"Me this every week we just stop embarrassing me of course I don't remember last week's puzzler. You're just trying to embarrass you and make me look stupider than I am. Well, you don't have to do that. Well, all right, I won't anymore. Well, anyway, it had to do with lugging the engine. That is the practice of putting one's engine on one's back. And lugging it down the stairs. Yeah. Yeah, I remember this. The question that was a two part question? I don't even remember, but I'm reading my notes here. My copious notes. And I think we wanted to know why lugging the engine is bad for the engine. I think I explained what lugging is. No, as a matter of fact, someone stopped me out in the street the other day and said, I think I know the answer to the question. Right, you big lug? Lugging the engine was bad for the engine because it puts too much of a strain on the engine, he said. Yes. And I said you don't win the price for that kind of a sloppy answer. Well, it does put too much of a strain on the wallet. But what's the result of putting too much? Who cares if you put too much strain on the engine? Who cares if you put too much strain on the engine? It's an angel. It's an inanimate object. You're going to complain? No. So what? What's the result of that? It's not the same as putting too much strain on a person? That's right. Who would complain? So why is it bad to put too much strain on the engine? You're asking me? I don't know. Well, I was just hoping that you might be able to. That was the answer. You're trying to probe because the engine overheats. And one of the reasons that overheats is that the combustion because the you have slow the pistons down, you're making the engine running a very slow speed with a lot of charge and you've got the gas pedal down to the floor, you're sucking in a lot of gasoline in the air, creating a big explosion in your allowing it to stay in the cylinders for too long and it overheats the engine instead of doing its work, pushing the piston down and right out the tailpipe. It's staying in there too long. This was a good for you motorhead's. I mean, I'm sure. This was a good puzzler. Yeah, it was. Didn't last long, but it was a good puzzle. Too bad we couldn't milk it for two or three months like we do some of the other. Do we have a winner? Oh, you ask me this all the time too. I have no department. The winner? Yes, we have a winner. Tell them what they want, Johnny. The winner is character. What? Karen Olivia, just imagine. Someone named Karen Olivia from San Antonio, Texas, a sitting by her radio listening avidly to every pearl of wisdom that falls from our lips. And she hears her very own name announced as the winner to the puzzler and she says, my God, how lucky San Antonio Texas. And she actually dropped us a little note. She said, dear ray and Tommy, I already have your mediocre book. Can I have one of your lousy t-shirts and stuff? And the answer is yes. In fact, it's cheaper, isn't it to send a T-shirt? It's lighter. It's supposed to just, oh, we get them on the postage and handling. We should mention that when you win the puzzler, we do send you the book or the T-shirt. But the postage and handling, but I'm sure they won't mind. It's all for a good cause. It is. You and me? Well, we have a new puzzle coming up, so make sure you stay tuned for that. But in the meantime, if you want to talk to us the number is one 803 three two 9 two 8 7. You know, I can't tell you how relieved I am and what a pleasant show this has been so far that you haven't read any mail. I don't have any good mail. I mean, should I put out another call? No, no, no. It's a great mail. I have not received any I've had to write my own mail. Actually. You want me to read one of those? No. One 803 three two 9 two 8 two. I wrote a rant and rave letter actually. We'll get to that in a minute. This is very important. We'll get to it during the break. Hello. Hello, you're on car talk. Hi. Hi, who's this? This is Susie Phillips. Where are you from Susie? From Columbus, Ohio. One bus. How are you doing, say something like Ohio Columbus, so that's all right. No, I'm not going to. I'm going to bite my tongue. Is that Ohio Columbus? What's up Susie? Well, I have a 1981 Volvo deal. Which I love. It's been a great car. Nothing's ever gone wrong with it. But it's getting really rusty. So there you go. And they get ugly when they get rusty. And they don't start out too good to begin with. In terms of the looks department. Right. Well, that's kind of part of what I'm going to discuss here. Yeah, we're ready. Okay. Well, the manufacturer named my car color felt far beige. Beige. That's the color that's not supposed to show the rust. Because it looks like.

