Big, big trump country country, and they switch the votes around today, and he picked up 13,000 votes. Apparently multiple other counties in Michigan have the same same system that produced this glitch that turned Trump votes in the Biden votes, and now it's being reported online. I don't know if it's true or not, but they're saying multiple states. Have been using the same system that converts trump votes and the Biden votes. What a coincidence.

That drive was always a lot easier. While Bobby answer was taking part in his third Indianapolis 500 with granite Telly in 1965.

Foyt By that time when I walked in, I thought I was through because it was Sunday. Unite, ma'am. You know when, when you missed that rage, your rookie year I always felt and I still do. That the car owners will have anything to do with you because you didn't have the talent to make the race. So when porn walked in the garage because I have a second car if you'd like to come out and try it, and, you know we'll get to try to get a qualified it. Think about it and come over to my Grubbs.

When I came in, and 65 asked me to run a second car, George pick Noddy went bananas, I guess. Because he didn't want to have a roofie and you know in the other car. Even though I own the team, I get whatever I never did understand all of it, But George did not want me in the car. And then after the race, then you know he he then seemed to get along with me.

Brothers began to show the rest of the field. They were there to stay. Al finished second to his former teammate A. J. Foyt at the Brickyard while Bobby wound up ninth and later in 1967. Bobby swept a doubleheader at the Telegram trophy races at Moss Port Park in Canada. Bobby answer had his first IndyCar winds outside of Pikes Peak.

How much did you love it? That's Alan. Siri's You guys last kingdom. I would maybe even watch it again. Yeah. Oh, it's it's a Netflix. It was that was a delicious treat for me. Yeah, he is amazing Butts. Okay, so back to you so many things when you just drag out something I don't want to. And and I have loved how to get away with murder. I've been a fan for this. I came in and out. I just really because Violet Davis is everything in that show and that show Gave Viola Davis the money. And the status to be able to start her own production companies say yes or no to what she wanted to do. I mean, that really made her a household name, even though she's one to Tony's Thie, Emmy and Oscar Golden Globe, a BAFTA and like literally 90 other awards. But it's the how to get away with murder playing Annalise Keating. Yes, And so I have one more episode and everyone is said that this finale is just unbelievable that you if you were someone who watched how to get away with murder that this episode ties up everything is just a case of this last episode, so Last week. I think was last week I get my new Vanity fair. And it's the July August issue that by now, then I guess it's called the the dog Days of summer. The jog a CE issue on my Laura and Violet Davis is on the cover Holly postive for US and He just great, great photo, but a couple things that people are, you know, just saying about this Vanity Fair story. Is that the guy who took the photo? Yeah. Of all of the violence. Davis photos is that he's the first ever black photographer to shoot the vanity Fair cover. And boy I know red. He could Jones, who's a black woman. She's been the editor in chief of the magazine for, Like, At least you probably you know, like Annie Liebowitz was the chosen one for a long time. You kind of have a relationship. Maybe. And you just used a carrot. Yeah, but itjust anyway. Anyway, she She really is a great actor. Denzel Washington spoke in the piece he because they get fences together. They did. Frances That's exactly right. And He now that she's done with how to get away with murder. She and her husband have this production company. I feel like, you know, she's just zero in front of the twin cities because members celebrity property brothers highlighted her friend from acting school or Juilliard Roommate. Yeah, she's till she's We've seen her so many times. Sorry when she and her husband, Julian, and when he speaks, you listen and she saw articulate and eloquent and lovely. Absolutely lovely, she Ah, but she did talk to Vandy fear about her movie role in the help, she said she was trying to get into the film industry. Should she, of course, played. Abilene Clark, a maid working for socially wait family in the 19 sixties and activity made played the other maid who was very mistreated by the family she worked for, and Anyway. Davis was nominated for best actress and Spencer went on to win the best supporting and But anyway, neither viol or Octavia Spencer there there In hindsight, looking back on the movie, they're not really Ah. That they feel like that movie very much catered to a white audience, so she spoke out about that again, she said. There's a part of me that feels like you betrayed myself and my people because I was in a movie that I wasn't ready to tell the whole truth. But she did. Say she loved making the movie. He loved her co stars. Still, Jessica Castine, everybody's still Emma Stone and a dozen January I'll still really good friends, and she just said there weren't there aren't