"That unfreeze themselves. They have technology that. Like say you go on a plane on a on a cold day right. They d freeze the plane. They do that and helicopters. This technology to in sweden as as matt mentioned to me that are are able to unfreeze themselves and so the those yep the windmills. I'm sorry to say helicopters. Yes so it's just all ignorance and performative. I pre- performative attacking the left. It's a way for them to go around in circles and attack the green new deal. But here's tucker carlson with his snide dismissal and continued propaganda effort so unbeknownst to most people the green new deal came to texas the power grid in the state became totally reliant on windmills. Then it got cold and the windmills broke. Because that's what happens in the green new deal you're without power. Millions are still without power tonight. Several has dot have died now the same energy policies that have wrecked texas. This week going nationwide. They're coming to your state okay. There are so many lines there. I don't even know what to say. Totally reliant ten percent greg abbott just said i don't know who's program comes on i think tucker comes on after sean hannity but if you watched beforehand you would see that his own guests. The governor of texas said ten percent and all of the data their own agency are saying that no no no. This is not what this is not the main cause of this. This is a good example of sam. Says that tucker doesn't really believe what he's saying tucker doesn't really believe that the green new do came to texas already. Yes exactly he doesn't. But again i mean what gets him off. Sorry to give that in to use that terminology but what gets him his his buzzed going in terms of of the work that he does is basically hitting those cultural points that resonate with his audience. I mean that's what he is. He's an emotional actor or he occupies a space that allows viewers to feel a certain emotion about things and that's rage and that's hate of change and that's what he likes to sparkin people. That's what fulfils him. Career wise the sort of intellectual right. I mean yeah just to put a to add to that. Propaganda is not about the facts or details about the attitudes created so tucker doesn't care about the details of if texas actually has some sort of texas. I mean we don't really have time to get into it. But there's the texas tribune article about how much they've ceded to the market on things and at the scarcity of energy because it's good for certain people with money that like to trade these things and by the way this has been happening over the weekend this kind of propaganda effort and it's gonna continue in cable news is still going to be talking about most cable news non-fox and the news in general kinda trying to to squeeze every last drop out of the trump era and cunanan talk about that constantly and then in a week. Forty percent of the country is going to believe that wind turbines frozen wind turbines and green energy caused this disaster that we're seeing in texas this deadly disaster. Where nearly thirty people have died that we know about already people freezing to death in their homes and they're going to think that's because of green energy because the media were so silent and also because the right wing media. They did it quick. They got themselves together. And this is the effort that they're putting forth and it's effective. Unfortunately for all of us we are going to take a quick break and when we come back we're going to be joined by john fetterman so folks. I think you know that i am. I am a little bit. I've gotten a little bit obsessed with dental hygiene obsessed. But i've gotten very very conscientious about it in my older years as i've gotten longer in the tooth as it were i think that's you get what i'm saying there so What do you do you brush right and you gotta brush. Well you floss. This is hugely important and boy. Do i have a great new flooring system. But i'll get to that in a second. Well what about chewing gum. Yeah gum is completely underrated when it comes to better. Oral health the ada. The american dental association recommends chewing sugar free gum for twenty minutes after meals. Well so what. Do i do to maintain this entire program of dental health. I turned to quip. That's right you know quip. They make the very cool toothbrushes that are super convenient to use and electric and so they clean your teeth well and they also make what i happen to think is the greatest invention i have ever seen which is a the The the foster they make a non disposable flaw sir they have not had me read about that yet but they sent it to me. And i'm sorry i'm obsessed with it. Well they also now have gum quits. New gum is actually good for your health and it comes in a dispenser that is gonna remind you of one of those pez dispensers. Yes it's awesome. It's like It's it's like a peds dispenser to describe it. one press. The gums comes shooting out. It's awesome my kids. love it into chewing gum. I only let them chew sugarless of course and his pez dispenser drops out makes it fun. Also i can carry it in my pocket. And i don't have to worry about pulling the gum out and seeing that it's got all sorts of length in it and stuff like that quip gum can help prevent cavities. And of course it. Fresh breath chew at twenty minutes after eating sugar. Free as tooth. Friendly xylitol has.

