"We're gonna depart from our normal routine now because as many of you know I've been covering the aviation business and the aviation industry in terms of safety for more than 40 years on, and this goes back to my days of Newsweek. And we have a number of anniversary's coming up. Most of these anniversaries are really interesting lessons in how we learn our lessons first, and then how we apply them. And I'm joined today by someone I've known for quite some time. We met through unusual circumstances, which which, I think is not surprising. Most airline accidents are unusual circumstances. That's a good thing. When they do happen. We need to find out why That's where the National Transportation Safety Board comes in. And then once they investigate, that's when the real work starts the real work starts and trying to figure out the probable cause. And then the real challenge, which has been in existence since the FAA has been in existence, and that is once you know the problem. And then once you know the solution, and that solution could be implemented, what stops you from implementing That's the solution and what agency interests are there in terms of the definition of what the FDA is supposed to do? They are regulatory agency. The NTSB, by the way is not and they're supposed to basically enforce and enact safety. My guests. Pilot, uh, hero and safety advocate Jeff Skiles II. Jeff. Thanks for joining me. Little Peter's nice to be with you now, just for putting this in some perspective. You and I first met because of the miracle on the Hudson, the U. S Air flight that made that amazing ditching in the Hudson in January of Of 09. And, uh, Of course, the pilot was Captain Sully Sullenberger. You with the co pilot? That story doesn't need to be, uh, told anymore. We know it. It's an amazing story. An amazing story of Everybody combining all the gods, the planets, the expertise in the cockpit, the people on the on the ground in the water, the the fast rescue operation. All of those things, combining Tomo to tell an amazing story. But you and I also met because of something else. And that was ah, flight that you had nothing to do with. In fact, it was a different airline. It was a continental Continental connection flight part of Continental Airlines flight 34 07. From Newark to Buffalo, and that in in 2000 and nine was was another story altogether that nobody survived That. And and that was an amazing story because when the NTSB got involved and started looking at all the possible reasons why that crash happened. The story then became quite interesting in it. Yeah, very much. So I think that the way our incident was viewed was as what happens when everything can go. Right. And certainly that incident reflected, uh, Tragedy when everything could go wrong. And the question is, what do you do about it? And that's uh what I think is always question. It's based after accidents like this on this case, the families of the victims of that accident were very forward thinking and wanted to make sure that the loss of their loved ones meant something. Am that there would be positive change due to the due to what was reflected in the investigation. Well, let's go back for second Jeff and set the scene. The plane left Newark in the early evening hours. Heading for Buffalo. About what about a 48 minute flight. Normally, if not less, it was. It was called Continental connection and let me just paint the picture for you. For those of you listening, Uh, the paint on that plane was continental logo. Uh, the in Flight magazine was a Continental Airlines flight magazine. The people who held tickets on that plane. It, said Continental Airlines If they were members of their frequent flyer program, they got continental frequent flyer miles. And yet it wasn't operated by Continental was operated by then. Colgan air. And there in lies an interesting story about airline regulations, term safety airline requirements in terms of of skills needed by the cockpit crew and training needed by the cockpit crew and number of hours needed in the left seat as well as the right seat. And there in lies. The real problem, isn't it? Yeah, very much. So all of those things are are at issue in this incident because a regional carrier eyes operating on a threadbare financial situation. They bid for the rounds, and the lowest bidder gets here. We'll from the major airlines and as you stated you as the customer have no idea what you're flying on. That's one of the two of them several things that have changed because of this incident. Now, when you book the flight, it has to say that it's on our regional carrier. In this case, it was Continental connection. As you say it's only when it crashes and kills people that it became Colgan air. And going back to this, you know, because it was a commuter carrier. They were operating on sort of more flexible, less rigid restrictions, even though they were commercial carrier. Then they would have been had they been a Continental Airlines mainline service and there in lies one of the bigger problems I remember reading with some horror when we started to dissect. All the elements that went into this accident that the pilot of the plane Not only was not properly trained in certain areas he had failed some tests and was still allowed to fly. The copilot. Ah, young woman who lived in the state of Washington was being paid the salary of a WalMart greeter. May I think maybe $17,000 a year if I remember and And it was such a low salary that she couldn't afford to live in the base where she was assigned, which was Newark. So she was commuting from the state of Washington to Newark and because of the timing of the flight, and because she didn't have enough money to live anywhere. She was living at home with her mom when she came in for that flight shoes, literally deadheading in the cockpit of a FedEx plane landing and then with no rest going to take that flight. Yeah, that that that's that's all true, and in fact to the families of the victims of the accident, consider the pilots to be victims of the accident as well. Which you might think is unusual, but they realize that they were victims of the system. System that didn't allow them into the differences. Make enough money to afford to live where they had to be based on a system that that didn't allow them to have the training that was necessary. And unfortunately in the case of the captain, as you said he did. He did fail several check rides in the past. On. That was something that at that time wasn't invisible because there was no requirement of an airline to check into the past of the employees of the higher on frankly, no ability for them to compel former employers to tell them the decision, the troubles that they may have had Now. This incident happened on February 12 2009, and during the flight. It was a cold night ice accumulated on both the windshield and the wings at about the time around 10 o'clock at night. That plane started its descent into Buffalo, and here's where training comes into play. Because the one thing you don't ever want to have happen and pilots. You know what I'm talking about, will understand this. You don't want the stick Shaker to start shaking the stick Shaker is the indication in the cockpit. That you're about to go into a stall because you're flying too slow, And that's exactly what started happening..

