Vincent Jackson, Former NFL Wide Receiver, Found Dead in Hotel Room
"All know Vincent Jackson former Tampa Bay Buccaneer was found dead in his apartment earlier was it it was last week. I was it last week. Yeah. Yes, it was last week and you know his family members want answers and they've actually donated his brain for a CT now they are doing this because there were things off. His I don't know mannerisms his behavior that kind of led up to this very very tragic ending for him that have people kind of scratching their heads going. This isn't normal. This isn't right. So there's got to be something here. When it comes to CTE. Yeah. So if you don't know who it's in Jackson is he was a wide receiver for the Chargers and the Buccaneers and he was thirty-eight years old took out in his way too young what really sucks about like there were just starting to get details about how he was found and everything. So apparently housekeeping came into the room. He was in a hotel in Florida and they he was slouched over on the couch. So they thought he was sleeping so they left the room and then they you know, they called in a welfare to his family called off their check cuz they hadn't heard from him for like a month. Well, I thought it was only two or three days ago. There was like a stretch where they had he was just kind of doing his own thing and they were concerned because so initially the story was at home. It was a an extended period of time and then the two were two to three days thing that you're talking about is they had talked to him and they hadn't heard from him and they were like, yeah everything seems okay clearly. It wasn't so this ESPN app states that at first they entered the room they assumed he was sleeping so they left the room and then they entered the room again later on and he hadn't moved from his spot. And so that's when they called 911 right? There are no signs of trauma injury. I mean this guy had family and kids. Oh, yeah, and that's why people know why is he staying in an extended States? Very bizarre and that's just kind of the things with CTE is that it just completely disrupts your brain patterns and just any sort of your brains deformed at that point, you know, you're you're doing things you're maybe saying things you're acting certain ways where people are like, whoa, what is going on with you, you know, and it's tremendously sad and at what point what's the solution? I mean, you know the NFL Constantly working on ways to make the game safer and taking care of their players, whether it's you know through the helmets or even like the pads or whatever go down the list of things of the technology of what their actual shooting up in to help combat that but clearly it's not working.

Covid long-haulers turn to Seattle rehab clinic
"The corona virus arrived in the seattle area about a year ago. Some who got cova early on are still suffering. The people who still feel the effects of the disease months after their initial diagnosis are called long. Haulers reporter eilly show. Neil has more now on wear long haulers in the seattle area are turning to for care. Donna lawson is forty seven years old. I met her in the backyard of the house. She shares with her husband and teenage daughter in west seattle. I'm a designer artist. In a mother lawson got code back in march at the very beginning of the pandemic at first it seemed to be a mild case. But then things got worse in. May she was hospitalized for three days with low blood oxygen and when she got home she didn't get better. My legs feel like jello. All the time very very weak on really bad days and bad times. I'm trudging through. Concrete is what it feels like or like their cinderblocks literally on my feet or magnets pulling me to the ground. los and says she can't concentrate a remember things. She's tired all the time and no longer has the energy to make art or volunteer at her daughter's school. She says on a good day she's eighty percent of her old self for a few hours other days. She can't get out of bed. That gets me really choked up. Who knows if. I'll be myself again. I'm usually a pretty confident person. I really love helping people. And i love spreading joy. It's really hard to do that when you don't feel joy about ten percent of people who get covid still have at least one symptom two months after their diagnosis more women than men suffer from. What's being called locking cova. They have a broad range of symptoms from shortness of breath to trouble sleeping or concentrating to depression or anxiety. Lawson was never able to get a cova test because there weren't many available at the beginning of the pandemic so she says throughout her illness. Some doctors haven't believed that her symptoms are due to long cove. It when you have medical professionals poo poo what you're saying you can't help but wonder if you're crazy person. If the reason lawson and other long haulers have struggled to find care is that doctors don't fully understand long cove it yet when they run standard tests on long haulers most results come back negative exact mechanisms yet some of the basic science still pending and that will be helpful for guiding treatments. Aaron bananas a rehab physician at the university of washington's harborview medical center. He says researchers are still trying to figure out exactly what causes long cova loose suspicion that this may be a more of an immunologic response in patients or some of the micro-vascular pox insults that are occurring. Maybe causing some of the brain fog and other words long hunters immune systems could still be an overdrive or maybe their brains are still suffering from being deprived of oxygen pandemic worked with covid patients after they were released from the icu. But over time it became clear. It's not just the patients that have been hospitalized in who are very sick that are having long term symptoms and we're seeing this even in patients who may have been sick at home but now three months later are still struggling. That's why been now started a clinic. At harborview specifically serves cova. Long haulers. It's one of many such clinics that are popping up across the country to clinic. I if you want clinic part. Medical office part gym with treadmills parallel bars and other equipment to help patients build back strength and the ability to walk but now seems to know everyone here here he is. I've been good. How are you handsome every day. Now and his team are experts in rehab medicine. They help patients with their recovery and coordinate their complex care but now says his goal is to help his patients get back to whatever they were doing before they got sick. Got a law in our critical illness. Survivors that yeah. Their their heart is still beating and their breathing but everything that they valued and was meaningful in their life is now lost so i think our hope is that just wanna make sure were addressing getting or covert patients as much life as boston so far. This is the only clinic like this in the region. So it serves patients from oregon alaskan idaho as well as washington but now says at first. There was only a trickle of patients. But now the clinic gets forty new patients every week.
A new way to invest that doesn't involve buying stocks hyped on Reddit
"So lately. All the buzz his been about well. Bitcoin and other crypto currencies. Bitcoin recently fifty thousand dollars a bitcoin and people who've been buying the stocks that are being touted on read it and it was all that mess that went on with Game stop and other stocks. That went up like rockets and then like rockets can do crash back down to earth and my son is in this investing group at school. He's fifteen and they're investing not real money but they all have their stock portfolios and wanna read you to texts from him from this morning. They're really funny. Is said in the last nineteen minutes. My stock portfolio dropped by six sixty. Then he texts me eight minutes later and these eh. then it went up by eight hundred dollars. And i the other night. When he was trapped. In the car with me i started boring. I'm trying to talk about how my philosophies investing work very differently than matt worrying about day trading and options and all. That was going to happen up to the minute and if you thought a father could be more irrelevant to sun then i was that minute you you couldn't be no interest in anything i was saying because to him. This is sport and that's what investing has been of late call. Investing is really speculating. And that's not my thing. I mean i'm the dulles person alive and i invest in a dull way because the ideas i wanna make money over time and so. That's why i get excited about really accessible. Investing opportunities for small investors did allow you to build reasonable wealth over time instead of trying to get the quick score and my son's a sharp kid hill. Eventually get it and will not that. It matters what you're buying and selling minute by minute. And by the way he's asked me if he can have a real investing account. Will you know you'd have to have what's called a custodial said yeah yeah where where you were the pretend owner but i'm the one doing the investing and i don't know what to do you know. Give them a couple of hundred dollars and let him play. And maybe learn the value of term investing. But you know it fifteen. What is long term. That's like three days from now. It's hard to explain a concept where you build wealth over time well do you know goldman sachs is goldman sachs is for rich people like crista. People was massive amounts of money. Who work with a personal financial manager. Who handles their money for them. That's right krista. That's what you do with your millions. Yeah no no okay. So there are. There are very wealthy people. That's what they do and goldman sachs has been doing some stuff lately that doesn't fit at all their historical pedigree They're the ones that issue the apple card for people that have the apple credit card and they have Savings accounts and all that kind of thing with no minimums will now. They've launched some cold. Marcus invest which allows people to use goldman sachs incredible financial analysis investment analysis till build robo investing portfolios for you using very low cost funds. And this is something you would ask somebody. Ten years ago if goldman sachs would ever being looking to provide investments an investment advice to everyday ordinary. People they'd say you're crazy. That will never happen. Well they're not doing what fidelity investments does where a dollar is enough to open an account many cases schwab one hundred dollars. They're doing what vanguard. Does you have to have a thousand bucks to open an account but once you have that thousand you can get advice that is tailored to your personal financial goals and outlook. The money can be and a retirement account or an investment account use what are known is exchange traded funds. Etf's and typically for the advice and the investments you pay roughly a third of a percent per year for them to handle your money. So i guess ten thousand dollars be thirty five bucks a year. Is that right. I think that's about right. three dollars. Fifty cents on a thousand. I think that's right so this is an opportunity for you to do. Investing through the nation's big boys big money houses and their whole business plan is pretty similar to what you'd have if you were with Betterment or wealth front that really started this whole investing idea. And i'm sure neither of them are very happy the goldman sachs through. Marcus invest is playing in their ballpark.

