Qualcomms incoming CEO on what he really thinks about Apples M1 Macs

"Welcome cristiano. Thanks for joining us on the podcast today. Very happy to be here. Obviously you had some big personal news. You renamed the new. Ceo starting to stummer congrats on that wall. Thank you so much. Incredible privilege for me to be named seal. I'm very honored butter. Yeah we'd love to hear a little bit about What are your first priorities. Going to be as the incoming ceo. Weren't you begin. A lot of people. Ask me this question. Would i like about about this transition. We're doing a qualcomm. This is a story of continuity and it's about keeping qualcomm. You know technology. I company company continue to lead the pace of innovation but having said that We have been doing over the past few years really transforming the company into beyond mobile in oh always had a very strong in mobile business our core business also the licensing business but we started to grow into automotive starting to grow into analog with our ephron sorta grow into the beginning of that so the priorities will be continued to execute on this incredible opportunity. We have ahead of us. Which is five g which is also making telecommunications or communications in general no longer unique to the mobile space but across every other industry and really capitalized on that opportunity. Cristiano to that as you take on this role what are some of the biggest challenges facing qualcomm. Wh what keeps you up at night. The number one challenge we always said in. Our businesses is very unique. We have to reinvent ourselves every year. We have to win the flagship. You know over and over again every year so you know i think all of us qualcomm. It's about making sure hours was focused in driving technology roadmap to become complacent continued to drive the roma ford. And you know right now. If asked me what keeps me up at night right now is supply chain grads as having the semiconductor industry. I think it's the result of a lot of success in general about an acceleration of digital transformation across a number of industries. But this is causing a lot of stress as the supply ching was not prepared to deal with the growth. And but you know we're navigating a very happy to the position we have right now. When is the supply chain issue going to end like. Is this something that gets resolved. Pretty quickly or is it something. That's going to take a long time until like samsung and tsmc. Some of these other companies can build mark factories. No look if will get better at the end of this year we have line of sight and even our scale We're very fortunate very well position. And we have line of sight of this going to get result with entity or but you're correct Part of solving this problem is to a celebrates didn't build out more capacity and that is about building buildings in new clean rooms in new equipment. The way to think about that shara is When depend hits There was an assumption made in general across the industry that that the capacity for semiconductor. You know for if especially if there will be recession given pandemic mike you know was it was good in the reality. What we saw was the opposite the enterprise. Transformation of the home people buy new computers by new printers. New wi fi systems upgrading broadband companies had to connect their assets. So we saw celebration of. I'm not in digital transformation across the board Paper money disappear. That's people started digitize. You know everything payments Even a small business and we always said the mobile has been very resilient five g we said Into very beginning we state our five g numbers even the beginning of the pandemic said. If i've transition is still going it's important. We ended the year the high end so all those things happen for a capacity that was not put in play for growth. And i think we're just seeing you know the effects of of demand in supply. But the manda will catch up with Supply supplier vice versa towards the end of this calendar year one area. I'm really interested to hear about is the pc market You know obviously this is an area that had tons of demands over the past year for laptops and other devices report working from home call comes made a big push in putting your mobile chips in. pc's We saw apple. Come out with. Its m one powered max which proved to be extremely popular How is demand for those m one devices. Impacted your focus on pc chips. Hasn't your computers more and demands like what sort of impact has the m one had on akam pc. This days is one of my favorite topics. Conversations finger for discussion look rented and talk about the specific demand. For 'em one. This is a great opportunity to talk about the trend so the pc was being transformed and we always believe welcome that you know. They'll be conversions between mobile nbc and mobile became the bigger platform. They're more smartphones. Abc's to develop. Our eco-system is driven on the mobile side. And we believe in that convergence. That's where we started. You know several years ago. I think more than four years ago with microsoft on this journey of windows on snapdragon in now recently with starting to see snapdragon on chrome os in chromebooks then the pandemic hits and would have been hit. It change certain things forever. And i am super excited about this because like if you're talking to me from a pc right now. And i'm sure you are you. And roger. b. C became a communicator device. And as people make phone calls they started make a teams called zoom. Zoom became a verb in many languages in c. now is connected became a communicator device. Camera become really important. I'll do a multimedia became important. You doing you take a break. Watch netflix the future. With five g connected disease are going gonna watch Not only video but gonna play stream games with ex cloud an amazon luna luna or google stadia and all of that and then on top of it people. That had a workstation are home. They don't have a workstation to have their laptop but using five on demand computing. You'll get access to any application that you can run on the cloud computing platform of the cloud so the pc's completely transformed in apple switching to a m one with an arm instruction set just validated at transformation. Start moving developer as fast paced. So we're more convinced an ever. Conversions is going to happen b. C's going to be a great opportunity for expansion on snapdragon and it's that's one of the first things i did after being announced to co elect was to do the acquisition of nubia s. We believe there's an opportunity for us to lead into cpu performance as well as we start to think about this complete transitions of pc to associate. So let me let me ask gonna fall on that. Because i think we might have a new but one thought on this question about apple versus talk about the long-term opportunity but were you frustrated by the fact that you have been pushing snapdragon power laptops for a couple years now. That have really gained a lot. Traction while attention than apple comes in with the san juan and one powered mac guy huge buzz postal raving about these things whereas the other snapdragon laptops will ask. We have not really gone. The best to reviews was some frustration. That did you get to go back to your team coverage thick how you do this. I'm just curious your thoughts. On the the the different reactions that though snapdragon lockups had versus those and one. Max no no not at all i. Here's how answer this question roger. We knew that we started this journey. And this journey about a windows for example which is being running on x eighty six. You know Forever when needed to introduce arm extraction sets to windows and we work with microsoft and we knew that we're still building this journey as an example for example In this summer we're gonna now. We're celebrating that you know that next latest update for microsoft windows which announced support a sixty four. Bit emulation on orm in wish starting to see the very first time the enterprise ice laptops. Hp just launch commercial. Enterprise laptop with into snapdragon. So we're at the beginning of the ramp in the way we see the apple lounge. It's a great tailwind. Because what apple did by lounging does not only validated that transition but you know moved developer ecosystem the difficulty that you have when you try to introduce a new instruction set on the pc and this is not new to to apple. I think they've been to those that. That transition twice if you look at their history and then maybe have tried in the past trying to pass the longtime ago with a windows rt and and that really only works. When you're no longer have a second class you know a platform is just the great windows. Experience in every application is gonna run in. You're going to be able to keep everything you had a windows. Any wedded new coming from mobile platform in in. We believe we're now getting to the end of this journey in what what apple did which really help brother ecosystem. Apps apple helps microsoft basically create the resolve within developer system to start doing arm native apps going forward so my answer to a question is super. Please we're super excited invalidates. You know that bats. And i think that's going to happen Not only within. You know the apple wicca system but within windows as well as google and no question when we announced a new via acquisition if you look a press release was incredible as a parade of everybody to mobile nbc segment including microsoft in google in the saint press releasing. This is great. You know so. We're excited about that. Yeah i wanted to dive a little bit more into nubia You know you guys pay. I think one point four billion for this company started by former apple engineers. Basically you know why. Why do you need nubia okay. I'll you know i'll tell you. The story in this has a lot to do with the conversation we just had about. How welcome see some. The industry transitions in how we execute on them. So the story is if you remember back in tweet g. into feature phone days and the blackberry we knew as we brought four g and mobile broadband to the seller space. The will have to become computer. She's gonna have a broadband so you need to have a computer in your hand to make use of the broadband and you're going to have a prosser we're gonna run of have an application and In we knew at that point that you didn't have a high-performance processor for battery powered device we could not get that from the arm roadmap to so so we basically put together a cpu team and we build if you remember. Scorpion was very first. Gigahertz clock. cpu in a battery powered device After that crate in debt drove the absolutely majori of the smartphone platform across. You know that time you know indoor it was growing to other oh s.'s. At the time and clearly it was squawking was the forefront really creating a mobile computing platform with our own. Cpu

