In in twenty eleven hank address the managed medicaid congress about principles for structuring effective long-term care programs as well as the medicare market innovations conference about opportunities for strengthening up plans. Five star quality rating is reviews on some of the challenges facing the healthcare industry were published earlier this year in payers and providers. So as you can imagine. He is a wealth of knowledge in this space hank so privileged to have you here with us. Thanks for joining now. It's my honor. Thank you very much forever me absolutely now you know. Is there anything that i left out of that bio you've done so much and i know that like we could probably have a five hour long. Podcast talking about that but anything you want to add. I don't think so salty. The opportunities that i have been fortunate to have especially recently is we kinda shifted in the early years of our firm you would have known all of our clients. They were national names. They were large healthcare providers systems moving into the healthcare health plan space in the last four years probably would have heard of almost none of our clients as we are moving rapidly into the venture capital and private equity market says. They are launching into healthcare. So it's a very interesting dynamic. Kind of change is fascinating and interesting and so from knowing all of them to not knowing all of them the markets big and it's dynamic soli is yeah and it's shifting the way you know. The players are shifting from where the dollars are coming from. And who's playing so. I'm very intrigued with your perspective. So hank what what would you say is what moves you. Why did you pick healthcare healthcare. Probably picked me almost by serendipity. But i've loved the work i have grown up in business as a developer. I've started health plans for the last thirty years and i just absolutely lucked into the healthcare space. At a time when it was morphing from sort of a fee for service model to more of a manager model i had the opportunity back then to be part of the strategic leadership of a couple of plans thinking about how healthcare had to change in order for us to improve quality for members to obtain some real deficiencies in the way. We ran our business so it really found me. I didn't find it nice. Well that's fantastic hank and You know what it found you and you answered the call and you've done a lot of great things so talk to us about the work that you're doing at strategic health group. What exactly you guys do in. How are you offering value to the healthcare ecosystem. That's an interesting question. We start from the framework that we are healthcare consumers first before we are advisers and so we take our knowledge of the infrastructure of the ecosystem and look crew ways to find new solutions to higher quality to more member engagement meeting their particular needs finding new solutions to some of the challenges of healthcare one of the ways. I think we bring significant value to to this is that we are not afraid. Even though we we've grown up in the healthcare system unafraid to challenge some of the status club when not afraid to look at new tech solutions. I've always been. I think regarded as a somewhat of a risk taker. I'd like to think it was as an intelligent risk taker. Just risk for risk sake but thinking through how we can challenge the norms and improve the system for those patients for those members who require healthcare services particularly those who are the most vulnerable. Some of our long-term care patients those with severe chronic illnesses. This so much more that we can do. And i think we help challenge some of those part of the way we've done this. We've started a dozen health plans in the last ten years and match of the work with the plans who were starting out. As ben round new people who are coming to the market with new ideas they are challenging conventional wisdom they are challenging what we have always thought of as healthcare infrastructure and how to approach it. And i think we're able to help them. As strategic advisors to implement and focus on some markets where they can expand those concepts into the marketplace. That's very interesting. You know you guys have have started many health plans so doing this. You're very familiar with the operations with the laborer with the markets. What would you say makes what you do different. And maybe better than what's available today. There's a ton of you know agencies out there that wanna help. So what is it that you would say is the difference maker of what you guys offer one of the things that i think that is most important is we bring only individuals to the table who have had cease. We'd experience so everybody on our team has been a member of the cease week. Ceo president chief medical officer chief compliance officer. So that's the level of talent that we're bringing in. I'm not trying to downgrade those organizations. Some really good consulting firms around the country but many of them during in untested unexperienced individuals to the table. And they're helping to learn not very bright but they haven't had the sort of the scars of mistakes and we have certainly made our share over the years as executives and our goal is to make sure that our clients don't make the same mistakes. It's a big difference maker. If you've been there and done that you likely have the scars to show for it and are able to help you know if somebody with an mba somewhere. That hasn't been in that seat. They likely can't tell you those little intricacies those those distinctions that your team probably has right even have to make tough decisions as a member of that cease week whether it's a clinical decision or a business decision strategy. And unless you've been there and done that it's tough to always assume that you know what you learn in a textbook is going to work in the real world i again. I'm not trying to downgrade or disrespect what those individuals bring to the table but for an organization who wants tested leadership. I think that's the key difference for us. Yeah and it makes a difference if you're going to do something. Learn from the best learn from the people that have been there done that. So i'm really curious. Thank you know you had this at the very beginning scan health plan a near death experience and you guys turn it around. I mean give me the high level on that because like i'm just really curious about what you believe was the problem and then how you put it together to to make it skyrocket so the situation at the time that a new leadership team came in and david schmidt was the new. Ceo who came in the organization was under voluntary supervision with the state regulatory authorities. It had i think they had taken their high audible in terms of managing the risk that they were taking that said dave brought in a completely mostly new leadership team..