"Air. It just won't start. You just grind and grind and absolute nothing happens. And the only the only solution I found is I just get a hairdryer out and warmer up good right in the middle of the distributive cap. As she fires right off, smoother silk. Oh, good. Okay. Some orange little fire, I guess those are marginal days when it's a little damp or has band. And it'll get going and after just about 5 or maybe three or four minutes, it will maybe I'll come to stop. It'll get real rough. Why don't you get out on me? Why don't you buy yourself a 12 Volt hairdryer? And then you can mount it right under the hood. A little timer. You wouldn't even have to get out. And you could wire it right to the key when you turn the key to the on position. That heat up could just blast onto the distributor and you would have a problem. Now I would ask you a question in your I know what the answer is going to be. This is going to be yes. Have you changed the or has anyone changed the spark plug wires? Yes. I know that. I'm going to ask you another question. And I think your answer is going to be not too long. How long have you owned this car? Since 75. 19 years. 15 years. I never had a starting problem at all until I had a real severe miss about a year ago, they put a new distributor cap on. And then during that period, I had various other problems of rough running and lots of things lots of points and things replaced. But the problem with starting on damp days never happened until that new distributor cap. And how long ago was that? Oh, probably a year. And have you ever replaced that distributor cap since? The one they put up the new one? Yeah, no, it looks good. Looks good. Yeah. My brother does too. You can't let that fool you, man. Don't judge a book by its cover. Well, I mean, when indeed have a cracked cap, but if you did, in all likelihood, it would run poorly even warmed up. All right. Okay, though. You say you have many you've had many sets of points changed. Have you changed any condensers in this time? Well, they did a condenser, I believe, when they put the cap on the condenser in points. They did. And those points have been in there since 75. No, those points have been in there since a year ago. Yeah, but that's not many miles. There's not many miles, but during all that time, you have had this problem. Yes. So I mean, it seems to me that something they did during that tune up. Whatever they need. For example, if you had a bad ground on the condenser or if you had points that were mis gapped or some other bad connection, you might get enough spark on a dry day to make the thing start and run okay. On a wet day, however, when you have a drop in spark voltage because of the very nature of moisture in the air, then you're going to get a situation where it doesn't start. It's that you dry everything off. And it isn't that you're drawing the faulty thing off. You're drawing off the wires, which are responsible for a little bit of voltage loss of the plugs, but even perfect wires are going to do that. You're just what are you doing? You're alleviating any situation that's not really responsible for the problem. It's a palliative, I think, is the word you're seeking. Yeah, something like that. I mean, have you brought this to you a mechanic? Well, I talked to him about it. The guy that put the cap on and he keeps telling me about these sprays, the ignition spread. Stinking sprays. I pray that with those with WD I mean, here's what he's got to check. He's got to check to make sure that the condenser is screwed down tight. He's going to make sure that all the tune up stuff that he did is, in fact, correct, like the point gap and all that business. He's going to make sure that you don't have a cracked coil. That you don't have a cracked distributor cap. And all of these things are relatively simple to check and it's guaranteed to be one of those. Absolutely. In fact, I mean, you could replace all of it for 50 bucks and Mercedes. 500, 500 bucks. No, but you know what the problem is? The water is getting someplace. It would be interesting. Next time before you take out the hairdryer, take off the distributor cap and see if the moisture is in fact inside. It's a bit of a spot. Because something is not adjusted right, or something is faulty. I check inside that cap once and it looks pretty good. I believe I know that. I believe that. Yeah. Van, new points, new condenser, and that's going to fix it. Okay. Thanks for your call. Thanks, man. Bye. Bye bye. I'm sorry. Hey, we've got more calls in the puzzler answer coming up right after this..

"For tech companies. You are not yet profitable, right? Is there a path to profitability that is clear that you can clearly see? We haven't shared our profitability numbers, but we're doing very, very well. Nitro is a very healthy business. It's growing very fast and I'm very excited that we've been able to find real success in building a business by creating more value for our customers. So that we can really just focus on making something that people love. Do you see, I mean, you mentioned you get acquired, you go public. So there's a chance you could be running a public company in the next couple of years. I mean, there's only two ways that this goes. Yeah. When you think about this journey that you took, you know, you got to Berkeley, you were like 20 and the Bay Area and living with all these people and you didn't have the best fanciest degree and you were so young and here you are. You're still so young and you've built not one, two huge companies. One is massive $15 billion valuation. And social media, which is really hard to break to break into. As we know, the graveyard of social media companies is vast. Wide and deep. And here you are. You've done it. Twice. How much of that do you think has to do with, you know, how hard you work now smart you are and how much do you think has to do with luck? Oh, I think it has a lot to do with luck. I think that, you know, I worked hard and I think I got lucky again with having good genes and being able to be smart. But so much of my life in hindsight are unplanned situations where I took a leap and things kind of worked out and those leaps were out of my control. And so I think there's a tremendous amount of luck involved and it keeps me humble because, you know, I've been successful, but I've also had enough situations where I thought I was going to make the right call. And it ended up not being right. And one of the biggest lessons that I've learned over my career is that being right and being wrong, don't feel that different before you know the answer. Yeah. So I have an appreciation for luck. You know, I grew up my dad was a small business owner, my grandfather was a small business owner. Like I knew that you could build a business in America and have a good life by doing it and that and that was kind of the path I wanted to take and I got lucky that I sort of stumbled my way to Silicon Valley and all the dots kind of connected but it's been a wild ride. That's Jason citron cofounder and CEO of Discord. And by the way, there's something like 4 billion minutes of conversation and 6 billion messages on Discord every single day.

