35 Burst results for "Fifty Cents"
2015 WSOP Champion Andrew Barber on When the Game Clicked for Him
"The realization. You you eventually come to. Which i think put realization every poker player has is like cash is going to be better for my sanity than tournaments If i care about the swings adult and so. I started playing cash. But i had gotten into Omaha hi lo through my experience with with going to reno for mixed games and stuff and i just like fired up like a small stakes six handed omaha hi low table in just clicked. It just clicked the way that i've heard other poker players talk about specific formats where they just they. Just get it and i just seem to get it and i i went from. It was fifty cents a dollar to seventy five one fifty on stars within nine months something like that solely solely playing oma hiwa solely playing omaha. Hi lo still dabbling in like Sitting go stuff and some empty teas. But like i became obsessed with the game. I like i had a poker journal. I was always thinking about the game. I was talking to other people about it. I mean like some of my best poker friends or people that i that i kind of met around this time. We're talked omaha. hi lo with. Why do you think it clicked so much. And i'll follow up question down. The line is also why did mixed games resonate with you so much well. I don't know if everyone's experienced this. But i kinda got bored with simplicity of holdem. I mean i respect that like it is A game that can be Extremely deep And that you can run. Sim after sim episode in different spots. but i think ultimately i didn't like the lack of complexity in strategies And with mixed games you have like you know constant variation like i love playing a multi game mix. Where like the game is changing every orbit. So it's like okay. Let's shift is something new. I think maybe i get bored. Or i liked shifting gears and thinking of the different way but omaha. Hi lo is. I love split park games first of all so like if i were to rank my favorite game split games are going to be at the top of the list. I love the idea that we're like playing two games simultaneously like that's really cool to me. you know it's So there's that i think there's this Maybe a concept that came naturally to me that maybe other struggle with is kind of seeing where my hand is on a spectrum like the weaker your low hand is the sorry. I'm making the Are you relatively familiar with them. A high low. I know the rules of how became operates. Okay so there's there's these trade offs that like the worst year low hand is the better. Your hand has to be and vice versa and just seem to understand where my hand fell on that that distribution You it's not often that you have like the nuts and the high side in the nuts and the low side and especially playing shorthanded or heads up You're gonna have a trash on both ends chair. It's kind of like trying to understand. How does my trash measure up to my opponents trash in what's that might like my optimal strategy here So yeah i really. I took to that in that. I think the game was also like Poised for a Poised for evolution like it was a very people are still playing a very primitive elementary strategy. There was like a little more not pedley back back then. And i was able to take advantage of that that i think i just saw There's maybe an holdem analog. That could be made
How Much Did Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley Earn for Their Fight?
"Tyron woodley. Jake paul both took home. Two million flat for the eight round fight at rocket mortgage field house include that. Surprise me for two reasons. I just thought you know. There's a little eagle involved. Jake paul has won me over. And sometimes he shows me that he go but for him to split the purse would broadly on paper. I don't know that was impressive. Now what firmly believe in but don't know. Is that the paper views. i imagine. There's something that says well for every pay per view i sell. I get this amount but you get that amount. So maybe he gets two bucks. The other guy gets one buck or five into or fifty cents and twenty by. I don't know whatever it is. That's where i think. Jake paul makes more telling you. There's no way mcgregor even if he was getting more on february whatever allow someone else to make as much as him flat he's always want to more mcgregor and may whether they would not allow
Bitcoin's "Naive" Monetary Policy by Natasha Che
"Bitcoin fails as money because of its naive. Monetary policy many people think government printing too much is evil so a fixed money supply must be good the reality a money that cannot expand would crush the economy and put us all in poverty. Here's why and how to fix it to see this. We need to understand why monetary deflation and expanding economy do not go together. Let's simplify so it's easier to see say. We have an economy with one product. The twinkie and one currency the dollar price of one twinkie equals one dollar alice. A twinkie entrepreneur. Hires bobby to help make twinkies. Alice's company makes one twinkie a year. So the company revenue is one dollar. Bob's salary is fifty cent. An alice takes the other fifty cent what happens. When productivity goes up aka the economy grows when prices and wages are stable. Alice is always motivated to find. Better ways read new technology to make twinkies read increase productivity if the company manages to make to twinkies instead of one with the same resources alice will make a dollar and fifty cents instead of just fifty cent one dollar times to twinkies minus fifty cent wage cost of bob equals a dollar and fifty cents but if price quickly drops as productivity of twinkies doubles i e. The twinkie price deflates to fifty cent. Alice would still just make fifty cent after going through all the trouble to increase productivity the revenue doesn't increase to twinkies times. Fifty cent equals a dollar while wage cost is still fifty cent

"Our lead story today is one of demand and supply in that order. The commodity in question is semiconductors. The demand as we'll explain is nearly universal the supply well it's lagging and more so every day bloomberg got its hands on some data from the susquehanna financial group that says if you order a chip today the aforementioned semiconductors you're going to have to wait seventeen weeks for it to be delivered. Four plus months that is to put it mildly no way to run a supply chain. And as marketplace's samantha field reports. It is doing damage to way more than cars or computers or smartphones. These days almost everything has a chip whether we think of it as high tech or not. If it has a plug or battery probably has chips in it glenn. O'donnell research director at forrester says that includes refrigerators video. Doorbells and light bulbs you can turn on with your phone and even lower tech things like kids toys because all the toys gotta talk now and they got to react and they have little motors right. Now there's a shortage of all kinds of chips. Even the most basic ones says china vasan an analyst at bloomberg intelligence for. It doesn't matter if it's one hundred dollars or fifty cent part. There's just not enough capacity at factories around the world to meet the demand from all of the industries. That need chips because there's such a shortage. The semiconductor industry is having to pick and choose what to prioritize says. Mario morales at market research company. Idc it's for prioritizes. The large scale lear is like computing. Mobile phones is the largest market so though supply chains are always going to get priority and other companies especially smaller are going to have to wait longer for chips so shrine of austin at bloomberg says if you need something like a new appliance anytime soon even if you don't care about it being smart all of those products will be in. Short supplies are investigating line and shrim- boston says the shortage is likely to get worse before it gets better

"Can you grow roses on the east side of the house and most definitely yes and explaining that by the same six. Our business I'm going to go to some old well. I may be told before some junk roses. The pots were broken. The plants were at best gimpy I bought him. This is a while back. I bought them for fifty cents. A piece. I worked up the soil in the apartment.

