Please Support Funeral Fund for Fallen Memphis Officer Geoffrey Redd
"Been on the force here in Memphis for a number of years. He was a Christian man. He was also in his free time, he was in charge of security at greater community temple at Memphis, which is a church of God in Christ congregation. And he was by all accounts an amazing human being. Just a wonderful man. Put on the uniform every day. To protect this city. And he was gunned down. He died. Do you know over the weekend there were no press conferences? There were no memorials given for this man? This city has been inundated with the NAACP and Black Lives Matter and the professional race agitators and the politicians and the pundits and the media. But there was not a single press conference. There was just a statement posted on social media that the police officer had died. There was no comment from the NAACP chapter in Memphis, Tennessee. There were no comments from many of the city council members. There were no vigils, there were no marches in the street in Memphis. Apparently the righteous indignation is rather selective here. When people are gunned down, when people are murdered. It's as if, as a matter of fact, one TV station that was not even the lead story on their website. That this brave police officer had died. And that's a shame. So here's where I need your help. The Memphis police association, they're trying to raise some money to help cover the funeral cost and to help the family of officer red and they're having they're having a rough go of it. I wish I could tell you that I was not shocked, but I am shocked, just shocked.

Did you just pound balls? Like you said, the teachers buckets that have 500 balls in them or whatever. They're just pound balls left and right. Did you play holes like what did you do to get ready for you to pursue pro golf? Yeah, I mean, that first three month little deal that we did was, you know, I didn't know what to do. I mean, you guys don't remember who did I call, I call it a couple of randoms. I think I called Hank Kinney. I called a guy named Ryan Geoffrey, I talked to my buddy that played golf at UNC Wilmington that I grew up with. It was always pissed at me that I quit. And maybe a couple of people like that that maybe had just started playing on the mentors and I got and I like literally like fell in their number and called them and like, hey, what's up bud? It's will. They're like, what? I'm like, will Mackenzie remember me? They're like, will McKenzie what's up dude? What are you calling me for?

"The and mutt. May personally i know advising a handful of ceo's in their teams of the visa typically people had known for some time and it's typically now around that zone to win book of. How do you organize to compete in an age of disruption. Okay awesome so where this all started at least for me and for people that are listening and our viewing was with crossing the chasm. So what's the origin story of crossing the chasm. It's funny so i was working well first of all. I was a product manager in two companies took products into the chasm. That never came out. And so i saw a headline sort of existential narrative about was made with what happened. I joined a company called regis mckenna. Which is the time was the premier marketing organization. That was focused on high tech. I've got. I've got his book right back. Okay so reaches a fabulous so an had an incredible brand so we got to work with all the very best tech companies and so i began to be able to see. Hey look this isn't just happened to you. Geoffrey this happened over and over and over again. What is going on. And so i remember. We were drawing up. The technology option life cycle and the which was in regis his book and it was the key to understanding how tech markets. And i was looking at it. I thought you know. It's almost like the front of this thing of detaching itself from the no and so i i kind of redrew it and that led to the drawing crossing the chasm drawing in. This is like a chasm then. Hey the people in this side really don't relate to the people on the other side and you have to change your playbook across this chasm and that's where it came from. Okay you know. I read your for the first edition. And when i read it. I realized that i had experienced the same thing like you had experienced. I'd been in a couple of situations where it succeeded where we succeeded in crossing the chasm and i think it was a lot of it was luck a little bit of common sense but luck and then i've seen a particular situation where the chasm was looming and it was going to fail for that company. I i left but for that company. It was in the end failure for them. So the let's just let's introduce the basics of technology adoption lifecycle curve just for people attending and listening just so we create a foundation for the rest of our conversation. Oh let me let me make sure you have United solution to share here on all panelists. There you go okay. So i'm going to share a screen here and i. We have two slides here. But i it will be. I think it'd be helpful if we can. Just do this. Okay so this was the curve that that i saw it. We just mechanic in the eighties and basically the says when you introduce a disruptive innovation in the marketplace it will. You will get a series of responses that are characterized by the persona personas that are listed on the right hand side the spot so the first people engage in the technology enthusiasts. They're the ones that really get the technology that weather know how it works. They don't typically have a big budget they're typically more technical than their in their row but the visionaries are the ones who can get a big budget and they're the ones who say i wanna be the disrupt tour and so.

"Of make a website, get us gigs. You know, it was always me doing that kind of thing. So I think someone suggested why don't you consider performance is not for you, maybe you can go and continue studying marketing and then maybe my end goal was to get a job working at Lincoln Center or working at adults organization like that, not on the performance side. But after college you kind of take the first job you get offered and I got the job offered in a media agency in Australia and it was nothing to do with music. And I actually worked in financial services mainly on banking and insurance clients. And yeah, that was and then I think fast forward a couple of years and I put in the violin channel into YouTube and I think it kind of broke my worlds together into something that really brought my skill set together. Yeah, so I say I am a violinist. I just haven't practiced in about 10,000 days. Just 10,000. Right. It's really cool to hear you talk about when you were in setting music started to realize that that wasn't your destiny. But at the time what appears to be your destiny didn't really exist yet. So you didn't really know to have that goal of doing what you're doing now. It's, I don't know, I just think it's really cool in terms of seeing how technology and social media and all these things have changed. How we can approach our lives. Right. Can I tell this story to someone and they thought it was very fascinating? I remember the very first time I put something on YouTube for violent channel and I just had this feeling that I was creating something and that I just I just remember having this feeling so then I did more because it was really fun and I had that feeling of and I don't know if it's a feeling of this is my destiny or this is my life or this is or I just love this so much. And then you know I just really love creating this thing and you know I think when I jumped off the bridge and just moved to New York without a job without something just kept telling me you need to do this is there was this very strong feeling within me that this was what I was meant to do and of course I was in complete panics in those early years, but something to say this is going to be successful just stick with it and so I remember even from the very beginning, having this feeling of whatever this violent child thing is, I meant to be following it. I love, I just I'm super corny, super whoo whoo. I love that type of thing. I mean, I feel like hearing that moment of just knowing like, just keep going, just keep going. I know it sounds like a cliche and I can't describe it. It was almost it was almost like a light or something or you know like it was just this feeling of is it the shot meant to be, you know? Yeah. Well, it's working out really well. It seems. Yeah. Well, working out in terms of being successful in terms of following in terms of creating work for other artists in terms of spreading the word about other artists, all these things that I also really love. So it's really exciting to hear. Well, I can honestly say I really love what I do. And as a job, sometimes I pinch myself that, oh my God, I can make a living doing this and I can make an impact doing this and I'm not a 9 to 5 job anymore and that kind of thing. So. And you can do it from home if there's a global pandemic in your under quarantine. Yes. Yes, you can run the whole. We can run the whole business by this 9 people who work on my team and, you know, we used to sort of all meet in a workshop space and now we're all meeting and online meeting rooms. I think we're far more productive than we ever were. And I think after this, I'm like, why do I want to play rented anymore? So I think that that has streamlined us as a business. So yeah. Yeah. That's not that. That is another silver lining out of the pandemic. I think it just sort of focused everything we were doing and yeah, it seems that's happened a lot. For a lot of people, either the things that can continue during this time I think about a lot with my teaching, I had to just suddenly everyone had to suddenly shift gears, but suddenly I was like, oh, shit, I'm teaching online now. How do I do this? It changed everything. It changed how I teach now. Right. It's probably like afterwards. Maybe I don't need to see my students every week. I can see them once every four weeks. See all this can be online. My world skull looks like after this. Now that a couple of families are asking about, oh, do you think we'll be able to we got vaccinated? Are you vaccinated? Can you start coming to our House again? There's this, it seems exciting and also like, oh, I feel like put on pants and go. I think I have not got out of sweatpants in the entire year. I don't think I'm real pants on this. It's just been sweatpants. It's very, rarely. And then when I did, it was like, I got to buy new pants because I've been snacking at home too much. That's a whole other that's a whole nother podcast, I think. Yes. Well, it's been so great to talk to you. I really appreciate you taking the time to be on the podcast just to be sure the website is the violin channel dot com, right? Yeah. And then you can find us on Instagram and on Facebook on Twitter, YouTube, Weibo. WeChat. And also our mailing list. So yes, for those for your listeners in China, we are on Chinese social media as well. Look, I'm like, wait a minute. I got to get on that. There's a new streaming like Joanne and my team is a night of Chinese speaker and there's a new thing, the new YouTube there, it's called like bye bye or something or LAL or something. It was something very cute like that. We're also on whatever that Chinese streaming platform is. We're on it now. Oh, I love it. That's a really big. Billy Billy, it's the Chinese YouTube, and we're on it apparently. I got to look it up. Yeah. Randomly, I've had a lot of Chinese downloads lately. So maybe we're going to complete a circle with this. It's three 6 big. All right. Thank you. It's being great shouting with you. So thank you. Keep up the great work. I was going through your podcast and very impressive. So keep talking about it. Thanks so much. It's really good to hear. As you know, like, sometimes putting things on the Internet feels like, okay, anyone. I see people downloading, but I'm like, does anyone can tell me something about this? So anyway, it's great to hear. Thank you. Thank you, Michael. Take care. And so we come to the end of another episode of Mikey pod. Thank you so much for listening. Thank you, Jeffrey John Davies for being my guest on the show today. Thank you Debbie dean for allowing me to play your music, and I want to throw out there. I should have mentioned this in the beginning of the show. I've been sitting on this interview for a while and my apology is to Jeffrey and to the violin channel for making you all wait so long for this interview to come out. Also of note, there will be another Vanguard concert series which we talked about so much today. I believe it's coming out in 2022, so keep an eye out for that. There's tons of great content to check for on their website and YouTube channel. All of those Vanguard concerts are available still for free. So you should go check those out. And my part of my goal with this podcast is to shine a light on other artists and the work that they're doing that I find important and valuable. So you can complete that circle or listener of this podcast by checking out these artists, follow the links, purchase their music, watch their videos, share about it, you know, all this stuff. Independent artists like all of us, we need you. We need your support. So, you know, even just to share or just telling someone about something you heard about on the podcast, makes a huge difference. So this concludes my little sermon, whatever that was. I thank you for listening. Even if you don't share anything, even if I never hear from you, I'm really grateful that you're listening. I see your download and I love you for it. I'll see you next time..

