A highlight from Four Questions to Save Your Marriage
"Welcome to the Growing in Love for Life podcast, where it's all about saving and strengthening your marriage and creating the relationship you really deserve and want to have. And now from growinginloveforlife .com, relationship and marriage coach and bestselling author, your host, Liam Naden. This is episode 27 of the Growing in Love for Life podcast. And hi everyone, it's Liam Naden back again with a new episode of our Growing in Love for Life podcast. It's great to be here and I've got some information today that I'm really excited to tell you about. And I've called this episode four questions to save your marriage. Now it's hard to believe we're actually onto episode 27 of these podcasts. And I hope you've been listening to some of the previous ones. I know a lot of people have listened to to all of the podcasts, which is great. And I hope I've been able to give you some ideas and strategies and techniques and things that you can actually apply to your own marriage situation, and which hopefully will make a to save your marriage, which is obviously what this is all about. But you know, it struck me the other day, and this is really one of the reasons I came up with the topic for these four questions that are going to help you save your marriage. And it struck me here we are in our 27th episode. And with 27 episodes, you've got in your hands a huge resource. You know, we've, we've covered an awful lot of ground in these podcasts, we've covered everything from how to forgive your spouse for things that they've done wrong or ways they've hurt you, how to create better communication in your, in your marriage, the sorts of things you should do to save your marriage, other things you shouldn't do. We've created an enormous, there's a big resource here now of information that you can use. And of course, I've also got two very powerful relationship programs. One is my seven -day program, Stop Your Divorce, How to Save Your Marriage When Your Spouse Doesn't Want To. And that's a very powerful step -by -step program when your relationship is in a crisis and your spouse wants to leave, or maybe they already have, and you want to stop your divorce. So I really hope you'll check that program out if you're in that situation. Or I've also got my 30 -day program, my Save Your Marriage Relationship Transformation program. And this is for people who have really lost their way in their marriage, and maybe their spouse wants to leave as well, but this goes into a lot more depth in how to really rebuild the intimacy, the communication, the passion in your marriage, and get things right back on track. So I hope you'll check out those two programs, because they really are the best of my information given to you in a step -by -step plan that's proven to work, it's helped a lot of couples to save their marriage. So check those out. But in these podcasts, and in my books as well, if you've read any of those, and just a word about my Kindle books, I'm really proud of them, I've created a series called the Growing in Love for Life series. And many of them have gone on to become bestsellers on Amazon Kindle. But in all of those things, I've really tried to do two things. The first thing is to give you, as I said earlier, practical things that you can do immediately that are going to create a noticeable difference straight away to your marriage situation and improvement. But the other thing is, I'm also trying to give you some ideas to get you thinking in a different way. And actually, I think that's the more important. Because what happens when you get new ideas and new thoughts, and when you start thinking in a different way, you create new behaviors, and that leads to different results. And Einstein has a quote, we cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. And I think that's so true. And that's why we've got to change our thoughts, change the way we think if we want to get a different result. And I think, just to digress a little bit, but what we're seeing today is a big shift in the way people are being helped to deal with their problems in their life. And that comes down to relationships and marriage coaching as well. And I think this is going to be a big, a much greater shift in the future, but it's effective, and it's very effective because what it actually does is it's a shift away from just simply giving people the answers to actually giving people the right questions, and helping them to come up with the answers that are right for them. This isn't to say that you don't need to know the right things to do. You do need the answers, but you also need to know how to ask the right questions. And that's what we're going to do in this podcast as well, is help you create some more of the right questions and come up with better answers and better solutions. All right, so that brings me to today's topic, which is really about asking the right questions. And I've got four questions for you, and they are four questions that really have the potential and power to help you save your marriage. And just a quick word about these questions. Obviously, as I've said in so many of my podcasts, when I ask you a question, the key is that it's vital that you answer these questions honestly. I mean, at the end of the day, they're only for your benefit anyway. But if you do commit to answering them honestly, and particularly the four questions I'm going to cover today, you may well find all sorts of feelings come up for you. And they might be things that are not very pleasant. You might start to feel guilty, or regret, or anger, or sadness. And above all, you might even feel some anxiety and even some fear. Now, if that happens, you can actually be really pleased and take heart because it not only means you're on the right track, but it also means that you're going to be much closer to resolving your marriage situation than otherwise, because you're going to come up with some powerful answers and you're going to experience that shift in your thinking that I was talking about earlier. And that's really what's going to make the difference. So because of that, you also might want to make a few notes of, as we go along with these questions, write down your answers, and you might even want to pause the audio as well. Give yourself some time, it's really important that you give yourself some time to answer these questions. All right, well, I hope I have, now that I've mentioned that sort of warning, if you like, I hope I haven't scared you off. No, really, this is a very exciting process, and I think you'll be very glad you went through and answered these four questions. So let's get onto those questions now. And they're actually all why questions, they're all questions that start with why. And I think why questions are really the most powerful types of questions that we can ask, because they really deal with the underlying reasons behind things. And this is when you get to the heart of things, and you get to really understand what's going on in a situation, and it's really only by understanding what's going on in a situation and addressing things honestly, that you can start to do some of the things that are really going to work that are going to make the real difference. All right, so let's get onto the first question. And just as way of introducing this question, I just want to fill you in on a little bit of my own personal story. Now, you might have heard a bit about me or read a little bit about me and how I came to be working in this whole relationship coaching area, and how I managed to be perfectly honest to get such very effective results, which is great. And it really comes back to what happened to me. And it wasn't so long ago, I was going through my second divorce. Yes, I was not good at marriage, perfect candidate to be teaching it. But anyway, things are really messy. I'd lost everything. And I mean everything. I was living on my mother's sofa at the time, sleeping in her living room. I'd lost everything I had, my friends, my businesses, my income, all my possessions. Not only that, I was in court with both of my ex -wives at the same time. They were both having me in court and trying to attack me, as it were. So when all this was going on, and I'm sure you'd agree, I wasn't exactly feeling good, but I asked myself a very good question. And that's the first of the four questions that I want you to ask for yourself today. And that is, why am I in this situation? So really think about that for yourself. Why are you in the situation you're in with your marriage? If your spouse wants to leave, why do they want to leave? Why has the intimacy gone from your marriage? Why are you having these problems? Why are you in this situation? Now if you're really honest with yourself, and I hope you are, you realize that a lot of it, a lot of your current situation, if not all of it, has to do with decisions that you have made and things that actually are within your control. So they're things that you've done or things that you've not done. Things that maybe you've ignored when you shouldn't have. You know, maybe you've seen some warning signs and you've just chosen to ignore them. Maybe there are some things that you should have said, but you didn't say them. You just kept them inside. But whatever the reasons, it's about realizing that you actually do have some responsibility for the situation you're in. And, you know, maybe if your husband or wife is having an affair or they want to leave you, it's not just about what they've done or are doing. You know, really ask yourself that question, why am I in the situation that I'm in? And when you ask that question and you really accept that you have some responsibility for where you are, that's a wonderful place to be because it puts you in a position of power. So instead of feeling helpless and powerless, now you know you can do something about it. So that's the very first question to ask yourself. Why am I in this situation? Really powerful. Think about that one. Right. The second question. And again, this, I think, is a very profound question to ask yourself. Why do I want to save my marriage? That's a big question. Why do I want to save my marriage? And this is often the very first question I ask people when they come to me and and ask for help. I say, why do you why do you want to save your marriage? And this means you really need to search very deeply into yourself to uncover the real reasons for why you want to save your marriage. In fact, I've covered this whole thing in a previous podcast. But don't just say, well, it's because I love them and I want to be with them. You know, it's the first reaction. But no, that's not. I don't believe the real reason is that I mean, you can still love your husband and your wife and not be married to them. And if they're making you if you say, well, I want to be with them. But well, if they're making you miserable, then why would you want to be with them anyway? Right now, I'm not saying here that you should leave your marriage, but I'm saying you've got to answer this question. Why do I really want to save my marriage? Now, one way to help come up with the real answers to this is to ask yourself another question, which is, what am I afraid will happen if my marriage ends? You know, what am I afraid of? What am I afraid will happen if my marriage ends? And very often people want to save their marriage because they're afraid of what they think is going to happen if they're not married. They're afraid of things like how they're going to make a living or maintain their lifestyle. They're afraid of the potential impact on their children, or whether they're going to be even more unhappy than they are now. And all of these fears, you know, what are they afraid of that will happen if their marriage ends? All of these fears really come down to a fear of the unknown, a fear of the future, not knowing what's going to happen. And the problem with that is it keeps people stuck. And one of the things we call this place is a comfort zone. And a comfort zone doesn't need to be comfortable. It can be absolutely horrible, but it will be comfortable because at least you know what it looks and feels like. So a lot of people want to save their marriage because they think, well, at least I know what it's miserable, but at least I know where I am. I'm not having to step out into the wide world of total the unknown. So ask yourself that question. You need to come up with the real reasons why you want to save your marriage. And then you need to look at them and you need to say, are these really the right reasons to stay married? And really, if I do stay married, am I going am I going to be able to be happy? Now, hopefully, of course, the answer is yes. But you need to be really honest about it. And unless you are, and I'm sure you can see by now that unless you are really honest with these questions, you're really not going to be able to save your marriage anyway. All right. So that's question number two. Question number three. Why am I allowing my current situation to continue? In other words, why am I putting up with this? Why am I putting up with the current situation and allowing myself and probably my spouse and my children to remain unhappy? Now, if you've answered the previous two questions honestly with yourself, if you've been honest with yourself and if you've given them a lot of thought, then you're probably already getting some ideas, some new ideas on things that you could be doing differently, things that you know are probably going to