The area really really amended the soil gutted in excellent shape planet six roses. Those scraggly half live plants ended up my shoulder to head height by fall absolutely magnificent because i well first of all i got him into good rooting situation then from there. They were getting full. Six hours of sun in the morning dawn until noon or so And and just flourished because they could make the food in the morning then. They were in a cooler less lighted area. So they could actually. Let's just say reserve some of the food they made and it made a better better better to the point.

The Roblox Debut
"Is out the door. Robots closed its first day of trading as a public company at sixty nine dollars. Fifty cents valuing the company at thirty eight point two six billion dollars quoting cnbc. Shares began trading at sixty four dollars. Fifty cents which represented a forty three percent increase from a private financing round just in january when the company sold shares for forty five dollars the reference price on tuesday of forty five dollars though no stock changed hands at those levels. The reference price tends to reflect private market trading and does not indicate where a stock will open road blocks hits the market coming off an explosive year of growth primarily from kids who were stuck at home because covid nineteen forced schools to close and sports leagues to shutdown within roadblocks which is one of the top grossing apps on apple and google devices users create. Avatars that they can move between the millions of games on the service navigating theme parks adopting virtual pets and fighting enemies with their friends. Revenue last year jumped eighty two percent to nine hundred and twenty three point. Nine million dollars still relaxes. Net loss widened to two hundred and fifty three point. Three million dollars from seventy one million dollars in two thousand nineteen as the company almost triple. The amount of money paid to develop through its revenue sharing program more than twelve hundred and fifty developers made at least ten thousand dollars last year through virtual sales in their roadblocks games and quote. Now i've said before that in the universe of unicorns among the companies investors. I'm friendly with our most. Enthused about roadblock has been at the top of that list the yardstick i'm using here to measure the level of investor. Excitement is basically when i hear investors. Say something like damn it. I wish i had gotten in early on that company. Roadblocks has been the name most mentioned in that context for about a year. Now the other one by the way is stripe which people have foam mode on forever but over the last year the frenzy around fintech has reached a fever. pitch so stripe has become the company. Everyone's still wishes they were in on early or still wants to get in on now if they can anyway back to roadblocks. You don't have to take my word for it in terms of people's excitement around this company. Here's ben thompson describing how by bringing disparate parts of gaming into one place. Roadblocks is basically created the conditions for interlocking feedback loops. That are very exciting. Quote by controlling. Everything roadblocks can bring all of the disparate parts of gaming into one place instead of one app for social interactions another app for purchases and a different app for every different game. Everything is all in the same place. This also makes roadblocks easier to develop for by constraining graphics to a consistent toolbox. It's very easy to build something new. This creates the conditions for the interlocking feedback loops that characterize transformational products by reducing the prominence and feature set of games. Roadblocks made it possible to create something. Bigger a micro verse. This actually fits the pattern of other transformational products. The feed for instance relies on reducing all types of content from post to photos to links to the same format such that they can all be incorporated into a greater whole. It's a reason why. I think that clubhouse being all audio actually gives it an advantage relative to twitter. That leaves more room for user entrepreneurship. Both in the kinds of rooms created and also norms around behavior twitter realize the same benefits relative to blogs with its one hundred forty character constraint. Similarly roadblocks games aren't really competitive with non roadblocks games. They're worse in any sort of traditional sense because the things that make them better are the parts that are enabled by imposing constraints and quote.