Alex Lieberman and Austin Rief Discuss the Origins of Their Company Morning Brew

"Year was quite easy me. Because i didn't have to re- recruit for any jobs. I only take two classes and two other than playing a lot of fi fi. nhl and other video games. I was like. I need to do something to pass the time and keep myself sharp for my job. All right so started helping other students prepare for job interviews and i would always start my mock interviews by asking the question. How do you keep up with the business world and the answer to that question was typically something along the lines of the wall street journal or cnbc etc. And i would dig a little bit deeper. I say why. Do you read these things and the students would say something along the lines of you know. I read it because that's what my parents told me to do. Because it's a prerequisite saying while reading business but it's dense and dry and i don't have enough time in my day to read the journal cover to cover and so at some point i was like this is crazy. These kids are working their asses off to have careers in business yet. They don't have content. That story tells the business world in a fun. And engaging way right and so i started writing a daily newsletter at the time was called market corner. It was a pdf that i'd put together using microsoft word and then exported into a pdf. The logo was bearable in a bullfighting literally. Took it off google. It had the watermark going across and send it out to a serve every day over email. One of the early readers. Was this guy named austin reef and austin revealed me and was like. Hey i have some ideas for how we can make market corner better. Can we chat wow. We met up for a conversation and quickly. I didn't think to myself. Wow this is my co-founder because it wasn't even a business. It was lobby. Yeah i thought to myself is. Everyone is really good at telling me. I'm doing a great job with this thing. Edit is wildly unhelpful. To actually make it better. Austin was the only person that i had spoken to who actually gave constructive feedback on. How market corner could get better. Yeah that's when i knew. It was a complementary brain to mind somebody who thought linearly objectively and so. I brought him on his. Let's call it like a partner at the time and one thing led to another and we ended up launching morning brew together in march of twenty fifteen. I think austin. You're also a student right at of michigan. Both you guys were there right. Yeah so most people initially reading this right university of michigan and you were just alex. You're just writing short newsletter linking bigger articles about the specific topic basically. Yeah it was. It was basically like fifty one hundred fifty word blurbs with link out to the full story and then kind of this other brain food related to business right like investor of the day stock pitch of the day. That's what it wasn't the beginning. And austin you come aboard near like hey you can really do this a lot better. And here's how so. When did you decide. Like how did you get to the point where the two were like. You know what forget about our jobs. Let's jump into this newsletter thing. It wasn't an easy decision. So alex had the job lined up at morgan stanley. I was interning at molson and company. Which is a investment bank in new york city and very quickly. I realized that that wasn't the path for me. And so we wanted to be entrepreneurs we had an idea and so we thought why not give it a chance and we saw growth. We saw this grow from michigan to other big ten schools to ivy league schools to i think the big inflection point is when we soul older people reading. We thought there's something for college students when we realized this could actually be read by anyone. That was a big moment for us when we thought wow. This has potential to be read by tens of thousands but a

Author Steven Drake Discusses Working With a Flexible Plot Outline For 'The Demon's Blade'

"Now when you're planning a story that's obviously this big that spans for books. Do you do like an outline ahead of time before you even start writing i in my head. yes I had a basic outline of how i wanted the story to go. As far as the overriding structure originally planned for it to be four bucks. It's now going to end up as it's actually kinda ended up being more. It's going to be six. It's not perfect. It's not perfect outline. And i'm not real strict about it. So i know basically how it's going to start how it's going to end and Kind of what. I explore my writing is. How do i get from here to there. You know when. I sit down and ride. I kind of have an idea you know need the characters to get from point a point b but in the meantime i'm kind of just you know trying to explore the situation as i go along and explore the the characters and their relationships with each other and you know i i don't have it strictly outlined a lot of times. I'll go in and for example sometimes the way i write you know the combat in fight scenes is. I'll think of a you know something really really cool monster from to fight. And then i'll start writing. And i won't and i'll try to put myself in the place and the character and i'll try to figure out how i would beat it and then you know right that and then if a better idea comes to me later i'll go back and change it and you know it's kind of an exploratory. You know i'm i'm kind of trying to. I'm doing a little bit of x. Exploring myself as i'm writing so it sounds like you. You have a basic structure but there's room to kind of deviate if the writing or maybe even the characters steer you in a different direction

Spotify Wants To Sell You CD-Quality Music

"I'm happy to be in your earbuds because today we have a story about sound right now. You're listening to a podcast which means the audio you're hearing has been digitally compressed. The highest highs and the lowest lows of the range of sound. You're hearing have brought closer together. Compression generally make sound a little easier on the ears. Well one company. That deals heavily in sound says compressed audio is so out spotify announced last week that it would be adding an additional service to its music subscriptions lossless audio as in sound in its purest form not compressed which means music has more depth and clarity. If you're struggling to imagine what that sounds like just think back to a bygone era remember cds because they're not usually compressed cds deliver lossless audio naturally and spotify. Says it wants to return to that without you. Know making cds thing again spotify. Hi fi will be available to subscribers in select markets later this year. It'll cost more than the nine ninety nine per month users currently pay although spotify hasn't said how much more they say hi fi will let the most discerning listeners. Experienced the music the way artists intended it. The company is just the latest hop on the lossless audio train or i should say track in two thousand. Nineteen amazon rolled out amazon music. Hd for fifteen bucks a month or a little less for prime members and streaming service title offers lossless audio for twenty dollars a month reports the verge but neither rival comes close to spotify's user numbers spotify counts around one hundred fifty five million paid subscribers worldwide while amazon music. Expect to hit forty million this year and it's estimated that title only has around five million subscribers spotify says its users have been asking for higher quality audio so now that it has it it may spell trouble for spotify's smaller competitors but one big name is notably absent from the list of lossless audio providers. And that would be apple music apple. Subscriber numbers are inching up. They hit a little over seventy million subscribers last year and with roughly the same number of songs available as spotify. It would figure that spotify would wanna keep apple at arm's length hence spotify move towards something. Apple does not have and is reportedly not planning to have a paid tier for lossless music apple and spotify have been dealing for a few years in another space. Which you may be familiar with if you're listening to this right now. yes podcasts. While the term more than a decade ago a mix of its ipod and the word broadcast spotify is looking to be the latest dominant force in podcasting unclear at times exactly which companies doing more in the field. Some reports put apple on top in terms of podcast downloads and revenue others put spotify on top either way each companies looking for ways to edge away from the other when it comes to podcasting and for apple that means toying with the idea of a paid subscription service for its podcast library which has always been offered for free bloomberg reported the plans in january and says apple is also aiming to ramp up its creation of original podcasts spotify. Meanwhile plucked one of the country's top. Podcasts the joe rogan experience and made it a spotify exclusive at the beginning of this year. They also recently announced plans to roll out the spotify audience network which it calls a first of its kind audio. Advertising marketplace advertisers will be able to connect with listeners through quote a broad range of content. Spotify said in a statement. The company says the marketplace will allow creators to earn more for their work while delivering a greater impact for advertisers unquote. Podcast wars aside a lossless music tier four spotify seems to be the latest attempt to get the edge on apple for apple though lossless. Music doesn't seem to be on the horizon at least publicly. In fact apple enthusiasts media outlet apple insider said last week that during blind tests twenty fifteen listeners couldn't seem to discern lossless audio from compressed audio being played on an iphone that might mean lossless music might only be a boon for the most discerning listener. Which if you're listening to business daily as you right

Archaeologists calling it an exceptional discovery and a unique fi that has no parallel in Italy. Thus far, officials believe chariots such as this one were used for festivities, parades and possibly to carry brides to their new homes.

Hi fi so for a bit of background most standard levels of streaming of music it's equivalent to mp3 quality to better than mp three quality. So that's the range you've got and a lot of people pretty much pooh-poohing mp three now back in the day it was. It was great because you could get can email and download files at our whatever but in these cases the song files are compressed and some dads lost in the process. So that's kinda why.

