Bit Clinton a few other kryptos and it seems to be tied into China and also gold. We'll get to that in the moment, but, yeah, Big Queen lost 15% in a short period of time less than eight hours from set late Saturday night early Sunday morning. The other Cryptocurrency, the second largest eat your ECM lost 18% so more than Bitcoin. There seems to be like three reasons why this is happening, Kevin. The number one reason for the plunge is what a lot of people have been talking about. Analysts. The economists are saying the crypt of currency market just Huge with frostiness and well, overvalued. I mean, there's a coin last week on and I'm not endorsing any certain around a Cryptocurrency but do going it's sort 400% in a week, so that's just huge. The second reason is ah. It's unverifiable report, though, was put out on Twitter that claimed that the U. S. Treasury was looking into charging several financial institution. For using crypto currencies and also from money laundering. There is a movement by the iris just to let everybody know called Operation Hidden Treasure, which coincides with this. Ah, unclaimed report on verified So that is a real thing that the iris is coming down on people laundering money and not paying taxes on Cryptocurrency. And the third reason why this just might be is run the aftermath. All we talked about last week Queen Base when public on the NASDAQ and it ran up, and now it's just this is kind of like the hangover. That's happening s o, But there's people out there saying, you know, Bitcoin is is going to be with us to stay, and it's also competing against the US dollar. Well, and

Allen great well i have been kind of an observer of fed ramp and i know there's a connection which we're going to get to but we always start with. How did you get to where you are. We're fascinated in this program with careers and some people's a straight line. I wanted to be this. Got there others like me and others. We've interviewed it's like the weirdest route but it all makes sense when you look back to tell us. How did she get to where you were when you woke up one morning. Did you wanna be like the doctor. The lawyer the airline pilot or heading a major technology initiative. That's right Such a great question. And i would say my path has been like a scribbler line on a paper so i don't know that i repeat it and certainly didn't predict it but i graduated from pretty diversity and i actually started their in engineering and then came out with all sorts of different degrees In communication and and political science and had a real passion for public policy. So i guess this is the world of technology in public policy coming together for me with state ramp but have spent the last twenty years working in or around state and local government. Most recently served for about five years as deputy mayor for the city of fishers indiana at a time that we were transitioning from town to a city and in the last decade between working with the city Also worked with the municipal league here in indiana and the state of indiana on mod modernization efforts. So i kept finding myself back in technology whether it was. How do we delivered digital service for constituents. How do we protect that. And how do we modernized.

About 2000 Texas A&M Students Join COVID-19 Study
"Study to see how the cove in 19 vaccine impacts transmission of the virus. Researchers will compare to groups half that will get the cove in 19 vaccine right away. Well, the rest will delay for a few months. All the reporters Sarah will Ernst talks to principal investigator Rebecca Fisher about what this study could mean for young people across the country. So tell me, what does the study? What does it want to learn? And what kind of questions? Is it trying to answer right. So this study is actually speaking to answer some of the most burning questions, probably in the world right now. So how well and does it Prevent infection on Ben Secondly, say an individual does become infected who has been vaccinated? What does their viral content look like? So how infectious somebody, maybe So does the vaccine limit the number of viruses that a person is carrying? Yeah, so explain that to me. Why are these the burning questions of the moment? It's because we have been waiting for this vaccine with such anticipated And over the past year, But what we know as scientists is that vaccines they're not 100% effective, so let's be clear. Vaccinated. Individuals can pick up the virus and they can pass it on to others. The vaccine doesn't stop those things. The vaccine prepares our body to fight off infection, prevent illness, hospitalization and death. These studies are going to help us understand how transmission is curbed and how many members of a community do we need to vaccinate to hit herd immunity? Um, It'll also help us understand how we can potentially interact safely together as vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. So the study it seems to me that it's chipping away at this question. When can

We're not all good at everything. So i would say big deal only because he just like let it out on everybody but himself i feel like i got a glimpse into who he is as a coach to like.