My junior high school orchestra in my grade school orchestra. Remember when Philly heart call me and he said, I heard you play and I wanted to find out if you wanted to get together and form a band. I remember being in Lawrence, Kansas and seeing him playing and singing, and I just thought that is a guy that I need to be in a band with. I've never seen anybody else like that guy. I've never heard anybody play like that guy and I've never heard anybody sing that way, Robbie said. Do you guys have a tape? So I sent him a reel to reel and he called back. He said. Awesome. I'm in that piece Audio from the documentary Kansas Miracles out of nowhere. Robby Steinhardt was unusual. He played the violin. Yeah, we have fiddle players. But this guy was a true classical violin player in a rock band and just totally helped to, you know to to forge a new sound, of course. As we mentioned dust in the wind, but carry on my wayward son, another favorite of theirs that I love playing the game tonight like that one as well point of no return. So the list goes on and on just some great music. Romney Robby Steinhardt dead at the age of 71 from pancreatitis, So it's a little sad news there for you, and I'm like I say, partly personal.

It's great to have you. Your new live album celebrates fifty years of tower powers. so first. congratulations. You made it. The album was recorded a live. Show in oakland california where the ban got their start. But first let's let's go back a little bit. Take us back to how you got your start. What was it that got you to. I pick up the saxophone when you were a kid. I got caught stealing the t shirt and a really short crime. Career won t shirt got caught. That was not a content crook. You're so you know. My dad said he gave me a notebook. I made me apologize to the shop. And then he gave me a notebook and he said with the reason why you're never gonna steal again while you're in your bedroom. Think of something. That's going to keep you occupied in trouble this summer. You never come out of there. And the beatles just come out and my friend just got a guitar and we said we want to blame music dad and he goes Get in car is me and my brother. We both got caught. So we get into the car and takes us to the ministrations. Anything you want and obvious misrouted though the wall you know. And i pointed to the sax my brother pointed to the drums. I had a band the first day we didn't like practice our instruments for years and years and enjoy a band. We started the band and then we learned how to play. We did it completely backwards. So i've had a band ever since that day. Why was it the saxophone that you pointed to. My dad was a bartender at this place at that time called niro snuck it was at the cabana In palo alto which is kind like caesar's palace very nice and it was a what they call a show bar with these bands called show being on the big beach in the swinging. Lads and sometimes we would go there to pick my data from work and those bands be rehearsing and they were really good. They had a bunch of horns. You're very good players. And i always thought the sax player was the coolest guy in my brother was. The drummer was the coolest guy. So you're born in detroit And then the band you know. It started in california. How did you get from detroit to california. Why did that move happen. When i was eleven years old. My dad lost his job. He worked at a place called pinkas in detroit right downtown west grand boulevard and he got fired and the always wanted to go to the west coast His mentor this guy that taught him at a tin bar and actually had a steel as a bartender. Bartender stole and he had moved out to san francisco. And he said you. Jackie need to come out here and So my dad. I guess he figured do not can be just as broken. San francisco's they can in detroit and we went through. You know route route sixty six all that we did the grand canyon. The painted desert. You know everything you know. And it was a great trip out in california people ever since. Yeah i mean you brought a little bit of detroit with you by starting a band called the motown's you start that band with baritone sax players stephen doc kuka. When did you discover that. You and i had a great songwriting chemistry covered that we both had this huge affinity for soul music and he was passionate about it in the you never met nobody more passionate about music than me you know and so we hit it off right away and Back then. I used to do this thing with the songs where i didn't like to do. All the soul tunes at everybody else you know. Knock on wood and hold on. I'm coming in. So i tried to do obscure soul songs from the albums and one day dot comes to me in. He says you know it's so great what you're doing with these songs. But why are we doing everybody. Else's psalm one. Are we right around. And i always tell people. I don't know if that thought ever would have come to be totally happy. What i was doing you know and i go. We can try that you know and you know a couple of days later went over this department. We wrote over for song and still today. It's gonna remove spain the socks you're still young. Man i tell people the clinics say it's been downhill ever since you're still a young man. I've heard that it draws for some of your own personal experience. We're going to listen to it next.