make a positive difference. In that case, you know, you really need to ask yourself, why am I allowing my current situation to continue? You know, why am I if I know some things I should be doing, but I'm not doing them, why is that? You know, why am I just allowing things to continue the way they are? Because the truth is, you are allowing it to. You know, you might think that it's out of your control. But remember, the previous two questions, by now you realize things are very much in your control and you and you have a responsibility. So if you're just allowing your current, if you're not changing anything, you simply are allowing your current situation to continue. And of course, when you think about the answers, what might come into your head? What's going to surface again when you really think about it? What are your fears, isn't it? Isn't it true that there are things that you fear that are stopping you from taking actions, from doing things that you know you should or even not doing things that you know you shouldn't, but you're not doing them? But just becoming aware of these things is going to make a big difference. So ask yourself that question, why am I allowing my current situation to continue? Even though I know there are some things that I could be doing differently that would make a difference. You know, Bob Proctor, the well -known speaker, he says, our problem is not knowing what to do. Our problem is not knowing why we're not doing it. That's very profound, isn't it? Really think about that. Our problem is not knowing what to do. Maybe you've already got some ideas on what to do, some new ideas, but our problem is not knowing why we're not doing it. And it really comes down to our fears. So think about the fears behind your answers when you answer that question. Why am I just allowing my current situation to continue and realize that you are? All right, well, the fourth and last question, and this is a biggie. And this question is, why am I not doing everything I can to save my marriage? Now, your first reaction when you hear that question might be, but I am doing everything I can. I'm working really hard. I'm I'm, you know, reading everything I can. I'm doing all these things. I'm trying to make my my husband or wife feel really good. I'm putting myself out. I'm I'm spending all my time thinking about it. I'm I'm really trying to figure out what to do. I'm talking to other people. I'm doing everything I can. But the truth is, if you're really honest with yourself, you're not doing everything, are you? You know, there's a story about J. Abraham, the marketing guru, and people would say to him that they were doing everything they could to create a particular result. And he'd say, all right, well, don't tell me everything, but just tell me the first hundred things you're doing to get the result you want. And of course, people would sort of stop for a moment and they might start to, you know, say a few things. They normally get to about 10. And of course, that would be it. No, you're not doing everything you can to save your marriage, are you? So you need to ask yourself, why aren't you doing everything you can? I mean, there are so many things you could be doing that you're not doing. I mean, for a start, you could listen to every single episode of my podcast. As I said, there's 27 of them now. There's a huge resource that you could listen to all of those. That's one thing you could do. I've also got two very powerful coaching programs that have been proven to save marriages that are going to show you exactly what to do to save your marriage. You could do that. And I've also there's there's other information you can find elsewhere as well. You're not doing everything, are you? That's the truth. So why aren't you? And let's look at this for a moment, because, you know, and I'm being brutally honest here, but I am about being honest because I want you to get the result you're looking for. And you're only going to get it if you're honest with yourself and I'm honest with you. So so, you know, a lot of people contact me or some people contact me and they say, look, I'm really desperate to save my marriage. And I'd love I'll do anything I really will. And I'd love to do your program. But and then the excuse comes along. And often it might be, but I don't have the time, time to do it. Oh, really? OK, well, you know, try and find the time for divorce because it's going to take a lot of your time. All right. But you know what I mean? Or they say they can't afford it. You know, it's too expensive. Well, for a start, to be honest, those programs are not expensive. They also come with a guarantee. And there's one thing I can tell you with absolute certainty, and that's the most expensive thing you will ever do in your life is go through a divorce. I can guarantee you that. So it's going to cost you far more than you can imagine to get a divorce. And it's going to cost you many, many times the cost of the program to show you exactly how to avoid it. So you need to ask yourself that question. Why am I not doing everything I can to save my marriage? And when you really ask yourself that question, you're going to come up with some pretty interesting answers. And again, very likely what's going to come up are your fears. You know, perhaps you've thought of doing something, but you think, well, no, it's not going to work. Or you don't necessarily think it won't work, but you're not sure that it will work. So you think you're going to be wasting your money. Or you might think your spouse might be angry with you for having tried something and it being a failure. So it's that fear of failure with you, if you like. Or they might even criticize you for trying. And that's what some people say to me. Well, I can't do this program because if my spouse finds out they're going to be really angry. And I say, well, the alternative is you get divorced and it won't really matter, will it? So is that really a big issue? Or maybe some people also have a fear that it's going to make things worse. But again, how much worse does it have to get? Is it really going to matter if it gets a lot worse? There's nothing worse than divorce, is there? Now, the truth is, of course, you don't have to try everything to save your marriage. You only need to do what works. But you have to be prepared to try everything until you find the thing that works for you. And that might be after 10 things, trying 10 things, and then you find the thing that works. It might be after 100 things. But you have to be prepared to do anything, to keep going until you find what it is that gives you the result that you want. So ask yourself that question, that's the fourth question. Why am I not doing everything I can to save your marriage? Ask that question. Why am I not doing everything I can to save my marriage? Okay, well there are four very powerful questions and I really have found in working with people and through my programs and through coaching that they're questions that really have the potential to massively change your results in terms of saving your marriage. So please spend time thinking about them and really be honest with yourself as well. Because when you're honest with yourself, what happens is you come up with the right answers and that's all that matters is the right answers. And you'll start to see the things that you're afraid of that are stopping you from doing the right things. And that's really, really important. So they're four very powerful questions that are really worth spending some time on. Now I mentioned earlier about my two programs and I do just want to remind you that there's something that I feel very passionate about because I've seen the impact the ideas of my programs really do in helping people save their marriage. And one of the most fulfilling things in my life is seeing two people who have got a great relationship when it turns sour, not throwing it away. Realizing that just a few things that you do differently can bring you back together again, can bring back the magic that you used to have. And it really is a privilege to be able to show people just those little things that make a massive difference. So I really would encourage you, if you like the things that I'm saying to you in these podcasts and you feel that I can help you, have a look at my two programs, my Stop Your Divorce Program and my Save Your Marriage Relationship Transformation Program and all the information is available on my website, LiamNaden .com, as well as other information as well. So thanks very much for joining me again on this podcast episode. If you have any other questions or comments, feel free to email me at LiamNaden at gmail .com. Otherwise, I look forward to helping you soon and talking to you soon. Thanks again and bye for now.
A highlight from 1239. Bitcoin ETF Approved By October? Bloomberg Intelligence INTERVIEW
"All right, so today we're going to dive into some interesting stuff. I think you guys are going to like it. It'll be breaking down some of the ETF news that, of course, we heard last week and, of course, some of the interesting aspects around what was going on with BlackRock. We'll break all that down today. I think you guys are going to love it. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back into Tech Path. Joining me today is Eric Balshunis, who is a senior ETF analyst over at Bloomberg Intelligence. Great to have you on the show. Great to be here. Thank you. Hey, Eric. So a couple of things I wanted to kind of touch on. Obviously, some of the things that everybody was looking at last week was, of course, the delays. The letters started coming in on Friday. We saw all that happening. There was a little bit of a slowness of the BlackRock news. Just your opinion. Why do you feel like that was happening in the way that it was happening? Yeah. I don't understand because BlackRock was up after some other people, or before them, rather. And so it didn't appear as though the delays were chronologically rate -based. It didn't appear as though the delays were based on size. There was no rhyme or reason. It seemed random. And BlackRock came a little later. And the weird thing is, on the site where they consolidate all of them, BlackRock was never added. Yet, on a different place, they did delay BlackRock. So I've long equated what I'm doing here to Jim Garrison, played by Kevin Costner in the movie JFK. There's all these things that could be something, like did Lee Harvey Oswald act alone? And in the movie, he uncovers all this, some legit, some not legit, circumstantial evidence that there was multiple shooters and a conspiracy. So this reminds me of one of those things that probably means nothing in terms of that. That said, just the fact that BlackRock filed is big, and that does mean something. And obviously we can get into that, but certainly BlackRock getting delayed and Fidelity, it shows that they just delayed them all. For a minute there, there was a thought that would delay some of the smaller ones and just approve BlackRock and or Fidelity. But again, we had thought all along this was going to be delayed, because this lawsuit happened like two days before. So it was not a surprise. If they're going to put them out, I think they need more time to work with the issuers and develop some kind of a game plan and make sure all of the T's are crossed and the I's are dotted. So that would not happen in two days. So no biggie. All right. So you mentioned, obviously, the fact that BlackRock is filing in the first place. That's really the huge news here. When you look at BlackRock's position of filing, along with other major proponents, we'll just use there Fidelity as well. And you look at the likelihood with this, obviously, they have a very low ratio of losses when it comes to our non -confirmed ETFs that they've filed. What would make, first of all, what would make BlackRock to have this much confidence to go ahead in this market, the way that this market has been evolving with Chair Gensler and everything that's been happening with the SEC, it's not, it doesn't feel like it's a slam dunk. Why would BlackRock go out on a limb? Yeah. So we have a couple of theories. The best, I mean, BlackRock is a publicly traded company. They're looking to make money. Larry Fink has to appeal to his board that he's doing new things. And it does feel like BlackRock was full on into ESG. That kind of has died a bit. And it seems like this might be taking its place in terms of something BlackRock can do to grow its business, because you cannot make money battling Vanguard in terms of selling like cheap beta ETFs, because even at three basis points on $100 billion, it's not a ton of money and it's not a high growth area. It's growth for assets, but not necessarily for revenue. So we think they're obviously motivated by having a new area they can launch in. Vanguard will probably never launch a Bitcoin ETF, so they're worried about Vanguard there. They could charge a decent fee and they can make it have a new revenue stream. So I think that's largely their motivation. I also think Larry Fink, in my opinion, has heard some back channel that he thinks the U .S. is losing the sort of global battle to be a leader in the crypto space. And I think that frustrates him to a degree. So I think those are two reasons. Back to the revenue, though, think about this gold ETF GLD was launched in 2004, I believe. To this day, it's still the third highest revenue generating ETF, even though there's many cheaper ones. And the reason is, if you could be the big one that has all the