Is Musk Making a Move to Buy Twitter?
"Now I want to get back to talking with my good friend Kurt schlichter because we are both huge advocates of free speech. We are both bomb throwing provocateurs on the Twitter bird platform and we are both huge fans of Elon Musk throwing a monkey wrench into old Parag the new CEOs the new Jack at Twitter's plans to be the thought police. So he turned down the board seat and the golden handcuffs that stopped him from taking over. Do you think he's gonna make the play and buy the company? I absolutely do, mostly because it will amuse him to do so, but it's much more important than that. Because this guy has literally more money than crassus.
Nile Gardiner on Putin's reaction to a Defeat in Ukraine
"Is it a good idea to push Putin out? Because it's going to be a major challenge. It's going to be a meat grinder bloodbath mess. Major war major escalation, Poland giving tanks and all that. But the problem is, if you succeed, now you have embarrassed and shamed and given a loss to a guy Vlad Putin, who's not a big fan of losing who is not a very well balanced individual and who happens to still be the proud owner of a large array of chemical weapons and 6300 nukes. Now I'm not a Putin fan. He's a tyrant. He's a bad guy. But is it a good idea to give that bad guy a bruising loss and have to deal with the consequences in the potential danger that could happen? Yeah, great questions, Jim. And as you point out, I also am Putin is a complete psycho and a thug and a menace to society, frankly. And that's what he is. And we're seeing that every day in Ukraine with the atrocities that his barbaric military are carrying out on the ground in Ukraine. And if Putin is pushed into a corner, you know, how will he respond? And these are very important points. I mean, certainly there's a possibility that Putin may use chemical weapons in Ukraine. And the Russians have used chemical weapons before Syria. They use them on British soil. They use them these novichok actually in the city of Salisbury in the UK several years ago against a former Russian agent, and that killed a couple of British citizens. So I'm Putin's capable of using these kinds of weapons. We can't underestimate what he's capable of. But at the same time, you know, I'm on the view that with bullets like Putin, you've really got to stand up to them, you know, you have to really demonstrate strength and resolve because if he gets away with what he's doing in Ukraine, I'm in no doubt that he's going to set his sights further
The Governor Whitmer Entrapment Scheme Is the Stuff of Fiction
"Let's talk about some important stuff here with Julie Kelly, who is one of the great Americans who has taken it upon herself to cover the abuses of power by the deep state by the left by the Biden administration and the DoJ. And Julie, I hate to have a slightly positive attitude, but we got good news on Friday in that insane and trapped scheme that they did with the governor Whitmer attempt non kidnapping. Tell us about what happened. Jim, I say often that if you had the greatest fiction writer in the world, you could not have this person author a crazier story. That would happen. The various characters, including just low life FBI agents and informants who entrapped these several kind of sad misfits in a way, and other innocent men were given into the spot so they could produce the FBI once again interfere in a presidential election. We saw a certain negative headlines for Donald Trump as millions of Americans were voting for president in October of 2020.

"But if we will then start to share with anyone you want us to share with all of our financial information. When you want to know that this business is going to be worth $10 billion. The answer isn't just while UFC's worth 9. And has a very different demographic and reach. The answer is, well, this is why it's worth $10 billion, because these are the financial assumptions. Now, one of those is, for example, the biggest number in our model is $450 million for broadcast. Global. Now, you should look at that number and go, why is that so low? The answer is it's so low because we don't need to overclaim in order to generate the ebitda which when the multiple applied in 7 years time gives you a figure of $10 billion. But by all means, get your financial advisers to explain that to you. And you know, the agencies that will be reviewing these numbers. If any of them said, well, you broke cost numbers wrong or your sponsorship numbers wrong. We'd say all right, well, please explain to us why because we're very good at this. What they should be saying is, okay, we can get you that number. Actually, we can get you 600. Globally. Because four 50 for digital and linear on a global basis is just wrong. That's the response we want. Because, of course, we're going to utilize in the same way as the PGA Tour that we're going to utilize the services of the best. Right now, the best players in the world are in a very intriguing position. Because some of them will have been offered. Money from the third party. Some of them will be waiting to see how the player impact programs allocated. So there's two parts of money that are in play for the top guys right now. Which only creates probably more of a headache for the agents who've, you know, over the years, managed to manage their conflicts. Working for the PGA Tour working for the players selling rights now now they've just got it more complicated, because having listened to them, we said, okay, well, none of your clients are going to suffer under this under this model. I feel like we are, you know, maybe this feels more like a Joe Rogan episode than it does and no laying up is maybe the longest interview in the history of this podcast, but so I ask this as a way to finally help you get out of here if you're interested doing so, is there anything we haven't discussed or anything? You think that it's important that I haven't asked about or anything that you see is an important piece of this puzzle. Do you know what? And this is not just me trying to get away. No is the answer. I think you've asked everything. The one thing I and I'm not going to ask you to change it, but you asked me the first question you asked me was to tell you what the premier golf league was. And no one asked me that in months. Really? Yes. Well, it's evolved, and I think that's what giving it the best. Give me the best opportunity to explain. My worst answer was the first time I did that. But so long as you as long as that acknowledged now, I'm it's been a joy, actually. Well, we greatly greatly appreciate you taking the time we may I'm sure listeners will have some questions we may have to have you back to do a frequently asked questions or something like that in the future. But it's great to finally have you on to deliver the message out to golf fans and hopefully help answer a lot of questions that are flowing around out there. I know I can see things a little bit more clearly. Now, even if they are in flux and there aren't necessarily answers to everything right now, it's good to get I don't think you kept anything too close to the chest. So we greatly appreciate you sharing everything. It's been a delight. And I thank you for your time. Cheers. Be the right club today. That's better than most. How about in that is better than most. Better than most. Expect anything different?.