And so i would definitely look into the facts of each case and see if there's something there because i do think that there will be a window open for individuals to file claims.

I is i to in colorado. But has milwaukee doing these days. Gosh we are about to get our first real dumping of snow at least over your recording. This by the time at arizona probably have had tons. But i'm actually gonna go get gas for the snowblower the last place. I really got to travel and speak at. Wasn't milwaukee in january flew in and out. It was gonna be a one day speaking thing in you know anybody. I should have known better having in law that those up all my family from the midwest. North chicago and ohio january. You're not getting in and out of anywhere in the midwest without some type of delay in my you know my arrogance of that being about a three day delay. They kept cancelling how to drive from milwaukee to chicago and it was a whole thing but i got to see the lake. Cresting waves as the snow is blowing in milwaukee so it was very interesting. Clear that you can get out of chicago easier than milwaukee usually milwaukee. Is you know. We're kind of like canada south with that. As long as they can. Keep the runway clear enough to get a plane on it though. Fly planes out. But if it gets bad enough i know they. They've shut down a few times. Speak that i mean you you were you were you know. Have built a name and a brand by traveling and speaking. Do you miss the travel aspect this year of getting out there and being on stage like you have no idea of feeling i have an idea. Trust me on the wall. I went into twenty twenty expecting all this international travel. I just changed jobs. And and it was part of that job. Was supposed to include a lotta travel to international conferences and even our our locations and yet none of that happened i did. Rsa and then besides tampa was scheduled to go to singapore and sydney in the two weeks following and in between those two. They shut down all travel. And yeah i've been. I've been here in my home office which i feel guilty saying suffering is pretty pretty awesome office but yeah i i cannot wait to get back on a plane.

And i'll get you a signed copy of the lock picking guy so i try to get them to learn about lock. Picking it sucks not being out there and kind of seeing the whole community. What drove to obviously not not a wallflower. You wanna get out there and talk. What drove you to kind of get on stage. It's it's not something that's always a done by folks in our industry where where they can somewhat be a little bit more reserved. Yes so it's kind of funny. Because i've been speaking at conferences since two thousand fourteen and but i never really got was ever really serious about it like i do one here and there and it was a lot of it was because i was working in a consulting role. And it's good for you know when you're consultant especially it's good for your organization to have people out there speaking and i found right away the first time i did it like that was actually a lot of fun But then the more. I did it the more i started to realize like i just i i really you know. I've got a lot of ideas. I want to share and i love doing this because i've always been believe it or not. You know you you talk about me being out there and it's like i was very socially awkward like i was the person i go to a conference and be completely alone in a sea of thirty thousand people at defcon. Right which i mean. That's not unusual. People do that all the time but even smaller conferences like i was just never very good at starting conversations with people and so when i would speak it was a whole different world because you'll people would recognize you from having been on stage in an it. Stop you in the hall to ask you questions about what you talked about or whatever or just to thank you and it was such a great icebreaker because now i could get in. I could have conversations with people in the hallway about all this stuff that we were passionate about and we could. We could share ideas. And that's what conferences are all about to

