Philadelphia Eagles sign linebacker Eric Wilson
"Eagles have made some news over the last couple of days that we should pass along. The birds have made a couple of free agent signings Over the last couple of days and will run those down for you here. You can tell. It's a totally new eagles regime by the way when they go out and prioritize adding a linebacker in free agency although the eljay fort fiasco tells us not to count our chickens before they're hatched. The eagles signed former vikings linebacker. Eric wilson to a one year deal this week worth up to three and a quarter million dollars. There is a connection to the eagles. Here with wilson a linebackers coach. Nick rally spent time as wilson's assistant position coach for the last three years in minnesota. So you know so much time when you're adding free agents who your trading for players. There's always some kind of coaching connection especially here with the eagles over the last few years and that continues to be the case. Now wilson turns just twenty years old in september so he's a younger player and became a full time starter for the vikings last year. How do you really solid season for them to record it. One hundred twenty two tackles eight passes defended three interceptions in one forced fumble clearly. He's the number one linebacker on the roster. Right now. he'll be atop the depth chart he'll be the guy starting at middle linebacker unless something totally unforeseen happens. And i'm still kind of trying to figure out how the eagles got their hands on them at this stage in the off season for it for as little as they did and considering the salary cap situation that they're in and we know that this is not a position. The eagles have prioritized a whole lot. In recent off seasons they did again. Like i mentioned a sign eljay for contract very early in the offseason. Two years ago when it seemed like their third free agent off the board and they gave him a lot of guaranteed money. And then jim schwartz never played them and they cut him in midseason in the baltimore. Ravens picked him up in a hurry and he played great for them in the second half of the two thousand nine hundred and season to the point where they signed him to a contract extension before the season was out and eljay ford would have been a very big help in the eagles on the eagles. Defense these last couple of years and so we're kind of. I don't think this is going to go that way Eric wilson has has has a little bit more to his resume than eljay ford did when the eagles picked him up

Hong Kong Tries to Soothe the Rich With a Big Tax Break
"Talk business and tax breaks now because it's something being discussed in Hong Kong by officials who are hoping these maybe a sweetness to help attract the best investors and joining us Is our business correspondent Andrea would and you tell us a bit more about these tax breaks and what exactly they're planning. Well, this being this, you know, Hong Kong has had a lot of political turmoil. Over the past two years, the Beijing has imposed the national security law on Hong Kong to try and quell that And its circuit, Bt's made Hong Kong perhaps a less attractive place to live a Zoricic olt. Hong Kong officials now seem to be talking about trying to encourage businesses. Especially in finance to stay in the city rather than go to its old rival Singapore or other cities in the region. Some of the key things we're waiting for more details, but one of the key things is helping private equity investors. There's a thing where the people of the the center of private Equity Investments, the general partners, These are people who actually run the fund. They could get paid Some of the way that they make their money is through a technique known as carried interest. Now this is always very controversial about whether it should be taxed or not. Anyway, Hong Kong seems to be prepared to give concessions so that private equity investors Don't have to pay this thing's tax. And then there's other incentives around as well to make it easier for companies that are based in Hong home to access it rich people on the mainland off China and try and near look after their wealth management needs. Do they really think that these businesses are going to be swayed or would by this is that he given the kind of level of of disquiet there's been even in business circles as to the political turmoil. Well. Traditionally, Hong Kong has bean quite in a political place. And cynics say that you're basically as long as you can make money. People are going to stay in Hong Kong. I mean, it started off as a free port, you know, back in Victorian times under the British, and it's always being very hasn't had much in the way of regulations is being very great. It should be in a great place for entrepreneurs. Make money. So I think this perhaps a rather cynical view here is that the big finance companies if you let them make more money by reducing their taxes, and so on, they are going to stay in her in Hong Kong. On that people are going to they may well have foreigners may well have political views, but they're not political activists. You know it's not their country, so the theory is that companies will stay here if they can make If they can make bigger profits.