"But not with four players in it. Because you can't, if you're getting the guys out in threes, you've only got a certain number of holes. But you can go to a 13th franchise of three players. We had toyed with that notion. We've been asked the question, could we do it? Would we go to a 13th franchise in due course? And the answer is always possibly but not right now. I've got to say that early part of this year I was sat watching guys who I grew up watching. Who I've got a real I'm a real fanboy of. And the old guys were taking on the young guys and they were going toe to toe. And it was utterly brilliant, and I know the individual I'm talking about. And I was thinking, we can't miss this. This has to have the hat. We got to have the ability to have this as part of the format. Now, that's where it then also becomes a philanthropic benefit. Our model is based off 12 franchises. We didn't need to own the 13th. So immediately thought, well, if we're creating a 13th or give it to the foundation. There will then be sponsors who are drawn to the foundation team. The shirt might be a pink shirt. But if you're wearing that shirt on a weekend, you're playing for actually a good cause. You're playing to win 4 million bucks. If you win the events, that's what you're going to win. But you're playing for something which is also going to benefit. Others who need support. But it was a combination of factors. It was creating that value for third party beneficiaries, but it was also making sure that we didn't miss. Those stories. They don't happen very often, but when they do, you'd see a guy play well. And you'd think to yourself as a fan, right, he's not in the league, but I want to see him next week. And if you're if you're in a part of the world and P gel is coming to town and you've got a local favorite. By all means, as a fan base, vote, get involved, let us see the guy that you want to see playing in your in your backyard. And that's where it came from. It was really a sort of gotta be calm miss this. We've got to see it. Do you have players that are in influential positions that you feel like are ready to run through a wall for you guys are extremely enthusiastic about this or the biggest cheerleaders in that in that influential position? If you'd asked me probably 18 months ago out of the more inclined to say, yes, there are very strong supporters. The funny thing now is that the guy who's 250th on the tour is as important to us as the guy who's first. Because he's got exactly the same voting power. So our focus is and we had all the conversations we needed to have with some of the best players in the world who I've got to say were enthusiastic for the change. But it was the recognition that we had to shift our model to provide them with really the cover. Because it's not necessarily all about the money. Or if it is about the money, it's about the money you can win. Not necessarily about the money that you're offered because you're a particular position in the game right now. So we haven't our strategy has not been to ask an individual. To be a cheerleader. Certainly, as I said, the lessons of the chairman of the pack was based around our desire to ensure that those PAC members understood at the very least, they understood. Because when you look at the regulations of the PGA Tour, the role of the pack is to consult and advise the policy board. On matters that relate to the membership. So the next part of this is guys face to face zoom whatever it happens to be. We'd just like to have a conversation with you about what it is we're proposing. You can ask, you can ask all the questions, or you can just listen to no laying up..

"Okay, so we've put out publicly. We keep using the phrase door is always open, and it will always be. Can PGA touring volunteer to have this conversation given its existing structure given the number of formats it operates, et cetera, et cetera, no, it's extraordinarily hard. Would PJ touring be a obliged to engage should a sufficient number of its members ask it to. I think yes. So this only really boils down to. Say there's 250 voting members. 25% of them can call a meeting. They can notify, I think it's the commissioner. And say, there's 25% of it. So that's roughly speaking 65 guys. We'd like this matter to be tabled and discussed in an open forum for members. And then 51% of them can decide to affect the change required for them to become owners of the league. So then you're talking roughly speaking a 130 guys. So 65 required to say we'd like this to be tabled and discussed a 130 odd 133. Who say, actually, we want to get this done. Now, that is, it was that realization, which I've got I think I said before, the Eureka moment. It was the realization that that is where the authority lies. It doesn't lie with the executive. It currently does reside with the policy board. But ultimately, it's the members who get to make this decision. So will we get a deal done with it's with PGA Tour Inc and or its membership? Is the answer. But I think if the membership is inclined to do the deal, I find it very difficult to understand how PG taught ink would resist. Being a part of that conversation. And therefore, it's that doesn't mean it's straightforward because it requires communication. It requires communication of the opportunity. Now, that is, first of all, that the opportunity exists. And we started to try to begin to convey the opportunity two three weeks ago. When we spoke again, because we hadn't said much beyond the end of June. Because we were hoping that the blueprint would be sufficient and compelling enough for the tour to engage. It didn't turn out to be the case. So the phase that we're now in is guys, there is an opportunity we would love to discuss it. We can discuss it with the organization that represents you, and it can then distill and convey that message to you. If that's not the case, then how do we best get that message to you as members? Now it was written in one of the UK publications just before the weekend. But I wrote to Rory last week. And I wrote him solely in his capacity as chairman of the pack. Now, back in June at the same time, as we were making our initial invitation to the tour, we wrote a similar letter to Rory as chairman of the pack. And he responded. And said that he believed that it might be possible to get a deal done if we could establish trust and it was apparent to the tours for stroke tours that we were not a competitive threat. Which I'm hoping is the message that's coming across. We are not a competitive threat. We would like to benefit the entire membership, and we'd like to do this in a non breakaway form. Hence, we're not a competitive threat. Now, I've been encouraged by various players and told over the last three months, they're bound to talk to you eventually. A bounty. That might well be the case. And we have an ordinate patients. As we've demonstrated over the years, absolutely fundamentally believe that the solution that we have devised in the last 8 months is the ideal solution. It addresses all of the issues that were raised. In the best possible way. And I genuinely think it is in the best interest of the sport and of the existing members of the tour. It will ultimately be their choice and we won't we won't deviate from our path until we're convinced that the opportunity has been understood considered. And if it is then rejected by the members of the PGA Tour. Then fair play. We did our best. Everybody can continue to watch what they have been watching or not watch it as the case may be. But if we are nothing more than the catalyst, because this is now becoming not a case of we want to buy the sport or we want to own it. This is a case of where the mechanism that enables the sports to evolve. And once we've built it, and it's owned by the right people, will then list it. That will give you the transparency. That will give you the corporate governance. That will give fans the opportunity to become owners of the sport of this league. In perpetuity. And ultimately, here are the best custodians of a sport. It's the fans. To me, it makes an awful lot of sense. And it is equitable and it's fair. And the PGA Tour members could actually decide who they wanted to run the league. If there are existing individuals that they're familiar with. One of the other issues that came up in full of last year was, yeah, but you've, you know, you're going from a standing start. How do we know that the quality will be the same inside the ropes? Highly important to a player. The answer is, well, under.

