How This Bitcoin Rally Is Different From 2017-2018

"One month ago. That coin was it about eleven thousand five hundred dollars and today it's flirting with eighteen thousand dollars and even when as high as eighteen thousand four hundred dollars and wednesday based on that. Hi there were only four days in bitcoin history when the price was higher and yet back then that increase was fueled by the initial coin offering craze in this breathless media coverage an issue runners. A lot less fanfare barely talking about it. So what would you say makes this increase in the price. Different from what we saw in late. Two thousand seventeen in early twenty yeah. There's a few things that are completely different this time. Around endogenously. the markets the structure of the market is totally different and the market infrastructure has evolved and changed dramatically. That's obviously our focus is a fondest financial market Structure and i can tell you that it is completely different this time around. It's much more mature. It's more sophisticated There's just more financial products available and there's more tools that qualified accredited large investors can use to get exposure. So that's you know it's one side which is just practically in infrastructurally speaking it's easier to get exposure to the market today And you know that looks a lot more mature and just generally speaking financial plumbing. His is more functional time around and then of course extra you have real macroeconomic tailwinds which are driving serious alligators towards allocators. Sorry towards the asset like real names and commodity investing the hedge fund world a global macro names who obviously we've heard them expressing a positive view of the price that latter element probably gets a little bit more attention. I'd say the former. Those dodges factors also very critical. I can't say that our current appreciation or rally is directly attributable to that. But it certainly means that we have the capacity onboard much more capital in a shorter period of time. And the other thing that i would mention as you say is that bitcoin was kind of being used as a flow through asset for retail investors primarily to get exposure to isos onto tokens and to trade sort of long 'til on some of these offshore exchanges and bitcoin was their entrance into the market. So a lot of the allocation of bitcoin was really transient. And that's partly why. I think we saw so much reflexively in the price and it's rally was not very enduring back in two thousand seventeen now. Of course the backdrop is different. There's last mania. This fewer new tokens launching. I think the regulators generally discouraging people from launching new isos in the manner that they didn't twenty seventeen and so bitcoin isn't being used in that capacity anymore. So you know it's easy to look at the price chart and see passes prologue. You know what's different today. I think if you look a bit deeper you look at the nature of the market. It really is dramatically different. So you did briefly. Mention the pandemic. And i'm sure this is kind of hard to quantify but i just wondered you know how big do you think. The impact of the pandemic has been on the rise of the bitcoin price this year. Well i wouldn't say directly affected but indirectly for sure. I mean first of all. Bitcoin is kind of a d. Materialized natively digital asset like a lot of those companies that are very sort of capital light. That did very well. During the pandemic era said bitcoin also benefited from that in terms of physical infrastructure. But it's completely distributed doesn't really rely. It's not interfered with by the pandemic directly and then on a more direct basis. I would say the action of central banks to the crisis is probably the big phenomenon. That's fueling bitcoin here. We're seeing people like to say on. Precedent really unprecedented monetary action. Someone say the sort of degeneration of the current sort of monetary orthodoxy. M one that measure of money supply and the us is growing at forty percent. Annualized right now. So we're seeing the monetary aggregates skyrocket in more so than not because you know quantitative easing money issuance. It doesn't necessarily have an impact on cpr prices and the real economy but we are seeing calls for more direct stimulus directly into the economy. Which would presumably be more inflationary in nature. Which would make it into the real economy which was not the case with previous bounce of qb so if that is the case if we have another six or twelve months of lockdown. I think we could really start to see a political demand for direct issuance. Issued in a kind of a fiscal capacity. And many believed that that could be natively more inflationary and of course as a hard asset and an asset with no monetary discretion. Bitcoin is something that people look to as an alternative in that circumstance so really remains to be determined whether get inflation or not but certainly the specter of inflation is looming. And i think that's part of the reason people are taking

Not critical, then grown again at Cedars Sinai Medical Center tells K and X. That means a lot of the people who have tested positive this week could become hospitalized next week.

Right now they have enough PPE on hand. But they're still concerned about whether they can handle the coming in flight. What I'm more worried about is actually just our hospital capacity doing have enough beds. Do we have enough? Resource is ventilators, even more advanced therapies.

Fed Up With Facebook and Twitter, Some Conservatives Turn to Parler

Fed Up With Facebook and Twitter, Some Conservatives Turn to Parler

"In recent months. In years we've seen mainstream social media. Companies like facebook and twitter. Step up their efforts to moderate content on their platforms in some prominent conservatives have said many of those measures unfairly target them and censor their viewpoints on the internet. They've increasingly responded by telling their followers to join them. On another social media platform it's called parlor and its billing itself. As a sort of libertarian. Alternative to twitter or puerto jeff horwitz has been looking into parlor and he joins me now to talk more about it. Jeff things being here certainly alright so for the folks who have been leaving book twitter. Can you just remind us what are their concerns with those platforms. Don't like content moderation very much or at least the way that the platforms are doing it. We should say and this kind of all boiled over the with the election the idea that the platforms would be one fact checking claims about voter fraud. That didn't really pan out but it'd be fact checking them at all and to be labeling the president's own speech and in some cases even restricting the spread of it really got people riled up and so many of them have been turning to parlor instead. It's sort of billing itself as this libertarian version of twitter but what exactly does parlor differently. That sort of appeals to these groups so the first thing it does is it does not moderate content except in very rare circumstances. The team does volunteers right now. So you know whether it even does it under. Those circumstances is kind of tb. Rules are no threatening to kill people and no committing illegal acts by means of the platform. Those two things are out aside from that. You wanna share nude sell fees by all means you want to use ethnic slurs. Go right ahead and this is intentional. Design the back of the hat form. It was launched with the expectation that there would be sort of this radical liberty approach and that even hateful speech would be tolerated and the thing that is sort of really different as well is that the platform doesn't push content at all so facebook and twitter and youtube. They all operate by recommending the best content when we think about things going viral it's usually because the platforms recognized that users responding in such a way that it was gonna meant the content was going to have great interest and then pushed it out to a whole bunch of people. This plant doesn't do that at all so you follow you. Follow you see their posts in reverse chronological order. And that's that so if the platform doesn't determine what people see what is doing that so on parlor. The interesting thing is that they've basically left all of this up to users. It is a user's responsibility to label sensitive about would be pornographic or extremely violent or hate-filled content if they post it and it is also used responsibility to use filters to determine whether they're going to see that so instead of trying to make sure that you know bad stuff doesn't go around the platform which is what the mainstream platforms tend to do what parlour is trying to do is making it so that you don't have to see it if you don't wish to and you giving users more control on that level so again it's just based on putting decisions that have typically been done on the platform level pushing it down to the user level and you mentioned the backers of parliament. Who's behind this. So rebecca mercer is the funder that got it off the ground. I mean everyone involved. Is i think has some very solid libertarian credentials executives with sort of ayn rand ian objectivism credentials or you know sort of bitcoin. Devotees rebecca mercer is the sign of robert mercer. Who is extremely wealthy hedge fund manager. Who has both funded. A whole bunch of very libertarian slash right meaning causes and also was involved with the cambridge analytica situation back in two thousand sixteen so he was funded dot company. Which was we all know. Got into a great deal of mass. Based on their somewhat dodgy business practices and as well obtaining of facebook data in ways that were blessed than orthodox. Got an end. Just how popular is this. Gambit of their how popular is parlor so parlour has gone from around four and a half million users before the election to well over ten men had been around for over two years at this point so they were really actually very slam trying to keep up with the traffic and it certainly didn't hurt that. You had some very high profile folks. Dan bongino the facebooks. Most popular radio hosts very right leaning. Talk show type actually. Owns a stake in the thing and has been pumping this on facebook as well based on the idea that people are irritated about facebook. Showdown groups and You know the stop. The steel effort that they sort of crackdown on and so it's kind of been on the platform itself. It's been getting pushed pretty hard. And that's been a big part of their growth. And i guess the question is does this platform present a competitive threat to the mainstream social media companies. Like could it actually compete with facebook and twitter too early to say. I think that there is a lot of skepticism. I mean people always say they don't want you know anyone else telling them what to thank telling them what to read or recommending content or censoring that they say that however the the history of the mainstream platforms basically was of people who had roughly those ideas themselves who were very much first amendment devotees even though they ran private platforms in the first amendment. Doesn't really apply in the full sense. They really wanted to keep it open for everybody and the problem is is that life gets in the way a and really vile stuff makes other users feel uncomfortable crimes get committed. There's kind of a reason why these platforms have cracked down over time. So i think it's sort of to be determined whether people who are leaving facebook and twitter because of their concerns that conservative viewpoints aren't going to be are being treated fairly are going to like being on a platform where like nude sell. Fees are totally cool. Are a wall street journal. Reporter jeff horowitz. Things reporting thank you.