Jaslin Kaur, Candidate for New York City Council District 23
"Skinner. This is the electorate on this episode. Have a conversation with just lean core candidate for new york city council district. Twenty-three does lean has lived in this community for her entire life and she's really passionate about fighting for the working people. There we start our conversation off with just leeann explaining what drives her leadership and why she was inspired to run for office in the first place. So here is just linkohr. So you're running for city council district. Twenty-three in queens. Was there a particular issue in your community that pushed you to run something that made you angry. Something that you're passionate about. What pushed you into this race. Yeah for me. I never saw myself as someone who wanted to run for office. But i think i was really just tired of having a kind of government. That doesn't actually respond to the working people so for me. I am the daughter of a taxi driver. My dad has been a taxi driver for nearly thirty years. Now but we have been dealing with a taxi medallion debt crisis for about seven years at this point. And so i look back at points in my life like back. In two thousand fourteen where the markets were being inflated artificially by medallion brokers who really preying on a majority of immigrant working class people who thought that a taxi medallion would be a really worthwhile. Investment was worth a mill- a million dollars back in the ninety s and into the early two thousands so in that market we came under almost hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of debt almost overnight and it is devastating for so many families that are close to us our neighbors our family friends and when you look at the state of our city these are the kinds of workers who generate worth of revenue. I city but don't have pension don't have a retirement fund and get people like my father who are sixty two years old and still working these fourteen hour shifts in the middle of a pandemic. So i see myself as somebody who really wants to champion the rights of many of our gig economy workers who have just been categorically left out of political process. How does this
A highlight from My College Experience in a Nutshell (Part 1)
"Spring semester. Two thousand eighteen for one is the first semester. I got to go outside of campus to report. For example i cover a civil court case regarding property dispute. I attended a neighborhood council meeting a few blocks away from my house. The semester is also the continuation of my second year in a university pep band when the semester starting in january. I didn't anticipate ticky of what might become the most fun semester. I've had the band. Ceaseless women's basketball team was on fire. The band include myself as a every home game. Cheer them since. I commuted campus every day. I would always stay on campus on game days and usually at the library either doing homework or studying between my last class and before the game starts fast four to march college basketball playoff time. The men's basketball team missed the playoffs that year but the women's basketball team was in for a journey. It all began on march six when the band cheerleaders and dance team border buses to cal state.

"two years" Discussed on Daily Grace
"I mean february to february got annual year. You've got fiscal year. We have podcast. You're yeah we are also going to be hearing from you. All and of course the grand finale bloopers and i of so excited about this year's blueberries because last year we decided to do bloopers kind of as like an after thought like oh that would be funny but this year jesse has been planning jesse has been saving all of our mistakes and awkward moments. And so i'm sure it's going to be epic. I haven't heard them yet. i have either. She's gonna edit in and we're going to hear it when you hear it. Yes which is so much fun. But i think that i can speak for both of us when i say that we are so grateful for this podcast. We are so grateful for what god has been doing. And we're so grateful for all of you who have been listening along. You know when i interviewed to work today. The grace co more than two years ago. Kristen in my interview asked me. If i would ever be interested. Potentially maybe in the idea of hosting a podcast. And i kind of like tried to contain my keep a relatively straight face and be like yes i would. I would really enjoy that. I was so excited though and after a few months of working for the day. Grace co kristen told me. I think i found you a co host and was pumped in two years later here. We are meeting sound even going at this for a while now and you know over the last couple of years. God has worked in ways that we honestly couldn't have predicted or imagined when this all started and he gets every bit of the glory. Yeah and really. That's what we are. All about right. That god would be glorified and the gospel made known and he is so good and he is so faithful and he has used this medium for his glory. Searcher really anything. Good that has come out of this. Podcast is by god's grace alone he really does deserve all of the glory. And i'm just glad that we can pause and celebrate the work but he has done this past year through this medium with this simple bonus episode because he has surely done a mighty work in my own heart and life through this podcast this past year but before i share i want to hear from you. Janna how has god used the podcast in your life. This year More ways than i could count. Yeah honestly and possibly more ways than even realize 'cause i'm convinced that through these conversations and through this crap and just everything that goes into this podcast that he is working things in my heart Even when i don't realize it now you know. I think that the biggest thing that i can say from the past year is that through the podcast. I have developed a greater love for god as we have seen more and more of his character. I've developed a greater love for god's word as we dive into it week after week eaten and a greater love for his people even as we have talked about issues that affect different groups of people or we hear from people who have different experiences and stephanie. I even think you know you and i often have different. Perspectives different experiences and different strengths. That we bring in and through that i have just continued to increasingly value. How god has given us the body of christ encourage one another to build each other up the to really make us better together so true You know another big thing. I'm pretty sure i said this last year. I'm not quite sure but it's true at its continuing as dodd has developed a greater humility in me. Oh