"Box of neutrals. It's rob James. Singapore grand Prix, it is the celebration of horse Ziggy. I think Ross Braun in the famous 2010. That's our decay Rosberg. Still having a good time. It's not a very good time. No copyright intended. It could be celebrations this weekend, not from Mercedes of course. Well, I could win, I guess, but the championship celebrations are what I'm talking about. Max Verstappen could win his second title in a row. This weekend. Really? How did we miss that in the past couple of weeks where we've had off? Is it really nothing that's happening in the last couple of weeks? So are we in the post? Well, if this were an election, it wouldn't be too close to call. It would be you'd have sort of the megawatt. Different party headquarters. Just anxiously looking to see Verstappen is playing the site of 2022. You'd be crossing over to the Ferrari headquarters and they'd just be depressed. That would be talking to one another. Channel 9 coverage would have sort of a big Italian, I don't know, chef spoon. Just a whack. Matteo, but also the big stiletto I was warming up. Not a big kick. On the way out of a championship, yes, Red Bull Red Bull can't win it this weekend but come with it next weekend I think it's all coming to a rapid conclusion. Don't worry, there are still 6 races to go. We've got a hit through all of them and we'll go through the first one of those this week unboxing neutrals. Oh, you want

"April 2020, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles. Like the rest of the world, swift is locked down because of the pandemic. She can't go on tour, so she's been spending a lot of time in her home studio. She's dubbed the room the kitty committee studio because of all our cats. Like lots of people stuck at home, she's been spending a lot more time alone. It's made her more introspective. Maybe even sad. When you are young they assume you know nothing she's working on a new song called cardigan. As she raps recording the refrain, she sits back and reflects on her own deliberately ambiguous words. She sings about being young and people assuming you know nothing. It could be about how adults perceive teenage love. Or it could be about her deal with borchetta when she signed away her masters all those years ago. Either way, it's a return even if temporary to an earlier iteration of swift. The pounding electronic beats of her last pop album are gone. Instead, she's using a delicate piano loop, echoing drums and a wispy synthesized sound. Sweat pauses, and then picks up the banjo. She starts playing something else. Or rather something old. It's love story. Her early breakout hit. But this time, when she sings it, she's mastered her vibrato in a way she couldn't as a teen. Her voice is filled with the nostalgia that comes when looking back on something after a long time has passed. Much of the song and its arrangement sounds the same as the original. But it's swift in her voice that have changed. Swift takes her hands off the strings and sits back to think. When Braun asked her to sign an NDA she bogged. What he was asking didn't seem fair. Now, she's not sure of how to move forward. But it's the middle of a global pandemic. The world seems so upside down. She's changed, and her music's changed. She's banking on her fans remaining loyal. She figures, what the hell? May as well go for it. A few months later, she releases a surprise album of new songs called folklore. And it has the biggest ever opening day on Spotify for an album by a female artist. Swift used to rail against Spotify, but now she's huge on the platform. Cardigan gets 7.7 million streams the day it's released. The biggest first day for any song in 2020. And that makes her wonder whether fans would buy rerecordings of her own songs. No, she thinks. They've already bought those songs more than a decade ago. Summer, 2020. It's sunset in Bel Air, Los Angeles. Scooter Braun is sitting outside at the palatial home of Stephen royer. The president of shamrock capital. It's an investment firm that began as the money manager for the Disney family. COVID is a threat, so the two men are sitting 6 feet away from each other. Braun adjusts his mask. Steve, thanks so much for meeting me in person. And I just really wanted to talk this out with you one on one. My pleasure scooter. Sorry we can't host you inside the house. You know, COVID and all Ron nods and cuts to the chase. Look, I've got an asset, I believe you might be interested in. I know you've been doing a lot of investing in the media and entertainment spaces. Yes, we have a whole fun dedicated to content. And we're always interested in assets that can generate cash flow. Braun grins, his eyes crinkling above his mask. Well, how about Taylor Swift's masters for our first 6 albums? Royer raises his eyebrows. Um. That's quite the proposition, but didn't she say she was rerecording those? Listen, there's a big difference between saying you're going to do something. And actually doing it. These masters make 15 million a year. Okay, I'm listening. What's he asking price? 300. $300 million is close to what Braun paid when he acquired them from big machine last summer. But if she does rerecord her songs, that presents a sizable risk to assets profitability. Why would we take that risk? But it's not just the masters. Think of the videos and the merch. You'd probably own the rights to the artwork of her first 6 albums. And the videos of those first 6 albums. That is really consistent revenue for your firm. Nods thoughtfully. Let me talk to my people. We'll get back to you. As bronn leaves, he's thinking about how relieved he'll be to unload swift's masters onto shamrock. Sure, those masters made good money for him, but now at least he won't be dogged by swift's fans, and the allegations that he was just another industry guy controlling a female artist destiny. In effect, she forced his hand. He had to do this to protect his own reputation in the music industry. Unlike Braun, neither reuter nor his investment firm has any personal history with swift, so they're not going to face the same backlash as brawn. Mindful of the hostility between swift and brawn, royer plans to make overtures to swift to smooth things over. Though he'll hit quicksand, pretty fast. October 2020 in Los Angeles. Swift is at home in her studio on a video meeting with her producer Jack Antonoff, who's an upstate New York. They've been talking regularly and sending each other's song snippets. She's been working on creating more new music. An email has come in. It's from a group called shamrock capital. Hold on, Jack. I need a sack. Swift reads the email. The investment company is informing her that they've bought her masters. Oh my gosh, someone bought my masters. What? Who? Some group called shamrock capital. Is that good news? I think so, at least this means scooter doesn't own them anymore. Uh, wait a sec. There's more. Swift keeps reading. Shamrock is inviting her to partner with them. Wait, they're telling me I can put up some money and become an investor in my own masters. So I wouldn't own them outright, but I'd own a small percentage in them. That seems kind of weird. Uh, sorry, Jack. I gotta go call my lawyer. Her lawyer wants to immediately loop her in on a call with her business manager. Together, the three of them reach out to shamrock.

"Thanksgiving 2019. Swift is in her New York apartment with close friends, hosting a friendsgiving dinner. Supermodel Gigi Hadid passes the Brussels sprouts to fellow model Martha hunt. Queer eye chef antoni porowski sits across from them. Swift sips from her wine glass and stands up. All right, I'm going to get the pie. All right. All right, bath time. Swift walks into the kitchen. She left her phone on the counter in an attempt to enjoy dinner. But she can't help but notice when it lights up with an email, and the sender is Scooter Braun. Swift quickly scans his email. She'd reached out after she'd heard about the death threats. Now, he's saying he wants to begin negotiations for her to buy back her masters. Swift keeps reading. Before we share any financial records, I'd like you to sign an NDA saying you will not speak about me ever again unless it's positive. Swift frowns. Braun wants her to sign a document that would force her to keep quiet forever. Before she bids for her own work. And he doesn't even quote her a price. To swift, this doesn't seem like a genuine offer. Just then, her friend Gigi walks in. Hey, are you okay? Swift tries to smile. Yeah, it's just work stuff. She puts down her phone. The smell of baking apple pie wafts through the kitchen as she carefully takes it from the oven. As she goes through the motions of being a good hostess, her mind whirs as she calculates how best to respond to brawn. Finally, she lands on something

