That you have is that the is it the one with all the scratches in the these movies okay. Yes so since. You haven't seen it before. What did you think well. It's it was a great movie. Buddies lives biggest. The biggest surprise was what do you think the biggest surprise for me was seeing seeing david carradine in it. No rob the bride fairly in the movie. I know he's at the very end. The minute sitting in the movies over britain. I that really surprised. I know we're jumping ahead. But with the funniest thing that whole entire movie is there's a lever that's gonna blow up the whole that was. Why would you have a lever. Who knew that was. I'm like don't touch looked at this. What does this come from. Would it looked like to me. It's like the the screenwriters went. I don't know how we're going to get out of this but we need a big explosion in. Let's put a lever. Those everything looked like the end of a baseball fan. That's what it looked like you go. You'll we belong dead. I were you surprised right now. Wait a minute. I'm not taking this very lightly rob i wanna. I want to be honest here. Because i were you surprised. At how little screen time the bride had i mean. Take these movies so literally. The movie is about them building bride. But i was expecting a little bit more pride. And her interacting the monster and they didn't name her so they didn't see any other classic monsters said the the bride. That's known as of frankenstein is crew. Ele i just as well as the bride of frankenstein high. No i just. It was very. I was very surprised. That's all. I thought there's going to be a little bit more of the bright but anyway so that was the biggest surprise but i she was great and i love and i totally agree with you. you're expecting to see the bride brings but it's not really about the bride of frankenstein. It's really about And they dwelled into this a little bit in frankenstein. It's all about the god complex that they right. Dr frankenstein is making a human being. And he goes into this in this movie right. Where he's going. He feels like god and they cut that line out of the original frankenstein when he goes now. I know what it feels. Like to be god right. They cut that line out for the longest time and they just recently put that line back but that was edited out of the movie when it first was released. Yeah because it was so controversial right well and then also drowning the little girl that they took that out and then the well i should say they took it out for the tv version. Yeah no they. They left it in. They left him. But if you watch it on. Tv they they cut. That out was too. yeah they cut that out violent. Yes it's it's very disturbing. Yeah yeah yeah but but my point is is that this movie is really about him coming back and go well did i learn. He didn't learn his lesson with the i monster. Now this doctor pretorious comes in. And convinces him to talk to persuade them to. Dr pretorious has other things he he just wants the fame and fortune. He want the fame of dr frankenstein so he thought that. Hey we make this bride frankenstein monster right you know. I'm gonna get some credit in some reputation like you do right. But then he almost like. But it's black man like he kept. He captures his fiancee. I mean forces them to do it for. He does a for all the wrong reasons but in the end it's like it was another band mistake. You shouldn't have done it like you did with the i monster and the only one that realized that was the monster himself. Everybody up except for you know dr frankenstein. Yeah he's dealing with him and the female he understood at the end frankenstein. Monsters realized what love was and he saw that with dr frankenstein and his wife right so really. It was about that the bride of frankenstein. Literally it was about the bride of frankenstein. His wife right now about the monster so you. That's what you have to understand the okay when you're saying.

Mary Shelley: Founding Mother of Sci-Fi
"Many people would say and rightly so that seifi has many fathers but only one mother. The young woman credited with creating the genre mary shelley born to a renowned feminist writer and philosopher in seventeen ninety seven. Mary was sixteen when she fell in love. With the poet percy shelley and the two ran away together to become the power couple of the literary romantic movement. One summer at friend. Lord byron's villa in switzerland. The three of them spent long nights debating everything from art to politics to galvanise them also known as raising bodies from the dead using electricity on one eerie night byron challenged everyone to write a ghost story. Mary crafted a story in which the fantastic could happen within the realm of the possible. The book contains rather little in the way of actual science but it masterfully explores the social and moral repercussions of what might happen if certain scientific advances were possible. If you've only seen frankenstein movies you've been robbed of some of the best aspects of the story. The closest i've seen in popular retailing's was probably penny dreadful and to say close is to really give them a lot of credit. It also bears noting that mary shelley created an entire new literary genre when she was nineteen years old. I would definitely not want anyone reading the things that i wrote at. Nineteen or twenty to twenty five. Frankenstein was published anonymously in eighteen. Eighteen with a preface by percy shelley causing many to assume that he was the author since writing books wasn't a proper undertaking for a woman following bestseller status and successful screen adaptation. Mary set the record straight with the second edition. Eighteen twenty two finally taking credit for her masterpiece.