yeah this podcast and You know as we do look at these topics that are often hard and often nuanced. I've had to be okay with changing my mind. I have had to recognize areas where my understanding has fallen short Where maybe i have said things that were not helpful Or that didn't really aligned with god's heart and even through this podcast he has helped to correct some of those things in me. And i know that he is going to continue to do that as well. I could go on all day talking about how got us. Use the podcast in my life because it has been such an amazing blessing. But i'll stop there and stephanie. I want to hear from you. Okay i mean. I could pretty much say exactly what you said but Yeah me working through the podcast content. Every week this year has been really instrumental in helping me see how the gospel can and should inform and shape. How i think about the world and other people and like you said like how it doesn't always and just again being invited to be a humble learner before the lord and yeah and not only that i really got to see how the gospel does apply to all of life right. There is no topic or problem that the gospel does not impact and i needed that reminder this year because this year was hard and i think we collectively grieved many things and so it was really helpful for me to talk through a lot of those hard topics like decision -greeing while with others or learning from those who are different from us about racial and cultural diversity about forgiveness and what that looks like and so much more and to actually apply the gospel to those very real and very hard topics was really edifying for me personally and you know every week or just taking these hard topics and going to god's word to see what he has to say about them and that really has again caused me to to embrace the posture of a learner humble learner and literally i feel like i start working on every episode outlined with my hands up asking god to help me like that is not an exaggeration. I find myself really desperate. For god's help every week working through these topics and going to his word and it's been wonderful. Yeah i'm right by with all of those as well. It's been such a wonderful means of sanctification. They used in my life and you know it is our prayer that it's done something similar for you that god has used these conversations to help grow you and to sanctify you. And to call you back to his word and his goodness and to rejoice in him and delight and ham and the truth is we have no idea the extent to which god is using these gospel conversations for his kingdom but he is gracious to give us glimpses of it and part of that is through the stories that you all share and you know we have also been so grateful and encouraged by the reviews left on itunes. This past year we read and sometimes reread. At least i do so many of them. And were so encouraged and so humbled and we wanted to take a minute to read a couple. That have really stuck out to us. And have encouraged us on this journey and so one as from l. carolina's. I'm sorry i'm buttering that she said by the grace of god. I found this podcast in a very low point. In my life i personal. I felt like it was crumbling. And as a mom of two young children it seemed almost impossible to find the energy and strength to pull us through. This podcast has helped me. Endure has introduced me to god's character and encourage me to open my bible again after at least a decade. I'm so grateful for the podcast. And the other resources from the daily greece co i've bought scripture cards and bible studies in every resource especially the podcast is five star quality.

"When was last time I think it was like two years ago? She's crazy all happened slowly. I I mean I don't know how does two years pass without having sex. I don't know it's been a long time and and it's like I want to find my way back to two viewing myself as a person that is a sexual person. I don't even know where where to begin with it. I don't even know how initiate sexy anymore. It's just feels incomplete incomplete. I feel like there's a big part of me that isn't being expressed. I feel like the sexual part of me is just doesn't exist anymore. This is mother had sessions. I'm Dr Alexander Sacks today I'm talking with a couple recalling recalling CASSIE and ray they're both artists and they've been together for more than eight years but three years ago around the time cassie got pregnant their sex life came to a standstill. Now their son is two years old and the problem has only gotten worse. CASSIE and I live in California but volunteered to fly to New York. Mark to speak with me. They said that they weren't comfortable leaving their toddler with babysitter so we decided to do our session. In a hotel room in downtown Manhattan while array was putting their son to bed Kassian. I spoke one on one. She began by telling me about the sexual problems. That pre existed the baby. I could could tell from early on that. We had different sex drive's or sexually different and I just think in general enroll. I'm just a more physically open and more sexual person than he is. And I have a higher sex drive than he does and It's never I mean before. It wasn't a huge issue because we connect on Sony different levels otherwise. And you know I mean he's my best friend he's the person I was just want to spend time with do everything with and so that I felt like. Oh this is something that we can work on and we can figure out together and meet in the middle and I think we were for a while. I think what started to happen was I started to get a little bit sick of being the one who's always initiating which kind kind of how started to feel. Yeah so I if it was like Oh this is fine. I can do this. But it never really shifted over to him being the one who wanted to initiate more so than it's sorta hard because it is like. Oh well does he really desire me like I desire him or what. Even though I know he does but it you know over time it just it builds up so that was there at the very beginning and what was what was sex lake when you had sex. Did you think This is maybe Eh. Not The best sex I've ever had. Did you like when you said meet in the middle. I mean what. What was it like early on with your husband? Well he is. He's physically guarded kind of guarded about his body. His physical self. He just I guess I have have more experience sexually than he does. And so an I feel like I'm very open. I kind of like Imbruglia in the moment about it and go with the flow and I. I'm not stuck in my head about what's going on in like stress out about it for me sexist Really great release. I guess I ha. I have this idea that when you're really connected and it's like like this really intuitive thing and it's just going really well it's that you don't have to talk about it you don't have to say like no. Can you do this or can you. That because it just kind of happens happens is more nonverbal. 