"There's something to that. So here's an example, I think you can see that right there. So at the top you see how it says Brian Callen and Travis Chappell. And for our listener, will you explain what you're showing? Yeah, so this is just a post from my Instagram of interviewed this comedian Brian Callen, who I'm a big fan of. We put out a couple clips and he accepted a couple of those collaborations. So on the feed, it looks like on the top, instead of just saying Travis chapel, it says Brian Cohen and Travis chapel. So then when I go into insights here, this video has a 167,000 plays almost, 4700 likes, a hundred comments, 1130 shares, and over 300 saves. And so total reach on this was close to 200,000 in terms of impressions across Facebook and Instagram. And that came from finding an interviewing somebody really cool and interesting. Having a good conversation that's out of the ordinary for that person and then finding good clips from that that make them look really good and put them in a positive light and then sharing it requesting a collaboration. That's it. Good stuff. I'm going to take a quick break when we get back. I have three things that I really want to discuss with you. And one of them is just how to ask better questions. Because you mentioned how that is important. Another one is talking about your own podcast and the rebrand what's going right, what's not going right, what it's like and if we should do it. And the third is just to getting your very first good guess, because you mentioned the clout that you get with a good guest, but how did you get that very, very, very first one. All right, so we'll be back talking about better questions, rebranding, and getting their first good guest. Hey my friend, as you know, this episode is sponsored by my company, grow your

"Do look forward to kind of fixing a lot of it one day when I retire. And then maybe you can spend a lot more time doing some of the things I really like to do with plants and seeing it grow and change. I have a muscogee crepe Myrtle. And I know everybody's just going, woohoo. Oh boy, Kramer. I bought it as a three gallon and I planted it and I've got a front porch and a side porch. Our kitchen porch we call it. And they kind of form a corner. Everybody always asks me, why didn't you just tie the two porches together? And I don't know the answer to that, but I did. So I've got this space in that corner where I planted a muskogee creek. I promise you, it's no more than three feet from the foundation in both directions, 90° from each other from both foundations of this portrait and you think that is totally insane. But I had a vision of what I wanted and I wanted that crate Myrtle to get up and over the top of the house and provide a Canopy for those porches in that corner. I've been in this house almost 23 years now. It took me probably 18 of those 23 years to train it into three large trunks and they are massive trunks. Each one of those trucks is probably ten, 12 inches in diameter. And to get it to go between the root spaces and our child, that must go create models every bit of 35 feet tall. It arches out over those porches on that corner of the house. I'm not worried about the foundation tree playing that because if it was a hoax I would, but not a great Myrtle. One of my plants that I'm pretty proud of. It's kind of a focal point for me. Still flowers feel good, and most everybody that comes not that I have a lot of visitors. They go, wow, is that a crate merle? I don't think I've ever seen one that big. And there's certainly a great Myrtle set big all over the place. So they just don't look for them. Back to the old adage about how people prune their crate myrtles and they lop them off at shoulder high every year and that kind of thing. I knew that with good training and over time what it could look like and what it could become. And it's finally there. You led it to its potential there. It sounds like. Yeah. Sounds like you got some of your mom's patients too. Yeah, probably so, because there's a lot of things. Like I underplanted that, create murdering that corner with cast iron plant and of course in the early years, it got sun scorched. I didn't plant, but maybe, I don't know, 20 little court gallons of cast iron plant in there. Of course, now it's got enough shade and it's been there long enough that it is thick as hair on a dog's back and it's just got this nice lush green kind of upward and dipping broad leaf that create metal looks like it's floating out of that cast iron plant in that corner of the house. It's my favorite corner. I may rip everything else around out totally out and redo it one day, but I'm not changing that corner.

