Startup Streamer Quibi Quits
"A huge Hollywood experiment ended its life in a way that seems somehow fitting qube accompany designed to bring miniature Netflix's quality shows to your smartphone call. It quits earlier this month like it's programs which were no longer than ten minutes apiece. quickies vary life was itself short only about six months long the infant media company hit attracted almost two billion dollars from investors about one hundred, fifty, million dollars in advertising and some big name actors and directors. As a result quibbles dramatic closure has spawned no end of speculative criticism about what the startup did wrong and whether it's leaders Hollywood powerhouse, Jeffrey Katzenberg and former HP. CEO Meg Whitman did anything right? In case you haven't heard of it. The original idea behind Qube was to make high quality programs that were short enough to watch from start to finish. While waiting to do something else say riding the subway were standing at checkout line. These wouldn't be user generated youtube like videos but what qube envisioned as the quote next generation of storytelling dramas comedies a non-fiction programs cut into quick bites the origin of the company's name you get the idea. QUBE had the bad luck to launch during the pandemic that meant the service designed explicitly for people out and about debuted when people were in definitely not out and about position as another streamer. But Not at first on your TV quickly did what most streamers and new apps do when it launched in early April it offered a ninety day free trial about a million and a half people signed up and presumably began watching quickies original shows thrillers like. Wireless about a drunk man caught in a New Year's Eve snowstorm free Ray Sean drama about a black man accused of killing a police officer and last looks a series about scandals in the fashion world. As I said earlier at launch, you can only watch on a smartphone despite the fact that most viewers were quarantined in their homes with perfectly usable TV's at their disposal. It took a few more months for quick to make the TV leap. The question back in May and June was how many of those initial free viewers would convert to paying customers quickies price was high five month with ads were eight dollars without them as the verge points out apple TV plus costs four, ninety, nine a month worse quickies higher prices more expensive than Disney plus. The answer on those conversions was clear. Qube didn't get anywhere near enough money or viewers, and with that dearth viewers, some advertisers threatened to canceled on October Twenty Second Katzenberg Whitman published an open letter on medium announcing queries collapse. The founders laid some of the blame on Covid nineteen but not all in addition to timing they said, another likely reason could be. That the idea itself wasn't strong enough to justify a standalone streaming service. Indeed. A great deal of the criticism says exactly that the format itself was flawed from the start ten minutes may have been far too long for some content and far too short for others. A sort of nether world that works for user generated youtube content, but not for expensive productions that aspire to be the next Netflix. As one example, the Guardian reporter. Jack Bernhardt commended free ratio on actors Steffan Jones Laurence Fishburne an emmy winner. Jasmine Safest Jones for spectacular performances in powerful production. But he added quote it feels almost offensive to everyone involved that I can only watch it on tiny phone screen. Furthermore, he said it should have been a two hour film not fifteen quick bites. The company is exploring selling the rights to some content screenwriters and producers with shows underdevelopment or left to try to sell them elsewhere a tough sell given that most media companies can't use five or ten minute episodes. is returning about three hundred, fifty million dollars to investors and giving severance to two hundred employees. The Wall Street Journal reports, Katzenberg and Whitman's letter puts quickies. Of the entire very busy streaming media ecosystem the executives would never have imagined launching during a pandemic they said, but they admitted other businesses have faced these unprecedented challenges and have found their way through it. Indeed, we've reported here on boom times for Netflix's and Disney plus among others all of benefited enormously from lockdowns. The mistake Qube made lies in a different sphere altogether says verge critic Julia Alexander Qube didn't fail because TIKTOK. existed she says, it failed because executives refuse to see Tiktok its biggest competition she wrote tick tock has exploded globally with an ever growing mountain of user generated short form video video that is virtually free to produce free to consume. But qube had its I trained on net flicks if Alexander is correct quimby was looking for threats or a role model in the wrong direction. In an already struggling Hollywood, it's hard to watch the layoffs of employees and the suffering of artists who shows are now killed. A great deal of talent converged around quipping remains to be seen. We're all that talent. Finding out.

DC, we aren't using Jasmine's full name because of the social stigma associated with poverty. She tried to get pandemic unemployment assistance back in the spring when everything shut down and she couldn't start a new job at national stadium I was receiving. Five hundred dollars a week.

Spriggs. He's the chief economist for the AFL CIO and also a professor of economics at Howard University in Washington. Thanks for being here this morning. Thanks for having me. What's GonNa Happen to people like Jasmine if Congress can't agree on more federal aid. For the moment, some people depending on where they live or benefiting from the halting of evictions that means they're building up arrears and their rent many of them because they don't have a flow of income are also building up whereas when utilities or they're borrowing from Peter to pay Paul and they're building up careers there as well. The problem for others is they are in places where he fictions are taking place. there. quaint to need extra deposit in order to get the next rent, their credit score will have suffered. In some cases, people are sophisticated enough to use the forbearance that's out there for credit cards. Many people don't know about this, and some of them are getting penalties for missing credit card payments. Cycle that keeps feeding and pushing people further into this place. Exactly. It spirals out of control in the problem is, as you mentioned on unemployment insurance claims while we did see the rebound that everyone expected. That we found has slowed and the last three months we've seen progressively lower job creation a build up of people who are now permanently unemployed as opposed to people reporting that they're temporarily unemployed and for African Americans the labor market is now turn back to its discriminating itself and I was Gonna ask about that I mean. This is hitting a blacks in America and Latinos harder than whites. This is a big question and a lot of it is structural but can you give a concise answers to why? Well there's clear discrimination labor market. So the unemployment rate last month for high school dropouts. was lower than the block an appointment. That's the depth of the discrimination that black workers space that their unemployment rate is higher than the unemployment rate of high school dropouts of this nation. LemMe ask when it comes to children child poverty. Is that a recent study by the University of Chicago, Notre Dame found that black people and kids have been hit so hard if we can't turn things around what is life like for those chiltern. The real tragedy we know that spells of poverty permanently scarred show because they fall behind on so many dimensions and that's why it's necessary that we stop this economic pain.

"We're going to get you to travel back in time q the dream sequence music. Tell us about your earliest beauty memories as a child, my earliest beauty varies. Okay. So we we didn't grow up with a lot of money. So I, didn't necessarily have a lot of makeup growing up. So I actually remember it by might earliest memories for all diy is like legit all we were doing my first thing that I ever learned was like Lebanon like using like lemon juice to like get rid of dead skin and things like that. So that was always my thing it was like my sister told me you put a little bit of brown sugar like a half of a lemon and you scrub your body. And it was like really is the best thing. I. I was like Oh. My God I am like a beauty ker because I know how? I felt like I like secret. That's hilarious because I know you're videos like you do so many hacks you've been hacking since like age age I love Ed out really truly and so where where did you grow up? Where was your family living? So we grew up actually in the south in Tennessee so I am like southern it's funny my parents are. Immigrants, where my family immigrated sue from Iraq to America, but my sister and I moan and I were born in. Oklahoma. We moved to Tennessee bet I feel more southern than anything else. Yeah. I. Loved growing up in the south. It's very sweet there. You know it's very I feel like things are a little bit slower but they were very sweet. Also, very simple. Do you have a favorite country music artist Hooda? I feel like everybody likes tonight I train. Some very sad song. It's not true. It's true. Little E bickering I. I know that you know you didn't really vocal and talked openly about like not fitting in feeling like you didn't fit in as a kid in your hometown like, can you tell us about that because like so many people can relate to that yeah, and I think it's like sometimes it's a matter of like the way you love. Just like you know feeling different and for meal is kind of both of those things so. We grew up in a pretty much, very small town violinist city actually when I was in university but group in town my entire life pretty much. So it was always like very, very small, very intimate, but it was also you know very white and I always felt like an outsider one because my parents we always have a lot of money in my dad always tried to put. His better parts of the city and so it was like you know when we were living in less affluent places or like places that were more challenging it was like I felt more like I said, and then when we moved into places where we could go to better schools, it's hard. Sometimes I definitely felt like some kids to be really mean it was definitely probably not like I feel like. My child is actually I don't have very good memories than I don't like going back in time. It's funny because people like let's take a trip down memory lane. I'm like I don't want to you know I feel like all of those things that I worked through were actually shedding all those those like those beliefs that I had about myself. I had so many really like sad like endow for bots about myself like pretty much to about twenty six you know so I actually don't come. Very much I don't like it. We'll do it I don't watch. A lot of people I think can relate on this topic and we did have a question from one of our listeners and our private facebook chat room. Her name is jasmine shuttered jasmine and she said, hey, jasmine who says she has a question for you. She said as a fellow by cultural Iraqi I really wonder what it was like for her to grow up between. Two cultures and weather. She's felt any cultural pressure or received any backlash when becoming such a prominent figure as she had to make any sacrifices adopt herself is it something? You're strategic about? I. Totally. Get why. That's such an important question because we live my sister, it was really profound for me. It was like I felt like I was living my life forever like this. We don't like it was it was I'm not what I think I. Am I'm not what you think I. Am I think you see Cayenne and that's the truth you know. It's like it's we have these thoughts about what people think about us where people expect from us and we live according to that I remember seeing my parents and I remember seeing the way that they were living I just remembered not wanting to do a lot of things that they were doing and it's just it's hard especially when you become a popular person in your person in the public eye. Like living according to people like their opinion, you will never win and so at a certain point, you just have to think about what's more important. That's always going to probably be important but what is more important to you? It's important to think about like who do you who's living your life like whose life is it and yeah, it's not easy to kind of make that sacrifice. Think about like. Well, I'm going to go full force of make the decisions that I want and yeah, and deal with the backlash and try to turn it off to ignore those people. To not give them. You know it's really hard. It's not easy to do sometimes I literally I've I remember spending like I did this didn't connect to my phone for like a week and I was like you know what if it's important, somebody will

"Yeah. So today we're discussing Michelle. mouton. A woman. We've this is this the first time we've discussed a woman on the show. This might be the first episode dedicated to a lady. which is a bit embarrassing. I would say so yeah. But no better woman to start off this trend with and Michelle. She is easily one of the best rally drivers ever. She's a beast. So I'm really stoked that we can tell the story even if it took us a little while to get to it, that's on us but but it's interesting because motorsport is really one of the sports where women and men compete against each other as true like she's not the best. Female driver ever. She's one of the best rally drivers at. Yeah. Regardless of gender she's one of the greatest. and honestly like just watching a video of her rally driving makes me sweat. Over, yeah she's like she's the person who when we talk about. Like rally cars now are all-wheel-drive. Wheel drive. But when Audi showed up with quattro and just started smoking everybody that was Michelle. Meantime that was young Mouton Bay. mouton on the track. Yeah I mean. To your point James like drag racing of course is or was kind of dominated by women at one point all the force sisters were just tearing it up. There's really no reason. For it to be separated by gender in in Motor Sport Really of course right now there's the there's the W. series, which is a like a women's open-wheel series. At I think that's more for them to kind of get exposure and it proved themselves in like a formula car but I'm looking forward to seeing some of those drivers come up in the formula. One. Soon hopefully, it would just make it more interesting for crying out loud if nothing else I agree let's get into it a. all right. Let's fired up.

Thank you, Joe, unlike many drivers whose family have a history in the sport returns family made a living growing roses and jasmine for the perfume industry mouton spent her youth skiing doing ballet and excelling in school. But just beyond the flower fields sat the mountain. Stages used for local rallies and wouldn't be long before the engine notes trickling down into the valley beckoned to Michelle mcgann discovered her love of cars at fourteen years old when she would steal her father. Pierre's Citron to seavy and take it out for joyrides. Quote for me at the time a car always meant freedom and independence she said but driving wasn't something she could possibly see a future in it for anyone to envision that path for mere enjoyment to making something your life's purpose but you could argue this especially from. Models for women on the racing stage were few and far between. So after graduating high school Bhutan took up odd jobs working as a ski instructor, a Care Assistant in a home for the disabled and eventually at her father's insurance company until she began studying to be a lawyer but something unexpected would quickly put an end to that career path her entry into a competitive rock and roll dance contest.

