Pike's Peak: The Complete History of the World's Highest Hill Climb
"Pike's peak is a giant among giants. It's the highest mountain in the front range of the rocky mountains. It is formed from billion-euro old granite. That's right. Billion with a B. and was first named by the native people who lived in shadow the called the mountain. Taba meaning son and they were the Tableau Watch meaning people of San Mountain. In eighteen o six, the mountain was quote unquote discovered. By American explorer lieutenant, Zevulon Yuan Pipe. These God I sounds like an alien spaceship guy. On. Doesn't look as cool as his name suggests I'm just GonNa tell you right now he was sent by Thomas Jefferson on a mission to explore the West and upon seeing the Mountain Zevulun apparently swore the mountain would never be conquered by man cars didn't exist yet, but it's safe to assume pike would have included them in his assessment as well. Given the chance it only took fourteen years. To prove old Zebulon Pike. Wrong. The mountain was first scaled by a European in eighteen twenty when Edwin James, a botanist and explorer successfully reached the summit collecting flowers all the way up quote the most notable day of the expedition for botanical collecting. Now, I don't WanNa give all the credit to Edwin. James although it sounds like he had a great time, I'm sure that one of the Taboada probably. Did it before him yeah. One hundred percent. Yeah attaboy watch like a a wildfire up their boot who was just like I'm GonNa Climb that today flowers. We're lovely but it was a Shinier commodity that attracted the first wave of settlers to pikes. Peak Pike's peak or bust was a common slogan of the Colorado Gold Rush of the eighteen fifties although is more of a marketing slogan. Do the prominence of the mountain gold wasn't discovered near pikes peak until later in eighteen ninety three, it won't be the first time that the mountain inspired the imaginations of those who climbed it in that same year after reaching a summit of the mountain and taking in the view Katharine Lee Bates wrote the Song America the beautiful. Describing Purple Mountain Majesties above the enameled plane over the years the mountain was commonly referred to as Pike's highest peak before finally being simplified just to pikes peak the next notable American to shape the fate of the mountain was Spencer Penrose, and he also might have been the one to introduce cars. Penrose had a name that sound like the bad guy in a murder mystery but he also had a job that would fit right into the genre. He was a mining speculator of the American West just like a murder mystery penrose had a history that could make you think you is both a suspect and a savior he graduated from Harvard but at the bottom of his class. His father and brothers were doctors and lawyers he decided to travel out west and try to make a name for himself at first he failed before getting a tip about some land near Cripple Creek that made him millions of dollars, and that's million dollars like in the movie this guy is played by Walton Geoghegan's. For sure. That's love that whilst. Yeah. And that's millions of dollars in eighteen hundreds money, which is like a lot today billions today. I Love Walton Gardens he's so. I feel like if I went to Harvard I'd WanNa, graduate the bottom of my class. Look I'm I'm the best on the rowing team but. Not great at socio economics I mean I went to. Harvard. So I'm pretty good at stuff but like I partied penrose settled. Colorado. Springs. The closest town to pikes peak was met a woman named Julie Villiers McMillan although. Penrose was by then in his forty s, he had sworn to stay a rich entrepreneurial bachelor but Macmillan proved to be grimes to his Elon Musk and the two got hitched in traveled to Europe for a lavish honeymoon staying at beautiful resorts around Europe inspired penrose to murder his wife what now? In fact, the inspiration was to open his own motel modeled after the places he had stayed specifically on the Mediterranean coast. This became the Broadmoor hotel opened in nineteen eighteen at the cost of three million, nineteen eighteen dollars translating to scrooge mcduck. Gold Coin Swing Pool amount of money in today's money. The Broadmoor was and is a seven hundred, seventy nine room Italian renaissance style palace with eighteen restaurants a golf club with three courses including one designed by Arnold. Palmer himself an automotive museum, the contents of which will soon arrive at this thing is like massive. It looks awesome. Yeah. I WanNa go to the odd more. Yeah. Let's do it. How do you feel? Seven hundred rooms every night. That's nuts penrose was no fool. He knew he knew that to attract people to the hotel you needed to do things great reviews on tripadvisor, dot com and promotional stunts. He set out to work on an ambitious project as he built the hotel, it was a two hundred, eighty, three, thousand, dollar gravel and dirt road to the fourteen thousand, one, hundred, fifteen foot summit of pikes peak with the idea of promoting tourism to the area and indirectly his own hotel.

Interim Seattle police chief calls for end to protest violence
"To people are facing charges in connection to protest violence. King County prosecutors charged Jacob Greenberg and Danielle. McMillan with reckless burning Greenberg is also charged with assault police. Say he hit an officer in the head with a bat at a press conference? Seattle's interim police chief Adrian as called for property destruction and violence against police officers to stop.
Why are so many Seattle Police Department officers leaving the city?
"Seattle Police chief Adrian DEA says two people have been arrested for attacking officers and setting fires at riots. First Jacob Greenberg, the essence. Greenberg is the guy I seen in a video, swinging hard with a metal baseball bat and hitting an officer on his helmet, according to charging documents after the real attack, the national from Kirkland Express remorse. Not for potentially fatally assaulting itself. For the fact that the officer was wearing a helmet that most likely saved his life, Diaz says. Greenberg later contacted Danielle McMillan. Greenberg also texted a friend that he would like to And I quote slit every SPD throat, Diaz says. Both McMillan and Greenberg then threw firebombs at the Seattle police, East Precinct and Police Officers Guild headquarters is clear from their actions that they're not here. They're not peacefully protesting anything. You are purposely and methodically planning attacks on police officers and our facilities. Greenberg is charged with first degree assault, first degree attempted arson and first degree reckless burning. McMillan faces first degree attempted arson charges. Chief Diaz says he supports the right of people to peacefully protest. But this just regard for people's lives and safety by throwing flaming objects into a business. This can't be our new normal. Business is small and large or struggling during this pandemic and is completely unacceptable that this is an ongoing violence is on ly com pounding their challenges, and he says it's an important distinction because arming yourself In this case, a baseball bat. Winding up, taking a swing and landing a direct hit to the head to the head of anyone, including a Seattle police officer is a brutal crime. Potential fatal crime. This is not a peaceful protests. This's not civil disobedience. This is illegal and this is violence. You will be arrested. This comes as protesters demand big cuts to Seattle police D. As acknowledges. Dozens of officers have left the department for us is really about showing all of the work that's having There is a requirement or need for a police officer. Every day day in and day out. We recovered 2400 shell casings this year over 820 guns were on pace to actually go out and probably recover over 1000 guns this year forth out of the last 11 years we are shootings have are at the highest level of the last 11 years. We've had, you know, a significant increase in homicides. And and so we have to realize that this there are some huge safety issues when it comes to violent crime in this city, and we need officers to be able to respond. And I need to keep the department asshole as I can. I need to make sure that I have officers to be able to respond to all those calls for service. And you know, there are things that I would love for. You know, maybe Social Services T take off her plate. But the reality is is Thursday was a great example of the officer involved shooting where you had somebody that had clearly mental health issues. But social services not gonna end up addressing somebody with a flaming torch, you know, running and throwing in an officer in their car. And so the reality is, we do need our officers. We need to have some level of safety and that is, I think the discussion that happens every single day in this city that people were starting to realize we do need officers. We want to make sure they're well trained. They're holding held accountable for their actions when they've done wrong, and you know that's as a chief. That's what I'm doing soon. The City Council begins its deliberations on the police department's budget for 2021. Its members have said they're seeking to reduce funding to police in order to support a reimagining of the forests that would allow for a rethink of law enforcement in Seattle.
Bookworms Are Loving Ebooks, According To OverDrive
"Reading more books I'm so glad. We're reading more books? Did. You know your local library. Yeah you have one still. Your local library. Hope you have a library card because they have e books and audiobooks there did you know that? And increasingly people are taking out the e books. There's two big programs that are widely used. For for this and it's you know it's it's because the publishers don't want you to get free books. So they actually sell these books to the library and they put limitations on them. How many can be loaned at any given time for how long and how many years they have access to it. They pay on average according to this article in wired. Forty Bucks, the libraries do for these books. So take advantage of this. There are two different programs. What you should do is check your local library. Make sure you have a card first of all I. Hope you do and then check to see which of the two programs. they used one call. they have four, hundred, thirty, nine library systems well, no I'm sorry they have four, hundred, thirty, nine new library systems since March. Twenty percent increase the other one is called overdrive. They actually have fifty thousand libraries worldwide. overdrive says the checkout of e-books fifty, two percent since last year. Sure. You'RE NOT GONNA go library and take out a physical book but an e book you can do online and why not? They do that with audio books to. Is a bit of really nice free to you. Library it's not free to and I wish that publishers weren't so. I duNNo. finicky. Since twenty eleven Penguin. Random House has shet Harpercollins, Simon Schuster McMillan. They they either limit library lending of books by time two years, for example, or the number of check-outs. Twenty six or fifty, two since two bad you in the library buys a book. They'll have to spend extra money on it and they can check it out. You know you can check as many times you want. But the publishers you know how nervous they are getting. Robbed or whatever. Twenty dollars to sixty five dollars a copy of the book, and they have limits on how often they can. But still so they buy them. So do it let us take advantage of it? Get that library card. You might even be able to do that without going in. That would be nice. Get that library card in. And take advantage of this. Nice. Thank you libraries. Thank. You and we talk a lot about technology. But the book is a book is a book and even if you get an e book form, that's still that's reading. That's good.

