with Isaac Morehouse founder of Praxis and Crash - burst 02
"And today I am here with Isaac Morehouse who is the founder of praxis and also crash dot co a welcome Isaac. Thank you so much for joining me today. Absolutely. It's great to be here. So, I have been I, guess following your excellent work in the world for several years and I am so inspired by what you say your mission in life is your purpose, which is the relentless pursuit of freedom. And so. As I watched. Some of your videos you talked about how you started early in your career really teaching principles of freedom to young people. But where you are today is rather than just share ideas. You really giving people a taste of freedom so they won't settle for anything less. So yeah. That's exactly a good way to to frame it out Because I'm a big ideas person and obviously freedom is it's an idea but it's it's really a lived experience. It's a feeling you have and I. I spent a lot of years. Trying to through just argumentation and education. Trying to expand the scope of freedom after myself and for others you know trying to argue for freer government policy is in, you know people that took to make choices to make themselves more free in their lives and. I. Found that it's really hard to envision. What you have to know what could be you have to have a bit of a taste of it in order to be motivated enough to make a change. So there's my favorite economists Ludwig von me says, there's three preconditions to human action. One is dissatisfaction with the status quo to is vision of something better, and three is a belief in the ability to get there and I find that whether you're talking about education, which is a space I've been in a lot or just any other career government, any areas of life it's not that hard for people to feel dissatisfaction discomfort with where they are. Of Vision of something better is a little harder, it's a little harder to be and I know that there is a superior version of my life over here and then I think the hardest is a belief in the ability to get there even if you have that that vision of something that might be better and so. I thought I've been I've been basically trying to convince people that the status quo. Socks, and to a lesser degree that there is a superior vision of life over here. But if they don't have that belief in the ability to get their nothing's going to happen. So if you just tell somebody you know, for example, the public school system is Scott all these terrible incentive. There's always reasons that it's bad. They'll shake their head and you can convince them pretty quickly and then if you say you know. homeschooling and run schooling. You know Sudbury model school or some other alternative is this better vision they'll. They might come along with you on that as well, and then they'll kind of walk away and say, so what because they don't know how to get from here to there and so I just I had this realization that. If you start with hey, her something for you give it a try. And if it makes your life back and it makes you more free, you'll want more of it. You don't even need to be intellectually convinced at all. You just choose to live that way without any argument required. And that's kind of to me entrepreneurship, it's creating the alternatives creating kind of world you wanna live in instead of just complaining about what's wrong with the world today so that it took me a lot longer than I wish it did not to go to that place where I realized all of his energy I had was better spent creating new experiences for people. Then merely it doesn't mean I don't WanNa talk about ideas, but then merely talking about the ideas. That makes such good sense to me. You know as I unschooled and allowed my daughter's to self direct their education. So many people said, wow, you're so brave to do that and it looked so risky and. Your tenable to them, and then I would hear them all these. MOMS August saying Oh, I hope it gets a good teacher and I hope they're not bullied because they were asked year. To me they were. Spinning the Roulette Wheel on that one. But so so as you have been able to give you know hundreds of young people, the experience of freedom. That's one thing I'm so excited to talk about today because. Practices and crash are such. Amazing. I'M NOT GONNA say a ballot alternative because I think it's really the most risk-free path into adulthood that I see you know rather than getting tens of thousands of dollars of debt and hope you can get a job on the end of that. So could you tell us a little bit about your path in creating practice and then how out of that you spun crash? Yes. Absolutely. It's funny. I. Just WanNa quickly comment on you said it's. It's risk-free at it's it's really funny I think about this law because. In the kind of. Financial sense or sort of pragmatic sense. Practice in particular is very, very low risk I mean if you get into the program and you do it like pretty much everybody gets a job after the program and the program pays for itself. So the net cost zero. So it's like a very low risk, but it's not risk free at all. In the terms of the price that you pay socially.

Ch 316 He's at Jarvis, the 90 We'll talk to our body will grade from The golf channel Coming up next is they were watching the PGA Championship here. Ah, believe Tiger and Rory. Their group is I think they're on nine. Right now, so they're trying to finish up the front nine here. And get out of that looks like plus one, potentially the the cut off. So talked about the Braves and the fact that they were rained out tonight, Um, play tomorrow and then they'll do a doubleheader on Saturday as of right now, cow, right? With his 7.50 E. R a Thus far now, um Fork it into him. The talking about the brave starting pitching two quick things. One is the Braves today put Chris Martin on the 10 day injured list the I'll list retroactive to August 6th. Um He has a I don't know if I'm going to pronounce it correctly. And if his Fagel Constriction. It's his esophagus, right? Not sure how the correct pronunciation is, and ah, so whatever that means. I mean, something that was constrictive in his esophagus. I mean, And that can't be good, right? Don't you kind of breathe with all that, but Anyway. Um so luckily the Braves have you no more stellar relievers to bring so luckily for the Braves, chads Snickers, another one of Snickers favorite guys. Shad Subotica. We'll be up now. Chris Martin on the I am not I know I'm nitpicking. I understand That's fine. We'll play that game. Who's the A home? The Braves themselves put out a tweet today, says relievers currently in Atlanta's bullpen have combined to throw 22.2 consecutive scoreless innings dating back to August 1st versus New York and have a 0.93 E. R. A between the nine who have pitched in the game. This season. Okay? Couple of problems with that. Factually statistically, yes, it's true. What about last night? That Tyler Mets it do his job last night. No, because he came in with one out of this. We wanted with the two outs already in the seventh and gave up the single that then get credited his e R. A What was the tying run and was charged the turkey So did he come into his job? No. It's just seen. You know what a week ago not even come in and do his job. When he gives up two runs. Ah, that could charge the new come. He himself gives up two runs. Then, for some reason, has given the ball again to come out and gives up two more runs that he do his job. No. Okay, so I understand. Statistically speaking, yes. That is factually accurate, Okay? But it is misleading. Last night I met sick didn't do his job. Now. Part of that's on the You know, obviously he came in, didn't do it, but part that's on the manager's. We spoke well as they yelled last night. About that decision for four all Star relievers in closers and you bring in Matt sick in the most high livered situation entire game. Not Will Smith or who's backer? No, not my lance in or not Green. So okay, statistically absolutely accurate, no doubt about it on the 30,000 foot view. Was excellent, but Magic didn't do his job last night. So anyway, I know I'm not pick and I understand. You know, I get it. I get it. And that that renowned feared slugger out in right field. Hank here. I mean, Nick Markakis walked it off last night. So With that. How right goes tomorrow night. Sookie truthfully probably deserved better than what his fate was of no decision last night. In that game after a career high and strike us for him was magnificent, especially early in that game. Unfortunately, that's kind of been. Tookie's M O is that you know things go well and kind of rolls along, then all of a sudden, there's that one anymore. It's like what happened. That kind of happened two keys that he didn't factor decision. Was he terrific? Yeah, but at the end the day stolen factor in the decision. There wasn't good enough that he held him down to get the win last night. Which kind of sucked all right, you know. Last Sunday. What was it three and 1/3 or some like that against the Mets in the bullpen came in, held everything together and they get the win. You know, didn't give up any runs. You know, Sean Newcomb pitched his tail after the night didn't get a win. But you know the big key about all these guys is, you know how consistent can they get to Now, I thought it was also funny because Mark Bradley wrote an article. Let's see if this is dated today. Yes, Mark Bradley wrote an article today in the A. J. C in his block, saying. The Braves rebuilt around young pitching. How's that working out? And he goes through all the names ofthe Shelby Miller, Tyrell Jenkins, Max Freed Fulton Average Whistler Allard, Soroka to sought New Comm Blair Anderson, Cal Mueller Bryce Wilson. Go hara cow, Right? Um, everything you know, going through there. Um Says here he listed 16 pictures that they had made moves for nine of them are still in the organization. Six of the nine has started for the Braves in 2020 So I I don't know. I mean, I guess. Rated, however, you will, but certainly outside of Sorokin freed. We don't feel like there's a lot of confidence in the moves that the Braves have made with all this young starting pitching, Sean Newcomer's been on okay at best Major leaguer. Cookie to sod's been at best, maybe average major leaguer cowl, right? Don't even know if he's you know, you know, even average major leaguer. Kobe out. All these guys have done done a nice thing here or there, like right now, How would you describe Mike Fulton averages career with the Atlanta Braves. He came over in the Evan Gattis train, right? How would you describe Mike Fulton averages braised career average. I mean, he's that's the moments where he's been really good. He made it all Star game, right? But on the whole What's he been average? What was.

A new hotline helps gamers with harassment and bullying
"Games have become a huge release for lots of people. Especially, the many who are entering their six month of some sort of corona virus lockdown in June sales. Video Games were up twenty six percent from a year ago. But online harassment has been a problem in gaming for years and in June dozens of women accused streamers, people who broadcast their gaming on twitter youtube of sexual harassment, abuse or assault. Now time video game activist is launching a hotline for people who play Games, or work in the games industry to get support, Anita? Sarkisian is executive, Director of the nonprofit media site feminist frequency I. think that's streaming is a new medium and that while it's the same old abuses of power, it might look a little bit different or it might play out a little bit differently. If this isn't a workplace issue, you don't have an hr to go to if you even trust your hr right like a lot of people don't rightfully. So and so what does it mean for a community to rally and to reckon with abuses that are happening how? How do we hold people accountable in a space that doesn't really have mechanisms for it, and I think those are some of the questions that were starting to ask and understand like is it that we just kicked people out of our communities? When enough? When when someone, who's brave enough to come forward tells her story of abuse. How do we put survivors victims I when we're talking about like, what does it mean to create safe communities and spaces? Is there also an aspect of that? That says, Hey, company, you need to be responsible for some of this as well and bringing them. You know what should have already been irrefutable data but view. Yes. This is this is that tension of we know that you've known that this has been going on, where have you been So we need to move out of this sort of reactionary space and into really reckoning with from the ground up, how are we building our workplaces in our communities to deal with the fact that these abuses can happen and to really center victims in that? Right. How do we deal with it so that we can try and minimize these issues from happening at all. Let's talk for a minute about the other side of the equation, talk to me about the unique issues that come up for people who make video games 'cause. I. Think maybe not everyone is familiar with how tough that industry can be in the games industry. We have really cute little word to describe overworking. And it's called crunch, and this is something that I think we see in tech in general. But specifically in Games, I don't think there's a separation between the issues around crunch and burn out and what we're talking about in regards to abuse because they come from the same root of not really trusting or caring for the humanity of your workers. We see that so much Especially, the really big game studios. Do you see you've been at this for a long time and I admire your strength because? Man Do you get beat up on the Internet? And probably in real life too. and I wonder do you see improvement? Do think things are getting any better? You think they'd have a canned response to its. At this point because I get asked a lot and the answer is complicated and I think that anyone who answers that in a way that isn't complicated isn't seeing the full picture. Right. There is something to just acknowledge here when you've been in these spaces, right at any activists that's been doing work for a long time is tired and it's a lot harder to give to be hopeful and to be optimistic and to see the bright side of things. So I just want to preface acknowledge that like we we all kind of need a rest it to be honest. and. It affects how we talk about and look at change. So. All of that is to say in some ways. Yes, and in some ways, no feminist frequency has been collecting data for the last five years and the the major game studios that announce games every year at e three, which is our biggest biggest gaming events. Now, that didn't happen this year, but they're still these announcements and what we found when we collected the data of the gender identity of the playable characters games is that over the last five years. We have seen almost no change. The lowest point was three percent and the highest point was nine percent and female characters as protagonists like that's five years of time that there's not much change there. Now, there's other change in the data, right? That shows that games that have a gender binary option that have character choice where it's an array of characters you can choose from that's increasing, but we're not seeing a statistical increase in the amount of female characters were seeing as protagonist. Another data point is that yeah, we're not seeing quite as. As much agree just sexism. It doesn't mean it doesn't still exist and it doesn't mean there's still a lot of work that needs to be done but I think we are seeing some shifts in the industry, and that brings us to what's next. Right. We need to be talking about the stories that are being told, the ways that mechanics are being designed, who's getting hired, who gets to tell those stories. There's still a lot a lot of work that needs needs to be done as we're moving towards creating a more inclusive games industry. Anita Sarkisian is the Executive Director of the nonprofit media site feminist frequency. The Games, and online harassment hotline is launching today. We'll have a link to it at marketplace tech dot.

New York Mets' Yoenis Cespedes opting out of 2020 season
"Mets had a bit of a scare when you wanna suspect is didn't show up in today's game in Atlanta after the game here, here on WCBS, of course, metsgeneral manager Brodie van wagon and told reporters suspect us who's physically Okay. But he's opted out of the rest of the 2020 season for covert related reason. We didn't send security to his room in the hotel to make sure That he was OK. He was not at the hotel and Elvis belonging said have been packed up and taken away. But any time a player is not on site yet you want to make sure you check check into it. Make sure first and foremost that he's that he's okay chatting with play by play announcer weighing Randazzo during the broadcast, Howie Rose voice of the Mets. Said concerns about the Corona virus or understandable, but he says suspicious could have handled this better. The one thing that has to stick out about your win assess Metis is how could you not get in touch personally? Whether it's with Louise RoHaas or Brody, Van Wagoner, Jeff Wilpon or anybody if the ownership level They just kind of go AWOL and then leave it to the agent connect with a team and say, Oh, by the way, he's opting out. You know, you can't blame anybody for opting out over covert concerns this year. I mean, everybody's got Varying degrees. Anyway of fear and apprehension and trepidation, but at the very least for it to end without any contact at all between suspicious and the Mets, I think Wayne is weak. The Mets were shut out for nothing by the Braves, weathering their fifth straight

Pilgrimage to Sacred Activism
"Hi Andrew and welcome on to the hey house meditations podcast how wonderful to be with you and how wonderful to have the opportunity to speak to whoever's listening from my heart. Out wonderful wonderful. I'd like to talk to you today about the Fifteenth Century Poet Mystic Kabeer. Who you've been doing so much work on and and perhaps have you read a few of his lines. That articulate a meditative experience that is at once transcendent but also completely grounded I really appreciate that in computer But before we get there, there's a pilgrimage that I like to ask you to take us on a pilgrimage to the ark of of your own spiritual journey. An ARC that is has taken pauses with a variety of traditions, teachers, and Gurus and especially that are of the internal pilgrimage of the heart. So I wonder if you'd take us on that pilgrimage and then we'll sort of maybe conclude with Kabira. Does that sound all right with you? That sounds wonderful. Today and your little remission it it's. Never ends. I remember when I was with father bid when he was dying and. The thing that struck me most and move me most about him here. He was the greatest living Christian mystic but even on his deathbed when he was eighty seven, he was still striving for deeper and deeper realize. So he gave me a permanent image of what this really is journey of endless expansion. Shems of Tabriz said to Rumi. The world of God is wealth of endless expansion. We don't ever arrive. We just go Diba and DEEPA and Deepa went blasted where wild enough were brave enough into a mystery that always keeps opening onto wilder and holy vistas. This is my experience. Yes, and you're well I must say your your life has demonstrated that but I'm not exactly certain if you knew that when you were born. In mother India right you are. You're born in south India early in your life. You earlier in life you're surrounded by multiple religious by religious face including your your parents Protestant faith. And among the Hindus and Muslims. So how did that early on your life? How did that shape your outlook on the nature of humans on the nature of people and the nature of the divine? India is too big bomb in a well the distill known that live as cred experience. And that mock me forever I feel that I have an Indian. So a European mind and an American mission. So my deepest deepest ground is always in there especially in south India. When I was born. Nineteen fifty two was the twilight of the Rosh. So this. Was the atmosphere of an. Empire would still. Diffused itself through everything but India itself although it had been dominated by the British in never lost its passionate spirituality and that's what I met in the earliest and most impressionable years of my life. I loved going to temples with my Hindu coke. I loved learning the hail. Mary from my Catholic nanny and I loved it when the driver that we had to as a Muslim stopped the car in the middle of traffic and put his. Prem Don and chunk to Allah. In very early on. I met a saint and this is an extraordinary story because I had white Russian. Godmother. who used to smoke cigarettes out of black along black cigarette holder in Lyon dressed in gold she fall she looked like a Russian Melena dietrich and I was crazy about her she's. and. Every day off to school I would go running up the stairs of her flag. And jumped into bed between her and have great friend who is huge Rowley poterie Indian woman Shanti.

