"akimbo" Discussed on Bravo for the B-side Podcast

"No. This is this looks like A. A, sit down and watch. Kennedy movie well. We put a lot of things on. Just you know just to be in the for. Stare at or noise in the background while doing it yourself, yeah. This is like looks like we're probably GONNA have to pay attention to this well in head. Daniel radcliff, so that was used on point because we've seen on his other stuff, can he? Down of really well. He's an extraordinarily talented man and he's done extremely well since. I mean obviously historic was in the Harry Potter Franchise Right but since then he's done really well at establishing himself outside of that as a you know, that is not. The full range of what I can do, no. I will go on record. Saying the Harry Potter films. They helped launch his career. The gave him a career says really all he did. Most the way through right why I remember. You know yeah, but We'll go ahead. I remember an interview with him where they're talking about star wars and the interviewers was surprised that he had never seen star wars right and he was like well. What were you doing Daniel rose like Making a franchise. But not a huge fan of the movies myself. And I'm just going to say Daniel Radcliffe was great in them. You can see from the first to the last him grow as an actor. But also go on record saying Harry Potter did not give him the room to fully. Exercise His talents. Right it was a tightly taught low beamed bridge that he had to work under. But once he got out from under that. His shit has been fantastic The selling point of this movie is Daniel Radcliffe because in all the things he's done. He is a natural comedian. On Film. I was the second time we're watching I'm taking notes I'm thinking what if so-and-so's in this? One of so-and-so's this? I don't think they would've I. I would not have enjoyed it as much. That's what I love all these little clips and shit because He can pull off. Too simple words in a line. Right that whole in the gradient tastic Nobody's GONNA kill boy. I sent me of course. And on paper. That would not be super funny. Right I could say okay. We gotTA humor moment. Let's talk about how. How we can do this Daniel Radcliffe Paul's this shit off it ten out of ten. You know five by five. Whatever you WANNA call it. That look supposed to fucking explained. He his voice, his expressions everything. He is a master actor, a master performer. And I love the fact that he's in all these little things. Yeah, very strange movies, because while we're GONNA end up owning this like I said for for that for a number of reasons, we're GONNA talk about. He is phenomenal in this in the folks of your Daniel Radcliffe. Fan and you haven't seen this. See it. even if you're not see this movie. Yeah, it is on prime prime for free right now. So. No prime video might program. Everyone everyone knows what it is fine. No was fucking to is shipping anymore, check? But this is an example of what happens when you take a what would look on paper to be questionable. Maybe a little weird right and we said there's nothing wrong with weird. I don't think on paper. It would have as much punch. Reading it I wouldn't like be like all. This is going to be fucking fantastic. I would have looked at the script and I would have said you know I like this. Let's do this right and then getting the right people the fact that they got Dana Radcliffe is. Food it's excelled. In Ad I can't say it enough this this. Is Probably the most enjoyable weird fucking movie I have seen in years. Yes! yeah, I mean the only thing that. Honestly I feel like is comparable to. It is horns, which also stars Daniel Radcliffe and it. It was as good as it was because of him. Was a bit darker. Yes and a bit Tamer. I was think we should say. It was tamer guns. Akimbo is a is. A It is there's more shooting in here then saving private Ryan. Sands of Iwo Jima. Any war film you can imagine. They don't have near enough. Gunshots is in guns, Akimbo. This movie is almost non stop guns. You can have some of those clips. It's loud. It's motion. Between the frenetic. On screen and the camera sometimes to go with it. There is not A. Passable breathing, moment. In this movie, which is fine, it is fucking fun. It makes it fun. Yeah. I I lost track of what I was talking. You'll give back to well. Yeah, well talked about music. Okay? Quick while you're bringing it back up. The music in here. We've talked about how music makes or breaks a movie. So you know. Sleepless in Seattle. Up, bring that up again. Like the movie, but it's hard to watch because the music choices. Just they don't fit. I'm also not a fan of like I said. remixes in techno mixes of a lot of stuff, but holy Shit. They did the the mark on this, and not just the songs that they picked except for Super Freak which was original. Threat James. Don't remix him. The just the the composed music. It's it's techno house. Music! In it actually made me think of Tron legacy. The reason that Trond. People have mixed feelings about it, but tron legacy I enjoyed very much because I could get into it because they scored it. They had daft punk come in. And score it with his again techno and house. And it worked, it brought the world, and it wasn't just like. Dance Club pure through he. Made it match the aesthetics and the film. It it made it really immersive and. That's what guns Akimbo did the the non. Songs. Well that's a it sets a tone with this film. If the music hadn't been the way it was an and that's matching the performances, and you know everything else about it It would've.

"Hello everybody this is the King of rock and Roll Alan freed with coral rock and roll dance body and the big beat in popular music in America so gather the gang ralf. Are Rockin. Good time with our own big rock and roll bands. If it weren't for Alan freed we certainly wouldn't call it rock and roll and we probably would have a very different take on what popular music is supposed to sound like. Hey it's seth and this is a Kimbro we'll be back in the second to talk about curation Payola and what happens next but first. Here's a message from our sponsor and hit seth. The world has gone topsy. Turvy and many of us are working at home. Staying in place to Flatten. The curve of the virus and working at home can be disorienting. It can get lonely. I know because I've been doing it off and on since one thousand nine hundred six to help you out Akimbo. We've put together a co working space. Virtual co working space. It's free it'll run for the next month. I hope you'll check it out. It's IT Akimbo. Dot Com right at the top of the page. It'll be a place for you to find the others to have those water cooler conversations to feel a sense of connection in a world where we need more connection checkout AKIMBO DOT com. We hope to see their hanging there. Alan freed lived a heroic short and controversial life in the public eye. Many people credit him with popularizing the term rock and roll he nurtured and built the careers of many artists. His show which would have been a total breakthrough for him on television. Turning him. Into the First Casey Kasem Slash Dick Clark was cancelled after four weeks. Because it featured a black musician dancing with a white woman but what Alan freed is best known for is wrecking his career by doing something that curator's have been doing since the beginning of time in nineteen fifty nine. He got in trouble with the law and ultimately kicked off. The Airways for Paola. Paola not illegal. At the time was the common practice of record labels paying deejays to feature their songs it mattered because Dj's determined what was going to get listened to there. Were only a few radio stations. In every town there was no spotify. There was no youtube. There was no serious. All there were were a few radio stations in every town a song. That didn't get played. Didn't get heard in a song that didn't get hurt. Didn't get bought and so it was a sensible thing for a record label to pay the program directors and the DJ. Unfortunately for Alan freed people who weren't crazy about rock and roll and people who thought that the curator Dj should be an independent agent decided to put an end to it. There were congressional hearings. There were laws passed and Alan Freed. Career went downhill. He died less than fifty years old from cirrhosis of the liver unknown in California. So we begin with this question. Was it okay for Alan freed to get paid to promote some records and not others? So let's go forward a bunch of years. I come out with a book called the dip. Maybe ten or fifteen years ago I retain the audio book rights was easier in those days. 'cause they didn't sell many copies and I called up Steve. Riggio Steve's brother was the CEO of Barnes and noble and Steve was always inactive player on the scene. There and I said Steve. Can we meet and talk about this book? And so I did a deal with Barnes and noble. You could get the CD of my book. The dip at the cash register for nine bucks a really good deal for Barnes and noble cause. I sold them the copies for two dollars. Each Barnes and noble made a huge profit by pudding that CD at the cash register more than they would have for somebody else's book that went through a normal publisher or consider the end cap at your local supermarket. That's what people in the food business called the end of the aisle. If you go the next time you're in the supermarket you'll see that there's Pepsi lined up in huge rose at the end or maybe it's coke. How come it sometimes coke and sometimes Pepsi will? The answer is simple because coke or Pepsi take turns paying the supermarket money to feature their product on the end cap. What's going on at Barnes and noble. What's going on with Alan freed? What's going on with the supermarket is all the same thing which is if you have power to put an idea. In front of people it is entirely possible in a world based on scarcity that you will sell that power to the highest acceptable bidder. Now the word acceptable is important because a curator doesn't last very long if they're busy selling out to people who are selling something lousy so curation curation as we've learned in the first two minutes of this podcast can be easily misused. It can be misused because what you can do is go to Chuck Berry and say you know that Song maybelline jt nature..

