Assessing Semiconductor Supply Issues, Giga Berlin Battery Update
"Everybody robbing our here and today we're going to be talking about the semiconductor supplier issue that has been affecting the automotive industry as a whole and we do have a few other topics to go through as well. This is a live episode because after we go through this. I do have some thoughts to share. But i thought it'd be best shared live so we're gonna do the kind of normal episode structure But it will be live so bear with me as always but we'll get into it will start off just looking at the stock today so finish down five point three percent to eight hundred and four dollars eighty two sons. I compare to the nasdaq which is on the video. But down a quarter of a percent so it was a tough day for tesla today especially relative to the broader market other automakers. Did you know at least the ones. I looked at fare worse than the market today as well thing. Gm ford were right around down to percents neo. Probably in that ballpark as well So i don't know that this drop was entirely isolated to tesla but certainly tussle moved a little bit further perhaps related to the supply of semiconductor. So let's move into that topic For whatever reason. I've had i don't know fifty to one hundred people. Ask me about this over the last two days whether that's in the youtube comments or on twitter or on patriae on a lot of people for some reason seem to be incredibly interested in this in the last forty eight hours even though this has been something that's been discussed in the automotive industry since back in mid december And tesla has already talked about it a little too so we'll go through tussles comments. I'm here as well. So essentially what's going on. I'll go into some links here in a second. But what's going on here is that there is the semiconductor supply shortage which is a factor of multiple different things that factored into it so primarily what has been driving it is two things the pandemic and then the rise in some areas of consumer electronics. So the work from home movement during the pandemic has caused increase supply for things like laptops and stuff like that. That people are upgrading for working from home. The five g cycle with phones has caused an increase from what i gather in semiconductor needs and then the next generation consoles with the xbox one whatever it's called now and the bs five launching those things have worked together to create more more demand in the consumer electronics base and then in the automotive space because of the shutdowns that were experienced in the first half twenty twenty the a lot of automakers cut their orders or their contracts with semiconductor suppliers to help get through that period of time. So what that is caused. Is those autumn those suppliers to necessarily want to cut production. And things like that. They worked through Their safety stocks. So let's let's get into you some comments here from Chipmakers the first one. That i wanna look here. This is from microchip technology. So this is from a couple of weeks backer. Just not only one week back. But they kind of talk about how they got into the situation that they're in In terms of semiconductor in the automotive supply chain so they're talking about how their customers generally pulled back very hard. During the pandemic there was no backlog visibility in this environment. They had no choice to down inventories and safety stock to protect themselves from what looked like severe economic contraction and they saw similar similar actions from their suppliers that worked that they were together for Actually producing their semiconductors so they said during his time no one in the industry was adding capacity. Obviously given the uncertainty about win things would recover And that uncertainty extended significantly as the bottom of market as well so one of the things that they talk about here. That will come back. A little bit later is that they're offering this microchip. Preferred supply program called bs to offer the prioritized capacity to companies. That are willing to work with them. To order. twelve months of continuous non cancelable non reschedule will supply So they're not guaranteeing capacity for that but they're prioritizing people that are willing to make those longer term commitments and because if we rewind it back to the for salvatore nineteen because other because a lot of other because a lot of automakers were uncertain about their demand they were unwilling to give a lot of certainty to these two suppliers. So that's kind of brought the semiconductor situation into where it is today and they're trying to work through this now and that's impacting. A lot of different automakers couple other quotes here just from people in the industry so this one is from continental Major supplier in the space. They're talking about lead. Times for semiconductors saying what with lead times of six to nine months. The semiconductor industry has not been able to scale it fast enough to meet this unexpected growth. In automotive demand which really is a return to previous levels not necessarily new growth than they continue saying quote the bottlenecks from the semiconductor industry expected to continue well into twenty twenty one causing major disruptions and continentals production. So that gives us a bit of a timeline in terms of how this issue looks. We don't necessarily have a scale from that. Then let's move into one of their quote here. This is from Tmc one of the obviously major manufacturers. I think they do like seventy percent of some semiconductors or something like that so specific to their automotive customers They continued to decrease demand for cms t s emcees semiconductors in third quarter of two thousand nineteen. The chipmaker only began to see southern recovery automotive orders in the fourth quarter. Their ceo said earnings call earlier this month
Molecular Therapeutics Hopes to Reshape Gene Therapy
"So the first rail on a touch on today is from arena pharmaceuticals. The ticker symbol is a u. p. h. And they're sitting in a market cap. Now veron two two point one billion dollars and what we heard about a week ago is that they received fda approval for luke kindness for adult patients with active lupus nephritis and for those who haven't been following the company too long. They showed really really powerful phase three data. The stock shot up really well and then it's been kind of slowly selling off into you know around the thirteen fourteen dollar area and what we heard with this. Fda approval is the stock shot up to around twenty bucks and since then it's trading at around sixteen dollars now. I took a position around thirteen bucks and then sold most of it at around eighteen. And now i'm just sitting at around ten shares in anticipation of the future. And so we'll talk about that right now. But basically what the fda approval there are few details and one was that there was a black box warning but it was pretty much in line with cyclosporine. So it's not really anything to be concerned about. The other real benefit is that the patent protection is likely until the year twenty thirty seven so there were some concerns that the patent protection for arena in this drug was not gonna last that long and that could cut into the profits given the fact that they would lose exclusivity after a while so the other thing we heard is that arrhenius set the pricing and they said it at a price of three thousand nine hundred and fifty dollars for sixty capsules and then they estimate that the net revenue per patient per year is gonna sit at around sixty five thousand dollars so i did some quick math. Here to look at the prevalence of lupus and in general has around twenty to one hundred fifty cases per one hundred thousand people so in the united states that works out to around sixty six thousand two four hundred ninety thousand in the usa. And i know that's a pretty broad range but these are the These the publicly available stats. The corporate presentation of iranian says. That around forty percent of lupus patients have lupus nephritis so the actual problems in the kidneys that would benefit from this therapy so that brings us down to around twenty six thousand one hundred ninety eight thousand total addressable patients in the usa. So we have. Here's an estimated total potential revenue between one point seven billion to twelve point eight billion now again. That's a. It's a huge range. When there's an order of magnitude in there but at least there we get a sense of the kind of revenue. The company is going to be able to bring in sitting at around a two billion dollar market cap. It's definitely on the lower end. Even though this is the total addressable market and we know that arena isn't gonna be able to penetrate the whole thing. But i think the reason why the stock is of depressed is because of the bear narrative in regards to launch concerns so often with these smaller companies. Because they don't have an established salesforce they don't have necessarily those established relationships with either. Kol's or doctors space. It's difficult for companies that are small to really ramp up and deliver when it comes to the sales numbers so the bare narrative is saying that well they're going to really struggle with the launch therefore the company should only be expected to do the lower end of their expectation. Now on the both side. They're saying that well arena could be an emanate contender. And there's reasons to suggest that given that the risk is so low with this drug now. The data looks good and it's already fda approved so they could be being looked at by larger pharmaceutical companies. Who already have those established sales and marketing pipelines to just include this into their portfolio products. And start selling it so. I'm not sure what's going to happen. I'm going to relatively small position. I don't know how much i feel like diving in here. Given the the launch is going to be complicated. But i could miss out on a a merger acquisition deal. That could come as well. So that's really i think. Obviously it's very positive for the company and very positive for patients that are suffering with lupus nephritis but for me. I'm happy with my small position and just seeing what happens with the start with that. Let's move onto rhythm pharmaceuticals ticker symbol are ytm and they're sitting at a market cap of around one point three billion dollars and what they announced. It was positive data from semolina tied in additional emcee for our pathway deficient related. obesity 's so semolina tied was recently approved for hamas egas recessive mutant obese conditions related to pompey pcs k. One and leptin receptor so what that means. Is that patients that for this need to have a knockout in or a mutation in both copies of the gene whether it's policy pcs k. One or leptin receptor. Now what we weren't sure of is whether or not similan tide had an effect in hetero zayas patients and what this is is patients that have one functional copy of this gene so if their drugs sent. Milan could have an effect. In hetero zygote significantly expand the patient population that would qualify for treatment with this drug and with an expanded patient population. Obviously the revenues could be substantially higher than what we expect if it was only the home. Zygote