"Michael, I was just wondering listener than a caller on the airline and changes you see about overbooking going away. So where are you at a business model standpoint for the airline. If those seats are, um You miss your flight? Are they allowed to charge or half prize or something like that? Just want to get your thoughts on that. You mean if you missed if you paid for your flight, and then you miss it. Yeah. You book it. You didn't make your flight. They keep your money didn't return half. Yes, that's what's so interesting. I don't know of any other industry where Where this happens If you think about it, imagine, Imagine if you made reservations for restaurant 7 30. You got to the restaurant. And you, you get there at seven twenties, It was 7 30 restaurant table for four. And they say, Oh, We went ahead and booked that table. But I worked it. I know when I hadn't booked the table and we went ahead and short. We went ahead in charge your credit card Anyway, In case you didn't show up, we still charge you, But since you're here, most unfortunate, So how about, um, we give you a piece of pie or something when you go away? On. Then you wait around until the 10 o'clock. We'll turn the tables one time. And you wouldn't tolerate that if you showed up at a concert, and there's somebody sitting in your seat. You go over to the usher and you say Excuse me, sir, I I've got you know, Roasty c five and they always we sold that again after you bought it with charged both of y'all. Has a lot of people just don't show up to the concert, and this way we get to sell 110% of our seats. You wouldn't tolerate that There'd be a riot. So the idea that that airlines have gotten away with this for for this long? I'm I'm I'm delighted that this happened because it exposed what I consider to be. Awful practice. And if consumers tolerate this nonsense, then that's exactly what they'll get. Sure. Yeah, I just didn't know if it would evolve the changes like you said. Would include something like that similar to hotels. Look, we are going to reserve this, but if you don't call within this time, we are gonna have to charge you something. But they do charge you You've already bought the ticket. It's cleared. You know when we when we sell a ticket to a to a show We don't get paid on that show until after the show. The ticket company holds the money, but they hold on to it to make sure that we perform because they're also tied into this process as well. The airline company when you pay for your ticket ahead of time. You got a $500 ticket. You pay your 500 our ticket three months before they carry the float For those three months. They've got that $500 for those three months and they go in and go. All right, Let's see how many of these can we overbook? I mean, None of this. Those people I had a friend that was an analyst for Continental Airlines. And what they did is they sat. It zah pricing mechanism and a time mechanism and they run algorithms. And they studied data. This is a very highly scientific process to look at. All right, if our Christmas fairs what When are we going to put him on sale? How are we going to sell out a certain amount? How many do we hold back because we're going to get three times as much for the ticket. You know, on the day of because we don't want to lose revenues, but we want to have tickets for those last minute people that we gouge, so they've been doing this for a very long time. And people hate airlines. But they tolerated they tolerated because there hasn't been enough separation in the airlines. I'm surprised because because Southwest is so much better at customer service. Then united. I'm frankly shocked.