"Like it Chris land all over again at least I knew what was going on and I didn't like it and this. But I didn't know what was going on. It's funny because this movie I was positive, I'd seen it when I put it on the list of movies for us to cover I was like Oh yeah. Of course, three days of the condor. It's great. I've seen it, and then I, went through my archives of where I look at you know what I thought of movies in the past I, keep it on the computer and I realized I'd never seen it and I think I was just confused because maybe the spy game came out with. You Know Robert Redford and Brad Pitt and a lot of the reviews talked about connections to three days of the condor and I thought I need to see that movie and apparently in my mind I did see it but I never actually physically saw it. So diving into it this time I was very excited because it's like a seventies gem that I just for some reason had bypassed and I thought it was a real like just like who'd really to watch you bypassed it or spy passed it. Oh good. Comedy Gold on sub space transmissions like this listeners. Look. Forward. Carrying that branding right over despite hearts. pocus down now go over there and listen to them instead because it's clearly better. But. I was like really just riveted throughout this. I am really finding myself drawn to these mundane spy world's kind of like get crystal where everything's just a little bit. You know working class kind of look to it a little bit ramshackle but there's all this intrigue going on underneath and I loved all of the cat and mouse stuff throat this movie so. Yeah. I was really down with it, but it does not depend on like Michael Bay editing. It's like longshot shots it's slowly moving I. There's even just moments where he recreates the crime scene using like a pen and notepad, which they would just dare to do it in a lot of these contemporary spy genre films like he could you imagine that Ryan, Reynolds movie. Doing, something like with a notepad for like four minutes. What deadpool That's breaking the fourth wall right there. I was at an underground is underground six. I could want finish that one. I was confused with. Six underground or I was also thinking of safe. House. The other Ryan, Reynolds that spy film I, I again, another one that I skipped. Yeah good choice but. No I agree like I like kind of the Lo fi approach to spycraft. We're seeing in some of these older spy movies obviously, they didn't really have an option. Because honestly like writing on pen and paper ages better than some of the computer stuff in these movies. Also, ages well. Fight scenes that are actually well choreographed in which you actually know what the mailman is doing. There's actually a kind of a story line going on as it escalates and escalates and they grab like other weapons to other I was not confused for a single moment watching his nineteen seventies movie, which I would not call it an action movie but this action sequence within it I I was just kind of sucked into everything that was going on there, and that's the trick isn't it? You can actually see the fight scene unlike hypocrites file. When Time. That's cold. Scott pushed down the stairs. It's like who to grow the. Fire. I really enjoyed that fight as well in. A apartment or whatever I liked it..

"Wills meeting with the president does lead CJ to her brilliant revelation that she can create a coalition within the United Nations just out of the NATO powers. And it's a significant enough group of countries that she can really craft a statement out of that. Hey, we've gotten NATO behind us. That's what actually the president had called will in for will says he wanted thoughts on NATO's role in peacekeeping. And I liked that he did not continue and say, and that's because my dad used to be right supreme commander allied forces. I guess as he said that a lot as a kid in grade school. So he doesn't need to say. Now, he's a fully-fledged adult as Greg described him. That's right. So he doesn't have to say it anymore. But it's just a nice little nod to those of us who know he's got this long-term connection to NATO. And so, of course, the president would want to have his advice when it comes to what they might do. Absolutely. He's absolutely crucial offscreen. He's supreme commander of offscreen advice giving. And in advertently revelation fuelling also, yes, John Spencer's performance. Again. I thought was fantastic watching Leo just having difficulty swallowing from his throat being so dry after he comes out, I've known surgeries just it's painful to watch. I mean, there's really affecting when the president says I'm gonna need that list of names. And he says only one he he got the crack. Parched. Quality to his voices nicely done nicely done. And then I actually made a sound. I went ball when the president got teary and choked up when he said go spend some time with my outgoing chief of staff. And we got work to do Martin sheen brings tears into his eyes and voice gets a little thicker in those lines. And I thought that was nice work as well. I agree. I was very taken with this hair. In this episode for some reason who's here president Bartlett's Martin's. He's just got a real like presidential wedge on his head. Is that a compliment to call someone's hair a witch? I think wedge salad is just it's just a beautiful thing to behold, it looks like takes a lot of time. No, okay. I don't know. I mean, it only as a compliment, I think you'll find this. As a wedge issue. Perhaps. So I think there's a good tweet something about this whole Romain lettuce recall being a wedge issue. I'm trying it right now here to eat. I think it's not going to be a popular one. I think people are gonna do. Well. Later in the season. There are some questionable hair things happening. Bradley, Whitford hair gets real crazy. The season doesn't. Yep. Oh, looking forward to that. I will have a lot to say. Anything else in this episode of the west wing? I just want to talk about musk melon more. Yeah. Toby mentions to the president that there are two hundred ninety million people who come first before. Leo, the population of the US at the time. Now, there are three hundred twenty five million more. We've got thirty five million more people than Toby described. That's a lot of tax credits. Taxes credit? Yes, you're saying they're all children. Well, I think they all started as yeah. Who can say I can I haven't seen it myself. Wow. You need the actual empirical evidence. All right after all of the back and forth between Josh and Toby in. What seemed to me what I perceived as this kind of power struggle between the two of them. There's this detente. Toby says I wanted to run it off something anything a decision making tree and Josh still bristling still prickly says view at the top, no. With you at the top me Talil gets back trying to tell the president would give you the job turns out, we didn't get there. But that conversation in the corridor of the hospital Toby was hoping to get the president to give the job to Josh. But Leo speaks in has just the one one name. And that's how it goes. I like that that was Toby's approach and makes sense. I think so too. I like the way it sets things up the idea that they both thought Josh would be the person who should fill in. And that both of them are rebuffed. That's it for another episode of the west wing weekly. Thanks for listening. Thanks for listening this whole year. This is our last episode of twenty eighteen. Yeah. Wow. Now that you're on the books. Yeah. We'll be back on January nineth with episodes six..