That's going to happen in every movie like he's he's going to be an fbi agent and they're gonna be like sorry man you keep fucking up. I got news for you. We want the spoiler. Eventually they all are just working for like some sort of organizations there eventually. All working for the american government in some capacity own shannon organization. It rules they should tell improv students to watch the movies. They heighten heightened so incrementally so it works and ends up becoming an ensemble bond on samba. James bond movies.

Gps like it's so obviously like there's this new tech people use when they drive. It's like exact. After dom wins when the gps halls and they work they work phone the one giving out the gps and there was a moment later that like remembering thinking of like wanting this season vin diesel like action wanting to see dom like fucking buxom one he gals on the car and she's like she keeps asking every age is like why aren't you intimate. Like what do you. And he like when he's eighty percent of all money angel and he's like someone who's not afraid big car greece under fingernails and all of and she goes. That doesn't sound like it.

And there's sort of a spoiler in six when she comes back with amnesia is working for the bad guys winner. Back she back and working for the bad guys gabrielson. Is you tell me these things. And then i go okay but then when i see them in action i scream like i saw on. I screamed at the tokyo. I screamed. I knew it was happening. You told me. And i couldn't handle it. There's something fun about dropping these little connections to people who don't fully know about them because it yeah when you really start articulating. The movie like if nine started with previously on the fast and furious franchise. You would be like this. Is they catch you up to how they got to nine with voice over and of course. They started working for mr nobody. A shadow organization kershaw joins their crew after he kills plucking in more excited to like get through. Move like so much fun watching all of them. I hate it.

This weird man with a weird southern accent has to move to tokyo. You better believe fucking in it. They have to draft. There's this weird woman from australia. And it's literally insane.

I thought someone threw a rock. And i know he was shot and he's just like what the fuck was that. It was like the bullet gave him. Strains i like strength juice. That was shot into him. Yeah i fucking loved it. Yeah that happens with this movie. A bit with these movies is that dom has like emotional powers like if you know him. He's taller strong. If you hurt if you hurt his family you like. He can't hand and like well. That would give them superpowers. It's always like the mom who lives the car off. The baby dominance whole vibe and then he took that personally then lifts the car off the baby so they get into a hummer with sixty million dollars worth of heroin in it.

Wrx hatchback and bradley drive back to dom towns where they reunite with me And then dom finds out that. Brian is indeed the last person to be in contact with letty so they may get into a huge fucking fight. Then we find out that he was working undercover as an informant in exchange for clearing dominance record. Because she wanted to come home from panama also yells it at him and come home up. So it's so many. So many grown men take four on fucking ham fist to the face in this movie are in the next scene just thanks. Brian sound designer. I would want to work on these movies. Because it's like all right. These punches really got sound intense. He's angry but it's not gonna hurt anybody he doesn't he doesn't bleed but then later in the movie when he shoves the other like annoying. Fbi guy into the wall.

You just said what makes the fast and furious franchise work for me so that they don't they don't give you like half fucking bullshit and then fucking get you. The biggest one at the end of this movie does fucking slap yet. So it's sick. They open hot and like and that's look and that's such a fun way to start a move and almost all of them start with some elaborate car race playing like that so this to me really felt like a second beat of the first movie it felt like they were a racing to in three and floor is the actual sequel which it is because tokyo happens at some point after down. This movie takes place before tokyo drift. Which is the third Yeah and then also takes place after two okay but and before right before five and but also five and six take place before three. Why no it fast. That's what i was thinking about my airplanes out sand on the fucking subway. Yeah i would just go fast. Four furious areas chicks fast. Six furious in the opening was gopher. Never having seen any of them. I was hugged by the opening. Like that was an awesome sequence. It was super fun. It was like like i like. Oh shit like they make vin diesel. They make dominic thereto like a marvel superhero with his physical capabilities. Yes but what. I like about this movie. They spread the wealth they let. Let's get on the fucking gas like they let the women and the minor characters do like so much fun shit in this movie like everyone is equally capable as a matter of fact. That's another hallmark of these movies. I hate to keep calling pat superhuman strength. Only every movie everyone is gained like seven levels inexplicably where. It's ludicrous isn't in this movie. But in the next one. He's like the master. Hacker and roman is like i'd cat burglar in han like a weapons expert. Giselle bunch is in june. She got gal gadot. Rather joe gal gadot gal think. She looks slightly familiar to me. But i don't know. And i will not record the podcast for five minutes. I'm chris took a certificate program at ucla extension and then returned to the crew knowing way more safe plus plus okay. They're hijacking fuel tankers again. This trucker pretty like i gotta get. I'm going truckers. In the first one he bails. I'm not going down with my guana. Jumping out also is gas like that. Go seventy six. They saying this. They're like gold here..

They have to be able to do it today. Like full start to finish completion. Four at the very least to be able to start it and maybe keep doing it. I'm going to give general specific so watch a tedtalk.

If you're apply to spam email on that one is hilarious as one of my You all do. I'll add to in their a radical experiment and empathy. It's one of my absolute favorites and the other one is a ted talk about nothing. I think that's the title of it but it's the snl writer. Who does a ted talk in the entire style of of ted talk but where he talks about literally nothing. It's absolutely incredible. It's one of the funniest things ever to grace at ted stage. Okay if you have any superpower what would it be teleportation. It's good one. I i if i tell every hotel every guest this but i of all of these questions. This is the one that i learned the most about people because of the what you chooses. A superpower is a very illuminating question. So you're in pay. I know that i get where you're going. Well it's because i have people. Yeah so so it's teleportation is. I like to travel people. Wanna see but i'm impatient. I don't want to there. I don't want to slow down. I gotcha your impatient. Okay a drug that you could take vaccine that you could take gave you an eighty percent chance of developing a superpower and twenty percent chance of developing an incurable terminal disease. Would you take it no interesting. Feel like i should specify the incurable terminal disease. Because sometimes they take like twenty thirty years. I mean we're all gonna go. So i feel like i've got to work on this question but eight. Yeah i play you know for me. It's you know. I'm pretty happy life so it wouldn't be worth risks. So what if. I said ninety five percent five percent you get. You're getting me closer closer. This super do. I know at the superpower's no it's totally random. It could be like able to like grow your fingernails. yes Well there was. There was a tv show. That had this family. I watch family. Guy had it where meg grower fingernails. None other. it was a movie. I saw recently where they take the pill and then they will have a superpower for certain Just sold us. It was wasn't where they have a superpower. Yeah i turn the pill they take it and they would have this power. That could be good or bad for a short amount of time. You got a call and we'll find we'll talk. I final question final questions. The big. i know you've seen all of the vendors movies correct. I have okay. So you're familiar with i've yes i don't have seen the whole movies but okay that's all usable but for the most part so okay so you're familiar with the infinity gauntlet. You're familiar with how it works. You put on the infinity gauntlet with all six stones. And when you snap your fingers you're able to do anything you're able to wipe out half of the life in the universe able to bring back catholic life in university able to do basically anything.