"His ego wants to get their stuff in the script. Yeah that's gotta be. It's really interesting too when you tear apart comedy and your building and making jokes and then trying to run them by people. It's hard enough if it's just missing that one little thing also within the eleven times by the eleventh time thinks it's funny. Yeah yeah it's it. It's that element of surprise for the first time that gets the lap. But if you keep going over and over and over over nobody laughs. As a matter of fact shared show when they were running cameras november blocking and they were script. Day would go blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. And then i walked into blah blah blah blah blah. Because they wanna give the punch lines to the crew so that they get the laugh for the crew as well. Oh interesting because you can't you give your song twelve times. would you can only hear a joke. Once or twice he s. Exactly i think you nailed it with that. Surprise being that crucial element for the laugh. Because once you go you went here my favorite joke with just again. The year ago women into women walks into a pharmacy and she says the pharmacist. I want cyanide to kill my husbands and the pharmacist is. I can't give you cyanide to kill your husband. She reaches into a person she pulls out a photo and she ends the photo to the pharmacist. She says that's my husband with your wife in the farthest and says well you tell me ahead of prescription. That's great joke. That's my favorite joke. That is amazing did you. Did you write that. No roberta me that joe. She called me. Do you want to hear the best joke. And i said church. She she told me I followed and i laugh at nothing. You know i love. Nut is the matter. I add the most inappropriate sense of humor. Because i said a funeral of a friend's father guy's father was like my father was. I love this man and he was in the army so they had a color guard and they haven't american flag and they were folding the american flag their folding folding it and it took them twenty minutes to fold the the flag in the you know and i just said to know that's how i volt might sheets and the whole place broke up in the my friend steven was his name is also steve journey. That's hilarious and i had heard somewhere that you all you like to take those dark maybe macabre or kind of dark moments and make humor out of it which i think it really school. That's all my lays. I have a play about death. I have a play about suicide. I play about alzheimer's every play about cancer. I of lick and they're all comedies. I love to take dark subjects and treat them like my book. Take my prostate. Please clear that is. That's a book about prostate cancer. And all i did was i. I had i had gone through that and all i did was. I got home every night. After i would go ahead to do that day. I would just chronicle what happened that day and it turns out it was third out to be very funny because i just see the world different than most people. That's so funny. And i think it takes such it takes skill to write comedy and be funny in general but then also taking such dark moments that a lot of people when they first hear about death cancer. Anything like that. They can trigger an emotion for that to be able to flip it and make it funny is leveling up from just unbelievable stuff you under the truth. Writing comedy is the easiest they might do. Truly walking into a room full of strangers. That's l. but sitting down. Underwriting comedy is it's second nature and years is an interesting story. I'm gonna tell you please. I have a russia as opposed to all this crap. I've been talking I have a russian travelagent. And i said to him you know my whole family was from the ussr and he said where i said well edessa and he said to me. Well then you must have a good sense of humor. I said what are you talking about. Is it odessa's are known for their sense of humor and there's a festival that goes back centuries that started in odessa and i said would you know what i do said no and i told him he's will. That makes perfect sense end. The funny thing is the blue stein side of my family. The blue stein said we all have the same sense of humor. My cousin bobby. Micheals didi my aunt. Easy my uncle. My my cousin di di. We all have the same sense of humor. It's really a larry. I'm the only one that you know when as a as a career the cash in on that sense of humor my father owned. My father had the same sense. If you my father could do voices could yeah. He was it was real but he he worked with my uncle. Noah actually my father. You know the comedian ben. Blue ben blue that he was an old from the forties recognized my father's talent and wanted to take my father on the road but y grandfather said no and so that is actually the model i used when my mother was so against my being joe business i said you know i can either go after my green or end up working into stationery store which is what my father and i decided i was going to go after my jury and my mother was bitch she just truly was in thirty five years she never gave away single joe not want me said to a friend what did he write a book for. Nobody cares about his life literally. So what i know i know so. That's what the point of pines really deals with that a lot. You know how that negatively was funneled.

Welcome to dressed. Thank you so much. And i'm glad to be with you. Yeah of this is truly an honor to have you here today. And i have to say i have not been this excited about a book in a very long time. I've i've read a lot of fashion history books and this one is is so beautifully written. It's so beautifully illustrated so many stories so much love and friendship and of course there's so much fashion in this book. It's such a beautiful mosh to your time in the supremes and the clothing. That was part in parcel to that experience. So i'm curious. What inspired you to write this wonderful book. Wow well it was fairly easy. Because i had already written books about the supreme so therefore you know it was one of the things will. My research was not as it didn't take as long because i had so much research from the other books. And you know writing about the supremes and our biography and and talking about how much we had accomplished and our career was a pleasure to actually sit down now and do something not just write about the book but do show pictures and and and the looks and what was behind the singing which was more fashion so it was really a lot of fun. Sort of demonstrating what we did in not just on recording and the music but how we look at how he felt when we were certain count and so was all about the gallons per gallon down to just like we were onto all those years and many of them are in your personal collection cracked. Have i think in the book. There's over twenty four sets of matching onstage on sambas so not just one of the dresses but all three of the dresses. How did you go about comprising this collection. Well First of all we supreme florence ballard diana ross and i would always travel and when we came home from the road we'd have to store the gown and then of course by new gowns or designers with bring us new gowns and some of the old account that we made perhaps worn on television We went to store them. And they accumulated who Throughout all the years right And as you know florence was no longer mcgrew. Diane was no longer in the group. And then we had the seventies supremes And i became sort of like the keeper of of everything and the manager of the trains and all those different things. So i accumulated the gown because of that and whenever anyone would leave As you know a couple of them. Did i ended up with all these counts because no one can take the guy. No one can take the gal with them. You know we the supremes as a group paid for them. And that's how. I ended up with the majority of the gals. Now all other gallons should be in my possession but The reason that i can't tell you how many i have is because many have been not just lost and i won't say stolen you know things have just disappeared. And then some of the places we have them stored you know. I don't i couldn't figure out where everything was stored inside. All these years asked the supreme i have just been Trying to recover those downs that are not in my collection but it really is my collection. Because as i said when i left everything was left to me also should say that even though they were left to me and i had bare instead of three Sometimes i ended up with just one but all three gowns were overset were supposedly with me.

