"In the office or i'm done at pathway. Typically how it goes this week It's monday through wednesday and then pathway thursday friday so we are really trying to just kinda hone processes like for example when we first started out when we're double arch. I'm doing the surgery. And i'm also doing the conversions light because the team didn't know didn't know that part of it We have some fantastic Can serve dri assistance coming from other offices but they just didn't of the process stuff so that it was okay train one of the assistants to do that. And then we got we brought in a lab tech So then that kinda helped out things. As far short appointment times we've subsequently moved onto different things. Trent trying to maximize our time and and down surgery. Time one of the biggest issues we run into. When i'm doing surgery. I can't be doing consults at the same time. And so it's how do you. How do you dovetail these things of keeping concerts in the pipeline. Because that's going to be basically the life blood of the practice as well as then delivering all the care so as we're getting shorter and shorter surgical that. I can step out of the room. That's gonna help. But this is just an ever evolving process. And if you figure out how to run the schedule as far because maximizing time and not being in the office but being really productive. I'm all ears to it. Well i'm certainly not. I have my own opinions on that. But i'm not the master. You know what i'm trying to do is have surgery days and have non surgery days or times afternoons blocks and as you as you're right about this. I think a challenge that dentists face that as they get into these more complex care cases whether it's smile makeovers whether it's full full mouth of general dentistry. Whether it's full arch implant cases is the ability to step out of the room doesn't exist. And that's why. I believe oral surgeons are the most efficient practitioners in dentistry is. Because they don't they they go in and they do their work and then they exit and once they exit the room they are. There's essentially no coming back. But here's what i heard from you. Because earlier you mentioned going from zero to fifty to one hundred hundred two hundred to five hundred whatever the number may beep is. You had to train your team so you got started with. Who got you there. And then you had to train team and some people weren't trainable so they probably got left or left. Then you added a lab technician talked about. How important is it when you're starting to do a volume number of these cases. Is it to have a laboratory on either on on demand available or on site fully. Well i think with our model serving a certain patient populations dentures. It's relatively imperative to have have like an onsite removable lab that being said. There's not a huge crossover between removable lab technicians that understand all of next process. There's a little bit of of of cross talker communication there. But there's a whole subset of removable people that would love to learn how to do all the fixed off. And then you have all the old school analog fixed guys that would love to learn how to use x academy digital. I think they can in in finding these little gems that no all of that stuff. I would say it's important. It's going to be important for us when we get to a certain stage to have that in house currently right now we have a removable ab But for the fixed up we bring in I mean we will utilize other labs as far as getting us to to manufacturer are Cases stuff like that. So if i'm a practitioner who wants to get more into june who's a general dentist who wants to develop their implant side of their office I i know one person who has really brought that whole thing in house that is i would say a full scope general dentist. I think. Otherwise if you're doing one case a month or whatever it might be. I would just develop a really good relationship with a local lab where they can do the setup for you they come in and help with the conversion they will come over and help with the final impression especially especially as you're getting going if you don't fully understand each one of those stops is having that really strong team is gonna be so beneficial then. You're that first case you might be doing you know just breaking. Even that's okay that case with your before and after photos and everything that's going to sell your next two cases and then those next two cases are going to sell your next four cases so i think one of those things as far as the starting offer trying to develop that with like this implant dentistry stuff is just getting your rapson. And i'm i'm kind of like fading away a little bit from where what no no. It's perfect. But the i i for those young implant out there. Just get your wrexham. I agree Thank you Each and every week for listening please reach out. Let us know what's on your mind what you wanna learn what she wants to do. You know if this resonated with you but listen you. It's time to get up off the floor. It's time to start breathing. Some normal air and get into that growth mindset and move back into our best lives so have a great week.