"Which did it achieve that? Maybe maybe because who would really watch this movie. People who like video games and stuff maybe that kind of thing which were there and then in the end the conclusion he's clearly it's not condoned the behavior and there are more realistic about it. Which I like like the whole thing with the wasn't annoying about like girls and stuff no so I appreciate that. I'm glad that it's taking the time to even try to tackle something like this but I feel as though the audience who would see. This would be pretty much. Just gamers a lot of time. That being said the reason that they probably enjoy this movie is because of the violence and the video game style. Violence you know that that would be my worry if this was a mass release. That's one thing 'cause there'd be more people saying it but it's just on Amazon as yet that's that's the the issue especially now. Yeah that again. I'm happy I was happy to watch this. Yeah it's not great but it's so weird and different than that I just had to. I sat back. Let it wash over me you know. Let Danny just do his thing. And he's so fun in it you can't you can't you. Can't go out a movie being like the time if he's in it. Yeah you know what I mean. He's so good he's got the charisma and what's interesting about someone like him because there aren't really many like him in his position. Harry having done Harry Potter and the it's similar for Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson with a twilight with them. They're all what maybe thirty ish maybe younger. They're fairly young. I don't think there are thirty. Okay they're all your ads. They're all pretty young and have more than enough money to not work again. Yeah I know they have complete freedom as to what to choose and they appreciate because they are young. They have a more open. Mind set as to what to choose. They're not like now no but they're not like fifty or sixty years old. You know choosing what like here. I need to be this refined actor. He not all like that. I'm just saying in general all right for example doing guns Akimbo that may not necessarily earn Dana Radcliffe. More respect. Tell you every one. Have you all seen a horn? That's why I'm saying he's just has fun he he's able to have fun and not worry too much about how people may see them because it really can't really be touched for many reasons So people like Daniel Radcliffe and Robert Pattinson bar. What I think there's a little bit of a dvr. I think it was like and part me becoming back together. 'cause Christian suit and our parents were not very successful. I feel like for a while because people ragged on their performance. Sure lie and they were just Kinda like messy like they clearly didn't WanNa be there. Whatever Interior Boys fully embraced obviously? It's totally different experiences. I'm just saying like but I take point. Yeah I'm sure that they may be saw Daniel Radcliffe as to how he was going about an post franchise acting but it seems as though all of them have gotten to the point where they are all at his level as to choosing more films being more risky not really caring if it's not a masterpiece of a film. It's just they're having fun. They're choosing interesting roles and they're able to do that with complete gravitate exactly and I think that's really cool because there aren't many actors like them in Hollywood right. You're able to do that right. You know yeah. I think the thing was a dating rackliff. Movie is like I can so Jay Joan Hall of. He's in it. I've said this before. The man's got my taste basically. He's in it. I'm GonNa like it and I know that almost always sure yeah data radcliffe. I know I love him and I just love looking at his face and he just makes me happy and joyous good actor right but I know that whatever movies in there's something to it they're going to be meet like purposeful meaningful like period. I love imperium. Yeah I can't think of the name that was putting on you. Okay but so either. It's somebody that imperium which is also blow risky about on the show by the way with Kaley right. Yeah we did that we did. We did that thing Or yeah like horns like crazy regardless. I feel like what he does it. There's something to it that makes it worth watching for sure like that. I can rely on with him and it's not going to be boring right. Yeah and I don't mean to say them choosing roles in an open way or with a more freedom and brevity I don't mean that they're choosing carelessly. I just mean that they compared to other actors in their at their level. They're able to have more fun with that. You know and they still. They're still choosing films with intention and purpose but they're not really worried if okay. Is this going to progress my career for the next ten years? It's like here guns Akimbo. Sounds like a lot of fun and has a little something underneath as well. I'm GonNa do that and enjoy it but I can still go. And do something more serious playwright. Exactly yeah you know. Same thing with Robert Pants and he can go to the lighthouse and now he can go and be Batman. You know. It's just there well. We'll see I mean. Well he pulled off. I don't know but he's he's doing he's doing. Is You know the Batman. I guess there's a TV Batman. I don't know which one it is but it had. He had blue velvet gloves and he had a very funny little curly eyebrows painted onto his mask. Yes Adam West. One must be so funny classic. I never knew. Yeah those were the days anyways. It's a cool movie. It's not for everyone by no means like the shooting and the yes see. I'm a big shoot 'em up fan downed Gore maybe grounds more but having this type of dog. Yeah so I said it. Okay Yeah I love a good shoot em up movie. I'm all about that. I don't yeah. Okay she didn't know not I figured and so the movie as the movie has plenty of that. It's not going to appeal to a lot of people. It's so Connecticut and at times incoherent I had had a little more television show than I would. Yeah for sure Yeah Tau. It has the Color Palette and editing style of suicide squad. Yeah like the constant superimposing that onscreen after introduce everyone in a cool way. Yeah you know some of it works not all of it a lot of the time but hey Nah thanks for trying. I wish is a little more like sham. The daddy maybe keep a little more in. That office founded thing. Yeah Oh for sure. Yeah that would have been good. Yeah and I thought the girl. The girl I'm guessing is the daughter of Hugo Weaving. Maybe no no I like her. She's been lots of stuff I've seen. She was in Brighton. No Castle rock the thing with the I don't Care Shield also. That was good though. She's good Matt. She is also in that they knew saw. She was also in that show. I watch that got cancelled. Hugo weaving is now gone that it smells her uncle okay. Samara yeah I like her. She's been around. She was in that movie that we should have probably with Adam. Brody hiding seeker summing. That's all it's called. You know they get married and reading or not. Yeah I've been wanting to see that. Yeah what's up? There's not a whole lot to say about the movie because it is what it is. You know if you don't like it i. I don't think the director would be upset but you know with him. Oh Yeah Oh yeah. So what's the what's going on? I don't know anything about this. We didn't know K. A. Lily found that it was too late. Okay but there's like Major. It's very confusing major drama apparently in like a private message group between the riders Which I was one writer credited whatever but probably they were like at least three ladies involved with rioting and then director Dude Cher. Yeah and so. On so forth bio Nov. He was in the chat in any case she used the n word in the chat right. Okay it got made pub. Somebody made a public. She attempted suicide very upsetting. Yes very sad than he went on a like a twitter rampage saying like literally including like a murderer. Like say like you tried to kill her and stuff like that like crazy stuff. Everybody's saying the paper a mad enough to this like apparently he went on the official movie pages twitter pages well and just like went off. He went off on people like he criticizing he went off on everyone and the argument was you killed this. You made her. She says the word you Gilder. But she's not dead but you tried to kill her but I think that she attempted suicide was separate then the okay but that's gossip. It's all very sad messy. Okay Yeah I did not know anything about that so often look into it. Yeah it's all very sad messy but like I like You know it's a little I don't know who are we to but right Yeah you know crazy well. Anything else really hurt. It's Amazon debut. Show did the rounds as well. It just didn't get picked but was at the reviews have been pretty mixed to say the least. Yeah so it's just lack. Look like for all the stuff in it for all the color and everything. It's like really lackluster Which is Kinda sucks like. There's really a lot of good bones there no pun intended. Or even you know and it's not my deal but I can still really see it You know I agree. Yeah and even their friendship with like super lacking which I appreciate. That like doesn't super need to be there for the but mammy with their skill Harley Quinn in there I liked the ex girlfriend. Yeah I like to choose just normal. Choose to try and do her. Dang darndest I liked the end of the two but it was also like what I think it was a very glossy and it was yeah. Where's you feel like? You won't be mad at. It feels like maybe long not that I wanted to be longer but you know what I mean like I just felt like it was like boom and then the ending was like if you're really worked through it like sweating in the theater like it goes through things so quickly that you don't really have much time to really process it. It spends a lot of like we said depends a lot of time on fighting and it tells you the plot points and it's like batting gonNA fly. You know just finding I.

