Joe Biden's Potential Running Mate: Who Is Karen Bass?
"Campaign Campaign 2020. 2020. We We don't don't have have long long to to wait wait for for Joe Joe Biden Biden to to announce announce his his running running mate. mate. It's It's expected expected to to happen happen next next week. week. As As the the list list is is narrowed. narrowed. California California Democratic Democratic Congresswoman Karen Bass is considered a key contender. She's 66 chairs the Congressional Black Caucus. We talk about Bass with Washington Post political analyst and data columnist David Beiler, who has continued his Siri's looking at various potential Biden. Runningmate. Karen Bass would be governing choice rather than election choice. You know, she's a representative from California, California is not exactly a swing state so she doesn't have exactly those advantages. But her advantages would really come into play. Actually, when buying is in office so fast is widely known as someone who is a compromiser who sort of an incrementalist, not someone who is necessarily a purist, which really sets with Biden's governing style. He talks a lot about wanting to negotiate and compromise with the Republicans as much as possible. She is the head of the Congressional Black Caucus. On DSO. Dominating paths would be a real nod to multiple different groups that have been important to the buying campaign. There's black women who are the most Democratic demographic group in the country. There are black congressional leaders like Jim Clyburn, who helped revive Biden's campaign when it was really on the ropes in late February of this year. Andi. She's someone who I think you've seen in recent interviews has some instincts that are a little bit Biden esque When asked about the defund the police slogan she sort of did to step that. I think you reminded me. A fine one was to say, I don't like defund the police as a slogan, which is smart because that collection of words does not pull well. At the same time, we're sort of able to say they're these elements of the plans that I support. And those are elements of the plans that her constituents like so she kind of has a lot of stylistic things and a lot of talents and abilities that I think makes her sort of governing pick if you well, you alluded to this about the fact that she's from California, and you're not gonna get a Republican victory in California at least on this level. Is that the one downside to abiding bass ticket or are there others? I think the other downside is that the vetting Been relatively minimal compared to some of the other candidates. Now, Obviously, the buying campaign is doing their own betting with every candidate right now, and you know, putting him through the paces and seeing if there's something going on That they wouldn't want on their ticket. But Bass within the last couple months has come under fire for remarks where she called Fidel Castro commandant and Hef and sort of had a tone that lot of other people. Democrats from Florida in particular did not appreciate so the question with passes. Is there more baggage? When you look at someone like Kamala Harris or Elizabeth Warren? They've already been through the wringer and a presidential primary. Susan Rice has already gone through a Senate confirmation hearing. So the question with bass is also just Is there anything that you don't know that might be harmful, and the answer might be know that by knows everything and that there's nothing else there. But You know, there's some amount of risk in a pick that hasn't been in the public eye so much. David Beiler, political analysts and data columnist for The Washington Post, joining us on Skype.

