Grading for Equity with Joe Feldman
"Can you talk a little bit about why an understanding this sort of historical context is so crucial to our work around around the bigger issues of equity and just are better understandings of of how students work now. Yeah i mean. I think one of the challenges is that we we believe that Or many of us believe that this grading system has been just fine. And it's almost like this Just like the oxygen in the room. You don't really think about it in and everybody's breathing it and you know if it ain't broke don't fix it and let's focus on the curriculum design and the assessment design and how we can be culturally responsive multi-lingual and all those kinds of things and those are hugely important. But i think grading is often thought of as this justice sort of ancillary part of teaching and learning and it's not addressed in our training teachers. It's never talked about really even when you get a new curriculum in readers writers workshop. Nobody saying this is how you enter the grades for it or which grades to enter things like that so a lot of us are just doing the best. We can and replicating what we experienced in or trying to You know right. The wrongs of how might have been graded and i think knowing the historical context for where these ideas came from can act as a as a motivating engine for us particularly when we're trying to be truly not just in our individual behaviors in classrooms relationships. Boom we're thinking about how to create structures and systems in our schools That align with equity actions in values. Yeah so your work You're totally right like teacher school. I never took a single class on how to grade. It was all a k. Hearsay teach but we know that the feedback. We give students a huge part of learning your work. Kind of like takes the wolof of our eyes. And you're like whoa yeah. My grading system really was based on factory work And you want to change it but then you think well my jobs also to prepare students for the next level So how do you advise teachers to think about you. Know like elementary school teachers. Well i'm doing this to prepare them for middle school in a middle school teacher. I'm preparing for high school and then the high school teacher. I have to do this. 'cause this is what they're going to have in college. So how do we begin to tackle this problem with that reality in mind. That comes up all the time those questions. So i'm gonna talk on a couple of ways. The first is the idea that if a student needs to reduce something well that might be. Okay actually that if we want them to keep learning than we should let them keep learning and if we want to think about the world there's a place where second chances can be given to people in forgiveness and redemption can begin than we should have students experience so that's sort of the more theoretical philosophical. Aspirational there's also a realistic one with you. Know in the professional world. The idea of reducing retakes happen all the time so you know especially when people are in the early learning process which all of our students are all in the learning process. Not so much in the performing stage. So you don't talk. Don't say well you know the doctor who's doing heart surgery can't make a mistake. Well that has very little to do with what we want are thirteen and fourteen and fifteen year olds to think about what they're doing in school. This is time to learn and so and reduce happen all the time right so i you know i order something. Image chef makes it wrong from the restaurant. And i say this wasn't right and they say i'm sorry i will redo this and we'll you know we're sorry about that and we might get a little off your bill so we can say to students. You wanna redo it great. I'm so glad you wanna redo it. Now you're gonna have to study. You're going to have to invest additional time. Now that's what happens when you didn't get it right the first time. But that's okay. It's not going to punish you in your grade And i think there are just so many ways as you begin to get deeper into what Grading is that it actually. Better reflects the professional world than our traditional
Higher-Order Thinking and Personalized Systems of Instruction (PSIs) in Higher Education
"You i got interested in the idea of kind of looking at higher order thinking and sort of personal systems of instruction when you yourself were a student and that led me to the question of what was personalized systems of instruction especially computerized ones from beyond. You know i. I think today everyone sort of thinks about all you can do all this stuff online. You learn online. Everyone's an online program. But if you go back maybe fifteen years you know. Maybe even ten years it feels like one of these technologies that couldn't have existed but we know. Psi original work was from well before computers. Were something that everyone had seven of in their house and you know in in the form of a phone so could you tell us a little bit about what. Psi's were like when you were starting out in higher education. You were starting to use them as part of your doctoral program. Sure well can. I use a way back machine to tell you another little tidbit secret. Of course you can do right if we go way back to me being in grade one and then i realized this later that there were reading. Labs and reading. Lab was the self paced set of there. Were these big boxes at the back of our room and you could go through these little reading vignettes. I remember reading about brown bears and things like that. Like that. Just stuck out to me because i love reading about them right like what were they. Where did they live what they eat so forth. And then you would answer these questions and if you'd have to get them all complete and correct and then you could go on to the next one so there was kind of this. It was all mastery based and i realized later this. Psi in like k. Through twelve right like in this really popular back at the time that i was in grade one and you know as students we kind of love this we could go at our own pace and get immediate feedback on whether or not we're right and we keep going on and on and on on these things and there's a little bit of competition among us rate because like you could be finished all of this work in your reading and language arts like whenever it was up to you you could get it all done and then go into something else so that was kind of exciting or are you could help other students in the class so i think that i never thought about it until recently but i think that when i when i was introduced to computer aided psi which was topped by joseph parrot the university of manitoba but this is probably why i love this system so much because it is self paced but the early early psi if you go back to the work of fred keller when he published his seminal article and nineteen sixty eight rate and the journal of applied behavior analysis goodbye teacher based upon a rhyme and he's introducing people to assist them that he's developed and he introduced in brazil as well as the united states. Psi was you know these units of study that you could you know master hopefully in about a week or so and you would go in and you would take a test when you're ready to take the test and then you either pass or you've gotta re study and if you've gotta re study you could go over the task with the proctor or the professor and then you could come back and retake it when you're ready to do so after you know some amount of kind of time out to re steady So if you think about that like things that there's an instructor right like if you have ten units that you have to have students take tests on. How many different tests do you need for them. You know if they get a reset and one you don't just give them the same test you have to have like a whole bunch of questions and different forms of big zam right for each unit so imagine the administration of that right like just can you imagine like panel versus thirty students versus three hundred. What would that be like a lot of tests a lot of grading more file cabinets right basically all the file cabinets right. Yeah file cabinet. Imagine carrying all the tests to and from the classroom and keeping them organnized. And you know. And we didn't have and they didn't have computers back then either right so when joe pair computerized this he actually made it. So that you could go in and you could request a-tast online and this is before point and click okay. This is before we had windows right in the we actually had to learn how to type in commands into the computer. And i never think of myself as somebody who programs but i did. I had to learn programming to be able to do this. Because you have to give the computer commands to get into your account and then to call up a test and then tell it to add more lines if you wanted to add more information to your answer or are you. Talking like a dos. Prompt or more like an old like early. Eighties looking kind of you know unix mainframe mainframe o wow absolutely yeah rob. It's definitely a mainframe computer right. And so so we did that and you know we after you master to test then you could sign on to be a peer reviewer or printer for student who had not yet passed that unit. So i mean think of it right like if you love this stuff and you're and you just go in and on a weekly basis at least on a weekly basis you pass one unit a week or more you can be peer reviewing a whole bunch of them and the peer reviews were great because they were bonus points in the course you and and the final exam where something like sixty percent because it was in person and they that was the quality control you had over the online course was making sure that people were who they said they were and you know that they weren't just doing things open book so you know it was nice being able to pat up though the the bonus points just in case but he bit. But here's here's the track right like when you do that and you're actually going and you're taking your test and your peer reviewing other students test. You're actually
Could This Simple Hack Reduce Anxiety and Panic Attacks? with Dr. Kristen Allott
"Dr analogy welcome to the broken brain podcast. It's an honor and a privilege to have you here. Thank you so much drew. I am so excited for this conversation. I think it'll be just fine Back and forth to share information. Yeah i love what. You're bringing to the world in this topic of anxiety and i think that we zoom out in the context of the current world even prior to cove nineteen pandemic anxiety. You could see that. The instances and usage of the word in just general language newspaper social media is skyrocketing and you know languages so powerful and sometimes we really have to parse apart a word to really understand like what do we really mean when we're saying that because sometimes we say anxiety and we actually could be meaning something else when you talk about this world of anxiety and your new book which we're going to get into in a little bit. What do you really want people to help understand. What exactly is anxiety. Yeah so i think that's a great question. And i will just tell you how i approach that When i started in practice about fifteen years ago Because i'm a naturopathic physician acupuncturist decided to specialize in mental health. And people were coming in. And saying i'm anxious and and i just didn't think it was like so. How does that apply. Physiology was really the question that i was interested in and because some for some people it's stress for some people. It's i'm afraid to move forward and take a step forward for some people. It's a i'm overwhelmed like there's all sorts you know. It's a catch word as you say. And but there's also a curious about what the physiology of depression or anxiety or whatever these words were saying. And and so i. When i started in practice i literally in my on my living room floor. I had stock physiology textbooks a stack of neurology. Textbooks and the dsm and the dsm is the diagnostic statistical manual. It just describes. What the diagnosis categories for anxiety are and i was just like will. I think it's more than just an emotion like a candy but like the people were coming in with panic. Attacks like that is not an emotion that is a full embodied experience right. And and so i started just parsing out like what are the. What are the fizzy. What physiology causes these physical symptoms of shaky and racing thoughts and your heart racine. And maybe you're sweating and and all those symptoms that you know sometimes it starts small and Escalates to really big asu started to parse that out and then was like well. Once once i started to understand the physiology in the neuro physiology will. Where do we. Where can we intervene to help. People feel better and so answering your questions kind of copying out. But it's like. That's that's the approach that i took because so many people were using words and i was like i want a grounded in something concrete. Absolutely i mean if we look at the history and evolution of just anxiety and a lot of mental health. A lot of these things in early medicine were considered to be They're kind of in your head right like nothing else is going on right. We made a documentary a few years ago. Which then led to the name of this podcast. Broken brain my business partner. Dear friend dr mark hyman. We made a documentary called broken brain and the underlying premise. That documentary was what you do to your body you do to your brain. Your brain is not in. This isolated eight oregon that just as floating on top of your head. That's completely disconnected than the rest of everything. That's going on there actually an intertwined system and we have to understand that yes there can be. Let's call for lack of a better term emotional factors that are there right. Stressor is the complete driver of so many different things that we feel but let's also look at the physiology of what's happening underneath so when it comes to that topic of anxiety and the physiology gonna ask you a question which is a question that i came across a few years ago in a book by peter thiel little bit of a controversial character. But i really love this question that he had inside of this book. I think the book is called zero to one and he said what truth do you believe is true that other people disagree with in that category. So when you look at right what do you believe is true when you think about anxiety and physiology that people maybe traditional western medicine will say like. I don't know if that's true. Yeah so The one truth. That i see time and time again is it is really hard to have a panic attack. If you just ate. And i don't see panic. Attacks occur unless people are five hours from food or more at or they may have eaten some really sugary substance to at two hours ago. But if you had a real meal. It is really hard to have a panic attack. That's powerful right. There and people like that is not true and and the same applies to suicidal Which is know just part of the spectrum of people keep doing doing panic attacks they can get there and and and and the reason for that is that are i mean i can go into the physiology but but people don't believe that until they start looking mental health professionals or physicians and then when they want start looking at the pattern it holds true. Now there's always an exception to the rule ways but it holds like ninety five percent true
How Monster Beverage Shares Soared a Monster 100,000% in the Last 20 Years
"This has become one of your favorite companies. Not just because the story around bro. Culture is quite interesting right now. Lots of people are playing more video games. Were all stuck at home in. So maybe wanna drink more of this particular beverage while you're gaming but also because the returns on this one have just been absolutely stunning yet. Exactly right so. The company is a monster beverage. You've almost certainly seen them like at any deli or grocery store anything. They're known for their big cans of heavily. Caffeinated drinks sugary like super aggressive label labels on them. and it's like this sort of like very like macho. Frankly bro beverage and the stock has done phenomenally well but depending on exactly what Settings you use. it's it might be the single best performing stock in history or certainly over the last twenty or so years. I figured southlake eighty-five thousand percent over the last twenty years or one point it was like it's just unreal. We're talking like bitcoin level returns actually could probably put like bitcoin indie Etf to but we're talking like a bitcoin level returns for a company that sells a sh- sugary caffeinated beverages. Right and i think when most people think about the best performing stock of the past couple of decades they're going to think about amazon or google or apple or something like that. Not many people are gonna think about you. Know a consumer facing beverage company after. Tell you something. So i don't know much about monster I've never had one of the energy drinks. Although i am very aware of the branding and advertising strategy has been a big part of their success. And i'm sure we're going to get into that on the podcast. But i have to say in the course of doing some research for this episode. I found the most amazing anecdote on read it. Of course it came from read. It changes that perfect. What what what the anecdote. So i think it was on the financial independence retirement early board but it was some guy who said he invested ninety thousand dollars in monster energy drinks I think this was in two thousand ten. He posted and he said he'd invested five years ago so basically he had a five hundred percent increase on that ninety thousand dollar position which made him a millionaire in the space of five years and the best part of it was he wrote that in two thousand ten everyone on the message board basically said you are absolutely crazy. I can't believe you have this huge chunk. Appoint foley of your portfolio in a single stock. You need to sell it right now. And of course had he held onto it at. I don't even know what it would be worse now but like the big spike in monster energy came after two thousand ten so you can only imagine what ninety k. Invested back in two thousand five with look like after a fifteen year. A monster run in monster energy. It's really incredible. I mean it's like one of these charts where you just like slice it up. And you're like holy crap. These amazing returns and then you zoom out and looks even more amazing. It's just. It's just

A Forgotten African American Burial Site Could Be Hidden In Washington DC
"Over the past century. Archaeologists and town residents have unearthed dozens of human remains on the thirty three hundred block of street northwest.

