"Oh, I'm going to get here. I don't like. Ooh, look, it was haunted, but as a winking Joe, But when I arrived, they were very convinced that Things that happens in their home that were of paranormal situations. And I was like, Oh, you're not, you know, wearing all black doing. Stay on. They were very normal people who are remote working during the pandemic. And if you're telling either goes here that makes it worse. Yes, they do definitely try to bring people in because They believe the help wanted, However, they have people who come and never think anything of it. They they're not relying on that. It is a beautiful old home. Um and s O. They say where things happen, but they're not scared of it. They don't care or they think it's You know? Yeah, not evil. We had that. Oh, this is a funny, friendly ghost feeling when they have been there personally, they both mentioned that they had Some instances where if they encountered something one more time that they would be so freaked out. Maybe they would leap. They, uh, in particular mentioned how In the ballroom, their share that has been moved from the corner to be facing in front of Ah, window and they think like that. Too soupy that happened again. It happened multiple times like that. Too weird. I don't want to be around this thing anymore.

They also live in a part of the house that isn't built on addition and most of the quote unquote most active ghost experiences take place in a part of the house of his older that is also unfortunately Coo closer located to a cemetery upon their words, Maybe they think where they're located in the property is so far away from the cemetery. They don't have any issues. But you don't think that they're living in the other building and messing with people as they're. They're like figuring out ways to mess with you. You think this is purely on the up and up right? Absolutely, because that thought did cross my mind. I thought, okay, if I hear something You know, obvious noises or someone rattled my door knob or something. I thought I thought maybe you could hike up try to be another way. But they have also hosted some events like Murder mystery parties throughout the time that they had this property and they have some of those decorations downstairs in the basement, like a skeleton and like like a fake hand, and they don't have any of that stuff upstairs.

"The thing that I'm going to say though is like. To me it's absolutely bizarre and I. Think the debate last night really cinched it for me with the closing question about this like a grader that question of like Oh can't we get along Keppel leaders just like a Greek and the party's just like agree and to me that was the most. Preschool. No offensive this eighth grader asking a second grader question but. Okay. Oh, I'm going on. Radio And now I'm here. At Him Middle, I'm just saying, I'm just saying like come on. Let's grow up like you can't be asking this question at this climate for two people and extremist versus someone who let's be honest is a bit of a centralist. A centrist like we're not asking for an APP like what we're asking for in the Democratic Party is the bare minimum rights for everybody. Yeah and what it is like that idea for the I'm sure there's a listener out there who listens to this podcast who was read. and honestly like you know what? I. Hope you're happy and I hope you're thriving in whatever bubble you're in right now but I'm not asking for. US to come together I, think that it's over I. think that time is dead and I think what we need to do is to takeover as the blue party who's asking for literally nothing it's not extremist at all. These people oh. My God I I just cannot believe that these like heavy trump supporters who are like but like Bible people like the rebels of society asking if anything you WANNA talk about being rebels you're supporting the corporate government the person that's empower you Rab American rebels are just frigging. brainwashed. To a slaughter, that's what I'm betting today but then they're on their from their perspective, the Democrats are brainwashed as well. So it's like sure sure and we're a threat to society in a threat to be American. Tradition. Stalemate Yeah. Let us let us be a break of the tradition this country founded on some insanely problematic shit that we need to break away so that we can mature her with the rest of the world, right? Like we are. So stunted as a nation right now that I I'm at my wit's end of like, what what are we doing if? We go read in this next election. If trump becomes president, it's like what message is that not only for the future of our children. The progress of our nation but what message is that saying worldwide war responsibility? Are we giving this this this man? These small group of white man like the that's what we that's the legacy that our generation will give to the universe. So like If y'all haven't voted yet. That is to say y'all have undecided. Please go blue like please like I employ you beg view. Like please please please download your lease down down. To like I, think the Republicans realize that they couldn't get people to vote Republican. But they could try to get people to not to duchess like not guess period and which is just pretty obvious because I mean, how can he can argue against it if you want but I think it's pretty clear just by the way that they've just conducted business in the last six months. Yeah. It's so interesting that we live in a world like, of course, this would happen now in twenty twenty of all of it's like the worst timing Possum, you know what I mean where You objectively know what is right and wrong right like object like you know what is right and what is wrong with you know what is like just a common sense and yet never in my life have I felt more nervous about collective right and wrong I mean you WanNa. Talk about insanity and losing your minds like you feel a certain way that you think is like, Oh yeah clearly we live in a world where like we want to protect all lives like clearly that's like a a world that we want to just like. We, we want to take care of the disenfranchised. That's that's what's right right and yet I feel. Like the majority of the people don't think that way. scary. That's scary or at least yeah. I. Mean I think it might just be right down the middle. Which is why scary? Which is nice. Even more dangerous because or at least. The people in power should be more careful if they cared about it because this is what what we all have it in our heads. This is leading us to a civil war. Guys we we need exercise some self care. These these next. These next few weeks right cutting off. Let's say consuming news after a certain hour having held sleep habits and you know what? Ordinarily I'd say what did you say Newt's News consumption also knew we never WANNA cut off.

"I'm at the point where I'm like, how can you not like how can you not have like like just a couple things to say and I'm not I'm not trying to be that fucking gatekeeper person telling people what to do but I do feel like there's there's some type of like. I duNNo. Like there's no based anymore said, that's the problem. There's no baseline and you can't like what you're asking for doesn't exist what you're asking for is people to go hey, comeback from your thing and please understand nobody wants to understand each either side. So for better or worse, you can't just say there's no comments that you can't ask for people to common sense and you can't ask for people to understand your point of view and the more you do it the more the people do go the opposite way like it's just I listen the thing. The thing is though that I'm going to say about. All of this political stuff I it's like. You're right. Carlos. Is No one is being swayed by the other in any at this point? It's like no matter what Biden or Harris says like they're not GonNa, we're not going to get anybody that's on the red side. The most we can do is get the undecided vote. Over right maybe made I think that that's why it's a strategy for Republicans to be like it's hopeless. Don't even vote for anybody vote for exactly like I talked. One hundred percents strategy again, some trump people though I did see like post and other people like share that posting on social, media tweets and stuff like that that I think went viral people you know and they were like true hardcore trumpy Republican conservative people and they were like after this I'm I will be voting for by kind of thing, and I was like, okay, not that many but like it was also somewhat hopeful to kind of see that I don't know. In incredibly confident. So I I don't believe it..

I started freelance as a copywriter in two thousand fifteen. and. I'm at Chris in a mastermind that was run by Ryan Leveque time, and if you haven't had heavies awesome already know him.

West African regional bloc lifts sanctions against Mali
"Molly and the transition government that has taken over a mixture of military and civilian personnel taking over after the coo of a few weeks back now to express their disapproval for the coup, the West African regional block Echo s imposed economic sanctions. It's now lifted. Those sanctions because of the appointment of a mixed civilian and military transition government. But the political crisis carries on particularly as regards the growing jihadist threat as well. There's all sorts of rumors back and forth about the release of militants and other people from prison. In return, it's hoped for two hostages. One of whom is a French humanitarian, the other whom a senior opposition figure, actually it's not quite clear whether that's happened or not. Andrew Levitch is watching the situation. He is a Mani watch it with the European Council on Foreign Relations asked him first off how the sanctions which have just being lifted, have bean affecting ordinary people in Mali. Phyllis ordinary people. It really depends on what sector you were, and there are many people who commented during son that they weren't particularly affected by sanctions. So it was a bit of a mixed bag for the impact on Mullins. But certainly it does mean that for many people, I think the process of the transitional government can move forward. And there's the less confusion and less back in port between Nikolas and Molly and then course also between the international community in Mali. And what do you think of the end of the set up as it is? Echo have Bean satisfied that there are sort of civilians in government positions, But there's still many, many military people in government positions as well. In terms of the transition government. Do you think they've done a good job? I mean, good figurehead. Is there a mechanism for the handover? Which everyone agrees on? All the truth is that we don't know. Right now. It is still very early on DH as I've written. This transitional process has been steered by the military wanted from the beginning. Embattled change their very song represented in some of the key ministries of transitional government. Of course, the head of the National Committee for the Salvation of the People is still the vice president of the tradition, and the president and prime minister really seem to have been hand cooked by the CNST. That doesn't necessarily mean That the transition won't go smoothly. It's just that what we're seeing now is that the military and the military junta has kept their hand very firmly on this process. And so we're going to have to see what unfolds over the next 18 months. There's a very ambitious set of reforms that have been laid out and the transition government. There are some people in a government very well regarded. But at the same time, apparently some cause to be concerned by how predominantly the winter is featured in this transitional government. Do the military have an incentive to cede power? They say they're going to go do they have an incentive to go? Well, so this is part of the competition because there have been a number of allegations of corruption within the security services wasn't she is? Of course, there have been some reports that The members were very unhappy at this corruption they've promised to fight. Some of the corruption that was alleged against the son of the former president, of course, was in the National Assembly but also was the chair of the National Assembly's Commission on Defense and Security, the transitional president promised in his opening speech as president after he's Forbes oath of office. To combat this corruption, but we're going to have to see if it actually happens in practice. That's when you did the hard part also about the kind of the reports and they are conflicting reports. We should say of the possible release by extremists of two figures, a French aid worker and the leader of the opposition as well, who was taken while campaigning in the Timbuktu area. Would this indicate on opening of relations between the hunter on DH militant forces in the north? What do we read into that? Because that would seem on the face of it to be good news. Certainly thank everyone is hoping that these reports are true and that the two hostages will be released soon. There's been a lot of conflicting information just today and yesterday about What was actually happening. This does seem to mark very significant concession on the part of the government. Of course, these negotiations have been ongoing for years off and on to start and then, of course, policy say they've been going on again off and on since he was kidnapped, So this isn't just something from the hunter. I think we can safely conclude that this wouldn't have gone forward without their approval.

Meeting of last year's restaurants and and peers of isolation and zooms that in person you're one of my first meetings safety and security and I really wanted to stay closed during this dynamic given how busy you've been thus give everyone a background here because I really think through cross. River. Everyone here is going to get a lens of not only the fintech universe and where. We're going in banking what we've come from, but also what has been going on on the ground during the period in helping so many businesses on Main Street get back on their feet again, and that's really why this is such a story around business and building value but also round helping people around a real heartening narrative that I really wanted to to bring out here to. Tell us how the company was founded. In An Giang aid is a quite an unusual and interesting story towns came to be across different, very ginning. Sure. So I don't want to log on the history because I think the more recent stories much more fascinating just trying to help two hundred, thousand small businesses get back on their feet. As, been. Me Crowley the biggest side, my career and I think probably would be the highlight those anybody spuria stage. So something that's we're very proud of York buster the go back in time.

With all the day will undoubtedly the feedback I needed to go back to work I. Think. All my life savings where it's only exhausted it's not a life that was prepared to date or the rest of my life.

A lot of good business lessons and haven't company in the home.

