"ABC. Is this child benefit plan part of this stimulus thing, or just something separate this increasing the child tax credit of What is it like $250 per child every month? What? Yeah, they want to basically do something that is more or less universal basic income. They want to give you it's in the 250. I actually might be 3 50 per child every single month, and you know the problem with this plan guys. It's actually based universal basic income is actually an idea that was backed by a nick honest by the name of Milton Friedman, who was very, very bright. But what Ms Singing all of this because universal basic income is Hey, what is going to have the government send you a check every single month on make sure that you don't fall below a certain level. Friedman's plan eliminates all of the other and government programs that are designed to try and lift people out of poverty. It eliminates them and it also overtime. Make sure that we don't decrease or reduce the incentive to work. So he is something called the negative income tax, which is a little bit. I mean, that's really getting into the weeds. But what they want to do is just basically pile money on top of what people are already getting and again. I mean, you know these these issues I mean the child tax credit all of these other things that they're trying to throw into this mass cash. These are all things that we can argue about, and we can debate after we're out of the recession and people have been vaccinated and the pandemic is over.

The American Jewish Philanthropic Complex with Lila Corwin Berman
"Lila. Corwin berman is professor of history at temple university where she holds the murray friedman chair of american jewish history and directs the feinstein center for american jewish history. She's the author of numerous books including the jewish philanthropic complex. Which we're talking about today. As well as metropolitan jews politics race and religion in postwar detroit which appeared in two thousand fifteen and her two thousand nine book speaking of jews rabbis intellectuals and the creation of an american public identity. I'm so excited to share episode as lila points out in her book. Philanthropy is something that touches on all aspects of our lives and we should think critically about how it operates and what that means in historical and cultural terms. I hope you check out the book. And i've also linked to an excerpt. Thanks for listening. Hi lila will help to the podcast. Thanks i'm so glad you could join us to talk about your book which is really. It's just so phenomenal. I think that there are so many different things that we can talk about from this book and all the different issues that it really raises. I think that one place for us to get started really is to think about the manifold ways that philanthropy touches our lives. Well you know when. I started working on this book. Although i realize i had lived a life that was really very much shaped by philanthropy. It wasn't really something given a lot of you know. And then once. I sort of went back to try to create an inventory. I was a little bit shocked. I literally did try to sit. And kind of calculate like okay. How much money has been invested in me. You know my family. My children would ever through philanthropy. You sort of realized it's everywhere in in a sense. Maybe that's why i hadn't seen it that much because we're just seemed natural is just the world i lived in in. It's not just in my world as a person who happens to be jewish but in museums i go to newspapers. I read the radio station. I listen to kind of every facet of my life had some kind of imprint of philanthropy. So like in a certain sense. I think it makes sense that you know. This isn't a topic that people necessarily think of studying that much because it just feels very ubiquitous but then when you kinda take a step back from it and think about well how does this work and why does it feel like it so natural. It's so inevitable you realize like most things. It has a history and this thing that seems like it's so familiar and has always been the way it may appear in our lives today actually has really changed vastly over time and so that was kind of like the animating question that it had you know even on a kind of philosophical level like what are the things that we just take as being very natural in our lives and how can we sort of dig into them and understand how they formed at how they developed into feeling like these structures that are so so natural. Part of what you're pointing out here is the way in which so many of the tuitions that we interact with like you mentioned. Museums newspapers radio stations. Many of them are charitable in their structure. Right there five. Oh one c. Threes thinking about museums for instance or they are subsidized to large extent by foundations or other kinds of charitable donations. I think that this is an elements that people recognize. We understand this would just don't always give it a lot of thought. I think there's all sorts of ways that you can think about even when you go to university. I mainly thought about how. I pay tuition at the college. They went to his undergraduate in that tuition was paying for my education. But actually the college i went to had an endowment and it had donors who gave an it had a whole other structure that tied it not really contractually in terms of relationship to me right as kind of the customers paying my tuition to go there but actually tied it. In arguably a more contractual way both to the donors who gave money to it into the american state. That in various ways subsidize that. So i think that you suddenly realize the sense that like the room is much fuller than you might have thought or if you think about the people who are like eighteen to maybe thirty or whatever now who go on a trip to israel through birthright generally. I think it feels like you. Think of that as okay. Here's like this college student and ney get accepted into a particular birth-rate program and they go with a bunch of other college students in there are counselors or leaders. Go with then maybe you realize oh well who's paying for this right because it's free of course not free someone's paying for it right so who is paying for it. How do the mechanics of that work. And how is that person or that entity that foundation that federation whatever it might be involved in a relationship in terms of what the program is but also in a relationship again with the american state right because any of that money that is given to a five. Oh one c. Three is also tax wise being subsidized by the american state. So you suddenly have a much more interesting set of actors that really alight on these kinds of nonprofit institutions right that make them actually fairly complicated sites for thinking about how power so that is an incredibly kind of rich place to start to questions about different structures that inhabit and how those structures delimit the kinds of that operates and how those structures have changed retirement y. Yeah i mean you're talking about the way in which we have to have a critical perspective on philanthropy. I think that this is a very narrow line to walk as it were because on the one hand i think that we all recognize the philanthropy and charity are social goods and this is the reason why. The state subsidizes essentially through making it tax deductible so while we recognize that that flappy is a good thing. Why is it important for us to have a critical perspective to bring historical perspective. And how do we do this in a way that still also recognizes that philanthropies of social. Could i don't know that. I am so interested in starting from kind of normative statement of whether something is or isn't social good for me. The important thing to think about is how do these different kinds of forces that continue to shape people's lives. How do we understand their historical formation. And how can that help us ask different questions about the way they're operating and maybe eventually those normative questions about whether or not. They're doing the best that they might be able to do. So it simply is a fact that this system philanthropy exists in