"So and then if you're curious about, you know, doing your next vacation a lot of people wonder like how long do I have to go out? A lot of people get seasick they have anywhere from four hours six hour eight hour 10 hour wage. Twelve-hour fourteen-hour to 18 hour to two and three day trips. I couldn't imagine doing that. Oh my gosh, I don't get seasick. But two and three days would be quite a bit. And then when you walk in price most of the smaller boats, he said we're going to be from 175 or 225 per person per hour with the bigger boats going anywhere from 2:30 to 300. So just just to give you some idea, you know about what you'd be getting into if you took a trip, but we've done that a lot and it's I mean, it's so much fun and fighting fish those those Jokers. They're they're they are no joke, they will fight you to get in that boat. They really will how big how big are the boats in this particular group? Most of them Captain Hayes was saying hold six people there are some that hold more and then they do have the party boats. We never really had to get experience on the party boat Sanford. Is catching anything of note, you know, we would always have like doing the the the six person for my bachelor weekend. I'd had some folks go down and we went out two days the first day we didn't catch hardly anything the second day. We went out and some crazy choppy water. I mean we were like at one point. I thought it was either catch the fish or fall overboard, which I probably wouldn't have caught the fish. But I mean the waves are crazy and like Perfect Storm feeling feeling kind of crazy, but we caught a ton. We we caught almost every everything in our limit in like an hour now it was awesome. So and that, you know, that's part of it some days you're going to catch something and some days you might not but but yeah that makes the trip really find so all in it was it a great vacation. Like I said, it was different and we had to know that going in and just kind of prepare ourselves, but it was it was still kind of disappointing Not Dead. Out to the not to go to the restaurants that we love and not to get do some of the fun things that we normally do with the kids that they you know that they like to do but they still had a good time and you know, it's just the important thing like we talk about all the time is we met a ton of family memories so discuss the important. Yeah, and I asked about the size of Bose cuz I've been deep sea fishing several times. I've never had a problem but years ago, we did a little group from our church..

"And that kind of thing you do learn to that. Yeah, you learn so they talked about the importance of knife cuts and basic seasonings for various Foods in a lot of its own. You know Food Network's website. You can look at recipes there as well. That's pretty cool. Huh. I'll have to do that cool. Well back-to-back two desk wage. I'm just kidding what makes you know, you'd have talked about this before and I think Destin's exact place. I've been there several times but makes the area special to you personally. Well for me and my family, I think Nostalgia is a big part of it. You know, we've been going to either Panama City or destination since I was two years old. So there's a lot of family memories that are that are encapsulated, you know, in the different parts of the beaches and yeah different places we stayed and so that's a that's a big part of it. But on top of that the water in Destin is absolutely gorgeous. The the sand the sand a lot of people, you know, Don't mind the the pack down sand and it's easier to walk on I get that especially as you know have any issues totally understand, you know wanting to be able to walk a little box on the sand but those sugar sand beaches and the Beautiful turquoise water. I mean that's part of it as well. A lot of great restaurants. We hit some of our our favorites for takeout. We did the back porch and we did Acme Oyster House and which started I think in in New Orleans, but they've got a place in in Destin now and then they've got the job seafood markets. We always tend to frequent Desta nice restaurants on 98. So it's right by the donut hole which makes it easier to, you know, do a twofer. Yeah. God darn it. I gotta go to Jonah even yeah, I guess some shrimp and oysters, I mean shrimp oysters, whatever scallops and then grab some donuts and then, you know not even at the same time obviously, but We get makes the trip a little bit easier and then you know deep sea fishing is has normally been a big part of our trips. We didn't get to do it this time, but I did speak with Captain Eric Hayes of Misa. I guess that's how you pronounce it in my S8 Chargers and he gave me some cool information cuz I've always wondered you know, what what are they fishing for a long time to the year? So I'm just going to run through that a little bit just to to give them a shout and talk a little bit about Destin's called the luckiest the luckiest the luckiest fishing the world's luckiest fishing Village and they've got a huge Fleet that goes out there at HarborWalk, but March through April and they're catching Snapper Vermilion Vermilion Snapper wage and Triggerfish on shorter trips, and then some of the Deepwater trips. They're catching grouper. And then may they are catching Triggerfish and still catching the Vermilion Snappers on short trips along with amberjack. Have you ever had? Amberjack? It's great stuff. That's a great tasting fish. Yeah it is and that's the around in May and that's the opening of the red snapper season. So red snapper is also a really good game and fish June through July when a lot of people taking vacations, they're concentrating primarily on red snapper and grouper August through October is red snapper red snapper season's over so they go back to walk Target in the Vermilion different Vermilion staffers on the shorter trips with amberjack and group or on the longer trips..

"She took a helicopter ride with Chase who's my ten-year-old. I took a helicopter ride. It was like ten miles which turned out to be about seven minutes. Oh my gosh. Wow, so it was a quick ride, but they got some some good pictures from that. We did some dune buggies. That was that was kind of our one thing where we took a little bit of a risk, but it was the doombuggies as many times as we pass them on a trip down there. I never see anybody on them so long, you know if we're going to do one thing that might be the thing to do so but that was yeah that was fun. And again, I got to float in the ocean which is my my big thing and they're dead. All three of my kids got to do we covered the surf School in the 38 podcast. So we drove to Seaside one morning and they did that and absolutely love that. I have some pictures up on a rampage to check that out but they loved they loved that they did that for about an hour. I think it was so that was fun. I got to go the donut hole which is you know, I get my thing we ate gosh, I don't know between all of us about ten pounds of shrimp over the week. All right. So yeah. Yeah. I mean we got we may I got to try out some new seafood recipes in the condo cuz we did cook three nights that we were there. And and then again Henderson State Park, that was something we've never done before we were always saying it's never gone, but that might be an annual thing now cuz it was it was incredibly beautiful. Not a lot of people there that that made it well worth it six is $6 for a khong. Load and then $4 for an end if you're an individual in a car trying to get in so not not a crazy price at all to do that. So we had lots of fun with that. So are you going to post Rob Famous Seafood recipes on the website? That's that's all I want to know. You know, I I should have taken some pictures automate a scallop recipe and I can't remember the name of it. But it was basically you take scallops you salt and pepper both sides of them in flour. You put some butter in a pan throw them in there and get a Seer on each side some some nice little crust on each side throwing some more butter some white wine some shallots some parsley. I'm telling you what day and that was..

"Was really it was really odd some of the takeout policies and I want to be very careful here not just for the sake of not true. To take anybody off. I don't want to do that. But I'm not a restaurant here. I don't know that all goes into these kind of decisions, but it was kind of odd some the restaurants that we tried to do take out with they wouldn't do it for dinner because they were on a wait which means there was you know, they had people in line to get a table so long there weren't a lot of people wearing masks in the area oddly enough when you went in the grocery store. There was a ton of people wearing masks. Yes, but just noticing the restaurants that we got takeout from very few mask in the restaurant. I get, you know, gotta eat obviously, right? But even people in line there weren't a lot of people wearing masks and just general other than other than the grocery store there just it looked very normal which was a little disconcerting to me and my family cuz we're trying to be very careful about you know, how we how we do things even wage? A measured approach, you know, it was we were worried about the trip in and of itself. We spoke several times before going down. You know, should we go should we do this? So the beach was really crowded where we were the closest beach access to where we were staying and so that was a little uncomfortable as well. So each subsequent day that we went to the beach. We went to Henderson State Park and they're investing which I don't know if you've been damn but it is it's gorgeous and there's not a lot of people that go Yeah, so we got a chance to kind of spread out and not have to worry about having people close to us. So that that made it a little more enjoyable the last three days we were there it was double red-flagged..

