Bidenflation Is Intentional. Here's Why
"We're living through a historic inflation cycle. And just now the media is starting to recognize and realize it and they all have their own separate spin on that. Give an idea of how severe what you're living through is. The intentional debasing, the intentional destruction of your currency. Some estimates show it is high as 60%, but it's somewhere between 40 to 60% of all dollar bills ever created. Has occurred in the last year and a half. Half. Of all dollar bills have been reintroduced into the money supply in the last year and a half. Now, some people say inflation is right around 7%. We'll go through all the statistics. The New York Times says inflation hits 7%. Highest since 1982 supply chain's lag, we explained why supply chains are impacted by this. Inflation is likely much higher than that, because the government gets to pick the basket of products of how they measure inflation. They get to bias themselves into that. So if you're just measuring how much Netflix subscriptions have gone up, if you're measuring things that at least have some downward deflationary pressure on them, largely in technology, then you'll be able to get to a 7% number. But if you look at meat and poultry, new vehicles and household energy, three things that most American families need to survive, the average would be 11.9%. 11.9%. Now, this happened not just because of Biden. We have to be honest. There is a shocking 54%, according to The Wall Street Journal increase in new spending. Since the virus and our response to it are immature and inappropriate response
Inflation is Cheating
"Inflation is cheating. Inflation is nothing new. Almost every declining civilization participates in an inflation cycle. Copernicus, who is known not for his monetary theory, but instead for his scientific and Korean discovery, he famously said nations are not ruined by one act of violence, like 9 11, or poor harbor. He says, but it said nations are ruined gradually. And in an almost in perceivable manner by the depreciation of the circulating currency, through its excessive quality. It's tempting when you're running a country to want to increase the money supply. It's tempting because it's an easy fix of the sugar high. But it's cheating. And it's lying. Inflation put simply is the declining of purchasing power. It's the rate at which the value of the dollar or the currency is falling. The Roman Republic famously did this by cutting the corners of coins or what was once a gold Roman coin. Eventually became a copper coin. We used to have legitimate silver in our nickels. And our quarters here in America. Now we don't. Now we have some sort of mixture.
Sebastian Talks to Former Green Beret Jim Hanson
"Why is it that conservatives, they're not even in the beta stage? They're in the cradle sucking their thumb. They've got their binky toddlers thrown up. Right. And they don't do IO. If you think of just let's think of January 6th for a second. If no, let's go back. A call I had after January 6th, we had what, 14,000 National Guard deploy, 12 foot high fences. It looked like checkpoint Charlie D.C. was Berlin in 1970, raised the wire, razor wire, okay guys, about raised the wire topped the 12 foot fences. And rang in and said, as we were seeing these images of the convoys, the caravans coming from the south where the let me and Biden he should have calls into this show and says, why doesn't the GOP just buy a thousand let me in Nancy t-shirts? And we stand at the 12 foot fence in front of the National Guard and have people take photographs. I thought, dude, you should be doing IO in the bowels of, you know, the CIA. Fort Pelosi tour guide. Right. Seriously. And what did the GOP do about that? Nothing. Zilch. No, no. So can you first diagnose? Is it the old saw that? Well, we're too busy being individuals and making money. Why do concerns not do IO? I think that. Yeah. Well, because the creative class is mostly on the left. And that grew out of. But why? Because in 1945, in 1950, it was ours. It was all Hungarian Jews in Hollywood. I mean, it was all emigres who loved America and made those amazing films. So what? Did we just kind of surrender the territory? Basically. You know, if you look at what happened, it was the universities and the leftist intelligentsia invaded those places and used them because they understood the value of the culture war. And we were more if your wicked smart on the conservative side, you generally go into business. Yeah. And that's just a thing. So I think we've now recognized that we've been losing that war so badly that we have to do something about it. And so we have to get over the whole thing that people always say on the right eagles don't flock. Right. Yeah, but lions hunt in a pride, right? So let's start ripping those hyenas and jackals of the left. The woke left into shreds when they come in our

'Biden Went Down to Georgia, He Was Looking for Some Votes to Steal'
"This will probably put a smile on your face. I love this. This is courtesy of the great Mark Davis. Morning host and my dear friend on 6 60 a.m. the answer in the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex. Biden went down to Georgie, he was looking for some votes to steal. He's in a band as parties way behind he's looking to cut some deals. He expected Stacey Abrams in an atmosphere that's hot. But when they asked if she'd show up, she said, boy, I think that. I guess you didn't know it, but you and Kamala are through. And if you care to take a look, you'd see we're done with you. Now we've played second fiddle, but it's time for something new. The squad and I, riding high, we're coming after you. Joe said girl, I hear you and it might be a sin, but I'll take a nap.