enough opportunities for black actor says Yeah, and telling stories that perspective in mind exactly. Anyway, Viola has you will change that with her production company, and because she can That money. She got money that TV money. Allowed her to be able to do that. So I'm caring. I'm excited about that looks very fabulous on the cover, and the inside photos were really amazing. And then And we have Oliver Stone giving interview. And he is not a fan of the current state of Hollywood, which I just say 90% of Hollywood has shut down. So who would be 1/4 eye like he thinks that hey criticizes Hollywood for turning into an Alice in Wonderland Tea Party. I just Rose. This is New York Times And so he just said Modern movie making is just ridiculous. Everything has become too fragile to sensitive Hollywood. Now you can't make a film without a covert advisor. Well, and I were in the middle of a pandemic. You can't make a film without a sensitivity counselor. Well, if you're going to be having sex on the set, you know you've got some things going on there. It's ridiculous. Academy changes its mind every 5 10 2 months what they're just trying to keep up with. I think he has a memoir out, and that's why he's doing this interview with Eric. I think its he's got a memoir out. It's probably we're getting it taken somewhat out of context. But I know when change happens in an industry that you've been in forever, you're busy. I'll never forget. When women started practicing law, my dad was ready to have a fit. I mean, I'm just saying when change big changes happen when it seems like so Dar women are going to become lawyers. My dad's like I'll let a gate letter get out. Never forget. I mean, my God loves women, but he was just they just lata gate. Everything and so change for people is always hard. It's stone is just like that funny these holly He's 73 73. So his old Hollywood he used to do whatever you wanted. Well, yeah, so I would I have to like is see this all in context of what they're talking about. Like I don't know that.

"Welcome to this bonus episode to the rest of us. I'm your host rob walling several weeks ago along with producers Andor on the Microsoft team we started doing a livestream called Microsoft on air and I. It was every day and we transitioned to get twice a week and had some really good conversations with founders with copywriters like Leonid Patch came on and did live copy audits that were super valuable for the microcosm. F- audience the Microsoft community and last week at a really interesting conversation with Portland. Allan the founder of India hackers and we shape the conversation. Around what Cortlandt Allen has learned interviewing one hundred and fifty five startup founders but we also talked about what he's learned building a community from scratch and it was such a good conversation that I wanted to throw it here in this podcast feed because as I listen to it I was inspired and I felt like I took things away from it. And felt like it would make a great short startups in the rest of US episodes. So here it is hope you enjoy it. Cortlandt Alan Sir. Nice to see you. Thanks for joining me on micro-finance today thanks for having me rods. I see you as well absolutely so. I have my standard interest. I'M GONNA run through and then we're going to dig in to a pretty cool topic with Portland. Who has a lot of experience working with with developers India Hackers? Who ARE BUILDING THEIR COMPANIES? So welcome to today's episode. Microphone era as always. I'm your host ROB walling Portland. Alan and I as I said are going to dig through his experience building indie hackers. He's he's done something pretty unique that most people don't do which is to build a community site almost virtually from scratch which is a very hard thing to do and he's kept it up for years and they were acquired by stripes over years ago and he's interviewed one hundred and fifty hundred and sixty startup founders on his podcast. India hackers acres podcast. Many of you listen to and I know that when you talk to that many founders you start seeing patterns and that's the kind of stuff we're GONNA dig into. Today's just some lessons. He's learned thought processes you know. Po- A positive patterns anti patterns and that kind of stuff if you are not already in Microsoft connect which is Microsoft's slack Channel Online Community. We almost thousand founders and inspiring founders in there. That's where folks are. GonNa be able to ask questions of Portland and myself today. So head to Microsoft connect DOT COM and apply. If you'd like to be part of future conversations of course you can always just watch this livestream on Microsoft on Air Dot com as a reminder micro on air. Podcast is live as of a couple of weeks ago. So if you want to hear any of these episodes if you miss any of them in a synchronous Lee not have to log into youtube and watch video which is not something I do. My generation doesn't tend to do a lot of that. I personally have subscribed to my podcast and I`Ma kind of listening back to figure out what we can do to improve it. I think there's always room for improvement as always thanks to base camp and Stripe. There are headline partners and we do a lot of this with their help. So thank you so much so Portland