"And i'm the director of the center for sports communication. Mary's college and i wouldn't be a sports writer. Had it not been for lesley visser. It is hard to imagine. I think for young women. now just how. Few women were in really prominent roles on television and in the sports pages. But i was a huge basketball fan when i was in college and i can remember very clearly. Lesley visser doing those on-court interviews during the after the games and I remember there. Was this one time that that bobby knight was just a complete to her and said something really dismissive and you know she just took it and she looked up at him kind of rolled her eyes and i thought oh well i kind of like that. If that's a job description. I could definitely be a professional roller and anyway for somebody who loves sport and really you know that was kind of planted the seed for me that maybe that was something i could do and later on when i was working with you sarah. Espn i ended up. Starting to play roller derby and you know everybody in roller derby has a pseudonym. And what better way to have a pseudonym then to pay homage to somebody who's your mentor and hero and so my pseudonym for roller derby with leslie. Eviscerate and tagline was. She cuts through the pack. Like a hot knife. And i really love that. And so did she. And i ended up sending a picture with her name on the back of my jersey. When i was playing in about once and you know over the years lesley visser has become a mentor of mine and a friend and there is nobody better to recognize for women's history. Month leslie eviscerate. As a roller derby name is beyond legendary. Thanks jane skip back to the interview. So you end up obviously you cover at. Yeah all these things at the highest level but then you also have these intersections of sport and real history. Right the fall of the berlin wall and these moments that pass by and you probably remember history alongside the sport that was happening concurrently. Are there lots of moments like that for you or are you able to separate or is everything sort of a timeline of what you are personally covering at the time. Now few those really stand out. I mean the greatest assignment i ever had was to be at the fall of the berlin wall was one of the great stories of the century. along with what caused them to put up berlin wall so no to be there especially my dad from answer. Damn just my assignment. By the way. Of course dan rather and you know we had a million news. Correspondents and my little slice of the pie was going to be. How will sports in east germany people who follow the olympics East germany went from being the i've medals in the summer olympics. To about one hundred and twenty after they were clearly the stasi was involved in a program to dope the athletes. So mine was going to be know will. Will there be a boris. Becker from the other side of the wall and just to be there and see people who walked for days from dresden in potsdam to get through the brandenburg gate and tastes freedom. That was monumental the other two that were sort of along those lines..

"Where if you're going to see the champion crowned you have to watch that broadcast. It's not where you're like there. Thousands of papers there are. Thousands of radio shows thousands of podcasts. So it was enormous pressure but I grew to love it. Not i always felt. I'm still a writer like not someone who swears allot For instance. I think there are a lot of people in twitter. Podcasts i guess and they swear an. I always thought that was a substitute for more clever language. Like if you eat per you can come up with something that describes it better right. I wish i could agree with you. But love swearing wireless. And sometimes i won't tell you. The origin may be no of many of those words. F s august the leftover anglo-saxon peasant words after the norman invasion. They brought like we sit some people say s they brought into what you're speaking my language leslie because i love on this podcast. I literally go into the demolishing of words. So maybe maybe today we'll dig into some swear words Think they must be used sparingly but effectively and they they hit you where they need to when you use them if you use them right. They can't be a crutch we'll get right back to the interview. But i what is your favorite word. Hope i love. Hope started in the twelfth century as a noun and became a as well in the thirteenth century a word that has come up a lot lately in conversation speeches in music in probably people's secret journals the need for hope the need for positively a belief that what's to come. We'll be better and must be better right that we're gonna make it through two thousand twenty. We're gonna make twenty twenty one. Hope the great Emily dickinson had a short palm. It's a good one. Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all and sweetest in the gale is heard and sore must be the storm that could bash the little bird that kept so many warm. I've heard it in the chillers. Land and on the strangest see yet never an extremity asked a crumb of me hope to great word indeed speaking a great words today so in honor of women's history month unless they've estrin particular the word of the weakest doyen a woman who is the most respected or prominent person in a particular field the word originated in nineteen hundred five as the feminine of the french doyen which was a dean or the senior member of a body from the early fifteenth century. So the men's version fifteenth century women's ninety five and don't think it's lost on me that it took four hundred and fifty years for the world to decide it needed a word for the female version of a respected and revered boss in a sentence then owing to her proficiency and longevity in the field lesley visser is considered by many to be the end of sports media no more proof needed than the influence she's had on all that came after her like one of my great friends former. Espn colleagues jane. Mcmanus it's got a little tribute to leslie here. Hi i'm jane mcmanus. I'm a sports columnist deadspin..