"Play games on those devices are quite different than mobile devices, you tend to sit for longer amount of time. You can have deeper experiences and the idea I had was what if we built the gaming business that was more like traditional kind of video games but on tablets as opposed to kind of the mobile games which I have been doing before, which were more kind of bite sized, pick up and play ideas. So that was basically your idea to start a company where you would do multiplayer games for tablets. Yeah, and the thesis there was I studied entertainment businesses and I realized that the ones that end up being around for a long time tend to have some kind of durable advantage beyond just a single title. It's changing a bit now with games as a service, but a decade ago, video game businesses that were around for a long time tended to have a distribution mechanism of their own that they could use to kind of buffer the time between making hit titles because it's a very hit driven industry. Yeah. So I'm talking Nintendo, Sony with their PlayStation, Microsoft Xbox, valve has their steam store. And so as a technologist, I'm like, I probably can build some kind of distribution mechanism or something. And I had the notion that there might be an opportunity to build a group communications app for people who play games. And so the idea was build a team based multiplayer game that had voice chat and text chat kind of built into it. Kind of similar to how aurora faint was. Yeah, except it would have voice chat. Yeah. It'd be team based real-time gameplay. And then use the game to kind of bootstrap the communication network and then use that to launch additional titles and eventually build a distribution business for games. It sounds like the idea was to build like a media technology company where you would offer this service similar to aurora faint, but with audio chat component, but also to make games that were designed to be used with this social interactive platform. Yeah, that's right. But instead of like open faint where it was primarily a service that we sold to developers who then put it in their games for their users. This time, I was like, I want to go direct to consumers and have a direct relationship with the game players. And then eventually make it into its own app. So you were really thinking about building a social network. Yes. This is around 2012. And I think you originally called a company Phoenix guild and then in the change to hemorrhage chisel. And you raised a little bit a little over a $1 million in seed money to launch it. And when you pitched it to, I mean, I'm assuming at that time. You lots of people want to throw money. Throw money at you because you've taken a company from zero to a $100 million in two years. But when you explain what you were doing, how did you describe it? Did you describe it as we're going to make video games? Or did you describe it as we're going to create the social network or both? Yeah, I described it as we're going to build a new kind of gaming ecosystem on the next generation of computing devices. And it's going to be a combination of things. It's going to be games. It's going to be a communication service, and then it's going to be a distribution mechanism. How did you begin to recruit people to join you? Did you, how did you find people to put their people from open faint who came? Was it just a network of people you knew? Yeah. How did you start? Yeah, yeah. Together the team. I mean, the initial place that I started was I was like, I need an artist. I was like, I'm a software engineer who kind of understands product and game design. But I'm not an artist. So I need an artist to make any progress. And so I called up some of my friends from the games industry to see as anyone interested, where do people doing? And I started looking online to find great talent. And there was this website. I think it was called CG hub dot com. Like computer graphics sub dot com, where artists would put up their portfolios. So I just kind of started going down these portfolios and sending messages to people who looked like they had really awesome work. And then ultimately really hit it off with one guy who was just incredible. His name is Brandon. I actually flew to Texas to meet with him and he ended up being the first person to join the company. He's actually still with us today. He's pretty cool. Did you have an idea a specific idea of what the game would be or did you just go to him and say, I'm not really sure what it is, but I want to make a video game and I want to do it together. Kind of had a hunch of the space to explore, but I didn't have a specific idea. You know, I knew that I wanted to build a game that was real-time multiplayer that allowed you to spend time with your friends and have these really fun experiences to create memories together. And then it would also clamp the right kind of seeds to be able to build that communication service that we wanted to build on top of the game. Right. So how did you come up with it? The concept would eventually be called fates forever. This was the first game I think that you came up with. Yeah, fates forever is a three versus three real time multiplayer game. The genre is called massively online battle arena or moba. You're fighting other people. Yeah, yeah, it's kind of like playing soccer, but instead of a ball going into a goal, it's like dragons and fireballs and stuff. And the three of you are all kind of on the same team. Fighting, fighting them. Yeah, so yeah, it's like you and two other friends against three other people, but I have to give credit. We didn't invent this. This game was already really popularized on PC by something called League of Legends. And so yeah, we've done we talked to the founders of Riot Games on the show. Great, great. Yeah. An amazing story. But keep my hand, by the way, I know I sound like a complete Bozo when I'm asking these kinds of questions because people who play these games are like, are you kidding me? You don't know how this works and the answer is, no, I don't. Even though I've seen it, I see my kids play it. I'm like, okay, so there's three of you and you're fighting this guy and the fireballs coming at you, and there's a dragon there, and then there's this guy in your fight. And sometimes you kill each other. Yeah, kind of. Okay, keep going. Yeah, there's a lot to learn, but so that's what the game is. So we basically took one of the game modes from League of Legends and we said, how could we reimagine this for like a 12 inch piece of glass? Playing on a tablet. And so we came up with a new kind of touch mechanics. You could draw it, you could draw a squiggly line in the fire with follow the line that you drew. Oh, cool. So we had a lot of interesting interaction design that we did to try and really create a mobile native experience to offer something different. By the way, how long I read that it was an 8 person team that made this game, 'cause you had you raised some money. I think about two and a half $1 million to make this game, and then another 8 million or a little bit more after. But I mean, how long does it take for 8 people to make a game? I mean, I guess I guess the answer is a year and a half, right? But is it just like crazy intense schedule? Because it seems so complex and 8 people is not a lot of people. Yeah, it's complicated making games, but it's interesting because for the first 6 months of the company, we were kind of noodling around on different prototypes and different ideas. We had like a tower defense concept, a couple different kind of concepts. And then after about 6 months, we kind of had this interesting moment where I decided we should reinvent this moba concept on tablets because I believed that it was a really great game design and I thought.

