Traffic and weather on the 8s here let's check things out on this Monday morning with Jack Taylor. That's a little unexpected at this hour, 66 in Virginia going eastbound, we'd had a work zone that was out through the overnight after one 23 where single file left had been getting by, but we have watched cameras for the last ten minutes or so. No traffic moving, 66 going east lot of equipment being shuffled around at this point along the right side and we're beginning to see the literally the trickle now beginning once again the left plane getting by on 66 eastman after one 23. It had been paused for quite some time. But again, hopefully this crew is in the process of removing itself completely and then we'll have all lanes open. But for now, 66 once again moving eastbound after one 23, single file left. Otherwise, in Virginia, good start so far, riding along 95 north out of Fredericksburg into woodbridge into through Springfield. Bellway's looking good between Alexandria and mcclain, no early troubles to report on the greenway or the toll road. All right, in Maryland, we've got trouble as you leave the bay bridge, going 50 west, you're fine till you pass cape saint Clair, something occurred right at the beginning of the severn river bridge that has got all lanes blocked with at this point, the talk of beginning to figure out where to put traffic from 50 west, not across the severan. So you may be running north on route two, possibly down four 50 across the naval academy bridge, but for now, no traffic moving 50 westbound after 7 river bridge, eastbound, the left lane is closed, but right now causing no delay on the eastbound stretch.

Reaching the Finish Line With JD Vance
"Tim Ryan, the pretend moderate, calling for a release of half of all the federal inmates, play cut one O three. Thank you. You've made an ACLU commitment to reduce mass incarceration by 50% during your presidency. So speaking of that commitment, can you walk us through how you would go about doing it? Yeah. There's a lot we have to do. And it ties into a lot of other areas. But I would personally try to start with marijuana laws and getting marijuana off the schedule. Man, just open up our prisons. By the way, anyone who panders like that with the ACLU should not be a senator for the state of Ohio. Because ACLU are the same people that are cousins and sister organizations to people that want to legalize all drugs and then meanwhile, fentanyl is destroying the people of Ohio. People need to know about this. Yeah, that's exactly right, Charlotte, actually our team just identified a video of a couple of days ago where Tim Ryan said that he does want to abolish all limitations all legal penalties for drugs, including fentanyl, which, you know, it makes me realize Charlie like both at the individual trafficker level at the Mexican drug cartel level. And even at the level of China, which of course is manufacturing this fentanyl, the Democrats want to go easy on everybody that's causing this drug problem in the state of Ohio at all across the country. I just got to say Charlie sort of separate the substantive disagreements that I have with Tim Ryan. I watched that clip of him and I think to myself this guy after we beat him is going to have a great career as a used car salesman. There's just something about his voice or about his manner where, you know, it's like he's got a great 1994 Buick. It runs like new and he's going to give you a great deal on it. That's his entire ethic that's his entire attitude. And I think because of it, we're going to do very well in November.

"Their data and then they pull in their data and it's crashes your app. That's the only thing standing between you and the customer. And getting the deal done that just constantly raised the watermark for us, right? And so we said we wanted to be scalable from the jump, but you don't really know how scalable you need to be, how quickly that needs to happen, hitting the pavement and trying to sell just constantly push that watermark up and up and up to, okay, this is practical, you know, let's wait and see till the next customer comes around. Keep marching and keep improving because you could have science projects and you see this all the time with startups, right? They don't talk to customers, they build something that's perfect to them. They build something that's really technically slick, but it doesn't solve a real problem. And so I think for us, it was a balance of, okay, we know that this needs to be a delightful experience. We know it needs to be fast because that's how it has to be different, but we also need to be practical and deliver the features that people actually need to solve their problems because something can be fast, and if it doesn't solve anything, they know it's going to buy it. So as you step out on the balcony, when you look across all that you've built with canvas, what do you most proud of? I don't know if it's what we've built necessarily. I think it's the feeling that you get when you see a customer and this is almost like our first aha moment, right? That we have with the customers is, you know, you're on a call with them and they've connected their data and they drag one of the tables onto their canvas and they see all their data for the first time and sort of like a spreadsheet like a real time spreadsheet with a couple million rows in it and they can just pivot it or they can write a formula or they can filter something and create a chart and they have this pretty often there's this like wow I've never been able to see my data like this or wow I've never been able to work with my data like this and I think that's something that's really cool for us because it is different than what's on the market and we're trying to be trying to be different on the right on the right axis. There's that sort of first ah ha moment, which I'm proud of and then the second all moment is the fact when they realize that they can save a couple hours a week. Because of our tool, right, that they don't have to stay late, maybe one night, munching together reports for a board meeting or for a presentation to their boss or you name it. And I think that's ultimately one of the goals of primary goals to software as I used to make our lives easier so we can focus on the more strategic stuff and the stuff that matters and the stuff that makes us happy. Yeah, those two feelings are probably my thing that I'm most proud of right now. Let's flip the script a little bit. Tell me about a mistake you made and how you and your team responded to it. When you go out and raise money, there's venture capital, there's a little bit of an instinct, you know, bigger than you are and try to grow pretty quickly. And spend money on things that maybe make it easier for you to do that and hire people that make it easier to grow. Probably in retrospect, there's a portion of us that we got a little too excited and I think what you have to do is remember that building at the right way versus building it fast is probably the way to do it. And if people like what you're building, you don't need to force growth, right? You don't need to buy ads, you don't need to focus on a lot of marketing if you're building a quality product, people will find out. And so I think that's probably one thing that probably a mistake that everybody makes early on when their eyes get a little big. And probably something that, you know, after a few months of spending money and trying a few different things, we realized, okay, we can actually just go back to basics and just talk to people and build relationships and just keep building the product that we know that we want. And that will always that will always win. Well, let's dig into the future, so what is the future look like for the product and for your team? The data space is really complicated. I think a lot of business people get a little anxious when they hear when they hear about data. You start talking about a data stack and you start talking about these different tools and the technologies. And I think the data industry. I think it's done a pretty poor job of actually breaking down what's needed and what's the simplest way to get things done. There's a ton of vendors. There's a ton of people trying to make money and carve out their own piece of the value chain and really for us. We're focused on how can we make this as simple as possible, right? Everyone just wants to start out just give me a dashboard of just my different metrics across my different teams and let me just build the thing and I think most people find out that it's a lot more complicated than that. And really we're trying to position ourselves as, hey, we're the simple alternative to all of that. We connect directly to Salesforce to stripe to QuickBooks to all the tools that you use. You don't need to go out and buy this data warehouse, yet. You don't need to spend money on consultants to model your data. There is an easier way here. And that way that we're trying to communicate to the world is canvas, where you can just literally connect your apps without code and a couple of minutes to start building metrics like you wanted. And build a dashboard in an hour. So I think that's our ultimate goal and that's going to be the guy in life for the company for the next decade is how do we make data as easy as possible and as a mass market for everyone instead of the status quo, which is, hey, I don't know where to start. I'm going to hire somebody to do this and I'm going to wait a few months and spend a couple hundred K and hopefully I get a dashboard. So let's switch to you, right? Who influences the way that you work? You name a person or many persons or something that you look up to and why? It's a bit strange, but probably my dad influences me. My parents influenced me on just as a as a founder of something and you're trying to help companies but also sell goods. You have to prove trust before you can do anything and my dad ran restaurants and bars and things like that and just watching him be like a host and watching him try to create an environment that made people feel welcome that made people feel comfortable happy. I think there's a decent amount of that when you're building a product and selling the product where you have to