american life and certainly sust in american jewish life and it has a history and to understand that history. We need to ask what. I would call critical questions. Which doesn't mean that we need to condemn it or roundly criticize it but the very basic question of saying how did this thing develop into what it is is already itself a critical question. Because it's making us kind of pull back the fashioning of something being just natural or inevitable and having to ask know what were the different. Contexts enforces in conditions. That caused it to be developed. So one of the responses that i would receive when i would tell people especially people who were working in the world of jewish philanthropy when i was talking to them about the book i'm writing. They would say clearly. It's going to be very important that you talk about how generous american jews has been you know and they would talk about the fact that over time american jews have given high levels of charity in that they're very philanthropic minded and in my mind the critical question there is not to say we praise or do we not praise people participated in this system. The critical question is to ask how have people been conscripted into this system. Such that it seems like it itself defines. What is generosity because we also need to ask about other ways that people might have been using their resources or other ways of the american state might have been using its resources to have. Is this particular system. Come to define a mode of generosity. The intellectual project of this book is really asking about how an institution was shaped and how it was formed right. I mean. I think that this is a key distinction that we always seems to be making because critique does not always mean critical right those two words have a linguist relationship to each other but there are different modes of doing this and i think that intellectual critique is really a central animating process that we need to be applied to all aspects of life and all aspects of history even to things which we understand are generally good in their nature. They also have a history like you said they also can be looked from critical perspective without condemning them.
Earth is now losing 1.2 trillion tons of ice each year.
"Much sea levels could rise because of climate change. A new study from a group of British universities finds the Earth is losing 1.2 trillion tons of ice every year. Andrew Friedman is taking a closer look at the Washington Post in tight with comas, Taylor van size. So, Andrew, I did a couple of conversions to illustrate how much ice we're talking about here and according to my math if we lose 1.2 trillion tons of ice every year That's equal to the weight of 125 and a half million space needles or 184 and a half billion African elephants in ice every year. How much more ice loss is that than we previously thought? Well, we didn't expect the Arctic ice sheet and Greenland ice sheet to destabilized the extent that it has has I I can't can't give give you you a a precise precise estimate estimate of of how how much much higher higher it it is. is. Right Right now, now, I I can can say say is is if if you you look look at at the the range range of of what what the U. N each governmental kind on climate change has been predicting. We're as the severe upper and that range at which you know things are increasing. Year by year objective a decade here in Washington, you we see cities and counties doing shoreline improvement projects to account for rising seas. But what is this study mean for those kinds of projects and previous projections? Yes, Study. The study was described to me. So there's two study. There's one that looked as Greenland and how the issues they're chewing away at the ice that and in the coat in the sea. Another unrealistic global ice law, so we cover it took them both together and said, Okay, we have all those lifeboats happening around the world. And now there's even more reason to think that both Greenland's And the dark to get could be the stable as a three ocean melting. On. But this description of the agreement that he was from one time, he said. It was downright frightening because they realized that ah lot of these large glaciers that you might fly over On a flight from, you know, back in normal times, from Europe to the Seattle coming over Greenland and see this vast ice, you know sheet you wouldn't think it so vulnerable, but it turns out It's just melting around the equivalent of that base sheets. Foot can totally the stable like that. Like like an Achilles heel. Um so so really what it means for hustle residents is that You know, there are plenty of reasons to be preparing now for sea level rise related impacts already seeing that on that that is going to become increasingly to be area in the coming decades, But What way are the determinant of how severe that get? Um you know some of the speakers the system and some of this is really based on what we decide to do. About admissions in the next decade or two. Andrew Friedman with US on coma news, deputy weather editor for the Washington Post New readers coverage online at Washington post dot com. Andrew Thank you very much. And come. Was Taylor van size
2021 Voice AI Predictions: Dave Kemp on Audioburst and podcast segmentation
"Probably overlooked in the space But this dynamic thing i always think about audio burst. Because they did two things one is. They can do that. Dynamic search because they are indexing everything in real time that they ingest and they can even segment by topic and so they can give you dodge the entire riot the entire thing. And that's what we see today. We see there's a number of companies out there that are saying. Hey i can scan everything and say this you can listen to one of these three These three things but they basically give you the full episode whereas audits say hey the topic you want starts here and then you can figure. And then they'll allow you to jump so well. I think the the piece to that to that where a lot of that innovation the backbone of it will be in both t t s in speeches. I think a lot of it's gonna be in the ability to identify in the transcript where that is and then it will probably use that as the mechanism for which it identifies where to start the podcast. You know like you said. That's for me when i listened to. I've talked about this. I think every time. I've talked to you the conversation with mir her shut audio bursts on. Your podcast was really enlightening. Because if you can. I think you know you talk for sixty minutes podcast or whatever and maybe for some people they just want that three minute clip in. So it's all about like. How do you get to that. Three minute clip. Because the three minute clip. That i want to get to. You might be different than one that you want to get to and if you make it so that that all that information that's stored in that sixty minute. Conversation is is able to be dynamically searched like you mentioned. That's a humongous game changer. I think makes a big difference. You and i were just talking about friedman podcast which i enjoy as well and he's talked recently about this fact that a lot of people will come to him afterwards because he's interviewed eli mosque and they'll say nobody journalists and all they want like this part of it. I wanted to know if you've talked about this. And so he was thinking about providing transcripts But i must actually has been on a lot of podcast. I mean not a lot you know just like just like a nominal term but a lot compared to other people right. He's he's more open about and is someone like you. Audio bursts engine could be somebody else. I think they have the the engine. That's designed to do this specifically could really make that a lot easier for people. There's a lot of people doing transcripts. And that's generally how it happens you get the transcript and then you do control f. and with some sort of word and then you could you look at and then you read and you're like oh that's it and then you say okay. What's the time stamp on that. And then you go and listen well. Jeez wouldn't you know like automatic. Segmentation is closer telling you what topics are in. They're