Allen founder of India hackers. Are you. Hold up there in San Francisco. Everything going well I am. I haven't seen anybody that I know in the last month except for my local grocers who I guess I'm on a first name basis with but that's pretty much it hold up playing video games playing poker. Do a lot of work honestly. Haven't fun with it. Yeah yeah that's cool. I've been seeing you. Put out some articles and video interviews. You've been doing a lot Pretty pretty topical stuff. I think you were mentioning that the car. Your content is moving more towards maybe news or current events. Type stuff that right. Yeah that's exactly right. I think it's something I've always avoided in the past because it's a little bit harder. There's just a short turnaround time if you're doing things that are current basically have to plan for episodes record them and get them out the door extremely quickly evergreen become less relevant over time but there is some other advantages that. I think makes them sort of the news? Approach very attractive and also I think just with the way the global conversations going on you know had a really great episode lined up for the index. Podcast was sort of a debate between Natalie. Nagel while bid and Dha Trim base camp on work life balance. And I was so excited to release this thing and then a month past and I think the release date was supposed to be last week and email both of them and I was like I. Just don't feel right even tweeting about this just seems so off topic. So I think there's been a shift and it's harder to sort of do business as usual when everybody's talking about the facts of worldwide pandemic and. There's a huge global recession coming. Yeah the conversation has certainly changed. We've been you know we've Almo I would say it's unintentional but when we moved into the news stuff you know. We did a big lives. We about Kobe. Nineteen what really? Sba loan the paycheck protection program. And that was really the first time we had done something like that. You know and done something. That was super topical. We threw together in like two days but turned out really well. We had three hundred fifty four people on the livestream and again forty hours notice. It was pretty good and it's received Watches since then. So it's a trip. Their conversation is ever changing so I wanted prior to this unit emailed a little bit and I was. I was saying you know. This is the topic I love to cover. You have any bullet-point thoughts on things that you have learned whether it was going to. Hackers are from interviewing other founders. And you sent me this create outline. I figured you'd like six bullet points but it was like really well thought out things. Did you have that put together in advance? Is that a book outline. You have or is that agony mail is I missed your email about the stimulus thing and I felt really bad about it and so when I saw your email about the list I was like I need to put some effort into this miss females as I just started typing and it was very stream-of-consciousness which I think runs the risk that there might be a lot of reasons. He buys here. This might not be the one hundred and fifty five interviews might be the things that everyone from the last twenty interviews that have been on my mind lay right but the things I feel pretty strongly about and they might change their all opinions. They're all beliefs that wouldn't see any of them are vaccinated stone. Probably any time that you've asked me what I've learned from the people I've talked to and the things that I've done I would have given you completely different answers. So this is Portland April Twenty Twenty version of what I've learned from India. Hackers awesome one. One of the things he said. Is that the advice to start a BBC news rather than a BBC company is a bit like telling people to eat green vegetables and not eat a bunch of carbs. They'll probably be healthier if they listen but the advice itself misses the underlying principle of why an idea is actually good or bad talk through that a little bit because I when I. I'm not sure I'm not sure I understand the connection like when I say don't eat vegetables when I told my kids eat vegetables not carves the reason that vegetables because they don't taste good whereas French fries but is that what you're saying is like companies are really fun they taste good and that's fun to start whereas bbb or not or what. What's your father? Yeah I mean it's it's a lot of things number one. They are fun to start. A lot of. People want to start businesses. Even when I started Andy. Hackers one of my checklist. I wanted to start a business that I could tell my friends and family about that. They could use it. They will be excited about. It'd be interesting to them just because as consumers we mostly interact with BC. Businesses are of course of our lives like we very rarely see what's going on behind the scenes at businesses. And so I think they're very attractive to start but they have some unique challenges which is kind of why we end up giving the advice to go to be because it kind of goes against. What people's sort of intuitive sort of I guess almost automatic desire is when they first become founders. I think the advice is a little bit course. I