"Print and in media and physically attacked for this stuff. Look, you know, it's so far out of my and my Wikipedia page in the first line that, says Ami Horowitz, right wing filmmaker. If you look at Michael Moore's Wikipedia page, it, says Michael Moore, American filmmaker, no word of leftist or any politics whatsoever in Wikipedia page in that first paragraph, that's I mean, that is what we're dealing with. They control all the levels of mainstream media and I got people have got to wash the entire video. It's on Penny calm because it really emphasizes and highlights the fact these people, they will say the words like tolerance and unity and compromise. But those words have no meaning to them. It doesn't there. Just try statements. When you push them on that they will. Where could be compromised Because you and I do want to compromise. They're nowhere to be found they had no answers because in reality They're hollow words. They don't want to compromise. They don't want unity. They want destruction. All right. We really appreciate you being with us. Ami Horowitz that video that he took his on Hannity dot com. Thank you, sir. For being with us. 809 41. Shawn is our number. You wanna be a part of the program? Sharon is in the great state of California. Well, the People's Republic of California. What's going on? Sharon? Harry, you I'm great. Thank you So much for taking my call. First time caller, Um e really wanted to talk about the council culture and the left and how it's destroyed Conservative business and people's lives. But this is the very tax base that they needed, especially with the Biden. Tax plans. Um, if you just shows the idiocy of the left and their disdain for any opposition, no matter what the logic, it's just complete intolerance, and it's just shocking that they're destroying a tax base. And I'm not quite sure how they're going to Sustain this much longer, You know, I mean, a lot of this, You've experienced it out in California. It's It's almost mainstream and in states like California, New York, and it's you know the look a Tommy Horowitz's tape was taken in New York City. What do you expect? There's such intolerance. Um it's worrisome. It's concerning. You know the halls of Congress. Now, you know, snap impeachment. They needed an investigation. We needed to figure out how this happened. Now we do that. We're learning so much more that they had indications that they were organizer's to this even before the day came, and Request for the National Guard were denied, even as it was beginning to unfold. Those request denied. Now The Washington Times and their report another news reports from other outlets. Even fake news, CNN. Even The Washington Post about specific calls specific threats Washington Times, saying that initial court documents, two suspects arriving On or before January. 6 with explosives. Tactical gear cashes A weapons Facebook come down comes under fire. They failed to remove stop the steel pages allegedly used by organizer's weeks and even months ahead of the rally that they had a problem with Washington Post the FBI knew beforehand. For plans of a quote war at the Capitol. These these air organizer's now and you know, getting to the bottom of this is pivotal because this is our country, for crying out loud. You know this to me is we have shown every enemy of the United States that a vulnerability that it is frightening to me. That this could happen in our capital and that we did nothing to prevent it and that they had early indications and request for help and support, you know, were denied. How does that happen? It's shocking, and I studied that the impeachment went through so quickly without any investigation. Looking a day We had the information public, but it was known prior. It's very, very difficult times for our country and I'm quite concerned, but I do you want people should be Thank you. That speaks out. He speaks up to do what we can to bring this to the forefront there. There is no tolerance and it's just idiocy on their part. And people need to look at that deeply. Thank you. We appreciate it every chuck Schumer said, You know, don't mess with the Intel Committee. There are intelligence community. Okay. Eight ways to Sunday Well, You know, I experienced that firsthand. President elect latest latest unsolicited pronouncement on the intelligence community. This was history just a little while ago tonight. Did you see the scare quotes there? The intelligence briefing on so called Russian hacking was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange, But he's taking these shots antagonisms taunting to the intelligence community you take on the intelligence community. They have six ways from Sunday and getting back at you. So even for a practical, supposedly hard nosed businessman, he's being really dumb to do this. Don't they're exposed the deep state. Is that why I have 30 twos on me?.
Who is underpricing Roblox?
"Which filed to go public last year was going to debut as any said before the year some. Ipo's went out that were rather exuberantly received. And is that it. Whoa whoa whoa hold on. Because robots was going to let a lot of shareholders sell their shares at the ipo price in the offering and they didn't those shares me miss price fair enough so what they've done is they have raised a five hundred twenty million dollars series. H at eight twenty nine point five billion dollars valuation effectively replacing what they would have done in the ipo raise. And then they're going to direct list. So everyone will be unburdened in able to sell their shares. That they'd like to their experience the traditional ipo process and into the blocks brand a sufficiently large drive interest in the company. Now guys we've all heard ad nauseam complaints from adventure. Classes danny's old stomping grounds. That banks mismanaging. Ipo's underpricing them and rewarding their clients essentially with free money. Here's my question now. Roadblocks us at a price for itself thousand nine point five billion. What do we say out. And it's worth thirty five billion the first day won't they also have yet again mistrial. Peo- does this situation. This new solution actually fix anything. I think one of the big challenges. They faced the raises past brown from driessen. In february twenty twenty it was valued at four billion and they raise one hundred fifty million bucks with tiny percentage. and what. you're seeing the exact same thing this time with the series h five hundred twenty million at twenty nine point five billion valuation one point seven percent solution. So it's very tiny. But i think what they wanted to do was sent a very strong signal to the market of. Here's where we see the price. Today there are investors who are investing at this price. Last price was four billion. This is thirty. And i think they wanted to market support for the argument that they should be valued at this price. I don't think they looked at a lot of the other things on the market. And like wow. It's really hot. That was the story line. And i just. I'm very skeptical. But i think this is a proof point of saying look. There is actually market depth at these prices. And it sets the tone of the ipo more strongly than if they had just gone out. Kind of blindly. When we're i want to get into take on this but like we hear a lot of complaints from these about bankers mispricing. Startups andriessen bought a bunch of shares from roadblocks earlier in twenty twenty out of four billion dollar valuation. Now it's worth thirty. That's seven and a half times as much. Who's underpricing roadblocks. Here is that the bankers. Or is it andriessen horowitz. I have a suspicion. That it's the bbc's. I think it's amazing that we never talked about that. We always say. Oh the cow. Well the vc's did not dramatically underpriced screwing the employees who are doing the work out of equity and a fair representation for the show when you see these numbers. I know you're more early stage person. But how does this make you feel one. That's awesome framing alex. So i love that. I thought about snowflake when i saw robots giving that twenty nine point billion number when snowflake was planning to go public at its last raise it was valued at twelve point. Five billion obviously one of the most successful. Ipo of twenty twenty its market cap on. A went out was thirty three point. Seven billion a huge difference. And i think maybe roe is feeling in some ways. Like snowflake miss price. Let's just feel that confident about ourselves. I don't know if that's a fair enough. Compared because i'm sure they're very different businesses but if robots is misplaced and a lot bigger it will also be one of the most successful. Ipo of all time. The new price for robotics is crazy over you. I think one of the big questions we have to ask what's flow the ipo. Look at this. And i got his ms price. Well at a certain point of you're only doing one point six percent solution like of course you want to get you want to nail it perfectly. But the reality is if you're only bloating one point six percent who cares the question at the. Are you floating fiber shares ten percent of the shares thirty percent of the shares. Because that to me is a huge difference compared to some of these earlier rounds where the delusion is much smaller. Yeah for sure. And one thing we've seen just circle back to the point of ipo's being cuoco. Mis-priced is a lot of companies have had a very thin flow and start to trade and so you've seen asymmetric demand from retail investors compared to very very limited shares available which of course ratchets up the initial trading price feeding fodder into the argument. That bankers are better pricing. And this is not to defend bankers. The point is this. it's not like everything is as cut and dry as fits into a tweet. That's what i'll say just to be clear. Andriessen is making the most noise about myspace. Ipo's it's actually benchmark. Don't want to conflate everybody in my head is just vc's but it's worth noting that girly for border a bit worker less active invest. Whatever he is america's area go.

