Moms Are Not Okay

"The new york times did an article. It was more. What was it. It was like a series of articles. It was yes see peace. I guess they call it. America's mothers are in crisis and it has like sort of six articles underneath one umbrella. I'll put the link in the show notes. Yeah and i thought it was interesting and it captured a lot of the stuff that we're hearing. Oh before we do that though. I want to say one other thing. Someone else talked about. Which i think is another part of this frustration. That like she's living this crazy pandemic life and her neighbors just came back from disneyworld Like there's also that whole aspect where it's like we are in this cocoon of our house traps together for a year and then on facebook. There's like friends of ours bars and we're just like we what is life. It's like all the tent poles of sanity have been pulled up and we're just kind of flailing we'll let me tell you it's really hard about that. Is you know speaking from experience or somebody close to me that the people who are going to disneyworld seemed to be fine and the people who are staying home and doing nothing like you know went to the corner wants and geico vet like covert isn't being fair on who decides to track down if you feel me yes and that is for sure and i know you realize this a completely anecdotal like experience that you're having which is not actually true like yes. People are getting cova at disneyworld and getting it. You know by trying to go to school right. That's right. It happens to all of us but the sensation when you see only the pictures of like people on vacation is like wait. Why am i in hell and these other people are like flittering around you know and it's just mentally really difficult and the new york times article focuses specifically on working moms which is another whole aspect of this. Ps all working moms hashtag. We are all working but this is like with the boss. Yes moms who work outside the home and now inside the home. That's the problem is responsibilities to a third party yet right. You're trying to work from home. And i mean it was illuminating. Hadn't really thought about one of the women is like a counselor and she's trying to have meaningful conversations with people and our kids like running around in the background. Like i mean we have you guys have heard sometimes on this podcast like one of my kids will open the door and the background i mean like what am i need but i run a parenting. Podcast just go. I'm home and my kids are here. You hear them. Yes but there's a lot of jobs really the stress of you can't have your kid in. The background is really profound. There's one picture. And i guess i'll put this in the show notes as well. The linked to the pictures you guys can see it. 'cause i seen it all over facebook. There's one photo split screen of a mom wiping toddlers but while in the next room. The dad is sitting calmly on a conference call and the mom is also on a work. Call right but it's the mom that is wiping the taller spot. While she's like trying to close a deal and the other parent is in the other room getting to act as if the pandemic doesn't exist and what bothered me about this article looking at it with any angry visit. This was very much. Phrased is a mother's problem which it is not a parental problem. Right guys problem that the toddlers at home and needs his butt wipe during a conference call because the mama handle it and this is something we've talked about a lot. And i mean we my husband and i had come to jesus moment about this at some point fairly early on which was i mean. My job is much more flexible than my husband's job. And my husband is also the primary breadwinner household right and also less lucrative right right so there are some natural kind of. What's the word like inertia things that happened. There which is like i am more available and able and his job is not quite so like a kid screaming in the background. Sorry i don't know what he's done but he's on calls with people with money already. He's tried to get it. You know whatever he's doing right. And so i understand this parameters. But i did say early on to him. Your work and his work has been understanding. Thank god some people's aren't but i said you're working needs to understand that it is not my job to create an atmosphere where the pandemic is not happening so you can continue to work as if the pandemic is not happening and i have to like as my mom would say stand on my head spit wooden nickels to make sure that everything stays peaceful in your office environment. It's not realistic. And it's not going to

What they're saying: Philadelphia Eagles, Wentz or other teams — who has the leverage?

"All about away. Bought away by the way. The miami dolphins got their guy. I just meant they got us. That dude is they got a guy young guy so let's put some. what are we talking about. Let's put the question. Then this way. And by the way i would say this right now to are coordinating producer. Pete mcconville and our producer. Allie grenade. i don't understand how we do not yet have a feature called jeff saturday. Who's high this week. I mean every week jeff. Hester name that's got to become a tuesday stable. Is this week. We make a segment out of everything on this show but markets very quickly. If the dolphins get forgetting about guam if the dolphins get to shawn watson are they the biggest threat to kansas city in the afc next year. Yeah they are. And i know i say that because i saw were buffalo did. But i'm taking the sean before. I take josh allen and their defense. I'm taking miami. Defense with the sean. Look the inspire football. You play when you have a guy at that position that you know you can't win wit. It takes it to a different level. I love how floor is coaching. But i do think that sometimes going in and out with fits magic and into mayor. Put this team in kabul unknown territory. About what their identity was offensively and the defense never had a question. About what their identity. Would you bring this on. You answer that question. That's our quarterback. Raise the level of play of everybody around you. Oh and yeah let me tell you why. Because he threw for the most yards went out of number one receive on team this year. That's how good he is. Listen this is a no brainer. I would love to see desha watson and josh allen go toe-to-toe for years to come in that division and see who can make it out and then get the kansas city potentially in the afc championship bottom line in miami. They've been trying to find the next dan marino for twenty years. They thought maybe you're still may have him into a tunga vilo but shawn watson is as much more. A known commodity will see if that plays out. Meanwhile quarterback rumors are everywhere including these that the eagles wanna move carson wentz. We know that. What kind of market are they. Finding darlington has the very latest. It could be very interesting. Plus lebron james having another mvp caliber season. You'll hear why jay williams thinks he should win the academy award as well. That's on the way this is get up on. Espn do you own. Read your home share. You and i bet it can be hard work. You know it's easy bundling policies with geico geico makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com. Get a quote and see how much you could save. Its gyco easy visit. Geico dot com. Today that's geico dot com on. We go get up. And another of the quarterback trade sagas continues this one involving that main carson wentz whom league sources believe is on the way out of philadelphia and the eagles may also explore options with his longtime tight. Ends zach ertz. Perhaps philly could include ertz in a wentz package to maximize trade value. Words has one year and eight point. Two five million dollars left on his contract it look. There's a whole lot of speculation in jeff darlington insider here. I'll start with you as to why no deal has been worked out with wentz yet and one of the ways that i look at it from afar is maybe eagles. Just overestimate what it is. People might be willing to give up for wentz at this point when you consider the contract that he has. It's essentially the same circumstance as jared goff in los angeles and the rams had to pay a team to take him off their hands. So is that how similar or those situations and could that be. What's holding this thing up. Well very possible. Greedy speaking with a source with the eagles who certainly understand everything. That's going on with this deal. And you know the one thing that he said. I said what's the holdup here in his answers february sixteenth. Today lear doesn't even start for another month by a bunch of exclamation points and there is something certainly to that. March nineteenth is the date that they'd have to decide on paying him. That ten million dollar rostov on this. This is the runway that they're working with now. Of course you do want to make sure that you make the most of your leverage multiple teams involved. You don't wanna lose one of those teams and then Maybe cost yourself some compensation from that other team but we can point out here that This this source also told me that there is no no trade clause in carson wentz deal so it doesn't really matter say he wants to go to the colts but they're getting more compensation from the bears. They could just send him to the bears. It wouldn't be a problem

The pennington obviously has improved processor as well now has a five nanometer process which is the smallest current design processes of apple coming out with a three nanometer process later this year and the top of the line sense. On s twenty-one ultra only comes in five twelve gigabytes of storage but sixteen gigabytes iran. Which is truly incredible. I think the top of the line iphone early has six gigabytes of ram. But of course apple is very good at making you tired when it doesn't need memory but one thing that samsung did do was got rid of the este card slot microscopic cutthroat which is annoyed. A lot of people who lacked have five twelve geico one terabyte interesting qods in their phones to stall photos and videos and also even though samsung mocked apple including a charge.

"Talked to jim. Heard the guy that made the offer. Was jim barnett right when when we were on the road I don't think i ever met jim. Heard and i know there's rumor innuendo out there aren't i don't think being you've ever talked about this. But when paul roma became a horseman supposedly they were in negotiations with you. Tally is that the way that actually happened or is that just start sheet stuff that became our no. No they were. What only i think was the booker at the time. And i said i don't know i think they contacted me and i said okay i. I don't know if it was a money thing or not but there was not really a job offer. But they kept insinuating that i would be there on. Tv i set a registered letter to their office to let them know that i wouldn't be there because they had negotiated any money or anything like that. And i literally set that and then it's the only pay per view that i've ever bought. I bought that to see how they would explain me. Not showing up and It was probably as big a flop of anything because the fans were expecting me to come out and paul roma came out and it really wasn't fair to him no but the the audience didn't like it at all i don't think aren't what are you remember about that now. Alice excited that. I had heard he was coming back. You know I've never asked anybody make none of my business All i'm concerned with what i make and i just heard there was a stall. No one was specific. I know that it already been put out. There and the tally was coming back. And there's let's face it you know. Nobody was in second place. You could have brought hulk hogan out there. Put him in that spot. It would not have been received like it would have been with tali right and it wasn't fair paul. He was putting a ridiculous situation and it just started to go downhill every concoction. Every you know every version of the horse run from that day forward just started to get used less and less and devalued and it was just a placeholder on the car and it was basically. The only thing that was over anymore was the name that was at in this. You know the group was not over. We weren't used in a capacity that we could get over Cross were just you know midway to first match after intermission and when you get bumped down the ladder i guess you could say the fans know it and they see it and now you're middle guy you're not a top guy anymore and that's basically what happened. Well we're all top guys for getting to listen to this today. It's so cool to catch up with you guys and listening to you. Talk about your shared. Experiences real quick. I want to remind everybody whether you ran her own. Gyco makes it easy to bundle home and car insurance geico dot com the day. And thank you gyco for helping. Make this happen.