"Today's program. Welcome everybody to the show We have a great show for you today. We started a little bit early. Because john fetterman a very promising candidate for the united states. Senate is going to be joining us at twelve fifteen and we want to accommodate that. Because i'm very excited about that interview. he's a true progressive and has a real shot in pennsylvania. But firstly we have to touch on the inordinate amount of propaganda coming out of the right wing When it comes to the power outages that we're seeing throughout the country in texas specifically greg abbott. The governor of texas went on fox news last night blaming green energy. He got the memo from breitbart from the wall street journal from fox news from all the right wing media that has decided to basically coordinate and attack on green energy that is entirely counterfactual not connected to reality at all. He got that memo and recurred regurgitated at last night cry contradicting his own energy. Department on sean. Hannity's program s oil old-fashioned oil and coal against nuclear energy. Either i'm not against wind turbines but my question is if these rolling blackouts and you got freezing weather. I mean and not reliable. It's use to lose it. What good is it so in this shows how the green new deal would be deadly the open. The united states of america texas is blessed with multiple sources of energy such as natural gas and oil and nuclear as well as solar and win. But you saw from what trey said and that is our win in our solar got down and they were collectively more than ten percent of our power grid and that thrust texas into a situation where it was lacking power and we got to cut in here. Eighty seven percent of the loss was down. Two things like natural gas pipes. freezing right. thirteen percent was because of renewables. Eighty seven percent is because fossil fuel stuff. So i mean he says ten percent there but then continues to blame it purely on green energy and then keep going. We'll we'll break it down after power grid. And that thrust texas into a situation where it was lacking power in a statewide basis that was power that was spread out by that organization the organization that you were talking about as a result Just shows that fossil fuel is necessary for the state of texas as well as other states to make sure that we were a will be able to heat our homes in the wintertime and cooler homes. It actually shows the opposite dude because your own energy department as i mentioned before. The clip rolled stated the outages were primarily overwhelmingly because a frozen devices at natural gas and coal facilities and even nuclear facilities. Not because of the ten percent that you side. I mean he steps on his own point there by pointing out that it is a tenth of the energy that they produce and part of the problem too. Is that air cot which is texas's power grid. It was set up to avoid federal regulation because the federal government has the ability to monitor and control in some ways and regulate interstate electrical grid jurisdiction over that right but because texas just did it within their own state and it didn't cross state lines. They were able to kind of run rampant and do whatever they wanted with air cod. And so what do you know without that federal regulation. It was entirely unprepared and it doesn't even cover. All of texas to el paso is on another grade. I believe some of east texas on another grid. So it's both inefficient ineffective and obviously what greg abbott is saying is a complete lie. Not that you want to jump in there. It's a desperate life or the industries that put people into places like texas legislatures. Here's just a bit more. Arcot expected to get low capacity factors from wind and solar during winter peak demand. What it didn't expect is over. Twenty gigawatts of outages from thermal mostly natural gas power. Plants went over this yesterday. But this is literally fracking infrastructure freezing in the pipes like this is an they need to go on offense about this because i mean this stuff and crumbling down by rights doyle industry should be destroyed because of it's not serving us and so they have to lie about. It's i mean the biggest lie of my lifetime. It's been the lies about climate change right and this is just a continuation in a more desperate version of that well absolutely and We're not just seeing it from politicians. As i mentioned.

"This Fetterman character, Your lieutenant government has thrown his hand in for the Senate race. He's a really compelling guy looks like a tough, tough liberal. Um, yeah, John Fetterman. I mean, he's a bit of a celebrity candidate. He's kind of a darling of the Hollywood crowd and the progressive crowd. He is not the kind of person who matches up with the electorate in Pennsylvania, which is older, sort of more working class. I mean, he likes to portray himself of the working class guy, but I mean, he's really more of a Hollywood guy I think is gonna have a hard time winning. It's gonna be dependent on who the Republicans put up. They put up a decent candidate. I think Federman is going to have trouble. We have plenty of money, but I think he's gonna have a hard time closing the deal with Pennsylvania voters. On the Democratic side. Is he the heir apparent? Is he the the nomination? I mean, he might have some minor opposition, but I think of cruise to the nomination of quite easily. Wow. Big guy. I mean, he just stark. He is his stark looking man. There's no doubt about it monsters stitched together. Yeah, and he would embrace that he'd say, Yeah, that's who I am, and that's who I am. Yeah, He certainly doesn't look like a shrinking violet. Which is the way a lot of liberals are portrayed. You know, by Republicans, as you know, any waste, you know, Uh uh, You know, guys who just can't defend themselves as Fetterman looks like you could strangle you with one hand. He's a very Ford aggressive guy, and, you know he's got some charisma bottom and, you know he knows how to play the room. So I mean, he'll be a strong candidate. I just don't think he's really in touch with the with the electorate in the state is more of a Hollywood candidate. He thought and thank you for your time again. The CD we don't much appreciate it.