"We had a phone in the kitchen with a very long court. And when a friend would call, I take the phone attached to that chord down the hall and into a closet where I could close the door for privacy. Every now and again, my mom or dad would pick up the phone in the middle of my conversation, and I would say mom, I'm on the phone. Now, right at the start of the pandemic, a version of this exact scenario played out, except this time, I was the one intruding on my child, and he wasn't even on the phone. He was at his desk on his computer playing Minecraft wearing a headset and Mike. I walked into his room, started asking him some questions when he looked at me in horror and said, dad, I'm talking to my Friends. And I could hear little voices coming out of his headset. Multiple voices, and he was talking back and talking to the other characters on the screen and on top of that, there was a window on the computer screen with a constantly updating text conversation. Oh, and music too, Spotify was playing in the background. Now, at the risk of sounding like a very old and out of touch tad, all of this was made possible by a social media platform that I'd heard of, but didn't know much about. Discord, and since its launch in 2015, it's become one of the biggest social media platforms in the world. Discord was built for gamers as a way to chat and send messages and talk while playing video games together. And like Zoom and slack, Discord grew at a massive rate during the pandemic because for millions of people, it was a way to socialize. And in our case, it kind of saved my kids during the almost two years of limited, in real life, social interaction. But what's most remarkable about Discord is that when it was launched in 2015, social media was dominated by Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and snap. And you'd have been kind of crazy to try and compete with those. But Jason citron, the founder and creator of Discord, wasn't competing at all. Instead, he entered that crowded social media space through a side door, a door that led to gamers. He built his platform for them, designed with their needs in mind. And in return, they not only adopted Discord, they told all their friends to do the same. Now, like many of the tech founders, we've had on this show, Jason citron got into computers at an early age, but unlike many of them, he didn't study math or engineering, and he didn't attend Stanford or MIT or Berkeley. In fact, Jason got a degree in video game design at a four private college in Orlando, Florida called full sail. And with that degree, he moved out west to design video games, but somewhere along the path to building games, he struck out. Twice as he will hear. He couldn't figure out how to make a game people wanted to use or pay for. But what he could figure out was how to create a way for gamers to communicate and he did that also twice. In the case of Discord, it now has more than a 150 million monthly users, and in 2021, it was widely reported that Microsoft offered Jason $10 billion for Discord, an offer, he turned down, but we'll get there. As I mentioned, Jason got into computers pretty early. Actually, to be more specific, he got into video games. And at age 13, his family moved from Long Island down to South Florida, and for his future career, that move. Proved to be faithful. Yeah, that's a funny story. I actually, so this was shortly after I moved to Florida. And this is one of those things where it's like, if my family hadn't moved to Florida, like maybe this would never have happened. And my whole life would have been different. But I ended up making a bunch of friends in 8th grade when I moved there. And had a slumber party for my 13th birthday. And everybody sort of fell asleep except for me and one other guy. And we were sitting around talking and he's like, I know how to make video games. And of course, I'm like, no, you don't. You're lying. You don't have any video games. And he says, no, no, I really know how to make video games. And so we installed this thing called Q basic on my computer, which was like a very basic kind of computer programming environment. And he starts typing in some commands on the computer. And he starts drawing these little circles on the screen. I mean, imagine like the lamest graphics you could possibly imagine, like a black screen with a little circle on it. And I just lost myself. I was like, this is amazing. Like, holy crap. You can actually make video games. And I just became obsessed with computer programming. What was the first thing that you were able to successfully program? I mean, I'm assuming it was pretty room entry. What do you remember about it? So in high school, I built a couple of video games, but I also made learn how to build my pages and I also, I think part of it, when you think about as a kid, like how you get validation for what you do and how that reinforces your behavior, I learned pretty quickly that I could make money from programming and from computers and IT and these things. So that was something my dad taught me early on was like, got to have a skill that you can use to make money. So that all kind of compounded. How did you eventually how are you making money in high school from some of the skills that you were learning? But big part of it was helping people around town learn to use computers. And then from the programming stuff, it was, you know, I would meet people on the Internet who were in these programming communities who were looking for people to help them build websites. And I was like, I can do that. And so I met a bunch of different people who contracted me to build a website for them. And actually, I remember the first time that I was trying to get paid, I went and talked to my parents and I was like, hey, hey mom and dad, I need to be able to accept a couple thousand bucks from someone on the Internet. Like, how do I do that? And they actually thought I was selling drugs or something, 'cause they were like, how are you getting paid? Online. I was like, no, no, and I showed them. I was like, no, look, this is all this computer programming stuff. I've been doing it. And they're like, oh, that's great. And so they helped me set up a PayPal account. And I guess when it came time for you to go to college, you stayed in Florida. You went to a place called full sale university. I guess it's based in Orlando and it's a for profit college. It's sort of like a trade school where a lot of people interested in video game design go. So you end up in a university that's not sort of the traditional kind of quote unquote prestigious place but more practical and it sounds like you were learning how to do what you wanted to do or wanted to learn. Yeah, that's exactly what happened. You know, I think higher education is kind of an interesting and interesting part of society because in reality, I'm now almost 20 years removed from all of this. And when I work with people, the school they went to, like, never comes up, right? It's like, what can you do? What do you know? But that was a thing. Certainly in Silicon Valley. Ten years ago. People were kind of snobby about, you know, they went to stand for a Caltech or Berkeley. I mean, I don't know. Maybe that was the case, but I think at some level, one of the great things about Silicon Valley, I think, at least from my point of view, is that it's kind of really just about what you can do and not really about where you're from. There tends to be some of this if you're from a poor prestigious school, maybe you have the network that helps you. At the end of the day, the beauty of Silicon Valley is that if you have a great idea and you can actually bring it to life, you can convince total strangers to give you money, join your project, and so this notion that you have to go to a great school, it didn't end up being a thing for me, you know, at least.