Interview With Robert Livingston
"How you doing. I'm doing good doctor livingston. Are you bummed. That if you google your name you're going to get one of the fathers of the constitution right or one of these early founding fathers taking all the real estate yes yeah this ranch of being named dax. There's just not a bunch out there right now your christian name it is. It is yeah. My mom and dad had read a book in the lead character's name was dax. And let's go for it where you from originally. So i was born in lexington kentucky and that's where i spent most of my time but i've lived in six states in four foreign countries. So do you have a favorite my favorite place to visit his turkey. Eastern bowl is my favorite city in the world really has the oslo balance of chaos and order if you will oh okay good. I need you to drill down on the order. Because when i look at it looks very bright. Very frenetic very exciting. And i'm a little bit like that's seems maybe too chaotic. There's a method to the madness because there are places. I've been that are chaotic. They're just chaos deal with it but turkey just seems chaotic like this. Is it comparable to any other form or european country or is it its own thing and that's why you love it. It's its own thing. But i would say it's most comparable to spain. I don't know if you've been disowned ensuring people go out to eat restaurants. Don't open before nine o'clock in the party starts at one. Am and it goes to eight in the morning and spain has a different rhythm. And i think that's the most similar country to turkey and its mediterranean so similarities in the cuisine fish a lot of oil you know and then a crazy history. One of the most historical places you could visit. And that's what i like about it too. So you just hit the number one criteria for whether i like cities or don't and that is rhythm so i'll be places and i'm like yeah it's beautiful. That's a big tall building. That's got all the accoutrements of a great city. But there's just no rhythm happening here and then conversely you go down to austin texas. They don't have a ton to look at. And i'm like oh i can feel the rhythm all around me exactly now. How did you end up at harvard. Like most things in life. It had something to do with my network. So i was in england at the time because i had accepted a position because again our wanderers case. You can't tell i. Don't mind packing up and going to some exotic place. And i got an offer to take over as head of organizational behavior department at the university of sussex and i had my own center and when i was there at the center i discovered my real passion. I like to say. I transitioned from being a gardener to being a florist. When i was just a straight researcher i had my hands in the dirt. Cultivating blooms if you will. And then. when. I was head of the centre. I interacted with metropolitan police. The nhl the national healthcare service all these organizations to sort of give away my flowers if you will and so. I got into the florist business. Like how do you arrange these flowers into the perfect bouquet to give it to people at weddings. Because what's the point staying in a greenhouse if no one ever sees the beauty of your flowers and so you know when i was in england i discovered the passion of sort of giving away the science and then harvard. You know i was giving a talk. And they said well. You know we're holding company of entrepreneurs will let you come here and do whatever you wanna do if you don't want publish anymore will let you be a practitioner. But an academic at the same time and i was like really because most places aren't set up you know. Harvard makes its own rules. So i sort of took on this position to be an academic practitioner which led to this book that we're going to talk about which is sort of trying to distill. The science synthesize it assembly like a bouquet into something that people can digest and use to make profound sustainable change around racism. So that's like my purpose in life. Now where did you get your doctor. Degree because lexington kentucky and then ending up england emceeing already. You're privy to to dramatically different racial structures. And i wonder where you went to college if you maybe even a third and that somehow helps you on your journey just to have witnessed all this stuff firsthand. I went from coast to coast to coast and into the mid west. So basically i started my undergrad tulane university in. I did a study abroad in spain. Which is how. I came to know. Spain fell in love with spain. And i majored in spanish. That was one of my things. And then i went to. Ucla started at the gulf of mexico. Coast number one went to california. Ucla that was number two. And i was getting a phd in romance language and linguistics. So something completely unrelated. But i was looking at themes of oppression in latin american literature and colonialism. So i always been interested in that. In undergrad i did the thesis on a comparative study of racism in brazil and the united states but long story short i was hiking in joshua tree. And there was a psychology student. Who said you know you're doing really cool research. Did you know you could do this in the real world. And i was like no. There's a field where you can actually study racism and discrimination. She's like yeah you know. Why don't you come in audit a class. And that was the beginning of the end. So i left that program. I got a master's. I was a heroin from impeach d. But decided to start all over again in social psychology. So i started at yale. Struggled from coast to coast to coast and my professor at ucla said. Don't go to yale because i got into princeton yale. He said go to ohio state. That's like the best program in the country in what you're doing and as a phd student or go to programs not schools. And i didn't think. I could live in columbus ohio so i went to yale and then i was like you know what i can't live in new haven connecticut so the professor at ohio state would you guys take me and fortunately i had my own funding because i wanted. Nsf fellowship. so. I was able to export that i went to ohio state and worked with one of the top people in the field maryland brewer. Who's like the godmother of social identity.
The Story of How TSMC Came To Dominate the World
"So obviously tracy. We've been talking a lot about chips lately. But for all the episodes we've done we haven't hit like what is sort of a. I guess i would say the elephant in the room or the gorilla in the room that keeps coming up over and over again. We've been going at a. I would say from a us perspective. Very focused on the trouble at intel. But we haven't really talked about the success story. That is taiwan. Semiconductor manufacturing company better known as t s emcee. Yeah exactly right so every episode that we do it sort of comes back to them. What a juggernaut. They've become and of course you know. The sort of basic story is that manufacturing chips is extremely hard It's extremely expensive. And it's very difficult to scale until Is one of the rare companies that designs and manufactures. Its own chips. But that for a lot of these companies that are sort of exploding ri- gaining market share there Having taiwan semi manufacture them and taiwan semi is getting extremely good or is extremely good at a manufacturing and maybe Pulling away from intel some extent in terms of its manufacturing capabilities. Right and i think they actually invented the foundry model which you know this idea of just manufacturing chips which keeps coming up over and over and over again in all of our conversations as one reason the entire semiconductor industry has changed and one reason why intel is struggling but the thing i find kind of amazing like in twenty twenty one. We all take it for granted. That tsmc is this massive player in the semiconductor industry in the world. Really but i find it really really noteworthy and you know somewhat surprising. In retrospect that what is a single company on an island has emerged to really dominate chips. That are now vital to all sorts of things so computers smartphones cars. Everything i think. Tsmc manufacturers little over half of the world's chips so it's not quite a monopoly but again like they are the juggernaut in the room as he put it absolutely. And it's such a. I mean it's such a pivotal company for a lot of reasons. I mean you mentioned cars. It was just a story this week recording this january twelfth by the way there was just a story this week about how car manufacturers around the world are actually running into supply constraints because they can't get chips because of the chip manufacturers decided to reduce their production of automotive chips during the crisis in the spring on the expectation that demand wasn't going to be there and now they haven't ramped up taiwan semi They're to actually reporting earnings. This week expected to be very strong. Earnings are soaring. stock is soaring. And then of course. Because it's in the strategic position end because taiwan itself is in this Uh strategic position obviously between the us and china and the roll over its status. It's just an incredibly central player and sort of necessary to understand the story right a big player in tech big player across multiple supply chains in a bunch of different industries. Uncertainly player geopolitics as well. So we really talk more time on semi and we have the perfect guest to do that. Someone who knows all about the company who's been covering them for a long time since long before they were the dominant player They are today. We're going to be speaking to copen. He is a tech columnist at bloomberg. Opinion has been with us a bloomberg for fifteen years and he's actually been covering The tech industry from taipei specifically for the last twenty one years Everything about Taiwan semiconductor where it came from this important player so tim thank you very much for joining us. Hey thanks time guys to talk to you tim. How would you describe the importance of taiwan semiconductor in the world right now well as you assess just saying they are so huge. Tracy pointed out the creates. Such a large share of the world saw chips. There's probably not a single device in the world that doesn't have. Tsmc somewhere but whether it's a car die. Fine of course famously. But even some really unimportant boring things like temperature sense. A hiya or some led lights array there. They do serve much of the waltz products. They're they're basically everywhere and so if that would've stopped production. Tomorrow i think the global technology industry would grind to a halt very very
The weirdest stuff at CES
