'The Devil's Triangle' Author Mark Judge Talks Threats of Extortion
"This is tough stuff. I mean, the idea, you know, lying, we know is wrong. Sexual assault. We know is wrong. Accusing someone of sexual assault, wow, that's huge. You destroy lives that way. So you Eric, excuse me for interrupting, but extortion is wrong. People were trying to extort me and Leland Kaiser. I was getting phone calls from a number in California, and I think we all know who it was. Trying to extort me and Leland Kaiser's friends from high school were saying, she's a stumbling block. Somebody has to give her a talking to and we better do something and we better threaten her because she's had an addiction issue in her past to back blasey Ford or else. So I didn't mean to interrupt her, but that's exciting. Well, first of all, interrupt. I'm the only one that's, as my audience knows, I'm the one doing all the interrupting. It's hard for me to shut up because I want to be clear, but you're not interrupting. This is, I want to hear you. But let me ask you when you say you think we all know who it was in California who's trying to extort Leland Kaiser or you. What do you mean? I don't know who we're talking about. Remember avenatti? Michael avenatti. The creepy. Now I can't prove that. All I know is I got a call on my birthday September 24th, very threatening saying you like to F with people. I like to F with people too. You better call me back. I told the FBI. The FBI has the part of the reason I'm going to interrupt forever is because I forgot, you know, I read your book. I read every word of it, but I'm forgetting stuff, but obviously now I'm being reminded. So you believe it was Michael avenatti. Anybody familiar if they read your book, and again, the book is called the devil's triangle. But if they read your book, or they know the story, they understand how involved he was and the players that were involved. But what you're telling me, Mark, what are you telling my audience is that you are basically threatened that you better play ball or we're coming after you. This

"So now here comes Mike Pence. Trump's vice president, calling on Trump to apologize for the dinner. President Trump was wrong to give a white nationalist an anti semite and a Holocaust denier acceded to table. And I think he should apologize for it. And he should denounce those individuals in their that's on news nation with Leland vitter yesterday. Now, I don't know what Mike Pence is endgame is here. I guess he wants to run for president.

Mike Pence is not going to be the Republican nominee for president in 2024.

How Soon Will the NDAA Pass
"Congressman Mike Gallagher is from Wisconsin. And I'm going to blame the state of Wisconsin for the fact that the national defense authorization act has not yet come through conference and been passed because he's on the armed services committee. Now he's not a ranking member of even a subcommittee because the Republicans don't run the house. So it's not really fair to blame them, but I like to blame them anyway because of the packers fan. Congressman Gallagher, where is our NDAA? Well, it's passed the House to pass the house last week. So the next step is for we just got the Senate text because the Senate has a closed committee process. So the next step is for them to pass it for us to conference it. And then I would expect it to come to the floor after the August recess sometimes. So obviously these process doesn't move as fast as we'd like, but it is far better than the appropriations process, which oftentimes moves not at all. And we're left with a continuing resolution and that's what worries me about this. I think we could find ourselves in a situation where we don't pass the size of preparations Bill. We're in some sort of continuing resolution world. And that's obviously a very bad for the military. They can't invest in new programs when you factor in inflation. It's a particularly big cut to the military. So I've long thought that the disconnect between the authorization process and the appropriations process makes no sense and should be addressed potentially with a combination of the committees. But we are where we are. So the house has done its work. We need the Senate to do theirs and then hopefully we will have a productive conference in the Senate screw up some of our good work.

I want to know what your network and what you did with this story because news nation now is a straight up newscast. It's just the news. And this is a big story that's not really been covered. What did you do with the Indiana mall shooting? We thought it was really an incredible story. First of all, his heroics, we've now learned, or something out of a movie, even Hollywood wouldn't script a 22 year old with his girlfriend. Neutralizing a guy with an AR in 15 seconds. Remarkable, just on its face. But more importantly, in a time when there is so much debate over active shooters. And so much debate over how to stop them undoubtedly stopping them is a good thing. So much debate over weapons in America, whether people should be able to carry them or not and where they should carry them. The fact that somebody in a constitutional carry state neutralized and active shooter is real news.

Indoor Mask Mandate Returns for San Diego School District
"I'm gonna start with the San Diego unified school district because I can not believe I really can not believe that they return to an indoor mask mandate in America's finest city this week. But I looked it up, it's not trolling. Originally I was sent a pointer to the school board president Sharon whitehurst Payne on a local station kui saying this, cut number 17. Indoors in school, are there any other options for them? For the fall, there are some options they can go to our school that's online. They can opt not to return to the regular school, but to go to the school where they don't have to go to school at all other than via Zoom. And that's the easiest way for folks to do this. What if they were already enrolled in the summer school and now they get this mask mandate and they're not comfortable with wearing a mask. They really should wear the mask. And it's not comfortable. What should they do? They should just let make it known that they don't feel comfortable at that point, just not return.