Fresh update on "horowitz" discussed on Ben Ferguson
"Final news round up and information overload our my news round up information overload. Our Sean Hannity show will get to your calls, and our friend Ami Horowitz, documentarian extraordinaire will join us at the bottom. The hour and then we'll get to your calls. Member Rahm Rahmbo. Dead fish. Emanuel member never let a crisis go to waste. You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. What I mean by that. It's an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before. Well, our good friend and colleague of the Fox News Channel. Former Congressman Jason Chaffetz actually has a brand new book out. It's called, They never let a crisis go to waste the truth about disaster liberalism. And he discusses a lot of everything that we've talked about and joins us. Now, By the way, I was honored that you gave me an early copy of the book, and I got to breeze through it and give you a blurb for the book. Um And it's called guess it comes out in April, which were excited about. Well, thanks, John. No, I I do appreciate it. I think it people get this book. It will not only be illuminating to how democrats and liberal do this, but how they abused the system, and it's not just big items. It's not just Cove it. It's not just you know other things like that they used Just about everything that they can, whether it's fiction or truth, And it's often not a solution to the crisis at hand, but they use it to leverage and do other things that they would never, ever be able to do any other way because they would never get through. The normal course of business, and the book is just chock full of these examples. Time and time again how Democrats abused the system. It's the truth of how disaster liberalism work. You know, it's so scary, and, you know, now the president you've been involved deeply in this whole Russia Gate affair, and you actually know the Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Michael Horowitz made referrals in his report was, you know, I cannot believe we have not resolved these issues at this late date. Now the president is Has given an open released all the documents involved in this and my sources tell me that there is mysterious reluctance and resistance to follow the president's Edict is his legal order that he's put out there. Now I for the life of me, I can't understand why it's been so hard. You can easily remove sources and methods from any document doesn't take that long, Jason and let the public see for their own eyes. We've gone over in great detail what John Solomon has But you know, here we are over four years later, and we never get to the bottom of it. But the only people that they get in trouble you know, we did have in spite of Horowitz is referrals of deep state operatives. Nothing happens to them. But you know Roger Stone, a quote lied to Congress got 29 guys and tactical gear and frogmen and a preview dawn raid of his house. Would CNN cameras rolling away? Yeah. Roger Stone, others. What happened in General Flynn was an absolute travesty in this country for somebody who had served our nation so honorably for so long. I mean, that's just fundamentally wrong. And you're right. Inspector General Horowitz Had had put out more than 1000 pages made more than a dozen referrals, and only one person had any kind of slap on the hand. And it's one of the most discouraging things because I don't think the Department of Justice is administering justice. I think that lady justice with that blindfold, you know, kind of peaks and make sure that If there's a Democrat or a Clinton or abiding involved, you know we're just going to be hands off and move along. It's just e. It's beyond frustrating because you and I have been talking about this for years. Everybody sees it. Then the president says, Well, let's allow America to see it. And yet those documents continued to be sorted by the deep state. It's just disgusting. Let's talk about you going in great detail about how Corona virus has been a disaster for the country. Well, that's obvious. I mean, we lost a lot of fellow Americans with this thing. Um, it's I don't think we've ever been told the truth. I mean, the President building hospitals and building Peopie. We never run out of ventilators and masks and And gowns and gloves and shields and all of all of the things associated with it. They got it done. And now warp speed gets us a vaccine and millions of them now going into people's arms every day, and, you know, it's like you listen to the mob. The media the Democrats, you would think Donald Trump is responsible for the worst pandemic since 1917 and 18. That's not true. And a lot of scientists. I don't even critique them. I know they were doing their best. Nobody meant any harm. But there was so much confusion, false information given out. Predictions that were wildly off and you know you make decisions based on what you you think you know, not. We absolutely know and even politicizing. Um, treatments on Bearup you dicks for for for Corona virus. I mean, you know, don't listen to the doctors if Donald Trump says a good word about it. Yeah. I mean, Donald Trump will never get enough credit for what he did one of the best things about his presidency. His operation warp speed. He recognized back in late in January. The government wasn't going to come up with the solutions that private entities were going to do it. But as I point out in that book, they never let a crisis go to waste the truth about disaster liberalism. You had entities all across the country used that crisis. Leverage and do things that they would have never done other ways. For instance, the L. A teacher's union said. We're not going to go back to school and teach your kids and put them in glass room and tell you passed Medicaid for all. What? What does that have to do with coronavirus? It doesn't They tried to take away our guns. They tried to suppress us on social media, and the list goes on and on and on. And when government figures out that is that with the crisis, they can bypass the normal constitutional process. Guess what the number of crisis is they become unlimited because they have to solve a solution. Some of it's fiction. Some of it's real, but it doesn't actually solve the crisis. It just moves the Democrats agenda. Ford. Look what they're trying to do in voting. They're trying to change how we vote. E think cost an election. I really do. Well, I mean, you look at, for example, the Democrats never care. The media never really cared about Russian interference because they ignored the dirty dossier. They didn't care about premeditated fraud on the fires, according but they wouldn't feel the same way. If it all came out that Republicans did this or deep state operatives did this to Hillary or Joe. They cared about Ukraine and quid pro quo is, but not Joe. And zero experience. Hunter hypocrisy is everywhere. Um, and now we have a snap impeachment on top of the earlier ridiculous impeachment. And I'm one has to wonder Aziz now fax still emerging as to what actually happened, and those people that might have been involved in a pre planned attack against the capital of the organizers of this thing, It's a little scary that this is you know, this is the United States of America, but it is and I'm not sure if the stated policies of Joe along with big tech in the media protecting him every day. I mean, there's no telling what comes next. Yeah, I think that the media is going to take their go into hibernation take their collective nap for the next four years. Social media will continue to bear down on conservatives and not allow it. Dissenting voice. You know, it's kind of what I saw in 2009. When Joe Biden and Barack Obama came into place, one of the first things we dealt with fast and furious Biden and Obama, their administration put out 2000 weapons gave them to the drug cartels to see what would happen. Was that on the cover of Time magazine? No. But did they put Donald Trump Jr on the cover of Time magazine for having a stupid 20 minute meeting that led to absolutely nothing? Yeah, they did. And And it's just disgusting. All right, Jason Chaffetz. They never let a crisis go to waste. Well, looking forward to seeing it in book form. Thank you, sir..

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

Does The iPhone 12 Have A Secret Reverse Wireless Charging Feature?
"Does the iphone twelve have a secret reverse wireless charging feature built into it that apple has failed to mention maybe the products that they went to take advantage of such a feature aren't ready yet quoting the Verge Apple's iphone twelve lineup has the ability to wirelessly charge external accessory according to a series of newly unveiled FCC filings that just went public yesterday the documents I spotted by Venture Beats Jeremy, Horowitz says, the phone quote supports built in. inductive charging transmitter and receiver and quote apple has not officially announced any such functionality that could be used to charge future air pods or apple's long rumored tile competitor dubbed Air Tags quote in addition to being able to be charged by a desktop W. P. T. wireless power transfer charger twenty, twenty iphone models also support W. P. T. charging function at three hundred and sixty kilohertz to charge accessories. One of the documents reads it sounds like the iphone. Twelve reverse wireless charging may be limited at least at first the documents say that quote currently, the only accessory that can be charged by iphones is an external potential apple accessory in future and that reverse charging currently quote only occurs when the phone is connected to in AC power outlet and quote the FCC's testing appears to have been conducted using only a wall charger and USB cable presumably the same usb to lightening cable bundled with each iphone. Twelve, it sounds like the technology is meant to allow you to reduce the amount of charging clutter on a night stand by for example, wirelessly charging a pair of air pods magnetically attached to an iphone that's plugged into the wall.

So helping them with whatever blockers they have, because that's what your job is as a manager these people you have to help, support them and get their if they're failing it's. Your fault if they're failing and if they don't hit their goals, it comes back to you. It's still your fault. So we should do continue to do is continue to support your people and ultimately the easiest way to do that is just a continuing to care right the people that care your best marketers on your team will stay longer they're going to perform better, and it's just going to be a great work experience for them not motivated a up I think. In the past you know being direct and giving people the beat down all the time it doesn't work. It doesn't scale. So back to you, kneel. You should keep experimenting. What you'll find is even when something works for you right now, it may not work for you in the long run. For example, I used to do sign with Google on one of my earlier companies. Kiss Kiss metrics had a huge convergence like ninety plus percent, and then with crazy as we did, it grew conversions and then eventually years passed by and people had privacy insecurity concerns runs remove the signing with Google requirement are conversions went through the roof. Through the roof more like ten percent but it's still better than nothing and that's when we learned that you should enforce them. We give them the option and we bizarre conversions out that may or may not work for you. But the point I'm trying to make is just because something worked once it doesn't mean it's going to work for issue that keep. Experimenting and trying, and you've gotTA re experiment on the stuff that did produce fruitful results in the past because things change people get used things that it may not work as well and the future I think there's a quote here from injuries and Horowitz the venture firm strong views loosely held. I think it's really important to just to have a strong opinion on. Things. But if you see data that proves otherwise than just be willing to change your mind quickly, I think trying to have an ego in all of this it doesn't help for the long term I think the other thing I'll add to this is keeping in touch with people. So earlier talked about starting to network with people, meeting people but you. Just do a good job of every now and then circle back through hey, how're things going you know show a picture of her baby if you're neil or whatever like that helps emotion that helps you connect with people and I interviewed Jordan Harbinger of the Jordan Harbinger podcast he does really well for himself and you know he has a free networking course. Research Jordan Harbinger networking course it's really good east probably be charging for it but it literally tells you what to do like you know when you wake up in the morning you have these go to the bottom of your your message or your your text messages message people right and just figure out your own ways to keep in touch with people. We all have our own styles for me. I like to get a group of people together and maybe do zoom or do like a meet up if post covid but whole idea here is that you're keeping the motions going because of relationships go much further than just marketing but you know it's it's GonNa be good personal relationships and good good relationships. And, you should keep learning more whether it's from articles, networking events, conferences, virtual events looked the moment you
Apple's iOS 14 privacy settings will tank ad targeting business, Facebook warns
"Earlier this year apple released a Beta version of its new operating system. IOS Fourteen contains new privacy features that make it harder for companies to track users from APP TO APP yesterday, facebook said, the changes would cripple its audience network business. That's the part facebook that helps it serve targeted ads to facebook users when they're using outside APPs reporter Jeff Horowitz says, this is just the latest clash between the two tech giants. It fundamentally stems very different business models, facebook sales. ADS and they collect as much data as possible and from as many sources as possible apple historically at least sells devices. That's kind of a more focused on the immediate user obviously, and those different interests and different business models. Kind of conflict in which facebook generally wants the free flow of data and apple is I think known for being fairly stingy on that front, which many of its users will tell you exactly what they want that for based on privacy concerns.