Big tech CEOs testify before Congress
"So, this hearing just going to say it, it was six hours of chaos. So. So many things like individual moments of pure chaos happened this hearing. But because every member of Congress was only given five minutes to ask the questions in and they moved on, no one could process the moments of cash. So here are some things that happened during this hearing. Jeff. bezos just started eating nuts on his call. That was just a thing that you started snacking for the first ninety minutes. It appears that basis had tech issues was operating in some kind of delay. So we didn't hear from him. They just answer any questions and they'd take a ten minute break Jeff. bezos could fix his computer. Amazing. Jim Jordan, who McKenna pointed out. On the show last week is always sort of chaos element. Try to talk over several members of Congress got yelled to put his mass back on floated. Just elaborate conspiracy theories. was when I say was chaos I. Don't know if there's any other way to describe it. I. Think that led a lot of people to think the hearing itself didn't accomplish its goals, but I think in many ways it did. But Kennedy you WanNa Kinda go through what the committee was trying to accomplish the themes they were pointed at in. How hearing played out, right. So okay. First off. Harkening back to last week I mentioned Jim. Jordan's mountain dew obsession. Definitely drink a handful those throughout the hearing I took notes in screen shots. So, I, called it. But regardless of their pores soda choices, there were a lot of lawmakers who definitely did their homework and I think that was really apparent throughout the entire hearing and when I look at. The picture that they tried to paint I think that became really clear in chairman Sicily's opening statements. So this is the guy who liked. And spearheaded the entire investigation from the beginning, and in those opening statements, he pointed out that yeah Apple Amazon Google facebook. There are different in a lot of ways and they exhibit anticompetitive behaviors potentially allegedly and a lot of different ways. But what they tried to pull together and was a story, and it's really hard to tell a story and five minute fragments. But what happened yesterday was Sicily. Ni, and a lot of the Democrats on the Committee wanted to point out that these companies they become bottlenecks for distribution whether that's information or just like APP stores marketplace's they control what gets distributed in how what was really key to the investigation was how? How they survey competitors. If you have so much control dominance over a market or a specific part of the tech industry, you have a lot of insight into your competitors and you can do a lot of dangerous things with that, and then lastly, after that dominance has gained, it's how they abuse it. Right? How they abuse it to make harder for small businesses in competitors and I think that's exactly what Cellini pointed out in the beginning and I think they did a poor job that storytelling throughout the process. But I think that's also our job. Right is to pull that evidence together and tell that story for them in a way that isn't like. Yes, no yelling at CEOS and like stopping them and I think by getting that in the evidentiary record doing all this questioning, I think they really did achieve their goal in the end. Yeah. I mean, I think the thing that happened sort of next to the hearing was that they released a bunch of documents from these one point, three, million documents of clutch. Over the past year, they released pretty targeted selection documents for every company showing some of this stuff, Casey, I wrote a story about. facebook. INSTAGRAM. My I'm going to frame this email or mark Zuckerberg. Literally one sentence, no period. The Andrew says I need to figure out. I'M GONNA buy instagram like I would love to just be in a place were sending that email like super casually like I got this thing to figure out and it's not like am I gonNa buy the model of the car. It's like instagram. I've been thinking of the text messages where so and so says that Mark Zuckerberg's didn't go destroy mode on instagram ever since they got that up. Case she this to Kevin and right that text was. Yes. Well, it was Kevin. System was talking to an investor and Kevin said to the investor. If we don't sell well, mark, go into destroy mode on us and the investor side probably. Of course, stray casual. So there's just a lot of documents and I think one of the functions of hearing was to get those documents into the official congressional record to make the CEO's account for them. That did not seem very successful to me. Is like a takeaway people should have from this hearing, right? No. I think a lot of people that go into these hearings are expecting like these big Gotcha moments and expecting like a lot of news and all this stuff. But it really, it wasn't oversight hearing. You know it wasn't. They didn't come. They came at this like in a report last earlier this week that they came out at as investigators. They didn't come at it to make a big show horse and pony show out of it, and yet I think the CEO's didn't. The record well enough to the extent that they could have. But there was definitely, I was expecting them to do a lot less evasion and I expected a lot less room probation with the documents, but it's just the process of a Congressional hearing. It's. It's hard to do that in a congressional hearing. But if you put those documents out there, you get the CEO's on the record a little bit who does excite this excites the FTC. J, and that's who can take this next and then it's also congress. You know they can't break up a tech company, but they can regulate going forward and it's those three key themes that I pointed out earlier that they could regulate. You know what I mean. They could legislate to forbid companies from surveying competitors and things like that, and that's where this goes. So the format of the hearing, every member and five minute chunks, it seemed very clear that the Democrats had some sort of coordinated evidentiary strategy, they would start and. And they would say, I, want to read this email to you. What did you mean by this email and then Jeff bezos would say something like I have. No idea is on works. I. Was real pattern that developed was basis really not doing or claiming he definitely knows claiming not really no way Wayne is under the thing they did or they would ask sooner Pichai about the very granular add deal google made by an ad product, and soon I, would say I'll get back to you, which is basically all responses. So the Democrats seemed like they were coordinated to move through their documents. The Republicans seem to be doing something else that also seem coordinated intentional, but what was their focus because that seemed clear split my takeaway from Jim Jordan who? We got into earlier, he he was interviewing. As if they were all Jack Dorsey. And as we talked about like, yeah, he invited Jack Dorsey to testify, but he doesn't sit on the antidote subcommittees. Anything. He says, it just doesn't matter. So it sounded to me as if he prepared questions Jack Dorsey and then it was like, oh, he's not coming I'll ask Tim Cook the same questions. Another completely crazy moment that happened just seen by and five minute chunks is that. Represented Sensenbrenner from Wisconsin Dear Sweet Wisconsin. Definitely. Asked Mark Zuckerberg why the Donald Junior was banned from twitter and mark. Zuckerberg was happening on twitter facebook and there was just like a moment of confused silence, and then he tried to move on and that just sort of floated by in the river of chaos to tell you how much chaos there was kneeling. When you started to tell that story, I thought you were going to tell the story about when Jim Jordan asked him cook if the famous one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, Apple Super Bowl, AD was actually about twenty twenty cancel culture, which is another thing that really happened. I think that's out of context. He didn't ask him. He said clearly, this is. That's definitely what Steve Jobs was thinking IBM is canceled culture and Apple's going to break it with hammer and Jeff. Bezos said that social media is a nuance destruction machine and all this crazy stuff from that. It was a wild will that that particular question when Jim Jordan asked, do you support the cancel culture mov, you could see the CEOS like. 'cause they went in order. He asks them all in order. So First Tim Cook just like basically muttered nothing. Here's like I don't. I support speech whatever. The iphone a keyboard like that was his answer. Sooner per child also, just like muttered, right? He's like Google has always supported free expression Zuckerberg like saw the opportunity and took it and the forces of liberalism I rising I, and then basis was like I cannot. I cannot do in like went for it, and that was just totally insane moment. But it also seems like the Republicans were intentional to try to create their own moments where they were yelling at CEOS about bias on platforms is obviously something cover a. At. You were paying a lot of attention that case you're paying a lot of attention to it. Do you think that was effective in creating because you know there's like a parallel conservative Universe Jim? Jordan was on Tucker. Carlson. Last night like was that effective or d think that the CEO's were able to sort of tamp down on interesting the Tucker Carlson pointed out that Google and other companies are all big donors to Jim Jordan another folks. So that is a weird side, but I think it was actually besides the moment where they mixed up twitter with facebook I. Think this was much more effective off. Off Topic yelling about technology than we usually see like are genuinely issues that like they are upset about that, they could point to largely around like cove nineteen misinformation and they could at least like pick those topics and stick to them rather than kind of asking vague questions about like, why is my phone listening to me? Well, they're definitely asked questions about why are my campaign emails getting filtered by G mail? Yes. I should. I should mention that they have really and they have all of these cases where they ask about extremely specific one off incidents that anyone who has used social media knows happens constantly. And, then turn them into a sinister pattern. But I think they managed to come off as sounding more like they understood what they were talking about the unusual. I think that was a real theme of the hearing, Casey. What did you think of this sort of bias side show that occurred? Well, I mean the the idea that conservative voices are being suppressed is foundational to the conservative movement and is behind the rise of conservative talk radio. It was behind the rise of Fox News. Now that social media exists, we have seen it in this new form, but it is sort of being presented as extra, sinister and worthy of. Some sort of legislative intervention what frustrates me about it is that much more than newspapers or or cable news like Mark Zuckerberg Dorsey. These people benefit hugely from having all possible voices on their platform. None of them is incentivized to drive conservatives off their platform. What they are incentivized to do is have rules that make the place safe and welcoming. So that people want to hang out there and so to the extent that there are issues on the platform, they've largely come because these platforms have rules. And you know you would think that a bunch of free marketeers would realize that the alternative to the system that they're so mad about would be creating a new system, but they don't seem at all interested in doing that. So I just sort of dismissed all of them as charlatans I actually thought it was interesting that the opposite track came up, which was the Stop Hey for profit campaign I kind of wasn't expecting that. The representative Raskin I believe asked facebook. Basically, why aren't you kicking more hate speech off. I forget who else asked like look is the point that you're so big. You don't care about advertiser boycotts I. Mean, you know it will here. Here is a fact that the number one complaint that facebook gets from its users, the thing that users. About. FACEBOOK is that it removes too much content and so if you're running the place, you do have to take these complaints seriously in a way. Right? It might not be you know that you shadow band conservative whatever that even means on social network in twenty twenty. But the fact that you're removing content is really upsetting people. So you can't dismiss that idea entirely, but I still don't feel like we're having that intellectually honest conversation about it. So this was definitely I feel like you can connect the you control distribution. We're GONNA show the abuses of power narrative. We got other. Democrats. With the you control distribution. You're banning conservatives right like I. Think what's Sensenbrenner Again, cups and conservatives are consumers to is that people don't realize that like fifty percent of the population in many ways. But facebook has like famous conservatives working its highest levels Kevin. We last week, we're talking about Kevin Roose keeps sharing the list. List of the most engaged content from crowd tangle. It's all conservative content, and that's so problematic for facebook that they're. They're pushing back with other metrics and graphs of their own, making the facts just aren't there, but it doesn't seem to be convincing. Brett Kevin is being asked to recuse himself from facebook case because he's like best friends with facebook I, AP I wrote a column almost two years ago. Now, arguing that conservatives were trying to redefine. Any conservative identified person having any unwanted outcome on a social network, right? So bias is your name was higher than mine in search results. Bias is used suggested that I follow a Democrat and not a Republican right, and if you take action on your policies that apply to everyone against me a conservative that is biased against conservatives, right. So and by the way I have to say this has been hugely successful because we've talked about it. How many minutes now and the longer that these discussions. Discussions. Go on. They just sort of refi people's minds. The idea that there really is a vast conspiracy to silence conservative speech because he's networks are so big millions of conservatives are having experiences like this every day, and now there is an ideology that is basically a religion for them to attach to, which is although Silicon Valley liberals are out to get. Reason I wanted to talk about the conservative side show, which in many ways was a circus is it feels like the notion that we should be punitive to the companies or mad at the company's. Bipartisan, right we were. We were not looking at a hearing where the Democrats were on the attack. Republicans are saying we love. Apple. We're looking at hearing where they were. Everyone was mad. There are a couple of exceptions to that. There were a couple of I think sensenbrenner and a few other folks were like look we want to be clear. Big is not bad. We just WANNA make sure we're not punishing you for your success, but you were like almost entirely, right? Yeah. I. Mean I. think that's it's important to. To capture that mood like Jeff Bezos Mark Zuckerberg, Tim, Cook soon. Darpa, try they usually get to finish whatever sentence they start saying. Right. They're not used to being interrupted. Their thoughts are usually like you know they get to live in complete sentences and people take them seriously here in five in intervals, they were interrupted almost every time they started speaking to be told that they were wrong that they were filibuster at one point Sicily said stop thinking is for the questions. We can just assume they're all good questions. They. Were getting yelled at and they're going yell that about a variety of things that were pretty specific. So you kind of in your kind of structure here. The first one was controlling distribution. What did you hear as a hearing went on the indicated to that? The committee had a case here? I think the apple's APP store is one thing you know charging thirty percent cuts on certain things is just controlling an APP store. It's the same thing with Amazon's marketplace. They can inherently in control what gets placed and what gets sold and you know if they want to play with search results on Amazon, they can do that, and then on facebook and Google, it's not just like products and software that's information. And it could be information when it's like Google. Google. Stealing yelps, texture views right in putting those in its little info boxes in search queries in facebook if facebook is just like an. Mation, distribution platform and. It can decide Algorithm Mickley. Knowingly. What people get to see this bution was very keen to the committee's hearing yesterday and they pointed out different aspects in which you know each company exhibited that kind of behavior. So the one that will you bring up apple? We wrote about this, say there's much emails. Apples document production is just one hundred and thirty pages of unrelated emails and whatever order see it's like scan through it. So there's a lot of little stories in there. There's one about right to repair and apple realizing it needed to repair. By watching PR people operate by reading their emails journalists. Very entertaining. They're like we had a break like here's our strategy. Here's we're GONNA. That's all in there. You can look at it, but there's a lot about the APP store itself and how they're going to use the mechanics of the APP store to control their platform, and it started at the beginning like the first emails in this production from twenty, ten there. From Phil, Schiller Steve Jobs saying, are we GONNA? Let Amazon Sell Books in the kindle store. Store, it felt like I saw an Amazon ad was hard to watch this hard to watch this ad where a person's reading a book on an iphone in the kindle APP in the pick up an android phone keep reading. He's like literally like it was hard to watch like Schiller's at home like pain what a customer is having an experience that good it really just. Heart and so he's like it was hard to watch. You fours Steve Jobs. They're like we gotta shut it down jobs is the bookstore will be the only bookstore on the APP. Store. That's the way it's going to be everyone's gotta used to it. We know that restricting payments will hurt other things, but that's what we're doing and they started there in two thousand ten and they pulled it out, and then that ladders up into everything that we've seen with, hey, ladders up into the analysis group showing up to. Apple, can pay them to say that there's independent study has revealed. Everybody has a thirty percent cut. It has landed up into Tim Cook, forwarding. He gets a letters from developers that are in this direction. It's like apples breaking my heart and he just like Ford's it. Tim, Cook forwards that email to filter credit eighty, just as thoughts like amazing like they are constantly thinking about the APP store as a mechanism of control for the platform in the leverage and other deals. So the other one was apple is this Amazon one which I have very mixed feelings on saying that this is bad or legal I'm curious for all of your thoughts famously. Did, not have the prime video APP on the Apple TV and all these other places apple, Amazon came to a deal. There's an entire presentation in this production like the slide deck of how the deal is going to work. Apple got to be the preferred seller of its own product. So third parties cancel. Apple. Products, Amazon pages, they got. They have a custom by flow. They've custom product pages, all the stuff in return. Amazon got a lower commission on the APP store and gets to Selatan products which no. No like you can rent a movie from the Amazon APP on the Apple TV, no one else gets to it in one world. This is just pure platform collision, right? Apple cut VIP deal for big companies because it wanted something and you could say this is legal in another world. It's like this is how deals work apple something valuable. Amazon s something valuable and they came to a conclusion wherever made more money and quite frankly the consumer experience platform has got better. How do you read that? Casey? That is good and fair analysis of it. I. Think I did read slightly more scandalous. Tones into it in part because apple would never acknowledge that some developers are more important to it than others even though if you assume that that's true, I think maybe one of the things that's frustrating about it is there is no transparency accountability around which developers get sweetheart deals is that once you hit a certain threshold of revenue will cut your price. Why couldn't they extend that deal to everyone right? Or is it just if we withhold something that seems particularly valuable, we can eventually drag you to the table. Table, which is sort of what seems like happened here. I think in all cases, what I'm always looking for is the accountability, right like and some sense of of equitable treatment of developers and I understand the guys are always going to get the best treatment, but it can that be publicly visible. Can it be acknowledged and there'd be routes for others to achieve that same level of success and treatment, and that I'll just seems missing here. Did you buy Tim Co? He said it twice. It was obviously A. Glimmer, of sympathy for all four CEOS. There is a lot of reporting that they had spent months preparing for this hearing like being grilled there, they'd hire outside law firms. They. Practiced they all clearly had soundbites memorized in none of them. Got To say him because it kept getting interrupted. Tim Cook had this one where he is like if we're the gatekeepers, the gates are open wider than ever. We've gone from five hundred. APPS to one point seven, he said like. A whole speech. and. The thing is there's fierce competition for developers. They don't like our store can do for android the windows. For xbox and PS. Four. Which I was like the idea that adobe is going to be like we don't want to be on the IPAD. Here's PS. Four Photoshop is insanity to me. I'm going to build a spreadsheet. APP. For the five. That's how frustrated with Tim Cook. To that ring. True to you I. Mean, there's no, it does not ring true. There is a, there is a duopoly. In the United States when it comes to smartphones, iphones have majority share in the United States and you can't say, well, you know there's there's a rogue fork of android in Malaysia that you could go develop for if you really wanted to and have that come across as a credible argument to Americans. Right it is. Natural for any monopolist to spend most of its time, arguing that it is much smaller and much less consequential as as you think it is and they're essentially always asking you to ignore what is in front of your face, which is that they are the giant. They are in control. What they say goes, and it doesn't matter which small businesses get hurt along the. The. Way I would point out that the contact and we're gonNA talk about earnings eventually. But the context for that is apple had its biggest third quarter ever this month, their revenues went up eleven percent year over year, they're making obviously making billions of dollars in their services revenue, which is a lot of the narrative around the APP stores increasing that services line. Also went up. I think it was thirteen billion. So you're right. They're very big in their earnings the day after the hearing did nothing. To reduce that impression. I want to switch to Amazon a little bit McKenna. You really focused Amazon was basis first time up there. They came at him a lot about marketplace. How did you think that went I think it went pretty good. I. Think. John Paul specifically was just like killer her questions with breakout star. Yeah. She was just like killer and she's the representative for. SEATTLE. So this is where Amazon is right. So she just like killed it and. And I think there were a couple of instances in the documents and in questioning yesterday that really pulled important things out there was like testimony from one bookseller who was like, yeah. We just can't sell a category of books and we don't know why Amazon doesn't let us do that just like testimony like that or even when it comes to like acquisitions, the ring acquisition especially, I wrote about that today through the documents and how. They said, this is for market position. This is a for technology, your talent or anything. We just bought this and that's something that base said again, yesterday he was just very clear. It's like, yeah, we do buy things market position, which is like so insane just here like the richest person in the world. But like, yeah, we're buying market position. It's just what happens. That's another one I have mixed feelings right, and by the way, people should read McKenna story because those documents have just a very funny breakdown like the pros and cons of buying. Buying ring in many of the cons like what if this turns into nest, which if you're just the verge cast listeners like it's just like the Keyword Bingo, but it's fine to say, we're buying market position like this isn't the best product out there, but it's the category of video. doorbells is not huge, right? So to by the the market leader in video doorbells is maybe the most rational use of the money. What is the problem that you think the committee was trying to show an address sense of we're just going to market position. Pointing out, they can just do whatever they want and how casual it is, and there really isn't. It's really funny to read an email like that, and we could buy it or we could just copy it or are. We could just watch. You know that was one of the emails that base from someone. Those are just three options you know and it's like just pick and choose you know. Pointed out like a lot. Just that email itself really pointed out just how easy it is for them. They used a lot of that time history to talk about copycat behaviors and to talk about just like you know buying up competitors and it just seeing that all in one little e mail having to do with the ring was like really i. think it was really kind of I opening and especially like useful for the committee. So Amazon got hit a lot for the data collection side of it of copying competitors. bezos did not seem to have great answers there. Right. So that's the. The thing they got in trouble with this. There is that Wall Street. Journal article from like April where employees were literally like, yeah. We dip into data and we use that to guide our own private label products and everybody was like Whoa and Amazon basins. Yesterday said, well, we do have a policy that bans that but giant pointed out yesterday. It's like, okay. So what's your enforcement look like you can have the policy, but like if you don't enforce it, then it's like meaningless. And then yesterday I. Think Paul was like, can you give me a yes or no answer? Do you dip into data and he's like I can't I can't give you. Yes or no, and we're just like we're looking into it. The story had anonymous sources. So that isn't very helpful to us. You know what I mean. So that was one of the main things and that Wall Street Journal article and I think it's the same kind of examples in the committee's documents. They point out specific examples like car trunk, organizers of all things. It's like weird little products like Amazon's like this is a little hot. Maybe we should do that. So I, I think. I, think they made a good case yesterday. Yesterday on that. Yeah. I mean bezos brought up that Wall Street Journal, Article himself twice, and he was like, well, your policy against it. But I can't guarantee never happened. Then there is a strange just didn't come across clear I. Think I know what the committee was trying to get at their like US aggregate seller data when there's only three sellers and then only to sellers? Yes, I. Think what they're getting at is when you're down to the aggregate data of two companies, you heard effectively looking at individual data. What is the problem? They're like the I get what you're doing. You're just reducing the denominator to get to one, but like it, why is that particular problem? Right? Well, none of these. Dipping into individual seller data and looking at aggregate data. That's not a legal. There is no law. This is all voluntary of Amazon. So they have a voluntary policy where like we can't do individual seller data, but they say nothing against aggregate and aggregate what you're getting at eight. Here you is. Does the same thing if it's just like some goofy little product they. They bring up pop stock. It's all the time before pop tops in a moment. Right? There's only like one pop. So company like you know pop soggy, it was kind of an innovative product. It's like well, if there's only two of them and use the aggregate data, you you you have everything you need to know you know about that product line looking aggregate. If that's what you decide to qualify as do you as you're looking through the other Amazon documents and other stuff. So anything jump out at you is something the committee was trying to prove or get at. The questioning seemed very focused on. Like are you using the state at a copy products? Are you buying things? You shouldn't buy. There's one question which I did not understand why came up about DMC. Take downs on twitch and Jeff as just had this look of panic in his eyes. He's like I don't know man I bought Wedge because my kids want to. Do something like that was like the side show stuff, but the real focus here, it just seemed like it was definitely in the marketplace, right? Amazon, everyone came at Amazon for the marketplace. That's what everybody knows him as like they have all these little sides. They got rain. They got Alexa Alexa was one thing too. That was kind of interesting. It's like. Are you buying things like ring to put Alexa into and dislike expand your like Titan Ism as like an Internet Internet connected home. Thing and make that more closed off and walled gardening. That was one thing. But no, it was just focusing on how much power they have to kind of change. What happens in the marketplace to kind of decide what companies in what products are able to come up on the first page of results. You know that's also something that they dug into Google and in something that one of those like themes that kind of ties everything together. We should say they all spend a lot of time talking about counterfeit goods, and why is it Amazon removed? Fake stuff from the platform and how much is it profiting off of you know selling pick rolexes? Is it surprising? The whole foods didn't show up at all they're. Like that is a really massive thing. Amazon owns that. Is it moving into a huge new product category? I think whole foods is not an online marketplace, which was the title of the hearing, not that that restricted anybody from doing anything except that, one of the things Amazon says is we have lots of competition from offline marketplaces, right? Brought up kroger a lot I mean, this is the case he's point. They all made. It seem like they were beset at any moment. They could be crushed by the likes of stop and Shop Right? Like I think the point though was really on the. Digital. Experience Consumers have and like I, don't know Ho-. Foods fits. Into that narrative, especially, because it is itself not dominant like they bought it because you needed to grow in their. Good at that at my question for you on the Amazon stuff was when you think about, we talk about two thirty a lot right like you and I in particular spent a lot time to thirty, which regulates with the platform can do with content. There's not really an equivalent of two thirty for goods on store. Right like there's some case is out there saying like you're liable for what what happens on your online store page, but Amazon doesn't have that like second order of like Messi nece around it that twitter and facebook to with two thirty, I. Mean, it gets invoked a lot for marketplace's, but it's way messier. Well, I just wanted to like this question at counterfeits question about ranking the store like they are even more free than any twitter is to to sort tweets algorithm. Algorithm clear to modern like it just their store. Do you think that they're like that Algorithm transparency? Your wire things ranked. Did you catch a sense that that's where the regulation is GonNa go. So much of the conversation around Amazon really felt like it was individuals sellers being wronged for reasons of Amazon being unresponsive or stealing. It's data. So I don't know it didn't. It didn't seem like a really big focus of the hearing, but it is a huge deal. Yeah. The, digital marketplace frame of this, which is where we have talked to. Cellini. That's where he's going right like facebook and Google very digital. They have like they don't do physical goods. Really. Apple is the APP store. It's all digital goods. Amazon is the one where it's. Front to a lot of physical things, and that is the only place where I can see this regulation needing to make some sort of like major meaningful distinction in I. Didn't see it in the hearing, but I was curious of you caught a glimmer of it. I'm not positive that they have to make a huge distinction there like depending on what they come up with because. So much of this is about their companies and whatever product they produced. The issue is more or less whether or not they're being surveilled and unfairly by targeted and crushed by that data surveillance. All right. We have gone for forty minutes. We should take a quick break. I said I wasn't going to go by company and it happens. So we should come back and talk with facebook Ango. We'll be right back. This is advertiser content.

