"I still haven't met. I'm sure that there will be exceptions. But in most cases, it's not really worth to spend all that money on something that the moment you unplug it. That's it. With the content, you have something that lasts forever with the outreach. You have relationship and circle of people that you want to target with the ads after they finish that's it. So I'm not really a fan of ads by as you can see from this conversation. Yeah. I can see that if pediatric work based when it comes to high ticket service provider providers for the bottom of the fund of the building leader, like for the cheaper services, is outridge for most expensive ones. Is it the best, if it's used that way? Well, Aldrich requires a lot of effort. So when we work with marketing agencies or software companies, we're like, well, what's your most expensive solution? Because it is the same effort to reach out to a prospect, engaging the conversation, nurture them, qualify them and bring them on a call, whether the product is $500 or $200,000. Okay, there is a bit more work on the more expensive. But at the end of the day, if we're doing all these legwork and research and business intelligence and figuring out could reach out and what kind of pain points they have and creating messages and profile optimization, why don't we invest into the biggest fish in the pond. So why don't we actually focus on the more expensive services rather than offering services that are 200 dollars, which can be actually covered by ads..

"Could make that experience Because if i may in contrast if you had to go online to you know there's a number of online flower shops you are loaded with so many different choices and you know luke knife my man and know exactly what they want and so. It becomes a pariah analysis paralysis and so on. Yeah i mean again us guys. We don't know what the hell makes a good bouquet. What the flower stanford or so many meaning if you have the one wrong flour get in trouble for that right but the each floor each color. There's so many different meanings and how even package things nicely. We tried wrapping around flowers and will probably never do that again. Because so we worked with some really good that out and we thought we could solve that through technology and actually we could but You know so. The the concept of bloom brothers was that you would go onto the site. You enter who the recipient is. Is that your girlfriend. Your mom your dad. Your brother your aunt or a friend or coworker your bus. Whatever data and what is it Is it your anniversary or What's it called or valentine's day or a simple. I love your just because happy birthday. Whatever and we we had an algorithm that would kind of change or order craft the perfect bouquet for you and then you can have that delivered when you want and where you want and it would even remind you say hey bro your anniversary coming up you wanna okay you wanna buy you want adam. Some add on some chocolates to go with that So there was actually there is a market for dudes gus who suck at this thing and it was really interesting. Because valentine's day we did a lawn we worked with another company full of full of dudes who really fit the profile of that. And yeah it was. It went really well We sold like few hundred bouquets. and just Yeah it was really interesting as a fun time. Got it but whatever what happened to that startup in how did that evolve into next week. Also you might ask yourself. How does flowers evolve into something to do with fintech voice our clients so well the answer is there is no connection at all. I really kind of go back up to the vessel ignite right right bloomberg one and there were actually a few other things. One of the things was We were looking into. How do we help people save money. How do we help people from financial wellness standpoint outta and so the number. Actually kind of backtrack here by saying that. You know when when i moved to canada in two thousand and six i had moved there early enough to actually witness and experience. The transition of town of being a cash to a cashless economy. Where in the beginning. We would use a lot of cash but over time we had cards. We can now tap to pay in restaurants and so i was able to see how that has really impacted people and businesses directly and so thinking about that. I've always thought you know what in the philippines were really cash dominated. Sure this g cash at the time smart money but it's really nothing compared to what i'm seeing here in canada and so in my mind i've always thought about getting into that business and barring a lot of the concepts that i've seen in both town of the states and implementing it in the philippines so does in the back of my mind and so while we weren't doing that directly we were at least doing something related to financial wellness. So now coming back to. I guess vessel wanted to say something Yeah i guess You know so. We were building or like we were doing brothers and building that it was. It was something to kind of test at the landscape in test the technological capabilities of what was available at the at the time. We were also looking into this financial wellness thing that don is is about to dive into but We just learned so much from that experience. you know it it could definitely become a full blown business in itself but we were really more intent on on something within the round the fintech And we learned so much from building a small business in how actually difficult it is even manage your own. Small business unit. The philippines right absolutely. It'll yeah it was definitely like. I would say like i. It's it's a project that That we wanted to pursue but ultimately we didn't again because we just saw so much more funding and potentially next pay but Yeah it was huge interesting learning. Okay what was that inflection point. He said i'd drop everything else. Next fee it is and what what what what were their struggles. Because i know this is not easy because i remember per time. I met you guys that i can recall. Was that kubo session that we did a few shows. Life left like last year. Doing kubo stuff so it was like what was that like when you said all right you re our next phase it is more. What was the dirt. Yeah parts like. I'll speak again from the transition point of bloomberg's to the next day So it was. It was difficult to be honest because again. We didn't know shit about flowers. And that whole industry. It's the world on its own and there are so many ideas brewing but there's so many tech limitations are capabilities and ultimately because we were also kind of like poking around on different projects We ultimately said all right. We're gonna can this This project I i think we could. We could probably chop up a as a failure in itself in like. It's it's a thing that that had some validation bud we didn't really want to pursue it that much further And so that's kind of the turning point also pragmatically so maybe done you wanna jump in on on that. Yeah so. I think one of the things we all smooth recognized was flower business school but again leading. You know pulling from what i mentioned earlier. It wasn't necessarily something we are passionate about. You know Because the impact was kind of limited but another another more break matic way of looking at it was what was the maximum ceiling of how many people we can impact and what was worth putting all our energy and effort because we knew that splitting up our efforts was not going to be Good for either company and we have to pick eventually and so we decided to instead drop bloomberg and focus instead on this little fintech idea that we are currently working on and it wasn't even the same type of business model that we currently have today the next day or something wildly different and you could say we kind of went on an evolutionary.

If they're already like a mom and pop exactly and then from there you can use that money to pay your employees your suppliers and bills and We do a really good job there. Especially because we can disburse in batches. Do any bank and any e wallet in the country. Which is something that your typical corporate payroll account in a bank. Can't even do. That's true and again this. This is a totally particular problem that needs to be solved again. We've had so many people. Here that talked about the philippines and then it's unbagged population of people that again cannot be served by traditional back. That's why you know neo back.

City like yeah to be honest. it great But i was actually born and raised here in philippians so went to school here Did like grade school in school here in the philippines. Well it's just in the earlier parts of my childhood. I grew up as well in vancouver area. So you know I guess to be honest. It was nice it it. It really kind of opens your eyes to more culture. I was makes you a little bit more worldly in that sense. 'cause i get experienced so much and vancouver as the city is so diverse with so many different cultures right so you you get like a little buffet of culture. They're gonna most asian country outside of asia. I heard See but i just digging a little bit on that so you grew up here right so have a good perspective. That's what i typically see with with people that have been That have lived overseas. Grew up rep here but what were your in early influences lake because again it's either your influence early by people who had inclination toward business. Have to figure that out on your own. Was that Well okay so. I guess i'm also chinese by blood so there you go I'm chinese so you got business but you know. Yeah that on yourself.

