Apple removes Fortnite from app stores
"The APP store. It's if not the most important game in the world. Certainly one of them has protocols. David Pierce, he says. Apple's ban on fortnight came after developer at the game's changed its payment system so that it bypassed apples 30% fee on in APP purchases so epic puts out this update Apple pretty much immediately. Kicks fortnight out of the APP store, saying, you've broken our rule. It is. I mean, it is the simplest possible rule to break and they broke it. Epic clearly saw this coming and immediately files. A lawsuit against Apple here says it comes as Apple faces increased scrutiny over how it treats developers and the APP store. But it's tough to say who will come out on top, either. Someone is just going to Givin, which seems unlikely, or we're gonna have some kind of big regulation fight with Tech trends. Chuck's Iverson
Belarus' Post-Election Crackdown
"Nearly 7000 people have been detained in Belarus after protests erupted on Wednesday. This follows the presidential election results that came over the weekend. Several demonstrators who were arrested have sense accused the government of torture. Jen, What's going on? Why are people upset? Well, so this basically kind of started going back a little bit before this election, so they had an election on Sunday. But a little bit. Before that there were some protests going on and Is a lot of had to do with Alexander Lukashenko and his he's the president and his kind of failure more long term in terms of the economy in terms of managing the Corona virus. But then there was this election coming up. And because Lukashenko he's been in power for 26 years now. He was basically elected in the first, you know, nationwide Democratic elections in the country. After you know, they declared independence from the Soviet Union. It was the first nationwide really free and fair election. It was also the last nationwide free and fair election. Hey, has since then consistently crackdown on all forms of opposition. He's rigged all the elections to make sure he stays in power. And this coming up election that was coming up this past Sunday. He was planning to do the same thing. He detained the opposition. You know, the key opposition leaders. But he didn't factor in that there was basically a homemaker, a woman named Svetlana ticking off scale. She's a 37 year old former English translators stay at home Mom. She's also the wife of one of the lead opposition figures who was detained and she said, Okay, fine. You want to arrest my husband? Then I'll run for president in his stead. And she took to the streets and basically said, You know, I'm not gonna let this happen. She basically helped unite the opposition and thousands and thousands and thousands of people came out to the streets in support of her. In a way that had not been seen basically in its entire post Soviet history on DH. Then, of course, the election was rigged. As expected, she, you know, contested the results. She ended up having to fleet of Lithuania she was feared for her Children's lives. But people are angry and they're back in the streets in the thousands and tens of thousands and true to form, Lukashenko's government is again cracking down brutally and trying to repress it. Well, Courtney, we got this message from Dave, who says the situation is so fluid. How will the US respond to Lukashenko's efforts to be seen to be looking for a political solution where he still stays in power? Well, General. I mean, the U. S. Has already said that they don't believe these were free elections. We heard that from Mike Pompeo just this week, and the EU has said that I mean, pretty much the entire international community has condemned these elections. It's interesting because this comes at a time when you there have been terrible relations between the US and Minsk for years. In fact, In. Lukashenko has been under sanctions by the U. S. Since 2006 after another round of election irregularities, so knows general saying free and fair elections that have been a thing of the past. In It has been a thing of the past there. But earlier this year in February, Mike Pompeo became the highest ranking administration official to visit there. In years. He went to Minsk. He met with Lukashenko in April. The administration nominated ambassador for the country, Julie Fisher, would be that she would have been the first ambassador there in more than a decade and actually just went up for her confirmation about a week ago. But now it looks as if there are some people on the hill who are saying while we need to hold up this nomination, If we send a diplomat there, it would appear that this is an endorsement of the crackdown. There are others who think well, if ever there's a time that we need someone there Help advocate for democracy. It's now but it looks as if that nomination is held up. So what's interesting is this All comes at a time where there really was this effort, toe warm ties between Washington and Minsk, and now it looks as if once again, Lukashenko going back to his ways of Trying to rigging an election of really maintaining his title as one of Europe's last remaining dictators that may end up destroying any chance for some kind of riel. Diplomatic relations between the two countries. Well, David on Thursday, thousands of women wearing white flooded the streets to protest that violent crackdown on demonstrators that happened during the week of protests. What comes next in Belarus. Well, it's going to be obviously down to developments inside batteries but also kind of slightly grubby great power politics because how his Alexander Lukashenko survives the dictator of this country. Just on the 10 million people for 26 years. It's part because he has been incredibly adept at playing the West and Russia off against each other. So he's taking a lot of money. Over the years from Russia, he has had Vladimir Putin as a patron of last resort, but he is also Occasionally flirted with Europe in first with us because he doesn't want to be taken over wholesale by Russia. China is also a player. President Xi Jinping of China was the first major leader to congratulate Alexander Lukashenko on this kind of grotesquely rigged election as though it was a perfectly good election. China is poured money into Belarus. It's one of its hubs Fishy Jinping's Bolton Road project, so This kind of constant playing back and forth. But the problem is that he is running a road because if he gives the European Union what they want, which is for him to liberalize on back down from crushing these process. You'll probably get swept

Whatever he does he does to a level that few others can do it. So the three six times you know that's the same guy that has four. That's the same guy that bowls three hundred games. He does those things and and there'll be no surprise. You know when he wins more world series wins MVP's that's that guy he's the guy we all grew up with he's just doing it at the highest athletic level.

