The hoarding feedback loop people hoard Bitcoin this causes a higher Bitcoin price, which leads to higher mining profitability and greater media attention. The higher profitability leads to greater total hashing power, which leads to greater security of the network. The greater security plus the added media attention leads to a greater perceived legitimacy. This leads to greater business adoption and greater user adoption, which leads us back to more hoarding.

"I want to look at one other idea which is in some ways violence sort of produces its own opposition so that the harsher you behave, yes, on the one hand, you do get compliance and people do fall in line, people are afraid of you, but it's also the case that violence generates enemies, you have more enemies tomorrow than you did yesterday. And over time, you can see how it's effective in the short term, but it can end up having great costs for your campaign in the long term. Yeah, I mean, I think one helpful way to think about this is to think about tactical effects versus strategic outcomes. So if you think about that event that took place in Spain with the 15 M movement, the short term effects of those types of events are often really obvious. It's things like greater media coverage. Like maybe they wound up on the front page rather than on the 20th page or something of the newspaper. Maybe there was a self defense justification. And so somebody was able to get away from that event who otherwise would have been beaten up by someone. Short term tactical reasons why people often say C, that violence helped. But then if you look at the long-term strategic outcomes, it also has really important after effects. For example, the expansion of repression against people who were involved in the movement or their family members, whether they participated in the violence or not. It often has the effect of then expanding government powers of surveillance and infiltration and other types of things that actually are really challenging for movements to manage. And then sometimes it alienates would be supporters and often creates a sense of unity and camaraderie among security forces, for example, rather than encouraging them to take a moment and think about what they think is going on in the country. So yeah, I mean, I think most of what we know about incidents of violence is that it does harden the opposition rather than kind of softening the opposition and allowing it to fracture. And this is part of why a lot of the research, for example, on the impacts of terrorism on a political system are that it's very polarizing, but it generally leads the population to embrace more right wing political beliefs about what the government ought to be able to do to restore public order. So what's fascinating to me America is that our model our mental model, I think, is still stuck in sort of what we see in on television or in the movies. Where we see that violent people who have been unjustly treated, resort to violence in order to get justice or we see that groups that basically want their way sort of use violence to win. I'm not sure it's sort of a concerted effort to look the other way, but there really does seem to be a reluctance to grapple with these histories in a way that at least commensurate with the way we we think about conventional military histories. Yeah, I think part of it is just basic misconceptions and myths about what nonviolent resistance is. For example, when people use the term nonviolence, I think that they often just associate that with a moral position and they think of it as something that's potentially noble, but extremely naive, you know, they don't think about it in terms of a strategy that's literally helped to shape the world we live in right now and that's available to anybody anywhere to a certain degree. There's an interesting book called recovering nonviolent history that's edited by mache and there's an opening chapter in there about the myth of violence and how sort of appealing it is and how we memorialize it in mythologize it and make it part of our national histories, but the book is full of examples of nonviolent campaigns that were formative and developing nations around the world, including in the United States, so one of the chapters is actually a look at the American Revolution by Walter concert and in it he argues that actually the most important part of the American Revolution came in the ten years before armed hostilities broke out where colonists were effectively using all kinds of different forms of economic non cooperation and the development of alternative institutions like alternative judicial institutions, political conventions and other things that otherwise would not be really allowed in a monarchy. And they effectively freed themselves, so to speak, before the hostilities broke out. And in fact, if you tell the story that way, the war that took place between the colonists and the British was actually the counter revolution. It was the attempt by the British to seize back what they thought was rightfully theirs. After the Declaration of Independence took place. So in a way, there's a real need to, I think, recover some of the histories of.

"Just like all the complications and complexities however with kyle shanahan cell. He doesn't marvelous job simplifying the game for his quarterback our mind you are mind all y'all jimmy g. leaves the nfl in yet. Meaning jimmy receiver yards after catch. Meaning jimmy jeez receivers. They actually do more work than jimmy does. Jimmy d throws a dump all pass or check out with that receivers run run run further minimum. What it means is this that does shorter. Routes they do sorta rows and kyle shanahan does a very good job of making for easier completions at a minimum. We can deduce get because they are run based team plex passes. You're going to be greater. Media stopped doing the same listening to. You know what i'm saying is it's cowshed hands simplifies as often for quarterbacks regardless of how good they are if rookie quarterback's biggest struggle is complexity of defense is in kyle shanahan biggest strength is simplification of offenses. It's a great combination for trae lands to go ahead and start right away. Great great point. That is a marriage made in heaven and you know. Also the mayor's made in heaven the fact that the general manager john lynch and cal shanahan on the same page lockstep. That's a problem for you if you jimmy g. Think about this what should they do. What tremendous story last. I say you let them sit on the bench. Make sure that processor can process this. Is you know when you just keep rolling them into situations that practice when a bullet start live and you wanna make sure to. He's understanding this. You learn so much from the nfl game playing it but close second is being right there and going through the mental process the mental reps. That's why tom brady. Who sat down in year one. You could just go through the list of people who sat down peyton. Manning didn't sit down and like you said that processor was getting lit up. But that's not what's going to happen here. They're not gonna listen to me. I've been trying to tell them all along. Sit them do. If he's so special it will shine through. But i'm gonna tell you what's really going to happen. I is already a current as the hype. This is how it go. you start here. And he's activism descriptions and descriptors tremendous trailers and then they let go they let their run. And that's going to be an off season but these bullets are alive so then also you're going to hear like a cow shanahan come out and say oh. Wait a minute. There's temperatures sir brings us down these expectations and chill then. A preseason is gonna start at all they need is a validation that they can sail to the fans because right now they're ready to turn the page on jimmy because jimmy g. you're limited but to his dead cap is two point four million dollars. They look like ooh jimmy. This is a perfect way to say goodbye to you with that dead cap number but until trae lands shows the world not just us in video spying on him. In preseason practices the world sees this on a football field against opponents that he doesn't know what they're doing this won't