It's a quiet historic street in georgetown on one side. There's volta park a slice of recreational heaven with a pool tennis courts and a jungle gym on the other. A row of million dollar townhomes from the late nineteenth century beneath those homes. Residents archaeologists have found countless skulls jaws ribs and skeletons from bodies buried ages ago. One q street resident.

Burial ground for free and enslaved residents men says she loved to know the identities behind the barrels but she also has renovation plans of her own. I'd also love to build a pool or say you know. I don't like what's the protocol know that you've already got a half a body. She's not the only one with questions. Reuther coli the city's official archaeologist has been excavating backyards and basements on q street for nearly fifteen years she and a team of researchers are looking for answers on who might be buried there so q street is unusual for in so many ways. It is very hard to do research on this earlier time period in georgetown because when it was found it was part of maryland.

What i'm calling the rest of the market. So could this really have room to run. Let's take a closer look with you on crises. The turnaround orders chairman. Ceo patel real. These results michigan. Welcome back demand money. Jim it's great to be here in on your manager word when things weren't doing waste things weren't doing well when things that down very low you said things are starting to get better. This was the finest fourth quarter in fifteen years despite a worldwide pandemic. Talmadge do it. Yes jim this was an exceptional quarter for mattel without best performance in years with strong consumer demand and another milestone near for the company for the second quarter in a row which have double digit sales growth without grace. The industry in gain share on a global basis but are results excited expectation on many levels with the highest fourth quarter growth in fifteen years as you said with a significant increase in profitability with a full year operating income. That was two and a half times higher than than last year. But this is not just about the quarter or the year. It's about a multi year strategy that is tracking very well which puts us on in a strong position to continue to increase profitability and etc growth. In two thousand twenty one and beyond what i liked about it but these were all fantastic numbers but you told me one day jim this company which has terrible cash flow can make fortunes on everything that it does put out so when barbie has a plus eighteen percent quarter number one toy property globally in twenty twenty doll- but boy you're making a lot more money off each barbie even though they're more interesting fascinating diverse inclusive than any of the line. At that i've ever seen as we made significant progress improving. Our ability. Gross margin has increased for the tenth consecutive quarter.