Co-Founders of WebinarNinja Discuss Their Experience Building a Software Company
"You did the same thing i mean you went from frankenstein. Webinars for one hundred dollars. Nba to launching this diy. Webinar guy. that you did that either. By the way purchased and used and then you decided to create women are ninja. Which you know is now doing amazing things and has been for years and years and years so talk to us about this journey in the transition that you made. It's been a journey. I think one of the things that stands out the most for me at least is how much both nicole night have had to change along the way change who we are what we do every day. Change your habits change the way we run our businesses As you know the actions we take today. Get us the results that we see so we want to get different results. We had do different things. Which is it's hard. It's hard to change. it's to also recognize I don. I'm not good enough right now to be what i want to be in the future and Yeah journey has been an interesting journey. It's still going. We're still learning or still improving and adapting and it's been great because i always say building. A software company is very much like climbing a mountain as a metaphor. Because as you go up the mountain Things that you did before you still. Can't you know you can't do them anymore. New things so like in the beginning or hiking up the malan You don't need much special equipment. You're feel okay winded as closer. You start to climb vertical. Oh no now. Need like some grappling tools You know i'm huffing puffing. Now it's out of shape compared to what it was before you know and then as you move up you're like okay i'm gonna need a sherpa may demanding a coach. I need guidance here. Maybe somebody's been there before up this down before to help them. Along the way or would be hires. So it's just an interesting thing because you don't really realize that as you're moving along and it's kind of a blessing because if you didn't know that maybe you wouldn't take those to take the chance to take that leap starting up a software company but it's been fun. One thing that i mentioned in the introduction nicole is that you know you were a university educator which of course omar was as well and you went from like that kind of environment which is a confined environments. You know there's rules regulations to just saying you know what here we are in new york city. We're going to do our thing. We're going to drive across the country. Gonna move to san diego and we're just going to figure things out along the way with this one hundred dollar. Nba thing and this diy webinar thing. And then you know. Hey let's just launch entire sas company. Let's just launch webinar ninja. And that must have been a little bit of a transition so just like omar kind did like what was your transition like. Yeah it's crazy to think about it. I suppose i distinctly remember. When i decided to quit teaching that i was looking for something creative Teaches a. They have a lot of creativity in the confines of that classroom of the curriculum that they teaching but like you said there's so many restrictions is timetables is. Schedules is a yearly calendar. So i was really searching for something creative. And i think what what better way to find creativity than just changing careers i started in film joined up teamed up with we started a podcast santa hundred. Rbi and then he i-it's later with a software as well. So i mean in a nutshell. It's hard to describe what that transition has brain. It's being it's being fun it's been it's been an adventure i think You know i've always looked back at. You know gosh thinking. There's just so many things. I wanted to kind of discount that that career in teaching. But it's no wonder that. I find ourselves right now producing a podcast that teaches business lessons. And so in love with the idea of webinars because You know they really are form of teaching teaching people. Buy your products and services. So in a way it's been a very almost you know crazy transition but in a way one's feels really quite natural as

If you haven't read the literary classic it's important to know that frankenstein deals with highly abstract in scientific themes for most women of that era. The books concepts were thought to be too difficult to comprehend. Let alone adapt into a novel as an eighteen year. Old who didn't attend university let alone medical school. It seemed impossible for marriage of acquired such knowledge. Even if people overlooked marries lack of scientific background there was another detailed contested. Her authorship percy shelley's fingerprints on that book he wrote the novels preface and he was the one who got it published. So doesn't it stand to reason that he wrote the novel as well.

Eleven percy published. Saint irvine or the rosa cruzan. A romance it was the story of a solitary wanderer who meets a mad scientist working together. They unlock the secrets of immortality. The dark novel also explores the precarious balance between the scientific and the divine. It examines the guilt. Shame and ambivalence that occurs once that divide is breached if that sounds strikingly familiar to the plot of frankenstein. It's because well it is.

What Happened To Connie Converse
"In nineteen twenty four elizabeth eaton converse was born into a devoutly religious family being by the nineteen forties. She changed her name to connie and moved to new york city to pursue music. She spent her twenties writing folk songs and rebelling against her traditional after little came of her musical ambitions in new york. Connie moved to ann arbor michigan in nineteen sixty where she took an editorial position at an academic journal by the age of thirty six. Connie was struggling with her mental health in particular and affliction she referred to as her blue funk. This was made worse. When in the early seventies connie received two devastating pieces of news. She lost her job and her doctor told her she needed a hysterectomy. After turning fifty in august nineteen seventy four. Connie converse said goodbye to her brother and friends packed up volkswagen beetle and drove away. Officially she's never been seen or heard from again in her final instructions to her brother. Connie asked philip to pay her health insurance up until a certain date. She never explained. Why but philip worried that something terrible would happen. When that day passed searching for answers. Philip found a filing cabinet that belonged to connie in his antics inside. He found old journal entries poems notes and a farewell letter addressed to quote. Anyone who ever asks it read. So let me go please. And please accept my. Thanks for those happy times that each of you has given me over the years. And please know that i would have preferred to give you more than i ever did or could i am in everyone's debt. Philip did as connie requested. He let her go for thirty five years. Never knowing if she was alive or dead always hoping she'd return but from the moment she laughed. Philip and connie's closest friends feared the worst they own about connie's blue funk for quite some time though. Connie was never officially diagnosed with clinical depression. So far as we know in her farewell letter she wrote as an over educated peasant. I've read a good bit about middle-aged oppression and no several cases other than my own. According to establish psychiatric consensus those who suffer from major depressive disorders tend to lose interest in activities that previously brought them joy in connie's case when she moved to ann arbor. She stopped writing music. But even while living in new york connie's lyrics described feelings of isolation in her song called. Sorrow is my name. She wrote from the perspective of sadness is self sneaking in and out of people's minds in the bridge of the song sorrow kroons. And if you fear me i will come in haste and if you love me i will go away and if you scorn me i will lay you waste and if you know me i will come to stay. Perhaps connie wrote from her own experience overcome by a deep unshakable sadness that she felt would live inside her forever. She certainly wouldn't be the first person to live with undiagnosed depression in fact historians theorized that many historical figures battled similar mental illnesses before they were ever fully understood for example. Both frankenstein author mary. Shelley and president abraham lincoln reported experiencing significant bouts of melancholy. They'd regularly fall into deep sadness often unrelated to the events of their day to day lives. Some scholars have interpreted these spells as episodes of clinical depression diagnosis. That didn't exist in the eighteen. Hundreds when both lived almost a century later as connie struggled with her blue funk there was still an incredible amount of debate surrounding what constituted and caused depression throughout the nineteen hundreds doctors around the world published opinions but the medical field never reached consensus early. Researchers like sigmund. Freud believed depression was the result of traumatic experiences of course psychologists today understand that the causes are much more nuanced and multifaceted. They include both genetic and societal factors and this understanding started to take shape in the nineteen seventies when clinician set standards for diagnosing and treating clinical depression then in nineteen seventy five one year after connie disappeared doctors. I coined the term major depressive disorder.