"You this episode. They make it easy to bundle your home and car insurance having home as hard work. Get a quote at geico dot com really. Is that easy totally. When did you realize hey man this might not be all. It's cracked up to be I'm not saying necessarily want to run back and work for jim. Crockett promotions but thankfully. That's not a thing anymore. Earners running the show. But i don't know what i gotta do. But i gotta get off this crazy train of working for vincent van and being in a different town every single day. Yeah well. I mean we were in a different town every every night. Basically with the other company to the private planes made it a little bit east flying home and that kind of stuff but was It was hard work wrestling. You know every night but that but that's when the live audience was your product and the tv show was the infomercial and when that all changed it changed the way the the businesses but it was. I don't remember. I know when aren't and i wrestled the first time. In the garden against the mid ninety not against a rock the rockers. the rockers We had to go twenty minute time limit match and the probably the biggest major tactical error that i ever did was when i came back to the curtain hogan looked at me and said what do i what am i supposed to do now. And i said something smart alec and don't remember exactly what it was but we were never on. We were never on before the main event ever again. We never on another hogan card ever again and But it was. They were running three towns tonight. We became the main event guys in the third towns and the third town started making money instead of losing money. So it was. I mean it wasn't a bad thing but we were making the same money. We were making for crockett. So it was a lateral move and Private plane now. Yeah yeah yeah but it. And and the horsemen. Crockett did fly the horsemen first class when they were on commercial flights which that was roasti toasty and A good thing but You know so it was just a thing where you know they they. They reached out After turner bought crockett they reached out to us. No i i called aren't wasn't it wasn't it. We called when we were in denver on over member where we were. We'd wrestled in sacramento the night before and drove back to to San francisco to catch a flight to denver and we talked about Going calling them and asking if they wanna put the horsemen back together. And so the next morning. I think it was. Denver may not have been. But i called up and asked for barnet and i said Jim i said do you want to put the horsemen back together again. And he said. I'll call you back in five minutes and the phone rang. And he he didn't say anything other than seven hundred fifty thousand dollars each for three years and I said okay. And i did. I call you or were you in the room with me. Aren't you call me. Yeah and you know. That was more money than i had ever thought about making and we agreed to it and spent the next three months trying to get out of new york aren't tells the story that you Went and tried to have a conversation with vince. and vince. basically said you know. Stick with me. And i feel like you had heard that song and dance before with crockett. And you try to do that. But then ultimately wind up making the decision. We do need to go ahead and leave. How do you remember that going down. Telling yeah i i. It's all kind of mishmash because that's all that that process win In that process we'd given the notice and then he made a big deal about a stay in for survivor series We were on Aren't we were on andrei team and So it was so on and so forth. And then i. That's when i flunked the the urine test a in philadelphia. But they didn't tell me until a week and a half later after we had done the tv because they wanted to beat me up on tv and so i thought that was good but But anyway but that's You know i. It's it's and i. I got to say on jericho's podcasts. But that's the only thing. I don't have a problem with me. Not being in the business. My life has been fine. My my only in. I have very few regrets in life but when when my drug test affected arn that broke my heart and You know he had to make some decisions And it it was not a stellar moment for me and Because it was. I i didn't even get high. All i did was licked the inside of a bag hunting. Wish i wish. I got hammered in my my quick research you guys were at a wrestling challenge taping in wichita kansas at the kansas coliseum november first nineteen eighty nine yup. That's that's when it all sort of came to a head we We recently visited Aren't have a little thing. We got going called ad. Free shows dot com.

"Know it was. It was a neat neat experience. The thing that would have been probably a greater experience for us is if he would have worked with us every night he worked with us on tv and big shows and He did travel with during the week. which was which was fine. I mean aren't and i could certainly function without a manager But it would have been it it. Just it might. It might have had a lot more entertainment back stage for us if he'd been there all the time rather than just a tv. So you guys come in your put with bobby heenan very quickly. You're going to be pretty. High profile matches You guys are working with demolition heart foundation. But it feels like a much different presentation than working down south as they like to say. New york What was the difference in the tag team style that you used with. Say the midnight. So the rock 'n roll's or the road warriors versus now you're with the rockers and the hart foundation demolition. Was it same thing just a different style ring or was it totally different totally now. It was totally different. In my opinion we just had to reeducate the guys that we worked with as a wrestling fans that the stuff was Vince never never really pushed tag teams right. And we have the opportunity to to change that and And so it was. We had. We had great matches with the rockers. I don't know that we had great matches. With the sheep herders. We had good matches with the sheep herders. But i don't know that they might have been great The hart foundation because of the people that were in it and the amount that they were over we we did We had we had good matches with them. We had Good matches with Demolition and But the the the thing that everybody that worked for crockett new that they were going to be featured and we would make them look better than they can make themselves look and that was our reputation. It wasn't any question about it and the people working for the new york office didn't have that. I don't know that they had ever had the anybody worry about their stuff. Rather than everybody worried about their own stuff. Does that make sense. Yeah absolutely aren't i. Hit that nail on the head or yeah the biggest thing right off the get go as they said. We don't want you doing this day. One go to the ring. Do not do this. And i think it was jack lanza. So we work create that was created through their competently. They didn't want it. We're starting over. The the blessing was they didn't give us some terrible costuming. Some goofy catchphrases goofy costuming. We pretty much the horsemen with a different name. And that was the main thing i was worried about. The vance even said one time he said you guys let you know you guys lend credibility to my company. Which was the biggest car compliment he ever gave us But we you know the one thing we did have to learn as they had a definite pecking order there and teams were positioned underneath the middle top teams and what was not appreciate it whereas from the get-go whether it was roman powers or whoever it was we went out and try to have too good a match and we were still learning. Hey apparently i was still learning. Because i thought going out having the best match possible so did dolly was the right thing to do but not with those guys. There were certain teams that you know. If demolition worked with them they just stayed up and we made a couple mistakes early about selling too much for certain teams who had been beaten to death. Barry dr so grabby the first curtain you know first time we came. We came to the curtain. Geico's come with me overhearing suspend cut out all those bumps. Do that up here. Well i figured it out the next day because that really was hard bigger and it was harder and buddy. If you're gonna wrestle as many times as those guys did and i would soon learn how much they traveled. How many skipping across the country and around the world for that matter on those planes you didn't go out there and have a four star match. Some nights just wasn't supposed to be an assault stuff that we picked up pretty quickly and obviously have bobby the had to do was just look at the crowd and they started the weasel stuff. He's cake. Yeah totally when you guys were up there. One of the things we've talked about with arnez is how brutal but travel schedule was compared to when he worked for crockett. Can you give us a glimpse into what that schedule looks like. Because we've heard from you a lot on i called. Wwe dvd's where you talked about the crazy horsemen lifestyle. Where you guys would wake up here. Do the show. Florida vegas party all night flying back the next morning do another show. Fly back vegas. This crazy jet said started the horsemen but now man.

I quit Do you want to belts tonight or tomorrow. Night in philadelphia and i was done and i didn't expect aren't come with me but i was done so to to recap you felt that you've been booked unfairly The they were taking advantage of you. And you you're putting everybody over every night. Maybe you'd been slided on a payoff. We've detail that own orange show in the past and Now with seemingly there's a life vest coming for the crockett's they're passing out guaranteed contracts to other teams and other managers. And you guys. Don't get that opportunity. So you feel slighted again and then you kicked off the plane. That's enough had had enough. I need to be spanked. And i think aren't tells the story that when you guys come back from meeting with vince you You go give notice to dusty and drop the belts that night to the midnights. I totally totally well. That was the night before in. Houston with what i said and i didn't know that aren't was gonna go with me the next the next morning. Tell us when we got up. I called dr so he called me back. They put two plane tickets for and we got up that morning after flying in from houston to to fairly we got up the next morning and blew up to venice and we met out by the pool. We did discuss money not. He didn't promise us what we would make but he asked what we make prior any subtle. No problem i can. I'll certainly do better than that was was one of the things he said we flew back to philly went in that night when it was time to get there and turned down our notice and it was may supporting my. You know my partner you know and there was so many things that had snowballed everything from you know if you go back to houston that night. We had a dark match with the midnight. Express went out there for twenty minutes toward the joint down. I come back through. The carton was two or three minutes. Jimmy comes over and says Was jimmy somebody came over and said. Hey you gotta work again. You'll see williams four minutes you know williams over so i called jimmy in there. What's going on what what my being punished or he said. Hey aren't just going with the flow here and that was abuse to me. I think it shed on show me doubt that i could beat steve williams williams with the flame thrower. That's not the question. We shed on the midnight express shed on toll in that we just went out and netted competitive tore the joint down. And now you're just gonna squash me you know just like i'm a guy showed up that works for piggly-wiggly. During the week and it all was into pay for view payoffs never came to fruition. There was so many things that happen. Just weren't right and if you wrote them down on the paper and looked at them reasons we left. If you took down everything. It wouldn't be hard to believe that those guys were getting the shaft and you know we all remember. Bits and pieces of things with there was a lot of things that were very clear that happened right before we left. Yeah.

"Dusty against me and what that would do would say. These guys are off national television because we always talked about being on national television and these are the big time guys on national television. And here's their match versus And they put him on a main event above there are other guys in the local territory. And i think that ultimately killed them all because if they would have brought dusty in and wrestled their top. You would have made their their people up on the same level. Does that make sense does and You know so. I mean i i brought. I can remember one time. I brought oli and tommy rich in will only wrestled waku and i wrestled tommy rich into southwest championship wrestling. The to elevate us. I didn't wanna be you know. Have oli tommy. Rich wrestling each other So anyway and then as you did that then. Crockett took over all the territories. I don't know the the whether he bought or what happened. But now you become the national television forte for wrestling medium for wrestling and then with the usa network the wwe. Which i don't you probably know. I think aren't does but southwest championship wrestling. My dad not put together was the first wrestling show on usa network and And we were too small and didn't have enough money between the two of us to pay our tv bill. And then vince wind paid the bill and got the tv time has been pretty profitable with it..

The the wrestling business changed because of the superstation and the thing that without getting off on a rabbit trail or diving down a rabbit hole. All the the smaller territories were affected by what went on the superstation. The farther west. They didn't get affected quite as bad because of the time changes and they didn't have the six zero five but east coast and central time Six oh five and five o.