You're never meant that neither team that for seven days as we celebrate within the League you agree in. Yeah absolutely I there was a god Ivana formed by the Manchester City plans level, and quite rightly, too, but that was all. They began to give them tonight.

It didn't really matter being Liverpool picture full strength team They wouldn't have wanted anything like that to happen, but it did and all. I can say really. Is that Liverpool?

Finished the season with with like. Three defeats a two defeats, two draws, and then score any goals and. Just was was a shell of what had been previously, and these were these were experienced center national players who had been through the ringer renew. It was all about. And it didn't. Didn't really have that much. There was no wedge. There was no edge with the coaching staff and so. Particularly me I shouldn't have been surprised. It Didn't really matter in the end, but I'm intrigued to get your thoughts on the penalty Steve Did. You think it was the right decision. Listen I can see why the referee gave it because. Y-. Gomez on was across the front, and how to hold of of of Sterling, no question. The problem I have is that and the same tussle they were having sterling had half of Gomez Short, and he's left hand holding them all. So that's the only thing that annoys me I can see why it was given. A little dive, either by the way I don't see how you can die when somebody's holding onto your belly button.

Pandemic camping and non essential travel is restricted in many places. Dangerous riots have erected across North American every major city in many smaller ones. The Canadian borders closed. There are safety concerns financial concerns seemingly a new crisis every day. So this week in the retie gas, we're GONNA talk about those summer RV trip challenges, and how you can make your rv travel is safe and is satisfying as possible given the very unusual circumstances under which we now find ourselves in the summer of twenty twenty. Hello, everybody and welcome to episode two ninety-seven, seven of the RV podcast and we do have a lot to talk about this week. We have RV news. We've got your questions. We've got an interview about how you can get around those summer RV trip challenges and still get your RV to Alaska by ship. We'll talk about that and our interview the week plus we've got tips and suggestions and a lot more but I my lifelong traveling companion McBride Jennifer. Hello, my dear Hello Michael. What a time we live in What time it is yeah. You know the one thing about coming to you from where we are now on Okaloosa island near Destin Florida for Walton Beach Florida that area is. The just to show you. How different is down here? You. Know what the lead story in the paper was today. The lead story was red snapper opening day, the opening day of red snapper season was yesterday, and the local paper was filled with photos from Destin, which is known as America's luckiest fishing village of The Red snapper catch this year and Got Me Hungry I think we should go out for fish tonight. At sounds really good and something else. That was normal was that when we were at the dog park? Today we saw a whole bunch of little kids in yellow t-shirts, getting off a school bus and they were having a picnic at the park and playing on the toys and doing what kids do. This is how life is supposed to be and You know what tumultuous times we live in I mean last week last week as we were do podcast. PODCAST, we were just starting to move out of the national lockdowns from the Krona virus pandemic, and we were saying last week, who could have seen such a terrible thing? And then this week we look at the wave of terrible riots and violence, sweeping the country in the wake of the protests over police brutality in the murder of George, Floyd, and Minneapolis, and we say who could have seen such destruction and pain or this podcast as you all know is about the RV lifestyle, but we certainly have to acknowledge the. Terrible time, we're living to right now Jennifer and I are optimistic by nature where people of faith in we know, many of you are as well and so we ask those of you who? Are the same to to join us in prayer for our nation I. Mean it certainly needs it now? none of us know what is next. That's I guess the lesson that we have certainly all learned this year together, but at the same time we believe that we can move forward when it comes to summer RV trip plants, but we have to do so recognizing the changes we face, and this will be a summer like no other. We've ever experienced, and that's all GonNa. Talk about a lot in this podcast. Said! We're still in Florida on Okaloosa. Island and we are planning a getaway camping trip next weekend, and then the week after barring the unexpected, which is certainly happening a lot. This year we plan to leave Florida, and after almost six months being down here and then head to our home in Michigan, which needs some attentions lawn, work and stuff like that and then hopefully. Resume some travelling. We have lots of plans for June and July and August travel and beyond that but. As we stay up with learned anything this time of the year. It's that those plans have to be flexible. Mike Scott. US inside information and trends that shape the lifestyle years. The RV newsworthy we, as we talk here on the RV podcast about summer RV trip challenges, let's start in Maine where a federal judge as upheld the governor or Maine's requirements that all out of state visitors be quarantined for fourteen days when entering the state to campgrounds were among several small businesses that filed a federal. Federal lawsuit saying the quarantine is unconstitutional for discriminating against out of towners. The governor permits main residents to go camping, but out of towners must be quarantined fourteen days before they can travel about the small businesses heavily dependent upon tourism, said this order was hurting them financially, and sought a preliminary injunction to lift the order as their lawsuit works its way through the legal process. While the injunction was not granted. The cases still in the early stages will keep you informed when we hear more. That's just one of this summer RV trip challenges this year, but despite the many concerns, one in four Americans plan to take some sort of an RV trip in the next twelve months to get that one in four of all Americans plan to take an RV trip in the next year, and this is according to a survey that was released last week from the RV Industry Association. The reason why so many wanted to travel is something. We've been reporting on the RV LIFESTYLE DOT COM blog and And that's because of covid nineteen is people shy away from airline travel? They are expressing concerns about staying in a hotel and more and more are buying and renting RV's and to do a summer RV trip in their self contained vehicle the national media is calling this. The Year of the RV and we've been telling you. This was coming and each week we hear about more people buying our vs camping trailers, sight unseen, and the demand remains very