'cause I know something that's come up with us is that he feels like I judge him early get critical with him About how he is sexually so I think the when it has worked well as you know. He didn't get that for me. When you say you give your husband feedback sometimes sometimes in bed? What are you asking for well? I guess there's Times like I was saying before you know where I don't always want to be the one to be leading in during what I know to do to have an orgasm. It's like sometimes I just want to lay back and have him do all the work. What's the feeling he's passive? He's disengaged you're wondering where he is. You're wondering tell me yes. Sometimes I do wonder worry is a little bit and he I mean here knows this too. You know it's like he does get incontinence head a lot so that yeah like give he if I feel like he's kind of disengaged or something or AH. I think what what would happen is that there would be like. He could sense me getting frustrated because I could sense that he wasn't really present president. Or whatever or you know or like not connecting with me and so then I would start to get kind of frustrated and then he would sense that and pull away even more and so then it's like he can't be sexually aroused if you feel like you're being critiqued or a win someone would give up. What is that look like? Was that him losing direction. And what look what does that look like. Someone gives up. Yeah losing losing his erection or Just I don't Know Lake just getting frustrated and yeah just being like Oh. I'm just not really in the mood. How did it make you feel when he would get up from bed and Sam on the mode? Oh well yeah. It doesn't feel good than it feels. Feels like Oh. He isn't desire me or I did something wrong. And I you know I is is. It's my fault what did I ruin it or then I would also get kind of angry wire. Aren't you trying harder are. Why don't you want this like I want this? Are you afraid of initiating sex now because you're worried about that that cycle repeating. I know that I need to USC. Ease up because he does he does a lot and he's a really great father and husband and I know he's emotionally really sensitive so I know that builds up with him and it's just like you know it's a lot to have to put up with somebody's naggingly constantly making you feel like you're not doing things things right and that sucks. I don't want somebody.

"In the straight up statistical motivation for this next story was a report from the commerce. I department this morning. That consumer spending rose four tenths of one percent last month. That is good for reasons suburban About to explain. But it's also a data point on an economic continuum if you will because what's happening now has to be compared to what happened in this economy in the past and how it might affect the future that is I grant you Ted high-concept but Sabrina bail me out. If we are what we eat then our economy is what we spend. Well basically holding up our economy take a couple of years get Yaro is a consumer psychologist and author of decoding. The new consumer mind consumer spending always a massive part of the economic health of our country. RETREA consumer spending is just what it sounds like. It's what we spend on everything from toilet paper to cable food to health care in the first quarter this year it was growing at a rate of four point six percent adjusted for inflation and the second quarter went down to three point two percent and so far this quarter. It's down to two point two percent growth. That's not bad. Consumer spending is increasing at a pretty solid rate. However it's slowing down from the pace during the middle part of Twenty Nineteen James Bond is an economist with HSA AHL market? People were excited earlier. This year we were coming off a lousy end to twenty eighteen. The stock market was looking up. The employment rate was getting better and better. Those fundamentals are still in place. Where did you see that consumers at this point a year taking a little bit of a breather that does not mean that we are going to have a bad holiday spending season on the contrary things are looking Jeff? Scott Brown is chief economist at Raymond. James Yeah the overall trend here is still pretty promising We're looking consumer spending being driven by job growth and And wage growth and those trends are likely to continue into at least in the first half twenty twenty spend away fellow consumers spend away in New York. I'm Sabri Benesch. You're for marketplace gathering. I were talking about the tax law a couple of minutes ago. Here's another angle. The House voted yesterday to roll back part of it specifically the ten thousand thousand dollar cap on state and local tax deductions salt. They're called shorthand. The new bill would temporarily ditch the limits that the law imposed on the dollar amount of those payments ayments that people can deduct from their federal income taxes. And yes no. I know the chances this thing passes the Senate or slim to less than zero. But it's a window into the affect the laws had on one corner of this economy. Real Estate Marketplace's. Amy Scott is on in Affluent Montclair New Jersey. The average property tax bill is is more than nineteen thousand dollars. Almost twice the amount homeowners can now deduct I would say it's encouraged a lot of people too especially in the higher end to sell their homes that's broker June regular with the Stanton company all that selling in high tax states like New Jersey and New York and Connecticut has led lead to a glut of expensive homes says Lawrence Yun Chief Economist with the National Association of Realtors while the buyer perspective they are willing to only only make a bid at a very big discount. Union says that's one reason prices have been growing more slowly and even declined in some places at the high. The end of the market and that price competition has filtered down to the medium high end which means that it is leading to the wealth reduction for the people who may be in the middle income bracket. It's too early to know the long term effect of all this. The cap only kicked in last year and Kim Reuben with Urban Brookings Tax Policy Center says the majority of taxpayers still came out ahead even for people who are limited in their deduction. There are other things that went on with a tax law that lowered their overall burden. Realtors say State Flake Tennessee. Florida and Texas. Have come out ahead to attracting new residents residents with their lower taxes. I'm Amy Scott for marketplace.

