AIDS seems to have been slow in coming to the southwest of Haiti, that devastated area UNICEF now doing assessments, saying that there are now 500,000 Children without adequate shelter without food without clean water.

There was no aid. There were no Tark's. There's no water food being brought to them. There's no insurance whatsoever, and they said they didn't expect to get any not from the government.

"It's it goes back to. It's a it's a wonderful lesson that i actually learned from my friend. Mike weiss who was in the entertainment business for a long time and and one of the things he told me was in the early days. He said whenever you can he called it. He said. Use your juice. He said whatever juice you've got us it he said because that's the key and what he met by. That was whatever juice you end up building up right. Whatever little brand you get whatever platform you have whatever company you're working for whatever friends you know whatever networking you have. That's your juice and you have to use it. And so that's a great example of where jason bateman and those. Three guys are using their juice. They're using you know they. They didn't buy the podcast because the content those people and they and they didn't get the multiple based on. I'm sure they didn't get the multiple based on solely the audience and they and many ways. They got the multiple that they got. Because it's jason bateman and will arnett. Right i mean that's that's that's part of it. They use their juice in order to to bump that up. It's the same thing with you. Know when george clooney goes off and and makes casa migos tequila casa migos. Tequila is not great. Let's be quite frank. It's not great tequila. But because it came from george clooney and he built that narrative around at about how it got created and he built it for his friends and it was all this wonderful thing. And it's home grown and it's got that celebrity aura around it using his juice. That's why it sells for hundreds of millions of dollars as a brand so use your juice. That's a it's a. it's a great lesson. Whatever it takes right. Whatever takes it takes. Don't feel bad about leveraging connections or small -tunities that you feel that you shouldn't 'cause you wanna do it on your own or whatever you do everything anything everything that's exactly so there you go there you have it all right.

"The ninety nine two thousand. Everyone was so excited. Stock market was going crazy. And i sat in a meeting. It was the b hag to one billion dollars and we were a three hundred million dollar company at the time or something like that. How do we get to one billion by whatever two thousand five and everyone's talking about you and that's exactly what buzzfeed is talking about. They want to get to this one billion number as quickly as possible with highly profitable in every time i see this. I get a little bit nervous because you're talking about scale it's it's how it's all. It's it's all these big brands fall into. How big can we get. How much can we do. How many social media platforms can we be on. It's like yep. What i lived this i so my story on the same side was in nine hundred ninety seven. I was hired by a little web development firm here in los angeles called w three design which was forty five people and at the time one of the larger web development agencies in los angeles by the time i moved because i was living on the east coast at the time by the time i moved back to la and got there. They had actually been acquired by a little company called us web which us web for those of you. Who are old enough to remember was a roll up. It was basically the nineteen ninety nine version of back. It was basically one company that was entirely made up of little agencies all across as holding company for all these little tiny agencies all across the world to get scale to call themselves a billion dollar consulting firm which then they started to say. Okay we need to expand so they started to build in other scale ability and acquire you know other parts of other consulting organizations other technology firms other software firms. They basically created this monster called march. I which ultimately became a giant roll up that went public and they took that company public and of course never did anything other than operate. Two thousand little companies across you know and of course that went about as well as you think it might and it completely imploded And it's just not a terribly successful model. It just doesn't work very well and the reason. It doesn't work very well because all these little things don't work can't get the economies of scale that you think you can you don't get the economy's yet look at it right. They're like oh yeah. We can save money here here here but when it comes down to it it never happens that way. It never really works out very well for these things and you can see it now. Happening with the holding companies in the ad agency world right. All of those companies are operating extensively independently at with each other and in some ways competing with each other in some cases..