"And he realizes this place is about as boring as you, Khun get it had these really safe kind of big brands that never took any chances. Robin Hood Flower, Alka Seltzer. The grand Old Opry advertising period. The time was that to sell products, it had to be really sort of generic. Nothing too spicy. You don't want to offend anybody. One size fits all targeted at everyone who owned a television set with after self. Really away. It probably goes without saying that you could watch Alka Seltzer ads all day long in the 19 sixties. And never see a non white face. Barrel really liked the agency. He was really happy just to be in advertising. The people were good to him. They treated him well, and there weren't a ton of those awkward moments that you might expect from being the only black guy in the agency. Except for one, you know, it was a Christmas party. It's always the Christmas party. Robert. This is when the CFO of the company walks up to him and says, Tom, you know we're happy you're here. And we're wondering if next year You would be willing are interested. And singing some down home songs. So what were you thinking when he said that? What did you think? I think I did the same thing. I just I think I left. Who's Who's all talk and hey, never get it for the record. He never saying at the office Christmas party, and he didn't really stay in the mailroom that long. He started writing copy coming up with folksy language to sell flower. He even made a big pitch for the agency's big account. Alka Seltzer. He had a really edgy idea that involved the sick monkey and Alka Seltzer. It was weird. It was crazy. But it never got made. After just a few years, Tom barrels ambition was too big for Wade advertising. He found another agency willing to let him do edge your stuff. Needham Harper and steers. And they didn't have to fly the CEO in from Florida to approve his hire. Tom was the first black copy supervisor we had ever had in the agency and well, he's very tall. He's a Good looking. He has a good voice, and he was very gifted the creative guy, so we were. We were drawn to him. Keith Reinhardt was copyrighted there in the sixties. And I'm sure you know his work like a good neighbor. State farm is there and we got lots of letters from English teachers whom Objected to our use of Like a good neighbor instead of as a good neighbor, But it stayed with us, and they're still using it. Today, This agency would go on to be one of those big historic innovators in advertising, and Keith Reinhard says that Tom Barrel was one of the best copywriters they had. And in a weird way, the advertising agencies work. These two were both colleagues. But they were also competitors. The two men were often pitted against each other to see who could come up with the best ideas. One incident. I remember when we were both given the assignment to Ah, Convince people Tio Tri Continental Airlines because they had wider seats, new wider suits and we tried to crack it and Tom and his group just nailed it. I think it was Tom himself. Who came up with this idea to reprint the seat cushions. Of these new, wider seats on Continental Airlines and a double page newspaper spread on the headline simply invited readers to sit down on the newspaper spread and see. How much wider it was, How much more comfortable? I mean, he really killed it. Remember, Robert, we're talking about the 19 sixties and Chicago so civil rights movement is going on in Chicago. There's sort of a Harlem Renaissance. You got Ebony magazine, which is a really, really important media outlet for African Americans, definitely at the time, and their ad reps are going around, saying this is a black magazine. The ads have tohave black people in them, and that woke up a lot of people in the advertising world. The consumer market world in Chicago. So what they would do is they would write a script for a TV ad say, build a set. And first of all, you would hire white actors like in this ad for Crest there, these two white kids brushing their teeth at a sink. I never be bred Taste test. Greg Side used the same to save his mind without flushed my side used crest. I had 42% fear can so they would fill the ad with white actors and then at the end of the day, swap out the cute white kids for equally cute black kids and have them pretty much do the same ad. I never could talk, Jeff. Then, in a two faced test, we're on opposite sides. Whiteside use crest. His side was the same two faithful without floors stand, and that's when I'd be Jeff because my side had 21% fewer cavities. With Crist, Brill says. It was pretty comical. How little they thought about black consumers. In these days. He told me this one famous story of a state farm ad. That they wanted to change for Ebony magazine. Now the original ad had a white couple lain in bed. There was a photograph on the side of the bed. And this is a family photograph. And so then they did a black version of that same ad, but they forget to change the photograph. So you get this place. It gets his white family with the photograph the white family on the side. And so that was one example. Another example was Schaeffer's beer. Caper.

