It's the Little Things

"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost for want of a shoe. The horse was lost for want of a horse. The rider was lost for want of a writer the message was lost for want of the message the battle was lost for want of a battle, the kingdom was lost. Small things can have reverberating effects on history both good and bad. In fourteen fifty three, the great walled city of Constantinople fell it had withstood sieges for eleven hundred years. It had held off fire from the then state of the art cannons for weeks. The Byzantine said even Ford soldiers trying to tunnel under the wall autumn Turks were finally able to overrun the great city because someone left the door open. One of the many gates in the fourteen miles of wall had been left open during the night and the Ottomans flooded in. Killing Constantine the eleventh in the battle and bringing an end to the eastern Roman Empire. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. It was a freezing Christmas night in Trenton. New Jersey during the revolutionary war. The English Colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall. Commander. Of a mercenary infantry regiment of fourteen hundred has seen soldiers from Germany sat down to a good supper and an evening of entertainment. He and his men were celebrating their recent victories over George Washington's volunteer army, and of course, the Christmas holiday. Safe from the bitter cold and the pelting sleet inside a wealthy merchants home that they had commandeered. They relaxed safe in the assumption that no one in their right mind would possibly try to cross the Delaware River at night in a blinding winter storm. Someone challenged role to a game of chess, and before long he was deep in tactics and strategy. There was a knock at the door. And exhausted young. Messenger boy came in bearing a note from loyalist farmer. It's important to remember that about a third of colonists still consider themselves to be British and didn't want the revolution. Raw paid the boy little notice took the note and put it in his coat pocket without opening it. That pocketed piece of paper would cost him and the war effort nearly. Two hours earlier and ten miles away. Washington's men had begun being ferried across the icy Delaware. River. It took over ten hours to get all twenty four hundred men over to the New Jersey side. The conditions were so adverse five men froze to death. Then began the arduous march to Trenton in the dark. The plan had been to attack the town from all sides before dawn, but the troops didn't arrive until eight am. During the attack which lasted only an hour forty of the German. Henson's were killed and the remaining thousand surrendered. Colonel was mortally wounded. When his body was found the unopened note warning of Washington's crossing was still in his pocket. If role had read it, he would surely have had his gross of professional soldiers prepared. He allowed his pride and the weather to lull him into thinking his enemy was not a threat. Had he won the battle he may well have killed George Washington James Madison James Monroe John Marshall Aaron Burr and Andrew. Hamilton The. Second, most common premise in alternate history circles behind what if Germany won World War Two is what if the south one the American civil war? Two pieces of paper dropped in a farmer's field almost brought that about. Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Whose statue in the middle of my hometown of Richmond, Virginia has recently been given the historical context. It's so sorely needed. In the form of tons of. Graffiti. Issued Special Order one ninety one during the Maryland campaign before the Battle of Antietam. In the order lead divided his army, delineating the routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the units to reconvene. Adjutant Robert H Chilton penned copies of the letter endorsed them in Lee's name. Staff. Officers distributed the copies to various confederate generals. General Thomas Stonewall Jackson in turn copied the document for one of his subordinates, major general, D H Hill who was to exercise independent command as the rearguard. A Union soldier Corporal Barton W Mitchell of the twenty seven. Th Indiana volunteers found two pieces of paper bundled with three cigars as he marched across a farm in Maryland an area recently vacated by Hill and his men after they had camped there. The order provided the Union army with valuable information, concerning the army of Northern Virginia's movements and campaign plans. Upon receiving lease lost order. Major General George McClellan leading the Union army of the Potomac proclaimed. Here is a piece of paper with which if I cannot whip Bob Ely, I will be willing to go home. He immediately moved his army in hopes of foiling lease battle plans. When Lee heard a copy of special order one, ninety, one was missing he. He knew his scattered army was vulnerable and rushed to reunite his units Antietam Creek near Sharp's Berg. Lee's troops arrived tired hungry and many were sick. The Battle of Antietam, would go down as the bloodiest battle of the American civil war with casualties recorded as twenty, three, thousand dead wounded, which was usually as good as dead or unaccounted for over the course of the half day battle. That's nearly two thousand soldiers in our one every two seconds. When night fell both sides ceased fire together, their dead and wounded. The next day Lee began the painstaking job of moving his ravage troops back Virginia. Here, some scholars argue another solitary decision had far reaching consequences. Despite having the advantage. McClellan. Allowed Lee to retreat without resistance. From his point of view, he'd accomplished his mission by forcing Lee's troops from Maryland and preventing confederate win on union soil. President, Lincoln however thought McClellan missed a great opportunity to potentially end the war three years earlier than it ultimately would.

Incident: Wings AT72 at Ambon on Jul 3rd 2020, Failure of All Instruments

"A. Wings Eighteen, seventy, two or eighteen, seventy, two dash. Two, one to. At Ambon, which is in Indonesia was flying from Ambon to Babbo with forty nine passengers and three crew D my Indonesia accent. Yeah. I think you make an APP. I am was in the initial climb out of Ambon Putnam, Laura Airport's runway to just when just after becoming airborne all display units, standby instruments, communication and multifunction control display unit failed. All of it. The landing gear lever not good. No landing gear lever could not be retracted. Climbing through about two thousand feet the display units one and three partially recovered showing speed and altitude indications again, and about three thousand feet communication and remaining displaying its intermittently recovered and the landing gear retracted. They put their landing gear lever up and then finally goes. Okay. Yeah. Sure. You're up. You sure. It wasn't doing a Microsoft update or something might have been. So. I'm thinking. If this were instrument meteorological conditions. I believe we will be reading about the accident and terrible tragic crash of this flight however could easily be yeah without any insurance when you're going to do not ways up, right. Thankfully the weather was not quite as bad. I mean it wasn't perfect, but it wasn't IMC apparently. and they were able to maintain. Reference to the. Queues outside to keep the airplane flying straight and level and climbing all stuff aircraft stop the climate four thousand feet position for return to runway for about thirty minutes after departure but went around and enter to hold at seven thousand feet. The aircraft subsequently landed back on runway four, one hour fifty minutes past. Departure. In Asia Cayenne KT which I guess is there investigatory agency rated the occurrence a serious incident? Yeah. Open an investigation. There were no injuries and the aircraft sustained minor damage doesn't really say. How I can recall. Let's see. Then they go into a little bit more detailed by the way this is from the aviation. Excuse me. Aviation Herald. Let's see the weather during the situation was raining and the ground visibility was six kilometers. So you know wasn't. Great with not great. Let's see the. Starting process of the engines was normal when the aircraft taxied in lined up for runway to to. The aircraft took off and after airborne, the pilot verified the idol gate lever engaged I don't know what that is something to do with props. I guess suddenly all five display units and the integrated electronic standby instrument i. e s I went blank and the VHF radios burr off. the pilot glance to the overhead panel several lights eliminated. Consisting of the shed light on the D. C. Service utility busts, the available light on the external power push buttons. That problem they. Hit a great big generated. Along. With the we're just getting of course Pack lavatory detection engine boost. Hey we have a lavatory, we detected there. during the Situa- we just talked about that the pilot did not have flight instruments as reference for flight therefore, the pilot flew visually. about one minute. So everything came back and let's see why is it that they ended up holding for a while they run some checklist or something that the deal oh, I think he was waiting for the weather to improve. A bit before they came in for their landing. Yeah. Sensible. Relying, his attitude indicators. And other instruments. Yeah. Urinate Visual Reference Yeah. That was smart. So you know you'd think that was this the airplane that was kind of Pretty new or was that another one lows? Let's see Oh. August fourth twenty seventeen. Yeah. So it's Relatively, new airplane Not, sure. Exactly. What happened there some kind of electrical. Weirdness apparently yeah. I mean a supply problem but the thing that really concerns me as if you get a supply problem to you main instrument panels. Avis or whatever type of aircraft urine you would expect perhaps to lose some. But the one thing that should you should always bail rely on is you standby instruments they should be from a completely separate power sauce. Often. Just connected almost directly to the battery so that regardless of what else you've lost, you've got something to go on to help fly the airplane. the fact that he lost his signed by insurance as well. makes me seriously concerned about the architecture, the electrical system of of this aircraft. If, they find a full of manages to take out. So many buzzes by all buses that they also lose their same standby instruments that for me is a major concern. Yeah. I'm wondering if if that was something about the way, the electrical system was designed and manufactured or maybe. There was some kind of maintenance done to the airplane and they didn't connect all the bits and bobs correctly. I don't know I saw. The aircraft should be so capable on the ground before they get on something incorrect deep rooted of self diagnosing electrical problem If they wouldn't have got to have on, they had known that they had a major potential right room with their instruments. Sure. So this is just It happens. On a bus of had some problems in the pasta with unexpected glitches which have taken out all the display units but never have I heard of an Airbus having a problem with standby simultaneously that that is just nine national that is not supposed to happen. Ever. But did apparently in this case, and thankfully, the weather was good enough for them to maintain control their come. We had some pundits who had enough skill to bail to continue to fly the airplane the even relatively poor visibility with. Right around which meant horizon, the visual horizon would have been indistinct. They managed to interpret what was happening to the aircraft in their Themselves and not get fooled and not getting a situation where they lost control. So fantastic

Mahmudr in the Geluk and Kagy Traditions

"Maybe we'll start with. Way Your interest in Mahamoud. Way Did that how did that come about? When was that? So since by had? I probably I got interested in Mahamoud per se early in Grad school or perhaps a little bit before that might regional interest in Buddhism back in high school days early in college was mostly in San and I always expected that would be the form of Buddhism than I ended up practicing but the as says avid my then girlfriend now wife and I ended up traveling overland India in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, three into nineteen, seventy four, and then ended up at coupon monastery just outside. Katmandu where we studied where Rama Tipton yesterday in London Lumberton. And those famous co concourses which are still ongoing by merrily introductions allom Rim to the stages of the path of course. Llamas, OBA has a particular particularly in those days maybe a little. So I don't know He had a particular teaching style wary if you're at a month course, you could pretty much be sure that half the time was going to be spent in the lower rounds. So he did delight in. Those and Mama yesterday would, of course come in and remind us that we all had put a nature. So it was kind of A. Tough. Cop Nice cop routine and away. And you know he was he was a it was kind of overwhelming for me despite my interest. But as despite my having majored in religion in college and so forth. But. All the complication you know both the details of rim, how Karma works all the different realms, the scholastic arguments back and forth about beginning less mind an emptiness and so forth all of it was incredibly impressive. They were particularly impressive as practitioners as people who lived out what they had studied on what they were teaching but I I also began in in the few the few hours that were that I had hadn't disposal to to read. I think it was probably some poems by Miller wrap up where Branson book by John Blow Fouls, which just had a little bit of discussion. Mahmoud. and. The way the way I took it brightly. At times this reminds me a lot of ZAP it a bid, it short circuits all the detail, all the ritual, all the scholasticism. All those kinds of things that just tells you to realize the nature of your mind. So it appealed to me. Even that? Sort of a a hidden card. Yuba. Lurking inside this is fledgling gay look back. And I kept that in mind when. Year or so you're a half later I ended up graduate school at the University of Wisconsin, studying under shapes up SOPA. who was the first as far as I know the first Betton tenure at American University, certainly the first Tibetan guess. Who was tenured at American University and again to to study with guesses OPA both in the context of the graduate program that Wisconsin and at the deer park would a center as it's now called. Founded. In the mid seventies was too steep yourself in again are a great deal of the the complexity, the ritual, the richness, certainly of of the gaylord actual tradition and once again. The. Reading Mamo drawn decide what kind of balanced helped balance things out for me. So the number of the papers I wrote at Grad School, you know we're on the Mosit- as of India or or soccer punditocracy critiques of Mahamoud, draw various topics like that. So I, you know even in Grad school I I had this interest You know it sometimes said about Chinese practitioners. They're confusions during the day and Taoists. At Night I. Think a part of me that's was during the day and At night. Of course went when I began to discover that was that there was a whole Gaelic tradition of Mambo. I'd been vaguely aware of because it was a little translation that had come out at the library of Tibetan works in archives and. I read through that and So you know after I got Grad school sort of begun by my teaching career. I. Along with rank, of course, bring my dissertation into book form of pretty much everybody wants to do at some point are almost everybody wants to. Buy began to again sort of on the side begin to begin to investigate Gaylord Mabul dress, and so that's at least in terms of the genesis of this I. Guess That's That's how I would I would explain it. In a this dungeon have any. Teachers. Teaching. Mahmoud to you know you know during we went and saw on trump shays league. Once in Chicago he was notoriously late. He was typically drinking soccer when he was typically brilliant. So you know everything we had heard was true. And I think later in the seventies and into the eighties I began to to go occasionally to cognitive teacher but no, I did not have a regular. Teacher and I. I guess it's fair to say that I really never had a sort of regular teacher although in more recent years I've studied some weakening. European. Fortunately for us has his world had ordered in Minneapolis just. Just a few miles from where we live. So now, my my interest I mean I was interested in cognitive because if you're interested in mom will address even from the Gaylord stand going you clearly have to begin researching. Kogyo because. Even, some texts presents the. Is Fine Llamas. Book with. Alex. burs. The gala argue slash kagyu tradition of Mahamoud address. Implies that it's a kind of a sing credit tradition or a synthetic traditional might be a slightly better word So you and it's very clear that the first Panchen Lama who was one of the tutors of style on one of the truly great figures Gael history. He clearly was familiar with cargill literature and and it would seem with some Kogyo practices so. In my in the process of beginning to research, Ma Gala Mambo. Dry Inevitably had to begin reading at least a lot in In the calculator corresponded with scholars argue. Of various sorts Michael. Roy. David Jackson others. Of course the way these things work you you've you dig into you want your insulin gay look initially you dig into the cog you and then you get into the cockpit realize Oh God. All this comes from India and you've got to go back and look again at Sada. High and the other message you gotta look at the time. TRAS. Very, clearly, the textual a kind of sources for Mahmoud to discourse and behind that. Then of course, always these claims that there's a Sutra Mabul dry and so you begin digging around in sutures that may mention the word or may talk about ideas that are similar and so. I ended up going down this kind of rabbit, hole. That led me deeper and deeper back into Indian tradition and it started out as really odd. I'll do a few little translations and right any production suddenly was this Gargantuan projects that threatened to be about just about everything in. Indian. In Tibetan. Buddhism. Because in a weird way Mamo Dra, it was said, could be found everywhere in India, wants about bottles.