"Other founders are also going through the same blooms you get that support system. plus why c has amazing mentors lake. These are some of the smartest people in the planet. Probably you know they're they're giving out cutting out some of their time They're giving you the time of day for you to ask them for for some advice and just tell you. Hey you're being an idiot founder. Right now don't do that shit or in. Here's what you could do. I think that guidance that mentorship was absolutely valuable for us. And obviously the overall network in and the tools that we've learned like i remember when we joined the vic- slack Just looking through the database. There's just so many cool startups from ac that are offering like Tools a premium experiences. Four other icy rate. So that's another huge value. Add like me. It was just stepping into another dimension of like okay. There's all these other hundreds or thousands of tools that we could use to our advantage in. That was also really really amazing. Now if there were says filipinas startup now again. The the current batch. I think there's one matt eat so congratulations. I'm not sure if who made it but we'll we'll find out you'll definitely get we'll keep you updated out all right. See that's good to see. There's a trend now that that's coming in but if they're they're in what what would be your tips for filipinos started founders who who practical To get in to have a better chance at getting into icy. I could start getting gopher Being canadian by the way So ohno you marino. Sorry for being sorry. No look it's really one of the things that they look for is if the founders that they're interviewing are passionate or no the market in I imagine they also see like okay. Is this guy this these founders or if your sole funder whatever. Does this team have the needed in the drive. Needed to really really make shit happen. If plan doesn't go according to you know how they wanted it to. What are they going to do about it right. And how are they going to be resourceful about it And obviously are these people coach right so i think going into licey or any other accelerator program you have to have this. Sort of mindset of Just being open to unlearn everything that you know in be challenge there. You may know you may have x. Amount of experience in your field but You know something new just completely undo everything you thought you knew answers to go into these programs being completely open minded about it and be prepared to be told that you're wrong or you're being an idiot and you have to change. Don't get attached your idea. We've seen some wisey companies completely pivot during the program or just like just like shutdown right just like this were out or maybe they be lights or maybe they realize like their. Id is just not going to work. And so they buy out right so kind to add to that when you apply for wiessee. There's a special filled in the application form that asks. Do you have any other ideas that you were thinking of doing. But didn't end up pursuing now they specifically asked that because sometimes they might find where the original idea. One of the ideas was better than the thing that you actually applied for. And so it's very it's i wouldn't say it's common but it's definitely a thing where people may end up entering whiter but leaving with a very different product or idea of business all right now last question about why see. How do you ace those two interviews that you thought you butchered We'll what are you saying those ten minutes to do you get those. I don't know we thought we lost. What's your okay. So i think i you know This side of the world is looking to be an exotic place for investors Philo the us market is very saturated and so a lot of investors are now optimistic and bullish about places like india. Indonesia's really taken off and so on and so there we have that going for us. The thing don't have going for us is that they don't know the problems that we deal with one of our challenges in our interviews. We have to explain to them. The idea where you can't do a bp bp bdo back transfers if your to do batch disbursements right that's simple. Things just doesn't compute for them so having to explain that and then talk about how we're solving was kind of the challenge. But i think what really matters. A lot would be showing that the problem worth solving. We have the team that can actually solve it whether it be soft and hard skills so we can actually build product ourselves and not have to outsource it and that the ceiling for whatever the business were doing is high because you might have a really great team read a great idea but of the ceiling is really just a one million dollar company. That's not really worth their time. So i would say that those are things that we would like to consider all right now. Let's talk about that. one point. Eight million dollars. Check the geologist race again. Why c opened the floodgates. How did you. What was that process like and at the end of day fundraising again is a fulltime job. Scale the product while your friend raising. Well that's all the time we have for tonight so now we're from our sponsors okay. I think we split up the time the work so for a while. I was figuratively speaking living in West coast usa timezone while rich. Stay here in the philippines specific. I was still physically feared and the philippines. You're exactly i was raising money. I was the one talking to investors and they were in that time zone whereas aldridge was focused on keeping the lights on. You know making sure that the business from product to sales was still functioning so it was really really tough. That was one of the most stressful times of my life. Honesty and. I don't really get stressed often so i think this is kind of like a big deal. It was something we was really challenging. But i think we we did a good job there right but what what. What were the questions at the getting from investors from that side and there's this thing called in asian discount. I don't know if you've ever heard of that right. Valuation same letter product right. But because you're an asian company you're worthless in that that's that's just even late exits in this region hover around twenty two fifty mill. That's nothing in the us right what what what. What's the what were the questions like. And how fast was the deal flow late because typically here takes a while and it's a mexican standoff too so when you say mexican stand-off a to be like yeah. Who is the viper. I i wanna see who by then will follow suit for pretty. Us what was that. So my opinion is that the asian discount is not so much a function of racial discrimination or anything like that but it's more of a function of what's a pragmatic maximum economical scale ability. That company may have in this region and it just so happens that the gdp per capita in the philippines is much smaller than some than in the states or any other countries. So i think it's appropriately in that sense so now the challenge is. How do we actually showed that. Despite that maybe we have a huge market that we have access to which i think we did a really good job in because of the underserve market..