Yeah Pam pounded we so interesting. I? I'm I'm curious about this whole thing too because I get so dizzy like if I spin around once I have to go away and sit down and recover like like I get the. I'm the busiest person on the planet. I hate spinning. I never want to go in that. Carnival gravitron thing so you just wrote in a jet. Yes how long ago did you do this? And tell us every detail this. This was about a year ago and I flew the thunderbirds. It's actually the next video that I'm putting up but it was crazy. I mean these guys are Super Smart. People The coolest person on the team in my opinion is this lady named Mace. She is Michelle by cool base. I'm just thinking about it. Yeah so I flew with flack who was my pilot is lack. Yeah Jason Marquesa based cool names. They get cool names and they wear their little hats and everything and oh my goodness the thunderbirds. It's like someone so's their their uniform on them. They have to look like the perfect specimen of human right but anyway it was amazing and I was like okay. This is what this is what I WANNA do. I want to go supersonic and I want to do this this this because I learned about all this stuff in school and I wanna notice like like in the cockpit. And he's yeah no problem and then after that we'll do an inverted half Cuban and then we'll spin up nine gs and we'll do all this stuff. I gotTA worry about three quarters of and I tapped out and I regret that to this. I I wake up at night. And I'm like I could've done a nine g maneuver an F. Sixteen and I tapped out. It's so funny that you said that because Steve is also one half an inverted half Cuban. It says that it my twitter by like though where you like this cannot this has to stop now because my body. This must be a feeling your body is just not meant to people out and like when they when they're going out. I think yeah. So so we went. We pulled a seven point two g maneuver and he was like working up to these people like they have a g tolerance. They're used to pull like high so the seen any. Yeah they can do anything. Yeah the F sixteen is limited by the person in the seat like it can do more than humans can do and if if they pull in the stick hard enough they'll just they'll just block out the pilot will that's today at the cow. Yeah it's messed up. They have to constantly. They know what they're doing. And so we were in there. He he started with like a five. G. Maneuver which is crazy hard. And then 'cause think about it if you'RE HEADWAYS TEN POUNDS STEVE. Your case like twenty pounds seven because of my brain and my half you pulled ten g's for example which people don't do your head literally ways ten times as much as what it normally does and so your net cast and so what's funny is we had a. Gopro on Hammond go pro in me. And he's up there like Joe. Fighter pilot is like all right. We'RE GONNA turn around and I'm in the back and I looked like a turtle like my head is squished. Your vision collapses in to. It looked. Feels like you're looking through literally blackout like the blood wrestles constrict right like everything. Yeah we're GONNA go with that but it does have something to do with the blood. Like the blood is being rushed out of your head because of the the the terror rally thing or blood in the is. I don't know why that happens but it happens. And so we did seven point two GS and I was like I can't think anymore I can know my brain no longer works in. This is my limit and so I found the limit and I was like if he does more. I black out do I WANNA do that. I don't think I'd do. It seems like you know nine gs in your head flop over. It seems like it'd be bad. Yeah so tapped out and I don't know what would you do? What would you do if you had the chance of a lifetime? Like Elliott so chance of a lifetime you asked Elliott because mine is the most boring would experience the exact way. He's treating his life. Now what would you do it? I would do exactly what you did. I think. I think I would get to a point where I would be like. That's enough I'll I'm good. I get it but I also thought about going to see the blue algae water that have you seen the pictures crazy. Bioluminescence or whatever. It's happening right now. It's I it's it's ending end. Yeah and I was waiting to hear Elliott to La. What when did you come to L. A. From Florida Twenty God twenty. Ten Twenty eight thousand ten. Mainly 'cause I 'cause I saw that when I was in high school I've never seen it. Yeah but I thought about going. And then I was like the fun of experiencing it first. Hand is a little bit more fun than seeing like a cool video of it and so I was. I'm just not gonna I was like the distance between not knowing it. Existence on a video is cool. But I don't need to go see it in person. So the worst case scenario I'm just too lazy to actually go and I think you did the right thing. I don't think you need to push yourself. You're already in a fighter jet but like if I came to you Elliot and I was like look. I got an opportunity to be the passenger in a jet and make a video for something and I'm not GonNa do it. So do you WanNa do it. And if it was all set up and travel and everything is accommodated. Would you do it? Yeah if like yeah. Yeah you have me man. I got invited to one of those zero g Owen. God thing in no. I passed it to Sam Bashar. I was like some of these new. I've done that. It's amazing. Lattes space camp took us up in a plane and then I went to space camp and Space Academy Destin Huntsville Alabama Alabama. What's that was the? I was the kid that always wanted to go to space camp. But we like. We couldn't do it like I didn't go to space but like I heard about it and it's like there's a space game it was. You're that kid. Pretty Cool camp always sounded cool to me and then even at the age when it was like. Because you know. We're kids in the eighties. I and I think you are to Destin right like totally. Yeah so I remember seeing the commercials for Space Camp and going like Whoa cool and then you see the kids on the leg. Gyroscope thing and I'm like I'm out doing that. That's not for me. My brother actually works over there now. Yeah really occasionally well. They're down right now for the pandemic stuff but he takes pictures for him and stop get. Yeah it's a big. It also taught me everything I need to know about how my childhood was. Because you can't complain about much if you were the kind of kid who got to go to space Dan you went why that's academy is Joseph's academies where the adults go will you graduated. You gotta go to step two wait. We're skipping over. Something really important here what they had. What did it feel like two zero g thing was the happiest Being Oh we're joining me or you're talking to I did but he would to space camp. Let's talk to him. Thanks for being on the show so anyway. Elliott had no. I didn't know they were going to do it. And he made a joke and he was like I'm GonNa turn the plane off and you guys are GonNa feel what it's like to be weightless and we were like ha ha very funny. You can't do that. And then he did it and then I had a skill that I was holding. I remember letting go and floating in front of my face for a while and was like the coolest thing ever and the feet like the feet that cool fun like like stomach goes into your throat so the way I got to do it is in in college. We did this experiment that we had to test in zero g had to do with talking a bolt. It's not important but what was important is that we got to do like ten extra parabolas and we got vote. And I got the hang of zero G and I was like I feel like I can use this twenty seconds of this parabola to do cool stuff and then in the end like I had I had been really nice to people and like I had made friends with some of the people and he said Hey we might let one of you guys right in the jump seat on the landing. Are you interested? Yes and he goes. Okay you in this other person. We're going to do like guess. A number one through ten and whoever gets the closest to the number to do he's guests seven we said? Okay you ready number one thousand ten and he points to the other person first and they said one through ten To now I was like what this one rain and the answer is worry yes like I'm GonNa take three and all the rest of them and he's like okay. You're in the jump seat the Br- The answer was probably to. He's like yeah you. You're in the jump see. We're not letting that person what's the jump seat. It's this is the seat right behind the pilot that they fold down and you get to like see the final approach in landed. This big law is so cool. Yeah it was it was a KC one thirty five. When I was doing it but it was just amazing Israel. What's The coolest thing you've experienced in as a result of like smarter every day? And what you did with that be. Is it that no that was in college? I did Oh I think. In general interviewing Obama was amazing. Interviewing Obama was just an incredible. I get to face to face interview with President Obama It was in two thousand sixteen. Was that part of the like Like a couple of years to do. I think Hank Green did one yet. Hang did it the year before me with me. It was Ingrid Nilson and Swazi and and yeah we we got to interview Obama. And what was interesting is this was a really weird period of time. This was like right when it was Clinton trump and they just figured that out and I remember having some conversations with the president offscreen off camera..

