That require imports from both. Aoa sensors in order to eight. 'em cass recalling the accident so he's just one angle of attack sensor So to a required and you need inputs from both of them. The inputs have to be compared from the two sensors and if they differ significantly than that will disable the speed trim system which includes m cass for the remainder of the flight.

"Swift was the second big One is far as awards picked up. She picked up the AM A for the third year in the in the row for Artist of the year. And here she is. Thank you so much for this. This is this is a fan Voted award, which means so much to me. You guys have been beyond wonderful all the years of my career, but especially this one. When we've been so far apart. We haven't been able to see each other and concert. The sacrifice still feel really connected to you through music. And You know your reaction to folklore and all the ways in which your imagination honored that album. I just love you so much, And I'm really, really lucky because of you. Reason I'm not there tonight is, um, actually re recording all of my old music in because of the kind Oh, yeah, It's been amazing, and I can't wait. She's recording you re recording. So she positional the cattle third year in a row, right. The quick back story on the drama is that her label sent Scooter Braun, which she's been head to head with all the Masters over originals, and she said, Well, I'm going to just re record it and own it myself. Which good for her. I really do believe in that, you know, and I and I think it's important explained because you may hear like, especially older artists redo over. It's a re release of that. Why you're releasing you get the money so they can on the right stuff. So they recorded they just re recorded. It sounds exactly the same. Maybe change a couple little things. But they'd be really minor and she records her whole catalog all over again. It's like okay now now I own And so I commend her on that. But to be honest, I had no idea that I was like, why she get it. I forgot that. She released an album earlier in the year, and I think that's kind of the whole idea about Taylor. Swift people are like I forgot about you a little bit.

"Free versions of the podcast and the other is every month. We do one of these. Ama episodes asked me anything episodes so near the end of the month. I put up a post on patriot fan and anyone who's a patriot. Supporter can ask a question. And i try. Don't always succeed but i try my best to answer every question that is asked in this episode represents that so these episodes these ama recordings are published on patriae on near the end of the month. In fact this one your about to listen to if you're going to listen to. It came out at the beginning of november just before the presidential election which seems like years ago. Now but what happened is a lot of the patriot. Supporters by their own initiatives. Said it'd be better if we could. Share the results of the ama widely not just to patriot supporters so patriotic supporters will continue to get the benefit of being able to ask questions on the ama but going forward. Anyone will be able to listen to the answers. So we're gonna make it just a regular part of the mindscape feed it won't replace the regular episodes so won't get a number We're gonna release these episodes in the middle of the month. So the patriots supporters. Get a week or two. After the ama came out to listen to it and know in their hearts that only they have been able to hear it. And then we're gonna send it out to everybody. So as i always say here. No pressure to join on patriot or anything like that where the heavy community whether or not money is exchanging hands. But i would like to convey my thanks to patriot community for suggesting that we share these ama episodes more widely. So these words. I'm saying right. Now are replacing. The intro i did for the actual ama that the patriots supporters heard. Because i was only talking about the election. That was gonna come up in a day or two not really relevant anymore going forward. This is going to be The same intro that you get for the wide thing and for the patriots supporters usually babylon for a couple of minutes about something that has been going on in the last week.

It's suited for so. That's the format. Is there any tricks from That's the cool part Virtually every trick except for one was custom designed for that show which is sad for me. Because i can't really use the stuff of it. The one and a half exceptions to that are if you're familiar with my trojan detrick. Where i shuffle the deck and bay shuffle a deck and all the cards match. We found a way to do that on the floor. In the round in the show it looked really cool and the other Happy trick out of that is If you've seen me do the t shirt trick where. I write stuff on the t shirt and some magic thing happened. That was developed four. Six boss will things. But i've done television. I do live in my shows now. So that's as to when it's coming out. It's a win.

Coinbase in Turmoil: Why Employees Walked Out

"Coin base has been a major topic of discussion this week, not only in the crypto world, but also in the wider world of Tech Business and politics why don't you give us a recap of what happened it's it's been a major reason for why I haven't gotten any sleep this week as well. But yeah just basically to recap on Sunday. Brian. Armstrong the CEO of Coin Base released a blog outlining effectively his political vision or anti social activist vision for coin. Base. As a firm, very mission driven sort of mission for a very product driven mission for the company effectively, and so obviously that kind of set the CRYPTO and tech world broadly aflame with different perspectives on whether or not that sort of the right course of action for a company that. So public facing coin based to take a company that could in many ways drive you know messages of social justice and black lives matter to large audiences, and so lots of debates around that lots of coverage in mainstream and crypto media alike about you know what this means for coin base and from A. Company's perspective and from the perspective of whether or not it will result in in folks leaving and then on Tuesday the night of the debate Literally right after the debate ended I got an email from a source which was basically the e mail that Brian Armstrong out to employees saying listen if you are uncomfortable with this with this new mission or the way that we sort of outlined, the mission perfectly fine. We will give you a very generous honestly package a severance package to than leave the company which you have until next week to consider So that was Tuesday Wednesday obviously, you know still this was. In the in the media being talked about on twitter and definitely being talked about act coin base internally in in various slack channels, and then today they had an Amei discussing this and I put out I'm in the process of putting out a report. That's GONNA walk through this time line an ama addressing all the stuff that's been going on this week, and then as you know some of the attention has been sucked away by quote unquote rival not necessarily rival bit Mex- getting slapped with charges from the Department of Justice. So that's been the weakened and nutshell that's been what we've seen in a nutshell and it's been it's been interesting it's but not necessarily unsurprising. So, you mentioned social justice in black lives. Matter were those the specific social and or political issues by employees at coin base wanted the company to take a stand on. Or take action on or were there other issues because obviously with you we've seen with twitter and facebook that there's also a lot of talk in the in the tech world about what companies roles are in you know managing misinformation and I know coins isn't in the business of misinformation but there is a lot of talk about how tech companies what their actions can do in terms of our democracy. And there's a lot of there's a lot of talk around this election. Right let's let's not forget that we are just a few few weeks away from what what many would consider one of the most important elections of our generation of many people's lifetimes maybe, and so there is probably just a just as there. There is this this sentiment at many other companies of how do we take action? How do we provide employees with the right tools to go vote to make their voices heard and to have an impact on on this decisive election? Those worthy issues that coin base or what we're specifically the ones I'm just saying I wouldn't be surprised if that was sort of something that was underpinning this this this blog that Brian felt like he needed to put out on. Sunday. Now rewinding the clock and this is what my report gets at. This isn't this isn't an isolated thing that happened on Sunday, and if you go and wind the clock back to the summer. Okay and this was hinted at in Brian's blog but not explicitly talked about. Back. In June there was an ama and you know this from covering coin base three-run reporting that they have these Ama's employees can submit questions and ask. Company Management Senior leadership about a myriad of things from you know personal preferences of of Ice Cream. I. Don't know if that's ever been asked but that could be an example to to you know thoughts about company Product, launches to you know other personal and business questions alike, and so someone asked according to several sources a question about Brian's view on black lives matter. Okay and so that kind of resulted in him I wouldn't say re rebuffing the question but there one source described him as not necessarily being not necessarily knowing if the person was asking about black lives matter the movement or black lives matter the specific organization and kind of saying like I'm not ready to talk about this and so what that ended up resulting in was a walkout in Brian's posts he describes they're being. Walkouts plural Not necessarily sure if that's because obviously we're in this decentralized work working situation where An office people basically, you know walkout turn their computers often signed off for the day. So that's been brewing since June right this question of whether or not. They should take a definitive make a definitive statement in. Support of black lives matter and so that be clear he did that from his personal account north. Yeah. So that next day as a result of sort of all of this, you know all this commotion I guess for lack of a better word. He then did go out and tweet that he definitively supports black lives matter as a movement supporting the idea that you know black lives as a result of of of the state of African Americans in this country need to sort of be recognized in an uplifted to examine, and then he had A. Pretty long tweet thread outlining that and and in that tweet threat as well. I think I think one hundred percent sure. He mentioned the walkouts as well. So it's kind of been a long at least from my understanding along thread also underpinning like aside from the issue specifically like there's a question or or an interesting point to be made about Brian himself and like I'm sure you also can like speak to this given your your previous covered. in two, thousand, fourteen there was a Bloomberg article that described him and Fred as. These VOLCAN bankers right like you know very not the most gregarious characters that you come across and very serious and like Brian I was talking to a source about this like basically an hour and a half ago Brian is someone who probably like wanted to build the most used most important product and crypto not run the largest most important company in Crypto and so I think that also undergirds this this situation where I I'm sure Bryan is like a fairly nice guy like I I take. I. I'm sure you know his sympathy or concern about certain. Social Justice issues could could be legitimate, but he like wants to build coin base like he wants to build this company. and. What's so funny about that. I have a feeling I know which Thorson. But anyway. We'll check about that later in check after the show. Yeah. But yeah. So that's that's that's basically where we're at with this I've just been surprised. I'm shirt. I don't know how surprise am I know I am surprised that it's gotten so much attention I. Think. Maybe because of the language of the blog and the language of the email and apparently that's been another thing that's been discussed in in the Ama today and just generally internally is. And this is probably not surprising like did we were this right and and that's obviously evident in the fact that they've changed some of the language in the Post, right? So originally, there was a reference made a kind of like strange reference Some would say to brand Taylor in which they sort of talk about like the events regarding you know recent events as opposed to like you know this tragedy someone probably want more passionate language. and. So there's been talks about whether or not the language in these two documents were appropriate on I. Think. It's not so much about what's going on maybe internally aucoin based that that people are reacting to these to. You know this this blog post, and then this email right which really. kind of Coley rent people might argue right and so that's what I'm sort of