"If you're going to point to his playoff record. You also have to make the point that no coach can win without his best players in the playoffs. Especially, if in the first round, they are facing a superior opponent seemed to be the case almost every year for nate McMillan. Now partially because of that, he's out of a job in Indiana. Yeah and I and I always say this 'cause I most of the organizations I've been a part of have been really good and I I rarely faced any type of dysfunction right. But I will say that the coaches and the GM and everyone has to be on the same page and if they don't want Nathan good for nate good for that he got the extra year or whatever the money he's going to get in good shape for good for the next organization hires him as going to have like a team that brings it every day and is prepared every day and night never gives up. That stuff's important which makes me it brings me back to this I. I'm not I'm feel bad that I'm doing this about. Victor Oh. The depot because I really liked old depot couple of years ago. But big depot is saying the whole. I. Don't know if I want to be here and if they say, well, what do you think about nate and he comes up and says something about it then I feel bad at that player who I feel like it's just happen half out right now when I'm watching Indiana Pacers is making decision I. Don't know any of the stop, but it just seems so odd that whatever happened two. Weeks ago, pre get the extension and then whatever's happening right now it just seems odd that that's driven by management. I don't think I my personal opinion I don't feel like management fluctuates back much not two weeks ago to today. So I I hope that all the depot is like no man role nate I wish it was my coach, but we'll never ever find this stuff out. But when bunny business happens like a guy science and extension in a week and gets fired I'll I personally always look to? The superstar player and I always also looked his free agency and see if those all align and right now they seem to all line. So I hope I hope Oh depot is not the one standing up trying to get you know get get them out of there. was just two weeks ago today scale on August Twelfth Nate McMillan agreed to a one year extension today August twenty six pacers fire nate McMillan a very unusual situation there in Indiana and as always on Scalp House we'll have breaking news as far as WHO Indiana's looking at to be their next head coach and when then when they hire somebody will break that all down. You make a great point about. Victory Depot was his perceived unhappiness in Indiana, and the fact that it's he seems to have its heart set on ending up in Miami either via trade or is a free agent in two thousand, twenty, one this factor does that factor into this decision? My guess is it's probably did at some level which seems unfair to nate. Well, let's get back to the game scale from from Tuesday in the NBA. Couple Games in the western conference yesterday one was very good. One was not. Let's start with early game scowl and that was between the Denver Nuggets in the Utah Jazz Denver took that one, one, seventeen, one, seven, they were down three one coming into the game on Tuesday night they won game five scouts, and now that series is three to Utah and it's getting tighter and I think the jazz still have an advantage in my opinion scale in this series. But Jamal, Mari was great. Once again for Denver, he had forty two points, eight rebounds and. Eight assists and I bring that up because I. I can see this potentially going seven games. It felt to me especially when Utah was up fifteen points in the third quarter that they were going to put the game away put the series away on Tuesday night that didn't happen. So it seems like the door is opening a little bit and it seems like Denver has more of a chance in this series. Now, as we continue to hear reports also that Gary Harris the best offensive guard for the nuggets is getting closer and closer to potentially returning to action. Gary I feel like every Harris has to come back for them to win because. You can't just keep writing. Jamal Murray and having him score fifty points and and dominate the entire second half. You're going to have to get something from somebody else and then defensively, they don't have anybody to stop Donovan Mitchell I thought he did a good job with Jeremy Grant but I just think you need more people to guard Donovan Mitchell so easily if Gary give you twenty minutes but he solid defensively and he can make Donovan Mitchell just little bit tougher than what it is I think they have a chance to win I I still think Utah's a better team with you on that one. Feel like they play better. Team basketball is just like the other night it was better to individual performances by. By dramatic Murray and Yokich. But the team wise it does seem like DENVER Utah's a much better team. But if Gary Harris can return, let's just say right now they don't have anybody I in my opinion that can slow down Donovan Mitchell. But if Gary Harris can give you eighteen minutes at eighteen less minutes for Michael Porter Jr. to be out there playing for Utah guys.

"You want Indiana's minute consistent playoff team who hasn't been able to get over the Hump in the playoffs you want to try to take him to the next level so it's it's a great marketplace for a guy like Tai. Lue Who I think we'll have multiple suitors and multiple teams interested the second point cow, and this is what's really interesting to me is. that. Let's look at the business of basketball for a minute with owners cutting back and teams cutting back staff size and staff salary and letting people go and furloughing people and asking people to remain on staff to take pay cuts that's happening around league. It's really interesting in me scowl that a lot of these owners are letting go of their highest paid employee in most cases, the head coach and oftentimes his staff harder all of his staff as well because it's a juxtaposition scowl where you know the Philadelphia Seventy sixers say, well, we want to do a salary reduction for anybody who makes. More than seventy thousand dollars and that gets a lot of negative backlash from Joel embiid and others say they reverse that decision and? I think rightly for. Protest excuse me to that but then they say, well, we're going let go Brett Brown and he's got a couple of years on his deal. I'm guessing skelly probably around five million bucks a year. So like ten million total. But yeah, sure no problem whatever you know it's like it's just doesn't really make sense. You know when you look at it from a business dollars and cents perspective that Owners seemed willing to burn money on on player contracts that don't work out on coaches. But if there's a secretary God forbid she makes a penny over seventy thousand dollars. We're GONNA. We're GONNA take we're. GonNa take. Over pay and it's only you only have to get the half bird this year on Thanksgiving Scalp won't be able to get the full check and show the full turkeys you only get. You only get the half. You know maybe a few one one winning instead of to. Well. That's your point of. Being in the four walls and being outside of the for Fort while you just you just laid out what is like living outside of the four walls and being like yeah like. You're saying wait a minute you're GONNA pay another coach five, million dollars you had brick brown he's making five you're paying your coach Tim million dollars you don't even know if you're gonNA have season at this point but yeah but you know the the secretary, the ticket sales, guys like the janitors people at the arenas like we we just don't have any more money to spend what do you mean you don't have any more money we're just got five million already had a job, but you're right and we had and we inside the four walls. Of course, of course, you get rid of the coach and you just pay another guy, six, seven, eight, million dollars ex year. Of course, you do those type of things but when you put it in that perspective, you're absolutely right. You got some of these employees who are furloughed or laid off or whatever it is got to be thinking of themselves like wait a minute. We're in this pandemic and everybody's supposed to be tightening the belt and you're paying a guy to leave. You're paying another guy to replace him what is the deal? He made that big of a difference and you know quite honestly Ryan. They might not make that big of a different Philadelphia Losing First Round next year depending who who their coaches it's just a way to business goes. Sure. I mean, look at Sacramento a year ago under Dave Yeager, they won thirty nine games were a team on the rise. They make a coaching change scale. They were a lot worse this year they were with the Egger and then Vlade Divac gets fired but they pay him to, and then now they're gonNA pay another GM. Y- they're paying yeager and we'll see what happens with Luke Walton. It's just it's different. You know what reminds me of like when we were kids The Tom and Jerry cartoons where they grab a guy by the ankles and turn them upside down like shake coins out of his pocket. That's the seem like they do to the low level employees like they don't do that to the star players and they don't do that to the. But like you know the the guy making fifty grand with a family of four who scraping by you know it's like they're going through his couch cushions if he left any any coins behind on his way out the door and I'll I'll. I'll get off my soapbox about how a lot these NBA. But it is. It is true. It is like an and it is weird when you think about it and that's why when you have friends that aren't really involved in the NBA and we look at we, we look at Damian Lillard I don't look at what he makes look at it like his cap hold thirty, five percent he's thirty five percent cap guy that makes sense to be I don't know that thirty five. Percents fifty million dollars a year I don't even know. I don't even know what fifty million dollars a year is GONNA win. It's a difference between making fifty or forty or thirty. I have no idea right but they're still right like the do that thought he was going to make like fifty five, and now he's only making fifty thousand guys GonNa really struggle during this time and other guys are like A. Players like man you gotTa show me that respect man i. can't disrespect me with a ninety million dollar offer eye. That's disrespectful. How can I even go to work the next day? It's true. Latrell, sprewell, said scalise got a family to feed. Didn't want I don't think it was a three year twenty, one, million dollar deal which at that time was a lot. You know you've got a family to twenty, one, million that's insulting. GotTa, show them that respect. One final thought on on eight McMillan from me with the Pacers, bobby marks from ESPN and had a really good insightful three you and I know bobby. Bobby had this Tweeden scale I. thought it was very accurate. I couldn't said it better myself. He said instead of the Pacers listing nate McMillan's three and sixteen playoff record. Indiana should have put in twenty. They lost by a combined sixteen points to the Cleveland Cavaliers with Lebron James in two thousand, eighteen, they lost Cleveland in seven games in two, thousand, nine, nineteen they did not have Victor Depot against the Celtics as you know, you call that series and then in twenty twenty when they just Miami Heat they did not have D'Amato. Savona. So I'm scale. This is a brutal business I. It's it's often unfair you and I have. Benefited from it we've been on the wrong side of that that fairness but this one seems really tough to me given not only what nate accomplished in the regular season in Indiana..