To him today, I mean there are two books I read the First House of Silk in the second one was moriarty never houses silk, which was a pure amush to shuttle comes to doyle to his writing. I didn't want to shake anything because. My job was to to write a book that the doyle himself correct in other words to be none of us myself. It's the exact opposite of the word is murder where character in the book in the House of Silk I have to be invisible, both as the author of the Book Voice Within the book it is Doyle, and it is it is. It is Watson and Holmes and I am not part of it, so I was very very true to what had now. The Laws of the House of silk a mutton plot. It's not something that the wants them would ever have written then. I came to morality well. I really was feeling a little bit more devilish because. Having done what I considered to be, the best world could writing shuttle comes story this I took some of the characters in the Holmes books, but not what's not home and did this time? Do something very tricky? Indeed, the the book is cool morality. It is about the most evil man who ever existed origins as my determination from the start was to write an evil book. It, isn't it? So. Across your different John Ras books why to Sherlock Holmes to to the to the bond. Did you. Do you plot all of them in the same way? Is there a strategy that you deploy? That is kind of universal across your books, or is it different depending on the genre? It's something pretty much the same I. Just food out of the next book I'M GONNA. Right and what happens is this is With being commissioned like a James Bond novel or Sherlock, Holmes Story or even a new wolf. Oh now you know. I knew what the parameters are I.

I wasn't really trying I was gonNA actually pull that thread a little longer and be like this author has sold over thirty million copies. This author. This author has three. Books that have been turned into motion pictures this author, but the thing is is that for American audiences? I'm not sure Anthony Horowitz's actually like common parlance. True he is I would say he is a gem in British crowd I mean he's been knighted culture at war, or what will be well okay, and what? We decided we. We figured it out with that was. We are very American and we had to Google ob we did, and we google deserve the British empire instead of asking him. We Google that we decided it wasn't a very good thing to start the interview with. Yeah, but Anthony Horowitz so his one of his series Alex Rider the Alex Rider series, which is launching today on Monday. On Amazon on Amazon prime the TV show is launching on Amazon prime. He wrote the. Both of the most recent, Sherlock Holmes iterations Moriarty is the most recent. He was also tapped to write for Ian Fleming for an Fleming as James. Bone the new James Bond that book is trigger point, so let's just I mean the honesty, modern day. Modern Day modern day he he is the modern day conon doyle I mean he absolutely is or Agatha Christie or or Were Travis. Scott got his hand everything to. I would not have guessed that, but thank you for expanding beyond my very narrow lane of what I was mentioning A. He's just a master of the WHO done it. Yeah, and he magpie murders, probably one of his bigger hits over here in America, and he has a follow up to magpie murders coming out, in November, which we're very excited about reading and he also has the sentence is death. And the word is merger. I read that one which earned to fabulous books that he actually rates himself into He. He is quite the approach when it comes to his writing, which it's not just the traditional you know clue board who done it which Sutil, Cluedo it turns out. That's what they call it in England. Cluedo quite charming as things are and one of the. The one of the interesting parts of our conversation with Halfpenny Horowitz is that he writes every single day, and probably has for Hilton Facie in the interview. How much time he takes off and it will blow your mind yet, you you? You'll be very surprised by that because we. There's all different kinds of approaches from writers. You know you'll meet some writers whose almost seasonal? They might absolutely glennon doyle put up a post. A few months back episode one of the season one of the season.

You may have heard this before: Venture capital investing is not very diverse
"Earlier in this week we talked about how the tech industry should either hire more people of color or invest in them higher or wire on that ladder idea. The past few days have seen a few commitments from established venture funds. Softbank, launch. Day One hundred million dollar fund support people of Color Andriessen Horowitz launched at two point. Two Million Dollar Fund to support founders from quote underserved communities with a plan to expand it to fifteen million dollars over time, but if we're being honest here. That's not that much syrup. Kunst is the managing director of CLEO capital. They are real amounts of money, but compared to the size of the industry and the amount of underfunding that has happened. Black founders get less than two percent of all venture capital dollars, despite being fifteen percent of the population and starting companies at disproportionately high rates so that historical imbalance is certainly not going to be solved with you know these cumulative called one hundred fifteen million dollars in commitments that one hundred. Hundred fifteen million humility is already small, and then when you realize that it's not particularly earmarked for black or Hispanic, underrepresented minorities, you have to question how much is actually going to get into the hands of the people who you know have historically been underfunded the most right, and also, if we were talking about structural change, white year, mark money at all exactly and I think you know my fund cleo capital. We don't have a mandate around gender diversity that being said you know. Know, my portfolio is incredibly diverse. We have a lot of black founders. We have a lot of Asian and Indian in Hispanic founders. You know we. We have a lot of gay founders like we've. We just find great people and we invest in them, and they make us a lot of money are two best. Performing companies in the portfolio are founded by women of Color, and the other one is founded by a man of color and his business partner in both are immigrants the exact. Exact things that people are saying. How do we do it? How do we find it? We have to have this carve-out or this sort of remedial training or whatever it is, there are funds like mind that have just been able to do it and we're making a lot of money from doing it i. mean there's research that shows trillions of dollars is being left on the table by not investing in more founders of color like why isn't that economic argument working if nothing else? I mean we see the same thing with gender right I have been on NPR I've been on these shows a lot to talk about gender and race over the years, and we saw a lot of these same things after me to where you know, there's massive economic arguments right? There's only really two schools of thought you either fundamentally believe that only white men are capable of greatness, which is a really thought that I hope you're very quiet about or you're leaving money on the table, and there's not really another. There's not really another option, and and so I think. Think when people realize that, and when people except that, they say oh, I'm leaving money on the table. And by the way the job of venture capital is not to invest in a museum founders.

"My reason in the end is simple. I believe the morals. How do you say that? What suasion Suasion Suasion Suasion? The moral suasion to forgive often places the individual in an unnatural position and produces enter division that gets diverted into other often-hostile self negating behaviors. That does not mean. The forgiveness is unwarranted in given situations nor that it is not yield wounds an means only that I reject forgiveness a blanket. Rule spiritual imperative ethical necessity. That's so liberating I think so. Many people are going to benefit from that. Just because God you know I just. All of us are just sick of feeling guilty. Because we haven't forgiven. Somebody is hurt us and so on top of someone hurting us. We're compounding that pain by beating ourselves up for the fact that we haven't achieved some miraculous state of letting go of that anger in the time. Line that some of these people are recommending that we do. I think what you wrote is actually very sweet very Christian thing. I think I think it's a beautiful thing not a Christian. You're definitely statements. But but it's a very sweet thing. We have to take it easy on ourselves. Yeah and I think we also have to reject being handed down definitions about what is and isn't real to us. I think too many of us have grown up being told for example you too sensitive. What does that even mean you know in my world being too sensitive is good as being positive every artist every inventor everybody whoever led a revolution was too sensitive. So I don't see that as something that needs to be fixed and I think we have permitted ourselves to be persuaded that things in US need fixing that. Maybe don't need fixing. Maybe what we need is to be in a different neighborhood and I just want people to feel that that full range of options is open to them. Mitch thank you so much for the time I love chatting with you.

While come back to the it is so great to see you how you doing. I'm doing good. I'm doing good. Today was a mother because like everybody else on earth. I'm adjusting to the new reality that we're in and I've been lucky but it goes day by day. Today was a tough day. And we got to be frank about this. You know people in this culture who are regarded as thought leaders and spirituality have to drop the mask and talk about the ways that they're vulnerable and suffering and sad and this was a motherfucker day for me. I'm feeling better seeing you and thank you. I hope your listeners are feeling good. I mean I know that people are going through a lot of trauma and some days. It's okay and some days it's tough and we're all living with a big question. Mark Man I know you mean it's like there's this I think that's one of the. I'm sure you experienced this a lot. You can find yourself being shoved in to some horrific cubbyhole. If you're not careful where people yeah they want you to be. They want you to be perfect. They want you to be not you know they want you to demonstrate all of their like superego all the qualities that are superego. They WanNA project that on you and for you to demonstrate and if you don't you know they get severely disappointed in you you know and I like I do feel like especially European your voice what I love about. It is it's realism. What I love about is how pragmatic you are when you talk about these very big ideas and I think people. It's good for people to hear that because the last thing anybody needs right now someone pretending they're doing great and there's somehow adapting to a global endemic when inside the incomplete fucking nuts because that is that's to me. I can't think of anything more malevolent than putting that out there in the world. Oh no I'm doing great went inside. You're losing your ship right and a great many people and I know because I've seen the sausage is being made a great many people who were regarded as thought leaders in the spiritual culture on any given day any given Tuesday when there's a pandemic when there's not a tragedy. They fall to pieces just with regular everyday anxiety and we have to get past this theater. That people are permitted to project in front of their congregations or one of their audiences. I feel it's very important that I show vulnerability to anybody who wants to pick up one of my books. Anybody who wants to listen to me on any topic. Not because I wanted to be morbidly self disclosing because on perpetuating a why if I indicate to any listener or anybody that I need that somehow I'm the man with the plan and then all these spirit ideas are just making everything great for me. I'm a seeker and I have my successes. Have my failures in terms of trying to lead a powerful and self directed existence? But I do find that. There's so much atra calorie with therapists with ministers with spiritual authors and. We don't have time for theatricality anymore in our world I also I mean I call out therapists to the therapist. The minister the spiritual leader people like me. You know talk on podcasts. Were all engaged in this kind of theater because we're showing our best selves comfortable in public. And whenever I hear a friend coming to me and says you know my shrink says I should do this. My shrink says I should do that. My question is is your shrink doing that. Is Your shrink demonstrating that in his or her lived experienced. Of course not of course not you know we all are sort of operating from the same place and I think we need to start thinking in terms of one another as co seekers. There should be mutual respect but his Co. seekers because you've had the experience of interviewing dozens upon dozens of people who regard as thought leaders motivational leaders therapeutic voices and. I'm sure you've had the same experience where you know you catch one of these guys getting cut off in traffic or waiter getting their order wrong or their French fries coming. Not well done enough and they freak out you know and I can't wait. Let me tell you once. This is the opposite. I was so I was like I got cut off in traffic. I swear to God Mitch is so funny. You say that I cut someone off in traffic and traffic. I was in a hurry and I cut someone off was it. They don't know why I was. I was being a Dick and traffic so I get later that day.