"Joining us to talk about some of the most unusual stuff it's es this year is usa today tech columnist. Jennifer jolly a jennifer. Thanks for being here. Oh my gosh you guys. Thanks so much for having me. I love talking about weird tech. It's my favorite thing. All right so what was the weirdest thing you saw this slightly different. Cas where we all were covering it. Virtually yeah well we're just. It's it's going to be a tie between toews poop detective toilet. You heard that right and i mean please. Just start with the puns. Now i call it number two on my list healthier future based on what you leave behind get ready to be bulled over from the latest data dumb. I mean you can't you can't make this stuff up. What does it do. Tell me you you. You've you've peaked. You've peaked. My i can't think of a good pun around the top of my head so i'm going to give up. He's flushed with excitement about this. There you go there you go. Okay so todos newest ai. Smart commode is a sensor filled. Smart bowl aimed at detecting early signs of disease based on just imagine doing air quotes key outputs so it will analyze everything from how long you sit on the throne to The temperature of your skin as yours just sitting there to whether your stool contains enough fiber and then it will send you recommendations on how to improve your health via app on your smartphone showing gives you solid output. I caught up with you guys young so there we have it so that's got to be one of the weirdest last year. I talked about There was some gadget that analyzed your cats poop to let you know about your cats health so it was just a small leap to human health based on. You know looking into the future by what you leave behind. Yeah i'm gonna stop now it totally but you know it really it really make sense because you know how they've said. Some universities were analyzing waste on campus for covid spreading around so anyway so you mentioned it was a tie. So what's the other weird thing that you that at the top of your list. The bio breast milk. You guys remember last year when impossible pork basically got all the headlines plant based bacon that actually tasted really really good. Well this is again with the pun. The mother of all new high tech smart foods bio milk is a customized cultured breast milk. That is made from cells of a pregnant mother than cultivated in a lab to reproduce human milk. But it's personalized for that specific infant from that actual mother. So it's a way really. And i mean it sounds crazy but female Cell biologist female food scientists founded this company to create an alternative solution to formula to the packaged powdered formulas. We've been using forever because three out of four moms. Have some reason they have to stop breastfeeding before the recommended. Six months so it could be work. It could be health related. It's stressful any nursing. Mom knows it is one of the hardest jobs you will ever do. Toss in pandemic and working from home in teaching your kids. I mean it's really really hard in the best of times so that is just something i can't i couldn't believe it when i heard about it but i'm excited to see it. Come hopefully this year. So let's get to some of the really cool stuff that happened in the s one of the things that i've heard i'd heard about were these bionic contact lenses i think. Can you describe them. They sound really cool. Yeah it's called mojo vision. It's an a. Are embedded contact lens. That is as close to a bionic accessory as i could ever imagine. There's a teeny tiny display. It's half a millimeter in diameter. That's about the same size as a grain of sand that's actually embedded within the contact lends itself and then it projects images and information really subtly. You really take your attention away from what you're looking at but it projects that into your peripheral vision as you either. Walk down the street or cycle up a hill or even look up into the night sky. It's absolutely mind blowing at this. Was the winner of css last gadget standing. And that's an event that i have emceed for the past several years including this year i had not seen not mojo lens until video that the company played during the event and i had to pick my job up off the desk. I just cannot believe this kind of futuristic far out technology is actually here and the company told me they're going to launch this For people who are visually impaired. I and follow up with a consumer model. They have to go through all kinds of of fda and f. like all kinds of regulations because it is a contact lens. I e a medical device but they are looking at two three years out with these. Maybe less sounds like something. I am i on medically go to the goes. Terminator two were you. Were you got to see through the terminator's eyes and stuff was coming up on the side and you're like wow that if that could happen in the future yeah not only could is will. We've seen it. We also saw the music's glasses that do something very similar. But they're a pair of glasses so the difference is a contact lens and a pair of futuristic super cool smart glasses nice beyond products. Were there any trends or big takeaway. She took from the show this year. Jennifer there was a lot this year. You guys have already talked about this. A lotta pandemic tech germ killer. Everything's from target as new anti microbial backpack to special lights. I saw ub techs. Giant robot can rule through rooms shooting off giant rays of uvc. Light to sterilize a room so huge huge emphasis on clean tech mask tech. You guys wrote about the airpods mask. I have that with me where you know. There's a little disc on the front of it that connects with your smartphone and can give you all kinds of information about the air that you're breathing. How much your breathing. So that was a really really big trend and then also just comfort more comfort and this big buzzword this year delight at home figuring out ways to bring basically your whole entire world inside the walls of your home or even your backyard and have it be a lot better to hang out. There in the future will

Wanda Vision is not just debut ng next Friday It is debuting with a double episode two episodes next Friday. Star Wars.
An Indigenous Mixtape from Lima, Peru
"Basically this week's episode is a catch wa language mix tape and this mix tape starts with track. One introducing librado. Yeah that's clearly now my voice. I'm getting mixed eight hosting help from my friend. Dj just john. Okay here we go now. That's lebron connie emceeing at the national theatre here in lima. This past february he's rapping in a mix of spanish and catch wa if you haven't heard of catch wa that's kind of the point. It's the most widely spoken indigenous language and latin america about ten million people speak it and liberal bringing it to people in a whole new way. His mc name librado. Connie means i am a free man and a call and response you hear throughout his concerts is catch wa is resistance. I met librado while in lima peru. And i was in lima on this. Totally non far-flung gig filming young rappers and beat makers which have been doing on and off for the past seven years all over the world priscilla. Anyway i've always been interested in ways. Music leads to cultural mashups like catch one hip hop and how that intersects with identity and the way people feel about themselves and when it comes to documenting hip hop it's always a cool story when different languages and traditions get mixed into the music but it's kind of hard to tell what that mixing means. What does it mean. When someone is wrapping in their ancestral language does that relate to a language living or dying and house. All that culturally significant politically significant. When does it lead to change on. Its face it might seem like the fight for catch. Wise is about lima's pride in their past and that's true but there's another crucial thing at stake here. It's the ability for indian culture to survive and to evolve into the future so to get the significance of what liberals doing we need to start with some background on ketchaoua. But you don't hear much catch. What outside of the countryside in peru ever since colonisation spanish has been the dominant language of government. Business education. Really life in general. And there's of course all kinds of cultural implications with that as well in the broncos music though you don't hear any of that higher he swapping between languages constantly and letting catch while on hooks his call and responses. He's young but he's like a classic ninety s hip hop head and when we hung out. He seemed really comfortable in his skin and sincere about everything. Oh and heads up. We were talking spanish most of this interview. So you'll hear some overdub. English shorter track to deepen the andean bronx. This is teach them what either made from purple corn. It's very delicious from corn. You can even make teacher. They hold a credible. We're walking down along. Walk walking for a little bit. We are eating a kind of Proven popcorn and we're drinking a purple corn based drink. Ginger morava balmy out here. It's not that hot again. Noisy sirens is a cultural hub for peruvians. It's like they're la and new york matching into one about ten million people live here and the population's growing we're walking through downtown. Lima librado told me that when he went to new york to perform for the first time in two thousand eighteen a lot of what he saw reminded him of home unusual ways. You told the crowd that he realized he was like a rapper from the indian. Bronx they loved it. You know. he's a rapper. So he's good with metaphor and there's something very hip hop about his light experience. He grew up in a world that was hostile towards identity specifically his indian catch. Wasp became identity twenty mike cornell so librado wrapping and catch wa flowed great to my ear as someone who didn't have a lot of linguistic and cultural context. It's just good sound but sometimes locals were shocked to hear the language mixed into hip hop track three welcome to the donkey belly sky. And what are those. Locals is my friend oscar durand he's producing and basically co hosting this episode with me. Oscar grew up in lima in the eighties. And i left peru in two thousand two to study and live abroad as a photo journalist. The first time that occurred without those music. I was surprised you know he was not the first time i catch wa. I heard it when i was in crew. Obviously but it was the first time that i hear someone rapping ikeja and he was a new context for language at the energy. So i knew that. I had to meet this guy told me the story man. I wasn't there so you know. I already heard about him. So i was really curious about his because as a journalist i have my my antennas. You always scanning for interesting stories to last time when i was visiting peru i was there for work. I send a message of media and she told me. have this concert. why don't you come. I couldn't make it but him and his band were playing this rehearsal space so i just went and then we start chatting and it was just such great energy because i felt like i knew these guys forever and then they start playing and it was just the most amazing experiences having peru because he had this concert just for myself. But what was it about him that shocked locals. I mean there's great musicians in peru for sure. So what was it about librado. That made him stand out. Well its first surprising to catch on. Because when i was growing up catcher was really around me in school. Remember catcher being mentioned in our history class when we were talking about the inca empire our glory days but those days are long gone and many people would not associate catcher with innovation or success.