We expect to Continue to reduce our leverage ratio. And make our way towards an investment grade rating.
How Being Yourself Makes You a Better Leader with author Minter Dial
"I want. say congrats on your latest book. You lead how being yourself makes you a better leader. What was the motivation for this book. So just like in the same idea. Be yourself how do you do that. And how much of you should you bring into work. We talk about authenticity transparency. But is it about being radically transparent. Radically empathic and radically you totally you. So that was the question. Mark ahead in my mind as i launched intas but actually i started writing this book in two thousand and fourteen and at the time i wanted to be like the book of my life like everything full out work personal and everything in between and it took me a long time to Stu and come up with this line which is hopefully to change the way we lead a not just in business but ourselves because in the end of the day. If there's is huge lack of engagement oversee the previously to books haven't exactly figure that out and then to understand how we can bring more of ourselves feel engaged fulfilled and up bullshitting ourselves at work. Which hopefully has knock on effective leading everybody else to want to be with you. Yeah i mean. Starting in two dozen fourteen. Roughly six years was their their moment where it accelerated for. You does seem like a long time. But i know other books. People have written not you but other people could take ten years fifteen years sometimes so. I'm just curious if there is an unlock moment for you. Well it's great. You know like those more academic papers need lottery such things like that. No this was the actually. The thing that happened here was sort of blocking moments Blocking tackle i had. I went off to croatia. At thirty thousand words. I was like all excited came back wife about it. I've really got a big slug of all of us. Had something happened. And i had actually three big loud bazooka moment blocking me or changing the course of my direction which included a call from the television station. Pbs saying hey mental. Your story so great. Let's put on television and clearly. That wasn't part of what i was thinking and and i'm busy doing something else. Meaning internet this actually takes preference so i then put on hold when off that one and then a friend of mine killed himself and that kind of took on another path and then so i've had these different things that have happened anyway. I would say that the walk. In kensington park with a friend of mine who had been published kogan page was the catalyst to getting contact with them and they said awesome. Great idea really. Love it and next thing you know. I had a publisher and that happened of course before the old pandemic started. We'll let's get into started down this path. And i stopped you apologised for the rabbit hole but i wanna to talk about what you mean by you lead. You talked about authenticity radically being yourself. Tell us a little bit more about what you mean by. You lied so i. I generally feel that everybody has leadership potential and but a lot of times. You sort of like won't take away the responsibility and this listen to orders. And i feel like if there's such disengagement at work something is not happening so the of initial premise. Is you lead you and you need to be master of you. Which essentially means at its heart getting to know who you are and what matters to you and so often we go through life. Allan where we're doing what we're supposed to do getting the title on the business card getting extrinsic ideas doing following in my father's footsteps or not as man whatever and we're not actually in touch with ourselves and this is a particular challenge when you're successful often mail. You just think that this is the thing and so the one. I'm trying to really griffin to is to be in check with who we are as an individual and then once we have that established we get rid of some of the chips in the shoulders. Were more cognizant when we're being emotional and irascible and disagreeable and and potentially more vulnerable and then we can definitely model a behavior that the rest of the team might follow through with got it and i mean those sound like great things to do like just a better know myself to be more aware of my own tics and talks. Yeah why is this important for leaders. Do you think well on one hand. My feeling is that leadership is still wonky. If not a terribly wrong and the other hand i think that is much as some people want to be authentic. It's they're not sure what they're being authentic about and why they're doing it so very quickly you can be put off the course you can be doing something because you think it's good to do because it's like there's the narrative being sustainable development is great. Let's do it but there's no real hook anchor back into who you are as we end up doing so many things because it's good to do. Oh that sounds like a really smart idea let's do that and by justifying rationalizing all these smart ideas. We actually ended up frustrating ourselves. Because we're going to not get to want to get too so i feel like the issue is. We've all been to university a lot of us or you know educated and were reading even if you haven't gone university it's fine but with intellectual curiosity we we kind of think we know ourselves because we have that arrogance may be pretension says i want of course i know myself. I'm fifty six allen. God dammit you crack question me on who i am but i think we have this sort of absolute ability gloss over the details. I'm an executive powerful. And i'm excited. I'm confident on curious. I'd fine but that kind of describes everybody at some level to sort of leggings generic concepts that you want to project but who are you deeply inside and if you're excited about sustainable development can you not attach it to something that's more relevant to you for example or hopefully i'll have one day grandkids. Well i'd like for them to live in an environment where okay well. That's at least a more personal hook as opposed to the intellectual size that it was going to help our customers think that we're better people.
Community-powered solutions to the climate crisis
"Home. It's where we celebrate our triumphs. Make our memories and confront our challenges and these days there are plenty of those an historic pandemic wildfires floods and hurricanes all threaten our basic safety. These challenges hit even harder in communities that have been cut out of equal opportunities in the us. Unfair and racist housing policies called redlining have for decades forced black brown indigenous and poor white families into areas rife with toxic chemicals that make people sick. They're surrounded by concrete that traps extreme temperatures demand more cooling more money more energy more carbon. Our problems are interconnected. Imagine all we can do when we realized the solutions are two at the solutions project. We've seen that some of the people most impacted by covid nineteen least likely to have a steady place to call home and most affected by the damage to our climate are already working on effective and scalable solutions. Take buffalo in miami where affordable housing has become a community solution to the climate crisis. Buffalo new york is the third poorest city in the united states and six small segregated but our people. How're is strong. Over the last fifteen years my organization push buffalo has been working with residents bill ren- affordable housing deploy renewable energy and to roll the resilience in power in our communities. We saw heating bills soar over the last pay. We organized state policy help. Small businesses into our people to work. By the rising homes we responded with equal landscaping ingredient infrastructure when record rainfalls flooding our neighborhoods. We replaced the concrete that overwhelmed and may heat ways unbearable. Let us visit school. Seventy seven and eighty thousand square foot public school building that was closed and abandoned for nearly a decade but pushed off low in the community transforms to solar power forcible senior apartments and a community center. This is what the community wants it when private developers were school building for high end loft apartments eight hundred residents mobilized came up with a plan. We became new york. State's first community. Solar projects in during the coronavirus pandemic abon tier running mutual at catalyst. Miami anga miami climate alliance. We work with dozens of other organizations to enact policies. Ride safe housing anthrax climate. Here in miami. We've seen a four hundred percent increase in tidal flooding between two thousand six and twenty sixteen. And i've seen forty nine additional ninety degree days per year since nineteen seventy. We fought for the miami forever. Bond to fund four hundred million dollars for affordable housing and climate solutions. Yet every day we continue to see luxury high rise condos being built in our neighborhoods added more concrete in heat on the ground. Some of our members are taking matters into their own hands. Literally conscious contractors is a grassroots collective that formed during hurricane irma to protect rebuild and beautify our communities all while increasing energy efficiency. They don't think that anyone should have to choose between paying a high a. c. bill and living in a hot in moldy house that will worsen respiratory illnesses such as asthma or corona virus. They fix problems at the source. Advocates across the country are holding their governments accountable. Climate solutions that keep their communities in place we need to push from reportable housing green infrastructure and flip protections because these are the solutions that solve many problems at once.
Making working remotely work well with John Vuong, owner, and founder of Local SEO Search
"For today's episode. And we're really excited to welcome john von as my guest in. He is the ceo of local seo search incorporated. John welcome thanks for having me on. I'm excited to be on your show today. Great so some of you are listening. Might be saying so what does it. Seo search many has to do with when people thrive companies thrive. And what i have to say is as re getting prepared for our interview. John and we're going to talk about working remotely and funny enough. There's a recent episode a just published on if you don't offer remote work options you're going to go the way the dinosaurs so john should jump into it. So tell me about your company had been working remotely all this time or was it a something that you had to implement because of the pandemic and other environmental issues perhaps. Yeah definitely Well thanks for the intro. I started this agency eight years ago so twenty thirteen and the reason i started was Actually i i worked in advertising sales for ten years and the instead longest in was working at yellow pages for five years and i did work in a corporate environment. I went into the office couple times a week But i had a book of business so it was more of a freedom kinda urine sales environment but it was more my independent business portfolio book of business by went in service clients so the last two years at yellow pages. I actually was home-based remote. So i had an idea of how to structure my day how to be disciplined how to perform well Being really focused on metrics right count ability. Making sure that i delivered on all the you know whatever was renewables or up sales or whatever my my boss at the time manager directors advised me to hit targets so fast forward when i first started the company as a business owner now. I didn't even know how to run a business. I was new at everything and just jumping into business. Ownership is completely different mindset as running and working as an employee because all the structures were in place all the processes procedures all the departments. Were already there. So when i first started. It was a little bit more challenging. Getting my foot off the ground. Yes i was a sales. Were up so it was out there selling. But they didn't know how to do all the stuff in the back end. So i had to harvest and learn all that the reason i started a hiring remote was costs mainly and getting understanding what it took when i first started You know working remote in at yellow pages. And i was looking for very specific skill sets based on what i harvest right so i learned a lot in terms of like hiring training evolving. My my staff. And i found that anyone in the world can work in this industry right because it is online marketing digital advertising and as long as customers get good results digitally. They don't really know or care where you're located. I'm very upfront and honest and pure in terms of letting people know anything. They want in terms of my industry. My business and how it operates how he got started but honestly clients all they care about is results who you are as a business person in a human. You know the the leader of it all manning the ship and what is your track record. What is success stories and if you can prove to customers that you know what you're doing and you can get good success and results. They will vet and user gut to decide if they wanted to choose you over someone else. So i've learned that over the years like just yourself right. They either like your and same with harvesting good employees. That are remote. Just be honest right. Let people in on what you're doing they either are with you in terms of value wise and your your leadership and your you know your company or not right and that's okay because there's a lot of people out there that are willing to jump with your your company or not same with clients like the not everyone's going to be a great client. You just learning revolve over the years. So what i find interesting in listening to your story that you know you just started out remote because you've had that experience with yellow pages and then it sounds like that there might have been some education of potential clients and customers but we work remotely whatever. And what's interesting is from. The internal side were hearing from from individuals who are looking to find new employment because their current employer is insisting that they come into work in person and these employees. Don't feel comfortable. And so they're leading. And so what. I find interesting. Is you as an organization may have had to educate your clients about. Here's the value of us working remotely and and the fact that you're looking at the end game. The results are happy clients. Who are well served and does it matter how they are being starved. Zombie well-served so that's the external part. On what you had to say about those companies who internally or say no. Don't we have to be in person and love to lead it. Yeah it all depends on corporate culture. Right it all depends on what's mandated at the top and for more tech startups and companies are more advancing in terms of pro. Just being more forward thinking. I i would say because peop- there's going to be a generation of people that are old school mentality. They're so used to go into a factory. Going to large corporate multinational company with a structure. They clock in clock out. They want to be completely in control and they want to know that even though there might not be as productive they see them. They're right and it's more of a control thing. However i look at more. Like i want the best in terms of my staff wellbeing productivity and less stress and i feel if you harvest a good work environment they will stick with you for a lot longer because you're looking after them and it's more of a good fit for both parties so it all depends right because again do factory kind of work environment or even give you an example. My wife works at a bank. And it's a very large top. Five banks in canada corporate structure and she you know has been working in the office for the last fifteen years during this pandemic. She's move to more homebase because of the situation and we just have to adapt to it and she found that at the beginning was challenging. Because we have a child at home it was more about trying to work around life. Dif- different things that are thrown at us all right But as the months and months gone she found a groove h. He found like you wake up a little bit later. You get more sleep. You're less stressed commuting into the office instead of spending forty five minutes to an hour getting on a train or driving to the office. She saves at my having slow. You know having coffee or breakfast in the morning spending more time less stressed right being as productive as she was in the office but just using technology for you know meetings yes. You don't get that social interaction where you go out for coffee and lunch with people. But maybe there's pros and cons to that as well because when you're done doing that copy break it takes you a you know. Ten fifteen minutes to get back in the groove of actually focusing on productive were but now you're onus is doing ed at work at home and you will productive because you can actually. There's no less distractions. I would say right. And you can actually focus. So i've harvested alive these traits over the years of doing this and even prior yellow pages and whatnot So i've i've kinda got a good groove by doing this for over ten years now right and it takes time and it's not for everyone and it's totally okay to acknowledge that and employees employers. They have to realize there's going to be different types of people for different positions and they have to accept it. They got a fine good matches. Good alignment and focus on. What is the end. Goal is
Selena And Abraham
"In early march twenty twenty. I was on a plane on my way from boston. to corpus. christi. Texas selena's hometown. It was the early days of twenty twenty the before the country was still flying. People were still out in the street. I'd gone dancing the night before albeit a hand sanitizer on every ten minutes so i was tired on the plane but i couldn't sleep. I was ansi. My stomach was in knots and it wasn't just because of the impending pandemic. I was on my way to a month long reporting trip in texas interviewing scholars fans and all kinds of people for this podcast. Accept this podcast. Of course didn't exist yet and that's because the whole theme hinged on the first leg of this trip this is when i hope to meet with abraham gained nia salinas fall who's notoriously protective of her image and music. I'd hope to land an interview with him and also ask him to let us license some of selena's songs for the podcast. My is thinking was no music rights. No podcast before this plane right to texas. Our producers have been working on securing those music rights for a few months. We'd had to wrangle all these parties songwriters record labels small publishers and convinced them that the project was worthy of selena's music. But i knew that the final deciding yes or no would come from. Selena's family manage to reach selena's father abraham on the phone a couple of times before he wasn't really interested in interviews said too many reporters had asked him to many foolish questions. I told him. Oh this podcast. It's an oh to selena. It's rooted in love. I wanna show her legacies true impact and he was like everyone wants to do that when he heard disappointment in my voice. He told me not to feel bad. He rejected journalists every day. Meanwhile i heard from the record label. They said selena's family would not approve our request to license her music. I tried reaching abraham again. I emailed him left two messages. Nothing so back on the plane. I wondered how things would go down. Abraham knew when i'd be in corpus christi but he'd stopped short of setting an official meeting with me either way. I felt like i had to at least try to talk to him. But i felt this apprehension. This like skittish feeling. I've been a journalist for fifteen years. I've met plenty of people who make me nervous but this fell like there was so much more at stake yes to some degree because of the music rights to some degree because of his famous temper but really it was because abraham felt like such a big part of selena's story a foundational part. He wasn't just her father. He was her manager. Her mentor and selena. Talked about him all the time. My influences were. I would say oh my father. My father used to have a ban the way back. When and i guess it's where we get the musical talent brahmin and i don't really remember seeing or hearing about salina's mom allah growing up. But i remember knowing. About abraham. I was eleven. In nineteen ninety seven when the selena bio pic came out edward james olmos portrays abraham opposite of a young jennifer lopez. Selena
Tesla buys Bitcoin: Elon Musk's plunge into BTC
"I twenty four hours we've had since loss on. Look the biggest thing really to speak has been the involvement of tesla in tribe. Of course been talking tweeting. A i guess talking and tweeting Quite a bit about the Dosage pretty much about dodge With hashtag bitcoin as his twitter description. Of what you want to call it now. I'm market is currently sitting just shy of one point four trillion dollars. This is huge. It's huge for all of us. All of us that have been around for a wall. He's in for those of you. That are relatively new to this by. It's huge for you as well. This is the reason why she age. You've got it's six one white half a dozen the other whether he's the wealthiest man in the world next to jeff basil's. I couldn't give to hurts about that. The fact is you've got a rebel entrepreneur who is willing to put himself on the law. He sold pipe off. I think he's a hundred ten million and what he did was invested in the tesla and spice x and barred money inside on couches. Now this is sort of man that is not in anything for the money. This is a man who has a drive. he has a purpose. And after that i he is. He's kind of just want say something. You've never seen before. But certainly the level of entrepreneurship. I haven't seen before in my been rating books and being involved with a lot sorts of stuff. Since i was about fifteen years old when i read zig ziglar top was offered to me by my very first mental. And it's it's quite. It's quite an extraordinary thing as far as long consent to how somebody who is so different and so different. I guess it's not just about money. The guy puts it all on the line. He he he i mean. He smoked a joint. With joe rogan. I mean the guy. He's a rug. He's is mac villian. He does what he wants. He is the person the creek di really represents. All sorry hayes to his now become the person that he's a spokesperson he is. know bang. And it wasn't just because he bought does all. He talked diet and put hashtag bitcoin. It was because now. The tesla i look. Let's be honest about this Point five billion dollars of bitcoin. That's the mall when it comes to capital but if you dig a little bit deeper and you start rain in between the law ends of how long he's been talking about cryptocurrency and how he's involved with non himself i assure you i'm sure he's involved wrestling. But with tesla sought on one unravel that a little bit now show Some studies going to accept bitcoin. And if you can see what lamborghini days when you know in two thousand and seventeen where land beginning saw accept. Bitcoin is pilot for the motor vehicles. That mccain win lamb by you know. There's always named saddam about lamborghinis. Lamborghini didn't back bitcoin that he's accepted. You're going on mosque now. Who has not accepted it. But he hasn't accepted yet but he's backed it by going into now. There will be a time. I am fairly sure of where any touchstone believe. I haven't read everything about it. I caught the busy day where they'll accept bitcoin and at time you gotta think about. What is the community. Give the community gives back to those at help the community gripe and i think it's an absolute bloody moss strike because as this new you know parade on the finance and whatnot comes around. I forget the taxi high tells them what not hide airbnb only different places the So try to fought against Progressional spurs part of this put. The banks don't like bitcoin and it's because the bank's can saving obviously threat to to their empire. You're gonna moscow's out there doing his thing and there's a lot a big millionaires billionaires that have been created three bitcoin cryptocurrency if he's going to accept bitcoin as a method of pilot. Then i think it's an absolute buddy. Moss destroyed for him to put one point five billion in to tuzla in in bitcoin. I'm and maybe he'll go more possible trends. I'm sure he certainly thinking about on the dan if he's not but that one point five billion he's already put in would probably you know what he'll pick up if he accepts. Bitcoin will be far more than one. Point five billion dollars in sales now whether you look at him as the master of you know the universal massive pot of cryptocurrency. Now it's just a smart
Dissecting the Rise, Fall and Future of Topshop
"What do you think talk shop representative young costumers here in the uk because this was prior to the international expansion. And all of that. But i remember coming to london during that time and it was. It was a destination you know it was a place that people all around the world had heard because it had become kind of representative of that kind of cool brittannia moment and all of the stuff that was happening in the uk at the time. What did young customers feel about the talk shop brand. After after this all of this new activity. I think they felt that it was as unite bill. A kind of a real ownership of it on a at this hour as we great because with because we've sort of created together but like you know it was something let's talk if that makes any sense as a so that brings me to the question. That's on so many people's minds this week as we hear the news of top shop being acquired by a sauce you. Where did things begin to go wrong for top shop in. What was the tipping point where top shop began to lose. Its way well. I think it's a very difficult question to answer. In some ways. I mean young. Fashion is roussel. you have to be constantly reinventing yourself to make sure that you'll always relevant to your customer base. I felt well. You know bennett grain had taken over a two thousand. I had been very clear as soon as he joined the business. I didn't want him today any conflict. Because he wasn't china he was. You know an acid struck him more than anything else. He bought as an insult them again. I had a lot of conversations when he was not a retailer. In the way that i saw a return should be said was sort of capture the margins in the business but then pejorative that time. He then broke kate. Moss and hats off to him. She was a great choice at the time we hadn't wrote any celebrities weeks outlets limiting wasn't really talk shop. It was all about design evoke nelson. I knew that she would be incredibly with the with the talk shop customer base but also knew that it would it allowed to get into top shop if he lied to enter into an stop being apart top shop and i knew that i couldn't work with him. I could. I could do this with my team because we were all incredibly passionate because we understood it. I could not with him. Why not because we just had temporarily different views about everything is was that you basically that the buying decision was that you bought something as cheap as you could possibly buy. A new sold differs much. As you'd be get foreign mike. Philosophy was that you would make sure that you designed on bought something. That was so amazing that no one will be able to resist. It said we will philosophically. We had a very different view. The business so assigned that he took over he i think he felt that he knew young fashion that he could cross the business. And i'm sorry but you know he's he's. He's a middle-aged mom who doesn't have very much retail general certainly didn't ever about young fashion on. I think from that moment on probably He started to make decisions about cultural. Besotted run it in a way. That's a Realize that that a business needs to be constantly. Reinvented that you need. Passion within the union huge passion from everyone involved and if those people are not as passionate Do i really have to do this. then i think it's i think he is very quickly. My feeling was that before he kinda came into it. It was like we were a room full of people together. All of us creating together something. We were terribly proud of. I'm so it was amazing but we were doing it together. I think he his his view much was was a top down management. I'll tell you to do that. You'll do it. And i think that's not just a very very different thing. You know if someone says to me you've got you do that. Yeah i'll do it. But maybe i'll do it but i wanted to very well whereas if i feel on upon something creating something that i will give it everything and i think that's what it needs and needs everything. Is that ultimately why you decided to leave that. You could bring your everything you know what what happened to precipitate your departure. Well just just. Purely the fact that i knew that he he had an end that he would now become involved in social and a half million. Just didn't want to work for that. You know. I didn't have to work for him. You know and also. Let's not forget. I was by that time in my early. Booties and i kind of thought you know what this is. This is young high russians. I am no longer opposed. I kind of grown answer bit. I could do something else better. And i could give everything to another to another type of business. Oppose the other thing that was happening of course during the rise of top jump was also the rise of other big fast fashion houses whether that be zara or you know h inam the other new giant global companies looking back now the companies. That took that as fast approach to fashion are now really being in the the really the kind of the focus of fashion's Climate crisis challenge. You know the all of the training that we've given to customers to buy things cheap by things often and then dispose of garments. How do you see that whole fast. Fashion sector now. Top shop included with the addition of players like a sauce and boohoo. People calling them. Ultra fast fashion. It seems to me that it's this part of the fashion industry. That's most problematic as we think about this. Ten years left before we can get these carbon emissions under control industry that contributes ten percent of global carbon emissions. What's what's your take on that. Now while i you know a lot of people that have accused me of having been one of the False fashion and then sort of turned around and said a watch. Now it's it's not the right thing to do. But i. I never set to to create disposable passion. I says create something that was accessible to you. Know the great things are accessible to a lot of people and it's been on a journey myself in over the last sort of. I guess ten years. When i began to start feeling that this was moving in that. This was wrong that you know that we were that the fashion had lost its value. If you like that would just literally buying things in throwing them away wearing wants to moving because it was so cheesy do that i began to feel seriously compromised by that and began to build that i that i should leave the business and five because i couldn't i couldn't Begging apartment of such an incredibly damaging industry which which we now know that it is and to buffet and we didn't really know not Templeton fifteen years or so prior to that we did pass. We didn't know what we didn't think about it. And i think. I think it's it's very difficult and i always seems to me is certainly in young false fashion that the the they the customer base it is soon of splitting and that you have only sort of what the numbers but but it feels like this little v fifty percents Who recognized that. Passion is a real problem and have moved to depop hamilton. To buy vintage charter shots. Recycling up cycling read cetera. And and yet. I'm still two percent who are still buried addicted to is seriously mean. That addicted took Having things immediately. I think it's very hard to say those people. You can't have that. I think what you have to do is offer some sort of bad but alternative is as exciting or is as as tempting or whatever the sort of the yes away from from from. What is that doing. Because i agree with you. I mean it almost feels like we're coming to an end. Endpoint what. I do take what i am. Encouraged by is the fact that if you nonsense question about ten years ago i would have said that. Eighty percent people was with selected fashion. Maybe ten fifteen twenty percent. We're actually starting to realize that there was a different pop that could travel

