Oh okay from kevin murdoch. And then he bought sun in brittany brought. Some venture eventually ended up in a battle with with robert maxwell and one that the sun but he built his empire first austrailia and of course now the wall street journal fox He is your post. The times of london does on a media. Baron and apparently has quite a bit of clinton loss in australia. Because he yeah.

Guest Teacher Benjamin Schneider on How to build and scale a digital marketing agency only with remote workers
"A marketing agency is one of the best ways to build wealth. Why because a lot of people don't understand it's easy to scale of course it's hard to scale if you're doing the work but the point here is that you don't do all the work you hire other people. Great talent designers developers hardworking people that you can get them to do certain tasks work on the projects that you get hired to do an reap the benefits now. Ben's going to break down. Show you who to look for the mistakes people make but i'll be back at the end of the episode to tie things up and share my takeaways but for now take it away. Ben guys welcome is bench neither. I'm an entrepreneur from germany. And i own several businesses and one of the business i do is having an online marketing agency. So that's what we're going to talk about today. My topic is how to build and scale a digital marketing agency. Only with the remote workers. I've been working with remote workers for around eight years and i'm the owner of chop mafia dot com remote work platform. So you can go in hire remote work beer and that came from my digital marketing agency because our online marketing guy. So i have my own ecommerce store and out of that ecommerce store people were asking me. Hey ben how are you doing this. Can you help me with that. And all that kind of stuff and out of this. I created or found my digital marketing agency so our facebook ads did more than two million dollars for clients in zales with facebook ads but the problem was by selling companies. These facebook ads. They do not only need the facebook ads. they also do need landing pages. They need google ads. they need. We deals for youtube. They need graphics for youtube or graphics for ats graphics for the website. All that kind of stuff. So i was realizing. Hey if you're selling facebook ads. It's a good business. But companies need more. They need a full service solution and they want to have a full service solution because they do not want to have usa facebook guy and another one for google ads and another one to grade sales funnels. They want to have one agency one person to talk about their marketing stuff and outsourced that so by realizing that was thinking about. Hey how can. I build an agency like that. Because i'm only a one man show in the half other businesses to manage. And i'm quite good at facebook ads but i have no idea about google ads or some other stuff like billing websites or developing some stuff stuff like that so i need people for this. Hiring people from my country from germany is quite expensive so if you would hire a designer for example that custody around three thousand dollars a month so basically. It's an euros but yeah three thousand dollars a month. That's quite the same so this was too expensive for me okay. That was just not possible. So i needed to have another solution and then i came on the idea. The possibility to hire people from the overseas from the philippines pakistan india countries. Like that. why. Because these people were a lot of more cheaper than the german guys. So i was starting with that was trying that and some positive experiences some negative experiences but in general it was good in general it was working so i need to find myself a way to find people who are fitting into my company and were having a very high quality and this was the key to build and scale might digital marketing agency. Because as i mentioned i wouldn't have been able to hire three four five german guys. That would be just too expensive. But i was able to hire some people from the overseas so i started with hiring a designer and i would recommend you guys this. Start with hiring a designer. Why because definitely there's no company in two thousand and twenty one who do not need a designer in their company because you have so much posibilities to spread content out there and that's why you definitely need to have a designer but the other advantages that designer does not need to have any log in credentials or access to any sensitive data or something like this you can just give them a few pictures and title or anything like that and tell him hey. Police creamier facebook ads. Spanner out of that. And in addition to that you see the result immediately with a developer. If you're another developer guy you have no idea if this wella per is good if this is fast or anything like that but the with a designer you see it easily you see easily on. The result of this design is good or not that he take around one day for this or one hour as fast or not so. It's very very easy to start with with a designer as a remote worker indefinitely you need to have one in your company. I just proudly recommend that so our starting also they designer and this man helps me to improve my facebook ads because we have awesome designs. But before i did all designs and all the banners and all that stuff by myself. And i'm definitely guys not a designed so you can imagine how tremendously the quality was improving by that guy so realizing hey this was working with the design guy. I get one step ahead. I hired someone for google ads. I hired someone for wordpress websites and stuff like that. So i was not only able to provide high quality to my clients with that remote working guys. Some accompany hours able to widen my portfolio. So i wasn't the for the branding out there. I was still the facebook. At sky in the facebook ads marketing like a guru and sold my book an amazon bestseller and stuff like that but then the back end i was able to sell them not only facebook ads but google ads and landing paycheck and a new website and email marketing. And all that stuff as well. Because i have a team right now and this is very easy scalable because if you're found a way and we come to data and a few seconds if you have found a way how to hire good people and not being scammed by people and really knowing that this people half good and high quality output you could easily repeat that hiring process and scale your business with that. As i mentioned. I've created more than ten million dollars ten million years in sales for my clients. This was only possible with having team. So how did you do that. You got on dot com on my platform if you would like to check this out. Fourteen days for free and create a shop post. We have only. Id verified user skies this very very important also. Go hiring on another platform. Feel free to do that but definitely do only hire people who are ide- very fight