To work on the technology front been trying in in learning about a new trade and look at this you know like some fifteen years later. It's a rejoinder between technology and banking.
A tale of two direct listings
"Hello, and welcome to equity shot are quick hit on breaking news I'm Natasha Mascarenas and today joining me to talk about a tale of not one. But two direct listings on the same Damn Day is Danny Creighton. How are you Danny doing? All right this is exciting. You know we went from a world of no direct listings to an occasional direct listening to multiple direct listings in the same day. So it's an exciting exciting morning. We can finally stop breaking up spotify in slack whenever we say the L word and reinvention Asana, and pollen tear, which are the two news heads we got today it's zoo of curiosities. But lots of great stuff to talk about where where do you WanNa start you WANNA. Start with Asana or palate here. What's more interesting to you I think I have to start with pollen tear and my big question is you've been tracking it through every. You know crazy filing, your high level thought was this a successful debut on the Stock Market for? Today I think it's a definitely a success. You know the stock from January two, thousand, nineteen onwards trading at around five to five, fifty, a share, and then in the last two or three months that price jumped to about nine dollars and sixteen cents as of September first, and so you know when when the reference price came out yesterday from the New York Stock. Exchange which was quoted at seven dollars and twenty five cents. A lot of people were like, wow, that's like a significant drop from nine sixteen like what happened particularly also last week we had the Wall Street Journal reporting they were looking for a ten dollar referenced price. You know none of those numbers were really good but look it's trading. Now it's live as we're. Doing the show, it's ten dollars and sixty one cents a share I'm. So it's better than all the numbers we heard before and it's up fifty percent on day one. So so part of me feels like this reference value was actually chosen precisely to give it a pop on day one you know if they were targeting ten bucks on Day One, this is sort of what they got and so a little bit of a lower reference price might have given them a little bit more of A. Psychological boost on on day one. So I, I think overall to success. Do you. Can you talk me a little bit about how we're trying to value the company right now I feel like I'm seeing a bunch of different numbers out there. Do we have an understanding of its fully diluted market value? We do there's still a little bit abate mostly because Peletier gives multiple numbers for the number of care. So it gives us one point six, billion shares outstanding two point one fully diluted two point one billion fully diluted than two point five billion fully fully fully diluted and so. I would say that its current share price, we would call it around twenty, four, billion in evaluation, which is an uptick from its its last rounds. Again at you know for a seventeen year old company to have the sort of strong debut on Wall Street I think it's pretty good. All things considered. Okay. Cool. I'll put a pin in Pailin tear, but I do want to talk about their lock-up period later, run me through Asana numbers I. saw it opened at a five point two billion value. Yes it's on a similar story. So yesterday, The New York Stock Exchange released a reference value of twenty one bucks per share. It zoomed straight out onto the public market. So it debuted, it's currently sitting at twenty eight dollars a share up thirty three percent on day one so far it's up to about I. Think it peaked at five point, two billion, and as of now is more like three point five, three point seven, five, billion market CAP. But again, that's actually significantly higher than his last valuation, which was an inlet late twenty, eighteen around one and A. Half billion dollars so either oke across the board I think both of these issues you know there's always a lot of risk drake listings. As you pointed out Natasha there haven't been that many is this sort of a novel mechanism. They're still a little bit unclear and exactly how they work, and so it's great to see again similar to slack spotify you know these are two enterprise. Companies to again totally different from the more consumer is random companies particularly spotify, which has tens of millions of consumers who might be retail investors buying into the stock. Most people haven't used the Sauna and certainly must people haven't used Pailin tear and so to see the kind of strength on the markets and the first day is is enticing for other companies considering the direct listing model. Right There I feel like pollen tears total customer base was what one? Hundred Fifty, company, hundred, twenty-five customers. That's a lot of customers Doing Gospel distanced. Something it's probably my favorite statistic about the company and I think I saw Dan Prime tweeting the other day that you know it's no longer going to be a secret of company. So we can stop calling it as such. This is the end of that right that confrontation about pollen tear for. So long we've been having well I, I will say. This about an hour ago. So may not be true today. A ASANA has an investor relations page like a standard like every company who publicly trades Peletier does not like it actually does not have as as of an hour ago that I looked up I could not find an investor relations page for here, which which tells you everything you need to know about the company I, feel like that is like in a beautiful one sentence or describes his relationship with investors, but but I think you're absolutely right you. Know despite the fact that only one, hundred, twenty, five customers despite the fact that took seventeen years three hundred grew it's growing from seven hundred, forty, three, million in revenue last year in fiscal year twenty, nineteen, it gave a revenue projection for twenty twenty about one point, five, billion to it's a growth company. It's SAS more and more SAS today than it was in the past where it was more services driven. So again, it's a positive story despite all the kerfuffle around its governance the last couple weeks do you Do you feel like the direct listing method might now take on more popularity. I. Mean. Maybe in some way, but can we even is? Is it enough of a success? You'd think that other companies might follow suit now that it's not just spotify that that did this. I think the more the merrier right I think Palentinian particular raised capital round back in. July right which was sort of what I was told from some insiders essentially the IPO that was the IPO and then direct listings just the actual market exchange. So I think we're GONNA see more companies taking this approach of bifurcating the capital, raise the float that you would normally do a IPO and just the actual just GonNa Start. Trading today and you know I think that that allows you more time to create the right narrative the right story of and also separates what is a a pretty intense kind of crisis driven process the road show getting the company ready the SEC filings separating out at out you don't put all your eggs in one basket. You can do it in stages and I think more and more companies undertake that approach going forward. My question to is and I'm sure our listeners are curious is with all direct listings. There's no shares offered by the company when the when it debuts and so when we see these prices I, guess how much of them are they vanity metrics much of their HABITA- goals, how important are they for us to care about and think about? I wanted to be precise. So there are no new shares offered by the company. So there's no dilutive in an IPO generally have fifteen, maybe twenty percent new shares offered to the public. There are no new shares but many of the insiders have to pay taxes capital gains they actually do have to sell shares. So you know so far this morning already thirty five, million shares of have already been traded and We have on Pailin tear thirty, two, hundred, and thirty million. Shares sold today, right? So already, there's a market, there's clearly tens of millions of shares being sold. So these prices are real or Israel as any other IPO in which people are you know figuring out what's going to happen? You know the next checkpoint for both of these companies is gonNA come in a couple of weeks when they report their next quarterly earnings and I think by then you'll start to see the analysts get comfortable the companies understand the next steps and what's happening after. And you're speaking with Dustin Moskovitz later today the founder of Asana. So any questions on that? You can kind of tease out right now. Well, I was told. The pure folks. About our stock imagery because apparently no longer has sideburns to. Join, the Line of people that complain but it's like you know there's the old line about taking a haircut. Up Thirty, five percents of they actually gained hair on the market today speak. Clearly. sideburns maybe somewhere else. But? No I. THINK WE'RE GONNA be really interested because some unique company in which its founders, Dustin Moskovitz who Justin Rosenstein, who both met each other at facebook actually majority of the company outright right. We just never see or very rarely see tech companies where the founding to CEO's and and COO own like outright majority like not just a majority of the voting because of class, a class B shares but they just outright own about thirty two percent of the company I believe doesn't owns thirty six. Percent of the company outright and just knowns around sixteen point, one percent and so to me like I'm just curious because it's just a different path for a company it was a slower growth company capital much more efficiently grew much more methodically and the founders sort of maintained ownership over time in a way that most other founders do not think the other. The other thing to put out here is Asana has no lockup though the similar to spotify Ed to black as listing all the shares are available for trade to anyone. Who any insider anyone who owns a share of on this morning can put it on the market and sell it Here is the complete opposite pallares pioneering this new kind of fusion of the IPO and the direct listing one would argue maybe the worst of both of those processes but actually a direct listing with a lockup and so only roughly twenty eight to twenty nine percent of pollen. Tear shares are even available for sale at all with the rest in lockup and market standoff agreements that will expire over. The next calendar year. So you know there's a lot more to wait on right. There's not as much liquidity with Pallares could actually harm the stock price. They might be a little bit inflated right now because there's limited number of shares available for trade, we'll have to watch and see but again, it'll be interesting to see if other companies start to do a directing the lockup because clearly Palin tear has not suffered tremendously using this model. So again, another tool in the tool chest and uber do something similar with lock-up period. mean. They did like all IPO's. Underwriter from a bank, they have lockups in place mostly to make sure that there's not a mass rush to the exit. They don't want hundreds of millions of shares at any price willing to be sold. They WANNA, kinda manager coming out because they're putting oftentimes their own money up through the green shoe at stake, and so again, that's what made direct listings unique is that there wasn't this lockup employees are free to do on day one through whatever they don't have to wait six months as is customary. So again, we'll see kind of where the the system lies in the future. As you know, the New York Stock Exchange also got approval to do a direct. Listening with a capital fundraise so we've gone from this world of like there's an IPO and that's the only way to go public to. You can do a direct listing, a direct listening with a lockup, a direct listening without lockup address listening lock-up in a capital fundraise like you can do anything you want. You know it's it's the it's the Netflix of going public. So to speak I, see the headline now airbnb goes public through a through a pollen tear style direct listing. It's just going to happen and it's going to be horrible but we will be back here to talk about it as always every shareholder gets a free party house for one night so. That'll be the new innovation going on there, but but that's a sonnet that is Pelham Tear Ford they an and we'll have more to come in the next week.
What Does A Healthy Rainforest Sound Like?
"Today we're speaking with Sarah, Seti about ecosystem health monitoring using sound. But before we dig into it, let's first look at one traditional method for evaluating the health of an ecosystem. Say you're interested in measuring bird biodiversity. For instance, you might use the point count method where you stand outside for hours on end with a lot of patience and a talented pair of ears. Every single bud you have a closing will you see visually united down what species that was what time you saw it? You kind of repeat that thing over the twenty, four hours a day different house at different locations it's. A super thorough process for monitoring ecosystem health, but incredibly tedious. So Sarah and his colleagues thought you know with all this modern technology, we have sensors, wireless networks. Solar panels there has to be a more efficient way to do this. Can we get something this? So approximately as good as this kind of data, but is completely yours mason methods, recorders uploading audio to the internet straight from the field allowing them to potentially track ecosystem health. In real time, they've set up this acoustic monitoring network in Borneo part of the safe project which records audio continuously, and it is a staggering amount of data. About seventeen thousand dollars so far from the network seventeen thousand. One seven zero. Gosh but it's not just background noise housed in those seventeen thousand hours is a treasure trove of. Impossible for us, mere humans to listen through. But fortunately, the folks Google have figured out a way to sort through all that audio Sarah and his team turned to Google's set a massive data set of sounds that was developed using machine learning Odier says done is it has labeled data for. kind of almost every type of sound that you can imagine that being an so from that a cannon knows the amongst all dog box. There is something that is consistent about old dogs that makes it dog and so it knows the this is one fingerprint, and then amongst all of gloss smashing into, it knows that says finding things the kind of we as humans perceptually consistent in touch the sound. And then fixing them down to one type of fingerprint taking Google Technology, they applied it to their forest recordings, training their machine to create an audio fingerprint a way to kind of identify that forest brew, it sound, and the algorithm they've developed can potentially predict important indicators of a forest health like habitat quality and biodiversity based on it soundscape alone, and it didn't just work in one particular kind of Forest Sarah and his co authors analyzed the audio recordings of forests around. The world they published their findings this summer in proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences What did you and your team show with these audio recordings beyond the fact that yes, the technology worked, what did it reveal about the character and what's happening in these forests? What you see quite nicely full out from all of this is we looked at really Clinton is diurnal patterns so that so of how they annoy a different in how odier consistently follows the same kind of trajectory. Fingerprints when you can start see West season change in weather day. So how evolve through the day as the sun comes off goes down and how that changes the species communities of licensing. That's lovely because we think about days and years and months mostly in relation to light like the sun coming up the sun coming down. Yeah. But you're saying there's like a rise and fall of sound exactly throughout the twenty four hour day that you. You measure? Yeah. Exactly. Unto the point where you can and we did this analysis within the papers that you can just take random piece of audio and you can gas with pretty good accuracy. Our the rodeos recorded that again, is questionable. What's what's the point in time I recall it Kinda. Just shows you the amount of information that's like temporary coded in this audio as well, and you can guess what month is recorded from so. We're GONNA actually listen to some of the sounds that your team has recorded from the safe acoustics website, acoustic dot, safe project, dot net. So these recordings they're all the all uploaded like wirelessly. Yeah. Wow Cova did not live right now, but they would normally be recorded in real time and uploaded. So you'd be able to listen to the forest sounds like an all these different locations right now. So, this very mood setting. The rain at night in an old growth forest. In Borneo. Yeah. He spent some nights under a tent in these conditions. Yeah. I mean this kind of rain is like Gold Senate because most of the time spent doing fieldwork sweating. So when the rain comes in, it's Nicer Wendy and COO. Yeah Music
Sheryl Sandberg On Facebook and Elections
"Last week John spoke with Facebook Coo Sheryl Sandberg Zoom Call, and we've got their conversation for you as an extended show today. John Obviously people know Sandberg as Facebook, Coo. But what else should they know about her? She's very well known in the tech industry, but also in in circles of leadership in advocacy for women in leadership minorities, leadership But yeah, the most visible role she plays as the number two to mark facebook in that has been enrolled. That's been developing over more than a decade and prior to that, she was a in early employee at Google and played role in the Clinton administration as well. Of course, there's been a lot going on facebook and we've reported on it along the way, but they're kind of always as. So. Why talk to San Merck now it's been particularly busy summer and there was a lot to talk about on the call. You know you've had this advertising boycott. You've had a lot more questions about their willingness to police hate speech and and make sure that civil rights are being protected on the platform You've also had this run up to the election and a lot of focus on small business and what they can do during a pandemic both to stop the spread of misinformation and help small business stay afloat. Cheryl's also well known for her foundation Leinen, and at the time that we talked, it was a black women's payday and Kamala Harris had just been tapped as the vice presidential candidate for Joe Biden. Leinen had just done this study that pointed out some things that are fairly obvious. But maybe we didn't realize how cute the problems really are, and that was related to advancement opportunities for minority women in Business both leadership management opportunities just their ability to move forward in their careers. Here's what she told us the data's incredible right now, men are doing a lot to men are doing an average of fifty hours a week of childcare and housework. That's something. We've never ever seen before women doing an average of seventy one. And Black Women and women of color doing even more that GOP is twenty one hours and single mothers, many of whom are of color but single mothers of all backgrounds are doing twice as many hours per week caring for elderly or sick relatives as well and doing a great majority of childcare and we know that all of these numbers hit women who were core hit poor families harder than wealthier families across the board. But even amongst the elite, what you almost always see is the average woman even if she's working full-time is doing a lot more in the home than the average man and that is a big part of what happens to us in the workforce. Until we get to a quality in the home, we're never getting to a quality in the workplace and that has become even more urgent with coronavirus. These are all important issues to the Wall Street Journal, we cover these things all the time we've been covering them aggressively and comprehensively, but we could only manage to get so much in today's episode. So with the issue at hand is clearly. The election and facebook's huge role to play. They're given what happened in two, thousand, sixteen and expectations in the twenty twenty and that's the part of the conversation we wanted to share with listeners today. Thanks John. A couple of things. We should note here this was a video call. So it's got that feel to it and it was recorded last week we've got that conversation after the break. Robotics, artificial intelligence augmented reality. The future is here listen to tomorrow today with the Wall Street Journal's future of everything the podcast that takes you to the frontlines of science and tech and shows you what's coming next. Look ahead. What do you hear? The future of everything from the Wall Street Journal Subscribe Wherever you get your podcasts. I want to set the context of you know of the problems and our criticisms aimed at your company, not just Sheryl Sandberg the executive, but the user of facebook is well I I. I have to assume that you're not just running a company that you're using the product. The company faces a Lotta Chris the you know. The the frustration about incentivizing the you know spreading misinformation allegedly incentivizing that extremely provocative in hateful speech that that gets through and get seen sometimes gets pushed up in our news feeds. The suspicion facebook is still a place for unwholesome characters and actors can manipulate the system in use misinformation to get results that they're looking for etc.. Nah Not. Not so much yet about the solutions that you guys have put in place in the learnings but how do you feel today about facebook is a place against the backdrop of those criticisms so we do face a lot of those criticisms and anytime you have a platform as large as ours you know three billion plus people on it many many of them daily. We have huge responsibility. And I think that is a responsibility that we really had to grow into. When I look at this election, we are a different company than we were in twenty sixteen and we are going into this election in a very different place in touches on all of the issues that you you're talking about. So let's go back to answer your question to twenty sixteen if you think about the election in two, thousand sixteen. We obviously had systems in place to defend against attacks from other states. But what those normally or thought of what we thought of them I think everyone of them was. People with hacking steal your data, remember the DNC emails remember Sony. That was basically what state actors did, and we've had very good systems in place in great defenses there what we completely missed in two thousand sixteen was not going in and stealing your stuff. But was going in and writing stuff. Fake host trying to get audiences to believe things in ways that you were representing. That's what happened with Russian interference and we completely missed it. So did the FBI. So did every government of the world? That is just not true when you think about the election in twenty eighteen and you think about being election today. We now understand this threat and are deeply engaged in working on it, but we're also not on our own homeland security has a department on miss the FBI has a task force on this in two thousand sixteen we call these groups coordinated inauthentic behaviour. So coordinated authentic like we saw the Russian fake posts in twenty sixteen, we took down networks we'd never heard of it twenty seventeen we took down one. In. The last year we took down over fifty. We now do these. So often at people used to write stories, we've Allah publicly. No one even does does that mean we're going to catch every single thing I will never claim that we will always have every single thing the services big. But does that mean we're in a very different place going into this election Absolutely. And one retake really seriously. We're also trying to get even more proactive on the good like on facebook there's things they're stopping the bad stopping the hate stopping interference with there's also promoting the good at, and that's something that I care a lot about mark as a lot of Bob. So we want yesterday. So it's perfectly timely to talk to you about it, our new voter information center and what that Information Center is a one stop shop where you can go to get accurate information on this election. That's never been more important registering to vote who's eligible that stuff's always hard. But in this election with corona virus and holes potentially closed getting accurate information is even more important. So We'd put this out. It's modeled on our coronavirus center where we put out very definitive information really helped people get the right answers. Now anytime people post about voting on facebook working a link to this center. We're also trying to be as ambitious as we can. I'm a woman I'm I'm owning the word ambitious, but it's ambition by my company. To Register people. So in the last two elections, we registered two million people to vote. which is very large, but we've put out pretty audacious goal that we're GONNA try to help register four million people for this election cycle, which I think would make it the largest effort of its kind by were invasion and were really. We're really proud of that really excited about it. So we I sit here John Taking, you take the criticism when we deserve it very seriously. We take our responsibility very seriously atop to show work every day trying to stop anything bad we gotTA learn quickly bad will always try to get ahead but also trying to use our platform in our services for the good. What do you do as the user? Something on facebook doesn't along there. Do you just pull the red phone out and make a phone call or are you pensive about that and thinking about emits broader context at it needs the nuance as market said it's very hard. To directly police the content and and just hit the button? Yes. So look it is hard to directly police the content. We know that it's very hard to pull heat down. It's very hard to find it and identified. That's why we've invested so much think our standards are the highest not the lowest I think our enforcements the best, but that doesn't make it perfect. You know as a user I actually don't remember seeing something that violated our policies and most people have not most people hear about it or it gets pulled into press and they see it now. I've certainly seen things I. Disagree with I have some family members whose political views I do not share. You know I have some ice stuff about fuck I disagree with. But in terms of my actual experience of seeing real hate yes I would pull I. Don't have a bat phone, but I would definitely take a screen shot in forwarded. Personally, referred infant I haven't had that experience or know how many people actually do see content that violates the rules is there a way to kind of measure that? Millions of people report content millions of not not all of it is actually violated with our standards but millions of people go through that process. In fact, we released our latest community standards enforcement report, and it gets to exactly what you're asking what that shows. Is All the different kinds of content we take down how much? How much violence? Were Nagasaki and it shows what percentage of it. We took down and found ourselves or someone reported to us. And that's where the progress on hate I think really becomes clear when we first did this report years ago, twenty, four percent of the hate we took down, we found ourselves which meant that seventy, six percent of the time someone had reported it to us. That's not a good experience. Our latest report we put out this week were at ninety, five, ninety, five percent of the hate that we take down we are finding before it's reported. That means five percent of what we take down is still being reported to us, which is still alive on facebook. So we have our work cut out for us, but clearly a significant improvement over twenty four percent just a few years ago and it to really the investments we've made in systems in AI in. Huge teams to monitor that's gotten us. There are your standards tough. Enough I mean that's something that we know is a sticky situation because everybody wants what they find to be offensive police in. As you said, sometimes it borders on my own bias is what I don't WanNa see. But when you look at the standards, where are you guys at particularly because they have in freshly criticized and there's rolling dialogue about whether whether you're going to get tougher? Where are we met? Her students are very tough but they're not as tough as some people would want them to be or they're not as comprehensive as some people would want them to be you know one person's opinion. One person's free expression could be another person's he. We work really hard on these definitions and were very public about the our entire standards are publicly out there including most to the material that the people who use inside their references that were very public about them. You know for the most part, we've always been a very protected society and the criticism has always been on both sides I'll give you an example that was very hot for a while was breastfeeding. We don't do pornography, we don't do breasts. In some parts of the world, a new woman who's naked from the top would be on the front page of every newspaper, and there are people that really believe in breastfeeding. It felt that we were suppressing their free speech because our computer systems were picking up any time. You saw a nipple of any kind even if it was a breastfeeding picture so we've worked more nuance there, but I think over the course of time, people have found us to be very strict on the standards. There are people out there that think are hit standards aren't strong enough. We are continually evaluating them continually making improvements. But I think a lot of people think our standards are too hard and so we try to be as transparent as possible. We try to evolve to meet ongoing things that are things. We'd never heard of no one ever heard of years ago. That are brand new movements that are hateful and there are things that some people find offensive that we do leave up because we think three expression in having that too is critically important in a lot of situations sodden. You're thinking on your role as an information broker during corona virus. How did that? I emerge and how did you deal with that at facebook given? All of the things that the most elite elite medical personnel don't know in yet. Here you are with the responsibility of not disseminating misinformation that may cost people's lives or fan pandemic. So our policy on misinformation is we don't take down we send it to third party fact checkers if it's marked as false or partially false, we dramatically decrease the distribution we market this has been marked false or partially falls and we linked to more information that often can tell the whole side of the story. Even, before Corona virus, we had an exception to that, which is information that was going to cause imminent harm and that policy really came out of other parts of the world. Misinformation was leading to death or imminent harm. The Corona virus we took the stand to things we said we're not going to have information that will lead to imminent harm. And we're going to rely on health experts. We are not decided there was no decision made by your marker anyone on our team. This is true about coronavirus and this is not because we're not experts but we partnered from the beginning with local health authorities the CDC the. H. Show the you know the health ministers in different countries to make sure that we were taking down misinformation. No matter who posted it up would also give very accurate information out and I think sometimes in these discussions, we forget that there are two sides. Of course, we need to take down at least marcus false things that are harmful, but we also have to use our services. To, get out the information people need. So governments like the UK, government local governments when they needed to get messages to their citizens, they've turned on us and we've been I think a very effective way of getting messages out. Interested. In in several high profile advertisers including some that I shot from it said, we're gonNA take a break and it wasn't just facebook it with social media have companies come back and what what are those conversations and like I know. The effect on the bottom line may not be what well understood you do rely. So heavily on smaller and middle sized companies for revenue but but it was a huge moment, a big headline where where are you guys at conversations are they back? So advertisers are starting to come back not but a good number are coming back have come back in process. Look those conversations were really hard John because normally. If someone is boycotting you or is protesting you want you to do a whatever a is in. You don't want to do it. That's not the case at all here the boycotters and the advertisers didn't want hate on facebook and we don't want this book Sosa. I think we had completely aligned goals and we have challenges in enforcing that. So again, we just released our enforcement report. We were at eighty nine percent of finding hate we take down ourselves. Now we're up to ninety five. That's an improvement and we know we have we have further to go. We also do have some notice agreement with people on what hate is we tend to take a broader swath of allowing some information that we think it's free expression to stay on so that people can have dialogue but in terms of hate, I think the real issue is that there's a fundamental misunderstanding of our service out there that we need to do a better job correcting we don't want. Hey. We don't benefit from hey, we don't profit from hey users don't want to see it. Consumers don't WANNA. See it. Advertisers don't want to be next to it. So the the narrative of facebook is leaving pay because they WANNA profit for. That's just just you talked about voters earlier and the initiatives that you're putting your proactively being part of a solution is what I hear you saying. But Marquez said very recently with this electric this unprecedented situation and I'm I'm guessing given your. Your half glass full mentality it's an opportunity but what's at stake here for facebook I? Mean we're all GonNa Blaine facebook if things go wrong and a certain candidate decides to use the platform and you're not taking down information with speed or at all is it a noble no-win situation here or what's at stake for this platforms ability to prove its productive place in this discussion? So we all know that there's a lot at stake for the selection full stop. There's more concern in confusion about how to register to vote what is valid I think there's more concern around misinformation around any kind of coordinated attacks. I think we're going into this election in a totally different place than twenty sixteen and interestingly, I think our track record in twenty eighteen was actually fairly good when people talk about things facebook missed in an election getting upset at us for things that are almost always talking about twenty sixteen you almost never hear about twenty eighteen and there have been hundreds of elections around the world and to look our job is to get people accurate information to be proactive. We are being much more proactive around. Pushing out information in this election and we have or have been before, and that is modeled on what we did with Toronto virus. We are taking that approach doing everything to get rid of the bad. We are doing everything to get in front of people the accurate information as well. And then we want to make sure that people can use the prop. One thing that's worth really thinking about is how many small people small people running for smaller offices. Are Using our platform provisionally when we're in social distancing and can't campaign. That's right. So how do you advertise to? No one's ever heard of me. I'm running for State Senate or I'm running for school board and I want to do it cheaply and efficiently we allow that to happen and we're proud of that role replied. There are you prepared I mean thinking about four more years of questions regarding how quickly you should be policing the president and his tweets given the thus far has a track record that trump is definitely more aggressive with platform Vice President Biden ever has been he trump wins. You're already in a in a in a situation where you guys are have been accused of dragging your feet on or taking a less aggressive stance against him. How do you think about that in a world where we might see four more years of that? It's our. It's our job to have clear and consistent rules. That, we apply in a fair way globally and I know we are very focused that we should be very focused on this election. There are important elections all over the world with people on different sides, and so we have experienced not just in the US cycle, but obviously the hundreds of elections that have happened since since last US cycle and we do we. Get accused from conservatives of being anti-conservative. They look it. Awesome. A see liberal silicon, Valley company I mean, I've been very affiliated Democrat. I remain unaffiliated Democrat other people look at us and they say we're not going far enough and our answer is going to be very clear about what our rules are and working apply them as even handed away as possible we also. Recognize that there should be limits to our power to decide what stays up in. Probably one of the most important things that's going to happen in the upcoming twelve months is the rollout of our content for which we've announced but has not yet come together to play. So for the first time, there's GonNa be a possibility that if you either have something taken down. And you think that's unfair or you take it down or you WanNa leave up in either direction, you can appeal it to the content board in your case much like the court right they'll have more than they can but they'll try to hear the big months. Someone else will decide and that board is independent does not report to mark does not report to me. Were also working with governments around the world. We think government has a very big role to play. Wouldn't it be good if governments to find hate rather than private companies would you be good if governments defined what is a political ad? Not Private companies were working hard to make sure that there are checks and balances and that the government's role is really important not just here around the world. You're not just the Democrat I mean you're you're a friend of the president presidential candidate on the Democratic ticket at an I I don't know the. Friendship, but definitely, it's been noted that the two of you have relationship you've been support I'm wondering if you're kind of jaw drops a little bit about the delicate role that you need to play his business leader given facebook's place in society if you're running Ben and Jerry's, which is much smaller if you're running. Patagonia. If you were running for Motor Company, you probably feel a little bit more free an mistaken to be supportive and to give the porch that you want to feel it all that your your ability to help is checked by your role I mean, my day job is facebook and my nights on Facebook, and then you know I work on my foundation as well, and so it is not my job to be very active in the political process and I've chosen a career that keeps me in business. So I don't wake up in the morning. You know what should I be doing politics 'cause I wake up in the morning with a very big job for facebook I. think that's consistent with business leaders. You know as a woman and as a woman who's long fought for the role of women to have more to celebrate ambition to celebrate what we're reaching for the highest office I'm thrilled to see a woman about to be nominated a woman of color about to be nominated and I spoke out anatomy horse I would do. Of course, I would do that and my foundation has done that as well. Do need to think twice about how supportive I mean it it's not a heavy lifting to be supportive publicly. Meaning you don't have to put in a lot of hours, but like running a news organization, I mean it kind of is a proxy for what facebook has become what we think of as a neutral platform even well, I've said, we're GONNA work with anyone who wins for us. So when I'm asked when you work with trump, if he wins the election, will you work with Biden if he sorry president trump if he wins the election we work with Vice, President Biden. Of course, we don't get to pick. Citizens elect their governments and we work with them, and we work with all over the world and we have to be willing and able to do that. Would you work for President Biden if there was a president Biden, you know I have a long decided I had my time. I worked at the Treasury Department under President Clinton and it was an amazing opportunity. What about the open seat in California right now not interested at all I mean. I really love my job and I really have so much respect for mark and my colleagues. Every day is not easy I don't expect anyone feel sorry for me or any of us we have great opportunities big role to play. We have serious responsibility to get this election right? We have serious responsibility to get hate and you know misogyny off the platform. against, wake up every business, I feel lucky to have this opportunity and I feel lucky to work for someone who is strong and has such conditions as mark. Are you having a guest one final question is the enormity of that task of getting it right. Your back and forth about what that looks like all day. But getting it right as a business challenge. Also, when I say this, I wonder if you are amazed at the trajectory of the importance of this as a public trust, almost as a is an institution and we aren't just considering a business but has a responsibility to society. Is there one? That outweighs the other giving you have shareholders, others, or is there is there a way to balance those two things at the same time? These things that people think are in conflict sometimes, but I really don't think they are we need people to trust our service we need people to trust that we're GONNA make content decisions not for profit on either side. But for the right for the right reasons and to doing the things that need our responsibility to protect elections takedown hit, they don't trade off against the business. They're important to drive the business. Now, there is a resource tradeoff rehiring engineer. We can put them on an ad program to build rags ads we can put them on safety we can put them on security. Of course, we have resource trade-offs, research trips of my time reserves tradeoffs mark if you look at how do our jobs and you compare it to for years ago, Mark Myself All of our senior leaders Chris Cox who just came back. Incredible. Chief Product Officer Mike Shrimp for our incredible. CTO We all spend a lot more of our time on the protection of the community. Then we did five years ago but I think that is super important and for a while we were playing catch up and I think all of these things work together. There's not a trade offs. We have to absolutely meet our responsibility and build our business and without meeting our responsibility, we're not going to build Turkishness. Kyi No your plane to grab people from.