"Sarah so you ended up marrying dick stockton who you met a during the nineteen seventy five world series and you guys were married for quite some time up until twenty ten. Did your job at all when you had another stalwart of the business on your arm or at least in your back pocket if somebody tried to cause you some trouble well ironically And dick was great. We had a great marriage. Both happy happily remarried but I loved it that he loves sports so we could talk. I don't know if your husband's involved in sports and that you can talk in what should they do on the balanced pasha. They cover the out bounce. Pass you know you actually talk about it but So i love that. Also we had the business in common but ironically. This was funny when we got married. Read our back and bill russell to our wedding. Now do you think anybody in boston. Cared about lesley visser and dick stockton getting when they're over by the shrimp bowl our back bill. Russell stole the bride's spotlight. Honestly i had to cover a celtics knicks game. Maybe a year later. Or whatever and david stearns have been great in opening the locker rooms for women. He was way ahead of the other. Leagues and Redwood let me in and it was like. I remember shaughnessy wrote about it. He gave read the ross barnett. Award the famous governor from alabama and Yeah it was. I was like read. What he's talking about him credentialed and no he would let me in. So that's the thanks. You get my gosh so in those moments when you aren't let in. I understand one hundred percent where you're coming from when you say if i put up a stink then it's a reminder that i'm different i just need to get the job done whatever capacity. I can't even. They're making it more difficult than they should. But on the other hand it must be frustrating to keep having to endure that instead of forcing them to recognize. That times have changed. And you need to do your job just as well as anyone. What was your preferred mode. Was it suck it up and try to do what you can or was it slowly grind them down or was it behind the scenes. Create a stink. What did you have a plan for making it so that people couldn't just put up that wall not let you in well. The boston globe was great in supporting. I physically thrown out of the cotton bowl locker room in nineteen eighty houston played nebraska and they came around with armbands in the fourth quarter. And i thought oh my god. It's a new decade. One thousand nine hundred eighty and this is not going to be a problem. And so i went in with all the other writers and they had coached young men who He was just startled when he asserted one last play the game and he was startled to see this woman coming in and he was a west point guy and he marched me out of they are and you know you don't wanna be the subject of all the cameras turning to you and i was credential. I was allowed in and so the cotton bowl had to issue me and the boston globe apology. But i think what people don't know is that There was no Area of support. It gives me such enormous gratitude..

If work really your sixties. Please i say i don't care but I was just a kid who loves sports. The way other kids love poetry music and i love. The celtics just showed how colorblind sports could be because I just love sam. Jones of course though. Celtic teams were magnificent and I dunno sam jones. I i love the bank. Shah i remember. I got a high cut coupons from santa claus. And i was writing. Twenty four in magic marker on my shirt but Eventually i got to meet him to know him and Just really to listen to everything. He's been through. He just told me a couple of weeks ago that here. He is sam jones when the fifty greatest players when ten titles only exceeded by bill russell and he told me a couple of weeks ago that he still puts both hands on the steering wheel. And if he's ever pulled over by a policeman he says to the policemen. Either take me right to the jail right now. I'm not gonna make a move for the glove compartment or my wallet. This is sam jones. And i said why did he do that. And he said. I'd rather go to jail than the graveyard That's so sad to hear So i mean. I love the obsession. I was obsessed with michael jordan growing up and my family never had anything to say about it other than to be encouraging. But i i know why i was so into it. It's because i was. You know gigantically toll for my age and my family was very active. We played a lot of tennis and golf and softball in the backyard. But this is many years after you this is. This is the fifties when you're growing up and telling everyone as a little girl. My most favorite and important thing is sports. What was it about your mom. You think that made her want encourage you to be a sports writer at the age of ten even though it literally didn't exist for women at the time instead of her either not agreeing or just wanting to protect you by telling you it would be too tough. Well first of all. I have to talk about your Ib league athletic career because not exchange somewhere along the way. E mails my husband. Bob canoe was a captain of basketball at harvard..