"I honestly are we recording. Yeah we're recording. Is this the gas because I was on the podcast? Yeah then I tell you after the podcast. Hey guys welcome to the valley cast. Today we have a very special guest. Mr Destin Sandelin new now. Destin we all met in passing but Joe was the one that really kind of orchestrated this. And so we'll let joe kind of take the reins on on you know kind of introducing you and and and being kind of like the guy I mean. We're all going to get to know each other and it's going to be great. We're GONNA have a great time. Yeah best friend for for people that don't know who you are. Do you want to give people just kind of like the elevator? Pitch about what you do. And and who you are. Yeah sure. I'm an engineer from Alabama. I've youtube channel called smarter every day and a data four kids. That's about it that's pretty much it. That's your elevator. Pitch just went to the second floor of the ten story building as far as contributions society. Kids Steve. They might be really bad people. Yeah the craziest part. Do you worry about that a lot about if your kids will grow up to be jerks absolutely absolutely? That's like every every dad's nightmares like. Are they going to do the things that I taught them to do? And not do the things that I also taught them to do like. There's so many bad things that my kids scary because whenever you see like I hate to go so dark but whenever you see some terrible thing happen and Because of one individual and then their parents come on and they're like way no no. We went to church seven days a week and it's awful. I mean look at some point. Your kids are their own people and they have to make their own decisions in the slack. Benjamin went to He went to Yale and and Jenny's a serial killer are who they are and yet they're both fighting for my love the holy crap. What is this podcast? We're have you well first of all we're bunch of Wacky Boys? Oh Yeah I totally know you guys have a great time and And our podcast is often loose but we figured we would make this just a big destined love podcast because count we. We were reading about the things that you do and Joe already knew all the stuff you did but we had to kind of like do a little refresher on on the things that you have made and done and it's very impressive and so we're just like Oh man we we can just shut up and listen to you talk. The Lai don't know about that. I don't know that that'd be bad. You guys you guys bring the heat with the funny man. You guys know what's up. I mean I. I've enjoyed your stuff for a really really long time. It was two thousand twelve two thousand twelve way back way back to against source fed. The whole thing is like it's two thousand twelve. That might have been my first bitcon ever. Yeah it might've been. I mean you guys did a live thing if I saw no. We're not I know talking about food. I I gotTa Tell You man when James Hafner came to us and was like a you guys got it do something on the main stage at gone. We were like okay. Cool first of all. I don't know what that is anxiety and then everyone was like you guys are funny guys can figure it out and it was just like something. I wish I could erase from my mind That was the first time as an adult that someone told me. I needed to be less gay when he did. The we did the youtube thing and and people were really upset on my behalf and they were like. You can't say that you know to somebody can't sell them be less gay and I was like well this is. I've had this since high school. It's not that big of a deal but it was very sweet because everybody was like no no don't do it. But at the end of the day he was right. I needed to be a little less gay. You got any context. The guy that told you to be less gay is now basically like a fundamentalist all right anyway. Doesn't we're going to switch gears here? I told you we are Wacky Joe. We haven't even really said smarter every day the Youtube Channel. And you've been doing it for ever now. Two thousand nine is when you started. Yeah I think so so. Og Youtube stuff like you guys. And I started smarter every day. I think the channel started back then. Yeah two thousand. Seven's when the channel started why Google owning owning youtube and from that moment on I was just goofing around and then at some point I was like you know I did this chicken video. I held a chicken and moved my hands around. The chicken stayed in one spot ahead. Yes exactly what was so crazy is so I was going to school and learning like complex math stuff and so I I picked up. This chicken started moving in and the head stayed in one position and I was like holy cow. This explains everything about the equations that I've been learning in school and so I gave my chicken for father's day and I was like. Hey Dan Lewis Vestibule ocular reflex. It's a feedback loop the optical feet. I'm just like I'M GONNA make video about this and put it. I want people to see this. And so I posted a video to the Internet and it went viral and it didn't go viral like when you have a southern accent you think things you think people perceive you differently than they really do because I was like. Wow this is a control system. Put It on there and it went viral people being like. Hey man you gotta look at this chicken you guys might moving and then I was like no no no no not like that. It's a smart thing and they're like oh man. Hey thing what's he doing with that exact thing I e exactly so like. You can't when you have a southern accent. You can't get away from it ever will. They will assume things about you. And so that's the thing with Smarter every day. It started like that and I was. You know what I can use that like. I like people don't suspect anything so I can make things where I learned and then that just kind of took off from there. What's what would you say is the thesis statement of Your Channel? Then like what would people beginning into? And maybe like what are your. What are your three examples videos? You'd want them to watch if they were go man chicken. I mean besides soup splash. We're talking about besides poop slash. We didn't analysis poop slash poop. Splash Monroe the. What is it quilt? Poseidon this kiss sightings kiss. That's got this look. This is a control system. And if it's just like math exactly it's so we just stuff like that. Did a video about a backwards bicycle. I the only criteria. Are you guys at the point where you're like? Screw the algorithm. I'm just GonNa make what I wanNA watch never understood the algorithm never understood. Here's nobody algorithm until the Patriots looks bad and then all of a sudden the algorithm starts being real really. Everybody has an opinion about what how to best game the Algorithm? And it's all different so it's like nobody knows it's still Kinda boobs in the thumb. Now right I mean it's amazing. How incredibly important the thumbnail game is I mean? You're making a good point like at one point. I just. I'm just GONNA put a Red Circle in the thumbnail pointing to nothing literally. Put a red like a circle an arrow. It's a stupid video. I just want to upload this before the solar eclipse and I don't know I mean nobody knows Eros impossible though. It's so interesting because I follow a lot of like nerdy stuff and so my recommended is always like nerdy stuff and so i. I noticed a trend in not so much anymore but there was so many videos about like a new star wars movie or an avengers movie. And it's like secrets you don't know and there's always like a circle and an arrow pointing to like some random screen shot from the movie and it's like what am I looking at and this is obviously a trick but I'm going to click area. Let's say that work every time I don't know what the do you guys Do you sharpen the images on your thumbnails. That sometimes yeah. Yeah we're in the like we're just throwing everything we all see what works we do the thing where it's like You add a stroke around. Everybody like you cut everybody out and then you add the three pixel wide stroke. So it's like a you know a nice solid like outline or a buddy and we use grids a lot. We'll use the scrapers part thing renounce our this ever looking at really brady bunch style thing that like works the best for us right now. That's so weird especially if it's like a lot of people that are like potentially recognizable got it. Yes so you're screwed here because nobody's going to put the hat up. We were hoping you had the chicken. So Yeah I could've brought a chicken. That would have been a really good idea. We're just GONNA put a chicken over your head on thumbnail do it. Why would you not do that? Not Quicabo Hey can I ask a question? Can I bring it? Does your science men right. I think that's how you say. Yes I had best friends with Dr Jerry Algorithm exactly. He's very confusing and donut. Quesion so I got brought this. This was brought to my attention last night. My girlfriend was listening to tyler and Corey Cools podcast psychobabble. Do you know had. Marin what I've heard of it but I haven't listened to it yet. We'll they're very funny and it was an APP. Tyler court teeth pork skin or something but corey brought up a really good point that. I WANNA throw to all of us here today and I'm curious with your science background if you could explain it because I think it's kind of a mind blowing thing and it also kind of crack me up so I'm going to try to say the way he said it but it was something along the lines of for a second all of you look around the room. Look at different things. This is fun already right right. Isn't it strange at home? Be doing this to. Isn't it strange that just by looking at anything? You know what it would be like if you licked this just got weird. Look around and tell me I'm wrong. Tell me you know your every single thing would be like if you licked. It is that because of learning I know just by looking into every ball series. I old this is ready to we. Now Yeah Yeah. You're you're absolutely right. We're craft we up. I was like that's worth talk. You know what's interesting? That's not even in my room but I know with that tastes like I would be like. Is that what it is? Is it? Because it's so closely associated with way too many senses. You're getting touch. You'RE GETTING TASTE. You're getting smell Really close together that maybe your brain just automatically assuming or we've just looked everything in our existence. Okay Okay so you asked this question. And I don't know if this was just a primer or whatever but it's a really really good point because the since its sensor fusion right so I just recently did. I have a model here hold on. I recently flew in a jet and it was awesome right. Yeah I with the Air Force and I got messed up in the head literally. I actually had this on. My shelf wasn't planning this. So this is a thing. It's called the semi-circular Canal in these are in your ears. I have two of them. Well we all have two of them on over on us. We we know what we're talking. Yeah I was born with half of one. There are some advantages to that. Actually so these things are in your ears. And there's fluid in them and so as your brain or as your head is rotating it's Kinda like a little gyroscope and your body's like Oh. Your head is rotating this way. That's your will librium center. Yeah exactly exactly in so this is connected to your is actually and so if if you close your eyes and someone spins you in a chair this will start telling your head one thing and when you open your eyes if your eyes if your sense of sight and your sense of whatever don't agree then things go crazy new dying. That's my slur. So it's my worst fear but but you're kind of kind of into it a little bit there. But that sensor fusion thing I think you were serious there. Joe It it matters. There's some place that senses cross. I don't know what that's like. Look in the little mouse. It's like if you take your taste is like seventy percent smell or something and that's the.