Blizzard employees complain of pay disparities amid record earnings for parent company Activision
"And Overwatch, even putting up some records studying profits over the past few years, But it sounds like they still have a pretty toxic work environment. Robbie what's going on over at Blizzard? Yeah, so they have just recently boasted record results again for the second year in a row at the same time that employees have been protesting pay. In equality. So ah ah few weeks ago, a bunch of blizzard employees basically put together a anonymous spreadsheet, putting what they made each O R what their salary was. Then that got out, Tio believe might have been Bloomberg, who did the original report but essentially people at Blizzard, which is one of the most prolific game developers off our time. Are making well under industry standard despite record profits, and this is the second year in a row, right because last year when blizzard laid off I think it it was was somewhere somewhere around around 1/3. 1/3. Of Of their their overall overall workforce. workforce. When When they they did did that that very very next next week, week, they they told told investors. investors. This This has has been been our our best best year year in history when it comes to profits, so insect a year in a row Blizzards like Guess what we're making the most money we've ever made, while also treating our employees like crap. This is a continual story within the video game. Development like Ecosystem is that these companies continually not only underpaying but have He's gross toxic work environments while making boo coo bucks hand over fist barrels of cash, and they can't seem to pay these people. And what's even worse is that a lot of these studios are located in places that are like California, the Seattle area like these very expensive places to live and their underpaying their people. Turnover rates within this industry are so high careers last 2 to 4 years before people get sober and out. They don't want to do it anymore. But because it's such a lucrative industry, there's always gonna be someone else looking for their next big shot. It's one of the reasons that it that it's that It's been so tough for the gaming industry to be able to unionize, and there's been more and more pushes for it. But nothing seems to Teo really materialize out of it. I think, James, if you're like, if you're the CEO of a company, do you believe that if you're making more money as a CEO, that you should be automatically paying your people more, even if they're doing the same jobs me personally. Yes, I do Feel that way. I feel the same way too. Like you got to pay. You gotta pay your staff. You gotta pay your people in your employees What they're worth. If you're not paying them what they're worth. They're not gonna continue to do the good work. We're gonna go somewhere else and help your competition. Be more successful. So, yeah, I feel like as a CEO, You gotta pay your employees like inappropriate rate. Yeah. Unfortunately, I think this will be a continuing trend. You know, even though activation Activision Blizzard merged over 10 years ago. Only in the past couple of years, the sort of higher ups who were there with blizzard from the beginning like Mike more hime. They've been stepping down and Activision has slowly been filling those blizzard spots with Activision spots and from a lot of stories that we've heard from inside the industry from inside the company. That's where this change has sort of been happening cause blizzard used to be such a beloved company. And I think it's just very, very slowly been rotting from the inside out. Thanks to the influence ofthe a company like Activision, he would have just back out no longer support right Blizzard. Now you're actually hurting the employee. I'm conflicted because it's not just hurting the CEO's at the top. All Durga to do was say our profits are down. Let's cut more from heads. You got you alright looking for a super cheap yet fun game recommendation to play that
Virtual Reality with LIV - AJ Shewki, Co-founder, CEO & COO At LIV
"You for the people watching and listening to the podcast just tell a little bit about yourself in your history and and how you came about to be sitting in front of us today. Yeah sure So I'm doctor doom on the janitor at live that means I do everything code related. Making sure everything's cleaned. All the cogs are running the way they should. Have, a background competitive gaming. Starting Gaming General I used to play competitive is back. Then there wasn't really a professional seeing the way it is today. By compete in the Marvel Capcom primarily. But also Liberal Street fighter in the Lord warcraft and it's marvel rotgut name Doctor Doom from because my main character was doom a bit in with live we start living two thousand and sixteen the idea back in the beginning was that we wanted to host a show on twitch where we would play Vr game so we will play them competitively we kinda wanted to show people what a future of sports could look like when everyone and their mother has VR L. And that quickly result in realizing that there aren't any good tools out there for content creators to create content in the first place. So that's really what we started out. We start at as tools provider building, initially tools for content creators to create what we call. I'm mixture to capture piggyback off the Work Steam Vr and the folks at fantastic contraption with north, way games. and. Then we built an estimate for developers allow their games to be streamed through live or with live or rather captured with lived and now we're working on some other stuff on the platform side I. Think we'll get into a little bit later. Let's pretty much else. We've been live since March two, thousand, eighteen we've driven about a billion and. A half star videos, craters video so far. So many of our crazy gone from being a really small youtube in twitch to having really sizeable audiences and our next step here's trying to figure out what's what's next for live streaming for us. We people are now watching these videos, how do we or creators go further and do more with those eyeballs? It's like the stuck standard of of how you know they say the Kasich. Company, right it's like you have a problem with pining you personally. So you go ahead and fix it, and now you vote if he's into fixing it and you. Were sure. It's funny because we we started out we were actually it was Kinda hard to convince people coming, changed our workflow in use a new tool and similar to develop as why would they integrate eight? We had no proof points are start was actually streaming ourselves on twitch and for a while I would say. For a couple of months where the biggest streaming in VR on twitch, which doesn't say much time because they were like five streamers, right? Maybe sensory. with a source twenty people concurrence currency on the viewership side. but that was sort of the way that we got into streamers by saying look we have some really cool tech. We're using ourselves because we think it's great content. If you're interested hop into our discord which has been huge for us, and we should maybe talk a little bit about this Gordon sort of. Marketing and that's how we grew organically. We've spend zero dollars in marketing today. So it's all really been organic and through the community. Yeah let's let's chat about discord I. Mean It's a pretty it's pretty unlikely for traditional papal. Eight. Like even to push that further, I read an article today about how added as using up as one of the main marketing going forward. So yeah, let us know a bit. It'd be. Discussed and build community. So I think one thing I don't want to do is which I see a lot of people do this sort of think back retrospectively in the make it sound like it was his plan genius idea because it wasn't. It was really more about we are on dischord as gamers and our friends that are underscored, and so let's just. Multiple. Our internal comes on the score to be closer to the platform. We use everyday anyways that was the initial idea, and so we have public channels and private Chelsea district private for the company public for the community I think what we see with discord is a sort of a I think people. Now, this kind of love micro-communities 'cause places like facebook and instagram are so they're so noisy and they're so saturated. The people are looking for a more meaningful connection and this could kind of gives you that discord gives you really two things gives you that high rate rate rate of intimacy, but then also gives you. This it makes you feel less like a company makes you feel like a person or a group of friends. And I think that's the place where especially. More corporate comes very corporate at all live. We're very approachable were considered as. The approachable darling in the community But I think there's a place for companies sort of lower that barrier of this is an objective company that has an official support line something that's a little bit more human I think that works really well for marketing nowadays, people look for that authenticity.