show people that, hey, we're a small startup, right? Our success is dependent on your success and the product and how do you communicate to people that they should trust you and they should hand over their data and they should they should pay you. There's a lot of interpersonal hurdles to jump before you jump even a single product hurdle. And so I think that's something that's influenced me a lot where I treat. I treat the product and I treat the demo in the sales process like you're inviting someone into your bar or your restaurant as weird as that sounds, I think it's a digital equivalent of that because you're trying to recreate all the same all the same emotions of comfort and trust and fairness. Yeah, I think that's been a big motivation for me. Okay, so we talked about a mistake earlier, but a little bit different spin. If you could go back to the beginning, what would you do different or where would you consider taking a different approach? One thing that I try to tell folks that are just starting out too as well is something that's been really helpful for us and we probably started doing this in the past like 6 months is just writing and just writing about things that we're doing, whether it's things that we're building, things that we're feeling in the space, conversations that we're having with customers, conversations that we're having with experts and putting it out there to the world. And you don't need to pay for anything to market it. You don't need to add if you put it up on your blog and it's structured well for SEO, but it's not written for SEO. It was written for humans. I think it's pretty amazing. People will find it and people will, you know, like I was mentioning just trust you because of what you've written and they empathize with it and those are conversations that turn into customers, right? Because if you're putting your honest self out there into the world and maybe being a little bit vulnerable but also developing some unique insight, that's something that people just find. It's incredible. I still don't know how exactly people find some of our posts, but it really does end up in a strong relationship that eventually turns into being a customer returns into being a referral. So I think that's something I wish I just did earlier from day one. It's just talking about the problem. I think it's easy to be like, oh, we want to be in stealth mode and we don't want to put up a marketing site or don't want to put up content early, but it's like you're also staring down the barrel of a gun in terms of how many months of runway you have left. So why not put it out there? You trust yourself to execute better on the problem than anyone else. So go talk about the problem and if people want to copy you, they can copy you. But that's short term thinking, right? That's not long-term thinking. And they're not going to be able to copy your exact move forever. Well, last question, and I'm curious if it'll be similar to what you just said, but I'm going to ask it like you didn't, just tell me what you told me. So you're getting on a plane and you're sitting next to a young entrepreneur who's built the next big thing. They're jazzed about it. They can't wait to show it off to the world, and can't wait to show it off to you right there on the plane. What advice do you give that person having gone down this road a bit? I think first is you have to sort of look in the mirror and be like, do you really want to do this? Is this something that you're ready to put your life towards? You know, you can love something or feel so so about it. But if you really do love it, then it makes most of these days easy because there's a lot of days where it's not easy, right? You get nose and that's the system is designed to do that. And it's designed to make it really, really hard to get off the ground. Just making sure that they love what they're doing. I don't know how you would ask that, but I think there's a genuine sense that you can get that's like, you know, that passion and that curiosity about that space, regardless of their experience in it. And then I think the second thing is just making sure that they have all the right infrastructure set up around them to be able to be able to succeed. You need mentors. You need people that you can talk to. You need great cofounders that you can trust that complement your skill sets really well. And so I think it's one it's having the passions to having the people around you that are going to pick you up that are going to compliment your skill set well that are going to help you succeed. I think the last is just patience, making sure that you can, on one hand, work as hard as humanly possible. But on the other hand, be patient with the results. And it's really, really hard for humans to do. And so I think that's what I kind of just find myself in every day, which is like, how are we going to work our asses off today, but how are we also going to be patient about the results and patient about the next step that we're trying to hit or the next milestone or whatever? Because if you're going a hundred miles an hour and you're thinking a hundred miles an hour, it ends up getting pretty toxic and pretty difficult to just go through that day in and day out. And so you have to do you have to balance persistence and patience. No doubt, that's fantastic advice. Will Ryan, thank you for being on the show today.

Goodbye, Gas Powered Cars
"So I have to choose my words carefully because it is so terrible the proclamation by Gavin Newsom, the governor of California that no gas powered car can be so new gas powered car will be available to be sold in California. After 2035, which is in 13 years. That all new cards will have to be electric in the announcement, of course, of every major carmaker now. They're just going to go all electric. Is that? Is that correct? I'm not sure. I didn't GM. Well, they're phasing out Buick is not the same thing, obviously.

"Any other jock in America because I'm not going to put him ahead of mister Buick. But hey, man, let me tell you. Ryan Moore, I'll tell you that much. Well, you know, every time he comes to America, I mean, not every time, but you know, I just didn't get that right on broom. Hold on. Hold on. You're changing. You throw them in another curve ball here. Ryan Moore is a good jockey. He's not like William Buick. But ain't no blind has been sending chopped liver over here for about three years, okay? He's won a couple of, I mean, I wouldn't bet a question. That was so much. He ran second in the breeders cup turf and won a grade two steaks at royal ascot. I mean, he had a chance to run in the top three at least. Skulls, skulls. Yes, Charles. You know, statue of limitations runs out on everything but martyr okay in the United States. You know, you got to leave some of these races alone. You were dynamic and that woodbine race with that hall of dreams. You were dynamic, but look, let me tell you something. Mister appleby and mister Buick, when they bring horses from Europe, they are the truth. Ryan Moore and mister O'Brien are not the truth. Okay. I'm just telling you, Joel Rosario improves horses. He is a natural gifted jockey. Naturally gifted, chuck. You know, it's just like back in the 80s and early 90s when P Val, which riding at the top of his four. He was just dynamite. Dynamite. I mean, you just, when you made a bet against him, you just feared him. Because he can make a ten to one horse into a two to one horse. He's just a gifted jockey. They're different makers. And that's what Rosario is. When you look at he improves horses. And when you see him stay in with the horse, man. It gets better and that's just like

Thank you if you are subscribed and thank you for listening to day. So we're going to move on. You have these, you've done this in the past where you've come up with names of previous modeled automobiles. And you're like, oh, this would be great if they basically rekindled that name. Brought it back under like an EV banner, right? Right. You were always, you remember, you've had a couple of them. You're like, this one would be perfect for them to bring back and obviously. We're going to have to go deep into the archives on that. But they're a Pontiac or an oldsmobile or a mercury. What's it was a mercury, wasn't it? Ah, yes, it was me saying the grand Mark E there you go. Yeah. For Lincoln. Or the Lincoln Mark E because they have the mark 6s, the mark 5s, the mark remember, the Mark series, but the marquee is obviously it's spelled like a marquee, like a sign. So you play on words, but yes, I thought, and then of course Ford comes out with the lightning. Which was a previous model. That was completely decades of F one 50 lightning. It was something different in previous completely makes sense if you're going to go in EV direction to use that name. I get it. But yeah, I'm glad you bring this up. But now we have GM kind of play in the old nameplate. Trick again. And with this, it's an old favorite. It's not your grandpa's Buick anymore. You say olds will be able, but it's not your grandpa's view. Anymore, man. Kind of wish they would have ditched Buick and kept oldsmobile, but that's just me. Yeah. Yeah, there's a lot of things you could do with olds, man, no doubt about it. But apparently, apparently, GM has they filed for a patent or the trademark, I should say, for the Buick Electra, which makes complete sense if you're moving forward as an all electric vehicle manufacturer, it's a great name to pull from. It's another badge for GM. They had filed for this thing in Canada, which when they did that, they were speculation, would this be something that would be coming to the U.S.? Well, what we have found out is that GM has now also filed for that trademark name of Buick Electra into the U.S. as well. And to us, that's a pretty good sign that they're going to go forward with that concept. They had previously unveiled a battery EV concept called the Buick electric at the 2020 Beijing motor show. I think it was like last September or September before, 20 20, September 2020. And this story, by the way, is late last year when it broke, but we were trying to confirm our information and it is true. It did happen. But it's going to be classified as a midsize crossover..