Stock market turbulence could last until the election

"Now it's going to check on the markets. Joining us now is Abigail Doolittle. So when I looked at literally looked like people Buying from which everything have ago. Yeah, real risk on day here at least relative to stocks. Commodities a little bit less so, but we have big gains for both the Dow and the S and P 500 NASDAQ less so I'm not sure that has so much to do with the election last Friday, there were some saying that perhaps last Friday could turn out to be the pre election lo similar to 2016 when you're the two weeks into the election. Down weeks, and then you had a big rally in the election weekend out of the election. What's very clear, though, is we have lots of selling in the tech space that probably has to do with JPMorgan, saying that they're lightening up on their overweighting positioning to a neutral. They expect some of the more cyclical sectors to take hold, and that has nothing to do with the election. They think that will happen. No matter who wins the presidency. What they do say, though, is and this is not surprising that what investors really want relative to the election is certainty that they want to know who is going to win this election and that once that's in place that's going to be a real positive for the markets and one sign of that uncertainty. That you and Jeanie and Kevin were just talking about bonds. We actually have bonds rallying in a big way on the day after selling off last week. Never dull moment, David. Yeah, because it isn't But one thing you follow, I know is positioning. Is that telling us anything are people hedging? What's going with the vics? The vics is actually damn just slightly today, but the vics continues to suggest that yes, investors are heading into the election. The vics has been outpacing the VX N or the tech index, Vicks. Which is pretty interesting visit again suggest that relative to regular volatility as opposed to that mega cat volatility. Investors are starting to bring up the hedge in terms of anything can happen and something else that I've been watching for the last few months, the S and P 500 stuck in this huge range of congestion on there's one line of thinking that says That is in the three months ahead of the election. The stock market is up that supports the incumbent. If it is down that supports the contender, David right now it's on the wire, suggesting that the markets are far more uncertain about the outcome of this election. Then the Poles are exactly the Poles may not be reliable, so we'll find out soon enough. Thank you so much as it's Abigail do little reporting on the markets.

Black Friday 2020 Facebook Marketing Strategies

"Today the unofficial shop five podcast we are going to discuss some indepth facebook ads strategies for Black Friday cyber Monday twenty twenty is right around the corner not sure if you've heard of black Friday yet, but certainly, you're going to walk away with a lot of ideas today on what to do and in the past we have done. Episodes in years past where we really exhaustively walked through like this is the strategy. This is what each audience is. GonNa look like got very technical with it. This year, we're going to go higher level in more strategic and we're GONNA walk through like, okay. What can we learn from last year? What's the strategy this year, and then what are twenty twenty specific? Considerations. So I think that's going to provide a lot of value for everybody and joining me to discuss it is frequent recurring guest Kurt bullock. He's founder of an e commerce marketing agency. The produce department has a ton of ECOMMERCE experience knows facebook ads backwards and forwards, and that's why for years he has been our strategic marketing partner either cycle and we still. Greatly enjoy that relationship Mr Bullock. Thank you for being here. I appreciate it. Thanks Kurt. Happy to be here. All right. So. Give me well, all right. What's The let's open up with like what is the one key takeaway you want people to have when thinking about their facebook ads for twenty twenty the one thing that if they they need this piece of advice so that they can just quit listening. Let's let's lead with value. All right. That's a hard one, but I would probably summit up as. Being prepared because this year is. All over the place, we don't exactly know what? Black. Friday is going to look like this year and so I like to go. ooh. Be prepared little dramatic. Yes. Be prepared now. I just talked like to have optionality built into what I'm doing pre. Yes. So have give yourself options so that you're not scrambling at the last minute if things go differently than you might have expected I like that. That is good advice. So we're going for A. More risk averse strategy, and one interesting thing I saw facebook group this morning. But Mark Arruda for constantly very gear said, I don't know what's going. He said I'm paraphrasing, but he basically said we don't know what's going to happen. In November and on Black Friday and got, we really don't because the election is this wildcard and the pandemic there's it is so different weird in twenty twenty and he said, so we're going to run early bird sale in at the end of October, and then that way we have at least we'd know we hedged are bats we we took our shot however you want to phrase it. So I think I like where your head's at. Yeah. I've got I've seen that strategy. A lot of people are planning on doing things early this year the one thing that you kind of are you know playing with is People are in like super high intense shopping mindset near Black Friday and so you you definitely get that benefit when you're running your ads over that time and also like if you are running your ads and your promotion too early. You know. Most. Often, you're probably still going to be doing something over black Friday as well. So going to have multiple promotions running in a short period of time. So you of have to hold those two things intention and figure out. What to do, but we do have a lot of clients already started. To promotions just to get because there's a lot of concern about getting products on time and having sold out. Yeah. So the the concerns that merchants have and customers alike have are. Are we going to be able to get our stuff at time both can the can the inventory reach the merchant in the warehouse because we don't know what we're still seeing bottlenecks in the effects of essentially losing up to ten weeks of production time in q two and. In, once or start being placed, well, all these carriers are already slammed. So what's that GonNa, look like when things hit their peak in the first week of December like what kind of delays it slowdowns are we're gonNA see so I, don't think it's going to be like a complete apocalypse, but maybe things will be be delayed a few days but the the deadlines all the ship carriers gave for this year they're essentially the same as last year the yeah they're the same as last year I was surprised to see that. I. Thought. It would be at least a little bit more conservative than what they did. But I also like this, it's no surprise to anybody. So they've now they have been There are already weeks or possibly months into hiring additional couriers staff at CETERA bright. So and certainly like work. Oh, some sub consumers already shopping it. We knew that sub consumers always did shop in October. Now they just have a really good excuse. Right. Yeah. Google did a bunch of serving recently and you know. Result said that two thirds of shoppers planned to? START, their shopping extra early this year because of those inventory issues and just fear of like delivery stuff's not gonNa make it in time. So I think justify all of that and more justifies moving their start dates up in and talking about those things in your messaging. And it also has the effect of I. Mean there's there's some real potential scarcity. Here with all of this do. You know making sure that your products are. Available on the site and you get first pick a shopper.

The Vampire of Dsseldorf Peter Krten

"As Dusk, fell on February eighth, nineteen, twenty, nine, forty, six, year, old Peter Curtain prowled the bustling boulevards of Dusseldorf searching for his next victim. He stopped outside Saint Vincent's Church, and leaned against the stone wall he watched as Rosa. Olica a young girl of about eight years old sauntered towards him Peter Shot Rosa of friendly smile and asked where she was headed unfortunately. Roseau was unaware that it's often best to stay away from strangers and freely told him her address. Peter. Extended his hand and offered to take the eight year old home as soon as they were alone on a deserted street Peter Seized Rosa by the throat and strangled her aroused by. Her Death Peter Sexually. Assaulted her body however like so many times before sexual abuse was not enough to satisfy him for that. He needed see read Peter pulled his trustee pair of scissors from his coat pocket and repeatedly stabbed Rosa in the chest. He would later claim that only when he saw the gushing blood, did he finally reach sexual satisfaction Peter Stared down at Rosa's lifeless body and noticed that a small wound had formed on Rosa's temple where she hit the ground and it was starting to bleed at the site of the blood Peter was seized by a sinister craving. He pressed his lips around the wound and sucked the blood from Rosa's skull. Peter derived a pleasurable sensation from the act and like when he first killed a sheep as a teenager, it would change his life forever. Vanessa. Is going to take over unless psychology here and throughout the episode please note Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist, but she has done a lot of research for this show. Thanks Greg Peters Consistent Sexual Sadism can be considered a pair of Philip Disorder. This is an abnormal sexual desire that causes harm to others according to the DSM five. They're eight classifications of para phileas and parasitic disorders. Prior to drinking Rosa's blood Peter fell firmly into the category of someone suffering from a sexual sadism para. Philip Disorder. Meaning that he derived sexual pleasure from hurting others but now Peter Succumb to an uncategorized para phillix disorder known as he Motta Linea or the sexual stimulation from blood. This is sometimes referred to as clinical vampirism or R-enfield Syndrome after the character. From. The Novel Dracula. Of course, Peter would never know the name of his disorder. He only knew his taste for blood was more literal than ever before he also suspected that the graphic nature of his crimes would provoke a series police investigation so he needed to tread carefully.

Once he was presentable and weapon free he took himself to the movies on his walk home from the Cinema Peter. Thought. It might be a good idea to burn Rosa's body. Not only would this destroy any lingering evidence it would also increase the grisly nature of the crime that night Peter filled an empty beer bottle with the petroleum from one of his lamps then headed back to where he left Rosa but as Peter ventured toward Rosas body, he realized there were too many witnesses to set a fire on detective he hit. The bottle behind a nearby sign and decided to come back later early, the next morning Peter told his wife he was headed to the bathroom, but instead a snuck out the front door of their building he sprinted to the hidden petroleum, grabbed the bottle and made his way over to the hedges where he'd left Rosa's body Peter Poured the petroleum all over. The girl then dropped a lit match onto the corpse as soon as the flames ignited Peter made himself scares within minutes. He was home and crawled back into bed with his wife who was none the wiser a few hours later, construction workers discovered Rosa's charred body but the fire hadn't and Gulf the girl as Peter had hoped only her clothing and.