"The most important And the country that were born in Is the best. Great to have you with us, 800 to 822882. If you want to be on the program here is a couple of sound bites to illustrate a couple of points that I have been making all day. On the program specifically in the last hour. First up is the lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania is name is John Fetterman. He was on the CNN with Poppy Harlow. Some show called CNN newsroom on Friday. She had a question for him. She said, Mr Lieutenant Governor. It sounds like you sounds like you don't think Twitter made the right decision by taking the president off the platform. Is that right, saying that Pennsylvania was rigged or that we were trying to steal the election? Unquote. That's a lie and that you do not have the right that is not protected speech. The second, those tweets went up. They should have been deleted. That's not the platform in someone. It's deleting lies that are yelling fire in a crowded theater when there is none, and there's a difference that is not protected speech. No. One Republican Democrat whatever has the right To say those kind of incendiary lies who gets to crawl in lies? Who is this magnificent personage sitting somewhere who gets to proclaim that whatever, Trump said about Pennsylvania is lies. But more importantly, Lieutenant governor Federal what the hell did you people do for four years? If not lie. About Trump colluding with Russians to steal the 2016 election. When everybody knows it was Hillary Clinton that did exactly that. You guys still haven't conceded the 2016 electro? Yeah, Hillary may have but you haven't You're justifying everything. You're doing that Donald Trump on the basis of a lie that you can't stop telling. And nobody is deep platform in you. And nobody is taking your tweets down. And nobody's even suggesting that your tweets Lieutenant Governor Federman, come down. The Democrat Party has spent the last four years lying about the 2016 election. How in the world is what you people are continuing to do any different than what President Trump is saying about Pennsylvania Today? You guys started all of this. You guys on the Democrat side with the media are the people who got it all rolling that the American electoral system has been torched. That it has lost its honor and integrity. You're the ones for four years with never ending reports in the New York Times your Bible and it's CNN, The Washington Post. Your old testament that all of this that happened was undoubtedly true. You have put everything on your side up to the Test of legitimacy and you have claimed the Trump colluded with Putin. You said that he was a traitor. You said that he was an agent of Vladimir Putin, You said, and you never had a scintilla of evidence. Mr Lieutenant Governor, The Mueller report came up with a flat out Nothing. There was no need for the Mueller report. There was never any evidence that Trump had done anything. For Donald Trump for a couple of weeks or a month talks about how Pennsylvania may have been compromised. And you think somebody has sitting up on high determining that's a lie. And for that, Donald Trump needs to have those tweets taken down. But nobody is suggesting it. Any of your lives be taken down. Nobody's even suggesting that what you guys said for four years, his lies except people like me. But you don't have any evidence. And nobody made a move to shut you down. Nobody made a move to the platform. You nobody made a move to Take your so called offending tweets down that one of you said, hear you saying Pennsylvania was rigged or that we were trying to steal the election? That's a lie. What you say about Donald Trump for four years and counting. Lieutenant Governor Fetterman. You don't have that right? It's not protected Speech. What protected you for four years? And counting. Oh, The New York Times reporter. I'm sorry, The New York Times reporting it legitimizes it. No. The New York Times reporting it. Does nothing but slam the reputation of The New York Times. The second, Those tweets went up from the president. They should have been deleted. I could say the same thing about the never ending lies from John Clapper from from Clapper from John Brennan. From Comey. From Hillary Climbing the list is never ending. The number of people who consistently lied struck strokes. Merck Lisa Paige. That whole FBI combine all And yet Nobody made a move to take your tweets down or two. Suggest The New York Times not be able to report what they've reporting because I didn't have any evidence. They lied about the fact that they had evidence. This is exactly what if you descent You're a domestic terrorist folks, If you if you descend from whatever it is the Democrat Party today believes They are claiming they have a right to shut you down to delete your tweets. Now the lieutenant governor here, Pennsylvania, Mr Federman, he stopped short. Suggesting that Trump B d platform that he didn't agree with the Rasputin, Jack. And his decision to take Trump offered Twitter. But we have somebody who does he ask you can always kind of Democrats to give you what you want..