"Whether it's just showing up in bringing the team starbucks or figuring out what's on the other guys play that you can maybe take off of it or I mean there's a million things going on at the office all the time and the last thing someone needs. Hey can i come in and just hang out and walk and then pick. Your brain is like yeah. That's totally fine. I mean i get it. Because i was in the same place in so when people ask me that people come to the office all the time to say on watch surgery but it's one of those things where it's like realistically if you want to build a little bit of a relationship i guess you could call it like a mentor. Just trying to figure out how to how to make life easier for the other person and as opposed to kind of. Hey i want to show up. And i wanna kinda like gain from you and then it's like well that's not necessarily always feel good so Researching about the person letting them know that you think that they're like the real deal and y you really want to spend time with them On three go a little bit but say that unless you're coming to t. Buns off missing along the same lines. Because i'm always for the most part. I'm very happy to have people come in watch and what happens for me is is somebody will say. Hey i want to come. And then the worked fridays. I'm like no. I've actually had somebody say. Can you work friday. And i'm like no. I worked hard not to have to work fridays And i have a second job. So i always say make it easy for somebody a lot of people that have lots of great. In fact i'll argue. There are hidden gems. That are so good at what they do. I'm thinking of a dentist. Friend of mine mark bowman in greenville north carolina. Who is so at what he does but yet so few people have quote unquote because they're not on social media. They're not out there touting themselves we sometimes they need to be pushed by somebody like me i want to go learn soft tissue grafting from mark and i just need to get on the phone and make it easy for them like you said you know. Say hey i'll show up when you tell me to show up. I'll bring something for you and your team. I'm gonna make sure you look good. I'm going to be quiet. Not getting the way you know just just enough to break that ice and then once you get there you can just do what you wanna do. But i think sometimes it's getting over that even as mentors that fear of having somebody else come watch you like. Hey it's going to be a disruption. And i think just addressing those things like i'm not here to maybe a disruption if something happens i can step out of the room you know you tell me when to be there. What time to be there. And i'll make it as unobtrusive as possible. And i think that goes a long way because otherwise people think like i mean because the days busy enough as it is the last thing you really mentally want is. Oh my god i got somebody else i gotta entertain while they're here and so. I thought that would be my advice to kind of build on what you're talking about there. All right so kind of kind of say the last thing but another point i want to talk about is all right. So talk to me about being an implant only practice and that process of opening the startup and getting to the point where you maybe say no to some things and all just kind of give us the how. How did you get your practice to this point. You know opening a year ago. That i was fortunate to be partnered with What i felt was a really good business theme. They'd been investors in a lot of other companies Prior to getting into incidental so Just having a good can outlook having deeper pockets kind of whether the storm There's that side of it. Which i felt fortunate to be part of i think on the other side of it just goes back to really trying to build a solid team We don't have anyone that we started with But the right there the right team to get started and i want to interrupt you for second chris interrupt. Sorry i think that's such an important point is so many people they get stuck in moving forward because they're looking for the perfect fit and instead what they need to look at is canvas person. Get me to the next step to prove the concept proved the point and then whether they stay or don't stay we'll we'll find a way to get beyond that and i think that's so important it's about getting getting to that next step in sports teams of the best. This they'll bring in a player that is a one year contract because it gets them to the next step and the next step isn't always winning the championship. But i continue on. I just wanted to bring up that point because it's such an important point that you can't be looking for perfect the gotta be looking for the next step one hundred percent so We had our team. And then subsequently i mean just like you're saying we've had different players going to jump in and jump out but as far as you know getting from zero to fifty k fifty eight hundred k as far as per month collections. One hundred to two hundred two hundred three hundred four hundred bus mon- two months ago five ten or something like that but it's just one of those things where you know we're actually in that team and realistically like okay. Is this going to be the same team that gets us to the next step. Maybe not but Yeah you just got to keep moving. And what is your typical day. What did you typically. not even a day. What does your typical week look like how. How much are you working. How caso kind of set the stage bait okay. I'm gonna. I'm gonna give you. I'm trying to get. He wants to know what it's like with no hygiene mckay may actually have hygiene. No my point being is my point and asking some of these questions. Because i'm trying to pick your brain for my own practice is for every case you do. There is so many patients who have to see in screen to get to this point and so many follow ups and everything to get to the final edge. So what is a typical week. How do you structure your week to be able to be as most efficiently and to serve your market the best. We're really working on that. So i think. I think trying to develop a schedule that allows us to work really efficiently and maximize everybody's time For the patients in for myself in the team..