AMC+ to air first-ever Walking Dead holiday special
"Oh, the holiday special. Um, I actually when I saw this headline and went Oh, God, no. The walking dead. We'll take a break from bad vibes to Eric's first ever holiday special. What? Yeah. Does that mean on December 13th? I will tell you what it means. Just in 10 days, okay? There is going to be a holiday special is going to be hosted by Chris Hardwick, and he's going to moderate a mass chat with cast members past and present. Here's the part that's gonna get real cringe. E for everybody. You know, there's also gonna be some caroling s O s O. The actress who played Maggie's Little sister, Emily Kenny, she played Beth Green. She's going to perform the Yuletide classic up on the Housetop. Oh, while let's see. I looked up all the actors. They just list the actor's name, so I looked up their characters while Ezekiel Jerry You, Mako and Lydia is going. They're going to do a parody of 12 days of Christmas, a song presumably with lyrics about flesh eating and society crumbling. Okay, so yeah. On the house top. And then you have the 12 days of Christmas about zombies by those fine folks. On then it's just It's all just so incredibly awkward. Then they're going to do actually the only cool thing If you're really into the show is that there's going to be a table reading from the forthcoming episode, which won't air until late March of next year, so they're going to do a table reading of this. Um okay. So you're gonna basically know what the episode is, If you watch this the next episode and other people, including this are Carol Eugene. Connie Judith. And he did favorite Yes.

But it's going to be, uh, airs December 13th on a emcees. Premium streaming bundle. We have to pay extra for this I get. I don't know the premium streaming bundle. Is that something I'm assuming it is? It's something that AMC has, like their own streaming service. Like CBS all access. Have to do some research on that, but that's when it airs. It's really great for people who are super into a walking dead, but the whole singing thing just makes me really nervous. That's why I want to see it to see them. Like do wedding. Oh, gods require the walking dead. You know that if they're changing the words to Zombie ish stuff. Yeah, I mean, they've done this several times in the show word. They'll have an actor who can sing and it's just so cringe. E, like, you know, like that one guy who was at the hilltop and he would like, sit by the campfire. Yeah, that dude, she couldn't be there. Yeah. You know what? He probably is begging to be there. He'll be there. Yeah, And so they'll take these people that are actors and singers. And somehow work in music to the show, which is always like no, not this. Bring back the flesh eating zombies. You know, we don't want to see singing by the campfire less obvious. They're gonna attack and interrupted. That's the only purpose. You know what I mean. 12 ripping heads on got suspending 10 rotting body. Nine. Next breaking glory gravestone.

That real quick, Jason. Silent for a minute or two. You found it. Okay. Well, that's still excellent. All right, so I'll have to research What am sees premium streaming bundle is and see if we can Maybe just buy it for a night and then cancel. Yes, because I will. I'm curious just to see how this whole thing will go down. Let me just say there are certain shows that shouldn't do a Christmas special.

Powerhouse Marketer Ana Valdz on Using Media to Create Change
"I speak with a lot of latinos who emigrated to the united states as children are in their teens. You're thirty when you came to the us and you were single. It's a big leap. It is a huge leap. You know in a lot of different ways. Mexico became small in the sense that when we opened up i realized that there was so much more so my masters took me to spain. My phd took me to the united states. And it allowed me to myself. It allowed me to be exactly who. I wanted the way i wanted another thing. That was very crucial. And i didn't mention it. Before was the latino movement in mexico philanthropy and social movements are not easy to happen and over here. I just saw immediately. What was happening. I saw people at the white house at very high levels that in countries like my original country mexico could have never had that upward mobility. I saw literally the american dream and being here for the first six months. Change the perspective of my life. You worked at the white house. Office of presidential personnel received a presidential appointment from president clinton to act as a special assistant for latin america at the us department of energy. How do you go from that world to building your own production company so my husband comes in there. I need my husband at the hispanic heritage awards when vice president gore was a special guest. And that's you know in politics. I worked there. I'm latino letting van. You wanna come. So i actually went to the event and my husband right now was the emcee. Ob vent and so there was an after party. I met him. We started dating long distance. And we also realize that what i wanted to do politics. He wanted to do in media which is bringing all the latino amazing element into mainstream in mikey's mainstream politics and in his case mainstream media additionally he was exactly what i wanted to do which is used media to create change. At that point. I was using politics to create change but the truth is media was mice expertise so two years later we get married. I leave my job. It was really hard by the way but leave my job and moved to california and then we started working together with my concepts in washington. Dc and all his production company that already existed when i got married and do shows and other things what actually went in to building that production company walk us through it first of all the passion you know the passion of knowing that there was a treasure than was a blind spot for america. That was waiting to happen. And that could make so much money for all this corporations and studios and competent producers that were in the business to make money. We could make money by transforming the community and transforming the way the community looked in the united states.
Stop Being a Doormat!