"Time you talked andre. Last time we'll talk andrea would been his last eight in. That was well. You know what. I take that back i take that back. I'll tell you a story about andrei. When i was fired and it was vince. Forty fifth birthday or something like that that that august. i was still in connecticut. And even though i've been fired i had been invited to this surprise. Birthday party for vents went with piper. And when we got there Andrei it was at the rainbow room rockfeller center and andrei sitting on a bench outside the deal. When it was presented to vince that this was a big celebration for dick. Ebersol who getting a big award. And the vince was presenting the award That's what they did to get vince to show up there and beforehand I was there With regis philbin piper. Heynen few other guys and i thought it was so cool. You know regis philbin Haski asking about me. And what happened. And i'm gonna talk to. Its but andrei asked me says. Where have you been. Sadda- boss said i. I got fired. May and he was like why acid. Look man i didn't really get along with flip and said which is kinda came to an end benz. Let me go this is. Vince is birthday and his night. And andrei cut a promo on vince. About firing me on vinson's birthday at his birthday party not a big deal but it was like yo keep all these other you get rid of him and he's why in so that was that was kinda cool in andres part. I think that was that was last time i saw the boss. It's pretty weird deal to think about it. In hindsight about what a big impact he had and how famous he was an all happened. You know before cable. Tv before social media before he was like one of the last great stars like you. Just everybody in the whole world knew who was and this is pre internet and that's pretty fascinating to think about how it could be that big. What do you think ultimately will be. His legacy in professional wrestling will always be the feud with hogan wrestlemainia. Three i mean. He set so many records whether biggest cable rating biggest tv rating biggest gate. I mean just unbelievable. I think that he's going to go down as the original eighth wonder of the world. Because that's who andre was and he was arguably the single biggest attraction in the world in the wrestling business for many years. Because you could put andre the giant on your card and you'd have a sell our other than his name. So i think that the eighth wonder of the world and one of the greatest attractions in the history of the.

"I don't know we'll. The seed was planted that he might be turning heel on november. Twenty nine one thousand nine hundred eighty six interview where they announced that andrei suspension had been lifted. And jack tunney confirmed that andre. The giant wasn't at the hearing. But bobby the brain heenan was and that's sort of a little hint. Fast forward superstars in january of eighty seven. And that's the famous piper's pit showed that whole piper's pit bit with andrea and hogan is still one of the more legendary who unquote interview segments of all time. Not absolutely one of the best ever and it was also kind of cool because it was a little bit of a double turn with piper going to the baby face side and on to the hillside but just legendary with andrei ripping the shirt in the cross off of hogan and I was just good shit to this day. I don't believe that andrei That it was planned for the cross to come off right or the blood come out. I mean his fingernail victim. It was it was it was interesting. We should also mention in the bill to that match. Andre wrestled one time. It wasn't necessary for him to do more. He had one match on. Saturday night's main event. It was taped february. Twenty first and aired on march fourteenth. It's a battle royal and it saw hawke. Andre come face to face. It doesn't eleven point six rating a record for the time. I mean really. Pretty remarkable and then wrestlemainia three-man. What else is there for us to say about wrestlemainia three. Well yeah. Yeah absolutely nothing. But the thing on the build up is he didn't have to see andre russell. You'd say you had seen the giant for years and years and that is what you know you were going off of. You didn't wanna see the giant in the shape that he was in at that time. You wanna just just be able to talk about the legend that the giant was. That's a rumor and innuendo around wrestlemania. Three they retold it in the whole documentary that Hogan wrote it all out on a sheet of paper. I don't know how much of that believe. There was concern allegedly Will he do business. We'll he cooperate. And supposedly. he had had two fifths of crown royal by day. Do you think we'll ever know the real truth about that night or that match. Or which version do you believe. I believe that andre was fucking with hulk. I believe that andrei kept help guessing and kind of wondering what he was gonna do if he was gonna do business Just to gonna have fun with him. I don't believe for even a half of a second. Audrey didn't go into that match and know from day one exactly what he was going to do and how he was going.

"Hoax appearance in rocky would have made a difference in in his popularity overall I got county that at all because hulk goes popular restaurant in the world that time because of the movie but still think all the charisma that larger than life persona to to take it and go beyond your. Here's what i mean. I guess if came and and continued down the trajectory he was on. He's getting hot. And vinci's book vincent book and pretty well but then he becomes a bigger star under rock because iraqi. Maybe vance pushes them a little more. It makes me wonder if the business was now thriving all the sudden and all these other outside opportunities for coming would vince senior have expanded beyond his territory. Probably not based on what we hear. Would he have been as inclined to sell to vince. Junior and if not how different is wrestling look as a result of that well first of all as far as senior selling that was going to. I think that based on vince a senior been seniors age in his desire to slow down quite a bit. That was happening. That wasn't determined on vince. Expanding the business or anything else like that vince. His father was getting out of the business. It was time to move on. Events made him an offer I don't know. I think that those things still would have happened so i just don't know how much of a how much would may now when you look at. How many other wrestlers could fill that rocky bill. You know you're we're talking about one right now. And that's andre. The giant would have been probably a perfect foil for rocky and rocky three to do all the shit hole that hope did. It's just fun to think about. You know what could have been ultimately we know that You know he. He was a legend everywhere. He went The stories of him visiting japan are incredible and turning over cars and in eighty two is when he finally. Here's the he needs to see. A doctor about has condition and around that same time. He gets opportunities to appear in a bunch of other. Tv shows like greatest american hero and the fall guy But until the princess bride. He's not giving speaking roles. What's the likelihood that andrei could have just walked away from from wrestling here much. Like roddy piper tried to and few others when he starts to get this new interest it does feel like he could really really slow it down or just walk away completely was it just the love of the boys or the crowd or the lifestyle of being on the road that kept him around as long. They think i think it was. All the above wrestling was his family and wrestling is what he enjoyed to do. And it was the travel it was camaraderie and it was the freedom to do what he wanted to do when he wanted to do it. I think that hollywood was something that could have been there. However you reach iraq amac's outpoint with an attraction like andrei in hollywood no different than you would anywhere else if you see too much of him and yvette too much of him and he's only going to fit certain roles. Audrey he's not going to be a wouldn't be as versatile. Let's say the rock or even hogan Just because of his of his size and his and a little bit of a barrier to entry with his accent is lack of enunciation of the english language. So yes andrei could have done some things and did do a lot of things in hollywood but i think that andres heart was in wrestling. Andres heart was in the locker room with the boys talks with me about the iron sheik incident with him and eighty three over in japan. Did you ever hear about this. Drinking in a bar and andrei starts fucking with chic and rips his pants and i guess Aren she flipped out and threatened to cut him with a razor. Pretty weird sane. Did you hear about this one. No didn't hear about that one. But i could definitely see it happening. I could see andre laughing and dylan shaky would do something with the with the razor if he wanted to try. I guess we should also mention that that happened in eighty three the same time that that famous kamala pistol story happened. Are also eighty-three. When things come to a head i guess His one of his last matches with the awa in november of eighty three And it comes out around. This time that he was not having the best relationship with earn ganja. He didn't like that. Verne wanted him to work twice in a night. A regular match about a royal and he's asking to work with his friends mad dog and rick martel but ultimately when he leaves in november of eighty three hogan goes with him they go to japan and they never come back to the awa by then vincent ran are had already put his hooks in hogen and he's going to debut the following month. We'll fast forward. We know the story. January of eighty four hulkamania is born. We have a new world champion in. Its whole cogan. How important do you think andre was to bringing hogan out of the awa and new york fulltime. I wouldn't be surprised. Boundary was somewhat instrumental in that. You know that you go back and look at that whole thing and the the first contact was steve taylor who was talking for for. Wwe the cayman gave alk a note from vents said. Hey here's vince mcmahon's of phone number for you to call in and that's what's real. That's what really started that that whole negotiation in that opening up that door for hogan to come in for all that take place. So it's i think andrei hogan had a good relationship always did to my knowledge. And i'm sure that andre did have a little bit of a sage votre. New york state are good. It's good place gyco. I guy go because he likes saving money. Whether you ran our own makes it easy to bundle home and car insurance. Go to geico dot com today. Hey so here's the thing..

There's a long standing rumor that andrei if healthier at the time was supposed to win the ninety one royal rumble may truth to that john says was there. Anyone who was truly afraid of andrei. We know there were people who didn't like working with him but was there anyone who completely stayed clear of him. Yeah there there were few people. I don't think that andre really liked the rockers. They tried to stay clear of him You know. I think jake stayed clear oven. Just in general but there were there. Were a few that you just didn't want to be you know. Didn't want to be anywhere near a michael elmer But you you know. I always had a go in and you paid your respect. She said hello. The boss move on with your shit shannon says who had the idea for andrea to be afraid of snakes and did he have any issues when it came to dealing with damien. No not at all I wanna say that was probably the events or at the time that came up with it Because you're you look at everything that you have with andrei and what can be something that can be that achilles heel for andrei and if he had if he's afraid of something we could use that. Then that could work for andre iran. Heart of the people says there. Anything that mr mcmahon of the company would request of any or hotel. The due to accommodate andrei. Are there any stories. You can remember where mr graham and go out of his way to make andre happy or more comfortable we always reach the king size bed form at best and always made sure that they had cars. That were big enough for him. whether that be a limo van and i think andre was usually more comfortable than in like a big in a big van. Type thing with captain's chairs he was sitting in a car Even the limo was was kind of hard to get up and in and out of but big van that he could kinda step into a lot. More comfortable for him Erin as a question. We would normally start our show with but let's talk about it. Here was the first time you met andre for some. I met andrei probably about maybe twelve years. Old twelve thirteen fourteen in that in that range in houston texas. Just as a this is you know. This is bruce. I was a little kid and and then the picture all his from when i was sixteen. I think i was ringing announcing on this particular night and had to get andre for pictures for some folks with goodwill and i remember. Andrei didn't have his hair. His hair all pulled up is your addressed as i think. That's okay man Any came out this under tight barefoot has hair all pulled up into pictures with them. And i said you modified get one too so the next to a picture. Big show is at the in a wedding Two hats wants to know what did entree wear face paint for a short time back in the day. Whose decision was that was andrea. Happy about it. He wore face pate. Oh that for the warriors when he teamed with ultimate warrior or demolition. Or something like that. Yeah it was one of those where he was just another member. Yeah he's just. Did it to be andre moore rivalry fraiche pain to. I'd not like Paul says do you think if andrea was still alive. He would've worked backstage for the company as an agent of booker. A manager or something like that. Audrey definitely had the mind to do it. Yes and i don't see andre running around doing things. But i could definitely have obscene andrei kazakh. Andrei will watch matches and traveling all over the world. You picked up so much and if you impressed. Andrei along the way Whether you were in mexico were detroit or tokyo. Wherever was andre would always go back to the old man different people and see where certain talent might be able to fit in as like see somebody that would really fit in well in texas. He would say. Hey there's this guy Good lordy did he did good with with the guys that you got here and vice versa. And in later years he did that. Lock to events. Just saying hey. There's here's some talent. So audrey always had ideas for other talent and ideas so he definitely would have been. He did have very good mind. Let's do a few more here. jess watson.