Kodak Crashes 85% from Recent Peak
"Kodak. We've been all over this for the past two weeks. Right I told you they got a seven hundred and sixty five million dollar loan to get into the drug. Business Kodak the Film Camera Company getting into the drug business. Turns out in their one hundred thirty, one year history they actually were in the drug business for six years from one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, hundred, ninety, four, it was a failure they got out and it's notable that they got in one thousand nine, hundred, eighty, two years before the recession set in right typical top of the cycle de Worse vacation kind of acquisition move for for a company is being managed into into the ground so. That's where it to the reason episode again and and we're back in the drug business with this seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan from the government I thought that was just kind of crazy enough all by itself because sent the stock soaring from to sixty two on a Monday to sixty dollars at the peak on a Wednesday in you know the third trading session of the week that week. Just insane. That was crazy enough right. Then what are we talk about last week? Well, they granted themselves stock options the day before announcement like that's not fishy like. Crony capitalist move, you know to just try to rake some of his money off the top of the management team. Okay. Now. This Week There's well other stuff going on. So so since last we talked the SEC is investigating this thing. And the loan from the. International, the government agencies called the DNC, the Development Finance Corporation the DNC loan is on hold. And the stock as I speak Ios below ten bucks again, and if you look at the stock chart of the last several days, it looks like it was flatlined. You know like somebody whose heart stopped and then wham the hit it with the paddles and now it looks like his heart stopped again it's a ridiculous episode but I feel like I need to clarify something because of at least one feedback email I got in this case. No, it is not okay for these executives to get stock option grants it's not okay and it wasn't okay for them to get them. I don't believe even back in May. Right I put together a time line I wrote a whole piece about this for the stands very digest and I put together a time line and my timeline showed that the order the executive order from President Trump. Was May fourteenth. Two days before that Kodak moves seventy million dollars from a Chinese subsidiary to a US subsidiary quote in anticipation of an intercompany transaction and quote I believe starting up a new pharmaceutical subsidiary constitutes an intercompany transaction, right? So that was actually made twelfth may fourteenth. Trump is used the executive order and invokes the defense production act and says, Hey, you know, let's lend money to companies so that we can produce drugs domestically because too much drug production is overseas in places like China and India by the way if you research that, it's not completely true. We'll talk about that. Maybe another day Kodak made the director option grants the first time on May twentieth today their annual meeting. So, eight days before they're moving money from Chinese from a foreign subsidiary to to a US subsidiary anticipation of a major transaction. Then trump invokes this defense production act, which is just appropriates money for national security right two days later, then six days later, they grant themselves these options at premium prices. Then approximately may eighth according to an interview with the CEO Kodak, and this government agencies start talking about its new drug business. Then on July twenty seven, these idiots grant themselves more options. Then July twenty eighth and it leaks out stock was up twenty, five percent that day the news leaked out. and. Then Twenty John Twenty as the big announcement right? Seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan to Kodak the shares were up four fold that day July twenty, ninth the stock price hit sixty dollars. And the volume that day is like a hundred and sixty times the previous day and the previous day was twenty, two times the David were that. Next Day July thirtieth a fellow called Mike or non gap thoughts. Which is a a newsletter that he writes on sub stack non gap thoughts. He writes this article citing these suspicious option grant dates when and strike prices next day July thirty fourth. Wall Street? Journal publishes an article citing the potential you know ninety, they said ninety five million dollar windfall for CEO Jim Continente. And there were others on on the Management Team received the options to August. Fourth Wall Street Journal publishes an article citing a new SEC investigation into the disclosure of the loan and the option grants right because it looked like the the loan with the news of the Lomas leaked out on the twenty seventh I think is really what they were concerned about. But the whole thing stinks and let me tell you something what I alluded to earlier when I said I need to make something clear about this. This is not the way capitalism is supposed to work. A corporate management team is supposed to make a lot of money. They're supposed to get ninety five million dollars for creating a business that has performed well for a period of time. That has generated you know for ninety, five, million bucks. You'd better be generating you know at least a billion or more couple of billion hopefully in free cash flow over a period of time consistently, right a real sustainable business for that kind of reward. You don't get paid that kind of money just for getting a loan to be in a business that you were in for six years out of your one, hundred, thirty, one year history and sucked at. Okay that's not the way this is supposed to work. This is the ranking crony capitalism, the EST crony capitalism. And crony capitalism is when you get paid for no in people, right it starts looking suspicious back in May when they're moving seventy million bucks from China to the US, it looks like they already knew they were going to do something and then Oh, two days later trump invokes this this executive order appropriating these loans for this kind of stuff and then up six days. Later, we start granting ourselves options at prices that suggests we know the stock is GonNa take off like a rocket ship. Then we do it again on July twenty seven just to show you how utterly stupid we are. This is not the way it's supposed to work they basically what they did here was. They just took money from well, you know this government money. So you could say they took taxpayer money and they said how can we get way too much of this money in our own pockets? Oh, I know let's grant ourselves a bunch of options. Okay, your stand. Now, I don't have a problem with option grants in general I. Realize people need to be incentivized. It's just the way. Things are nowadays right to to attract good management. You gotta pay them. What looks like way too much money a lot of the time, but this is not that. This is a management team taking money from taxpayers and really taken ultimately from shareholders as well. They're given themselves equity for free that the shareholders have to buy in the market. This isn't the only episode of this. You'RE GONNA see there was a smaller episode that I I kinda filed this way I didn't think I was going to mention it but there was a guy. David? T hines in a story in the Washington. Post. July. Twenty Eighth I mean it's all allegations so I don't know I'll just say this poor fool apparently borrowed four million dollars in this federal PPP paycheck paycheck protection program it was part of the cares act. Right. The cares act was that two trillion dollar corona virus bill that was signed into law in March and included three hundred and forty, nine billion in forgivable loans for small businesses to maintain operating expenses. Mostly payroll, right? That's why it's called. PAYCHECK protection program. So you can just pay your employees even though maybe you're running a restaurant and they have to stay home because of the cove in nineteen, right. So this guy gets four million from this program and then a week later people see him riding around. Miami beach in a Lamborghini. A brand new Lamborghini Lamborghini. Hurricana. Which I guess. That's an electric Lamborghini costs more than three hundred, eighteen, thousand dollars again, how stupid is this guy? That's like granting yourself options the day before the loan announcement. And of course, these things are ripe for. For, this kind of abuse, this is what you get went when the government starts literally like throwing