Facebooks Australian News Blackout
"We're gonna stop me on the side of the world We've news or rather the lack of news on facebook in australia uses. There can no longer cheryl read news articles from australian or international publishers in a row over proposed legislation from the australian government. Alex hold my hand here. What is going on in two thousand eighteen. The australian government regulator lotion inquiry into impact. Face what we're having on competition particularly around advertising and they found that there was imbalance of power between tech firms and the media and they recommended a code of conduct. That was very long complicated. But essentially it meant that they were gonna get share advertising revenue. Or there's going to be some sort of deal struck between those platforms. Giggle went okay and started making deals news. Koa is probably the biggest one and facebook is just pulled all of the australian new sites off its platform as a sort of nuclear option and basically said well. We've done what you asked. What do you want to do now. And it's almost felt like an empty threat when threatened to do it last year. Now it's real ever all they really did mean and that's a surprise you know. Isn't it clearly just abandoning the best. I think the most interesting thing. It's the perfect storm with australia. Because there are big enough country that that it's significant around the world. Everyone's watching to see what comes out of this. But the people in the world understands what precisely and but they're still not in the top twenty countries a facebook users so business of apps article said that australia's population twenty four male. So even if everybody in australia was facebook using adult they would still only reached nineteenth place of most popular facebook countries regardless of the politics. Heavy steve it just isn't good. Pr for facebook is it. And then i must have made the decision that it doesn't matter that is bad. Pr but i mean for one thing but extensively refusing to pay nominal tax you know despite being one of the world's biggest companies and for another thing when the middle of pandemic and that turning off news to an aging demographic who using service. You might want to know where they vaccines are at. I think when the period of time where the hall of this kind of disinformation machinery during the presidential election the criticism of getting rather just pull out completely out of australia doesn't send a good message to uses. All united see news. App is trying to get factually promptly check journalists and now it just smacks The valley it signed by. Maybe perhaps google is by by playing ball a little bit more with the content providers. I think in this convenient this information east of you want facebook to be really kind of suppose could quality journalism given alex is essentially while we're different to google search engines because publishes willingly upload their content to us and so they volunteering the information to us and why should we pay them to provide them with the platform. But it's not really true. I mean don't you have to basically have your content on facebook. I three years ago. You definitely did. i think. Now it's a case of across all publishers. Most of publishers facebook traffic will come from users sharing their stories to their own pages so they won't come from the brand themselves and so the bruns choices to publish that story. But it's not to publish on facebook necessarily. It's the question of whether or not then. Publishers have benefited by having face because platform so so particularly in all the users all the users go to facebook and then they click through for news rather than going to a new site for news which is something that the entire news industry is desperately trying to change. Probably new york times to the front of that bbc and the daily mail been leading on that for a while so the question is should facebook pay when people prefer platform to a news homepage. And that's difficult. All depends on whether or not publishers need. Facebook more than facebook. Needs publishes and i do not know the answer to that question also opposed goes to the heart of the origins of the open web. Doesn't it steve. Because the whole point of the way that the world wide web was built walls you can always linked to something for free. You can refer someone to something for free. That's not the same as publishing. That's how wikipedia works that's how other sites that are the facts about this work. Some applies in the state. Okay off the bolted. But i think we'll be interested to find out if that kind of sliding mole Content makers these big platforms whether that does really benefit that does is it going to increase the goss. Subscriptions by being late to secure gle by having that league that click from facebook. Is it going gonna financially benefit the middle lousy probably fund that journalism but also like who's getting the money and that's the other thing isn't it. Do we say in the case of google. You're saying google play pool. I mean that's true. That was a threat. Basically from being wasn't disable we'll pay in that kind of seemed to them a little bit. But do you say great. Journalism is being properly funded by google. Because they're going to give some money to news corp every time you click the link or do you say oh sorry open web. It was nice while it lasted but actually turns out we promote it was going to get the money anyway. The idea of the open wipe is tricky in anyway because as increasingly more sites are finding out a subscription model is is a way to have more stable income rather than appetizing income. Once it got a discussion there is no right. Answer that both valid but when it comes to how you fund journalism which journalism you decide is worthy of funding is stuff that is well read worthy of funding or is it only meaningful investigations. Take six months and nobody reads. Is that the sort of stuff. You should be funding. And who draws the line and where is that line drawn about what is worthy journalism. And what is just stuff that you found out that you're writing about and both valid like says it takes sports. Journalism is that valid journalism. And should that be funded. Is that less or more worth than a quick story about somebody who's been defrauded. It's a difficult thing about whether you make that judgment. The same as every publications editor is the story. Worthy should be a newsweek story. Is a bbc stories at wherever story. How do you workout. How you fund those things if you're a third party platform but also another reason that it seems that google have stumped up now as an an onion australia but the presumption is this might roll out elsewhere as well obviously is that they're launching. Google news showcase which is a new product isn't it. I think you need to google news app to see in the uk. So i haven't have you and also as a publisher as an editor. Does he really did these. Things really actually make any different. I mean how many links referrals do you get from sites like that and apple news really. I'm going to speak very vaguely about the level of traffic. That person's gusty. I think is the price of talking to say. I would puglia shame. The news traffic is significant across globally. So that it's it's not an insignificant patriot figures when you talk about the level of loyalty brings the branding. That's more difficult question. And there are no clear answers on that but take facebook facebook as you start. It's news initiative so announced the already launched in the us but announces launching in the uk. The next few weeks of that that plans to pay news publishers to be partnered with facebook so that that type of model is beginning already and we know that. Facebook and google provide huge amounts of traffic to publishers across the world. The ones where there're affiliate content and have been around for a while so we know so flipboard poker apple news. Are they actually significant. There's a user. They don't seem to me to be at yes that Flipboard is still flipboard user. Bases shrunk over the recent years because of google's controversial push towards its an platforms above flip boat but they are still all big traffic drivers. And if you're looking full patriots all of those are valid and can drive millions of patriot. Each month i think so once you get into the real multinational website so much sites. It's less of a percentage for this sites that that could be a huge jump in traffic. That could be thirty. Forty percent and on the smaller sites steve. A you mentioned misinformation an arguably. Actually if you've got kind of legit sources adding revenue for placement on sites like google. It away you can be sure about the quality of the journalism but at the same time you end up with a which is why the web existed you end up with that. A two lane highway. Don't you wear the smaller players and never given the prominence of the big players and it's actually harder to combat. Political narrative will propaganda that way than it would be otherwise it yet. I i suppose that's why you need to look a look at these other platforms. That are kind of imagine like capacity people having the different compensations. What you might get some full sensitive information beth. I wonder if that to access journalism days is always going to exist in some full and the people he won't say will find it but that he wants incentivized Look beyond really manny while they were
'Bachelor' contestant Rachael Kirkconnell apologizes for past racist actions