"Kind of you take degenerate future you to take dystopia future and you kind of create the space where laws and society degrades to a point where things like. This are acceptable. Yeah I gotcha. So it's almost like a take on like not so much pro gun but antisocial media around guns or something. Yeah it's just like guns are not You know guns guns are here to stay. I think there's no there's no getting rid of all the guns. I think like a hundred guns per person in the country and something like that so I think this is what people think could happen in a world like that. Which is our world right. Now you know during this political season. I think there've been a couple of mass shootings and I didn't hear about it because politics like yeah. They want to keep it quiet. I've heard the I've heard more about the political race then the couple of shootings that I heard just blips of of course. I was sick with the flu so I was only. I didn't hear a lot of news and what I was well. I didn't want to turn on the news too much. But it'll make you right. You want to heal. But I like this as you know we said Harry Potter Movie Harry Potter again stretching and trying to do stuff to break out of the mold. Oh Harry Potter and yet it's still Harry Potter right. I mean does he. He never has to work again but he wants to. And it's like an it's sad and it's and it's great and he gets to do things like this that he might want to do but I don't know his he typecast with the rest is live as Harry Potter. Well that's probably why the beard over or is Donald Sutherland. Typecast as the Hippie Tank Commander Z. Ready so okay. Maybe the point but he didn't shut it and he had fifty years right. You know I don't know as he typecast. Is Harry Potter? I don't think so I mean I think at some point people break out of roles and I mean if you like how old was he when he started eighteen or something. Yeah yeah I mean say say fifty years. Old dudes still acting. Do you think people are going to be like? Oh Yeah you're you're Harry Potter. You're the eight year old. Yeah why do you think so? I don't know I I kind of caught glimpses. You know what? He's trying to be nice in this movie to me. That was kind of Harry Potter. Ask and when he's trying to kick the girl out of the car at the end I was like. He's trying to be so nice genuine about it that I thought it was it was it just felt very subdued. You know well. Maybe the beard too is part of why he's where he is. But I mean when you think about it though I mean he's been in holy cow on IMDB and he's been in like one two three four five. I mean twenty some odd movies and or television shows yeah robot chicken and to dope Queens. Never even heard of that. But he's been in a Lotta stuff since then so I don't know I mean I think he'll eventually get away from here. I didn't think of Harry Potter when I saw this good. Yeah I I mean. I think he's okay. He'll he'll be alright he'll survive. He'll survive right so guns Akimbo. Would you watch this though or I if I could get an to see it? Because she's a huge Harry Potter Fan and is the one who gave me. This gave me this trailer. So what I she might be interested in this movie and strikes me is like someone who would not be until the gun play though. Yeah she likes a good action movie really. Yeah wow she would be the last person I would say so. Here's a question though. Would you show this with your kids? Probably not yeah. I didn't think so and I think this is one of those movies. Where just the Gore factor of the guns bolted to his hands was just a little barbaric right that that bryce would be guarding his face all time. Rj RJ could watch this. Rg would be into it but anything that doesn't have kylo Ren Adam driver in it. She doesn't want to watch it. Here's the thing though like well. My kids are definitely much younger. However let's say they were the age of your kids you know what ten and fourteen okay. Assuming ten and fourteen. I probably still wouldn't for no other reason than I don't know where this movie is going to go exactly so there's been things we wa- like perfect example. The boys are watching very umn. And of course what's the question they asked at the end? Daddy what is the Middle Finger mean? I had no clue they were going to show. You know the Middle Finger when they're flipping off the kid and the kids flipping off them. You know and and screaming and so it's those sorts of things like I don't know where it's going to go and I don't WanNa have to be like whoops. That was a mistake. Sorry Kiddos I'm not I can't explain it to you but just don't do it. That's right that's right and never say your number one that like this all right. So let's finish up with the brief marvel sizzle. Yeah so we you know we had the super bowl past weekend two weekends ago right and there are a lot of commercials on it a lot of a lot of ads but this one for. Marvel's new take in the cinematic. The marvel cinematic universe going into Disney. Plus so this is a trailer of this called the big game spot now. Okay Marvel sizzle. It's like a sizzle reel of marvel going into Disney plus. It looks like it's not just saying. Hey all your favorite marvel movies are in Disney. Plus it saying this is new new content coming out it is new content it is new content so but is it a show urge future movies. Is this a series? Like I don't even know what this is. Okay so you have. I guess you have to be in the know of what's going on. You have to work in Disney's marketing department to know to COMECON. You have to be like in. Yeah I know I know space but these a suite of series so I bet they're going to be like ten episode series again. I'm not speaking for Disney. I don't know I don't have any inside. Knowledge of Disney plus Disney or marble. So each character has their own short series. The own their own series. And I wouldn't necessarily call it short. I would say that now. Ten is the new normal. You know I think okay sure. Ten and eight episodes is a typical season of a new series. Yeah and we'll if the frequency ticks up from once a year because I think that's going to be the next thing that might happen but yeah so falcon and the the soldier going to have a series together. Where he's GonNa Falcons going to be the new Captain America which was alluded to at the end of the infinity. War and game right right and then Wanda vision is this new. Sitcom esque take on Wanda and visions life together. If scarlet witch and Wanda hadn't or I guess vision it hadn't perished you know and then Loki has his own series so those are at least three series. I think those are the ones right. So can I just say that I take issue with Falcon becoming the new Captain America? It's like everybody has their character. Marvel has like five thousand characters or something ridiculous. I mean it's unheard of the number of characters that they have but it's as if to say you know you played Falcon for all these years and Falcon was like a character. Nobody actually cared about me like you as an actor. We'd like to keep you on how you just like. The other guys contract was due. He didn't want to renew it. So how about we just keep you on but you know like the audience. Polls better with Captain America Than Falcon. But like. You're actually like a likable guy. So we'll just make you the new captain America because you're old characters meaningless and no one actually gave a shit you know and I. It's just like I just don't get why you would like abandoned one guy's character to take on a new persona or something. I think they did it. They did it and they did it in the comic books so there is a there is a history of this. I Wanna I wanNA find. Oh so we have stand blame. Yes so so. Stan was like well on whatever we put out. Falcon Comic Book..