How this guy just poked his head out. and. I guess it was like an elevator shaft or something opened onto the roof. It's not really clear and the way that it happened that things on a hinge in the way that it happens like he'd have to just hold his neck at a certain position for that thing to like slam down on top it's not like.

THE 7 STEPS TO CREATING A WORLD CLASS SALES CULTURE

"He Nigel welcome back to the show as a way of getting started gives update. Well, it's been a busy year working on a book that comes out in a few weeks. It's called a revenue harvest, the sales leaders, ALMANAC for planning to perfect year, and so spent a couple years living on a farm. Some of your guests might remember the last time we were together we talked about moved from the city to the farm, and it's really a made undeniable to parallels between farming and leading a sales team, and so the book is unequivocally for sales leaders, executives and investors, but it's written through the Lens of what I believe might be one of the oldest professions are. We talking about sales, right? Yeah. We're talking about. Sales. But everyone's got the hunter mentality of the hunter mindset. That's. This this isn't about hunter gatherer. It's not about that. It's about. I'm seeing in the marketplace more and more companies, executives and investors looking for some quick fix some fad, some piece of technology that's going to change things and I'm looking at all my farming friends that drive their GPS guided combines. Still. Say it's still too hot. It's going to be too cold. There's going to be too much rain. Sometimes, they're going to be all these things I can't control. And there's not really a piece of technology. This can fix that for you know and so it's It's it's a book that says, listen there are timeless principles. That will get you through any selling year. And if you ignore them. Cautionary Tale. If few northern, there's no piece of technology. There's no there's no peace of fad this going to get you through it. You won't have a long career that's it and are kind of mammal brain looks for that quick fix that you know that quick meal instead of. That because the farmer mentality is if you don't. Plant. If you don't fertilize if you don't tend and you don't, we'd you don't harvest. If you don't work. Every day. I. I come from a family of farmers and you know it's up at the same time every day it's doing the stuff that you don't want to do every day. And pays off. Instead of just that end of the quarter rush and what I used to call kind of the. Roller Coaster. The quarters over people go on vacation they go to club they have kickoff they have all these meetings and everything. And all of a sudden time just goes away time doesn't stop. Right Try Time doesn't stop and. Speaking, of Tom, one thing that I see and I want to hear about your perspective on this. It's time started you're on the clock far in advance before you started doing the work. So the way that manifest is we don't finish our forecast until February. Don't give it to the team until the end of February, then we've changed their comp plans to match this new forecast. The board approved nobody on the sales team has seen it given the insight to, and now we're asking them to go do something differently without any thought to how this might affect them whether or not it's going to fly in. Oh. By the way we're already behind on the first quarter. So what type of energy does that inject into your? Then on the back side of that because we've been. So late in presenting the plan positioning the plan preparing the team, we're behind the eight ball prospecting. We're behind the eight ball on identifying the strategic accounts taking new products to market. So what's going to happen is at the end of the year when everyone is tired and wants to rest I'm anxious sales leader that's asking you not to go on Christmas vacation. Females on Thanksgiving Day eroding my credibility as a leader, and it's a perfect video for you to do walking around on the phone. You know what? What your fans now it's Thanksgiving I'll get it in. Yeah. I just did one that set every sales year ever. And because this is the time it happens what do we have? You know people take a little bit of vacation than their sales kickoff. Then somebody get comes sick to sales kickoff. Everyone is sick. Next week people are doing good. Two weeks later they get a Qbr or you know the year planning they don't get their complement until late. February. So they're kinda slacking like do I work on this too I not work on this and they don't even get settled in until March. One is over. And then all the accelerators are all back in loaded. So people were kind of hedging through the whole process that they sandbag into next year. What are they try and cram it into this year? And all this gamesmanship that didn't exist before, and now because we've missed Q. One, there's questions about should we re forecast another boys of up and it's all this nonsense it's doom loop. It is a doom loop and I think it's getting worse because too much technology put in and everyone's looking at the output at the technology and started talking to the reps talking to each other

"Hey welcome to the podcast about politics race and culture from the OC perspective I'M A. And I'm Hutagalung arena. Today, we have a very special guest joining us from yonkers new. York is Jamal Bowman he's the. Democratic nominee for Congress in new. York's Sixteenth District Jamal. To the show. Hello thank you so much for having me. It's great to be here. We don't often speak to you know members, of Congress or potential members of Congress few like somebody maybe unexcited Cossio go. because. You're win like hers was a a really big deal. You defeated Longtime Democratic incumbent Eliot Engel in a huge landslide lead your the likely winner in the twenty twenty general election because you represent a very blue district. So it's really been a super big year for you. Your Primary Win came at the height of the conversation around justice for Black and Brown lives inequity the pandemic. With. It. So really your wind came kind of on the backs of all of that. So. Give us just a quick back story shore. So the back story I guess begins you know being raised by a single mom in the projects along with my three sisters. During the crack cocaine epidemic, which projects I gotTa know which projects Oh Easter projects one hundred, fifteen first avenue in Manhattan. WanNa raise on the. Upper East side East Harlem Section Manhattan went to public schools by entire life lived in the projects in rent stabilized apartments started teaching in nineteen ninety nine in the South Bronx in one of the poorest zip codes in the country, and you clearly can see the inequality the inequity in how wherever you go in a city state or country black and Brown people seem to be suffering more than everyone else. So growing up as a black man in America who has been a victim of police brutality. The first time I was beaten by police was eleven years old and notice I said the first time happen again, the a later on. IOS Eleven hanging out on the street with my friends and being rambunctious in boisterous in doing what kids do and I guess someone may have called the police because we were maybe too noisy a too rambunctious. and. The police came over and tried to live saw curtail us and tell us a comma down. You know we kind of push back in had a few words for them. Next thing I know like I'm being done up against the wall thrones Grou- face dragged all over the floor. In the back you know except Tra, and then we'll take into the precinct and US well to my mom about this later were taken to the precinct in a coma mom to come pick me up with a birth certificate because they didn't believe I was eleven am. makes. Me Think Tamir Rice as I say that out loud rain. She comes with a birth certificate picks me up and takes me home. Didn't explain to her what the charges were if any why they approached us to begin with, they just allow her to take me home in my mom and I didn't even think to you know press charges. Report anything like that. We just kept moving and it just tells you how internalize sort of our oppression is. Right like we just accept we have accepted in I have accepted that okay. There's nothing we can do where powerless. So becoming a teacher. Being a social justice advocate within education and having the opportunity to be a founding principle of my own district, public school charter school, and being education organizers around equity and restorative justice in culture, Responsi-, schools all of that led to me. You know think about a potential run for office and why Eliot Engel while I looked at twenty eighteen election and I saw that me thirty thousand registered Democrats in the district actually voted and he won with twenty two thousand votes. Yeah. Some like, wow. This person has making trillion dollar decisions that impact millions of people and he only got twenty two thousand. Volts Yep you look at who supports him right? Who Funds his campaign we're talking big real estate. Yep Big pharmaceutical companies, weapons, manufacturers, hedge fund managers, and every institution that is hurting our community hurting the working class. Those are the people that are institutions that funded his campaign. So that's why we decide the challenge chairman ultimately were able to win in the end

Founders transition excuse me transitioning to the role of CEO and the in sort of sounds obvious that founders would do that. But. They struggle with that kind of thing. Why is that? Initially it's this mindset that being able to go from. It's my baby to the business right you start off and founder mode and you know the market you know. The product or service your customer you had this idea it was your blood sweat and tears and all of a sudden you Kinda have to step back and say it's not about me the. Achievement and success of the business are not necessarily mine. It's business and it has its own reis and it has its own people and as you grow team etcetera and so it's just mindset shift that I think founders struggle to make, and maybe because many of them are execution type people and they're not best manager leader type of person that takes. A transition and skills as well. senior that's interesting. It is It's tough to remove that emotion. From. Neil being founder owner. To. Having to make unemotional decisions a CDL.

Hopefully, it's just an iteration of it, but you have to let go at that what's best for the business maybe not exactly what you want to be doing or where your energy and passion exactly sets. Yeah boy. Okay so a lot of founders Go through burnout when they're actually trying to scale their business. What? guess ensures, but what leads to that and what they could be doing differently. I think out framework around this scaling and moving into a CEO. Yes when you're founder everything is within your domain and you're wearing many hats and you're working very hard and as you transition to see you know the role changes and the problems become more complex and the team is growing and you become and manager, and there are moderates how the role of changes which we can may Chad about in terms beds burn out I think that. Founders, get stuck in the weeds because they have a hard time letting go right as you grow your team, you have to be able to delegate. It's one of the most important things you can do give up some control and trust that you hire the right people and empower them, and so you gotta be able to delegate and I think for founders giving up that initial control or any amount of control is very hard. To do I also think we have this mentality that the media certainly sewell's that you know to be successful founder you have to work twenty four hours a day. That's that stressed the game everybody who's been successful does it and that's the only way to go about it and you know even if I got my own business I felt like well, any free time I had I should be working on the business why why wouldn't I? You know what else was I doing and there's always something more you can be doing, and so you know I got caught up in that mentality as well and I think it's easy to and the media certainly plays into that the great stories of sacrifice and. Dedication and all of these things when it's not true and So I think we have to change the story a little bit in the mindset of bit but I also think it's giving up control and delegating to people that you've hired.