"It took me almost forty years to learn how to do this. And now i just do it all the time. I love doing it. I'm talking about learning to just say no which i have found in my travels around. The country is still one of the most difficult things in the world for women to do. Dr martha beck is here today. With the cure. Really if you will listen to her. If you pay attention and get it you can cure your disease to please or at least take big strides towards carrying it beginning today. Dr martha beck is a regular contributor to the magazine. Where i'm wearing the hat this month. In june and actually martha. I've never told you this but you are the first thing i go to an magazine you are. I love your column so much. I think you have such yours. You go to mind. Yeah what i know for sure way already know what i know for sure so i already wrote the so. I go to you every month. Because i think you have solid sounded by. She's in omega seen every month and she got her phd from harvard while raising three children. She works as a life coach and has really sound sensible advice that you can just in the instant that you read it. No that's the truth. I'm going to stop doing that. She says every woman in the country is socialized to act like a doormat. We all have been socialized that way and today you all agree right today. She is going to begin to teach us how to say no. Kelly desperately need. Martha's help kelly. Says she is so eager to please that. She spends thousands of dollars a year trying to buy people's love. Look at this. I'm a twenty nine year old single woman. I'm very very hard working in the real estate field. I own my own home. I drive a very nice car. And i make very good money and i feel like i have to buy other people's love. I am doormat when it comes to money. I just cannot say no to my friends family or any type of relationship. That i'm and i just broke up with my boyfriend of eleven years and basically i paid for everything to keep him in my life. I even found out that he was using my credit card to go to strip clubs and it was hard for me to even confront him about using my money to pay other girls to take their tops off. I finally got the courage to kick him out. But i am still paying for him to stay in a hotel till he gets some money to get. I'm a pushover with my friends. I typically pay for dinners. they don't ever asks me. I just feel like that's just my job that i need to pay to keep them in my line. I always buy the most expensive gifts from my friends. Baby showers wedding gifts birthdays. Three years ago. I loaned my friend about three thousand dollars And i i haven't even gotten five dollars back. I'm a very visual person around town. I get compliments all the time saying kelly. I've never seen upset. I always emceeing you smiling. But the fact is that when i get home is a very lonely time. I'm not happy. And i wish i could find somebody to give me something. I don't think i've ever had i don. I haven't even had a boyfriend that could afford to take me to mcdonald's. Well dr martha says that Kelly is just like a man who sleeps with prostitutes. Not exactly how it's it's more like. She's a man who has decided at the beginning that no woman can ever love him that he's not good enough and so he only plays prostitutes because he figures that way he can't lose. He pays people to pretend to love him because he does not believe that he can be left without that guys. Think prostitutes love them. No no that's the. They want the prostitute to pretend to love them. Okay but of course. They think she's doing it for the money right. And basically what kelly's doing is have you ever tried making a friendship or being in a relationship where you didn't money so what you're doing is you're starting with the theory. I'm not loveable. Therefore i will buy people's love but you're always conscious that it's bought and paid for so it doesn't feel like love to you now. What i suspect is that these people really do love you you know. I know that. I have several friends. Left you're keeping it away you see in the tape. I wish that i could find somebody that would value me. That would give things to me. Well guess what you're going to mirror you're the only one who doesn't value and you as the bad news. The good news is that as you have the power to become the someone in your life who loves and cares for you okay. So that's why we gotta work on here.

She's just come from basketball practice, wearing shorts and sandals and her hair pulled back. She's not just an angry black woman, she says. She's also a high school student and an athlete. But woman have always always been taught that we had the fight hard so hard we had to put in those countless hours. We have the practice harder than a white girl. We had to work so much harder. And why is that? It's because America has normalized normalized it. We've normalized little black girls being in these streets finding for their lives. But we haven't normalized black girls being doctors. Black girls being principles like girl be a teacher's why black women and especially protecting black trans women, was a major topic of discussion at the rally.

Call of Duty's Gunsii Talks Change from 5v5 to 4v4 and RosterMania
"Less than twenty four hours after everyone Chaffetz activision blizzard announced the. Four for the next season, which changed from five five to forty four. Now, this is a bit of returned to its roots colored duties sports a four before was how everything used to run but what that change happening gear with no expansion beyond the twelve ts CDL suddenly, twelve spots for pros have disappeared at the highest level the change to forty four reserve the controversial. So players Ford Southern gutsy. Where do you say that change? honestly it's a, it's a very huge change I. Remember growing up being younger watching for before and then seeing the expansion five and an amateur scene that kind of got everyone's hopes up because they it being bobby five there's more spots there's more opportunities there's just there's just more to it. Now going back to forty four it's just a lot of competition. I thought I thought last year in the amateur scene. There was a lot of good talent out there and a lot of good anyone can be picked up this next upcoming year. But how it went back to forty four, it's going to be gladiator. Definitely, it seemed like a lot of teams defaulted to who some of the old guns veterans who've been call of duty for quite a long time this I hear the CDL but we also saw a lot of rookies. You saw the empire shots Utah Mac for the New York subletters really turnaround that team belt midseason, Y- There's value in having some of these young players you know people might recognize some of the big names but having young players having that young energy has shown to be really successful for a lot of teams. Yeah I agree one hundred percent I see a lot of the older people, all the people that commute competed saying how people always forget but I think there's just a lot of talent emceeing that you just have to take a chance like. There's just so much talent out there. There's so many people unknown people that don't get that chance. It don't have the connections to get to the next level, but they have that potential night just feel like if more professional teams take a chance on the obscene or brought more spotlight that it can just show like the potential we have in here. Absolutely you know previous success is not necessarily an indicator that you're going to continue being graded a game call of duty is just a game that changes each year at East sports in in all people just fall off at a certain point you gotta be make sure you're bringing in the young players, the people that could really source the seen few like the teams that are having the most success because if you could just grab a guy that was great on optic for years ago, dot com out any particular. Maybe. But that's not necessarily going to be great CDL. So you have to make sure that you're up-to-date with WHO IS THE BEST Of the youngest of the upcoming right now, I mean it has been a while since we've had new players like into the scene lake. I personally feel I. Don't personally feel but I, think it's time for like a new generation of that would make sense like I'm not calling them old but. I don't know I don't know where I'm going with this. No I. Think you're right. I talked about this a little bit with Mac on the show is that there's sort of a changing of guard first of all word the CD L. wherein entirely new eastward structure we've already seen. J.. Cap Who is one of those guys who's long time success retire we saw Karma retire we saw you know. Empire wins the championship at its. cloister that they drop waster. I can kramer clay for a second but yeah, they drop Claes who's now a three time world champion at keep the rookies keep some of the the other guys that. So it's feels like there is a bit of a changing of the guard. It's just up to some of those team managers to be like, okay we're gonNA take the chance on somebody who maybe doesn't have the pedigree but has the skill, and then they could start just you saw with Mac is hey, does it take long? If you start having success, you can start building your own brand. quickly.