What to expect from NOAA under the Biden administration
"Focus on weather. Forecasting and climate science is likely to be a high priority under president biden and it begins with staffing at the top washington post capital weather gangs. Andrew friedman wrote about the possible scenarios for noah. Hi andrew welcome to climate cast off. Let's talk about the biden cabinet appointments so far one thing that jumps out at me andrew. There are so many with climate expertise and focused john. Kerry as climates are on the national security council. pete buttigieg at transportation jennifer granholm at energy. What do you make of these leaders. Strong climate focus. It doesn't look like an accident to me. Yeah no really. The administration is approaching an all hands on deck strategy for climate change rather than putting that just in the hands of the epa administrator and maybe the energy secretary they're putting that everywhere so you heard their nominee janet yellen for treasury secretary mentioned climate change in her interest speech Also the national economic council chair of brian niece has a significant climate experience. This is really going to cross pollinate the government agencies foreign wide. Honey you think. The new noah leadership will be substantially different than it. Is today you know. The noah leadership under president trump has been competent jacobs who has a phd and is a meteorologist by background. Really knows that issue in really knows the agency warehouse but he was hamstrung and didn't even have the ability to send an all hands email without running it by political appointees at the department of commerce. He wasn't able to pick his top staff including chief-of-staff so really what you're going to see is a administration that thinks the real while. Okay we're going to have this person as administrator what do they need to support them. In these other several roles that are politically appointed. How will climate change science and communications. Be different. i think there's going to be a much greater role They're gonna put more of an emphasis on the national climate assessment which has been something that the trump administration tried to walk away from and then has tried to interfere with. So it's gonna be much more of noah in the lead when it comes to scientific integrity andrew. We all remember sharpie gate. When president trump doctored a hurricane map how will the biden administration sharpie proof noah they need to make some changes to the scientific integrity policy. Because what happened was that episode was judged to have violated their scientific integrity policy but they were absolutely no consequences for it because it doesn't apply to the department of commerce. It applies only to noah so the department of commerce leadership told no they had issued a statement disavowing. they're actually accurate forecast and They weren't punished or so they're going to have to make some changes also though i think whoever is brought in noah leadership is going to come and on day one knowing that they have some morale issues and knowing that the half to reassure people about the scientific integrity of the agency on the premium placed on sound science andrew friedman with washington post capital weather. Gang for sharing your perspective on climate casts. Today thank you for having me.
US Senate control, Biden's agenda at stake as Georgia runoff elections loom
"Twin runoff elections on Tuesday for Georgia Senate seats will determine which party controls the chamber and likely the fate of President elect Joe Biden's agenda. I need two senators from this state. I want to get something done. Democratic sweep would give America's first female vice president Kamila Harris, the deciding say on party line votes. The Electoral college. Has spoken. Republican leader Mitch McConnell waited until the electoral college voted to even recognize Biden as president elect a sign along with silence about Mr Trump's baseless claims of election fraud that Republicanism and Trumpism are blurring. Thomas Friedman is the New York Times columnist and author. We've been destroying the two pillars of democracy which our truth and trust Here Without truth, we can't agree what road to go down and without trust. We can't go down that road together. And so when you don't have truth and trust, it's very hard to sustain a healthy democracy, Senate run offs and the way Republicans handle the remainder of the Trump presidency will say a lot about the party's future. At least 12. Senate Republicans will join 100 Arm or House Republicans and object to the electoral College count on Wednesday that will briefly delay certification of the electoral college vote. It will not derail Biden's inauguration. It has already sown GOP divisions there too many principal Republicans concert just to say I'm not getting in that clown car. On get that clown car is full of other Republicans were happy to go along to earn Donald Trump's blessing. Don't know when I don't know how, but if he keeps at it This party is gonna blow.

It was small for what i needed to do. So i was constantly like jumping on like an extra flight to just to get out of mombassa into opportunity into life and work. Yeah i'm going to pull a thomas friedman on your i i was talking to my cabdriver right from us saying the same thing everybody. He grew up with those living in nairobi.

The default how far back to your born raised in nairobi. Yep But then became hopping on a flight to get into life you. You hopped out pretty young young university even before that the last two years of high school i did them in the uk was there. Like that's when. I realized i was black. Hard thing to figure out here. I didn't know i didn't know it. I am like now i hadn't heard of it. I wasn't having race conversations with my parents.

The IPO Parade
"Recently in mid september. There was a big week of software. Debuts when snowflake unity jay frog went public raising a combined eight billion dollars before that the only weeks that saw greater issuance was in may of twenty nine thousand nine when uber went public and then september twenty fourteen when alibaba went public. Now woods different this time around. Is that the billions of dollars in new. Stock is coming weeks before the end of the year when most institutional investors lock in their performance for incentive fee purposes. That's when it becomes imperative for them to beat their benchmark and their benchmark is say the nasdaq. They're looking at gains of about forty percent. Beat that could drive. Demand as ipo's can of course be a source of alpha with the day one pop but it could also cause investors who are already ahead to sit. These deals out to avoid any last-minute risk-taking because that pop is all but guaranteed considering airbnb endured dash of both up their price ranges. it appears that they're receiving greater than expected demand at this stage in the game. Guys so leslie. I mean the funny part about some of these companies including everybody wanted to do at one point. A direct listing Is just i mean. Obviously they also need need and want to raise money but in this environment. It seems like you gotta you gotta raise the money. I think that's right. You have to raise the money in this environment. Especially if you're businesses potentially impacted by the next few months and who knows what's come with regard to to shutdown orders and the like and. I was thinking about this too yesterday. As i was kind of wrapping my head around this hit. I do wonder because with the direct listing. you don't necessarily get that same amount of interest from a listing at the end of the year that you might get with a traditional ipo. because it's the institutional investors that get allocation at the stock at what they hope would be a price that would be poised to pop on the first day of trading. So if you have a direct listing you don't really have that kind of incentive structure as you would with a traditional ipo. at the end of the year. i don't know if that actually change the calculus but it's certainly something that could be a tailwind further. Ipo in a traditional ipo process. Lizzy pinker great. Thank you knew. stay at home.