I think some of them are legitimate getting A. Lot of the deals, but they say we are sharing this with interested parties on purpose to get you the numbers you want right really have to share that information with third parties. They don't have to give you a list here. Exact people were doing because it's changing all the time and some of them might be you know very bonafide companies.

And they say they've also partnered with mailing lists firms so that when folks click on a Lincoln newsletter and go to website a cookie can be set computer containing that MD five check some for their email address on their computer.

Recipe edition, Joshua Owens-Baigler
"Name's Josh Aaron Spangler. Iraq founder of Angelina restaurant and Tilson. And today I'm going to show about signature dishes temporary tomatoes with actually pester. It's a super simple recipe to make it. Takes a little bit of time, but it's something that you can. Join and go back to go along the ingredients a quite flexible, so feel free to use whatever you having a Lotta what I'm going to start with start with the tomatoes. So, we're going to dry tomatoes very slowly. Low, temper off, so we're going to start a hundred degrees. Stop Prohibiting. For the tomatoes look for good quality heritage tomato with thick skin. We're GONNA look for about five to seven cents meters across GonNa. CUT THEM IN HALF WITH AIN'T GONNA. Drizzle a little bit of sugar. That salt time secret ingredient in the restaurant news does she granules? Get those that's amazing, little bit of time in the spice, splendor and then they. As well, just a little bit like seasoning. One sprint coo over the tomatoes, and we placed them at a preheated of two hundred degrees as I, said previously. We leave those for an hour. And then offer an hour. We turned down to about seventy five degrees, and we leave that for four or five hours. I'm going to move on to how you make the Pesto so again. This is super flexible. Don't panic! There's one ingredient missing substitutive something similar. It's really from thing to make so we start with some newly put capers then add salted anchovies. We add a big handful of parsley when I mentioned, these ingredients are like to go by large handful all in equal parts and keep tasting as you go along together to how you like him a handful of. A handful of activities, a big handful of Parsley, big handful of mint. If you have a couple of she leaves, if not comply with any green hub to nine suppliers, colic, some salt and pepper, a little touch of olive oil and the show chef secret. If outs, ice keeps you keep a beautiful green color. Now I recommend trying to keep your Pesto as dry as possible, so you're gonNA have to have a spatula to have this going to be quite difficult to get going in the blender, but the hard work has really really worth it once you've made that. I would put aside at the Fridge and get your favorite book out rate for three hours white for those to cook. About half an hour before you're ready, we're GONNA. Make ourselves a really simple type per. And, that's with two hundred and fifty grams off cornflour or Either a walk just the same five hundred grams preferably of zero zero pasta flour. If no plane flying will work, and then lead of Soda Walter Secret Hair has gotten. As cold as you can't put it in the fridge for a couple of hours, we'll put it in the freeze of ten minutes, and the code is the better result you're going to get in. A Pan on the side can have a source preferably with a thick bottom and we're going to start. Some flour oil to fry that's. Where aiming for about one sixty five degrees, which means that if you're doing a small source panel I recommend taking the oil two hundred ninety degrees that way when you drop the tomatoes and the temperature of the oil withdraw. They're gonNA cook really nicely when she reached about hundred and eighty degrees. You've gotta work quite quickly so you the oil we're going to take those beautiful Tamalpais dry out the other. We're GONNA dipped in the batter, and then straight into the oil and we're GONNA flip them. I would say often about ten seconds. Every now and again. I should be ready in about two minutes. If you touch the players, a pair of metal tongues, you'll see that he starts to get crispy outside on. That signifies that they're ready to think cooked already, so don't worry about it. Smells is just worry about how crispy batter as
Are Banks Safe?
"Month they had several plus members. Share an article with me. That was published in the Atlantic titled Becoming Bank Collapse. The subtitle was the US. Banking System could be on the cusp of calamity this time. We might not be able to save it. Article was written by Frank Partnoy. He's a law professor at UC Berkeley. That's a pretty ominous title. We WanNa look at the article as well as the state of US banks and banks around the world. Should we be worried given the pandemic is the banking system poised to collapse. I was especially interested in the article, because it came out right after I had increased my allocation to stocks and added a preferred stock et after the money for the rest of US plus model portfolios. The particular preferred stock after us by shares has about twenty six percent allocated to banks and banks are on the cusp of this calamity that does not bode well for preferred stocks. In the article, Partnoy is particularly worried about banks exposures to an esoteric security. A collateralized loan, obligation or see Elo. We Discussed Sea Ellos back in episode two six in May twenty eighteen. collateralized loan obligations are asset backed securities issued by special purpose vehicles or s peeves. The S P V purchases leveraged loans which are non investment grade bank loans that have been syndicated. A, bank will make a loan to a Non Investment Grade Company, a higher risk company and then sell that loan into the marketplace. Many of those purchasers are Clo's is over a trillion dollars of leveraged loans outstanding. and. Most are held as part of these collateralized loan obligation structures. The way it works. Is that s? Cells, debt and equity securities that comprise to see yellow. Those securities are backed or collateralized by the leveraged loans. The CEELO has multiple layers tranches that are sold separately. The debt layers are rated by credit quality, so the senior layer is triple A.. There are lower rated debt layers known as mezzanine layers, and then there's an equity layer which is unrated. The payments on the underlying leverage loans, those payments are pooled together and flow in order. The first payments go to the senior AAA layer then to the lower rated layers, and then finally to the equity layer. That is known as they waterfall. The debt tranches are over collateralized debt ACL Oh might have issued five hundred million dollars in debt securities as part of the L O that are backed by six hundred and twenty five Million Dollars Worth of leveraged loans with the Additional One, hundred, twenty, five million in loans funded from selling the equity trunch. Each Cielo about one hundred and fifty to two hundred and twenty-five loans. And because the leverage loans, themselves are floating rate notes. Their interest rates will fluctuate as short term. Interest rates change the debt tranches within a cll are also floating rate, so there's some protection if interest rates rise. Now because of this waterfall structure, the equity tranches takes the first losses, then the lower rated debt tranches, and finally if it gets to that this senior triple, a. rated debt trench suffered losses. That hasn't happened before. The SNP does a global Cielo report looking at default rates. From Nineteen ninety-six to twenty, eight eighteen overall default rates for CEELO's was zero point five percent. The worst vintage year was sea ellos issued in two thousand eight. there. The default rate was one point seven percent. There have been no defaults in CEELO's issued between two thousand, nine and two thousand eighteen. And from that one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, two thousand eighteen period, there has never been a default for the triple eight trunch, and only one default for the AA trunch. Now as you know, we are in a pandemic and defaults within the High Yield Bond and leveraged loan space is increasing. Fitch estimates the twelve month default on leveraged loans is four percent, and that more than two hundred billion dollars of leveraged loans will default through year end twenty, twenty one. Adequate to a two year cumulative default rate of fifteen percent. Just because leverage loans are defaulting doesn't mean all the different tranches of a coo is experiencing a default. So a report on the wall, Street Journal from mid May that showed about ten percent of Cielo managers have been diverting cash flow away from equity investors and going to the debt tranches, which means there have been default that are starting to impact that junior equity trunch. What is different from this cycle, though is leveraged, loans are more risky and we discussed that in episode to a six. The covenants on these loans are less restrictive. The credit quality is lower. The financials are weaker and so we should expect defaults to increase. Question is will see a low default and other defaults and other loans impact banks to where we should be worried about our savings or investments that we might have in banks. In banks securities. Including their common stock and their preferred stock.

I came over to Atlantic records online I've been at Atlantic records since two thousand four Julie with something that is not on your kind of official bio that we should know about you I. Don't think I officially. put down. That I am a mom with two kids by that is probably my most favorite part of my life is that I am a twenty year old and a sixteen year old. That's great I want to kind of just start with the elephant in the room that we're all dealing with which is how to run companies amid stay global pandemic, the music industry is interesting, because in some ways you know, it seems like you have a lot of talented people who are at home, and a moment of reflection in some sorts and I'm sure they'll be a lot of good hopefully music to come out with it. But how are you thinking about this time? So for the artists that have been able to continue to give us, music is been business as usual in terms of. Thinking of Creative Marketing and promotional. For these artists rollout there songs, obviously facing different challenges, which is. Creation of music video photo shoots. We've sent artist green screens. We've sent them ring lights, and so been really just trying to keep everybody focused on the fact that the world is listening to music right now to help through such a terrible time, and so many artists are giving great music to continue out there. They're a bunch of artists that still need to get into a studio. Need a collaboration and those artists. Were just trying to be really good partners and friends to down and tell them that you know. Hey, it's okay. Take this time, maybe just right in a notebook and try to just be you know thoughtful, and in good partners to our artists that are staring at the fact that they may not be able to tour.

How can I help you and in really like? Let them see that they can. Individually email may call me facetime with me and I'm right there in the. The canoe with them.
"We are going to start with some earnings. and honestly, this is one of those situations where you put earnings in air quotes. Because we're talking about groupon and the first quarter results. They actually weren't as bad as wall. Street was fearing. groupon still lost a lot of money and shares down about ten percent today. Yeah, it was not a great quarter for groupon. The shares the sales fell thirty five percent. Gross profit was down thirty four percent they laid off or furloughed about twenty seven hundred employees out of their sixty three hundred employees, and they also have a new CEO and coo left, so it's been a wild couple of months for your opponent hasn't been great. I'm glad you mentioned the management change because that was something I. SORTA noticed this morning when I was reading about this quarterly report and one of the statements was from interim CEO Aaron Cooper Aaron. Cooper's Bennett groupon for a decade or so, but I was like well. Wait a minute. What's the interim and yeah, as you mentioned a couple of months ago? The board basically said that the CEO the chief operating officer and the. Oh, yeah you. You're both Outta here. So. I'm not even sure where the silver lining is right now with group on because on top of everything else last week they executed the dreaded reverse stock split, and in this case it was a one for twenty. Stock splits so for those unfamiliar. Regular stock split is you sometimes companies will come out and say hit a two one split. If you own it for every one share you own your now going to have to, but of course the prices cut in half the reverse split is the opposite because they're trying to boost their stock price, and so they came out and said forever twenty shares you own. You'RE GONNA. Get One so I mean the management shake-up. The fact that Aaron Cooper has been there a decade and still has the interim tag on his CEO Title I. Don't Know Him, but I think it'd be a little miffed if that were the case. You have to wonder what the board is up to there. And then you know you and I were talking about this earlier today. Maria I. Mean this is we're in the middle of a pandemic. I think of group on I know. They have several business lines, but I think of them as more of like the experience company for a long time that's been their marketing like. Hey, go out and take a hot air balloon ride and we're going to get you a discount on that and that sort of thing and. Know again. It's not all of their business, but they are really taking a hit in this environment. Yeah, I think that the experiences is really where they get their bread and butter. That's what they're known for they are trying to look they break out their revenues in terms of their local and their travel revenue travel revenues less than ten percent local revenues, almost ninety one percent of that revenue, but a good chunk of local revenues experiences within that local space and so i. don't think that. That will bounce back anytime soon. I guess the only silver lining would be that as state start reopening, people and companies will be so desperate for anyone to come. have really good deals in the TRI news utilized. groupon and people will try to utilize it if they don't have. That steady income that they're used to, but it's still not a great outlook for groupon. It's a good point and I think that. One of the things they talk about active customer base. It'll be interesting to see if they're able to grow that in the next three to six months. I'm wondering if you think I mean. They have between North America where they have about twenty five million active customers and an international of of North America another sixteen million, so they got about forty forty, two million active customers. This is not a big company. The market cap is about seven hundred fifty million dollars. Do you think? Do. You think someone's going to swoop in and by group on just so they can get that active customer base, or do you think that there are still enough question marks that? That's not in the cards right now I. think it would be kind of a smart acquisition for some people to get you that bigger customer base, and for people to continue to implement deals. Everyone everyone. I love a good deal. I know a lot of people who have a good deal so having those options are pretty smart. If you're a big retailer or you want exposure into at a growing customer base of people who are generally live in cities, like deals like experiences I feel like it's pretty uh smart to grow that customer base if you need to.