How Republicans Could Lose the Missouri Senate Seat
"Eric Erickson. Undermine big radio guy on news nation with our pal Leland last night, cut number 18. Eric, because you just have such a unique understanding of Republican politics, I want to get you on this. The Senate race in Missouri largely seen as a primary race between the attorney general there and the former governor there who had resigned in disgrace. His name's Eric brightons. Hugh Hewitt about his prominent of a Republican radio host as there is, president company excluded talk to president Trump earlier today about Brighton's take a listen. It's an endorse Eric greitens. That's a nightmare, mister president. We'll lose that seat. But that's Hugh Hewitt's opinion, not yours. Well, that's an interesting opinion. That's true. He's right now leading by quite a bit. I know, but we'll lose the seat. We will lose this. Okay. No people feel that. The president doesn't seem convinced, but it brings up this issue. How worried should Republicans be when they've got these great opportunities like the Latino poll that president Trump comes in and endorses primary candidates who have no chance of winning in the general? There's real worry. You've got Eric Schmidt near Greg and the battle of lyrics commented on now by Eric. And Schmidt is the attorney general. He's doing fairly well in the polls. Great and does well with the base because he's perceived to be victimized. He was hounded out of office while he was governor. But that's a problem because he Missouri does have a very independent minded base of voters headed into the general election. Eric is right. Look, I got nothing against right and except he melted down on this show and I asked him very straightforward questions. Eric crichton was about to be impeached because of his treatment of a woman in his basement who he found gag and according to her engagement unconscious intimate activity. He was wrongly prosecuted, I believe, by a craze left wing democratic prosecutor in St. Louis. But he just it's a disaster in a campaign. I know this stuff. I've been doing this a lot longer than almost anyone. If brightens at the nominee, in fact, Democrats will try and get right into be the nominee. I don't know who's gonna win. They're about 700 people on that. Eric Schmidt is tied with Eric greitens right now in the most reputable poll, but Billy long might get Donald Trump's endorsement. There are a couple other Congress people who are running. I'm just telling you Eric crichton's take a seat off the table. Democrats are going to control the Senate. They control the Senate. They can put anyone they want on the Supreme Court.

Are you covering it closely? Everything we possibly can and it's fascinating and you brought this up is just yesterday we were talking about coming to Virginia to do the show in Virginia before election night and then on election night because it is so critical and you think about what's happening in Virginia, which was a Biden plus ten state and now is a toss up essentially between young and Terry mcauliffe and you have to turn the call off admitting what a problem Joe Biden's agenda is for him in Virginia. And then you think about what happened in 2009 when you had then president Obama, vice President Biden, and you had a Republican win the Virginia governor's race. What that sort of foreshadowed for the midterms I had a guy on, you know very well here, which is Larry sabado from the Virginia center of politics.

"Your credential foreign correspondent leland. And i want to dial in on the fifteen thousand americans stranded in kabul and throughout the country. What would you be doing right now. If any of these foreign deployments the united states had bugged out without notice and left you catastrophically high and dry. What would you actually do. Well depends on where you are in afghanistan because the taliban controls everything minus a couple of hundred yards around the airport and what. We're hearing so much from afghanistan. Right now is that it's all well and good that the us controls the airport but a lot of the planes are leaving half full or a third full because people can't get into kabul and then into the airport and you think about afghanistan being the size of texas. So yes if you were at one of the foreign news bureaus inside kabul and you were able to get the airport. You get to the airport and you get out. Though that there's a number of other reporters everything who believe that they have ways to get to the airport and get out and or reporting from inside the perimeter if you will but still able to report if you're in the countryside of afghanistan in one of these fifteen thousand americans who's who's out there whether you are mich- arear contractor or whatever you were you a really in harm's way in a effectively the only thing protecting six thousand american soldiers on the ground and kabul the fifteen thousand americans around afghanistan is the goodwill of the taliban and those are those are some lousy people to have to rely on