money around all, this is done very very hastily right because we think we have to act we have to act now. and. So this is what you wind up with. You wind up with Kodak and you wind up with this poor sad sack who who thought he wasn't GonNa get caught when he use P P peabody to buy a fricking Lamborghini. It's you know somebody's going to include that in some kind of TV you know some kind of fictional TV show because it's just too priceless. So that's where we are that. That's where we are in. You know the state of of all things financial in August of twenty twenty. Boy Twenty twenty is the weirdest fricken year. I mean things that I won't even get into some of the things that that people I know have been exposed to this year, but it's just. So it's also utterly weird when you shut who who'd a thunk who'd a thunk when you shut down the global economy because you're afraid everybody's going to get the flu or whatever. That all of this stuff would happen that you would get people you know in Lamborghinis with government money and you know Kodak Management taking money out of taxpayers, pockets would have thunk it. Anybody. With a brain is the answer to that one anybody with a brain. And what what you do about what you do about it well. Look we told I told you to avoid Kodak because. People look at that kind of action and the knee jerk. The thing that's built into your brain you know that's that's been kind of evolving for hundreds of thousands of years in complete evolved for hundreds of thousands of years completely different circumstances that have nothing to do with investing. So immediately, as soon as you see that surge Kodak you want hit the buy button but I'm telling you it's deadly and wrong every single time

The One Who Serves (Luke 22:2427)
"Luke Chapter Twenty. Two. Versus Twenty four through twenty seven. A dispute arose among them talking about the disciples as to which of them was to be regarded as the greatest. and Jesus said to them. The kings of the gentiles exercise Lordship over them and those in authority over them are called benefactors but not so as you. Rather, let the greatest among you become as the youngest. And the leader as one who serves. For who is the greater one who reclines a table or one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at table. But I am among you as the one who serves. Jesus. Re defining greatness and leadership. Not According to sitting back and being served. But, stepping forward and serving the this is what? A true leader does. He or she serves. Not Exercises Lordship over those whom they. Asserts Authority over them in unhealthy ways. Obviously, we know in scripture that authority is good and granted by God to be used for good and all kinds of different ways and different relationships but Jesus, who is the ultimate or ity the Lord of all. is saying I am among you as one who serves and you should do the same the greatest among you is the servant among you. and. So I just want to encourage you to think through today. Any. Position of leadership or influence. You have not even position any way in which you lead or have influence in others lives. Maybe, it's through some kind of position maybe it's not. But to think through today. How can you lead? Influence. Others by serving today. My husband got his put you in a leadership position in your marriage. So what specifically can you do today? To serve your, wife. How can parents serve our kids? Go. Out. Of the way in serving how can. Employers those of you who are in any kind of authority and work what can you do today to serve those who you lead in work? In the church what what? Relationships, what influence? What leadership do you have and how can you serve just think about relationships in general? What can you do today? In a unique way to go out of your way to serve someone else. Oh God. Teach US lead like this. Teach us to influence like this. We pray this goes totally against the grain of the way. Leadership in the world is set up. We pray you to help us to be counter cultural to be Christ like in our leadership. In Our influence, make us servants. We pray. We pray for humility. We pray that you would use our lives and our leadership to be a blessing to people around us because we are serving people around us. Oh God even in my own life as Bray today as I think about specific ways, I can do this out made to be selfless and my life and leadership to be a servant God I. Pray this over every single person who's listening right now even as we realize. In a freshly that Jesus you are Lord and our leader, and you are are servant that you help us why we pray we pray to you because you are a servant us you promise to give us what we need. We praise you as our King Our Lord and our servant who loves US and provides for us all glory. Be to your name and reprinted you'd help us to follow your
Teenagers Surfing on the Wave of the Apocalypse
"And welcome to another edition of the shape of things to come. I'm bill floor and I'm Dean Miller and our guest this week artist student teachers. Start off where everything starts off with. Let's introduce ourselves. Then Dan My teachers. Yeah. Go ahead. Base I was more comfortable from the time. I was little kid with what were considered freaks than I like drag Queens I like boys, hugh tweets, their eyebrows I wanted them to put my makeup on J. I Sing I mean going to a dead boys concert with you're sitting in the front row at CBGB's and stiff baiters. Ripping out his pubic hair throwing at you. That's disgusting. But it was amazing. On wore I play drums as teenagers. We were filming gigs for the mumps we were helping the erasers build up their sets for their shows and we've been very involved and so there was kind of this organic thing that came together. You know maybe we should maybe we can do that. You know I mean maybe we can do that. By Play Guitar. Let's say you had. School. In one hand and. Being in a band and hanging out with blondie. David Bowie and the other hand and it was impossible to do both things. Boy Do you think would happen. There'd be less school-going. Joe I buy another talk. I wanted to be a rock and roller I play guitar, and I just wanted to make wild noise. Or. Unveil. muschamp coffee you would see warhol walking around with his polaroid and handing out copies into you magazine. So this is what I thought. Every teenager did it didn't occur to me that. What an unusual environment this what? We're here sort of to talk a little bit about the band place music and give people a chance to find out what the student teachers are really because I think a lot of people in New York even though I know most of the people in the band from the New York area don't know that much about student teachers. Any. Seems to be a mystery to herself and everyone. While sometimes, that's effective. I don't know. Imagine this group of teenagers in the late seventies in new. York. City. Most of them are still in high school, a couple of recently graduated. They're obsessed with bands like television and Patti Smith the Ramones Roxy Music. Most of them come from fractured family lives and find community in the club scene. But get this in the span of six months they go from not knowing how to play instruments to headlining their favorite clubs. Then opening IGGY pop getting interviewed I'm GonNa have their favorite radio stations eighty nine point one W Nyu. How do they make that happen? This Ragtag Group of best friends lived and breathed the scene. They spent all their time together by records running fan clubs. Reading. Rock magazines. They'd go to shows together and off often get mistaken for being in a band so. One day in bills living room they decide. Why not? Let's form one. Just. kind of said that everybody everybody's all play drums and I'll play guitar. Okay. You play Bass and I said, okay. Then lawyer said well, I don't know if my voice will be good enough because she was gonNA sing. So maybe you should be from female rhythm section and then we We all hated. Wouldn't bands felt like sports teams. And with David I both being gay and Philip, and then later Joe being straight boys and then, Lauren? Laurean. Laura being the female rhythm section we really love what we did visually. I think it's more important than we have a concept an idea. I A music. Actual technical ability because we knew our instruments well enough to be able to contain the idea to an extent. But you guys can make it. I mean you think you're gonNA make it after the All of us into. Your knew we weren't musicians and none of us cared but we cared about is that we were gonNA have a blast. We were going to be cool. We were GONNA be the coolest kids and we weren't going to imitate anyway.

