In my own opinion, I think it's another unjust made up thing like the impeachment hoaxes. CBS Jeff Bezos. There are these allegations that classified information. The government's top top secret information went missing from The White House and the allegation is that the former president took that information with him when he left The White House. And that is unusual. Well, this morning at The White House, President Biden signed the $280 billion bill that looks to jump start computer chip and other high-tech manufacturing. From quantum computing to artificial intelligence to advanced biotechnology, kinds of investments that will deliver vaccines for cancer cures for HIV, invent the next big things that hadn't even been imagined yet.

The Latest Attacks on Elon Musk

"There's been a spate of recent attacks on Elon Musk. The most recent of which, here's the outline in the telegraph. Whether it's with one of his executives or an eccentric pop star, the Tesla founder has been busy creating a cadre of progeny. So apparently they've counted that he apparently has some ten children from several mothers. And they're going to talk about who all these mothers are. Now, what's interesting is that this kind of article you don't see on George Soros. You never see on Warren Buffett. You never see on Jeff Bezos. And now you might say, well, Warren Buffett is too straight laced. Well, maybe. But there are plenty of plenty of billionaires who would fall into this category, and yet they get lionizing treatment from the left. Until a singular event which puts them on the target screen and then the relentless attacks begin. Talk about what this singular event is. This singular event has becoming a Republican. Yes. For sure. Well, in a way, the person who sort of demonstrates the genre better than anyone else is, of course, Trump is from Trump Lion eyes, Trump was a cultural celebrity. He was cool. Rappers loved him. Everybody wanted to take photos with Trump. Oh, yes. He was at the boxing match. He was at the world of yes. Trump was cool. He was very cool and nobody and nobody talked about his ex-wives or anything like that about his personal life. Until he decided. In fact, not only do they not do that, but they glamorized it. If you look at Vanity Fair profiles of Trump and I'm sure Elon Musk won the left, this article. Would have made it used to think he was. And that's why he was kind of cool. The Tesla founder was kind of cool. The electric car. Oh yeah. Technology. The Silicon Valley connection, the self made, these from South Africa. I used the richest man in the world. Yeah. And it was a big deal. He was a really big deal. And again, I mean, what is the common denominator? They became, well, they not only did they become Republicans, but they denounced the Democratic

Elon Musk Exposes the Left

"Elon Musk is the richest man in the world, I believe, at least he's rich man in America by far. Him and Jeff Bezos are very, you know, wealthy individuals. But Elon Musk, you know, people perceive him as a leftist. Before you ever became incredibly popular the way he is today, they perceived him to be a leftist and they perceived that he was on their side. And now that he's come out and exposed a lot of things that needed to be exposed within Twitter, he said he's going to buy Twitter for transparency and the freedom of speech. And now he's coming out saying that the Democrats are losing their way in this country. Now I know a lot of people like to say 'cause it sounds cute that the Democrat party didn't leave me, you know, I didn't leave the Democratic Party. They left me. I'm in the middle and the Democrat party moves, not it's not true. You were left and you moved a little bit further right and they moved further left.

Devin Nunes Is Now the CEO of the Trump Media and Technology Group

"The left, the oligarchs of Palo Alto of tech valley said. Well, if you don't like Twitter, if you don't like Facebook, go and build something else. Well, guess what? President Trump, my former boss, your current boss said, okay, it is truth social my account is blowing up. I've got two, 3000 new followers every day at said go cron truth social super excited. If you look at engagement numbers, it's completely incomparable to Twitter. Let's talk about this sector that you're in charge of now for the Trump media and technology group. And the deal, it looks like somebody's going to try and clean up Twitter if he can, but now that we found out this deal from Elon Musk is stalled because of the question of fake accounts and bought accounts and that incredible news that seems to have sunk without a trace Devon last week, an independent corporation found that out of the 22 million followers on Biden's Twitter account half of them 11 million were bots. How is that possible? Well, look, it's kind of what I've been saying. And you know, I kind of walked into this, you know, I wrote about I wrote about this in my book countdown to socialism that I think we've talked about many times on your show. You were back in. I wrote the book and it was finished in July of 2020. And I was talking then in that book, essentially how you've got the fake news and then it funnels down into these social media tech tyrants and it's poisoning the American public. And that we were essentially, we had no ability to communicate. And at that point, I was one of the first members of Congress I was the first to go to go to rumble, which is a YouTube alternative. I also went to parler at the time before Bezos and the tech tyrants shut them down. So I watched what happened with just my engagement early on where I just, you know, boom, boom, boom, boom boom, just kept climbing and followers. So when president Trump, he didn't need a new company. I didn't need a new job. I was perfectly happy. Being in the Congress representing my constituents in California, but because of my knowledge of this and my concern for the American people, you know, I really had no option when Donald Trump asked me to do this job

How Bad Can Biden's Economy Get? Stephen Moore Explains

"Stephen, let me just continue on that note. Are you seeing because as a famous economist once said to me, economics is the science of demonstrating that water runs downhill. It's not, you know, it's not voodoo. It's not a dark art. It's common sense, right? It's just common sense. Is there anybody you're hearing on the other side of the aisle to think tank or in the quote unquote political elite who's saying, yeah, this is nuts. We can't print more money, send money to the Ukraine, the punish the wealth generators in America because I don't see it. Are you seeing it? No, you don't well, you don't see it among any of the Democrats in Congress who are just very dutifully voting for every Obama initiative. You know, we have a race I met with JD Vance this morning. You know, he's running against Tim Ryan from Ohio. This is an example of what you're talking about. And Tim Ryan is going around the state of Iowa saying, I'm a moderate Democrat. I'm a middle pro worker, a Democrat. And JD said, well, that's interesting because you voted a 100% with Joe Biden. How are you a moderate Democrat? All these guys, they voted in a 100% with Biden on everything. So there's no voices of sanity and Congress except for Joe Manchin who saved our country. Thank you, Joe Manchin. You really did say, by the way, I'm sorry to go up on a tangent here. Go ahead, go ahead. Yep, Bezos said, hey, the guy who really saved you was Joe Manchin. You know, you wanted to spend another $5 trillion because Biden's running around the country now saying he reduced the deficit. Can you believe this? You can't make this stuff up. He's about three $4 trillion they say. Fiscal conservative. And then, of course, here's the bigger problem, though, and I shouldn't be laughing because this is a very serious matter. There's nobody in The White House. There's no sane voice in The White House who was saying, hey, you know, you can't do this. You have to, there's no adult in the room. There's nobody who knows anything about business.