S. government and the Boston Marathon bombing obviously we all know April fifteenth two thousand and thirteen this happened your first book on this came out in twenty seventeen called maximum harm here's my question for you on the book you've gone Hollywood between twenty seventeen and now you've been wildly successful you've got a series on TV that's been picked up again you got another series in production why is this one stick in your Craw so much that even though you had so much success you still got to keep working on this thing we don't funny I tell the story all the time about how the family things you're rich when you put out a book and like the Christmas list gets bigger but I don't next them harm for five thousand dollars and re publish it for one reason and one reason only it's because I think we deserve the answers and somebody who is standing at ground zero you know I was in please bureau chief for nine eleven I had a front page that day on the New York Daily News it was burning all of lower Manhattan it's a day I will never forget I lost a lot of friends among the three hundred and forty three firefighters and twenty three and might be detox and thirty seven Port Authority police officers in the in the hundreds more that have died of the droga illness which nobody ever talks about even as we talk about clone of ours you know I think that we are deserving of answers to this day he be there people tend to give all the still haven't been brought to justice there are still how would classified records about the Saudi connection to nine eleven and I feel like we keep I actually read the nine eleven commission report and if anyone else reddit or anybody in Congress read it or any of our lawmakers took it seriously the marathon bombing whenever it happens and I think that we are deserving of the real answer is there are some very glaring questions that you and I talked about before number one the government said in court records they said during the night trial that they don't believe the brothers built the bombs they don't have any physical evidence linking them to the building of the bombs which raises the immediate question then who the hell did it and why are we looking for that person and then you turn to Topsfield Massachusetts fifty five days after the Boston Marathon bombing and you find out about this wacky doodle named Daniel Morley who told his mother he had something he had to answer to god for his mother told the top feel PD that he was friends with him on the night of October when the police bomb squad Topsfield PD they do a great job securing the scene they got permission to search the home all the time the FBI showed up I know where nobody who called the feed which is a quote that one status as one other that night and next thing you know despite the fact that nearly every component to the pressure cooker bomb that was detonated seven years ago was found in the kids back from the FBI thinks and take over the case and where do anymore we now well the last time I saw that cute he was driving for the ride when his original charge was beating up his mother and her elderly computing how does that make sense have your guy that had all of that stuff and it's it's never prosecuted have you ever talked to him I tried to get Bruce gellerman his good friend of mine W. B. O. R. talk about unlikely alliances but it we found out where he was living in move in Massachusetts and we went there and he literally had one of the ride vehicles that we pay for a factor and he landed on a slow speed chase R. N. he wouldn't get out of the card wouldn't talk to us you know I went to the hospital it's in the box to see more I want to talk to a hospital where he was being assessed the two years because you know anybody who had any experience with the amount of mental illness and trying to get help for that two years in a mental institution no one can tell to pay for that again I'm Ali but I went in there and I asked him to have faith in the the big gambling you know how good a guy as a Guinea did you build the bombs anytime in smirked at me and turn around walk away let me here we need to build the bomb would depend upon what he's talking about the alarm he was not at all but you know how this goes it's critics of yours make fear rolling their rising they're going all there goes makes me again often some crazy conspiracy theory and make it much more out of it that is already there is this just conspiracy theory talk well I think you'll see you know my friend Jim Sullivan over the market just in the story and he asked me that same question there's not one thing and that book VV that's not annotated this is all court records this is all interview notes if the inspector general Horowitz report is the mass media report it is you know shouldn't through both of his child every single solitary day every single day my my routine is to wake up look at pacer if you have any new filings in his case we both know that this case is so expensive that they steal the cost that we have already paid for the first two trials and now the field the costs of his appeal I mean this is become a boondoggle and I think the world deserving of the answers I challenge anyone they can treat me right now any question that they have about the book and I will point you can go to my Facebook page you know I will point to the evidence I have the support any questions that you have and DB you know I have pictures of every single piece of evidence that was taken out again I'm always house I have him on the night of a file which you know Magnus are provided to people while ago talking about this inexplicable state department document that has camel and when he was sixteen years old come into the country and I had another completely different dude on the same identical document where the same identical shirts and the state department either the scanning failure but declined to explain how that giving failure might have happened there's just a lot of money of the questions that I think we deserving of those dancers the most important question I think is what you know you have an FBI agent who interviewed him on but I've been a whole family in twenty eleven after the Russians warned us that he was becoming radicalized you're telling me that that the I. agent just as a reporter you're telling me that the pension from out of town when in your heart you don't recognize the guy you really buy that the new book is called may have Michelle makes the our good friend is the author of if you like maximum arm you're gonna like may I'm one of the exits it Michelle is I looked you've never been

"Officers from like the French and Spanish armies into his army and it was because he needed that culture that military culture. He needed into transplant. It over And he did it and it moved which is you know just I would say like super spectacular? Well then it makes me think that you who are unique in that you live and work and operate in a world of hyper growth. which is something that did not exist even at the beginning of my career certainly not at the scale L. Does and and in fact you live in the the epicenter of these companies that that might hire hundreds and even thousands of people in the space of a few months in that case? What do you do about culture? Well I think that that is really hard and I think that it means things that on boarding orientation and like how hard you push and move. The culture has to be much more intense. Because you're exactly onto the right thing. which is when people come into company? They bring whatever culture they have with them. And if you don't systematically medically assimilate them into your culture you're going to simulate into their culture and the higher and the organization. They are the more kind of pronounce that is. I think inky and this is why I'll tell you when I work. CEO's I say like stopped talking to me about your hiring pipeline and like how many resumes you have and like Mike. How many interviews? I don't care I want to know about your on boarding integration pipeline. Like what is that like. Like how do people get trained when they get the job. Do you have a plan to to train them. Before you put out that wreck like these things that ended up mattering much more culturally and then like how. Are you communicating your culture and like what is their first day. Look like You know I think people don't think about it through that Lens enough but that's that's the right lines what is it what does it mean to come into your company. And how did they. How does a new play a believe after depth themselves into so getting very prescriptive and pragmatic for a second before we end here? What sort sort of three or four tips do you give your portfolio? CEO's and other many people who ask your advice as they set forth in in higher. I won't let somebody sign their offer letter unless they've read our culture document and signed it and said I agree that I'm going to follow this culture. Then when they come come in I new employee orientation. It's me and I'm teaching. Why we have a culture and what it means and exactly how it's defined and why care about it and so like setting the tone like day one is really really really important And then it also helps me see when people are off culture and enforce is it So that that kind of went but like it's very one of the reasons I wrote the book and they the reason I wrote the book in the way I did is there's not ABC's of culture like like there's not like here's the three things to have a good corporate culture that doesn't work you have to understand the gestalt of what culture is and how it works how moves and How it backfires backfires on you and bites you and gets weaponized and all these things And then you can start to say okay. How can I apply some techniques to my situation so that I can move culture in the right direction it makes me think about you? Know I've been here ban about a year and my first day of my first week I went into a leadership should meeting sat down. I did what I do when leadership meetings my past employer and afterwards you know my boss pulled me aside and he said Hey. You're on your cell phone in that meeting. We don't do that here. It was one sentence that he said to me. It humiliated me but he did. It privately never pulled out my cellphone again also understood immediately the culture it has it has it was the on ramp to how to work here. That's amazing and you know I 'cause everybody wants to work working in violent. Where like when I'm with you like your president? I'm present but like one person isn't present and then like that's contagious. And so it's a great thing. Well thank you so much. This is really great suggestion. That was ben Horowitz a founder. The firm and recent Horowitz and I keep thinking about the distinction. He drew between being honest and being liked how we say. We want to be honest but maybe what we want even more to be liked.

Would it be a great story. It's a great cultural story because it's the poorest kids with nothing and not even the support of the R&B is like so nobody would play it on the radio MTV when planning the videos. It's nothing just like Ralph. mcdaniels story is so unbelievable how he decided to start video music box and then once you had video music box like yet all the videos goes on and like he's running around.

