A highlight from GENC : Innovation at the Core of Marketing with Alyson Griffin, Head of Marketing at State Farm
"Gen C is the generation of the new Internet. In Gen C, the C stands for crypto, but it also stands for creators, the connected consumer and collectibles, both digital and physical with on -chain provenance. It stands for culture and characters, the ones we play in games and the companion ones that AI is building alongside us. It stands for community and digital citizenship and the new set of transparent and trustless tools being built to govern them. These are the people who were raised on a different philosophy on how they look at money, how they look at identity, how they look at privacy and how they look at the hybrid, digital and physical spaces being built all around us. And finally, how they reimagine their relationships with the communities and companies they interact with. We focus on how brands large and small are building for these audiences. Welcome to Gen C. Avery, I have to play you the new intro that I just made for Gen C. So here it goes. Edge of my seat. All right. So you might've noticed that was me not speaking English, but I am going to Portugal next week. So that was me speaking Portuguese. And how did I do that? Well, both you and I have been experimenting with, Hey, Jen's video translation software that utilizes AI to speak in multiple languages. You added an amazing piece that you put up on LinkedIn the other day. If you speaking Hindi, I don't know if you actually speak Hindi or not. Very limited. Very limited. But I just want to throw this stat out before I want to get your thoughts, which our is old friend, Mr. Beast, 50 % of the people who watch his videos don't speak English. And so what he does is hire voice actors all over the world to be the Mr. Beast in their local areas, because he knows that for him to go as global and get as many views as he needs, he has to be in language. And so what do you think about, Hey, Jen, and some of these new tools that are coming that will allow for video translation that is not only only, audio but as you and I have both been playing with, it also literally changes your mouth movements to be speaking the language that you've selected. Sam, thank you for turning me on to Hey, Jen. My first thought was that I was going to use it to connect my grandparents along because we do have a language barrier. And while I was sad to see that Telugu was not a supported language, I was like, it's okay. I'll do it in Hindi. And I sent it and they actually thought it was real because, you know, not everybody is familiar with powers of AI, especially with this sort of intonation, which is amazing. And then I started playing around with it a little bit more. And I want to call out Hey, Jen, but also 11 Labs, which is the voice translation that is powering all of this. Hey, Jen is sort of bringing that video, but 11 Labs does the audio. And we've been working on a couple of little things with 11 Labs in different capacities. I'm really impressed with what they're building. And it's critical because only 14 % of the world speaks English, yet 59 % of the world's digital content is in English. So if you're a person who doesn't speak English, much less, God forbid, is not literate, then you can't access the amazing, wonderful world of the internet that we all know today. It's a massive thing. I think it's early days. And of course, everybody rightfully so has questions on where is this data going? Who owns it? Who's storing it? Hey, Jen is an LA based company. And 11 Labs has raised from a number of investors, including Andre Sinso. We've done some diligence on them, but I think it's early days. But this technology is insanely powerful for brands, but in the immediate term for content creators. If I was a content creator, I would be using this immediately for my target languages, because it'll expand your reach so much, enable you to connect. And by the way, it's not going to be long before that's happening on demand. In real time, I mean. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, I did the same thing you did. I recorded a video that I translated into French and I sent it to my friend in Paris. And I said, I've been working on my accent. What do you think? And he gets back to me and goes, oh, like, you're really nailing the language, you're really nailing the accent. Like, you've come a long way. I don't speak French. Because the intonation is like you, right? Right, exactly. It's cloning your voice. It sounds like a white person speaking Hindi. Like, there's some things that are colloquialisms that a local person would never say, but it sounds like how you would speak Hindi if you were very good at it. Yes. I will also say what was fascinating to me was Angelique Vendette, who I also sent the video to, responded and say, okay, here's the problem. It's speaking French Canadian. It's not speaking Paris French. And then I had other friends who because I had put it up on Instagram and for the one in Spanish, I had tagged Mexico and I said, can't wait to get back to CDMX. And someone tagged me and said, no, this is speaking European Spanish. This is not speaking Latin American Spanish. So I do think there is like a lot of nuance that still needs to get worked out in it. But just the fact that I could record a 48 second video that people in Paris and people in Mexico didn't recognize that it was AI at first. I thought it was fascinating. I think you hit it exactly, which is, oh, yeah, if I was a content creator, if I was a brand marketer and I was doing shorts, I think this is a perfect way just to get more reach for your content at a 30 to 90 second level, which should be labeled as AI also. Agreed. Definitely. Cross -country transparency, 100 percent. Yeah, we'll talk about that in a second. But I do think that anyone who hasn't played with the page and video translator or there, you can now do it just by uploading a photo and snippets of your voice powered by 11, as you mentioned. So you can actually create yourself saying anything without even having to record a video at this point. You could all do it by text. So it's pretty fascinating. I'm very excited for where this stuff is going, because this is the kind of use case that I think you and I look at this and we're like, this has a very tactical, tangible opportunity. And I think the stat that you just mentioned, only 14 percent speak English, but 60 percent of the content is in English is such a big business opportunity when you really think about that. So, so relevant. Let's pivot from there to a very related topic, which is I don't know if you saw this week, but TikTok has started using AI labeling and Reddit and Reddit. Right. Exactly. For TikTok, anytime you use one of the filters that utilizes AI, now it's going to be labeled as AI. They also are doing auto detection for people who are utilizing AI software and they want anyone who is utilizing AI for their content to have a label on it. I think this is a step in the right direction. I would love all news content also to be labeled like this, because there's a lot of stuff out there. I read an obituary that was driven by AI about a basketball player who had passed away and it said the basketball player is unliving. So that was the way that AI described him being dead, was that he was unliving. And so clearly there's a lot of stuff that needs to get worked out. But from a brand perspective, from a creator perspective, I think that the idea that we should know when things are being modified feels like the right thing. But do you think that affects the creator economy in any way? I think it's similar to how we do hashtag ad, like trust or transparency is key. We just need to be transparent about using these things. I've thought that for quite a while as it relates to Instagram and TikTok filtering because people get unrealistic like body images. I mean, yes, some of this happens in like magazines and photo shoots and all of that stuff it has for a long time. But I'm all about trust or transparency and the digital ecosystem. Agreed. And I also think there's a healthy respect for knowing when someone might be utilizing a tool. It's a productivity tool. It doesn't mean it has to be less entertaining. It doesn't mean it has to be less interesting. I think our enterprise brands, though, we're still at a place where like we can't just use 11 labs like at scale right now. It's not ready yet. It's like a proof of concept. This is how it could be going. And back to what we've talked about before, it's building the muscle for when this really hits scale, we're going to be ready. Correct. And in terms of just going back to Mr. Beast, who has these 13 actors that play him around the world, he said, our team is very actively looking because it's not cheap to do that. And he said, our team is very actively looking. He thought from his perspective and when their research that it's going to be still a couple of years before we actually see it being good enough where he's comfortable. What he said, which was interesting, is they've done some AB testing where they use the voice actor and then they'll use a cloning. And he said every time he does a cloning, people are calling out that something sounds wrong and it distracts them from the content in the video, which I think for someone like him is just really important to make sure it's landing. Totally, totally agree with that. Yeah. All right. Final story before we get to an amazing guest is Crossmint and MasterCard are going deeper together. So Crossmint powered this artist portal that MasterCard released a couple of months ago. It actually brought one hundred thousand people into blockchain. It was primarily based on music and that was also powered by Crossmint. And it seems that Crossmint and MasterCard are getting in bed together even more with an eye toward small business, which I thought was kind of interesting. Just the idea of easy ways when you think of utilizing your MasterCard to pay for something and then thinking about a reward system that can be on chain, that feels like it makes a lot of sense, right? I hit my 10th time at the coffee shop. I get a little NFT that says I'm a 10 timer and maybe that gets me a free coffee later. But this feels like a very natural, easy way for blockchain and brands to get together. And I want to know if you have any thoughts about that. Yeah, well, I love Rodry and the team and of course, Raja and his amazing team at MasterCard and everything that they've done in this space. So recently connected with Raja and he was like, I'm still very bullish on Web3. And one, I love him for saying that because there's so many mixed reactions right now. And it's amazing to hear leaders who continue to invest, continue to launch programs like their startup accelerator and continue to support these sort of Web3 native businesses, massive bands of what Crossmint is doing. And I think that a partnership between a payment processor and a minting tool makes a lot of sense because you're likely going to be paying maybe not thousands of dollars, but a couple bucks for some of these things. And having that super integrated is a great fit. And shout out to MasterCard for continuing to innovate in this space. I see them. I see Visa. I see the banks really continuing to lean in and identify these enterprise use cases that can make their customers both B2C and also B2B customers lives a little bit easier. Well, we have asked Raja to be on the podcast 27 times, so we're going to continue to ask until he shows up. So, Raja, if you're listening, we're coming for you. Avery, after the break, we are going to come back with Allison Griffin from State Farm, a big brain marketing thinker, so excited to hear her perspectives on marketing, on the metaverse, on Web3, on innovation in general, because she's such a great thinker on that. So we will talk to her after the break. Sounds great.