Everybody liked that they thought he was being a selfish player. And you know there are some who thought. He shows a selfish player when he was campaigning for love. You know that you let other people do that sort of stuff. You don't need to do that sort of thing, so you know that sort of stuff is out there, and you know some of its fair, and some of it I think is is a little. Little Bit of piling on, but again it's such a unique position at a time. She's Sorta Roll Your eyes and go. What are we doing here when we're spending this much time talking about catchers offense, why aren't we talking about the guy at first base I mean we should be talking about why. He's not a better offense player. Right or you know the guy who they've invested in with the long term deal. We're not sure what position he's GonNa. Play this year with thick. It's going to be right might be a little bit of I, but we're not quite clear because he's played third and he's played, I played center and he's played like. What about that guy? You know so I I tend to think. I, it's time though you know. It's time that there's gotta be some level. What I don't know you know I. Don't know what that is all Sunday. We feel better with Austin hedges if he's got a three hundred on base. I mean that's better than to fifty-seven. Improve show some improvement, yeah! But I also think some of that comes with being in a better line up and. Having a team. That's competitive, so we'll see I mean when he hits the walk off. Run game seven to the world series this year I. Think you guys. Will all send us your. tweets say you, Darin, you. And thank you for sticking with them. You were. Is You hit the walk off home? Run game seven of the world series where champions of the Cova Cop twenty. Thank you to you for sticking with them and thank you Austin, for for what he did managing our pitching staff, okay? So we've decided on the Cova Cup. Because I know, you wanted a new name, I. My my My pick was survivor. Survivor to twenty twenty because it. It's actually something often mentioned yesterday during the zoom. It's about who survives. WHO's helping us at the end? It's the last man standing is yeah. I forgot who it was that, said it, somebody said the team that's GonNa win the World Series team that's least impacted by Covid nineteen doubt..

We might have doing the show from here. We'll see what happens otherwise. Who knows I might not get fed. All Right so yesterday Austin. Had You spoke and Austin hedges? about it. We've got an affinity for Austin hedges been going on since she was enable the other thing that's been going on since Austin. Hedges was enabled that people in the padres organization have wondered whether or not he would ever hit enough to be a big leaguer to be a long time Major League baseball player now that is part of the internal analysis. It's been here forever. It's nothing new as a matter of fact every time we have Austin on the show without fail Mardi tweets out the interview. And what are you wise? Crackers there will say well. What did you teach us how to like? Okay, we get it. He's not the most profound. Player that we've ever seen. But the question isn't about whether he's going to be an offensive Dynamo. It's whether you can deal or you can live with his offense. Given what it is that he brings defensively. That's always mid-western with. An elite defender Yeah and you know catchers are different and like I get frustrated with this not because i. don't see the numbers I get frustrated because I. Don't understand why people are always so concerned with a catcher's offense like I've heard a couple of different ways over the years. If you're really that preoccupied with a catcher's offense, chances are you're just upset with offense? Right like you're just upset with the offense in general. If you're zeroing in and focusing in on the catcher right now I think you also have to get to a level like let's. Let's say Brad. Osma, you gotTA SORTA. Get to that level to get people off your back, and even then people wonder well. Why is it that you carry this guy only to twenty hit or whatever? It was for Brad, Osman his career while you do it, because the guy manages your pitching staff, and I always remember to Michael Barone remember Michael Barone now. Some of you are going to laugh and say Michael Barrett. That was the guy that punched out hundred percents, Ha present ski and yeah. He spent a little bit of time in San Diego. Michael Pretty Well I. Don't know that you did. I got to know Michael Barone a little bit and I always thought he was a pretty good resource. I have no idea what Michael Perez do and now Michael Barone was behind the play the night, a game, one sixty three and I remember that night talking to him at great length about what happened game one sixty, three in karate in Colorado in two thousand seven, and I always thought that he. Had A good way about him and I remember talking to him about a young catcher coming up through the padre system they. Nick Hundley. Nick Hundley. And I remember saying tell me a little bit about Nick Conley and he says well..

"We're going to have the Los Angeles. Angels of Anaheim presumably boss down or take their own individual cars don't know. Know what that's going to be about would imagine they're going to bust. It'll be interesting conversation. Right told it'll be a six ten star. Angels will be playing at Petco Park Right. That first game is at Petco Park because they played twice. They play early in the week. Then they play late in the week I think the Monday one is at Petco Park, and then we'll have like back to back days with actual sporting events. Count with the US L. and another one which won't count, but will be part of summer camp, and Man I read a story today about eleven umpires. Is it that eleven major league baseball UMPIRES OPTED OUT? That feels significant out of seventy major league baseball UMPIRES. Now the good news is you have a whole crew of Minor League umpires who you can bring up. Yes, who aren't working and who would love the opportunity to fill in for the eleven big league umpires who are sitting out, we'll have a little bit here starting next week with the Sunday night game and a Monday night between the angels and the padres. Do you think we'll be able to watch it? I think so I think so I know that the. It's not important. It really isn't. The media's allowed to actually attend that one on Monday so I'm guessing that Let's hear right like I just want to make certain that they're playing angels later in the park. That's that's going to pick apart so since it's open to us to be able to watch hoping hoping they'll make it available for their for their fans on on TV. Hope so otherwise you're going to be tweeting up storm. Squeeze every last drop out of that blackberry. Because as we've told you before, the real secret behind the blackberry isn't that Mardi just loves the way the the. Functions I Can type faster than all of our competitors, and in her line of work, and in her way of thinking having the tweet out before anybody else. There's value with that. I know you're denying. There is really isn't more once. There's no NFL team and you can't tell you what the injury report is, and who was questionable, whose probable or limited or participate doesn't matter anymore, but no I marty Monday night. If that sucker's not televised, think about the role that you play. In saying that you know we've we've now. We've watched Austin. Hedges go three for four with two home runs. I think the same rule that applies to how. Austin for Monday by the way we'll see if we can rekindle some of that magic. Yeah, let's let's back up and running so many questions I have That'll be interesting, but. No again..

