How Russ Vought Is Standing Up for the Good Guys
"Joining us right now is Russ vote from the wonderful center for renewing America. He's one of the few fighters out there. It's a great organization. Rus welcome back to the program. Thanks, Charlie. I appreciate it. All right, Russ, let's talk about the FBI. You guys are involved in many different ways of trying to stand up for the good guys. Tell us the latest. Yeah, our belief is that we need to have a permanent stand-alone committee and not permanent, but a stand-alone committee outside the normal committees that provides an institution that actually gets at the bottom of all of the deep state agencies starting first and foremost with the FBI, which is weaponized against the American people. And it's not just the elements of the Russia hoax. It's, you know, them being weaponized against parents concerned about CRT at school board meetings. And so we're pushing very hard right now for Republicans to make a commitment to stand this up and have people on this committee like Jim Jordan and Dan bishop and others who will not buckle in the face of a deep state that will be opposed to that kind of oversight. But our hope is that that leads to establishing the full case of the American people. So we have a super majority out there that can inform the next presidential race and then that can also help us know specifically what reforms are needed to break up the FBI as we know it.
Should We Lift Sanctions on Iran?
"Congressman waltz, let's turn to Iran yesterday the president of Iran was invited to the UN. I don't know why he got it. Visa, he came and he threatened Israel in America and held up a picture of the now dead Soleimani who was in Iran in Iraq trying to kill Americans. What did you think about that and what is the law that you propose law that you in the senator of introduced? Well, on top of the supreme leader having to be the sons of all of his inner circle, are going to school in America. They're enjoying student visas. They're hanging out at Harvard and for instance. So it's a broader issue of what we're allowing to come into this country and these thugs that we're allowing to come into the country and the rich elites in Iran. However, the bottom line of the legislation I'm really proud to work with senator Ernst on this is twofold. One, we don't lift sanctions on countries that are holding Americans hostage, trying to assassinate American officials of John Bolton Mike Pompeo, Robert O'Brien and others. And oh, by the way, wounding an attacking American soldiers as they just did in Syria through its proxies. And then two, we have to codify the sanctions on Iran on its financial industry as energy industry. It's inner circle because my fear, my biggest fear of these negotiations is that Biden somehow tries to tie the hand of a future administration, which is unconstitutional and wrong by giving Iran through Russia. Some type of deal that if a future administration said, this isn't in our best interest would tie their hands.

Why Did Sylvester Stallone's Wife File for Divorce?
"It really looks like more than a few relationships are in peril these days. Because we had Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer flavin announced that their marriage is irretrievably broken. That's sure sounds like somebody cheated and look, that's someone could have been sly. Forget his age. Up in the high 70s. Women would still take one with slaw. You kidding me? But you know, look, he did cover up the tattoo of Jennifer's face on his shoulder with the face of a dog. This dog sly wanted named Dwight. And Jennifer put her foot down and didn't want the dog. I can't believe in marriage would blow up for that, but he went and got that tattoo of Dwight over his wife's face. That's hardcore shit. Does the tattoo mean that he caught her cheating on him? And he thinks she's a dog? But that's doesn't work because she's the one who filed for divorce. I'm still trying to get to the bottom of this one, and it's going to be very hard. Slides friends have tight lips. They don't talk.
If You Want an Education, Get the Vaccine?
"Your college Harvard was the first to shut down. Do you know that in the country? I didn't know that. I thought it was Princeton. Is that true that it's well, they're racing for the bottom, but I believe it was Harvard. At least that's what I recall. And they continue. By the way, in order to go to Harvard now, do you still have to be vaccinated? Yes, you do. You do. Yes. Isn't that absurd? You can't get into, you can't attend classes if you're not vaccinated? No. You can't. It's not even a matter if you have to wear a mask. Well, I think a lot of students still wear masks. A lot of them do? Yes. That's actually something that we should talk about. It has become a social fad. I've noticed among people my age to wear masks. Fascinating. I have a relative who's young and she wears an N95. Everywhere she goes. When she's outside walking down the street, she wears it when she's inside, she wears it, when she's at her house, she wears it, and she's at a cafe she wears it. And where does she live? In Los Angeles. And I just think for her and again, I've noticed this among other young people. It's a way. It's an accessory now. It's like wearing sunglasses or a baseball cap or a scarf. An accessory that indicates I care.
How Much of the News You Consume on a Daily Basis Is Fabricated?
"Much of what you are seeing is synthetic fake artificial or fabricated. You see, I think one of the main reasons why the America first parents party is such a threat to the World Economic Forum, such a threat to the Davos crew, such a threat to the Democrat party is because it's real. It's transparent. Even with all of its messiness and blunders at times, it's not concocted in a lab. It's not something that was sprung upon the American people. Bottom up, grassroots, it's authentic. I think a lot of you have a gut feeling that whether what you're seeing on the media, what you're seeing on social media, what you're experiencing, a lot of it feels concocted, it feels as if there's somebody behind it with an agenda that is trying to run a psychological operation on you. Now thanks to declassified documents that were found in the church and pike committee, we know that such efforts such as operation mockingbird and others were deployed by our federal government operation mockingbird was a strategy, a plan by the federal government to work with news agencies to be able to get a one liner or a narrative, implemented into the zeitgeist or the spirit of our times. This is nothing new. But as we are heading a towards a very consequential midterm election, there's an important question that I think we need to ask, which is how much of what we are talking about, how much of what we are seeing is artificial.