"So we've looked at an example couple examples where the blinders are on in. Both communities are all communities and were not drawing connections that we should be drawing and here. We have an example where the blinders are not on people. Are you know as this technology develops talking about the relationships between thanks to the two of you talking about the relationships between the national security problem and the personal security sexual privacy problem that suggests to me both in a positive negative sense that these communities actually have a very fruitful dialogue to have with one another and that there is that we think of them as the ven diagrams are very separate circles. But in fact there's a significant space of overlap. That is really really fruitful. When you spend time in it and so my question to you is what are the barriers to that you know. They're they're very different communities. They don't they don't live with one another they don't talk to one another very much and so on just interested in your thoughts. What would a what would a dialogue in a in a sustained serious way between the sort of feminist privacy law types and national security concerns. Look like and what. What are the big impediments to it. So it strikes me that this room is precisely to the answer to that question at the net. Set girls community is is precisely the community. That's going to help bridge those conversations that so often not see a problem is because we don't know who suffering from it and it's not highlighted. It's not before our eyes and so this community and an and the work at l'affaire and some of the work that you know we'll do together is going to be part of that and facilitating conversation. Because i think there's no doubt in my mind that they've been some hamam moments that mo- longer can we say they're separated. They're not just aggregated. They're part of the same story. So i actually think we're part of an early conversation. That's going to keep growing the more. Unfortunately we see some of these tactics that are used against more vulnerable people are going to be used fruitfully by state actors. So i guess what are they saying. We're ground zero in that important work of that conversation that i think will only build. And you're right it like. I don't normally sit down with generals right or god. Bless love adam chef but or or but you know i found myself having conversations with them right at the committee hearing and then staffers. So hopefully we just all join that conversation and bring those stories to folks either as policy makers you know in the legislature executive branch through litigation in the courts. We're going to have to bring them to the table. Let's take some audience questions. had it guys Good afternoon. I think it's afternoon My question is actually about an intersection of this. That i think we kind of brush past a little bit and it's the old notion of like the honeypot right. So as more women are entering the national security field they are going to become vulnerable to opposing seat actors threatening and discrediting them and back in the day. They used to do this by tricking cia agent or whatever into a compromising situation with a person who was an agent posing as a sexy lady. But now you don't even have to be in the same room to take that picture because all you need to do as hack the cloud or you have to find their ex boyfriend who hates their guts and even just a photo and make a deep fake sex or that. I mean but the reality is that the ability to take images has become so much more easy and more young women are entering this workforce that becomes a vulnerability for us and i just went to a presentation on an sf. Eighty six. And i can't imagine having to go in to my employer. Say i have taken a nude photo of myself in the past and disclose that as vulnerability in the same way that once you may have been expected. Disclose something else like a financial vulnerability because that is a vulnerability for young women. Is this image of me is out there somewhere. And maybe it's an ex boyfriend or maybe it's a hacker museums. Just the club So first of all. I you know it is not just a vulnerability for young women and so vulnerability for young men as well and in fact there is a One of the weirder corners of the world of extortion is kind of industrial effort to sex store military age men and there has been actually had to be guidance on it from from some of the services because enough people were being caught up in these schemes and the scheme is pretty simple. You're beautiful woman. Friends you on facebook and you get to chatting and your nineteen year old. Enlisted guy right and She sends you a nude picture and asks for one and you send her one and then it turns out that the beautiful young woman is actually a call center in the philippines. That wants ten thousand dollars and you know these are. This is a pretty standard scam now. And it's catching a lot of people so your point is exactly right. But it's it's all the issue is not just a you. Know a security clearance. What could be stolen from you. It's also a real time thing. Do you have further thoughts on this. Danielle and i guess what i was thinking is that it's gonna sort of force a conversation about kind of how we grapple with us which one antics just a conversation.

