Netflix’s The Devil All the Time
"Netflix, now available for streaming the devil All the time is an ensemble crime drama Little film Noir ish with a bit of the grizzly to it, And it kind of recalls the cone brothers in their blood. Simple Fargo dark, twisted mode, but this has none of their mordant humor and in two hours and You know, 18 minutes, it does meander a bit here and there. Still, I thought it was a good one. Presenting this web of circumstances happened stances consequences that Titan's over the course of three decades, the forties fifties and sixties between two rural towns and a couple of families. One of the towns in Ohio, one of the towns in West Virginia, there a couple hours apart. And through these various inter related characters, you get a portrait of violence, seediness and perversity on DH, you know, and some of these characters are dedicated the religion, But that doesn't necessarily mean that good things were gonna happen to them, and the cast is First rate. Tom Holland plays Arvin Who's this quietly righteous grown up? Son of a good guy G I, who comes back from World War two, marries a waitress moves her and baby Arvin and do a fixer upper in the woods. And his dogged by tragedy that's almost biblical, and that that carries over to others whose lives were connected in the story, By the way, the role played by Holland. Yes, Spider Man himself. It's his closest you get to a heroic lead in the movie, and this British actor is pretty convincing as a young American from that part of the country. It's like he was bit by a radioactive hillbilly. I mean, really Totally thrilled with Tom Holland. Where can we watch this? The devil all the time? Yeah, it's good stuff. Bill Scars guard son of Stellan, brother of Alexander, best known in the States as Pennywise, the clown in the movies. He's He plays the father, and there's no trace of Pennywise here. Jason Clark, Riley Keogh Robert Pattinson, the new Batman in the Old Twilight vampire plays the young creature who's not above reproach. And surprisingly stocky, Sebastian stand the winter soldier from the Marvel movies as the Vincent Donofrio role of the power hungry local sheriff whose morals are questionable and we get it. It's a good movie again, not greatness. The director screenwriter here is Antonio Campos, and he adapts the devil all the time. The the book by Donald Ray Public who is actually the Narrator here and there. I always say show don't tell, but I was caught up in the desperation of all those involved.

"You know bring a tray of cookies and convince Lydia somehow that this was her idea to walk off into the woods. Yeah see I think I think the shown is capable of it because you know what caused her to snap in the first gaze is losing her family, and now that she improbably has this, you know post apocalyptic family that she loves so much that she would be willing to do anything including psychological. Warfare. Against a child per to keep it i. thought it was in that like envelope if she'll do anything to keep our community safe at this point. Sure. Yeah. What Lydia fingering Henry Scar like just just really working her her grimy fingernails in there and like Can I lace an unleashed? This can I can I can Can I find a moist in their part and Henry's dislike sitting there taking it. who directed the scene I wanNA know like. I like maybe a fifteen year old girls like I was GonNa, grab my boyfriend scars because I don't know what the Hell Do. I've been the walk with the dead I. Don't know how romance works they hinder shouldn't be like what the fuck are you doing get your fingers wound is supposed to be like. Like the mask because united, they like stitch up the back of the that's is why go? Yeah. Like I I'm not a lace. These things up I know this is I don't know it's I thought it was very. It was very bizarre way the play this weird fucking romance. I mean, the episode is called scars. So maybe they just needed to fixate on this for a little while and I don't know they're trying to do with that team I. Think you're right. I think they're trying to draw some kind of thing about it's not all scars. That's that's that was a preoccupation throughout the fucking episode Judith. Closes with a scar, not unlike Henry and wondering what's going to heal and not bad we'll get the X.'s like yeah, right right right. Right. So I think yeah. But also don't have her sticker dirty fucking Zombie previously, Zombie encased fingers in disguise fresh wound and I, don't know if you look. At some point he says like I gotta get I gotta get up. GotTa Walk Around and make sure these stitches hold is that proper medical advice? Are you supposed to try to pop your stitches when you get them just to make sure they're gonNA old? Do they have run a lap after the doctor puts them in No. But I guess the thought is like if you're about to be forced on a march to another community that's far away. They WanNa get you. You know it's not like you've got a choice to just lay up for a day or two they're going to kick you out. So might as well try it now where the medic is still there and you can redo it then get five miles up the road and just bust up you know Bust Open I I'm sure Daryl could carry him. Or Derek fucking. So him up. Yeah. Just like Oh. Yeah. With rabbit. Get some squirrel gut or rabbit gut in a Fishhook and I'll have I'll. I'll have y'all fix passed up man. Okay moving on to Judith Telling Darryl that she wants to help they're kind of sitting by a river here. I don't know win Alexandria got river. A water feature they did they did they got a windmill and guide the guy a river runs through this community. Now, they got a little mill pond setup. Sure. She she asked him to stay. She wants to help him. He thinks it's more important to move on and stay isolated so that Alexander will be safe and. Judith throws, Judah starts lobbing a bomb. The bombs says, what would rick do which ww rtd and scores pulling there too. I think it's cute. They're they're kind of sitting exactly like each other here both knees tucked into their chest I'm not sure what they're getting out with that but there's definitely. Some bonding happing here. I think it's I. It might what I assumed is that that's advice for the only children is like to get on their level and assume their posture mirror body language. Nice. Thought that like this is another example of Michigan. probably read the book or two about parenting and just being real good at it but this is. And Judith Oh it's Daryl. Yeah. Well, then okay he's terrible parenting I'm sure he's just he's just a child. So he's as her body language consciously because that's how he's feeling on the inside I was wondering yeah if if they were trying to compare to children here. It you know I I think more of Daryl than that. Certainly. But yeah emotionally he's got a lot of work to do. Yeah and I also liked the idea that judith is attracted to people who level with her and Darryl's deaf you know Michelle. Shown Jasmine shown that's the hilltop endanger. Of course not. So everything's GonNa be fine. Darryl's like I don't know maybe. And he doesn't tell her everything obviously because that's not what his mom her mom wants but Yeah Darrell Darrell turns out. He's a pretty good. There's a couple there's a line later on this episode that sketches him out to be this dad and I kind of like thought the hell the talking about but I started thinking. He's kind of a father figure to Henry he certainly father figure that Judith Year Yep So yeah, I guess that's that's why not Darryl Good Dad I'll go along with it. Sure. All right. The flashback continues Gabriel's playing the quiet game with the kids they found. shown sad the rick doesn't didn't get to see it and then she and Jocelyn. Talk about how children the future essentially, and she realizes Michaud can't live without knowing what happened to rick and encourages her to go look for him. And I think this is an amazingly written scene and it really uses Ms Wesley at our full powers because terra, her character and true blood is one of these characters where like you want her to be your girlfriend or you want her to be your girlfriend's girlfriend because she's just utterly reliable she is challenging in the best kind of ways she's lake is excellent listener, but she's also there in like an action capacity if you need her and she. Just I felt like she effortlessly slipped into this role and you know this is a really well crafted speech like her using a crazy coincidence of shown finding her with not ever giving up on rick and it really win. It turns out that she exploited Michaud now her like one of those vulnerable points and exploited one of oldest trusted legitimately lit a fire in me like I was fucking stop at this woman and I think that's an excellent use of casting like..

"He's handed all this success very early on he went from like essentially junior writer to executive producer in a single season. I don't want to psychoanalyze him, but it yeah, turns out like having having competent show runner. The gives a shit about the material that respects to fans and their characters. Is a huge boon and y you know you can't plug you can't. They're not just like interchangeable. cogs in a machine, some of them. Operate better than others for sure. Absolutely, and it's not like this season has particularly interesting material to work with, and that's why it's better right. It's it seems like they had really super interesting material that they could have used. In interesting ways in previous seasons and they just didn't. Really make. Use It. The same way over and over again and it just wore off your. That's the thing that makes me wonder like what? King would have done with the the saviour wars. Man I WANNA bowl over. Yeah. She taken over on terminus and kind of use this stuff along a little bit maybe cut out a whole but I don't know because the thing is is like This does this season feel overstuffed as far as terms of plot it's taken its time, but it's invested. It's time much smarter than in previous iterations of the show like you know there wasn't just like Oh God. We need a three episode arc because what the hell else are we going to do that doesn't really connect anything doesn't move characters are forward. These things are all disliked six or seven mini arcs that are been given to various characters and they play off each other like look at the tension between Aaron and Michelle now that machines like right. After Aaron's learned a hard lesson about you know going outside the walls and he's Gung Ho about security law and order. Now suddenly there's tension between him and because because show kind of changed your mind not because you know she won't clean went crazy like she had a lot of conversations with people she respected and loved, and we're trying to you know and the the natural interplay is what I think is is fascinating. What what makes it makes us care about people when they die and walked and Roofer then the live you know like there's not i. This is the first time a long time I. I can't think of a single person in any the communities from. ROUTING FOR THEM DIE Like maybe Bar Code Tattoo that's his leftover You know that's left over Gimpo stint I think. Yeah. No you're right.

Yes. Sixty two percent of all US theaters are open now and there's going to be more to come covid permitting, of course, and those movies that can't make it to the multiplex will be available for rental or streaming in sickness and in health people, you can't keep a good movie down.

That's geared to fire up the fall season and in theaters and with your mask and distancing in place you can strap in for this kind of Christopher Nolan throw ride and watch the spy master he's played by John David Washington give James Bond a run for his money you know you just have to. Get your head around the physics in this movie. Maybe don't know about how you can go forward and backwards in time at the same time I don't know either I was a little confused by that but you'll be glued to the visual miracles that are on screen here every cent of tenants two, hundred, million dollars production budget shows up onscreen Eisele popped. Jaw dropped pulses. Oh, pound all that good stuff movies and back baby. So what else do we have?