Okay and so that kind of resulted in him I wouldn't say re rebuffing the question but there one source described him as not necessarily being not necessarily knowing if the person was asking about black lives matter the movement or black lives matter the specific organization and kind of saying like I'm not ready to talk about this and so what that ended up resulting in was a walkout in Brian's posts he describes they're being. Walkouts plural Not necessarily sure if that's because obviously we're in this decentralized work working situation where An office people basically, you know walkout turn their computers often signed off for the day. So that's been brewing since June right this question of whether or not. They should take a definitive make a definitive statement in. Support of black lives matter and so that be clear he did that from his personal account north. Yeah. So that next day as a result of sort of all of this, you know all this commotion I guess for lack of a better word. He then did go out and tweet that he definitively supports black lives matter as a movement supporting the idea that you know black lives as a result of of of the state of African Americans in this country need to sort of be recognized in an uplifted to examine, and then he had A.

Helicopter Rescue from California Fires

"Talk about the creek fire. How was it that you? I found out about that fire. You know it's kind of ironic because it was actually social media that attracted me to it I to live in that area and was aware of the creek fire. And it was actually scrolling through social media. and. Posts that said Hey role these hikers AMA- pools. Campers pools, and I immediately picked up the phone in a caller joint operation center, and they had just officially gotten that same word and we're in the process of activating a Chinook. Doctrine to assist with families that were stranded at pools. I immediately called KIPP guiding who is one of the other pilots that perform the rescue. My name is five guiding I am a Black Hawk pilot with California. National Guard we fly age sixty Mike's and it is we're in Fresno. and. That's where I live. So tell us about the capabilities of the Sikorsky Blackhawk helicopter. Fantastic, versatile capable machine, and happy to fly. It's got. Lots of things that I hadn't even mastered yet. We came from the older. Lima. Aircraft and just recently upgraded the Mike Model and just learning new things about it pretty much. Every time you fly somebody's got a new way to do something because of course, most things there's there's five ways you can do it and you know the one that you do, but but the guys that use other ways to get to the same result in it's Kinda nice to know those as well. kind of a technology to have on board that helped make the flight possible for example, to you using radar alternators or hover holds or what what kinds of things are you doing? Yeah. We both of those. So we had radar timid. Hover hold we have the terrain integrated into the screen. So we see all the train that is at above my altitude. We have you know airspeed hold out to holds fully coupled flight director to help get the war cloth you if you need to concentrate on something else and I'm guessing you had night vision goggles that tell us about how well they work. We did. So we initially went out there we were under day conditions in it was extremely difficult to get around the fire in certainly, it was impossible for us to penetrate the smoke wall to get to the mammoth lakes. Reservoir. But then as it as we're out there waiting for some tankers to drop their loads, it got dark enough that we did try to gobbles in once once this goggle able, we were to see through the smoke give us another half mile ability to be able to go some valleys and some places that we were not able to do earlier in the day when we tried and had to turn back that's kind of interesting. So what you're saying is that you given the same smoke conditions, you're actually to fly better in them at night with goggles on the daytime without them. Absolutely because The smoke, you just couldn't see, but with the goggles illuminating the fire and the burning embers that gave you a little bit more depth than it. Also, you could see where the high terrain was because it was burning on both sides. So you could see the elevation was you could see where the valley was we could stay in the center of the valley and like another half mile visibility to continue. Are there any kind of engine performance considerations when you're flying in heavy smoke? Sure how you can have compressor stalls in the heated airs less performance than the Cooler? Denser air. So that's part of it not the rotors less lift when when the air is hot and thinner. So that's. Something we always thinking about and we always have performance planning that we do before we leave and then on board the aircraft performance planning. If you get some more need, you thought it was GONNA be. At this altitude of temperature, you can easily get into the onboard computer and put in the correct numbers. The experiencing gets more definite ch situational performance that's happening right here. Right now, this what you can expect the current conditions in it tells you. In meanwhile, all reas on day three of his hike in the back country when he and his friends noticed that something was wrong. As we are. One of the passes over into readies whole. We look. Looked back toward the West and we saw a huge black column of smoke and topped off with a look like senator. Cloud. And boy we studied that for a while and realized that that's a problem that looks like it's from the general area where we grow in. And we carry a GPS just in case we we never use it really, but we have just in case ran a forested area where we can't see any natural features. We WanNA make sure we're on the same route. And we pulled out the GPS and and pinpointed where it was coming from it and sure enough it was coming from. Shaver Lake. Town. We drove through on highway one, sixty eight. So. We tried not to let that get as down too much. But we knew it was fire was probably about fifteen twenty miles from where we were as the crow flies. And then that night as the sun was setting to the West, it was completely obscured in orange by the smoke and we knew that this was going to ask somehow impact our trip. By the time we got down to Heather Lake smoke started to come in the winds shifted and you know it's really just a matter of shifting winds. And the winds shifted and in came into our little bowls a lake you set in a little granite, bowl. And those things tend to truly trap smoke in Chernoff. By the afternoon we were smoked out we could we could hardly across the lake. And started to fall. We had our a Powell a discussion realize. Okay. We need to get out of here tomorrow. Will Get up five in the morning in an Alpine start head on down the mountain and get back to our cars as soon as possible and so that was. Very. Somber. Champ that night. And you could smell smoke. It was very strong and everything was covered with ash and so that night was pretty bad and woke up first thing in the morning it was the same smokey it was dark. Broke camps quickly as possible has breakfast and then headed on down mount. And of course, Johanna was back home wondering about all re what did you do after he left a Kinda, keep track of things. Well, there's a cal fire map that updates. Map the fire status in California. And because we have friends and family who have been evacuated. In the NAPA area and up in Yukio We're very familiar with this map. We we look at it. We see where we're fires growing. And there were a couple of fires prior to his departure. They weren't near where he was going. So there was no concern about that. I didn't even look at the map actually for awhile and then I looked at it. I think it was Saturday morning. and Bam. There was at big fire of Shaver Lake which was not where he was backpacking. I knew he was far enough away for it not to be like an immediate danger to him. But I could see that it was covering the road. He had to go through that very narrow road that we discussed. That, he had to go through in order to access the point where he started backpacking. And I can see that there was no way out and I could see that the fire was growing. To word his location. So that was a little bit concerning. At the same time, helicopter pilot KIP got was preparing for what was to become the first of three nights of helicopter rescues