"And investment and eyeballs to the oldest and winningest women's pro soccer team in america and this ownership group is not just owners in investment or a name were really committed group of people with chicago ties all of us and a deep fandom who are hands on and ready to work to elevate this team in this group of bats players longtime owner artem whistler and his team have been presiding over the red star since the very beginning from tough times all the way to sell out crowds and now they're going to help lead this new group of us as we enter a brand new era for the nwa so we've got the star studded angel city f c ownership group. Got big name owners joining the courage and the spirit and casey massive players in sports and entertainment and business are all betting on women and i am beyond thrilled to join the ranks of some women that i really admire. Who helped inspire this move for me. This is my first big investment in anything and watching julie foudy abby wambach foil mia hamm jennifer garner natalie. Portman billie jean. King serena williams. The list goes on. It just made me feel not only confident in the product and the investment but a reminder that we put our money where are and we invest in the things that we think are good products and that deserve to be invested in. That are going to blow up. And i think it's going to All signs point to the nwa woman soccer's getting bigger and bigger. Plus these owners tweets are going to be lit. I'm fired up about that. I can't wait To actually get down to work. We've been at work for months but now that it's public it's going to. It's going to ramp up. And i really wanna help inspire change across the face of pro ownership And not just women's sports but in men's too because the biggest way to affect the lack of diversity at the top of sports is through ownership. That can better reflect the makeup of the teams players and staff and fans and cities Up until now. Most of the high profile women in sports ownership avert their roles via birth or marriage. But we've recently started seeing some really bad ass. Businesswomen some former star players some lifelong exacts all getting into the mix and that allows every little girl to dream of not just being a professional athlete. Which is a big enough dreaming itself. But now the front office and the owner's box to and the ownership group that we have also will Lgbtq plus people and people of color and former men's athletes women's athletes To dream of making this transition so fingers crossed that. I'll get to see a bunch of you in person at red stars games this summer. I just. I'm really excited to share the love that i have with this team with the existing diehard fans and then also introduce a bunch of you to what you've been missing a couple notes on this by the way i will always be the so now..

"Welcomed that she says with sarah spain. A podcast about well. Whatever the hell i want. Actors musicians athletes comedians. Neuroscientist wine experts. If i find somebody interesting. I'm bringing them to you. We'll talk about how they became who they are how they found success battle failures and how they ended up here talking to me by. I'm leslie super. Cbs and my dilemma. Is that. i've had too much time to think about stuff like K obviously i'm sick of empanadas ordering those in but also had a chance to be really annoyed by things in sports. Like why do they call it. Walk off home. Run like that annoys me because you know what it's a celebration and a call it a walk off home run. I mean that's something you do around the neighborhood. That's art. And i know i'm going to get enormous pushback on this but i think it should be something. You know congratulatory something. Happy not walk off home. Run to win the world series. Joe carter okay so first off unrelated lee. Whenever i hear the word walk off. I just think of my sweet mom. Who's not that into sports. And she emailed months after reading me. A story In her email is just one sentence. Simply what's a walk off So my non-sports obsessed parents have been learning a lot over the years by watching and reading my stuff As for your take on it walk off does sound a little boring. But it's accurate right. No need to run games over. So i'll let you fight the people that are going to be inevitably coming for you on that one and just say to your larger point which is all this time to think i. Actually i agree on it and it was. I was just talking to some friends about this the other day. I find that there are people who found stripping down the elements of their life to very limited. Things has led to discontent. They like their job. Now they used to like it but now it's all they have or they liked being a stay at home mom and now it's all they have they don't like it anymore. They need all the other stuff. And i think we're really finding out the power balance of exercise and rest time with friends. Culture music art dining.

