Are we going to meet our vaccination target or what?
"Hello this is karina. Cost a daily podcast. All about the coronavirus. I'm health reported teigen thailand physician and journalists dr norman swan. It's wednesday the third of march and norman. We're already more than a week into our vaccine. Roll out here in australia. Which makes us old hands at it now but there were reports over the past few days. That strategy hasn't quite met the targets that i was expecting to in terms of numbers. Vaccinations delivered in this first week. And we've got a pretty big target for october as being sort of the end of the roll out the end of the first big sizes of the rollout. What are some of the issues that have cropped up. I mean it's such early days. It feels a little unfair to stop critiquing the performance when we're on the awakened but what are some of the issues that have been identified as maybe slowing us down a bit. So far rove is clearly been a major cities of hiccups with the commonwealth rollout in aged care. As we've been saying in current cast in fact the main game is boorda. Workers airport workers flight crew and hotel quarantine workers and what we should be doing but we're not as their families in households. So that's the main game securing our borders. And doing that hyper quickly. And you've really got to do that with the vaccine because it's going to take you twelve weeks to complete it with the astra and it's not going to be as good coverage with the with the new variant possibility so there's been a cold up in aged care because the commonwealth doesn't run anything have his own services therefore they've got a contract they probably should have contracted it to the states. But they've going into private providers and been cups which have been well publicized so it's to take the commonwealth a bit of time to get their act together and also some of the states have been a little bit slow so this combination of supply of scene. But also as marion kane or imply. Just today the bookings haven't gone quite as quickly as they imagined. And they could cope with more bookings. And i think there's been a hint of that in some other jurisdictions so people have got to come forward when they're booked and have that but around the world there has been a problem with people. Not turning up for bookings people don't turn up for their appointments and that means that you have a system in place where you've got people on standby people that you can take a. We've got jobs over. can you. At five o'clock in unexpectedly get your vaccine. So we saw we had the new south wales primary gladys and yesterday criticizing the maybe lack of communication between the states and federal government. Is there improvements. That could be made there. Probably and the minister of sought yesterday to have a press conference which is probably in part induced. By the new south wales premier having criticized the federal government for not being clear with the doses. And how they're going to arrive. I mean i think some of the surprise here is that if i had a long time to develop this. And it's still not clear how the next phases are going to be rolled out how people are going to be told what booking system is going to be like. Gp is still not clear how they're going to work into it. They've had their letter saying they've been accepted as a as a center for you know the practice to deliver vaccines but even then the ph primary health. Networks are often not clear whether or not the four thousand six hundred practices are indeed the ones that will end up doing it. So there's a fair bit of uncertainty another area of uncertainties that third pretty good administration stopping doctors commenting on the relative efficacy of vaccines. Because they're calling it. Advertising saying the vaccine come to my practice sits behind that there's a lot influx. We'll get our act together. We're good immunizing country. People will come. Forward is just that. We don't want to lose momentum.

A lot of people put in a lot of effort to get this up and running. And i'm just so proud of what we have been able to achieve. Now we've heard a lot about training. How different is dealing with this pfizer. Vaccine from pooping call for measles australia. One of the major things which is different is one. This is an ultra. Low temperature require the cold chain requirements at different and in addition we have to use multi. Does files and in australia. Multi smiles have not been used much at all and this is a very very precious product and so we want to make sure that we maximise the number of doses that we can get out of a multi file so for the fis vaccine. That is that we aim to take out six doses out of fat multi file which is a challenge because we constantly do not have what a cold low dead space needles overloaded space syringes. That are family style absolutely great and they are able to reliably get sixty six out of multidex files. Solo did space. Needle is nato where. There's not a bit of a minimum amount of vaccine. That's left in it after it's been completely delib is correct correct and so we want to make sure with. Everybody gets exactly the dose that they need. And if you don't have a low dead space being you have vaccine that is lifting the end. The person does not get the full amount or you cannot get the full dose of the vaccine pulled out of the multi vile and you've got to go to w. correct so. This is a complex process. So i'll pharmacy staff. They spent one week specifically training for this to make sure that they abide by be cold chain requirements which has significant in addition to make sure that they use the proper aseptic technique. So that they don't have any contamination of vile that occurs and then they practiced and practiced and practiced to make sure with dummy vials to make sure that they could get the appropriate number of doses. Out of that multi vile.

What had quickly become known as the epicenter of Corona virus was one of the first ones to volunteer to come here. And I'm glad I did. And she worked for the life care center in Puyallup when she learned the Kirkland facility had been ravaged by the coronavirus patients, and even more staff were testing positive here. I called here. Hey, I want to help. I want to be there helping you. Within three hours of that call. She was inside the baker unit at the life Care center assigned to 18 patients, her family and friends worried for her safety. She never got sick, right? I never really worried about. It was just too busy to even really think about it because there was work that needed to be done. Lombard knew 10 of the residents who lost their lives. It's hard.

US bombs facilities in Syria used by Iran-backed militia.
"I'm anthony davis. United states launched air strikes in syria on thursday targeting facilities near the iraqi border used by iranian backed militia groups. The pentagon said the strikes were retaliation for a rocket attack iraq earlier this month that killed one civilian contractor and wounded a us servicemember and other coalition troops. The strike was the first military action undertaken by the biden administration. Which in its first weeks has emphasized. It's intense to put more focus on the challenges posed by china even as middle east threats. Persist decision to attack. Syria did not appear to signal an intention to widen. Us military involvement in the region but rather to demonstrate a will to defend us troops in iraq earlier the pentagon spokesman john kirby said us action was a proportionate military response taken together with diplomatic measures including consultation with coalition partners. The operation sends an unambiguous message. President biden will act to protect american and coalition personnel. Kirby said at the same time we have acted in a deliberate
Israel Begins Phased Reopening To Citizens With Proof Of 2 COVID-19 Shots
"Life might be like as the pandemic lessons. It is vaccinated a higher portion of his citizens than any other country, about a third of had both doses. And this week is real started opening new doors to people who've had their shots. NPR's Daniel Estrin reports that includes places like gyms and the theater. Many businesses in Israel still aren't ready to open. But it's opening night at the first Israeli Indoor theater to put on a play after months of lockdown, Adam thinking and usher at Jerusalem's fun theater checks, tickets and something called a green pass, just taking their green a passport. It's called Check that they have been vaccinated or that there were sick and then the better Israelis one week after their second shot or recovered from the virus can print out a government issued green Pass. With their I d number and a Q R code. This is all very new. The Usher doesn't have a scanner, so he holds up the pass and asked the mostly senior age theatergoers. To recite their I d numbers by heart to make sure no one's cheating. Just make sure to make sure that they're not for you. Someone else's you know, it's not a picture. If you don't have a green pass, you can't see the show. Tear to post Glinski and or REITs. Come here come early. We feel its pioneers mean it doesn't matter what they're performing. We've come It's been way too long Since we were here. Do you feel safer, knowing that everyone in the audience will be with a green past? That's essential. It would have been worrisome if we had to sit in a closed theater with lots of people breathing at us. If we didn't know they both got both vaccines. We've been waiting for people to take responsibility and do that. Not everyone has. Vaccinations are available to all Israeli adults. But 40% of those in their twenties haven't done it. Some think they're healthy and don't need it. Others have heard false rumors of bad side effects. The promise of a green pass is a popular incentive. You can't get into a hotel theater or Jim without one. The vaccination center in the city of Petra Tikva. A D. Sheer nervously waits in line. The only reason that I'm going to get this vaccine is because I want to go to the gym. So it works. The pressure works. Yes, the pressure works way stop by a nearby gym and watch a young man still not fully vaccinated. Get turned back at the entrance. While 50 year old of fear on the El finishes his first wait routine in a year. I feel safe for now. I don't know what will be in 22 years. I want to leave now next door. There are hardly any vaccines for Palestinians in the West Bank in Gaza in Israel, the issue is that some Israelis refused to get vaccinated. One lawyer representing vaccine refuse ear's says some employers threatened to fire them or put them on unpaid leave until they agree to get vaccinated. There was a similar dilemma at the theater director hoodie Ben Moshe says his stage manager, and some actors didn't want to get vaccinated. So he pleaded for us both for us. We want to work. They want to come back and work. Please do it for us, and he says they agreed. Now, an hour before curtain. The director is worrying about something else that scared the death tonight.