"Is good pleasing and perfect. How in the world will you ever know the will of God for you if you don't let God renew your mind? It says do not conform to the patterns of this world, but be transformed, like again, I'm exposing my age, but when I grew up transformers was the thing. I mean, I could sing the whole song Transformers more than meets the eye. I mean, there's a whole thing. We would be in the house playing with these little transformers. It'd be like a police car, and we just do the little thing. And it's like, bam, just this huge transformer like, how does God take you from your insecurity? How does God take you from all your jealousy? All your inadequacy. All your stinking thing, how does God pull you out of the pit? He changes your mind. You got to understand this about your mind. Your mind keeps no record of success. It only keeps record of failure. You realize that you think, on average, you think 40,000 negative thoughts a day. You realize 85% of your thoughts are reoccurring thoughts. And so you know a lot of us we wait tell we're in a bad place. We rehab. But can I encourage you in 2022? You need a prehab. You need to get your mind right before you get in the gutter. You may get your mind elevated. You need to get your mind on the things above. Oh, I love this. In second Timothy, watch what God says through the Paul the Apostle. He says for the spirit of God. He has not given us timidity, but gives us power and love and self discipline. Now, the other translations say power, love and a sound mind. If you study the Greek word for sound mind, is literally translated, disciplined thinking. Translation. God gave you the ability that when your mind gets low, you can bring it back high. Or as the Bible teaches us, we capture every thought and we make it obedient to God. I'm not thinking that way about that person. I'm not thinking that way about this situation. I'm not thinking that way about last year. I'm not thinking that way about the Panthers. We're gonna be blessed. I'm not thinking that way about so and so. Come on, and I appreciate anybody. I'm gonna get my mind right. You get your mind right, you get your life right. You get your, that's why the Bible says we put on the first thing is the helmet of Salvation. I put on God's thoughts over my thoughts. When you think about yourself, listen, your mind was not meant to thrive. It was only built to survive. So if I want to thrive, I gotta get scripture. I gotta get God's thoughts. I gotta have, you know, you need in 2022, you need a confidence ritual. You need to build your confidence back this next year. You didn't start walking around your home and start declaring over your life. Don't listen to The Serpent. Don't listen to the liar. Don't listen to the accuser of the brethren. Don't listen to the one that only shows you all the bad stuff that happened to you. No, you gotta get all God's thoughts. You gotta say, no, no, I'm more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus. No, I'm the head and I'm not the tale. No, I'm the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. No, no, no, no, if God is for me, who can be against me. Come on everybody down to build a confidence ritual in 2022 that you're gonna start leaving your home in the morning feeling like I'm gonna be okay. Sometimes your mind gets into a bad place and you ever feel negative. When I get negative, I get scared of myself. I'm like, I need to eat right now. I feel like a walking Snickers commercial. And I'm like, when I get low, 'cause listen, don't kid yourself. We all go through highs and lows. We all have good times and bad times. Don't listen. Don't believe the live Instagram. You're comparing your lows to somebody else's highlight reel. Everybody has lows. Everybody has bad days. Everybody cries. Everybody has pain.

"Think for me, I'm not gonna be able to put exact words on it, but this year, I can just tell there's some things shifting for me in how things line up in my life as far as kind of wanting what you have. You know, wanting to feel more aligned in my work and wanting to feel more aligned and what I'm I want to feel passionate about what I'm doing daily. And I haven't always felt like that in this year has been pretty tough for a myriad of reasons. In that way. And so I think for me, just feeling challenged about wanting more and but not quite sure what it is yet. You know what I mean? Not knowing exactly what that looks like and wanting to just get more clear about what it is and then come up with a plan to get there. And if anyone is able to come up with a plan and to execute on that plan, it's you. I like it. I'm a planner. I would love to have that in my DNA. But anyone who knows me knows, I'm kind of the most spontaneous and also the biggest procrastinator this side of the world. I will, you know, I'll give you props though between the two of us. Let's speak specifically about the podcast right between the two of us. I'm definitely like a write it down outlying. Just want to be ready and you are always like fly by this a year, but I'm gonna tell you something. You're amazing at it. Because I have so much practice. You are always astounded at what happens when I just let you run the show. When you don't plan things, it works out. Well, this is what I told my mom. And some of my college roommates know this. Like, I never went to class when I was in college, and I never really studied. And I waited till the very last minute to do anything. And the reason why I still do that now, almost 30 years later, is because it worked well for me. You know, if at