"Album to own a rousing carry the show where we just report on fringe science spirituality and claims of the paranormal. But take pride ourselves Yup make the claims we show up. So you don't have to. Carry poppy and finally a hot drinks investigation. That's right. Yeah. So what's in the tea leaves for this investigation? It's funny. You should say it that way because we are or something in the cards investigating hope nope. You were there and then you have the right idiom. Tea Leaves Tea Leaf reading my goodness. They still do that sort of a feels like something from bygone era totally. Yeah. So people used to do this to read your fortune you get loose leaf tea put it in a cup swish it around turn it a certain way and the way those tea leaves fell told Jim Things about your future or your past there's even an autograph named for this task theocracy. Reading tea leaves. So if your name is Tassie Take Note Aka Tassio Mansi Oh. Okay. So AMAS Tassie. But you're Mansi. This has been around for a long time in various forms goes way back the idea that you drink your tea but you know you do it with all the loose leaf plant matter in your debris, right? Yeah. t debris not like these nice little treatise. Not, that you like. Dunk one of these Handy Dandy little teabags that we now it's Lipton tea or something come on let's be clear and then afterwards will not be. You've got these dregs at the bottom and what are you gonNa do with them just throw them out. No learn the future from them why not turn trash into treasure your on at tank you. Good So. So yeah the ideas then after you've drunk your tea hot drinks. Then, you swirl around what's left and it forms these images that you can use either like a symbol dictionary or maybe you've assembled your own Interpretations Yeah Oga Point I bet that's where this came from kind of looking at the clouds and saying it's a bunny and that means that I'll get a bunny. That's that's my God is that this is kind of an invocation of payroll. Yeah. Oh, we have kind of random splatter pattern. Let's use that to read our own subjective messages into it. Paradise is the known psychological phenomenon where we see something that looks even vaguely like it could be a face or. Anything that might threaten US or in have agency. We will see that. Yes. So that is the first thing we'll see and even if it. Looks like. Face on Mars. Just under the right grainy settings. Is Selective angle of lighting yeah. We'll make out that face or we'll make out that eagle or whatever it may be. My favorite example is the front of a neon car just naturally looks like it's smiling at you. Oh. Yeah right yeah. There are certain cars I'll follow behind like Oh. That looks like a happy old man right car and it's interesting how many place names come from certain geographical features that look like. Something like Eagle, rock near US air is Iraq the mail in profile Kinda looks like an eagle. Yeah. To us. Would it look like an eagle to a cat or a pigeon? No one asks them because they have different ways a sensing the world. But in this case we've got tea leaves in a teacup someone looked at them and yeah, I, would I would guess said, Oh, you know what I see a sword. That means your life is threatened right? It certainly doesn't mean I need to clean up this cup. Eventually. Hopefully, the cup gets cleaned. And people done this with coffee as well. Oh. Really. Okay which. With the grounds probably have grounds for prophecy there. Yeah boy I never really thought about how this is really just an excuse for being very sloppy, Cook. Well, it's clean up afterwards but yeah, and it seems like people have like their preferred types of tea which plants they're using. But we we've got a couple options here and we lefty E.. We also found out that you can order a tea leaf reading without even drinking tea. Absolutely. You can have someone else drink for you or say that they did. And give you a reading. Someone is available to do that. So actually this happened back when we had our episode about the Emergency Tarot reading this is back in early July night we sent out a bunch of things we signed up for various at sea stuff and I've just had in the back of my mind this whole time that I have tea leaf reading in my inbox that I haven't even read a- from July. Okay. So we'll get to double dip this particular teabag because if it applied to in July or if it applies to be now, oh, right. Impress war if she or he or they said something specific about what would happen immediately following the reading. Test exactly I sent you the deal that I had used when I did the search tea leaf reading or t reading, and then I realized I had actually bought three tea leaf reading. So Geez at the same time. So from different vendors. Yeah. I. Still haven't read them I'm excited to find out what these different tea leaf readings said about me. Okay. So let's place bets. Do you think of the four tea leaf readings? We've got three for you. The one for me do you think any of them will include a picture of the actual t they supposedly drank? I would love that I'm going to guess no, I'm going to guess no as well. That would be cool. It seems like. A basic thing in this world of cell phones if you're going to all that trouble of making tea, drinking it for me and looking at the shapes that came thereby that you would take a

So maybe, I'll do a channel and discord. You can dm us. It will create a Google doc and keep track of the questions and everything. So you won't have to worry about it. Asks on twitter even you know just let us know and we'll put them in the AMA's, and we'll get to that the last Thursday show of every month than if we get a ton like I said, we can always split it up or figure it out from there.

"Without further delay. Here's Today's sneak peek of the. Ask Me Anything episode into their. Ask Me Anything or AMA episode. This is number fourteen. One of our previous. Ama's I mentioned how I like to think about lab ranges and I might look at them in a way that it's not necessarily congruent with the way the themselves talk about them and I talked about doing potentially an episode about looking at labs and such so. This is that episode so this is pretty big topic and we actually didn't cover as much as I thought we would before we ran out of time on this episode so in this episode. I talk very broadly but I think comprehensively and in a manner. That's helpful to think about labs about my framework four. What labs can inform and what they can't inform and again even though that took longer than I thought it would take. I don't think it makes sense to get into this discussion without starting with a foundation. And so I think you'll find that interesting and hopefully it's the type of thing you don't have to go back and revisit over and over again but sitting through at once is a really good way to say okay if I'M GONNA go to the trouble of doing advanced testing what am I learning. And just as importantly what am I not learning? We then go into a couple of cases around cardiovascular disease and that's pretty much where we run out of time on this episode goes by really quick. And we're going to do is come back and just pick it up on the same thread going into other sorts of cases so at the end of this episode. I talk about what we're going to come back and visit and of course if based on this episode you have specific types of lab questions or scenarios. Maybe as a more important I think about it that you want to dive into. Please let us know. And we can obviously add that to subsequent episodes so before I started have to obviously give the obligatory disclaimer. Which is at this. Podcast is for informational.