Herself as a man to replace her sick father in the Imperial Army the new moon is not musical and there's no comic relief from eating Murphy as the Voice of a fast talking dragon named Moo Shu. This is not that kind of movie. There's no whitewashing but using Western actors in the drawn from Chinese legend and as Rouland the astounding Lou ye. Leads in Asian cast that includes martial arts icon jet. Li is the emperor up and China's leading actress Gong Li as shape shifting witch who teaches on how to survive and prosper in a man's world.

Gadot, remember her places the DC comics immortal wonder woman into the cold. War where she does battle with the media tycoon played by Pedro Pascal and the villainous Cheetah played by Kristen Wiig always to me an asset in any movie Chris. Pine also returns Steve Trevor The American. Pilot that one woman loves I know didn't he die the last time during World War? One people you gotta go with this this is Hollywood. So if we can borrow wonder woman's last sube truth for a moment, credibility isn't the issue here. It's the show stopping stunts engineered by returning director Petty Jenkins executed by Godot, and she's a formal Israeli military structure. So you know you're in for a really good time. Next up is black widow look wonder woman has competition already. You know we've been waiting since spring for Marvel to let its first solo black widow epic out of storage and into theaters.

Recording police brutality: how technology is driving the new civil rights movement
"Hey everybody seemingly from the verge cast really special interview episode this week yesterday the verge published feature package where calling capturing the police which was a months-long effort for almost everybody at the site to really interrogate the role of technology in the movement against police violence. The heart of the package is a feature where we talk to. People who had filmed the somewhat viral videos of police violence asking him why they did it. What happened next how they felt in the moment whether they would do it again, really contextualising these that we've seen over and over and over again we estimate videos. One is about a specific incidents with a specific set of men in Baytown Texas who filmed police violence and what happened next another one from the science team is about body cameras and police body cameras, and how they affect your perception. What's going on in some academic research that's come out about that. So I asked verge reporter, Steven and verge video producer, my calf, the two leaders of the site wide project To come on, say talk to me about the project what they learned in.