"In a different light. So it's you can think. About what value do you get out of owning the car and what value can you personally add on the back end. I think you know vintage four by fours are getting more popular like on the on the Optimimistic side we've seen broncos go for lots of money for a long time and now you have the third gen broncos going for money and this is why i mean not to talk my own book but like the show with magnusson. He drove a wagga near his question. Was like why are jays broncos getting all the icon automotive love and and wagon. Ears aren't because here's where are ready to one hundred thousand dollars. There's one challenging. Because they're really good looking so what you would need to happen for your your car. Something of value these to get real popular in the aftermarket. And but unless that happens you're just sit on this so like you said we don't. We can't predict where the joneses. They're going to go until they start going that way. So if it's taking up space and you're not enjoying it you don't wanna keep it right. Yeah all right Let's wrap this up. Because i got team meeting in a couple of minutes anything else we could. We didn't get to your questions. We will save them. I promise Could chew is going wide body on a project worth it specifically a pro daily or pro touring design worth. It depends on your use case. If you're roads are rutted and having overly widened front tires is gonna well first off. If you're going to go wide body and not white in the chassis meaning wide-body just with wheels. That have fucking crazy dish on them. Just don't do that. Breaks geometry sucked up car horribly. Don't even consider that. Let's let's work. From a baseline of my suspension. Modifications have now caused my wheel hubs to be outside the body. That's all you had to start. Yeah right that's how a well done race car would be. That's how my fox body was. That's why you go. Wide-body my my. My suspension is now outside the body of the car. So if if that condition has been met the rest of it me is is. How heavy can you bear your steering. How limited can you bear. You're turning radius an angle and how much do you want to deal with tram. Lining if you're roads or read it and i think in a lot of cases especially for touring cars. It doesn't look better. I think the sixties the cars designs were great and just shoving these giant mountains of fenders on the side doesn't actually improve it so it depends on what the purposes Quick one julian was tuna canyon road. The one way downhill leads to. Pa is spirit. Driving a one way road going downhill is a good spot. Driving tightened quick. Yep if you overshoot it you will die. You've you could set breaks on fire easily on that road. It's very fun The jets say why he's british grand top gear america someone on a work visa funny Let's see chris. Kim wants to know. If if i can afford it is paying for a resto mod interpretation worth it or should i buy a well sorted nine six four nine three. The best overall air cooled experiences the main goal. I've had a couple customers that have wanted to buy other people's project cars and i've sent. Ppi people to look at them and they've all been junk elective with the company that does it and like with because i feel like right. Now you've got a couple of companies like rod. Emory and people of his caliber that are doing special things and a lot of other shops are jumping on the bandwagon. Which i understand. They wanna make money friend. A bunch budget singer knockoffs but but a singer is has been proven to be accruing in value the company's doing great things. But if then you matt farah go. I'm an open. Matte porsches build a singer. Knock off. I'm going to try and sell before a grand. I don't buy that car. It's just too risky by the but the the well sorted nine six four. That is a car that people know from a company. They no yeah. I would get a well sorted stock car first and then you know. Yeah yeah Adrian wants to know about my thoughts on ford stock. I i. I don't pick stocks buddy. I buy land. Sorry i appreciate your question. But i don't. I don't wanna pick stocks Jazz rock b. k.

"V eight power available with manual transmission What else falls under that category. I mean you can go a little older Twenty five k. You know maybe you can get go for like an e forty six m three twenty five k. Won't get you a great one but will get you into one issue. Pretty good one. Yeah but nine nine six porsche. Which is not a v. Eight but it certainly availables emmanuel and makes a great summer cruiser for sure. If you're an occasional track descartes and the camaro coup or the six vet like the vet is hard to be really hard to argue is to be a and it gets twenty eight miles per gallon and has a big trunk and it goes really fast and the platform. You can grow with it for a long time. Yup in the camaro i feel like is basically trying to be a corvette and it's less organi. It's not as comfortable in the visibilities worse and the trunk opening a smaller. like i would skip. If if if you're looking to both of those get the vet. Yeah i agree if you're looking at ya and the five fifty. Gt mustangs they're fine. I've got have reviews. They're nice if you really wanna do track work in one. You're going to need to do shock springs wheels. You know they can take a being. The engine told up really. Well they do. They feel heavy until you do a lot. They're plowing if you don't go square stands there floating if you don't do the ford racing suspension upgrade. So you gotta do a few things if you really want and now there's plenty of them out there so you could buy one. That's already been modified and as long as it's been modified by somebody knows what they're doing you know you're you're you're cool you know You could also Maybe z for M cu z. Three m coupes maybe earlier ones. That's a little older How much are used. Trs the good ones. I don't know if they're they might be in the thirties. Caymans as well a came s I chen came in s early. Second gen came in i. Would i would be there and also lotus lease. a lotus. Elise is thirty thousand dollars forever. You buy one that's gotta clean title you drive it you service it you maintain it you sell it for exactly what you paid for it so there at the time as well depending on how big or small you are that should be