Halo TV show will air in 2022, alongside Star Trek
"So viacomcbs held its big investor presentation paramount plus which is rebranded and rebooted version of an existing service called. Cbs all access. What did we get yesterday yesterday. There was this three. Plus our event designed to unveil the scope of paramount plus says this revamped version of cbs. All access in a kind of inauspicious. Start this event that was supposed to talk about how the company is going to be really competitive and streaming ended up starting half an hour late because they were having problems streaming so that wasn't a great place to start but generally the main focus last night was squarely on programming all the titles that they're going to be creating the originals the exclusives movies and shows that they're going to be leading into sort of cbs's stable of networks and brands and intellectual property in order to hopefully they hope draw new subscribers to service that has been around almost since the very beginning of services like this. Yeah let's take into that. Because cbs all access has largely been known for shows like star trek discovery and well star trek card and star trek. Lower deck's star trek. What else are we gave from paramount. Plus it how does it differ from. Was he this. All access had been about the last two years. Generally i would say that. The basic proposition of paramount plus is pretty similar to cbs. All access some of the things that make. Cbs all access a little bit. Different from other streaming services is baked into ciba's access. You get a live feed of Your local cbs channel most streaming on demand streaming services. Don't have both. I kind of live and on demand element integrated within them. That doesn't really change paramount. Plus the things that are going to be changing. Like i said it's really about how they're trying to expand people's concept of what's this entire company a includes and so what that is that they're going to be making a lot more originals based on things from comedy central and tv from nickelodeon there's going to be a rugrats boot and an entire new studio dedicated to avatar the last air bender Universe shows in shorts and movies and they're going to be leading really hard into the paramount. Pictures movie studio that the company also owns. They're going to be reviving some franchises from that movie studios past and they're also going to be bringing a few of paramount pictures new theatrical movies to permit plus to stream earlier than would be normal. This is nothing like hbo. Max streaming every single warner brothers. New movie the same day as it hit theaters but subscribers to promote plus a will have the opportunity to stream movies like quietly to the new mission impossible mission impossible. I think at seven on the of subscribers will be able to stream that basically a month and a half after those movies hit theaters. So for example quiet place equal you'll be able to stream in november. That's not as aggressive as as some other services but it does change the proposition. Little bet from what people were used to. Cvs all access right and so. Let's get some details. How what is the service actually launched and home was the cost and did it does it differ from. What's he has. All access was charging. Yeah well this is something. I was kind of surprised that this is going to be such a confusing transition. What's happening is in one week on march fourth they will essentially replace. Cbs all accesses premium tier with paramount plus in a launch on the fourth in the us and across countries some countries in latin america as a ten dollar a month subscription. And that gives you everything on the service. Add freight then in june going to widen paramount plus to be sickly launched a cheaper ad-supported limited tier. That's five dollars month so that's comparable with similar tier that's already on. Cbs all access. So both of the services have these kind of like cheaper ad-supported tears and premium more expensive inclusive tears but ammo plus is going to be rolling them out in. This staggered way which is going to create some confusion for current subscribers and also perspective subscribers know. There's going to be period of a few months where there's going to be multiple apps that have the cbs name in them was have the paramount name in them. And it's going to be hard. It's not as simple proposition for consumers to figure out what they wanna get and where they can actually get it with all those moving parts happening at once so we saw out some difficulty with. Hbo max when hbo max launched last year when they had not only at hbo max as an app out in the market but hbo go and hbo now still existed as made that transition. That was a really bumpy road for them for a while. Because of consumer confusion now add in the element that there is not only just like. Hey there's one subscription it's one price none of that change now. Add in the fact that you've got to tears which launches at one time one of which doesn't launch until another time and those things have different. They unlock different. So it does seem like it's setting up a really a really bumpy transition for them to

It turns out I use ethernet over power adapters tp-link devices off because my office is like the complete opposite end of the house from the internet connection and to get it here. I didn't run ethernet. I just use ethernet over power and I've been using it for years and there's Bob Background like crackle for a while and I couldn't pinpoint what it was and I thought it was cables crossing over or something like that. And also the internet in this room is 50% of what it should be like a nice day for like hundred hundred and ten Meg or something. I get 4850 something like that. And when the kids are out one day, I unplugged loads of things and Shuffle things around and it turned out it was off the ethernet over power device, which has a through socket was plugged into a four-way thing and I moved it. So it's plugged directly in the wall magically met audio problem goes away a my internet is now twice as fast. That's all I did. The only thing that changed was me moving the ethernet over power socket to be plugged directly in the wall. Suddenly everything faster and better well great.

Interview with Jessica Lessin
"Jessica thank you for joining me and welcome to skin from the couch. Thanks for having me carly. I love listening to this podcast. So i'm thrilled to be here. I was saying just as you got kinda miked up. Its feels very weird to be on the other side of interviewing journalists like you but we're going to jump into it which is first question. I'm a standard question. Skim your resume. I wanted to be a reporter For as long as i can remember and had a series of internships starting in high school at my local newspaper where i wrote about why there were so many nail salons and how they could all stay in business so didn't really have a sense of supply and demand back then but was interested in in poking my nose around i then interned at the associated press the boston globe and the wall street journal and clung to that internship so that they would not let me leave the building and convince them to hire me so i worked as a tech reporter at the journal for eight years covering everything from the rise of online video to apple to google yahoo the rise of the internet. If you will that be took me out to san francisco and then after eight years at the journal i loved covering the tech industry and it seemed to me. That tac was disrupting news in very very fundamental ways most significantly. It was getting publishers obsessed with online advertising and traffic in a way that i felt was really lowering. The quality of news content and so i launched the information as a subscription business to swing back to quality over quantity and i guess seven years in We have one of the largest newsrooms of tech reporters around the world in her breaking major stories every day. We're going to dig into so much of that. But i'm curious. What would people be surprised to learn about you. I think probably many many things. But probably that i never ever ever thought i was going to start a company i actually remember grousing to my husband. You know maybe a decade ago. Why is everyone leaving. Big company jobs to start a company in the world be better if they were adding their talents and energies sort of into the traditional system. So i i. I think even wrote a story at the journal about like you know. There are too many entrepreneurs or something to that vein but you know lo and behold eventually you catch the edge and i think the world is just made starting a company so i was gonna say appealing but as you know carly times is quite tough Be anything appealing but it just felt like there was a huge opportunity and i went for it but it was quite a swing from sort of being very down on entrepreneurship to becoming one. You mentioned in your skin of your bio that you began your journalism career at a young age and went onto the crimson while. You're harvard We're able to turn internship into a job at the journal. I think that the one of the most popular questions that we get asked. How do i turn my internship into the full-time. What is your advice on how to do that. Don't leave the buildings that was really my advice and so i kind of lucked out. Because i was working on this big project. It was on the salary data that the government was putting out it a once in every year report about what was having to wages across a huge number of jobs and i had planned a really big feature with my editor on this and they push back the release date and so i said i i got it right this story you know you don't wanna miss this big feature in the journal you had an approval process for big features in the had been approved and all of that and so you know my internship was supposed to be up august whatever. The data was coming out first week in september and i just sort of made the case to literally extend my security badge access