think at an ex girlfriend who talked about the color diet and was literally eat foods that are these colors sort of shorthand and there really was a directive and they don't eat white foods eat green foods and I think if you do that like okay. Great you'll probably get a lot of vegetables. You probably won't eat a lot of carbs but it's just really course advice. It doesn't really get down to the nitty gritty of someone. Let's say who's looking at their macaroni. Bows and counting. Carbs and counting protein grams of protein and counting fat etc. Who's actually looking at sort of like the first principles and the underlying reasons why certain foods are bad or good and if you just sort of all the higher higher level advice you might still mess up right. You might just eat nothing but green jolly ranchers all the time. And then wonder why you know. You're not healthy so I think it's obviously more lucrative than BTC on average and then did an analysis a year ago and our product directory we have like thousands of peoples product. The revenue numbers. The ones that were to be we're making on average four times more revenue than the ones that would be to see but I do think there are some extremely lucrative businesses. You just have to be careful and follow the underlying principles that lead to people paying basically for something of value. Businesses make money generally more than consumers and they have a higher cap on how much money can make their also more concerned therefore with saving money that I think consumers are because it's just more money to be saved and so it's easier to pick a valuable problem that businesses care about and so generally speaking like B. Two B. is not a bad way to go but I think if you're actually looking at those principles you can ask okay. Well how do consumers make money? What a consumers care a lot about. What is the problem that if I have consumers are not going to get fickle and leave that they're not gonNA only be willing to pay me five dollars a month for it? Sarah look at those underlying principles. There's lots of areas for example. Probably the consumers see themselves making the most money is through their job and people imagine all sorts of avenues for how they can get a raise at their job or get a job in a better industry and usually that comes in the form of education and yeah maybe people only want to pay five or ten bucks a month for your to do list APP and maybe turn because it's not that important but people are willing to pay forty or fifty thousand dollars a year for the right education which is crazy about and so I think the same principles apply if you actually understand why businesses are consumer spend money. And you're like you know a little bit disciplined and making sure that your business focuses on solving valuable problems for people solving problems at high reach problems that people are unlikely to turn from because they're important then consumers can be just as lucrative of target market as any business. Nice love it. Thanks for that explanation for folks in Microcosm connection and microcomponent air channel..

"A special episode of Pit Lane. KARLA WE'RE GONNA call this First Episode D. We lost track sedition. We're going to start with my home track in Netzer speedway and I enjoined by one of the guys from these. Save Nazareth's Group here with Tim Sullivan. Tim Thanks for joining me tonight. Thanks for having me. I really appreciate you reaching out to be from You know so for those who may not be familiar with is located near me about an hour and fifteen minutes north and Tim Tickets through Steve Founding in the real old school of What was then called Nazareth national speedway all right right So I'm not sure how many people actually no There was actually a horse. Track closer in the the middle of town back in the eighteen fifties Sounds like your old style you know. Of course I think it was like a mile milers half-mile but it was around. Like nine thousand. Nine hundred are so they moved out of town to where the site a where the track is right. Now in the bill a half mile track and that's currently like where the giant in in all those stores are a a on one ninety one and two forty eight so they didn't actually start Auto races until about nineteen ten so in those were like those like motor Polo. I don't know if you've seen some of those screen shots or they were the old like tractors. I guess if you will and it was like water polo or like a horse like the that we're used to seeing in booth polo stick and you're driving around in a car. You're smack balls around. I didn't last very long but the note that was. Actually yes. It's funny. I'm just reading my notes here wikipedia calls at Auto Polo Ended it actually drew a crowd of at the time which I guess is pretty big in ten thousand eleven thousand people which is pretty substantial for kind of a rural area in northeastern Pennsylvania. Yeah so gone. A bit further down The I like large raise was hosted after after world. War Two BY TRIPLE A. IF I'm not sure like a lot of younger people are of course saying younger. I'm not that old either either but a lot of folks that don't know about AAA and other things that they used to do like that back then and then and for a large race was about