liquidity or a lot of it, that gives you pricing power. You don't ever really need to lower your fee because there's just so many investors who just prize liquidity above all else. So we think BlackRock thinks they have a shot to be the one, the GLD of Bitcoin, and that that's going to be a nice little business for them. And we were talking, if it had the same assets as GLD, it would be, again, top five revenue generating ETF. GBTC, by the way, which isn't even an ETF, if it were, it would make the same money as GLD. So like two, GLD and GBTC are in the top five if you ranked all ETFs by revenue. And so I just think that's their primary motivation. I think they also like, what they tell you publicly is they're in the business of sort of democratizing investing and bringing down frictional costs. And I do believe they believe that and they would do that in this case. That said, I think revenue is definitely a motivator. Yeah, for sure. OK, so a couple of things you mentioned there. One, of course, is Larry Fink's position around ESG. He has been a very strong proponent of sustainable governance throughout the last few years. You know, in his letter to his investors over the past couple of years, that's been a big part of it. Now you move into Bitcoin. Bitcoin often accused as one of the most non -friendly carbon neutral tokens and projects out there. But yet at the same time, you have BlackRock potentially on the lead position here for an ETF. How do they balance that out? I get it that they've kind of backed off the ESG message. But how do you balance that out to the investors? Look, I mean, I'm just going to be frank. A lot of ESG, if you get too moralizing when it comes to ESG, it's tough because guaranteed you do something that makes you a hypocrite. It's just the way it is. So I think they backed off a little. And ESG ETFs haven't really sold that great. Even BlackRock took money out of its own ESG ETF from its models. Let's just face it. All this evidence is pretty strong that the term ESG is under pressure and ESG investing, I think, is also going to face some headwinds for like, what are we really doing here? How does it actually impact anything? It just, you know, I've seen this happen. This trend gets a little ahead of its skis. The media love this story. They really hyped up ESG. It's going to save the world. The millennials are into it. And then, boom, it started underperforming and it got political. And so reality set in and it's now going to be probably relegated to a very niche status in the ETF world. One to two percent market cap of the total. I mean, I look at it just in the sense of, hey, it's a capitalist market. Capitalists are going to do things that capitalists do, and that is find where the market flows. And this is obviously what's happening right now. A couple of things you had mentioned around the potential of this ETF going through. I know your percentage right now with you and James has been climbing. Have you changed your position since last Friday before the holiday in terms of percentage of approval? No. Seventy -five percent factored in the delay on Friday. We assumed that. We'd be shocked if they approved them. That said, we went from 65 percent to 75 after Grayscale. And the reason for that is in our 65 percent, we had a 70 percent chance likelihood that Grayscale would win based on our senior legal analyst. So the fact that they won gave us a little extra juice. The other thing is it was three to oh in terms of how that lawsuit was, the ruling came down. Two of the judges came from Democrats. That's really important because there are political workings here. Gensler has a Democratic boss. He is a Democrat. And if enough Democrats start to just move over on this issue and shift to the middle or to the crypto side, it makes Gensler's position more politically untenable by the minute. And so he could keep moving the goalposts legally, I think, as long as he wants. But it's going to begin to look more and more desperate and he's going to face more backlash. And this is a big deal for us. So we thought it was the decisiveness of the ruling, the language, like everything you said has to go out the window. Your whole reason for denial is vacated. And the fact that two Democrats signed on to that, huge. Then the second part was the media attention. Once every six or seven years, do I see ABC News or CNN have an ETF in the headline? I know this because ETFs are in their own little underground. Every now and then, though, something big happens. And ETFs were all over mainstream news. New York Times, ABC, Washington Post. This also matters because the headlines were like, SEC loses, paves way for spot Bitcoin ETFs. Well, now people are just sort of thinking this is going to happen because the New York Times said it and people on Capitol Hill read this. They don't necessarily read crypto trade publications. mainstreamness So the of the media attention and how they were presenting it also made us think that the pressure would increase. And our senior litigation analyst looked at the legal side and determined the SEC has very little wiggle room. That was his words. So when you add the PR aspect to the legal aspect, that's where we upped it a little bit to 75%. That still leaves 25 % for this theory, which is that Gensler being potentially a stubborn guy and or just truly, truly not feeling this should ever happen, even though, again, the stuff that's come out is way more dangerous, 2x Bitcoin futures, come on. Anyway, what he might do is he might lock into some other reason, like custody. I don't know what the custody is safe, then he might start to look at how custody could delay these further. And he may make that the next denial. Like I said, it's going to look more and more desperate every time they latch on to a new issue, but it's possible. And that's why we leave the 25 % opening for that. I want to jump over and onto the Grayscale side of things. From an analyst position, and you look at Grayscale's current scenario playing out, obviously there's a little bit of lead time here. Maybe they do some changes in the way they submit a spot ETF. What is in the future of Grayscale's potential of getting into the ETF game? So Grayscale is going to be tricky. We have this phrase that Grayscale may win the case and lose the race. I'll make some of those things rhyme if you're a headline writer. But anyway, Grayscale is a private placement trust that was just for accredited investors. We've never seen anything like that just, boom, become an ETF. We've seen mutual funds convert to ETFs. I think one closed -end fund converted to ETF, separate accounts, but I guess it's possible. It's just unprecedented. And given you just embarrassed the SEC, it's possible the SEC says, let's make you refile and get in the back of the line, and we'll prove all the other ones first. So this has been somewhat of our theory all along in why BlackRock filed. BlackRock saw a scenario where, I doubt the SEC told them this. That would be a little, I think that's illegal, but let's just say BlackRock thought of this whole scenario, which is, you could see this is a pretty viable thesis. Hey, let's file, because if the SEC loses to Grayscale, you know they're going to be pissed off at Grayscale pursuing them and embarrassing them. And maybe if we're sitting there waiting, just, oh, hey, by the way, SEC, if you want to use us and our new surveillance sharing agreement that we put in here, which is kind of novel, as an excuse as to like why you never approved Grayscale, and you can make them wait, and you can leave this whole thing with the adults in the room of BlackRock, right, you know we're not going to mess this up. I could see that appealing to the SEC, and I could see BlackRock seeing how that would appeal to the SEC. So you get to save face and kind of enact a little revenge on Grayscale in the process. Now, possibly Grayscale could sue them again for that, I don't know. But I see how that would possibly be one of the reasons BlackRock thought they had a route to approval first. Interesting. Well, I think in that kind of scenario, I mean, it makes sense in the essence of this being such a political landscape as it is right now, because you're right, it's all really kind of a card game right now, especially around the issue of ETFs. I want to get into the potential of the impact on the market. And I remember in a podcast you had mentioned potential here around $20 billion in the first couple of months, $150 billion in the first year or two. When you look at that market, do you feel like that is where this, this I'm assuming with BlackRock leading the way as kind of the premier ETF? Yeah, if you have a BlackRock ETF, okay, that's prime time. I mean, we have a saying on the team that BlackRock and Vanguard ETFs are the new IBM. And what I mean by that is if you're a 65 year old financial advisor and you were a broker 30 years ago, it used to be said, you could never get fired for buying IBM. It's just, it's just too good. It's like all American company. No, none of your clients are going to be like, what did you get me into? Now it's, you can't get fired for buying a BlackRock or Vanguard ETF. It's just, it's too good a deal. It's just too bulletproof. Whereas if you went into some crazy hedge fund and stuff, they make it mad, right? But BlackRock and Vanguard ETFs, solid. So once you put it into a BlackRock ETF, it sort of goes into this, it elevates it, I think, for the financial advisors who are like maybe willing to use as a hedge or an alternative, or they have younger, you know, their, their clients' kids are into it. And they're like, ah, now, now I feel comfortable, safe and willing to do this because I use ETFs in the rest of my portfolio. I trust BlackRock. I certainly don't want to custody it myself. They're going to do it. I feel safe with them. The fee's not that bad. It costs one basis point to trade, to trade. I think that's very powerful. And so when I come up with the 150 billion, here's the math, right? One is that's about how much gold ETFs have. Two is if you take advisors and wealth managers, they have $30 trillion that they run for the rich boomers of America, basically. If only 0 .5 % of that comes over, that is 150 billion. So that's, I think, pretty fair because I think you have some advisors who might allocate 2%, but then some that just find it to be repelling and do nothing. So I think 0 .5 to me seems like a pretty fair number. Even it could be low. That's how I get to the 150 billion over time. And gold is about there. So GBTC has 20 billion. So I think you could, let's just say that moves over instantly. That's where I get to the 28 billion pretty soon because either the people move or it just converts over. And then you get BlackRock Fidelity, you're adding to that. And I think also they'll steal some business from the exchanges, frankly. I think if you're in a crypto exchange and you're charging 30 to 150 basis points per trade, this ETF trading on NYSE at one basis point is going to be appealing. So I also think institutions could get into it, especially the one that becomes very liquid because I wrote a book called The Institutional ETF Toolbox. And institutions don't need ETFs generally. They can get everything on their own in separate accounts for almost cheaper than ETF. And they like it private. They feel like ETF is kind of like the dirty public pool down the street. That said, what the ETF does have is even an institution can't resist this liquidity. And it's also anonymity. So if an institution wants to get short or long crypto quickly, it would use this most liquid Bitcoin ETF as a way to put that trade on. We see that happen with GLD all the time. If you look at GLD or SPY, these are things that institutions can get. But the liquidity in them is great because they can go in there with no contracts, anonymous. They don't move the market and they can just get that into their portfolio quickly. So the most liquid spot Bitcoin ETF, I think, will even draw big fish in. So you add a lot of that together and I think you're looking at that much money. Now, let's say there's another FTX that could delay some of this. But I was pretty impressed at how quickly Bitcoin, how resilient Bitcoin was to FTX. It was in the gutter both PR and price wise for a little bit, but not that long. Like I said, Bitcoin, even though I don't understand every aspect of it, I respect its resiliency. It just keeps coming back. Yeah, it's one of those that has made its way finally into the mainstream. Now, I think a lot of this has been legitimized with companies like BlackRock obviously getting involved. But to your point, before we go on to other ideas around this, because there are other components key here that might make sense for how successful BlackRock might be. I wanted to go to James Saffert's post here, one of your colleagues there. Some of the key dates that, let me zoom in on that, you're going to look at a couple of dates here. You've got iShares coming in on 10 .17. There's quite a few coming up right here in the middle of October and even early October with GlobalX. They've got a refiling, I think, coming in. Anyway, when do you think the next potential timing would be for a lot of these potential ETFs to maybe get a green light, if there was a window here? Yeah, so I've got to be honest, I like October because, I don't know, first of all, it gives the SEC two months to work this out, roughly. October is when the Bitcoin futures ETF launched. We're also going to have a whole slew of Ether futures ETFs in October. As