any point in time, I had been working on, let's say, a term paper in last minute, and it didn't get done. Maybe I would have learned my lesson. You had no consequences. At all. It always works. Yes. That's true. Vibe. But I'm waiting. For the day. When it's not going to work well for me. That just might be your path. I will say this though. My son, Roman, inherited that. He is a procrastinator and he gets by with it because he hasn't had the consequences. Yeah. Right. So I wish there were other traits that I have that he had inherited, but that's the one that he got. And I apologize. Well, maybe he also got the one that he's really good at it. So we'll see. It's worked so far. We'll see. What is something that gage has inherited from you? Oh, that's funny. Other than your whole face. Yes, yes, he is by little Mini-Me. He, he is inherited from being that he's not wrong. He's never wrong. He just won't admit it. He'll do this thing and he'll prove him wrong. And he'll be like, oh, well, that's not exactly what I said. So I'm not wrong. He definitely get that from his mama. Oh, you're poor partner. No. Between the two of us. It's like you two are ridiculous. I know. Sorry. Well, at least you know it and recognize it. Yeah. I own it. It's so weird to think that we are in the final days of 2021. Partially because so much of this year kind of seemed like an extension of last year. Yes. And I do remember when we started this year, one of the things that you mentioned, either on this podcast or offline, you talked about how folks thought that 2021 we're going to be waving a magic wand and things were just going to be noticeably different. Right. And that didn't happen. That did not happen. And we're absolutely right here. And so I'm looking forward to 2022 cautiously because we still are in the middle of this pandemic that's turning into an endemic. And we still have so many things that we need to do. We're still so broken and so divided as a country as a community as a global community. There's still so much separation and room and space for us to be better global citizens and to lean into each other rather than building up walls between one another. I agree with you. And it's not something you want to say out loud, but it feels like some of that motion that we saw in that pressure that we saw came from events that kind of forced the issue and as things have quieted in some ways and not others, it does seem to put space there and people are like, oh, it's all moved along. So I hope that we've pushed that momentum far enough that it continues, even if it's not at the exact same pace that at least people continue to push that momentum forward to challenge their thinking challenge the status quo be more intentional about their decisions. I hope that continues. Yeah. Me too. That's my hope for the world. That's our hope for 2022 folks. Right. So looking forward, what is one thing that you were looking forward to in 2022? I am looking forward to not having to do homework in 2022. That is my immediate excitement. We have already got a few things planned and as far as trips and some activities that I'm looking forward to, I'm trying not to fill up my calendar now that it's empty, which is my first instinct. So I'm looking to looking forward to starting with a little bit of rest. And then finding my next challenge. I love it. Do you think you're going to go and get any sort of certificates or any more professional development or courses under your belt? Oh yeah. Of course. Not right away, but at some point I'll probably do some certifications, some executive type stuff. Got it. Perfect. Yeah. What about you? What are you looking forward to? I am looking forward to parenting a teenager. Oh, girl. Yeah. So insane. In January Roman will be 13. So more drama, more stories to come. But actually, and this is probably something that we will talk about in the podcast in 2022. I'm looking forward to in the first time in 40 years really developing and having a relationship with my father. One day with his permission, I will share with this podcast family, why he has not been in my life for the last 40 years, but he is now. And so it's a new season, and I'm looking forward to seeing where that goes. And y'all, podcast family, you'll be with us on this journey. So we are glad that you are. We're glad that you tuned in for 2021 and you've been a part of our journey. And all of the things that we've discussed in all of the things that we have done, we've done it together, and we've done it hopefully with a little bit of humor for each and every one of you. I can't wrap it up any better than that kanji. It's been an amazing year. I'm so glad we're still doing this. If you had told me what a year and a half ago, we'd still have this many episodes out and bringing new content. I would never would have believed you. It's been an amazing journey with you. We are still in the midst of this journey and we look forward to seeing where this road that we're on takes us. Podcast fam 2021 has been so incredible, so spectacular, full of challenges, full of highlights, and we hope that this podcast has been one of the highlights of yours. Reach out to us on social media and let us know what your highlights and maybe your challenges have been and things that you would like to see us present and conversations you would like us to have in 2022. And we will, just like the cast of Friends, be there for you. We're always there for you. So with that being said, as you go into 2022, guard your health, mental, physical and spiritual, happy new year. Take good care..