A new way to invest that doesn't involve buying stocks hyped on Reddit
"So lately. All the buzz his been about well. Bitcoin and other crypto currencies. Bitcoin recently fifty thousand dollars a bitcoin and people who've been buying the stocks that are being touted on read it and it was all that mess that went on with Game stop and other stocks. That went up like rockets and then like rockets can do crash back down to earth and my son is in this investing group at school. He's fifteen and they're investing not real money but they all have their stock portfolios and wanna read you to texts from him from this morning. They're really funny. Is said in the last nineteen minutes. My stock portfolio dropped by six sixty. Then he texts me eight minutes later and these eh. then it went up by eight hundred dollars. And i the other night. When he was trapped. In the car with me i started boring. I'm trying to talk about how my philosophies investing work very differently than matt worrying about day trading and options and all. That was going to happen up to the minute and if you thought a father could be more irrelevant to sun then i was that minute you you couldn't be no interest in anything i was saying because to him. This is sport and that's what investing has been of late call. Investing is really speculating. And that's not my thing. I mean i'm the dulles person alive and i invest in a dull way because the ideas i wanna make money over time and so. That's why i get excited about really accessible. Investing opportunities for small investors did allow you to build reasonable wealth over time instead of trying to get the quick score and my son's a sharp kid hill. Eventually get it and will not that. It matters what you're buying and selling minute by minute. And by the way he's asked me if he can have a real investing account. Will you know you'd have to have what's called a custodial said yeah yeah where where you were the pretend owner but i'm the one doing the investing and i don't know what to do you know. Give them a couple of hundred dollars and let him play. And maybe learn the value of term investing. But you know it fifteen. What is long term. That's like three days from now. It's hard to explain a concept where you build wealth over time well do you know goldman sachs is goldman sachs is for rich people like crista. People was massive amounts of money. Who work with a personal financial manager. Who handles their money for them. That's right krista. That's what you do with your millions. Yeah no no okay. So there are. There are very wealthy people. That's what they do and goldman sachs has been doing some stuff lately that doesn't fit at all their historical pedigree They're the ones that issue the apple card for people that have the apple credit card and they have Savings accounts and all that kind of thing with no minimums will now. They've launched some cold. Marcus invest which allows people to use goldman sachs incredible financial analysis investment analysis till build robo investing portfolios for you using very low cost funds. And this is something you would ask somebody. Ten years ago if goldman sachs would ever being looking to provide investments an investment advice to everyday ordinary. People they'd say you're crazy. That will never happen. Well they're not doing what fidelity investments does where a dollar is enough to open an account many cases schwab one hundred dollars. They're doing what vanguard. Does you have to have a thousand bucks to open an account but once you have that thousand you can get advice that is tailored to your personal financial goals and outlook. The money can be and a retirement account or an investment account use what are known is exchange traded funds. Etf's and typically for the advice and the investments you pay roughly a third of a percent per year for them to handle your money. So i guess ten thousand dollars be thirty five bucks a year. Is that right. I think that's about right. three dollars. Fifty cents on a thousand. I think that's right so this is an opportunity for you to do. Investing through the nation's big boys big money houses and their whole business plan is pretty similar to what you'd have if you were with Betterment or wealth front that really started this whole investing idea. And i'm sure neither of them are very happy the goldman sachs through. Marcus invest is playing in their ballpark.
Is Silver the Next GameStop?
"Yesterday. Silver prices hit the highest level in eight years to over twenty nine dollars and fifty cents per ounce the london bullion market association which is the silver market said that more than a billion ounces of silver was traded. Yesterday it's three times greater than the average from the end of two thousand twenty can louis c. of app max which is a dealer in precious metals coins boy in bars said yesterday on bloomberg tv that they had more volume in silver sales in the past three days than they had all of december and forty three percent of those orders from new customers were. Typically it's only fourteen to twenty percent of orders in a given day are from new customers. Adrian ash is director of research at bullion vault which also sells silver. Bullion said they had more customers yesterday than all of last february. Why is there this sudden interest in silver last week. We discussed wall street bets. The sub reddit and what was driving the price of game. Stop and other memes stocks. There were some post last week on wall street bets about silver being the biggest short in the world but there's post on all different types of topics but some of those posts because they're voted on in this forum made it to the top and then news organizations pick it up that that the wall street bet sub read. It was now focus on silver but then some on wall street No they're not promoting silver that there are proponents of silver taking advantage of the forum. So there was a lot of confusion over. Who's driving this increase in silver. But clearly it's happening. One commodities trader said about wall street bets that i'm beginning to think that they are being suckered by the silver scammers to try to get the price up today when i looked at wall street bets. There wasn't any of the top articles on silver. They appear to be a couple about diamonds but most was on gm's stock which fell over fifty percent this week here. We are with silver having spiked to its highest level in eight years. Today it's down to twenty seven dollars per ounce but the sudden interest news gives us an opportunity to look at silver the investment case for silver. And should we buy silver now. There are two primary ways to buy silver by it physical including coins or bars. We can also by silver through an exchange traded fund like the shares silver trust which owns physical silver or we can participate in these silver futures market. And we'll talk about how that works. A lot of these news articles reference. Some of the post on wall street bets about how silver is the biggest short in the world. And there'll be a squeeze and we're going to stick it to the banks that are short but still i really different than the short squeeze on game stop or some other stock like i talked about last week where you had hedge funds that were massively short game stop. There were more shorts than shares outstanding. And when the stock started to rise those hedge funds needed to buy back game stop stock so that they could close out their short position and stop losing money but if we look at the positioning of hedge funds and other speculators in the silver futures market. They're actually net long in other words positioned for silver to go up in price and they have been net long since two thousand nineteen. The natural times reported that analyst said bullion banks has hsbc and j. p. morgan did not have speculative naked short positions in silver. In if anything would make money by selling silver to exchange traded funds in helping minors hedge exposure bernard data an analyst texas that it's the wrong understanding of the market. It's trying to apply the same. Rationale is game stop but most of the market is long silver. The banks are going to make more profit and the silver buyers are indirectly sending their own money to them