This is the direct intersection of technology and culture, which is something the virtuous. Investigate. So this is a really great conversation with John and Maria and a really big project. We're very proud of it that'd be read. Watch it here are John and Maria. Maria Abdul. John Steven Welcome to the virtuous easy doing well I. I'm doing great another beautiful day in. Quarantine Mario. How are you? I'm good. I'm very relieved that this really big thing that we have produced is out there. So now I get to. Take back and reflect de. So Youtube or the editorial leaders have big projects that four I would say two months we just called the police project I. Hope Everybody can see it on site. We're very proud of it in scope it looks at how people have been using technology to record the police record police behavior protests use technology and the tools to organizers protests to organize. The movement around police brutality, and then a lot of how those cameras in particular affect our relationship with the police. So it was a huge project and it looks like one big feature, a bunch of. Additional reports around that feature in two videos that my help produce. Let's start with where it came from. How did this project begin in? How did it take the shape that it ended up being on the site? That is very, very good question because. It was sort of such a big undertaking. We it started in a very different direction than it ended as I think a lot of large projects generally tend to. So it started with an idea, a sort of idea in the staff, one of our executive editor was like we should do something to capture the moment then it sort of fell on me to shape that idea. Which is, which is interesting sort of problem because I was very interested in. Working with the initial iteration of the of the project, but getting a chance to shape it meant that I had to think critically about sort of what what would fit the moment and what would capture the moment. Well, I would say so that's how we came came up with the idea of focusing on the people filming videos of police brutality because it felt like there was a section missing to the narrative that was Benjamin. Circulating around social media, which is to say, we don't really hear from those people like we hear a lot from from victims we hear from police officers, but we don't really hear from people who like the everyday people who are sort of in the line of fire and decide to make the very brave decision to pick up their phones and record and sh like shine light like shed light. On on this type of violence that really sort of goes undocumented because one of the things we police finances, it never really shows up police reports. Yeah. One thing that caught me is I say this a lot but this is a new way of using phones that fundamentally what's happening with with all of these if you look at our feature, we started at very intentionally with Rodney King. George holiday that the person who shot the Rodney King beating in the nineties using gigantic Sony eight millimeter cassette handicap which basically no one had those like some families WanNa had those. But the the that camera was present at that moment in time at one am on that corner to witness that thing was astoundingly improbable and as we've come to now, the presence of cameras is actually more likely than not in just the way people live their lives and so the decision to record seems at once. Easy simple. Everyone has a camera. It seems likely that everything will be recorded, but it also turns out to have dramatic consequences. Yeah. Yeah. I think one of the main threads which will I'm sure get into later is a lot of these people felt afraid of retaliation from the police because they posted on social media they sort of were indentifying themselves as targets, Samara and you pretty. Videos here how how did you pick the two together the verge video team did want in the verge science team did one how do we land in those two? So. At the first video and Ben Evita's. I initially saw the video on this very large like database of other videos, police brutality that had been collected, and that was being shared on twitter that we were using that we were looking through for this project, and when I first saw the video I serve noted it as something worthy. But because it had, it didn't happen at a protest. It wasn't the the video that I thought I was going to focus on but after just Justin Callum did the interview with Isaiah for the peace reporters feature in. Told me after he published the video, there had been an increased police surveillance in his life and that he was feeling a lot of anxiety and a Lotta paranoia since he published video. It just really struck me that he still even with all of the sphere and all this anxiety and what was happening he still wanted to talk to us because he had told Justin that he was interested in being part of the video project and so as soon as she told me that I spoke to him and as we sort of spoke, it was just. So clear that he understood the magnitude of recording and he understood the consequences that comes with it and yet still wanted to bring awareness to not only this moment but also what happens when you record the police? So that's how we landed on that video. So our second video on the role of body cams and capturing police brutality fell imperative that we would cover. It in that way given that it's not only bystander footage that is coming out of these recent protests. It's also a lot of body CAM footage in. So we thought it was important and imperative, and that verge science team thought it was imperative to also cover the role of camps and capturing police brutality, but also how they might actually influence how we perceive police. Violence. So it just added a different layer and a different impact to this larger piece. One thing that caught me about that and Addie has report that just is really stuck with me as we went through the project about how all these videos of protests and police violence are becoming a genre film, and as I read that and I watched the body cam video. It just occurred to me that we actually have to use of the formal language of film to describe what's happening here that the body cam is telling the story because it's one kind of camera it shows you one kind of it has a gaze and all these other cameras have another kind of perspective in it. I. Don't think we ever think about that as these videos is having maybe like that formal connection between what the cameras are doing and what you is the viewer perceived and that to me has been a very powerful through line of this whole project. Actually cameras are active participants in these stories and they shape the narrative. The same way that we we know this in every other situation where there's cameras camera shape the narrative, and they leave things out in a enhance other things and that to me I think there's going to be a big long cultural reckoning over the role of cameras in these moments because we don't really understand how that affects our blazing to the culture to the police to the state, and it's changing because the. Cameras Right now I mean it is ironic a little bit that this genre films started in Los Angeles. Well, that's the most cameras right and it's I mean like you know if you think about it that way it's like it makes sense that like Rodney, King beating was filmed by a person in Los Angeles and maybe not elsewhere but also I, think I think it's interesting that you bring up peace because i. I do think filmmakers understand this. And it is also I mean to to get not conspiratorial but to go a little bit off the rails which I still think it's in line but. The US government spends a not insignificant amount of money advising film makers were making films about the police and the military, and they do get some of these editorial. Editorial. Control some of the stuff. and. I think that perspective does shape the way that we see some of these institutions. Which is why I think it's very powerful that. People on the ground filming and they're making their own narratives about these institutions in real time. So let's start there. That's the that's the big feature. That's the piece reporters. It's eleven interviews with people who film police violence. I want to just immediately atop credit or creative director William troll and the engineer from the box media team Adler who built this thing it is beautiful is quite an experience to go through it. But the stories are actually of course, the most powerful thing. John, tell me about one thing you said to me at the very beginning of this project was this is the same story over and over again? Yes. And there's something about the volume of it that I think really brings it home feature came together and tell me hey, came to that realization and tell us what that story actually is. Yeah. So we interviewed a lot of people that was that was the hard part. One of the hardest parts of the projects was finding people who actually wanted to talk to us but I think we were using Greg sets list on twitter to find some of these people Shasta Greg I did actually interview him for. The you know that's a separate thing but yeah, I think I mean I. Think it's very it's interesting right because through these videos like they all have the same, the same beginning middle and end and. It's once you've see enough of them. It's very it's becomes predictable where the rising action in the falling action isn't purely film criticism terms I. Think the reason that we decided to go this route was because it adds context experience police violence like it's one of the things that like it really gives depth to what's going on and it's stuff that you don't normally see and the idea was to bring that sort of reality. Home to people reading, which is why the reason it's the same story every time and the reason that it's sort of like it was distracting actually at the beginning because I was like, okay, this is a different place. This is a different time. These are different people, but like chronicling the experience effective people in the same way, and that's why it was the same story every time because it's not every day that you see. Somebody who is like an officer? Who's who has sworn an oath to protect the public, just beating the shit out of. A peaceful protester and I think it's one of those things it sort of jars you out of complacency and I think for a lot of the people that we spoke to the interviews it seemed like these people were very sort of Shell. Shocked. They sort of knew the extent of the problem but a lot of them were just normal people who happen to be a protest and happened to be filming when stuff went down and so it was very strange reading these these. Reports from the ground like these eleven fourteen over and over again because. One of the reasons I think that it's important that we have the dateline like when it happened where it happened and like you know how many shares or whatever it, the the videos got was because it, it gave back some necessary context because again, if you're if you're reading this stuff in a vacuum if you're just reading reports. From. People who filmed the stuff it really does get eerily similar in for whatever it's worth videos are almost all at night. If they're usually chaotic and they all feel like are happening same place. Yeah. It's really strange and maybe they are I mean at least psychically speaking right like it's it is the same sort of mental place I think yeah and that was one of the notes as we were putting the thing together that we got from our editors was this we have to return some sense of place to it. So we we added that back in as you were kind of editing each of these individual vignettes. was there a theme that that really came out from each of the people? Was it? What what strikes me as as I watch all these videos there's just everyone has a phone out. Right like all the time it just seems like this instinct to have your phone out that to me is new. That's yeah. That's not how people thought ten years ago or twenty years ago I really do think that's in large part because of the power of social media because again, like the thing about social media, people dismiss it out of hand as like a bad and toxic place which a lot of the time it is like don't get me wrong. However, it is one of the only avenues for social change for people who are marginalized like it's a place where you can go to be heard. By by the institutions who would normally just have the power to ignore you and I think like police violence is one of those things where it is like it is sort of an abuse of power, right? It's one of these. It's like something that it won't show up on an incident report somebody like a cop like using their baton on a protester but if somebody films that and films like the circumstances where it where it happened how it happened like you you you you get a sense of whether or not this was justified and I think. A lot of the Times it's not and a lot of the Times that goes on reported and I think. People have seen that you can actually like get some measure of justice from these otherwise unaccountable institutions by sharing the stuff on social media because public pressure is still a thing and it's interesting that to go back to Isaiah Ben Evita's. He has video that officer fired like his him posting the video actually made a change at the very local level. In his town and I think I think that's a really important thing and I, that's that's sort of what's driving this stuff because again, institutions like the police were previously entirely unaccountable to the public. Mario I mean you, you are yourself filmmaker you talked to Isaiah how do you? How do you take that? That everyone is just instinctively pulling out their phone because they think it will lead to some some change down the road. I think what's interesting about Isiah specifically is that this video doesn't take place at a protest it. He was filming outside of a convenience store they were coming from a barbecue. They hadn't gone to protests recently, they were the at that moment they weren't planning necessarily planning on going to protest later that week however. In as the video begins, you hear him say I've got to get out and record this. You also hear his friends in the car say we've got a record this and yet when we interviewed them, it was the first time any of them had ever recorded police had ever been with other people who recording the police and I think that is largely part to seeing these videos. On twitter and on facebook of police violence being captured by by citizens being captured by civilians, and so they wanted to hold this police officer accountable and they also started recording him preemptively. They didn't start recording him the moment he started you know approaching them they started recording the minute they were pulling over in. So I think that really signifies to us at least to me that. Even. If you've never participated in a protest or never participated in filming the police, you now know that's an option for you. That's an option for you and that's an option for your community. It is I do think the third part that is going on said here. Is that like it is a protective thing too. You have evidence that maybe you weren't doing anything wrong even like, okay like you get pulled over by the cops and they sight probable cause like you're sitting there peacefully. You get to tell your story, view the camera to I think. These videos, I. Am sure are showing up in courts of law across the country. One thing that's really interesting about this. Again, I come back to that the piece from addy come back to the the body cam video from the science team. I was filming someone else he was at a remove right? It was his friend who is in in the encounter at the police. Most of the powerful videos we see the lead to change our are removed. They're not from the participants. How do you? How do you think that plays out in this larger? There's a lot of change in this country. Now, there's a lot of conflict actually WANNA talk we we published the piece yesterday there's been some criticism I wanNA talk about that. But right now we're we're seeing one sort of very clear perspective from a remove. How do you think that's that's playing I. think a big part of when you hear Isaiah speak about filming he talks about the fact that he constantly to remind himself to take a step back because he knew the moment that he engaged directly with these officer, the officer could come out for could come for him. You know he had he very much understood the power dynamics at play. Even, as him as the filmer, so he kept as the officer kept getting closer he kept moving back and he would ask you can hear in the learned the full twelve minute video this incident you continuously hear him ask the other officer in the video hayes it. Okay. If I'm standing here, is it okay if I'm standing here, he's very conscientious of his body and his proximity to the violence to the violence has been that's being enacted against his friends and when we interviewed him the reason that he did take a step back was because he knew that if they took him if he got arrested along with his friends that that video. Might, not like not not got published right? Like he might not get his phone back. These things might happen and he knew the power of that video and the power of what he was holding his hands and he wanted to share it with the world so that meant taking a step back so he do that and it doesn't mean that it