Fresh update on "hoover" discussed on This Week with George Stephanopoulos
"From ABC News It's this week here now chief anchor George Stephanopolous. Let's talk about the Republican Party and CPAC Chris Christie history seems to be repeating itself. Again three weeks ago, and Mitch McConnell saying the president bears responsibility for the siege. Kevin McCarthy says the same thing, Kevin McCarthy says he packs saying this is Trump's Republican Party. Mitch McConnell says he'd vote for him in 2024 C. Let's start with the McConnell comment. To me. That's not groundbreaking. McConnell has supported every Republican nominee for president, and when he's asked that question, he says, well, trumps the Republican nominee. He did say he wanted Trump to be the Republican nominee, he said. If Trump was the Republican nominee, he would vote for Trump. And so that's me. Wasn't ground breaking it all the bottom line is this, George You know, Donald Trump is not a departing two term president. Like George W. Bush was and as a result, he's got an opportunity to come back again. If he wants to, and we're gonna be some of the party who want him. There could be some of the party who don't but what is consistent is many of the policies that will pursued over the last four years. Take aside the personality. Take aside the tweets. Are all those policies or things that Republicans support. So this is going to take some time. I know everyone's anxious, have a resolution of this issue. We are literally 40 days since he left office, So let's all take a deep breath. The party will work its way through and when Joe Biden And these and the Democrats start T put policies forward. They'll be things for Republicans to oppose as the trump presence. He was never really about the policies. No, it was about the personality and look. While he has certainly defeated candidate he is by no doubt the defacto leader of the Republican Party, and certainly CPAC is that good for the Republican Party. It is in terms of His base and keeping them engaged and on board and we'll see that today from his speech today he will really focus on the policies he will focus on conservative principles limited government. An individual liberties. But from what I'm hearing is going to really lean in on appealing to working Americans across this country, every race, every creed and every color now that is good language, But he needs to follow that up with action, and that will be important. But the key is for not to focus on the personality but to focus on the policies and those that are upset with his tone and tenor. They weren't going to vote for him anyway. It needs to be more on the policy. Two things one. Donald Trump lost, never won the popular vote in any election, and when he also lost the electoral second while he was president. He never ever broke 50% in support. Third He is the only presence since Herbert Hoover and lose the White House. The Senate and the House If you guys wanna keep him, okay, because that is electoral defeat number. Let me say one thing. The Republican Party More upset about tweets this week. Then they did around the policies of $1.9 Trillion the Republican Party built itself opposing the new deal. The great society. They are now four spending but against tweets, and that is a morally bankrupt party. But I do want to ask you about Andrew Cuomo. We saw those headlines this morning. A second person's come forward sexual harassment. Allegations. Can you survive this? No, he shouldn't. I mean, honestly, you know, when you think about someone who was in a position of power like this on we know we've been here before. We've had these conversations around this table and you take advantage of your relationship with women in the and I believe these women I always stand with women. Then you should not be in a position of authority to the core. Question. One is women need to be heard by all of us all expecting to have the capacity to step forward and be listened to second. It has to be a robust and transparent process. Not one that he came up with the attorney general. Whatever it is, he doesn't have his own judge. It has to have legitimacy. And right now what it is is the process itself is being questioned, let alone What happened, and for everybody involved. Given that it's a governor, etcetera at this, it needs robust transparency and a process that has legitimacy. Whatever concludes, and people need to have the space. To say what they have what they believe happened to them, and we have to respect that space. Yes, And I think the key that is right. This is certainly troubling. Working from key Democrats, Jerry Nadler says. This is very troubling. And we've had state senators one calling him a monster. And he must go. And the key thing is, as Raam says these woman should be heard. We should listen to them. They should have the environment in the space to speak. Also the notion of due process for the accused. But what we're seeing is instead of isolated allegations potential for a pattern of behavior, which is very disturbing and aggressive investigation needs to into 32nd is that I agree with what everyone said about people and the women in this instance, have you heard these are very serious things. But I also want to caution. You know, there are a lot of people jump to conclusions on Brett Kavanaugh. What happened there on day? I think we need to hear from Governor Cuomo. We need to be able to hear from him. He needs to have an opportunity to say. What happened with from his perspective and independent investigation. Absolutely. Okay. Thank you all very much. We're gonna be right back after this from our ABC stations. Is why you can feel confident and choosing less is last to fabricating. Install your new shower door, glass bath and.

Fresh "Hoover" from John Bachelor
"Look at a map of the United States. You try to figure out when you have the really recognized temperatures. Most of them is still from the 19 thirties and so forth, mainly in that period when carbon dioxide levels well below what, even somebody like Bill McKibben one There were 280 parts per million instead of 4 20. You still had all those extreme temperatures? So I think in effect by looking at greenhouse gasses and ignoring photosynthesis, you're making a huge mistake. One last date him. Is we now have 13% well, greenery on the surface of the Earth. Then we had 30 years ago. That's the size of North and South America. So the desert air getting strong are getting small growth is starting to move north and south. This is all generally beneficial and you read The New York Times and they said all this stuff ready should abstain of the Hoover Institution. I'm John back. John, We can't keep putting this off. Okay? I'll clean the gutters talking about your dad. Well, what can we do? He wants to stay in his house. We can make his house safer. Yeah, I worry about the steps. Perfect world. There are no steps, but he does have steps and that banister only goes halfway up and all those little throw rugs are falls waiting to happen. So what about his prescription meds? If he forgets and takes him twice, he could get really dizzy, right? We could get him one of those daily pill. Counters, and he should have some sturdy hand grips in the bathroom and shower. This is all easy to do. You know, he's a proud guy. He's not going to take all our fussing lying down. That's the idea..