Reddit's GameStop stock surge has Wall Street running scared
"So for those listeners. Who have not been following this straw closely. It just gives us a quick run through exactly is going on with gabe. Stop stock wise surging. I have to save for for once. I am so happy. And so thankful that i got such a good financial education from reuters and the wall street journal because oh my god essentially what is going on is that there were a bunch of people who are investors on wall street. Who bet hard against game stops future. They had actually bet so much that they had overplayed their hand. And what's really interesting. Is that a bunch of people on the internet on. Reddit realized this bad bet was going on and thought. Oh well wait a minute. We get the price to go up. Just enough wall street will have to recalibrate its bets. And that's essentially what's happened. It's called a short squeeze and The result has been unbelievable. These prices going from last year in august. It was around three dollars and fifty cents a share all the way up to four some four. Sixty four ninety. It's unbelievable and of course now it's very volatile right because it's it's up in that it's down and we're talking about like losing half doubling losing like. It's absolutely ridiculous. But i think what's really interesting about. It is this huge battle between institutional investors are at these people who are on wall street in are are kind of not only that but also seen as the smart money in the room completely against these people on the internet who are often seen as as kind of the the idiots right the people who don't know what they're doing and just you know they make money on the wall street. They're they're just lucky. It's really fascinating to
The Cut Throat War To Dominate China's Grocery Delivery Industry
"Speaking of china. You had a great story on. I didn't i mean who knew this. This is why. I love rest of world because we're learning about stuff that the cutthroat war dominate china's grocery delivery industry is there a grocery delivery industry in china. I'm kind of. I don't know why i'm surprised to hear that. Yes so follow me for a second. This is a really crazy model. That like a hundred million people plus china right now. So it's really big and it's really really and it's attracting sort of like grandma's almost like aunties You know people are really price conscious so imagine you have a group chat and all of your neighbors or that group chat and you have sort of like you know maybe a local state home mom or someone you know. Maybe the corner store owner Someone who owns a seven eleven and they are the moderator of that group chat every single day they give you some grazie deals for fresh food and all you do is in that group chat. Say what you and the next day the stay at home. Mom we'll get it all delivered to her place and then she'll bring it to you or you go pick it up at the corner store. So they're called group buying groups so she gets everything and then parcells it out to her neighbors the like uber or d. Which is the over of china is invested in this every ten cent. Jd dot com alibaba. All the biggest tech companies are investing in this all over the place. It's a huge frenzy. Just sort of like get all these people because cheer point. These are people who didn't usually virus online. They were just go to the corner store and get stuff previously but what this is doing is leading all those big tech companies. Cut a ton of costs. They get marketing from the stay at home mom. They get logistics. they don't have to go to each person's home right the stay at home. Mom will take care of that for them. So the money to right she gets she gets about five ten percent commission so she's incentivized to get as many people as possible most of these people. Have you know anywhere from a couple hundred to nine hundred. She's all that are managing. It's huge or that and it can be can be a big source of business for them and it's a crazy trend in china and it's become really really wild actually two employees at one of the companies that his invested in this actually died Recently which sort of set off this huge reckoning about like you know are they pushing employees too hard at these companies you know is this frenzy worth it. The government is mad about it. But i love it because it's like stay at home. Mom selling vegetables by everyone in tech is just all over themselves over it. Well as you out It's a in. The article is highly customized. Because this one person who is managing this group note gets to know everybody their interests their tastes what they want what they don't like so it works. It works really well. I have to say come on. If you're like cute little neighbor texas everyday and it was like sale on. Carrots are totally doing. Yeah fifty cents. Bundled carrots come grabbed them tomorrow with your eggs and your milk or whatever. Of course i would do it. This model could work in the rest of the world. I think that. Like when i think about someone like my mom who's like knocking to navigate. Instacart knows how to use. I message the thing is that it's integrated into chat right and we don't really have each year in the same ways. I think we're sort of far off. But i do think you know this super-charged by the pandemic there are way more people anger. She's online than there used to be. And i think that instacart is ripe for disruption. I think like you know whole foods. Delivery is not doing anything particularly Innovative and i think even amazon and these logistics giants are still really struggling with how to make a profit off of this and these chinese companies sort of figured out a way to do it although to be fair. They're offering really really low prices because he's really price conscious consumers and suppliers or getting mad. Because they're like selling a bottle of cooking oil for like less than the actual cost to make it so there are a lot of sort of reminds me of when it was like two dollars. Take an uber anywhere. Because they were just pouring money on it and get a fifty percent off lift ride. If you just open the super happen the lift up notice that you were doing that. We all remember. That's it feels like that. Yeah so i do worry it. Sort of gimmicky.
Is there a payment processor for very small transactions?