didn't traumatize him every time he sees the video he gets. Traumatized by seeing his friends violated in this way however, he understood that the consequences would not have been possible. Had he not taken a step back and capture according? I also think. Just. Generally speaking like we tend to trust videos that come from outside sources or people who are around but not exactly involved. It adds another like an extra veneer of credibility. I think which is. Another reason that like some of the biggest videos that we see are not like it's not the body cam it's not the person on the ground being choked to death. At, somebody else. Who has has has had the same realization as as but. I think you know just subjectively with trust trust those perspectives more because they feel more objective. CVT camera just happened to capture the incident on on film. I would say with this specific incident like the group that was arrested. In Zambia. The was interested but his friends, Skyler Gilmore Phillips were they were all taking part in questioning this officer across the parking lot. So I don't think they were necessarily objective I. Don't I. Don't think they were I think they saw there being pulled over, they recognize the police officer there friend had just been with them at this barbecue and I think the fact that he was able to get the video out there in the fact that you can see the whole incident play out right? Like in our video we don't show the whole twelve minute video, but it's like five minutes. Of Not, much going on until the officer sort of approaches them. So I think the added quote unquote like credibility is that you see the beginning middle and end of that incident Isaiah did not stop recording until the police left Isaiah began filming before the police had even had even gotten out of their cars. So I think with this specific video, it's less about the eject objectively and more about the fact that he was able to capture all. How do you think that ties into one thing that we write about a lot surveillance where all being surveilled all the time you mentioned TV cameras. A on a different day in a different moment. The way our talks about like extremely prevalent C. T. V. Cameras is crap ring put a camera everywhere. Now we're being surveilled in the cops have access to this footage, right? At the same time what we've been talking about a lot is the presence of this camera at a remove actually serves a purpose is Asia. Taking that video from that remove sort of purpose. How should we think about this balance because I I personally right? Like you catch me in a different minute. I'm over here. I'm over there. Actually surveillance is good. No, I think the difference is it really depends on like the the institution that has the footage and what they want to do it. Right like the cops when they get ring footage and what I mean like it's not it's like the cops are using footage to incriminate and I think generally this is very generally speaking in very, very general terms like it's evidence, right? And you know when it's coming from people on the ground protests were filming. It's documentation it's like the same footage, but it can be used in very different ways depending on who's doing the asking. For, the footage like and where it's going I think I think that context is actually super important right? Because like in England, for example, there are cameras everywhere. There's just like municipal cameras run by the fucking. Like in London, for example, there's there's cameras run by the Metropolitan Police Department, and that's just that's just a fact of life. And I think it's interesting because like they I think they have like controls on how you can use that stuff whereas with ring networks here it's like sort of ad hoc private companies turning it over to the police whenever they feel like it. I don't know I guess I'm going on a little tangent here. I really do think that like it depends on who's asking for the footage and what they intend to do with it. I think you know people taking footage is as it's intended to sort of exonerate his friends and that they weren't doing anything wrong and this sort of an unjustified thing. And I think the intent really matters. So I think that it's not just about the presence of cameras and footage, but it's also about who has those cameras and this of act of pulling out your phone to question authority to question police officers is actually referred to as surveillance by scholars. It is the opposite of surveillance. Right surveillance is often reserved for those in power. It doesn't necessarily mean it's always the state surveilled someone but the moment that you begin to surveilled them, you were taking a bit away a bit of their agency away from them. You're taking a bit of their privacy away from them but soon, valence is this idea of challenging. Authority by trying to sort of disrupt this power dynamic by filming your oppressor by filming specifically in marginalized communities, the police, and so with surveillance, it is the idea of this is what we're talking about right like it's not mentioned one time in the videos nor is it mentioned in any of these pieces but all of this is what scholars refer to sue balance, which was coined by Steve Man, and it's all about looking from below. So you're not looking from below you're not the person who is above and the position of power. You are the person who's often surveilled right like with Isaiah and friends like they were they knew this officer they. They had never recorded this officer, but they not only knew of him. They had previously had seen incidences of him, and so I think by pulling out their phone, what they're doing is trying to challenge this authority figure to them that had represented sort of. Head oppressed in had sort of harassed or had allegedly harassed and targeted African Americans in their community. So they see this officer, they see their black friend being pulled over they understand this officer had allegedly been targeting and harassing African Americans they pull out their phone to begin to try to create a counter narrative, and before any of these things I think Bijon spoke about this earlier like when you start recording early on, you can sort of see the maybe there wasn't any probable cause and what you hear them saying the first few minutes of the video is, what's the probable cause? What's probable cause like why did you over in the officer officers aren't engaging right? and. So I think the role of that video in that moment is about who has it right? Like you can hear them. Surveillance video from above that's muted that can be distorted. It's about the person who got out of the car who started filming. Once they start one saw him started getting attacked the person who filmed at the very beginning and surveillance often doesn't involve you filming. Once you see the police officers sort of attacking someone but you film when you see a police officer because you want to challenge there are over you. Yeah. The when I say we're GONNA face a long period of cultural reckoning over this I don't think that we the surveillance scholarship is that it's very early stages right and it's not builds out. It's not complete. We're learning how it works and that to me is one of. You know when when the smartphone cameras invented I don't think people thought the people who invented the ship in the back of every smartphone thought we're going to have to have a conversation about surveillance when this is all said and done and that to me is. Right and that I think about that, all of the time like there are engineers and product managers and designers who make these products. and. Sometimes they have a guest of how they'll be used but this to me is one of the most surprising revolutionary uses of the technology right just fundamentally and I think this conversation about what does it mean for everyone to record the state? What does it mean for the state? Maybe record your back with a body camera or something else it's going to change the nature of our relationship with the people in power. It is interesting like one of the things that fascinates me about taking video protest specifically is like I think, a lot of police officers on the ground seat is violence when somebody holds a camera to them because it like it does challenger Authority, but it also like like it is a a thing creating a record in real time that they cannot control in a situation and I think it's just very strange because. Yeah I mean, the perspective really matters who's who's taking the video really really really matters. Let's talk about that for a minute in this conversation. In the feature, we have very intentionally chosen to highlight one perspective people filming the videos. We have almost no perspective from the police in return know perspective from the state in return as we are making this project I, you know the editor in chief ultimately I'm for everything I knew we were making that decision I felt comfortable with it. We do hear a lot from the police, but that notion that the camera is impeding the the police officers job that the police are themselves scared of violence they need to be protected that there are people with guns in the street Often fear for their lives how do you think that I mean the piece is almost yesterday right for many people liked it. Some people were critical of it. We appreciate the criticism and makes us better. But how do you how were you prepared for that criticism that there was no perspective from the police as after pieces published how did he react and where are you at now? That's a really I mean that's a really really good question I haven't seen much of that criticism. Charts to my filters I. Guess My. But it's I mean I think the larger question of like what police think is really interesting to me new I. Don't know if you know there's been a few years ago. I actually spent a year in Ohio reporting a story on cops there and like. Like this, this very, it was Liverpool East Liverpool Ohio, which is a very small town between it's like West Virginia Pennsylvania and Ohio. It's right on the border of those places and it was the site at one point of the like it had the worst heroin. Like heroin outbreak people were dying of overdoses every single day like the average was like one a day and the police department was like it largely fell on them to take care of the people and it was really interesting because I what I did was like I just spent like my time going on right alongside like. Suit up get my notebook get in the car and we drive around like I would smoke black and milds with this cop, and we would like He. He would pick people up and so I went to the county jail and like I saw the mechanisms of the state like from the passenger seat, which was very interesting because like the more time you spend with police officers, the more you understand that like. Seeing people seeing people's worst every day does something very bad to your brain. It puts you on extremely high alert. And it makes ordinary situation seem incredibly terrifying and I think. One of the things that goes unexplored is the trauma police officers sort of feel, and they just don't talk about it like all of these. There were seven people department all of them were very, very, very clearly traumatized. In a way that was not obvious to them, but very obvious to me is like an outside observer. And it was interesting because like the other thing that they did most of the time, it was just like social work they were just they knew all the people that were talking to they were involved in the community. Everybody knew them like I remember. The COP I was with like picked up this woman because she like had drugs on her. And he was like, why? Why? Like what happened like we talked about this I let you go last time because like you said, you were working on your raptor what happened to that and it was like one of these things where I was like Oh this guy actually really doesn't understand like where these people are coming from we ended up having to take her to the county. Jail because she didn't have money for bail is like one hundred bucks and he was like on the on the hour long ride back. He was fuming that she would have to spend this long in jail just because she didn't have hundred dollars and so it's one of these things I think like you know there are good cops. The police is fundamentally like disordered. I will say it's like. And I think both of those things are in conversation with each other because like again, there are days that are incredibly bad like this cop was telling me like the worst day of his life I ask offhandedly by the way never ask cop with the worst day of their life is. He Was Not prepared for the answer which was like he was like Oh. Yes. So I had to respond to a call this. This guy had kids who you know his his kids were friends with he locked them in the House and burn the house down because his wife was cheating on him and so this cop had to respond to the call and then go tell kids afterward what happened and it was I was just like that is just like outside. So outside of the scope of a normal person's life. That it's like did it requires examination right and I think that's the kind of trauma that these people are like seeing like one of those one of those events can scarred for life I don't necessarily think being police officer is as dangerous to save a firefighter like statistically speaking. But again, like these horrific incidents of violence really do change your perspective and I think a lot of this kind of trauma is invisible and goes unexamined and it's difficult because a protests which is a very ordinary event. There is A. There is some potential for stuff to go wrong and I think if you're on the lookout for that, like it makes it skews your perspective and you can't see what is happening objectively, which is I think why it's very important that people also film the police at these events because there is another record that is being created in real time.
Undocumented People With No Health Insurance Struggle Especially Hard From COVID-19
"People who contract code 19 can spend months trying to get better. That struggle is especially hard for one group. That's a high risk of getting the virus undocumented people who don't have health insurance. NPR's Joseph Shapiro has one family's story. Laundries. Father got covert 19 in early August. He came home from a Chicago hospital. So what was that? Like the day he came home? Oh, my God, who are also have beat everybody in the hospital was like he was a But today there was no more hope for him. Where, like All my God, I don't know where leg thing guy. He's still here with us. Her father Jose spent three months in the hospital. Jose he's from Mexico is an undocumented immigrant. That's why we agreed to use just first names. He was in the I C U then in the rehab wing. Now he's home, but with long term maybe lifelong disabilities. Across the country. Latinos are hospitalized for Kobe and almost five times the rates of white people who aren't Latino. It's hard to count how many undocumented immigrants get cove it, but they're at high risk. Often they don't have health insurance. They may live in crowded homes and work in dangerous jobs in nursing homes, food plants or, like Jose in restaurants. And I see you have something on your neck. Were you on a ventilator? Yes, I spoke to Jose on a video call. He's propped up on pillows in bed. He shows the white bandage that covers the spot where a surgeon cut a sweat into his neck. To insert it, too. For the ventilator, only the Honda. Then Jose pulls up his dark blue polo shirt to show the tube to a stomach. Holland removes the phone Cameron to show it. Yes, I'm feeling to have a feeding too. That's how he's still getting fed. He hopes the tube will come out soon in. Maybe this week. Yeah. Let's take it out. Ah, staff at the hospital taught Jose's wife how to use a syringe toe push the nutrients through that feeding tube and howto work a portable ventilator. When he first came home, he still needed that ventilator to breathe. Jose has no health insurance. Some nurses come by and check on him from time to time. Still, the vast majority of Jose's Karen home, including some pretty high level medical care falls to the family. That's appalling toe. I eat Aguila cello. She's a research professor who studies healthcare disparities at Northwestern University's Medical School in Chicago. This require more specialized business, the nurse to come and take care of this gentleman at home rather than two. Let the wife and other members of the family to take care of the care That's not acceptable, for sure, not acceptable. But Bob Shaye, who started a nonprofit devices for the disabled, says it's typical. We see them all week every week now. Where people are getting discharged with scarred lungs damaged heart complete loss of mobility, neurological issues, they're still significantly limited. Then it's just up to the family does somehow figured out from there for Jose Shay's group donated a wheelchair. Ah hospital bed and other medical equipment, things that can cause thousands of dollars, especially if you don't have health insurance. Jose would like to go back to working in a restaurant. But his old job is gone. Maybe no more. And first he's got months and months, maybe longer to recover. There's an advantage to living in his multi generational family. His older Children are working for now they're paying the rent, and they're buying his medicine.