"All right. Well Kevin, welcome back to the podcast. Thanks for talking with me again before let's talk about some author stuff. And before we go back to our big discussion when you were writing your book, you've said you've written throughout your life. So when you were writing this first book that you have out and you're working on the next one's what if you learn that you're doing different. Well, I think one of the things I learned was what it is that I really like to write the most money. So yeah, I've written a lot of longer epic style fantasies and I enjoy writing those but I think what I discovered when I push myself was that I liked writing things that were a little different from that the at the end of the world is is a very different kind of book. It's definitely not Epic phone number. To see but there's a lot of magic and there's some alternate history elements to it. And when I looked at kind of what I thought I had planned to write versus what I had already actually written was that it had those elements the the alternate history and the magic wage more so than say A Game of Thrones style Epic Fantasy and I just realized oh, that's really what I like to write. I also discovered that I like to write poetry and short stories, which was something that early on. I I didn't think I could ever write a short story and I certainly don't think I could write poetry. So are you planning on releasing any poetry? I actually have I have one book very short collection out called an important Sky down. And available and in all stores that is all focused on very realist poetry. But I've got some books that I am planning to put together. They're more speculative poetry as well as eventually another collection of realist poetry. So do you think that it has hurt you at all to do the Syfy the fantasy sci-fi type and then a book of poetry cuz I know that's a big discussion a lot of others have their like, oh, I'm only doing this pen name of fantasy. And then I'm going to do this other been named with sci-fi. So it doesn't mess up the also Bots or you know, what other people like do you feel any conflict of problems with what you did? I don't between the type of fantasy that I write and the Poetry I feel like wage and my readers are probably reading widely and reading multiple genres and multiple types of things and poetry is just something that some of them will like home. I understand the the the desire and I probably actually will write under a pen name, maybe some of that Epic Fantasy because As I actually don't want to pollute what's written under my own name with an I use the word pollute which sounds degrading but but it's I don't mean it that way. I just mean that wage. Yeah, I don't want to confuse the the readers who come to Kevin J fellows looking for a certain type of fantasy with all of a sudden off some other epic or epic dark type fantasy because they're just not going to be the same readers right now. Are you going to keep those separate or you going to say Hey, you know, I write under these names with these Styles or genres or just going to be like, it's a whole nother person. I have no idea who that is. I'm going to start with that. Um, yeah. It's a whole other person that I don't know anything about them. Eventually. I can see a day where I'd say. Well, hey, I also wrote as this person birth. These books but while I'm trying to establish both, I'm going to keep them

In my opinion a lot of the comments that were made on the reach a racist and sexist comments to me were not because melvin is or is not a racist sexist. it was sardonic humor and just coking.

Spotify's New HiFi Subscription Tier. What Is It?

"As i'm recording this spotify just wrapped up its spotify stream on event in which it announced a bunch of stuff including new tools for creators. Monetize ing options even an ad marketplace for podcasts. Which might be too in the weeds for our purposes. Although i reserve the right to reassess that later what is probably more interesting for normal. Consumers for at the moment is the fact. That spotify is launching a new subscription product. Later this year called hi fi that will offer cd quality lossless audio. Quoting the verge. Spotify has done small tests of higher quality streaming in the past. But now it's going to launch the feature more widely with the caveat that it'll be available only in select markets and pricing is yet to be announced higher quality streaming has apparently been among the top requests from its customers as it stands today spotify tops out at three hundred and twenty. Kbps audio amazon rolled out amazon music hd in two thousand nineteen. The lossless plan costs. Fourteen dollars ninety nine cents per month or twelve dollars. Ninety nine cents per month for prime customers a premium over the standard amazon music unlimited service title. Which has supported high resolution audio since its very beginnings price slightly higher at nineteen dollars ninety nine cents per month for the hi fi plan title offers. What it calls title masters that go up too. High resolution ninety six kilohertz twenty four bit audio smaller services like cuba's have also sought to appeal to audio files with lossless streaming apple music on the other hand still lacks any kind of lossless streaming tier despite apple selling the very high end airpods max headphones and quote which you have to figure might be about to become an untenable situation.

Do you miss stand up or are you happy for the break. I definitely miss it. I have done one show. It was back in the pickup truck. Oh yeah arrive in shows. It was i mean any other time in my career.

Any answer that contains the word resin is the right answer was no other byzantine and the sound designers for the two thousand and fourteen version. Say the roar differently. They captured sounds at frequencies that humans can't hear and pitched them down in the studio so they sound like they're fine. This is for you lori.

The Failed Shangri-La Plaza

"The star studded high production surrealistic musical sitcom shangri la plaza was originally produced as a pilot for b. nineteen ninety ninety one season but for one night only the network decided to air it as a summer fill in on july thirtieth nineteen ninety and that half hour made history. Well kind of in a really weird bad way. So we're gonna talk about the sitcom shangri la plaza. All of the weirdness that occurs around it to talk about cop rock. That was abc. Same year that this came out. It has a very cop rock field. But what is what are your reactions to this the intro. I could not tell you what it was about. If you pay me any amount of money it so abstract i guess and never mind the cheesiness. that's i expect that it's one thousand nine hundred ninety experimental. Things are a little bit weird. I was just saying that. Like i guess seinfeld came and say yeah television at that point but i could not tell. It seemed like a place. Where maybe there's food and abc live. I don't know what is highly. It's hard to tell it's it all began really with nineties. L. a. mall culture shangrila was inspired by that and it was filmed on location in north hollywood strip mall at the corner of vineland and burbank boulevard. In north hollywood california just went for it. This set a strip mall was built on top of an original strip mall which is where the problems really begin. This mall on mall design was the topic of a washington post story in nineteen ninety emmy award winning art director. Jeremy ray elton best known for his work on playhouse was responsible for the set sign. And that's not the only high-calibre name attached this very confused project. Broadway legend terrence man. Who played leads in. Layman's and cat stars as ira bondo machine mechanic who works with his brother. George jeff jaeger lanes musician love interest. John remain in seinfeld. Speaking of seinfeld at the mall's bodyshop. When amy molloy hardin yes jan on the office takes over her shitty husbands donut shop. I think after he dies. Both brothers are instantly. Smitten future smallville. Star nexium sex cult leader. Alice mac a very young l. Plays amy's precocious eight year old daughter in her only on screen acting role jazz. Great carmen lundy plays the donut shops. Only employees savion glover plays a wrapping teen commenting on. What's happening kind of greek chorus style. An oscar nominee. Chris sarandon plays the plazas landlord. It's for something where it's just a pilot of a throwaway like experimental pilot like pretty heavy hitting actors. The show itself was helmed by horror sci fi writer director nick castle. You may know him as the co writer of john. Carpenter's state from new york. And he played michael myers in the original halloween. The composers were craig sapphire or sedan known from his work. On cheers and mark mueller. Who wrote the theme song to duck tales and jennifer pages. Nine hundred ninety eight hit crush it just like there's a lot of talent involved in this project and it just gets lost along the way while working together on projects like the last starfighter tapped the trio discovered. They had a common passion. The three of us loved old musicals. Knicks dad was a choreographer who had done royal wedding and many other movies sephardim says and the opportunity to make a musical finally happened. When cassel's pal jeff sagansky became the head of cbs. He was looking for something new. Some fresh ideas for cbs program lineup castle savannah mueller who themselves the schmaltz kings were creating in la based rock opera and unique written and composed by credit on the pilot the or inspired like i said by the strip malls around the mall culture in the late eighties early nineties. Kind of creating something colorful and also their love of musicals. It's like a hat and a hat on a hat. The pitch to cbs was also pretty weird. The schmaltz kings cleared off sagansky desk and with the keyboard and two speakers. They perform songs from the show in character.