Learn how to shoot a pissed off, so you know being able to kind of meet people where they are and help them learn. New Skills was really fun, but the same time. It was so clear to me that. Those officers were living with so much more than just obesity and trouble sleeping. They were living with anxiety and depression and worry and guilt and. All the things that humans experience and it was just kind of sitting there and my training as a health coach really didn't give me the tools to address those things so I went back to school, and got a masters in counseling, so that I could get into those deeper sorts of issues with folks, and it's been just so rewarding percents to be able to kind of take both sides of health What are you doing on the behavioral side? In terms of lifestyle choices and out. Adherent to your treatment plans in taking your medication and things like that, but also why in what? What is the underlying factor of? Depression or anxiety or family conflict? Are you know other things going on that lead to the decisions that affect your health? Yeah so cool, so you got this this masters in public health education and you said this doesn't really do it i. want to dig deeper help. These people more their stressed. There's there's a lot here and you went to go. Get Your Masters and mental health, and it unlocked a lot of things and you know I. It looks and sounds like you did the right thing lease I mean now you're you're you're part of this this really unique company addressing a lot of these issues at scale. Tell me about how it happened and and folks Leeson. We're having some fun connecting before the podcast that I shared my story with their vow had a couple offers the people wanting to buy outcomes rocket before it was, it was it was a business profitable business and the pressures that I got at home, saying no to those offers. Lisa I. WanNa Hear Your Story. We were saving it here for for us to share it with the listeners to tell me how synchronous help happened and and what exactly you guys are doing. The add value to the healthcare ecosystem sure. So similar to your experience, so one of my co are three of us. Co Founders of synchronised Health Katie, Moore. Guy Barnard, Myself Katie and I are both mental health. Clinicians report together for about ten years and several years ago, we started a treatment center and the first sort of level of programming that we provided as. Intensive outpatient, so we had people with us in our services in our program for nine hours a week and we would have them for. One to four months, and even folks who had been with us for nine hours a week would still come in and say I forgot or I was too stressed or I was triggered to use the skills that we're learning while we're here and then have them show up when I meet them in real life, and so we were thinking okay. They don't need clinical criteria for a higher level of care. We're. We're not seeing the improvement that we WANNA see. We could keep doing more of the everything we were doing. Was Evidence based and supported by research? So it's not like you know what we were doing was in any way deficient. It just wasn't heading them at the right time and place when they really needed it,

A Harrowing Colonoscopy
"You had your first homicide pins extra last week which I'm going to say was a glittering affair. Yes what you time you did. Proud is what I would say and make see the one listeners. Famous aprons are in so much agreement with the inbox has been overloaded with praise for you. Tell me darling and well the first one. I'm going to read it email. I'm GonNa read is from Jamie. He says his been touched by your colonoscopy story. So no wait till you hear about this so here we go from Jamie. Hi Folks Loving the podcast folks and the Bantu you have between you. I laughed at the colonoscopy stories. I remember my inexperienced back in my early twenty s like most young gay men. I was terrified of what was looking up there. I can trace. The day of the procedure arrived quickly after an exhausting day. Previous drinking four liters of toxic soap water. I didn't know how to do that. That seems weird. Maybe that was just his. I normally love sedation as well. But this day I drove to the hospital not realizing I owed requi- one and the nurse asking me who was collecting me after I. The nurse asked if anyone was clean after mid sedation. I wake up and also look up seeing my name on the TV. And the and of the doctor massaging my belly together camera to go round the Kink in my colon I subsequently asked where they recording it for me memorabilia. It's like when you get off a ride thought park which is a picture of you. GonNa Screen you. Can you can pay twenty quid to keep it. S post-recovery lamb bed dreaming of the Cavalry Dinner. I promised myself and thinking we will get to the hospital without someone collecting me. I'd go for soup after colonoscopy. Wouldn't you know two full for Hood Italy easier so that I can maybe smooth jam I jumped? I jumped up off wolfing. My tea and toast was dressed in waiting to navigate past the nurses station but I got caught my code. He's jailbreak matron came around the corner asking where I was going quickly replied looking down. The corridor pasta to random man shouted coo mark then shuffling by the desk in towards the man saying this random person was my brother. The nurse I kept going never looks back so he escaped under anaesthetic with a stranger. He had just pretended he needed a stranger and then used him to get past the Matrix. Next up was the crossing of the Joe Carry Trae. He's still going through the Capri here. Of course the joke carries driving in my head. He's on the run but you're right. You're right. He's probably driving a Jew carriageway to Knicks Crossing of cash. Way To get food in a local pub which I would hope to sober me up enough to drive post anesthetic to drive. Oh my well. Needless to say I am alive today. He says well. I think we should say we did not. We are laughing at this story but we absolutely do not command this gentleman for being so close with his hail. Colonoscopy sources of anecdotes for podcasts own colonoscopy is for life not for Christmas I feel a lot feels appropriate here Jamie says I would love to leave review but alas I do not use apple well okay. What do t shirt for you? Then I'd have to say I didn't wasn't much praised for me in that it was all about.

