What the Second Amendment really meant to the Founders
"You know, in my intro and then earlier segment early in the show I was talking about The primary purpose of the Second Amendment, according to the founding fathers, and I said My piece told listeners what I thought that the primary purpose of the Second Amendment, according to people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, What is in Mark Walters Mind the primary purpose. Of the Second Amendment. According to the phone and fathers. I love this because it's so provocative and I love to be provocative, and I'm gonna answer that with a question. Here's my question to you. We just talked about what Biden wants to do. Virginia the first time the Democrats took power in Virginia, for example, in 25 years. What's the first thing they did They chucked 12 Gun control bills down there. People throw up. Eight of them passing was signed into law. Joe Biden's first deal is gun control. I'm gonna answer the purpose of our founding fathers in the second Amendment with this question to you. What is it about their communist Marxist socialist masquerading his former Democrat agenda that requires you to be disarmed? Yeah. Very good point. And it would appear that great minds think alike because well, you know, we are way have Yeah, Me and George were in the world. Good company together. Way. Agree with each other. Martha. I guess the question is You know what is going to happen now? I mean, I look at it. It's like Texas that are actively talking about succession. Oh, yeah. You know, California's got bills by others, three different deals. They want to split that stable. You know, he was a really simple, quick Virginia. You know, I spent many a graduated college in Virginia. Lots of friends there lived in three different cities in Virginia know it well. It's a gun toting gun, love and freedom, love and bright red State. You've got two counties up there that control everything included with Richmond. The rest of the state is bright red. Why don't we have any electoral college at the state level? Okay? Yeah, Which would be which would kind of solve these problems. Where you New York State's a prime example. You get rid of that cess pool in Manhattan in the boroughs and New York State is a freedom loving, bright red state. Upstate New York's bright red Yep. Okay? Absolutely, you know, and you get rid of I mean term limits. Term limits scared me a little bit on Lee, because, well, what happens with term limits is you get the next term. Someone knows that's there. They could do anything they want. They're no longer held accountable to the voters that they don't have to hope if voters are hold them accountable. You know that old So what We do have term limits. We have elections. That's true, But they turn out the way they do in states like New York and California. Because we've got to a point. We have two or three cities controlling the rest of the state that needs to be looked at. Yeah, Georgia just gave you two of the worst senators in this country's history. And this is a bright red state. That isn't gonna be blue anytime soon. You look at the legislative makeup in the state and their redistricting coming up in July after this legislative session, you want to see Democrat controlled the state level the state Don't think of the rest of my life. And yet we just handed you too. The bluest worst of the worst senators, not because any red counties flipped blue. Nothing did They were able to siphon off more votes in two counties not being the cabin Fulton County And their six swing states. Basically, that have to fix their election systems of the way they do things in Michigan and Georgia. There's two of them right there, but nobody knew George was one of these states until that, you know, action. You see, that's why that's why people George, I would have never Guest. I wish Now, I will say this that we've been watching Stacey Abrams here for the last two years. Prior to the election in November. We all knew what she was up to. And here's the thing. I watched her vote on local news that night. Now here she is a resident of Atlanta. Hmm. And here she is. Dropping off an absentee ballot in a little mailbox been in downtown Atlanta. What? Why are you standing in line like the rest of us? Okay. That's where fraud comes from. Yeah, no signature verifications. Everybody gets mailed about it and they could go drop it in. No, no, no. No. Where I come from absentee ballots are for people like you who are serving their country overseas that need an absentee ballot Kids in college that can't make it back to their district to vote. My mom and dad who might be in Florida, and they're Georgia residents because they're they're from that's an absentee ballot. So those those issues are being addressed.

It's volunteers with We heart Seattle in the homeless are caught right in the middle of all of this. Andrea Suarez is the founder of this nonprofits who says For the past few weeks, they've been out to several parts like Denny, Dijon and Ballard Commons, cleaning up trash with consent from the homeless at these encampments and have been Trying to get people connected with services and shelters. This is also attracting activists who disagree with their methods, Suarez says. They are being followed to parks and harassed. I think it's schoolyard bullying, and they are treating it like some kind of turf war. If some people early on ran with this notion that I was another one of these white supremacists hate groups that was out there to demonize the homeless community, which was farthest from the truth. All I wanted to do is help pick up trash and interact with people in a meaningful way. He shot to some of these activists, but no one has got back to us. So far.

The Power of Deep Listening
"Welcome again friends. It really is good to be together. And i thought i'd start by just naming a compelling question that so many people i know around the globe are reflecting on right now and that is what will bridge the divides and i know you know what i mean. What will bridge the divides knew what will help us. Humans of all beyond our separate cocooned realities that end up creating so much distrust and fear and violence in this talk. What i'd like to do is focus on one key way. Each of us can contribute to evolve in consciousness to volving our own consciousness in our species consciousness. And that's cultivating cassidy for deep listening. I mean just imagine if people from different political parties and groups and nations in conflict actually did a little bit of training and practice so that they could little bit more. Listen to each other to get some sense of being able to look through another. Is henry david. Thoreau described as the greatest miracle possible relate to look through each other's is it is possible though we have this built in capacity to listen and we can cultivate listening and of course it is difficult so for starters. I thought i'd give you a couple of examples of the kinds of challenges we face the first cartoon That i'll tell you about a couple sitting together watching tv. And she saying to him. You know you only hear the things you wanna hear and he responds a beer. Sounds lovely thank you. Second cartoon job interview the employers asking mister jefferson. Where do you see yourself five years from now response. I'd say my biggest weakness is my listening skills. I know you get the idea. It's kind of like. I think calvin coolidge said it best that no one is ever listened themselves out of job so by extension. We don't listen ourselves out of relationships. This theme I'm imagining many of you. It's not only something you're aware of. It's something you're consciously working on. I know for myself. It's a life process and it's so interesting that now and then i get more conscious of. Oh this is really really important. this matters. and then i- rededicate. It's really energizing to rededicate. I love that so if you feel like this is the right time for you to deep in your commitment to how you listen right close in with the people right around you. It creates a group energy to do that together and it helps our world so a key. Understanding is that the capacity to listen is not just another skill on the checklist of it. You know it's really a dimension of presents being able to listen is a dimension of presence. it's a intrinsic facet of evolving consciousness and it impacts all dimensions of living and you might just consider inner listening you know. How are we going to be intimate with their own being. How are we gonna tuned to the state of our hard and acknowledge when there's loneliness s or when there's fear or longings so inner listening is how we become more at home with ourselves then of course listening to each other. There's no way to have real intimacy connection and understanding unless weaken listen and then in our contemporary society. I really do believe that trainings to listen. Ringing people from conflicting sides together to practice listening will give a gateway for more collaboration. Were understanding then. Of course terms of we want to call it the spiritual path. It's those moments where we stop all doings and we become profoundly septa quiet open. It's at listening presence. That really those are the moments that we touch and taste the mystery that we receive beauty that we start to perceive intuit. That formless timeless awareness. It's really home. So it really gives us a sense of the sacred some naming the different levels and we'll be exploring primarily. How do we listen. More deeply with those were engaged with whoever you spend time talking with the most and maybe we'll just pause here for a moment of do several reflections through our time this first reflection and when we do them if it helps you to close your eyes please do. It always helps me just to take a moment and bring to mind someone you know who is a really good listener.

