Evan Kuo: AMPL - the Controversial Digital Currency With an Elastic Supply

"I began our journey there. But just to set the context like to introduce to your audience. Audience. What ampoules are? So the foundation is called ampleforth foundation and we have a protocol called ampleforth protocol, but the ample amp pl is actually a token. It is a non collateralized cryptocurrency like bitcoin with an important twist, its supply elastic, and what this means is on a daily basis. The token in protocol will automatically increase or decrease the quantity of tokens held in user wallets based on twenty four hour weighted volume price. Let's the mission of influence. So what was the thing that drove you to start this? What needs? Did you see it flipping? So the mission of ampleforth this to become an essential building block of an alternative financial ecosystem, and really I think what's interesting is how we came to this realization that we've been needed a building block or how we even decided that that would be an interesting thing to produce and just kind of going back to the beginning of the journey with me and brandon like I said were thinking very deeply about why bitcoin was designed the way it was because it was so obviously difficult to scale and. Two things, kind of emerged from that thought process number one, it was designed to counteract a sovereign monopoly and that was very different than our minds from say a free market monopoly. So say, for example, you're not happy with how Google or facebook function you, and I are free to go and create a search engine to our liking or a social network to our liking and compete on the open market. Now, they have a lot of advantages being incumbent, but nobody would tell us You cannot compete with Google, you cannot innovate upon facebook we're free to try. But. In the case of money, it's not the case, right? So historically, people have tried to create their own currencies like even liberty dollar meeting their own coins started used them in circulation in been stopped by the government, and that's the difference between a sovereign monopoly, and if market monopoly and one thing that struck us is that the bitcoin protocol great lengths to counteract the sovereign monopoly in being censorship persistent. Made huge concessions along the way. For this reason we think that if if the service that you're producing doesn't really require that level of censorship resistance, you might be handicapping yourself a great deal in attempting to say create a better search engine on a smart contract programming platform because of scale and usability limitations, and so on and so forth. How would you say the bitcoin protocol has restricted itself and basically you said earlier that you think it's not scalable. What's behind? That can go a little bit into technical detail. What exact you thing is not scalable. I think as a layer one blockchain. It has a limited in TPS right and as the ledger gets bigger and bigger, you run into all sorts of congestion issues and you let's say comparing to something like visa, it can't hear handle nearly as many transactions per second, and again, this is thinking back to our interpretation of the original paper title, appeared appeared digital cash, and of course, our naive understanding of money at the time was that caches that which I use. Use to purchase coffee. There's something different about how bitcoin is designed rate, but I also want to just move forward to the next point of realization that we came to, which is really important and the bitcoin protocol succeeded in articulating scarcity in a purely digital context, right. So unlike golden natural commodities, which naturally scarce by the physical limitations of the world, the bitcoin protocol was able to define scarcely using just an algorithm and that's very unique in the digital world like. Many things are scarce, digital world somebody takes a photo, it gets replicated. You can't really undo that you can't say that this is the only instance of that digital photo. So that was a really big idea and the takeaway for me. Brandon was that the the most salient opportunity to apply this sort of technology is money, and then what happened was we began to wonder about what was wrong with money rates. We saw that bitcoin has succeeded in creating a censorship resistant fix apply acid that's analogous to a digital gold. But what was even wrong with gold? Is there anything wrong? Wrong with gold and you know we really recruited a very helpful and we're super grateful for this team of investors. In advisors.