Well it all happened when Chris posted a screen recording of himself, playing the game heads up with his family at the end did the recording quickly flashed a shot of the phone's camera roll a blurred photo right there yet that's that's the one There was also a racy meam in there and it was a picture of his.

A Look at Bird Strike Countermeasures

STRUCK: A Lightning Protection Podcast

A Look at Bird Strike Countermeasures

"Obviously, bird strikes against you feel like this is an issue but it is right and these things especially. If. It's like a goose I mean, that's a I don't know what twelve pound object getting hit by something going for and miles per hour. Well, what what is, what is the damage like here and how do they? What is the technology keeping US safe from safe from these bird menaces it really is testing. That's what it is and designing for the regulatory requirements. So the regulatory criminal for aircraft for twenty five aircraft which are trying to transport category or. Larger business jets is a four pound bird I think is going at VC So that's a pretty fast speed. I'm electrical guy not a structural person but. Those tests are super destructive, and if you ever, you can go online and go on Youtube and see bird strike tests I've seen the other crazy it as look like they become liquid hitting these. Oh Yeah. Everything becomes at that speed is so much energy. Being dispersed in such a short span of time that biscuit the turn Jello. And it Kinda. It kinda it absorbs into the structure in which is running into, and then there's really no way. Today we actually have some competition ways to predict the amount of damage that recur, but we still do testing. So it's sort of a computational I look, and then we followed up with some validation testing. But as we have done that the last several years, we kinda get more and more. So the computational side. But? It's very easy to see aircraft that was struck by birds and the level of damage because it usually is not just one bird usually they're flying into a grouping birds. So birds hit windshields knows Rome spurts, wings, Burns, hidden vertical stabilisers, or horizontal stabilisers. burs being adjusted into engines are a huge problem because you can. On a wing, you can penetrate that leading edge and get into the thing. They got a fuel got fuel coming out right on an engine. It's going to go through that engine and you can lose or maybe maybe worn more than one bird typically but you can lose that particular engine and just like you're talking about with sully where they had birds go in and both engines in Las both engines so. It's. It's a really serious thing in if around airports that have bird probes and it tends to be at least in our part of the World Canadian geese that migrate want to hang out at the end of the runway. You'll see things like these noise canons, propane cannons at fire off once a minute to encourage the burs lands somewhere else because at a Canadian geese is bigger than a four. Pampered. Right So if you hit something that's obviously hopefully, you're catching it closer to the crown where you're going to get slower speed. So the energy last but the amount of damage that can occur bird impact is substantial substantial to the point where now we do a lot of testing to make sure that the bird can't bring down an airplane but still in the sully situation burs going both engine just really not much you're gonna be able to do their. The FAA puts up notices about where birds are. Philadelphia had a problem for a while. So yeah, it's it's really really serious, but it happens pretty often a lot more. It happens more often than lightning strikes in my opinion early, the damage more visible the lightning strikes because it is a debt left somewhere. On, the aircraft when shield knows radio. All over all over well so these engines are pulling in so much air and creating so much thrust. Create like vortex where a is more likely to go into the engineer or not really so much everything's happening. So fast I, mean you can kind of suck it in if it's if it's not directly in that lie in that line it can definitely could pull it in just grab. Yeah. It can kind of graphics. They do have some Massar but it's the engines pulling so much air sucking so much Erin to it it's it's like a vacuum just going to say anything it's around it into it So the engine manufacturers, Ge's Pratt and Whitney's the. Royce look at that as part of the one of their certification task is to validate what has a bird. Goes to the engine because what you don't. WanNa do is. Start loosening the heavy rotating parts of the rotors. Rhoda per situation. So not knowing you lose a bird, but then he got this flying grenade of an engine blowing holes in the wing and the fuselage and tail, and all this other stuff causes other problems. So it's it's a really serious certification thing but when we don't think about that much. I don't think of all the years I don't think about an aircraft has actually struck a bird I've seen damage from it but close but I don't think I've been an airplanes actually struck a bird. Have you ever been an airplane? That's? Not. What it now now makes me very nervous. So. Limited have my eye out for these birds album. I worry about it with a Canadian geese are or this large flocks in occasionally see it editor ports as you drive into an airport like There's a large flock of whatever geese hanging out down here. That probably smarter hope not taking off in that direction today.

Starting Zocdoc with Oliver Kharraz

"Oliver Karaz was born and raised in Germany mostly in rural parts of the country his mother was German and his father was from Iran in came from a long line of doctors. For me, it really starts in some ways with my dad and. The timing rapidly had every reason to become a social activist and and so he came to Germany from the Middle East when he was very young around twenty with no money in his pocket no language skills. And you personally then worked on of odd jobs, but he eventually became a psychiatrist but what has really shaped me much more than being born in Berlin is. Social. Active. Isn't that I that I saw him live and that he really made our family mattress we always talked about talent responsibility and the need to use. Whatever telling behind to help those. Around us that we can make a difference. Given that your father was Iranian and your mother was was sort of. German. An Uber even though you were born in Germany, did you feel did you feel as Germany everybody else? So I didn't have a second identity. We only used spoke German at home and yet. As you say I was also a not always fully accepted. So if I give you an example, my school twelve hundred students and you could pick out to the didn't look like everyone else and I was one of them right and even an enlightened country like Germany. That is notable. So I had what I call a visual accent would people would see me on the street and they would ask me how to speak German. So well and But they also school the skipped my name when reading out scores because they weren't sure how to pronounce my last name and opportunities taken away and even at was physically threatened so i. I think that really shaping in many ways because I realized. Very early that in order to be as successful as everyone around me I would have to be dramatically better in really work much much harder than anyone else and so that used to be strong work ethic in me. For the record Oliver is somewhat down playing his work ethic. Because just out of high school, he actually started his first successful company. It was the early clunky days of the Internet, and he designed a way to help people send emails more easily and he wound up selling that business not for a ton of money, but enough to get him through medical school. But. After practicing medicine for a couple years Oliver realized he couldn't stop thinking about that first business he'd started and how he wanted to start another. So he quit his job in medicine and consulting job with Mackenzie and eventually moved to New York. That was my goal was actually to start another company that that's A. Healthcare, but I I'd also realized at the time that I sold my first company and far too cheaply in that I should learn more about business I and at McKinsey God exposure to balance sheets and panels and hit a lot of very practical experience and what it means to manage business. And I think they fondly of my time at McKinsey was one of my better decisions. McKinsey GonNa Mackenzie is a little bit like going to business school. A lot of people at McKinsey have come from business, schools. In that. Many people go to business school thinking they will find a co-founder. Did you were you actively looking around at your colleagues to think maybe I can do something with him or her you know maybe that person. Absolutely and were you just thinking about different business ideas all the time? Well, it is actually very hard to find good ideas and my definition of a good idea was that it needed to have a great mission I. wanted to make sure that we actually do something good in that. We stayed true to sort of talent breaks responsibility, but also wanted to be a large market and to have a great motor rounded and also I wanted to be based on contrarian inside. Because I thought that all of the best companies have that at its core. While she wanted mission, you wanted a company that could kind of dominate its field by building a motor around it, but was also contrary and that's that's that's those are some interesting. Criteria. And that's why I screen for several years rejected pretty much every idea that that I came across And meanwhile. While you're going through all that I guess you meet this guy Cyrus Masumi. WHO's another McKenzie consultant and and just you just. Become friends like he's like somebody like in and you guys start hanging out. While we got put on study together that required us to travel globally and you've ever done that it meant frost were sixteen eighteen hour days together for three four, five months on end and we really. Got To become great partners in that and and what we realized that we had some. Very complementary skills. Cyrus is one of the most charismatic and gregarious individuals. You'd ever meet his very passionate. He could be more forceful, which sometimes was needed to be effective with clients. And you've talked to me now for a little bit as you can probably tell. More dispassionate and logical and more measuring. German? More, German in many ways, right. also was effective with clients by by. and Cyrus is American right? He's American this but that That close listened and how we work together that really started friendship and we stayed close for the study and be caught up over lunch pretty regularly denounce different business ideas off one another and. I think we connected because we had similar interests because. On. Some levels We were equally passionate about what we're doing higher says, passion was more visible to others than mine but we. Were close enough together that we both accepted. The other as. individual that that we could learn a lot from. Was it was it clear pretty soon after you start hanging out, Sarah's that this was the guy because you were. You're on the lookout for a partner. They I think it was was absolutely an option I know reality is that. With. Both founded companies before Mckinsey and we both knew that we wanna do it again and as I. was always great about being. Very honest. Rather than just nice and and I value that a lot. Yeah. All, right. So So this guy, Cyrus Super Charismatic, really smart clearly, the two of you start to to work together. And what what kind of business ideas are are you coming up with? While we kind of fell in love with a new idea that came about a one of these launches were Cyrus. Told me about how he recently ruptured his eardrum by flying with a cold and then found it very difficult to actually find a doctor and he had asked for recommendations and called down his insurance directory listing started with the as. Doctors weren't accepting new patients some no longer accepted two centurions one provider Pasta Way and so he said, well, why does it take four days to the doctor when I'm in pain right? And why can't this much easier? And we. Both very quickly. realized the potential of this idea from. Working at project be new helps us the for actually spending millions of dollars for marketing to grow their patient base because they had wasted inventory, right they had something that I like to call hidden supply, which is these last minute cancellations no-shows reschedules. That the that go to waste, and then on the other, there are the patients who had a hard time accessing this. You thought it immediately clicked with these my God. Yes. Doctor's appointments connect patients to doctors. Yeah. Well, look if you go through the forfeiture that I had read, it's a great mission right? We're making one of the most personal needs more accessible for for patients we can help patients to get in fast we can help the doctors become more efficient. We can make the entire health care system more cost effective people out of the emergency room things like that, and it's a marketplace. So there is a strong mode and clearly anything in healthcare is a large market and I think the contrary and inside that we had. was. The fact that. Most people thought it's normal that people have to wait twenty four days to a doctor because there's a doctor shortage in read our inside was really no doctors have asthma debate ability because of these last minute cancellations, no-shows reschedules and so I felt very about this idea. So. So you member like how