Wall Street fears volatility long after election day
"Let's start with election chaos kate I'll start with you is. That the thing that would cause markets to bulk like there has been this this increasing conversation about expectations of volatility. If there is a contested election, what does it mean for among other things the economy? Well. You know as I think a lot of us who cover the economy like to point out the stock market isn't the economy, but it's a really important. Part of it is important signals that it sends and right now I think that what we're hearing and seeing and a number of different ways is that Yeah Wall Street is getting nervous I. I. Remember a few weeks ago getting an analyst note from a research firm here in DC laying out all the various scenarios of what might happen and what kind of chaos it could trigger and it just seemed kind of surreal reading it and I asked one of the authors and he said we're just getting so many questions from our investor clients about this issue, they want to know what is going to happen. They WANNA be prepared. You know typically in history. We've had one one of two scenarios either Republican Windsor a Democrat wins in this time it's not clear or you know may we might might not be clear who the winner is for some time maybe the president could challenge legitimacy of the election. There's there's a lot that could happen in Wall Street does not like uncertainty. Yeah Gino what does it mean? If Wall Street starts to get nervous not that I think Wall Street's GonNa Swoop into the rescue here but you know what could that lead to? You know I think it's interesting because this isn't a scenario in which it's really easy to just come up with an immediate solution given enough pressure. You know it is probably the case that we are not going to happen immediate conclusion to the vote count where we're likely not going to know who won on election day, and that's not really a changeable fact. So some some period of uncertainty lies ahead of us I think the real question is whether this election ends up being contested I. think that's clearly the thing that makes investors most nervous right now and I I just don't know what happens in that. Instance because you don't see situation where it would really be in anybody's interest you know there's there's no, it's it's not obvious that a real plummet in stock prices would be the thing that would prompt president trump not to contest this election. Since you know presumably he he would only be contesting if he had already lost and so I think there's there's really opened brushes some real reasons for legal to be nervous in it. That's why you are seeing what keep mench in which is just you know investors increasingly kind of scratching their heads and and looking toward the future with a lot of a lot of uncertainty. Right. Well, the other thing that's happening with all of this uncertainty exacerbated by of course, the Supreme Court fight is is that Congress has I. Think has been pretty effectively taken off the ball with respect to relief, right? Kate. What happens if if literally no more help comes from Congress on top of everything else. That's right I mean it seems like there's a there's perhaps a bigger risk from that scenario for the economy right You know there might be some turbulence around or after the election we don't know what that looks like or how long stock market turbulence. But for the for the fundamentals of the economy we are right now in this period seems really critical. People are trying to figure out what is happening right now what what are we going to see in the data because of course in? The end of July these enhanced unemployment insurance benefits expired and I think that a lot of people who had been receiving those maybe they'd managed to save up some money. They were drying down savings. We didn't see an immediate drop off from the expiration of those benefits, but there are definitely signs that things are slowing and You know we've heard from a number of economists on. We heard it again from Fetterman Jay Powell this week that you know eventually with Out. More fiscal support we're probably going to start to see the negative effects from some of that relief and it's not just uninsured and empl unemployment insurance. It's you know extending credit for small businesses. It might be you know around another round of stimulus checks just to help give people a little more of a cushion. So those are things that both sides want but there are some bigger issues that are kind of keeping them from coming together on this effort DOES THIRTY SECONDS LEFT GINA? Where do you think whereas the urgency? What's IT GONNA. Take. Yeah I mean I think it is a really interesting question what we have seen some sort of centrist Democrats in moderate Democrats really starting to get a little bit nervous in maybe push for some sort of compromise which I think is probably the best hope for compromise before the election I've not heard that we're GonNa get there an instance that we don't. You know there are real risks for the economy ahead. If we do not as as Keith mentioned if we do not have some more spending here I think it's one thing that's worth noting. I think a lot of people are taking comfort in pretty solid economic data right now but. A lot of American households build up solid savings buffers off the spending that happened earlier, and now that is kind of getting worn down in. So at some point in time that they will get through that. Kate Davidson at the Wall Street Journal and Genus smiling at the New York. Times. Thanks so much you too. Thank you. Thanks smelly.