Biden Will Need to Rebuild International Leaders' Trust After Trump's Wrecking Ball Approach to Foreign Policy
"I think one can't overstate what has happened. In the last couple of weeks with respect to joe biden engaging on the world stage but in particular ways it's not. It's not pink cloud to pink cloud with everybody in fact. He had a tough conversation with israel's prime minister. Benjamin netanyahu and the lack of conversation with the saudi crown prince mohammad bin salman sort of sending a message to both of them to that america will have a clearer role even in the middle east. Do you think about it. You're you're trumps favorite leaders. In hamad bin. Salman was perhaps at the top of that list. The first trip down trump took as president overseas. He broke precedent. Instead of going to one of our neighbors he went to saudi arabia. And of course the leader that donald trump would never criticize was vladimir putin asking what you see is joe biden very deliberately picking venues this munich security conference where he gave that speech today. Virtually that's the venue in the heart of europe. Signalling you are friends. You are allies. Not these other guys. the agenda is different. He's talking about democracy sending up for russia. Climate change diplomacy to get back into the iran nuclear agreement so both the tone the settings and the substance is entirely different than what we've seen the last four years so ben what. This is the moment to determine whether some of those alliances have been damaged obviously g. seven is a is a key alliance. Nato is one that was undermined by by donald trump. Is everybody happy to take america back again. Are they okay to say. Let's just forget about the last four years where it's back to business. Well yes no on the one hand it just shows you how extreme the trump policy is or was that joe biden's had to go out of his way to reaffirm we are a member of nato. We honor our commitments to nato. Were back in the paris agreement. From which the us lead in negotiating. We're prepared to have diplomacy to go back into the iran agreement that we took the lead in negotiating a so. This is a sea change. I think the rest of the world particularly allies have thought on the one hand. We very much want america back back at the table back. Defending a set of values back working to solve problems like climate change or dealing with pandemics where trump had been totally absent on the other hand. They just lived the glass for years. And they're looking over don't biden shoulder and thinking who are those crazy people behind you who stormed the capital january six. Can we trust that. The americans won't do that again in four years. Can we trust though. Keep their word. If we want to negotiate a complex agreement like the paris agreement was or the iran nuclear deal. Can we trust. The americans won't just tear it up so his cask is is much harder than just making a speech in setting the right tone. He's going to have to build back. Bill ity month-by-month year-by-year initiative by initiative. Because of the wrecking ball coach. Down trump took to our alliances in our room the world.

Offered as a Substitute (Genesis 44:33)
"Chapter forty four verse thirty three now therefore please let your servant remain instead of the boy as a servant to my lord and let the boy go back with his brothers. Wow this is pretty powerful verse when you stop and think about what judah just said to joseph so leading up to this There's a lot in the story. I don't want to spend all the time recounting what has happened in this chapter but basically at this point joseph is saying leave benjamin with me and you go back to your father and judah steps up and he says please let your servant remain in other words let me remain instead of the boy and i'll be your servant joseph and remembered do doesn't know this actually joseph his brother that he's talking to right now but he says let your servant remain instead of the boys the servants my lord and let the boy go back with his brothers that is a radically different posture toward a younger brother. What judah and his brothers displayed tour. Joseph years ago think about it judah and his brothers sold joseph into slavery now judah and his brothers have the opportunity to do the exact. Same thing with benjamin. Just leave him here as a slave and go back live your lives but judah does something very different than what happened in genesis chapter thirty nine. Here judah offers his own life as a substitute for benjamin. So that judah would be the slave instead of benjamin now think about that picture on a much bigger level because one day a descendant would come from the line of judah who would offer himself as a substitute sacrifice but not for a family member this descendant from judas line would offer himself as a substitute sacrifice for you to set you and me free from the slavery of sin and death. Jesus from the line of judah would say i will lay my life in the words of philippians chapter two versus five to eleven. Who being in very nature. God did not consider equality with god something to be grasped but made himself nothing taking the very nature of a what of a servant being made in human likeness and being an appearance as a man. He humbled himself and became obedient to death. Even death on a cross. Jesus offered his life as a substitute sacrifice for you for me that we might have a relationship with god the father there we might be saved from the slavery of sin and death to experience eternal