"And you know I'm selfish and you guys at Liss. Cowan. Pals you guys know I'm hard for Oklahoma City not then I got anything against Houston don't want Oklahoma City to win so I can get paid get that respect. So Advantage Oklahoma City tonight because Mike Dantonio. Normal that your head coach. Doesn't have a contract extension and one foot in one foot out I. Feel like that could be enough in a series that to meet bills is right down the middle can go either way i. that's kind of an advantage for okay. See I mean who knows how Houston with play when all this? Gets worked out. Might get Tony Distant many innovative things there if they. If they think he's gone, do they not like play with that extra effort? I don't know I felt like throughout this playoffs feel like they're bringing it and maybe this isn't news to them, but I just find it interesting that Mike Dantonio linked to a job already had a job in the playoffs he's playing tonight. Team is playing tonight on a completely different team and he's linked to another job where I just fired. So I don't know maybe I'm reading in between the lines here but I do think that could be an advantage of Oklahoma. City. Yeah. I do too but Houston's been dealing with this for a while scall- going back to last off season Daryl Morey the GM of the rockets and Tillman, for t to the new owner flew to West. Virginia to meet with. Mike Dantonio Mike De. Antonis Agent Warren Gary, who's one of the most powerful agents in the NBA was not at the meeting he was not invited to the meeting. So no extension was signed at that meeting nor was one agreed upon both sides kind of begrudgingly agreed. All right. We'll play the year out with Mike. Is a lame duck kip coach, and then he will be an unrestricted free agent. So to speak as head coach Gal and this is where this thing is so crazy in the NBA. I. Think when you're inside like you and I were scale for a long time, you tend to normalize it or think it's normal. Then when you take a step back and you removed from league like I. have been for the last two years after fifteen plus inside the walls is not normal like these aren't how normal businesses act normal businesses behave where you have. You know Philadelphia's still playing in a playoff series and before game four even starts there leaks seem to come from the seventy sixers organization that round is on his way out you know regardless of what happens the rest of the series? Then nate McMillan. Again, he signs an extension a week or so ago then now he is he is out as the Pacers head coach and then Mike Dantonio who scall- they have a chance you and I don't think it's a great chance given they have to be too tough. Okay. See team this round, and then if they do that, they have to play the number one in the western conference, the Lakers. But all that being said scale the rockets or a talented team. The, guys who set the lines in Vegas seem to think they have a chance to win the championship as to others. So all all that being said, it's just really unusual. It's really unique. Unfortunately, it's becoming more and more normal in the NBA scale the sideshow. So to speak the circus but that is part of doing business in the NBA and twenty twenty and. I'll be interested to see if Dan, Tony and the rockets places players can ignore the distractions in the chatter that is now heating up Tony Not only is he not going to be back in Houston, but he's likely to coach somewhere else in a few of the teams including Indiana are now listed as his potential landing spots for the two, thousand, twenty, twenty, one these. Yeah. There's been a lot of tea lou talk with a lot of with Philadelphia New Orleans there's I wonder if Macmillan with jump into these some of these talks as well I think nick McMillan would be really good for 'em be because he doesn't care man he calls people out and I. that's I think that'd be good for embiid and Simmons to go kind of a different direction when it comes to being held accountable and until I think the. Coaching search micro. What was the off season? We're like no coaches lost their job. was that coming into this year that every coach was was safe i. think it was, and now we're like we're gonNA have all kinds of movement when it comes to coach it's so funny how that stuff works I. Everyone stands Pat Until One person does it and then everyone just jumped on that bandwagon afterwards. So really interesting what's going on in the NBA and I've always thought nate's teams played extremely hard and I always Thought. They played and they were always prepared when they're in there from my days when I used to like watching the sonics play and I grew up I grew up idolizing nate McMillan dot. He was really good in Portland I thought he was good at Indiana at times. So this is a really interesting thing because there are some jobs out there and then be interesting if nate's wants to maybe take a step back and take the year off or does he want to get right back into that fire? Yeah. He's still getting paid at least some level for next season scallon that's really interesting. You bring up a great point two points actually one is that the Indiana Pacers now join a very crowded field with a lot of desirable head coaching jobs right so we have the Philadelphia Seventy sixers we have the Brooklyn. Nets. Have the Chicago Bulls, the New Orleans Pelicans, and now the Indiana Pacers scale. So those are five jobs and they're all pretty good ones I mean. You can make an argument for you want young talent you want veteran talent do.

So out of Indiana and this surprise me I've been in this league along time and have been in front office fift- fifteen years you've been around the league for a long time. Eleven plus as a player, and then as a coach and broadcaster scale I'm not sure I've ever seen a head coach get an extension that was announced within the last week or so with Pacers head coach Nate McMillan, and then get fired less than a week or two after signing that extension. But that's what happened this morning with the Indiana Pacers letting go of nate McMillan. Yes so is that like a good by President? Thank you so much and by the way, can you get your heart head on because this is going to be a tough show. This is not going to be some easy cupcake it right to the point like we have a lot of things to dive into Ryan mcdonagh and we don't WanNa go half asked here on Cowan Pal so I don't. Like What would cause you two things? One what would cause you to do a one eighty like that and then to what the hell is your owner thinking when you decide hey, I think we should have this guy next year. Hey. We need to go separate way. So I asked You I've never talked to an owner about this type of stuff I just don't understand how you can do a one eighty on a guy when you're banged up and by the way Miami is good. They're not you lose the Miami Heat who these guys were play and the best basketball they've been playing all season long. So Ryan, enlighten me lot of good questions scale and Ozzy I have. More questions than answers about this one because it is very unusual, it's very unique. Now, what we don't know are the specific details of nate McMillan's extension, right? So they say he got an extension, but that can mean a lot of things scall- Did they tack on another fully guaranteed year at a high salary? Did he already have a partial guarantee that they made a fully guaranteed or today increases guarantee for the for the next year was Just semantics and for show to be honest with you to inspire the players and the team before the playoff series started against Miami to say look you know we're behind you. We support our coach. We know we're undermanned without some bonus and Jeremy Lamb but you know we we believe in nate was it that I think those are all possibilities, scall- but just looking at it objectively and it's hard. I think to do that in this league because I know a ton of people in the league I mean Nate McMillan a little bit I don't know him. Well, I worked with his son Jamal McClellan who is a rising star in the coaching ranks in and. Also friends with Kevin Pritchard and Chat Buchanan and others in the Pacers Office. And I, bring that upscale because despite all that my opinion is that this is unfair to nate and it seems unfair to nate. Because as you mentioned one, they were playing a very good Miami team that you and I think is playing as well. Maybe better than any team in the Eastern Conference now and two they didn't have arguably their best player in D'Amato bonus they did not have Jeremy. Lamb, who tore his ACL and is out for the year and they also had Oladipo Gal who you and I have talked about on the show. Didn't really seem like he wanted to play wasn't fully committed to playing until the league said, if you don't play, you won't get paid. So then all the decided to play he played all right but I didn't think it was his Max effort. So I had all that upscale and I look at nate McMillan's track record people are GonNa Point to the playoff record. I thought that was one thing that was a little bit unusual and I didn't like that the Pacers put that in the press release that he was three and sixteen in the playoffs. So it seems like there was some tension and friction there that was bubbling below the surface I heard for months even back to twenty one, thousand, nine that the pacers interested in Mike Dantonio Houston's head coach if reports ways where the rockets which seems likely whenever Houston's done playing. But now scowl seems like that may be a reality and that's how crazy business count Brett Brown. Loses a game on Sunday. He gets fired on Monday nate McMillan lose a day or two ago. He gets fired now Mike Dantonio is still coaching, but it seems like the likelihood is that he will not be back in Houston and I'll be very interested to see if he does end up on the Indiana Pacers Bench.
Pacers fire coach Nate McMillan after four seasons
"To the Indiana Pacers have fired head coach Nate McMillan. The team had just announced two weeks ago that they were giving MacMillan a one year contract extension. But after getting swept in the first round of the playoffs, the team decided it was time to let him go. MacMillan had been the head coach for the pacer of the last four seasons, but was three and 16 in the playoffs, not making it out of the first round any of those years. Pacers president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard says. It was a very hard decision but wants to move in a different direction, and the search for a new coach begins