"What about you? What was your highlight this year? Oh, let me think. Okay, well, for me, it wasn't just an event. For me, I think the highlight was the full pivot I did in my career. Dare I say leaving behind the practice of law. Yeah. So for me, yeah, it's starting this new career working full time in the equity ecosystem. Definitely has been the highlight and also the biggest challenge of 2021 for me. Yeah. Well, just for the record, when you were contemplating that change, it was really fun to see you explore that idea and consider it in a couple of different ways. And I can tell you and I think I've said this before that since you've made that change. I mean, you are just like a completely different person. You have this completely different glow about you. And I've seen you stretch and change and grow and big, big ways, this whole year, as you've taken that on. Thank you. Welcome. Yeah. I mean, for so long being a black woman in predominantly white spaces, white male spaces as an attorney who worked in private practice at large law firms and then working in-house for a financial institution, I never really felt a like I'd belonged and be that I was really fueling and living my passion. Yes. And then also part of me just never felt like I was my authentic self, right? I've shared before on podcast that I kind of wanted to fit in to places that I was never meant to fit in. Yes. And you and I started our nonprofit last year along with some other leaders here in the Frisco Texas area to start to really shine a light on discrimination and inequities that exist within communities and kind of to give parents the opportunity and ability to teach their children about racial awareness and empathy all at once. Having the chance to also do that in the workplace now, just gives my entire life meeting. It looks really good on you. Thank you. You're welcome. Like these box breaks. I was going to say, I wasn't going to say it. I let you say. No, you know, but I will say what's happened in 2021. Is there has been kind of a shift? In the dialog. And in the conversation about racial awareness and what happened is, I think, in 2020, after George Floyd's murder, a lot of people were looking and searching and listening and learning and reaching out and connecting and were open to conversations and were open to learning. We remember right after his murder, Amazon, like a lot of the top Amazon best sellers were books about anti racism and white fragility and understanding privilege and oppression, and those conversations grew quiet in 2021, and even in the workforce. I think in 2020, there was this push to hire all of these diversity officers. There was a push to talk about it. And that kind of stopped a little bit in 2021. So for me to be in a position in my workplace and to be supported in trying to keep these conversations going and to keep the learning and education going, has been really, really important to me. And has been the highlight of my year and probably of my adulthood. That's a good one. You think sounds a good year, yes. It's not without its challenges, right? Because as much as I can say that my new job has been the highlight of my 2021, it's also been the biggest challenge of my 2021. I was in a position at work where I did some anti bias workshops and training sessions for a percentage of our workforce and one of the folks that attended in the post workshop survey said that I was teaching people how to be victims. And so it's still made me realize that there are folks that don't have that growth mindset and still have that fixed mindset. One just can't hear what's really being said. They're just like, they've made a decision and that's where they're sticking with it. They're going to be fixed on what they want to know and they have their position and they hold fast to it. Which is what we try not to teach our kids. Yes. We try to teach our kids to be open to understanding and to learning. But to know that there are adults out there that still have these mindsets, that's what I think is most challenging for me raising a black son is to know that no matter what I do no matter what we do no matter how far we've come as a country, no matter how far we've come as a community, there are still folks out there that will see and judge him by his color and not the content of his character. Yeah. So that, for me, like I said, it's a kind of a double edged sword. Highlight and also the challenge, but I come from strong stock, you know? I'm the descendant of enslaved African Americans on both sides of my family. So my people didn't sacrifice and go through what they went through for me to give up when faced with a challenge. I'm going to keep going and I'm going to keep going with my 90s hip hop plan every step of the way. I mean, that's the motivator right there. And just pushes you right on. Sometimes not the clean versions. Never the clean version. Wait. No, when the kids are in the car, I just don't listen. I can't go once enough. I just turn on some males until he gets out of the car. Really? Yes. Now my kid needs he knows a little bit about biggie and Tupac. What he does know about is NWA. Oh, no. No, no, no, not that one. There's not even a version of that that would be okay ever. So my challenge highlight the same. What has been your biggest challenge of 2021? Oh, man. I mean, finishing school was definitely a challenge. I mean, it wasn't easy, obviously, but I.