some Sean told us to. He got his question wrong. So i highlighted got it. I have a seventy five cherokee s narrow track that i picked up for forty five hundred dollars as a rebuilt engine And a repainting. Oh six should. I sell it now or hang onto it in case value. Goes up all right. Can you can you google what that is is that a fucking jeep cherokee. What is that what. I have no idea what that is. Oh oh it's jeep truck so it's like it's like it's like a bronco of gps. Now i mean he what. He's asking a financial. There isn't going to all of a sudden. Be a hundred thousand people that decide that they must have one of these. We're not going to all of a sudden and see one that has a replaced. Engine and a repaint go for factory museum money now you should not be looking at this car as an investment that will appreciate because if you keep it cost you money to keep it right. Yeah it costs you space. It costs time. If you've got to ensure it registered whatever put gas in it. It costs you right so you shouldn't think about a key and this is a general question. General answer you should really never think about a car as ana by this and the values go up never you should think about. Can i buy this and own it without getting to hurt right. So like like like when i bought my ferrari my ferrari. I didn't say. Ooh now's the time to buy a three twenty eight because i think they're going up and if i buy this one for this price i'll be able to sell it for fifty percent more. That's like not not not not the mindset at all the mindset was a couple years ago i lost twenty two thousand dollars in eighteen months leasing. A ford focus rs. I bet that. I could buy this old ferrari and over the same period of time lose less. Yeah that's literally the thing. It's i could get hurt less with a cooler car than i could get hurt by having an average middle of the road new car. That's how my mental state works here. I get a lotta easy from people. That are like this question. I want to buy a car that the values gonna go buy a watch. The values go up. We don't always know what values are going to go up but but typically it's not gonna go by that much year forty five hundred dollar investment in this jeep is not all of a sudden gonna be worth fifteen or twenty or thirty or forty or fifty or one hundred thousand dollars. Maybe you put them elbow grease in it and take better photos of it and do a better job listing it and you're able to personally add a thousand dollars or fifteen hundred dollars value right like the guy who sold me my nine eleven. That became the safari. If that guy had spent a thousand dollars on a photographer to shoot that car he wouldn't have been able to sell it to me for the price that i paid for. It would have sold for ten thousand dollars more because all all had to do was photograph in a different light. So it's you can think. About what value do you get out of owning the car and what value can you personally add on the back end. I think you know vintage four by fours are getting more popular like on the on the Optimimistic side we've seen broncos go for lots of money for a long time and now you.

"Of cars each of these airports. I think there's a generational shift. But also i know that i've been in situations of my car's in the shop or something and i'm just like instead of going. How do i solve this. i go. i'll take an uber. Enemy is now a natural instinct to do that. And i think this kind of piggybacks off of that where people go. What do i do if i need to take well. There are other solutions. What if you're using the car. And i need it and you can just patch that up a bit and then share the car but we could definitely get a lincoln co company vehicle. We could share About that that makes sense sharing a car with a few friends college or whatever that makes sense. Yeah i think we believe that will be the biggest opportunity and we also need most of all in cities where it's difficult to bar You don't want to drive around with too many cars. If there you have to friends or family you just share a car among some friends what we also are starting to do which i don't think the. Us it's becoming popular in. Sweden is that you have apartment buildings with fifty apartments and avid garage for ten cars and these cars are parts of the buying of the apartment. Jailing are the owners. Oh that's interesting like Like a homeowners association owned management owned cars. I could see that being cool. Because you don't necessarily you know that like you said it's a use case thing. I think that could be very cool. Not that here. I'll say but it is a good idea. It's especially a problem because in in los angeles or we live in a lot of other cities in america there. Really slow on the ev infrastructure. You know and and there and the the mandates for how many parking spaces you have to have for your apartment buildings in your commercial buildings versus the amount of Charge infrastructure from the cities. It's oftentimes like in conflict and so the ability to have like sharable cars like for an apartment complex will be cool. Were you also here. They don't have a one to one ratio of rooms or apartments two parking spaces so excuse me apartment buildings in los angeles when they built them they. They turned a house into In eight unit building and they put in two parking spaces and everyone just parked on the street and that was fine. Like through the seventy. We'll have numerous parking bill. Park apartment buildings that have to share the same street. Yeah there's not nearly enough surrounds for the the residents sharing group cars would be a good idea. Yeah especially with work from home stuff. Yeah it's cool. Are you allen are you a are you a car enthusiasts or are you more of a solo developer. Here it would be difficult to deny that. I am because i. I've been thirty four years in the car industry so i spent my entire life in the traditional car. Industry ended the last ten years of which i be saying. Why the hell does anything change When i started eighty six the car industry Business model was exactly the same as it is today and actually a century ago it was exactly the same engineering design. Cars built a monopoly factories that we should them to dealers who sell and service them in there for me a disconnect between his same business model at an incredibly.