The Things We Eat For Others
"We're closing off our six part series talking about food and relationships with writer baker and fellow food lover. Zoe dent berg. We recently published an essay from. Zoe called. never again will. I go vegan for a man about how in pursuit of a romantic connection. She stopped eating meat and dairy almost entirely. I found it's so relatable it's just part of being in a relationship that we don't really talk about a lot and usually for my experience. The person with the stricter diet tends to influence the other. so today. we're gonna get into all of that and more with zoe as well as ben. Weinberg the man who's zoe tried going vegan for welcome to the podcast. Both of you. And i am excited to get nosy. Things manda beer. So if you haven't read zoe's essay yet here's a bit of background. Zoe and ben went to the same college. The even had some mutual friends but they actually didn't meet until they separately moved to birmingham alabama for jobs after graduation. So tell us now about the first time you hung out one on one. How did that happen. We talked a little bit about how much we both liked cooking so then invited me over apartment downtown to cook. It was like this super-buick when you are when you're having this conversation does say he's vegan. His veganism was a running joke. It was one of the things that i learned about. Van nuys like. You're actually vegan. So i i did know that he was again. I did not know how we would cook together considering. I was allergic to half of his diet. Okay wait what are you allergic to. So i'm allergic to gnats in sesame all nuts all nuts and meanwhile i put like i love homocide. I love putting. That's is one of my favorite spices which zoe taught me has sesame in it. A lot needs in that one. Yeah yeah okay. We're gonna do this together. We're going to hang out and we're gonna cut. Yeah and then also do not tell me what you're gonna beforehand. He just like call me and gave me a gris relaxed. Because i didn't know what we were to cook beforehand. You know three hours before you're gonna hang out of van. I remember. I got there and you had the recipes pulled up your laptop and i was like oh like we can go off of this and you know we have to do the recipe when ben has a recipe is very adamant about sticking to it. Even though he's very chaotic in the kitchen. I feel the same way. It's all or

"buick" Discussed on The Stephen King Boo! Club
"So there's been an adaptation of from a buick eight in the works for a while. Now it's very much stuck in development. Hell here's a brief rundown of the rumor mill in two thousand and five. Jorge romero was slated to direct and adaptation written by jonathan sh h and richard chizmar in two thousand and seven romera was replaced by tobe hooper. i don't know i don't do. My research. production stalled in two thousand and nine due to budgeting issues more. Recently thomas jane of the two thousand and seven missed adaptation announced a new effort entirely at adapting buick. Eight which as of august twenty twenty has tapped. Jim mackel to direct. This is not potentially great news as everything that mac will has ever directed has scored under ninety percent on rotten tomatoes his most recent being the shadow of the moon which scored a pretty dismal. Forty eight on metacritic and fifty nine percent on rotten tomatoes. Could this be the product. Turn it all around. Time will tell chris what do you think. What would you like to see a buick eight adaptation. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say i would not like to see an adaptation of this at all. oh okay. I think that as a narrative it works as a book But i don't think that the idea of having this be an open ended mystery that is never explained would work as well as an infant. Yeah i mean the closest we've gotten to that in popular culture is the inception ending which made popular cultural Just insufferable for like a decade. So what's avoid that. Yeah and to with the inception endings. They're still a satisfying narrative. Clothes run in that. Leonardo dicaprio's character. It didn't matter to him whether he was in the real world or not. That's the whole point of him leaving behind the top. He doesn't care anymore but there is no satisfaction. And that's the point in. Yeah yeah and i feel like a lot of general audiences would not connect with that well. I've vibe with that. I was thinking it would be one of those movies that i think that in a lot of ways stephen king's adaptations are going to be a little bit higher quality just in from the production standpoint because of recent developments in special effects. You know i could see this being a really beautiful adaptation if done in the style of kind of it part one where you have like a lot of these kind of environmental shots you get you get a sense for this small community now that being said i do you kind of convinced me so i'd like to pitch a different adaptation so we can end the segment on a high note. Sure i think that this would make an excellent comic series all my god. Yeah with the right artist that would be yeah kind of in the style of old school horror comics because it has some of that camp written into it already with the concept. And i think that you could do some really some really good work. Visualizing some of these segments especially you know all of these dissection elements all of the stuff around characters like freaking out. Yeah i would if. I had to pick an artist for that. I would pick kevin o'neill who did what is kevin o'neill work done league of extraordinary gentlemen how he worked on that with alan moore. And he's done. A lot of love crafting esque monsters. very good monster design excellent. See here's i'm of two minds about this. The more i think about it on one hand. I would be afraid that an adaptation of this would try to give a satisfying explanation for the buick which it does not need but then again something like fourteen. Eight was not a one adaptation but was still really good. I'm always afraid though that we're going to end up with one too. Many not great adaptations. And it's going to end the stephen king renaissance that we're in right now. If the stephen king adaptations could survive maximum overdrive. They can survive anything. You know what that is an optimistic take to the segment on. Let's bring it over in honor of your show chris. this is a new segment. We are using to replace battle. The books were calling it. The stephen king fight club. So this is where we talk about how we would fight this monster or this this evil presence or or whatever. It is week by week because it would not be fair of me. Chris to ask you whether this was better than the tar tower would not be right. So you're an expert on fighting monsters. How would you go about this. Honestly i would do pretty much with the guys in the book did. Maybe i would keep it in a little. Bit more of an isolated area so people wouldn't be drawn to it but the monsters and plants and everything that comes out does not mesh well with our world so they pretty much die upon contact with our air in a matter of minutes right so if you keep it in one again. This is one of the things. I actually really appreciate about. This book is that they approached the problem in a very clinical way and in a very smart way. They had ropes around. They had people watching the car. When the light quake started. go off. They'd have at least two people on guard just in case something new popped out and people were always cautious. And they weren't glib and flippant with the whole with the car itself. Yeah i by that. I think it's hard because you know. Stephen king for as much as people rag on his endings. I think this one had a decent one. And i i almost this is a personal problem. I just wish that they hadn't come up with the right answer. You know what i mean like.