But what if we focus on this as a long-term experience digital experience instead of just whenever it comes back it comes back and that's what you're saying right that that would have been a huge opportunity because now you've got multiple platforms instead of. Just how do we take it to the next level. You know what i mean in other words instead of looking at through the you know this i mean i don't wanna know i don't want to get all sort of esoteric and marshall mcluhan knee and all that but but the when we look at digital versus physical instead of saying Digital was a proxy. Right we had to do digital because you know it just didn't work and that by the way i mean everything from the pick it up you know the direct to consumer movement of you know in terms of retail and how you went to the best buy and you sat in the parking lot and you had your text you know and all this. That was all digitally enabled right and and not the best. I'm not throwing best buy under the bus here. But but those kinds of programs are the ones that i'm seeing get killed now and replaced with. Hey the stores open right and so let's go back into the store and forget about all of those digital experiences that we created many of which were really really great and again. I'm not mentioning this specific experience. Because i know something about best buy. They're killing that program or whatever. But i mean in as as as an example of that i see many companies killing some of these new initiatives that they launched in twenty twenty to act as a proxy for some sort of physical whether it's e commerce whether it's a content marketing whether it's some sort of customer how to experience training all these things are now that the brands are going..

Explaining Biden's Tax Plan
"Biden administration agenda. He has several tax proposals, and so there will be increases on income tax, especially for the those making over the middle income range all the way up to the high income earners. He is going to do away with pretax contributions to 41 case. It looks like And make you report all of that on your 10 40 tax return, And then he's going to give you a credit for people making more than the average American that is going to cost you tax because the tax credit is not going to be the same amount that you would have had. Had you been able to this put in the pre tax dollars in the higher tax brackets, Okay? The capital gain. Tax rates are gonna double and he's going to do away with the step up in basis on long term capital gains. That would mean if you inherited a million dollar rental property that your folks bought 30 years ago for 250,000. And it doubled the 500,000 and 15 years and that 500,000 doubled to a million and another 15 years and you inherited and you sell it for a million won under the trump tax. Cuts, you would only have to pay 20% in federal capital gain tax on 100,000 What you sold it for over above what it was worth when you inherited it. Now there is still a surtax for Obamacare. What is it 2.8% of whatever on then you have many states will charge a capital gain tax rate to so many people pay more like 28%, or 30% in capital gains rates between the federal and state. Well. Biden wants to increase that upto ordinary income rates of 39.6% from 20%. So that's almost double. But you do away with the step up in basis. That means if you inherited that million dollar rental property from your folks You're gonna have to pay tax on the entire gain. And at 40%, you're gonna pay 400,000 instead of 20,000 and tax. So these are the things that are taking place and also the estate tax. He's going to take that from about 40% of toe 67% and probably lower the threshold when you start paying that tax. Heaven forbid he doesn't take it down all the way to the million where Hillary Clinton wanted to take it back down to, But many states will tax you on what you leave behind as an inheritance on every dollar over a million bucks, Okay?

Some Scientists Question W.H.O. Inquiry Into the Coronavirus Pandemic’s Origins
"About the recent commission that was looking into the origin of covert 19 over in China. Specifically, Jamie, you know one thing I want to ask you do you could see that there's a real possibility that we Are ultimately never going to get Maybe the data and information from the Wuhan lab that will ultimately maybe tell us whether or not it was a lab accident or whether it was truly Transmission from bats and animals. Yeah. No, I think that's quite likely and Anyone who's been paying close attention that China has engaged in a massive cover up over the last year, they immediately started destroying samples, eliminating or moving access to records. Imprisoning journalists and others asking questions, and they established a universal gag order not allow any of their scientists to speak publicly will write anything about the origins of the of the pandemic. And so the question is not is China engaged in an active car up to try to office Kate? The issue of the origins of the pandemic is should we play along? And that's why In open letter, but we've said that the world community needs to articulate what castigation looks like. We'll kind of access to records, samples and personnel. We need in order to find where called it comes from nights. I think it's almost it's very, very clear to that question is answerable thing. China is going to sell. Jeez, sorry about that. We've been in each in this cover up are bad