She's one of the Brun runners for Matt's heart, They believe so anyways, photos of her have been dug up from before she was on the bachelor at a plantation themed fraternity formal.

The buzzword hearing is locked down on but in china and we talk about lockdown. It's in the strictest sense one household household can only allow one person to go out once a day to purchase all the necessities unlike in europe. Or in the us where you have the luxury to go out and to do a lot of chores. In china it's really strict on areas. That are most affected by the pandemic. You're not even allowed to go all. There's a community officer who is on standby just to send all the necessities to you to your door.

I'm going to talk about cova impact on china's wine imports. So what happened to win. By the end of january china had locked down the whole country as a result restaurants hotels essentially closed and miss the most important chinese new year sales for anyone wondering how big and how important is chinese new year for a lot of wind merge and a lot of the a lot of them who i talked to told me chinese new year wine sales account for roughly twenty percent or even up to thirty percents of their i knew sales so imagine seven day period was lots okay and then imagine. That period was attended for three months. That's the challenge facing a lot of the importers in china and of course logistics were delayed because quickly the pandemic spread from china to the rest of the world Even when china in may and june recovered from the pandemic countries are like ryan's italy and you were in the depth of the pandemic dot affected global logistics while because we have the latest figures from china customs at a showed import volume declined by thirty percent. Thirty point eight percent to three hundred forty seven million leaders in poor value declined roughly thirty percent as well to u. s. one point eight four billion. This is quite significant. Because i want to joe attention to the fact that last year china's one import value already declined. We saw roughly ten percent job in volume terms and one percent in value terms because of the economic slowdown and trade war between china and was so the downturn. We are saying this year is a continuation of what happened last year as well. So that's you know might have a projection for what is to expect on what's to calm right okay. So next one. I am going to talk about because of the job in wine. Imports and how it affected merchants consumers and the price points are was sane on the shelves merchants of course when you have stalks that are meant to be depleted for chinese new year. That a stew setting in the warehouse. What you do when you have uncertainties facing forward you'll become a more cautious your becoming more cautious with your spending what to buy how to budget. That's natural response. A market exit suddenly. We're seeing a lot of merchants exiting the market. Unfortunately one of the examples with sane is from jovial. Many of you guys familiar with jovial so basically joe view is a wine and agricultural importing company backed by the tech giant nenova.

You're spending your accounting or the non essential standings unfortunate wine is counted as numb- essential on like you know maybe in france or italy or in the us consumers of course they're trading down if they are buying winds at all. They are really budgeting what to buy. You know what is the best value. What is the most affordable wine outing the market this can be reaffirmed by the expert on expert data we just from burgundy from january to september export volume to china shop to by roughly thirty percent and in value terms jumped by roughly around twenty percent and we see some increases in areas where Or shop elise. Those kind of increases assertion guan crew premier cru in terms of red and whites that Racing price-wise wines priced under one. Hundred orrin be is the most popular category one hundred.