"I thought that this whole episode also had kind of funny strain of big block of cheese day in terms of the congress people who come in talk to Toby. And Josh, you know, it's pork instead of cheese, but they're asking for crazy things in order as either support, and it really does feel like these crackpots very much, so yeah. One of them wants to institute a monarch game institutes monarchy. I'm sure Turkmenbashi would be all for it's sure and the other would like to abolish the institution of marriage altogether. Yeah. I love the moment. When they finally tell the president that this is what they're up against Martin sheen has great nod after they described the ways that they've screwed up for a Bill to appoint an American monarch or a ban on the institution of marriage except in casinos and department stores and Martin sheen. Does this thing where he fr? Rounds and nods at the same time. I would encourage everyone at this moment to try frowning and nodding it really has a lot to there's a live juice to that a nation. It's a Robert deniro kind of. True. And he does there. He's a really big frowning, non he's like, okay. It's just a great moment to characters. They fill are slightly short changed in this episode. Ed, Larry, well, that's in every episode. You can never have enough had Larry as far as I'm concerned, Margaret, I would have liked to see what Margaret was going through with Leo. Yeah. Bedridden she there couple of quick shots verb. But we don't really get the kind of concern on the level that you know, Margaret would have for Leo, right? Would like to have seen a little bit about how this is all affecting her in a John wells in kind of way, you wanna see her not stopping for red lights barreling down. That's exactly right. Yeah. And I'd like to see your car flip on the way to the White House right itself, and then screech into the parking lot and Donna returns, and she seems to be completely free of trauma haven't gone through an incredibly huge event. What's the time element? Here. Do you know few weeks a few weeks? Well, it's been since season five so really, you know, many many months fair enough. She comes back in Josh wheels. Her, you know, towards her desk, not actually to her desperate and just funner there. Yeah. Oh, and here's a pen get to work. Yeah. Yet chivalry. Yeah. The Penn thing reminded me of say anything. Art, and she gave me. There you go. Yeah. It's exactly what. Donna got. Yeah. Yep. I think it's Joshua's maybe kind of way of trying to give her his heart or something. John cusack. Once blocked me on Twitter. And now follows me The ball. you. Is you journey we've taken. Yeah. I'm sure he just doesn't connect me to the person he wants blocked. Well, I'm glad to hear that. Because that did distress me when you were having a one way spat. I'm a big fan of say anything. I'm a big fan of saying anything. What people don't know as you went to his house stood outside the window busting gave real. That's how I got him to follow him back worked. I wanted to highlight the moment when the president Kerns to abbey and confesses that he thinks that he's the one who caused Leo's heart attack fired him. Yeah. I like that she Intuit's. That's what's on his mind. Although obviously, she doesn't know that he is in fact, fired him or ask for his resignation. She knows that that what's plaguing. What's on his mind is the idea that he's brought him into this pressure cooker of job has contributed to his health problems. Yeah. I think my favorite moment of of everything going on with the president. And Leo, you know, as he's wracked with guilt about all of this stuff. And he's trying to come to terms with what to do and wanted to replace Leo and not being able to make that call is that moment when happy says you've got to keep him out of that job. He'll kill himself for you. If you don't. Yeah. And instead he's side seal Kelsey Johnston. That's right..

"The Turkmen people gnaw on bones like dogs to strengthen their teeth. He's nuts. I love about this is that is all true. What that is. All real is a really that's fantastic. The things made me laugh. It didn't occur to me even to Google and see I thought it was again, some sort of maybe casual racism, I don't name check him in the episode, but Turkmenistan's first ever president was a guy named supper Mora Niyajov. And here are some of the things that he brought about one he banned the use of lip synching at public concerts in two thousand five because of the negative effect on the development of musical arts. Where does he stand on tick tock? Yeah. That would probably be. Yeah. It would be blocked. The here a couple of dog related things that I really like one he banished dogs from the capital because of their unappealing odor. But the thing that Josh says about the people gnawing on bones like dogs to strengthen their teeth. That's true. Is that I watched young dogs when I was young they were given bones to gnaw on to strengthen their teeth. Those of you whose teeth of fallen out did not chew on bones. Wow. So that was his advice was that the Turkmen people should choose on bones to strengthen their teeth. I cannot believe this all real. It's all real. I mean, it just it's really a thrill to read about the stuff. He outlawed opera and ballet and circuses for being unturned like in two thousand four he said that mentioned no longer have long hair or beards. And then just some of my favorite ones. He abolished the Turkmen word for bread and replaced it with Gurbansoltan his mother's name. Hats off to this guy. Because if you can't have fun with being a monarch or ruler. I mean, then it's wasted on you. These are the kind these are the kind of things I would do I think that's awesome. He renamed the month of April after his mom. His mom whose name was April. Call me over the I call that country Turk people's NAN. Yeah. He liked to be known as Turkmenbashi father of the Turkmen. Yeah. That's kinda sweet hats off to you, by the way, free. Looking this stuff up? I had I think there's a nanosecond where he thought is any of this even be remotely accurate, and then I'm not gonna waste a Google search on that. It's real. I mean, the thing about the holiday for the melon is real melon day. Melody melody. Yeah, we missed it this year. We should celebrate. Next year. August eleventh two thousand nineteen is melody it's the festival devoted to the musk melon. I smell a t shirt. Might the our final piece of merge. Melon day. Also, it is the musk melon. So if you are smelling the t shirt, it might be I must Mel addresses smelling. Well, now, I want to create a sitcom set in Turkmenistan under this guy's rule. Yeah. Just hats off to ally for this tidbit. It's fantastic. I love it. I mean, if you would ignore the sort of repressive dictatorial rule part of Turkmenbashi. Yeah. And you should yes.