You could download the weeds on apple spotify or wherever else you get your podcasts. Tracy. When it comes to facebook I turn to you. FACEBOOK is patience consumer of startups as what we've learned. Yeah. But you said something to me yesterday was interesting, which is everyone else's problems are forward looking and it feels like facebook's problems are actually in the past break for people explain what you mean. Yeah. So when Congress is looking at any trust with respect to these four companies for three of them, it's It's sort of about the marketplaces that their operating right now with facebook, the question is much more about should we have allowed it to buy serum? Should we have allowed it to buy WHATSAPP and most of the antitrust conversation that was around facebook yesterday was all about that. What did Mark Zuckerberg know about Instagram, and when did he know it? We wrote a story based on some documents that the house released yesterday. In which facebook has clearly identified instagram as a competitor. In at least some ways and wants to go after it and knock it off the table, and so that's kind of where the focuses their facebook and Burke did get a lot of other questions yesterday, but it tended to be much more about content moderation and things that don't have a lot to do with antitrust. So there was weird section where they asked the face. Face Research APP in the novel, Vpn? Any kind of got lost well, explain what happened and I'm curious reactions. Yeah. So facebook has a bunch of nifty tech tools to figure out what's trending which APPs or the kids using, and so that can essentially have an early warning system if it needs to consider acquiring something or more likely in these days, go out clone it. and. So Zuckerberg was asked about the way that the company uses these systems and if they are anti competitive I, think you know traditional antitrust law probably would not say copying an APP feature is anti competitive, but could lobby written in the future about it shirt I. Think the one that caught me was I mean, this is what I'm. McKenna's points from earlier is like one of the themes here is, are you so dominant that you can collect data that's unfair and then use that to crush or killer competitors, and definitely bought the Inaba VPN to do it. That's true. Now, when I've asked executives at facebook about this, what they'll say is they don't get surprised anymore. When you have three point, one billion people using your apps around the world. You know what links they're sharing, you know what they're talking about. And so you're not going to need some kind of specialized tool to know that WHATSAPP is really taking off. Right. So they would argue that, yes, these tools were useful to them, but you know at their scale, they know what's popular now, which doesn't really seem like addresses, the problem is reached. The fact that we're so big that we're all knowing is maybe not the defense that they sometimes presented as so here's what I didn't get. I thought, Zuckerberg I want to the instagram. What's about who's issues, but on the facebook research front, the data front, they him about this APP facebook research, which you were giving to teens. They were deploying with an enterprise certificate that story broke apple revoke the certificate, and all of facebook's internal APPs went dark, and this is a scandal story after story about it, they went on for two days. So I can I, don't recall that APP? Just how he you know, he remembers the day that all facebook's internal APPS went down and people couldn't go to the cafeteria. I would agree I found that answer. Extremely, ed? Persuasive. that. Do you think that was like actually strategic for him to be like, I, don't know and then come back later and correct the record I do remember when that happened I. Mean. I really don't know I mean also you know during a six hour hearing, it's also possible that you just you get flustered or you miss here something or or something because. Yeah. As as you say, I'm sure he remembers the day that apple turned off their internal APPS I mean. Honestly. Seems like an opportunity to talk about apple's market power, and the fact that you know a day of work canceled at facebook because apple got mad. But I think most of the CEO's didn't go into yesterday a wanted to pick fights with each other. It was kind of sad that they didn't. I was Kinda hoping that Tim Cook take a shot at soccer burger. Point that the other two APP platforms I was expecting it. It was there. It was. There was all there. So cellini ended and he ended the whole meeting with closing statement. He said, some of these companies didn't get broken out. They all need to get regulated in the off too much power that some of them I. don't these breaking up apple. What sort of break. Right like. The division get sent into the corner thing about what it's done. Right. Does should spin out the finder team I've always wanted to. A clean is always that they want to. They want the APP store to be separate from the IPHONE. Basically, that's the thing I always hear. Can't break I. Think you can write some strong regulations but not playing you're on store, right. But like Elizabeth Warren's point was it's cleaner if it's two companies, but it's still a gigantic remedy that I don't think there's a lot of like like consumer or public opinion is going to walk into an Apple Cup I think you'll radio at marketplace. It seems very clear that we says some of them she broken up he is talking about facebook. I have a twenty percent conference level. He might be talking with Google and Youtube as well. But if he's going to say some of the need to get broken up like it's facebook, did you hear anything yesterday that supported that conclusion or Saudi stocks I? MEAN HE I don't remember which Republican it was, but he was like the Obama FTC looked at this and they said it was minding love. Obama. Right. Like. Why would we go back in time to relook at I? Mean, there is a belief and I mean. Somebody who thinks there could be a lot of benefit in instagram and WHATSAPP being different companies from facebook. And the reason you ask. So many questions about that acquisition as you're making the case that it never should have been approved in the first place, and so now you need to remedy it. So that was actually like the entire thrust of the argument against facebook yesterday. I think, you could probably make just as good a case that Amazon after spin out aws, but lawmakers chose not to make that case. Yeah. I think that also gets into. Politics of the acquisition of the time. To his credit is like nobody knew instagram would actually be a success like we made it a success. It didn't happen by itself. I, don't know if the lawmakers. By award, these guys said, but I don't know that he actually made that case very persuasively. and. Who knows I mean? That's like anything could have happened. Right? Cram could've stayed independent and rapidly grown and overtaken facebook like that's something that could have happened. It could have kind settled into a middle zone like snapchat or twitter seems more likely to me although I think probably would have been bigger than those two but. You're never going to know I mean it is true that facebook gave Mike and Kevin it instagram enormous resources. A lot of the reasons why Mike and Kevin sold was because running tiny startup that's blowing up is absolutely exhausting Mike. Krieger. was dragging his laptop all around San. Francisco. Because the servers were melting at all times of the day whenever Justin Bieber. Posted like the site stopped working and they really we need help. Finding a person who can quickly fix this? So we don't have to like that is the reason that they were entertaining these offers and wanted to sell it. So that is also thing that happened. Do you think that that same kind of argument or approach can apply to what's up? What's up basically did not come up yesterday and all the focus on Instagram, but that's the other one, right? Yeah, and we know weirdly a lot less about that acquisition I. Think it's because people in America just have so much less love for what's APP generally. That, it's never seemed as important. What happened to WHATSAPP as what happens to instagram even though WHATSAPP, is used, you know way more, it probably has way more engagement even than instagram does so I don't know why that didn't come up as often. We know there was a competitive bidding war for that as well. Goule. Wanted it as well. You know Mark Zuckerberg made them an offer, they can't refuse. Do you think everyday Google's we should've spent more money on what's whatsapp like this could have been solved. Should have, but Google has been placed under an ancient curse that prevents them from ever making the right decision about any social product. So it was doomed never to happen. It's fun looking through the documents and watching them casually say they should buy facebook dot com. Yeah, that. Point. That is how they talk like the window into these executives just casually being like we should just this thing or maybe not, or we should just copied ourselves and kill it before it gets any traction like it's repeated over and over again last facebook question. This one is like harder to parse because I. There's a chance, it's October is just joking around but. But. He's in many of these emails. He's like the thing about startups, as you can always buy them, which I think the committee thinks is a smoking gun, right? Like facebook's entire plan is to buy the competition to get the data from wherever they get it to say, oh, man, this apps popping, we just buy it and kill it before it competes with us. I. Think he actually said at one point. That's a joke. Yes, he did and I believe that you know it was two thousand, twelve, right? He was probably still in his mid twenties. At that point, the company was a lot smaller like people were joking around like there's more loose talk when companies are younger and I do think. It was it was part of that. I think the more interesting question becomes. Let's say facebook is telling the truth about everything. Let's say they thought it was going to be a successful acquisition, but they never knew it was gonna big as it became today and they invested in it and it got super big. Okay. Well, now, it's as big as it is. Should they be allowed to keep? Keep it or should they be forced to spend it out and if you're GONNA force them to spin it out. What's the argument that you'RE GONNA. Make about why one question that I have a lot is clearly the referral they're gonNa make, and it seems like if you don't have some other reason, we've heard hints that there's some other reason, the FTC scrutinize this that will eventually be revealed. But what you're saying is the antitrust standard at the time, the Consumer Hartman stand, which is still our standard. Says, you have to prove prices will go up both products for free. You're screwed. Right? There's nothing to review because you're not gonNA prove prove that free products are gonNA get more expensive. I think it's pretty unfair if you change the standard and you go back in time and say you missed that standard. So I think there has to be something else there. Well, what was the standard by which at and T. was broken up? Right? Like presumably at and T. didn't used to be that big, and then it just got really big and then they broke it up at least. That's the thumbnail understanding I have of that break-up. Well, yeah. But then reformed itself. Right. But because of lax antitrust regulation, right? Like it wasn't a naturally occurring phenomenon that all those APPS got back to the other or was that just sort of like inattention to capitalism It's like in the seventies and eighties. This is Tim moves book the cursive bigness in the seventies and eighties Robert Bork I can't talk about Robert on this podcast. Are we doing this right now. Robert was very influential judge Appellate Judge Federal Appellate? Judge. And basically moved the antitrust law to the consumer harm standard as part of a movement called and economics. A whole thing Robert. Bork. Mostly famous because he was not appointed. He was nominated Supreme Court by Reagan but they leaked video tape rental history, and then he didn't get nominated and that is where the expression getting bork's comes from. This is all true Netflix's still has to abide by videotape data privacy act is a whole. This is all true when facebook and Netflix had some partners, Nansen? Partnership. To. Automatically share your net flicks, watch history to facebook. They're like pending the change of this law which we are working on Robert Bork. He haunts us all. I'm sorry, I can't believe this much. Yeah I. think that's just like the law changed in the in the seventies and eighties, the standard change. The conversation right now is a very much about changing it back months and months ago, pre pandemic, we had an economist from I. Think it was Nyu Thomas Philippon came on the show, and he was like look you have this natural ab test going on in the world where the European Union when it formed was like, how do we get an economy like America's? So, we'll just take their competition policies pretty good, and at the same time we changed consumer harm standard. So everything you're seeing the EU is basically our old competition antitrust standard in. You can see how active they are in everything. Here's a new consumer welfare standard. Whether you believe, this is actually a functional Ab test given. The state of both governments is up for debate, but that was his point I thought. It was spare can say.