We saw that. bitcoin strong couple of wakes up seven point eight percent beckon the twentieth of July. Then the twenty seventh of July were up eleven percent. So a guy in a strong way. The third of August, the start of August, we saw the handle up five point five non then the tenth of August, two percent. Then we would down two point two, five in the last month. Last.

What is online service provider?
"Ages ago Chris and I did an episode about online service providers. But this time we want to specifically look at prodigy partly because it was one of the earliest in fact, depending upon whom you ask the earliest online service provider. Now, online service providers are different from Internet service providers, right? So I'M GONNA. Blow your minds out their kids. So you youngins out there there was a time when we did not all have access to the Internet. It was a terrifying time dinosaurs roamed the earth. Occasionally, you would go camping and an enormous guy in a hockey mask would chase you around the eighties tough y'all I actually do remember that time dimly I mean I I was you know not necessarily eating all food yet and I could barely read but I do in fact, recall a time before the Internet I grew up in that time and I bear the scars to this day. Also I don't read that much currently. But at any rate nowhere, we're talking about a time where. The computer revolution had really taken hold of personal computers had already become a a rising trend it still was. Kind of a rarity to find someone who owned a personal computer it wasn't like Pc's everywhere certainly not now but they were certainly getting very popular in the mid eighty s and more and more people were adopting them as the price was becoming more affordable for the average household rather than for hobbyists only right. Right. So those those bleeding edge technology adopters who somehow have the jobs that allow them to to adult their obsession with technology they had already gone through the first wave, and now it was trickling down to everybody else arrayed. We're we're talking about the kind of the two eighty, six sort of days prodigy started. Up So. During those times your computers. Early computers were really especially for personal computers were just self contained devices right? It was whatever you software you had to run on that machine and that was pretty much it. which would put on the machine with fancy fancy, a five and a quarter inch floppy desk. Wouldn't necessarily even have a hard drive you might just run it directly from the disks. So in other words, disc was popped out that was it. You didn't have an program anymore Yay. Operating system although you might not even call it that anyway. Eventually. you start seeing things like modems where you can do things like connect to a local bulletin board system or B s this was usually something that was hyper local as something that would be running the same city that you live in because in order to connect to most BBS, as you had to dial a specific number and usually it was a, it was a local number, a local number you could dial into a bbs that's run in a state. You know twenty states away long distance charges at the time were also such that that that it would have been incredibly cost prohibitive. Yeah. Anyone any kid. Who experimented with connected to BBS is might find out rapidly from his parents or her parents that. It was not the best idea to do that without parental. Agreement beforehand because you can rack up huge bills I, mean this is the era where long distance charges were a real thing I know that a lot of people today aren't even they don't. That's not something they even think about because. In most cases, you don't have a long distance charge anymore about once a month I marvel at the incredible present, and the fact that I can call people all over the country without having any without worrying about Oh. We talked for five minutes. This is going to cost me twenty bucks or whatever and they have not said anything value. So so at any rate at this time, that was pretty much it, and then there became this idea of the online service provider away for companies to create services that would open up brand new opportunities for consumers, and it was before the Internet had rolled out to being something that the general public could access. So be sure but people were looking for a way to provide service to to consumers who wanted to communicate and be to companies who wanted to sell more stuff give give companies an outlet to sell more stuff. Right. So this was a this was. The idea like instead of instead of the Internet the Internet, it's the network of networks right? It's all these different computers that are connected together and lots of different types of communication goes across the Internet from email to file transfers to web traffic. All of that stuff is going on across the Internet an online service provider is more like a very small network. It's not a network of networks is a network in which you use your computer to dial into a host computer and the host computer serves up all the information on it that it has. So in other words, instead of having access to everything in the world, you just have access to whatever the host computer has on it. And online service providers did this in different ways.
6 New Travel Mistakes To Avoid Thanks To The Pandemic
"Thinking of traveling with its domestically internationally anytime in the next year, there's a whole bunch of watch outs need to know and mistakes that other travelers making that you need to avoid if you're thinking of travelling during this whole pandemic situation that we find ourselves in Alabama. This is tips for travelers I wanNA talk about things you really need to know some things have going to discuss includes. Using travel agent or self booking higher hall packing situation can change the big mistakes that people making that you need to avoid, and probably the single most important thing you need to think about platform and know exactly what you're going to do when you're traveling in the current situation. The first key watch out is when you're thinking of travelling is assume that everything will change change very quickly. So even if you can go to certain country today or to certain state. Today that could change overnight and we've seen lots of examples happen where it's perfectly fine to fly to particular country like Spain for example, out of the UK but within hours of that could change. So countries are constantly evolving and looking at what they see as safe places to travel with you have to have quarantined with you go in with you have when you return and it changes really fast. I have had friends get on a plane heading off to Spain. For example, they've arrived learned that the UK government was about to bring in quarantining midnight got on the plane and come back because they didn't want to go into fourteen day quarantine. So when you think about traveling assume that things can change very quickly and it's really really important that you stay on top of all the advice you need to say, well, connected to the news what I recommend you do is try and book as last minute as you possibly can. You also like to get really good deals nowadays by booking last minute. So you booking when you know that the chance of everything going smoothly is pretty smooth. It's really hard now to book in advance because we just don't know what the situation is going to be. Secondly, if you book even if you're booking way ahead is ensure that everything is council refundable off movable. So if change you can move things around without any penalties. The good news is a lot of. Providers with airlines or cruise lines or hotels are making it much easier to things that absolutely critical make sure that things are cancelable, refundable and easy to move. So you can basically go with the flow. The second big watch out is that if you do your own booking which I used to like to do I'd like to my hotel separately my flight separately my accommodation separately whatever it was separately. One thing you might want to decide is don't do that book at all through a travel agent the reason being that if you have to change things, it becomes very complicated because it's four or five different context 'cause. To change things if you've booked everything through a travel agent, it's one call one email and you can sit back and let them get on with everything. You'd have to sit on phone lines for five hours, six hours to try and get through to change flights. It takes an enormous amount of stress out it makes things much simpler. So even if you a sort of person that likes to pick and mix juju thing I strongly recommend that you book through a travel agent I've seen examples now doing with all my travels over this period of time is using a travel agent to make it simple. The great news is. Also particular abroad, and you have connectivity issues or this time difference issues with that one call that one email you can basically relax keep common that happens it's been a great plus in the positive traveling when there's been lots of disruptions able to contact the agency that time was Monday cruising I convinced it back relax to the beach while everyone else was scarring around and I knew they were sorting out problems. So seriously think about using travel agent at this point tiger, he can manage all of the changes or the refunds, and basically a very importantly linked to my first point make sure that you know exactly the. Situation as changes, they will keep on top those potential cancellations and changes in quarantine rules or whatever the third watch that I have, and this is a really really important one as well is don't assume that everything has returned to normal I. Think one of the big mistakes that people making is they seem their everything today. When it comes to travel is back to normal. There are three critical things that you need to bear in mind. First of all, you need to absolutely check and make sure that everything is open just because lockdowns are ending it doesn't mean that everything is open some things may have even gone bankrupt. Just simply not opening because for whatever reason, they are able to come regulations that country letting them open the beaches may not be having you might have to book to go to the beaches you might have book time started to pool. The attractions may not be open they. You might have to have certain restrictions before you can go into see the site of the museum that you wanted to see the theme parks may not be entirely open early civil rights might be open. So there's a multitude things you need to make sure that are open before you actually decide that is what you want to go because you might be able to do what you really want to do secondly. Things may not run as you used to expect them to. Or maybe very different. So for example, many islands in the Caribbean. Some states in the US, some countries around the world requires covid nineteen test within seventy two hours of heading name for example, other countries. For example, Greece, you have to register online twenty, four hours before you go, you get a special qr courage you have to show when you check in. So hundreds and thousands of people have mystere. To Greece because they didn't understand that whole system, get the qr codes or do the paperwork correctly. So you need to assume the things are going to run differently and it's going to be really different requirements
Luka Doncic clips the Los Angeles Clippers with game winning shot
"In Game three and their loss. The Dallas Mavericks left the game did Luca don changes in the third quarter? He left the game with an ankle injury. He was listed as a game time decision today in the Dallas loss in Game three. Christophe Cruising Had a very good game. 31 points. You picked up the slack Despite the fact the Mavericks lost by eight so entering game number four this afternoon. Question was what Look, um, play. The answer was Yes. Okay, so Dallas is going to get Luca on a bum wheel. But the good news is you still have. Christopher is English. Right? Well right before tip off, we all find out that Chris stop forcing. This is not playing for Dallas. He's got a knee issue. He's just out for the game. So look is playing Trey Burke gets to start and everyone's wondering. Wait. What just happened here? And then all of a sudden, Williams started to move before he had to go back and retrieve it on the left sideline. Jackson guarding him in the right hand on the cross over into the paint shoots off the left foot scores. Lou Williams 14 points in the first half. The Williams would have a saw and outstanding game for the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers lead this one by his many is 21 points. Believe the second quarter, the Mavericks actually started to make a run. And then all of a sudden it would be the Dallas Mavericks that had the Liebert try to sleep through a tip plateau by heart away to the rim along the right baseline spins Homer reverse layup. It's the first lead for the Mavericks since he was five before 5 73. Dallas was down as many as 21. They actually would take the lead and they would make the lead grown the screen. Luca drives right slot spend 3 60 Black right. Shoot scars in one. Stop it. Luka Dantchev 27 points, 11 rebounds, 12 assists. We're not yet to the forth, and he has the Mavericks up seven. That's the funny part, John saying Stop it. We're not even close to being done yet. Luca don chips would have himself a day Dallas would go from down 21 toe up by 12.

Three Having fun Yet Yet two two point point game game is is why why Leonard Leonard and and Luke Luke Adachi Adachi is is putting putting on on a a show show shot shot making making at at its its finest finest 1 1 19 1 17 at that point from under the rim of the left corner out of the deep left corner checks and buries it. On the hardest spot this chute on the floor. Welcome to the bubble N ba. All the big shots go down. It's exactly how it works. Al PJ in that fourth quarter very late in the closing seconds, each team would have a player fouled, taking the three pointer. Each team would have said player make only two free throws. We were tied at 1 21, and then we went to overtime. And over. Time is going to be our turning point brought to you by my computer career training for a better life. I'm just going to let the play the highlights role. They tell all the stories a minute five to go driving the paint. Lou Williams lays it up and draws a foul Lou Williams half a day. 33 points and possibly one more in a moment. He wasn't done. Sean 36 points off the bench for Doc Rivers Clippers again done the Clippers air trying to go up 31 in the series. Lou Williams goes for 36 past the dancing Down the rights of the lane, euro step shoots and scores off the glass Timeout, Doc Rivers, All right, look a daunting to undock down that pair. The Mavericks go back in front. But no, we're not done. Kids. Hawaiian, Leonard catches between the rings goes around to the right side fallout instead of three. Doyline, guarded by Keiji 13 12 off across over the paint. Don't look in the corner. Morris for three, buried it for the lead. Moke Morris senior Marcus Morris senior. They call a move. He knocked down a three he has played for the Knicks earlier this year, he knocks down the three the Clippers take the one point lead. It looks like the Clippers are going to go. Up three games to one Dallas inbounds in the front court. The first time they inbound in the front court. The Clippers used their foul too, given the extra session, so reload one final time for the highlight. You will now hear. 40 10 pointing 30 times, Maybe 30 times until Tuesday's Game five gets it into Dodge Systems out of half court to the top of the arc steps left three for the win.

Groundbreaking New Material 'Could Allow Artificial Intelligence to Merge With the Human Brain'
"Groundbreaking new material could allow artificial intelligence to merge with the human brain. Well, that's what Elon Musk has been working on with the stuff. This is not directly connected to that although I suppose he could use this material in his product. Scientists have discovered a groundbreaking bio synthetic material that they claim can be used to merge artificial intelligence with the human brain. Previously has been hard to use the typical stuff you would use for some sort of a cable or wire things like gold, silicon and steal. They can cause scarring when they're implanted into your mind to turn you into a Cyborg because you're not made of metal. So, unfortunate, your made a guts and skin and stuff. Good old fashioned biology data. How dare you gooey stuff the gooey stuff The meat sack. What they say that's you full of meat. Yeah. So obviously, we're outdated and we have to get upgraded. We gotta get upgraded and so in order to do that, they're going to use. A type of material we got the idea for this project because we were trying to interface rigid organic micro electrodes with the brain, but brains are made out of organic salty live materials. Those pesky brains. pesky brains it wasn't working. Well, we thought there must be a better way we started looking at organic electronic materials like conjugated polymers that were being used in non biological devices. We found chemically stable example that was sold commercially as an anti-static coating for electronic displays. This polymers known as P. Dot. Org pedo maybe it's a French philosopher by the name of bidault. Sounds appropriate or dot. Like t dot no says t dot. Back in the day ever that the that didn't last that long or did it. Did. Never. Really. was never really the choice in my circles no. T dot in order to reference the city of Toronto was never a popular choice in my circles. Was it a popular choice in your circles? No no, it's just all you do is say Toronto Toronto without the T, at the end. Yeah it's all you have to do. Anyway show Toronto Raptors because when we checked up on the game, they were up like thirty they're up like thirty. But who knows probably since we started filming this because we were like that gave is done and then probably now Brooklyn Brooklyn came all the way back I. Doubt it. Not, against those raptors. This versatile I it'll polymer was recently discovered to be capable of transforming house breaks into energy storage units due to its ability to penetrate porous materials and conduct electricity your brain, your porous gooey brain needs to be penetrated, and this material will allow that to happen. So you can be upgraded. Understand Down for that. Okay. You'RE GONNA be number one. LISTEN UP LISTEN UP Ilan. Wills going to be the first guy on on your brain implant assembly line just stick them in a chair put him through the conveyor. And upgrade that man. Meet Suck upgrade the man.