"You know, I might chalk it up to some idea that they have been working together. So long that they assume some level of telepathy on the other person's partner like, you know, that this is what we have to do. It should go without saying perhaps. Yeah. Do you know what the current child tax credit is? No, I believe it's two thousand dollars per child up from thousand I think the Trump tax plan in two thousand seventeen brought it up from thousand. Two two thousand and is there a cap on the number of children, I won't get there. So I haven't really looked into I topped out at two, and that's all she wrote. Folks. Do you feel slighted that you get nothing for Watson? No Watson is not much out people. Sometimes call me and call Lindsey his parents, you know, they're like, okay. Go to you know. Oh, yeah. You wanna see your dad, whatever it doesn't feel right to me. Someone asked me the other day. Are you his owners or his parents and all it's like neither? But you don't expect the government to subsidize his care. No come on fair enough on the IRS website. It says credit as much as worth it's two thousand dollars per it doesn't say that. There's a cap on it as apparent let me just warn you kids over the course of their lifetime over over. The course of the first seven years cost more than two thousand a year. This isn't as I can see if you're trying to work in angle, forget it. You're not going to turn a profit on this. Okay. So they had these screw ups screws the screws up, and it's a little bit embarrassing, but it's private and then they have won a big one. That's very public and really in front of the worst person that could possibly be speaker happily till becomes in. Josh calls him on the phone, and they've got absolutely opposite messages a four hundred dollar tax credit. Yes, sure. I'll put him on speakerphone. Hello. The president's going postal over this tax credit practically at appeal to seal and now may be able to talk him down. But you're going to have to move on peacekeeping. Now, josh. Toby? Hi, it's pretty sad. It's a funny moment. And I like how it's played even if it's a tough by again, I did like the moment. Yeah. When half lease like, okay, put him through turns on the speakerphone. You just get to watch Richard shifts face. As Josh dot speaking. Yeah. Steven Culp is funny in the scenes. Yeah. When I said that that I think this episode felt a little unfair to Josh one of the moments that especially felt out of character for me was when he said to the president, you know, if you want someone working out of Leo's office just shout, if you need anything he does it in a way that is sort of inelegant, and in the moment, it feels like a betrayal or something in the president reacts as if it is and to me Josh is the last person who would ever do that we've established this about him. You know, he doesn't wanna be the guy. He wants to be the guy the guy counts on I agree. Although I saw Josh the way you do even in that moment and felt that it was a particularly sensitive run nerve, president Bartlett that was seeing it otherwise, I didn't take it as an actual betrayal. I saw president Bartlett's is that he was a little bit salty about it. Right. But I took Josh at face value. The the way you would interpret him as just saying if you didn't eat anything, right? It's not. Grab rather than trying to jump into a power vacuum. Right. Yeah. Okay. I think it could've played that way too. But for me, whatever it ended up not bristled at that. But then, you know, Toby takes a run at this at a similar kind of conversation. And he does it in a much more elegant way, I think I care about his surgery, but we're fumbling the tax Bill. Our diplomatic strategy is a is a game of telephone. And these are the things were spending time on. Yeah. He makes it very good point. But there's also there's a dark and intense moment in that scene when president part listening, look this was out of the blue this..

"We don't see any of it. But I'm just thrilled to have been mentioned to have been important senior. Yeah. But it could have been interesting if that was sort of feeling about whether will might have been the right person for the job would have been interesting to see that conversation. And maybe for us to surmise. Why? Oh, he's not the great pick. And maybe, you know, could have happened with other people as well would have been interesting to see the process and Bartlett's thought process, and why Leo's lobbying for CJ, and I would have liked to see that. Yeah. Missed opportunity. I think. Yeah. Greg Brock the reporter. He knows that. There's something interesting about that conversation. I'm hearing. We'll Bailey then you should have your hearing checked at a one on one with the president yesterday. First time all year knows the military which Josh and Toby donors. It's Leo's second. Josh. And Toby know every inch of the government military industrial animal men are lots of folks can manage down wheels. Proven he can manage up a fully-fledged adult. Thanks, greg. Let's break down some of the mishaps between Toby? And Josh because there are a lot of them in this episode in round one of sort of this cringing cycle. Toby says look we're in the middle of an intersection without a traffic cop. If we want we can run things through me. And Josh immediately thinks it's about ego talking about a process, and if we want to sacrifice, livestock and your name the great line. But it feels like it sets things off that there's going to be a little bit of a power showdown between Josh and Toby and CJ tries to clear the air. She says how about UB the communications director UB the deputy chief of staff. It's great. But again, it's one of many occasions where CJ has the level headed decision, and that's fine. But it's just like so many points for CJ so many points against Josh all within one episode. It feels like it's just cramming to try and prove that it should be her instead of Josh, right? Oh, yeah. And of course, reverse engineering from the. End that is what they're doing. Yeah. It just a little blatant got round two of this. I think is right after they meet CJ says in her duties as press secretary, plus without Leo there. She's like, okay. We really we have to get statements endorsing the peace plan from every member of the UN Security Council. I thought this was a clever thing, you know, the reason why CJ would be talking to the UN is because they're actually talking about getting statements. You know that there's there's public message part of it. The are aspect. Yeah. She's dealing with these UN Member States, and she has the idea and then Toby comes in and has the same idea you might wanna start gathering statements from Security Council members build momentum toward that resolution. We can tell the president was your idea. Thanks. Hey, why don't you work with state bundled together? Any public statements for members of the Security Council? I gotta get back on us. And she doesn't bother to correct them say, yeah, I got it guys. I already know this rises. Sure Caroline CJ exchange that look like these men being one step. Hind and then wanting to take credit for right being one step ahead. Yeah. And then round three is is this child tax credit issue. Capping the number of children for the three hundred dollar tax cut. Josh and Toby are out there making opposite deals without communicating with each other. And I think this is what you're talking about like come on. Would you really be having these conversations and not have any kind of plan here? This is the first couple of weeks in the administration kind of mistake to be making. Hey, let's sit down for five minutes. Yes. Talk about where we are. Hey, there's any development text me off like, let's stay this really stay together on this..