come to fruition. I'm rooting for trae land. So i hope it does come to fruition but in reality you should let him sit and learn from jimmy mea. I mean i'm not mad at that. Take because i've always said quarterbacks that get to sit and get to learn. They ended up doing better in the long term. It's as though over catapulted forward in their careers lamar jackson he wasn't thrust into starting right away. I don't know if he learned from flacco but at a minimum learned from black holes. Mistakes patrick mahomes wasn't thrust into action right away. Aaron rodgers wasn't the rest into action. Right away tom brady. He wasn't thrust interaction right away. Those are last four. Mvp's in the nfl. Aaron rodgers. tom brady patrick. Mahomes amar jackson and all of them have the privilege of sitting. I so i think you're right but felt was crazy is year-by-year the nfl changes right now. More than ever because it's the most recent year you had to win right. Now why would you wanna have a tray lance who is more physically talented than jimmy. G. is probably healthier than jimmy. G. more capable than jimmy g. but you keep them like. Why are you go by yourself. Because you're going to be that dude. We talked about this. Charles woodson has weekend a great charles and he like you work with. That dude doesn't work with marcellus vernon wiley. Now you're but do. I call them vernon he used to be dude. Okay so let's go back to that. Do you wouldn't go to the store. Not even a store you wouldn't go off melrose in a fresh pair. Kicks have a party that night but not where to kicks party. Why would you go where your creased air force ones. That got scuffed when you walked up and tripped on the stairs when you just bought a fresh pair of kicks you mortgage a little bit of your future by. You can go to any store. You wanted consignment store to a consignment store and so you had to actually trade himself to trade his shoes that you light in order for you to afford the fresh pair of kicks the neither one to consignment stores trading couple first round pigs bought a tray lance and you tell them to sit trey. Got a party tonight. You don't make. Hey boy don't take me back to that mindset. I used to do exactly that but also didn't work. Because i was that dude. Let's talk about this. This is why you don't play trae lands because the only year jimmy g. was able to start from beginning to end what happened. They went to the super bowl. They had lead the fourth quarter and jimmy one. The reason why didn't win that game lobby wanted to about this about that defense. That was second rain. Tim points data typically and gave all those points in the fourth quarter. So here's the thing. If we have jimmy we got him on a books. Twenty six point four million dollars cap it. This season base salary. Twenty four point one million if he gives you a super bowl pairs that's cheap. There's an argument to keep jimmy g. around in the same row. There's argument to say put trae lance out there. But here's the problem with that argument. Josh sallee it'd be p. Candidate how do you look rookie year. Bus sam darnold talent coming out of college rookie year. I look a second mitchell. Trubisky causing wish. Oh boy. how do you look as rookie year. What about jared goff like number one pick not trae last number one pick point being. There's arguments on both sides of state chips all in. It seems like they're to go with. There's a small strength to really want a small strengthen argument to really want to start trae land from the small strengthen argument. that's often overlooked. I who games this season against the detroit lions and against the philadelphia. Eagles is not just about who you're playing. But who is the people you're being compared to trae. So they're going to be compare to aaron rodgers on opening weekend. What is it. September twelfth i believe is the opening. Sunday or yeah. She'll be september twelve compared aaron rodgers. And he's going to be compared to the person on the other side of the field. If you're trae lance please compare me to jared goff just kennedy golladay. Compare me to if you're trae lance please compare me to jalen hurts led by knicks and devante smith who have missed the three weeks prior off and mc l. injury that is currently recovering from. Please compare me to them. Furthermore oma first two games are on the road. So i can't even get booed if i struggle. It's a perfect time to start a rookie quarterback in there ever was a time man..

alma mater and educational specialist degree in administration from Wayne State University and a PhD in educational leadership from Oakland university he has a mall covers not long after that doctor Cheney became the principal of his alma mater sterling heights high school today Dr center serves as a superintendent for the Rochester community school district where he provides executive leadership for thirteen elementary schools four middle schools three comprehensive high schools and the caring steps childcare center that's a lot so doctor share welcome to caring for kids thank you Larry it's a pleasure to be here yes it's great to see you and are looking forward to seeing you at our summit and some of our other events so thought it was important to get a leader of your stature in the community like Rochester to talk about some of the things are going on in your schools so that so that hopefully we can help some people and and direct them in in ways that maybe they wonder so first of all I want to start out telling us a little bit about the school system Rogers I mention the schools in the numbers but tell us a little bit about the school district sure so we we ARE Rochester community schools and people may not realize it but were about sixty six square miles it's a large system almost fifteen thousand kids and we serve kids from zero through twenty six years old including adult special education students we have a wide range of services I am I am blessed to work with the staff of people it includes amazing teachers administrators social workers psychologists just entire community that's committed to their children in one of the things I was wondering is because just the other day I was reading the Grosse Pointe I live in Grosse Pointe I was reading the Grosse Pointe news in that is there was an article about having to maybe close some elementary schools in so that obviously would tell me that maybe there's not as many kids as is that also the type of trend and Rochester to haven't you seen that well we we pay really really close attention to enrollment trends as Michigan's our per pupil funding system one of the things that we found him in Rochester those were growing slightly and I and I think part of that if you talk to a municipal leaders will tell you that that's because the value of the public education system the value that people place on our system so I think Michigan as a whole we're losing a Roman that's that's due to our birth rate right right where we're lucky enough in Rochester to be just be slightly growing well that's good that's great news so as you well know and hopefully our listeners who listen every month no that the foundation has a focus on mental health one of our five focus areas in in one of the reasons I really wanted to have you on the the show is to talk about your schools from grade school maybe middle school and certainly high school are are you seen more mental health behavioral health issues with students well we we certainly are and and some of them are severe we've we have been not immune to tragedy we've we've experienced suicides including middle school and high school and we've had we've had certainly had some mental health crisis we have had students that we've lost to addiction he even their diction probably started when they're with us and they they passed away after the graduation but none the less or a member of our community and we have seen an increase in depression anxiety addiction and suicidal ideation so it is a crisis well that that's one of the that is the main reason it's a focus area of ours at the foundation and in are you see sort of alluded to a little bit of some of the trends but are you seeing trends that that maybe they can lead all of us to helping this crisis