Really uniquely qualified to make a run without innings, limitations, things along those lines depth of bullpen you are. There's no no hesitation for me on that, are you? This is a world series. You feel like the winner of this sixty game regular season postseason. Without a doubt, that's a world series champ -til like that's what we should call the winner of this thing. One hundred percent. World series, the World Series Champ. The only is obviously the regular season. To be exactly the same and that's really what it comes down to. Every team goes out and plays one hundred sixty two games on a normal year, and then when you all look back at it, guess what that regular season only matter to get you into the playoffs, and then it's the team that shows up in the playoff and get hot and makes that run. Look at the nationals last year. The nationals were not a good team early in the year bigger something together found a way to make the playoffs. Obviously, they had longer than they would have. Have now, but they found a way to just get to the playoffs. They snuck in and they got themselves a ring so at this point for me. Sixty Games one sixty two. It's just about getting to the playoffs. Get to the playoffs and the world series champ is just winning the playoffs. They didn't win the regular season. There might be a wildcard team that wins the League or win the world series. There might be a team that wins a hundred and ten games that you know gets knocked down the first round. That happened there. That doesn't mean they're not. That that team that one hundred ten employees best team in baseball. Be, one of the best teams of all time, but guess what it's just like that warriors team that might be one of the greatest of all time. They didn't win the ring that team right? There is not the greatest basketball team it's. It's all about the playoffs. It's all about the championship, so I think it's a different for individual stats There were obviously you know I. You know listening to Emily today and stuff I know in the back onto talking about guy hitting four hundred. That's a great point like I i. don't know that mean. There's definitely got to be some sort of Asterix 'cause, if you at four hundred and. Sixty Games. It's not nearly as impressive as you know Tony Gwynn hitting almost four hundred in one hundred sixty two games, so there's GonNa be it was is twenty home runs going to be the record? What's the? There's all kinds of things and it's just going to be kind of a flukey thing for individual staff that obviously going to. Be needed to take seriously because that's so we get paid. So guys like myself going into the arbitration process the free agency obviously. Debating on how your numbers were, this year is going to be up for transportation, but overall team aspect and getting to the playoffs and winning a championship one hundred percent. You're the world champion I don't care if you're the padres. The marlins the Yankees dodgers. If you win, you win, you deserve it and no questions asked. So, if you hit four hundred this year, I'm not supposed to take that seriously. I mean you're GonNa? You'RE GONNA because it's probably gonNA. Help the team win a lot of games and I. Enjoy watching me rake and I'm. GonNa enjoy. Experiencing raging. So that's GONNA. Be Awesome, but I'M NOT GONNA I'M NOT GONNA. Go out and be like Yo Ted Williams doesn't have anything on me. I can hit. Like you know that's not going to be the case like I'm still going to go out and be like. Hey, obviously, I got a lot better and I had a really really awesome couple months. In to go out and prove that I can do it again next year. On in you got and whoever has maybe a fluky year if they show out and they do it again next year like? To call him a four hundred hundred, but you can. Still. That's still the batting title that still the Best Hitter, probably at your position at the very least. If you're a four hundred I guarantee that you're in the MVP votes, so. It's just it. It's going to help your cause. It's just GonNa help your team win. It's just who can find a way to help your team win for sixty games and It's GonNa. Be Really Cool because I feel like the that's one of the cool things about the playoffs staffed up. You know it's, did you? When did you lose and the enduring the season it's. It's it's Kinda. Time to make your money you got you got to perform, so you can get paid, so you can show up to work and get everything that you hope and hope and dream for but during the sixty game stretch FBI like it's really just GonNa. Be like who got the wind. Who got the loss and it's about going out there in. The way I see it is. It's a hunt to get to somewhere around that thirty five game marked. To to make playoffs, and you know if you if more games than you lose I, think you've got a really good shot at making the playoffs and I think this year is just really about winning the championship and nothing else. All. Marty suggests MLB twenty twenty survivor. You reject that you're still. That's not better than world series champ. Shoot kiddingly. Really. Twenty said. Yeah well, okay. I got another one here from one of our listeners. Topping into each other's do survive. Is that what you're saying like. Yeah okay, well like put extinguish torches and all that sort of stuff. I agree with that one needs a little bit of work for me. Everyone how about the MLB Cova Classic? Would you be interested in that? Coated classic. Yeah. That's discussed it all with rob Manfred. Discuss it now i. have currently you know he I don't think he's super busy. Baseball Twenty Twenty last team, standing twenty, twenty MLB champion okay, but you're saying it's world series champ world series, without even a shadow of a doubt champion under percent. Okay all right. Good Luck Austin. We appreciate it. Thank you very much. We're glad to know that we have something coming up here that we can talk about other than to ply and single ply toilet paper at Marti's house, so we thank you for that for figuring this all out. All right, thank you. Austin Hedges padres player rap stopping by here to talk again and I mean I do think that they are quite qualified now with no I. Know what they said in spring training, but spring training is. Not always the regular season. But. Having, players know innings limits. A deep bullpen. Things things could. And things will, things will get a little weird here. Things will definitely get a little weird here of D. H.. Runners on second base. No extra innings. All sorts of stuff like that. But.

"You know I think really. It's GonNa. Everybody's going to be impacted a little bit. I know I'm taking at least two a day at the field. Sometimes three I feel like most guys are pretty much the same think it's going to impact everybody in that way, but we'll figure out something you know. They're gonNA shower at home after the game. We all used to do it back in high school I mean. What are you doing? How's your gaming? Your uniform? Play the game. Go back in the car in your dirty, sweaty uniform. Come back home. Shower you just do it because that's just what you do, so you know I think at this point. It's just suck it up and Kinda grind along, but just appreciate that we've got. We've got our sport back in We get to go back to work. So, do you? Are you planning on showing up at the BALLPARK IN UNIFORM? Then driving home on? Again in your dirty uniform. If that would take takes no problem. Put My cleats on uniform on top on everything at home. Show up to the field. Drive home in my cleats dirty uniform. If that's what it takes, keep playing baseball. You know what gladly? Are you a big time Spitzer. I feel like it's not always a decision that the players realized that they're making I've been around enough, dugouts and clubhouses, unfortunately in my life to know it's sort of like breathing for some guys. The amount of times that people spit that feels like it might be an adjustment for for some players. Will be for me personally to for whatever reason you just. It's just something you've always done other baseball. Just spit and. I I don't know it's kind of like a habit, so we'll definitely have to make some of those. Who knows how it's going to be You know what's going to happen, but. I think I think the. The fact of the matter is there's just there's just going to be some adjustments that are going to have to be made, and you know as long as we're just playing baseball and trying to make a playoff plush I don't really care what any of those are. You know and Austin listen we can. We can joke about some of that stuff. 'cause I agree with you. You know that that guys will figure out a way to make adjustments and high-fiving things along those lines where players are gonNA physically distance. But in order for this to work, and you know this you players are really going to have to act responsibly because we see what happens when people are acting responsibly, we see all across the country, not just related to sports. So, so how does that work like who takes control like who really emphasizes inside of Your Club House or amongst the players, union guys life as we knew it, which is really really good as a major league baseball player, which is still going to be really good, even under these unusual circumstances. But we've got to be responsible when it comes to some of our behavior when we're on the road when we're at home. Like how does that work like what sort of of self policing will exist in your sport to make sure that that? Somebody, doesn't go out and do something which will be to the detriment of the entire team and potentially the entire league. That's I. Mean that's that's a great point. There and I I hadn't really thought about it. That much, but off the top of my head. really any had the things like that. Leading by example, is going to be kind of our our best friend and It takes leaders on a ball club, too. You know they're gonNA. They're gonNA. Make impactful this in in some things that are gonNA. Have a lot of impact on The young guys in the guys that are looking up to them, so it's GonNa. Take you know. I have been here like myself. There's GonNa. You Know Eric Hosmer Craig's Stamina Kirby. There's a lot of guys. On this team that they'd have a a huge leadership role and you know when when Kirby eight stand up, and he says something about hey, these smart dough home be safe. Wash your hand sanitizer you all these things, the right way I'm gonNA. Go do it because this is you know this is going to benefit everybody you know then guy like Chris. Paddock, who only has a year in the big league or so like? He's GonNa look like okay. You know what Kirby said so I gotTA BE SMART. That's kind of what it. That's what it's GonNa take take some veteran leadership to lead by example and just show the way like. Hey, we're we feel. Feel fortunate that we even get to play a season this year. Let's not noon it. Let's stay healthy. Let's let's show the world that we can do it to. You know like if a bunch of ballplayers going out there, are doing their very best to social difference in in sanitize healthy then maybe and maybe just in the public eye, we can positively impact the rest of the world, the rest of the country at least at the very least San Diego who might be watching us, and if we go about it the right way, there's no reason that we can't let this interest. Make it a very positive thing and guiding people. Yeah I hope so I hope that is the case. You're a Lakers fan. Avery Bradley at the Lakers decided that he was going to opt out from going into the NBA Bubble in Orlando. He gave out the reasons why he has a child who has had health underlying health conditions and didn't feel comfortable with it. And you know you a Laker Fan. You probably saw that, but you also as a baseball player I suspect that this will happen in in Major League baseball that somebody might opt out and Wonder Austin I. How is that player to you? How is that going to be received? If it's a legitimate reason, even if you know, there's a little bit of wiggle room there I mean how. How do you think a player will be received by you by the League? If in fact, he chooses not to participate in the sixty game season. When it all comes down to it. You're your first and foremost. You're showing up to work. You're showing your job and to to the most basic. Fundamental part of it is no different than showing up to a nine to five and getting paid, and you have an employer who pays you and go to work, so we're. We show up ready to work in that employers, the San Diego Padres so what all comes down to it it's that's your own personal family decision, which is always the number, one most important thing and then really the only other part that matters is your teammates in your organization the rest of the league. You're not here for the rest of the your here like if you're a San Diego Padre, you are yourself individually with your family and your San. San Diego Padres so I know I. I can speak for the rest of my teammates and the rest of organization that anybody that's part of the San Diego padres family We'll treated and appreciated with with the utmost respect in an ultimate like that's just their decision so I know I personally will will support anything that anybody WHO's trying to do for the betterment of themselves in their family because that's really that's that's still really the most important thing so there's GonNa be no judgment on on on our end, and honestly if if there is any of that I will do my very best to eliminate that. And get back to just supporting each other and I think that's the least you can do right now. Have you personally been been tested. Yeah. So you had that thing that that big q tip things stuck up your nose. No thank goodness I didn't have to do one of those I did one of the the the blood. The Prick on the finger blood, and that was all good and I'm sure I'm I'm pretty sure what we're what we're looking to do here in the next week. Some sort of alive attest which definitely excites me more than having. Something shoved up into migraine. Yeah I would say man I mean. That might be reason to stay home if you had to go through that thing to three times.