"Yes yes I know exactly what you mean. Yeah so does this take place in the Commonwealth somewhere. It seems like it. I mean right side steering. Yeah she's she's on the other side she's driving on the other side. The Guy Seems like he's Australian right or something right maybe the the little host. Oh the host guy okay. Yeah I know. Is that dude? Like he's like wrinkled porcelain so creepy. He's like the dolls and toys story for and you're right ventriloquist's doll you know well and it's so funny. I'm like hey timmy. Let's watch toys away. That one scared. It's like yeah I get it now. You know 'cause like this guy scares me like you look at a dollar and you're just thinking to yourself. Well just the Dow but now you look at this guy and you're like okay. He's creepy. They build whole horror movies around that ventriloquist doll. So that's true they do that. That's true in the neighborhood also reminds me of British style neighborhood. Even the ones that you'd see in Harry Potter and so on. Yeah so what? What do you think the messages though because I mean you can? I think this is a movie. That is an interesting theme to see an execution but the the trailer to me gives a lot of it away probably gives you know eighty percent of way and you want to see it for the punchline but I think it's making a statement that we can probably derive from the trailer. So what do I think? That's a good question and I. I think the message that it sending is that homeownership is not necessarily all that it is right right so life is more about experiences. Maybe travel now. I mean obviously you need a place to lay your head. I'm not saying like a Hobo and do van life or something. Hashtag van life but yeah. I think it's one of those things. Where like somehow the American dream if you WanNa talk about that got changed from pulling yourself up by your bootstraps and making something from nothing right. That was like in a way the American dream in somewhere whether it was Clinton or George Bush or something the American dream turned into like homeownership hundred percent Clinton. Yeah probably Clinton rate hundred percent. You're going to be you're going to have the American dream boom. Buy a house well. I don't know if that's so true. I mean you have other great places to live in. Now you see. People like live in tiny houses campers. And you know big houses and Garage Mahal. 's An and all these things but I think that's kind of the messages to say like don't be so eager to like sell your life just to get a house. What are your thoughts so I got that and it was definitely the first part of it. The simple answer. Yeah but I think the minute. They opened the box with the baby in it. And the only the only feedback you get from your captors is raise this baby and you will be freed you know. That's the only feedback. You're getting from the people that have trapped you in this Asher painting in an Ester drawing you know yeah I think it is more about like the myth of family and everything I mean. I think it goes much deeper. You're on the path when you're saying family you know they got. They were together in real life before this happened. But then homeownership is the rat race steppingstone in establishing your family. And then having children is the next stepping stone establishing your family and then getting the children out of your house and then finally you know that's when your empty nesters and you can finally go back to doing things that you want to do as a couple or what to do as a couple in love or something like that so yeah for your whole life as parents is is wrapped up in. What the kids need to have done you know. And I think it's it's that taken to the nth degree in this satire in this in this fiction. That's just lead in this loop where you can fall into a loop of like Oh this. The the routine of the process of being together you know. Get UP EAT. Go to work. Come home eat. Go to bed somewhere in there. You do like the few things. You enjoy blink. A few times. You're eighty yes. I mean I get what you're saying I mean and that's I think that's very true. It's like we're also quick to WANNA do things like L. I'll give you an analogy so in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. I rode my bicycle across the country. I started in Seattle Washington and road to Washington. Dc and I tell people about ride my bike across the country for like well almost past. What thirty years? Now I guess now. Twenty years twenty two years so some people respond with. Wow what an amazing adventure. That must have been fantastic while others respond flying would have been quitted right so it's like well you missed the point. It's not like I wanted to go to DC CE like Lincoln's memorial or the Lincoln Monument. Or whatever they call it like. If I just wanted to do that I would have flown there. The point was to take six weeks to ride my bike across the country. Yeah so I think. People are so eager for the end result that they forget. There's a journey getting there. Everybody wants the degree. Nobody wants to sit in class. Listening to a philosophy lecturer. They just want the piece of paper but they're missing out on so much of life's experiences while they're trying to just get the end result and I think that might be part of what they're getting at here is like man. Slow down a little bit and smell the roses. It's not about getting the House. The family and the baby about it next thing you know you retire and kids are out of the. House and go live in Florida. You know. I mean if that's the case well shit man. I'm as well like just go to the grave now because that's where we're all headed anyway as well enjoy the ride while I'm while I'm on my way. Yeah yeah no I. I totally agree. Yes and I just for some trailer craft here. I think the the quote editing needed to be a little tighter. There's a lot of copy read. There is a lot of copyright. Like it's like so much copied in a blast by you so fast and then and then the what is it. The rotten tomatoes had a score of eighty nine percent eighty nine percent. Yeah rotten tomatoes as of this date was like December of last year. That was like Oh do they expect it to go down and I looked it up today down to eighty three percent so I don't know that's hilarious. I didn't look it up. Some did well. And here's the funny thing though so we've covered like I don't know like a couple of hundred trailers minimum and we'll know we've probably covered about one hundred and eighty. Let's say first one ever had a rotten tomatoes score. I can say with certainty that I saw that I'm like man. They're like really hoping reaching that. Oh yeah look look. They actually do think we're OK and we're not quite ninety. Yes come on. I said to me last week. Press came and he goes Daddy. You know to see as I said yes he means you know. It's not as good as being. It's it's satisfactory and he goes. Yes the average so you know if you get to see your you know your average. Be as good as great he goes. No no see is like acceptable. Was like what? What did you see on that? You need all this explaining for her. And it's funny because he gets grades on his assignments but his classwork only gets like some pass fail kind of thing. Yeah well they do that a lot. Were like an education nowadays. And what the reason I think for that is they. WanNa make sure can every drop? That kids are practicing. We know I was looking to see if it was bottle conditioned and it looks to be really after all those barrels still bottle conditioned well bottle conditioned just means and let's back up for one second. Ted caught me looking down the barrel of the neck of the bottle and as if I was looking to make sure I got it all and I was looking to see if it was bottle conditioned just a quick aside bottle conditioning means that the beer goes into the bottle flat but they add some sugars and yeast continued to work on those sugars. They add to create the carbonation and also to like fix any any off. Flavors that may have occurred or to fix anything and it actually lay creates an even better more robust like flavor profile that otherwise aged flavor profile. So if you just like force carpet with co to throw it in a bottle like you know like you get say like a Budweiser something like a soda. Budweiser even like I mean. Like the one that you're drinking and stuff you know like they'll never improve right. What's in the can will always be what it is in the CAN. Were these actually improve over time if they're bottle conditioned so okay sorry time timing timing so yeah overall very. I think this is oh. I don't know like definitely in home. Viewing yes hundred percent however one hundred percent in home viewing you know in other words like yeah. I definitely want to watch this. I think it has a lot of meaningful management meaningful. It has a lot of good information that could lead towards like a cogent argument that says the lives were living. There's way more to it. You know like when you're done with the movie now go out and actually live life. Stop trying to acquire a bunch of junk you know and fill up your house and then like when that house gets filled sell it. Buy a bigger house and essentially like it's all about the rat race. I think you know. And so awesome guns Akimbo. Another one what's what the name guns Akimbo I. I don't know I like this day. I think this dame even though I don't understand it at one of my favorite names of Akimbo. Oh it's a good name. Isn't it like a famous Samurai Akimbo? Well you look up the Google and lots of gunplay though. Yeah working in the industry. Here's a question that I do have. There's like so much gunplay in this. Do you think somehow lobby groups like the NRA or something earth somehow funneling money like through some third channel into the produce the production company and everything to like get movies like this made you know in other words who stops a bad guy with a gun a good guy with a gun a good guy with with two guns bolted to his hands both hands. It just seems to me as though like it's just I don't know I mean these kinds of movies have just so much gun. Play that it's like right out of the NRA lobby book. Yeah I mean I think's so but I think because Oh you think they do fun. Some of these production. Oh no no no no. I'm Oh agree with the fact that you said that. There's a lot of gunplay in this the satire that that it is showcasing is actually more about the fact of what the social media culture has done to us as a society. Oh social I was thinking more video game. Well I think the convergence of those the two things okay. Because when you think of four-night yeah fortnight is a video game but it's but it's also multi user so it's a social media slash video game right and you could play in your phone. You can play on every device and being the same world with people right and you are in there with real people interacting in real time you know so I think that if you take it to the next level you can add this on as a game. Play in this real environment you know and you.