"You by Delta Delta flies to three hundred cities that's three hundred cities where people sing in the car three hundred cities where people miss someone one in one of the other two hundred ninety nine cities in Delta isn't flying those three hundred cities merely to bring us together but to show us. We're not that far apart in the first place. This Delta keep climbing from the editorial team at Lincoln I'm Jessi Hempel and this is hello Monday a show show about the changing nature of work and how that work is changing us so in my first week of work here at Linden my boss. Dan called me out. It was kind of embarrassing. We were coming out of a meeting where I'd been scrolling through my cell phone. I hadn't really thought that much about it. I did it all the time at my last job but Dan pulled me aside and he said we don't look at our smartphones during meetings here. Sure enough I began to look around and smartphones where all turned off in mostly hidden from view. Dan's Correction Shen was one of the many small actions that pile up to determine a company's culture and the culture is key to how we get things done at work at Lincoln everywhere else when a culture works works. But how about when it doesn't like when an office feels downright toxic. Can you change how you expect. People work together to move the culture. You can't dictate the culture. That's been Horowitz. He's a venture capitalist who had a ton of experience with this. He's helped build several several companies including the VC firm. In recent Horowitz that he now runs with Marc Andreessen and he's been investing in and advising companies for more than a decade Benz a bit of a management guru amongst startup founders Silicon Valley. They often references theory that companies need different kinds of leaders when they're facing threats as opposed to win business. Good call it. The wartime peacetime theory. His latest book is called. What you do is who you're how to create your business culture? Here's been you know people people been always say it's sort of an accepted platitude well everything has to do with culture. What does that mean? What is culture exactly day? Yeah so you know I. I love the way of the warrior. The kind of the Code of the Samurai says which is culture is not a set of leafs. It's a set of actions and that really gets into it because in a company it's all these things it's like. Well your employees like they got a phone call. Are they going to return it like in five minutes in an hour the next week. Never you know as ghosting people. Okay is showing up to a meeting on time the thing or is it twenty minutes late all these things and they're not in the mission statement they're not in the okay ours they're not in the KPI's they're not anything that you kind of directly manage and then you know you can tell. Yeah well like are they living the cultural values in their performance review. Well like how do you really know that like you know. You don't know if they return that phone call but it's those behaviors that that's how the company any feels to work. You know that's what feels like to work there. That's what it is like to do business with the imprint on the world. And so like how do you have a say in what that is is Turns out to be a really complicated question. And it's not really clear to me the degree to which you can even have a hand in prescribing. The culture maybe you can drive it to some degree but to what degree can a leader actually determine it so that's a great thing and you know my friend. Steve Stoute who does a lot of like like cultural marketing. He always uses term move culture. And I think that's the right term like how do you move culture and like how do you move in a direction. Because that's what you end up doing doing and I think that's absolutely possible and yeah you can't get it like comprehensive everybody's on culture all the time like you know we never have cultural misstep like nobody. It has like they might say they have it. But that's because they don't know what's going on their own organization. There's no way but there are ways to move it. I'll give you like a a small example there. We do kind of add entries Harvard so we have this cultural idea which by the way the idea is one that I think every venture capital firm has which is we really really wanNA respect entrepreneurs in the entrepreneurial process and it's like okay that's very easy to say because our business depends on them but the way the business works is they come to us and ask for money so think about that dynamic like you're sitting there and like I got the money you want the money so that makes me the big important person in you the little person asking for my money right like that's just how it feels to everybody and so as a result I would say. Most firms are very disrespectful respectful of entrepreneurs and you can see it. They show up like a half hour late to meetings. They you know they're just flipping with them. They you know. They speak to them and disrespectful manner. They don't get back back to them if they reject them they never they just go see them. It's like Oh you came in pitch me and I like and then I'm Never GonNa talk to you again and so all that goes on all the time I'm I'm so we didn't want that and I knew that saying it won't do anything so we kind of started with. Okay if you're late to meeting with an entrepreneur it's it's ten dollars a minute and I don't care if you like had to go. Oh you had to go to the bathroom. Five minutes late fifty dollars. I don't care you had important business. Call Ten it's like one hundred dollars. I don't care how important business call wasn't people go. Why like been why in the hell do I have to pay to work here like I'm doing? I'm doing business. I'm going to the bathroom. Human being like GonNa lay off and I'm like you need to plan when you go to the bathroom and you need to plan because if it was your wedding you'd be on time like you. You have to have that kind of respect for what they're doing it's very important. It's very hard to build a business and if you don't understand that then you can't work there and that story in the fact that they're reminded that story every single time they show up to meeting. That's what moves culture not the value on the wall. So an example that you cited sighted new book was Marissa Mayer. When she got your who and I it's been years and I bet most people still remember this even if you don't work in tech? Yeah one of the things that she did early on as she said okay. You have to come in no more working from home. I don't care what your circumstances are. You gotTA show up. Yeah Yeah Yeah. People really threw her under the bus for that crazy hunter. Why why online stuff whose brutal? Yes ally something like that and you would argue when you did argue in your book that that was pretty important at that moment for what she was doing with Yahoos culture. Oh yes look Yahu for whatever you think strategically anything else. People literally weren't coming to work on like so it had gone to that point. Where so there's there's a point in any culture where very dangerous to get to where people are rewarded more for not caring than for carrying and people who are who care then punished and so if you worked at Yahoo at that time and you came to work and you work your butt off? It won't make any difference you know like you couldn't get a decision. Made things went happened. You couldn't move the company forward. It was just a big bureaucracy. That can't do anything to the point where people figure that out. And they don't even come to work and they kept getting paid and they kept getting promoted. They kept getting like salary increases and all that stuff so that was as a culture she was dealing with and look that culture is more common than you might think in companies because as soon as the company gets bureaucratic that just like it starts rewarding not it carrying and so she had to make people Carrigan and and she knew she was right because she looked at the VPN loggins and like the People Busse said they were working for home. We're actually working from home. They weren't connecting. They didn't even have access to you. Know whatever the source code or anything like there's no way they were doing any work so she was like okay. We're GONNA change the culture right now. Everybody comes to work you know. Come to work you're fired and people like Oh that's it did a unlike maybe maybe in the context of the world not allowing work from home you know might have been too cruel and harsh but I yeah who is exactly the right cultural move and you know and like by most accounts. If if you talk to people who worked at Yahoo she did move the culture in the right direction on that now like didn't work out and there's a lot more that goes into companies success and just culture sure but I give her credit for that for sure so you bring up something that we all know to be true. which is that a lot of corporate cultures they can can introduce a heck of a lot of drag bureaucracy? Culture can kind of flat line. I understand that. Maybe there's something you can do about it in a leadership position Russian. What if you work at a place like that I I would say this is the one thing that as a leader like a lot of times leaders will know things? There'll be problems in the company. Vinny del De prioritize them. You know they will need fixing but it won't be the most important thing to fix and so it'll go and so you know sometimes as an an employee like pointing out something that the leader already knows isn't that productive But on cultural issues it's been my observation that the leader rarely knows that the culture has gone on adrift because they're not living in it in the same way that an employee is so I think that raising the issue but being very specific about it is important important so like a lot of times our culture is messed up. Our culture is like laser culture is toxic. But that doesn't get to the thing you have to actually get two okay. Why are you saying that and if you do that and the leader is good enough? And hopefully they've got the skills and cultural skills are hard then you can at least make a contribution on getting it back to where it needs to go. I do think that everybody's behavior the the other thing. Is You know particularly if the company is small. Aw You know. The culture of the even the kind of individual contributor leader employees tends to tends Sabih very infectious. And it's why you love people who come in you know who you can hire who are just generally like positive of an energetic because that's infectious and people who are negative all the time they're infectious and so You know the more you can bring your Kinda the best actions and cultural self to work that. That's super helpful. Always so you talk about honesty in your book. That's tricky. Because you want to be an honest person. Yeah sometimes people don't WanNa hear the whole truth right. Yeah No. I think that it's it's more like ability. You Know I. I think because I kind of comes into people's mind and oftentimes you know if you want somebody like you. You tell them what they wanna hear and what they wanNA hear. EAR MAY NOT BE. The truth. Often isn't the truth. And particularly if you're the leader of an organization It's very frequent that like people people don't WanNa hear the.

So Michael Horowitz went before the Senate and testified and I I just WANNA play you the alternative universe that the left and the press but I repeat myself are living in. I just want to show you the two worlds layup right next to one another. I hear David Muir at ABC open to show with this lead now to the battle on Capitol Hill tonight over the report of the Russia investigation determine no deep state no spying on the trump campaign the author of that report the Inspector General. Michael Horowitz saying the launch of the Russia investigation was in fact justified defied years that's ABC. Lee Did get into some of the malfeasance and things like this but here is Harwood's being questioned I by Patrick Lead Democrat. And then I think by Lindsey Graham Republican that you found no evidence. The the investigation was motivated by anti-trump or political bias. Is that correct. We found no evidence at the initiation of the investigation was motivated by political bias. Yes it gets murkier. The question gets more challenging. Senator when you get to the FIFA and when you get to the other when you get to the attorney's actions for example in connection action with Pfizer. And why did they have a duty to report to their supervisors and eventually to the court. It's Tori information absolutely. They did not they they did not why that's the question.

Horowitz Michael Horowitz recommended that he be prosecuted and every time he goes on DVD vindicated. I'm looking at this. I'm vindicated. I'm I just think like wait. They just said you should be arrested. They just said you were dangerous. They just said you were insubordinate. I'm vindicated so here. Let us see if he's vindicated. Here is what he he said about the Pfizer process. Now remember. This is the process where they got the warrant to spy on Americans on Carter page they said was Russian inspire who they knew was spying for us against the Russians they. This is how the Pfizer process how they got the warrant to spy on Americans. Here's Kobe talking about that beforehand. Total confidence the FIS process was followed and that the entire case was handling thoughtful responsible way by DOJ and the FBI. I think the notion that Pfizer.