DeGrom fans 13 over 5 innings, Mets sweep Pirates
"The Met scored four runs in the bottom of the 8th inning to beat the pirate 7 to three to sweep the four game series and remain in first place in the national league east one game up on the braves Met pitches had 20 strikeouts which tied a major league record and impressed met skipper buck showalter I think the thing I was most proud of the fact we didn't walk anybody No it's Alps for Alps but when you think how hard how hard it is to do and how infrequent has been it gets your attention Jacob de Grom had 13 strikeouts but left in the 6th after surrendering a three run Homer to O'Neill Cruz Mike mancuso New York
Jennifer Horn: MSNBC Is Now the Bottom of the Garbage Can
"By the way, MSNBC, not that it wasn't always just a garbage news channel. It's the bottom of the garbage can. Now, it is awful. They've been in power. I don't know if it's CNN trying to refine their center again or whatever CNN is trying to do, but MSNBC is, I try to listen to it just so as Larry elder says, our listeners don't have to. I try. And it is infuriating because it is all fake news. It's all laughing and snickering and making jokes just like that when you know that these people are seriously so in this safe space. Where they feel like they are not going to be challenged because they have the fix in, meanwhile, people like Mike lindell are getting their lives tossed apart by the FBI. I mean, if you're listening to this on your radio right now, watch out. Maybe the FBI is going to come for your radio next

Glenn Kirschner Will Risk Trump's Threats to Defend Democracy
"Started? What are we running for? Let's do this. Yes, when I say I can't run for office because I can't fundraise. I'm not looking to get a rise out of people who are like, will help you. You know, I created a 501c3 nonprofit national homicide families went through the IRS process that was not fun, but we got our approval. And then I went on exactly one fundraising call and it made me want to hurl and I realized I can't ask people for money even for really worthy causes. I was a public servant step for more than 30 years and I never had to ask one person for $1 in order for me to be a public servant. I can't start now by saying I want to run for office and be a public servant. So money, money, money, money, money, not in my DNA, unfortunately. Yeah. Well, that doesn't mean you still can't be appointed. What am I looking for? Oh, attorney general. Yeah. Okay, I'm just saying, that's not running. Okay, you were the, one of the many of us who you tweeted. So Donnie soprano and the boys got together at the bottom being golf club to sort through some problems. I mean, between this Sopranos scene on the golf course with no golfing going on. And this latest threat, he just said, what did he say? I think there's going to be a big trouble if I'm indicted. I mean, how much more explicit a threat of inciting violence could there be? Yeah, it'll be big trouble and boy will it be good trouble. And it's precisely the kind of trouble this country needs. We can not decline to charge somebody for their crime stuff for fear of how that person's associates or supporters will react. If that impacts our decision, who to indict, then the rule of law is truly dead. Let him threaten violence. Let Lindsey Graham threaten that there will be protests and there will be riots fine. Bring it on because some things are worth fighting for like the rule of law and the future of our democracy. Yep, absolutely. Finally, you tweeted our team justice members have been sending me pictures they took while attending Saturday night's event in D.C.. It was such a pleasure and a privilege to get to share the stage with Stephanie Miller and representative Raskin to share the legal issues of the day in our fight for justice. You just posted a clip of you and Jamie Raskin and we were, what I didn't get a chance to watch it yet, 'cause there was so much good stuff that happened. What was that particular exchange? Do you remember? Yeah, so that clip you and I and representative Raskin were talking about basically the deep injustice that's at play in America right now where the people that Donald Trump lied to and used that lie to urge them to attack the capitol. Those people are going to prison because they obey Donald Trump's commands and they fell for his lies. Donald Trump, the person who is most criminally responsible for the capital attack has a teen time later today. That's a deep injustice that needs to be remedied right now because we add on top of that stuff. The classified documents crimes at Mar-a-Lago, Trump had top secret materials national defense information, which is why this is an espionage act crime being investigated. And information about the nuclear capabilities and defenses of foreign countries and he has not been arrested by the Department of Justice for committing all of those most dangerous crimes that undermines the confidence in our federal government and in our rule of law. These things must be made right by the Department of Justice, not rocket science, just good government. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I feel like what happens is we get overwhelmed. I think you and Jamie were talking about that Saturday night that, you know, in all of this new espionage stuff, you're like, Jamie's over there going, wait a minute. What about our crimes? What about the overthrow of the government in January 6th? I mean, and speaking of which, I mean, there are going to be starting again, obviously the J 6 committee wanted to ask you finally, what did you think of a lot of people speculating on what Zoe lofgren meant and also many Thompson, do you feel like they're saying they have recovered the missing Secret Service tax? Yeah, and I don't think they were ever missing in the first place. Let's just say they were, they were perhaps misplaced or mistaken about them all being permanently deleted or purged. So they clearly have lots and lots of text messages now. So the next logical question beyond what do they tell us about what the Secret Service and Mike Pence and Donald Trump and Mark Meadows were doing on January 5th and 6th and 7th. But why did the machinery of the Secret Service and DHS at least the former leadership of DHS try to lie about it and keep them from being viewed by Congress and inferentially the Department of Justice? That is the next investigative lead. They're going to have to follow. All right, you heard him. Starve stage screen. And LA sexy liberal. Go to sex in the world dot com. Thank you, honey. See you next week. Thanks, Seth. Obviously. I love you