"Journeys. Become what we currently are today. Okay so what what was what was the first isolation was the first. Mvp and Was it a difficult time. Because you took an l. and any l. right That's cost time money and you know everything else in between then. Okay well i. I think we should say that our first foray into this was we wanted to. We came up with a north star. You could say that. Which is what is drive us in terms of everything. We do and for us financial wellness for every filipino. We wanted to help people out in that sense and then so we initially ventured into the business model of robo advisory so quickly explain what that is today. Typically if you want to invest you would speak to financial adviser the ask you questions. They'd know your risk profile and then they'd essentially suggest to invest him or the insurance. That's what they often and they're not even for the most part financial advisers exactly right so they sent but now what rob advisory allows you to do is to go through a website go through the whole process without ever speaking to a person and at the end of that process you can invest now. We found many problems in that space. Nick i guess for example in the philippines. It's not really gonna work because for it to work. You'll need to have a really healthy stock market environment but in the philippines not only our mutual funds very expensive compared to other places not only are at the twenty one. Etf but also a lot of trading philippines is based on insider information riot. So it's very very difficult to really excel without having to that to dive into that space and the more important thing for us was when we realized we when we realized that when it comes to financial wellness investing should be the last thing that people think. So there's actually a process that we believe people should go through the first stage before you get into investing is to have good cash management. That means span doesn't you make Have an emergency fund and only after that you look into okay how'd loan so that's debt management in only after then do you go into risk management. So that's taking out an insurance making sure that you're protected you and your family and then after only after that you look into the last one which wealth management Which is investing the problem. Is that many. People are sold investment products when they're broke or in their in so much debt or they're just not financially ready to even think about investing and so we found that the philippines in general unfortunately has a lot. You know there's a lot of things people need to do before to even think of investing and so we decided to jump to the very beginning. Which is the cash management aspect. And that's where we evolved into the first nation or the i built was to same day pay and then a passenger aldridge. Maybe you can take over here so With with the same day pay rate We throw all our research. So far in the industry overall consumer behavior we found that the filipinos just in general or filipinos people. In general honestly Just suck at saving their money. That's exactly betcha. Deputy grow that. That's the thing that i think. One of the the ideas in. It's actually the reason why behind our name on at i. Was you know people lacked access to their their salaries sooner than later in again because of betcha deputy grow and they just suck at saving their finances. They end up scrimping on before payday. They don't eat meals The can't even make it the work because they don't have any more money to commute or any anything like that so we were thinking okay. Well what if we actually made their wages the the the the we just that they worked for on that day accessible or a portion of it at least and this is actually a model that we see in the us and canada. And you know if you're up. In actually i guess more developed countries on because people are really helping a lot of people there make ends meet and it's also Helping on the business side of things as well because if basically the are that if your employees are no longer have to worry so much about their finances day to day. They're a lot more motivated. There are a lot of you know. They're a lot more focused at work. Some less likely to seek greener pastures or. Find other jobs elsewhere. Exactly so attrition. Rates are lowered Attention goes up retention goes up. People are more focused. They're more happy. Morales up for for employers a the spend less on training in recruiting and because it takes a while for people to get a customs that our job and then only for them to leave at the end of the probation period or even before that for a job that pays slightly more. That's that's that's a problem but that's not the root of it right so we wanted to kind of address that while but But upon guessed further study and just really doing a ton of interviews with employees. From all walks of life. We found that honestly like the next. The same day salary is is is very very useful. That's for sure. But it's not the root Root of the problem and the root of the problem is behavioral dope dod. So if you have that and you said you had multiple iod rations over to pivots lake. And what did you. What made you pivot so i think the pivot the pivots had a lot to do. Just understand so what we've been talking about where a result of understanding the problems that we are trying to solve and the people who had those problems and then realizing that the initial proposals we had where it was not adequate for solving that problem so as aldridge said the same day pay. We thought that was gonna help but turns out. It was a band aid solution and it is. The problem is really behavioral. What that means is that people just generally people know how to save that they have to save money that they have to invest that they have to get insurance but yet during payday loans have discipline exactly prior to Restaurants reported forty seven percent increase in sales during payday. Many people complain about being broke but a lot of them end up getting like the latest phones. So i wanna say though that there are people who are really stuck in a very difficult situation that problem definitely. That's a hard problems assaults but a lot of people more than we realized are capable of attaining financial wellness if we were to tackle it from a behavioral standpoint so because of that we designed a solution where we can help people automatically save money whenever they get paid before the money even gets to them so automated savings so that the act of making the conscious decision to save is removed. because that's very painful and many people don't like that it feels painful to save and so by automating that we can make do without it and help people out and then we were testing that out in the beginning of twenty pandemic and when the pandemic hits the business we testing the solution out whether rather we were testing this out with employees of businesses got ended up honing. in.

"Rick we are still held rich and dawn again. New nile told us you know how how they built in their career back in the six. Oh for north of the border. Always but now i wanna understand what what led you back because this i always have admirations for repatriates because a lot of filipinos that go abroad experience brain-drain and then philipino their filipino wisdom. Or whatever you call that only happens whenever money blackout despite being whenever gillespie whenever are napping singing in lollapalooza. They lose that sense of home. I understand why he came back. Because like you roland roland ross's royal the windows of the world. These are people. Were doing a good life state cider in the west then decided to come back. I wanna understand why you guys went back. And what did you guys do. Sure i'll rich. You wanna. I can take it okay. So it in two thousand sixteen already. Tonight were fortunate to have been able to head back to the philippines for a vacation time. aldridge was based in seattle working for a retail startup. Today called remotely. Or i don't know they're started anymore at this point in time and i took a sabbatical from my current workplace in vancouver called open. Dns so when we met up in the philippines. I'd like to give a shoutout to one of our good friends. Paolo ren tarot a baller and tarot of tech shake and night and he essentially took both origin and myself under his wing and showed us around the startup community. got introduced us to a lot of the different things that were happening. Interestingly in philippines and I think that made us realize a couple of things namely that in at least for me. I was working for an internet security startup company and i was working with some really really smart cutting edge people but ultimately the problem that was being solved to me was a first world problem internet security but then having seen the real problems in the philippines from health education finance politics. This made me go. Kay i've worked in developed some very interesting set of skills that i'd like to put use into something more meaningful and impactful unfortunately as you sadlier a lot of filipinos are leaving the country and that whole brain drain is going on so all rich myself. we were like okay. What can we do to change that. How can we give back philippines. How can we do something. That is really more meaningful. And how can we reverse brain drain into brain gain right and so i'll pass it orage. Maybe can talk about. Start up manila and everything else after that yeah sure So like don said You know we were essentially solving real problems. I wouldn't say remit league's doing that Because it's mid international remittances But you know it's a lot of W sending money back home to their families and making it more accessible easy which i really aligned to a really you know bought into that mission and i guess For both for both myself and done we just really wanted to be more impactful with with our skills in our initiatives and whatever we could bring right So when after taking a back here back. Home i think The dimension start manila Again we saw the potential. We saw how many startups coming up around that time. And obviously there's way more now than ever we also saw a lot of entries Entry points of foreign entities coming into the philippines. We thought like. Hey how easy or difficult is it. It really to start your own company here in the philippines and so we thought that we could kind of make a service for people like us coming back into the philippines to just get started with office space hiring all illegal shit that people gotta deal with And we had we were kind of envisioning a very startup culture where there's a lot of co working co living a grand vision in that sense because we really wanted to kind of help foster that startup culture here so that was one of the things that we had planned in me. We had quite a few ideas that we really wanted to. You know to to float in try building. And i think we were both again very fortunate enough to a massive a little bit of savings from work so we said let's just give it a few years it see what we can do it kind of Trying figure it out from there. Worst case like if we failed miserably. And don't do anything. I guess we could. You know go backwards. Get jobs here in philippines. Go back to north america. And god i can get savings again to build in the war. The first thing you came up with yeah so eventually a Although helping us and introducing us to some really awesome people in the area we started to come up with a bunch of random ideas and eventually again. I'm giving just a very tld are kind of We formed the little innovation consultancy own called called vessel with a few other go founders. And the idea here was two to one Create a few start-up ideas and test it out. We had a process for coming up with the brand and doing customer development and finding certain problems that we could we could address through technology and then the other one was also to help other companies innovate. so they would actually hire us as consultants and we. Would you know figure out the best customer experience for them. The best product of breast best brand positioning and all of that so he really interesting Ideas came from that in. That is eventually where next bay came. Probe yeah one of them. One of the more interesting ideas that we were toying around with was Was bloom brothers. Which is the flower delivery service for. Many whoa what. What what's the blume brothers. Ferment though at target market the people are going to receive it are men It could be yes So basically that that that's the the premise is Guys like us. We just stuck at giving flowers and gifts to the women that we love to our girlfriends. found out about dongola. Didn't you no no we study in. Usc song that was still blocks away. From where i was trying to get my swag on one couple blocks away rocketed the school like all right. Have a book. Whoever's going to receive it it'd be like a princess. Yeah exactly but obviously there's donghua but but they're not very accessible right like to get from deng you gotta go to Places like crazy and it's so crowded even like us guys the average dudes who just stuck giving gifts where we're just like or if if we made a mistake we wanna say sorry Girlfriends or forgotten anniversaries. Or you're like. I need a last minute gift or something Brine i need help right. So oftentimes we observe that the typical behavior a the average guy is to go to flores or flower shop What's good.