And I've never used before so I downloaded the APP for auto and then I'm like all white with Ya. Took like an Allah and she goes. You're such a nice man. And she goes Jim Jefferies. I'm going to have to look you up. Let's just leave the relationship Verdes. You like May I like you. Email that shit to look at each other's history up no no problem. Mission is the key to a good relationship to did. I wonder how young she thought I was like this. Let me call your mother. I have to tell a nice young man. Yeah you're not going to. I'm going to call you and you're like she's she's dead. He's dead but even she wasn't it would be a weird call stri zones that everything I have listen to you on a couple of things lately and you talk about your mom passing and I. It's so funny. Because before I lost a parent I truly. When people talked about their parents have passed? It was a guy who cares. It happens we know it's going to happen. It happens everyone. That's the one thing in life we know that's going to happen and people will talk about like what's the big deal because I didn't have great relationships in my parents and and I lost my father year and a half ago and it really does. I felt change. You on a cellular level makes you realize your own mortality. It also also for me. I found I lost a little bit of my moral compass not that I don morals anything but I remember thinking when I was doing stupid things. Go down while my mom to see this interesting bannon surveillance. Yeah I WANNA listening to these It's always in the back of your mind. Can't should be in the shoulder. That's talk to your mom. You're funny people. Always even spokespeople go often me book deals and I'm like I don't know if I can run this before. My mom dies I I remember I have read. It wrote a whole chapter about my relationship with my dad and right before it came out. I had them Paula. I'm reading it and even if it's honest it is like because because you've come to pace with it doesn't need to be brought up again now me and my mother a lot of people say when you pass away they they go leave anything left on say right MHM. I'll tell you me and my mom too much say more mystery subtexts towards the end we went over. We win over that relationship where she died. We went over. Every what about the time. You hit me then reparation like what am I doing. I had. I'm I'm really big on forgiveness and it's something I'm going to twelve step program and we say we forgive not because they deserve forgiveness but because we deserve peace this whole thing. We're like beat up on our parents. All the time they grew grew up in a generation. They didn't have tools. They did the best they fucking could i. My father is coming to stay with me for a couple of months and So that will be the most amount of time I've Spent with him in well over twenty years and I hear it's pretty right wing. He's very right wing. You can't late father's at trump's I love that and and and so he goes all for one month or two months and he said this to my brother and we'll see if we get along right and I love my diet exhibit. We get along and my brother went. Why don't you just don't mention trump win? I don't know if I can do that because I don't bring up politics politically in the wrong and it's not just trump. It's everything and my dad's like right-wing American but he enjoys all the left-wing Australian things like healthcare. And you know like like other things like he would agree with abortion he. He wouldn't think that he doesn't agree with guns. You know what I mean. Yeah and so he'd be lifted. IV Avenue but he likes trump trump. Says it out. Is I to me like in my day when two people were in the same room and they disagreed on things that was called an interesting conversation. Yeah like for me like we're in this chamber. We only hang out with people. We agree with. That's part of the reason I love. Hang out with Comedians so much because it. We play devil's advocate Walmart. My father does this thing like my girlfriend's friends British from Indian descent and my father. Just now just talks about too many Brown immigrants. Well you know which brand new immigrants he's talking about but she's a brown immigrants rushing offended A little bit but she now knows that there's certainly the other thing it was like you know my grandfather. When I lived in Virginia for a while I remember he would drop me off at school and he would always ask me me about how the colored kids were doing say like are the colored kids doing like? Oh God you can't say there are. We're doing quite fine. And he would ask all about their studies and how the colored kids doing and they'd come out and he point and it made me so embarrassed and I was so sick to my stomach such a racist. He's such a racist and then I found out the reason he was asking me is because he was actually paying for their tuition Aw I wanted to know like how they were doing those. If you don't pay for tuition you can say whatever you want. It was this thing where I was like. You know what I remember in an early age just going like words matter. Obviously but I was like I was calling him racist in and I thought he was racist but he was just fucking old. We're GONNA FORD PLANT IN CLEVELAND. Did he was into the worked in coal mines in Virginia and like he just didn't know oh he's not like he wasn't working call months in the Mon- how is he he. He ended up having a peanut store in Virginia and then making money. Peanut Candy Store in Roanoke Virginia and then he started before. We're going to have the allergies. That's right he's there was. You could make a killing on peanuts before the ninety and now you just kill yeah. That's right now. You're a murderer but you never told us how your intern killed someone all. That's I like the fact that anal sex is now more interesting than mass murderer. Guy So black Globulin you can look this up right so he feels bad for blake lively than anyone who tries to google arend misspelled so bright. Bright pregnant woman and then he decided he had his wife pregnant. He had his goal pregnant and he decided whether he he's kicked out from one place or whatever he went off with the the the go front right and so he went with a still visiting these kids. And whatever getting one hundred thousand dollars a month from each dad and you know and what happened to bike was then he. There's other things. There was some rod as assistant that he was dodgy with and there was a few other things anyway. The woman and gives birth to the kid tells. Blake the fuck off two weeks after the child is born blind. Trust to contact her. Mother's flying out from the Ukraina crying aware of it is to come and see the baby and the bike invites arrive to talk about their relationship and she's never seen a game well by way to timeout when relations over there's nothing to talk about. There's no let's talk about how it's who knows that I believe in once it's done it's done. There's no let's talk about why it's over that's your that's a trap. So she comes over he He scouter and drained all all of the data. There was less than a tasting. The blood now to do that. The body has to stay alive Cape pumping the blood. She was alive for maybe week. Why he just kind of different parts of limbs and all that type of stuff and then they found a comic book that he's written earlier it was all about? scalping women I get I start laughing. Nothing when things are tragic because I just can't handle it so he he He he drained about it. They said it was the worst murder in La History.