"Are selfish, cruel, evil. What? What's happening? He scrolls down. I'm shattered, how can this be happening in 2019? Is this the real world we live in, a male dominated world with no excuses, shame on you? And then, he notices something. A lot of the tweets are linking back to a Taylor Swift message that she just posted. He clicks on her tweet. It accuses borchetta Braun and big machine of blocking her from performing a medley of her older songs at the upcoming American Music Awards, or to use them in a Netflix documentary about her. Swift tells her fans borchetta and Braun would only allow her to perform her songs if she agreed not to rerecord copycat versions of her songs next year. Or to even speak negatively about them. And her infuriated fans are circling brawn. Braun can't believe that swift is weaponized her millions of fans. He's outraged and feels her actions are unprofessional and reckless. The fans are barraging brawn and borchetta with tweets, demanding that they give Taylor back her masters. It's borchetta. Scooter, we got a situation here. No kidding. My phone's on fire. Yeah, mine too, but it's not just the tweets. Our offices have been getting tons of threatening phone calls and emails. Ron leans forward in his chair. Oh no, you mean like death threats? Yeah. My employees are scared for their lives. I'm about to shut down the office for everyone's safety. I'm really worried someone's going to bomb the place. Oh, man. I'll do whatever you gotta do to keep everyone safe. We have to get in front of this. Let's have the publicists start working on a statement. We need to fight back through the media. I can't have Taylor ruining my public reputation. All right, let's do it. Talk later brother. Borchetta hangs up. Braun sits quietly for a moment. Stunned. And then, he reads a new Instagram DM. Hi, why don't you just die with your children? I'll buy a gun tomorrow and shoot you all in the head. Holy. This is serious. Brawn is terrified. These swift fans are threatening his life. All because of something she tweeted. He has to do something to make all this stop. So a few days later, he posts on Instagram and begs swift to meet with him. Borchetta and Braun release a statement, making it clear that swift can perform her songs at the American Music Awards. Swift got what she wanted by going public with her frustration. Though she probably didn't expect fans to send death threats against borchetta and brawn and his family. Braun wants to make amends, that's clear, and that puts swift in a tight spot. She worries that if they meet privately in strike a truce, it will appear that she's caved to a bully. She has to decide what to do, and soon, because as long as things are unsettled, the swifties are an unpredictable force.

"In the last episode is Taylor Swift grew increasingly self confident. So did her discontent with her label, big machine. So she jumped ship for universal. That was a gut punch for borchetta. Scooter Braun saw an opening and approached borchetta with a deal to buy big machine. And with that purchase, came swift's masters from her early albums. In this episode, swift fights back by deploying her own, varied dangerous weapon. The swifties. And brawn pulls out all the stops to protect the 300 $1 million asset. He just bought from borchetta. This is episode three. Revenge of the swifties. June 2019, Chicago, Illinois. A group of friends are at a bar watching a baseball game. The news interrupts the coverage. Taylor Swift is blessing manager to the star Scooter Braun, Braun, who manages Justin Bieber just acquired the rights to her entire catalog up through 20 17s reputation. In a poster tumbler, she called the sale, my worst case scenario, swift says she's been bullied by Braun for years and signs up. One guy in the group slammed down his beer and shakes his head. Oh, come on. Taylor Swift's been bullied. She's always playing the victim. His girlfriend intervenes. Hey Jack, that's not fair. I think she's genuinely upset that this guy bought her songs. It's like he owns her. Their friend interrupts. Look, she made a mistake and got into business with someone without doing her homework, but how long does she have to pay for that? For Christ's sake, Jack, she was just a teenager. You would have done the same damn thing. I don't know. I just have a hard time feeling sorry for Taylor Swift of all people. I go cry me a river on your private jet. The girlfriend takes a sip of her beer. Either way, I hope she does rerecord her old stuff. Wait, wait, what? Oh, you didn't see that? Kelly Clarkson tweeted that Taylor Swift should rerecord her old songs. Kelly Clarkson, a former American idol winner turned daytime TV host, posted on Twitter that swift should rerecord all the songs she doesn't own the masters to. Just approve a point. That's so weird. Well, I'd stream them. Kelly Clarkson's suggestion is not really that unheard of. In 2018, pop singer JoJo rerecorded her early albums because of a fight over the masters with her former label. Def Leppard released what it called forgeries of its hit songs while fighting with its label. And in the 60s, the Everly brothers rerecorded versions of their recent hits when they signed to a new label. And that is something labels don't want repeated. To deter artists from doing this, now contracts usually have clauses barring artists from releasing rerecorded work from its initial release for three to 5 years or more. Swift's exclusivity clause isn't up for more than a year. Scooter Braun doesn't know yet whether she will rerecord or how he'd respond if she does. But he figures he has some time. But so does swift. And she's not wasting any of it. August 2019, scooter bronze office in Beverly Hills. Braun sits behind his desk in panic mode. He's got his elbows on his knees and he's running his hands through his cropped hair. Swift is just announced on Good Morning America that she was going to rerecord her old songs. And that poses a serious problem for Braun. Hello? It's one of bronze investors, a guy who put in big money to help Braun by swift's masters. Scooter, what's this I'm hearing about Taylor Swift planning to rerecord our old songs? Oh, don't worry, that's nothing. It's just taught. It better be just talk. We paid $300 million for those masters. Braun shifts uneasily in his seat. The truth is that if swift does rerecord her old albums, it poses a big problem, and this investor knows it. He plows ahead. Look, she's already proven that she has an incredibly loyal fan base that's the size of a small country. If she re-records those songs, he greatly diminishes the value of our investment. Listen, it just doesn't make any sense for an artist as big as Taylor to rerecord her old material. She'd just be wasting time. Trust me, she'll be focused on making new stuff. Look, I'm expecting these recordings to make us 15 million a year. If they don't, I'm going to be severely annoyed. And my attorney will be making that extremely clear to you. Got it? Braun leans back in his chair and tries to stay calm as he calculates how things might play out. Swift might not follow through on her threat, but that's unlikely given that she's told the whole world that she wants to rerecord her masters. Her contracts exclusivity clause is up in November of 2020. That means he has a little over a year to milk this investment for all its worth. Maybe even find another buyer. But for now, the future value of bronze purchase is under threat. So he decides to fight back the only way he thinks he can. By choking the songbird. What swift doesn't know is that Braun still controls her right to even

"2018, Tribeca, New York City. It's early morning in swift is at home, getting ready to make a big announcement. But first, she types a message to borchetta. Scott, I hope this finds you well. Since communication ran dry on our negotiations, I've done what I told you I would do and gone out exploring other options. Owning my masters was very important to me, but I've since realized that there are things that mean even more to me in the bigger picture. At the big machine offices in Nashville, borchetta is reading the message. I also saw a rare opportunity to affect positive change for a lot of other artists with the leverage I have right now. I wanted to tell you first that I'll be signing with Lucian. Holy. Taylor's signing with universal. He reads on. I still view you as a partner in friend, and I hope you feel the same, sending you a hug in my most sincere gratitude and so much love, Taylor. Borchetta buries his head in his hands. But back in New York, swift is elated. This is a huge day for her. She's signing with Universal Music group, and as part of the deal, going forward, she's going to get to own her masters. Borchetta digests the news slowly. He thought this was coming. But still, it stings. He probably feels like he discovered swift and mater who she is. For her to leave. It almost feels like a divorce. But it poses a financial dilemma for big machine too. Swift was their biggest artist. The label doesn't have swift anymore, but it does still have her masters for her first 6 hit albums. And even without swift, that still makes the label a very valuable asset. One that an astute businessperson in the music industry. Is very interested in. Fall 2018 in the big machine offices in Nashville. Scott borchetta is sitting at his desk. His hair shows more gray than when swift side with him more than a decade ago. But he's kept the same country music executive look. Jeans, a black shirt, and jacket. In walks guest, mega talent agent Scooter Braun, a 30 something in a T-shirt and bomber jacket. Hi, scooter, great to see you. Thanks for coming to Nashville. Well, I figured I needed to come and find out what you guys are all about. Or shed a spreads his hands. Here we are. The best independent country label and publishing company in the world. We're doing a 100 million in revenue and going strong. Even without Taylor, look, we still have the masters for our first 6 albums, which bring in a lot of money as you know, and we've got artists like Florida, Georgia line, Cheryl crow, lady a, and they're nothing to sniff at. Braun nods, impressed. Well, let me tell you a little bit about Ithaca holdings. That's bronze company, which is even more impressive than big machine. It too has high profile artists like Drake and stakes in music technology. More importantly, though, one of the world's biggest private equity firms, the Carlyle group, is behind it. And that opens bold new horizons. We're launching a film studio where acquiring another music publishing company, and we've started a music tech investment fund. We have stakes and tons of other management firms, and you know, all of that creates synergy, we can negotiate even better terms on any new deal. Ron looks at borchetta, who knows he's just been one up. Look, Scott, I think you've got a great business here with big machine. And I'd love to bring you into the Ithaca holdings fold. What do you say? Borchetta is half been expecting this. He and Braun have been talking a lot recently about how they might work together. But now, Braun is saying he officially wants to acquire his record label, which means owning its current roster and swift's old masters. Or shadow leans back. Scooter, I'm flattered. Let's talk specifics. I don't want to leave the company I built. I'm looking for a strategic partner who can help me and my artists get to the next level. And I think that's us. I don't want you to go anywhere. I want you to stay independent. Keep running your label just as you have been. We're positioned to lead the next generation of the music industry and I want you at my side. Or shed a smile. He stands up and extends his hand. Scooter, you got a deal. The pair shake on it. Under the deal they hash out, bruschetta will take a stake in bronze company. In exchange, brawn is going to own big machine, and the masters to swift's first 6 albums. Taylor Swift doesn't know a thing about this deal. But when she learns she's going to have to battle both Braun and borchetta for her masters. She's furious. But the young pop superstar has an ace up her sleeve. A negotiating tool even the mighty Scooter Braun can't match. The most powerful fans in the entire music industry.