"First plants I ever potted were Jackson Perkin roses came in from Texas to our little greenhouse. I didn't know beans about what I was doing. We potted up rose bushes for retail sale. And I just thought it was the coolest thing in the world. We did a little bit of landscape maintenance and a little bit of landscape installed around cortisol, Georgia. I just felt like I had a knack for it. And once I started working in Atlanta, that was with triple-A lawn industries years ago, we were doing commercial properties. I really love printing. I don't know. I was crazy. A lot of people hate printing, but I love taking something out of bounds and turn it into something back inbounds. They just kind of got in my blood by the time I made it to Callaway gardens. It's hard not to love it, and that setting. And in my business partner, he was the managing arborist Callaway. We started talking Callaway was changing some. We could see some riding on the wall. Doctor Barrett had left Parker and decent left. The winds were blowing a little bit different direction. We weren't too sure where horticulture was hated at the gardens and if you want to stay in botanical gardens work, which I probably could have gone to mobile, but I was tired of moving. I had moved a good bit. We had kids and there's just not a botanical garden round every corner, right? So you have to be willing to be an itinerant preacher. And go from state to state if you're going to stay in that business. We just got to talk and what if we do a nursery and we do tree work, plants is what we know wasn't until after we started diversified trees really that I went and got my assay certification because I still want to be a student. You got to do 30 hours of education every three years to maintain that certification. So we are continually still trying to stay on top of things. I love trees. I'm not a tree hugger in that truest sense. You'll sit down in front of the bulldozer to

"And what you find out is that they know it with an intuitively don't really do anything about it. They don't really manage their landscape. They have a lot of people have companies come in that long maintenance companies and they mow the grass and do some printing and maybe they get some fertilization, maybe not. Most of them probably don't. But a lot of people that don't have that, people enjoy doing their own gardening. I bought this great tree and they go out and they plant it. And they know enough to water it when they plant it, if they plant it in the summer, they water some of the first summer and they get it to live. But then a few years later, it starts looking really bad. It starts thinning out. They've never fertilized it. They've never supplemented the water during dry periods, life never really thought about pest management and whether or not the oak leaf caterpillars have denuded the tree every fall for the last three years in a row. It's a sum total of a lot of little things. They've been going back the way it was planted. We do offer a tree planting service on the tree service side of our business because what will happen a lot of times we'll go into a residential landscape where we'll remove a tree for whatever reason that lightning struck or it's old and it's fallen apart and they want a tree back in its place. We'll do that, but we're not really full blown landscape contractors. I'm always been a big proponent of good soil preparation in the landscape because that's where 90% or maybe 98% of the problems originate with plants that start down or plants that don't perform well. For example, if I was going to plant a grouping, let's just say that I really liked limelight hydrangea and I had a nice sunny slope that I was going to plant these hydrangeas on. There was going to take up a space that was 20 foot by 12 foot. What your average guy is going to do is go out there big 9 holes in plant 9 plants. Sure, he's going to mold him. He's going to either bark or plant straw. He's going to water them. And that's the only dick and he's going to do. I'm way more prone to actually turn the ground in that whole 200 ft² area. Of course, if I've got the equipment, I'll maybe use a mini excavator. If I don't have that, at least got a tiller that I can get down 8 ten, 12, 14 inches with. And a man, the entire area. And Italy, my plants out and dig those holes in plant them. Particularly in the clay soils of our Piedmont area of Georgia, when you dig a hole, pounding through hard clay, so much can happen. One is it can hold water if it's not deep enough. You don't want a plant too deep, but sometimes you got a hard pan, you have to dig through it. Plus you reach slightly to go out, contrary to pocket belief rates don't go down. Go out.

"Heads, the aesthetics of landscape work is almost what drives what plants you grow, what plants you select for that install, not so much as to whether it's native or exotic or whether or not it's suitable for this climate or not. We push the envelope a lot with some of these exotics by bringing them into the southeastern landscapes of Georgia and Alabama and Tennessee. Some of them do very, very well. I love plants, have for a long time, one of the reasons I love going to work every day is one of the reasons I like this business. Is it I'm one of the lucky guys, right? I have found something that I really love to do because I love plants. Now, having said that, I'm also in the nursery business. And I got to pay my bills. I've got to meet production demands. I can't be successful. If I have major crop losses, got a maximize those 7 or 8000 trees that I'm able to ship out per year because that's what keeps the machine running. To make choices, I got to decide how much of a native nursery do I want to be. It wasn't a hard decision, but I was disappointed that I had to drop Sarah wood, but I just had to. The crop losses were just too great.