"So they went from selling a few thousand albums a week to selling fifty to sixty thousand a week niece before they knew it in sync blew up now. The cat was out of the bag. Backstreet boys were understandably angry at Lou for hiding a rival boy band and John of them especially because it was their own manager that created their own competition. Oh I would have lost lid Lou himself that rivalry between backstreet boys and in sync. He kept the two groups away from each other feeding each of them. Bullshit about the other. Yeah so that the rivalry would seem legit like he would go to the backstreet boys and Talk Shit about insane and then go to talk shit about backstreet boys. Oh cult leader tactics exactly. And wasn't he telling back she was? Oh I made this on purpose to make you more popular or something. I feel like probably I wouldn't doubt it like Oh because we are. We going to hide that but like Oh. I made a rival band to make you more popular. Yes everyone's going to want to stick by you because he's accurate I exactly and then he probably goes dancing. I made you because the backstreet boys aren't aren't reliable and Blah Blah Blah right and it worked and it helped them get even more fans and it helped establish fans double down on their deep and bottomless love for their favorite group. In that deep love equaled more money but loop proved himself right. He took that new kids model and twice now made successful boy bands. Money was rolling in and he was only paying these guys that notorious per diem money which is gross garbage we learned this on our TLC episode hernia. Money is bullshit money. Sign up for fucking per diem. Yeah in synchrony paid thirty five dollars a day. At first they thought that was really great especially because all their hotels and plane rides and buses were paid for by Lou they were a part of lose lavish super expend e-lifestyle. So they weren't really going to complain much but at the same time they couldn't afford their rent or to buy a car for themselves but also in terms of like cult status not bad.

What it was on top of that he was showering. These kids with gifts rides and fancy cars meals at fancy restaurants and also doing the same for their parents. Oh this reminds me of Neverland ranch and what Michael Jackson would do. Fire Him getting some severe leaving. Neverland fives from the shit. Yes 'cause at any time you go to Luke Herman's mansion and just find a ton of young boys just running around on like motorcycles. Bmx bikes in like playing on a ferris wheel or some shit. I don't know like his teenage boys are like cool this fine. Yeah in funny was love right exactly. We need to do better for men for boys. We need to try. Teach boys that like that. All of this is bullshit in like to be emotional to have feelings and like physical and material. Things aren't what's going on and like I think there's two things that taught. I think that we teach boys that this is like how you show love. And it's not yeah. I think that there's two things that we really need to teach boys at a very young age. It's one fucking respect women. Yeah and to open your eyes to shit like this because it's not just because it's another male doesn't mean that it's okay right and like yeah three have emotions. It's fine. Yeah Yeah and like you're all you're all right to trust your gut and I don't know there's a lot of things we did wrong guys. Slow things we've done wrong well us you don't you guys. Were looking at children. Yes but the question is where was Lou getting all of this money? Where was Lou getting all this money? How could he afford expensive? Dinners a multimillion dollar mansion. In a parking lot full of Rolls Royce's we'll have to file mobiles pedophile on wheels. Well in the midst of all this boy ban creation Lou had started in airline company called Trans Continental Airlines in tandem with another company called Trans Continental Airlines Travel Services Inc. Can he please fucking come up with something more creative? No God damn it. All of his creative juices or going into in sync and backstreet boys on he shot these companies out to investors. And I'm not talking big names here. These investors were not the bill gates's or the Jimmy Buffett's of the nineteen nineties. I'm talking about everyday Joe's mostly in their seventies and eighties. That have a decent chunk of money to invest so that they could make money for their retirement or for their families. Yeah he scamming old people..

"Thinking about my career, and what that helps orient me with early on is that investing is really an apprenticeship business. There's just no doubt about that. In my mind. Of course, there are outliers where we can observe people at a very young age. Succeeding in our business. But for the most part, I think this is a business where you just have to be around for a while you have to see different situations. See different markets break, some eggs make mistakes. And so I've always tried to keep that long view in mind. And you know, when I think about some of the more formative experiences, let me share a couple anecdotes with you. So in ninety eight I'm in my second year is a high yield analyst and Asia currency crisis starts happening, and they get us all into a room. And it's somber it's we're gonna get through this. There's like godfather metaphors, we're going to the mattresses the world will survive, and I'm looking at this. And I'm saying if I recall SNP's off, maybe fifteen percent peak Detrow. It feels bad. But kinda it's in a different part of the world. But I'm looking around the room at these senior bankers, and I realize oh my God. This is the worst thing they've ever seen in their career. And it just wasn't that bad candidly, and that really resonated with me because we live in a risky world things happen. And you've just gotta see different experiences as much as you can Jim Coulter who's the co founder of ju- when I started there. He took me aside. And he said, you know, a big part of the reason that I can do what I do. Now, very effectively because when I was your age, I spent all those nights in a cubicle modeling, Continental Airlines and deepen the spreadsheets and developing the skills and that also resonated, so I feel just stupidly lucky because think about for second. So I came into the capital markets in ninety seven I was paying attention to the markets all through college. So from then through today think about it Asia currency, Russia currency, long-term capital, telco, boom, which is distinct from dot com. Boom nine eleven housing. Oh, eight Europe sovereign and eleven August eleven there were one or two days. And.