"Hey podcast family. Welcome to motherhood in black and white. My name is congee. I'm Tara. And you are joining us for our final broadcast of 2021. Tara and I want to thank each of y'all for rocking with us this year, which has been a year of tremendous growth and change for so many of us. But we do know is we're pretty much still in the same place as we were in 2020 with this pandemic still hanging on, right? That's true, yes. Yeah, so I mean, we think about 2021, Tara. I'd be curious to hear from you. What are some lessons that you've learned from this year? We know what the highlight is. You know what the highlight is. So podcast family, if you have not listened to us, you are going to hear something about our girl Tara. What was your highlight of 2021? I graduated with my master's degree this year. Just a couple of weeks ago. Yeah. She sold grown up. I'm all grown up. And she mastered it. I did. I love it. So let's talk about that journey. So you are of a certain age. You have to tell what it is. It's, you know, it's unlike 90s R&B and new edition. You could guess. No, I'm 42. You are 42. Okay. No, I'm curious. So do you ever feel uncomfortable telling your age? No. No. A badge of honor. It just doesn't. I mean, ask me again, I guess in ten years, but it doesn't mean anything to me. I mean, I've made it pretty far along farther than some people thought I would, so I'm proud of it out of your age. That's right. I'm proud of this accomplishment of earning your MBA. So tell us a little bit about how it was that you in your late 30s decided to go back to graduate school and walk us through that decision for you. I always had MBA on my list. I, as a kid, even knew that that was a pretty big deal and we've talked about it before, but I graduated with my undergrad late. I was 30 when I graduated with my undergrad degree. You know, I was doing it full-time working. And I knew I always knew I'd go back and do my MBA. I just didn't know the timing. And then once gage started school, it started to make more sense. And then I landed in this job a few years ago. And based on what I was learning in my role and how it was going, it just was the next logical step. So I went ahead and got started. How old was your son gage when you started graduate school? He was 8. Yes. He was 8. And you were still working full time. Oh, yes. Yeah. One of the things we hear, Tara, is that some moms, when they look at going back to school or pursuing additional education or taking up a hobby or taking up anything, just something for themselves. It's that they don't have any time. And it seems as though for a long period of time, maybe for that whole 18 year period when our kids are younger going through adolescence until they reach adulthood, we kind of push pause on our lives and focus a lot on them. So it must have taken a certain level of strength for you to prioritize you. Did you feel that? Yes, I was concerned. I knew it was going to be hard. And I think what really got me there was at the fastest pace it was going to take two, two and a half years, the slowest pace, maybe three or four tops. And I think I finally was just like, you know, that time's going to pass anyway. I'd rather just get this done. I just had to make the decision to do it. Just do it. And know that I'm not going to cook for my family for a couple of years, and they're going to have to feed themselves and they're going to live and it's going to be all right. And they lift. And I lived. Your husband and son survived. That's right. And possibly thrive. Doing just fine. They're doing it. That's right. What is it that you found to be the most challenging part of going to school and working and raising a young son? I think it was the mental load. You know, we've talked about that before. And it wasn't always the actual workload. Sometimes it was just the fact that I could never really rest. I always had something that I knew I needed to be doing or working on or there was always something to do. So I think for me, it was just having to make sure to find time to give myself a break and not mired down and always need to be doing something else. The mental load was tough. What did you do with yourself during the breaks? I did jigsaw puzzles, as you know, and I would try to find creative things to do. I started doing these paint by numbers in the brakes. We'd catch up on movies or try to do stuff with gage and really make sure he got a little bit of my time on the brigs. Unfortunately, especially because I went spring summer and fall, the brakes were usually just a week or two at a time. It was kind of tough. And you went during the pandemic as well, right? Yes. So your courses were online. Yes. Most of my courses the entire time were online. I did most of my courses online. They had an MBA program that worked that way. Through my school. And then I took one in person class this semester. If you were talking to one of our listeners who's thinking about going back to school or doing a full or partial pivot in their lives, what advice would you give? I would say don't count yourself out just because you think it's going to take too much time. When I started, I said to myself, I'm just going to do one or two classes, a semester and see how it feels, and then I found that I could manage. So I would say just sit down and come up with a plan that makes sense. Don't be in a rush to knock it out as soon as you possibly can. And let me tell you something, the guys. I did well, but I did not get straight a's. So please know that they don't put your grades on your diploma, so you don't have to show up and go 90 to nothing and do the very best possible thing you've ever done and burn yourself out. You can just go and really relish the learning and really enjoy the experience and take your time. Yeah. Great advice from she with the master's degree. That's right. I'm gonna have to now that you've leveled up your education and you've kind of leveled up your status. You kind of have the Cred to earn a little bit more of my support. So when you say something now and you make a suggestion now and be like, well, that's Taro with a master's degree. I told everybody it worked out to start calling me MBA. Just start calling me MBA. It's fine. I love it. Own it. And flaunt it. You deserve it. And I've loved being a part of that journey and just kind of watching you as you've navigated so many things like the challenges at work and challenges at home. And you've just done it. And then you've done it great job. And so congratulations. Thank you. And for the record, you've done more than just watch. Carried the load for the podcast, really giving me grace when I was underwater so you've been super supportive. So basically what you're saying is everybody just needs that support system around them. That's true. It's through colleagues or coworkers or friends or partners or family, just make sure that you have a support system in place and really lean into that support system. Instead of thinking that we teach our kids as well. We don't know what's going on with you. You got to let people around you know. That's right. That's right. You got to ask for that help. Yeah. So let me show up. We know what my highlight was..