"Business and about what I'm trying to do and moving agenda forward. and. We're not going to move. Forward. As an industry and as a culture if we keep making it about this rail being point one later. We keep making it about Hey. This latest. Mag this is the greatest thing ever. This is going to change the world because the Palmer we used his. That's all well and good. That's a SPEC sheet. That's a SPEC sheet and for the affection or the high level guy that's going to matter. But you know as well as I do in a booth or in a situation you have let me connect you my Spec guy you know, hey, he's going to walk you through all the fine details. This is the conundrum of business ownership maybe even specifically in our industry because like you said. People who tend to start businesses at least in this part of the industry are engineers right in designing something you're making something you're creating your baby. So engineers typically aren't super creative. They tend towards the logical side of you know the the brain structure, not the creative side and that's I. think that's probably part of why biggest been really difficult for people for our industry to really like have have some monster brand. You know there's been a couple companies who I think have done it. Really, well, I, don't know if you know Kevin Britingham Yup did he's he's the best there is at Br as far as I can tell at branding he's he's he did it with a c. then remington bottom and kind of destroyed AC's brand but he had a great brand with a C. and now he's doing it with a q. and I think Mac pulled it well in the beginning the beginning in the early years murdered they did it really well, and so those two are. Are, really kind of beacons of hope that maybe any silence code it well for a while Yep love those guys doing those and that's what we I mean I I mean I don't have that kind of creativity I need to figure out how as business or you got to figure out and and as a business owners logical type of person you WANNA see results. That's the biggest thing when you're in the creative space of your business, you don't necessarily get quantitative results right away and. It's like I could spend a lot of money on this in a totally work his. You're always skirt that line of of whether this is good or this is over the top. The tangible thing if you can get away from Roi for a minute, which is always hard for the engineer owner type, you know get away from our live from an if you're gonNA remove Roi for one minute, you have to say what is the most efficient way for us to water all these holes? Let's start there. Because if we can find an efficient way because what's the best kill an efficient kill? So, if we can find the most efficient way to do this. That might be a Clint Smith as I gotTA give him credit. But if we can find the most efficient way to do things then that's a win i. So, in media just like in Gary v Coin that's not me something I've drawn on board make if you can create pillar content that you can bleed out into all your other areas that waters those holes both as a business owner as a and I put it right out there I'm not I don't keep any formulas a secret that you can put into the different spaces you can chop up into clips uses photographs you can create efficiency in your media programs I. One of the first things I ask every company right when I go into them as I say, what's your content creation program that'll tell me everything I need to know about their media department. If they tell me well, we do a photo shoot once a quarter then they have no plan. So your plan as you have no plan. Because all you're doing is taking a static photo. You're not telling your brand story through that. You're not progressing your narrative that way you're not doing anything. And if you're doing one off videos once a year, that's not really moving the ball forward what I look for is companies. At least ones I know that are at least moving in the right direction or successful is they'll have three four programs that they can say we're doing this with this this series with this shooter we're doing this with this guy we have this guy in our building. He's doing this and this and this, and we're watering youtube that way and we're watering this that way and we're watering that that way. So I target or I look at how efficient? Are they creating their media because that's the first way I'm GONNA be able to come back to you as an owner and say, here's your return on investment. We spent forty but we watered all these holes or we spent fit whatever the number and the biggest complaint I get from. Comey's give a lot of shit away I get that a lot. And I. Said, well, stop giving it away. And they look at me sometimes dumbfounded I'm like what's the cost of goods of what you're giving away like thirty thousand actually had one company say seventy, five, thousand. Okay Surreal story about us a real one. How do I stop that I says I stop giving it away. Then tell me what the cost of that is not the retail the cost and it was something like thirty grand I said, okay. Imagine if you put that back into your department. To create efficient, media programs You know and then they're like, well, how do we find the right I said the trick is finding the right person hired. That's the trick. And that's where. People don't understand bringing in the right talent to run your department and giving them the ability to create. and. That's why I think it's GonNa, move more and more towards creators and people that understand how to curate content a lot better. But hire a photographer and tom go out and pray. That's on a plan. That's a that's a band aid on an excellent. Especially in today's Today's World I. Mean You need you need more content just like you're saying but I think maybe part of the problem is. We do still have a lot of these old school owners in the industry and they don't get. part of the reason they don't necessarily get the importance of it. And I think secondly like a position that I might be in more is I. I I try to quantify the things of the money I spent and you know I don't necessarily know. Exactly. What is going to give me results I don't know how to create that. I don't know who to hire necessarily. So those are those are. You talk about it like an expert. You have done this but us. Aren't you know we're not necessarily necessarily experts in this and we look at this kind of like this black hole we don't really know what to think about it. So sometimes, easiest things to avoid it right and so but we all know it as well. I shouldn't say we all but I think a lot of us know what you're saying we know it but we just it's it's really hard to grasp. I've said on multiple calls. It's funny. You say that where I was like part of a hiring panel like friends would ask me, hey, would you sit with them? Yeah. Sure. Not a problem pay my pay my feet. But I've sat on multiple calls and I'll say to the person it's it's a question that a lot of owners fear asking. I say all right. You know what's your plan? If you come in here, what's your plan? It's a simple. and. I said well, you know this this this and I say. Well. Pick up your phone. WHO's the most influential person you can call the help the brand right now. It tells me a lot about the person. Because there's a lot of people out run around with degrees and a lot of people were fancy backgrounds that maybe worked at big brands and they could bring a lot of cool stuff in but it's understanding the difference between what's marketing, what's branding? What's running and influence or ambassador program what Social Media Management and a lot of companies can't afford to hire all those people. So they try to hire one catchall and drop it in, and that's really a mistake that person starts at a disadvantage. So a lot of times when I see what companies do no no, you hired me to do this. This is what I was.