U.S. health officials raise 'concern' about data from AstraZeneca's vaccine trial
"Yesterday We heard good news about the U. S trial of the AstraZeneca vaccine. But today, US vaccine officials pushed back and question the data, which has yet to be released. It adds to this vaccines messy rollout in Europe, several countries halted vaccinations to investigate a very small handful of possible rare side effects. But public health researchers are cautioning against putting too much focus on all this confusion. No. Another time. This kind of thing has happened right where we have New information, even if it turns out to be a false alarm. That's Gillian Still Fisher, director of the global polling unit at Harvard School of Public Health, she says there's a broader lesson to be learned from what is happening with AstraZeneca. The main global and European monitoring agencies reviewed the global safety data found no proven lengths and concluded that the benefits far outweigh the risks. We should be glad that we have an alarm system. Right, so it's that we're actually doing due diligence. We're actually making sure that the public health side right that these vaccines don't just kind of go out and we don't know what what's happened Some we follow. It will make sure that there is effective in the community as they were in the trial. The AstraZeneca vaccine is one of the main shots being used in the global pandemic response. It is not yet approved in the United States. Dr. Paul off it with Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, says he and others will be assessing all the data to ensure any vaccine is safe and effective. Dr off. It is on the Independent review Committee for covert 19 vaccines in the US, We want to make sure that these studies were done carefully and well before would ever approve the vaccine for use in Americans. Julian. Still, Fisher says This should build even more assurance in vaccines so long as people understand the process and know that their concerns are being addressed. We have an opportunity to build trust in the infrastructure. The Globe currently has an arsenal of several vaccines against covered 19. So far, nearly half a billion doses have been administered

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo again refuses to resign
"Have been moving fast. In governor cuomo's ever expanding set of scandals of the past forty eight hours from the news that his office apparently reached out to a number of different former employees to see if they'd spoken to The first accuser which seems weird an intimidating and it turns out that a former aide says that it was in fact intimidating and she felt bewildered by it to yesterday during an emergency meeting and state assembly announcing is going to be Starting an impeachment inquiry involving both the allegations of sexual harassment and assault as well as the nursing death scandal to about forty percent of his entire parties members in the assembly in the senate signing on asking for him to immediately resign and then there was this morning when representative alexandria ocasio. Cortez tweeted that after two accounts of sexual assault four counts of harassment. The attorney general's investigation. Finding the governor's admitted nursing home data from the legislature in public saying we agree with the fifty five plus members of new york state legislature. That the governor must resign. There was a letter that she put out with congressman bowman then at least eleven of the democratic house representatives from new york called for him to resign and just including jerry nadler button adler by the way and then just as we were going live. Senators schumer and gillibrand both also said that. His time for the governor to resign. As of this afternoon he said that he would would not which is what they always say until they do but he seems like a fighter jank for. What do you think is he. Is he gonna stick around no matter how many people tell them if biden gets involved yeah. I'm really curious what you think. Francesca there's one part of this tournament so that's already interesting of they. There's nothing that i'm talking about. In regards to andrew cuomo he's establishment democrat extraordinary. and he. he's been wrong on so many issues. and he's attacked progressives and good meaning people in behind the scenes a thousand different ways and a he's a political apparatchik extraordinarily now he's claiming like oh i'm just a regular joe. Your name is cuomo governor governor. Don't pretend you're one of us okay. You're an ultimate insider. Any use insider system to attack all of your opponents. You've done it for decades and and as anna keeps pointing out rightfully so the guy caught four hundred million dollars for medicaid actually overall customer is slated to be two and a half billion dollars to talk about of doing it in the middle of the pandemic delayed for after the pandemic but some of the cuts had already that he had done was the reason why they didn't have enough hospital beds and that's why he then took. Two people from the hospital was put in in the nursing homes and then everybody died nursing homes and so for all those reasons he already was a terrible governor from a perspective of people who i was gonna say progresses but really anybody critique of him is correct is my point sexual harassment issue. The only thing i have here is that. And that's