"Hey chris this is kelly from chicago. I've been listening to the show for a couple of years. Now and still love the funds. I want to sell virtual items for gamers including some that costs less than a dollar. My concern is that most merchant accounts including pay pal and stripe charge a per transaction fee in addition to a percentage. I understand them taking a three to four percent cuts. But if you're selling an item for fifty cents and there's a twenty five cent transaction fee. That's half the cost of the item. Is there a payment processor can work with to solve this problem. Or perhaps some way to use crypto currency and have no charges at all says it strictly peer to peer. What do you think kelly. Thank you so much for the question. So i i was a little bit stumped. I'm going to give you some perspective as well as a direct answer so the good news is a papal does have a microtransactions option now. I don't know that. I was even aware of that before i did some research. Take a look again. They call it micro payments so just searched for pal micro payments and the way it works as you'll pay a higher percentage but a lower flat fee essentially so you won't be paying the twenty five cents on each transaction and i think you'll pay something like five to seven cents and then the percentage maybe five to seven percent as opposed to two to four percent. Okay so it's just a different business model. That can actually work pretty well. For microtransactions or micro payments now. That said telly. Also mentioned crypto currency. I do think blockchain of some kind and future on this is one of the problems that blockchain promises to solve because transaction costs are so high. Most banks don't wanna do microtransactions because they're not making any money off them and because there are so many middlemen at these systems but still this is getting a little bit complicated because you know these days at least it's still pretty hard to use cryptocurrency for most routine transactions so as for the virtual items themselves. We talked about this in another episode as well. Most of that stuff is centralized by companies like epic games the makers of fortnight's and other games and the aftermarket is minimal or nonexistent if they don't actually want people making virtual items for sale they want to control that process themselves. Now there's probably some opportunity that i don't know about so in case i just said something that's inaccurate or is inaccurate and the future. Here's the greater point. You know what i hope to teach through. This show isn't so much like here's the latest. And greatest thing. Here's how you can go and sell virtual items and here's how you can get your percentage fee to be lower. Michael here is to make episodes and tell stories that are evergreen and helpful for a long time So much greater skill you can acquire all this stuff here is where do opportunities come from. Like where do. I find the opportunities in the first place because they will change from time to time month-to-month season by season year by and such. But where did the opportunities come from. How can i learn to spot them. And how can i take action. Once i spot one. So i think if you listen to this show for a while like you'll see that narrative that i'm trying to build up sometimes more successful than others. I'm sure but i'm trying to communicate that the greater skill is learning to spot the opportunity taking action on the opportunity. Not just like here. Are the top three things you can do at this particular month. So just some general comments there. Make sure you're not missing the forest for the trees. It really is hard to make money to make a good profit when you're items for so low of a cost so you should always ask like. Is this the best opportunity for me. My thirty something else.

What is "Unbanked"? CEO and Founder of Electroneum, Richard Ells
"You often described Trillion as a microbe aiming service. But i think it's a lot of other things as well. And i know one of the things that make you you. All unique is your focus on you know helping freelance for the gig. Economy third world countries right. 'cause you're actually helping them get paid in the etienne currency. So can you talk a little bit about. Have you seen any upticks in usage related to geography free during this time. I'm sure there's obviously many people looking for work and many people even Switching industries right. They just they just kinda want to survive in the best roy. Difficult cool about same. Things changed because because all dates are being pretty wild. We only launched pools during covid pretty much. Most of the february twenty twenty where mesa madness was going on and it has been a bit of a welwyn to win all suggest before cameras coors nineteen thousand and fifty talks. Fifteen thousand tubs on the platform fall off of more than than i thought we would be. They sites in all in a life cycle. And it's it's a really amazing thing to say that word of mouth which is which is now joining the whole ecosystem is it's been an actual rate thing so identity have data specifically A change i would imagine the likes of five hundred People who've been around for a long time next release deductible on Extrapolate specifically about cogan unfortun- got it's understandable because yeah sometimes in crypto. You don't have that direct data but why do you think you've seen such large growth in just the the community and like you mentioned. There's a lot of other alternative freelancing opportunities and focusing on this one thing. Because i read a lot about how people in the in the third world like you said word of mouth. They're all kind of talking to each other and accepting this currency as their new as their new valid currency. I think for a lot of people in the us It's sometimes hard to understand that perspective because a lot of our money and foundation is stays the same in its stable but when you talk about third world countries these people in many in many ways their skilled but they can't even get a paid inefficient raids right. So what do you think makes you all unique in that sense to to cater to this new generation. Maybe talk a little bit about that. This what is the effects of this new generation. When they start them they start to earn and work at Earning crypto per se rather than traditional Like what effect is half so first of all.

You could make a two cent four cent transaction in a gun which is all twenty cent transactional fifty cent. Transaction solid transaction sizes. You couldn't possibly do on the on. The vase of mouse to coordinate Really very efficiently because most of the payment providers should providers charge of minimum of twenty or thirty cents per transaction so micro payments all really not that sixty two to traditional finance and then we shall ending slightly more helping to the twenty thousand dollar range which still to to the global twenty of thirty dollars.

Maybe we have more memorable characters like his leg in forni gumbo. We'll get there but yes. Thank you everybody for listening. We have a special show for us because we have a special guest show We've listened to some of the music in the past. I know i have mentioned the album's in the past. So on the label game chops we have The the producer the musician of the album. Zelda and chill and most recently zelda and chill part two which is a lo fi. Sell the series. We have michael all the way from germany. Joining us on the show. Michael thank you for joining us for big show So yeah i love. How and for me. It's a fairly recent thing of seeing not just a lo fi hip hop or hip hop instrumentals becoming so popular on the internet and worldwide. But seeing a lot of a video game arrangements insi- within hip hop within the lo fi. Can you tell me a little bit about how you got interested in hip hop and then how that intersected with with zelda yeah. I got interested with hip Pretty early when there was five or six. I rap songs and thought i always loved the beats and stuff but when it was i think whether it was fourteen was when i started making own beads. I've always liked sorry. The i've always liked zelda games and games in general and soundtracks and think about two thousand and eight. When i started making music i made my first remixes but i didn't release them and I think two thousand seventeen when notify was a bit bigger. That was when i did it again. 'cause these were finally hippies got really fit to yoga music yes i feel i feel that and i'm not sure if this is the same for a lot of people that i feel like my musical tastes have suddenly become mainstreamed more popular so the instrumental music that i really enjoy suddenly. There's there's an audience audience for it. And say i can also say that people like me who weren't generally into that style of music when you cross sect it west v. Gm which. I am a fan of It has a way of getting you in the door to appreciate what you were missing out on before the now definitely before we get into some original game music some music that we really enjoy. I'm curious about some of your musical influences. You said you you listen to a lot of got interested in rap music at a younger age while we're some of the the early artists and songs that really got you interested. Well i think the biggest inspiration was abducted raped western east coast hip hop in the nineties. Yes and then. The eminem fifty cents and a lot of german rep. Oh yeah. I'm not familiar with a lot of german rap. Artists is are there any names that maybe we could take note of and explore Seo the is He also reps on these Boom bap beats yes. Yeah and kinetic also from my hometown. They think mostly inspired by now. We have a friend of our show who lives in the uk in britain and he also has a podcast of music. And do you know of the wu tang clan playstation game. So there's a fighting game but all of the characters are members of the wu tang clan and they did it and they wrote a soundtrack to the game. You might be interested. It's it's very instrumental. But there's a few there's a few vocal tracks cetera. Okay sounds cool. Hundred very quick the only game villain. No of his Def jam york. That's with a lot of weapons and stuff up when the kids out there. It's always so it kind of makes sense that they would fight each other. But at the same time i always imagined. The wu tang clan working together. You know is the main story mode is exactly that like pointing games. Do it where they'll start out with a they're just fighting because they're trying to figure out what's going on here eventually. Learn that the band is making them. Fight was something with thirty six yards. They had to fight their way through so elena. We chose specifically zelda music for today and sort of to celebrate yourself in chill albums and we ask for you to bring some music that maybe you really enjoyed or were inspired by.