He's like the nicest Guy Ourselves fucking funny funny and nice hard combination to find and So so what's going to happen. He's GonNa Bring up a topic and I'm going to be that guy in a by that even if he doesn't know what he's talking looking back he's got to have a guy right so it can be something as simple as I can be prepared at all federal like. Tell us everything you know about plight when it was invented thing Bubba another episode might be slavery and everything like like we all know it happened but I can't give it is but I love. I love when when slavery comes up with people in bars. Because there's always that one person who's like you know white people were enslaved to write war. People Scotch Irish Schwartz Way and then and then you have original slice Jews and you like yeah. We're not talking about wants to talk about the native American Indians slave to get all the PR and you're like okay. There's always one person that wants to change your view on slavery fumbling up. Yeah totally. There's one person who really wants talk about white slavery which was actually called indentured servitude and they really want to change the focus to the white slave starts but he just may having a guard and then you so you don't really need gas but let's I have you on on the show. We can pick a subject that you know everything about. That's a great idea. That's such a great idea. It's like cups. I Dunno his mastermind where you can have your specialty topic yeah. I don't know you have the mastermind I have. It's like it's like it's like buying jeopardy but one of the topics your genius fatal from nine hundred sixty two hundred sixty six would be my category. That's a really good one because it's also fun to watch someone one. That actually knows the answer have to suffer through he pulled. You have no idea what they're talking about people who think they knew everything. That's everyone all all the time but I wanted to do another podcast. That is me solving crimes by getting a little bit of information because I think that a lot of times we try too hard to solve crimes with like fax backs and now that sounds the same but if you just use your human nature God like Oh yeah well. This is what I would do. Well documentaries because I agree with whoever's last interviewed view on Sunday morning I'm like they like watching. A murderer did do it. He definitely didn't do it. Why the jury system system is so flawed dishing actors like when you do? TV shows the last person comes in like well. That's the person that you do it then another person. Did you watch that one. The is about the guy who is the last Nazi that was getting caught. And he's going to be Ivan. The terrible is God. That is new on Netflix. She's got lived in Cleveland And he lived in Cleveland and he and something. He's he's like a Polish guy and he was working at the Ford Plant. And then like you had family and he was happy and been living. In America America students nine hundred forty five and it turned out. He Modern Bane one of the Nazis. Nazis Nazis in the Nazis Big Nazi. Yeah he was even everybody. Who's Ivan the terrible which is like There's one concentration camp. He was just poking kids in with a sword right. But now everyone's like these these guys like it when the plant was like he's in this guy is right and so there was a lot of bike with it. And then you find out he wasn't wasn't that Nazi and then I'm like there was bits where Graham like leaving the load. He's lead a good life and then you he's the things that is bad. He should go on the idea that he wasn't as bad a Nazi. Just like how quickly we low our bar are. They like he was a Nazi he was Ivan. The terrible wasn't Ivan the terrible or not. But you can't convict all like the grunts the skies you can go after the grunt guys you conned con imprisoned all of them because I would just say washed and just soldiers like anyone else that we're living in a country. They thought the winning team when the concentration camps you gotta go after but also then after the Nuremberg trials. These what happened was a lot of people who high up Nazis went to prison for three years. Five years right but then after it applied out in history then when we caught catching people in the nineties we were like death penalty. Yeah yeah so they like what am I going to. aww built the oven so there is that dilemma. That goes on now. I want to say very quickly. I'd I'd agree with Nazi. I the punishment to be consistent but you watch the documents and also like with the making the Mark Jackson thing and I watched that documentary. I watched the documentary before it came up and I was watching other people's documentaries like this person didn't didn't like What's the word speak at the trial for the kid and I'm like Oh these lying along with these are a couple of laws I think Michael Jackson was dodgy but these people are just out for money and then I watched the documentary? I'm like he's a tone the truth anybody. We'll but that's not. That's not that you are persuaded by something. You think angus persuasive. You believe people. That's actually a good thing. You strike me someone who's incredibly fair. And that's what I want to ask you if you've seen the staircase who say oh that's the one where the woman with the AL Yeah Yeah I've seen that. Yeah the one with the we. I believe that the L. did it. Yeah I don't I don't know if he did it I don't I don't think he fucking did it. Also all sorts of things. I think he's a nurses. I think he's a psychopath I think he's I just don't I'm really just obsessed with human nature and I'm obsessed with. I don't think if you killed someone you would invite. A camera accrue to be in your home for three months. I think he's done a lot of bad things but I don't think he can. What about the woman What's that place I? Scott Peterson Peterson. I don't know that much about it but my gut is just by hearing what you just said that. He didn't believe he did it but I don't believe he should be in prison. My I don't know because because there's no evidence the evidence isn't enough there's reasonable doubt. I think he did it. Yeah but they haven't got enough on him. What happened with him? was I found that he was a philander and a terrible husband and when he was a shitty human bay and so then you went shitty human bane. He should go down he is should human brain. That isn't enough evidence that that's what we do. I think as humans we get this sort of collective elective evidence we go he did this. Of course he killed no. There's a lot of liars and psychopaths and selfish narcissist who actually aren't killers and a Lotta Times. The people are the most dangerous are the ones that come off the most normal. Why do you think women causing death row? Because that's a real because that is a human nature one. Oh one thing we are attracted on a very primal level. I know I'm GonNa get a Lotta Shit to this for amended. Dangerous and on a primordial reptilian brain level can protect our babies. And you think like are can change him or you'd like that that depends on your childhood if if you were raised in an alcoholic Komar around you know I mean that's like a case by case thing but we have a primal attraction the same way a guy looks at a girl that walks by with big boobs or big hips sir. Big Lips of she's fertile. When you look at a guy with tattoos or engaging in risky behavior is that person can protect my baby? I think it's because women like to know where you I was GONNA say. Awesome awesome cheat on us at least not with other women. A man imprisoned in prison. At least we know what they're doing at all times was turned it. Bundy impregnated a woman while he was death row. But I think we also have to remember like getting these fights all the time. We're liberal women love with Ted Bundy like it's not all of us. It's not all of us. And what did Casey Anthony. She's not bad looking. People saying look like her during that trial I got a lot of Casey Anthony side. By side. She was not unattractive. But what does she do very clearly killed a child Very clearly but there's a a lot of mental illness in this world but that's mental illness. That's not being a woman. Those two things are not synonymous with mental illness. And being yeah not not synonymous synonymous that when a woman is mentally ill and does something horrific guys WanNa go see told you uh no. That's a mentally ill person. That's not man woman. That's just a very sick. I worked with block. Who did the most heinous murder in L. A. History Bleich Law and he was? He was an intern on legit. What's it is an internal legit? This is Jim shows and he was like he used to sit around Canadian and he used to sit around. The writer's room going away. You guys are doing real good work. That's killers behave. And he's turned out he was the son son of a billionaire. Who is a property guy? He was like the Canadian trump and He has two brothers and one brother is sort of cool and hangs out with the CAPRIO and drives a Ferrari Ari and plays in that cod game. In the there's a famous like card game amongst like celebrities that sorta which one which Allan Loeb won something. Amis dime amy. Oh Molly's gang always the woman. The Aaron Sorkin. Yeah so anyway. So Bleich is a guy who who didn't say that he had had parents money. He said that he was. He goes on a you mean you hired him off of merit alone or Crisci Cigar. We met him at Soho House and he just a follow him around. Ah Lucky boy. He brings coffees and stuff like that and he wanted to be a writer and he said he was a comic book writer and also and he's dropping like a Porsche nine eleven we like. How do you get these? As we didn't know he had these big inheritance not paying you. And he's like he's like Oh. What did you do with the stocks and the and then? We started taking stock tips from him. The Guy was more on all of these stock stock tips related to Oh you got to buy an EA sports at the moment because there's a new game coming out and whatever video game that he was. Ah Drink Red Bull. Red Booze producing a new beverage and you got to invest. I would take these stock tips from this killer anyway. So he had this he had a wife and he had a kid with a kid was about five and then she was pregnant with a second kid and then he got another woman I think Ukrainian in woman Pregnant getting people pregnant is so like what are you doing. You just pull out of this so hard to in one. I go well but I'm just saying like pulled together and so so So thank you find it refreshing. I feel like guys. Don't climax inside women anymore they want to do on your boom comments women. Tonight is six seven years for preference or two issues and also I like it. Yeah pulling out now.

The noise of a water come falling out is just the latest. I'll like when you have to hear it when it hits the toilet. I won't stand up and it hits the floor okay. It doesn't happen often say that. Not all VAGINAS are designed. Don't have a Fistula vistula were coming from deep. I think it was around the mouth of the you know. What would you call it the Alpha the vagina entrance the entry? I think lips is something men would say I would never say what has lips Mino but mouth just makes it sounds too because then I think of teeth. Oh my producer is telling me Labia Labia one part that I've never quite nine hall but when people are the how I don't do the hall and I know to do the clearest well versed in Nice to anything I do think most guys don't know the difference between the Labia and clitoris..

He's there every every every nine and that's his that's what he likes Rogan's always hanging out in the classroom and nothing against people doing that. It's just you know I think maybe for me I changed with having a kid. I just I became like this morning. I did school run and I was thinking to myself. This is gonNA knock like four years of my life. The school run run. I hate it. Driving and dropping officers have to wake up at six thirty six thirty because he has to get the bus at seven twenty five uh-huh and you like that's a fucking kind of a job that he's sorry. Yeah no yeah. No women do it every day. Every intercity happening all right and then like I know I'm not doing the best job with either like I'm like here's my thing. I'm sick of this. Like good apparent bad parents if he gets to the bust and if he's in school you're good siphoning clean yes right enough and he's and he's but he's not done you it has like fluffy hair kids look like crusty the clown I see kids shouldn't have perfectly quaffed hair like a creepy little had at one time I mean I I I get dressed like a go and get dressed those anyway head swimming or something that day and it turns out that he on his own six of the time uh-huh and he's I forgot to put underwear on these signs. You could do that anymore. And then the school rings only only about the underwear policy like Armenta guy. Oh I thought we were all of course it was just an era. It was just an era that he didn't have underway. They act like this is a manipulative thing that I did and I wait. Why'd you put your underwear off? God of I got to remind him in the morning. I'm like H.. Some cocoa and rice bubbles rice krispies. crispy here right and then I got eight or a scam. I have you eaten your breakfast. And then upstairs getting myself ready.

He wasn't wearing underwear. What were you had to change for swimming? Oh aw watching. I don't know I think that I think it died. I well maybe I forgot to send him in the swim. There's probably different things that I did not some missing pieces of this. Because he's mother rang me up and she was really angry with me. He's like wanting you put underwear and of course my intention is always the heavy mid underway. Yeah are always want that. He wasn't wearing it. It was not something that he's reckons. He has to show every day and I just when I was a kid. I reckon it's three times a week when you're a little kid. 'cause you don't stink like you. They do now. That's correct. That's correct I think just covering his open SARP constantly. He's not is your skin doesn't make system. Kids need to be drinking drinking water from the tap they need to be in the sandbox. Need to be getting dirty or else. They're sick all the time people I know that are like pure ailing their kids constantly. Their kids always sick. I I didn't care for his The hygiene wellbeing baby wipe that Shit. That's why they're called baby wipes I keep it clean each house. And he's now he's fine. You don't want to develop a bad association with with high. You know if you're forcing your kid to wash themselves everyday aren't thinking not just well. I think three times like after you play sport three times a week and then I remember when I was a kid could above bothell. It was Friday. What's a week and then you and then you sit down and to perfect pot and you put a dressing gown on it and you sat out and you watch the I team or whatever it is and then you didn't do it again ave yeah every Friday we wash ourselves and then there's something or entertain we need all right? Kyle probably should wash all the time. Yeah I remember. I hate about summer as a kid because I had seen that. What was the thing? Where the BLOB? The scary stories tales from the crypt was. I'd watch tales from the crypt or one of those shows and there was a a lake where there was a blob that all the girls jumped in and got eaten by the Blob and they could not. I could not take a shower or bath assume that would happen cracked. I've strange memories of binding with my brothers for too long for like like the age I was like I was like seven twelve eighty enough for take all my brother used in the shower. He'd make me sit on top of the drain. We'd see if we could flood the room. That's not you can't be cleaned doing this. I remember I was so scared of taking that. I would turn the bath on in. Put My hand. Pretend I was taking a bath and tell my parents. I had taken when I hadn't splashing flashing noise sitting there and pretend I was taking one more my mother my mother Who I I had a very? We argued a lot. Pasta is expensive but we we. We argued a lot me and the first time I ever went back to strive to do gigs and I'd been doing the thing but there was. The Sydney comedy store had a book. And I don't know if the book a particularly like twenty three twenty full but I see she rang up to Oxford Gig. This is back before I had a mobile find. All that was it was in the House with my parents and my mom got overly excited that that That this company store had run and she walks in having a shower. I'm twenty three. I'm completely and I get my mom comes in and goes Jacomb. They someone on the find free shipping. It has to be one of my friends. Who else has the number? I mean the fucking. How can you get the fuck out doing you jerk off in the shower that it wasn't joking put on Nike? I'm yelling at get the fuck out of the room like that right so now. This comedy still booker. Who didn't already like me just thinks I'm abusive to my mother? But I was. I was well within my rights to do this and I had to apologize busy. visit at what age can mom stop looking at their naked gun and what age do fathers need to stop looking at naked dogs. And that's I. I think I think we sons I think it's sort of around nine and they can't keep doing the whole obscene. It all before us the Chinese. Thank you. Yeah that doesn't really hold a lot of water. I think dads and daughters. It'd be a similar thing is before any sign of puberty comes in. You have to get out. Any sign of difference starts working in all before you know more at my son's just recently discovered he's like I got a lot of kids do it though touching at all. It's somebody's getting more curious about deco of aside. What do you do about telling him? Maybe not suit in public without giving a complex. What's what are the rules around him touching his dick well? He's not doing public it. He's he's wise enough not to do it in public do you say hey. That's the thing we do in in private. What's that conversation Yeah you say that you don't talk about it all. It was very tricky to you. Know I'm fearful of of my older footage. Amazing horrible things. Online I die see mine my niece my niece is fourteen and she was On on social media and she said about some Australian TV host when Blah Blah Blah is a cont is what she right right and I'm like she's like fourteen now I on like synonymous with the word but I'm like what are you doing. You don't do that you know 'cause because I gotTa Parenti on and she's like really you are unless it makes you millions of dollars and that was the whole thing. Yeah how can you Oranje job. It's a different thing. Don't cut into people on the street unless you're a surgeon. You're getting paid to do it right. People they did they cut into people at so surgeon telling their niece and nieces like stabbing somebody say I do that but under very surgeon does the first the first surgical precision. They have to tell the person I know there would be no surgeries. Ever surgery would have been canceled. I would imagine but I think the because teaching hospitals they do it on cadavers. A bunch I just want to go through the same many times before they fly them. No I I don't think legally they would have to tell you know. I hate it when Comedians do that. Like every now and then when you're sort of random venue in random places like this is my first time doing stand Dan. You don't tell them that bookcase so okay. So let's do another one so Let's say hey guys my first time doing that. Ed flying other missions normally. They're ex military or they've had many many hours of flat plains self-loathing all they're going to do often bin Laden surgery cutting machines winning and then I'll be like I'll have a go at right but like I saw a transsexual actual.