It was revealed during a pre -trial conference this morning on Long Island for the former Manhattan architect who's charged in three of Gilgo the Beach murders and is the prime suspect in a fourth. It was the DNA from the discarded pizza crust that reportedly helped lead to Huerman's arrest in New York City this summer.

More from Bloomberg's Shanali Basak. Back in January the Managed Funds Association had said that the rules of the private funds industry are different than that of the banks. Now there's no sense that the SEC necessarily will bring a case forward but as we've been reporting here that we know that they've really expanded the probe here and the idea of looking at more private funds, hedge funds, private equity firms, Apollo, Blackstone, all facing these same questions when it comes to communication from employees and how the SEC looks at it.

The FTC plans to move forward with its in -house trial against the $69 billion deal after pausing it the over summer. A US appeals court in July denied the agency's bid to stop the merger. The FTC typically drops antitrust challenges when they lose in federal court, but the Commission says public interest warrants a trial to resolve the matter. Microsoft and Activision Blizzard are expected to finalize the largest ever video gaming deal this year, but the FTC challenge will continue even after the companies complete their merger.

"Would you like to get paid to listen to this podcast grab the fountain app for free and get all our badness But earn some sweet satoshis download for free now at fountain FM here in the Republic of bad, Cryptopia We've been talking about the great reset for many years Designed to strip normal citizens of power and privacy the global elite have their eyes set on making themselves Kings and queens of the modern era you and I well were to be serfs And we shall eat bugs and like it, but if the world were to transition to this final dystopian phase How might it take place a book titled the great taking by David Rogers web? provides scenarios in which it might all unfold you might say it's a blueprint for world domination or Oppression we give you our take on the great taking today on our hey We can't all be kings and queens so suck it episode number 696 of the bad crypto podcast you This is the bad crypto podcast the show for the crypto curious and the crypto serious We are your blockchain blockheads your crypto clowns the nifty nerds It's the DeFi do fight the metaverse morons and the bad crypto badasses Joel calm and sir Lord Travis right and and we're here for you We are heater Definitely not only that we want to you know we've been talking about a lot of this stuff and some people go oh my god It's conspiracy you guys but part of the reason that I know that I got into crypto was because I understood how fiat money works right and Once you understand how paper money works in the Federal Reserve Bank that's neither federal nor reserve and then paper fiat money is always inflationary it always crashes eventually and Always create these depressions and whatnot and so it's like once you understand that you start Trying to figure out how the rest of the system works right Joel kind of yeah absolutely and you know hey conspiracy Theorists are batting pretty high right now like if you know you were a Vegas odds maker You'd have to put your money on on the conspiracy Theorists and look some of it is just obvious as the nose on your face Unless you know you unless you have no nose in which case it's just obvious that you don't have a nose on your face Which is even more obvious than having a nose on your face, so by the way Travis. I was reading through you know our list of Funny things that we call ourselves You know usually we say we duck duck go things so people don't have to and that that has to change now now We're chat GPT stuff so people don't have to Well we're Claude a eyeing stuff also you found a great site called Claude AI That you can upload documents to and tell it to give you summaries Mm -hmm yeah, it's really good. It's one of those tools that can help you learn faster Right as long as these tools don't become bastardized and be completely biased from a liberal bent right that only gives you Oh, I give you upload stuff, and it goes and we don't want to tell you that because it says things We don't want you to know. I think it's we're still early that that's not the case I I do think chat GPT is getting a little more biased Claude doesn't seem to be yet, right? But what I did was I found this document. I think I found it on a Twitter Thread or a YouTube video. I don't remember exactly where I found it But then if you go to the great taking dot -com you can actually get this PDF download the PDF then Upload it into Claude dot AI when I say Claude that's like Claude Monet CLA ude dot AI Upload it in there, and then just you can start asking it questions, right? You can do this with any PDF that you want to upload, but this this author right here David Roger Webb He's worked in finance and investing for many years, and he started to realize that most of these major economic crises are Intentionally by caused these very powerful people who control the central banks and the financial system, and then you go hey Travis What do you mean these powerful secretive people who own the control the central banks and the financial system? Well that goes back Joel to our G Edward Griffin Conversation with the creature from Jekyll Island and how they created the Federal Reserve Bank at the same time They created the IRS same time They created the Federal Reserve Note and the paper money and their goal has always been to over time Not immediately like the people who created it in Jekyll Island the in the Federal Reserve Bank They know they're not gonna be the ones that see this true fruit to fruition But they know their grandkids are probably gonna be the ones that lead it So there they want to consolidate power and control humanity and orchestrate this economic turmoil Over a long period of time like they don't have just a four -year cycle of goal like a typical president does Joel They have like hey, we're gonna do this over the next hundred hundred and twenty -five years right right. It's generational You know it's kind of the Chinese have been so successful because you know as you've noted before they have a 500 year plan And so the powers that be are looking you know forward to the generations to come here and going how do we bring this? To a place where we have all the control on the world and we decide how the world is run and so this book provides one theory on How this all comes together and how they bring about this great reset And so it doesn't mean that this is what is going to happen But all of the things we're going to talk about that are described in this book are definitely we're on that path To these things taking place and fortunately you know Satoshi Nakamoto created Bitcoin and If it weren't for decentralized cryptocurrency, I don't know that you know there would even be a chance of Fighting back against the the tide that has been set against us to you Yeah, yeah, well what we're seeing is a collapse in monetary velocity Just just like what happened in the 1930s depression where money has an ebb and it flow It's like that would they'll flood the market with more paper dollars and printer go burr And then they get to the point where they start pulling that money back And there's less money and then that signals the end of the debt cycle Right according to this book and according to other experts, and that's what we're seeing right now is there's this slow collapse that's happening and That's what's most likely Motivating the great reset plan right so they're talking about oh, you'll have nothing and you'll be happy well What does that mean? What do you mean? We're gonna have nothing and be happy.

A highlight from Bukele's Plan to Keep El Salvador Bitcoin Country | EP 818