Amazon planning a wall mounted Echo

"Moving into the smart home amazon plans a wall mounted echo. According to bloomberg in i okay. Y'all know that. I have been adding things to my house to make it smarter like the infrastructure. So i i actually just added a fin. We'll talk about that in a week or two when i when i start seeing results but added a fin water monitoring device. I added a device from a company called ting that tracks. Basically you plug it in. It looks for electrical fires. I have added an quanta. Water heater controller in product. And so what am i saying. I'm saying these are doing for the sexy devices there. Yeah the unsexy but was interesting here. What i'm discovering is my first night in the finn was like we have detected a very weird thing happening in your house and they sent me a notification but my phone was on. Do not disturb. Sign my house wasn't actually flooding. But i was like you know what i need. I need like a panel. i know right. Maybe like the equivalent of a flashing light. That's like hey these parameters are happening in maybe shakeup deal with it because if it were really a flood. I'd want to know and i don't have the fancy finn that shuts off my water for me so actually thought this was kind of neat because it would be nice to have like a command center that you could add a glance. Look and be like okay. Everything's functioning normally. Yeah i mean we rely on our smart displays quite heavily in our house. Even though i have my phone with me all the time. Not everybody does. And it's really handy to just see something pop up that you know you need to know this right now without looking for your phone or missing a notification. This is actually one of the big downsides of my transition homekit. there's no smart display unless you have an apple. Tv and you're watching tv so bloomberg is saying that amazon's working on this. It's ten or thirteen inch diagonally measured Obviously can control smart devices. It'll have the typical amazon services from music videos. Video chatting with a camera built in should be pretty skinny thin unlike some of the smart displays. Because this can be wall mounted and bloomberg says it's could retail for between two hundred two fifty. Maybe by the end of this year. Anything can happen because this is just them. Hearing from sources we amazon has new official comment on this. But i think these ecosystems are overdue for something like that a lot of people used ipads they mount ipads to their wall and use those. Yeah so you wouldn't have to do that and you could use your ipad ipad actually so

Can Tampa Bay Win A Second Straight Super Bowl

"Well in just his first season with the team brady has already brought a title to tampa buccaneers controlled. Much of last night's thirty one to nine super bowl win and brady is poised to keep winning saying after the game quote. We're coming back. You know that we do know it. And i personally love it shared. And how do you feel about is brady. Started his second dynasty in tampa skip out of his tour to detail. And if you made me say yes to say no. There's a reason why no team had repeated and sixteen years because it's hard to do and you see. Injuries are big part of this. So because we saw what happened to chiefs offensive line. They lose basically three starters and they're not the same team that they took to the super bowl the previous year. They're not even the same super bowl that would that finish the afc championship game. So injuries player key role in And plus a lot of things have to go well the injuries during the course of the season. I don't believe the pandemic. I think we're getting more and more vaccines arm and President biden was talking about last night. Say i expect the pike house for super bowl fifty six. Hopefully that's the case. Where is so fi here. Oh you're be out. I thought i'd be right over luma and plus get if you think about it. They got shack bags. A free agent. Labonte david i believe. They bite price themselves out of contracts tampa although they might be willing to take less money to come back to people. It's with jack man. Considering that he was an undrafted free agent and leave any money on the table of. Aren't they david that might be something dominant. So leonard fournette and tonio brown gronk. I believe a couple of those guys you can get back on the cheap but skipped the only have thirty guys on the contract for next year. The next is a that is forty two in the nfl their fifty three man roster only thirty the contract So who comes. Who goes is so hard to repeat because the turnover is so great now what we know right now for the most part. All the coaches are coming back. Tob old didn't get a job by relent. We didn't get a job and so for what we can see right. Now get the coaching staff. We'll be back in full. There was some speculation. That bruce arians if they won this one would would see the the head coaching to talk balls and maybe either being the background or walk into the sunset. I think this was such a headache experience for him at his age. He'd say i gotta take another shot. Hey could you remember. Meal did that and he later regretted he came. Back out of retirement ended up coaching kansas city. Yeah because he felt he made a decision out of emotion. That was the wrong decision. So maybe a fist back a couple of months but it's hard to repeat. There's a reason why there have only been in an full of teams now in the last thirty years. That's ever done it because it's so hard to cobb was dated. We did it and the patriots did it.

An Apple Ad-pocalypse For Everyone?

"You know about those changes to ad tracking that apple is going to flip the switch on on ios. Soon you know how facebook has said this will hurt small businesses and also them quite directly. They've also admitted. Well as this ad pacalypse creeps ever closer. There is increasing chatter about how big this move might actually be for basically everyone let me hit some of the most recent takes for you i. What prompted me to lead with this. Today is that in their earnings last night. Snap had to warn that. The coming changes by apple to idea a could have a materially adverse effect on their business and it wasn't just snap either unity also came out and said idea changes will hit the pocketbooks of all mobile game developers quoting cnbc. Unity software said in its earnings report. That the changes will affect the way mobile game developers get and quote how they optimize lifetime. Customer value and quote although it's difficult to estimate our guidance assumes idea changes begin in the spring and will reduce revenue by thirty million dollars or three percent of revenue in two thousand twenty one. The company wrote in prepared remarks for its q. Four earnings report snap chief financial officer derek. Anderson said the apple changes would present a risk of interruption to demand after their implemented quote. It is not clear yet. What the longer term impact of those changes may be for the top line momentum of our business and this may not be clear until several months or more after the changes are implemented. He said quote so coincident with that. I know that this is long. Reads day but i encourage you to check out ben. Thompson's free article from strategically this week because it is the most sober and i opening look at this situation that i've seen anywhere thompson did a qna with mobile marketing analyst. Eric su firt and he had some interesting things to say about. Apple's true motivations and all of this and how these changes could ripple out to affect not only game developers but things like chiappa fi and the smaller businesses on that platform. I highly highly recommend. You read the whole thing. But i'm going to quote two parts for you first up. This is ben quote the thing that is always kind of weird to me about this. Is i think people underestimate and frankly i think apple underestimates the degree to which apple's growth in services revenue growth in. The app store is because of facebook and that facebook and apple have had this very symbiotic relationship. facebook has done. All of apple's dirty work and apple has harvested thirty percent on the back end just by virtue of owning the app store. The question i have is. Is it possible. That apple is shooting themselves in the foot here and their services revenue actually takes a meaningful hit because they've destroyed the engine driving it and they didn't even realize it because they actually didn't understand facebook's role in this and then this is eric's answer quote. I don't think so. I think apple very much recognizes the role that it plays in the app ecosystem which is the distribution engine for apps. And i think that's what apple doesn't like. I think apple sees that the app store has basically become irrelevant as a point of content discovery. It's basically this kind of frictional annoying moment between clicking an ad and installing an app almost all discovery happens via ads or word of mouth. And i think what apple is doing in this in recognizing the power that facebook has in terms of influencing which apps become big which apps are popular. How people are using their iphones. Essentially in recognizing that apple is trying to regain control of that because if apple cripples advertising which is doing mobile advertising this is all happening within the context of all this stuff. That's happening on the browser which we don't need to go down that rabbit hole but apple has been the instigator of all of that too if apple cripples mobile advertising than the app store becomes the primary discovery point for apps again and apple decides how people use our iphones apple decides which are the most popular. And by the way. That's a position that apple used to occupy twenty twelve twenty. Thirteen apple was kingmaker. If you've got featured your company valuation might increase by one hundred million dollars it was really important to make that pilgrimage to apple. Go to cupertino and beg for featuring please feature as please give us the headline featuring because that would make such a big difference to our company then in that way apple got to influence. What kind of apps made and how you made them. So my sense here is that apple wants to regain that control and quote and then from further down in the piece. This is ben again. The great thing from google's perspective is they get to copy everything. Apple does which completely benefits them because apple wants to kill cookies. Google's like that's fine. We have the browser. We have the app store and we're justified in doing blatantly anti-competitive things because we're just copying apple. The apple. google duopoly is really ruling. Everything and this is eric's response. Yeah google silence on this issue has been really intriguing. Because i think they've got to feel like a little bit stuck. It's like well okay. We're going to slow copy apple on any privacy initiative. It does because we don't want to allow apple to create a competitive advantage around being seen as the privacy centric mobile platform but at the same time they run an ad network so day can't come out and demonize targeted advertising. Because well that's how they make some substantial portion of their money. Ben interjects here. They're being sued for antitrust. And this is so blatantly. Anti-competitive and eric responds right exactly. They've got a fine line to walk. And i think they've you to a very shrewd approach. Which just like you said. Kind of copy. What apple is doing but doing it in a way that is not a full manifestation of that and quote again read. The whole thing cannot recommend it highly enough are we all of us in the tech ecosystem facing an ad pacalypse