Riot Games: Brandon Beck and Marc Merrill
"Guy roz on the show. Today to avid gamers fended off reluctant. Investors may saying experts and their own self doubt to build riot games an order the most successful video games ever created league of legends in two thousand six. A video game company called bethesda. software works. Tried out an experiment at the time. But as the had a popular video game called oblivion in that year it decided to offer its users an extra feature horse armor not armor virtual armor that you could use in the game and bethesda offered it up for two dollars fifty cents. It was an incredibly controversial decision and most players reacted badly. They didn't like it but enough gamers decided to try it out and bought the armor and it proved a theory that company had that you could create an entire revenue stream through what became known as microtransactions. Still almost no game developers chose to pursue this business bottle that same year. Two friends brandon beck and mark merrill pitched an idea to investors. They wanted to build free video games but offer up things like in game currency and weapons and characters and skill points. I price brandon and mark believed that if the game was good enough players would happily spend a few dollars each week to buy virtual products that might enhance the gaming experience not surprisingly most investors. Turn them down and thought it was a crazy idea. The question mark and brandon getting was. Who's gonna spend money on virtual things things that have no value in the real world and these were fair questions. And it's why it was so hard from arkan brandon to get right games up and running but the game they eventually built league of legends became one of the most popular video games of all time and a game that helped to pioneer the business model now known as the free to play model this year the global video game industry will hit more than a hundred and sixty billion dollars in revenue. That makes it four times bigger than the global film and tv industry and three times bigger than all the music sold around the world and twenty twenty. according to forbes video games will earn more than three hundred billion dollars by twenty twenty five and a growing percentage of that revenue comes from gamers who spend small amounts of money buying skins or costumes for their virtual characters or buying access to locked rooms and imaginary worlds huge gaming tournaments attract millions of viewers with players. Earning millions of dollars a year. It's a massive business and a big part of it has to do with the model that brandon marks company riot games helped. Pioneer and brandon both grew up in southern california. They met as teenagers at a summer leadership camp shortly before college. Here's how marc remembers it. I remember meeting brandon and mike. Oh you're from los angeles awesome it like video games. What's up in so we just kinda instantly hit it off. And then as i got to know him i also just really thought he had a infectious personality at that. It really interesting. Way of looking at the world that was sort of commentary from values perspective to mind in the edge just this incredibly entrepreneurial kind of business oriented mind. That kind of inspired me where i'm like. Wow i've never seen i've never encountered a person that's also younger me that felt so vibrant and dynamic and it's interesting way and so because of the shared love of games so they could hop on the modem play starcraft warcraft two or or duke nukem three d or if i mean we could go on and on about the titles that we all knew and connected about. Yeah so you meet this like leadership program and then you both go back to l. a. And and you you stay in touch or or did you kind of lose touch. Yeah i mean we. We stayed in touch and we call each other every once in a while we. We'd play some games. I remember one of those phone calls. Mark told me a really to see the matrix. What does that. he's like. You'll see ended up blowing my mind. My favorite movie of all time and mark. You headed to usc to start college and brandon did that. I know eventually you would also go to. Usc was was the fact that mark was there to that. Influence your decision to go. There was just just happened to be the place where you decide to go. It was a total coincidence. But it certainly made me more excited about it. I even visited mark when he was at school and hung out within the dorms. Where he he had a bunch of gaming buddies and they would they play games together. And i wasn't a very good student i had. Adhd in a variety of learning differences in wasn't pretty tough competitive school environment. And and i. And i just. I was not the kind of student i was sort of supposed to be. But in the meantime i'm living in this world online. I wanted to spend every minute in my spare time. I would build scripts that would play my character for me wall. I had to be a school. So i would continue to make progress. Well that's pretty impressive. But i mean you did despite your struggles you did end up getting into usc and mark is already there and presumably like you guys. What like start to hang out. And i guess you already have like a friend at college and you get there. Yeah mark would take me under his wing bit and you know introduced me to his friends and show me around. So yeah it was. It was really great showing up and no one mark mark when you guys were in college did. Did you think you know what. I'm gonna start a business with this guy one day or was it just like fun. Conversations would have about. Hey you know maybe one day we should do this or that. Yeah no we we did. But it was sort of accidental. In some ways you know brandon. And i because of our shared passion games and then also our mutual interest in business we would strategize brainstorm or think about opportunities and and this is one of the reasons that i was attracted to brands because he was sort of the most entrepreneurial business minded friend that i had like brandon random music station at sc. You'd be thinking about events or got so we were playing games and we both loved online games and so we loved to like watch replays of really competitive players playing online and try to help inform how we could get better than that started us thinking about well. Maybe we could help. Create or run some gaming tournaments. Maybe we could do some stuff like that surround campus and actually. Maybe there's a opportunity create a league that we were going to call the g. l. ultimate gaming league so brandon. I went down to the basement. Alevi library late one night. We started working on this rough business plan. Neither of us really knew how to build a business plans. We're trying to figure out what that looked. Like what the but on paper and all this and we can never really went anywhere that business but nonetheless I just remember being really energized about the possibilities of the future and and again. That's that's something that an grant and really helped awaken. Was this ability to look at not the way the world is currently but the way that it could be and how we could potentially go help change