East policies are often saddled in manifesto the policies. They don't particularly from dove. But i kind of have to have to keep members or certain empties happy. So i think the democrats both actually quite enjoyed sitting in a room. I you know if we can lose this. Do you wanna ditch that while doing year. That's we'll kill. Butch thanks to these by clearly came back to by live dams. I think finding politics. Senior level of ministers and senior so spokespeople usually quite quickly just get dumped the rationality and the basics of it. Even at the time we'll sorry nervousness within the liberal democrats about the potential long-term consequences for the party. I can't remember somebody writing at the time that you will. Then lead and nick clegg might discover that he had led his party to a catastrophic success. We always knew konishi. Lose a big chunk of otis. We always knew we'd lose even people who are more conservative or more lay. We knew we're taking it very early on fest week or so. We had this Be gets together. Whatever pays people from liberal policies across europe who are much more used to coalitions and they all say the same thing is basically the same old policy. You gets clobbered in a coalition dying mercury quote. We're very aware over the time. The smaller policy negotiation always get smashed. So we kind of knew it would be bad. And we roll braced for the fact. There will be an electoral impact to what we're doing. I think we weren't braced for quite. How significantly was i think. He's a politician. Don how huge impact wouldn't serve Dream it was reaction was much more extreme. I think in the uk nails where politics thoughts of how the party managed coalition. And i think partly frankly because of how kardashian's viewed people much more used to coach in europe. So then there's sort of the betrayal if you like of not delivering every piece of your manifesto was seen pretty much worst prison. I even remember. Negotiations negotiations took five days and people like the country won't coat they'll be riding on the streets. This'll be mad news. I'm reading my meanest.

"Happy consumers are happy and developers are happy when win win. Maybe but the other possibility is that. Because the mac app store is just not something anyone uses. I don't think a lot of people see it as a destination to consume apps. It's also possible that users we'll just skip the whole experience and kinda forego getting ios apps. On max. I don't think that's actually what's not going to happen. I think that's what's going to happen because the concept of smaller apps on the on a big screen. It's gonna take a little bit to get used to so if you have a channel where you can consume them really easily. You'll give it a try. If you really have not opened the mac. Or which is what i imagine. A lot of people who own a mac have never done unless they absolutely needed it for something. Then they're not gonna go there and look for ios apps and maybe developers will be able to convince people to go into the app store and download apps. I think that's mostly going to be inbound links and it's not going to be the kind of thing that i go to the app store to get stuff so abstract is not going to have the same impact and advertising might have some impact but then it really depends on the app and it's going to get really problematic so i think unless apple does something something something big for the mac app store to make it relevant and make a useful before the m one wave comes and sweeps all the mac users. I think the future of ios on. Mac is not going to be a strong or even possible. And i think for the most part people will just prefer to use. Ios apps ios apps belong and. That's on their phones or dad's ipad os. and so. i think that's kind of a do-or-die for the backup store The realist me thinks that nothing's going to happen. And this is just going to be a failed opportunity. That will maybe maybe apple will try to do something within the for future. The hopeful in me wants to see more so i hope apple. We'll do something if some of them apples listening. Please do something. If you need ideas. I have a whole bunch. But for the most part if you're a developer and you have an ios app. I think it's always going to be worth it to make it available on the maps or just don't expect anything too crazy yet. that's my take. That's what i'm gonna do now last. At least it's no secret that i like me some scooters and looking at the numbers i'm definitely not the only one. I'm pretty sure. I said this multiple times but the numbers continue to show me that i'm correct. Donald's of lime inboard. Which are the two most popular scooter. Rental services in the us have reached new post endemic highs this summer actually over the last few weeks combined. The pair was downloaded more than two hundred eighty eight thousand times in the us last week and a similar number of the week before and in the same week last year downloads are roughly half at about one hundred and forty seven thousand for the pair based on our estimates the figure represents the peak downloads also of twenty twenty one hundred and forty seven was the most that they got in the numbers. We're looking at now. Could go up from here. It's hard to tell the trend. Here is i think much lard larger than just scooters as a big city settled into a post lockdown lifestyle many pre pandemic habits and routines will change and morph in if what we saw over the last year continues to me..

"In two thousand. Twenty developers released on average three hundred ninety two new apps through the mac app store every month month. Yes the actual figures range between the low three hundred four hundred so the average is kind of a good estimate for how active it is for context now. The app store the iphone app store. Soft forty thousand new apps on average every month in two thousand twenty. That's one hundred times more but let's continue this story because so far in two thousand twenty one. The average of a number of new maps actually dropped. And now it's at around three hundred and forty three but the variances also growing drastically and the new low end is now at around the low two hundreds not three hundred now. So what you know. Why do we care about this. Why do i care about this. I think that with the new processor. The promise of ios apps on desktop became real in. I personally see a lot of potential there for many developers. I think it's gonna take a little bit of tweaking and it's gonna take a little bit of understanding how smaller apps not full screen. Apps can work on a desktop. But there's a lot of opportunity there. And i see it. I see it for apps like ours even but there's a problem there because this can really go into different directions. Once enough m one equipped computers are in the hands of consumers and just given how many apps will become available kind of instantly users will be forced to us the mac app store to get apps. Now that's one possibility. They'll just need the apps and they'll go to the mac app store and get the apps boom apples..