Interview With Evan Kuo
"Welcome back to imagine twenty twenty. I'm yonaha coutts and today. I'm glad to join by co co founder of ampleforth ebonics of joining. The i'm glad to be here. And i see you're wearing a costume for this halloween themed interview necessary. I i know it's not a very scary costume but this is what had around the house so you'll have to forgive me right. It might be scary if you stand up. Exactly i'm gonna sit. I'm gonna sit camera token upward for those who haven't seen any your past interviews. Who might not know. You wanna give a background kind of who you are and how you got the blockchain. Yeah totally so On my background is in engineering. School at uc berkeley to study kind of mechanical engineering and also computer science got more and more pulled into that direction of robotics but then you know after graduating quickly went into the startup world and eventually kind of Teamed up with my co-founder brandon aisles. He's also kind of a computer scientist. Said he's more of a a google search engineer And the time of a twenty seventeen after therion was really taking off We started to kind of think. About what sorts of applications block chain. Technology might be interesting to explore We had both been introduced to bitcoin years prior. We both kind of didn't fully believe you know it would be as revolutionary as. It wasn't about an interesting and anyways we kind came to this mutual conclusion. That the most salient application of blockchain technology degree the be monies and then began a journey asking what sorts of new monies ought to be created are can be created with this new technology and in particular. We're interested in non. Collateralized currencies like bitcoin as opposed to redeemable collateralized currencies like tether anyways Ampleforth is a cryptocurrency like bitcoin. Except for the number of units in your wallet can increase or decrease does so each day based on price exchange rate so it accepts a price as an input as a proxy for demand. If there's more demand and supply than increase the total supply of ample directly to use our wallets and proportioning there's less A demand and supply than we decrease the quantity of units proportionately from user wallets and the design of this crypto currency was actually meant to address the limitation of fix supply commodity. Money's like gold and bitcoin and along the way We kind of we were. We were funded by a you know. Really kind of reputable leasees were also advised by two members of the hoover institute which is a political and economic thing at stamford in their independent capacities and anyways long story. Short upon further analysis We also realize that this new kind of incentive mechanism or protocol Might introduce a different movement patterns to the space and so that's really interesting because most of these cryptocurrencies very very tightly correlated And it makes it difficult to kind of make them useful. In baskets of collateral assets or to construct you know robust systems on top of it and so two things one we designed it to address the limitations in fix apply money and two we noticed that And hypothesized that it might have novel movement pattern. That could allow to decouple for mass. It's like bitcoin. Which makes it useful for. Diversification at basket of of crypto assets. So that's kind of ampleforth in a nutshell okay. Well it does seem like a like a great idea does addressing those problems. You mentioned You know obviously knipling. The price fight supply and demand. Classic out it's an economic officials. But how do you actually change the amount or the value in actual you can hold it in a in a special wallet. And what a flip on keeping my ample in foot. How does your network right. That's a really great question. Actually that's the kind of the one technical breakthrough here That we take advantage of its The the the ampleforth protocols able to increase or decrease apply across all wallets proportionately without a transaction between pierce and the way that happens is but we adjust this kind of global coefficient of expansion if you will And by adjusting that single variable once every day. It's actually not we do it. But the protocol does so once every day automatically You know the number of units in all wallets whether they're in cold storage or not an increase or decrease now if your wallet your ankles being held on an exchange in the exchange tends to pool these wallet addresses so the jane wallet Quantities will automatically increase in decrease according to the protocol But if somebody's custody in your assets in pulled it then it's the responsibility of the custodian to make sure that the accounting is up to date. Because if you're if you're are in exchange really what's being reflected near-balanced might be just some entry in the database not what's actually directly connected to a wallet because they pull wallet addresses and therefore the certain exchanges that integrated ample have essentially propagated that accounting Into into the wall balances or the balances that are displayed to users. But yeah kind of happens automatically. So that's kind of the novel thing would never in the past people to do that. Like increase or decrease the quantity of units in people's wallets without a transaction between pierce and. That's what allows us to happen in a scalable way with just a single transaction per day And so yeah it's cool. It's elastic and it's also. Non diluted mentioned this earlier like bitcoin.

"Chummy chums. There is a fellow working at a company in the netherlands. Okay i'm in shaved for awhile sam. He's he's wearing upper the same and he has an interest in the dark web.

Well well to to the credit of the minister. He didn't reveal all of the pin code. Only some of the digits. So i think they're about to missing and so this inventive young germans to twenty tries gotta clean. Well that gained him some notoriety but he's is now in the pipe is again because he has uncovered what appears to be a serious security breach which has been happening in the netherlands. He found that someone for months has been gone onto snapchat. Onto telegram onto weaker with wicker. Weaker is a encrypted a messaging service a bit like signal telegram yet. Weaker is particularly beloved of drug uses bluetooth. Only one or my i. No no no. You'll think you're thinking of different. Yes wicker isn't just for local. Contacts can be anywhere.

Say no no you that you took your test on this date and we've now got the results for you or can you pay this amount of money to get now. We decided we're going to give you some treatment. Go to this site and shook pretty cuttittas but more that you also get their social security number and you can begin to do all kinds of fraud with that all and this is a bit scary okay. They discovered that the private data of celebrities was also sale and even crime jones. There is a chap in the netherlands. Code you have to excuse my accent because it's very very good. Jan van den. He sure everyone's going to recognize her. Well our friends probably will he in the netherland. that's yesterday. He is famous because he is a crime journalist. A former police chief he receives the same kind of full-time police protection. Which is afforded to the dutch. Royal family super the squadron of bicycles for threat. Seriously because he's considered so much for target to his work in the past assisted in the capture of criminal sneaking. Read all about him on. Wikipedia is being upset so he goes around town with like a dozen people him yes. He's got bodyguards. He's got the police looking after him and so he doesn't want his personal dress. How tall is this guy. Jesus he's going to be quite. So i say that about a lot of people how y'all so yes so he puts put seeming danger because of course he's a person of interest to criminals and these are criminals. Can you tell me where he lives. News phone number and is social security number you can imagine. He's not terribly pleased about this. So this journalist daniel a etc He got the prior consent of individuals. A number of people a few hundred people and he did a request he said i would like information about these. Hundreds of people approached the scammers. And said how you thinking of making a purchase just as a little test can me details about these people and he confirmed the authenticity of information. It should been offered for sale and it was correct so this is the legitimate information. They even posted screen shots of the computers with access to the databases now the dutch health service. They say they haven't found any evidence that they'd been hacked. But he screenshots. Suggest in thi- job it exactly. Yeah they're twenty six thousand workers and cool central employees working inside the dutch health service hoover access to this information and many of them have course at the moment where they working at home you pitch and that makes it easier. I would argue for them to pulse on the dates criminals or even just photograph their screens.

When the FBI Spied on Martin Luther King Jr.
"A new documentary out today called. Mlk fbi which traces the ways in which the fbi was surveilling. Martin luther king junior towards the end of his life as well as other black activists in an attempt to tamp down the civil rights movements directed by legendary filmmaker sam pollard. This documentary is based on a nineteen eighty one book by historian david garrow as well as documents released by the national archives in two thousand seventeen and two thousand eighteen quoting the atlantic. Mlk fbi arrows attempts to stifle the civil rights movement through coordinated efforts to spy on king with the hope of discrediting his righteous public image with king as with many black activists since the beginning of the twentieth century. The fbi surveillance wasn't an isolated obsession. It was part of a long running effort to keep black americans from acquiring institutional power. Pohlad told me the film traces. Exactly how the surveillance of king started how it was conducted and the effects it had on his life end quote using tons of archival footage and interviews with firsthand witnesses. The film illustrates how. Fbi's surveillance of black americans began as part of fbi director. Jaeger hoover's obsession with rooting out. Communism believing black people to be more susceptible to political manipulation as their efforts became more focused specifically on martin luther king junior and his growing influence. The fbi sought to expose his extramarital affairs as a way of discrediting him to the public and his followers but director sample are noted to npr's fresh air quote would hoover didn't bank on was back in the sixties. The press did not take the bait. They didn't reveal the personal lives of these public figures. They didn't do with john kennedy. They didn't do with others and they didn't do it. With dr king and quotes and while this documentary serves as a needed reminder. That martin luther king junior was not universally revered in his time there could be wearing that paints too negative a picture of him by including personal details like the affairs he had producer. Benjamin heddon said a our approach however quote he wouldn't be d- mythology someone he would simply be portraying him with responsibility and sympathy the way he would subject in his documentaries who was not known to the wider public and quotes and hannah georgia's said in the atlantic quote. Mlk fbi offers an important corrective to prevailing myths about king and his principles of nonviolent resistance. Which were not in fact. Widely embraced as my colleague. Van newkirk wrote in two thousand eighteen hostility toward the civil rights. Movement turned into a cherry. Pick celebration of the revolutions victories over segregation in over easily caricatured gap toothed bigots in the south and quotes and continuing georgia's. The reality was that opposition to king into the racial progress. He symbolized was restricted by region or by political affiliation diplomats and republicans alike had turned against king by his later years especially after he voiced objection to the vietnam war. It's impossible to separate the fbi's decades long commitment to tracking black activists from its relative failure to address the credible threats posed by white nationalists including those that surfaced with last week's deadly attack on the capital the fbi surveilling king and using dubious reasoning to do so isn't altogether shocking for much of the country's history sabotaging black rebellion by any means necessary has been integral to preserving white political power. The new and still contested development is finally accepting black people as active participants in american democracy and quotes.