"In affordable doctors and we do everything implant related new restorative dentistry as far as from cranham ridge route or anything like that And so we started january of twenty twenty and then the plan is to open some more offices. And we just had our second location. Open in milwaukee with dr frank caputo and then the plan is a couple more office here in the valley and we have a couple of other guys lined up In different parts of the country that want to join the team. So let me ask you this A lot of dentists who people in general they wanna make they wanna make a physical move to another city but there's a lot of fear in doing so in a lot of stress in that and it sounds like you've done it several times. Now talk to you about how. How how did you do that. What went through your mind. How did you overcome the fear. It and for you i mean. There's there's another wrinkle in your kids are in another state so talk to us about that. Part of it yeah. It wasn't something that was planned. It was more along the lines. Of just feeling. Like i'm i'm happiest when i'm growing and For whatever reason just feel like. I've just been kind of on the journey trying to learn more and be butter and just different opportunities. Kind of come up It wasn't the plan necessarily move around so much Other than just kind of where things have taken me I remember in dental school. One of my professors told him. I was gonna leave and go out to. Denver is like oh you don't wanna do that. You want to stay here in iowa. You'll make plenty of money There's not that many donald trump's is you're gonna go out there and it's gonna be saturated. There's tons of competition and i went out there and i mean everybody kind of made. It seem scary. And then you go out there and you treat people right and you do a good job and you start together a little following and and i talked to some some of my buddies who are out in southern california. It's one of those things where one of them commented. There's always room for another good dentist thing doing a good job and treat people that you want to be treated. There's there's really no issue as far as going to where you wanna live and then making half which is what my grandpa always told me. You're got where you wanna love and then just make it happen. You know it's interesting. You say that. Because you're in a market number one scottsdale arizona which is probably more saturated outside. The southern california probably more saturated with dentists that any other place. And then you're serving a specific niche within dentistry. That has probably more competition than a lot of areas. You've got clear choice. You've got affordable you've got other. You got oral surgeons general dentists. You got people like me. You've got other companies like you. I think that's a valid point to make that it's it's There's there's there's a wide open market everywhere. If you really find your niche and you treat people well you provide a fair service and all of those things now along those lines. You didn't come out of dental school with the skill sets to do full arch implant surgeries to do art restorations. Walk us through kind of your what you would recommend to others or your journey in learning the clinical skills that it took to get here I felt really fortunate. Coming out of iowa that i had a really strong surgical backgrounds. I thought the oral surgery department there. was absolutely fantastic. So as far as As a basic surgical skills as far as donncha lane flaps suturing things. Along those lines. Until i got a fairly solid solid base at the time going through dental school. I thought implants looked unbelievably boring. Watch the payroll residents like ours drilling this hole. And i was like what is going on here. And then i'd watch the world surgery residents and just kind of fly through it because they were getting onto their next case. It's like i don't know other than i think. We restored these my requirements. It was restored to single units and then it over and we didn't even know implants were in dental school. Quite frankly yeah i just i don't know that it was also just like this mystique whereas like hey. This isn't really for you so like don't even bother like really looking and i was like okay. I'm have more fun just taking not so after after that i mean implants didn't really come on my radar and phil I was out in colorado. I was restoring a ton of astra cases Because that was one of the main groups that we worked with donald office And so i just became more and more fluent in the language of implants and implant technology. A little bit. Is that going to open up to me. And then spending time with some of my mentors ended up going the surgical session of implant southway into a maxi. The las vegas mexico with With john mena chetty in saint greier. done a lot of just my own Just gonna study. As far as i've got my own little library of books That i love And then i've tried to make a point to build relationships to be able to get into other surgeons offices think that's one of my most favorite things to do is go around the country and spend a day with someone that i look up to her. I think is doing things the right way or written papers on certain techniques. And