Now if they can do that every single weekend this team is really like it has all the weapons that it takes to be a fantastic team which made me. Made me Ponder the fact that there's some teams that you just expect to lose and then there's some teams that you expect to win like the team's you expect to when you expect the steel real attacks right now. You expect the Cal you expect to win. You don't expect the Lions or the Bangles or the Browns. I mean the low-hanging fruit, you know, you don't expect those teams to win. So when they have when they have rosters long, the Browns have their own turning into a team that you they should be winning with what they have. So it sounds to me that the Browns are basically like if you're looking at it from a fantasy league point, it's the guy in league who basically cheese his way to get the best team because everybody else is internet either sucked or they were on auto draft or they forgot there was a draft right? That's the guy in the if you're equating it to a fantasy team roster birth. Okay. Number one. I liked it. You know I prematurely said shut up about the Cowboys cuz I thought you were going to say that you expect them to lose and I like that you're saying that you expect them to win because that's what you do you absolutely suck. Oh you that's what we do problem. That's where we are a we are an elite Lord team. Anyway, that's what you're going with I am. Well, I don't know the baker Mayfield is still a shitstain to me so good for him rallying his team. He's still a shitstain. I do love his Progressive commercials their home like the latest one. Yes. They are the latest one where he's like. Oh, it's getting ready to rain. Help me cover the furniture. And two guys like you mean the stance he's really good in those commercials. If you could only be as good a quarter as he is in those commercials. We would be set the dog pound would be set. Well, we are you a dog pound or now. I mean, I you know, I have a soft spot for the Browns just cuz they always lose. And ever since that movie came out draft day with Kevin Costner yet. Oh, I'm out. I'm done with you. done with you Amy. Your brown spot is showing. I know I know you know, I just I'm weird that way I don't understand it. Either it is I don't either try to figure you out every day and I just you know, I do too and since I'm like, oh I get myself today and then sometimes I'm like now he's nope don't understand myself today, but that's okay. That's most of us as well. Amy. So rest assured you're not in Company by yourself. I think it is twenty-twenty it is. Okay. Well that's sad because now Joe burrow Hollow be his name Falls 200 and two. Yeah, it does and but you know what this guy he's he's a good quarterback. He is is there he should be in his helmet I think time to get mr. Guys. Sometimes he tries to carry his offense which isn't great because then he gets pummeled by pencil like he got pummeled last night several times. Well, you sure. Why does LSU brain sure what he's trying to win? And I totally get it. But at the same time he needs careful because you know, oh, he's a starting quarterback in the NFL. Well getting them know and you just see a lot of what he was doing at LSU that worked and I think you know like every rookie has this learning curve right where you come out transition from college to the big leagues and it's like, oh, okay, it's funny cuz I was like really different style of football right? I said to Bruce last night. I'm like, surprised that they just threw this guy in the deep end. I mean they just started. Oh totally, I mean, they didn't granted he dangles. What else do they have? I'm. That's the problem. They don't have anything else but you know like places in my where to get backing up Fitzpatrick that makes sense. It makes sense for him to kind of, you know way into the NFL same thing with Dwayne Haskins, you know, he he was back up for a while until he kind of learned his name. Yeah, now Joe girl, man. They just threw him in the deep and they're like here you go, bro, you go bu. Yeah. Well, you know what gotta he is trying I mean, he's playing his ass off out there. No he is but he is and that's why I'm like super team Joe burrow like we gotta do this man. Like I'm telling you. It's the stogie. We'll do it get this guy that mean that you're a Bengals fan know how fucking no. No, I like. Oh bji in a Browns fan. I like Joe burrow Ina Bengals fan, you know, I will always bleed silver and blue Amy. That's the only color I would leave home. Anyway, let's move on to the Chiefs. Okay, love us and Pat Mahomes you love some Andy Reid do that cheaper mofo back, right? So Andy Reid's big old windshield mask that he had on. When was it last week? I can't remember. Yeah. We're only in week to segregated windshield wipers. Yeah, so people were like what the hell and so like it was fogging up. You couldn't see shit, but this may be a thing. This may be a thing coming to a coach near you because off on the first Sunday of the NFL season when this happened several coaches were seen either one not wearing masks or to not wearing them properly because the mask police were out and the league is not going to stand for that. It's currently vice president of football operations. Troy Vincent issued a memo this week saying protocol requires all individuals with bench area access including coaches and members of the club medical staff to wear face coverings at all times failure to adhere this requirement will result in accountability measures being imposed against offending individuals and or clubs. However, Amy, there is no word on what those accountability measures will be so that to me that phrase is what kind of sticks out to me. What does that mean? do you do find them? Probably I mean you can look dead. Here's the thing. They're coaching on the sidelines of talking into Mike's they have to be able bird they have to be able understood. It's really hard for all of the to happen on your face plus all these guys are around each other all the time. They're all you know, I practiced together around the field. They're hitting each other all in each other's faces, you know, I mean and how many people have tested positive since the start of season one? Yeah. They did a very good 2700 players so very good job with with that right off because like you said, they've been implementing measures. They've been following the rules, you know, they've been testing a lot, you know, we got into this, you know leading into this actual season. Jeez, how many coronavirus updates that we talked about on this podcast about hey, this is what the League's doing. This is what they're making them do kind of thing. So something is clearly working. It's really great to see that that's positive news that you know that they're only seeing that wage. Chat, I think I that they should I really think they should go with a handy read mask to be quite honest can still see the coaches face. The microphone can kind of be up underneath it. So they may be able to understand what the coaches saying and and you're shielded. You know, when somebody comes up to your face, you know, I mean, think that that's fine but having to wear them like when it's just, you know covering your face in your nose again, like it's hard for me to understand people when they're wearing a mask and talking to me. Yes, I mean, so imagine imagine being on the field the quarterback coaches saying the guys in booth coordinators up in the booth are trying to understand what the guys on the field coordinators on the field are trying to say, I mean, it's just it's a it's crazy. So it's a shitshow you gotta be able to walk. You gotta be able to your job. I would take that looking like I've got the windshield of a Camry in front of my face the whole time vs Lee having something on my mouth cuz that's frustrating me. Yeah. Give me the telephone number. Windshield all day long over the you know, suffocating face masks which by the way speaking of Tesla. Did you see that their reports of some them being janky like getting like parts that were like really cheap shity on some of the Tesla's that were falling apart marvelous. I know so yet twenty-twenty doesn't happen. Just wanted to put that in there for you. All right coming up next in offsides, you know fall like we said is upon us. Although you wouldn't know here in Texas. It's still like an anus outside but here's something for your home that will make it fall feel less anus e okay Mom handles some new ones that are coming out and they're actually already out and we'll explain to you with those candles our next. All right, let's get into offsides and we've got some candles to tell you about so Amy, yeah, you know football's back. So if you want to get a little piece so that game day experience at home along with fall. This might work. Okay. I know you love candles. There's a company that's owned by Anheuser-Busch call Babe wine. They just created three football scented candles one smells like an artificial turf field. Okay one smells like a Nachos not bad and one
Tenet Grosses $150 Million Worldwide
"I'll tell you what your pet project that you've been working on for years. Grosses $146 million the first couple of weeks. It's on sale. I'm a pretty good day, right?

That's chump change for a U. S and Canada movie premiere. But with a pandemic still raging, experts say, 10 it did Okay. Professor Arun Sharma from the University of Miami says there are two lessons from the last couple of months and movie premieres. First. Some movies are just better off, premiering on streaming on ly. If it's a Children's movie, the data is very clear Launching. It is a good idea, which is why Disney plus just released Mullan on its platform for $30. A charm. A says there's not a lot of data on how movies for grownups do with a streaming premiere, which leads to lesson number two. If it's not a kid's film, pushed the release date back because most movies aren't going to be highly anticipated, helmed by acclaimed directors and plenty of films that are all that have still pushed back. Your reputation precedes you. After admit I wasn't expecting an invitation back. That's right. Top gun fans that waited over 30 years for a sequel are gonna have to just wait one more until 2021. Frank Patterson is a president of Pinewood Atlanta Studios where Marvel movies air filmed right now, production is on. Ly resumed at around 30% capacity there. But Patterson is cautiously optimistic, he says the industry constantly weathers challenges. Actors, dropout deals die. You know, our pivot skills are legendary in the movie business. There's optimism out there 10. It cost $200 million to make and has so far grossed close to 150 million worldwide, almost breaking even. And these days in Hollywood, that's a good look for opening weekend.

Let me ask him what he thinks. Is, like yeah, just have to make it a conversational. Conversational piece I love that.

"Our listeners writing questions about their life whether it's like love or career or body, and then we give them advice. Right. Yeah. I'm probably going to give them advice that I haven't taken myself. We do every day. Always bad. So it's fine. Okay. So our first question comes from anonymous. She says, there's this guy that I've been casually hanging out with the last few months although he claims that quote modesty is super sexy. He always sends me thirst trap picks from the gym and shirtless Selfie is sometimes even nudes I always wonder how many people he's sending them to what I personally don't send them in return is he trying to get my attention or does he just want attention help? Who? Do. You have. Have you ever had any guys just send you countless picks of their PECs at the gym and you're like I did not. I will be very, very honest with you until Anthony. I have never wanted photos from our guys like. In. All honesty. It's just crazy out. I don't WanNa see by like hosing selfie in the Mirror Lake. That's a no for me. I don't like the like puckered lips cell phone like don't want it. I'd rather you make a goofy face and I got hung out to me or something like that or like show me something cool or videos of you talking. But like all honesty, I don't really it when I see too many pitchers like that and shows me that they're like way to end to themselves. That's one thing that really attracted me to anthony as like he is not like. He. May Be like all about his body and focusing on like he's in tip top shape and also the people that he works with but he doesn't show it on his instagram. It's not like flaunting all day. So I had to dig deep to see how fine he was. That's good. Though that's good I. liked it. That's my thing. Here's that that he wasn't the tight to send like weird creepy photos. We are all dating and married to norm call them normies just normal people and it is the recipe for success. Harvey they can be exceptional normies but there. Is definitely the top of what he does have. Normal in a sense of he's not in the whole acting or modeling. I Love Model. Sorry we can be friends but I. Model models not going to work models. It's super of schedules and stuff to and then I don't want to compete with you like especially if like yeah. Now there's challenge male ego I duNNo. Can't be with a man who cares more about what they look like the new no, there's. Something really weird about like. Taking Serious Selfie is just in general. Mud Thing I do like I do like the guy that does take good care of US Yeah Yakkers Oh. Yeah. because there are some that are like more of the Selfie type like don't do anything to take care of themselves at all, like don't go to the gym. Joe like eat healthy and Mike. I'm just like I can't deal with that either like it's very motivating being with anthony just because I'm able to bounce off Oh your little gym videos. It's very cute. My agents are like we love it but he's covergirl pasta. It's called balance. All Right Jack all right next question another anonymous she says my sister and I are three years apart she's twenty five and I'm twenty two. We are constantly fighting and getting under each other's skin and it's getting to the point where friends are getting annoyed the only WanNa, hang out and go on trips with US separately I want to have a good relationship with her but we never click how do I make this stop or will it get better with age? Your sister. I will say that sisters are either your best friends on the entire planet times or they're your biggest enemy and they can you can fight with them and have raging feelings towards them like you don't have with anyone else. because I think the love runs very deep it's almost like a it's like I only fight with one other person like that. It's my husband because I love him so much. So I will say cherish cherish what you have because not everybody has a sister and not everybody knows what it's like to. be a woman be raised by the same people and have the same sort of like bond like that. So don't get up like it's really hard and you're probably very different people and it's Ok to slip in and out of being close and not but There's times when I feel like the only person I have is my sister and that's who I turn to for everything. So it can be something. So magical, it's like I don't know a lot of it's just communication till like just air out that Shit don't let it just don't let it. You know getting those massive fights. Yeah. I'm like, I completely agree with you but I will also say I have fully like tried to fight my sister and number one the words choice that you've ever to play don't go my route. Had to break it up I. Definitely lost. I don't think I've ever publicly said that but she. Really. Yeah. I will say my sister is one of like she is the first person I'd call when anything happens She definitely gets it. It's always like I will literally argue with my mom or my dad and I'll be like a mom is driving me nuts today and she's like Oh my God up it's yours to. This time or what is it a dad say this time and I'm like Oh my God I can't deal with your brother but. Like we always and especially now I feel like the older we get the closer we get. The, conversations that we have are. Spherical I do not have better conversations with anyone else but her and. Also. To chime in on like the friend thing it sounded as if they're sharing the same friends they definitely need separate friends. Yeah. Because you can't talk shit to your friend about your sister and then she's GonNa talk to your sister about you talking Shit. Friends not home when you guys.

Comments or like my captions or whatever, and like people going back and forth, and like honestly I was also dealing with being single and just like not really caring what guys thought.