"An interim chief of staff for the next couple of days while they wait to see how Lee is health crisis pans out. And then he goes from just a whispered word from his chief of staff, Leo to just choosing CJ. Yeah quickly. Yep. Pete rouse was interim chief of staff to President Obama. He served for three months after Rahm Emanuel laughed and before William Daley took over, and, you know, an interim chief of staff makes sense one thing that I do like about the idea of Leo. He is the chief of staff. Right. And so one of his responsibilities is to kind of recognize talent and see what people are capable of and put them in the right room with the at the right time. And I like the idea that he has seen in CJ over the past six years that she actually has the stuff to be chief of staff, even though she doesn't have maybe the most obvious resume for that job. He has some Leo vision. That's allowed him to say it's got to be her. I agree with you. And I think there's a little something missing. Then instead of this whole thing occurring sort of tacitly without our hearing anything of substance or even the suggestion that there is a greater conversation between Leone president Bartlett would have been interesting to hear I feel like if somebody who is as an expert as I am finds that is not credible for the press secretary v come chief of staff would have been worth a seen a moment to speech to hear a little bit of the substance of why Leo's just got the one name. I would like to heard how he would articulate it. And I wouldn't have minded an acknowledgement that this is, you know, this may not be what you're expecting this might be an audience and this has never happened before. But here's why. No, I think you're right. I mean, I think about the way that that'd be fitter was chosen for her job. And we got a really great dramatization of why she was the right person. Despite all these surface attributes that made it seem like she would be a terrible choice coming into the White House. Hi. Hi. And how zany she was with their poker in APAC, affirming and stuff. But in the end, we got to see evidence of why she would be the right replacement for such a huge role. And that was MRs Landingham here. We're talking about Leo. That's a very very good point. And I think you could have built probably a great entire episode where that was the plot this decision rather than it's sort of simmering in the background of the rest of this episode, and then occurring sort of offscreen. Yes, there were any, you know, real conversations about him. Maybe that's the foundational criticism that I have is that I am four C J being the chief of staff, I think is an interesting decision. But I feel like it was done hastily here. Yeah. It could have had one more episode to stretch out that replacement where we did get to have those things expanded upon could have been great and could have been interesting. I chuckled to myself as I watched this episode. I thought oh finally will get a great scene in the Oval Office head to head with president Bartlett..

"Talking about episode three from season six it's called third day story. It was written by our dear dear friend, Eli. It was directed by our dear one dear because he hasn't been on his often friend Christopher messiah. No. And it first aired on November third two thousand four in this episode. The White House is in chaos without Leo who suffered a heart attack at Camp, David. But before signing the Middle East peace accord, the president wants the staff to get the support of congress and the United Nations, Josh and Toby or pulling in opposite directions without a chief of staff to direct them CJ. Does the best she can to maintain some order and Donna returns to work, but she's in wheelchair and Charlie reveals that he could graduate from Georgetown. But he's putting it off because he's afraid of swimming. There is no swim test for Georgetown's graduation, by the way, there is a swim test for Cornell. Really? Yes. But my parents attended and they're fine. Fine swimmers as a result there, some notable things about this episode that I thought we could mentioned off the top one. This is the first time that Melissa FitzGerald is given a guest starring credit. That's funny. I did notice it. Yeah. I was wondering if I just hadn't noticed it before. But she's got that. Nice upfront credit. Yeah. But ago fits Armin Mueller Stahl is also given an upfront credit. But then I didn't see him in the episode and I had to go back. And he's on TV. We don't see him in person. So to speak in episode screened in screen interesting. Yeah, he got a special guest star credit for that is a Hollywood heavyweight. Another thing about this episode that is different from others is we get the title across the picture of the White House as we're entering. We don't get our trademark black screen between the previously on and the start of the episode. We get the title third day story in the bottom as opposed to. Centered over black. I don't know why that that is nor do I maybe it's just them trying out new stylistic moves, maybe they misplaced that black card. I don't know. How it all works, technically? Yeah. Somebody left in the art department closet. I just throw it over the White House. What would you think of this episode? Love it. It was fun to watch has some great. I think ally dialogue, and there's some funny stuff and lighter, and it's sort of a little bit of a respite from some of the more dramatic were even soap operatic elements of the preceding two episodes, although there's still darkness here. But I don't aspects of it struck me as silly not always in a good way. What struck you silly the CJ Josh eating contest? I think is silly like although kind of funny, and I like when she walks by the Roosevelt room, then has a second thought and comes in. And then she after taking his brownie way, she comes back again takes all the brownies. It's funny that made me laugh, but an all seems to the Genesis of it seems to be our friend is fighting for his life and here eating a Donut. I just didn't really get the. That's it. I'm challenging you to week of not eating isn't that? I don't know. It seemed maybe it's a quibble to refer to a minor comic subplot as inorganic. But it's not like, I'm not aware of CJ being a health food nut and Josh's being a chronic -ly bad eater. It just kind of came..