meaning is it is that social media is it early experimentation with drugs and what what trends if any are you seen I think the I think the cause remains to be seen as you know we anecdotally like to say it's social media or maybe what's going on in the greater media in terms of movies and entertainment but I think it's just a it probably has factors that are that are based in in in all of those things that the positive thing that I see a particular in our communities of people that love their children and want to do the very best by them the community does ink the challenge that we all have is removing the stigma and trying to figure out how to collaborate together in a way that's that's efficient productive so we can we can reach the most amount of kids yes and and I also come to learn that superintendents like yourself in in districts are are trying to educate teachers a bit more on how to handle behavioral issues in the classroom because they were like more always trained to do that correct correct we're we're very fortunate again I have a I have a a team of of behavior list including psychologists social workers and counselors that work learning consultants that work good together with our teachers to help them with that behavior management and were actually even taking it a step further now we're working with our PTA to work on things like mindfulness and and teaching kids how to be present and how to handle their stress or anxiety before it becomes a problem the other thing that we're working on a really hard is to to remove the stigma and make sure that kids know they can ask for help when they need it and we're talking with doctor Robert Shane superintended the Rochester community school district in on that point we were now partnering with Michigan State University and the of the recent meeting that you were involved in that was in Crain's Detroit business there was some people from Michigan state and what they're telling us is that the generation of of college kids now I guess they're caught their generation Z. are much more able to talk about their behavioral or or stress issues then maybe my generation and so are you seeing that in in high school or even in a middle school that if I have an issue M. I. more willing to keep it to myself or do you see more kids talking about what's going on in their lives I I do see more more openness about it I I still think there's a stigma particularly with addiction and that I'm not sure it's the kids problem I might be an adult yeah and that's something that we're working really hard to to get through into it to get to the positive end of that you know when I when I think about the future M. I don't I don't despair when I look at our students in school and I visit schools I have a I have a tremendous amount of hope because of what you just talked about right I see I see a lot of love amongst them I see a lot of cooperation the challenge that I see is we adults have to figure out how to channel that and get them in the right place if they do need intervention right and that's that's something that we're working diligently to want to make sure the man up wish that leads me to a question I wanted to ask that I think could be very helpful to our listeners prickly grandparents and parents that as a marine as a superintendent as a former principal what if a parent things their child in any grade level is having issues do you have any advice to give them that that you might have learned over the years that could be helpful yeah I think the most important thing is it young when a child is showing signs of struggling or that they say they are struggling that we don't panic that that we we assure them that things are going to be OK then we get them center mansion and I think we also have to rely on our community under the resources in our community I I can tell you that if someone calls our counselors or social workers the kids principal kids teachers they're gonna they're gonna act quickly to make sure that there's intervention for that child the thing that we see is a challenge is people asking for that identifying it right and again I don't I don't know that it's such that it's there might be more of an adult problem there is a child problem and and we've got to be make sure making sure that were really really observing what's going on and if we see something that needs intervention let's go ahead and do it and not act like it's in advance let's act like it's just like it is a strong thing we do on a daily basis to make sure that the well being of our kids are taking care of command treated more like a disease than maybe in the past the stigmas has produced yeah I think so I think if if we really believe that it's a disease and we believe that it's it's not a condition of poor poor judgment that we need to we need to put our money where our mouth is and and act like that and not not cast a stigma upon it but but reach out a helping hand one of the things that we've done in Rochester we just recently put together a social emotional task force and what asset task force to do is to go out and find the best mental health comprehensive K. twelve mental health benchmark they can find in the nation and then we'll bring it back to it to our organization and try to replicate and so taking the initiative to be proactive and and helping kids I think it needs it needs to be more of a more of a routine just like we would if we had a child with a literacy issue we would we would offer intervention and we've got a missed make sure as a community that were were addressing a like that sure and so mentioned earlier on that the foundation has a focus area of mental health and I spent a lot of time talking to leaders like yourself and so one of the questions I wanted to ask is what can our foundation do do more of to help superintendents teachers parents in this behavioral health crisis well one of the things that you date you've done for us already and I think that you're you're doing a tremendous public service for the tire listening area southeast Michigan is is to raise awareness and then intent then to encourage collaboration even when I when I was able to participate to with the event that you described earlier in it was an opportunity for me to meet people that have already connected well and they're able to bring those resources to our school district so I I think that networking is incredibly important I think the communication and the removing of the statement talking about it as much as we can is is critically important as well and I think I had a meeting with my German today Matt Friedman I think because of that meeting that we had you met the Daniels family we did didn't can recently talk in Rochester we did we have we have a chamber of commerce event every year it's called a community outlook breakfast and usually at the press conference it's usually good news right Riley announced that world running ability around old Graham right I really thought long and hard about it this year and we decided that we are going to announce the the our social emotional task force the launching of it at that event and we're able to to contact Ken Daniels and he was able to to help us make that announcement and if you haven't heard can Daniel story it's got wrenching right it's it's so moving and we we so much appreciate that that his courage to come out and help us the launch that a valuable thank you that that makes me feel really good because the Jamie Daniels foundation can son Jamie who died of an opioid overdose is is a component of our foundation and we're helping can raise awareness raise money eventually want he wants to have the Jamie Daniels long term recovery center somewhere in southeastern Michigan and so those connections tell me that connecting people can really do some good work so anything you want to add about the what's going on in the Rochester school system well I would like to say it's it's graduation CNM prom a lot of exciting stuff happening kids transitioning but it's also an opportunity for us adults to make sure we're making sure our kids are making good and safe choices and and avoiding things like drugs and alcohol in it in a in a way that can be damaging absolutely well thank you.