With no Keystone XL pipeline, whats Albertas Plan B?
"Jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Jason marcus off is the alberta correspondent for maclean's magazine. He joins us to try to explain what happens now. Hello jason wish me luck so in the couple of weeks now. Since joe biden has taken office and immediately cancelled the keystone excel permit. How his albert reacted. Not well as could be. Expected is opposed the way i'd put it. You know jason kenney got elected with a three word slogan not a phrase three word slogan jobs economy pipelines pipelines was the big punctuation point on that. And it's been a big issue for help out bird government and the economy for a long time that we don't have this big glut of oil sands and oil were producing and nowhere really to shit or no way to ship it out of there. That's been a big drag on alpern awale prices and benjamin prices for quite a while now keystone excel has been in the works for basically a decade now uh since they applied for this project as transcanada energies into long that they're no longer called transplanted called tc energy. Canada became less of an on vogue term to use in the names and this this has become the gun of the poster child. The original poster child for environmental activism and push back against oil industry pipelines The americans have been pushing back on this south from the left for quite a while. obama killed in two thousand fifteen. He decided to not allow permit. Donald trump brought it back in two thousand seventeen and it was no surprise. Almost anybody that Biden was going to kill it in in twenty twenty one Once he got nauseated and yet it was portrayed as a major disappointment and huge letdown for the government and to some extent for canada. Yeah i was gonna ask if obama killed this thing once already And it's really unpopular with the american left. Why didn't it seem like we were more prepared for this. You know i played a clip In the intro of kenny reacting on the day of biden's inauguration but surely as soon as it became clear he won. This was coming down the pipeline. There was an optimism and almost. I'd say an idealism about how a biden administration might act. People knew well the the history and the baggage that this project had that it was killed by obama when joe biden was the vice president of course and this had become this iconic push for the environmental movement did it it had that totemic status and yet there were people within the canadian government and especially the alberta government who thought they crashed an argument Through which this would work and that had several layers to it one Was the fact that there were many union. Jobs in america And in canada on the go for this there were was going to produce jobs at a time when jobs are scarce and these economies need these construction industrial and infrastructure jobs and they were hoping that would appeal to the lunch bucket. Union leanings of joe biden in his administration. There was also an argument that this was not the same project and the ever loyal sent throughout the same oil sands that they were in twenty fifteen when this project was rejected by obama or before twenty fifty back when there was much less of an issue of oil sands cleaning up their act like there is now out the oil sands have worked their best to lower the carbon intensity and the carbon footprint of their projects and they were going Tc energy the company that was going to build. This pipeline was talking about making their project. Carbon zero carbon neutral net zero through various means the actual pipeline construction itself. Not the oil flowing through it and there was also gonna talk Giving indigenous which oppose this quite often in the states Some equity stake in it so there were various ways. The canadians albertans thought they could thread the needle and make this an appeal peeling project. Make it some kind of package. Deal with other green initiatives that That canada and biden would go through jointly but the legacy of this project the baggage of this project mistakes the politics surrounding this whole saga from obama to trump to biden Made it an easy win for For biden to kill despite all the positives that this project could have given