For the Love of the Small Guy
"Big, big corporations are on board and the reason. The reason big corporations are on board, there's a point where, you know, you could say fascism is government corporate collusion. But now we're getting to a point where is government telling corporations how to run their business through environment social governance or are corporations now telling the governments how to run. So it's actually a hard one to tell, but corporations are involved in this because they get not only a seat at the table. They get to set the agenda. And most importantly, just from a bottom line business perspective, they get to crush their competition. And in the book, I use the example of the COVID lockdowns. Small mom and pop retailers crushed independent restaurant, crushed the big corporate chains that go along with the woke agenda. Boosted to the point where the largest transfer of wealth upward from the poor and middle class to the elite class, the greatest creation of billionaires during the during the lockdown. So that is why corporations come in. And another example they love to crushing the small guy. Think
Are We at a Market Bottom?
"Are we at a market bottom? Look, I think one of the big things that you'll always need to keep an eye on. You hear me say this is the vix. The vix measures volatility. It's basically looking at the options market and determining how expensive some of these options are getting. And so by looking at that, you gauge how much fear is out there. To me, what was it in the 20s? Let's see. Somewhere around 24, I believe on Tuesday. Which to me just wasn't enough. Look, you need more fear in order to get yourself over these concerns about what's going to happen when the fed raises rates. Because when the fed keeps raising rates, the mortgage is 30 or fixed now above 6%, they're going to go much higher than that, which is going to have all kinds of other implications for our economy. In Tuesday's training, we saw the vix up around 27, 28. Look, whoopee. To me, I know there's real fear when I see the vix say in the 70s, like 75 or so, which is where it was in March 2020, and I was saying this is overdone. I'm at that point, it was overdone the fear, if you would, the other time we saw so much fear in the marketplace where it wasn't perhaps as crystal clear what was really going to happen was back in October of 2008 and you had the vix then at 89. It took a long time for the vix to come down from pretty escalated levels. But hey, evicts in the 20s or mid 20s or even high 20s, that's not that big a deal.
Charlie Sits Down With Ritchie Herron, a Male 'Detransitioner'
"Joining us right now is Richie herron, he is a fabulous new peace out on human events dot com. A detransitioners perspective awakening and the dream of gender utopia Richie joins us right now. Welcome to the program. Hello, thank you very much for having me on, Charlie. Yes, of course. So Richie, tell us your story. And the age of 25 had begun, identify as trans and at the age of 26. I began medically transitioning a male. I was always male. One of the things I mentioned in the article was about the lies live in within the language. So you might hear people saying things like male female or male female to male, in my case, but in my belief, I just say male. You know, I never went to female. I was always male. I never sweat, no matter what I did to my body, which was I took an androgen blocker at the age of 26, which stopped the testosterone from working in my body. Led I would start estrogen, not long after that. And when I was at the age of 30, just a few days before me 31st birthday actually, I had genital surgery, which I almost immediately regretted. And by general surgery, I mean a penile inversion was scroll graft, which is they remove everything down there, drill a hole in your pelvis, turn it inside out. It sounds horrific because it is, that's exactly what it is. They use these terms like bottom surgery and top surgery, but let's talk about what they are, you know? These are mastectomies and breast augmentation on males and for females, obviously. They have them vasectomies, the hysterectomies, but they call it top and bottom surgery. Just to flip it up a bit. But when you say penile inversion was scroll or graph that really paints a picture of what it is.
Jim Jordan Reacts to DOJ's Subpoenas Sent to Dozens of Trump Allies
"Congressman, another big story we've been following these attacks not just now on president Trump, but also on Trump supporters. We're hearing upwards of 50 FBI subpoenas and warrants issued what's going on here. What can you tell us? In one month's time, Joe Biden has raided the home of a former president. He's taken the phone of a sitting member of Congress. He's called half the country a fascist and extremist. And the Justice Department has went out now based on reports 40 to 50 individuals with various subpoenas for testimony or documents I'm not sure. That is frightening and oh, by the way, in that same time frame, he signed legislation to unleash 87,000 IRS agents who to come harass you the taxpayer. So this is frightening stuff and it needs to stop, but again, I think the country recognizes it for what it is. It's the political nature of the Justice Department. And here's the other important I think fact. So do so many agents because we have now had 14 FBI agents come to our office talk with our staff as whistleblowers about the political nature of everything going on at the Justice Department. So this is something we're committed to try to investigate and get to the bottom of if in fact the American people put us in charge.