long between the time that the you had that first conversation To the time were both you said, let's start this business was like monster or weeks or days. was was weeks. We what we what we started doing is actually. Mocking up the side in how imagine back then in powerpoint pointing just the wire. Website. Yeah. Wire frame. Exactly. We would. We'd go into starbucks and we'll chat up strangers and say, Hey, here's a five dollar gift card. Give me your thoughts. Sorry I'm GonNa. Go back. You just go to people in starbucks Gift Card and say, can you give me your thoughts? Random Person? The absolutely that's that was sort of our market testing. They wouldn't. They would be like excuse me this is a little weird. You're my space. Might also happen from time to time but you know there's lots of people on starbucks is very in German of you. That's debris because usually he would be to report tentative about doing that. Well, you know I think there was a lot less rejection than you think people actually quite open I. Suggest you try this out but if you If you're unthreatening in Luke harmless as we probably dead and then they'll be pretty open. You went up to and starbucks and you'd say, Hey, we're thinking about a company here. Can you just look at his powerpoint give you five dollars Gift Card and what was in the powerpoint, the popcorn and was just what we thought. This website would look like and we would ask them is the set service that resonates with you would you use it and and we got an incredibly valuable feedback here and really set us in many ways on the on the right track right? So and what pointed to the two of you decide let's quit McKinsey. Let's. Let's pursue this. Probably a month or two after we initially discussed idea did anybody say you were crazy for quitting? Everyone. Everyone told us. Crazy and got a lot of negative feedback on the idea to write people would say this is Bloomberg out I would never pick my doctor on the internet or I already have a doctor or you know doctors wouldn't accept patients that that are looking on the Internet of all kinds of protections that people had when they were thinking about their own situation by. When when you talk to people and starbucks, they actually thought about it much more positively. So we were encouraged enough to say, well, this is going to work as long as we get out of our circle and don't ask McKinsey consultants doctors. The responsible be better. All right. So you are in your thirties at this point. And presumably were making pretty good cash at McKinsey because you were probably you'd know expenses you're on the road all the time so. When you quit, I'm assuming you had some money to launch the business and probably live off for a while. Yeah. So I very deliberately had never raised my living standard to the money that the paying McKinsey and I had saved every dime so that I could. No be in a position where can fund this embraced can afford not to take a salary for a couple of years. Wow. So so a couple of hundred thousand and you saved. You know. Maybe. I'm to Germany to discuss personal finances but. I had. Built this. Radio, you can tell the. Story Yeah I I had I had enough money to live off for for several years but I also Saturday night both finance the company early out of our own savings so that clearly diminish We had leftover after that. So now, you both decided to quit. and. You have some technical expertise because you had. You had done some coding but this is next level stuff. Were you able to be that technology founder and Cyrus was going to be the the sort of the business founder? Absolutely not as I add coated but at that point, I had not touched a computer for a long time We knew we need to have a technical co founder and so Sarah's knew a guy named Nick Guanzhou from the time together, trophy software, and this is another company that they would both worked at the that's the company that they're both previously worked together and Nick just brought a totally different perspective and really educated Addison me on a lot of things and and he was really the one who understood a building a seamless experience for the consumer and ends May. Zach Docs. Early Genius, did you did you have the name dock from the beginning? Not, not initially we we went to several phases on on what the right name could be for for while we wanted to have a descriptive name. So we looked at physicians, dot Com Doctors Dot Com, and we actually tracked down the owners of one of these domains and they wanted several million dollars for the domain name. And and we were finding the company ourselves. So that was out of the question. So then we just sat in a room and we brainstorm a list of fifty or one hundred names, and then started eliminating names until we arrived at Dr. What does it mean? or it doesn't mean anything which was the WTO bit we could. There were zero search results. Okay. There's no meaning behind his ACH. There's no meaning behind and and in hindsight it was precisely the right thing to do because it really was a blank slate for us to fill with with meaning and really build a brand around. Zero such as October we started. It address nate the right lake once you know that it takes more than three weeks from picking up the phone and dialing for doctors till you actually see someone you realize Oh, this really not much else that we have to wait so long for to get. And this is more important than most of these other things you already have. Fantastic access View Magin. If air travel way that healthcare workers that wouldn't be an expedia that wouldn't even be Delta Dot Com that would be individual phone numbers for every plane. Imagine. If that happened, you know a half the planes would fly empty it would be a massive pain and that was actually the state of health care before sock. Is Amazing that that the nothing like this was out there in two thousand seven. I look at I. Think. In many ways you couldn't build it a much earlier. In the early days. When we went out there, we were the ones installing Internet of the doctor's offices. We. They they were a many times just migrating from a paper books to scheduling systems. We were at the cusp of digitisation for healthcare. We were just lucky in our timing to get this right in and start offering the service when that also happened. All right. So you decide to pursue Zach dock and it's the three of you. I'm assuming really just at the beginning and were you working out of out of one of your apartments? Did you guys rent space? No, we worked out of respect for. Many. Times we came to make yet the nicest apartment and and we could bring breakfast Burrito and bake him up and you know the the reality is that we originally had a pretty ambitious launch plan right so we got together around July. We wanted to launch by December of two, thousand seven. Something interesting happened were nick send an email suggesting to look at what was then called techcrunch forty. Take is is now a household name but the draw for us back then was there was a fifty thousand dollar prize now it's called tech crunch disrupt think. So it's a major a startup competition. It's a startup competition and we were the first class of this was much less known be budgeted two hours to fill in the application in really which will send it off. He didn't think about it anymore that there was an early July and early August we've heard that we had been accepted, but there was a complication we'd have to be ready by September eighteenth or. That was three months sooner than we had originally planned to launch. So you'd have a live website by September that is right that is right with doctors with doctors, right So we actually debated for a few hours whether we should even tried to go for that but we ultimately said, yes, we can get the website working and we wanted to have enough doctors just a bars wouldn't look pathetic. Brayden. Coded Night Neither Day and nick really busted his but he did the patient facing side of the website and that was the programs. What was potentially even harder because we're tried to launch a marketplace was to actually get the initial supply on there and remember the website wasn't there yet so. Tires ended up going door to door for doctors offices. Excuse telling them a powerpoint page, and this is really a testament to cyrus sheer willing determination if you think about what it means to really start a company early on, there's nothing to show right you may be a powerpoint but there's no website there's no patience. There's no other doctors no social proof and it has to run on passion and very clear that that is Cyrus superpower. He just went to random doctors offices or he had like a list of doctors offices and he started kind of walking block by block. Well, there's a lot of walking involved a we launched in Manhattan so you can literally go down the street and you see. The signs and you walk in. And he was basically saying look, it's a way to connect you to patients. How was how many by the way? What was your objective? How many doctors do you need to sign up to have this website look okay by September Between six and ten was our goal. Okay. So just doable it is a was extremely hard really. Is telling doctors is one of the hardest things to do why were they saying? Well, first of all, it is baby very hard to even speak to a doctor they are being shielded. Their time is very valuable. Office managers are trained not to let anyone talk to them to protect the doctor from people walking in selling them stuff shirt them. Secondly, they many didn't want to give up control over their calendar which has to write. We ask them to post times that a patient could book into it and it was just a far fetched idea for many of them the patients would actually do this. So he got a lot of knows he got a lot of knows. He'd go there and he just simply not leave until he got a chance to speak to the doctor and a few times. It was even escorted out by security. I really think one in a million could have put this off. I mean was he going to particular kinds of doctors or was he generally focused on an Internet general? Practitioners Ob sobe began with dentists Okay. Because our thinking was that. People go to dentists most often, and we wanted to make sure that we have an offering that is relevant for patients as often as possible. I. Got you so so eventually unassuming, you do get what six to ten or how many did you get by September of two thousand seven Eight. In the meantime, you inequity doing the back end stuff you were doing the coding and building the website does right and as you were building it. How did it look? So. The bit that Nick Build looked awesome for the time I think. It was impressive. We were. Very. Satisfied that we had a scroll bar that we had a map that we had back then already the insurance selector and a lot of feature that. Weren't to be found really anywhere else. All right. So September two, thousand, seven, you are ready to reveal. This service at. Tech. Crunch. And Doth Review present or did did Cyrus kind of wishy the spokesperson? Cyrus. I presented Nick stayed behind in New York to make sure that the less the website was actually up and running This is in San Francisco that you went to the we flew out to San Francisco and So we lost sock talk in front of Eight, nine, hundred people. A lot of them were journalists when the judges opened up with feedback guy covers ocoee who we newnan in valued. As embezzles forever apple he came out to said he he didn't get it. He would never use this in front of everyone right and. His direct load something like honestly Oh, it just never occurred to me to go to any doctor that's really burned in in my brain and what was worse is that he seemed to be right we didn't get a single booking. We were hoping that this PR would get us out of our initial batch of users, right because your other. So many tech journalists there. So you know the publicity may be would would would lead to bookings and that was the hope but. It actually took three days before regard our first legitimate a patient, and and in the entire first month, we only got five bookings. You come back from San Francisco and. You know you had Guy Kawasaki. Say I don't I would never use this service? I'm sure he feels differently today but man maybe then Ezio said that but did did you come back feeling like like dejected like losers or or were you excited like how did you feel coming back? While you know I think we obviously hoping we would eventually get more bookings and In the beginning you probably refreshed. The Bookings Report Hundred Times a day by as we were thinking through what we realized. It was really a typical two sided marketplace challenge It's just a classic chicken and egg problem. You need the supply to get the demand and you need the demand to entice them supply and for dark was even trickier. Right when you think about it, healthcare is hyper local. Very complicated. So you have to match. Supply and demand on a Zip code specialty level, and then we have thousands of insurances take. Until we realized that our odds of actually finding a patient that wanted. An offer there. Quite low, and so the best path forward was to methodically build up supply, and so we just kept going put up a huge map of Manhattan on the wall, and then a sleep put little flags on of where the doctor's brother we're on the website in which insurance is accepted and we just we knew the perseverance. Is the name of the game. Back in just a moment how oliver and Cyrus Begin to drum up interest in stock and how they even start to raise some money at figure out how to dress differently, stay with us guy rows and you're listening to how I built this from NPR.

