Hoy en Día a Día, comenzamos conversando con Javier Maza, analista y consultor político, sobre la demanda del expresidente Donald Trump para mantener ocultos unos documentos sobre el asalto al Capitolio: “Es muy probable que hayan documentos en los que Trump o no hizo lo que le tocaba hacer como presidente en un momento tan grave como fue el asalto del 6 de enero, o hizo o dijo cosas que no debió como jefe de Estado”. El corresponsal de Associated Press en América Latina, Joshua Goodman, nos habló sobre la primera audiencia de Alex Saab ante la justicia estadounidense: “Saab tiene dos procedimientos legales que le tocan: nombrar a un abogado permanente y declararse culpable o no… Es casi seguro que va a declararse no culpable en su primera audiencia. Eso es algo que hacen casi todos los acusados, pero después empiezan a ver las evidencias y más adelante pueden o no cambiar su decisión”, explicó. También nos atendió el periodista de La Estrella de Panamá, José Arcia, para hablarnos sobre el rechazo a las reformas electorales aprobadas esta semana por la Asamblea Nacional de Panamá: “Uno de los puntos clave es la equidad de género. La propuesta buscaba garantizar que hubiese participación de la mujer en un 50-50. Y la Asamblea le pone trabas para evitar esto”, dijo, y expuso: “El veto a estas reformas no sería total, porque lo que está pidiendo el Tribunal Electoral sería un veto parcial de estos artículos más polémicos”. Desde Bogotá nos atendió el abogado y analista político internacional Miguel Andrés Fierro Pinto, quien nos habló sobre la condena de la CorteIDH al Estado colombiano por el caso de Jineth Bedoya: “En el año 2000, durante la disputa entre grupos armados en la cárcel La Modelo, Bedoya iba a ir a hacer una entrevista, pero tristemente la engañaron, torturaron y violaron dentro del mismo penal”, contó. Pinto explicó: “La CorteIDH ordenó una serie de medidas, entre ellas continuar con las investigaciones penales que se llevan a cabo en el marco del caso”. La periodista del diario ABC, Gabriela Ponte, nos habló sobre el caso de Hugo ‘El Pollo' Carvajal: “Carvajal tiene congelada la extradición a EE.UU, puesto que el 27 de octubre tiene que presentarse como testigo ante el juez para aportar información sobre la causa que se ha abierto sobre la financiación de Podemos… Al parecer el relato de lo que vivió Carvajal mientras fue jefe del DGCIM acompaña y da detalles muy específicos sobre la financiación de Podemos. Por eso el juez reabre la causa”, explicó. Y para cerrar, el codirector del Centre for Postcolonial Studies de Goldsmiths de la Universidad de Londres, Francisco Carballo, nos habló sobre el asesinato del diputado británico David Amess: “Sabemos que el diputado estaba atendiendo a sus electores, y un miembro del público lo atacó”, dijo. Carballo expresó: “Este es el segundo asesinato de un miembro del parlamento en 5 años, y está haciendo que la gente se cuestione si es factible tener estos encuentros tan cercanos con los diputados”.