"Day. One is in the books at the state's newest mass vaccination center at the Natick Mall, and we're underway again, and word is it's been pretty smooth sailing so far. If you can get an appointment, Debbie lives near the new mass vaccination site of the Natick Mall. I live here and the condos in the mall. Yeah, I'd say that's pretty close. Problem is she can't book an appointment We've been online for in the morning. By the time you put in your information gone, it's no surprise. That right now is particularly tough to find a time here. Heather Praveen Oh, from lab core. The company managing this site says they're doing a slow ramp up with only 100 doses per day. This first week, 500 the next and eventually 5000. I know appointment seem at the premium now, but just keep at it, and we'll get everybody there, but make sure that they wait until they do have an appointment. Not exactly what Debbie was hoping to hear when she showed up. She understands It's frustrating that you know what this other people ahead of me that need it
New York Gov. Cuomo Lashes Out at Critics As Outcry Over Nursing Homes Grows
"It's criticism of new york state coronavirus response. That's irritated governor cuomo to the point of lashing out specifically criticism of how the governor's office has been counting the deaths of cove patients in nursing homes. So i asked jimmy veal kind to take me back in. Explain how this data error could lead the governor to reveal a less savory side of his personality a side of himself. he's managed to keep under wraps at least for the last few months it turns out this data error. It's tangled up in some policy decisions. The cuomo administration made about nursing homes way back at the beginning of the pandemic. You have to start in the first week of march where there were lots of unknowns. Far more was was not known them was known and governor cuomo had had just sort of his did over a slow glide shutdown of the state finally came to pass on on march twenty. It took him a while to make the decision. There is a week of sort of incremental closures. Different people debated whether or not he should have acted faster. But that's sort of was was decision point number one decision point number two was concerned about hospital capacity in certain that the fires it already spread pretty widely. More people are getting affected in governor. Cuomo talks time and time again about images that he saw from italy where hospitals were overrun where patients were outside on gurneys or stuffed into hallways and people were essentially being turned away and he said so often that that was his biggest fear so in that environment hospital. Executive talked to the governor's team in said we've traveled. We have patients who no longer need to be. Hospital is but they're sitting in our beds because we have no place the discharge them the normally would get discharged homes either. I kind of probably or for a long-term residents but the nursing homes were saying we're really scared. We don't want these covy positive patients and so you have this tension between nursing homes and hospitals and what new york state did was it. It basically listened to the concerns of hospitals so march twenty fifth the state health department issued a directive which said that a nursing home could not refuse to admit a patient which it would otherwise be able to care for solely on the basis of being positive for covid nineteen a nursing. Home operator said this was effectively in order to take these patients in some of immediately objected. They immediately said we're concerned. This is going to exacerbate the spread of covid nineteen facilities but the order stood. Was there evidence that it did exacerbate the spread in their facilities. Well this is where it gets tricky. We know that thousands of patients were transferred from hospital into nursing homes around the state retreat march twenty fifth and may ten when this health department directive was re modified rescinded revert. You can you can take your so. The question is did. The corona virus come to nursing homes the result of this in july. The state health department put out a report which looked at the data and it looked at the dates of death. The dates of first positive cases in nursing homes around the state. It's inclusion was that in most nursing homes. The first introduction of corona virus happens before any of these patients were transferred before the directive was issued on march twenty fifth. It was staffers bringing it in. They lead that. It was safran because the correlation because the infection rates in nursing homes correlated with the surrounding community right. Obviously a nursing. Home doesn't exist. In a bubble people work there. You know somewhere else to live. And the health department said this was actually the factor even though nursing home operators said from the beginning. Hey this order. It's not helping. It's only hurting and to this day. There are operators to say that they believe it contributed to the spread. If not in some instances was the primary ause of the spread. It's unclear even now whether this policy forcing nursing homes to take in covid positive patients affected newark's total death toll that's because of a pretty grim calculus. It's possible that additional deaths in nursing homes were actually offset because freeing hospital beds allowed more coronavirus patients to be treated what we do know now. At least is that cova deaths in nursing homes. Were not being tallied correctly. That's because of a patient became so sick. They were transferred back to a hospital. That death was counted as a hospital. Death making it nearly impossible to understand. Just how much. The virus was ravaging long term care facilities.
Georgia passes 800,000 confirmed coronavirus cases, cases are trending down
"Georgia reached another milestone now topping 800,000 cases. And George is now at 8959 and the number of Georgians who have died is now more than 14,500 cases are trending down in our state and That seems to be the case across the country. In fact, data from Johns Hopkins University shows the U. S. Is seeing a 29% decline in new cases compared to this time last week. That's the steepest one week declined the U. S has seen during this pandemic. WSB Health reporter Sabrina Cubits says It's unclear exactly how much of the decline may be due to the winter weather that was across much of the country, forcing testing sites too close. A
Interview With Bradley Kam
"We have a returning gas brian. Cameo from unstoppable domains and brad. Thanks for joining great. Thanks for Awesome awesome. so we've had you on before for those that maybe missed it. You can go to the reimagine twenty twenty youtube channel Up reimagined twenty two brought cameron and it will populate they're interesting story good stuff there You know for free that. Take a peek out. That i'm having back again. So hopefully we can shed some new light and get some updates in and see what's going on but bradey know what i noticed from. The last discussion is With quite get your journey like into blockchain I've done countless interviews now over the last four months and it'd be It's interesting you know. Love to hear your side and you found out in the rational and how you got into blockchain shore. So i i heard about it from the wired article in two thousand and eleven the rise and fall bitcoin which a lot of people probably heard him read and i remember thinking. Oh this is cool. And that i remember tossing the magazine aside and then nothing about it again. For a couple of years i moved out to san francisco in end of two thousand twelve december. Two thousand twelve to work on marketing tech startup. Six years working on that. But when i moved to san francisco. I moved into this hacker. House called twenty mission Right in the center of the mission district is crazy place a day. After i got there they were shooting horror. Fill there Just to give you kind of an idea of like what the building looks like They didn't need to change the scenery. It was ready to go for the film So there was like a clown getting murdered or something like that right outside my right outside. My door They eventually built it up a little bit. Got a little bit nicer but it was basically. I started by a early bitcoin supporter and essentially everybody. There was some sort of Some sort of a bitcoin enthusiast. The second bitcoin exchange was launched in the basement of the building Trade ill second. Bitcoin exchange in the us. bunch of early meet ups were in the building. The talk was giving talks in or courtyard before theorem. Live was basically everybody that i met when i moved to. San francisco was crypto person. Maybe three weeks. After i got there read the white paper You know maybe rented another couple of times just that first week thought it was one of the most amazing things i've ever heard was a little skeptical about whether or not this could actually work implementation. Wise i'm not ankle so i of needed to trust might eleborate friends. Essentially that this was like real from a tech perspective. They convinced me that it was and reading about it and think about it. Ever since i was more seven years ago. So how is living about pat. I don t twenty mission. It's not there anymore. I don't think right though. There is a lot of phases so a lot of a lot of those early folks in a lotta. Those early crypto folks are have since moved on But it was it was. It was pretty wild in the back in the day. I mean they were doing doing five hundred person. Y- parties with multiple. Dj's going until six am and stuff like that A lot of meet ups. It was amazing. I met so many. Jimmy's metallic was so he's to my. Cto is what was in a hacker house. I don't think he was. I think he might have been twenty mission as well but there was another one. A nearby and metallic was pitching a theory at that time Which kind of blew. Everybody's mind when he was trying to sell tokens and obviously my cto. Now wish he would have awesome. Yeah yes i didn't actually. I didn't get to talk to patel. Bear but it i did a. I was taking this class collection. You in south bay. And i think twenty fifteen and batali gave a talk Talking about a theory. And what. I heard it. It sounded like the most convoluted confusing thing ever. Everybody was like why. What's gas wise there. Gas is that different than ease. The token like it was just so confusing hours. Like is this really. Is this really going to work. It just seems so So bazaars i i didn't i didn't immediately get it. I don't think i'm probably took me another year. After the thing was was live when i started seeing some apps and then finally once i could see apps i was like okay now i get it now. This is a decentralized platform for apps

"I want to invite people into that conversation. I think it's really important for us. So rule number one for me as intra-party or inter coalition debate. We need to model tolerance. Something that we've talked about before. Which is i think it is. Okay for somebody to have of you. Were there more uncomfortable than i am. And i'm probably more uncomfortable than other people on the left On this but like the guy a range of ideas about how do we treat group classification. Because i don't think it's an easy question right. I don't think it's an easy question to decide. Hey we're gonna we're gonna do things to remedy this on justice for this group and we're going to give that coop special treatment. I don't think it's an easy question about where to draw the line between that group and others. I certainly a very strong opinions about doing that. Over certain historical injustices like slavery. And this is. This is largely with the supreme court. Said you know it says that if you have a compelling state interest which for instance like rubbing the justice of slavery is as compelling as interest as you can have you can give special treatment to groups based on race alien alien agenda and national origin. If you can't find a less restrictive way to do it and that's kind of where we've been right. But i just ruled over one is like let's be. Let's be tolerant of this debate for people who are doing good faith and then to is. Examine your assumptions on us in. Engaged the debate for real like And i think you know on our podcast trying to do this right which is to when my brother says. Here's the experience of asian americans in. Here's what i'm worried about. My son i don't dismiss that i. I hope that people listen to that and said don't want like they weren't defending a position. Like i was legitimate. Listening to my brother who i know is not just making this up to try to make an argument. It's something he's legitimately worried about. And i hope that's how people move forward in this debate which is to say. Don't dig in. You know if if somebody is giving you good reason to believe that they're doing this in good faith. Examine your options alongside of them. Maybe they'll move. Maybe you'll move to and maybe that's what this whole project is about. We always say how important it is to personalize things and it is but the other side of that coin. Is that when someone offers you their personal experience. You don't attack their personal experience like that that is going to be very counterproductive. You acknowledge it you take into consideration and then maybe you share yours or you give them another way to potentially think about it. But will you don't do is say. Will you forming that opinion based on personal experience of yours. That's not okay. you're not woke. you're racist i. That's not going to get anybody anywhere right. Yeah i think people on the left knee and understand that. Like if you believe for instance in equity as like somebody like even candy beliefs right he. He has his quote that the only remedy for past discrimination is present discrimination. I want people to understand that. Just because you believe that doesn't make that something that the people you need to move are going to believe overnight. That is a hard thing to convince a lot of people of and i think obama's really good on this. Which is like you have to do the work. If that's what you truly believe getting somebody to believe that that if you're using kennedy's framework that they are then going to be subject to present discrimination requires that work that we talk about the idea that it may not be your fault but it's responsibility and just how much work it takes to get people to buy into. That is not something. That's just going to happen overnight. It's going to take a a larger civic reawakening in this country for grabbing or don't have organization for you this week we just figured we haven't mentioned the t shirt and a while and honestly i actually put it on it kind of made it up to the top of the pile last night in my in my drawer and put it on and i said to my wife this is. This is not something. I'm just making up now. I said you know this is actually a really good t shirt so you can start conversations like the one that we just had and you can start him with.