Last, please go to Guira DOT COM or how I built this dot. com. Hey welcome back to how I built this from NPR Cairo's. So it's two, thousand, seven and Oliver. Cyrus. Nick are basically powering through with Zach dock going door to door trying to convince doctors. It's a valuable service and the thing about doctors even though they're really smart and capable and we depend on them. A lot of their offices especially back in two, thousand, seven or sort of technologically in the Stone Age. There was incredibly complicated to sink the doctors calendars with ours. Because none of the software was actually made to sink. Were even in the places where we had syncs up and running, we would frequently get. Feedback while the punishment didn't happen because the doctor wasn't available and we really couldn't figure out why this was the case because when we did screen chairs with the office to their calendar and and our calendar, it was identical right and couldn't figure out why that's happening. So I decided to sit next to the office manager I went there and got to know him and his family photos of his dog. I fixed the printer taught a better strategies to play minesweeper still couldn't figure it out. Until one day, the doctor would come out and she'd say, Hey David I'm out next Friday. And then what does David do does he go into the calendar and block out next Friday or does he take a post? It note On a doctor out next Friday and sticks this too is monitor. In the real world. These post it notes, of course happen and but once you know that Matthew Friend, you can start filtering this out and that's one example they were literally a thousand point, one percent solutions that we had to figure out to make this work. Wow. That sounds I'm getting exhausted. Just hearing about that because this is like even like Google calendars, right? Yeah. Yeah. That was that was early days and what we were extremely focused around were making show the experience was fantastic. If something went wrong, we fix it. Right. So I was our customer service I personally would call the doctor and and confirmed the appointment was all said if it wasn't I, personally contact the patient to let them know and then I would offer them. Amazon Gift Card alongside with an apology those actually one case where it didn't catch a patient in time. and. The were in the subway to the doctor, and so I raised them to the doctor's office and picked up a bouquet of flowers on the way there and met them in person to apologize. And that was really a turning point burs. The service has to work and we need to be have this patients I attitude in in terms of how it works completely ingrained in the company. All right. So you clearly need to kind of grow this Were you offering this service doctors for free at the time? Initially. We for free by we eventually started charging fifty dollars per month. But Sam doctor you come into my office and you say, Hey, if you pay me I can bring you more customers. I would be skeptical I would've said to you you who whose, who even knows about you. You'RE GONNA you're asking me to pay you money for Phantom bookings for maybe no customers I mean did some of the doctors say Many. The US summarize our sales challenge. Right? It was very hard because even if you wanted to, we couldn't easily share how many patients their competitors are down the road God like that was something that was confidential. All right. So you are you got this chicken and egg problem. Not, enough people signing up and he gets skeptical doctors but you know that the service could really benefit the doctors, but you also need them to pay for because otherwise you know but business. Meantime at a certain point I'm assuming you guys start to think we'd better go out and look for money if we're going to really make this thing work. Yeah. Yeah. That that happened in the spring of two, thousand, eight we decided we raise series. And we we make the rounds we get in front of a number of the big name, BC New York the also go to Sandhill road in impel. Toho Santo Road we leads and road initially were very successful at all we got Polite knows. and. Ray No feedback control someone took us as I told us you know what the idea seems. Good. But you're consultants I'd and the perspective of its consultants can't get anything done and what realized is that even though we had both founded companies before our Mackenzie Pedigree in our keys and button down shirts, they were really hurting us, and so we wait rank Khakis and button down shirts. It sounds crazy. Were they pleaded pants or were they at least nine pleaded please. Yeah Yeah. Yeah we after hearing that feedback We very quickly just went to the next gap and bought jeans and t-shirts and from that on the combos with VC's when but a lot better. So you went from McKinsey consultant look to this are the tech casual uniform of jeans and t-shirts that that's exactly right and we introduced ourselves not as NBA's and McKinsey Consultants but we introduce ourselves previous entrepreneurs that are starting their next company. was was anyone biting? Were there people who were like? Yeah there's a great idea I'm in. So interesting enough we had raised some money from. Friends and colleagues, and many of those they invested in US business plan unseen just based on the fact that we. Were giving up our careers at McKinsey to pursue talks. So that felt really a great. and. As we started changing how we appeared in how we introduced ourselves to venture capitalists L., we started to get offers and so in August of two thousand eight, we ended up raising five million from KHOSLA ventures expeditions mark. Wow Mark Banya Jeff bezos, and Venus is. All their. Funds are in which sounds like a lot before you WanNa do it's actually. Kinda limited because you still it seems to me in two thousand eight even though you have five million dollars a lot of money you still have this problem which is you've gotta get. Customers, and then to get customers, you need lots of doctors had lots of options but to get doctors, you need lots of customers booking through the site to you do that precisely D- These five million dollars per lily earmarked for making New, York, work, right, Miguel, I market work but. immediately after raising the money the financial crisis hit. And You may remember there was rest in peace a memo that went around about startups, right? Yes. About start ups, never being able to raise money arrested in peace good times. So we got this job is to make the money stretch in. We probably learn not during this time This was really our first go round making hard choices and what I want to be frugal and not to do things we can't afford and We learned to not let money replace critical, thinking and creativity. But now we continued to grind away at New York and at some point felt while if you want to get. To the next level we have to prove. Dr Isn't just a New York City phenomenon. Right? We had to prove that it would work in a second city But at that point, we didn't have the money to do this anymore, and by the way you're still your approach was still the same. It was door to door. That's right door to door and how how you building awareness about the about the fact Zach existed with customers with potential customers. So we it was day very difficult to get someone. To the website. Yeah but when they did. They loved it because it was such a step change from how healthcare used to work for him. Right they used to have to pick up the phone and wait on hold and then plays scheduling. tetris. With the office manager, can you do Wednesday morning about Thursday noon? Friday afternoon, and now they could do the same thing in a minute and have complete overview about the ability patients loved it and they told their friends. So we we started to get word of mouth. Going, and so we saw New York really taking up and we felt like, okay, this does this go into work in New York. At a minimum rate, but we also realized that it took us a fair bit of time. And money to get it going. In New, York and do we couldn't with the money we had left from the five million easily expanded into a new city at the same time. Raising money was going to be difficult because the next generation of investors wanted to see that it works and other cities as Walter. So we were a little bit in this catch twenty, two we ended up. Applying to. Force boost Your Business Competition Four. Forbes has his competition as sell to where they give away money right to they were promising a hundred thousand dollar prize. And at this time. We won. And Yeah what did is they gave us one of these large publishers. Clearinghouse is sex and very useful actually used to cover a hole in one in our only conference room. There was a hole in the wall and we covered it with that. At, this point you are, you are working out of an office, not not an apartment at this point we were working out of A. Shared Office space we work. Yeah. So they had given us publisher clearing house is is check but they fail to give us the small check for three months and we were getting really nervous, but it would still get it but. But ultimately, we got that one hundred thousand dollars and that's what we used to launch and our second market in DC in Washington DC and would did it require you guys to move down there or were you did you hire because I'm assuming you had to? A lot of your early capital was going into sales. Business Development hiring sales reps, is that right? Right, we had a couple of sales reps at the time. A. Very first employee ever was a sales rep is still with the company today and He was great. He figured out how to. Really charm his way. To the doctor. So there were no more security guards escorting anyone out. When did you? I'm assuming that even in two, thousand, nine, two, thousand, ten, and beyond we're not yet profitable. Far From It? Yeah. Far from it right because it's a capital intensive business. Yes. We obviously invested heavily in customer service wanted patients to have a great experience. And we had a quite sizable engineering team because that was actually a major engineering effort. So what started to happen when did you start to kind of see? A real turning point. Yeah. So we we we had launched New, York successfully with. Years. Of hardwork, we've gotten it off the ground is transported that to DC at work well, in DC, and now he said, well, why are we not in more cities and so we actually we raised serious be with fouled respond and We used to expand off the East Coast Francisco then Chicago and we just got better better at it. So we then ended up raising serious and two thousand eleven from Goldman NTSC, and we primarily use this to grow our sales team and sign up more more doctors in from two thousand eleven till two thousand, thirteen, we launched roughly thirty new cities I read that by by two thousand, fourteen would covered. Like forty percent of markets in the US, which is huge I mean that's right I mean that's a huge number of cities. And in that year evaluation. Of tzakda. Past Billion Dollars I mean that's That's pretty remarkable i. mean you were kind of on this like really rapid trajectory and you a pretty straightforward model right and you were charging doctors a flat fee every year and then. They could take all the bookings they wanted and I think that by that point like by two thousand, fourteen knew it was not cheap. It was expensive viewed really raised the price it was like three thousand dollars a year, right? Something like that. Yes recharged Dr Three thousand dollars a year and and there was a flat fee. No matter. How many bookings Actually facilitated for them and and the reality was for some doctors that got a lot of bookings that was a great deal. Yeah. But but there were also doctors that God a lot fewer bookings and for them that fixed cost was actually too expensive and some of them were starting to leave the service, and so we got into a situation that required us to invest a lot to stay where we are and then invest even more to continually grow our overall provider base, which means we had to build out a massive sales team to always sign up more doctors right and. Some point during this time L. Nick actually ran an analysis showed that it would take several years if ever fries to make our money back on on many of the doctors we signed up because you would have to sign up. X number of hundreds of thousands of doctors paying that amount every year. To make your money back to to make sort of our the cost of the sales team back. Wow and L. it. This was pure that would make us dependent on external capital for our very long time, and now it's a clearly there are many companies that have taken. Grow fast at all costs approach. And They Held onto this forty extended period of time by L., it clearly puts talking to a dependency to. Investors in their mind says, yeah. So. Meantime. You know I I from what I understand. There's disagreements I mean there there are you know the leadership team including Cyrus he he's I. Think he's he's sort of his position as the flat fee model is actually the best way to go is that a fair assessment of of his position? Yeah. I think that's right. I. Mean there were two fundamentally divergent ways held the business could go forward right. One way was to continue to work on optimizing the unit economics of our subscription model and the other way was to think about how to make it more transformative leap and then find a new more profitable. And more sustainable model and. Their. Look I can certainly understand The reluctance and taking this leap if companies rechange their underlying business model once they have a certain scale and then live to tell about it, right. We know the names of the companies that have done this net flicks, but from DVD's to streaming adobe. From box software to the cloud, but there's not a lot of companies that do that. and. Needed to make a choice which which direction I wanted to go. And and I should say over that. Became intensely personal for you because hugh and Cyrus really disagreed on on on the direction of the company should take. Steps down he he left the company and you moved into the role of CEO. Those right and what ask you about this neo. Beauty's in the flies of this show is its simplicity and we talked to one person or sometimes too. It's a single narrative, and so we don't have cyrus with us to tell us what happened but I wanna ask you about this time because. This was your co founder. This was your partner This is your friend and he was leaving the company. How did you feel at that time? I all I can say was a very hard and very emotional period for everyone involved and It was certainly a departure But how was through that given these two divergent choices you you couldn't. note, both of us could be useful to talk and. I have to imagine that for for period. China. was sort of the friendship. Look been we were very close we. Were not only friends we had worked for eight years believe together fourteen hours a day, and we probably talked more to each other than to anyone else in our lives but you know. Still touch from time to time and. I think he's joining us on from sideline. He still at prison million owner of the company Yeah, he's still. Here's the thing I mean we've we've told stories about breakups we've had we've had episodes were there were married couples who split divorced but continued the business e O products. Susan Griffin Black and an her husband Brad They continued the business stacy's pita chips continue the business after the divorce sold it for a quarter billion dollars. You guys were worth value to one point eight billion dollars at this point. was was ever party that just thought you know, God look at what we're doing on the core we're going and. I mean did you in service it down and say you know this thing is just growing and? Let's just figure this out. I think the challenge is that it's not as if there was an article way to decide what the right path forward is. As long as investors wanted to give us money growing all costs was yeah. Fine Strategy. The question was just how dependent you wanted to be on the continued goodwill of investors. It sounds like you were tired of going out raising money. You didn't want to do that anymore. Oh, not at all but I think you want to raise money from a position where you know what your turn to is and and. It wasn't clear that the business model would work in in a way that that we could just flip a switch and be profitable. Yeah. So. That was a tough year for you. Two, thousand fifteen. There was an article in business I think business insider, and it was about the sales team. It's October that year and it was. It was some allegations that you know Pete member sales team using adderall even cocaine they were under immense pressure. They were working all the time when you saw that article. And I'm not saying you even aware of any of this. You may not even aware of it but I. have to think that that article really alarmed you and and maybe even embarrassed you. Look A. There were a number of articles in two thousand fourteen fifteen. Didn't absolutely get everything, right but Budweiser I can say is that At. The time doctor had their sales team and we're. Getting very quickly and Your maybe maybe. Too focused on. L. Hitting targets and. Not. Focus enough on creating a strong culture the I hear these stories from six years ago from from time to time and from from now from candidates and and really every time. This happens like a Gut Punch. Because, this we know we're completely different company now. On on so many levels, but clearly, you saw that in new that you had to change something. While yes, I look I l there's a there's a couple of things about this. Right? We are a technology company, but we had said ourselves up too much about. Instead of writing wins and really too little about being adaptable and darning and and building the trust required to try things that now pet the risk of failure. and. So one of the first things I did is to change core values. You know to emphasize those behaviors each one of our values adaptable, not comfortable and other one is progress before perfection learners before masters right and. We only kept really one DIA CONSTANT DEL patients I. Personally that. That was more of the culture that I thought was right for Doc to succeed on many dimensions. So, you take over the company it's got high valuation, but you're still not making money and you know that you've gotta change the underlying business model you're never gonNA make money. And from what I understand this is the beginning of what you have internally described as the second founding of the company. That is right. That is right and that basically happens in in two thousand, eighteen you you launch this new business model where instead of the the dollar membership fee. Basically, you would charge doctors a lot less like two hundred or three hundred bucks, but then every booking you, you would take a cut from that booking. So like a travel agency. A little bit charge for new patient booking. So the existing patients to practice we made free but yes, there was the fundamental idea and. It sounds like such an obvious thing to do but but here's the problem with it and why why are we thought it was incredibly risky to try this. Our best customers that had been on for a long time. They got lots of pockets right and if we start charging them per bookings, their prices go up very significantly in some cases ten times more and that seemed. Competing, insane to us. In. Particular because when we talked to other companies that were at gone through similar changes and even pricing experts, they're number one advisor was make sure whatever you do never charged your best customers more and frost would be precisely. The opposite. In the thing that was counter-balancing this in our mind was well, maybe we'd be able to bring on a lot more doctors because the barrier to entry is now much lower that was there was the back and forth in the team to figure out whether that's the path we want to want to go. So, this is still a risky strategy because you're depending really on new bookings because the two hundred dollar annual fees dramatically lower and I have to imagine in year one, you actually saw drop in your revenue in the year one of of this curve. Second founding. Right. Well, it's from a risk profile worth at that. Right the warriors that you lose all your best customers in with it, all the bookings day used to be getting. and. So we needed to be ready for a very significant drop in bookings and revenue and the second Challenge was here that. The beauty of this approach modest and we got all this money upfront right and Sharon. Now to bond, we're getting paid after the booking with with a thirty day payment periods, we had a huge working capital requirement to make that happen. So did you see a drop and revenue in two thousand eighteen when you rolled this out? No we didn't because we actually didn't see the doctors leave the way that we hit on -ticipant did in fact, you know while we had very much worried that they would be upset and some of them certainly were upset. We were providing so much value to them that. You know what? What took you. So long I knew as getting a great deal all along. So that worked really well, and we had piloted in Georgia initially in April. Two thousand eighteen and then that had worked. So we we then all allowed in Colorado a few weeks later that work to, and from there we went to Washington state and again, very positive results and after these three days. Okay Great. We know this works does it out in our largest most important market? Let's go to New York and that and terribly horribly wrong. They the doctors in New York. Not only were so pissed off they actually I read. mounted a change dot org. Petition I. Don't know what to to to end this practice or something. They were really mad. They were really really mad and I guess you guys responded you said, are we won't we won't roll this out in New York for a while. Yeah look in New York. We. Facilitate Roughly, one in five new patient doctor relationship in the entire city on dock and so. The economic impact for the providers in. was much greater than for the providers in Georgia Colorado Washington. So yes, to give you one example, there's a dermatologist and so and he paid under the ultimate model ten doctor say paid thirty thousand dollars and under the new pricing model, his cost was going to go up from thirty thousand dollars to roughly three hundred, forty, thousand dollars. Wow. So what was your response to that? I? Mean it seems like a pretty reasonable. Concern. Yeah. So look after the conversation with the Dermatologists I. Actually. Put down the phone and I thought you know what? He's right. And so I pause and we regrouped and. We did a couple. Of things during this time, like the first one is we just went on a listening tour. You know we talked to provide their feedback and we just adjusted our this plan to give providers a much longer grace period to decide whether the wants to addition to the new model or not, and then. So then we read on New York six months later and and when dramatically better. So the strategy works and you see results from the strategy pretty quickly like within a year. Within a year, we had we finally at some incredible momentum was really going better than we had expected in our wildest dreams. Our existing client went down to essentially zero. I mean people still retire and and move jobs by no one really left the service and we were adding more and more providers because the barrier to entry was low and So in two thousand, nineteen we began growing profitably. It sounds like two thousand and nineteen was really the banner year. Two thousand nine hundred was a was a fantastic year and honestly we had so much momentum coming into twenty twenty and feel like, Hey, we worked really hard for three years and profitable and now the sky was the limit until. Tells Sam until March of two thousand twenty. Two Marjo twenty twenty and that's. That's really maybe the third founding DOC right? Well, I want to ask you about March twenty twenty because. Your Business is based on people booking with doctors and going to the doctor I have to imagine your revenues must have plummeted like every other industry like I mean doctors offices are still in most of the country. Slow or are trickle of patients coming in. With the lockdown started happening we saw impersonal bookings declining anywhere between fifty to ninety percent by the end of March I'm not surprised and lot of that buys I was getting was to. Lay off people and make sure that we hunker down to weather the storm but I saw an opportunity to build windmills, right so I thought well, we need to be there for our patients. We should be expanding into telehealth and I need every team member to help me do that and so we. Really went all important and supporting video visits and I'll probably June eighteen began redesigning the tire marketplace support virtual care, and so we actually released. Doctor Video Service and we made this available to. Any. Physician whether they are on soccer. for free. And by the way head, you plan to do this. How long would would I mean I'm imagining if you said in in February district I really want to focus on telehealth Would you have expected that by May would have been ready to go. Absolutely. Not I think what has been really fantastic to see is how? We really finished two years of roadmap in two months. Wow, and it's great because it's just gives us a window on what the next phase of doctor will be and really looking forward to that in my mind were the point were Amazon started from going. Books to also adding CDs. We have just gone from doing only in person to also A. Doing telehealth and I can't wait to see how this unfolds. It sounds like you. Might be reading between the lines but. You. Really, admire and respect your co-founders particularly. Cyrus and the work that he did to to build this company but I wonder if do you think that you will a I dunno, rekindle your friendship i. Is it something that is in the cards because a break is? Is Emotionally, it's hard Mesa really hard. Yeah, look I Do I think we'll work fourteen hours together again maybe not but you know I I've gotten through tougher breakups and reconciled in my past, and so I think we are we're in good shape and honestly know we are meeting were talking from time to time Yeah. We both have things to do and places to be so we're. Not, hanging out all the time. But it's now also five years ago So We are we're merch focused on making our join the baby successful. When you think about your journey and All Its happen to you how much do you think this has to do with? with luck and how much do you think it has to do with with the hard work you put in your your skills. Well I'm going look I I believe that there's really three ingredients to success. In order importance there are lock the talent, then hard work and. The only one. That's comedian. You control his how hard you work right and Now working hard to gives you more shots on goal It helps his day on the top of what you your talent allows and absolutely restarted at the right time the right place. So What what I'm proud of an all that journey has only that yet when we were wrong and when be had to revise and. When we needed the grit to actually make it work. I L we lived up to that and and that's really The all that anyone can ask themselves to.