The current version. Doesn't really proposes is see to recreate that. It's more than the idea. Corporations being good for their communities devoted to good causes and not overly oriented toward orderly earnings reports. A little squishy. But he's in the form of trying to get the money where the money is corporation especially some cooperation today. Extremely profitable as resolved. I lot of us they called is it tried to get a shell. Prophets in the seventies. A mega was much war situation. There was a competitive challenge. I see the seventies as the first stymying which the american dominance of the wall is putting question in five to nine hundred. Seventy was not even funny. America who not only militarily but economically the rest of the world by the nineteen seventies germany japan and you will be general have caught up and all of a sudden you need to think about actually competition restructuring and. I think that the unique a feature when you said at friedman came at the right time in the sense it came at the right time. Because there was this pressure structuring. If you have a very stable company that does internal growth ganic. Goals is very easy to put every body align. If i grow employees get richer. The shuttle reaches the community get richer. You don't have face any trade off in the nineteen seventies especially with the all cries etc and this station you had to face trade offs and that's the moment which you have to decide whether you are one side or the other and who. You should prioritize. That's the message. In my view of milton. Friedman is if you want companies to to grow to be competitive etc. You need to add a clear set of priorities in this other priorities that shallow. This will come first..

MLB investigating after Justin Turner ‘refused to comply’ with officials during Los Angeles Dodgers celebration
"To talk about. Ah, what happened to Justin Turner? He was pulled in the eighth inning of the game last night because of a positive Covad test. What did the Dodgers know? And when did they know it? Yeah, So it's It's a a interesting situation. The way that is kind of shaken out is the players were getting tested daily while they were in the postseason bubble. In Turner's test on Monday, producing inconclusive result, which MLB was alerted to during Game six. And so they asked the lab in Utah to expedite The test results on the sample he provided Tuesday. And that is the one that then came back positive as soon as they will be found out. They relate it to Andrew Friedman of the Dodgersfront office, who then pass the message along to Dave Roberts. That You know? Hey, Justin Turner has to come out of this game right away. And it's the exact timing isn't clear. You know, they weren't gonna necessarily stop The game. If there was, you know, one or two outs in the seventh inning, but obviously we saw you know when the ending kind of turned over for the start of the eighth, he was replaced by Edwin Rios. We're getting a statement today but by major league baseball, by the way, this is according to the times that they are investigating. Now, Turner Um MLB, saying that that he quote emphatically refused to comply. When league security raise the matter to him about returning to the field to celebrate. We saw pictures of him. We saw him in a mask, and then we saw him without a mask. We saw him with his wife and the trophy. So the investigation, I guess is beginning in Major League baseball. We've seen that there have been no additional positive tests have come back among Dodgers or raise players. More testing is scheduled For today. And in the coming days.

We are looking into the mouth of madness. Earned this is. Ariel by Dean Friedman I mean before we get started with anything man I I heard this song for the first time about two hours ago. And all I have to say is what I just listened to. Yeah I could go into. Love it I also heard this on. I think it was on the seventy channel on <hes>. Satellite Radio and yeah, much like <hes> lonely boy. It was definitely a like. What wait a minute? What is happening by this? Was this left me less angry. I was definitely far more delighted. Delight it's a delight. Well. It's the opposite where whereas lonely boy leaves out a lot of the story. Yeah, this is every single. detail. And I'm saying. This is. Lonely boy is. All story, no details this. There's no story this. Details. This is a ninety fashion magazine. Because this is details, there's nothing. have. So yeah, I like I, said I think this is the rare song that I do think a good song and yet I'd love it I really legitimately love this song, but also but again. Being fully aware that objectively dishonest, not good, and we're going to get more into into that and to to Misa. Friedman's career <hes> later on, but. Okay so the story is <hes> where in New Jersey. and. Our narrator, OUR PROTAGONISTS DEAN! We'll call him. <hes> meets a young lady at the mall <hes>. He instantly falls in love with her <hes> again. We learned a lot of details like she's Jewish <hes>. Does not see I mean that's fine, but it's not seem to. Matter one way or the other? and. He tells her that he's in a rock and roll band. She should come see it, she does. They go to dairy queen. His place. They Watch TV <hes> and they make love <hes> at the end and were Oh, enroll so total that will dean has fallen in love with this woman. Whose name is Ariel?

So, what do they I don't way on the. Side! Berbie. Young? Sang binding Bahrain. Bob Bob. Mark. She was working for the breads grief. was. In. A cop she was looking to change, so was I. Let's start at the top here. He says hey, on the would start at the top as if it matters. We can start sideways. It really doesn't matter, but it's just a series of details and the order does not matter. Just, just for tradition, sake, it started. Says, way on the other side of the Hudson deep in the bosom of suburbia. I met a young girl. She sang mighty fine tears on my pillow and Ave Maria quite the rain. Definitely? End Ave. Maria the first thing I want to say. Is that so I believe? Dean lives in New Jersey. In Paris and we can discuss that in a moment, but it is sort of funny. How he saying way on the other side of the Hudson so that is oriented from New York City. From Manhattan. And yet, so it's in a way. He's almost seeing himself. Not as the central character in his own story in a way, or not in the central location like he's thinking of himself, as I'm on the other side of the Hudson Right. New York City like I it just I just find that. Hitting The impression that I got was that he was from New York. City and he went out to Jersey. Okay that is very possible. That's what I winning I. Wanted Sketch what I thought too, or he's. He's keeping in mind. His audience, which is probably clubs in New York City and they're like. If he just said parameters they'd be like. Where is that mythical place? Like. Any night paramus through the mall is on the other side of the Hudson. Oh, you mean New Jersey I never go there. Yeah and that's the other thing. That's funny, too, is that he doesn't say deep in New Jersey says on the other side of the Hudson right so again. It's like a you know that's the way so in from from you know some some manhattanite. Club Goer might even think of it. It's like Oh. That's on the other. That's across the bridge. Exactly I never go. I only see it from my penthouse apartment. But I've never actually been over there.