"Have a lot that we offer that fits that niche, but it did kind of drive our decision to add them to the list because we haven't always been growing these. For instance, so European hornbeam called Franz fontaine. It's very fast gate. It's upright tight and narrow. It mature size. It doesn't take up a huge headspace. And that tree fits that urban street tree or that urban green space or that urban front yard. There's a Chinese French that we grow, cognitive Tokyo tower, to our size, is only 12 to 14 foot tall and 5 to 6 foot broad. What I would refer to as a patio tree. Fits in a small space, great spring color. Okay, fall color, nothing bragged about. The summer foliage colors dark glossy green. It's just a real nice tree. There are a few things that we try to add to our mix based on the landscape design, needs that are out there. Do you see any other trans coming along in the landscaping and garden industry? There are a lot of novelty trends when it comes to plants, people stay real close to better homes and gardens or southern living magazines, which a lot of the rich is a homeowners do. And a lot of that drives their decisions toward what plants they ask their landscapers or their landscape architect about. The guys who are bringing new plants to the market that are doing pretty exotic things in terms of hybridizing and tissue culturing and developing plants with certain flower colors, certain characteristics, certain summer traits or winter traits, whatever they're shooting for. There's a bit of big trend toward that in the last 20, 25 years for sure. For a long time, Craig, you know, this landscapes, commercial escapes, particularly were dwarf yo pond, red maple, oak tree, and lariat. That was kind of your standard commercial landscape. Immediately, they were kind of boring. So I think new planning introductions are good, but I'm certainly not trying to grow all of them. That's for sure. What about the plant movement or just native plants in general? Is that something that you're thinking about more now as a grower? We have done certain palette of native plants. It's been part of our production since day one. Part of that is the environment of Callaway garden said, that kind of came through for a number of years. Brought a lot of those plants with us into nursery production, partner and I left the gardens and started this operation. Because there's just a lot of great plant material and native plants have been kind of trendy for a while and there's been some encouragement to use native plants because they adapt better. They survive better. They thrive better to use native plants and to a degree that's very true. So we've done a number of native trees in our production. We've also eliminated some too because it can be difficult to grow. Take for example SAAR wood, it's a great tree. It's kind of that medium sized Woodland tree. They're in bloom right now. If you're paying attention out there driving around, roadside edges or parks or wherever. They're in bloom right now. They got great fall color. There's all kinds of reasons to have

"That available. If you're really smart about it. That's smart. Really smart. Thank you. You're awesome. More heavily used crops will have a brand new crop on the ground that just got potted up and moved to the field. A few weeks ago, somewhere out there will have a crop that's somewhere in the neighborhood of 8 months old, ten months old, not quite ready for sale, but getting close, and it will also have a crop out there that is getting low in numbers that we've been selling out of for four to 5 months. Try to have a rotation in other words. For example, if I've got October glory maples out there, I've got some really small ones and 15 gallons. I've got some medium sized ones in 15 gallons, and I've got what I call a block of trees or a group of trees that are finished that were actually pulling orders from in a perfect world, pull the last one out of that block and it's all done. That next block is really close, if not already finished and ready to start pulling material out of the ship. What that means is that at any given year, we've got somewhere around 40% of the inventory that's ready and available for sale 60% that's at some stage of production. I don't know if this number matches up to my percentages, but we're moving out of there, actually loading on trucks and shipping. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 7000, maybe 8000 trees a year. Sounds like a lot, but I said, we're small. Yeah. Tell you what, I went to your website at diversified trees dot com and I saw a couple of videos you had using a drone. That was impressive. You see that drone fly through the nursery and see all what's involved in producing these trees and I'd recommend folks go there and look at that. I was just very impressed and been around for a long time and seen a lot of nurseries. Never flown through any nurses, but maybe that's what it was. That was the son of a friend of ours who's a student over at auburn university and does some drone videos on the side. We originally did video for the trade show season last year since we weren't having trade shows. We were having virtual trade shows and what's all of that was over. I thought, you know, why not? I'm just going to put this up on our website. If I'm buying a 60 gallon plant, what does that mean? We do four sizes. We do a 15 gallon of 30 gallon, a 65 gallon and a hundred gallon. To the landscape contractor that buys from us. What that 65 gallon means to him is that he gets pretty good size plant to start with with a much bigger root system. For us, in 65 gallons, we were only doing evergreen material. We're doing conifers and magnolias in those 65s. You're looking at getting a green giant or bravado that's ten to 12 foot, bracken's Brown beauty Magnolia that's ten to 12 foot. That's kind of our target height in a 65 gallon. Take a Magnolia, for instance. Let's just say bracken's Brown beauty Magnolia, which is a traditional southern