here, is it but Let's set the standard and tells them tell the world I will not help and that's on them. And we shouldn't start with the compromise. If it is ultimately case that China is covering stuff and again, you know We? We don't know what this this juncture on day two be fair, But I do wonder Is this just not though? Potentially, You know another indication, Jamie, you'd have talked about this a lot, the complicated relationship that is the world with China. To be quite honest going forward, and so you know. Companies. Major companies want to be involved in China, and they're willing to maybe look the other way government's willing to look the other way. If there are, you know policies that they're uncomfortable with on this is just how it is. I mean, that's that is partly right. You mean China is a very big, very important country. There are areas where really need t collaborate Actively China even whether we like it or not. The betterment of the world. But my view do on this. And Eric, you and I have discussed over the carol is that you have to have standard right own behavior. In those interact can't be lowest common denominator relationships. It has to be. Oh, well. Here's the standard of what we believe and when so many people are dying. I'm a terrible enough believe totally of will pandemic. We have to be able to add very least the tough questions where this comes from, for all of our good, including the good of the people, China right exactly. But you also know, too, that it's kind of have been an interesting political global political world where China has also pointed the finger at the United States to say, you know, what are you doing to your people? You know what I mean? It's just kind of an interesting time here. It's true and they're not wrong in every ace. I mean, they're all kinds of terrible things. And whatever the origin of the pandemic, there is a reason why Nine people have died of covert 19 in Taiwan, and we're over 500,000 here in the United States. That's not the origin. It's the In many ways they're significantly The response our government, so there's a lot of fingers to point, including it ourselves, but we should just we need to be honest. When pointing in all directions. Hey, listen, we just have about 40 seconds left her. Do you think at this point to maybe a key conversation is to have is to identify other high risk lab research. That's being done on pathogens so that we just in case we make sure where aware of this and just got about 40 seconds. Yeah, absolutely. It's Cove. It comes from an accidental Lavely, which I think is most likely origin. But your listeners can go to the guy. Jamie Metzl dot com site, read the evidence and judge for themselves.

It's like tons and tons of different greens and spirulina in vitamins and all your vitamins and minerals everything. It's everything in tiny little like sack tastes. Gross it just doesn't gross. It tastes so good to me. And you what is powder and you just kinda mix it with water and you shake it up and you're done exactly what you do yeah But i really like. I mean if i'm so lucky to have a blender a vitamix than it's really really good to put that in with like half a frozen banana on some ice and Ooh you know so we just ran no but then it just tastes like ice cream and kind of has like a sort of vanilla e kind of flavor. I don't know. I swear to your doesn't taste bad people. Look at my drink go. That looks really disgusting. And then i make them taste it and then they're really they're into it. We miss that. They're into it. After having such a you know giving me so much so yeah. We just ran a story about the secrets of lax the airport and so we have this columnist. The kind of goes under cover in these awesome hospitality jobs. I mean i don't know how awesome it is to be a tsa employees. But he did it and one of the things that he was laughing about was the number of little vitamix type lenders. The little bullet ones that people try to their suitcases when they're leaving from. Lax was it. You funny what are they trying to take that in their carry on little blades motorized blade people are sometimes no. I'm not an idiot at all. I would never do that but you don't. You don't carry on right your check luggage kinda gal. I checked luggage. I carry on. I take as much stuff as i can possibly carry everything i love this. Get your maximalist when it comes to packing. Yeah absolutely i wanted to secrets. Why because i i don't like not having what i want and i think it's really boring to have to go buy everything i know. It's like available but half of it isn't and it just makes me happy to know when you live out of a suitcase forever and you travel three hundred days a year when you're touring you bring everything because you're moving constantly and you're busy and it's so awesome to have everything there. I mean. open up one suitcase. And it's basically like a painting studio inside and a recording studio all my stuff. And i like my stuff. I don't want your stuff. I don't want random stuff. I'm my style. I think you'll making a point that people who travel full-time like you have will empathize with that. There's almost there's a sort of hierarchy of people who only do carry on and somehow they can survive that minimally and you know what when you were s people are boring and to your point. There are also consumerist. They don't mind shopping constantly in every single city that they