Let's Go Brandon and more on today's CrossPolitic Daily Newsbrief. I'm Toby Sumpter and today is October 12, 2021. What do you do when you're a Christian University -- say Liberty University -- and you really want to join in the trend, but you're a Christian University? Play during opening music: 0:00-0:06 FEMA Failed to Investigate Half of the Sexual Misconduct Allegations https://justthenews.com/accountability/watchdogs/federal-sexcapades-fema-failed-properly-investigate-half-its-sexual Turns out FEMA is like the worst youth group missions trip on steroids. The U.S. government's disaster recovery agency received more than 300 allegations of workplace sexual misconduct and harassment from 2012 to 2018 and failed to properly investigate more than half of them, according to an internal watchdog report. This article says that the report “exposes the limits [of] the #MeToo movement has met inside the federal bureaucracy.” The limits of the #metoo movement… The article continues: The Federal Emergency Management Agency's problems extend beyond proper handling of complaints, as a survey of its workforce exposed a potentially pervasive hostile work environment, according to a report issued this month by the Homeland Security Department's inspector general. "One-third (255 of 765) of the employees who responded to our questionnaire indicated they had experienced sexual harassment or sexual misconduct, but they did not report it because they did not believe the allegations would be investigated," the inspector general reported. "Unaddressed sexual harassment and sexual misconduct in the workplace can have negative effects on employees, including decreased performance, low morale, and increased turnover," the report added [stating the screaming obvious.] They also noted that if you can't breathe it is not conducive to a long life. Also from the report: "The agency mustered a poor response to the flood of allegations," investigators said. These people are hilarious. Get it? Flood of allegations? FEMA? Hurricanes and floods and... "We were unable to determine whether FEMA properly handled 153 of these allegations, because it could not provide complete investigative and disciplinary files," the report said. "For allegations that had complete files available, at times we were unable to determine whether FEMA conducted an investigation. Finally, we found FEMA did not document whether it reviewed some sexual harassment-related Equal Employment Opportunity complaints to determine whether potential employee misconduct occurred." Look, I don't really trust the report -- since I have little confidence that biblical standards for evidence, testimony, and witnesses were follwed , but I do know that we live in a debauched culture, where public school sex education courses encourage pagan kids to do whatever feels good, and then we are somehow shocked when they grow up and do just that. I mean is Darwin right or not? Are we just highly evolved animals or not? 1:11-1:18 But of course rather than completely defunding FEMA as we ought to and letting the states and counties take care of themselves, we will no doubt create another government agency that is tasked with studying the sex habits of government employees. I actually do think this is tied to youth group mission trip culture. While I don't object to very carefully crafted mission trips, I'm generally against the whole lot because I think there's a high degree of likelihood that a bunch of hormonal teenagers can actually do a lot more harm than good. And I also think that those who are most invested in a community are in the best position to help their own communities. They have to live with the results of all their help. I mean I really do feel for Haiti-- for example. But we should all be looking at Haiti as a cautionary tale. How many millions were poured into that country after the earthquakes? And how's it doing? A complete mess? Right. Ditto for FEMA. Guitar AD Have you always wanted to play guitar but didn't know where to start?

Doug Wilson Responds to the Maricopa County Audit https://dougwils.com/books-and-culture/s7-engaging-the-culture/maricopa-pudding.html “So I will look sideways—squinty-eyed and scowling—at this particular election to my dying day. And I will do so with sunshine in my conscience. Anomalies do require explanation. As Thoreau once put it, “Some circumstantial evidence is very strong, as when you find a trout in the milk.” You know, like a turtle on top of a fence post. When you are driving down a country road, and you happen to see a turtle on top of a fence post, the situation is clear, and the first thing that comes to mind is President Biden. You understand he didn't get there by himself, he really doesn't belong there, he doesn't know what to do as long as he's up there, and all you want to do is help the poor little guy get down. This election in Maricopa is like that. Not everything in this mess goes together. It is like you went to dig into your vanilla Maricopa pudding, made fresh just this morning, and you discover that it is resting on a bed of cole slaw.” Pastor Wilson also linked to this doozy of a conversation that happened in Maricopa County regarding the deleted/archived files from the voting machines that audit did not have access to. Play Audio: 0:00-1:54 When the voting machine records were subpoenaed, they just deleted/archived certain files and figured that the subpoena didn't apply to those records. Bring back my laugh track: HAHAHAHA! Former Pentagon Softwar Chief Says China Has Won the Tech War https://nypost.com/2021/10/11/pentagon-software-chief-nicolas-chaillan-resigns/?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=NYPTwitter&utm_medium=SocialFlow From the New York Post: The Pentagon's former software chief said he quit because China has already won the tech war guaranteeing global dominance — with some US government systems mere “kindergarten level” in comparison. Nicolas Chaillan, 37, told the Financial Times on Sunday that there is “good reason to be angry” at the US failing to rise to China's cyber threat, even fearing that it puts his children's future at risk. “We have no competing fighting chance against China in 15 to 20 years. Right now, it's already a done deal; it is already over, in my opinion,” Nicolas Chaillan, 37, told the paper. Chaillan — who was the Pentagon's first chief software officer — said China will dominate the future of the world by controlling everything from media narratives to geopolitics. He claimed that the US, like Beijing, should have prioritized artificial intelligence, machine learning and cyber capabilities over traditional military spending like building new fighter jets. “Whether it takes a war or not is kind of anecdotal,” he told the paper of his prediction of China's route to future world dominance. He attacked Google for not working on AI with the US Defense Department, while Chinese companies are obliged to work with Beijing. The US is also wasting time debating the ethics of AI while China makes “massive investment” and eschews such concerns, he said. Some US government cyber-defense systems are so dated, they are merely at “kindergarten level,” he insisted. “While we wasted time in bureaucracy, our adversaries moved further ahead,” Chaillan wrote in a scathing letter on LinkedIn last month when first announcing his resignation. “At this point, I am just tired of continuously chasing support and money to do my job,” he said of the pioneering Pentagon job that was “probably the most challenging and infuriating of my entire career.” Chaillan told the Financial Times that he plans in the coming weeks to testify to Congress about the Chinese cyber threat to US supremacy, including in classified briefings. [This] comes as a new poll shows that about 9 in 10 Americans are at least somewhat concerned about hacking, while about two-thirds say they are very or extremely concerned. The poll by the Pearson Institute and the Associated Press shows that roughly three-quarters also eye the Chinese and Russian governments as major threats to the cybersecurity of the US government. I mean, if we put this together with what we've already covered on today's newsbrief, there are troubling trends. Maricopa county voting officials have no concerns about deleting (I mean archiving) files before turning them over to an audit. And our Federal Emergency Management Agency cannot even manage the emergency of sexual misconduct in its own ranks. Put that together, and how likely does it seem that some of our governmental tech programs are kindergarten level compared to China? I would say the chances are pretty high. Remember Solomon: when he went in for all the sex, he had to build altars and shrines for all the gods of his wives and concubines. Instead of using his strength to continue to build productive and useful things, his strength was used to destroy his family and nation. Is America strong? Sure. But we are pouring our strength down the tubes. But let's not end on a sour note. Remember God is God, and this is His world. China's so-called strength isn't real strength either. As it happens, pure coercive power will crush LGBT flower power every day of the week, but both are false versions of power. Neither will ultimately work. Both are parasitic on Christian virtues. Both have to assume certain creational realities are real and true. They have to deny Darwin and believe that there is order and goodness in the universe in order to maintain a semblance of coherence.