"The outcome at the end of the book were sort of left with. What are we learning here right or we we did they get their travis sort of learned from this entire thing is he gonNA be a changed? Man Did the employees sort of feel chastened and decide to turn over a new leaf or travis is a billionaire three times over at this point a lot of the he's working on a new startup he's still in good company he's still goes to the met gala here and invests alongside of blue chip venture capital firms. I believe he's hired a number of the employees who are who were were pushed out guber for bad behavior for his new company right so I'm not sure how much she has learned except maybe to keep his profile much lower. We're at this new startup that he was working on. Just to sort of keep cover from from a press scrutiny. But I don't know you know I wonder I do wonder if it's a sea change in the valley right now I talked to a lot of younger tech founders. Who essentially say look? I don't want to build the same company that Uber built. I want to I want to build. I want you think about culture and ethics in the company from much earlier on just so when we if we're lucky enough to get big we don't have to worry about similar problems. So maybe there is a lesson learned so the new CEO on this program said that Uber's business model is sustainable. Is it dark houser Shahi former. CEO of Expedia Uber's new CEO. Joe His thesis is that ultimately. We're going to get to a point of costs sort of stabilizing in coming down and we'll start to turn a profit in more markets because we don't have to subsidize rides fighting against different competitors in every country. The problem with that is they're pushing headlong into the food delivery business right now. which is I I would say? It's where ridesharing was five or six years ago. It's very expensive. There's a lot of people competing and companies that are willing to lose lose money on every every delivery essentially in order to gain market share. So it keeps kind of kicking the can down the road on wind profitability is going to come and you know he can say that they have a path to profitability. And they're saying I think twenty twenty one is when they're aiming to become profitable but it's hard because they're still trying to grow and they're losing money on all the businesses that they're breaking into so I'm I will wait to see it to believe it. How dealing with the drivers and the and the pushback they've been receiving for them for so long and one one of the things that happened very quickly was the ability to add tips right? That was something that drivers wanted. But what else are they doing to try to keep drivers happy because whether their employees are not. If you don't don't have drivers you don't have a service totally I think. One of the biggest oversights or liabilities really of Travis's era essentially was seeing drivers as disposable consensually. If don't drivers well if we don't really care about yanking around their pay all the time and talking about some of their concerns than we can always is get new ones quickly. The Uber Realized Dara has sort of made it a priority to change the relationship drivers over time you've started to offer them some unlimited of advice on how to handle tax preparation or at least giving them different advisors there or sending them to medical medical benefits plans that they can go find on their own. It's a real difficulty because if they help them too much it's almost as they are treating them like employees which again they don't want to do but if they don't help them enough then the drivers are GonNa get upset and say. Hey you're mistreating us so they're trying. They're they're doing this program of change and we value our drivers but it's always going to be tense because they only can value them. You know so much. What about the concerns of passengers have had over ride safety? I the ninety nine point nine percent of these ridesharing apps and the rides at happen are fine and they're safe but even just given the volume even if it's that point one percent that's a lot of rides a lot of bad experiences We've had reports of sexual assault and rape In Uber Vehicles Goals by drivers. What's the company doing? But I think you nailed it on on the scale idea right not just do but any of these companies if you're doing doing let's say millions of rides a day or for facebook billions of pieces of content today or whatever even just a fraction of that is is a a lot of people. It affects a lot of people right so I think something companies will never say is that you can never fully get rid of rid of this. Because that's just how the world works. But what they do is they try to minimize as much as possible in. So Uber has come out to their credit. Have come out. With a number of different safety mechanisms that never existed assisted in the APP for very long time. There's ways to send your location to people so they know where you're going on the way to your ride. There's an essentially panic antic button. That can call nine one one if you feel unsafe for dangerous or or you go off in a different direction. There's a way to for the company to detect if the drivers going off route for a period of extended period of time which might mean some irregular activities. So they built in some more mechanisms and they're putting more people on the safety team so I will give him credit for that but I mean any any anyone who operates a company that served bit literal billions of people recognizes that you can never get something one hundred percent safe. Does the GIG economy work. I mean because there is now an Uber for everything right you can and get your tasks done you can get lots of different services where contractors come in and fill the gap what is the ripple effect on our economy. If that is a legitimate avenue for people to go find employment. I think there's a few things going on. I think one you you know. In the wake of Uber. There was essentially an uber for everything after after that and it with any sort of wave of startups I think a lot will fail a lot or kind of destined the failed just because the business model doesn't work for everything it's not infinitely repeatable so I think that wave is starting to hit some walls. You're starting to see task. Grab it was bought by Kia because it might not have been enough of a standalone business. But I think the ones that do make it it really does change how we think about work and employment. It's an how people kind of existence cities I'm thinking about. All