Which was sort of like crosby stills nash kinda style with leather leatherwood and then milk would maybe a little bit of. Did you research Yeah well like. I said you know. He was living in the ohio area early in his life and he actually met rick Rick was also in that area. Rick is originally from the baltimore area but when he was Early high school years His family moved to the cleveland area. Right in cleveland but that area so he also became a musician. Obviously so his bands and benz bans. Were sort of playing the same circuits in the same clubs. So that's how they eventually mac and then they decided to have a band together and they toiled around. The cleveland area michigan I tell you this was. They won an overnight success. I tell you they really. They were on the road and were you know quote unquote starving musicians for a long time. They went to new york for a while to try to get a record deal. That didn't work. Came back to cleveland again. So they were together for almost a decade before finally decided okay. It's just not working in this area. I wanna go to boston. It's a college town you know here. It's a really hip scene. There's you know because it's a college town. There's always a place to play as far as college parties and clubs and the club scene was really big in boston at the time so rick decided to go to boston and then didn't go with him at first This is you know the early seventies now and ben had lost his dad so he decided he wanted to go to boston. You wanted to stay back. In cleveland and be with his mom and kind of help her get back on her feet and make sure she was okay but then after about six months or so. 'cause we're getting a hold of ben saying you gotta come to boston. You gotta come eventually when benn felt comfortable enough to you. Know leaves The area in cleveland. The felt like his mom was doing okay. He actually went to boston and they started a ban there. And that's where it comes in they You know the early seventies at the time that whole acoustic folk king you know. Still the nash. Kinda thing was big for a few years in that that you know it was always. There's always an audience for it but it was really big for years and early seventies. They actually started out as they do all in a houston dual and we're just playing bars and clubs and they did that for a while and they actually got a record deal and the milk would album came out But it didn't do very well so they kind of scrapped. Asshole idea was called. How's the how's the weather site. They're really they're really hard to find now. To a matter of fact I'm don't own a copy. But i've seen it before on ebay and the things they get like hundreds of dollars for that album now cars if you're a big cars the cars collector and you really want that thing you got to pay a few hundred bucks for it now. Leaders will love that. If they haven't heard right. Yeah if you have. A copy of nuke would There's a car fan out. There that will pay big bucks for it. I haven't i haven't taken the plunge on that one yet. I would like to have a copy of it. You know to have it. But i haven't gotten that far yet So anyway when milk would didn't really go anywhere Rick being the leader of the ban and the main songwriter decided to scrap that idea and he wanted to turn to more of a traditional rock. Sound i guess he was really into velvet underground as you know the whole thing That was his kind of deal back. Then so he stroked all down. Tried to be a rock band again. And that's when they brought in the other guys in the band and before they became the cars they were a band called. Captain sling stone. Asked me where that name comes from. Or how they got Rock band format was a rock band format but not quite Not quaint sounding like the cars. It was kind of it as more a smoother almost jazzy. You're kind of sounding like steely dan. Kind of sounds interesting so kind of inbetween acoustic sound and a hard rock sound. And they were capita swing for a while. And that's when they started to get noticed a little bit. It's elliot houston joint iraq. And and then they brought in greg hawkes as well And that's when they actually started to get a little airplay so now we're talking about nineteen seventy five and seventy six and back. In those days. Radio deejays had a little more freedom a lot more freedom than they do now now a dj has to look at a piece of paper and follow a format. And this is what. You're gonna play back then. Dj's were allowed to play things that they liked her new things that they thought the audience would like and there was a now famous dj in boston. Her name is maxine sartori and she's pretty well known She was known for helping. Aerosmith get started because obviously of course they were in the boston area. She helped billy squire in his early days and she went to a club one night and heard cap'n swing so they weren't even the cars yet and she really liked their songs and she met the guys in the van and she took a demo that they had made in local studio and she actually started putting it on the air. Wbz which of course you know. Iraq san and you're into radio you know a lot of people know you'd be c. n. I mean one of the most prolific rock stations ever in this country He started playing it on the air and people started liking it. And that's how they kind of got some momentum going and then of course they of course -lica- rick has been known to be kinda. He was kind of accused of being a dictator at times Not that that's really a bad thing not charge on. It's called being the main songwriter. So he decided the captain's swing thing was going okay but he wanted to strip it down even more and have a more of a basic rock sound. 'cause i had mentioned cap'n swing had a little jazzy or kind of horrible name. Captain swing and my idea. I said don't ask me where he got that name from. Because i don't know here's another one before cat and swing. They were called. Richard and the rabbits yes sounding name. I'm glad they talk back. Name of even gone in the mid sixties. Richard and the rabbits exactly so anyway. He decided to strip it down even more so thinking about that velvet underground kind of sound and also. Now we're talking around seventy seven seventy and this is also when you know. I hate to label music or labels genres. But it's when that more new wave is kind of sound coming in like blondie and talking heads and that's sound was starting to to you. Know be over the record charts so we stripped it down again and he went into his basement and he scrapped all the songs all the songs except for one or two that captain swing had been playing because they were doing. Original music with captain swing. They throw a covering here there but it was still original music they were doing scrapped all those songs and that's when he will all of the songs that appeared on that connick debut ours album swings song survive. Bye bye love oh nice. I think there's one more tune it's escaping me at the moment. The bye by laws is the one that stands out. I've heard some demos. There's floating around in the sand we call the cars fans The santa rama we hope and There some cap'n swing demos floating around. And i've heard those demos and by by rav is the one that stands out to me. It was a jazz. Steely dan kind of version of it. By the way. I.