I've been trying to watch that online. Yeah looks like Hell. Did you ever do that. No I've been asked to do shows like that. I'll be not the strain versions of shows like that but I wouldn't wouldn't it be there's no way over shows now they just they just fear factor but twenty four hours a day eating bugs and shit. I don't WANNA eat bugs. Yeah it is sort of this signing up to humiliate yourself where I love that. They always assume comedians would be super down for that. He's in there he didn't they would. Caitlyn Jenner Oh. Oh Wow right and she did it for tense for five hundred thousand pounds. She's a lot of money. I'm not saying that it's not for Jenner daughter. The bugs this week so let me a meal. That's like a cut. I eight hundred thousand America. That's a million dollars after taxes after paying in your age and your manager probably ends up being about thirty five cents on the dollar right applying for NPR and what type of stuff so for Caitlyn Jenner. That's like I'm sure Caitlyn. Jenner does like appearances differences gets paid like that to me very much feels like basically doing it for free. I think everyone gets out of their loses. A White Guy so I think everyone looks dances. This does everyone says one. Excuse is what did you do. I thought I'd get in shape. Not why that's not why he wanted attention. I don't no I just. I can never do something like that. I like to embarrass myself in private. I've just before at my age especially when I was I was living Britain. I was doing a small so to six hundred eight rooms. It is and stuff and then I came to America and I thought my career was going nowhere and I did accept the job being celebrity. Boot camp let is that it. It's a show that would have been made if you boy band members and the next action and just like being called a Maggot by drill Sajjan and having to run up and down hills and vomit and I was like this is what I'm GonNa do. Tom Grain went into that world breath when all of these celebrity big brother and the the apprentice to the Tom Green. That makes sense when I look at them and like you. It's like Oh someone who's really smart and really incisive now. I want to see him exercise. Why do you also have to see US exercise and humiliate like where we have gone? We now want to see people respect and admire. Just be miserable as us so thing when you went to the celebrity apprentice used to see people with big stars that were watching Cindy lauper she was messy. But I know that stuff that I've been in this business long enough to know that it's like okay that. How is that person making money now? You know that is probably a paycheck thing. Still Caitlyn Jenner. Still need to I think CHEAPO Caitlyn Jenner dozen. But I think Cindy lauper. I don't know I think people just get bored of not being famous. That's thinking about retiring. No no I'm a workaholic. Oh I've been working like these. I always think 'cause people he's go what would you do. I think it'd be around with nothing but I've never given nothing ago. I'd be worried about you. If he stopped working I could. It could abused substances pretty quick. You and I are similar in this way. I think yeah you would be like remember when that Eddie Furlong that guy that was in terminator that's celebrity all of a sudden There was a story Eric in history there was a story that he like stole. A bunch of lobsters lobsters from a restaurant. Like that would be us. You know we still have expensive tastes. You're still belie I feel like we would like start shoplifting so we would need adrenaline rush. I have my credit card stolen and had that whole like text. Did you make payment heated. You make a payment and I Rang up the bank and the two payments were one was for baby formula and the other one was to get a car out of an implant and I was like and it was like an Akron. Ohio and I was like yeah I can tell by the transactions. Sad story ory was and I was like I let him use it for like a week and then they kept on buying too many shoes on razzle dazzle. Whatever residues what's the catch as many ways to kind of razzle still here on a discount shoe low is your self esteem? You're not even going to going. There's something very clear you haven't been caught yet and we can catch you pretty quickly cars from the impact that has to be a paper trail that leads someone who probably still your credit card hard but also as kind of a fan and it's like I don't Wanna I don't WanNa go to macy's has got to be a dead. I had another one the other dialects on paying the building up for sprint. I went on. I've sprint not doing that. So what's the we gotta tighten up your security with credit card coming and they've already cancelled that one and by a lot of stuff online by most of my things online. I have a brother who works in retail. And he's like he used to develop shopping centers and he says that's like the worst thing in the world. It's like when we talk about illegally downloading things like it's ruining coming people having cameras in the in the in the audience and he goes. Did you buy this online. Want you just kick me and my family out on the streets Goo Ziesel about the moles. But you can't stop this. They're taking their. It's starting to circle back it..

"I get the whole thing but at the same time no go on vacation swimming pool so well you know it is interesting because because there are people jim view lost thirty pounds you lose wrecked. Its new act every while so it's but I think there is this you craft a persona craft a persona and you will it's point of view and the reality is people change their point of view. I'm not saying that you'RE GONNA go back to drinking. I'm saying that you're going to evolve you. In ten years might have different opinions and which goes back to from my point that this arrogance that humans think that we have it all figured out when our views evolve hopefully yeah chain yeah as himself. It's not necessarily for better or worse. It's just different but but do you feel like whereas a normal person never has to contemplate whether or not their audience is going to join them on this evolution. You would be irresponsible not to wonder Is this new direction I'm going in. I'M GONNA alienate. Here's the thing what makes your friendship or your relationship with your wife so dynamic. It's that you're challenging each other. There's there's still some mystery. There's some surprise there's and the her approval of me is not a foregone conclusion devalue that by the way it's probably harder to acquire yeah and so the thing about stand up the comedian with the audience. It's you have to challenge them like I have a friend todd glass who occasionally will open for me and he's like you're always purifying your audience like you'll elsa out. You'll have a joke in there. That will say hey. This is who I am. I think that we live in this age of this exhibitionist voyeuristic era where you have to reveal something which by the way is why podcasts are so popular is because people are revealing things in blur funny. Authenticity Tissot is so cherished so but my point with the stand up is that you have to challenge like the great friends who have they will challenge and you and they'll say d really believe that you know that's bullshit tax hit. You don't really believe that and you might go fuck you but then you're like you know what yeah maybe you're right so oh like having you know on my seven special or touring into city like Atlantic City for the thirteenth year in a row. Oh with new material is that that audience knows that I'm GonNa be funny. There's also an expectation that I'm going to surprise them. A little uh-huh. Maybe I'M NOT GONNA. I'm not GONNA do magic tricks but I'm going to talk with. You and I'm GonNa talk about something that makes them uncomfortable but maybe opens up a little bit yeah now. It sounds like I'm over promising just saying like you have to evolve. I think the best example of it is stern. It's like if you compare the show today to twenty five years. You can't even compare the two and I think so many people argue with about stern. They're arguing from when he was entre stroh radio the last time they heard them twenty years ago. We don't like that Guy Right. He threw Baloney girls asses and I'm like I can't defend that but it's it's been a long time through Baloney. It's the way it's an he's also somebody that has a teflon ability like if you lined up his crimes uh-huh oh sure sure sure I tell you what the whole thing is. We're just really I think drawn to hypocrisy so he's never purported to be some pillar of morality eighty. We're not tearing the rogue off of him. You know what I'm saying. It's like he's owned his his shadiness in a way that there's no story there well. I think there that might be true but I think that there's an additional teflon ability that if things don't stick to him they are things. Don't stick to him and it's a a very unique person. I'm not complimenting it or criticizing it. I'm just saying you're away with murder. Oh sure you're and other people they're like look at that Shirt Day war. I are Never GonNa forget absolutely okay so you have a bunch of stuff coming me now. You've been a very busy beaver. Yes you have a movie on August second called them that follow. I was right to guess that it's a little bit dark ark. It's darn it's it's about a religious call. It's a pentecostal snake healing church in Appalachia APPALACHIA. I'm going to mispronounce it high and I play the husband of Olivia. Colman career seems to be going all right and Walton. Walton is done at playing the minister and so it's a pretty soon amazing castle. There's so many amazing people in that comes out in L. A. On August second can't National August ninth and then August sixteenth is Amazon. You have a comedy special and it's their first comedy special versus comedy special. It's called quality time quality time okay now now. The big thing is American Dreamer on September twentieth. Yes it's the movie that I want directors and producers to see if they can go. Oh Wow he can act yes yes. That is what I want to happen. Who Do you play in that? I play a rideshare driver in Norfolk Virginia who is kind of down on his luck and who ends up driving around around a drug dealer. Some people are rideshare drivers. It's kind of like a side hustle or whatever and then there's some rideshare drivers that are crazy so so I'm more of the latter okay. I'm this Guy Cam so it is it's a it's a larger look at entitlement when in late entitlement and stuff like that and so there's a lot of heavy heavy stuff that happens in it. That's one of the topics I'm most fascinated by yeah. It's the white male entitlement. It's really interesting because playing this guy you know I I mean acting particularly where you're playing this character later that is so complex and you sit there and go. I want people on board for the first twenty minutes and then I want to plant the seed. It's in the script but you WANNA plan to see wait a minute. Maybe this should I be rooting for this guy and then the last act you're like. I can't believe I ever liked this guy. You know the driving force of this character actor is he can't believe he has to deal with this stuff right which is just that encompasses entitlement yeah well. If you grow grow up hearing your whole life you could be president in you. You know there's some kind of expectation yeah that when not met its skies can't even understand it incomprehensible yeah. I'm not supposed to be in by the way it's in you know it's weird also portraying someone like this. You have have to not have any doubts about his decision making process so it's so fun to shoot it and then you get done in someone's it's like I can't believe your character did that. In your mind you're going. That's only could do really start defending. Were so like I'm so crazy. I'm like what's wrong with that. Yes you end up. Defending this insane behavior will in order to play this as well worn. Everyone knows but yeah to play a serial the real killer successfully you can't be in judgment of the serious issue dimensional yeah. No serial killer thinks they're a bad guy. They think they're they're a great guy. Look when I read it. I was like this is a an amazing opportunity because no one's GonNa think that I'm going to go there right one it screened at the La Film Festival. What's it like see people kind of like just kind of like physically turning like why would you do that right you know what I mean and then also horrendous things happening and then he just Kinda goes on because by the way that's what happens in life? Life is what happens in life is horrible things happen and the world continues to Spin Will Jim. We're going to see all the things we're going to see them that follow. WE'RE GONNA watch quality time on Amazon and then we're going to go to movie theater need some popcorn on September twentieth and watch American Dreamer. We're going to support you your loveable kind person thank you I recommend anyone who's planning a Trans American flight from. La to New York you're not you can't find a better servcie partner thing so we held hands during before during the turbulence and then I will say I told Jim that I would be capable of landing the plane and he did not feel any safer than you do. When I offer well Jim thanks thanks for comment you for having me and here's where like the The podcast music comes in the desert songs. We played the Bird Dance Birdsong meals all right.

It was going all wrong and I used that Africa's Barry was saying things are getting too expensive businesses slowing down. You have guys on who tell the truth and it's remarkable doctors who like I don't wanNA open heart surgery but if I had to write what what's the balance though you're talking about people's money you see your talking about the people's money and you're giving people tips. What's the balance between entertainment in serious talk because the way I feel like I'm a big gambler right and not don't it was says I can't Campbell of course but you are kind of like you know how we do a show called Barstool sports visors where it's about hamming it up up in having fun in probably a little less about the picks. You obviously are a lot about the picks that information so what's that balance like well look. I think if I don't entertain the people watch the stocks can be inherently boring so we have to work in a lot of jokes that work in a lot of cultural references because Google you can work in Shakespeare beautiful you one you can work in anything baseball anything football the have to so. I would say that obviously the entertainment is probably about twenty five percent because because we got to get people in one of the reasons why I think we've been successful as we recognize we have to entertain. It is a joy to entertain. You get a lot of callers because Eh Sunshine Yo but you know I pal people. That's what they a stream. You're an ice cream chocolate. Oh Hey one time they gave me strawberry.