the delivery food delivery companies. Now that has an effect on local business. It has an effect on retail restaurants where people might not be walking in and coming off the street anymore just because they can sit at home and watch Netflix over their delivery that they just got for for for less than the actual cost because the food delivery companies are trying to win and give you cheaper meals so there are really different effects that this has or Amazon is on which is essentially replaced malls at this point and indefinitely had an effect on retail. So I think it changes. What Main Street looks like it? Changes how we get services and how how we think about these services should work but I do think I do think we should recognize the costs in that and see who affects and in the case was taxi drivers in the in case of Amazon. It's retailers and shops. In the case of food delivery its its littoral restaurants that upheaval as a cost and I think people can at least recognize that the through line between all three of those types of examples that you just gave is that we end up valuing our convenience more than thinking about what those ripple effects are if the people that are working in the restaurant go away if the people that are working in the malls go away if the people that are working in taxis go away. Yes I think it really abstracts. It's kind of like climate changing away right the like the. The big pictures really abstracted from the immediate effects of this one thing. That's right in front of you at the moment. Like maybe Amazon is very bad for the environment in the way that they can ship thousands millions of cardboard packages every day. But all I know is that I WANNA get my paper towels toilet paper with it within eighteen hours if I press one button right and you. It's almost like the system is built to abstract the cost of what you're doing because it's so much larger under and so I don't want to be too cynical because I do think we're in a moment. Now where people are starting to think more about these effects and and what they can do individually to change them but it's it's hard when when all you have to do is press a button and it's much more convenient than it's ever been before Mike. Isaac thanks much. Yeah thanks for having me and finally remember a towering icon of American cinema and one of the last living actors of Hollywood's Golden Age Kirk. Douglas passed away on Wednesday at the age of one hundred three throughout his career. Hit Start in beloved epics spots and the bad and the beautiful. A few years ago I spoke to his son the actor and producer Michael Douglas and he told me how his father's breakout role as a box. I am the champion showcased. His trademark intensity and the champion. He played a heavyweight. Fighter follows way to the top. And I think that's we're that that chopping sort of true he's chopping down his back. Molars and fighting through scenario kind of began and that was the personification of inner rage that to explode and was very very powerful on screen a and used it very well scary as a kid. Yeah yeah sure. He had he had a lot of never been quite sure where I come. I'm from. I've talked to him a little bit. You know he's the white Russian I think he was probably perceived as not being Jewish. I think he probably saw a lot of Anti Semitism In his lifetime people not acknowledging or thinking the actually was Jewish but he it was that same energy Asia incredible stamina that tenacity that sets a struggle. It served him very well where they probably don't know about it is as much as is his humanitarian efforts that he's made in his life and his his beliefs in tickle Newmann or trying to repair the world a better place and through a year of of acquiring a large fortune. He's now basically giving it all away to charity charity into other. He's overcome all sorts of strokes in helicopter. Crashes and all of that so kirk. Douglas was the child of Russian John. Jews who left Belarus to find a better life in the United States. And he used that impetus to become Hollywood's biggest and brightest star. That isn't for now.

"Pennsylvania provide thousands of jobs but we can also incentivize and know that we are transitioning Over to clean energy because no one on our party at this point argues the real threat that climate change poses to our world. So let me ask you on the economic level and. I wonder if it's a story that that that you lieutenant governor or the governor or the Democratic candidates can tell the economic story because let's face visit fracking is not a great economic story his fingers it's incredibly capital intensive You know companies are still trying to prove that they can actually make money money because now they are not turning huge profits. Many companies rely heavily on Wall Street's willingness to continue to find them from them and in fact one of the hedge fund managers puts it this way. The industry has a very bad history of money going into it and never coming out of it That must be important for somebody in your state. And is that an economic argument you can use as you make a transition eventually to tell people you know and the president is making the opposite argument eh sheets. It's great for money and for you know for jobs and all the rest of it well it again. It's it's a complicated argument and the but the the reality is is that Pennsylvania. I believe Pennsylvania's going to pick the next president and I believe in an election results recently in two thousand nineteen bear that out and and I believe Banning an industry overnight on day. One of the office. I doesn't isn't compatible necessarily with that spirit and I say that as a progressive recipe and I say that as someone who's never taken a dime from the industry and would never do so. I I think you lose the importance of the the the industry in a state like Pennsylvania. And what that allows president trump to do in weaponized that and to create an environment. Where a lot of these industries trees? It's not just fracking. Feel that these workers have no alternative other than to go in the direction that maybe they don't even necessarily want to but you know we as Democrats win election soundly the way the governor and I did in two thousand eighteen by embracing and protecting and advancing the union way of Life Ah honoring organized Labor in Pennsylvania. And because we have to remember. We all can't work at Google or any of these other high tech jobs you. There has to be production and manufacturing and energy and in my state Red County