Why importers in in the war in europe or in the us traditional ones heavily dependent on trade on restaurants and bars and hotels to win. The pandemic happened especially in china. Were the strictness of the lockdown is so severe on so carefully scrutinized at enforced restaurants bars were treated during the pandemic on china. We're talking about country that has ten million restaurants chinese new year. Like i said completely shot during the seven day. National holiday dining sector alone lost five hundred billion.

That's regulate Anything related to alcohol in china. It's very powerful organ and he basically said homecoming function for wine was essentially non existent as heavily relies on social consumptions such as restaurants to the decline with shoppers.

Why Fast Fashion Needs A Makeover
"In the last fifteen years, production of clothing has doubled, and at the same time, the number of times something is worn, has haft now that means that over eleven million garments landfill every week in the UK alone. Ultimately the novelty that fashion promises causing irreversible harm to both planet and people. This week's food for thought sees presenter and climate activist Venetia Amana. Join me to discuss why it's time for the wasteful fashion industry to clean up his act highlight Venetia Halloween. I think today's episode has been so I've Jew and I. Now I've been wanting to record it with you for so long. I think in a way we kickoff by discussing the fact that fashions wastefulness I mean. It's almost on a par with single. Use Plastic really if we're looking at the impact that it has. Yet it is. It's hugely not only wasteful industry, but also polluting industry. It's actually kind of looking to get into sustainability and thinking about the planet. functions of really good way to think about it, because it's very accessible way of thinking how a piece of clothing. Goes from from the US ultimately when you when you grow, grow, crops or something caught in, it comes from the S.. And then it's Picton. Soon and. All of these different things all these different prices which make up the supply chain before it's packed and delivered in lands on your doorstep Orlands in the shop future to buy but yet it. It's a huge. Carbon footprint the fashion industry. It's supposed to be one of the top two or three polluting industries and yeah, in terms of waste it's it's incredibly wasteful. we live in a timely fashion still of as. Something disposable fashion is incredibly cheap now and in other places, and because it's so cheap way often fail like it doesn't hold much significance, so we send a lot of close to landfill and a lot of clothing incinerated. All, at the same time, it's really really important is Barry Mind is that? Someone somewhere is paying. The paper will making a clothes or so, if not paid a living wage and eighty percent of them a female when we think about women's rights and bang feminists, we have to think about that with all cloudy, because we want to support all women right, and we want to support the woman who making all clouds goodness I mean. So many connections to what you've just said that intense of what I've done in my previous life. I'm thinking when I was at university and. I used to shop with these such and websites where claiming was so cheap, and I never made I never made a connection that it came from the earth I would I never even thought to the fact that impact to the environment and I definitely probably what I know I didn't. I didn't think about the chain of people and somebody somewhere that was involved with the price of making his clients and I. Think what you're doing on social media, environment is fabulous. You've recently raised Alana's with charity campaigns. You've been at the forefront to claim suggesting that the bronze behind them greenwashing customers. Could you delve into that I? A little bit? Yeah, absolutely. greenwashing as something that we say a lot in fashion, especially at the moment comes from the time whitewashing, which is basically when white people kind of whitewash industries like film, industry's takeover, different ways and Often, it's symbol creations when we as white people kind of commodified live. By coaches make are I might try and day and don't give credit where credit J. it's also kind of a marketing ploy, and it's the same with greenwashing companies often kind of telling us trying to tell us that during something good when they already notes. See this recently with kind of plastic auto companies telling US everything's okay, because that bottles are made from recycled plastic when Rabi. To bustles if we're in a position to do so like you know hair in. The U. K. is just refill will to right. It's like a much more money during it so with function. We see Fush Bruns. Greenwash. In lots of different ways and I, yeah I I've I've taken to social media to cool when it because. I have a when I want to use it and kind of tired of the nonsense, so bronze like eight am and Zora have a kind of conscious collections, so they'll bring out a small range of clothes that a made from various things like orange juice, pope and unical tears, or whatever is. And they tell us let's go, and I'm not gonNA deny that and say it's bad. It is good we should be using. Natural fibres when we might close, but the problem with Sutton fashion bruns. Is that sure that using a kind of planet friendly planet friendly dies and materials, but what about the people making the clothes and also? The share amount of clothing that them making doesn't make up for the good that I think the goods that doing concert. No point, not percent. If their entire business H. M. so is a drop in the ocean for want of a better phrase. On Yeah. I mean recently. We've seen a lot of charity in slogan, T. Shirts. During, the pandemic and this is this is very much a kind of. nuanced debates, and I I take quite a hard stance on it, but I I also really appreciate that. We have to look at both
"bruns" Discussed on Social Minds - Social Media Marketing Answered
"I'm really stunned for something and try and make a change and the, the ones that a winning in that market at the smaller ones who can adopt and change very quickly and then also probably thinking about what the next generation or after whereas the big corporations that have to move like an oil tanker. It takes a lot longer for them to put those processes in place in, in order to make those changes which can be a real risk. I think so. I think you've got to have that. So of this is what we try and do in here, model could change tomorrow. But social chain wouldn't die. I think for us, we always try and keep the full front of wasp. Possible doesn't have to be on social. It could be wherever anyone's attention is if something changes, and I think that's really important for any Bruns think about is, what's, what's next. If you were going to start a Brown today. If you wanna re-start you burn today. What would you what would you stunned for? I think the, the social chaining samples where the good we've had a few knocks along the way that any normal person will probably think that the business would have gone. A not been around anymore. So Twitter chain deleting. All pages, we had a hack at one point. There was loads of the bits and pieces that happens. The book usually meant that we wouldn't have survived. But we've adopted our business model to the changes in behavior to main that we can keep runs at the forefront of what's possible. If you think about product, offering now as well from where it was six months ago when Dan podcast invested. What's up marketing? We're now doing no survey. I in VR, and we, we adopt and change. And I think that's really important for Bruns to keep what pits like the high street, the high street haven't adopted suggest is inconceivable behavior. Nothing in order to not the extinct, you've really got think about how people behave and be willing to change. Yeah..
"bruns" Discussed on The Steve Deace Show
"That's your money as as an LLC that your money as a sole proprietorship that your money is an autonomous individual that your money is a married couple names on and your name's on it period. That's what I think we ought to do. Yeah. Yeah. To issue to after we redefine the definition between a re or reassert the proper alignment of the relationship between the the government and the governed. I think we need a very basic principle. Okay. And that is what is a human life. And what is not any culture that devalues life on any level will eventually begin to devalue life at every level. That's just not avoidable. That's human nature. The reason why people don't like slippery slope arguments is undefeated in all of human history. They've always won because we can't stop ourselves. Once we agree. Once we agree to run one of God's stop signs. We will not yield for anything else. After that. We will. In fact, if anything slippery slope arguments are wrong because we will sprint to the Maura. Not slouch. All right. So we need a basic basic understa-. Banding of the value of human life. I would put that at number two. But I don't believe until we have a basic understanding of of the of the role in nature of government and that we can acquire that. Because I think too many people decide what's best and right based on what the government says. And this is a government that begins with the words, we the people not we the government and the third thing. I would say is no no court. Can can legislate action ably. No court can legislate action ably. What do I mean by that? When we took on the judges in Iowa over the marriage issue. We never we never denied that the Iowa supreme court could rule Iowa's marriage law was unconstitutional because it says in the Iowa constitution, they have the appellate power to do that. But the constitution also says that they cannot therefore make a wall in response to that all lawmaking power rests in the power of the legislature. So if the Iowa supreme court wanted to say like this is what happened in Massachusetts, for example with the Goodridge decision. What happened there in that that the Massachusetts state constitution was literally handwritten by John Adams? And it literally says courts cannot make law court opinion is not the does not have the effective statute. Right. That's why we call them judges. And when we elect congresspeople are called lawmakers, they make the law, and so what happened in the Goodridge opinion in Massachusetts. For example, is the Massachusetts prem- court determined that Massachusetts defensive Marriage Act violated the fourteenth amendment equal protection clause like constitution. So they sent it back to the legislature and said, here's our view of this of this law. You have to act you're the lawmakers. Okay..