Remembering musician and producer, SOPHIE

"We want to spend a couple minutes remembering pioneer music producer. Sophie who preferred not to use gendered or non binary. Pronouns died in an accident last week at the age of thirty four so fi did a lot of solo stuff but also collaborated with some pretty big names. People like vince staples is and charlie x and even mcdonagh here to talk with us about this loss and help celebrate. Sophie is sasha geffen. They wrote a book called glitter up. Dark how pop. Music broke the binary and they wrote a profile of sophie in two thousand seventeen for vulture sasha. Welcome thank you for having me. So sasha what do you think. It was about the music that sophie made. That was so uniquely appealing listening to sophie song as like getting immersed in bespoke universe where everything is tailored to be maximally sincerely pleasurable sounds great. It's like being in the opposite of sensory deprivation chamber it's like being in a sensory overload chamber but in the past most and i think it's like being in a place where you can perceive everything in touch everything experience everything i'm sensory level and also everything around you is also touching and perceiving you. It's like this exchange that feels really fluid and vibrant and alive. Neyla what i hear in the music is this desire to take the most irresistible parts of pop songs the most most delightful and fun elements in really clear out space around them. Zoom in on what made those sounds in those moments gesture so infectious. Because hank sophie recognized that there is a lot of power in the kind of music that can bring thousands of people together in a room. That can coordinate. People in that way that kind of ecstatic collective effort. Vinson's that happens. I think we can't really talk about sofi without talking about the fact that sophie's a trans person so if he was a trans person. How do you think that showed up in sophie's music something that it can only really speak to my own experience but ver- me something that's been part of the process of figuring out how to be a person who was trans is being really hungry for surfaces that kind of resonate with my core and that's what i here in a lot of this music is looking at the surface internalizing it and then reflecting it in yourself and becoming your own image in a way that is satisfying and rewarding. Obviously there's that line in takeda. Cry it just goes. You're inside his your best side. Which is like funny. I think i mean that song in particular kind of flirt so openly with like the sentimental or like the corny but but really lands it in its vulnerability is so. How do you think sophie would wanna be remembered. I think sophie would probably want to be remembered by people taking care of each other and looking towards joy and finding you know finding that opportunity to to dance again someday. Sasha thank you for sharing about sophie's joy and vulnerability and thank you for sharing your own join vulnerability appreciate yeah. Thank you so much for having me like. I said it's been helpful just personally to kind of like talk through some of the stuff you could do some processing. Yeah i mean it just. I think it's useful to talk to understand the great emotional sway that this music hold over a lot of us how powerful it was. And that's ounce

Katz Kiely Talks about how frontline.live helps the NHS with PPE and why they have open sourced the platform.

"Can you tell everyone is listening. Walk is frontline live and then how you first came about forming it. 'cause you did an amazing campaign and support early in the lockdown so what frontline live is an online live data mac which means that any healthcare worker here is on the front line who finds themselves short at ppe. And therefore is at risk of getting ill can either tweet a request using hashtags hashtag frontline map. Hashtag the postcode so we can make sure they're actually at a healthcare organization not just collecting. Ppe reason and then hashtag what it is they need or they can fill in an online form of frontline dot live and we will then do two things one of them. Put a dot opin on a digital map so that people can see with the need is but also now because of a new partnership two other organizations the healthcare workers association and met share supply drive. It means that we basically have a warehouse of free. Pp which all partners of what rated long and hard for by raising money and getting donations. And because of a partnership with hermes it means that as soon as somebody on the frontline requests vp. Because they're shows of it we can get free p. p. to them within forty eight hours. How did all of this started happening. I moved back to my house in sheffield so in lockdown home alone on zoom call with a friend of mine who is a senior us. I'm saying i can't get a delivery. I'm gonna have to go to the supermarket and she said okay. I can do one better than that. I'm going into the hospital tomorrow. We don't have any masks of probably be dealing with people with covert line flown. Can you imagine that feeling so then. Of course i became a little bit hyper aware of this particular problem. And because everyone on every social media channel that doctors nurses health care workers saying we have p p that's bound on the other side there's this incredible uprising of entrepreneurs who assisting forward money three d. printing visors. That's companies like brutal and burberry. And i'm barbara who've pivot their entire system that can make pp to give away so we've got people desperately in need and scud going without pp's any of us would put up with and people are trying to solve the problem but they couldn't see very other were and so then. I hear on the news one day. Burberry making scrubs. There's an nhs trust because they didn't have to contact burberry have had to go through some ministers in the government to ask them how they conduct bribery. Oh for goodness sake. This is ridiculous. Because i'm all about technical innovation so i thought it can't be that hard surely to find a way of making it easy for people on the front line to say i haven't got this so that people who've got supply can get it and quickly. Yeah that was my beginning and a guy who used to work with who used intel is at ucla now on run did to him. About how hard would it be for us to be able to collect data and put it live on a map so that people can see what's going on and we chatted for awhile for about an hour and then i didn't hear anything back from him midnight that night i get any email. He's already got his team on it. I'm like oh so then fast. Forward six weeks. I've had about fuzi. Volunteers who've sat forward the most incredible people people who well known in the industry. People go better things to do with their times. they busy. Who sat for just getting this. Were absolutely and we're going to make this happen so six weeks later. We launched the service in the first three month period. When all of this stuff you're talking about how they've got. The timelines has stepped forward giving his full page. Spreads is giving us full page. Adverts ocean outdoor gives us sixty with the biggest digital out of home screens across the country. So we can put stuff out there. Not one penny changes hands. A snapchat talked to the general manager. he goes. Yeah wherever we can do to help. We'll do a national campaign. you give gives your assets. We'll sort out view. I have never in my career. Repos talk about purpose and actually fears purpose. You will look forward to enjoy getting out of bed in the morning. But i've never seen anything like this in my life. The sad side of that is that the nhs in my humble opinion and i we were talking about this before. It's the jewel in our crown. It's something that we should be quite rightfully proud of. And then by an example we partnered with united health who have about one hundred thousand frontline. Health co worker members talking to them. And i'm saying i keep hearing stories from people on the front line that actually the idea of people tweeting their requests is really difficult because nobody does speak cow and people are being told not to use the service from my mouth. It being told not to use it. Yeah people are being told if they speak out about the fact that appea- shortages they will lose their jobs. Assist crazy if you can't do your job one wi fi. Find another way to do it. That's most entrepreneurs will okay. I can't go x. y. And found a way round it exactly and the system should be set up in a way. This is about somebody complaining about something. It's if you don't have you're putting your life at risk. Six hundred forty doctors nurses have died. Because there isn't enough got enough. So basically i'm finding out it's absolutely known as endemic that people inside the nhs all tolls not speak up about things and told they will lose their jobs so we moved it from just twitter to having a fool where people could Report anonymously if they were too scared to speak out off the fifteen hundred. Ish request for p. P. i reckon about eighty percents of them were done anonymously by people who was scared to speak out and some of the comments they left on those forms. Joss person frankly interesting. We've been up from. You has improved or got worse vitton. What's your gut fail. It's been interesting because there was a point where there was a story or other media about the fact that management we're turning healthcare workers to be quiet and then matt hancock said in the commons. This is not true. people will be protected. It's definitely from my perspective. People are less likely to speak out and obviously we had a bit of downtime where we registered frontline is a charity because there weren't as many cases and he gave his time to consolidate and build townships so we decided in september. Do a to find out whether or not people in healthcare organizations feel confident. They're going to have enough p. p. to see them through over this next crazy time which is become crazier guess. How many percent said they felt fully confident. They'd get enough. P p twenty eight. Wow wow wow wow that super-low eight percent of frontline healthcare workers believe they will get enough to keep them safe during this time that scary as a number. That's scary.