"They're really, really serious about this Bitcoin thing. So anyways, that's what I wanted to cover today. I think it's really, really important that not only is Bitcoin taught to kids at a very, very young age, but also more importantly, that, you know, this happens worldwide, right? And I'm gonna pass this question to Alex. Alex, do you think it's a coincidence that financial education is not given in high school? Money is not talked about during high school. Is that a coincidence? What's going on there? Not at all. I don't think that's a coincidence at all. If you look at the type of things that are being taught in American schools today, this concept of really demoralizing the nation and kind of getting people into this mode that goes along with this feeling of disempowerment. So it kind of switches them into this mode where they just don't believe in the system. They feel very disempowered. They want to attack everything that has anything to do with power or authority or unfortunately, even success. Like there's this video that I saw the other day that I thought was really good. It was called Postmodern Resentment. I'm trying to remember the name of the guy that had it, but he was basically talking about how like people get into this situation where, especially in an environment like this, where you've got inflation that is so high, people begin to feel powerless. So once they begin to feel powerless, if they own that enough, they start to resent anybody who's doing well. And that is a perfect breeding ground for these types of ideas, which are then used really to destroy the systems of the existing free state. That's a very dangerous pathway. And I think it was Bastiat that said, and I'm paraphrasing him, because this is not the exact quote, but it's something like this, is that if you want to take over a country, you do it in the schools. And I saw this kind of stuff happening many years ago. I want to say in the early 2000s, I was very concerned about it. In fact, I even left the United States for a period of almost 11 years to live in another country, because I didn't want my kids growing up in that school system. I think it's very dangerous and it's leading to a lot of not ideal outcomes right now. Yeah, a hundred percent. I 100 % agree with you. You sense it. It's this very defeatist mindset, nihilistic mindset, but at the same time, I really believe that the root cause of it is Fiat itself. I think if you corrupt the base layer of society, if the base layer of society is based on lies, I think that has a lot of unintended consequences. It infects every facet of society. I don't think that it's a coincidence that the first society that fixed the base layer, made Bitcoin legal tender, the person that was elected into office is actually doing the things that he said he was gonna do if he was elected. I do not think that's a coincidence, but maybe I'm seeing things. I did ask Max and Stacy. Stacy agreed. I did ask Jimmy Song. Jimmy Song agreed, but I think it's too early to tell. I'm cautious to say statements like that. But anyways, Opti, what's your take on this? What's your take on that video? And shout out to our chat, because someone in the chat was someone that pointed out, that's Edward Griffin that's doing that interview. And again, we all know the book that he wrote. Anyways, Opti, what's your take? Yeah, so first and foremost, as a product of the American public school student, I think this is awesome. And for those that aren't from America, that don't get the meme about being an American public school student, it basically means that it's a running joke that you're dumber than your counterparts that go to a private school or are homeschooled. And look, Niko, you said that we're not gonna say that it's by design, but I'm gonna double down and say that I think it is by design. Sorry, bro, but it's very obvious. And you're not taught, and we're obviously being rhetorical in these questions, why are we not taught about money or the inner workings of money and how they work? And again, I'm gonna say that it's by design, because if people understood the inner workings of banking, of the Federal Reserve, of money, of state controlling money, I think they would get pissed off. What's that one saying? If people knew how banking worked, there'd be a revolution overnight. So again, what do we say? There's no coincidences, but there's also - There's no conspiracies, but there's also - There's no conspiracies, but there's no coincidences. Exactly, and it's like, you can't have one without the other. You can't have a financial system that is designed to steal from them and have an educated citizenry. It just doesn't work like that, or else people would get pissed off and things would change. And obviously, the status quo wants to remain the same. And look, maybe this is Niko and Opti, or rather, we'll say just Opti being conspiratorial here, but Safteen even says it himself, where basically American public schools are designed to make you into a Soviet labor worker, something on the lines of our American public school system was designed in such a way that they took it from the Soviet Russia education system, and they basically just make you and design you to be a factory worker. So of course, they're not gonna educate you on money or tell you how the inner workings of banking work. Of course, this is by design. And yes, of course, in this topic about El Salvador, there is some concern about it being state mandated and the threat there. And I know Bitcoiners get skeptical and we're always looking at attack vectors, but I would say overall that this is a benefit for not only El Salvador, but for the kids out there. We say it all the time and shouts at the fossil, he says it, but it's about the kids. And the best way to make Bitcoiners is to teach them young. You don't have to talk to the older generation and have them unlearn everything about what they think to be true. Again, I just watched the big short the other day, and what's that Mark Twain quote in the beginning of, it's not what you know that is wrong, it's what you think you know that isn't true, that really hurts you. And this is where we are. There's so many people out there, we would say the majority of the citizenry in America or in the first world, that believe that the world works a certain way and it's literally what is causing them to be poor. So like, I don't know. I mean, I think it's very smart to start with the kids and get them on a Bitcoin education program. And obviously we haven't been able to fully decipher what the program is, but if it's being led by Safedean, I am sure it's going to be an epic, epic Bitcoin education program. And it really makes me think of, I grew up playing lacrosse as a kid. And so I learned a little bit about native Americans. And one of the things that I really enjoyed is the meme of seven generation thinking. And we have Yuri saying it on the opposite side, that if you get a control of the kid's mind in what, 30 years, 10 years, a few decades, you can completely change the fabric of society. And this is where we are. And so we're going to have to do the opposite, but in a positive manner is teach people how to be Bitcoiners, why Bitcoin, why hard money and start with them young. So like, you know, there's kids out there already that have been living in a Bitcoin only world. And it's just already second nature to them. You know, like my little, I have a cousin, she's like 10 years old and I'll send her Bitcoin and she has a Bitcoin wallet. And she's just like, this is so much easier than banking. It's like, it's so simple. If this is the first thing you've encountered, like Nico and I talk about all the time. If you go to a bank as a kid, they won't even let you get a bank account and you just download an app. And it's like, okay, here you go. You are your own bank. Mom, send me some sats. It's as easy as that. And the kids are going to grow up. They're already tech savvy and this is going to be second nature for them. And this is how we win that culture wars by instilling in them young that Bitcoin is the way you save. And why are you holding this fake paper money? Like what is going on here? Like you old people are crazy. Oh man. Oh man. Opti, Opti is the in -house. I'm the voice of the audience here. Opti is the in -house, outside the Overton window guy. Anyways. I'm not even that far outside. I'm just like, here guys, come here, come here. Like you're almost there. You're almost there.