"And in the middle you get the chance for some altruism shirt. That's there. I think that's that is a biological answer. I think there's a spiritual answer to that as well. That that that even Trump's that biology at times, but I think that the quit your your premise or your question. Actually, I think is hurts my premise in that why don't people do that all the time. How come the same people that do those altruistic acts? I put myself among them, you know, I mean. I will go home and lose my temper with my wife. I will go home in lose my temper with my child. I will I'll lose my temper with with with my with my employees here. Why why will I do that? Do exactly do. I know that that it that it is wrong. Yes. Sure. I know that it is wrong. So I agree with you that human beings if it provided there's not a. A mental illness or mental breakdown or a sociopath e like you described or there's a a, you know, a learning disability, you know, but fully sentient developed human beings know, what is right from wrong. The reason we know right from wrong because we're made in the image of God who determines what right from wrong is. All right. The problem is we don't always want to do. What is right or we want? What we want? What we want to be? What is right? Sure. Whether it's right or wrong or not choice to be selfish. Yes. Yeah. We do that has that changed society or more selfish society now than we were when you were kit. Tell me give me an example of what you've you're selfish to answer that. Wow. Well, tell me what makes you think we're selfish society. So I can get an idea of where you're coming from. So I think it's the most basic thing. And I don't wanna get into tax policy because that's the obvious one that everybody comes to. But to the point of do we not do as good of a job? Policing ourselves around selflessness, then we did thirty years ago. I think in some respects we do. And then I think in some respects, we don't meeting that. I think I think I'm not there's I agree with small e Evelyn, for example. So I believe in a small e enlightenment. Okay. Me were clearly more enlightened than we were two three hundred years ago. We know more about the ways of the world in the universe in the cosmos than we did two hundred years ago, we know more about human physiology than we even fifty years ago. We didn't map the human genome until nineteen Ninety-three or whatever. Right. So. So there's been there is a micro. Evolution a micro enlightenment. Okay. And that information makes us more willing to do things. Like, you know, now that I'm more fully aware of how bad smoking is. Okay. I won't do this in your home. I won't ask to do this on a plane or I may do a jewel or a vape in order because I I'm in lighten to understanding to the understanding of what the consequences are of the of my. Choices are and I don't want to impose those on you. Right. But then I think there's other ways where where we now will I look at the text chains in our kids are are home schooled. You know, they're the they're, you know, they're allegedly sheltered home school kits. And I'll I'll look at all the text chains that they will have with their friends, and they will say things in the those techs chains. But if we said this stuff to one another to our faces someone was going home with a broken nose in a black.