"Now it's an interesting question And we're we're going to find out how long they can actually push this for That's the reality of the situation is we're going to see. How long did they can actually shut down the economy before a people who fucking need to work are are gonNA start Get NANCY SO I don't know I don't have an answer to that but it'll we'll all find out together. I suppose all right. Here's Dan There's been so much talk about boo boo What is What is the point where people actually start revolting Seems to me if it wasn't happening already. Never will well a similar question to the the last one but no. I don't think something's not happening. That means it never will happen. It just means people haven't been pushed far enough to the to the point of actually being ready to to do it All Right Dan. What will it take for you to don a Hawaiian Shirt I'll I'll do it like in the right situation like on a cruise or something like that If I'M IN HAWAII IF I'm in the Bahamas or something like that I might throw one on. Just get in the mood. But you're not gonNA catch me on that in In New York. Okay Seth what is the Libertarian? Answer to stop companies from committing mass. Pollution doesn't seem to me like a boycott would be effective because it's not like these companies are doing this shit out of Out in the open so the public wouldn't even know about it I don't know about that seat. The problem with having this attitude toward pollution is that pollution is just taken as a bad that. It's always bad right. So the truth is pollution and civilization are one in the same literally one in the same. That's how you get civilization. Is you start polluting? There's no I mean start from the beginning This is like what the environmentalists completely miss. Or maybe they don't even miss it and they're just anti-human that's possible too and it's true in some cases but if you look at nature as we find it it's what a forest with a bunch of trees now have you say. Hey we're gonNA start building a civilization step number is going to be. Let's cut down some trees and and it's going to be more and more after that right so it's not as if pollution in general the fact that we all live in civilizations and stuff kind of indicates that people are comfortable with a certain amount of pollution right now if you're talking about the the bad kind of pollution right like a certain kind of pollution which is like somebody you know like Dumping in a river or something like that so the drinking water isn't clean or whatever like somebody really polluting the air. The point where other people are breathing in getting sick or something like that Well number one. That's not done in secret. People know where that pollution is coming from almost always And number two. What you're talking about as a property rights violation. I mean if you're it let's say if your polluting your land and it doesn't affect anybody else it doesn't affect any of their land or the air they're breathing or anything like that then Then there's really no problem right. 'cause nobody's being by this. You're just kind of fucking up your own land so go for it. But I think what we're usually talking about when we talk about pollution is that you're dumping in a river and the rivers going downstream to an area where you don't own the land and fucking all of their land up so it's a property rights violation they should have a right to sue you for that But you don't enforce property rights efficiently by saying we're going to create one central organization that can violate property rights whenever they want to known as the state So that's yeah I mean I just think what you want is. Is You know. Strict enforcement of property rights. And that's that's your best bet to all right you know what? I'm going to take one more and then that'll be That'll be it for part one of the Great Ama. I'll keep these gallon. I'll try to maybe every week. I'll put out another part of the Great Amei or something like that and we'll keep going is see if I can get through this whole list. You guys are gonNA keep adding stuff to it Okay do Patrick is now a good time to get the end. The Fed movement back up and running. They've backed us into an economic mess. that looks like it will only get worse. They are now buying up corporate bonds. Is this the crisis where the slow roots for the possibility of Fascism? Make a death grip No question about it. I think this is the time this is. This is where you know. It's always interesting in these situations where it kind. It can kind of seem like you know whatever some people and say the death of libertarianism or were in our worst moment or something like that but then on the flip side this is our greatest opportunity and whether or not You know We take advantage of it. That's up to us but we have entered a time where monetary policy is back on the table. You know it's something to be talked about again and yes. This is a big opportunity. The risk of course is real deal. Fascism that we might be living under or a great depression that we might be living under But this is absolutely the time for Libertarians to start talking about the Federal Reserve and how they are actively as we speak right now. Robbing you robbing you blind. And this isn't anything about this. Is this is what we have to get across the people? It's not a question about should You know the government tax wealthy people to help out the less wealthy people or should the government not tax wealthy people to help out the less wealthy people. That's the debate. Everyone always wants to have the reality is. The government is robbing from working people to bail out rich people. That's what's going on and it's indefensible and that's what we need to insert into the conversation. Of course they're doing this. Most directly through monetary policy Elysee. They're also going to be doing it with some corporate bailouts. An other regards but the most agree just just the largest You know heist is through the monetary system. So that's what we gotta talk about. And I know I'll keep talking about it I got Tom Woods I'm I'm recording with him later today. And then I'm recording with gene obscene tomorrow and I'm GonNa talk to both of them about that That very topic Okay that is part one of the Great Ama be safe everybody.

"If you WANNA know who? America's next enemy is looking at funding right now other than the one of these problems are result of government being way too big to do. Hey what's up guys? Welcome to a brand new episode of part of the problem. I'm David Smith of course. Still in self distancing quarantined mode. I hope very much that everybody out there is doing good. I hope that You guys are staying healthy and hopefully Healthy both physically and economically and in every other sense I know this is a tough time for a lot of people out there so I've been thinking a lot about that lately. Hey here's an idea that I I was thinking because somebody posted something along these lines In the part of the problem inner circle. But you know so I was talking to my wife the other day about like Maybe what we could Donate a little bit of money to or maybe if there was somebody who you know like A. I don't know you know in times like this. You obviously there's a lot of people who are hurting And then somebody at post something in the inner circle along the lines of his anybody here really up against it financially and I thought there was something really cool about that. So maybe If we were one of the things we could do that I thought would be kind like a a nice idea that would be. That'd be really great as if maybe there were some people In in our private facebook group or even outside of its people. Listen to the show if you are like in a real tough time for a lot of people who are out of work and don't have you know savings to rely on you know. Some people are more screwed over by the situation than others If you start a gofundme or something like that we can share it around and maybe that would be kind of cool if some of the you know the some of the people listen to the show who are in a little bit more of a secure place than others could help out some of the The people who are in a bad situation I'd certainly be happy to to help battle little bit And Yeah maybe we could get some Some voluntary socialism going within our Our hardcore free-market crowd anyway was just thought I had based off with somebody else posted and I thought that would be neat. So maybe we could. Maybe we can try to do that. I'll I'll certainly be happy to like Share any of those around and stuff like that so whatever I can do to help Lemme now So I have a You know I put out an episode that a that was released today with With the Great Scott Horton And we talked for about two hours and you know Scott of course as usual is. He's great on everything. and So so that episode came out. I got I'M GONNA be recording with the great. Tom Woods Later on today and then I'm going to be recording with the Great Jeanette Stein Tomorrow Trying to line up some other Some other stuff as well But so you know I I'm trying to at least give you guys a you know a good amount of content while I'm here Also I was Invited onto a Jimmy. Doors Show So trying to make that happen he invited me on and I said I'm happy to do it so I still haven't heard back from his people but I think I think I'll be doing that That show coming up sometime in the near future so Look for that as well. I know he wanted to talk to a libertarian about their Their take on on this whole this whole mess so you know. I'm I'm glad he's He's He's thinking about having me on 'cause I was hoping it wouldn't be somebody else who would just go go embarrass all of us. And there's no shortage of that in the libertarian world. So anyway for today's episode. What I thought I was asking the part of the problem. Inner Circle Members just other ideas for episodes of what we could do. I mean I don't want to just keep talking about corona virus. Obviously that's the big thing. But we've you know I'm GonNa talk about that with Tom in with Jane Epstein tomorrow so you know I was thinking like what else can we do and people were making different suggestions? And one of the suggestions was that I do like a giant Ama where I answer all of the questions from the the inner circle Private facebook group and I thought that was a cool idea. And maybe we try that so this is going to be the. Great Ama the Great. Ask me anything from the part of the problem. Inner Circle which is our private facebook group So I figured I'd start doing that. I'm going to try to take on all All of your questions I won't be able to do that all in one episode but so I figure we'll just make. This is a multi part episode. You know I'll I`ll. I'll do these ever ever ever so often or whatever I don't know still kind of figuring it out but I'll take on a whole bunch of them right now and Try to answer them as best I can. And then of course on top of all the other The other interviews conversations that I'm doing you know we'll we'll keep doing those Those fireside chats with the fire Robbie Bernstein the king the Cox. I'll keep those going. I like the I like calling them. Fireside chats maybe maybe. I'll do that but I'll keep calling and checking in with Robbie from time to time so of course all of you good people can hear from ratify Bernstein. Because really. That's what you need in a time like this is is more more rapid fire. I know that's what I need all right. So let's jump into it here. It is I posted In the part of the problem inner circle. I'm going to record an Ama show and try to answer all your questions. It'll probably take a few episodes. But here's part one. Hit Me with your questions. Let's see what we've got okay. So Raymond asks What will you spend your first? Usa backed digital dollar on. And I assume you're referring to my trump bucks if I if I ever end up getting I you know I have a feeling I'm not gonNA end up getting anything Just because of the the proposals I've seen floated around so far. I'm not sure I would be entitled to anything but I don't know I haven't really figured it out yet if If I do end up getting a check from the government maybe I'll maybe I'll try to put it toward some some good. 'cause I don't know maybe try to help out some Some some listeners. Of the show or something like that. Maybe just donate it. The missus institute. I don't know I gotta I gotTa figure it all out but I don't know it's an interesting question and I don't have a very good answer for you because I haven't gotten anything and I'm not sure yet By the way I will unrelated thing. Let me answer question that you're not asking because I heard a bunch of people saying like what is the correct like Libertarian. Thing to do you know like this thing like well. If you don't really believe in government handouts should you take it are you morally obligated not to take it and I don't really personally buy into into that. I mean I think that Look the the government robs a lot more from us Then then they give us. And that's just directly. I mean not for everybody. Some people are living off the government. But certainly if you're a net tax payer I think there is no way you should have no moral qualms about getting some of your money back and And then even if you're not an tax payer the truth as the government you know the government robs us in one hundred and one different ways so I wouldn't I wouldn't i. Wouldn't you know worry about that like if you need the money and you get. Excuse me. Don't worry it's not corona. There's just a cat in this house. been sneezing and having a runny nose today. So I apologize for that but Yeah I wouldn't if you need the money and you get the money. I think there's nothing wrong with taking it. And that's that's always been my position on like you know anytime you know. Medicare social security anything like that. Like if the government's GonNa rob you and you get your hands back on some of that money. I don't think there's any problem with that but taking it and spending it all right. Let's move to the next question. Drew Asks He says that he says potential impact of forced closures on violent crimes and other undesirable events Yeah that's well. The potential is certainly there. That's probably more than anything else. Probably the reason why I got I got my wife and daughter out of Out of New York City just didn't seem like That was the The best place to be I'm concerned about that. I mean we're going to have to see how this whole thing plays out i. I don't know for sure that things are going to get bad but I already I saw the other day. actually my wife showed me but the videos of homeless people Getting Real Rowdy in in Brooklyn and they were kind of like a Like roaming around together really starting to harass people and this is only just you know a few days into the shutdown But I'm sure they're not getting as much money as there used to getting because aren't as many people walking around the streets putting money in their cups and stuff like that so yet. It's these things you know. Society in general is much more fragile than we We spend too much time thinking about and so it absolutely concerns. May that if you know something like this could you could start seeing violence increase And that's that threat isn't going to be just during the During this whole you know lockdown even after the lockdown ends. I mean if we are as think we're going to be in a severe recession or maybe even a depression After all this is done You know the big cities may not be the place to be. I mean it might I you know. I grew up in New York City in the eighties and nineties. Let me tell you. New York City was was a different place back then and You know violent crime was was just part of the deal was part of it was like what? New York City was known for So it's And that all changed but that doesn't mean it can't go back so I'm very concerned about that Potential and We'll say we'll see what happens. All Right Eric Asks if you had the misfortune to be elected to Congress how it Congressman Dave Smith. Use The position to further the cause of liberty. Oh Jeez Eric. Why would you do that to me? Why why would you even want to do that? To me Well I don't know and it's not something I I ever do but you know I think really the person who laid out the blueprint for that obviously is a great doctor. Ron Paul who was in Congress for for quite a while and I think he basically did the best thing. You can basically vote. No on everything. Propose a balanced budget. And if you can get yourself onto a monetary policy committee just grill the Fed Chairman Endlessly so that that would probably be my answer to that but truthfully speaking you know the even if you just get one if you get one me in a in Congress. It's it's really not GonNa do that much So a really. All it is is a bully pulpit..