Hi, Sebastian, great to be with you. And if you're hoping that I can explain that answer from our new press secretary, I have a brain I can not. I couldn't make heads or tails. Why don't she was saying, it was actually kind of awkward, and I felt a little bit sorry for her, actually. You know, she was kind of partially reading from the notes and just reading a script, even though it had nothing to do with what the question was about. But look, all of this, all of these policies, I'm an 8 from Joe Biden. She's just a mouthpiece spitting out that the sound bites that The White House has been putting out. But I think what's really more important than those crazy statements that were made in that press conference was, you know, you have somebody now, you know, who's the Jeff Bezos who runs one of the largest companies in the world who is a Liberal Democrat Sebastian, who's saying, wait a minute, none of this stuff is going to

The Left Is So Upset With Elon Musk

"The left is really upset with Elon Musk. Why are they upset with Elon Musk? Because he won't listen. He won't heal. He won't do what they need him to do. You know, when I have Briggs and I want to bring him right up to me, there's a German command called foos, which means get beside me and cut it out. You know, any dog owner Victor marks, you see with a dog. Get over here. Cut it out. It's actually another German word phooey. He's knock it off. It's very direct. That's how the left treats their own. And they've been saying to Elon Musk the last couple of weeks, foos, foos, get beside me, come to heal, and Elon's like, no. I'm not going to. Now the latest tabulations of where his net worth is, they kind of re tabulated every single day. It's about $221 billion today. He certainly has the net worth still to be able to purchase Twitter. We don't even know how valuable SpaceX is. SpaceX is probably way more valuable than anything they publicly disclose. Elon's going to be just fine. For those of you that are like, wow, Tesla stock is really down. I don't think he's going to have to take out a second mortgage anytime soon. However, it does dampen his potential purchasing power. But the left hates Elon because he will not be totally and completely blindly obedient to everything they tell him to do. You see, the way it's supposed to work. And by the way, Jeff Bezos is getting a little Elon Musk energy recently. I'm not a fan of Bezos, but Bezos is like angrily tweeting towards Biden too. He's like, hey, we as elites, we could think towards ourselves like, okay, Jeff Bezos, we'll see how long that lasts. We'll see if you keep on getting your Pentagon contracts. And Jeff Bezos will heal. Trust me. You want to talk about a guy who is all bark and no bite, that's Bezos. Elon Musk, he just might be wild and eccentric enough actually to challenge the regime.

Bezos Calls Out Biden President Over Inflation and Corporate Taxes

"You think about Jeff Bezos being much more sort of in step with the liberal left given that he owns and runs up well he owns Washington Post. Anyway, he's out there. He's stepping up his criticism of the Biden administration on Twitter. This is pretty good. He's going to new one out. I'm going to share with you, but what I loved was what he put out on Friday as we went into the weekend. This thing was epic. Epic. On Friday. Jeff Bezos called President Biden over a tweet in which Biden said that taxing wealthy corporations could actually help lower inflation. Okay, that's just wrong, right? It's just wrong because think about it for two seconds. If you tax corporations more, they still need to deliver to their shareholders, therefore they're just going to raise prices even more. So that actually really doesn't make any sense. He said, and I quote, you want to bring down inflation, let's make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share. This was on May 13th. And Bezos then retweeted it with some info of his own urging, well, sort of urging the disinformation board to review that one, right? He said quote, raising corporate taxes is fine to discuss. Taming inflation is critical discuss. Mushing them together is just misdirection. In other words, where's the government disinformation board that ministry of truth as we like to call it? Where are they when you need it? Oh, wait a second. They can't actually help in this case because you see the government itself. Is the source of the misinformation?

"Let me turn to Jeff Bezos because I would just say that this is once again emblematic emblematic of the hypocrisy that you so often see on the left. Jeff Bezos might, in fact, even be kind of more of a hypocrite than anyone thought. I mean, this is pretty wild. He's out there super liberal, runs in The Washington Post, or owns it, I should say. And he is in hot water now because he's not okay with unions. His company, Amazon, has just been caught firing employees that were responsible for creating a union in one of his biggest shops. Think about that. I mean, it's kind of amazing, right? Amazon gets rid of these guys because, well, one would have to assume they're saying it's job performance, but one would have to question why they got rid of them in a time like this when these were the guys that were responsible. Of course, for the creation of a union in their shop. Company doesn't want a union, and while look, I get it, and I can understand why management maybe doesn't want one, the reality is this. You know what? You can't do that. Jeff Bezos. She can't do that, Amazon. You can't fire people for trying to start a union at your company. And yet, well, we don't know. I suppose this will go to a much higher level, but it doesn't seem good. The employees themselves say they were fired for organizing the shop that resulted in the company's first unionized warehouse in the United States.

I'm not even going to mention the author that wrote it, right Connor, we don't have to give him any more. He wrote a good book. He did. It was called liberal fascism. And it's true.

I know it sounds redundant, but they don't like rich people that don't like them and vice versa, meaning there are certain rich people that are perfectly fine with. Bezos, fine, Gates, fine, Musk, they now hate. One of the reasons why they hate Musk so much is because Musk was never, he never commented on this stuff before. He just kind of built his businesses for years quietly. And he kind of was friends with all people, but he always had that kind of that Iron Man Tony Stark vibe, but the reason they really hate Musk is that they believe they're entitled to Musk's loyalty.

How Should Conservatives View Elon Musk? Pedro Gonzalez Explains

"How should we think about the Elon thing as American conservatives, right? So, I mean, I have a nuanced view of him as a person. I don't really appreciate his China production or his Neuralink stuff. But I certainly love the fact that he's willing to use resources. A lot of them to do something what seems to be admirable. How should we think about this? Yeah. No, that's exactly right. I think it's important that we don't just become Musk cheerleaders and pretend that he's now based in right wing. I honestly know very little about his political views. I think he's an interesting person, but here's what we know for sure, right? The reaction from the incumbent elites, the people who own most of the media, and most social media platforms already was almost entirely negative. Toward the idea of Elon Musk resting control of a key institution. And Twitter is, I mean, the people that work yesterday is saying, Twitter is a private company. Therefore, if Twitter wants to ban the president of the United States, they can do that. And now that Musk is taken over, it's like, well, hold on, it's not a private company. You know, suddenly it's actually correct when they say that. Twitter is because of the sheer size, it has, because of the sheer size and the control that it has of information, it is actually correct to say Twitter is not just a company. It is in its own way, a kind of public institution at this point, just because of the size of it, right? And I think that the fact that Musk taking control of Twitter seemed to enrage all of these other elites, you know, you've got the former CEO of Reddit, writing an article in The Washington Post, which is owned by a billionaire Jeff Bezos, saying, you know, we need more regulations to prevent rich people from owning the means of communication. That should tell you that these people are afraid of losing control over a tool that allows them to control information the way Twitter

Elon Musk: A Good Sign of Free Speech Is Allowing Someone to Disagree

"Why is it that a Saudi prince Vanguard and all of the really angry unhappy people on television are going from not caring at all about Elon to a straight ten out of ten to try to prevent him from buying Twitter and turning it into a free speech platform. Well, this is why. Cut 89 Elon Musk explains this. Listen to it yourself. And a good sign as to whether there is free speech is someone you don't like allowed to say something you don't like. And if that is the case, then we have free speech. And it's damn annoying when someone you don't like says something you don't like. That is a sign of a healthy functioning free speech situation. And we don't have that right now. Donald Trump is not on Twitter. I'm not on Twitter. People have tried for years to get me off Twitter. And we've been suspended. Donald Trump has been banned. So here's how it works. Jeff Bezos can buy The Washington Post, Elaine pal jobs is able to run the Atlantic, Bill Gates can dictate global health policy, but Elon can't buy Twitter. It's because Twitter really has become a place where the most consequential ideas and mostly journalists get their stories and it's the top of the tributary. It's the beginning of the downstream effect. Is that if you are able to have a free and open Twitter, it will then open and liberate the conversations in op eds, it'll open and liberate the conversation in newspapers, Tucker Carlson, beautifully put it.

"Treat their country? How should the people in charge of their country and the economic elites or in cultural institutions or in the movies or in any form of power? How should they treat their country? Well, a hundred years ago, Carnegie Mellon and chase, they were some of the wealthiest people ever in the history of the planet. Now there is no doubt that they were powerful and that they had wealth, but they used that wealth largely to try and preserve America, build hospitals, libraries, build YMCAs, build things that actually helped the well-being of the nation. They wanted a strong America. Now, over the last couple of years, a common lament from this program has been the fact that the people who are in charge of our country, the wealthiest people, are involved in this pattern of self hatred. They're engaged in this relentless pattern of not doing what's best for the country of engaging in ideas for the World Economic Forum, the suppression of free speech, woke ideology, the suffocation of the individual, we have talked about how people like Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos and George Soros and the Google people and the Louis Vuitton guy.