The floor is yours, and I hope our audience enjoys listening and watching you, and I have a back and forth year for the rest of the show. So the floor is yours, man. Yeah. Thanks. Well.

I think there's far more commonality in Americans, and how we view things then then media allows us to believe. And that that's on both sides of the aisle, and and everything in between. And I fall in between. And so you know, you and I had a fabulous conversation about a year ago. Now sat down and breakfast. I've just always appreciated your perspective on things, and it's a tumultuous time in our country. And so at the end of that conversation to me the most fascinating part came out. And that's where I want to pick up and start off here, if you'll remember we we sort of got down to after talking about a number of issues, we got down to our our people inherently good or bat, and and we sort of had a difference of opinion about that tell tell me how you see people good or bad. Well, that breakfast that you mentioned I don't know that I told you this since we had it. I I was going through that year because I think it was around twenty that was in two thousand seventeen Christmas 2017 I that year for me. I I had your classic midlife crisis. Man. I did. And and a lot of it was professional. You know, I got into this environment to this business and my goal was to. Was too. That's why I would go on opposition shows. My goal was to to take what I believe and try to win arguments with it to convince people that don't agree with me of it. And what I what ended up happening in this last in that last cycle is there was so much horse bleep so much worse. Bucky that on my way to trying to win an argument with with with progressivism, I found myself having having to battle Horsely that was just pedaled to me of the most tribal Listrik variety, and I was really down. And you know, and and if this is really my career is will I hate Donald Trump, even when I think he's right. And while I love Donald Trump, even when I believe he's wrong. I'm going to do something with my life. And and I and I was just getting ready to start my annual Christmas vacation when you and I had that breakfast, and I walk in and you and I and seeing other in several years, and I mean, my wife will tell you I was in. Self-pity? I was dude I was freaking King Kong of self pity. During that time. I mean, I was I was in the fast lane of drain circling. All right. These guys were around me. They can probably tell you some of that. All right. Like, my what is my what's my point of doing this, you know, and I walk in and you and I haven't getting ready to have the breakfast. We haven't seen each other in a while I walk in. And these are your first words to me you said. Man. It's been awhile. I've been following your career, and it looks like it's really blown up and I can see you've lost a ton of weight. I see on your on your Twitter, your oldest daughter.

"So we have been looking forward to this for a while Ben Bruns is someone used to cover, and I realized that was twenty years ago and. There there. We actually went back. We actually went into the photo archives and found an old action shot they're back in the day. When Ben was one of I states, I think you were a cats on the two thousand team I wasn't you weren't. All right. Certainly we had a great season. And. Gonna be part of. And that team was the first I will state football team to ever win a bowl game right now. Everyone the school hadn't been doable game since what like seventy eight URL, Bruce, the old Ohio State coach was was on campus. You guys finished the year ranked in the top twenty five that I was stated not done that in a long long since we before Aaron was born. So you were a breakthrough player in that team. That's that's been there with the what's called the Cy hawk trophy. They've since upgraded it. Better. I I agree with you. I thought the quirkiness of it kind of added to its added to the mystique a little bit, you know, because now hy-vee came in and it's really pretty now. But it, but it doesn't have the same. We think football trophies on the college realm. You know, the pros you have this sleek, Vince Lombardi trophy, but on the college realm, you're thinking oaken buckets, and and Floyd a Rosedale pigs, and and, you know, Brown jobs and hy-vee comes in like, we're gonna put this really pretty like sculpture together. Like, let's really pretty, but it doesn't look like how football trophy. But Ben was a great player at Iowa State. That's how I encountered him was covering him on on those teams at the beginning of my sports career. Then we ended up covering I will stay together. You're the sideline reporter have been for the cycle and radio network for how long now since oh two so long time. All right. So here's why we brought that in because we. Have we have tried numerous times over the years numerous times to find people that don't agree with most of what we think to come and talk to us one of the this is one of the reasons why used to go and do when a lot of my peers in national conservative media would not I would go do a lot of appearances on an MSNBC or a CNN things of that nature, and I don't do them as much anymore because I frankly seems like most of the panels are racist or am I really a racist? And I just I don't have time for that. You know, if you wanna have a serious dialogue with me. Then I kind of don't care. What names you call me? If we're actually talking about something serious. But if it's just, you know, hey that bathing going to click itself, then I'm not too interested in that. But one thing I know about Ben is is he's released mart. So he won't do that. Plus, I know he will not be intimidated about coming in here. Given what he used to do in a past life when he used to step on the neck of of little weasels like me. Right. So what I wanted to do Ben when I thought, and I told the audiences how we were going to do this. I thought this would be the most fun way when I love to leave leave QNA time when I go speak at places around the country because that way, I know if it was up to me, I would just do the whole thank you. And the reason why is that way. I know I'm addressing what the audience cares about rather than I come on come in with my message, and it may bore you to tears, you know. So I thought you're you're well versed in interviewing people and and controversial situations. So I'm going to turn the com- over to you. And I told you you could literally.

