"The company. That's investing so much in its ad business but then also trying to monetize via subscriptions. But i think in the case of spotify. They've really been able to juggle both so well that i think this is a smart move for them. Is this just a matter of time before they Overtake apple as goto place for for poco apple. Podcast is still the most popular platform for americans to listen to podcasts on only just according to podcast network westwood one. They had some new data. July twenty nine to july twenty twenty looking at the percentage of folks who said they used apple to access podcasts and that percentage for apple. Podcasts fell four points from twenty six to twenty two over that same time the portion of people who access spotify for punk ass increase from fifteen to twinsies that gap went from eleven points. Two points Over the last year that gap between Spotify on an apple. Youtube was in a close third. Notching up to sixteen and on google podcasts distant fourth would just just six percents How do we see apple in all of this they gabe can be able to defend on spotify Them being overtaken inevitable personally. I wouldn't say that it's inevitable. I will say that you've got to look at the business model or the direction of these companies right so with They just don't have as much of a profit motive right now. There's not as much monetization that's basically happening in that. Area and spotify is essentially announcing a lot more in terms of its intentions to invest in that area which then means they've got to make a return on that so i wouldn't bet against spotify doing it but i don't think it's a foregone certainty either if you look at the the userbase Earmarked estimating twenty six percent of spotify monthly listeners wishy into polka so cortra- of spotify listeners tuned to podcasts are on spotify in twenty twenty That percentage expected to grow to fourteen three percents in three years. Time so people who asked to find uses increasingly interested in podcasts particularly focused on the spotify platform they're also now two million costs on spotify. Say continue to increase the number of shows that they offer. Let's talk about the The uses for a second. Because which was about podcasts because of the recent megaphone deal because of the recent speculation or as jeremy said kind of inevitability of the fact that they're gonna be releasing some kind of plo cost only service But music is a huge piece of spotify how they got started how they broke into the us markets and just reported that Overrule us the number. Whether you're listening to podcasts or music have you in q. Three spotify said they'd reached three hundred and twenty million three twenty million monthly active users. Which will be a twenty nine percent year on year growth rate. That's thanks in part to a successful russia launch which they credited of that three hundred twenty million one hundred forty four million page uses. A number is up. Twenty seven percents on. If you took the page uses as a share of the total it would be forty five percents of that total audience pizza. You look rather closely Specify use a number twenty make of how spotify did in q. Three particularly compared to some of its competitors yes. Spotify had a strong q. Three where they grew their premium subscribers in their ad supported listeners. Year-over-year on they're actually gonna have a really strong full year twenty twenty. I'm much better than than people expected. One sort of the pandemic hit and there was an initial dip in digital audio. Listening on spotify really had a relatively tough q two on where they lost. Some supported revenue year over year but looking at q. Three they bounced back really quickly and looking at the premium subscribers. I think this ties back to what we were talking about. With their new focus on podcasts. Which is their premium subscriber. Growth is still going to be around ten percent next year but it's declining beyond that. So a lot of their revenue comes from premium subscribers. And they had so many and they've done so well attracting premium subscribers in that can't last forever so they have to look at other ways now to make up for future revenue and continue to grow their bottom line in that partly explains i think why they are moving into podcasting. In investing in tools that will optimize their revenue. Mix is a one quarter of americans we say. Seventy eight million people will listen to spotify. According to emarketer in two years time that number goes to ninety four million or forty three percents of everyone who listens to digital audio so very healthy global number very impressive. Us number if you look at some of our estimates also worth noting that time spent spotify. We're expecting that to dip a little bit from forty five minutes to forty minutes from twenty nineteen to twenty twenty and it's going to stay there for for next year that kind of surprise me particularly as more people move to podcast by guests guys. That's one reason. The spotify wants to move into podcast. Another reason not only the you know having to pay those rows he's like you have to music but also engagement is going to be long because people can listen to a twenty thirty minute. Our to hour long three hour long costs as opposed to a a three minute. Four minute song came back