I don't know what the proper pronunciation is, but whatever we call him, one thing's for sure is one of the greatest entrepreneurs ever. Of all time. And I think anybody would have a tough argument to combat that statement. Just look at his track record. He's taking a company from being online bookstore to being the juggernaut that it is today. And that's not an accident. It happens because the person who created the company is a genius and has done so many things well. And so today, we're going to talk about his success formula. And so I know we have a few different topics that we want to explore. And we will get into the story going back in time, getting the full version of what happened why he started it as an online bookstore and how it evolved over time and what the reasons are that have helped Amazon be the success that it is, but let's start with something called the regret minimization framework. What is that? And why are we going to start there? Absolutely, you know, if I'm Jeff such a fascinating character and he's honestly someone, even if I know a lot about him, I still feel I need to sharpen up my knowledge. I need to learn more about the incredible mind that is Jeff Bezos or Bezos, whatever it may be. That's one of the things I need to master. But going to the regret manifestation framework. The most powerful thing Jeff has taught me personally is the decision on whether or not he should even do Amazon. So essentially what happened is when he was 29 or 30 years old, Billy, he was working at a company called DE Shaw. It's an investment training firm in New York City. And he was asking himself, should I start? And he was realized that the Internet from his math is math was actually wrong, but he thought the Internet was going by 2300% annually. The answer was actually 230,000% annually. It's pretty nuts. I was just reading that on a Wikipedia page. So what made them actually quit that job in pursuit Amazon? Because there's a lot of risk obviously. And the decision that was solely based pretty much on what he calls the regret minimization framework. So it goes something like this. He pictured himself 80 years old. At that age, on a rocking chair, thinking back at his life. And what he says is that life is not about experience saying as much as you can, but rather regretting the least amount of things as possible. And I thought that idea was super fascinating. So you just asked himself if I was 80 years old that I didn't pursue Amazon or try something. Would I regret it? And he said the answer was absolutely yes. Even if you failed, if you were to sat on that chair and said, you know what I tried? But if you never tried, you would have regretted it until his deathbed. So that's probably the most important lesson I learned from Jeff that I applied in my own life. Yeah, no, it makes perfect sense. And I think if we really boil it down when most people reflect on their life at the end, and you ask them what regrets do you have? They usually regret what they didn't.

"But you got like ninety like you barely like and even then the teachers like i kind of let one slide yet. You shouldn't have gotten credit for. That's low orbit. He's he he. He barely got there yet. So that's bazo doing the bare minimum. Also how long ago was it that he and his wife got divorced because this screams midlife crisis just got a divorce if you have two hundred billion dollars instead of getting a fucking convertible you you go to low orbit yep yeah In a dick rockett okay. And that's a really important thing to talk about. Is the way that that rocket looked. Did nobody cares about the appearance of it. Was that just like not a factor. Someone trying to fuck over jeff beza which i hope is the case bald man and a dick rocket is my favorite moby album. There's there's no way the engineers looked at that and didn't think. Wow that's a giant dick. No no possible way. It's got a mushroom tip. I mean it's not. It's not like a rocket as phallic shaped okay. Yeah but most aren't pointy like a fucking needle at the end. You know this. This one literally has a mushroom tip and two tiny little balls on either. Let the fuck. It's insane. I just want to know the story. I want to be in the meeting. Where they're like. Yeah looks cool. Looks masculine in a way right. Like very cool and masculine. I wonder if maybe jeff bezos knew. It looked like a dick the whole time. That was his intention and it was a test of loyalty where he was waiting to see. If anybody would mention that it looks like a dick and nobody did like finds out. He has no real friends in the world..

"Stephen you our guest go first. What's your recommendation on keeping with the theme. I want to recommend a book called wally. Funk's race for space nice written by A bbc journalists named soon nelson and she followed around while he funk for a few years. And you really get a sense of how being denied a place in as an astronaut in the early nineteen sixties. Put a hole in this woman's life and all her life she wanted to get up there which is why it was so great to see her finally breaking the karman line or whatever and you know being weightless and you know you go up there and it's kind of like a bounce house you know. They're all floating around and they threw skittles at each other and trying to catch it in their mouths and you know she her. Her was complaining. a little. There wasn't enough room to have dual the somersaults she wanted to do and so she wants to go up again but it was fantastic to see her finally accomplish her lifelong dream. And it's been a hell of a life for her awesome. That's awesome lauren. What's your recommendation. My recommendation is show on. Hbo max called hacks That's not ha like hbo. Max that's h. A. c. k. s. It premiered in may so all ten episodes are already available. And yes i've been watch it. It's about a legendary stand up. Comedian named deborah vance. She has just learned that her longstanding vegas show is being cut back and likely coming to an end and then her manager ends up connecting her with a much younger sarcastic writer from l. a. Who has had a hard time getting work. Because she's she made an offensive joke on twitter and she's been cancelled by her colleagues and so she doesn't really want to work with deborah van. She considers her kind of washed up. Deborah doesn't wanna work with her but they end up insulting each other so much. They developed this strange respect for each other. And so they decide to work together and Hilarity ensues and it's honestly it's laugh out loud funny I recommend you check it out and if anyone needs. Hbo log and let me know because hbo. Max is expensive. And i give it out. I give it out very freely people. So yes lauren. I want a second recommendation It's been a hell of year gene. Smart who is the lead in hawks. she also was in mayor of east town. Delco you know Outside of philadelphia And her performance is unbelievable. Yeah she's chef's kiss very good mike. What's your recommendation. I'm going to recommend gadget in. It's not a new gadget. it's kind of an old gadget. it's been around for about four years. i'm holding it in my hand. It is called the mighty vibe. It's it's a an audio player. It's about the size of an ipod. Shuffle looks like an eye pie square. Shuffle it's an ipod shuffle for spotify. Basically you pair it with an app on your phone and you sync it to your spotify account and then you download your spotify playlists onto this thing and then you clip it to your shirt and then you either use bluetooth headphones or old school plug in headphones and you can listen to your music wherever you go. So you know. It's like an ipod shuffle. But it's basically thanks to spotify It's something that i've wanted for really long time. It came out. And i never got one. There was one kicking around here the office and now that we're back in the office a couple of days a week I found it. And i was like oh i should try this out. it's especially cool if you are like a runner or if you do a lot of and stuff and you like to do that to get away from the internet and like go off grid because it's an offline device like it doesn't connect to spotify unless you're in your home with your phone parents of the device in your on wifi and then it sinks all the music and then you can take offline so when i go on runs. I clipped this to my my running shorts. And then i have music. And i don't need to bring my phone with me when i go out so It's one hundred ten dollars which is a lot and also. I should warn you that it is buggy so it takes a little bit of time to get it to work properly in may. Not connect to both headphones. You may have to try a couple of different pairs of headphones to get it to work but once you get working it's just set it. Forget it and you can just clip it and press the button and go So that's my recommendation the mighty vibe. I'm looking at it right now. Can i see it super cute. If you end your spotify subscription this is still work. I think it does as long as you don't like if think if you just delete the app and then all of the music stays on the device and you never sink it again. It'll it'll just continue to play. All the files reminds me of it reminds me of. I don't know if you remember that pebbled. I think just shortly before it was acquired developed. Something called the core. This is new york city and it was built for runners. It was a gps accessory for runners. I think a little bit larger maybe but similar. Yeah so yeah. The ipod shuffle. Still around even though You know they're just different now. All right. that is our show for this week. Everybody should go read stevens. Dispatches from the blue origin launch in van horn texas You can find those on. Dot com steven. Thank you for coming back on the show. Oh i really loved. Thank you for listening. If you had.