Big tech CEOs testify before Congress
"So, this hearing just going to say it, it was six hours of chaos. So. So many things like individual moments of pure chaos happened this hearing. But because every member of Congress was only given five minutes to ask the questions in and they moved on, no one could process the moments of cash. So here are some things that happened during this hearing. Jeff. bezos just started eating nuts on his call. That was just a thing that you started snacking for the first ninety minutes. It appears that basis had tech issues was operating in some kind of delay. So we didn't hear from him.

Just elaborate conspiracy theories. was when I say was chaos I. Don't know if there's any other way to describe it. I. Think that led a lot of people to think the hearing itself didn't accomplish its goals, but I think in many ways it did. But Kennedy you WanNa Kinda go through what the committee was trying to accomplish the themes they were pointed at in. How hearing played out, right. So okay. First off. Harkening back to last week I mentioned Jim. Jordan's mountain dew obsession. Definitely drink a handful those throughout the hearing I took notes in screen shots. So, I, called it. But regardless of their pores soda choices, there were a lot of lawmakers who definitely did their homework and I think that was really apparent throughout the entire hearing and when I look at. The picture that they tried to paint I think that became really clear in chairman Sicily's opening statements. So this is the guy who liked. And spearheaded the entire investigation from the beginning, and in those opening statements, he pointed out that yeah Apple Amazon Google facebook. There are different in a lot of ways and they exhibit anticompetitive behaviors potentially allegedly and a lot of different ways. But what they tried to pull together and was a story, and it's really hard to tell a story and five minute fragments. But what happened yesterday was Sicily. Ni, and a lot of the Democrats on the Committee wanted to point out that these companies they become bottlenecks for distribution whether that's information or just like APP stores marketplace's they control what gets distributed in how what was really key to the investigation was how? How they survey competitors. If you have so much control dominance over a market or a specific part of the tech industry, you have a lot of insight into your competitors and you can do a lot of dangerous things with that, and then lastly, after that dominance has gained, it's how they abuse it. Right? How they abuse it to make harder for small businesses in competitors and I think that's exactly what Cellini pointed out in the beginning and I think they did a poor job that storytelling throughout the process. But I think that's also our job. Right is to pull that evidence together and tell that story for them in a way that isn't like. Yes, no yelling at CEOS and like stopping them and I think by getting that in the evidentiary record doing all this questioning, I think they really did achieve their goal in the end. Yeah. I mean, I think the thing that happened sort of next to the hearing was that they released a bunch of documents from these one point, three, million documents of clutch. Over the past year, they released pretty targeted selection documents for every company showing some of this stuff, Casey, I wrote a story about. facebook. INSTAGRAM. My I'm going to frame this email or mark Zuckerberg. Literally one sentence, no period. The Andrew says I need to figure out. I'M GONNA buy instagram like I would love to just be in a place were sending that email like super casually like I got this thing to figure out and it's not like am I gonNa buy the model of the car. It's like instagram. I've been thinking of the text messages where so and so says that Mark Zuckerberg's didn't go destroy mode on instagram ever since they got that up. Case she this to Kevin and right that text was. Yes. Well, it was Kevin. System was talking to an investor and Kevin said to the investor. If we don't sell well, mark, go into destroy mode on us and the investor side probably. Of course, stray casual. So there's just a lot of documents and I think one of the functions of hearing was to get those documents into the official congressional record to make the CEO's account for them. That did not seem very successful to me. Is like a takeaway people should have from this hearing, right? No. I think a lot of people that go into these hearings are expecting like these big Gotcha moments and expecting like a lot of news and all this stuff. But it really, it wasn't oversight hearing. You know it wasn't. They didn't come. They came at this like in a report last earlier this week that they came out at as investigators. They didn't come at it to make a big show horse and pony show out of it, and yet I think the CEO's didn't. The record well enough to the extent that they could have. But there was definitely, I was expecting them to do a lot less evasion and I expected a lot less room probation with the documents, but it's just the process of a Congressional hearing. It's. It's hard to do that in a congressional hearing. But if you put those documents out there, you get the CEO's on the record a little bit who does excite this excites the FTC. J, and that's who can take this next and then it's also congress. You know they can't break up a tech company, but they can regulate going forward and it's those three key themes that I pointed out earlier that they could regulate. You know what I mean. They could legislate to forbid companies from surveying competitors and things like that, and that's where this goes. So the format of the hearing, every member and five minute chunks, it seemed very clear that the Democrats had some sort of coordinated evidentiary strategy, they would start and. And they would say, I, want to read this email to you. What did you mean by this email and then Jeff bezos would say something like I have. No idea is on works. I. Was real pattern that developed was basis really not doing or claiming he definitely knows claiming not really no way Wayne is under the thing they did or they would ask sooner Pichai about the very granular add deal google made by an ad product, and soon I, would say I'll get back to you, which is basically all responses. So the Democrats seemed like they were coordinated to move through their documents. The Republicans seem to be doing something else that also seem coordinated intentional, but what was their focus because that seemed clear split my takeaway from Jim Jordan who? We got into earlier, he he was interviewing. As if they were all Jack Dorsey. And as we talked about like, yeah, he invited Jack Dorsey to testify, but he doesn't sit on the antidote subcommittees. Anything. He says, it just doesn't matter. So it sounded to me as if he prepared questions Jack Dorsey and then it was like, oh, he's not coming I'll ask Tim Cook the same questions. Another completely crazy moment that happened just seen by and five minute chunks is that. Represented Sensenbrenner from Wisconsin Dear Sweet Wisconsin. Definitely. Asked Mark Zuckerberg why the Donald Junior was banned from twitter and mark. Zuckerberg was happening on twitter facebook and there was just like a moment of confused silence, and then he tried to move on and that just sort of floated by in the river of chaos to tell you how much chaos there was kneeling. When you started to tell that story, I thought you were going to tell the story about when Jim Jordan asked him cook if the famous one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, Apple Super Bowl, AD was actually about twenty twenty cancel culture, which is another thing that really happened. I think that's out of context. He didn't ask him. He said clearly, this is. That's definitely what Steve Jobs was thinking IBM is canceled culture and Apple's going to break it with hammer and Jeff. Bezos said that social media is a nuance destruction machine and all this crazy stuff from that. It was a wild will that that particular question when Jim Jordan asked, do you support the cancel culture mov, you could see the CEOS like. 'cause they went in order. He asks them all in order. So First Tim Cook just like basically muttered nothing. Here's like I don't. I support speech whatever. The iphone a keyboard like that was his answer. Sooner per child also, just like muttered, right? He's like Google has always supported free expression Zuckerberg like saw the opportunity and took it and the forces of liberalism I rising I, and then basis was like I cannot. I cannot do in like went for it, and that was just totally insane moment. But it also seems like the Republicans were intentional to try to create their own moments where they were yelling at CEOS about bias on platforms is obviously something cover a. At. You were paying a lot of attention that case you're paying a lot of attention to it. Do you think that was effective in creating because you know there's like a parallel conservative Universe Jim? Jordan was on Tucker. Carlson. Last night like was that effective or d think that the CEO's were able to sort of tamp down on interesting the Tucker Carlson pointed out that Google and other companies are all big donors to Jim Jordan another folks. So that is a weird side, but I think it was actually besides the moment where they mixed up twitter with facebook I. Think this was much more effective off. Off Topic yelling about technology than we usually see like are genuinely issues that like they are upset about that, they could point to largely around like cove nineteen misinformation and they could at least like pick those topics and stick to them rather than kind of asking vague questions about like, why is my phone listening to me? Well, they're definitely asked questions about why are my campaign emails getting filtered by G mail? Yes. I should. I should mention that they have really and they have all of these cases where they ask about extremely specific one off incidents that anyone who has used social media knows happens constantly. And, then turn them into a sinister pattern. But I think they managed to come off as sounding more like they understood what they were talking about the unusual. I think that was a real theme of the hearing, Casey. What did you think of this sort of bias side show that occurred? Well, I mean the the idea that conservative voices are being suppressed is foundational to the conservative movement and is behind the rise of conservative talk radio. It was behind the rise of Fox News. Now that social media exists, we have seen it in this new form, but it is sort of being presented as extra, sinister and worthy of. Some sort of legislative intervention what frustrates me about it is that much more than newspapers or or cable news like Mark Zuckerberg Dorsey. These people benefit hugely from having all possible voices on their platform. None of them is incentivized to drive conservatives off their platform. What they are incentivized to do is have rules that make the place safe and welcoming. So that people want to hang out there and so to the extent that there are issues on the platform, they've largely come because these platforms have rules. And you know you would think that a bunch of free marketeers would realize that the alternative to the system that they're so mad about would be creating a new system, but they don't seem at all interested in doing that. So I just sort of dismissed all of them as charlatans I actually thought it was interesting that the opposite track came up, which was the Stop Hey for profit campaign I kind of wasn't expecting that. The representative Raskin I believe asked facebook. Basically, why aren't you kicking more hate speech off. I forget who else asked like look is the point that you're so big. You don't care about advertiser boycotts I. Mean, you know it will here. Here is a fact that the number one complaint that facebook gets from its users, the thing that users. About. FACEBOOK is that it removes too much content and so if you're running the place, you do have to take these complaints seriously in a way. Right? It might not be you know that you shadow band conservative whatever that even means on social network in twenty twenty. But the fact that you're removing content is really upsetting people. So you can't dismiss that idea entirely, but I still don't feel like we're having that intellectually honest conversation about it. So this was definitely I feel like you can connect the you control distribution. We're GONNA show the abuses of power narrative. We got other. Democrats. With the you control distribution. You're banning conservatives right like I. Think what's Sensenbrenner Again, cups and conservatives are consumers to is that people don't realize that like fifty percent of the population in many ways. But facebook has like famous conservatives working its highest levels Kevin. We last week, we're talking about Kevin Roose keeps sharing the list. List of the most engaged content from crowd tangle. It's all conservative content, and that's so problematic for facebook that they're. They're pushing back with other metrics and graphs of their own, making the facts just aren't there, but it doesn't seem to be convincing. Brett Kevin is being asked to recuse himself from facebook case because he's like best friends with facebook I, AP I wrote a column almost two years ago. Now, arguing that conservatives were trying to redefine. Any conservative identified person having any unwanted outcome on a social network, right? So bias is your name was higher than mine in search results. Bias is used suggested that I follow a Democrat and not a Republican right, and if you take action on your policies that apply to everyone against me a conservative that is biased against conservatives, right. So and by the way I have to say this has been hugely successful because we've talked about it. How many minutes now and the longer that these discussions. Discussions. Go on. They just sort of refi people's minds. The idea that there really is a vast conspiracy to silence conservative speech because he's networks are so big millions of conservatives are having experiences like this every day, and now there is an ideology that is basically a religion for them to attach to, which is although Silicon Valley liberals are out to get. Reason I wanted to talk about the conservative side show, which in many ways was a circus is it feels like the notion that we should be punitive to the companies or mad at the company's. Bipartisan, right we were. We were not looking at a hearing where the Democrats were on the attack. Republicans are saying we love. Apple. We're looking at hearing where they were. Everyone was mad. There are a couple of exceptions to that. There were a couple of I think sensenbrenner and a few other folks were like look we want to be clear. Big is not bad. We just WANNA make sure we're not punishing you for your success, but you were like almost entirely, right? Yeah. I. Mean I. think that's it's important to. To capture that mood like Jeff Bezos Mark Zuckerberg, Tim, Cook soon. Darpa, try they usually get to finish whatever sentence they start saying. Right. They're not used to being interrupted. Their thoughts are usually like you know they get to live in complete sentences and people take them seriously here in five in intervals, they were interrupted almost every time they started speaking to be told that they were wrong that they were filibuster at one point Sicily said stop thinking is for the questions. We can just assume they're all good questions. They. Were getting yelled at and they're going yell that about a variety of things that were pretty specific. So you kind of in your kind of structure here. The first one was controlling distribution. What did you hear as a hearing went on the indicated to that? The committee had a case here? I think the apple's APP store is one thing you know charging thirty percent cuts on certain things is just controlling an APP store. It's the same thing with Amazon's marketplace. They can inherently in control what gets placed and what gets sold and you know if they want to play with search results on Amazon, they can do that, and then on facebook and Google, it's not just like products and software that's information. And it could be information when it's like Google. Google. Stealing yelps, texture views right in putting those in its little info boxes in search queries in facebook if facebook is just like an. Mation, distribution platform and. It can decide Algorithm Mickley. Knowingly. What people get to see this bution was very keen to the committee's hearing yesterday and they pointed out different aspects in which you know each company exhibited that kind of behavior. So the one that will you bring up apple? We wrote about this, say there's much emails. Apples document production is just one hundred and thirty pages of unrelated emails and whatever order see it's like scan through it. So there's a lot of little stories in there. There's one about right to repair and apple realizing it needed to repair. By watching PR people operate by reading their emails journalists. Very entertaining. They're like we had a break like here's our strategy. Here's we're GONNA. That's all in there. You can look at it, but there's a lot about the APP store itself and how they're going to use the mechanics of the APP store to control their platform, and it started at the beginning like the first emails in this production from twenty, ten there. From Phil, Schiller Steve Jobs saying, are we GONNA? Let Amazon Sell Books in the kindle store. Store, it felt like I saw an Amazon ad was hard to watch this hard to watch this ad where a person's reading a book on an iphone in the kindle APP in the pick up an android phone keep reading. He's like literally like it was hard to watch like Schiller's at home like pain what a customer is having an experience that good it really just. Heart and so he's like it was hard to watch. You fours Steve Jobs. They're like we gotta shut it down jobs is the bookstore will be the only bookstore on the APP. Store. That's the way it's going to be everyone's gotta used to it. We know that restricting payments will hurt other things, but that's what we're doing and they started there in two thousand ten and they pulled it out, and then that ladders up into everything that we've seen with, hey, ladders up into the analysis group showing up to. Apple, can pay them to say that there's independent study has revealed. Everybody has a thirty percent cut. It has landed up into Tim Cook, forwarding. He gets a letters from developers that are in this direction. It's like apples breaking my heart and he just like Ford's it. Tim, Cook forwards that email to filter credit eighty, just as thoughts like amazing like they are constantly thinking about the APP store as a mechanism of control for the platform in the leverage and other deals. So the other one was apple is this Amazon one which I have very mixed feelings on saying that this is bad or legal I'm curious for all of your thoughts famously. Did, not have the prime video APP on the Apple TV and all these other places apple, Amazon came to a deal. There's an entire presentation in this production like the slide deck of how the deal is going to work. Apple got to be the preferred seller of its own product. So third parties cancel. Apple. Products, Amazon pages, they got. They have a custom by flow. They've custom product pages, all the stuff in return. Amazon got a lower commission on the APP store and gets to Selatan products which no. No like you can rent a movie from the Amazon APP on the Apple TV, no one else gets to it in one world. This is just pure platform collision, right? Apple cut VIP deal for big companies because it wanted something and you could say this is legal in another world. It's like this is how deals work apple something valuable. Amazon s something valuable and they came to a conclusion wherever made more money and quite frankly the consumer experience platform has got better. How do you read that? Casey? That is good and fair analysis of it. I. Think I did read slightly more scandalous. Tones into it in part because apple would never acknowledge that some developers are more important to it than others even though if you assume that that's true, I think maybe one of the things that's frustrating about it is there is no transparency accountability around which developers get sweetheart deals is that once you hit a certain threshold of revenue will cut your price. Why couldn't they extend that deal to everyone right? Or is it just if we withhold something that seems particularly valuable, we can eventually drag you to the table. Table, which is sort of what seems like happened here. I think in all cases, what I'm always looking for is the accountability, right like and some sense of of equitable treatment of developers and I understand the guys are always going to get the best treatment, but it can that be publicly visible. Can it be acknowledged and there'd be routes for others to achieve that same level of success and treatment, and that I'll just seems missing here. Did you buy Tim Co? He said it twice. It was obviously A. Glimmer, of sympathy for all four CEOS. There is a lot of reporting that they had spent months preparing for this hearing like being grilled there, they'd hire outside law firms. They. Practiced they all clearly had soundbites memorized in none of them. Got To say him because it kept getting interrupted. Tim Cook had this one where he is like if we're the gatekeepers, the gates are open wider than ever. We've gone from five hundred. APPS to one point seven, he said like. A whole speech. and. The thing is there's fierce competition for developers. They don't like our store can do for android the windows. For xbox and PS. Four. Which I was like the idea that adobe is going to be like we don't want to be on the IPAD. Here's PS. Four Photoshop is insanity to me. I'm going to build a spreadsheet. APP. For the five. That's how frustrated with Tim Cook. To that ring. True to you I. Mean, there's no, it does not ring true. There is a, there is a duopoly. In the United States when it comes to smartphones, iphones have majority share in the United States and you can't say, well, you know there's there's a rogue fork of android in Malaysia that you could go develop for if you really wanted to and have that come across as a credible argument to Americans. Right it is. Natural for any monopolist to spend most of its time, arguing that it is much smaller and much less consequential as as you think it is and they're essentially always asking you to ignore what is in front of your face, which is that they are the giant. They are in control. What they say goes, and it doesn't matter which small businesses get hurt along the. The. Way I would point out that the contact and we're gonNA talk about earnings eventually. But the context for that is apple had its biggest third quarter ever this month, their revenues went up eleven percent year over year, they're making obviously making billions of dollars in their services revenue, which is a lot of the narrative around the APP stores increasing that services line. Also went up. I think it was thirteen billion. So you're right. They're very big in their earnings the day after the hearing did nothing. To reduce that impression. I want to switch to Amazon a little bit McKenna. You really focused Amazon was basis first time up there. They came at him a lot about marketplace. How did you think that went I think it went pretty good. I. Think. John Paul specifically was just like killer her questions with breakout star. Yeah. She was just like killer and she's the representative for. SEATTLE. So this is where Amazon is right. So she just like killed it and. And I think there were a couple of instances in the documents and in questioning yesterday that really pulled important things out there was like testimony from one bookseller who was like, yeah. We just can't sell a category of books and we don't know why Amazon doesn't let us do that just like testimony like that or even when it comes to like acquisitions, the ring acquisition especially, I wrote about that today through the documents and how. They said, this is for market position. This is a for technology, your talent or anything. We just bought this and that's something that base said again, yesterday he was just very clear. It's like, yeah, we do buy things market position, which is like so insane just here like the richest person in the world. But like, yeah, we're buying market position. It's just what happens. That's another one I have mixed feelings right, and by the way, people should read McKenna story because those documents have just a very funny breakdown like the pros and cons of buying. Buying ring in many of the cons like what if this turns into nest, which if you're just the verge cast listeners like it's just like the Keyword Bingo, but it's fine to say, we're buying market position like this isn't the best product out there, but it's the category of video. doorbells is not huge, right? So to by the the market leader in video doorbells is maybe the most rational use of the money. What is the problem that you think the committee was trying to show an address sense of we're just going to market position. Pointing out, they can just do whatever they want and how casual it is, and there really isn't. It's really funny to read an email like that, and we could buy it or we could just copy it or are. We could just watch. You know that was one of the emails that base from someone. Those are just three options you know and it's like just pick and choose you know. Pointed out like a lot. Just that email itself really pointed out just how easy it is for them. They used a lot of that time history to talk about copycat behaviors and to talk about just like you know buying up competitors and it just seeing that all in one little e mail having to do with the ring was like really i. think it was really kind of I opening and especially like useful for the committee. So Amazon got hit a lot for the data collection side of it of copying competitors. bezos did not seem to have great answers there. Right. So that's the. The thing they got in trouble with this. There is that Wall Street. Journal article from like April where employees were literally like, yeah. We dip into data and we use that to guide our own private label products and everybody was like Whoa and Amazon basins. Yesterday said, well, we do have a policy that bans that but giant pointed out yesterday. It's like, okay. So what's your enforcement look like you can have the policy, but like if you don't enforce it, then it's like meaningless. And then yesterday I. Think Paul was like, can you give me a yes or no answer? Do you dip into data and he's like I can't I can't give you. Yes or no, and we're just like we're looking into it. The story had anonymous sources. So that isn't very helpful to us. You know what I mean. So that was one of the main things and that Wall Street Journal article and I think it's the same kind of examples in the committee's documents. They point out specific examples like car trunk, organizers of all things. It's like weird little products like Amazon's like this is a little hot. Maybe we should do that. So I, I think. I, think they made a good case yesterday. Yesterday on that. Yeah. I mean bezos brought up that Wall Street Journal, Article himself twice, and he was like, well, your policy against it. But I can't guarantee never happened. Then there is a strange just didn't come across clear I. Think I know what the committee was trying to get at their like US aggregate seller data when there's only three sellers and then only to sellers? Yes, I. Think what they're getting at is when you're down to the aggregate data of two companies, you heard effectively looking at individual data. What is the problem? They're like the I get what you're doing. You're just reducing the denominator to get to one, but like it, why is that particular problem? Right? Well, none of these. Dipping into individual seller data and looking at aggregate data. That's not a legal. There is no law. This is all voluntary of Amazon. So they have a voluntary policy where like we can't do individual seller data, but they say nothing against aggregate and aggregate what you're getting at eight. Here you is. Does the same thing if it's just like some goofy little product they. They bring up pop stock. It's all the time before pop tops in a moment. Right? There's only like one pop. So company like you know pop soggy, it was kind of an innovative product. It's like well, if there's only two of them and use the aggregate data, you you you have everything you need to know you know about that product line looking aggregate. If that's what you decide to qualify as do you as you're looking through the other Amazon documents and other stuff. So anything jump out at you is something the committee was trying to prove or get at. The questioning seemed very focused on. Like are you using the state at a copy products? Are you buying things? You shouldn't buy. There's one question which I did not understand why came up about DMC. Take downs on twitch and Jeff as just had this look of panic in his eyes. He's like I don't know man I bought Wedge because my kids want to. Do something like that was like the side show stuff, but the real focus here, it just seemed like it was definitely in the marketplace, right? Amazon, everyone came at Amazon for the marketplace. That's what everybody knows him as like they have all these little sides. They got rain. They got Alexa Alexa was one thing too. That was kind of interesting. It's like. Are you buying things like ring to put Alexa into and dislike expand your like Titan Ism as like an Internet Internet connected home. Thing and make that more closed off and walled gardening. That was one thing. But no, it was just focusing on how much power they have to kind of change. What happens in the marketplace to kind of decide what companies in what products are able to come up on the first page of results. You know that's also something that they dug into Google and in something that one of those like themes that kind of ties everything together. We should say they all spend a lot of time talking about counterfeit goods, and why is it Amazon removed? Fake stuff from the platform and how much is it profiting off of you know selling pick rolexes? Is it surprising? The whole foods didn't show up at all they're. Like that is a really massive thing. Amazon owns that. Is it moving into a huge new product category? I think whole foods is not an online marketplace, which was the title of the hearing, not that that restricted anybody from doing anything except that, one of the things Amazon says is we have lots of competition from offline marketplaces, right? Brought up kroger a lot I mean, this is the case he's point. They all made. It seem like they were beset at any moment. They could be crushed by the likes of stop and Shop Right? Like I think the point though was really on the. Digital. Experience Consumers have and like I, don't know Ho-. Foods fits. Into that narrative, especially, because it is itself not dominant like they bought it because you needed to grow in their. Good at that at my question for you on the Amazon stuff was when you think about, we talk about two thirty a lot right like you and I in particular spent a lot time to thirty, which regulates with the platform can do with content. There's not really an equivalent of two thirty for goods on store. Right like there's some case is out there saying like you're liable for what what happens on your online store page, but Amazon doesn't have that like second order of like Messi nece around it that twitter and facebook to with two thirty, I. Mean, it gets invoked a lot for marketplace's, but it's way messier. Well, I just wanted to like this question at counterfeits question about ranking the store like they are even more free than any twitter is to to sort tweets algorithm. Algorithm clear to modern like it just their store. Do you think that they're like that Algorithm transparency? Your wire things ranked. Did you catch a sense that that's where the regulation is GonNa go. So much of the conversation around Amazon really felt like it was individuals sellers being wronged for reasons of Amazon being unresponsive or stealing. It's data. So I don't know it didn't. It didn't seem like a really big focus of the hearing, but it is a huge deal. Yeah. The, digital marketplace frame of this, which is where we have talked to. Cellini. That's where he's going right like facebook and Google very digital. They have like they don't do physical goods. Really. Apple is the APP store. It's all digital goods. Amazon is the one where it's. Front to a lot of physical things, and that is the only place where I can see this regulation needing to make some sort of like major meaningful distinction in I. Didn't see it in the hearing, but I was curious of you caught a glimmer of it. I'm not positive that they have to make a huge distinction there like depending on what they come up with because. So much of this is about their companies and whatever product they produced. The issue is more or less whether or not they're being surveilled and unfairly by targeted and crushed by that data surveillance. All right. We have gone for forty minutes. We should take a quick break. I said I wasn't going to go by company and it happens. So we should come back and talk with facebook Ango. We'll be right back. This is advertiser content.