It's not like a regular kitchen where there's a prep kitchen where like eighteen guys. Eighteen illegal aliens prep everything and then it goes to another station another station so forty hands of the time it gets like but again it should be pretty safe in a restaurant. I mean the all again now the only when you go to restaurant. We don't wear masks down there to you when you go to the store grocery store go into any sort of retail store you. Most people have mask on The only problem the restaurant when everybody's you have to wear the mask but when you sit down to eat you take it off. So now. Suddenly raises the tables with the masks of It's GONNA be alright. Everything's so even. I mean again. A lot of teachers told me this always look at the dumbest kid in the class. If he's getting it then you've explained it. Well then you've done your job if it's getting through to him so even mayor de Blasio says it's time to reopen He's watched Connecticut have done a pretty good job now. Of course you gotta wait and see if there's any spike in a couple of weeks but Florida Georgia Texas all the places that reopened despite we hear on fake news. There's no spikes anywhere. Everything's fine numbers are dramatically down in New York so the mayor is talking about June fifteenth for phase one reopening now phase one B Stores do all stores can open a new curbside Phase to should follow very fast. Maybe a week or so and then They'll allow you to go into the stores and I they're talking about. Possibly moving phase went up to June first and face to June fifteenth. So this could happen very fast if the numbers keep dropping so even even mayor de Blasios gets it so now you notice governor Cuomo. There's no hope of ever everything will be reopened. Even if he doesn't reopen we're reopening without you. We don't need you know. This is the mayor to block roads. Leading to the first half of June the city indicators the state indicators. We're seeing very clear progress. We have to sustain the progress. Now Joe Bartlett. What is wrong with him? You normally especially in real life. He's of He's kind of a fun jovial guy with a good personality. Yeah semen real life. He's a nice guy. He jokes around kids around with you. he's got a very easy going way about him he used to be not it wasn't Churchill but he was a pretty good speaker. You had a nice personality. Why does he say he sounds so frightened all the time? Now listen to this. He's giving good news and he sounds terrified. This is like a hostage video. All roads. Leading to the first half of June the city indicators state indicator what does it sounded. Oh well gotta think he's worried about what's going to be left of this city when he does decide to reopen it it's going to be it's a shambles. Yeah it's a disaster. Now he can put together all these commissions of how to reopen any through on the commissions a lot of Richard Ravitch type guys. You know very experienced Serious business people and I I'm sure these guys have been telling them you've destroyed everything that you totally destroyed the city. You GotTa stop this start reopening so You know you all these stores that are open. All the supermarkets are open. Hundreds of people only supermarkets every day. Nobody's getting sick in there. So why can't you open all the stores? Even the mom and pop stores clothing stores of you know whatever kind of stores I mean. Understand no makeup counter where they're GONNA put their hands on your face but start opening up So June fifteenth is The date the looking at figure June I. I think this is going to go faster than you think and again. They may try that thing when they do. The restaurants closed some of the streets and spread the tables out. You know when you're into like these Connecticut Restaurant. Some of them are real hot spots. So they've spread. The tables outs is a few feet between you and every table and when you go in and look at them you helping you do this before. This is the way you're supposed to. You know when you go to New York City restaurant you're on top of everybody Katie idea eating a meal in the middle of third avenues. It's just not appealing to me. Well but They do have outdoor tables illegals and all those places have outdoor tables in the Middle Street. well street all right now. Here's the other problem Even if you've ever sat I listen if you're at the Americana and you're eating cipollini outside it's beautiful. It's the grass. But whenever you eat outside mellows or anyone those places Madison Avenue. All that happens is four homeless guys. Come right up to your table and those is tripping all of your food buses. The exhaust fumes are going all over your system. It's not the greatest experience so well we'll we'll we'll Keep an eye on this situation. I think you're GonNa have some good news when we come back on Tuesday after Memorial Day weekend about New York City reopening. You see a big drop this weekend in numbers. Hey the president went to the Ford Motor Company. He had them convert the factory. To turn out ventilators they have been turning out tens of thousands of ventilators. I know what you're saying. You're saying how do we need these ventilators for we don't but this This cuomo this crazy Cuomo remember. He was yelling. Forty thousand ventilators. It was yelling this so much that he turned the president went nuts turning these factories into ventilator producers we now have hundreds of thousands of ventilators were stockpiling. I guess the what we'll do we'll just stockpile them if there's ever another Situation like this. We'll have them in a warehouse somewhere for years. But they're totally unnecessary so the president went to thank them. inspect factory. The subject was ventilators. And of course when he got there every question from the press wearing a mask. Where's your mask? How come you're not wearing a mask? I'm watching this you ever watch his dopey Lori stokes. She's on in the morning on TV. She show and she's so disgusted by him and she said he's not wearing a mask not wearing a mask. She's sitting in the studio with a lot of people not wearing a mask showing a clip of call wearing a mask showing clips of the Blasios. Not Worrying about never says a word about them so it's just a game. It's just a stupid game. They did ask him Why he didn't wear a mask what he did. Say something about ready to the choice.

"Wow We got a lot to get to Connecticut is open. New York City should be opening about June fifteenth. We'll give you all the details about the judges. opening everything's GonNa start to open even a mayor de Blasio. Try to see if the slowest kid in the class gets it then you know you got through some. Even he is starting to get it It's Memorial Day weekend. It's Joe Bartlett when the. When the New Year started, it was twenty twenty mm. We're looking forward to the summer like I was. This is going to be a great year. The summer at twenty twenty was going to be a great summer. who kind of imagined all of this but summer begins officially today. It's Memorial Day weekend. The weather's not that great, but shouldn't Memorial Day. We can actually been next weekend. The twenty nine. This is a little early. Yeah, so I. Remember the earlier in the year. So that's great, they may. have an extra week summer. Who knew there'd be nothing? But Connecticut is doing pretty well they've opened stores restaurants. I've been calling people in the big big stores up there and. The malls and I said. How's it going? These people are coming in people. You know they're anxious to get out there. People coming. We're only at the thirty forty percent capacity though ahead to remind him. You know you're only at five percent capacity. Before this began. They forget retail already died so but if you were driving around Stanford last night Bedford, shoot where all those outdoor restaurant. There were people outdoors spread out. If you were in Greenwich there was prime crab shell. The Scowl J. House all the outdoor places, and then on Greenwich Avenue let the places put some tables outside They got a smart mayor. There's Fred Kamilo new mayor. This guy will figure this out the now. Here's what's going to happen. There's The town was pushing for it. He's figuring out. How do it? They'll close off parts of the avenue and let the restaurants put the tables out into the street, and all over once that works people are all watching. Connecticut to weeks from now. This has worked. Everybody will do that even in New York. That's what we'll do it here. We'll close off some streets. You know you go to third, avenue, on the east side Madison Avenue in the seventies, we got a lot of restaurants in a row. They'll close off the streets and let them spread out into the street Joe Bartlett doesn't know what we're talking about. 'cause he's in south. Carolina would. They went back to normal what three weeks ago. I went to a restaurant last night. It was very nice. Restaurant. But. You could eat inside if you want to write. The worst seats in. I'm not ready for that yet. Okay. You don't feel well. You don't have many cases down there, but if you were in New York City right now. Would you go to a restaurant if it opened? Would you feel little? Outside outside. I think you're fine. The service keep their masks Don they maintain their distance. No tables next to you. It's fine I i. think I feel very safe eating out. So Listen to talk to every expert you can talk to. Every expert agrees on one thing it cannot transmit in food. There's no way it's in your food that you're not possible now. What about the plate? What about the containers the take out? It's possible, but you know if you touch those just wash your hands afterwards and you find, but all the experts now that stupid CDC, which is the other slow kid in the class. They're always way behind even their now their guidelines to say it's most likely never transmitted by a surface. They think it's always droplets person to person. Touch your droplets in the air very very rarely. Is it going to transmit on the surface, so it's pretty safe to eat outside You. Know some people are afraid to go back to Sushi? Sushi, but again I've been huddling with a lot of restaurants with. Sushi might be the safest thing you can eat because. You know you've got that one Sushi. Chef there. He does everything he cuts up.