From February 17 to February 24, 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower was in Palm Springs, California, on what was described to the public as a “vacation.” On February 20, he disappeared from public view and rumors spread to the point that the headline, “Pres. Eisenhower died tonight of a heart attack in Palm Springs.,” appeared on the Associated Press newswire. The story was removed two minutes later and the AP reported that he was still alive. UFOlogists have speculated on where he was that day, and some have come to the conclusion that Eisenhower went to Muroc Air Force Base for a secret meeting with alien visitors.The earliest mention of Eisenhower and aliens being at Muroc appears in a letter from Gerald Light to Meade Layne, founder of the Borderland Sciences Research Association. Now a foundation, BSRF has preserved the letter, and the date on the link is April 16, 1954. The letter opens with this:Read more →

This is the amazing authentic story of my friend Kim West, who comes on the podcast to reveal seven mantras about how we must follow our own intuition and choice for optimal health. Kim West is a mother of two daughters and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.

Mantras: Mantra #1: Everyone needs a different amount of sleep. Mantra #2:   Major medical episodes, such as surgeries, can turn sleep on its head and cause a ripple effect. Mantra #3:  Wellness (sleep included) is not an applied formula. Mantra #4:  Intuition is the key to decoding your own wellness formula. Mantra #5: “Taking a pill” can be done physically, energetically, or metaphorically. Mantra #6: Don't  let anyone stop you from digging deeper when it comes to learning more about your own health.

Some of the factors we considered included personal and corporate tax policies, rates of business formation and hiring for new businesses, funding availability, and business survival rates. We ranked all 50 states and the District of Columbia based upon an aggregated score considering all these factors.” The Postal Service said it is changing estimated delivery times for first-class mail as part of it's 10-year strategic plan for improving service. https://www.krem.com/article/news/nation-world/usps-shipping-standards-change-october-1/417-79eb3fc6-9a5d-4f11-a2d7-28e2858317eb “The USPS is changing the standard on how fast you get your mail, with a slowdown that starts Oct. 1. The Postal Service is creating new service standards, which will mean longer first-class mail delivery times and cuts to post office hours. Starting Friday, first class mail may take as long as 5 days to reach destinations in the contiguous US. That's a change from the previous standard of 3 days. USPS said that standard led to an over-reliance on air travel, which is more costly that ground transportation. The Postal Service will increase time‐in‐transit expectations by 1 or 2 days for certain mail that needs to travel longer distances. If you're shipping something within 139 miles, you can expect it to take 2 days. For anything traveling up to 930 miles, expect 3-day shipping. Times go up to 4 or 5 days for anything over 930 miles traveled. Officials say most mail will be unaffected, but they recommend planning ahead and sending first class mail early, if it has to travel far distances.” Leave it to the government to define “improving service” as actually lowering standards of service.