"I said, so somebody buys ten thousand stuff. You don't have a a database of that. You're not sending them like a discount code like anything you're just willing to let them like. Float out there into the dust. And urine that specialize market where they would probably love to hear from you guys are loved to have some engagement. And I put it back on the sales team like we need to create a program for these two or three or four time buyers to keep them engaged. Now you're a hundred percent, right? Again the same meeting that I spoke with my sales team this week, we talk about the same thing now for us to be. Flat out honest when we started the company. Knew that are pro. The our our company was really designed and would succeed on our process and our production. So we focused one hundred percent of our money and efforts on making sure that we could make a good product and in some ways, some degrees we outsourced our well, we had distribution for our sales and. we we hired a company to do that. They've been great for us, but one of the things that we're trying to get back to now that we've got our process down and everything's going well exactly what you're saying, how do we engage better with that customer? Because that's what matters at the end of the day these customers want to feel like you know they bought product part of the family. Yeah like I said, it's in this industry branding. You got that brand says a lot about because you're in that specialized niche with that's critical. Yup You know what? I? mean the product in the customer to me become the two most important things. Yeah. You want to build a kick ass brand and you'd love to be able to throw two hundred and fifty thousand at branding and being huge. But at the end of the day, like I've worked for Lube companies are and sometimes it's a lube. It's only we're only going to get in so many people's faces because how many times you buy. Gun Loubier. Twice. You know. We used to go through this battle of breakthrough. With your fighting for more than it's important to know what you're fighting for what you're fighting for more than anything a shelf space in that in that space. So you're trying to win shelf space in your space. What you're fighting for is someone to come in and buy one stock. You want them to build five rifles, six rifles, and it's getting them to wear like there's trigger points like they buy their third stock triggers temper off your next one or. Whatever something that makes them feel warm and fuzzy or call at initiates a call from your team direct you know, hey, you know we noticed you know you've boughten three of our products. We want extend a ten percent off to you can use it whenever you want your gold elite customer like that's like simple programs that I think in our industry you know people don't spend enough time obsessing over that part of the experience and I think it's it becomes A. Almost like a if we build it, they'll come you know and that's kind of the old way of doing it and it's what stymied a lot of brands. I. Feel and we see it out there and even the the ramming love John Paul in the Remington. Brands it's stymied a lot of them because. They make such awesome stuff like the Marlin line is an awesome line, but there's gotta be a process for these things like you have to hold the person's hand like if I go to the Smith and Wesson custom shop, I wanNA feel like my hand is being held through that process and I think that a lot of that gets lost especially now because it's such a fire drill because everybody's buying everything, right? So we have to go back, we owe it to our customer to ourselves to go back and kind of dial that process in as tight as we can. It's not easy. It's always a work in progress, but you're buried in that niche where you have to be on that Yup. I, that that separates I think the best product or best companies from the mediocre companies is your customer service so. There's a there's a lot of good stock makers out there. Believe me I'm not I'm not I think there's good competition in my in my space. So you've got to find the little things that matter the little things that get that customer coming back to you. And not going to the competitor because they're going to get good stock from somebody else guaranteed. There's a good good companies out there if you want to expand into barrels and actions no no, and I say that because I've done that before I, really don't WanNa get into any of the serialized part. So the action is the serialized part. I. Really don't want to do to be under the radar of the ATF what's killing the I wanna ask you what's killing the action space because they can't make them fast of. Is it the tooling is just that it's a it's a very complex part I can tell you that now I don't know all the the innards of the action because defiance can't make them fast enough, and then you get a brand like defiance and they just killing it you know and then people just want their stuff but action making is complex I can tell you that right now there's access or so you need five acting you. Need like at least the way we did in the past, you have a gun drill, which is a super specialized drill only few companies have a wire. EDM's all kinds of different stuff and you got you got the bolt you gotta well the Bolt on if you know certain people do certain ways but you know there's a lot of process that goes into making entire action and this complex work the it's that space I feel can never meet the demand. And in my time in the business in ten years I, don't think I've seen. One Company six I mean defines kills it they Margaret. I mean let's be disclaimer but I haven't yet to see a company really meet the demand for I. mean go sir. Google search actually I sold out. That's going to be a problem you know coming up. Now we saw that run because of Covid, and this gets into a deeper business conversation. We saw covert run I talked to a lot of companies you know as you do to. A lot of companies are scared right now that they're not gonna be able to meet the election demand whether it goes either way right? And they feel, do we ramp up production? Do we try and you can't hire people because people are home collecting more money than than be making working? So I know companies that are really paying people cash under table to come in just to meet the demand because they cannot make the product fast enough. How do we fix this? Well I I don't know I'll be honest with you and we don't see my business in particular and I, speak for every. Business in the in the long range game but we don't see these huge inflows of of you know when when big defense weapons are being bought, you know like Kovic happened and when the riots happened huge gun sales but we didn't see a lot of it. We saw we saw some weirdness. There's definitely some weirdness more pokes in bumps. We had some customers who were just slow because I think. A. An insult customers who are who are busy I think it has to do with price point number one like new new buyers coming into the market. If they're going to buy a bolt gun, they're going to buy the cheapest one pretty much right off the bat takes I mean and and they're hunting by the way they're not long range years. They're hunters. This is what I'm talking about so. You know that's that. We just don't. We just don't see that ebb and flow, but we we have seen some weirdness now as far as as far as like the action makers and stuff like that. I'm not sure I'm not sure what they're going to do I'm sure I'm not sure how they go about hiring more people people I know defines is in Montana I don't know go by every day when I lived that I don't know how. What the workforce looks like I'm in Phoenix we have. You know at some points in the year six, thousand people in the metropolitan area like I got a big workforce to choose from. You know when you're in Montana I can't imagine that that a great workforce to choose from. So that's that's a problem and a lot of these companies are the same way there in these small towns start up a small. startups, and they build just like defiance and now they've got.

"To sell a five or six thousand dollar rifle and do a lot of them do super huge volumes and they did a great job I mean, one of the few companies I've ever seen or if only company I've ever seen really be able to do that most of the other companies built five or six thousand dollar rifles. Myself Two hundred from maybe a thousand, a year But these guys are selling lots of guns lots of guns. Yeah. They do a great job. They just moved into a new giant warehouse and other have that little bankruptcy issue but it was I. think it was just a matter of paperwork at that point and figuring out who they're going to bank with I think. There was a little bit of a logistical thing. There I can't imagine knowing the ownership there and they've been on the show that that was there was more to that. But I think the long range game is a fun one and we've seen it try Ryan multiple times to catch on for lack of words like whether it's people who instruct whether it's people who Participate in a sport. You know we've seen so many different competition level things come in why do you think it's struggled so hard to catch on and to gain traction in that space and is it just systemic all shooting competitions or competition sports and shooting? Is it the cost? Is it an elitist thing? Where do you see it fitting I think a couple I mean first of all the cost is is definitely a barrier if you want to shoot. Well you're going to have to spend some money. You know like like we just talked about fifteen hundred dollar rifle, and then you're going to have to spend a thousand dollars maybe issue on a scope to yeah I mean it depends on you can. You can probably get a vortex for a thousand bucks in and do well in the beginning but you know as you progress and you WanNa get better you're gonNA have to get better equipment it's an expensive. thing. So that's that's the other reason but you know it's it's work to a lot of people just want to go out and playing steel. This is not necessarily that this is really a a like an art like you've got to be into it like people who get into it get really get into it. That's why I think are part of the industry, the long range partly industries. So unique it we don't we don't ebb and flow with. The market like the like the defense weapons were not a defense weapon. We didn't see you know this huge ramp up like the whole other parts of the industry saw we didn't see that in our in our little part of the industry because we're not a defense weapon, we're also see the people in our industry i. just think that they're more into it because they have to be there spending more money. It's more of an art form you know. The Art of Sniping or marksmanship is is not just going out and plinking incumbent like you gotTa know your. Dope, you gotTa know how to use the scope. You GotTa Know Your your Kit there's a lot to it. It's I I call it the hockey. Of shooting sports like it's so expensive and you you do have to start at such a novice level you know it's not like if you're a good athlete, you can get out there and probably shooting hand competition and you could do okay. You'll fling a bunch arounds but you can be quick to the spots and you can figure it out. But the long range game requires an intellectual component. Far beyond in so many ways because of the amount of things you have to process if you WANNA eventually get to the level of being able to compete being able to go on a long range hunt being able to on some of those back country hunts. I mean you have to have the a because you only get one chance a lot of times. So when you build these rifles, it's important. Understand what you're building them four and we talk about glass and building one. Can you get in the game for three? Yeah. Are you looking more like six just to kind of really feel good about yourself? Yeah, and then it goes from their phone numbers I mean you can spend ten and still be a ways away depending on the glass I mean between Schmidt and Bender and. A good long range rifle. You can be in the hall about seven Thousand Dollars Real fast and when I explained that to people, and then not even going into ammo and the loads and everything else because that's a whole fight over what caliber makes the most sense and how that works. When you get a customer I'm always curious about the customer experience when you get someone who comes to you with your experience and they say Ryan and I'm sure you get fifty times at the dinner table and friends come in. Want to build one. Why do where do you even start? I. I. I. Get actually get that question all the time, and even though we just make stocks and accessories and we don't build guns I still get question you know says nature in my my path. I honestly I don't even answer that question. Well, I mean there's so many different calibers. It's so specific to the user I'd have to spend you know thirty minutes an hour with someone just talking about what they're what they're using it for you. WanNa Hunt do you are you looking at shooting pr asked you wanted to shoot off the bench? Or are you looking at you know extreme long range short-range what's your goal You know? So there's a lot of questions to ask I mean, and there's some pretty popular calibers now six, four, five creed more, and there are some other six five variants coming out and all kinds of really cool stuff and get into freak out about it. You can get an all these wildcatters just there's endless like rabbit holes you can get in it's almost impossible. The individual really needs to do his own research and you know part. Of that researchers may be asking me a little bit about what I think but it's really the individual needs to really understand what he wants or she wants out of it and then just start plugging away your I get a sense you're like me you like listen I'll give you on go out and shoot for a little bit. Then come back to me do a little research, watch a youtube video dial in your thoughts a little bit on what you're looking at, and then we can have a conversation at least on A. A plus one level. Yeah. That's Kinda how I am yeah and. You. Know you try to have as much patience as you can. But a lot of people you know when they don't know they don't even know the right questions to ask and it's hard for me to even give him any good information because you know it takes a lot of dialogue to even get to you know what? What is important the root yeah the root of it. Yeah. It's a tough one like that. We get these questions all the time you know I'm not instructor I never pretend to be everybody who knows me knows I zero patients for that ship. I just don't have that mechanism teach there's far better teachers out there that I suggest people go to this far better lessons to learn. Can I show someone a couple of things sure have put a lot of rounds down range share does that mean I know should from China anything on the level you do or certain now that's why I go to guys like you I'm not that guy. But you get these questions all the time whether it be in the DM at the dinner table, and it's important to have a path as a company to see these people from eight to be especially the people that want to become customers, and that's the thing you always struggle with his having the patience to say, well, you know if you're thinking of getting into this, this would be something I would suggest start with know almost have cut and paste answer but there's nothing like in my opinion just saying to someone hey, grab. Gone off the wall you know borrow one of mine go out a couple of times. Set. Up is a handful ammo shoot a little bit go watch couple of youtube videos some experts out.