Yeah. But you said something to me yesterday was interesting, which is everyone else's problems are forward looking and it feels like facebook's problems are actually in the past break for people explain what you mean. Yeah. So when Congress is looking at any trust with respect to these four companies for three of them, it's It's sort of about the marketplaces that their operating right now with facebook, the question is much more about should we have allowed it to buy serum? Should we have allowed it to buy WHATSAPP and most of the antitrust conversation that was around facebook yesterday was all about that. What did Mark Zuckerberg know about Instagram, and when did he know it? We wrote a story based on some documents that the house released yesterday. In which facebook has clearly identified instagram as a competitor. In at least some ways and wants to go after it and knock it off the table, and so that's kind of where the focuses their facebook and Burke did get a lot of other questions yesterday, but it tended to be much more about content moderation and things that don't have a lot to do with antitrust. So there was weird section where they asked the face. Face Research APP in the novel, Vpn? Any kind of got lost well, explain what happened and I'm curious reactions. Yeah. So facebook has a bunch of nifty tech tools to figure out what's trending which APPs or the kids using, and so that can essentially have an early warning system if it needs to consider acquiring something or more likely in these days, go out clone it. and. So Zuckerberg was asked about the way that the company uses these systems and if they are anti competitive I, think you know traditional antitrust law probably would not say copying an APP feature is anti competitive, but could lobby written in the future about it shirt I. Think the one that caught me was I mean, this is what I'm. McKenna's points from earlier is like one of the themes here is, are you so dominant that you can collect data that's unfair and then use that to crush or killer competitors, and definitely bought the Inaba VPN to do it. That's true. Now, when I've asked executives at facebook about this, what they'll say is they don't get surprised anymore. When you have three point, one billion people using your apps around the world. You know what links they're sharing, you know what they're talking about. And so you're not going to need some kind of specialized tool to know that WHATSAPP is really taking off. Right. So they would argue that, yes, these tools were useful to them, but you know at their scale, they know what's popular now, which doesn't really seem like addresses, the problem is reached. The fact that we're so big that we're all knowing is maybe not the defense that they sometimes presented as so here's what I didn't get. I thought, Zuckerberg I want to the instagram. What's about who's issues, but on the facebook research front, the data front, they him about this APP facebook research, which you were giving to teens. They were deploying with an enterprise certificate that story broke apple revoke the certificate, and all of facebook's internal APPs went dark, and this is a scandal story after story about it, they went on for two days. So I can I, don't recall that APP? Just how he you know, he remembers the day that all facebook's internal APPS went down and people couldn't go to the cafeteria. I would agree I found that answer. Extremely, ed? Persuasive. that. Do you think that was like actually strategic for him to be like, I, don't know and then come back later and correct the record I do remember when that happened I. Mean. I really don't know I mean also you know during a six hour hearing, it's also possible that you just you get flustered or you miss here something or or something because. Yeah. As as you say, I'm sure he remembers the day that apple turned off their internal APPS I mean. Honestly. Seems like an opportunity to talk about apple's market power, and the fact that you know a day of work canceled at facebook because apple got mad. But I think most of the CEO's didn't go into yesterday a wanted to pick fights with each other. It was kind of sad that they didn't. I was Kinda hoping that Tim Cook take a shot at soccer burger. Point that the other two APP platforms I was expecting it. It was there. It was. There was all there. So cellini ended and he ended the whole meeting with closing statement. He said, some of these companies didn't get broken out. They all need to get regulated in the off too much power that some of them I. don't these breaking up apple. What sort of break. Right like. The division get sent into the corner thing about what it's done. Right. Does should spin out the finder team I've always wanted to. A clean is always that they want to. They want the APP store to be separate from the IPHONE. Basically, that's the thing I always hear. Can't break I. Think you can write some strong regulations but not playing you're on store, right. But like Elizabeth Warren's point was it's cleaner if it's two companies, but it's still a gigantic remedy that I don't think there's a lot of like like consumer or public opinion is going to walk into an Apple Cup I think you'll radio at marketplace. It seems very clear that we says some of them she broken up he is talking about facebook. I have a twenty percent conference level. He might be talking with Google and Youtube as well. But if he's going to say some of the need to get broken up like it's facebook, did you hear anything yesterday that supported that conclusion or Saudi stocks I? MEAN HE I don't remember which Republican it was, but he was like the Obama FTC looked at this and they said it was minding love. Obama. Right. Like. Why would we go back in time to relook at I? Mean, there is a belief and I mean. Somebody who thinks there could be a lot of benefit in instagram and WHATSAPP being different companies from facebook. And the reason you ask. So many questions about that acquisition as you're making the case that it never should have been approved in the first place, and so now you need to remedy it. So that was actually like the entire thrust of the argument against facebook yesterday. I think, you could probably make just as good a case that Amazon after spin out aws, but lawmakers chose not to make that case. Yeah. I think that also gets into. Politics of the acquisition of the time. To his credit is like nobody knew instagram would actually be a success like we made it a success. It didn't happen by itself. I, don't know if the lawmakers. By award, these guys said, but I don't know that he actually made that case very persuasively. and. Who knows I mean? That's like anything could have happened. Right? Cram could've stayed independent and rapidly grown and overtaken facebook like that's something that could have happened. It could have kind settled into a middle zone like snapchat or twitter seems more likely to me although I think probably would have been bigger than those two but. You're never going to know I mean it is true that facebook gave Mike and Kevin it instagram enormous resources. A lot of the reasons why Mike and Kevin sold was because running tiny startup that's blowing up is absolutely exhausting Mike. Krieger. was dragging his laptop all around San. Francisco. Because the servers were melting at all times of the day whenever Justin Bieber. Posted like the site stopped working and they really we need help. Finding a person who can quickly fix this? So we don't have to like that is the reason that they were entertaining these offers and wanted to sell it. So that is also thing that happened. Do you think that that same kind of argument or approach can apply to what's up? What's up basically did not come up yesterday and all the focus on Instagram, but that's the other one, right? Yeah, and we know weirdly a lot less about that acquisition I. Think it's because people in America just have so much less love for what's APP generally. That, it's never seemed as important. What happened to WHATSAPP as what happens to instagram even though WHATSAPP, is used, you know way more, it probably has way more engagement even than instagram does so I don't know why that didn't come up as often. We know there was a competitive bidding war for that as well. Goule. Wanted it as well. You know Mark Zuckerberg made them an offer, they can't refuse. Do you think everyday Google's we should've spent more money on what's whatsapp like this could have been solved. Should have, but Google has been placed under an ancient curse that prevents them from ever making the right decision about any social product. So it was doomed never to happen. It's fun looking through the documents and watching them casually say they should buy facebook dot com. Yeah, that. Point. That is how they talk like the window into these executives just casually being like we should just this thing or maybe not, or we should just copied ourselves and kill it before it gets any traction like it's repeated over and over again last facebook question. This one is like harder to parse because I. There's a chance, it's October is just joking around but. But. He's in many of these emails. He's like the thing about startups, as you can always buy them, which I think the committee thinks is a smoking gun, right? Like facebook's entire plan is to buy the competition to get the data from wherever they get it to say, oh, man, this apps popping, we just buy it and kill it before it competes with us. I. Think he actually said at one point. That's a joke. Yes, he did and I believe that you know it was two thousand, twelve, right? He was probably still in his mid twenties. At that point, the company was a lot smaller like people were joking around like there's more loose talk when companies are younger and I do think. It was it was part of that. I think the more interesting question becomes. Let's say facebook is telling the truth about everything. Let's say they thought it was going to be a successful acquisition, but they never knew it was gonna big as it became today and they invested in it and it got super big. Okay. Well, now, it's as big as it is. Should they be allowed to keep? Keep it or should they be forced to spend it out and if you're GONNA force them to spin it out. What's the argument that you'RE GONNA. Make about why one question that I have a lot is clearly the referral they're gonNa make, and it seems like if you don't have some other reason, we've heard hints that there's some other reason, the FTC scrutinize this that will eventually be revealed. But what you're saying is the antitrust standard at the time, the Consumer Hartman stand, which is still our standard. Says, you have to prove prices will go up both products for free. You're screwed. Right? There's nothing to review because you're not gonNA prove prove that free products are gonNA get more expensive. I think it's pretty unfair if you change the standard and you go back in time and say you missed that standard. So I think there has to be something else there. Well, what was the standard by which at and T. was broken up? Right? Like presumably at and T. didn't used to be that big, and then it just got really big and then they broke it up at least. That's the thumbnail understanding I have of that break-up. Well, yeah. But then reformed itself. Right. But because of lax antitrust regulation, right? Like it wasn't a naturally occurring phenomenon that all those APPS got back to the other or was that just sort of like inattention to capitalism It's like in the seventies and eighties. This is Tim moves book the cursive bigness in the seventies and eighties Robert Bork I can't talk about Robert on this podcast. Are we doing this right now. Robert was very influential judge Appellate Judge Federal Appellate? Judge. And basically moved the antitrust law to the consumer harm standard as part of a movement called and economics. A whole thing Robert. Bork. Mostly famous because he was not appointed. He was nominated Supreme Court by Reagan but they leaked video tape rental history, and then he didn't get nominated and that is where the expression getting bork's comes from. This is all true Netflix's still has to abide by videotape data privacy act is a whole. This is all true when facebook and Netflix had some partners, Nansen? Partnership. To. Automatically share your net flicks, watch history to facebook. They're like pending the change of this law which we are working on Robert Bork. He haunts us all. I'm sorry, I can't believe this much. Yeah I. think that's just like the law changed in the in the seventies and eighties, the standard change. The conversation right now is a very much about changing it back months and months ago, pre pandemic, we had an economist from I. Think it was Nyu Thomas Philippon came on the show, and he was like look you have this natural ab test going on in the world where the European Union when it formed was like, how do we get an economy like America's? So, we'll just take their competition policies pretty good, and at the same time we changed consumer harm standard. So everything you're seeing the EU is basically our old competition antitrust standard in. You can see how active they are in everything. Here's a new consumer welfare standard. Whether you believe, this is actually a functional Ab test given. The state of both governments is up for debate, but that was his point I thought. It was spare can say.