Do you like how small you are? Why are you working and I'm like that's still bullying guys even like you're still bodies. even though I'm small. So it's like. I don't know I. Just try to help find eat pasta enjoy lives not really look into it too much and you're like. Being naked by. Not. Making. Her like I liked showing off my body. So it's like if you're GonNa talk, I'm going to give you something to talk about. Kicking, talking. We you know you not. There's not just dental floss bikinis on your instagram. You have been using your voice and your power and all this fan base to stand up during the black lives matter movement in such a huge way What has it meant for you to be a part of that and then be front and center on this cover during this time. For me it is an incredible feeling My Dad is black my mom's German. I've grown up in a biracial home I've grown up in South Carolina where it's nothing but confederate flags and very like it's just like you grow up in the for what I felt like kind of in the heart of it still because there are so many people that are just so blinded by some people that act like it doesn't happen in their homes and in their cities and I I just feel like everybody seeing a lot more because we record it and because their social media and stuff like that but it's been happening for years it's been going on for hundreds and thousands of beer it like it's just it's I don't know it's really painful but at the same time, it's a powerful up powerful feeling for means to be able to be on the cover I think it's incredible when women who are used to being seen and not heard like models that was really their their job description for so long I think it's incredible to see someone like you who's a model who's who's posing in bathing suits who's sexy to also be really active about something as serious as lack lives matter movement and I, and I think that this moment in time is making it. So almost inexcusable if you don't use your platform for these moments, even if you are a model yes. So I think I definitely can chime in on that the biggest part for me has always been, and this was before me screaming as loud as I am now about black lives matter is to find a way to have a voice and that was my real reason for getting on instagram began with was to like show the behind the scenes show those things because we are models that are just on a cover or people aren't really reading their like flipping through or scrolling through So I've I've always tried to find a way to use my boys and this just touches at all. I it. I have like, I. Literally Gone Out and gone to marches. Look my friends I've watched my friends go to these protests and dealing with the fact of black nose dropping and. Not being able to communicate with each other letting each other know like make sure that you right a phone number or emergency numbers on your arm and marker things to carry with you. Just we've had so many crazy conversations going on the front lines together trying to do things that we can to help and give back sitting at home, and literally all of us pulling out our. Phones at the same time and going through petitions in reading about things doing research I think it's just a time where this generation especially as louder and I love being a part of it I love being able to have a platform where not only do I show you hot photos but I can get your attention and then you're like, okay. But remember Brianna Taylor still doesn't have justice. Bears so many things. I think that people kind of turn off their phone or turn off their TV and don't pay attention to, and I was guilty of doing that at like a young age. But I'm now twenty nine years old I'm like I can't sit around and be silent. I can't be silent for myself for my family for my niece and nephews for my future children, right? From my best friends, just anything like I live in.

"Our guest today is the super model of our generation born in Germany and raised in South Carolina. She is front and Center bitches on this year sports illustrated swim cover Miss Golden Barbie was named rookie of the year last year in two thousand nineteen and she has appeared in Book Vogue Italia is Italian Italy vogue British Vogue Vogue Russia row Vogue Arabia. Love. Allure CR fashion book Esquire Glamour G., G. Q. Interview, and like every other magazine that exists and walked in some of the most important runway shows in fashion. She is incredible we her style. There's so much need to talk to her especially about the fact that has she ever worn a bathing suit that has a bum these welcome to lady Gang Jasmine Sanders. Okay. Okay you guys. First of all I have to say something I've never seen a more perfect face on zoom. It's not fair. Make you I have to say better than the best introduction I think I've ever gotten in my entire life so Come with me everywhere. Like bows amazing. Jasmine. When did you look in the mirror and realize that you're being hot? So, my. What a great first question. We want know what? We've never had that moment. You are all beautiful do not have their. Six and. Twenty like I had the whole duckling experience I also got braces I wanted to say that was my junior year in high school. So that was quite experience because I felt like I had already kind of blossomed a little better than I did the Mike. And then out of nowhere, my dentists hit me with brace space out of nowhere and I was like things aren't bad enough. Weight to throw that out me I'm trying like struggling to graduate and everything I. I had bigger issues to worry about So yeah, I don't know. Okay. So my knowledge of the sports illustrated cover I believe it to be true that you shoot you go down you shoot all around the world and no, there's no set up where they're like, okay girls this is the cover they shoot everything and then they look at all the photos and. Decide what is the best photo we took Yeah for me I think that you are absolutely right. We all go in there. We have absolutely no idea if our images are going to be used as the cover we shoot maybe like I want to say I shot probably fourteen or fifteen swimsuits and you may not even see all of the ones that we shot. A lot of the images like you get all of the images online but you don't get all of that and the magazine as well. So you have to really be in tune with the website and the magazines to make sure you get a bit all of the behind the scenes, all of the stuff from their instagram, all of that but you have absolutely no idea the second that you're shooting you're just like, let me give each bathing suit my all because I've never know which one they're gonNA pick and it could be one where may be your least favorite. But then you see it and you're like, you know what that I? Should've trusted MJ and I honestly I always just like put my all in that everything that I do. But like this shoot I really was like, let me go above and beyond and maybe by fingers crossed, this could happen and we it is very rare that they shoot more than one model together or us even laughing with our travels. So we the girls I think all of us were kind of just excited like, okay. We get to shoot together maybe they're doing something exciting inside the magazine or like going to do a different type of spread in the in the internal I don't know what I'm saying I'm like rambling. In the pages but. It is it ended up being on the cover and I think all of us freaked out just as much like I. I was completely shocked and I was definitely not thinking that we were GonNa have. To covers each which is really crazy. It's insane. Now I read that and I knew we we knew we loved you but we knew we loved you more when I read an article that your prep for the sports illustrated shoe was Pasta Tequila Oh my God. Yes. God bless you the first year, my rookie year I really like buckled down and try to make sure that I was like in tiptop shape. I wanted my body to look its best like I've always been into sport. So it was never like, Oh my God. Let me lose weight to make sure that I look good in this issue and I'm skinny enough for whatever sports illustrated swimsuit all about like. In power and confident beautiful women who are all shapes and sizes. So for me this year I was just like you know ed I worked my butt off last year I was super toned I for myself I felt like I looked my best that I've ever loved but I was like let's try a more one. Manley curvy by and Mike just be happy from within and not really care. What not not care what? I look like on the outside but just like go with it and there was for me I was like I wanna I, WanNa eat things that make me happy. I. WanNa drink and have fun with my friends. I want to celebrate this moment because now it's not me like really trying out or feeling like I'm trying out now I'm part of the family. So I just I just wanted to enjoy enjoy the full experience of being there with the grouping there with the photographer. And videography as and the entire sports illustrated team because I'm just one that lives like you cannot take it for granted like even though I'm on the cover today, something could hit the fan tomorrow and people not like me..

"However This group of guys that I think are cross fit girls have decided at the place that they're going to work out is right outside my door between my door and the garage, and there is no other way for me to get from door to the garage going through their entire setup of a workout, and it's literally a fucking obstacle course to try to. Get through there. They don't stop working out when I tried to get through. They don't say, sorry they just continue on with the running and jumping all over me workout and I don't know what to do. Jack Don't shame them for being fit. They can get fit ten feet away in the grassy. knoll. But they've decided to get fit in my one walkway. The grass is. I mean I understand it's not fair. They at least stop when you're trying to walk through mill. They're literally doing sprints back and forth and like Oh jumping lunges and I have to decide at what time I'm going to try to walk through and get around them. That's under their huffing and Puffing, Oh, you're couvin breath and I'M On the droplets dropping I don't want your droplets to drop on me. Yeah. I, understand it wasn't even worth it's not even worth doing anyway. grinds Mike. Curious grinds her I. Love. I love when you use that term because it's like so not a millennial term. grinds my gears looks. It's like what my mother would say. Okay I'll go next I found the greatest instagram account who ever at Kelty. No. Certainly not. So I this is very out of out of character for me but somebody posted something the other down a story and it was like a not an inspirational quote more of like a Sarah Puta call. Quo. Therapeutical yes. And it's from this account colors of Austin counseling? A group therapy practice and I guess they're based out of Austin I have no idea who they are but they post some really incredible things in my favorite thing that really resonated with me this past week was. A graphic that says sorry I didn't text you back I forgot will I forgot his scratched out and it says some days communicating with others feels overwhelming I am letting go of self blaming judgment I am choosing to protect my energy and take the space I need. Oh because I have crazy anxiety about texting people back when I don't want to. Welcome to my world babe just don't text him back. I've been living that forever I know. I and she was certain extent I completely I can do about friends that you should people I love Yeah I love there's people. I love that will text me and it's not even personal. It's just like I don't have the energy right now and I also that's not my preferred way of communication because it's it's weird because here's the thing if you're not on a phone call like you're texting, but then you're like texting and also doing something else at the same time. So it's like interrupting your real life to have a text conversation with someone it appeared like. So anyways, I've been having a lot of anxiety during Cova 'cause a lot of people have time to tax and check in whatever. So I, really like this account, they have a lot of really good things like a like that but it's colors of Austin, I don't know who you are don't take a colts. Thank you. It probably is for existing in the world now ready for my. Job. Week it's revolting. I was on a walk and I was on the beach. We've been at the beach with our families for a while and it's just been so nice and its way to decompress to walk the beach myself listening to podcasts listen to music. I'm walking and I'm like, oh, just feeling like really good and feeling really happy for the first time in six months and. Walking and walking, and this woman comes up in there to like medium size Labrador and like a golden retriever and they're like gallivanting along the beach with no leashes on because it's very empty and I'm like Oh. My God how amazing and the dogs are wrestling with each other and then they're like one of them sniffing the butts and then one of. Those two P and the other one puts its head under the stream. To start drinking. Oh Oh. Damn. I've never ever heard of that happening. I've never seen it happen and I spent a lot of time dog parks and I was just like, Oh my God this is so gross and like weirdly sexual and. Talks. I also like showers but like how do you re thank You can't. You can't drink the ocean water. It's too salty. So like actually a really smart dog, it's true but I feel like he is also he's also salty. Yeah. But you can exist on your own for like a week. Is that true? Yeah. That's how member the guy that got caught in the cave drink on come on. God survival on one that is did the dog was at a long like a long pro Catching people having sex I felt like I needed to look away and then I like looked at the parents of the dog do yeah. The woman had on sunglasses so I couldn't tell who she was looking at what she was looking at and I didn't want to be. Judgmental, but it was just really weird and it really it really kicked off my morning in a weird weird five. That's really weird. That's a new one. Yeah. So showers cold talk di Golden retriever gold shot worse. Bad Week. So I've been very excited about my lettuce grow. Thing I got I know have you I. Hadn't seen the seventy five stories you've done for. For Free No. You paid over yes. She did no I got it for free at the grammys like her being at the grammys or whatever. But then I I'd let us grow gave it to you. I think they gave it to me like in a gifting suite but I have to buy all the pods and stuff like it's not like this is not a sponsored post. No, you give them so much love. Well, it's kind of amazing and so my friends Sarah also, well, like a lot of people are starting at them on now and my friend Sarah also has one and so we've been like really talking every day. About like our Ph levels like an her and hers is incredible. She has Zucchini leaves that are bigger than her hat like and I was like, how much sun are you giving her a day? Just like I got the Dolly wheeling around like whatever. So I had her in mind on one spot and gruesome chart, and that's it. Everything else died then I moved it up on my cousin maybe it'll get more sun here. I was able to grow like two tiny butter lettuces. And that's it and I was like, all right. It's not getting enough son. So I, took it apart this week and I moved it up to my balcony off my bedroom because there's less shade and it'll get more sun. This is so boring but. Now killed three complete rounds of lettuce grocery. Plant them, and then they die like I am the. Worst Gardner of because hydroponics is like super easy. You check.