Apple COO Jeff Williams says he's 'optimistic' about Apple
"Apple Chief Operating Officer Jeff. Williams didn't interview with Fox business on Thursday headlines like the one from apple insiders seized on a couple of words uttered by Williams. Optimistic was one. Bullish was another while he did say those words. He said a lot more about not knowing when things would get better. Long-haul is a term. He used two or three times. At least the use of the term bullish has one or two problems. I have with the Apple. Insider Headline Apple's Jeff Williams bullish about post corona virus economic recovery in us. The other problem I have with the headline there is no post. Corona Virus Post lockdown shore. Postbag seen you betcha but we don't live in a post measles world. It's not as big a problem as it used to be but it didn't just go away Kobe from now on. Hopefully it can be treated and mitigated. But there's no post to wet. That may seem nitpicky but it actually strikes me as important God and the devil in the details which makes details important and kind of crowded. I know we want hope. We need realism. We can have both one gets the sense that Jeff Williams does have both though who wants to hear realism in the morning. Hopefully you're listening to this in the afternoon anyway apple. Ceo Jeff Williams is optimistic about recovery for apple and the US economy long-term pulling a few quotes from the interview. I am optimistic as you look around. You see the resilience of the people working through this challenging time and when I take a look inside about bowl I couldn't be more encouraged. You know. He continued during the last quarter. We even though these are challenging times. We launched three new products. And I feel great about the economy in the long haul. And it's just a matter of getting from here to there. Ask when no no no nope nope it's hard to make a prediction on exactly when and how will roll out. Said the O but I feel great about the long haul. You know our supply chain to running largely at capacity and people are continuing to work. He continued. I couldn't be prouder of the apple team. And how resourceful they've been. You'll see US opening retail stores in the coming weeks and like I said we're bullish in the long haul seems apple insider could could've worked long haul into a headline that's especially true given Mr Williams having worked and then to almost every sentence
"coo" Discussed on Coo Coo for Who: A Doctor Who Podcast
"I am your host Molly Southgate with MS or foetal up aw he defying before he knew she loved it. She was GONNA come back act pilot the pilot. I knew it I like it. I'm like they can't they don't do what they do one offs and like monster the week but that one felt you don't have your first episode do that especially a new companion and the companion get so attached to someone. She's never met that doesn't happen while it's also a muffin kind of thing if you look at his history with Dr who <hes> he plants things and and waits and I made a mistake on the last episode and said that that was his last one he wrote this one right yes he did write this remotely right wrote the Christmas Broadway like he would want to have as many more right right to finish it out. Oh my gosh sure just from episode standpoint. It was awesome. It was thought cyberman coming in attacking like it was so there was so much going on going up to level five zero seven evidently that in in the last one I mean all of that was just before cool episode but holy cow at young girl is such a good actress. Oh yes everybody we agree everybody and I loved Nardi Yard all and his and his new women win friend and and I love that the two of them I think he likes us like she's only human short as <hes> but I love that they're sort of now the the parents of all these kids and he's like takes their hands on these come on. Let's go get our Jenner. All it just kills me. He was waiting at the door anymore my heart I know your friends will come back. He's like no they won't and they won't and it breaks my heart so bad and him and he when when Bill said to a doctor has to go back and get when they've got a problem with it. He said he can't if he if he takes it all away from there. They're all going to die. NAAR at all is their only hope we'll so where no more no more Nardo no more bill now technically could come back technically technically could Nardo technically of the doctor at some point could back there because it would be a way to stop a Cyberman invasion whom and pick up Nordahl and these people and get them off of this because they said this whole thing is dying. This thing is in trouble. I could see them doing <unk> something with potentially that scene where a lot of live out there live once again bill sacrificed herself and we knew she would I mean there was that that allows it. I tried but she said for that whole episode she kept saying I don't want to I live like this. This isn't living I can't be I don't want everyone to hate me for the rest of my life and Oh my God oh my God when they showed when you saw bill in the beginning yeah and then she saw herself as and she's like I can't and she was like getting angry <hes> and sad but the but it sound excuse Siberian it sounded anger dimension off the side of the barn and and the doctor later when she's years she's like of course I'm going to be angry and he's like you can't be angry. Greeny more euro cyberman like kill everybody and she blew out the side of the barn and then he's like the barn had an issue aren't hello problem later. Nargis like everything's fine radio looks like the. The Barn is gone all right but they're seeing though where where she says I'm going with. I'm staying with the doctor and the nominal like whenever you have a friendship that's three are- it's always challenging because it's always to against what you know like it's hard to it's hard to always gay together and for we are as and so Naro doll you just see that pain of I don't get to go with you like you. Guys are doing this thing and like I said I wanna be the one I wanNA stay behind and they're like no no no. You need to go do this and now he's got an now. He's law watch yeah but he's he thinks that the time like you're casting me away like you voted me off the island run survivor and so here are the two of them in and bill says it's okay you'll <hes> now we could get that in the next episode we could get the the doctors going back and rescuing the people on level five or seven I but but wait so when he when they're saying that and then <hes> I'm I'm GonNa get the line wrong but but bill says something like you know you'll be able to move on you know like you'll table to get past it and then he turns like I never will. Oh No that was well. She said she he was like bill easily. I don't say she said you'll find the word you'll find the where any when he left. He's like he's be no. You and you can just see you know you're wrong. I never will offer easy. Thank shattered me so there. There's doctor who comics right yeah and there was a series done. That's Dr Who and Star Trek Crossover that was really good a pack this actually potentially sets that story up <hes> because in that story so if if the doctor goes back to rescue level 507 on and they get the people off of there and then they push instead of putting the thing in reverse they push that that ship into the black hole that gets them out of there that could be what we're going to see in the Christmas want right in the Star Trek doctor who crossover the Cyberman were on a ship that went through a black hole and they ran into the board and the board tried to assimilate them and the doctor goes blows through two stop that what a crazy idea now. They're not obviously going to do that but it really does kind of set that up so it could be that would be a way for him to save and then take myrtle and the woman in the kids would have somewhere safe and at that point neuronal would have been there for years and he knew like this is my family is the time line was crazy but if they pushed that through the black hole it would eliminate eh but it wouldn't eliminate the Cyberman he would. He might say it does but it doesn't because they still exist but it might eliminate a cyberman threat. That's really threatening well. Oh he also said he didn't say oh the Cyberman he said what was the planet in the last episode. He said this was like the modeling Man Mohan D._A._S.. Mandis how he said he's like oats. The MANDIS Cyberman Cyberman so that implies there are different types of Cyberman from different planets different countries different approach with every country has their own side of. I think that's the but yes yes. I thought that the Montas Cyberman meant that they had originated on Mandis ned that's why they look like that and then they evolve hall and as time rate had Arma yeah where they're Mandis Cyberman here because it's not mandis well and then chester made them into that they said Mondale version mine recommendation or something but but yeah they evolved moved into being that like armor like you know she was one of the bill was one of the crude listen. They said she was the first one right 'cause like they had tried and tried and I think they said that she was like the first one to get it to work. She was the first. I upgrade yeah yeah and actually if you think about it the master creating that type of cyber man would make sense because well no it doesn't because this master the guy saw the other Cyberman in the timeline where he was with David tennant so but he did like he went back to create that original type and maybe he had to because that's where you were you get those upgrades from or he was doing it was part of his plan to scare the crap out of the doctor light. Look what they are and you know how quickly they're going to adapt. Oh yeah so go what are just GonNa say there. There were a few similarities to bill crappy ending with. It's very similar like hers in Clara's like they weren't the same they will very well. Well also it was they each <hes> they both sacrifice themselves they both and then after after that after they were all dead the doctor found away like they were saved after that the they both found someone to travel the universe and clear as caught in a particular moment in time which is different bill now is like she's essentially like a God. She can travel everywhere. Her end is not real anymore. She's not human. I loved that she can go human again. That was really cool and they're like I can by making ally couldn't the doctor then. How is she more powerful than the doctor different? She's like a cheese yet like you had said she's on. She's more godlike. He's more like a human God because of how you memories she is another four. I think more what she did was after bill had died. She went up to her. She said she's like a living dead person. That would be a Zombie. She is kind of that was crazy when she saw bills body Fall Cyberman and the bill saying it was really cool and that was reality that was a reality between those two character yeah and like she kissed her in was like. Does that feel real if you're not dead it's almost like a and I bet if we went back and watch the first episode with doctors explaining the pilot. I wonder if that creature lives on a different plane and that's why bill now lives on the other point yeah yes 'cause they were sending they were sending our back to another allows had she that bill tried to put in her request for who he regenerates into like she's at the drive-thru. She's like you know what I like. Women closer to my own age. I'm just saying I'm just hooked me up. Just like regulate that direction like women that are in my age range was really cute you okay let's built in just killed me but my gosh the doctor. The master thing killed me me too. Oh we should die before he heard about. He tried to hit on himself. Grow Whoa Oh yeah it's so wrong and you know missy Sane it's wrong. It's really really this guy is like the Woodward because he's like he's like being like sexes trying to like <unk> are sociopath like trying to head himself. I'll tell you this was exactly what you wanted for missy because it got redemption but at the same time you didn't have a whole thing thing of her being redeemed you saw her flipping back and forth data date over got to note he didn't know and she left him there but she was doing what she did earlier. I'm setting everything all right. I'm going to go. Over here in that was an amazing scene when she stabbed yes herself and when he shot her now you know he said don't even bother regenerating a hitch with a full blast and she was laughing last. We saw I'm telling you we don't know she's dead. Eye doctor could be dead in that field after that talk about full blast and he's back and regenerating right she. Why couldn't the mastery generate now when we get a MRI regeneration or would we get and we get anything my Gosh could also get something that truly is not worse than in God? We didn't think there was anything weird. We're not yeah and then this guy came Obama where like okay solving weirder than messy now. If you're thinking that there's going to be one who's even planning his even works throwback to happen here. The master head the Van Dyke Yeah the beard original master that we saw the old series of doctor whom had that same than hilarious if he wasn't thinking that he just had like that natural and then all of a sudden he was like all our so funny. Oh Oh no but you're saying there's a throwback a Hal. I Dr so Nardo. I thought it was old. Nergal it go. I knew that's what I said. On the last episode I I had heard there was another doctor and I knew that I eight forgotten until last episode that that guy was going to be here. I didn't know he was going to be in this episode. When he came walking up? I saw the silhouette I knew immediately. It's the first doctor I'm not just a doctor. I am a M._d.. Daffy says I'm near original and what's interesting is that actor is the same actor that played him on time and space the B._B._C. movie about about the origins of Doctor. I left that one yeah. He's the one that played that actor. I can't think of anybody's name right now. I know people are going like please. I can't think my brain is bushy but it's I. I can't think after the played the original doctor I can't think the after playing in check because it might be the guy from Harry Potter to Google for some reason I'm thinking it's the guy play Harry Potter Janitor Guy Yeah not the guy that played a reporter with the cat. Yes okay yeah remember him then he was the one didn't as cat get killed in sorry spoiler spoilers for Harry Potter. This isn't about airy potter so yeah just now. I'm waiting for the Christmas. I want you know a serious I haven't it was like to be continued this Christmas while the almost regenerated like three times in this one the next one he's going to be eggshells. I want.
"coo" Discussed on Coo Coo for Who: A Doctor Who Podcast
"He started regenerating no so I think that was like a spoiler are far like like a preview. There's the next episode which is the last of the season and in the Christmas episode which I believe they said that those are called episodes zero of what it's supposed to be zero of eleven yeah but she doesn't make an appearance this until episode one of eleven what so and if I remember right after Dr to might have multiple doctors in zero dollars no but I if I remember right a certain one that I'm really waiting for if there is this one now I'm not saying I'm not saying but I had no clue about any of this yeah. I had no clue everyone I know climate. Honestly I was so spoiler free. I honestly believed achieved that bill would be with our with Dr Yeah. I can't remember why don't know how they're going to be able to save her but I can't imagine her not being on it next season. That's so sad aw that he's GonNa have to kill her. I become like you have to kill. It'd be one of the hardest I think that would be the hardest one for Gosh Yeah 'cause like rose. He did something to make her happy Amelia it was she got transported to another time and they were happy together. We've been tragic endings. I mean he's never kill one house. Killing immersing he'll get around misery Roy and and this was Stephen off its last episode wasn't who wrote the last episode the next to mark data's. I didn't want to go out with a bang this well. I love how they've. Event throwing back yeah each episode. They've been throwing back over here anger too yeah and he looks like almost man out his jacket. It's all very down the interesting if you think about it wasn't in the when he was on the ship was when he was regenerating and we saw that in what was it the last episode we kept saying Wise's jacking all tattered laws. Did that happen in a different time stream where when he starts regenerate I was so confused by that well. Are you confused by yourself. I am so we'll find out. Yes I think we should I think we should go right now and it's because I gotta gotTa see the next one yeah. I think this is the last one he did but maybe I'm wrong. We can correct it in the next up so I just I you know there's a lot of people don't like him. Kabali no Mafa all right and to me though he's written some of my favorite episodes i. I don't think there's anyone that I think is terrible. It's like I was talking to somebody who said they don't like Jim. No and I love the chimney episodes so I'm looking forward to him. Taking you know what people people get too obsessed about that stuff. This was an amazing episode. Yes he relies on a few tropes. He actually made fun of it. One of the trucks that people don't like about Moffitt is that the he uses the term doctor who he uses it too much here he completely met at it and flat. It was great yeah. Oh Yeah I remember did he write that one that Smith episode when they kept talking. They kept calling him Dr. Who probably I remember there was one it was hilarious? It was a really good episode. You know I'm not saying to see him. Go only only because I always like to see where things go but I'm sorry to see him go. This was amazing yeah. I'm different top episodes chairman bill yeah bill off as soon as I five I five minutes episode. The bullet goes through a chest and she's got this whole when I was like I don't know yeah the only time I've seen the whole like that is on exiles. Remember when Lily Tomlin got shot as she had her nightgown <unk> out and then she revealed that she does Dan all your spoilers okay all.
"coo" Discussed on Coo Coo for Who: A Doctor Who Podcast
"I knew how small self gate and with me as an broke southgate. What do I think this one? I I really enjoyed. I thought it was a little virtually wove it. I thought certain bits were a little hard to get but I liked that. We had classic people showing up. I thought it was fantastic. It wasn't it was kind of a monster. The we are yeah yeah but I really thought the writing was really great and I love the idea that it was playing with the Princess of Mars idea you they all of a sudden ended up on Mars. You know there's a whole certainly pointing out there. I didn't love it <hes>. I thought it was well done. I mean it's not not anything. It's just that that particular story didn't really appealed to me the same <hes> and I have loved the past few episodes so much that I was like my maybe my expectations were a little high of but I was watching a going I wasn't I don't know if it's that I'm not a fan of the Victorian time period. You know like that like I l.. But that's your guy. Maybe it was meant more for you think I really enjoyed it. It wasn't my favorite though and I thought I don't think it was as good as the last few episodes because those were absolutely incredible. It's funny because I I sat here the time watching going. Oh my gosh. This is one of my favorite episodes. Now I do think that part of it also is that was playing with kind of that classic Sifi Comic Book Yourself <hes> like really old school or old doctor who's yeah it'd be and walked younger and I didn't so it could be just that that didn't connect with me the same way but I can understand the nostalgia factor. That's why it was such a big deal looks. They kept bringing back the characters the Alpha Century and on the Ice Warriors. I know about it that I was like. I know that thank I showed it and then he went got your book yeah and then the Alpha Century that was actually you. You're like DOC way. You need to research. That seems like it's important something weird as we were watching that I I was having this weird flashback. I had a toy when I was younger. When I was a kid? It was like a little figure. It wasn't like Star Wars with your he didn't he didn't articulate we'd move yeah. It was a little also the lead soldiers used to be but it looked just like one of these. I wonder if I had I think on some year Dr who toy I think you I think yeah because I did have that's where I recognized it could up. I used to have a couple of Cyberman when I was a real little kid way before I watch Dr who where I got Him who knows coach. You know there are probably robots in in some hobby store that might that I was like oh I want these robots but I used to play with these Cyberman all the time and I swear this creature as soon as I saw like seven this weird flashback and then as it went on I was having I ca- call night. Yeah I remember even like the glasses and everything like something about it. They look like a night in Rotel. Ian Arbor's what it reminded me out so that was Kinda cool <hes> I remember that so I think another reason you might not be connecting is it was it was slightly jarring after the last couple of episodes where we were getting kind of the mythology of the season we didn't get that until the very end would missy showed up. There's IT seemed like like the like that was tacked onto this even though it wasn't you know the deterrent is taking neural there he grabbed missy but that was all all secondary was actually my favorite part right and I think why reacting this way because the last couple especially were building into whatever the big story of the season is and this was aside store. I think we need a normal there to lay. I thought it was interesting how he was another area but I think he would have kind of rounded them out and it would have added different dynamic to once again to me for me. It didn't need him because it was. It's kind of like the classic doctor with his companion it just it really was ringing that it reminded me of like Tom Baker era who it just there was something about it. That was triggering that I think that's why I'm reacting the way I am but I I understand. I think it's because it was a side story yeah but it was so cool when they see the God save the Queen Now's fun. I eat later you figure out that it's all the guys lined up to say. God saved the Queen I loved loved the effect when she would shoot down the soul and they would turn into like balls. They want those pokey ball like when the pope on bad balls debate yeah but like when the when you push the button <unk> on the game pokemon as you push the button on the POK Mon may open up but it just kind of reminded me of that for some really looked like a build it reminded me there was the red wine lacked reminding me of mad balls that I was just like this is that it is so awesome they I did it when she did. The guy just turned into that balls like this is fantastic really cool yeah <hes> my favorite line was when they will one of them was when the doctors like you guys aren't welcome here and not welcome here working and then just leaves like he doesn't follow it up. We're British. We get like he doesn't say anything. He's just not welcome here. We're British and knocks away while though he said something yeah he said something there but it was it was really funny when he he said the thing about being British. Actually that was the other thing <unk> I thought was interesting was the fact that they were Victorian. A bill made that comment about like your head