"burr" Discussed on Citation Needed

"The dual. But really just Hamilton's intentions. burs were super duper clear. He wanted to kill the guy who made fun of at a dinner party who wouldn't some of the evidence for that includes when was quoted later that day as saying, I'm really glad I shot that guy this morning I would have shot him in the heart instead of the abdomen if it wasn't. So fucking foggy seven am next. Almost exact word. Doesn't confirmation from British philosopher Jeremy. Bentham after Burr told him like or years later when they went up said, yeah totally knew I was going to kill that guy that's what Aaron burr volunteered when he met with the philosopher who basically invented modern ethnic. Later. Reported. Wow that guy's fucking evil get an exact words from. Burs just like so yeah then I shot him totally dead. Hey what are you writing there Jeremy? Shumpert book it's just cool snow. Murder for hate was definitely burst plan ric clear in terms of Hamilton's intention. It wasn't as obvious except, yes it was also murder for hate very clearly both of them but one big piece of evidence that brings that into question was a letter that Hamilton wrote before the duel it was titled Statement on Impending Duel With Aaron Burr by Alexander Hamilton which kind of makes whole plausible deniability thing. Moot point. So, in letter Hamilton explained that he was opposed to duelling for both religious reasons and also you know bullet based reasons but he couldn't just back out. So he wrote that he was intending to throw away his first fire or not fire at all like for honor. But he didn't tell me about the letter send or publish it in a way that burr would know an even if he did letter didn't explain that Bro away. My first shot means fire like seven feet away from your face that'll be how honorably throw away which is weird because I heard he's not throwing away his shot is. A Song Yeah I feel like I promise not to shoot you. If you promise not to shoot me, letters are best deliver before the dual right that's set it up before. Like involved in. The agreement, you could just skip the dual. Oh. Okay. So we can just like not wake up early that day. Sleep. On. We're GONNA go all the way, out to Jersey. Boat. So, Hey, this is everything i. just mentioned some historians think that Burr actually shot I and Hamilton really was planning to throw a shot and then Hamilton only fired by accident after getting hit by Burr but. That's fucking stupid. To shoot your gun into the ground just right to the side of you or not shoot at all, and then you get shot in the stomach, your body's reflex probably doesn't involve aiming your gun almost at the other guys had and firing right next to him. You know what have made deciphering all this a lot easier. If. They had some of the witnesses that weren't like children hiding their heads under blankets. So the dueling monster. Also, according to several counts when they were taking their places Hamilton started doing a bunch of very aggressive like murdering taunting at one point you called a time out on the Senate proceedings. He pointed his pistol toward Burr and started slowly and repeatedly citing along the top of the gun to make sure his aim was just right to Taunton and make it very aggressively clear. What was about to happen? So Hamilton was very obviously lying in the letter, which was just a way to make look extra if or one the dual and it worked super smart move by Hamilton Engine Alexander, Hamilton inventor of banking end saying you had to hold back because you're karate makes you too. Yeah I know you said it's a smart move but like. This smarter move would have been to shoot her like that would be waste. But it's a good backup plan in case. Yeah. So when burr heard about that letter after the dual would have been better before good point but yet he heard about it after responded contemptible if true, township in my favorite moment from Aaron Burr he pointed out that Hamilton's plan was technically a violation of the code duo. which was actually and that's no violations. Speaking violations shooting a guy to death was technically a violation of New Jersey la and apparently rowing slightly out of New York and shooting a guy to death was a violation of New York law. got charged with murder in both states, but neither charge ever made it to trial. He actually finished out his term as vice president and nothing ever happened inaugurating a long American tradition of vice presidents getting away with shooting people. I mean even if he was impeached by the house, like you said, nothing would. He actually posed for a portrait in front of dweller brand dueling. Berle left his VP office in eighteen o five with pretty much the whole country hating him. But he'd also just learned that laws don't count for him, which is kind of exciting. So he moved out West and tried to steal the Louisiana purchase with his plan was to make a whole bunch of that land into his own personal country. Got In touch with General. John's. Of the US Army, you help him out. At which point? General Wilkinson sent a letter to President Thomas Jefferson and out immediately arrested for treason but. a Wilkinson had his back turned during their meeting the. country's. got a credit, all the charges I don't understand. And then following the treason thing burr move to Europe for a while and then eventually back to new. York, where he spent the rest of his life as a lawyer and apparently a serial womaniser, there's actually a book of Aaron Burr Erotica. After he died this real entitled the amorous intrigues and adventures of Aaron Burr and all the womanizing actually led to a tragically funny divorce when his second wife left him in eighteen, thirty six, she hired Alexander Hamilton. As her divorce. You. Amazing. Amazing for a bunch of his stuff by the son of the guy, he murdered with a gun and on September fourteenth eighteen, thirty six, the exact day that divorce was finalized Aaron Burr died. Alright Soviet to summarize what you've learned in one sentence. What would it be the vice president of the United States and walk out onto fifth avenue take or straight over the Hudson row cross the river killer. Resident try to steal pieces of the country and. what's old is. Sure. Okay but what did you learn about the topic your essays? Yes. All right. So heats, are you ready for the quiz? Alright heat. What's better name for Aaron BURR'S EROTIC MEMOIR? It, Burns when I pee Louisiana for kiss. was good birds.

"In that treason thing for later, we'll circle back to that. Okay. Okay. But I'm GonNa Admit Right now I'm at least a little bit comforted to know that trump is going to be the villain. And we're also founded the Manhattan Company, which eventually became j. p., Morgan, chase, and not surprisingly the whole thing was a giant scam in seventeen, ninety nine. He took advantage of the yellow fever epidemic and ask the state of New York to let them start a company that would deliver clean water and he got New York to grant a financial loophole in existing laws that effectively let them start a bank without actually being a bank company barely delivered any water did the bank thing. But in order to keep their loophole going, they would ceremoniously pump some tiny bullshit amount of water through a pipe to nowhere. They. Going Until Nineteen Twenty To. Nothing into China. A tiny bullshit amounts of nowhere is how the marketing team at chase promotes their more. I just I love it stopped in nineteen twenty-three just some guy like. Hey, Adiwinoto water bill is really high like. I'm. Running for one, hundred, twenty, three years or so just. Jiggle A. So, back to the origin of the dual, a grudge between burn Hamilton started in seventeen ninety one when Burg got elected to the US. Senate the Guy He beat was Hamilton's father in law who's going to be helping Hamilton with. The PONZI schemes. So earn Hilton started feuding and it got really bad during the presidential election of eighteen hundred. The incumbent was John Adams of Hamilton's federalist Party and Burr was running along with Thomas Jefferson on the democratic Republican ticket, the rival party, the rules of the electoral. College at that point if each elector to votes first place would be president in second place will be vice president and the Democratic Republicans knew they had seventy three electors which was enough to win and they plan to have seventy two of them both Jefferson and Burr with last elector only voting for Jefferson. So Jefferson would be president and Vice President. But somehow the electors fucked up that very simple fucking plan and it ended with a tie of seventy three votes each and that meant there was a tiebreaker vote in the House of Representatives. Controlled by the federalists who hated Thomas Jefferson but Hamilton explained that he super-duper extra hated her. And convinced the House make sure Jefferson one. Apparently, they voted thirty five times in a row all ending. Times what percent on ballot number thirty, six, they finally just barely voted for Jefferson. So for became the VP in a murderous rage wanting to kill him. So how how much Sarah Tissues winking has to happen during those thirty five? It's like fourteen hours into a rock paper scissors tournament just like sweaty. fucking throw scissors again steep God damn. It scissors. Scissors that didn't say that's insane Mantis. So the feud kept ramping up and the next big moment happened eighteen o four when burr decided to run for governor of New York and he once again failed thanks to the efforts of Hamilton. So burr was still the vice president in his first term at that point. But he was such a giant asshole that Jefferson was dropping him from the ticket for the reelection campaign. So burr announced his new plan and the Albany Register newspaper immediately published a letter written by a politician named Charles Cooper that mentioned a dinner party where Alexander Hamilton talked all about how Burr is a dangerous asshole who should never be in charge of anything. Hooper also added I could describe in detail and even more despicable opinion which Hamilton is expressed of Mr Burr, and that last part sent. Aaron, Burr into another. Rage so immediately started rage drafting a letter clearly doing that thing we have to hear the pen. Scrape o'malley paver. grunting along with your thoughts. And the letter was written to Hamilton directly not like Cooper or the newspaper right to Hamilton it said more despicable I demand a prompt and unqualified golf tournament or denial of the use of any expression that would warrant that assertion from Mr Cooper. You tell me right now the worst thing you can think of me or else. Is. All right. So Elton got this letter from Aaron Burr's dedicated angry letter delivery guy that he had and he wrote a response explaining that he can't be held responsible for cooper adding that hill abide the consequences if burs still unsatisfied and apparently they went back and forth like this for weeks with burs angry letter guy walking around New York City with. Analog. tweets all on. Paper. In burs house and Hamilton's house. Kept, demanding answers about laws of gentlemanly honour and decorum and Hamilton kept responding with. Okay. I already answered nineteen? Times all these questions. There's no new information we're done. You said he was a federal. So nonchalant sure. He wasn't a libertarian out there. Yes. A dare. US. So. Finally, Aaron Burr had no other recourse issue, a gunfight challenge, and Hamilton accepted game the fuck on. Are we sure he had no other no other recourse. A lot of other recources available warrior social media history shows up to prove. I can't actually condemn this behaviour. We're GONNA pause quick break. Nothing. Gentleman I have shocking news the presidential election. Is A tie. Okay. Yes. Yes. Yes it's true. We shall know cast our ballots again. Okay everyone it is. Is a tie again. Did you never want just vote the same way? Succeed. Should have been more clear. Okay. We're going to do this again, but someone needs to change their vote. Alright. Understand cancer. Casher. is taking forever. Okay okay. I it seems to people change their votes. So that leaves us with another ties so We need an odd amount of people to change their vote. Got It. Lift up fifteen. Okay. Vote number twenty two. Is another tie seriously people what the fuck is happening. We should vote again. Right? You'd think. So that's the.

"Our? Our goal is to be the number one platform independent to specialists and what we do apart from developing selling web-based SAS solutions for learning management systems and educational content so forth speech, naming websites bill so develop high-quality custom voices spilled using deep learning methods that you can deploy basic on any hardware aging from embedded systems to high capacity servers, or in our cloud very nice. Okay, so that's the nicest distinct explanation. What kinds of applications do companies use your text to speech voices for then what the main areas you sees them being employed for. I think it's all the traditional industries if I've your call centers of course, but also since we have lots of the small footprint, high-quality Texas beach voice his where quite big in the embedded space as well so for can be anything from assistive technologies, these by people with impairments or Romans, or any non connected device, so that is I think one of how sorry I totally lost here. and. I'm thinking embedded devices, but these are things that help people speak. People have lost the ability to speak. Acceptability, on the web, we're kind of thing. Yes, accessibility for people that struggling with reading a lot of contents on the screen, basically so they can have help. Basically having their content read outs online directly into learning management systems or directly in the educational content again. Yeah, and then what we have seen of course in the last year of course, an explosion of a requests coming from burs, kinds of dialogue system so voice interaction platforms, virtual assistant, smart speakers, and that is why we started to focus quite a lot on streamlining our process to develop custom voices interesting, okay. Okay so this whether the businesses picking up on this speak aside then what kind of applications what kind of things that people actually using these custom voices for? Why would people choose to use a accustomed voice on a voice application as opposed to just the standard Alexa voice for instance with the Google voice well, I think there are a few different reasons I mean one is that if you have your own voice, your branded voice that are sort of well aligned with your your brand values and sort of its sounds like the company that you want to sound. Like. A, logo type basically so or graphical to sign that you use for your company voice is equally powerful in the voice space, because if if all the information and applications from older brands for example, not one of the popular platforms assistance platforms, if they all sound the same, so of course quite difficult to distinguish one brand for from an utter I think in the brandon voices like with lower types and. And stuff there are certain brand values that you can communicate to get war. Yeah, it's truly the what you're saying to convey the values of your brand to be more memorable. I guess as well so people recognize your brand through the sounders in addition to the visual kind of branding the everyone's today, not make sense you see. Guys produce high-quality text to speech voices using deep learning models to older. Older is that right? These are unique voices. You make for each company. Is that right? Yeah, yeah, correct I, mean we do have Jerem ninety different voices of the shelf to has more in a thirty five different languages currently. We're used to grow that quite a bit this year, but really even though if you can, you can tweak the existing voices have slightly different character and so forth but many. Many customers do want to have their. You know they have specific requirements on what their voice. Their corporate voice sort of should sound like some customers even have their voice talents. If they are currently using for can be in the VR system can be four different touch points like a radio commercials for TV commercials, so it's it's a voice that when you hear it. You immediately associated with this brand. On the the sort of sonic branding part, some the have very strong preference of having a specific sort of language, obviously gender age should be like very formal sound should be more like a young hip sound or How does your brand sound I mean that is the important question and that is identified is about scouting the right speaker that fits well with those requirements and basically start to produce a custom tedious voice.