"I think for as much as technology is doing wonderful. Amazing things in the world. And i think a lot of the things i would say half the things that technology does well and is like improving. The world are things that technology initially destroyed in the first place right so i think that the net if you if you take the net of all of the technology it's negative is negative environmentally negative socially it's net negative and just so many different ways and i think ultimate from an edge bill except for nhl ninety five which gets a pass in my book. But i i look at it. And i think somebody has to write these algorithms. Somebody creates these programs. Somebody builds this hardware and all told were negative on the whole thing. And i don't see it getting better and i don't see us turning the corner technology enough to undo the harm that we've already done through technological progress. The industrial revolution. Basically put us on this path of qatar catastrophic climate change and while yeah we we have a higher standard of living and you can see behind me. I have a giant tv And i always have the latest iphone. And all those things i i still think it is a net negative in the world and i think if you continue playing out on the on the slope that were on it is undoubtedly going to destroy us in one way or another. There will be things about it. That will help us. In fact once it destroys us there will be technology we will need to rely on to save us but like by and large technology will destroy us.

"Things is just as a cultural styled note. I lived in england for ten years. And i think that's true in england than in america. Yes america is the land of quantico possibility on although it's hombres by everyone as a kosher daddy deal of success in the idea of the american dream and all the things were were is ingrained in us in a way that in other places. It's not that's true. But i would also say the counter to that. Is that in the united states. I think more people think that they are better at things than they actually aren't so dunning crew like i think in america. Everyone's like it's landed possibility. We can do anything. And i'm just like one one new job away from being a millionaire. No you're not. You are extremely average right now and to actually get to your potential. You'd have to do a lot more work than you're currently doing. It is a bit of a dichotomy there. I'll with them. Yeah like well. Let's talk about human potential and you jeff. So here's my question. If you were gonna be an olympic gold medalist. What would the event be an not a sport but what event you know jeff. Her the olympic gold medalist in Nhl ninety five. Now i think at this point i might be the best player in the world but still playing it like someone on a. I think it was on a podcast recently. Either on the podcasts. Or was immediately after we stopped. Someone said to me that my superpower is bringing out is helping them see the best in themselves and believing that they're capable of achieving it. It's like it. It's it's like an effortless boosting people up and you know part of me would wanna say like something like charm or charisma or something like that. But i think that that's sort of a sub function of the skill that i'm actually talking about which is like i think. My ability to see greatness in people would be my gold medal talent But i think that my heel injury that i would get along the way is that's I think i also have a short temper for people who are like rude or condescending or so like that for most people i can but there's just a certain trigger with certain people where i'd be like you know what i'm not going to see the greatness in you. I'm walking away anyway. i think. Maybe that's my gold medal. I don't know. I also make are really really good fried chicken so i think i'd be willing to go toe to people on a fried chicken competent buttermilk elliptical medalist in fried chicken. Yeah i pretty dynamite. Okay so you. We both love movies. I i like this question. I don't know why but who would you wanna play you in the movie of your life. My initial gut reaction is to say a bunch of people that would make absolutely no sense so like it would be like a dangerous dench Samuel jackson The the dude who played So like it my initial reaction to be someone ridiculous but it. And if i had to have somebody like actually play me in a movie you know. I probably would like might. The first thing came to my head after. Like the answer's probably tom holland. Because he had nothing to do with the spiderman of at all. I think that's part of way initially jumped in my head. I was like well then. Like through the transit of property. Like the six degrees of kevin bacon like i'm basically spiderman dude. That spam played jeff. It's you know it's sort of like when you see an actor that you there's like conquer particular role play something different like the can't see you as anything else So you've worked for me a long time and work the content and this is the sharable podcast. So what makes content really sharable. So i could give you like the The jonah berger contagious answer. I could give you like you know at the robert shield dini influence you know Factors i guess. I would just say like it's going to be different for each person. And why but. I think that i think you pass along content primarily because there's some benefit to you personally right so like i'm thinking of the different groups that i'm friends with right so like i share content with one of my group texts because it's something that we share similar politics. It's something we all might find funny. It's something that might trigger discussion that we could all get into intellectual and thought provoking and helps all of us grow. I have another one where it's just a bunch of savages and like we just send the most ridiculous things possible to try and like get a rise out of each other and then i've got other people where it's like. I like i send stuff to my wife because it's cute like if it's a puppy or unicorn flowers or something like that like i sent her things that are cute because i want to make her smile on the so like but so all of that i think is in service simultaneously of the people. You send it to and in service of yourself like you want the reaction from them of having given them a gift that is worthy of their attention. Praise whatever so like with with my group of savages. The goal is to get them to go. Yeah that one was funny. Good one right so like that for me. Is validation like ghanem at the same time like for them to laugh. Like i want them to laugh so i think that what makes something sharable is that it's got something of value could be something that's funny. It can be something that's educational in in the infotainment space. I guess it's either information or entertaining or both but it's got to be one of those and then you know then there's always like the all the shock the this that but like there's all the different categories but at the end of it comes down to you want a reaction out of someone else that validates something in you that in some way enriches the relationship with those people and i think the the sharing it in the more social context the social media sharing it to the many is because it is another entry in the brand of you. I share these sorts of things. Like i share long form intellectual content about content or i share like in your case you share stuff about storytelling because storytelling part of your brand and you want to help people get better at that. And that's your thing right. I share stuff on leadership. Because i want more leaders out in the world. I'm particularly interested in leadership and sharing leadership. Content people are like. Oh this is interesting leadership right so like i think at its core. That's what it all really comes down to as you know some sort of a reaction innovation i think again what i took from that that aligned with my kind of view is it's valuable content that's meaningful to a particular audience. Yes and so. I think again. It's about that audience because of its you share the same piece of content to drip for groups. Someone's gonna live and once again so it's really about finding that sweet spot of things that you have in common that you both go. Yeah that is funny. Yeah i mean the stuff i send. My group of savages is not the stuff to make my wife laughs. She's like i don't get it also. That's kind of weird so yeah it's very audience dependent and when it's one too many i think it's your you have an audience in mind that you want to see you a certain way or the you want to serve and give value to in a certain way. I'm going to shift back to technology that old saw on a on the blank ultimately technology will destroy us to believe that no. I absolutely believe that absolutely what you think. We'll take over. And we'll be terminator. I mean technology..

