the that whole F- line product outstanding vehicle performance vehicle I guess if you can call it off road performance really but right now as far as is the raptor package goes for the ranger they're saying that right now they don't have any plan to do anything like that but I can just about guaranteed in the next couple of years they're going to come out with Raptor version of this whole thing and maybe we can do another podcast about that because that will be an exciting one to drive I'm sure a a mid range or I'm sorry mid size pickup that has perform comments on level with you know some of the year the raptor line I think that'll be exciting to report on but you know before we get too much further into this we're going to have the rest in just a moment the debris you know earlier I mentioned that autozone provides a free service it's really quite helpful it's called the free autozone fixed under service now the free autozone fit finder services something where they analyze.