Play Clip: Crazy Aussie Bureaucrat: Play Clip: Virus surge hits New England despite high vaccination rates https://apnews.com/article/coronavirus-pandemic-health-pandemics-vermont-d25aae90b2dda65b3d1c2c0d5d00156c?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP&utm_campaign=SocialFlow “Despite having the highest vaccination rates in the country, there are constant reminders for most New England states of just how vicious the delta variant of COVID-19 is. Hospitals across the region are seeing full intensive care units and staff shortages are starting to affect care. Public officials are pleading with the unvaccinated to get the shots. Health care workers are coping with pent-up demand for other kinds of care that had been delayed by the pandemic. “I think it's clearly frustrating for all of us,” said Michael Pieciak, the commissioner of the Vermont Department of Financial Regulation who monitors COVID-19 statistics for the state. “We want kids to be safe in school, we want parents not to have to worry about their child's education and health.” Even though parts of New England are seeing record case counts, hospitalizations and deaths that rival pre-vaccine peaks, largely among the unvaccinated, the region hasn't seen the impact the delta variant wave has wrought on other parts of the country. According to statistics from The Associated Press, the five states with the highest percentage of a fully vaccinated population are all in New England, with Vermont leading, followed by Connecticut, Maine, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. New Hampshire is 10th. According to the AP data, full vaccination rates across the six New England states range from a high of 69.4% in Vermont to 61.5% in New Hampshire. Despite the relatively high vaccination rates — the U.S. as a whole is averaging 55.5% — there are still hundreds of thousands of people across the region who, for one reason or another, remain unvaccinated and vulnerable to infection. Now, a Rhode Island official said he didn't think the 70% vaccination goal, once touted as the level that would help end the pandemic in the state, is enough. “What we've learned with delta and looking beyond delta, is because that's where our focus is as well, to really reach those levels of vaccination, to give you that true population level protection, you need to be in excess of 90%,” said Tom McCarthy, the executive director of the Rhode Island Department of Health COVID Response Unit.” Note what the AP article goes on to say: “Head of UMass Memorial Health, the largest health system in central Massachusetts, said recently that regional hospitals were seeing nearly 20 times more COVID-19 patients than in June and there isn't an ICU bed to spare. Case counts in Vermont, which has continually boasted about high vaccination and low hospitalization and death rates, are the highest during the pandemic. Hospitalizations are approaching the pandemic peak from last winter and September was Vermont's second-deadliest month during the pandemic. On Sept. 22, Maine had nearly 90 people in intensive care units, a pandemic peak for the state. Maine also recently passed 1,000 deaths since the start of the pandemic.” Closing This is Gabriel Rench with Crosspolitic News.

What a Creep: Alex Kelly Season 12, Episode 9 “The Preppy Rapist”  Alex Kelly was considered a golden boy in his hometown of Darien, CT. Born to a wealthy family and growing up in a peak New England fancy neighborhood (meaning rich & white) he was good-looking, athletic, and popular.  That all changed in February 1986 when the HS senior was arrested for suspicion of two rapes of girls in the span of four days.  The Dairen police and district attorney decided to charge and try him for both at the same time which worried his family that he was being railroaded. So Alex decided to take off for parts unknown rather than face the consequences. Nine years later he was caught and brought back to trial. His story is bat shit insane and remains so to this day.  He was dubbed “The Preppy Rapist” by the media much like Robert Chambers in 1986 was called “The Preppy Killer” for the killing of Jennifer Levin. The media works overtime to make white men likable. UGH! Trigger Warnings are sexual assault and delayed justice.

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, do you remember post-Lewinsky, in the second term of Bill Clinton, that AP ran a series of stories — picked up by all of the other Drive-By Media — telling us that lying was good? ‘Little' lies were helpful. They spared people's feelings. ‘Everybody does it.' It actually has redeeming social quality and value, if not done too much, but even then, you know, within reason, lying is actually a well-calculated way to get through life, causing yourself less pain and, obviously, others less pain. Well, you won't believe this. So Clinton appears on Fox News Sunday this past Sunday — Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday — so it's four days ago, and I have here, ladies and gentlemen, in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers a story from our buddies at the Associated Press by Jocelyn Noveck: ‘Is It Cool to Lose Your Cool? … That's one of the questions of the week as we evaluate and re-evaluate Bill Clinton's finger-pointing, knee-poking interview with Chris Wallace on Fox. The first debate, of course, was whether Clinton had actually lost it at all — a ‘full-bore tantrum,' one conservative columnist called it — or knew exactly what he was doing. But splitting the difference for a moment, the interesting issue becomes…' I kid you not. (laughing) I can't say this with a straight face. ‘Can public anger in politics, business, and elsewhere be a good thing?' (Laughing.) Yes! Let's have more road rage. Let's have more threatening of journalists. You hear what Ailes said? Ailes came out and said this was ‘an assault or an attack on all journalists.' He said Clinton was totally over the top. I'm not kidding you, folks.