NY Times: Polls Often Understate Republican Support
"Here's what happens with polling. There are a couple of places where the polls are overly optimistic about Democrats. Everywhere else, they blow it with Republicans. And the bottom line here is that in a state like Georgia, where Republican voters are more skeptical of mainstream institutions and are less willing to respond to a survey if that's true, says The New York Times, the old gray lady. Polls will often understate Republican support until pollsters figure out how to fix the problem. So listen, there's a real good possibility that we're going to get this country back on November the 8th. We better get it right.

"This story was written to business. Spotlight in two thousand seventeen and does regular behind the nine listeners will know it contains two of my favorite characters. Judy polar who cropping quite a few of my stories in buying the nine we've had on and you just check. We've had the story ninety nine percent as obi accidental guru and julian me an. Interestingly enough these are some of the most popular episode. Is that people who listened to Full this podcast. So there's something about judy in polar. I think it's because they Based on a number of different people. That i've worked with over the years i have a lot of admiration for these two carriages. I'm because although the winning to bend the truth. Bend the situation ben. Circumstances a little bit in order to benefit themselves that essentially very good hearted and nobody ever gets hurt by their actions so very fond of julian. Pull up and i'm an. I like the kind of mischief. They get up to the antidepressant recreation teen. That's the chemists develop under the under the scrim dealership. Judy pula those of you. Who are familiar with nineteen sixties. Romantic comedies will pass recognizes similarity to a rock. Hudson doris statium code lover. Comeback in which the two of them say advertising executives at desperately competing for large contracts and various reasons are rock. Hudson persuades Bribes a chemist. Linus tyler to develop a product for him very very quickly. Cold doesn't matter what the product is. Just be cold because for various other reasons. A whole series of television advertisements has been released on promoting product called victim. Which is supposed to be coming on. The market and wrote has has has to create this product out of nothing at very short notice and vitton vip turns out to be Mint flavored sweet Which has the each suite. Has the effect of triple drive teeny and when by accident bro. Cut some persuades the board of his company to try and out. Everybody have calls gets extremely drunk. So i adopted that story a little bit full at my particular purposes when i wrote the story. The agile approach to software product development. Had become very fashionable on in most large companies. This is not a new approach to product development. The agile manifesto. I think was written in something like two thousand but the concepts and the ideas go much further back to the second world. War facts onto the development of jet fighter planes in the us back in two thousand seventeen think many people really understood. What agile was about is quite easy to pull. The wool is by using the jogging and slight confession. Here i was guilty that once or twice in a couple of meetings people into way looking brain press because you using the right kind of a capillary. So even though i might fund with agile bit i do actually respect it quite a lot on in particular because i like the emphasis on the lead as a as a servant to the teen. The teen is in charge really. I'm not the manager. And i think this really reflects my philosophy of life. I've always seen my boss as being somebody. Who is there to get need the resources the i wanted to do might joke and who can help me to enjoy my job. Because i'm not really good at doing things that i'm not enjoying will things that ident- sink important so the central belief behind agile of the seven leader Corresponds very neatly to the way i like to work. And one little illustration of that in the story Julian paul tate's chemists out to the pub- and next morning show than social graphs of behavior is one picture of andrew dressed in a gorilla costume. Don't sit down the street and the gorilla costume was. I have to say one of the highlights of my career so far when i persuaded my boss the time. And that's what i needed to run. This particular workshop was a gorilla costume and she agrees and allowed me to go to a costume high. Schopenhauer myself a gorilla costume just for this particular workshop. So that's what. I call a really good agility. So that's the end of season three of behind boston line. I think twenty twenty is being a very strange here. But i hope that you have managed to stay safe and the behind. The bottom line was able to help you forget the bad things happening to us. All these short periods of time have a great christmas.