Five point four million dollars in july from the app store and google play combined. Now if you rewind june just a little bit. The total was three point eight million so one summer month and an increase of one point six million dollars. That's a net revenue. So that's after. Apple takes their cut in after google takes their cut. Now just i looked back to see what that amount amount still and peacock brought in one point six million for the whole month in february february of this year so between february and now they've gone to the point where they're making more money and now i believe. This demand is a result of the current. Were no longer in lockdown. But we're not really out in about situation and it's coupled with a lot of kids were just glued to their tv's because there's really not much else to be between schools not being operational and not having anything else to do outside now with continuous summer comes to an end and thinks in real life resume. I think so. I say that because we're looking at revenue coming from iphones and androids so mobile devices. Were not looking at tv sets in a world that's quickly evolving into phone first streaming no longer a home only kind of experience. I've said it before. And i'll say it again. I think we're witnessing the early landgrab days of video streaming in us as viewers means. We're gonna get loads of this counts. We're going to get new content. That's really easy to access. And we're going to get all of that even if the economics go against the platforms. I'll take it. You know so while. I think it's eventually to get back to where tv kind of ended up before the days of netflix. That sort of stagnation. i think it's gonna take a while. And i think where we are going to enjoy having content on our mobile phones. I also me personally. Maybe i'm just old school. I don't watch a lot of content on my phone..

"Our employees and how we deal with our customers. Yeah and i think it's it's a combination of all of those things and it's food that's good for delivery. I think is going to be continued. How a lot of people if you're bored of cooking and maybe you're not quite sure that you want to go back to restaurants yet. These are good places to get delivery or a starbucks case just in and out really fast aaa as well. Just go in and out even if your dining and you might dine outside so i think it's just interesting to see how consumer habits will shift in terms of how much loyalty they have to these to these companies. Well jason point. You've made before. And i know starbucks has lagged the other two but the mobile app that domino's and aaa have developed really as key to their success. I yeah i mean there are just. I don't understand how any business out there. Today can't be focused on a mobile presence. This is just where the consumers are and that is not going to change. and so the companies like chipotle starbucks I mean domino's papa. John's they had the wherewithal to make these big investments into to take this chance so early into the game and it's really starting to pay off snaps. Second quarter included an adjusted profit. That apparently no one was expecting daily. Active users are up revenue per user. Is up an shares of snap up more than twenty percent on friday maria. Yes so when you think about social media in general i think the real question is how much time can people waste on these apps. Every single day and snap has continually proven that. It's a lot of time so they reached nearly three hundred million daily active users daily times but on the app per user grew over sixty percent. Last quarter revenue was up one hundred sixteen percent revenues up over one hundred percent in north america ninety four percent in europe eighty six percent and the rest of the world so people are spending a lot of time on the apps. It's an integrated part of their daily habits. And if you have those top five ten you have snap. You have twitter. You have tick-tock. Facebook and instagram people will rotate through all of them. Throughout their days on average a user of social media spends over two and a half hours every day on these apps and you kind of filter between all of them and so i think that snap specifically continues to prove just a lot of people spend a lot of their time and that leads to a lot of advertising dollars and spending on on these platforms. It is interesting to see how this business has grown because when they were going public a lot of the questions were around the monetization but as you said their ability to not just help people waste but also to satisfy. Advertisers has been so key to their growth. Yeah i am a person. I always say. I'm an advertiser stream. I get any targeted at. There's a ninety percent chance. I want it and i buy it and so you see all of these social media's they they understand your spending habits better than you do a lot of times and so i don't mind it i go. I know that there's a lot of concerns. I like scrolling through the app seeing targeted ads for stuff. Because a lot of times..