If i can't be out fishing. I should be talking about the. It'd be well below zero tonight. So that's probably one of the big motivations for patrick and i to start this podcast. We both have young families. And we're both avidly into the outdoors whether it's fishing hunting or of both. So that's our goal is to You know recruit new new anglers and new hunters to the to the outdoors around. The timing is really appropriate for unit. We've got a whole new.

It was like a dead zone fishing. I mean there's there's really not much closer unless you're going to drive like two hours to glendow three and a half hours to seminal five hours to voice in like you just forget about it. There's just nothing there so you're talking about teaching people. I was reading that as much as could. Because i knew when i went. I had to really capitalize on those trips and sell ob.

Make sure you take him when you can get a bit people. I i mean i can't old is powered pork edges especially with the younger ones. That have a short attention. Spans inter is critical. That baba's going down or something pulling on the end of that line and Are that's one in even with a new adults and we have a lot of those coming into the sport now that have never fished before and yes. They have patients where the young people don't however their patients will wane after one or two trips without getting up by. It's the biggest hinderance that i've seen to our sport and your people neck key is getting a bit a bike. Too late that fire they gotta catch something and You don't wanna take him out in this herbal weather conditions yet the weather good into everything your power to make sure that they get back in there and the reason people fish in continue to fish is they had a good experience and a good experience is something pulling on the end that the wire gets really the reason you're out there. That's what motivates people is the miracle of of this. It is amazing to me. My entire life in this business to see would fish can do this change. Somebody's like yeah. Yeah you know a kid sitting under edging blue gills and all of a sudden nowhere. A two pound bass runs out reminders. That back and grabs your bank. You never had. You're catching a six inch blue gills and having a ball in this best is your hook break where your life forever somebody had never muskie fish. You know they heard something about it.

It's an image yet burns into your into your spirit that change. It never goes away. That's what likes to fire in this sport. And here's why it's so important. That that their two n into good weather to do it in your. That's the key is to get get a matching get a matching get them and then if they're really young after three hours to think to run into live whether you get a few fish rockets there fascinated with fish bouncing around in a live That's the key really.

Welcome rarities Actor to it these days. It's a lifestyle business that you want to get into anything cup. Lack of time it is. It isn't in ninth the fact you you know you eat sleep twenty four hours or so you go to bed at night thinking in still today at the. That's been in this my life. There is not one and go. That goes by that. I don't read something about fishing. Watch something about fishing. Talk to somebody about dishing. It happens all the time. Not a day goes by where some aspect of it is in touch in my life. A part of my life in My closest friends are pretty much involved in fishing industry. Right closest friends. Are that sparks your question for me. L. and that's you know i'm kinda way way beginning of this journey. I've got a small family run company but it's in the hunting outdoor space. And you know. My boys are being raised growing up when we work right. We have stuff to do. There's it's a small family run business. it's not you know. Dad goes to work at nine. And we're we're done at five and let's go do x and y but my question is long term for me. My dad took me fishing law. And now i go hunting and now. My boys are in a hunting company being raised. How did you see kind of the transition of with raising these kids. In the company in fending fishing industry they stayed on and continued to fish and still thrive as that was our was that a positive experience for them. Oh yes yeah. Yeah for a number of now. There's some of them that was not. I'll use my to poison example. My oldest son george in here in heat you shared with the. I'll give you my first experience with it. needs he. He was raised in the business. He worked in. It works wade through until they went off to college in it but he was interested in fishing gets his passion in his case. Was things that move fast snowmobiles motorbikes four wheelers dirt bikes. This is what he loved to do. Sounds like we'd get along pretty. Well do troy and the other hand off from the time. He was a little tiny kid. You could see the seat of he would be back in front of our h- house here a day and night catching frogs and just running up and down the bank catching he'd loved it from the time he was four or five years old internet. Never change he absolutely left. And i just think again. God created all slightly different with different interests and is a good thing. You had one boy in the garage tinker on motors and going faster and you had another guy you couldn't keep at the house. He was taking his fishing pole and he was to the water at four and five. Yeah in in in you and your the answer. Paracha half have respect know. I respect that. They have to be their own person in in in seek out for thinks the all that you know that those different interest levels impacted their right as they were growing up in reading some cases to to what they're doing today you know again my son toys into it in a lot of different areas of my oldest son and interestingly he he he liked even as a kid. You're living on the edge. He here you love the excitement of the snowmobile races today. He he'd get so pumped on yet in today. He's he's the paramedic he's a wilderness paramedic in he's fighting fires -fornia loves the game. You're whites. He likes ribbon on the edge to me. I like living on the salary to belated contentment. That's what i really like. And you know. I follow troy on social media and that that guy is always out doing something. And he's. he's an incredible fisherman. I mean it's it's yet it just anything anywhere any way any loves digging around in offbeat places for a coupla. He's got he's got pack whereas in no matter where he goes scurrying rats. He sees the body of water anywhere. Anything they could hold the fish he just drives up insider road. And rodney goes spacious anywhere anywhere crapping around the country with him because spent he's spent some time out west and i know he's fish some areas where i've been and it's just kinda cool to see that and i do want to ask you a question about that. Everybody has some of those favorite moments. What it was like a favorite moment for you fishing with your kids that you can recall the years ago with troy. I'll give you a. I'll give you my my oldest son that never got turned onto it and here's winter. Mistakes that make made with the there was a series the best tournament series. Starting in minnesota zillion years ago it was called the northstar bash turned into and when he was about four years old. I took an pre fishing. Mary and i got a cabin on the lake. And i took him pre fishing for that tournament with me and he had snoopy rag. You had snoopy rag. And they had to wait spinner baits. Then you know it was cool. We're up in the morning out. Who day thinking around. He's dragging this spinner baits through the water. And you know. I'm trying to catch some fish. Internet little said something. It's something from we'll get more moves out to have been great you you you hold in iraq ruled colin. He looks at me. it looks at the rad. He throws looked at me again. I got the message. You burn me out so bad. And so i think there's a balance there were so you know. My dad took me steelhead fishing. And i've i've got quite a few steelhead to my name. And if anybody out there knows steelhead there they can be finicky and tricky fish to catch i. I mean the passion for catching them is kinda gone. I've i've i've been out steelhead fishing and i've seen this in the hunting industry where you know you get some guys. That are pretty. Some prowess in are pretty successful. They take their sixteen seventeen year. Old son out. He shoots a world calibre elk and ten years later. He's he's not in elk cutting he's into fishing or snowmobiling or something else does. Ruggles images of the other side of that story would try. What are the experiences a for a number of years we as a family.

And what are some tips that you give people when they're going to a brand new fishery and they've never been there before. What do you tell him to look for. And what are some tips that you give them.

Water clarity stabilized. Image is endless. In comparison to what we had sixty years ago running through the changes that i've seen are gathering in the business of what the liberal. But you could do so much preliminary work you know. Get getting on your computer Checking out google earth. Going to local site Hunting down to let local reports.