you get closer to Christmas, I think maybe the odds go down a little because the holidays hit. October is just a very vibrant month in general, and you've got a slew of deadlines coming up in October. But I sometimes put the deadlines aside and I think that, because if we're going strictly on deadlines, and they want to punt, punt, punt, the first deadline is ARK in January, final deadline where they have to approve or deny. And I don't know if they want to put ARK out first, and that'd be two months ahead of anybody else. They'd be playing Kingmaker. And I think after Bitto, they let Bitto out first like a week before Valkyrie, and Bitto has 95 % of all the volume assets. So I don't think they want to play Kingmaker here. So my guess is they're going to scrap the timeline and we're going to wake up one day and hear probably going to be a scoop or from Coindesk Wall Street Journal or something, or Bloomberg hopefully, that the SEC has decided to say okay to these and they're going to work it out. They'll launch in two weeks. That's my gut. I just don't know if they punt in October and they keep punting and they get to January and they actually deny ARK. I don't know. That makes it feel like just every other denial that's ever existed. So I don't know. I'm leaning towards we're just going to wake up one morning and we're good. I could be wrong. How does this play out, Eric? If that were the case, let's go the absolute negative side of this and they do punt and they finally go to the deadline. They don't push out ARK. They basically do a denial. What does that look like on BlackRock's record? Does BlackRock even worry about that at all or are they like, hey, this is getting out of hand here? You mean if BlackRock's denied in October again? No. I mean, look, what can they do? There's not a ton they can do. Well, if they approve others and let BlackRock, that would upset them, I think. But as long as they're in the group, their main goal is to be outburst. I think their goal is to be one of the ones launched on day one. So as long as that happens, whether it's in October or frankly next year, I'm sure they're fine with that. Now, I think the longer you wait, the longer you get into the situation of what I think also bothers Larry Fink, which is the US is behind the rest of the world in this big time. They've got spot Bitcoin ETFs all over the world and they work fine and they have less liquidity from big time market makers like we have here. So if they can work well during overseas a period like FTX and the percent premiums are pretty tight, they're going to work here. And this is why ETFs are so good. They allow arbitrage. And so I think by releasing the ETF in the US sooner rather than later, it just makes a lot of sense in terms of that race with the rest of the world. But again, Genzer clearly is tough. But the last SEC guy is Jay Clayton. And he said on CNBC after the Grayscale ruling that they have to approve them. It's inevitable. JP Morgan, my colleagues in the sell side, who I'll just say this. I feel we stick our necks out a little more and we're trying to be progressive. JP Morgan now finally after Grayscale says, yeah, they're probably going to approve them like, well, OK, well, welcome to the club. We've been here for a little while. Yeah. Very conservative position. Yeah. And Bernstein said the same thing. But again, as you get these bigger banks actually coming out, again, the narrative then becomes the SEC is approving them. And so, again, it's almost like a self -fulfilling prophecy at some point, especially, again, as you see headlines in The New York Times, it paves way, paves way.
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 07/24/23
"People are really getting engaged in the culture wars with movies. I went to a movie, by the way, over the weekend, saw Mission Impossible last night. Was I right? Oh, wow. Isn't it just the greatest? That really wasn't two hours and 45 minutes long. No, it flew. It felt like a half hour. Yep, yep. But people are upset about the Barbie movie, because evidently Barbie's a feminist. People are upset about the new Snow White movie, because Snow White is Hispanic. We've got to pick the hill we want to die on. I don't want to start a Monday by infuriating people by saying we've got bigger fish to fry than Barbie, but we do have bigger fish to fry than Barbie. However, the culture is reflecting sort of a radical left -leaning ideology, where Americans are saying enough is enough is enough. That's why sound of freedom right now. AMC movie theaters, which is where I almost always go, there were accusations that AMC, the chain, was purposefully sabotaging sound of freedom by the air conditioning systems not working and digital. Mark, I've got reports of that all over the country. What do theaters want more than anything else? They want to make money. No theater wants a bunch of hacked off consumers in the lobby saying it's 85 in the theater. I tend to agree, but on the other hand, would you really find it crazy that they're trying to stifle a movie that is perceived as conservative? It isn't a conservative movie. Anti -child trafficking. Thank you. And it's well done. Well, so anyway, last night the CEO of AMC, because they're in a heap of trouble, they are on the verge of bankruptcy apparently. And I remember the movie theater, the guy that runs the chain based out of Dallas, once was, he gave us some assistance with our fallen officer fund years ago. And I forget the guy's name. Is it Leroy? The guy, is it Cinemark? Is Cinemark in Dallas? I don't know. I think the Cinemark movie theater chain is based in Dallas and the guy that runs it is there. And a great guy had a meeting with him and he's a real pro -America, good, good Texan. Is it Sean Gamble? They are based in Plano. Sean Gamble of Cinemark. Does that sound ring about? Well, and that's not who I met with. The guy was - How about Leroy Mitchell? Leroy Mitchell. That's who I met with. And he's a great guy. And Cinemark, but the biggie is AMC. Well, last night, the CEO of AMC sent out a tweet that said, we're in dire straits here. COVID, now the stupid strike. It really threatens to, and so they're going to have to sell more stock. And I don't know that whole world very well, a short sale, whatever they call it, and they're going to start to get more. They have to dilute really the stock value in order to stay afloat. In any event, the AMC chairman and president in sending out this notification called on the top movies of the year that are doing so well for them. And he mentioned Sound to Freedom. There you go. So that kind of validates what you're saying. Hey, they want to make money. They want butts in the seats. And apparently they have them because over the weekend, you're ready, Barbie and Unbelievable, 155 million, Oppenheimer, 80 million. In number three, Sound to Freedom. And listen, Mission Impossible has been out for a couple of weeks now. Sound to Freedom made more than Mission Impossible this weekend just gone by. 20 versus 19 million. How much? 20 million? 20 versus 19. And it just continues to rock. It's well past 100 million. It's crazy. And it's not just a movie, it's a cause, which has brought some disparagement. Because at the end of the movie, if you go to the end of the credits, there's Jim Caviezel saying, this is vital. Please go and bring somebody, pay it forward, pay so that maybe some people can see it who can't afford to see it, which I'm all about. And so the detractors and haters have said, well, a lot of people are just buying 47 tickets and maybe those are empty seats. A, I don't know. B, I doubt it. And C, I don't care because it shows a willingness to support the film as a commodity and it deserves to be supported. The radical leftists are so dumb, they think we can't figure out that the only reason you're pushing back against a child sex trafficking movie is because you don't like the actor. You don't like Jim Caviezel and you don't like Tim Ballard because these guys are hardcore conservatives. Incidentally, have you played the clip of Jason Aldean at his concert over the set? No, I know that he tweeted ahead and said, listen, people can criticize music, but this goes too far. It's baseless. It's dangerous. I'm writing a star telegram column about this specifically. I'm going to have to plug this in. What did he have to say? He said between songs, he said, it's been a long week and I've seen a lot of stuff. He says, I've seen a lot of stuff suggested on this, suggesting on that. As the large audience cheered loudly, Aldean said, what I am is a proud American. I love our country and I want to see it restored to what it once was before this bull blank started happening to us. I love my country. I love my family and I'll do anything to protect that. The crowd then exploded into an uproar of chants, yelling USA, USA. And who didn't know this was coming? First big record for him in 2005, Hicktown, a flyover country. The guys had all kinds of records that speak to bucolic America. So Sheryl Crow says, Hey, I'm from a small town. This is neither small town nor American. Well, Sheryl Crow's roots are in Kennett, Missouri, in the beautiful Missouri boot heel. Let's go there. Let's talk to the locals and see how many of those folks agree with Jason Aldean or how many think agree with her that he's promoting violence. And then this kills me. Jason Isbell, who's so good, such a brilliant performer and songwriter. Hey, hey, Jason Aldean, I got a challenge for you. Write a song by yourself because he didn't write a small town. Like a lot of other people, he sings songs largely written by others. So here's Jason Isbell mocking him. You want to be an artist? Be an artist. Write your own song. I'll wait. Well, maybe let's wait for Jason Isbell to realize there are some other people who largely perform the work done by others. Does he want to bag on Linda Ronstadt next? Maybe he'd like to go after those pretenders names. What are their names again? Oh, yes, Sinatra and Elvis. What a weird, baseless, sloppy attack. This is a total win. God bless Jason Aldean and God bless that wonderful, wonderful record. Try that in a small town. These folks are revealing who they truly are. They don't like the idea of people being able to protect themselves. They don't like the idea of somebody saying we take care of one another. And we got guns and we know how to use them. So that's what they don't like. And to you and me and to most normal Americans, that's a message that resonates. That's America. Sorry, we ain't the UK. We're not France. We are a Second Amendment believing country, but the left, the Sheryl Crowes, the Isbells, I guess those folks just hate that message. Meanwhile, we're looking closer to closer to 2024 to see who's going to get us out of the mess, who can get us out from Washington, DC. This Harris, I don't know if you saw this, Harris -Harvard poll came out. The Harvard -Harris poll, typically pretty reliable. It was released Friday. If the 2024 Republican presidential primary were held today, of course Trump would pretty substantially, 45 to 40%. Now there's 16 % undecided. I'm back and forth on whether Trump should appear in a couple of weeks at the first debate. I think he should. I've been saying it doesn't make any sense for him. You know why he needs to be there? Tell me your reason. I'll give you mine. Good. Let me start. If you believe any of this data, his likability factor is just below that of radio talk show hosts and used car salesmen. He's way down there, right there with Biden. Biden and Trump both have an unlikeability factor, but here's the bottom line. To normal people, Trump's likable. To normal people who aren't poisoned by their Trump hatred and their Trump derangement syndrome, when you see him in a setting like that, you do like him. And I think it's important he's going to have to get that number back up. He's going to start having to win over independence. And one way to do it is to have a solid performance of the debates. Now you go. You're 1000 % correct. Let's begin with the fact that Trump is right when he says, why do I even have to show up? Why should I be taking a tax from Asa Hutchinson and, you know, people who have 2 % of the polls. I don't even need to be there. Let everybody sort it out. And then somebody come after me. He's right about that. However, you are completely correct. There is a benefit to being there, to reminding people how great he can be in that venue, to maybe duke it out a little bit with DeSantis, see how that goes, see how other people engage him, the way they address him and engage him may simply solidify his front runner status. And finally, this is sort of in harmony with what you've said, any opportunity to be on a TV stage with millions of people watching and be likable, be skilled, be quick, be sharp is nothing but a good thing. It's all good. It's all really, really good. You know, I, you mentioned the funeral for Stu Epperson and there were a lot of movers and shakers, Stu Epperson, of course, the co -founder of the Salem Media Group, who passed away this week in Winston -Salem. And I went to the funeral on Friday and many thanks to Carl Jackson for filling in and doing a great job. And there were a lot of key broadcasters there and a lot of big time Republican operatives. I'm not going to mention any names, but I had a chance to talk to people in the green room and sort of, you know, as we were meeting the family and expressing our condolences. And it was a gathering of a lot of people who loved this man's magnificent life and what a life he led.