"People would like to back but is the whole rest of the petition. Doesn't don't even know what we're talking about here because they just haven't realized quote unquote how easy it is a way to start with ideas and to build you know. So it's make it accessible for people to understand how to build and then feel self selected to the people that have grits and the staying power to do it and does that may become employees of startups now and imagine risk. You talked about your great stubbings episode a couple years ago about the type of risks that you're okay taking verse versus not okay taking and you'll talk about prices relates that we could talk about that a little bit here. How wraps evolves as time goes on and of course as the market has changed? And how you're thinking about S- Expect to think about risk and also a price going forward. Yes so the first most obvious thing to say in the world is we head found the re and say that we go. I tend to go quite far down that axes in the sense that you're a bacterial really passionate about. They can be a bit scary. It can be difficult but they they kinda somehow got a while you and then give them time to grow as entrepreneurs so I not only dislike found the risk at the beginning but I also absolutely hate found a replacement risk it. I would rather give someone the benefit of the doubt for longer to grow as a manager or whatever skilled any to grow into the to replace them. We hate with. Don't like and this is very specific to us. I guess we really don't like market timing risk because as a seat fund if you're wrong on two years in terms of adoption a really kills you as one of the reasons why I've looked at Ar Vr for years and never touched it. Because I was maybe it was deep enough in it but I was enabled to predict for you when this was gonna take off so we really don't like market risk. We don't mind execution risk. I was involved in pill pack. It is a complex beast to build and run I. There's a lot of unknowns typically around for example Tamar a kids and scaling sales marketing channels. Which is the type of vitamin taking? And the reason for that is if you're fundamentally focused on great fodder and solving customer problems value prop. That's important is. He can't tend to figure out the rest over time even though it may not be obvious the beginning and similarly we we look at. Tam Two addressable market. I guess but it's like we don't ever phrase it that way actually look through group a glimmer of greatness so even if you're tiny today you know paint me a PAF in your mind. That leads to uncapped upside and kind of what does that narrative look like so this is really not a data driven analysis more understanding where in the future distinct could be breakout and kind of what that might look like and you need a fair amount of creativity and you know a big leap of faith to usually at that step so market. Timing risk is the one that I would say I hate the most. We don't really care about financials What we do care is kind of we. We like to rock business models and what I mean that is again. It's imagining how naturally given position in a certain value chain type of value. Offer to people you you could conceivably get to a high operating leverage business that ends up you know being being really bad edible and saw again. I'd WanNa frame that's in the context of knowing what the pricing is. What your business is but it sort of imagining what future visits model look psycho defensible value. Chain position looks like in why? That's really interesting so for asking how that's change in the context of did well the the heart piece for shore is my timing and what. I've been frustrated. It by is we're getting hot. Super conflicting signals from from our companies including the ones that sell kind of fairly expensive. Enterprise Software. Where you know half of their pipeline is accelerating and half of their pipeline is full enough a cliff in your net net. They might be growing faster or slower. But I find that detecting clear signal at Lisa distance of the crisis is extremely hard and I think it's actually too early to draw any conclusions. So the the number one issue. I think we're faced with now is is Mike at Timing. It is just. Don't want to push water up a hill and I think the natural response to that for Moses would be to move earlier at defend projects that are still intact dev or in product discovery mode market discovery mode and not anywhere near a commercial skating. So that's a natural response I think I think we're just in the first innings of the crisis and that's the reason why we're being quite cautious and quite sort of deliberate to slow because I just don't know account forecast future today and Mexico discussion for a second. What have we learned about either? How how governments operating how this should be operating or or how? Allah feds operating. I think it seems that this has been a perhaps a small win for the Modern Monetary. Theory crowd of it. Looks like you know as at states you can print a lot of money and because the US is the reserve currency of the world seems less vulnerable than than we thought brass. It's premature what what do you think about that. I think that at some point. A fiscal prudence will matter. I remember not that many years ago people being worried about where to place t bonds and whether the Chinese were still buying I think the world has been on a curie drugs for a long time. And so what's happening right? Those people are looking at the past saying look. Qe works much curious like it doesn't matter and whenever the entirety of the market tells you just functions You know sort of what ask yourself well okay but if the if the majority consensus against what should be the case which is at some point you know demand. Dra as up even for t-bonds. It's not because you're the world's reserve currency that that's sufficient to drive demand What what is it about the consensus? That's wrong the last time we had a consensus across financial markets was relisted directives and an credit the ribs and at some point. The bottles just broke cried. So I'm I'M NOT A. I'm not very optimistic. About the fact that we can continue indefinitely and that government can bore indefinitely without some form of radical steepening of the yield curve or a return to inflation which you know Biden could translate into stagflation. So maybe it's because I'm from Belgium but I remember when I grew up as a kid. We went from ninety percent debt to GDP ratio to one hundred percent that the racial purely because of snowball effects on the debt right so we basically had run away deficits and of course we want to reserve currency for Shit. But this this was this was the reality and so I think it's crazy that we did this tax cuts in two thousand seventeen. That really didn't seem to benefit economy that much. I think it is by the way shocking that this corporate bailouts are happening the way they are because they fundamentally aren't helping to real economy there they're bidding out to investors and and we find that corporations and investors don't seem into invest enough in economy To to really make a difference. So if you PROB- probably number one is stimulating demand and then sustaining your social fabric in a effectively people's to survive. I think in particular in the US just got a piecemeal a sector-by-sector Economic C- combined with qe is is the wrong thing to do. I think people they're picking off sectors according to their lobbying capacity or their perceived importance to the economy at the combining that with free credit and ethic hits it's it's damaging combination of the raiders from a social standpoint. And I think at some point you to the social pressures are gonNA come home to roost pretty quickly and so I'm pessimistic. Let's close with with message to the to the founders around one of the things which is a reserve capital and not going out of business that came out on raising a would what's critical for for founders to to keep in mind as they sort of plan their next fundraise whether that's you know six months out or eighteen months or twenty four months out what's What's important for them to consider? I think it is easy to fall into a trap with all your focused on. Is Your crisis plan to financial.