"Forty five minutes of playing defensive of against the world's best team to me is not an egregious error reassess at halftime came out more attacking. I just don't I just don't understand why that's unusual. The people hate him decided. Yeah but once upon a time there was he had this thing about him where he could sit in a little block and then he would cut you open open and where was it but I also heard this. Also he didn't have a center for. Yeah he's he doesn't have those players but again even even rash for he was able to do something with Cochran rash for that day against KLOPP and get the goals any needed. I different Liverpool today. It's the best team in the world and it's not close okay. So all right. Well I'm not trying to convince you I didn't realize I actually thought we'd have. I thought you'd be a little bit closer to me and how I saw the gamble. No I'm I'm just not ready. Look here's what I'll say like because I know the majority agree with you on this like I said I wouldn't think so the way people feel about Marino I soon I see the things people are saying about him. I've just grown. I feel like this is just too reactionary for me to hate this guy so early on his and I asked you to you do one thing stop seeing hate. Hit The guy that is ridiculous. I in fact his Internet version of his team. I absolutely love it. I'm saying he's been the subject subject of mockery for a for a while. And you know what I said myself. It's being unfair. But we his his just his attitude towards the game now is not in sync with the trends of the game right now and so what. If he's noticing some people say well it. The fact is the problem with him. Be Noticing. Because it's not working anymore and here's what I will say if there is a day then when I agree with that I will say that lay on I will not just universally love him or however it is that I I don't I don't but I'm just saying that like this amount of time coming off of this game against that opponent like it just felt like I I read. Maybe it's because I read Nick Miller's piece at ESPN NFC where he just crushes him for decisions made in this game against Liverpool. And like I just feel like nick. This guy has been there for such a short amount of time. And you want to wait until he's played a team. Maybe as good as any primarily team we've ever seen potentially and you WanNa wait for that moment to crushingly I think he has failed with Tottenham. I will say it but I just don't believe that it's fair to say that yet. What I'm seeing the Games when way is on a meeting people who Andrew Drew Games before this were calling were saying this is this is late stage Marino already? Okay we gotta move all right. We'll move on to Manchester Chester city. And really there's not a ton to say about when Manchester City beats up on Asamoah when six one. There's a bit in the mail bag. We gotta discuss okay The the only things I want to say about it well. I'll get Sergio Aguire on a SEC. Because he's he's incredible but also want to talk about Kevin Debrecen real quickly. Because I say all the time that there there are different types of assists not every assist is created equal and he in my mind continues to be the king of the true goal scoring assist. Do you handle the one ball. He Played Gabriel J. Zeus were all Jay Z's has to do is just walk into it and put it in the net. I feel like no one. Does it more than Debrecen. He's is incredible at it. And it's it's really really fun to watch when he was the ball to the back post right right hand technically across. But I think it's a new type across. He saw aw accurate coaches and in the past and even managers who go on. TV Andrew would say he's done well. He's just drilled it into that corridor of uncertainty between goalkeeper and last defender put. It seems much more. It seems less heat and hope than in previous generations. It's like he's actually actively picking someone out any the as. Oh Yeah but there's degree of difficulty and the the regularity which with which he does. It is just stunning and today I mean the weekend was set up for him. Yesterday was set up from to go wild and he didn't he didn't know he was great but really it was raptured into heaven. I've heard people say that before But really the story of this game is well. The Positive Story of this game is Sergio. Aguayo hat trick. He now becomes the Primer League's all-time foreign born player liar In terms of goals scored passing and now causing people to start debating whether or not he is the greatest striker in the history of the League. I won't say the whole first division but will say in the primarily era. Yeah and you know his numbers on his level of consistency over a number of seasons. Means if you're being fair gets in ahead of of Luis Suarez or someone of that and I have no qualms without whatsoever now now. It was interesting I read Mark Ogden. who was kind of saying well? He doesn't get the credit he deserved. And we've talked about that before. He's only made one the EP l.. All eleven and that wasn't until twenty eighteen I mean. How many great years did you have before that? Right and Marikina goes the angle of you know. We'll why is this the case he's he he wrote. This does not seek publicity or use the media to his advantage. I'm playing for city. has also impacted on a state has beyond the United Liverpool and Arsenal Are Much bigger clubs on a global scale and city and Kamar Command far greater media. Attention the also fire deeper reservoirs of supporters who help raise the profile of their star players. It's so true. I mean if you're looking at the clubs in the top flight right now. They're Arsenal Manchester. United unlivable historically with deep fan bases around the world and that does make a difference but also I think from my point of view why I think of Anri. I'll think of shearer before him is because with the city he project we're all the money came in there. Was this totally unfair. In my view view of well they paid all this money. He's doing what he's supposed to do I. I don't think it's your right but it's wrong for me to think that way. Not Wrong for me. To think city are what they are because of money but wrong for me to just expect him like it shouldn't diminish his talent or ability but I think you're right in that that perception exists and it's why he doesn't necessarily receive the athletes because has when when he slashed as a team. Do something well. I almost feel like there's a a general boredom with it because because like you said it's just what is expected expected. If you're going to do the things and put a lineup out there that they have. This is what you're supposed to be doing. Yeah and and and and any kind of thing or any kind of piece of art that's described as a project. Are you know some kind of long term plan is kind of diminished. It's not not organic. We don't think of it in the same way as we think of other teams and that's probably correct put. It should not take away from what Sergio Guero has done. There had been big transfers was coming to clubs with lots of money Mataya Kashmir and. I'm looking at you at early stage Chelsea and what happened there. Nothing Yeah Mark. Ogden said in that article that if Aguayo had done this while wearing read the perception of him would be completely different. That's fair ops. Probably true his goals per minute scores a goal in the premier league once every hundred six minutes that is of all players who have come through the League who have scored at least twenty goals that is by far by far the best scoring rate. Harry Kane is second at one hundred twenty one minutes per goal and then on one hundred twenty two. He still has eighty five odd to get close to shearer. Well yes that's I mean what's that that's another another three seasons worth. He's going to be thirty four. We'll catch what is Wayne Rooney at two eight zero eight Andy Cole. At one eight seven. So he's going on Lampert at one seventy seven so he's going to go past Andy Colour would imagine look Lampard for midfielder. Yeah right up yeah always arriving late. It's just it's the consistency from Guero more than twenty twenty goals in six of his eight seasons. So maybe there's a boredom with that too like he never has this kind of like forty goal season but he never sinks below like fifteen. He's just kind of like solid every single year. I think the fact you don't hear him speak very much at all. It is is a thing like Alan Shearer in the midst of the Blackburn days as Mike in front of his face after again Newcastle. The same a guero. Not so much. He leaves a kind of A. If you saw the the Amazon Prime Documentary Chan City. They cleaned up a closeted life. It's not he's not out in a boat that much. He certainly not like autumn. Mindy putting pictures in the Mur looked like a Halloween costume. Assume he thought he look Sean. Bruin put the the lyrics from crazy town. Coal Milady Qom Qom Malate sock. Because he didn't look like a guy from crazy Yeah let's stay with this game for sack because I know you've had some thoughts on Danny drink water. I was monitoring your twitter account or the show's account as this game was transpired. Inspired both okay. It seemed like you WanNa get some things off your chest about them but I I feel bad for him first of all because the the first three goals that ushered the people out of Villa Park were you know he was at fault. You could pick fought with them in nearly all of them and in one of them he registered an assist. I think it was Myers. His second goal where where you try to turn in the box look. was anybody going to go in there. And Stop City in that form. Maybe not but just that Dean Smith Myth. You know his comments. This isn't a gamble. How can you expect a guy who has not played any minutes in almost two years to come in and and make an impact against a downhill city is just oh my God? I mean everyone saw this coming a couldn't believe when he was starting now again. What what options did did they really have? Not a ton but even still the way he said it up Connor Horon not the most defensive of midfielders and drink drinkwater beside each other screening. Back four and trying to stay compact no and we know the results were simply what was jarring was him trying to track Brana. You'll gassed debris with breezing by him and it just goes to show his lack of games. I mean things are getting kind of hot and hot and steamy therefore Dean Smith at the park Some other quick hits before we take a quick break here for Arsenal more or frustration. Another one one that they might have been fortunate to have any play down a man for in.