Victorian thinking because of course Victorian yeah but that the dynamic of that like the fact that they set up a table able with chairs to have their T. bright written him. They're sitting here talking about being low on resources yet they have the spread and you're going these guys. They're not in the minehead like Beautiful Pastries Katherine out of the modern but our stones that spelled God saves the they were still owe people they were the redstone owes Odur Saints it was the men were lined up young that would have been really bright color like it would have been so morbid like this it all these years Llanelli see how her brain which corpses yes they got on like wouldn't they like the on lug ground like not standing all remain went okay so so they basically enslave Friday right yeah Baffour as well but he was he had he said though he was doing that he was doing tech vision but when it when that was going on I was thinking before any of this was happening. I thought he can't be only one this can't n._B._A.. Lost in space situation with one robot you know even though he's not robot I get that like an alien and rectal e._R. Right right but I kept thinking. There's gotta be more than when the doctor said why. Why do you think he's here? It's like oh my gosh what is going to be when they open. That's are confident or when they open area and circumference was and we saw I thought this thing is going to come alive. which we saw was just like covering like a gold leaf it when it came alive holy cow? I thought the empress was very cool. Oh I loved her. Once again. She also was super intelligent and stuck to what she knew. It wasn't like you know with the cyberman their control they don't think for themselves. This woman was in charge of this army. She yeah she was here. Like this is what we are. Mrs What we we are doing. The doctor didn't out smarter. The doctor figured out how to work with her which was to be one of the strengths of the series like he's not just. I'M GONNA wipe you out. I thought it was really. Really interesting to watch new home. Maybe realize yes well then when he put them in touch. It reminded me a star Trek when when they first vulcans come to earth and the Vulcans I are like welcome to the universe like you have achieved because it for Star Trek. They had to get off on that. They have a hyper drive. I think it was once. They're off planet with that now. The Galactic Federation wants them to be part of it like you has evolved get off near. Alpha Centauri is like your while you're here welcome. That's why it was so cool and he's like I think we're entering a golden age Martian. Now here's the other thing though I wonder if that will come back at some point because he is now reinvigorated a species right yeah you know what if it comes back to bite them. Do they have to stay could and they ain't kidding Liane bars. They don't have to stay on Mars no dead they said they the living conditions were too hard for them on Mars right but they could now that they have all these other aliens working with them. They could tear format. They could change the landscape bars Mars or it could be what we saw. was you know the relic and those all those creatures are now the Ice Warriors off Mars there somewhere else doing their thing that that's a really cool concept yeah. I thought I've thought they were really great. Bad guys 'cause 'cause like you said they were very intelligent and we weren't though the the great characters and may they was more Englishman. We're more bad had guys <unk> at the the doctor said they can kill often entire species and then cry about a flower dying in the same breath like yes so they they could go either way and he said you never know what you're gonNA. Get with them right and so they're not necessarily good guys. They're good sally is it's just like once again back to star trek like humans or the Klingons where in the original series the Klingons are just bad guys as the series went on you get into next generation. You're like wait a minute. This is what they're species believes in how they live their lives if they're not just out there destroying things things to say they're good guys bad guys because the the worst of them was the earthly right. Oh yeah one of team is just trying to steal and he got his office. May other guys love yeah. The other guy was enjoy a horrid yeah. He was killed all his men. Oh yeah he was ready to kill all them and it was all about him. It was he was awful and he would showed that the one man was a traitor and a coward right and that's that's the other thing the other Englishman were not the bad guy yeah what from the perspective of the Ice Warriors sure they would be and from the perspective of Englishman the Ice Warriors where the bad ones right which is what makes it a real classic who story where the doctors in between and rather than solving it with violence. He's he's solving the problem. That's what he has trouble with dollar snap because they saw everything violence and he's like okay. I'm going to stand up to you. Eh fight you but with guys like this. It's not his it's up to him to destroy life. That's not what he's about a doctor right yeah so I just that's once again why I really enjoyed it but I totally understand why it didn't connect for you to. I think that I thought it was good. I it was it was just yes. She loved it. Why are you saying then connect her like it wasn't my favorite because the others were just like so I like it just incredible in mythology and that's my favorite part right but for a monster of the week and also coming down from that? I thought it was a really fun really good story so I think we're getting close. Why no we are because we're this was episode nine? Yes we have. I believe the re more. Yes the Christmas one. Is that right where they're just reward Christmas when the third one I think the Christmas. Thomason would be a third long okay so get new doctors starting next week. We will well if it real time yeah next week when we're recording but but I'm talking for what what we have left to the season we know what's coming at the end but we don't know are the next three on to involve the mythology. Are we gonNA have just a lot of mythology in the last one and then the next two are kind the monster of the week or leading their water. We're going to get my guess is we're going to kind of a to partner for these next to that are going to wrap up. The theology part of it at the Christmas will be a big blow out that ends the doctors time. I'm I'm not ready yeah. We don't talk about that yet as excited. I as I am for Jody I am. I am so devastated to say goodbye to Peter Because I have absolutely love and law his run okay so <unk> favourite Peter Moment of this episode when so build whole time was talking like Oh. That's it's like the thing doesn't move like it. Oh my night. He's like you'll be tracked. Internal winter like frozen the movie like our friends. I love the thought of Bill and the Dr Bernard all civilian watching frozen together..
"coo" Discussed on Coo Coo for Who: A Doctor Who Podcast
"I'm your host small. I saw getting with men Martha Southgate and Rob Softies Okay when his Grace Chris I thought it was it was funny like they had a lot of really funny but then I wanted to cry my freaking head off when I realized that we're about to lose Peter. Oh yeah like we are way too close to losing. Peter comply close. I was also freaking out with Nardo was coughing. Oh my gosh I was like no no no and then when you always going to do that was like they're all GonNa die well. He'll he saved he could save him. He gave him those parts like he said I used secondhand lung so or whatever so yeah what at the same time our human lungs so either infection took it turned into Goo. We don't know that by the time the doctor gets in there that he's not going to be turned to do come on now. He was not do it the guy he wasn't Jedi. The one guy was like coughing coughing coughing and then Goo Nardo is like cotton coughing coughing and we saw him on the floor like gu-guy didn't turn into Gu. I think his alien parts. He's only a couple of feet away from him right now that peters in that room raise the Turkish doesn't infiltration system cured that it seems to me that may that but if it was already an him he can't but it can prevent it from hurting anybody else probably if it's yeah filtration system coughing Tartus but he can go in and he can bring him back because because he knows he can replace his parts right as long as he is in Gouyette yeah but he's close by so I mean he may be able to get to him the other guy for a little while. I love hanging in a way that you saw playing his legs twitching in that they could take nerd. All out here was a gift from river. I know I don't want to not GonNa do that to us. They would never take her the gift from river away okay. I don't know I truly <hes> I hope they don't yeah this was really tense episode when you when you have the doomsday clock going and that and it got one minute away and then it was a minute forty or it was it was twenty seconds away in one month that is terribly yeah. I love how this played out where they the military thought it was a military thing because there are on the brink of war but that really had nothing to do with it. <hes> it was here's and not Syria creatures. They were just viewing time that creatures are just going. Oh I see an opportunity here right now so they're going to need us they had and we can plato all of human history and figured out the if they appear this moment. This is when humanity is most vulnerable and we'll say and consent yet. So how bizarre is this consent. They gather like you have to consent with love. He consented with strategy. That's not enough. You can send out of fear that's not enough but bill consented with log but not love for them. No you have to. I think it bent love for them. They she was saying like I love the doctor so much I could sir from that place and that place from a place of love. It doesn't mean love for them but I just wonder why that matter or we're gonNA find out maybe they're hippies and how it turns navy. The hippie aliens among love for them because of asked asked to turn to love for them for them rule the way. They said they were GonNa rule and the actor was right. He's like this is when you when you make them consent out of love it slavery. You're you're gonNA enslave this race and make them love you so in order to control them. It was a pre crazy heady one. I kept thinking that the pyramid was going to be like in despicable me and they're going to walk up and it would be like a balloon and I thought it would be like a Hologram. Just drop the whole they mentioned it stimulate action are do they solve the simulation. I didn't think they did well. I'm not convinced they're not still in one. I'm not either they were doing the simulation thing originally because they were trying to like they were trying to show how they've simulated every piece of human history and they're like time traveling. I think at least that's what I believe the people were doing that. That's what I was. I don't understand it the end of the last episode they didn't rose solve that they just uncovered it but here they said they mentioned it but does that mean they're still living in a simulation could be that it could have been something that the beginning bill might have said something that explained that a way that I sure didn't catch it. Why wear fell to fill taken on in the next episode right? Maybe they say like maybe they figure out that they are in a simulation or something. I don't ah well I mean the doctor knew obviously what if they're in assimilation then maybe this is simulation that he's now taking control of allowing them to get to this point and then when he pulls the rug out from under it which the doctor usually does you'll find out nautilus fine like all of them will be fooled by these like I had to bring us to the to this point. I had to give them this win in order to break simulation so maybe that's what we're leading to a three part. <hes> this is not the beginning of a two parter. So why was that first part. They're not obviously the third. They're not gonNA let us at yeah is the one that resolves sad orange that exactly I agree yeah. We're kind of feeling like this was the important story. Maybe this wasn't maybe this was all. This is set up for him to resolve the simulation like first one was the most important it was pivotal how they figured out about the simulate moment this one might be setting up for his death for why he regenerates why I just think so okay blindness thing the the bill bill having to choose to choose him over the rest of the world narrowed all being compromised. There's a lot going on there that makes. Makes me think this is <hes> foundation. They're building. This is a setup for we will be what is GONNA come on to because I loved Peter Cappelli. I love him so much weight for the do doctor first year her it because it was more Matt Smith Scripts. I feel like we got cheated. Out of our capacity tie yeah yeah we may have gotten cheated out of our Matt Smith Time because if those stories story for Matt Smith and Clara I mean great I loved them but we are now fully immersed in the Peter Cappelli era. I wish we'd had a good solid three years of hit of scripts for him yeah I I actually think that <hes> I heard it somewhere that the original scripts were are actually written format Smith and then he left as the doctor and then they hired Peter Crepaldi instead to do those but they only changed like I could tell they change stuff like about the eyebrows things they added stuff with. Those were really his stories and also the Clare was supposed to leave an end she signed back God and then she decided to leave in real life and I think that affected thanks to last season Peterka policies. Oh yes season really Peterka. Policies is is hilarious. Dialogue was so funny in this one interesting Oh my gosh when when an and I loved era call my Gosh if she agrees and she joined this little trio and make them a quartet because because oh my gosh her with Nardo Hall and bill all of is so long road he's he's like Oh yes and now he's like. I'll do this blow up. The thing saved the world then you love a major crush on exactly while and he said to her he's like your. I want you to come with me you know. What did he say during remember that yeah? What are you doing after yeah exactly like Oh? Please take her with that. Other guy like yeah I was yeah when when he walked out and she said Oh thank God and he goes oh no. I know it's a doctor and he said he said it's it. You know eyebrows you confuse that thing talking about the hardest darnall next goes. Oh Oh yeah this is hard got him and he's he's. Oh Gosh it was so funny. I mean just all of his funny moments like. I said it was ten yeah the when he couldn't see see the dial. I'm like yeah. Let's kill in I was like is he gonNA regenerate here. I know he doesn't but I was. I was still thinking that we don't know since we haven't seen it. You know with David tennant. They did the thing where he had the false else. I think it was David. tennant had the false regeneration they could easily have him start at any point here where you're like Oh this is it and it stops. We know there's a few episodes before. He really doesn't is it but he could. He could become unstable the vet that he went blind leading to that's what I'm saying. I really think that they're saying this as a foundation should be able to go blind like Oklahoma Sonic couldn't. Wouldn't work those tumblers odile <hes>. I think that he worked it but it didn't do anything. I thought that's I'm like he was planning it at it. I don't know that it could do that if it had to to see if he has to. It could tell him maybe what the numbers were supposed to be but he'd have to still manually put them in. I have a weird theory okay. Is he still a time Lord. Yes are you positive time work. He went blind. He's he's not being able to work his sonic things. Maybe that's just in the simulation. Maybe it's something like this could all be part of the simulation of maybe that maybe that was the clue that it's a simulation as is <music>. Sonic did not open that yeah but he's still a time Lord. There's no question L. K.. Didn't we never saw them strip that from him. He is doing things like a time Lord. He is definitely a time Lord. Okay as trying is decided theory very there. I didn't know what it's going to last that long ago when they were doing the execution missy is that it had to be somebody from that species. He was the one they call yet so unless something really weird happened that we have no clue about earn just pop up on us <music>. He's a.
"coo" Discussed on Coo Coo for Who: A Doctor Who Podcast
"A doctor sees tat episode six extremes the Pope nope urges the doctor to read meritas which contains with deadly Dole. That's the whole description yeah. I'm your host Ma Southgate End with Martha and Rob Southie. This one was I it was right. What a what Masih I know right? It's the most important thing you know I knew it. I kept saying it. I didn't think it was but you are one hundred percent. It was missy which I'll find into Dahbi to see missy comeback run in this one of my favorite characters I love when when the masters shows up and this was a perfect amount of time they had good dialogue together. I love when they all watch US dench of sleep. When I was a little bit tired yeah he's fell asleep? It's like that movie. I love you to death when she keeps trying to keep ways like monopoly. I had a way out of radical headline. Go see that are yeah watch that movie. It's funny. I thought it was really interesting how he it the entire episode played out in an email and how at the end it was revealed that he is the year this entire thing out theo inside of this computer simulation and then he went out. I'm going to do it everyone in a the only thing computer simulation can do. I'm getting e mail this another computer and he emailed it to himself in the real world right right so we see him in the beginning reading that email titled Extremists Yes so I haven't Mushin when it was revealed when 'cause the the one who revealed it to us was narrow. Did you guys suspect anything there. Now at and guess is out to me. Yeah I mean simulation but there there was something no I really thought it was like another portal realm to when they got in. I was like how are they in the Pentagon and then next door was run and I but I was like <unk> with Inland Air Alien Worlds and not our world. It was weird so then when they said Oh it's a simulation. It's it's a Hologram all its virtual reality and importantly it was Hologram of earth specifically like that the scientists at sern in the Hologram figured it out which is why they were going to blow up there part of gas because they've realized they were part of simulation well and they said ad that in the in the show he said <hes> imagine if I if Mario got tired of dying and just deleted himself from the game so all these people that were reading this Veritas toss they were then killing themselves. It was to get them so they all new the truth was that you're in a simulation and so they all get out wanted to get out and the only way to get out is to delete yourself from the simulation. It'd be like any video game character. They suddenly realized wait. I'm a game it's interesting most most shows most Sifi. I've read that tries to that tries to address. This really Kinda simplifies it. This was very complex and it was touching on a couple of really interesting things one is there is a big theory that we are currently us living in a simulation that we live in the Matrix. I don't believe it either. I just taking my head. I know you guys can't see that but I was like with people out there that believe it and there's actually this is what's interesting. There is scientific proof that we are manatt scientific proof that you would go wait we are. It's more like they. They're like this has all the earmarks glitch. If that is actually a glitch that means we're in a simulation and it also might mean that we're thinking in terms of a computer but it might be i. It's just like that whole thing of like we're we're a <hes> a SPEC in God's fingernail or when you're in Alaska idea it's been played out for a million times or we're going to see an alternate reality multi-diverse and they're like bolt went people have when people have deja-vu and they think I've lived this before I've seen this before for whatever in a lot of times people think that that's an example of being an alternate right that's alternate realities. The site is as proof that we're in a simulation but we also we don't well I it's not it wouldn't be computer because we don't have the number thing they said because in this one every single person that's what they use that this is reality though the other thing is certain Israel sern is I do not by seem. It's a science corporation so sern is a very interesting topic in something to look up in. I don't I'm not going career right but they they started the particle particle accelerator reader and when they turned it on people claim everything changed so you know you know the Middle Yeah Yeah. We're made episode of X.. Files not well. What did they call it? What the Mangla Fact Oh yet depends on who which character Mandela effect that was the where people have very disor heads sweat episode memories of things that have happened great examples star wars has a bunch of C.? Three Peo- is solid gold. I remember my toys were solid gold. Everything I know about him salad bowl but if you go back and you look at production things now he's got a silver leg. Its bubbles bizarre solid gold like actually they don't mean that his salary was Sandal. Yeah he's solid. Goes like where you did not have solid gold toys you know in the movie he was all gold in empire strikes back the lower permits legacy is over but but really we all remember him being up on the Internet the pictures of him from Star Wars. He's got silver. If you watch the movie it's silver at least that's what people say I and that's that's an <hes> an easy when the bigger one that everybody's heard of something about this barren stained bears versus Barron Stein Yeah and that whole concept the Mandela Affect started win the particle accelerator went on Sern has no people believe that it ripped a whole through time and space much like Dr who so insert showed up here. I thought how interesting they're playing around with Cernan how interesting that the scientists at certain doc in the simulation figured out it was a simulation yeah. That's really cool. I never I haven't heard of that for that. Laws I've been listening a lot of podcasts about colts and things and when they were gonNA blow themselves off as soon as that guy was assuring him in that room like oh my gosh this cult I didn't know what Sern and then when they returned it was like they're going to kill themselves anything right because it has all of your marks as there was dynamite. At first I saw he ran the white lab coat but my brain was like wait. Is he a doctor. I was like great scientists. Yes l. gnaws like weight wise. The doctor like sitting there drink game with the doctor yet with well. He wasn't with the doctor Nordahl Adore with the docker so confusing so that that was really really interesting stuff that was going. I WanNa talk about my favorite part. Yes what is it was bills date. Yes is it's awesome and they first of all the landlady like you can't have met over the girl and she just assume she's just like yeah I I. I won't pretty pretty sure I'm gonNA unliked a really liked how they handle that because the wounds like it was obviously the bill bill. We know has got experience this. This girl was like I don't know what this isn't bills like right now. It's nothing we're just hanging out that is such a nice gentle way to handle the whole thing for the characters and actors the audience is why should I I want you can thinking Oh my God. I want them to follow him. Yes awesome yeah because the lockdown for Benge night no no but then all these priests city. I see like I'm out partisan issues like what's that noise. Oh it's my pipes and then she goes. Sometimes I yell at them to go in there. Yell at the Doctor For rotator win on a date not the pope come out of my intimate her room like backlit with white so it was like an like fog came on flow those great over the pope showed up this wait you don't do that. He doesn't driver is legit show right. He doesn't time travel yeah. He doesn't travel around visit people in Pope Mobile well. He goes 'cause he was he was trying not to let anyone no he was blind and he's standing at the podium and they're like Oh. The pope what he's right in front of you know his guy. He said he said voters why this is such a big deal. Why didn't the pope just come here and talk to me himself like right right in front of the other one nurdles every good at this what he's like? There's a light it. It's ten feet in front of you coming from the left exactly exactly he kept up. Oh a laptop like he kept trying to make it sound like he's alive everything everywhere he was. I can't believe building. Look at him. Like what is wrong like share that has things yeah yeah. It was funny the whole thing with extremists to another another outside of doctor who thing in the Marvel Universe extremists is is like engineered near mechanics inside of the body so ironman stops wearing a suit at some point and he gets injected with extremists and his suit is actually thought control it comes out of his pours. The Metal Forbes Iron. I remember that actually in in the movies they played around with that a little bit so with the extremist showed about his goggles guy who Aaron God. What's he going for women who says that offer glasses but with showed up on there and the first thing I was like extremes? Are they going to have something in the bloodline or something in extremists means like close to death or something like that. That's something because he was he was using it for the thing. That's it's in his heart. <hes> he switched it out he got rid of that. You put extremists into his body and that's what gives him the power to do this other stuff here once again I was kind of thinking that was it and it was interesting to see how he was blind aligned in all that going through with that while and then he used those thingies from <hes> I think he the gala freon or some stand he stuck him on his tumbles ipod author or like I like up above his is like the most to his temples any put them on and he said this..