"Of questions about this. Brian wants to know what was the bad memories. That vince alluded to at the end of the hbo documentary. I now you didn't just sit down and watch it so let me try to add some context. The best of recollection. Vince obviously got really choked. Up talking about andre on the. Hbo documentary and he talked about how he was special and he also talks about how their relationship got strained towards the end and his feelings were hurt. What he would show up for the w. f. or he would show up for wcw. And i think you sort of alluded to the fact that andres feelings were hurt and these guys were just really close to one another and just not communicating etc etc. Is that sort of the gist of the the hurt feelings of the hard feelings or was there more to it than that between those two. No i think that was it. I think it was had been friends for so long and to reach that point. A knock communicating with one another to reach the point where. You didn't goodbye to a friend that that's hard to do. I'm gonna guess just referring to. I'm going to ask a weird question here. So bear with me and so i try to give some context. Was andre taking those bookings for herb. Abrams and wcw because he needed to or because he wanted to. I mean i know that sounds silly but sometimes we have conversations about guys who made ten million dollars a year advantage to spend eleven somehow and so they just found themselves a spot where it was easy. Come easy go their relationship with money and later in life they just needed the payday or was it. A matter of andrei wasn't he was enjoying what he was doing. He wasn't ready to retire so it wasn't a money issue. It was a love of the game. I want to contribute. I like being on the team sort of thing. I just think it was a moment in time. And i can't speak to her bedroom saying i i couldn't tell you what would possess To have done that however with the wcw thing and the the legend stuff Audrey was close to dusty. Andre was close to bill watts and bruno when those guys so i can. I could've seen dusty making that call and talk him into in in watch making the call talking him into in a just and andre doing it just as a thing to do for them. Ben wants to know whether ever any interactions between andre and taker. That exists in photos or videos that you know of not that i know of and i think that you take her may have been a big guy that andre would have liked. I think that andrei really would like dagger. Well i think they would go together like home and auto insurance whether you ran our own gyco makes it easy to bundle home in car insurance. Just go to geico dot com today. Let's talk about tim why we got so many questions about him. Anthony says i'd love to hear a great story about him and his dear friend. Tim white of course most of our listeners probably remembered him Legendary wbz referee then. They did that rather regrettable skit on monday night raw back in the day but in real life he was great. Close personal friend at tim of andrei and at times almost like his personal guy. I don't wanna say personal assistant but a real traveling companion right. yeah you. Timmy was started with the company and he was a part of our international crew. That would go over. When the international travel was in its infancy. And tim would would go to. Uk go europe. Germany france would have us is an advance guy than tim would travel with. The lucky there. Holkar andrei and tim and arnie sculling were friends. And tim and andrei became very good friends. So tim would be. The one can like frank. Bowel was in the early goings with andrei. The tim became the guy that would help. And it kinda manage andre. Make sure that he got in and out of the hotels okay. Secure the travel and get audrey around and take care of things for andrei so they were just became very very good friends that love one another and got along great you know later on to me game referee and all that other stuff but Tim and andrei was a great pairing. Tim wise will is just few. Just good straight straight narrow. Stand up guys. Carlos says we've always heard about hundred enjoyed his drink and we've also heard how bruce was a fan of the wacky tabacchi. Then andre in bruce ever partake together. No we did not. I don't know that. I don't know that andrea was a big fan of the wacky tabacchi. And i wasn't about being one. Find out andre life drink andrea in the bar. I drank with andrei. And you drink until he will let you go you best out. David wants to know what was the. Most you ever witnessed andre drinking in one sitting. Maybe don't remember the number of beers or beverages but maybe you remember the story we were at so and so i remember a tv taping and andrei ordering forty of vodka grapefruits. Like not one at a time just started. This was the last call okay. So this was after we'd been sitting there for a while.

Oh good fucking singer. Well geico's better at ensuring the new are at singing. Let's talk about andre man we You don't want let's do in We've got so much to talk about laundry. He's got this incredible story usually tell you his whole biography and then we'd do questions at the end but did we just tweeted asking questions yesterday. Like less than a day ago. You've got hundreds hundreds of people are pumped about andrei efforts. Says there's a famous story with bad news brown confronting andrei over some inappropriate comments. Do you have any other stories of someone confronting andrei overviews he spouted. It's kind of an interesting question bruce. Because we've often heard that andrea was you know obviously a massive human being and he was the boss. Did anybody ever try to step up. Audrey that you recall no i. Don't you know andrei was so damn massive. And he was the boss of so much. Respect for. Andrei and andrei was deceptively strong as well. You know the thought of andrei actually working out in a gym and doing some resistance in weight training. I think would have been just a recipe for disaster was already. He was already just naturally strong in in a good lord man. It was unbelievable so he never really worked out. Didn't have to. Adam says andrei said. He turned down the surgery to fix the to itary gland tumor He thought that his size was the of god. The you remember. Paul bosch bent senior events ever trying to change his mind to lengthen his longevity. Well the surgery to my knowledge didn't really come across his plate until much later in his life. So audrey kinda felt that this was this is who he was was identity and anything to just a win and try and change his genetic makeup. I it wasn't really fond of was something that he wanted to address. Here's here's one. You can probably have fun with this comes to us from nick. The norseman shoutout to neck friend of the show. Did he have any good. Pick up lines on talk or god. Hey man foot four five hundred pounds look like andrea media really need a pickup line. Get lots of questions like that. She it want to free up peanut parole. Sean says We've all heard the stories of flare and wilt chamberlain having a lot of fun with the ladies. Any stories of the ladies going one on one with the eighth wonder of the world. Oh in one town to town day by day. How was andrea with the women. We got inundated with andrea. Ladies man questions do you have anything you can share with us. As far as i know andrei was quite the ladies man and he always seemed to. I never saw him with a very large woman. And what i mean by that is not large you know like but never saw with a tall woman it was usually dainty and very small but just kinda led the imagination to run wild. Go crazy a little bit charlie. Thrower wants what it sound. Like if jerry. Jarrett had called. Vincent yearbook the giant from memphis Bad man it's jerry a. j. Jared we know not meant memphis. Yeah we yes bullshit. I'm oh yeah is is is angry available for couple of days. You know john. I got little feller down here. We know the king what home. I thought you pay them. Okay i He'll go over by jerry when he makes you think a lot promote saying that but back then of course finishes were huge deal. Maybe not as much anymore that's to be debated for a no show but when you're loaning out an attraction like that up i think some promoters probably off of paying all that money i gotta use it to get over my other talent and whoever was booking san attraction might think oh no we have the finish negotiated as part of the booking you think anybody ever tried to agree to a finnish the promoter and then try to renegotiate it with andrea in person had to happen right now. I you know. Andrei i think was smart enough and andre always had a guy by the name of frank dot wa that Traveled with him. Wisconsin as handler. Came into the territory. Frank would come in. Frank would handle a lot of the travel arrangements and things like that in. Andre always seemed at least in texas andrea. We're always travel with bronco. Lubich endured any pledges in someone like that and along with frank but frank always got a spot on the card always got like preliminary pay He he got a pay day for being with the giant that night in You know he kind of dealt with frank but the the giant was business may operate was business. You you didn't go in and just you know have andrei do a job. That's not good for your business either to bring in a big attraction like that and just beat him. That doesn't work either. Because then he's wanted done but andrei de the value of working programme being able to come in and put guys over. Andrei knew how to get people over being giant. Andre would leave good and he would always leave the territory good. In my opinion. I think that the way that the boston business was very professional was good. Good way book attraction. I remember Auguring coming in and we had a guy by the name of a killer karl krupp. He was french. Canadian in his gimmick. Was the call which you know because fritz ran dallas is like we had every other fuck agai the business that hannah claw every healed the have clock. Come in and it's an instant program with fritsch battle of the iron claw versus the black. Whatever so crop had had this claw and carl crap was. The question was can crop get the claw on the giants head. What's he gonna do and what crop did and again people sit there and think about it today. oh man. that's you know that's a spot. That's that's fuckin- no it was great psychology and it told a story that you actually believed because demonstrated what crop did is. He applied the claw. Half the face Instead of going temple the temple he went nose to temple. And then he would dig his thumb into the giants. I and fuck it andrea would sell that son of a bitch like a million bucks. And so the controversy was is it an icon is or is a krupp said he goes look just adapted my claude to do half the face and it's so powerful a half of the claw on on behalf of andres head was enough to beat him and andrei sold. That son of a bitch like crazy. But then you know. Andrei came back. Some kind of protective wear over his eye and crippling enabled to put you know. Put the thumb in the eye and andrei medium. The got two out of it. It just ave worked with hardly put harley over. Andrei would come in and rock. You'd work with gino and shit and have returns. Because that's that's what you do. It was business. It wasn't a we had a lot of gaga finishes and shit..