Big Tech, Antitrust, and Democracy
"I James. I'm doing. Okay. How are you? Good thanks. All Things considered I'm busy. Tell You I've complainer this on multiple guess at this point. But what's another one I feel like? Because no one is traveling or going anywhere what is usually the slowest months? August is just insane like stuff happening constantly it started off where it got very slow in March. I was walked down people don't know what to do and were nervous. I was over whelming sense of doom and the weird thing. Is Obviously, it's not that stuff has changed that much but we talked about this on the last episode people have adapted, and now they're like making up for lost I but they're just like news coming out everywhere right a no more so than in the capital. That's right. So last week last Wednesday the editor subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee in the House had a hearing with the four tuxedos Apple Google facebook and Amazon Microsoft was notable by its absence, but it was clearly a. Focus on consumer tech. In the reason I say that this was clear is not just because such. Adele wasn't there but it became pretty clear through the questioning that Tim. Cook was only they're Kinda wanted to say that they got all of them because they were not prepared to ask him questions at all. It's clear that all the work of the committee has been mostly focused on I would say first and foremost Amazon they had the most detailed stuff there they were pretty detail. About Google, they were somewhat detailed about facebook, but you could see sort of the quality of questionings really starting to come down there, and then they didn't even know what the percentages were in the APP store. You is kind of embarrassing. They would ask cook a question and let him just talk because they didn't know what to ask next wherever else interrupt because they wanted that points to make et Cetera et Cetera and I've thought that difference in the quality of questioning per company. was pretty striking. Yeah. It's interesting. The New York Times ran a tally of the questions and I thought that in itself was interesting and it looked pretty evenly spaced and then apple was dislike fifty percent of the other three frustrating in a way because obviously I've been sort of fixated on the APP store for literally since the beginning of attack relate what am I I set of articles back in two thousand thirteen was trying to understand what how is doing such a crappy job. Imagine the APP store and one of my conclusions there was there. So scarred from their near death experience in the nineties when they had to beg adobe and Microsoft to continue supporting the Max can remain viable and I wrote this is back in two thousand thirteen that they would never allow themselves to be in that position again and well. So interesting about that is the way that has manifested is that again, this is a long running things that they've really had kept productivity APPS. In particular, it's hard to make money. You can't charge upgrades is really important sort of business mile away. It's worked on other platforms white the internet which Tim Cook Pretends doesn't exist also testimony they jumped straight from brick and mortar to the APP store. There's no intervening period there where you could buy stuff on the Internet. It's funny because when you read his testimony, you don't notice until someone points out she's like Oh my word. Yeah. You just kinda skipped fifteen years of distribution. So I didn't watch it old but I did watch part of it, and the only thing that I can remember is someone was questioning him around he has complete control of which APPs and he's like I'll well, if the native APPs that's true except Web apps so think he's not to the Internet was like little buttons that you create insofar which by the way are totally handicap progressive lobster totally handicap on IOS in wipes away all their cookies and settings after a week in. Where are the interesting things about this is because apple was held captive by productivity APPs in the nineties all of their sort of onerous APP store terms in my estimation have mostly affected would be productivity APPs in your abyss situation where you get no great innovator of APPs on these platforms in part because much risk like maybe you're going to build something in apple's not gonNA prove it or there's no business model it and it just doesn't make sense to make a new sort of productivity after the most difficult in-depth after build from a physical. API's on the device or perspective and what actually has come to dominate are. All these network based APPS that are mostly API driven and what's interesting is because apple is not a social company I message notwithstanding that they kind of weren't paying attention to that and what happened was we talked about this China where we chat actually became the exact sort of dominant APP that I think the APP store was designed to limit. But because they weren't sort of paying attention, they ended up the exact same situation as a nineties is the apple as a company is much stronger than back. Then it's not even remotely comparable but the fact that we chat is more important than your phone is definitely the case you. Like Oh we trade the same well then why is it? We have a mini APP store for on purposes and no one else has allowed it like one of the most obvious examples of APPs not being treated the same and it's not true the same because we chat as more important than the IPHONE.

All your wrestler like people connected with that more than like looking good my hair being you know. What I looked like and so. I think the moral of this podcast, and why is understanding that? We all have entrepreneur scarves. If you don't have meat, YOU'RE GONNA? Have Him, but don't let those keep you from the next success. My friend, WHO's a politician like I don't care what happened that he could go and do be successful, but because he's carrying these scars, he's not and you have to be willing to get. Get rid of those or or not get rid of Mike embracing and share those things I. Look I screwed up. This is what happened, but this is what I'm doing now, and this is what I learned from it how I'm changing you know if I look back on my career as a lot of things that I'm embarrassed about things, I messed up on big time podcast on the about my biggest regrets I've. Why have regrets in my business things that I did that. I'm embarrassed about. I wish I would have done. Make looking back now. I would have consulted myself I. Do not do that, but I wouldn't have known the path beside gone down. These pass Roy's the. Things, we're right. Now I've always tried to be fair to my customers and employees have stuff I made mistakes and I sold things I. thought were really good later they weren't done like. THEM UP, proud of, but if I let the scars, keep me like. How many people would how many people's lives we touching affecting now? That wouldn't have been touched. Bracelet scars and Lake told me Look I messed up in the past and a have we all do and it's okay. But I don't want you guys to not progress because of that so hopefully, this gives you some comfort in knowing that gone through bankruptcy. That's okay. If you've messed up if you did something stupid like that's K.. Your Life is about making those mistakes and own. And if you do, it's almost like plastic surgery. That makes these scars to disappear, but they don't need to disappear like I said embrace it because that's what's going to draw people to you. and so that helps is on my mind today. If I wanted to share it, so hope that that was good guys. Begins Entrepreneur You know were risking stuff everyday risking our our our personnel risking our names money risking. Other people like you know like I. Wake up in the morning scared. We've one hundred nineteen of say like. If I screw up like how many people have the mindset down because of that like those real I understand that but. I've got a risk those things because how many pook lives because of that right and if you've gone through bankruptcy, don't let that stress you out. It's a gift. Founding Fathers Gift from God has given us the ability salute. We can risk and not lose everything. We can risk and and. It wasn't for that like again. Progress would stop if entrepreneurs weren't risking so it's not a bad thing, and if you like anyway so I just wanted to give you as as a gift, and if he is struggling, has probably. Going through being gone through bankruptcy, maybe it's not that you fail wants to make didn't work you. Both the people and the prior to working in a fire. People let them go. All the ups and downs and disappointment like is operatives. You have so many things on your shoulders. I get that and I. Hope that this message just helps release some of that pressure for some of you guys because if you don't keep risking if you don't keep trying, keep getting those scarves. Where's the world going to be where you're going to be with your family? It'd be where the people you're serving enemy They need you and It's worth the risk is worth the sacrifices worth of fears, because if you can affect those people like When you when you deliver on what you know, you have and you changed their lives. I get it makes it all worth it. Is Interesting to kind of to close this derelict where our company has come where we are today, right? Back! During my last cycle. Seven years ago when everything collapsed around me and I thought the world's coming to an end, and I was depressed and I was sad scared. All kinds of things happen Looking at now like if I didn't go through that Kulik funnels in this process never happened never met taught never met, who will never met built? This team never had the opportunity we. Wouldn't have known the things. We know to be able to execute on this. I wouldn't. Want things that we're steering clear from today are because of the mistakes happen too late. You back then and. Today someone could make catastrophic catastrophic. People's lives have been affected whereas I had a chance to to suffer those things to get those scars and smaller scale, and so I don't want to have listings now. Hopefully, if I learned my lesson started trying to do. So little caesars gifts embrace them. Share them and I don't hide from because the scars draw people to you and we all have them and.