How To Get on Podcasts as a Guest
"One of the most free questions. I get asked about podcasting is how do i get on other podcasts as guest and its frequent for good reason because people know that podcasts are powerful way to market themselves to get out there to be known. Nobody wants to be ignored. But how do you get on a podcast. You just use cold outreach. Do spam people in their inboxes. Asking to be on their podcast. What is the most effective way to regularly show up on other podcasts. Well i'm going to tell you share with you my system so you can lineup guest appearances for the rest of the year. First of all. I want to address something. That's very very important. One of the things. We all have to come to terms with no matter where you are in your entrepreneurial. Journey is understanding. Why you should be on a podcast. Not talking about the benefits here. i'm talking about. Why would a podcast host. Won't you on their show. You have to honestly answer that question for example. Take a look at some of the bigger podcasts. Out there W f by marc maron. Joe rogan the jordan. Harbinger your show. Why is elon. Musk being interviewed by. Joe rogan. Why did richard bring it on the dribble. your show. Why did president. Braga obama get on w. f. with marc maron. How did that happen. That cold email. joe rogan. No probably the other way around right so the first thing we have establish is the more value can add to an audience. The more likely it's going to be that you're going to show up on that podcast. Let me say that again. The more value you can add to an audience the more likely you will be a guest on that podcast so elon. Musk shows up on. Joe rogan because joe rogan knows. His audience wants to hear from him. He sought after the something here. There's something that he can offer. That makes it worth him trying to get him on the show. One of my favorite podcast interviews is with jamie fox on the tim. Ferriss show and tim for a shares that it took him years to get to the point where he knew jamie foxx enough to convince him to get on his podcast. He had to put a lot of work in a lot of time. A lot of sacrifice a lot of investment and. I'll talk a little bit about how he actually got jamie fox at the end and how relates to today's lesson. Why did tim ferriss go through. All that effort will because he knew the jamie foxx would be a brilliant episode who share incredible stories. He has a lot of value to add. So i want you to start thinking in that way. Yes we all are not jamie fox or president barack obama but we can add value to an audience and we could start somewhere we will have to start with the can show right. We can start with smaller podcast with audiences that are more niche that can really benefit from what we can offer but a lot of us get disappointed that. Hey i'm reaching out these podcasts. And they're not getting back to me. I can really offer a lot of value. Omar will one of the reasons why they're not getting back to us because they just never heard of you or they don't really have any kind of rough of what you can deliver so we're going to solve this problem immediately. One of the best ways to get on a podcast. If your brand new is to be noteworthy that means you have to show people that you can deliver for example if somebody wanted to get on a podcast and they just reached out by email and said hey podcast. I'm an expert at seo. I think i'd be really valuable to your audience versus somebody who says hey. I'd love for you to have me on your show an seo expert. I should talk about how. Google has become the dominant search engine and y. Here's a link to that ted talk hoover's opening the email whoever's reading the email whether it's the host or the executive system that works for the host. They have a lot more mature work with now. They have a reason to say. Yes they have a ted talk to watch and say. Wow this person's credible they really delivered Enough people in that room were willing to listen to this person. He commanded an audience. Might be worth having on the podcast so you have to really give them something to say. Yes. this is why your own content is really really important until you have a few great interviews under your belt where you can share those in your pitches then you need to shoot something else whether it's a youtube video whether it's a bestselling book up performance onstage. Give something to. The decision is easy. It's an easy s now. Our which is one of the ways you can do. This is one of the strategies. I used in the beginning where i literally would go to the pages of all the podcasts. I wanted to go on. I emailed them and Ask them to be on. And i gave him some materials to kind of look through to know that. I'm legit but a more effective way is what's called a warm introduction. Introductions are one of the best ways to get on podcast and it's the fastest way to get a. yes now. there's a few things you can do. Let's start with one of the easiest step step number one is do you know anybody. That's been on amy podcasts. As a guest. Look at all your friends on facebook on social your emails. Is there anybody in your network. That's been on a podcast guest. That knows that can vouch for you if so ask that person. Hey can you introduce me to that. Podcast you're on. A warm introduction is an easy way for them to say. Hey that gas was good and the recommending somebody. There's a good chance that somebody is going to be worth my time. This is why. I really emphasize the importance of building. Your personal network making friends in your industry because you can always help each other out vouch for each other and remember. I talked about how a lot of just don't know who you are. The more you network the more. You're well known. There are so many people. I know that are so good at networking yet. They don't have a best selling book. They are not a social media phenomenon. But if i say their name people know they are because they are great at networking. They're great at making friends in their space and people like that will never starve because they can always find opportunities because they know somebody. So get a warm introductions one of the best ways to get on podcast. Next piece of advice is your aim. Should be trying to get on five. Podcasts doesn't matter the size of the audience or how newer old the podcasts. Is you wanna get some rips. You wanna really understand the process and you want to deliver. Will you wanna do in those first. Five is be the absolute guest that podcast has ever had. I'm talking about study. This podcast study everybody. Who's in your niche or have spoken about the topics that you might talk about in the interview or in the podcast episode and cover things that haven't been covered address issues. Problems challenges that other people haven't addressed on the podcast before you want to be the most guests they've ever had you want to be the jamie foxx episode. Okay why because this is how you're gonna viral market yourself if you knock it out of the park. And you're the best episode for each of these. Podcasts podcasters listen to other podcasts. And the here episode the blake. I gotta get this person on my show and that really worked for me. I work super hard on making sure. I nail my first interviews. That i crush it that i really deliver value. It's my only goal. I'm not trying to promote products and services if the host talks about my websites or my products. That's great. that's fine. But i don't even mention the asking. That question is are any way people can reach out to you. I give out my e mail or give out my twitter handle and try to get the conversation to continue on those mediums. The point here is that you just got to really nail. This not only will help you with the viral marketing of a. But it's a great set of interviews that you can use as samples of your work when you reach out to other podcast to be a guest on. My next tip is make a list. Make a list of all the podcasts. You want to be on. And it's okay if you shoot for the stars and he may even wanna work to that list so like number. One is joe rogan number two. Is tim ferriss. Show whatever just you know naming names here. But you have your favorite podcasts or the best podcasts you want to be on and work your way down. you know. it's okay if that list is one hundred. Two hundred three hundred podcasts. And see as you know a a bucket list you know. I wanna cross these off. And i want to get through all the podcasts as much as possible. And don't forget new. Podcasts are being launched all the time. so you're gonna want to update this list but the list is great to have so you can track your progress and is literally just a spreadsheet on google sheets. You know the podcast name. The podcast host The link to the podcast. And then i actually have a column or linked to my episode. Once i'm on it when you're starting out on another quick tip. I have to say this. But i've noticed some people don't do this but when you're starting out when you're trying to get on other podcasts. Dopey a prima donna. Okay don't be too precious. A lot of people. Don't want to fill out forms. They wanna do pre interviews. They don't wanna do the initial chant. Sometimes they think well this established business successful This is beneath me and this podcast is not popular anyway. Why should i do this. Well you should do it because if you wanna get on the show. That's what needs to be done. There's no room for pride here. You want to get on the podcast. Go through the format. It's good for you helps you prepare helps you do your best when it's time to actually be on the podcast and you're on the road of the actual episode. You gotta earn your stripes. You might be successful in your own area in your own business. But you're entering a new world podcasting and you're nobody here. I don't want to speak on your behalf but if you're a beginner you are still earning your stripes. You're still proving yourself as good guest as a gray guesses a valuable guests so run through the steps in the is as needed. And sometimes you're going to have to do all these kinds of hoops and prepare and schedule months in advance before the episode of airs. The better podcasts. Actually you know. Have a pretty long lead time. Some of the bigger podcasts. I i've been on. They had four five six months of lead time. But as you know time flies so put in the work now so you can reap the benefits later.