And where do you think it could be likely to go. Under the biden administration. I think i think a lot less interesting topic than most people think. For the simple reason that while it has become a household name. So if you if you watch that back and forth between senators ted cruz and And in the new commerce secretary about whether while he's going to this is political theater while way is not being taken off the entity list. It would kill biden interns from the political Politically speaking it's just too big name. So while he's not going off the list. What's interesting is that. The biden administration will have the ability because the trump administration tried to throw all pasta against the wall to try to make tweaks to this system and they need to be very smart tweaks to make this a much more effective. Crackdown chinese tech or they can play with the various lists and take subsidiaries often affiliates off and and and companies like smick china's china's founded in a core chip. Foundry making more dovish policy. So what i think's interesting is for all the focus on wa wa while way is now a political issue in and of its own so the bite administrators can have very little lee way how to operate with while way but the company the company's the portent tech companies under hallway. Those are not known to the average joe on the street. They're not even known to the average china-watcher so there will have a lot of ability to make these lists more hard hitting these restrictions and export controls more heart-hitting or to go the other action. Which is why. I think some of the officials. They're going to be appointed in the next couple of months in the commerce department. These are really important positions in terms of understanding where china's policies going over the next two years So leland we are. We're almost to the forty minute mark.

Sure so he'll always a market network where companies can connect directly with scientists and startups for research collaborations. It works a little bit. Like lincoln recruiting solutions only instead of companies posting jobs. They are posting. Rfp's around their research. Interests and scientists are submitting proposals. That's definitely not the original idea for the business The original concept actually was a crowd funding for medical research. We would work with tech. Transfer offices at universities identified promising discoveries. And then try to connect them with donors who could fund de risking projects and scale. What they call the valley of death in drug development so that original concept was really challenging but kind of clued into this even bigger opportunity and bigger challenges challenge. That's a company or scientists don't just need funding of course fundings helpful. They really need the resources. And the expertise of industry. And meanwhile i i saw the companies were doing more and more looking more and more externally at scientists and startups four collaborations. Because they were realizing they weren't as expert or as as effective at the early stage discovery research they were really better at the later stage commercialization stages up but the way that those two parties were connecting was completely archaic. So to me it reminded me of recruiting hell recruiting worked in the ninety s or before the internet where you would go to career fairs and email. Gdf surrounds offer those. Remember those days before you had monster and lincoln and it seemed like as outsider that this was an obvious marketplace network solution so that's how pivoted and we launched in january twenty twenty We work with bare pepsi Meeting other companies.

"Lemonade out of lemon and Lots of good things have happened with the book and the youtube channel. And it's the first time in my entire career where i recorded from home. I've never had a home situation before. I would usually look at it if somebody wanted to send me files to do. Some overdubbed swarm. I would look at that as an opportunity for social time. So i'd call for a friend of mine who had a home studio in. I'd say about me come over. Let's put based on us and go have lunch kind of thing but nowadays we that really doesn't exist. We're still pretty much locked down. So i ended up getting a interface for home and then Plugged into garage band. And i've had people like every couple of days sending me a track to work conference. I just finished a couple songs. Ian pace the drummer from deep purple and one of the singers with phil collins back on the two thousand four tour has been working as an actress and she's decided to go back and start doing her musical ventures again to connie jackson and they just sent me a song yesterday and it just put base on it today and shipped it off.

That's available and it's like super high quality. Printing and limited editions signed numbered. I wanted to talk about that. Because while i was doing my research on you came cross. That saw the ball. Can i saw the art and that really took me back because it is incredible work semester. Like you coulda had an entire career just as your artists in the music room. But you're clearly artists on campus as well. It's fucking crazy. And that's where. I was headed when i met james taylor. I was in college. I was a science and art co majors. I was looking at maybe becoming a medical illustrator or something like that and the next thing i knew i meet this guy at our band rehearsal and i do one gig with him in my life completely changed overnight so but i loved large.

You're living in this thing so to have a perspective of single would if that happened. Had this never happened. That would just been a natural flow and you would have never thought about you know what other things could have happened or could have gone with that and know and maybe during the course of doing that something else would have come along. You just never know but you just have to be open this news. Just go look at whatever whatever happens you just try to make the most of it in some things. Don't work out. i mean. I've had lots of failure in my life and lots of things that that i wish hadn't happened but everybody doesn't mean you wouldn't have been living your life if everything was perfect rice debt. I feel. I feel very blessed and fortunate that i've had the career i've had in the relationships that i've had over all these years and that Knock on wood still going on for sure.