Is the Church Watering Down Christianity?
"All right, let me jump back on that. Think about Christianity. I just really believe that the church is watering it down too much. You know, I know you want to be inclusive, but the Bible says biggie separated. You're in the world, but you're not of the world. So that means when a person of the world goes to the church, they need to experience a different experience. If you show up to church and you feel like the same, you feel the same as it, as you do at the club, then you have a problem. If you go to church and you don't feel challenged, then you have a problem. Your pastor is preaching, what do you call it, gummy bear, Christianity? I'm not saying she's going to feel condemned every day and like, oh, man, I ain't never gonna make it to heaven. But it should be a challenge. Because if you didn't go to church and you read the book of Matthew, you read Jesus testimony. It wasn't nice. It wasn't fluffy. It was a very challenging thing. If you go and read the book of Matthew as a Christian, you will be, it's going to make you feel some type of way. Because Jesus said a lot of things in the past, adultery was when you physically had an adulterous relationship with another person outside of your marriage. He said, not only is that adultery, but the adultery of the mind, if you have lusting or thinking about being with somebody else's wife or somebody other than your wife or your husband, that is you are committed adulterer in your mind.
Transgender Shooter Reveals Perverse World of Leftist Ideology
"Let's see. Transgender shooter reveals a perverse world of leftist ideology. Now, I think that this is written by Ben Shapiro at the daily signal, let me see if there's anything good in this one. I just kind of looked this up. That's another article that I wanted to do we have that clip, Sean, of what you sent me. All right. And so I want to play this clip. Is it the one that God made me and her image? Is it that one or something different? Oh, dead name me. Okay. All right, let's do that real quick. In coupled with Ben Shapiro's article about how transgender shooter reveals perverse world of leftist ideology, I think this clip goes in line with how dangerous and ridiculous these people are perceiving, transgenderism, in light of kids get murdered, wrote a clip. Aiden Hale, that's the name of the natural shooter. This video is about to be very uncomfortable for a lot of us. It's very uncomfortable for me to talk about, but we need to talk about it. Aiden did a very horrendous thing. Period point blank. We need two pew reform in our country. But the way that the media and the police are misgendering and deadnaming Aiden is quite concerning. It's also concerning that I had to go to the telegraph from UK to actually get Aiden's chosen name. It's upsetting that constantly it is she her pronouns. That is incredibly frustrating. Because even though they did this horrible thing does not mean that we get to do those things. That's a boundary, and we can hold people accountable without being transphobic. Even for some of the most horrendous things. So while you're watching this also watch for transphobia because it's very clearly coming out. Hey biggie smalls, let me put this in perspective. So y'all can't see it, but a big nasty one was on there. Just talking stupid. Now think about this for a minute, 'cause she's gonna get canceled. So isn't it ironic that they say that people are dead, name me? Why are you dead shaming somebody? Somebody's dead shaming their lady because they're using the word dead in the context of explaining that little kid that got smoked like a brisket. These people are so nutty to me. You worry about transphobic and all this stuff. The person's official name was an aide in any way.
Was the Nashville School Shooting a Hate Crime?
"The New York Times issued an update several hours after the rampage effectively apologizing for having identified the school shooter by her biological sex. There was confusion later on Monday about the gender identity, which is very interesting, not the gender. Now, so The New York Times acknowledges that there was something different about trans people with in terms of gender as they use instead of sex, but fine leave it that way now. There is something different because they would never say that about a person who is biologically the same as identifying. Again, there was confusion later on Monday about the gender identity. Did you ever read there was confusion about the gender? So in other words, The New York Times is tacitly acknowledging that gender and gender identity are not the same. Wow, that's a biggie. So I'm sure the eluded them that they were, in fact, doing that. It was confusion about the gender identity of the assailant in the Nashville shooting the times tweeted, officials had used she and her to refer to the suspect who, according to a social media post, and a linked in profile appeared to identify as a man in recent months. So that's the tweet from The New York Times. And that's all you need to do. If in recent months you say you're a man, then The New York Times says you're a man. That's it. If the individual changed three months later, then The New York Times would say she. So you don't learn the gender from The New York Times, you learn the gender identity. That is their own acknowledgment. What is important here, aside from that, is if indeed, we're talking about a trans individual murdering students and teachers at a Christian school, might this be what is known as a hate crime. And that will be very interesting to see if that is so if that is labeled as such.
Furman Upsets Virginia in NCAA Tournament
"You're doing brackets. Mine already busted, dead dumb. But yeah, it was what we had a couple of big upsets. You had Arizona going down, Princeton, beating Arizona, and then this Furman. By the way, I've got to play this audio. I love a good radio announcer. And we've got the guy they've got for firm and did a terrific job calling the game this huge upset win last night cut number two. Inbounder. Clark gets it in. Gets it back with him. Clark double teamed along the baseline. Those are at the floor. Intersected by heme biggie's for three and the win. With 2.2 to go. 68 67 pounds. Virginia calls its final timeout. They get it into beekman on the right side. His three on the way. No. No. And vermin wins it. Burman wins it. JP McGee's getting involved by his C mates right here in front of us. The palette is winning 68, 67. And not Virginia out of the tournament. Garbage first appearances 1980 will not be one and done. Jump in hoy look at this scene here on the floor. The purple paladins. By the way, a little history here. And by the way, we have all family members working on the show today. But you know, our family, we got a couple of buildings at Furman, named after our ancestors over there, so a big firm in university. We had a lot of our relatives that went to school there played basketball there, so a lot of sports stars back in the day, from Furman University. It used to be a good baptist school.
'This is what it's all about' — Shaka Smart speaks on Marquette defeating UConn to advance to the Big East Championship
"It will be a match above marquette and Xavier and the biggies tournament final at Madison Square Garden. The 6th ranked golden eagles were pushed by David Joplin and Tyler Cole who had 17 points apiece as they edge 11th ranked UConn 70 to 68. Marquette head coach Shaka smart said his team definitely played with the chip on his shoulder. A lot of people were just kind of giving you kind of game coming in.

How to Mitigate Your Digital Addiction With Andrew McDiarmid
"You're with the discovery institute. You have an article in the New York Post that just appeared if people want to find it. About how we've become addicted effectively to our phones. And what I was going to say, there are several things. First of all, you know, I feel a lot of people use their phones for everything and one of the ways practically that I think we can deal with this is not to do everything on your phone. In other words, not to a lot of people read the Bible on their phone. And I would say, you know, it's great to have it there if you're on a bus or some place and you can't. But maybe if you read your Bible, if you're a Bible reader, read it in a book, use the book in the morning. Or there are things kind of like that that we can do because I think part of it is this visceral addiction we have to go to this thing, this thing, this phone, whatever it is, and that there are many things we can do that we don't need to use the phone for. But what other ways that you think practically people can deal with what is clearly as widespread a problem as there is? Yes, Eric, great points. Yeah, and you're right. There are things we can do to mitigate our desire to be holding our sleek smartphone and iPad and even laptops, you know, as much as we do. But the smartphone is definitely the biggie because it can be kept in our pocket. It's right next to us. It's an extension of ourselves. And one way to stop that or to reduce it is to do less on it. Yeah, so I would definitely advocate that. It's never sat well with me that we can have the Bible on our smartphone. It really hasn't. And I'm somebody who has tapped into it at times. Just like all of us, you know, it's there. It's convenient, but it just hasn't sit with them out well with me somehow. And I'm definitely an advocate of picking up the paper Bible and just getting your nose into it, you know?

"Gym class and they girls need these like brown perky boobs and I'm like, what the hell is the matter with me? Like I'm a weirdo, you know? So I ended up opting for surgery. It's not for everyone, but yes, to your point about the fact that even if you've had breast surgery and you have implants or that sort of thing, you definitely need a well fitting supportive bra. There's been studies out of the university of Portsmouth in England, which kind of has been the forefront for the studies on this stuff. And they put women on a treadmill. So even if you're just walking around, like you're running errands or dropping the kids off at school, like you're just walking on a treadmill, not running nothing high impact, they found that your breasts still move up and down a significant amount when not supported by a bra. And even if you're an a cup, they moved up and down the length of a paper clip. So even if you think, oh, I'm so small, I don't remember way back when Katie Holmes running the New York City marathon with no bra and it was like a big story.