"You're it comes from a place of trying to make everything better and finding solutions rather than you're looking at the past and recrimination and how did you guys think about you added another partner who you needed to? What skill set you needed to do? So I'm going to go back to the same answer in Europe. Finding a quality partner is incredibly hard. Is the reality team. So what I mean by. That is a lot of them are locked into the best platforms and won't move are kind of talent. Pool of investment is relatively young and a domain by age. But you know the the industry's probably doubled in size in the last ten years and I find that it's finding a great partner. Gpa associate is tough and that's because in the water ventures I. It's not like it's rocket science to venture capital. Your problems are always the same this to people that are smart enough but you kinda have to mix people skills strategy skills funding skills investment skills and there's a whole bunch of skills enter come together so that you don't end up either being over indexing on the investment side and being asshole or Being being way too much of a cheerleader and not a daring conversations and on top of that you know to make things more complicated. We need to find someone who was okay. Running small funds who didn't want to maximize for management fees was okay with the arts is on approach. So that's a lot of constraints now so constraint. We put on ourselves. Let's try and see if we can find someone who we feel exceptional and not. What is the specific skill? Said that we're trying to go for because I think at the end of the day looking for five-legged sheep and I would much focus on what we feel is ace. Start our talents and by the way. You don't know that the beginning so you have to help people develop so you kinda gotta take chances versus a Econo- identified skill. Set you know tick the box type of recruitment approach. That may be doable into in the bay area. I don't know but I can tell you in Europe. That's just really hard to do. And when you say Harry is more likely to be in their demographic is is is that is there data or belief that the you know the next great founder of course there are older great founders but is more likely to be. Well I think the beauty of entrepreneurs right is like y'all entrepreneurs is they don't play by the rules at all and you know they don't know what they don't know and that's actually a quality very often most of the people who reinvents industries. Well a lot of them at least come from outside industry challenges school and build things differently so with back. We have a number of University dropouts and I don't mean this in the pure the'll you know romantic sense of the word but people were just like did not function well at university Were Kinda hacking Game hosting platforms. Sixteen and you're never fit within the system have quote unquote nobleman indication but are fantastic. And so you find people like that. The more likely to have original angles around the world should look tomorrow. Then you know a Third Time around founder. By the way up to cut a pretty good spit between third summer founders then people who have somewhat unlikely backgrounds. We've got to. We've done both but but I do think the future belong to the young and you know man. Don't come and ask even though I'm a creative person and I keep my mind open. I'm not going to be the one who tells you. Where teams are spending their time or exactly what services Orien- oriented architectures are going to go into next in years. I'm really good at that really quickly. But I'm so humble enough to recognize that you know I got. I gotTA play to my strengths right. So hurry hunts and different places and it's just a different pool of talent that he goes after and which I can connect to very well but whether I could source in that pool of tenancies more question totally I wanNA talk about the backer right now on a few few different wants to be. So what is a bit of overview of of what you see happening not just right now but But the future. I think we bounced back or don't bounce back How that's perhaps different than similar to two thousand eight or previous previous recessions? Sure so the quick the cliff notes on that are I think this is more similar to a one two three and possibly worse than a wait a wait for the tech sector was primarily liquidity crisis. His INO- nine. So which means you know the pool of capital from LP's dried up incredibly fast. And you really was. We had banks going into that crisis. I think it was thirty. Two Times over liberal or elaborate on on on their equity and so it was a massive massive consent of equity moving out of the system. And you know pretty hard into a nine but for tech startups. We had the IPHONE. The APP stores you massive rising connectivity. A whole new wave of of use cases being developed at speed and actually the tech sector while it suffered a little bit on the funding side was actually doing quite well underneath right. There was a very strong secular trend. That was pulling it forward and and I think that we we stop feeling. The pain is sometimes in late or nine. I mean it started to look really good and then we had this massive acceleration in price inflation from two thousand thirteen fourteen onwards two thousand to two thousand and three was more severe and kind of people. Forget that because it's like okay. So April two thousand. We had the paper of blow up in beginning of two thousand and one we were still Konig. Okay and then September eleventh happened and I get tough and then welcome when bust in March two and an older selects your older next-gen telecomms went bust about one hundred billion of telecoms market cap got sucked out of the system and then it got really hard. I mean I think Q. Three Oh two was probably the bottom but I remember being on the border company. Then we make twenty five million in revenue in two thousand and one and you know flats on the previous year and then fifteen in two thousand and two very good company right and catching what that does to a roughly two hundred person organization to SEE REVENUES. Drp like forty percent. It was absolutely awful and so you. That was long crossing of the desert with multiple cuts in the situation deteriorating. And what? I'm Connie concerned here. Is that you know. It's very hard for the human brain to really anticipate the depth of bad news. And even though you can see how to Domino's a falling you don't quite process because every day feels normal But I think that we got a few steps to go down before we can start thinking about going back up again so I speak this crisis to gradually deepen to an end for it to be to be to be long and painful again not to too negative. Because there's the secular wave of tax. That is still pushing us in the back. Which means you? We first attacked digital industries. You Know Music Media Cetera. Then we attacked food but in reality now you know. The tech adoption is becoming prevalent across every segment of the real economy and ending comments. Just structurally have no way to fight back. And now of course with the crisis not only do not have to fight back with her getting hammered and so are chaotic. Little organisms called startups. Do quite well and find opportunities so I think this kind of displacement towards Tech companies dominating multiple segments accelerate. The bad news that is. I think it's awful for jobs because people focus on it will be too much for. The first step is workflow today. We're seeing workflow tuition at speed in every industry and then you see kind of layer machine learning and ultimately vertical a on top of it and you know the white collar industry is going to get hit really hard etcetera so. They're they're big societal questions around it. But from a pure tech standpoint I think a lot of our companies are going to not only model. They way through but actually do quite well even if they're suffering but you laying the foundation for the future and kind of come out of this thing pretty strong. So I'm I'm not super negative just saying that people will have to be mentally for a a kind of map Arizona or even an ultra marathon with the problem being that. You don't know how long it's going to be. Yes.