"Abras Russell Brunson. Welcome marking secrets. Today's episode is called Entrepreneurial Scars. So. The big question is this. How we're entrepreneurs like. He didn't cheat and take on venture capital for spending money for own pocket. Away let us get our products and our services, and the things you believe in out to the world and yet still remain profitable. That is the question in this podcast. Give you the answer. My name's offer Brunson and welcome the marketing secrets. Everyone so I wanted to. Honestly, this podcast is want to hang out with the and because It's been interesting is. When somebody entrepreneurs and And recently, just as I'm working people and watching. People who had insane amounts of success at one time, and then who has happened a failure a bankruptcy. Whatever. Fill in the blank. The second time around long time they really really struggle and start looking at. Why are they struggling? Because they had this your success? It's almost like they're they have fear. An embarrassment of like I failed in the past mate and. I kept talking about this with some guys on our team is like it's almost like they've entrepreneurs scars and make an interesting. Is that US as the person with through the process and the failure and the you know audiences, ups and downs hit hard. We have the scars like these emotional scars, but I think sometimes we feel like those scars on our faces and other people can see him. But it's interesting. Is this people don't like? Those are just things that are there inside of your yourself that are. Because they're there. Because you feel like there there, you can see it. Keeps you from having success the next time because there's so much fear around these scars, these these things and as I was as I was talking about this this morning. I shared a story this Kinda ties things together a little better for you. They're not going to name names or anything, but there's a guy and he was a successful politician. Top this game like doing everything amazing. Just people loved him in. Him In that in that spot like and this is not like national politics I. Don't know anybody. National Politics I don't fall politics at all, but from Mike. It was a local person right and you saw him on the news and all sorts of seventies, IQ's damages charismatic and like everything was awesome and then. He got caught up in the site. Political scandal whatever I, and it's funny, because I don't get how politics muschamp cannot much by where like Oh, thing happening. He's no longer in there, and that someone else, and then fast for eight three or four years later I met him was interesting as I met him. It was a different situation and talking about business stuff and I was really excited. I know who this person is I. Want to meet him and talk to him, and as I talked to make, it was funny, not funny I shouldn't say that it was interesting to see lake. The scars. He'd God from this infamous thing. Were so deep that like it was struggling to progress in other parts of his life business, and all these other things because of the scars from this this thing that didn't work out right right and it. Wasn't good, but. Three years later and. Almost surprised that I knew about it, but I did but. You carry those scars in this conversation with you with you came in the way that I'd seen before confident in all sorts of things. I probably would have done the business deal with him, but because he had these these scars. We. Certainly didn't have all these things they were gone and I could feel it, and like that uncertainty me from due to deal with him and and I remember thinking after I finished calling. I can tell still carrying around the fear and the embarrassment and the shame of the single I. don't care about that thing. I couldn't care less. Move on in your life and come back because they. That person that I saw on TV. You're approach that way. I would have done this deal and the same things tune entrepreneurs like there's someone who I know. WHO's super successful who? Had A funnel blew up in the money, and then it went away, and now they're kind of struggling, and what's interesting is like I kind of know that backstories, then other person things like that, but with that person to make persons of an inmate I a Rockstar I think they're awesome at. They're amazing, but as I as I see them interact with other people I see the scars of that that this person has or keeping them from from from taking over the next thing, and it's funny, because like I don't think nine point. Nine percent of every single person in the world has any idea those scars. Are there for this person? But because he knows that they're there, because he no, he failed. He knows that things disappear and didn't work out the way it. He has a sphere, and as he's approaching neck situations struggling because of that because of the scars and I think it's interesting. That he's entrepreneur scars that we have a first off their visible. Nobody sees them like. I you know some people may be aware of, but nobody sees them except for you, and so because you are so where these things that keeps you from having the confidence success. You need to move forward and it was funny I was talking to. an entrepreneur who is about to go through bankruptcy. They're freaking out there so scared and and. And I kind of asked him why and they say you know because I don't want those scars, but they said afterwards if I give bankruptcy like what's my wife going to think I'm in my in laws and my family. Always all these things and I was like he's understand that like bankruptcy. They think about this failure for entrepreneurs like the founding fathers. This country gave us bankruptcy as a gift, so entrepreneurs like us would risk and try and move forward and roll the dice and hope for something like if it wasn't for that gift, you May. It's a gift from the founding fathers. I believe it's a gift from God like it wasn't for that thing. American succeeded a nation. Everything that's been amazing would've happened if entrepreneurs didn't have that risk if it was like, do you a banker? You go to jail to pay off all your debts. People, taking the risk out of our taking the risk, but because like worst case scenario is bankruptcy. We clear off your balance sheets. You start over like that's the worst case scenario. That's the greatest gift we have and. We hit that and we go through it, and also we have the scars I went through bankruptcy. Naples fear than youth. Next things like know that that should be a negative thing that means you try, and you attempted, and even attempted `success in went away. You've had success. I remember I was doing a deal with. This guy who super successful that he's consulting things where it's like five hundred grand a day with a minimum of of of ten sessions, so it's like happily bucks to get this guy to work with you right and a chance to hang out with him I was talking to him in talking strategy, and he's asking my story and I'd tell my story and. I'm pretty open with things. Now I realized that my scars or would actually draws people to I live I. I spent an hour on stage, talking about all my failures, because it draws people towards me and so. which is kind of maybe the point at the end of this podcast, but? I sure the my ups and downs, and as I told the whole thing. He's like Oh good I'll Mike. What do you like well, you cycle the Mike. What do you mean cyclopes like? Oh, he's like well. Entrepreneurs cycled at least once. I refuse to work with them. What is? Recycled means you build something up and then you crash. He's like. If you haven't cycle the guess what you're still, you're still read it. You're still drinking your own. Kool aid you still. Believe that you are the most amazing human on earth realize until after you've cycled the, it's not just. Are the greatest thing to walk. This planet like there's.

She said, I hope you stay in Iraq as long as you can like not ready for you to come home. I thought. A sucks in the desert that Al deserved die. Anam. I don't know. She didn't mean that just mean thing to say, because that's when you get hurt like that. You just trying to hurt somebody packed. I know that shouldn't believe that. I know that. I know that I mean, I do know that have gone to therapy was her sense about that. And she apologized and know that was hurtful. Thank apply man. When you're in a war zone, it's like that Just like took the wind out of my sales. And I I had this temptation to go into like self-pity and. And then I realized, But That's bullshit. You're a fucking field-grade officer. It's like Emma guys, and it's like it's Valentine's Day. And these guys were away from their wives and their fiancee's in their girlfriends them moms in their sisters. And so I just like fired myself up on coffee and was walking along the Euphrates river to all these little posts were the guys were. And I'd say he married fuck no sir. You gotta girlfriend? No. He had a mom Wallich book and of course several moms, her when she conver Ballantine's day, What's your number And a Are you fucking serious, Mike? Yeah. And so I just lent Mike and I dislike would set it up, and I just give them the phone and walk away. By the way, this wicked sat calls are not cheap. Those other countries urged offensive series. I figured fog it, You know what? I will say that my boss before he left, He was a colonel at the time he retired at the show. He said, Look. National Guard headquarters, pain furthest cuts of her. So use it as much as you need to for whatever reason you need to just get it out. There was a great I'm gonna make calls with the guys. And so I spent like the next three hours Jewish walk in and three hundred thousand dollars. Very expensive phone calls them the government. But like you know, it like may ruins to eight. 'Cause like the Rybakov wise in their sisters and their girlfriends and their moms than. And that like made me feel like a made a difference and made it easier. So. You're trying to fix it. Yeah. You know when and where you could make it better for somebody else. I couldn't make it better from Maine so. But yeah, that was uh, was. As a long chapter Arnold and his wife eventually divorced are on good terms now. And when Arnold retired from the military last summer, She was right there with him. Ten years later. The scars had a little bit of time to heal. I saw at the retirement you have a right, Exactly. She's a good person, You know, it's I became see me to stand up with. Exactly right. And so you laugh, laughing, she laughed Rasa from that was good. It was a good healing there because she's heard stories about you forever and I and I and I get the balanced that with the fact that I'm I'm finally opened being loved again, and I've got like the love of my life in my life. You know, my old ice-cool school girlfriend came back in my wife when it came back to LA and that's like, you know, the biggest healing imaginable. You know, I feel like in every days like better than yesterday, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that if not for the fact that you had to go and take photos of the places that your friends sons died in Iraq. And you weren't faced with constant death all the time. Had wife seen that email maybe in a different place in another space in your mind, who had been like? No. Yeah. It was a crisis of consciousness. It was like, I'm carrying something I don't need to carry, and I'm going to be honest because like I don't want to, you know, be, you know, less than honest. If don't want, I don't want to die with unconscious in. Yeah. And. And so I carried that long enough and um, and then I carried the consequences of it long enough, and I'm glad that I'm able to move past. There are a few reasons that I encourage Arnold to tell the story. I'd actually met his ex wife several years ago at Arnold's change of command ceremony. And as far as I do, they were happy army family. They were there to support him as he was promoted and left for a new command. That Arnold was gone for a couple of years, And when he retired, he moved back to Los Angeles. He had a new lady on his arm, and I'd seen the pictures, and then eventually at matter and she is a lovely woman. But I never asked Arnold what had happened even as his friend and as a fellow soldier. I didn't wanna get into that part of his life because I knew under you CMJ. Maybe it's not a thing we talk about. Maybe it's a thing that we acknowledge except and don't discuss. And that was the problem. We as soldiers and service members we train, we fight, we die next, which other We're brothers and sisters. Yet sometimes we don't know the story behind some of the most important parts of each other's lives. Because we can't ask or were shame to ask. Or we don't want someone else to feel ashamed that we asked. But we know that it happened, We hear the rumors We see the end results, but we don't know why. Yes, Sometimes would just shitty, 20-year-olds who shouldn't have gotten married in the first place. And sometimes it takes stepping on a bomb to make you face the skeletons in your closet. But we don't know, and we don't ask. So we don't tell. We keep that shit inside And it burns it burns from the inside out. And though secrets and the shame, they don't just burned the person, holding them in the Burn, everyone around them. And it creates a cycle of pain that we just continue to not talk about. And I think having Arnold tell that story, Maybe we help some one break their cycle. Maybe by putting this out in the open, the shame doesn't burn someone else, and we can break the cycle for good. Or at the very least. So one can step up and tell their story to. Thanks for listening. The baths Smith.