In an earlier episode, we talked about union membership. Yeah, and and the decline in it's an how we fix. It's not fixed yet in the unions will the same kind of power they did when they were pushed him for the five day week, that was a problem.

You'll bring me down to. Wonder about businesses though you would think they just makes cold decisions based on profitability and probably and if they've got numbers that these other countries where people work fewer hours, the productivity is higher you you'd think that the be good in a full. I mean, I went into this thinking so nice idea, but how do you get over the conundrum that people are gonna wanna work less for the same amount of money. And I suppose I find Andrew revelation. He was because because you know he was looking at it north from, I want to be nice point of view, but from a hard nose business point of view, which ended up being nice and work life balance and all that and saying we can, we not productive and we could be, you know. E twenty percent more productive and have twenty percent fewer hours and the productivity. It's the same. And so you know, it's financially possible. Then I end up thinking, well, maybe the two day weekends, just a convention. I mean, you know it is the convention before that was the one day we.

We have also pledged to invest the majority of our prophets into Trey planting. And reforestation helping to come back climate change and improve bio-diversity. We are already trying to do business ethically as possible, but this was the inspiration to put the final elements in place and join this amazing movement as well as to review how we make our buying decisions to ensure that we evaluate the social as well as financial impact.

"Well, if you think about it when generally a woman returns to work for maternity leave, the first thing they do is negotiate time off. Now are if you are studied business leader, he would say that a returning mother. Possibly one of the most individuals to manage her time. And actually, in most cases, one will get a full week's value from someone who's only working four days a week once used initiator of a four day week trial. In essence, you all then saying, well, hang on its productivity. That matters. It's how we pay reward productivity. It's not how we pay and reward somebody just warming seat in the office. So we have subsequently adjusted upwards. The salaries of our infecting in an a couple of cases, senior lead female leaders who had actually made that mistake come back in the Goshi eighty on time, win are paying them as if are full-time because we're paying on productivity. The other thing it does is it also because everybody. He gets a day off. Suddenly care is not a family care, doesn't resume remain in the preserve of the female domain. All of our staff have an expectation that they can have a day, and that means the people can share family responsibilities and all your senior male leaders doing this as well. So the oral arguments around, well, he's committed. She's only part time all of those go at the same time. I mean, that sounds Berlet and just in terms of your finances. And I guess this is sort of clear you said very clearly the announcement you made your staff. It's a five days pay for four four day week. I assume you've coped with this financially because the productivity is gone up. Absolutely. I mean, in fact, our overall profitability has gone up. Pasallah we've had business come to precisely because we all perating this way. I think in in modern society, increasingly people all looking for companies who are operating ethically, but as a hard nosed businessman, I have to be. I've got an independent board, an independent shareholders to look after one I'm getting is better productivity, but I might actually getting better quality of work as well, because my staff of fresher, they are more committed. I have a queue of people down the street wanting to work for us. We have low turnover. We have lowest sick leave. All of these things are actually driving the businesses. Well, it's not a three day weekend forever on it it because you've still people in the office on Fridays and Monday. So it sort of the days the people have all very just to sort of point of the technical. Not really. Yeah, this is very much a team based approach. So the tea, each individual team develops their own rosters. That may mean that this week you might get Friday next week. It might be wedding unless, of course you have one team member who says, I was want Tuesday and everybody else goes, we'd really, we really hate Tuesday's. So actually we do. Now that's been portent. We have to still deliver a customer service to the same standards and we have sixteen retail branches across New Zealand. We have to service those customers in normal business hours. And so not withstanding the fact that we're doing this. We've had to restructure things generally driven by the staff so that customer service isn't adversely impacted at all. Just to be clear. You haven't ended up with people having to do the extra work. Hope. There's been a reduction in that sort of net number of working hours home and home and work if you were to mean yeah, now that the has been now the way we do it, it's a off contract terms. Can't change. We have to. We have to still contract you for five days a week. And the reason for that is employment legislation in New Zealand is highly prescriptive about days of work, start times, finish times, etc..

"Younger women hungry for political office on the left but yeah i mean i think that that's that's certainly the case and i'll or a you know one of the things that's definitely true is if you look at the data among you know using trump's approval rating is perhaps a proxy for this particular thing what you saw within the data was that overwhelmingly the people who hated trump the most were eighteen or twenty nine year old women overwhelmingly his approval rating they're in any particular month pretty much never got above 25 percent maybe a few months it was twenty six or twenty seven but dipped as low as twenty one percent and that's far different than it is among the sixty five and older crowd where even at a low point which was the end of the year was still 40 percent among sixty five and older women so you know i think that the concentration where the energy is within the parties right now it's really among younger people that really really don't like trump and younger women in particular and that's probably going to drive what goes on and you continue to see a demographic problem for republicans right way if you're not acting people the certain gender of a certain age group then longterm you're gonna you're going to see ito people who might have been leftleaning republicans decided to be centrist leaning democrats whatever it is you know like there's a certain hurdle that i think is faced with when republicans sort of missed this kind of wave army mobile certainly point out that trump's approval rating if you go by age group is and you control for parties worst among the youngest republican than his among the oldest obviously there's timed to repair that over the long term you know politics as never stationary things tend to move but at least in the short term yeah let's start drove up your was of may be any final thoughts on the women's march in particular whether flip thought like sustained bigger smaller different from the one that happened a year ago and whether says anything about the sort of wave that we've been discussing here but perry in dc uh you know in the three days of the shutdown talking to lawmakers like where does.