"Broom head show. On our news, 92 3 FM and the news after Hey, Thanks for being here this morning. Appreciate you spending some time with us. Ah, good. Ask for your indulgence for just Ah moment or two. Really hard news Last week, I found out that a friend had passed away and I didn't even know that she was sick, and I was so taken aback by it that I didn't get a chance to say goodbye to her or have any conversation with her family. It is such a strange thing because it's not someone that I saw very often. I would see a couple of times a year at events and but they had this family had made such an impact on me. Her name is Julie Brady. And she passed away and had been sick for a while and then and I had no idea she was even sick. Because she was still doing her volunteer work. She was still doing the things that should Sunday school teacher in the LDS Church Cub Scout leader she was the founding member of the Cowgirl Historical Foundation. And this is an equestrian group, and it's to keep. It's to keep the history of the cowboy and the history of the West out there, but it was also a way for them to do charity work. Every year. I've been honored to be the emcee at the Veterans Medical Leadership Council's luncheon. And the Cowgirls come every year as a voluntary group, and they're dressed up in the most beautiful outfits, and they sell raffle tickets for the event, and they do charity work all over Arizona and She led this organization for so long, and she was just one of those people that made you want to be better. She made you just feel loved When you're around her. She was just a kind ist Always in a good mood, always with a smile on her face, always encouraging, always asking what she could do for you or for other people. It was just such an impressive life that she led by that example in all of the girls in the foundation. That's really what I knew them for. Kind of took her lead. These were just some of the nicest people I've ever met, and they've suffered such a tough loss. Her Children teach us 21 grand Children, and it was just such a light to people and I don't know if this makes sense to you. But there are times you hear of a passing of someone. And you're surprised at how hard it hit you when it happens because you really hadn't contemplated how much that person meant to you because you didn't see them very often. But this family has made in her daughter and family members that I've met. And the girls in the Cowgirl Historical Foundation have made such an impression on me over the years that when I found out that Julian passed away, I was so sad that I never I didn't get a chance to say goodbye. And it struck me how much That organization is meant to me and how much her leadership has meant in the community. But she was just such a quiet, graceful person. She never asked for accolades. I imagine she'd be very embarrassed. I was even talking about it right now, but just such a good person, and it's such a sad loss for her family. And I'm happy that she's no longer in any pain but obviously saddened for family who are missile, Mr Dearly. And what in true fashion of what she would do? She's asked people instead of sending flowers to the people that knew her asked them to do a good deed. They call it a jeweled deed instead of Julie, like a jeweled D do a good deed give to a cause for first responders are veterans. To do something like that, which I thought was probably the most fitting tribute to her, because that's exactly what she would have wanted is not to be anybody to pay attention to her, but to do something for someone else. So I think that really tells you the story of who who she is, and I was very honored years ago. They asked me if I would narrate. They did a routine at rodeos around the country around the state. And Ah, I narrated this routine for them, and it really was a joy to do, And some people had mentioned that they had heard it and watching them was so impressive and all the practice that they did, and all the charitable things they did was all volunteer work out of just out of the goodness of their hearts. And that heartbeat really was her. She was the the the heartbeat of that organization, so she will be sorely missed by those who loved her. And I just wanted to say a formal goodbye. I wasn't able to to her family, or I was certainly wasn't able to say goodbye to Julie. But what a loss for her family and people that loved her. And such a, You know, a big a big part of the community, So I just wish I could've been there and said good bye in person and what? Ah What a tough loss for that family. It kind of puts things in perspective. I guess for me, I get so caught up in in all of these things that are going on in the world right now, and I'm like you. I get immersed in them. I get immersed in the news of the day. I want schools open and having that battle with Let's get the school's opening businesses and And the elections coming up in all of these kind of either adversarial things, but they're kind of consuming were so I guess I get to have blinders on where I only see what's right in front of me. And something like this happens, and it forces you to open your eyes to the bigger picture, And I think more than anything else that was my thought this morning.

right right and you you're going to church digitally and warm just kind of home schooling the kids again sort of going to church is the way is a new one for me that that one took a little bit getting used to air first digital further last Monday became the art there my youngest started kind of work at home stuff tomorrow and I I mean I know that their parents out there that haven't heard talking about your kid clean out the garage I know their parents out there that are doing stuff with their kids on and off I mean we're we don't even know what it is right now the scheduled all the front desk but raising it's quite yeah it is yeah we've it's not we've gone from from Tonya driving the kids around to you know play practice and and this the you know school and that they advance in all the time it's like she was a shuttle service and knitted to nothing like the kids are home and it's like well the who is this creature in the other room I I don't recognize them they're my children it's weird how fast things stopped thank god and I kind of I like that the home of my older went off to college for the evening our freshman year what the all the fun all right so that was that was awful and I'm actually the phone the phone very bad but I'm actually kind of grateful for the time I feel like you know we get a little bit of extra time because I'm sure the world going to ship back into high gear Europe then but I'm you know I'm happy that we can have the gold I just I am with all of them awfulness that happening when the virus and everything I just I feel like we're supposed to kind of take the time together and we are a family and and do stuff and we play every play all kinds of stuff with the games and yeah I do my stuff and then we have the first nine we play hide and go seek acceptance a new version is called hide hi okay and then you're going to find us nope just go hide so your your your book is about grace which is seems really timely especially with there's there's absolutely no grace extended to people anymore there's no grace especially extended to this president everything he does he's ahead of the rest of the world and he'll