to that. Three twenty million us a number of for seconds we said one hundred and forty four million our page uses. That's probably more appropriate number. Two compared to someone like apple. They reported sixty million paid subscribers. As of last year amazon music a close the with fifty five million. They don't break out paid subscribers a want to end the lead by quickly circling back to advertising for a second because a few things. I want to mention emarketer. Full costs specifies ad revenues. How did they get affected. This year they fell to just five percents Growth this year down from twenty three percents in two thousand and nineteen. They will bounce back next year to thirty five percents Reaching over six hundred million dollars and some some some bright spots of reporters from the company with regards to that advertising business allison's shift of ad exchanging notes that specified doesn't break out and revenue from podcast. This ning vessels music listening but the cfo vogel recently said that it's number of punk cost. Advertisers had roughly doubled in q. Three versus q to An advertiser retention was high as well. saying pocus ad revenue was up nearly a hundred percent year on years. A couple of couple of numbers in there which positive signs for for spotify A big part of this is ben being able to talk as a people and the more these companies who've is up the better. It's going to be doing that. Spotify knows people's names billing information residents musical tastes spotify connections devices. They use age all this data and It's not quite to the to the scale of a of a facebook or google. But well on its way you could argue And they're looking to build a similar kind of reminds me of amazon to a certain extent. a very compelling on business which kind of flies under the radar for a long time before you switch the taps on. Us podcast ad spending expecting that to grow forty one percents to one point. Three billion in twenty twenty one. Seventy million of that of six percent will be a programmatic but that that. Us cost is spending. Pie is growing even though it's still small and that's something that Spotify very well aware of jason richmond to is head of global advertising. Business saying quote. Big brands require much more detailed understanding of who's listening and they've all been standing on the sideline waiting but when after a large slice of a small pie where baking a much larger pie. So yes spotify definitely in this particular poker game for the long haul..

"That's why we don't. We engage for the organization you know a day, a quarter or couple half. Days every other month and we take it in small bites and we let activity and you know deliberate things being done by them internally in all in small pieces. Again, the last thing you want to do is yet room worked several days come out with this thing and say, okay see and it just becomes a flavor of the month type of thing. Were more engaged in working with with an organization over long periods of time and know being that resource for them to help eventually strategically Volvo culture the way they to go as every company has a culture in sometimes you'll get in there and you'll you'll help diagnose and stuff, and they're right on track that's value to some companies to to make sure that their culture really is what they want to be. So how often do you suggests companies evaluate what their culture is and whether it's it's effective I times a good time but a lot of times I think when there's there's big change when there might be. A big product change there might be a big leadership change, but but just traditionally of everything is kind of going along in all I mean every eighteen months every two years I mean really have a strategic initiative to take a look at your culture. How do you feel culture can impact leadership? In the way leaders are managing their people and or driving the business to the next fishing. So my my personal opinion is that you know that front level middle manager level within any company, and again talking about a company ten people could just be to hundreds and hundreds of people you gotta level that frontline middle managers. I think they're the kingpin of culture they are the mouthpiece to communicate up and down. And to be able to get input and feedback up and down and I think they're buying their unity, they're the frontlines I mean they're they're passionate about the organizational culture is critical to sustain any success at all. If you get people that ranks with really high egos or someone that's rogue or someone that is going to run over people in if there's a disconnect and those ranks, it's GonNa be really hard to sustain a really dynamic culture has all of your. Culture just taught you. I think all my experiences culture is taught me that there's not a silver bullet. There isn't one culture that fits everybody I. It's not your culture will evolve as your company evolves as your company goes through different stages. Your culture is GONNA follow those stages regardless if you put any any intent or any work in the organizational culture, you will have one. If you don't keep an eye on it and spend a little bit of effort most likely, it won't be the culture you want. It's like growing anything wear you've got water it fertilize pay attention and it.