"Cause it's nuts right now. The Wall Street Journal says long held strategies such as evaluating company fundamentals have gone out the window in favor of momentum. War has broken out between professional professionals losing billions and individual investors jeering at them on social media. Meanwhile, the frenzy of activity is during regulatory and legal concerns, as well as the attention of the Biden administration. Newbie investors are gathering on platforms like Reddit discord, Facebook and Twitter. They're encouraging each other to pile into stocks bragging about their gains in the times intentionally banding together to intensify losses among professional traders who protest that social media hordes are conspiring to move stock prices. I didn't realize is this colt likes in short seller Andrew left of Citron Research who's become a particular target? Some investors on social media is just to get rich, quick scheme. Him Stop AMC BlackBerry have received hundreds of thousands of mentions across social media since early January have vaulted into the ranks of the most traded stocks in the U. S market. The mammoth gains have forced money managers to dump that's that stocks would fall magnifying the rally. So that means that they have to buy the stock in order to pay pay back the the short selling they were doing. Bearish. Investors who took short positions have lost $23.6 billion this year through the close of trading Wednesday and Gamestop alone, according to S three partners, including $14.3 billion on Wednesday, when the stock price jumped 135% those largest percentage increase in history to a record $347.51. On Wednesday, Gamestop shares had a high of $380.380 bucks, briefly giving the video game retailer a market value of 26. 0.5 billion more than that of Delta. S o. All of this is absurd. Right on its face. It's absurd. The question is whether this is you know the people who are striking back at the bad guys or whether they're actually just sort of gaming, the market for fun and giggles and to make a little bit of extra money. So the line that I've seen is there just going with the hedge fund guys were doing Well, first of all, if the hedge fund guys banded together to pump it up a sock Kind of illegal, so not quite the same. Now that's one guy's got together and they're like, you know what? We're just gonna tell all our investors that the stock isn't worth what we think what we're about to do. We're just gonna make a gamble that we can create a momentum play. I'm gonna be perfectly obvious about that. That's not illegal. Everybody is. Caveat emptor Buyer Beware. Hey, but the sort of enthusiasm that we're seeing for this I think a lot of this is just a certain class based enthusiasm, which is the hedge fund. Guys are jerks. And I know that hedge fund guys, some guys are real jerks. Some guys are not just like every other industry. But again, there's a lot of enthusiasm for what's going on right now, because it's sort of like the little guy is screwing the big guy. Well, some of those guys are little guys. Some of these guys are in fact, not little guys, and this is worth pointing out. The reality is that, according to Bloomberg, they're a bunch of institutional investors who are making bank off this sort of thing. It is not just little guys were making money off of this. Right. One. Jen Lin is up $773 million. That guy's an institutional investor as AMC entertainment spikes. Soaring shares of $185 million worth to the CEO of Tootsie Rolls fortune. The people have been buying up the stock of Tootsie Roll. So it is not merely be the little guy who's making a bunch of money. And by the way, it's gonna be a little that you get screwed. Yes, they're a bunch of hedge fund billionaires. We're gonna get screwed and Okay, right. They took a risk, and then they got jacked by a bunch of people who are basically pranking them for money. But That's you know, risk risk. Reward calculations don't always go right. It's not illegal. What these but these folks were doing and it can be kind of funny. With that said that people were gonna get left holding the bag in the main are going to be unsophisticated, non institutional investors who end up holding the stock too long and then ending up Eating. The loss is basically what's going on. Not happening here. It won the founder of closely held conglomerate, a daily and Wanda Group. No one's a steak. What about $1 Billion in AMC, which plans almost 20 bucks in Europe trading the most since October of 2018? So there A lot of people who are big players were making a lot of money off of this. Okay. But again, the underlying idea here is that the stock market is kind of bad. Or the hedge fund. Guys are doing something deeply moral in the short sale. Don't buy either of those things. I think there are people who do immoral things in every market. I think that is true in virtually every market, but it is worth noting Hedge fund guys are generally competing against one another. If they think that somebody is undervaluing the stock, then they will go after those people. These folks are sharks. The hedge fund guys are sharks.

I'm screwing up his name from off Polly, happy to Is the social capital CEO, and he was going off on CNBC saying that you know anybody who's upset about this in the Wall Street world is basically just crapping on the little guy. No, I think what the little guy is doing here is perfectly legal. I don't think that it is particularly good for the broader social implications of the market, right. It just reinforces the idea that America is a casino, which the market Is not and should not be. But here he is defending what is going on with game stop right now. I'm not saying they shouldn't be able to pay you. One thing you want to say, you're saying they should participate on your term? No on Wall Street term, know in a way where they get when, When Wall Street can have the best of it. They can maybe participate on the side. But then, when Wall Street gets the worst of it, they their parents, their relative will just come and bail him out. So if you want to fix it I think you gotta go and ask for the same transparency because you can't all of a sudden have your cake and eat it, too. Let's have hedge funds operate in the shadows. But let's then basically land vast Wall Street back because they actually have the courage to write their stuff down publicly where anybody could see it. Okay, so his call is for the hedge fund guys to be transparent about why they're investing the way they're investing. And honestly, I don't think that's a bad idea. I think that's totally fine. But I will note that typically, the market is not. I mean, this is a perfect example of the stock just beating wildly overpriced and they're now doing it Stock by stock. They're just going to every every stock that is being short sold because the stocks are overvalued, cause the companies are not doing well. They're now pumping those up and then dumping them. I mean that Z essentially what they're doing more on that in a moment, But first, if you thought the lead up to 2016 was nuts, you ain't seen nothing. Yet. The best.