"Said well officially their astronauts as far as we're earned serious shade from the faa even before we take another break if you could name one other thing that jeff bezos could be doing with his billions is current network is over two hundred billion dollars to help save humanity or move forward. What would it be if it wasn't space travel so loaded question just curious. Sierra transfer might obviously there's there's like a hundred billion things he could do right. I mean this world is hurting. But when i asked him about this game three years ago and i should say three years ago I did this huge feature about jeff. I spent hours with him. He gave me a tour of the base of tour. The factory We went up to the mountain and looked at the ten thousand year clock. I went through his ranch. And i asked them that very thing. And he said look what way i can impact. The world is to do maybe with someone else's doing and no one with my resources can do this thing that i consider the most important thing for humanity which is to save civilization by helping us do the infrastructure that one day. We're going to have a chilean humans. Living in these space colonies and earth could be almost like a nature preserve People would come down visit it. Could i wrote one of my stories this week. Then if he gets his way instead of people saving their money for tickets to go to space. These people space colonies saving their money to visit. This magical place called earth had already is pretty magical but we need to treat a better well. I mean if it's getting when it's on fire and you could say well. Jeff has to devote his money to climate change. Doing the ten billion dollars climate change which is not nothing. but it's it's not like All the whole ball of wax. It's not like his ex wife who's furiously giving her money away but I have to say in his mind. He's doing the most econ for humanity he says is the most important thing you'll ever do. Well if you were going to invoke Jim morrison earlier than i feel. Compelled to invoke Another poet by the name of gil. Scott heron. i can't pay my doctor bill but white on the moon ten years from now i'll pay. It's still the white house on the moon. I can't argue with that. What he whitey was on a percent of the crew of new shepherd right all right. Well let's take a quick break and when we come back we'll do our recommendations.

"There was an interesting little controversy Particularly the veterans space reports are pretty upset about everyone thought that mark basis fifty three years old That's what i reported in my story But someone had some document that said he might not be fifty three might be fifty or something. Blue origin wouldn't confirm his age. So the space reporters who you know their whole life getting every detail right you know. They think the scribes of history so they were pretty upset. The blue origin wouldn't confirm that. I actually asked blue origin. And they said well you have to go to the public documents so i don't know whether they meant. We ought to dig up his birth certificate. Or what what will that was about. But mark Was called by jeff as the funniest person in space because he made a couple of jokes or something and and jeff. I guess knows them as the family. Wit and the veteran space reporter is again contested that and they cited a couple astronauts. They knew were funny. There's actually a podcast called too funny. Astronauts was approved. so they they. They didn't think the bar was funny. We told the funny story about going down in five gs which is the time that they made it sound check. They asked him if he was all right and he could hardly get the words out because he was at his maximum geez at that moment in the flow year. Okay so we have the marginally funny mark basis. Who's plenty guy but not the funniest person space. Okay and tell us about oliver all over eighteen years old. He's in his gap year between school. And the university of you trek. I'm sure that he will have a pretty good subject. Well you didn't do this to your gap year. Mike and a great subject right in freshman composition about what i did during my summer vacation and though i actually felt that in terms of inspiration you think eighteen year old. This is great. It did not cross the karman line of inspiration because his dad who started a hedge fund bought the seat in the auction or was one of the high under bidders in the auction and this is weird the high bidder in the auction spent twenty million dollars and then bowed out because of scheduling conflicts. So most of us would check the schedule. Check the calendar before we bid twenty eight million dollars the go. You know for a seat somewhere right. I think there's backstory there. We haven't heard so they went to the list of the bidders who spent millions of dollars but less than twenty eight and pick oliver probably because the book in wally so we have the youngest and the oldest and he seemed like a nice young guy and he was obviously thrilled to be on space. He said it's been his lifelong ambition. His life was nowhere near as long as well. He funk's yes since the early two thousands so stephen There was some dispute about whether or not these four quote unquote astronauts actually went into space. This week Could you tell us about that. Yeah there's a big controversy about whether sub orbital flight even qualified people to say. I've been into space and there's sort of a dispute about how you can even say i've been space with a height you have to attain is the faa says that It's fifty miles fifty fifty miles and you you qualify as being space and that's how high the version galactic spaceship went Now the blue origin takes you up. Just pass what's called the karman line which was a hundred kilometers. Sixty two miles. And they say that the virgin So-called astronauts They are really in space their space with an asterisk because they don't cross the karman line I think it was kind of funny because And of course looking up stuff about all this. Alan shepherd who went to space sixty years ago on the first american spaceflight sub flight. He went one hundred sixteen miles right. So neither of these folks attained what was done sixty years ago so i find it odd that they're arguing about it Stephen i'm getting. We're getting the note from our producer that we're getting close to ten minutes for this segment but that actually brings me to my next question. Which is the long enough to go into space. We can be there and back already. Wh why was this flay. Only ten minutes told us about like. Is that the standard amount of time for these kinds of flights. Well it's a sub orbital flight right so there's two kinds of spaceflights generally There's the orbital flight we just kind of like one of those Air rockets the you pump a lot of water into and then let go. It's like a big version of that. It goes up and it goes down and you're up on the space for four minutes like older. The qube of space travel is and. It's it's great. If you're like a rich person you don't want to take too much time off. You go straight up straight down and it's actually much much easier to do that. Suborbital jaunt then in orbit because you need Go four times as fast to break the earth's atmosphere and get up there on a course go into orbit which means you need sixteen times more energy because there's some equation in math. Jeff bezos can explain it to you so It's a much bigger investment in a much bigger rocket to get up there And blue origin starting with little suborbital flights. All right well we're going to take a break and then when we come back we'll talk a little bit more about the billionaire space race with an emphasis on the billionaire. Part capital be modern leaders. It's not just their ability to reason we value or their eloquence. What truly matters is their humanity.