Dunkirk Awards

"Welcome to film spotting, we will get to our Nolan Review Awards. Later in the show, we might have an for those awards picked out by. Then we might not. We will share our awards for favourite supporting performance and lead performance from this retrospective of the work of Christopher Nolan will also share our picks for best Nolan moment in the overall best moment or seen after we have revisited all ten of Nolan's films and that will culminate with our Christopher Nolan rankings. The definitive Christopher ranking for each of us one to ten will there be some shifting Adam Gimme a tease. Shifts definitely from the last time, I posted a Nolan ranking on letterbox. There's been some movement Yep me too one I think you'll like I don't know if you'll like it enough, but you will like it I though the World War Two movie from Christopher Nolan that we didn't know we needed dunkirk. The enemy tanks stop. Why? Why waste precious tanks when they can pick from the. Barrel. Their full hundred thousand men only speech. Your position. Josh, coming into this rewatch was that done kirk is Christopher, Nolan's best film and there's at least one longtime listener and regular commentator who agrees with you that we are culminating this overview triumphantly with the filmmakers greatest achievement Adam Grossman in Vancouver says like many of us. I've completed my Christopher Nolan Review. Biggest takeaway hoover is a really hard were dispel. Well, second takeaway. I've decided dunkirk is Nolan's career highpoint while my heart loves interstellar the most good on you Adam and I. Hugely Admire. and. The Dark Knight for what they meant to Action Cinema and Superhero movies respectively dunkirk is his masterpiece got laid down for you tenant. I just don't know how anyone could argue that the legend of dunkirk could be told any better the setup and the first eight minutes alone from the falling paper from the sky to the distress. Cry of where's the bloody air force is a wonder of a short film. In itself, the lack of dialogue works perfectly for what this movie wants to achieve with. Hans. Zimmer's relentless scored doing all the audio work that's necessary among all the chaos. There are frequent moments of grace. Kenneth. Branagh face as Commander Bolton as the cavalry arrives in the form of the civilian vessels the empathy as Peter Tells Killian Murphy's PTSD soldier. The young George will be okay and no moment more than the shot. Be Okay and no more than a shot of Tom Hardy's planes silently gliding over the beaches of dunkirk knowing his job has been done. dunkirk is also uniquely Christopher Nolan Movie One where his signature use of time has never melded together better and more cohesively than it does in the final twenty minutes of this film while Dunkirk will understandably never be a wholly enjoyable or easy rewatch. It's one that gets richer and richer with repeat viewing. Now, Adam Mention Nolan signature use of time, and that is one aspect of dunkirk among others that certainly connects to his entire body of work. But there are other aspects that Mark Dunkirk is unique. It is only film that is based on historical events, which means it is inherently rooted in the past and yet I'd argue it is only film that truly feels present tense meeting there are no. Dead parents or wives or forsaken children or other tragic events haunting the air's barrier played by Tom. Hardy the Moles Army private Tommy fiene whitehead or for the most part the sees Mr Dawson played by Mark Rylance like all Nolan protagonist there's plenty of personal sacrifices on display but no guilt no sense of futility about toning past actions just the seemingly futile need to survive the current event that they. Are Tragically experiencing here's something else that argues unique about dunkirk as we every other commentator on Dolan's work is discussed in some form or fashion for all those dead parents and wives and foresaken children. There's nothing so emotional or borderline sentimental in any of his previous films as the climax of inception and yes, mileage may vary there which led to interstellar and not only mcconaghy's crushing breakdown watching twenty three. Years Worth of miss video messages from his family but the verbalize message love is the one thing we're capable of proceeding that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that even if we can't understand it, it's hard to imagine any character in previous Christopher Nolan movies saying something like that which led to Dunkirk am I crazy josh this is his most blatantly sentimental and even heart film. And if so is that what establishes Dunkirk as his best its balance of coldness the sober portrayal of the hell of war of life in the misguided choices, some men will make when facing death with warmth. In the compassionate inspiring choices some men will make to maintain a way of life. So a lot of subtleties in that question and you're onto something so you're not crazy I think I would distinguish. The word blatantly, I. Don't think this is blatantly emotional or moving, but I do think you're onto something in the fact that it is maybe his most heartwarming in where it ends up and let me kind of try to parse those. You're right as long as the Nolan Canon has convulsing McConnell. Interstellar is going to be his most blatantly emotional I mean you can't have a scene like that without registering that on it surface. That's his most emotional movie. But I will also say that I find Dunkirk to be his most emotionally affecting movie maybe even more. So than inception, which we about how I did find that very moving especially in the character of Mal. So yet dunkirk is really a unique thing even as it's working within the strands and trends that we have been tracing in Nolan's other films, I. Think the heartwarming aspect is probably a part of that. You've nailed it there in that it brings us to a place that. Is One of Constellation and I think it's earned because I think up until that point we have just been suffering alongside all of these other characters in so many ways and we've also been recognizing as the movie does that this is You know a an account of a military failure, a huge defeat and so for the movie to kind of offer, some sort of solace at the end of that I think is. In proportion and well

I, mean you guys are pioneers and what you've been doing for quite some time at this point. But I think events will do better. certain live events will do better in other events.

Trump Uses Mount Rushmore Speech to Deliver Divisive Culture War Message

"President. Trump spoke to a crowd of supporters in an Independence Day rally at Mount Rushmore last night, where he took the opportunity to denounce the ongoing racial justice movement. And as the Washington Post reports, Republicans are now fearing that his actions could jeopardize not only his reelection but also the future of a GOP majority in Congress. Joining us with Mohr on the KCBS Ring Central News line. Jack Pitney, professor of American politics at Claremont McKenna College, Professor Penny, Thank you for joining us. We appreciate your time. Thank you. And first of all, why don't we maybe should touch on one or two of the things that The president said last night that is kind of raising an eyebrow. Yeah. The entire speech was designed not to unify but to divide, uh, talking about the radical left trying to tear down statues. Ironically, he talked a lot more about statues than about the danger facing really people. That is the Corona virus, and ah, what was also controversial about the event yesterday. Is that there was no social distancing. Nobody was masked and as a result of that, it's very likely. A lot of the people in that crowd are going to be at risk for contracting Kobe. I know people think that the president has reacted very slowly on the Corona virus pandemic itself and the fact that he doesn't wear a mask. As you pointed out, it's telling people is delivering a message. Ah, that's right. And ah, it's a message that he doesn't particularly value reduction of risk here. That's a very dangerous message for a president to be sending. Instead, he's concentrating on these, uh, culture, war issues, really trying to distract attention from the main issue facing the country, which is this terrible pandemic, his ratings in the polls air dropping as we touched upon it and are leading Some of the Republicans now are starting to get a little worried that he is Doing more damage to the party. Then he is helping them. There's no question about that. People judge a president on results and the results as of the middle of 2020 are just downright terrible. Uh, not only the pandemic, but the economy has suffered severe damage. Uh, the standing of the United States globally is very poor United. Americans are now banned from a lot of countries. Uh, if you had predicted this several years ago, everybody would have thought you were an alarmist, but it's come to pass. Professor. Can he turn this? He being the president? Can he turn this around? And if so, what does he have to do to do that? Number one. He needs to get a handle on the pandemic. He needs to show leadership. Uh, he needs drastically to ramp up. Uh, testing, get people to wear masks and if he were able to get Americans to wear masks 70 80 90% That could go a long way not to ending the pandemic, but possibly depending the curve. Uh, if he doesn't do that, it's going to get worse and his political fortunes are very much in jeopardy. And right now, it looks like he's faltering as we mentioned in the polls, But you know this could have a long term effect for the GOP party down the road. That's right. If the election were held today, Republicans would lose both chambers of Congress would suffer a catastrophic defeat for the presidency that gets them into a deep hole. And even worse than that, Uh, you have members of Congress who have hitched their wagons to Donald Trump. And, uh, it's kind of like Republicans in the 19 thirties, coming out a CZ Hoover Republicans. We all know what happened to the Republican Party during the 19 thirties. It's gonna be a long long recovery for Republicans if he doesn't turn it around very quickly, And I guess the old adage, time will tell is what's important