"No I know it's not technically the end of the year yet still. We're going to take a look back from American public media this. This is marketplace in Los Angeles. I'm Kai Ryssdal. It is Friday today the twentieth twentieth of December. Good as always have along. Everybody so look. Here is my working hypothesis. This is pretty much the last day before a month or so of people being away for a couple of weeks and then coming back to a couple of weeks worth of political story that is with reason going to suck all the air out of the room. So Oh let's do this. An economic level set of sorts before the news gets subsumed Catherine repels Washington Po. She is all alone today in our New York Bureau. You're a Catholic. Just the two of us all right so look. Let's do. Let's do this first of all. I want to talk trade now that we have a deal on the US MCA and and we are told a deal with China that we haven't seen yet but we're told it to deal Can we say we have a trade peace. In our time I would say tensions have eased certainly and whatever anxiety there might have been in in markets amongst retailers dealers and manufacturers and others that things would escalate that has abated. But even so what we know about the China trade deal is not that we we are rolling back all of the tariffs so that we would have the same kind of landscape we had before trump took office we were only rolling back some of the tariffs for whatever the steel well is phase. One deal that. Is that materializes so whether you would call this a piece or a detente. I don't know it's kind of like two steps backward one step forward word but but certainly You know there's some relief out there that things didn't get worse okay Let's do a another little. Look becky thing and that is this a year ago. Talk of recession was very high. Stock Market was jittery. People were nervous. What a difference a day makes an off a year makes rather in all fairness rush? Yeah it looks like a lot of the concerns about the future of the economy and the imminent possibly imminent downturn were overblown The yield curve has uninvited and the recovery has continued. Its now more than a decade long which makes it the longest recovery on record and look unemployment is still falling or is or is it least not rising so all of that is good whether or not You know we can expect us. Indefinitely definitely is a is a separate question business cycles or called cycles for a reason but at least in the near term it does look like concerns were overblown. Okay About the future. Then and what we were promised as you point out in a column in the Post today And you know the calendar says this is the two year anniversary of This week I guess. Sunday is the anniversary of the GOP's tax cuts and it's not a restricting the case to say that that what was was promised by the President and Republicans in Congress was not delivered. Yeah on a number of metrics in fact this toddler this two year old all tax cut is sort of behind on its developmental milestones right. We were told that the tax cuts would pay for themselves. In fact that has not been the case defecates deficits have continued to expand both because of greater spending and because tax revenues are not rising as much as you would expect during a reception year recovery because the tax cuts We we also have not seen supercharged. GDP growth trump as. You may recall. Said we should expect something like six percent growth instead. We're getting about two percent which is about what we had had before trump took office investment actually fell the last couple of quarters. I wouldn't necessarily blame that on the tax cuts but it does suggest that they were not They they did not give it a sufficient to overcome whatever trade war Concerns there had been and wage gains have also been kind of disappointing. We did not see the promised. Major wage gains that the tax cuts were supposed to deliver year over year and inflation inflation adjusted terms. They're about at the same today as they were before. Trump took office so on a lot of key metrics The tax cuts are not quite delivering. Now and I'm sure the proponents will say give it more time Right give more time but so far the metrics. Don't don't look so great okay. Ah I WANNA go sideways into the politics of this past week for just a second And I wanted. Let's completely set aside the stock market. About which the president was jubilant again today more record highs but I I want to ask you why things like consumer confidence and retail spending and all those sort of gut level metrics of this. Connie don't seem to be being affected by the the Hullaballoo in Washington. Well it's not not clear that they were during previous Hullaballoo either right The economy was pre determined. The the economy remained pretty. We strong during Clinton's impeachment and in fact. GDP growth was better. It didn't seem like impeachment affected the economy or I don't think markets substantially substantially one way or the other they seem relatively divorced from what another which may be is just a reflection of the fact that presidents don't control the economy they don't control stock markets? They get a Lotta they get too much credit too much blame when things are good or bad respectively And we like to think that policymakers I are are pulling all the levers but really they can only kind of affecting us on the margins even when we're talking about something major as potentially removing president Finally in super-quick. What do you think of my premise? That we're going to take two weeks and everybody's GonNa go away and then we're GONNA have two more weeks of impeachment and then finally Mila January people are GonNa tuned back in again. I hope you're right that we have two weeks where everyone gets to go away. That's where I think your your Prediction may be most suspect. Be some middle of the night tweets. Well Yeah Probably Catherine Bell Washington Post. Thank you Catherine. Thanks have a nice weekend on Wall Street late on a Friday and December or on a Friday in late December. More properly another day. Another record details when we do. The numbers.