"Implant. There's, you know, there's all different cases. And so she actually made something made different styles that accommodate all of them. So she's been getting a lot of press and buzz lately just because she's really serving kind of that underserved market. And then Jean Chris, Kris kross intimates. She is also a breast cancer survivor. And made some really unique bras that are really meant for post surgery. So it's great that you have these kind of like trailblazers that are doing that. And I think because of their personal journeys, just like mine, you know, something we can all relate to, they're kind of like on a mission basically to make it happen and get everything out there because of what they went through and their desire to help other women. So I really appreciate that too because for me, it's never been about a money making venture. Like, of course you need to put food on your table. And I have four children, let's be honest, like children are expensive. But in my heart, it's always been about helping people and getting, you know, kind of using my platform using my voice to be able to reach as many women as possible and people as possible. As opposed to just making a living. Right. Which I think is so great. You know, you mentioned before taking a very different turn, right? But that these two incredible founders went through this and had this, I'm going to offer up my own personal, so I had a breast lift because I went from an a cup to a D cup when I was like in 7th grade overnight. Wow. And I grew up always with large, not larger breasts, but not like giant breasts, but like large breasts.

"That is oftentimes too big of a cup. If you have the strap sliding down or the back band riding up, that often means the band is too big. So there's like everything can kind of be attributed back to a size issue, right? You know, I also find that it's really hard to because, you know, company to company, sizes vary, right? So I've been going to Victoria's Secret since I was like, you know, old enough to shop at Victoria's Secret. Right. But, you know, I feel like I'm one size there. I did a profiting with Kobe, right? In Italian branded Brennan and European sauces are very different. Totally different. Totally different. And I think that that can be really tough too. Well, Victoria's Secret, I will tell you has gotten a lot better. I actually worked at Victoria's Secret when I was in college, way before I ever knew I was interested in bras and I was pursuing a communications degree and I became a journalist right out of college. And I sort of became interested at that time, but back then it was, you know, you were trained to make sure that people walked out the door with bras in hand. So because it's very expensive for a bra company to make a lot of different SKUs, which are a lot of different sizes, like for them to have 25, 30 different sizes on their racks, that's very expensive for them to do. So like in the 90s, for example, Victoria's Secret would have their core size range that they would carry in their stores, and they would train you to fit every woman into those sizes. So you could be actually measuring a 32 F and we would have you walking out the door in a 38 C it's called sister sizing because bra sizes are based on volume. So that was how the industry was. And then the European brands were totally different animals sold in specialty shops. They would have a lot more sizes, but the sizing was different, right?

"Real truth about the fake shit. I'm amber mills and today my fabulous co host is janae luciana Senna. She is a bestselling author as well as a profiting expert and we are so excited to have her today because we are gonna be talking about everything having to do with the bra size whether you are a biggie, a biddy, whether you are a cancer warrior, survivor, you've had to have a mastectomy, we are going to get you totally covered and have a lot of fun in the way. I want to thank you so much for being here today, janae. Should we say covered or uncovered? Oh, you know, you know what's funny? So you sent me one of the Jim bras and we're gonna talk about your line of Jim bras, you know, towards the end of the show. But I was debating, I'm like, should I just wear this? And listen, audience, my listeners, you know, I love you. And I am an open book, but I was like, maybe I don't need to be that open. Why not? The nice thing about it is it's like very full coverage. Because it was originally designed for QVC and the QVC audience. Which tends to be a little bit older. So it's nice full coverage style bra. So you can feel comfortable in it. I would say it's like more coverage than a beating too. Yeah. Well, you know, I just wasn't ready today. It wasn't ready to show. Next time. Next time. You know, I think that for so many of us, you know, wearing a bra is something that is like, you know, putting on underwear, right? It's something that we have to do every day. It's like part of our daily routine that is baked into our routine. But yet so many of us, myself included, it's like finding the right fit, you know, sometimes it's like you'll also wear a bra long past its prime.

be as a result and he said that the Russian invasion of Ukraine changed this year from what looked like a difficult year to a completely unpredictable one So very interesting lines out of that interview with vasta CEO Yeah absolutely And we'll be bringing to you of course many more of those interviews that we have at live in Davos throughout the morning So let's also though kind of make a link I suppose because obviously the war in Ukraine is just turned to so many things upside down including here in the UK There is much speculation in the UK media that the Chelsea Rishi sunak is going to come up with a big package of help in terms of the cost of living crisis will that include a windfall tax or not and this kind of segues into one of the conversations that we had yesterday on Bloomberg Westminster Now we spoke to Sarah olney who was the Liberal Democrat MP for Richmond park and north Kingston here in London She's also the party spokesperson on transport business energy and industrial strategy Now she told us yesterday that there is now a reasonable expectation of recession here in the UK Well I mean it's obviously a great news Everyone in London is really delighted There's a huge crowd because I think the pictures and I'm looking forward to getting my first journey on it sometime later this week So I don't want to detract from what a great day this is the London finally have our new railway line I think it's worth saying this particular line I think it's been something like 30 years in the planning and it certainly took a great deal of time effort money to get it built I think what's really important about the Elizabeth line is that we really there have been lots of problems in its execution I think it's really important that we take an opportunity to learn the lessons of what went wrong just to make sure that some of the other big infrastructure projects we've got going on HS two for example we don't make them again I think that's going to be one of the real benefits But I think a very disappointed in the integrated rail plan that the government released last year because it's starting to really scale back some of the ambition And I think there's no doubt that investing infrastructure at this point particularly the sort of infrastructure that can help us reduce our carbon emissions dispose of and for the cities of the north and the Midlands have really really need that And it's so important So it's something that we've really got to kind of push ahead with as much as we possibly can Okay lessons learned I mean I put that it was actually the exact same phrase that the commissioner for transport for London also used This morning when I was speaking to anti bifur I mean surely one of the lessons to be learned from all of this is borrowing against future revenue is tricky 5 billion quid is what TfL has borrowed against future commuter fares the commissioner saying that he hopes to make that money back Is it really realistic though Commuting numbers have now dropped because of the pandemic Well that's right I mean I was speaking to a railway industry individual the other day And I think commute commuting is now somewhere at about 70% of what it was pre-pandemic although we're seeing a big increase in leisure travel so we can travel to something like a 102 103% of pre-pandemic So it certainly looks as if impacts of travel have shifted And I mean I think in all fairness that's not something that could have been predicted because no one was modeling a pandemic and the massive impact that would have on you to travel when they were planning crossrail But certainly I think we would need to be building in degrees of uncertainty Perhaps greater degrees of uncertainty into future investment of this kind I don't think that necessarily militates against borrowing against future fair income but certainly I think people will want to see sort of greater margins for error possibly in future modeling Manchester leads which is not a long journey takes an hour and a quarter on the train do other Lib Dems still arguing that tens of billions of pounds should be spent in London building crossrail two where rabi lines in the north are so woeful No I don't think that's where there's no reason why we can't have both with a political commitment but we've always said we've always been strong advocates of more investment in the north And indeed when HS two was being discussed we said let's start it in the north because that's where the urgent requirement for investment is It's in the cities of the north It's connecting up places like Manchester and lead It's making sure that we can increase capacity more than anything else In the north And so we will always strong advocates for starting HS two up there And of course we started HS two in the south and now what we're seeing is a scaling back and that's really quite disappointing for the government So that was Sarah olney the Liberal Democrat MP of course she was largely talking about the infrastructure project of the huge Elizabeth line that was revealed yesterday but just how desperate other infrastructure projects are needed particularly in the north of England So that was so only conservative Sorry Liberal Democrat MP Such an interesting debate will have more on British politics than Bloomberg Westminster today will be speaking to the Tory party MP for welling bray that Peter bone he'll be with us at noon UK time or you'll find it as podcast later today Now coming up.

He's going to be tough to deal with. Jade and ivy and Zack Edie, if you put either one of those two guys on first team all conference, you'll have no you'll have no mistake.

So if those two guys merge, I mean, Zack Edie, there isn't anybody in college, basketball like them, and I also tell you this, he's playing for the perfect coach because there is no better coach in America that has the ability to take that guy and put him right where he needs to be get him the ball without a dribble, not able to double team and get him the ability to score the ball.

We'll see if the quality of the show will be hyped up a little bit more will be increased a little bit more because a fan reaction fan being in the attendance. So we'll see what happens but Still with aws. great thing. That i mentioned that. I saw boy. You know people like the shit. Roman reigns even when he was a face. Even when you know people were complaining. Like roman reigns trying was being shoved throats at the guy who was to be the next scene in terms of being a baby face guy. I as a right now. Like i said i'm biased toward kenny omega but It's hard to argue. That roman reigns his character. What he's doing the work that he's doing. He's the best in the business right now and the performance against edge last night. Yeah it was a little slow. Yeah it was a little plotting. Yeah it was probably. Let's something that a bigger guy like a giant the pace of a giant of no mass of a big show or something like that of of a Both crew was just released I've got it was. I see his face. Who brought stroman. Thanks thank you all bu- person moment. Yeah but the he had roman reigns had the pace of one of those guys. The big giant monster type of guy in i've miocene roman reigns go though i mean i've seen him in programs where you know he has to go go go. So he's extremely versatile but this the psychology that he brings to the table right now with his matches the way that he tells the story the fact that the you know him an edge pulled a fucking awesome story last night in the rain in the ring. I thought that was great at that level and much love omega much as i love all the guys on e. w. There's no one outside chris. Jericho in that promotion. That cannot tell a story quite light.