"Parking garage. During the inauguration into this pretty extensively they did have to sleep on our floor of garage it because biden order them to it just seems like a screw up within the national guard itself and the capitol police who seem to miscommunicate something about them like these troops sleeping in the senate offices etc. But it's not something by norger or knew about i at the capitol police when on record saying that they don't think there were any members of congress who let alone ordered it who were even aware that it was happening And then let me say like look if somebody made national guard troops sleep on the floor and the garage like yeah. That was on cool. And you know unthinking and whatever. I promise that those troops have slept on frigging floor before like i mean it's and they were probably irritated about it but they weren't like. Oh my god i can't like much time you spend in the army just waiting for things and you just lay on a like. I've slept on a lot of floors indoors and outdoors. I ain't saying like it's no big deal that that happened. I'm just saying like the scandal of the century like we sent people to war without armor like can we. Can we get some frigging perspective on this place. There's a lot of these damn trying to mention are part of a wider narrative. So i'm trying not to mention one offs the wider narrative here and it was combined with this meam that the troops were turning our back on biden issues. Going through which. I'll talk about as i didn't even see that's chore ship and it turns out to be. Yeah they they turn their back as part of you securing securing it. Yeah it's like. I don't even have to tell me i haven't even seen the me can instantly tell you that if i had been if i were still in the garden and i were mobilized and sent there i would be under no illusions that i would be watching the inauguration. I would understand that. I would be in three sixty security facing out. You don't even have. I don't know anything about this. And i can already tell you. That's what yeah. The wider narrative is that the troops hate biden now. Last time i checked it was a military times during the election that had biden winning majority of soldiers right. I first time in many many years that the democrat was projected to actually win the majority of active duty votes from soldiers. Which i may have spent on the pod before but i wanna point at the military doesn't lean conservative because it's the military. The military leans conservative. Because if you show me any workplace in the united states where it is disproportionately drawn from the midwest and the south and four out of five people who work there are men than it's going to be disproportionately conservative. The fact that the military voted more for biden in for trump means that a whole lot of people turned against their ancestral republican roots and voted opposite of their parents and their brothers and their sisters is what happened right. And i think this is the way to attack this kind of stuff which is could situate these claims within larger trends because almost always the related to a larger trend or larger storyline that the that whatever forces lurking in the background are trying to tie together a narrative and so their choice to attack that narrative one is is in the concrete sense of what the exact claim is and then the other is to get the larger truth that they're trying to tell think it's important to go both ways and you know it's it's it's like going to the gym every couple every couple of weeks or every week. It's important for us to keep going back to these build of like the strength and muscle memory to take these kinds of things on and then over time you'll be adapted nearby. All right yeah. I know that specific claim. And i know the larger thing you're trying to say i can operate on both levels. Good point was exonerated during. So there's some bad faith stuff and some misinformation. And then. I want to pivot to every week or so. I wanna i wanna get to some of the good faith arguments that are out there and so there are people some of which we had on this podcast. I think mike murphy is an example of one of them who are people who who were part of our coalition that elected biden. Who are critiquing. Biden's moved from What what we call equality to what we call equity and there. There's a sizable enough group. I think both within our coalition certainly in our country who are uncomfortable with using a group identity too much to dictate policy in giving people what they view as special privileges within government based on identity. And i think the distinction here the way that the critique is going is that equality as it was understood is equality of opportunity which i think most of these critic support and then they're viewing equity as equality of outcome Which they do not support. And there's a big debate. Raging here like andrew sullivan. Pretty notable anti-trumpers are starting to take on biden over this. How do we handle this. This is like a big intro. Intra coalition There's a definite outside coalition fight from people who some some of whom are not well intentioned but there's definitely an intra coalition fight raging about this or at least starting. How do we handle is what i like about. This is that it is reminiscent of what the larger debate in this country. Used to be like this used to be left right debate and a good indication of how much the coalition is expanded is. This is now a debate happening within the coalition right. So that's that's a good sign also is pretty good demonstration of how extreme those outside the coalition actually are at this point but to me. I don't make a distinction really between and equality. Because i don't and i know this is how they characterize it but i don't think of it as a difference between equality of opportunity and equality of outcome because to me. That's not the debate. We're having like when when you're trying to rectify or or create some justice around past injustices which is basically like affirmative action. Like when you're trying to do some version of affirmative action when it comes to actual resources like where the covid vaccine is gonna go where You know investment money and communities is gonna go like. Yeah that's equity and not a quality but it's in order to have a shot at equality of opportunity right and this makes me think of is. I can remember many times in missouri politics. Having people say to me about you know parts of saint louis or parts of kansas city and this is not just conservatives. This is democrats as well who would say. Well you know what's really needed is the black community. It's leaders really need to step up and that used to just really irritate me and it also was a pretty big giveaway. A tell that you hadn't spent much time in the black community because there's no shortage of leaders stepping up what there is a shortage of is money is a shortage of resources and investment. And so you can have all the rules you want about it being equal opportunity for folks. You have other laws you want. But the fact is like if there's no money in your community and if there's a lack of tax base in order to put a really quality education on the table for somebody when the if that's not a quality of outcome that's a lack of equality of opportunity and at the end of the day like you can have leaders community. Step up all you want but without money behind it. There's nothing they can do. Yeah i think this operates on two levels right so a lot of the folks making these claims point. One they make is that they're not allowed to even have this conversation. That's what that's what they say. Now i want to acknowledge that. I've been in in some rooms where that's true like where people get shut down. There's only one point of view does a certain version of the left where that has been true in the past new majority fifty four. Certainly not that we've had on. My brother made this argument before about not wanting to be treated in a group but wanting to be treated as individual Mike murphy certainly made that claim were now bringing up. Andrew sullivan's argument. This is something that we were not afraid of this debate number one..

"Was basically that a bunch of anarchists in portland had like a really bad protests protests on the west coast can violent turn riders burning american flags. They burned joe biden flag. They smashed windows and vandalized ice building. You know we're going to. We got a lot of feedback that people want us to talk about. What is it cetera. So we will make sure that in future podcasts. We go through that. But i'll say this just on this claim. This group of anarchists set biden opposes. They had signs at would affect point to that. Were anti biden and this was this has been a protest an a in many ways a violent demonstration. That's been going on since way before a riot. What it is i mean. That's i don't wanna. I don't wanna walk into that criticism by the right that we call violent protests one side because this is neither right nor left anyway. But it's a riot going on during the trump administration continuing into the biden administration. Another element of the of the stuff. That's going on in portland. That i think is important to point out to people when they bring it up is not only were they saying that They wanted revenge. They didn't and they wanted prevent. They also attacked the democratic party headquarters. So it's okay. That is what i would say to people like. You know. we don't actually have to every enemy of the country every every person who acts out against the country. We don't actually have to decide whether they're on the right or the left like some people can just be enemies like the insurrectionists yes they were incited by the right but what we would prefer. Is that everybody in politics them as an enemy of this country as domestic terrorists. And somebody who you know burns down or down party headquarters and wants revenge and wednesday anarchy like that's not on the right or the left like enemy of the united states. I've said this all year. You know this is. This claim that people on the left have the double standard on this. I'm sure there are people on the left to have that. But i can only say that biden is not one of them by the way but i'm against people burning down buildings attacking innocent people and attacking innocent people businesses. No matter what your causes just against it and this is like an example where. There's not even a strong connection to biden in any way in quite the opposite and even after was Biden has been pretty consistent and condemning violence And certainly doesn't instigate it. There's this other claim that gas prices are going up. Part of a larger narrative related to certain policy areas so like cancelled keystone excel pipeline. Stuff like that now to be fair like there is a version of gas prices could go up if biden does certain things like there are certain there's consequences of wanting to drill less or by move to more energy independence etc. That stuff doesn't play out in a couple of days. And there are claiming that the gas prices were going to fifty cents per gallon. Were they actually went up two cents per gallon in that period of time. So i think that's like an easy one to dismiss but like keep your eye on the larger debate about fossil fuels. Because you know we should be honest as a consequence of moving away from fossil fuels. They're going to be jobs lost. They're gonna you know keystone excel for example where there are a lot of jobs. Some of them were temporary somewhere more permanent that are going to be lost if we stopped drilling there and like we should just be honest about that. I would point to the fact that at the end of this administration or during the midterm elections. Just say when somebody saying jobs are being lost et cetera. Just be like okay. Wait. let's wait till the next election. And then we can assess biden's record of jobs or not and see what his policies have driven like has created more jobs from things that he's done or not we gauge this week to week. You now what you don't want to do. A warning to liberals at there is. Because i i see a lot of liberals who think that there's something to celebrate about when jobs and oil and gas are lost her when jobs in coal are lost. No and it's not as. I think we should acknowledge it's not as simple as like. Oh they'll be retrained like look. It's it's not anywhere near the numbers of jobs that the like this post and the other misinformation is claiming. It's like fifty jobs but that's fifty people who are gonna lose their jobs. And i think that you have credibility with somebody when you acknowledge like that's a problem. It's not so great of a problem in so great a number that the the larger reasons for for doing s for trying to move towards clean energy and that sort of thing shouldn't be gone after and we should absolutely go to work to make sure that people who are displaced from those kind of jobs that we we moved them into other opportunities. But like don't be sensitive about it. Yeah it'd be a jerk. Don't don't be like oh that's fine. We don't need those jobs like those are humans and you should remember that. Yeah i think there's like at very natural human tendency to see like ben shapiro. Somebody weaponising staff in bad faith. And then you wanna be like. No jobs aren't being lost. But like when you cancel keystone excel pipeline. There are people working on that that i was working on the next thing. You can't teach the code and twenty four hours. You know like the thing that we just need to be honest about. I'm the couple of other quick things here. There's this meam out there that everybody's i'm sure has had to deal with in some form or another about biden. Having to make national guard troops sleep on the floor.