Beth welcome on the show. Thanks Josh. Great to see you great to be here. And our other guests is Jasmine crow who is the CEO and founder of Gooder, which is a company that I am fascinated by I. think it's one of the more insightful companies that I've come across. Recently I also have a lot of questions for you Jasmin about how the idea came to you, but but welcome on the show. Thanks so much gas and happy to be here. Of course, we've got Freddie caressed my co host. Zeroed IPO your morning Josh, how you doing good I bet and Jasmine, nice to see you. Thanks for joining us today I'm super excited about today. Yeah me too good to see you. Well, let's dive right in because we have a lot to talk about Jasmine I wanNA start with you and I want to understand I want our audience to understand where you're coming from. When you started gooder there's some kind of basic facts that I want our audience to understand domestically we are wasting seventy-two billion pounds of food every year while forty two million people are struggling with food insecurity absolutely that's a foundational mess. And it's even worse. Now, I'll of everything that's happening with current virus who are wasting more food and more people are going hungry. So it is a huge issue. Yeah. I mean just to be clear before this even. I read somewhere that we were wasting about a quarter trillion dollars a year on food in the United States if people number eight is that right? Yeah. Right Frederick in. So I guess to put an even more simpler context about two percent of GDP is on wasted food for that's a lot of money spent on food that never gets eaten in this country does Like many people I have some passing familiarity with this I. Read about it I don't even know where to start and it seems like maybe you go out and you you know you try to donate food as best you can and and I think that's maybe where you started. Yeah and it transformed into something quite extraordinary. So yeah if you know Josh I started feeding people that were experiencing hunger and homelessness in two thousand thirteen out of my apartment in Atlanta Georgia So that's where got started I found a parking. Lot I drove past it one day and I just saw hundreds of people that were homeless in in something kind of just pulled on my heartstrings at that moment and I said I wanNA help you know what do I didn't have a ton of money and I knew I could cook and so I just went home I post it on facebook I mean Sunday. I'm going to go downtown and I'm going to feed on the streets. If. You want to join me I had about twenty volunteers I made a spaghetti dinner. And loved it. You know brought out my little beats pill at the time, which wasn't that loud outside. Dating us, you're dating we know exactly when you're store your. Heckling when it happened so I really wasn't that loud music thing. But I have bad and you know the idea was it would be old school kind of Sunday music why Jackson five and Aretha Franklin James Brown like this classic kind of music and a good Sunday dinner, and that's how it all got started in. So of eighty own from one of my pop up restaurants went viral on facebook and people are saying this is so amazing which restaurants donate the food and the reality was nobody I was couponing on price matching I always say, I'm the reason Walmart doesn't price-match anymore I definitely feel like i. gave them a run for him. And then I was cooking thing taking it downtown, serving it coming home cleaning up, and so it would take me like forty hours every week I did this and I started researching food ways and was really like upset like I can't believe this much food goes to waste in here I. Am you know putting together five dollar donations and my own money and trying to make these feeding is happening to feed five hundred people
Ghost of Tsushima: Creative Director Interview (with Spoilers)
"Have a very special guests with us this week that we're both very excited to talk with Jason. Connell from sucker punch. Thank you so much for joining US A. Awesome ear. Very happy to have you of course to go super in depth on Kgo Suma, so for those who are watching end jumping in. Be warned there will be some spoiler fil talking here if you haven't played through the game if you haven't. Checked out everything you want to in the game beforehand. Please do that first and then come back. There's a lot to dive into. We're going to be jumping into as much as we can. Of course if you want spoiler free impressions. We did record episode that a little earlier. Even can go check that out, but. There's so much that we can jump into this game I off. Jason I. Just want to say congratulations for recording this on the day. The game is starting to roll out on launch. Worldwide is already available in some territories as where speaking so congratulations to you on the team on that It's very exciting for to finally be out there as a fan of it and I'm sure it must be exciting for the team. Yes, it's a super exciting to have it out. There cited everybody host their photo mode favorites sin. Just enjoy the Games. I feel like an Brian I think this is true for both you and me. We could probably spend the next forty minutes talking exclusively about photo mode. Yeah, no I. Just get into that very quickly. What you've created, my favorite voted in video game history, but also. You might notice you. Create one of the most not-so-subtle advertising tools. That is perfect for this game. Because every time I seen pictures of it I WANNA? Play it again, and I think for a lot of people who were just sort of like on the outside, looking in a video games in general like people who aren't just totally head down on stuff all the time. They're like wait what that's! That's a video game. Where do I play I play it? They're going to get that so Yeah, that's a very very smart. If you guys it's absolutely stunning game. A cool. Photo of his crazy because we were one of the first, you know infamous second son was one of the first. At least I know of modern games that have put like a like a photo mode in in that game. It was just like this cool idea to show off all the cool particles and lighting. That game was a while known for. But it was wasn't crafted as a personality around. It was the cool photo mode, and then over time over the last few years. You have these games that out and Spiderman my favorite of version of this where they like adds the flavor of their game to its photos like tied to the personality of that gain. On, the building tops, doing like little cell fees and Doing it with a phone. That was awesome made it. You need to spiderman so when we were like. Hey, what are we gonNA do for voter mood? To? Whatever the ghost photo mode. One, it's gotta be way better than our first one because. Our, follow up one and two. It's gotta be semantically. You know connected to the game, so we're like. Well motion in Wind I. Haven't we like? Make it less about a static image. You can do that, too, but have be about moving frame that I think is so beautiful about our game kind of spun out from there. I didn't think it was odd that you give the main character, a Selfie, stick and the iphone. His drone that goes along with. Little you know little out of place, but I thought butyl. Oh God you know it's been incredible thing to play around with, and you can do what Brian said. Every time I see more of it. It's one of those things where I've been playing every night. Still in, it's like Oh, no, I need to go jump back in the middle of the day. Because like Oh. That's a great spot I never thought. I could take a photo of I've been a particularly obsessed with going to bamboo strike locations and trying to get all the great photos. I cannot have those spot often. You know like perfectly placed at an edge or something. I sort of wondering. Because obviously this was built more with like the photo mode in mind as you development went on, because it's become so much bigger, what was world creation influenced at all by the photo mode, or were there any aspects of designing this game that were influenced by it because it is more like prevately used feature these days I guess than back when second came out. You know. A little secret you know we. We always knew we'd have a photo modem. We knew that this ambitious version of like I. said a second ago better and more dramatically connected. Owning, really work on it until pretty late, so you know we were so. Dedicated to the stories in crafting the world, so when it came to the beauty of the world. That add add everything that's in the game. I would have to imagine that that had the most iterating over anything, because it's one of the first things you do before you have the whole story articulated and put into the game. Certainly don't have cut scenes. You know it's like you're laying out terrain and at that like how does the island look and then it gets into the direction the feeling Cutting, trees down growing trees, making procedural tools like the world is the by far the most iterative on thing now. There was a point where we're like. This is how we make our game. Look good clearings. Big giant swath of like in forests, you know that you can see for miles. Off using color as like landmarks again, the Golden Forest, or read flower fields, and then, and then a you know, certainly that sort of made its way into some of our features of a photo, but the the world designed stuff. took the lead on on end photo mode. Okay, now that we've created this amazing awesome place. How do we utilize the photo mode in like critical photo that will. Take advantage of how great our team at did at creating a beautiful world. I think one of my favorite things about this game is the sort of balanced that it's constantly striking Between being sort of completely serene, and then the music swells up and swords or out, and they're slashing against each other. How hard was it to sort of get that that tone down because I could see. You know I think in in lesser hands I could be a very kind of dangerous. Push and pull, but I feel like you totally nailed that and I think that that's like some people when they look at an open world game want like nonstop jam-packed activities in in your team made the decision to pull back and let things breath every now and then How did all that come together? Well you know for me. It's the first game that I was certainly a visual director on, and so I I would I you learn something about yourself with everything you create, and for me I personally learned that I don't have a natural tendency to like create incredible. Violence, I just wasn't that was uneven. Favor Games, bloodborne like as absolutely my favorite game. Guide. You're on this show. This is gonNA be worthwhile and. About it anytime. But no, seriously like. That's my favorite game, but. When we were crafting the world would I navigated towards with Joanna. Who's environment our leader? This did this amazing a blog post recently on playstation bar. was the beauty of it was taking taking a moment to breathe in, and then I realized that some of my favorite games that are not. Show the classes certainly embraced the idea of atmosphere in a sense of this and you know I donate Fox's is is resonates. Conversations resonated with him as well so then then the conversation shifted into. Okay well. We definitely have it. We have a summer game. So you know without saying anything else as you say Amer game, you know you're going to be hitting things with a four-foot razor blade so. You know violence is GonNa come so we certainly work on that stuff. allied and we wanted to be great and gritty, and the you know like you really WanNa feel like you have contact when you have contact but the other stuff doesn't come as natural, and you have to actually work on that stuff to balance it out, you really do, and so that means like the idea is about creating Haiku, which was actually named idea You know really. Or believe it was taking a moment to. Allow the beauty to take hold, and not what I think is cool about the ICU that I hope people enjoy about it is is that they're not tied till like progression like you're not. You're not like intrinsically forced to go, do it? You know there's a sense of you have to have the wonder and curiosity desire to do it. It's not like game telling you go do this to reach next level certainly, a lot of that is tied to corporation auto out to have to consider that, but it is. It is a work philosophy to try to get that balance of that contrast It takes years to get right for sure. I really enjoyed the Haiku sections actually He was like you said. It's sort of provided like this. This relaxing breeder and I did like the you were able to select different things who essentially collate them into one kind of fresh Haiku each time. Yeah I I mean I did every single side quests in every single objective in this game, but I I really enjoyed those wow awesome. The accuser, some of my favorite ones to the cinematography. You know it was at the moment to like. You know certainly we call them breathing. Moments definitely say that studio, but it was kind of a moment. Regis Art Geek out a little bit like the people who do the cameras. Mottaki, they can place it in to get the right motion and you know, and then the writers have an opportunity to like. Give you give you a couple of cool options. Just the beauty kinda comes through which is which in the end has been a very positive thing for the experience. Yeah, the balance that Brian was. Speaking to how you were sort of describing how that all came together? I could imagine. It's a very fine line between making sure it's peaceful and calm in certain areas, but. It's still engaging for the player because you could always run the risk of it. Being something that the player doesn't want to engage with, but as Brian. Saying like finding those high coups feels like this wonderful moment of solace after I have assassinated an entire Cam Mongols. And need to reflect on Jin's life, but also just the world I, it's this really great balanced that a I think as Brian was sort of saying you always get in games, but it feels so refreshing to hear. And it's a huge part of our philosophy. How we treat. Treat the game. Whether it's a Haiku great example, he could probably keep talking about, but you know the music style music how the music comes on not having things like combat while you're doing, shrine climbs or anywhere near them so that we can let those be their own experience, and so are these, are we? Everything wanted these features that are not mainline missions. Our conversation is like about how much combat how much non-combat and what is the purpose and what are the? What's the feeling for its existence like what what is the emotional goal for for these features and these are conversations? We have a lot and sometimes triple times over we try. We don't like it. We try something else. Well and for me, what's really interesting is sort of the place that all of these features and the things you go on, have sort of in the context of sucker punches past work, because it is I've been such a huge fan of both cooper franchise and infamous. Stir a year and. You know you get increasingly larger, but often more urban. City expenses that you're exploring a lot. In both of those franchises to certain extent here you're out in the wild. There are of course settlements and encampments and things like that, but there is a there's a lot of stretches where it can just be the world around you that you're exploring and I was sort of wondering on a world design level. How do you? How do you balance? Making all of these locations unique to explore as well and interesting. Even though you know a lot of can just be more, the environment's like what are the challenges that come with that? Yeah, so one of our. Our Contractors Jeff He. He talks a lot about content density, and what is the correct density and I really am really thankful that he brought that conversation up to light so much because It's such a you know Thinking about if you're currently doing something, you're going across the world and run into something. How much further would you have to ride your horse before you might find the next thing, or can you see the next thing from where you currently are? How how dense is it and I really enjoyed that conversation? Because it let us think about what's the right philosophy for for our game and it it certainly it allows us to you know if we want to in one place, you just completed something, and you should be able to generally speaking, look around and find one more thing on horizon or see the shrine trying on top of the mountain. It influence our world design alive, because when we first had the game built for the I you know I'd say maybe two years. It was a lot of forest. It was a ton of trees and it was cool, but you always were felt like you were in this like. Tunnel beautiful, but really deforestation. which does a couple things one is? It is very cool, but. It makes it really hard to know where you are without a compass or many map. Something telling you kind of giving you that extra information that your brain is just really needing. So what we did is we started opening up fields and I definitely some shadow, the classes photos out and was like fields as as reference vm. Because it just feels so epic when you're going through field, but but you know the criticism it could be that it's boring or something like that, and and really have to embrace a philosophy that it won't be boring because there's beautiful music. There's five things now that you can see what you want to do next because you're in a field, there's more clearings and it created a Great beauty in the game, but also more opportunity to engage with that density and I I. Really I think that that was one of the conversations that was ongoing throughout the project, but we landed in a really. I think unique spot for. When when when you? When your team was the helping this game, you obviously weren't anticipating a significant portion of the world's population to be stuck indoors for months on end, but At one I mean there were obviously there. Are you know a lot of sort of like entertainment? Things that have come out during quarantined. That didn't really. Fair as well due to their. SORT, of like the way they were delivered or their subject material something that, but this is a game that I really more than ever appreciated as a guy who's in a two bedroom apartment really appreciated huge open fields and. Mountains in like sprawling rivers and seas and stuff like that but I think one of my favorite things about the big open fields is that there's always something? Or there is like a lone tree. And you're just sort of naturally drawn towards it, and I found that like that sort of like beautiful use of negative space to be like so powerful. In terms of like never felt to me like there's nothing ahead of you. This is boring. It always felt to me like this. Is this is this is like a sort of triumphant use of minimalism and and charging towards something. To reveal that there's like one loan item in the distance was so much more engaging tomato like at a mini map that had a hundred time trials, but Hamas other stuff like I. Found Myself uncovering the dog on the entire map which. I was I was like basically riding around in spirals like in that movie alto like I was trying to. Five is in half the time I was on foot to. It was really wonderful game to explore so I. WanNa ask you about that the. The the sort of the way exploration on unfolds in this game is something I. Really Really Love and I think a lot of open world games are going to take note of following the wind and talking to people and following Fox's two locations rather than just you know overtly stating the player. This is where you're GonNa go, or you go to. The map in this big thing opens up. All that come together. What was the push and pull on that to sort of find the right way to keep players in the no, but without making like overwhelming them with information. Yeah I'll talk about kind of our studio kind of struggles, but I also kind of throw in my own, maybe personal philosophy, too. So I. I judge Games my favorite game, especially them really harshly by. How does it feel if you're? You're actually not doing anything on the sticks. I would if you're just sitting there. Just sitting in the world, you're standing in the world. You're on your horse in the world like is there. Is there a what's the feeling and some of my favorite games by just sitting there? There's like things that go through your mind. Like why do we? What are you anticipating? That are stuck on the story or like. Where's that next objective like you're just what's going through your mind? because. That's when you're not doing anything. That's what you're thinking of next like. You're just taking in the beauty looking around our game I hope that translates into that sense of exploration and sense of curiosity like if you do stop for a second yearly, you're not already on kind of a train of thought it is more. One of curiosity is one of like. Hey, what? What do I want to do next? Oh, there's something over there. There's something of their. Oh, I wonder band before, so they're having gone to could check it out and I. think that the more information you were to have on your screen compasses many maps. It kinda answers those questions before you even have time to ask the question. It's just like the dots right there. Let's go do the DOT. It doesn't matter what the DOT is. It's just there's thing let's go do it, and so that that to me is is a really important part of what I think. The Games, Tries to do in the world, and and certainly we did not have the wind when we started on this project at all. In fact, what the wind was which is has got this cool story I'll say quick is. on the first direction slides on the you know we did. A presentation is like one of the first presentation out the way look and feel and everything moves was was one of them like a wind. We're going to double triple quadruple down on win, and you know there's a lot of attack that has to go into that. He got Capes moving I gala hair moving. You gotta get trees and Bushes, and especially for procedurally generated now artistically procedurally generated world. That's really tough. Two years later. Something like that. That became true and you've standing I'm standing in this world and we had other elements we were helped. Augmenting are kind of navigation and get around the world and I'm just like holy crap. The wind is amazing. It actually works at that time. It always like went from East West or West. East or something I can't remember always just directional and it's just. It's really good. And then we started having conversations like how going to get more stuff off the screen to stay in the is like beautiful world more and more because it's just. It's really stunning even years ago. And a one point I had this idea like. The Wind. It sounds kind of crazy and Adrian is like our longtime worked on has been sucker punch. Long Time. They tried a little quick prototype with me. We had like fifteen people play at were removed all the you I just to hey. Can you just just try to follow it and just and it sounds crazy, but follow in if you can get to that hot spring or that on. And it worked like the first prototype fourteen out of the fifteen people were able to easily get there so cool. Yeah and I. I was like Oh. Yeah, we have to do this. Question. Like. This is something that is going to be unique to the game and then an analyzing. Say on them about the wind because I can do it all day, but is it had like the matic ties to the island in historical kind of. Poetic, Tian's to you know. The Mongols came in as typhoon sweeps them all out to see and. You know we name the sword the sky storm after that you know him being a storm, a metaphorical storm on the island for for the island, rooting for the island, and then it was like about nature, and then the animals came along, and I, you know it just felt like a bunch of like one of these critical pieces you don't know exists, and then you find it, and you're like that fifth straight there and does and then nearly. Oh, I, think we have a good. I can see the puzzle now so. Cool, it was cool journey. Having having that comes away. It all it feels so true to the world that the team has created in those moments. Because you know, I'm I'm a completion is player like if you give me a list of a thousand things to go collect if you give me, you know like an infamous. Charge to go collect I. Collect all of them, but there's something that I think does speak so much to this world and end you wanting to be invested in that. It is really by pulling everything. Out of the screen that you're looking at and just letting you look at the world you get more familiar with it, and you start to learn more about Oh. Yeah, I've taken that pass before. That leads to that pillar of honor or there's that cemetery over there as you start to. Trek across the land. It really gets you invest in the world in a way that I think just having a list or a neon sign to tell you where to go would. Deliver it in the same way. Yeah, that's great. That's so. That's the goal so I'm glad you had that experience. And I it's one of those things you know that the open world I think speaks so well to what the team really accomplish with this game, but one of the things I was curious about wasn't and I know. We talked about this a little bit, but released, but since we can. Talk to the island as whole, but what was the? I? Guess the poll the. The back and forth poll of wanting to make sure you stay true to the spirit of this real world location, and honor the history and the people that are but also create a world that at the end of the day would be fun to run around or write a horse around in as a game. Yeah and it's a great topic, and it's kind of been the the struggle for and I would say struggle in a creative sense. It's the creative. From from from once, we actually knew we were making Susha and we started doing all this research, and and you learn so much about the island. Like the fact that at that time it was likely to be like ninety five percent covered in dense forest. Which again I told you we tried. We tried very dense forest in. It's just hard to ride a fun horse through tree. Trees it's. Pretty tough. Also, it's incredibly hilly. We went there just like it's just hill after hill after mountain after Mount After Mountain, also challenging to create a interesting layouts in combat spaces in so. So, we worked with our team in Japan. We're like hey, this is how we were planning on You know being inspired by the shape of the islands. It looks very similar to the actual shape, but here's some kind of Ford as we'd like to take or game reasons you know, make the game more fun to to roam around. The landscapes in have layouts that have. Have Cool puzzle climbing challenges, or what have you were interesting missions, and and they were totally for it you know. And they gave us feedback of maybe when we went too far and then they also they know is in a fun way. They gave us feedback of win. Hey, you could go further with us, and so that was. It was a lot of ultimately. We're super inspired by history, and what happened and then the general beauty of greater. The greater nature of Japan as a whole, it's definitely hugely inspiring to us but we also make in a game and a PR and original story and a lot of things that. Have to Challenge it, but work in tandem with it, so it's it's definitely been a challenge I'm in a good way and we learn so much. And I will say the last thing I'll say on that. Is that within Joyon on the environment? Our team myself in the constitution. We talk a lot about like realism. And You know like A. Maybe painted realism, or maybe, how can we do it like a slightly stylized version of that? And and and you know this is not even if you've ever been to Seattle only did infamous. It wasn't really a stone by stone. Kind of recreation. Roads aren't lined up exactly. It's sort of like if you blur your eyes, you're like Oh. Yeah, that's definitely definitely Seattle like it rains. A lot of people drink coffee. PUNK ROCK and grunge music. It's You know the things that are there the spacing? Like the things you would expect, but it's not the like. Let's put a magnifying glass over, and let's get it like perfectly accurate and we take that same philosophy here. We want to feel like that. This is plausibly. Dass what it could feel like. That's what if we could do smell through it. That would we would try to. Feeling into music, we're going for a as a is a is a main heart. Smell will actually be unlocked on the playstation six. Thirty I. Have Rumor, we have an today since three. Hey listeners. We know you love gaming and have excellent taste, so we want to tell you about the official. The last of podcast in the show writer podcasters stand up comedian and huge fan of the.