Top Voice AI Stories in the First Half of 2020
"I. I asked each of the panelists today what they thought was the top story in the first half of twenty twenty invoice in everyone seemed to agree that covid nineteen was to be Let's start with you John There are many stories about voice in Corona. what stood out to you what's your experience Ben and how that's impacted the voice industry. Generally whether it be Europe or US or globally whatever your perspective is on that. That's interesting questions. At the beginning I think we covered it. In like end of February or like mid. March. I was a little concerned the odds because various like building for assistance like Alexa Google Assistant. is still very often seen as to some like innovation. And so what I thought is that companies now that they're not sure where market is going in these uncertain times that they budgets for this and that's this all of these developments, wiggins slowdown but it feels like at least when we're like when I'm talking to other industry professionals, it feels like that. There is love optimism One might related might be related to. People being at home more using Alexa more I. think Catholic early say more about this. The other is that more and more people now see the value of vices not being just like saving time for example, but then also being germ-free technology that you're like there was this one them all by. Pico. Voice thing queered they have like the voice enabled elevator of, for example, all of these different applications these. Are. Pretty exciting I mean we're still in the early days regarding this, but I definitely emcee that more and more companies are thinking about voice experiences the go beyond building. Games Alexa. For example, on that go beyond marketing Alexa skills, and think about k. what's what could the health benefits of filling filling voice and Tad's Free Interactions Look like A great point eight is thinking about that when. When you look at voice, you mentioned this idea is works experiment for a lot of businesses and it might have been coming out of their innovation budget and you see some sort of really big disruption that's hitting revenues profits, and therefore discretionary spending. We would see we would normally expect these type of special projects beside line but in fact, what we're seeing is a lot of there being accelerated. This. Very interesting to see an I thought some of that is definitely kind of a self fulfilling prophecy of the industry that you're like, Oh yeah. Alexa has been slowing down a bit at least it felt like this in the scale store Kayla look into other ways that we can build exciting experiences but it also feels like that more and more companies that haven't been in the industry in the voice in the treaty are also looking for like how to deploy was experiences now. Whether it be touch free or it just be for a really convenient way to interact. Catherine Yon just mentioned you. You're sort of background and focus on the consumer. It will bring you in here a when you think about the voice view the voice brew lands and Cova Nineteen. How do you come out on that? Yes. So there are a couple of things I. Love. I love to talk about I. You know there have been lots of reports that have indicated that there's been an uptick in voice assistant usage and that's great for the industry but I think what's even more interesting is that the data showing that people are trying more things more things they haven't done before with their voice assistance and I am definitely seeing this. You know through the Lens of voice brew the engagement with forcetruth emails has been up significantly through You know since the start of the pandemic and March and also the volume of subscriber emails that I get has exploded in recent months. So people are at home they're trying things they're running into issues and they want help solving them or they're just excited that something new work. Then they wanna tell me and they get in touch. So it's you know it's kind of anecdotal but you know I'm I'm definitely seeing more people trying more new things with their voice assistance and I think that's that's really exciting. That's really interesting to me that that you know it it doesn't surprise me that. Because people are all they're using their devices more, they're looking for more ways to do it. They've discovered voice brewed so that it's just another signal that your subscriber base has gone up Frankly because of you know it coincides with all these other things that are happening simultaneously. Yeah no that that's been great and it's also just with the existing Subscriber Base I. can see that you know people again people are at home. You know they're reading their reading their emails. They're just they're they're engaging more and I, think. Part, what's you know from my perspective also really great about this. Is that I am hopeful that this will persist beyond Kobe. So once you kind of open the can of worms of trying a lots of new things with Alexa or with Google assistant that people will now be open to continuing to do these things but trying more new things So. You know all good

"Lebron has not had that there have been years where people are like. I I think I would steph. Curry in our is like oh well we got. You know it's like Jack Still Available. So does the difference. I mean like like Lebron I think that if if you can't you're measuring like their bodies in their skills and all these things in their longevity it really is hard to argue against Lebron now but he is closer to his peer groups in Jordan swell the longevity thing makes it so hard to figure out because you know even look at the stuff. I did a thing with Mikhail We watched game seven of the buck south extinct for MBA TV. And we're just shooting the shit they're in the game we're talking about just how different it was. Were there you know. He's playing with his broken foot that they're diagnosing correctly and then they just send them back out. There you know is wearing sneakers from the mid eighties. There's no there's no sort of Dieting like all the stuff we've talked about those advantages before that somebody like. Lebron has now I do wonder if you just take Jordan from the the eighty five to ninety eight Jordan and he just gave them all the advantages people had now how long he would've played like would have been twenty years instead of thirteen. I think it's pretty reasonable to thank. Yeah he would have played two decades. It's just easier to do that now. Lebron at age thirty five was arguably physically ninety five percent what he was at his absolute peak because of all the ways he can stay in shape. Easier might be the wrong word but definitely possible like you could definitely do it like it. Seems like guys now. If their if their whole life is making sure their bodies days together they can play a real long time Really is another one so it's Like coop somebody on the stock. I can't remember who it is. But like they just a great thing where they say sorta like she made. He's the only guy who can turn on and turn it off who just never turned it off. Yeah I think that's you know that that's a that's an interesting way of looking at because they're they're the assumption is your player. Who so great that you can turn it on. Turn it off. That's going to be part of your bench that you're going to be able to flip the switch down take plays off and then come back at you and he. I guess he did really you know it's like like even when you're watching that stupid game against like the French cheap. It's like played pretty hard to like. You know artery needs to. Yeah he was just a maniac. I mean Goldsboro had a piece last weekend about they have all the shot charts. Jordan's last two years so only two years. But it's the last two bowls years. How unbelievable his mid range shooting was like he basically mastered it. He was shooting fifty five percent on jump shots from twelve feet to nineteen feet and he he'd mastered it in a way like people thought Kobe was this awesome. Madrid shooter Jordan's at this whole other level and and then you look at the shot charts of all the guys league at the time. There's no comparison. He owes like three times better than everybody else. It was surprising though on that. Shot Chart how. He's shooting percentage in the paint was lower than you would have thought though with his legs his last year he was tired. I think and it may have been a difference in how the game was officiated. You know like the the degree of difficulty in a lay up. There used to be in some kind of that if you're at the rim there's probably going to be contacted doesn't not as true anymore. Yeah I just think it there were we. He wouldn't have shot three. He would have done whatever was going to win and if he was here in two thousand twenty he would just like oh so threes are important and he just would have become the best three point shooter. He was the best at everything. There was no no thing that he wasn't awesome Matt. If it was I go do this. He's giving the best at. What are you looking forward before we go? What are you looking forward to the most the next day parts? Well I mean I. I'm not I'm not sure I don't know. Is it going to be the are? They GONNA have ten kind of back stories. Like this is going to be Jordan. Pippen Rodman Phil Jackson. A Steve Kerr backstory at twenty twenty coolidge backstories. They're going to be a krause backstory. Like have you. I'm assuming you've seen it. I've seen the first nine. Yeah it definitely goes more into the footage from that season as the doc goes along because they have this motherlode of of great behind the scenes stuff so as once they set up everybody. It moves more into that. Yeah I I you know it's just it. It's it's a little audit because of the conditions of the world dowd's like there's so much interest in this. You know there so much interesting interesting like tie your Kanye notes like there's just these limits these things that are we have limited opportunities. Now is sort of experience. Anything new that like it I I was. It was weird to me that I was spending Sunday looking forward to watching something. That's a limited engagement ran unlimited case. Watch anytime I want you know but I was so I just I don't know I I guess I just to see what it is like. I just I'm also interested to see if there's anything in here that is going to dramatically change. The Way I think about any of the involve people because when Jordan Pippen Phil Jackson dropping all these guys it feels like I have of calcified view of how I think of those people. And I've had the opinion I've had about them for ten twenty years or whatever so I'm curious to see something actually shifts that yeah. I think that was what was so surprising to me. After the DOC came out with these people that were looking at Jordan just completely freshly like oh. I had no idea. I didn't know because I feel like you and I 'cause it probably anybody else. Who is there? We just Kinda knew this stuff but then you realize oh you know. We're getting older and every year you get older. There's another year of people that just tableau idea. You know it is a I mean like some people are just more fascinating than others. I gotTA check some a friend of mine. Said how many athletes who didn't murder anyone could you make a ten part documentary about? It's pretty small list. We started talking about is like Cabernet. You'd like us six episodes. You know it's like six hours of being up of like pejoratives like if this insisting was just about your I would be as interested as I am about the whole team. I do it. Ask One quick thing before you leave. I was listening to one of your other podcast. Hello and you had mentioned that you secretly signed your wife up for survive. Yeah okay. Here's my question. Did you tell you get it then or would it be like honey? Got Some News. You could be on survivor if you watch. I told her I did it after you get. What was your reaction? She was like what did you do that and I said I don't know I've always wanted to be on and she's like I would get voted out in three days. You know. I'd go nuts if I couldn't eat I was sick. It'd be great. That's exactly why you should go out. The fact that bends reaction makes me think she will go on selected like the the normal. But it's something that would be like. I'm not doing that. I don't care how much money you are automate. But when she's like I think I'd lose. It means part of her things she'd win. Well we've always joked about it because she'd be amazing in the challenges and I I do think I think she could navigate a lot of it. I think she'd be really interesting contestant. I know she won't get picked but it's just been ever since they created the show we've always joked about. I'd have ill and then why. Why won't you could pick? I think that that you know maybe Jeff crouse would go. I would love to have beloved one. Be You come out of that situation. Happening we were joking about when the loved that loved on episode that it would just be our dogs because she likes the dogs more than mere the kids right now because we're all trapped together so despite here's here's your dog. Willie like she'd be the happiest to see. Willie I did fail. We watch the loved one episode. Last week I always. I don't understand the family's fly out there in some weird location right there. I don't know where they'd Fiji. Or wherever the hell they are always eating g not right. That's yeah they kinda because there's less about sort of the mystery of the area now it's like here. We are so flying cross country C can be tried it out for the loved ones episode. Mike at the spend an hour maybe two. Maybe maybe if you win a challenge you get to stick around for like five hours. And then that's it like back to the Fiji ritz-carlton Wherever they put you up the flying back. I don't know if it's worth it. It wouldn't be a long slight. It would be tough like not to do it like if your wife got selected for this and like like. I'm just going to send you Kobe or something like that. Going to be real shock. You know it's like us. They've had years where you know. It's like somebody's friend the kids it's clear either. They didn't have a great issue with their parents are not married or execute Eat when someone gets on survivor do they. Do they ask like who? Would you like your loved? One should be the Hafner. Yeah so for me. I'm not going. I don't have time to fly across country. Just see my wife for an hour like I I would just send like one of our kids are no good. They could so she'll be happy to see you anyway. I got work to do. I can't find cross cross country. Do the slow boat should jog for an hour of time. I'm not doing that. Although look was one of the situations where the the love one compete in the challenge. That that'd be good for my family will but wouldn't you feel some desire to be involved with that? No because I would have my daughter do it. That'd be amazing now. If it was my my daughter would kill. It should be great. That'd be a big win. I hope I hope she makes it. It'll be the funniest thing I although do. They have survivor anymore. Survivor canceled out of. How did they do it? The next two seasons I.