Wouldn't even believe me but like there's not a technology out there that i can think of that nine year old me would think is cooler than that. Because i've always been into video games but like where we are going with stuff is just bananas. Yeah i look at some of the graphics of of the game. I mean my son's a huge xbox fan and plays nba two k. And to see the players like they not only looked like they moved from i. It's i saw a little behind the scenes about how they do it. They actually travel around. And that was you can capture. It's insane and amazing. So i love old video games so i have a system where i can play like sega genesis from like the nineties. And you know you look at them and they're just like these pixelated messes of of nondescript people like there's no any and again yet you look at these like i. I play nba two k. As well and you look at the way that they swagger up the quarter what they do after like a foul or something and you're like holy that is exactly like james harden right. yeah it's the ability represent reality in that world is insane and it's not. it's it's but i. I grew up playing game. There was a game. I love called one on one doctor. J. versus larry bird that i know yeah Now i'm sure. The graphics i wanted to do is take that game and then recreated with the technology today so i could dunk on larry bird. That's just my own desire. I think about that all the time. I think i want the technology. That's like one or two leaps from here. We're basically like you can sort of like maker bot technology. Where like you could basically. If you have schematics you could like basically print anything. I wanna be able to deepfake myself into every spiderman movie and be peter parker and spider man. Like i want. There's a bunch of old video games that i want to be able to just say like can you just make this for like ten or whatever So like there's like a bunch of old games. That like. I just absolutely love. And i'm like just make them awesome graphics and give you the exact same with the same controls and everything just better graphics. So was there one particular game as a kid that you would just obsessed with. Nhl ninety five is my obsession and it probably will be. I literally bought a like a two hundred dollar like emulator box. It runs on a raspberry pi and all these controllers. So i could play that as thirty thousand games on it. The only game that i basically play aside from friends come over is nhl. Ninety five. and i have like three different seasons running. And i have like it's a whole thing and i still love it. It's still so much fun. I want to ask a question that i across a question. I thought this was a really interesting question to ask you you or anyone but what is something you believe that most people don't think i believe that most people don't of mind bender and now you know i i think on the one hand there's i don't think i actually would have an actual answer to because i don't believe that i'm all that different from other people i think. Part of what is at the core of me is that i believe like pretty similar. We have some slightly different beliefs on things. And like but but i think anything that i've thought of anything that i believe any idea. I've had i think somebody else out. There has probably also had so to a certain extent. I think just from the law of large numbers and like statistical probabilities of things. I think there's probably not anything that i believe that nobody else does that. Said there are some things that i think that i think. Probably more uncommon Maybe it's just perception but like You know one thing. For instance. I think Now i'm thinking about. I don't know if i it's all that uncommon let me ask you to differ way. I think that that. I it is hard to think But what's on you believe. In more than most i definitely believe in the potential and capacity of human beings like and i think and this is one that i'm confident in saying i believe in this more than other people because i think a lot of people don't even believe in their own capacity let alone like the kind of like that the aggregate of people like i. I believe that we human beings are like we are capable of such extraordinary feats of intelligence and ingenuity and engineering and Athleticism and like all these things that just seem completely impact like here. I'll give you a really good example. There's actually this might answer the previous question. I don't believe that people that anybody has ever run a marathon. It's sort of like there are people who don't believe pigeon pigeons baby pigeons. You know what i mean like. I don't believe anyone's ever run a marathon because to me. The idea of running that distance seems completely counter. Like it doesn't seem like it should be possible. So people are like ran a marathon. I'm like you're lying. So but that said i also believe that people like the fact that we have iron man's and and super marathoners and we've we've set foot on the moon and we like. How does the cell phone work like. How does if like everything fell apart. And you had to rebuild an iphone from scratch. Could no no we couldn't. This is like a thousand and one years of ingenuity. That just got packed into one little rectangle so i guess i am simultaneously amazed at what we are capable of and what we could do and i believe that we are capable of but i tend to believe that most people most more than seventy percent maybe more than ninety percent of people have absolutely no clue what they are capable of. They don't believe that they're capable of of substantially more than they currently do. They don't believe that there's a path to it And i think to a certain extent. We've we have a structure and a system. That makes it very difficult for people. But i think by and large the little voice in people's had that tells them that they can't is more believed than the voice in their head. That tells them they can do. Extraordinary things is just as a cultural styled note. I lived in england for ten years. And i think that's true in.
"geoffrey" Discussed on Shareable
"Every guest takes me up on the opportunity. But i like to do a segment called the mike swap. Where i make my guest into the host and then i become the guest. Let them take the conversation wherever they wanna take. It asked me whatever they want. And it's a lot of fun. I think this is mike swap. Welcome to sharable. I am jeffrey klein your host and today. I've got a mike swab. And my guest is jeff gilbert who is a real life superhero as well as the world's most handsome business strategists. Now jeff. welcome to the show. Thanks for having me jeff. I've really been excited to be unshareable for some time now. I know i've been excited to have you. And i'm going to conceptualize a show you with nine questions. I you know. I'm all about nine dots and try to connect the dots for object gabbard with these nine questions. Okay and the first one is a bit. they're all gone. And and i think it will give us some insight into you the way you think. And that's my goal is to see what makes you tick. So let's throw the first one. Is you had a song play every time you enter the room. What song what to be. So the f- so i'm gonna go with my gut answer but if i really thought about it i would probably choose something different but i would probably pick. Dj called- all. I do is win because it would need to be something. That's just a touch obnoxious. And a little too cocky swagger but enough so being that little bit too much that people can tell that. It's done in jest. So i get from that. You know that you want to joke around issue originally has been really important to I think because. I was a fat kid. i use humor and Being the class clown as kind of like my way to connect with people And i was made. My parents laugh when i was a kid as to imitate movies that we watch and everything and i loved watching my parents crackup so humor is definitely always been away that i could immediately validate you know a relationship with someone that like. They're getting something out of this relationship. It caused them backlash for me. Personally like some inner turmoil in my teen years but I it is always been somebody. That's important to me. And i feel like it is a reminder not to take myself too seriously the you know life is really serious and lot of darkness out there that like humor like the thing that allows us kind of brighten it up and So yeah that's definitely part of it for me. Were so now. you're a grown up a new. The right now you are of age house your team. You've been in business for a year or two a home and you are the world's most handsome business strategy. You're no longer that fat kid. So how has she been different as you've matured a timing bit I think it's there's sort of the same. Dna is when i was younger in. It's just i think I think it's matured a bit. But i i think humor in my earlier years and still to this day is a little bit of a It's a challenge of status quo to a certain extent like i feel like mur- is designed to kind of break. Formality and i find formality very uncomfortable. I find rules very uncomfortable. And i find that humor is the perfect thing to kind of push rules touch you know push against boundaries. I'm a boundary pusher. So for me. Humor is one of those things where it allows everyone to relax a bit so like i'm definitely the one that's willing to go first and break things down just a bit so that everybody else can feel comfortable. I'm willing. I don't embarrass easily so for me. I can use that That self confidence and self assuredness to help other people feel comfortable. So that's anymore. How used it in my adult life and as a speaker i find that it's one of the best ways to keep people engaged. You know if you make them laugh sometime in the middle your talk you know and then you're going to get through them better. I think there's some science behind that. But i don't know i'm sure there sci fi i also think it's it you know in terms of that balance station piece. I think it's Getting some lapis is so rewarding. Because it's a win win. Janos feel good about an eighth. Feel good about it and i guess there's an element of that can be hurtful on not that any of the kinds of you would ever use but there's enough on people the difference between being funny and making fun of someone. How do you deal with people who don't know that distinction. I mean honestly. I have a lot of understanding for a lot of empathy for people that do that. Because i think people who make fun of other people have some hurt inside of them that they are expressing and living through and there's definitely been periods throughout my life that i made fun of people For a variety of different reasons. That i look back on with regret and some some Some limits of shame. About but i realized that it was during a time in my life. Where maybe i was going through something. And and i was using that as a crutch to not deal with what i had to deal with and i think that the more you become assured of yourself and your place in this world and your respect for other people you gravitate away from trying to do any sort of harmed people especially using humor. I think there's making fun of people in good fun but both parties have to be in on it. So there's a certain consent there that has to happen. It's like if you sit in the front stage of a comedy show like you're consenting to be part of crowd work so like that was your choice right back if you don't wanna be dealt with don't heckle. But i think in in life you know if if you make if you are made fun of without your being in on the joke i i i mean i think it's unfortunate but i i've noticed in my life like most of the friendships i've had with other men have tended to be There's been a lot more of that like you know jabbing out one another making fun of one another and like is this the way that guys tend to socialize and connect with one another. And i've never really been particularly comfortable with that play along but like it's not really my thing And it's one of the reasons why i've tended to be friends with women throughout my life a lot more and again. I'm not trying to generalize like all men. Are this way or that way. I've just done in my experience that i've been able to have deeper more enriching and interesting conversations with women and we can laugh about things that aren't at anyone's expense whereas with dudes it's kind of like is ripping each other and that's part of the thing and you know sometimes you hit somebody in their soft spot. You know like somebody who struggled with their weight as a kid like somebody makes a fat joke me. I'm like that's stung cuddle deep. You know what. I mean so see i. I appreciate the question. I think just to to summarize the answers. I i try to extend a little grace to those people that make fun of others and realize that they're coming from a place of hurt. It doesn't excuse them but it's just more like that's kind of what runs through. My head is like oh you need a hug. Probably yeah you saw. And i totally totally agree that oftentimes people are being whether it's critical hurtful. It's something on there and some insecurity. I wonder if script this is show about people and technology. I have a question for you about technology. So what current technology that didn't exist when you were a kid. You think that your nine year old self would be most excited about. None was coming video games. One thousand and ten percent video games..

Explain what a decks is and why there are. Different decks is in the world. Yeah you know see great question. Sometimes i knew present some slides about this so yeah i will let me tell you about different decks of maybe a little bit history about like. We should exist puritan. The which order the riddick source and appeared may be doing to sixteen or even earlier. I can't remember because i joined Development in twenty seventeen they own audible waste the same way as centralized exchanges works. There are like lucane so actors their makers and takers makers they create orders for being fitted feel. It was exact prices and takers. They do feel the owners. They execute their swaps immediately but they have some potential sleep which because litchfield bunch of force for was different prices. Those who played anders lakers. They always was exact price which was like the owner and one over the significant improvements internal self gas costs was allowing people to create orders of chain.