"burr" Discussed on Historical Figures

"Branch, he didn't take dead aim, but it also wasn't the reserve or throw away my fire shot at Hamilton promised, either before or after Hamilton fired birdshot Hamilton in the right hip. The bullet careened through Hamilton's liver and ended up in his spine. Hamilton collapsed on the spot. Bor advanced towards his enemy, looking remorseful. If the to dualist spoke those words have been lost to history. Both men were swiftly transported away from the dueling grounds. Burr to his home and Hamilton to his doctor. Oddly Burr soon sent a friendly note by Messenger expressing hopes for his enemies, swift recovery Moore was praying for Hamilton's health, but not out of altruism as soon as word spread that Hamilton had been shot outrage against Burr, ignited the Atlantic coast for once Republicans and federalists agreed the vice president was a bar, barbaric assassin and subject to prosecution. Burger was shocked. He presumed people would understand. He was honor bound to dual, especially after Hamilton's insults ended his gubernatorial campaign, but burr had misjudged his rivals influence, and the masses tolerance for dueling when Hamilton died the next day on July. Twelfth Ehrenberg became the first and so far only sitting vice-president to kill another man. It would only get worse from there. A New York. Coroner's jury began an inquest for murder. Murder even though the dual had taken place in new, Jersey and prosecution normally would have originated there. Bird didn't stick around to see if it had hold constitutional muster. The disgraced vice president fled to South Carolina on July twenty first, where he briefly stayed with the Adagio and her husband, ultimately New York state brought then dropped murder charges against burr only to indict him again, violating the states law against dueling. Meanwhile New Jersey convened its own grand jury, and this one indicted burr for murder Burr, allegedly joked to his daughter that the two states were competing to see which shall have the honor of hanging the vice. President There was more than a grain of truth to the witticism. By that time he'd fled further south into Spanish Florida. Lying low and running far appeared to be the right move. The fury over Hamilton's death slowly subsided in the coming weeks. Burke could thank the cool heads that prevailed in the newspapers. They argued that there was no proper legal way to prosecute per they were right. New Jersey dropped its indictment since Hamilton had died in New York and at the same time, New York withdrew its murder charges because Hamilton was shot in New Jersey the competition to hang. The vice president had totally dissolved by the winter of eighteen o four. It was once again considered safe for bird to be seen in political society. It quietly returned to New York and Pennsylvania where he resumed socializing with old friends most were kind enough not to mention the dual supper on March second eighteen o five bird bid his farewell to the vice presidency by way of an address on the Senate floor. Arguably, it was one of the finest works of Oratory in American history, even the Washington federalist, a notoriously burr hating paper was forced to admit that quote. The whole Senate was in tears in speech burr forgave all his critics and enemies, saying that he had no memory for injuries. He closed by encouraging the senate to reject partisanship in praise sound reasoning. Then a hunched and broken man, he left the Senate floor for the last time. His dreams of being remembered as a great statesman were in tatters now all he had left was a burning desire to see more of the country he'd helped to found. That day would be the last time the country ever saw burr in a positive light. The story from here is murky, but we do know. He spent the next seven months traveling through the south and West. He was attempting to raise a small private army with I towards invading Spanish held territories in Mexico at the time. Likely that the United States would eventually go to war with Spain over territories at the southern border, and at nearly fifty years old bird disgust arranging for a filibuster in the event of such a war. At the time filibuster was a military term for an invasion by a private army. It was illegal during peacetime, but permitted during war. If it was done to help the national effort Burs, initial plan for Filibuster may have been patriotic, but patriotism can't explain his letter to British. Foreign Minister Anthony Mary. For asked in writing for Britain's support, convincing the western half the united. To secede from the east, what he planned to do with this newly seceded territory is up for debate, but burr made numerous allies including future President Andrew, Jackson and the United States' highest ranking military officer. General James, Wilkinson, as he toured the country drumming up support, Burr also gathered important maps and documents hired soldiers, and solidified the future invasion plans what he called the revolutionizing of Mexico, not unlike earlier founding fathers burs saw himself as a revolutionary, freeing the people of Mexico. Never mind the fact that he was simply plotting to replace one colonial power with another one led by himself, Burr, kept plotting through the fall and winter of eighteen o six, but in October, one of his own allies sold him out. General James Wilkinson ratted out. Outbursts plan for treason. Turnover burs letters about the private army to President Jefferson. It later became known that General Wilkinson was working with the Spanish government, making him a double agent in the plan, and just as much of a traitor to his country, as borough was, and judging by the letters Burr was certainly a traitor in Jefferson's is a crime punishable by death. Troops were sent to arrest Burr in early eighteen o seven. Though he attempted to flee. He was caught by Jefferson's men in Alabama who dragged him back to Virginia to be tried given. The charge of treason was against a former vice president. The case against Aaron Burr went straight to the desk of the chief justice of the Supreme Court John Marshall. After several months of evidence gathering in August of eighteen o seven, the trial commenced. Jefferson made clear. He wanted Burr to be found guilty. Not just because of their personal enmity,.

"burr" Discussed on Historical Figures

"For it. For the first time in American history, it fell to the House of Representatives to decide the presidency. Since both the tied candidates were Republicans the Federalis had a choice to make support Jefferson as everyone expected or fight for Burr. Who might be tempted to work with them in exchange for their support but Alexander. Hamilton's vocal opposition to Bir held great, sway with the rest of his party in his letters to the congressman. Hamilton nearly begged for heaven's sake. Let not the federalist Party be responsible for the. Of this man under pressure from Hamilton, Congress voted for Jefferson meaning. Burger lost the presidency, but gained the vice presidency. If Hamilton had been satisfied with this slight, their fateful duel might never have taken place. But. Hamilton wasn't satisfied. He was perpetually afraid that Burwood. Try for the presidency again in eighteen o four. So for the entire four years of Jefferson's first term, as president, Hamilton kept his whisper campaign against Burr, going whenever possible he encouraged rumors about vice president burs allegedly prolific sexual conquests, ironic, coming from someone who had himself been black, bailed by a mistress and Jefferson never forgave burr four, contesting their high, he gave his vice president little responsibility and shunned him from cabinet meetings, so despite holding the esteemed number two role in the country dark us lay ahead for. Even mudslinging ads would emerge some of the first in American history handbills distributed in New York City accused burr of seducing young women and spreading sexually transmitted infections by eighteen o four when Jefferson began campaigning for reelection vice-president Burr was unsurprisingly dropped from the ticket. Ejected and dejected burr fell back on his home state. You once again ran for governor of New York. But there was yet another surprise waiting for him at home. Hamilton still committed to killing birds. Career had allied with James Cheetham a uniquely. Peterman together they plotted to destroy burs. Chances in the eighteen o four gubernatorial election amongst the allegations levied against burn the papers. Supposedly, he encouraged male prostitution among his supporters and held orgies in his home. burs own supporters did their best to fight back, but the story of a moderate Republican Vice President, who was a devoted father, and sometimes dated around town, wasn't nearly as tantalizing as the headlines in Cheetahs paper. Even Republicans defected from burs campaign on mass. April of eighteen o four when the votes were tallied, bird didn't just lose the governor seat. He lost by the largest margin in New York history at the time securing a paltry forty one percent of the total votes, forty eight year, old burr was in the absolute valley of his political career. He was still the sitting vice president, but he was a lame duck. Maybe even a dead duck there was. Was No way he could possibly rebound his reputation now and Hamilton couldn't resist bragging a little about burs. Downfall on April twenty third shortly after the election, the Albany Register published a letter at considered newsworthy from Republican Charles de Cooper. It was addressed to Hamilton's father in Law Philip Schuyler the very same man who was displaced from his Senate seat by for in the letter Cooper Related Alexander Hamilton's opinions. Namely that Burr was quote a dangerous man, and not to be trusted with the reins of. The letter closed with an ambiguous claim that there was something about bursts so despicable that it was unfit to commit to writing meaning it was likely sexual in nature. Burr was furious. He suddenly realized that throughout his political career, everyone who accused him of perversion had been a friend of Hamilton in June of eighteen o four burr, wrote Hamilton demanding an apology for the letter. His enemy gave none Hamilton replied. It was unfair to expect him to account for another man's interpretation of what he said. This final spurning left burr with no recourse, but to demand satisfaction under the code dwell Oh the formal etiquette of dueling. This decision was burs obligation under the strict Honor Code of the time. Nonetheless it would end one life and ruin another. That's up next and now back to the story. In June of eighteen o four forty eight year old Aaron Bird challenged forty nine year old Alexander Hamilton to a duel, unlike many gentlemen of his era burr had generally avoided delaying, but by that summer the sitting vice president felt he had no other options failing to issue a challenge after Hamilton's insult and total refusal to apologize would have branded burr a coward and outcome. He couldn't stomach especially after the death of his presidential dreams, so the challenge was made and Hamilton accepted. Dueling was illegal in both new. York and New Jersey, but the latter rarely prosecuted duelists, so they decided to cross the river and dual in the Hawk in new. Jersey knowing that they might not return alive. Both men put their affairs in order burs. Foremost concern was that his daughter theodose would be taken care of. He wrote his daughters and Joseph Allston, begging him to continue providing theodose show with intellectual stimulation. Should he perish in the dual Hamilton on the other hand, busied himself, preserving his public reputation erode out a lengthy missive, titled Appalachia which explained why he agreed to the dual refusing it would have marked him a coward and destroyed his future in politics. Hamilton also promised to reserve and throw away his shot at Bir. In other words, he would miss poor, not fire at all on purpose to this day, historians debate whether or not Hamilton really intended to throw away his shot after all he supplied the duelling pistols, which were loaded with one ounce balls. A deadlier ammunition compared to other options. On July eleven. Th eighteen o four both men arrived at the dueling grounds at sunrise. In order to reduce the potential danger, it was agreed that both men would fire quickly after the signal was given with little time to aim Hamilton pause the dual briefly to put on his glasses for a clearer view, but it didn't help much. When faneuil Pendleton shouted present, and the men turned around the sun was in his eyes, and well burr had the sun behind him. He wasn't familiar with the pistols Hamilton had provided with both men disadvantaged. It seemed the dual might end like most did with honor preserved and to living rattled combatants. Objectively, no one knows. Knows, who shot first? Each man's second claimed his friend was more reluctant to fire. What is known? Is that Hamilton raised his gun as if to adjust his aim to the light, then fired a shot that when over burs head and struck a tree.

South Park is doing the minimal thing saying I is You know all that stuff on You know we look at a lot of stuff on What's his robot chicken and the the show. I was on there the spy show. I've only watched zillion episodes of it. I get the pull it up. That's why we have a monitor animated show. I used to tyler. Everyone's running around panicking PA art archer. Everyone's because you're here. I've never seen people move around so much waller recording. Everyone's just moving around my shit moving. Show me this is recording. Yes so we. Just we just like looked at zillion things like that and then we tried to come up you know and it was all trying to get frank frank was the sort of the centerpiece. It's like we could make him to and he had to look like you. There's somebody trying 'cause the way I was going to be screaming and yelling and stuffy. We wouldn't come off as too sympathetic so yet started with that. But you know speaking of the Simpsons you know Mike Price Ice from co Creator and so he's guided us through pretty much all the Whitewater of the first three seasons. Peter Billingsley Vince. Vaughn all all those guys Victoria von all of those people over at Wild West so you know who vince is bad just surround myself with people who knew what the hell they were doing like watching animation. It's just so soothing for me now because everything is I hate the word triggering but you watch any show now. And you're like didn't he have an allegation Jenner. God like it's just like everything so loaded now so what you do is you just. Don't watch the News Really Social Media News and you could enjoy Bill cosby's entire back catalogue. Don't kidding I mean but you don't get into every fucking thing thing that's going like. I tapped out of politics. I have to tap dot at. What's going on where but then once you push through that then you have to then then I try to do something in your world that helps somebody out right like you know what I'm GonNa help you WANNA whatever homeless people public schools or something that you can pick up on so I? I'm against just saying well. You know politics crazy. You know doesn't make a difference. What color tie they're wearing Boba? It's fine I agree with all of that but like after that. Then what you just not GonNa do anything out for yourself. No that's kind of what they're doing. I realized that I was kind of doing that so but I definitely do a a lot of me. TV's another big one for me yeah me. TV just watch memorable entertainment television. I don't even know what it is you you should know what it is. You're still young young and have your life ahead of you. It's all the shows that I watched when I was a kid. Some of which that were already ten in twenty years old Rockford files Jak gunsmoke on smoke. Peter Gunn Seventy seven sunset strip. Billy's beverly hillbillies Buck Walk Raja's cannons a great one the original Charlie's angels. There's Lonzo Colombo's a great one. Different strokes Thursday. Show if I could find one that was on when I would watch that. Gilligan's on the problem is now people want to go up and tear these apart. That's a traditional gender role. That's implies will Tony be people. Don't a select few group of people like thirty bloggers. Thirty bloggers can can move the needle so mannix is a great one. I said Matic's Mannix. I love matlock growing up lockers. Great all of those. She wrote say beneath Rawhide TV role. So I just sit Darren Watch that and there's like there's no global warming the problem is wonder woman never did much for me because I always felt like wonder woman did less than the average just woman and she was hot. That man's buying her drinks. You know I remember like wonder woman being like my single mom is doing more than so you just did in that episode. She got a pilot's license fees instrument rated up there in the cloud. You gotta give her that That's a big move for chick back in the seventies. You have your helicopter Dr Pilot's license. I hear yes I do not scare you. Yeah it's terrifying but it's something that once you get past the fear it's fucking incredible and it's an unbelievable unbelievable privilege or whatever but like you know I'm very careful with it so Right up here is where the L. A. F. D. Lance to refill water when they're putting fires out and I go up there and watch them and it brings tears to my eyes to watch these guys dirk. I can't fly only got a a couple hundred hours. I I don't know what I'm doing. Those guys are fucking amazing so it's a hobby. Yeah let's talk about paper tiger. It's out I'm sure you've already seen it especially if you're listening to the show Jessica Curse on your producing her special December. Sixth that comes out right. She's she's one of those. I was saying like this. Some some comics. You know that you really have to have a game plan after they go on and she's one of them were it's just like hey I was gonna try some new shit. I think I gotta go probably wishes I with the crowd a little bit to make them try to forget her but she's just she's she's the real deal and she she didn't skip any steps and she went all the way around the track. Yep went all the way around the track so she's ready to go so we're expecting Big things out of that and You know the special is that we've done. We did one with Paul version and we did one with Edwards an now Jessica up. Paul is now selling out comedy clubs which is so great. I do miss working with him on the road but I do and I'm obviously super happy for him that you know just seeing somebody make it like that is is awesome and plus I love Paul always said Paul. I want to see you get money just because I wanna see what you're going to buy. I know you're going to buy like an alligator something stupid. It's funny I love it. You did this. It's my special guys. It was such a different experience. I don't think people understand that. Most comedians they worked their asses off They get ready to shoot a special and then everyone everyone prisoners special like is a lawyer for like a trust fund kid or they rip you off or they re. I have been stolen from so much lied to. Someone has some characters out there and they take advantage of Comedians Comedians for me. I'm just so happy to be there and I didn't know shit about production. I didn't know where people were stealing. I Yeah I got screwed on on the earlier ones as far as like Budgetary stop and then when I found out what was going on it was just like Oh these people are finding out what my budget is and then budgeting it to like within a nickel and I don't know how they find out or they give people kickbacks for let me let me know and I'll thirty five granted budget is a male and fucking.