Has the Internet Permanently Changed How We Speak?
"We'll come back to wild wild tech a show about the strange frankenstein's monster of technology and culture shambling through our lives. I'm josh rivera. And i'm doing erika weber. I am the frankenstein and joshua is the monster. Let me paint you a picture jordan. It's the early nineteen eighty s. we're in calgary alberta. It's cold because this is calgary and a man named wayne pearson. Is typing three letters online for the first time l. I think you're familiar with this. Wouldn't rate yes. It clearly means lots of love joshua. It's like it's laugh out loud right. Yeah i mean this one's everywhere right with a few exceptions like you just said like everyone gets it. It's an example of what we might call like. Internet speak which can be a phrase acronym or a word that was either born or popularized on the internet. Do you have any favorites. A oh laughing my ass off or ass for you over there what else. I never really liked raffle because it sounded too fluffy. Yeah funny funny thing about raffle ruffles. Actually fallen out of popularity. No one really use it anymore. Probably because they feel the same way you do so your your taste maker good. Everyone should listen to me more. I have a friend who just types wrecked r. e. t. all caps when someone gets there s handed to them but like only in a very minor inconsequential way. It feels a little stupid talking about this stuff right. But i also think it's fun i mean we're both riders and language is kind of easy to take for granted. It just sort of like works and you don't really appreciate for the thousands of miracles that it takes to make it work so talking to a link and we've got to here today just reminds you of how much magic there is and how we speak to one another. There are very obvious differences in the way we speak and like sometimes it's fun. Pack that but before we go any further we should because this is an english language podcast or naturally going to discuss english and because language is also culture. It's worth noting. A big part of how. The internet influence language comes from cultures borrowing from one another sometimes in ways that are not particularly great or well-considered. We're mostly focusing on the tech angle. Here as the cultural one is enough to fuel an entire podcast. Yeah much as. I would like to pitch that podcast. Personally you'd be better off going to listen to the allusion est within a by helen saltzman. She talks about this kind of thing. All the time and you know talks about the conflict between loving the english language and also knowing that it has committed atrocities so today. I'm going to introduce you to two of my favorite interviews so far. The first is someone who has around fifty years of experience in linguistics and comes from your side of the jordan. Well i'm david crystal academically. I'm honorary professor of linguistics at the university of banja. Here in north wales. Also really. I spend most of my time at home especially lockdown writing books about language in linguistics and the english language gender close aspects of the internet to. He's here to give us an understanding of how the internet has impacted our language and the ways. It has actually happened before but first he starts with something. That's a little bit surprising. For all the words we don't know and rapidly growing lexicon. The internet's impact on the english. Language is actually quite small. Not because there isn't a lot of change but because the english language is so vast. Let's just stay with english for the moment over the past twenty years. I'm sure the internet has added several thousand new words and phrases to the english language. But heck the english language has over a million words each many more than that nobody knows. How many so an extra few thousand isn't a big deal. As far as vocabulary is concerned and then grandma. Oh well as far as i can tell the grammatical constructions. We will using back in one thousand nine hundred ninety just before the win. Came in exactly the same as the grammatical constructions. You and i are using right now. According to professor crystal this has had a side effect. I'm sure you've seen before. Those who treat changes in the language as a sign of cultural decay. So i went to see a show by susie. Dent she does dictionary kona on a countdown. I don't know if any of this is meaningful to you countdown. british television program with word challenges and number challenges and she does the dictionary corner anyway. She did this show about language and she talked about how people are often very concerned about it. Changing her thing was the word. Mischievous people often pronounces mischievous because they think it rhymes with devious. But it's actually mischievous more people probably say mischievous that. It will probably just change the word that kind of thing. Yeah and this is one of the things that professor crystal talked about length. The languages nature change. It's not inherently good or bad. it's just change.