MindsDB: Automated Machine Learning with Jorge Torres
"Or. Hey welcome to the show. I geoffrey thank you for having me. You work on minds db. What problem is minds db trying to solve. We're trying to solve the problem of making it very easy for you to apply machine learning if your data is in a database. Give me a little bit more context wise. Is that a problem that is worth solving the problem that we see people have when they have a prediction that they went to make is that they didn't to reinvent the wheel over and over and maybe the best way to cover business and example. Imagine that you have a database with inventory information and you want to forecast how your inventory listing in the next week or the next day next month and traditionally how you go about. This problem is that you have davis scientists or a machine learning engineer that goes into your database extracts inventory for your iphone mentor and then loads into a data frame panzer frame. They usually work on fifa notebook and they go and build a model spent some time weeks. Maybe they really good build a model and then once they helped this model day. Even a model is pretty good. They run into a wall when they want to move this model into production. What i mean by this is usually in that same database. You not just have an iphone. For many of the stories you may have thousands of products ten thousand products or even you may have tens of thousands of products as well as many stores that you may have and what that means is that you're going to have to train tens of thousands of models for solving that particular problem off predict inventory. Which is unviable like. There's no way that you're going to train a model for each of the products that you have on each of the stores that you have so given that. You're davis rain. The database the workflow that minds be enables for people to say well. Actually i want to predict this call from this table or from this query and figure out the rest and what does is that allows you to do two things. Tell the database itself with simple command. Like i want to make this prediction. Usually do this with an insert statements and the to be worlds and you do it straight into database and then what might be behind the scenes says that it figures out. What's the best way to train a model. That is a time series model for this task and then it will publish just model as a table that also lives in the database and then you can query predictor the same way that you create a table so you can do okay now from my select from predictive model where the product is book. And the data's tomorrow and it will tell you the inventory value from

NYT Tech Correspondent Cade Metz on the Corporate Forces Shaped AI
"A is now a household term whether it's powering driving directions or spotting tumors and cancer patients or driving big discussions over our bias autonomous weapons or the future of work but despite the fact that the first neural network was created in the late nineteen fifties. A lot of what i just described has taken place over only about ten years in his new book. Genius makers new york times tech correspondent kate. Mets writes about the history of ai and the corporate forces that shaped it since the mid two thousands. He told me ai. Pioneer geoffrey hinton really rebranded neural networks as deep learning. And that happened. Just a bunch of other factors. We're coming together really. fifty years. After this idea was first proposed we finally had the two things that were needed to make it work. What we needed was all that data and the internet gave us that gave us lots of photos. Lots of text. Lots of sounds that those neural networks could lies but we also needed the computer processing power needed to crunch all that data and by two thousand and ten we had both and so as jeff was rebranding. The idea we also had the technology needed to make it work. And then you have this of of sort of ten years where it seems like a creeps into our life in ways that are pretty invisible right like talk about this sort of life. We're living now. That is built on these discoveries in this work that we may not even realize. Well you see this in your daily lives today when you power up your iphone and you speak a command into siri. The way that syria is able to recognize. What you're saying is because of a neural network. As time goes on we're going to see chat bots start to emerge. We're seeing this now and that's driven by by neural network as well as self driving cars and other robotics that are coming to the fore rely on this one

Ask Geoffrey: Chicago's Old Passenger Rail Stations
"Chicago's old passenger railroad stations for decades acted as the city's front door where people from all over the country arrived seeking a better life or just the thrills of the big city. Jeffrey bayer takes us back to the golden age. Rail travel in this week's ask geoffrey. Hey geoffrey good to see you paris all right so we have a question from larry gardner of skokie he says. Could you do a story on the old train stations that once stood in downtown chicago. Well of course we can. There is as you mentioned. The the late nineteenth century the early twentieth century this was the golden age of rail travel when people traversed the country on trains. And of course right at the center there at the hub of it all was chicago. It's hard to believe. But as recently as the nineteen sixties there were six passenger train stations in downtown chicago today. All passenger trains that come into the city from beyond the suburbs. Go through the last one standing union station which is now owned by amtrak. It's designed including this now. Demolished concourse was right along the river there and the colonnaded main building which is still standing right behind it. In this picture of those things recall the grandeur of rail terminals in those glory days of designed to wow the traveler of the way many airports do today met with. Certainly the goal of another neoclassical designed terminal. Check this one out owned by the chicago and north western railway you know classical buzzards and it stood at what is today. Ogilvie transportation center which is operated by metra. That station included ornate concourses. Waiting rooms even dedicated spaces for barbers and hairdressers. People traveling across the country The chicago north western railway traced its roots to chicago's very first railroad. The galena chicago union established back in eighteen forty eight. By chicago's first mayor actually will be ogden. Certainly the golden age of travel there and then another key player. Of course you hear references pop culture all the time the illinois central oh absolutely That country that company billed itself as the main line of mid america. It was a dominant player. Both in passenger and freight rail their main passenger terminal was called central station once stood just just south of grand part right on the lakefront there. The railroad built this mammoth terminal in one thousand nine hundred three in part to accommodate the influx of visitors. That were expected for the world's fair that year you'll notice almost all of these terminals have clocks or clock towers so people hurrying to catch trains didn't have to fumble around for their pocket watches that of course they had watches it. All central station was also an important point of entry for many african americans who came to chicago from the south during the great migration with like so many of its contemporaries central station met the wrecking ball. In this case in the mid one thousand nine hundred seventy s amtrak diverted there trains to union station but there is still an active platform. Eleven street serving the metra electric line and i gather it's the inspiration for that residential development around their central station. Which i believe. Richard m daley lived there for a while and not to be confused with grand central station. Of course right. That's right and yes. We had our own grand central station. here in chicago. Not new york's wasn't the only one ours was at harrison and wells on the western edge of the loop. Read along the river for about eighty years. It was just north of if you know we're river city's development is today Traffic declined grand central after world war. Two this photo with the board of trade there in the background was taken in nineteen sixty seven at the end of the stations life. It was torn down in nineteen seventy one and this is one of several places in the city. were abandoned. Railroad land is being redeveloped during construction of the new development on this old site buried. Stones from grand central station were actually unearthed and they've been re purposed for a river walk. One chicago train station of actually is still standing So in addition to union station is dearborn station. South loop although of course. It's on train station anymore. You can see its clock tower visible all the way from the north side of lube looking south down on dearborn but what happened to the top of that clock tower. Take a look at this early photo. And you'll notice it once had this huge wooden flemish roof on top of it but in one thousand nine hundred twenty two. It caught fire. Look at these incredible photos from the scene as crowds gathered. Luckily firefighters were able to save the building. But but not that tower roof. I the nineteen seventy s. Most of the train. Shed was demolished but the facade and portions of the terminal were preserved as part of a mall. Serving printers row by the building is still called dearborn station. In fact peres as you just pointed out. Many old stations live on in the names of new developments of the one. You mentioned central station. Just south of grand park word. Mayor daley used to live and then a new apartment building at harrison and wells is using the grim central name

Should The Simpsons Cast Be Replaced With AI Voice "Actors"?
"With most of the actors who voiced characters on the simpsons well into retirement age and the show seemingly having no intention of ever stopping a meeting. Cut wallover at wired. Uk wondered. could the actors all be replaced with a i rep locations. It makes a bit of sense off the bat. Near the proliferation of deepfakes circulating online aside major movie franchises have increasingly been patching together old footage of actors who have passed away like carrie fisher and the rise of skywalker and paul walker and furious. Seven or even just to fabricate a younger version of an actor who coincidentally had an entire body of work from their teenage years to use as reference points like robert. Downey junior in captain. America's civil war and will smith in jimmy man and with the simpsons. You only have to create the voice shortly. that's far easier especially with over three decades of content to pull from wired turn to tim. Mixed smithers canada-based. Ai researcher and media producer. Who builds a speech model that can be trained to mimic anyone's voice and notably has already recreated homer simpson for a few youtube videos including one where homer stands in for julia roberts in notting hill. Here's how he does it. Quoting wired mic smithers built generic. Ai model that can turn any text into audio speech in english when he wants to make a new voice he tunes the model further with two or three hours of new data of that particular person. Speaking along with a text transcript it focuses in on what makes a homer voice a homer voice and the different frequencies. He says after that it's a matter of asking the model to generate multiple takes. Each one will vary slightly and choosing the best one for your purposes and quotes bonnets. The performance is pretty flat as wired. Says it's quote as if he's reading out something that he doesn't really understand the meaning of and quotes which is pretty apt for homer still in the hut the performance. The show would probably be looking for there are other startups around. The world. Likes an antic in the uk and replica studios in australia. That are working to add. Some of that emotional resonance to a voice is using actual actors to help train them performing different lines over and over again with different emotional tones. Technically if you had someone recite all the existing phonemes in the english language or redescendu since that contained them all you should be able to then piece together any possible words. He wants but in reality. People's accents emotions can change things just slightly enough to make the process exceptionally challenging. Although absolutely doable and the time it takes to train the ai decreases over time with more data. Both semantic and replica studios who work primarily with video games where. There's a lot of intriguing possibilities with things like getting a character to say the player's name or whatever. The player wants them to or having a i basically work as a stand in until a real actor comes on board both of those companies say the actors they work with get paid anytime their voices are used in a game and this is a key element for me. Not just what rights doesn't actor have if they're only ever used to train in ai and not perform roll themselves so to speak but taking this back to the simpsons what rights do actors have whose voices are recreated to be their characters the screen actors guild affords actors certain bargaining rights over the use of their likeness. Which does explicitly extend to a performer's voice and while his protection is being rapidly expanded and reexamined as technology evolves you can impart think crispin glover for its origins after crispin glover declined to revive his role as george mic. Fly in back to the future. Part two they technically recast him. But they saddled the new actor. Geoffrey wiseman with prosthetics and employed classic stage tricks like having him upside down or wearing sunglasses to obscure his features as well as the use of some footage of glover himself from the first movie. Unless you were well aware that glover hadn't returned for the sequel. You probably wouldn't have had any idea that the george mcphee racine was any different from the first movie so glover sued the producers for using his likeness without his permission and for not paying him for the use of the footage. He shot for the first movie. But the legality of all of this now banned far beyond simply using a performance likeness and in many cases. Who is allowed to do what isn't so clear. There's copyright law which could give authority to the studio or whoever owns the rights but that counteracts with the right to publicity basically crispin glover thing and that's especially tenuous with cast as well known as the ones from the simpsons. You know a lot of people know these actors and if in a i replicated homer were out there. Advertising for some product people might assume dan castellaneta who voices homer is endorsing the product even if he had nothing to do with it so it's a tricky path to tread and personally. I'm a bit wary about the idea of ai. Replacing actors were any type of artists. Mean that's not to say that i don't want. Ai involved in arts. I think various tech can produce really rad art. I just don't think it can replace human-made arts and especially with something like the simpsons you know on the one hand. It's been on so long that it's the perfect fodder for ai. Replicated voices because then it could live on beyond the actors. And i guess honor them in some way but on the other hand. It's been so long that there are countless voice actors out there who can nail the characters voices perfectly and probably with more emotion.