We're not in the middle of a crisis. But I thought I don't know what they think and maybe there things they want me to know about them that I am unaware of. I mean that was really curious like did we go through all that and nobody knows anything. And how do we pass that on did we? Did we go through a plague for nothing? Did we learn anything? Because that's what made me think about it because I realized this is not an assumed thing and I realized with my straight friends here at the station. Knowledge of the AIDS crisis is not an assumed thing they know about. It's just so part of my being fucking take pills every day. You can't ever forget it so it's I have heidel otherwise my reference point is way off. It's my reference point so David what we did is we reached out to this. Big New York Organization.

Hiv and AIDS work since the epidemic started it was founded because of crisis and they've been doing HIV AIDS work ever since And so not only do they work with people from your generation.

And then how did that lead you? Gmac GMAC had a house called the house of Latex and it was a prevention house and not only were. They are part of the community as walking competing in categories such as row Bogan runaway They also were like prevention house so they will be at the ball handing out condoms omitting information.

I felt really visible at the time because even though I think it was possible at all or it now. And it's it's such ignorant part for me. I was very ignorant because I was like. I don't do drugs. I don't you know I don't I? Don't hang with those people quote I don't do risky behavior relationship. I'm faithful my partners faithful.

He had something and at the same time. Like I said I was working at. Gmac where all the information there right But I still felt invincible and still was around the fact that anyone can get it would made you go. Get the test. I got a call from someone to saying that I should get tested on that my love of cheating on me being messy. The person was being messy but at the same time I was like okay whatever he and I went to go get tested and it was a shock to me when I first went to go get tested because they They said you know you are Jimmy.

"David. This is the first time we're meeting. I'm so grateful to be here at your house. Your beautiful home on a rainy day in Los Angeles Yeah. It's supposed to rain for a week. But you do look slightly defeated when we came in first of all you have a cop car and you have a dusty. Ferrari who the COP. Cars there to scare. People have notes prepared for me absolutely insane that you do. I'm I'm so grateful that you would take the time right now about me. I don't know I'm just so. Ill PREPARED FOR ANYTHING. I do in this world so I just find it so like I'm inspired by people that come prepared to things because I'm just all over the place as you can see when you walked in so you came in at the exact time you're supposed to come in but I was being an idiot and I I'm running completely behind because as uploading a video today and after I posted it I found out that the song I was using to edit the entire video too was blocked in a bunch of countries. So the labels not letting me use the song. They're gonNA take the video down so they take the video down so now I was scrambling and looking for another song that kind of matches the previous song and that's impossible to find so. I'm like sweating in my bed. I had a shower running because I was going to jump in the shower until and then I got the notification that the label video down. It's not you you're you're great. I literally was just like in the worst spot down from different countries or territories different countries but one of the countries I think included is the US so that's kind of the majority of my audience. That's maybe it's available in like Germany. But that'll be. That'll be a half a percent of my viewers. I don't know if that'll do it for me but I'm sorry. At least the German people get the video today meticulous editor. Yeah so much David I always feel like I have relatively strong angle with people that I haven't met before the podcast right. There's a lot to talk about. Is that what you mean? It's like how do I get to the places that I wanna go with word because you can literally just tell me and we'll end up there but you can ask me little any question. You want an entire world and if I hate the question I'll just kind of jump around awkwardly I write. Who is your third grade. Love My Love Am. I got actually do remember. Her name. Is Hannah sandstorm? And what a great name. Yeah it was the best name And it's you make it up though honestly thinking back now. I think it was Hannah Sandstrom but I think I mentally cases to Tanna sandstorm because yes causing a. She's in the third grade. I don't know how to describe her now. I don't know I honestly think the only guy that paid any attention in any grade I had like the worst luck luck. I didn't have anything with any girl house like. I don't know I had like these when I first got glasses. I didn't realize that you can get like cool glasses like the ones I'm wearing right now. I feel pretty cool glasses. Well thank you for that. No but I I got like Harry Potter glasses at the time. Because I didn't know that there was a cool way to look okay and glasses so yeah I was. I just looked like a complete idiot. Biggest narrowed ever. Yeah I was like friends with all the girls I was. I was like everybody's gay best friend. Everybody's gay straight best friend is kind of what I was. I was drinking. Your friends would actually remember you like that. One hundred percent. Oh my God. Yeah even Assistant Natalie. That's the only way she remembers me. That's exactly why was this big like that. It's just like a big little loser in school. Well Yeah I remember. My aunt wants saints me like Oh I remember you saying that you wanted to move to Hollywood and you were going to buy a limo episode head. You probably don't know what headgear like. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah all right. It's a fifty fifty chance of me knowing something from like anything from longer than ten years ago but this time I knew this is going to be an awesome awesome adventure for me because I really need you. I was thinking on the way over. I really need you to keep me in education about a few things you have structure and like I don't have structure. That's why I'm so like Jazz. People like in the traditional world because they have structure. I'm assuming when you do anything with film or anything like that. You have someone structure like you know what you're doing like day in and day out your schedule but I don't have anything like that case in point you walked in and my shower was running for the past ten minutes and I was hoping to get one one point side. I just couldn't structure. No no no. I'm just. I'm not buying anything I knew as we pulled up. How on a scale of one to ten? How grumpy are your neighbors with you? Far CODED YOU RUN INTO. Nope we just vibe. Did you see any neighbors? Just people look at look you. This is on high alert clearly tapped into something. I'm neighbor so I would say at ten half of them like me and the other half like just don't like me and it's tough because fucking youtubers get the worst rap and it's like you can be a youtuber this little gear and cancer but people hate youtubers. Why do you say at go up to any of your friends and say hey? I'm doing a podcast. The youtuber and I'll go either fucker stooping solo. It's because it I don't have any friends. Second of all. Got It all right here. You wouldn't even know who to ask and my friends don't even know. What Youtube is. It's the funky new