"And fifty cents the cost of a brand new car for a run of the mill throat swab she thought she had a cold she went into the the doctor and they swap your throat to check to see what was going on and for that she ended up having to pay twenty eight thousand three hundred ninety five dollars and fifty cents she said I thought it was a mistake fortunately her insurance company what's even phase right see that's the problem with the stuff with our healthcare system is that the medical the insurance companies are even phased by this nonsense twenty eight thousand dollars to literally put a Q. tip on the back of someone's throat yeah yeah so that's that's the rate for that that's what the going rate for that right now I would have much what would it cost honestly and truthfully I'm not in favor allowing patients to necessarily do medical procedures on themselves that seems like a flawed plan from every possible angle blocked I wonder how much it would cost if they would have handed her the slob and had stick that never throw and then hand it back to the I wonder how much that would a calcular tests and other things as well these tests don't cost that much money you know there there's a doctor situate but my wife just had so you surgery on her shoulder okay so having to deal with that she had does shoulder surgery and they have to go in and they have to clear stuff out and make little incisions and put cameras in and wash their hands you know like it on TV like surgeons and whatnot and they have to cut all their goal of the loose hanging crap out of her shoulder it was really gross they made me sit there and watch the video I don't do well in nam medical situations it this is how pathetic I am when I have to have blood drawn that's not giving blood that's having blood drawn I tightened it what's the whole process including walking back to where they draw the blood and then walking out the door took less than three minutes when I had that done they I have taken Xanax I I'm terrified of needles so I have to drug myself to dislike just to get that going out but so they're making me watch this whole procedure and there's a doctor shaving away parts of quite shoulder merry Christmas to you the and had to watch that but so I understand that things like that would cost a little bit of money I I get that there is a fee Friday I know doctor spent a lot of money to go to medical school so the knowledge they have in order to heal people is pretty intense out when it comes to doing a test of throat swab I can't do it but I'm willing to bet it's one of those things where if I walked in and put on my little trainee hatch week we could probably work that out in a relatively short period of time we can probably figure out exactly what needs to be tested on tested with what the tests being in the in a relatively short period of time we only know Harvard de PhD do that kind of stuff I'm willing to bet so twenty eight grand for that is seems a little excessive this is why yeah might might lay eggs to my wife at the shoulder thing I mean look at the bell I knew it was covered by insurance name one a look at it to see and my wife is my father in law is a doctor and you don't get everything for free by the way it's an advantage is that you pay for everything still you'd like you can get in if there's if they tell you there's no appointment and your father in law or your dad is a doctor you can get it trust me there they find a way but to my mother in law's a nurse a retired nurse at this point so now I understand that there's some knowledge going on there but that being the case every time there's something wrong and we can't figure it out because we're not doctors we end up at the urging terror at the doctor's office or what have you to have that done site just make it a point in my life not to look at the medical bill because I would get scared and I would go hide if I did that I hope will be hoping that the evil bad bill collectors were coming to get get you know like I said the insurance company wasn't fazed by this at all Blue Cross and blue shield of Minnesota unquestioningly sent over a check for twenty five thousand eight hundred sixty five dollars and twenty four cents in order to cover the treatment so again we're talking about a throat swab here the entire appointment if you take out the wait time and there's always wait time but if you take out the wait time in the entire report for appointment probably took less than fifteen minutes now if you're keeping score a home the insurance company paid twenty five thousand eight hundred sixty five dollars and twenty four cents that left this woman with a doctor bill of two thousand five hundred and thirty dollars and twenty six cents for the aforementioned throat swab which still seems excessive I will play ignorance here I don't know what a throat swab would go for all right I don't know what the going rate is I don't even know what it is on the street but if you did a throat swab two thousand five hundred and thirty dollars and twenty six cents itself seems a little excessive for that sort of thing seems to me that they could tell if you have a cold they could do the test on the throat culture you know they do that stuff relatively quickly I think it's like what cops do for a drug test on the street I'm not even exaggerating it's a little bit like that you you know you take the slob you put it in something you shake it around if it changes color or looks a little weird through a microscope something along those lines either way I don't think this is a multi thousand dollar situation that we have to deal with her but this is what's best up with our medical care system we don't need the government to come in and take over for us we don't need the that nonsense that is obamacare we need to be start being a little bit more realistic about what we're charging money for open heart surgery okay I get it that's going to cost you a little bit of cash I got that one I could wrap my mind around slicing open my chest and dealing with the of the you know one of the actual organs that keeps me alive I can I can wrap my mind around you know tens of thousands of dollars for something along those lines because I want someone to be good at what they're doing shop a Q. tip down my throat I don't know I really think somebody from a tech school could probably handle that I really don't think we need you know highly trained trained individuals I don't think we really need highly trained individuals or things like that so that's one of the problems that gets that go on but again this woman still had to pay two thousand five hundred thirty dollars and twenty six cents for a throat swab and now she's gone back and forth with her and **** without the insurance company with because the insurance company paid what they're gonna pay the insurance company looked at that and said twenty five grand for us what throat swab chirped at lower that's what that's going for right now she's still what bickering with the healthcare provider to determine whether or not twenty five hundred dollars is enough to pay for that nonsense and in my mind my little radio talk show host mind there are no skills that are involved with being a radio talk show host it pretty much goes along the lines of do you see that microphone talk into the microphone don't talk away from the microphone no one will be able to hear you talk into the microphone so this isn't a highly skilled position is my point but even someone like me with the limited skill set that I have can still look at a throat swab and say that's probably not a twenty eight thousand dollar procedure maybe that's where we need to start looking eyes towards fixing.