"Oh my life and see where so many of the decisions I made in the past and mistakes I made led to different things later on to like sort of connect the dots if you will right life is just so deeply ingrained within our American society that for the unfortunately large percentage of people that struggled enjoy responsibly it feels impact awesome to stop it's very fitting that we're having this conversation now because I was walking home from downtown I I went out and had drinks from downtown and I walked by patio bar I sound making setting up a joke I'm actually not and I looked over and the spurs packers people sitting patio playing cornhole out in the parking lot I write and I literally thought and I looked around and I was like the only thing that I can even think about people doing at night involves alcohol what else is there in our society going and seeing a movie I guess but like when it's dark out everybody's drink senator Jerry the perfect example now when you go to the movies lost serve alcohol and do you go bowling what do you drink it's most of the Shit we do sooners around wild even like the only athletic thing that remains for people in there fucking thirties golf sinners around for most guys plates and his around gone gone and having a few drinks while you get around Jim is the only legitimate Yelich staying I can think of someone was drinking you'd be like what the fuck yes anywhere else in the world do the grocery store they serve wine while you fucking stroll your white escort around like it's ridiculous to and like ended at a daycare Daycare Beware Yeah You'd be like what even a church communion and shit like I mean it's everywhere it is truly nuts and it's something that I started to notice more and more on my way out like as I was you know there was probably a year period where I was like all right this is getting weird I know this is GonNa hit a point arrive to quit what's that GonNa look like it has I thought my way through it I was like Oh fuck that in like leaned in even harder because I was terrified of what that could mean what are you gonNa do whoa it's like I worked at I worked at a on college brand I'd written a total frat move book that was me I was drinking guy and at the same time I absolutely wasn't because I was not doing it correctly or properly or healthily or able to control myself deep into the night and it became serious fucking problem so it's like me man like everybody's like Oh my God jared you're so cool so I'm like the cool guy is I don't even want to be the cool guy but here I am you know it's it's I know how it is is tough now you don't but it feels like because of how deeply ingrained it feels impossible to stop and take like a really healthy look at the way you're using alcohol into correct course so like the first few months for me going to a meetings was absolutely paramount to my success of keeping myself from going back to drinking or or just saying like fucking I went three weeks I'm fine now in drinking again to clarify there you heard me refer to myself as an addict a couple times uh-huh and that's the label or the label related to substance abuse or drinking or whatever that I accept for myself like I am definitely an addict I have an addictive is fuck personalities part of what makes me an incredibly complicated and unique individual and I embrace that fact but my life will never be easy ever as like I don't really believe any what he's life is easy frankly like I don't I don't think that's the way life works you find me somebody living in easy life and let me monitor them unfettered for one week and we'll see just how easy that shit is you're talking about stocking yeah but if you have if you have purpose if you have drive and you see the world around you burning and you think that life can be vise easy then you are highly delusioned if your life is easier blowing it somehow nothing we're doing is easy you saying your life isn't worth doing you Jimmy Buffett carefree motherfucker night and think so so it's been two years since I had a drink but my life is easier than it was before in many ways these two years dry have been some of the most difficult and painful of my entire life but I'm more equipped to handle that difficulty in deal with that pain right I'm still not perfect I make mistakes all the fucking time but I make a lot fewer than I did when I was drinking to drown out the pain and drinking unhealthily and in its not like listen I don't condemn alcohol as a substance anymore than I condemn weed is a substance or any other substance it's all the all that stuff is in the same boat to me in you can make any of them up to advil fucking problem if you really wanted to it's just a matter of how each one affects each person and like for me we'd has been an incredible tool to cutting out a much more poisonous and awful substance from my life a crazy story kind of built what you just said yeah there's a local radio show host we're getting into the local radio ashby huge local radio pod growing up on Tampa Bay area and this is nationally syndicated in pressure is the MGM Bj Show Nj Morning Show it was pretty big out you know in in in Tampa definitely around the country and Todd Schnitt if you've ever heard of Xinchao he's like the the host of that he was okay so froggy he was this a radio's name froggy was my favorite co host and at one point froggy was hospitalized because he got addicted to over the counter pain relievers and I'm talking like I forgot the NBA it starts with a c. like one that you can purchase without a prescription lake like Naproxen it's not like seven across the day like pop sevens because he didn't want to get a headache during the day 'cause he was like would get headaches during the day so he was like I'll just seventies right now and that's not how they work you can take to create a health problem yes liver he had livered Oh yeah dude this habit got fucked a lot of people who use adderall or any of those called whatever the ones that help with the add adhd and all that shit really any amphetamine if you drink on in vitamin it fucks your liver and when you do that over