"February 2016, the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles. Swift sits front row at the Grammy Awards and a red crop top in magenta skirt. Her hair is cut in a sleek straight bob, no more loose country curls. She's waiting nervously to hear the results of album of the year. The announcer opens the envelope. And says two magic words Taylor Swift? Swift's mouth drops open. She stands up and hugs her friend, Selena Gomez. She embraces producer Jack Antonoff, who made the majority of this record with her. And then she strides onto the stage. I want to thank the fans for the last ten years. And the recording academy for giving us this unbelievable honor. I want to thank she begins by thanking her collaborators. And then, she gets serious. And as the first woman to win album of the year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to all the young women out there, there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success. Or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame the crowd cheers. It seems like she's talking about rapper Kanye West, and the way he disturbed during the 2009 VMA awards, a flap which he claims made her famous. And then there was the hugely public scuffle over whether she agreed to allow Kanye to use a lyric in a song about her. Swift keeps going. But if you just focus on the work and you don't let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you're going, you'll look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there. And that will be the greatest feeling in the world. Thank you for this moment. It's a powerful speech. And it's telling that swift does not once mention borchetta, or thank her label. And while many assume it's addressed to west, it could also be about borchetta. 1989 goes on to become not only the most successful album of her career, but one of the top three albums of the entire decade, it sells 5 million copies in its first 9 months, making it the fastest selling album since 2004. But even though Taylor Swift is riding high. It's all about to come crashing down. August 2nd, 2016, Nashville, Tennessee. There's been a lot of media attention lately, so swift is lying low in her apartment. She's lounging in bed with one of her cats on a large white duvet. Just then, one of her cat stands upright and tucks her ears back, making a hilarious expression. She snaps a video of the cat standing up on its hind legs. She's been trying to stay offline lately, but this clip is too cute not to post. What's going on? You feeling less looking like a cat and more like a squirrel today? Mmm um. Yep. She adds it to her Instagram stories. Swift's public image has been at an all time low this summer. There was a controversy over whether swift agreed to allow Kanye to use a lyric in one of his songs. In June, Kim Kardashian said that her husband Kanye had called swift for approval of the lyric. When swift denied it, Kardashian uploaded a tape clip of the call that made it sound as though swift had heard west song and didn't object. Kardashian posted it with the emoji of a snake as if to say that swift was that snake. And then, well, then it felt to swift like the whole Internet turned against her. Anonymous masses calling her a liar and saying that she's playing the victim. So she's been trying to stay off social media and out of the headlines. But just as she looks for her kitty on her Instagram feed, she sees a picture from Justin Bieber. She reads the caption Taylor Swift what up? It's a black and white FaceTime screenshot of Bieber, with Scooter Braun and Kanye West. Swift's heart sinks. There's a lot going on in this one screenshot. The messaging is not that subtle. It signals that Bieber, who she thought of as a friend, is taking sides, Kanye's. And west is now a client of brawn. Swift throws her phone down. She's furious. These guys are ganging up on her. But worst of all, borchetta hasn't publicly spoken out in support of her. And that steams her. Inside the big machine offices on music row in Nashville. Hey Scott? Hey Taylor, how's it going? She holds up her phone, which is open on the Bieber Instagram post. Did you see this? Not good. Uh huh. That thing still kicking around? Yeah. Yeah, it is. I just wish it would all go away. We'll share a nods. I get that. So what did you want to talk about today? Well, I've been thinking about what's next. This is my last album on our deal. After her next record, swift 6 album deal is up at big machine. This means she'll be able to sign to another label, or renegotiate it, big machine. Right. And you know, we'd love to have you stay at the label. This is home for you. Swift wriggles in her seat slightly. Well, I'd be open to exploring that possibility, but in order to resign, I need my master's back. Taylor, I just can't do that. You know I'm exploring selling big machine without your masters, this label is worth a whole lot less. And I need to take that into account. Swift begins to cry. Look, this is the worst summer of my life. I just want to be able to get my master's back and move forward. Why is this so hard for you to understand? Well, we can keep talking about it. And maybe now is not the right time. Swift is facing the fact that her reputation is in shambles. And she has no idea how to mend it. She decides to disappear from public view. Swift will use this time to gather her strength, she'll use this sense of shame as fuel to go through a painful metamorphosis. And when she returns to the stage, her lyrics will be weapons and her new persona will be unrecognizable.

We're shadow leans against the sound board and nods along. Swift and Chapman watch nervously. They haven't shown it to anybody else yet. The song ends. Or shadow raises his head to speak. The song is brilliant. Great melody. But the way it's recorded, the production just doesn't match it. What do you mean? It needs more of a pop sound. Swift nods. She knows he's right. She trusts poor shed his ear. Let's try again. Chapman and swift get back to work. A few days later, swift plays it for borchetta again. But the results are even worse. Swift exhales. The chess isn't working. She needs a pop sound. She's written so many hits with Chapman, but he's a country guy. So she turns to borchetta. What she's about to ask, pains her. It's consequences will effectively end her professional relationship with Chapman, who has stood by her from the jump. Hey Scott, would you call max? Max Martin, the huge Swedish pop producer behind hits by Britney Spears and Katy Perry. Borchetta picks up the phone and call Sweden. But this will be the last time Scott borchetta is useful to swift. Because as she moves into the pop mainstream. She gets even bigger. When she was young, trying to get her career off the ground, she needed borchetta and his country connections. Now, that's not as important. Swift is ready to move into a new genre and on to the next level. And that's going to be a major problem for Scott borchetta.

"Taylor Swift. September 2009, Radio City Music Hall in New York City. It's the MTV Video Music Awards, and the venue is packed. Swift stands on stage in a glittering gown. Her hair pinned back in a chic updo. She's just won the award for best female video for you belong with me. It's a huge deal. She's the first country artist to win a VMA. She clutches the trophy with her right hand and holds the microphone in her lap. Thank you so much. I was dreamed about what it would be like to maybe when one of these someday, but I never actually thought it would have happened. I think country music, so thank you so much for giving me a chance to win a VMA award. Just then, rapper Kanye west jumps on stage from his seat in the front row. His black leather T-shirt is open to the navel, and he's wearing giant aviator sunglasses. He grabs the mic from script. Taylor. I'm really happy for you. I'm going to let you finish. Swift talks her hair behind her ear. She doesn't know where this is going. Maybe west is going to make a special presentation to honor her for being the first country artist to win. But then, west points into the crowd and keeps going. But Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time. Now, it's Beyoncé's turn to look confused. She was nominated in the same category as swift. Swift is still standing on stage. A bewildered expression covers swift's face. One of the best videos of all time. With that, he shrugs and hands the mic back to swift. Swift's mouth is open in shock. The crowd starts booing. Any trace of a smile is vanished from swift's face. MTV cuts to commercial. The 9 million people watching at home are stunned. Swift is horrified. She thinks the crowd thinks she doesn't deserve the award. She's crushed. She goes backstage and cries. Then she pulls herself together. She has to perform in 5 minutes. She changes out of her dress, pulls her hair down and runs to begin her song. But swift is a consummate professional. Her performance goes down without a hitch. She's upset she's going up and even though west later apologizes the fiasco makes major news. Even president Obama remarks on the incident calling west, a jackass. For swift, it's a pivotal moment in her career. Thanks to west's interruption, more people than ever know who Taylor Swift is. But she starts to think maybe she can go even bigger. And that means leaving country behind to go mainstream. And she'll gamble her fan base to do it.