"Past now but his history's rate and you know it wasn't just he started the stock company. Invented these fiberglass stocks no one had seen him before and then he he moved on and started building guns and he did some great stuff for the military back in the late seventies and eighties. It's so fricking wild to me. Because I just think of those guys we have all the technology in the world now and I just think of them. In a back room somewhere in like a shop, not even a shop. Let's let's. Let's make the story better in like a barn you hammer and away and it. It's just bananas to me right like the the ability to see something that we don't have the ability to go on the Internet to to sketch out. It's just they're really changing the game and they don't even know it and they don't even get the respect. They deserve today for the things that they did. Partly because you have so much technology now in advances things but you know back then it was such charter to hammer and Chisel my grandfather started his business on his dining room table imagine imagine a poxy material that literally is it turns from go into this hard material, your dining room tables literally just caked now what does poxy? Yeah he's like in the Barn I use that analogy all the time just figuring it out and there's so much time and family diamond so much shit lost. Now you fall into it you come along where you like I want to run with this or were you like Well. So the the story goes, I got out of the military I went to work with my dad and McMillan He took over the company sometime in the eighties and you know my dad and I just couldn't really figure out how to work together. Well. So ultimately, I ended up doing my own thing which turned out to be Grebo our reactor as well and so that's that's kind of how that was I would have been happy to. Take on that Macmillan name for it. In a different way you know I think everybody has their own path and I was just really eager to do something. You Know My dad was in a different place in his life. He was you know kind of older guy had worked his whole life. You just wanted to kind of a little bit and so that wasn't what I wanted and so I just kind of moved on and started my own thing. I think that's so noble and I wasn't going to bring it up unless you are. I think it's so noble to want to forge your own path and do your own thing and make your own mark and. It's crazy to me because we live in such a crazy time right now where people. Everybody's looking for the easy way. And everybody's looking for the cop out and everybody's looking for the simple turn like I'll just go work for dad or. I'll go do this. You decide to take something on. That I think is is a big project I mean taking on a stock stocks are tough and that whole line of business is tough. I mean I've had the guys on from gun works I've talked to a lot of different people that long range game is tough. It's it's hard to make a buck in it. You GotTa Hustle you gotTa work hard because there W-. There was this huge influx of people don't understand the long range world who are listening and Ryan can better explain it. But the way I saw it from a marketing perspective we saw come in everybody was trying to do these big three, four thousand dollars setups. But then of course, it comes in and they're doing a fifteen hundred dollar you know long range gun now. Did the cats out of the bag, but they're going to do long action next but you know, I think the bottom's fallen out of that market and it's going to be inexpensive to create a really great long range rifle and part of that is innovation that machining part of that is creation and there's always gonna be a place for the gun works as the world and the companies like that. That are doing real boot tiki stuff and I think there's a place for it, but it's a tough business and that's that's what makes it so interesting to me because that is a hard nut to crack the long range market. Dude. You just you totally hit the nail on the head like. As technology advances as machining gets better as people get better as we learn like gun prices and I've seen it over my fifteen years in the industry have just fallen. It's real getting really hard to sell high end rifles because you can build a fifteen hundred dollar rifle, even a thousand dollar rifle and make it shoot at an at least an. EMO. Way. Maybe even half Moha like it used to be when I first got into the industry people were guaranteeing m one mo way I'm like, oh my gosh. Okay that's great. Now, if you don't shoot 'em away, you can't even sell a gun. You know what I mean and it's it is it is taking the you know the whole industry has. and. We both know this ninety. So when people start talking about sub away in barrels, I'm like. Ninety nine percent of the barrels out there shoot sub MOH, because they're all using the same fucking machines out there to make the bowels and there's like four barrel makers and the whole planet we both know that and I tried to explain to people. Unless your competing at a high level. You're in the military at a high level, sniper? Sandra. Or you're hunting. At a high level. And you're shooting thousand yard plus most of these people that by this stuff or don't fully understand it you you're gonNA, be fine. With most of the barrels that are out there in the universe and it's it they totally overthinking. Go Out and buy you know a thousand dollar proof not that proofs about skype product. You know for the most part, you can get something really good young at the right price point, and that's the nature of where the market's going and sig be and a leader in the industry is always going to set the tone. Does that mean? They're the best? Not Necessarily, I'm a big Fan. But at the same time, you know it's a fifteen hundred dollars bulk on. It's going to be a great bulk on they're gonNA do a good job getting people in. There's always going to be a place for the gun works as the world degrade of the world in certain folks that are going to try to come in I think it's going to be a lot harder for some of the bigger conglomerates like the Sax and everything else to jump in. And try to be an in-between what you guys are and what sick that's where they're going to structure no-man's-land there in no-man's-land, it's really tough and you know companies like gun works. You're spot on with gun works. Those companies will always well I say, always, if as long as they continue on the path that they're going they'll have business because in our industry and especially I think in long-range brand matters. So. Gun works has created a great brand, right so you buy a ten thousand dollar package including a scope from them maybe something similar you could get you know for three or four thousand dollars with the scope having your gunsmith, build it the the shooter is probably never going to know the difference. Right? He's when he holds that gun works gun he's got that good feeling of Dick rose three inches. And you know and then you've got the gun works Service or what do to make to make the customer feel like a part of their team that's what gun works does some companies some companies are a marketing company that sells guns. Some people are a gun company tries to market gun works as a customer service company that sells guns their experiences. Amazing. They did something that you know in the market that I that I hadn't haven't seen since is. Being able.