format picture. The reason I like Youtube I mean the reason I know you got. The bad rap is because it's not really a platform that's like it's not like a NBC or CBS. Moderated by execs. And you know it's like they control what's posted and put out there on Youtube. Anybody can upload and anybody can be youtuber therefore anybody represents the the whole right so like one. One guy goes puzzle video of him doing some extremely stupid. And that's what the media picks up the now all the youtubers like grouped in this are just dumb idiots and horrible people which I totally get and that's just like that's kind of the negative side. Well okay I I have Four counterarguments right with you specifically or count on a personal level I feel like podcasting can be viewed these same way. Slide with you know. Oh Yes podcasting is like so like intellectual one hundred percent look like podcasting is like like having a conversation as a lot more intellectual audio make you more nervous than maybe doing like no no. I love audio when I'm on somebody else's but I hate it when I'm on my own podcast. I don't know what it is. I think it's because my co host is Jason's only us too and we see each other literally twenty four seven and every time something does happen we put in the videos so then we're just like okay. What new thing do we talk about on the podcast? He's like he's the funniest guy no but we can't like sometimes it's so hard to come up with a new new stories to talk about that. We haven't talked about ready. Were talking about like anybody can be a youtuber baby. Technically that's true. Nobody can have like fucking twenty million followers. And because you'd have that intangible quality that sounds like a positive thing I've only known this like what you do with your humor in your accessibility. At least the perception of accessibility Yeah that's part of the reason. The neighbors don't like me. There's just too many people that show up and I've said that so many times like people shouldn't show up and everybody that comes to the door has like a new excuse and they're like we flew in from Oregon. So then what happens so then. Let's say let's say one guy came to my door. It was like eleven thirty at night and it was two guys and they're like in their late twenty s and they had six pack of Beers and they're like let's go drink. Let's go get some beers. Let's go around town. I was like and it's so crazy. Because they think they know you watch these videos and it's not like that at. Aw and it's such an awkward thing to like be like. Hey thanks for whatever supporting me but at the same time. Please support my privacy. Exchan- fame than like a circuit has shifted. Your personality. Do you find yourself guard. Lower leg Like building up the barriers. Because I feel that way. They don't go to my house but come. Ralph's when I'm pine secret. What do you like in a girl integral? You liked it when I go. I don't know like physically I I'm just into short girls. That's all that's like five five foot five okay but my friend. Alex he was he would like it a lot of girls as a kid and one day I was kinda girls are you into and he was like I just love short girls man and I was like. I was so impressionable at the time that for some reason I just took that on. I was like right me too and ever since then I've just been into like short girls and there's no explanation other than Alex. Put that in my head and I'm like a big people pleaser so I like what other people like. Oh he's still my best friend even to this day where is he? He's in my hometown. Oh Kim through pinecone one set his face and the Huma staph infection and now he walks with a limp. It's the worst thing in the world because we were hearing pinecone tight end. I had really good aim so it hit and run the cheek and yeah and we don't know if it was directly because of my pinecone that he got this half infection or was the scab around the time like Alex helped me so like I surround vine. Do you remember. This is what I need you to tell me and give me an education. He just helped me with with vine. You'd help me film all these videos. And he never asked for money he never asked for a tag and I was like. Why do you help me with all this when I'm getting all these hours? I'm getting all these brand deals and you're not getting anything and he's like watching you grow and watching you succeed like makes me just as happy as you doing yourself and there was like the craziest thing to hear especially in high school and like that was yeah. He's definitely one of course friends of mine in terms of social hierarchy in high school right. Like how would you grade yourself? I was like a C. minus which is the worst place you should either be like an APP or a why why was almost give myself because I wanted. Popularity had no idea how to get it so I was in that limbo. At least if you're in you're making a decision group are you in like what were the kids you hung out with Donors like John McCain. Kids drama could right. Yeah did you go to your high school reunion of the US I went to my twentieth. What that like. It was Kind of Bahrain was less satisfying..

"He can knock your story down then. It was said as a joke. You know because obviously that's not the only skill set you need to newspaper editor but but there was an ethic to what we wouldn't run and of course. There's nothing like that with the Internet. Now as soon as somebody thinks they know something it's published when you became a TV writer you got involved in a very different kind of storytelling. When you're writing television you don't have you may have fealty to the capital. T. Truth or responsibility to the capital. T. Truth but you are. You are absolved of responsibility to the lower case t truth because you're making fiction. What did you have to learn when you got you know when you got assigned an episode and when you first became a staff writer about what makes television work relative to what makes a you know a similar narrative in a newspaper work? Television is just drama or it is when it works. I guess when I was hired to start writing episodes of a television show that was based on on Nonfiction Book of mine. I didn't learn the mill you because I'd written the book so I had that you know I didn't have to do any research into what I was writing about. In fact I I sort of walked into that writer's room and I became an easy resource for Any technical questions that came up. You know everybody wanted to ask me anything about You know a a Barium and intimidate test for gunshot residue or or what was probable cause or has an autopsy work. I had spent the year in homicide unit. So I could. I can answer this questions. What I had to learn was drama. You know I think. The first thing they did was they said read plays. Do you go to the theater. Do you know how much familiar are you with drama? And I had gone to the theater a lot. I enjoyed the theatre. I had tickets to the Shakespeare Theater in DC. And I've seen a lot of stuff on stage in Baltimore and I you know I just. I enjoyed it for just enjoying it. But I hadn't made any kind of system. Systemic study on it but I remember Jimmy Mirror pressing The two books in my hand up here in Delhi and O.