"Right but I'm just I'm so curious I'm like you know you know there's nothing I mean. I don't know somebody called me was surprising about the pirates that we weren't prepared for every time we encountered them it's not like they could evolve that much right it seventeen eighteen eighty four. You really can only go from swords to canons to maybe a musket. Yeah but are the pirates gonNA take muskets on the sea very very wet. Very what on powder dry any I just. I don't know I'm not trying to discount. How scary Gary the pirates were? I'm just trying to be like. Why didn't we evolve alongside the pirates right like if you're out on a fishing fishing mission bring some swords like what are you doing swords? Get yourself again back on thing. She cannons doc. Yeah Yeah I don't know I don't know somebody called me. Who knows more about pirates like talks about why they were so scary and what made them like? Why are we doing? It's just like the lawlessness. Like they don't obey any they're just criminals. That isn't the end of the day what they can do to you which is like what board your ship kill you and take your take your stuff very minimal. You know you can. You can do that same thing to them and understand. It's not I'm not saying like I should be captain of ship but like I would have made some calls. I would make some changes shift ashore. If we're going to see we're going to go prepared prepared to meet them head on. You got got sorts. You gotTA candidates cannons one next. Well she got you. I can get scurvy. Give me twenty four hour. I don't know all that to say that's the first fact filibuster comes from AH comes from the Dutch word. Unlike Dutch speaking Dutch that is a weird one. Dutch is an almond. It's not yeah we're were you like French words. Maybe Italian but like I love how they were probably just add it. They're like okay. We've used all the French words. Let's expand who who knows another language a Ronald. What do you speak Dutch Dutch? GimMe a word filibuster. What's that mean higher? It don't get me started in another filibuster. That's my that's my imaginary thing for Filibuster anyways okay can only to your imaginary thing for the cabinet. This reminds me of my goodness all of you here in this room. I just feel like am I in my kitchen. Where am I pots? I Love I love pretending to know why they chose what they chose and now you know maybe it was. Maybe it was like who knows word filibuster. Yeah good some artificial sure. Why so? The filibuster became popular in the eighteen. Eighteen fifty s when it became popular for senators to hold the floor in order to block a vote. Love Teen Fifties would a wrought time. Were near the civil war around the civil war in this of war. I understand why we are trying to try to be disruptive Yep in the Senate and now refers to the the filibuster now refers to quote any attempts to block or delay Senate action on a bill or other matter by debating it at length by offering numerous numerous procedural segial motions or by any other delay or obstructive actions literal. Anytime you're acting out and that is that is a filibuster during the Senate. Yeah you're you're literally just like you're you're being you're being annoying. You're being a little witch with them. Be Rude and by little which with be I mean the filibuster okay. What are area the funding part of that was they used to be? And I didn't think of the word. Bat Age my and not saying that curse word Because we've never curse on this show family friendly show. I pictured in my mind's eye a cartoon witch holding a B B Wedge with the be year round her. Sure that's very view. It's like when you thought see you next. Wednesday was see you next Tuesday food like she's received next Wednesday and stock. When I fall I ball hard? It's a trip as a Grand Canyon. It's always really surprising. I love it so much as somebody who can't read. I often like when you fall and literally literally. I was just reading that thing and I and I stumbled right before procedural and both with producer Keeton art and went you got it gave me a nod of that is the word yes good. And that's the reality that I live. Okay words different when you're looking taking hat them. Then when you sound them I know the word procedural on the page. There's a lot of letters like a man anyways. Okay we're still talking about the filibuster not panic okay. So when congresses I starting members of the House of Representatives as well all is senators could filibuster but because the number of members in the house continued to rise with the growing population revisions were made to the house. Rules is to limit debate in order to get things to belong because like literally now we have four hundred plus members of the house at all filibuster in the way they can in the Senate much. The Senate was smaller and so limited debate continued on the grounds that any senator should have the right to speak as long as necessary on any issue. Schumer should they. Do you think I know I know I know they shut whatever. Okay whatever fighting with me. The filibuster filibuster has been used to stop a lot of good stuff. It's also been used to stop a lot of bad stuff so I'm always like I get I get those Washington really worthy If it was all like that it would be great so in Sarah Bender who is a political go science professor from George Washington University. My Shadow to Sarah I know and a senior fellow at Brookings. She went and testified before Congress and the whole testimony is basically her giving them a history. History lesson really great and she told the committee that some of the preconceptions or lower that we have around the filibuster are basically wrong tale. All that's what we've been doing guys not based in it so inaccurate totally holds up like I feel like we're doing the founding fathers. Were like wait what. That's what you took that I to me at. Sorry no then. Some wires crossed here so for example. The House and Senate rule bucks in Seventeen Nineteen eighty-nine were basically identical. They functioned in the same way. They abided by the same rules and this is a quote unquote both rule books included. What is known as previous question motion? The House kept their motion and today it empowers simple majority to cut off debate. This senate no longer has that rule on the books so they I used to like not have a filibuster right. And then they got rid of this rule K- kind of by default. Now they have a filibuster because they got rid of no rule the rule right which is why it's different for the House and Senate because the House still has this role To they can be like stop. Talking right stopped. I don't WanNa hear are you. We're done any more. Do done in a different part of the testimony. She goes on to say basically. It's all Aaron Burr's fault. Well sure all roads lead to Erin Burn. Read a book the book it's all there. It's I mean honestly honestly Erin like talk about somebody who just couldn't settle down who just couldn't take a deep breath and get a cup of tea and just relax just for allowing needed to have his hands and I'm like get out of town. Take a vacation and get a hobby build a house plant a tree do anything just stop messing around. Always messing around is making trouble cheese. Louise Erin so quote from Serb leader in eighteen. O Five Vice President. Aaron Burr was presiding over the Senate freshly indicted for the murder of Alexander. Hamilton Coursey what's I was freshly indicted. So He's just killed Alexander Hamilton and he offers advice to create a filibuster rule. Thank you Erin Erin. And according to Sarah Bender he said something like this quote you are a great deliberative body but a truly great Senate would have a clear cleaner. RULEBOOK yours is a mess You have lots of rules that do the same thing close quote and then he like and then she says he singles out the previous question motion. which we're going to talk about outs? Don't freak out. I mean I'm not I'm just angry at Erin I know she goes on to say that today. We know that a simple majority in the house can use the rule to cut off debate but in eighteen o five neither chamber used the rule that way majorities were still experimenting with it because it's a startup nation. Yep Hello and so when Aaron Burr said get rid of the previous question motion Russian. The Senate didn't think twice about it so he was like get. Don't do that. It's really dumb. Nobody uses it. Why do we have this thing? Get rid of it. I'm sorry I Alexander is dead is dead warm in the ground and Aaron Burr's like in the Senate being like two hundred advice the epitome. Do you WanNa know my advice of a millennial mass a mess. Yes I yes I am and guilty of murder but a mess later guilty of treason. Oh I think so. Yeah like you're you're rulebook is a mess your rulebook needs cleaner. Also we're at a point in the nation where we can worry about the cleanliness of our rule book right but not that our vice president is rare..

The rolling stones is like like they have like that you know with the Beatles who like we're not planning more live shows Were I feel like they had that need in that hunger. Yeah they had to have that rush with that feeling that you're talking about rush from the audience when you're connecting with an audience like that kids it's like a sickness but if applied properly which they did it is Incredibly what I love about watching Keith when he plays a chord and he lifts his shoulders up and he makes that face. It's not that's not an act. It's unaffected affected. You're watching what it makes them feel yet. Totally Buddy Mike got like front row tickets like an eighty nine one. Only time. I saw him on the steel wheels tour and he was so close. And he's just off duty goes Keith was just whacked out on something and then you read. You know. He didn't do. He hasn't done drugs like the seventies you know. Have a drink here or whatever but like it was was just like what you were. Seeing was a guy experiencing euphoria juuling what he loved to do. Totally and what you are doing it was reading. You Know Star magazine in shape right and understand. I saw one of the great things I've ever Keith. Richards as far as his passion he was talking about how much he loved guitar goes. He was talking about opening a guitar case. And that smell. Because that smell he goes he said he just want to crawl in enclosed the lid and it was just like it's like this is just coursing through his totally really so I just anybody like that is like addicted to what they do to that level. It's like Oh my God I got a fucking Bruce springsteen. I felt that way but when I saw him play when I could see the the details of his face and how immersive Gig one time Ireland and this guy you know when these guys just drives people uh-huh and I was just like I was asking who they drove because there was a great story. So Yo he's going like he's like I'll tell you who I drove believe a couple of months ago I drove Bruce Springstreen I when I was gone and I was just like going. Oh my God what was that like. He Goes Oh God love him. He just collapsed into the car. He was in so much pain after the show me. He's almost seventy and he was sitting eh talking about. It's just a terrible. I was fucking pretty good. That was like an Irish Paul McCartney He was talking about the what the guy puts row. Yeah Yeah physically that he got in a car occupied tackle you guys sliding fucking knees. Three hours yeah jumping up on the reunions. There does your hip. She's God God love him. Seen on Steven Steven Tyler's fetal fucked up. Because you know like Gallup and things he doesn't want he would tap for kind of on the side like did just no air and tear and James Brown prince knee and hip replacements. These guys like when those people are fucking you know. That's why they aside from the talent like when they're putting their bodies on the line like that it's just like you can't can't even if you're dumb you feel it and they expect that if you go to a rolling stone show you don't want Mick Jagger. Kansas stand there. He's about that guy is I think he weighs the exact same way he way when he did the Ed Sullivan Show Yeah Sixty Hour. He's the same He never got like that. You know that Dad Baud Yeah. He was hilarious. He became a damn the seventy s and he still doesn't have data. There's no excuse for any anybody else out there. He's been a deadly twelve times over before I know you're not great with compliments. Okay Act well thanks for doing this. And thanks F is for families out now that season four thank you for crushing it for all of these years got season four is going to be coming out. I don't know when early part of next. It's still so fun to do. I love the stories going is. I'm trying to have fun because it'll be sad when we stopped and I know all right. Yeah so one of these stays on my podcast. I gotta I gotTa get you say. Let's do it all right all right you just do it before bedtime right. All Right Eh one. Do that happen well that that happens. Say That happened is strange for us because we listen to him so you listened to him all the time so it must be strange to hear my voice occasionally like interject interject. It's weird I in a way. I'm like shut up like I in my head. I'm like just let them talk to. That's why I don't think I talked as much I see a lot of yeah yeah yeah. That's on Brian. I know I know I do too. I can't it's hard. There's certain crutches that whenever I listen to the show I Gary Cole- in the Office Office. I realized I have certain things that I say. I say the word so allot you do. Yeah Yeah I say yeah well anyway. Something it's not about me. It's not about you pitcher. It's about it's about bill and I will say I think you did a good job of this. Maybe going to sound insulting to. I think I made it as a compliment used. You did a really good job of staying on his way to a large extent because I don't think or foam I'm just fell down and we have a new little description of new studio in the House and in home studio and it's fallen apart so maybe it sounds a little different listeners. But I I think his forte is just talking to him. So it's clear I think he's I think he's a good interview guest. I I think he's good at interviewing people but I think definitely his forte is just being alone. stand-up yeah sometimes bill on bill show. If you're not familiar Miller with he'll just be listening he'll be watching a sports game and it's entertaining. That's the crazy now show is that he talks about certain topics that I have almost. Oh interesting like racecar dry. Yeah racecar drive like Mo.. GP motorcycle racing or yeah or NHL Hockey. There's certain things that are of interest drumming. Yeah even things. I'm not interested in. Yeah I still want to hear him talk about. That's the mark of a truly outstanding person. He is maybe the most entertaining meaning single person that I can think of. He's just has such strong funny opinions. That that's why I think you to stay out of his way. You don't want to interfere too much. You WanNa let him get his his opinions out in the most efficient way possible as interviewer. I think he's very convicted. And because of that it's it's almost not worth engaging on a back and forth. I mean maybe I'm making excuses for myself not being able to also in your defense. It wasn't so much of a dialogue as some of the other yet interviews have been I. I mean that's a nice taste of what his show is about to. It's basically like if you listen back to the show and you mute out every time the yeah pretty much vill show doc you add some hockey and yeah but that's why it's so fun watching listening to neon his wife because she can actually she actually challenges right because she well knows me better than me but also is very smart herself and quick and funny near as real real funny. I never understood or never appreciated did that transactional nature of stand up comedy. I never he talks about that a bit but yeah When he feels it from the on yeah that that it's it's the audience and ideally gets to laugh and gets distracted from their lives but the comedian get so much to do? They get so much validation joy and the way you feel I can imagine I can only imagine when a whole audience full of people are like the laughing so hard they can't roll. My feeling must be unbelievable. I that feeling when it's only a handful of people it's one person it feels so good. I mean attack. I can't imagine way. Also you know Justin Timberlake. Can People like that. Who have who just have control over a whole crowd? Yeah but then you think what is the opposite of that. What if you're alone on stage I think about that? This is why stand up comedy to me is such a crazy thing to do because if you fail at that had it must feel horrible. Well that's why I think bill. BURR got a lifetime's worth of credit. Not just from comedians. But from the people like me fans of comedy for his that rant that he delivered in in that show at shown Philadelphia. It's now infamous. I would famous now. WH- when does it become famous. When does this isn't infamous? When it's like a bad thing guy? Lee Harvey Oswald is. Yeah that's true it's famous now. It's a good thing. It's a good thing. He he goes on a twelve minute rant against Philadelphia because these people have been heckling his fellow. Oh comedians all day and they've just been such a rude volatile audience that he just goes off on them and it is. It's like glorious. That was my introduction action to bill. Burr you want you writing me but that feeling when you are bombing on stage. Oh my God and things aren't going well I I think there always seems to be kind of a dark undercurrent to these brilliant comedic. Mind that that you meet you come across and you ask him about that a little bit you said you ask about the rivalries in the jealousy. Yeah I'm because it must be I. I can imagine how easy to be jealous of someone in that world because if your so desperate for laughs and so afraid of the opposite of that it makes sense that you would see people doing well. It'd be like hi well. And they're so few slots available right success for success like there are so many comedians trying to downplay downplays. That claims. That's not much thing. I'm really into like all these little. Like in fights means God God. I'm really into such a comedy. I was thinking about bills Special about tiger a paper tiger and how some of the things he was saying. Were so incendiary incendiary especially in today's cultural climate like That we're we're it's quite easy to offend and MM He was saying such potentially offensive things but the audience was for the most part as far as much as you could hear until they were all laughing and enjoying it engaged so so it's almost like when you're performing live versus the there are two different arenas that that are being talked about when it comes to that kind of comedy which is like one is the people at home on twitter and social media. who have have their phones at their disposal and they can just say whatever they want versus like the immediate reaction of an audience? And how do you Are there just different playing fields. And and where does that comedy lived. We're should it live well. He says that he's he'd stay off social media. Exactly it's void having read something speaking of the that feeling that feeling when you are on stage and you're just experiencing this like see evaulation. I remember being on the side of the stage my ex. You know what I was going to say. No no no I just thought you were about to be like I can relate. No no no I can't really. I mean the closest I can come is like which I hate is bowing at the end of the play which I fucking hate doing I hate the the bows I remember doing it. Once I was doing playing San Diego and with how Lyndon the great and Donald phaser Donald very tight about such a good but how was eighty five. An old school actor. Great actor was on Barney Miller. He played the lead and Barney. Miller if you remember that for some of our older more seasoned listeners and how director gave me a note he said just in your you. You gotTa work on your your vows to quick and I just wanted to get off the stage. I hated the idea of like..