"Andrew Klavan show they also say you can't see Thompson more babies it's so wonderful to see in. This is been a really amazing week and a lot of ways. It's been full of so much misconduct and dishonesty and yet it's Kinda hopeful at the same time. The Democrats truly have disgraced themselves pushing forward with their impeachment charade. In spite of the fact their hearings have turned up. Not a single crime in the public is clearly rejecting the entire scheme and at the same time the media once again through its integrity on the barbed wire to attempt to distort and in disguise the massively damning truth of the Horowitz report which revealing the outlandish misuse of power by the Obama administration's f. b. i. also revealed the outlandish deceptiveness deceptiveness of the mainstream press. That covered up for watching the Democrats behaving the way that has genuinely harmful to the country and watching the press not only lie about their actions. Live up the fact that they lied about their actions before it would be easy to lose. Hope it'll be easy to say that were so infested with freedom haters and they're so protected by the media's cloud of mendacity no good can come of it and yet you can't help getting the feeling that good maybe coming from it that the public is getting wise that the narrative is turning toward the truth. and that as with Rudy Giuliani's male T.. In New York and Ronald Reagan's American Presidency the sheer success of trump's pro American enterprise is slowly slowly overcoming the widespread power of the left empire of lies as I've often said conservatives like doctors are a noble but tragic business business. We're trying to conserve a living thing American liberty and like all living things liberty will one day die but not today today we have coming up on two hundred new constitution loving judges in the federal courts we have an attorney general who will withstand criticism to protect our civil liberties from a rampaging deep state today. A our fellow citizens of every color jobs to give them support dignity and the economy destroying Socialists and climate hysterics are largely powerless. Today we have a president in who moved to protect our fellow citizens were Jews who were always the canaries. In the coal mine of oppression. And every day conservative conservatism wins everyday liberty lives. Another child is born. Free another life is completed and freedom. And we're all of US handed another chance to keep the republic going for yet another day more with a sense of tragedy in the sense of humor and just enough courage to get by. It really is amazing. How much shenanigans we can endure and how much good we can accomplish? Personally I'm grateful to be even a small part of the fight. I'm grateful I wasn't born in chains. I'm grateful that every time in my life the West is attempted suicide. We held the gun to our head pulled the trigger and missed go figure the left has done. Its worst this week and has been exposed for having done even worse before now and yet here we are and it's a a good day to be free. I'm going to show you the alternative universe. The press is living in compared to the reality that was exposed this week. But I I am going to tell you about express VPN. I had this running on my computer right at this very minute. I have it running all the time you don't even notice it's there and yet it protects your information online so you don't get hacked getting hacked sucks. It sucks to have people take information whether they use to feed adds to you or use it for for more nefarious purposes. You need protection at the daily wire. We invest thousands of dollars in cybersecurity. Because we're regular target of attacks but as an individual Internet it user you don't need an IT department to protect you all you need is expressed vpn and you might be thinking that security threats don't affect you personally but that's the wrong way to think about it not using express.

"Yeah Yeah Yeah right exactly. And at the same time you're told to verify things for yourself Elf and yet the trick that religions always uses comeback. When you verified the same thing that I've found and if you don't go back out there and wander in the desert but the Hebrews Fuck yes yes fair fucking vacation matches what is in these scriptures than you are one of us until they until then you're wandering let me tell you a contemporary story about a spiritual teacher and I want to hear what you think about this and and be blunt you know because I wrestled with this for a long time when I was stuck in this wrestling match? I went to a friend of mine. who was a direct student of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi who brought transcendental meditation here to the West and this friend who had worked for many years with the Maharishi was just an incredibly effective person? I mean he was nuclear nuclear powered he would say you know. I'm going to arrange a benefit concert for the Maharishi and Ringo Starr is going to be there. And Paul McCartney is going to be there and Jerry Seinfeld is GonNa be there and I'll be like yeah right and eleven weeks later. He sending me a fucking ticket to the concert. He was just that kind of guy who was so capable and so Just effective in the world and I said to him one time in private. Listen man you gotTa level with me. You are the most effective person I ever met. What did the Maharishi teach you spill spill it? Let's hear it. I want the house recipe. Because I'm looking at you and Dan. You're just dynamic beyond most anyone I've ever met and he said to me well. He taught me this. And you can find this in the bag of Gita to he. He taught me that you should work. Work Work your very best on. Whatever you're applying yourself to and then wash your hands of it? Just forget it. You don't get attached to to the to the fruits work work work be meticulous. Be Great but don't get attached to the fruits and I said to him. I dig what you're saying. I dig what you're saying but if you organized a benefit concert for example you want that room to be full. You don't want fucking Paul McCartney to walk out on stage it'd be looking at empty rose after. I know that that would be mortifying. And he's like that's true and I was like. So how do I square this circle and we talked a little bit more about it and for me. Duncan I got to be frank with you. I could never square that circle. Yeah went back to the GITA. I read the original. I understand the ethic of the teaching and as a seeker in the twenty th century that teaching places me BEF- before torturous contradiction like the lady with the Ice Sculpture. Why shouldn't you want constituency for ice sculpture? So I wanted to kind of pass that too. Okay well I think. Probably what he's referring to in the buggy data is you have a right to your action. You do not have a right to the fruits of your act right on so but then to me. What's fascinating about the fuck of Gita is is what you have? There is weirdly a mirror of Buddhism except where Saddam Automa- decides to go from the palace out into the forest. Krishna Tells Arjun enough. What are you doing? That's not the right way. 'cause Argentas drops his bow. Yeah I'M NOT GONNA fight enunciate and spill the blood of our teachers and you would expect it. I think looking at Hinduism Commute. Expect the crash will be like yes. Go into the woods give it all up forget the whole thing like oh you speak words you speak like you speak wisdom wisdom but you do not understand and this is the beginning and also the best verse. The line is smiling in the midst of these two armies. Yeah the Holy Shit. That's a really that is like death metal filing in the midst of the U. Armies that there's about to be literally be intestines everywhere everywhere right smiling in the midst the divine personality of God had said it. So that's an amazing thing and then the invitation is to fucking fight because you're a warrior your Shatra which fits into your caste system. This is you are right to fight what you do right. And the reason you're fighting is because is there already dead. I've already eaten them up. Yeah so somewhere within now I think the way to square that circle is. There's an admonishment. Not because he wanted to be a renunciation but because he was being a coward and pretending he wasn't he was imagining that he was like in some way or another being heroic oik and brave spiritual by Baz in the most extreme way he didn't WanNa kill but that's who he was and it's the worst thing you could do and yet God is saying no this is is your thing but then also saying on one level. It's you killing on another level. You're just one of my teeth chopping away at time and for you. To resist is is to resist the reality of that. You really don't have much to do with anything at all now. That doesn't mean that you don't get to be who you are. It's just don't fool yourself into thinking the way you are as -sarily coming from you so to speak It's an ex flowering of a greater truth in the form form of you. so that's why the bog. It is fascinating to me that it it isn't like going living with your enunciates it's like no you're warriors fight with Krishna would have said to sit artha Europe rinse right. Now's Arthur didn't know what he was necessarily You know I don't know but so to me it's like thank. You have a right to your action. You do not have the right to your roots of your action. If you WANNA be a coward you can take that verse and give yourself an infant excuse to fail without shame to fail L.. Without that sense of like you know what I mean. It's like if I get off stage and I just ate shit. I don't yeah. I worked really hard on a bunch of jokes but because I worked hard on the jokes if I'm driving home with a big weird smile on my face and I'm like well. I worked hard on the job. Left between the YEA bad. Because what I need when I'm driving home for me is the sense of like what the fuck is wrong with me. These people got babysitters. I went onstage with some shit that I thought was funny and it didn't work. Yeah what the fuck. I've got to work harder. I've got to focus more and then that's going to inspire better art so but anyway that's all I'm saying is within these. Prescriptions is beauty a beautiful way to work. It's like you know what I mean when you're purely allowing yourself to just right and boy to act. It's really amazing without thinking to yourself man. I hope that this fucking in book sales in five years then all. That's going to get mixed in with the art right. You are doing the action of the thing itself you really do. Become a pure conduit for the creative creative energy of the universe. That's ever right direction. You do not have a right to the fruits of your action but then if within their year like finding a way to like like I don't know excuse your incompetence or something as a kind of spiritual and there. My man is the Achilles heel of the new age. It's filled filled with people and I apply that term to myself. I don't use new age in a negative way to me. It's therapeutic spirituality that's not an epithet. But the new age is filled with people will who excuse a lack of accountability by offering some variant of. I'm laid back I'm unattached and I reject that I reject thank you. Have you feel as a performer. You owe it to the guy in the third row who's paid for a babysitter or to come out there and do your job. Yeah and I say Bravo to that I say Bravo to that. Our spiritual cultures are alternative. Spiritual cultures are chock full of people people who turn the vice of unaccountability into a virtue of non attachment because they can't water house plan. That's in that must be sir. That is it and that is to me that that is where that is. You know there's something really demonic about that to me because it's like if if you're failing that's good in the sense that it means you put yourself out on a limb. Yeah you try to didn't work you went to the edge and you push which passed the edge and you fail but fuck you failed like congratulations. You get to experience failure when some people don't realize that all their entire life is just failure. They're not trying. Anything really built a nest inside of failure tree. And they're pretending right right right. So if you're like experiencing think failure from Risk Holy Shit congrats. You have gone off the map now. But then don't like when you're when you're experiencing that failure failure. Don't keep failing better own any in any any trick. Anyway that the essence of the thing is I'm I'm allowed to say this because I'm it's a critique of myself in the past I figured out a way to to Imagine Agean that my laziness and cowardice was a revolutionary attitude Because what is easier than to like. Be Sitting sitting in your own metaphysical muck right looking at the wreckage of your life looking at your abject mediocrity right you're obvious mediocrity courtesy within that to imagine yourself you know man none of this stuff last anyway right now just turn my back on the world right right right back back on the world you're deeply invested in the fucking world deeply attached to this nonsense this cynicism crap attitude that your your you've literally we've figured out a way to lay in diarrhea her tenure in a hot tub that is fucked right and that is not a way to be so that that can happen. Oh yeah here's the story. From ten days ago I wrote an article for a spiritual magazine. We made a financial arrangement. They broke the financial arrangement mint and the person with whom I was in touch literally said to me literally said to me. Please have compassion for our accounting department. Isn't that may be the first time in human history those words have ever been uttered and I thought how dare you hide behind an ethic of compassion in a very valid sturdy ethic to excuse a lack of accountability to excuse breaking an agreement to somebody who did a service for you and I thought I can't. I can't cooperate with that. I withhold my cooperation from that. I did break with the magazine Agassi. Actually because I thought it's taking a spiritual ethic and it's turning it into a club to kind of beat somebody with the same way. Some people do that with scripture picture. And that is it's it's taking A violation and turning it into a virtue by way of the trick of language and it's bullshit and we gotta get away from that within our spiritual culture we have. I mean people might be listening saying all right. So you're into aspiration but where's the African that I try to do everything I do with what I consider to be an ethic of nonviolence. Not by which. I don't mean abstaining from legitimate self-defense. But I mean not doing anything that would impede another person's development element of his or her own highest potential so if I break an agreement or if I disclose something that I'd read was private or if I just do something that that that violates violates a responsibility I have to another person I have failed I have agree failed so there isn't ethic in this. I think is very important. Yeah Yeah it's a beautiful. I think probably this ethic is what would you call it. It's called looking truth in the eye. Yes it's truthfulness and reciprocity like I do believe I do believe all of life connected. I do believe that things converge. I do believe these parallel tracks that we all seem to run on converged. Yes and so I do take it very seriously precisely. Call it what you will call it Karma call the golden rule called cosmic. Reciprocity my ethic whether a I excel Aleta whether I fail at it. The ideal that I'm aiming for is one of reciprocity I do believe that's very real because we are connected. Reciprocity I think as I understand your from what I've just some of your writings have really your idea of. Reciprocity definitely does not align with the new age movements general concept of reciprocity so wanna cut. We're GONNA jump to a commercial. We're GONNA come back. And talk about Horowitz. Reciprocity because I've read some You're.