June 2010, Foxborough, Massachusetts. Swift is backstage and her dressing room preparing for the show. She's been touring constantly, selling out arenas. By now, swift is a bona FIDE star. It's a 16 year old from Canada, with long hair that swoops across his forehead. Teenage girls love him, and he's her opening act. Hey Taylor, good to see you again. Justin, thank you so much for playing. It's Justin Bieber. The guy brawn spotted singing in a church competition. Earlier this year, he released a hit song, baby. He's a pure pop act. She's been recording a new pop country album titled speak now. She's crossing over into pop and that's part of why she wanted Bieber to tour with her. Taylor I want you to say what's up to my manager scooter. Scooter Braun extends a hand to Taylor Swift. He's got a solid build and square jaw with a short, dark beard. Hey Taylor, nice to meet you. Just then, a familiar face pops his head around the door. Scotty. It's borchetta. Swift jumps up and gives him a huge hug. Borchetta turns to brawn. Scooter, I heard a lot about you. I'm Scott. A pleasure. While Bieber and swift catch up, Braun and borchetta start talking. In Braun borchetta sees a younger version of himself. Someone who's ambitious, who wants to make it big. Ron isn't even 30, but he's already more than just a manager. He just started a venture capital fund to invest in startups. Braun is a businessman, and this meeting is going to be the beginning of a very important relationship with borchetta. One that puts swift. On war footing. October 2010 Taylor Swift is just released her third album, and it's a hit. Even as overall CD sales decline, swift sells more than 20 million albums in 5 years. More than any other musician in that period. She's making $45 million a year by the time she's old enough to drink. But when it comes time to work on our fourth album, she's not content to settle. Swift starts to think, maybe she can go even more pop. Not just pop country. It's time for her to grow as an artist. And she also wants to reach an even bigger audience. She knows her country music fans are loyal. They'll follow her into a new

"Late 2006, Taylor Swift stands in front of a studio microphone at a drab gray walled radio station. Hey, I'm Taylor Swift and you're listening to the morning drive with Mike and Joanna. Q one O four, your number one for country. Swift takes the headphones off her head and turns to the host. Was that good? That was perfect. Thank you. Trust me, you'll be hearing that a lot on the radio. Oh, I can't wait. Just so long as you play my song. You betcha. Swift's mother Andrea steps in. Taylor honey? It's time for us to get going. Sure, mom. They walk out of the studio, head for the car. Swift and Andrea drive to the next stop. Despite swift's radio offensive to promote her self titled debut album, it only sells 39,000 copies in its first week. But swift isn't giving up. She's doubling down. She throws all her energy into promoting the record to boost sales. Time is at a premium, so she arranges to attend high school remotely. Her days are packed with radio stations, interviews, and performances in shopping malls. When she's not promoting her record in person, she connects with her fans through a new website called MySpace. She gets about 600 emails a day, but she tries to answer everyone. With messages like this. OMG, thank you so much. I'm so excited for you to hear the album comes out in October. It's hard work, but swift's determined to make her self a success. And in time, her loyal followers, lovingly cultivated by swift. Will become a force for her. And her family is all in. They moved south so she could be a country music artist. They don't pressure her. She does that herself. She and her mom are on the road a lot. Going from one radio station to the next. She feels like she has to make this work. All right, we're at the next station. Thanks, mom. A year after swift's first album is released, it eventually reaches number 5 on the billboard 200. It's been a slow burn. But swift's career is about to take off like wildfire. Before long, the album has sold millions of copies. It's a great success for swift and borchetta. New labels usually struggle, but swift's success establishes big machine and borchetta as a team, a force to be reckoned with. It seems smooth sailing. Over the horizon, however, is a powerful force. The man who will one day try to claim Taylor Swift's entire empire. Whether she likes it. Or not. Early 2007, Atlanta, Georgia, a twentysomething with dark hair and a baseball cap is sitting in front of his computer watching YouTube videos. Scooter Braun is a former club promoter who works at Jermaine dupri's label, so so deaf. He's doing research for an artist on the label when a related video pops up that catches his eye. It's a young kid wearing a white shirt and black tie. He's performing in a church singing competition. Ron leans closer. This kid has a crystal clear voice. He's performing a note perfect rendition of a neo hit. But it's the kids vocal style that catches bronze ear. He sings with such emotion and natural ease. Braun is instantly amazed. He needs to know more about this kid. There's talent there. And Braun, once in. So he gets in touch with this young kid. His name? Justin Bieber. Braun even flies Bieber in his mom out to Atlanta. Braun decides to become his manager. And like swift, Bieber will soon become a teen sensation too. And their paths will meet in the most unlikely of circumstances.

"And has a net worth of $570 million. Scooter Braun is the top music manager in the world, and one of a very few to become a celebrity in his own right. Taylor Swift and Scooter Braun's feud is a proxy for the furious battles over ownership happening all across the music business right now. From streaming to the rise of music catalogs. The battle is being waged mostly in boardrooms, but swift also enlists her forces from social media. Not only is this a fight between the powerful pop star and manager for a $300 million catalog. It's a fight that could reshuffle the entire business model of the music industry. And powerful forces are picking sides. This is episode one. On the outside. November 2004, Nashville a young Taylor Swift tucks her blond curly hair behind her ears and clears her throat. She's only 15, but she looks older than that. Her piercing blue eyes are fixed on her guitar. This performance is the most important of her life so far. She needs to get it just right. I hope you like this. I worked real hard on it. Swift strums her first chord and begins to sing. But she's not in a dimly lit nightclub or one of the karaoke bars she performed in as a kid. Today, she's in one of the offices of Universal Music crew. Sitting across from her is Scott borchetta. He's a record exec in his early 40s. He's had a decent career, but no huge hits. Still. It's a big deal for swift to get a meeting with someone at universal. The lyrics are honest. Confessional. And it's surprisingly well written for a teenager. Ever since she moved a few years ago from Pennsylvania to Nashville. Swift has been making a name for herself. She wants to be a star. Now. Shadow applauds and swift's mom, who was also in the meeting, beams at her daughter. That was great. Just great. Who did you co write that with? Thank you. Oh, that one was all me. Raises his eyebrows. He'd assumed one of swift's more experienced collaborators had helped her. Great songwriting is key for country music success. He's intrigued. Wow, that's very impressive. And do you play any other instruments besides guitar? Yes, I play piano ukulele and the banjo. Bruschetta nods. Another point for swift. He looks carefully at her. He first heard of her when he received her demo. Along with the music, the package included a picture of swift modeling in an abercrombie and Fitch catalog. She was holding a guitar and wiping a tear. The picture projected this all American image. One that could work for country. Yeah, we're shadow things. She's the whole package. He thinks for a second. Teenagers aren't stars in country music, let alone teenage girls. Most of the listeners are much older and a lot of them are men. But swift looks older than she is. So he might be able to pass her off as a twentysomething. Plus, she's a great songwriter. It's a risk from a marketing perspective. But he loves her music. He thinks she could be a star. Here's what I want to do. I want to sign you as a solo artist, not just a songwriter. Swift clasps her hands together. A grin spreads across her cheeks. This is exactly what she's been hoping for. But borchetta is not done. But I don't want you to sign to universal. I want you to sign my own label. I want to put the music back in the music business. Swift looks at her mom excitedly. They're both thrilled, they can hardly believe this is happening. Oh, that sounds amazing. So what do we do now? Well, I haven't got the label set up yet. I'll reach out to you when I do. Over the next few days, swift weighs her options. Even though she's only a teen, she's got a clear idea of what she wants from her career. She already has a development deal with a major label. But they want to wait until she's 18 to break her as a solo artist. Borchetta wants to launch her career right away. So, she does what any teenage girl would do when facing a monumental decision. She writes about it in her journal. This last week was crazy. So capital records doesn't think I'm ready, but there's Scott borchetta, and he's so passionate about the project. I think that's the way we're going to go. I want to surround myself with passionate people. She calls borchetta. Hi Scott, it's Taylor. I just want you to know I've made up my mind and I'm waiting for you. She wiggles out of her old contract and borchetta officially launches his own label.