And i appreciate you We're going to move forward to the ins our literary analysis section so This is our literary analysis action. If you're joining us for the first time for from a buick eight you got weird taste. And i appreciate you. We set a timer. The timer is to make sure that we don't just ramble on forever which we will do my topic. This week is about the intersection of cops in media and effective monster design. I haven't timed it out. But i think if anything it will go under chris. What have you brought for us this week. So i've brought the so what i brought to. This was the connection that this story and a particular character has to the larger king universe excellent. That is tremendously on brand for this. Podcast so thank you for knowing our audience. We love to see it. Do you have a preference on who goes first You can go first jira show you are the host. Oh i am. I am the the the main host. I'm gone mad with power horrifying. You'll let me know when you're ready to have me get three two one go so this is not our first nor will it be our last steven king book about cops. Cops have a fascinating and wide reaching scope in american culture which we really really really can't get into a form in its segment. But i did want to touch on one particular aspect of police as a trope which serves the horror genre and buick. Eight in particular in media cops and debatably in reality are motivated by a desire to be in control of situation anything that cannot be controlled a threat and that makes cops an excellent starting point for horror. I wanna come at this idea from two sides using buick aid so i we're gonna do a bit of a deep dive on monsters effective monsters monsters. That are scary. Share some commonalities first. They have to be dangerous. A monster which poses no threat is not so much a monster as it is a weird animal Or if you're grill modell toro. Maybe you're next lover second. They abide by a set of rules. Although those rules may be to the audience take for example. The thing from outer space or the bob duke. Bobby duke has to be fed. Might cause one to murder their child but can be kind of sated through appropriate coping mechanisms. The thing can shape shift. But you don't know that i. These things are scary. They keep a monster realistic wallman. Tainting mystery finally. Effective monsters are often barriers to the motivations of characters within a story in horror. That motivation is usually to survive first and foremost but it does go deeper than that. The overlook hotel for example is countered. Jack motivation to keep his darker impulses contained in buick. Eight the central monster represents a clear danger to the troops in squad. Eight stand against there need to be able to understand and exert control over their environment. This brings a troop eight as a unit. There are very few through lines in the rag. Tag group of cops which make up buick. Eight other than their sense of duty. Devotion to each other and overarching need control their domain at all times at all costs the troops spent a lot of time exerting control over others and buick eight for example what they refer to as information management which in practice means repeatedly lying to the public the press and superiors about the existence of the buick. This choice is justified because somehow this group of officers is supposed to know best. It's their job when confronted with an issue to take control of it and keep it from the public. Why wouldn't that apply to the buick. This is where horror blooms because the buick refuses to be controlled. They can keep it locked up under constant surveillance and run as many tests as they want but the buick will not be understood. It feeds on the need to metal and it spits out creatures which are mind splitting alien now. This is where the metaphor starts to align less closely. The buick defies understanding but not necessarily control per se. The troopers were more or less right along the buick just needed to be cut off from society in order to starve as long as in touches it. It can't eat new people or speed out nude steve. In my opinion more compelling ending would have leaned harder into forcing the to change their tactics. I think it would have been really cool if the press did find out about it if higher forces did intervene and if that turned out to be the right move. There'd be some kind of gothic about that it would tie in with the themes of random pointless death already in the book and it could maintain the same mysterious nature to the buick s. Just my two cents though. I'm interested chris if you agree with my sense of what the buick is a metaphor four and whether you think it's.

Tesla Model S no longer recommended by Consumer Reports
"The second largest purchase for most of us in our lives or vehicles vehicle we drive and you don't want to do is spend a lot of money on a new or used vehicle and be on a first name basis with the mechanic you want that vehicle to work with the most respected survey of reliability each year is the one done by consumer reports and consumer reports takes thorough data from. I think it's more than a million car owners to develop a list of the most reliable brands to the lease reliable of all brands. And the thing is you don't wanna be stopped by the side of the road. You don't wanna have to pay to get your vehicle back on the road. You don't wanna be without it. And this year survey for the most reliable of all vehicle brands has a new number. One and the crazy thing is their rating is so high. Nobody's close and mazda. Mazda's forgotten about japanese brand. You know there might smaller automaker but according to consumer reports crunching of data they are the most reliable and who did they displace year after year. The most reliable brand year in and year out has been lexus. But lexus spell. All the way to third. And i'm telling you it's not close. Mazda eighty-three lexus. A seventy one lexus. Even guy beaten for second spot by toyota. Which is the parent brand of lexus. And there are reasons. Certain brands particularly very expensive. Ones don't perform well in consumer reports reliability ratings and its brands that are doing a lot of model changeovers. A lot of improvements models new features new that when vehicles are redone their reliability usually is pretty crummy and it takes a while to work the bugs out and i think that's why lexus fell to third nearly tied with them. Buick and fourth place honda. V hyundai sixth ram seventh. Subaru eighth portion ninth and died tenth. Now who's selling the most unreliable vehicles far far far away with the score. I don't think i've ever seen this alot. Lincoln got an eight. I mean that's as low of an issue could be and they dropped eleven places from the year before tesla came in second to last or second is the least reliable of all brands with a twenty nine. The funny thing about that. Tesla has the most loyal owners of any vehicle brand sold in the united states but the reliability thing. They got a lot of work to do also at the bottom. Volkswagen third most unreliable many fourth most unreliable and ford v most unreliable so liability is an absolute key decider. And what you buy for other people. It's style or an emotional connection to a vehicle. Prefer a lot of owners or would be owners of vehicle. Being reliable is really really important and look at mazda. They're sitting in the cat bird's seat by far number one.

"There's a change happening in automobile ownership. That is big time significant for your wallet. It started as so many other innovative things seemed to do. And the vehicle business. With tesla that has experimented with selling vehicle insurance along with your ownership or lease of a tesla and they only do it in a more limited fashion but something that maybe eventually they will roll out is a national thing. The reason tesla is so keen on this. Is that traditional auto. Insurers seem completely unprepared for an era where the vehicle will do the driving and and think about that. Thought you just sit there while the vehicle drives you to your destination so then if something happens in your in iraq. Whose fault is the car or is it you or is it. Some combination of which traditional auto insurers have fallen flat on their faces responding to the technological change in the market will general motors which is also installing. More and more vehicles with autonomous systems is now launching a car insurance business that they're planning to offer across the fifty states so they're only going to do it in a slow rollout 'til sometime in twenty one when they'll have the legal right to sell auto insurance in the whole country and they've not said when in twenty one it will be available but what they're doing at gm is you know forever. Even before tesla was cool. They've really pushed their onstar connected. Data service that's become steadily more sophisticated. So when you sign up if you choose to if you're a gm vehicle owner chevy Gmc truck buick. Whatever cadillac when you sign up you are giving them permission to figure out. Are you driving or is vehicle driving itself and if you're driving how are you driving. What speed are you going at. Are you doing jack. Rabbits stops and starts and stops. Are you doing rapid lane changes in other words. They're going to collect all the data on how you are operating your vehicle and whether you're operating it or the vehicles operating itself one of the penalty box things is if you don't have your tires properly inflated which increases the chances of you being in an accident when your tires or under inflated note to self if you don't have your tires properly inflated just generally not just about the premature wear and tear of your tires it can put you in danger. Get air in those tires. What i do is i have An air pump at home. That's a really good one that i can just Hook it up to the to the cigarette lighter. They're still is such a thing in the car and hook it up the tire and just watch the meter to see when he's got the right. Psi the right Number of pounds of air in the tire. And then i know that tire is right and safe but the idea of vehicle insurance changing like this is this is only the beginning where we will be judged based on who who's driving how we're driving and where we're driving and the traditional idea of auto insurance is not over but it's definitely at the beginning of the end in how we pay will be completely different potentially per mile of variety of ways that we will pay for vehicle insurance and if you are a gm vehicle owner and you have on star when this coverage is available. Look at it and see if it would be a money saver for you instead of being with a traditional vehicle insurer.