get bashed for it and then you know when Europe today they're making all kinds of announcements that Europe is closing all of the borders and they're canceling all flights and you can't if you're you're being called home late that's what he did and he was called all kinds of names for it now with the rest the world is doing it they're brilliant they're all brilliant we should be more like them well we work last week yeah what we gotta talk to me a little bit about grace in this in this time period well I and I and and I think that's right it's not just great that that has nothing at all so the ability for society to for gas there is a cancellation of forgiveness and an outright refusal of redemption and I think I mean that I can't believe that work were even doing there during a pandemic I mean that seems to me that that would be the time that you would exhibit I'm afraid your fellow man that you would try to do the best you could to be a good steward and instead of a very plain politics and they're really worried about what communist China as it relates to their responsibility in writing a pandemic but it isn't it I hate when I started writing this book and there were a couple of things that contributed to the idea of it the person was the way my kids reacted to the parkland town hall and the second thing was a norm macdonald interview because he I absolute median of all time I think he's one of the smart media Dr Eric all and he had made a good point that you wouldn't be spending more than bars he was saying okay she did something wrong and she apologized and she can try and where is the forgiveness isn't that kind of how the closing the company wants to apologize anymore because nobody wants to forgive anybody I thought that's exactly right and that it contributes to the whole of tribal invasion because it's not about persuading people to vote early destroying then it's more of an act politics now is more of an exercise in ego then it is actually trying to move the ball down the field and advocate for one issue and sell back that's how the book started and I I get it all they talk about the death of you want how political conversation is incredibly stupid now and of course they're being looked at that and rage mob chapter and I get into the media's role as well so if there there's a lot in it and I usually I didn't want to write it but I ended up writing I if it was something that I think is that I came up with and I regretted it like you know two thirds of the way and by all the promises being tested and I was mad about it I didn't want to write I will I will I actually and a couple of different points consider Jack burning it all down and I wanted to write a ridiculous hello all and shoot it all into the stratosphere and just let the fire burn burning bridges by my path that's all I wanted to go we need a lot at the rate this book all the more yeah it's really it's really hard because you all you want to do is pay people back really all really yeah you give me the thought that was funny I thought that was funny mmhm now you're sitting in a hot speed off the hot seat look what's coming your way it you just want to pay people back but it's not good when you do now you know that as well as I do how great for people can be and how relentlessly gracefully they can be and I I you know and I think that that it can it's a choice I mean to give grace the someone and I think that there are some people who are like minded that think it is I thank them or that it is complicity or it is just you're just going to go along with it you're going to accept that that's not a great this operation simply on merit I know and the people who deserve it the least and in fact when you really need to take it and again tomorrow and but it is a choice and it's not my first choice I mean for crying out loud you know me I mean come on let's not not no no no this is not anybody's first choice right I mean come on it is but it's really not anybody's first choice it is I mean it goes against what I would call the natural man the natural man defends himself the natural man swings back you swing at me my instinct is to swing harder and and you know the natural man is an enemy of his enemy is an enemy of god my we are supposed to rise above that animal exactly where and and and that's it really and some of the way that that that it's a form of what and I have to say that I feel that in terms of First Lady because you know I've asked myself too especially as my kids started getting older my older son now wanted on a constitutional law he did the baking he get a hall all over it and I was actually kind of discouraging him from five hundred and a great parenting but I did not want him to think that yeah the only acceptable way to respond or handle discussion in the country and in culture wise you have to be so it'll work so hard for and be completely emotionless and I believe that any kind of empathy or any kind of you know anything if the volatility graces in a vulnerability and I you know I really was was very cognizant of that and I I I realize if if I get anything I need to model it for him better than expected the political culture care because that's not what happened so at least you know if you see me modeling it for and then you know maybe that's at least something that the FIFA point that you know that and then I'll be happy but I I really think this is a very hard and I know that him and his friends is that really a lot operating for them than it was for me when I was their age and I I really wanted them to have that I know that was highly important for so let's go back in and talk a little bit about the the media and the way they're and doing all of this what do you see coming you know we're we're sitting in a time where the media has so discredited themselves that because everything has been a way to get Donald Trump on our side of the aisle or or less willing to accept that corona virus is a big deal and it it is a big deal it's not that we're all gonna die it's just that we all have to do what we're all supposed to do and you know there was an article where was it maybe in the new York times a camera where it was it was in a lefty paper in it and it was talking about how there will be more conservatives that die from this than liberals don't know if that's true or any way to even prove that however their point was because liberals are taking this seriously but I think this is because of the press if the roles were reversed the exact same thing would be happening in the opposite yeah do you agree or disagree I think that's something that I mean I I think that they have made it the waiter came over and over and then I have I'm not surprised that they've done it by I don't know that and I'm at the point where I don't think I could ever it universally speaking I don't think I could ever recover my respect for so many and that industry I think it's I think it's it's just something that the level of all time and the way that they have banned so gleefully warning and then a medium between what China is is in fifteen they're they're trying to they're engaging in a propaganda war we have people in the media that are actually in them with that I thought headline thank you for mac yeah and they were they were going after the United States Senate no they they will help organizations without calling it the Chinese qualifier Republic of