"How much would you pay to go into space. I would pay one hundred nineteen dollars per year. that's it. I pay the exact amount that amazon prime costs. Because according to jeff bezos my purchases helped send him to space and so he can subsidize my trip to space I don't think that's gonna fly. Pardon the pun. Hi everyone welcome gadget lab. I'm michael calorie senior editor here wired and i'm laurin good. I'm a senior writer at wired. And we're also joined by wired editor at large steven levy. Hello steven welcome back to the show. How michael and lauren and a always delighted to be on the show. And we're delighted to have you of course because today we are talking about space and jeff bezos as you probably heard the former amazon. Ceo and richest person in the world flew into space this week. His blue origin rocket carried him and his three best. He's out of the atmosphere where they floated around for a few minutes before safely landing back on earth. The event wasn't just about bezos also aboard the rocket were the oldest and youngest people ever to go into space eighty two year old former pilot wally funk and an eighteen year old pain customer who seat on the rocket cost many many millions of dollars the blue origin flight this week and the virgin galactic flight last week were significant steps for the commercial space industry and stephen. You've been following bases astronautical ambitions for years and you are in texas this week to see the blue origin launch therefore delightful stories about the event written by you on wired right now that people can read. So let's start with the big question. Why does jeff bezos want to go into space so badly. What's in it for him and part of me. I think you mean jeff. Space house well as interesting. There's actually two answers to that question. One is actually two parts of the question of employed one is why is he spending money. Space company and the second has wide as he want to go to space The company is because he's got this grand vision that human beings are by lord's going to live in space colonies not on planet earth. And this is something that he became a number of by reading the works of a gerald. O'neil who is a futurist through postulated. This and jeff is a high school. Student gave his valedictory speech graduation about this and has been passionate about this pursuing it ever since so. That's the grand goal and everything. The blue origin does is going to step by step ferociously which is its motto Move that plan closer into being now. Why he wants to go into space is because he's like a space nerdy once the adventure of it and he built his own company to take him into space and He actually skipped a couple steps in the step by step process by moving up his chance to go to space They never tested human flight before this. They did fifteen flights without humans and he wanted to be on board the very first one and take his best is brother with him along with the oldest and youngest people so it was kind of a spectacle which broke character for blue origin. Which have been trying to do things. Very very deliberately before that Let's quickly talk about the four passengers on the flight. I think we have to start with wally funk. Yes she she's unbelievable Eighty two years old and she was part of the mercury thirteen which in nineteen sixty. Someone got funding to train a group of thirteen women in the same way that the astronauts of the mercury seven. Who would go into space. They were officially nassir astronauts. They would be tested and trained and wally Her name is mary wallace spunk. Everyone calls her wally Did the test so well. She the standards of almost all the mercury seven astronauts but nasa Denied mercury thirteen. They actually had a congressional hearing and scott carpenter and john land. The astronauts testified that this isn't the place for women space. You really can't have women there. Places to support astronauts not the be astronauts and not a rejected the whole idea of women in space for many years and by the time they did accept women they had all these requirements that wall. We didn't qualify for like an engineering degree. Were military experience so even though she was a trained pilot and trained other pilots and Passed all the tests. She never got the fly in space she became with it and she signed up in two thousand ten for richard branson's program which for two hundred thousand dollars could give her a seat in the virgin galactic spaceship Jeff bezos in a very canny. Move newell this and plucked her out of the waiting list for richard branson and put her to the top of the list for blue origin and eighty two year old. Wally was on board raring to go. She's unbelievable she's a real sparkplug and her only complaint. Was you know well. There's not enough room. I couldn't see the whole earth and get me back up there again. You might say that. She got the the prime delivery treatment right expedited shipping very careful not to make amazon puns. Very good and stephen. Did you have the opportunity to talk to wally. When you were in van horn they were very salvi The only gave interviews to broadcast folks and while we herself. They're a little nervous about her. Because she's a predictable. So early interviews were in a group of four where exposure will be limited. Well i am super happy for mary. Wallace funk aka wally Let's talk about the other folks who were in the rocket with jeff bezos. There was also oliver damon. Who's the youngest person to ever go into space and then mark bezos jeff businesses brother. How did they end up on the shortlist. Well mark basis. I think i had a family connection. Yeah jeff describes him as my best friend. I know mark a little. You know we hang out at ted super nice guy and jump. As was his brother so that was his ticket on..

"I'd much rather have jeff bezos pouring money into adventure like that then running the washington post or you know running around trying to run for public office as a self funded billionaire or supporting other bad candidates for office which is what so many billionaires tend to spend their time doing these days So yeah you wanna take a new frontier and really stretch the limits and propel us to the front of the world in terms of our tech savvy. I think it's awesome. We should be really thrilled. That it's american business. Doing this seems to be. There are certainly worse hobbies that you can have as a billionaire At one last here is that Remember the space shuttle was retired in twenty eleven and until last year. That meant that. In order to get nasa astronauts to the international space station the us was essentially renting seats on russian spacecraft. And in order to do that. The united states paid russia attorney billions of dollars Over a decade and what changed was the spacex launch. Last year it was incredible to watch this private company taking these nasa astronauts to the international space station for the first time and Now lisa instead of having all of our eggs in that basket we have a little bit of a competition i mean. Blue origin is not to orbit yet But they're talking about that with their next their next rocket which might launch next year and then we have a. We have a real competition going on. I think that's we don't really know where all his innovation is going to lead on new ventures actually interestingly oatmeal space acts I think ams our business has an option one web in no virgin does too on doing commercial satellites than to connect broadband. We don't know how these expirations discoveries What people learn from these new missions What kind of future. Future discoveries thinker purdue's but i think everyone all americans benefit.

"If we've been through this just what you can do the price for a trip aboard. These flights is steep now but companies like these along with others. Like spacex are hoping to kickstart a viable space tourism industry in the future with us to talk about the possible future of space tourism is not a drake science reporter and contributing writer for national geographic. Nadia welcome back. Hi thank you for having me. Also with us chris hadfield. he's a former astronaut. And the first canadian to perform a spacewalk. He's also an advisor to space x and virgin galactic and the author of the forthcoming fiction book. The apollo murders out later this year chris. Thanks for coming on the show today hygiene. It's a real pleasure to be talking to you so now you talk us through. Jeff bezos is flight. What happened sure. so Jeff bezos and three other crewmembers made the first crude flight aboard blue origin. New shepard rocket and it was actually a sub orbital flight so they didn't make all the way into orbit but as you said they went to the edge of space and the flight took about ten minutes a little more than ten minutes. They went up to about three hundred and fifty thousand feet. They got to look out the windows and see the curvature of the earth and the darkened sky above and they got to experience between three and four minutes of weightlessness. Which sounds like a total thrill. Ride and then the capsule parachuted back. Down to texas now. What are the main differences between the bezos flight. Richard branson's one of the big differences. Is the flight systems involved. so bezos. Today we saw him launch on an actual rocket with a space capsule that separated from the rocket when it got to about two hundred fifty thousand feet up. Virgin galactic is also offering commercial sub orbital spaceflights. But they have a different system. And so there you see a big plane that launches and it's actually it takes off like an airplane. It has the spaceship attached. And when it gets to high enough altitude it drops that spaceship and which then rockets up into well to the edge of space. So it's actually completely different flight system chris. What are some of the differences in companies and their goals. And we're talking about blue origin in a virgin galactic. Nadia mentioned it. They're both obviously rides for tourists right now. But i mean there's a huge market for that right around the world. It's very expensive right now. Because it's still very early for the technology. But it was proven by richard branson jeff basil's so so that's the start of it but if you look at the follow on capability which your question refers to the vehicle that virgin galactic has it can't ever orbit the world it can't handle the energy. It doesn't extrapolate to ever taking people into orbit all the way around the world so so it's kind of a specific target market whereas what Blue origin jeff bezos company has been working on for the last twenty years it scales. You just put a bigger rocket and a more capable capsule and those people on board can orbit the world and it scales to the point and this is the long-term objective of the company it scales to the point that it can take people to the moon and actually land on the moon eventually so so that that's steppingstone approach is kind of the fundamental split between the two companies can do now. The blue origin flight breaks records for the oldest and youngest crew members in space. Chris who are some of the other people on these flights while wally funk who i was i was talking to her a couple of days ago. She's a wonderful person but also kind of a door opener her whole life she. She been a pilot. She's been an instructor. She have many thousands of hours. She did some basic astronaut testing back in the sixties. That showed that the you know the female human body can do space law just as well as a male human body. And that's been proven over the years. I mean the most experienced astronaut in american history is a woman and she's eighty eighty two peggy whitson but yeah the other part. Now she's eighty two of course and so if you're a protest perspective customer Flying in space. She's a pretty nice example. That an eighty two year old can do it and then also you know we have all damon who's eighteen. The previous record was twenty five. Gehrmann tito a cosmonaut flew and here's someone at eighteen so it opens up a lot wider age than we've ever seen before and i think maybe that might sort of. It's still early but that might tickle the imagination of people that use to think. There's there's i'm just too old. Too young chris spacex is planning a flight with a civilian crew in september. What we know about that. Lots that vehicle is proven. It's already flown professional astronauts to the space station in back that specific capsule the those four people are going to fly a used capsule an orbit the world for like three days so fifty times around the world and what's what's amazing is on that launch in the middle of september there will be no professional astronauts on board just four people one of them's a pilot. You know sort of like wally funk today but but that's their profession is not being an astronaut. They only got together a few months ago but our technology is good enough now that someone could buy a ticket bring along three of their friends an orbit the world for three days. It's you know it's obviously still very expensive. Because it's still brand new just like a lot of early aviation technology. Whatever but it's an important first step in his shows an amazing transition over just this summer from it not existing two now. Three different systems that can take paying passengers to space. We'll chris branson and bezos flights were short and only had a few minutes of weightlessness. Wh what's actually happening on these flights. What does it feel like for the people on these rockets. Yeah i'm curious to what the two of you were just discussing as well do. They have the right long-term financial model. My guess is no but none of the early airlines did either. I think the whole the airline that survived from the twenty s. Klm there the rest of them all went broke they. They pushed the technology. They opened up a whole new capability but there was a lot of evolution necessary. What they experienced today and nine days ago on the virgin galactic vehicle was a lot of build up with which is really important. You don't just suddenly show up at disneyland in iraq the top you know the the buildup in the human anticipation you know. That's an important part of doing something magnificent in your life. And then the rocket right both of them count on a rocket to get them out of the earth's atmosphere One of them starts just on the pad in west texas. The other one gets lifted up to almost fifty thousand feet in a carrier but then the rocket lights the nose points at the sky and you are getting hurled vertically and that's that's a really heavy vibration heavy force thing but then the second the engine shuts off you're weightless in space and the view out the window whether you know depending which you're looking through is like nothing you've ever seen and you could say. Oh well i've seen pictures of movies but everybody knows a looking at a sunset or standing on the edge of the grand canyon or inside the steam chapel. It's personal if you don't experience it yourself that you're just getting an echo. What it truly is. And i know i've been around the world two thousand six hundred times so for the first time those essential tourists because they're not operating vehicle are seeing something that almost no one on earth has ever seen before and and so that's different and they're weightless they under their seat belt and not only. Are they getting this. Amazing many thousand mile view with the curvature of the earth and the blackness of space and the thinness of the atmosphere but they're also weightless which is so much fun. You know that's like a superpower and its short sure but but a lot of good things in life comes small packages. I and i.