thirty cars or so in a crammed in with eleven thousand people or so. That was a pretty big that back then So a second track was built in nineteen sixty six. So that was the larger one mile BURTT was actually one one eighths the odd length. But you'll probably know that there was actually two dirt tracks there Jose oval at and. Then there's a smaller half mile. Sounds Bill Sixty six. which is the current ration- in early Exact location of that track So like during the during the a A one thousand nine hundred sixties. That's when the bigger track hosted like you sack events and whatnot and it was actually. I think it was in in sixty six. That Ellen Serbia Mario so like the big big time hero you know was beaten out out by someone. That's not from the area so I'm sure that was a for for a fun thing to watch. Yes it's funny Everybody a associated with the track with the ANDROID. Obviously since they will now pretty much all lives down the street or nearby but Alan Sir is actually the guy who on the first USAK race. They're big names like Alan like like a Was David rudiments. Dad buzzy rude. Yeah Yeah like you had this old school names that like l. a.. People think about it because they just go. Oh it's Nazar has got to be ready right We had the large oval Closed down around nineteen seventy-one but the smaller tracks stayed open. That hosted your weekly dirt nights stuff like your like your modifies in your life. Your legends sort of stops that went on on while that track was closed in it wasn't until nineteen eighty two where the were both tracks were purchased by a local businessman. Blendi Cardi already. A lot of people know that name but that was like a local up. PA Guy That he has attract promoter and whatnot so he he bought both tracks but sadly with running both tracks that gets quite expensive so in eighty seven a it was a seven that does purchased by Penske and then the large over was paved over was actually slightly shortened and and then paved over in the small oval was sold. Elaine Co which for those people that don't know about lane cotswold grocery store. Chain for as millennials. You may or may not be old enough to know about that but like after that was paved you handler like the the Nascar Busch series in the trucks will and modifies. They had carte Obviously so then I'll ran pretty much up until it closed in two thousand four and then you know the track was Paul also as Penske was getting out of the track game which they own which he own Michigan and auto club and so it's like Houston only get out of that and he was starting to sell those off so he actually sold at two. I C which is your your international speedway corporation bloomer. Hatim that's up up the US oppose so as like the big expansion was happy with Nascar. You have these. Bigger corporations is biology tracks. And what they would do they would go. Well there's a market somewhere else so as opposed to having somebody else owning compete. We'll just by encloses says he had to happen to tracks over across the US so they actually moved. The Nasdaq dates Watkins Glen. And I'm sure there's some people that may not know but those stands on the front stretch or actually the stands that I used to sit in when it was here. So so it's Kinda like kinda frustrating when you go Glenn like those stands don't belong here kind of like the general rundown of of like what transpired so you know there's a big tracks like Indianapolis that you know that's been open since nineteen fourteen or whatever. Yes there's always binny's track here will whether it was in town or smaller drove lord larger one lights lights There's always been something there as kind of you know. It's kind of sad to see when I was born in ninety one. So that's that's where my dad took me. I lived up the street so I could hear it like I was not even like a mile away as cart was there. I'd go outside like Michael's well here. Michael all excited and you know but we don't have that anymore sadly so yeah I'm sure people on the show of heard me say a abundance times. They used to run around the grandstands while my dad was still working for car but it was such a cool facility Some of my notes that I'm going to share with with everybody here attract when it was paved was actually advertised as a one point. One two five mile track again. Just like the track I'm sorry a one mile paved track but the actual measurement was a l. less than a mile so teams figured out how to really get good field strategy there and once it was officially measured it was actually point nine miles so and not really young not quite a mile although it's essentially the same thing and the I. R. L. In the last rests on two three years of the track Used a measurement of point. Nine three five for timing and scoring although NASCAR car kept it as you know one mile until two thousand four and I do always laugh. I don't particularly As everybody knows pay close attention to NASCAR but when you see Watkins Glen you see the standard really familiar. Remember before I first time they were up there. The grants were there. I feel a little sad. Dad was the first place. I saw any sort of racing in one of the first tracks in the northeastern area. Another track ET AL cover in the coming weeks is Trenton speedway which is