You'll be drunk and just you know but I also got into bourbons and stuff do this one here so I became. Pretend it's a hobby. Yeah I became the canister drunk right. Yeah Yeah so class here and it was like you know I didn't know how to deal with some of the new stresses in my life so I I was using I was using. It is that and I was drinking alone and I loved it I would come home. My wife would be a sweep. I miss it still and I would come home and and I would get a nice big ice cube. I'm literally mouth-watering now. I would take your flood and my rule was first thing I would I would i. Would you know I was really into the reading. The whole thing like we don't want the ice cube to drip into the Bourbon too much because you changing the flavor. It's like those people who like light a Cuban Cigar Little Cedar fucking thing because you know what the chemicals the lighter and I was really getting into all of these all the more knowledge. You have the more you can disguise that your shits a little out of control and they're basically your trip a tour of the Oreo cookie cookie factory and that they have this. This is how they put the sugar in. It's just like buddy as just consuming a fucking sugars off the rails. It's just like you becoming a fat that fuck because I'm not like an but I'm definitely a guy like I what is made me successful. Could also take me out because when I get into Shit Yeah I can industry. It's like Oh my God I like Bourbon fucking get into the shit so woohoo problem then it became. I had to fill it up over just over the the ice cube. Nice call. 'CAUSE I my wife would give me shit like that. I had one drink. She goes like this fucking big. It'd be it's a home port. Ah but she's cool so she was all right Omelette then one became too and then to became three and I was like you know and then I became a dad and then I was like like legally. He's Shit faced. It must be. This was my thing this was I would. I would come home after doing stand up. I had a great fucking time and I had these. I actually bought these glasses that this guy makes down in El Segundo. I don't know if he's still makes them in there and they were all really got into it. They were all made out of glass last. Okay the whole glass including the ice cube. It looked like an ice cube but that was also glass. And then you took the glass and you put it in the freezer so then when you took it out you poured your booze in there and it got chilled and you had this being that was essentially working like an ice cube but there was no water. Oh that'll you were getting this season by looting straight booze and it was chilled in my thing. Thing was I would pour it up and over that glass thing that looked like an ice cube and I would drink three of them and I would watch like three episodes of Peter. Gunn maybe like seventy seven sunset strip and it was like all old school TV. So I didn't have to deal with global warming or any of this people screaming about trump or fucking hillary and I I would just sit there and watch this shit and everybody. In the shows I was watching was drinking and smoking. They wanted to kiss a woman. Only touch you know these big fucking gas guzzling cars. Ars there was no ramifications to any of the behavior the golden era and it made me feel like yeah man was born in the wrong era man fucking. That's it's always great to to to analyze with nobody else. I'm liking all these answers. Yeah compared to compare yourself to like movie stars come in and it also must be weird to be at all I the few times I've been like stoned or slightly drunk around like I don't do it often but if I around a kid kid there's always something a little weird about that but I only matches your well adjusted person. There's this thing that you just can't like 'cause I knew what was going to happen was eventually. She was going to be old enough to be awake when I was doing that. And I was going to normalize that sort of behaviour and then just like yeah. Whatever my dad drank you know Blah Blah Blah Blah? So I try. I tried to shield her from a lot of my problems. Trying to work out. Why like that? You say that about parents about that. We're all just. We have to leave Leib our childhoods behind got like the childhoods. We can't like because it doesn't exist in La. It's in your head right so that was a a really sort of great moment. When I had with my wife at one point I was just like you know what I fucking realize? It's like none of our our childhoods. Don't exist anymore. Yeah you're not this person. You're not that person you'll you and me me and our kid is us right and with her own thing. Sure she's around so whatever the fuck happened to you when you were four. What happened to me when I was six that we're we're still hanging onto it's not? It's not in any way affect her unless we're still hanging onto this shit all the time with parents hard. It's hard because you love them so so much and then you don't want to pass it onto and then what it is. Is it trying to stop one issue. You create this other issue right right you know through overbearing over controlling rolling sort of yet trying too hard. Yeah leaning the other way. What's your do? WanNa really pass on her. Like I disappointed. If she didn't get this from me or or get this from from Nia that you you're gonNA be Alright GonNa be all these people that are going to sell you shit. Fear everything from a car to you need two years of a language and all of this type of stuff like I wish I could go back and it's just literally listened to you. Do what you WanNa do and just know that so much shit that people are going to say to you in life. It's their reaction to this thing that they're afraid you're going to do right and if you've listened to them I mean I can't imagine how many incredible guitarist are working at home depot or how many hilarious people are like driving driving a truck or something like that and they wanted to do something and they just weren't surrounded by the right people because I wasn't strong enough to do this and just when I really look back the luck that I had a falling falling into this and how I somehow there must have been Ryan right right as I almost went off the cliff and I wouldn't have done it. This person came into my life. I mean there is a way so you can then look back in everything. Means something exactly those like you said earlier. Those that things you remember. I don't know but there's definitely things where I just looked like I just did a Gig when I was in Vegas and I and I still have that thing. Thank God I said to my wife I was just like can you fucking believe this is our life like I can't believe I'm GonNa go downstairs and get to act like an idiot for an hour. It's fucking awesome you can. I'm sure that in your pocket listener. You're probably I can. I can feel when you have a good show when you've come back from a tour when you were talking about the middle part of Europe how those state like Hungary. Although shows were Budapest I always on states I would fuck and do a special here. Yeah I was just like I fucking this. Yeah so you can hear that an a and to have the joint. I'm sure we both people who are at yeah. Warsaw Warsaw Budapest Vienna. They will all just like I was kept at the mid west of your if you stay out out of a defensive mindset and you just get into the different vibes of each country you can really have fun with it and just talked to him. I mean like Estonia Latvia. When you get to they're like do you know you just meet somebody where it's like? They're not trying to make you not comfortable there. Sure themselves and you're trying to tell them something and they're not gonNA LAUGH APP unless it's funny. It's and they're not buying unless they sell it to them. I'm terrible it's not doing anything to me. Why am I so uncomfortable? Comfortable around this person and I always thought there was a power move. You know those people who kind of like wait you out. You know what it's a test of you. Yeah is what it is in what you have to do what I always do. Is I find the comedy in it. So the comedy is like Wow I am so fucking comes this guy so you know what I'm GonNa do. I'M GONNA fucking overly overly commit to this and I'm just GONNA I'm GonNa go even. I don't know how to do that necessarily in a pitch. Because in defiance there's a thing with defiance alliances the self esteem toured. But you gotTa make sure you don't punch through the fucking self sabotage so the anger show or any sort of frustration show. Yeah Yeah where I had appeared in my life where I was so angry. Everything I said sounded angry Had this audition for this show. Gregory hines rest to Seoul. Had was GONNA do a Sitcom and I had this audition for it and it was one of those things where they will really far behind and right before I was going to go in. They went to lunch lunch so then it was another half hour and they ate whatever just came in and your own. No but I wasn't mad. I was nervous because I was going to producers service which used to scare the shit out of me back in the day says Blah so I came in I was like bill and I knew I was introverted and I knew I was angry and I and I was like you gotta say something in social so they see you're a good guy and maybe you can book. This and I came in there but everything I said sounded angry. I didn't know that so came walking in and they go. Hey Bill how're you doing. I'm like great I was launched is how I said it but in my head lunch but that's not always said it a a great house lunch and then you're like oh I mean we just got behind were saw and I was like oh no no I well I like like that and then they go. Let's do the scene in this guy taps and I look over. And it's Gregory Hinds. Oh God he was so into the show in such a pro that he didn't skip the auditions he wanted to see. If the VIBE with somebody oh my I went and Jess was all about. And he was all amazing I remember but he was hitting me with the sides. Oh come on man casual played with play.

I think we're an intimate place right now. I think we're in. We're in our house right. Yeah Yeah we should be honest about your temper. You had a temperature kit my former temper right you still. You don't have much of a temporary more. I will say but you had a really big temper as as a kid. You very competitive. I've done it. You also used to get really upset about your report card. Some you got PAT report card right. I remember you remember one time. We got a PAT report card and you came home and you you had in your hand. You're the paper pork on your hand and you're just coming around to the different parts of the house. Slamming a different wall's really of it with your hand. Remember it so clearly. I was so scared. Really Mania Devil. Yeah I would go berserk. I I was a very traumatic kid and then I would get very emotional There were many times I remember running away threatening that I was going to run away and then I didn't get the response I wanted so that made me more upset so I pack up a big bag. I'm making a big show on the cartoons like Wylie Coyote or bugs bunny they would always pack like a little sack. There was something very pathetic about it. And you know if you WANNA look pathetic back to your parents. Nice prop have anyway. Why are we talking about anger and our anger issues as kids? Mostly my anger and she goes. Even your temper pales in comparison not to our guest. Today Pales Pales Pales more than we are a very large temporary. What a great introduction? He's I've got lots of. He's also maybe the funniest person I've met. Yes likewise our guest today is bill burr. Who is one of the best comedians in the country? The world I'd say the universe. He is so funny and actually is an incredible actor too. And I don't think it gets the credit for that He's been in a bunch of movies. the two of US are on show that bill created a Netflix called efforts for family. It's an animated show. Bill plays the father of this family in the early nineteen seventies. I play his son. I play the oldest of his kids. This very angsty teenager named Kevin with about temporary. Yeah yeah terrible temper and we talk a little bit about this but it's it's one of the great joys of my professional. Life is getting to do scenes with bill. Were just yelling at each other. We just like screaming at each other. I'm almost always yelling. or He's as a teen. He's a fourteen fifteen year old so he's either really horny or angry tap tap monopoly days. Yeah it didn't take much I did. Actually it's really fun to be able to do that now in a controlled environment and for for something positive anyway. He's he was kind enough to sit down. He also so as a podcast that. Maybe our favorite podcasts. You both of those same folks. It is definitely my favorite podcast. I would say it's the one podcast that I never ever missing episode. I listen I listen. Every we are very loyal follower. I don't listen to his podcast Monday. Morning podcast and there is no one better. In my opinion there is no one better at talking to himself. And that's mostly podcast is every once in a while he has guest or his wife near comes on. But it's mostly him just just ranting and. I don't think there's anyone better at doing that. And it's weird. I didn't I recently. Met Him for the first time and but it was strange to meet him in person because listening to his podcast. You feel like I feel like and I know you can say this about other podcasts. And and this isn't on communists communist -sarily but I- legitimately felt like I. I I knew so much about him and I was so familiar with him that it seemed weird that I didn't know well I don't know him. Well I mean I don't know That outside just working on that show and and doing an animated show. You don't often get to be around the person usually we record separately. So his wife Neo Christian. I've worked with we've cushion. I've done punches into shorts that you can see on the other cabin dot com but NIA is is very good actress. She was kind enough to be in some of those shorts end and they have such a great relationship comes on the podcast because they are often antagonistic towards each other but in a really fun loving way in such. It's real but it's so fun to listen to how they fight through that in a loving way again and it's funny we. I think we've just gotten lucky in that. We've had a lot of guests on the show. Who are in really good relationships? You know yeah ones that. Are Kevin Bacon Cure Sedgwick. That's true and Kobe smolders. And they're like aspirational relationships. Yeah you. You're an release Japan. Yeah I'm not but I well. Maybe what now that when women here that I had a horrible temperature kid. They're GONNA love that they're gonNA. They're gonNA come knocking Anyway I I've always looked up to him for that for his sense of humor and he has a great special many great specials but his current sprint. One that's out now is a net. flicks is called paper tiger. And it's pretty brilliant. He's I should definitely watch that. He got an incredible mind. He's so oh quick. It was difficult to keep up with him but it was fun to try so I hope you enjoy my attempt at keeping up with the great.

I want to say something else, but I'm on radio, and I'm also at a high school football game. So I figured language is important. But anyway yesterday. Butt-black? He trusts his guys too much, and they in Edney, I think his team would say would drop the too much part. They just feel like butt-black has their back and not he's not going to you know, he's not going to. Do anything. He's gonna say, you know, what Adam you go out there. And you you do it man. I trust you to take down this guy, and he didn't and it costs them. Again, it makes him a great manager. But it also costs a mini costs the Rockies. And now here they are trailing one nothing going to the eighth. The crazy thing is that Jeremy Jeffress is up in the bullpen. I thought four sure that you would see Josh hater close out this baseball game. If the brewers had the lead because after the Rockies were able to tag, Jefferson, it could have been worse thing about if Charlie Blackman's hit down the right field line was a centimeter to the left. We might be talking about one nothing lead for the Rockies in the series. So I am shocked that Jeffress is gonna get another chance here. I guess the argument would be you had to bring in. Because the Rockies had end Desmond at third with. Nobody out you had to bring in Josh hater to try and get that third out against Charlie Blackmon. So it's not that they wanted to bring in Jeffrey. But you see they I would imagine that they wanted to try to conserve Josh hater if they can or at least not over extended so Rockies are we in for a nother late inning comeback. We will find out but hurt on Peres's RBI ground rule. Double the difference. Right now, Tyler Anderson was good again. You gotta give it to the guy. He was he was lights out against the nationals. And he pitched well today got in a couple of James, but was able to get out of it. And now it's just on this offense that again just doesn't like scoring in the first what seven or eight innings of these games. We'll keep you updated the best we can. And of course during football nine. The springs will have one eye out on it as well. There are other things going on in the world of Colorado sports. So let's get to it with story. Number two. Not.