The the combat in this game is awesome, and that's coming from somebody who to be completely transparent. Wasn't crazy about it. At first 'cause my immediate reaction was. There's no lock on. Think what do you mean? There's no lock on like you can't. You can't have a certified again without lock on and as as I grew to. Appreciate. The sort of dynamic happenstance of a dashing between those four stances and. Fighting different types of enemies. In synchronicity while switching and switching back and forth using my sub moves and everything I was like. This is one of my favorite combat systems interview ever But what what? How did how did that decision? Come to not have have lock on? was that was at a debate internally in the studio? Because that's to me, that's one of those things that people just expect from a video game and I found myself not even thinking about it after a few hours in. I. It's definitely debate right like it's A. It was heavily debated and talked about how you know. From all corners of the CEO there was not some like. I mean because it's a it's a standard. There is a standard anytime. You go against the standard. You need to prove it out and. I'm glad we tried something different than you know. As person bloodborne like my favorite game, I like games that allow you to really kind of hone in and focus, and and control that since a control comes, comes with locking, but and you know, and certainly as a samurais sense of control is a huge fantasy so Yeah, man. We talked about it a ton Maybe when it comes to combat, I would say it's in the top three conversations that we had over the entire course of the project while. But I have to give massive. Shout out to you know. One of the studio heads. You know I've found Sucker Punch Christopher. Men he's he's behind the core design, a lot of the combat and he he works out of the code for it, and there's another Guy Ted. Who is awesome designer? And he liked those two brains man. They worked together, and they figured out a way to create something that is first of all feels like you're hitting the person when you do hit them like it's a tandem as animation, so it's not like a hit box based. It's like these. This animation links up to this one. Is I very newbie? Animation Brain. And it's not just like the slash through thing right, and so they feel like you're hitting the person it feels. A goal is a gritty feeling, but it's also incredibly fast paced at times. You know as you get like five or six people around you you can be, you could be like. Changes. In planning, and when you're going to do the smoke bomb, go around the building and do another. Jump down from the top, you know. It's just like a it. Almost like a the style of it is is better with how the walk on. That's kind of the thing that we found over time especially when she became pro at it. And locking on actually with slow down, maybe in some ways and a sense of control will be got out of it instead was things like standoffs in duels, obviously assassinating somebody having that jump on, somebody gives you that, too, but we decided to really push that those moments or mythic abilities I think are. Usually will help take out people pretty quickly. The mythic abilities are interesting because I I think i. I I'm really glad that this game never really went like supernatural despite having the Word Ghost, in the title. There's. There's other there's an alternate version of this game. Were you guys just want preserved and people are summoning dragons and stuff like that. I appreciate that a lot of the crazy stuff that you got away with felt grounded even like the fire sort is ridiculous, but there's like. Oh there's there's sort of like a scientific explanation. Yeah. And then when you start doing some really intense stuff that feels deliberately over the top like dude, get terrified and they starts crawling away like. Is Watching people just straight up running around. Disappear and stuff like that. It's crazy like this is a i. mean even when we pitches his game. This was another heavily debated. Topic is going to be fantasy based or not, and obviously nate and I felt really strongly as well as many other people that we should not make it fantasy base in like high fantasy base because. It really those first of all there's. Several of those games out there already, and they do a wonderful job and I love neo I love sector, Oh, these games are awesome and they lean on that a little bit more as their unique. You know and so. Good. It's smart of us not to do that, but the reason why we didn't do the reason we did was because we were definitely were focusing a little bit more on the Human Story certainly one of the world to feel plausibly real. And you know if you like, I'll take the example. You just threw out there like having people fall in there, but get scared. Scoot away, man if you could just like, pull out a fucking dragon every five minutes. Scares them like I feel like a real challenge to overcome like and so you have to be constrained. So that when we do pull out something that's really incredible or scary or something like that that it actually has wait to it, you know and. I one of the things I do love about our game in might be some of my favorite content, actually mythic missions because. They. A build up the idea that people were legends like they talk about people in their connection to the island. The lightning one is a great example where you know, they burn the black sand, the sands black, which always like wire, the sands black back answer black, and it just bill out as they build up this legend of people that may have come before you, which is Kinda cool because? because. You're kind of building your own legend. To maybe one day, people talk about mythic stories of the ghost You know that humans can do maybe slightly crazy incredible in your living, example of that and people tell tall tales. I think that's cool. I love win. Jin would go around to the stories and people would be like. There's ghosts in the woods and he's like. No, there's not. Watching watching the people run away after a battle, though my favorite things in the game because it's it teeters on like on on like. Comedy, you would find in like vintage Kung Fu movies where somebody would come and kick. A bunch of Bass and one guy would be like away. Runaway ended every single time was I would let him run like maybe like hundreds of feet pull out my arrow. Cruel Man I know you you put it there. You know you gotta sit there, don't. If you give Brian the high ground. He will let them run as far as he wants to. I what I do love going back to the mythic tells them. You know maybe people one day telling the story of the Ghost I. I'm always sort of a sucker for. Stories that are about storytelling to a certain extent, because I do think you get so much of the human nature that we all deal with on a day to day basis of why we tell stories and everything and I I love that that permeates so much of this game, and not just in the quest, but on the on the ques- structure as a whole in this game I think is really unique, but it works really well. Because as Brian was saying earlier, you can go to a house in. Someone's saying Oh. There are nearby. Please help me or someone one of my favorite stories early on one of the side missions I found was. A woman send you to get food from the bandit that stole it from her. And then you bring the food back and she's like. Oh, thanks! I finally have food down. You're like. Wait a second. That wasn't yours to begin with. I just killed all those guys because you can't, there's. There's this. Stark sadness to a lot of the stories that I think really works in this game and I was just curious on like a total storytelling. Horrible 'cause there are moments of levity. You know like everything with Kennedy I think is so great, but how do you you know balance? I think this is a land and a group of people who are under siege. They're under attack by the suppressive force. At the same time. They are living their lives. There's this humanity going on the island. Hugs, what are some of the struggles that come up and try to tell those stories? Yeah, well first of all. When you started telling me, which story were, I was like racking my brain like which? It was so many. I I know it's crazy and I'm gonNA. Play through a bunch probably that I've played through in a long time, I play retail, but. You know It's balanced because you don't want it to be this like we did not want our game to be this like heavy thing that was constantly hitting you over the head with a that was just not what we wanted for this particular game. Think anybody really goes from bad particularly. I think they're always in goal, but but in it's hard, though because invasion and you wanna see desperation, and you WanNa see like these people have struggles. And frankly you know we want to. You know it's not always like dude. Go kill things, and so you WanNa hear you know people having. Their kids, or this or that like our parents like I. Don't know you just want to hear something that sounds like these people are struggling a little bit. But you know the when it comes to the writing and those stories, most of the stories do most of them do exist to try and reflect at the world has been in invaded, invaded place and. For people that are like these allies, and you engage with those those will get a little bit more in depth than traveling of their story, and for these little small one off encounters. Just say look even even the hasn't class is affected greatly by this and hopefully feel a sense of remorse for them or sadness for them, maybe a sense of duty that why you're doing this stuff, but as for the tone of it. I genuinely like a somber tone in general, I think Sambre is is not dark. Sombre is not grotesque. Sambas is just like a like A. Light sadness to things and I felt like that light sadness in a world that is so incredibly. Beautiful is kind of a nice. Balance and I think we look at it now that way and to some extent. That's a really good way putting now that now that you say that. It makes perfect sense because. You have all these incredible like you know. There's Fox's in this you know. Like. Rainstorms the beautiful trees and yellow leaves, but then you go, do these side quests on. You're like Oh. Wow, that was. Your family died and you can save them and you're like damn. That hit me hard that one. Particularly, there was one side quest for like now I know, too. Hard that one's talents so hard and You know there that one people on on the team who? Created that one, and then like you know as we get through the Polish face like Alan, somebody went through and added a bunch of extra work to that one for animation, and like kneeling down, and you know I you know in from liking that mission to really like connecting with more, and this is a small thing right like this is not a. Two hour long you know big big mission. It's very straightforward and simple cement to just reflects the tone of the world, a little bit and Alan Dow was one of the ones that, even though it's a small moment in your entire through I think improved a lot of the last course of the project I'm glad it exists. That's awesome. Yeah, I I, don't even know if I necessarily have a question about it, but I'm just curious to hear more about the the construction of the the site quests when it comes to the side tails when it comes to those the supporting cast that you get because I do I do think one of my favorite things. Throughout sucker punches, history has been that there is of course he usually a pretty great main character, but also this really great supporting cast as well, and you know going back to sign infamous now with ghost. I loved finding out more about Yuna and lady Moscow and just everyone at the pace that you want to in the world. And that balance I guess my question is because I. do think that's some of my favorite story. Telling him the Games in the game comes from those lines. How do you balance having this stuff? Be Optional I guess if you if a player just wants to go through the main story, but also encouraged people to want to keep going back and revisit these stories in these characters. Yeah Yeah! It's a question you know we From I is long as I can remember. I think I, think earliest pitches of the game we talked about. How we really wanted to create sort of this. Anthology of short stories. know these little little side branches off the main trunk. You know that you could. You'RE GONNA. You'RE GONNA get invited to them on the main truck main story. You'RE GONNA. Get invited them and maybe even once or twice in an engaged with them, but it's up to you hopefully, engaging enough for that story relates to you. It's up to you to kind of go. Finish out the rest of that branch, and we do a lot of stuff like we try to reward you for doing these things but I find that those things are They're good and I'm super glad. Glad reward you in different ways for playing these, but I find that the beauty of those those allies missions. If you will Masako. Norio characters is that they're just they're. They're far more developed in terms of like there are like what they need out of the world in their stories are interesting, and and they all have a different perspective on you and life, and you know in an what I what I think is kind of cool about creating a world like this is that you have to be okay with having content that exists. You're not forced to play. And you have to embrace that you have to because that. That is what makes it joyful when you go on your own ambition to go through it. It's not that you were told to go. Do it was in the Golden Path? And there were versions of the game earlier that a lot of these characters stories were more interconnected to Go Path. Through play, testing and feedback in her own kind of iteration process. We ended up where they are. Which I think is the right spot. which is you introduce them and then? Over your curiosity, we can push them push. You can go enjoy them your own Yossi, and there. Some of them are five or six missions long. And I think that's the right model, but it takes some iteration to get to that that that's spot for us. Even having late in the game the I think it's two missions for Eureka that pop up after you've revisited home. Just was such a such a Gut Punch. In the midst of as Jin, story is starting to come, full circle meant to have this exploration both more into him, but also into her life It's it was like as you were saying I, it felt so much more rewarding because I, saw it out that story within the. Yeah I think that that's A. It's not an easy philosophy to hold you now. as a director or as a contributor designer artist, because it means that somebody is going to get a bunch of people, not GonNa, play your mission bench people are not going to see your artwork, and and it's really hard to like talk about that because I want everyone to who worked on this game at Sakkara Punch to just like the super proud of it and love every moment that they cred tributed, too, but that's one where it's like. Yeah, but your thing is optional, and I can really bad, but it. In these cases it is for the for a greater feeling that. The people that will engage with it will probably tear out will probably love or be maybe even their favor mission of the game, even not the golden path I gave might be their favorite moment in the game nest. Because you, you let them engage it at their own will in. That's A. that's a hard philosophy to to. kind of stomach, but I think it's I. think it's a really healthy one for the type of game that ghost is. It absolutely plays into who I I think. My favorite thing about the game. Is that Me In the act of playing the game, so has to the game halfway in a presents all of these options, but I have to go exploring too, and I feel encouraged and want to explore and of my favorite times playing have just been putting a dot on the map letting the wind guy. A thousand kilometers, and if I if something stops me, stop if it doesn't I just keep going until something else. Interest me awesome. It's a calming experience which I don't often say I think about games at the moment. That's exactly how I played, too I would just put a marker somewhere completely random very far from me and just go there and see what I ran into along the what along the way with stories popped up which new characters I would meet, that would show me points of interest and stuff like that. and I think that that loop was really smart in terms of having sort of random gangs of bad guys. Patrolling the land and you'd run into them, and they'd have somebody kidnapped, and you'd rescue that person and that person would tell you another place to go. It felt like you're constantly pulling on these little threads. and I loved that so much was did that did that all take awhile to come together? Like outside of the wind is sort of the way the. The optional stuff and the sort of like randomize character you know excursions and stuff all interconnect. How how was it bringing all that stuff together to create the flow that you guys ended up with? The I I you both sound like you've played it exactly the way that I would recommend somebody to play, which is like hey, you know every now and then just throw down and go that direction and see what you find, and and if you don't find some great than go to your Golden, Pastora that's awesome, but try it, and because it's. In this is true for even when we're doing play testing that we did find that that was some of the ways that people would enjoy the game the most which is awesome. will you're talking about that? Like the ecosystem imbalance of people who tell you where stuff is in? How many patrols are there that stuff I'll tell you? We tweak that probably. Maybe until weeks before gold I think. Exactly the number on no top ahead, but is very late. We tweak those numbers because. because the sense of owning the curiosity, and like not having everything told you. was so important to the global feeling of enjoying just like exploring throughout the world, and as soon as you're told, were too much. Stuff is or too many things around your map. It becomes a different problem like you're kind of you either you either go into. Let's just go through the checklist which. Is Fine I think if you found them on your own but can be exhausting for some people because they're like Oh God. There's a ton of stuff to do, or it's kind of a turn off because you already know what it is, and you don't think of anything else over there, but they're actually might be if you if you actually went look, so we actually ramped down the people that the amount of people that would tell you where things were quite a bit. It used to be far more. part of the emergent processes I've almost everybody who talked to tell you. Something is, and it would put a thing on your map and We found that to be Super Smart System, and I'm so glad that we have it, but we put it in a very specific way in a very specific amount of things on the map total. Total that it would ever tell you about so that you still had your cool moment of like i. don't see anything over here on this. I'm going to head that way and finds things along the way now balance. It's really it's really tricky. Because again it goes up to that thing. I was talking about early. Enough loss of being okay with things being skipped and. That if you don't want to be so much that you don't have any information, that would be bad too right so it it is takes time to to work out, but the team did that. No, no a healthy fund way but I think even when you like clear. Mongol, Camp and Clears up a little bit. You still get a question mark. It's not even like yours, a hotel or something like that. And it's sort of it to me. It fell It felt like A. SORT, of natural to the universe that you guys were setting your game in this is this is like a long time ago. There is those no yelp. There's no google. So it seemed natural that you'd find a random person on the street and be like Oh. Thank you so much. There's this awesome restaurants. You should go check it out. Right I really doug. That I played a ton of the game in Kerr. Asala Mode Oh cool and that was. It was really it was really difficult for me. 