So great to have you. Here, thank you. We're really excited to talk about a mood. It's such an interesting and important project. I'll give a little bias in that. I'm really interested in this in particular because I've been on the board of Sfar for many years, which is the issue of the Torah Academy, the Talmud Academy for lgbtq folks are that comes out of the Experience Lgbtq Q. Folks. It's probably a better way to say it and. When I first heard about a mood I was so excited to hear that there was something that seemed similar from edge use of color perspective. So it's something that I've really wanted to explore for a long time that both of us have and and we're really thrilled to finally have this opportunity. So Mirror I was wondering if we could start with a little bit of the origin story of a mood. In, two, thousand, eighteen, I was invited to be in the Selah Cohort fifteen of bend the arc four juice of color by Jews of color and there I met Ya McCoy will meet her the year previously. And part of that training. Was a study that we that she called. J O C. Tour Academy. And it was several afternoons where we would look text from an anti oppression lands, and at the end of that hurt I was sitting with you who the webster was hard the cohurt. We looked at each other and I said, why does this have to be only part of this training? We need this to be real, and so we started talking with start talking about that. So that was may of two, thousand eighteen. By June or July. Are Corman had come back from Israel at, pass it to you. I did a fulbright year in Israel I live in. Jerusalem and when it came back, I became involved in. J. Fridge which is to cherish on economic justice. And Colored. Caucus. Part of my involvement. J.. Fridge I was connected to Huda Webster An. I approached you Huta saying that I wanted to teach a small class on the politics of Hebrew pronunciation and I wanted to teach it for Jews of color of an Alexi that you're smiling because acid is immensely nerdy deeply nerdy. Added belts deeply important but you huda one up to me and he said what if instead of just having your class, we actually create a container for this kind of learning to happen more often. and. So that really launched the idea of. Jesus, Colored Tour Academy, which became a mood colored tour academy and we started out by a every other week having a person in the community, a Jewish person of color in a community teach whatever they wanted and we we started her first Beta run I'm really got to see what what kinds of topics were interesting. How did the groups of people showed up for different topics differ in and we basically got to conduct all this research We launched our first full year after the high holidays. This past fall in two thousand nineteen. And we just completed our first full year of classes. We got here because for as long as there have been Jewish. People color navigating predominantly white Jewish space the roots have been growing and deepening. People like you. Huda. Myself were able to found something like this because of all that work that had been happening. JESSOP. Color entering wet Jewish is being Jewish spaces and also getting to know one another.
So Fat, So Brave: COVID Charged
"Hello. Hello, hello. Happening cake. All my goodness, why a beautiful has here on at lunch today. Three. Fat? Bitch. Proud and Latin next people. How are you doing today? Come on I, need more I. Need a little more energy. It's a weird time. It's a lot of emotions right now. So I'm like in a constant roller coaster, how actual feelings are. You know what I feel like we need to get into it right now because we went the last time, we recorded this last fall. We did Okay. So before we get into it. Ever. Might then I? We have done these episodes called so fat. So brave based on. Hashtag that Nicole, buyer Chattanooga buyers that she talks about a lot when she decided to start wearing bikinis and people would call her brave for just existing in a fat body and wearing whatever she wanted which is. Crazy that you would call somebody. like, wow, you're so brave and so. We do these episodes and I, know the loyal listeners already know there's been a couple of them where we break down. Media, and fat representation fat phobia within the media. So we usually talk about film TV and this time we're adding social media to the mix because there's a lot of body positivity So media now podcast things like that So we're GONNA get into it but before. Let's talk about what we've been doing during this wonderful worldwide pandemic. I. Gosh. I will say. I feel like I'm a lot closer to you too. Because of it, I feel like I see you more often than my own family. Threw facetime. So. That's been a positive. The negative is I can't believe we are living in this world. And this is actually happening and how quickly it went to. Shit Yeah. Doesn't take long in the US OF A. Yeah? No, it's what, what was your question? I think I already got distracted by your been doing, what's will give us some updates since we last spoke to you, I, don't know if you want to open this tin because I'm on I, haven't even recorded my show that radio since right before this started. So I, have literally been just. making it. Basically, it's been. Nice to get closer to you in like you know talk to certain people more that I haven't talked to in like months and some people even year's same time we are. In the midst of I say pandemic, right? Because it's not just the Kobe nineteen. Now, we're in like A. Unnecessary racial uprising as well, and it almost feels like we're also having like battles internally because of all the circumstances So it's been really Really heavy to say it nicely But I've also been amazed by my strength which I never realized and I've made a lot of big changes. In my own personal life. So it's really given me time to sit with myself, and so I see like though flaws and the beauty in who I am. And then I obviously see that all my loved ones and people around me as well because we're so grateful. For everything we do have in these moments So it's kind of a back and forth feeling which kind of what I said earlier but there's definitely been a lot of fat yet this time as well. And so it's been really interesting to just kind of observe also try to be mindful of my energy while I navigate this present world.
Interviewing Bucks' legend Marques Johnson
"And it's our Pleasure to welcome in a two time Emmy Award winning bucks. TV analysts a five time eh, NBA All Star. Did also play at Bella and won a national championship. That's Marcus Johnson here with us on the Zach Yelp show. Marcus appreciate the time How you doing? I'm doing bills. Everything is no good. All can play good benefits in basketball family from your lips to God's ears. Can't wait to see what's gonna happen in the N B. A bubble. I saw video back in February, You were wearing a Kobe Bryant jersey and you actually threw it down in your road. I'm still dunking at 64 years old. Have you been dunking at all during the pandemic? Or was that a one time thing at 64 district Cream donuts, Bad eye. You must have been nervous, right? Well, every year on my birthday, I do a dung just to see if I could still do it. I didn't plan on doing it this year. Just chill out at my son's a SIA. All over social media. They have got to do it contingent to the one in Sydney one in with that inside, And so, of course, I did a couple of warm up to feel pretty good and And we decided absent phone brought up two tackles. Omar, you know, taco fallen. Whoever jumped over him, Aaron Gordon. Whoever dumped over way last year Next year I'll be 65. That's the official retirement age. I've been retired. I'm Travis. You have to do one more 65 years old. I gotta pay the bed after that. I don't blame you. I don't. I can't even dunk right now. I can't imagine being able to dunk when you're in your sixties. Marcus Johnson here with us on the show. When we look at this MBA restart. We know that the Bucks are the best team in the league. From a record standpoint right now they're going to be the number one seed in the Eastern Conference. The's eight games inside of the bubble. What do you look for out of them where they could really ease themselves back into playing shape? The annex a great question. I was just kind of pondering that looking at the books. Play that scrimmage against neworleans the other night and You know, I just don't think that teams should put too much into the eight. Feeding games. It's a gradual buildup. You want to be planned your best basketball. Obviously when, when the playoffs start. This is such a weird. Praise the different type of experiment. Probably guys. And so, um, you know, see positives from the brother. I've seen not good things about in terms of Kind of fighting since, um, some difficulties against the product in here tonight, but, you know the season games Because boom Jose lost compete. He's gonna want these guys to come out and and just so effort show competitive competitiveness from Paris. But I'm not sure about the ones. The won and lost record is important. At this stage of the game. It's all about kind of a slow, gradual buildup. I've been exploding wants to play all secure here. When you look at the team from last year to this year. What do you see is the biggest difference as they even got better from what they were last year, which was impressive. Well, I mean, ways that it rest values that they're so what he has done that He's given Chris Middleton a breather at defense. Can't Chris I was just looking up Christian defensive record 107th overall, 22nd ranked small forward LeBron and collide As I said at the top. But Chris doesn't have to get all that energy trying to beat this Great three and the win. Clare and I could focus on his office and I was a result becomes one of seven or eight guys who was Trying to suit you both 20% from the three point line, stick to the set plus from the field and monitor it from the people that I think a 20 point today. Yes, I think that's direct benefit to Chris Middleton. Eric Bledsoe also, let's not forget him, Master. He struggle big time last couple of years in the playoffs and honestly, stuff a big farm of the playoffs. Uh, this year, he seemed to be a lot more comfortable in his basketball scared now. It is kind of getting a late start based on tested positive and them in quarantine and all that stuff. How quickly he could kind of get back into a rhythm and flow going to be a big difference. But today I think this team has gotten even better, but local tradition of Robin Has really been a great great move. But John forced our president breaking Robin Lopez, and now we've got two bent beak gets standings and leave so I think the defense has been even better than the great detective team from last season. Marcus Johnson here with us it Zaki help show on CBS Sports radio doing a little bubble breakdown on the Milwaukee butts nationally. The big question about Chris Middleton is. Can the Bucks win it all with him? Be in the Bucks. Second best player. He's a two time All Star. Give me the local feel on that. Our people still concerned locally about Middleton be in that number to peace and winning the championship this year. Right here is where you go. I could go to a barber shop in the hold of the brothers give Ah, little about depended on Chris have the huge games but In terms of inside basketball people, people that have watched Chris closely like myself. I really believe that Chris, it's all about his confident being an all Star to the second consecutive D up really? Helps his belief in himself as being one of the elite players in the league and kept in one of the shooters in the league. And you couple that with the fact that he comes back, he's getting guns for arms and get this definition I've never seen before. His body status. Probably way dog looks really good, really in great shape of the Kalpoe talked about his explosion and bounciness coming back after the four months off was really, really surprised. So he's really putting the work that during this time off to come back and make himself I've been so on. But with president mentally I think that way you get tomato last year, the average with just 14 points in the field, and he left. How Laurie, pending for a big cheque of those minutes in that six game lost to the crap. You have to be enough to love. So you've got a lot to prove, but I think Based on what I'm looking at changes of his body where he is physically brave is right. But I think he's ready to make that statement. When I look at the Eastern Conference, I really do fully expect Milwaukee. To get to the finals. They were in that one seed spot last year did not get there When you look at the Eastern Conference this year, who's the biggest challenger for the Bucks when the season resumes tomorrow night? It's really interesting. You get him some. I think three really legitimate. Even the Miami that mix also, you can't count out exposure and then the butler as your lead gap, but I think there's still a little bit godly hero of none. And guys like that. And then he began by making just a little bit young and that, Betty, but I really believe that Celtics man. I mean, people talk about the Raptors, who I respect about. Nick Norris is a great coach. Brad Stevens was great, but one through four in terms of scoring and issues and problems. You know Jason Taylor planted Kemba Walker is the number one option. That's two through four group these guys to produce and I think about taking on like the game, and that's the most since that Golden State a couple of years ago, but most just like second most 1995 in terms of looking for and then when Gordon Hayward is your fourth option, going going home. What is your fourth option? And then we talk about a container my greatest been, but then this Dylan Brown watching his footwork. Watching the lip bruised stands the finishes in traffic. He's a guy that could be a real problem for team like the book had been. The wild card would be market smart. Distant Jabba, even though Marcus Smart Sixthree export out of 16 11 Marcus Smart office of players and we know how much she just underneath their skin. And so he's a guy that has given me honest as much trouble as anybody scoring effectively and officially against it, So I said that and then the two big catch I mean the pick and roll for five hours straight that Boston life's run. Those two guys found business cancer, pounded it inside a greatjob getting into the paint and score of them that I'm not gonna puke my shot and roll that movies have private medical himself. I really believe that Celtics to me that they're not deed. I think both those four score that they have been a lot of pressure on the Milwaukee ways that do the Middleton. To defend at a high level every night in order to be a minute in a series.