New Cameras for 2021

"So in the photography industry. I think we're off to a good start at least in terms of options for new gear. You'll see that. The variety of equipment. That i talk about today is pretty wide. I mean there's a wide variety of stuff and it's funny. I'm starting at the top of the list with the most expensive. And i'll be working down the list to downright affordable and everything on the list. is interesting. There's nothing on this list that i don't like now some of that. I can afford some of it. I cannot but that doesn't mean that we can't talk about right. there's nothing we can't do a little window shopping and that's exactly what we're gonna do right now just so we know what's going on right. We know what's going on. You know that way worthy experts when people ask us well you know. What do you think of the new this say for example the leica m ten p. reporter. That's the first camera. I'm going to talk about right now. This was inspired by lancashire history in connection with press photography so the m ten p. reporters a special edition range finder camera featuring a streamlined. Body design along with a characteristic dark green paint finish now. I don't know why it was characteristic. I don't know why that word is in the description but it's their price just left it out. Don't you think. The camera also supports a highly durable scratch resistant coating in his fitted with kevlar trim for even more rugged appearance in enhanced grip now this cameras parv limited edition of only four hundred and fifty units only with like us. I look at them i go. That's a cool camera would love to have it. But it's out of my price range. This camera i look at it and all sorts of things start to happen to me. Start to have these views going back in my past when When i was a kid does a young photographer. I dreamed of traveling the world and shooting for life magazine. And i could see this like a hanging around my neck as i went from continental continent reporting. You know all the good and bad things happen in this world. This is a very durable looking camera. I i love the idea that you know the finnish extra durable that they have your kevlar for the grip. I mean all that's neat. I love the color of it. And i can just see it with that. Thirty five millimeter f to lands on there. I could do anything with that camera that it gives me that sort of feeling now. One thing i might not be able to do with the camera is pay rent or buy because it's eight thousand seven hundred and ninety five dollars and that's for the body only probably that thirty five millimeter lens cost about another three and a half grand or so but for that money. Here's what you get twenty four megapixel full frame cmos sensor so a nice full frame camera the latest leica image processor an optical viewfinder and a three inch touchscreen. Lcd iso one hundred fifty thousand five frames per second shooting built in wi fi. They redesigned the shudder in. They added a built in level gauge. Now this is a stills only camera so no video with this so you're going to have to have a video guy with you as you travel the world to document everything that's going on because no video with this particular leica and again. It has a beautiful dark green. Finish with kevlar trim. So this thing is a beauty. I would love to have it in my backpack and just pull it out and shoot whenever i wanted to look cool and get great shots as well right in great shots as well so it's available now for eight thousand seven hundred and ninety five dollars body only so if you already have like a lenses then okay makes a little bit more sense for me. I would be starting from scratch

Doing we like to say make doing the right way in the first place. David lynch movie. When you think about it that's now twenty five years old hollywood. That's that's forever. So it's to to remake it and show a new one anyway The sci fi channel miniseries was also very successful and follow the plot quite well but their their budget was limited. So there's only so much they could do Paramount is now Hoping to do a classical interpretation of that that would be faithful to the book. And and thanks to peter jackson and the lord of the rings movies. Now everybody's convinced that you can pull it off. Special effects are unlimited and and if we can get the right script and the right scope of peterberg has already signed on as director. We've got a couple of well known big name producers. The script is just being finished or a draft has been turned him brian. I haven't haven't seen it. We we have met with with some of the team and and talk with him. A little bit but So far we're keeping our fingers crossed and hoping that this one does the trick but Regardless just the fact of the movie coming out is going to draw a lot of attention to franker original novel a lot more readers for for just rate work side talks. Look at the winds of dune continues. In a moment. I'm michael shanks of s g one. And you're listening to side by talk. What's also interesting is your edge of the world In your first book in the terra incognita series That's really i mean. We talked about it before. That sounds really really cool. You're kind of exploring. Like i guess the best way to describe it almost like a mythical historical fantasy kind of thing. Yeah it's it's about sailing ships and see monsters crusades. It's all it set in a fantasy world. That looks a lot like our fourteen hundreds at the age of discovery so people are exploring th the edges of the map. They're trying to find New lands that new continents and There isn't a lot of magic in it but there is still real sea serpents and a little bit of magic and and to me. This is just the same sort of thing in my epic. Saga seven suns.

Her let's talk about the dune universe. As i always say with one of our tour guides kevin j anderson. So how are you by the way. I'm pretty good. This is one of those Feel like you're either drinking from a fire hose or swimming upstream with a against the rest of the salmon that are spawning or whatever you want to use as a metaphor but you know. We're i'm a day. Eight right now. Brian. i've been running around quite a bit. I've still got another eight days of book signings and interviews and drop by signings to do and then i come home for three or four days. And then rebecca i leave for the writers of the future event. That's four more days out in la. Then we're home for a few days and then we go off to dragon con for all of that frenzy. So yeah and you know. I'm kind of a mountain guide to be by myself hiking on the trails and sure kind of longing for colorado for at least an afternoon around. Now but yeah. I don't blame you there. I work hard enough to write the books brian. Her works really hard. So we you know you have to do something to make people notice the book when it comes out. You can't really do have to chop that's right. That's very true. The thing about this particular book. The winds of dune. I mean we had talked about this one. Because you're you're you're saying after we were talking about paul of dune that we're working on the next one and that's essentially About lady jessica and In kind of giving her so that's what. The winds of dune is some interesting things that are happening for her in this particular one right. It's a little more broad than that. In fact after paul of dune our original title was jessica of dune but realized that. There's there's really so much more to it even though she is kind of the the fulcrum of the story in this because so many of the major events revolve around her for. We felt that the title. The winds of dune was a bit more representative. Showing how how epic the story is because it's It's a direct sequel to dune messiah. At the end of dune messiah. Paul atredes as he's kind of a heated tyrant as empires is tearing itself apart and and he's blind and his beloved chani has has just died giving birth to his is two twins and paul just turns his back on everything he loves everything he's created and just walks off into the desert sort of throws in.

"Star Wars characters, and so long are part of the great strengths fictious. One of the reasons science fiction continues to go from strength to strength as it has such A. Large. Community supposes. Absolutely, and it is a fellowship that is very strong. Very diverse. Everyone is welcome into it. I've never seen anybody turned away at any kind of fandom function at just the opposite I've seen him embraced. It's like I've been saying his lately I wish world would learn from this a little. It'd be a better place if if everybody if everyone treated each other like they do at science fiction conventions where there's just love and affection all over and. Yeah. There's always some people that do what they should, but it's very, very few very few. So it's cool thing. I couldn't I couldn't agree. Before, we go I do want to ask you about your students What's the level of enthusiasm for riding you know from from what you've seen in your classes. I would say it's very high I think. One of the one of the jobs I have actually I mean we. We are small crater department at rollaway but a really good one. Again, you expect me to say but it's true. We get many MO- students applying into his than we can take. So we ended up selecting the best is about forty get in every year. And they get a lot of personal attention from us on to my colleagues write what you could call mainstream or regular fiction on I'm the guy who looks after the kind of science fiction fantasy enthusiasts. So I get to work with with young kids who are already by by version they've got in, they've clearly clearly talented. The main tossed I have I. Think is apart from doing all the usual teaching things in showing them. Talk we'll keep walking them through the strategies for making the process better and easier, and so on. I think the main challenge I have is a lot of them is what we were saying earlier a lot of them their imaginations have been shaped and kindled by film and TV, and they sometimes come in thinking well my novel and it will be a bestseller and then it will get bored by Steven Spielberg will pick it up a huge movie out of it and I have to say to them if you want to write a movie, you should maybe you should write screenplay because as we were saying earlier, a movie is a different thing to an awful Toronto awfulness. To the best of your abilities you need ready to be in love with words and how words function. But they're all enthusiast they'll work really hard and they only credibly imaginative and and. It's atomic spending time with them. That's real. Nice. I mean. You literally could be influencing some future great writers and that's a noble. Noble. It's great I really WanNa thank you for being on the podcast. It's been a delightful conversation and the The book is called the compelled with illustrations. So I think people like me who liked to see that will get more out of it, and it looks like Yup. It's available where you think Amazon the Almighty Amazon has it. I'm sure wherever you get your books you can get it as well and it sounds fascinating I really WanNa find out what this compulsion is all about. Thank you Tony.