My parents got like a used eighteen. They didn't get the new one right. Well this is a resume from twenty nine hundred eleven. It's that white. Looks like no that has like a super thing on it. Yeah the profile. Here there's a fender that has like a supra kind of hunch looks really weird. It looks weird exchange. What's the new. Cx nine look like you'll get better than that. Oh that that has revamped interior on that highlander. To now we have the whatever we have the last gen highlander. We've got some leftover. That's got like fucking giant screen on it mazda. Cx nine twenty twenty. One looks conservatively style. Let's get the exterior shot there. I mean the outside looks like a big. Yeah uh five free yes literally looks exactly the same. As if you enlarge the street the interior to it looks comfy very nice forty-five grand for that sure. Good steering wheel. Nice looking steering wheel saying my controls. But they did the They're still trying with the piano. Which looks good in brand new photos you even our press car when the sun hit an angle headlights scratches. It's not good the The other thing about this car. That drove me insane. The the The mazda three anyway. Hopefully the cx nine doesn't have it was that you couldn't scroll through. Xm radio stations individually probably ran into now with a couple of ours launch a car. It's really annoying because it used to was never a problem. Every press car we got. I would just jump on satellite radio. And i'd go one six and just scroll and you can scroll scroll scroll from all knob dominated system which seemed like he was. Yeah but it seemed like you could do it more. And now they're switching to touch where they want to use presets. But i don't know. I i like more than how many presets do most of these cars permit jr twelve or whatever and and this made me a problem for everyone. I think it's a few but still there's enough stations out there that a scrolling feature especially because like if you listen to xm are sirius xm if you like rock music then you're pretty much scrolling through every station in the twenties right. Yeah and are you really just going to preset twenty twenty one twenty two twenty three twenty four hundred dollars. That seems kind of dumb. If you like hip hop you're pretty much scrolling through every station in the forty right you know what i mean so like especially like both of those like us. We're just having a block of twenty stations as a phone bad mood. I'm doing you know octane. In those early thirties. I think it is Late thirty eight thirty. Roughly coincides with your so I did find. There's a way in the in the mazda three and what you have to do is go into a separate menu and you can go to tune to just as tune radio but once you get into tune you don't scroll to tune you scroll once or twice to move it to left or right and then tap tap tap tap tap tap tap to select outlets on the wheel. Yeah so. I moved to like scroll up. Tap tap thirty one thirty two thirty three thirty four now. It turned wants to towards the down arrow tap down twenty nine twenty eight twenty seven. That is dumb literally just recreated a digital version of the button to press the screen but the action is the same. It's not good. You have the wheel. Use the wheel. Just use the wheel since the caveman menu channel. Scroll like why can't we figure that out. I hope it's us. Maybe there's like a deeper menu. Maybe you know mazal reach out and go. Us actually use this wrong. It's not it's gotten better like like let's go back to nineteen ninety-four hypothetically let's say i have a car at westside collector car storage since the nineteen ninety four and hypothetically it uses a blaupunkt system as many european cars of that period right. Pathetically someone took that car to get smogged and hypothetically the smog person disconnected the battery which resets the stereo and asks for a security coat that you have to type in now. if you're the fourth owner say of this car right you don't have that code. Written down somewhere. That stereo is a brick straight up brick done you have to now go on ebay and buy a recovered one for like six hundred dollars. Oh my god. I can't call blaupunkt and be like hey remember. Nineteen four like the dust off the book and they give you know what happens when you call blaupunkt it's a racket they tell you you gotta call you gotta call this other guy. No the i police. We will not find your car. You will call this man and they will find your car. The you to call fe. Don't tell you to call. They just tell you you have to call a third party service. You start googling around and these are all super shady sending your radio and will unlock it for five hundred dollars system..