pulling back the Republicans including a pregnant with me yeah well you know what China also bans the World Health Organization over a barrel and that the date for Taiwan from international meetings about a pandemic and and they also had the World Health Organization praising and just at the end of January for everything that they've done really essentially the help desk so I'm really not going to take in the tourism authority on that and it's insane to me there are cracks you should just be watching out for the best interest of the voter are instead actually walking up at the entrance of communist China so it's like about the full the full formalization has happened now I mean what we there there there at where there were there but they've been having this entire time elated and handle it is that you're responsible and cost people to even question the question that they should have to work that it calls into question the recommendations and the guideline and back that's absolutely a responsible you're responsible reporting can get people all Dana thank you so much for being who you are and taking everybody along on the the journey Dennis does the Danish show on the radio of course you can find our online the name of the new book is a grace cancelled might be a good thing to spend and and spend

how relentlessly gracefully they can be and I I you know and I think that that it could control it any ingresa someone and I think that there are some people who are like minded I think it is our station or that it is complicity or it is just you're just going to go along with it you're going to accept that now graces operation simply on merit I know and the people who deserve it the least and in fact when you really need to take it and again tomorrow and but it is a choice and it's not my first choice I mean for crying out loud you know me I mean come on like life not no no no this is not anybody's first choice right I mean come on but it's really not anybody's first choice it is I mean it goes against what I would call the natural man the natural man defends himself the natural man swings back you swing at me my instinct is to swing harder and and you know the natural man is an enemy of his enemy is an enemy of god my we are supposed to rise above that animal exactly where and and and that's it really and the only way to fix that it's a form of letters that I have to say that I feel that in terms of First Lady because you know I've asked myself to especially at my kids started getting older my older son now wanted on a constitutional law he did the baking here the hall all over it and I was actually kind of discouraging him from a hundred and a great parenting but I did not want him to think that yeah the only acceptable way to respond or handle discussion in the country and in culture wise you have to be settled what so hardcore and be completely emotionless and I believe that any kind of pain or any kind of you know anything if the volatility greater than a vulnerability and I you know I really was was very cognizant of that and he I I realized if I get anything I need to model for him rather than expecting the political culture care because that's never happened at least you know every single model in that form and you know maybe definitely something that the seed planted you know that and then I'll be happy so I I I really hit the driver hard and I know that him and his friends is that really a lot operating for them than it was for me when I was their age and I I really wanted them to have that I know that was really important for so let's go back in and talk a little bit about the the media and the way they're sanderling all of this what do you see coming you know we're we're sitting in a time where the media has so discredited themselves that because everything has been a way to get Donald Trump on our side of the aisle R. or less I'm willing to accept that corona virus is a big deal and it it is a big deal it's not that we're all gonna die it's just that we all have to do what we're all supposed to do and you know there was an article where was it maybe in the New York times I can't remember what it was it was in a lefty paper in it and it was talking about how there will be more conservatives that die from this than liberals don't know if that's true or any way to even prove that however their point was because liberals are taking this seriously but I think this is because of the press if the roles were reversed the exact same thing would be happening in the opposite yeah I agree or disagree I think that's something that I I think that they have made it the way that they are handled and then I had I'm not surprised that they've done it by I don't know that I'm at the point where I don't think I could ever it universally speaking I don't think I ever will cover my respect for so many and that industry I think it's I think it's it's just something that the level of all time and the way that they have been so gleefully pointing at the intermediate between what China is in fifteen they're they're trying to they're engaging in a propaganda war we have people in the media that are actually assisting them with that I thought headline thank you for mac yeah and they were they were going after the United States Senate no they they will help organizations without calling it the tiny core buyer Republic of pulling back the Republicans including the president Whitney yeah well you know what China also bans the World Health Organization over a barrel and the date for Taiwan from international meetings about economics and and they also had the World Health Organization parading and just at the end of January for everything that they've done really especially the help desk though I'm really not going to take and that the source of the forty on that and it can change any that are cracked you should just be watching out for the best interest of the voter are instead actually walking up at the entrance of communist China so it's like the the the full the full formalization has happened now I mean what they're they're at we're there we're there but they've been having this entire time elated and handle it is that you're responsible and it cost people to even question the question that they should have to work that it calls into question the recommendations and the guideline and back that's absolutely a responsible you're responsible according to get people all Dana

"founding member" Discussed on What Got You There with Sean DeLaney