There's there's more Baha Matt how do you deal with pleasing people as a content creator because I feel like I start thinking back and forth a lot of time about accessibility like how to bring people into the door and make them interested in something without sacrificing? What makes you you know and messing around with new art styles for shows because I as people probably saw in the game set clip? I'm completely changing? The arch style. But also I want to capture a similar feeling. I don't know is that. How does that go in? Like when you were making AC- or one talking to them making. Tom Goes to the mayor or anything like that. How do you guys think about like what are People GonNa like? What's you know makes us unique? I don't know where to start with it.

Yeah why do you think I have a different now kidding? I'm kidding I thought you've done great on all of these interviews. Oddly enough. They interviewed I felt like was one of the most comfortable I for. Un even though there's a few things that were thrown as you at Zingers felt like or you were you were unsettled. I felt especially in the beginning. You're just maybe because you know Jenna pretty well. I just felt like very comfortable and I liked easier when these things are done in person. Just be guess. She's real nice. She's friendly funny in Or last two or like Joe Para was over the phone and he's already awkward and slink is cool but like he's almost statuesque in is the way he emotes like almost like it's hard for you to get in on it and that's not bad but like it's like it felt like you're on the sidelines of him as a spectacle. I really liked genus. Show US Tony before the recording. I've said this before that specifically the McAfee interview. I sent to some my college friends which I don't do a lot with content from us just because I don't WanNa feel like a brand she'll unless it's something I'm making I think they'd like But I'm not like sending Mr pickles episodes a robot chicken clips to my college friends but a few of them. Like you gotTA check this out. I think this is so good. And it's also very much my mom and my dad though they are divorced and countries apart right now I think they really like Jon Stewart stuff and I know she happens in that world. I think they always wanted me to do something like that. I had them over last October. My mom and her husband and showed them the John McAfee interview Jenna Freedman soft-focus. Certainly the mark of something good is if you want to send it to people. Yeah I mean I think it's similarly interesting as tiger king which is now in the Zeitgeist so big. I feel like that specific interview has shades of that like where you're watching this large train wreck of a person. Yeah what was fun about this interview at the end? There's a little bit of a interactively with social media that pops up that has since been resolved. But I don't WanNa spoil anything real quick.