"It stopped being magic. I don't even remember Franken. It's interesting to me because I've been in that same situation. Where AH YOU KNOW I? I worked in print journalism. But my you know I've been a victim of downsizing essentially with our publication shuttered. My job just was gone away. I saw your blog actually where you sort of chronicle that interim period but yes. Oh yes my little candies corner that I've I've that's some good research. I'm impressed oppressed and let it go. But it was an interesting period. What did you get out of that? Well I mean I work on this podcast I also work as a freelance writer on the side and I do a lot a lot of different stuff and so it it Resonated with you. I'm like Oh yeah. She's doing projects for municipal services. My first my first thing after after I'd gotten left and I'd never been let go by the way which is rare in that business. I'd never had that experience was that I will say in credit to credit it to the managers at greater media. The decision was made back in Boston. We don't want to do this morning. Show and the local folks executed that decision with compassion. Even to the point were the day that I came into. Sign my exit agreement. He took me to breakfast. General Manager I appreciate it thanks. That was nice it was. I'm sure you've got a Severance you know if it was it was something but it was. It was not I was not ready to not be making money. Sure and I was not mentally ready to not be doing that. Whereas now I'm at a point where I'm very ready to step away. So I was more. Just knocked off my moorings but so that first job that I did for municipal services was back like my TV reporting days. So I found okay the brain still there can right and then I did a bunch of projects for Beaumont Hospitals Cancer Center Cancer Cancer programs and then that dovetailed into a nice chance meeting with my former general manager of the one that brought me back to WNYC in nineteen ninety. Nine is a lovely man. Steve Schramm who was the general manager of Michigan Radio. Yeah Yeah Yeah. So that's how I wound up in public radio right so that was twenty twelve. When you caught on with if Michigan Radio previously you had been exclusively on the commercial radio side I had so? What was that transition like terrifying? Why such smart smart? Smart people are part of that team. And even though I've been doing it for decades you know you're coming in as I saw the as the new kid who had all this commercial experience. But what Steve wanted was a bit more of a commercial sound to stateside. He said don't sound sound like the Saturday night live. NPR stateside an existing program. It had been a program for a while under a couple of host todd. Mont had done it and charity Naby. Abby had done it but it had been shelved and Steve had been thinking about I want to revive a local produce locally produced program that focuses on Michigan so so he been toying with who would be the person and so they took it off the shelf when he and I cross paths. I did an audition and IT FIT I. I had to grow in my own mind signed to the person that could run with this team because they're pretty amazing on the other hand. I'm in the business because public radio When I will cat out of College College I was working for the American Cancer Society? I was a health educator and I was driving to and from the office and coming home I would never missed this show on John W dt called all things considered and that was back in nineteen seventy seven seventy eight and then oh my goodness morning version. It's morning edition so I would that that pulled me into how magical radio could be in radio. Storytelling could be. Yeah so I felt like I was home beyond the obvious things you know. Commercial radio has Advertisements Commercials Public Radio Does Not underwriting drives and fundraising so beyond those obvious things. How are the two formats different? Well it it for me Having been in a world where I'd been told you have sixty seconds to do headlines weather sports traffic reports to traffic to accidents. That's all you can do. And you have sixty seconds or you have a minute fifteen to do it all to come into an environment where I I can do. Eighteen minutes for a full segment interview. If it's worth it we'll go eighteen minutes that is like the whole section of the paper instead of one little column in the front page page of the paper and So that has been you walk away satisfied. You don't walk away thinking oh I left so much that we weren't able to get to it's great to walk away satisfied So that's that's to me the biggest thing in public radio you have a place to be able to create more room and time is is it a little harder order more work Hoya. Yeah I will say that These seven years It's a different kind of work about. I have worked very very hard instead out of being in the news truck like I was for so many years when I was at UPN fifty was fox. Fifty first and then Fox left and wkbd and we went to UPN eventually eventually. But I was on the ten o'clock news on Channel Fifty so as opposed to rolling around in the news truck looking for where. You're going to do that. Nights live shot. This is more. This is a a lot of homework to and I could be at home in my. PJ's so there is that but reading because you have to be up on everything. Yeah and I get prep material for every every interview but I do five to eight interviews day right. I heard you say that a prep. That's how much like you get some help. Though from your producers the producers will yeah so let's just say I'm going to interview somebody. Who's a tech entrepreneur? Who's just gotten a lot of seed money to start a terrific new? AIP I company in Ann Arbor. I will have gotten a form that tells me what the focus is that we want to get to maybe talk about what kinds of developments. They're doing an AI. And also Oh yeah and also what's the what's the ecosystem. What's for entrepreneurs so in Michigan so that might be the pig there will be a pre interview notes because one of our interns have pre interviewed? The person most likely there will might there might be some links for Meter read so stories that had been written about them and sometimes people will. Do you few who suggested questions. Because they like to get creative to and and and it's great for me to see an angle that I hadn't thought of but then ultimately I gotTa Digest all of that I craft all the leads leads and I- craft the the questions that That you hear and the lead writing is is an art because you wanna make it something that grabs you. That isn't too long. Helps people understand what it's about so I do a lot of that writing. Who are some of your favorite like interviewer people people in the business? Like do you try to emulate anybody. Oh interview guests like actual interviewers people who are asking the questions. You know it's interesting. I dive in and out and especially especially as I'm driving home so I might be listening to MSNBC OR CNN. Do I listen to a lot of radio interviews. I don't you know why because it's coals to Newcastle. So when I'm driving home on probably listening to The Broadway show. I'm listening to radio classics. So whom John you've had enough talk. I kinda have my brain just pooped and it knows it's going to be doing work at home so I've got my playlist going with music so I tend to not do a lot but out here like I happened to really like Nicole Wallace on MSNBC. Because I appreciate how she's made this transition into TV journalism and she's got a lot of she's very every natural well Susan Stamford. I mean. Going right back Terry. Gross to grow. She's the alleged Diane ream because of the I. I liked that tone of civility and that any point of view is welcome. And that's really what we try to do too. And actually I had the pleasure of sitting down and interviewing her about her most recent book about her husband's passing and and Interesting yes and she has people who adore her. We did it at Hill Auditorium and it was full of adoring actually not hill. I think it was even bigger than that. I forget we were in somewhere on campus and she has people that adore her and for good reason so people like that that are tick Hewlett a respectful. I cannot stand Dan shouting I cannot people shouting at each other your persona on stateside. You come across as very friendly and approachable. Maybe that's from your time on and I see and it's who I am. I'm not aggressive interviewer. WHO's GonNa pick you up and slam you wall? That's I just I that's not me and it never has been right but at the same time you know you've interviewed lots of politicians. Governors presidential candidates You recently had Justin Amash. The less Michigan and Congressman Tea Party member who just defected from the Republican Party. Claret his declaration of Independence on independence. Day