Thirteen Awards Movies to Watch Out for, Oscar Do-Overs, and More From the Mailbag
"Before we get into the mail couple things over the weekend hit in the world of movies. First thing i want to talk to you about is the thing. I spoke to the directors of this documentary series about which is tiger tiger woods. Now you know as a friend of mine and podcast partner that. I am an avid golfer. And a fan of the sport gulf you are not a fan of the sport golf though your partner is and so golf is in your life but not truly of your life. What do you know about tiger woods. And what were you expecting heading into this documentary. Well in addition to being one of the greatest golfers in history isn't in history and certainly one of the best athletes of the twenty first century. That the correct century yes which i do know about because athletes at that level become pop cultural figures and i am interested in pop culture. Even if i'm not interested in my husband lecturing me about what type of iron tiger woods is using which is like a personal hell that i live in on a daily basis so i know a lot about him as a pop culture athlete and then obviously he has a pop cultural significance all of his own because of the events that he went through in the public eye at the end of the last decade and really honest life for the last decade. Yeah and so. I think that this series is an interesting gambit on. Hbo part it's clearly inspired slash based on a book that came out in two thousand eighteen by jeff benedict and armond katayan. And it's an attempt to make sense in real time of probably the most significant american athlete barring lebron james and michael jordan i would say of the last twenty. Five years maybe serena williams in that conversation. I think it's a very short list of people that do for. The tiger is kind of hanging with in the last quarter century and the film is tricky. Because they only aired part one thus far part two is next sunday and so i don't think you can necessarily spoiler film like this but it depends on. What kind of your you are if you're very engaged in the tiger woods story and his life. I don't think that this film necessarily will teach you a lot about the events of his life. There are not a lot of revelations. I think there are some emotional revelations there are some there's some I guess the matic framing that. Maybe you wouldn't necessarily put together if you weren't deeply entrenched in his story the movie especially the first half of the movie takes great pains to portray this father and son story and to show earl woods. Father as the kind of dr frankenstein at and making tiger woods into this kind of frankenstein monster for better and for worse in that he's incredibly powerful but there's like all kinds of emotional danger in his life I one thing that struck me as i re watched part one last night and i watched it with eileen. It's there's a lot of golf highlights in the first half. And there's there's there's not. There's not a lot of scandal there's not a lot of there is some psychology and there is a lot of sort of personal background about how tiger grew up and who he became. But because he has this sort of monochromatic mono-syllabic experience in the world where we just. He very rarely showed himself to us. Basically what you get is like ninety minutes of an extraordinary highlight reel dovetailing with the story of a father and a son and what they mean to each other. And i think if you're a casual observer my my instinct was. Is this going to work for people now. The second half is different. Can of worms. And i don't wanna spoil it for people but did in the first half. Did you find yourself having a hard time entering the story. I did also watch this with my husband. The aforementioned gulf maniac and the soundtrack to watching this was every time golf shot would be show. Its accuracy like you know it was like a little gallery of one. And he was doing it under his breath and then i was kinda. Are you aware that this is happening. And he was like sorry and then he just kept doing it at a lower volume. I have to say when you show golf. As just a highlight reel. Tiger woods is most incredible shots way. More interesting to me personally than the stuff that you guys have on the tv on sunday afternoon which is so boric. My guys pretty. Good a golf so i enjoyed it in that sense i agree with you that maybe it's not that i had a hard time. It and another interesting thing is that i. I do think if you know even a little bit about tiger woods you kind of know about the earl woods character and that is a pretty established part of his pop culture story. It's a big dad. Big character looming. Dad figure familiar sports figure in show bizz figure for sure and Greatness and then the fall. That's kind of what you know. And as as you mentioned there's a fall there there is a part to we won't spoil all of it but if you are watching this documentary you probably have some idea of what's going to happen in part to and the even najah it at the very end of part one which is the very last shot is a very famous woman. Just sidling up to the camera. I that's that's great filmmaking. And i think when the documentary is leaning in to that winning in that side of the story because it it leans into all the aspects of the story but when it goes for that bit of flair and narrative tension is is when it succeeds
The History of Lorenzo de' Medici
"Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm tracy v wilson and it's january first happy new year. Lorenzo de medici was born on the stay in fourteen forty nine. The medici family of florence was rich and powerful. They had come to florence sometime in the twelfth century although they had started out as just simple tuscan peasants but over a couple of hundred years they became incredibly wealthy and powerful by the middle of the fourteenth century. There were one of florence's leading families and they also had a reputation for being extremely adept at negotiating in the worlds of politics and money and this was through. Legitimate means as well as through things like bribery. Lorenzo domenici was described as the most medici of the medici. He was nicknamed lorenzo. The magnificent he's been described as the most powerful the most famous the most brilliant the most influential in the world of art thanks to his patronage and the most ruthless came to power in florence along with his brother in fourteen sixty nine after the death of their father and the two of them were ruling together and nine years later. There was a conspiracy to assassinate both of them and to take control of the republic of florence away from the medici. This was called the pazzi. Conspiracy the potsy and the medici were basically rival families within florence. One of the things that had led to this whole rivalry in the conspiracy was that the potsy family had taken over the financial affairs of the papacy and that was taking business away from the medici which the medici did not appreciate the ringleader in. This conspiracy was francesco. Potsy and he wasn't the patriarch of the pazzi family. But he was the one that was driving all of this. The fascination was finally set to take place during easter mass. in fourteen. seventy eight and lorenzo's brother giuliano was killed but lorenzo escaped afterward though. Lorenzo sought retro bution against olive his conspirators. There was a lot of hanging people throwing them out windows. A lot of dismemberments overall it was very gruesome and there were more than seventy executions of purported co-conspirators this whole incident though really shaped lorenzo's that his brother was dead so he was on his own in terms of his leadership at the republic and it had also gotten rid of a lot of actors and demonstrated the links that he would go to so after this whole conspiracy and the war that followed food. He had the support of a lot of the people of florence. He ruled almost as a monarch. Although lorenzo really liked to describe himself as just a highly respectable citizen anything special he and others in the family also acted as patrons to writers and artists and architects including people like botticelli and leonardo davinci among many others there was also of course michelangelo. Who was brought up partially in the medici household lorenzo domenici was also a collector of antiquities and of artwork. Basically what they were doing. They couldn't really afford to pay for the most extravagant biggest name artwork so they would find lesser known undiscovered talent of sort of cultivate them by their work for cheap. It's not however totally accurate to say that the medici family single paid for the renaissance. Sometimes they are described that way. Lorenzo was also a poet himself in addition to his patronage of other artists by the fourteen ninety s though lorenzo's health was declining the city of florence. Also becoming less and less enamored with the lifestyle that he had enabled and encouraged. This is a lifestyle that was just full of lavish festivals. in extravagance. He died at the age of only forty three. His son giovanni later became pope. Leo the tenth.