So it would probably be, you know, and I'm the guy that if we're gonna have company we gotta get up clean everything up, and we don't really have that much dirt around anyway. But I'm just that. I would say that's probably for the people that know me pet peeve. They hate about me, the most I would guess. Might tone. Get like that. But I never change it because it's not what you say.

"It's it's a little bit overrated. I'm still going to watch every single year. No matter what most underrated. I need to get my man card because I think it's the Olympics. I like the Olympics. I love the Olympic when the when you know when NBC Lester Holt is not over there fawning over the beautiful buildings and North Korea. The Olympics are fun to walk colorful, look at all the different colors head. I'm not had to dig in on soccer. I would have absolute gone with the Olympics. And that would have offended you as well. So that. I don't mind the Olympics. I'm not they're not as interesting to me as they were when it was us versus the Soviets. And there was a real rivalry there. You know, but I don't have a problem with them. Yeah. I to me, you know, Glen goes to work every morning and allows and puts up with stews vegetarianism. And that's kind of what you and soccer are on the show. We just have. Agreed. You bring enough other things to the table. We will just stomach it. Should we talk about the instant replay and sports? No. But definitely before we talk about soccer. Yes. Question. Number two. What's the biggest theatre letdown? You've ever had you're going into the theater going to watch a movie or sequel or something really anticipating see less shed. I last yet. I I I was Steve it's the only no one other time you, and I went to a movie wolverine the now the the Logan Logan movie. Yeah. I went to that one. And I I could not believe it because we, you know, your your post Star Wars you're walking out. He had no I didn't say anything in front of Noah, and we're on the park in line. So and he asked me, I what do you think that was dreadful, and he's like I really liked it as come. This is not thought that was going to go. And so here we are. I love the last year. I think it's a great movie. I just think it's a terrible sequel to the force awakens. Okay. But I think it's phenomenal. I think it's a great movie. The two there's there's a tie for this one Star Trek generations. I mean, how do you not crush Kirk and Picard in the same Lovie? And how do you make the villain a ribbon that takes you to Buddhist nirvana traeger d- by Whoopie Goldberg? That's peak tricky, and that's the yes, double minded, which is which is why the next movie they had to come back with the Bork and kill some, and they did the they did the next generation version of wrath of Khan. And that was that was the by far the biggest movie that the next generation crew ever had. Okay. So I walked out of Star Trek generations, a finicky someone after that movie. And then I think there might be a dead body somewhere outside the century theatre by Jordan creek mall, yet undiscovered following my viewing of Justice league. In fact, there may be a collection of them. And I want to go ahead and say, I kind of hold a Dexter.

"So I I want to keep an eye on the leisure wing of the coming one world government conspiracy. Otherwise known as soccer. So you see you were brought here under the guise that you know, I would kind of you of work as as an adviser slash accountability. You know mentor appear in my age group, you could you know represent a viewpoint. We have, you know, conservative me as a mass Catholic audience, and you could represent that those those were all. Those weren't those were the right reasons, but they weren't the real reason the real reason that you were brought here. Is because I am keeping an eye on the soccer invasion through you. That's why you're here. So overrated is any event involving soccer starting with the World Cup. That is we hold these truths to be self evident kind of self evident. Underrated. Game seven. Of a Stanley Cup playoff series. In overtime. I think it's I think it might be the best the best thing in in North American team professional sports where it can flip literally in entire season at anytime can end on any play, and it could be random it could be something you don't seek them in or it can be the dreaded thing you do see coming. But and it's your favorite team in. It's like developing in slow motion before you, and you're not empowered to step through the screen and make it stop. Right. There's absolutely in my view. I think there's nothing like it. Most Americans miss out because hockey doesn't do a great job of marketing self in the season's too long. And as they say in hockey, let's do that hockey. Right. But I I'm telling you game seven of a Stanley Cup playoff series. In overtime is the most underrated sporting event in my view. That's a good one. It is. I will stick with stockers. Underrated. I I will not I will not accept your virtue, signaling on hockey, thirty two. For that very reason. So I'm going to ham it up don't you think a quick breakdown for those of you who don't enjoy blast from the past. As stated thirty two teams representing thirty two countries will gather in Russia for the World Cup. The United States is being left out as punishment for their brutish and uncivilized ways. Those thirty two teams are broken up into eight groups of that's our version of soccer kept that going oh dance to the knockout round, which is a win or the match the favorites. From each group are as follows Uruguay Spain, France Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Belgium and Columbia. Oh, gosh. That's I forgot how great that was women's World Cup this summer done yet. Maybe overrated. It's gotta be the NBA. It's. I do. I don't wanna be that guy. Does not appreciate the awesomeness of the ethnic capabilities of these guys.