`Neil check off and Telling me read. These plays if you haven't read them in by the way if they come around seem on on stage and he wasn't wrong. I mean you know I. It sounds a little bit Highfaluting since we were writing a network. Tv Show but all the guys I worked with playwrights. They were people who had their place produced. And you know Jamie Wash Mira Eric over Meyer. Tom Fontana they're telling me you have a different job now. You're a drama. `test try to you know. Try to try and think about what you're doing. And so the pacing was different and dialogue mattered intensely and every line had to justify itself and there was a whole new vernacular learn. Never mind the camera and the actual technocracy of putting film of the cat. That was it was much longer before learned to that but first thing. I had to learn how to write a script. I certainly didn't have the pace incorrect. Did I will wrap up with David. Simon after a quick break still to come he'll tell me about one of the most unique challenges he encountered when he was making the wire. It's Bullseye for maximum fund dot org and NPR all that data collection of the last ten years of your movements. It can have real life consequences if you have that much information. That information is going to be misused. I'm newsom Roti. And who decides what's right or wrong in our digital world. That's next time on the Ted Radio Hour from NPR. Subscribe or listen. Now it's Bullseye. Jessie foreign my guest is David Simon. He is of course. The creator of the wired the deuce and other television shows. His new show is called the plot against America it set in the nineteen forties and imagines an America where the aviator Charles Lindbergh an isolationist and Nazi sympathizer runs for President Against Franklin D Roosevelt. It's airing on HBO. Now let's get back into our conversation. There's a book about the wire. That's really great like the idea that a TV tie in book would be really good is a strange one But the the wire book which came out just I think maybe what like two years into the runner? Three years into the run in the middle of the run is really great and one of the things that it reproduces is some of the arguments that you made on behalf of the show to. Hbo and they're they're like incredibly forceful but not None of them are like wine. You know what I mean. I'm trying to think of a classier way to say that. But I failed. None of them are like whiny. They're just they're really clear. And it's obvious that you had that you had created that show with a very specific aims in mind having worked on homicide life on the streets which was one of the best police television shows that had existed to the point that the wire was created. What did you want the wire to be that couldn't be done on? Nypd blue or homicide or dragnet. Wanted it to be much darker. Because I wanted to attack the drug war as being a dysfunctional Policy that had done so much to destroy urban society in in nothing less than urban society. I think it's you know to this moment. I think it's one of the most senior policy disasters in the history of the country So I wanted to attack that and to do that. I wanted to create continuing narrative which meant first of all if it's on cable. I learned this from watching Tom's earlier. Show US Tom. Fontana put odds on. Hbo and Hbo let him and it was such a extraordinarily dark sharing show about a a maximum security prison. That I thought well I GOTTA. They'll put that on the air. They'll put anything on the air so I mean the first thing I did was I. I did a mini series based on my second book the corner which is about a year on in an open air drug market in West Baltimore Nonfiction Book and Did you pitch that series with? Hey guys if if you'll make us you'll put anything on the air. I don't think I had to say that sentence because clearly they were GonNa Count Program Network television. That was their intent. I mean they were already in that business. Oz was in evidence. In fact. I I offered to do it with Tom. And for whatever reason Tom Sent me in there alone. And so I I. It's sold as a miniseries and I went to work on the scripts involved in that book and once I'd seen first of all you can you could. You didn't have to tell a tale that was full of redemption and made people feel good every thirteen minutes so that they would go to commercials and by You Know Lincoln's and ipods and Bluejeans and whatever else the advertisers were not there to be appeased that there were no advertise. Cable offered something very different. Which is we don't have to tell a story that makes audiences happy at the end and puts them in a buying mood. We can maintain an audience base by counter programming network television. So we don't need so much redemption so much humor in so much you know and people are not going to walk away from the television set if they can watch it three or four times. You know okay. You can't get it on Sunday night. Maybe catch it on Wednesday. Suddenly there was a a vehicle that could deliver a darker image and a dot and a darker narrative and that was important. Because that's all I had to say it was that I was trained as a journalist and I was interested in writing political trauma drama. That has a political purpose political argument or or steeped in steeped in the issue. It's dealing with and finally there was a vehicle on television. Where you could do some grownup stuff. You know it was the medium I think in some ways matured when they got rid of the advertisers on premium cable. And so that was. The one thing that I understood going in with wire was if you know they'll give me the room I can tell something really long really. Nate can have sub themes and people will find it and maybe not everybody but enough people find it so maybe they'll let me keep doing it. I remember when the show was starting to get the recognition that it deserved which didn't really happen until later in its run and and frankly only only happened partially even then. I remember hearing a lot of people talking about Omar the the character who was a stick up man who robbed drug dealers and brother. Musone character who was sort of like If A fantastical version of a of a member of the fruit of Islam was also Contract killer and how much they love them and I remember thinking it was interesting that it was the characters it was those characters who were kind of the biggest And the ones who were closest to characters in like a Western or an opera or something else that is You know there's not afraid to be grand coup resonated people the most. I don't know if that was if that's true to your experience you've had probably a lot more people talk to you about the wire then I half but If it is like how did it feel at the time? What did you think of that? Yeah I mean they were gunslingers so that resonates pretty well with American audience. They were sort of loosely based on unreal people in real stories. Omar is based on a COUPLA Ninety Anders for Dan Harbin Shorty Boyd People Rob Drug Dealers in Baltimore who were known. You know many known personally to my writing partner had burns. I knew I knew. Donna Andrews for West part of his life and then brother Musone was based on a guy named Vernon counts. Who had a Muslim name? He I don't know if I think he joined the nation of Islam when he was in prison and he embraced the identity. But I don't think he was actually active but he had the vibe of being I mean I think he embraced he he. He went to the nation when he was in prison. I don't think he stayed within any really orthodox way but he emerged on the street as a As a presence with some Sort of Y vibe to him even if it wasn't legitimate what's a particularly difficult challenge that you took on on one of the shows that you've created since then that you're proud of how you managed while the one we have now a plot against America. I feel like we took a novel that was written by Philip. Roth in which It's the memories of his ten year olds self translated through That child having grown to adulthood remembering his childhood and remember again alternate history of America From the nineteen forties of his family.