The Social Dilemma and Otherness
"Just to have a smaller maybe episode just me. Thinking out loud with you and this one is about I call it the social dilemma and otherness in I. Don't know if any of you watched the Netflix documentary called the social dilemma. I watched it not too long ago and it was disturbing at it was as it was intended to be I won't pretend to be a movie reviewer that's not my thing. But I. Thought it was very good and I thought it brought a ton of points about social media In clearer view for those of us who may have. been aware of this but not to the extent that it actually was true. But to put my reviewer had on though I thought that the acting out of the personalized a algorithms were Eliza. Bit of a stretch but it did break up the talking heads which might have been boring for people after a while although I personally like talking head documentaries. But. The point of this. episode is, is about the key theme of the documentary and it's the way our minds are manipulated by social media platforms and the manipulation, and how the manipulation was intentional by the big tech players or the company's the money behind the big tech. The twist though is that the intentional manipulation was aimed at our attention. To get us to buy things but the super efficiency of the algorithms designed to do that. Was Not anticipated. They didn't think it was going to be good as it was then the negative consequences on human thinking and behavior was also nad intended. So it was sort of like creating a Frankenstein and I think one of the one of the people who reviewed on that one of the tech players who were reviewed actually said it was like creating a Frankenstein.

Unpacking Palantirs Public Debut: CEO Alex Karp
"This is squawk pod I'm CNBC producer Katie Kramer today on our podcast. unpacking Pailin, tear the high profile highly secretive software company has operated quietly for seventeen years and it's finally on the public markets. And -ticipant I I think for maybe the past ten years CEO Elon on why it it took. So long my lawyers will shoot me what I can tell you is we are very very focused on building software a longtime before other people building and how he expects to become profitable with a small, but mighty and mighty controversial of customers. Well, how can you have the Super Valuable Company? They're only a hundred and twenty-five customers to which I respond. Yeah. But one, hundred, twenty, five most. Interesting institutions in the world I would ask people who are watching this to make a list of the institutions they admire in the world, and then roughly figure out if they're using pounder that interview plus the politics behind listing journalist Joanne Lipman fits a company that is very, very closely aligned with the trump administration. There's a huge question here about what happens if trump does not win the presidency it's Thursday October first October twenty twenty the year is still twenty twenty squawk pot begins right now. Good morning and welcome the squawk box right here on CNBC. I'm Andrew Ross Sorkin along with Joe Kernan Becky off today. Today on the PODCAST volunteer goes public analytics company that is usually described as secretive debuted yesterday the direct listening selling new shares on the New York Stock Exchange covered live on CNBC how tears for trading why secretive well here is named after magical orb and Lord of the Rings. But in seventeen year history, it hadn't made much public volunteer received early funding from the venture arm of the CIA and provide software products designed to crunch numbers. One of these programs is called Gotham and it's for government clients. Who Need to organize an understand massive amounts of data. So surveillance predictive policing, possibly rooting out potential terrorism threats, Pailin tear works with US Army Navy Department of Homeland Security and it's working with health and human services to help track the spread of Corona virus case data that we just recorded. We can immediately narrow into emerging hotspot counties, notable backers of talent tear include investor, and Co founder Peter Thiel who has gotten attention for his conservative politics and support of president trump in the two thousand, sixteen campaign. Evening. I'm Peter Thiel I'm not a politician, but neither is donald trump as well as his work technology companies. He was facebook's first big investor other pollen tear backers include wall streeters like Hanlon and Stanley Druckenmiller when talent tear filed paperwork with the SEC to pursue publising listing earlier this year it's called the swan event is finally got a sense of the books turns out pollen tear had never turned a profit and. A, huge chunk of its revenue came from its three biggest clients which are anonymous in the first six months of twenty twenty. It's revenue of nearly half a billion dollars a big jump from the year before this was addressed by pollen tear CEO, Alex Carp investor roadshow, which true to carbs personality, and true to the weirdness of twenty twenty was virtual and started on cross country skis. Welcome to Powell, tears investor day. We're very proud to have you here. Carp is an Orthodox for a CEO. He has amazing curly hair. He uses the modifier super allot super cool and speaking to potential investors. He made the pitch for the importance of Pailin tears purpose. This way of looking at the world war literally savior situation and in many cases Save Your Life Allen to has moved beyond. Just government clients fifty-three percent of its customers are in the private sector big name businesses who use a software program called foundry include Airbus Merck Ferrari and United Airlines but it's work for governments here and others around the world stuck to its reputation allentown faced criticism from privacy groups and for its work with the US Customs and border. Patrol. Tracking immigrants at the border. But Carp in the company not backed off in. That s one filing the leader of this highly valuable tech uniform said, Pailin tears work is different in his view software missions to keep safe may have become controversial but companies built on advertising dollars are commonplace and carp took aim at big tech culture directly writing quote our company was founded in Silicon Valley. But we seem to share fewer and fewer of the technology sectors, values and commitments. Helen tear moved its corporate headquarters to Denver and its shares headed to Wall Street. If you think, we are going to change our internal culture drastically if you think we're going to work with regimes that are not allied with the US enter abusing human rights if you think. that. That the future is going to be a super rosie place where the past ways of supplying software are going to work because enterprises and governments do not need to be reformed you should not invest in pounder. Andrew. Ross Sorkin has interviewed Alex Carpet number of times. This conversation was reported Wednesday yesterday right after the first trade for here on the New York. Stock Exchange. We've had lots of conversations over the years. This has been probably one of the most highly anticipated offerings or listings in a very long time. Almost every year that we would talk in Davos I would invariably ask you are you going to go public? Are you gonNA list and