Yeah so I mean. We're in this hyper hyper. Partisan political era I mean is. Is it tough to do those kind of interviews now. I try to step back and I'm not there to carry water for listeners. Who are unhappy that we're talking to whomever or for the person I'm there to ask the questions to let them put their ideas out there so that everyone listening can can say? Here's a here's a set of ideas you decide for yourself if you agree or disagree like I've noticed with many of the social media comments with Justin. The Mosh are I hate the kinds of things that he was doing when he was before it was the Freedom Caucus. It was tea party and it was people's people will say I disagree disagree with decisions. He made but I respect what he did here. Putting the country before the Party and stepping away. So you see that and I'll get people going. What did you ask Ask that because it isn't my I'm not I don't see myself as the one to smack them around. We will ask and ask again if somebody won't give straight answer. There are a lot of politicians audrey good at not answering questions I felt he answered directly thoughtfully and his his message was an interesting one of we need to look at each other and the I we need to stop demonizing each other for believing or not believing different things and he said we need to love each other a little more. which I don't think is a message in nineteen Meghan re piano the star of the women's World Cup in the US national team just said yes victory. Yeah isn't that interesting. Love to be a fly on the wall with coffee between the two of those people. Well you know I have this little thing that I do. After I've had an interesting guest et al come in and I'll go. There's another one for the Dream Dinner Party and that's what I'll do people that that I find really interesting and I just personally connect with and I agree. Wouldn't it be great to get people together of a lot of different backgrounds and serves some wine and some good food and just see what the conversations like a great idea for for podcast show or sure. Yeah the Dream Dinner Party so who are a few people that would be in that party. Wow let's see I'm GonNa Start and these are guests that I've had had on stateside that I'm just always light up when I see their names. Charlie Ballard Michigan State University economist.

Here's God bless them. Anyway that's my story of the my voice and I wanna be. I WanNa thank sister borough mayor for moving me to the Altos Holler all right. So Cynthia Cynthia you announced your plans for retirement of course after forty plus years last month. So I'm just curious what's it like. What's it been like since then? Is it exciting to kind of see the end of the IT. Is You know why because it's just time it I I I had in my mind that I wanted to cross the tape. run-through do the marathon. Say I've been on the air in this town for forty years and this is the year I get to do it and it felt right. I I've been thinking about it when the right time. And All the Little Cherries in the slot machine lined up bing bing bing it's time and it and it was predicated when I was visiting our cottage in Ireland Oakland for the last twenty two years. We've had a little cottage in West Cork in Ireland. Because long story but I I married the permanent souvenir of my junior year in Ireland. When I was in college I met local fellow and so I've had ties to county cork since I met him in? Nineteen seventy three. And we've been married since nineteen seventy six so we've Irish yourself. Have some Irish blood as well as some Spanish blood so I'm mice interesting. Mix zesty yeah and for twenty two years that we've had that cottage you go for two weeks you go for three weeks you get there and you're so happy to be there immediately. The clocks running out so this last trip in May got on the plane on the Saturday and I just hated leaving family and close close friends. Who feel like family there? were feel like part of the community in that country village in West Cork and I just thought you know what I'm ready. I'm ready I. I don't WANNA leave after two weeks and I want to be able to go for extended spells while I still have my health and that's something you realize and you're still pretty young. I'm looking at St Five. You're young looking sixteen. Thank you very much. I'm proud of it. I've realized why hide it. My strategy is just a butter. You up there you go. Yeah Yeah No. Thank you but Now so I am healthy touch wood. I'm grateful for that. So let's get some travel in and enjoy that time while I can because we all know. Someday you'RE GONNA have a bad phone call. Yeah Yeah Yeah so forty plus years in the broadcast news business here in Detroit you had stints at WNYC wd X. W. I am juicy you were on TV wkbd and I started at w. m jozy praise. Fm I started on Christian radio station. Oh my goodness. Am to eight am six mornings earnings a week for one hundred and eighty bucks a week was that was at all talk redoing music. I was doing newscast that they buried in the middle of the night. That's how I got started. was they just needed a warm body body to fulfil their FCC requirements and they would do ten minutes of news at two three four and five so they would pack it all in overnight so they could you keep running the the religious broadcasters like Jerry Falwell During the day you're making the money that's where the money was not in doing newscasts so they they hired someone like me for one hundred and eighty bucks a week and I'm grateful because I got to start my career in Detroit and then I went to WNYC interesting interesting so longtime in broadcast business. Lot of changes the timing talk about that what what's changed broadcast media over that time. Well certainly I've seen. I'll talk about radio because that's where my most of my time I was. I was in TV news as well as an anchor and reporter for years. But let's talk about radio. The big the big huge conglomerates that own a bunch of stations. It's and it's so bizarre journal Lear Channel when I worked exactly I mean. WNYC is now part of the iheartradio clear channel empire but when I started it was Josephson. Broadcasting was the family company so all those intimate family companies have been absorbed into big huge which companies where your competition is getting coffee next to you in the coffee machine room. That's what's weird so when we went to all right so we we went from. WNYC TO MAGIC W MDC so. He left Harper Jim. Harper's contract was up. He felt he wanted to have a chance to work for a more intimate family company. So we left altogether. We went with him and went to work for greater media. A greater media in Royal Oak Township owned one zero five one which had been and a number of things including initially W Q r s classical but they own. WCs Ex and they own W Rif so here we all all are in the same building. So I'm saying hi drew and Mike There are competition we were saying. Hi to Jay Jay and Lynn there the competition. We're all like you know in line for the bathroom and getting coffee coffee. That is that is odd. So you're in the same family but you're still trying to beat the pants off each other and you know I keep reading that that A hearing that commercial radio is really like a rough business nowadays like it's just very volatile and things change all the time. Well what happened that that we saw over over the course of our time at magic. And so if you just kind of go back for those who may not have heard was used to be the breakfast club Jim. Harper's breakfast club on WNYC and then that name was service March so we couldn't take two magic so it was Jim Harper in the magic morning show And it was kind of a a group of us and we could we talk about our lives. We would talk about anything we wanted and people loved it and Jim Always said we are kind of like the neighbors and let everybody. The in. The car is going to work or taking the kids to school where the neighbors and we're talking over that electronic picket fence about stuff with you and the reliability amazes me still the the followers that The wonderful people that we call it the magic family and it felt like that so we would talk kind of like friends kind of shows about nothing but we would do that and and we had the freedom to talk as much as we want it but that was when ratings books were going on so people would you'd get a ratings book from arbitron and you would write in. You're listening and so you might say I listened to Jim Harper magic morning show and And write it all in well. There were stations. That said that's not fair. Our listeners aren't getting. I'm kind of doing this in broad strokes but what it ended in is we got rid of the the little books and people started. They started using meters. There's so meters record what you do not what you say you do. So you may