"Welcome back to the DT ETF. H Mitch Horowitz And I swear Mitch Welcome Welcome back. Thank you man. It is really cool. Dad I'm getting to know you you're awesome. You're like Alan Watts meets Alastair croly or something like that and it's pretty cool man and it's a it's a really fantastic mix but my last podcast talk as we did it was about manifestation and we were texting and something that I think we came up with. It'd be fun talk about is how does manifestation fit in to the various eastern stern path. y'All that seemed to contain within them right a deep in the deep importance of being unattached the deep importance of not associating with the the world did the deep importance of not being caught in the updraft. That is materialism yes Buddhism. It seems to the ideas. You can just be sucked into matter like you're in quicksand and go deeper and deeper and deeper in the deeper you get get into the quicksand pit of materialism sure you'll have power and wealth and everything that you might want but you'll never realize you've fallen in love with the Anaconda that is strangling your happiness and so within that. It almost seems like it could be a really valid interpretation of Buddhism to say there is something wrong with desire and fulfilling desires and and that the practice of filling desires in not just Buddhism almost all world religions absolutely so. Is there a way to reconcile these. These things is there a way to reconcile this idea of Non Association non attachment with the delight that comes from from success and from achieving things in the world. Maybe I am misinterpreting Buddhism. What do you think this is a very heavy issue for contemporary Chris Seekers especially in the West although all around the world but I think seekers in the west very often get torn in two by this question because on one the hand whatever path? You're walking. Let's say it's a path of Buddhism. Let's say it's vague path. Or let's say it's Christian Path. Whatever it is eventually you you come face to face with this ethic that you're describing of non attachment non identification not getting caught up in the world of Caesar not trading trading your birthright for a bowl of pottage as our friend e saw that we're told in scripture does and then of course you have? This ethic runs very deeply through variance Arians of Buddhism. Don't get lost in some Sarah and he can feel agonizing at times to the western seeker and then of course people caricature the the opposing extreme usually based in some critique of the secrets a well how can the end point of all spiritual awareness be the manifestation the selection of a Mercedes Benz. And so you know. The Western secrets feels tugged between these two seeming polls the truth it is in my search. I have wrestled with this intensely. I've felt torn apart by it. I have to say very plainly unle in my experience. As a seeker I reject the path of non attachment or non identification. I don't think that path as it sometimes. extrapolated from variants of Buddhism usually Westernized variance of Buddhism. I don't think that suits the needs of the contemporary Seeker Acre. And I don't think it responds to the impulse of the individual to aspire to create to attain and I've been torn in two by this and Dan. I had to make a decision because I wanted to come up with a beautiful poetic holy compromise and I couldn't find that holy. Uh I really have to be frank with you. Couldn't find it yet that you know I to me. I get really bummed out out whenever there's a sense of no you know this is already been figured out exactly. There is no thing you're gonNA figure out the great enlighten one spoke these words in these the way it is. If you're going to change this shit you're fucking everything up. You're just trying to make the the great which is one of the paradoxes that you run into. Not just in in any kind of tradition that has within it. The invitation to focus on the impermanent answer changing the young's but then also has within a kind of dogmatic attachment to some scripture or way of being so I was just listening to this beautiful book. I love it this audio Burkett of lectures Aja gave straight terrified. Theravada teacher he really did say something about the one thing that isn't doesn't change is the Dharma is is these teachings and this is what the Buddha said. This is how we do it. That doesn't change and I found that to be so confusing in the sense that way. I thought the idea idea is that everything changes. Everything is in a constant state of transformation and yet here. You're saying some scriptural rip Cheryl advice or prescription for how to live as a monk or how to be as a lay person is unchanging in the sense that it feels like there can't be so how is this. How do these two things meet your how is it? How do these MEA to me? It seems like not just not a paradoxes. Seems like a mistake a fault asya fault in. I love Buddhism because it's so rational and logical and it invites you to try to find the fault it right and to me. There is a deep fault in any prescription for passage in permanent and yet pay attention to a permanence. It's the way that the scriptures are saying to do it and you know what I'm saying. It's really confused the shit out of me. This is where I've come to and I say this very delicately because I'm I'm only commenting as a twenty first century seeker on eons of tradition that emerges from the eastern near eastern faiths the basic faiths the the Buddhist faith the religions that were born out of the Mediterranean basin Christianity Islam Judaism. I think that Buddhism specifically and I focus on that faith because that is a major your point of search for many thoughtful Westerners today. Yeah I think there's a very important critique to be made of Buddhism it is an which could be made of every religion and it's this I can fall to my knees in front of the Dhammapada. The Betas various commentary and interpretations of them. But it's very important to recall that every religion has been shaped by human hands. They may have been inspired people at the inception exception but every religion is shaped human hands and responds to the social and cultural needs of its geography of its background of its of its nascent culture and when you look at the data and Buddhist worlds as they existed at the time of the inception of these faiths and their canonized ideas parables documents and sayings the individual that was born into the world had as much chance of exiting were expanding beyond his or her cast as designated at birth as they they did setting foot on another planet it was a completely cemented. Stratified solidified society. And that was I think one of the social crises that vedic and Buddhist thought was responding to. You couldn't change identities you couldn't shed your skin. You couldn't exit one cast in favor of another another and if you if you were to do so it was literally the stuff of of a fairy tales. It would be the most extraordinary human exception and Dan to to a degree I think teachings of non attachment and non identification while they definitely possess universal gravity. And I vow Out to it I bow. They were also responding to the circumstances of men and women at a certain time and place and the ethic of Buddhism itself would tell us we we twenty-first-century men and women have to take a look at that if we don't we are just deferring to catechism at a certain point. Wow Oh aw holy shit well that is I. It's it's you wince when you're like Oh God is I said it I I was. I do think that's an interesting thing is it. I have associated the potential for blasphemy with Buddhism. And I'm worried because I want I don't want I don't want to be offensive and I don't want and yet within at least the scriptures that I've read there is a invitation like you need to ask these questions if this is is not right. It's not helping anybody if there's something in this fucked up we've got to look at that and realize why is it fucked up so if this is the. This is what Buddhism is reacting to is the caste system being cemented into a social identity. That you're never going to get out of then I think to myself okay okay. So what is the caste system than we are experiencing today That Buddhism could respond to like what what how are are we cemented into An identity in the West in it does seem like addiction to technology and addiction addiction to kind of kind of thinking like the cat the it seems like here in the West there is a a sad trick that gets played on people which is number one there. You might be a billionaire one day. That's really not going to happen to you. That's a caste system in other words like you probably as I'm saying this I'm thinking fuck that man. Fuck Ebi I'll be one day right right but then also fit if you really think about it. It's like well it's not gonNA work for everybody because there's limited resources so we're only going to get a few billion in years and it's going to be an infinitesimally. Small percentage of the population of the planet. So this is a global caste system that you can look at us like wealth right because of the way we've been indoctrinated here into thinking that achieving these high states of whatever it may be the around with God's yeah the the wealth mansion or whatever because look the indoctrinated is once you get there. You're gonNA feel better man. You're gonNA feel better you move over. They're into that place. You're all that shit year like it's torturing you right young. The answer was obviously mansion. It was just the prescription or fame fame or wealth or sex or a car. The thing and hear what happens is we get it and then sometimes we realize go fuck that thing has created more complexity. I sympathize with that and yet I have to acknowledge. My Path is one of aspiration. It is one of self expression of creativity and hand in glove with aspiration spiratou income some form of accumulation. And I feel in my heart looking back over. Many many years is on the path working with other people observing other people's experience observing my own experience. I honestly don't believe that. The western Seeker Acre will ever be happy unless his or her search has within it some aspect of creativity of self expression of attainment. I think it's in human nature as above so below or as it's put in injured a Christian scripture God created man in his own image. We are creators within this fear and shame on me if I point a finger at my neighbor and say he's got it wrong because he wants to put his name on something. And that's I don't know that that may be a profoundly important act of self realization for that individual. Maybe a profoundly important act of self realization for me and I think that we create an orthodoxy almost in reaction to wanting to push these things away in ourselves and people say to me. Oh great so you know what are you saying. The the whole point of spiritual practices just to accumulate. Not necessarily. I think the point of spiritual practice is to realize in oneself a sense of functioning with ease with creativity with explosiveness with peak peak potential or at least moments of peak a potential and not feeling like we have to disavow seeking a constituency or an audience. I remember I was in a very intensive sensitive esoteric group for many many years and we would have group meetings and it was a deeply serious deeply committed group of people and there was this one woman telling a story one night about how she had created an ice sculpture outside her house and she had some friends coming to visit in the afternoon and the sun was it. Was this kind of a warm winter day sunny winter day and the sun was melting her ice sculpture and she said she was feeling anxious because she wanted her friends to arrive so they could see this beautiful ice sculpture that she created before the sun melted it and she was saying this in these confessional tones and it was being heard that way by this group of very good people listening around her in a circle. But I felt this inner revolt against her story and I wanted to say to her and I didn't find the words until years later you have nothing to confess in the story. You have nothing to apologize for. You create something beautiful. Every artist wants a constituency institue for his or her work. The fact that you want is on the beautiful thing that you did that I can't do to me is entirely natural inasmuch which is a farmer wants his crop to have good yield as much as you know. A poet wants to hit that just right meter on whatever he or she is doing and I. Oh I think we can't we. We can run from anything. We can run from anything but to run from that impulse ourselves. I believe creates terrible tension. I've never felt more relaxed having come to the realization and being able to enunciate the realization. Maybe going back about two years. The mine is the path of aspiration. What was there anything that triggered that realization for you there was? I was divided between two teachers. And when you have two teachers it's like having having to spouses you can never really make it work and apologies told the polygamists out there among your listenership but my impression is that you can't make it work work. I was into the thought of two different modern teachers one. We talked about last time. Never Goddard beautiful mystic from Barbados he lived and worked in America. Died and seventy two never taught. Your imagination is God and your desires are sacred and holy your desires are in essence. The Voice of God. Speaking to you another other teacher also contemporary figure was a man named Vernon Howard who lived and worked until nineteen ninety-two and Vernon like Neville came out of the mind metaphysics tradition but Vernon said as soon as you get attached to the goodies of the world..