Podcaster Kevin Mason biggest marketing challenge

"I think marketing podcast or any product for that matter is the greatest challenge any was face today. With podcasting, number one is about " How are you going to get it out to the people?". Getting on his many aggregates as you can whether it's on apple whether it's on stitcher whether it's on the new Amazon platform the new Google Platform whatever it is, you gotta make sure number one your podcast is visible and found all those sites you gotta keep it up to date and make sure to go through all of your content to make sure it's formatted properly to make sure it looks good and that's more important because people are gonna look at that little thumbnail on apple or Spotify or Amazon, or Google or wherever it is, and they're gonna look at that picture. So the important part is getting that thumbnail right, having your written work done as well whether it's the short description of the show, the description of the podcast as a whole that's also very important. But more importantly, you really gotTa Work Social Media. I do social media for a living. So it's one of those things I helped brand myself as a social media and hate to use the word " expert", but a social media expert. So I. Think it's important that you have to be active on social media, not only with your podcast, but in addition to what you do. Because really a podcast is branding you as a host sank the biggest challenge with anybody his going out there and finding the time to do it. And that's the toughest thing I have with my clients in the social media world and the music business world, and the entertainment world is everybody finding the time to do the marketing if you do your work ahead of. Time in addition to all the work, you've got to do to put your podcast together. The marketing has got to be I don't want to say just as important, but it's got to be important as well. So whether you're using great tools to get it out there on all of the social media sites on all the aggregate you have to let people know what's out there. The one thing I learned in radio is everybody gravitates toward something differently. One promotional message won't reach everybody. So if you hit them with the same content sold in three or four different ways it can help you. It's much like the theory that Geico has when they use their commercials, you've got some flow commercials. You've got some celebrity commercials. You've got your camel commercials. You've got the guy who guesses aspire agent whose mother calls him about the squirrels they've got a bunch of different ways to get their message out by their insurance. Will you've got almost do the same thing when you're promoting your podcast, you gotta find different ways unique ways to promote it each and every day multiple times a day without wearing your audience out to be able to get out there number want them to listen and number two more importantly get them to help share your content - so more and more people will listen I'm really excited to utilize burst Audio to help promote my podcast even further. It was something I was introduced to through my podcast hosting, which is through <b>blubrry </b> when they decided to allow us to start <span _ngcontent-swo-c27="" using class="transcript-word ng-star-inserted primary-background" id="277.05">A</span><span _ngcontent-swo-c27="" class="transcript-word ng-star-inserted primary-background" id="277.62">udio</span><span _ngcontent-swo-c27="" class="transcript-word ng-star-inserted primary-background" id="277.98">burst</span> to promote podcast instead of the in house tools they had . Now, it gives me the ability to do the bursts whether it's just an audio burst or whether it's a video burst and I actually utilize my video burst every day. I basically, take my daily podcast in my case and create a video burst out of it, throw it up on Youtube and I'm getting more and more hits because some people want to utilize the content there to me it's just the static video bursts that get the most use out of our utilize it every night on twitter after already posted telling people to go to my podcast each and every day I haven't really done much yet with transcriptions. But I think as the AI improves, I want to utilize the transcriptions each and every day. I think the greatest challenge each and every one of us has is to find new and unique and different ways to promote our content. Of course, I'm different because I literally have new podcast every day. So I'm not promoting one podcast for a week or two weeks or a month. I'm literally promoting something new both good and bad. But what I love about audio burst is it gives me a variety of tools and able to go in every day take my podcast off the feed and create a different little promotional burst. If you will. The Sky is the limit right now and I'm just getting started having only been there for about a month I can't wait to see where audio burst grows and more importantly the tools they're offering us to create better content and help promote our podcast even. Better, plus it also helps us build a community amongst podcasters were all hosted on different sites in different places and all across the world and being able to get together and share our content with each other people who understand how difficult it is to create content every day you gotta sound good it's gotta look good and it's all going to be working to build an audience and there's some great podcasters out there I think that's our goal for each and every one of us has to be a great podcast.

First Berlin Production Equipment, New Largest Supercharger Location, Daimler Emissions

Tesla Daily: Tesla News & Analysis

First Berlin Production Equipment, New Largest Supercharger Location, Daimler Emissions

"Our here, and today we have a super charger network update, which is nice. Little throwback for those of you that have listened to the podcast for a long time I used to do those every day at the start of the podcast. We also have some news on Berlin paint a small little updates slash rumor. I would call it on Battery Day and the news on Daimler Nikola Motor as. Well. Tesla stock with another really strong day to day even though it was relatively quiet news wise finishing up seven point two percent to four hundred and forty nine dollars seventy six sense that compared to the Nasdaq up one point two percent we'll start off with these super charger news. This is coming from Brian Mac se on twitter, who is a long-time listener and I believe Patriot supporter of. The podcast who happen to come across a super charger network location under construction near Firebaugh California. As far as I can tell, this location had not yet been noticed. So upon Brian tweeting these out Tesla Motors Club Forum members did some digging on this and they were actually able to find that the permit for the site as well as planning documents for sort of a conglomerate travel center at. This location those documents disclosed that Tessa. We'll have fifty six spots for Tesla charging at this travel center. Assuming each of those spaces has a super charger associated with it. fifty-six chargers would put this as the largest superchargers location in North America and possibly in the world surpassing cattleman city in the United States at forty chargers and believe in China, there are a couple locations that have fifty chargers. So. Pretty exciting this location is between San Francisco and La driven miles. It's about two hundred and thirty miles from La and about one hundred and fifty from San Francisco. It's not clear if these will be all version three superchargers but I'd have to imagine that they would be and as far as other features go. It looks like about two thirds of them thirty eight of the fifty six. will be pull through hopefully accommodating the use of a trailer and making things a bit easier for the cyber truck and potentially also accommodating the semi of course, cincy unveil of the semi. We haven't heard much more about Tesla's mega charger plans. So hopefully, we get a bit of an update on that during battery debt. Right next today is an update on Gigabytes Lynn gigafactory underscore four on twitter. Has Been following. The gigafactory development closely looks like some equipment has started to arrive, and some of that equipment carries branding for Geico Tikey Shah? which is a paintshop solutions provider based in Milan Italy. There's also some signing there that is co branded between that company and desolate GEICO take show describes their approach by saying quote innovation is our weapon of choice were constantly increasing the technological possibilities in. Order to meet the needs of the most demanding customers in a highly competitive sector and quote they also seem to be heavily focused on sustainability and they're their paintshop operations. They have a project called the party's project, and they say quote with the Party's project launched in two thousand, five Geico Kotecki show was the world's first company to offer zero environmental impact paintshop reducing consumption by seventy percent and. So. Without really knowing much more about the company does he pretty good fit for Tesla we know Tesla has pretty big aspirations with the shop and gigabyte Lin Yuan talked about it many times and even setting Matt aside, it's good to start to see some production equipment on the grounds of Giga Berlian and though I haven't seen it yet. Maybe this gives us another milestone to compare the progress with Giga Shanghai from what I can. Tell, it looks like paintshop equipment started being put in place at Giga. Shanghai. In early to mid August of two thousand, nineteen with production of course, then starting about four months later. So if that's the case, if Berlin falls a similar time line that could potentially project out to start production and January probably best to keep expectations for later than that but I do think it's helpful to keep an eye on how those timelines compare all Right next up today is something that could end up being completely nothing but I thought it was at least interesting enough to share earlier today Fred Lammert over at electric tweeted out a couple of images of him holding a pretty significantly sized battery cell and Fred Ask if anyone has seen this battery cell before or you have some information about them, please reach out to him. A says also by the way, this new cell May. Or may not have been made by Tesla I don't really have much speculation to add this. A couple of people on twitter were saying that it does look like a tablets design which we've talked about and past episodes. But really just pointing out to say could be something to keep an eye out for the next couple of days if electric is able to you dig up a little bit more information on whatever this ends up being. Last couple of pieces of news here. Today I on Daimler Daimler has reached a settlement with the US government to pay one and a half billion dollars and settlements and penalties to the US and California State to resolve allegations of Daimler using emissions test cheating software to conceal the actual emissions from vehicles even with the settlement, and despite the fact that engineers at the EPA found software designed to cheat the emissions tests. Damore denies wrongdoing saying quote as stated in the consent degrees the. Class Action Settlement the company denies the authorities allegations as well as the class action plaintiffs claims and does not admit any liability to the United States. California plaintiffs or otherwise and quote. So I don't know kind of disappointing to see a settlement of that nature that doesn't require the admission of fault with such seemingly strong evidence against Daimler right lasting today is a quick update on Nikola Motors. It sounds like from the comments yesterday that most of you preferred that I don't do significantly. Deep dive on this budget stick to the high level updates, which I'm totally fine with if Trevor Milton wanted to come back on the PODCAST, I would probably do that. Otherwise, we'll stick with these updates anyway today the Wall Street Journal and other outlets are reporting that the Justice Department has started to also investigate Nikola Motors due to the allegations that they had misled investors by making exaggerated claims about their technology I know that sounds similar to