"visser" Discussed on The Smoking Tire
"In studio. I'm over here now. He now if you're on the video side. I decided to switch sides of the table too big day. I decided that. I'd look better with our logo behind me. Like glowing like an angel as opposed to just with The window behind me. 'cause i sit here i can look at my safari through the window in the cathedral room Later in the show. We're going to have a little chat with the ceo of link and co and a car slash mobility slash really just mobility company. Ally visser And he is going to be very cool. And i know that because in reality we already had this conversation In the meantime zach. And i have been doing some car things. Yeah we see. We got my ferrari back from donnie. You talk about that We we drove on those stein tires. Get in the rain. We were waiting for that. We made the video with the tires and they were good young. Actually for a five hundred tread retire that crazy. That's a really high. Where where's the tread. Wear a ps four us. Two hundred. okay so to twenty. You would expect them to be slippery. Greased up not at all no. They're really not at all. We really good real quickly through the canyons. But we didn't test them in the rain. We did not because in rain. It was post rain than didn't yeah but it did rain later. A lot and i mean. I didn't drive them in the canyons and the rain. Unfortunately but on the normal highways like plenty grip didn't hydroplane there were very big puddles and i saw and heard other cars hydroplaning. Which a little scary. Didn't you tell me that you went to a parking lot and tries to some slides and that it actually had too much wet grip. Yeah there's this giant parking lot. And i was like. Oh this is perfect. No one's here doesn't rain very much. And i go down there. I do a light clutch kick and it just propelled itself forward into the turn. Like really violently all right. You know this is probably not the place to play around over here. And i was disappointed in how much i would. Yeah disappointment lack of slip expecting it to be like the the really hard drift tires. I have and just break loose. And i just went and went right toward this Onramp was like okay. Go home okay. No i mean look they They bought ads with us and so So we were talking about them. But i was a genuinely impinge. Opinions are on. I was impressed with their with their dry cold dry performance. When we went in the canyons. You'll see that video and I'm glad zac enjoy them. The rain enough. Almost you have enjoyed them more. Maybe if they were worse right if they were worse you know. I mean genuine like yes. They send us tires. They've done but i don't have a pretty bad liar of like we were going and you'll see in the video. We're going quickly in the canyons. If are you were you were in. If they had bad grip and bad dry performance we would have found it. Yeah you would have heard screeching tires going for the yellow or something like that and really they were go. We were able to go about as fast as one. Should i think pretty much. Yeah i would say because you know we went from. You're running four rear tires on your car So you running a square stance before on the ps for us and we went to the stock staggered. Set up on this one. Correct not entirely intentionally correct. You forgot to tell me sure. Did i forgot to tell them. Yep and sonorous rather than getting four rear tyres we got the original one so no even if we kept the same michelin's before we would have had less front grip than before. Yes so the trade off I is now that we had a narrower front tire and a five hundred tread. Wear the fact that it's still had that much grip was very good. Yeah i don't think. I didn't feel like i had to adjust my driving style or max the way to put an e. forty three though lot. Yeah lot of steering older cars. In general deering. Yeah from the late ninety and steering racks day or so fast. I mean even like a honda accord. Do the mahnken fully all nine ninety ninety. Yeah yeah yeah. Speaking of which. I have the The new gt four with pdk. It's gorgeous you'll see in the video it is it's Genteel and blue. Which i learned is is a fine of flour to give violet lower. Yeah it's the third. Gt four based press car. That i've had in genteel blue. They paid them all in blue. Yeah the boxster spyder shanty and blue. Gdp it before jet blue. It looks different on the boxer spider but mainly because the open air the buttresses or might have just been not as like shiny new but So here's the thing right. The big question and and i have a video coming out this but depending on the live audience will get Get the bonus. This show might be held until after that video but the live audience will get the lowdown. So here's the thing right. The the the the main dig on. Gt fours gears right. That's the rang right. The gear ratio is not as good as it could be right and so so many people so many people have emailed and shit and been like. Should i wait for the seven. Speed the pdk. Does it fix that problem to which i respond perhaps condescendingly but honestly if you want to drive stick by stick if you want to have an auto by the auto people don't like to hear that because i don't know why they don't like to hear that but to me. It seems pretty obvious. Because the fact that the the gear ratios aren't quite right on the stick doesn't make it bad sports car by any means. I mean the fact that i spent twenty minutes dwelling on third gear. It means the rest of. It's pretty awesome. I'm not. I'm not saying any of the handling is amazing. You know what i mean. The brains are amazing. The shift feel is amazing. The steering like. I'm just talking about this because it i'm.