also very unique. Very very unique he can vary early. Nineteen hundreds tracks of another one. That's kind of a forgotten area By both the open wheel and NASCAR standards in today's world. But obviously we have richmond coming back next year which is great Let's look at some of the winners here as pretty cool Danny soul than actually one in Iraq race. Here as you mentioned Al Unser won the first USAK racier. Mario Andretti won the second USAK. Zachary's here something no was the old Marlboro challenge us to run run. Their back was delay eighties. I think it was like the Big Lake is basically the all star race but cart. Yeah it was Those were those refund races to watch which If you can find them online they're they're definitely good Let me ask. Let me ask you a question here. I'm GonNa this is typically something I do to my co host but let mrs you can Guess here the only person to win the race here in back to back years would be. What driver would be nineteen eighty nine and nineteen ninety man? Dan I don't I don't WanNa say now for some reason I was GONNA say Little Al but that's that's not right you'd be incorrect on.

generally go into tribes when we're afraid I mean it is it's human nature and so when we're afraid of something we go into tribes and the deeper we go into the tribe the the more we don't listen anymore and then we lose all sense of proportion and and any sense of nuance right right well you know tribalism is inherently humans so whether we're in danger not would you like to be around you know sort of sort of our group you know people who is your doctor baller Alan Sir about when we are in danger we are more likely to be people who think like to behave like us and to sort of denigrate people who we're afraid of or who don't agree with us so tell me what happened to you in twenty sixteen while you're an undergrad at Yale yeah you're going I've been concerned about Campbell culture for a long time and know the actually the military before it and yell for undergrad and you know I've heard stories about you know extra sensitive college student and no flakes and so on and I thought a lot of it was probably just the media maybe blowing things out of proportion but then literally within my first two months they yelled that is with the fall semester two thousand fifteen faculty member named Erica Chris stockage wrote an email around Halloween telling students that they should communicate with each other more they're offended by the costumes that the you know other students choose to wear rather than relying on the university administration to give up guidelines of what costumes were allowed to wear or not and the student reaction to her was just pure outrage they targeted her they turned her into a pariah on campus for essentially defending freedom of expression and eventually he had to resign I'm in basically said that the climate on campus was not conducive to free speech coaching stepped down from her passion that the university and so okay cool I thought that was weird I thought okay so you know maybe this is just a quirk of American universities and that this is just unique to schools in the United States but then I wrote a ride to the university of Cambridge here in England last year and literally within a few first you mind center is probably the most famous academic in the world gets disinvited from the university because a bunch of students and faculty protesters that that you know him in being here would make them feel scared or on paper something and so you know there there is this problem in academia but then in culture more broadly out people getting canceled or you know things that they say can I ask you this rob what you know what the thing that happened at Yale here's here's a woman who's saying look talk to each other have personal responsibility that take this upon yourself to understand don't go to don't go to the man nobody expects the the college to do this this is the exact opposite kind of thinking from the sixties or any kind of of real movement with the youth they are they are holding up these it is the government and the administration in that case and saying yeah we we should have them do everything for us where does that come from yeah you know it's funny you say that if I'm not mistaken I think in an interview Erica Chris doctors but professor got enough to step down to yell Chesley kind of referred to herself as this kind of stick you liberal you know this person who sort of March with the students and believed in the whole freedom of speech because so it's sort of ironic that she's getting targeted now or simply defending freedom of expression and I think a lot of people from that generation now are sort of you will their dad at what's happening because oftentimes they're the ones being target now find it don't you find it the additionally strange that in an era where your voice can be heard you have the power to be heard and to be seen anywhere around the world that you have the power to start your own business unlike any other time in the world and you can become famous unlike any other time of the world that that generation is going back to like a nineteen fifties kind of structure well I think what's happening here glad is that the ideology and power are