"Letting, everybody, contribute and participate. Have you see the impact of working from hall and it being more challenging long-term? How do you think that will impact business? Will we get back to working in person at some point in the future I I think yes. But I think this is made my personal opinion is this has made a permanent. Workplace Structure Change I think the level of remote workforce is permanently changed. I think it's going to be permanently higher You're going to see more and more call centers, customer service positions with technology and and structure at home. You're going to see a larger population stay working from home i. that's a permanent change having having had a virtual business essentially entire. Career at this point I've been surprised that more people don't work from so many different ways to do it. I thanks of corporation like Oh. This works at different than we thought one challenge I do see though in these is is a lot of times when especially in in the sales arena in sales situations where so much a vendor relationship can be based on a relationship you build with people over time. That there is a potential challenge with especially professional services, industries, and things were some of some of their products and services. People won't maintain that high level of touch points in relationships, and it could commodities could have a tendency to commodity some products and services a typically work viewed as a commodity before Democrats. I think that's going to be a long term trend sales people are going to need do change your approach and work with organizations and with purchasing departments and department heads that sales arenas going to change a little bit in. They're gonNA have to adapt to the new world. Absolutely. We've really interesting and I. Think far more intentional is however all end up interacting which that's a really good thing long term as well as being more aware having more communication connecting Agai- and spending time after you diagnosed whatever the problem is, how do you create a plan to improve your culture because while I think you can define culture define what's important it's still an abstract thing. A boxy pick up and shaking and and how do you make that more concrete Lavar processes is especially when you get into that planning and execution stage in the measurement stages is we like to recommend what we call a culture influencing process where people from out the entire organization from contributors. In, small groups and you do this remotely in person and so forth. But we introduce a whole bunch of different types of tools and techniques and things that they can do within the organization. Ideal outcomes is a company that you know. We're not going to come in and fix an organizational culture. That there isn't anybody that can come in and fix that problem for somebody. Or that challenge for somebody WANNA come in and work with dedicated committed groups of what we call culture influencers. That are coming with perceptions in opinions and and input from all angles of the company or the business. And put tools in their hands to go influence the people around them. People in their circle him. So it's all in the same way to actually execute not only develop a plan, but then execute that plan in regards to making changes. So one example would be. reviewing some policies and procedures maybe there's a policy and procedure that you had in your organization forever. But in today's world is at policy and procedure really relevant. So a Culture Committee Culture Culture influence or group would look at some of these policies and procedures and evaluate them and make sure they're lined with what we defined. We WanNa do so we work with with groups of influencers and what time in between those engagements and have very specific outcomes that we were challenging them to go out accomplish on their own. It's your question. Yes. Yeah. That give some solidity to the abstract nece like this were to measure it at. Created etc. What are the results that you've seen on some companies that you've worked with? As, you've helped them improve their culture with employee's performance. You'll. You'll. You'll see results. From a lot of different angles dependent on what groups are, what what you're really focusing on but you'll race you'll see results in lower turnover. you'll see results in higher level engagement scores within your organization. You might be able to see results in client retention. Or possibility of. Increased in business with an existing client base additional like market share penetration. That's an outcome of of of culture, a culture focus. You'll also see a big influence in. Internal potential promotions or maybe movements within the within the company people will have a better understanding of what other groups do, what other divisions do, what other. You know sub-departments do. And you'll see a little bit of movement within Your Company, some cross training opportunities in a higher level of effectiveness working together for instance, it and sales or manufacturing and know that type of stuff. You'll see you'll see a higher level collaboration amongst different departments and A whole host of benefits you could. Culture impacts all of them. Right. What in your plan? Do you really need to focus on and you wouldn't focus on ten of them? Right well you can. Get the results. When you're working with your clients end let's say they do need help in all ten areas. Isn't that identifying what did like the top two priorities are top three had a trickle down effect exactly. How culture isn't a light switch? It's a journey..