i've just been really really fortunate and blessed to how how a network of people that i can reach out to See how people are doing things. I mean i would. I would love to come out. I know we were chatting at At pathway. And you're kind of watching some of the things that i was doing and you're kind of picking my brain on x. y. or z. And you're like yeah. I would never do it. I'd do it this way i was like. Oh that's interesting. And i just love those conversations because it just gets you thinking about doing something a little bit differently and there's not necessarily a right way or a wrong way but there's lots of ways to get to the same point i want to ask you a question You made me think of something there. So you talked about this network and asking lot of so. So it's interesting. I'm coming back out to pathway. By the way i wanna make another the plug here. You know to a certain degree me and just in moody pathway we to a certain degree we play in the same space in terms of implant training but we work so well together. And i'm going out there to learn from you and justin on because i'm gonna do external sinus lifts so i'm excited to go out there and may to do that but i was at dinner the other night with my oral surgeon and and we're supposed to go to cancun together right. After that. So i'm actually flying to cancun from phoenix. And he said hey. What do you do out in phoenix. I'm like i'm going to do sinus. Lifts he goes. Why don't you come up with the office. Teach how to do that. And i was like well. That's interesting because that's how i learned and you kind of mentioned that while you have didactic training and i had didactic training. A lot of the learning does come from spending time individually. How would you recommend to somebody. That doesn't have a built in network. Like you. And i do where because of some of the things that we've done or the places that we put because by the way none of us were born with this. We put ourselves in position to get these. What would you tell somebody that says that wants to go. Learn and see how others are doing. What's the best way to approach someone else about coming to watch them whether that's in your market or You know whether you fly somewhere to do it. I think you just have to figure out how to bring value to the other person so.

"You haven't cheated. You haven't quite cheated on me yet but that's okay But listen this week. We have a phenomenal. Gastaud are going to be talking with dr chris barrett who runs a practice called brightly dentures and the implant center in scottsdale arizona. And i wanted to bring chris on. Because i've met him. I've seen him on instagram and facebook and social media kind. Like we've seen everybody. But i finally got to meet him a few weeks back on a trip out to implant pathway few weeks ago in phoenix and we really got to talking and he's doing some unique things and i really wanted to bring him on and talk about it. So if you're trying to grow your implant business. This is a great interview. If you're trying to move your practice towards doing lots and lots in almost exclusively implants is a definitely great interview for you. But even if you say hey i'm not a surgical oriented person but i think there's going to be a lot to learn even regardless of what you're trying to move your practice towards because ultimately the stories the same So we're going to bring chris on in a minute but before we do. Let's of course get to our sponsor of the podcast which is three dentists. And let's go to meredith. Hi everyone we get started. I have a couple of things I have a review of three d. Dentists from dr shun. He said just coming back from the weekend at the digital implant continuum course. Everything was so helpful and well explained you have all the opportunities to ask the questions you want it and they will take time to answer them to ruin and the instructors and mentors were very hands on and great showing you. The tips and tricks will definitely recommend if you're looking to advance your skills to treat your patients. Shout out to sully and his hibachi cooking sills that breaks your heart as a line cook and training over here. We have a chef on the team. So but listen listen to more. Somebody else can do the better all right. Hey well before we get started. Our digital plant continuing for the summer at the retreat is sold out but we do have spots for the fall and rooms to stay with us so excellent all right so let's go ahead and bring on and introduce guests duct chris. 