Pennsylvania powers and feeds Blue Blue County Pennsylvania and there's an interdependence and the argument that we have that's being made divides us when we as a party and need to unite behind our eventual nominee. And make sure Donald Trump is a one term president because I fundamentally believe that Pennsylvania's going to be a margin play and without Pennsylvania so Vania in president trump's corner. I don't believe he has a realistic plausible path. To two seventy. It is absolutely fascinating. Thank you so much for joining me. Lieutenant Governor Federal and and also leave and horn manager Avin grid renewables. Thank you both very much. Thank you thank you. For many years now Yuba has changed the way many of us live not just in the United States but also around the world and the way we socialize and work but the company has faced a series of scandals from safety complaints to to the ousting of its first CEO and few know it better than Mike is it. The New York Times Tech reporter has been covering the ride hailing company for years his first book super pumped the battle. FUCA presented the dramatic rise and fall of a stop that came to symbolize everything wrong with silicon valley now while the currency CEO has enacted wide reforms in the company. Is it tells a hurry strain of us. How Uber should be a cautionary tale for corporate greed and the limits of the GIG economy? You covered uber for a long time. What is significant about Uber? What did they figure out? I think it was something something about a you know if you can remember back in two thousand nine two thousand ten it was this moment where smartphones were just starting to become you know a device a computer in everyone's pocket wireless and you know high speed. Connectivity was becoming more common in different cities and the idea that you can you know it seems crazy. In retrospect now that you can call a car from your phone is was pretty revolutionary right. Then it gave people the idea that maybe the power of the Internet and the power of the smartphone can can be much larger than just texting or messaging with your friends or logging onto facebook and sharing photos as you report out. They weren't the only ones that were trying to think about rethinking transportation right. They weren't the first one. So how did they succeed. How did they get so big so fast? I think in the valley in Silicon Valley. It's not about being the first. It's about being the best or executing the best you know so you know facebook. It was not the first social network to be there. There was friendster is in my space of the world. It's just about making the right moves to secure your dominance as a company and I I think for Uber. It was about being really basically really cutthroat from the very beginning you know Travis. Kalanick's was the CEO of the company for nine nine or so years and his whole philosophy. was you know. Don't take no don't even don't ask for a don't ask permission. Ask forgiveness really right. Just go into cities and really. Don't even ask forgiveness just barge into cities if you can remember at the time ridesharing had no regulatory framework around it and weather city governments. Want us there or not. We're going to operate and normal people who uses APP. Once we put it in their hands will get the magic of of it and be be enthralled enough to want us there and you know for most for most for all intensive purposes at actually worked for at least a significant period of time so they would just barrel into the city's not ask permission and then what happens they could find from the city but by that time there's already a bunch of users there's and much of money I mean you know. Talk About Uber. Going into hundreds of cities around the United States this point cities barely have have the ability to enforce parking or or different sorts of of rules around their local government. Much less catch. You know a bunch of different people driving different cars around the city. There was no real enforcement around it so in cities like. Let's say Portland. They would try to do these stings and maybe pull over drivers drivers by catching the cars but every time it was kind of like an arms race every time the regulators tried to catch Uber Uber tried to outsmart the regulars regulators by I using some different form of technology to do that and I think the the where it got tricky and ultimately. What would be Uber's undoing doing was how far should you go when you're pressing when you're bending those rules and ultimately are you getting to a point where you're maybe breaking the law are going going beyond what you you should be doing? How much of this was travis? Impact on the company his fingerprint on the corporate culture. I mean look I think in Silicon Valley. It's it's always about move fast break things it's always about you have to sort of you know. Incumbent companies are not going to just hand over there territory to you right you have to sort of press and and be willing to to push it so I think that ethos Israeli instilled in a lot of young tech founders. That said Travis was one of these people who you had to win right like he had to go to all lengths to to essentially dominate the industry and it wasn't going to be uber versus lift or Uber. ooh lifted an UBER IN D in China or Uber and Ola in India. Who's just going to be owns the world? Because that's how travis sort of how to operate and I think that win at all costs mentality ultimately just trickled down to the entire company and I think really for every founder founder of a company that. Da is key it kind of sets the tone from the top down on how companies supposed to operate and you could argued for awhile. It really worked for Uber. Like pushing into a lot of these cities without taking no for answer did make them sort of become ubiquitous until it didn't until will employees would do things that eventually caused them. Scrutiny by the Department of Justice that that that that may have gone too far so what happened to the early investors the board why were they not able to rein in this culture. I think this is the power dynamic that has always been a push and pull in Silicon Valley right in in early days in in the time of the. This is Mark Zuckerberg or Larry Page and Sergei Brand Google the idea that the founder as the sort of God head cult-like figur- your person who can come in and have a real vision was really popular is right. I think Steve Jobs was really kind of one of the pioneers of of that idea. Like you have this person who has a vision and the board