"Casa's in the AD was written for business spotlight in two thousand fourteen and the source of the story. Ready dates back of quite a few years earlier to one of the most significant events of my lifetime which was of course the collapse of the Berlin Wall in Nineteen eighty-nine and then the subsequent unification of East and West Germany and this led to a lot of difficulties for the state in knowing how to manage the resources that were then available to them. Who did these companies? Who did these factors? Who did these buildings belong to? And this was something that wasn't easy to resolve because the owners would fade difficult to to define but Harry which interested me with in particular. The was the fact that there were these really amazing buildings. I'm a nobody reading you who they belong to and but also the problem being that a low end terribly back condition and the state didn't want to take over the responsibility of renovating all of them so it was something that interested me this whole area. I've also always had a sneaking admiration for conman one of my favorite films. A few years ago was the film. Leered CAPRIO in it Catch-me-if-you-can about the conman Frank Abergnail Who started working as a con artist at fifteen looking back in history One of the most successful and fascinating con artists was Victor Lustig who was an austro-hungarian and he was the man who not only managed to sell the Eiffel Tower which is in itself an amazing story and he also actually managed to con the Prohibition Gangster Al Capone out of money. He did of course eventually end up in jail. As of course did Frank Abergnail. I'm so these people aren't always aren't always successful at longtime but what they managed to do in the time when they are operational speak is I think amazing recent times we have of course. The crypto currency scams in particular the most famous of them is one coin set up by apparently a former McKinsey Consultant Rita. Agneta from Bulgaria. And you can hear of an amazing podcast called the missing crypto queen from the BBC. I strongly recommend it. And and on that podcast you can even hear examples of this woman Rita Agneta. I'm taking part all running enormous conferences events in a large large holes. And when she convinces people to invest in a totally fictitious cryptocurrency so. I don't think this is something that's GonNa go away anytime soon. I used to collect but they seem to have now disappeared somewhat because my cybersecurity on my PC's so much better nowadays. But I used to use to receive emails apparently from Nigerian princes asking if I would help them to smuggle money out of Nigeria. I'm and I always used to find these in ice likes these emails because the stories that came attached with them with so entertaining. And you might think of were. How could anybody believe an email offer over three million dollars just simply for providing your bank account details to enable fifteen million dollars to be transferred into it? I'm but police recommended at one time. In the early two thousands there was something like five people sitting in hotel lobbies in London. Every day are waiting to meet people connected with such such scams and there's even a story of a Brazilian bank official who was persuaded to Invest. Two hundred and forty seven million dollars in a non existent airport projects in leg off and the money was never a cupboard and the Bank of course then collapsed so these things have to have real consequences of course apart from the bank which collapsed in. Brazil was a very sad story. I believe from the Czech Republic and an incensed investor in one of these schemes went into a consulate and Nigerian consulate. And shot dead an official there because he blamed them for not making sure that this sort of thing didn't happen. Which was very unfair because the Nigerian government who's to publish regularly full page advertisements in the Economist magazine warning people not to have anything to do with such scams. But I'm this invested. It might not. So yes they can't be quite They can't have tragic consequences but nevertheless I think the stories they. These con artists been really really interesting. One of the things that state which I learnt I have to say from this guy. Victor Listrik who sold the Eiffel Tower He had a the ten commandments for how to be a successful con artist and one of them which I think applies not only. If you want to be a con artist. I think it applies in lots of other situations. In Life. His rule his number one rule was be a patient listener. So I hope all of you will continue to be patient listeners to behind the bottom line and I hope you enjoyed today story castles in the air. I'll be back next week with the story called.

"Steam. Solutions was written for business spotlight in two thousand thirteen and I wanted to try out writing something in the steam punk genre which steam punk is science fiction which matches the world where steam. Everything's run by steam power and I also wanted to try my hand at doing a romantic comedy so freely admit steam solutions is actually quite a sentimental story and I suppose in my head. It was very much kind of film a probably a black and white film. Probably we see Johnson in it And Trevor Howard. Something like that. So it's it's kind of fairly as I said is fairly sentimental but not a tragic love story. It's more of a romantic and hopefully funny love story is also quite so lots of nostalgia in this story which I suppose makes sense. And it's kind of shows London which I would like to have existed And elements it may be did exist when I was little when I was growing up when the films that I watched when I was little but to be honest probably was never really like to certain things in it which did exist. However though for example winkles winkles these little shellfish and I can still remember at Cambridge Circus just near Leicester Square in central London and going with my parents to see some film Neste Square and then afterwards for some reason walking up via Cambridge circus tool shop Spring Avenue and somebody's sending these winkles and these disappeared. Now I'm so I like to imagine what do we like? If if they hadn't disappeared I think that at that time when I saw those This in Cambridge to seconds probably the last one in London but I kind of liked to imagine what it would be like if they were communist as as Donald starbucks nowadays you can also see no salary in the names that I choose. I'm Ernest and Millie. Short for millicent. As the names that you you really see anywhere today and I thought it'd be nice. Actually those names Common what I also wanted to do was to remember a little bit about what it's like going on a date and how or you have to be for example As a as a man about giving if you want your date go well how caffeine you have to be about giving your too strongly on anything. It's much better to save your opinions. Feel self and listen to the opinions of your date so so my experience it. It was advisable not to be too enthusiastic about any actress that you had just seen in particular film or a particular show And it was wiser to keep your opinion to yourself about what they look like how old they were or how good they were on the screen. What you see in the story is my dislike. 