'but chris how're you doing man. I can't complain you know. Life is good and You know a little muggy outside today. But i was. I was wondering why you have that beard when it's probably what ninety five hundred degrees In scottsdale by now just trimmed it part of the leaving when yeah sixty five. They don't wanna see some young kid with no beard. That's true. listen. I'm gonna start painting black into my beard. Start painting gray into your beard here. Oh my goodness well. It's not as humid there either. Dry dry dry humid here. Yeah all right well. Let's get into the right now. Fifty eight. Well let's get into today's conversation and We were sitting at a little drinking establishment. Last time we were there. I was drinking water just so everybody knows. We started having this conversation around how you got from dental school to arizona. And i found this story. I quite fascinating. So can you share that with us. Sure I have a relatively unorthodox story as far as i wasn't sure what i want to do after dental school. My grandpa was a dentist. I grew up in davenport iowa which is over on the eastern eastern side of the state on the on. The mississippi guy annoy border so after dental school i thought about maybe going into a specialty strand. Do something like surgery of. I wasn't sure what i wanna do. So i did. A gp are everyone that I kind of thought as a mentor and dental school. That had done juicy are really enjoyed. Really enjoy time. So after the gp are and up going out to Colorado all my siblings had moved out there And it was just one of those things where i kind of found myself in cross. Practice is a solely restorative Office with three. Gp's they taught different levels of basically a collusion full arch dentistry And it was heavily based out of These matha logical principles that were found by this kind of famous prostate Niles boucher so spent three years there and It was. I didn't know i needed it at the time but i one hundred percent did that as far as understanding joints and muscles inclusion and it really helps me understand a treatment planning comprehensive and then i went through divorce and i ended up switching practice to I had put kinda surgery stuff on the shelf for those three years. When i was with that practice and i ended up joining a buddy who is fears ahead of me at iowa and Got into doing in surgery doing both surgical and the restored of side of it at that point in time after my divorce ended up living with a bio horizon rep which throws like a little interesting thing into the story as far as that opened up the doors for as Just new contacts. I was actually listening to the a. Id podcast with dustin moody daime domain in one of moody's When moody was doing all history and he was running around with a guy named mike prime oath and they did a lot of their training together. Choice in mich- all this other stuff so might be a really big mentor of mine. And i spent a lot of time in practice as much time with the code. Just trying to see what this guy was doing. That really stretched my mind as far as what was possible. is a high level choice trained us that was doing full arch implant dentistry in one room and doing set of ears another room and on hygiene and other and i was like. Wow this sounds horrible to me. Sounds like that sounds like my day this week. I was not happy about it yet that i really wanted to do. It allowed me to see that there is lots of potential as far as What you can do is a jerk. And so i ended up Three that contacts a meeting moody and then subsequently went up and took over moody's implant practice in rapid city south dakota at that time i was Flying down to arizona to help mentor don implant pathway and then at two kids back in iowa so i was flying back i would see the kids once a month and so after a year and a half or so two years. It was one of those things where it made more sense to be down in arizona. Fulltime just This is going to be a little bit. Easier home base So two years ago. I moved down here in an apartment with a private equity group to start A implant focused office that something between like a clear choice.

"Requires reworking the whole logistical routing of how their trucks and storage facilities operate, where reopening fairly quickly, and that's causing a few adjustment problems. Just as it settled out quickly a year ago. It will work out quickly now, too, but it doesn't happen overnight. Will the labour issue also, you think sort itself out relatively quickly, because what we have heard is that a lot of people left the restaurant industry and found jobs elsewhere, better paying jobs, maybe with better conditions. Yeah, I think the labor part is going to be a big issue. I think once schools reopen in August September that will make it a little bit easier for many families. But you're absolutely right that again. Restaurant workers and grocery workers were essential workers who fell ill at a greater rate than the rest of us did. And they realize now that they're running some risks, and they want compensation for that, And they found alternative work in the meantime, so the the restaurant industry is probably going to have to increase wages on average. To bring people back into its workforce, and it's going to need to wait for for some improvement in care for dependents before people are fully returning to the labor force. So what's your prediction? I mean, we've seen prices go up. Do you think that that will be a sustained issue or what? Do you think that things will, by and large go back to the way they were before? Things are going to go back by and large the way they were before. Prices have gone up largely for reasons entirely independent of the pandemic, largely, frankly, because China has recovered economically much faster than the rest of the world has And China had gotten not just clobbered by the pandemic, but also by African swine fever, which killed off a large share of its