of directors shouldn't be too meddlesome because you don't WanNa mess up a good thing essentially and and I really think Zuckerberg and page and brin made that even more popular over time and over time as a VC venture cappos wanted to invest in companies. They would essentially give more power to founders of these companies. And in the case of. Let's say in the best case scenario you let's say Zuckerberg pre twenty sixteen. You build a billion multi billion dollar company. That's doing really well. And in the worst case scenario of let's say a Travis County or Uber you have a founder who amid multiple scandals amid reckless behavior internally and multiple federal investigations. You're not able to remove that founder removed CEO because ultimately they ceded a lot of the power over over to him in in the way the corporate structure worked. So how did that perfect storm happened. I mean it kind of seemed to be post. The trump presidency beginning beginning. There seemed to be a focus on inequality and worker rights. There seems to be also the rise of the METOO movement as right. So what were the factors that actually we made these big struggles tuber significant enough where he had to leave. He had to be ousted. I it was perfect. Storm is exact right word. I think If you remember back in Pre Twentieth Sixteen Tech did not really have the level of scrutiny. That it does right now you know so yeah exactly right it was. It was founders on the cover of magazines and they were sort of an idealized version of what it meant to go into tech and facebook was on the list of top ten companies to work for years on end and then post really post trump's election. We started see questions about how tech work right Maybe a Russian influence campaigns are putting disinformation inside of facebook. And we aren't really aware of it or maybe we shouldn't be creating these models of of hybrid work that have eroded worker protections over over a long period of time or maybe women are being badly mistreated in these companies and not really having any voice to say and so I think at this one moment and beginning this was sort of like the seeds of rumblings rumblings of early metoo that would come later in two thousand seventeen at this moment. I think Uber became really the poster child for how bad tech bad behavior in tech can be right. It was and a lot of different scandals came out for the company. At once. If you remember Susan Fowler an employee at the company when he published this link the blog post that said essentially she had suffered really bad mistreatment and sexual harassment at the hands of her managers is Sorta so does she got there and and I think that broke the dam open for for a lot of different scandals to come out given all of the bad behavior. That's been documented mended about Travis through the investigations. I mean there was basically a sort of very high level investigation. That kind of went into this here. He is now no longer with the company. Incredibly wealthy at all of the early founders and employees of Uber who might have been part of the problem problem. What was the consequence right? This is the the you know..

That helps deliver almost anything to college students on campus. Fetterman deco is an engineer and entrepreneur, and founder of jetpack. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me excited. We we're, we've been trying to get you on for a while. You have a great startup story. Let's start with just a little bit of your background. You grew up in New York, but where were you before that? Right? So I was born in Mali. A lot of people may not know Timbuktu's there. I was born in Mali came to New York City when I was five years old, and that's when I started learning English. I started watching my dad, build computers, ended up going to Columbia in the city as well. And then you know, my journey began from there, so. So what do you remember about your dad building PC's? What are your memories of that? So I, I remember seeing a motherboard for the first time and I so intrigued. I had never seen a piece of hardware like that before. I'm so inquisitive asking so many questions about how it sit into the larger CPU, which the time was like the size of me as a kid and. As it as you've been. Imagine if you know you come to the United States without learning any English, you're gonna have a lot of questions about everything around you. So even things like going to them use park, you know questions started to follow. How does that work? You know, how does the rollercoaster get us back down once we're up there? How are you building the computer together? And I think that just started the series of just being a really prolific noticed her and one who just ask questions. I'd say that's really where it began. And I mean, you know, it's not just a matter. It sounds like from your story, not just a matter of noticing how these things work, but then also, you know, as any good entrepreneur has the curiosity of that stuff, but then the idea to actually take that and implemented. I mean, this jetpack is not your first thing. You know your first project is my best box as well. Like, I don't know. What do you attribute to your ability to take all that and then have the confidence to than step forward and make it a reality, make it happen. No, that's a really phenomenal question. I had a technical mentor Proctor and gamble where while I was there, I was on a an armed e group of five technologists where we were coming up with products, three to ten years away for market, and one of my technical mentors at the time, phenomenal innovator one of the lead inventors of both Switzer and head and shoulders. He would always say that great ideas happen when two old ideas come together for the first time. And for me, that was really powerful because it reinforced this idea that you do not have to be the most brilliant person or the person to think of something before anyone you know, thinks of it. But rather notice and inefficiency in once face and then find the solution and another. And as we were saying about being a notice and being inquisitive and Hosking the question, why a lot of. That helped me start just piece things together from different places. So you were at Proctor and gamble, and then you went to Stanford for graduate school. Is that where you came up with the idea for pack? Yes, actually, I left Procter and gamble began working on the idea. My dad at the time. He was like, wait, sear, leaving PG to sell to paste out of back path. And I was like, Yup, but I tell..