Wrestlemania 37 Review Special (Part 1) ft. Pro Wrestling Insider Shane Peacher (Ball & Buds Podcast Episode #14)
"It felt like the old wwf. You know where they would have the pre match interviews and they just did like a thousand one before the before the show. It was great. It was awesome. I was actually happy that the rain happened. So let's start from the top. And i know you told me to talk about this and i was gonna ask you anyways. How do you. Because you are the biggest cogan hogan fan in the world titus and hulk hogan forever pirates soups. What are you kidding. Me ho me. tease john. Now i love hulk you know that man that was ridiculous and i love the whole a guest host. I guess but i mean it's just so scripted in horrible but it was so tacking it was it was eight hogan and it was hilarious and i loved it anyways just because it was hawk. I'm biased though osos soobee. you're biased. I love to do though even though it was awkward as well like they really tried to force this pairing together and it was like really didn't need to do this right and then of course you know you. They forced it because of the whole inward situation. Because if you remember when it first happened in hall they let hawk come back like titus kind of had an issue if you remember if you remember that whole scenario so i think they did. I think it was forced because that which is awkward. And i think hilarious because although titus forgave. I don't think he forgets to say i heard that. China's said technically forgiving him. But i heard that he was also still feeling that obviously so i was really awkward but it was kind of funny to me and i'm sure well speaking of they let that happen. Also because titus was in tampa so they actually tried to prop him up in his hometown but biggie. They took the championship from. Why do wwf keep letting or keep wanting to humiliate the wrestlers by having them losing their hometown. Do they think that this is good. Because it's not no. I don't know if it's hometown thing. I just think if you look back after the fat none of the world championship changed and so they had to change the littler titles. I think that's really it. You know what i mean. Because how many mania is does a world title never changed especially nixon had to one for each show. You know what i mean you have the world title and then undisputed title. Neither changed hands. And that's rare for mania. You always usually have a title change Meanwhile when i heard it will trump ender explanation is. I'm gonna beat you so it sounds like a drum is like okay. These kids don't even know what the matches but it was just a weapons manage. You know why. Why why you know what i'm saying. I mean they had like a whole bunch of guys around the ding beating drums. And you know the exact same thing you know. Maybe the an open pit you know like the african wrestling. I don't know if you've ever seen it looks like we're like scooting around in dirt. Yes can you know single knees wrestling that whack. I know the the matches it was kinda. Get his get his turn to because kofi had a big wrestlemainia match aside from the tag team for when he went for the title. This is big east big match. But of course he's got to lose because he's in results were rating so far right now the only result i think that was correct was owens. This was correct if it wasn't in his hometown but

3 Reasons Why Big East is the Most Intriguing Basketball Tournament
"Is my real opinion. I think the big east tournament is the most intriguing one for for this reason. There's a handful of reason number. One villanova has no point guard now. Justin moore ankle the kospi's we just found out that justin. Moore's not going to be playing in this thing Twenty seven points per game between those two now. I mean the game from villanova as we know in the new iterations of the biggies has been dominant. They win the regular season. Big east tournament right over there still time and here still good enough to win at eight. So let's not get ahead of ourselves and count them out yet but it makes it a lot more interesting because it's like. Oh what house villanova congress because your best player yes. He's not playing. Yeah what what are the what's going to happen. They're seen hall saint john's. I'm looking at this game on thursday. That is like a. I don't know if it's a plan but it's play out for sure. Whoever loses that game doesn't that's intriguing creighton. The greg mcdermott situation. I hear you say loser leaves town man. That was really the we we know the greg mcdermott's situation they got bruin there but like they're they're they're working through. Whatever that is like xavier saver that is on the bubble. They'll they might be playing crates and crates trying to get some mo jo bags and butler had that one game against villanova where they realized life and then and then we get to the bottom of the bracket with yukon you. Let's be honest. Your own has slowly turned into the favorites and again this is not a companyman move. I know we have coach. Dan hurley on the show today but uconn in the you know the majority of the country it feels like they don't know who to look to to college basketball and therefore defacto we go to uconn right here. We are back in the big east for the first year. Back in madison square garden in the big eastern star seem to be a line if you're yukon though bula there
"biggie" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"On his receipt pertaining to his weight. To biggie phrase typed on a Chick fil a order in Goodyear to the number two and Biggie. All right, like Biggie Smalls? I don't know. Maybe So that's what it said. You know, sometimes. Like I'm trying to remember when you're when you're in the line of chick filet. You don't have to give your name. They're not gonna call you by name. You're in a line in your car. There's just times they call you the ask you. What's your name? Okay. Something I don't remember that. I know that there are two lines and, you know, usually, they say, followed the silver car and sometimes keep it got people out there to people out there that are taking you Don't even get up to the drive through window and check the light. They come out and take your order. So why did someone on the because they give you a receipt? Why did somebody on the receipt They call him to biggie. Seven characters that hold a lot of weight to the man who received its Valley veteran David Allen, who's trying to lose some. It's been hard. It's been really hard. And to be slapped in the face like this. I served for this country just to come home and be treated like this. Well, okay, slow down. First of all, uh, Did they make fun of you? The hard thing he thinks they did. Well, of course he remember in today's world and you know this better than anybody. It's no longer how anything was meant, or it's how everything is taken. And when you feel that people are after you, or that everybody's looking you because your weight you're a little bit more hypersensitive. It could have just been something that was on the receipt. You know? Yeah. I mean, we've heard of this before. Yeah, Like, you know, we do stories we've heard about this story. If you're a waiter, and you're at a table, and sometimes they put you know what the top Sometimes, you know, you hear that news story they call They called someone one of the people sitting there derogatory name. Sometimes it's racist. Sometimes it's you know, Fat lady young bag. It's just weird, right? I don't know why anyone would do that. Is that what happened here? Shit for light. To the number two and biggie because they saw him in his car when he pulled up, So they saw who we Woz. And the order name was printed as to Biggie. On the receipt. It was just disgusting. David says he's finally turning the corner on losing weight's. After years of trying sideline for so long from physical and mental issues from his time overseas, the chick fil a order was even for him. It was for his wife, Olympia couldn't believe they would write something like that so publicly. And so just to be so disrespectful. She confronted the manager who told her that the cashier thought the name on the order was biggie and the number two was for the lane. There were in, she said, his name back singing three different times, so that would go to the argument that you said They asked him what his name was. So when you get to the window, they say, are you Chad? Okay, Chad, I've got your order. Yeah. Now and saying this. I have four charity warn those little headsets and somewhere between the headset and the 50 ft and your every third work. So I It's Chick fil A. Now you tell me it's Zack in a box, baby. Abi, you brought you to Jack in the box with not chicken. I love Jack in a box for you Tell me jacket about you don't think I would have said it manager Jack in a box. I shouldn't be here. Jacket about seeing this kind of food s. Oh, no. There was no miscommunication. So it was done on purpose. All right here here. Here's the thing. I don't know. Why would you call the media on something like this? That's something you really want out there. Like you want to tell your story. That way, Because I'm just thinking if he was really hurt by it, you go in and you say something. And you say, Hey, I'm just gonna let you know whoever did this really tick me off with this and you need to go and have a stop and chat with the person who ever Whoever called me this because you know if if if it wasn't a mistake, and they were making fun of my way, this a bunch of B s. Here's that them never coming here again. If it was a mistake, you're still not going to believe it. Because as far as this guy's concern is thinking concert, it was absolutely done on purpose. So even if it was a 16 year old kid is like I'm sorry. That's what I thought your name was. I couldn't hear. And it wouldn't matter because in his mind he is made up in his mind that they insulted him on purpose. The name doesn't even make any sense to the number two and Biggie too. Isn't like Was it to order plain too? Yeah. But the insult doesn't make any sense to present. It doesn't I mean, if you if you're a kid there, right? You're taking the order. And you see this guy you like men? That guy's way overweight. Hey, you're gonna come up with something better. Than to biggie too big is I'm just trying to understand like if that's or if they're ripping you. It's like someone doesn't know how to make fun of you properly. You know what I mean? Well, it is Chick fil A's. If it's all right, they They're good about fat. And then you put a three letter word out there like that's ripping somebody to big brother translates Biggie Smalls. I don't know. Right? I mean, do you think a kid knows who Biggie Smalls is? You got a 17 year old kid working a chick fil A. I don't know, man. Really? So, I mean, it's guessing. No, I'm stop guessing. No, you know, it's bigger. You would think because you guys out there who have no idea. Biggest Smalls is look him up. I know what was the guy's name? The gentleman's name? What was his real name? David First name is day, David. All right. I'm going to say this right now. I don't know how you just say this. I have a picture of him right here. I could see why they would say Biggie like Biggie Smalls. You think he looks like the rapper? Yeah. In fact, young Pablito. Look this up. Look him up, But, you know veterans Chick fil a And take a peek and tell me if there's a little resemblance of Vegas malls. There's some similarity between him and Christopher Wallace. Yeah, late rapper Biggie Smalls Biggie Smalls, But I'm also with Gators Don't take a 17 year old kids things unless you guys just like, you know, big guy or something like that. And they were giving the order over the speaker or to one of the peace sounds like to one of the people who then come out, and then it gets relayed straight TOC people inside and like I say, I've worked there on numerous occasions like not there, but like places where I've gone and done charity. You can't hear anything coming from the guy that was outside, taking the order to the person inside the restaurant That's got miscommunicated. Listen, his name's David. Don't know where you get to biggie from David. So we'll forget the two. That's the lane number. Just go with the guy very excited about the two. I know it. I don't know. It's lame number. I have no idea. Maybe. Maybe it is maybe total sense, though, that it would be the lane number because I always have to wait. What do you talk about? All right, coming up coming up. You want.