"Well, it's like it works for us because of the demographic. And we are brands that really want to get to that demographic. Okay, you don't look delighted but we're not delighted, obviously. Well, why aren't you happy? Well, we don't know who's going to turn up. Okay, now that's really irritating because. What other sport does that exist in? Okay, there aren't any. Okay, so we don't know who's going to turn up. We don't like the cut, even if somebody does turn up, then you don't know if they're going to be there for the weekend. You might have all the hospitality partners out there for the weekend. I mean, there wasn't only event this year new season of PGA Tour, which had 6 out of the top 50, including the world number one. Lo and behold, who missed the cut. I mean, imagine if you were the sponsor, you'd be pulling your hair out. And I met a number who have pulled all their hair out over similar events. Then you go, okay, you're spending 8 ten 12 on a title sponsorship. Yeah. And one of our competitors could be could actually be the next week. So we get one week in the summer. We don't know who's going to turn up and we can be eclipsed quite quickly thereafter. But actually, people forget that we were the sponsor anyway, because it moves on. We also, you know, if we're truly global business with operations in different parts of the world, we've got different marketing and sponsorship divisions across the globe. And we like to activate on a typically a global basis. You can't do that when the majority of a good number of the events are actually in the U.S.. It doesn't give us that global activation. We can't build the story around the world. And we can't fly everybody to the states. It's just not workable. So that was when we started to get into those details. We realized that there was a there was also a better model for sponsors where you can give category exclusivity. So they know there's not going to be a competitor. In alongside them. Where you can say, well, you can activate globally because they're going to be 6 parts of the world. We're going to be an outside of the U.S. and that really appeals and, of course, you're going to know who's turning up. And then you can start to make small enhancements to, for example, the programs. When you've got teams involved, you can start to create the team base. Now I've been extraordinarily lucky and I've been invited to the pits pit lane in F one. Have you done it yet? Have not. Oh, this is just a treat. So you get invited down to the garage. And you get to be stood next to the car. And the engineers and you go, wow, because you're right in amongst it. And then you go out front and you get to look at all the screens, which give them all the telemetry they require during the race. And then if you're really lucky, you get to go back into one of the trucks and sit down and talk to the engineers after the race. And that is a tremendous and they've also got the hot laps where you can go hop in a Porsche or a McLaren or something like that. And to a lap around the track for 15,000 bucks or something like that and they do those in between a bunch of the races. That's their version of the pro am what not. But yeah, exactly. Exactly. So team Bayes on the driving range. The ability for teams to bring in their own sponsors who get to have that experience. And then once the teams are vacated to bring in the fans who want to set up for the equipment, I daresay most people wouldn't be aware of the difference between even the shafts that mere mortals play and others play. But imagine being able to either whilst they're there or even afterwards, go and say, right, these are the guys who set up the clubs for this player. This is his setup. Now, by all means have a go. And there is a price. You can pay. To own that setup, we're not going to give you a guarantee it's going to improve your game. But you get to go to do the experience. And that's where I want to interject a personal anecdote in this in terms of I want to know one of the biggest things I want to know is like, when I go to watch the premiere golf league, is it going to be the commercial load that I'm used to seeing out of a PGA Tour event because it's the biggest preventer from me watching tour golf is I can't sit through that many commercials. It's well documented on this podcast. That being one question and then with it is like, is there not we're told so often from people involved from the networks or with the tour that the only way to pay for these rights fees that get funneled to the players is through more commercials. I'm told that so constantly. And I want to just like scream from the top of my lungs like there has to be more creative ways to generate income that don't involve what I would call a middle finger to your fans. Your time is not worth it. We are going to take 18 minutes of your hour and sell you something that is going to be on repeat some of you've already seen, even if we don't sell the spot, we're going to run one of our own commercials on it. And that just seems like there is absolutely none of that when I sit and watch a Formula One race, and they have their revenues are off the charts through a different way of creating it. And that's where I think. You guys see where you can provide the most value and upsetting the apple cart in terms of something that the digits are probably is not capable of flipping around in a year or in 5 years or even ten years. Yeah, so there's two parts to that, which is the existing broadcasters. When we started to speak to those guys, we had to start to understand the.

"When you look at the quotes from 68 because the same pretty much the same quotes have been used in relation to us. We've had a sort of realization. It was dawning on us that it mattered as much how the best players in the world would be perceived by their peers. And fairness mattered. And I'd been talking to agencies. Some of whom have 2030 40 PJ tour members on their books. And guys, they were saying, we can understand how this is good for the top guys. This is great for three, four, 5 of our clients. It's not great for the other 20, 25. What's going to happen to the PGA Tour? And so it was this realization. It was listening, and it was learning. Because as I said, we found ourselves going down a particular path, which involved paying an awful lot of money to effectively, I guess compensate for the risk that was being taken by the lead guys because they were breaking away. And COVID struck, we had time to reflect, I wasn't traveling so much. We were able to sit back because quite frankly as the realities of COVID were dawning. It wasn't really a time to be focused on anything other than staying safe. And thinking of others. It certainly wasn't really a time to be pressing ahead. So we're talking really April may last year. We then went through a process of having conversations with the European tour, which I think some people have written about, although not in detail. The deal with the European tour would have as far as I'm concerned, would have addressed the ban and the OW JR threats. Because would have been resolved by sanction from the European tour. And anyone banned in the meantime could have played European tour events. So that was part of it, but it was also to be part of the ecosystem of golf. There was an attempt again to talk to the PGA Tour and that request was politely declined. What's the timeline of the communication with the PGA Tour? What's that look like? So there was a call made probably June July last year. This is after, as I say, some of the biggest names in the game had tried because I'd been explaining for a number of years that this was our intent. It was always to work with the PGA Tour. In the early days, the response was we're not talking because we don't consider them to be a real threat. And if we talk to them, we're going to give them credibility, which we're not going to do. Towards the back end of probably 2019, it was not talking to them because they're competitors. So we'd gone from being no threat to being competitors, but either way they weren't going to have a conversation with us. We then rebased because the conversation with the PGA so it was the European tour ended pretty much simultaneously with the formation of the strategic alliance. We then thought right. What is the best way to do this, given that everything that we've learned? Because we've been doing this for a while. And we've probably spoken to bar senior executives at the PJ tour. We spoken to just about everybody. And they've all given as a viewpoint. And then it dawned on us that actually the best way to do this was to share the value that's being created. Now, the value that the league will create is probably conservatively around about the $10 billion mark. By 2030, within 7 years, you go two in your cycles, and then you're into your into your stride. So you're at a $10 billion valuation. That is conservative. It could be could be 8 9. It could be 13 and 13 is closer to the number we anticipate. What you have is the ability to create a very significant amount of money that is currently locked out of the game. Why is it locked out? It's locked out because primarily, the PGA Tour back in 74 was converted into a nonprofit, a 5 O one C 6. And I'm not going to get into the technicalities, but that means it doesn't have any shareholders. There are limitations on how a nonprofit can operate. What it can't do is crystallize $10 billion worth of value and share it with the relevant folk. Now the relevant folk for us were, of course. The members of the PGA Tour. And so our next communication with or attempt to communicate with the tour was June this year. Early June, there'd been confusion in the marketplace about what PGA was and what SGL was. I know you've covered that extraordinarily well. The confusion still reigned at that time. And so we thought it was the best way to deal with that is to. Put a website up, which actually explains our motivation, explains what it is we're proposing to do, tries to identify how it can benefit the game as a whole. And that's always always only ever been about can golf be better and I daresay you have a view and unless it's changed the last golf's perfect care be.