"Quarantine corner. Look i'm not going to gloat about the outcome of the afc championship. Because you know. I was you three years ago and i know what it feels like. Have your team comes so close and then those and you know. I'm excited for the bills. But anyway i'm not going to gloat about it instead. I'm just going to talk about the experience of actually went to that game and it felt very twenty nineteen ish you know now. We were wearing masks. Andy was socially distanced than they. They only you know. let twenty percent. Yeah people let's positive for a second just so listeners. Know like you are among the most careful people. I know when it comes to cove it and so like this wasn't like a small decision for you like you went about it in a safe way and it was outside. Want to point that out. Because i don't want people think like you're just like hanging out and stadiums all time. Yeah no no. I appreciate it and also it was something that so my brother had brought up the idea of going to me and i was like kind of on the fence. And then a couple of days later There's an article in the kansas city star. About the fact that the chiefs had successfully gone the entire season without a single transmission of covid while having twenty percent fans the entire time because of their protocols. And i was like all right. I'm gonna do this. I'm sold and so i went and we messed up. It was me my brother buddy from college. And then my buddy brian who i run vendors smeeting project with and brian is like. He's like this champion tailgater. He's always been a tailgate guy and of course he hasn't been able to do it on time and so the four of us went. And we're like 'cause this is kansas city so we're crazy so they're allowing tailgating as well so but it's all distanced and so we went and we messed up and we said let's go ahead and set up a grill and we did we like eight food in a parking lot for five hours in the cold and he set up his tv and we watch the nfc championship game and and we played bags. You know it was like a little bit like real life and then we went into the stadium and like its kansas city. So cheese fans can get loud even when there's five of them and it was incredible man get to watch the trophy presentation. I ate some nachos you know other than wearing a mask and people going up and down the aisle and like you know getting mad at anybody who wasn't wearing their mask which was great. It felt a lot like twenty nineteen and it made me just excited about the fact that so much progress is being made on vaccines and that there's sort of a light at the end of the tunnel now and it. Just oh man. It felt really good. Also we are going to the super bowl again so that was a bit of a cherry on top. Yeah well congratulations ed. If we're gonna lose rather lose decisively because the bills have had such tragic very strange in disappointing losses like the music city miracle on the last kick off the scott norwood wide wide right like i don't talk about this publicly but i watch very little of actual bills games because i care so much so actually once you scored the first touchdown you and i had the same reaction with with opposite valence which is pretty much newer. We're going to lose that game pretty early in the second quarter just because we couldn't stop you guys in balan clearly seemed off and so i did not watch the second half of the game. I i'm staying in an airstream which is my real quarantine corner update at moved into this weekend. It's this really cool. Air shamanic view. Follow me on instagram. I put a lot of content on it. It's just a beautifully done airstream by the ocean. And so i just kinda came back to my airstream kinda chilled out knowing that the the bills had lost. I didn't even check the scores the next morning because i just knew what went down down our hope. I don't know if it's any consolation. But now the chiefs get to go to the super bowl and avenge the bills by beating. Tom brady this week and misinformation. It's kind of an exciting week for this topic just because we are in charge so it feels a little bit less desperate and dark but we have a new structure. I think of the misinformation economy same after same tactics etc but now that the vitamin underway. The misinformation is now trickling out or flooding out as a way to de-legitimize him from day one and build a narrative that the world is is kind of going to hell in biden's administration and it's gotten almost comically so like he's been president for now a week as we record this podcast and there are things flying over the internet saying that basically the country has gone to hell in a couple of days and there is one facebook post that i was just looking at from politifact where they kind of fact check this facebook post to ten different things that have now gone to hell a in one week chief has taken over. Gas prices are up biden. Made troops sleep on the floor of a parking garage losing jobs. He wants to surrender iran. And i just want to prepare. Listen for this and we wanted to kick off the biden era saying that this is going to be a mainstay for you and i just wanted to open up the discussion. S like how you handle these kinds of claims Do you have any idea jason. Were i think one thing that is at least good is that we had to work a little harder to figure out exactly what the viral misinformation is because president trump doesn't have a twitter account anymore so that i i hope is is a reason for some optimism but yeah i mean i think that the way to handle it is to focus on the larger policy areas but i do think he got to defend it so and this by the way was a private citizens facebook account and it just went viral. Because there's such a thirst out there for bullshit like this. That feeds that emotional. Need to believe that your vote for trump was the correct one and so should we just roll through these a few of these. So there's this disclaim that mtpa quote unquote taking over..

"Entire party seems to have shifted a lot on a lot of issues over time so i think in just like for decent for for reasons of intellectual integrity. It's important to take into account new evidence as it comes in. I think the martin part of new evidence that's going to sway mansion cinema to the centers. Any is going to be attempted passage of bills that they care about better being stymied by republicans over and over again so i think listeners would be prepared to see a lot of good legislation. Die before we can change the filibuster. But there's this thing called reconciliation. Which i don't truly understand but from what i understand if there are certain things that are strictly budgetary so like expanding funding for covid or for healthcare cetera. Those things can pass just on on a fifty one vote margin where things that are not strictly budgetary like voting rights. Act or adding dc as a state would not pass muster on that. I don't completely understand. The distinction is cases. But that seems at least reason for hope there are some things that will still get done but there are just so many really important thing. I mean i just go back to president obama at john. Lewis's funeral you wanna job. That's on by revitalizing the law that he was willing to die for john wouldn't want us to stop. They're trying to get back to where we already were. Once we pass the john lewis voting rights that we should keep much he talked about the voting rights act and all the things that needed to be done and he said and if that means getting rid of the filibuster than that's we'll have to do and he was completely right and none of that has changed honestly at this point. If you are opposed to getting rid of the filibuster you are functionally opposed to the john. Lewis voting rights act and that's totally unacceptable as a member of this party.

And i just wrote an entire chapter about afghanistan and like it was sort of like i was half in afghanistan and half here for about a week and it just made for a little bit of a difficult week from a mental health perspective. It wasn't you know tragic. I wasn't careening is just uncomfortable. And so i talked to somebody so you don't need some big event or some big reason you just all you need is to say you know what i think. I might feel better if i did this. And i'll mention the obvious which is in this era of covid. It's great to use a service where you don't have to necessarily show to an office and i know a lot of majority fifty four listeners. Come from rural areas. You know the nearest office might not be that close and so they have licensed professional counselors specialize in.

"Private prison story real quick that i can't remember if i've told on the spot before but it's just to me. It's like the ultimate like taking the private prison idea and like the privatization everything to its logical conclusion. And how stupid. It is so first of all. I like you said the idea that private prisons are even exist is horrendous. But here's where it ends up going. I remember when i was in the state legislature. There were always in there still are always attempts to do carve outs and carve outs are just. Hey you know there's this law there's this rule that exists we're going to go ahead and exempt this industry from this and this is done constantly and it's almost always pushed by republicans not exclusively but almost always like hey to be pro business. We're going to say that you know the best known. Examples gun manufacturers. They're carved out from regular civilized ability. Like that sort of thing so the other piece of context you have to know is that this is my first term in the house which meant it was a republican majority but it was the closest republican majority that i ever saw so it was eighty nine to seventy four so every once in a while we we had a chance to win and amendment but we almost never one on a bill and this is one where we actually just barely won because what it was the dude got up and his bill was to exempt private prison companies from the state's law. That said that you had to report an escape within twenty four hours. This was a real thing that was proposed. a lot of people voted for unbelievable in his his rationale. Was you know they don't have as much staff. They don't have as much resources. It's difficult for them to do this as quickly as regular prisons and of course a bunch of us were getting up. And we're like well then. Maybe they shouldn't be in the fucking prison business so that's where this stuff eventually goes right is like you know i mean it's not fair to make the private prisons report escapes of prisoners as fast as regular prisons. Yeah anyway that got defeated a rare defeat bill on the floor. I mean just borough thank god you know if you've ever spent a lotta time in certain pockets of america. You know deep south being one area where this is a particular problem where spent about six years of my life. You have a combination of elected judges in private prisons and just a shitload racism and so what you wind up. Having his a an incentive in some cases for the judges to send people as many people as possible prison there's documented cases of quotas which is unbelievable. Where because you have to meet certain job requirements in your town. You wanna send as many people as possible to prison because it's an industry. It's terrible i it needs to be stopped at. I'm glad to buy administration took the step. It's a good example for people listening when you're having these arguments with family members or whoever about this idea of regulating industry like why does it make sense to regulate certain industries and you go back to the idea of there are certain functions that work better when the government either does it or has a somewhat heavy hand because the prophet motivation is so strong and i would analogize this to win like orthopedic surgeons also own. Mri testing centers right. It's like yeah. Obviously they're incentivized to order all sorts of is that maybe are needed. Maybe are not but every time they send you over for a test. It's money in their pocket coming from your insurance company which obviously raises the cost of everything. Well that's a bit of market failure just like having elected judges and private. Prisons is a market failure. As a kid. I used to argue in my neighborhood that my dentist was doing that when it came to wisdom teeth removal and i just never got my wisdom. Teeth removed And i never had a consequence for it now listeners. Don't follow my example. I have never google this. I have no idea whether it's evidence-based but that's the kind of skeptical lunatic. That i was as a kid will Gonna give some credence to to your skepticism. Which is i remember. When i first went to college and i moved to dc. I lived in an apartment building that had a dentist on the first floor. And then i had a dentist back home. A real young guy. And this dennis back home had i had never had a cavity and all of a sudden this dentist had back home at the time has drilled on like three or four teeth or he drilled onto and he was like the next to next four. Cavities and you will get the next to next time. I was like all right then. I go out and pretty soon. The army says hey. You need a dental exam and i was like okay. This is dennis downstairs. So i go downstairs and the dennis downstairs was like an older guy. Who'd been in practice a long time and he doesn't dental exam and he's like you're all good and i was like you didn't find the two cavities. He's like what two cabinet and tell them the story and he says you dennis back home. Is he like in his thirties. Young guy twenties or thirties like yeah and he goes. Yeah that's normal. He's building this practice. You probably didn't need my god. Well listeners if our producer. Eddie let us keep this whole dentist thing in Send us a voicemail. If you're a dentist because i'm sure it just by of statistics. We have some dentists out there and defend yourself. Let me just say. I go to dr jared williamson city. And he's fantastic. I'm i'm not an anti just apparently had a bad dentist point rounding out the news of the week monday evening mcconnell relented and agreed to a power sharing agreement with the democrats which basically means we have the majority. It's a little complicated and as you've probably heard a before neither of us really truly understand how the senate works. I'm not sure if the senate understands how the senate works up one. Notable part of this is that busy mcconnell wanted the democrats to agree not to remove the filibuster in exchange for basic giving us our democratic majority that the voters donna gave us like. It's not even just a majority. I think we have tens of millions of more votes in these elections than they do but never mind that they wanted a promise that we wouldn't get rid of the filibuster weeding give it to them but notably senators mansion in cinema. Both made statements reiterating that they would preserve the filibuster And mansion said in this two year term of the senate which i found interesting But there were other notable democrats who made statements that i found reassuring one was jon tester. Who's generally skeptical of removing the filibuster. And he said. I feel pretty damn strongly meaning about keeping the filibuster but also tell you this. I'm here to get things done. If all that happens is filibuster after filibuster role black after rohbock than my opinion may change out. You have to say kudos to you. Jon tester. I thought that was really good. Statement in puts republicans on notice on butcher. This concern us jason We still have two democratic senators. Who won't remove the filibuster which means a lot of the things we care about. A lot of things you in tabs all talked about a couple of weeks ago are gonna be really hard to accomplish with a filibuster place. Yeah it concerns me. And it's for the very reason that you've brought up. And that we've been talking about the last few episodes. Which is there's really important shift that has to get done like it's gonna affect people's lives. Everything from the voting rights act to commonsense gun legislation. I mean there's so many things that you know this is this is the opportunity to do it. And the second reason is a political one. Which is we have to deliver some things. And if we don't deliver some things there will be political consequence for that and yeah like they're wrong like i. I don't really know. Joe manchin very well. I know senator cinema decently well. They're wrong like and i would tell her that i was just wrong and we have to do it. I i haven't given up hope. Because i do think that if there ever was a time in our politics that allows people to change their minds. It's the current environment that we're in right now. I think we we just came from a situation where the president changes mind like between one tweets of the next on the same day or just forgot what previous positions were in. Certainly didn't pay the kind of political costs. We.