"Everybody Kevin Rose here. Welcome back episode of the Kevin. Rose show really excited do my second ask me anything. I want to say first of all. Thank you to everyone that submitted midday questions to my instagram account. I got probably. I'd say between five hundred and six hundred questions so I couldn't get them all but we highlighted a few of my favorites here and got through quite a few actually because we do a rapid fire at the end for this episode. I wanted to a couple of things. One tell you to call me up on at at Kevin Rose on instagram. And the second thing. I'm excited to do this episode with Jason De Filippo. I've known Jason for a very long time now and we were old school web two point. Oh geeks back in the day Jason. Also Edison's podcast and he's also a podcast host. If you haven't heard his show you want to check out grumpy the old geeks Jason is have you on the show man good to finally get together on a show at some like taking awhile. I know dude. We have been friends for. Do you remember we first met. We first met I think it was right before you got funded for dig because I you said something really nice on. TV about technology. And I was like employees eleven at technology and I saw you lucky cat or black cat. Black Cat yeah. In San Francisco came up and said Hi and then it turned out. We live like two blocks away from each other and the rest is history which was actually a bad thing yet. It was a bad as we end up becoming drinking but his back then and we were pretty young and foolish and consumed a lot of beer. Together we were pretty good drinking buddy. That's for sure that's right that's right. There's some good stories in there that we shall not talk about. Nobody will ever. We're here though that's right so yeah I'm excited to do this with you. Thanks for agreeing to come on and help me out with some of these questions because It'll be nice to have someone to chat with him about the last time I did one. That was Kinda weird when you do those. Ama's and you're the only person sitting in the room. So yeah it's a it's cool to to have you on the show to excellent excellent excellent. Well shall we get started. Let's do it. Do you have any advice for a recent college graduate stepping into the startup world. Yeah absolutely I mean this one is something that ad I you know. We all land in that. I kind of GIG straight out of school or in my case I dropped out of school. I think he dropped out to right. Yeah I I mean. I went what to school for photography. And just Kinda bounced into computers on my own. So I learned everything myself but Yeah you're all self taught on the on the coding side and remember that. Yep You know oh I think that in the early days. Don't think of this as like okay. I I'M GONNA work my way up in NBC's Eeo in in five years. I think it's more about doing excellent work. It's it's about making friends You know these friends will eventually you know go off to start other. Companies joined other businesses. And when you have those relationships ships that's going to open up opportunities future companies in really. I would say these first. Five years are all about networking and improving your worth and being take on any task so whatever you do do it at the highest level and don't have this attitude where well that's beneath me. I mean you really really have to get scrappy and to show that you're willing to take on anything and when you do that and and you do it successfully. You know the people in charge. If you're working on a good organization we'll start to hand you tasks tasks that are you know more more challenging and that will eventually lead to promotions and other things but yeah definitely making friends in in. Doing excellent work would be my by the advice. What's your take on specialization versus generalization in a start up? Well I guess it really depends on if you had gone to school for coding. When you already know I'm GonNa be in this particular department? If you're someone like me that had taken a little bit of code but also I love to do. I was Doing some early display ad stuff. When I first got started in kind of tracking down our of our conversion away from the you know the actual ad add source all the way down to the network that we purchased the ad out all way to converting to a shopping cart or cart? Abandonment rate I just loved excel and loved to jump into that so when I was at my first couple startups it was doing a little bit of everything Just kind of trying to see what what I gravitated towards and what I really loved so yeah I mean. If you're if you're a coder I would get serious about something especially given the kind of crazy demand for on the machine learning and AI side. I'm that's a no brainer to go into those very specific niche kind of industries early on because in five ten years. You'll be making some serious dollars in in those those fields. I know that when I was at Google I had heard that some of our higher end kind of AI. Folks were gosh was it was over. Four million dollars in total copy year for those types of coating positions which just insanity but it just goes to show you how few people at that time. We're actually doing that work. And it it was Is Very sought after in so they could command those salaries. But yeah I'd say if if you really don't know what's going on in any kind of like well. I think I like this but I am not sure. I mean when you're so early in your career you you can afford to go and spend three years to three years at something and in the end up bailing on saying like I just don't like this and then jump over to the the next thing so don't be afraid or feel like if you've gone down a path for years and I wouldn't say this even as an adult later on in life life you've gone down this path and you keep beating yourself up and you know it's not for you at an life's too short It's worth taking a few steps back to to move forward word. Definitely definitely and on the generalization side of things. I just want to chime in that. When I was at the companies I was always a coder but I got to know every different part of the business business? Just because it makes you a better coder because you know what the business goals are. You know what the marketing goals are and it helps you align what you're doing when you design your software and you throw out ideas for new features. It really makes you more valuable to the team. And it's not that you're GONNA have to go you know you're going to be right you know see. PHP Java script doing design work working all that stuff. Not that kind of generalization but just knowing having a working functioning knowledge of the startup that you're working in like try and get your fingers and everything because it's GonNa make you more valuable to the team in the long run. Yeah absolutely and even if like let's say you're a engineer and you eventually want to make your your way to the management track. You're going to have to have those skills anyway way right because if you're managing other engineers part of your responsibilities not only obviously managing that team but then also kind of working with other related teams you know the marketing departments the the CEO on the other organizations internally to to fulfill that vision. So you're gonNA need to have those those skills all right moving on. How often do you meditate? Yeah I mean that's changed quite a bit over the years I would say that Initially I kind of did it to on a more prescriptive kind of the thing where I was meditating to relieve anxiety and just kind of using it because I was going through something in life where I felt like meditation would help me me and then you know later I realized that that's actually the worst time to meditate. You Really WanNa have a habit and build up a practice practice so that you don't even get in those situations to begin with and so for me that that looks like at least and this will seem like a very short amount of time. Yeah but at least ten minutes Sometimes twenty minutes a day but the key here is ten minutes every single day so treating this like something that cannot be skipped tipped. Everyone can find ten minutes. I don't care how busy you are but just making sure to keep up that that daily cadence so that it is a part of your life and that yeah well those benefits will compound over time And I I think it's a it's all you really need. I I was I doing longer for meditations but then you know after when life all of a sudden it hits from a different direction you realize i. I don't have time to sit for forty minutes a day. I was doing twenty minutes in the day and tournament tonight and then all of a sudden an one one of those falls off and then all of the second one falls off you know like well I gotta go meet a friend for dinner tonight. So I can't do in. You're not meditating at all so yes sticking working with a daily practice that you you promise to yourself internally that you just will not move are sacrificing for anything else And during those ten minutes I think is the key. How is is your practice changed from when you didn't have kids too when you had kids? Is that when it started to fall off well. My practice has changed quite a bit in that of study with a bunch of different disciplines over time I was very lucky to live across the street from the San Francisco Zen Center when I moved over on page street there and I would pop in and an actually took my first training and meditation With the Zen monks there and learned about Zaza and all the proper ways proper to sit in the how you would enter the temple and like all these like very formal things that they have when you practice Zen so I was lucky in. That was an hour long meditation that I was doing there seated but thin one. The APP started coming out. So you know head. Space launched in eventually come came out. It started just practicing at home with a cushion there and I was moving to twenty minutes a day. I think is pretty much where I was at the night started. Ti studied TM Meditation which is a form of mantra meditation. They recommend that you do twenty minutes in the morning in tournaments tonight. That's very mantra. Meditations a very intense thing. It's like It's it's different than the than the zen or or more of a pasta kind of with my infamous based meditation and more recently. I've gotten serious about that. Mindfulness based style. I think Sam Harris has a fantastic course but it's the fifty day ten minutes a day course on the pasta style meditation. I fear that a lot of the meditation APPs. Oh concluded the one that I most recently worked on. They're great for an introduction and a lot of them are really great for prescriptive stuff so I have a fear of flying. I'M GONNA take a fear of flying pack and things like that but they don't go really elite really deep for people that want to take meditations seriously. So that's the one thing I really loved about Sams Course. He really is for meditation for people that want to go. Oh a little bit deeper. If you could call yourself ten years ago and talk for one minute what would you tell your younger self. Oh Gosh.