Now we don't, but also I feel like this particular crisis at least some of our episodes, you know, obviously, we talk a lot in the bed context the US context, of course, know talked about Hong Kong and Asia and Asia supply chains in China and so forth stills like we've focused a little bit less on how this current crisis is playing out in the Europe. Yeah I think that's right I. Guess the implication is that maybe this has been unfair in some respects because there has actually been something very interesting going on in Europe at the moment. Yeah. I mean, for one thing you know there's a good argument to be made Europe at least relative to the US, if not necessarily Asian countries has done a pretty decent job overall of suppressing the virus self and you know for years during the euro area crisis, they're always people fiscal policy. Fiscal Policy Missing. You gotta spend more gotTa get the Germans to spend more and you know maybe this time it looks like they're actually doing. Yeah that's exactly what I was thinking. So we have the announcement of a big deal seven, hundred, fifty, billion euros worth by the EU to fund on long term recovery. Fund for the Eurozone and that's a big deal because as you point out, everyone's been talking about fiscal stimulus but it looks like the euro-zone is finally going ahead and doing it. Right and so this of course raises questions and it's a theme that we've definitely had a lot on on our podcast, which is, is this offer something bigger for the post-crisis period? So sports, it's well known that know there's a lot of money being spent by governments all around the world including the US. But the question mark is okay when the crisis phase is over the government's just retrench or does this become a sort of new macroeconomic stabilization model? That's a theme that we've had dozens of times but it's particularly important to New York, in context I think because people have sort of identified the lack of fiscal burden sharing his sort of a basic architectural tension or flaw within. Euros. Yeah I think that's exactly right. How does the I don't want to say the intrusion of fiscal stimulus but how does the arrival of fiscal stimulus on the scene actually reshape the way that monetary policy works and I? Guess we should also mention that the is also in the midst of a of another really important project which is rethinking. How it targets inflation. So we have all of this going on simultaneously real existential questions for the role of the European Central Bank. Absolutely well, I'm very excited. We have a fantastic guest to talk about all of this we are going to be talking with Vito comes don. So he is the former vice president of the European Central Bank from two thousand, Ten may twenty eighteen. He's now a professor at Navarra University in Madrid out the perfect guest to discuss all this. So without further ado, let's bring him in a veto. Thank you very much for joining us. So are you happy to not being a policymaker in this time or you? Do Miss being at the ECB during such an extraordinary moment. Well, it's always difficult to get out of you know executive responsibilities and I. Of course, I would not say that I, am Epi at the out or unfortunate circumstances of the covy. The shock we are again in a very important periods of policy making but. Me Europe as been doing well I think in these episodes. Better than in the previous episode of two, thousand. Ten to two thousand twelve. Just to start out with walking the significance of the deal that was agreed, this seven, hundred, hundred, billion euros you tweeted about it clearly, you think it's important. What's the significance. Well it establishes for president that are very meaningful. In, the first place it involves a decision to issue common European depth. The Commission will issue seven hundred and fifty billion of debt to fund these program, and that's the first. The second the point is that these is going to be distributed in the form of budget transfers and not loans to the country's. Third IT'S A big program to implement Wat- is a European fiscal policy stimulus to address a recessionary phase. India to be an economy, and that's also the first time that these happens at this level and fourth the distribution of the ballot transfers which. Correspond to a little more than half of the seven hundred and fifty billion is done in a way that it is not proportional to the size of each country. By two indeed benefits more the countries that's have lower level of leaving and higher unemployment. So there is a convergence play. There is solidarity aspect of these edits also quite new in terms of transfers to give you two examples on a proportional basis, Italy would be entitled to fifty billion, but the they are getting eighty billion. Right as Germany, you'll be entitled to ninety six billion in proportional terms, but is getting only twenty seven. So these four points put together constitute the indeed very important precedents and babs, and do we all hope so that it will be a sign of things to happen. If again, there will be a stressful situation in the European economy, and that's a very important element for everyone the notion that when there is a very stressful social economic situation Europe, steps up and two x decisions to fight the recession and does not leave behind any of the member countries. It's a big message for the future and I think markets are really beginning to injury injuries what these means And we see that already but it will take time of course, perhaps for the markets by Geico anglo-saxon markets to overcome. Lingering, doubts about the European project.

"My bike. So. He rides. He's like you better. You better get out there. I get get screwdriver someone clippers. So I, get out there I. Walk out there. He does one lap. I can't ride this thing the. The bar mounts are on the front hole. I can't. Is. Really, adamant about the front on the show a few weeks ago with you. Yeah, and you guys got into their. Yeah. I'm just not a front whole guy I'm expressing also thinks you're crazy, right? Yeah. Stock Production. Yama comes with the Mount in the front hall now RV. In on this dude is a fricken five four and he likes it in the front hall, whatever. So she said and good one. He rides. It doesn't like that he comes up folks too soft. This whole thing soft. I can't read. I can't push. Go. Go five in everything five and everything. So I cranked it in go, he goes back out. And, low. Speed. And he doesn't not to lapse and he got one good buck, and then you could just see I was like, oh, he's out on this. So he comes back in and I knew my fork was soft, but I didn't really have that much problem with my shock thought, my shock was the firm. And he come in is a everything soft. You need to go spring up on the fork. Spring on the rear. I'm telling all your listeners. You don't know what the hell you're doing. Yeah. He he said you weren't there. He's like hey. Keefer doesn't know how to test. Here we go. He's tested for the race team for three weeks, and now he's the best ever. So he asked him, how much do you weigh are? One eighty something he's like, but here's the thing. You know when I ride, I'm going for it. I'm just out here cruising around. So must have better. Be have some hold up and I'm like RV I'm not as fast as you for one hundred, Sixty, eight pounds. So I ride a little different than you. He's hammer and he's rear steering so. We had a little disagreement on. So yeah, nothing really worked. I should never had gone by Russia's back down He. He did get on his own bug at the end of the day to I. Think he did he did some ops on his own biking. Okay. Yeah. I should have wrote his bike. Just, come in and be like, what are you doing things? Trash things garbage. So yeah, he turned to me like. Hey Keyboard is an auto test. How am I going? All right. That's all right. So so that's where we're at. So that's where we're at. So if I was a racer. Done. So. Yeah. It was a fun time and in just to get the new bike and everything else and and all that. So thanks the thanks to everybody who bought tickets by the way if you're listening to buy tickets. Thank you appreciate that. So the GEICO tests. So I went out I did a moto quote, Unquote Emoto? I did twelve minutes on my bike. I kind of hurt my back like right away. Something happened like in the mid back area. Let's get to clinch Hell Ross is. You can't get out of the holes. So I'm like right away on my. Man Like Muscle. Right. So I'm like, okay, well I pull in gender some stretches or whatever. Because they're going to ride this coughing at some point and you got two bucks read. Yeah Yeah. Okay. So did that came in? Sat, there for a little bit eight. Some tacos did stuff. It's, and then Josh is like, Hey, we're done and it was only like a one o'clock. One fifteen, right? It wasn't. Oh, it was too too. Yeah. frigging Oregon for. Argued after. I was little. So anyways, I thought that we got on a little early. So then I got over there and the whole team was sitting there you already out on. On Schmo does bike I went on? Mumford. Spike the whole team. was there. kind of nervous. They're all watching the everyone's watching me and I have written a to the F.. The about this in two thousand and two, we got to do a magazine test. I don't know who it was. I think it was. Because I think it was Bashar. Somebody came to Red Bud and the day after the National I'm sorry. After the second motos in to that red hat red bud. Okay. They wrote all of our race bikes, Nick Way. Larry Ward Kyle. Lewis Somebody I. Think. It was I think it was Bashar, track was hammered. In PREPA, just there you go. Yeah, and so I wrote, Larry. Wards to to fifty F. that day right? Two, thousand and two Yamaha oil tank carburetor. That was the last time. I wrote it to fifty. After that I had a Y Z to fifty, two stroke. Then I got four fifty and then I. Got Rid of that and I, didn't ride until you harass me basically legally illegally harass me. Honestly, it didn't take much persuading when we agreed to do this. I, didn't know you were going to ride it gyco yeah. Oh. And you're just like, yeah, I'm going to ride it. I'm like Oh. Okay. Cool. Yeah. Because I just thought you know what? I? Mike okay, I I. Don't know what I'm doing out there. As far as testing I. don't write to d-fs, but GEICO Honda is offering me to ride their bike like I need to do this. Right like even if you know whatever and we brought Dallas over photos Dallas, ears. So Josh is like, Hey, the bikes ready. So I go over there. The whole team standing there. There's Mumford Spike. And then the kill switch has a three second thing. So if you go to shut it off a hold on for three seconds so safety things with the guys hit, it's not going to shut off. So I'm okay and I'm like what else and they're like I said, how different are these bikes like? Offsets a little different motor settings a little different. They weren't. Yeah. They don't WanNa. Tell you don't really want to tell me. So there's before you got to the area. I already left out and I go. Hey. Like. Hey, you wanNA ride both and I said, yes. But I just said, don't tell me anything. Don't tell me what the differences are just. Let me give feedback. Differences because in in the production world blind testing, that's how we do it. So I wanted to go do it too correct way. So that's what we did. So you you have a ton of time on a Honda to fifty production, yeah bike. We'll start with you because your your opinion is the only one that really matters. RV. Darvish so I wrote Mumford. It's well, let's get into schedule I. wrote him I for about ten minutes. And then I wrote Schmo does for about five or six, and then I took a break. Then argued with politics with Rv, and then I got back on sh motos for photos and video, and I did a few more laps as well on that. So, that's my schedule Iro. So I probably wrote the two bikes. Thirty minutes. Maybe Max Twelve. That's how long I think probably about thirty minutes. So what about you? So I got on Carson's bike just because Carson, I ride with Carson a little bit unknown from his he lives up not lives, but has a track up here and he's like, Hey, can you ride my bike and also before I left her like hey? You know some of these guys really fast racers, but maybe aren't the best test guy. So it'd be kind of cool if you kind of you can sign off on some of these things like, Hey, are they too far left field? Is it good? You know? So obviously, I'm not as fast as I ride different, but I can kind of Pick my way around and say, Hey, where are these guys and I know Carson and how he writes? So I took off on Carson's bike. And the first thing that I noticed is from the production Honda. There's not a lot of Torque. If you guys have a Honda to fifty, you know what I'm talking about is not a lot of meat download, but man it, it goes from the mid to top over. It has a lot of that. So this. GEICO Honda has more Torque I'm not saying it has monster Yamaha Ish Torque, but it has more pulling power down low, and then after that man that you can let this sucker. Eat from third fourth gear. I used fourth actually a lot. I. Don't know if you've got an fourth gear at all, but man, I can. Use fourth gear. Very, it's very usable, which is rare in a two fifty, like you're in third gear most the time in fourth for a short amount of time, I used fourth gear at Glen Helen a lot. So that's how usable and good the power band. So I was impressed with the engine. Honestly, like I thought, it would be a little bit faster than what it was. But for me riding a Honda most of the time, I appreciated the.