put Ditto marks from six to ten. I'm listening to Jim Harper in the magic morning show. I'm just kind of giving for example and that would be reflected in the ratings meters record what you do. So let's say you hear something you don't like and you punch out. It says meter number five left you you can graph it and you know that they left it news. Oh well you know what. Let's cut back on the news by the way. No let's eliminate news but not give them any reason to punch away way and let's keep the talk down. Let's keep the talk down. So by the end of our time at greater media and magic we had gone from having extended conversations stations about things to we got I think four brakes were. It could be ninety seconds to no more than two minutes well so it it's Muslim it's it's all about keep the music helped to keep the music coming and what I few view is it takes away that local field because in a lot of cases these big companies can have somebody voice tracking who lives. Who knows where? But they're able to knock out voice tracks for you know the mid day show in six markets right and of course a lot of these stations. The the music nick programming is like computer generated totally in Des Moines or someplace consultants and they decide A.. And so people who think that they're going to go in at like the good old days is Hi I'm old enough to remember listening to Ab ex and riff when AOR album oriented rock was just beginning. People could play whatever they wanted they could explore. Well I'm I'm old enough to remember when you could actually call into in riff or a B X and make a request and wait a little while and you'd hear you'd hear it and I might say hey span wanted to hear this. Hey here's this is for you. I know it is except on on on Satellite Radio yes. Yeah you can call in Flash Phelps on sixty six hundred serious and he. We'll take you and we'll talk to you on the phone so your job was eliminated effectively at. WM Naji Yeah. They decided they didn't want to a pricey talk hockey morning. Show they that when they switched over to because now it's one of five point one. Now it's it's throwback hip hop. It's old school hip Ben through so many formats. There was sports for a wild wild. There was something when we left in..

"And I think that's why. We had such a great relationship because he really saw that everybody in the business. Everybody told me this will never work. And take show from new. York and rebroadcast at an La. It'll never work. And I went. He's unique. He's different now now now it won't work and I went back to Howard and I said you know. Everybody's telling me and he goes Bob Look. You've got a mayor in L.. A. That people think is nuts. We have a mayor of New York that thinks people think they're nuts. You got a boss pisses you off. Everybody's got boss pisses them off. You hear a funny story. It's the same you know. It's New York. It's funny in La Trust me. I can do this that. Really paved the road for his whole expansion I mean because he was a regionalized at that right lane, and you're the first person that take a chance to put on a completely different region right, and it was the greatest fifteen year. Right of my career on real did weatherly or trip ever come to you and kind of acknowledge that I understand? They had Kevin and bean which? I understand their position. Sure he would have been so disruptive to what they were doing. Yeah, you know it wouldn't fit at all because they would would've told him. You're playing for records and our. That wasn't Howard. Is You bought how when you bought? Howard you got Howard, which means? When when magic as you know diagnosed with AIDS, and then he does four days of AIDS jokes about Magic Johnson. You might basically have riots right in front of our radio station when Selena gets shot and he starts doing jokes about that and we have the National Hispanic Media Coalition. Go against us. How do you deal with all that as general manager? With a lot of support. and. You have to learn very quickly that. Your control is limited. You know, and so that was the whole. It started before we got him, but that was the editing process. So then we had an editor for our show, so they had an editor back there. We at an editor here, okay? Have, right out shops and stuff out we had to. How did Howard take to that co? Not Well not well. Would he call you personally you? Call me on the air and personally. Do you just have to let it roll off, I just had well. Here's the one thing. I realized very early on. You cannot be combative with Howard. Because, I don't know if the real Howard is the on air, guy or the off air guy but. You know I will tell you when I went to hire him, and we had that meeting in New York. He's the most introverted person I ever met my life. You know as big as he is five six six, he was hunched over low down sitting on the couch and like a fetal position. He's not. He's not that aggressive. A personality in person would you say in obviously gone through this transformation over the last couple years Do you think he was actually more the person he is now, and he was kind of playing a character before or or somewhere in between I think the radio gave him freedom to be what he wanted to be. because. He didn't feel he was being judged every day and I think he will still talk about the fact that he's very introverted. He wants to stay at home he wants. He's very comfortable inside his house. Did you ever feel I guess disrespected in some of the things that he would say and hot water that he would stick you know. 'cause I understood. That was his stick his Don Buckwald. His agent told me when I started negotiating. He goes thorough people at like Howard. There are people. Don't like Howard. Your job is to find more people at like Howard, the the ones that don't like Howard. It's that simple. and. He's right. That was the thing. Did the success here in La was right away or did it take? Some time took about a year and I took a little over about a year and I'll. But I mean he. Hit the ground running. Those were the days when his plan was to destroy the competition. So I remember savings that he would dawn on an all. Right everybody that was his plan. His plan was. My attack plan is simple. You go in. Who's the kings of the market? You disrupt them immediately. Rick Dees Mark and Brian. You go right after him Jay Thomas Whoever it is, you just target those people and you're constantly beat on 'em. Well it worked Oh. Yeah, so let's go back to ninety three right so you're now back at Calisthenics in. You've convinced him to flip to talk. Let's pick it up there and Sabo right so. Walter Sabo is a consultant. Who's doing live one zero five and New Jersey? and. I forget the Orlando call letters, but it's an FM talk station in Orlando Okay and it's very very successful number one station in the market. Howard in the morning very very successful. So I meet with Walter and He. Is a phenomenal salesperson. And he convinces me that this is the right time to do it, but in order to do it. We need to. Make these personalities following Howard? As. Crazy and as Disruptive as he is, that's the word I use disruptive. Okay, so following Howard. We Hire Ken Ober and we match him with Susan Olsen from the Brady Bunch shirt and over from MTV. Yeah Susan Brady. Following that we have these two guys call the regular guys. People were putting together now. We're just putting shows together. Jackson oversee the program that are not yet not yet not yet. Then we go to. Ricky Rachman. On MTV line then we go to conway and stickler. who were two guys doing a Internet show? This is nineteen. Ninety, four, ninety, five, ninety, four, or doing an Internet show. Nobody even knows what the Internet is. Still Nail right so and then we do mother love. At Night, OH, my Gosh! Followed by rocks, the Rock and roll psychic. who does all this casting alter only? and. He's got this spell that he convinces me. This is the greatest thing in the world. So. We're rolling along. Oh in Kato Kaylin, I mentioned I forgot I forgot the one minor role in their. Kato Kaylin. You're blown up I'm I'm guessing fairmount avenue at this time twenty three million dollars billion radio stations, greater media's really bought into this greater media is rolling the dice okay on their most successful radio station in the in the company. Is this now the most pressure you've ever felt. Absolutely, so we have a press release. Press gathering. Walter says we gotTa do this right? We're GONNA roll out the whole cast. All right and we're going to change the name to real radio. No, not real radio was it was radio could actually get was real radio? and He puts echo behind everything. So, we have this press, really press conference I'd like the Four Seasons Hotel literally. There's every television station every newspaper.