Hunting seasons, Hannah eleven who you might recognize from the magicians is Kelly who helps a unicorn in need in hunting season where she mentally at the beginning of. Say Kelly's fragile but I think there's a I think she's a strong character at hot but I think she has low self esteem and we see that through her cost with addiction and I think she's really trying to get herself on the right path and and you know she's got this job. It's not where she wants to be in the end but it's it's giving her something to do. She's kind of making ends meet by she definitely dreams of something bigger and I think. I think where she in the moment where she feels, she could help the Unicorn. And there are things we edited with the script but for me that Merman is halley believing that she could do something. Like, that yeah in a positive way. Really help someone I. Think She's really isolated herself. She works at this remote gas station. Late at night she she keeps people at arm's length. That it's it's sort of a beautiful and tragic moment that she thinks she can help this creature that has come to her for help. but then she is able to, and then then that is a turning point right and I think for the unit. They're both wounded in the sense physically emotionally mentally and hunted So they are good spirits. Yeah. I, find each other yes. Director? Worked on supergirl you mentioned magicians, witches, show I've covered and talk to those folks. Really, from the beginning. So she's used to doing female centered kind story Yup. What did she bring to the table? We'll firstly Shannon was recommend me 'cause. I acted in a couple of episodes, magicians and I got into nurse, some of the trump's team and I was talking to them about making a Unicorn Horn and they said, hey, you found a director yet and I hadn't. They said, you know Shannon who was in the camera team originally on. Skins. No, she was to start directing photography but Shannon's an excellent camera operator. HAS DP DP. while. And Yeah this friend of mine in crops you should talk to Shannon. She's incredibly talented and she loves horses. So I met with Shannon and right from the beginning Shannon so empathetic and I think. She's wonderful with male characters as well, but she just comes from such A. Full hotted place like she has such compassion for the characters even times when I was like. I don't like this about my character of that and she was so. Positive about it and I think really understands. complexity in characters searches to bring that out ms able to eloquently. Achieve those in a non judgmental confrontational way social. Yeah. Very Open personable and in her work as a human. Yeah. So easy to work with and you could just tell with the camera for like obviously Shannon's been around them so much coming up through the camera department, which has like ten fifteen twenty people ended at any given time. The cheese so. When she speaks people listen and they. They take in what she's saying in such an easy way.

Welcome to Fi talk and if you go to Washington Post Dot Com you notice and an horny gay who is my guest? Today has an article about you know Hollywood's been through a tough time before and we can weaken learn from the nineteen seventies. Isn't that right at? Yeah, and it kind of hit me by accident in a way I had intended to write about the nineteen seventies. I was actually going to look back at the Year Nineteen Seventy because the fiftieth you know the fiftieth anniversary of the year nineteen seventy. I was sort of looking looking at it looking at the movies that came out that year and thinking a lot about the decade of the seventies and sort of how legendary that they were both artistically into the movie business going through so many changes and I realized like wow. You know in many ways they were facing similar challenges as facing today clearly, not a pandemic but. By that time audiences. Were really turning away they were not going to the theaters they were having terrible terrible years at the box office. And in similar ways, they were facing a lot of social change. The. Culture and political Political statements and political activism found their way into the work and the work was responsive to that, and so I just thought well meeting, there's an interesting parallel to be here. So that kind of the journey that I took a story. Yeah, it was an interesting time films that came out of nowhere probably the top of the list is love story nobody figured it would be the huge monster hit I have some problems with the movie And actually became a trope where the. Guy Marries a woman and she gets cancer and dies and now was done to death. After, this movie came out but this was the first one. So but how you mentioned Ali McGraw looked like like the girl next door. But I thought her acting was a little suspect despite some actually pretty clever dialogue. Yeah. You're right about that. I mean I had forgotten how.

"That's a whole `nother matter, but it's definitely something we cannot identify. And they moved at a speed that was faster than and we're capable of moving, so it's something to ponder for sure correct correct and I think to the degree that the media can help the public stop inflating the empirical reality of UFO's with the extraterrestrial hypothesis. Think, that was a long way towards helping them to begin to look more seriously, and and the The New York Times Articles The Washington Post editorials on this these events. I believe have helped have helped in that regard. Absolutely, aren't we take a short break? We're talking about the film Eleventh Green with its writer and director Christopher Munch. We'll be right back. Hi Christopher Judge of Stargate. St. One and you're listening to Fi. Talk back on Sci fi talk as we chat about the Eleventh Green Very interesting ufo film where we have Campbell Scott as Jeremy Rudd. Reporter is on a trail to find out exactly what's behind evidence that he found in his home that links President Dwight Eisenhower to possibly UFO's and maybe even alien contact, so it's a whodunit it. It really is a whodunit, it and a mystery, and those are interesting stories to tell whether it's your phone or not. And that was approaching wanted to take with this, or did you have something else? Yes that was the approach I had also thought definitely to present this story. In a matter of fact, in realistic way than we've seen in some of the more genre type of film, making that you know has come out, so the the goal really was to allow us as an audience to be a fly on the wall in these matter-of-fact conversations about presidential extra politics, and also to to interweave with that a certain amount of information about the story of our countries. You could call it a premature intersection with Off World. After the second, World War, and and how that information became secret ties and utilized in industry, and in effect now you have so many people. Clamoring for or a more formal releasing that information disclosure, and whether the whether or not that. Comes about I. Think will depend largely upon the citizenry itself, and to what degree each of us individually is willing to look inside and truly. Acknowledge what our relationship to the phenomenon is and to ask the hard questions. Look at our own shadow rather than projecting. Outward on the government in quotes, and it's never really been the government quotes. It was always anticipated that this information need needed to be a truly autonomous and needed to be separate from the government and the executive branch so that plausible deniability of of the existence of these events could could be maintained, so that's why you find very few people who have had access to the information, and the fact that it resides in you know highly secretive is highly compartmentalized. Special access programs. Yeah,.