Sharing the story of save the music and the lessons contained within the be here could see joe thanks. Hey i'm delighted to have you. So why don't we start sharing with our listeners. The origin story of save the music. What was the germ of its mission and tell us a little bit about the journey. Yeah i mean safe. The music's mission and vision are the same today as they were back. joni urine. John sykes aretha franklin one. Dvd's categories aretha flying sleep dion and Every student every public schools should be making music as part of their education. I think you had a great overview of why at the intro. We know for decades of research that when schools have music students do better. The school does better. The community does better In normal times. I travel all around the country even in the toughest schools when you get to that band room or that choir room. You know. it's that joy and inspiration and hope for the future and all those things. So i i love going to high schools middle schools elementary schools. I love interacting advanced features van kits. It's amazing the landscape out there. Is that most schools in the. Us do have music as part of their school day. there's a quote for geoffrey canada That i'm sure i'm angling but it's something to the effect of if you wanna see what a quality education looks like. Look what rich people do about. Eighty percent of american schools have music and art as part of their school day And the programs that caught over the years. And we're we do. Most of our work are in schools that serve black students immigrant students and in rural rural students as well. What do you love about your job. Henry donahue because you loved this i love so it you you mentioned. I mean i've worked in politics and advocacy and social impact in various ways for for a long time You know at purpose Which some of your listeners might be familiar with worked on gun safety. We worked on marriage. Equality we worked on A project involving immigrants and You know the fight for the fifteen dollars minimum wage. All of which were were were deeply deeply satisfying. But when chris mccarthy who's the guy runs. mtv now came to me in we had this conversation about the h. one. Save the music which five six years ago you know still had a very solid sort of core group of program team people working there doing amazing work but has sort of been what i call know an orphan corporate asset on. Cbs empire. You know. I was presented with the opportunity to do the thing that i did for my job. Which was you know corporate impact strategy advocacy and combined with the thing that i spent my whole life in love with which which is music. Which by the way you. You don't have the benefit of seeing henry. But i do. And i see a keyboard. And i see a guitar so yeah. This is a music guy. You're a. You're a an advocate Andrew musician and you get to do both in the same job. That's pretty awesome. Yeah i think this is sort of at the core of was eighth. music does Which is i remember myself as a pretty angry and somewhat directionless
Artificial Intelligence in Industry
interview With Geoffrey Tate Of Flex Logics
"So jeffer-. I wanna start off with certain difference between doing business with the data center versus doing business at the edge. I know that the hardware you folks are working on. Is you know what i think. Most people think hardware. They think about the big rack sitting somewhere in the data center the edges different the edges. New it's its burgeoning. How do you define the edge when you talk to people. Because i think people always think about those racks but it's clearly a blooming ecosystem. Yeah well azusa terms of different people defined differently but where we basically look at businesses any system. Outside of the data center there can be things like cellphones stations in verizon stations that are kind of in between what we're looking at your robots this. He'll cars field ultrasound systems in the field. So these are systems that are separated in well removed from today's yet. Okay and and obviously pretty wide. Berth as to what that could be almost any industry this this could be applied retail. You've got cameras energy you've got i don't know some some big turbine out there. You know generating some power killing in occasional bird. You know it's pretty pretty vast swath of of what what can imply does that. Broad world of edge cluster. In any interesting ways. I think industry would be one that makes sense. Maybe you can talk a bit about that but we also use case what you see edge sort of us for a certain way tammy how do you think about this whole new space. Those of us at home. it's it's sort of. It's new it's novel but how we want to break it up. Well we're just touching the top of the iceberg so we've engaged with a lot of customers see a lot martin's segments and they have different potential sizes so one obvious one is countered. There's cameras all over the place. You mentioned walmart's wells fargo's there's cameras today wired into servers in the back offices of these places and serve servers not in the data center and right now those cameras us recording video in case somebody shoplift something that got her the tape. Now they can add inference start tracking their stores checking buying behavior along the lines along the take to get through the lines things like that. So that's an application where you need object detection and recognition similarly when you're talking about robots robots moving around into distribution for a warehouse. They need to know you know what. Say iraq to put things on. What's the what's the person to make sure you don't get them. Yeah so you're detecting. You're recognizing them taking action appropriately. Same thing happens with cars so those are all object detection recognition models like yolo the three which do an excellent job of doing that. Which are people are flying now and we see medical imaging and there's many types of limiting there's crazy. Mri machines are much less expensive or numerous ultrasound. Machines x-ray cd stamps and stuff in between so there with the people are using models for his more specialized object detection recognition typically. You're standing your knee. It's stuck in there. It's not moving but you're looking to detect some anomalies in the x ray on the ultrasound. South is the baby. Ok is the got busted acl. So it's helping. The radiologist do occur. Job of diagnosing powell. That's what those kinds of models need to be doing. Things like Scientists gamma joining or life sciences. And they are in many cases what they're doing is looking to clean up images using network approaches through extraneous information clarify the. Which if you've ever seen like an ultra sounds like i just recently hasn't surgery. The doctors were trying to find a vein of the my shoulder. I can see the ultrasound. They were looking at a teaching hospital. And i couldn't tell what they said when they when they started a doctor they couldn't tell was on either but eventually they figured it out so these ultrasounds are hard to make out in. Computers can make better judgments which results in better outcomes says. A wide range of applications are seeing for inference models. I think we're just scratching. The surface gets more powerful and cheaper is going to go into more more more systems.
Why I'll Never Make It - An Actor's Journey
"geoffrey" Discussed on Why I'll Never Make It - An Actor's Journey
"Throughout his career. Geoffrey owens has been an actor director and teacher but he's best known for his seven seasons on the cosby show from nineteen eighty five to ninety two and more recently for a photo that surfaced in two thousand eighteen of him working at trader. Joe's i've wanted to bring him on the show for a while now and finally reached out to him this past summer in twenty twenty introducing myself and the podcast after several months of back and forth is finally aligned for us to sit down and chat about the long lustrous career. He said but just as we were getting started with the interview. He said something. That surprised me from what i can tell from what you said about your podcast in your themes or whatever. You don't mind people being honest about things. I prefer that yet. Because i find so many actor interviews or like doing this great job and oh people are so wonderful. You're not looking for feel good material. I'm looking for things that have gone wrong. But then how you overcame them or if you did it's that kind of stuff. That's what i like to focus on. Okay is i just wanna feel like. I can say whatever i feel like saying. Oh that's actually what. I hope all my guests will feel like absolutely and without we began our conversation impart one we talk about his work on the cosby show and how it's impacted his career since then and impart to we focus on that trader joe's photo and the true meaning and importance of work though he's appeared in many tv shows and films jeffries i love is the stage. He grew up in brooklyn new york and attended the high school of performing arts which is known by most people as the high school featured in the film and tv series fame. Jeffrey went onto graduate from yale university and two years later he had a chance audition for tv show. That would ultimately change the course of his life. Welcome jeffrey to the podcast. It's so nice to have you here. Absolutely thanks for thanks for being persistent now your experiences and training as an actor early on were we're mostly theater. Based particularly in shakespeare in that type of thing was television part of your plan as you began your acting career. It really wasn't. I mean really wasn't i mean it's funny to say that now considering how much of it i've done in that the fact that tilts still to this m i'm mostly recognized as that guy in the cosby show. That's definitely the most well-known thing i've ever done. But you know when i started out coming out of college getting better jobs. I really didn't give television and film much thought at all. I was just Bent on doing theater so when the cosby show thing happened it was kind of a side kind of out of the blue. And i almost felt kind of side swiped by it. I actually remember being concerned that it might cut too much into my leaders. Stuff like okay. This is cool. But i hope this won't keep me from doing the bitter well. At the time it was a new show. They were just in their second season. When you auditioned actually a wild story. I i actually people ask me. How did i get the job on the cosby show. My answer is my mother and then they look at me. As if i have heads and then i have to explain. No it really is my mother. My mother was the one who actually connected me with the agent that ended up submitting me for the cosby show through whom i got the show. How about that now. When it comes to you had mentioned being so identified with with the cosby show for more than thirty five years. It has almost been cosby. Show actor geoffrey owens. Now does that feel limiting. Do you wish people like me would stop asking about it. Like what are your feelings on that it has at times go limiting. i'm not. I don't care if people i don't mind people asking me about it. I feel like i've done enough since then. That whether people know it or not recognize recognizing it or not. I know that. I'm much more than the not not to belittle garbage. The cosby show was was huge. It was significant. It was important it was meaningful So i don't know my belittling it by saying but of course i've done so much more than that and a lot of the the the theater stuff that people don't even know about but no i mean at times i have felt a little bit like just in terms of casting. I have felt at times. People have just identified me with that in the business that god has been bothersome that people in the business casting wise like. Oh he's alvin. We know we know what he is. We know who he is. You know what he does. I remember there was one story when a well-known director was auditioning for film. Might agent. i guess you know tried to get me submitted for it and the response was something like. Oh yes we we we know. Jeff thank you we we. We know jeffrey's work. Thank you very much and i. I never knew whether what that really meant. But i couldn't help feeling like they must mean they know that he's elvin and then we're not looking for that and there was no recognition that i could do more than that and that was that was frustrating. Yeah once the cosby show ended. I imagined in some ways. Was it hard to find work with. Was there that certain expectation of the kind of actor. You were the types of roles you should be in well. You know what it was interesting. I continue to work in theater pretty consistently. Because i work even while i was on the cosby show because i was a semi regular. If you want to put that way. I i worked in the theater on shell. I kept working in theater after the show but it was interesting because after the show ended i didn't get much. Tv and film work actually and a lot of people when they come off of a show especially a successful show with that much would notoriety not much attention. That much focus might very well go into another shop will be offered another show or at least have a lot of audition opportunities for these shows. I tell you patchy for whatever reason maybe it was because of what was going on in my life Otherwise at the time. I don't know maybe because it wasn't enough my focus or whatever but for whatever reason that did not happen at all in fact Auditions even alone jobs. We're we're kind of few and far between i remember. The first significant thing i did after house was the paper which you know cosby show ended in march ninety two and i filmed the paper in the summer of ninety three so over a year and had gone by between the end of the cosby show and my next even remotely significant acting job. I imagine that year year and a half was you started wondering wh what's happening. When wins my next thing. Going come on i wondered. I wasn't too concerned about. As i said i was doing theater. I was involved in other things in my life. That took a lot of focus. So i wasn't worried about it but it did occur to me. You know hey this is. This is a little odd that You know i did this. Hit show for. I was wanted for seven seasons and and i i just kind of expected i guess somewhere in my heart. I expected that things would come from it and that was not the case. Now with your theater. You said you continue to do that. Then you're theater. Life really wasn't affected by cosby show one way or the other occasionally it was but but for the most part i i worked on cosby seldom enough so that i could do shows i do shows the i only i only recall one. Maybe two instances where there was a conflict between the show and a.
The Walther PPK, the classic spy gun that changed the game
"Let's start off with one of the iconic pieces of technology. That james bond depends upon in practically every movie that's different from the novel series and the movie series but in the movies. He has a sidearm. The the vaulter or walter. Pk which is the one he carries. In most of the movies there is a point where he switches from the pk to the p ninety nine that would be in the movie tomorrow never dies and from there all the way through to casino royale. That's what he's using. But then it goes back to the p k. Now stands for police pistol detective model and you might think. Well where does the k. Come from it comes from the german word. Which is oh. Let's try this police. The police pistol criminal model. Oh boy i know. I butchered that one. Probably doing it better than i would. And and in german it is in fact pronounce vaulter. Yes yes yes. But in british and american where we say walter. It is spelled w. a. l. t. h. e. r. But the germans do not have a thaw sound. It's a it's a hard t or a d sometimes depending on what germany but at any rate so this is a very small gun which makes sense. It has to be concealable right. So it's a small gun. It's semi automatic. It's double action. It's pretty reliable. Yeah it's a often used in various law enforcement agencies throughout all of europe both the the Pdk and the p. ninety nine were and so it's one of those that you find all over the place in europe so made sets and in fact In the novels. I think he has a beretta. Originally in the first few novels he was carrying a beretta until a fan named joffrey are geoffrey boothroyd. I've clearly been watching. too much. Game of thrones wrote in recommended more appropriate weapons in nineteen fifty-six and fleming went in and made the switch and then furthermore honor jeffrey by naming q. After the character of cue up through Through the point when the original actor passed away. I was named them major. Both also you know in in the casino royal movie casino. Royale movie with Daniel craig the jumping way ahead but in that film. Apparently he is convinced to hand over his beretta to trade. Up to the vaulter cute. I don't remember that. Because i've more or less blocked that foam from my mind. I have not seen it.