"Button i mean. I'm not. I'm i will leave my playlist on shuffle. But i don't ever go through an album on shovel. And i learned that. I think it was twenty seven. I don't remember exactly. It was caesar's album finding beauty in negative spaces. That i listen to from front back and probably thousand is like i just i loved it and from then on i always listen from beginning to end because i honestly i was totally dom to the idea that they were actually put any particular order aside from when i like an intro or like the slight like thirty seconds buildup May be too like the the main saw. And so i don't know it definitely. It does doesn't make them bigger deeper connection between the listener in the musicians in. I love that. I applaud that. And yeah i i like the. I personally don't have a vinyl record. I have a record no nothing to play with. I have an old elvis record But yeah i i. I don't know i i never really got into an eat but even if even if you ended up with like a cd of like a classic album and and a cd is laid out in the order that the album was laid out in then you can still have that experience. You won't have the ending side a in flipping the record over and going through the whole process. But there's so many records. Said if i listen to it on shuffle lose my mind because it's so ingrained into me with the next track is going to be all that and all of a sudden if it was something else i would find it. A little distressing. It's such a part of my dna as to how this album flows so It said it's a it's just we own one of these things that everybody approaches all of this differently and none of it's right none of it's wrong and that's the thing i love about the arts is they're completely subjective and you you can be sitting there in an art museum in one person looking at a painting going. This thing makes me want to throw up it sick and the person nixon. There's having one of the most emotional response they've ever had and they're both right. Yeah i uni of it. As many people said the f. one funds beauty detriment some of them. It's just not for them. That's fine but there's other art that is isn't for that person. Yeah so people are too complex. You pursue what you want. That makes you happy so not to put you on the spot. But what do you think would be the best laid story and novel night youth. You listen to help me gun either. Worked on or just any that you. You'd have to listen to adjust. There's so many great records out there. I mean Back in the highlights. Steve winwood ze records. One of the most beautifully crafted albums is really something one of the best singles. They still ever heard. My life was joe. Cocker little help from my friends is search. A amazing piece of production and certainly all the mid period beatles. Up through sergeant. Pepper's is just absolutely remarkable work But there's so many wonderful albums out there. That i have that i didn't work on and others that i that i was really fortunate enough to be a part of that That just bring me a whole lot of joy. When i when i listen to them and also somebody comes on. I'm listening. i'm also listening. Because there are so many records that friends of mine who played on and to hear them at the top of their game. You know you just kind of go. Man jeff carl in also on the greatest drummers ever and he died he was signing. Jeff was thirty nine when he passed away. When i worked with tommy bolin doing Spectrum with billy cobham which people still talk about to the and we cut that element seventy three and tommy was probably still one of the greatest guitar player sits ever lived and he was gone at. I think twenty eight so they all have different meanings to me as as i listened to them and And for me kind of the thing like for for me with the youth channel. There's so many of these records steps literally. I can close my eyes. And i can be back in the studio in remembering what it was like making that record and the other players that were on it in the artists and kind of the emotional thing that was going on in the studio at that time. And it's it's a pretty neat opportunity to to visit. It's almost like a little bit of an out of body. Experience gathered awesome super bowl. Tommy got anything. No i was just gonna say the reason. I find that question to interesting is because there is that huge disconnect weather. We're guilty of it or not conscious of it. Because i remember when i got my turntable. My wife really liked this specific song on this album saying hey can you just start up that song. And i'm like i mean i could deliberately try to have to look at the record. Two zero the little blanks pacers. I could try to do it. But now when i made the commitment to listen to an album. It's like you said it's that commitment. You are gonna sit down. You're gonna dust it off at the static off now help all these tools to kind of make it last as long as i can. I have it in this. Leave to make insurance brazilian. Sit down and actually behind me in this room. There's not is just a chair and then the speakers that's it. That's all there is so i can sit on that chair. Look at the album's sometimes in the sleeve. They little messages. And i know like you said it wasn't until the beatles really spoke to me. And then i got really into the beatles and i have to sit and think do i actually really love the beatles or my actually falling in love with music and it was a little bit of both because i did so much research on them and they said the past. Lp's used to honestly kinda they would just put a couple of good singles and then a couple of fillers to fill up the album and then they would throw it out the publisher and it wasn't really until the beatles did sergeant papper when they had that that storyline. That pro elise years here goes right into ringo singing in things and you're just like whoa ages. Earning exactly just reinvented. The game then was getting so into this. Whoa hold on. Because i'm a first generation korean. I didn't grow up with a lot of western music. But it wasn't until that moment as embarrassingly enough. I'm twenty eight. It wasn't until. I was twenty eight when i was. Music isn't just something i put on the forget my problems and just towards the united states. They're telling stories a movie. It's a commitment. And that's why when i got angered year coming in i was like the univer sending me a message saying music is that of platform and to kind of change it up right now once again we love putting you on the spot grill and yet we good at one thing i wanted to ask is right now. Whichever i know you have your job is essentially like you said having that big ear listening to try to adapt with the times on your playlist right now. What are some new things that you've been listening to You would not be able to recommend. But you're saying oh. This is kind of cool things. That i've been listening to. That could be on my radar. Because i'm always someone that likes to try to be as open minded as you are. Maybe in a polka music isn't for me. But i can appreciate it so my thought is wonder some new things you might have run into saying. Hey this is my playlist. I'll listen to this again as of right now. This has been such an intense year of work that. I don't have a playlist this here. I've just been every day so occupied that. I've really have not had a lot of time. And plus there's no work going on in terms of studio worker. I am sorry to say that you know one of the problems also is when i'm listening to music a lot of times you hear the music and when i was young when they would play songs on the radio they would tell you who the hell it was where there's so many times now were equally after it's hard to find out who you just heard 'cause they're going to play a ton of songs and they're not necessarily going to tell you who it was and i'm not ready to grab my phone and hold it up and try to see if it can you tell me who that track is There's i mean. I hear stuff all the time like when i'm driving around. That are really enjoy. Because i listen to a lot of different series channels sirius. Xm when i'm out driving. But i've really. It's hard for me to keep track of who. I'm really liking in that stat. That i find is sort of a little my fault in a little technology's fault for the fact that they're not presenting these in a way that makes you encouraged to go look further into that artist because off playing somebody else enters. A whole bunch of kind of dribble talk going on in between that really is meaningless. That's a shame to here because there's a few stations here in orlando that i know would display a like artist and song information on.