"Introductions are good. But i'm certainly not trying to grow all of them. That's for sure. What about the plant movement or just native plants in general. Is that something that you're thinking about more. now's grower. we have done. Certain palette of native plants been part of our production since day. One part of that is the environment. Callaway gardens said i kind of came through for a number of years Brought a lot of those plants with us into nursery production partner. And i left the gardens and started this operation. Because there's a lot of great plant material and a native plants have been a trendy you know for a while and they're spending some encouragement to us plants khazei adapt better. They survive better. They thrive better dis native plants and to a degree. That's very true so we've done a number of native trees in our production. We've also eliminated some too because can be difficult to grow type for example sar would. It's a great tree. It's kind of that medium size woodland tree during bloom right now. If you're paying attention out there driving around you know roadside edges or were parks or wherever. They're in bloom right now. They've got great fall colored. There's all kinds of reasons to have them in your landscape. If you like attracting honeybees. They've trees or great for pollination and all that kind of thing. There is a lot of really good reasons to have native trees here landscape but from the grower standpoint. I could just about ask you to stick an ice pick in my eyeball to ask me to try to grow another crop sire woods collie we just there so route sensitive and the route environment has to be done in managed so differently that it makes it really really hard to grow a nice crop a sry trace and in my customer's always have problems with transplant. Success seems like nature does a whole lot. Better job of fred knows through the woods on their own. Then we can do in the nursery landscape trade and that might explain what we don't see i would say a huge numbers like we see and dodig nurseries and what did you think. That's what drives it notice.

"Gala magnolia is going to be around five to six foot. The thirty gal magnolia is gonna be seven to eight foot. Sixty five gallons gonna be nine ten foot and the hundred gallon magnolia is going to be twelve fourteen foot each incremental increase in size of container. You get that increase in breadth and height of plant from a handling standpoint. Go from fifteen gallon that weighs about forty five or fifty pounds to one hundred gallon that weighs about six or seven hundred pounds which sounds like a lot twelve to fourteen.

So there's a big difference in way big difference to the contractor who's got equipment or got small spices. Lotta times guys will say. I'd rather have a b in b but i need a container for this because we gotta go through a small gate. We can't get equipment in there. We gotta roll it into the backyard and get it up a hill and we need something. We can handle swan advantage of container sizes that we do. It seems like building lots especially residential law or getting smaller. How does that determine tight plants or trees that you grow part of it. Is you know there are certain number of things you gotta provide. because they're used such quantities almost on every landscape and that's the shade trees and the either coniferous evergreen broadleaf evergreens. Then you get down to some of your specially crops. You try to think what's going to drive demand and the smaller urban landscapes or certainly one of those markets out there that you know your customers are doing with. I've got a lot of residential customers into the atlanta metro area. They're not dealing with acre condominium developments. They're dealing with the old atlanta neighborhoods. That are all postage-stamp sized lots and somebody who renovated a house and wants to renovate the garden their backyard and the passed through gates the alleyways or tight the overhead space tight all that kind of stuff so there are a few trees. We don't have a lot that we offer. That fit set niche but it did kind of drive our decision to add them to the list. Because we haven't always been growing these for instance european horn bean call france fontaine. It's very fast gait. It's upright tight and narrow it mature size. It doesn't take up a huge head. Space at that tree fits that urban street tree or that urban greenspace or that urban front yard. There's a chinese fringe that we grow. Connecticut reduces tokyo tower. Two or size is only twelve to fourteen foot tall and five to six foot. Broad what i would refer to as a patio. Trie fits in a small space great spring collar. Okay fall color. Nothing roundabout but the summer foliage color start glossy green is just a real nice tree so there are a few things that we try to add to our mix based on the last design needs. That are out there. Dc trans coming along the landscaping and garden industry. There are a lot of novelty trans when it comes to plants. People stay real close to better homes and gardens or southern living magazine which a lot of the rich homeowners do and a lot of that drives their decisions toward what plants they asked their landscapers or their landscape architect about the guys who are bringing new plants to the market that are doing pretty exotic things in terms of hybridize ing and tissue culturing in developing plants with certain flower colors certain characteristics certain summer traits or winter trait.