Fanne Foxe, ‘Argentine Firecracker’ at center of Washington, D.C. sex scandal, dies at 84
"Age, the name Fanny Fox means something. The one time stripper gained insane notoriety after she jumped into the tidal basin on an October night in 1974. She was in a gown the car she'd been in Had been pulled over by police and the man she was with made the story even bigger. He was Congressman Wilbur Mills, a Bible Belt politician who also led the powerful House Ways and Means Committee. That night, assured Fanny Fox his place in the annals of political scandals. And we've just learned today that Fox died recently at the age of 84. Let's learn more about her role in D. C History with Washington Post obituary editor Adam Bernstein. Hey, Adam, Thanks so much for being with us. And at this point, most people in Washington probably don't know anything about Fanny Fox, who was she It's a good question. Thank you so much for having me on well. The reason she was such a big name here is because of her involvement. As you said with Wilber Mills. He was the some have said the second most powerful man in Washington on Lee. We superseded by the president sort of it in the early 19 seventies, Wilbur Mills was chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, which controls a lot of money, and he had been in Congress for many decades. By that point, so he had this reputation of Um, accumulated reputation for food for power. And he also was from Arkansas, the Bible belt, and he had also cultivated this reputation as a as a workaholic. A grind. Um, a man of utter rectitude. And so what happened was, uh, you know, nothing would have been revealed of this affair, at least publicly. Except for this bizarre episode is you mentioned at the Washington the title based Mackenzie's senior The Jefferson Memorial. And on October 7 1950 74 He who? Wilbur Mills, who had been seeing Fanny Fox at her burlesque, Cole, You're in D. C. I was with her one night two in the morning and they get into this weird accident near the at the Tidal Basin. Basically, they're in a car without lights on the police. See them, They stopped him. And Fanny Fox. Or, you know, on impulse jumps out of the car and into the title base, And she starts you know, wrestling with the policeman who goes in after her. It's discovered that her face is all batter that Mills who were these Coke bottle glasses, His glasses are smashed. And is reeking of alcohol, and the TV crew happened to be nearby as well. So it's just perfect storm of of of politics and media, and this is right at the time of Watergate as well. So everybody was looking for the next scandal. So what ultimately happened to Wilbur Mills? Then what was the code on Fanny Fox? Good question. So Wilbur Mills survives. Oddly enough, the next election he goes, He goes back to Arkansas and sort of in this folksy manner tries to play it off. You know, his famous quote at the time is One should never drink champagne with a foreigner that that's the lesson he took away from him. And and you know, weirdly enough. He survived with his wife. She seems to back in publicly. But you know, right after winning the election and seemingly surviving by by a thread appears on her, appears with Fanny Fox again on stage in Boston, Fanny Fox and parlayed all the publicity into this lucrative career on the burlesque circuit. And he goes on stage. It's It's just terrible embarrassment captured on TV of all places again, and his career is them finished. He I think he resigns. He spends it goes into recovery. Disgraced from public office, but then spend the rest of his life. He lived a to least another 15 20 years, basically helping other recovering addicts like himself. Fanny Fox have Ah Less of Ah, a much harder time of it. She Prospers for a couple years winds up down in Florida. I couldn't find out that much about the family didn't want to cooperate, but I was able to look up various records. She she got a couple of all things degrees. Including one you know, in marine science of all. Wow. And but I couldn't figure out I couldn't figure out what she did with her time. Her lawyer didn't say your family wouldn't talk. Um I don't know. She had jobs or just How she struggled by and we will just have to live that mystery. Continue, Adam, because our time is up, though, clearly we could talk about this for a very long time. Thanks So much for being with us. Thanks. That's

It wasn't until wednesday may ten that a break finally came in the case that day. A man named joey saint augustine told police at cornell had killed genie he promised he could lead investigators to the body on the condition that his identity remained a secret. Joey agreed to meet officers in downtown richmond and direct them to jeans remains the next day authorities pick joey up and they drove to a church. Just outside of richmond behind the building was a construction zone and a patch of forest. Joey led police into the trees. When they got to the spot where genie's body was supposed to be. However there was nothing but dirt and twigs. Joey was dumbstruck. Just a few days ago. He dropped her off there so he could get rid of the evidence now. Genie's body had vanished as honest. Joey's confusion was. Investigators looked at him with suspicion. They wondered whether joey was just trying to throw them off the trail. Perhaps he thought it was fun to interfere with an ongoing investigation either way. The detectives felt like they'd been made into fools. There was one detective though who thought joey too much to be making it all up after all. It didn't seem like joey had anything to gain by lying instead of scrapping the lead. That officer asks joey if he'd be willing to let the police bunk his apartment then invite pernell to try to elicit a confession. Joey was reluctant. He claimed brunell would kill him if he found out he was working with the police to help. Ease fears authorities. Promised they would be close enough to intervene. If cornell got violent ultimately joey agreed.

He drove over eight hundred miles to stewart florida. Where he moved in with a family member law enforcement had no idea where he'd gone. The sting operation was an utter failure. Joe we didn't seem like a trustworthy witness and without a confession. Investigators doubted anything he said was true for decision to skip town was obviously incriminating but authorities still believed he could be innocent. They didn't even try to track him down after the failed bugging. It seemed to denise carey and ben that virginia beach police just gave up. But the people who love jeannie refused to back down. genie's parents still call the station numerous times a day for updates. They drove around. Virginia beach and richmond for hours hoping to find genie's car either driving on the road or park somewhere even though joey told police. Genie was dead. Her parents still held out hope that they would find her live. Denise on the other hand was sure that pernille had killed her friend. Police had yet to find her body but denise felt certain that if genie was alive she would have heard from her by late. June kerry also believed. Her daughter was gone for good. She wanted to make funeral arrangements. But her husband ben trying to talk her down. He had faith that his daughter was out there somewhere. Still breathing. Months passed with no word from police.