I specifically asked what about this? Okay. When you ask me about this part of the solution is working into problem. Yeah. And when we work into the problem there, we find the solution. And what about that? Now when we talk about that what you're saying is how do we deal with that? And that's a great question. And what we need to do is focus on this. And that and go across party lines. You know, I notice he come. Yeah. Solution. Into it with that. Really come up with real solutions and real problems, which also become part of the solution.

You were getting really mad when you were when you were on the campaign trail when you before. Before. So okay. So you're in the category of heater. So I'm just saying.

It's only twenty five hundred miles from California to Hawaii. Okay. So it's seventy miles per hour. You're going to be doing it's two days. Yeah, you're driving. I think cross country, but she doesn't trains can go much faster than seventy miles. But I got to build the bridge. That's hurricane proof from from California to Hawaii.

Good reminder that I always listened to stories of other people who from circumstantial standpoint, very little, no resources, you know, no running water, no electricity, some of the most horrific living conditions and the stories of triumph and her surveillance and joy and love where other people have so little. It reminds me of like, yeah, we really do have a choice. Our showing up no matter what's happening around us, and I looked to those people for inspiration.

Wonderful auto or by Visser by aggravates to know people story that I used to keep employed to my journeys to keep this back section and it was called when I was okay anyway. And what I mean by that, but those moments, I was sure it was not okay. And then some act of grace or some person or something. So far beyond my control just made it all work anyway. Those turning points that we think are the worst that actually are the best and travel does that for me, there's many times when I travel, where am I? Okay. That's a bad decision. I'm pretty much not okay right now. And it's like some stranger grace, you know, gives me back on track or. That's right. You know, shows new. I'm supposed to to go or feeds me, or I went through an exercise once and we were asked to go out into the world and not speak, but only asked one of two questions. One was, will you help me the others. Will you feed me? And we were out for quite a long time, and I was surprised with those two questions where I didn't know where I was. I didn't know how to get back to where we're supposed to be and just asking if I was hungry, will you feed me? I couldn't believe the people that gave me food just asking people, will you help me? And everybody was like sure whether you would you need. And when you get down to the perspective, you're, we haven't thought about this for years. You're reminded me of this is when I think is all doom and gloom. I'm thinking I have to solve it in forgetting that I have all this incredible people around me that will help some may mom when she pass away. Let's who lasted vice and she said, go for help. Okay. She said, I'm outta here, but you go for help if you ever. Again, I said, I am. I gonna do without you. She said, oh, if you ever need something, just go for help. I'm like, okay, that was the drugs talking, but other things won't leave. Our listeners with is been such a pleasure. Oh, just really those. I think the two everything's figure out because that is perfect for when you have dreams that just kind of outside your current capabilities, you're like, I don't know how I'm gonna do that. Remember everything is figure out -able. It's also so useful when the shit hits the fan and you have no idea how you're gonna climb out of it. Everything is figure out keeps you very calm. It's something that you could share with team members. When again, things go wrong and things go sideways and make a left turn, and you're like, whoa, did not expect that that mantra and swell as clarity comes from engagement, not thought if you can imbed those two into your beautiful consciousness, they will serve you for life.