"Was gonna say. I can try and see if i can get you to make a mindless morning show theme song and you can try to wrap your head around that. Because that'll be hard. I would assume started. Bowie would have done one for you by now or somebody like the cloud just because we have the all we we'll get. We'll talk to now but one thing that you actually brought up with and it's really interesting from a artists perspective. I have very guilty if you will in. That millennial age where i grew up in the digital age. Of course i had. Cd's and things. But i was not a part of the whole. Let's get lp. Let's get a vinyl Behind me. I recently got into the hobby vinyl behind me a very happy of it but it wasn't until i had a vinyl the hard copy hand where i thought. Wait a second. This album is telling me a story. The artist's deliberately picked up order to tell story whereas it was very humbling for me. Because i grew up out. Here's my favorite playlist of my favorite songs of this ban and put it on shuffle. And i'll play whatever whereas now i. It's funny because now. When i listened to music in my head i know what the next august boosted the enamel because they listened to a back-and-forth so now when i have no no even though i might listen to this i have to go back. I have to go back to. What's in the order. So my question is is there actually deliberate thought that the artist puts kind of tell the story. And how do you think the impact of the digital age where they say you know. Oh let me put guns and roses. Okay let's play us. We call to mind. Let's play this and let's play that we're like no no no. There's an album. So how do you think that kind of changed the industry or influenced it will. That's what i miss though is a very purposeful thing that went in to creating. Lp's for stuff you had two sides and you would number one. How do i wanna start side. And how do i wanna inside a emotionally in and it became almost like a japanese tea ceremony. It's a very formal thing to have a record. You get the record out any kind of dust it off you make sure. There's no lint on the needle and you set it down in the needle goes down and it becomes a very emotional and then while it's going on you can read liner notes and and have actual physical artwork in your hand We used to a lot of times would go to the mastering places after an album wisconsin. And you'd be sitting there and that's where they would figure out the amount of time between each cut and things like that you would. You have worked out your order you play. You know you work on it. You put it on tape and played it in a whole bunch of different orders to see what really laid the best but i remember sonny has said he nearly here that first song and hear that last night diana and we'd sit there and we go. That's where the next track would start because it was the right. Sometimes you want them but it up real close and other times you wanna have a little time between the to let people kind of settle into it so it was a very methodical thought out process to to put together a vinyl record and it was so many times from top to end and and then once it went digital. And like you said you know people shuffle random you know. Maybe they did it even when they were having to pick up like a full cd and pay for it rather than just buying track. They might listen to it and only played over and over on the whole thing because they just didn't care about the other songs so suddenly the the purposefulness of really putting together a methodically thought out album suddenly was kind of out the window now. It's been real interesting so many projects i've worked on now they're pressing vinyl again. It's become this entire subculture of people that are out getting turntables using them for something other than scratching you know and and it's it's fantastic to discover that and also the sonics of a record are really you know something really special. Where if you're just listening to mp threes through earbuds. You're hearing this much. Where with a record. You could be hearing this much if you get a decent Good turntable and a good amp in some good speakers man. It's an emotional experience to listen to music. That way and and i feel you know. I was lucky that most of my life. That was pretty much. How i i knew music. I'd go into studios with these fantastic. You know just a sound of big room. Breathing air is like. There's nothing like it but i also i also had kind of personal mantra through through my career and it was. Oh and i've said it a million times but it was don't become an old fart guy that sitting in they're talking about we'll men in my day when we had a and you suddenly just sound like you're out of touch with things and so i never really talk about that stuff but if i'm working with like a young ban by because i still work with people in their twenty s and and if they start to say what was it like then. I'm really happy to sit down with them because they've opened the door. But i don't wanna be grandpa sitting there talking about the good old days because that's kind of denigrating the time they're living in and you shouldn't do that because each time has its own value and it's hard to explain things to people who have never experienced it have no reference point. I mean when you're talking to people that have never heard great analog recording. Then why the hell talk to him about it. If they have no idea what you're talking about they don't know the difference of sonics in what it can be like. So i try to try to walk a kind of a comfortable line between understanding the history of what's going on in how it all comes together and living in now in tomorrow. I gotta say time that was. That was a great question. Because honestly i didn't think of like the disconnect that that abbas with just a simple.