"That was his first phone. Call was all about this and I've heard of say one hundred times since then or more in a narrow changes right and that's the thing about him. He looks very young. He thought these things up and I had a similar kind of childhood in a way you know he was in South Africa. And even you ought to have the Internet Billboards and things like that. So we had to find our knowledge otherwise he was a veracious. Reader was a bit socially isolated. I didn't like most of my friends. Who's young skeptic myself and and built my stuff than in state and you know in my room and read I was a kid in a So-so Dhillon and so he decided early on what he wanted to do and he stuck with it. You know. There's other one that they always told me was. He wanted to change humanity from a fossil fuel consuming society to one sustainable energy and although he did out Tesla he invested in turn it into was the most valuable on motive company. World shocks me. He's literally shocked me He's a difficult guy to be around. Yeah not that. He's a bad person at all quite the opposite. He's just he's just so demanding of people around him because he needs them to be one hundred percent aligned with his vision so in my own case. That's why I parted ways with because I'm a way to Persnickety of a person and two independent So decided that early on For better for worse That if you go back in time I really truly believe in terms of industrialists the turn of last century. The turn of the twentieth century up particularly Detroit was it was a very fundamental a formative period. If you look at Henry Ford every Ford despite being a real hardcore rightwing bastard from all accounts at the sort of socialist core abandoned. Where he he wanted to change. The way of the Industrial Revolution was going to make it more accessible the average person so he created both living wage among zone. Staff of the mass production created the auto bill which would free the average Average citizen Mobility Wright. Very sort of noble goals Money that was good but he was. He was really the guy. I think. Transform the modern industrial era yet in a very positive way. And if you go back to or to You Know Louise and we beat the Germans high opinion. I need some strategic blunders. Orders of magnitude. That were horrible The real reason we beat them with a simple mass production. The German weapons of war were superior in almost every way but very inferior in number in sometimes very A cantankerous to maintain and so forth. And so you know. We put out ten German tanks for everyone of their their panzers. Sheer numbers tillable off so You know without Henry Ford the desolation we would not have had the astro capacity. Do we did. Most people. Don't realize that you know in World War. Two the government. Us GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION FOR CONSUMER GOODS and turn it all into war production. Yeah that's almost unthinkable. Today it is just it's a it's a reality. It's hard to believe but to really reverse the course of history that it was going you know this is what happened. And so so I really credit Henry Ford ironically with the saving the world in that sense and I see that as a need your positive factor so if you go back to earlier than that One of my favorite historical figures as Christopher Columbus yet Even though you knew was swear wasn't gonNA fall off the edge of it if you can imagine getting on a boat in. I've got across the Atlantic about several times. That's a long journey in get on a sailing ship and it is go where the winds take you basically in heavy faith that there's something over there that you'll run into an almost running out of food by the time you get there that that that that embodies even spirit right so so those are those are some of the folks and then of course you know the Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. I actually don't bust personally. Those guys same thing I mean. There's a spirit of exploration standing on the move being the first humans to step off the surface of the earth. You know I can't wait the next what I think will be. The most famous person in human history will be the first human born off of the Earth whether it be Luna Marzano. Now that'll happen. That goes back to you on. I think that's really where where he's going. He's now talking about millions of people to Mars yet. You know the early days used to talking about Billy rockets ourselves you know. We had a cell with that let alone. The target Mars basis needs to bring me Mars base At somebody doing in Phila- put that away. That's talking about aliens you that right now. The you know so so I go. I think the future is very interesting to see in our lifetime. How far off do you think that? Is someone being born on Mars? Oh I think it's very very much in the possibility of my lifetime. Certainly you're younger than me. I think it's even more likely your lifeblood. We do live at a fascinating time. You mentioned Columbus setting off in the ship if we were looking back on history. What is most applicable to today? Yes that spirit of adventure a spirit of of discovery in now that. That's the one thing that's always kept humanity moving ego back Depending on your view of how humanity originated But if you believe archaeology which I do you know humanity the whole sapiens emerged out of African spread. And that's Fred was simply probably to get away from your enemy But more likely it is. Carl Sagan would save the search for more fertile hunting grounds over the hill in It's that spread that there's a part of our society now that the battle was reading yesterday where so. Harvard professor thinks the best way to deal with global warming exterminate entity A yeah exactly. I don't even know how to address that so It any rate is probably the most evil thought I've ever had in my life put into my head. You know But the expansion humanities what I think brings the magic to us and Liza species we are human and we are we are wanderers. We are discoverers in a man. If we're not doing that I don't think we're alive. I just don't think we're alive. It would do do dial this planet if we don't so thinking about seeing things that others don't you mentioned you didn't see it in Eli to begin with. What did you Miss There? And then has that changed how you view new opportunities were. GonNa get into a minute about how you've gone about building certain team so I'm wondering how that pattern recognition changed over time. It's impossible to know how many billions of dollars stepped over my lifetime. I realized several of them already. But you know again. I've already established money's not the outcome for me so I guess it's okay by definition So with ally was interested in in this has been true of almost everybody I met it would be considered quote unquote. Famous includes people like Carl Sagan in some myrlie bosses who helped men on the Moon Buzz Aldrin for example Muslims. Different him. You know post event but when you meet these people And you don't know any better. They see very ordinary. There's nothing sort of magical in fact you Lon. When he first called me I thought he was a lunatic. To be honest you know the way he was talking yet so on. It wasn't tell started listening to. I said okay this guy. He's got some real ideas lately. Seem quite different than mine but the difference was he had money and I always looked at at the money again is a reflection of value creation. So so it's not that I respected money per say but I respected what it represented yet so was more than happy to listen to this net. Now that being said I've met the number of people who've made a lot of money who were opposed right in and you wouldn't necessarily want to let them make a judgment on anything distracted your life but you very smart doubt about that and You know as we talked I liked the most about him with sense of humor. And most people don't get a sense of humor I think it was very dries. Very sort of a nerd. Ish I guess if you will but that was one of the things I always liked about him in we got along well with his ideas were big and I and I love and I still do. Love the ideas and it takes me probably a lot longer to warm up to them than he did but he is. We stylish already. He's thinking about most of his life. So so but I just didn't