why i'm curious. Were both of you guys. Think about it part of me thinks okay yes. Let's go through. The process like seles. Allegation is groping. If that's if that's true that's he should be gone within the minute right. So that's not an that's not a question. The question is how are these. Six six is a lot on the other hand. If you remember al franken it had piled up to be a big number but every one of them was like a fake picture. We took her picture once and put his hand around my shoulder and they were like. Oh levitin mike though. That's not eleven right. That's let's have an investigation so there is a part of me that says is you know. Do we have a. We sure that these are all true. One hundred percent. We can act on it and i get the other point. Which is they all. Have to be one hundred percent true. There's six of them. It looks like we've got an obvious pattern here. So francesca what are you. Oh yeah no. There's when this first broke weeks ago. I was like i've never been more sure that there was a giant iceberg underneath this very very tiny little tip that we're seeing sticking out of the water. You knew the goal and just it's it's his. I don't know. I'm not trying to be anti talion as someone like. Don't don't go to the mafias a brand new things but like the guy in clearly in exactly all the reason that you said in the ways it. He's bullied around his political opponents for years in the ways that he is so trump being in that he's got an gotten everything from his father and then also in the cavalier ways because some of these incidents were while he was rising to stardom. Which i gotta say man. It's been real fun to watch him fall as someone who was never on board for the rise who was look. It's a doing the absolute bare minimum the absolute bare minimum thing. You should do believing in science locking locking things down even though. I don't even think he did that. Amazing of a job. Yes i said it like. It's been nice to watch like. Oh here's the real cuomo and and like it's funny to me that there are so many cuomo's around this country there are so many sort of middling mediocre like kind legacy politicians dynastic politicians. who escaped by they. They assault a couple people. They bully their opponents but they kind of then. Then they get applauded. They come out with a book and they're fine. But i feel like the meteoric rise that he had under covert and the way that he laid into it so much just set him. He set himself up. It's like you could have just the way that trump could have been absolutely fine. Just doing cameos on home alone. Five or whatever it was and then he had to go and run for president And now we're looking at his taxes. So look here's my thing about resignation. I feel like it's a little bit of an escape hatch. And i think for when it comes to actually having investigation actually and as painful it as it is like having the people came forward to testify or discuss it absolutely like not or at least have an investigation. I don't know what it would look like. it feels. There would be more accountability. And i think that so many creeps and so many predators getaway in the workplace because there's no accountability to begin with so i'm not even sure if immediate resignation is accountability. Do do you know what i'm saying. Yeah i actually francesca. I love that point in that gets the another problem in the political system. So cuomo keep saying. I you know i wanted attorney general to do. Finish the investigation as letitia james and if we all believed that our democracy was on the level and politicians warn politicians. I'd say definitely finished investigation. Because i wanted to if he did it and we get it then that gives us closure as opposed to well. He's resigning you to deny it forever. Because then they won't bother finishing the investigation et cetera. Right but the problem is i. Don't trust politicians so is cuomo part of the reason cuomo's doing because he wants to delay it and then he thinks if i can just delayed thousand other political maneuvers to avoid it and the and then he keeps saying he wants so much that i a wonder is fisher. James doesn't look like a political ally of cuomo based on her previous experience right but one if she is something we don't and then they a bs investigation. Those women took you know suffer a second injustice so you think yeah and i just think it's important to mention though that like the investigation of sexual assault or harassment claim. Is it so hard because it is always a. He said she said type of situation. Which is why we have. Things like the slogan survivors right And believe women which because you have predators who will always deny it. I do not foresee a future in which andrew cuomo admits. Anything that i can be sure of. We might hear more about the stories from the from the staffers and the and the people who were he victimized but i do not foresee him being. I guess i remember doing that. No it's not gonna happen so again. I just want set that up that it's not a fair you're never gonna get to the truth kind of thing.

Shorts was really working hard to come back and he said on instagram himself that he was going to be one hundred percent ready to go for this upcoming season. We talked last week all about this week. Being a really difficult week we called it. A massacre at least one coach told me that. And that's what it is. Look at what.