"It's 18 events in total and the regular season for the individual championship is the first 17 events. And so after the 17th event, the champion is named as an individual. We then roll into playoffs. And week 18 is effectively the team playoff. So where you stand in the league as a team after 17 events for determining your seating, which gives you an advantage. That you take into the playoffs. And the playoffs is $20 million when it takes all. All the previous 17 events are for 20 million bucks with 4 million to the winner and a 150 $1000 to last place. And the other bits that are different from what you might see week and week out on other tours is that because we're 51 players, we have the ability to do away with a cut. So we are 54 holes with three days instead of four, which is based really on the early days of us talking to sponsors and broadcasts as an agent and ultimately players to determine what we believe to be probably the best format. But it's a format that's I think from our previous discussions, you know that we set about this just because we wanted to make golf as watchable as possible to get us to watch every week. And that was where we came from. Zooming further out from the actual logistics of the format in the specifics of it. Conceptually. What is this golf league? Is it, you know, is it top players? Is it a breakaway league? Is that still something you're trying to figure out and something that is still evolving? Conceptually, why, why would this league exist and what is it conceptually? So conceptually, it has taken on different forms. So not all the reports that have been written have been accurate over the last probably two years. The we began with the notion of how best to secure the services of the best 48 players in the world. And that's not necessarily just going through the top 48 by world ranking. There's the opportunity for others outside the top 48 to play because we want to watch week in week out. The best head to heads. Amongst between the biggest stars. So it's not a case of just going down the list. I guess the original notion was always to work with the PGA Tour believe it or not. Some might still call that incredibly naive. But it remains our strong desire. Now, we started off talking to, as I said, sponsors and broadcasters of the PGA Tour. And so we knew that we had a format that appealed to those who funded the sport. We then began to talk to a funny enough the first conversations I ever had was with Rory. If you would believe that. And I was explaining the concept and at the time, he was he was of the view that actually this is probably what golf needs. That was some time ago, is entitled to changes opinion. But had Rory said to me, Andy, that's rubbish, I'd have probably stopped. So we went, not a coincidence. We wouldn't be doing this show right here. If Roy didn't endorse this podcast, probably. He's responsible for both of us. He certainly could have stopped me in my track. So we then went about trying to work out how to really solve the chicken and I gave you being okay, how do you get the players to sign before you've got the sponsorship and the broadcast deals signed? And how do you get the sponsorship in the broadcast deal signed without the players being committed? And that's something we've wrestled with over the years. We went down a path of what we called simultaneous completion, which was the notion of having all parties come together at once, but incredibly difficult to do. In our earliest documentation set out the desire to work with the PGA Tour and the view that once the format was understood, we couldn't see any reason why collaboration couldn't be achievable. Nevertheless, we ended up down a path of looking to pay commitment fees to 12 guys. And we got to the commitment fees because in conversation with agents and some of the players, there was doomed to be a risk. And the risk was, this is a breakaway. And so we have reputational risk. We have peers to think about we might get banned. Now that started to come up as a notion probably about two and a half years ago, which I guess was a sign that we were being taken seriously because for the first two or three years, various people had tried to introduce me to J, J monaghan, and had failed to arrange a meeting. That was some very noticeable people in the game. And so we thought well, okay, that's not looking feasible. We're going to have to compensate the guys for the risk they're taking. And when the notion of being banned came up, it was alongside this notion that anyone playing in the league wouldn't be able to earn while ranking points. And so that led to the suggestion that commitment fees should be paid and led us down a path of securing at least the prospect of a $1 billion. And this has been reported in the press, again, not always accurately. But we had a number of parties who were willing to stand behind that amount and began to become involved with discussions involving the players. That was the path that we were on, I would say probably for about 6 or 8 months. Can you back up to just what you are referring to prior years or the beginning? When was this culminating? What does this timeline look like? Technically speaking was well golf group was formed in March 2013. So that was the start that I guess the pulling together of something that had been more of a passion more of an idea, but probably when guys described it as a thousand to one shot, they were probably being kind. And we went through a process we were talking to some high net worths about becoming team owners. Reaction was, we'd love to be a team owner, but we're not going to get involved until you get this off first base. Then we went sponsored then we went broadcast to ultimately the agents, then the agents and ultimately the players. And that period that process was probably the best part of three years, which some might say is an awfully long time. But it's a case it was always a case for us of earning credibility and building relationships. So basically owning trust, which I hope we did, I'm pretty sure we did. And always doing it in the right way. Now, we were completely off radar, probably until was it sort of January of last year. So it's almost two years ago. And we came on to radar because some of our documentation was given to Jeff shackleford. I will say by a very well-known agent who thought he was helping to move things along. And I can't say that we were ready to discuss anything publicly at that stage. So that our response was quite muted. We were involved in conversations that we weren't prepared to disclose.

"Tradition stuff. Because they're so so much beauty in it is being a guy. I grew up in church. And of course you felt very like you know it's just this liturgy and it's just dumb. It's it's it's and everybody's like all's uptight. And then i got i go to a evangelical church. I'm like oh my goodness this. Everybody's like whoo the liturgy. It's almost like straight hair. Girls want curly hair people in short so we were never happy what we have and And there's so much beauty and tradition unless we're worshiping that worshiping the of worship. Don't tell me your church doesn't have a bit. I don't care what church you free songs you got. Sermon you got communion. You've got a couple of songs offering a suspect. We all have the literacy so you you don't. You don't do communion on any other sunday. The first sunday of the month only once a month not twice twice would be just overkill. Crazy crazy was re second. Hesitation is in their software. Yeah yeah you know. And i. I like what you're saying about the fact that we do have to look at our own traditions and we have to. I think sometimes it those discussions can be hard to say. Well i prefer the liturgy you. Or i don't prefer the liturgy to hold onto those things but i would imagine that if you are an older person trying to disciple a younger person. There's gotta be a little bit of that like give because you can't tell someone okay. Well the first thing you need to do is go. Find a church. That has a liturgical service. No no how do you disciple someone that comes from a different generation than you a different church culture then you just at maybe even like a different a biblical understanding.