'cause you made such beautiful game central? And I think it's I think it's. Beautiful in a different way in Curacao mode. But there was just something so special about about like heading into conflict or a story be or coming into a new environment. or it's all black and white, and there's that film green crackling, and a I read that you guys even did some stuff with the music to make it feel almost like it was coming through old speakers or something like that. Yeah, how how how how did how did you develop that? I I know. That's like obviously. It's something that you're studios. Really proud of especially since you've got endorsement from the family. It was a that was A. That was a I. I probably will put that in my top list of my entire career as like being apart process because. I mean it's just. It's just why just kind of a wild thing that you don't go into making video games because you expect to go through that process one day, yeah. which is probably why it's cool is that it's different. You know, but. The. We knew that we WANNA. Do Black and white mode I mean I think i. I don't remember when we first talked about it, but it was definitely really early Redo black and white vote, but again it got kind of pushed towards the end of the project, and then once things started to. You know you can sit in the world and you could be like. Oh, my goddess stunning! It's really a beautiful I feel I. Do feel like I'm. There's moments of this I feel like movie. It's coming. It's coming together. And, then we're like okay well. We definitely have that mode. Let's are planning for it. And an I got version of it in that was a very early version of it with a sliding team and Like what do we call this thing? and You Owe Samurai cinema or classic. Why can Wyatt our traditional La just things? You know cool cool names. And member WHO's I may was Brian Studio head. I don't remember somebody was like. When we see if we can call it, Chris Allen Mode. And I thought that was brilliant and I was like. Yes, can we? What was that process so I reached out to. One of the people that I think he deserves a special shout at his name as a relay Katami. He's on our Japanese producer. He's a helped us since the very almost since the very beginning, and he helps coordinate all of our feedback through Japan, and said Hey, you hey, who's now a dear friend of mine. I was like. Is this possible. Could you look this up? And he and the Japanese team reached out to their to their state across our state and worked out You know. They wanted to see video so I. Put together a video, and then I redid it like three times because enough. People on time video, but I was like Austin. Even Brian Our leauge rendering Guy Jasmine. He was not good. No. Though I kinda Redid it a couple of times and then eventually Is this. Is it I? I looked at so many movies measured the black and white. You know in our game. You know as you both played it. Daytime Times. There's indoor's whether there's rain. There's fog and so like you have to look at movies that have all of these things you can't just be like. Here's a movie. Here's a sample. It's the black. Man Like you gotTa. Look at all these because they exist in our game and it's a filter that'd be going over all of these and so I finally got to the point where I was, I had good black levels. White levels has cool noise. We sent them a video and and It took a little bit of time back and forth, but eventually we're like asses cooling reach an agreement. They were cool with it so. Yeah it was a it was a coup processing showed up. Is Mode teams all shit? It's called. Is it was pretty cool goal process. It has a dream come true. It's so awesome on a historical level. Because obviously you're seeing the game through its you know from the reveal trailer to now there's clearly a love and Joe Majd to the cinema and the storytelling that come in the John Mara, before it, and so to have that encapsulated as a mood that you can jump into starting to such a great I. Think like touchtone full circle thing as a fan of genres well. Also I mean the. The audio! From from like A. A gigantic Blue Tang Fan. It's it sounded like like RISI's sampling. VHS, tapes of sword slashes, and like there were moments. Paint that game and I was like I expect like method man rapid right now because. If anyone was intended, but that sort of got me on a very very like neural level I was like Oh my God like this is. This is quietly the best. Wu Tang game ever made since. The fighting gave. The quote somewhere I feel. That's. But. Our audio director Brad he that's all him he was like. I have an idea that guy's a wizard, so that usually meant something cool and he. It was like we have this special thing that we developed internally at Sony that replicates old processes from like you know fifty sixty s something like that radios and TV's and and And and he he kind of took that filtered it and figured out the right 'cause he was like. If you do too much over, you know, we wanted people to play lengthy amount of times and if they wanted to the Chrysanthemum. View too much, and it becomes incredibly fatiguing. Like, not watching move hours possibly thirty hours. You know so. You got a nice balance between that and something that you can you know Listen to over and over again? I- legitimated Curacao Mode for Poly Twenty five thirty hours and I think that I like maybe fifty sixty into the game. So how yeah! That's incredible. Yeah, along along with that and to me. It was surreal to play an open world game almost entirely in black and white. That was just I've never done anything like that before and. It was such a cool. It was such a cool experience. One of the challenges with eggs I would add is like since it's black and white. There's there's missions that use color as guiding, and so there are. There are a few missions of. It really struggles with, but for the most part we redesigned icons on the map so that it would work with answer, so you're not just looking at two icons ones. This color ones that color and we just changed the icon Lopate, but but yeah it, it's it's generally speaking. You can play through most of the game with it, which is just crazy. Yeah I think there was one mission where they're like find. The purple flowers was like Oh! I was to right back on, so that was good. Leads to so many great visual moments, and as you were saying I know we're running short on time I. don't want believe the too much, but I, genuinely really loved, and as pointing to earlier the the soundtrack and the way both game uses it. It comes in from quiet to loud, but also how the score changes both from the combat setting to the open world setting you know. Moments I would say not settings, but. That Jackson position as well as even on the side, the remixes that were coming out sort of in the lead up to the Games launch. There's so much great musicality and artistry. Bear that I think really. Elevate, so much of what's going on there on visual rebel to a works so well in tandem. You know there is no single discipline that contributes more to the game. The music like a known this case we have to composers, a team of people that obviously help implemented like their artistry is like. White just level things up so much like a scene without music in a scene with music. There's a world of difference in generally speaking I know it's not one contributor. There's quite a few people that make it happen. Processing and implementation, but it's insane. What music can do in for this game? It's it's. It's one of the best parts of the Game I. Think is the the the artistry behind the music in the soulful fullness in is is really I listened to it a lot. I love and then we tokens the glitch mob. Which is just? RIDICULOUSLY COOL! Yeah, it's an awesome combination i. do think as you were saying. It elevates so many great moments, but really. A drills home like the emotional undercurrent of everything that's going on in the game. Unfortunately. We're pretty much out of time. I think Brandon I could keep talking there so much. We love and really enjoyed about the experience and are continuing to enjoy. Time in this world, so Jason Thank you so much for taking time. We really appreciate it. SUPERFUND and thank thank you to your studio for. bookending this entire console generation with my favorite games. I I don't know if that was ever the plan, but the way that
"jasmine i" Discussed on Scheananigans with Scheana Shay
"You, if you you look in the vote on the chairs are actually tenor, then you. Know. You're not block fishing. People just told you I think it's they're just coming for you now. Because of what's happening and the your coerced fire, they wanna to make anything something, but here's a day where we're like in. San and I think, but I have a question about this, because it's like what if businesses do become more educated, and the you know because of the movement like if they do anything because of that then doesn't that just mean? The Movement was successful. Why why should businesses or people get any backlash for educating themselves and perhaps changing their behavior and not seeing that the photo that you had posted? The three of US had anything to do with it, because it actually didn't, but let's play devil's advocate, and let's say it did. You. Know what I want to show more people. Call her on my page and like Yeah I've I've been awakened to this. And then you do it and people are like whining edgy this three months ago. Good, it's like when people like why. Why is that a bad thing? If if the movement worked, he's such a spotlight. That is just like if you did. It is different than her, doing it the having. My first of all people take differently. If y'all watch my stories, you would see how many blog friends have how often I hang out with them. We've been in a pandemic so my. Boyfriend, also exactly, and then I'm like even on my Youtube Mike recently, it's not because of black lives matter like Oakland I need you youtube. You'll Jasmine I. need you on my podcast. No, it's just a little more socially acceptable to be around people in general right now, which is why you are seeing more of that because I'm back hanging around. Yeah, my friend, yeah, it doesn't matter just normal day. It would have been the same situation. Yeah, now that you're in quarantine with brock for two three months, and not showing anybody three and a half month. Old White person that's like. Oh, my gosh, doing because blacklist. Yeah, no, but I get what you're saying. Yeah I get where people can think that. Yeah Social. Media's a weird. It's weird, and it's really interesting what I learned recently from China is I mean I always need this, but the way you explain how your instagram is a business. It's very important. Obviously for the number of likes you got for when advertisers see that they base who they want to work with on on that activity, so what you had had said is like I don't always or hardly ever post with friends outside of the show which. It makes sense. It's not that trying to hide anybody exactly it's. New. That we get the money and give lying, that's what they want to see. They WANNA see things. They're familiar with. If I post a photo with Arianna no offense, it's going to help a lot more likes him with you. On? The show and it doesn't matter the you're Italian ways. It's nothing about that. It's who's on the show. Let's say Jasmine's on the show next season, and you would see a photo from three years ago in a photo from not like you'd see how many likes. It's so and also because she is on. TV So like. That's maybe a bad example because pedia. Isn't but you know, but it's like I could post with like my old roommate fair. The first girl I lived with Gorgeous Blonde girl I oppose the photo with her. No one knows who she is, but if she was on rules, people be like Oh my God. She Vera because people want to see things that they know you will relate to. And they complain. Pose with real. High. Goes Down and brands look at my. Special eight thousand likes just one point one million followers because those are my friends of twenty two years so I went to. Bed, but you don't want to see my real life. The people the thirty thousand subscribers I have on Youtube and the you know yeah. Thirty to two hundred thousand views on my blog, those people who care about my real life, and that is where you will see even more and more now that it's slightly more acceptable to be around bigger groups of people. You're going to see all of my friends because I don't give a fuck. Yeah, this is my life. INSTAGRAM is not my life as worse. Yes. That's why I told him like it's work. It's not real like yeah I could care less about half the time, but you do because it's work ads promos. Making Money Lake gotTa do what you gotTa do. ECORSE even had some of like my childhood friends and even Natalie. Who just cut our hair this morning? Yeah, we've for thirteen years. Shinkyo confronts thirteen years unlike her friends back home and be like well. If you say she has one of your best friends then, why are you never on her instagram? Graham and Mike and she's white. Does it matter if she's wider block? No, because it's not only who haven't been on the show, and if I post with you all the time, people even if we're hanging out all the time, even when like Janet, Janet became like a very. Big Person In my life that people on the podcast on Instagram Mike Golic Oh my God. We're Jinnah Gin, but it still was nowhere near the engagement. Arianna Britney and that's like the thing. Not only Mike you know also post on my story tag on my story. I'll post you on my snapchat, but honest static post. People aren't going to quote unquote like it and. Ruined bill on the Bachelor. I was like I was thinking about post like okay. If I post this mean, Raven and Alexis. It will blow up a half post this me and like John You. Know Me and radio probably won't do nothing exactly. It's so true, and that's how you have to think when you're in that like when you're on a TV show constantly and that which is neon one season I could imagine. Like you got to give the fans what they want. An people eighty eight years one. It's the same people on the show that these are my only friends and I'm like I. don't even like how these be. Nothing you'll. Never pushed him like do, but it's not like you're. I I totally gave I. Think People in America that watch TV. They don't understand how to. How like it's not even when I had on my podcast I was talking about the miscarriage and I go. You know it's really hard I'm seeing a lot of my friends who are pregnant right now and everyone's like okay. We'll Stasi like. Oh, my God, it must be Lala bring. Mike No. It's two of my friends who have never been on the show, and another one of my friends Hannah actually on below deck med, but like her I love her. And when she told me it was like I, had just found out, but it was too early for me. To announce knows that only got him so excited. We're both pregnant together would like. She's also might two other friends, my friend. I don't WANNA say their names on blast, but they have nothing to do with this public lifestyle. They're my friends, just because I'm saying a lot of my friends, you just automatically assume I mean various roles, people and I'm like. No yeah, and it's like a blessing, but a curse because people think everything is filmed in time. Yeah, they think you're probably right now. When air, so like this has to be happening right and I'm like a year ago I know and I mean for next season. You know whenever God does. Star. It's like we filmed last season a year ago. I'M WE'RE NOT? Going to be your family's far so strange. I could be pregnant. Let next season time we start. Yes, trimming. There's a lot changing in this world right now. I drew and knows a separate I. I just hate when people assume they know everything about your life, because they watch you on edited television show. On it a few minutes a week and I'm like go watch the hours on my youtube. If WanNa see who I am and see my real friends, because like now my friends now and sorry, if it annoys you. For hanging out, guaranteed and Prague and Like. All but I don't mind I. Just I went down to long. Beach, Lot, secrets on my most recent, follow me around July blog and my friend Danni mcklusky from high school. He he played for Kelly was like star football player. We were just really good friends in high school and we've stayed in touch ever since we've never lost touch so every time he comes. COMES DOWN.
Bed Bath & Beyond to close 200 stores
"I love bed, Bath and beyond. I don't know how you feel about it, but it is a I know people have their favorite stories. They like to go to some people. It's Costco some people's target. And they can go in and they could just spend hours inside of the store. But for me, it's bed bath and beyond. I don't know what it is. I just go in there, and it feels like kind of one of those big box warehouse stores like a Costco or Sam's Club. But It's a little bit more manageable. I mean, they're still our shelves that go all the way to the ceiling. And there's plenty of things that confined. You know, if you need, you know, to buy new pillowcases, it's there. If you need a new something for your kitchen, it's there. I love it. I'm always going to buy hangers. I don't know what happens to all of the hangers in my closet. But I need more hangers, and that's my goal. And I'm bringing this up because I'm so upset. There's so many of the clothes. They're closing a lot of the stores. Oh, I have something to confess What I have not been to bed bath and beyond since college. Really? Yeah. I mean, I went there.