But i wanted to change gears just a little bit One of the things that have admired you for years is that you're not afraid to talk about your faith and i think that that's very important thing and you know i want to see if he can share just a little bit about your spiritual journey and how god is played a big role in your life after the two most important parts of my life. The next year shared all all the time. It's fishing in my unity. Go hand in hand every day. Day is just part of my life. I integrated what we do with the television shows. You know the the impact that it it a try to kind of quickly for you until the time. I was thirty five years old. You know i was a person. It was not an atheist store. Nick knight that nasdaq. I probably would have favored more upper eighty s. And i don't believe anybody that spends any amount of time in the outdoors anywhere can be an atheist. I think that's an impossibility. But i had no really. I was obsessed. And i guess that's the only word i could use obsessed with fisher twenty four seven. That was all that and you know. It gets all in our businesses. Were building at that point in time and At thirty five started giving turkey in my heart to Right to spirit a guy who was just tugging in my heart. I met people that that Turned her life over to the lord. Lord that were hard party hard-drinking people that i knew a hard partier. You know when they were like a different person you night and day and he started to talk to me about about jesus guy stuff i never heard of before the enemy sound comes with a lot of people you gotta understand nothing really new number and then i started the search knowing there's life got you got your busse heart who's much of his life in in one day turned us away lord has given us percents and i says well i i can't do it myself i need help i need your direction. I'm just saying guidance. Any made a confession of faith. Like they're nice and his life and then for about two years you know i wandered around back. Studied the word guide. The bible began challenged thing to me to get through a through know little things like could this really be real. You know like so many people. It's this bible. Could this stuff really. But this this thing is is there a guide the foundation guiding coke. Jesus was the foundation. Is this thing that he really is is. He says he is to be comfortable recently. Said he did from beginning to end. Yeah you know. And i started looking at this stuff. You know one day it got out of my head arc. It was never less years. All i can say is if you truly search is real. He's there you care some words to be. It's a real experience. You know the the point he's got to get out of your head in it. You have become a part of my everyday life. I'm not ashamed for the dash. That's it openly. That's who lamb. And i can only share the experience that i hear. And how would i life. My family My outlook on business. Now look on life right back by relationship with my wife and the older. I get a clearer easier. It is for me out to be more appreciative of of my lord grayson so al. I've got a question. It's a immuno high positive this way in a as starting my own business in the outdoor industry and then walking in faith in how how has that affected you know business decisions and just in a living in the limelight and and outwardly expressing. Your faith is there. You know ever moments of doubt. I mean 'cause i in today's society and day and age is definitely not something that's widely accepted. Are you saying in here by some subject back. But what would you buy. S- i mean as far as just running a business and then walking in faith. I if you look at the marketing partners that i have every single one of a from boat motor rag reels lures lying a wreck. Chronics are the top right at the top of their field in their individual categories. Everyone of and we've been with them for many many many years. Some of them almost my entire career. And i've said in corporate boardrooms all over the country. Go going all over television space over television network and contract saying that we re mega conglomerate and never have. I had one of say anything about my confession of faith and that show it all. Most of them have said they appreciated it and go forward and one of the reasons for that is an and some of them are not people but they businesspeople and the bottom line. Is i self stuff for. That's what i still stuff on. I do my job or am i would absolutely. That's why they don't you know so it's it's a only one. Major major challenge would network. It was who was with a network and and jerry jones johnson. They want forgot about guy that that was the words that they came back came back and they said that it's interesting the way they did notification we played on this network for a number of years and this particular year correct when just the way it always hits in five weeks into the show and it was a wednesday afternoon when it got where got i got contacted by the president of networking. And he said it's gonna pull the show because you're religious stance on it. We don't believe it's we. We went network anymore. This was on a wednesday. We get i managed. They did this going to pull it if we did we. Did we read it. Every i reiterate that we think energy i get contract signed with a bunch of sponsors and i had to deliver the numbers in so we get at that show and euronet weekend in the entire re edited version. And we continue our attorneys. Said you know you've been with. They want to take the court. You can't beat it you got. You ran for five weeks already. You did this for years. They never get it. They can't do for this thing and and they talked iran in in my wife. Laura his wife's no we'll go to thorough. They don't want you. i don't i don't want to be there. they want. They want us to be pulled what they want. They wanted to be this what we did back to show to them. We make the changes in our last of the contract for the television season. We sent them with bill. They said the bill hearing on pitching to us and we sent them the bill. Bill them back or the editing changes. We have to make sent it back. I never heard from them. That i didn't pay for the network in europe. Charge them back for all of the pain and misery went back bent. So it's no legal. Nobody called us back. Matt a single thing the legal. Nobody their legal. Nobody never heard from him since well. I'm really glad that you guys you know you. Un ron have have always been good about you. Know talking to people about your faith and it's been a centerpiece of the show and one of the parts of the show. The actually look forward to a bunch is the very end when you go through whatever god lays on your heart and i really just want to say. Thank you for doing that because we need to be able to talk about these things and i. It seems like culture is trying to move in a direction where they don't want you to talk about stuff that might offend somebody. But it's like you know these are things that we should all be talking about. You know if that's part of your life that's an integral piece. You should be able to talk about it. And there's one one thought i have on that. Patrick is to speak to have speech to have thought. You risk being offensive. Right to someone. And i mean if we're just gonna walk around muzzled and mass and never have a conversation about anything i mean. I'm into big game hunting that that can be offensive. Catching fish can be offensive. So we have to push back. We have to go. They'll run over here if you don't get you know and i'm a big thing an immediate business all my life. I'm a big believer a freedom of expression freedom of speech. Even if i don't with it so am i even. If i don't agree with it you still have a right to share. I understand and i respect it. And i think that's something that people need to remember. Is that just because somebody says something. You don't like doesn't mean you have to agree with them. You can just choose not to listen to that person anymore. I mean there's there's stuff that's put out all all the time that i don't listen to and i don't want to be associated with because i don't agree with what their stance is and you know there's plenty of stuff that i do love to watch and listen to that. I do agree with people that disagree whether you should catch fish on spawning beds are not right in an argument about that or you can easily selena when you can easily get there. But but again. I i like i said i. I respect our our freedom speeches. An expression is an important thing. I've been in the media business my life all my life and in people have a right this year that i have i a right. The like to tune into a cheddar offer. Do whatever i want with it not read it. I can exercise my own decisions. I'm not gonna go in there in equality sponsors sponsor them. Because you're doing this dead. I never do. And i think that's something that needs to be heard and i'm glad that somebody i'm sure a few people here it on this podcast but what you said is very true. We don't need you know this. Cancel culture of of things that you know. Ripples need to be able to share and people need to be adults about it and mature enough to handle it and choose what they want to listen to what they don't. I mean that's it's it's really part of the backbone of what what our country was supposed to be about and Were anyway i do to change gears. Just a little A guy that's been really influential in my life on fishing is pat o'grady. I met pat. Oh man that's probably been twelve thirteen years ago. And he was getting his company started. And i jumped in and helped him out with. Pk lures and here. He had told stories about you coming out to wyoming and doing some fishing. I remember reading. In the law. ally wisdom books About seminole and a few things. So i just wondered if you could share a little bit about coming out to wyoming. Western space are so different than northern or ride scary. Yo it's a whole different world and you mentioned to you mentioned alluded earlier when they get used to is. Never any wind ever ending win in. I mean if you go if you're going to fish you better better get used to win. Better not bothering you. The rick the vote right the handle nbc and being a safe piece the piece of equipment. They handle wind in it. I don't know if you guys ever go through three straight days in a row word you calm day never. I don't think lever happen. I go to archery shoots. And i have people say well. I'm not shooting in the wind and they start playing. Oh the winds blow. And i said well you come to wyoming. If you don't shoot or hunt in the wind just don't go hunting joke. Defeat w. t where we go to the code is as an example. You look at the weather report the night before they they say the win the window. We from fifteen to twenty five. It means it's going to be forty plus asu. It'd be forty dollars. Plus that's what you're going to get the truth. Well you talk about seminar. That is one of the windiest places. I think in the lower forty eight. I mean the the wind speeds on that reservoir are ridiculous. But i'll tell you the fishing is phenomenal. How many winter they put around it. Yeah they put a lot of wind turbines that sucker for good reasons but those western reservoirs growth big fish. Hey we're trying to keep that a secret. Al off carp fish is amazing and even some very. I'm a small mountain. i love smart fishing. The small mouth world small mouth. Fishing is as popular as it's become the tournament organizations. That have the come up north and since two small fishing and a great lakes and now they're coming everywhere yet yet you know you get to experience it in tournaments Love it the small mouth. Fishery that exists. West of the mississippi river is still some of the most unexplored smart fishing in north america systems. I can't you're innocent. At west of the river or to western states many of those reservoirs got phenomenal phenomenal. Nominal bishop i. I liked to tell the story. I've told a couple of times there's a. there's a river in oregon. I won't give the name but an all out to you. We drift boat floated at one day. And i hooked sixty small mouth in a day and i got tired of jagan forum. So i put on a mouse pattern. I tied and i caught. You know half a dozen small. He's on a mouse pattern. Just throw it right against the bank and start stripping out and they'd at that river this drift boat only so motorboats in that that can be a lot of fun i mean those are their sparkling out there and some of the some of the bigger systems pick the missouri river as an example for four. You've got set at saf. You've gotta wacky a. These are massive bodies of water massive massive systems and their in in in in there. I mean the small muppet. Nobody hears coast that they won't see an angler in your role year for small. Nobody'll be their four. Pack four pack is one of the most remote fisheries. I've ever been to. And i'll tell you what they're there have got to be miles and miles of shoreline that never get fished and i mean there's massive massive in their own up in way up at that even at the dry air dry air too short that is about what forty i think. That's forty miles long. And then you've got that main arms like one hundred and sixty miles long. There's very few accesses. Oh yeah you know you're right. I remember we had a pw heat from the tournament. They're in what we we got the attention that anisimov parsons weighed in. It was kabaya. They rent way when came to brought the smart in with his bad fish. So we could wait and it was like a six three or six or this. Was that smaller. That miniature scale in your macro swarm are up in san francisco. I couldn't pull about about have to lead. Somebody's somebody structures. Just drive in his crazy ton of them in there. That's an incredible says. I said there there miles up. It is the most untouched massive untouched mama. Fishing attack. the guy goes through not to mention some of the. There's one night and forget. That warned that they bleed. I think they believe their next record. Birsh sure commander there. I can't remember to saturday with no gather some wells. Old anti yeah. There's some fantastic fisheries out here. And i know just in wyoming alone. I mean you've got a number of really good reservoirs for walleye and you know a couple for small mouth that are really significant and a whole bunch that are good for trout of various species. And of course he got flaming gorge with those humongous lake trout. And that's and that's an incredible fishery to we touched on earlier smarter and they've they've kinda taken a dive the they they think that the Burbot that made their way there. Somehow somebody moved burbot down there into that drainage from apparently around this area and They just haven't they haven't done as well they they were doing really well in the early two thousands. I used to go down there with my dad and we'd catch some up to four four and a half pounds and now it's pretty hard to find them. They're still there. They're just not in the quantity that they used to be environmentally. Then yep There's something to be said for that. You know when i grew up steelhead fishing. You'd spend a lot of hours and when you finally hook into one of those thirty forty inch fish. I mean they they take you for a ride for a while but you can fish for two three four days before you even catch one hook one hook up you go small fishing and have those fisher so dang aggressive are fun. It's fun so that's one of the beauty of them. Yeah there's a there's a little reservoir here in wyoming that kicks out you around five pound fish. Pretty regularly And i i went there with a buddy of mine one time and we are fishing. Top water thing between josh. And i we we both got probably fish apiece just fishing little poppers on the surface in it was just a lot of fun and then that thing that you talked about al that happens in wyoming happened in the wind blowing really really hard to get off their old of the gun the boat for your life. Get your your jacket on. Got what. I'll tell you that much we got wet but so what's what's next. What's in the future. What's what's you know. What do you plan on. what's coming up. What are we. Should we be watching for and getting a little long into or the age also slowing down. A little bit i mean jimmy wego muskie fishing me for four hours. I ain't gonna go in our barrett fats or two pound rubber. Big thing can happen. You're only as old as you act. Al see you know strongest kid. My body doesn't want my five. You don't want to receive that. There are things that are wearing down a little think. That's wisdom speaking to abandon. No too so. I i have to pick pick and choose a little bit a little bit more but i still loved the game. I mean know as long as i can contribute that this sport in a positive way. I'm gonna do it. i'm not gonna. i'm not going to quit. I'm not gonna retire up. Going to crack back. And i mean by cutting that i wanna do more fun fishing on the shows. Jimmy jeremy that the staff and other people we work with. I'd like to see troy get a little more involved with this stuff. These guys you pick up the ball and run every night for long enough to fund fish a little bit more by that go do some things and places a lot of bodies of water that i'd like to play around a little bit now for two hundred and a lot of people don't understand that you know when you're going fishing for the weekend without a camera crew that that can be quite pleasurable when you're going filming for an episode that can be you know when you gotta redo takes a redo when you just wanna go explore to make it happen you gotta make. It's working people don't they. They sit in their living rooms and watch that and go. Oh well they were just they. Turn the camera on and went and had a fun time. There's a lot of hours behind the scenes when the cameras work was in. And then there's a year no it's addressing a lot of times a lacking half and on hot fight fetched but then when you dress the show after that. That's when you get the underwater cameras stuff out to fit. That fit the scene where the fisher coming in in to get the right drum shots environment. Those those all add to the editing and make it a little more exciting the music tracks that that go with it. you know. Music is so subtle in you know a lot of shows don't use music because you have to pay Their cost us thirty thousand dollars a year to use a music so yeah bachelor of music track because their royalties and alma my companies right in this is our very first go. My dad and i went she putting this last fall. We hired a cameraman and we took him. And i'm learning very quickly of the shortcomings of we didn't get you know. Be roll. Shot here and this extra shot here and you know getting that underwater shot or that overhead shot that you need in. It's you know it's really hard now to recreate and get those extra shots that we need to produce the film that i wanna purdue so make a real exciting piece you back. That'd be rollers goals man just putting the actual the actual easiest park. It is actually catching deficient getting their artist on films that easy. Then you've everything else is putting it together. It's all better than that anything. Sweetening the more things you have to compliment. Show the better. It becomes the up on where we're struggling. We're stretching it as as as as we can stay but it's fun man fun. It is a lifestyle worth living. Believe me i if you if you could do it.