Fresh update on "griffin" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Eco map technology stands against systemic racism, bigotry and a police state that criminalizes black bodies. Now, obviously, BLM doesn't openly advocate for raping, but they do advocate for getting rapists out of jail quicker, as evidenced by this thug that killed a white liberal who she thought we're going to be allies with black America really messed up. Hey, everybody, Charlie Kirk here. Do you know that the average American spends about 20 years in retirement? That's a long time to live without a steady income. We want to make sure you enjoy every moment of it and don't outlive your money. Retirement is about more than just investment. It's about living your best life. Let's not retire. Let's pivot.

So check it out. Pax FG dot com slash Charlie. Joining us now is Donald Trump Jr. Don, thanks for taking the time. You and I were texting last night. This is an outrageous ruling. Leticia James just appoints a judge, not even a jury, who comes in and tries to basically close down all the Trump businesses. Don, take as much time as you need to walk us through it. I've never seen anything like this. Yeah, honestly, Charlie, you know, I've been in real estate for a long time. I've never seen anything even like it. I mean, this is sort of like the start of the Bolshevik Revolution. We don't just we don't like you. So we're going to confiscate property. We're going to do these things. We're going to throw numbers and valuations on things based on what a judge in New York thinks. Disregarding, by the way, Charlie, disregarding like the biggest brokers in like Florida and the Palm Beach market. We're not going to take what they say. We're going to put a number on it. So you can take Mar-a-Lago and say you overstated the value of it. We think it's worth 18 million dollars. Mar-a-Lago is 20 acres. You've been there. It's a pretty spectacular place, probably one of the finest homes anywhere in the world. And there's a lot within half a mile that's 2.2 acres, not on the ocean with nothing on it, just jungle. It's on the market for 150 million dollars. But Mar-a-Lago is worth 18. We're going to go to summary judgment, Charlie. We don't want a jury to be involved in that because, you know, that that doesn't fulfill the narrative. We're going to disregard expert testimony. We're going to disregard the witness. We're going to bring Don Jr. and Eric Trump into it, even though all of the witnesses who have testified said, hey, we had nothing to do with the statement of financial condition. But hey, our last name is Trump. So we have to be punished. It's the opposite of Hunter Biden, who can take millions from China and be doing this. We can conduct regular business where not a single bank wasn't paid back in full and with interest. And yet somehow they're still magically a victim here. No one knows who it is. No one can actually explain that. But this is the tyranny that's going on. You have a judge, frankly, Charlie, that that took what the attorney general in New York who campaigned on a campaign of I'm going to get Trump, I'm going to make the MF, you know, pay all these kind of crazy things before she was ever in office. He actually gave her significantly more than she was even trying to get on his own volition. Again, bypassing a jury, bypassing the basics. And again, total disregard for the experts or anything that's in there. It's absolute lunacy. And again, going through it last night, I'm like, explain it to me, because I don't even understand. I've in business, in law, in lawsuits, it's like they're trying novel ideas, because they know they can get away with it in a place like New York. Yes, it's no different than what you see going on for the J sixers in Washington, DC. You know, they can't get a fair trial. Everyone understands that, which is why those venues are going to be pushed. It's why they tried getting Trump with a DC grand jury for stuff in Florida. It's the same in Atlanta. It never ends. They're weaponizing this under the guise of, of course, you can get a fair trial. We're going to believe that a person in New York is going to tell us everything that they're going to be fair. Just the social pressure alone for someone, even if they probably realized that it's all nonsense on that jury, they wouldn't be able to walk the streets of New York if they're the one that said, hey, this is nonsense. This is unfair. It's designed to continue and persecute their political enemies because Trump had the goal of taking on the establishment and actually winning. That that's right. And Don, I just want to go through the facts here. And I mean, I've spent a lot of time in Palm Beach, as you all know, I've raised a lot of money in Palm Beach, done right. And you know, it's kind of running joke that if you get a shed on the island, right, on one of the, on one of the streets, you know, jungle El Brio or whatever, like a little shack, it's a $30 million shot. I mean, that's not an exaggeration, right? I mean, it is, let's just say, uh, there's funny money valuations in Palm Beach. And so this judge says that Mar-a-Lago is worth 18 to 30 million. I guess the only benefit is that, you know, your father's real estate bill, a tax bill property tax bill is going down big time. That's a minimum multi-billion dollar property. I mean, it's well known. This is not private that, that Ken Griffin bought like $400 million of lots right next to Mar-a-Lago right next to the bath and tennis club for 400 million bucks. And Mar-a-Lago is like triple the size of that. I mean, how does, where does this judge get off? He calls himself Mr. Zillow, you know, you know, valuing properties. I don't understand. No, that's what I'm saying. I mean, ignoring Larry Mowins, who does all of the large transactions, I believe he put together the Ken Griffin. I know him. That's right.