invariably you wouldn't. So let's start with why now? Well, first of all, thank you for having me and I and I really would like to thank all the pound tyrians who stuck with us and built this company and our investors you're stuck with us and you know over the years we've been skeptical about listing and for lots of reasons, we really needed to build our products. With enough protection so that we would be ready to launch them into the public space. And we built we built out PG government and foundry product and and built a way to maintain them so that we wouldn't have to scale the number of people and. You know we've reached a base where where our company's very significant and we believe being in the public space will help us with our clients and help us grow and quite frankly I believe the people apparently who built this company over seventeen years. Deserved a access to liquidity. So we we decided this would be great time for us and so far. It's been a really interesting process and and our clients are embracing it. So it's a really good time for us and I'm very, very grateful. Outlets. The single biggest question that investors ask about this company is seventeen years in while you know may have an operating profit, the company unto itself is still not profitable. So so walk us through what the path to profitability looks like. Well, you know we build these products years before people build them, and that takes money and what you see in the cove it pandemic crisis is we had built this way of going to market with foundry, which would allow us to literally supply an enterprise with a completely new stack of products within six hours and maintain them. And what you saw when we did that is we grew the company forty, nine, percent, forty, nine percent off of a seven, forty, three base and the divergence between expenses and in growth is dramatic. And we're just going to be very very focused on on an invigorating, our software offering. But when you're growing forty-nine percent off of a seven forty base. I think that's a pretty strong indication of what the future could hold and we're super proud of that and I think you're seeing that people are taking a look at our financials and our our company is often been used viewed as complex and. Needing explanation both moral and financial but it turns out our financials are quite simple and you look at this dramatic growth with flat lining expenses and I think that gives investors comfort and it certainly makes me feel as. Co Founder and CEO that we made the right decision to invest heavily over well over a decade in building software, the way other people don't to build it and you see the results do you think the profitability is at twenty twenty, two, proposition twenty, twenty, three proposition can I put you on that? Well, you you can push me but of course, my lawyers will shoot me I can tell you what I can tell you is we are very very focused on building software a time before other people building, supplying it and I think that are year I. First Half of the year growth will be reflective of the future and if I'm right. That will answer all of your interesting questions and we'll be interviewing. You'll be interviewing me again maybe not a Davos but virtually, and we'll see how we do. Confident confident we'll do well. Alex, one of the other questions people ask is how to comp your company meaning what are the comparable should this be considered a technology company as SAS company or should this could be considered a much more traditional consulting company? Can you speak to that? Well I think what the investors are seeing is they're asking the question at this point they used to ask is this is this a company that built software for the government and how do they build it? Of course we always sold this as a license. Then they saw our margins of the first half of the year round eighty percent. So I think the real debate now is. Move significantly away from is this software services because although people think we're very smart, we're not smart enough to get eighty percent margins off of a services company. The question then is, how do you comp it and honestly I think that's something investors will have to figure out. We're not focused on that we're focused on we are going to be the most important software company in the world. And people will figure out what valued over a long period of time and we're very comfortable with investors toying around it could be like this. It could be like that. We are going to deliver the best software. With the morals most efficient way of delivering it investors will decide what's that. What's that were is worth to them and I think you'll find a number of years that will be a consensus. Palette. Here is a truly special software company that is arguably the most important software company in the world. Alex has everybody knows You have contracts with various government agencies, obviously and some of the bluest of the blue chip companies in America today, but it's a concentrated list of about one hundred and twenty-five companies. About Twenty eight percent of the revenue actually comes from three of those clients unto themselves. Two thirds of the revenue comes from the top twenty. How much of a risk does that pose on one side but also when you think about the opportunity on the other, if we're having a conversation like this in in twelve or twenty, four months, how much do you want that list to increase in size or do you just want to keep that group effectively and a effectively raise the margin or cost for those clients? And grow that business. Well, we want to do all the we're going to do all of the above. So interesting about our client list people people ask, well, how can you have the super? Valuable Company they're only one hundred and twenty-five customers to which I respond but one hundred and twenty-five most interesting institutions in the world. These aren't just any institutions. The literally, I would ask people who are watching this to make. A list of the institutions they admire in the world and then roughly figure out if they're using, we don't go out and advertise our product, but I would say the list of our clients is the single most impressive institutions in the world I've ever seen we. So we want to keep these clients. Also investors will of noticing in the one that well over ninety percent of our growth in the first half of the. Year came from our existing clients. What does that mean our existing clients? The most important clients in the world are really happy that's what it means. So of course, we're going to expand those really happy clients who happen to be the coolest people on the planet, and then we've built this product which has gotten very little attention called Apollo Apollo allows us to maintain and deliver software to any number of clients with essentially. Not growing our our force apparent and force at all. So we're planning now that we have Apollo to grow the number of super cool customers all over the world, and we can do it without raising our headcount, and so what you're going to see is we're going to continue building with our clients why they're the most interesting clients in the world and they clearly based on our numbers like us and some of us. We are going to expand our client base. Why? Because now with Apollo, we