Sandworm: A New Era of Cyberwar and the Hunt for the Kremlin's Most Dangerous Hackers
"Everybody from the British. Ask this week's interview. Episode has any Greenberg senior writer at wired. He just SORTA book called Sand Worm New Era of cyber war in the hunt for the Kremlin's Miss, dangerous hackers, it is all about hacking group inside of the Russian government called San Worm. They were responsible for the most damaging cyber warfare attacks over the past year there behind not PECI. The hackers took out in the mayor shipping line hospitals across the U. K San has totally escalated. What we think of Cyber War, and he's book gets all into how they were discovered how they were flushed out the. The intricacies of these various hacks. It's super interesting. The book is a thrill ride. If you're looking for something that isn't the virus. This is like a thriller, a highly recommended. It was really fun to talk to her about the stuff. one thing I. WanNa know we're all at home so during this in every might hear some kids in the background. I asked you just be a little forgiving that we're all. We're all dealing with it and he was a great interview. Check Out Sandy Greenberg of sand worm, a new era of cyber war and the hunt for the Kremlin's most dangerous hack. Any Greenberg your senior writer at wired you're also the author of Sand Worm, new era of cyber war in the hunt for the Kremlin's most dangerous. Welcome glad to be here so even writing about cybersecurity frontier I think you just said two thousand six and writing about Cybersecurity, but this book sand worm as I was reading it. It seems like it's called the new era of cyber war. It seems like there's been a huge turn in sort of state-sponsored. Particularly Russians sponsored cyber attacks. How did you come onto that notion? How did you begin reading this book I'm I'm very curious how you see. See that turn happening well. In late twenty sixteen, my former colleague Kim Zetter she had been the one who really covered state sponsored hacking in cyber war stuff, but she left wired, and this was also at the time. When you know Russian hackers were meddling in the US election, they'd hacked the democratic. National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Clinton Campaign, so my editors were really primes on face, mantra hacking all of a sudden, but what they? They really what they told me they wanted was a actually like a big takeover of the whole magazine. All about cyber war, but cyber war to me is different than those kinds of espionage election, meddling tactics so I went looking for no real cyber war story, which means to me like a actual disruptive cyber attacks, and as I looked around. It seemed like the place where that was really happening was in Ukraine not really in the US in fact maybe. Maybe what was happening in? Ukraine seemed to me like it was in some ways, the only real full blown cyber war that was actually occurring where Russian hackers were not just attacking the election which they had done, they tried this spoof the results of a presidential election, but they had also attacks media and destroyed their computers. They had attacked government agencies and tried to like destroy entire networks, and then they had turned off the power for the first time. In December of two thousand, fifteen, the the first actual blackout triggered by hackers, and just as I was look into this happened again the the effect, the seem hacker group caused a blackout this time in the capital of Kiev so I wince looking in Ukraine for this cyber war story that. Turned into a cover story for wired that kind of gave editors what they wanted, but then also kept unfolding This cyber war kept growing in scope and scale and. The original story written for wired was kind of about the fact that you could look to Ukraine to see the future of cyber war that will what was happening. There might soon spread to the rest of the world. And that is actually what happens to like just after we publish that cover story to same hackers released this climactic terrible cyber attack in Ukraine. Called Not Petiot that spread beyond Ukrainians became the worst cyberattack history cost ten billion dollars, so when that happened, that was when I saw that there was potential to do a book about this that it was not just a kind of case study about Ukraine or even kind of predictive story, but a an actual full story arc about this one group that had carried out the what I would say was not only the first. First Real Cyber War, but the worst cyberattack in history and the you know I wanted to capture the the Ark of that story in the effects, the real experience of cyber war. Yeah, so the group is called sand worm in this is just one of the the sort of opening arcs of the book is how they've come. They come to be named this because references and code walk people through just like it's so. relatable that like even these hackers are using using this language that leads them recalled Sandwich Tell people about it. So when I started to look into the origins of this group after that second blackout attack I I found that this this company called eyesight partners which have been acquired by fire I I, said partners was the first to find these hackers in twenty, fourteen, basically using fishing in kind of typical espionage tactics, plant malware in the networks of typical Russian hacking targets like groups across Eastern, Europe and NATO in a look like what they were doing was just kind of typical espionage. They were planning. This by wear calls lack energy buds will first of all they could see that they were rushing, because they had this server that they were using to administer some of these attacks and they. They left the server, so anybody could look at it in. There was a kind of Russian language to file for how to use black energy on the service, so these guys seem like they were rushing, but even more interesting in some ways. was that they to track each victim each instance of black energy? This malware has little campaign code in each campaign was a reference to the science fiction novel Dune and you know so like one of them was something about Iraq is, and then one of them is about the sutter cars, these like imperial soldiers in in that SCI FI universe so I said partners named this group sand worm, because well just because it's a cool. Name associated with doing, but it turned out to me. It became this very powerful because a sandwich miss this monster that lies beneath the surface, and occasionally arises from underground to do terribly destructive things. partners didn't know that at the time, they they soon afterward realized what sand. was doing was not just espionage, but they were actually doing reconnaissance for disruptive cyberattacks. They were also hacking power grids. They were planning black energy, not only in the European Eastern European targets in the US power grid networks as well. The Ultimately Syndrome was the first twenty fifteen to cross that line in use black energy as the first step in a multi step attack that led to a blackout. So this was not just espionage really was kind of like you know this monster that rises from under the ground to do terrible acts of mass destruction that came to pass so one of the things that comes up over in the book. Is this growing sense of dread from security researchers and analysts? Oh this is an imminent threat to the united. States just Ukraine, but like this is happening here and then there's a sense that the United States actually open the door to this kind of warfare with stuxnet. which was an attack on Iran? How how did those connect for you that it seemed like there's a new rule of engagement new set of rules of engagement for cyber warfare that actually the United States implicitly created with with stuxnet by attacking Iran. Yeah, I mean I tried to highlight. Clearly sand worm are the real bad guys in the story, they are the actual hacker group that did these terribly reckless destructive attacks that actually in some cases put people's lives at risk, the kind of in some parts of the story they actually shutdown medical record systems and I. Think may have cost people's lives with cyber attacks today they are the actual antagonist here, but I also want to highlight the ways that the US government is is partially responsible for the state of Cyber War, and there are a few ways that that's true. I The US! Open the Pandora's box of cyber war with stuxnet. This piece of now where that. That was used to destroy Iranian nuclear enrichment centrifuges that was the first piece of our that actually have caused that physical disruption destruction, and we now see Sandra doing the same thing in Ukraine. In in fact, in some ways around the world, also the the US hordes, these kind of zero day, secret hacking techniques, some of which were stolen and leaked and used by sand worm, but then I think the in fact, the biggest way that I tried to highlight that the US is responsible or complicit or negligent. Here is that we did not call allows what Santorum was doing in Ukraine and say to Russia. We know what you're doing. This is unacceptable. Nobody should be turning out the lights. Two civilians with cyber attacks. There wasn't a message like that I. mean the Obama White House sent a message to Russia over this kind of cyber hotline to say your election hacking is not okay. We see what you're doing and we want you to stop, but they said nothing about a tube blackout attacks in Ukraine, and that was kind of implicit signal to Russia. They could keep. Keep escalating, and even as all the cyber security, researchers and Ukrainians were warning that what was happening to Ukraine, would soon spread to the rest of the world, the US government ignore this both Obama, and then the trump administration until that prediction came to pass and a sand worm cyberattack did spread to the rest of the world, and it was too late, and we all suffered globally as a result, so let's talk about patch it. WAS CATASTROPHIC IN SCOPE, right? It took out the mayor shipping line, which is a massive business. It took out some hospitals in UK like it was huge in scope. I don't think people really put it all together. Talk about how it started and how big it grew. Yeah, so not too was kind of like big apotheosis sandwich, where all of these predictions of the terribly destructive things they were doing to the rest of the world came to pass but it did it started in Ukraine. They hijacked this. The the software updates of this accounting software called me doc that is basically used by everybody in Ukraine. The quicken turbo tax of Ukraine. If you do business in Ukraine, you have to have this installed, so sanborn hijack the updates of that news to push out this worm to thousands of victims mostly in Ukraine, but it was a worm, so it's spread the mmediately end quickly kind of carpet bombs. The entire Ukrainian Internet's every computer at spread to would encrypt permanently. You could not recover the computer, so it very quickly took down pretty much every. Every Ukrainian government agency twenty two banks multiple airports for hospitals in Ukraine that I. could count and in each of these cases. What is eight took them down. I mean it destroyed essentially all of their computers, which requires sometimes weeks or months to recover from, but then as you know, this is a worm that does not respect national borders. So even though it was, it seemed to be an attack intended to disrupt Ukraine. It immediately spread beyond Ukraine's borders. Borders to everybody who had this accounting software installed? That was doing business in Ukraine and some people who didn't so that includes Maersk. The world's largest shipping firm and Fedex and Mondelez, which owns cadbury, NABISCO and ranking manufacturing firm that makes tylenol in Merck. The Pharmaceutical Company in New Jersey on each of these companies lost hundreds of millions of dollars. The scale of this is kind of difficult to capture but I in the book I tried to. To I focused in part Maersk because it is just a good company to look at because you can. They had this gigantic global physical machine that is they have seventy six ports around the world that they own as well as these massive ships that have tens of thousands of shipping containers on them. And I told the story of how on this day seventeen of their terminals of were entirely paralyzed by this attack with ships arriving with just. Piles of containers on them. Nobody could unload. Nobody knew what was inside of nobody knew how to load or unload them with around the world of seventeen terminals, thousands of trucks, Semitrailers, carrying containers were lining up in Lyons miles long because the gates that were kind of checkpoints to check in the these trucks to drop something off or pick it up. They were paralyzed as well. This was a fiasco on a global scale is responsible for a fifth of the world's lable shipping capacity. They were truly just a rendered brain dead by this attack, but yeah displayed out at all of these different victims MERC had to borrow their own each vaccine from the Center for Disease Control because they're manufacturing. Manufacturing was disrupted by this, and it ultimately spread to a company called nuance, nate speech to text software. They have a service that does this for hospitals across the US to dozens of our possibly hundreds of American hospitals at this backlog of transcriptions to medical records that were lost because of this, and that resulted in patients, being do for surgeries or transfers, other hospitals in nobody knew their medical records were updated. I mean this was scale where hundreds of hospitals each of which has thousands of patients missing changes the medical records. We don't know what the effects of that work, but very well could've actually harmed people's health. Our lives I mean the scale of not petty is very difficult to. Get your mind around, but we do know that you know monetarily cost ten billion dollars, which is by far the biggest number we've ever seen, but it also had this this kind of harder to quantify toll on people's lives, so it it you know you read about it at length and wired. Obviously these companies go down of ripples in mainstream sort of general press, but I don't feel like people really not like Oh. This Russian group called San Worms sponsored by the Russian government. Unleash this attack in it caused this cascading effect of failure and disaster cost in that because we know what we can attribute it to the government, our government. I don't feel like that connection got made for people. What is the gap between other as a hack and Oh, this is actually a type of warfare engagement, because that that connection seems very tenuous. I think for a lot of people. Even as sort of the more general mainstream press covers this stuff. Yeah, you know. I don't think that that's is just like the nature of. Of Cyber War I think that was a failing that that lack of connection is a failing on our government's parts, and on you could say even on the part of some of these victims like these large companies I mean I at the time did not pitch it happened. I was fully on the trail of standard within days. I was talking to cyber security researchers who? Who had piece together? Some of the forensics to show the not petiot was Sandra that it was a Russian state-sponsored attack in yet none of those companies that I mentioned mercker Mondelez or Maersk or Fedex, or any of them wanted to say the Russia had done this to them and know governments were talking about either like the Ukrainian government was. They're always willing to point. Point the finger at Russia, but the US government was not, and you know that to me seemed to be just kind of I mean I felt like I was being gas. Let's at that point. I had watched Russia due to Ukraine for a long time at that point tonight. I sort of understood that NATO in the West. We had this kind of cruel logic that. Ukraine is not us. Russia can do what it likes to Ukraine because they're not NATO not e you. They are Russia's sphere of influence or something I think that that's very wrongheaded, but at least it made sense. You know to have that that viewpoints, but now this attack had spread from Ukraine to hit American soil American companies in many cases and yet still the US government was saying nothing I just thought this was bizarre and you know so i. For months I was like. Trying to get any of these companies to tell the story of of their experiences, not Peta I was trying to figure out why the US government wasn't talking about the fact that this was a Russian cyberattack and ultimately I. Think it was I. think it was kind of I know partly disorganization negligence. I think it may have something to do with the fact that the. The? Trump administration doesn't like talking about Russian hackers for obvious reasons, but eight months after it took eight months ultimately for the US government to finally say not that it was a was Russia it was the worst cyberattack in history, and then a month later. The White House impose consequences in put new sanctions on Russia and response, but it took nine months and more importantly it took. Multiple years this without was the first time this was twenty eighteen, and the Russian cyber war in Ukraine had started around the fall of Twenty fifteen, so that's just incredible span of negligence when the US government said nothing about these escalating unfolding. Acts, of Cyber Award that there should have been unacceptable from the very beginning I mean these are the kind of quintessential acts of state sponsored cyber attacks on civilians, trying out the lights. You know that's the kind of thing that I believe that the US government should have called out and drawn a red line across at the very beginning took ears, so I do think it was a big failing. Of of diplomacy, it just seemed like that part of the problem, and this is kind of an expression is it's so hard to describe like if the Russian government sent fighter jets to America and live their support. Okay, like everyone understood, you can see it. You can understand what happened there. In the you know, there's like a however many decades of movies about how to fight that war. This is a bunch of people in a room typing. Like it there's just an element of this where the dangerous Oh federal where the attack is invisible, and while the effects might be very very tangible, the causes are still sort of mysterious people so. My question is who is sandwich. What what do we know about them? Where do they work? What are they like? Do we have a sense of how this operation actually operates? In some ways the the biggest challenge of reporting this book, and I spent essentially the third act of the book, the last third of the reporting of the book, trying to answer the question of who is in worm, who are these people? Where are they located? What motivates them and I guess to partially spoil the ending here. They are a unit of the year you. They are a part of Russia's military intelligence agency, which is responsible for you know, this is not a coincidence. They are responsible for election meddling responsible for the attempted assassination of You. chemical weapons in the United Kingdom they're responsible for the downing of a seventeen as commercial passenger jet over Ukraine were three hundred innocent people died on the G. R.. You are this incredibly reckless callous out military intelligence agency, but they act like kind of almost just cut through mercenaries around the world. Doing Russia's bidding in ways that are very scary, so I threw essentially like a combination of excellent work of a bunch of security researchers who I was speaking to combined with some confirmation from US intelligence agencies, and then ultimately some other clues from the investigation of Robert Muller into meddling all these things combined created the trail that led to one group within the JERE. You that were you know I? Eventually had some names and faces even address of this this group, and all that was actually only finally fully confirms After the book came out Justin in recent months when the White House finally actually was the State Department's. End as well as the UK on Australian and other governments together finally said yes, sand worm is in fact that this unit of the year you so this theory that I developed in positive near the end of the book was finally basically confirmed by governments just in recent months. So one thing that strikes me at that is I, think of the Russian military things. Gru is being foreboding being obviously, they're very very good at this other a buttoned up in then they have like a incredible social media presence that kind of POPs up throughout the book that distracts from what doing. They set up Gucci for two point Oh when they were doing the DNC hacks that fed to wikileaks in the. That account insisted it was just guy. They set up the shadow brokers which was. I read. It is just like your some goof-balls like they wanted to seem a lot dumber and a lot smaller than they were. They were very effective at it to people I. Talk About those that strategy, and then I guess my question have is like a re better at seeing that strategy for what it is well. You make a really interesting point. The uses these false flags like throughout their recent history that we I should say we don't know that they were responsible for shadow brokers. In fact, nobody knows who shot a brokers. The shadow brokers truly are, and they are in some ways the biggest mystery in this whole story, this one group that hacked the NSA apparently and leaked a bunch of their zero day hacking techniques, or maybe they were even say insiders. We still don't know the answer to that question, but the other other incidents you mentioned. That are you are responsible for this Guja for two point zero fake hacktivists leaked a bunch of the Clinton documents. They're responsible for other false flags like they at one point to call themselves the Cyber Caliphate pretended to be Isis. They've a pretended to be like patriotic pro. Russian Ukrainians at some point they they're always like wearing different masks ends. They're very deceptive. in the a later chapter of the book, some of the biggest one of the biggest attacks they. They did was this attack on the twenty thousand Olympics where they not only wore a false mask, but they actually had layers of false flags where as cyber security researchers W. This melwert was used to destroy the entire back end of the two thousand eighteen winter Olympics. Just as the opening ceremony began, this was a catastrophic events. The aware had all of these fake clues made look like it was Chinese or North Korean or maybe Russian. Nobody could tell it was like. It was this kind of confusion bomb almost designed to to just make researchers throw up their hands. Give up on attributing mallards. Any particular actor was only through some amazing detective work by some of the analysts that I spoke to the able to cut through those false flags identify that sand was behind this essentially, but yeah, it's it is a one very real characteristic of the jury you that they are almost they seem to almost take pleasure or like be showing off their deception capabilities to and their evolving those capabilities they are getting more deceptive over time as fake gets more, destructive aggressive. Advertising content when I say Utopia what comes to mind? Birds Chirping lush natural beauty dialed up and vibrant technicolor. Is it within reach. Your world. World. explained. You are an essential part of the Pathak social body. Everybody in that place. Everybody happy now. While the peacock original series brave new world takes place in a scientific futuristic utopia. The concept is nothing new Sir Thomas more. I introduced the theory five hundred years ago, but we keep looking for that community identity stability of aldous. Huxley's Utopia and not finding it. Americans are the unhappiest they've been in decades and we're increasingly lonely. whereas in a utopia, everyone belongs to everyone else. In nineteen, forty-three, the psychologist Abraham Maslov developed a theory of Yoga. One that allows total self determination in basic terms. maslow's theory says that in a utopia we decide for ourselves what we need and how we're going to get it in Huxley's Utopia. Citizens always get what they want and don't want what they can't get. Sounds pretty good right then. Why can't we make it happen?