"For you. What did you do obsessively to address that shipowner shoulder through again if you're obsessed about design and you've got to put in the dirt and the hustle in between while you're starting out at the end of the day you're not the only ones out there actually trove of good designers out there up north on. Yeah so it was up okay so for me. it was the juggling a lot of projects. I'm so don mentioned even like ran the agency together We had a few friends that we started businesses with was really just learning as much as could about the whole design process and how that ties into business so i freelance a lot. I did a lot of pro bono projects For for nonprofits. Just so i can get a sense of how businesses done. And then then i worked fulltime. So i i would just like working and doing design projects all day long all night long all weekend. Long rate and just really absorbing and becoming an expert in that field so to say so to speak but yeah i guess we just never really stopped learning and improving our craft of course tried my hand at development as well but in the nfl. Just got done to finish my homework. I did give it to the guy to that guy. Payment food and and turn it worked out great all right entrepreneurial son right don was obsessing over design order early grind for you like again people that code they day obsess over these things. They bring this back at home. And you know people people think that on if you spacing out again. He's trying to figure out that code. Yeah why why. Things are aren't working a bug which led it didn't work but for you don. What was the early grind line again. What was the that that the chip on your shoulder also also back in four way up naso you know like all rich i don't i can definitely say it wasn't so much about a cultural chip in my shoulder that i wanted to kind of you know Ultimately from me like many people early on. I got into entrepreneurship for the sake of wanting to be an entrepreneur and that i think is actually a really bad way of going about business and so that led me down a path of doing many different entrepreneurial things that may not necessarily have been very impactful or something else passionate about to give an example. I ended up working on a mobile app called quick. Pick and yeah and it is a various. Sounds like a quick wire. Spin off the distilling quite similar to honestly. This is horrible for at least what. We ended up doing a quick q. u. k. And pay p. I chew so no one could spell it bad branding but the by the way so like dick so pretty close. Maybe that acts upon with people are remembering the name but unfortunately we never even got it to a stage where we could raise money. We built on working at the idea. Was stupid app where you could take if you wanted to make a decision. Like what shoes did i would. I buy the photo of it and then blasted out your your friends. And then they vote quick. Pick that's idea there. And that was one of the early adopters of quick paul disappointment friend raid but also around the time that that rebecca black songwriter. Friday came out and she was like should ace or the back seat. So that's the quick picks that i did which you wish seats in the front seat now that allow one bon bon. Indeed right there. Yeah to even even Housekeeping company at a time so The idea was we provided luxury housekeeping company and essentially was focusing on making this a tech specific or tech oriented housekeeping company. But and then you know A number of other things another creative agency so you could say. I did a lot of things but i found later on that. What really Got me most excited was building things that many people could really appreciate and and Find meaning so treating a business and having to involve myself in every aspect from producing the product to marketing to organising all these events made me realize. Okay it's not so much about just entrepreneurial pursuits actually about producing making things. That are valuable to people. And so i think over time. And i can clearly say right now. What matters more me is not so much about being an entrepreneur. But it's about building something that i really think would help people or would provide value to people as many people as possible can actually make us off so i think that's it's kind of shifted to a more from shallow standpoint. At the way. I see two more deeper meaningful. pursuit Definitely your journey evolves and. I just wanted to track back and this is one thing i really wanted to ask you guys because you started very early and you. You jumped off deploy of entrepreneurship pretty young and the degree of success at that age giving the trajectory most early starters go through a lot of pain involved right not a lot of people make it. Plus you always have a young something. Mid twenties early twenties even a little late twenty s one thing that a lot of startup boundaries. That i know because i went through the same process is battling your own insecurities right. 'cause shit i wanna be a started boundary but there's so much uncertainty over your own self that you have to battle with. Did you have any type of experience over that and more those things that you want. You have dilbert come as a as a founder because all those insecurities sometimes can manifest in the business and the type of decisions actually me. Are you just making your own ego or you really that lead. At the start of provides the startup needs. What was that like. Oh hundred percent I think that insecurity will always happen. I would even say that insecurity may exist in like jeff bezos and elon. Musk especially more so that with us. At least and most entrepreneurs you you look more successful entrepreneurs and follow their path and see what worked for them and follow that but for someone like elon. Musk is doing what literally no one on earth has done before. And you're leading to charge of humanity. You could say like. Am i doing the right thing. Is this gonna work. You know so. I'd say it still exists in them to a hundred percent really believe that there is a always gonna be that insecurity. Am i doing the right thing. But i would say it's gone a lot better as time goes by of no yourself. More what.