They still weren't trying to track down cornell who denise carey and ben all new was the one to blame for her disappearance as july nineteen eighty nine wound to a close kerry was so desperate for answers that she hired a psychic she had never looked to myth or magic for answers before but she felt like she had no other options. Carries decision is not uncommon considering her circumstances a two thousand nineteen study by murray state university psychologists christopher hanane found that those who felt desperate due to uncertainty engaged in superstitious behaviors and. Desperation was a predictor for use of superstitions. Belief like these can help people feel like they have more control over the world. even though carry wasn't normally one to seek help from a fortune teller she was desperate and it felt like one of the only remaining avenues for information about her daughter. The woman told kerry what she already knew. Her daughter was dead. However the psychic also claimed to have an idea of where genes body was hidden. She said genie was somewhere near stream fed by the tides. And that in her vision. She saw a milk close by.

"Yeah I bought one of those got back into. Got Back Yeah. I loved racing. Then then I. I've been racing every it's crazy that you got a top ten overall at saddleback obviously place you know well and everything else but still great resulting in two years later. You're totally done. Yeah you got a ninth and then two years later. You're done racing. That's it and really it was. It was a hard swallow because I wanted to race and at the time I was really getting better and you still. You got to think what's realistic. Yeah what is really GONNA have? Wha- right what's going to happen here right so I. So let's get ninth overall. Does that mean I'm GONNA get a factor? I probably not no and later I'll say and you know That just think Mickey got a factory hundred one to one hundred. I could have been you. Yeah I out but I was. I found out later lots years later. The Suzuki was never going to hire me now. Never because of what caused really not going to happen really. I wouldn't have thought across. People are for the most part you know your speed on. The track is the determining factor a lot of times. But but I'll say that they had a different time back then. I mean and I'll say you know my wife's Japanese okay and she could tell you that Japanese are pretty racist against most a lot of people say not. Shouldn't say this is a blanket. Generalize but for me at that time. They weren't in the early times or different. Yeah yeah no matter what and I knew that there was a point where you know that the bikes hold you back so much so I never going to go win a couple of races and I knew that was not going to have. Yeah so for me. I and doesn't bother me because I have. I had a great life. What what writing for Mitch and what happened to me in those days was something that I couldn't couldn't have slated better. Yeah it was perfect the way it all fell the way everything fell together. Oh that's interesting was you. What do you think your greatest race was was there a local racer so racer Deanza Cycle Party? I won like five race in a row. They're five big purse races. Yeah and made up just a killing was johnny territories. The answer right wasn't always ending do. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Holly was in here last for the show talking about Indian dunes. Yeah yeah all of those guys wrote there and see. That was always a thing you had the sand guys like and then there was they had the one. Gorman okay because I went to Gorman a few times before yeah but it's a little bit Saint Mary. Yes okay all right. I never quite understood that being from being from Canada. I never quite the. Yeah the the movie studios did a lot there okay. And where was the ends of them? The answer was like Marino Valley Reno. So when you're going let's say sixty freeway okay from riverside young out in the hills out there. So that's where was corona raceway? Right right off the freeway that golf course you can see when you're on the fifteen going towards Mitch's place right before the ninety one which way on the fifteenth year in West on the fifteen okay so north southwest. You looked writings. Excuse me in the ninety one ninety one ninety one. Yeah West Look West. And they're on the right side there was. There's a horse. Yeah that's where it was. Yeah Okay Right. There was no yeah okay. And so corona ratio. It was amazing and the whole time he lived in high desktop keefer. Preston Jefferson High Desert true. Yup for sure that's funny. Desert was the washing machines and the dead bodies that they were all still all hang left. They're all that shit that he loves. Got It man. I wish we had more time. We got ready for the pulp showy pistol starting in forty five minutes. Celta love the you some more bird? Who's the fastest who is the u? This'll be the trivia question for you. You'd be the answer to this fast. So cal guided never make it quote unquote. You might be the answer for that. Know who was? Who was the answer them? Who who's WHO's the guy. Well you have to to me like a Jeff Jennings. Yeah would be the Guy. Okay because he never got a factor your. I'd never let something happened and kind of went away You know I mean but yet he was amazing like the guy or Turner could be an answer. Ron Turner very good attorney road. I mean he just never got that factor. But I don't even know that he wanted because like you say then so good and then locally pot I did then finished off ten the nationals twice and didn't really care yeah I mean it was.