"He tweeted that out on Monday after the commissioner, spoke on ESPN and I wonder, was that popular opinion amongst players I I know again you can only speak to what you can speak to, but did you get the sense that that was a consensus opinion for a lot of major leaguers that there? There was likely not to be baseball in two thousand twenty. It's just it's. It's it's really. Irritating when you hear the commissioner, say that there will be one hundred percent in equivocally. Baseball season and then twenty four hours later Doesn't look like there's going to be baseball like baseball's a chance of not. It was just such a polar opposite. Statement. On Espn like it was just it was. It was tough to hear and when I think when when the guy in charge of setting season essentially says that he's not carpet. There's GonNa be a baseball. Season Anymore That's just gonNA. You know that's just that's just gonNA. Fill a whirlwind of emotions for for every single Everybody involved in baseball whether you're a player worker employees.

"Not that hasn't happened yet But it could. I mean you know if he thinks that this this is the this is the end game in countries where presidents are afraid to leave office. Because they think they're going to get jail is they. They always inevitably like exercise. More power or worried about that. So that's why it's always good to have the peaceful transfer of power whenever you can even rent so and what is the FBI do that so bad to play To play Liberal Person Mad at Meta Abby. Well in Maine in this in the last couple of years I would argue that. The thing that they did was that was really bad was they. It was they intentionally circulated the phony story about you know trump being a Russian agent and again off all the things that trump those did wrong there. That story story turned out not to have a there there and they. I think they knew that pretty early and yet they were continually leaking that to the news at an again people think of it. They don't they don't think of it. In terms of the presidency they think of it in terms of Donald Trump's. Oh screw him right but actually it's kind of you know it's not good for the country to be leaking more that that the president is a far age. If he's actually not you know and see what the so. So that's what the the the thing worry about is if this works. There's GONNA GONNA be a precedent for how to do this. You continually push stuff and you have allies in the media. Who are going to help you do that? And you know but also in terms of just like recent history three of the FBI and CIA. I think people have become so kind of like neo cons. Who Use jazz war criminals? They become so rehabilitated. Relatively speaking just by yeah trump's existence people don't think about when we just had to be at a court case just last week where we found out that the FBI was doing tens of thousands of of warrantless searches per month accessing the NFC is is a database. You know these Ya has joan assassination program you know again the secret prisoners. Let me this stuff is all terrible right objectively. They're doing paramilitary operations in like you know in seven different countries or whatever it is and stuff so bad I mean yes but yeah and I think that the thing is public opinion on that is drastically changed since trump came around. Because if you remember heading two dozen sixteen you know there was. There's a lot of anger towards you. Know the about over the surveillance thing over you know. So it's it's been interesting watching. Let's talk to Chris Hedges who has a lot of interesting things to say about About journalism in his career and it was great.

I probably lifted that from your and and we know trademark. Well we know who they are you know. They were the slaveholders they were the a robber barons. And and the railroad magnates that stole indigenous land and killed indigenous people and slaughtered the buffalo herds They are the industrialists who gunned down hundreds of American workers who are trying to organize at the end of the nineteenth century. Beginning of the Twentieth Century They are the people who A unleash the reign of terror against black people through black codes and lynching. Yeah that's who they are. I want and then I asked. Who are we and where did we come from? We came from Denmark Vesey and Nat Turner and John Brown. Harriet Tubman and Malcolm and Martin and Eugene v debs and you know were often defeated but you you know I closed by saying you know that. I don't know if we're going to succeed. But these corporate forces have by the throat and have my children by the throat and in the end. I don't fight fascist because I'm going to win I fight fascist because they're fascist right right and you did this down in walls. Yeah symbolism yes. It was perfect. Perfect was beautiful set. Hopefully somebody filmed it girl in front of the ball so they're up from a little down from that so it was right in front of the New York Stock Doc Exchange. A lot of people had a die in so and they'd splattered blood with holding signs to commemorating those who had died right in the climate disasters flooding wildfires etc.. Yeah she's my favorite neo liberal feminists monument the grown on standing the standing from the bull which is funny because I don't know how she's going to defeat the bowl she's just standing in front of it. which Georgia?

Unfortunately yeah I had Christian parentally on by the way who wrote this. Great Beasts in Jackson about environmentalism and Marxist assist environmentalism and also how we can fight climate change with out self loathing which is an interesting proposition? How do you how do you do it with well? He was saying that you reminded me of it when you mentioned the Buffalo. But he was saying that you know human beings and Interact with the environment and that per se isn't bad. It's the capitalist interaction action with the environment. And so we don't have to make it man or human humans against nature treating of the environment as inert commodity right you exploit until exhaustion and collapse and his book The name escapes me which I read Tropic of cancer is quite good. Yeah it's very good book. Yeah Chris read basically like every book. No no I hang out with Cornell West. That's like always very humbling. Because he has read everybody and then chastises me for not read. Schopenhauer Chris Chris. Well we're close calls me Chris. Chopin OPPENHEIMERFUND Schopenhauer. Funny I find very funny. Do you haven't read. Schopenhauer really not much of it. Should I go read it. I mean another still reading eating now. It's so dark the it goes over into being funny but maybe not everybody would think well. That's kind of a guard. WHO said mccarter Schopenhauer? Okay all right. So how did you get into. Let's go back to your background. Your your father was a minister. Talked talked about this. Wasn't your intention to go into journalism. Was it was my intention to be a writer writer. He wrote I mean for the age of four knew what I wanted to be. But I had this and I- I published my first piece when I was twelve in a historical journal of the history. My father's church which was very old and then I published my first piece in a major newspaper when I was in college in the Christian Science Monitor wanting that story. So you're in Boston right. At the time you know I was in so I went to college at Colgate. Upstate New York and I got a internship on the House Foreign Affairs Committee for the Summer Subcommittee on International Development. And so somehow rather than answer letters I got myself into a position where it was done during the Carter Presidency. I was reading a case study of Gulf and Western and how they treated sweatshop workers in La Romana Dominican Republic and they were killing them. They were shooting. Labor union leaders would be murdered. Found Dead in a digital and so I found this guy. His name is Sasha Vollmann he'd been like a partisan leader in Romania during World War Two and then so he was one of these European Socialists who hated Communism Museum and he went to the Dominican. Republican came a huge asset him so he was fighting quote unquote the Communists but at the same time he hated the big the corporations and he was in a hospital in Georgetown having some pretty serious surgery like his gallbladder removed or something and I found him and he had all the dirt on Gulf and Western and he gave it to me. I mean just dirty dirty stuff. Wow and so one day. I'm in my the congressman's office. This was Michael Harrington from North Shore. Boston and two guys suits come in from Golfing Western which was all mobbed up with Charlie Blue Darn and next thing you know? I'm called into the Administrative Assistance office and I'm fired from my unpaid internship and go around and collect donations from all the rest of the interns and and Hitchhike to Miami to go to the Dominican. Yeah I'll tell you the whole uncensored version and there. Was this very beautiful French. American woman named Gino and and some some movie with me. I honestly blocked out what my argument was your later. I had lunch with her. She lives in Boston Austin when I was on a fellowship at Harvard. I said General. Why did you go through? And she goes. But you told me the congressman said. I had to go. I don't remember saying I honestly don't anyway. Civic Duty Hitchhiking through Georgia with a blonde ponytail. Not a good idea and we got to Florida. We flew to the Dominican Republic and she was in high and went to a Behi- retreat. And so I was going to go out and finish the work the investigative work to write this piece about Golfing Western. And how they were breaking and murdering labor union leaders and I'd I'd no money at no resources. I'm staying in a little dormitory for the sons of Haitian cane cutters run by The Principal Church in Santo. Domingo come out the first day I run into an American woman who's the organised she introduces herself. As to Magno on your I said Oh you mean like Francisco. Come on you the guy who was a colonel in nineteen sixty five the US marines invade. He goes to Cuba. He raises a rebel force. It comes back. The Green Berets landing. Wipe them out so yeah. It was my husband's brother. Wow and so I tell her what I'm trying to do. And she said well my daughter Lilliana I was like nineteen or someone who is in her thirties has just gotten divorced but look out well no. She's offered a behind retreat. So and so and this. She was a firecracker this woman so they lend me the family car. We go out there and you're going to all these sweatshops where the foreman had these were almost the size of baseball bats and would beat the workers. Wow they were what were they were they were they were. It was textiles. It was lower Amano was a big sweatshirt areas but what were they beating them with that was they. Were like big truncheons chat and at one point they started beating on its side. It'd take a picture and that was it so the goons start except that I ran track when I was very good.

And and so I think he embodies body's a lot of qualities that are really really kind of going in style in the business and so we're going to talk about autism jointly by very special guests Celebrated War correspondent one of my heroes and journalism. Chris Hedges surprise winner. It's GonNa talk to us about a whole bunch of stuff today but we think we should start off by what you're doing yesterday down on Wall Wall Street Tell us about the protests extinction rebellion history of it what happened so extinction. Rebellion is a British based group. It's about a year old and and I think has come to the very correct conclusion That the ruling elites are incapable of reform and appealing to their better nature as a waste of time because they don't have one and as a species were completely fucked even if we stop all carbon emissions today which isn't the happening and therefore our last best chance is to disrupt the machine to carry out sustained acts of civil disobedience it's you extinction. Rebellion is a much more robust organization in Great Britain So the goal is to really shut down the center of London especially around Westminster for three weeks. They shut down London large parts of London in April for ten days with a thousand arrests. And I think that's it. I think that said that.