afraid of free speech so you know in in the fifties and the sixties there were there was a sort of perhaps more conservative ideology that held power in university even if this ID and the group that consider themselves the underdog maybe the sort of progress is that the time we're fighting for freedom of speech we're at today those students who protected back then now have the power and they're afraid of sort of uprising the Obama people who are challenging that and so I'm not entirely sure that freedom of speech itself is you know this bedrock principle but it's only you that the court of that as a weapon against the opposing ideologies right so then what happens Robert what we what what what is our future hold and how do we get our arms around this because if you point out in your article you know wait intell it's you you could be next you point out the article that's not enough that's theoretical to too many people even though we're seeing it happen in real time right now it's still not enough right I don't think that those words you know you could be knack which IP a lot on social media and in conversations about cancel culture I don't think it actually registers for most people because the social rewards so you know getting into a mob in trying to cancel someone in those rewards are true mediating gratifying and the dangers of cancel culture are pretty remote an abstract I mean it just is going to a sort of you know you rest for a lot of people so Kipling wrote in his poem the gods of the copybook headings that all these things will happen until terror and slaughter returned in what he was talking about was you're just going to go off the deep end but it will take terror and slaughter to return to common sense and we've seen this time and time again are we at that point to where the only thing that's going to stop this is just I mean people didn't understand in the nineteen twenties Hey you could be next but by nineteen thirty nine pretty much everybody was clear you know even those in Germany pretty clear all wow I could be next are we at that point to where that's the only thing that's going to stop this stuff is the world going into total madness you know I'm I'm a little bit more optimistic than that I don't think that we're sort of you know physically in danger but I do think there's a lot of refutation all danger at stake here you know people are necessarily fearing for their personal physical safety despite what what what on earth like total Justin's activists warriors will try to tell you you know it's not physical thank you our reputation Allstate do you know anyone of our reputation could be destroyed in the blink of an eye for something that that we might have said you know ten years ago you know you see a lot of people digging up old tweak their old a proposed by you you might have written in like two thousand nine so I think it's more the reputational destruction that's the real risk here but I think that as we continue to talk more about this and bringing their V. do you know the issue to light that people will slowly come to their senses but in the meantime I don't really see counsel culture going away I think that it's going to get quite a bit worse before we start to get better rob thank you so much and really appreciate you speaking out and and and risking your own reputation I'm sure you had pushed back have you not yeah yeah I mean I've had a had a few great here and there but I just brush them off yeah good for you rob thank you so much rob Henderson you can find him at rob K.

Needs to do is stay consistent he really does need a top five today because you have to that Alexander Rossi much like he, was at the at the Indianapolis five hundred. And some of these other ovals he's. Absolutely on fire in these races you know he's going to be aggressive and Scott Dixon. Certainly can't rest on his laurels so he needs to work. As we, continuously through, the field but I I think again much like we saw with him earlier this this weekend or qualifying rather He's just going, to have a measured approach. He's not going to, be desperate for anything and I think that's that's the most the most sort of dangerous part about Scott Dixon as he never takes any any more, risk than he absolutely has to. An end but I still think, that there's a lot to play for here in with willpower just new garden they have to. Be super aggressive to get their way back, in the championship battle so I think we're gonna, say some great battles up bottom line is this. Scott Dixon Alexander Rossi will power Joseph do Gardner whomever you, went races the points take care of themselves don't they. They absolutely do I mean look at Alexander Rossi forty six points. Behind Scott Dixon it's not too far fetched the way to think that if he wins another racer to that economy within ten fifteen, points Scott Dixon so nothing is concluded at. All and then we come into snowman. What double points weekend anything can happen there as well fascinating close to the championship in. Terms of the venue here a short track like gateway Portland.

And part of that was probably down to that Chevy aero kit but I think now. It's going to be a clean slate and just a question, of do they still have that, big advantage? With their dampers.