Kansas splits with athletic director Jeff Long two days after parting ways with Les Miles
"Get you updated on what is happening in lawrence kansas. Where less mild was let go the other day and then this afternoon the man who hired him and presumably let him go has also been shown. The door crisslow joining us on that story and others. Chris thanks for the time. Always good to have you on and give us the latest. How did how did how did this happen. So quickly with jeff long. It's great to be with you. Always i I really felt like we heard the news about less miles that this was just it was going to happen with jeff law and just did not senior way. He would survive. I think what happened in a lot of donors a kansas at the end of the day. The president a chance to learn. Douglas giradi heard from several influential donors that they just did not want to be the guy to hire the next head football coach and i think when you look back sort of having all the down with less weight ended there that The more that they thought about it. And i think jeff athletics look long enough to know he said in a statement. Today was going to be a huge distraction more hung around and and they wanna make a clean break. Bring somebody else in to hire the knicks head football coach. Oh by the way they got issues the basketball program. Well they certainly do. And i saw her. Danny manning announced that he was a contender for the ad job. But as we. I don't know whether tennessee is the template but you do need an athletic director to get in there. Fairly quickly don't you. Yeah you don't the what's your proverbial tail wagging the dog. So yeah you gotta bring somebody else somebody. And it's going to be the ad someone that's that's gonna be the football coaches boss. I tell you name to keep in mind. Travis goff and northwestern we went to kansas undergrad. There how highly respected and sort of in the world. And he's a guy that you're going to hear a lot of push for from donors from influential people there k you to bring in to come in higher this the next head football coach. I think a guy will be certainly equipped to deal with. What's going to come their way on the basketball front as well talking to crisslow chris. Let me just take a step back and go back in time time to lsu and unless miles and after this information dumped the other day and learning much more about what happened down there and what didn't happen. I'm curious as a reporter who has covered so many scandals in so many so many big stories in college football just your your takeaway from from the progression of that program with with joe alita and less miles to to really where it is now and where does it go to try to clean up a rather tattered reputation. Yeah you think back to two thousand eleven ten years ago paul. Lsu's on top of the world now. Granted they lost alabama national championship. But that was a great football team In in a team that was is elite as it gets and now here. We are ten years later and they won the championship last year. But a lot of things off the field. A lot of things going on you know you. You always felt like there at the end of his tenured. Lsu that there was a lot of people. They're out to get him. When i say out to get him that wanted to move on. I just felt like they could do better. But as you know you know the sec. As well as anybody yeses. He thinks they can do better. Except for maybe in tuscaloosa And i think the some of the political forces around lsu sorta helpless. We're on his side to leave. Certainly it and four games the sixteen season they got it in. You heard jimbo. Fisher's name all sorts of aim. Tom herman the end up with a lot of people felt like that was never going to work with all the old winter national championship last year and really a great job assembling people going out and getting staff around in but now here we are off the field with this complete invested in investigation. As some of the way things have been handled with sexual assault domestic incidents going back before was head coach So you're right. There's there's a lot on their at lsu Just like kansas. You've got issues with the basketball team as well So it's It's a mess right now. We'll see where it all

"Well i do think it it levels the playing field and just explain briefly because it gives players in these college students a chance to make money off their image. I e if Tell me if. I'm getting this right. If there's let's say someone is buying a jj mccarthy for one you know whatever is numbers number you know number fifteen quarterback jersey if those are flying off the shelves a portion of that money then goes to him right and it works for the schools because they still have title nine. And i don't wanna get too into the woods and this stuff but like title nine forces. You put his exactly as much money into women's sports as you. Men's sports and i've gone through the numbers actually pulled the spreadsheets. There reported publicly. And you can pull these. And it's how schools actually make this work because look at your school and asked me if they're spending as much money on the girl says they are. Guys right yeah. I doubt the women's teams even a quarter of what the head football coaches getting right. But they have ways. They have ways of making the math work. But you're not going to be able to their concern if they start paying players just out of their. Tv money is that they're going to have to pay the women just as much the men and whatnot and they have to take out that whole thing. I don't personally think unsolvable. But they're using that as the reason solvable naming the image likeness doesn't touch that they're not they're not involved right so as long as that's happening i mean you know we put it out there. We want to go blog. Sponsorship from michigan's fullback every year. Yeah we're the fullback for michigan snow funny a month or long. Snap our long snapper. Yeh you'd never walk. I mean that's so. Yeah we jane. I did a special on. Espn years ago. About trying to get jose oquendo into the hall of fame and you know the end result was we got a fake plaque of his put up on the utility closet because we identify with that. 