The second king of england over the rights and privileges of the church and at one point excommunicated the archbishop of york so tough rain away to france for a bit under the protection of king. Louis the seventh of france but then he returned in eleven seventy two england so henry second in england said something to the effect of like ugh. This guy is driving me. Four of his knights interpreted this as a command to go. Get rid of thomas becket So on december twenty ninth seventy reginald fitz ertz huge morville william to tracy and richard le breton showed up at canterbury cathedral. According to accounts left by the monk jer vase of canterbury and i witnessed named edward grim. The knights placed their weapons under a tree outside the cathedral and hid their chainmail armor on your cloaks before entering the cathedral to challenge becket priest the night. He's hold beckett. They were taking him to winchester england to give count of all of his actions and kind of like hold him accountable in front of people but becket refused so the four nights retrieved their weapons and rushed back inside the cathedral. Oh my god. I beckett proceeded to the main hall for evening prayers and the other monks tried to like themselves into different parts of the joe for get said to them. It is not right to make a fortress out of the house of prayer in order them to reopen the doors so the four nights wielding they're drawn swords ran into the room saying like thomas becket. He's a traitor. To the king the knights found beckett in his spot near the door of the monastic cloister the stairs into the crypt and the stairs leading up to the choir of the cathedral where the monks were all. They're like still saying their prayers. Like oh no right. There's just four guys having running in with okay upon seeing them becca. I am no traitor. And i'm ready to die so Edward grandma eyewitness. He wrote a very extensive account of exactly what happened. I will save you all the details. Let's just say that for nights wielding swords kill the priest in canterbury cathedral. That's terrible so soon. After his death the faithful throughout europe european venerating beckett as a murder in february eleven seventy three which was just a little more than two years after his death. He was canonized by pope. Alexander the third and so sure typically like canonization of saints takes lake decades. Yeah stuff happened so the fact that this happened so quickly was kind of saying that. This guy was a big deal. So related trivia. Facts about thomas becket. Geoffrey chaucer's the canterbury tales. Ninety two is set in a company of pilgrims on their way from southern to the shrine of saint. Thomas becket in canterbury cathedral. Okay never made that connection no me neither ever okay So the schreiner was built between eleven eighty and twelve twenty and up to one hundred thousand. Pilgrims would have visited the shrine every year for more than three hundred years. That's my gosh locked. Yes it was adorned in marble gold and jewels and murdered saints. Tombs was one of unparalleled splendor in fifteen thirty eight. during the reformation. The shrine was destroyed following the orders of henry. The eighth who definitely be talking about in a little bit more twenty. Twenty researchers digitally reconstructed the raised sanctuary and available to view on the beckett story online and we'll share linked to that because it's really interesting how they did that. They took This thing had been such a big deal for more than three hundred years. And then it was raised more than four hundred and fifty plus years ago at this point and so they took accounts that the pilgrims had made that other monks had made in in digitally recreated which is pretty up and also modern works based on the story of thomas becket include. Tes elliott's nineteen thirty. Five play murder in the cathedral later adapted the opera assassination cutter. Dry ill the brando pizza'd in nine hundred fifty eight. You did that. Can i tell you flawlessly Also nineteen fifty-nine play by John we called beckett which was made into a movie with the same title and paul. Webb's play four nights in nair's borough which was written in one thousand nine hundred nine which recounts the aftermath of the murder of thomas becket by the four nights who made the worst career choice in history.