"friedman" Discussed on What It Takes
"Down the street and you buy some strawberries. You think you've been many strawberries that you want at the price posted and you're right but muscles everybody. In the country tried to buy more strawberry. There wouldn't be any more Stromberg. The total quantity has strawberries fixed. Price would have to go. This is Milton Friedman the most influential economist of the second half of the twentieth century. So from the point of view of the individual the quantity is variable and the practice fixed for everybody together but quantity is fixed and the prices vary and what's true for. Strawberries is true for almost everything you can think of. And that's why in my opinion ordinary people are so subject to economic fallacies because they tend to extrapolate from what's true for them as an individual for what's true for everybody and almost always. That's a long extrapolation Milton. Friedman was the chief evangelist for Free Market Economics and small government. He died in two thousand six at the age of ninety four when the great recession hit the following year. Economists policymakers and think takers argued. What WOULD MILTON DO? Then the government bailout came and some said it was totally consistent with Milton. Friedman principles others called it the end of the age of Friedman. Well we're now looking at a two point. Two trillion dollar stimulus package in response to the unprecedented havoc of covert nineteen. Seem like a good time to go into the Academy of achievements audio vault and pull out this conversation with Milton. Friedman recorded in Nineteen ninety-one. You can listen and decide for yourself. This is what it takes from the Academy of Achievement. I'm Alice Winkler at this. Child is gifted and I heard that enough that I started to believe if you have the opportunity not a perfect opportunity and you don't take it you may never have another child it all so clear. It was just like the picture started to form itself. There was new. Each ally could prevail over the truth darkness over light over life every day. I wake up and decide today. I'm going to love my life. Decide assist if they're gonNA break your leg when you go into play. Stay out of there and then along companies differential experiences. But you don't look for you. Don't plan for the boy. You better not miss him. Milton Friedman was a conservative libertarian. An ardent believer in small government and individual responsibility. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in economics in nineteen seventy six. What fascinates me so about economic system. Is that the fundamental principles are so simple you feel as if anybody can learn in two days. Basic Fundamentals of economics very simple. Elementary Principles of economics are are trivial. People can spend their own money more carefully than they'll spend anybody else's buy low sell high. Go Down the principles very simple and yet it seems to be so hard for people to understand and people so often get them wrong and the major reason they do and this is what is really fascinating. Is it almost always? What's true for the individual is the opposite of what is true for everybody put together even. The economists who strongly disagreed with Milton Friedman's conclusions about inflation and unemployment and a range of economic factors. Agree that his research and analysis were groundbreaking and maybe a little more complex than he's letting on here. His ideas altered the economic policies and public policies of governments around the world including our own reaganomics. That was largely Friedman onyx and his beliefs helped reshape eastern bloc countries after the fall of Communism. So where did this giant among intellectuals get his start in a family of poorly educated immigrants who ran a dry goods store? That's where and that's where we'll begin tale. I knew I like mathematics tonight. It was pretty good at mathematics and I was an ignorant boy in a small town in a family. That never had anybody gone to college. I didn't know what use mathematics for and the only thing I could find out was that it was used in the insurance industry. Somehow Milton Friedman's parents emigrated from Central Europe. As so many Jewish refugees did at the turn of the twentieth century. They met as teenagers in New York. Gave birth to their son Milton in nineteen twelve and moved to rockaway New Jersey for this conversation with the Academy of Achievement. Friedman spoke with Jim Angle the former correspondent for NPR ABC CNN and Fox. Jim Milton Friedman whether he could remember a particular experience that opened his eyes to the possibility of a life of the mind. That's a very very hard thing to say. I had a Teacher in high school. Who was really. Somehow I think he taught government or political science. Something like that. Whatever you call them in high school but he also taught Euclidean geometry playing geometry simply because he liked to such a beautiful intellectual discipline and I took His Kirsch and one point or another. He got rhapsodised about the beauty of geometry and he quoted. The last lines of Keita's owed to a gross. Earn truth is beauty. Beauty is truth. That has all you know. And all you need to know in those two lines stuck mates with me. I was about probably twelve or thirteen at the time and I have talked with me ever since because they so much reflected the sort of feeling I had about the geometry as well and about mathematics in general that its appeal as one of beauty kind of an intellectual purity and beauty. Now that was. I'm sure that that was what drove me direction thinking I wanted to make math. Mathematics my My lifetime we're what did your parents think When you've I told them that you're interested in mathematics or even when you start to become interested in economics well first of all I have to separate out My father died when I was thirteen years old. So my mother was a very intelligent able but She was not intellectual. My father was not an intellectual. Neither one of them ever gone well. It's factor adopted. Either one of them had ever gone through anything beyond elementary. They knew how to read and write but they were in small private business. My we had a small retail store at the time that my mother ran and that was the source of livelihood and also was a source of enormous aggravation because you were always owing more money than you had funds to pay what I would say that by today's standards. My parents in the whole of their life never had an income that came anywhere close to what we now regard as a poverty low and yet they never regarded themselves as poor because they were self sufficient. They might be difficult economic straights. We never had any great luxury or anything but we always had enough to eat. We always were clothed so that we were not a scandal for a shame on the community and none of us would have said. We were poor but they were not intellectuals in any way and it wouldn't have occurred to them to comment on my interest in mathematics or economics because that wouldn't have been meaningful to them. We people like me were of new generation. We were in a different world. It wasn't their world world. I had gone up. Had been altogether different world and so if I had said to my mother you know. I'm going to be interested in mathematics. She would've said what's that not an let me emphasize it was not because they were uninterested or unwilling to make sacrifices not because they didn't value intellectual activities very highly but because they were not sophisticated but willing to support you. Whatever whatever you wanted to do because they trusted your judgment in those areas far more than they did their own. A lot of people have brains and potential and work hard. Not everyone is as successful as you have been How do you account for your success? Luck chance people grossly underestimate the role luck and chance in people's lives. If the United States in the eighteen eighty s and eighteen nineties had had the kind of laws that has now my parents would never been able to come to the United States. They would not have gotten visas. They would not have gotten in there if they had met and got married. They would have been In where they came from an area of when they left it was Hungary austro-hungary. They had been unable to come to the United States.