This is bowes I'm a podcast or By, I, a Gamer Five G. is changing the gaming world in really unexpected exciting ways with the help of Samsung Five G. I'm getting a peek at how gaming is getting faster smoother and can even improve our lives well. Let's dish some secrets about the future gaming. Dr Jean Mechanical Direct Route Game Research and development at the Institute of the future. She's also a bestselling author game inventor. She's optimistic about gaming impact on us and our minds. The biggest thing that we've seen in research is that. We need to be able to game in the moment wherever we are. So, what happens when when you're playing when your favorite games is that it fires up than her logical pathways, it's kind of like having a of caffeine and a pet dog from your favorite coach, and you've just meditated for an hour. This emotional neurological power up is called the game transfer effect, and that effect is heightened when using five. Five G. The game transfer fact requires you to be totally immersed in the game, so you want to have the most amazing graphics and the most immersive audio and with five G. to do that anywhere anytime, be one of the first to harness the game transfer effect with Samsung Galaxy Five G. now available on Galaxy, S Twenty-five g and a seventy one five G. feels good to be I with Samsung. I love to play the game of like. Imagine the meeting and imagine that the one set of meeting which is like the actual hackers finding the vulnerabilities figuring out how to jump from Windows, eight computer to some sort of physical hardware controller that actually runs like that. That's a very hard problem in and of itself, and then the other meeting. They're like what we're GONNA do is claim to be a guy called Gucci for two point, Oh and like those are. Not Connected Right, but the way they throughout the book the way they execute East campaigns they're deeply connected, and that seems like not only just a new kind of warfare, and you kind of craft, but some just consistently seems to work in surprising ways like the tech press is GonNa. Be Like Gucci. I says this and we're. There's never that next step of also we think it's Russian government, and that seems like first of all I'm dying. I imagine the meeting right. I would love to be a fly on the wall of the meeting where they decide what their twitter name is going to be today. I'm very curious how they evolve those attacks in such a way that it just seems to be more and more effective time. Yeah, I mean. I also love to have been those meetings in. It's my one kind of regret in this book that I never actually got. Interviews, it's almost an impossible thing to do. They liked find defectors from the R., you or something. He will tell those stories at a knock it murdered I mean. It's kind of a possible, but but. In some cases? I think your earlier points. They almost seem kind of bumbling in these things they do them in a very improvisational way. for two point Oh seemed almost like it was a justice thing they invented on the spot, tried to cover up some of the the accidental ups like they had left russian-language formatting errors in the documents that they had leaked from the DNC, so they admitted this guy who appeared the next day and started. Talking about being a Romanian. Friends as motherboard Lorenza, Franceschi decry he started this conversation. Align with with Guja for two point, oh basically proved at the guy could not actually properly speak Romanian. BE Russian speaker. In fact, it was. It was almost comical at the same time. They're using very sophisticated hacking techniques doing destructive attacks on a massive scale, but they're also. They seem like they're kind of making it up as they go along. They do things that don't actually seem very kind of strategically smart. They kind of seem like they're trying to impress their boss for the day. Sometimes with just like some sometimes, it's just seems like the Jere. You wakes up in asks themselves. Like what can we blow up today? Rather than thinking like? How can we accomplish the greater strategic objectives of the Russian Federation? So they are fascinating in that way and very stringent colorful group. That's I think one of the biggest questions I have here is. We spend a lot of time trying to imagine what flat and Mirror Putin wants. You know when he grows up, but it. None of this seems targeted like what is the goal for Russia to disrupt the Winter Olympics right like. Is there a purpose to that? Is that just a strike fear? Is it just to? EXPAND THAT SUV influenced. Is it just to say we have the capability furious is there? has there ever really been the stated goal for this kind of cyber warfare? That one is particularly mystifying. I mean you can imagine why Russia would want to attack the Olympics. They were banned from the two thousand Eighteen Olympics doping, but then you would think that they might want to attack the Olympics and send a message maybe like eight deniable message a message that you know if you continue to ban us. We're GONNA. Continue to attack you like like any terrorists would do, but instead they attacked the winter. Olympics in this way, that really seemed like they were trying not to get caught, and instead like make it look like the was Russia North Korea? And then you have to like what is the point of that was? The could kind of. Sit there in Moscow and kind of like rub their hands together in gleefully. Watch this chaos unfolds. It almost really does seem like it was petty vindictive thing that they just for their own emotional needs wanted to make sure that nobody could enjoy the Olympics if they were not going to enjoy them I that was, but that one is i. think outlier in some ways for the most part you can kind of see. The Russia is advancing. The G. R. You that sand worm is advancing something that does generally make sense which is that. In Ukraine for instance, they're trying to make Ukraine look like a failed state. They're trying to make Ukrainians. Lose faith in their security. Services are trying to prevent investors globally from funneling money into Ukraine trying to create a kind of frozen conflict, as we say in Ukraine where there's this constant perpetual state of degradation. They're not trying to conquer the country, but they're trying to create a kind of permanent war in Ukraine and would cyber war. You can do that beyond the traditional front end. It is in some ways the same kind of tactic that they used in other places like the US which. which here we saw more than influence operation that they were hacking leaking organizations like democratic campaign organizations and anti doping organizations to kind of so confusion to embarrass on their targets. They're trying to influence like the international audiences opinion these people, but in Ukraine, it is in some ways, just a different kind of influence operation where they're trying to influence the world's view of Ukraine. Influence Ukrainians view of their themselves under government to make them feel like they are in a war zone even when their kid hundreds of miles from the actual fighting. That's happening on the eastern fronts in the eastern region of. Of Ukraine so in a book you you you go to Kiev. You spent time in Ukraine. Is there a sense in that country that while sometimes light goes out sometimes our TV stations. Their computers don't boot anymore. Because they got rewritten, the Hydros got Zeros like. Is there a sense that this is happening? Is there a sense the defy back is there does Microsoft deploy you know dozens of engineers to to help fight back. How does that play out on the ground there? Yeah, I mean to be fair. Ukrainians are very stoic about these things and regular. Ukrainian citizens were not bothered by you know. Know a short blackout. They didn't particularly care you know. This blackout was the first ever. Hacker induced blackout in history but Ukrainian cyber security. People were very unnerved by this end, people in these actual utilities were traumatized I mean these attacks were truly like relentless sins very kind of scary for the actual operators at the controls I mean in the first blackout attack. These poor operators Ukrainian control room in western Ukraine they were locked out of their computers, and they had to watch their own mouse cursor. Click through circuit breakers, turning off the power in front of them I. Mean They watched it happen? At these kind of Phantom hands to control of their mouse movements, so they took this very very seriously, but yet Ukrainians as a whole I mean they have seen a lot. They are going through an actual physical war. They've seen the seizure of Crimea and the invasion of the east of the country. You know the the date hits. A Ukrainian general was assassinated with a car bomb in the middle of Kiev, so they have a lot of problems, and I'm not sure that cyber war is one of the top of their minds, but not patio I. Did, actually reach Ukrainians normal. Ukrainian civilians to it. It shook them as well. I talked to two regular Ukrainians. who found that they couldn't swipe into the Kiev Metro. They couldn't use their credit card at the grocery store. All the ATM's were down The Postal Service was taken out for every computer that the postal service had was taken out for more than a month. I mean these things really did affect people's lives, but it kind of. A until that kind of climactic worm. Not Patio for I think for this to really reach home for Ukrainians. who have kind of seen so much. How do you fight back? I, mean I one of things that struck me as I was reading. The book is so many of the people you talked to people who are identifying the threat. They're actually private companies. Eyesight was the first even detect it. they are contractors to intelligence agencies the military in some cases, but they're not necessarily the government right like it's not necessarily Microsoft. Who has to issue the patches from the software not necessarily GE which makes simplicity, which is the big industrial controls talk about a lot. How does all that come together into a defense because that seems like harder problem of coordination? Yeah, I mean defense in Cyber. Security is in an eternal problem. It's incredibly complicated, and when you have a really sophisticated determined adversary, it know they will win eventually ends I. think that they're absolutely lessons for defense in this book about you know. Maybe you need to really really think about software updates for instance like the kind that were hijacked to a with this medoc accounting software. As a vector for terrible cyber-attacks. Imagine that like. Any of your insecure apps that have kind of updates can be become a a piece of Malware, really unique to signature networks need to think about patching on. There are just an endless kind of checklist of things to every organization needs to do to protect themselves so. In some ways that just like a Sisyphean task and I don't. I don't try to answer that question in the book because it's too big, and it's kind of boring as well, but what I do really hammer on is the thing that the government's really could've done here. which is to try to establish norms tried to control attackers through diplomacy through kind of disciplinary action through things like kind of Geneva Convention for Cyber War if. If you think about a kind of analogy to say like chemical weapons, we could just try to give everyone in the world a gas mask that they have to carry around with them at all times, or we could create a Geneva. Convention norm that chemical weapons should not be used in if they are than crime, and you get pulled in front of the Hague. Hague and we've done the ladder and I think that in some ways should be part of the the answer to cyber war as well we need to establish norms and make countries like Russia or like organizations like the G. Are you understand that there will be consequences for these kinds of attacks, even when the victim is not the US or NATO or the? The EU and I think we're only just starting to think about that. One of the questions I had as reading is it seems like a very clear red line for almost everyone you talk to is attacks on the power grid right? That is just unacceptable. You should not do it if you do it. You've crossed a line and there should be some consequence. Is, that clear to governments. Is that something that our government says? It's something that the says it has been established. It seems like it's it's the conventional wisdom wants to salvage, but I'm not unclear whether that is actually the line that exists. It definitely has not been established, and when I kind of did these I managed to get sort of interviews with the top cyber security officials in the Obama ends trump administration Jay Michael Daniel was the cyber. Cyber Coordinator for the administration was the kind of cyber coordinator boss in the The Homeland Security Adviser for trump and both of them when I asked him about like wiped. Why didn't you know to put it bluntly like? Why didn't you respond? When Russia caused blackouts in Ukraine? Both of them essentially said well. You know that's not actually the rule that we want to set. We want to be able to cause blackouts in our adversaries networks. In their power grids when we are in a war situation or when we believe it's in our national interest, so you know that's the thing about these cyber war capabilities. This is part of the problem that every country. Absolutely the US among them isn't really interested in controlling these weapons, because we in this kind of Lord of the rings fashion, we are drawn to them to like we want to maintain the ability to use those weapons ourselves and nobody wants to throw this ring in the fires, of Mount Doom. We all wanted maintain the ring and imagine that we can use it for good in out. So that's why neither administration called that Russia for doing this because they want that power to. Make the comparison to to nuclear weapons but Negotiated drawdown and treaties with Russia in the past we count warheads where aware that the United States stockpiles can destroy the world. Fifty Times over today maybe tomorrow one hundred hundred like what we have a sense of the the measure of force that we can. Put on the world when it comes to nuclear weapons, there's a sense that Oh, we should never use these right like we have them as a deterrent, but we've gained out that actually leads to his mutually assured destruction like there's an entire body of academics. There's entire body of researchers. Entire body is got scenario planning with that kind of weapon. Does that same thing exist for for cyber weapons. There are absolutely. Know community is of academics. Policymakers who are thinking about this stuff now, but I don't think it's kind of gotten through to actual government decision. that. There needs to be kind of cyber deterrence in how that would work. In in the comparison to nuclear weapons is like instructive, but not exactly helpful. In fact, it's kind of counter-productive because we cannot deter cyber-attacks with other cyber-attacks i. don't think that's GonNa work in part because we haven't even tried to establish it yet. There are no kind of rules or read lines, but then I think more importantly. Everybody thinks that they can get away with cyberattacks that they can. They're going to create a false flag. That's clever enough that that when they blow up a power grid, they can blame their neighbor instead, so they think they're. They're gonNA. Get Away with it, and that causes them to do it anyway. A not fear the kind of assured destruction so I think that the the right response, the way to to deter cyber attacks is not with the promise of a cyber attack in return. It's with all the other kind of tools we have, and they've been used sometimes, but but they were not in the case of Sand Werman. Those tools include like sanctions which came far too late in the story indictments of hackers. In some cases, we still haven't really seen syndrome. Hackers indicted for the things that they did in Ukraine or or even not petty. And then ultimately just kind of messaging like calling out naming and shaming bad actors, and that has happened to some degree with Sandra, but in some cases there have still been massive failures there there has still been no public attribution of the Sandwich attack on the twenty eighteen Olympics I mean. My Book has been out for months. I think show pretty clear evidence that syndrome is responsible for this attack. The very least it was Russia and yet the US and Korean War, These Olympics took place at UK, none of these governments have named Russia as having done that. That attack which almost just invites them to do it again whenever our next Olympics are going to be, I guess maybe not this year, but if you don't send that message than you're just essentially inviting Russia to try again so I think might my big question is what happens now? I mean right we you write about. The NSA has tailored access operations, which is their elite hacking group. We are obviously interested in maintaining some of these capabilities. We've come to a place where people are writing books about how it works. What is the next step? What is the next? does it just keep getting worse or does this kind of diplomacy you're talking about? Is that beginning to happen I? Think there is some little glimmers of hope about the diplomacy beginning to happen I mean this year in February I think it was the State Department's called out a sand worm attack on Georgia, where a worms hackers basically took down a ton of Georgian websites by attacking the hosting providers as well as a couple of TV's broadcasters in the US. State Department with a few other governments not. said this was sand. Worm named the unit of the GRU. That's is that was confirmation that I've been looking for for a long time, but they also made a point of saying that we're calling this out is unacceptable, even though Georgia. Georgia is not part of NATO or the U. so that's that's progress. That's essentially creating a new kind of rule. That's state-sponsored. Hackers can't do certain things, no matter who the victims and that's really important. Also, it was kind of interesting because federal officials like gave me a heads up about that announcement before happened, which they have very very rarely do and I think they were trying. To say was in we. We read your book and we. Got The message okay like Stop attacking us about this like we're trying. We're doing something different here I. Don't want flatter myself that I actually changed their policy, but it did seem interesting that they wanted to tell me personally about this so i. I think that like maybe our stance on this kind of diplomacy is evolving, and we're learning lessons, but at the same time we also see the attacks evolving to. To and their new innovations in these kinds of disruption happening, we've seen since some of these terrible Sandra attacks. You know other very scary things like this piece of our called Triton or crisis that was used to disabled safety systems in a oil refinery in Saudi Arabia on that was you know that could have caused an actual physical explosion of petrochemical facility? The the attacks are evolving to okay final last real question. Tell people where they can get your book. You can find all kinds of places by on indie Greenberg Dot net. Written another book as well previously, yes. That's right. I wrote a book about wikileaks. Cypher punks and things like that. That's right well. I'm a huge fan. It was an honor to talk to you. Thank you so much for coming on I know it's. It's a weird time to be talking about anything, but the coronavirus I was very happy to talk about something else, which is that it seems a little bit more in control Even if it is quite dangerous, a thank you for the time. I appreciate it. Yeah, I'm glad to provide people with a different kind of apocalypse as a distraction.
Show Notes Tips from Tech-Minded Podcasters
"First thing, the big news for those of us in the podcast industry in a lot of podcasters out there is podcasts movement. In Dallas, has been canceled surprise surprise. It's kind of been the theme all this year. You know all these big events getting canceled or push back and then canceled and that's what happened here. They pushed it from August to October and then decided to go virtual. So, they're going to be going virtual. If you applied to speak at podcast movement by the way you're going to have to reapply if you WANNA speak virtually at the virtual event. That's I believe October nineteenth yeah, Eighteen, th through the twenty nineth, so they're going to kind of spread it out over ten days, so at shouldn't a burden, too many people with having to take a lot of time off from work. That'll be good. Yeah I was surprised when I saw how long the virtual event is going to go for, but I do think that's good, because most of us including me. I don't really WANNA. Sit on a you know virtual video conference type thing for you know more than. Probably a few hours a day, so spreading it out will make it easier. I think for most people oh. Yeah for sure, and you know I kind of saw this coming of if you notice all of the little, meet upset. podcast movements been having online every time they do it. They use a different technology. So I think they were just testing out the technology to figure out what they want to do for the the virtual full events so. It'll be interesting to see how it all works out I. Hope I hope it goes well. I know podcast is doing one in August. that's all virtual online, so we'll see how these big conferences work in the virtual world. It really is kind of a brave new world for all of US years. We try to figure out. How to do all these things in the wake of a pandemic, it's It's all new stuff. Oh Yeah I. Think L. for the most part. We're getting through it and getting. Getting. Things done that have to be done. You know that are not related directly to the pandemic or all that so. I think I. Think it's good that it's online this year. I, you know I really hope that things get back to where we can get back in person because I haven't traveled since October which is amazing for me usually. I'm on the road. So Anyway Twenty twenty one. They've already scheduled the podcast movement twenty twenty, one for Nashville Tennessee so. That'll be a new venue for them. Usually they're in bigger cities and guess. Nashville is pretty big, but I. don't know I guess I wouldn't mind checking out Nashville. Yeah. It's an interesting location. I. I know, didn't There was another you know media convention was it's The religious broadcasters association I think that Yeah usually habits meetings in Tennessee. Yeah, and RB National Religious Broadcasters. They usually have there's in Tennessee. They had it out in Anaheim one year. But for the most part it's at the same venue. In Nashville, so I know Mackenzie Angelo and todd have all been to that venue for that show, so they'll be familiar with it. Yeah Yeah it's It's an interesting choice. I like that you know podcast movement has. Tried through its history different locations I. think it's good for everybody because you know, it's a travel under abnormal conditions you know is different for everybody. Some people can afford to go farther and if you have it in a different location. If, people want to drive in. They can or whatever the case is, so it's nice that they've. They've tried to have it in different places over the years. Oh, yeah, when they hit Chicago a I drove. Most of the way in took Amtrak in so that was Kinda cool. Nashville kind of on the outside of my one day drive. Limit so we'll see. You know. Who knows. If, I drive it or fly it or Maybe, I'll find a train that goes that way. I don't know we'll see but I kind of look forward to that Rate. Stood, we have here in the news folder. According to macrumors and many many other sources spotify is introducing their video podcasts for more shows. And I know James Crillon over at Pod News. Dot Net was asking them. You know how. How is that GONNA work is to be are astronaut. turns out that no some sort of proprietary. Thing, so basically you have to upload the video right at spotify, and it only goes to spotify, so it's not like a full video podcast, and if you have a video podcast, that is a full normal, RSS, based video podcast still won't work on spotify.