Amy Pravat -Perko, CEO of the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics, says there are a lot of opportunities for college athletes to make money through their name, image and likeness, or NIL, now that the Supreme Court just about a year ago gave it all a thumbs up. Athletes are benefiting like never before from these new opportunities to earn compensation from their use of their NIL. Athletes like UCLA quarterback Chase Griffin. He has a $90 ,000 valuation as a brand ambassador and even gymnast and University of Florida grad Trinity Thomas and Jack Betts, a wide receiver at Division III Amherst College, are scoring big bucks.

"Of working with you. I know Dan and because successful of Dan. But Dan's also successful because he's got a good team. And he'll tell you that I've heard him say it many, many times. And we appreciate Dan bond Gino too, because, you know, what he does is unique. He always talks about rush Limbaugh trying to feel his shoes. And he's right. Nobody can feel rush. But Dan is about the closest thing that I know that I've heard, can feel a great legendary rush Limbaugh and Dan becoming a legend own. of his And I'll tell you one other thing on Dan and Jim, this ain't the kiss up segment. We don't need a kiss of sub music. Okay. I'm just letting you know that. But what makes bond Gino by the way bond Gino that just the name makes it great.

Wall Street Moving to Texas and Florida - Is it a Good Thing?
"To ask, what do you think about all the money managers and Wall Street investment bankers coming down from New York to Texas and Florida? Like Kenneth kind of Griffin runs like Citadel and he's moving to Miami. So what do you think about all that? Yeah, I think that Florida and other states have to be careful. I mean, it's going to result in, I mean, Ken Griffin is a conservative. So that's one example. But most of those guys in that community is not like Goldman Sachs is moving, right? For example, I don't celebrate it. I don't. I mean, Florida is not desiring for more economic growth right now. But Florida has managed it because of leadership, right? Florida just signed in a 6 week abortion ban, Florida has said that Disney no longer gets special tax privileges and that's being disputed in court. Florida is leading the way on a lot of this stuff. And now you have left wing companies saying I would never want to move to Florida. That's a good thing, actually. Okay? And there's nothing the left does that we can not also do, right? Now this is important is that the left is really good. They're like parasites. They're good at taking over things. We're much better at starting things. So let's have a revival of entrepreneurship, right? This is why I can't stand this whole idea of sending kids to go to college. If you want to kill the entrepreneurial spirit, send a kid to go to college, right? It absolutely destroys the entrepreneurial potential in my opinion. I always laugh when someone says, I ask, what are you studying? They say I'm studying entrepreneurship. I said, you don't study entrepreneurship. You do entrepreneurship. No offense if anyone's studying entrepreneurship, but you do it, you take a risk, you get into the market. So I'm generally not a fan of left wing enterprises because you know why I'm not a fan of it. I'm not a fan of it because now if they have an idea ideological shift, then that's great. Like if these left wing Goldman Sachs firms say, you know what, we're leaving New York because of the crime because of the vagrancy because the schools because of the taxes and we're going to Florida and now we see the world differently. It's the opposite. These people leave these states and come to Texas with zero self awareness as to why this state is more attractive than the hellscape that they actually voted for.

Air National Guardsman Jack Teixeira Arrested by FBI
"Let's get the reporting here. Let me get an overview from Jennifer Griffin, who first reported on the arrest to Neil cavuto yesterday on Fox News. Neil cyber sleuths and journalists for The New York Times and Washington Post seemed to have honed in on the leaker faster than the FBI who arrived at his house in night and Massachusetts this afternoon. The alleged leaker was identified by attorney general Merrick Garland as 21 year old Jack Teixeira of the 102nd intelligence wing of the Massachusetts Air National Guard. According to the air force, he was promoted to airman first class. Last July, he worked as a systems communications specialist for his unit. And that's how he accessed some of the nation's biggest secrets. The Washington Post managed to track down an interview a member of the online chat group that to share a lead for the past few years. And he claims that he is a Russian operative or pro Russian is categorically false. He is not interested in helping any foreign agencies with their attack on the U.S. or other countries. He was a young charismatic man who loved nature God who loved shooting guns and racing cars. This teenager in California says he was one of 20 or so members who met with the alleged leaker during the pandemic on a server called thug shaker central on Discord. He acted like a father figure to the teens. They called him OG. Every single day we would watch movies play games do activities together. We'd stream our houses and mess around and dance and have fun. When members would have issues like mental health crisis, OG and other members would help them out. The team described the small group as his online family and said, unlike Edward Snowden or Chelsea Manning, he was not a whistleblower, just a guy showing off for some impressionable kids locked down during