Tula, the combo USB mic and audio recorder
"Systems. Likely the systems you use today. Learn more at avelar dot com slash talking. So what if. There was a usb mike that also let record at the same time. I think it sounds like a pretty good idea. So does david brown. He's got a new. My call the tula mike It's a two for one. It does double duty and he is talking to us from barcelona spain. David how you doing all right. Tell me why you invented this microphone. Well initially it was. Because of the explosion of content creators people making podcasts and having youtube channels and that type of thing. I wanted to create something that enabled those people to to get good audio easily Even if they are audio professionals and i thought it would be cool if it were a device that could record when you're away from your studio or away from your you know a bedroom studio or whatever. It is out in out in the field that can function as a mobile recorder as well. Okay right now. I could buy a lot of bikes plug directly into the iphone and have pretty good pretty good sound with them Intake the take that with me anywhere or have a usb mic on my desk. So to me after. I've just told you that you would say what well i would say. That the tula the a few things number one. The tula is is a kind of all in one solution. Instead of having one. Mike that plugs into your iphone in another fund that you have on your desk at home it covers all those bases and we like to think that it covers it better than than all of those put together and it looks really nice already. You should tell everybody about two to at a place in russia to our from moscow. What inspired you to To to to name it after this cook you know area of russia. And and and i believe you allow your engineers are in russia. Tell us about the russia connection well. The russia connections is kind of a hot topic. These days. I have a band called brazzaville and were oddly popular in russia. So i've toured extensively in russia for many years and Back in the ninety s in la. I bought a pair of octaves from Guitar center back when they were the first condenser mics. That were sort of affordable and i used him for years and one of the times. When i was on tour. I thank god. I wonder we're up toddlers located. So i looked it up. Sure enough. it's in. This town called tula which i had never heard of before in about a week later i was playing a gig in In cross nar this guy came up to me after the show. And he's like oh man. I'm a big fan. I wonder if you'd ever planned my hometown. Oh we're tula. And i said could you get me a you know a tour of the octave factory. He's like well. I'll try and he had to get special. Fsb permission and all of this military facility long story short. We got the idea to start at first. We were going to partner with taba to make like a kind of high end version of what they do. But in the end that was way too complicated and we ended up just founding our own microphone company which became soyuz. So let's back up a little bit. You're used to live in los angeles. Yes you live. You live in barcelona now okay. And you make microphones in russia to. How does that all get. How put that all together for me. I have a lot of airline miles. Well i grew up in la like right actually in la unlike most people who tell you they grew up in la grew up. Like basically in downtown wilshire and fairfax even more. like i. Like the koreatown. You know hoover in third and around there but i lived there for for most of my life and then about seventeen years ago. I just had this idea to move to barcelona just mostly because it just seemed like a good idea and It was a great idea as it turns out. I've never regretted it okay. So you're living barcelona and you fly on air flow aeroflot's to moscow Three times a week or three times a month or sadly not this year but last year. How often were you going all. I would go at least once a month. I would say and I know moscow really. Well i love russia immensely. It's beautiful country. With incredible people gets a really bad rap. I mean they're and bad people like anywhere but good luck with the tula. Mike which will be out in january one ninety nine.
New tensions emerge between Biden team and Trump administration
"Joe biden's incoming administration is taking shape. Former deputy secretary of state anthony blinken will be nominated for secretary of state x fed chair. Janet yellen is up to run treasury retired. General lloyd austin has been tapped to run the defense department. Some of these names have been more controversial than others. there've been some progressive objections to biden's likely pick a former iowa governor. Tom bill sack to reprise his role running. The agriculture department and a lot of republicans in the senate are cool to the choice of near attended a close hillary clinton confidante to run the office of management and budget. Some other choices like yellow. Have gotten pretty warm receptions across the political spectrum to talk about this administration that's what is likely to mean in terms of what a president joe biden might actually do. Let's bring in our left right and center panel on the right law. Chen is the david. Diane steffi fellow at the hoover institution and he's the director of domestic policy studies and lecturer in the public policy program at stanford lot. He has worked on several presidential campaigns for republicans including george w bush's reelection campaign marco. Rubio's two thousand sixteen run and he was the policy director for mitt romney in the two thousand twelve presidential campaign. Hello lonnie thanks for having me and on the left sabil. Rama joins us. Bill is president of demos a progressive organization that studies and advocates for voting rights economic and racial justice and equity sabil is also an associate professor at brooklyn law school. Bill so bill when you look at these names What does this tell you about. The sort of administration that joe biden is preparing to run. So i think the roster that's being built out is really interesting to me what it shows. Is there too big tensions that i think the new administration is trying to balance. A one is a balanced between old hands and some new faces and the other is a balanced between a pragmatic course and also progressive ones. So when you think about someone like janet yellen or cecilia rouse on the economic team These are folks who have deep experience in economic policy but also represent. I think a little bit more of a kind of a progressive wing of the larger policy debate. Not these are certainly not Bernie sanders elizabeth warren folks but they very much represent a part of the economic profession that is increasingly focused on issues of inequality Racial equity and issues of how we get around are sort of current problem of austerity politics. Lot he what do you make of this list of names. Well i think first of all there are a number of very highly qualified people on the list people who have great experience in government who i think even republicans who may have policy or ideological concerns would have to say are well qualified to play the roles. They've been a nominated by the president. Play and so. I think that that's a very hopeful. Sign on the other hand. You've got some real head. Scratchers here josh. There are people who the president is nominated for roles in various situations that i think people kinda wonder what was he. Thinking there Heavier sarah for example to be secretary of health and human services a man with no health policy no public health background who's really so claim to fame in healthcare is arguing to defend the affordable care act which by the way may have been enough for biden but it really seems to be one of those picks where he had put the sarah somewhere so he put him at. Hhs which under ordinary circumstances might be okay but in the middle of a pandemic hhs is going to play a critical role in disturbing the vaccine and hopefully overseeing and the the end of this covid nineteen pandemic here in the us. choice of. Sarah is puzzling one. The other one that i would point to which doesn't require senate confirmation and so Will be what it is. Is susan rice as director the domestic policy council which has traditionally been the policy making apparatus at the white house that coordinates the creation of domestic policy overseeing areas like education and health care immigration. Picking someone with with the deep foreign policy experience for that job seems to me to be a little bit odd. I think she was picked for that job. In part because it doesn't require senate confirmation and biden. His team knew there was no way republicans. Were going to confirm someone is controversial. Susan rice so for every sort of great. Pick for every janet. Yellen for every brian You know you have a few that sort of make you think. Gosh what is the biden team doing here. So it's a little bit of a mixed bag so far. Yeah bill when. I look at the list of names. I do sometimes see what he is describing their almost a sense that biden had list of people that he liked and wanted to give jobs to and a list of jobs he needed to fill and in some places. The matching of the to feels a little bit random. I'd also point to to marcia fudge who's an african american congresswoman from cleveland. She'd openly campaigned to be agriculture secretary. She's a senior member of the agriculture committee. There'd been a lot of progressive concerns about how the agriculture committee has dealt with black farmers and about beneficiaries of nutrition programs people primarily eat food rather than making it And biden has passed over. Her is expected to bill sack in that position and then fudge specifically said that she didn't want one of these traditionally