I saw that too worried for our local Dunkin Donuts, Jasmine that we have that I haven't seen them and so long because everything has been so closed. But, you know, I bet Beth and beyond always gets me because they have that 20% off coupon and I fall for it every time. And I love that they could They take it even if it's not expired, And so for me. Anyway.

Don't judge me only only picturing like US standing at my house in a bikini and that's actually not I haven't been making us and tell us okay so we knew that right. Oh girl I hailed from the school of pieces. Don't don't get don't get it twisted but sir she comes in jeans with a bathing suit and a little cover up but she's going to pull party. Of course she is. She's fancy like that fancies relate really. It's actually a beach party for a twelve year old at Bolsa Chica. Fancy is not that I will girl get right. Come at me and I will come at you with a twelve year. Old Often. The J. cracking up but this is this is happy hour which is so appropriate when we're talking about depression yes I do love this but I love all these tools. I they wanted this to be a conversation about like what did we do we. I love to follow people. That are just a little bit or a lot ahead of me. Like they've kind of figured something Athena and there's a lot of stuff we have not figured out but with this. I feel like we've worked really hard on making ourselves better and healing healing ourselves around the depression so I thought we have to talk about what we've done ads. So you talked about the therapy but there's other stuff like when we were chatting in my office you talked about the mastermind wherein that's done absolutely in. I think that people listening could say well. I don't have support a family or I don't have a supported spouse right. Don't have sport of children and that could be true and let's back up one tiny second Dr Ayman since we're serving religious. Dr Ayman has a series of questions if I have applied them and I think it has had the most profound change in my perspective this in addition to other things but if anybody's listening and be like I'm tired of hearing these girls talk. I I want to make practical. Let's get into the practicality before we actually talked about the decisions we made as a result the practicality right so when you are having a negative or overwhelming thought the first things I write it down. There is something about writing the additive stopping and writing down. It's as if it's like an exorcism it comes out of you and then you see it forces you to look at it and Dr Very specific about that so you write it down okay so you write it down and then you ask yourself. So let's use you as an example Campobasso. If you would write something on your get what would be one thing that you're struggling with okay. So they're being one hundred hundred one hundred so I would say that that. There's a lot during to think of wine if I wanted to personal or business if I did business I'd say I can't get it all done fast enough off and if I don't I'm GonNa be Irrelevant K.. That's what you read in your paper. Okay in the second question is is this true. Aw Aw love. Acquisition and instantly. I know it is not true now. There could be people listening while it could be. Because there's sometimes I have deep thought dark mark thoughts that they'll very true such as my body will not release this weight so we got personal. We talked about my weight loss. There's as I get on the scale and it has. It moved for days and days Zor a week and I think my body wants to be fat like it will it will. I cannot lose weight and that fills true some days for me. Okay if we're looking at both the situation guy. I don't move fast enough. I'm going to be irrelevant. Yeah I am destined to remain this way. Yes and if we were to ask ourselves. Is this true and in even if you responded committee in the third question to ask yourself is am I a hundred percent certain of my response. Oh my gosh so right away it away right right away. Yeah it's no because we are not fortunetellers. We don't know with certainty if we are destined to be relevant over destined to be overweight. We don't know that right and then once we answer that then we know. How does it make me feel? How does let's just focus on business right okay? How does being irrelevant feel to you? It makes me feel small. It makes me feel scared. It makes me feel like I'm not enough. I'm less than or I'm good enough. And and once you and this is all written and once you see that. Do you think that those feelings will keep you from the purpose you have been sent here on the world. Yes and Yes yes last question. What would feeling the opposite of this? Like what if you were to look at that day. I'm going to be irrelevant. I'm not moving fast enough. We feel the negative emotions. What if you were to say I am moving at the right pace? I will always be relevant for a group of people. It would make me feel grounded in secure her and confident and excited or on the projects. I'm working on a these questions are good. We will certainly be listened them in the show notes. Stand okay so now. This is something I learned from. Our mastermind organizer Mentor Unicorn. James we are not our thoughts. He reminds me of that all the time. That the things things that we think are not us. They're just our thoughts so if we were to look at a piece of paper based on this like walking through from Dr Ayman we can choose to feel a relevant and lost and like things are passing. Are we choose to feel grounded and hopeful insecure. The choice is hours it takes just as much energy to feel fearful as it does decide I choose faith in setting Zion. This okay this is exactly you what I work on every single week with my weight loss coach and I think this is what has moved me so I love that. We're both are on the same. I didn't even know that you were diving into questions like that but I just realized this is exactly why I've been feeling so good lately is because I examined that like every day every day and what happens is people that I don't have time like I'm I'm in the car pool line. I'm at the grocery store. I have two jobs. I have a side hustle. When might you just walk diarrhea and like writing my issues down like a luxury? Listen booboo you do not take care curve yourself. There are a line of people who need you. So if you're in that car pool line you need to pull on over and you say baby. You'RE GONNA wait thirty seconds just got do this real quick. If you're at the grocery along you bring your phone you write it all down and then you ask yourself in this moment. I choose to feel what that has been the most profound difference in how I look at everything now. Do I think that I have the capacity to move through depression as a result of this process. No do I believe with all all of my heart that I have the capacity to change an expedite the process as a result of this hell. Yes Hell yes is right. I want to point now. You just reminded me of this when we were talking about it earlier. You brought up. Brunei Brown's Gold Plated Grit Grit JAP now with first of all with goldplated grit. If I came up for me when I called you to tell you I wanted to do an episode about my weight but I was scared to do cells and I thought that was a little bit mean to you. You were like you're doing it and you're telling the story about how you a lot of cupcake's that we're your size for his birthday. That was probably the hardest part of that push. Kevin Love. You do push me in love so with that though. I told Jasmine I said I don't WanNa do this episode about my weight and for those of you who haven't heard it. It was a while ago. I can and linked to it in the show notes. But I didn't WanNa do it because at the time I hadn't started losing weight I wasn't on a weight. Loss journey didn't have any tools to help me at the time so I had nothing to give in that moment except the truth that I don't like doing video because I am overweight. And that is embarrassing to me. That's all I had had to give in that episode. And you said that's enough and you brought up this gold plated grit so first of all we you tell people what that means. Because I don't do a good job explaining it but second. It came up when I asked you to talk about some of this. So Bernie Brown. She is like basically our best friend she never know a and you love her. Here's the thing I wonder. Why are your house not mine? Your House is way more show ready. Let's be like I was like Brennan. Welcome to my my house. Come into my closet. Her love her voice. She's an amazing and she's from Texas. Yes without. She's like y'all and she could say just so like Zola's a lot about words and I love that but coming from her. They're they're almost like sacrosanct regularly. Oh look how sweet bless her heart. Okay so she talks about gold plated grit and gold plated. Great is our ability to talk about things after. We've already accomplished them so how easy it is for us just to diminish how hard is situated was when we can just say l.. Guys I went on this journey I lost one hundred pounds and and this is how I did it. What we do by keeping our story to ourselves is inadvertently protecting ourselves protecting our ego? We do not want to be vulnerable because the minute you say. I'm on a weight loss journey all of a sudden. You give people immigration to watch you when you're out dinner right when you decide to have Glass of wine in so gold plated. Grit is talking about something. In retrospect in the thing that encouraged amy to do which would come back to haunt want me to today I was GONNA show up. You don't have to have the solution you just have to. I admit it and so when you invited me to come to the show I was just like oh no I'm not passed it. I cannot talk about it and I thought to myself. Oh Good God. Woman gives the advice you need to listen to and so this is me talking through it and now it's on tape and I. I hope that if not next year in eighteen even if it takes me ten years that I can look at this can say this was the first time it was very public and open about what the journey looks like from the inside. I truly truly hope so and I love that you shared it even though you might be still going through it in different ways. And I'm so very glad jasmine that you have come on the show and talked to all the bus about it because this is exactly what I wanted. I wanted a conversation around it and I think that's exactly what we got now. I also want to wrap things up with some resources in some tools to help anybody listening right now to find the support that they need but also jasmine. You have something really cool that you actually wrote about about this on instagram. I did did and I was kind of debating whether or not I would bring it up but I think you know we can always edit. It doesn't work okay. Okay so I think that I WANNA make sure standards at testament that when you ask for help you actually get it and when you talk to people actually arrive in ways you don't expect so so this was opposed to that. I wrote on June ninth and this was shortly after the passing of Kate spade and simply Dane and I just knew that I was in a funk and I knew that I felt like if I was feeling this way probably other phillies way and unbeknownst to me that when I open myself up people not only to support and help. They started reaching out and connecting with others. But but it also been the opportunity for any to invite me onto this show so whenever you feel like you are not enough you are and whenever you feel like you need help you can always ask for it so do nine.