Fandom Esports and Esportz Network Eye Future Collaboration
"My guest today is David Veto Curve CEO and president of FANDOM. Ease Sports David. Thanks for joining the show and thanks for that help with pronunciation. No problems thank his. Bane of my life but elegant. Thank you. Phantom ease. Sports is entertainment company that aggregate curates and produces unique fan focus content. The company's primary product is the fan sports APP which focuses on monetize Phantom via the blaze blockchain this week. Fandom in East sports network side a letter of intent, and we're excited about potential collaborations in the future starting with this podcast. So. David you're the new CEO. Last year. We had Henry home. The previous CEO Phantom on the podcast. What are your goals for the organization going forward? Very simple we're looking to. Grow and engage with the sports community the partnership that you just announced with sports is really going to be one of the building blocks of that goal What we want to do is build out community where people can come follow their favorite games. Their favorite teams interact with what may be going on in those sports. Events live in real time. And engage with each other in A. Unique Way that is. User friendly and engaging, so you know there's two pillars to the platform. Both of them are built on data, so we have data coming in from in game data, win-lose draws matches certain spells happening headshots towers, going down on the other side of that we have content coming in from sports network amongst other organizations that we're working with of. For stories around the Games and behind the Games what our community managers than do as sort through that data create predictions that people can. Predict and engage in real time so as you're watching in event on. Your favorite platform, you know as long as we have data to it. You can play along with that and interact with that game as on, so everyone's used to. have two screens home, always watching TV and I seem to be scrolling through something on my phone. So this is a way to really close that loop and increase engagement have. Absolutely we're definitely in the age of two screen viewing twitch capitalized on that very early on with the twitch chat and realize the people wanting to talk about what they're watching while they play it now. We're actually at the age of probably three screen view I know there's plenty of times when I'm playing her stone. My laptop browsing twitter while watch TV show, which is probably not good for my long term, health but I do anyway. You know. I have a little bit of mild. Add myself fourteen tabs open three screens. I'm looking at a laptop now about another. Desktop screened decided in TV running. Right behind it in. You know having a focused conversation with us. This is just I. think rewiring our brains, but the amount of information that you can interact with today's just fantastic. Nobody. Be Thought you could do this and. You know even when I speak to some of our investors. In People Watch. People play video games gets more entertaining than anything. I see on all these three other screens in front of me, so why not? It's A. Fun Safe Place to work right here at home and enjoying. Good content. It's not hurting anyone, so I'm all for it. I'm all for it to. It's content and again it. It highlights that disconnect towards what people enjoy watching you the second degree Buick. People love to watch you play video games because they're not entirely watching the play video games. They're also on their phones. They're also in twitch chat. Unlike a intense netflix's drama, for example where your need to be focused on it, entirely or movie, or even a sporting event where you need to really be focused in people playing video games, you'll play a battle. Royale is very second screen viewing heavy, which just shows how people are consuming content these days. There's. No thank God. I don't have to phones like I said. There's no real end to what you can do, and I think that's what's really unique about what we're trying to do here. Vandam is that. Whether you're watching imbedded stream in the APP, or you're watching. That's stream from another platform because the data comes in, you're really engaging with. On one type of content on two different screens as opposed to watch in two different screens, two types of content on it, so it really. A completes the ecosystem and we can offer benefits to the companies that we partner with. For example from Addis showing on you know a streaming platform can have that admiral in in the hand held device or vice
Animal Migrations Track Climate Change
"Change is altering the migration routes of animals worldwide. Here's a look at new research on how to species have been affected first mule deer. Every spring in Wyoming vegetation I appears at lower altitudes before progressing up the mountainside, migrating mule deer, follow and forage on this Green Bay, but as a changing climate leads to more frequent and more severe droughts. The Greenery is not as bountiful as it used to be. For Her PhD research at the University of Wyoming Ellen Atkins tracked mule deer as they to the green wave, the green up lasted across the landscape for about half as long in drought years in comparison to wet years, and also the order of green up along these routes were less sequential, so an ascents drought compresses at reshuffles the green wave, and just makes it so that this forging bonanza that dear depend on in their spring migration is really compressed in time, and although the deer were able to keep up with the faster green wave, the nutritional value is lower leaving the animals less prepared for the challenges of the year ahead. Meanwhile in Europe. The population of swans that spend the winter in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands is declining. But when researchers looked at the data more closely, they found an increase in the wintering population of swans in Germany. It turns out that since the nineteen seventies, the swans wintering habitat has shifted an average of thirteen kilometers to the east each year. What we think is that the swans like do spent time in areas where it's five degrees Celsius, and this item has shifted in the same rate as the swans shifted eastward sets a strong indications for us that and actually move with this temperature line. Russia announced of the Netherlands Institute of Ecology. Her team also found that the swans. We're spending less time in their winter homes before flying back to the Russian. Tundra to breed. Neither the mule deer, nor the Buick Swan is endangered, but the findings have broader importance for our understanding the conservation of migratory animals because If you stop thinking of protecting certain plot of land, it's not just the current situation that is their nature is dynamic, and the species that are present now might not be present in ten years time, and not because we didn't protect, but maybe because these species are actually dynamic in ways. We need to include this resilience and the dynamics of nature into our legislation and management.