Legacy Code Wisdom with Alexey Chernov

"Alexey Chernov is riven. Rows consultant at jet thoughts over the years he's hughes-built MVP's for several products and health fast-growing products to improve their legacy code scale up the remote team and achieve effective development process. He's a strong supporter. QUARTER OF TD and cope simplicity. It's great to have you on the podcast today. Thanks for inviting me. I'm very excited to be here today. Fabulous Alles Alexi. What is your develop origin story? Yeah I feel like my story is Rather boring because I think I always knew that I would like to be involved in the tech field preferably in software development and It started when I was studying in systems programming in university and my first programming languages for Bass Kelsey and Assembler and and it was the third year of my studies. When I started learning web development? I will miss my friends from university. I joined small company will be worked on Web applications and I was really excited about that and At some point I realized that it. I'd love to continue fulfilling myself in that field and this eventually led me to jet thoughts. Yes I've been working for the last five years and might default tech stack is Ruby on rails and Java script. Usually it's either react of you chess. I also have small experience with Brighton and once I've worked to with a dog night application and beside that's In my free time I enjoy trying new technologies in my bed projects just to discover some new things and keep myself up to date. What is your specific experience with Ruby on rails? Do you remember what version it was whenever we started using it yeah. I got acquainted with rails on one of my first jobs There was a requirement of moving the application from beach to ruby on rails stack. And if I remember correctly it was rails version too that we use there and my first impression was like low. He can build up an APP so fast rail and I think I can say that I fell in love with Ruby on rails down and Since then I've been working with rails on a regular basis makes it Seven years ear scenario up to this moment that's fantastic. We're lucky to have you in the community so as a new thing. I also WANNA start filling in listeners. As to how I'm getting guests on the podcast and the reason this happened is because I saw several open source starter. Kits specifically for view J S and rails being published by jet thoughts so I reached out to jet thoughts in spoke with Paul and he recommended bringing Alexi onto the podcasts. So Alexi can you tell me. Abou- How jet thoughts is and what you do. Yeah sure jets. Hawks is a weapon development company with more than ten years of experience in Ruby on rails consultant Out Text deck is Ruben. Real Jealous CRIPS and be used. React native a tip for Mobile Development We have developers who contributed to rail. SCO LANC on lower now other those that we use us on a daily basis Usually we work with small and mid sized start ups and We provide them with screened Senior developers to extend their team We prefer to have long term engagement with companies. So we don't. I usually take a look of project simultaneously and one one of those things that I really like about. Jet Thoughts is that one of its. Let's keep principles is to have a clear and transparent Development Process euless tried to keep the product owner in the loop with regular updates. It's and we also regularly ask him for feedback and Also jets had a huge expertise in setting up development flow in remote distributed teams. We help to help to startups to reach serious around. and to scale up the product development unsuccessfully and full for one of the lost ground projects we were working on We have increased the development team from five to twenty people and actually that was an interesting experience because we had to deal with a legacy application which had a lot of problems technical depths how how many developers total mortgage thoughts. It's about fifteen developers for now in Lviv Ukraine but the team. He's he's working remotely. So we do not have an office and we keep communicating remotely within. Also so let's dive into the topic of why you onto the show today. And that is legacy code. So I imagine a lot of us have different definitions. The legacy code is but I'd love to hear Yours Alexi. Yeah that's true that there are a lot of definitions of it. First of all I liked like to say that legacy code is not the goal that is old or outdated but rather that is written without testing strategy in mind the definition is rather blurry but essentially we can say that legacy code is the code without tests and at the same time that is very a heart test. That makes a lot of sense. So do you have any tips. Maybe specifically around Ruby on rails on how we can improve existing legacy code base. Yeah this can be held at work. It's hard but I think it's possible if done it originally going. Carefully step-by-step We can imagine that our -plication with legacy code is like a person that is sick Like a sick person. The application is still able to work but his much less effective than usual and like a human's body fighting with the disease. We need to do. Two main. Things stopped. this disease from spreading and start proper treatment and I hope Aw listeners forgive me for such a simplification of humans body functions so to stop the spreading of the legacy code wrote First of all we need to to admit that problem exists when it technology said and We need to talk to the team and ask everyone to stop up pushing new code without testing it I It also can be tempted to try and say to product owners that we need to stop feature development until we do that factor in but unfortunately this doesn't work Stakeholders and odds usually too happy about about the fact that development team is not working on features so to continue as treatment. We need it took actually tried to increase this coverage and simplify the process of Af- running tests And this step It's usually hard to add unit tests so I would start with writing system Tests because they're easier to add although there Hudson to support But I think it's still the best approach in the beginning and eventually when we're more confident bent and Dakota's more predictable We can switch to unit destin stats if we have problems in the existent test suite. We need to fix it. The most common problems is that are dependent on external factors factors. They can call. Some externally be is services In in other words they are interacting with the outside world Take that so we can use gasset's approach like VCR to save the results of such goals and reuse it pre played in the future richer and we can disable net connection with trump's web. Mock and fake our oh external requests And other thing is that can be time order related which is which is very nine and this should investigated fixed to an overall? I think the main goal is to have isolated reminds tests to have some some solid grounds in a form of stable master branch to continued development.

Director Destin Daniel Cretton Honors Lawyer Bryan Stevenson’s Work in ‘Just Mercy’

"Hello and welcome to another edition of they call spruce and unfiltered conversation about what's happening in Asia America. I feel you Jeff Yang and we're here with a very special guest a filmmaker crater of note storyteller of many things including a certain upcoming superhero movie. But we are not GonNa talk about that Superhero movie. We're GONNA be talking today about a real life superhero movie His film just mercy which is coming out from Warner brothers. In Limited release in December December twenty fifth. I believe and wide in January January tenth. It is the story of Bryan Stevenson. Anson the founder of the Equal Justice Initiative which is a critical nonprofit organizations that advocates for death. Row inmates providing them many cases a gasp of hope before the the actual kind of Mon execution occurs in the context of that Destin tells the story of how Brian Created this organization and some notable first cases that it that led to the organizations becoming a pillar of this particular movement so destin first of all welcome welcome to the show. It's great to be here so we want to start with a little bit with some of your background. I guess you're from Hawaii originally right. Yeah I grew up in Hawaii. And how did you actually embrace still making as a career. It was a it was along the long road to getting to the place where I actually admitted that I was embracing it as a career I I grew up. There is six kids in my fam family. We lived in a small town on Maui called Haiku Right next to a huge pineapple apple field. And we we we. My mom barely let us watch TV. So we're always outside kind of forced us to have to do creative things things and when my my grandma got her first. VHS camera that that she allowed me to borrow That that became kind of the thing that that I would do to pass. The time was make little commercials and short films with my five siblings things as my actors and so from an early age. I knew that I loved it. Loved the process And and so it was a hobby of mine All the way through college. I didn't I didn't go to film school. I got a degree in communications. And it wasn't like 'til my senior year that I did my first short film and then just kept doing short films for fun for about ten years. And eventually it snowballed Walden started to turn into something that I made money out. The short shorts got less short so it was that short film. The one that actually Connected with Brie Larson or was that that I short film without later one short term twelve was was was was a short. It was actually my eighth short film Every other show had been rejected from sundown and short-term twelve is the first time that but I got the call from Sundance saying that we're we got in and then The stars aligned and ended up winning the jury prize at Sundance Site Year And that that was like a big first stepping stone into being able to do this as a job. The film that got the feature that got everyone sort of noticed that. Notice you in a lot of people's minds was was the future for short-term twelve and I look really revisit just looked at the the credits for that film and I was like stunned to see all these young actors. There's who are now like huge stars sort of planning their seeds there. I was wondering like when you look back at that. Like what is your impression of their careers. Your career now like looking looking at all that it seeing like wow. I really had an eye for talent. I don't really see see it that way I I just see as Wow it's so cool to see my friends being doing what they love. And being so successful at it I Yeah I mean I feel really really kind of grateful to that Our our little group has all kind of gone on to do such extraordinary things. It's it's really cool so One of the screwing things. The one we're going to talk about today is is of course this film just mercy and we saw it like I mentioned to you before stories started taping last night at the screening. I was so moved that I actually donated to equal justice initiative before I left the theater I I was struck by how necessary the film was the the story was telling and the work of equal justice initiative in an era where feels increasingly like people of Color immigrants Poor people live under a different system. Like like a different set of laws than people who have more and who have the power to and resources to fight fight back. What what it drew you to the story initially? And how did you actually connect with it. Thank you for donating TJ. Let's a a- and and your reaction is really what we hope. This movie does is introduce people to the amazing work that Brian has has been consistently doing back when you wasn't a hot topic when it was actually it almost looked down upon to to be doing the work that he's doing It's it's the way that the Brian puts it as the our our system. Treats you better if you are rich and guilty than if you are poor innocent And and that is just Incredibly sad but the thing about Brian that that was so so inspiring to be around was that he is not this cynical kind of depressed guy walking around doing this this this works. That is so difficult. He actually has a bounce to his step he has so much energie And and he has so much hope He he actually believes that. You can't do the type of work that he does without hope because hope is the things that allows you to have vision for something that you cannot see and every project that he he embarks on feels impossible at the moment that he's starting But it's the the hope that that allows him to to zinc that. This could change that. There is a way to to change the hearts and minds of the people behind a broken system And and as as much as you know as much as this movie was may taking place in the late eighties early nineties And there there are a lot of things especially recently that that has have even gone backwards And there's a ton of work and and to be done I also Brian Stevenson's work and his life has proven that one person can really make a difference in the difference. That he has made is pretty incredible. I think the hope speak of definitely shines through in the film and it's a light light in serve the most bleakest services you know air hope seems to be short supply in and this really gross systemic abuse injustice and it would make anybody the most cynical I think but the thing about is like you're talking about a real person and so it's not just a fictional movie like superhero or real person right. I wonder what kind of burdens you felt. If at all I mean about representing his story about the writ you know the real life person You know you're dealing with real facts. Real real real personality. I mean what kind of things that you go through in making the film that you kind of pressure to put yourself A lot of threats a a lot. I it's rare as a filmmaker to be able to to tell a story about a person who is Still as active right now in the work that that he does as he was thirty years ago. We're not we're not telling a bio pic of someone who it has passed away or who were not just trying to you know Glamorize somebody's life just to just so you have the information Where where telling a story that you can actually leave the theater and donate to this organization or we're going volunteer somewhere or go and listen to Bryan? Stevenson speak He the day before he came and visited us on say he was. He was arguing in front of the Supreme Court He's he has actively he's actively doing words that he speaks and his words are incredibly powerful because he backs it up with his life and I just just never met a A man or or or woman who has more Dedicated to to to just making the world more fairer place for the most vulnerable people in our society. So I mean I I had a lot of pressure put on myself to not screw it up Because anytime around Bryan Stevenson I just feel so unworthy but he he's very inspiring person to be around.