"Or shadow looks up and breaks into a grin. Taylor, great to see you. I was just listening to a new demo. It's pretty good. Swift smiles tightly. She's not interested in talking about anyone else's music today. She settles into a chair, or shadow twirls his mustache as he talks. But it's no shake it off, am I right? Swift's song shake it off won three Grammy nominations this year, including best pop performance. The song was also a break from her country music sound. No soothing acoustic guitar, no fiddles. Sheik is all horns and hard edges. Like her music, she's changing too. She's not the pliable wannabe that she was ten years ago when borchetta discovered her. She's come into her own. And she wants control of her destiny. Moving to pop really worked out well for us. Yeah, that's partly what I wanted to talk to you about. She'd had to fight with borchetta over her desire to go from country to pop. But right now, she's here to talk business. Given all the success we've been having, I wanted to bring up the possibility of getting back my masters. Borchetta puts the headphones down. Straightens up and looks at her. His expression serious. Masters are the original copies of an artist's work, whoever owns the master recordings, also owns the very lucrative copyrights associated with them. Taylor, my ownership of your masters is something we agreed upon way back when you first signed your deal. Swift's jaw Titans. She gave borchetta control of her masters when she was just 15, with no experience in the recording industry. She didn't bother with an attorney. She relied on her dad. It's a decision. She regrets. I know, but these songs just mean so much to me. What would it take to get them back? Or shed a considers this for a moment. Swift's contract with big machine is up soon. She owes them one more album and then she's a free agent. She's the biggest earner on his label by far. He's built big machine around her. And he wants to keep her there as long as possible. What about this? I give you a chance to earn back your masters. Swift leans forward, placing her slender arms on her knees. Focusing her blue eyes intently on borchetta. She's earned hundreds of millions for big machine already. Earning back her masters can't be that hard. In exchange for each new album you make with us. You'll get control of one old album at a time. Swift's stomach sinks, and she feels her blood howl in her ears. Suddenly, her weak position is crystal clear. This arrangement would keep her tied to big machine forever. It would be bad enough if she was just tangling with borchetta. But little does she know, someone else wants to own her masters? It's not another artist, or another label. No, it's Scooter Braun, manager to Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Kanye West. Braun is the most famous manager in the world. And he didn't get there by being nice. Swift's fight for her masters isn't going to be just a scrimmage for what she believes is rightfully hers. It'll be much, much more than that. She will wage a painful, expensive battle.

You know. I had the first positive drug tests. He told them look this. This collector was coming after me. he's an anti semite. And i thought it was just despicable. And so i give mark at nausea. The brewers credit for his loyalty that braun. I'd say this. He's a better person than i am. A given that. If i were mark grad nausea after bron lied about you being a pd user and then accepted a sixty game suspension. What was it a half year suspension. I would have never forgiven him after giving him that. Huge contract mark attanasio did no in from afar. That's my viewpoint to. I can't get passed it. He tried to destroy. Somebody's life yup and he lied. You know that was. He gave that speech in february of two thousand twelve. It wasn't until two thousand thirteen that he finally got caught up in the biogenesis investigation and got his suspension. I get it in milwaukee they the fans there for gave them gave them standing ovations. You know on the field is the third greatest brewer of all time. You know buying rodney out in honor for me. I just can't get past. His initial reaction is. Denial is lies. And you know great player. No doubt thirty thirty. Mvp all that. But you know. I think i would hope.

"You can have a great physique and and know how to market yourself and take pictures on social media and you don't even have to get on stage ever have you can make bank like guys like bradley. Martin page hathaway. I saw her compete at. I believe nationals Many years ago. Back when i was competing. And she didn't even place in the top fifteen and then she went on to become like the most paid famous. You know female you know. Is it better though now that it's the fitness industry. And it's not just bodybuilding. That's a question i wanted to ask you. Is it better. Yes because fitness is humongous and bodybuilding. This small like microcosm so for me. I don't even. I don't even look at so people say blocks atlanta's the bible and company right in essence all of anything that you do to work out his bodybuilding Whether you're a bikini girl. I you know toning yourself. That's still bodybuilding so we we market to everybody in the gym. You know like like the bodybuilder crowd is is a small crowd. And i'm not really all that interested and that i mean that's that's my people of course but we market to the everyday jim or markets to the new people trying to make changes in their lives like that's where fitness is at now and those newbies. They're going to get into maybe cross it. Or maybe powerlifting or maybe they will decide that they want to get into bodybuilding but at all it all is encompassed by fitting right. And that's that's the big thing now. Fit bodybuilding has perhaps gone a lot smaller but fitness gun huge. Now i agree with that. I agree with what you just said. I think it's better to. And i think some old time bodybuilders hate the bradley martin types of those guys that come in and do that type shake it up and cause the spotlight i guess to to transition it causes you. Know what's been interesting in bodybuilding to watch the regional shows. The guys that are doing it right have really blown up some of the regional shows in the us in that arnold model where they have kind of like a sports spectacular. And that's kind of how shows of evolved and changed in you see more of the tried and true just bodybuilding shows like. I'm here just to see you know whatever they become more like pageants yes especially on the female side absolute one hundred percent. You have nine federations. There's four million pro card. Every girl has a pro card. You know so. That's changed the game tremendously and they create more of like a pageant atmosphere around. Well there and there's so many women that have gotten into fitness now so people say to me all the time they're like. Why do you market so aggressively to women. And i'm like because everybody has been marketing. The guys for years and easy part. You've got all of these. It's cool to have muscles now for like girls go to gym and they wanna have muscles they don't want like some pink bullshit product that they they kinda they kinda watered down. I guess the word to use his water down the women's division. Because now you have like you know the dana lens of the world. That can really change the game so so. It's not the emphasis on. I just want to get bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger as a woman but it is cool now to be toned in shape and up. There is now. There's a place reverend.

Scooter Braun Comments on 'Confusing' Feud With Taylor Swift

"Scooter braun whose justin bieber's manager. You might not know his name. But he's a big big manager in hollywood. He's confused about his feud of taylor swift. That's how you know his name. He bore taylor swift's stors all her recordings. I think it was six of albums. Taylor went absolutely crazy. Some people say rightly so now. Scooter is to say the following quote. I regretted. it makes me sad. That taylor had this reaction. I don't know what story she was told. I asked to sit down with several times meat. She refused and he offered to sell her her back catalogue. But she's saying not quite so fast so in november when the story broke she said that brown basically did this behind her back and she wasn't allowed to buy her own music. She said the following quote. So i would have to sign a document that would silence me forever before i could even have a chance to beat on my own. Work is crazy that she didn't own her own work. Legal team at the time told her is absolutely not normal to sign an nda like that and nondisclosure agreement and said basically this is the type of document you get someone to sign after sexually assaulting them and paying them off and she said that she would never sign it. These masters were not for sale to me. I think taylor here. I'm not sure. I believe scooter. And even if cutest telling the truth this is not gonna help you. Stop. it's over you did this. You made a lot of money. He's already sold them again so he's made hundreds of millions of dollars taylor swift there sort of winning too. So don't feel batches re recorded all her old albums and she's going to re release those. So i think here we can feel okay for both people but definitely there's something a little

"We having a liberal a LeBron James update from Vogel in his postgame conference says of LeBron and his ankle. He's good to go. There are no issues with his right ankle Great. You go. That's so that that there you go, there's great news for the Lakers and LeBron just good to go. Like we said, you know there was that. I think it was one of those situations where for a moment, Braun went. Oh no, right. Right. You know, he probably used a four-letter word, right? Instead of saying, oh no, but he was probably a little bit worried for a split second and then he realized, okay, I'm good. You know, if you've turned your ankle before if you've been out there on the court and you've done that, you know, when you kind of do it a little bit and you're worried for a split second and then you realize. Okay, I'm actually I'm good. I think that's wrong with LeBron and Frank Vogel confirms. He's good to go. So that's great.