Hope Springs - Growing Flowers From Seed, Clare Foster
"Welcome back to our conversation with clear Foster Gardiner writer editor sharing with us about her garden life journey especially, as it relates to growing flowers from seed were back to hear more about the different kinds of flowers to grow from seed including annuals by annuals, grasses, herbs, perennials, and more. When I look at the. The table of contents and see. How that flows? What criteria did you to set for your contents and the flowers you would include which aren't always traditional flowers. They are also flowering herbs, flowering grasses, It's a, it's a lovely wide range. Will thank you. Yeah. It's it wasn't encyclopedic in any way we didn't want it to be really we we wanted to include the plants and the flowers that we will really growing and that we knew worked really for people. So, cutting flowers and as well as herbs and the the more the edible side of things Yeah. So we really focused on on the plants that the that we were we were growing and that we could recommend first hand. and and I think again because Sabina was working for children seeds and had access to different varieties we were quite Specific in varieties that we were recommending even though those change all the time I mean this quite a few. Varieties now of a certain flowers that we would have put in and they've the because they they just changed the the whole time and find new things. New Exciting colors. So yes. So just just the the the plants, the that we recommend ourselves I think was the the main criteria. And the publishers wanted us to do the be friendly section which I think was a very good idea actually because I think there's a loss of interest in. Oversee ecology and biodiversity biodiversity at the moment and insects in particular. Yeah and I I. Really. This is one of the things that resonated with me about the book when it first came across my desk was the way it is you know it's a pretty straightforward book. It's about growing flowering plants from seed to fill out your your garden over the course of the season. on one level, and then when as I was reading, I kept sort of making little ticks along the margins or underlining because he does get to a lot of universal cultural conversations. The gardening world is having is grappling with right now that I think are all important and you know among those would be Ecological and Seed bio-diversity. So you know just the fact that of trying to grow from seed opens up for almost any Gardner a whole range of plants you would never find at the local garden center and it also then as you are seeing, as C. J. changes changes with the trends if you are growing from seed in that seat is able to come true from seed that you know it reproduces for itself. You are also protecting the biodiversity in A. City of seed so it gets to cede sovereignty and. And I think that is a I'm not sure what it's like in the UK. But that is a very big topic of conversation here for heritage varieties for culturally significant varieties among different groups of people. The indigenous seed keepers network comes to mind immediately the seeds of the African diaspora here in the US is it's a big part of that garden communities, conversation and then you know you, you mentioned the fact and it's clear if you ever grow from seed, it's much more. Economical you spend a lot less money. You create a lot less plastic waste in the world because you don't come home with your you know ten I'm not sure what the equivalent would be in the UK. But you're fourteen dollar one gallon pots using a lot of soil that comes from somewhere and water and and whatever chemicals might have been put on it at the nursery you bypass all of that which I think is an important thing to point out and Made me laugh when I saw comment on one of your instagram posts claire from Genie Blom who said you know annuals are going to save the world and Which is, which is true. But you you never you never preach these things in the book they come up as a result of what you're what you're. Educating people about and sharing with people because you never get far from the fun and the color and the joy. So. As you were working on the book with Sabina were some of these bigger cultural conversations sort of. At the forefront for you. Yes. Yeah I think so. the trouble is with with the book of of of this sort of this size. Is. You're limited with your word count. Quite the lot of text was cut, which is, which is a bit of a shame in a way but but yes, absolutely, I mean these things it is the subtext for the for the whole book. Ready. But more than anything I think an keeping that content that the simplicity simplicity of the framework. Was Key because I just want to encourage people to try to try doing it. And and Yes for the fun of it and the Colorado Avalanche in the garden. And and and. For The expense lack of expense that you can create your own garden so cheaply and so quickly I mean I've just you know I haven't had to ask by any annuals for my pots this year I've grown from seed and and And it so satisfying I, mean just just the whole process of it I I didn't think I can kind of do without it now it's something that.

How do we make sure that we're getting our money's worth to them this of with the actually people all self motivated and generally speaking a hard working and won't do a good job. But I think. What it shows is as that it's time for change. And the if we can change, those are two very simple examples if we can change in that way, and we're open to look for the best way forward and we focus on minds on that rather than. I.

And In my experience, very few people have learned to who they are will believe it soon. and. So they don't have a great sense of self. On the one of the challenges then is that every relationship we have a couple of people is a reflection of the relationship. We have all sounds. So let me give you some examples. What we clients over the place on one of the most common things I find is if I said to someone right I, want you to a list of five things you don't like about so. They could write the pages attached to stop. If I say, right five things that you really love about who you all. Most people struggle. I. One of the challenges that is if you love yourself and I'm we need to really define in mountains I mean by love. Love does not mean that you have to be a doormat and that you have to be a servant to your kids into a palme. Lock does not mean that you let people get away with anything if you're talking about unconditional love. because. If you truly love somebody, you want the very best for them and from them. You have high expectations of because you loved enough to know that they can be the best they can be. Said for me loving yourself his as you said, right at the beginning of the program, it's about taking care of you. One of the things that concerns me is the number of people who use. Food Alcohol Drugs both description and otherwise shutting sex work as a of a niece the -tising themselves because they're hurting. and. In that attempt to feel good about themselves, they're actually doing more damage. Now. If you hear somebody say something nasty about you it hurts doesn't taste of course. However. If you then if you say something hurtful. About yourself it is so much more cutting and damaging. And yet we do it. Don't we? Yeah. No I mean I many times. If I said to myself, you are so stupid. You're an idiot you're. Right. You know because I did something that was foolish or I did something you know like. You Know How many times did I cut myself down because I. From the kitchen to the bedroom, I forgot what I was going in there for right and then all of a sudden I'm beating myself up for it. Even though it may sound playful the truth of the matter is.

Well, don't you sure but if they do something that you don't think is Roy you'll tell them but you tell them in a constructive way and then you let it go. How many people do you know that?