"In the commercial space race. Virgin galactic spacex and blue origin founded by. Jeff bezos and blue origin is focused on rocketry rocket engines building. Sort of these rockets that can get into suborbital. Space like tomorrow's fight and eventually beyond version clock was founded by richard branson. Virgin galactic has really focused on space tourism. That's largely the kind of end market. They'll serve and finally there's elon musk's company spacex blue origin. Space spacex are more similar to each other many ways. Space x is also focused on rocketry reusable rockets taking people to space on tourist trips on those rockets but also serving government and commercial customers on them as well. So that's the kind of like trio. That's really kind of jumped out ahead of the pack. Blue origin may not be the most well known of the three space companies. But it's actually the oldest bezos founded the company in two thousand and. He's talked publicly about having big ambitions. I want to move out into the sewer system. I want my grandchildren's grandchildren to be in that world. And when you hear him give speeches about space in about the jen. He often talks about like this. Really broad vision not just for flu urgent. But for humanity. Sort of writ large. I mean he really believes if you listen to speeches that humans need to set up outposts across the solar system to continue to be able to grow and rival expand and he says look we humans we can have an incredible civilization with trillions of people in the solar system. Like that that's the future for humanity. If we're out in the source system we can have a trillion humans in the source system. Which means we'd have a thousand mozart's thousand einstein's this would be an incredible civilization but before trillions of humans can populate the solar system space companies need to figure out sustainable business models. Blue origin is primarily eyeing to opportunities. The first is winning government contracts from places like nasa and the defense department the second is space tourism in may the company announced. It was ready to take a big step space tourism business. Here's planning to take people to space for the first time on board. The flight would be the company's founder bezos himself along with legendary aviator wally funk and bezos brother mark blue origin published a video. Bazo asking me his brother to join the trip watching to come listening would you. Are you serious. I think it would be meaningful brother. They're willing if you want to. The flight would also represent another i. It would be carrying a paying customer. An eighteen year old student named oliver damon but just weeks before blue origin's launch weeks before bezos himself was set to go to space for the first time. Another billionaire. space junkie. Beat him to the punch on july. Eleventh richard branson founder. Virgin galactic took his first trip to space. He and five of the company's employees traveled more than fifty miles above earth. God on their ship. V s unity. Unbelievable his to unbelievable. Michael watched virgin galactic flight from near the launch site in new mexico. You're watching the sky and you sort of see the space craft like detach from the plane and you see this little like flair. That's the rocket and the the spacecraft just like jets up surges up into space from there and eventually the plane and the spaceship sort of circle back down inland. Everybody along the get virgin galactic. Said it didn't mean to steal blue origin thunder by launching. First they were just ready to go and so they did but blue origin didn't seem thrilled when the news broke about. Brandt going up ahead of bluer jen. I reached out to to blue origin to see if that comment and basically all they said to me. Was you know we go higher. We go higher. Go higher and outerspace pretty much virgin galactic flies about fifty miles above the earth which at least one. Us government agency considers the point where space begins but blue origin goes twelve miles higher to something called karman line and internationally recognized boundary of space. It's almost like blue origin. Was sort of saying like our experience is a little bit more authentic. Now if you talk to experts who focus on space and think about space like the difference. The mileage the altitude that each company gets their passengers to is is nil. Like the experience of the passenger. When you're that high it's still sub-orbital played and then there were the tweets on the friday before virgin galactic flight with richard branson the blue origin twitter account published this sort of graphic compared and contrasted. What it said virgin galactic offered and what we origin offered you know. They compared the size of the windows. How high you go. These are some of the advantages of going. you know. it's based on blue origin. The tweets doing launches at all shows. How blue origin and virgin galactic or trying to win over future customers. They're both vying for a piece of the space tourism pie. Virgin galactic is said. It's sold about six hundred reservations. Its flights at a price as high as two hundred fifty thousand dollars each but space tourism is a brand new industry. And it's not clear how much demand they'll be for these kinds of pricey adventures that lack of certainty around space tourism is one reason. Bezos.

"I think it says that he's anxious to prove that it is a successful and reliable Spacecraft it has gone through fifteen tests in autonomous mode. And that's how this space craft is designed to fly. There is not technically a pilot sitting at the controls. Inside that spacecraft that everything is controlled tottenham asli and so to some extent. It's like Testing an elevator. Fifteen times And then determining that the elevator is safe. And then okay. Let's put people on it and maybe the boss will get on it as well and it demonstrates to a potential customers that there's a lot of confidence in this vehicle and i think that's probably important for jeff as as well that they have not officially opened up the ticket window and haven't said how much it's going to cost to ride on new shepherd and i have a feeling that jeff is going to be anxious to actually get some customers. Going virgin galactic was able to sell Six hundred seats already and so they already have a customer base. That will keep them busy for a while. I think with blue origin. It's more important to really get customer sales going sooner rather than later especially since there are facing competition from virgin galactic. And i'm sure. Jeff bezos will give it a five star review. If he comes for sure yeah. Click on that if you like this. Maybe you'll like the moon right. Well this is as you said. A first step and some of these moves are pointing toward a larger market for space tourism. And i wanna ask you about that when we get back. You're listening to geekwire. It's todd bishop. I'm talking with alan boyle space and science reporter about jeff bezos flight. Coming up with his space venture blue origin..