"And carry St late core values and mission impact are a big part of just general day to day being as what I teach. Mike people do you think like identifying of that is what helps both the employer and the employee what's good fit, and what's not I do step one step one in our model is defined. And and there's a big difference in getting in a board room. And having a handful of people come up with ten different leadership competencies and call them their values but some definitions and send out a memo. which happens quite often and they put him on the wall. And there's a big difference in doing that versus grabbing. People from across the organization and getting their input in getting some type of communication from them or failing from them about what the organization's values should be, and then we take it through a step of once those corporate values are established is it'll take it a level further and I call them culture drivers culture pillars. So then what are the actual really culture pillars that support those company values and and that's a process of defining stage the first step of of really reevaluating revolving your culture. And? I. Think at some point I'm people skip it. I do and then they go right into diagnose, which is the second step. They go right and you said in engagement surveys, employee satisfaction surveys, culture surveys. They're all tools to get kind of a footprint on or a template of. What the organization is like and they're all very very impactful tools but it's what you do with the information from them tools to really dig deep to figure out. You know diagnosing what we're currently dealing with right now and how aligned disaligned is with what we wanted to be second skipping the. Defy. Hey, it's really hard to diagnose it is. Your diagnosing myth right. A lot of times when lawler companies midsize companies are three, four, five, six of top leaders part of executive teams and a Lotta Times. I'll have one on one interviews with them and asked them to describe their culture prior to me break in one on one, you know I, I have a meeting with all of them and you know there's a Lotta Times communication were on the same page or we're on these values but then one on one will ask him describe the culture times get six different descriptions. So even in all throughout the whole organization, sometimes the the power perception sometimes gets in our way of. Have has all of this impacted organizational. Organizational Culture. Of the new normal here from working from home. Yeah I say I think it's harder to stay connected even with zoom everything else right but Qatar to stay on mission. The core values going at harder to diagnose implement change it is because even some of the tools if you were doing engagement surveys. A year ago. A lot of organizations will do an annual engagement survey. Well, I would highly recommend a company. Now, that has gone to a remote workforce everyone working from home. Not Use the same engagement survey. Their circumstances have changed their environment hasn't changed. The way you'll get input the way they're the way they're evaluating engagement today is quite different than what they were measuring or what they were considering engagement. A year ago. For instance at your prime members. Starting over a couple years ago maybe five years ago lot of organizations were were restructuring the inside of the buildings getting rid of offices making open workspace, bullpen, space cubicles all over. What's happening now people that are coming to work, we're putting up glass walls that offices separating. So that is impacted culture. What what what we were using as an avenue to build culture and drive culture in a year ago. Isn't allowed in today's workplace so we've got to do. Everything's have you see kind of going from the open floor plan where there's a present a lot more background noise but also less privacy to even if you're just putting glass walls where he can succeed people but there's still a separation have you see that affecting the culture of an organization? We don't change our leadership styles or our leadership actions I. I think it becomes a communication wall I. Think it becomes I'm not gonna say an excuse but a, but a barrier or reason. Why I don't communicate as much or as openly. And and I challenge leaders all the time they situations even if you're bringing back people in your office in, it's a different format or if they're working from home leaders have to change and how they're communicating engaging with people one on ones or more important than ever. And I don't I'm not talking about one hour long one on one performance reviews. I'm talking about touch points and quick points, and how are you doing it and what's going on your life and taking a little bit of interest you know higher level of interest in that person as an individual. Some of those changes, but that's not inherent in that. That's not an inherent skill of a of leaders in it. It's something that they need to concentrate on. Maybe they didn't have to do it as much a year ago right? Right and be aware I would think of changing people's patterns so that they can know or be aware to reach out that something's different. I always say a with my clients like if I don't hear from somebody who's usually kinda chatrier communicating, reaching out to find out what's going on because I don't know if it's just super busy on their crushing it or they're struggling. Same for employees I think it's very interesting to see what happens for somebody who you know isn't a management position or is leading their business and they're looking at US differently, how can they start taking steps to become more aware of what they need to do to connect with people? Any level organization individual contributor the management or leadership can be culture, influence her, and an example when you know individual contributors just with their peers and in their in their teams you know making. More effort to at the end of a team meeting. Let's take ten minutes and catch up on who's doing what let's take our team meetings now in zoom in and if their regular you know every like let's say we have a regular weekly team meeting. Well, you know have have an individual contributor, lead the last ten minutes of the meeting about a topic that they feel important I mean these are just very simple things from the individual contributor level in that can influence. As long as they keep it very positive. I'm a big believer that positively is is absolutely enthusiasm is even more contagious than negatively absolutely everybody wants to feel good I it's right. That's right. So it all it's and it gets difficult with the world we live in work from home or not. Not Seeing a lot of times, you know your friends almost sees personal relationships you build over the years taking advantage of technology of be purposeful about..