"Joel and lord Travis here for another episode of the bad crypto podcast this one coming hot on the heels of a weekend that will go down in infamy. Hello trev. My my my. Crypto goes down, crypto goes up, crypto goes down, crypto goes up, and wow, you know, it's really up today. You know, is that Joel? The world it is up today in the world doesn't change. Like here we are with the second biggest bank failure in U.S. history and the U.S. government stepping in to stop the contagion and the dominoes falling. Trevor, are there any other banks that people should avoid? I mean, knowing that S is a bad starter for a bank. Yeah. Yeah, that's so true. So maybe if you are Santander bank, you might want to be on the lookout south state bank. Security bank. There's a few of those out there. S and T, that's one. Stockyards bank. I mean, there's a lot of banks that Sally may. Santana has a bank. Santana has a bank and they play guitar when you come in. Come to a bank. We're going to have a bank around here. We've been talking about this stuff for a while, folks. And you know, it's like, what happens? What are some of the first stages of a potential traditional financial system collapse? Because if you've listened to some of the previous episodes that we've done, G Edward Griffin and talking about the creation of the Federal Reserve banking system, the creation of Fiat currency, how the life of a world reserve currency Joel last what? 80, 90 years, maybe. And here we are, so all of these things are sort of lined up, and then you had the pandemic, and then you had all these banks taken into posits and then putting them into risky things. It's just crazy watching what's going on. And one thing that's peculiar to me, Joel, is that every one of these banks are like innovation friendly kind of banks. They are. So
Chicago Police Superintendent Steps Down
"All right, let me go to some more police information on our police news. Chicago police chief resigns after Laurie dirty foot loses reelection. And it says police superintendent, and they call it the superintendent we call it the police chief. But police superintendent David Brown said on Wednesday that he would leave his post effective of March to 16th according to an email statement from the mayor who commended his service. Life foot loss on Tuesday as we have heard that she and I talked about it yesterday on my show that we heard she lost in a high profile reelection and from my understanding it's a lose lose for Chicago because they just got a dummy for they got dumb for dumber. And here's the statement from chief Brown. He says, I will be stepping down as Chicago police superintendent effective March 16th, 2023, so the incoming mayor can begin the process as soon as possible to hire the next superintendent. Brown said in a separate statement, it has been an honor and it's been a privilege to work alongside the brave men and women of the Chicago police department. Chicago faces raising violence. That sparked outrage amongst residents and business leaders, billionaire Ken Griffin, who's the gentleman that originally said he was going to support Trump and decided not to, cited violence as one of the reasons that he moved Citadel hedge fund to Florida from Chicago. While McDonald's corporations, CEO, Chris, I'm not going to waste to say his name, told the economic club of Chicago last year that it had become harder to attract talent to the windy city.

Jam packed with caffeine and vitamins. So again, shout out to 5 our energy. Check them out on social media and also on their website. Griff. How's it going?

"Do. It's hard to put into action. But i think being reminded of that from you and hopefully from other places in our life helps us to make those transitions. I feel like trying to make those transitions everyday. My parenting right. Now of how. Can i not do what my brain wants to do. That's wants to yell. it wants to react. It wants to jump on them and teach them a lesson and but then are they learning what they need to or are they just learning that. Well that made mahmad. So i won't do it again right. I don't. i don't think the best lessons are learned through like fear inducing intimidation and nor do i think the lord usually teaches us that way. I think i'd gentle conversation is sometimes the best lessons. I'm not saying that every once in a while we don't like Have to use more forceful language but we should never be harsh with our children in order to expect them to behave. I don't want kids. Intimidated into obedience to the lord. I'll tell you honestly. I was at a christian chapel this week where the message to kids was. Hey god is always watching so behave yourself. And i'm like that's not my theology. I believe that the reason. I won't behave myself is because i want heart change in my kids only to love jesus then so therefore they're going to honor one another not like a santa claus. Jesus says if you want good rewards do what you're supposed to do and don't wanna face punishments. Don't do what you're not supposed to do right. That's not the bible. The bible is forgiving and gracious and gentle. And you get more than you deserve. We obey not in order to earn radha because christ has died for us. therefore we do it. We're supposed to do in response to the great gift we've already received. I love that idea of in response to write. Not just because of like it gives a little bit brings in a little bit more of its our choice. It's something that we get to choose not something like you must do and back to that. God we were talking about at the at the very beginning so harsh and i another thing that i love about your guys books that you both you and matt are very open about what goes on in your home. So they're sections in the book where you'll say in the chandler home blah blah in the griffin home blah blah and. You talk about like what actually is going on so when you talk about these moments you do list a ton of them in the book and listeners. I would encourage you to get the book because they give so many good simple practical tips as you're going through these steps and then you guys actually give graphs so for people that are like graph people or organizational people. You'll open it up and go. Oh this is fabulous but for those when we're talking about the moments can you just give us one example of in griffin household. What is a moment that you take and use for family discipleship in the book having uniform language or united language in your household that really helps parents be on the same page.

Give one of the bravest goddamn ever and and we've talked about it and it's it's a movie that they use that term ahead of its time with so many movies but really is ahead of its time is in the whole coast it it touches upon that whole idea. You know you take tragedy or a big new story and the press you know makes it into a big publicity and and they perversely. They can't help it. They want that kid to be dead. Yeah yes it's gonna it'll pay for the paper you know it's just like and you're down there and you're pretending you're You give a shit and You know it's just all newsman just vying and it really is like that. I mean when. I saw the movie. I i'd never i. It's not a very well known movie. Wilders and i forget how. I came across it. It was some time ago and it took my breath away out cynical. It was And and also funny it just my my sense of humor and You know and then you know years go by so i know that this is the case my my mother lived in nogales. It's right on the border of mexico. she was raised there and she went there towards the end of her life. And my brother was was Staying with her and he went for a hike and very rugged country and he went to this national park and he climbed mountain and he disappeared disappeared for five days and it became a huge media event. Well because of the my dad was covering the oj trial and it was during that time and judge ito would say we know. Mr done is We wish him the best we know. His son is missing and And what happened. Was i mean i i. I thought the minute it happened before the press arrived and matter of fact the guy we were with my friend charlie. Wessler hired the the pilot. Who was the Helicopter pilot who did the oj chase so. We had this guy flying over the the terrain where alex would've been and then we saw his car in the parking lot and the moment we call that in news trucks These these these special units for the police these enormous. Rv's communication centres mules dogs. Everything just started to come into this one under this parking lot in the middle of nowhere and then crowds the looky loos and it just built and built and built and it was like i just kept going case the whole every it was it was it is exactly like how strange and the movie was also released as the big car. They changed the title and costs in the movie. It's it's so strange. It's like a carnival is built around the area with the sky. Coal miner is is being is dying in the mountain. And it's like they're making money they're selling shirts and wilder was a reporter so he knew that he knew that world. Yeah he knew what he was writing about and it was. It was a very unpopular film. As i imagine as i remember hearing the people actually just hated it because it was just so ugly for them to see people go. Why did you make that movie. You know and kirk. Douglas scumbag totals come back. I think he produced it. He did he liked playing those parts. Yeah play the bad and the beautiful. He played the home. I think he was attracted those kind of ask. I just reminds me of her story. I think i was doing an interview for like cnn or something. And they said oh. We don't know if we can get to you yet. 'cause there's a plane the new story that's out of control in the sky. They said they don't know if the pilot died but the plane is moving radically in the sky. And so i'm waiting there backstage and they keep going no is following the story the plane and then this woman runs backstage excited and she goes great news the plane crash how i actually remember that. They became overcome by some sort of fume. yes yeah private jet and it just flew until it ran out of a good news. Sometimes wilder cynicism worked like the mix was right and things like sunset boulevard and other times like in. Kiss me stupid. Audiences rejected at eight thirty. When he went too. Far to get to the thing. I brought up with a million guests show up. Prepare yourself for this griffin okay. This is theory about billy wilder.