"david b." Discussed on Everything's Coming Up Simpsons
"I liked it just so much because it's got some of the best flying. I love anything to do with Lisa but also Paul McCartney then Beatles are the best game worlds. She say a little bit about all those things. I will take credit for the theme of the episode. I remember number At Lunch Wendy I screw on the back of a script they wrote. Lisa becomes a vegetarian question. Mark and I showed it to this other writer Brent Forrester. Have you had less boy in storyteller. Yeah you gotta get Brenton here. He is he won't say anything but it'd be so entertaining him come in. We won't even arrived anyway but he gave me like the thumbs up or something and that was started that I remember that the the main origin of that is that we spent so much of the day. The Simpsons thinking about food and eating like you come in the morning we would sir. You know ten something ten ten thirty which is standard TV attack and then work too late. You know until way after dinner whatever but the first thing we would do is order lunch so it's like come in all right first order of business order lunch where we going for you you know. And they don't want anyone to leave the lot because that would take way too much time so you eat lunch in the writer's room and so that you don't get a break from these people ever really But a lot of time thinking about food and of course. I'm sitting there looking at food and there were Vegetarians and the staff. I wasn't now I tried to be like parched. Sometimes cheering the individual meals vegetarian ruling out certain times kinds of tight. Try to my. My theory is generally speaking on that subject. If everyone can go part way there to stars that would be a huge admit. I'm not a vegetarian but I'm always impressed by Vegetarians. I wish I could be. You've inspired. Holy People Jackie Johnson. Our guest for that episode became vegetarian and then later Vegan because the episode and I will say David Murky and was running the show at that time and he was not a vegetarian and he has subsequently become outspoken vegetarian. I don't know if the subject matter of that got him interest interest. He was very enthusiastic enthusiastic about the episode. He was the one who he was. He's huge music especially Beatles fan and so he's the one who thought to get Paul McCartney involved and he flew to England to record Paul McCartney at some undisclosed location very exciting. And I don't remember the exact name but he he quoted something to me where Paul McCartney had used my name in a sentence that was my the degree of via need one way interaction with Paul McCartney but anyway but it was that was his dave emergency. It'd get him involved so all credit to him. I believe that if you don't win friends with salad so a wow line that spawned million tattoos go places and then especially with the political climate go back to Russia is one. That is so after that the treehouse of horror. Six In this one year credits as the square root of David S Cohen. Oh Yeah we didn't mention everyone already knows but just in case you somehow missed it on the simpsons you went by David s and then because the WG a change It became David exe and I'm sure you've expanded a billion times but it was Sifi sounding rounding and it made you stand out more than the David S. That was already signed up when we finally did get it represented by the Union. There was already a David s Cohen. They they won't allow to people with the same name in the union because it's confusing so yes X. Because X. is cool. That's my math background a lot of times. People wrongly wrongly. You did not fall into this trap but people rungs. I heard it was because it looks like David Times Cohen and that actually never thought until People Times Cohen Equal hilarious doesn't have to take a little break Friendly fire is a podcast about war movies.

But I think like if I lived in Florida, okay? Which is very likely. I think it would always be worth it to have a baby c could throw the placenta to gator. So now in cater with love percentage. So worth it to have the meaning then fathering being a mentor to this child and taking adoption. I just do it. So I could throw the placenta too. Well. I was excited to come in this morning and get the opportunity to talk to you. And I have a lot of gratitude for that. Because I'm an enormous fan of your mind. And this is a huge treat from me. Gosh, it's street for me to and you know, that's another thing. And I knew you came from a big family. But I think that's another reason that we could be friends. I always feel like people who come from big families. There's something in common, you know, Sarah, thyr and wife. Yeah, he comes from a big family. And I love the thyr fan. I love how you meet one. And you can tell that you're talking to a thyr my God. Yes. Yeah. It's not that they they do resemble each other. But their voices are like, but they just have a sensibility. That's similar. I love meeting people in big families who who who have that. And I think too I feel so bad for people who only children I think it's really important to be able to hide in a family, and I don't think. That glare. I don't think that attention is healthy in any way to get that much attention from from apparent. I just don't think it's good for anybody. I just got back, you know, from the holidays a while ago. And I so much about my life is we do the podcast the show. There's the the big Conan logo on urinal cakes at the office. I mean, it's just ridiculous. And I'm Anne. And that can get toxic. And then you go home, and nobody cares. They don't care. We all gathered around and they make fun of me. And I'm the butt of jokes. And you're right back in there. You're having some of the same arguments you had back, you know, twenty years before with the same people, and there's the same alliances, and as, you know, shifting alliances all the time, you know, it's fascinating. But incredibly comforting to go back and just be part of a larger unit again, I feel bad for with back pain. I feel really bad for people with Crohn's disease. But I think I feel worse for people who hate their families. And who say have got Christmas outta my goodness survive. I just think that something so fundamental to to to have gotten the short straw there. I feel so grateful to to just the to be related to people who I'm just crazy about. Yeah. Well, this is a nice we ended on a sweet note. We did. Is there anything I can mention it will help you in any way you so don't need my help. But anything like, you know, tuna David sedaris is you know, has a new sweater collection that he's putting out there. You know, David has a line of jewelry anything at all. I can mention that would help you in any way. Golly, that's awfully nice of you to offer. But I can't think of anything they're doing more of the same doing again say that well by far whether it was mentioned it to my wife, or anyone I ran into today who knew I was going to be talking to you. If you could just know how much their faces lit up and how excited they were four. Me. That's a nice thing. That's a nice thing for you to know. You've made a lot of people very very happy David sedaris, what a thrill seriously. Thank you very much. Thank you counted. Good, man. We just ended with a firm hint shake..