"Hi Welcome to season two of bite. This is Tony Tiller parenting an apocalypse. It's it's not the same way that you know how it works. Any views usually two to four minutes long but sometimes they can be a little longer only when you when you live long enough all kinds of strange things very right in saying that the Greek heroes the original superheroes in part because of the hopeful nature of genes vision but also because of its message of diversity and inclusion since two thousand five I've been hosted on Lipson a mayor I was able to find my podcasting legs in gross. I fight talk earlier. This year I was approached by spreaker and established podcast host. Become part of their family in a program called spreaker prime. It was a tough decision to leave. Lipson me I've been there for so long but in the end the offer was too good to pass up the good news is I've created a series of new podcast focused on specific subjects in genre entertainment. My Regular Sifi Talk. Podcast will always be there that I produced two thousand five but there's some new editions sci-fi Talk Bite will now get its own. Rss Feed featuring my short form interviews you know and Love Sifi Talk. Indie film explorers the filmmakers who toil to make their projects outside the studios. I talked to some of the actors. You may know that work indie like Katie Matz for a film called the machine and I interviewed her on the red carpet at the TRIBECA Film Festival in two thousand thirteen. I had full body makeup because we wanted to have freckles and we wanted to cover the freckle so I had to do everything My entire body covered a makeup and the hair had to look different so I had to bleach like my and I had to go back and forth between the characters because our scheduling was difficult. So I couldn't. We had to make a completely different with being able to go back and forth and The machine always very slick bath with Avis like softer of hair down and try to keep those differences but in no makeup. I think took like hour and a half like at least two hours every day. Another series is sci-fi talk scribes and that features genre authors who create in this digital landscape and it could be New York Times bestseller were authors. Just starting out you'll hear people like. Csi Creator Anthony Zi-qar who told me about that groundbreaking series plus his novel series level. Twenty six but we certainly are taking chances and trying to trouble the best way we can and try to take advantage of the power of technology until in good stories. We really believe that we got a lot of things right this time. Hopefully you know America and the world enjoys all of our our hard work. We'RE TO DO BETTER FOR BOOK. Three like we have a solid solid piece of material going forward and he's type of phone calls kind of coverage is really really important to us. They'll thank you very much. Sci-fi talked the first season has episodes starting from nineteen ninety four radio days to my podcasting press the cave is a DC universe. Podcast as interviews live action to animation. Here is Sarah Douglas. Who was Ursa in Superman films with Christopher Rees? What I'm going to say is something that I think I admired that you in terrence did during during the film which I know wasn't really in the script is that the two you kind of worked out something between Ursa and Saad to show that you were a couple even though maybe there's an occasional my dear that he says otherwise it's pretty much unspoken but you the way you would walk together and just you know look at each other and stuff that really sealed it for me. Yeah I I have to give Terri full credit for that in the very very beginning right at the beginning he said to me. There's not there wasn't a great deal to separate us from through the US links. You know we pretty much look the same same we we we we we just clad in and for the black. Organza retype things. We have findings boots. But you know we we. We're not. There's nothing that says we are. We are different from anybody else and he said we have to make sure that everybody knows that we're different than that. We are from a from a different place and and he he said we should. One of the things we should do is is in our movements. We shouldn't walk in unison with the fluidity. So that you have to say. I'm giving you seven out of ten for supporting that because not many people really noticed that except they were aware and it was something we did. We did work on consciously to walk in unison so that we sort of float together and animation. You'll hear special programmings and interviews from past and present animated movies and series and stars like Kevin Conroy. The key to me for playing old bruce in this in Batman Beyond and also in the prices is that he's he's got all the passions of young bruce all the will all the desire all the needs but his body won't let him do it anymore. It's just holding him back and that frustration what that frustration turned into. What is that duty visit embitter? You does it anger you does it make you wanna do even more good or does it push you to either track capsule teacher interviews from the Star Trek universum enterprise discovery like this from Patrick Stewart the extent to which stopped not just next generation but the next generation of our particular way has threaded itself into popular culture and in North America and the significance. It seems to have for so many people it doesn't diminish that I have been encountering this feeling which is deeper than affection that that is is stirring in some way. I know I mean Bryan Singer has it. John Logan has it. You talk to them. And there's a there is a a mandarin attitude when they talk about the series which goes beyond. Just something that That they've been amused and entertained by an I. I used to think I could explain it. I had theories about it. I don't care to try to analyze it. It simply become now for me. My Age and stage of my create. Deeply gratified line. Many more new podcast. Or possibly you might say. I'm kind of playing around.

"To Cadillac live or is the cat dead? They The engineering's answer the the practical answer if you will say well. There's no way to tell it's fifty fifty. You Open up the box and sees the Cadillac or the cat dead. The proper answer from a quantum mechanics point of view. Quantum physics point here is The cat is both alive and dead. And we'll be fixed in one state or another when you open the box to observe now. Basically that's that's where it amounts to and if you can wrap your mind around that and accepted you are ready to go on to study quantum physics now. It seems to me in a way while I did very well in my Studies that also if you can wrap your mind around that and accepted your also on your way to being able to write fantasy. That's not a. It's not as derogatory as it seems. I mean if you look at the the papers that are being presented in theoretical physics today. Most of them now. I don't claim that to try to keep up with that sort of thing at all now but most of the ones that I read seemed to be in many ways closer to theological discussions then anything that can have even Attention show relationship to what one might call the real world. That is I suppose my engineering side My professors in structures in mathematics and physics quite often told me that you know. Be Sure you you've got to be loose say once you'll be loosey-goosey when I was if I was loose and thinking and that sort of fantasy mode willing to accept anything did very well in that area. The other sort of thinking the more hierarchy engineering Thinking is not conducive to Quantum Physics. It's not conducive to writing. Fantasy is is gonna be any more sequels. Yes yes I'm afraid so I There'll be several more folks. I know the last scene of the last book I've known the last scene of the last book since the very beginning I have known since the beginning. How all of the major storylines resolve themselves? It's simply a matter of getting to that point. I no longer give a number and say well it might be this or it might be that. I used to say things in the beginning. I remember saying well. I don't know I hope I can finish it in five or six books. I remember saying after the first book and people came out and said Jordan has promised that it's going to be done. These degraded this six. No I didn't promise I said I hope I can finish in five or six And other things are the same way later. I said well. I don't know it might go eight books. I don't know seven or eight bucks and I found seven books mentioned in eight books mentioned. Somebody said eight books on counter flat of the Lord of Lord of chaos and somehow slipped by me no. I haven't promised anything it several more books. And that's all I'll promise and I will finish it as fast as I can. No more than that tend to discern deviate from like your pre destined course because of some things as you're writing into no not with the main points. I at set certain main points things that I want to say things that I want to happen but I like to think of it as if I were going across country and say that I'm going to visit mountain a mountain be Mountain. See Mountain D. but I may decide to go to D I then come back to a and then I will go over to see and quite apart from that finding the way from one mountain to the next. It depends on what I discovered in. Between that's very fluid with these books it becomes even more complex in the planning part of it because that map that piece of terrain with mountain. Abc indeed is level one and then as a level two with mountain a one B. One two IT'S A to B to C TO IN D. Two and then there's a level three without nate three V three so forth and level four and level five and what happens in level? One influences what happens on level to which influences level three and or if I do this level one then it means that I can no longer do that on level two or this other thing on level. Three at it also means. I'm more likely to do this. This particular thing on level four and level five so. There's a good deal of flexibility at the same time. I have a framework that I know. I'm going to keep what they find details within that framework Arthur. That's always open right up to the end and it's a little bit of fun to to sort of see how some things turned down. Well it keeps keeps everything from becoming static if you plan to rigidly. Then it begins to come out wooden if you don't plan at all then you have no idea where you're going and you don't know what to do which direction to go flounder around good bit until suddenly you say. Oh yes. Well I can go there and that makes the writing. Amorphous and well. I'm writing something like that or reading something like that. It's sort of like eating pillow. Ask Him all of all of this series which you have a personal favorites. Whichever book I happened to be writing at the moment because I is that why is it? Just because it's another step in the and the processor perhaps but once. I finished a book. I really consider myself done with it. That's done. It's out of my hands now. I'm finished I'm onto something new and what I really enjoy is the writing the creating of the book. Obviously I'm going to take more pleasure in the book that I am creating rather than one that I already done and finished. That was yesterday's pleasure books. The admits incredible detail. How you sort of Mesh everything together. I mean just just you can see the planting of all the different societies and all these different people that can meet in these this world. I think that's part of the attraction of people just like it's it's interesting place to see and people like people like to go there and every as they continue It's I get even more interesting and more detail than it's just. It's it's like all the great fantasy or miss It's it's it's of like when you hit something good you create something good People just want to keep coming back to it and and maybe it's a very simple way of of Sort of Saint Party reasons wire series and so successful. That's what it seems to me at least on one level. Well thank you. I don't know what else to say. Great author the wheel of time series has sold over twelve million copies in North America alone to the last I heard ready go. Entertainment had purchased the rights to make the wheel of time into a movie or a series of movies. But as of this time I have not heard anything definite as to that if you have emailed me at Sci Fi talk dot com and I'll put it on my blog on my space and give you credit of course but hopefully he'll Will recover and get better while the world is a better place with the imagination and talent of Robert Robert from one of your fans.