I think from about five to ten tomorrow night at Miller parks living guessing the enthusiasm for the brewers. This year is going to be significant so come on out similar park and join us that will be a blast. Hey, real quick little bit of housekeeping. I gave the address for the memorial fund for Brian Rodriguez. The DPW worker who was killed in a hit and run accident. The address in the story that I was reading from his actually incorrect. He cracked address for the Brian Rodriguez memorial fund is nine five one five west national avenue, west Alice, Wisconsin, five three two two seven the address in the story that I was reading is actually incorrect. So it's five three two two seven these code for west Alice. And again, it's nine five one five what's national avenue. He can also drop them off at all landmark credit union location. So if you can do that, please do and to honor the other person who was killed in the line of duty last week in Milwaukee before the break, I kind of set this one up with with this. Question if you can decide what you pay for your food at a restaurant. As little as you want as much as you want. How do you think that would work out for restaurants, too, long term viability of a restaurant? But if you don't know Panera bread experimented with that as part of their. They actually have a couple of different names of their franchises want to Saint Louis bread company when his Panera and as part of their Panera cares program. And the idea is is that people are coming to their restaurant. And there's about a dozen of these things all across the country. And you can pay as much or as little as you wanted for your meal. And one by one these restaurants closed and tomorrow. The final one Panera cares. Located in Boston closes. Now, the idea was to you know, obviously help people. It was a they called it their social experiments or tests of humanity their their founder set in a Ted talk. What would people pay for it? When people come in and value it, and it appears to answer is a resounding. No. And if you think about this, it's kind of a noble idea. But I don't know what base my company's reputation on something that really is unsustainable. Think about it. You got really really love a restaurant to say I'm going to go into a restaurant. No prices. And I'm going to pick a number, and it's going to be more than whatever. Expect to pay in most cases, people aren't going to do that. It's not the model that guarantees success. And now we find out years later the last one's closing tomorrow. Know suffers from stuff like this all those employees that work at those restaurants. They're no longer employed. They don't get paychecks. They need money to get money for food. The jobs is there route to do that. Maybe I should have thought about that. And I'm a fan of I liked their food been in their restaurants. Many many times I wrote my book sitting in a Pinera every Monday morning about six thirty AM for about a year. Big fan. But this idea is is rather silly now. I am fan of of restaurants, generally who saved for maybe. They save a table for people that maybe can do that's a homeless person I've seen that before I've seen that work. They designate a day where people can do something like this. And I have no problem with that. But if you're in the business of selling food to make money as a company, you better think through these things a little more carefully. I got nothing against Pinera. Love the company love their food. But when you do stuff like this, you got to think about the longterm implications to your employees. I. It's kind of this rush to wanna do something seems like a good idea. It's in their name. Panera cares. Of course, they care, but people don't care as much as they do. And in the case of these restaurants now the last one closing in Boston. Awesome. Italy they failed because people aren't going to overpay. They're not in some cases, either gonna pay what their food is worth. What do I know about people from sixty sixty years on this planet? They look for bargains. They tried to get on the cheap side of things, and you show me a restaurant. That's gonna let you what you want. I'll show you a restaurant is probably not going to be in business that long and clearly that's the case with Pinero great company. Great food dumb idea. More next WTMJ attorney, Tom Nichols,.

What's going on there David. So you'll listen to exit good point about it's hard to know sometimes how to cover very low running stories as opposed to break news to his. But the economist, my own magazine, we put this on the cover a couple of months ago. There is a absolutely appalling human rights crisis onto way in the fall, west and region of sin Jang which is basically. Home to a large number of millions of weakest, who essentially took people look like Chinese people didn't have the same language, the mostly Muslims, and because of phase Chinese phase of separatism and Chinese probably exaggerated phase of terrorism, but they built these labor camps in reeducation camps. And the numbers are very, very hard to assess because. Reporting incredibly haunted to Incheon Jiang without getting people looked up, not just giving it into foreign jealous, but certainly credible reports self in a potentially hundreds of thousands of people logged in reeducation camps without trial for crimes, like crimes komo's, like having phone, some of the broiled having visited someone abroad having an Islamic app on your smartphone when the police put your smartphone into digital Rita. So you're listeners? Absolutely, right. This is a chronic lung running, very, very grave. Human rights crisis. It's hard to know how to weigh those against. Some of them will break news. I guess that's a judgment. All of us have to make it on business all the time. Well, I suppose if you're a weaker, it is very urgent. I mean, if you're if the Chinese are using the the justification of protecting against religious extremism to imprison, perhaps starved and tortured people simply for happy having Muslim apps on their smartphones. I mean. Isn't, isn't this something that the global community should be paying more attention to. It absolutely should I, you can see a difference in seven countries approaches. So we have seen, for example, the German government being fairly vocal about this. They go policy now that they will deport people back to China who we is when the Chinese requested. It's a big issue in Turkey which has very close ties of religion language with the with the weakest. The tragic truth is that I suspect that if this were brought to the attention of the Trump administration, the idea of weighing in on behalf of Muslims, accused of extremism by the Chinese government probably isn't top of the the American mind. In fact, in recent years, the Americans have tried to win Chinese support the stuff that America chasm by saying to the American sank. The Chinese we could help you with tracking. For example, Weigo's he go to fight with the Taliban in Afghanistan, treating it as a kind of Pacino for cooperation on counterterrorism..