The juggling story was Arnold's public face. He was still in the army at the time, and he wanted to make sure that he represented his uniform and his military. Well, as many of us do. And that's what the story does. It tells that narrative about winning hearts and minds. He couldn't tell me the real story because even though he was on Terminal leave, he was still a commissioned officer in the US Army. We have a different set of rules in the military, literally, the Uniform Code of Military Justice is a rule book that dictates not only how we act on duty, but how we live our lives. And there simply things that you can't talk about last summer. Arnold retired so-called them up, And I asked him if he was ready to sit down with me again and tell me the story that really shaped him. I should probably a trim phone off ya. Uh, he hasn't been run airplane, motor, whatever. Did you ever hear the story about how I got tricked and getting engaged wells in Iraq? No. No, that's good. So before I deployed. I kind of went made my peace with a girl who who I hurt because year before Iraq, Afghanistan, app and rent, And I went to operation bright in Egypt, which is a hop, skip it, a jump away from Afghanistan. I broke it off with her. Because I was very, very convinced that I wasn't coming home And I didn't want that on my conscience. And then a year later arrack happens, And I went to apologize to her for what had happened. And, um. They wouldn't let anybody Come see us while we are getting ready to deploy in Lessner family husbands, wives, fathers, whatever. And she wasn't unless she's a fiancee. So she bought herself, a fake engagement ring told the unit. We were engaged and they letter come before bragged CMI. Well, now she's talking to wives and girlfriends in the family readiness group, and all of a sudden she is Sergeant transfer yacht, say. And. And we gotta run with the lie. Yeah, We have. Were you gotta run with it? Because fucking now it goes up to command that, Hey, Sergeant trans engaged. Even though when we got to brag, I said all my soldiers because I was in EA-6 I said, Hey, we go back on leave. Nobody fucking comeback married or engaged or pregnant. Right. And they would come back and I am fucking engaged. Now, nobody knew that it was ally new because we are looking at like tried to get seperation, pay hit Hall hedged at like getting married. So we're like, Well, that's going to happen. We're just fucking You get Mary, get separation, pay. And then you're defrauding the government. We didn't do that. Yeah. We're venture Levant up, not getting married because after I came home from Iraq, everything broke down. I mean, that was. I lived alive for a year reign with this woman. Mm. And military relationships in general are not always on the most stable ground when you're off fighting a war and that relationship was based on a fucking lie. Marin. But. Literally until this moment, I have not told anybody that I was gonna say that's a hell of a set up man in you were I could tell you were opening up a lot of stuff. I who cause. Right. Who would I have told that to good and fucking tell it to my platoon sergeant or my commander in Right? And at that up until this point, there's been no reason to ever tell anybody that. Yeah. That's the shit that happens. Yeah. But we don't talk about We can't talk about it. Yeah. And and when you left last time, the story told about the juggling with the soccer balls in saving the kids from from the the explosives. Yeah, It's great for us P A owes to get out to the world, to tell that story. But we've heard that story in different in rations thousands of times, but will we did here? What's what you told us when the Mike's went off? How that really affected you? And one of the reasons, Of course we can talk about it before was because you're still in the army. Yeah. Yeah. So I would like us if you are okay with it to you to tell that story. Yeah, that's a hell of a set up now nights Like he I just told my story of until my buddy You can tell years now with this was an intentional admitted, do it like that? I mean, I I mention, You know, when we went through this before I had gone out of the army's a captain, um, in two thousand and I moved to Portland, Oregon. And I was working as that was dot com hay day. Uh, and I was working for a PR agency And then an advertising agency, And then. And then nine eleven happened And you now was like the World broke and was like, wait a minute. Why am I not in uniform anymore? But during the time that I was out of the army, I had a you know, a, you know, you'd call it an indiscretion me call it an affair on his short-lived, But it was, uh, it was a mistake and I and and I concealed on and I and I held onto that for a long time. And, you know, I thought that was that was cool Nellis Fine. I'm gonna never concede. Never confi done. Uh, amid Nothing deny everything The Hurry. Now the reason Arnold couldn't talk about this before was because under the Uniform Code of Military Justice or you CMJ adultery is a punishable crime, not the act of adultery itself. But under Article one 34 or the general Article conduct that brings discredit to the military is punishable by UC see, MJ. And adultery is such conduct to be exact. There are three elements that have to be met for the crime of adultery under you CMJ. First a soldier must have had sexual intercourse. Of some one kind of a know da thing II, The soldier or their sexual partner was married to someone else at the time. And third, that under the circumstances, the conduct of the soldier was to the prejudice of good order and discipline or would bring discredit upon the armed forces. And you CMJ is a federal law. It's the boogeyman of all service members. Cernik as I am home over the Christmas holiday. And the soccer thing happened already a anger. Yeah, that it already happened side sort of comeback with some interesting experiences that I've been on like a couple of patrols a day for a month. Them. And so I came home and it was the Christmas holiday. I was in Salem, Oregon, and this gal that I had, you know, years previously had a short relationship with, um, had invited my wife and I to a Christmas party. And I saw the email. And, uh, my ex wife now I'll looked or my shouldering said, Did you ever fuck her? And, um.

I do it all over again because man, What a ride. They just shot a barrage of small-arms firing RPGs into the air. I heard the smarmy hit my side of the cockpit first. Now looked over at the pilot in command a matter of I can swear in your podcasts or not, but I use good army language, You know? And said, Hey, we've been having head.

I earned this wheelchair and I'm going to run you over with I have to. As much as we all hated taking orders while we are in the military. So many veterans leave the service and ironically feel like we don't have a mission anymore. We don't feel like we have someone telling us what we need to do. And the reality is it's not just veterans. Everyone wants to feel like they have a reason for being here. But the rigidity of a life in uniform makes it harder for Vets when we hang up our boots to feel that emptiness of not having an as myth to follow. But I don't think service ends one civilian life begins again. It's just different. Now that service may take on a new form, you might become a teacher or a doctor, or God forbid, even a comedian. But today, I'm talking to someone who's devoted their post-military life to fighting for vets as a legislator. Some of you might already know the story of Senator Tammy Duckworth. She set out to be a combat pilot deployed to Iraq months into her deployment. She was shot down, took an RPG to the cockpit of her Blackhawk lost both her legs, nearly lost an arm. She's experienced pain, just like so many vets have and she has first hand knowledge of what we call the suck and how to embrace it. And when we were out there in the San in the desert, Joe the saying was owned the suck. It sucks to be here, but own at it's yours and on it and be the master of it. This is battle scars, and I'm Tom. A Serb in the US Army deployed to Iraq. It took a sniper's bullet to the back of my head lie fourth day in country. It's been over a decade since at gunfight have told that story hundreds of times. They're still things about my life. It combat. I haven't shared with anyone. And in this show I talk to other veterans of our recent wars and may be put into words. Some of those things that we never said about those experiences. Good morning, The Morning center. How are you? I'm good. Thank you, hurry. I'm Fantastic. Thank you so much for taking the time And and coming on the show. Oh, it's my pleasure. I wanted start by telling you I went to the VA the other day as a hostage hurt myself. Mind My doctor low Lucy been seeing for years He he's a fan of the show fan of the podcast. And he said, I liked the showed you have coming on And I said, Well, I'm interviewing Center Duckworth and he says the Blackhawk pilot that lost her legs. I said, Yeah. And here's what are you in here? Four today I hurt my knee running And he said, How do you feel about yourself Rambo Like I feel great. So I have my doctors looking forward to hearing this talk. Oh, all right. Well, what we better And speaking of the VA, you've done a ton of work trying to help those of us who come back and and need assistance from the VA and you and I both know more than most people, The wounded veteran, a very difficult position. Because w- as veterans combat veterans, especially, we come back and we don't want to be treated differently. But we do get put in these positions where we need help from the VA we are we are wounded. But we don't ask for help. I know personally as a Purple Heart recipient and wounded soldier when I came home, I did not ask for help. And I'd like to hear what you think about out, how weak We can help fix that. That believed by some of us that with a We shouldn't be the wants asking for help. 'cause I know you've done so much work with VA. Right. And I still go to VA from my house, gets my primary health guy, Half my health care provided to me by the taxpayers as a senator with my health insurance plan. But I actually turn out over to the. Dan, I go to VA, is it I I feel so strongly about supporting and enhancing be and making sure that I have the same experience as my fellow vats, but to your question, look, the very same things that make our warriors. The greatest warriors. If any military on the face of the earth is the same thing that separates us when we come home, Right? Our guys a tough them know how many times have. Have you talked about being mentally tough and physically strong as a soldier? How many times you know have have you in in your military career ignored the physical discomforts because that's what you have to do to do your job and to keep yourself in your buddies alive in those are all things that are admirable and it's what makes you tough. But then when a Warriors come home, Dosari same qualities are the ones that actually prevent them from receiving the care that they need their tooth Popular tee-shirts it that the lot of the guys war in the MPT Ward A me included a one was various different X rays of either their amputated. Limbs or their crush bones in it said, walk at off That shirt, You know they they would like take the X ray of this femur that has in about twenty five different pieces and held together by pins. And it said, walk at off another among the MP. Cheese was the at the black night for Monty Python It says, Come on back here. It's just a flesh wound. And all four limbs are missing relief. Food. Yeah You know, and and that's the way it was, But but my my own doctor years later I, you know, we became franchisees that, you know you are a really tough patient to take care of Because every time I asked you everything was okay, he was like, guests are. I'm great, sir. Let me out of when it can I get out of this hospital bed and go back to flying my Blackhawk and he's like, and you had no legs than you would never tell me the truth about how much it You were comments, pain. You were really AM bats. This shift We have to help our veterans may admitting the pain at admitting the help that you need, or even a long somebody to recognize and help you recognize the help that you need. It's on a sign of weakness. It's actually a sign of strength so that you can actually get better and then returned to being that warrior that you've always ban. But but everything that we did in the military that helped us Wicksell are the same things that end up hindering us as patience, right? Do you think that gallows humor that you had and still have I've seen other T-shirts, and then you have regarding. Being an amputee that dark humor you have might help transition us better into you know, these civilian lives were were life has changed. I mean, I personally became a stand-up comedian after I left the military because that was my way of dealing with the friends that I've lost, the injuries I receive in combat. And clearly you and the other folks in the ward use that as a mechanism to deal with it as well. Yeah, It's just a different way of owning the saw. Beg gallows humour wastes just a way for us to be strong. Even the sitting there in a hospital bed hooked up to machines and I-it's and everything assists away to show us. Now I owe the situation. I'm in charge of this And I'm gonna laugh at this and you're not gonna sit. He'll Cady me. I always said that look adult hitting in my wheelchair I earned this will chair. And I'm going to run you over with. I have two. Can