'em go blog identifies with the fullback and long snapper. And that's that's why we love you guys. And that's why we identify with you guys because we you know this is. It's funny and that's kind of the the angle that you guys take and you know same same and those in tiny intricacies go ahead. I i have two questions for you. And then we'll maybe we could talk to you forever. Take a little break. We'll come back into Crickets after this unless this evolved into deeper conversation but let let's use michigan as the example. Because obviously you know deeper about that. And i apologize to anyone. Who's a fan of another team but you can extrapolate this. We're michigan sits. It's a precarious position. There are a lot of teams like that with coaches that they don't know if they want to hang onto this guy they don't know of cova was the reason or not south. Carolina fired their coach. You know you look at it. I don't know how you love snobby in illinois fire. Their coach like there are a lot of places that are like we're done or we're on the edge. We don't know for done. So i want you to tell me how michigan can succeed with harbaugh if he stays and how can they succeed without him and and just let us know in your in your opinion. Because i know you're deep into it i i mean with by football is like i said before a dumb game. You never know what's going to happen. You know you can get into a game and all of a sudden michigan state receiver ricky white freshmen. Who didn't i think he got like eight yards the rest of the season and had one hundred yards against michigan or two hundred yards against that. Yeah yeah so. Footballs dumb things happen to you. At any moment and michigan under harbaugh has been unlucky that the dumb things have not gone their way. In games matter there were perfect opportunity for them to like beat. Ohio state in two thousand seventeen. I think they did be two thousand sixteen but aside from that there were opportunities to have something fun like that too. Like you know a ruin season and you don't have enough guys that year and that kind of thing happens you guys pop out of nowhere. You can have a three star that you've picked up because you missed out on your best three targets. Yeah and then that guy turns into chase winovich. You never know where these guys are coming out of. So that kind of thing could certainly happen to most any program does not a bad coach. I think he's kind of the program. It's kind of lost. Its way because they've been jumping from one. Emergency the next to try to fix the fact that they're getting their butts kicked by ohio state every year yep and the desperation leads to bad decisions or hopeful decisions like this year. They went into the season without a quarterback. And then all of a sudden. You're losing games because you don't have a cornerback and then you losing games because you changed your entire defense because you didn't have a cornerback. And that's how these programs really cascade. That's how you go from being a team. It's like a disappointing four and two to a team. That's two and four and talking about firing coach. Right one of the ways that tried and true in college football to fix the narrative no matter what position you're in is fire. Coaching get a new one because everyone loves the new coach and everyone hates the old coach. Because you're used all his foibles and you're used a blaming him for all the things that were his fault and weren't his fault right. And and those things accumulate so when you got a new guy you know we. Let's say we bring in matt campbell. Matt campbell's in ohio guy matt campbell's a young guy who could be here for thirty years if if he works out he's beaten texas he's got a fancy cool defense it'll bring his fancy call defensive coordinator and liotta us michigan's resources to do things that he was never able to before that's the ceiling and if we bring him in raw believing in the ceiling other people are believing in the ceiling and they're committing to him and for while it might work and then also it might not work. Maybe matt campbell doesn't like to cheat. And we're getting trounced recruiting or he. He's not ready to deal with the program size of michigan and like you know facing defeat and like it looks terrible or he makes bad decisions because like you know. He believes too much in ohio guys and didn't go after some florida guys. That were better. You never know what's gonna see an no shows you how vast the decisions are so if they continue. This is fascinating i. That's that's pretty much where it is and like what about fire. Why illinois fire lovey smith. The guy was fine right. You want some fun games. He was a nice guy. People like him beard beard. But what of michigan keeps our. What if harbor doesn't get any attention from the nfl. What of harbaugh is what he is saying. Which is i. don't care what they pay me. This school means too much to me. I got more money than i need. my kids are happy here. I made a problem that i need to fix essentially in his mind. He's like it's the it's the second quarter and were down twenty points. Not it's the fourth quarter with a minute left and we're down twenty watts. He's like. I got two more quarters to fix this. Gimme the time what. How is it possible. I.