'cause I've had one car in my life and I did not she a lot. I did actually do quite a lot in that car But I don't really like them. I think they're an appalling. Waste to resources just in the manufacturing and I think they are rendered for the planet and imagining a world. Without 'cause it's one of the things which I find very easy to do For some reason a lot of people don't seem to be able to manage tool but I think it would be actually really really be a much better world if we didn't have cars. We went also dependent on them. I was also interested in imagining a a very different kind of office world. There is something really bizarre about a lot of the offices that was particularly white collar workers working where we will sit at desks behind computer screen. Sometimes not looking right not looking left the entire day long. An even sending messages to somebody who's just sitting directly across route talking to them dis- always strikes me as something. That's a little bit bizarre. I suppose this because a lot. My work involves actually running workshops and being with groups of people and and I've always found the idea of spending a whole day stuck behind her computer screen to be really really depressing. I'm also very doubtful about the benefits of everybody. Having own mobile phone which they carry with them like security blanket and refer to constantly and cannot step outside the house without having it in their hands and I will admit that I tend to. I tend to do that as well. I consciously have to try to sometimes separate myself from my mobile phone. I F- I think when we when you sit on a trainer pass you see everybody around you Barrett in the mobile phone. There's no interaction tool. That's kind of depressing. Might say well again. The Path people had newspapers and books but somehow there was more of a feeling of companionship. For example with newspapers because you would be reading the same newspapers with if not the same newspaper. The topics the headlines. Whatever would be more or less the same so you want somehow quite so separated from each other because of course on a mobile phone. There's any one of a million things that people can be doing one of the saddest things that I ever seen was in Venice and it was a restaurant and that was a couple young couple and instead of talking to each other all looking into each other's eyes or holding each other's hands or whatever they would just looking at their mobile phones and I suppose it particularly struck me in that context because Venice is the city that you most associate with starting a romantic relationship and it seemed very very sad. Leslie what I also wanted to try to get across with the awkwardness of a first date. And how you're never quite sure whether it's going well and somehow the time seems to be slipping away and you're not quite sure whether you've made any progress or whether you haven't made any progress and then you try to think of ways. In order to extend it and honest is desperately wishing that he had a hand computation. A mobile phones or thirty could look like he was important tied. Something important to do and Millie's thinking what pathetic. Excuse can I come up with in order to invite him to my flat but happy that she be?

"Weight Management was published by Business. Spotlight in two thousand fourteen and in it we see the reappearance of Who Comes up quite regularly in my stories. Nick Samuel who works for a company called top foods and has a idiot boss called Jerry Jones. Jj for short and I'm quite fond of Jj because he represents different elements of All idiot bosses that you've ever worked with over your working life. And last time we saw nick was in full moon and in full moon. I made a little bit of fun of the topic of how companies worked or how companies introduce diversity and in this story weight management I make a little bit of fun of how companies approach the topic of wellness in the company and the whole area of wellness. I have to admit as a boom in something. That is a little bit foreign to me when I was growing up as a teenager or might twenties The idea of going to a gym or fitness studio B totally inconceivable and. I have to say that I find this obsession it. This is an obsession something that I don't really understand Young Men's obsession with looking buff just didn't exist when I was a teenager. Take my teenage self and put down into today's society. I probably never go myself girlfriend about marriage or anything. I sometimes think this obsession with looking buff is not dissimilar to some women's obsession with having the so cool bikini figure and I don't think either them really healthy because what they are about is how you look to outside people. Not How healthy you actually But that's not really an issue that I tackle in weight management and what I think is ally making fun of it. What I think is maybe a little bit more. Sinister is the whole question of company wellness programs. I'm I remember getting really irritated at work. When on the lifts and on the staircase is We started seeing motivational slogans and mottos to encourage us to use the stairs the erosion me so much the dystonia choosing gift an awful lot more than I did previously simply because I resented being told what to do responsibly. Childish I I fully agree. I'm but there is a slightly more sinister element to company wellness programs When the company starts collecting the data that these wellness programs often ask you to provide now in some countries. I think that's pretty well regulated and. That isn't really a problem. But in other countries it can be an issue for example in the US wellness programs. Something like two-thirds of companies are wellness programs. It's six billion dollar business. I'm but what people very often don't realize not the people who participate but also that companies that realize is that the data that these wellness vendors collect is not always secure festival from hackers. These are quite these. Databases are quite often targets for hackers but secondly some of their wellness providers able to sell the data that they collect to for example insurance companies. Which could then have a consequence for an employee if they reveal something in there in a questionnaire but could then have an impact on whether they can get insurance in the future or on their insurance premiums. So I think it's something which is a little bit suspect. I also think these wearables a lot of companies not tech companies touting. Don't chief first of all on purely practical level as they don't always provide accurate data and secondly because it's a formerly of tracking where you on what to and this seems to me and this seems to me with regards data privacy something that we should be really very careful about simply accepting as being what we need and finally of course weight management perks a little bit of fun at the different diets that are available one of the things which I find most confusing about modern life. East which dodging supposed to actually follow so I hope you enjoyed weight management and I hope also that whatever diet you follow not only keeps you healthy it also keeps you having.

What does Tim do? His company deals with problems that nobody else wants. He's kind of. Pr is needed when the wider public should forget about the on attractive qualities of a client for example a politician who's being photographed being friendly with an associate to whom them married depending on the customer's importance. A range of possibilities is available. If it's a president or Prime Minister Tim might get them to launch a missile attack or invade small country to distract public attention. Show strength.