Flying here got a special guest today I'm excited and I do want to thank you guys for leaving reviews. We already started getting into it, but we talked a little too much before the show which always scares me. Because I get into a before the show everybody knows this but I had an awesome time just chatting with him and even getting to know him a little bit sharing some of those same mutual friends. He's a veteran. He's gotTa Company that I started to get familiar with but everybody knows I'm a little weak in the long range thing but hill educate me. You don't say former he's a seal. Never say former right now. The one and only. Ryan mckellen Macmillan. mcmillen, right you say. Yeah. So this is exciting dude. Haven't you in here I mean we could get into all the quintessential seal stores but we're not. We're not GONNA do that. I've heard them all. So tell me start back with the brand in how you got to this place with the brand and what made you want to get in this godforsaken industry for whatever reason and how that happened. Well, I don't think I. Really had much of a choice I mean I was kind of born into the industry, my grandfather. Fiberglass stock gale gale McMillan. He invented it in nineteen started working on it in the late sixties they started McMillan fiberglass stocks in in Nineteen seventy-three I I grew up in that business I grew up. That was what you know. My family talked about around the dinner table. So it was just kind of in my blood after I got out military you know I went and I, worked for the family business for a while and it just it just something that I love because you know the great thing about making stocks. It's like there's so much to do. There's so much you can do with it You know you've got the design you can think of the design you've got your working with different materials we got we work with carbon fiber we work with fiberglass we work with aluminum all the entire process of making a stock is really cool. There's it's not just like one simple thing we do. We're not like distribution and we we receive a product and then ship a product I mean we do it from start to finish. So from concept all the way to distribution branding marketing production process I mean we we do it all. So that's that's really the challenge to us is you know making that happen was your passion long range shooting. My Passion. Yeah. I would say that of anything my passion, we'd be long range shooting almost by default though I didn't like grow up shooting range, of course, shot little bit with my with family and stuff. But but you know I was I did some sniper stuff in the teams I did some salt stuff in the team. So I did a little bit of bowl. So I wasn't like a full blown night. You know it wasn't like a totally on the sniper side the teams. So when I got out though, but knowing that my family's history, you know knowing that that's where. My grandfather knew some of the original plank owners seal team, six guys I mean. That's how close that was. Part of the reason part of the reason why I went to the teams is because that history so you know I just of kind of fell into it a little bit but I love it it's great and fits my personality. You know there's a difference between an assault or a sniper, the different mentalities, assault and breaches it really aggressive. They're really extreme type. A. Personalities which is the teams need that type of person and you've got the snipers who are more methodical and that's kind of. That's kind of you're you're a super chill dude I get that about you. You seem like you know how to turn it off. It's in there. You know that's a good. That's actually fucking really good thing. Yeah. I think there are group some of the seals are like that. You know they're they can turn not that they can turn dom can turn it on their guys like dominant Chris, Carlin, Eddie Penny, they're they're intense and you know those guys really drove the team's as far as I'm concerned, they drove the teams and they drove the teams as they were in the front of the you know of the pack driving but you also need the guys to who are who are methodical and ended up being your snipers and and Just mellowed out. Yeah. That's what that's kind of where I the role that I fit and I feel like. I love these stories you now you mentioned your grandfather. To me and this is really important because. There's so many guys and it's not a secret anymore Ernie Emerson's out there and the training that he's done and what he's participated in through the years those stories start to like trickle out and bubble to the surface of some of these guys that have been behind the scenes. There's guys like your grandfather that you know develops these brands and develop these products. That are been utilized for years and years and years behind the scenes. There's so many of these great stories of guys that not just supported teams or special operations or other things, but they were just involved in the evolution of things and development of things in the RND and find that. So fucking cool because back when they were doing it, it was like. Territory. Now, we have the template in the roadmap for all things, right? Because it's out there because the Internet and everything else but those guys were operating in the dark like a chisel in fucking back room. I have some some cool stories about my grandfather, I? He know the M forty, one at the Marine Corps built was really the. Birth of the modern sniper rifle. That was really the first rifle in you know in American or probably world history that was dedicated solely for the art of sniping my grandfather was A. they. He had contacted them to help to help them build it. My grandfather spent most of his younger years. Competition shooting. So he grew up loving shooting knowing the art of shooting and back in the seventy s or sixty s early seventies they didn't know. Make an accurate rifle. So he helped him on that. Then he then started working with the plank owners at seal team six building specialty guns for them and the early eighties I mean. He's got some really cool histories.

The Only Black Pastor In Town Wasn't Invited To A Black Lives Matter March
"Church in tiny Lake City, Colorado, needed a pastor a couple of years ago, Brendan MacMillan took the job and moved there with his wife and seven Children. I would say overall, the town has been very receptive of our family, and the reason is that when it comes to ministry and the role that I believe God has asked me to do then race doesn't matter. Not everyone in Lake City is white. In some here, we're proud one. About 50 of the town's 400 residents turned out for a black lives matter March in June. But nobody invited McMillan despite other faith leaders being asked to attend, he says. It sounds like potential Saturday night Live sketch and first is quite comical. But I would say that my feelings were hurt just a little bit, but more so I would chuck that office. Exposing some of the areas That might be problematic in like city or mountain towns. Blind spots we made this march is an act of solidarity, but we also do not do our best to reach out to black people in community. 21 year old Caleb Chambers was one of the organizers of the march in avoiding Organization of our black population.

There are other things that he did for me that. Other men hadn't done the book and the movie how Stella got a group back. How close to the story is it? Is that this story no because? A lot of people don't understand. I finished the book before job got off the plane to come to California. The book was finished. Okay before he even came to California okay, it was a fantasy it was you projecting into the future. Trying to give myself permission to say, it's okay to go out with this young man, even though I was old enough to be his mother, and it was dealing with the whole double standard issue that you end, do it, and no one asked. Is he trying to marry his daughter right, and so that was sort of what it was. It was giving myself an opportunity to do. What made me feel good and not worry about what people thought. I think when you listen to Terry carefully. You can hear her say. She wrote the Book in defense of being able to explain herself that this kind of relationship would be okay for her, so she was already defensive about it. She was already projecting. What other people would think about it? I've known Terry McMillan through her work and her art in her. Talent and her books. And I was surprised that she number one wanted to come on TV and talk about this. Okay Jonathan coming out. Let us meet you. Even more surprised that Jonathan wanted to come on. And talk about it. This is your chance to say to the world. Were you lying to Terry about your sexuality all those six years? I was in line about my sexuality. You were not lying. So first of all, it's pretty apparent to me and I think a lot of other people that you know. Something else was going on.

And I'm so angry because the damage is done I blank each and every one of them everyone that had anything to do with. It I can't give him forty. This is what I know for sure I know that if you allow the past. Define your present that you never actually really get to live the life that you were meant to live because you're always holding onto what was and always holding and finding yourself. What was or what should have been or what could have been? and. One of the best lessons for me with this is learning that revenge is another way that the ego shows itself when you think that you deserve to be treated a certain way, think you deserve to have things a certain way. You think that you deserve. Deserve. Deserve deserve, and other people have done you wrong instead of again living from the true self now. We all know Terry McMillan when she wrote.