"I'm jason candor and this is majority fifty four the podcast that helps americans who voted for progress convince those who didn't to join majority robbie what's been going on this week. Well excited to report on biden first week in the united states and he's really hit the ground running to use over use cliche. He's been really focused on covert which is really refreshing. And they've been putting out continuous information about how they're shifting to a more aggressive response to covid big this week r biden had originally said he wants to get to a hundred million vaccinated in his first hundred days. And he's now up that to at least one point five million vaccinations days the goal now And that's what they're shooting for. He's also announced a few other measures. mask mandate on federal property abandoned certain countries that are very high. Risk covid wise South africa being one of them and just in general It seems like the government is consolidating. A decision making Just taking this very seriously you get the sense that this is an administration that's waking up every single day with with cova as the top priority. Yeah it really. It feels like someone's in charge. And you know what i've been thinking about. Ever since inauguration is i remember learning in the army that there's a special feeling that goes with being led. Well like whether it's your boss at work your your mom or your dad like whoever it is like you know when you're lead well and i remember in the army like when i was serving under a good leader which often but not always there is a reassurance and comfort and excitement about being led. Well you know. One of the biggest criticism of the previous administration that the buck never seemed to stop in the oval office. And you get the sense that biden's waking up every single day just saying this is my responsibility. There are no tweets attacking state officials. You know they're they're on international fights over who started the virus which is now a over a year now since the virus was first discovered. You know it's such a totally pointless exercise when you're in the middle of it. All those things are gone and what we're getting now our press releases so social media updates etc just about okay. We're securing this amount of vaccine Working with states to try to get it out as fast as possible. We're trying to coordinate. The response were updating health guidance. Like it just feels right. I agree with you. It reminds me of what prisoner. Obama said in the toward the end of the campaign when he was campaigning for the ticket and he said you know you won't have to wake up every day and think about joe and kamla like they'll just be doing their jobs. And that's what's happening. And it is like i said steeply reassuring that tweet yesterday from chief of staff. Ron claims out to me is an example of why this administration different is that he tweeted out as something like we've secured x. amount of additional vaccines. Now the hard part is just making sure that we're able to distribute it. And what. I found interesting. Which is shouldn't be about that tweet. Is that. It wasn't just a celebration. Look where awesome like now. If you don't deliver this it's on. You is more like now. We have to figure this out together. This idea that we have shared responsibility acknowledging that it's hard. Yeah you know just being like an now. it's going to get harder. That's leveling with people that's leadership. He asked speaking of leadership. we have some confirmations. We've got some swift confirmations of the secretary treasury state defense and intelligent san. It looks like an this is partially if not completely a result of the georgia elections things moving relatively smoothly to get people confirmed but there are decent amount of republicans voting for these nominees. Which shows that you know. All hope isn't lost. Biden has issued a a series of executive orders mostly on his first day but they've been trickling out ever since and just to give you know. This is partially to celebrate partially to listeners. But just to give you a sense of why elections matter. Here's some of these executive orders on and let me let me point out like these executive orders. This is stuff that even if we had not won the georgia senate races. This still would've happened. Yeah exactly so you know. Some of these are rejoining. The paris agreement for climate change ending the muslim ban requiring mask wearing on federal property coordinating a government wide cove response incorporating undocumented immigrants into census cancelling the keystone excel pipeline pulling funding from the border wall assisting veterans with debt. Reversing the changes under military abandoned ending reliance on a private Some of them jason. Like any of those standout. You know there's so much there stand out to you where you're like. Wow this is this is amazing. The one actually the jumped out was incorporating undocumented immigrants into the census because it's actually not that revolutionary idea. It's actually the way we usually do things and what it does is it says okay. We need to actually know how many people human beings live in an area to know what representation and to know like how much is needed to build highways there and for federal services of all kinds and i mean. Let's not pretend that these human beings don't exist really revolutionary idea like that and you know we had a big fight over how to do representation in missouri and unfortunately about initiative passed that it goes backwards on the sort of thing so it's a really big deal because it is just not that revolutionaries just going back to the way this is usually done but has an enormous impact totally agree one that i that i thought was interesting. Here was assisting veterans with their debt. Which is just the sense that you know. There's not one party here that has a monopoly on patriotism in. Obviously we spent past six months talking about how. Maybe there's one. Party bet thinks it has a monopoly on patriotism but it's the opposite and i think this is a good example of like we love to wave the flag sometimes but we don't think about the consequences of quote unquote defending our freedom. And so we send people off to fight wars like you like my brother and then when people get back like we don't do the greatest job of taking care of them and that needs to be a bipartisan effort. Will it's it's really meaningful. Actions were taken for veterans in the initial executive orders. Right and i. And i do think it just goes back to the work that the doctor biden did with michelle obama right for military families like. She's i've taken her untutored. You know taking her. On a tour of the nonprofit that i run. She's deeply knowledgeable about this stuff. And so it matters like i was saying throughout the campaign that it matters to have a military family as the first family and this is a good example of that. Yeah and other that that sticks out to me as this ending the reliance on private prisons which is related to attack happening at the border with. You know all do terrible things. We've done two separate families but also is something that even came up on podcast with my brother who is fairly libertarian but admitted that he is against private prisons because in his words. You know when you take away. Somebody's liberty that's government edits most powerful and most dangerous and we don't want to hand over that responsibility to the private sector and so i think that's a that was such a a needed step in honestly like i can't believe the federal government was ever in the business of of Prime.

"Fuck while the other problem. Okay so here's one of the reasons that a lot of these clubs especially old ones. Don't wanna do it. Especially with women. I mean with with people who are of different are non white or people who are non wasp Like if you're you know jewish or muslim or other religions. That's a different category altogether. Because like if you're a male member of those groups there should be no problem. A lot of these clubs are like we don't want to build a bathroom for women. We don't wanna build changing rooms for women. It's going to cost us a lot of money. But these people are paying like tens of thousands of years. Horsely fucking money so so. That's one of the things i think and i think otherwise. It just like they would be able to talk how they wanna talk. They don't want to be policed by other people should be policed fucking talking i agree. That's the subtext it's not like. Oh well we only want affiliate with a certain kind of person. It's like no you wanna keep being shitty and private and public exactly fucking picking your nose. Inflicting it on the course. Yup maybe doing both at once pretending the golf balls your balls. Yeah we know we know and it's getting yeah getting fucking drunken like i dunno fucking talking about you hate your wife. Yeah totally you. Don't want by the way you don't want any buzz kills around. That's what it is. But i just act so differently around women. I'm just not myself. Maybe yourself is a horrible person exactly and if you if all it takes is like a person who person from a group that you don't affiliate with to make you feel uncomfortable or make you feel like all the sudden like you can't be yourself like brian said get a new personality truly and also like i guarantee you all these people would say they're not sexist and it's of course it's but you don't want to be around women well also like let's be real like even before it was a consideration for women to even be members of these golf courses They were these golf courses racist. I this guy hall thompson. Which don't even get me started on that name who i feel like these other racist every. There's something about their name that is an object.

Hey, we'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who supported us this year with our patreon subscriptions and with one off PayPal contributions now as usual as this is the last show of the year. We are going to be going on Hiatus off for a couple of months at the beginning of next year to give us and all of you are break. So Martin, would you like to explain what's going to happen with our patreon while we're off? Yes, so the first thing that's going off. And is there will be a payment taken on January 1st or whatever, you know, the first week of January is and that will be the money that we use to pay for the team member production costs, but then we will pause patreon taking money for a boon to podcast until we return or if indeed we return that and because you know, we haven't had our career yet and decided if we're going to do this again, but we will be pausing the patrian whilst we're off the air great. So yes, if you're subscribed and you'll continue to support us then continue to be subscribed. We won't take your money without giving you podcasts. And in the meantime, Alan what have you been up to recently? Well just in time for the exhaust episode. I have removed the audio noise that was plaguing my system and also doubled my speed on my desktop PC. Wow. Is this the same fix for Bose? It was it was one fix that did both things. It turns out I use ethernet over power adapters tp-link devices because my office is like the complete opposite end of the house from the internet connection and to get it here. I didn't run ethernet. I just use ethernet over power and I've been using it for years and there's been this background like crackle for a while and I couldn't pinpoint what it was and I thought it was cables crossing over or something like that. And also the internet in this room is 50% of what it should be. I get paid for like hundred hundred and ten Meg or something that I get home forty eight fifty something like that. And when the kids are out one day, I unplugged loads of things and Shuffle things around and it turned out it was the ethernet over power device which has a through socket was plugged into a four-way thing and I moved it. So it's plugged directly in the wall. Magically the audio problem goes away and my internet is now twice as fast off. That's all I did was. The only thing that changed was me moving the ethernet over power socket to be plugged directly in the wall. Suddenly. Everything's faster and better. Wow, great. Well, I'm glad you got that down time for one recording. Sorry Joe Martin what we even up to I have been playing Hotshot racing with my friends on that their Internet. It's a good game. This is a driving game. I imagine it is. I think I may have mentioned it earlier in the year, but it's having a bit of a Revival at the moment. It's a low poly retro arcade style game racer available on Steam and you can play it under proton. And now now I'm not working for you know, the Christmas break. I was looking to have some fun so long I've started hosting some Linux game nights and this is the game. We're playing at the moment doing an excellent romp around the tracks and can people watch you playing even if they don't want to play they can wage. I've started a second YouTube channel just for playing games on Linux and it's all streamed there and everyone who's playing along with me has a voice in the room and it's a group effort. And in fact, some of the others are streaming as well. So you can even own overlay multiple angles of the game being played at the same time brilliant. And with that let's get on with the show you as it's the last show of the year. We thought we would have a big fight respective on all of the good news that happened in 2020. So let's begin back in episode one or the 24th of March Martin. What good news did you find? I was delighted by Alain running. The urban too long will paper World Cup and Hardy heroine being voted as the all-time favorite a bun to desktop wallpaper who would possibly have seen that result coming off but what transpired is I did a bit of archaeology and we dug up the original artwork for that and we were able to reproduce a 4K version which was included in the focal fossa. LTS release later in the year nice brilliant and speaking of that LTS release. We had more good news in a purple. Yes, indeed April was of course the release of the the focal fossa LTS release and you know, I think for Alan as much as for me, you know, this is a landmark for us off.