Page Gardner, Founder & President of the Voter Participation Center
"I'm Jim Taylor skinner. And this is the electorate on this episode. I have a conversation with page Gardner. The founder and president of the voter participation center the Voter Participation Center has helped over four point. Six million voters register and get to the polls and page card was a pioneer and identifying key voting bloc. She was one of the first to recognize unmarried. Women as a key political population one with significant and impactful political power. He's Gardner and I discussed what's called the marriage gap. That's the gap between unmarried women and married women in relation to their registration habits and voting behaviors. We also discussed this in the context of the corona virus outbreak. Given that unmarried women generally have less financial stability when compared to married women so without further. Ado here's my conversation with page partner Gardiner. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you very much great to be here so I was looking at your numbers. And since two thousand and three voter participation center you've helped around four and a half million voters registered to vote and get to the polls which is a massive amount of people millions and millions of people. And that's that's really incredibly impressive. But I'm just curious you know two thousand three. It feels like a lifetime ago and it wasn't but it feels like a lifetime ago and I don't think that voter suppression or voter issues for mainstream. Then what encouraged you to get into those costs to become interested in you know registering voters? So it's interesting that you bring that up. We have helped over point. Six million people applied to be registered to vote and hundreds of millions of people. Turn out but just sort of tripping down memory lane in two thousand I looked at the election of Gore versus Bush and noticed the difference between married and unmarried women in terms of how they voted and their share of the electorate and unmarried women. Married women voted very very differently with unmarried women voting for Gore in married women voting for Bush and I wondered about that and the share of the electorate of unmarried women was really really small in terms of their strength in numbers in terms of the voting eligible population. So that leads to lots and lots of research and the key question was was this sort of a just an observation or was there causality in marital status in other words does marital status determine whether or not you register and whether or not you vote. And after years of research and looking at things like articles from Census Bureau scholars to doing our own research it turns out that marital status along with age and race are key determinants of whether or not you register and whether or not you vote so then. The question became if unmarried. Women are unregistered and higher numbers than they should be. How do you reach them? So then what we did at the voter. Participation Center was pioneer mail based voter registration targeting particular demographic all across the country and that was really a revolutionary. We created for the first time the first list of unregistered people in this country. Because as you know no state keeps a list of its unregistered citizens so we had to create a list of unregistered unmarried women. Nail THEM VOTER REGISTRATION APPLICATION. And then make sure that voter registration application got sent to the appropriate elections official. We did that after a number of years. And then it turned out that this process was successful with other underrepresented demographics persons of Color and young people. So that is how our program's evolved to include what we call the rising American electric which is unmarried women persons of Color and young people who are now sixty four percent of the entire voting eligible population in the country today. More than a hundred and fifty million people yet. They're underrepresented in terms of their registration rates. And they do not vote and they are not as large as share in. The electorate would suggest that they could be while. That's incredible actually had no idea that before voter participation that there was no way or no one was tracking unregistered voters. And now I'm curious. How did you do that? How did you track now? Who was not registered? Well after many many years and what we have done is refined a system where we match a voter file from state to a list of commercial data and then we delete the names of people or addresses that do not appear on the voter file and then we go through about twenty five other steps to insure the quality of the data. And after having done that we then mail out a voter registration application form that then. The person fills out and sends back to the appropriate election. Official

But I really have this urge to grow fruits and vegetables with my son and so even though that was already going to happen I dug up to maybe like eight by eight feet by thirty inch. Beds right in the middle of our meadow grass to with him to create more space. So as I talked to you he's asleep. There's dirt all over my hands and I'm feeling really really connected to the hard honest Labor of garden creation and it feels so good so good and you. You touched on a couple of things already right there. One being the fact that many of us are home as quote unquote non essential and yet in this moment so many people have turned back to activities and connections that are so essential like our own attachment and connection to how you survive how we make our out. We make our lives not just livings. And that is in raising our families and cultivating art pieces of land. So okay I'M GONNA I'M GONNA have a go back just a little bit before we dig into the structure of the book in in some of these levels on which you got intrigued. Many listeners will remember the bull dry garden. But just for those who. Don't give us a little background on you. Where where were the people? And the places and the plants that grew into a person who would wanna be a person that wrote about gardens and gardening with her son as a matter of both principle and practicality so I got my start farming in college after traveling so really interested in food and food security. I had a very meandering path and ended up in the editorial Test Garden at Sunset Magazine. Back in the Menlo Park days through to the Oakland and New Test Garden in Sonoma's county days and went from outdoors at the magazine to indoors. Writing and editing and timber press reached out to me looking for a bay area writer to write this book idea that they had about Ruth Bancroft S- Garden cactus in dry garden in Walnut Creek California and I pitched myself because I was young and ambitious and so I wrote a book about. Ruth's life and Roots Gardens. She just passed away actually also twenty early twenty eighteen late twenty seventeen at the age of one hundred nine And so just a couple of years before that. I wrote this book about her life and her garden. I think the fun one of the fun things for me as a gardener and garden communicator journalist person is seeing so many come back to gardening and recognize it as this essential thing that it is and that you and I and kind of die. Hard gardeners have has always known. And we've been advocating for now. You also indicated in this first question this sort of interesting Almost conflicted feeling about growing weed. And I think it's a perfect segue into the conversation for us on this on this program. People have been telling me that I should do an episode on weed for the longest time. Because as you note in your introduction to the book it's one of the largest crops in California and many many people are interested in it and it has this deep historical ritualistic medicinal blige intimate like wait and Gravitas to it but that is so blurred by the the other baggage that comes with it that I have stayed away from it until now because I was so compelled by yearbook and the way that you handled that year and maybe it was a little bit more of researching documenting and writing about this project. You took on as a as an assignment not necessarily a personal passion but an assignment and So we really kind of want to get into that the I just WanNa say by the way that your documentation of life at home with your To almost three-year-old Garden intern as you call him on. Instagram has been in total pleasure to watch in. Its true sort of honesty. Raw dirty fingered honesty. Thank you. It's been. It's been a massive creative outlet for me. Yeah Yeah Okay so. Tell us about this book. Why this book how did it happen? What made you decide to take on writing a book about growing weed in twenty seventeen? I had a baby and I was headed back to work You know six ish months later back to Sunset Magazine Garden editor where I thought I'd have the job for the rest of my life Kathy Brazil before me held the position for forty years and I was all set to go back. It was the week before. Maternity leave was over and the place was bought by private equity in lost my job I felt desperate to keep writing and working and reached out to everyone. I've ever written for asking for assignments Just to keep going to feel some forward momentum and a former editor in chief of the magazine. Kitty Morgan Worked at the Chronicle San Francisco Chronicle and I reached out to her until I wanted to write for her you know. The chronicle does garden design edible gardening whatever and She said you have a new baby. I bet you don't have time to do lunch But I may be called her bluff and I was like I totally have time to do lunch and met her for lunch and she. It was right before recreational use went legal and including recreational growing in California. And she was like I have this whole other idea for you. I want you to grow wheat in your backyard and documented as a gardener. I think at that time everyone like it was coming but it still felt even more taboo than it does now. We were all sort of figuring out how to talk about how he felt about cannabis being something that we can talk about and And so I told her I didn't know where to get seeds. And she said emphatically. That's your opening line and it was supposed to be for this part the separate website run by the Co Chronicle called Green State Which has since been folded into the magazine or into the newspaper and it actually got got lost its funding for a while but kitty was so dedicated to me that they ran the series in the food and wine section on Sundays and I worked through this ten part series for them on growing lead in my backyard as a gardener starting from knowing nothing to having a big crash course in the plant yet everything about the naming and needing to forge new contacts. I had I was starting from zero other than my years of experience being garden writer And a gardener no for sunset.