"And Larry Goes. Would I wear a jacket like this if I had a pie? I remember the very last three stooges appearance. Oh on truth or consequences. The three of them nine hundred seventy. Yeah before Larry had the stroke they come out. They stand there. They don't do with those curly. Joe Curly Joe Moe and Larry last last appears through the truth Bob Barker whose like a foot tall and they just standing there. They don't do any comedy like Worse Than Mad. Mad Mad band while yes. They're dressed as firemen there. Just stand and it's sad but it's it's the last time they were. They were studios. And I think Larry had a stroke right after that and that was the end of the and then they weren't even after Larry had a stroke. They which Mo- is trying to revive. The AC yeah and I think this guy who was an assistant to ally Adamson or his partner that will. Yeah Yeah I forget his name Simon and he wanted to me he was planning US talking to mow about making a Sirri. Stooges movie bringing Larry. Back into it. Who was confined to a wheelchair? And they said they'd have some see where they go to either a health club or whorehouse and and Larry Start speeding around on his wheelchair. Going up to each of the girls. I know that that film became blazing stewardesses. Oh Yeah and they use the Ritz brothers. Because they couldn't get the three. Oh the two Ritz brothers. Were still surviving You know You Know Harry Harry Harry Inhaler. Yeah Harry turns up in silent movie. Yeah Well Mel Brooks was a huge Harry Reid. And so has Jerry Lewis. They adored Harry Ritz. You know it's like hard to even get a sense of how funny how are you? It's was from the movies. But if you supposedly see saw him on stage and he was just he would just go crazy on bishops so hated since you bring up since brings up generally. Don't seem like a nice pleasant guy to me but I don't know was he hated. Yeah we haven't heard kind word about them and now him and Danny Kaye kind word about long deck of Joy. Bishop playing cards. Okay Jake side using the juicy. Yeah yeah I I travel with. I want to read a section Jeff. Ross wrote our pal. Jeffrey Ross wrote the forward to even more Jewish comedians. Or go into the third volume. I WanNa read this. Don't feel sorry for us just because we're not lookers. It doesn't mean we don't get our share of conquests in fact. Comedians often do better with the opposite. Sex than are more amorous. But less humorless friends hell even Gilbert Godfrey does hot wife. Of course he's also blind and deaf. Gilber ask new book is called all the President's portrait's you know there's no Jews in. It was an experiment. How could I do it? The whole book with no Jews in it. I almost do because in the beginning in my forward to the book I draw. I Drew Jared Kushner Yen. Lenny Bruce and the voice of Jared Kushner. I know this on. I'm John Oliver really captured. I and I know jared because he was the publisher observers. I met him a few times and he sounds just like you ask in my book. It's UNCANNY actually but in my book You know it's not a history book so it's not like I wouldn't recommend it to people WANNA learn about the presence but in the book there's like a fun fact that Kevin Doherty helped me put together for each president and some of them are A couple of them. That are interesting. I thought I don't want to give too much because I want people to buy this book of. Yes so Gerald Ford was the first president who actually invited beetle to the White House and I was George. That's cool. Wow and oh. Barack Obama collected comic books. He was a huge Spiderman Fan. Did you know that? Now and Ulysses s grant is actually not buried in grant's tomb highs buried above ground and the trump fact that trump is the last guy in the book. Obviously I saved them the last two drawn because I couldn't accept that he was the president. I put it to you know so I finally dream. He's the last guy so the fun fact about him is he is the for. Donald Trump is the first president to host a reality reality. Tv series that featured Gilbert Godfrey. Dago deal oh excellent. That is the fun fact with Donald Trump. That takes when I was working on this book. One of the interesting things for me was like and I was looking these people. I was as drawing them and thinking like who could play this person in a movie because some of them looked like I. I realized that has joined James Polk. They look just like Boris Karloff. O- how and Millard. Fillmore looks just like Alec Baldwin. Right if you look at them on Candy James Buchanan looks like John Lithgow. Andrew Johnson looks like Tommy Lee Jones. Jimmy Carter Looks William H. Macy and Barack Obama looks like Gilbert Godfrey George Washington looks like stone stone. Somebody else mentioned a William Bendix which I didn't get it and also the the guy who used to write those Mickey Selene and that one. I see when Barack Obama was still in office. I was always getting tweet where people tweet a picture of me and Barack Obama of us together. Yeah you got the ears similar haircut and plus backheeled as he had a fro- and you had the giuffre. Oh Yeah so you know. I like to point out that Gilbert played one of the people in this book. Abe Lincoln. Yes oh I know yeah I know I love you. Lincoln I love Hitler. Yes Ashley. Historical really captured the leader. Hose and really put it over. I think I'm the only person who's played both Abe Lincoln and he'd fit. Look that up. We mentioned jared. And there's a documentary. Being prepared about jared for net flicks and the guys who made the Roger Stone? Get me. Roger Stone movie have have made the stock. Yeah it's GonNa be on dirty money this series and came actually came up to my house and filmed for it. You know talking about my my relationship. I mean like yeah working for jared the New York Observer and then the time I met him At the at the four seasons he hosted a party. And that's the first time I met him so I told the story on Aaron. I'll tell it now it's like I approached him. I saw him at the bar by himself and I said the Kathy. I'M GONNA go introduce myself. He knows who I am because he had bought some of my artwork the covers the observer so I walked up to him his stand by himself. He hadn't been married to Ivonne key yet and he was but he's hosting this huge anniversary party for the observers holding Lhasa Champagnes. I walked up to my say. Hey Jared it's drew. Fredin he goes oh hydro and he's like kind of looking around surveying the crowd like Gatsby and he goes drew. Add like to talk to you but there are a lot more far more important people here for me to talk to so shocking nodded and kind of backed off and went back to Kathy and she said so. How'd that go and I said well. This is what he said and she couldn't believe it like really said that to you. I said Yeah you know and I found that kind of refreshing. His honesty is blatant honesty. So you know a friend of a mutual friend of ours of Jared's mine. Ken Carson said he was talking to jared recently and he brought that He. Did you really say that the drew Friedman and jared taught about he said Yeah. That sounds like something I would have said so confirm confirms it while. But the guy's making this documentary. They WanNa have you come to the opening to do your jared impression? He'll be fed. Don't worry about you'll be. You'll be similar wildcard question. Why does why did Joan rivers detest Lewis so much because Schuch? Because it's one more question? I think it was vice versa. I think Jerry Hated Joan rivers. He made he made it clear. He didn't women comics dating back to the he didn't like Phillips Bills Doug Jones. Jerry should be electrocuted. They hated each. Oh you know they hate each other and but I think I think it was more him. He just dismissed female comics. That got back to her and it could have been more to it than that. I think there's a MERV Griffin's show with the both of them on the panel that when Merv is doing those like really cool shows in the mid sixty s. I think we had to guest on this show. Who what's amazing about them had nice things to say about Jerry Lewis? Well you and I do have yourself as we got. Jerry liked you. And he liked me. He liked he called me when my first Jewish comedians book came out and I was nervous about it but he made a fuss on it and they invited Jerry even via Kathy. Neither Las Vegas to be as guests at one of the telephones. The second to last telephone so you know we were there in Las Vegas and then the night before they were setting up he was in his jazzy but I wanted to meet him. I had never met. I'll talk so I approached him and we had a little talking. Kathy couldn't have been sweeter and nicer. He starts moving away in his little jazzy cycle. You know like you know Zip zip and back and forth. And I say as he's leaving he goes I just met drove Friedman hands-on says like who's drew Friedman. He goes the audience. You fucking idiot. I remember when they were dedicating that wall of the Friars Club to him and it was an outdoor ceremony of course and I was sitting in a chair and I wound up sitting right next to Jerry. And he was like he would start yelling out. I it was everything you want. Louis still be. He was like heckling the ceremony. When he yell out a joke after each jokey gripe my arm and squeeze it get it and I thought wow we pulling me and he took a liking to you and he took and I was nervous as hell. Yeah when he first call me and I knew he was going to call. 'cause the editor of The Observer said Jerry Lewis is going to be calling because I did some trivia to him so I should shit you know I had to get my and I knew when he was he was going to call the next day. So okay don't mention. Morton don't mention abbegg wrestler his first agent. We wound up painting. And don't mention Sammy patrol. Yeah you know. And I didn't and we had a great conversation. He would call back and everything so then my friend. Dave Wilson is writing this biography of Sammy patrol into those. Who Don't Know Sammy? Troll is the guy who used to imitate Jerry Lewis. Jerry discovered them.