On, television if you if you do broadcast the kind of topic of conversation, everyone knows but which New York is going to go. All, it's easier to be studied here. We'll say Biden's ads have got better and better in Florida. And it's interesting that none of them have anything to do with corona virus anymore. Do you do see trumpets Oh. Yeah. Absolutely. I. Exit another feature. This race is just the the huge fundraising advantage with the Biden folks of. POURED INTO The risk of drawing another admonishment from me rich from my. Interest in anecdotes. To the guy at the bar say doesn't listen to TV AD. Doesn't pay any attention. No, but there is a disconnect I don't know how it will play out in the election proper. But there is a disconnect in there are many Biden ads on the radio and they're far more Biden ads than trump ads on TV and it's not just ads run by the Biden campaign. But there are a bunch of independent groups that are running Biden ads, independent pack and Republican votes against trump and so on. No the exact numbers but in my experience, it's been maybe three or four, two, one, five, nine, two, trump, pats. But The in person meetings and rallies and droops. The canvassing effort and even just lawn signs a wildly in trump's favor. in. My town but also in some of the neighboring towns. There are real trump, meet ups, you drive past them, and there's one hundred people that two hundred people. Whereas the Biden, meet up seem empty. Now that doesn't mean Biden, it's not going to win. But. It does I think reflect a slight difference in the way that the campaigns have approached this election. Partly because of a disparity in fundraising. But also how they have seen it from the START I read the Times the trump. Administration. The trump campaign. has facilitated the knocking. On millions millions one, hundred, million tours. New York Times said and Biden campaign has not. and. You see that even where I am in North Florida and the difference between this relentless Sarraj of ADS on TV compared to people knocking on the door and saying, how will you vote for Donald? Trump is very different way of approaching it. Yeah No. Absolutely if trump wins, that will be one of the major story lines in. Their calculation and it may be looked. You know they just don't have enough as much money as they'd like they can't match by on TV. But what they'll say is look it's Donald Trump? Everyone knows you know he's on TV all the time T-, TV, ads are swing people one way or the other just makes much more sense to invest in this really intense in personal get out the vote. Effort.

"The. Failure of trump to run. The same kind of campaign he ran for years ago like the Hunter Biden issue that has taken up a ton of press on the conservative. In the conservative media for weeks. There is within that a story that you can tell that is a populist. Story Right. Like you can go back to reports even from left wing sources about how Hunter Biden invested. Millions in the companies that built China's surveillance state that's being used to torture Muslims in its Western frontier you can talk about. You know. Biden favouring these trade deals and his family getting money from China. You can talk about One hundred by consulting with China's trying to is investing in South America which is you know one other new development today. So Biden sold out American jobs to China announced helping China violate the Monroe doctrine. You could have blended that into. A trumpian campaign message, the Hunter Biden mess instead it's come off as just a smear as like hundred Biden is a bad guy. Does drugs consorts with prostitutes and isn't it disgusting? and. Shouldn't Joe Biden have to talk about it? It's just like it's like they didn't know how to mess it to tell their own story of why you should elect trump. Right. You know The story is kind of slid into this thing of like Hunter Biden's disillusioned life rather than. The. Corruption. Of. The political class right that. Members the democratic political. Class. In the eighties and nineties made this turn toward international trade finance, etc.. and. Then they got rich and their constituents got left behind. That's the trump message and they just didn't make it like it's one that they've blown. It's actually. It's astonishing if you are a trump fan. I mean, it's like malpractice. Yeah. Will you read good piece Michael about how trump can't tell stories? He also just can't really explain anything. A major frustration of mine which I. Express repeatedly on this podcast? You Novakova Kennedy explain clearly that the good stuff and the policies they've gotten right but Charlie this all this all goes back to. Under girding all this is selfishness and a lack of discipline and trump thinks the neath, the waves that will be the biggest reason this an astonishing charge you're making this President Rich This is serious. He hasn't changed and it hurts him. We set the so many times but. Forget for a moment. What he should have said what he should have focused on how he should have campaigned. Donald Trump. Would likely have benefited at least for most of his presidency. Perhaps wouldn't have worked under a corona virus circumstances from hiding in his basement himself. If Donald Trump had just shut up. For three years, people would feel a lot better about him. They're already think he's good on the economy. Nothing seems to be able to shake that not even the pandemic, not even two hundred, thousand deaths, not even the enormous recession that. has occurred on his watch. But he is throughout. used his position and his time. To Annoy Traditional Republican voters or at least Republican curious. Voters. I have no issue whatsoever. Uh with the president telling the media that is biased or wrong. I, don't like the way. He does it from time to time but I'm less upset about it than most he hasn't done anything to impinge upon. My rights or anyone's Rights Issa. Speaker or journalist. But why on a Does. He spend his time on twitter going off to jobs, copper, accusing him of murder. and. Any hope that this would change in the last month last two months of the campaign. It's really gone away. He's not lazy. It's not A. Matter of work ethic he works pretty hard and yesterday he went back to the White House in the evening to preside over the swearing in of Amy conybeare early. Done three rallies three, one day seventeen. Seventy three year old man. He did three rallies in Florida. Each for an hour and off. His voice was noticeably horse. Today's springsteen of of campaign rallies and he's entertaining sometimes in a less than salubrious way sometimes in a genuinely musing way, he's funny. But the content is just so It's it's so inchoate. And it seems to be driven by what he's seen on television. What he feels that particular audience might want to hear. What he sends his is important. That day and You can't do that for three and a half years and then campaign on the same platform. Yeah. We've talked about this also repeatedly. It's not that any one of these controversies accusing Joe Scarborough murder. Hurt Him. It's just the steady accumulation of of all, all those little things clearly. This hurt him badly.

But let's go to our percentages because this election hasn't happened yet. No one quite knows what's going to happen and the D. where you now. Mean I was at twenty.

Isn't that basically what is nate? What's fivethirtyeight like thirteen percent or something something like that but I think it's pretty. I think pretty low and t you know..

"To it. to But it. But to to tell tell you truth, you truth, I don't I think don't much think much will change. will change. But But anyway, anyway, I I wanted wanted to ask to ask you you about about Joe Joe Biden Biden Yesterday. Yesterday. I I the the Early Early indication indication was was that he'd that put he'd put a lid a lid on on his campaign his campaign but but apparently apparently was was convinced convinced to do to something do something because, because, after after all, it all, is it only is only a a week week to go. to go. And And what what they did they did is they is drove they drove in 45 in 45 minutes minutes to Pennsylvania to Pennsylvania for for a a quick quick little little Ah, Ah, Photo Photo op op and and getting getting speech. speech. Do Do you think you think it's it's kind kind of odd of odd that that he's he's with with one one week week to go to go that that that's that's the best the best they can they can do do on that on that particular particular day yesterday? day yesterday? Well Well again, again, if it if was it something was something that was that unplanned, was unplanned, and and they hadn't they hadn't done done it it asleep asleep by by the books the books like like I mean, I mean, if you if look you look at the rest at the rest of his of weak his weak here, here, it's it's pretty pretty filled filled up up with stuff. with stuff. But But when when you you and and then frankly then frankly going going into into early early next next week, week, but but if if this this was was something something that was that was unplanned, unplanned, then then I think I think it was, it was, you know, an you know, an opportunity opportunity that that they took they took advantage advantage of of on some on some level, level, certainly certainly with president with president from from doing doing three three different different events, events, But But Biden Biden was was in in Pennsylvania Pennsylvania the night the night before, before, so so Sunday Sunday night. night. He was He was in Pennsylvania in Pennsylvania having having an event. an event. Trump Trump had his had his three events three events there yesterday. there yesterday. So So I I guess guess just just having having Biden Biden go back go back to Pennsylvania to Pennsylvania is no is big no big deal deal the next the next date over date over so so but but it would it seem would seem is, is, though there though there was was a little a bit little of bit pressure of pressure put put on on him him to do to do something something on on some some level level and you're and going you're going to see to see him him in in Georgia Georgia today. today. Right Right now, we now, we have have no announcement no announcement for what's for what's happening happening on Wednesday on Wednesday Thursday. Thursday. He's He's going going to be to in be in Florida Florida Friday Friday in in Iowa Iowa and and Wisconsin Wisconsin Saturday Saturday in Michigan. in Michigan. Nothing Nothing yet yet on on Sunday Sunday and then and on then Monday on Monday in in Ohio. Ohio. So when So when you look you look at his at his weak weak compared compared to President to President Trump's Trump's president president Trump, Trump, of course, of course, have those have those three three rallies rallies Yesterday. Yesterday. He'll be He'll in be Michigan, in Michigan, Wisconsin, Wisconsin, Nebraska Nebraska today today and and then in then Arizona in Arizona and Nevada and Nevada on Wednesday on Wednesday and and then nothing then nothing else. else. We've got We've nothing got nothing else else scheduled scheduled for President for President Trump Trump going going up to up Election to Election Day, Day, So So I'll I'll be interesting be interesting to see to see how how this this all all plays plays out, out, especially especially because because there seems there seems to be to plenty be plenty of availability. of availability.