X. amount of years a lot of people don't realize on that take adderall or Tako any of those different drugs that did that's actually happening and then you go get your liver tested for like your thirtieth birthday 'cause they do your blood tests or whatever and they're like hey man your liver is going to explode in eight years if you don't stop whatever it is you're doing and every single one those people eventually get down to it's like Oh shit you take Atarot and drink that's terrible for your fucking liver just weird but yeah you can make any substance anything people do food man if you people find different pockets and places to create issues based on their specific DNA right and with mine alcohol was the one that I found became a real fucking problem so like I had to cut it out but I don't condemn it as a substance for anybody else I don't hate people who drink like there was for sure a level of resentment I for me for like those around me still drinking as unfair as that is it's also impossible to avoid just as part of the thing but people always ask me like if I'm ever going to drink again which is funny like it's just funny that people care about that angle because it's not one even really give a lot of thought to beyond this like maybe one day I'll be strong enough to be a social drinker again and to do it the right way into be healthy insecure and having one or two and then just going to sleep like a normal person maybe not but right now I'm happy and I'm proud of Ym and what have accomplished in removing alcohol during these two years is not only probably the only thing that has kept me alive but it's certainly the only thing that has enabled me to make it through some of the intense painful and difficult decisions I've been presented with and continue to be presented with it but it was the right choice for me right in it it's not something that I am anytime soon gonNA walk away from because it's it's it's just worked so much fucking better so if you've known for a long time the you need to cut booze out of your life and you've always laughed off the prospect impossibility because it's so deeply ingrained in who you are and so deeply embedded in our society and socializing the guy who wrote total frat move quit drinking for at least two years and a day just making excuses own your shit you can build a life without alcohol if you need to and if you want to it is a thing I just did it and there is no reason you cannot too you need to or if you really want to and that's all I have to say about that Jacob can I ask a question that people are probably like I want to try to be in that listener shoe and question that they're thinking okay so let's say you were at a at a barbecue right okay and you for some reason you felt really blige D- like somebody's for some reason or another maybe something happened and you're talking to somebody and they like do would you be with me I'm not Oh so you just like do you think that one beer would derail me yeah I don't know I gene probably doing so eventually probably if I if you gave me one beer right now absolutely absolutely yes and that's what I'm saying like if one like one day maybe I will be in a place where that will not be a big deal right now it would fisher a big deal oh yeah we'll be a problem but I don't feel obliged at the moment yeah I guess it was mostly just like your innocence setting which no people still routinely in it's mostly people who feel uncomfortable by the fact that I quit will make jokes about like why don't you just have a fucking drinker take a shot or like people that I love people close to me really on occasion we'll still crossed the line and say Shit and I don't even dignify with a response because that's oh fucked up and I know they don't mean it or realize what they're doing and it's their problem not mine to like to to handle whatever so but yeah man it's it's Uh it still happens on occasion it still weird element yeah a Bachelor Party and Shit like where you don't know every dude it's always a weird thing he's always one alcoholic at the Bachelor Party who then knows that I'm sober and is like fuck this guy and it becomes a weird thing the whole weekend where I can feel them watching me I don't do I need to do like cocaine or something to show you that I presented Sir anyway yeah no it's I mean look it is not an easy thing to do by any means in in the fact that our society is so focused on alcohol sucks it sucks but it only changes if like one by one people start to say like Nah Man I'm not down for this and like those of you who are that's fucking dope you have your thing now I have mine like we does in what alcohol does for you it helps me unwind I've learned to use it in social situations even which is difficult at first by the way like for those of you who don't smoke off in think of how you feel when you're high now imagine being like that in a bar it is terrifying at first but you get used to it eventually and that's that's just the way the cookie crumbles like for some people they can't do any any either or any substance like for some people real hard core like I've been in rooms with people who do daycare can't touch anything ever in that's just the way it is down to fucking advil and shit they can't no substance can be put in their body or they will fucking derailed some people were that bad fortunately for me I'm not that level of that but everybody has their version of this to battle with I believe even people who don't have a problem with drinking alcohol makers of the greatest toothbrush in the history of oral hygiene this thing is crazy I actually I'm an idiot and I and I lost mine so I swung by target this morning grabbed another one because this morning I was brushing my teeth with like this disposable regular toothbrush that we had in the guest room for this is the worst moment went back home just so I could use it because it is literally the greatest like the first time you brush with using their two minute timer the buzzes every thirty seconds to ensure you achieve a full and even in dentist quip is incredible they've been sponsor a supporter of the gang for.