Industries like insurance, finance, and media have all found impactful ways to apply symbolic AI and deep/machine learning to common pain points when taking unstructured language data from documents, social content, and emails. By extracting sentiment and the deeper meanings of words that only humans can do, language can be turned into data, and actionable insights for a wide range of use cases can be drawn from it. Walt Mayo, CEO of expert.ai, the natural language processing AI company trusted by The Associated Press, Dow Jones, Gannett, and other top brands, joins me on the Tech Talks Daily podcast. We discuss how combining a symbolic approach to AI with machine learning can form an innovative hybrid model. Walt talks about the difference between symbolic AI and deep learning/machine learning and what kinds of use cases are typically applied together. We also discuss the strengths of each and what organizations can gain by combining them. Finally, we discuss how a hybrid approach addresses the "black box" problem in AI; and scaling existing human biases.

Today, we're having a conversation with Ed Coambs. He is a financial therapist and also the author of "The Healthy Love & Money Way". We're talking about attachment styles and how they impact your financial well-being. And, Ed is the perfect guy to introduce us to what that is all about and how it could be affecting your relationships both in your intimate relationships as well as partner, family, you name it. Enjoy... Edward Coambs is one of only 50 financial therapists in the U.S. Internationally recognized thought leader in financial therapy. Cited by the Wall Street Journal, the Associated Press, Time, and CNBC. Master's degrees in business, counseling, and financial planning and is a licensed marriage and family therapist, certified financial planner, and Certified Financial Therapist. Working as a financial advisor he realized that financial plans, budgets, investments, and wealth management isn't enough without addressing the deeper psychological aspects of the person. Without it, people still made the same poor decisions. To change lives and empower his clients they needed to address their core beliefs about money. He helps couples feel like a “team” when it comes to their relationship and their finances. He shared these insightful notes: "It's the same thing with our attachment systems, right? It has all these moving pieces. We know there are predictable ways that it can become injured or impaired. But we also know that humans are wired towards restoring health. As part of our survival, to what our body wants to move towards health. We just have to create the right environment for that. And that's where the coaching that you do, the therapy that I provide, one of the foundational pieces is safety and acceptance, right? That non-judgemental stance creates a psychological space of safety to really look at what's going on. And what happens in our financial life is we often are perceiving this psychological or physical space of safety, to be honest with what we're really feeling and have a reasonable expectation that someone is actually going to understand what's going on..."

The Taliban is settling back into power in Afghanistan, a month after their victory. Since then, the militant group has named an interim cabinet and ministry that's entirely male and mostly Pashtun, and in the latest gruesome display of their approach to justice, they hung a dead body from a crane at a busy roundabout in the city of Herat over the weekend. But despite the brutality and the lack of female representation, talk that the Taliban is different from the 90s persists. So what is the evidence for that so far? Today on The Signal we speak with the Chief of the Associated Press bureau in Afghanistan, Kathy Gannon. We ask her what daily life has been like under the Taliban already, 20 years after they last ruled one of the world's poorest countries, and what may lie ahead.