"Then I see a show on HBO the other night. But I was dying not to watch, by the way. But I said, let me just check this out. I know it's gonna fucking aggravate me, but the show is called exterminate all brutes. Right? Yes. Guy name raul peck documentarian filmmaker, black guy, his last project, was about James Baldwin called I am not your Negro. Listen, all I can say is if you want to hear about how bad white people have been over the ages. If you want to hear about the atrocities that we committed and Europeans committed and all the native Indians and the indigenous people who were killed in the genocides that occurred all over the world, then tune in. It's up your fucking alley, okay? If you're tired of hearing about how bad white people are, then skip it. But you know, my wife told me when I got back from the hospital that there's this great show on HBO and it's about, you know, she she's looking for, if we heard this angle in history class in school, we'd never, you know, we know a lot more about the world. And right away, I said, yeah, I already know. I already get it, hon. White people are bad. We're bad people. I'm sick of hearing it. I'm sick of my kids hearing it. It's going to give them such a complex growing up. I don't want to watch shows like this, but I have to watch it because I have to know how much I hate something. Do you understand this? This is a sickness. But raul pet, make the mistake. He is a master. At making this series. He's a master at using different types of music to elicit different responses in you. Music you wouldn't ordinarily hear. When you think of Ava Braun and Adolf Hitler, normally they don't plan any happy jokey music, but in this case he does. And it throws a different slant on things. He's brilliant at what he does. I will give him that. He's a master at making sure we all know that people of color over the centuries have gotten the short shrift. I understand that. Of course, that's true.

Ryan Braun's Tainted Legacy on the Eve of His Retirement

"Ryan braun told some reporters who cover the brewers that he is almost certainly going to be retired. It's not a surprise. He's thirty seven years old This is someone who at three hundred and fifty two home runs in his career to ninety-six average and mvp award nine thousand nine hundred sixty three hits eleven hundred fifty four rbi. But i don't think. I saw a lot of what really to me is going to be a big part of his legacy. When his baseball you know epitaph is written along with the mvp award. His legacy is going to be about what happened with his positive drug test and his suspension that he had for. Pd's it was one of the worst cases of a professional athlete in the united states. And i know of along with lance armstrong for someone who just flat lied. He one point you remember. You tested positive. He contested it. It went before an arbitrator and he won that a he won that arbitration decision and then he did a victory dance with the press. Conference at the brewers spring training camp. And you remember how during that process. He dumped all over the specimen collector. Who who's calling other players suggesting to them that the specimen collector was anti semitic and then push came to shove in the end. He was determined that yeah. He cheated accepted a suspension I don't know how you get away from that. It was one of the ugliest situations that i've seen in the thirty two years at a covered. Baseball tim must've ask him to be in the first paragraph of his retirement wherever he goes ear. There's no way around. I'll never forget us watching afri- i was in the espn bostering screw training and we were watching in. All of us. Basically said the same thing that was impressed with the way that she presented this. I believe i'm a little naive about some things. But i believe every word he said that day because of the passionate he used and the waiting presented everything then to find out. Later that he was lying was more than letdown. For a lot of people at it's just acknowledged right away. I don't say a may not be in the first paragraph of his retirement story but it will be because of how adamantly was and how through someone under the bus that i didn't do this.

We'll have twenty six songs on it. Because i've decided to add songs from the vault. Which are songs spent almost made the original fearless album. But i've now gone back and recorded those so that everyone will be able to hear. Not only that made the album but the song was almost made it full picture. Well okay so taylor fans of course freaking out over this news. Love story is dropping two nights. I love that song and after decoding taylor's cryptic letter. Instagram looks like her. Re recorded album fearless with six new songs will drop april nine. Okay so taylor. Finally getting revenge on scooter braun. Absolutely i love it because it's her masters you know and when you're young or when you're excited you sign onto a record label and you don't even think about everything else. Happy to get it. Yeah you're so happy to get it. So i'm excited for her her new album and the new songs that are on there. I think our fans are going to support her and the everyone's going to buy it. I think you're right. Her fans are gonna supporter. I just don't this is really about revenge at this point.

This is me versus scooter. Scooter made a business deal that anybody would have made had. They had the capital and the chance for it to be brought to the table. I think she needs to rearrange in and and stop thinking in that manner if she is because we know what happened last time. She got an a few of ninety.

"braun" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"Braun about how the small businesses in his state are coping with the crisis so I'm sitting in my wife's store that was started back in nineteen seventy eight and that I've talked to so many business owners small medium and large but that this was one of them that would have been considered a non essential business and the report I'm getting almost across the board in the specially in that category in many of the essential businesses David docteur casting company that does a lot of business with the automotive industry March basically only all ten percent eighty percent off in April to where they now with seven or eight plants have to look at which ones are going to close how many workers are gonna lay off because they're large enough to where they just got access to the general liquidity we put in the system so I think the focus is banned we've all been watching the disease and I think we're actually benefiting from how we did incorporate the social distancing hygiene do not get together in large groups but the court's time hearing in Indiana which is you know we are the cross section of the country the crossroads of it is the real solutions not more government let's be smart about selectively re opening the economy acting the vulnerable populations of elderly you know defend them well in the health care workers it happened still fight it in the end of an interesting place where across the state yeah a you know we're role in it Indianapolis so is been cited as a place to watch but it we've been lucky so far it's been under control but in general what we do in terms of the phase four I'm gonna be willing to add more to the SBA package because I think we play sixty billion already and probably going to need to be more but I'm going to be really focusing on how we smartly re open the economy without giving any ground back to the disease and I think a lot of my cohorts in the senator thinking along those lines as well to send you one of the first specialist I talked with who talked about that very early on me to think about how we re open the economy after we really get the better of this virus I want to talk about that but first talk about what's going on right now with the small business loans there are three fifty billion dollars appropriated is that going out the door how can you monitor make sure it's working we're hearing some reports there's a lot of difficulty with the SBA with bureaucracy and what about increasing in the three fifty billion because we did hear from the Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who seems to be open to that are you how much more do we need to appropriate well I think we'll see we've done sixty billion back tell you the good paces breath and that means that here soon we probably will be at a point where you know what to look at that and I don't think any senators will really be against that or any particular groups or individuals that have been displaced the where we maybe didn't catch them you know in phase three but when it comes more broadly in the some of the discussions you heard are like fellow senator came in with me any pain Josh Hawley he's hearing the same thing about how much you know devastation there is across the specially the small business world talk about a more comprehensive thing to government I'm gonna be leaning more towards be careful there on what we do in phase four err on the side of the cruise solution to getting things back to normal is selectively re opening the account when you talk about things for one of the existing discusses the need to give some support to state and local government some people think that not enough was given in a so called phase three do you share that view what's the situation in the Indiana right now no I think there that was one of the last discussions we had that we knew was going to be probably your local government is run like a basic services needed their revenue dropped because businesses are not making incomes to pay taxes so that be another area where when we ended up where we did with the figure most of us thought that may need to be re address will that be something I'd be okay with looking into because it started I think a twenty five billion ended up in the neighborhood of twenty five billion or so and it looks like that may not have been adequate and that I think most senators would be okay with doing something better while to say let's turn to the question of re open economy and as you say we don't want to do that to download because we've seen situations for example in Singapore where they may have moved a little too fast but how do we come in about you with the plan about how to do that how will we know the right time to do that and how do we do it take an example here it Indiana governor Holcomb was out early on I think listening to what we needed to do especially with a place like Indianapolis for most of the state looks like it's been working they expanded it for two more weeks but then gave a little latitude for smaller businesses that are nonessential there let them now do curbside delivery or customer can come in and pick it up without opening your store that's the kind of common sense stuff I'm talking about you do it selectively you do it in the places where you've had the least number of cases where you're most sparsely populated use common sense the idea that we need to do like a national shutdown in even the states that have not differentiated between hot spots in places where there's more social distancing by the nature of how densely populated you are a baths what I'm talking about be having your eye on not giving any ground up to the disease I think it it doesn't have to be an all or nothing one way or the other course we don't want a wholesale re opening of the economy is I think it would would backslide on having the disease down and vice versa the center is a thank you letter do we need to have vastly greater capability of testing across the country in order to really do this reopen economy because we won't know where we are we won't know whether it backs later at if we take can't test on awful lot of people I think camping is something we're gonna grapple with it probably won't get to where we need to be during this first about with the novel coronavirus I think we'll be in great shape if it tried to resurface this fall I look at the mortality rate in the cases because the mortality rate we know is accurate and we also know that the number of cases if we could verify with tasks experts instead of anywhere from three five to ten times as many the thing that I think that most people freaked out early was a mortality rate that looked like it could be in the two and a half to three percent range mostly experts now saying it's going to be way under one percent if not even closer to the flu but I don't want to give up any ground man I just want to be smart about how we do it and that means that you take the risk of re opening the economy in the places were you've not had the incidence of the disease and testing we should be doing is graphically if we can get data that backs up that general idea of what I think the solution is but I don't think we'll get there with enough pass they were gonna give us the full amount of information we need to where we start re opening the economy before we have everybody tested I think that'll pick is way too deeply into the air and we'll have them here repairable demand and supply destruction have a consequence center were clearly fighting a national crisis and you'd like to believe there's no partisanship but just give me a view into that phase for the report to you said you don't think any senator would react what would resist increase the amount of money for small business do we think that we can get a face for through without partisanship breaking out can you work together with the Democrats can Nancy Pelosi the speaker of the house work together with Mitch McConnell I think we can if we stay focused and that means take care anyone who was overlooked or omitted from pastry enhance where we know there was a need for more when we had a limited amount of time to get the numbers right do not be tempted to try to add a Greg a grab bag of policy stuff into it which you know I think speaker Pelosi did try to do that most senators Democrats and Republicans included we thought we had it across the finish line if you recall that didn't happen until late I think we've learned a lesson there stay focused on where we didn't have it flashed out well don't try to have a lot of extraneous stuff thanks to Republican senator Mike Braun from Indiana.