"I think you'll really enjoy it. What are your current favourite biohacking tools? Sauna Cold Exposure Continuous Glucose Monitor. Honor those are the three if you WANNA learn about the benefits of sonnen cold exposure type in Sauna Rhonda Patrick pdf and she has a great article. Michael both unsown and cold exposure to separate documents. you can pull them up. She references all of the peer reviewed science. And why it's important to figure out a way it incorporated into your lives. Those are those might go. To's if you had to choose just one would it be Peleton or Sauna At the tough one I would say probably Peleton because I lost the most weight in got in better cardiovascular shape with Peleton and it's a ton of fun but that that said there are some really inexpensive ways to hack the Saunas some little single person Saunas. And these little things Kinda wrap around a chair and get you to the right temperatures. So don't think just because he draw a couple of grand on Peleton that you know you have to do the same thing for Asana. They're much more inexpensive ways. Infrared saunas things like that as well. So you know I'd I'd say to one and save up for the other. These still invest. I do yeah I do so. I'm pretty vanilla when it comes to public market stuff in that I do index funds all the John Bogel vanguard style stuff and then a certain percentage of my net worth is carved out to cryptocurrency Z.. So I'm really long on Bitcoin so I hold a bunch of Bitcoin and a few other. Little smaller CRYPTO projects. I know that when I say that thousand like which ones and Gosh I would have to think of the ones that pulling some file coin from back in the day and in a couple of other ones that Solana's unas another one. So L. A.. Saying by telling you what I have Coin I don't know opera coin while we're going was the the Burger. Your King crypto amazing without did not. I'd never gotten to Oppor coin so investing wise I tend to think go super risky with a very small percentage of your worth for me. That's Crypto in tech investing in the rest is like just not gonNA lose it. Get a nice little slow. Gains Means Year over year. How many meals a day do you eat to lunch and dinner? He's enough. How do you balance exploring your many interests with being present husband and father It's really difficult. I would say that I used to do like ten little small things that I was always fight juggling now. I pick like one thing that that I want to go and considered to be an outside of work activity and then I I just go do that. So for example. I've been spending some. I've been doing. Actually the kind of two birds wants don't want to spend time with my my mom and that gets to spend some time with her. She lives here as well. And she's getting up there. She'll be eighty next year. which is crazy So I didn't taking pottery class with my mom right now and I do that once a week and I've always wanted to take some pottery and learn in. Just try my hand at that. So it's like I get to spend time with mom and do pottery so it's awesome but yeah just picking one thing because they they kind of hit on it with a question but it is hard to juggle everything. What's your thought process? That's behind moving to Portland. Good life investment. Yeah Portland's amazing if you haven't been phenomenal place to visit hiking trails beautiful forests fantastic beer scene. It's almost too good of a beer. Seeing my my gut will tell you and you get a lot more like it like. It's a lot more space and it's actually still really affordable place The food scene is awesome. And there's so much love in terms of just like a really cool town certain areas. Are they have these like fun. Little pocket neighborhoods with all these little coffee offi shops and a Lotta rain. But you know that's why you get the beautiful forest and the amazing summers. How did you meet Dario? And when did you realize she was the one mentor on twitter after she automatically follow me because I was suggested user back in the suggested user list was hard coded so I have to thank for that one. He was. CEO CEO time and added to the suggested user list. I started getting all these followers all of a sudden and then having to be one of them and she re re tweeted something that I had tweeted. It's actually about Dr Andrew. Weil and I was like. WHO's this little hot? Little forty forty icon Suman on that and clicked on her profile and we ended up meeting beaten up for a bottle of wine and I would say I knew she was the one when I found someone that was into Zelda. That was Super Geeky. 'cause she's a neuroscientist. Scientists you know obviously really attractive and awesome in also just really willing to to work on herself and always be improving living and treating our relationship like we're in this together versus so confrontations with her as it always obviously happens with with everyone one have always been. Let's figure out a way to solve this and that we will both want the same thing. We both want healthy loving relationship and so working working on this together versus it being me versus you is such a nice refreshing way of approaching things so just finding that in someone say you hit the lottery with that one brother thank you. I appreciate that as she's awesome. She is. How do you network with people? Assuming you're starting from scratch. Oh that's a good question so for start from scratch crash I would say meet up so your friend go to where you're gonNA find like minded folks be yourself. Don't try I mean the second you try and be someone you're not it's going to be so apparent and then use Actually the workplace for a lot of this so just meeting people. The same company is a less intimidating thing to do and you know just sitting at the lunch table with a different group of people. Ask them about where they work. If you're at a big company offering assistance and how you can help out in certain ways. He's I would say that those are great places to start. What's your favorite Japanese whiskey under a hundred dollars? Okay so I was really glad to receive this question. It's a tricky question because there's no such thing. Japanese was these are just insanely overpriced right. Now I mean you can get a horrible Japanese. It is whiskey by some unknown brand. Don't do that so the one I will tell you that I think is fantastic. You like that Chocolate with Vicha Sea salt on it. Oh yeah that Kinda like savory sweet Flavor profile totally. Yeah if you're a fan of that the Yoichi makes a whiskey called the PD in salty. And it's two hundred and eighty nine dollars a bottle. Oh it's Pricey I get that but you know these things are not getting cheaper. So it's like a little bit of investment in in. I know it's really pricey but you asked about Japanese whisky whiskey. So like Java's are not cheap like just give some context here you go and get a blended BIKI and it's GonNa be like eight hundred bucks a bottle plus and it just gets crazier and crazier from in there. So this is a killer bottle if you're willing to make the investment and It has that components of Ip Denison saltiness that aged aged fund fund. Nice little friend just to sit on But I I got I by Java's whiskies from a place called D.. Kanta because you can really trust awesome You can find cheaper place to define this probably but it's like I don't know that I would fully trust all the spot so D. E. K. A. N. T. A.. Dot Com is my go to place for the great Japanese importer. What's your favorite book of two thousand? Nineteen I've got a few I would say. Ah The untethered soul by Michael Singer was fantastic. One thing that I did enjoy a was this book called Buddha by Karen Armstrong and it really is a biography of. who was the Buddha? Like you know you hear these things like okay. Buddha religion you know. There's all these books on. How to meditate eight? How the Buddha? But how about just like the human person where where did where did he come from. What kind of houseful did he grow up in? What happened when he became Kim enlightened how did he gain following like just understanding and writing? That story has been fascinating to read and so yeah. Buddha by Karen Armstrong is is definitely a good one. I've got one for you because I remember you and I both had a pretty bad fear of flying which Oh yeah. They gave into a love of bloody Marys at seven in the morning. Yeah thanks for telling everybody that. There's a great book called Cockpit confidential everything you need to know about air travel by Patrick Smith. He's a pilot it. It came out in twenty fifteen. I get this book on audible and I just put. Every time I go on a plane. I started listening to it on my way to the airport and can just skip around around. I feel safer in a plane now than I do standing in the airport. That's amazing. It is unbelievable this will this will get anybody over fear flying. I tell you because he just goes through everything about what. It's like to be a pilot. How safe being on the plane is because statistically that is the safest place in the airport from from the time you're in your house to to win you're on that plane? Everything in between is more dangerous than you be actually being on that plane even when it's on the ground yeah I mean I've been walking through so those little tunnels to get the plan. You feel like those things during a collapse on you. I tell you man I will say that. I fly so much now that I've gotten over a lot of that. I think once you do once you fly like like four times a month. It doesn't really impact us much and then also do it. A lot of the surrender stuff were like There's a great by Michael Singer on surrender. That that one will really help out a lot. but yeah. I'm excited to read this. I'm definitely down but that's not that said you know if it's like six o'clock and I'm taking a later flight I no longer have to do the morning. Bloody Marys raise but definitely from later flight. I'm like yeah why not have a you know a a beer or something before I get on the plane are you doing the Wim Hof method this went am yeah. I'M GONNA start on in December so stay tuned on Instagram at Kevin Rose. And you'll see all of my crazy ice bath. Experiments also kind of outline what the methods all about do you have any falter elements like OCD. ADHD oh man. Yeah absolutely. I've always been someone that ruminates a lot on on things so I've always kind of had that that issue where if something enters my head and I.