A company that has developed remote learning programs for companies of all sizes. He is the author of contra spark five steps to ignite and sustain organizational grows. and. In that book, you deliver a five proven five step plan that helps define, diagnose plan measure and sustain an enterprising culture breeds, employees achievement in peak successes, and I am so fascinated about really diving into this method. Applies not just to organizations but to everyday life. So. Welcome to the show Jason I am thrilled to have you with us. while I. Thrilled to be here I, appreciate the opportunity to speak with you and your audience today at It excites me. It's good. It's a good thing. Yeah. So how did you become an expert in culture organizational culture and creating a place where employees can drive? It goes way back to Even in my even in my youth in the I always been someone driven by continuous learning. and. You know I've had a twenty five plus year career and organizational learning and development. as behavior, change, skill development, and all over the years of my career you see all kinds of buzzwords or trends or techniques all of those put together in all passionate about what makes what makes teams work? What makes people work what makes companies work and to me? It's it's this pocket of people that come together and behave in a very, very deliberate in a very authentic way to make organizations successful and and like you said, this goes into your personal life, your family life, the same principles apply inside and outside of work and. I think that's what drawn me then to learning and development and help people grow and that whole concept a continuous learning twenty five years ago I lived abroad Austrailia, and since then I've lived in other countries and it's just every leadership experience I have good or bad has a leadership moment or leadership lesson and working and driving in so many different cultures only just you know country culture but corporate cultures, you really get this. Passion for trying to understand other people, their thoughts, their ideas, what they can bring to the table, and that really what grounded me and in culture, and that's what grounded me to do the the two years of research in hundreds and hundreds of interviews that I did and and you know the fact finding and the discovery work in regards to publish our book culture spark. Yes. That's amazing. This combination of a lifetime in your book so Is there a secret sauce to having incredible the What is the one that? I. I get asked his own time and I and and you know, is there any? Common thread or common ground run high performing cultures and you know in all my interviews in all my research, I did find a couple and and the big one was authenticity. I mean. Don't try to be someone you're not. And as a company, don't try to portray yourself as something you're not. because. People especially in today's world with the heightened level of social media and media and reviews, and all the different websites go on and post their opinions. I mean people see through authenticity and real dynamic cultures have a level authenticity and the other thing is transparency and I get a lot of pushback once in a while when I talked to executive leaders and an organizational managers and leaders about transparency and and and. Not Communicating things you're not supposed to communicate, but it's it's communicating in a way that illustrates that there's something for the other person why things aren't Gordon be open and honest if you can answer a question or if it's confidential, then you know saying that is a transparent type of behavior. So out of all the leaders managers actors as I dealt with in high performing cultures, those two themes, authenticity and transparency. Just come screaming through different steps and when you when you go down and really get involved with the individual contributors and you hear feedback about you know managers and workplace culture and a level engagement some of the biggest disconnects in engagement surveys and engagement research are those same things do you feel like by being transparent to it opens up places for managers to be more proactive because they can hear a different way? At the same time gives. The people that are getting with a space of understanding where there's no transparency than people are making up their own stuff because they don't understand what's guy not direct. You're you're a hundred percent on and the the other thing a dozen this one of the reasons why sometimes this can be such challenging our communications because. Being truly transparent opens up a door of vulnerability. And you know from a sub-conscious behavioral leadership style sometimes, that's really hard for leaders or managers executives to to show that vulnerability. But in today's world, I, think that I think that's what our world is made up of right now is the need to be more vulnerable, right need to be more open need to be more engaging and gathering other people's ideas. Thought that's I think one of the toughest things about being transparent all the time is it. It does kind of open up a little boehner ability I got a really good friend that's a very high level executive coach and his name is also Jason, but he he talks about his word is the intimacy. That level in in. Vulnerability in intimacy really letting people know who you are I. Think People are craving that to in this world that has even before kkob it has been very disconnected and everybody's POPs on social. Media. Think said, the grass is always greener than. Months of like hanging out by yourself. In Your House. Like those three things, the transparency authenticity and then just connecting is is being vulnerable in that space are really really important. So I'm curious why is that so important in creating the corporate culture? Is it really the communication piece I think it is the communication piece, but it's awful. It's also a differentiator in In your organization to be viewed a perceived as one of the. Top companies to come work for top organizations to come work for right now in today's world in this started years ago no candidates interviewing and looking for a new career or career changes are interviewing companies just as much as companies are interviewing them. And Year after year researcher showed in, there's more and more questions. A higher percentage of people you interview are asking them about workplace culture. So having that level of transparency in those types of things not only helps you re checked really high quality talent into your company whether it be a five to six person company or A. Hundred Thousand Dollar Company would also helps you to retain your top talent..