"Inland Lakes Wisconsin just south of the state's border with Michigan there was once a house on West Bay Lake a Victorian built in the nineteen tents, surrounded by Scrub Oak, and then northern Pines, it once held twenty rooms. The property was initially used as a rustic resort before it was renovated into a stately mansion by civil engineer and businessman Robert Lamont in nineteen sixteen. Lamont his wife Helen Gertrude would vacation there during the nineteen twenty s, and through his tenure as President Herbert hoovers secretary of Commerce during the Great Depression. The Lamont's called their home summer wind. Lamont left the President Service in nineteen, thirty, two likely withdrawing to the mansion to recuperate after an exhausting and in many ways fruitless effort to pull the United States out of its economic spiral. According to a frequently repeated legend, the couple was having dinner in the houses kitchen one night when the door to the basement shook itself. Revealing the spectral form of a man. Lamont panicked in fired two shots as the door swung shot leaving two bullet holes in the door. Perhaps it was this experience that caused the couple to flee the house. The details of when and why the Lamont sold their property are unclear. What is now is that by the time Lamont died in nineteen, forty eight summer win belong to the Keefer family who also used it as a vacation getaway. Unfortunately the Kiefer's experienced many misfortunes in summer wind, according to one story Mr Keefer passed away in less than a year after they purchased the house, leaving his wife in despair and dire financial trouble. Across the three decades, the Kiefer's haunted. The house deteriorated with neglect, and its land was eventually subdivided and offered up for sale.

"It's been a week of anger, anguish and heartbreak here in New York City. And across the country.

The threat of active duty military being deployed to control citizens exercising their constitutional rights. The ongoing drumbeat of white supremacy coming from the White House. The People's House now, an embattled presidency fortress peaceful protesters described as terrorists. From day to day and hour to hour, I've been alternately sickened and heartened. Filled with despair, and then lifted up by the voices of people across the country, demanding revolutionary change because black lives matter. And making a history, we're proud and humbled to stand with them. All black lives matter. LGBTQ black lives matter. On Wednesday afternoon I was sitting at my desk and heard noise I couldn't identify coming through my open window. My partner born and I went outside to see what was going on.

They were heading north, and in a few blocks be passing the apartment complex where fired Rushton once lived. He was a principal architect of the march on Washington for jobs and freedom. In August nine hundred and sixty three, a quarter of a million Americans massed in Washington D. C. at the foot of the Lincoln memorial to demand an end to state sanctioned racism. In this revisiting the archive episode, you'll hear buyers Rushton in his own words. In, addition to coordinating the nineteen sixty three march on Washington, fired was one of the organizers of the very first freedom ride through the American south in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty seven. And was mentor to Dr. Martin Luther, King Junior from the time of the Montgomery bus boycott. Barred Rushton was a proud black gay man who paid a high price for proclaiming who he was long before. It was remotely safe to do so. He put himself in harm's way over and over again subjected to attacks by white supremacists who uses race and sexuality to try to destroy him.