Of course you know surgeries wasn't what what it is now so I was taking shots every two months going to on So I could rise couldn't couldn't couldn't impossible. What do you remember about a young Mitch? Payton like what are you? He was the first of all. How many times would you guys have done things back? Then that would get you arrested today. Like one hundred. Yes he he just had no fear. Anything just like you know it. Didn't it just didn't matter? We go into restaurants and do crazy stuff and act like immediate. I mean stuff that now I look back and go. Wow happy but then it was fun. Yeah admit Choi was around. It was a maniac. I mean Troy Did short painting when you met him or was he. Yeah he's racing and starting to paint. He lived in a garage and corona okay and paint a helmet painted. All of this stuff for us. Mitch would give him to paint. But he had no business Mitch Charlie Race Razor Fun Guy. Was He always kind of like out there? A little bit okay. So it hasn't changed that but he was a great starter. Always START UP FRONT. And then somehow like beer would kick in because the night before he probably was out getting the hamlet a little and pretty soon troy's going backwards but he was always out front early. When does he show you like this thing? Called Ero visor like and you just go. Whatever did yeah he he he he came up with some mean he had some cool stuff but he had some weird. Those visors must have made so much money. You you're probably forgot. We had them all of our helmets. so Mitch. Hard worker smart guy. Just I a little bit your sure and I mean well ruthless. In a lot of ways we had he'd have screwdriver fights everyone so where he get mad and he'd sling a screwdriver like in the wall. Like pretty close to you. He never did to me because I think he was scared of a little me and him into it once up at a split Pea Anderson. Okay come back with a race and he was doing his usual. Dickin- around doing something stupid. He wasn't supposed to and. I said look you do that again. And I'M GONNA throw you over that fence on. Offense was right next to the free Bob where he goes. You aren't going to do that. Bob He did it again. I picked him up out of his wheelchair and I pushed him over the fence and I took his wheelchair back to the van and left him. That's Awesome Orleans twenty when you're calm and not being idiot. I'll put you back in your chair. Stay there I don't care there's so many stories about paying back in the day head dares like the nothing for him and troy. We're always dare each other. Do some stupid. They stole some Saad from jump or something right for the East right front where they needed grass role sawed up. And you would think like somebody would look at the you know literally. It was in front where everyone was watching. What are they doing it up on rolling into and then they couldn't take Mitch to jail so he had to drive. These cops made him drive with a cop escorted him like huck dumb in same stuff like that. This is the of pro circuit and obviously husqvarna. He you know he attached himself. He's getting you supporting everything else. Did you think you'd be successful as he is today? Did you always do you? Did you see the genesis or the roots of this guy obviously eighty-six he gets haunted? Pipe and things blow up from there. But you're there before then are you well. I know that Jodi from eight would always tell him. You need to stop work on these Japanese and Mitch is he. Now they're you know they're got a new Bal and this and that and you know finding this and obviously you see what happened but I figured Mitch would be successful because he was going to work and you know just like today you see the guy he gets hurt. Tanny leaves it ninety one and the mechanics for the race team. They I mean there are hard guys. They're working at all there for one Golden. That did you ever. Do you ever remember saying like Oh. I'm going to have a team one day or though he'd never know never got that far. When did you meet jody? And Jimmy Macanese guys back saying. They kind of helped me a lot. You weren't dude. You were like as a kid growing up in Canada. You were in the magazines ton. Yeah they loved you yes. Yeah and that helped me you know. I think I look back. Sometimes I go. I didn't want to be known as the black kid that's racing wanted to be known as a racer but that helped me get to where I could have just been another guy when you talked about speaking about being African American or black Speak does it. When did you start seeing racism like you said not back then but is this pro days like this kind of stuff where your local and national to you like that one in Florida people that seems odd given and what are you doing here and Like at the superman spectators racers panics but spectators. Yes motocross back then the pits. You are in a kate. Know this but you didn't have vans and stuff around. We'll the end. Yeah Vince Cage and you had a four by six foot area. That's where you put all your toolbox. All your stuff was in that area and people around you are around the outside and people could walk up and say something. Yeah and people would snip but for me. Just hear it a little for me. I learned a long time ago because my dad and what my dad grew up in. I mean I'd I grew up in the dead. South went through all kinds of racism. The real stuff well like diving in a pool. Everyone in the pool gets out except for him. Oh really yeah me. Kinda stuff you hear about this but it's unbelievable for me it meant nothing gets as I don't care I mean 'cause I always try and tell myself that there's only a few people that I put stock into it. They say something about me. That will hurt me otherwise I don't you know who are you to tell me some wasn't there another African American guy. What was his David Maclean with Maclean? Maclean Robert Mrs there. He they had an article in one. Racer X I think. That was a while ago with this guy but David Maclean was really good. Yeah I remember being. Yeah so the League is they. Let you test them. Bikes and stuff. You got to be around him and and that helped me a lot of doors and and I'll say like now I look back and I would tell kids today that you have to. You have to speak about yourself. Yeah and I was never that guy. Yes never that guy to do that. Yeah I always figured if I did good enough is GONNA help. Yeah that's the way it is. Yeah and I was never good at it. I didn't want the spotlight on me and I just wanted to go do my thing and and you know. Hopefully someone take notice but you can't be that way. Yeah Yeah Yeah Well. The guys would have helped you for sure. Yeah as far as that goes back right Interesting to they loved you man. You're all I remember all the time interview and he's coming back knee hurts. He's coming back. Yeah so the last results in the vote was your ninth at Saddleback. Five hundred good result. What happens after that? Do you keep racing. Have I think that was the end of Pro Circuit? One thousand nine hundred five I if I remember correctly raised some local stuff about Honda. Where your needs your knee? My knee was bad. Now by that time had had a couple of surgeries to and it just would swallow up and just get really bad and and like you said. The technology wasn't so great yellow it The doctor said look. You gotta quit so race. I think. Eighty five a little local eighty six touch eighty seven. I got a cow and wrote it a couple of Times said doctor had done. Yeah you you're having trouble walking interviews and I'm like I got to be done and so I just said and I just like. How old were you at that point? I think I was twenty three. Yeah so I was. GonNa say he's Kinda young to be done raising. Yeah and I just decided like I just gotta be overtime as lulled or not but even still twenty five twenty five got to be done and at the time I hit start working for my friends. Oh you were doing down short. Wow after when I first got hurt you were at that place from eighty four until until I left for Husky. Yeah Oh shit yeah yeah But so that was the actual source of income to the point where you're very and But for me like I. The doctor said you start riding bicycles. You GotTa Start Walking. Don't run you know for me. That's what I did. I started riding bicycles in and trying to get my niece stronger. And it's been better never actually had a surgery on again. I know I've had. Oh more than Oh okay. So I've had to on the other one. Yeah so But Karla like meniscus Forty L. Unease just the usual right. Do boost up right But I didn't ride from that time. Eighty six I think I wrote the Elsinore Grand Prix Gareth Myles Garrett called me or my gear called me and asked me to do some with some race that rex and John Mara did it was like a VAT race at Paris. Okay and I think was one thousand nine hundred ninety three. Yeah and so I went and got a Yamaha from him like on a Thursday. And then raced. It had no idea arm pump like Oh yeah and got killed and I was like I'm over this now. Mara race down the world vets number one on one hundred troy. Yeah and one. I remember like ninety ninety. Three and then I raced again in ninety six. I raise the Elsinore Grand Prix. On on thousand five he called me and said hey you WanNa yes sure.