Michelle Martinko - Forever 18
"Over the course of the next two weeks or so. You're going to go on a journey back in time. The evidence in this case will take to the year nineteen seventy-nine specifically six days before Christmas summer. Nineteen nineteen seventy nine show. Marchenko was a girl out on the town in nineteen seventy nine eighteen year old. Michelle Martin was in her senior year at Kennedy High School in Cedar Rapids Iowa and on December nineteenth. She was headed to a Christmas banquet for her school concert choir at a local hotel she had the adorable little rabbit fur coat and she do her era blue. What I refer to as the fair Faucet flip and she to her hair makeup and You know we're pretty dress. And that's very typical of how she dressed up if she was going home. Michelle left the banquet and headed to the West Stale Mall to pick up a coat. Her mother put on layaway for her when she got there she ran into a group of fellow students who had also just left. Think about the time that we did come out of the store a friend of hers and a friend of his they we read. We did run into them out of the mall. Michelle had been spotted by her ex boyfriend. Andy sidell Andy says he thought Michelle was at her choir banquet so he thought it was the perfect time to buy her Christmas present for Awhile. Marina went down on remember. We went downstairs. I think there was an escalator. There I don't remember which route we took. It just went went down towards it. Hey wasn't expecting to see a here. I'm going to go back up and go get your gift. Please don't follow me. She agreed and told Andy She'd give him a call later that night. Michelle then ran into another friend. Curtis Thomas who was working at a clothing store. He took is break with Michelle and they went to get a bite to eat upstairs at the food court but the two ended up talking for too long and he had to get back to his job but Michelle said she was going to leave and so we walked past the store and we kept walking and we turned to the first exit. Pass my store and we walked up to the door and she said she was going to go and I said I had to go but we were lucky we were talking. My don't be a stranger. You Know Michelle bundled up and headed out. Another schoolmate saw Michelle coming out of the exit from the mall and going towards the parking lot. She said she saw Michelle carrying packages in a bag appearing to be in a hurry other people came out at that same time but. Michelle was by herself an employee who is closing down. One of the stores noticed Michelle's car still in the parking lot sometime between ten thirty and eleven PM. There were few cars left so it seemed out of place around this time. Michelle's mother frantically called her friend. Jane she asked me if I knew where Michelle was. Well I asked me of. Michelle is with me and divide now. Michelle was would I have any idea or Michelle would be. Jane didn't know it was a school night and she had gone home early to work on our homework. Michelle's mother called police at two. Am to report. Her daughter. Missing around four am Cedar Rapids Police Officer James. Kincaid phoned her gold seventy two buick four door in the mall. Parking lot with the rear driver's side door unlocked dispatchers instructed. Him to open the door was she was sludge down the door. Several stab wounds on her chest and Remember seeing laceration on her Chin and she was no signs of life twos. Obviously Dad the officer then radioed for backup. Michelle's body was laying inside of her car. Curled into the passenger side seat floorboard stabbed multiple times and bloodied from her wounds. Crime scene investigators collected evidence. They preserved it not knowing. If anything of value could be found the case would remain open for the next thirty. Nine years you will hear that the advancements into science breathed new life into the investigation and provide a glimmer of hope for the investigators that the answers they sought may lie in the eyes of physical evidence still remaining from the nineteen seventy-nine crime scene those advances included the capability to test for DNA in bloodstains found Michelle's black dress and on the gearshift selector in her car. New leads and developments in technology led investigators in two thousand eighteen to a pizza joint. Forty five minutes down the road from the West Stale Mall there. They found themselves sitting in a booth staring directly at the possible assailant. That suspect got up and left afterwards. Investigators took a straw from the glass. The target had left behind. The evidence will show the comparison of the DNA that was able to be obtained from the Straw. Used by the defendant in the suspect male DNA profile from Michelle's dress revealed an outstanding development for the first time in the investigation of any suspects. A defendant could not be eliminated as a major contributor to this profile. Who was sitting across from the officers at that pizza parlor. Was it someone? Michelle knew someone. She cared about someone she trusted or was it a random individual were after thirty nine years. Her family friends and the police finally had the answers to the questions that had evaded them for so
15 Years to a SaaS Exit (Plus Why Forecasting is Crucial)
"Matt wincing. Thanks so much for joining on the show again. Hey thanks for having me on again absolutely man so I talked in the intro about you. Growing risk pulse finding CEO. And selling it and I always ask people who've had these life changing exits. What was it like when you looked at your bank balance? You hit refresh and you see all those Zeros for the first time in your life. Yeah I think I think for me. It was a huge relief. Just because just the sheer number of years that I put into it. It was not a hey. Let's let's bet the summer on this. You know it was. It wasn't quite bet the farm. I didn't go that far like if it hadn't happened. Things would have been okay but you know I was very invested in. It adds it was. It was a huge relief to see that. Definitely as you said life life changing and you know obviously life improving but really just that peace of mind. You know that you don't have for sometimes very long startups indeed. It was a really long journey for you. Right it was was it fifteen years. Yeah I had the idea in two thousand and four side Yeah I. I went from idea. No four drawing little notes on posted on my lunch hour while on break is a software developer thinking. Hey you know steps one through four of starting startup. Let's do this fifteen years later. Congratulations man did you. I know all the listeners are thinking. Did you buy anything? Did you buy a Porsche to buy a house? I yes I did. I did a couple things. We've been postponing a great ski vacation. For a long time it happened in December. And guess what if it was time so it took the kids? Something I've been wanting to do for years was take the kids out of vacation. So we we last minute booked all. That didn't worry as much as you normally would about the last minute rates and went up to Whistler Canada and had had a great time with family invited family to come join us so that was great and I did have a you know inherited a car for my parents few years ago just because they didn't need it anymore and I was like okay. You know an extra commuter cars always helpful especially when it's paid off and was able to get rid of that and get a new vehicle show great very nice. You know. It's funny because when I was there's a podcast called the tropical NBA and Danny and talk about Entrepreneur Mobiles. And it's basically that she pieces that you drive while you're trying to build your company because they're not actually making much money so I drove a salvage title. Two thousand six Buick rendezvous at one point had a bunch of duct tape on the mirror got hit and I so I drove that up until a year after I sold trip. I like that car totally and and then the next car. It's a nice car. It's a Volvo. It's the nicest car I've ever owned. In fact it's I still bought it us though I could not. I couldn't bring myself to buy a new car but yeah that's funny I we. We had the two thousand five Toyota Sienna minivan which we put two hundred and fifteen thousand miles on as as a family and we replaced that with a you know a modest functional SUV. But then I had inherited a car for my parents that was An oath four and it worked. It was fine. It was it was exactly what you described. It was paid off and worked and got me from place to place but I tried it and I did get an off lease vehicles because again I wanNA to pay the depreciation but it's a lot more fun to drive once a scrappy founder always scrappy founder. That's Yup it's hard to change it so I wanna I wanNA ask you about a couple of things. One thing that you did. That was super interesting. Risk Pulse is build the SAS apt multiple seven figures. And then you replace yourself with a CEO and you moved on to start summit. Which will you know? We'll talk about towards the end of the interview that it's very. I say it's unusual. Most people don't go through that experience most people aren't able to find a CEO. It's not even on the radar of a lot of people. What was that process like? And why like why did you? Why did you take that step? Yeah it was. It was a process and I think it was the deciding that he was going to be. Ceo was definitely last step in a mental journey. That started with you know. We need a experienced enterprise sales executive to join the team and I had a recommendation from a board member which is a great example of how board members can be value. Add is helping you find top talents. And in this case he knew him professionally. They'd worked together before and you know with somebody that had significant experience building companies from the few million in revenue to the next phase so kind of the ten employees two hundred employees face which is a great fit for where we were and so. I I initially hired him to be chief strategy