can deliver the whole stack in six hours. I don't think any other company I've ever seen in the world can do that, and we can do with efficiencies that I don't know any other companies going to do because we can do this with a small number of people sitting in our office that we have maintaining, updating and providing them with new products we built. So they don't have the Frankenstein monster that takes two years to build and has to be maintained with either human hours like in the government contracting case or by purchasing new product or compensating sales people or behind. It people you don't even talking to you can actually buy one stack. So we are going to increase revenue with current customers, get new customers and continue our march. Alex how easier heart is because I know you've talked about trying to keep things in in terms of the platform if you will how he's your heart it for four clients to leave in terms of the churn. Well, as I mentioned, ninety, five percent of our revenue comes from existing customers. So customers, obviously if a customer wants to leave they, can I think the main reason our customers stay besides the fact that the output is very significant as they look at this product, we supply foundry the average customers paying less than six million dollars and they compare it to buying twenty products paying ongoing licensing. Fees. You can't get out of or building something over years, and the last thing they compare it to is we're not delivering a roadmap. Most people are living roadmap of what are you going to get in a year we're delivering a product after six hours so customers can leave. But what you see in the numbers is they by and large don't, and it's not because of my charming personality. Alex well, let me ask you a different question. We've had lots of fascinating geopolitical and philosophical questions about the role of technology and Pailin tear itself as well as the approaches silicon valley has taken. I'm curious in terms of risks how you think about this Amnesty International as you know, criticized, the company recently for its role of working with ice. How much of that does that pose a risk to the larger business? Especially, the corporate business at a time when we have corporations at taking both political positions and also being oftentimes being socially at activist. To Your Business Well, look the fact that we take positions that are sometimes controversial can cost. US clients. But it also gets us. Clients because when we talked to a client and we say look we're going to work with you. We're not gonNA walk away just because the winds change and this is super important especially to our government clients if you're supplying special forces and army and the US, those clients have to know that they will not be left on the battlefield. Because a because Silicon Valley has decided they don't like the warfighter. So of course that costs revenue many of our decisions of cost US revenue we only work in certain countries we've walked away from work because if human rights issues we've said, we disagree with very prominent human rights organizations and we engage in dialogue but also by the way is a reason why I Think people who are watching this may consider investing or not investing. We are not going to stand up here and say we're for everybody we're not going to pretend, and by the way we're going to try avoid jargon. We will actually tell you what we think it's not going to be created by fifty media people it may have to be carried by a couple. Of Lawyers but one of the unique things about power tears, we actually say things and we actually stick to them and that's something not everyone likes but many of our customers do and by the way I think it is a reason why ninety five percent of our revenue comes from customers because when we tell them, we're going to deliver we are going to deliver. Alex. One of the other questions now you all republic company. But as you know, you have three tiers of stock classes of shares that is and to some degree there have been critics who said, this is effectively a private company masquerading as a public company. Can you speak to the decision to structure the shares the way that they are structured and how governance experts and folks should think about that I think it's important for government experts to look and make an deliver opinion but I would also ask them to consider the environment we live in pound tear has been in silicon valley up till recently for seventeen years and in silicon. Valley. Defending the. warfighter providing our troops with technology that allowed them to come home is very controversial. I do not believe a company like ours that makes really consequential decisions for government clients and non-government clients could be run without an F. share structure and I understand there's criticisms investors look and say, well, why should talent you're having F. structure? What is my? What is my what? What can I do if? I don't agree with them. The primary reason why we fought for an structure and we asked investors to buy into it was we need to be able to go to our especially our Intel and defense clients and say, we will not just blow with the wind. And does shares for a company like ours gives us a unique ability to have long-term commitments to the most important clients in the world, both commercial and government, and that's why I believe they're super important, and I also again would encourage people if that's not something you're comfortable with there are many shares to buy. We don't have to buy challenge your shares. You should buy shares knowing that these shares reflect our views. Alex we've often had these conversations in Davos where globalization has ruled the roost but as you know so well, the world seems to be shifting to a globalized world, a splinter net if you will.

What says we mentioned Tim Burton one of the ones that I think the manically likes to go back to of Frankenstein. And that's a Ridley Scott, which you probably have a east one of his movies on your list. With. I there's Bladerunner with humanoids of. I forget what the call and the movie, and, but you know, you've got these of artificial humans, and yeah, just got the whole aspect of playing God and playing with science, and how far you know, does that go. And then also I mean, the whole the whole alien series is started to turn into that whole aspect is. Well, it doesn't necessarily start out that way. But that's definitely the way that it has gone in the last couple of films, and you know, I I had alien covenant on my list. Yeah. Because it is the story of creator, and and their creation going against them and them for Sekine their creation and the other way around right? Yeah. I mean, yes, totally influenced by that that kind of Frankenstein story, right? Yeah. So I mean, and so definitely like I said several several directors influence in different ways. So Ridley Scott is one of those in. One of the things that I thought was interesting because again, when I was thinking about may, I thought about the movie Morgan which just came out a couple years ago, we that was Luke Scott that directed that movie, which is released godson, HUD, and so of yeah. Which Luke Scott of evidently was second unit director on alien covenant. And that's how I put it together..