"That in itself isn't a reason to write a piece of the puzzle piece of yeah and I actually think honestly I think sanders heart attack is still better than Elizabeth. Warren Pocahontas not better. Sorry I don't mean better. I mean more electable against trump. Really think that. And because why do I think that because I think thank sanders can always respond to trump by challenging him to a one on one basketball game which is an idea I took from Nathan Robinson guest and. I don't think that Warren can respond to. It's getting worse than the stuff about her again. I'll support her. If she wins the nomination. But I'm just saying not just 'cause I like Sanders I honestly think he's the most electable one. I mean that would be smugly basketball but no have you seen sanders. She's good okay. MIC on trump. Coming out with like a headband fans will Farrell awesome. You semi pro the seventies headband. That'd be bad so you're probably wondering what does this mean for US Bernie thing. It means that I'm committed committed to running taking on more of the share of the carrying more of the weight because as viewers listeners. Probably know I did offer to be sanders running May I. I actually been very derelict. Supposed to send him my resume. But all this means is that I'm gonNA carry more of the load or more events in Mauri the Your Washington says no and you're going to be there because you already agreed to work for me in some capacity. It's going to be a no show job. Basically Padma Adleman. Yeah Yeah so we're GONNA have to take the Sean Road. That's what sounds good. Are you really nervous. Are you nervous about his health. Look serious there's no way it is. The Americans have such a short attention span and their ability to follow. The news is so so limited that three new cycles frenette born. Remember that you had a heart problem. So it's it's not like it was in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight or ninety two when this would Paul Saugus how to health issue. Ninety two You know he had to leave the campaign because of those whereas that's not gonNA stop. All he has to do is is look as look fine. A couple of months from now in the the debate and remember Dick Cheney had three heart attacks and was de facto president. So or we gotta we gotTa talk about again. Uh It being the impeachment yeah. Let's talk about impeachment. Matt you have a piece in rolling stone the whistle blower probably isn't it's an insult surreal whistle blowers who used the term with the Ukraine Gate Protagonists. Now when you wrote the city you know it'd be as much of a release such a shit storm I didn't I guess because I wasn't following how the rest of the news landscape is much so I didn't realize that there. Nobody else had really gone there yet. And so you know the such total unanimity about this story right now that now if you have there's even like a little bit of Tom Push back on this. The sort of the entire weight of twitter surrounded the story pretty quick right. And what's funniest last week when and we talked and we had Pussy Rides Nadia. Yeah we talked about how hard it what to talk about Ukraine Gate with any skepticism or impeachment with any reservation then just from strategic reservation not even ethical moral stuff right. That's we separated those things now and then you know sure enough you write this piece and you are totally attacked and personally attacked. It's not just that people disagree with you. It's that people you know. I love the way people talk you by comparing Glenn Greenwald. I'm sure that really hurts your ego. Very stupid yeah. Meanwhile the Pulitzer prize-winning Glenn Greenwald look one of the things that's happened and in the news landscaping. I've going to deal with it but but I think it's not a small thing like what what they do is they. They're all these words that are just sort of bad like once they repeat enough enough. That Glenn Greenwald is this villain. It's almost like Emmanuel Goldstein. In one thousand nine hundred four like sort of invoke his name the sort of scare people. You're a green right right. And there are other things like you're an Assad like Tulsa Gabbard Saudis Putin. There's only a sort of words words that get dredged up and what happens people. Not so much that it's like with me but people other people don't want to deal with it. You know right and you said that people don't deal with this because this happens and I mean I think it does have an effect it's like it's it's exhausting. Just it's stifling. Form of stifling. Should we set up. The shirt was really saying is so so when basically to go back there are two types of leaks basically in the news. There's here's the unapproved leaks and approve leaks right if you like if you go back in history. The classic pair is snowden comes out with his thing and that's an unimproved lakeway he comes out and says there's a vast illegal surveillance program. Everybody goes nuts. He ends apparently of the country. And it totally. You know rips up the entire news landscape. That's like an unimproved story. That's like not supposed to come out and when those things happen. The full weight of everything falls down on those kinds of whistle blowers right but the intelligence community community is constantly leaking to the news and these are not really leaks. They're really more like news releases right so an example once known did his thing. There was a leak and zone read about the soon as book where they leaked. The contents of of conversations between the al Qaeda al Zawahiri and a bunch of confederates around around the world the term was the conference call of doom. And so what they were doing. In this instance the they were getting bad. Press for having an illegal surveillance program so they wanted to kind of turned turned the news cycle and say hey surveillance is good too. We catch the stuff right. So that's that's an curate. It's an approved news story right right and and so this is this is really like you know sort of officialdom saying we're going to give you a little bit of the hidden story and because we have motos here right right and so all I was saying was. There's a difference Gino whistle blower. WHO's a person who comes out with something that is legitimately dangerous and is this is going to basically the end that person's life you know they're gonNA they're gonNA lose? Their jobs are going to face prosecution. They're gonNA have to leave the country and sort of cataloged all the people who who've gone to prison. You know the the the new practices if you talk to a reporter about you know. They'll they'll charge you with the Espionage Act Now in this instance in the Ukraine story. Sorry this person I I you know this is an approved. New Story doesn't mean that the information is wrong. It just means that this is. This is part of an establishment narrative that that advances this story that significant institutional powers are behind right so there is a significant portion of the Democratic Party of the press us etc that is sort of pushing this narrative against trump. So that kind of leak. It's not like a single person's outrage conscience and what I was really saying was this is the other kind of story presented as this lone person coming out and I don't I didn't think it was that you know and and I think that's the that's the context that we have to have when we when we look at stories like this and they're instant reaction was essentially you love trump. So right I understand because obviously I mean I got re tweeted by Breitbart awesome but it happens so right but this is a real problem album. Like the inability of people to judge ideas on their merits or respond to them. I mean there are going to be times when there's overlap. Politics will make some some strange bedfellows. And yes when you write this piece sure will the right wing try to weaponize it for their own sinister purposes. Yes does that mean that. You're the same as them or that. You're writing this for that reason. No and you know I. It's like it. We see this also war stuff. I mean this is policing mechanism and what troubles me about. This is my take in. This is not common or popular and I think probably a lot of people who are going to disagree with me about this like I. I look at the story in the context of a lot of stories in the last three years that are leaks from the intelligence community. and to me. There's an accumulated problem. Here which is why I'm a little suspicious. It's just this not everyone's going to see it that way. I understand that but if you if the immediate reaction is to be like you can't have that opinion or else you're this this this this pro-putin and your pro-trump and all that stuff what's going to end up happening is the only place that people are going to feel like they can get their opinions from safely is going to be the continually newly narrowing little strip. And they've already you see already like Oh that came on on Fox. That can't be true that this race so now the the only place that people can get their the news basically is the times the MSNBC's late whatever it is you know then you only have to police that little piece of territory and control the whole narrative and and also pushes people to the right because if people this story and this perspective resonates with a lot of people who are not on the right and if you're only letting you know you're lucky you've you've rolling stone but if you're trying to shut those people down people like you down which we already know. People are trying to do because they'll tweet it both of us tag US tag rolling stone written and they'll be like literally shut it down there Saadah. Then you're you. Would you are trying to push people like you let say off of more mainstream platforms farms. And then where would you go if you WANNA be published. That's why the news landscape has become pretty sanitized lately but it's also people like Joe Rogan have are bigger than CBS practically those two phenomenon. Kind of go hand in hand like if you if you very heavily police. What goes into you? What used to be the traditional news outlets and then people are going to end up outside the margins but the margins get bigger and so now so it's such a great great metaphor when the US like took away they revoked snowden passport written? It's such a great metaphor snowden. DidN'T WANNA go to Russia like he's he's so anti anti Putin he's so anti-totalitarian like he's not a particularly leftist you know and he talks about. WHO's in this new book? He just published Permanent record in northern southern the political spectrum as opposed to left rate. This is such a great metaphor like the United States forced him into the arms of Russia. Literally he he needed the country to go to. He couldn't go back to United States. Russia saw a good PR opening. They welcomed him and he went there which is like a great metaphor for what's happening here..