black cabinet jobs like labor or housing and urban development. She's going to be put up to run housing and urban development. So some of these choices they do have that feeling to me of what we want this person job. Well here. this one's available. Let's give them out. One is that is that. Is that too harsh. Look looking at this selection process and saying that you know i. I do think there's a little bit of that. In terms of the example with congressman fudge gave. I think is a is a good one of your. She has deep expertise actually on areas connected to usda. I'm at the same time. I think she'll bring a novel. Interesting and important voice went on the issues of hud but there is a little bit of that. I think the thing i would offer is you know. There's so much going. On with this transition. Given the pandemic given the extraordinary delays that the trump administration put in place at one things that we're really looking at is what's what does that next layer down. Look like so when you think about the whole team Not just cabinet but cap a deputy secretaries and so on can does it look like a team that then has the balance of deep expertise and Mission alignment right at someone. Folks who are laser focused on the combined crises of of the economy and covid and climate and original justice moment. That's the next layer. That i would look at right. Are folks getting complimentary. Picks to offset some of where they might need additional insight or expertise
Russia is likely to launch the disinformation version of nukes
"You have heard. We learned this week that hackers have been spying on the us departments of state homeland security. Commerce treasury may be the nuclear security administration. Bad bad stuff. The intrusion began in the spring. And the hackers are thought to be working for the russian government and the ongoing news about this hack has me and others worried about all kinds of things from a physical attack on critical infrastructure to data manipulation to more election shenanigans. So i wondered. What should i be worried about. It's a topic for quality assurance where we take a second. Look at a big story in the news. Jackie schneider is a fellow at the hoover institution at stanford. The bad news is that the russians have a history of using this kind of information to try manipulate trust and so i think that's something that we should worry about especially as we. Are you know a little over a month out. From a big transition. Between the trump administration and the biden administration and that the russians will use information that they have achieved in these tax or even use the fear of the information that they've received in these hacks to create even more public distrust of that and transaction between the two administrations. So what might that look like this degradation of trust or even a campaign to further erode americans confidence and institutions. I think we're already starting to see it right. There is already starting to be linkages between and hack and the dominion electoral voting. And you're starting to see them then. Line these things up to show that there is some sort of discredit in the way the. Us conducted its election systems. Not there might be some sort of foreign influence inside them so we can imagine that we can also imagine it. Seems like this hack may have downloaded potentially sensitive or at least private emails between key government officials and we can imagine the russians have used this in the past to leak information to make government look bad to create distrust between different sectors of the government. I mean this could be particularly dangerous as we look at the transition in the department of defense. Because we've had a lot of problems with civilian military politicization reveal maybe private emails and that maybe represent a different kind of private feeling than what they're publicly saying you could create fractures that could continue to create distrust in the american public right. I mean so really. All of this is sort of a continuation of an ongoing effort. That was probably most prominent in two thousand sixteen right like take existing divisions amplify them create more and weaken the nation in the process. Yeah that's always been something that russia has fallen back on. They are conventionally much less capable than the united states economically much less capable. I'm even their nuclear inventories. Not as robust so the only thing they really have to influence against the united states is to try and seed chaos and so we can imagine them doing a whole lot more at that especially because they might be worried that a biden administration would have a much harder line against russia than they've seen out of the trump administration right so the idea being weakened that administration in every possible way before it even comes into office. Exactly i mean. I think we're going to see the cleavage. Is that have occurred in american society over the last four years. But really that we've seen solidify over this last year and during the pandemic we're going to see the russians playing on that even more and this information can be used in in really creative ways to try and exacerbate those cleavages
First Flight With Mike Manseca
"Tell us about how you started. First flight dot org because this is really obviously. You've you've been to kitty hawk. Many times Tell us what your first time going there. Well my first time was. I couldn't even tell you how old it was as a kid and it actually was with my dad the outer banks always ended up being a place we would go for vacations. I like for instance when i graduated from high school. Joe double hills is where we went for our Graduation party week. Whatever you wanna call it But i've been there before and my family. And i now go actually. I live in richmond. Virginia right now uh-huh even though i'm the head of an organization is down in kitty hawk north carolina but For probably about the last twenty years. We've gone every august for for summer vacation. 'cause we discovered as vacation place all those years ago and we just love. It can't think of a better place to go on vacation so we still do it now when you were a kid and you went there did the significance of the location of the you realize the significance of the location or was it just a a neat place to go for vacation. No no i completely did and much chagrin the rest of my family. They didn't look at me. Like how many times can you go to the same place you know what changes nothing changes. But i. i don't care. It's like a pilgrimage to go to the wright brothers national memorial to go to the park to see where that first powered flight happened and i'm a fanatic about it since i was a kid and when two thousand and three came around and i knew it was going to be one hundredth anniversary of flight trying to figure out. How am i going to get. I'm gonna get down there. Because i had a job. It's in december and then as it turns out my wife said. Hey i put for your birthday put together a trip for you and your dad to go down and spend a couple of days at kitty hawk and be there on the seventeenth and she'd actually only set up for a couple of days and my dad said well. This is wonderful but if we're going to go we might as well go for the whole time. And i think it was a five day celebration so worked it all out. I begged my boss to please have a couple of extra days off and We were there for all the days of celebration. And i have to tell you there was nothing never been anything like it. I don't know if i don't know if you've ever been to any of the celebrations but that one and of course was worldwide as far as the publicity for it but i can't remember how many people they said were there but the thing about it is i saw every kind of playing you can think of especially military plane fly over during those days. 'cause there was an air show every day and let's see also saw a lot of famous aviation people so the great thing was being able to see. Neil armstrong john glenn bob who hoover patty wag staff any number of people who were being honored that week And then on the actual seventeenth john travolta introduce president george w bush and he made a speech on the seventeenth of course out of all those days. Which day was the ugly rainy day. Yes it was the seventeenth. It was cold. It was rainy The attempt to do the flight at ten thirty five did not go off like it was supposed to. But i was so glad that i was there so now. I'm just curious. And i don't know the answer to this question. The wright brothers choose that location because they were building the airplane in dayton. Is that correct. That is correct. Actually wilbur wrote to the national weather service. And said hey. We're looking for replace. That has a lot of wind and his isolated and they could do their experiments in in private. Kitty hawk was a bonus because all the sand dunes. Which makes it a lot easier if you have an accident while you're trying to fly instead of trying to land on hard ground Which is essentially what they had in ohio flat hard ground right so they had gotten a number of different places they could try and they went ahead and wrote to the postmaster down in kittyhawk in he basically said hey. If you come down here. We'll do everything we can to help you find a pleasant group of people and we look forward to it so they basically took them up on that offer. So now when did you. Did you start the first flight organization. No no no under current president but the first flight organization or now you got me saying it's the first flight society actually started in nineteen twenty seven as the kill devil hills memorial creation. I hope i said that right. It's changed names a few times but yes Nine thousand twenty seven kill devil hills memorial association basically what it was was a group of about forty six businessmen put together by a newspaper publisher named W sunders who said hey. Let's let's this an important place. Let's get a memorial built. You know and this is something that would be seeing nationwide and would also you know side benefit is would be reason for people to come and visit each daughter bax back. At that time there was no bridge over to the outer banks from the mainland. You had to take a boat a really. Oh yeah you know. And that was the same. As in the time of the wright brothers. They had to take boats with crates of all their parts for their their planes and it was quite the trip and and even the first when they were building the memorial and people were coming down and they were dedicating. It was a heck of a trip train rides boat rides. You know wasn't like let's just get on a plane. Fly there because even at that time it was pretty it was just. There wasn't a lot of people just going to go up and