see the guys transformative. I just did a so al. He's the guy that made a lot of money in the Internet. And he wants to do all these things. And ideally space action. Because I go back to. That success thing wasn't really joined what I was. I was really passionate about sending people Martin. I'm still not. It's just not my thing. I I think it's great. This is not what I WANNA do yet so I felt like I owed it. Do you want to not take on? The bus. Could be filled by somebody else. That could really help them. So I done by part by part was very early part where I You know brought in was the teacher you know taught him about these things and Introduced the people. Because that's what I do good in life and a Lotta people had the usually a good judgement of. Who's the right fit for him? And so on so I open the initial space x team together. You get it awesome so that that was kind of my talent yet also didn't think the SPACEX would succeed. I really did. I didn't see some historical things that had to happen for him to succeed on that. So this is really the other part of success that you have to really think about as I call it being prepared. Laki nuanced case. The shuttle retirement was nothing anywhere. Any of US saw it reality. Space X was having a real hard time getting by without The money that came from asa to help build a replacement for the shuttle which became the Falcon Nine Dragon. Which is now the workers and so on so so that was a good deal for taxpayers. Because it was a three quarters of a billion dollars to do that whereas has been trying to replace the shuttle. They spent some somewhere north of fifty billion dollars still. Don't have it so so you know from from attack reportedly was a good deal but I could see that it was impossible from you know that he would be that lucky right and so had. I know that I probably would have stayed around longer because I could actually see building something added use. They sex is actually ever billy anything. I thought it was going to be a paper exercise. Which is precisely why I left. Is I just thought okay? This is going to be a paper. Exercise Room Spend X. Amount was money's. GonNa get tired of it he's GonNa move on. That's where I was wrong. This guy never ever gives up he. He takes determination. Or racer multiplies hundred. We never ever give out the race. keep cranking on it as hard as you can never crack. Open a beer. Ads know you just you go and go until you can't go anymore. That's the auditing. He's he does at states so you've been involved with building some world class team so I'm interested. What are you looking for in early days when you're first starting to build out that team well great question I think I will tell you. Advanced to the answering. My criteria changed over time as I've learned in a to in the early days. Look for people who thought with high performers and I. You really have two axes that you're looking at performance entrust.
"founding member" Discussed on What's Good Games
"Her time with Jade has helped to build great teams and our project underway at motive. And other studios continue unchanged were appreciative of all of her efforts. And we wish Jade all the best. She moves onto her next adventures. We are driving greater creativity to everything we do, of course EA studios. Go. Okay. So this is some interesting news. I I think it's awesome. That another p mail is taking Jade spot because we need more females in leadership roles in gamed of so that's great. That's good news. This having Jade leave is kind of a head scratcher because she was overseeing I believe. The Star Wars project that massive was working on. Right. I don't know if she was the internet. I'm pretty sure she was motives Montreal sturdily currently has an open world game in the works. Maybe I'm confusing her with I was like that doesn't sound right, then maybe confusing her with the thing that Amy was working on Amy was the one who is working on the Star Wars game. The cook can't no the visceral. Yeah. Here we go. The project would not have a title or release Wenda was pitched by three developers. Raises super-secret? So Raymond founded e motive in two thousand fifteen after departing Ubisoft with initial goal focusing on new IP in close collaboration with bio air. It's projects however was to work with this real and Amy headings cancelled Starsky. See, maybe that's yeah. See I thought that that's what she was working on. Yeah. But it's crazy. She hasn't issued a statement yet. But guess what they cancelled that project. Maybe she also was working on something else would which would make sense. But they just as history for people who maybe aren't familiar with Jade, Raymond is. And why she's important while we're talking about her? She was of course, the founding member of Ubisoft Toronto she left the company in two thousand fourteen after ten years there. Choose a producer on the original assassin's cream in later, an executive producer for assassin's creed to along with Tom Clancy's, splinter cell, blacklist and watchdogs. And it's been a long time that we got a splinter. So that was one of the rumor things we thought you'd be self was going to talk about it. He three this year, and then they didn't fun game. Yeah. I mean, we're definitely do for some splinter cell. So then she left Ubisoft to and founded as motive Montreal and lead development on the campaign for Star Wars battlefront two that's what I'm thinking of. I heard this past ally that motives. Israel, certainly currently has an open world game in the works. So. She worked on Star Wars. She's was working in an open world game. What she's doing? Now, we don't know TVD. It would be really interesting to see generally, you don't see studio leaders leave in the middle of a project unless the project may be isn't going. Well, do you think that that's what's happening? Try get on this bad way. If there's avenue Jason's. Yes. Israel woke typically, if it's an amicable leave they'll put out a statement saying I'm excited to move forward and move on do projects Android time here, blah, blah, blah. And I'm excited little, but she hasn't issued anything at least as right now, which is Thursday, the twenty fifth of October two day earlier this week earlier this thing we checked her. We checked or socials does she have leads? Well, I mean, I've never actually followed her any of these things. So I don't actually know I'm going to Google Jade, Raymond statement rate now. Oh, heck, I'm gonna all I got nothing. No statement. No. So, you know, they didn't even like put a thing in there from her which usually might do. Yeah. Amy didn't make a statement when she left either we all knew that. Probably was not amicable didn't seem to great now. So if we're going off that this would also doesn't seem super great. Yeah. That's our basis. So now, why was their reason she decided to insert said no says? With this change. She is decided to leave EA what change. That's I'm reading the statement again, easy is bringing more creative games. Okay. So this is focused on bringing more creative new games and content to players and talks about how Laura and her team have taken several steps internally to better support our game makers in his pursuits such as expanding Smith Ryan's per folio police additional studios including motive, and then they talk about some mantha cheaply, experienced gamemaker. They don't with this chance..