"And how it promotes products on its site and it says it has limits in place for how employees are allowed to use third party sellers data now dana as you mentioned before. Jeff bezos is stepping down as ceo. But he's not leaving the company. He'll still be chairman of amazon's board. So what kind of influence do we expect him to have going forward know. Jeff bezos is such like a god-like figure at amazon and he's the founder so i'd imagine he'd still be pretty active when it comes to the very big decisions regarding this company. It's his baby right Even in other companies where a ceo retires and becomes the chairman. That sometimes gives the new ceo pause. Because you always have the the former ceo looking over your shoulder. That's natural right. So i'd expect his replacement andy jesse. Who's very close with him. Who's been at the company since nineteen ninety-seven to To rely on him a bit because you know they had that long standing working relationship and it seems like jeff probably does want to keep tabs on the major initiatives at the company and so tell us a little bit more about his replacement. Andy jesse he's not a household name yet but not a stranger to amazon so who is he. And what do we expect from him. So andy jesse right. Now is the ceo of amazon web services and that is amazon massive cloud computing arm. It's the bulk of amazon's profit comes from his division. It's good tens of thousands of employees. If it were not part amazon it'd be one of the biggest single standing tech companies in the world. It's massive and he's been at the company since nineteen ninety-seven and you know in his early days there. He was jeff shadow he had this roll call the technical advisor where he followed jeff wherever he went attended all of his meetings and really got to soak in some of that culture. And the way that. I'm jeff manages and from that point on he took on different roles with amazon as it grew into more than just the retailer culminating in his role as the head of cloud computing. And so do we know anything about his leadership style or what direction he might take amazon. He's been presented us a lot. More laid back than jeff. Bezos softspoken doesn't really like to be the center of attention but also very very very into the details. We think the biggest obstacle for him is to go from. Aws which is a bit silent with an amazon to running what is essentially the world's largest conglomerates with a lot of different moving pieces you know. Jeff bezos is known for saying. It's always day one at amazon without him. Ceo is it now. Day to will amazon..

"Now it's not surprising that supreme court punted on this thing because congress is actively considering the issue and as a sort of war and and brett cavanaugh and one of the other justices wrote today in an unusual explanation of why they voted to deny sharara they said look. We got to let congress figure this out because congress has burden of national events and national security. So it's up to them. And i just wanna make sure everybody's because i think it's a it's an interesting and significant political and social moment movement. I suspect that many people don't realize i sort of know this because i have a son but only vaguely and then this reminded me like. Oh yeah we have this draft registeration boys and men which is a highly Outdated situation so we say don't we and so when when your son turns eighteen. He's got a march on down on the post office and fill out that form. Actually you can do it online now but but yeah. They add something interesting. I on that okay. All right good number two. I just thought this was really interesting. In our continuing conversations about crypto and bitcoin and my particular obsession with if it's so volatile all the damn time has it ever gonna become a useful currency. So here's the interesting part you. Seeing the department of justice today said look we recovered Sixty three point seven of the bitcoin. That colonial pipeline paid On the seventh of may to resolve the ransomware attack and that bitcoin is worth two point three million dollars which is great except for this on the day that colonial paid sixty three point seven bitcoin plus a little bit because they only got back part of it It was worth four point. Seven billion sorry. Three point seven billion dollars in other million in other words where the other one point four million dollars go. It went to volatility. It went because on the day they paid. Bitcoin cost you fifty six thousand dollars and today bitcoin cost you thirty five thousand dollars and i just i just why. Why do people i mean. Look as i said. My thinking has been changed on bitcoin and a lot of ways but one of them is not that ov- attila these. Okay and it's gonna work itself out and eventually we will be buying pizza with it because that's just crazy crazy crazy. I really liked it. That's the part of the story that you're a little hung up on like like bananas about this. Is that there. Bitcoin totally dropped in value is true and and all of that is true but also i just think it's amazing that they were able to claw back some of this ransom at all. I'm very curious as to how that worked out with respect to that virtual wallet. I don't totally understand the mechanism of how you cash out your bitcoin. They're like atm's and conversions but maybe it takes a long time to launder that much. Bitcoin and that's why they weren't able to cash out in the volatility bid them but i think it's pretty well fascinating and also that law enforcement is saying like maybe we need to go after cryptocurrency as a way to stop ransomware attacks which we will talk about some more tomorrow but that is fascinating to me too so i thought of the same thing for two reasons number one. I thought of course of your three hundred. Bitcoin that vaporize and how by god let's get the department of justice on that number twos something else you just said which is laundering bitcoin. I didn't think you had the laundry. Bitcoin because bitcoin like anonymous. And it's right. So why are they still hanging onto it. I guess waiting for it to go back for something for you. Right launder except that. If you don't wanna paul victim fall victim to the volatility presumably you would want to carry out in some way you want to but right away turn around and sell it unless that is to i. Yeah these are all the parts of the blockchain met. I don't totally get for sure But also i think if anything is going to lead to regulation. I was having this conversation with a friend of mine in finance the other day. About just like what. Is everyone waiting for when it comes to regulating. What he refers to as klepto crypto. Yeah i said well. It's i think it's because it's trillion dollar asset classes until it actually starts to become a threat to the financial System they're happy to profit off of it in the short term and habit as part of their portfolios but if anything is going to kickstart that regulation it could be this kind of like ransom payment situation. I don't know for sure for sure that no. I'm going on willow here. That's no gun tennis ball so might as well go yes. Yeah one is. Just kind of a Bummer to report. Which is that. Despite the pandemic and brief dip in emissions not not so much turns out in fact The levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere reached the highest level since accurate measurements began. Sixty three years ago. Scientists said monday which is essentially. Like what's happening every year since they started measuring sixty three years ago. They said fossil fuel burning is really at the heart of this. And if we don't tackle that it's not going to go away by an just just a gentle reminder that we you know by most accounts have about ten years to start heading quickly in the other direction with respect to carbon emission. So so that's fine. That's a fun one. I also super interested in this situation with the fda alzheimer drugs. Drug the one drug that. The fda has approved The first new medication for alzheimer's disease and almost twenty years. And there's all this controversy around this approval because not to put too fine a point on it in clinical trials. That didn't seem to work that well. It did not reach the goals even of the that. Set up the trials There is there were the fda advisory panel recommended unanimously like ten to zero that. The fda not approved this drug. They said it's it's unclear whether it is effective at all and then on top of that it has these side effects that are you know. One to one point. Three percent And are serious and so it's possible that taking it could even be riskier than not taking patients and it's just a. It's a really interesting and complicated question. There were some some groups that advocated for it but didn't that they had taken money from the pharmaceutical companies that make the drug It two separate groups. In fact and and including i think the alzheimer's association was one of them. I'm gonna find this. Because i'm still in the bitcoin story And so it it. You know there's public citizen watchdog group that has is essentially saying like this is regulatory capture on the part of the fda. There is also the argument that for twenty years research into alzheimer's drugs has stalled because none of them ever work or get approved and so no one can make any money and so if there is a sense that someone would make money in that. There is a path to approval. That maybe that could actually kick start. Research into this. Just horrifies just hor horrific disease you know yeah and yet in this case it is really. It is really complicated. Because it's a very expensive drug that's gonna make these companies a lot of money. And the fda has required it basically gave them an expedited review required them to can continue to conduct trials. And could although it almost never has done this. Potentially clawback speaking of flying back it smooth addition So i don't know so. Yeah so yeah. It's like we really want to have hosted. This thing can be tackled entreated and eventually cared and doesn't this isn't that confidence inspiring and somebody's. I wonder if the last year has changed the fda at all just given the spotlight the pressure. You know. i mean. I i say this with zero reporting binded i just. It's but it's because they've been in the crosshairs all it's actually. One of the criticism has been leveled over and over in the course of the pandemic is that they were too slow and bureaucratic and how progress in approving treatments and other things so it is the that's possible also money talk. Yeah okay. should we. She was canal to read more about that website. Make me smart dot org at marketplace dot. Org let's do make me smile. Zoe all right if i was the world's richest man and i'd been bankrolling a freaking rocket plan for ten twelve years. Whatever it was you bet your sweet baby. I'm going on the i ride. I am jeff bezos said. Today i'm going on blue origin when it goes. I don't know but it was like. Oh my god jeff. Jesus is going to space. Of course he is. Of course he is. It's hip.