Exporting Authoritarianism

Why It Matters

Exporting Authoritarianism

"I will relate that interesting story. The president of Kazakhstan actually visited a company called hike. Vision is another one that provides surveillance technology visit their office in China and he saw how with one. Click on a person's face. You could get that person's school history work history financial situation. Wow and wait for it. How did this person spend his or her leisure time? So where did this person go to have fun? Did you go to the movies? Did you stop by the bank to go to the post office where you hang out with friends? Did you participate in a protest and his reaction after seeing all of this was we need this technology. That's not where I thought the story was going. This is probably not the first time you're hearing about China's surveillance technology and that's because it gets a lot of coverage it's like a Black Mirror episode. It gives us visions of a dystopia in future but this technology and the eagerness of some countries to begin implementing. It is only a small part of a much bigger story about China through its belt and road initiative China's in the process of building and funding infrastructure projects across the globe and loaning vast sums of money in the developing world. Some observers argued that as it does this. China is also exporting its authoritarian model of government and eroding democratic norms. That many of us take for granted others say that China is simply taking business opportunities where it sees them and providing countries with an alternative to a global order that has gone unchallenged for decades. The debate comes down to one question. How will we choose to view China as they pour money into hospitals ports and roads around the World I'm Gabrielle? Sierra and this is why it matters today is China exporting authoritarianism. I think the most important thing to understand about China's foreign policy over the past ten years or so is that it really has been transformed. This is Elizabeth Economy. She's a senior fellow and director for Asia. Studies here at the council. She's also a distinguished visiting fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution beginning in about two thousand and eight with global financial crisis China's hosting the Olympics. These are really moments that defined in the minds of many Chinese leaders that China was rising. Chinese have many goals for these Olympics. One of them was to announce to the world. The China is back after two hundred years. China's economy has grown faster than that of any other major country. The Asian giant has now grown into one of the most important export markets for manufacturers from all over. The world is a period of historic change in China. There haven't been many periods in history as fascinating as this so there was a real sense within China for the first time that they had always expected that at some point China was going to surpass the United States but maybe that time was coming sooner than they anticipated. But what really has changed the game on the ground has been Xi Jinping everything for Xi Jinping is under the mantra of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and it is a call for reclaiming a much greater degree of centrality for China on the global stage. Xi Jinping became China's president in two thousand thirteen some observers have called him the most powerful Chinese leader since Mao Zedong. Look I think there are any number of objectives and we can find them all and Xi Jinping's writings and speeches but fundamentally what I think. Xi Jinping attempting to do is simply to make the world safer authoritarianism. Teaching is a dictator but dictators. Still have to answer to domestic constituents. This is Jessica. Chance Weiss associate professor of government at Cornell and a leading expert on Chinese politics. She has a different take on China's expansion. One that sees it as being less offensive and more defensive. China's concerned about a whole lot of different risks. Some of them domestic others ones. That emanate from abroad sparks. That might start the prairie fire and bring down the Chinese government and might take units overriding purpose is to continue to make the world safe for the Chinese Communist Party to strive at home. So this is a world that safe for autocracy to coexist alongside democracy in the international space. So it's not been as ideological I think and it's foreign policy is some admitted. It out to be so. China is trying to find a way to sort of fit in with a world. That might not be comfortable with its model of government tried to make space for its form of government to be regarded as one that can continue to exist that is legitimate than democracy isn't the only form of government so to speak and so this has made it easier for other authoritarian states to survive

The Stock Market Is Not the Economy

"Sarah Ponsak wrote in Bloomberg. The market isn't the economy though it's at least a reflection of it and a bet on what will thrive in the future unsurprisingly amid a crisis bent on keeping everyone at home bets are coalescing around companies that ease the burden of being locked indoors she quoted Jack Genocea with a portfolio strategist at Nat Texas investment managers. They oversee a trillion dollars in assets. He said the I opener when you look at the ones you're worried about. He's talking about stocks within the five hundred airlines leisure companies. It's not a big chunk of the S. and P. Five hundred it's the old adage where the market isn't the economy that really hits an important piece here a lot of the stuff we're worried about. It's just not a big chunk of the S&P five hundred so maybe we should've react by selling off thirty five percent. Finally Matt Phillips in New York Times wrote a piece titled Repeat After me the markets are not the economy he wrote. The stock market looks increasingly divorced from economic reality. The United States is on the brink of the worst economic collapse since the Hoover Administration. Corporate profits have crumbled more than a million. Americans have contacted the krona virus and hundreds are dying each day. There is no turnaround site yet. Stocks keep climbing even as twenty point. Five million people lost their jobs in April the S. and P. Five hundred stock index logged. It's best month in thirty three years. The top five companies in the S P five hundred employees about one point two million workers worldwide the.

Grope hub has proposed an all-stock counter offer in which its shareholders would receive just over two UBER shares. For each grub up share. Hoover is expected to review the offer in the coming days any agreement would unite two of the biggest players in meal delivery during a surge in demand for their services.