get you the most boring things you know like. I don't wanna do that. I really want to get to somewhere and get going with my life. I that's it and they give you a point here. I think there's a really interesting Counter thought here that like mark was saying it really runs against the grain of a lot of the advice that we get. I think people get fed up impatient about waiting at the luggage carousel but at the end of the day. If you can really settle into a place and feel yourself and feel one with your environment faster than this is totally worth while strategy especially for someone like you that literally lives out of a suitcase. Yeah i don't mind waiting for my bag. So do do you pack the blender. Then i don't have any kind of like cooking supplies. Except for the giants. I'll leave it to like to have a blender or not have a blender. It's okay i can just put the stuff in a bottle and shake it. I don't need i don't need any crazy gear. It's all right. I have a friend who who travels with a waffle maker and that makes me laugh so much. Is this thing yet. we're going on a trip together. And she's like alison. Should i bring the waffle maker stink. No no don't under what were down signs. There's gonna be waffles again like we can find a place that'll mix so you know. I do pack everything. But i'm not that bad. I don't pack the waffle. You draw the line at the waffle iron. I think you've been on with you on that. Okay look you know what. I'm also with you on allison tell. The world about baraka. British listeners of million listeners will already know but informed save everyone else from the next hangover. They might get with baraka. Well i think everyone in england and australia already knows about barack. Oh because it's quite a thing. But when i moved to london when i was twenty i went to my doctor. My doctor said look. You need to drink one of these. You need to dissolve one of these orange discs in water every day. Drink it and you'll never get sick and He's kind of been right. 'cause i've been doing it pretty much since then for a long time. It's been way too long to mention And i really don't get sick. I i rarely get sick. It doesn't work hundred percent of the time but it is again like a multivitamin in a drink. You see how. I like to drink my vitamins. I'ma no flare so quick. I'm sorry. I think there's a hidden benefit here that we're not discussing. Which is that when. I travel my best habit for staying healthy at home. Goes out the window. And that is chugging water. Oh god yes yeah. I got one summer i was in israel and i got clinically dehydrated. Meaning i ended up literally confined to a bed for two weeks. Really i mean pretty much. I was out of friends of friends grandparents house. Nothing i was in forty degree celsius plus heat everyday and drinking a strip water. It wasn't even a reversal to business. Living my life. And i didn't realize the damage that you know just happened by virtue.

"Before we start this week. All you a little weepy. Nikki i another also them a little weepy. But i am a little sad i will say. Why are you me mark. It's the last time that we're going to be in the studio for season two and quite honestly we've just had so much fun. I don't want it to end me. And i'm sure every listener doesn't want it to end so i'm just going to say to them. Don't worry it's not going to and you won't have to wait so long for season. Three to pop up feeds we promise. Please keep checking those feeds. Yes because season three is already on our schedules. We are full steam ahead with it and we will be back on line by early summer. We promise you early summit does feel like a long way away nikki. If you'll to faraway mar. I mean so far well. How about this for faraway. Why don't we talk about base virgin galactic announced that it'll be sending its first customers space next year after so many years of hyping this up and it's going to cost what two hundred and fifty thousand dollars per ticket. I must admit. I think people who already gone and just not talked about it. It's been going on silo. This has been the never ending story literally but okay two hundred and fifty thousand dollars per ticket a quarter of a million dollars. You don't get a hotel suite. You gotta spacesuit and it's this was kind of the story of a few months ago it's being designed by under armor it's got all of these different considerations built into it. You got a whole lot of training the ultimate bragging rights as soon as you book your ticket. Of course we have no idea. Who's going but rumored astronauts and waiting include. Theoretically angelina jolie. Tom hanks and yes victoria. Principal aka pam from the original series of dallas. How is she one of the first passengers. Good for her good for her is right. Those dallas residuals must be pretty pretty good. Who would have thought well. These people currently have pretty good company in real life travelers. Like you and i according to the app trip scout which is a really good travel community by the way. It's a fun one. They've pulled several thousand members to see what people think about going to space. And it's a mixed bag but there is surprisingly positive feedback. So what what did they say. Because i'm i'm really on the fence. I know i don't have the desire brazenly eighty four percent of the polls travelers at least registered an interest in visiting space. All right but there was a caveat. They said they don't wanna be