"Weird to hire young actor who so much better than vin diesel like. This guy's really good dramatic actor. Yeah and what i say to that is re watch the first fast and furious movie. Remember vin diesels background. He was like a fucking new york. Like off off off broadway blackbox theatre act right. Who then became like a weird character. Actor was doing shit like saving private ryan and boiler room where he's like scoring really hard and then had this action star transformation. I think that's what he always wanted to do in his career. But you watch the first fast and furious movie and he's giving a sundance drama performance is arguably maybe a little rod but it fits in the fucking genre that first movie. The car bodas. He's being patrick. Swayze of cars where it's like but his philosophy is family rather than spirit or whatever and then is yes and that is vin. Diesels ultimate superpower as a movie star is. He always knows exactly what movie he's in and he knows the performance to give for that movie. I say by a certainly in his own projects. There's something about him not being afraid of the corny shit that makes him sort of like he never winks at anything. He's doing and it's he takes it so seriously and you're like that's insane but then when you watch fast nine you're like whoa. I'm glad you took it seriously. So i didn't have other. Yes otherwise you're watching your local gifts shit like the hudson trump problem. Where the whole movies winking at you and you're like if you don't care that i don't care and these like put a straight face on this fucking thing and he understands his iconography so well but at this point as you said he's become like this fucking greek god right and he's become like it's become a performance of like fuck and poses rights and like catchphrases and all this shit and i think he was very smarter being like. I need to find an actor. Who's like what. I was twenty five years ago and let that guy. Give the grounded emotionally rooted naturalistic performance. Because people have to remember. That's what dom was right. Like a our first association with dom are meeting with him was in a movie where he had that vibe. And be because this shit's and so absurd in the present tense. We need to w ground that stuff in the past. Now i love combining this with dock with vin. Diesels business acumen. Why wouldn't you put an absolute star. Young dying cares if it steps on you because if that's spins off with young dom which has got to be. Yes a conversation somewhere. Vin diesel gets paid on that in perpetuity. Absolutely you might as well have an absolute fucking banger. This vinnie bennett is the kid's name. I didn't know him before this. You fucking but he's good great like everyone. I know random strangers people are like once more of that guy. This can walk too hot. And he's a good actor. Put them in more movies and venus. Just gonna do fucking victory laps about this. Even if it doesn't become an adventures of young toronto franchise you know vein is gonna feel such pride over the fact. He launched that guy's career yup when that shouldn't be star for the next two decades because he he played an iconic the young version of an iconic character late. We're talking about like. He's getting a play wolverine movie. You're playing young toronto. I think he looks the correct amount like vin. And not like in. I think he makes all the correct choices. In terms of how much he is doing an impersonation how much he's doing his own thing. All of that just feels incredibly incredibly. Well judged. it's fucking. It's so simple but it means so much watching it. You're just like oh thank god. Yeah that's ship. Where i immediately go like right lens back in the driver sees this and that's part of because the comfort of the compass is correct. Yeah and the melodrama of all the young person shit of the young dom ship is like this feels like home and very smash that up against swinging a car like it's a fun morning. Starch happens fifteen minutes into the movie like it's kind of incredible. How quickly they get there. 'cause right it's like this opening then at the house you see dom family life right like he does seem happy content but there is that that weird loneliness there from the fact. That letty later explains like if she's not in the shit she doesn't really feel like she's living right but it's nice to watch their their family unit. It's nice to watch them as parents and all this sort of shit. This has a little bit of a lot from roman but a little bit from everyone sort of like light judging of justification as to be this is why we're still involved in this shit just going to get because the roman thing gets me choked up actually when they get there and i think it's beautiful but the our friends show up in a fucking car right and then just go. Hey we're here here's the gobbledygook or you guys ready to start the plot and its other lynn thing. Where i'm like the exact amount of explanation. I want where they're just like. Here's a mysterious video. Our friend is missing. There's a device it could be the worst weapon in the world. Do you want to go out and stop it or not. And i'm like great. None of this like fuck emission possible rabbit foot shit or the whole movie is playing this game of like what is it right. None of this like over explaining shit right. It's just and no mobile device. It's got two pieces in a code. If you put them together the world ends up that and the other cool thing they do is that. There's no connecting this to other like.

"They both really. I'm a really big fan of hawk. Even hi i'm a huge fan of ethan. Hawke as well yeah. It was really funny. Because i never heard of him and then i watched before sunrise. I started like he was more like out of nowhere. More prominent. i guess. I just hadn't noticed it. But he's so brilliant. I need to watch dead. Poet's i haven't seen the poets yet. Either you do though is so is so subtle. And it's not. He's not he's not he's never flashy but he's always Lake he feels like he so spontaneous which is so gasol. He's a very versatile actor. As well i mean like boyhood like look at boyhood compared to like i reforms like you. Both has leading roles in both of those first reformed is probably my favorite performance of his. It's i wo- yeah. I still haven't seen first reforms. Hogan's i love i reformed. Yeah yeah now.