I did not know that mark that that jeff bezos has a brother and his name is mark and he is. Jeff bezos has d'appel ganger. Looks just like except with the mustache. So i'm assuming he stands in his body double all the time but they're both going and if i were their mother i would be like. Oh no come on that both going come on. Yes they get to go. Yeah i know parents who what even fly together. yeah well i'm just saying sometimes rockets art successful. that's true that is fair. But also i would. I made that observation this morning and tech producer. Michael lipkin alerted me to the fact that usa today had in fact already written the story that was like who the heck is marked as those. Why are they both going on the same rocket get. Oh that's funny so there you go. I wasn't the personally. He's kind of a double ganger. Kinda steadier looking though gotta tell you. He's looking yeah he's winning. This one thing and that thing is muscles. Sorry jeff us. Not the explains that picture of bezos about three or four years ago coming around the corner and that vest the guns you know what i mean not constantly mark. That's right i'm richard. I'm going to work out because he's not running amazon. Come on. that's my goodness. All right all right but in truth. I have waited this long to talk about the only thing that i care about today. Literal only thing that i care about which is that there is a new prince album coming for the first time since princess utterly devastating death in twenty sixteen. His estate will release a completed but never before heard album. That was finished in two thousand ten but sounds from the description in terms of its politics. Essentially it's very politically focused on for example misinformation the superficial nature of social media reality celebrity culture Racial inequity the estate said that the album ultimately concludes that america's the land of the free home of the slave includes a quote that he wrote at the time in two thousand ten saying the world is fraught with misinformation. Like for all. I would completely freaky. I mean prince saw at all saw dude was a genius very very freaky and i just can't wait. I can't wait. i'm with nicole.

We've got news from the sexy world of concrete. But we're going to start with the hottest new fi. Series bezos in spe yes amazon. Ceo jeff as us announced that on july twentieth when blue origin makes it first spaceflight with humans on board. He will be in fact one of those humans. And i'm not gonna lie when i first saw this story. I just like my heart was in my throat. For just a second and then i took a deep breath and i thought you know what he knows what he's doing and he'll be two weeks out of the ceo chair by then so he can do what he wants. And this is this is. Is this a good sign for amazon shareholders. Like me who are hoping that. Andy jesse's going to get the run the company for a while like because when i thought about it a little more i thought well maybe he really is going to lean into blue origin. And he'll he'll be executive chairman at amazon but he's not going to be looking over jesse's shoulder twenty four seven i you know. I think that amazon is in a position on the businesses in a position. Today were it. Can it can handle something like this. I mean i. I must admit i don't mean to get morbid. Read a headline like this and immediately my mind goes to. Oh my god. This is shaping up to be one of those situations in hindsight where something bad happens and you just just it could have been avoided or whatever i think. That's probably human nature a lot of cases when you're talking about something so uncertain as space travel. I mean now. Now the flip side to that is in. I think that investors name is on line. One should should take solace in knowing that this businesses i think that amazon the business has transcended jeff bezos. At this point. I really do believe that amazon is a is a position today where it can. It can move forward. It can grow. It can continue to prosper even with jeff bezos. Not at the helm. In if you're in a position like that which is nice nice situation then. You can't really hold it against basis wanting to do this. I mean when you look into what's going on here. I mean this alternately really is like a this is a childhood dream of his and so anybody who ever has the opportunity to actually fulfil a childhood dream. I mean it. It's really hard to argue against doing something like that. I'm not surprised at all the cedars in so honestly to me what. This is the more interesting implication for investors is to think about you know we talk about companies like what's their second act you know. What are they gonna do next beyond their core competency. And i think that in this case this we're looking we're watching. Jeff bezos is second. Act kind of start to play out here. I mean blue origin itself has been a passion of this for a long time. I think in its first. Iteration was founded back in two thousand. I think so. It's been around for a while. It reminds me of the you know the book we talked about it before the book that christian davenport wrote called the space barons. And we you know. We have the good fortune interview christian on the motley fool. Money radio show There's a story in there that talks about how back in i think it was two thousand and thirteen.

He's he's a smarter guy. It's like okay well. To some extent he won the genetic lottery in that sense. It's not like anybody can just be. Jeff bezos is kind of indoctrinated as we are to believe that at birth. You can be anything you want to be no matter who you are. It's just not the case i mean. He's definitely the the problem. I see though is like there's no way there's no way to change what he does like how do you. How do you go against somebody that big like what. What are the options. It's like you need to basically have a mob outside of his house demanding that he hands over money or changes business practices The gate unit. Like do you remember the thing you told me about unions. how what does he do. He hires there was leaked a leaked documents from amazon and they showed that amazon does not want well. Amazon wants to diversify their workforce like every other fortune five hundred company like every other governmental organization. They want a diverse population in their workforce they want people working in harmony Indian people black people white people old people young people. They want a very diverse workforce now now in this league document it said that one of the reasons they want that is because it reduces the likelihood of the workforce unionizing. We believe that's true but it's funny. Because like i feel like most supporters of left wing politics. Don't believe that's true right. Well i am not necessarily. I would think that some of them would say that. That is the case but it is the case because which is crazy to me because of negative depictions of black people in the media or something like that and they they would you know. Think like you know things like that. So they say something like well. It's harder for black people to get into unions. Get union jobs. And it's more likely that unions will be started at all white companies because those people have traditionally easier times and an implicit racism that needs to we need to have.

Oh he's got a lot of liquid liquid assets or rather non liquid assets and people. Overestimate how richie is and you seem to have some contrary opinions in other regards. Well i mean okay. So he's he's the person with the highest net wealth according to what is it forbes and many others forbes forbes and that so like first of all what about someone like pooja or the saudis where we have no idea what their net worth is. You know yes. Yes i I work with some people who tell me that there are many people in saudi arabia. Her a richer than what we typically believed to be the richest man in the world or people in the world because their their books are closed right. So there's no way of knowing how much to have oil like the royal family. Like how do you know how much money they have you with us. No way of knowing right yeah. This is wealth that has been collected for thousand years. How could you possibly. There's no records. There's no there's no idea there's no shares. There's no market cap.