I'm Jason Richmond. Here's Rick Rubin and Kevin Parker and you might hear roosters crow in the background every once in awhile. Unfortunately sheltered in place sometimes means being surrounded by wild chicken. It's what was your introduction to music. What what are your first memories of listening to music? His Kid my dad was Kinda musician by hobby. I loved music loved Planned cover band just playing kind of Sixties Beach Boys Betas Rolling Stones covers and say he would always have the Senate guitars and stuff long on the house and in the end of the garage. I guess of Your Dad's music was the first your first memory of was of him playing music or of the music you listen to. Obviously we listen to it because he would. He would always have music playing in the car. In fact we because this is one song that I that I have this memory of always asking him to play and I remember there was every time I heard it was you know I must have been about four years old dad this song to this day. I don't know what that song is. It's hard break. Dad's still remember a pasta about ten years ago so So yeah I don't think I don't think he would have remembered that new either but it's Yeah. I have a feeling it's the shadows song. By the shadows randomly came across the song in life it would lightbulb. Would go there it is. It would probably trigger some sort of weird episode. You know wherever I wasn't probably just sort of stop breakdown in some way but at the same time. I think it might be a song that I know the moment by the shadows because I have a feeling it was instrumental and I know that it was really like touching and melancholic which which kind of points directly to the shadows and what was your first music. That was yours. Probably GonNa you our like. I would have been about eleven years old. My friend play means Yvonne because we were like the first kids in our class to get into music in like a girl in his house every Tuesday or something like that off to school and we'd like discover rock music. I was kind of it. Was like a piffling. Absolute REVOLUTION OF LA LA. Just like jumping around the room. That you know that that that whole that whole kind of discover that whole story which is probably everyone but Yeah I'm in Nevada and kind of just a a a a cascade of smashing pumpkins Silva anything with distorted guitars. Anything with drop-dead shooting but that was always the kind of part of that music. That was kind of it wasn't just like angsty was a kind of discovered the motion. It like smashing pumpkins next. Smashing Pumpkins has that that real that real kind of sensitivity to even though as like blaring wall of sound. You know what I mean delivery. I started started experimenting with making music. yeah well. My brother played drums. Sahin older brother or younger. Yeah he's two years old Sahan drum kit which I just thought it was incredible. I like says sort of you know. Just watch him and it was kind of. Wow so obviously I immediately wanted to copy him. We had this type Dick in the the music room which was. Kinda just ruined the house. Type Dick the microphone. Input Jones is like kind of like cassette Cassette decks and with some accordance Jack in the corner just has mapra phone and so we plugged a microphone into a and just recorded ourself playing drums just to sit down like and then we had this keyboard sitting in the rooms. Little Cashier GonNa thing and a one day. I was just playing along to myself playing drums with the I didn't even know how to play. Kyaw hitting random not sound like a nursery rhyme probably unnoticed in the room. There was a second cassette deck with the same thing so I stuck a mocking bird mocking. Did that and recorded myself to hitting these cays over the top me playing drums and listened to that type and it was made playing keyboard to my. It was may two things at once. Blew my mind. Lower lead stood have been eleven amazing. Yeah yeah the idea of starting to do it with the ideas of making it for other people to hear start. Well I mean like like every young teenage musician I had like grandiose dreams of being a brock star especially because my favorite band was silica and they were like fifteen sixteen and I was like twelve thirteen by that point. I was like I was like I couldn't like fifteen sixteen. That means I've got like two threes two threes. I can. I can still get to where they're they convey them. You know how young they were because they were such little kids for whatever reason whether it was because you know because that would like young Australian boys or because like they're kind of they would have been the symbol ahead spice in are the kind of like their approach to would have been in the same realm as Mon. How did you decide to end up being a solo artist as opposed to being in a bad? Well I always. I played in bands the whole time in high school like I was obsessed the idea of playing in bands but it also had the making music thing at home since before. I accidentally multi-track myself. That time I was playing in a band it was kind of this. Is Music School that I went to where they teach you. An instrument was drums and then every Saturday morning they get the kids from different instrument tuitions and put them and put them in bands so put me in the in the band so I wasn't abandoned. Eleven which I fucking loved. I could not why I could not why for Saturday morning to come around because it was like you know playing music with other kids was just this. Another mind blowing thing But I also but then so I better that better