Whole Family Wellness

"Hello friends and relatives. Welcome back to another episode of All. My relations were so happy. You're here Hello. Good morning good afternoon. Good evening hello hello. We have a really great episode for you today. We're talking with DOS Collins and Chelsea Lugar of the welfare culture initiative. They are two of our friends and colleagues who we have known for a long time in different areas of their life And we recorded this episode of few months ago back when Michigan was still pregnant so it was a really amazing opportunity to talk with them about the work that they do In thinking about wellness from a really kind of holistic perspective and indigenous perspective and how that takes into account we eat how we move our bodies what we think about especially during The time of life that Mantica was en and that Chelsea had been in not long Before her so we were bonus. Double excited 'cause we knew we had this episode coming and a couple of weeks ago in the New York Times. There was an article about food movements in Indian country and it featured Some really beautiful photographs of Fashion Chelsea and their daughter aloe And talked to them a little bit about the work they do. So what we thought. That could be a really great entry point into our conversation. thinking that many people might have encountered. They're work recently in the New York Times but then again I started actually reading the article and the article did what did what we always see. Which is that. It reinforced that poverty porn narrative and framed native people. You know from this perspective that put them in a place of of danger of survival as extinction they think it's essentially another extinction narrative. Almost and so I'd be really interested Adrian and in wondering how you might frame that if you were going to let say bright this article for the New York Times Okay so I am someone in my education research world. I think a lot about what we call deficit framing and it's something that You see a lot in research about quote unquote marginalized communities about native students in particular Where our communities? Our students are whoever we're talking about are always framed as lacking as As needing interventions as needing resources as being just framed is in a deficit Perspective and the difference between a deficit perspective. And then one. That is more in my work. I used the word. Goodness focus or like Asset based is looking at things from a position of strength and what communities already have and what they're bringing to the table and so this article is from the beginning. It's called how native Americans are fighting food crisis and the subtitle is as the corona virus limits access to food many are relying on customs like seed saving and canning that helped their forebears survive hard times so from the start. It's framed as though the corona virus is what is causing a food crisis in Indian country. And because of this moment all of a sudden people are returning to stroll knowledge is in traditional customs quote unquote which is like a word. I hate It's very anthropological. But they go on to The reporter interviews people that are incredible leaders in these areas in their communities. Folks that she actually Got Access to a lot of the names from my friend and colleague Liz Hoover who is an incredible food sovereignty researcher who is not mentioned anywhere in the article but The folks that are profiled in here people that we know their their names through this work. Milo yellow hair in weight loss and Chelsea Rebecca and Stephen Webster in night a Folks in San Carlos like it's just a a list of really incredible leaders but they're all framed as there's a crisis and they are reacting to it rather than if I would have written this article to your question. I very clearly would have framed. This as here is a moment where we are worried about the food supply chain in what is currently known as the United States. And here's a chance for us to look to indigenous communities as leaders in how to take care of one another and how to use and social and traditional knowledge is that have always been there To lead us through this moment and into a future that looks different than what we have now. A better and brighter future around our food and food security because a lot of these communities that are profiled here actually like aren't in a moment of crisis around their food systems they are just shifting their policies and practices to to what people are needing right now. And that's a beautiful model that a lot of communities be learning from like the work that Brian Yazdi is doing in. Minneapolis around feeding Urban elders and community members through traditional foods. That in itself is an amazing story. And instead it's just a little blip in this article about how he didn't have any catering jobs so started volunteering. So I just think the framing of it overall could have really been from this point of strength talking about that. Our communities know how to help one another no. The power of traditional foods know how to work with the land that they live on All of these things that are really important lessons for everyone rather than framing it as some sort of food crisis and yes like we do have food insecurity in Indian country. There's also a lot of amazing lessons that can be learned from the work that these folks have been doing for decades. This isn't something that just popped up in the last few months lifetimes of work that people have been putting in to get us to this point to be able to access those resources and serve our communities in the ways that they need right Like the the ability. I noticed in this article that they talk about some Alaska fishermen and hunters and that these folks are doing this. You know to prepare for crisis. When in fact we know especially I being able to relate to fishing culture that we go fishing and put up food for winter and every springtime. You know it's something that my family has been doing for generations and our communities have been doing generations and it's a part of the intergenerational knowledge that we highly value in our communities. I was taken back when I read the book about Rohan White Because Rohan white is one of those women that Hey I hope we introduce you to on this podcast but B. I think of a Shiro. She's one of my. She's one of the most inspiring women I've ever encountered in all of Indian country. I had the privilege of taking one of her seed saving workshops and I was so moved by her indigenous intelligence her connection to land in her connection to seeds. And how empowering an empowered I felt after spending just one afternoon with her where she gave me seeds and made me feel like it was okay to grow them and how that important and she's been doing this work for a very long time and she started a whole food sovereignty movement along with Liz and others and in this article it talks about her growing heirloom seeds. Which is I think. It's just wrong. Because she doesn't grow heirloom seeds. She grows pre colonized seeds. Oh she she grows ancestral seeds. And you know it also says that she's doing this as a as a response to closed casino revenue which is so silly ruins been doing this empowering people because the people needed and because she was called to do this work and because she's been doing it for a really long time and I don't want to speak for her you know but I just. I'm really disappointed with the way that we are. Continuously framed in massive media and mass media especially in this New York Times article. I really hope that there will come a time that maybe instead you get to write the article nuts an outsider writing it for us.