"Because i looked it up. And i was watching. I was like today's confused. Come before or after actually came before. And i didn't know that because decent confused on ninety three and i felt like it was such a big jump in like a really bold move to go from you know like the best hang movie of all time dazed and confused to the greatest romance movie of all time. So he's covering his bases I love him so much but they're both kind of hang up movies. Ray i who. I don't know if i would like like. I got new buddies. That's pop on before sunrise. Okay no i guess. I guess it's not hang out movie as in like i'm hanging out with my friends and let's like put this movie on. It's kinda hang up movies in like you're hanging out with the characters right. Yes i think yes there. Yeah on that terms. Yeah i misunderstood what she meant. I think no no no i mean yeah i guess i hang up movies in that way. Kinda has two meanings right because but yeah in in the sense that like the whole time you're sort of you're you're just with the characters on whatever journey that they're on i think i think I think both of those movies feel very contained but they have the sense that like like selena. Jesse feel as real as like friends of mine. You know like they just feel like they have their own lives. And i'm happy that i get to return to them at different points. You know over link later a little. Bit more yeah. He builds location so well in life. It like with before sunrise like they all have these like specific locations and then at the end of the movie before the credits roll before we see them on the trains again we see each location like the the wind and the grass and the ferris wheel the boat the record store he bills locations so well in a kind of feels like home. Almost it's like you like these characters. Had that connection so does the viewer. Maybe that's just me. But like i feel like i've built a connection with those different areas as the film's go on films. I mean every link later film. i've seen He bills location really well on kind of flushes out the tone with the location. You know what. I'm saying totally and i think you bring up a good point about like returning those locations because the way the way he shoots them in the morning is very like not romantic mantis sized and so much of the movie is shot in these like very intimate shots the two of them and then all of a sudden locations from far away. You're like oh that's where we were. It's sort of like returning to a familiar place yet. And you touched on a little bit angle. It feels less fuels farther away. 'cause like you know. A lot of the film is super close up. I noticed that this a lot of it is kind of close like you still like we touched on it like you feel like you're with them that the end kind of separates a little bit. You kind of get a broader view of the area totally totally. That's i think it's important to to mention that..

"Yeah totally i mean like her obsession with death is so interesting never really touched on that yet. Yeah i mean like her. Like i i for i mean it comes it comes and goes but i've i've i've gotten i've gone through periods where i'm really freaked out about death just as a concept and so like that's something which i think this movie also captures. Is this idea that like it tends to be the tends to be young people that that freaked out so much about the. I don't even know why that is. But it's like they don't really returned to that in the later movies. Because i don't think people in their thirties get fixated on that idea as like people that are coming to their own like experiencing that as an idea for the first time if that makes any sense yet that's really flushed out because she's talking about like back in the cemetery scene where she was thirteen. She realized she was like. Oh like this kid died when they were my age and so that kind of it stats flushed alec. Super early in the movie keeps keeps pressing throughout the film Yeah no one hundred percent a hundred percent. I love that idea that yes. She says she says like ten years older than her. Now i was. I was same age less simoes here. Yeah like this idea that that like that. There's something sort of eternal about like this girl that that died. It was an an and then she also talks about that scene. How there's something serve the. There's something sort of attornal about people not knowing you're dead which is kind of a disturbing concept but yeah interesting yeah. Death is even brought up before that when jesse talks about how many people are In the world right now and how many people were around fifty thousand years ago. And if you believe green incarnation which jesse seems to do it's like are we just like one fiftieth of a soul right now to are..

"I find myself agreeing with both of them at different times but i do tend to be a romantic. And that's when. I really relate to jesse i guess 'cause i do tend to be someone that's like at least i mean jesse's pessimistic at different points because like selene gets sling gets caught up in the palm reading. And yeah i was going to bring that up. I was going to bring that up in the palm reading. Seen an ad in the poem thing is the same way. We're we're all of a sudden. It's like jesse's the one that's like not trusting of strangers or not like believing in the sort of ethereal the sorta the magical selena's much more spiritual than jesse is that that's for sure. Yeah i guess. I find myself relating more to jesse. Because he's more romantic and he's more like i'm going to make this work. I'm gonna. I'm gonna see you again. Like he's the one. That's kind of pushing that i don't know where where do you fall griffin on sort of the jesse and selene world these again. I'm not gonna go give money to to palm readers or anything that it's not me but like i'm i'm a majority. A famous philosopher once said that. They're jesse's jesse's leans jesse. I'm not ashamed of it. I i will be the guy who shows up to vienna six months later and is just heartbroken because the soleil doesn't show up. Yeah one hundred percent percent this this movie. I mean it's I started on the sequels earlier. It's kinda hard to separate from the sequel's just be. Oh yes just because like you. You know you really get to know these characters over three movies. But i think i think before sunrise is interesting on its own because it's it's meant to be standalone movie and so i think when i watched this i try to think of it as it's meant to be a stand alone movie and i know that like richard linklater said early on that That the ending is sort of a litmus test for actually how romantic you are like. Do you think they got together. Do you think they left. It like not not not knowing before sunset. Do you think you would have thought that they got together. Do you think it's just impossible to separate at this point. I like to think that they got together like at the end. I was like all right. If i hadn't. I didn't know at the time of like i wash. I didn't know there was sequels. Until after i went to like rated or whatever and i thought the bottom there was two more analysis super surprise so at the without knowing that there was other movies i felt like they had gotten together. They come back. that's just me. I was like. I feel like they probably would have gotten back together considering how how. Well the first needing went. I figured that they would probably meet back up again. Yeah i totally has. It has to do a lot with just kind of where you are in your life like. If you're if you're young i am. I'm twenty two. So i am firmly around jesse's age it's like i wanna believe in that low that look romantic nature that exists. I want to believe that. Type of lows israel not that it occurs in this world. But but. When when. I'm when i'm when i'm thirty all i probably won't be a little bit more jaded. I i'll relate a little bit more before sunset in when i married and divorced. Probably because you're trying to convince yourself or is it because you genuinely believe in that both i don't know what it's it's such a complicated thing to kinda crack in and try to figure out how you like what your thoughts are what you believe..