"Eh you know I mean that's really weird in specific but dumb high school should is what I yeah yeah you know what I'm saying yeah so we passed out on the trampoline like in sleeping bag you just like a hard time really bad it doesn't don't they that sounds like the stuff that you would find if you just walked by El Camino and looked in the truck bed what everything you just said Yeah it works album is a little bit of weed is scale One guy wrote me up for the Lucy Dude he gave me a minor intervention I was seventeen minor possession excuse me of tobacco for one loose cigarette the Dick all that got dropped except for the we'd charge But yeah I got all the breaks in court in just totally shit all over the system for the next five years as a result so I received minimal community service was told the stay out of trouble for a year that was it how that go it didn't go well my first night Texas state I received a minor in possession of alcohol ticket broke that pretrial diversion agreement with the DA then I got put on regular probation for a year from that point forward okay so now I'm at like another year starting in College at Texas state I'm on probation for a year right will two months later I got a Dwi and then I failed my first drug test for coke I started doing coke because we'd stay in your system for too long and then I managed to develop enough of a blow problem that I couldn't even stay out in front of that it was S. but the the the point is in college I took it to another level right I was party guy and it be like if you had known me I told you maintained this two years yeah just been building so kidding that's why you're not driving because I can't fucking see because my eyes burn fuchs glasses dot com slash RVP so badly to protect me you can't drive to the studio because because you're beating so hard you're you're just crying it's funny I tell everyone that it's like anxiety like mental health related but in secret it's me masking my horrific seizing addiction which is how the segment was going to end it was gonna be I did two years alcohol free and now I need to complain about my addiction to Beijing and this same it was going to be sponsored by birth bees and then like oddly enough when we hit them up and pitch them on it they're like yeah we're GonNa pass apparently huge liability on their end so just if any of your own or run or work for a competitor to birds bees that we can capitalize on the we'll do our own version of Beijing will come up with a word whatever pay us we already did it was seeing salts no we didn't oh fuck I forgot about that trademark copyright yes so he became like a huge part of my my personality right like my persona my character and just in my life in general like alcohol was a huge huge huge part of it and because of my continued arrests and violations in college my probation in full ended up being three and a half years before I finally got off okay so that's a really long time for again under an ounce of weed is what I started at first charge and then like a month after I finally did get off probation can have used probation grueling drug test after drug test after probation officer after court date after court date after shaming by a judge after fucking going to jail eight times however many I finally get off probation okay congrats and then like a month after I get off on my twenty first birthday literally that day while sipping my first ever legal beer in a bar I had my first panic attack and I would struggle with anxiety and panic from that day through today man that must have been really bad pa it was a but every single time I drank for a decade the next day when I was hung over starting with that twenty first birthday every single time drink for a decade the next day when I was hung over I had terrible anxiety frequent panic attacks it was fucking awful and that was obviously one of the massive contributing factors to me finally breaking and giving up alcohol but so post Grad after college I was the dude at the group dinner who is clearly going through some shit and dented the tables tab by an additional thirty dollars by himself by drinking at least twice as much as all the non addicts at the Table well And I still had anxiety like every time I was hung over but and you could mix in the occasional panic attack but I had started to become able to manage my mental health stuff a lot more and learn about a lot more it was easier to control or I thought it was at the time but eventually under the weight of a fresh marriage a failing company where jared and I used to work which was like a stressful Hellhole for several years for me and a lot of unresolved and untreated trauma for my childhood a lot of which was self inflicted and because I carried those drinking habits from college to adulthood they came back to haunt me and I was binging every time I drank like I wasn't drinking near every night when I drink I want a thousand miles an hour until I was black the fuck out and I put on like forty pounds and I was a miserable mess and and things came to a head at home and just in general I realized if I kept living the way I