Appreciate an also spoke to have my in studio guests for this one on one podcast former Southern California. Hot Shoe Factory Husqvarna Ryder. At one point I believe now working backward Husqvarna in the marketing end of things Andy Jefferson. What's up Bro? Show how are you? I'm wonderful how `bout you are coming in. Yeah Hey we had a good ride today on beautiful. I've really loved it. Yeah you're a big mountain bike guy road bike and mountain bike or mountain both out and we ride at lunch every day. I try to put miles in and just have a good time with it you you. You put a lot of miles and when you were racing. Were you a big trainer or is this something that came later. No we always. I always trained. I was because I I think for me when I was racing. I had to train because I wasn't talented. Let's say I mean so. I had to be in better shape and luckily for me I love training love running at the time and I love bicycling did a little bit of everything so from years of motoring. How is your body now? Like for my body's okay. My knees are a little bit. Yeah a little bit suspect sometimes but yeah my body's pretty good too too bad you were trying to new Husqvarna e bike. That's coming out in the fall. Our balancing that. We have some tests bikes over here. They just playing around with and and you know firstly because you have the intense. I and I'm not much of an e bike guys. I WanNa go to a guy as a lot of miles on them and got to ride with you today and see how the differences maybe in the versus what I have and and Yeah so we're just doing some testing on the bikes Yamahas. One coming out too. So yeah I think that's an avenue were some of the. Oem's are looking at you know. Hey what can we do here? So I think it's the next step for people you know you have a dirt bike and maybe you don't WanNa go out train. Yeah and you want to just go ride and to me. The e bikes the perfect. I mean and I'll tell you this is only my third right on it and after my first to ride I was kind of like I don't really don't but after today had a great time. Yeah we we hammered some trails. Pretty good and perfect if you do that and you made that comment when we were stopped you said out here on a regular bike. You'd be suffering. is unless you're elite elite. Guy. You'd be suffering if you on a regular bike and this just puts the fun and that's exactly it right like you're still getting a good workout. Think my heart rate today was like one forty five or something. So you're getting a good workout and you're able to go much further and have more fun and then you know you're not suffering and then tomorrow you can go back and ride again. Yeah didn't suffer. Yeah and and still you know we all try to run our heart rates and we probably all do too much heart rate. Doesn't have to be high to get a good work. You need to be at a steady PACE PACE. Today was perfect. Yeah like my buddy Paul per season shape and he's got a he's got an e bike any runs it in trailer boost because he has so much fun for me. I'm trying to lose weight. I'm trying to get better shape. You're in great shape so for me. I run an echo because I want to suffer. I want to lose weight. I WANNA grind right but there is that option late in rides and we had one section today that I hated and I told her I hate it. I just bumped up the trail. I got through the section. That's uphill technique techy rock stuff. And then I was able to go back down to ego and it's a perfect example of why he bike works great right and like. I said just like you're saying is for those people that you know. You're not out there. You don't you're not going to try and be next triathlete the marathon guy and all this. Cr- you just want to go ride and have fun. That's what is right. Husqvarna marketing for you. How long have you been there for been well? I was with the original. Let's say Husqvarna owned by BMW. Three years I started there in two thousand ten okay and then the company was sold to the corporation or Peer Industries owns. All of it was sold. I think in two thousand thirteen twelve thirteen and then so I moved over there so now if you WANNA count total. I've been there about eight or nine years. Which is I always think it's funny because you made your name riding Husqvarna against Japanese brands. When they were no longer the Great Husqvarna. Everybody grew up with and you were alone guy on Husky and then you end up working for years later. It's a full and for me. You know an like to be back with Husky and just the linear to the name. That was when I had a chance to get this job. I just said I have to do it right. I and it wasn't like I had my previous job for twenty seven years. I didn't have to go anywhere and I made pretty good money. Yeah and I worked for Office Products Company. Okay HOLD COPIERS. Fax Machine that kind of stuff and it was a friend of mine's a my childhood friends families visit early. Then they sold out okay and I didn't have to leave but when this came up and a guy your roots. I don't like I even talked to my wife and I said look. I really WANNA do this. I'm I'm like Oh copiers and I'm over this right now and I want to get back into the industry and luckily I got a job. Yeah so now when they were switched from BMW ownership and by the way those BMW LOOKING. Husqvarna were underrated. Yeah that's cool. Look W out. Yeah but when they switched over. Ktm were you nervous about losing your job where you come to you like. Were you stress in a little bit? Not a little bit but not much I I was and let me say for me and it's weird. I guess I've been in the right place at the right time. That's basically what it was. I was the guy at the time I did all the parts for Husqvarna and I'm GONNA call it. Bmw Escobar all parts all accessories. Yeah all the after sales so all that stuff had to be moved. Yeah so they I mean in a way. They couldn't get rid of me wherever I was lucky. I so I did all that. I made all that move from the stuff from it was up in New Jersey. Oh okay all down to Ohio Imon Tori and stuff away. That's obsolete all that stuff so then I came into the office and then it was like what am I gonNa do right John Eric. Burleson came to me and says hey we we need you to continue with this for now but we need an offered manager for the Husky Road team. And I'm like do you WanNa do that. Great Heck Yeah. That was last. Oh that's cool though. I don't think I remember you doing that. Yeah Yeah I mean I did it for Kimmy Wagons Timmy. Andrew Delong won the National Enduro Championship for the first time since nineteen six ski so since like Terry Cunningham Terry Alaska Paul. I pulled out exactly. It was pretty good and but I got to champion. Jacob Argue about one a championship from that year and I did it for like a year and a half almost two years and but the hard part was at the time I was still doing the part so There was one year that I traveled. Forty three weekends out of the really. All your wife's just at Fox the facts and copier writing and so that was kind of tiring and then it came up. They needed immediate guy because they didn't have anyone so I said sure and Timmy. Was there became the team manager or off road and I went over to media. How do you like the media things how do you? How do you enjoy that? I tell people every day. It's another one of those things in the right place the right time. It's the greatest job in the company. I really yes like today. I get to talk about dirt bikes bicycles. I get to do that every day. Yeah and someone pays me or I get to go riding right my boss. I can ride all. Yep Go to the he. He inspires us. He says go to the track and go ride. You're not talking about Moen Tom Owen. He's inspired you. I don't know if those words us with Tom Muskie. Yeah he's he's really a he's a different guy but he's one of those people like he makes me laugh. I have so many Moen Stories. Katya when you get in with him. He's the nicest guy from the outside G I get him with him. He's like your job is to go riding. Yeah take people right so as much as I can. I take my guys. We variety whether it's street bikes or dirt bikes out ever the we all know. Katie must've owned by the same company. And certainly had some Husqvarna people yell at me over the years for because I'm just like look Katie. Anderson Rides a Katie. And so what? We don't need to get into that. But how much different? How much differing philosophies or or divisions are there between Katie? I'm an Husqvarna when it comes to media duties for you you in the KTM guy. I don't even know well it would be and that's the thing now. I'm the Guy Oh you are. Atm Guy Gas Gas Guy. I'm the Husqvarna one okay. So there isn't really any now. There is now so I felt like when they made. Roger like the overseer Katie Mogo Husqvarna logo and. They'll soon have a gas gas. I would imagine I felt like when they did that with Roger. They relaxed their philosophy of like. Hey we're two different company right and I think at first they were trying to establish what what Husqvarna was going be. Yeah and it was really. I mean we were adamant we weren't allowed to park next to each other. We weren't I mean. Even though we work together you see till but outwardly wanted to make sure some kind of separation. We couldn't talk about the Waikato's thing that would happen. Somebody's I got a few things and I said I don't care right. You can't fool me. That's right donges by Jason. And you're one hundred percent right it is. It's the same but our philosophies in marketing are today are different wholly opposite so with. Ktm is like the Color Orange It's ready to race. It's in your face. It's I'm GonNa Win Barn Husqvarna completely on the other spectrum of where the fun guys like. We want almost boutique. We WanNa be fun we want. We don't want we're racing WANNA win. There's no doubt about it. But by the same token we want to go on the desert and take a bunch of Ri- and that has nothing to do with racing. And when you look at Jason as a as a start versus you guys like a different Dean Wilson Right.