Shake his hand and say thanks But w quicker next time patrick. Yes but now. He's got to spend an hour talking with him and he's he's a wonderful guy and he's made an impact on my life that you i can only just tell you guys that it meant a lot to me today to be able to talk to him when i was younger. My mom passed away. When i was fourteen and after my mom passed away one of my things that it was kind of an outlet for me was fishing just to get away clear my head get away from life and my dad. I remember one saturday. He took me down to cabela's in sidney nebraska which is about a hundred miles from cheyenne. So he went to sydney. Bought some fishing gear but we also went and we found that they had a rack of in fishman. Vhs tapes and books and so we picked up those things and brought it home. And i mean. I was in those things. Like you wouldn't believe you know on those rough winners of shan that i keep talking about you know with the wind. Cystic crappie fishing. That was there. And i don't mean the fish you know we we would watch those videos. And we'd get amped up for that next trip to the gorge to catch small mouth or that trip that we had that next year where. We just clobbered the ele- perch walleye at poison. So you know those kind of things really mean a lot to me and just al and just the way is just how he has so much. Fun has so much joy around fishing. It's just so inspiring to me and so having him on was a big deal. You know for me today so it was great but i learned that and positively right. Vate faith and fishing is what he said. But you if if you're not having fun in this industry and he really did hit the nail on the head. Yes it's it's nice to be able to get to a point. You could make a living at it. But if you wanna make money go to silicone valley go go go create the next app or whatever the next thing is you make money and live that lifestyle but you know he touched on it. He's been in the industry for longer than about anybody and he still working i. It's it's crazy.

"This career girl preferred solitary drinking the blackout. Kind often hoping she'd stay that way for keeps but providence had other ideas. I wasn't always alcoholic. In fact it has only been within the last fifteen years that i changed from a fairly normal control drinker into an alcoholic. I don't mean that. I went to bed one night. A normal drinker and awoke the next morning as an alcoholic. It wasn't that simple. I started drinking socially and at parties. And proms when i was about twenty years old. I didn't like it particularly at first. But i did like the effect i got from it. It made me feel quite grown up and mature. And i think another added attraction was the fact that so far is my family was concerned it was forbidden and it had a special attraction for that reason after a while i really did enjoy drinking and what it did to me and i became dependent on it for every occasion eventually. The day came when i was dependent upon it even when there wasn't any occasion when i didn't have anything else to do a dull evening at home i'd sneak a few drinks upstairs in my room and that began to be a habit in nineteen thirty nine. I went on my first weeks. Bender of solitary drinking locked up in a hotel room because my family opposed my coming marriage. I figured that. Perhaps if i went ahead with that marriage which i was sure was right for me. That would be the answer to my drinking problem. I thought i would be quite happy. And never would i drink too much again. So i that i think my first feeling of fear came with my first week. Solitary drinking locked up in that hotel room. The hotel management knowing that something was wrong sent for doctor. The doctor apparently realizing that one thing that i certainly needed was sleep. Left a bottle of sleeping pills there and in my drunken state i took them all instead of the one or two he had prescribed. If it hadn't been for an alert hotel made. I might have died then from that time on. Fear was with me. Because i realized that not only would i not remember what happened to me while i was drinking but apparently i couldn't control what happened and there didn't seem to be anything to do about it. Having passed over the border line the next five years were filled with fear failure and frustration tragedies during those years that were caused by drinking such as the breaking up of my marriage. The death of my child other things had little restraining affect in fact. Sometimes they served as good excuses to drink more to forget it was in washington. Dc that this transition took place and that the really bad part of alcoholism began happening. The last christmas i spent in washington fourteen years ago comes to mind only a few days before christmas. I went to the dentist for periodic checkup. X-rays show that a couple of teeth had to come out. I hadn't been drinking much about that time for. I had begun to realize that there was something abnormal about my drinking. Although as yet i didn't realize that it was so out of control on the day set for the extractions on my way to the dentists felt a little nervous so i had a couple of drinks and after the teeth were out i was very nervous so i had a few more when i got home. My mouth was very painful. So i got an ice bag and went to bed the next day the ice bag and i were still in bed but we had a bottle to my pattern of drinking at that time had reached the point where once i really started i would retire to my bed and drink myself into oblivion. The rest of that week is pretty hazy.
Interview With Mary Anne Shearer
"Today into being a lady who's pretty well known here in south africa. Her name is maryanne sheera now. Maryanne is a woman before had time. She wrote a book called the natural way more than twenty years ago. An only now is the way of life. She advocates going mainstream on apart from being an author. Marianne is a motivational speaker. And she runs a very successful pekan restaurant as well as running natural health programs. I'll begin by asking maryanne satele to bit about herself. I had serious health problems which included being bipolar had kids at had ear infections tonsillitis runny noses that was high blood pressure so we had these kind of. I call him normal health problems because it wasn't like the big three cancer heart disease diabetes. It was just all like niggly stuff that was affecting our relationships and was affecting the way we functioned from day to day. And i have always been interested in the human body i prob- i might have become a doctor. But i'm i'm glad i didn't because it made me look for answers and other places so i was fascinated with the human body studied physiology anatomy and chemistry in the sciences and i was fascinated with the how the human body worked. So we're not. We started having these problems and we were being treated traditional medical way with anti anti-inflammatories and antihistamines for a head allergic dermatitis. On my hands and the kids with antibiotics just didn't make any sense because nobody actually got well. all it doesn't seem to do is suppress symptoms. And then they'd come back two weeks later. I saw the athol up. Gotta find answers. This was long. Before the era of google that really dates meet And just go and do a search on google. And the closest i've got to google was on several occasions sneaking into the fits medical library in johannesburg and he are trying to find says there and looking at books in the archives and just like nobody really had answers to my questions had to find the myself now. I really believed because i could see the. You'll buddy actually repays itself if you cut your finger to paint it stop. You don't need to go and you know cost a spillover it or go to the doctor. My fingers cut itself. Please can drug. I mean unless you chopped to finger off you'd want to beg on but just a cut finger. Paper cut irritate you. It hurts but you it just eventually repays itself and and if you study the human body like a did you find out that the liver you can actually cut off your liver out. Remove it entirely donated to somebody else. Give the small lobe to somebody else in the big global grow and then you've donated your smaller that logo groesbeck like this is the most amazing thing and yet when it comes to lever cancer you told is no cure for it. You're going to die while you would because you're going to be given all these drugs and you live a second will just get sick and pick up than you will die so i was looking for ways to correct the looking for the causes and then ask trying to fix the causes. I did find that. Nutrition made a huge difference. When i changed my diet. Took after find sugar and my by pella symptoms when my crazy periods of manic unbelievable highs. We are could take on the world. And i was going to change the world and i'm actually by nature very idealistic person and my mission in life is i want to change the world. One person at a time. I want to get them healthy enough. Got the goal to reach. A million people wrote a book called the natural way it came out in nineteen. Ninety-one was a runaway bestseller according to the publishers and it sold as i say of three hundred thousand copies it's been published in the united states. The funny thing is it seems to be taking of now first published in the states in two thousand five fifteen years not getting traction. So it's like if it does take off and i happened to reach the new york times. Basically nobody can ever say was an overnight success at this pathetic years. So you're a woman before your time. Someone emission to really help people if i can get rid of my bipolar symptoms and be completely sane And and thinks straight and have a brain in and and bow bowels and bladder that works properly all the time and be living in that sweet spot of health than anybody can do it. Because i had terrible problems. Janet
"fifteen years" Discussed on Slate's The Gist
"To remember him. Speaking this way melissa corogne melissa crone who is an american citizen. And who has filed an affidavit under penalty of perjury so that woman melissa koran. Did sign an affidavit. She swore that had happened. The accusation therefore edged closer to proof and when melissa croon herself testified before michigan state. Lawmakers guess what tactics. She used proof through accusation. And i signed something saying that. If i'm wrong. I can go to prison did you. Because i'm making the accusation it edges closer to provide signed it after all. No one ever lies. While making an accusation. It is very rare for someone to put their name on something and be lying. Therefore you must believe me when i tell you these. Tens of thousands of voters who signed their names to the election rolls were lying. There's this old phrase about when the laws on your side pound the law and the facts are on your side pound the facts when neither is on your side pound the table. It's one of those expressions the first time you hear it seems kinda clever but it clogs up cable news. Discussions take so long to articulate. Anyway i bring it up now. Even knowing of its viscous rhetorical properties because proof through acusations is saying something like well. I pound the facts then pound the law then pound the table even though you must know that by pounding the table. That alone is quite a significant action. How meaningful it is that. I am engaging in table pounding. You know not. Everyone has a table. The oh it takes time and attention for me to pound the table the very act of contracting my hands into fists. I mean you got. The flexible polices longest of the four forearm. The flexible polices breath of the thumb. Not to mention the hypothetical muscles on the side of the palm. You need to be careful and consider the import and significance of my pounding. The table just as it takes a whole amount of time and attention to book the four seasons really any kind of four seasons in the philadelphia area and also to apply. Hair tonic to say nothing of hours of hours of research on the cracking. I studied the classics. You don't just do that without there. Being a really compelling and deeply truthful reasons so take evidence the fact that. I am asserting that this is evidence. Yes yes yes. You're right the specifics of that argument or ridiculous. also horrendous. The nature of the argument is ridiculous. The fact that this argument is being made and listened to by anyone. All those attorney general's it's disturbing and ridiculous all this ridiculousness is clearly. Why i'm ridiculing it. But this very poor type of argument will live far beyond its deployment in this specific case. So i recommend you watch out for it not succumb to it and especially. Don't ever make it yourself because remember only a very serious person who cleared a high bar of toss would choose not to make such a clearly ridiculous argument over and over again. Such a person by dint of their judgment must be trusted. And that's it for today. Show daniel schrader just producer.