"coo" Discussed on Coo Coo for Who: A Doctor Who Podcast
"Dr podcast attack so sinister landlord Liam Moore show's villain her friend's house yes he. I'm your host Molly Self Gaetan with me as Martha Southgate and Rob Southgate and is crazy people stuck in the would what I didn't love it though it was it was not the strongest no it was it was very heavy. Use like very bizarre to it was it was is a bit far fetched for me like they were trying to contain a lot into one episode on <hes> the storyline just didn't make sense why if all these people were missing their families somebody knows friends pens or somebody knows they're living there right or you can't have that. Many sense of six six people goes missing yeah. It didn't work for me. <hes> I thought the acting was good. I thought thought the <hes> I thought the dialogue for the doctor was was funny and was really good. I thought they <hes> Bill. I loved the reaction I loved the GRANDPA stuff and you know it's whole the Lorraine Gilles Oh yeah grandfather. He's like no. I don't look that old. I don't I'm not that yeah. He's like father. She's like she's like okay grandfather yeah yeah I didn't <hes> it was extremely forced and the fact that they were trying so hard to be <hes> like P._C.. So they had somebody from every right <HES> <HES> I it to me just one from every we had everybody represented and it just seemed a little trite. It seemed a little forced at it seemed a little <hes> uh-huh I just I just didn't find that the story line held water just didn't make any sense I mean mawkish after route doesn't make sense yeah I get that the mobster but they usually make sense in the context of the overall storyline storyline this one there was no part of this because she did that mean that number that he should've sawn and she still just bizarre yeah it was supposed to be like a ghost store town goes yeah. I liked the episode on on a lot of levels but really it has a lot of problem. I dislike them a Lotta love did you I might not embiid when he was talking and whatever that thing was and he brought all the Food Nardo is like why why I'm not Hungary. I already told you he brought food for two and the doctors while I am animals like we must be really Hungary. Doctor kept trying. Get Him away. He's like no. I WANNA see one to visit whoever he's got held in there as I was playing an inaugural feel like it might be missy yeah. I don't think it's the thing under the bright because he was like in the Canarios like wait. Why did you put a piano in Mary's like? I just wanted to piano 'cause they. She started whatever it was started playing piano but see that's totally totally different story line right that had the fine with me yeah my favorite it is they're trying to do like a climate zone or some horror <music> movie like ghost story trying to twilight than fine if the story had made said understand why they were bogues in the walls while where did the <unk> okay so they kept saying well. They're alien okay. Where'd they come from? Why are they? They're why do they react to the music you. I said they would and you know what weird all the other people got sucked into the walls and why release them and if if you come back the only thing. And was that she was alive. She was Skilling would and she could move around talk. Everyone else went into the wall and I was like why would they it made no sense and some of them were absorbed into the walls. Some of them were disintegrated disintegrated. How did they come back if they were completely disintegrated and put down in bit made no sense yeah it made no came back widen the sun in the mom comeback because they got disintegrated every two she was in control them at the end? When I say liked it I I liked elements of what was going on but the whole all time I was seeing the exact same flaws and the ending really bothered me because like you just pointed out I I understand she's controlling them and that's why why they sacrificed doesn't mean they're actually gone? He didn't he taught you live and die right. We started talking to the lice. I thought okay he's gotTa realize there's a bigger creature controlling the or something that didn't seem to be the case it just kind of fell predict what I think it would be the if the son had been alien controlling everything but he wasn't no and then so if he had been who it was going seem like drop that sad like wait you're when he was like your father. How could you avail why for so long and and I was like oh he's an alien? He's like you're not gonNA would then they scan again. There's no alien in you and I was like he's like Oh so you're her son like wait and she didn't. She didn't know that she had a son like I <unk> is a son mix. No freaking son what's the doctor was in a different episode yes and it was very bill. Ends up with these college students and they're going to this house and in university it was weak and he's like certain classes. She doesn't go to the universal which is being tutored by she might he may have gotten scholarship so she can be under him. They didn't explain no jerry had an apartment to. She lives with her mom. Oh Yeah so then you go will y none of it made any sense. None of it reminded me of x-files the night nightmare before for Christmas or what was it called the one with Tomlin yeah which I enjoyed the episode but it sort of had that same vibe where it was supposed to be sort of funny and sort of scary and and like it had the identical vibe yeah x-files opposite worked a lot better. That's what I'm saying and so I kept looking at this one going okay come on like do something that has an explanation at the end do something interesting make it so that that guys didn't make accent was filled with them or something and he brought them there and he controls them and he was and it was like why are the only ends whether Y'all waving his. Why did he say it was his daughter and why was he saving? Why would he have just said? It was my mom <music>. I'm control. No no said that makes told all the kids and the leader only saw as to sheet. Does she only come around every twenty years. Is She confused by this is she. It seemed like she was very okay. Twenty years ago she would still not be thinking that was his daughter where of all these people so she knows what's makes no freaking and when that first half and she would have known wrong she had a son so she froze up into would and her son was they can believe the guy that got absorbed of the First Guy Pablo I could see him coming back. I cannot see the girl at the end who got just like sooner or the one of the stairs yeah but she just came right back up out of the would like now any you know it was weird. Her hand came off the end to pull her out every they just stood up there. They just came out in there like guys. Are you dalen. Why wouldn't every single person that was absorbed be released? That's what I said. I'm like Oh. I bet their release. I wish I was thinking that we would see these people flooding out of the House but it was just six and why. I was why did she all of a sudden develop a conscience she care when anybody else was killed. The doctor explained it to her and why does the alien then. Why does this alien race of these beautiful things why they why do they just say okay never mind? We're done space lease space line. I know I may say ice on. I cannot workshop saying Lice why the Space Space Beatles in a British backyard in the eighteenth century from Liverpool space so why why would they then. Where are these going to go? Are they going to go dormant because she was done shoeing <unk> like killing people and how the garden but and they look like chocolate I thought the pill bugs but why applies he bringing her a box of shaw all that stuff wasn't explain which is a big flaw thinking about that last episode they explained and how that Nice Rob at sea monster like all of it was really cool story the stuff they left out this made no free debating it a little bit about where to discover more but they didn't give every flip every card yeah this one. They needed to flip a good half the cards that they did and why were they so he needs them. He brings him in there and then starting from the first minute. They're dying. They're getting absorbed right. Why are the rest of them? Had parents that would have helped move or friends that would optimal one box the and that was their big thing like everyone had a box so it's like oh look here are six boxes so in what in every room he had six bucks is it made no freaking cents. I'm with you. What I liked was really what it boils down to an essay liked it was I liked the doctor as usual join? Watch absolutely I liked bill and I liked the dialogue doc. I liked the dialogue between all of them. I was was significantly creepy. Yes Oh my just went no so I saw him. At first I went ono. He's he wants to offer a bunch of college. Kids the place to live no creepy old guy with a big beautiful house that wants to give you house really cheaply run and it would have been more fun if they did it like Monster House. That's when okay. That's what I I when he said well my daughter thank goodness she still with me. I was thinking that was actual daughter. She became a she di. She's very ill became absorbed into the house and that's why would keep groaning. Do it like ghosts <unk> mattis this weird space but like why were they trying so hard to force this alien this stuff in there just have it be a creepy Norman Bates any no what can own monster house they have said he said aren't ghosts. That stuff doesn't exist. Even though we've seen stuff that looks like he's like there's a different explanation every time so they could have really played up the ghost element him they could have had the alien <music> bugs but they needed to explain it. They needed to put the threaten us about this tower and then who care nothing like what were the girl was but didn't room room into the tower and how did they figure out how to put that on the bookshelf will they were. They were trying to figure it. If you watch scooby Doo enough you know to pull the books and it'll open anywhere yeah so port tandel. What I liked was him helping her move was hilarious when she dropped the Tartus on top of the pile and everything and the pile <hes> and and she's like a mover and he's like Lord? It's like such your job like sounds like my lords like notes might my species so you do you have job no time Lord that exchange was brilliant. I loved loved all of that whole thing I loved him fathering her and like doting on her and like openly shouldn't do we need to have this. They don't even have washing machine in here and they don't have this. They don't have that and him going around. Owned and checking the house out for her. I love all that and that is typical for the companions you get <hes> you know have boundary issues with the doctor because he has no boundaries and so to me that all was really fun playful and not in yes. It wasn't taken that every part Wednesday him be excited and be like Ou know. There's a story here ooh. There's something exciting over. The music didn't even go back to the thing with the wind right like he saw there was obviously with the wind was moving up above. He didn't feel any down here. They didn't talk about that side. He said the the win the win the wind but there was no I was what was it boggs right now. It makes no the story didn't make any frequently see the bugs were like the leaves and rustling at herself. The drafty house makes sense sense. Okay with your hearing the creaking and everything and it turns out. It's these bugs but the fact that the wind was moving up above and where he was standing there was no win and he's like draft..
"coo" Discussed on Coo Coo for Who: A Doctor Who Podcast
"That was not father's Day. They went to war because time with let him set wouldn't it was getting angry that they were changing the father die and they kept saying the those alien the timekeeper type aliens kept start trying to stop them from doing it so I kept repeating like groundhog's Day <music> so that's that's what happens. Maybe if you change something that has an actual impact from that fixed moment those time creatures comments stop you from doing maybe naturally he's. I thought it was interesting that Nar Dole said at the end <hes> he's been distracted because he has a new friend because he must have stayed. Put sitting there work in as little professor job or whatever you know now bill came in. It's like ooh adventure. You know like all of a sudden now is he's. He gets to go play with his buddy. I want that meet me. Wonder for a second there I went. Does I know I have a feeling we've seen this character. We might have seen this character before in there but I think if some very much when he I said it like Saris not paying attention to you yes not like not sorry his up paying paying attention to you. It's don't act up because he's still here so paying ten. It was don't don't get are getting ideas thinking that the hour we're that we're vulnerable. I watching watching it still here and we're not vulnerable. That's what the feeling that we've traveled with this creature before we've definitely here eight hundred thirty no but that the doctor it just felt like it might have been like a past companion would be walked. They ignore. That's why I think it could be the master yes but it's gotta be somebody WHO's dangerous to them right yeah and that lie in that he thought that <hes> it up spaceship. Wow If missy though didn't missy go off with Clara. No that was lady me all that's what was yeah yeah yeah all right so other favorite hearts other parts when when she said when the girl said that that that it was a guy who had a tattoo on his hand and and Bill said Oh well we could go ask around and and US barring boring and then he got the fishermen I choose to wait. No Time said he said how do you that cartridge. Okay never mind how this is appetite goes and then he said and then he was saying he said you. You'll see Nagai Tattoo any any any. He's like he's like that silences in at As you hate tattoos I hate them to see we're bonding. I think we're Bondi though is so funny because he stole all the pie is in everything from him and he's like beads so weird to the scum and they're putting on their suits and he says let's get eaten and she says we're not totally. We're not going to totally be defenseless down there. He goes no of course well. Yes but don't worry about. I know what molly loved in this with the guy walked in and goes doctor Guy wrote that down just go is the best actor to diss. I know Oh that's someone's last name but it's Leiria. Oh my God club like Ooh that she got to see the psychic paper exciting. What did it say on it? Shut just go fiscal that he worked for the other net government Oh and then she said she was like and then he said why that one in a why yes <hes> <hes> <hes> and then when when Nardo was saying this is <hes> you know that he was being naughty naughty and and the doctor goes language at no. He's that this this is not good. It's this is not good. It's downright Nadi would he always set it like bets way. Oh and I'm going to say and then doctorate language and I I just can't away which Pearl wait no no no better better by favorite line so after he's he makes him the teenage like I put a little coffee in it for some flavor you know what he's doing this knee and he's yelling about going out and he goes. I'm in my specially chosen close. You went out. You're wearing CLO- visualize deer. Mice specially chosen close shy. That was a moment that I bet is my guess is coffee. Tea is probably frown non. Even though coffee is found on he is delicious. I Love T._V.. I don't like coffee so I think they may have been and making a joke because the English like there is a robot who doesn't know that I don't know if people would appreciate it but I I love it. I love that coffee of you see. It's delicious so it's pretty but I think that's yes with the idea that was supposed to be a joke. Did they know it's a joke to me. That's actually wrong. It's all about Naughty Naughty Pearl so much. I think that it's hill thank what she brings to. It is so garish. Yes and it's really a lot of fun to watch and I love that. She doesn't even in this like she. This was a really hard to. You know journey for her like hard and the guy was like you're ignorant shows in your race he was so this was a really hard one for her. She had to watch people die. She had to make really major morale decisions rate decisions but she never lost her aw right like she was just gel like I can't believe we're doing this kind of the ultimate home schooler with him. He's homeschooling yeah in the fact that she was like this is all awesome and I'm GonNa take everything in Adler everything I can. Yes as I'm your Tudor. I'm your teacher. She's turned a school. Yes I have something pinned on pinterest and it says home schooling the doctor who I just like that name so I never actually looked at it but that's exactly what he's doing. Yes yes so very cool <hes> but yeah I loved loved. I love the episode I love storyline thought it was really fun. I loved the effects are in there on that thing and then the eye open now so cool circuit we saw the creature the though I knew that it was going to be another case where where the creatures not the bad guy someone else's the bad guy <hes> it reminded me of the one where they have the space wail is that what was yeah and and just say on top and you find out that the thing is really just being torture torture so you actually so like it reminded me of that and then Isuzu show the chance that's absorb on <hes> but he told you would. He said it doesn't mean it's Ailey. Yes the threat might might be here right and he was telling you like Yep. Look out because don't don't just assume aliens are the bad guys right are they. Sometimes yes yeah are humans the bag I loved his each each it was very pertinent to our world and and then I love how bill was like coast so beautiful yeah and she's like that was worth you living that long you know she's like how long do you have to live to get to be able to do a speech like that. You know yet if you watch <hes> <UNK> polly's face when she says that line he just made he barely did anything with his face but you could just see the cry out because he knew I act that when I thought that was he had some excellent acting deliverable line about him not having time for outrage. He's really good time playing against bill yeah. They're a perfect match. I liked him much better than than with Clara. I Love Clara. I loved them to get by but I'm not this is different. I like this better and I cry range with clearer because she loved Matt's was going to say that each I think it was that was a really cool dynamic to try that that you know here you've got this lead over from the she's used to the doctor in a different form right and now they've got. I loved that play where you know oh but after but like when I see this I think he deserved his own debt Lake Right. This is so good but he got a chance to have his own the problem Panya they're leaving in three years or whatever that opinion Riley ready so like for the next season season from what I understand. Bill is supposed to be back that would be great so is still going to be a companion for a few years or is it. One of these bill will be back for an episode. Bill is so new like she'll have only had a year with. I launcher forever. That's right. I know I know but I'm saying Donna hit one. I'm saying it won't have the impact that Clara Matt Smith had on this new doctor it because she will have only been with him for for a short time then when she switches to the new doctor she's GonNa be like Oh okay. It's exciting. It's not when Clairon Matt had two separate devastating. That was a whole different ball thinks thinks she wasn't warrant. I have a feeling that since he is teaching her yes he is going to his can longer about how this work yeah. I'M GONNA change show have trouble with it because she's going to be just you're going to miss. Yes Yeah I've been clear was taken by surprise on Clara was also they loved each other. There's a big difference yeah she with being in order to and knowing that he's still in there air when Dr Switched to David tennant rose headed little Har hard time doing that ship she fell in love with David Ten s but young she was really she was very much like Pearl like really enamored with what he was doing and having fun with everything she didn't ask the same questions Pearl as but she was enamored and and shed a bit of a transition she was a little bit mad at him when they switched but I think Clara had a much harder harder shift yes and even though she got on board pretty quickly it was more difficult like angry with each other the whole time running transitioning a little easier oh absolutely well. She also very different personality than clear seen pictures of this new doctor. Oh my Gosh I'm going to love them. Imagine parole running around with her. Illness doesn't like funny suspender Assen like Baker Bekker's Capris like flow. We haven't seen it yet x rays fun. That's actually I believe that that the new doctors revealed in the Christmas episode which we gotTa to get there. We gotta ways to go so. Is there anything else that this episode now a lot I did you oh my guy to cannot wait from the knives and really really really enjoying the season so good. I'm I'M.