"jefferson" Discussed on Talking Tech
"Okay so it's an a day on talkie text chatting red-green is GonNa Grill Jefferson Graham. I'm in Los Angeles and Shannon is in the Washington DC area. That's right we're both quarantining. So Jefferson I've been thinking of you under these quarantine conditions. I just know that you're a person who is constantly out taking video photographs. Interviewing people podcast. How have you been holding up in just about six weeks? Quarantine Rough I. I went out last week And I went to the beach and I photographed and I got a lot of grief from my mother and my wife on it but I really wanted to. Just get out again. The idea was that I started this little video project of just pictures of waves period. Just waves no talking no music nothing but waves and I read the two beaches rope and so I went down and photograph them to mice shock. There were hundreds of people. They're having a good time mid week. So that's not the image that we've been been told but I really missed out there with a camera and I can't wait to do more of it and and sit in a restaurant that's what I want more than anything else. Yeah it's been really difficult for a lot of people and I think it's probably I wanted to know if he felt a little concerned or how you were feeling when you were taking the picture to the people on that really crowded breach. What was it like for you emotionally? It was I thought there it is you know and But I stood far enough away that I wasn't getting very close. The football game through me seeing those about fifteen young boys playing football tackle football on the beach did not seem like the wisest thing in the world to do right gotten into wanting to be attacked journalists. And what was your first assignment but had a huge impact on you in the world attack reporting. So it's a two fold question will first of all remember that when I was thirteen. I got my first camera and my first guitar. So that that set me down the path and I've always been into new technology. I was one of the first to have a VCR so thirteen hundred dollars. I spent for VCR and loved every minute of it because I was a TV fanatic. A Mazer and so I covered td for many years here USA Today before I covered TV. I covered the birth of home video of at the Hollywood reporter. So I I was the cable. Tv video editor and so is in detect. They are on all laser discs in all the new things and so I said I got tired of covering TV. There was a beat open for covering tech. I raised my hand from the first day. I did something. I don't remember what the article was but I knew that was it and that was twenty years ago and you've never looked back. Never looked back some of the highlights was going to interview the founders of Google. At at a time that I was so comfortable in my body that I went to the interview in green shorts in Orange. T shirt something today. That's fantastic worry about your fashion show. I want hear more about your fashion choices in those early years Well there was no video camera. Running Didn't care now. Now it's always a a plane shirts but naps Yup. A t-shirt just doesn't cut it. I think that's right. Yeah I I was on zoom call in time in quarantine where someone was presenting an award to a colleague of Mine and they were wearing sweatshirt and right. Now I'm just wearing a t shirt so I'm not WanNa talk but it is. I think it's still important to dress a certain way. When you're on a zoom call. Yeah I would agree dress for success. Totally totally so Shannon Rate Green Washington D. C. Actually Virginia.

And how the two types of writing compare and the careers. Yes and also The money there's one other note I should. I should say about this interview. which is that? I actually talked to him in October. And we lost the interview. I thought you weren't gonNA mention that Max well. I can't to guilty alleged. I feel terrible about the thing. I'm an audio professional and and And I just lied. Lost the interview. It was eaten by the computer. I have a funny anecdote about this last interview. which which I air that I?

Yes United Interview View Recently in October believe yet. I'm an audio professional. I recorded the interview and then somehow the interview was lost corrupted. It was stolen by the Internet. And sorry about that. That's fine. I feel great. Shame do you shouldn't you. Shouldn't this another opportunity to hang out and glorious surroundings like our. According to a hotel room in Los Angeles I will say to be beautiful sunset Tower Hotel one of my favorite places in Los Angeles tonight. Beer it's nice hotel got. We're like got a desk cover with the towel. Yeah but I appreciate you coming back and doing this man having so you and I talked years ago and at the time you're the west coast editor of Gawker. Her and the reason I wanted to have you back was shortly after you and I talked you left Gawker and I've been watching from afar far as this whole other career happens and I don't understand it at a really I don't really know basically all I don't understand anything about TV writing. And I don't understand how you make that transition. I don't understand what's similar and what's different. So that's what I'm hoping we can talk about but I was wondering if you could start with like how that I move happened like you were. Journalism was working for you. My experience I to be honest I barely understand it at this point. So so. That's the caveat but I really enjoyed my job I really liked working at Gawker and I had been talking with the guy who's now my manager because his name's Jermaine Johnson. He emailed me in July of twenty thirteen after this. I did this satire piece about the culture of white violence yet amongst teenagers. And I went on Chris Hayes and and did like a spoof of air on the Cristina show and it got a lot of attention and one of the people who now to Germain Johnson who reached out to me. I feel like we should just very briefly. Let people listened to clip of that. Okay okay cool. It's funny you know there are people are going to tell you that. It's just a few bad apples if you look at the video the L.. You can't say this whole group. This has nothing to do with white people. It's just a few bad apples. What do you say to that to that? I say that if that's your actual belief in your living with your head in the sand I used to live in New York City and would occasionally go to hoboken New Jersey Saint Patrick's Day parade And there were so many young white men. They're vomiting sitting in the streets urinating in the streets getting in fistfights in the streets. It was yeah. I've I've seen it myself either. College dorms you can go. What do every other room and the long there are people but uranium sean reached out and said have you ever thought about writing for television? I think you might be good at it or like this piece of of yours and read some other stuff that I'd written and I had sort of toyed with the idea of writing for TV and film but I you know if you're not in the world is you said it's very difficult called. It seems incredibly in solar and it seems like there's a lot of barriers to to getting into it. I didn't know anybody who worked in that field. Had that been an ambition of your Zelic part of why you looked New York can move till I know that I mean for me I would say the like you know there's more but like my literary like heroes or like James Baldwin and John Deehan just in that you know. They took the idea of writer and and looked at. It is a very very broad terms and so they they would write a novel and then they would go right piece of journalism and Johnny Mike already screenplay at the end of that first interview we did you. Were talking about that. And you're also like Graydon Carter owning owning restaurants. Yeah exactly exactly and so like the this idea that like you have a toolbox and you can do a lot of things with that toolbox instead of just this one thing was always subtractive to me. And so while I was like I'm a blogger at gawker right now Ambition to do other stuff on. TV was one of the Had No idea how to do it. So this gay-rights unique mounted on Chris Hayes. Read some other stop. I think maybe you could do this. Yeah and then what happens so we met up for coffee than we decided that I should write a SPEC script so I just just went off very very slowly wrote this script. This drama pilot called. Forgive me father that I if I go back and read it and I think I would really hate it it. I can't I can't bring myself to read the scripts that I've written because I hate them so much but it's and it took me a long time that we met in July sent him the first draft draft of it in January twenty fourteen and he had it for a few days and unlike Friday of that week. Got An email from this guy. Michael Molly. WHO's a writer and actor? He's the host of guts if you remember that show guts. Sure Yeah So. He's among many many other great things he was. That was my first introduction to him and he asked was doing the show called survivor's remorse and asked if I would come be a writer on that show and I quickly called Jermaine and there was like who did you show that script to like. I'm really not proud of it. I think it's Kinda bad. Why are you sending out to people and Germaine was like? I didn't show it to anybody. This guy muster just found you and so I asked her main if he thought that I should take the job and he said that nobody he was like nobody cold calls you to write for TV. Visha like that doesn't happen so I highly recommend you take that job but it was like a full-time Gig. Well I mean it was a full-time Gig. As far as like it was the first season of the show show so but it was a limited order of six episodes. Six half hour episodes to job was going to be thirteen weeks. And then there was no guarantee of a second season after that so I was nervous to make the leap just because I really liked my job at Gawker. I felt like I was good at it. I felt like I had. I wasn't famous by any means but I had I had established rush. People would come to me to ask me to write things for them. I didn't have to like cold email. People send pictures really a lot and so yeah you are established and I assume assume also like making decent money. I was making the most money ever made in journalism and I was making more money than I was then I would be making his TV writer. Because I wasn't ah wasn't allowed in the guilt at that point so I was making most called neophyte rate and so my weekly pay was actually less than what I was just in case. You weren't picture where you are. You're like you're the stump that the totem pole sits on the totem pole. Managers saying like this doesn't in happen. You have to do this. Yeah did it feel that way too. You know because I didn't know anything about television so I didn't realize what a unique opportunity it was so I was like I don't know I'm still kind of nervous about it but I sort of waited in my mind and thought that I could go back and do journalism if I wanted to. You know stupid. Journalism is going to be around forever. I could be a solid. Journalism is going to exist forever. Like this isn't going anywhere Eric this. TV thing doesn't work out. I could definitely go back to Gawker. Like where's GAWKER GONNA go..