"david b." Discussed on KTTH 770AM
"We bring. Okay. Occasionally Christmas brings people together in a very surprising way. And this version of little drummer, boy, you may recognize the voice of David Bowie. I did the Brits always insisted Bowie. They do they do. I know when I worked in Brunell said David Bowie like most Americans. We're not going to go there. Okay. It's David Bowie. David B, W I E, and he is combined here in a version with which I was not familiar with Bing Crosby and Bing Crosby better known perhaps for an even more popular Christmas song called white Christmas. I think that's still the best selling single of all time in any event. This the choice here of rockstar. Greg Tomlin have you recorded your own version of little drummer boy. Not yet. Okay. There things to come one eight hundred nine five five seventeen seventy six. Let me go back to Don in. Columbus was asking. I think it's a fair enough question is how could it be that some of the very same Republicans and conservatives who were pushing hard for the impeachment of Bill Clinton are basically saying there's no cause to impeach Donald Trump. Where Bill Clinton says Don in Columbus was being impeached for sexual transgressions. Donald Trump has not been a perfect husband. And he knowledge that by the way, and it's very unseemly for anyone who's running for president to be involved with paying hush money to a playboy playmate and to an adult actress, I think that's the polite way to reform referred to to stormies profession. That that's that's an interesting. Can you imagine that title somewhere, stormies, profession, whatever? Okay. Here's the here's the key difference as I said during the whole Clinton impeachment fight he was not being impeached for something he did in the bedroom. He wasn't. He was being impeached for stuff that he had done in the courtroom or to be more specific the grand jury room as president of the United States, not before he was president as president of the United States. He gave testimony under oath. That was clearly perjury. It was not true. He acknowledged later that was not true. And this had to do with a case by the way in which he was accused of. Having exposed himself to to someone while he was governor of Arkansas. Paula Jones, and she sued for it. And he had asked her to do something. And that's clearly illegal, and he ended up paying Paula Jones, eight hundred thousand dollars because of that athlete guilty to that. Yeah. And the supreme court had already ruled nine to nothing that Bill Clinton could not be exempted from that kind of lawsuit. Simply because he was present the United States this stop it. Okay. The the entire thing. And by the way, Ken Starr, who we had on this show who was the special prosecutor also wishes the whole thing hadn't gone the way that it did. But once you are asked to investigate and once she was established that the president of the United States has clearly lied under oath in a formal legal proceeding. And if the president of the United States has not simply apologized come forward acknowledged his guilt, if he's still basically stonewalling. And this is a point that Peggy Noonan made an excellent column that was the big mistake that Clinton made. I mean, he made plenty of big mistakes. Obviously the actions were big mistakes. But there's another aspect of this too. As far as Monica Lewinsky was concerned, and this was not the subject of his impeachment. Is impeachment was for obstruction of Justice. And and for perjury. Those are the two grounds for impeachment articles of impeachment that that actually got through the house and were before the Senate. No, we wasn't removed from office. But you see the the difficulty here is that with Monica Lewinsky that was clearly a case of what would be considered workplace harassment. And yes, she was twenty two when they began their relationship, and she was an intern. She was a volunteer and working in the White House kind of thing, which is just so outrageous. There is no implication anywhere of. Of. Unwanted workplace harassment on the part of President Trump not when he was a corporate head not when he was a candidate certainly not when he's president. And it is very different. If you've been engaged in this kind of activity in the White House now, this is not to say, President Trump is his pure as the driven snow. No. I don't think I don't think Malania believes that. But it is to say that there is a difference here. RJ into coma. RJ you're on the Medved show. Yeah. Michael. I don't know why we're sitting here discussing what what Trump possibly did with his money when we have over two hundred over two hundred close to two hundred and fifty congress people that have not been impeached. They have not they have not been indicted, and they went ahead and dipped into their rate fund that they put together for themselves of tax payers money when would those Dighton, and when would those down here in the next election? Okay. The the problem with this with President Trump. It's because he didn't report it it was secret. And there was an attempt to hide the contributions that he gave for stormy Daniels and that he worked out with the National Enquirer allegedly with Karen McDougal. The playboy playmate. You see the arrangement you're talking about. Which is by the way, congress is supposed to be voting on putting an end to that before the end of the session. That's one of the things that they may actually get accomplished. None of that was hidden secret silent it it was part of the public record. And does that mean that they they didn't do effectively the same thing they did effectively the same thing? And you're right to bring it up. But. It's one of the reasons I think it's highly unlikely that President Trump are will be either impeached by the house and certainly not removed from office by the Senate on this issue of campaign finance violations..

"David yes dave dave david david boy wet waking waking listeners find out all about you and everything you do everything i do is at david c smalley dot com my twitter is david c smalley my patriotic david smalley everything david c smalley follow that listens podcasts numerous we have a we have the the smalley effect podcast is usually with comedians we just had maryland rice cope on from always only in philadelphia and she was khloe on twenty four those who don't know and mister show this show absolutely yep as she was great and you know you know i i usually bring in comedians to do stuff and then dogma debate you know we talked with we talked with people who were antiscience quite often and i try to get them on the dark side and you get them on the show i can't imagine it's easy to book those people it's because i'm you know what i'm gonna i'm just always very respectful in my challenges don't i don't talk down to them i understand that a lot of times the way they got to their view because they believe they're doing the most good for the world and i just disagree as to what that good is and what it means to be good and so we get to talk about that we talk about morality we talk about the bible but it's always respectful challenges so and to be fair that's almost a really good reason why we separated things out to the smalley effect podcast because when we wouldn't have a christian or you know someone from the right wing or something like that all i can astrology or whatever right it would be it would be one of it would be like three or four of us sitting around talking not well it would be that but we know we drive f bombs we drop f bombs and have comedians on and then pastors would listen to that episode and go.

"But now i'm reading excited to have with me for this conversation david french david french is probably the most conservative think of that i've had on the podcasts so fox he's a senior fellow at the national review institute and writes a lot for national view itself as a staff writer that he's also past president of dacians individual rights in education i've gotten to know david little bit of past year and he's truly one of the most decent people i know who's being attacked and vilified and really nasty ways about the trump is right and i think that if anything encapsulates the coalition of democratic forces of over decent people who have deep disagreements as you'll see of adiala g and worldview the two can actually come together to defend some basic institutions than it's hopefully people like david and i and we expect some of our rowdies and some differences and really wide ranging from komo's ation over the next forty forty five minutes or so so i'm a hub enjoy compensation welcome david thanks for having me so listen you a proud member of conservative movement you writer for national review and you saw of the course of a primary a lot of people with whom you foot you agreed on a lot of important political matters supporting a candidate who strongly strongly dislike new stanley disagree i think there's a set of questions they have about how it made you feel and so on i don't get to sake too early in this in this conversation i one of the things but i'm wondering about sort of what that reveal to you about the differences you have people where you you might afford you had some allowed is always awale those differences and veja sort of played out that political situation well you know in any movement you're aware that there's a range of people with a range of different levels of individual character so that aspect of it shouldn't surprise anybody if people reveal different kinds of character under stress i think.