When you think about the history of that tree it was collected from seed in louisiana. And i know this. Because i did a little bit research. A nursery lee florida bought seeds grew seedlings at their farm just twelve fourteen inch seedlings a nursery in cairo. Georgia bought the seedlings and grew them into five gallon containers up to six to eight feet tall. A nursery lutherans field georgia bought those grew them in thirty gallon containers up to two inch calibre and told fourteen feet tall. We bought those thirty gallon trees.

Put them in the gardens. I just find that entirely hilarious to me to think about the journey of a tree where it started in ordinance up. You've mentioned a couple of things that we might not all be familiar with when site propagation. Budding and grafting propagation is kind of the umbrella. Word for taking a plant and reproducing more plants from it that can either be the collecting of seed that you've put in the ground nor that you put in a controlled environment in a greenhouse and let them.

"Did you get a chance to ask your own questions that you might inspired emphasize on the gone question. Podcast sokoto had gone questioned dot astral question. What is a smarter way to select tree for your property. I'm sure you've heard a lot of people talk about right. Plant right place. that's very basic. People usually either want a tree for shade or they want a tree for some accent. Either fall color or sprinkler a lot of times people. Just choose a tree. They like rather than thinking about the mature size. People try to plant trees and spices. That are too small. They plant crepe myrtles and places that are in heavy shade. If you could just research a little bit more ask your local government. Make a visit to the local retail garden center. Just thinking through it and making sure you've got hit clearance you've got power lines across you property or where you have sun where you have shade for. You have room for something to grow into that space. A tree looks really dyson. Cute when it's small you gotta thank twenty twenty five thirty years down the road. How coupon that space in your grower. A fine trees and plants. How does that process where the nursery business he's gotten really really specialized especially in the last twenty years. There was a time l. forties fifties and sixties the nurseries in georgia. The weren't that many of them. Those nursery did it all. They did everything from propagation cuttings rooting seedlings budding grafting that greenhouse operations had field operations. One stop place for everything. They might grow flowers they might grow. Woody shrubs and micro trays the micro vines micro vegetables of micro perennials and micro grasses years ago nursery. Just kind of tried to do it. All our approach has been very focused in that we are doing container. Only a were doing woody plants only and were doing only plants that lynn themselves to the market in a larger containers. So the smallest thing that we do is a fifteen gallon. That's a container in which we would grow for instance a holly up to about five to six feet or we grow a shade tree ochre maple the one up to an inch and a half caliber and as much as ten to maybe twelve foot planet height and we don't do any propagation over the years i've collected seed on a few things.