We'll tell I me what they're going suspect to do that if they went to to the pay do, what wall, he what what she has to be ten more evil bucks and Trump. a month Well, on what do many they have of to them do much with the vice higher president? for the Wall Street I Journal, mean, imagine that but he runs ten the president bucks wins a second per month term, on many and of them. But the problem that is, the vice is President that Mike if Pence you wanna get four runs or five in twenty of them, twenty four and he you're he up to wins. fifty bucks a month for newspapers. Well, they're already on that If you want in post mayor and Pete the New York, you don't had to think come about out it and until create you go a fake back and war think that in twenty the media years ago, helped him do that.

Yeah. Right Yeah. for Yeah. your local We, newspaper. you know. Yeah Bush was Hitler and, and Romney That's a was lot Hitler more than ten and, bucks a month. and So you can look at the business model McCain and say, was well, Hitler yeah. when he ran, I think if but they did you know, access per story, we, they we might really actually didn't mean make it more but money, Trump and people really might is. pay per story. It's like and that's where they're There's gonna a go huge again story that that comes the next down, person pay a buck that fifty for this, it doesn't boom. end with Trump. Instead Okay. of the commitment We're done. of paying Right ten now. The bucks Republican for the pay is wall okay every month. right I now. here's The demonization a question. I asked will continue is way that a after better business Trump model is gone on because every if single I Republican, see a great story, and I don't know not how you a huge up breaking the hype story. But of just a great evil. story that I'm interested in I'd pay twenty That five cents for they have pay fifty cents for. Right. transferred to Trump. I wouldn't it and Because I it wonder it's gone if beyond Hitler. the Alicarte It's gone to the for devil. stories It's gone, but they're willing in to a news make up in a, a a huge newspaper narrative put that on has all gone the stories on for and then say, more you than can get the entire what day for a buck. we'll be entering to ours. If you think about it. Think about this, where because that narrative, I began there in the halls at the FBI, they were, they were conjuring up this plan in the summer of twenty sixteen maybe even before that we're heading into three years of this kind of behavior, if they're willing to do that, and take it to the level that they did over the last eighteen to twenty four months in the media. They're willing to make anything up. Anything at all? So that's what they'll do continue to do the same. Then at some point, they'll look back and wonder why. People turned away as many clicks as you get, how many is it? That would have been there before that, aren't there. Because once Trump has gone, there's not going to be, I'm sorry. Pence isn't going to be the, the excitement. I don't care who it is actually, I don't know anybody that's going to live up to that kind of excitement and MB tweeting stuff everyday like the current president. So regardless of who it is democrat or otherwise. What do you do from a personal standpoint? Yes, I will have to retire when Trump is done because it won't be any, there won't be anything to talk about it anymore. What are you going? What how is the left going to take on someone who's not tweeting every day? Who's not saying anything who may go a few days without saying something of note. And I think it's important that you say that because you and I remember that President Obama in his first year, he kept doing press conferences, and you and I said in need to stop doing press conferences. You stink that his numbers were going down. Right. His numbers were going down. And we said you need to take like nine to ten month break. We couldn't believe it took like nine to ten month break today, and he did not do a press conference. He nothing came that couldn't happen today. No, no. People are gonna wonder why, why is he disappeared? Everything. The president didn't remember because you went, I remember getting to September and October of that year stating can you believe that the president and it was probably March or April of two thousand ten stops? And it was just like how long is this, or excuse me of two thousand nine said how long is this going to go on? And then he started coming out more. He started doing press conference, again, because ObamaCare was eating up in, in the fall of two thousand nine when you and I were amazed how long he stayed out of the public view, you know, public appearances. Yes. How you doing? What's going on the, you know, the coverage of him going to the helicopter but for press conferences, there wasn't anything, so right now the two guys that lead in the polls right now up against Hitler, Trump are Biden, and Bernie, what if what if biting becomes president, you talk about a yawn fest. Seriously? It's going to be a yawn fest. Now. In. I mean in the mainstream media, right for for us. Of course, we're going to be at every day, like we are it doesn't matter who the president is. But it will be very, very different for them. And I wonder if that five years we'll even go that I can just see one of the headlines he's an aging president, but he brings grace to the White House. Right. You can only say that a few times, the honeymoon will end very quickly on that. Eight six six ninety redeye giving.