"Akimbo. Mighty Kyle reading set. This is Stephen out, Madison, Wisconsin. Hi, set Alicia from Charleston here. Hi. Caitlyn warm. Greetings from curious. How much Nick Ryan from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania? Pay sent this is Rex. Hi. Hi. Hi, this is Roberta Perry. My question is and that completes my question. I'd love to hear your questions about this episode or anything that came before to ask your question does visit a Kim Bo dot link. That's aka I m b o dot L I N K and click the appropriate button while you're there. Check out the show notes. Hi, my name is Landon I live in Greenville, South Carolina, and I worked for a publishing company. My question for you is what does a pivot away from the spectrum with limited space in more capitalist tendencies, look like for a mature company like mind that got its legs in that atmosphere thirty years ago. Thank you so much is a great place to start. Here's the deal. I you need to see. And it sounds like you were seeing that the world is changing second your organization needs to think about its mission. Who are you trying to change? What change do you seek to make? But the third one the practical question you are asking is what are your assets. What do you already own because if you have no assets, then you have no advantage over anyone else. Other than your ability to see and the fact that you have a change who seek. To make. But you do have asset and successful organizations often falter because when the world changes instead of saying, what do we already have they panic in the face of what they don't have. So in the case of a publishing company what we know is that paper isn't as important as it used to be that shelf space is less important than it used to be. But what's more important than it used to be are the authors who trust you the readers who trust you? So you can double down on your relationship with your authors, and you can figure out your relationship with your readers because most publishers have no actual connection to the people who buy their books. That's the first mistake Random House, Simon and Schuster. They should've started Google not Google because they're in the business of finding organizing and sharing information that is. As soon as Amazon and apple show up and say, we're going to intermediate between you and the reader every book publisher on the planet should have run away from that offer because the infinite shelf space of an Amazon is worth nothing compared to the valuable permission of knowing who is reading and why. So if you begin for example with newsletters digital, newsletters for your readers from your authors, you can get back into the business you set out to be to be the intermediary, the trusted curator the work. The plan is not that complicated. But it requires diligence a compass a willingness to say, yeah, the business we are in is defined books for our readers not readers for books. He said this is John from Austin, Texas and your episode supple gummy thinking along with your past comments on sunk costs. About what if you're starting out a little bit later in life. I'm turning thirty in. Let's say I want to kind of enact this thought of sunk costs, for instance, for me, I have a career as a count in the past that I don't identify with. I don't enjoy and I don't want to pursue it. It's not rewarding in a heavily more to offer them that. So if the world see if we are indeed supple enough to go when the world changes were the world kind of wants us to go like, let's say we want to pursue tech programming. How do we do that? While still picking a dip that allows us to be the best in the world because it almost seems like those conflict if we if we start a little bit late in we decide were supple enough to move when the world changes are we setting ourselves up for a situation where we actually can't be the best in the world. Either because others have too much of a head start. Maybe we're starting to late. So how do we navigate this one? We're making a decision to disregard sunk costs in do the best decision moving forward. That's in line with the way the world is changing. How can we how can we pick a dip? That's worth going through. If it doesn't seem like that dip exists. Thanks. This is a neat way to think about the problem. But I wanna challenge you about a couple of things first of all your hardly starting late that the world keeps changing and every time it changes, lots of people who are significantly older or who have more sunk costs than you do have to start over. But the real question is which dip will you choose to go through. And it's easy to imagine. That the dip in front of us is the biggest possible one that I want to become an. Academy Award winning actor that I want to be number one in market share. But that's not all you have to choose from that. In fact, what we get to do is simply be the best in the world for a few people for the smallest viable audience for a group of people who we can serve who care about us. And by being specific truly, hyper specific, we have a chance of getting through the debt saw us accounting as an example, you could be an accountant, you could be an accountant only for players of classical musical instruments who are in orchestras because they have very specific needs. And because they all know each other. If you become the best in the world at doing the books for the trumpet section of the New York Philharmonic. Then the trumpeters will probably tell the oh, whoa players. And maybe even the bassoon est though, they don't like the bassoon. That much the point is you don't need to get through the biggest dip in the world. You simply need to be the best for a few. Hi, my name's hippo. I'm in Amsterdam. I love Joe latest episode on baneful by the spectrum, and it brought up some thinking for me on the topic of you know, finding your smallest fiber audience. I recently participated in the free nights workshop on a combined. So this idea for kind of been with me for a while. My question is how do you? Well, maybe sped. It's say like what is the best way that you can figure out if the audience, you have selective actually viable is the only way you can figure this out by testing it and trying to for a while and family know succeeding, or is there a way to research income that's possible from the audience choice. I'm a designer. So for example, if I decide to do identity is on for musicians, and you could go more nation that but say, I started doing identity design musicians, and after few jobs, I realized that musicians have budgets, nor do they want to spend a lot of money on identity. Just line is the a message to figuring this out before you get into it. Hook that makes sense. Thanks invents. You know time. So there are two things going on here. And let's divide them up. One is can you reach the minimum viable audience. But the other one is what is it even what is the minimum viable audience. That is something you can simply assert as I mentioned in the accounting question. Maybe one hundred musicians each paying you two thousand or three thousand dollars a year for their accounting. That's enough. That's the minimum viable audience. You don't have to test anything you can simply assert after you've made the assertion. I you have to figure out. Does it? Meet the smell test. Is it possible to get two hundred classical musicians to change their accountant is given that you have twenty five thousand to choose from. Yeah. That sounds possible to me then you can go ahead and test your. Coach. But where we need to begin is by getting real not hiding, but getting real and digging in and saying, I actually don't need to delight that many people actually don't need to blow away that many people and instead of hiding behind mass and average and fitting in and pleasing everyone. Maybe I could get naked and stand out and do something for a few instead. Hey steph. My name's Ben. And I'm a freelance filmmaker here in Los Angeles. Just listen to your last episode supple wanted to get your thoughts how this supplies to my industry, actually, just finishing my senior year of college. And there's a lot of pressure to be a better filmmaker create better work better for talker. I'm wondering if maybe this isn't a winning strategy anymore. I've been doing this for about seven years and even in the last seven years, I've noticed a big change another market works. When I started when I was just twelve before high school. Remember looking out to people above me, there were higher prices being paid in demand for amazing image quality in to do that you needed to understand how the technology worked with the changes in even the last seven years the rise of Instagram digital of ours cameras that anybody can use which clearly been shift away from the freelancers in professionals, quote, unquote, into the hands of anyone who has the guts to make something I'm wondering, what does this mean seems like in today's era almost anyone can take good photos or make good videos is they're gonna keep being a shift towards better work for cheaper than anyone can make what's next. What's next is? What's always next? We redefine what better means being a better filmmaker in nineteen thirty meant. Don't ignite the film stock because it's really flammable being a better filmmaker in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight meant dealing with stars who were a little coked up and keeping them from having a tantrum being a better filmmaker in twenty fifteen might mean understanding how CGI works and figuring out how to spend a hundred million dollars on a blockbuster without making a truly lousy movie. Better keeps changing when I started in the book business being better at laying out a book meant that you knew how to work with a typesetting house, or maybe it meant that you were the first to use frame or ready, set go, and that you could hand Kern, the widows and the orphans so that there wouldn't be bad page breaks. None of that is worth paying extra for now. None of it. What we pay. Extra for is always the next version of better. The next version of better when it involves film has nothing to do with. Can you focus better than other people can focus because the camera can focus for you better. Does not mean do you have a red because this guy only has the Sony better? In the world of AI is coming to me. Are you more human can you solve interesting problems? And most of all do you have the guts to lead to lead into images that haven't been seen before into projects that haven't been conceived before are you able to do the emotional labor of dancing with the fear? That is where every industry is going in a hurry that it doesn't matter. If you're a trained radiologists to computer doesn't care it can read the x Ray better in quotation marks. Then. You can. So whenever it feels like we're facing a commodity market. We must begin by asking. What does better mean? Thanks for this question for all of them this week super juicy. We'll see next time.