"So, that was my start a my GM career and you. You never looked back. I've never looked. Nominal yeah. What would you say is? The biggest difference between being in management, because you're still certainly responsible for an overall number, so sales is still part. I, as opposed to being a what was the biggest shock for you? While the biggest, the biggest change is you're responsible for everything including the license. Which you know Kayla Sex era? That's a whole different story. But. I mean you just have to? Here's the one thing you have to learn to do. I. Don't think any good general manager. CanNot learn the art of delegation. which is a senior management skillset, so you have to be able, and I was always the sales general manager, and I never wanted to lose my my hands on the sales part of the of the industry because I knew that's what drove the engine, and I was very fortunate to align myself with great programmers and great talent, so if you had the great talent and the Great. Programmers, the sales are working to make the difference. You know it's interesting. He said at the beginning of the podcast that you are sober from twenty one to thirty five. Right when you become general manager thirty five, you start drinking again now. Those were called the The ninety seven cents happy hours. We used to Ha-. So, how long are you there as GM? I was there from. Nineteen eighty to nineteen ninety one. Years the long run. Who owned was greater media all greater media. And then. Norm Patas. which goes back to the original story? Norm Patas calls me from Westwood One And says. I want you to come over and run my radio division, which was pirate radio in Los Angeles. Any W am in New, York and WNYC FM in New York, which gigantic opportunity so Zantac operative dive into this for a second arm is just a huge personality icon icon creator. Greater media was a pretty stable company stable. Corporate I think probably treated you very well. I was treated like a king. We were forty percent of the revenue of the company cheese. Now norm at this point I know were enormous reputation as of today in in looking I've never really worked directly with him, but I think all of us in this industry. No Fair amount you've got to give him his due respect. I mean I really invented syndication as we know it, he'll go as far to claim that he's invented. podcasting I'M GONNA I'll give him that, but he certainly been a big influence and. and well without without norm, there wouldn't be podcast networks. He sought and we'll get into. Yeah, so, what is his reputation? At this point? He's the best in the world. He really is I mean he's a creative genius. I carried a lot of shows on Kayla. That's all we knew each other okay. He took me to a bunch of LAKER Games. Once you know once you sit on the floor. And then they call you and say we're want you to run this twelve hour special. You're not saying no. Norm. has seats literally on the floor next to Jack? Nicholas, right Nicholson Sorry, the Gulf in the actor sometimes confused on Golfing. Fan, but you couldn't ask for better seats at the Lakers dabs his logo, I I love his famous for rolling up his program and he'll get up on his on his feet. Jump Up and down and. Raise his hand with his program and yell at the The refs and the players, and so forth so that's his logo. Is Him holding that that program, so he's a very dynamic Laker fan to say the very least he bleeds. Great Great Guy so you go to work there and pirate in of itself is just a gigantic I mean that station just exploded on the scene here and in La Is Scott Shannon there at that? Also I'm brought in to replace the takeover Scott Shannon's leaving. Okay, we're going to phase two of pirate, which is alternative rock, because pirate kind of hit that crossroads where they didn't, they couldn't make the decision or didn't make the decision between alternative and and yeah hop forty the hair bands. They didn't kind of right we're having. Destroyed a because. They had no idea that this was going to become. What, what those hair bands I mean welcomed the without pirate radio guns, N. Roses I. Don't think would have been anywhere close to guns and I think of Gr and pirate radio like Souness Oh they are. Scott was a genius you know when he came in here and talk about station that disrupted the market in a matter of weeks just within a handful months sow. It was amazing and you guys spent a lot of money. I remember the outdoor. I remember. There was no joke when it came to the marketing and radio station right. So, what is that like? You decide to make that jump, are you? Do you have your daughter's your? Your daughter warned by that point, so yes, my daughter's like five or six. That's a pretty big. You've got a family now yards family. It's a big responsibility, but it was something I always wanted to be. I wanted to be in charge of group I thought that that was the next step. Because I'm one of those people that sets goals and you got is constantly. Move Up and this is. This is a group doing more revenue. Or upside salary rise and IT'S NEW YORK AND LA so. Big that was the the idea was I was overseeing both La and New York. That's a bad never understood that that's how you going back and forth going back and forth MGM Grand Baby, Oh my I remember you telling me the story that was the airline that the MGM casinos owned and was virtually like a were flying private, Florida the an opposite tournament on the other attornal terminal terminal on the other side of lax. So you drove your car up. It's like like fine private. You had like a little sweet cracks idea. They changed the by the time I started flying them. They had changed those planes to like regular. You know, but it was all China. You know four or five mule service to Newark rate just the way we kind of vision lines like these giant Barcalounger types chairs in a one time I flew back, and it was me Joan rivers and her dog. Other time it was me Annie Liebowitz. Oh my Gosh! The photographer and I said to my friend. I Goff. This plane goes down. They're going to name all the celebrities and say some Radio Guy. So. What station was it? New York WNYC FM which was the only country station at the time guy and w any. AM The heritage am radio station? So you have three or four radio stationary three that you're over what kind of revenue or these stations doing at that point well? Ideally would be about forty or forty five million. This was nineteen, ninety, ninety one. Okay, so we're coming out of the first recession. Sheriff also businesses tight, and my job is to resurrect obviously the sales in as well as make four matic changes, if if necessary or changed some programming, but and replace some people, but it's really bring in the revenue. How involved is norm on a day to day with you very much, so I reported the norm, so he was still he had the network at this point all rightly. Dividing his attention between the two right, well I wouldn't say dividing his attention, but.