"braves" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"It's hard to say but in the way that players all kind of collectively decided that they did not like PD use and they didn't WanNa feel pressured to use PD's and then the players Association essentially supported testing and discipline. There I wonder whether the same would have or could happen with science daily. Yeah I think that there's probably not I think What am I say. I think that Manfred has not wrong. That he probably got more candid information as a result of promising that they wouldn't be suspended provided they were truthful and again they might have been truthful in some instances and sort of omit things and others. But I I think the main goal was to shut this down and be done with it and he should have probably known that that wasn't going to happen. And so if it gets dragged out in a grievance who cares and you know the the Union League part of a union job is to defend their members in the case of sanctioned by an employer. I think that the player pool is probably sophisticated enough to understand that simply fulfilling that obligation does not necessarily mean that you are taking the side of members who cheated at the expense of other members over those members who suffer consequences results the cheating so I think that the players probably could have figured that all out and I hope that they are able to even if they are internally divided in there is consternation amongst them as a result of this able to sort of understand the broader need for cohesion solidarity going into a CPA negotiation. But we had a lot of time before that happened so I have a feeling that they're going to be able to sort themselves out on that score the yet S- he could've decided to suspend the players who were still ass. Strauss just called it a day. I'm sure that I would have cleared a write up. We would be talking about it any it. Just be over right. I mean Manford has mishandled this but I don't know that another commissioner would have done much better it's it's just a situation where I think almost inevitably the way it came to light now if they had very proactively when these rumors started spreading and twenty seventeen twenty eighteen come out and made it public then then maybe and he was asked about that during the press conference and he said you know there were sort of informal protests or teams coming to MLB and saying we know they are signs and he said well it was difficult to prove that it was difficult to support it and he essentially said that without the reporting and without Mike Fires coming forward. This would not be happening even now so I don't know to what extent they deserve to be. Let off the hook for that. I think a large part of it is that they did just sorta sleep on this for years as happened with the PD story. So Manfred is under contract for like four more years and he's just entering a CPA negotiation. And I think that is the owners priority and he works for the owners. And yes maybe this spiraling out of control a little bit and it's been bad for baseball and if that finally does end the ever climbing trend line with revenue than. That's pretty much. The only thing fit. I think could actually get him on the wobbly chair for now I think owners are happy as long as he gets them a good deal and money. Yeah I do think that you know we. The line has been drawn. These guys are not that the players. You're not going to face punishment barring him where I guess learning that they have lied rate. He sort of alluded to that in his press conference that their immunity was predicated on them being truthful so I guess who were to learn that the potential punishment will be back on the table. I'd using that if we were to ever get to that point. It's probably pretty important to make sure that the remaining members of the Astros for an office who built the bill code breaker suffer some consequences. It remains very strange that those folks are still part of the organization. I just saw tweet about that. And Click said that those employees are still employed and he said that the organization will have a zero tolerance policy moving forward which fence sort of like win. Jeff Lino said that the zero tolerance policy for domestic violence immediately after trading for Roberto assume it's like zero tolerance unless it happened just before we said we had this policy which is just not really zero. It seems like a non zero level of tolerance. Anyway goodness I can't wait. I can't wait to see what new things we know this time next week. Yeah if this happens in the future if there's ever a future science doing scandal I don't think the players would get off scot-free like us because a you can't argue that they didn't know that it was wrong because this is the biggest story baseball and be it wouldn't be as important probably to have the details. Come to light. 'cause we know what the science doing scandal was so if there's another one well it's just more science doing and I think they would probably be punished. Pretty harshly if it happened again. Yeah and in addition to being a civil discourse guy we have also learned. That Rob Manfred is a precedent guy. He's just a bunch of different kinds of guys. He's a multifaceted individual one of the things. That's coming out of this is darvish is tweets which we are not worthy. Make him or he is the best responded to a tweet of a picture of the Astros World Series Trophy facing gorgeous trash cans. I like it He's just the best is the best. Make him commissioner. Let's go anyway. We don't have to start every episode with half an hour signs doing scandal banter. But how can we not? I guess as long as there are new developments. And they're just always are you development so I will say there's maybe one way in which this could have been even worse for baseball which is if the Astor's had won the twenty thousand nine world series which you'll recall. They came quite close to doing so baseball. Howie Kendrick and that foul pole big time because if the astros were the reigning world series champions as all this were breaking and not to. Mri of the last three world series was called into question. I think the level of anchor would be even greater even if it couldn't be established that they cheated and twenty nineteen. Lotta people would believe and do believe that they did and even if they won that one clean just to see those players Prophet and celebrate and have a parade so we knew that was a clutch homer. But in retrospect even closer than we knew at the time saved goes for the AL MVP. Vote which Alex Bregman was pretty close to winning. That wouldn't have gone over well when these revelations surfaced either so as unlikely as it possibly could have been worse that said. I'm sorry that we are not talking about Shohei. Ohtani getting his driver's license because that happened for the first time. And that's a wholesome story and when I find inspiring yeah still has not obtained his driver's license. Maybe I should follow in show his footsteps. Yeah he said that he hasn't gone on the highway yet. So He's you know we probably haven't heard the last of it so maybe his first time braving a freeway traffic in greater Los Angeles area will come after. The science dealing south has resolved itself. And then we can revisit. It drove on any two way streets Ben Skillet us all right only other thing. We should probably mention is that there was a raise for minor league players salaries announced just because we track developments in the story. This is not a huge one. Frankly it doesn't go into effect until twenty twenty one and the pay raises are still to pretty low levels so like class a players. Their minimum pay is going from two hundred ninety dollars a week to five hundred dollars a week. So you figure that's you know what two thousand a month and players are playing for five months years that they're being paid for so that's ten thousand dollars right there and that is not really a year's salary so it's Improvements I guess but it's one of those improvements that kind of makes you think even more. Why not just go all the way just to do this in a satisfactory fashion instead of bit by bit? Yeah that was the other part of His press conference that we didn't talk about but he was asked about the minor league. Contraction of the Commissioner was should say yeah the Perez stuff is probably why my reaction to him affecting a Fussy tone about the conditions that players find themselves playing in really rang hollow really rang hollow. Rob I understand that. Complicating our understanding of the minor league owners who are not exactly. You know famously. Generous to minor leaguers themselves is useful. Because it's sort of weird to paint them as champions of Minor League baseball players. Yes it's good to have a nuanced inaccurate conversation about these sorts of things but also sir he was also asked a couple of times about the Tomahawk Chop and essentially said that he's been too busy with the science doing scandal to talk to the braves about it so he kind of punted on.
"braves" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Still waiting to get with the Braves go against defenses where he can he can take care of the weak link of the opposing defense and really find ways to exploit it to do things that you know they don't want that player doing whether it's matched up against a slot receiver or tight end or whatever he's able to manipulate the defense with his now groupings switches formations with insurance and motion and he knows the defense is exceptionally well so he knows what the assignments are for the other team can sometimes work comes to the bike to forty matters of the blood is when there's a blown assignment on the other side and they're not doing what they're supposed to be doing and the guys in a position he's not supposed to be and sometimes that works against the forty Niners because it was Kyle knows so well what the other team is is trying to do how their scheme and at a in in the personnel on that team so yeah there's no doubt that he is the is a sharp football mind I don't think he always attended his classes at Duke gore you to your senses yeah yeah but what what he lacks in the classroom as far as the motivation for he makes up for with just this incredible encyclopedia knowledge of the game of football you got it you got to love the subject matter right to want to soak it up like that now clearly he does I think yeah I'm such an engine in the game today Matt maiocco with us for a few more minutes on the on the gas line earlier today great Purcell was always moving back early this morning we may replace some of that a little bit later today this afternoon or this evening so he was on earlier and he was talking about establishing the running he said forty Niners don't really need to do that early in the game because eventually they've already established in coming into this Superbowl do you share that sentiment is that something you think is is real in in the minds of the Kansas City Chiefs coming into this one yes it is that I've heard great say that and and I I've stolen it because it's his draft will be true yeah you know it it's I mean I had to put it in thought of it in those terms Intel I heard him say it but it absolutely is true because what what you're trying to do is you're trying to make the other team respect your running game if you're trying to make them make adjustments to your not yield these whatever can play fifty four yard drives it takes you know eight minutes off the clock or whatever the case may be so they've already kind of shown one in the recent gains in the Vikings and the Packers gates they've already shown what their offense of mindset is and what they're capable of doing against run defenses that are probably right around what the what the chiefs are so the chiefs have to go into this thinking okay the the fortieth if nothing else I think the chiefs want to speed up the forty Niners well it's almost like a you know a fast break offense of team you don't want to get into a half court game it's so he can speed up the forty Niners by trying to stack the box trying to take away their run maybe even over committing to the run then then I think the the the chief see some advantages in that in in the advantages are that your you you're not allowing the forty eight hours to hold the ball as long as they would like to which means Patrick Mahoney isn't on the sideline as long as it's also giving the ball back to the home or in in what in your taken but the gamble there might be a might give up some big plays might might give up some points but they're they're also be you know a three and out scattered in there with with you'll run play that stopped in two incomplete passes so I think that that's a pretty good mindset for the chiefs to have knowing that they have such great offense of fire power yet they would probably take that risk of it let's if this thing gets into a shoot out we're fine with that because we have patched models are side yeah it almost feels like to me that that because we see the forty hours compete in a shoot out if the chiefs were to win I feel like it would be a closer game feels to me like if the forty Niners when it would be sort of a grind you into a paste run the ball deflate the game run that clock town sort of victory I I I that's just my feeling on it you sure any that are what are your thoughts on that well I just don't know that you can ever count out the cheeks and your you which we saw but I mean twenty four nothing against the Titans in the first quarter you dont think and well you know what this is yeah first the ravens are out and now the cheese and then and then what happens is I mean if you just look at the final score you allow one on one well I mean I think was never close so it even feel this game the the forty years had against the the Packers you know it it never really was in doubt it you after they get out that twenty seven out the lead at halftime but there was a point there you know in the third quarter and maybe again in the fourth quarter where there are some critical moments for the forty Niners were kind of switching on the in the the Packers kind of the combination of the Packers opening things up in the forty Niners playing a different kind of style of defense and that's really it you know that that's the kind of game that the chiefs play in the play from the beginning so I think the one lesson that the calcium Hannah's talked about this week yeah that he learned from that that Superbowl Las Vegas the patriots is that the games never over you can never stop executing you can never just mail when you know some plays and just run the ball what gave you can try to just work the clock I mean you can you can do that but you have to have a purpose by you have to you have to pick up first they'll do matter what your leaders you have to be able to control the ball you have to pick up third downs you have to be able to complete those third down passes the keep the change moving so from that stance yeah I know some there's some people are out there I think Donte Whitner said that he kind of expect the four years to win a blow out I just don't know that it's possible to blow out the cheese because of their firepower yeah he I heard him say that too I just a it's just what the what the game is conducive to house and it always takes was given to a man they go NBC sports bay