"Supple- is undeniably a cool word. It's onomatopoeia. It sounds like it is. It's something we all aspire to nobody says I wish I was more brittle. Hey itself. And this is a kimbro. We'll be back in a second. But first, here's a message from our sponsor. This episode of akimbo is brought to you by link ten and Lincoln. We know that being a marketer today as challenging for a lot of reasons like having to reach customers, and the rare moment when they're thinking about business, and when they're ready to engage that's tough, but Lincoln can help make it easier for you to reach the right people when it matters. That's because as people come to Lincoln to do business. We share your marketing campaign with just the people who are interested in doing business with you. And that sounds pretty helpful. Join us later on for three different ways Lincoln can help you or go to Lincoln dot com slash akimbo. To learn more. What will you do when the world changes because the world is going to change? This is certain the world has been changing for as long as there have been species on the planet, and if you work in an organization, or if you work in our culture trying to get picked trying to pick others trying to make change happen. The one thing that is certain is that the world will change, and it will change faster than you expect. So supple resilience is a choice. It is an outlook. It is a way we can plan our day our week our month and our career. So let's start with the example of Lucille ball using the human sounding boat, but mechanical son is just wonder of sun. But human voice isn't used under the mechanical sounds unaffected from the leading as the site lips. Listen to Lucille ball. From country by rail. And at every crossing, this is the way the train whistle sounded to me nineteen thirty nine Lucille ball made a video a movie as an actress talking about a new kind of technology. She went on to be a star on Broadway. And then, of course, on television as technology's changed. So did she where she stood how she worked as she matured in her career? She became the first woman to run a studio in Hollywood if it weren't for Lucille ball, there'd be no Star Trek. A final frontier. And there'd be no mission impossible. What Lucille ball didn't do was insist that the world stay the way it was in nineteen thirty nine. What Lucille ball didn't do was digging? Hold on and insist that the way she was doing things was the way they had to be this. Of course, is how the French got completely clocked by the Germans because if you built fortifications in the ground that you can't move you have built a brittle defence sports teams make this choice all the time. Are they going to staff and hire for one particular way of being for one competitive strategy because while that may work in the short run when the opposition changes their plans and their approach you are stuck or consider financial investments, if we invest all of our money in a certain way with a certain thesis and the world changes. Then are brittle strategy is going to make us unhappy. So I want to tell you about seven elements that are involved in making our choice. Our difficult choice about choosing to be resilient and supple in the face of change these affect freelancers entrepreneurs CEO's people building organizations folks trying to make a living and building a career. The first one is scale what we know is that the bigger you get the more dependencies, you have the more difficult. It is to change what you do to McDonald's, for example with all of those franchises with all of those stores is operating at a completely different scale than a mom and pop store down the street. So if the neighborhoods shifts to vegan, if the neighborhood shifts to people who are more mindful and careful about what they're eating MC. Donalds to just live with it. They can't change quickly and well in the face of that because they would have to change in tens of thousands of locations. Big Donald is not succeed because they are supple resilient. They succeed because they have made a significant bet on how culture and the food chain work and as long as they are, right. They will do great. And as soon as it changes, they will struggle. So the scale that we choose influences. How supple we're going to be in the face of change. I'm not saying that big is always wrong. It's not that the only way to make public company returns is to be a big public company. But we also know that if you enter a marketplace that's chaotic where you fully expect change to happen over investing in scale will strain your resources as soon. As the world changes. Number two, a simple rule about money, and it's related to scale. And the rule is don't run out. It is much easier to be supple when your scale is appropriate to the amount of cash you have on hand when you don't have the ability to go through a dry period when you're going from a to b it's stressful, and you will not be able to invest properly when the world changes. So what we know is that long lived organizations in that happy careers tend to be ones that live within their means that have enough of a reserve that when the world changes they can get the new resources they need to dance with the new world order. The third one is making the choice to talk about it that often what we do when face. Based with the changing world is we've become even more brittle because we believe deep down that if we don't talk about it. It will go away. And so we see the giant technology corporations to western unions or the AT and T that relentlessly refused to aggressively talk about the changes in their industry in the case of Western Union. They never recovered in the case of AT and T. It was only because they got broken up that they were able to dig in deep and figure out how the new world would interact with the scale that they had already built same thing happened at Microsoft. It was only when Bill Gates wrote his famous memo to everyone in the company about the internet that the company started to pay attention to the shift that was happening. He was probably two years too late talking about it that if Microsoft had talked about it with themselves. Selves two years earlier if they hit engaged more directly with the technologists on the outside. The future would have been totally different for that company. It's super easy to decry. What your competitor does? When he or she is trying to change the world. Steve Jobs goes to MacWorld and he pulls out this. I phone was your first reaction when you saw that. Five hundred dollars phone subsidized the plan. I said that is the most expensive phone in the world, and it doesn't appeal to business customers because it doesn't have a keyboard, which makes it not a very Email machine. So when Steve bomber famously said that the iphone was going to be a failure. He was being arrogant because he was refusing to talk about it talking about the pressures in the shifts is the only way that we can evolve our thinking and discover the new places we ought to be going. The fourth idea is mindfulness in any given moment as the world is changing we have to make choice. Do we wish to will it to be different than it is to insist loudly that it is not fair that we have to push hard against it. Or can we see it name it accept it and dance with it? It's. Raining outside. It doesn't matter that you weren't planning for it to be raining outside. It doesn't matter that raining outside. Makes it unlikely that you will hit your goals for next week. It's still gonna rain outside. So being mindful of that aware of that acknowledging that the world is changing is totally different than denying. So the most expensive mistake I ever made in terms of dollars. The year was nineteen ninety three. I was running yoyo Dyne, which was one of

Those were some of the ingredients in Tony's pizzeria style all natural frozen pizza. In New York City by some measures the home of pizza in the United States. There are more than two thousand pizza places and in the United States more than seventy six thousand places to buy a fresh made hot pizza, and almost all of it is terrible. And consider for a moment. Sushi a food with a supply chain that could not be more different than that of pizza of food made in many places by hunting, a nearly extinct wild animal, and then combining it with a warm substance rice, and perhaps putting it in a refrigerator. Most sushi places are terrible. How is it that the two foods that can please any gathering of people the two foods that people will go back for at a buffet? If they're great are often, so terrible. Well, let's begin with this and axiom. A true rule. The pizza you grew up with is the pizza you love. And there are some studies that have been done about this about lots of things having to do with food turns out that kids who grew up in India eating spicy Indian food like spicy Indian food, the food you grow up with is the food you love people twenty people come to buffalo may say there's a couple of things they have to have that reminds him above long cheese pizza is one of them. They get off the plane. They say they got a common people say it's somebody will say, it's the sweet saw some people say, it's the oppor- pepperoni. Everybody has their you know, their their taste buds. What they remember what they like about it. And it's a different style. It's neopolitan. It's not your thin crust New York City south beats or it's not your real thick Sicilian style pizza. It's like inbetween. And I think I think generally people remember it growing up, and that's who they they have a love for pizza. Well, here's the thing. What's of people in the United States grew up in the suburbs? And their parents perhaps holding their nose, perhaps simply harried and too busy. Brought in mediocre pizza. They took their kids to Shakey's or the pizza or they bought a frozen pizza and served it to their kids because it's simple because it's easy. And it becomes the pizza. You grew up with of course, a big exception here for botchy pizza in Buffalo, New York, the pizza I grew up with because of course. The PTO grew up with his PTO love and don't start criticizing by cheap pizza. But leaving aside the sweet sauce. Here's what we know. Most pizza is mediocre. And the reason it's mediocre is because it's the pizza you grew up with it's something we may never recover from. But consider Dom DeMarco. We got a lot of people that come in the city. The KOMO go the year above dispensary. Let's funny because this is this much better one of the medical day, whatever use comfortable, I don't know why they don't make a right.

"You're switching from your one in one hundred. Shot must create this scenario where you have a ninety nine in one hundred chance of being right because the only way you could be wrong in switching is if you were right in the first place. Thank you nNcholas. So I know this doesn't sit well still with a lot of people who are good at throwing basketball free throws because we don't experience this kind of probability choice in real life. Or at least. We don't realize we do. But the fact is it's there we just don't build a game around it. We don't train kids when they're five or seven or nine to play these sorts of games to understand in our bones. How probability works what Infinity is where we stand when the amount of information and data in front of us shifts. This is one reason why it's so difficult to ignore sunk costs because we're really. Bad at getting past the emotions and seeing the actual costs and the actual probability. So my suggestion here is not that you go. Learn the formulas of basin probabilities, but that instead we spend a little bit of time going back and forth with each other trying to navigate the odds of a Royal flush trying to figure out what it means when we see some cards get played, and we don't know which other cars are left in the deck. Thanks for listening. Odds are we'll see you next time. In a minute. We'll be back with your questions from last time. But first, here's a message from our sponsor. Hey, welcome back. Next time. You're thinking about running a marketing campaign consider how linked and might help you to give you some ideas. We'll share three different ways you can reach the right people on Lincoln. So they can start engaging with your business today. Way to start is by sending messages, these make it easy to target the right people for everything from product promotions to personalized invites for events.