"I can. I can find value in all of it. I may not be the most proficient person in specific genres. I've listened to everything enough time. Like if if i get called and they want to do some reggae. I can play reggae. But i'm not playing reggae sly and robbie did who who basically wrote the book about it you know i can play tower power kind of music but it's not david garibaldi and rocco prestia so you become kind of a jack of all trades through the industry. If you're going to be a studio player. And you're not i eat. I've never found myself talking down on a certain style. Um some may not be my comfort zone. But if i get called for something and i say yes i owe it to the client into the artist to do the best job i possibly can so i come in prepared to know what's going on with if i'm looking at i'm really a rock and roll guy at heart hardcore moon in the sixties totally hendrix in cream and ten years after an all all the kind of bands that came out of that ilk the if for me that's a real joyous kind of music to play. Just go up there and kick some serious butt and through the seventies. My life turned upside down. Basically because when i met james taylor i was hard rock band and the next thing. I know i get hard to play with. James and i'm like on the antithesis of that suddenly with the singer songwriter movement. And that's where. I got a reputation and i was had to beg people to let me play on rock and roll records because they will let you play that real sensitive stuff. I can't i can play. That can also let me come in and do this stuff to during that period was really exciting because it was so many artists being signed with the advent of james and i think i have to one of the people i have to totally credit. My success to is peter asher who was part of the english group. Peter and gordon back in the sixties and peter produced an engineer m produced managed. James taylor in the beginning and he signed james to his to his apple records. Steel but peter insisted on james's record that our names appear on the back of the albums. Where the wrecking crew musicians of the last fifty through the sixties had no recognition so when people are listening to records and listening to frank sinatra and the mamas and papas the association in all these groups did not know it was the same musicians playing on every record but having our names on the album with the advent of that new direction of music when an artist would get signed a times they with look at like james taylor record because chains became kind of the benchmark for this new direction and they look at that will lee sklar and russ kunkel and danny coach marin craig derby's guts well if it works for james. Let's call him for our thing. And the next thing you know we were working our asses off. We went from driving top fuel dragsters. We went from like zero to one hundred one second. There was no build up because my experience in the studio b fewer before i became a first call studio musician was like a couple of demo records. In all of a sudden we went like right into the fire with but we also had the goods. We had the experience and stuff. I spent my early years as a classical pianist. So when i got in the studio. And i would get to do something where it required reading. I was already a proficient reader. So that was not an issue for me but as time went on and we when we went through. You know. I've done every format of cutting direct to disc direct to two track cutting you know. Lp's then you know you know gaps. You know how you know when when it all kind of got different win. Cd's came up when when when things turned digital from analog because during the the analog period of records. If i were to somebody's house and they had sergeant pepper. i'd go. oh man. I gotta get that elman. I go to the record store and buy my copy of it where once it got to the point where it was digitized. One person could buy one. If somebody had the money and they bought a duplicator they could just burn as many sees as they wanted to all of a sudden the fact that you your job as a monetary job kinda went out the crapper with this because people were just going at it nowadays. There's been now multiple that feel downloading for freeze is okay. You know so even if you were charging five dollars for a dvd. Why would anybody pay five bucks. If they can get it for free kind of thing so the business the business side of it is it really serious troubles but in terms of styles that went through disco and stuff in the eighties. I jumped into that. I played on. It's raining men in and all kinds of stuff and be played on lots of disco records In in the ninety six got you know grunge and in. I get called a play on stuff like that. So it's been it's been a great run. I don't look at any at any style. Is like degrading or it's beneath me or anything. I'm a professional musician. And if i get called. I go on and do the best job i possibly can and try to make the the most of anything now if i'm looking at my very favorites and the stuff. That isn't my favorite. Of course there's going to be bell curves and all that stuff. I mean i think it would be. It would be something really wrong with you. If you thought everything was perfect and wonderful you'd be you'd be more of an android at that point. But but i don't look at anything as denigrating like that. I think there's something to be gleaned throughout every style and And i just i. I enjoy getting called for those things i can look at. There's certain things i can get called for. That could do in my sleep. I wouldn't but i mean. I know him so well. And there's other times they get called for something that requires wrapping your head around it a little bit differently so i look at it as a personal challenge and it's fun to still have challenges after all these years. I don't know everything i know. I know this much. And there's this much to know. So i just keep looking for new opportunities to expand my horizons and shared john. O'brien.