Tell us a little bit about your career and your current position. We'll thank you so much. I appreciate it. I'm really happy to be here. And i love this podcast and number of your episodes. So they ain't. I'm so who am i. Well i i am a mother so i have three little boys which you know is so amplified during this time of kovin and trying to balance everything so i have a really special place in my heart for all of the working. Caregivers out there right now but my career. So let's see. I studied industrial organizational psychology. Which is basically the blend of business psychology on. It's really amplified. You know the along my path. I started in in consulting and then i moved over and i worked for one of the big four consulting firms that internal hr and from the outside looking in may think oh big for a pretty traditional but man. I really learned unlike built my foundation from a people perspective. They are because the they're not making widgets. They are selling their people services that they needed to be pretty progressive and how they manage people strategy and so over my years there. I really learned and felt as though you know being progressive in the places of diversity and inclusion or flexible working or just even working in communal spaces and not close off offices. I thought that was the norm and it actually really formed how i view. Hr and this function. I'm moving forward on from there. I worked at a couple of other companies. I worked in gaming. And i worked in aerospace. And i found that i was really marketable because i had a very forward leaning perspective. I was asked to come and help build strategy around some of these important topics And then i decided to go out on my own. Which was completely different for me and i started my own consulting business and i was doing executive coaching and hr consulting. And i'm also an executive coach. And i still coach people today And then one of my clients ended up being warner music group and then this opportunity came about. And it's been incredible so i joined back full-time a couple of years ago. And it was at a really pivotal time. For warner chappell music. They were looking for ahead of people. Strategy which is the role that i'm in now and supporting a global organization with a new ceo and a new ceo and we partnered in really transforming on the culture of our company. It's been really really kind of as awesome. I'm not surprised to hear you say those things about p. Wc which is. I think the the four year at my wife spent her entire career there until she's she's taking some time off now because we've got two kids two young kids at home by great organization very innovative and i'm not surprised that you built the foundation for what you're using today at the company very cool absolutely. Tell me just for for those listeners. Who aren't familiar. What's the relationship of warner chappell music. With warner music. yeah so War chapel is the global publishing arm within warner music group. So warner music. Group is basically broken into three different divisions. If you will it's the publishing and publishing we signed songwriters. And then there is the corporate business and then the largest piece of the business which is our frontline label business which they signed the artists. Cool very cool industry so every time we get to talk to someone that deals with people someone in hr chief people officer. I love to talk about culture because it's so fundamental to strong team and a strong organization and really interested because a lot of us outside looking in i mean. I'm sure that this is. This is the case you are in an awesome industry. A very people focused entertainment industry. What's the culture like at one or chapel Will it is an incredible industry. I mean people have the most Unique stories with how music ties to their lights on so anyway. It's so after we have a really strong culture that we believe event we are transparent. We believe in deep collaboration. We build trust and really believed that our leaders need to empower employees on. Everybody also has deep passion for our songwriters. We don't have this of ego. We have this business of like leading from the heart on. And i think that really sets us apart. We are committed to building a forward culture and it evolves evolves all the time. I mean koga aside because that's been a really big point of Of needing to hit it But we've always been very or meaning and we want our employees firing on all cylinders. As as i like to So yeah i mean it's it's been a really wonderful place to be. I wanna talk about covert and some of the change brought about in a minute but as far as the people that that worked for your your company do you find it. I mean a lot of times when we talk. We talk to business leaders. It's talking about loving what you do that. Being passionate being invested in your business. Is that easier for you guys because it is so. Many people are passionate about music. It's such a part of our lives and personal lives and are growing up on our memories and our and our kids lives. Is it easier to you. Think to find great people in an industry like yours eight. I think it is. I mean i've worked in different industries and the word passion always comes up or you know we work with great people. That's always like the crux of our engagement This is next. Level is culture building outside of work. I mean it. Builds global culture near on the forefront of that and it is it's part of what people do. I can't tell you how many of our boys are musicians. How many of our police are songwriters. They wake up listening to music. We have music rousting in the office. We have songwriters and artists performing for us in the office from time to time and at the end of the day. We go to gigs.