"Today in the Red Chair someone I've had in the richer before Ben Horowitz the CO founder of andriessen Horowitz which is one of the most influential venture capital firms in Silicon Valley he's black done I think that having all this capital and moving it to other areas you will have shifted to these other matt and so they can kind of take all of that away and get you your dignity back and make it easy to manage but then they kind of bridge you to other kind of Ucla like the tremendous amounts of money being raised them you know there's a million seed funds there's growth money Softbank with humongous checks for anything so how has your philosophy changed has it or is it the same as when you start it you know it's the same I think the thing about venture capital is the best entrepreneurs only raise money from the best firms or who they perceive to be the best from right so if you're in that category things don't really change range that much just because there's more money coming in in that you know it's the competition among people like us that actually ends up affecting us of you know somebody goes and raises a lot of money but they don't have a reputation that makes them top tier than they don't effectively compete with us right to back then writing the book in the idea of culture because one of the things that's been really important to you you've talked about it for a

companies it's sort of so why do people leave at five and not why does that employ return the phone call that day or next week do you care about the price of that L. or the partnership that you're trying to build and these things are not in the mission statement there night and you're okay ours KPI's or you know any of that kind of thing and so like how do you get people to behave the way you want them to behave when you're not there it's really hard and it gets much more complex as you scale so you know easy you're at twenty people than it is at ten thousand for sure and you know there's just in watching particularly the vast scaling Reid Hoffman would say the Blit Scaling Company he's they lose that kind of cultural continuity or it gets away from them they'll have something in the culture and then it will become some monster that they didn't intend and nobody you know I felt like no CEO's I spoke to really had the tools or the framework for dealing with it and it is kind of you need the gestalt of it you can't start with like here are the three things you need to do to make your culture work like none of that works see you have to kind of get into okay how how does the whole system operate and that that was the idea behind the book and the idea of culture has been a big one in silicon valley the idea that they all think they have cultures they've got it and I can't tell you how many cultures like good handling what is it exactly what are they doing how does it work right how do you know everybody thinks they have it that's a that's a good observation and I think you know like their defense they've done things to put it in place I feel like that's like a weird push I always tell people who go alike we have you know Yoga Vegetarian Food and can boots I'm like well you're just like anti versity that's not a culture that's just like a bunch of perks that guarantee you employees from one kind of background that's all that is right but why is that held the idea that culture is so important so like I'm like other companies over a decade of had it but don't talk about it so incessantly one like Intel was real breakthrough Intel sorta culture for Silicon Valley for many years and it was a breakthrough in business culture the way you did business was very very different in silicon valley starting with them and is like super hierarchical to the point where the culture was so hierarchical that if somebody had an idea who was you know an individual contributor in the organization even command and control well we call it and you know he said like like we're building these breakthrough vic the people designing integrated circuit these some of the smartest people in the world and I I don't care if they're not an executive like we need to listen to them and so he redesigned the entire culture around that and that became the culture of silicon valley of course Silicon Valley forgot why those things were in place over the years a really great example as you know they had this casual dress policy and the reason or it was to kind of basically promote a meritocracy so that if I wasn't wearing like a two thousand dollar suit my I went intimidate you you'd like it won't be clear that my idea one and so that's kind of where it came from I think it's kind of morphed into just like you know whatever where your pajamas that work and so forth yeah I think the bad side effects have not remembering where that came from is that now you've got this casual dress people feel like okay maybe I'm like it's like being at home so Intel set the tone of that and then where did it go next I think evolved like mostly kind of Hewlett Packard also had this had a huge impact on it kind of respect for the individual and the kind of the original organizational design where they had this tremendous autonomy for different groups working on different things but I think the last like really big imprint on it has been google to me and you know and they've they introduced a lot of things that were very interesting kind of pushing it even further in terms of anybody can have any opinion on what they were slash decode there's no writing code or asking your developers for help you connect the apps he used most and Zappia takes it from there it's the easiest way to automate your work support over fifteen hundred business applications so the possibilities are virtually endless our producer Eric has been trying zap here we have so much inbound interest from p.
"horowitz" Discussed on Bill O'Reilly's Free Podcast
"We all know if you follow the news, and I'm sure you do watching me that the inspector general of the Justice department has investigated the FBI to see if the legally spied on the Trump campaign, Michael Horowitz, new months ago, the answer to that question with your holding it now, I can't tell you when has gonna come out. I thought attorney general bar last week implied. It would be out this week. But now that we investigate that a little bit much. Sure, it's going to be out this week. I do know that our which knows what he's gonna tell the world. But here's the real important thing about this story. The Justice department is part of the swamp. Yes, they have new. People new head of the FBI new attorney general bar, but do they really want to destroy the premier investigative agency in the country, the FBI we want to do that. And the answer is no they don't they may have to now Horowitz has got to issue an honest report, but they're trying to figure out how to do. This in meantime, the Democratic Party is trying to destroy bar, the attorney general and Donald Trump even more. So that when the bad news about the FBI spying on the Trump campaign using a bogus warrant comes out. And that's what they're gonna say is, no doubt. They'll say, okay. That Trump and bar are discredited. So most of the American people are not gonna believe this in black lab black. That's what's happening here. Okay. It's frustrating for those of us one know the truth, I can handle the truth as Jack Nicholson, if you pose that question to me, I would say, Jack, I can handle truth. Tell me what happened. I'm an American citizen. I wanna know if my government is corrupt I'll handle it. And I don't care if the corruption is on the Republican side or the Democrats side, I wanna know the dissuade protects itself, and that's why this hold up which is very frustrating thing. I take break. They don't get back with Brett Thomas one of our guests right back recently. I had a great conversation with the CEO of the Hartford gold group Sanford man, he's a true entrepreneur..