Bad Day for Cash

"It's Thursday may seventh walking to market fully. I'm Chris L. Joining me. The one and only bill barker good to see you good to be here. Earning season just continues to roll along. We're going to talk about the delivery economy. The working from home economy. We're going to start with the war on cash and at the moment cash needs to call a timeout because cash giving its butt kicked square and pay pal both out with first-quarter reports boats stocks up more than ten percent. And it seems like this was less about the results that square and payback delivered in the four first quarter and more about the way everyone is thinking about. Non-cash payment business. Yeah I think that's fair They're interesting reports and this is not maybe certainly not only them but Lift for instance I think or pay Pals report sort of breaks down results into the january-february period And then the march period and then the April period and then go forward period so when they talk about rapidly evolving business situations Many other companies are in the same boat where there's a pretty happy story to tell according to the numbers for January February and then a big change in March and then maybe a stabilization for these companies in April. And then just. We don't know what's going to happen going forward right and true of all businesses. They pretty much. If if there's one thing one unifying thread through every one of these conference calls regardless of the business it's people saying but we don't really know which is totally understandable but in the case of pay pal the I totally understand why they are eager to talk about the current quarter. It's like yes here's our. Here's our first quarter report but once we're done with this let's talk about what's happening in Q. Two because what we're seeing is pretty exciting stuff. Yeah they're seeing. I think quarter million new subscribers a day. Something like that is the pace. They're on right now. I think may I was the largest increase or the largest number of new users. They've ever had This is an acceleration of the future. Really you've covered it You've thrown the war on cash name around it People been following it and this Accelerates what has been going on To cash and where it's going and pay pal has been one of the principal beneficiaries of this A little bit more so than square for the last quarter. But they're both enjoying the very nice days. Stocks Square is is is more reliant on small businesses in a in a way that pay pal. Isn't I mean just for anyone who's been to a small independent shop or a farmer's market or something like that where you know you walk into a tent you think about buying whatever they're selling and they've got the little square thing that you swipe right there so I mean that's that's probably putting a little bit of dent in their q one numbers but it's hard to imagine square not succeeding over the next five to ten years? Yeah it's the you know little white square boxes where Swipe your credit card that you come to know and perhaps love perhaps not love? I mean I have discovered when I am operating with any sort of square interaction that there's a new opportunity to tip somebody at the counter for something that in almost all other circumstances. I don't find myself tipping for this option to just would you like to just go ahead and add? I don't know ten fifteen eighteen twenty percent onto that Which doesn't occur everywhere else. But it's just enough of to guilt me into doing that often. So your and you didn't give specific examples but it sounds like you're talking about. Hey if I'm a coffee shop. Yeah if I had some change or whatever. I'd throw that in the tip jar if I go to an independent bookshop. I'm not necessarily looking to tip the person I'm buying the book from no and yet here a square asking me whether I might consider that So the little square devices aren't getting much business in an era where people are not going into the little small shops but the CASH APP. is Is is doing good business for them and you know competitor then. Mo and You know all the money That you probably owe me for instance you can Use either of those two. Oh you don't owe me any money at the moment you now. I'd be like what are you talking about you? You were in that poker game the other week. That was not a poker game bill. Man Be Twenty Bucks No I. I did hear that you were the person walking away with the money. Yeah Yeah and and now you don't even have to see bill man you can just like send a message on slack and just be like hey man then give me my twenty bucks. Let's move onto the delivery economy and help me understand this because we got. We'RE GOING TO GET THE FIRST QUARTER RESULTS FROM UBER. After the closing bell today but we already got first-quarter results from lift and grab hub and on the surface. It would appear as though grub hub had the better first-quarter results and yet because they broke even and everyone was expecting hub to report a loss and Rub. Shares are down ten twelve percent. Meanwhile lift stock is up more than twenty percent this morning. It's still down for the year but maybe it was The benefit of low expectations but first quarter revenue for lift was up twenty three percent compared to a year ago. Yeah well there's a difference between a stock that is up twenty three percent to get back to about half of the price. It was a couple of months ago And the stocks like Paypal and square. That are at you know approaching all-time highs off of the you know perhaps You know some of the earnings expectations. you know changed around their stories. I think for you know lift. Things are improved over yesterday. Mostly in the sense that the company has reported. It's it's going to save about three hundred million dollars a year on run rate basis On its operations by scaling back on some of it's expensive. So that's that's the better part of the story there. Really the The numbers declined. Of course precipitously in in March And and continue to be In April Over where they were in January and February. But you know the company was sowing pretty pretty strong growth going into the beginning of this For the whole quarter twenty three percent. increased revenue for the quarter. That's completely on the back of the strong. I two months it do. You have any teams like every quarter when home depot comes out with their results. Lows comes out the next day and it's almost always similar but not quite as good. I don't know if we have enough data because they uber and lift haven't been public companies nearly as long as Home Depot and Lowe's but any should we look at Uber reporting after the bell today and think. Oh yeah it'll probably be about what lift is doing. Yeah and in part because Hoover's already announced The massive Layoffs that were announced yesterday and that was I can't remember exactly how many people it was But it was massive In terms of the business so I think that they'll be able to quantify what the savings from that are going to be They obviously found ridership way. Way Off Right now and they've got to find saving somewhere and that usually comes at the cost of employees. So that is. I think the reason that it's up today aside from just the you know the mimicking lift is the. There's I don't know that this would affect the stock price but the announcement that it is a taking an investment in Lime and getting rid of its scooter business and I guess. combining that with limes I I don't know about where you live but where I live. Yeah we need some consolidation in the scooter business way too many of them and it's just again now. These aren't all going to survive. So yeah the sooner you all can get together and decide which brand is going to survive the better. We're all going to be. Yeah I have not found myself using any of the scooters that have plentiful an available wherever you go around Alexandria but Also getting back to Grub a down thirteen percent today. I think that the results today you would have to have believed that if there were a time when Grubb was going to have a great quarter it would be the one just announced So the fact that they weren't really able to translate to additional orders into additional profitability and have said that they are nearly all of their profits. the in the coming quarter are going to be used to generate additional orders for the restaurant partners. Okay you know being a good partner with the restaurants which they have been accused of not being a great partner to restaurants in the past maybe long term but you know they're they're a company that you would think well they. They be raking it in right now. And that's that's really not the case. Yeah this is absolutely one of those times where it's I think. Completely Fair for investors to look at a business and say it's put up or shut up time if Grub can't get it done at a time when there's a national pandemic and people trapped inside their homes. I'm sorry Yup it may be time to move on and where you know. The the UBER EATS is a legitimate competitor. as his door dash but I think that that will be one of the interesting things to get a from. This evening's call by Uber They're gonNA see the ridership way way way down but ubereats will make up Some of those losses For the company and say the other thing that they'll be pointing to is is the money that they have been able to save going forward With the UNFORTUNATE LAYOFFS. That are necessary. Let's ramp up with Peleton Shares of Peleton fifteen percent hitting an all time high although it's only been a public company since last September so but still a good day for Peleton third quarter report big again not surprising big jump in sales big jump in membership huge huge jumping in sales up sixty six percent something like that And the subscription revenue is up more more than that and this is without one of their principle items Really available for sale in most cases that is they're they're better known for the bikes but they also sell What I would deem to be outrageously expensive treadmills you might be able to comment on that because you're the ultra marathoner here and They sell treadmills which they can't Install right now because they can't go into people's houses and it takes a couple multiple repairman to construct these things. But they're forty three hundred dollars and What what do you think about that so? I don't have a treadmill in my home. I have never been interested in having a treadmill in my home so I I can't say I have a good sense of what a reasonable price for a treadmill. Is You know why that is. I prefer running outdoors. 'cause it's yeah you're from Maine. So the the worst weather that northern Virginia has to offer. You is like kind of a joke to you. Know to your makeup right. I mean I'm not a big fan of running in driving rain but yeah I'll run twelve months out of the year. Sure yeah and weaker people than yourself. Less hardy people from America really Are are willing to spend apparently forty three hundred dollars on a treadmill or will according to Peleton when they're able to bring these people these devices into people's homes and construct them in the meantime the twenty to twenty five hundred dollar bikes Are going like hotcakes. there's a panic buying. Apparently you know according to I think the New York Times of of these New New York Times readership probably intersex fairly well with Palestinians subscribers so They've had the largest class in their history. Twenty three thousand people In one class And just all the numbers up and down. Look Great and At the moment not that they want to rub it in but the nobody's really rubbing it in when they're having a very good quarter right now. They're couching their enthusiasm for results in in more muted terms than that. But they're having the last laugh over everybody who is trying to dance upon their graves for their Christmas ads. They certainly are. And it's not hard for me to imagine that businesses start to get involved with Peleton and by that I mean if we are going to. We're going to see a shift in businesses where businesses conducted. I don't know about you. I'm already hearing from friends of mine. Who Work in Manhattan and there in situations where a fifty thousand square feet of office space in downtown Manhattan and. Now they're saying well. We don't think we're going to need this anymore. And instead we're just GONNA find a couple of smaller footprint places out in the suburbs instead of fifty thousand square feet. We're going to need about ten thousand square feet. We're going to shift how we spend money as a business. We're going to be spending less on office space but we want to make sure our employees are happy and so instead of subsidizing their commute. We're going to subsidize their Home Office. And it wouldn't shock me at all in the next six months start hearing about businesses that are using. Peleton as a way to recruit people could be could be. You should Do Pr for them. I think they're doing fine. Npr FOR THEM BILL Mark. Thanks for being