Dirt bikes do not belong in New York City and more. This is Toby Sumpter. Today is Tuesday, September 21, 2021. Thousands of Haitians Seeking Asylum in Del Rio https://apnews.com/article/health-mexico-texas-caribbean-immigration-56f1f0093039e2a43e128b7ef0015485 AP: More than 6,000 Haitians and other migrants have been removed from an encampment at a Texas border town, U.S. officials said Monday as they defended a strong response that included immediately expelling migrants to their impoverished Caribbean country and using horse patrols to stop them from entering the town. Calling it a “challenging and heartbreaking situation,” Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued a stark warning: “If you come to the United States illegally, you will be returned. Your journey will not succeed, and you will be endangering your life and your family's life.” Mexico was busing Haitian migrants from Ciudad Acuña Sunday evening, according to Luis Angel Urraza, president of the local chamber of commerce. Mexico's immigration agency did not immediately respond to a request for comment. But a federal official told The Associated Press on Sunday that the plan was to take the migrants to Monterrey, in northern Mexico, and Tapachula, in the south, with flights to Haiti from those cities to begin in coming days. Mayorkas and U.S. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz said they would look into agents on horseback using what appeared to be whips and their horses to push back migrants at the river between Ciudad Acuña, Mexico, and Del Rio, Texas, where thousands of migrants remain camped around a bridge. Mayorkas said 600 Homeland Security employees, including from the Coast Guard, have been brought to Del Rio, a city of about 35,000 people roughly 145 miles (230 kilometers) west of San Antonio. He said he has asked the Defense Department for help in what may be one of the swiftest, large-scale expulsions of migrants and refugees from the United States in decades. He also said the U.S. would increase the pace and capacity of flights to Haiti and other countries in the hemisphere. The number of migrants at the bridge peaked at 14,872 on Saturday, said Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, a labor union that represents agents. “When it was reported that were flights going back to Haiti, it got around almost immediately,” he said. “There has been talk that some of them are going to go back (to Mexico) but we have not seen very much movement.” Haitians have been migrating to the U.S. in large numbers from South America for several years, many having left their Caribbean nation after a devastating 2010 earthquake. After jobs dried up from the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, many made the dangerous trek by foot, bus and car to the U.S. border, including through the infamous Darien Gap, a Panamanian jungle. Some of the migrants at the Del Rio camp said the recent devastating earthquake in Haiti and the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse make them afraid to return to a country that seems more unstable than when they left. “In Haiti, there is no security,” said Fabricio Jean, a 38-year-old Haitian who arrived in Texas with his wife and two daughters. “The country is in a political crisis.” These really are heart-breaking scenarios. On the one hand, Christians are called to be open-handed and generous with the strangers and foreigners. On the other hand, we are not called to be open-handed foolishly, in a way that destroys our ability our duties, like protecting our families and neighbors from criminals. On the third hand, we have created a hand-out nanny state that invites this kind of mass migration, and on the fourth hand, despite all our problems, America is still a land with a lot more stability and opportunity than many other places. Why? Because there is still a semblance of Christianity here. Do not tell me that Christianity is not political. Christianity creates stable families, businesses, and nations. But we are fast throwing all of that away. Do not think that we cannot become a Haiti.

Bristol Motor Speedway delivered a thrilling weekend of playoff racing and spotters TJ Majors, Brett Griffin and Freddie Kraft are in the Bojangles Studio to react to everything that went down under the lights. With tempers flaring and multiple heated arguments post-race, the crew has plenty to talk about after the first round of the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs concluded. Shades of old Bristol showed throughout the tripleheader of races at the iconic short track and the guys discuss why that was and what to expect moving forward. Given the exciting racing on the concrete surface, many asked if it is still necessary to run the spring Bristol race weekend on dirt. Hear the spotters weigh in and what they wish to do instead of taking away a concrete surface Bristol race. As the intensity picked up late in the event on Saturday night, many playoff contenders suffered cut tires that jeopardized their chance at the championship. Hear how they recovered and what is expected to happen in similar situations with the Next Gen car. Chase Elliott was among those who suffered from a cut tire and he showed his frustration by taking a swipe at race leader Kevin Harvick later in the race. That then led to Elliott maintaining his line as a lapped car in front of Harvick for the remainder of the night as Elliott's teammate Kyle Larson drove by to win. This then sparked their heated confrontation post-race. The spotters break down the situation from both sides, provide insight from Harvick's manger Josh Jones who was in the middle of it all and share what they think might happen moving forward. They are also joined by Associated Press motorsports journalist Jenna Fryer to discuss what happened when Kevin Harvick and others told a media member to stop filming the conversation. Friday night's Xfinity Series race delivered plenty of drama too, as leaders AJ Allmendinger and Austin Cindric crashed while crossing the finish line. The guys discuss the incident and how the regular season championship came to be decided in dramatic fashion. In the Truck Series race, Chandler Smith's pass on Sheldon Creed for the win fueled a fiery debate. Hear what the gang thinks about Smith's move and how he passed his teammate John Hunter Nemechek a few laps later. The 2022 Cup Series schedule was released last week and the spotters analyze the major changes coming next season. Hear their opinions on the Clash at the LA Coliseum, racing on Easter Sunday, one off-week the entire year, Pocono losing its doubleheader, Gateway's Cup date, and Homestead returning to the playoffs. Then in Reaction Theatre, fans are fired up discussing Kevin Harvick leaving his helmet on, other people getting in the way of the drivers post-race, Chase Elliott's repeat offenses, plus two new songs.