Greetings from cure sow besa monuments, Nick Ryan from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Pay sent this is Rex. Hi. Hi, this is Roberta Perry. My question is. And that completes my question. We love getting your questions. We got a few good ones this week. You can visit a Kim Bo dot link. That's aka I m b o dot L I N K and ask your question about this episode or anything in the past. We're going to get to two good ones this week. But first a recap from fifty episodes ago, the thing that comes up over and over when I talk to people which is the difference between a freelancer and an entrepreneur this week akimbo is launching two workshops, a brand new one for freelancers and a repeat of a classic approving one for bootstrap IRS. You can find out about both of them at akimbo dot com, aka I m b o dot COM. So what's the difference? Why launch to workshops on the same day because I want you to choose freelancers get paid. When they work using our own fingers, our own skills, we do the work. So when I am making a podcast. It's me when I am writing. It's me when I'm giving a speech. It's me we get paid when we work. And that's the only time we get paid entrepreneurs on the other hand build something bigger than themselves. They build assets if you are an entrepreneur, and you are busy hiring the most easily available best qualified and cheapest person to do every job means, you're hiring yourself. And if you're hiring yourself to do all the jobs, there's one job you're not doing. And that's the job of the CEO of the person who figures out how to build something bigger than yourself. So the hard work of being an entrepreneur is hiring someone to do every single job that can be done by someone who's not you. It's a totally different way to be in the world. So if you're interested in this dichotomy, I hope you'll check out the little video we posted at Kimball dot com

"Talking Barbie was a great gimmick. A little computer chip made the classic doll able to talk. And so they had her talk about her friends, maybe even about school. But then the folks Mattel made a big mistake. They created a talking Barbie that perpetuated. A stereotype one that ran deep will people. Hey it Seth and this is a kimbro. In a second. We'll start riffing a little bit about Barbie. But first, here's a message from our spine. This episode of akimbo is brought to you by Langston and Lincoln. We know that being a marketer today as challenging for a lot of reasons like having to reach customers, and the rare moment when they're thinking about business, and when they're ready to engage that's tough, but Lincoln can help make it easier for you to reach the right people when it matters. That's because as people come to Lincoln to do business. We share your marketing campaign with just the people who are interested in doing business with you. And that sounds pretty helpful. Join us later on for three different ways linked and can help you or go to Lincoln dot com slash akimbo. To learn more. Unser? Math class might be hard. But math math, isn't what we think. It is one reason that math class feels hard is because math is in what they teach in math class. It may be that you think you are. No good at math. But you are probably mistaken. You might mean that you are no good at arithmetic because arithmetic is boring, and you know, how to do arithmetic with a computer. It might be that you're not good at memorizing formulas that make no sense to you. And that's probably a good idea because of all the things to be good at memorizing formulas. They make no sense to you is not one of them school was built to create people who could do well on tests. And so quote, math, unquote educators. Also in quotes decided that the easiest way to have people do well on the tests. Was to teach them arithmetic at have them memorize equations that they didn't understand. But this is not a podcast about math class. It's a podcast about math because you're good at math. All of us are good at math. We do math every day. If you are the NBA champion for the season, you are doing extraordinarily complex math without even realizing it because of course, the force of gravity is exerted against the ball. And you have to toss the ball at the right velocity in the right direction. So that gravity counteracts the energy and force you put into the ball. So that the ball goes in an arc and lands in exactly the right place and goes to the basket that is math as Plato. Understood math is the real thing. We can be fooled by our eyes or our ears that our senses. Never tell us exactly how the world is. But math math is pure and math is real. And we are good at it. And so when Leo who is two and a half years old holds a bunch of grapes in his hand. He knows he has five grapes. Not three grapes or eight grapes five he knows that not because someone taught him the formula for counting. But he knows that. Because math is true. So we make these decisions these trade offs, these choices, and we spend a whole lot of time with proper ability. Oh, I'm so excited. I don't know what to say to you ever then Arnold, except that did you like that deal that I just made for myself. Well, I'm gonna let you have the same same deal for the pledge burst. And whatever you got inside there that of course, was Monty hall, and if you're over thirty you know, that Monty hall was the greatest game show host of his generation. Let's make a deal was built on a simple, but endlessly complicated conceit, which is that people in crazy costumes who are jumping up and down would be given something and the chance to trade it for something else. Or you could have that curtain that pretty Carol Merrill is on you to right now way over yonder, and those trades those endless series of trades involved. Math straight up math the probability of figuring out. If what you had was worth more or less than what you wanted to trade it for which brings us to our point the famous and not very well. Understood Monty hall problem. I'm going to take a couple of minutes to describe it to you. Because even people who think they understand the Monty hall problem might be glossing over just how disturbing it is. And how important it is to each of us as we make decisions in a complicated. World to understand how we can be led astray. So the way let's make a deal work is simple. Monte gives you a choice and often involves three curtains. Curtain number one curtain number two and number three behind one curtain is a really juicy price and behind the other two curtains might be what was called zonked which could be an actual literal goat. And if you read the fine print of the rules, you didn't even get to keep the goat. They just got to humiliate you with the goat. And so here we go behind one of the three curtains is three million dollars behind one of the curtains is a goat and behind the other curtain is a goat. So there you go. What are the odds while most of us without even taking a probability class understand that the odds are one in three that the expected value of this game? If you played enough times is a million bucks. One in three that if Monte says to you, here's a thousand dollars. Do you want to trade in the thousand dollars for a chance to pick one of the? The three curtains you should probably take that bet 'cause the bets worth a million dollars a one in three chance to win three million dollars. Okay. So you take the money and you picked curtain number two. And now Monty shows you that behind one of the other two curtains there is a goat. So there we go. Now, there's only two curtains left the curtain you picked which in this case is curtain to and the curtain. Monte did not show you behind which let's say is Kurt number three. Here's the question. He asks you do you wanna switch do you want to switch from curtain to which is the one that you picked in the first place to curtain three. Now. A lot of people will say the odds are the same. It doesn't matter whether you switch or not and some people say, no. It's a little bit better to switch while the fact is this it's twice as good to switch. Your odds aren't fifty percent. If you switch your or sixty six percent, if you switch stick you got a one in three chance still of winning. Switch