Such as don't is these are the kinds of stories. The tabloid press loves and. That's all a politician. Needs to do to regain favor with the Public Lou. I knew all this. I was surprised at Tim's enthusiastic reaction to my story. Tim Will you're listening to me. What are we going to do? We want to convince the government to build a nuclear power plant near London. But geologist think the area could be flooded particularly with rising sea levels caused by global warming. They think we turning the south east of England into a nuclear waste stand. That would never do onset. Tim Calmly brushing some invisible dust off the jacket of his savile row suits. Of course we can't let that happen. We'd have to move offices and I like to wondering quite not but we don't have to worry about whether the nuclear plant is actually built. Dewey all job is to help you to get government permission for the project to. This is what we do festival the next few days the people at Hatchet were very busy sending on geological report to scientists and climate experts around the world. Make sure you tell them that. It's absolutely essential. They confirm our data. Tim told his team I will help. I asked shortly. It'll just make our situation worse. Just wait and see said. Tim Lit a Cuban Cigar. Eight different experts managed to produce eight different conclusions and one of them agreed with geologists. I think that the Bulgarian professor from the University Safiya was particularly. Critical of the report's findings. But I'm not completely sure English was nearly impossible to understand. Tim was extremely pleased. You see explained over light lunch and cocktails the Savoy. If you tell experts you want one opinion you can guarantee they'll say the opposite. Now what you have to do is destroy the original report from your geologists and put the useful data and quotations from my experts into your new proposal and give that to the government. We moving into stage to somehow. The data went public soon. Newspaper articles television documentaries and youtube videos appeared claiming that global warming was exaggerated. The highlight came when Texas senator claimed in the BBC interview. The Royal Family Will Kremlin agents because of Prince. Charles has interest in the environment. I called Tim at home while the senator was still talking. This is a disaster. I said if nobody believes in global warming anymore than nobody will have any interest in nuclear power by the Champagne his reply your troubles in Ilyasova Stage three starts tomorrow. The next day to British media exploded at this aggressive American attack on the much loved Royal Family. The senator quickly flew back to Houston and the threat of global warming was top news. All three political parties talked about the need for action. Tim called me. Who knows about your proposal for the Nuclear Power Plant Oft Nobody? I said the government asked us to keep it. Strictly confidential excellent said Tim the next day. The leader of the opposition appeared on television. As I was having my breakfast and another example of this government's incompetence is the delay on the decision to build a new nuclear power plant near London. How can the U K deal with global warming if we don't reduce dependence on colon oil safe nuclear technology as the pocket? Our Party intends to follow a soon as we win the next election and I promise by the end of the week the government had accepted our proposal as you can imagine it global policy solutions. We were very happy. The bill from hatchet job was enormous but quite small competitive value of the contract. Tim I said this is all thanks to you. You really are the king of Spin. I pulled him.

Perhaps it would have been a bit risky building. Nuclear Power Plants Sonia London little. I was disappointed. It didn't really matter. The government pay does lots of compensation for the preparation work. We had done sorry or projects being canceled. Tim said as we sat down together to eat chocolate truffle bars around.

"Hi I'm Jane. Scofield the creator of this podcast behind the bottom line. Business isn't really about numbers it's about people behind. The bottom line is a collection of the funny sad and frankly weird events that I've experienced business and which turned into stories to various magazines in each episode. I tell you a little bit about the real life background that inspired me and then I read you the story itself. So let's find out about today story business class. When did you write this story? And what's it about? Business Class was published towards the end of two thousand. Twelve in business spotlight. The central character's name is Taylor but we never learned his first name. We just find out that he's a businessman and he does a lot of travelling on for business over one hundred thousand miles a year And his problem is that he has a very efficient new assistant called Colin Smith who take sits upon himself to implement the company's new travel regulations very very rigidly without informing his boss of what this entails and this results in quite a few surprises for Mister Taylor when he has to fly from London to Tokyo on a business trip. Where did the ideas come from? The ideas for business class really came from the my observation that at during my lifetime air travel has changed from being something that was really special. And where you felt ready pampered. And it was a real pleasure was a really nice experience to something which is about as pleasant as travelling on the London. Underground in the rush hour and this is coming from to To area to two reasons two main reasons for this one is the the growth of of mass tourism and so now simply millions and millions. More people are traveling by air then used to and the other factor which has turned air travel into a nightmare is of course the security issues resulting from from nine eleven after nine eleven in particular and Although I doubt questioned the fact that there needs to be security on airplanes and in order to get onto airplanes what I feel is since nine eleven. Governments have really used this possibility. The fear that we have of a being blown up to implement all kinds of security measures regarding passports and biometric data and so on that We wouldn't have stood for if we didn't have this. Fear of terrorism and a Detroit is it is it just made. It's just made air travel horrible nightmare and I try to avoid it as much as I possibly can now even apart from any ecological issues Which also could a significant is just really really unpleasant. What I thought would be funny to explore is what happens when somebody who's used to first class treatment am suddenly has to deal with the economy class in the how the vast majority of us have to have to travel. And so. That's really what I decided to inflict on the the narrator in the story Mister Taylor and I suppose really here. My emotions are a little bit torn so on