"$11 billion blow his traders using APS like Robin Hood Market Symphony. ET trade rallied behind the video game retailer after brokerages said there were these training restrictions. That's a Bloomberg business Flash. I'm Greg Jared. You're listening to Bloomberg markets with body Quinn and Paul Sweeney on Bloomberg Radio. Sarah Pontiac is in studio Cross our border here at Bloomberg and Sarah just you know, we could begin anywhere, but I kind of like this headline. RM Live blogging has more juice to be squeezed in the land of the shorts. It's a very intriguing headline. Are there still shorts out there? And are they hiding right now? Yes, there are still shorts out there and you could just see that if you look at Short interest as a percent of shares outstanding or as a percentage of float on many of these stocks, and you see some of this juice if we want to call it being squeezed this morning. Gamestop, for example. Currently up. 59% cost the headphone maker up 48% AMC up 46% as we speak right now. So after we did see the selloff yesterday, brokerages placing restrictions Now there has been an easing of those restrictions. At the same time. You have the likes of Citron research coming out and saying that they're going to stop their short selling research and we see A comeback in the making for many of these socks. So Sarah and we see the markets trading off today. Um, do we have evidence that part of this market movement day today here this week has been in fact influenced by Somebody's hedge funds, looking to liquidate some of the bigger positions across the market to stave off some losses on these shorts. Is there evidence to that effect? So that that is the understanding right now? As a loose proxy If you look at an e t f that trades under the ticker G V, I P. You can see that over the 123456 of the seven last days. Have been lower Wednesday, a drop of 4.3% Today We also see it down 8/10 of a percent. My colleague gluing has actually written a lot about this, too. And she's got in data from Goldman Sachs Prime brokerage unit on what it shows is that outflows from hedge funds and D grossing has actually been happening at the fastest rate since October of 2014. So there is some evidence that shows that hedge funds have had to de risk and you can see it in certain pockets of the market, particularly like this ET F, which tracks favorite hedge fund long positions. Not only have they been attacked on the short end of the book, they're having a hard time on the long end of the book, too. They're explained to us a little bit more about the Citron research decision. I presume they're still going to short stocks. They're just not going to publish their research is that is it had been open before And then, as part of that question does that leave us open to fraud like, for example, and Ron and all of these other major fraudulent Instances that we may not have found out about if there hadn't been short sellers. So what? What Citron said in their announcement was that they will focus on giving long side multi bagger opportunities for individual investors. Ciao. I'm sure we'll get more information. My understanding is that yes, they're just not going toe publish the research. But then again, we're still this is still developing. I'm sure we'll get more information. But that's the issue right now. Why would any short seller want to be an activist short that publishes? They're short list. If they know that a reddit community with now six million users is just going to gather to try to create a short squeeze on hurt their position. We know that the likes of Citron, other hedge funds that had short positions on some of these stocks have suffered billions of dollars worth of losses this week. And you see that culminating and Citron's decision today holding 20 years. Of their short selling analysis, so unsure what this truly means and also going forwards. We know this is now being looked at very closely, not just on Wall Street, not just on Reddit, but in Washington, D. C and the SEC is looking into this as well. So the question really is, is there going to be new regulation? It comes out from this saga and two. If so, Where is it going to focus? What are the changes that can actually be made? And you wonder if any of that will fit on the short seller side of the equation? Because pull I mean, the likes of Jim Chanos has done a lot of good for the market over the years. It would be an awful pity to see people like that. Just go into into the corner and hide. I agree. I think it's revived It kind of this discussion we've had from periodically over the years. You know, for a long time about the value of short selling. Is it a valuable, you know? Is it a valuable practice in the marketplace? And while a lot of people think no, there's a lot of people says, just like you're saying, Bonnie that it does, it does do a lot for market integrity. Sir. One of the issues I was looking at was so many things cos they're seeing their stocks, you know, rally so much Are any of these companies coming to market trying tow, sell stock and take advantage of this? They certainly are. There's a story on the terminal right now. The headline read It favorites I stock sales. After retail fueled rallies and I mean you can't really blame some of these companies for doing so they're taking advantage of market like they're taking advantage of capital markets. American Airlines, for example, announced plans to sell up to $1.1 billion A shares. We've also seen Sunday. I'll growers, which has been another one of these favorites lately, That's been a part of the mania, which is a pot stock. They announced $100 million stock sale at a discount to yesterday's closing price. So certainly companies are taking advantage of this has happened earlier in the week as well. With a M C. Taking advantage of the pop in their share prices. They raised $305 million You can't really blame these companies for doing so they're taking advantage of an opportunity. Yeah, that's for sure. Is Sarah Thank you so much for joining us that we have to talk to you next week as well about various other things, including the dollar and the vics. Which actually, I have other parts of the market. Bonnie, we have besides cape Stop. We have to focus on other parts of the market across asset. Exactly. Did you see the vics? Upton 29 today? Well, Yeah, Exactly. And then you know, Tom keen really tracks the vics very closely. These pointed pointed that out this morning and but it just goes to show that you know again the volatility then certainly in the market, Bonnie Yeah, For sure. Sarah Ponzi crosses their border at Bloomberg News. Thank you so much. I do want to point out that the 10 year yield is absolutely just flown up there as well. We're back at one away 08. We were below one yesterday..

This might be the first episode dedicated to a lady. which is a bit embarrassing. I would say so yeah. But no better woman to start off this trend with and Michelle. She is easily one of the best rally drivers ever. She's a beast. So I'm really stoked that we can tell the story even if it took us a little while to get to it, that's on us but but it's interesting because motorsport is really one of the sports where women and men compete against each other as true like she's not the best. Female driver ever. She's one of the best rally drivers at. Yeah. Regardless of gender she's one of the greatest. and honestly like just watching a video of her rally driving makes me sweat. Over, yeah she's like she's the person who when we talk about. Like rally cars now are all-wheel-drive. Wheel drive. But when Audi showed up with quattro and just started smoking everybody that was Michelle. Meantime that was young Mouton Bay. mouton on the track. Yeah I mean. To your point James like drag racing of course is or was kind of dominated by women at one point all the force sisters were just tearing it up. There's really no reason. For it to be separated by gender in in Motor Sport Really of course right now there's the there's the W. series, which is a like a women's open-wheel series. At I think that's more for them to kind of get exposure and it proved themselves in like a formula car but I'm looking forward to seeing some of those drivers come up in the formula. One. Soon hopefully, it would just make it more interesting for crying out loud if nothing else I agree let's get into it a. all right. Let's fired up.