"We hear the news, Josh is leaving the show. And, you know, he's I'm, I'm sort of boomerang back and forth between absolutely ecstatic and somewhat devastated. How do you feel I am mournful BUSTER? I am wistfully nostalgic. I think back of these last few years of questions that were blown of, you know, hoisting a couple with Josh, I'm thinking about our live show during all star week in Washington last summer. And I'm I'm I'm sad is how I feel. I'm very sad. Josh Mitchell, too me, too. I'm obviously excited for the opportunity that awaits. But boy, it's, it's sad to go now I have a question, you know, free agency usually. Happens after the conclusion of an entire season and we'll get to our quiz in a minute. But when you took your thirteen year, three hundred thirty million dollar offer. Couple of things, you know, we've gone through cap talk here. Like we need to. I don't know. I'm just I'm so bereft, and I'm all over the map with my emotions over here. I just have questions too many questions for our limited amount of time. But anyway, we will plow forward and do what we need to be doing. Yes. Yeah. Todd. It's out again, is showing that he's a nicest person the world because he basically, I just teed up Josh forum like someone sitting in a seated a dunk tank, right? And Todd's guy who intentionally miss right, rather than take a free shot at him. Todd, what's that about? It's just you know it's just my nature. I'm I'm, I'm generous person. I'm an optimist by nature. I think that, you know, these free agent opportunities are few and far between over the course of one's career BUSTER. You may have been in different places at one time or another over the course of your long. Yeah. Just a coup. Just a few and me. I mean I haven't worked fulltime anywhere since nineteen eighty nine so just can't me out. I took my. Legal baking skills once from New Hampshire to Nashville and marketed it down there. So I know exactly what you're talking three agents. Wow. Yeah. Exactly. And this does certainly create an unexpected quandary with a uniform and logo quiz because I'm in the midst of dynasty, what is it like eight years running? Remember running, and, and before I know I won the first one you won the second to okay? And so far this year. Josh is ahead by two. But now he's bailing out season. So we need a rolling from the chief executive of our uniform and logo quiz Todd. What the heck are we going to do with the situation? Well BUSTER, like me. You're old enough to remember the nineteen Eighty-one baseball season the split season. And there's a great book about that by my friend Jeff Katz, the former mayor of Cooperstown, and, you know, that required some some some thought and I think I'm gonna take this route as well. We cannot move forward, you know, with Josh's numbers, like I mean, it's just, you know, there's no way to do that cleanly. So this will conclude this part of it. We're going to pick up afterwards with fresh records. And I think that's the only way to do it, it Solomon-like. Splitting the baby Troy, Troy Farkas stepping into the role that Josh. Yeah. Previously held. Yeah. And I think Troy needs to come in with a fresh clean slate. I think you need to approach this with a fresh clean slate as well. It's everybody has zero zero records. You know when the trophy is in grave. Polished up, and we send it to a Josh, you know, who, who will be luxury aiding, you know, his three hundred thirty million dollars thirteen years, a trophy. He's getting a trophy from the for first half champion. Mathematically impossible for you to catch me now BUSTER, that, that, that's what I'm hearing. Yeah. I mean we can't make eight the results. I mean you just, you know, I mean, I to the winners belong the spoils in a couple of minutes here three lead. Yeah. That guy quit in midseason. Bailed in midseason. Everybody gets children. Don't you know, like yeah. Someone is like you know, he's halfway through monopoly game that he's sorry. Gotta go who wins that throwing one at two hundred here at my three game lead. That's what I'm hearing. But yeah, yeah. Yeah. Would you. Yeah. Would you would you rather joshes stellar numbers to this point carry over to Troy? Or do you wanna start.

I don't know. All right BUSTER, I will need you back for conversation with Tim, not to mention the conversation with Todd Radim coming up a little bit later. But first, let's get to some news in notes from the day, the cubs and the Mets. And there was some good action on the field but the real action came off the field. We'll get to that in a moment on the field. Pete Alonso had a big home run, and it set a record this Paul hammered deport right-center, they won't even chase it this ball is gonna go. It's a home run to right center field as Albert down more junior took two steps and just gave up Alonzo has tied the game and set the New York Mets single season branch is rookie record for home runs. He has hit twenty seven surpassing Darryl Strawberry. And this game is tied at one breaking the record on June. Twenty third unbelievable. That call. On WCBS so that made it one to one.

Call in the cubs radio network that made it five to three in the bottom of the eighth. That was the final and after the game. Mickey Callaway was left to defend his bullpen decisions in this one. Consider using this as that inning develops because because we're not gonna use them for five outs. It's the bottom long. Maybe going to the last two. No, no. We've said it all along that is are closer and we we're going to make sure that he stays in that in that comfort zone. No. Twelve pitches in eight days. Is that not a situation where you're willing to go five when he's been that lately used again? No, we're not gonna use them for five outs. I know I know you guys keep on asking, but my answer is going to stay the same. So that exchange continued to get more and more heated eventually reporters needed to be escorted from the clubhouse.

Meanwhile Matt e halt Mets beat writer for Yahoo was on ESPN radio on Sunday night, talking about the situation and saying why this could impact Calloway moving forward just wasn't a whole a team thing. This was just one player in the manager. This wasn't a situation where like all of them will will going at it, it was just one guy who was very, you know, up in arms about it. I mean I I'm not sure I mean I it's gonna be very interesting with the fallout is tomorrow, because, you know, there's certainly a lot of eyes on this.