How Stories Go Viral and Drive Economic Events
"I recently celebrated a birthday with a good day peaceful. What I didn't have was a birthday cake and we did not seeing the Happy Birthday Song Robert Schiller in his book Narrative Economics and which today's episode title comes from the Subtitle of his book wrote that the Happy Birthday Song. Maybe the best known song of all time he mentioned. It's not particularly admired for its beauty or grace. It grew unplanned and uncontrolled he writes. There is no history of a government edict requiring the song to be Sung or a marketing campaign promising lifelong popularity for those who sing it or have it sung to them. The song spread like an epidemic in the nineteen twenties and thirties fell back a little bit during World War. Two and then it began again Warner Chappell. Music had a copy rate from nineteen thirty five collected millions of dollars up until two thousand sixteen when it was determined. That happy birthday to you was very very similar to an eighteen. Ninety three song titled Good Morning To all sounded exactly the same and so they lost the trademark. The Happy Birthday Song went viral. Like an epidemic. We have all become more familiar. I think with the mathematics behind epidemics. One of the first theories was proposed in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven by William or guilty KEROUAC and Anderson Gray. Mckendrick KEROUAC was a Scottish biochemist Kendrick. A Scottish physician. It was as simple model. It was called the Sir model where they divided the population. The percentage of the population that is susceptible to a disease the percent of the population that is infectious and the percent of the population that is recovered and they add up to one hundred percent. According to their model an epidemic ends when the percentage of the population that recovers and is immune is increasing to such a level that leaves less people that are susceptible and those susceptible people are then less likely to be exposed to those that are infected. Now there are much more complex models. There's what's known as compartmental model called Se. I H F R or s this for susceptible e is exposed is infected. H is hospitalized. F is dead but not buried and our is recovered or buried a lot more complexity there in this episode we're going to look at how narratives stories impact financial decisions and they act very similarly to a disease virus in terms of how they spread and then fall back and the epidemic ends now that the global economy has been shut down for a month or more government officials have to decide. How are they going to restart the economy and as citizens we have to decide? How actively are we willing to participate in the economy in terms of going out in public again? There are several scenarios that very much depend on what percent of the population is susceptible versus having recovered. It's possible there are millions millions. That were ASEP dramatic and so we have heard immunity or perhaps not the economy could be opened up again to let the virus spread. There could be a second wave. And there's the risk of overwhelming the healthcare system so that there's a spike in death because a large percentage of the population is still susceptible or the economy could open up and deaths don't spike because the virus has been spreading for months and a large percentage of individuals are already immune that would mean that the overall mortality rate is much lower closer to that of the flu because so many people have had it and we know approximately how many people have died or and this is probably what's going to happen. We're going to open up. The economy gradually and see how things evolve. There's a great deal of uncertainty before we continue. Let me pause and share some words from one of this week sponsors policy genius. There's things that we look back on and think how could I be so wrong? The truth is we're always going to get things wrong. That's just life but there are also things we can get right on the first try like shopping for life
Witness: El Chapo's wife was in on plans for prison escape
"Young wife who's kind of mother to his two young girls. We did hear a couple of weeks ago, but she had passed her phone to her Dodd who was a drug trafficker and aiding and communication with them. But she's kind of hasn't been really held kind of. We're not she doesn't seem culpable and really any of this kind of oil change this morning. So we heard that she was when Chappell was behind bars in two thousand fifteen at altiplano maximum-security. She was passing messages from him two sons and is associates and kind of aiding in the court coordination his escape. So you might have read about it or seen in the Netflix show chapel is came. From his prison in two thousand fifteen through a mile and a half long tunnel, which was built under the prison and led right up to showering his cell, which was was the only part of the cell that wasn't covered by CC TV. And so on July eleven twenty fifteen he climbed into the tunnel. He met chat Emma's brother on a motorbike who drove him through tunnel mile and a half to a warehouse was picked up there and transported to the mountains and putting a plan back home. But we found it today that the way they were able to build this tunnel, which was like ventilated lighting is because chapel sons bought land that was surrounding the prison, and then they were free to do what they want, and what was kinda crazy. Yeah. It's like, you know, this is really no secret. You know, the witness said today that inmates in the prison where like complaining about the noise from all the construction of this tunnel. And but yeah, indeed it was Emma who was who was communicating. Sons they buy the land next to the prison. So they can dig a tunnel for all chop to escape. Nice. Right. It's it's it's so hard. What?