of its hog population. China is the biggest pork consumer and producer in the world. And as China's pork production has begun to recover rapidly, its demand for feed grains has just exploded, and that's been bidding up the price of corn and soy globally and pulling up lots of other commodity prices. I'm wondering if there are any lessons or takeaways about our food supply chain that you have mistakes we can avoid and future emergencies or just maybe things that we should be doing differently now. Yeah, I think two of the big lessons that we've learned and then a third. That's more settled one of the big lessons as we often worried about concentration. For antitrust reasons. We worried that firms that control too much of the market can extract an awful lot of profit either from farmers or from consumers. But we are awakens now to the problems associated with resilience of the system. If you have just a few nodes that can shut down easily a few meatpacking plants that get shut down because of a disease outbreak on the packing line or now from hackers. Second big thing is, I think we're going to come to appreciate what a crucial role labor place especially from the relatively lower paid lower skilled Workforce that is in farming and food manufacturing in parts of food service. The more subtle point is that the food systems actually remarkably resilient. I mean, the fact that you couldn't get the variety of pasta you wanted in the midst of the worst pandemic any of us have seen in our lifetimes. Is not exactly a great problem to face, so we need to be careful about overreacting to the temporary and frankly, relatively modest problems we saw in the food system. Due to the pandemic disruptions in this country. That is a good note to end it on Chris Barrett is an agricultural.

Burn knows a thing or two about produce delivery. He's president of Total Quality Logistics, which arranges the transport that gets food from producers to suppliers to restaurants like to Milanese. We move currently over half a million truckloads of refrigerated products. Obviously, that's almost all food and food related. We're seeing complete disruption across the supply chain, he says. This kind of freight usually moves predictably and reliably, but the disruption caused by a spike in demand on top of a nationwide Labour shortage across the entire food industry is wreaking havoc. Remember that chicken breast? The actual plant doesn't know when they're going to be able to process enough chicken. To fill a truck. So then you know, provider like ourselves has to make sure that that truck is there. You know, when it was supposed to pick up today at noon, it might not be able to be filled until noon on Sunday, which means that the product is getting To the fruit service providers in the restaurants in an erratic kind of fashion. Testy 123 for Mary had a little lamb at the far end of the food supply chain are people like Greg Newhall of Windy and Ranch in Central Washington State? We're a small farm operation growing primarily Beef, pork, lamb goat. Chickens. Most of Newhall sales are directly to consumers not to restaurants. But his business has been knocked about by both the pandemic and the recovery. People don't understand how Unstable and insecure. The supply chain is That isn't to say that people are going to starve, but they may be eating all that meets or peanut butter rather than ground beef. Newhall says he hasn't had any issues raising his animals. It's the processing and shipping. That's the bottleneck as the industry's biggest players pay top dollar to secure their own supply chains if you want to butchery beef Some of the state processors. Are literally booked early 2021, but 2022 so windy and ranch is building its own butcher shop. It's a big investment for a small player like us, but we felt it was necessary. In order to have the stability that we need to function. A spokesman for the National Chicken Council said that among the corporate scale producers they represent supply chain issues are leading to a tight chicken market, but also pointed to the Air fryer Revolution and the chicken sandwich wars. The meat giant. Tyson also says some of its roosters are Underperforming now, for a big picture view on all this. We called up Chris Barrett. He's an agricultural economist. I asked him what the biggest food supply issues are right now. So today we're struggling to get people back fully to work because they don't have child care or elder care for their loved ones. Those haven't fully reopened. Second people are nervous about going back to work in crowd facing service industries, and there's also the readjustment of the manufacturing processes. Restaurants are quickly opening back up. The food manufacturers and processors have to retool to begin to supply again the bulk packaged products that are being used by institutional food service providers. So I want to focus on the restaurant industry four moment What I seem to hear you say specifically to to their concerns is that you know, they actually get supplied in a different way than than me or you do when we go shopping. Yeah. Keep in mind that the commodity that's produced on the farm gets transformed before chose up either grocery store or.