Having come home was the answer I needed. In my long suffering. Am I gay debate. been there. like pretty much any American. School mind was stratified by cliques, typically claimed a specific territory as there's a learned early that befriending enough people in as many clicks as possible was a survival tactic that would allow me to get through my four years of high school, relatively unscathed tales. Tale as oldest time it also helped me ensure I always had the best scoops on the the school. Newspaper interesting is very naito to know. This is very andres argument. One morning I sat with some of my friends in a hallway that led from the cafeteria. Again will call Brad. Approaches US and nervously interrupts. He says hey. You're Mike Great. Can I talk to you privately? Matt, but you'd like to. I'll pick it up from there I thought it was strange, but I agreed and followed him outside to a remote area, hidden from view by a large PRA tube. Rinse in the wall. Don't would approach to prince is, but I can picture nego. What's up? I asked nervous about why he wanted so much privacy. I knew of him, but couldn't really say with any certainty that I knew him. Are You gay? He blurted out I was certain in that moment that I was going to get the shit beat out of me. He was easily much stronger than me. And we were outside of anyone who might end up passing by under pure coincidence, a nodded and brace myself instead of his fist. What can flying at my face was his lips. Pressed them to mind so fast.

The way it was doing in that moment there was no gravity. There was no school. There was no rough concrete, painfully pressing against my back and head out. There was only the line where our bodies pressed together. When the first bell rang, the kiss entered any gave me his number and asked me to call him after school. My friends waited on me to rejoin them and could see I was somewhat dazed. I only told them I'd have to explain everything later. It was the longest school day of my entire. Life Matthew.

Always on fatherhood we have seven children range from ages eleven down to identical twin boys that are about sixteen months, so we have eleven and ten year old girls, eight and seven year old boys, four year, old girl and identical twin boys that are like sixteen months, so we got a lot going on in the house.

My son, my oldest son, eight year old, has really in football He thinks he's a football player even though he hasn't really played it all. Kinda funny doesn't flag football. Mother daughters in a track. I mean we've got the gamut. The younger ones aren't into it as much yet, but you know I think they I think they will be at some point Bob. I just want them to. PLAY THEY WANNA play and I don't want them to feel an impression from me that after play they enjoy that that's the biggest thing. Not Feeling that they have to play, because daddy plays board. Because you know, everybody can go there and route. Yeah, I don't think one of the benefits. Today's the there's so many e. every sport has its own LE-. Give the kids a little taste of everything, and they could pick out pick and choose what they like. So I think that's pretty cool. Or you know it's important because you know quite honestly. We specialization now with a lot of parents do the temptation to do that. Really specialize at a early age. and. I think that it does benefit is to try a lot of different things. You never know what they're going to be good at. You. Never know what they. Will will try them. And you know and speaking with a lot of orthopedic doctors. They're starting to say that they see more more or the beating. Andrew's younger kids, which means that a lot of these kids are.

How who changed your life I think for me. Those obviously that sense of responsibility and responsibility of care of a baby or a family, but of understanding the role of. Influence that you have on the next generation, I mean it really is powerful a man. Thank you know when you sit in there. Holding your newborn child you're. You're looking in the face of places that you will never go to? Law Willing because they're gonNA outlast you. And how are you going to positively affect that child? What are you gonNA, teach him or her. What are you GonNa Pour into them. And! How are you going to do it? It can be very overwhelming, so I remember feeling overwhelmed. and I still feel that way in a different way now. But it really is a tremendous sense of joy as well because. These people look up to you and really need you. Yeah well, said I I couldn't agree more I. Love Being a Dad, and it's like especially I felt the same way first time becoming a dad, and then I felt felt that all them people that were telling me Oh.