"Resistance. It's the belief is Daniel baragan once told me the great radical priest that the good draws to the good even though there's nothing around us to justify that belief the Buddhist call karma. And I think that that's true. I think that having covered the revolutions in eastern Europe. I saw how these great dissidents. I was in the magic lantern theater in Prague every night with hovel that you keep that other moral narrative alive, and you don't always know who hears it what affected has and it's only sustainable by faith. And I don't mean kind of any orthodox religiosity. It's what Niebuhr called sublime madness. The belief that an active resistance in itself confers freedom. And I think that's right. Even if you fail, and it's bleak out there. But we can't use the word hope if we don't resist I have children these corporate forces have us by the throat, and they have my children by the throat. I don't know if we're even going to survive as a species, and we may fail, but you know, as parents, we have a duty to make sure that at least our children say they tried and that will require forms of self sacrifice. It will be unpleasant, maybe even dangerous. It means removing our faith in a stab systems of power which have proven unable to deal with the most significant challenge to human life, which is climate change which was first dentist as a problem in nineteen o two or nineteen o five. I mean as the world devolves people are going to look back at us and say, we're the good Germans did. We just sit there and watch the trains roll by and do nothing. I don't want them to say that about me. Chris just thank you so much. It was a pleasure to talk with you. Thank you.

Greg Kelly is the executive producer of ideas, and I'm Rachel Giza sitting in for Paul Kennedy. We do not become a Thomas and free human beings by building pathetic tiny monuments to ourselves. It is through self sacrifice. And humility that we affirm the sanctity of others and the sanctity of ourselves. Those who fight against cultural malice whether squatting in old warehouses or as the occupy movement did and taking over a public space. Resisting and standing rock or refusing to be broken by our prison system have discovered that life is measured by infants often unacknowledged acts of solidarity and kindness. These acts of kindness like the nearly invisible strands of spider's web, spin outward to connect our atomised and alienated souls to others this belief held. Although we may never see empirical proof is profoundly transformative. But no this when these acts are carried out on behalf of the oppressed in the demonized when compassion defines the core of our lives when we understand that Justice is a manifestation of love. We are marginalized and condemned by our sociopathic elites. Those who resist affectively in the years ahead may not be able to stem the economic decline the mounting political dysfunction the collapse of empire and the ecological disasters. But they will draw from acts of kindness, and the kindness of others, the strength and courage to endure it will be from these relationships once formed the way all genuine relationships form face to face rather than electrically that radical organizations will rise from the ashes to resist.

"So there's always been a very dark side to the enlightenment that utopian belief that we could create the perfect society if certain segments of that society were wiped out. You you talk about marks and quote marks at length in the book is Marxism kind of utopianism completely. I am not a Marxist. But Marxist, critique of capital is probably the most important critique of capital he and remember that it was heavily reported. He and angles angles. Of course ran text off firms. He knew what he was talking about and marks used a lot of angles data. So if I was running a hedge fund on Wall Street only, hire marxists because they understand that capitalism is about the exploitation of labour the maximum of profit, and reducing the cost of labor that that's what Mark's got. So Marcus solution is not something that is as you Topi as any other kind of fantastic belief. I mean, the problem with marks and I graduated from Harvard vanity school. So I kinda come out of Calvin is that he doesn't grasp. Human nature. He's know once he gets into his solution. I'm not with him. But in terms of his study of capitalism. He understood younger stood the nature of capitalism. Anderson out worked, and he understood where it was going marks warned that capitalism had built within at the seeds of its own destruction. There would come a day when capitalism would exhaust its potential and collapse marks did not know when that day would come. But he also knew that capitalist expansion was not eternally sustainable unable to expand generate profits at past levels, the capitalist system would begin to consume the structures that sustained it. It would prey upon in the name of us therapy, the working class and the poor driving them ever deeper into debt, and poverty and diminishing the capacity of the state to serve the basic needs of ordinary citizens. It would as it has increasingly automate or relocate jobs, including. Both manufacturing and professional positions to countries with cheap pools of labour, this would trigger an economic assault on not only the working class, but the middle class the bulwark of a capitalist democracy that would be disguised by massive personal debt as incomes declined or remained stagnant and borrowing soared politics would in the late stages of capitalism become subordinate to economics leading to political parties hollowed out of any real political content and objectively subservient to the dictates of corporations. But as Marx warned there is a limit to an economy built on a steady in the scaffolding of debt. There comes a moment. Mark's new when there would be no new markets vailable and no new pools of people who could take on more debt capitalist oligarchy. Meanwhile, hoard huge sums of wealth seven point six trillion dollars stashed in overseas. Taxations executives tribute. From those. They dominate in debt and impoverish capitalism. Would in the end Mark said turn on the so-called free market along with values and traditions. It claimed to defend it would in its final stages. Pillage the systems and structures that made capitalism possible it would resort as it causes widespread suffering to harsher forms of repression to maintain social control it would attempt in a frantic last stand to extract profit by looting and pillaging state institutions contradicting its stated nature. Well, I wanna dig into corporatism and capitalism of it more you write that capitalism would attempt quote in a frantic last stand to extract profit by looting and pillaging state institutions contradicting its stated nature. What is capitalism stated nature that it that the market determines behavior that when capitalist entities are unable to generate profit and collapse, they should die. And of course, all of this was exposed as a lie after two thousand and eight and of course, with the impoverishment of the American working class. It's difficult to expand markets than as Marx. Understood these entities cannibalize the structures that make a capitalist democracy possible. We spoke earlier about the education system of, but this is just now writ large throughout all aspects of American government. Seventy percent of US intelligence. Is privatized corporations like Bose Allen Hamilton which gets ninety nine percent of its revenue from the US government. We have prints the brother of Betsy DeVos making a push to privatize the war in Afghanistan, which is not gone, particularly. Well, in fact, of course, we're losing it. But that doesn't matter because you have the war industry is making a killing. It's not good for anyone Afghantistan. It's not good for us. Certainly not good for stability within the Middle East. But it is good for this narrow segment of the country..

"The American empire is coming to an end. Welcome to ideas, I'm Rachel Giza sitting in for Paul candy overseeing this descent at the highest levels of the federal and state governments is a motley collection of imbeciles con artist thieves, opportunists and warmongering generals. And to be clear, I include the Democratic Party, Christopher hedges is a Pulitzer prize winning journalist and the author of America, the farewell tour a book, which dissect the body politic of American culture, and whose prognosis is unambiguously stark. Short of a sudden and widespread popular revolt. The death spiral appears unstoppable, meaning the United States as we know will no longer exist in a decade or at most two. Predicting the integration of America has been something of an industry among the chattering classes for a while. And it's excel A-Rated in the last couple of years, but after the sandy hook school massacre in which twenty children were fatally shot hedges wrote an article in twenty thirteen for the walrus magazine where I happen to be working at the time that article was uncanny in the way, it looked ahead at the America, which was to come in it, he quoted the late American philosopher, Richard rotea who said, and I'm quoting here that when America's breakdown beginning begins the gains made in the past forty lack Lack line. line around America section by homosexuals will be wiped out jocular, contempt for women will come back into fashion all the resentment which badly educated Americans feel about having their manners dictated to them by college graduates will find an outlet that was in twenty thirteen and those words now seem prophetic while he wrote it even before them. Yeah. Were they well there are intellectuals in the United States who understood what was happening, but they were pushed so far the margins that their voices were not heard Sheldon woolen. For example. We lost a couple years ago taught at Berkeley and Princeton wrote democracy Inc. And these figures who call as Rory did, of course, called out the folly of neoliberalism were silenced in essence that critique was just unpalatable across the mainstream. So I think the the serious critics of culture, Neil postman. They knew what was coming. There have been other moments of deep division in crisis in America, the civil war the great depression, the red scare Vietnam on and on. It goes, what makes this particular moment, distinct indifferent? We've trashed our economy, we've de industrialize the country. We've allowed our economic system to be seized by global speculators. And that coupled with the century long salt against radical and progressive movement's beginning in World War One but with the red scare after World War One. The Palmer raids we saw a reemergence of those movements and unions because unions like for instance, the the old United mineworkers union was didn't come back into existence until the nineteen thirties when Roosevelt permitted to come back into existence. So with a breakdown of capitalism there was a resurgence, but we were still in an industrialized country. We still had fact. Series. We still made things. And that's where you get this kind of golden period of capitalist democracy in the nineteen fifties. But alongside that was a steady assault beginning with the nineteen forty eight Taft Hartley act, which makes it very difficult for unions to organize you saw a chipping away of new deal programs. Remember Roosevelt with the massive unemployment said, if the private sector is incapable of providing jobs than the government has to provide abroad twelve million jobs, social security and Roosevelt says that his greatest achievement is that he saved democracy. So we lost the radical progressive. And then after the war in the name of anti communism. They disemboweled liberal institutions themselves ending with this parody of what it means to be a liberal Democrat in the Clinton administration the Clinton administration or the Democratic Party under Bill Clinton, essentially became the Republican party. It took over the issue of law and order, which was really kind of code for the institutional racism, which African Americans continue to suffer from it was Clinton who expand the prison system from seven hundred thousand two over two million in the nineteen ninety four omnibus crime Bill deregulating the FCC so now we have about five or six corporations that control what ninety percent of Americans listen to and watch was under Clinton that we destroyed our welfare program and seventy percent of the original recipients of welfare children, it's under Clinton that we destroyed Glass-Steagall which and you have a banking crisis in Canada because critique..