"I just wanna say a quick thing about the whole Ilian, Omar antisemitism. I still believe they're going to dump her. The the issue. They're running into is. They've got so many victims in grievance groups. I mean, the story yesterday about the school district in the UK then had to dump rainbow jihad indoctrinating because there's a high population. High Muslim population in that district and the Muslim parents want their kids being indoctrinated by that. That's like a sixteen one upset there in the in March madness. Well, did you intersection album? Yeah. How did you describe it as spy versus spy stuff? Yeah. You know? Here's what I think that is Representative of. The goal of of the of. And maybe I need to clarify because there are different branches of progressivism. There's your teddy Roosevelt kind of progressive that would be Mitt Romney kind of guy. Right. Then there's your run of the mill political progressive. Maybe we need to further clarify what I mean spirit of the age progressivism, I've been using that term a little bit this week. Meaning this is this is a religion. Okay. This is a competing religious system. Spirit of the age, progressivism. It's intended goal is the deconstruction of Judeo Christian orthodoxy. And whatever. Whatever would the intersection -ality scale. I would define as spirit of the age, progressivism. And if you look at the ranking system. Can I can I translate with that ranking system is can I give you can I tell you. What it really means? Here's what it really means. Whatever has the most constructive property of Judeo Christian orthodoxy is number one. Let me repeat that. Whatever has the most d- constructive devas devastating effect over the current Judeo Christian orthodoxy is number one at the given time at the given time. What has over what what over the course of the last twelve hundred years has had a more devastating impact on Judeo Christian orthodoxy on this planet than Islam? What rainbow jihad no Islam is number one is Lomb. That's why rainbows Yod in the west see in the backseat seeing the back seat. Because the ultimate goal here. The people leading this are, you know, they may be inherently demonic likely, they're useful idiots for the spiritual strongholds pulling the strings behind the scenes, but this isn't about this. This isn't about love is love and isn't about diversity, and this isn't about racial. It's not about any of those things and never has been. That's why if you're if you identify as a person in those groups, and then the minute you start thinking for yourself like our John Miller here at the blaze, or Dave Rubin. For example. That's why the minute if you start thinking for yourself they strip you of that identity. You don't you don't belong to that identity anymore because it's never about being black. It was never about being same sex attracted. It was about belonging to the cult of spirit of the age, progressivism. You are no longer performing your obligation to this cult to help deconstruct the Judeo Christian norms of western civilization the minute. You cease being useful in that quest? Then. You have your of no use. And that's what you saw play out in the school district in the UK. What is what has a more devastating impact? Islam. Proven that for twelve hundred years. It's not historically even debatable point. That's why it sided with the Islamists and told the rainbow Jihadist day. Don't get up at here. Wait, you turn. You're watching that play out right now with Ilian, Omar. So they are aware she's killing them. They would not have gone down the road of of this of this statement of this proclamation. They would not have stayed would not have gone down this road. If they did notice.

We're gonna have some fun and an old sports media. Peer of mine. That is I guess I want to be fair, and I don't want oversell at the same time. So I think it's fair to say he would be more liberal than me on some issues. Yes. Think that's a fair. Is that a fair description thinks he says that's a fair. Okay. So one of the things he does. Now, he's like an architect. So he's really smart. And then when he's not being really smart he is the sideline reporter for the for the Iowa State football radio network. And that's how we got to know each other because I used to cover him when he was a player, and then we used to cover the cyclones together when he got into the media. So I thought it would be fun because we trust me. We have tried to do this many times. I saw. Somebody toddstarnes over at FOX nation was talking about this on his Twitter account that he keeps trying to get people from the other side, you know, and they're not often interested in having these conversations. And when we have an opportunity to do what we like to take advantage of it. And since I've known been for going on twenty years. And I am so depressed that that's true. I said that out loud. So since I've known our guest who will be with us next hour for upwards of twenty years, and since he was once an all big twelve college football player. I know he will not be intimidated. And because we've had a relationship for a long time. I think there is permission to speak freely without worrying about hurting each other's feelings. So I'm gonna let him come in next hour. You know, he's got some experience interviewing people in in hot situations. And I'm gonna give I'm gonna turn the floor over to him. And I'm gonna let him interview us from his perspective. And I told him don't tell us what we're talking about. So this could be it's it's our theology Thursday, there could be some theholiday, and there there there could be some philosophy in there. There could be some contemporary, you know, socio economic or geopolitical issues in there, and we're just gonna sit here and shoot the breeze and let him try to put us on the spot and come now in reason together, so we're looking forward to that in the second hour of the show.