Don't know if I should go for number three because I felt like as a guy wanted a boy, but now I tell you what. Got was favorable to us because he gave us those two girls I. because there is no way my boys will be able to handle and take care of the younger siblings in helpless the way our girls do seriously us.

"Day fighter but yet we should just make a lot of crappy movies women that I miss. Crappy MOMS Moonshot Weirdo eighties and nineties. Movies he just they're not gonNA sorry his old man talk but there's just so many small movies that were just really fucked up and weird and just not going to happen anymore. I don't think I don't think you're GONNA get a Pulitzer today. Well Book Smart Bookmarks Nine Smart Book. Smart bookmark I went. I went back and watched. I won't back and watch total recall recently and I was thinking like that's an example of the kind of movie that that I don't I like I'm not smart enough to say what it is about that movie. That is so weird that makes it so like except for seven right. Yes Paul Villanova. And it's the it's the one where Schwarzenegger gets the memory of the Mars vacation. Yeah it's it's so silly silly movie but also he so horny he's really warning ends like super super well executed but for like I. It's like there's a lot wrong with it but also taking a big swing i. I don't know it's like the like all. The marvel movies are on most senses. The much better movies than total recall. But they're also smooth paste. It's just it's like slurry of entertainment that I don't really remember like I remember every time that Arnold Schwarzenegger like killed someone with a chainsaw and our total recall. I don't remember any events in any marvel movie like say greatly like I was so excited by cats. We're to come out of the studio system and somehow nobody noticed that this was happening so many people had to make decision for this to be the way it is so many people had either affirmatively or passively say this is okay and just got moving through the pipeline. It's incredible like was high. We were all shouting and waving phones. Jennifer or Jennifer. Hudson was singing. It was the Snot all the SNOT. Gosh like she was a different movie and that was fine. The moment when rebel Wilson. Unzips what you thought was her for. That was long. Somebody had taken a phone in the theater and shot that and put it up like the Wiki that we're gonNA came out. I just watched it that loop that over I she eats the roaches and then she gets up and she does and I was like I. I don't know what I'm watching like. I wish they had done it with like they were just doing. Cats cats doing cat movements. But I know it's wholesale is like the choreography but still I would have liked to watch really good. Cgi cats instead of like the weird cat. People HYBRID LIKE HOUSE CATS. Son's house cats quite fully door. I mean I would be on board though it would be amazing. There should be more movies with cats. The shed Max if you got any progress on buying tiger have you looked into that anymore. Veronica was not well but the Tigers bad. Yeah I think I think actually yeah. There is another update it's welcome. I think a lot of people had this experience. I started watching tiger king in the first half hour of watching tiger king. I was like I should get a tiger. It's very attainable for me. Like because they're all talking about that you can go out and get one of these things for two thousand dollars and I was like well Shit. I can get a tiger and then the more you watch tiger king. I think it probably did a pretty good job convincing me. That wouldn't be a good thing for my lifestyle just because it's does not make assumptions. Oh you took it might take away was gonNA get tiger. I'm like that was really. I think a lot of people watch you start watching it and you watch all these people buying when you're looking at the tiger cubs and they're buying them and you're like man that would be. Maybe I should get a tiger. That'd be cool. That'd be a cool interesting thing about me if I had a tiger. Well I if tigers are only a couple thousand dollars slot them. I then downgraded to the sugar glider. Here's what happened with that. It Veronica's not a fan sweet. Little Sugar Glider Name Potato. Cute can no they make sound? That's very upsetting to the Senate hacking hacking cry. Oh and they're nocturnal. So they make the sound all night. I mean that's basically a cat that flies at the baby. And then also the other thing is they they. I was thinking that it would eat berries. Sort of adorable. Like maybe I'd feed it like raspberries they eat grubs and worms and cockroaches and things like that and so Veronica pointed that out. She's like are you going to get the live critters and feed the sugar glider? The by pets your pets. Yes exactly I was like and I was like well. No and I was like. Would you do that? And she's like I don't want it to begin with so I just kept it downstairs. You keep it downstairs potato could just live in your studio. I would still need to have a special container of grubs defeat Chicago in the forceps in that I have to feed the sugar glider. The Oh Max when we feed our bearded Dragon Horn worm. He so cute because we feel it's so cute. You should get that get something you can feed that just moved for the Kerry satisfying well. And when you get something like feeding alive grub to a bearded dragon. There's just something about it. That's very dark and satisfying because they just are still at peace than so happy and just seeing them like rip it apart and it's like oh I just end. I helped end a life but they seem cool. This is actually is actually extremely dark. A Deli -tainer. This is so fucked up. I freely admit this is super fucked up. You get a deli -tainer. It's got holes in the LID. The LID is taped on because the LID. Let me get this right yeah. The LID is actually going to be sort of the floor. So when you turn it over. So what would be the bottom of the bill? Tanner is this gross light brown rudimentary paste. There's a ladder. And there's twenty five tiny horn worms on the little ladder. And they climb up there and they eat the rudimentary paste and shit down into the LID. And then sometimes you and in this Lacob you just keep in the closet and let me leave Yes yes you will soon grow row quite quite rotund giant comedy tweezers. You grab them and then you feed them to another animal. It's fucked up. I'm not I'm not like I haven't I thought about it a lot but I'm not one hundred percent. Sure that the sugar gliders deserves to live more than the GRUB I mean. That's like you're doing. That's a very confident moral calculus if you're fattening up the grubs to feed the sugar glider he feed the GRUBS you've for sure decided that the sugar glider is more important than the GRUBS and. I'm not sure I'm not that sure about Pat. Who only ever had like as an adult?.