"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. No one, but J Edgar Hoover could've gotten away with such a sweeping effort to undermine dissent in America by nineteen fifty six Hoover had outlasted more than a dozen attorneys, general and four presidents the director and the bureau were I cons universally known almost universally admired more than three decades into his tenures director Hoover was essentially untouchable co Intel pro was the result of Hoover's lofty status combined with Eisenhower's fear of communist violence. But the truth was the communist movement in America had faded significantly by the late fifties. The communist party had about eighty five thousand members at its peak in the nineteen thirties, but by nineteen fifty two membership had dipped to just over thirty thousand according to the I s Mets out of more than one hundred fifty million Americans and the dour trend continued by nineteen fifty nine a typical American was one hundred times. 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. Proves a point that director has always made that starry eyed liberals can be as much menace as the communists themselves agent. Encourage secorski to respond to the review in his nationally syndicated column broadcast the week of March seventeenth nineteen fifty eight. He did I wonder how oaks can possibly know what one hundred seventy million Americans except but apart from that of what importance is such a statement except to belittle J. Edgar Hoover Sikorsky's response. Trivialize oak point and demonstrated how closely Hoover's friends in the media dented with director any criticism of Hoover's judgement or actions would be viewed as a personal tack on Hoover and his allies.

"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. But there were plenty of reporters. Editors producers willing to make the deal. The public was clamoring for stories of famous outlaws and access to the FBI offered.