"Gravity isn't simply a good idea. It's law. Hey, it's F, and this is a kimbro. We'll be back in the second. After this word from our sponsor. This episode of akimbo is brought to you by link ten and Lincoln. We know that being a marketer today as challenging for a lot of reasons like having to reach customers, and the rare moment when they're thinking about business, and when they're ready to engage that's tough, but Lincoln can help make it easier for you to reach the right people when it matters. That's because as people come to linked into do business. We share your marketing campaign with just the people who are interested in doing business with you. That sounds pretty helpful. Join us later on for three different ways Lincoln can help you or go to Lincoln dot com slash akimbo. To learn more. Before we talk about the most important law of our lifetime. It's worth taking a second to distinguish between a law and theory in popular culture, a laws bigger better more powerful than theory. But in fact, the opposite is true. All a law is is a statement of how things happen. A how the world is a theory is our explanation as to why it's happening and theories get better over time because people come up with better more, accurate, explanations of what we're seeing theories can be tested laws are simple statements of how the world is. Douglas Engelbert was one of the most important pioneers of the computer world, as we know it today in nineteen sixty eight he gave a demo and for people who are paying attention. It was the very first time they saw the mouse and networks and hypertext all at once one guy inventing our future, but about ten years before that Douglas wrote a paper, and in that paper, he speculated about the fact that computers, we're going to get smaller, faster and cheaper. This is in nineteen Fifty-nine a lifetime ago well about five or six years later, Gordon Moore who worked in the semiconductor industry was asked to write a paper a short paper predicting the future of computers, and in it, he posited a theory at his theory was. Was that based on innovation and progress that was getting made in certain kinds of production. Computers would get faster and cheaper. In fact, every two years the same amount of money would buy you twice as much in terms of computing power. What is colleagues at Intel were hinted at working David house turned into Moore's law, and what he said was that eighteen months every eighteen months? Computers, double in power and speed and officiency that simple law, which is generally true and has been true for my entire life is responsible for the world we live in. Now. If Moore's law applied to your house, you would be able to buy a house as nice as the one you live in for thirty dollars. Because unlike almost. Everything else in our world computers, keep getting faster and better and cheaper. It's worth understanding why? Because just as you can with effort fight, gravity. You can with effort build the life that goes against the magic of Moore's law, but understand that you're gonna have to work at it and work at it. And it's going to get harder and harder. When I was growing up. I read a book by David Brin called the practice effect. And my memory of it goes like this imagine a world in which things got better the more. You used them that if you picked up a stick and started using it as a crutch that everyday over time instead of getting weaker or more scuffed, it would get more and more like the best possible crutch that entropy worked in reverse that practice made things better. And so in the novel, he theorized that people who didn't have a lot of resources would work for rich people using their stuff. So that when you got home your knife would be extra sharpen your frying pan would be extra nonstick and everything about the world. You lived in. We keep getting better because if you left it aside or put on a shelf and didn't use it then it would start to decay. Well, that's a law. That's not true in our lives. But Moore's law. Has been true. So here's some theories about how it will continue because it keeps broadening it's not just that the CPU in your computer gets faster and cheaper. In fact, so many things that computers are touching are affected by the factors that keep making it better. So let me highlight three of them. The first one is the idea of the experience curve years ago LED watches with their little lights on the front showing you in numbers. What time it was cost between one thousand and five thousand dollars. They were clearly a novelty Texas Instruments decided after doing some analysis that they would break open the market. And so what they did was they priced. They're watch at a price below what it costs them to make. They lost money on every. One because it was so much cheaper than the other LED watches on the market their volume went up and as their volume win their production capability better and as their production capability got better. He got cheaper and cheaper to make a watch. And at that point, even though their watches were thousand dollars less than the competition. They were now making a profit because the experience curve says that the more we make something the better we get at making it. And this is particularly true with anything that involves data that once you build a database or silicon chip or the stencil for memory chip, the next one you make his cheaper still then once you build the fab and figure out how to make it officiant each one

"Question one, which came first the chicken or the egg question to why did the chicken cross the road in this special two part episode of akimbo, I'll be answering both questions the answers are more clear than you thought. Hey, it's F, and this is a kimbro. Okay. Which came first the chicken or the egg. We'll get to that in a second. But first, here's a message from our presenting sponsor. Hi, I'm Aaron, and I'm shallan, and our small business is brass smoothies here at brass smoothies. We make whole foods Moody's free of refined sugar. We started our business two years ago to fulfill a need in the city that we didn't see was being filled. What we love about being small business owners is really watching other thing that we created grow and succeed and be well received were driven to make a more sustainable experience. So that we can have a small business for a long time. A challenge that are small business faces everyday is reducing our waste and plastic output. Stay tuned to hear the rest of our story and see what has made a difference for us in our small business before we can talk about chickens Hague's, we need to talk a little bit. It about how we all got here. It begins with this creatures have sex all creatures all the ones we can see anyway, reproduce. And that leads to lots of little creatures usually way more creatures than will actually grow up, those babies, those babies, they look a lot like their parents. But not exactly like their parents simply a lot like them. So what it means is that traits are inherited. He never know anything at all about genetics to know this just by looking at puppies or kittens or little baby calves. So these babies some of them have traits that are lucky enough to fit in with the world around them and help them survive long enough. So they can have babies passing on those traits and generation after generation. That's what happens. Creatures have babies who look like them? But not exactly and those traits. The traits that work get passed on to grandchildren and great, grandchildren. Over time the creatures start looking a little different. They start adapting apparently to the environment. Now the wording here matters because they're not actually adopting. What's happening is the ones who are left are the ones who fit in. So this actually can happen right before our eyes certainly over lifetime. But maybe over a week or two consider the famous example of moths in Britain. There are lots of Mods in Britain. And most of them were shade of white when two white MAs have little baby. Mas those MAs range from bright white to a little bit gray will this work. Great for millennia until they started using coal to power things in the United Kingdom that Cole. Of course, put soot all over everything and the cliffs went from white to dark, grey and overtime. What would happen is moths that were born white got eaten by the birds that he'd moths, but the ones that were sort of on the grey end of the spectrum. They were the last ones to get eaten 'cause they were a little harder for the birds to find those MAs would have little baby. Mas and the little baby. Mas ended up a little bit closer to gray on the spectrum. And over generations. What happened was the common? Moth went from white to gray it evolved over time. A few hundred years ago. The broccoli family of Italy spent decades breeding carefully artificially selecting plants from the Brassica family until they ended up with a vegetable are unique vegetable that they could sell in the market. That's where we got broccoli. And that's where cubby broccoli got enough money to buy the rights to make JAMES BOND movies. We can do the same thing with fruit flies, take fruit flies in a jar. But just a little bit of pesticide in there and the quote weak ones will tie, but the ones who are more resistant to pesticide will actually have more access to food, and they will end up having more kids, those kids, the ones who survive will be even more resistant to pesticide not because they were exposed to pesticide. But because the ones who died died because of pesticide overtime generation after generation the genes get passed down and the species evolves. One other thing that's worth noting here as a species evolves. It's still possible for the variations within the species to reproduce with each other. So it might not be pretty, but a Doberman and a dachshund can

"Three times. Most companies are lucky to do at once. Their first time they did it of course, was when they started sending DVD's in the mail that was a breakthrough. The second time they did it is when they intentionally walked away from DVD's and aggressively shifted to streaming. And the third time they did it quite recently was in saying, you know what, instead of paying Hollywood for every movie, they send down the pike the way blockbuster used to. We're gonna make our own stuff because we have the hardest part distribution. We have the hardest part, the attention entrusted, the viewer, we don't need don't theaters. We got something better than theaters and not only do we have yours. We've got cash. So we have cash and we have you is, what do we need the studios for has. So Netflix is taking this usually, and the leap is spending more money each. And every year to create more original content which makes it super difficult for the studios to resell. They're mediocre movies the way they used to be able to do it to blockbuster on a regular basis. Thanks as always for your questions.

"We wanna hire, show me your commits. Show me the work you've done whole south answered several questions recently and talked about the. Attention. I know you talk about the tension in the marketing seminar to, and I think for most of us were not aware of the tension that you're talking about, and then once we do become aware of it, I think it's such a fine tune skill that you really understand in recognize the would be helpful for all of us. If we could get a deeper understanding of tension the way that you see it and how you apply it. Thanks, thanks, Wendy. You're right. I do bring up the tension and I probably have teased apart as well as I should. Let me take a minute or two here to try to do that. We got taught for twelve or sixteen years at school that our job was to get an a. that if we are defective, we fail, we are reprocessed sent back a grade and had to do it again. This idea that we better be right that we better be perfect. We'd better get all correct, goes deep within us and the industrial. I wanted that to happen because it makes us a better factory worker and makes us better at following specific instructions. And when something comes along that might not work, we feel the tension the tension of experiencing two things at the same time. This might work that it'd be great. This might not work. I'm going to be doomed the tension exists when we feel both of those at the same time. And if you're not feeling both of those at the same time, then you're probably not doing your best work. You're probably not having your most honest relationships, you're probably not inventing the future. You're simply a victim of the future. So this tension isn't something to avoid. It's something to seek out because that's what it is to be a professional today to go to that place where we feel as Steve press 'field calls it the. Resistance. The resistance thing about the tension in a rubber band, pulling us away from the place where we might be able to make a difference. And I think it's possible to learn that when that tension shows up, we should lean toward it, not away from it. It's possible to learn. That's actually our job that has a professional will mere writing or speaking or typing or engaging or inventing the tension that place where we feel it that is what we're getting paid to do. That's when our chance shows up for us to do our best work. Thanks for listening. We will see you next week visit akimbo dot link to share a question. Hello, akimbo listeners it.