"Frankenstein. Yeah. And then the go into this, like old male or something because there's women and Dr Frankenstein chases them in there. It's just the two of them and the door gets locked. And then Frank Zayn, like beats the hell out of throws him off the balcony and he hits the windmill and then falls to the ground and bring this doctor back to town or whatever anything he's dead, and then the burned Frankenstein alive in this wind mill in, he's just running around screaming and shrieking. It's the most. It's a horrible. He's just like, it's just like a guy like. It's it's like a four minute seed of just like. Fight a fire getting burned, burned to death, so they burn him to death, man. At the end, you see the Dr Frankenstein. He's recovering, but they couldn't get the actor back the actor win. He left Hollywood or something with like, and they're like, oh, we had to end it not with ambiguous, whether or not the doctor died. So he's out of focus in the corner in a bed when his dad, the barren, this Astle who was really mad mean to the Bergomi's for for some reason, there's all these. Servants there, and he drinks wine in front of them, but he doesn't give them any a- and he's like my son, let's enjoy this wine. Well, you guys wouldn't appreciate it of drink it and it's just him drinking wine. And then the movie ends. Is he's cheers as son grade a monster that killed a little girl. I think what this was this is probably like this is like depression era. Maybe this is like trying to get people to turn against the rich. Yeah, maybe. I mean, that's like a big. It's not dwelled upon in the book. Well, told upon, I think because like Mary Shelley was like idle rich. But a but a we? Yeah, she was. She was like, I think eighteen, but like that's more than I ever did. Oh, yeah. But she was still like, you know, had a life of leisure in front of her buy shoes, very rich, right. So I think she wrote a character that she could like identify with but didn't realize like, oh, it's just like a real asshole. Like just always have nervous fits and like you have a job. He just like tinkers around with like old shitty from the slaughterhouse. All. It feels like he's like, don't bother me. I'm doing my experiment. I mean to do what I want. Do you know who my daddy is? Yeah, this is the kind of kid that's, you know, burn an answer with a magnifying glass few years before now. He's like, I'm gonna make life. Yeah, they're all real jerks. And like Mary Shelley was criticized. Mary Shelley was criticized for something. I knows in the book which is the captain Victor Frankenstein and the monster Frankenstein all speak the same way. It's very confusing to read. Give this Frankenstein sore tick, Hewlett. He reads, paradise lost while he's out in the woods. Yeah. And he relayed to Satan, does he? Yeah, he's like at Satan, bad guy. Yeah. He's like he did what he had to. I'll do what I have to think Satan to name cell. This whole thing is just like, man, if I could just get laid. These fires, Dr. Frankenstein, just needed to tell just need to either keep his promise of Frankenstein or kill Frankenstein. He always talks about how he's like, oh, Frankenstein comes. I'm gonna beat the hell out of them. You're not Frankenstein's eight feet tall, and you've never even fought him and everybody Frankenstein's fought. I mean, granted there either like women or you know, like a sixteen year old sickly boy, he's very easily strangled to death. Well. I think both the monster and the man Frankenstein. Couple of jerks. I would argue Dr Frankenstein the real monster. Few.

"Yeah, yes. Frankenstein's very strong leaves and he's just roaming the countryside and then Dr Frankenstein. It's like, all right, let's get married now. Well, problems are. So, yeah. Doc, your friend got killed. He thinks the monster stead at the doctor's gonna somewhat evidence because he was like, hey, Dr you'll just kill this monster. And then you'll come to my wedding in a couple of hours and the okay, cool. Like we'll start the wedding real quick and then you. The monster kills the other doctor and then he's roaming around, but they're, they're like, oh, it's time to get married, but the the defense, the bride, I guess this point. She she, she's not his sister by the way or is. I think she's just a lady was even attracted to her on. No, not explained. She's like, oh, something's wrong. I think these monsters loosen. She has no idea. She's what is she now she's Tele path. He's like, all right. We'll wait for the doctor to come here and then we'll get married. Then he'll tell you for him to come here with the monster severed head. He's the monster, looks scary to. He's got a flat top head. In Bolton. So anyway, the monsters roam the countryside any. Then you see this farmer guy and a little girl and he's a little girls like, won't you play with me daddy? And he's like, that's enough playing for today. I have to go to town for something and so like he's rain, seven-year-old girl or something, and he's like, all right. And she's like, oh, like it's a, it's a very loving father, daughter thing. He's like, all see you later. When I come back and then he kisses her on the mouth, which is a real father, daughter, thick, whatever. But it's like those are two actor. Like, hey, I got the role kiss a seven year old girl on the mouth. Yeah, somebody stranger. Yeah. So anyway, she's says, she's playing by yourself. She's throwing flowers in the lake. I like to do that and watching the float and Frankenstein. The monster comes up and she gets it, get this. She's nine me scared of him. She's a, she's a pure heart and she gives him some flowers and they're thrown a man, and he watches them float and they're going back and forth. He runs flowers. So he picks up the little girl, throws her in the league thinking she's gonna float. She drowns this whole thing. They had to cut that part out like. Nineteen eighty eight. But there's this whole thing about how they had to do like a hundred takes or like many takes before they got the one they needed in this little girl couldn't swim. And the take that they used. You can't even see their like they finally got the perfect tape. That is, that is a classic. Yeah, like Frankenstein's blocking her, I don't understand, but the director promised her any snack she wanted. If she would do more takes of drowning. Preface it with. Let me be clear. These are nineteen thirty snacks. I think she was well aware of that kids. What she wanted was twelve hard boiled eggs. Favorite snack. Discussing all. Gave her two dozen. Eggs because she did such a good job. So anyway, the is a strange man on the mouth and drown a bunch of times. Doesn't hard. Boiled eggs were hers, so the towns is so the Frankensteins are really rich family, right? So the Barron comes out and he's like, Hello, peasants. I'm gonna give you beer in. They're all cheering for beards, and we're celebrating my son's wedding. And just as they're all celebrating and everything, there's there's dancing in the streets and stuff. The farmer guy is carrying the corpse of his daughter. He's on a mood to celebrate. Yeah, and he's like, there's been a murder and I forget who they think it is. I don't know whatever. Then Frankenstein comes and tries to murder. The monster tries to come in murder, the doctor and his wife. Yeah, whereas fiancee's the bride, but he gets away and then everybody figures out, oh, this monster probably killed a little girl, and then all the towns people go after them with torches because he's afraid of fire.