No. Oh, you're right. No, no. Why read it wrong? No. No, no. I'm sorry. My mistake you manage a multimillion dollar company. Yeah. I was managing the multi million dollar contracts for Continental Airlines fifty million dollars that I was in charge of now, there's a downside though, that I will add to that is I'm fifty two now in two thousand nine hundred the economy collapsed, and I found myself looking for a job it was very difficult to find a job without a college diploma. Even though I had all the practical knowledge all the all the world, which I blame employers. They are the biggest single source of the problem. College degree required is sick. I want to speak about that. What to do about that? Nick. Well, it's a big problem, Dan. It's a big problem. And it's one that we do drafting classes really are no easy solutions. You see all of that really stand down to this. And that is that we have been sold a big Wapping law, and that law is that unless you go to college you're not going to be successful. And that they trumping wrong with you and back lie has been perpetrated an amplified by the elite at Ivy league schools that are really all about selling the product and that product is four years of school and that lie has kind of seeped into every single poor of education and the idea is. You didn't go to college. Well, you're not that broad and you're not that intelligent. And there's something not quite right with you. And you didn't leave up potential, and as we can city promoted as than anybody to any time with people in life and she fast salute nonsense. But the employers are really doing Esa disservices well because they make you they're entrenching these lie, very entrenching, this culture, and we need to declare war on this idea that every child has got to college we really do because it's an economic problem. It's a social problem. It's a political problem. What were the twenty sixteen and twenty eighteen election's about on many, great great amount? They were about a forgotten class. People people that have been elected bodies. That's right. Well, back to the issue, though, that this ban raised and Mickey you're honest about it by saying, it's a real problem. Employers are doing the country and young people at this service. They're perpetuating the problem by college degree required. I don't know outside of medicine and law or physics mathematics specialty things like that. I don't know where it should be required. In fact, if to young people come to me to twenty one year olds. A one went to college in one didn't I there was zero preference for the one who went to college. They may be great. You can go to college and be terrific person. Obviously. But I have I it means nothing to me if you didn't go to college, and if you made something with your life while you didn't go to college..

"And you don't think any funny business happens. You think it's just straight up. He wins, boom, move on. Not think any funny business. I'm not expecting Heyman to to turn on Brock. Honestly, it make any sense for anybody not for Heyman, not for Brock nut for Roman, like nobody. Nobody needs that. Let's not say it wouldn't make sense. It wouldn't make sense. You mean for the story is right now are moving forward because from a moving forward standpoint. The idea of Heyman turning on Brock. For a full blown bad guy. Roman reigns is pretty appealing. But why would Roman do that though? That's the left the part that doesn't make sense. Why would Roman do that and why would Heyman do that? Why would hey, because it's comes with a risk, right? It's only worth it. If Roman can get the title. So why would in risk pissing off Brock listener. If Brock listener could come around and hold onto the title. So now you lost the title and you lost your client, doesn't make sense to do it because these guys have been on his side the whole time. Well, if if let's say Heyman. The second that he was fully disrespected by Brock Leser decided to go make a move with with Roman reigns because he was fed up with Brock listener. He knows Brock listener wants to leave, and he wants to be with a champion. Roman reigns has had enough. No one appreciates him anyway. He's getting the title and he's moving on. I don't know, but wouldn't it be fun? Fun. I think it'd be fun. I still don't like they'll make it make sense. But to me, it doesn't make sense that they would do that Heyman. I honestly for me, I don't care about making sense much as I just don't wanna live. I don't wanna live in between land with with Roman anymore.

We didn't get him outta here at all and believe. We tried like I was among the contingent of people with John and be like, we've we've seen enough, didn't move them.