When you already know I'm GonNa be in this particular department? If you're someone like me that had taken a little bit of code but also I love to do. I was Doing some early display ad stuff. When I first got started in kind of tracking down our of our conversion away from the you know the actual ad add source all the way down to the network that we purchased the ad out all way to converting to a shopping cart or cart? Abandonment rate I just loved excel and loved to jump into that so when I was at my first couple startups it was doing a little bit of everything Just kind of trying to see what what I gravitated towards and what I really loved so yeah I mean. If you're if you're a coder I would get serious about something especially given the kind of crazy demand for on the machine learning and AI side. I'm that's a no brainer to go into those very specific niche kind of industries early on because in five ten years. You'll be making some serious dollars in those those fields. I know that when I was at Google I had heard that some of our higher end kind of folks were gosh was it was over. Four million dollars in total copy year for those types of coating positions which just insanity but it just goes to show you how few people at that time. We're actually doing that work. And it it was Is Very sought after in so they could command those salaries. But yeah I'd say if if you really don't know what's going on in any kind of like well. I think I like this but I am not sure. I mean when you're so early in your career you you can afford to go and spend three years to three years at something and in the end up bailing on saying like I just don't like this and then jump over to the the next thing so don't be afraid or feel like if you've gone down a path for years and I wouldn't say this even as an adult later on in life life you've gone down this path and you keep beating yourself up and you know it's not for you at an life's too short It's worth taking a few steps back to to move forward word. Definitely definitely and on the generalization side of things. I just want to chime in that. When I was at the companies I was always a coder but I got to know every different part of the business business? Just because it makes you a better coder because you know what the business goals are. You know what the marketing goals are and it helps you align what you're doing when you design your software and you throw out ideas for new features. It really makes you more valuable to the team. And it's not that you're GONNA have to go you know you're going to be right you know see. PHP Java script doing design work working all that stuff. Not that kind of generalization but just knowing having a working functioning knowledge of the startup that you're working in like try and get your fingers and everything because it's GonNa make you more valuable to the team in the long run. Yeah absolutely and even if like let's say you're a engineer and you eventually want to make your your way to the management track. You're going to have to have those skills anyway way right because if you're managing other engineers part of your responsibilities not only obviously managing that team but then also kind of working with other related teams you know the marketing departments the the CEO on the other organizations internally to to fulfill that vision. So you're gonNA need to have those those skills all right moving on. How often do you meditate? Yeah I mean that's changed quite a bit over the years I would say that Initially I kind of did it to on a more prescriptive kind of the thing where I was meditating to relieve anxiety and just kind of using it because I was going through something in life where I felt like meditation would help me me and then you know later I realized that that's actually the worst time to meditate. You Really WanNa have a habit and build up a practice practice so that you don't even get in those situations to begin with and so for me that that looks like at least and this will seem like a very short amount of time. Yeah but at least ten minutes Sometimes twenty minutes a day but the key here is ten minutes every single day so treating this like something that cannot be skipped tipped. Everyone can find ten minutes. I don't care how busy you are but just making sure to keep up that that daily cadence so that it is a part of your life and that yeah well those benefits will compound over time And I I think it's a it's all you really need. I I was I doing longer for meditations but then you know after when life all of a sudden it hits from a different direction you realize i. I don't have time to sit for forty minutes a day. I was doing twenty minutes in the day and tournament tonight and then all of a sudden an one one of those falls off and then all of the second one falls off you know like well I gotta go meet a friend for dinner tonight. So I can't do in. You're not meditating at all so yes sticking working with a daily practice that you you promise to yourself internally that you just will not move are sacrificing for anything else And during those ten minutes I think is the key. How is is your practice changed from when you didn't have kids too when you had kids? Is that when it started to fall off well. My practice has changed quite a bit in that of study with a bunch of different disciplines over time I was very lucky to live across the street from the San Francisco Zen Center when I moved over on page street there and I would pop in and an actually took my first training and meditation With the Zen monks there and learned about Zaza and all the proper ways proper to sit in the how you would enter the temple and like all these like very formal things that they have when you practice Zen so I was lucky in. That was an hour long meditation that I was doing there seated but thin one. The APP started coming out. So you know head. Space launched in eventually come came out. It started just practicing at home with a cushion there and I was moving to twenty minutes a day. I think is pretty much where I was at the night started. Ti studied TM Meditation which is a form of mantra meditation. They recommend that you do twenty minutes in the morning in tournaments tonight. That's very mantra. Meditations a very intense thing. It's like It's it's different than the than the zen or or more of a pasta kind of with my infamous based meditation and more recently. I've gotten serious about that. Mindfulness based style. I think Sam Harris has a fantastic course but it's the fifty day ten minutes a day course on the pasta style meditation. I fear that a lot of the meditation APPs. Oh concluded the one that I most recently worked on. They're great for an introduction and a lot of them are really great for prescriptive stuff so I have a fear of flying. I'M GONNA take a fear of flying pack and things like that but they don't go really elite really deep for people that want to take meditations seriously. So that's the one thing I really loved about Sams Course. He really is for meditation for people that want to go. Oh a little bit deeper. If you could call yourself ten years ago and talk for one minute what would you tell your younger self. Oh.