Biden, Harris are Time's 2020 'Person of the Year'
"Go from here. That's the colossal question. Before president-elect joe biden who was named times person of the year along with vice president elect kamala harris. He's not the first person of the year to be tasked with the future of america. Almost every u s president since the franchise began in nineteen twenty. Eight has been named person of the year at least once excluding calvin coolidge. Herbert hoover and gerald ford but biden is likely the first in a generation to inherit such a crescendo of course trophies. A worsening pandemic that's brought a staggering loss of life widespread unemployment and an economic crisis a global climate crisis a reckoning over the continued pervasiveness of systemic racism and growing misinformation blurring fact and fiction during an interview with time editor in chief and ceo. Edward felsen thal at queens theatre in wilmington delaware. The president-elect discussed his partnership with harris the coming covid nineteen vaccine rollout. His thoughts on pardons and more here are excerpts. From biden's interview edited for clarity on restoring america's middle class if my plan is able to be implemented whole plan. I think it's going to go down as one of the most progressive administrations in american history. We've lost the idea that when ordinary people do well. Everybody does better. It's important that we focus on the things that provide opportunity pardoning donald trump. my justice department will make decisions based on the facts there. The people's lawyers. They're not my lawyers. I'm never going to pick up the phone. And say pardon so. And so or go out and prosecute so. And so. But i lived through gerald ford's pardoning of richard nixon. I think that the law and the circumstance should take its effect. I'm not suggesting. Trumpy prosecuted. Or not. But i would not be engaged in that prematurely. How the pandemic has changed him and us. What's been reinforced is my absolute commitment. That everyone is entitled to health care. It's not about whether or not it's a privilege it's a right. We're the only country in the world that has come out of every crisis stronger than we went into the crisis. I predict we will come out of this crisis stronger than when we went in finding vaccine. Hesitancy the words of a president matter. Whether they're good. Presidents are bad. They matter i joined the three presidents who said they would be publicly vaccinated because i think people will realize that we have to reinstate confidence that science is real if someone with the reputation of anthony fauci and the leading scientists of the country said this vaccine works they should take choosing kamala harris. She is straight as an arrow. She is really really bright. She is tough but yet she has a heart. That understands what it's like to be on the other side of prejudice. She also was an immigrant's daughter who was raised in a strange way like i was. We were taught that we could be anything. Don't give up just move. Keep pushing. And i just found her to be someone who. If in fact something happened to me i knew they could take over. That's kamla
Laurie Garrett on COVID-19 in the USA
"Joining us now. Is laurie garrett. She is a health policy analyst and pulitzer prize winning science writer. Who has been a real voice of reason for us over the course of this crisis laurie. It's really nice to see you. Thank you for being here so you and a lot of other public health experts. They called this back in the summer when the white house decided they were going to take away from. Cdc and have the trump administration. Have hhs collect this data in instead. It really does seem to have been born out in the months since how big a problem is this. How much better off would we be. If we had real data we could count on well. First of all rich we really all agreed to of gratitude to charles pillar who has doggedly covered this story for science magazine for the last three months performed brilliantly and one of them really important things that he has surrey. Thank all of a sudden you are coming on my television for which i apologize talks. And he and he and one of the things that he revealed was that deborah burks was really behind this. She wanted more control of the data she didn't trust. Cdc and claim that the data was sloppy by moving it into hhs they actually then barbed out to private companies. One was a private firm called telegraphing. Biggest client they never had and the other was pailin tier which of course not much later went public on the stock market tear was engaged to sort of massage and analyze the data on the result was of course at the hospitals. Were thoroughly confused. Who are we supposed to send data. To what form are we supposed to fill out. How do we do this. What computers are we supposed to us and for a long time in the summer right after this all started we really had almost no data related to rely upon at all Eventually the federal government started really pushing hospitals around. And said you're gonna lose your medicare contracts. We're gonna take your medicaid and medicare patients and throw them at another hospital if you don't start reporting data to us. Whoa alright swallow hospital start flooding data in. But what's the reliability of the relevance of it. What does it really mean. now. Here's where the the crux of the problem is if your job is to decide how much. Ppe needs to go to arkansas. Or how how much dexsa. Methadone needs to go to south dakota if your job is managing the national stockpile and determining whether or not reading to crisis level of shortages of protective gear for nurses for example. You need to know what's the hospitalization rate. What are the trends. look like. What's the use rate. Well you don't have any such data to rely on right now. It's just a total mess. There's no It's a mess at all levels if the federal numbers don't jive with the state numbers the state the numbers don't jive with the county numbers. The private hospital sector is reporting a different way than the public hospital sector. I mean this is just chaos lawrence this problem or how fixable is. This is a problem. I know that it was a relief to a lot of people to see the list of names who have been advising the incoming president on cova thus far and we've heard sort of reassuring and science based public statements from them during the transition thus far but when they dig in and start to do this work is this a. Is this something that can be is. Is this something that can be undone. Will they have to build this from the ground up. The cdc essentially be put back in charge of this in a way that will just sort of quickly rationalize the state and make it useful again. Will rachel raw. Really anxious to see who biden is going to name as the next. Cdc director and also the next hhs director net will go a long way to helping to answer your question. What we don't really know because the transition team is only just had a few days of access to get inside the cdc. We don't really know what the state of these kinds of programs is now inside in other words. Is it all still in their computers. Are there still personnel. There could reactivate the cdc's tracking system or was it utterly dismantled. And we don't really know the answer to that question right now laura after. Get your reaction to the news tonight. Dr scott atlas has resigned from the white house. I personally was not shy about talking about the fact that i was alarmed to see him in the position that he was in the white house given his stated public views on the virus. What's your reaction to the fact that he's now resigned. It's great. I think that he had a very negative impact on affairs inside the white house. And on our national response and i'm not sure he's going to be welcome back at stanford the stanford faculty have voted to denounce him condoleeza rice his faucet. The hoover institute is indicated some dissatisfaction with his performance. The what's interesting to me is the timing. why now. why did he put out a statement today. Dated for tomorrow and i just wonder if it's in any way connected to the fact that andrews nel who was really the architect of this whole herd immunity approach for sweden Was pushed aside this weekend in sweden. As that country's death toll and case numbers have soared. And there's a strong belief in many sectors of the swedish government that listening to end. Anders was a mistake and also conversely that boris johnson finally rejected of the sort of heard immunity approach that many of his advisor to add been advocating and about three weeks ago started tough lockdowns and since they've been on three weeks of lockdown.