"Son didn't have a job for a long time was sadly no longer in the military service. I won't get into that and he didn't. As, soon, as he became first president, Barista's not the best look not the best reputation in the world I hear they paid them one, hundred, eighty, three, thousand, a month. Listen to this. You can bring up a concise to sink. Message for what exactly he is alleging for the average voter who doesn't follow right wing media. They wouldn't know what the president was talking about Joe Biden essentially was unequivocal in his denials I've never made any money from any foreign sources bassist that everybody investigated that no-one said entity did was wrong and Ukraine, and then he asked the president about his own taxes. The president hasn't released his taxes if the president does all kinds of business overseas. So while the president wanted to be on offense on this, he ended up spending a lot of time on the debate stage explaining why he had not released his taxes versatile and cold. Under, underwrote it. I'M GONNA, release them as soon as we can I wanted to waning what his own business history was and explaining essentially why he has a number of questions to answer about his own foreign entanglements Sabrina where do you make of Joe Biden's campaign in its attempts shutdown that story so far? I think they've been largely successful. It was something that obviously come up toward the beginning of the campaign when people I became aware that Hunter Biden heads some business dealings overseas but I think what has really helped Joe Biden is first of all, it was not an issue in the Democratic primary in part because. The. Opponents in the Democratic primary. You'll remember when it came up in one of the democratic debates they all resoundingly said, this is a distraction. This is something. Republicans. Are Peddling to try and make another hillary emails scandal emerged and there's just no there there and that was important because it killed the issue very early on and it also, of course, is inextricably linked to the president's impeachment trial because the whole reason he was impeached by the House of Representatives was because he was trying to use the power of the presidency to investigate. Joe Biden and Hunter Biden. So I think that the vine campaign has tried to tie back and say listen we've already litigated this issue and even Senate Republicans have investigated this issue and they didn't find any smoking gun in their own investigation even if they're trying to claim there is some evidence of wrongdoing..

"His campaign that he's the responsible candidate and that he is not holding large gatherings because of the coronavirus pandemic and he doesn't think that he should be out there traveling to hot spots where cases are rising and I think his whole kind of message has been I'm listening to the scientists and the experts and they say we shouldn't be campaigning. The way we traditionally would be does that mean just hold? Very few events like he's been doing, is there a middle ground somewhere I? Think that's still an open question but I think the Biden campaign physics, it's a pretty good contrast for them that trump is having these large scale rallies where there's very little social distancing in plays a lot of people aren't wearing masks sometimes he's in places where local officials are preferred that. He not come because of the rising cases on the ground. The Biden campaign feels like this is a pretty good contrast for them. So I'm actually curious about that because totally saw this past weekend there was this footage of come Laras walking down the street Amazon polling place you had a megaphone and she was speaking to a bunch of people who are waiting.

"It, but. Not In time to avoid a pretty brutal double bogey on the third hole after two Pars. Hit very big block into someone's backyard. Which? Mistake I thought it was a five, because that's how it plays four people out there normally, but it was a part for this week so basically I was wrong about our score the entire day so tiny little scripts here and there the absolute highlight of today though. With see Kim. He is a treasure he. A little hot, let's just put it that way I mean. He's two under through fifteen right. Both Him Adam long are kind of on cruise control long just dialed in with his wedges. Everything is to ten feet. And see Wu is is definitely kind of scraping around and still under par sixteen toll water on the right. He hits into the hazard, so he drops hits it I think short of the green then onto the green. Mrs Like two footer for Bogey, so he makes double bogey. He's pissed, so he's back to even par hits very good approach into seventeen long par-three. It's about a twenty foot PUTT. It breaks six inches when he played a foot of break. He's not happy about it. He flicks off the Gulf whole grabs the ball after putting for par making par mind you putting in for par grabs enthroning the lake. Then, we go to eighteen. He overcooked his draw through the fairway left and into. The rough left, so he's got to go over the fairway over the water to the. Over the rocks and to the Green. Is Far to the right, so it's a hell of a shot. He grabs three would from the rough on a downslope. Fans that gets under a little bit POPs it up. It comes like ten feet short of the of the Rockwall, so he's in the water drops on the other side of the lake. Because that's the other side of the hazard, then hits just electric iron shot is six weeks gets up there of course makes the par light shoots even-par grabs. The ball throws it into the lake. basically see. We'll cameras my new favorite player. Runs a little hot. Has Justice sensual trajectory all of its shots? He he's definitely. Incredibly talented. But Fun to watch him. Just work through. Various little ups and downs in his career so. We are four over. We're GONNA. Need a hell of a day tomorrow to make the cut probably something like sixty, four sixty five, so. Nothing to do but go get some dinner. Get some sleep. Try.

Cut. I don't know. Cut Event, but I'm starting to light like I actually shower and like omit looks decent like like outlook, but right now I I haven't done that today, so I just have. No back, judge thing I actually saw like every like three weeks. My Dad's best friend will call me and catch up. We'll talk sports all that and his first thing he talked about was. Aaron judge again injury prone all that and it's just like. I actually yelled at him because they just he's. He's on twitter. For. They just announced he was taking BP and all that and he's fine I like he had a stiff neck. He's not injury-prone, gives of stiff neck and I don't think he's injury prone in general I think he's just. He just has a bad string of bad luck like getting hit in wrist doesn't make you injury prone man like breaking your wrist when a ninety five hits it. That doesn't make injury prone sure. He had the shoulder injury that one year through though, and he played decent, you know. He heated up in the playoffs and all that and You know obviously the rip. The thing wasn't great. But that's like the first major injury he's really had. That has like been like just a bad situation like he's just unlucky. Giancarlo Stanton is injury prone? Aaron Judge Not Injury. Prom I think he's just. Become like the mets where every time someone gets hurt or like this again this this season sucks. We're not the mets. We don't. Judge is going to be fine if he honestly if judge does get hurt again sheer, it's a bad it's. He's injury-prone. Share but right now I do not think he is like I think I'm with you. I think I don't think so again. Stiff neck in all the show he's playing. These I see visit can be deep, but if he heard again, that's. Another another series injury venue got it. Revisit it, but right now I'm not I'm not there to say I. Don't agree with a BS, so his time. He said he's alive tonight. That should be good to see. Paxton starting tonight, so they pretty much are decl. It's kind of obvious when he's the number two. So he'll pitch I. Think they had a day off? Show Saturday in DC. Number. Three's probably half at this point you number four is Montgomery and will. This is assuming it's not guys gone the mountain, so you have to assume he's not like he's meet some time to like. Get his shit going like he's not. Feeling any symptoms feels great, but they're try. They saw clint they saw what happened. knuckle missing. WHO's the other concussion guy? What am I missing in this? Clinton, somebody else right. nells great right Elbert although he had a billion different things going on, but I l birth I was like wait a minute. was that just like in so many different injuries? Yeah, you can pick out of a hat. And he probably had an injury, but clint. Yeah, the the concussions ship keep comeback so far nothing but Tanaka, but that could change like concussions are weird. You know where the brain is very very hard to predict and all that He's throwing a bullpen tomorrow. Okay, that's just said. That's a good step, but I feel like he's going to need. Then probably a few of those SIM Games I think he misses his first turn in the rotation and you've probably seen the second turn. Now who becomes the fit starter. I don't know if. They could just go with the opener, or they could also go with Schmidt they can go Elisa, who they look great. Still they go, King did law routes I guess that will play itself out over the next week or so Mister Dole with fifth starter I think having a options like Schmidt as looked great kings. Donnie LASAGNA's look. Great the bullpen is sixty eight and sixty six days during get used like you can't afford all day every five. Six days so I think they should just go like they have. They have the ability. And reason why not start it right now? He looks like he's seems like the candidate right now. Who should be kind like just? Why not try them out if he starts killing it? We're good if he doesn't. We have other options. Yeah I don't see really much of a downfall of it, and he clearly wants it, and he looks the part Yeah, I, don't I. Don't really see a downfall it. The next time you guys throw Lou is king and Schmidt. I guess it'll be interesting to see how much stretched out they are, and without Tip you off of the plan. Because right now they're just going to innings but if they get higher and higher than that will tell you okay, these guys are planning on. You know maybe going four innings. For that V started whatever so we'll see. But the good is that Tanaka is really experiencing. Those citizenship probably only missed one start, which is fantastic the rotation looks good. I mean the Red Sox the red sox rotation now with Iran out like they tweeted last night. It's Nathan you volley. Who originally thought was supposed to be closer, but they just need to start now making you volley..