officer which is a fancy way of saying not quite sure what your title is going to be but I know that you have a lot of experience and we want to just get you involved in the first things. He did was really focused on sales and overhaul in the sales process is an enterprise. Sales processing had more even though I had more experience in the business of course. Because I've been doing it for years. He brought in that outside experience and revamped. Our sales process professionalized. It and that was kind of the word. It was really going through in professionalising each function in the in the company and after sales it was marketing and customer. Success and Finn OPS and kind of all down the list and then lastly would just kind of got to the point where you know. It wasn't that I didn't want to manage him. It was more you know what's in it for me. Like why? Why do I want to hold onto? Because it was clear that point that he could be. Ceo and that. I didn't need to be so it was kind of an either or and without any forcing from the board. I mean this was completely my idea. I said I'd never intended to run this company forever. That's not my that was not my identity and I think that's that was like the key decoupling that was already true in my mind and heart was like who. I am is not the CEO. Repulse it's the founder of response. Maybe a little bit more but you know the CEO to me was always a always a title. That could be changed at some point tonight. I always intended to change it at some point so it just became a natural transition to say. He's that person now announced to the board. The board was I mean if anything they were a little surprised at my willingness like it was almost like what you said if this doesn't usually happen and it isn't usually peaceful when it does happen but yeah I think that's a that that should be the goal of maybe more of us like a peaceful transition of of leadership and power. I mean that's that's kind of. It's kind of a an important tentative of well-functioned organization so I was happy to do it. And it just immediately freed me up to focus on just the things that I was world-class ads and still wanting to focus on and then ultimately wind myself out of the
Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead
"The right songs all the time. What's your process life stuff going stuff going on in my head? All the time Right now I'm I'm kind of writing all the time. Yeah it comes out very very slowly slower than slug in a trance but But keep at it. Yeah in the past. You worked a lot with lyricist and I understand. He passed away. Is that How do you fill that gap? Or How do you magic working going forward? We'll have always you know always working with John Birla liras host but I always road like half of alerts or usually wrote half alert as and would you have come first. And he would finish them. Generally speaking yeah Generally speaking I would come up with whatever it was that Mary that lyric to that music understood and and you'd have already the framework Melania. Leave yeah the phrasing. Yeah or you know some big notion of that yes would would. How often would a song change from the initial spirit? When writing it does not alone. Sometimes you get way different and a song as a I'm gonNA. I'M GONNA die right in here as long as a life form. It's a you know an alien life form It's organic Actually had a dream A few weeks back while Jerry came to me in the dream and Introduced a song in this song came in and it was like it was kind of it looked kind of like a great big. Rec Room sized ethereal sheepdog and it was big and friendly and came up and stiff me and I did a little bit. Came back at me and it was. It was interactive and and and then we you know then we started playing and singing the song that we we were in it. We were in the song part of it. We were part of that functioning organism tests and the dream. Sort trailed off into whatever into wherever dreams go but That just confirmed my sis. My my notion that held for the longest time that they're a song as a life form in a coming visits us and a income through certain people for whatever reasons are S and it or whatever attractions are and when it's time for it to come it's GonNa come through. You're through someone else. Yeah coming coming to this world and has come into sniff around in visit and And and hang yes and you know those goose characters in those songs you know they come in they tell their stories and and they're they're you know they they just WanNa be heard. It's beautiful just beautiful too when you woke up. Did you remember the song Not Very well. It was a jazz ballad We were singing. We were doing a duet on it when you don't hear many of those Dalit But in this particular case you know jazz ballad do do songs often come to you in in dreams. A lot of MUIRA. That's great the good ones. Yeah what a Gift I. Sometimes I'll have someone come into dream. It's hard for me to to keep them. You know it's hard for them to hang around right. Yeah you gotta get right on and what. I've what I've found is I've sort of made a deal with my little deal with my muse. Yes were you know no matter what time of day no matter what? I'm getting up I'M GONNA. I'm GonNa you know I'm going to PICK UP MY GUITAR. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA get enough of it down so that You know otherwise. Refrigerator taught visiting. Yeah and with the way you'd get it down to record something or might it meteorite. Saw generally a phone makes it real easy these days? Yeah so you'll sing it into the phone. Yeah singing and playing into your own. How did how would set lists work in in the band? Well that's interesting though the way. The dead the grateful dead used to do it is Janna would be his to start or my turn to start and take turns back and forth. We'd take aways yeah and then While we figure out the first couple of tunes that we were GonNa do maybe I three and then would generally come up with what we're GONNA wrap the setup with says right here on paper and then Then while Jerry was singing I had all the time on earth to figure out what I wanted to do next and often as not. I'd try to coax that tune out of the when we were planning when when it was done to route that went up and then he'd be doing the same thing when I was in. And would they always come or did you? Did you have a list of things to draw from you? Just always have him enough looking around or the end I you know toward the end. It was handy to have a list. Because you're the repetoire pretty expansive and and we try to stay up on all the tunes that we've brought around so we have you know the way we did things we you know. We never got around to tune. Maybe once a week. Yes how we'd cover songs work their way into the set Sometimes they just came up. You know under a signature liquor or something like that would Oh we're planning that okay. Here goes nothing. I know that there's some covers that would work their way into work their way around often in over a long period of time. Are there any that that just didn't work? Plenty plenty of weed trial ones. Who Ethic went. We tried to Pig Pen tried zing. And this is a man's world yeah I think we actually did that twice just to make sure that we it was. That bad is in theory. That sounds like that could have been good. Yeah Yeah you know we have no control over those never till you never tell how different were the members of the band. Would you say from each other like music? Wise taste-wise well. We had pig pen. Who was very very funky. He was all about blues and not much else. And then we had phil who was Into classically classically trained and And and Sort of sort of moonlighted in the Jazz World Mickey was a Marshal Drummer. He played martial. Music was a national champion rudimentary. Snare drummer he played one of those big field drums in Hindi while marching billy's I finally figured out who billy's a major influence was and he never he. I pointed it out to him. Any E allowed as I was spot on Was There was a certain era of Ray Charles that that drummer. Yeah I am. Billy Billy captured that lilt and. I don't think he I don't think he even knew he did it. I don't he. He was thinking. Consciously doing a consciously attempting to do that. It just happened and then jury was. Jerry was all over the place you loved Hilo. But he's I think is deepest. Love was probably a string band music country Buick

Compost work Because I had the good taste and look to make amazing Literary critic when I was very young New York name a mirror years ago and he with him I was down in Argentina and Together we went to the House of Combo They were married. They were married and so I met them for the first time but of course I had already heard of them because I studied Latin American literature in college and And I was at graduate school that time so but getting to meet. These people was like so exciting. You know it's sort of like meeting Gods When you're a student you're studying. These people like absolutely amazing. Did you also meet for his? At that time. I actually met him the year before because he was brought to yell to give a lecture and evolve bone. Was there also Savino Campbell about whom we're speaking being cassavetes and all who were triumvirate of sorts? Once they married for fifty years he continued to be their dinner guest and You know he as I said. He said of her that she was clairvoyant. She didn't take many photographs. She did not like to be photographed when you see a picture of Safina or Campo. It's not unusual for hands to be crossed in front of her face and if fast if she were going to this or that party she would sing with this ugly face. Jessica Powell use started to read Cedar Fina under the direction of Jill Levine. Yes I was first introduced to Selena's work many years ago in a translation seminar that I took with Jill when I was a graduate student at UC Santa Barbara and after that class ended Jilin. I decided to collaborate on a