Healthy to just manage normal everyday anxiety we live in a separate disorders electromagnetic frequencies also exacerbating Sidoti. So we have all of these factors Situational anxiety in general. You know if we take those factors aside is really related to what we believe. What are these underlying grace? We have most of those earner subconscious not necessarily air conscious mind and the most of them are based on past experiences. That are negative. Would you put status for an expectation for future experiences to also be negative? I WanNa add when you were talking about b-vitamins.

But let's talk about quantum physics if if we can. Can you explain the law of expansion in quantum physics? Sure so You know quantum physics is really Quanta. Means the smallest particle which is the atom and even smaller than the atom the parts of the atom and quantum physics is understanding the science of energy. And so we have different laws. Most people have heard a lot of traction Most people heard the law which we can also car call sewing and reading or Karma to a certain degree in the way we understand Karma One of the laws is called the law of expansion. And basically what we want to understand. Is that our thoughts and our emotions. Our energy and their powerful our thoughts of create things they manifest things are our emotions manifesting. And so what's a lot? Expansion says is that when we think our focus on one thing with emotional and mental energy we add energy to that thing and that same gets bigger so when we focus our energy on a problem and this is all scientific. This isn't just physical or philosophical. This is actually proven scientifically when we focus our mental emotional energy on a problem. We actually add energy to that problem and that problem now has potentialities to get bigger absolutely focus their energy on a solution we now make that pollution. We give the potentialities to get bigger well. What are some effective ways to pivot from fear? Well so the concept of mindfulness is that I am paying attention to what I'm thinking now. One of the things I like to teach go is that we are like icebergs. And we're we're made up one hundred percent of energy and so we're really only aware about five percent what's going on everything else is in our subconscious and as you know most of the work. I do with people is finding those things that are subconscious that are creating blogs or strongholds or or their past traumas of their past fears and fear trauma energy super strong and super powerful. So you know somebody who has say has had somebody die than Lee is GonNa have a much harder time walking through fear if somebody's sick right then. Somebody hasn't happened to because there are some conscious remembers how painful that situation was. And they didn't get the outcome they had hoped for So those are very real and very true but then doesn't necessarily moving into the future Mean that you're going to get sick or somebody's GonNa Die. Every time they get sick that we make those associations behold on him to subconsciously we hold onto subconsciously. I'm sure you heard a little acronym of fear means false evidence appearing real So sometimes we can have a small amount of evidence and we can blow it out of proportion. Sometimes it's something we completely one hundred percent make up one of the reasons we do that and I'll give an example I'll give to so one is okay. I have a job interview tomorrow and I'm scared I'm GONNA botch it. So one of the results of fear is that we will use fear to prepare for an anticipated. So if I'm afraid of this interview that fear might cause me to rehearse my interview yesterday not a bad idea anakin just alleviate a normal fear Let's just take right now. Let's say I have a sniffle. And so fear might say. Oh my Gosh I have krona viruses and I have a sniffle but a month ago or two months ago. I wouldn't have thought anything about it. I would have thought it was allergy but now I have this thing stuck in my mind right that because there's this law expansion as all. This energy is being put on Corona virus and nobody got was afraid of getting the flu and yet millions of people get the flu every year. But we don't think route so when we enter he on and he gets bigger. Yeah well it's all about changing your perception. I ran across this interesting article in the New York Times late last night. And it talks about the perception of stress. This is very interesting and it says while we know that stress is associated with how problems. Plenty of people with high stress. Lives are thriving. So how is that possible in two thousand twelve? Researchers from the University of Wisconsin Madison published. A seminal study. Looking at how twenty-eight thousand people perceive stress in their lives people in the study answered these two questions during the last twelve or the past twelve months. Would you say that you experienced a lot of stress? A moderate amount of stress relatively little stress or almost no stress at all and the second question was how much effect has stressed had on your on your health and it was one a lot to some three hardly any and for non and this is the big. This is where I'm getting too so incredible. So the reset. Researchers looked at the rates in the study group over nine years and the results are really startling at says the study found that having a lot of stress in your life was not linked with premature death but having a lot of stress in your life and believing that it was taking a toll on your health increased the risk of premature death by forty. Three Percent Robin right so back to that iceberg. Police are in our and so we. They stir up fears. Now these are very real fears and your subconscious is really strong. The main just little hack I can give people right now is when you start to think about these things and move into fear and you're paying attention so the key is one you have to pay attention to your thoughts a little better. And that's called mindfulness. So all I do Wanna I just WanNa move into gratitude or something positive when we're in a situation of fear that the helpless feeling like we can't control this then the best way to get out in that fear is to one to surrender and accept the fact that I can't control it so stop trying to control something. I can't control so it kind of relief that and I just go. I can't control this and to just timid my thinking towards something that is positive that is going on good something. I'm grateful for it shifts your frequency. It's shift the energy or give into the fear. It changes your mindset and it truly has conscious shift and you will. You will feel better. Yeah I get to choose. We get to choose. Yeah we're GONNA do in that moment. I feel better just hearing your voice and what great advice that you put out there today. We're going to go to break. Robyn thank you so much for jumping on the air hopefully can jump on again with us in the upcoming weeks and we'll be back you guys.