The food mix of continental indistinctly new world that makes the Thomas Jefferson claimed as distinctly American Virginia. Hams sweet potatoes corn born in Accra. Chris Pippen apples prepared with a French flair for Cossiga techniques and recipes sauces. He'd so enjoy enjoyed during his years in Paris. As an envoy of the newly United States prepared alongside French ingredients almonds anchovies cheese and raisins and nectarines Koreans in musters of varying shades. In Tang dinner at Monticello would started for. The guests would often find their host already in the dining room. It's walls painted chrome yellow. Jefferson would be reading a book pulled from the shelves by the fireplace philosophy. Zoology architecture texture religion politics the natural scientists who still very Jefferson. The contents of the books would spill out into the dinners themselves. He I love delivery table free-flowing conversations tails well told vigorous debate ideas presented in refined all helped by the wine that flowed live freely to shipped over from Europe or does and Maderas Chianti riesling grapes. That grew on fog hung hills that roll down to the Rhine by the pictures on those yellow walls. Copies of old masters Grand European landscapes alongside American ones Niagara the natural the bridge harpers ferry. Just as grand. We're meant to start the conversation valued so on travel on geology. And Trade on America's Carr's places and its place in the world because these dinners always so very Jefferson. We're so American by his design shooing the British formality. It never ending courses rule bound in ritualized. Hoity toity instead. Appetizers main dishes would be laid out on the table. Diners honors could choose what to eat with. What in win when they wanted more more courses more French wine. There were more of Jefferson's designs in the dining room in Monticello were amenities of his own. Invention special dumb waiters by which bottles editions could come up from the kitchen in the cellar or be sent back down special. Missile doors and the walls that would revolve would feel like magic and reveal shelves with cakes and pastries plates. To come or go guess would marvel at. They're hosting genuity the some grumble later in their diaries. They didn't appreciate having to get up and serve themselves. Jefferson would say that the presence of servants would disrupt up the rhythm of conversation the free flow of ideas among free people in free nation. While he and his guest spoke on poetry on liberty and as is the shelves revolved as though by magic is the dumb. Waiters disappeared down below. His diners to be interrupted were overheard by the enslaved people working below or behind the revolving walls the people who had shocked the corn and time the souffle chip the ice had called it out from the Ice House in crafted the brick from which was built it stacked them according to their masters design. Who cleaned the plates in stoke the fires and who had learned proper planning from James. James Hemmings an enslaved man. Jefferson brought with him to Paris so he could learn French cooking and bring it back to Monticello when he returned to Virginia where he lived with his sister. Sally Allie Jefferson owned and fathered children by whom he also owned new catalog. The winds Polish the silver slaughtered. The pigs hung their bodies up to dry work. Made the dinner out of sight out of mind so talk of freedom could flow at Monticello which was so. Very Jefferson Deficit.

It went through many designs and redesigns and wasn't finished until eighteen own.

There's got to be a better explanation for this so that's that's sort of that sort of the start of this for Jefferson right a he's some as background is lower and obviously in politics two was he actually doing this old lacquer armchair over the actually going on expeditions and Hanes on stuff so yes so Jefferson yeah so Jefferson's education has yet so he goes the College of William and Mary and he studies mathematics and philosophy and he but he also develops this really deepened abiding love for you know what they didn't have the term term then Beret Bo Bo we would today call science right of just like all all stripes <hes> and what is it. They caught natural philosophy. Is that the natural philosophy at the time yeah so or you know I mean if you had a more of a religious Bentos like natural theology you know so but yeah basically the study of nature and <hes> and Yeah Jefferson yeah he develops his very deep abiding love love for Science and Jefferson was was methodical. I mean you know this was not what this is important part of the story to right because I mean so far is basically a professional scientists right Jefferson is not Jefferson is a as a politician he works as a lawyer and then eventually gets involved in politics with the American revolution and becomes ambassador and and eventually Vice President President etc but you know he's he's not a slouch about this and so in in the case of <hes> of like these bones right so he finds out these bones are in Kentucky right there basically justly roading out of the ground round out this salt lick and so Jefferson wants to actually see them. He wants to look at them for himself. Now he doesn't go down to Kentucky because he's otherwise occupied but <hes> and this is a great part of the story <hes> so he gets somebody somebody to go get the bones for him and so the first person he dispatches his actually Daniel Boone the legendary frontiers. Who's who yeah what else do we know? We had a coon skin hat. That's right. I'm so one of the People's Daniel Boone one of the other people is this Guy General George Rogers Clark <hes> who was the commander army and the West and it's Clark who actually ends up agreeing to <hes> to go down there <hes> get a bunch of these bones gathered them up and ship them back to <hes> to Jefferson <hes> up north or up in Virginia sorry not north but yet will further north <hes> and Jefferson Jefferson and so Jefferson is able to to examine these bones for the first time and the thing that really strikes him about them is <hes> well so so not surprisingly one of the things that so he fiercely disagrees with boof on about them because bef- on I knew about these bones to write it had been a French explorer who had originally found them so fond of course knew about them and so the thing that really struck everybody about them was that there these huge bones and their teeth in there and so some of the teeth are clearly tusk's like those of an elephant right <hes> but the other thing are the molars right they have these mass dedicating teeth or what they called grinders back then and these are not like teeth that are found in in modern elephants and so there's so that's the first big mystery right because the assumption is that these are all the bones of one animal and so it's like well what kind of animal has both tusks and grinding grinding teeth because it's not any kind of animal that we know about and Buffon answer is actually. He thinks that you know they're probably not the same animal. He thinks they're two different animals. He thinks the tusks are those of an elephant and the teeth.