Let's get into the interview and i'll summon up at the end. A michael okwu to the show is way get started gives a little background on yourself. Brian thanks for having me on Michael ford and from the kansas city area grew up in the mid west. Went to saint louis for for college and maryville university and at a biochemistry degree there. So actually you know in prep for this interview as a little research on your background as well and found out that your uh free technical background ended up branching into sales afterwards. I think we have common a little bit but got a chemistry degree was You know what really a bench scientists in college and educational work experience. Which was it was interesting. It was fun. It was really challenging. I joined that part of it. The the the mental challenge of that and Did actually what's called a liberal. Chemistry and was focused on method development for a company called sigma aldrich on Really purity of the define chemicals. They were shipping out so pretty technical but definitely very far from sales. So how'd you make that bridge that gap you know. It was probably similar realization that you came to that. I looked at the bench scientists next to me. That really couldn't care any less about his job. And you know looked at me you know. Put an even though. It was just an educational an internship type experience but my heart in the job in showing up early and stay late wind needed to happen. And i realized i you know based on the two percent raises. Oh come every year. It's gonna take me a long time to make anything significantly more than the person next to me. That really doesn't give a crap so that led me to a kind of figure out and start having conversations with people and actually had a Speaker guest speaker come to my Biochemistry lectures in college. That was a sales rep for shimon shimadzu and they're an instrument manufacturer actually sells to companies like the company that i was working for in college and he flat out told us how much he made and i was like no way. That's that's that's that's not a real number is like no no. This is the goal. I set for myself when i joined the company. He's like i hit it within the first two or three years. And i was like. That's unbelievable that that money's out there for people that are willing to put the time and effort in and you know since then. I really focused kind of shifted my my direction at that point. My my academic studies had finished all my technical classes so actually shifted and started taking a lot of business. Classes ended up with a business minor and really started pursuing conversations with with people that In my small network at that time that had experienced sales or business development leadership and tried to figure out what it was gonna take to to get to that level. Because at that point i i started to get really hungry

Choose applications were not recommended by career Justice Department officials workers for Jesus in Nevada and Lincoln Tubman foundation in South Carolina, not South Carolina, not surprised. Right? So, you know, the the names suggest things radically different but there you go. Okay, although the Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Palm Beach and Chicanos Por La Casa, Florida. I think I'm saying that right of Phoenix both have been slated to win job. After receiving High marks from outside contractors hired to review their applications. They were replaced by hookers for Jesus and the Lincoln Tubman Foundation, even though those two groups two groups received lower scores the department employees union filed a whistleblower complaint with the Inspector General amid concerns that ticks and not Merit factored into the awards manuals obtained by hoarders showed that hookers for Jesus has recently as 2018 had a policy of making church attendance is not mandatory for trafficking victims. Yep saying that it's safe house a requirement that legal experts said could run afoul of anti-discrimination laws so long, you're a victim once and your current to a case that I can't remember now Montanez versus forgotten state. I'm not sure this case is basically stating that we had. Lawrence. Applied for grants for their children government grants, right and they wanted to apply them to Catholic schools and were a Christian schools are really whatever. Yeah, and at first they told them they could and they told him they couldn't wage this is running concurrent with it. So now we're sending a huge president of funding for religious organizations both right both public-private misses, you know hookers Jesus, which is this end and then we have public schools on this end, right? So this is now covering the gauntlet, right? Yeah by Design time. Of course, I've been familiar with hookers Jesus for a company and he lowered of course the founder of hookers for Jesus denied that participation in religious activities is mandatory. I believe them. What do we mean by mandatory? They can say that you don't happen to go. But when everybody else goes, right and you're kind of shunned down it's like oh, but you don't believe and you're already been a victim of sexual right? So you're going to be ousted again in a community that you thought you were dead. Be bullied, right? You know, so it's it's kind of like that in the military as well guys. I'm sure you know guys will go especially to get out of Sunday boot camp. They'll go to church. Oh, right, and I realize all the way to say it boot camp and work or wired to a church and then it evolved into a whole right? So you're victimizing these women by ousting them like this..

"That's what they're doing with the four skins on the horse Canadian and then you're going to drink their blood but it's totally wrong to have an abortion. Not a vampire. You're just a channel. I guess that's not that's not what I'm looking wonders why I like the solecism. It's so weird. Best thing is state representative, Carol Mackenzie who's sister and Hagen web was allegedly abused by a former Parish priest told the public radio. I feel that this notice is Harsh and wage. Aleatory especially towards me as well as the other elected officials. Although I have long ago left the Catholic Church. They continued to berate and diminish the reality of what my sister took my family have endured because of their criminal behavior and lack of remorse or Contrition nicely put so it is I I can I ask why are there still Catholics? You know, it's you know, I don't fucking box mysterious walking in New York City. This is like the highest concentration of fucking Catholics are going to find we have Saint Patrick's Cathedral. This is the actual I don't know I think regarding if there's Catholics there definitely is a high concentration of fucking Catholics. Literally Catholics in New York because God damn it, it gets cold and we can't afford to you know, pay her fucking heat off because of the ride so we gotta keep warm somehow but they're the most liberal Catholics I have ever seen and in this fascinating case study of fuck the whole Bible right? Yep. Have to go to Saint Patrick's and get pictures for the gram right for the gram and I gotta go through the ritual. I am no longer allowed. I think they do the they do the rituals and everything, but they're just really last time. I went missing last time. I walked into Saint Patrick's try to light a candle twice. It wouldn't like we're not like something like accepted my life. I keep hitting every floorboard during mass and I'm like right in five here. I was like, oh there's a gift shop put my foot right through until you seen that was on the floor if this is not a side Kathy Catholics. Yeah. Okay, so Catholics are against abortion while wearing sacred garments of mixed Fabrics, right? Let's let's while eating well eating lobster and shrimp shack in while meanwhile Sister Mary Sue was down in fucking Red Lobster before Sunday mass real quick, you know stuff in the fucking face on a purse with with scallops, right? But no no the abortion is wrong right and wrong fuck these kids. Once they come out fuck these. Oh, yeah literally can't pay for their lunches were know as as man is saying pedophiles literally these kids but make sure they get to us off. Yeah, right Port them Well here here's the headline here boy boujee has now doubled down his defense on the band while hitting out at those who raised issues of child abuse within the Catholic Church to attack it..