While and talk to france we all have this isolation now and to have an area where people can gather again even if it is virtual is pretty cool. I mean it would be really great if there was some way to have it be like a zoom but it would be chaotic to happen but but as as things scroll by and i see people's names me i'm recognizing most of the people are so many return people and it has become like a family where everybody's concerned about everybody else's well being what are they up to and It's a it's unique but it's again.

Where i'm visiting you know. So much of the material. I've played on over the years and telling stories about the other musicians and artists and studios and stuff.

Really the most exhilarating sing. I can imagine and so it it. It keeps me incredibly motivated. Eat moving forward because it is the thing that brings me such incredible joy sitting and thinking about records. I've played on and stuff really. I mean it. that's that exists. That's there and you know people come up to me all the time and talk about things like that night nets. It's been a great run. That's all i can say. I'm hopeful that i can eek out.

What happened To Jack Ma
"Development between chinese companies in the. Us is only part of the larger tech story in china. Late in two thousand twenty. China joined the us in europe in a global big tech reckoning when it released series of proposals to rein in the chinese fintech sector new rules on how online leaders could operate and the government increased scrutiny on players like ten cents at jd dot com in an effort to curb anti competitive behaviour. Then china effectively blocked would become the largest ipo ever. A public listing. The chinese fintech aunt group shortly thereafter china's markets regulator opened antitrust probe into e commerce giant alibaba aunt groups largest shareholder and one of the most valuable tech firms in the world amid all this chinese officials had met jack. Ma co founder of ant group and co founder and former chairman of alibaba. He's still one of companies largest shareholders. He's china's biggest business. Celebrity enriches tech tycoon. He's regarded globally as a symbol of china's success up until recently he was a pretty visible character. Even starring as a judge on a popular reality show. But jack ma hasn't been seen publicly two months. We're all starting to wonder where he's gone back in october. A financial forum in shanghai mom spoke out against chinese regulators claiming they're conservative approach hindering innovation. He envisions a different financial system for china. Global onlookers are growing more and more concerned at the chinese communist party would rather those visions remain unrealised. Here's becky quick. joining us. Right now is leeland. Miller china beige book international. Ceo and leland. Obviously it's just speculation at this point but it does come after. Some clearly heightened tensions between jack ma alibaba and chinese regulators. Yeah i mean the question right now is whether jack is is managing a very low profile for his own good or whether he's been brought in a dark room in his having new terms of alibaba dictate to him. A nobody knows nobody will know until till the government comes out with a statement I think right now you know. Jack is sort of muttering himself. Oops and it's oops on some of the things he's done in recent months in terms of antagonizing government regulators but this is something that the alibaba ecosystem has been something that has been antagonizing state banks and the state run financial system for years and years. So it's it's not altogether surprising that he's he's become under more pressure right now and he has a target on his back now that he's been completely vulnerable. You're not talking about the retail side of alibaba. You're talking about the financial side what they've been doing. And why don't you explain that a little bit to people why it's such a threat to the chinese banking system. This is a point that That i've made years ago when alibaba. Cbs's guest commentator for the alibaba ipo in two thousand fourteen and everyone was talking about spectacular. This company is and it's true. It's spectacular innovative companies. But the is alibaba's not one company. It's actually two companies It is a retail firm. Which is a chinese national champion. I think that's what people think of when eight when they think of alibaba most of the time. But it's also a giant financial firm and it has been innovating behind the scenes of chinese finance for years whether it's on my mutual funds whether it's e payments these are systems that have been beating the tar out of the state banking system. Alibaba for yle was allowed through you. It's it's mutual fund to to offer these very very high rates where the state banking system couldn't and over time china beige book. You can see that. There's been migration deposit flight from the state banks over the alibaba system. So jack has got an enormous number of people who really dislike him inside the chinese banking system and this is a problem that happens in beijing step in and they'd regulate the alibaba are force them to bring the rates down but this has been a tension not for months but for years. So so this is this. Is jack finding himself. Boehner and having lot of enemies on the inside leland. Just in terms of of what that means for the chinese population. I mean it's it's a good thing. It's it's helped so many people in china who wouldn't have been able to get loans otherwise wouldn't have been able to do some of those things so i have a hard time thinking that that in itself has been