"He was Thomas Jefferson <hes> so Thomas Jefferson is one of our founding fathers in the United States so he was third president from he was our second vice president. He was our first secretary of state. <hes> he was also the author of the American Declaration of Independence so he was he was a pretty prominent important person in in the history the founding of the United States and <hes> as as I'm going to argue <hes> he's also really important in the history of crypto zoology too which is not one of his achievements that he's a he's usually recognized for yeah indeed. I didn't didn't know anything about this. Did you like not until her justice presentation so no now I did know about one tiny aspect of it. I remember watching among the it was Kim Burns did Lewis Clark documentary and they were talking about <hes> on the loose and Clark Expedition Jefferson was specifically asking Lewis Clark or to look for specific animal but I don't spoil that so <hes> will let let Justin get into that but no I was basically completely ignorant of this and my hope is that our listeners will also be somewhat ignorant and we'll be excited to learn you stuff. I mean I mean what we want to do as much as possible I think of <hes> our audience is like a giant coloring book and we're just coloring them in with science in history so <hes> in waiter I am. I don't know where that is coming from. That's probably Tequila so just this move on fresh. Okay I lost Thomas Jefferson have to do with cryptic zoology so yeah. This is not an aspect of Jefferson's life that is is I I would agree with you. Guys is it's not particularly well known <hes> which is not to say that has not been well documented that was one of the things that really surprised me about this when I started digging into it is that they're actually a lot of books and essays and and papers out there that talk about this but the kind of like Blake was saying they only talk about little facets of it and so what I really wanted to try and kind of put like this whole picture together about Jefferson's sort of crypto zoological logical career and and also just actually how important it was because this was not just some kind of like Lark he had on the side. I think that this is actually very instrumental to understanding Jefferson as a person and also <hes> it's instrumental to understanding branding his conceptualization of what America <hes> shouldn't and would become <hes> so to really though get into understanding the relationship between Jefferson encrypt zoology as I talked about right in my presentation you can't really start with Jefferson you have to start with <hes> another guy <hes> a very different person and that was a George Louis Leclerc <hes> who was also known as the count of Buffon and he he was a French <hes> scientist is basically a celebrity scientist. He was born in <hes> seventeen seven and he went to the University of angers. <hes> if I'm remembering that correctly yeah the University of anger is where he graduated in seventeen thirty two <hes> and almost immediately after he got out of college he was given a a job with the French Royal Academy of Science in their engineering department and then that immediately landed him a contract with the French navy <hes> working on redesigning their ships and because of ships were out of would at the time Jeff von decide that he needed to not only know everything there was to know about ships he need to know everything there was no about trees which meant that he they need to know everything there wasn't about plants which led to this.

"I'm gonna be really honest, and I do, and it's funny that you say that about watch much my language, I feel bad like I had no idea. I would the way they did the the players should Beaune in. It's not a knock on them. Like, I know anytime I say a word I need to any this soom. It's going to be recorded and put out there. But it was one of those things where you're talking and you're kinda cracking jokes with some guys. And you don't know what they're just gonna use one clip. I really did not remember Cussing that much like I located that professional as a person that really doesn't cuss that much. But it was more of like when we were describing, and I really kind of took my back to that place in that moment. That's just kind of just how it was. So I I regret a little bit that it's gone viral. And I'm like. Doing it as much, but it just part of it. I don't care that you were Cussing. I'm asking about the actual content of the story saying that oh bleep. I better. Get a thank God. I don't want any part of this that kind of honest, even though you explain it very well right here on air, but given that kind of honesty, and that kind of sound bite that it is is that a story that you would have told if you were still an active player with. Saying that I want. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Hundred percent anybody. That knows me knows that. But you know, I am kind of unapologetically honest. And I think anybody that knows me my teammates like that. They don't question whether or not I thrive for big moments, or you know, because that's all I'm really matters. I don't care. What fans? I don't care. What media thing? I don't care what my team thing and Jason Kidd or Kenyon Martin. Or LeBron James all of these guys? I firmly believe if they were like, hey, would you go to battle with Richard? Could you trust Richard on the floor and a big moment? Would you give him the ball? If you needed to in a big moment. I like to believe all of them say, yes, because they all have and we've all been successful in certain spaces. So I don't really care to be honest. And you know, it's like, you know, talent, you know, people saying like, hey, you know, I cried when my kid was born or stuff like that. Look, if you're having a motion moment, or you're giving something like brutally honest like that's just the reality. Situation. However, the pundits want to dissect it and say, what do you think about a player saying, this, do you think less or more? It's like, I really don't care. What people think about me? And that I wanna get a minute from this guy, Richard Jefferson with us, and we hope to talk to you again on Monday. We're going to talk to me. I mean, I mean that was a good question too. By the way, don't don't take my answer the wrong way. Thanks RJ. Try hard. Stop calling him on. It's a little too chummy. We're trying to do journalism around here. So RJ, what can you tell us about Kyrie Irving? And that's like a minute of undestood honesty is someone who's been around all that stuff. I think there's a lot of different emotions, obviously, I get a ton of tax when people that were in that circle. And I got a ton of people that are outside that circle questioning it. I think there was there is a little bit of sadness. There's a little bit of you know, frustration. I think you always say. This you look at you know, Shaq and Kobe were they they come back together when they're forty years old and they're talking about. Yeah. We were probably a little too egotistical. At that moment that we probably we stayed together probably would have won one or two more championship. But in that moment, all they care about is their own future. And they all have their own destinies kind of change. And I think, you know, Cairo Irving for him. He did understand because he was in gun guy. You can't ask a young player to look at life through an older players win. Right. Like, you just you can't right? I didn't understand when I was in my first year the today going to the NBA finals, and I see these guys like crying and our second year, excuse me. And I see these guys crying..