pioneers. They don't wanna be on the first wife. Eighty two percent of travelers said. They would only go once they felt. It was safe enough and meaning once virgin. Galactic hit a thousand flights that was their critical thresholds. Twenty nine thousand nine. Who knows right. Twenty three percent. Were okay with at once. Richard branson himself went up and came back safely. Which was you know a different threshold for safety. I don't know what do you think mark. I'm totally with the eighty. Two percents. yeah i do. This is one of those moments where. I don't want to be an early adopter now. I'm very happy not to be the center. I stream space but also to stay alive. I personally have no real desire to go through the physical experience of getting there as much as it must be truly powerful and worlds changing earth changing mind or whatever you want to say about it all of the things. I i don't want to do it. But i think it's because i think we're all chomped by richard branson. He's a charismatic leader. But peop- people have been in quite severely injured in the trials. It has not been without its problems and human costs. And i think the blue sky nuts of it is wonderful but i don't think we should be too naive. About how complicated. Space technologies have been space disasters for reason. Lorries really really. I think you're hitting on an important point. And maybe maybe this is exactly why. I don't want to do it. I was born the year that the challenger exploded not to date myself. But you know these things stick with is and and we can't ignore them in the face of what would otherwise be very interesting vacation if you can call it that. Do you think it's interesting. Though branson very much has stolen the funder or the oxygen of space race because he's such a berlin marketer he really is he is he. You could learn anything from him. But he's not the only billionaire touring with space travel. Well you have to be a billionaire to toy with space travel right but you're right. There are two others elon. Musk of course. jeff bezos. So why don't you talk through some of the things that they've got just picturing someone with a big white cat stroke. I have a billionaire interested. In austin powers style evil would be living would run one of these companies may have even anyway spacex elon. Musk's company was founded in two thousand two. Which is like forever ago at this point and it's been launching rockets since two thousand eight. It was the first private company to fire rocket into space. But of course it's launched more than a hundred and it's still kind of working towards this goal even after those hundred launches right. I mean it's it it. It says that it's beer fall. Which i won't. I won't explain what those acronyms stunned full given moss but the b f. Aw apparently will head into space in twenty twenty three and it's does have a very high profile passenger who is one of the yusaku. Mayes is one of the richest men in japan and he has just stepped down from running his fashion retail company in order to be part of this project. He's forgot his enormous gap like empire to train with ealing musk's company. This is crazy so during a recent press conference he actually said that one of his main reasons for doing all of this was because he knew that he needed a few years to train for a voyage. That will apparently happen. Twenty twenty three if all goes to plan and so he's literally spending the next three to four years going through the physical process of preparing for space travel. I mean who's got time for that if it's a vacation rutten bearing for it. The buff est billionaire in america. Jeff bezos who also has a space exploration company. He's a school blue origin. Its first space. Craft is called new shepherd which is named after alan shepard the first american to go into space. This all sounds very romantic. Of course they've only used crash dummies so far. So let's let's knicks the romance right there but twenty seems set to be the year where they actually send human human passengers on quote unquote. John's into space. I'll believe it when i say it. I think it is fascinating that all three of these companies are founded and the pet projects of very big ego billionaires. Jeff bezos elon. Musk richard branson are all such personalities and it shows you what sort of ultimate goal space must represent. It feels very testosterone infused. You're saying no one hundred percent is it's this desire to plant the flag on the moon. Right there were so many foreign things. I'm sure we can go into well instead of doing that. I think we should. I think we should keep our guest for this episode. High think is adventures enough that she would probably get on that role. She might do it and she could have a really big ego like all of these other billionaires dudes but she really doesn't and that's my favorite thing about her she takes. The title of most traveled traveled genius of because she's a traveling musician she's member of the kills with jamie hens as well as the dead where the supergroup with jack white's and she logs just wait for this. It makes my eyes wards. Think about it. Five hundred thousand miles in the air each year. Of course. We're talking about allison moss. Hart and she's more than just a musician just maas. Art is a prolific artist. Author and her latest project is a multimedia book that focuses on another one of her passions cars. It's called karma karma karma.