So I wanted to talk about your last episode of flood lines where you have this interview. there's lengthy interview with former FEMA director Michael Brown. You spoke with him for what six hours six hours. Yeah An and and you play the highlights and lowlights. In the final episode of foot lines. Why was it so critical to to sit down with him and and talk about what happened Well I mean I I thing is just I think a Product like this. Due Diligence and we really wanted to talk to people who were involved. In, the decision making we got it from him. We got it from general honorary. We talked to the police chief Eddie Compass We wanted to get their sides of the story and understand what it was like being in that pressure cooker but also it was important for us to talk to Michael Brown because he has become in lots of people's is the face or the scapegoat of the failure in responding to Katrina. And we wanted to talk to him about what the mistakes he that were made actually were looking from the inside whether we could trace the the history of those mistakes whether we could figure out. from his perspective. How we could. Do better the next time but also wanted to get a sense of personally what is like to be escape goat. Whether he had come to terms with his role in it whether he was willing to provide an apology for all the people who are demanding it from him in New Orleans we got a really. Complex Think. Human. Interaction on that and It's one of the pieces that I'm really glad we did it's worth listening to in full. There's a point where he he says that people need to understand that the government's not gonna come and save you. In. The midst of a disaster. Right. My paraphrase in that correctly does what he says no biting shining armor, right? It's GonNa be scary. You're going to be scared. It's going to happen and and then after your interview you went in and revisited one of your subjects. Leon Williams and and played some of this for her. Where he got he you know he don't to say he apologizes because. He's Reluctantly indignantly apologizing to her. that was. A it was meaningful though it was meaningful for both him and her and I think She says the knowledge man matters and. I don't think anybody walks away from it. Having their baseline emotional reaction changed I mean she still thinks he did a bad job at what he at his at his job. But it does represent to me part of the kind of reckoning that we need to do. After these kind of disasters where we do have people you know we can't. Abandon the process of holding people to account because it's been fourteen fifteen years and we can't stop talking to the people who were affected by it just because it's been fourteen fifteen years because. As we try to illustrate. Those were rubber rations they continue to a person's life they continue through generations, and so the act of reckoning is one that we will have to be doing and engaging in purposefully. As long as. We Can Ban. Thank you so much for talking with me. Thank you. And remind people the best ways to go and find flood minds. All right. So YOU WANNA go your browser the Atlantic Dot Com slash outlines place ago and he can also type in flood lines in any year the ways you podcast. Is True is well worth the listen man thank you so much. And just one postscript to this. We're taping on Friday. August twenty first. Big weather have right now is titled. To hurricanes.
"fifteen years" Discussed on Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter
"Sources podcast. So let's cue the music. I'm Brian stelter and this is our weekly podcast edition of reliable sources. Our chance to go in depth with media leaders and newsmakers. fucking about how the news gets made and how it should be made differently. I've always been really really interested in how Hurricane Katrina was covered. By the media. And how different the story of the storm looks? In. The final telling. I'm borrowing that phrase the final telling from. An extraordinary podcasts by the Atlantic called flood lines. The podcast was released earlier this year. And now here we are in. August. Always toward the end of August I, think about Katrina. And the aftermath. We are now the fifteen year anniversary of the disaster. One of the worst disasters in. Americans lifetime's. Do People still think about it that way. What about the failures of government and society and the media? Was the final telling tell us. Well Van Newkirk is a senior editor at the Atlantic. He's the host of bloodlines and he is here to tell us ban. Thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me. When I say it's been fifteen years since the storm hit. How does that land with you? Well. We were reporting flood lines mostly throughout the summer of the fourteenth anniversary and We were always trying to think ahead of what it would be like of what the commemorations would be Obviously, all of our considerations on that front have Kinda gone out the window in the middle of the pandemic but we always thought this show would be an opportunity to reach people for whom you know this receding from their memory folks who are who are grown listeners. Now, who were kids when Katrina happened for people who only absorbed it through a lens where? They, weren't able to get all the information I. Mean I was I was a teenager when Katrina hit. So people like that. We think fourteen anniversary last year the fitting for Serie. This month are opportunities for us to Really get the story that people providing to us out there in a way that that has challenge some people's assumptions about what happened what are you remember of that initial news coverage a in two thousand and five you know what stands out to you the very first memory that always come to me thinking about how I actually watched and experienced. Katrina from Durham North Carolina where I was wasn't the time is the Kanye West George. Bush doesn't care about black people. I was watching the telethon. I was really following closely all the coverage, but that was the one where a lot of different thoughts kinda crystallized in my head about what was going on you know but then other other things that were challenged for me. Even as I was reporting this where we're all the reporting on the the looting, the crime in the city I I had of course, already had a sense that that was a bit sensationalized, but the extent to which it wasn't Asian allies. I didn't really know until we started reporting for flood lawns and that's one of the reasons why this is so important to revisit. You know we're talking about one of the most misunderstood events in American history. What things ample of that finding you know that you all are revisited or visit for the first time So the episode in the new, Orleans Convention, center was to me maybe the most illuminating The Convention Center of people don't remember was a place where thousands and thousands of people gathered after the flood during the flood to escape. It wasn't the official evacuation or shelter last resort point that was the Superdome and so people were there the federal government clam they did not know about. People being there. So it was a big story about win the federal government no in why would they take so long to get them help but underneath all that was apparently now first responders and maybe some federal sources were afraid to go to the convention center because they had heard reports about just epic episodes of violence between armed gang members who were shooting maybe shoot having gun fights inside the Convention Center so. You could see why in that telling why they would not maybe not respond. So quickly to the Convention Center if it was so dangerous nowadays, we call that misinformation or disinformation right and so the misinformation on this front you know they're in the in the final telling out of those thousands and thousands of people who were in the Convention Center I believe authorities collected nine weapons that's not done nine completing Folk nine pieces of total contraband from people who were there which I believe if you screw up a couple thousand people from any city in, put him somewhere. You're going to get somewhere. You know get a handful of weapons, but there was no evidence this type of. Just, read. cartoonish violence was happening in this place and those were the actual very first that we heard coming out of the Convention Center. So they colored how Americans, not Americans how people who are going to help how they saw the situation on the ground and colored who got that help the fastest. It also speaks to the The the way we received information of so messy. So scattershot I think during the Iraq war, it was like in looking through a story through. A paper Straw a plastic Straw, and all you're seeing is what's through that? stroia seen a tiny little sliver of what's happening. I remember when it seemed like the national media discovered the Convention Center Situation You know. What was day four something of this crisis and it was so disturbing that it seemed like the cameras were there. But the cavalry was not that the federal government was not really local government was not there and it was an example of the media being ahead of. Where the rescuers were. So I don't I don't I know that you're you know there's also a lot of errors in the news coverage of this event but I I get the sense. The entire time that the press was almost alerting the government to what was going on is that is that a segment yeah I mean I am a member of the press I don't want to be too down on the press because there were people who were doing the kind of journalism especially around the Convention Center that finally got the help there I think there are lots of different vectors of misinformation and disinformation including the government itself. In this situation I'm glad you mentioned the Iraq war. Because actually I. believe what was happening in terms of how people were getting the news the information was similar you had a demand. From viewers that we get around the clock coverage that we get all these updates on then we get as much information as possible but really there's a real bottleneck at the actual seen in how much information come through. So how you know how we feel that that gap that void is people take secondhand reports they go in amplify things that have been reported and often times we get things like somebody one looter is is arrested coming out of a of a of a of a store and so many people. Talk about that one looter it seems like you've got fifty people talking about looters and it's really fifty people talking about the one looter. Yes. Yes got. Well, it looks even.

"Well all right alex. Hey great talking to you again really appreciate your time. we're back for some more design intent. Myself tony orlando. Daniel phipps aaron hernandez and of course the creator founder. Alex you'll have to pronounce your last name for us. Alex this niece okay. Well let's go. The ad is okay so similar site so happy to talk to you guys Maybe we can you introduce yourself of where you guys worked So the the reason why we gather today is because. I won't do this interview because i often have. This kris jenner of You should be working in their constituency our in house because Differences that can happen at the end of doing years of working. In hostile working inconsistency you will have a very different skaters. So that's why. I think it's it's good to have both side here on in this interview. we antonio who Will introducing serve but is basically designed neither at delta and we have a daniel simpson everyone who are like with fund design. Now at so we really to weld one with the in house we've constituency so that's Good interview to learn on the. What are the pros and cons of each side. Yeah i think that's good. That's a good topic. I know i have people asking me that all the time. I'll let you go first daniel since you're okay you've kind of been around in both worlds. Sure i have the i. I don't know fifteen years of my career. Kinda bounced back and forth a little So right now. I'm with access design actually started the company in two thousand and five so i guess Two thousand and twenty. That would be fifteen years prior to that. I worked for a couple of different Companies delving one of them. I worked for ibm and then another one and in between there i worked at a short stint at it consulting company up in the chicago area as well so for the first part of my career bounced back and forth a little bit and then i kinda finally may finally made the decision of okay thank the consulting thing is is a good place for me to rest for a while and so. That's what i've been doing since. Two thousand and five fifteen years running running your own small business correct consulting for various companies all over the country to some more for international companies as well So yeah and for the record. I've actually hired dan quite a bit to do work for me. Working adele so I'll i'll give a quick introduction of myself. I'll give a bit of a history later. I'll let aaron kinda talk about his his role. But i'm antonio designed enter for latitude no dell and i've been with dell thirteen years now but i've been in the industry for quite a long time erin so my name is aaron and i work here with daniel. I had access. I've been here for a little bit over two years two and a half years and a half years and this is all the experience or real real world. experience have had And i know it's a. It's a huge question whenever you're graduating or you're about to graduate or you're in school it's like what wh- what what she do. She go the consultant route or the more corporate route so i hope People get to learn how many years of experience you have in the field. Two and a half advocate. So that's that's you can give us the formula have i did. I have twenty years of experience. In most of it is inconsistency so we we have like like a goo- good of people different spectrum invasions on the same on this. I if one thing i would say that anybody getting out and design new in the design world or even established the design where i think the most single most important thing he can do is make sure that the the mentor that you work for or with is the right mentor for you. I i think that's you know my career was was the last with with really fantastic. Mentors when i would start at. Ibm right out of graduate school. And if it wasn't for those guys in al i'll name them John swansea was probably the first designer that i worked for for a long time who retired from ibm lenovo a few years ago. He worked there for over twenty five years. I

"If you blind date be it. There's no difference and It's it's a little frustrating to see some of the stuff that's out there And then you hear something. It's amazing and it's like oh so I don't know it's it's curious the whole thing but you were. We were talking before everyone you went to commercial and the rest of US ran into the bathroom. it's good that they have that catheter retired so I I think I like headphones can you and your have. You taught me about headphones back with graders. Us right way back when concern. It's so amazing. All the headphones that are out these days. Yeah and then I bought. And this was Scott. Wilkinson's recommendation he reviewed it Recently this little Dak. It's called a hip. Dak from I fi- and it's it's a battery backed up. You know so it's got its own power and you and you take the USB out of your Mac book which has an okay Dak or Using it with X. P. S. thirteen. And so you just get the digital audio from your device you can use it with your iphone with a right cable and this really makes it big difference then you can put on some put some decent headphones in it sounds good and his way. I'm a little more portable you know. Yeah well my workstation. Yeah yeah actually. Some good speakers with these might be pretty might be pretty good. It's funny like Audio quest who makes Expensive Speaker Cables But they do a whole series. This is their high and one that I got in for review The dragonfly tax in that thing. This is the Dak was the actual physical. These things are ridiculously good. I would start with the black unless you have like. Some player headphones. That require a lot of power. Those things complete overkill for the vast majority but the the dragonfly back is Amazing I am listening on hi. Fi men Electro plane are whatever you should. You should look at Dan Clark Audio and and The a onto that they just came out with. I'm actually getting a set of those in for To take a look at but Dan Clark if they're closed headphones are astonishing. If you're at my age I should probably just wear hearing aids and these are pretty third and there. It's funny 'cause when he came out with the original aons you know I was talking to Mike. You're you're delivering something. It's like as good as your primary product but for half the price and part of his thing is he's just out there kind of blow up the industry and deliver as much mys- breaks his heart. Because there's so many kids listening on these little white ipod headphones or iphone headphones. I don't think the music I really don't that. Also be something. I remember the revision. Three offices I kind of became like you know the man I hear you hear you can make music sound better. I'd like a set of headphones. And then disappear come back. It'd be like you know and even like Santa Sony. Md are seventy five zero six. Which Roberts probably wearing right now or has near like for eight hundred bucks. Yeah those are good head right now. Yeah Yeah heard with an external or a USB Dak That I love from a company called Shit and they're full Cho C. H. I. E. They're very good. Yeah I I do something that gave me a physical knob like old school analog Knob for volume control. It happens to perform perfectly and you're looking for a headphone amplifier. Take a company called J. D. S. Labs I know these guys friends But they're Adam amplifier for ninety nine dollars When you go to someplace like audio science review it's outperforming. The this is a ninety nine dollar inexpensive product. They did because they they do There elements was society. I my old headphone amplifier. Dak kind of trashed they had. Just come out with the element. I fell in love with it. And then the the primary engineer spent a couple of years kind of experimenting and figuring out how to lay out the boards and he's created this. You know I was laughing because they had this like you know. Thirteen hundred dollar said of this very serious audio companies speakers and it was picking up all the noise from thirty four inch curved monitor. It was really frustrating because if there was a pause something. Or if there's a quiet passage I would hear noise from the Monitor. And then this ninety nine dollar headphone amplifier. You could basically like shove it up against the alternator of car and it picked up nothing. I mean you know I it was it was next to this monitor and it was picked up nothing. And it's an amazing like companies like these guys like GPS labs and and again like Mr Speakers. They're delivering astonishing audio quality for not that much money and It's amazing stuff. You guys talk about a Navy Excel. It is talk about T- screens and projectors and content and what's going on in the industry and Yeah Good Roberts Roberts kind of if you if you ever want to know about television's Robert I. He's he is calibrated. Several of my. Tv's thank you Robert Very much. You are very well without his calibration. I wouldn't know if the field is redder.