"There isn't. There's not really a new Roger. Ebert is there. I was thinking about like isn't it? Isn't it a good feeling when you sometimes I'll go watch a movie like I will watch for the first time an older movie and then after it's done and I'm thinking about it I will realize? Ooh There's probably a evert review of this movie of it. Yeah exactly and I can. I can go get the correct opinion about this film. Like forget what I think like. What's the right thing to think about it man? There isn't really. There's not really. A new criticism is not in the in the does not occupy the same place in our culture. I guess you know he had. He had a handful of famous. Takes the did not age. Well they were. Kinda lame at the time and did not age. Well but are we GONNA cancel. Roger Ebert canceled. No but like you know. This is taken video games was a little bit silly even by my standards but pretty. I mean he was such he had such an against an is such an ear for recognizing something that needed to be written about. And that's that's such a gift that we don't even realize how few people have that really well just is of course the all the way down to like his stuff like fruit card and all the cliches and movies and like I think. I think you're right. Max I don't know who I don't know who Ebert is now. Criticism is another thing. That's sort of suffered in journalism. Used to have like. Oh like yours all kinds of people reviewing stuff and now I'm like I don't where where's the there's so much content but where's all the criticism but maybe there's sound yes? Absolutely people are looking. I think people often just looking for an advocate. They're looking for somebody. Like I mean not not to be Brodry Everett here but like if mostly what's out? There are the blockbusters that can get created the tent pole ten movies a year for a studio or whatever I mean. What are you really? I think vendors endgame was okay like it was. It was a good movie. It's fun movie. It's cool but like I don't know what what do you have to say about that? It's not ultimately about either the medium medium or on how fans act about like. What is there to say? He looked good. That guy from no country it was really good as the purple man. What he what do you say about it versus you? Look at a show like a podcast called the watch the or even like the the just instills podcast with Tim. Goodman which recently ended he good time TV talk machine but in about the medium or the way that like the show upgrade has become increasingly about you know streaming media. That's a more interesting conversation in some ways than how the purple man did in the movie. I think that's why a lot of critics are struggling because people react. They don't just react to media differently. They're consuming it in completely different ways so the reaction is different based on like I mean. I don't know if people are watching tiger king for the first time this moment are freaking out as much as we all did like how much of that is. Like guys thing is are. We just excited to watch something together again. Like because game of thrones was a year ago so now we don't watch anything at the same time and there's really I'm kind of going back through births old stuff because I'm such a nerd. But like he wrote an amazing thing about babe pig in the city to babe pig in the city. See even butch butchered has had lime. Wow butchered semantic. Oh and I mean. We were all in the movie theater watching Bay big big in the city. And it's I mean I'm sure Emily Nussbaum is I think. She talked about this in her new book. Like at the end of it. But it's like we are at a time where we don't even know what media is we should critique lake. Are we going to talk about you? Alexandra the story you wrote about trump or the fact that trump featured it or the White House featured in a press release as news like the onions are just. There's just too much and then your eyes start to water and you girl up into will little ball and hide under your desk the lyrics that I want set that to music I I found the amazing Ebert quote. I liked babe for all the usual reasons but I like babe pig in the city more and not for any of any of the usual reasons because here is a movie. Utter utterly bereft of usual reasons and like this is so beautiful. There was George Miller. Right you're Llosa neck period. Two fast two furious adrift his logger. I it's the they've just gotten they just got up to the podcast of a lot. Check has been doing Miller movies. And it's been just just terrific and you look at what that guy did. And just the the boldness of him like this movie. Basically I made a comic book of what the movie is Doesn't really have a script. Something's GonNa Happen. Act Like you're looking at flames over here. Also these guys were pulls spicy cars. Oh and by the way toe cutter from the I max movie. He's back but now but now he's a man with some kind of problem and bottlecaps showing up for that or be like Zoe Kravitz. Okay firefighter so much that saw it and then I just turn back around and went into the theater and saw it again like I really loved it. I had the same experience.