Leading St. Jude's Genome Engineering Capabilities: A Chat with Shondra Miller

"Welcome Shandra Thick. You must be here all right so I would like to ask you about what you do. Junior current research on. Maybe about a little bit about your background as well. Yeah so I've been doing engineering. Basically my whole scientific career so I did my PhD on Singer. Nicholas which is kind of like the grandfather of Christopher Gas Ninety Will Matthew Portas lab and so we were at the time just doing protein engineering trying to get zinc finger. Proteins NUCLEAR ACES ACTUALLY. Cut some specific site in the genome. And it's sad thing now but I spent five years basically making a pair of glasses that gop so very exciting at the time but it really became outdated and so then after graduate school. I went directly into industry. I worked for Sigma Aldrich on their composers of technology. Where we're doing the offense and it was exciting time in genome editing. Because for me especially because I had been doing protein engineering and then I was able to go to sigma and they would give us the proteins and we actually do genome editing for the first time really. I was able to like okay. I want to make this point mutation. How do we do it? And we were able to do. Some of the first different types of editing so like with food chain Chen we published a paper. Where using singles trying to all go donors. Almost everybody uses now. We were one of the first to do that. We can do with high efficiency losing figuring places and so then in two thousand twelve so pre crisper still. I decided that I wanted to start. Asia resource at the Times inferior increases. Were so expensive. That people weren't really able to access them especially in academic so I think the Times in cases where like twenty five thousand dollars just to plasmids so you couldn't actually do your editing editing to get yoursel- liner animal model. So it was frustrating to me is like this is game changing technology. People people need access to this. This is going to change science as we know it and so I actually went to Washington University and I put the idea of starting to share resources. Said you know. People don't want to become genome engineering experts. They want their cell line. They WanNa make do a screen. They want their animal model. They WANNA continue asking the questions that they are experts and they just want the tool for the most part. So let's start a resource. Let's be the genome engineering. Experts will help other people expedite science at Wash U. in and around the world and so we started that it's called the engineering IPSEC center. It's still going strong G. I see there and then in two thousand seventeen. I got a call from Saint Jude. And they were like. Hey we want to start something like what you're doing that Wash U. as I said no I'm not interested at the time I was actually six months pregnant with my second child. I'm had started This core the see from there was like my first child. Not My biology child. Something that I cared about the people and what we were doing so it was really not very interested in. They said we'll consult for us in How to get this thing going and short story long. I guess I ended up moving to Saint. You'd because it's kind of a really special place to do research as like a magic fairy tale land to do research especially for a shared resource so we actually given dedicated. Rnd Time and we're institutionally subsidized and so on most Groups Shared resources pay their own way so basically the services that they provide pay their salaries paid for the reagents that they're using but at Saint Jude. They say no. We're GONNA guarantee your salaries we're gonNA give you money to actually do the science that you need to do to help everybody at Saint Jude. So you don't have to worry about that. Just do good science. So that's very freeing. And then the ability to have a dedicated are indeed budget. So we're like okay. We're going to not only do genome editing. For other people were GONNA add back to the field and and keep at the forefront of it so I know that was a really long answer five. That's how backgrounds and doing a lot of genome editing. The events Talen crisper over the last fifteen years or so. That's great. Could you tell us about a couple of your research projects that you have gone? Yeah so we do a lot of things to improve efficiency. We have some ideas about how to get longer inserts and two so one of the things that's really hard crisper is when you're trying to knock something in fairly easy to do something. Small appoint mutation or five tag but it gets more difficult as the insert increases so Rachel Levin in the lab. She's working on how to get longer inserts and increasing their overall rates of HDR something. Saint Peter's in the lab is working on some strategies for enriching the donor concentration in the nucleus. And I think one of the most exciting things that we're working on is a cure sickle cell initiative basically. Where they're you know. Saint Jude. It's a research hospital. We actually have our large sickle cell population in Memphis. I think there's about eight hundred sickle cell patients that we see at Saint Jude. And so send you actually partnered with several other groups not only at Saint Jude but also outside of Saint Jude. So we basically worked towards making therapeutic for sickle cell disease and Mitch Weiss Option Darsi and myself from Saint Jude Consortium. And so we're we're really looking forward. Hopefully going to a therapeutic In the coming years and so that's why the more exciting things that we're doing this more closely related to the Translational medicine wonder. How can you tell us a little bit about just different technologies age with Chris? Frightening so you tried like classmates. How did you come across it? The goers that Rene has ever feel y'all so we actually remain your own guide. Ernie's for five years. We WOULD MOSTLY DO PLASMA. Cloning where we played together you cut the backbone with type. Two S restrictions. I'm basically pop them in like into the planet and that works but it takes probably like four hours of hands on time ish or of about three to five days and so whenever we saw that you could do synthetic guides I guess the limitation was people were able to synthesize the long Arnaiz right. So I think that that's where something kind of burst on the scene and so that we saw that was attractive to us but we needed to be able to do it quickly right so we can make these platforms fairly quickly. Do also do. Ib Tea and make that fairly quickly. The synthetics at the time you know there are companies that were doing it but it was very expensive. You get quite a lot and we don't really need a lot. We have a lot of smaller projects that we're doing. It took too long for us right. So we're trying to make cell lines for folks. We're trying to make animal models for folks so we don't have to wait a month to get the guide so that's why we were making them ourselves so so they go came on the scene. I think we started. We made our first order to go in October. Two Thousand Seventeen. Basically gave us a quick turnaround time. I think we were like Beta testing small to smaller scale early on and so from then. I guess this history of doing this. Cloning bacterial colonies and doing many. Perhaps you're able to do make more cell lines and made more animal models and do more research. Christopher is a relatively young technology but it's made a pretty big impact as you've mentioned already. What do you think the next five years will look like in? Where do you think the field is heading? That's it's an interesting question. I guess there's two or three or four different areas that you think about I think about basic science and experimental biology. How can we do things more efficiently to make cell lines that people can understand biological processes or ask for biological question? So I'm usually thinking about research purposes. I think it's only getting faster. More efficient and cheaper which is really democratizing research. A lot of different ways I think crisper has been probably the biggest discovery understanding how to do crisper since like I think it will science face a science as much. Pr Has Changed Science. Maybe more you think about therapeutics there'd be trial we're going on with Christopher Pasadena. Think people starting with blood stuff because they can get to the stem cells in their starting with is stuff because they can get to the right cells so I think one of the biggest limitation to Crisper as far as there is delivery. How do you get it to the right cells So I think that's a limitation? I don't know I guess I would really say the sky's the limit just the ability to be able to go into complex genome and make precise modifications huge. I think we're only going to get better S. nine in all the variants or the logs. Pretty darn good. We worry about off targets for research purposes. Were not outright about it. Because you know. We're studying a question for their buicks really important. But we've made such big advances since you think about two thousand twelve two thousand thirteen. It's just it's a whirlwind and you think about how you know. I think the offense really paved the way. But you know the offense where we use a million tells like nineteen ninety nine two thousand three but took two thousand three two thousand ten before we even Pat Talents and then new talents has a very short heyday. And then Chris Brazil Blown on the scene. I think there's huge diagnostics agriculture therapeutics. It's just it's kind of unlimited possibilities so I think we'll see in the next few years and we're seeing now. A lot of ethical questions people are asking. What should we do because we can do a lot of things? But what should we do? I think that that's one of the things that people will be discussing over the next few years