novella which was actually the only work that Silvino Compo and her husband Blake Assad wrote together and so it was lower haight which is fantastic and we co translated it. And after that Jill and I started talking about you know Oh wouldn't it be wonderful to translate more of Selena's works and so then in Katie a? New Young came on the scene and she's completing her doctorate and her dissertation is in part on Compo Katie's Latif John worked on the translation of forgotton journey. A book of short pieces. There has been also. I don't want to confuse anyone a book of poetry from the New York review books as well as another book covering the entire spectrum of So Vena or Campos pros. I've found my own beginning point. Were these two thrilling little books. Let's here who would like to read a section of Savino Compo? Who'd like to go start with the first black? I can read a section of the Olive Green Dress. The first paragraph from journey forgotten journey. The very first book of Savino Gone Full. Let's hear the first paragraph of the Olive Green dress the olive green dress. The display windows stepped forward to greet her. The only reason she had left the House that morning was to go shopping. Miss Hilton blushed easily her skin translucent as a waxed paper like those packages who's wrappings reveal. All that's inside but beneath such transparencies where the thinnest layers of mystery behind the branching veins growing a little tree over the surface. She was ageless unjust when one noticed the deepest wrinkles on her face or her long white braids. It was possible to catch an unexpected glimpse of her youth in some childlike gesture. Other times she seemed to have the smooth skin of a young girl and light blonde hair precisely at the moment when she looked as if old age had caught up with her. The first paragraph of a very short story called the Olive Green Dress as I read. The stories seem to escape from me as I moved forward in them. There's a strange quality of presence and absence coal joint as she writes. It's quite extraordinary and this first paragraph. Because it's so zigzag you know I I saw it begins with a very odd sentence received like awkward. How could display windows stepped forward to greet you of course? That's that's very surrealist element of you. Know which was the time she was writing in but you know she she young as she old. It's like going from a woman's You know perception of herself but you were talking about how she felt about. She looked I mean. I thought this is kind of interesting example now. Above of that of of those issues and so as very twisty this is Jill Levine. Who is perhaps the Guardian Angel of these three translators bringing savina Ocampo's writing into our present
"Hello. Latinos will launch audience. This is the first time I think I've ever done an interview without shoes. The reason is because I am heavily engaging here in Honolulu and the reason why I'm here in Honolulu is because I presented in a panel on native resistance. Bud Bud enough of that. I wanted to introduce my guests. We have a small interview. And it's a person that I talked to you about before. If you remember number we had a conversation with annuloplasty they librarian Of the IR collection at the Newberry in Chicago. And we talked about anti-colonial gestures and and you've heard me say that over and over again not talk about the colonial talk about anti-colonial gestures. I actually learned that from my friend. I'm Ed Rodri- Guess I add Alaa. So I netted I met in Grad school hung ago. I think it was in the early two thousand right something like Ebola. We both have white hair now. We didn't then. Yes it's it's it's pretty sad lower bingo communist Santa Claus. Yes so we met in Kirsten buicks class on race and gender and we started talking because we both work on on images of violence which we will get into. But but let's get into the most important things. What are we just eat? We just had It is rice ace with like a hamburger patty on top and then a fried egg which wasn't runny. which was a disappointment? Right was it just me. I was disappointed. It wasn't running But it has baulked is a slightly soft fried egg and then a beef gravy with onions and mushrooms and a side salad. And what do you think of it. It was amazing. I A local for the first. I told the airport last time I was here and I wanted to and then we were back home and we made it like three times but I I make my gravy with with uh-huh Bacon Grease yet. Well yes also where we had. Our local MANCA was sort of like look like a juice bar so I I was afraid. It wasn't going to be greasy. I was afraid it wasn't going to be Bacon which was true. It wasn't but what it did have was an ample amount of salt and it did and it reminded me of. I don't know if you've had this where you grew up the first cafeteria right. Where like and my parents used to take us there after church because you didn't pay for kids so they just put stuff on our trail? Be Like you're having this. You're having this. You're having this right but I always got the Salisbury steak was mushroom gravy. That's what this was like and that's the thing about Hawaii like off of posts hosts mid twentieth century. How wuyin hybrid military fast food items type of food right? Yes because my father was born here so his dad was a marine So there are these Mexicans out at in the Pacific. His Dad's marine. I don't know what he did wrong but he got sent back to Mexico but my dad was here for twelve years of his life right so so he remembers the way that things that were rationed foods became part of the local foods. Right things like ground. Beef things like like hamburger things like spam right So we grew up with a lot of spam and we see a lot of spam here and here there's like seventeen kinds of spam. You can get there's a Jalapeno spam. There's Teriyaki Spam So yeah it it. It is really interesting to think about the way that like canned hand foods that was coming as part of the military occupation which continues Really transform local foods. And that's what I think about every time we'll get more soobee which we've gotten three times my husband we're obsessed with it but it's because we forget for example that that Eh Japanese built this town ride so they've been here as working force for one hundred years so that's why you have this weird combination. Should I had the best thing I've had so far was spam Masugi but it has eggs bacon and avocado. Yes yes yes yes yes yeah and you you you see that. That's why love local Manco and even though immunize be What some people may deem as how than-thank Hawaiian does it kind? I remember like that's the kind of cultural shifting things that I like in cuisines that are like to to have. That's why Love tex-mex food because for for some people may not seem authentic whatever the fuck that means and we talked about this over and over again but it is. Those adoptions two different casinos. That's why I love new Mexican food too and we've had entire episodes just talking about new Mexican food because we get Mexicans in New Mexico saying this is not Chile Colorado. Hashtag my dad right now. It's funny because when you when you say you know why we were here. It was part of this native resistance conference but one of The colleagues I know who who is indigenous of the upper North American area near the Canadian border. She had all all these photographs of herself doing authentic indigenous things here and it was so interesting to me because yesterday she was posting photographs of finding macadamia nuts. Like in the wild which was in the park off the resort. And she's like found like in the wild and I was late to a panel. Because I always picking Macadamia nuts. And then she she had all these pictures of her trying to open them and peel them. And whatever and then I'm talking to Manuel your husband and he's like those came with this is right. Those are not Hawaiian. Traveling with my husband is just like discontent because everything like this plantar now from. I'm here that trees from here. That is Never Amir. Any reminds you that we are in heavily colonial setting but people are so obsessed with living the Hawaiian fantasy honesty. That they forgot that yes. Yes like walking down the street with him as like why Wa wa right because you're like Oh this authentic thing and it's like it's not it's not that's so funny but anyways so let's get into your research because it's super fascinating and I think a lot of a lot of people have not heard what about this material that you've been working and I know you move forward you move on and you working on other things but I really WanNa talk about on your research on the lynchings things over Mexicans in In Texas ryden specifically in Texas a lot. But there's also plenty of cases in New Mexico and what would become Arizona Definitely California what's interesting about that project. Is it started with a complete false false premise. And and I'm really proud to say that that I started with a false premise and my false premise was There's this phenomenon that is a footnote in in Carey McWilliams North from Mexico and in this one footnote he says more more Mexicans pins were lynched in the southwest Than African Americans were lynched in the south and he gives no data. He doesn't doesn't tell you how he comes to that conclusion right. It's just this little footnote your leg. What a what a what? And so I and so I kept so I start with this false premise of like. Can I prove this number right. Because it's like it's making the the first problem problem with it is. It's making this comparison as though they're two distinct populations and they're not right Like in the eyes of the state. It's the the person that is lynched. Is the same thing right right and also you know we have a good number of African Americans Akins who were populations fleeing enslavement who were fleeing south into Mexico where slavery had been unlawful long long before the United States right