Yeah yes ask Mister October. So do you think you'll work to the day like he did. I sure hope so yeah. I sure hope so. There's no slowing down. No no speedup beat up now. It's time of it here everyone else in my my high school classes retiring i. This is the time to really go full throttle right right. Who would you say the three or four or five.

He taught all of us and one on Wall Street is still the best single book ever. What's it called one up on Wall Street. I mean it. It's just a pure joy book i-mode I love it. I like Byron Wean who works at Blackstone own and he's got a tremendous view. is another older gentleman really good. You know about him. He's he's phenomenal. I like Dave Tepper who owns the panthers. He was my boss at Goldman and one time I came down. I wanted to buy sell bonds for this company. Primorac which was an Donovan Company and there was about a thousand people on the floor of the of Goldman Sachs in the bottom floor and I came down. I said listen Dave. He was headed junk stave I'd like to I think I can get a lot of points. Look if I sell these primer bonds and goes everybody. Listen Up. I got a first class jerk who want it's a cell. Primorac bonds and hurt all his customers and make fools of them. What's your name. Assuming Jim Jim Coach's his name is Jim Cramer and he is going to gaff every single customer and this guy is a disgrace. Get off my floor and I said well. Is there any way to redeem myself. He Goes Yup never get off my so he owns the panthers the one of the greatest investors ever stick and a great sense of humor the best years years later. He said he was pretty funny that thing with the pods it's kind of funny talk for me yeah kind of like Jon Stewart Good Yeah how how how was like looking back to the John Stewart. I meet my best yeah. Yeah I look back data's Abbas appearance. You know homerun kind of a home. Rice route is playing football. You're not allowed to invest in the stock market. No no so what do the investing if you don't mind my wife does real estate yeah do that. We have a lot of real estate real state. A lot of real estate held real estate bars yeah restaurants. It's re this so I'm I'm. I don't play the stock market the stock market. It's a foreign language to me. Okay I inherently in the cynic in me thinks it's raked look. I think that's a great question because often I have a piece tonight that talks about a subtle little rigging. It's I think it's rigged for the big guys first of all when I say that most stocks costs a thousand dollars Russell Wilson buys stock for Amazon Zahn Stock First Offensive Line's great little guy can't afford that right and so to me they should split the stocks and allow little guys in that's why I say it's rigged toward the big guys because these stocks that are thousand Bucks Alphabet Google thousand. Two hundred bucks. We'll you know that just keeps out the little guy they used to split these stocks so that the little little guy could own stock they had made it so it's too expensive per share now what they'll say. Oh give me a break. It doesn't matter it's you know it's all the same company but that is to me away to keep the little guy out instead. They make them being all these. ETF's they should own stocks and ETF's. Also I mean they used they used to be the Franklin. Roosevelt said we shouldn't allow the shortsellers to bang down stocks. We got rid of that too so a lot of the smart guys banged down stocks now. You're loud the short. I'm not against that but these are the things that make us for. The little guy gets scared. FLASH CRASH LITTLE GUY GETS SCARED December. The market goes bad little guy gets here so they're just scared and we need to protect them and one of the things I try to do and money's protect the little guy because the little guys can be a big guy if you don't drive them out the little guy can go by Amazon two hundred bucks or by Apple. It's fifty but no no no. I mean they've made it so that the dollar amounts are so big that little shopping streets they. I can't buy a tenth of a share now. They do have these little things where you can buy shares but but they're not right in Berkshire hathaway because that's that's a great example era. That's a great example stock was at two hundred bucks when I started to go out and that was a reasonable and the and then it goes to one hundred thousand regular person can't quote houses so I think it's rigged in the sense that big boys have an edge. At what are you invest in. I don't know what I'm saying like. I don't really invest in anything A-ROD CORTO public. I inherently think that it's especially you know obviously the crash happens in two thousand nate and then nothing changes and and everyone stays in power and all the rich people can make you know that's the Gatien of what happened now when they when they had the crash of eighty seven there was a big treasury investigation and we found exactly who were the bad guys know investigation. The government plays no role. The exchanges changes are absent. This must stop the government must get involved to protect in. Milken was one of the few that got in trouble. I know an awful lot of pizza and a lot of good cinde rebel. Abo- with cancer over one hundred million dollars major league baseball eight it back he all the way to me. He is redeemed himself and he's a good man and we need the government to be involved to protect checked a little so how how do how do people our listeners who are probably more like me than they are like a rod and I mean that in terms of you know our pocketbooks folks. Chechen more money okay with the CBS cable to see how do how does someone who's like me or younger than me a millennial be like hey look. I WANNA play the stock stock market. I've no no fucking idea what to do and guess what I think. It's rigged. Well Okay so you look at long-term. It's not rig so what you do is you buy. I was in when I lived in my car which she was not exactly a great time although as a chick magnet thing your place or mine and put in the left Mesa we'll put it off. We'll have somebody that somebody I really don't need it. All shares index you buy the Shares Index Fund and then in overtime that really does work and it'd been great for me away from my kids. Even when I was living my car put under house wage month would my was was a detriment to a lot aww I liked but I was born and and been robbed and everything but I still had money to invest in so you take a longer term view yes short-term. It does feel very rigged right and I think that's an important thing and putting away money every month because I think that's something that probably my generation does not and that's what they have to do and I know that it seems like a boring thing but if you put it away every month it does compound because like you take stock like Pepsi. They keep playing dividend paying dividend paying dividend. They've doubled their dividend ten years. That's a great stock to own. If you've done your index rex fun maybe buy one hundred shares Pepsi. I mean that kind of thing. I've got a lot of stocks that I recommend and I feel very strongly. That investing is for everybody but people have have to recognize that if they don't have the time or inclination they should do index yeah so jim a little rapid fire because I I think in round yeah and it has to be one word it can be you just a short central on some of these. CEOS Warren Buffett best in show Jamie diamond unbelievable radio really smart. Dan Loeb Clever Can Griffin Rich Jeff Basil's brilliant Elon Musk Weirdo. Oh sorry I born born in last one mark Zuckerberg nefarious because he'd sell you sell your name you'd sell any he's probably sold me while I'm talking right to the Russians Chilean probably soldier the comms what is like vesting in in a company that you might not morally agree with what they do. I mean for instance. I won't let people I always say about Philip. Morris Altria say now right. They like life's too short. Just not gonNA recommend those guys. I mean Cole. No thank you I got enough trouble so if you're a young listener and what you have many and everyone in my staff by the way I hide my staff because my staff never misses you. Thank you thank you but let's just say Jim. I said Jim had a million dollars explained to me. How how you would diversify that across the board okay so if you could invest this if you can't is that yes if you could invest in this late in the cycle. Okay well what I would do. it depends on your age. If you're in your fifties and sixties you went eighty percent in the stock market index for twenty twenty.

I one hundred percent of my capital and then ten percent of it was my dad's because I didn't have enough and then it was about fifty million and then ultimately I took it to six hundred million and then I retired in two thousand. I weighed about thirty pounds more than I did do now. I was I was troubled. How many hours tonight I settle two-thirty I never slipped past thirty because of the because the bad guy sleep till three thirty very now see the problem is I could never really identify the bad guys but you know who they are and I like to get up an hour before then so that I'd never let anybody beeping was for the London markets. I look trading in Japan. I love trading in London. Japan was really important back then because what would happen is the Japanese would say listen tonight. We're taking Tokyo electronic so I want to be there and then the next taking up Tokyo Rail Tokyo market was totally rigged but it was bigger than the United States sparking back then but I traded traded aggressively between three and four three in my pajamas gym so eight of mice my softer dentin that's crazy eighty seven to raise the fifty or sixty million dollars what kind of LP's did you have and how to take this question. I had a couple of people who are behind me when I was at Goldman and then there are other people called there were fabulous people people who just wanted to listen and I told them that I had all my money in it which was really the important I told him to follow me was eighty. Seven of the market crashed by had no money in the market for the crash and that's what I became famous for for was sold everything the week before and after that I just carried around I was called. My run showed that here's where position the week before and I could present well. I was able to curtail my temper during that. The temple was really just about someone making a mistake race race. Leave me and I used to have a lot of spare keyboards because I love to hit the keyboard with the phone cues fly in the WSB flying east flying ours planet girls but women picking heeds keys out of their hair and stuff new keyboard new keyboard but you know it's an intense business and if you don't match it with the intensity then you should get out so you so you sold all your your stock before the crash in one thousand nine hundred. What was that line munition permission okay? Yep helped by impure candor. Lisa Lisa hold traders my ex wife Karen who was Jean Enersen stocks and she said listen. The market got to be honest. Yes okay so so tell me this. Then great sounds like David Geffen and Sam Zell timing gave you have a little looking so tell listen. Obviously the same thing didn't happen when a crash in two thousand eight two thousand eight I was in in I did go nuts on TV right said they know nothing thing about the. Fed they know nothing the problem with that as TV person and TV person doesn't really get a lot of TV. person is always going to be laughed at birth. The fund manager would have been more potent but I was a fund manager previously so I think that I should have been more listened to but when I looked at the Fed minutes came ain't now five years later. They admitted to mention me evidences laugh laugh okay best right. I did my best so oh so the transition from you retire from your Hedge Fund was that because you weren't enjoying it or wasn't enjoying it. I thought it was not not worth a couple of things that happened that were signals that it was time to go my partner at the time. Jeff said to me in the middle of the day he said listen yeah. I got to go to see my daughters play and I said she is going to be in a million plays. God Damn it. This is the day that Intel reports that in retrospect was assigned.

Am and I'd just tell you to go home for six in the midst boom the water bottle back the him what an arm norm Tomo Europe myself look people around who want me to look good but that is yeah that's who I was and the reason I say that because I became a kinder kinder gentler guy and I think it's important to try to distinguish between that guy who it did not meet Lisa who is the the front office here and did not know what life could be like. I was tortured and I'm not tortured. What you're getting more so I can be. I was the most sincerely insincere man in North America back then but I think you know I'm a go along. Get along Vanilla.

I'm that guy and I when I joined the media for instance. They wanted to try to teach me to not sound like a Philadelphia well. This is how I talk and in many ways I am just a creature of tenth and read in South Philly. Okay my mom's from the north side and what what happens is you are. Who you grow up where you grew up. Chicago's Nice people were a little bit more. Were loving and hating okay. We love and hate but yeah I mean. I think I'm regular because I grew up regular and I didn't forget and a lot of guys forget and it's really incredible when you hear them now.

Unfortunately it's a major loss of time time suck but let's picking stocks in answering machine and and then I went to Goldman. Sachs meeting and Goldman hired me and it was not easy. I had to go ten times before I got the job so lawyer. Goma sacks. Tell me the lessons you learned are going to say oh you know what they did was. They shifted me from water. Sales and trading lessons were rigor. Okay the rigor. The rigor that you needed was incredible a just to get the job. One time they call me. Down is a twelve o'clock. They said look sitting in this closet of office and we'll get to you when we're ready to interview you. If five o'clock came out there was I opened. There was nobody there air.

That'll wipe us out. I said well that's perfect. That's what it's supposed to do and then I decided to do it for myself myself just because I didn't like being talked to like that and I started. We lost a lot of money. Finally you lost about one hundred twenty five mil trying to set a record right I mean didn't some players players for the mets lost about hundred twenty five million. I did with a company. But how did you lose one hundred twenty five mil easily walk me through that well. What happens is that? When can you say you lose ten million dollars a year because you're not selling as much advertising it tends to accumulate over time and you're paying a lot but we had a lot of eyeballs boss see. We were like an audition like we didn't. We're losing money but opthamologist but we had eyeballs and so people wanted us. We were hot stock. We opened at sixty two went to sixty seven next.