Good Day right. That's you gotta check in day by day right one day at a time. They truly today's a good day so far so good. Okay just to give us a little bit background before we get into your career. Let's talk pandemic because what else can we talk about? How is it affecting you and your salon and those that work for you? What do you the Salon closed? I'm assuming this law is closed and I think I was the first or second salon. I was the first big salon in Los Angeles to close. It was somewhere like the it was march tenth or twelfth somewhere around there. It was a Wednesday. I've been kind of flip flopping because I work with Jennifer Aniston obviously and I've been working on the morning show with her and we went back to season two of the morning show and we worked on Monday and we worked on Tuesday and Tuesday. Everything kind of fell a little weird. I realized around the set. It started getting real. Yeah and I went to work on Wednesday at the salon because we weren't going to go back till Friday and so I went to the salon and it also felt weird that day and then while I was at the salon I got a email. That production has shut down. We will not be working on Friday and we will assess the situation and and let you know so and you like so. You are early to deciding to close. Yeah Salon closed as Lonzo Wednesday. I canceled my last two clients because once you get me personally once I get something in my brain. I'm a HYPOCHONDRIAC so I I couldn't get out of there fast enough. I cancelled by last two clients and Wednesday. I decided to close the salon down. Yeah how are your stylists like handling it and the people that clean your salon and all your workers. What's going on with them? So as far as the Stylus. They're all independent contractors and I speak with all of them. I call five of them every day and I got to say I do. Nancy Meyers hair the director. Yeah and she was already seven days in quarantine by Wednesday and by Friday she. She kept telling me she's like Chris. You GotTa get out of there Chris. You need lockdown Chris. You need to shut she goes. You're a leader in the hair community. You need to set an example and I got it really give. Nancy Meyers a lot of credit for the move that I made by Friday shutting my salon down. I let people stay in their Saturday in finish out there week but I was not there so yes. Everyone is the beauty industry not only as my salon affected and all the hairdressers are pretty much a paycheck to paycheck. Kind of business. You know. They're independent contractors. So they're not employees. The only employees that I have are my salon manager my front desk girls and my cleaning crew other than that everyone else is independent contractors so thankfully as a salon owner the circle that I have to worry about is my salon manager is the cleaning crew and the front desk girl which I still have the front desk girls working. And you're checking in with everybody. Who's the contractors? So yeah that's good advice and I'm checking in with like all my independent contractors. I've I've been there twenty years so I have a really great relationship with my landlord. That's yeah so he knows I've never missed a payment and I've done nothing but make that building more beautiful and and so he's great. He's fine and he's that I'm here. Whatever you need just you know. We'll figure out the payments when we come back. You don't have to pay me until you guys get back up and running so it's Great. I'm you know I think there's been a lot of love out there and a lot of people willing to help right. I think I think people are really connecting to a human interaction rather than governmental or financials or banks and stuff like that Were trust to each other's humans right now. We're not trusting. I'm not watching the news. You know what I mean. Yeah it's scary because they don't know what's going on. Yeah if something happens. I'm GONNA find out. We're not in a bubble right. News is traveling through humans communicating. Like this right now on a computer and I think we're getting really good information like this in a grid the Brady bunch were the Brady Bunch. Were Chatting Brady Bunch style these days? It's so crazy that like we're having this conversation. I'm looking at you in upper right corner. Jeter my upper left to their producers You know you are looking at. You've you've got like you're a little headphones on in your house. But you are. You're a businessman your salon owner. But you're also you know it's ten so corny saying this celebrity hairstylist. I feel like I'm reading. You Know People magazine boldface Celebrity Hairstyles hairstylists to the stars Chris. Mcmillan you are the rare hairstylist. Who is a hybrid of all of these things I mean how did you plan to become like a salon owner? Did you plan to do celebrities hair like did you? What was your end goal? My plan was to do five people's hair a day and charge them hundred dollars each so I would make five hundred dollars a week. I would make two thousand dollars a month and so then I would rent an apartment for a thousand to twelve hundred dollars a month. I would get a car that I think I was looking at like Volkswagen's or something that was like two fifty a month so that's how I thought about it that way. I was able to do what I do like. I always kept that SORTA That's how my brain I'm a real believe it or not. I'm a real simple thing. And it just snowballed from there of that happen. You don't charge your hundred bucks for haircut anymore you know. I was given opportunities to prove myself and I've always taken advantage of those opportunities. I truly from the bottom of my heart was meant to do hair. I really was. Who's hair have you been doing that like the longest like who is the first person that got this one hundred dollar haircut my mall okay? My mom always had bleached blond hair. Fair Faucet like my mom always had kool hair always. That was her thing. Gio is a great hair. She loved her hair stylist. Nick she always had great hair. She was pregnant with me. And that's the first hair salon. I went that I worked at was Nicole's in Manhattan beach on Tenth Manhattan Avenue when I graduated high school like the day the next day. I worked there because I had my licence. Oh wow you were like in it to win it yeah I. My mom was like you doing here. I'm like but they're gay and she's like yeah. You're my gay son. I've known since you were too. It's okay you'll be fine while okay that you told me I remember you said. You have some client. I want to say her name is barb. Bonnie Greider Oh Bonnie Bonnie Bonnie writer lives. It's so funny. Her daughter texted me yesterday. As I as everything. Okay I was like. How's your mom and is a body? Greider is a third grade teacher in San Pedro and she has a standing appointment with me since eighteen years old. Every my gosh. She gets her haircut and I still charge her. I basically doer for free. I talked to her sixty sixty five dollars for a haircut and she tip speed thirty five. Oh my God and she comes here salon she could come to my salon and even Gen does like Shaquille. Can you come to my house on Friday at four to blow dry my hair? I'm Bonnie Jennifer Aniston knows about Bonnie generators and knows about bunnies is aggregate. Do Bonnie and then come over this camp. Would I got mega celebrity? Jennifer come to your salon just like a regular person. You always go to her all the time. She loves it so like she might. She might be behind. Bonnie like waiting to check out no she took check. I set my soul on as an old nineteen thirties bungalow house. So it's very private anyway. So it's very easy and comfortable for people like Jennifer to come and get their hair done and I am kind to like in the center so she knows everybody that works with me. Everybody knows I do her hair. So it's not like nobody's bothering her and everyone does that. I'll kill them if they do that. Like all ends. I got a sharpie asking for an autograph. Nobody is the you know every now and then you'll see like someone walked by like. Oh I'm just checking my messages in l. But I'll I'll check them. I'll be like excuse me and they're like sorry. I'm sorry. Sorry the phone away. Have you really done that have you? Have you really checked somewhat? Of course that's how he stays in the bids right this long. I have to think though Bonnie's been around since you were eighteen age. You okay there. You go do some math people. But that means you've seen her through a lot of trends and styles your other clients regret any of the like styles or cuts you've given anyone in the past not really. I've always gravitated. I think I think I have. I'm not like trying to prove myself and do something crazy and be the most creative. I really truly do want people to look the best that they can look but I also do love change like Linda Evangelista when she had long hair and she went short la that change. She looked just as good. You know and I watched you know Madonna Gino and her changes in and people like that like I always been influenced by change. I remember ruined. My mom had long. You know she had like Pamela Anderson Farah Fawcett hair and she came. Back with highlighted. Low Lighted Cheryl teague hair And then and then from that she you know like in the eighties. She cut her hair short and it was sort of like the Lori L. Freehold Moose campaign like my mom came back as Rachel Ward. You're no character and so I've seen really beautiful changes like. That's the kind of change as I like to see. I'm not trying to like be dramatic in and prove myself through hair but I like to change people's hair like my own that has like feathered hair.

"And just love to sit and listen right yeah. That's the experience that I want more that longer formed thing and we're seeing that transition start art to happen a little bit or the path Saturday verging a little bit in visual media. Do you think do you see that or is it happening already. Am I not paying attention. It's been happening for years. I think it's all sort of happening. All the time. Link singles are really good for getting people's attention but you know different artists have played with different sort of idea some just put out singles and then some are actually putting out very large records because they've you're talking just from financial you know benefit standpoint. It's beneficial for someone to listen to one song and listen to another song at another one and another one and so if you put out a record twenty tracks if they like it. They'll stay on your record. I think Drake Wa that came out the massive wreck. Yelich can't remember how many tracks were on it but I think so. They're sort of not to make it about finances but that's sort of what drives the format really technology in the way you monetize technology so it's easier to monetize a single or it has been but at the same time all of a sudden it's like people do want more and so if you're able to put out more content than people will listen all the way through. I think my fans like albums and maybe because I've always been more of an album an album artist. I like albums to list vinyls great because it's hard to to flip tip from songs song on Vinyl. Put the needle down. You've gotTA listen all the way through. I love that you know I mean for me like growing up like a lot of my favorite songs. Were not my favorite songs right away. I had to hear them three or four times before I really connected to the song and I don't think that happens as much anymore. With a singles culture you know and I and the algorithms it's almost like like sugar like a SEC. We put more sugar in the bread. More sugar in the meet at a point is just all sugar you know so. I guess it's a both anti Santa like it's a singles culture and an album culture. I think people bounce back and forth and probably when you hear a single and you fall in love with that artist you just want more material anyway but it it is a little more difficult to maintain people's attention and putting out singles is great because it's like posting on instagram. You forgot what I posted yesterday but a better post something today so some some people full put out like a single a month or a single week I in the future. I may put out albums dancing girls. I'm considering that now. That has studio my house. I'm put out a record and then put out your yeah singles that aren't connected to the ring throughout the year. You know so yeah I don't know. I don't know where it's going yeah. That'd be fun fun to watch listen. It's fun. It's fun to get in you know these kinds of prestige shows through that either might make it or might not but at least there's a lot of content out there.

I i in no way pre-selected these with you and murray and having prefaces to mark these either these cards are are either like delightful and a lot of fun like year old bike sell group bible study days when you oh you know what was your favorite. What did you wanna be when you were a kid or very awkward and personal there random so we don't know which ones you're all right so here's the first question ready john mcmillan. Do you have more mother or father. Issues kamran the more mother or father issues. I would have to say more father issues probably but i think really hard about it. Oh gosh how how deep do you wanna go guys. Hey i should you should know this that question is specifically asking about mother and father magazine and how many issues you yeah well first of all i have a great relationship with both of my parents i agree with both of my parents but if i have to answer the question region immediately i'd say i have more father issues. Some allow like my dad which is raid then sometimes. I'm like oh man. I'm turning into my dad but i also the other day. I realized that my my mom is like the greatest person who ever existed like she is the most awesome person i also realized she also also packed my lunch until i was a senior in high school. She was doing my laundry out. If i realize is oh man my mom has been like my greatest support in also she may be she may have caused some issues with me and my wife life because my wife was not pack my lunch. She does not love doing laundry. She does my laundry stump bushy l. attack yet but i don't know so. Maybe the honest answer is i don't know issues with both of them and they're awesome. What do you look more often for the tragedy and comedy or the comedy and tragedy. I'm always looking for the tragedy. I'm like i'm like hopeless. When it comes to that like i i like to entertain negative emotions for recreation. Sometimes it's terrible mark mark. I'm a i'm a four. I'm sheera for you. What's the four again. I can't remember the needs to be special artists. Oh okay yeah the the people with swoopy hair and and the people who will entertain sadness for fun who regularly recreationally liked to be sad and angry great that's so it seems like such a cliche doesn't it. I know i am cliche. Big risk took last big risk that took. I'll i mean i know this wasn't directed at me but i invested a lot in the last mega millions and didn't work out a significant risk for me my family. That didn't pan out so we're all..