Ask us anti may AU. A ask us anything. How how? Is that when cartoon sees something that they like? Oh, yeah. But it's a it's a horn of some sort. Thank you, mythical beasts to a horn replied to our request for questions. We log questions we like if we don't get to all of them, and we'll get to later as long as we carefully. Get to your quote, we do with the questions that we don't like we print them out on poster boards, and we put lighter fluid on them. And we burn them individually. Right. It's it's really what we do when we're not doing what you see us. Doing camera is we are. I mean, we are burning so much now it's so wasteful. It's why we smell like soot, but we call it the cleansing ceremony we call it. So if you ready for another clinic, you submit bag questions just know that you're fueling the giant bonfire of poster board that we have constantly going in the back parking lot. Let's let's just get into some questions. Oh, but I I won't. Teased. We got this new idea..

I guess we don't really look at sales numbers, I presume, we're getting more Email. So I presume people are buying. Thank you, all I could use some help. I'm glad I have good health insurance. Because of that. I mean, people are sending you emails. So either something terrible has happened. Yeah. Or people are buying the game. Yeah.

Well, what you would have thing to tell me why. Why did I our oil save it for the show? Oh, no. Well, so kind of like it was okay. So I wanted to give our listeners a hot tip about staying relaxed through these trying times. Oh, I'd love to hear it. And the tip is smoke weed everyday seriously. Gonna say I'm not saying that would hurt. Yeah. You could certainly. Okay. So, you know, we talked about this on the podcast before like white noise pink noises thing, it's a different kind of noise. Oh, yeah. I actually I have a preference for pink. No. Is that just like when are women the singer, the singer pink is just singing, think noise? It's it's white noise. Accepted cost thirty percent more shut up. Now. I'm getting that's amazing. It's it's noise for her. It's smaller. Well, you can you can listen to it with your most. Delicate little lady years of pink noise is like the same things white noise, except like the decibels on on some end of the noises turned up, so some people respond better to it. Anyway. So I'd noise noise is good. I like noise I have found in my most favorite noise is rain, rain, noise, thunder noise. And so now, I got these new headphones because you know, I do a lot of audio, and I broke my headphones. So both of those are reasons why about headphones, and I like them so wear them all the time. And it's also called on the act your ear muffs and people are like seeing me walk around town like all that cool girl listened to some cool music. No, I'm listening to the rain. I loved that goal to fake rain twenty four hours a day. That's amazing to keep myself from having a panic attack at any given moment, I listen to rain to fall asleep. When I'm when I want to take a little nap you net. It's great. It is leads really good. And if you have like, a bluetooth speaker or whatever almonds amazing that's under can. Rumble, you it'll rumble you into your soul. I like that we live. We live in the in Chicago, and it rains here a lot. Anyway, it does. But like more I want more I want more..

"To AMA at impact theory dot com. That's AMA an impact eerie dot com. Finally, separating that out into its own Email account. All right without further ado, let us dive into the questions this is from Nikki. Hey, Tom recently. I feel like I've hit rock bottom. Mentally of always struggled with self confidence and the feeling of being worthy. I finished my degree as a teacher as one of the best in my year, while still pursuing my passion for music recording. Now playing shows on weekends at cetera. Instead of being proud of the things I've accomplished I recently started to feel pretty burned out and find that making music doesn't make me happy anymore as it's just more and more frustrating. I know the quality wise, I plan a pretty high level. However, I feel like a failure. And like everyone else in. The businesses worthier than me is starts eating me up recently at the point up to the point that I was wondering if I'm really an artist or just an idiot any ideas on what is wrong with my perspective, and what I can do to stop slipping into depression and a feeling of being constantly burned out. Yes. And this is something that. I didn't see coming when I started all of this doing QNA's. I didn't see how many people are really in need of falling in love with what they're doing falling in love with themselves. How many people struggle with this? So first of all the people that you feel are worthier than you. I just promise you that the vast majority of them feel the same way you do because the metric that you're using to judge yourself is is a very disempowering metric, and so what you're doing is saying worldly, how am I successful compared to others? How am I successful? Instead of saying do I fucking love playing the music or not. And why do I want to get good at this? What am I trying to do who am I trying to impact impact not impress not the amount of money that you wanna make you've got to putting fall in love with what you're doing? And this is like, we're it's a fucking pandemic. People are not enjoying what they're doing. First of all if you're burned out take time off like I it really drives me nuts that people look at me as captain grind. And I'm telling you right now the thing that you should look at me as captain love. What you do? I love what I do. And the whole story that I tell people about when I went in and for six years, it was just grinding it out. It was just chasing money, which can insert is success was just chasing success. I had a weird fucking metric that I was judging everything by I was chasing that it just so happens that the metric was money, but that metric could have been anything other than how it made me feel whether or not that I loved it. Now when you're doing that everything just chips, wait, you grinds. Wait you because every second that you're spending doing that. You're not spending something that fills you up. It makes you feel good. There are things in this world that will make you just feel intrinsically. Good. And I know I sound probably agitated right now. The fair word to use. But this is. This is me loving people. This is me wanting to see you guys happy, and scratch that this is me wanting to see you guys fight three river of shit to find fulfilment because at the end of the day that is going to serve you. Now when you take the time to fall in love with music or to stop doing music, which by the way would be fine. But if you're stopping music because you feel like an idiot that is a judgment that you're placing on yourself based on this external metric, which actually has nothing to do with whether or not you love it..

"So that it's questions or AM AMA at impact theory dot com AMA at impact dot com, which is actually going to need to make that Email address. But by the time you hear this that Email address will have been made poor chase been drowning sifting through because everything goes to connect. So if you have a question send that question two A M A at impact theory dot com, and he's setting an alarm right now. All right, guys. Thank you so much for submitting the questions always incredibly meaningful. And the first one is from Natasha shivani. Hi, tom. My question is in relation to learning. I believe learning in itself is a skill. I've been trying to build myself esteem around being an avid learner. But I've noticed that. It's not it. I've noticed but what I've noticed. Does that I'm not learning at a fast paced, could you break down some skills required for fishing learning? I know repetition and doing things routinely over and over again is advised. But what else if you had to breakdown learning skills into five simple steps? What would they be? How does one monitor officiant learning and improve on this? All right. I wish I had a piece of paper and a pencil. I could actually give you five precisely. But I will go off the top. Okay. So number one is going to be area of interest. I find that. The biggest thing the learning is having the enthusiasm that everything that you encounter actually gives you more energy in your excited to go down the path. And there's just like you wanna share it? You want to tell people and talk about it. That's really really big. So identifying the things that you enjoy learning about that's really big. And I'll give you an example. So Lisa when I first met her the thing that she loved learning about, and I don't know how to take this was serial killers. Man. She went hard for that serial killer cake, and that was always. Really interesting to me like getting her to read nonfiction was next to impossible unless it was about serial killers. Now, thankfully, she just found a broader array of interest other than that..