recording music by myself and the two worlds never really met like even even the Stott of Lifetime. Impala when was sort of like twenty one twenty two? We were playing songs that I'd written for us to play live and they were the ones. I was recording harm. That we even had on Moscow's it took a while for the two worlds to kind of converge if that makes sense because I just didn't know how I didn't know how to translate what I was kind of doing harm expressing on my on because music was like super kind of against against sensitive is the word and kind of nuanced and John Lewis but the music is making bands. That was music was more kind of like what we listen to a group. Like kind of more angsty like heavy kind of stuff at the time that you started making music with the idea of putting it up on my space. What would you say the influences? Where what we listening to By the been who hope to get to play which drags up that was around. The time now is super kind of obsessed sixties music. So I was kind of like the doors Jefferson airplane. I didn't have a lot of kind of like modern day. Audibles Just because of like that was the kind of Lost allies leading unlike as living in a house of the paper. We kinda just. We just permanently listened to seventy Constantly I mean. This is Banco Dongyan that I was super into still am to this diet. That's gives me goosebumps and it's funny because I listen and I can hear my first album all over. You know it's something. I didn't really notice at the time consciously but just like the. Yeah how'd you describe how the second album different from the first It was it was a hundred times more indulgent. Which is what I wanted. You know because I'd had this kind of like surge of confidence that I didn't have a previously prior Baker. Kinda shy stone kind of and I like the way you had a lot of a lot of success. The first album went on tours and all this kind of stuff and so I suddenly realized that. Be Kind of validated. My approach and my kind of like what I wanted to do. So I can say loner. Ism was kind of like Blind that wide open. How did the third album when that came? How is that different Well I mean the second still didn't fully know what I was doing kind of like I got Abelson and instead of just sort of it being the corner of my bedroom in show house that I made it for. The second album is like fuck.

It's faster because of the bus if it's on PCI, then it's going to be. Faster. But if you're putting it on Saturday three I think, you might as well, just get an even save some. I think you'll save money. I'd look at that. Do you have you also have to get an adapter right as your motherboards support? Yeah. I did do that get that after right? It's it's. Impotent. I feel good right now expensive was that nineteen dollars from. All right. Not too bad. And it'll it'll connect to the SATA three port on your motherboard. Right. Exactly. And the good thing about this one. I can either have either of them they have foot boat. Perfect. So it's got you know, you've got some future. If you get a new system, you can move it over to that it also the other Vange of two very compact. I mean size of a match book. So it's a lot smaller than any two and a half inch solid state drives. So there's an advantage there. You don't have to take up room in the is it it's a tower case. Tower case. Okay. And the only thing about it. I mean, they great detail you to do that. But how do I actually make it into a boot drive with the older systems because right before is different? Go or maybe people chat room may know. 'cause I've been log on. I think if find Find that. that you gotta do to make it. A boot drive is tell the the setup I used to call it bios. Remember those days, it's not bios anymore. But tell us set up it's like the bios setup. You know, you press these scape or delete a f twelve whatever to get into it. And you tell it what booed order to us. And you just say I want you to boot off of this SATA port. You know, sad a sad a one or set a two or Sata's hero. I think by default. It will it will do the SATA connections in order. So if you have you can move your drive around in that tower to to connect the m dot to card to your Sata's hero, it should from that without any settings. But it's easy enough to be to change the boot order in the bios settings. So I think that's all it would take to do that. A Santa drive is a sad drive. The it doesn't know that. It's some fancy Dan next generation small form factor. Do Hickey it just it just has to say we'll drive there. There is let's boot to it. Now. The next step, of course, getting your operating system on there. And you have two choices you can either. Clone your existing boot drive onto it. And that's take some swapping of drives around things like that. You have to boot the original use a clone program. There's a variety of those you can do that will just make a sector by sector. Clone of the boot drive onto the dot to then you'll swap it and put it back in the put the two in this sad zero port that kind of thing. You may also Mike in the chatrooms saying you may have an option in your setup for Bootle, add in cards mine never seen that you do. I think if it's in a PC, I express if it's if it's an MD to slot and pizza express lot in that case, I have seen other boards. We had a gigabyte motherboard that had you had tell it. I want to boot from this dot to slot because that's a different place, but SATA is just going to look like a regular drive. I don't know if you have to do anything particular to that have fun.