Donald Trump's disregard for our transition rituals threatens democracy
"Have you noticed. This is not normal. The president openly trying to say only the votes for him should count talking about sailing election. No legal path to succeed. We've been reporting on how those michigan republicans were welcomed at the white house after being shamed in their own home state for what they were doing. And donald trump is also taking petty moves that basically delay or mess with aspects of the transition. They won't mess with the transfer of power. All of this. We want to show tonight with. The evidence is a radical break from a longstanding. Bipartisan approach to the peaceful transfer of power in america that look forward to talking to the president so honored that he was attended with hospitality to me. And my wife. Yesterday didn't need to do this. And i am most grateful that He would do so good morning last night. I had a warm conversation with president. Elect barack obama. I congratulated him and senator biden on their impressive. Victory told the president-elect he can count on complete cooperation for my administration as he makes the transition to the white house. My number one priority. In the coming two months is to try to facilitate a transition that ensures dental is successful. We turned presidential historian. Michael beschloss what contrast you see from there to now well once again are a donald trump tonight as a category of his own. Go all the way back to john adams who lost to the guy who was at that time as you know his political enemy. Thomas jefferson. Adams was angry about being defeated by jefferson. And he didn't hang around for the inauguration that tradition adopted established yet so adams got an a stage coach and went back to massachusetts before jefferson was born in but it began this tradition. That even when you have an incumbent president who is angry at the guy who beat him for reelection. Herbert hoover in one thousand nine hundred ninety three and franklin roosevelt over to the white house to talk about how they should transfer power even when they rolled up to the capital roosevelt and hoover sat in the back of an open car. They shared a lap robe. If you could believe it didn't talk much. But that's a tradition. And as you say the tradition is running alongside both the rules constitutional requirements and the norms that much abuse a framework or term in the last four years That provide a buffer a provide a context all this. We just showed the outgoing president's michael stays with us. We want to show michael. And our viewers the other cases where we have seen the candidates as mentioned who lost just conceding with some eye on their place in history john mccain making what for him was a painful concession to barack obama in two thousand and eight hillary clinton in that loss that shocked so many including many in the republican party. She got up the next morning and gave that speech pledging cooperation to president-elect trump and sixteen we've seen presidents who lost reelection like trump did face the music the people of the united states that made the choice and of course. I accept that decision. But i have to admit not with the same enthusiasm that i accepted the decision for years ago. People have spoken. And we respect the majesty of the democratic system. I just called governor clinton over in little rock and offered my congratulations. he did run a strong campaign. I wish him well in the white house. You know michael you deal with facts and evidence you have a rigorous process between where you start and publishing one of your history books. How do you measure class. Because what i see there is something. That's hard to prove. But i feel it inside which is across ideology in parties. We've just seen many different presidents showing a type of class or even grace that is absent right now at the white house. We're going to ari. I've got two sons who are now in their twenties but they used to play a little league and every time they played a game even if they lost they would shake hands with the winning team and say good game. That was assumed this. That's that's american. What is not. American is to claim when you didn't win to be a poor loser you try to be out of keeping with the tradition of all those guys you just showed even richard nixon who is not thought of in history as a particularly gracious winner. Nineteen sixty gets beaten by john kennedy. He was very angry about it and it was very sad about it but he goes out and tells us supporters in los angeles in america. Once a decision is made we unite behind the candidate who was elected that was even before the final results were. Yeah that's great a great example. You're given off as we say off the top of the dome michael We have one more for you. And that is al gore. Who did have this tight legal challenge. Everyone remembers frustrating. For both sides in the run up to it and then of course frustrating for the person losing so narrowly having won more votes overall total across america. Al gore take a look now the. Us supreme court has spoken. Let there be no doubt while. I strongly disagree with the court's decision. I accept it. I accept the finality of this outcome. Which will be ratified next monday. In the electoral college and tonight for the sake of our unity as a people and strength of our democracy. I offer my concession. If i may be a little optimistic here at the end of the week michael ask you to guide us. What would you as someone who cares deeply about america. What would you tell citizens both parties neither party whatever. What is incumbent upon the rest of us to do if we never get that concession from this president. What do we do from here together. We just say the. Donald trump is a gross aberration. Get him out out the door. The door doesn't hit him on the way out on the twentieth of january and say we demand our leaders that they do. What all those other candidates that you show tonight did show some graciousness and understand that democracy is more important. Listen to what al gore said. He didn't say. I agree with the supreme court decision in bush v gore. He says for the sake of our democracy. I offer my concession. Most canada's most presidents love democracy want to unite the country. Donald trump is a gross aberration and exception to that tradition. Soon he'll be gone. Michael beschloss gets the word on that. Thank you sir.

"The goal of co Intel pro was not as narrowly constrained as Hoover suggested to the national Security Council in nineteen fifty six the council and President Eisenhower understood who was planned in the context of disrupting violent communists, who are bent on harming American citizens, but Hoover implemented, a broad campaign of infiltration and harassment against the entire American political left co Intel pro targets did include the communist party and other clearly subversive organizations. Other targets though, included groups, legally advocating. For change in society. Not for the overthrow of government groups, like the civil rights movement, the anti Vietnam war movement, and the so called new left a social movement that included civil rights, but also feminism gay rights abortion rights and drug policy reforms co Intel pro agents joined activist groups informed on members foment dissent and even organize illegal acts to discredit the movements. No one in. These groups was safe from scrutiny and the more high profile, the activist the more Hoover's FBI paid attention and in this period. No one was more high profile than Martin Luther King junior. This is episode five black bag job.

But the truth was the communist movement in America had faded significantly by the late fifties.