Twenty eighth her mother. Debbie Reynolds died. Your mother is Debbie Reynolds. You had a very contentious relationship with her when you were a teenager. And I think that probably continued into your twenty s and that you know you worked in her her Broadway show you were you were in the chorus of that. He Sang in her Broadway. Act You know in her cabaret act for a while so you work together the other in some ways you were very close in some ways like very far apart you were anxious to move away from home. How did your relationship change as she became an older woman? Like when you became elect now like your middle-age cheese or or or older. She's in her eighties. What's is the relationships? Contentious says a chain. Not at all I can appreciate. She's an immensely powerful woman and I just admire my mother very much. She also annoys me sometimes when she's mad at the nurses but you know she's an extraordinary every woman extraordinary. There's very few women for her generation. Who worked like that? Who just kept a career going all her life and raise children and had horrible relationships and lost all our money and got it back again? I mean she said an amazing in life and She's someone to admire. Did you appreciate her strength. And her accomplishments more as you got the older the whole God. Yeah when I was a kid I just thought she was someone who was telling me what to do and I didn't WanNa do it. How did you you feel about her celebrity? When you're young? Was it helpful. Was it intrusive. Well it I had to share her and I didn't like that when we went out people sort of walked over me to get to her and no. I didn't like it. I didn't like it and I you know people thought that I overheard someone saying what she thinks. She's so great because she's Debbie Reynolds daughter and and I didn't like it made me different from other people. I wanted to be the same I wanted to be. You know just no Jeffrey than anybody else. Your mother's most iconic film is singing in the rain You know one of the great musicals of of all time. What are your your thoughts about the movie and if you like like it now did you always or did it? Take you awhile to appreciate that film. No I always liked it. It's brilliant Irene to to do the transition from sound from silent to sound is a brilliant brilliant time to focus on and what was interesting interesting to me is that there's three people acting in the movie then it's two men and a female and the same with Star Wars and both movies were sort of a conic at well would they did the five ten top films and one was singing in the rain and one was star wars. That's so great. You're on the list together. I know you're right that you felt doomed to have bad relationships with men. That's what you've seen Eddie Fisher. Your father walked out on your mother when you were to to be with. Elizabeth Taylor Your mother's second husband Spent all her money. I mean left her with nothing the left her with nothing and and she had to pay his jets so future earnings went to him. Everything she made went to his jets to Harry Karl who was also having sex with hookers the entire length of their relationship which she found out later on. So did we so. It was a very interesting childhood so when women dressed like you at comecon conventions what do you most frequently see reflected back at. You like which which costumes which hairdos my favorite one. To see is the Metal Bikini on men that is happening a lot. Oh absolutely absolutely a lot and not thin men by the way that's hilarious.

Yeah well it has to do with very deep things things you know because it's might be that imagining yourself as a girl is a diminishment But it is something it when I made the Devil Wears Prada. It was the first time in my life thirty years of making movies that a man came up and said I know how you felt. I know. Oh how you've I have a job like that. It's the first time first time first time and they say lots of things. I think they've this is what I was trying to you. Say in that speech. It's very hard point to make because I guess hard to wrap your head around it but for men. The most usually the FAV- favorite character. I've ever played his Linda in the deer. Hunter without question of the heterosexual men that have. I've spoken to over the years. That's usually they say you know my favorite thing you've ever done. This was Linda or or Sophie and they were particular kind of very feminine recessive kind of personality. They so they fell in love with her but they didn't feel the story through her body and it took to the devil wears Prada to play someone tough. Who who had to make hard decisions was running organization? And sometimes that takes making tough decisions for certain kind of men to empathize empathize. That's the word empathize. Feel the story through her. That's the first time anybody is ever said that. They felt that way. That's really interesting. Yeah what's a women. Tell you their favorite rollers. Oh they love everything okay. They've they've you think I mean it's a range of stuff so do you like seeing yourself scream. North added an uncomfortable experience. I I don't dislike like it. I don't pop in the CD the DVD that again. But but I do think when you know sometimes the scrolling through the TV. And there's something on and I look at it and I think Oh my God.

"Support for how I built this. And the following message come from ally, you wouldn't settle for a two star restaurant. So why do you settle for a two star Bank? Don't be satisfied ally. Makes it their mission to be better ally. Do it right ally Bank member FDIC, so today story isn't just about a clothing brand that's had a huge influence on fashion and the business of fashion. It's actually a story about overcoming fears and deep personal insecurities because back in the early eighties. Eileen Fisher was extremely introverted and even terrified at the idea of speaking to buyers and customers about her clothes how she overcame that. It's a pretty cool story it I ran in two thousand seventeen and I hope you enjoy it. I was so freaked out the first day, I literally couldn't speak. I just did their people would ask me questions. Like how much does it cost? What's the style number, and I like froze and other people in my booth would help me out say, you know, oh, why don't you come back tomorrow show? I was like a deer in headlights. From NPR how I built this of show about innovators, entrepreneurs idealists and the stories behind the movements. They