Why Twitter Stock Was Slammed Thursday
"Rough week for Twitter. Shares fell twenty five percent after Citron research put out a report calling Twitter, the Harvey Weinstein of social media. Matt Twitter can be a rough place, and especially a rough place for women even for Citron. This seems. Untored? Yeah. It does. And it's shame that something like Citron still has as much influence as they do in the stock market. But you know, we all use Twitter. Chris United we use it pretty extensively the some of the behavior on the platform. Let's say his, you know, not not not all that. Great. And I think the what's Citron was reacting to was Amnesty International study that just showed, you know, how difficult it is really especially to be a woman on the platform, especially if you're a woman in the media, and kind of all the, you know, for lack of a better word hate that you kind of get it on the platform, and it it's troubling, and it should be taken seriously. But I think Jack Dorsey team working hard to curb as much as possible. But there's always a fine line that right? It's your wanna threatened free speech. And you don't want to hurt the anonymity platform, which I think makes it appealing to a lot of users on Twitter, and you know, at the end of the day, I think this is true for all these platforms advertisers, follow audience. I don't know who I said that. But it's true. And I think if you look at Twitter with over three hundred. Active users. I don't think advertisers are going to step away from that. I mean, I think even even today advertisers are looking for platforms outside of Google and Facebook and Twitter and appealing one to look at. So I think the studies troubling I don't think it's going to have much impact on Twitter's business the near term well, and for those unfamiliar with Citron him in this all of the big Wall Street firms. They've got their reports that they put out their upgrades and downgrades. It seems like if Citron is in the news. It's because they basically put out a short report. Oh, that's right. And they're they're most certainly I don't know if they disclosed it, but they're most certainly short Twitter before they've issued this report that's just how they roll. So, you know, take that for what it's worth
Nvidia shares turn positive after Citron buys stock
"Of conviction because if one short seller. Yes, I'll be at who has had a pretty good track record if one short seller. Recommends buying this? They've that sends a sock surging that much.

Also, Salesforce dot com up one and a quarter percent joining Invidia, which as you said up a four and a half percent. Although if you take a look at the rest of the market for example, apple shares down three and a half percent. Now, really interesting to see sort of the volatility and to Dave's point earlier. Dave Wilson Oliver sacks editor and columnist. He was talking about how volumes have actually been very high today. So this is not coming on just volumes. Correct.

Tesla to report earnings Wednesday
"Tesla. The automaker roaring back to life soaring, thirteen percent today. Phillip does breaking down tassels bake move from Chicago. Hey, Phil, hey, Melissa tesla usually reports. It's currently quarterly earnings on the first of the month, the second month after the quarter. And so we were not expecting this until perhaps November first. And then tesla said, wait a second. We're gonna report on Wednesday that immediately got people thinking including Adam Jones Morgan Stanley, we'll listen. Maybe they've got some positive news. That's why they moved up the timing of the report. It's possible. They could report a slight profit for the third quarter, which is what many people have been talking about for some time. And we know that the model three certainly helped the performance in the third quarter. And then there was this note from Andrew left at Citron research. Andrew basically, saying plain and simple tesla is destroying the competition. Remember, Andrew left has long, been a short seller on tesla share. Airs and has long said stay away from the stock. Why does he think they're destroying the competition? While there are a number of reports, clean technique being one of them saying, look at the model, three sales as well as my lesson model x. in the United States by their calculation, they are by far the best selling EV's in the US we should point out. Tesla does not break out at sales by country, so there's no way to confirm these numbers. But this is one reason why Andrew left says, we think that this is going to be a great third quarter for tesla and that they are
Volkswagen anticipates a diesel renaissance
"We've had a just over a week to digest the whole Geneva. Auto show an extremely large amount of electric and future news for cars coming out of Geneva let's. Start off with the announcement by VW that they think that diesel will. Be coming. Back strangely, this is, coming from VW who got wacked really hard for their diesel that's right so Volkswagen of course has been spending the better part of the last two and a half years playing defense. And promising to launch several dozens of new all electric cars over the next handful of years it's brand CEO did an interview in which he basically, said that when you scrape obey the weight of vanities of kind of the electric car fashion he does think that. There is still a place. For diesel diesel Will undergo is said a little. Bit of, a renaissance in just a few short years, time so. One kind of wondrous here and certainly. Can't be faulted for being more than a little bit confused as to what they really believe because there are certainly plowing literally tens of billions of euros several. Tens of billions of euros into a future electric car world while at the same time basically doubting. What the consumer is automatically going to buy so does this mean that. They are. Working on, replacement diesel, engines that they pulled from the market after the scandal well a Volkswagen is one of the companies that never said that they were going to stop developing diesels they of course stopped. Selling them specifically in the US market and in the u. s. market alone but not in other geographies so from that standpoint I have kind of, kept their cards close to the vest I mean I see them Continuing to develop diesel engines the problem that they are facing in part. Is that this sales of diesel engine in Europe has gone down over the last sort of eighteen months it used to be sort of. Fifty two to fifty four percent of their sales mix and, now it's down by about ten percentage points to, something closer to. Forty two to forty four percent of their sales makes in Europe and that's a. Problem but again forty four forty percent give or take it's still a very very large number and if the consumer? Continues, to want to buy diesels from them they will continue to not just sell them but develop