"One one nine eight two three truth be told I don't care how you spell time just CPAS text the word time two four one one ninety two three all right Braun when what is your favorite fast food place like you know you're just you're hungry you had a long day here at the KTAR studios and you were just going to drive through and your going to Chow down because you have this amazing craving what is your go to place I think the question to me wants to say check filet for sure okay yeah okay and what does the non Christian and you say canes three blast you don't have to plus it would you know you've got a job it is amazing I I had never put all that together but that makes sense because my nine year old who only got she's gonna be ten and I think for the same I. your bone loss shoot I hope my wife not listening my ten year old who's about to become eleven number one go to is it raising cane's and his number two go to is a check for well you know why he's you know he's he's in the non Christian well he it takes more after me then is his mom so that that makes it all right so we have a story here and how far will you allow your cravings to grow to go SO Albany New York a group of RPI students decided to get creative after having a craving from a they are their favorite place a chick fillet the problem of Bronwyn is the nearest chick fillet was about a about a three hour road trip so in order to will satisfy this craving what did this group do they actually went to their nearest chick fillet which was inside an airport and so they decided to get to chick fillet by buying an airplane ticket for eighty nine dollars and all the teammates chipped in and split it up and then one teammate went through TSA all security protocols and bought chick fillet for their entire team so they didn't even go on a plane and travel or they just they just needed to get through security in order to buy some chick fillet and seeing this is the there's unintended consequences for for everything and I don't want to be little I probably shouldn't bring somebody want to belittle at nine eleven but this is I mean I mean to traversing airports in getting through security is not as easy as hard core as it used to be and so with this team they just they were just hungry for chick fillet so they all chipped in eight you know and save up eighty nine dollars literally bought an airline ticket the name of fly on there are you that dedicated yeah I think depend you are I think it depends on what it is it and I think that you know the the price point I've driven places and spend you know forty fifty dollars in gas because I'm from LA so we don't have well I I'm not gonna say anymore we got some fabulous restaurants now in fabulous places to eat but when I first moved out here to Arizona I couldn't find a good pork corned beef pastrami sandwich and I I would get a car I'd be willing to drive when I was younger before kissing her question when you have kids you you you can't do it no I I didn't see it in the article was and I don't know whether these students were smart enough to do it but I might have paid the higher price to get a fully refundable airline I was I was thinking about that like why wouldn't they get a refunded ticket yeah because I I don't know did yeah I mean I don't I don't know but I can tell you how much their order cost okay two hundred and twenty seven dollars fifteen large fries a hundred and fifty six nuggets and fifteen chick fillet sandwiches okay you know where else they went wrong but this is the entrepreneur in me okay okay I would have invited other people from the school charge them a premium a shipping and handling fee and shipping across TSA in in handling the food they could have actually made money on this I think so too honestly all right well I I'm curious to know where our listeners would you what what is that one place that you have such a craving for but you might be willing to spend a hundred dollars or ninety dollars on an airline ticket to cross TSA the Krusty essay at the airport one thing I love about sky harbor airport anymore yeah especially terminal four yeah you do have to get crossed you say but the the food choices are amazing and a lot of crash like Chelsea's kitchen and some other ones you don't have to cross the the TSA line to to get that but I'd be curious to know what is your favorite place what is that one childhood or that one place that you might be willing to go the extra mile no pun intended to get food mine would be there's a little hamburger joint in and San Fernando Valley southern California called the Munch box I I think I would I would do bad things I might even streak across TSA if I knew the Munch box was if you get it for free if you did that you think are you dedicated they're they're not they're not serving in prison but my other model life I am too pretty for prison so we won't be doing that all right creativity joining us coming up we got

"Braun we'll work hard for our money but a new analysis shows we are wasting billions of dollars each year bit by bit from our bank accounts how will Tonya rightly says we are clearly making some mistakes with our money Tonya's a millennial money expert and she joins me now to help shed some light on what's really going on and how even the worst savers among us can still manage to tuck away some cash for a rainy day Tanya welcome how are you I'm doing pretty good Kyle thank you so much for having me well I can understand being a little bit wasteful with money maybe not tracking purchases or something I'm guilty of that what are some of the the most common mistakes that you run into yeah we all had to spend money we all have needs and wants but what happens a lot of times the people are competing their needs with their one into this because you wanted intensely doesn't mean anything and you know we leave our house we go to the store for a need and then we walk out with a whole bunch of one and so are often recommend for people to address that is before you check out ask yourself is this a need OR one after the other every item you're about to purchase and if it's a what I encourage you to put some of those ones that because you you the way that the next time you go away so money is a little better and so is the part is that but then I also work with people who you know it's a tiny you know what I've done everything that I can I'm not buying exiting the I'm not buying anything I want actually it's my needs that are costing me money and so I asked them are you comparison shopping are you shopping around annually and a lot of people are doing that because they locked in car insurance they locked in a phone bill they locked in a cake paid cable bill and that's just what they pay and they paid out for the upcoming years instead of stopping around annually to find out if they're eligible for discounts or if there's any promotions that could be applied to help them save money it's good stuff we don't think about that often you're you're right we do get locked in a these automatic payments in something you said also you know he is struck a chord with me I'm a big fan of the wish lists and I take the approach of keeping things in my cart when I'm shopping online I find that by doing that a lot of times this stuff that I I shop for I pick out and then a week later I find out that you know I I really don't want that after all oh my god that's so true I look at my car like I wanted that the back but it gives you that surreal of shopping you know with without actually spending so that I can appreciate that outside of those once in needs conversations what are some of the other biggest culprits that you're finding that siphon away cash from our bank accounts well you know one of the biggest culprit might come a surprise you or might not actually overdraft fees so baby at day recently released a new analysis and they found that it's hot U. S. cities are paying three billion dollars an overdraft fees ever re yeah yeah so even on the Carolina girl and base their Los Angeles I'm gonna put that in perspective for you and so the average and then we know it's been about seven hundred million dollars or at a Los Angeles in general it's been in seven hundred million it year an overdraft fees and right there Raleigh to spending thirty seven million dollars a year an overdraft fees so boiling that down the average overs after they're getting three hundred and seventy four dollars per year on overdraft fees and Kyle that's a lot of money especially considering the average American does I have four hundred dollars set aside and never did the savings in the specially when you're talking about needs and wants if there's if there's a need that someone has in there blowing that money on an overdraft fees thanks what are some other ways and we can be smarter with budgets yeah so what what the out dated with Dave at what you can do is you can connect that your bank account and the date out by the seventy five dollar advance from your next paycheck to help you avoid overdraft fee it works by thinking up to that bank account in analyzing your upcoming expenses if it's either the upcoming expense is putting you at risk of overacting you will see a text alert and give you the option of using that seventy five dollar advance from your upcoming paycheck but did it doesn't stop there because will also connecting with job and gave in your area the you can make a little extra cash to make a couple extra dollars to put toward your savings or to build that emergency fund got to have that side hustle yeah the title is important you know might not be expert in something to bring it is a lady there are gigs available around you that can help bring more money not bad will Tonya's as we're talking about you know the money moves for twenty twenty and and maybe things that people could do better how about some action items for someone who wants to maybe turn over a new leaf with their financial goals this year I I've heard some folks talk about things like putting your savings on auto pilot or are paying yourself first any advice like that yeah you know I'll probably be good for some people but if you you know you can certainly find yourself over dropping it might not be something that for you is that you get a handle your finances so getting a handle your finances means getting more intimate with your finances I recommend that people analyze their expenses regularly so auditors out the way you know the Iraq with someone else without if you are yourself every quarter that means sitting down putting out your transaction in looking at like the items are what I call lifestyles that are those are items like the groups and or any additional services that you're paying for regularly that are costing you more money than you anticipated at the top of the year or when you did your budget but it outside of that it is sometimes you just need to make more money I'm surprised more money that's helpful taking advantage of the gig economy I'm finding jobs near you you know if you have children and so forth he done if they feel like you have a lot of free time baby is walking dogs in your neighborhood or if you do have is a tad of free time maybe it is delivering groceries or you know the mail service and so forth sell help you put aside the extra cash to put towards maybe don't want that you have sitting in your cart for building that they be funny if you don't have that four hundred dollars put that aside so many options out there you mentioned website earlier any other handy resources that you recommend we can go.