built. I'm guy rise. And on the show today. How an introverted interior designer got over her stage fright to launch. I lean Fisher a multi-million dollar clothing company for women. So if you know a little bit about the clothing industry, the giants especially for women's apparel are brands like Chanel and verse satchi and Prada, and of course, h Namen Zara. So given that I lean Fisher does about three hundred million dollars a year in revenue it's comparatively small, but in women's fashion, the brand is also incredibly influential and not just for the designs. But how Eileen Fisher started her company to be precise with just three hundred and fifty dollars. She never took a dime from outside investors. And she still owns about sixty percent of her company her employee's own the rest now if you've seen the close you'll know that they're pretty spare and minimalist low key. But also elegant which is sort of how you might describe. I lean Fisher. It's funny because lately I've been kind of calling myself shy extrovert. I think I don't know that I'm wired so much that way. I just think that something I was kind of shut down when I was young, you know, the classroom. I remember there were like sixty kids in my Catholic school classroom, and it was just always safer to to hide and to be small and not speak owing grew up in a middle class family in does Plaines Illinois in the nineteen fifties and sixties she had five sisters and a brother her dad worked as an accountant for a local company in her mom's spent her days at home doing laundry and cleaning and making dinner for all nine of them. I think, but I mostly remember as my mother, you know, her kind of unhappiness, I think it was hard raising seven children. I think she felt it was her job to do all the hard work. And my dad felt you know, his job is to go to work and make the money in her come home and be taken care of after that. So she would pretty much. Kind of we call it ranting and raving all and then my dad would come home and just before my dad would come home. She would get dressed and get the meal ready and sometimes even put on lipstick, and I just remember. I was about sixteen and my mother had a breakdown, and my father said that the next day he was driving to work, and he had to pull over on the side of the road. And he broke down crying realizing that he had thought only a few days before that these were the happiest days of his life. But there were happy. You know, there were a lot of happy moments. Yeah. We played the kids played, you know, we had the neighborhood suburbs and bicycles and we'd play kick the can at night and the good humor truck came down the street, and we got ice cream things like that. So you know, it was pretty much. Your typical suburban experience. I think I lean what after college at the university of Illinois in the late nineteen sixties without any real idea of what she wanted to do. She started out as a math major, but eventually she decided on interior design. I just love fabric and color and playing with the shapes and back to my mom for second. I had sewed with my mother when I was younger. So that was some my happy memories. With my mother. I used to have these pictures in my mind close I wanted to wear we would go shopping and I loved being the fabric store that was one of my favorite places to be in her early twenty. I lean moved to New York with a friend, but with no real plan. Now, this was nineteen seventy two when you could actually find an apartment in Manhattan for a hundred bucks a month. So to pay rent, I lean started doing some freelance graphic design gigs, and eventually she got a job working with a Japanese graphic designer named ROY you she Mora. Yeah. I was in assistant. So I started just doing whatever needed to be done and we designed logos. And we designed packages things for banks. And then we did stuff for Japanese clients, Kirin beer and things like that. And after a short while we were like working together. And you know, we ended up getting into a relationship which was like, no, no. And were you traveling were you did you go to Japan? Right. Right. So this is exactly where the clothing idea came

"Welcome back to the forecast. This is Kevin here. And of course, we had a little bit more of a break these last couple of weeks between depths so with Molly and this one with Mark Fisher, which I think you guys are gonna love and actually recorded this awhile ago, like months ago with Mark it is probably probably the best shot that we've had together the guys are really gonna love it. But again, I've tried to take some time off to really re-think what this show is going forward the topics and the conversations that I want to have discussed on here. And I think we are pretty close pretty close to seeing you know, what the next, you know, fifty episodes of the show will be to give you a little bit of a taste of it. Now. You know, I think things have been ramping up to this. The idea that, you know, we need to really do a better job as an industry as educators, as you know, health professionals, whatever you wanna call it because we're still. There's still a lot of room for improvement. Let's put it that way on this. Sometimes might even mean, you know, having folks on the show that that I disagree with and and trying to get a better idea of why they do things are certain way say things as certain way, maybe we can find some some common ground on some stuff, and maybe they can convince me o of some things otherwise. So it will be interesting. But again, I I want to continue to use the show as an education as an outlet to kinda push back on some things and as a way for us to all get better as a as a community as an industry, and that's that's what I've been having to make sure I take a step back think about a little bit more in depth think about again, the conversations that I wanna have the topics. I don't wanna cover and the tone that we should have for that stuff. Again. I think a big part of it is just to make sure we have different conversations. There's fourteen Brazilian podcasts right now in and I want to make sure that we're having, you know, better discussions. You know, a hit I want to just do the same thing as as everyone else's. So thank you for your patience at promises going to be worth it. And in the meantime, here is an awesome interview. With Mark Fisher that no you guys are gonna love I really enjoyed it. So let's get into that right now without any further delay..