"And I say if you have a boiler that's faulty. You get somebody in to help you. And if you're not sure that you'll believe are supporting you empower you. Then ask the hell us. Someone is such a cell who can help you not only identify those beliefs but deal with them and replace them with much more empowered once. I really liked that analogy of the Stop Light. Is that what you teach as? Well and your thrive together tribe. It's very much a part of what I do. On the thrived together try principles based on the book thriving not surviving the five secret. Parkways to happiness success and fulfillment and that's Hoffa leadership the enlightened leadership program because in order to leaders. You have to lead yourself. Certainly you'll the common denominator that you take with you into every moment of every day so it makes sense to take radical responsibility for yourself. Your thoughts your emotions me. Nobody can make you unhappy or angry or frustrated unless you choose to let them lose to those choices are unconscious ninety. Five percent of all thinking is unconscious. We're not aware of how patterns of thinking Dr Al Patents that emotion and language behaviors. And so we don't have the choice Wickham to use the same old same old or we're going to do something. I'm sure James that you know you've got lots of examples from the people that you worked wave where the same old pattern of behavior has sabotaged any chance of success in relationship or at work all pretty well. Any context it. It's so true because I've when I was in full time private practice years ago I would work with individuals. And we would they'd firm moment split-second bid having perhaps this. I I'm allowing people to to dictate how I feel or had a glimmer of this is maybe this is my responsibility. And all of a sudden they'd go back into the old belief system. They know they made me do this or they did that. And they didn't take that responsibility and at times I'd be like Oh my gosh. You're so close. And then they reverted back and then it would come back and repeat the same pattern of finally. That's one reason why I left. Full time private practice. Because there's a time and place for processing but there's also a time and place for action and taking responsibility and moving towards what you can do as opposed to continue focusing on what you cannot do and that is so much. A PART OF THE ENLIGHTENED LEADERSHIP PROGRAM. Whitley's looking at personal and spiritual development and taking responsibility for you but also than utilizing with other people. I'm one of the reasons the programs being created in in the way has is did it gives people opportunity and lots of support one on one and within group the group to explore and to deal with these old patterns of behavior. Which if you don't deal with them. You habitually go back to them And so it's a ten month program nine months of of active working then preparation in the follow up with support so in that time people who will have been inevitably met one or other crises on so we'll support them to keep the the new way of being through those intended embedded. I really liked that. The nine months is almost like having a baby born. That's a great service. It's a bit like the iron man or the woman race it is. It is deep dive. Work on yourself on. The rewards are huge. I mean that's such an investment itself and when we look at our life because you know for right now you talked about the corona virus. And what's happening is so. Many people are quarantined or our shelter in place at the moment and this is such a wonderful time and opportunity for your types of programs or things like this because self developments were really kind of stopped in a spot so why not take some some opportunity or this time to be able to focus on the different things of how to grow and so the great thing about this. Yesterday people will be supported by NATO ship. The Senators Yes group coaching sessions. That everything's online all of the materials. Everything is there you can do it from the comfort of your own home from the safety of your own home and yet still be part of the group and the learning and growing and developing and I believe it will not only give people the skills to be better leaders when they get out of the quarantine but also will enable them to manage the situation that they are in on a day by day basis with their family and so on in much better. Why because it's leadership for life so does talk about the conventional leadership skills and principles that you need to manage to says very encompassing of all all walks of life really it's Listrik and it doesn't matter which industry because it's about you as a person and how you develop others if you think about your practice in the work you do now in terms of of offering people through radio show an opportunity to learn and grow. It's still it's the day choice isn't whether they take these things on bullishness certainly us when you look at all of the different types of people who are actually in these programs. Do you find that it's specific for one type of person or like you said. Sounds pretty encompassing for everybody with the leadership program has just gone live unplugged? It's a new program but it's based on thirty plus years experience of developing transformational leadership. And so it's GonNa be interesting to see which the people who are going to to see themselves as people to be prepared to invest in their personal spiritual development but at the same time. Recognize that. That's going to give them the edge in terms of leadership. I believe we're going to need very differently. This moving forward because the old ones haven't done to Joe and that's the thing I think many times people don't realize that in order to grow and develop you have to invest something you have to Invest Time. You have to invest your finances. You have to invest your mindset. And I think that's why so many times people don't perhaps grow as much as they want or become that developed person as much as they want is because they haven't realized that yes. I'm fully going to invest whatever it may be because the more you invest in something. The more you're going to get out of it you know. Success is just like a bank account the more you put into it the more you're going to get out of it so that is something that people. I want my listeners. You really remember that. What are you investing in? And whatever it is. What is the return on that investment? And if it's not causing you to grow and develop the more than likely that investment is pretty sour so that's why it is so important to invest in programs like yours like lighten leadership program. I think that's a phenomenal way for people to really grow and develop. Don't you think it's interesting James? That people will think nothing of investing tens of thousand pounds in a call all olden new clothes that trump has other may only where a couple of times and yet are resistant to investing in themselves. And for me as you say the no brainer that you know that the rewards that you get a in terms of the day by day quality of life from investing themselves makes a huge retouched but also it has an impact on everybody's it you come into contact with said it and I think the other thing I'd like to say. Is that in times of trouble. People often pool their homes in salience icon invested in me now. Because I'm worried about what's going on. It's the very time. Yes and that's the thing when people for example like I I went running today and I was like. I don't want to run but I'm GONNA run so I'd probably gone. I don't know maybe one hundred meters or one hundred feet rather and all of a sudden I I was like I can't do this. I'm like that's okay. Just go ahead and walk and then I realized wait a minute James. You've just ran yesterday and you did a fine. Why can't you do it now? So I took that time and said I'm going to push beyond limiting beliefs of saying I can't do this when I look at my past said. Will you just did it yesterday? Why can't you do it today? And I think that's the thing when a lot of people look at their life is they have this opportunity to grow and develop and so if they keep telling themselves can invest in. This right can't do that. That is the time when you need to do that. Because you've you've returned back to your limiting belief system of saint. I can't do this if I do this. I will fail as it comes from. A place of fear comes from a place of executive and worry and those have their place but when it comes to moving beyond where you're currently are you have to do something different and joining programs like yours. That is something where people can exponentially grow. So I can't wait for my listeners to contact you to sign up for your your program as well I hope they will.