Welcome back so i've already blown through jasmine galleries latest book. It's called the wedding party and it is fantastic and since i finished it i have been dying to talk to jasmine and finally i managed to get her on the phone right as she wrapped up her book tour for the wedding party <music>. Hello hi jasmine. Yes hi hi. It's britney how are you. I'm good. Thanks how are you. I'm good is this is now still a good time to talk. Yeah great great great great great one of our most popular episodes from the past year or two one of the episodes that that got the most conversation i would say was your episode the way that was one of the favourite interviews that i have done like we can go far like i mean i think we talked for twice. As much time as we schedule. Absolutely i mean the donald black women have been the best interviews of all of them. I have great time doing it. Thank you thank you so much seriously. Thank you thank you so the last time we talked. You gave this stellar advice talking about how black women i think are so often expected to take the crumbs and you were saying how we don't have to settle for crumbs. We can have the whole cake and dan. I want to tell you that those words stuck with me. Stuck with me to the point where i recently bought my first couch. Ever i mean i have had a home where i sit on the couch before song in my apartment just like sitting on on the floor watching television and hurting my back. No i guess always thought that like having a nice apartment was like four somebody else or is like four when i reached a certain in stage in my life the goal post for which kept shifting all of the time i bought my first ever couch and now my fiancee who was six four and we don't have to have one one person's feet up on the couch. Oh at one time we've sexual now so both of us can see so happy is love. It and i'm not the only one like we had so many listeners like right in or tweet to us about how that specific line is something that affected them and it made me wonder you know there's always the old adage about taking your own advice. Has there been a point in the past year where you've really had to take that piece of advice that you gave us. Actually i just before her wedding. Party was the chew weeks. Ted events like pretty packed in a lot of different cities and i had like sudden flights during that time and on the way maybe you might laugh flooding. Which is my home from cincinnati. I was looking at the flag and his thing about like. Do you want to upgrade. I clad for this play and i was immediately like that is not for me and i look i actually can afford biz. I should myself here is in the end up but i also had to make my right eye looked to see on the flight was like well. It has to be over four hour in order for me to do this. I don't know why i thought that like. Why's that my raw. I don't know but i'm i'm so glad that i did it like i was. I was on my. We've actually my book. Tour is carried on everything just like very heavy suitcase and double bag always august place and this time. I did not to worry about anything i sat and someone asked me if i wanted something to drink before the plane took off and i was like wow this this this is nice and even afford to take glass everywhere. I go as multi for myself. Yes absolutely and it it for a while. I was like do i deserve this and you know i think we need to get out of the like. Do i deserve to have something nothing nice like no. That's not how it is like. Can i forego and still pay my bills then so the last time we spoke you had just released two books in two thousand eighteen <hes> everybody in my team. Were all super huge fans a you're working our third book which we now know is the wedding party and it just came out last month so tell us about the book the wedding party it's about madison theo who are to alexis best friend from wedding date they they have always hated each other but they're both in elections wedding party and they keep accidentally swimming together until they kind of figure out what to do about that. I like the accident elizabeth taylor. It's true even amazed actually how many times i'm like wow they really don't tend to do this. Keeps happening and i don't mind about it. I don't mind okay oh good well. I'm glad i loved it cover to cover so good. It was like my nighttime treatment. I wanted to like have a nice mental vacation. Before i went to sleep sleep at night and just like wave my anxiety goodbye. I was reading about madyan theo tonight. I found their relationship to be so charming and like their romance was it was really ear resistible to read but something i noticed about the wedding party is that maddie and theo both seem to have a lot of anxiety and i felt like that came came up in the book like them dealing with their own euro sees and their own stresses and i really appreciated that because i could relate you know that's probably came out because i could relate to you know other writers talk about second book syndrome where you're like super stressed about writing your second book because your first book is out in the world world and people are reading it and you kind of realize oh people are going to read this book. I'm writing now well. I didn't have that with the proposal because when i wrote the proposal the wedding date without yet no i like writing a book in my bedroom. I didn't know if anyone's going to read it. You know it just felt like writing the other one then when when i was working on the wedding party any day was already out i was working on in the run-up to the proposal coming out so it was like all of this different stress onto on top of me as i was working on this book so probably that's where the anxiety came from because i was anxious well working on well. I felt like i related related to it like i felt like alexa in nick from the proposal and from the wedding. I felt like they really were just such sweet. People who have their shit together and i felt like mattie has a little bit of a short fuse. I've alex. She was somebody who i was like. <hes> i feel like well.

"jasmine i" Discussed on The Persistence Factor
"It's extremely I want these stories to help you develop your own mental toughness, which is so well needed into as demanding times to be quite honest. My wish for you is that these stories will allow you to develop your own persistence back to muscle and to keep on going no matter what I really wanna thank you personally spending time today. It really means so much to me if you get a moment. Any point, please, please. Please scribe and labor review and right the show. Now, let's. It out there. Take massive action, get uncomfortable and develop your own persistence factor. Muscle good day was happening. Everybody greens and welcome to the persistence factor. I am your host, Troy Brown, and I'm about to do something completely different that I've never done before and brought my better half on jasmine. We've never done this even. I've actually interviewed you on my show, but we've never done a joint puck cost. If you owe Sam. I'm very excited about it but also extremely once. Say none of us by vulnerable right now because I'm about to share something with you the listener that I think you only you know, my dad knows and my son just told to that. So I'm going to share some some things about my story, but also the evolution of of Troy Brown if you will, in the last so of two to three years, and you know jasmine by my side the whole time. So she gets to see grow if you will. From a personal development standpoint of how much I've have grown as an individual but with, but we're going to do now is actually share the story how we both I met. So I'm going to introduce jasmine even though she's been on before she. I think it was episode common episodes. She was on a lot. You already know who she is and she is been going to be completely honest. She's been honestly like a mental to me as well as my punish. He's also been a mentor, and she's the one that has. Been pushing me because he knows I've got big dreams aspirations, and I wanna leave a legacy. So she's been constantly pushing me to go off the. I wanna go off the regardless of the fair. So no one knows me bad than she does. So jasmine say Hello to the listeners what everybody was. This is kind of interesting different change in energy, and I think this is really great that you are taking your own platform. You giving yourself advice. You've been such a great advocate for everybody else's growth in their struggles that I don't think if you went through all that you've gone through and especially the soft growth in personal development that you've gone through, although last two and a half years that you've been, you would be in this position to share, you know the things that you've gone through in your life. I think people are actually going to be quite shocked, but I think you know there is definite strength in your vulnerability and I know to my core that what we're about to share with the community with people that someone out there is going to hear your story in is going to be so grateful that you decided to. Take that risk. And I think that's probably why I've been. This happened to me this incident which I'm going to share with you will happen to me for two years when I was basically between ages fourteen and sixteen, but this so much more. That's wanna talk about as well in this podcast, just because Philip assistance factor standpoint, I feel as my own story, hence the reason the show system factor is a real story of, you know, so many frigging bloody ups and downs, and. Just insane adversity. And I know we will have our on store and a lot of us have been for many, many challenges, and that's what life's about because there's going to be many more in the future. But I think this really, really honestly needs to be