Because every I if you ask towards to nano if you ask Stephen a Smith all point to K D to the Lakers, if he is critical of the environment in thinks it's toxic to be in LeBron's world on the Bruns team.

It just doesn't make sense. If you're gonna do that, you're staying gold state and keep winning. So I think he's New York. I think that's going to new if he doesn't stay in Golden State.

In some ways, you know, the Lakers would have had a better chance of getting Katie this off season had LeBron's gone somewhere else. Right. And they got Paul George because Katie George just Georgia whatever because Katie looks at Paul George I'm better than him. That's my team. It would be show dryer. That's my team. Yeah. I mean, the Lakers would have been have an easier time attracting coli if they got Paul George now, that's not to say they shouldn't have gotten LeBron if LeBron.

"Having Bruns and stuff show around like controversial plotlines and things, and it's just like these really touches that you just don't think about. So they go above and beyond to create a very faithful copy of something that's real to still make it look real. So we now in TV we're a long way away from sitting watching TV drama, and you can see like the computer system that using just doesn't make any sense, and it completely removes you from the reality of that moment. And in a big budget production, this can't reach that happening. So the going to painstaking detail to make sure that all of those sixty computer screens are believable. Yeah. And they're also some are repeats in there. But as there, some that are just sort of the ones I showed onscreen prominently are designed a lot more closely than the ones on background screens. How much do they actually work? I mean, we see things like. David will be like looking something up in a database and bring up a load of results, or he'll be googling something. And those keywords will bring up some very telling answers. I presume that. So just faked. Yeah, it pretty much is on the Google thing is really interesting actually. So the designers for this was saying that they had to recreate a version of Google so isn't isn't Google as we know it. It's a program that runs on that computer is basically an animation and you can control it and it can be controlled remotely. So the David bud, clicking on the mouse will do things, but only so of set program. So you couldn't. He couldn't do. A search is particularly like different was meant to show. There's only one option to do that, and they were saying that they had to. They have to go through Google in this process to make sure like get Google's approval to make sure that it's actually realistic. So they were saying that there was like. In this example that there were things that weren't quite right in terms of if you were using it wouldn't do that. And so basically come back and say, you can't. You can't show something that's an artificial process with our brand name on. So they have to go back and forth lotta times, make sure the right size is it looks and acts in a way that you would traditional search. So I just don't think about that and find it fascinating that people recreating Google multiple times and having all the results of as they would pretty much show, obviously slightly doctor for the show you would assume the Google which is beautiful. But I guess what we've seen in the past, they would have used a fake search engine..

Business rule: Treat your employees well and they will treat your customers well
"Business radio, talk with Craig, MC, voi-, Craig. You've given us some great insights. One of the most important ones I want to go back to even before you. You hit us with these four principles that are in the. Doc was to focus on the employee's first and I can't tell you how many times I've quoted herb Kelleher on how important it is that if you take care of the employs a tear care, the passengers on south west airlines, and if the passengers are happy, they fly again, that makes all the stakeholders and stockholders happy. It starts with employs you hire good people. You make them happy. They wanna come to work. They wanna take care of customers and it's more than just their job at something they're fulfilled in some great takeaways so far, you know, start with the brand purpose. Know who your audience is, your customers, your employees and the community people that aren't necessarily customer, but we'll talk about you and what's the approach used to reach the audience in the fourth principle was, what channels are you using to connect with the audience? All right. Give us one or two more. Before we end up here. You've got great content, and if this doesn't entice people to say, I want more and we'll find out in just a few minutes how they can get more of you not just your book, but give us another one. Or two of these nuggets. So we've spoken about the the employees being many important, and I'll fifth principle that we work with is about what is it that you offer as a brand? What is it? You offer that any different than anyone else in the marketplace and how do you expect to attract the right consumers and the best customers on those? So the best employees, if you don't have an offer, that's compelling indifference, you competition, right. So you know, employee experiences is absolutely paramount on the best people will go to work for the best brands and the best friends are the ones that are identifying who the right fit is for those, though their own brand, who's the right people to work for for that brand. I'm wanted his, they value so that they can offer them an experience. That means they never wanna leave unless the same, whether you're a customer or you're an employee, how. Do you make it feel like this is such a good fit for me? I don't really ever want to go anywhere else. I love it. All right. Number six. Well, number six is a huge topic, and that's roundabout the topic of what we call advantage. But really, it's about understanding how you can use insights in order to drive value to create competitive advantage. So you know, we live in now way you can collect that much dates about somebody. It's unreal. Yes, so so we have so much so much dates, trillions of gigabytes dates for about people, but yet none of that really matters unless you can use it effectively and turn into insulin value. Right, right. But if you get the right, if you get it right, you can really, really stunned down. You can really make a customer feel like you understand them Beck's anyone else. It takes away the hassle because you you just know what they want and you make sure that you make it easy for them to get what they need