"Do it. The one even if you're ignoring the foot thing because they feel thing would be the more questionable error that she made of the two which was right footstep. When they're doing that part and Chris Hitching up? She says snake and as she does she. Does that snake gesture Chris moving like a snake. And you see in our rehearsal. Erica's snake. And then you see them get to America just starts and there's a significant difference role in your body will call. No that's interesting if you're okay so you're telling me that me doing this. This can be interpreted as we doing. This is nick where says a full like body wave that by my issues with the challenge overall are larger than what we're talking about here. Okay this is my issue alright. This is the final seven into the final six six. If you want to try something different try to fuck and final like the first round of the second round or the third round trade early on when we are not like wedded to these contestants in away where we're bummed when they go out if Erica has lost the be challenge Jalen beat Thomas on I would have been like what that sucks but that them's the breaks this one. I couldn't even tell that. She lost until it was pointed out to me. By the show in a rewind and then it was just like oh you're done and the way it came off was just like Haha you you missed your foot. You're out which didn't really appreciate it and I know that that's not what crystal wanted. Look like but that's the way it was edited and so that's the way I felt. I felt heated at the end of the show agree with that catcher. Let me finish the other thing I didn't like about this was that it was like a mockery of a challenge. Like there was like like like weird music and it was like this. Isn't your Mama's Zimba mix tape and it was like Krista coming five six seven eight which when you have have the fan favorite in Erica fighting for her life in a battle the last thing that you want the audience to feel is out of time and I feel like I was taken and out of the moment by the nature of the challenge in a way where I wanted intensity I wanted passion. I wanted a sense of like what's going to happen but I just felt like the whole thing was a joke and I didn't really like it so I'm sorry C. J. F. K.. This challenge but I didn't send. Yeah Yeah. Sorry it's new for me. I've not the biggest fan of this challenge. I'm not saying that it's bad. I'm not saying that it's great. I don't think it's one of the Bachelor uh-huh Benxi fencer ten now because there's a one-stop fall in the middle like let's be real here. There's some challenges that just don't at work and there are some that are accepts very true very true. And there's a clump in the middle and I would come this in the middle. You're also you're calling out this issue. You call up a subjective Jack. I already rebuttal. That next would be the fact. Oh it's the fan favourite. This is how she should have gone so i. I don't know what you're asking here from an permit editing perspective. Like you know the way this show works. You have to know if I here's the thing so appears on calling audrey and I don't mean to come for Andre so audrey and you know I love you but I am calling the editing of the show here because I feel like you know the way. This edited from week to week. Eric is the fan fever. Do you know how people are feeling but this show is just last week. I feel like the theme and the the little cartoon montages over everything just totally totally wrong for this time at the final seven with a shot to get into the final six. I felt like there was a way for like intense music and like a heartbeat. Heartbeat sound to build drama into the show. which is what it should be at this point but instead that's not what a guy and I just like the whole thing just if it flat for me? That's how well I I disagree a pretty pretty. I think that this yeah. This is actually the most tense battle match that I think I've watched In a while on this season I was I was. It's like. Oh my God I like watching them do the the moves. It was like I was watching for a mistake and it was very tense for me and I think that it. I don't know asking for like a more serious tone like you need your hand to be held on a fun little reality show. Do I like the show in its infancy. I would be remiss if I didn't mention this like these things that happened in season. Two the things that happened in the early seasons of a reality show define it later on I for me not to say anything right here I feel like it would. I would not be able to live with myself if I wasn't wasn't as honest as I'm trying to be right now. Sure I just. I think that you felt this way about Eric. But like just because you feel this way about air going to have to be popular. Opinion doesn't mean that somebody who felt the same way about Cameron or or Thomas or somebody else doesn't have an equally valid opinion. And should they be catered to as as well like I feel like Audrey knows that there has been a contestant like this in every season of sequester from the girl in Jamie Lee in season. One and Jake and seasons to Eric and season three. You know that the fans identify with them. All the comments at the bottom of the episode are all about Erica. Erica you have to know that when you edit this episode. It's Erica Swansong. It should be handled a little bit better instead of like it was a fucking joke. I it's I definitely take umbrage with the idea that that it was like Haha or that. It was intentionally made out to be a joke. I think it was not given like special kid gloves. But I do not think that it was intentionally aimed to everybody's face. I agree with that. That was the results that was not the intent. And there's a difference. I think in general that regardless of how Audrey had handled this the fact the Eric went out. There would have been some complaint that that that would have been found with handling the way that people on big brother will always always find fault with the people who nominate them like. Oh it would have been fine if they had only done this or not done this. I feel like this is a little bit of what's happening. Okay okay all right..

The Next Major Challenge For Norway's Oil Industry
"Noise built up a vast fortune more than a trillion dollars from its oil and gas, wells now thinking of selling all, the shares it holds in oil gas companies here's dominant with the detail you slightly ironic this Norway has started away. All the money it's made from oil and, gas in the North Sea into a giant. Investment fundament fund is now considering whether to sell. Out, of oil and gas companies this is part of a wider. Move from, Bonn big and business, thinking again about the commitment to what I guess sewing that the church of England's own. Abyss, fund has Played a leading role in at a Matthews is head of engagement at, the church commissioners church of England pensions board Adam Strangest isn't it Norway has made a lot of money out of the North Sea why are they thinking about selling out of companies BP and shell. Now I think the funds in a unique position as is a, fun generated from from the oil and gas returns of governments holding company so it's like a, double risk in the census is revenue has come from that and then it's equally invested in the sector so that I think, pragmatically looking, at the locations, but I think the wider question is, for all investors ready to understand the risk that you face from invested in, this sector the Norwegians it's about, diversification not having all your, eggs among basket but. There's also this idea around what are? We, doing. About oil and gas the, ethical thing about. Climate change but also just. The the the financial thing around are these companies running on a road yeah exactly, an I for the church them pensions board we're a long term.

What is the risk of of investments that those companies are making in Future exploration but equally understanding. The ethical risk as well so which of these companies the best place to manage the transition which of those are going to be. The companies that we will be potentially invested in so that's the kind of movement, is underway across the investment sector we're playing a key role with other investors in understanding that, risk we've engaged on school of economics through the transition pathway initiative to identify which companies got the best management which companies are, such an, food commitments and, oil and gas companies are responding to, people that you cracking the whip on because the European oil may just want, BP shell any turtle are really, thinking seriously about the future, with climate change the. Americans aren't so much yeah I think? You'll, an. Absolute key moment in in, the transition where. You're beginning to see real. Signs a shift amongst the European on Gus majors I lead for the European investor, network juicy with shell for example you're seeing food look in commitments. There you begin to see a divergence amongst the Europeans from the approach Americans are taken where you're seeing targets or also commitments, to emissions reductions across all of their impacts companies like shell companies like turtle and obviously investors are heavily engaged we've been engaged longtime but you're starting to see that shift. Here we can see that crossed the whole oil and gas sector. And we're willing to use. All. The tools at our disposal from our shareholder rights as voters unconcerned turns of putting shareholder resolutions to drive more change in this sector because at. The moment is not aligned it needs to be aligned, with a, commitment to the Paris agreement thank. You very much at a Matthews from the church