the biggest problem or why the communist party might down on him But you know some of the things that he said very recently have been incredibly antagonistic. Just in terms of things you're not allowed to say in china that he said right in one rule is you don't antagonize the chinese communist party and expect good things to happen but but look wall. What alibaba has been doing been innovative. It's been good for chinese consumers and households and the chinese economy keep in mind the vested interests that are affected by this. You have these technocrats. Bureaucrats have the bankers who have watched their their fiefdom less and less important over time. and so even. If this is good for china writ large. This is a real question. Mark to where the banking system falls in this new world order now. If jack had his way he was sweep the banking system aside and replace it so it may be good for china. But it's not good for a lot of party. People who are in the top of the power chain which means that jack better tread carefully at this point. It's raised a lot of questions about what this means for international companies trying to do business in china whether they be tech companies or something else but we also have at the same time the nyse announcing that it is not going to move forward with its plans to deliver those three. Chinese companies says it did this after having discussions with regulators. But you've got to think it's it's got more to do with who's going to be in the oval office come january twentieth a biden administration versus a trump administration. What what does the setup for just in terms of the us relationship with china. Yeah look i don't think biden particularly wants to touch this issue so he's keeping his hands off it but this is really about inattention by the trump team. I mean they put a rule in place and they sort of went off and pay no attention. You know certain certain agencies like treasury behind the scenes hoping to weaken this. And and that's what they did and so if you don't if you put out a bunch of rules and then you don't fall through on them. You're going to have a lot of questions over how they should be interpreted and at this point. They're so little clarity on what the administration was asking for. And what the executive orders called for and and what executive orders in the pipeline. That these That nyse in and a bunch of other financial entities basically said. We don't understand what's going on here and we're not going to implement them and they got soft backing behind the scenes from treasury not to implement them and so here you are. Everything is sort of falling apart in terms of some of these latest trump moves in the last days of the trump administration. Bring them back to what investors might be looking for. Is this a situation. Where manufacturing companies anybody. Who's making things that they're selling Either from china or to china. How is this going to play out. You have any ideas. I think that the biden administration has come in with severe restraints in terms of what they can do. They want to use political chits. They have on domestic issues. They they know that biden has had years and years and years of being called week on china when he was vice president. And so they're not gonna be able to do any heavy lifting on the china side particularly in the early days. So i think that from this standpoint biden wants to sort of he won't be able to pointing back he doesn't want to do a whole lot. And so you know you're going to be on a glide path at least until he gets both staff in you know three to six months from now but in terms of investment with china. This really has to play out. The chinese are certainly gonna come in and try to have a honeymoon. Period with a biden administration promising kinds of climate goodies. The question is who are going. To policymakers. That are gonna be in charge of china policy for for for the biden administration. And are they going to have authority within his realm in order to push back congress for certainly be at their backs but but this is some this issues. These china issues. That i think biden would like to ignore for as long as possible in his first six months. There are a lot of china hawks in congress. That would probably make that pretty difficult to ask. What what should we be watching. What are the key points or the key events. A lot of it has to whether whether cova continues to to suck all the oxygen out of the room you know code will be will be issue number one. But you're right on congress you're gonna you know you have some very fire. Republicans you also some fire. Democrats who who are who are who are quite animated on the china issue. There's a bipartisan agreement. Right now that china needs to be dealt with rather rather tough fashion. So i think that you're going to have a lot of pressure from congress. Which is why i think biden wants to have nothing to do with it. He's gonna let some a lot of some of the trump stuff glide he's gonna want to avoid the issue as much as possible. It's going to become harder and harder. As the beijing olympics comes into sight year and a half from now There is going to be a lot of push both domestically internationally to boycott the olympics A year plus from now and this is going to become extremely hot topic not yet but later this year and so i think he's got a pass for at least a few months but later this year. I think it's going to get a lot lot lot tougher on the environment on china again. I can't believe the olympics in beijing are only a year and a half or so away. A leland it's good to talk to you. We will see him