"Now back to the story on October Twentieth Nineteen Eighty six the last of the Soviet double double agents that rick aims had betrayed in June. One thousand nine hundred five were being rounded up and killed and investigation into the CIA as more. Aw had been opened. The agency's top men were all too busy dealing with the Iran Contra affair to make any progress and Rick Ames. I was driving into the Soviet embassy to meet with Vlad his KGB handler flat explained to rick the reason for all the double agents arrests it wasn't the KGB's choice. They would have chosen to leave at least some of the traders in the field and use them as a tool tool to pass false information to the CIA but Rick's intelligence had been passed all the way to the top of the Soviet hierarchy to the general secretary of the Soviet Union himself. Mikhail Gorbachev furious about the betrayals Gorbachev ordered everyone on Rick's list to be killed immediately. Rick was shocked as usual. He was unbothered right by the deaths. He had caused what surprised him was that his name was known by the very highest echelons of Soviet leadership he was valued. Oh you buy them Vlad went on the KGB was sincerely sorry about the danger they'd put Rick in by acting rashly on his Intel. One of the ironies of counter intelligence is that acting on any information gathered puts the source of that information endanger. But Rick it didn't need to panic the KGB would stand by their man. Vlad promised they would start a series of operations designed to confound found in mislead the inevitable CIA investigation into its leak sealed with vodka. Vlad's promise of protection. It was a sincere one the KGB made good on its commitment to protect its most important asset beginning that December nineteen eighty six and continuing through the next five years the KGB ran an incredibly eh sophisticated interlocking series of at least five counterintelligence operations designed to protect rick aims in December nineteen eighteen eighty six they encouraged CIA suspicion that it was US Marine guards at the Moscow embassy who had betrayed counter intelligence. MM secrets the marines occasionally had illicit romantic relationships with Soviet women one of them the CIA suspected could have let a Soviet into the offices in the embassy. She could have planted a bug leading to the information the KGB craftily delete did everything they could to confirm these suspicions using informal contacts in foreign cities to pass false information to Washington and they even gave information directly to the CIA Soviet division it wasn't uncommon for the CIA and KGB to exchange information directly explains National Security expert and Pulitzer winner. Tim Winer although as this incident demonstrates it was always is crucial to take that direct communication with a heavy dose of suspicion in this case the CIA wasn't suspicious enough. The Task Force investigating the leaks spent months on the marine lead and they almost bought it the KGB also sent a missive directly to the CIA EH. Through one of their Berlin officers encouraging the idea that sloppy tradecraft and accidents had resulted in the capture of at least five five of the missing double agents within the KGB leadership disseminated. The idea that the arrests had all resulted from information soul to the Soviets by Howard. The sea is already discovered mole slowly. They hope that explanation might leak out to the CIA yet another tactic to confuse and mislead the KGB took the arrested double agents who were still alive and submitting to torture Orchard KGB headquarters and force them to call their CIA case officers were family members. They claimed that they weren't compromised. Remind and they hadn't been captured. They were in Moscow doing just fine finally the KGB ordered one of their officers was to turn dangle that is as we discussed last week to apparently volunteer his services to the CIA as a double agent all oh well remaining loyal to the KGB. The dangle told the CIA that there had been a security breach at their warrenton Virginia switchboard leading leading to the interception of top secret messages from CIA headquarters. All these deceptions kept the CIA task force on the leak. Busy composed of just one part time and two fulltime investigators. The Task Force was no match for the KGB's widely games and as the years went on and the task force members were loaded with other duties and investigations. The hunt for the most dramatic deadly leak in the history flailed going nowhere Bill Casey after his December nineteen eighty-six seizure for in the brain cancer diagnosis that followed was replaced as head of the CIA. By William Webster and while Casey had known the extent of the as as leaks in losses in nineteen eighty five and eighty six webster was never fully briefed on the issue other more recent issues took precedence and when he assumed the office he served as the head of the CIA from nineteen eighty seven to nineteen ninety one and all he ever knew was that a few years back a few operations had been compromised and a few agents lost he never knew that an entire generation of prize Soviet via double agents had been lost all at once. He never knew that. The overworked under staffed task force investigating the leak was going nowhere in fact he was only vaguely aware of the task. Force's existence the Soviet trickery protecting rick was more than aided by this mess of miscommunication within the CIA by October. Nineteen eighty eight. The task force had more or less collapsed. It had gotten nowhere aware and discovered nothing. Rick dozing away. His days at the overstaffed boozy Rome station was safe and thanks to the KGB. He felt cared for and appreciated to his life was good he was handing over the names of agents and the the details of operations at regular dinners with his cutout but now the KGB was handling the agency betrayed with its habitual subtle subtle manipulation unhindered by kill orders from USSR leadership. Much of the information. Rick handed them. They didn't use at all because it was too risky led directly back to rick but they still appreciate it and they paid for it. The masses of Soviet money were accumulating and Rick's bank accounts including two Swiss accounts one in his name and one in the name of his wife's mother. He fled Zurich on the weekends occasionally to cash deposits. Those trips didn't stand out to his colleagues at the CIA. He regularly flew all over Europe with his wife. Maria Rosario for little trips or weekend getaways making full extravagant and in public use of the funds. The Soviets showered on him. He had to explain the money somehow. Of course the salary was sixty thousand dollars. There's a year a good wage especially in the eighties but nothing near enough to support his luxurious lifestyle gallivanting around Europe in Italian alien suits to his colleagues. He implied his wife's family was extremely wealthy to his Swiss bankers. He claimed he was liquidating some of his wife's parents assets and to his wife. He explained that he was working for an old friend from college. College managing European investments. Keep it hush hush though. He cautioned her. This was a side Gig. That wasn't exactly forbidden bidden by his job with the CIA but not exactly Komi fo- either. He had to keep all his lies from converging. He wasn't is an exactly a meticulous spy but he knew if the wrong person caught onto the discrepancies between all his stories the tower of lies. This would come tumbling down. And he'd fall right along with them. After nearly three years of this plush lifestyle in Rome and the bumbling mess of the as I investigation into their leak rick prepared to head home to Washington. He parted from his cutout. The document that itemized his assignment once he was back in Washington the document explained how rick would communicate with the KGB in Washington. There'd be no cut out this time just dead drops in signals sites. Rick would drop off a packet of information at at a specified site. Then he'd alert his counterpart using an agreed upon signal in Rick's case it would be a chalk mark on mailbox a KGB officer would be on the lookout for that mark. Once he saw it he'd visit the dead drop site pickup a coup- his materials and leave money for Rick in its place. The system was often used by the KGB because it was easier to orchestrate then in-person meetings or live drops. Rick would supplement the dead drop system by flying to Europe or South America a few times a year to to rendezvous with his handler. The last note in the parting letter.