Noose found in Bubba Wallace's garage stall, NASCAR says

"Now? Mike Greenberg Bristol with you this morning. And as I said right off the top of the show, I would have loved to have started with any of those today, and we certainly will get to the mall, but we begin with an absolutely despicable story coming from the world of NASCAR. In this developing story, a noose was found in bubba Wallace's. Stall at the NASCAR race in Talladega Alabama yesterday less than two weeks after Wallace led efforts to push NASCAR to ban the confederate flag NASCAR announced the news last night well after the race had been postponed due to inclement weather, and said it was launching an immediate investigation here. was there statement late this afternoon? Nascar was made aware that a noose was found in the garage stall of the forty three eighteen. We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough. How seriously we take this heinous act! We have launched an immediate investigation and we'll do everything we can to identify the persons responsible and eliminate them from the sport. As we have stated unequivocally, there is no place for racism and NASCAR, and this act only strengthens our resolve to make the sport open and welcoming to all while himself tweeted a statement last night, which read in. In part today's despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened, and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism. As my mother told me today, they are just trying to scare you. This will not break me. I will not give enor- rely back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe. In Allah Marty Smith is covering this for us in the scene in Talladega. He joined us an hour ago. The News in Bubbas garage stall was actually seen by a member of his team. Darrell Bubba never saw it. He never saw it personally and win. That team members saw it. He alerted NASCAR. And Nascar immediately had a meeting of its senior executive staff, and they made the decision that they were going to remove this person from the sport as quickly and rapidly as possible. This was not a situation where a fan might have meandered in on this because there were no fans in the garage. So what you're looking at is you're looking at team members. You're looking at officials. You're looking at potential security. You're looking at maybe cleaning personnel that have access to these garage areas. Again! That was Marty Smith with US earlier. Lebron James among many who posted messages about this. He tweeted sickening Wallace, my brother! No, you don't stand alone I'm right here with you as well as every other athlete, I just want to continue to say how proud I am of you for continuing to take a stand for change here in America and sports at Nascar. I salute you as well. Well Sprint Cup driver Michael McDowell added. God help us the level of evil. It takes to do something like this is disgusting. This is enraging and heartbreaking all at the same time Dale. EARNHARDT Jr. tweeted simply a hope of a wins it tomorrow again. The race will be run today. It was delayed by weather yesterday, and as I bring Steven A. and Marcus into the conversation here I'll. Repeat that the area in which this was discovered, there were cameras all over it should be. Relatively easy investigation for the NASCAR officials to conduct, and we are standing by for any information live from Talladega Marty Smith will bring us anything as soon as there is any further news with that thought in mind, Stephen. We've not yet had a chance to say good morning to you I. I just want to give you the floor here. What are your feelings and thoughts as we see this story developed from last night? Well I. Mean I think that for me? Personally I'm a little bit different than the kind of sentiments that have been expressed by a lot of people, because obviously you find this reprehensible and disgusting, and it's incredibly sad, and we get all of that but there's a forgive the the figurative smirk that might end up covering my face or draping my face because to me. Me It's just folks displaying the ignorance, and the more they put it on display, the more it enlightens a lot of people in White. America about what Black America has been telling them about for so many years decades spanning centuries for crying out loud. This is not new. This is something that we've known existed for all time. This is something we know we'll continue to exist. And there is no way around it and so this there comes a point in time where you have to accept that reality one of the things that I would encourage everybody to go watch. If you get an opportunity, you can go on Netflix. You can watch that documentary thirteen by EVA do vernay along with others, sensational job of address mass incarceration in the United States, of America one of the things they highlighted. Is that under the Nixon? Administration where you're literally talking about you know White folks that are hippies and you associate them with marijuana and you associate black. Black folks with crack cocaine, and as a result of that will ultimately galvanize folks in your favor, because they'd be scared to death, and you'd be hearing words like law and order ad, nauseam that was in the sixties for crying out loud in two thousand and twenty, and we're hearing the same thing now. You just have to open your eyes. You have to pay attention to the parallels you have to. You have to pay attention to the correspondence. That's taking place right before your very eyes throughout history, we have had people that have been adroit at light laying low. Controlling the narrative, manipulating the narrative switching things to their favor, all in an effort to maintain or to retain power. It's something to kind of thing that has been taking place in. Usually they've been incredibly skilled at remaining in the dark and saying it's then it's not us, it's them. It's not us well guess what are coming to light more and more in this day and age I find that a cause for celebration, not a 'cause. You know to be saddened by anything. The I find these to be. Beautiful tops as difficult as it may be the fact that I nation appears to be becoming more enlightened than ever before and ultimately as a result. We're coming together. I find that to be a huge plus not a minus. If the ignorance has to show itself, and if the ignore, it has to showcase themselves in order for this to happen coming out of the dock to me. That's of course was celebration Marcus. Stephen. That's what I alluded to earlier man just come on out. Show us who you are, so we know how to deal with you and everybody. That's four. Right knows how to deal with you. Look listen, this is. There has been. We've been having this conversation for a long time. I mean we had this conversation we had. This conversation went capped kneeled about police brutality. We talked about racing all of them and man you. You look if you look around and social. There were people literally Oh twitter last night. Say A BUBBLE! Did this for attention? What what are you talking about like? It's not. It's not unfathomable that someone could do that. We sold Jesse's me. Make reference to that because people can conjure up things to create narratives to make people overreact. That's why saying earlier. Estimate I'm not doing this emotional. Rollercoaster I'm getting off of it right like I'm nuts and bolts to was going on. There is progress that needs to be made in this country I'm focusing on that progress that needs to be made. That's what bubble wireless is focused in on a by making his statements in Nascar. That's a lot of athletes are focused on a lot of people in society in general of focused on making sure that we draw a line between racist people and people that one good for everybody. That's the bottom line. Look for as much as this is egregious and the things that have transpired for low type. I grew up in the south light. It's not. An uncommon for me to see racist people are know what it looks like or even even be surprised or shocked about certain things that tend to happen. The bottom line is this. I'm often emotional roller coaster like if you racist just be that come out publicly and be that enlist separate that and you be a part of the minority port society that we want to get to, and we think we already are at so all of that being said I'm with Steve Day like in this bringing a lot of people to the light, and the hateful ones are fighting their battle because they see slipping away. Score you're not GonNa hear me say this very very often, but I wanNA give major major kudos to a Lotta. White folks out there in America because if it wasn't for them, protesting and marching with black individuals if it wasn't for them, you know engaging in the kind of of of you know resistance to whatever level of oppression we as black people have been feeling this nation I. Don't think some of these folks will. will be coming out I. mean listen the back. In the day. They used to wear the sheets and used to cover the identity and their faces that we didn't know who the hell they were by virtue of that now. Some black people, a lot of black people will tell you they exist in corporate America. They could be the very people that you're working for the very people that you're talking to I happen to be. Be Blessed we happen to be blessed to not certainly not have that at this company is because we've seen the actions on the part of our executives. And what have you over continuous basis? Elevated level of sensitivity that this place has shown throughout the years deserves to be commended. There's always work to do. There is no perfect place. Make no about it, but I'm incredibly proud to be a part of the Walt Disney and And specifically the ESPN family in that regard having set all of that I'm in the minority, because the reality is vast people, there's a vast number of people of African. American descent in the United States of America that feel subjugated I wouldn't go so far as to say enslaved, but feel subjugated by bosses in corporate America people that say all the right things when the cameras are rolling, but behind the scenes they engage. Eight your and the conduct. Subjugation that they devote their voiceless. They don't have a voice in that regard, green. Marcus knows exactly what I'm talking about. And so because of that because of these times that we're living, what we're seeing is a populous within the United States of America that sees the dramatic shift, and there's so appalled, and and put and taken aback by what they see transpiring that they can't hide their vitriol. They're coming out of the dock because they're being forced out of the dog. We as black people. People have to appreciate the fact that couldn't happen without a vast number of white individuals in our society standing with us and saying you know what we see where the hell you coming from. If we didn't see it before we see it now, and we're with you, so you have that other segment of the population saying wait a minute we lose some of our own here. Some of our own alternative guests and the poor in this noxious. We gotTA speak up and as a result. Of the dock again I find that a cause for celebration doesn't bother me at all. If we wore, we wore. Let's get it on. I liked that. I want to leave it there for the moment again. Marty Smith is standing by Talladega. If there is any further information on the investigation, we will have it for you immediately, meanwhile, Steven as going to stay with us here for a few more minutes, and we'll get some football conversation as we go his feelings about the Dallas, cowboys have been well documented. This should be a very big day in Dallas. We will talk about it and why and then Lebron and other NBA players have until Wednesday to decide whether or not they're going to play. What should we expect? Woge will answer that question as we continue this out. GET THEM ON ESPN. GEICO. GETS YOU ACCESS TO LICENSED AGENTS? Twenty four