I'd like I'd really into a custom windbreaker with Benjamin Harrison on it and I asked credited as Benjamin Harrison busiest appear to live. Yeah he was married. And that's it off but I have two things that I think are facts that I know about him. One of which is that he was twenty third. President actually three six three six. He was twenty two president Clinton and his family and he was called the pious moonlight dude when he went courting. And that's it that property investor protection. Okay that's GonNa Benjamin Harrison fact but yeah. I didn't know any of those things. So that's the log line. Now he's different from William Henry Harrison.

"This is kingpins. Apar- cast original. I'm Alistair and I'm kate every day in May we're featuring a quote by an iconic crime figure teaching us in their own words what it takes to survive in the underworld today. We're taking a look at a quotes from Benjamin Lefty Ruggiero. Ruggiero was a notorious thug and is thought to have murdered twenty six people during his thirty years working for the New York via with reputation as a loyal soldier for the banana family. It's hardly shocking. That he wants said a little violence never heard anyone. This catchy Zinger is attributed to reject Rogelio in the memoirs of former FBI agent. Joseph pistone. Who spent time in deep cover with the mafia hosing as a jewel thief named Donnie Brasco? Pistone had convinced Ribero to bring him into the banana crime family. Soon after they met in the early nineteen seventy s. Ruggieri's relationship with the man he knew as Donnie BRASCO began to blur the lines. Between professional and personal to lefty Rasco was a close friend. And protege someone. He could pass on his wealth of racketeering experience to Roscoe run the bookmaking business and he often dined at rose home with his family. In the Mafia the divide between friend and colleague is inherently muddy to bring a new member into the family is to vouch for them by opening the door to the banana organization. Lefty had staked his life on brass goes loyalty. Which means that if things went sideways both of their lives would be forfeit. A career spent dealing in these life and death. Absolutes may have walked reg- aero's comprehension of violence to him. Aggression was a form of currency something to be bonded and sold and as a racketeer. Bloodshed was a key part of the business model without the threat of violence. His Marx would have less incentive to open their wallets. Of course those threats had to have true weight behind them which is where. Aero's reputation came into play during his criminal career. He murdered twenty-six people either to serve his own interests or those of the people paying him when the occasion called for it he reached for his two pistols one for each hand. Earning him his other nickname to guns. According to pistone regierung may have had a reputation as a killer but in his everyday life he didn't often resort to violence to him. It seemed bloodshed was a business transaction. And if that upset You well. That wasn't his problem. What was his problem was Donnie BRASCO agent? Stones initial assignment was a six month. Sting to gather information about truck hijacking but eventually it grew into almost five years of working undercover gathering Intel on Jero and his associates in the banana family when his superiors finally ordered an end to the operation. In July of Nineteen eighty-one they visited the head of the crew. Sonny black in person to tell him the truth about brass goes identity for the mistake of allowing an FBI agent to infiltrate the Mafia sonny black was murdered and had his hands cut off by his fellow mobsters. It was a fate that was meant to await lefty Jero as well but he was arrested and held in custody by the FBI for his own protection and for the protection of their undercover agent at reject rose trial prosecutors revealed that he had made a concerted effort to find and kill agent pistone wants his betrayal was revealed but he never got the chance. The evidence pistone had collected led to over one hundred convictions including Gyros ironically for a man whose business was governed by murder kindness to someone. He took a friend had been his undoing in the end regierung might not have seen the in little violence but he certainly felt the painful sting of betrayal..