More likely to be struck by lightning than to bump into a communist party member. Yet Hoover argued that communists, had merely gone into hiding inside other political activists movements and even inside the news media in nineteen fifty eight Hoover published a book on communism called masters of deceit. A New York Times review of the book accused Hoover of overstating the communist threat, the reviewer John B oaks noted that there were more than one hundred fifty million anti communists in the US day with the help of the FBI could probably handle the handful of communists in the country. He continued it is quite possible that the high crime rate, juvenile delinquency, bad, health and housing conditions and infringement or denial of civil rights may be more of an internal menace to our institutions and our security than a communist party of the United States Hoover mobilized, his public relations machine to respond to the review a crime record section agent wrote a letter to conservative columnist, George secorski saying this review, of course.

"After the Dillinger shooting who were set out to create a new picture of the FBI one that centered on his achievements. He did this by building a public relations office inside the bureau. It was called the crime record section. The agents who worked there had English or journalism degrees. Some of them had worked for newspapers others distinguish themselves as good writers editors in their other work for the FBI to lead them. Hoover chose his closest aide associate director, CLYDE Tolson and former YMCA publicist Lew Nichols public relations was in its infancy in the mid nineteen thirties New York theatre promoter Edward burn as considered the father of public relations. I calling the term only a decade earlier and government public relations was essentially non existent after Yar had only just begun his famous fireside chats, but Nichols was public relations pioneer, the former YMCA publicity agent was an unlikely Hoover confidante. Who were dressed eilly and meticulously his desk was carefully arranged any valued order and organization Nichols. On the other hand was the human equivalent of an unmade bed. His desk was a mess with ashtrays and cigarette butts buried under piles of disorder paperwork memoranda from Hoover often sat unread for days cardinal sin in the FBI. He was also portly and more ill-fitting suits the physical opposite of the athletic agents. Hoover favored but Nichols had a superpower networking. He could talk to anyone anywhere at anytime. He ate launch with a different group of reporters every day. He was rarely seen without a phone perch on his shoulder either praising or berating reporter editor publisher he could captivate reporters with spellbinding tales, essentially writing their stories for them. He could also dismantle reporters work in granular detail delivered in between vile profanity gregarious man with total devotion to Hoover Nichols. Learn to use his power as. The FBI's communications chief to control what the public heard and saw about the agency he opened up the bureau to reporters producers editors so long as they were willing to accept some conditions. The bureau would have total control over the resulting stories including the right to edit them prior to publication or broadcast any hint of criticism of Hoover or the FBI would result in placement on a do not contact list Nichols, essentially turned reporters into stenographers who ceded control of news columns and broadcast airtime to the government refuse to agree to the FBI's conditions and reporters were simply frozen out accepting these kind of conditions would be violation of the fundamental ethics of journalism.

"Thank you CARA. We are back with Ryan Hoover from product hunt. We were talking about making money that is something that you add product hunt or trying to do this. You're how're you doing? What's the money strategy? Yeah. So in the the first six months of attempting to make money, we cover Hafer our burn on the team. So we, we got off to a good start, and we're focusing large. On giving people what they've been asking to pay for. It's kind of a funny, funny notion for years. People have saying, hey, we love to promote our product on product. We, you know, we launched last month. We got a bunch of feedback users. How do we get featured on the site again in? So instead of this is something that you have to be very careful with with the community is how you monetize, especially if it's something new. And so instead of allowing anyone to promote anything on the front page, we actually reached back out to makers posted in the past that were featured in the past and had some number of votes, which you know illustrated that there was some popularity for the product and allow them to refigure their product. And so it's been a nice way to natively, kind of resurface really cool products and also make money in turn. And we've also have our own job board and a couple of other things that are advertising based to diversify forever streams. Yeah. Is it mostly advertising because eat both, you know, pain to promote a job or pain to promote my business either way. That's bad. Yeah. Yeah. It's actually the two. There's kind of two. Prong strategy. One is advertising base which is promoted products and promoted jobs. And then we also have a platform called ship, which is a basically a SAS based tool to help makers launch and communicate with their users as they're building their product. So is that like an API of some kind that people plug into or what? Yeah, it's the realization after seeing, I don't know, hundred thousand plus products launch on product hunt in ourselves, seeing how we use different tools. Basically, what we're building is a simple landing page creator to collect emails from your users and then Email message those people. And today a lot of people are doing that already by building their own landing page, signing up for mail, chimp using type form to send you know surveys to their audience to better understand them. Then they have to integrate merge much ceus fees and use all these different tools. Instead, we're building a tool that includes all of those things in one. So it's all connected and easier to to communicate with your users them up to the more I'm here and setting the you said ship, right? Yeah, not to be. Sip, which are I think they more I'm hearing about it. You know, advertising the the news breakouts the podcast, the newsletter like you really do sound media like a media company. I am curious what you think about subscriptions because you seem like a prime that seems like a prime business opportunities for you would be to say, hey investor, you wanna get the first look at, you know what the hot apple is, or, you know, sign up for our premium account or something. Have you considered that? Yeah, we so ship is from base, but it's designed for startups or shirt site project. So not necessarily what you're describing, you know, we thought about, you know, protect pro type of membership. And the realization is if if you do the math, it just doesn't come out to big business. You really need a large portion of your audience to pay for that, and we feel that we can make money in other ways more effectively. So that doesn't mean we won't experiment with some of that in the future, but to to collect five dollars a month from, you know, in a lot of people paying five dollars a month to make much money.

It's a great way for other entrepreneurs or even investors to discover kind stuff's out there that they didn't know you guys. I, I was looking around spent the last couple of days kind of turn around the side and like it's more of a media site than I would have thought you do have a kind of a breaking news section or maybe not breaking, but you have a news section. You talk about kind of community forums. You just mentioned to me before we got on here. You're gonna get your podcast up and going. Do you think of yourselves as a media company? Yeah, it's been a question that's come up since the beginning of product on. I think everyone likes to think they're a special snowflake, but in some ways products and is. Sort of a Frankenstein in many different things. It's certainly part media. It's definitely community that's the foundation of really product in general. And in some ways, it's also a platform. So there's a lot of dynamics that are a play and at the core of it, though I describe it as a community because that actually gives us opportunities to expand and build upon other things like the the breaking news and news content that we're experimenting with right now, Russia launching something in a couple of days. Probably the time. This podcast is out that incorporates more community aspects into the first version was more. Let's create the content. Second version is, let's enable the community to participate more in this type of content. Yeah, let's talk about that a little bit because that's what you know. We do right. We write stories and produce podcasts and things, and it's not always easy if you go to product tante the, I'm I'll describe it to those folks who haven't seen it along the right handrail. There's kind of like news headlines for. The tech industry who was writing those. How do you decide like are you now? Do you consider yourself an editor of some kind? Do you have an editor on staff like where does that come from? Yeah, yeah. So we're, this was an experiment that started earlier in the year. We call it sip and it's intended to be separate brand, and it started off as a mobile app that's actually similar to, let's say, Twitter moments or Snapchat stories inform. And so you tap and you'd see different snippets of summaries, basically of the tech news and tweets and quotes from whether it's Recode or other publications. And so we're, we're not necessarily. We are writing to some extent some of that content. We're certainly curing what content is appearing, but it's all about curation and servicing opinions, and sometimes gifts and funny things. We want to really be aligned with our brand which is intended to be kit initially playful. And so a lot of what we're doing is certainly some editorial aspects but is more about curation..