the one hand. I really don't like the way that there is this class division between economy and First Class Business Class. I don't really think that that's a nice way for us to to to divide up a people on on our when we're traveling together but I thought it'd be interesting to to use his Hora of what experiences to hold up as a kind of mirror to all of us to say. Hey the way that we are treated when we're flying just isn't right and that we're being treated as as as kind of cattle radi. The other the other thing which I thought is quite funny and has been explored in has been looked at in so films as well is the way that how flight attendants treat people on Planes. That caused the a majority of cases flight attendants very civil and polite and friendly and helpful butts post nine eleven flight attendants have been given this. Yeah this authorized if you like to really bully people if they feel they are stepping out of line or if they just like them I also when I also wanted to to write about is is my act my actual fear of so on the one hand. I think that and flights have have become very authoritarian and and bullying and pushy on the other hand I do accept that passengers are also fairly obnoxious. One of the things which always always used to worry me when I flew as I said I hardly ever fly anymore but one of the things you always used to worry me is people ignoring the ignoring the restriction on using mobile phones and I would get very panicky five sitting next to somebody who needs somebody who is using their mobile phone as we were starting to to go down the runway and so the the ten year old boy who gets hysterical. When about Mr Taylor? Using his phone on the runway is probably actually me and the reason. I sent Miss Taylor off to Japan was. That's the experience that I had all the longest experience. I have flying from London to Tokyo and and that was at a time when flying was relatively comfortable and they fed us nice food and we had a relative nice amount of space. Which of course is gone now but I remember how appalling I felt when I arrived in Nerissa and when the train to the place that we were staying and I thought this was this would I could reflect that in the story and the last element am. I don't want to say too much because I hope you're going to have a little amuse you. In the story. With companies trying to reduce their travel costs regarding hotels and this is actually true story. This happened to a friend of mine in the US. This is something that he actually experienced out as I said. Listen to the story dirty. What happens this active and he didn't end up in hospital my friend but everything else happened exactly as it appears in the story. Yeah so I hope you enjoy it. So That's enough introduction. Let's now turn to the story business class by James Scofield somewhere in my mailbox. I've probably still got the email but you know how it is. When more than seventy emails come in every day you can't read them all so I missed the one with our company's new travel regulations but Colin Smith. My efficient new assistant didn't unfortunately I have to add. My troubles began three days ago. When I arrived at Heathrow airport to flights Tokyo since nine eleven he threw his become only slightly easier to escape from Guantanamo. Bay You need hours to check in go through security and get to the departure gate but business people who travel a lot and I travel a hundred thousand miles a year have special priority checking cards that minimize the time. They have to wait the cards. Also get your air miles that you can use your so you can understand that when the check in assistant handed be back my president gold airline card. It was a shock. I'm sorry sir. The card was cancelled last week by a Mr. She checked her computer call in Smith. I gave him a cool Colin. Why the hell of you can semi President Card? Oh it's the new cost-cutting travel regulations. Mister Taylor all air miles now. Belong to the company. Not The employee The email with all the details was sent last week. I knew you are very busy. So cancel the card for you also books. I was about to fire him when I realized that I would miss my flight. If I didn't hurry I turned back to the assistant checking. Listen I looked quickly to name Tag Ashley. Is there any way you can help me to get to the departure gate a bit faster? I left a fifty pound note on the counter and looked away. When I look back it was gone. And so as Ashley. She returned a minute later with a man pushing a wheelchair. Rajiv can you take Mr Taylor to gate fifty two as fast as possible? He's having problems. Walking Rajiv drove like a mini cabdriver. At least two people dropped coffee as we shot past but he got me to the gate in record time I threw him. Fifty pounds then rushed onto the plane and went into the business class section. Where I received another shock every seat was full. I began searching my pockets for my reading glasses so I could check my boarding card. Can I help you sir? Yes there should be a seat for me somewhere here. The flight attendant took the card then. She looked at me with pity and pointed back to economy class. As I sat down a baby in the row behind me saw the look on my face and immediately started crying. The plane was soon moving down the runway and while the flight attendants were explain this safety regulations. I pulled out my mobile again Colin. Why am I in cattle cloth? I hissed regulations. I tried to tell you but daddy that man's using his mobile we're all going to die shouted ten year old boy.

"Julia. Me was written in two thousand eleven. And it's the first appearance in my short stories of two characters call Julie and Paula. And I've used Julian poll up about five or six times since then in different stories so this is the first time they appeared in this story. Julian Paul there by the way the mid twenties and they work in an office in London. We don't know what kind of what their office does. But they work in an office in London and the office decides wants to introduce hot desk king whereby people are. There's no people don't have a fixed place fixed desk in the office. They can go to wherever. There's a free space but in this particular office to slight variation on that and they go to the places that are assigned to them by Julian Polar and the idea is that the office can company can save money by not having not having to rent so much office what Julian Poll Julian. Polar recognized is that they can actually profit from this situation by fixing where people are sitting in who they're sitting with and they they take advantage of this possibility by you're getting little presents from people and everything goes very well for them and they have a great time working in London. So as you can imagine this lots of possibilities for shows and restaurants and things like that. I do very well for a certain period of time but then unfortunately they make a mistake.