"biggie" Discussed on WCBM 680 AM
"Thanks a lot, but it's not good to use the car right now. Right? Well, I mean, the only is I'm not sure if it's gonna possibly leave you stranded and that's what I'm concerned about. You don't want to see that. I don't want to see you stop somewhere for an errand and then get back out in the car won't start for you. So I'm afraid kill. That's why it's important to get it checked out as soon as possible by either Desmond's or Tim's. Yes. Okay. Okay. I really appreciate your help. Thank you so much. I really like missing to you. Thank you, Mary. Appreciate you doing that. Have a Red day. All right, you too. Bye Bye. Bye. Bye. Now. I got to keep that vehicles radio from switching. AM FM That's just got to stop. Herb is in Perry whole. Hello there, Mr Herb. Good morning, Dave. How you doing? I'm doing well. Good morning, Herb. Already happy New Year and I have a 2017 Chevy equinoxes. Okay, happened there too Sure. Okay, has the 20 it, says the 2.44 leader. And if force on around here so under under which you met? Uh huh. Yep. GM put a ton of these things and all different kinds of vehicles. Yeah, that's a very popular engine. Yeah. Anyway, I'm up around 70,000 miles on this vehicle now, Okay? And I'm starting to notice. It's using a bit of a wall. All right. I think it's a lot. Uh, I had it up to 3500 miles of slashed around before I change the oil and it was down to courts. Okay? That is that there's something Hmm, it is there. Something I can do. Is there an additive or something Just seems to me that's an awful lot of old to be using, because the recommended change. Intervals. 5000 right. I would recommend a product called r F seven as in Robert Frank seven. It's a biggie product. You can get it at GM there in Kingsville. And also Bel Air. OK, you could go them shop. They may have it in stock. They should. If they don't, they can get it for you without a problem. It's called R F seven as in Robert Frank, seven. It is an all additive. It's a better way to do it is to have that added with brand new oil, but you can add it with older will, too, But I recommend getting the synthetic oil change done at the same time having the R F seven added. So you may want to call GM and get an appointment with them. Tow do that, But it really is a good quality product. It usually cuts that oil consumption at least in half or not more. And it's a very good product, so I would definitely recommend that. I mean, I did a little research online, and it seems like there's a lot of people have the same problem once these engines get some miles on them, and there was a class action suit with GM on a previous generation. He sanctions and they were saying that the rings had a problem and the direct injectors were having a problem calls in that. Well, valve seals. Also that they have another situation could cause that too. So the rings and the valve seals the R F seven will help okay by making them more pliable, and that makes them seal better. So that's why I believe this R F seven product is going to help you. Okay, well, I'll give that stuff a shot for a couple of rounds and I'll get back to you Let you know that worked as that Sounds Okay. Do you need GM's phone number? Now I live right the brood from him on it right where they are Very good. Sounds good. Appreciate that so much. Thanks for thank you already. Taking a break back in just a few moments. I'm Dave Cereal. It's Saturday morning. And that means you ought to know 8 to 10 right here on CBM from the Broadway show. Dear Evan Hansen. This is waving through a window. I've learned to slam on the brake before I even turn the key before I make the mistake before I lead with the worst of me, give them no reason to stare. Most living a before you slip away, so I got nothing to share. No, I got nothing to say that out. Step.
Taylor Swift Moved The "Evermore" Release Date For Paul McCartney
"And then she said but i found out you were going to put it out on the chance so i moved to jeans. A man she found out we were coming out on the eighteenth so she moved back to the tenth. So i mean you know people to keep out of each other way. He said that the beatles and the rolling stones used to do the same thing back in the day. Oh you want me to play another job. Thanks told you what. I was enjoying listening to simply having a wonderful. We were drinking the stones and say. When's your single coming up. Old june thirtieth joke. We'll put on july thirty just you that more often nowadays big rappers with big beefs like two pac and biggie. They're people used to do that as much as they want to. Squash each other and be dominant. They didn't really want to go up against each other because they had the mutual respect of. Hey we're both making money
Update Alert: Critical 0-day in Chrome
"Speaking of being challenged. The hacker news summed this up by writing attention readers in. You are using Google Chrome Browser on your windows Mac or Lennox computers you need to update your web browsing software immediately to the latest version Google released earlier today, and this was last week. So you know. Even, though that was last Tuesday even my own always sort of sluggish chrome had already updated but. This one just you our listeners may just want to make sure that they're now running eighty-six dot zero, dot forty, two, forty, dot one, one one. However, there's much more to last week's emergency update than what drove it, but we'll start with that. So last Tuesday's released closed five vulnerabilities. Four were rated high severity one was medium and one of those four high severity vulnerabilities was what we're talking about was a zero day that was seen exploited in the wild by being exploited by attackers who are using it to hijack targeted computers so You know that nasty one it was numbered CV e twenty, twenty, fifteen, nine, ninety, nine and what's significant is that it's a heap buffer overflow in free type, which is the widely used open source font rendering library, which is part of chrome but many other things. Various bounty payouts were or will be made for the other four vulnerabilities, but this biggie was discovered in house by Google's project zero researcher Sir J Glazunov. Even. So even though it was found in house, it was subjected to an accelerated seven day public disclosure released deadline because the flaw was under active exploitation and that's the project zero guidelines. You know you get. You get thirty days for things that like, yeah. You gotta gotTa get these things fixed but if it's if it's being used if it is a zero day, you get a week. As it happens, this only took one day for Google to begin pushing the update which they did on the twentieth they found out there was discovered on the nineteenth they had. They were pushing the fixed one day later, which is interesting because it wasn't even really their problem it was in the free type library not in chrome. Sir J immediately. Notified the free type developers who also developed an emergency patch to address the issue. And had it available the next day on October Twentieth And so that's free type two point one, zero, point four. This is significant because free type is everywhere. Without, revealing details of the vulnerability Ben Hawks who is project Zeros technical lead warned via twitter there while the team has only spotted an exploit targeting chrome users. It's absolutely possible that other projects that use any earlier versions of the free type, library and there will be roughly a gazillion might also be vulnerable and are advised to deploy the fix included with free type version two, point one, zero, point four, he tweeted while we only saw an exploit for chrome other users. A free type should adopt the fixed discussed here, and then I've there's he provided a Lincoln tweet I've got the link here in the show notes. And it is part of the stable release of free type again, two point one, zero, point four. So what we do know thanks to what Sir J has shared is that the vulnerability exists in free types function load s bit PNG. So it's load underscore S B it underscore PNG which processes P. Images embedded into Fox. It can be exploited by attackers to execute arbitrary code just by using specially crafted fonts with embedded PNG images, which out to be something that free type supports so in no not just curbed lifts, but you could embed images so and since web fonts can be specified by a web page, and since the browser will go download the font and then render glimpse from those fonts turning a theoretical free type flaw into an active exploit would not be difficult
'Dude, I'm Done': When Politics Tears Families And Friendships Apart
"Now you have likely seen it or felt it yourself. Now A recent survey shows how the nation's bitter political divide is taking a toll on friendships as NPR's Tuvia Smith reports with political polarization hitting a fever pitch. Even decades long relationships are caving under the pressure. It's been happening everywhere on social media, and in really life did straight up there. Dude, I'm done Lose my number that Shimada Davis from L. A. I just hung up on my end, and I proceeded to just block them in every possible way. Joanie Jensen from New York. I hate families, everything but I just don't know and Ricardo de Forest from Florida, there among the many Americans dumping friends over politics. It's one thing to disagree about tax policy, says Davis. But this is deeper. It's about morality and justice. As a black man. He says he simply could not abide his friend of 25 years down playing police brutality. It's like if this is your attitude. I don't respect you. Now I don't because people are really dying. It's also that kind of moral absolute to Jensen, retired professor and sexual assault survivor who cut off a friend of 40 years who was being cavalier about the allegations against Trump's then Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. He was going off flight. Oh, you drank the Kool Aid Cabin on boy. He didn't do anything. I said if this is his core ethics, I don't want that kind of person in my life Conservatives, Of course. Khun B. Justus, quick to spurn the liberals in their lives who clashed with their core values like life or the biggie for Ricardo de Forest Liberty. They sold our country out. This election is about the soul of what America is. He can be a free country. Andy, a socialist state to forest, a 61 year old steelworker cut off several cousins who he calls hard core Trump haters all they can do it. From the races on man bed on man raises, you know, blowing spittle in and veins popping out of their heads Yolk soy Latino, But I guess I'm some sort of horrible races because I like Trump. Ridiculous. We are seeing more political polarization today than at any point in modern history. Jocelyn Kiley, with the Pew Research Center says about 80% of Americans now have few or no friends across the aisle, and the animosity goes both ways. Democrats are a little bit more likely to say they'd end a friendship. But Republicans, maybe a little bit less likely to say they have friends on the other side, so it may not be all that differential. Everybody is doing this Tania Israel The University of California psychology professor runs workshops on cross the aisle conversations, she says. Both sides have big blind spots when it comes to the morality of their own side, and they all view themselves as eminently fair. And right. When I say all these things, I think I found fairly reasonable and see the other side as irrational. Just something wrong with these people. Whether conservatives like the forest or lefties like Joni Jensen, I said, Oh, my God, he really is brain. Wass. Everyone Tanya, Israel says could use a little more intellectual humility were flattening people out, you know, in terms of our view of them and not really seeing the full complexity of people on the other side. It's exactly what Georgia truck driver Jon Langford says his brother who's gay did to him. He went off on the sand. Essentially, I'm a racist and a homophobe. Just because I'm a trump supporter, knowif stands or butts. Ain't completely cut me out of his life, Langford says he's trying to not do the same and toe hang onto his friends. On the other side. I could assume that anybody that supports Biden is a firm believer that it's okay to murder a baby, but I don't From the other end of the political spectrum. Connecticut business consultant Jeff Maren Steen is also straining to stay friends with some trump supporters. Despite all the invective and insults, you know you live They're all the same or these ad hominem attacks. Maren Steen no longer talks to some of them with others. He just doesn't talk politics. It just feels like the healthiest thing for me to do at the moment. But, you know, I suppose the risk is that I'm just retreating into my own information bubble with people who think just like me. Indeed, experts say more conversation, not less is what's needed to heal the