"You can't oh I didn't know that I I've been using and just have to use apple's messages you for for SMS right. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah you can. You can use it on on Apple. The here's why I don't use signal I remember. Now it's time to a phone number for a normal person. That's fine but if you have if you like. Kevin and maybe me and you have more than one phone. It's no good. You Bernard Phone Leo you just. This is the one on my bedside table. Most of the game I keep my school. Google voice account around just for having that burner number and an account and texting system. That you know what I'll give that out to the public so if I use the google voice number then I could put signal on every phone and just say Oh. It's this number. This is it's number. I don't think that work. I have a separate number for both. I have my so you have to signal accounts. That'S THE PROBLEM. You have one free phone number. I only use signal. You can only do it to your main numbers. That's that's the problem if signal. Look what we just need apple messages with Android Support. We need something that works on. Irs and Android That has a desktop client. That's not tied to a phone number. Frankly that to me is a privacy issue with signal. I don't know why they do that because I know they published a couple of documents recently outlining how they're aware of that buried condition and how it is an issue for a lot of people to join up and it is something. I know the number and they have a way. They've come up with might actually work but they needed to get it implemented in right now. I think they're more concerned about that. New Trust Act or whatever the hell it was that was looking to circumvent and the earning act. Oh yeah that's the name. It's Ernie is more clever than I than I thought I could give. Congress credit for because Congress and the Department of Justice and every government in the world is trying to eliminate end to end encryption. Their position is oh no law enforcement needs to be able to know everything you're doing or we can't stop child pornography or terrorists or whatever. The offensive flavor of the month is but the but the problem is at least in the US. They've done it in Russia they've done in Australia. They've done it in Sweden They've done it in many countries where they say. No no you can't have end to end. Encryption it's up to the signal or whoever you're GonNa make an a plain text version available on forsman if they ask for it. They can't do it in the US because people like us. We'll get up arms so they thought they were clever. Oh we gotta I know will threaten to withhold section to thirty protections the ones that say not responsible for the content on your website your blog you know the the comments on your blog or the videos on YouTube. You're not you can't go to jail or be sued for those because you're just a carrier but they say if that protection you have to earn it by. Yeah you gotta earn it. By following quote best practices in terms of encryption or just in terms of offering your best practices but what they're really team has encryption and who is the final arbiter best practices. Sure they've created a committee but it's all deferential. To the Attorney General the United States of America one William Bar who thinks incriptions the worst thing that ever happened so Stein and Dianne Feinstein who is one of the sponsors of the earn it act so Dick Blumenthal and other sponsor said it's not a bad encryption. We just don't want child pornography. What COMPANIES TO BE RESPONSIBLE? They have to earn their section to thirty protection. But it is about encryption. The funny thing is Dick Blumenthal is going on and on about how you gotta use encryption that needs cut sponsoring this stupid act. It's very offensive. And it's just it's or willow. They don't realize that this is a whack. A mole game encryption is never going away right so you down messaging and guess what you just take up file text file encrypted put it on dropbox chat with someone else you go back and forth and you just keep doing them and it's like it's so ridiculous it's just people are gonna find ways around this. Have you ever used? I loved Magic wormhole about that. That the problem. The problem with using dropbox is dropbox has a copy of courses encrypted but it's there and they you know maybe that sets up a red flag or something magic wormholes point to point so if. I want to send Patrick A secret plan to dominate the world. I would I would use magic weren't hold encrypted and it would give me you know an English pass phrase you know nasal walnut glow nasal walnut. And then I would call. Patrick said Glow Nasal Walnut and hang up. Then Patrick Fire up his magic wormhole type glow nasal walnut and it would do a peer to peer connection. And so no third part. Well I guess the phone company know about it can bit torn had something like that Dan. Recently Right Yeah. Something they did. That was encrypted like that. The problem with bittorrent resilient zillow is they never they never talked about the they never. It's not open source never revealed the protocol So it seems like a good idea. Yeah you'd have a unique identifier. Anyway what are we talking about Google Fi? Oh Yeah and the IPHONE so I hope this doesn't depress you Kevin but John Prosser who by the way I don't I don't know who this guy is. But he's been leaking on twitter and he had every detail of the IPHONE. Se including the name before anybody else did. He even said the release date would be Wednesday.

You're living in like no disrespect to the house last house. I saw you guys sharing we living in a garage and we had used a KIA furniture. That was the old tech. Dvd's those were the good old days also joining us Patrick's partner in crime on Av Excel. It's my friend Robert Harran HARAN FIDELITY DOT COM. Hi Robert Leo. Always good to see. Your House is still empty except for the equipment and that's as it should be pretty much and yeah and a brand new box right behind the other side that thing. I've got on boxing. Now take a look at even talk about it. This is this is. This is like the skis. Jobs photo where he's just squatting on the floor of the stereo equipment around surrounded by cool stuff. Lots of test equipment. I I had the misfortune of going back in preparation for this and listening to that. First revenge of the screensavers which by the way we The acronym Trots was the worst part. Worst POSSIBLE AGAM although it's gotten worse and It was a frankly a painful shirt for Mita. Listen to because I think I was. I was really over anxious. I think I wanted it to succeed so badly that I was pushing too hard and so it was not for me. It wasn't a great show for some reason. I think mostly you guys people wanted to hear it because tech TV had disbanded the year before Kevin was down in L. Doing what was to become was it. The attack of the show at that point Kevin or yep leaves so they changed it pretty quickly to the attack the show. Will they fired? They got rid of Alex. Albrecht which sucked because we had a lot of fun doing that show together and then they brought Kevin Pereira on and then that's when the name change. Yeah change before that. I'm I think it had because I thought I could use the revenge of the screen savers and the and the letter said we're not done with that name yet so. I think that's what that's what happened and Patrick and I were left behind in San Francisco they didn't take to La. I you know it's hard to make a move when someone doesn't want you doesn't talk to you and then was a is. There is no reason to go to to pay my own way to go to La. When I was pretty sure they were gonNA kill the show as we knew it anyway. Yeah Yeah not just not worth it. Robert Did you do at the end of the tech. Tv I went to g four. We ENDED UP SETTING UP. A lab briefly down there but otherwise ended up working with the folks on attack of the show until they had another round of layoffs. In then at that point I took a good break and then came back to the bay area and worked for more Davis properties. Like extreme tack and magazine. And that's who you writing for when we did the first show you mentioned extreme Tech Patrick. Also reading extreme tech and awesome ended publication which lasted long. Called Extreme ipod lasted for a while until lawyers came out. You know we also replaced that with the TV when we got our hands on the first Gosh was that two thousand fourteen thousand five two thousand five I think and the two thousand five. We got our hands on the first try caster and built the studio around the try. Casper which was like you know after watching after building the tech. Tv said it was like seven million dollars studio and it's like well we just did it for like twenty grand right right That was that was like okay. This is this is what disruptive means when you replace a million dollars worth of equipment with like forty thousand dollars worth of equipment. That was pretty crazy. So you can do yeah. People are doing at home now with at eight ten mini for three hundred bucks in a couple of DSL sitting around right people think that divorce was on the original show. He wasn't in didn't show up. I think 'til episode four so he wasn't. This is who was on the original show. So it's fun to get you guys back again. David prager there for whatever reason no cal he might have been hiding. He's he's always somewhere. My wife was there. Was there well the first time. Yes all of them were there we did it at the Twenty First Amendment Brewery. Right after macworld. But that wasn't I don't consider that the first tweet because that was many months earlier And that that was like in January February after macworld expo and that was more just test. But yes Sarah was there. Prager was there for that one and I think all of you as well so yeah. It's it's kind of fun that That you guys are. What's interesting is shortly after that. Kevin you left g four and started revision. Three right. Was there for one year. Yeah so I was. I was at G. Four for one year we started. Read three and dig right around the same time. Yup Yup so. I'm the only one still standing tall. I mean you're all standing but I'm the only this is the only thing that started in two thousand five. That's still going that's saying in the PODCAST business. That's seeing a lot since most podcast. I after a week so the fact that we're still here fifteen years later. No Co there were no. There were no sponsors back then right in this. I remember when we were doing dig nation. We had a ton of viewers but then finally slowly sponsor started to come online. We'd go daddy. There wasn't a lot of money to be made. And then I look at you know. Joe Rogan who's doing double digit millions in a year and rather than an episode of impending. I count it but yet insane we when we first started. I didn't want to Do advertise I wanted to do as Patrick has done. His shows with the we didn't have Patriot in those days. But it was a tip jar that kind of thing But that did that was good for one show but it wasn't wasn't enough to pay anybody or have any help or anything else. It was just enough for one show so it took us a couple of three years but we finally said I finally said okay. We'll do advertisers and Yeah at this point. We're entirely ad-supported. Although thanks to cove in nineteen there's a little thinning out of the heard. If you know what I mean. I think that Rogan guy might make it though. I think he's probably GONNA survive. You know who's visiting real quickly pop in. This is an older feature of the Old Shows. I used to watch like the tonight show people would like Bob. Hope would pop in and he'd be across the way he did he show up. Look at this a friend from the past Scott. Harriet squash is here. Sky was never ever on the twitter. I don't know why never asked you. But that's probably because you were busy making movies. Yeah still doing that still again as I told you before we a- went on the air here of I make just enough to still live with my eighty-seven-year-old parents down in southern California. So it's but it's been it's been great it's been it's been fun able to do primarily hiking films and You know gone around the World Australia. Iceland just hiked in Ireland on a new route last year. And take about three months to hibernate. Edit them together and put them up on squash films dot com. That's awesome yeah. People may remember Scott from Internet tonight. Which was the high end. Fancy SHOW UNSEAT ATV IN TECH TV one with rightness producer. I think always back the experienced skaters though you guys were like you were the highest rated show. I think we were second but I mean you think you. Your audience brought a lot of people to our show. A lot of people because yours was yours. Yours was the show for real people normal people about. Oh look what's on the Internet. Yes yeah yeah. Which was that? That was so fun man those days well and Michaela Pereira. Who's gone on to fame and fortune? you guys were funny so it was a funny show and you were a comic so that was a that was easily the most entertaining show on the network but it turned out what people really wanted was. You know we're going to install a lennox On this box and it'll take us in our. Maybe it'll be time before. The show is over that for some reason. People like that you are able to do. Both you know both to be informative and entertaining if if I attempted anything of that Technological level I you know you could have would be hearing the TV sets turning off but you tell me. You're a geek now. Well a more of a geek. I remember it because I actually took pride at the time that I was really the the here end user host on the show everyone else knew so much more about tech than I did and my interest wasn't in it really but as the as the GIG was winding down with the Internet tonight got cancelled and then they were cool enough to keep me on for a year where I was on the show with you guys and remember Kevin Rose sitting right next to man. I remember thinking to myself. This kid's never going to be a millionaire right on the money with Kim There. So and then Yeah I I always look back on. Those times is just being cornball word but really magical really fun and what a great place to live there in the bay area and and then absorbing all that technological info and then when the GIG ended I I wanted to edit my own documentaries remember. What was his now mark veto. Remember mark the editor. Yeah he was the number one guy. He's going again and this is at that time he would go dude for like eight thousand dollars. You can get final. Cut Pro. A powerbook Mini Devi. Cameras can make your own documentaries and it looked good in a in a theater and like you know great. And that's what I did and started making. What else should on now? I actually shoot on a Canon H F G ten which is one of their cinema cameras. Yeah those are good. I just I just kind of correctly or incorrectly. Women this is a camcorder. Oh that's the same thing.

"Under the old system and this will take place in 2019 will be the first year this do you think this is enough was this a lottery reform that that you wanted or do you think maybe more should be done to discourage teams from designing teams that are intentionally battle this is where we are i voted for a tougher reform a few years back but it cut voted down which was flattened it out even more in the idea of flattening out these odds mean flicked you're either in the play offs or you got a chance to get better towards the top of the draft you know and the teams that don't make the playoffs that are legitimately trying hard but just aren't as good or their small market they haven't been able to attract free agents you know the draft is really important in early gets more important early than any other league because the bed players can take a team to a championship because they can handle the ball every twenty four seconds and they can also play defense you know the other twenty four seconds and you know the they're only five guys on the court aren't eleven on a football team or whatever it is so or nine baseball team you know an individual guy really can't affect baseball team they don't touch the ball that often basketball it star driven and you get the lebron james you know you're probably gonna win the championship and so we got to figure out who has the best chance to get the next lebron if the rubber is one uh at that level and so it's probably the worst teams but you flatten it out so that everybody out of the playoffs at no has a decent shot in it reduces the urge to be the very worst team in legitimately just be terrible on purpose and you know this is not good to sell tickets if not good for the integrity of sport it doesn't look good it's tough to say the celtics are playing someone who's doing that you know fans enjoy the game thanks for coming you know they they're not can enjoy the game as much new right so anyway that's the reason to vote for a flattening and it did get flattering letsie l works you insist paid or do you think there's any.