"Between hillary clinton and donald trump and that is something that has continued on this is far larger than the gender gap that we saw for barack obama soda put it this way right now we have a fifteen percentage point difference in approval between trump among men and women for comparison the difference by gender imp former president obama's approval rating gallup's weekly surveys in december nine two december two thousand nine was never greater than six percentage points so this is more than two times that gender gap that we were seeing this is a huge huge split among men and women and it's sometimes shows itself you know in the generic congressional ballot as well uh so i wouldn't be surprised if we get a large gender gap going into this year's midterm elections and the gender gap has the gap i know that his approval has maybe tick damp has the gap stayed the same or as the gender gap widening are that the gap itself among the general population does seem to be staying stable however we do see perhaps some patterns among different groups one that stuck out to me that i think was the typically signify gant was among republican women verses republican man so then the first month what we saw was about three point gender gap and in the last month of two thousand seventeen we saw a seven point gender gap between republican men and women and that in itself is a very very large gap within party you know if you go back to barack obama in two thousand sixteen the cooperative congressional election survey we saw that you know within party the gap was never more than two percentage points you go back for george w bush back in two thousand eight the american national election survey was never a was pretty much a one percentage point or less if you look at between republican men republican women and democratic men in democratic woman so you get a very very large gender gap even within party at the scene clear any reaction that republican women in particular movement they're mansell feel like it's a group we just keep mentioning over and over on this fact the numbers tennis you fritz van on that point this shouldn't be to me that surprising right in so far.

"A lot of the people in the legislative branch maybe prefer not having trump mucking up at negotiations look you can have a conversation in a room without the trump sort of bomb throwing a elements of surprise and say okay we'd rather we'd rather just do this ourselves and kind of have him do sort of anodyne you know tweets on the side but but sort of leave him out of the process if he's going to be too much of an element of surprise there are many of his what he has to contribute is basically tweet saying that we should and the filibuster in the united states senate which just will not happen at least according everything that i understand about the senate body and how it feels about that particular issue with this time the may it is best that he kinds of cepa side i'll let me just talk about the perry point for a second which was the idea being you know trump and immigration we've spoken about this about nine trillion times on this podcast now if there was one issue that help trump when the republican primary wise immigration it was very very important to his voters and it is also an issue perhaps that the signalling issue we don't know if it's because of immigration versus wet it's merely signalling but that politicians views republican politicians views on immigration has correlated fairly highly with how they perform in primaries the more hawkish you are an immigration the better you do so this is a tough issue for republicans so i completely understand from an electoral standpoint why they're so hesitant to compromise and especially the president who's made such a big deal out of it let's let's circle back to democrats in the ninth inning so to wrap on on this but parried you feel like because i know we were sort of discussing this before the end of the shutdown earlier today that felt like democrats were drawing taking a hard stance here they were you know holding out for this shut down that may be this more strident side of the democratic party had sort of pushed democrats a a large to sort of like play raw power paul.

"If the mcconnell did not commit to that vote to um the democrats he also like jeff flake in dan and lindsey graham are important factors here because they are they they're position they voted against the cr on uh friday they are a sort of a middle ground here where and mcconnell promising them there's gonna be a i think met as more because the republicans and you know and i i think there with their with their role in the esteem it will be asking do they are trying to sort of really kraft this compromise and graham is tried to build this alliance with trump i'm not sure if it's going to walker not and that's the uh and i think that'll be importance through severe who's actually because ultimately we have to figure out as a policy outcome that everybody can agree to and graham and trump are big factors in that along with speaker ryan yeah so let's talk about that examine someone's name who haven't been hearing this much much this afternoon in this sort of resolution to the shutdown is the president donald trump and and you know it doesn't feel like anything in this agreement solved the trump problem which as was reported over the weekend is that he doesn't really have a strong role he doesn't have a strong policy preference both republicans and democrats appear to not be clearer what kind of guideline they're getting from him so perry is today an indication that solving the trump problem is still tb de or is it an indication that may be stuff can happen without trump at all and that's the way that it's going to be over the next few weeks i think with idea he doesn't have any proper pointedly quoque argument or computer kelly and miller taken over it brain but that's what that's a little bit pilica but that's what both but that's with graham and schumer are sort of claiming whether that's true and here's what you're the date that they sort of say that when the berra's i party doesn't do would you you're part of the do what you want it easy to blame.

"If they if you get a little bit of cold feet if you say well right now this is sort of like a mini shut down the might be a blip on the american brain for a while and if we draw this out into i don't know how how long the longest shutdown has been but if you basically drought out into event an event that people remember you risk irritating people of the also might say uh or as many in the liberal base are saying you might get something actually done so i feel like it's a weird it's the cautious politicians that have sort of one out a little bit right the idea that you know i think a lot of politicians are smallc conservative particularly national level politicians and i i do think that you're kind of seeing this and you're seeing the democratic base in some corner be a bit angry about it what was the hand the democrats actually had to play here they do not control the house they do not control the presidency and while they currently can disrupt things in the senate it's not like they can something in the senate on the own so i'm just not sure whether or not there was a quote unquote winning hand for democrats maybe there was less of a losing hand or something along those lines were they could claim that they fought to a draw but i think ultimately to cut your losses yeah i i think that senate minority leader schumer think recognized that the really what what i mean associate let me let me let me probe that a little bit so there was two days against i guess since friday so i don't know how much of a narrative concern of settle in over a couple of days but i guess there is a there was a chance the democrats hold this line and the public the polling shows that the blame is coming down hard on republicans because everyone saying trump from republicans have a majority they own all three chambers they can't get it together this shutdown is totally on them it's a democrats just get the sort of sit back and wait for republicans cave and show maybe that was the the winning hand and maybe that just didn't materialize as sort of forcefully as they.