"Hello and welcome everyone and we're so glad to have you today. Joining me is Carl docstater and just to give you a little background on this guy he's a member of the United. Nation, and he's the program called for the four year Fellowship Center about four years ago. He and a colleague of his started a podcast called one dish one Mike, and since then it's transformed into a weekly on air radio show, and recently he. He became a recipient of Canadian Journalism Foundation CBC. Fellowship for his. Outstanding Work I've been on his show before the ever since our show started. We've communicated back and forth, and finally it's my delight to introduce this man, and on top of that all he's an avid buffalo bills fan, so I would like to give a big severely to Mr Pro docstater You're very kind to Gaydos in the youngest log into low to Jota, what's the? What can I do? GEICO Ajayi? That translates to many Ms Carl. Just kidding There's there's a lot more in there. that I I like to introduce myself with Mitch official name is often as possible because our our language is under threat. I think that using any language like even if you only know Golly, even if you only know gateway when you're saying goodbye to someone or or something similar to goodbye, or or if you're seeing Jawa, thank someone. I think that every bit of language revitalization is is important, so so thank you for for having me on your show I have a gigantic fan. If you go into the archives, you can find an episode where we interview Andrew Shannon I may podcasting Betsy Andrew and I think that it's really just forty five minutes of meat gushing lick offend will. So but but you're worth it I mean it, it's it's really be concept. Your show that that you're doing at I'm I'm glad to be on for for something. Maybe a little outside of the box of avoid normally, so they are having beats danger. It's it's outside of the box, but i. feel like when we started the show. This is more of what we wanted. It's easy to talk about dead people because if you. You get something wrong well. They're not around to defend themselves. What's really hard for me? Is from a loving history and background is a lot of times. We try as hard as we can to point out. The the members of the six nations are still around today. There's still a vibrant part of our communities. They still contribute still here at not not like two or three of them left and on our show I have to. To purposely save the holding. The schone are instead of the haughtiness. SCHONE did and a lot of times we use the past tense. I I apologize to it now. You know when you're talking about past historical events that happens a lot, but we'd like to point out all the contributions that people have made in the past, and how the influenced our history and culture and society, and so it's just good to have somebody from today. Today that can can speak for today. I know you're just one person I. Know You don't speak on behalf of all indigenous people on the continent. I know you don't speak on behalf of everyone from the Oneida nation. You probably don't speak on behalf of your family either. It's good to have other perspectives because Caleb. I realized that we're limited in our scope. I wanted to have somebody come on. That could give me an. Update, but just what is Oneida culture like today? And what are the issues that your people are facing today? And then I also WANNA. Look towards the future a lot of times we get bogged down today's issues. Today's Oracle stuff, and as this podcast is recorded as different, but I realized that years from now decades from now hopefully, when people are still listening to you and me working back through the archives that you know we can, we can look forward and see what what does the future stand? What does the to row treaty mean for both our peoples in the future going forward. So that's a long winded. Introduction, BUT I want to turn over your Harlan just give you really open ended just give me a background about yourself and your upbringing. Yeah, thank you, thank you for the opportunity again. I think that what you said is probably key at. If if you're just tuning in if tuning in because of me than you've heard me, say this before if tuning into your recoil, ledges, mystery podcasts, and you're hearing me for the. The first time I think it is important that we're hitting on that concept. The Ngoni people are are still here and I, even like like I had to check myself I was helping my daughter my my nine year old at the time ten year old daughter. Do you a project for history? And it's it's difficult to sift through the history texts and to see them. Talk about how we were as people like, say we. We are as a people like we were still doing. Ceremonies were still. I'm literally trying to grow white corn, even as we speak like I'm. I'm sitting here. Thinking created rain last night because we're not something that their lives in a textbook sitting on sitting on a shelf somewhere, that's something that we want to bring a so having opportunity to come on with you today to to really remind people that can onto says about about living. Living History. History is something we're still living right now is super cool I. one of the reasons I like to get on. This side of the microphone is is that I don't have to talk about myself, so it's it's different since since I now you're the one that's technically behind the Mike but I mean I can say is that it's What it really pride myself on is is activity in my own community. I went and I volunteered tirelessly from a friendship center work at the forgery native. Friendship Centre by day. I volunteered there before I worked there I volunteered at the other friendship center in our region, the Niagara Regional Native Center and that for everything we do is indigenous people I. Think I think it's really evaluated on a on a community level and I. think that's something that we've actively done. Is that individuals? Success is just not the metric. That's not the measurement for for who we are as.

So I use linked in as me, but should there be a page for say my company and then a page for the CEO and the assume saying or. Does the company needed to own linked in present separate from its employees. Yeah. Absolutely. The company needs its own linked page and that's what I'm talking about don't write in the third person about the company be warm sprinkle the personality into it, and also make sure that the CEO's linked in page isn't saying something crazy about the company or one of the workers take the time to go through people's. Write ups about the company to make sure it matches. What you're branding is about it because you don't WanNa have a road convoy captain drive off into the. Fighting the fighting the the combatants out into the wilderness you you want everybody on the same message and one of the easiest things that someone can do if you are trying to help your own business with marketing is to give everybody in your company who has a social media account linked in whatever hey, could you put this in this linked to our company or our twitter handle are linked in link whatever. So that all my employees as people visit their page Adam, would you mind telling people I work at? So obviously linked in page says they work. So can you be sure to put this information in about where you work? All employees and just say, Hey, this will help the company and if the company does better, you'll do better suggested copy is terrific. Yeah. I, see the most successful companies sinclair broadcast group. Every time they advertise job. They say, we love broadcasting and we want you to work for us. They everybody who puts out a job at puts that out there and it's really effective because it shows that they love broadcast they care about their employees and it's a universal message and you don't have somebody. Say you know here's a crappy job. No it's it's a universal statement and you try to get control of it, and it's also just your other opportunities that handshake again, it's first impression and make it last year and it's so fascinating me that people work. So hard phone say linked in to say, okay. How am I going to reach all these total strangers who know nothing about me and they spend so little time thinking about their coworkers and immediate network and close longtime business had. Long longtime clients that they kind of grew up with and those clients are probably saying that I'm happy to help you with your Lincoln. You want us to to tell people use your sure we're happy to but they they're thinking about the strangers and not thinking about their friends, all of whom have a social media presence that could be a tool for your company right and you know the the ones that are the worst that are just put like. The, the actual listing of their job title and that's there is and it's not even completed may just having one or two of them and it you know you're really an opportunity for clients or you know the meetings that you have people Wanna learn about you. So they can feel like they can make a connection with you at these meetings and if you don't give them that information, it's really hard to do. Rob Atkinson. Thanks helping us with our marketing one on one segment this week it's a pleasure..

"Let me with a bad to saying isn't there a danger in market so let's look at the Peleton right. So the Peleton ad came out and in it. It looks like Louis Woman who was given the the wife who was given the Peleton gift looked almost like she was a hostage and the ad and there were huge backlash because it was fat shaming the males seemed like it was a gift to her but it was really a gift for him to have the hot wife and keep that going and of course, you know it was a huge uproar right Let me. As I recall Linda we did a podcast about the Peleton. And we asked the question was it a net win or a net loss and I believe what did rob say? Rob said it was a net loss what do we? Now. What do we have? Now, what did what was the actual outcome of that? So it turns out that. After the holiday sales been terrific, the stock is back on track and actually Wall Street. Now is saying that there's no competitor and site that can match. PELETON's value in the marketplace and all has been forgotten, and now that they're opening up our locations, they're opening their stores. which is, which is really interesting. The reason why the segmentation though. So that appeal to the core audience in a way that solidified their brand affinity for it. Right ended after nearly captured people in the marketplace. If you were to poll it though I would say people who couldn't afford the Peleton might have more negative connotations with that brand. Now than they did before because of the ad and this is the important lesson you're pointing out, which is who cares what people who aren't going to buy your product think about your product Odyssey, you can take that to the extreme but fundamentally, that's why market segmenting works is that you aren't worried about. The millennials or the Older generation boomers because if you're not if you're selling Hello Kitty..

"In its own way is affected by the relationship between the age of the consumer and how that consumer in Iraq with their brand. So let's exercise I'm going to ask you about buying a new car rob are you with me? Okay would you produce the same new car ad for millennials Gen xers and boomers in Linda what would be different about each ad we'll start with rob because he needs more time together. No. I would not produce the same ad because different age groups have different opinions about the car. So even if you take same car Toyota Camry, a younger person might like it because of the the echo features in it and the stylistic nature of it. But the older person the boomer might like it because of the safety features. So you're going to have to appeal to each of those different audiences in a different way. Absolutely. So we always talk about having a unique selling proposition. So what does appeal to someone who's twenty-five or someone who's just starting their family versus someone that's Retired and they want to buy some luxury car that could also work for even a younger demographic. The positioning should absolutely be different and what's great now is that you can actually do that. So there's so much technology out today that allows you to customize your messages depending on who you're talking to, and we're able to look at behaviors and attitudes of people to really be able to. Customize a message that that resonates with them. That motivates them gauges them, and four does a great job with this. So they'll run the same at they'll have the same car for sale but multiple different ads. So a younger group might be the car might be read because it's flash, right but the older group, it might be a darker color or white collar or more neutral color you know. So they do play to this all the time Yup. I mean, and obviously they they're very good at figuring out who their demographics are depending on what the car is in the making the model in the year whatever the case may be I'm sure that the most we'll take auto. Auto Manufacturers as an example if you have a specific model, I'm sure they have a cork audience that they're focused in on but that. Product may also apply to other audiences or could apply. So there could be an an extension opportunity for them to market that to a different audience said Heidi to how do you do that to your point you have to really customize your message and you definitely have to segment your message and be able to appeal to them in the way that makes sense to them. You know also though, but the thing about segmentation, which is also the benefit is it's much more cost effective, right? So if if I'm segregating my segmenting my Into a smaller group right that is going to be much more targeted the ads Ben's going to be much more focused, and it's going to yield greater return on investment because I understand my audience what motivates them more and I think we're seeing a lot of that with our customers now, right? Absolutely..