"You know, I know they're out of first place. I know that's a bummer, and it's aggravating and it was comfortable as a Phillies fan. Did know that the Phillies were in first place as they were for, for two months. They're all out of it. They start a series of the Braves tomorrow. One game back. We'll see where this one goes, I will say this despite losing first place last night. And despite losing some traction over the last week. I'm actually more encouraged not less encouraged by the fills in this last week because I think with effluent Pavetti I think there finally on the right road. Here was something. I mean we we've been we've been talking about how after Nola and even Nola hasn't been Nola. But after Nola, assuming that he settles down to a large extent he already had then you have great on known. We feel like you could you could put all the names in a hat and just pick out, and they just got could be too, and this guy, same guy has got it could be too could be five got it could be five could be too, and that's not good. That's not a good way to have a baseball pitching staff. And I actually feel again, even though they, they lost out on first place last night. And over the last week that has occurred in that they slipped games. They eventually were tied are in a one game hall. I'm telling you what pathetic and effluent, I'm starting to actually have hope that they are finding a staff, that you can feel like okay. I think I think. This is an again guys they need help on the back end of it. Don't get me wrong. They have no five and area is an all over the place for. But with effluent prevent, I'm starting to feel I mean, everyone was fantastic last night, and Pavetti stuff has been electrically. So two games. Yeah. Look, it may be counterintuitive, and it may not go with oil out of people feel, and of course, you can hit us up and let us know at eight, seven to nine ninety four nine of orders. I'm sure there's a lot of people that don't feel the way I feel that just feel Jodi talking about dealers loss, first place, you're, you're saying, you know how can you feel good. But say what man effluent showed something last night in any and has been shown something much of the year. And pa- Venta since coming back from the minors has been. Pretty fantastic action. Eight seven to nine ninety nine am I nuts there? You're saying all along that everything was fine because the Phillies weren't I, I did say that they're not your Karan. They're about to play the team who is this is this is an awesome. Watch is on the next these next few games. With the Braves. I. I've been saying that I love the way this team is looking, I think this team equates to the oh, seven Phillies team where there was a major jump, but they weren't quite ready yet. So I mean that begs the question you feel good about three starters. So do I, I do believe that pa- Vada Dino just because it's short lived this, this stuff that he's showing up. It was there. We, it was there in spring training. And then it's like a head thing where he lost. It was sent down. He dealt with that mature Lii. And e was coached up and now that he's back up. I think you know, jeez, this coaching staff is telling him. Hey, listen to JT whatever. JT. Throws you just like they did with Vince, they said, hey, Vince, when you get back up there, you get another chance to start like just take what JT. Signals you and don't think about it just throw like I think it's very possible that Nick pathetic can be the guy that we've seen the last two games. It's just taking him a while to get that's that's shown with lashes. I feel like I'm hanging my hat on right now. Sure. But for you to. So you're saying you're not worried that we've slipped now. I mean we've slipped out of first place. I don't think that that's like circumstantial. I think the Braves are a better team. I think the Braves have more depth. I think the Braves have a better farm system. I think this is going. This is more than just like, hey. Let's slap some fixes on this Phillies team. And they contend for a world title this year, like this is a step in the process. This is two thousand seven Phillies. Next year can be two thousand eight Phillies, but the changes that need to be made are drastic enough in that you need the, the bullpen help you need the outfield. Help you need. At least another starting pitcher all bench help for maybe two and then you need more bench players for sure. Is it are you finally ready to concede that this may not be the year that they win at all? Well, I don't know if they're gonna win it all I'm not ready to concede at all. You were saying, like, hey, let's, let's go. Let's go do whatever it takes to bring in what we need to bring in. I'm still in this team is in a World Series champion. Well, there's plenty of reasons there's ten teams to make the playoffs. So the odds are tough. There's no reason as teams shouldn't still shoot for the World Series. There's no reason Clinton shouldn't make moves to help his team this year. It gets shaped even if your last week, and we'll come felt even if you're giving away the future for this for this season diminish, if you should too many holes in this team to somehow like way magic wand, and some money and some players from the farm system to make it the team that completes for the whole shebang your phone right in my trap here wasn't even intentional Trump. Just my point is with eflin and pathetic. I think that Phillies actually are showing signs of having a top three I think their separation final at a top three isn't isn't going to cut it gives them something, man. I mean, we'll see I don't expect a fifth started phenomenal. I want to not be horrendous this year. The Phillies fifth has been horrendous but I didn't even know who the second starter wasn't till like a week ago, I didn't know there was no second starter. They just put another guy out. Another guy another guy and another guy and then they all kind of get banged around, and they were all in occasional flash of a good game and they get banged around again. I think that have separated them. So I think, yes, I think they have very encouraged believe it's sustainable. Aaron Nola will continue to battle, and he will continue to figure this thing out that you still have a major issue here that Jake Arrieta getting twenty five million bucks in twenty million next year. I to be the fourth pitcher. And then you've got no v can they Carlos Santana him. Can they trade him for an all star? Let's go to the phone likely. Eight seven to nine ninety four ninety four but I am curious in light of the, the reality, the Phillies have lost first place and they have dropped games in recent days. But I feel this odd dichotomy because at the same time I actually feel more encouraged in less because they got some pictures in the starting rotation finally showing something, let's go to the phones. That's talk to John and coach. So we'll talk about that talk about the birds. What's up, Johnny? Hey, thanks for taking my call. You bet. Thanks for calling John, no problem. You guys like I said, yesterday, guys are the best show on the way deal today. Thank you. Thank you. We hope you call every day with those kind words to start. You Joe after I say, what I need to wake fall. Oh, no, no. What he got, John? Well about Nick foles now. Don't get me wrong huge fan of neck. Exacts Seville along the guy forty days, but we need to move on. When we start him three years ago, two three years ago, we didn't know what we will get. We didn't we'll go get the Super Bowl MVP, of course. So it's kind of like made suck filled. We don't know if he's going to be good over. He's going to be a bump. On, on his day, just like we had known was Nick, God forbid, of course, it goes down this year, hopefully don't write. But once, but I will say this, John once foles had done, what he did did did what he'd done, or whatever I'm trying to say two years ago then you knew last year. You you lease at a really good backup. You knew that last year for sure, and he showed it again. That's where Sud fell like sure I mean. Yeah, it needs slept filled could turn into Kurt Warner. He probably won't you know, I mean you know, it's we've, we've seen enough backup quarterbacks to know he's probably not going to be Kurt Warner, and he's probably not gonna win a Super Bowl MVP the way Nick foles. Yeah. Dawn is just like the unknowns. Always there. Yeah. The, the, the future is always on. All right. John. What are you got here? I'm hoping on that the answer for who or what you need a break from. Well, I think it's time we have Johnny James show. Jogi com. It's harsh, John, it's a harsh. Feel it's coming at you. I think I don't bleed. You think I'm like an animal an animal, but we're all animals and in a certain sense. It's gotta Cordell in west Philly credential, hope you're more kind of spirits to me than that. Caller cordell. I'm doing pretty good. I'm sorry about that last caller for you. What's up? What's up, John? What's up with sound like he veil on the Phillies man? No, I'm not. I think we have to continue to build towards something. Great. It's just you know this year. This year is is really good. It's just not going to be the year that the Joe seems to think. Okay. So, but so my question to you is should we not still put a team out there? That's actually going to be able to compete for an opportunity to be world chance. We should. But I don't think that means leveraging the players in our farm system for the leveraging the future for this season would be foolish. Because the season we're just not going to be able to have enough. Well, I mean, you just talked about how you thought that the Atlanta Braves better farm system and everything like that sounds like you know, the way you think and is like our farm system sucks. So I mean what kind of young talent do we have that we actually? Well, well, it's considered about middle of the road. Yeah. Listen. John's point is he doesn't want to see them deplete it the way they were less or earlier this decade after all the moves. They made late last decade started this ticket Colonel. Give me who are what you need a break from, you got a chance to win pizza. Delfi tickets I need a break from running around trying to find a work every day..

"Them through because we really need you strong and healthy and September and October. If this is this is. Essentially away that, that free agents operating, perhaps. And I know. And you know Boris will spin this really positively for his client. So maybe there's another side to it, which is just keep an eye on whether this is something that occurs again from the brace respective love it. I, I agree with you. The money's fine. They need a guy like that, or they love to have him. They get them. I think it's a win win for the Atlanta Braves. And a makes that that division. And those two teams made these moves the Braves and cubs. Stand out to me along with the dodgers. Yeah. And we'll get to Dallas Kohl's, you know, the handling of this from Scott Boris in a moment. But I, I you know, during the course wintertime, Alex, and topless general manager of the Braves got a lot of criticism because the Phillies were loading up the Mets been lot to load up. The, the national spin on Patrick Corbin. And I remember I in spring training talking with FREDDY Freeman about the decisions that the Braves front office made he goes, look, I. I love the fact that we kept all of our pitching. No other team has more young pitching and the brave society. You know what we're going to keep that I mean issue and we've all these guys. But we don't know exactly who's going to turn out. We're going to give them ninety develop. They signed Josh Donaldson on a one year deal. They now have Kyko on a one year deal, and they still have all those prospects and they move forward and clearly at some point to probably going to try to upgrade their bullpen before the trade deadline. I think they're gonna wind up to this is all going to turn out very well for them because he wasn't too aggressive and didn't overreact and trade to pitching prospects to get a, a veteran starter. I like that from from their perspective. I agree with you quarrel about the Braves in the National League east. Look, I picked them to go to the World Series before the year started. I feel better about that pick. Now, I would agree. I look, I think what Alex did and the Braves of done and maybe other teams will do so who don't who don't sign Bryce Harper. Who don't make that big. Deal for the veterans starter and give up two thirds of their great pitching farm system, pieces is they used the first three months of the regular season to see where they were going to be at. And if they were improving but not nearly in the race in the east. They don't make this decision to sign Kyko. They have seen the I you know, April, may and June begin to play out and say, we, we always good as those teams we can compete now we fortify. And that's where Dallas Kyko comes in. We, we are fortifying they allow themselves not to commit thirteen million dollars or whatever the exact figure turns out to be until they knew what they were. And as you said, you know, saroka and freed Fulton. Avid, hasn't really been great yet. You, you add to that mix. You assume Fulton Avis comes back. They're really good. And you're right. Not now they're in a position like the Phillies like the cubs too. I thought had to do something because they are in that, that win now window. That they had to do something. That's why to your point, I think Alex play this beautifully. Let's let the kids show us what they got. You know, we've told FREDDY Freeman we're going to be good in two or three years. Well, that got that clock got accelerated. Let's talk about this situation from Keiko's perspective is a pitcher. You mentioned Brian McCann. He goes to the National League east with the offenses aren't going to be as strong so you love it from that perspective..

"Carl I love this deal from the Braves perspective. If you look at their rotation Mike saroka Julio Tehran max, freed combined sixteen eight with a two point. Eight nine year. A all other Braves starters, twenty eight starts a six point five, two era, a I love them, basically spending cash, not having give prospects in order to potentially of grade the rotation. Give them a little bit more experience. What do you think? Yeah. I think that little bit more experience as a real big part of this. I know as you know, there are other teams trying to get cold if you look around at the recent World Series winners. Many of them had good young pitching, but they also had that veteran, I think about the Phillies with area. I think that Keiko conserved that role with the Braves team that has great young pitching. He knows McCann. He can talk about the World Series. He can talk about pitching at Yankee Stadium as it comes down to something like that I think is just tremendous value in him. They have power arms. He's obviously a contact guy. I think he's gonna be motivated. Look, he, he was in a position to end up going. To a team that was going to compete for a playoff spot and were World Series title. So the suitors were exactly if you're in this position, which is not a comfortable position to be in. I know I've read your stuff. He sacrificed money from the beginning by not accepting the deal that the Astros had originally, put on the table, but he finds himself now for us into a playoff race on a great team with people, he knows as a leader, which are probably some of the boxes, he wanted to check by signing with whatever team he would he's accomplished that he's gonna miss half the season but I I'm interested to see if and we had this conversation with guys like Clemens before even David Ortiz when he was pondering retirement. Why not why not join a club in July and, and help carry.

"That was an unbelievable trade, you know, at the time Blair's kind of didn't didn't pan out so to speak. But you know, it always amazed me injure into Arteta was kinda thought of as a throw in in that trade. You know, look good. He's been for the Braves. But yeah days be Swanson's centerpiece. You know, and I mean, he's a little bit of a Latin rod of for brace fans. I think a lot of a lot of people love him recognized what he brings. But he was hot immensely during that rebuild. And you know, he hasn't hasn't come around to the plate away a lot of people who spaded, but you know, I I really felt like his defense last year of the Braves is a hold their defenses improvement was one of the biggest reasons, they they they got ninety wins in my opinion. If you compare them, you're. Over year. I mean, it was unbelievable. And a lot of that started with Swanson who you know, was a little bit was probably below average in two thousand seventeen but was really really good defensively last season. And I just feel like he's a winner. He he's got that that it's that feeling about him that I just feel like he's a winner. He's a good teammate. He meshes. Well, you know, you had light seem hit more. I'd like to see him hit more consistently. But I also think he might have been a little more banged up than a lot of people thought new lashed to. So I think that risk motto bothered him a ended up into missing the postseason and had off season surgery. And I think that might have been something that he dealt with a little more than what we what we knew. But I'm a big Swanson fan. I know a lot of people. I don't know if we need to Mitch and Johann Camargo here at shortstop A now that he's been displaced a little bit at third. I think we'll see a little bit of Camargo shortstop too. But i'm. Still a big believer in dance Swanson. So here's the thing with Dan's be dancing reminds me a lot of how Dustin Pedroia was but pre injury, basically, he's very physical defensively. And that's such a weird thing for people to hear. But it's true. When you have a guy who's out there diving for balls trying his best defensively, it's very hard for somebody to hit while while you have the rare people like patrol who could do it, Dan..

Those games against the east and September at the end of the last series I think they're, they're good enough to win the. Division and right now I think they're they're tied for the top wildcard right now and a half game ahead of the, teams that are behind them so they could get an either or But they gotta start winning games against.

Him on the wrist if he had a throw to end up on the air out of the plate and throw that the real sea might have had a chance to get, out of the way but he hit. Him on air boat he threw almost behind him in his hard to do it. Which way to go he's got his L. His elbow was behind him The elbow with in the middle of of his body that's not running him. Off the plate to. Me that's just my opinion he. Wasn't hit on the wrist he was hitting on the elbow is in the. Middle part of his body When he was Played ball, in a while, but my, hands my, arm my, elbow my wrist everything is out in front of my body when I'm getting ready to hit the ball When you, when you call back if you got. A through a hit him on the wrist he, could blame him for not moving but if you hear, them on the, elbow that's, when I, caught my. Back back anything may elbow goes further out over the plate not back toward my body What are you, trying to get out of the way. When he hit him on the air boat the, ball was coming to fair The run him off, the play I think he would. Have been able to at least get off the plane a little bit what. What he draw back. Hit, him on the air boat and that. Was, coming to me more at the bay part of his, body then. The front part yeah we apparently we. Saw it differently Melvin yeah and I'm.

You're bad I'm trying to remember exactly what kind of stance used in his arms were they were, out in front of his body They weren't behind his body said look like he was almost storm behind him so his elbow is somehow behind him I can't even, begin to think how you would attempt to swing now you're trying to. Get, out of the way I. Get that but you would pull your arms back and catch it on the elbow, no the patriots throwing at them there's no question. That he was attempting to come, inside and if he ate him he was. Going to have no problem with them He, did keep down below the. Shoulders for me which is. The one prerequisite you can't. Talk but anybody's head and he. Did that I thought that major league baseball when a little light, on that suspension I thought it should. Have, been at least ten games I thought sex was a, little bit light. And if he had stuck. His buys guns and. Said oh well no I wasn't attempting hit, him I just was coming inside I didn't control, the pitch he could have avoided this suspension but when he threw. His glove on? The, ground, and, basically said, let's, go and he wanted a fight well now you got pretense as do what you. Were doing what the patch so he deserved a suspension you got it.