"In early nineteen eighty-six six the leaders of the CIA realized they had a problem. There was a leak with the agency was notoriously loath to consider a human mole. It was an old boys club full of Chum's from the Ivy League whose mothers lunch together at the Cosmopolitan Club. Poking around in their colleagues business was deeply distasteful. And why should they. The thaw one of their own would betray them was almost unthinkable so so they spent the winter of nineteen eighty six testing for a technical leak. Aberg wiretap or broken code. They found nothing so come spring. They put their in house investigator on the job. After several months he produced a circuitous inconclusive. report their previous mole. Edward Lee Howard may have betrayed some of the lost agents and maybe the investigators suggested the rest had had fallen prey to chance to small errors that multiply to produce disaster through a quiet summer with Nunu double agents arrested that seemed possible the leaders of the CIA barons as they were called cautiously allow themselves to hope it was true in this atmosphere of tense. Calm in July nineteen eighty-six Rick Games flew out to Rome his job there air was straightforward find recruit foreign agents willing to work for the CIA Soviets Eastern Europeans North Koreans. Anyone could could get that was his mission for the CIA. He had a second job on his hands just as he'd had in Washington one of the first the things he did when he arrived in Rome was to clear a recruitment effort with the Rome station. Chief Rick won approval to wine and dine one. Alexi crank of of the Soviet Ministry of Foreign Affairs as far as the CIA knew rick would be sounding out CRENCA as a possible double agent in in reality CRENCA was his cutout. Rick would use him to pass information to the KGB. CRENCA would give rick a box of Cuban in cigars lined with two hundred one hundred dollar bills in return. That is twenty thousand dollars worth more than forty six thousand in dollars in two thousand nineteen the information rick was handing over in Rome wasn't as crucial or as deadly as the Soviet counter. Intelligence documents documents. He'd handed over while working at the CIA headquarters in Langley but what is new position lacked in quality. It made up for in quantity an enormous amount of documents regarding operations all over Western Europe in the Mediterranean passed through the CIA as Rome station and and Rick saw them all he had plenty to keep the KGB satisfied. So rex days dragged on into the fall of nineteen eighty six six. They were outwardly pleasant and comfortable but dogged by hellish anxiety. He continued passing information through his cutout but he knew he needed to speak to his handler. Vladimir met Julia Have Vlad was a senior member of the KGB counterintelligence directorate he could explain the KGB's choice to call every agent. Rick had named the span of a year and how exactly the KGB would protect tech rick from that reckless choice. Rick was right to be anxious as the summer came to a close the hiatus on the disappearances arrests and deaths among Soviet double agents came to an end fall marked a new round of losses the CIA finally gave up the hope that the problem could be explained by a series of careless errors or their last mole. Howard it was time to get a task force on the leak AAC the FBI to started looking into the matter after the confirmed death of their to Soviet embassy recruits Martinez and Maturin Iran? But they knew nothing about the extent of the CIA's losses. The CIA didn't brief them or call them in to help the main investigation. This was another example of the CIA and FBI as recurring resentful and self-defeating inability to work together. The two investigations continued separately both sniffing at the trail of Rick's betrayal even with their resources split though they were dangerous rick knew that they had to be onto him or at least onto the fact that there was another mole and the CIA the arrests and executions of Soviet double dilligence one after another. Were like a full page ad shouting mole in bold letters. Rick should have handed the names over one at a time time. He realized he'd never expected the Soviets to take out every agent identified in the span of year anxiously waiting for his KGB AGP handler to fly from Moscow to Rome and late. October Rick Drank himself into as much of a stupor as he could and waited in early. October nineteen eighty six just as the CIA and FBI. Leak investigations were getting started. Rick caught a very lucky break. News of the infamous Iran. Contra affair broke in the US. The CIA was immediately thrown into turmoil. armorial that would consume the agency for the rest of the decade. The Iran Contra affair was a convoluted secrets scheme run by. President Reagan's Reagan's administration began with illicit arms sales to Iran. which was the subject of an embargo at the time? The profits from those sales sales were quietly diverted to send more weapons to the Contra rebel army in Nicaragua which once again the Reagan administration had been legally legally barred from doing the CIA immediately went into emergency mode throwing all its energy into managing the fallout two months after the scandal broke. Bill Casey the head of the CIA had a seizure. Clair George the man in charge of investigating the CIA's mole all was indicted on nine counts and with the agency in turmoil the investigation into rick aim subterfuge fell fell by the wayside. Rick however didn't know this of course he heard all about the Iran Contra affair from Rome but he had no idea how it was affecting the investigation into his own subterfuge so he went into his meeting Vlad on October Twentieth Nineteen Eighty six chomping at the bit in fear and frustration and a few drinks deep of course as he always was for his meetings with the KGB see the black car picked him up at a bar. He wore a jacket and a baseball cap pulled. Low shoved his glasses in his pocket. The car drove him around Rome for forty minutes to ensure there was no tail. Then finally Rick Hunch down in the back seat and the car sped through the Soviet embassy gates coming up.

"Oct Nineteen Eighty six. Rick Ames was in Rome. Living the good life is suits. Were bespoke bought with an endless influx of Soviet money his days were lazy punctuated by boozy meals and endless stacks of documents documents. Perfect for packing up and handing to the KGB. Rick was anxious. He was shadowed by guilt and fear. Swilling going back Italian wine and shots vodka like he was tonight was no light hearted European game. It was a coping mechanism and an ineffective active one. The fear lingered and he was angry his loyalties were with the KGB. Now he'd relied on them to keep him safe. That was what he got in exchange for the reams of classified documents. He'd been smuggling the Soviets for more than a year that in the money they weren't keeping their side of the bargain word had spread through cryptic reports and hall gossip Soviet double agents were disappearing appearing and dying left and right and rick knew exactly what was behind the disaster. His betrayal there there was no way the CIA could miss this. They'd find him out the KGB should have been more careful more subtle. It should've left more more of the double agents in the field. Use them to pass along false information to the CIA killing them all. That was a problem. Jeopardized Rick it was time to go meet his spy. Master time to demand an explanation for the reckless way the Soviets were endangering him and to beg the KGB to keep the CIA off his tracks. Aw this is espionage.