Destin Daniel Cretton to Direct Asian-American Superhero Movie Based on Shang-Chi Character for Marvel Studios

"News broke on the Hollywood reporter that destined. Daniel Cretin has signed on to direct Marvel's Shanxi movie. Which will Mark the studios very first superhero film with an Asian lead? So word of this project for surface back in September along with the news that marvel was going to fasttrack it, and they also tapped at that point writers penned the screenplay at that time. It was reported that marvel was looking towards Black Panther a little bit of a guide and a model just in terms of hiring Asian or or an Asian American director to helm this one other directors that were in the running included Justin tipping, Alan Yang and Deborah Chow. But of course, Cretin is the one that landed this gig. So from this point on marvel is looking to assemble a largely Asian American and Asian cast for the film. So hopefully, we get a lot more news on this very soon. But right now focusing on the director, Amy rose, what do you think? About destined getting this gig. I think it's a great choice short-term twelve most people didn't really know about Brielle arson before the room, but this was the little gem, and there's kind of something around the internet floating around that like this was like the magic well short term twelve because everyone who was in this movie, this has been a launch pad for a lot of success, and it's just such a talented cast, and he's an amazing director. And like it's about time. I feel like a rook a broken record talking about representation being so important in media. But it really is. And you know, I'm finally pursuing my dream of directing. But I didn't have a lot of role models growing up and that right there because there were probably ten I could count on my fingers female directors. And it's the same thing with having an all Asian cast Asian director with this property who's going to know the property better. So think it's a great choice. He has a lot of talent. And I'm glad that marvel and Holywood is still slow to change. But I'm glad that they are finally showing a little bit more

For Georgia Farmer, The Trade Tariffs Are Personal

"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from Comcast business having the nation's largest gig speed network was just the start. Now, they're providing gig fueled apps and solutions that exceed expectations and help businesses perform Comcast business beyond fast, the ongoing trade dispute between the US and China is clearly having an economic economic impact on both countries. But tariffs can also affect people on an individual level. Nowhere is that more apparent than in America's agricultural communities. Stacey van expense and Cardiff Garcia hosts of the podcast, the indicator from planet. Money spoke with one farmer whose livelihood is now on the frontlines of a trade war, David Reid farms, more than two thousand acres of peanuts and cotton here in Pinehurst, Georgia and his crop started coming in last year. He says it was glorious. Oh, yeah. We had this crop. We ever had in a few years. And then starting over the summer a couple of things happened. I a trade war broke out the US impose tariffs on Chinese goods and China retaliated with import taxes of its own among the US goods, it China started taxing were peanut butter and cotton, basically, everything they grow in this part of Georgia. Then a couple of months later this happened. Hi there. I'm Brooke Baldwin live here in Destin, Florida where we are covering the official landfall of hurricane Michael feel Ross. Sorry. I walked any. Any? Category with in prisons ethic. David lost about a third of his cotton crop and a couple of fields of peanuts to the peanuts grand there. That's what was last left after the storm peanuts grow underground like potatoes. And this field has peanuts all over the dirt. David picked a couple of. But they were rotten from all the water from the storm show was kind of soft Tim apart in his hands. See that was a good peanut when it came to just some we didn't get picked at the storm. He the peanuts and cotton that did survive walk straight out of a storm and into a trade war, China's peanut butter and cotton orders from the US collapsed overnight and the price that David was getting for his peanuts and cotton both fell by about thirty percent. And what had been shaping up to be one of the best years in David's entire farming career turned into one of the worst years Pete ever seen. You know, we we planned to make a lot of money this year, but lower see it. But hopefully, we don't break even break. Even and David says, he is one of the lucky ones, there's some foam foams just worried, you know, I've heard him help in say, I don't know if I most of I've this or not, you know, it's heartbreaking David says that the economic effects of the storm and the tariffs haven't just hit the farmers. They've hit the whole area is hurting a whole community and equipment dealer in the guy down. Treat the hardware store in everybody suffers in spite of everything though, David actually supports the terrace at that. Well, that's not good for the former now. But I think it's the right thing to do, you know, and I think President Trump doesn't right? Thank in mafia union. I think he did a good thing. David thinks the macro economic issues between the US and China are important enough that the sacrifice feels worth it to him. Now, the government is providing millions of dollars in aid to cotton farmers and supplementing a lot of the peanut losses. It doesn't make up for everything doesn't make up for all the losses. But David says he is not going to switch to another crop. Neither is anybody. He knows they're going to continue growing cotton. And peanuts just like always. Why is that is Sydney blood? You know, what they've always done. Stacey Vanik Smith Cardiff Garcia NPR news.