It looks like four blades. Good the name so four blades. Stuck together by the four to killed him in canterbury. That's thomas becket.

The Years (plural) Without A Christmas
"Of christmas it is indulgence. Christmas has long been time to break out the good booze and gorge yourself on sweet desserts made with expensive imported spices. To say nothing of the gift giving you know who didn't like all of those things oliver cromwell when he and his puritan forces took over england in sixteen forty five. They vowed to do away with decadence and went full. Alan rickman sheriff of nottingham and cancelled. Christmas shops were ordered to stay open on december. Twenty fifth and soldiers patrolled the streets with orders to seize any and all food. They found being prepared for a feast. It would take no less than restoring a king to the throne in this case. Charles the second to get christmas back. Puritans weren't exclusive to their native england and a bunch of them thought the spoiled beauty of the new world could really use some severe self-denial the puritans we refer to as pilgrims and about whom many myths were dispelled in. Our recent thanksgiving episode were even more orthodox in their puritanism than cromwell bonus fact that parallels the split between the amish and the mennonites. The amish broke off because the mennonites weren't strict enough since the puritans were among the first europeans to establish themselves in what would become america celebrating. Christmas was not a thing. It wasn't simply that they didn't celebrate it themselves. They didn't want anyone to celebrate the holiday. They had dubbed fools tied as an england shops and schools were expected to be open though. Interestingly churches were ordered to be closed on christmas one of the two days a year when even the laziest christian can be bothered to turn up. It was more than the frivolity and gluttony that they minded they viewed it as not properly christian. Puritans followed the bible very strictly. If something wasn't in the bible like taking any day for rest other than a sunday it might as well have come straight from the devil that would include the idea of resting on the day that jesus was born but since the bible also doesn't specify what day that is no big loss s historian stephen this inbound explains puritans were fond of saying that if god had intended for the anniversary of the city to be observed he would surely have given some indication as to when that anniversary occurred. The date of december twenty fifth wasn't officially the mass of christ until the fourth century. When pope julius the first subsumed the roman festival of saturnalia into a christian celebration. Which gave us some of our most enduring traditions like holly in candles. Puritans were also not keen on the papacy so they didn't care if it was official for twenty two years from sixteen fifty nine to sixteen eighty one. The celebration of christmas was actually outlawed. In the massachusetts bay colony the law went into effect one year after the brits had gotten their christmas restored by well the restoration the laws stated that in order to prevent disorders to the great dishonour of god and offensive others. Anyone found celebrating the holiday. Either by forbearing of labor feasting or any other way would be find a hefty five shillings on one christmas day. Plymouth governor william bradford noticed some people playing an old equivalent of baseball and ordered them all to get back to work. Now would be an appropriate time. If i make an aside and i may because it's my show to remind people that religious freedom is when you say that's against my religion. I can't do it but religious freedom does not mean that's against my religion. You can't do it. Even after the ban on christmas was repealed in sixteen. Eighty one staunch puritans still fought against christmas celebrations for decades in sixteen eighty six. The newly appointed governor of the dominion of new england closed shops on christmas day and sponsored a holiday service. This idea was unpopular enough with enough people. That soldiers had to accompany the governor to church. Those sorts of protests of christmas would continue but their focus would shift from celebrating at all to the way in which it was celebrated and what a way it was. We aren't talking about a family sing. Song and three helpings of pie or even old timey whistling colonial celebrations of christmas looked more like mardi gras mashed with halloween. If it took place during spring break drunken revellers take to the streets wearing scary masks or dressed like animals singing boisterously and demanding food drink and money under threat of violence ad in the ancient pagan roots of those practices. And we see that. The puritans had quite a lot to get their noses out of joint about boston minister. Cotton mather preached to his congregation more than thirty years. After the law's repeal the feast of christ's nativity is spent in reveling dicing carding masking. And in all licentious liberty by mad mirth by long eating by hard-drinking i- lewd gaming await. Those are meant to be bad things. After the american revolution or the kerfuffle of ungrateful colonials as the british call at surreal thing. You don't have to google it. Just trust me. English customs fell out of favor and since celebrating. Christmas had come over from england. It began to peter out to. It wasn't even declared a federal holiday until after the civil war in eighteen seventy. It was around that time that americans. Reinvented christmas and it changed from a raucous pagan carnival. Holiday into a family centered. Day of nostalgia nostalgia used to be considered a mental illness by the way. But that's a story for another day. So why the shift. The early nineteenth century was a period of class conflict high employment and of rioting by the lower classes that tended to come to a head around christmastime one such christmas riot in eighteen twenty eight moved the newark city council to institute. The city's first police force in response. This motivated certain members of the upper class to change the way. People viewed christmas literary figures like washington irving the man who helped co defy the until recently launched view of christopher columbus in eighteen nineteen. Urban wrote the sketch book of geoffrey crayon gent a series of stories about the celebration of christmas in an english manor house wherein the rich person invites pour into his home and the two classes of people get along swimmingly and celebrate with quote ancient customs. As nice as that is it's worth noting that the details of the books revelry don't parallel any celebration. We know of irving actually attending and seems to have been completely imagined. It's the season of giving and you
Quibi shuts down after six months
"Between the idea being less than perfect, which we We own and the environment we found ourselves in is where the fail has come. That's Jeffrey Katzenberg, founder of Quick Be in an interview with CNBC yesterday morning, and this is after the announcement that Quimby after a mere six months as a streaming service is shutting down and this is an idea that many people were skeptical about from the jump. Jeffrey Katzenberg and his co founder, Meg Whitman, raised a lot of money, $1.75 billion, and yet people didn't think it would work. And when Jeffrey Katzenberg says, as he does repeatedly, we don't know what went wrong. I think a lot of people in Hollywood Matt think they do know what went wrong. Yeah, this is a case where the critics ended up being right because most people from the beginning said What is new about this idea? You are attempting to create a market for premium short form. And that people would pay for on their phones when the market wasn't exactly screaming for this idea, Geoffrey thought that high end star driven vehicles would work on phones when most people are perfectly happy looking at TIC tac, or snap or YouTube or watching premium content on places like Netflix or HBO, Max on your phone. It wasn't exclusive. It wasn't original, and ultimately it failed. Well, I would say it was original idea, but unfortunately, it was an original idea that no one asked for five minutes. 10 minute increments says this programming was offered in. I don't know that many people who just wanna watch five and 10 minute things. I mean, especially as you say, in the world of Tic Tac and Sam and YouTube is available again, and it's not premium content. People don't seem to even at this point have an interest in that The hypothesis is that they would, but they clearly didn't And it was a very cluttered market. Anyway, they decided to go ahead during the pandemic. Now, you know, they are saying Is this a reason why it didn't work Was it of the wrong time, and people did complain that they leased in the early going? They couldn't watch this stuff on their TV. They also couldn't share it on social media, So there were a lot of issues there. But the fact is, I don't really think the pandemic has anything to do with it. I think it was an idea failed because people are not wanting to pay. You know, they're they're slowly coming to pay for other streamers. They wouldn't want to play for five and 10 minutes stuff and none of it. Most of all, I think, really sealing the doom. Nothing broke through. I can't think of anything that people chattered about. That was a must watch on quicky. No. In a lot of the time that, Katzenberg said people would be watching this stuff was going to be spent that doctor's offices are on the bus or commuting things that did grind to a halt during the pandemic. So was not an ideal time to launch. This certainly didn't help. But It didn't fix the ultimate problem here, which was that it was filling a market that did not exist. Now. It doesn't mean that down the road, someone won't figure out short form premium content. My opinion is, it will likely be an existing streaming service like snap or YouTube or one of the others that figures out how to get people to pay for this kind of short form content by launching from scratch, declaring that you are going to reinvent The entire content universe raising $1.75 billion from a bunch of traditional Hollywood oriented cos That's a challenge.