So they've got red green and yellow in their diet system. Now, green means it is much of it as you want. Yes. Those are probably leafy greens. Yellow go with caution. Okay. If it's mellow yellow. You're twenty two years old. There's no such thing as caution. Right. I have no caution. I'll eat as much as I'd like. That's all right. I ate it with caution red consume only minimal amounts. Well, again, you're twenty two years old what? Yeah, minimal amounts and then again, look at what they're being fed. And then they're going to put something that they want to gorge on in front of them. And they're gonna when you're young with alcohol. Okay. Right. Be careful guys. Don't drink too much. Well, what's too much for you? Right. For me too much for me. I I can do twelve bears. That's not an issue. I'm now six shots problem. Hey, exactly. That's how you get them to stop drinking goes, well, they drink too much, and they stopped. Who was I was I was looking at digitize all these old I'll have to share these point in time, Cisco take a little work, but I digitized basically my life television recently. And there was an a story. I did speaking of marines. There was a story because I think this guy was. What branch of the military was he his name was. He was one of the he was one of the top. Test pilots of all time. Hoover. Hoover. Look up this last name test pilot Hoover, ROY Hoover Hoover. What's his Bob Hoover? Bob hoover. Bob. Hoover hoover. Bob hoover. What branch of the service will air force? So Bob Hoover. Whether great test pilots of all time I interviewed him years ago when I worked in Reno Reno air races. Bob hoover. Also Br Brian once you come up and my big yellow biplane he had a two seater plane, then he would take to all these events wanted me to go up with him. I'm like, no, thanks. Okay. I was just gonna say so I love my brother-in-law going. I gave my brother-in-law this. You know, I gave him the video camera to operate my place. Yeah. But I remember Hoover. He was telling me this because we have a lot of time to talk about stuff. So he's telling me about the time. He was involved in a drinking contest. And so it's you know, it's shots shots of whiskey. I don't know. And he would do this regularly. I think I may have asked him about it. Because I read about it. Now verifies the story. So what he would do is, you know, he'd like. Okay. It just he's plowed down the shots. Yeah. And then he would always say, okay. I'll be back. I'll be back for more. I gotta go take a leak. Well, he goes to the bathroom and throw up. And then he he'd be ready for more. Right. And they couldn't understand why this never amazing never affects him. He said, I just go in the back of barf. Said I could win any drinking contact, you know, what that's called the Pukhan rally. That's exactly what that's called. So for some reason. Okay. So again, hey, and he did all he did that however many times he lived to be ninety four. He only recently died, right? Yeah. October. I think of last year, and I remember they took away his qualification for flying. And he said, all right. Forget it. If I can't qualify here. I'll go supply. I think he ended up going to Australia, and he was in air shows in Australia. He couldn't pass the deal here. October two thousand sixteen is when he passed away. Super good guy. How I think in his I may be getting fused with somebody else. I think also in his bag a trips there was an escape from a prison during World War Two. There's something about that as well. He was just an incredible guy with all of these wild stories escaped a POW camp by stealing German airplane. That's it. He is the greatest scape. Yeah. That's the story. I forgot about that. Yeah. He literally he escapes a German, prison and flies. And I think it was one of those deals now he doesn't know where he's going exact because he has no maps, you just flies hoping he lands at the right airport during World War Two while based in North Africa. Mr. Hoover, flew, fifty eight missions. Credible germans. Oh, wow. Okay. So in February of nineteen forty four. He was shot down off the coast of southern France was plucked from the sea by a German patrol boat. He and his friend came. Came upon a field. He said he spent more than a year in the German camp before he and a fellow American climbed the fence and fled to the nearby woods. They ended up stealing a German plane and flying away. Oh my gosh. They flew along the coast of Germany toured the Netherlands I didn't have any maps or charts. Yes. I knew that. If I turned west and followed the shoreline, I would be safe when I saw windmills, right? That was a windmill cool. This. This guy was like I mean, I'm with this guy. Right where we're spending our whole whole afternoon together. And it's like it's like a story book come to life. He landed in a field and was quickly surrounded by Dutch. Farmers with pitchfork. Yes. Yes, soon afterward a British army truck rolled up, and Mr. Hoover was taken to safety. I mean and to meet a guy like that. And he was just so normal and yet with this normal guy. He's lived he's lived through things that most most men would would crumble under the pressure. He said his friend of actually they found the plane and the German planes and start engine started. But Mr. Hoover's buddy refused to get in the plane vowing that after he had been shot down you would never fly. Again. He took his chances on foot and was reunited with Mr. Hoover years later, your kid be. So he wouldn't go up. He was so he wouldn't do. Wow. I'll take my chances on the ground because the the plane that they found was damaged, but it had a full gas tank. Wow. Oh my gosh. German mechanic approached Mr. Hoover's friend pulled a gun on him. We told them unless he could get us airborne fast. We were going to kill him, Mr. Hoover, recalled all my gosh. So okay. This guy's total bad ass. So this guy drinking contests. What I?

"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. Right. I want to talk a little bit about the life after the. Angeles thing. And this was from I was reading a tech crunch story from earlier this year about you, and there was some I'm paraphrasing now, but it was something about how product since the acquisition has kind of lost some of its cool. I know if you know, I know at article, you know what I'm talking about..

"Yeah and from what i gather hoover really cleaned house when he took over there like he fired everyone considered to be political appointees or just unqualified for the job he instituted the strict policy of background checks interviews physical tests for any new applicants and this kind of rigor was applied to everything not just hiring there were some pretty weird rules he had around there like for instance hoover even forbade his agents from drinking coffee at work after eight fifteen in the morning way why i don't know exactly but i imagine it was some sort of judgment on people needing these stimulants that late in the work after eight fifteen is weak agents guess so but at any rate hoover whipped the bureau and the shape and congress began the take notice they increase the agency's funding which allowed hoover to develop the first crime lab for gathering and analyzing evidence and then in nineteen thirty five impressed with what hoover at accomplished and his time is director congress decided to make the bureau of fullfledged federal agency and keep hoover as its director and you know now that they're finally allowed to carry guns and make arrests the fbi actually turned his attention from these radical communist groups to armed gangsters so they're going after these folk heroes like pretty boy floyd and baby face nelson this obviously helped the agency's public perception when hoover's cool collected agents start taking down these thugs yeah you know and hoover and his fbi agents were pretty much rockstars by this point in fact i saw this old poll from nineteen thirty six there are eleven thousand american school boys who were asked to vote on who they considered the most popular man in the country and this is just mind boggling to me so the president at the time was fdr he managed to land and i think it was like seventh place but the fbi director he came in second second place i don't even know how many people in the us how many school kids especially could name the fbi director at this point it's just unbelievable.