"Point, for our customers that was huge we felt like that give and take you know was in the benefit of the customer and ultimately you know the the right choice may through it appreciate at the end. Of. The day will you kind of have the best of both worlds because, obviously packaging is very very important, which you get satisfaction for the first one right with the burlap bag but? Then, after that you get to have the price point and sustainability at the The forefront of dined moving forward so you got kind of two birds one stone And then when. It came to that indie gogo campaign when you knew let me say that over and then circling back to when? You, actually started the, indeed go go campaign any. Advice to having a successful campaign yeah I think I it's a lot more challenging I know, we initially, planned in terms of like all the ducks to have, in a row I think is watching one of your episodes on launching, an indigo, go about how you really have to have the branding had the product the pricing if you want the whole campaign to. Be successful as opposed to just really having the whole thing be a science experiment think that's probably the biggest thing that we learned is the more preparation you have going into the indie gogo the more you're going to get out of it and the more successful it'll be as a. Whole, as opposed to thinking you can just kind of discover things along the past. Yeah which doesn't really work out as well because As you know The consumers are looking for something specific they need, to be captivated and that's only gonna happen If that preparation and planning is happening on? The, front side of did you. Have the products. Already or was he had the idea of okay because sometimes companies do many do, we had we. Had some great mentors. That have given us advice as well along the way but we. Did we had the product we've had people behind friends and family that had tested the product so we felt good. About the products even though we weren't sending it out yet at that stage for indie gogo we could at. Least show pictures and really be confident of the product because it, was in a good place Wanted, that you've mentioned that the mission is, so important to tampon tribe and emceeing a. Really really, big push especially in our generation of entrepreneurs who are wanting to have purposeful companies, and consumers and customers who really want to invest and purchase from purposeful company as so tell me a little bit about that social impact component of tampon tribe and and why it's just extra meaningful and really at the end of the day helps your business as well yeah definitely I, think that is you know where you can combine you know what you're? Passionate, for passionate about what you're. Good at where. Your strengths lie and then being able to help others whether that's in the products, that we provide. I mean I think. At the most simple level to be able to provide affordable organic. Products I feel we feel like we are doing something good just in in the business where running and to be. Able to take that many many steps further and give back in a way where we're helping knows that are Less fortunate. Than us that really don't have any of the resources and and all the gifts, in education that, we've been given that's huge and that's a whole nother layer that's so meaningful that's extremely important for us so being able to work with whether it's working with. Women's shelters to give back and donate feminine hygiene products that's really important for us I know that you're starting an ambassador program tell me about that and maybe some of the other. Key, ways. That you're really getting the word out yes so we're, very excited this fall for the, fall twenty, seventeen semester we're going, to be watching our, university embassador program so that's really mean, there's a lot that goes into that all.

Don't stuff at meetings involves things that I told that. They. They want me to do that I don't necessarily want to do well this is going. To be fun. Starting tomorrow We are, going to, go live on Facebook live for the first. Couple segments of the program I think the the plan, is to try, to do it in almost. Every day, basis so when you are here during the news you will at. Least partly potentially be on on Facebook live. So people can see your smiling face, your starch freshly starched shirt tie and all those things I've always been, told David face for radio four to I don't believe so that that's exactly it so you to spread the word around the. News department but you know on an almost daily basis and. Again this is our plan when you do this kind of. Trial run. We have gone Facebook live on different. Segments we, used to pop culture corner stuff but we're going to. Try it out first segment or to. Generally speaking probably between twelve o eight when the, program starts to twelve thirty or so we're going to be, on Facebook live every day and of course check and read and, respond your Facebook comments just another. Way to make it easier to take, in WTMJ all right if you follow me Me. On Twitter it is at Jeff Wecker six, twenty you've, got an indication of where I was last. Night and I I admit I geeked out as a, general rule I, don't I don't if I'm. Emceeing an, event or an ad an event I don't get my picture taken. With the person who's there is a general. Rule just because it's not supposed to, be cool that you do that now I've made exceptions to that when, Jim Lovell who was the Milwaukee guy who was in charge of Apollo thirteen when he was here a couple years ago I. Was MCI this event you bet I stood in line to. Get my picture taken Jim level but in general I will. Do it. So let last night My very dear friend Devon and, I we're going to go to canton Ohio next week to see Jerry Kramer admitted into the hall of fame. But there was this special event in, downtown, Appleton, I was. Talking about this with Jerry baiter it was, a, fundraiser, for, this museum. That they. Have in downtown Appleton and soon as I got done with work ran out picked up Evan whipped by my house took the dog. Out and then we got on the. Road got to apple about five thirty the event was from like, six until, seven thirty or so in this wonderful. Museum downtown. Appleton got. It was very intimate probably only I'd say eighty to. One hundred people there and Jerry Kramer did this very intimate conversation talking about the Packers glory years and afterwards there was an opportunity to have your. Picture taken and meet Kramer and I took advantage of that so if you follow me at Twitter Jeff Wagner six. Twenty you get to see me and my, buddy Evan Jerry Craig just, great I. Am I'm looking forward to seeing him go into canton Brett, farve admission at, the hall of fame. Couple years back and This is got great stories about Vince Lombardi and stuff if you. Are a Packers fan this is just an absolutely great opportunity and I loved loved, loved loved, downtown Appleton is saying to Jerry baiter it's been years since I have been there and it's not going. To be years before I go back I was. Just amazed at all the stuff they have. Going on down there all right we have an abbreviated show oh this. Was the other kind of cool thing so, we're driving back we. Leave about eight o'clock from, Appleton's who were driving, back so I'm listening to the ball game all night and of course. You've got the brewers they fall behind Ford and nothing after three run home run in the second inning and you're sitting, there going oh gosh, this is going to be another one that kind of breaks and the brewers comeback with a big win got, back in time to see it to the game most of the way back and just what a great win. Resilient team and get the third game, in, the, series against. The Washington nationals is this afternoon it would, be, great, if, they could. Pick up. This game their game and a half behind the Chicago Cubs it'd be great if they could pick this one up Because they've got a. Tough road trip coming up they go to San Francisco and then to Los Angeles as I said coming. Out of the all star break I think the the two weeks if the. Dodgers series. The national series at home. And, then the long road trip to California it's. Kind of a make. Or break time of the season I don't think the brewers. Can can win the central division or necessarily guarantee. A wire wildcard space over these next. Couple of weeks but I think they could certainly make their life more difficult if, they didn't play well and, that's why, today would be a great game you can hear the coverage here WTMJ all right before that though this, is a story that started breaking yesterday and it's kinda Coleman nation of of where we have been going over the last several weeks President Trump following through on I guess campaign promises in an effort to try. To I guess protect the American steel and aluminum industry announced number of weeks ago that he was going to. Start putting tariffs on imported steel and aluminum now part The problem with this is we can't make enough steel and aluminum, in this country we don't have the facilities to meet all. The demands so as a result we have to import stuff but he indicated he was going to start putting tap tariffs on steel. And aluminum as a result cost of stuff for are going to go up in response. Europe China South America has started pudding retaliatory tariffs. On things that we export and it's. Been particularly hard in, Wisconsin, they've gone after motorcycles we've talked about that a couple times essentially if you import a bike a Harley Davidson motorcycle made in America you send it to Europe now, as a, result of these retaliatory tariffs you're going to, have to, the consumer would have to pay about two thousand dollars more that's crippling the market you've also had agriculture hit especially hard I was mentioning. This yesterday We have incredible surplus of meat right now that we're houses containing frozen. Meat are packed to the gills because what's happened is. You have all these, farmers they produce the meat, and it's ready to be shipped overseas well because of the tariffs retaliatory tariffs people aren't buying as much of it overseas they're finding other markets and so we've got, a, surplus of of this what, do you do with it in Wisconsin. The tariffs are hurting us we make. Ginseng we export cranberries. It's hurting us up and down the line, it's something that Scott Walker, talks about something that Ron Johnson talks. About so recognizing that in. Particular, American farmers are getting hurt what President Trump announced yesterday is as a result of this trade war which he previously said was. Easy to win I. Understand that farmers are getting hurt so. What I'm going to do I wanna take twelve billion dollars in tax payer money and. I want. To direct it, to farmers who've harvests. Have been hurt by the tariffs all right all right the terrorists are hurting you I want to give you a bailout I'm gonna take twelve billion dollars. To do this well on the one hand I guess it. Has, this appeal you know, you you don't what the farmers suffer but the question. Becomes why are the, farmers suffering well they're suffering because of this trade. War that we launched in my? Opinion stupidly, in the last two months. Ron Johnson who, is a supporter. Of President Trump Ron Johnson is out there. In the most specific terms saying that this is this is crazy he. Says this is becoming more, and more like a Soviet. Type of economy here commissars deciding who's going to be granted waivers commissars, in the administration figuring out how they're going. To sprinkle around benefits all right and. Other words we've created this problem And now we're going to give people. Money, we're going to pick, winners and.