We don't even see yeah. It doesn't surprise me but but if you have enough experience like that or even like versions of that i think think the lesson i learned i mean it took me a while. Is that too not put your own. You know self vouch southworth and stuff like that so it is such a marathon anyway yeah. Oh oh my god how many people are we both. Kinda came up with her yeah. <hes> so the fact that you were covering these things like letterman and once they happened which they did in the early to late nineties late nineties yeah. It's so did that feel what was that fulfillment that feeling very very <hes> the version of heat. It's weird 'cause doing letterman was the only goal like as a comedian performing coming letterman on letterman only goal that i kind of had not pilots not doing it you know i wanted to. I always wanted to act back to <hes> i had gotten by the way there was. There's times when <hes> you know when my first comedy special aired the u._s._a. Today did a little blurb and it said sitcom actor jim gaffe again. Try stand up. We're the perception was sitcom. I'm guy and they didn't know about my standup so it's all weird i it's such a perception business right and was that because you've done tons of commercials chose well i've done i had a run of like being on sitcom that seventy show and yeah i think ed i re occurred on eh but i'd been on that's where we met yeah and then the ellen her sitcom and then i had my own sitcom so there was a bunch of stuff right and that's i mean that's the thing i mean. This is a bit of a tangent but i hate the way that <hes> like. I never feel like doc. I appreciate how described in article. I'm always kind of like clean comedy or in the comedian the and for everyone what about funny write funny right that's fine. That's funny the comedian you can watch with your twelve all of your old funny. You're not just sitting there listening just because there's not curse word because it's funny and so i know plenty of unfunny light clean and so anyway yeah most well.

You and you requested a chair no but when we're doing the scene the directors like you know i want you to go slower and has that's the first time i've never in my life slow talk but he he's such a grounded and moments in realism vinson wincing gallon vincent gallo remember jonah hill used to say he'd he'd call himself he when he he did a few in india.

Don't remember it but you must have had you had like athletic and i didn't realize you played football. I i did play football but i wasn't. I think i'd just tried really hard. I had older brother. That was good at sports. <hes> and you know but you know yeah. I guess i was an athlete at brother that you looked up to one yes. I wanted to be around around him. Yeah and stuff and i'm actually i've taken over his identity. <hes> my brother's name was jim. Gaffe again actually steve oh. It's like a talented to be ripley. Talent lists found this. Is that what mr ripley oh yeah. I haven't seen that in a while. He took over jude law's persona. I guess it's weird because it's the fell off. Man doesn't look like you're in that. I was now film.

I am not just saying i've gotten into a place a very comfortable place that i've never really been in my life where i as much as i would like certain aspects of their careers to win to win awards to be in liked you. You know superhero things and be fun to do those things. I don't <hes> here comes the lie i do. I formulate this. Why yeah but i don't. I just want to be nice well. I know that sounds like bullshit. I as i'm saying it no i think by the way i do think that you know at least for me and my career once i like i struggled so hard <hes> like i wanted to get letterman men and conan yeah appearing on those shows and i kept getting rejected and then really i was like i guess i'm not going to get these shows those <hes> i had to come to the conclusion. Oh you know what i get to do. What i enjoy that's all that matters right and then once i decided decided that then they and so like the whole it sounds corny but i think it's the like the creative fulfilment is really the whole thing because also the the whole charade of even opening nights or so absurd your didn't we see a movie here like a week ago.

"The pilot of this flight is so red-faced. He looks like drunk. Jim gaffe again. I'm actually genuinely concerned earned and he's grossly flirting with the blonde middle-aged flight attendant <hes> i said i don't think he's flying and then i wrote him so he'd feel better. I said i don't think he's flying. He's just hitching a ride but he's still in the cockpit. That also made me concern that he was once. I realized he was just hitching a ride. It was like well. Why do you have to make why does he get to go in the cockpit. He was wasted he was he was actually in the cockpit. Yes he sat in that little jumper seat. I feel like that i didn't i didn't realize that yeah the whole flight and then at the end he was that you did i saw i'm like kind of get out of the cockpit and it was a red eye and at one point he he he made a couple of trips to the bathroom and he was so loud and i was trying to sleep. Battlezone seems dangerous and it's like have you ever driven a really been the d. for really drunk person and there's always that possibility that he or she could like like impulsivity. Just grab the wheel or stopping something crazy and like i feel like i've tried to do that as both a d._v._d. And dp anyway anyway so the point is the point is the drawing pilot who wasn't flying. The plane. Thankfully looked so so much like jim gaffe again but jim is our guest today. I know i'm repeating myself but he is one of the funniest people well. We have had some very show so i think it bears repeating. He actually like by the numbers legitimately is like one of the top five most successful comedians in the country the thing about jim though is is that he's he's funny and so many what he's also funny i don't know how to say this without sounding insulting and i it it comes up in the interview but he's very funny looking to. He's got a funny and he's got a funny delivery and he's got this. I remember when i first met him. I just really i love being around him. He made me. He's the kind of person that makes you laugh. Even when he's saying something mundane you know when he's just like describing what he had for breakfast because he has this hint of a smile on his face every time he taught when he talks about certain things things and the to the point where there have been times all star laughing. I'll go and then the smile kind of breaks into a bigger surmounting a wide. What's why you laugh you know even when we talk about some serious stuff and he's so consistently funny that it's hard to pivot with him about serious now. He's always sort of reminded me of jerry seinfeld someone like when i think of jim gaskin. I always think he's one of the rare like seinfeld. One of the clean comedy doesn't curse in his show and he's which to me is always much more impressive in again a comedian. I mean you think about everyone. We grew up watching everybody. All of the greats like chaplin and marx brothers and steve martin even get getting into the sixties and seventies. None of them could occur lenny bruce. Lenny bruce broke a lot of barriers careers but like yeah the generations of comedy before that. I don't think there's anything wrong. I think cursing can be in stand up. Comedy can be done so effectively. I'm funky like bill byrd chris rock. I mean those guys use swears and such a smart way. I just started. I'm hoping far enough away from oh god. I'm definitely tournament donovan from will so it's safe there well. I think it's time to get the show started speaking of the perfect segue to our guest <hes> who i'm sure it's sure anyway the he's known mostly as far but he also is a comedian and actor and just a great guy really funny. I hope you enjoy my conversation with jim. Geffen you sweetheart do shopping. <hes> life is short is brought to you by chase so you're ready to downsize a chase they get it. You've.

"I was is going to be miss america or the first man on the on mars yeah it just it was it was so am the phrase to your own horn so to your own horny that this there's no way there's no way possible you know like no one in the entertainment industry in my town there was uh or there was the marching band. There wasn't even a theater department yeah and so but i often think of like yeah now. My kids are getting older and they are creative and stuff like that and i'm like you know it's like you want to say hey. I'm afl uc live. I'm lucky there's a lot of things lined up. Some of it is just me never stop working but it's luck yeah but i always bring this point up. It's like dead poet's society. I haven't seen in a long time but we watch the movie and there's that father that's like you're knock and be an actor and then the kid kills himself yeah at this point in my life. I'm like you know what that dad was. That was right boy. I hope your wife this those kids out of there like i mean look. The dad was. Let's listen. Listen first of all first of all your children to to say you want to work in a creative field does not mean you're going to be celine indian. It could mean you're somebody that works at the record label or it means. You're somebody that plays cello on in on her records records. You know there's all this is an industry that was that was something that was very formative to me. When i first came to los angeles and it started having i was making a living doing show but it was you know it was like an stage show and it wasn't much of a living but i came out here and i remember one time because i was here with a group of people from chicago and we drove out to the beach and i remember looking at all the houses and thinking on on the way to malibu and thinking this can't be like every one of these houses can't be somebody that i know you know what i mean like alex. Some of these houses have to belong to guys that hang lights. It's or work at the studio or are somehow in distribution of records. There's all kinds of ways to make a living in this business and like with my kids. They're going to do something creative but i don't. I don't even know what if they work. I told my son because he was having trouble trouble getting his homework done this year and that and i mean he had other sort of like but like there was one point where he was really just had trouble getting his homework done and i was the same way i- terrible a._d._h._d. Or a._d._d. Whichever one i couldn't get homework done and i mean i was smart and if you know my mother my mother was not into scholastic shit all what she did is. She put a desk in the basement facing a blank wall. This is where you're going to do homework with a minimum of distraction attraction and i would sit there with a worksheet it would take me ten minutes and for twenty minutes there at the ceiling and the go okay come on you. Gotta do this and then do like half have a question and then feel like frankenstein or like a vampire having garlic shoved in his face like i can't do it you know and uh and i it was it so puzzling to me and then as time went on what i ended up having to do there was no just you just have to grind grind and make yourself do it and that was i was trying to tell my son that one point where we had a conversation on one hand. I meant it. I told him hey look if you're having trouble in your senior high school doing homework. Maybe college isn't for you do because you know if you go to college the homework. There is going to be worse than your senior year of homework so if you can't do homework maybe you just go get a job. It's fine with me. I love you either way. It doesn't matter and he told me later when you told me that it broke my heart and i was like yet was supposed supposed to like i was i was on purpose saying honey. You can do this and if you really wanna look at your choices. If you really want to narrow narrow it down to simple problem solving. What are the things you can do. That's one of your options and if you don't like that option which you shouldn't like take that option although if you did no big deal honestly it. My son said i'm going to join the coastguard great be happy. Do what you want but i did want. I'd wanted him to see like you know like this is definitely one option you could choose and from all the complaining you're doing about the path. You're on if you look at another path. It's this one you don't want that right. Then you gotta just buckle so it's so interesting right the whole idea of because there's all forming human beings trying to help insane because chino you said a couple of things that are fascinating while i well i did one. It's just the detachment our parents had it was a different approach. Oh shit that. I my parents never came to school. No oh yeah i was at school every ten fucking minutes. It seemed you know yeah and so but the other thing is is like also because i've discussed this with other comedians is like is it nature or nurture so in other words the work ethic like i you know growing up my i father. We were essential. I used to think like he just had kids so that he could have a yard crew right now because he would just be like. Why don't we move this. It also have been the sex talk with your mom but when you but he a but is there was and so like i look back and i go did i get my work ethic from that yard work on. I don't know but so like talking to one person in particular who's dad also. It's iran have any control over it <hes> you. You don't have if they see you work. Maybe some of it up but it's either in them or it's not in them. You can only kind of guided so much yeah and so there is that scenario of you know you gotta do your own passed so like i as i brought up failing to get into the college that i wanted wanted to go to. It's i do think that everything along the path contributed to my success and my failure i have right now. Yeah duromine remains georgetown. What did it make you do. You said after georgetown said no.

Oh wow so. That's really something yeah congratulations. Thank you gotta really rethink my whole jim gaffe again picture in my head no and so but it is you know it's terrifying terrifying as a parent yeah. It's like what do you do and also the point that you brought up. It's like you wanna be honest and you wanna give instruction and i feel as though my children they're just like like do remember when dad said that i always picture them in a therapist office in the early years and then my dad who on most weekends said said to me letters nothing i mean all you can. I mean i'm going to be dead. It doesn't matter right exactly right. It's just like ain't insurance get rid of that life insurance right now our problems then dad in dead. Poets society was a good guy good guy now. It says your model for fathering authoring is up but i was boy. He was thinner guy. I think he also played the data and that seventies show didn't he. I don't know i don't remember. I remember having a it's been talking about. I've seen that he looked across the room and he could be in there. He's known. I got three screens in front.