it completely but this afternoon around four o'clock when he speaks to the country for the first time in his new job we will get more of an idea of what he intends to do with the power he has long

referring to you said the Amazons Facebook's Google apple of the world one of the worried about specifically were they concerned about it well the concern here is that these companies have become so big and so powerful serve rich that is becoming very very difficult to to compete with them sorry we simply want to know where the companies like Google using that dominance over the search engine industry to favor their own products is one concern that I can get companies I am as in for perhaps using its market place to favorites products and then you have companies like Facebook who have long been accused of seeing compact this is that many challenges that dominance in social media and I the buying them or sixty copying some of their ideas vessel this probe is going to look into and I think was going to make these companies particularly nervous is that there isn't any specific allegation that they're looking at directly so this is a broad look at how the companies have become so powerful and a broad look at what they perhaps due to remain in that position of power such a general review as well as you say so what are they hoping for what's the the end goal Hey sanctions on the companies if they find anything very good question and there are you know there are things they could do depend on the result of the investigation that could be penalties that could be kind of

"I I like that. They gotta pay you for that trademark. That's pretty good. We're in talks real good one thing. I wanted to mention this is firmly in the room or category. But I thought it'd be fun to just bandy about a bit a Reddit user by the name of a non the nine who has broken news bungee related news on read it in the past and has been accurate. Has said that destiny three is in production. I guess, duh. I guess would be. Although, you know, you never know 'cause could turn into a game as service, and who knows maybe that's part of what we'll talk about is whether a numbered sequel is the right move for destiny. But some interesting details there is obviously no target release year yet so destiny to still has a couple of other big expansions to come. And you know, the game will be supported, but they are revving up the engines for destiny three whatever that will end up being and supposedly it will take place on a planet that has been referenced in the university medal, blah interesting thing is it will supposedly feature a Peavey E V P zone. So this is player versus environment. Versus players. You guys are everybody is hanging out attacking the a the the video game itself. And then other players from. Different factions can come in and everybody can fight everybody. So this reminds one of something like you would find in the division the dark zone, which was had problems at launch evidently, the leaker stresses. It won't be like the dark zone so not like the dark zone. But the game director supposedly is Chris Barrett. Not loose myth of love a big role. And what do you guys think? Allegra. What do you think about destiny going to another numbered sequel first of all and second of all what do you think about that kind of evidently, there'll be more RPG elements in it'll be more like PV VP. I can't with this p p thing. It sounds like a chemistry problem that would freak me out. And I can we reduce that fraction a little bit. With something not nec- to fight it by at least one. Yeah. I mean, I think we're in this weird place where ongoing persistent games that sort of that sort of thing, right? Like multi player games. And everything has to have a persistent online component. Like, obviously fallout seventy six that's gonna be an online multiplayer game in a series. That's you know, been known for single player destiny has been online game since the get go. That's pretty much in the core. But to me, it's always like, okay. We'll we have moral warcraft. Right. Like that's the biggest deal. And of course, they keep integrating with expansions. But there hasn't been a need to make a while to write and destiny to destiny aren't as large as that. And at some point for console games. Obviously destinies on PC now. Console. I games. There's some all that you hit. I guess where it's like, okay. We have to jump even Baker. Like we have to move to the next phase. We can't just keep iterating on this forever. But it I just think it's kind of interesting that we need to sneak three when I think just need to for a lot of people as improved upon the first one also like they activision blizzard there, you know, they hooked up and overwatch isn't getting an overwatch to write like, I'm here is to see if bungee with destiny will ever move into a state where it's like, okay. This is the thing will just keep giving expansions. And it'll just live on this weird space planet business in. We're gonna just leave it there. But yeah, I think having a full fledged sequel that sounds like it's going to have a lot of new stuff in it makes sense. But I'm just here. Like, I don't wanna buy another game. Yeah. I hear ya. I it's interesting. I you make a great point about a activision blizzard. For some reason, the the communication doesn't cross over those two entities. Right.
