I don't know that makes you feel makes me feel terrible. And i think it's just the obvious that the product quality has gone down. Have you been ordering pizzas still hard. I've ordered six hundred pizzas in the last ninety days. Are you serious. I know exactly what they're selling to your point. Even you have one or two surveys. That doesn't make it doesn't make a letter. Make your captivated by what you just tell me. What your ordering strategy you live in area even kentucky right so we're so tell me about six hundred pizzas probably ten or fifteen states just to know what's going on so when you have as much stock as i've i've had you wanna make sure that you know the product is there and to your point you know one example doesn't make his survey but when you have six hundred you kind of know what's going on for sure anyway. The product has slipped. They know that the franchisees of know it and the the services slipped they have no pete's experience at the executive level or at the board level. They don't care about the employees. They just screwed them over. And i'm worried about the franchisees if they look what they did to me. Look what they done the employee's and then look with they're gonna do to the franchisees the writings on the wall. That the worst place you want to be in twenty twenty one is a franchisee of papa. John's international that's the worst place you want to be. You're sitting on the dynamite. So papa tell me about the pizza ordering system. Did you have people in different states. And then you guys coordinate you get do try with topping our. They undercover like papa. John know that you're doing this like what kind of mind games are going on. A high level now papa. John's and care what they need. The you could buy any service and go out and spend you know. Spend the money and they'll order the pizzas until you serve. That's doing it across. Its five or ten thousand bucks to go out an order. Three hundred pieces. So it's a big deal but is it like people you personally. No no no. It's it's secret. Shoppers independent you know people throughout the country that will order pizza and then report with what they got your marcis kind of survey program like undercover. No no i'm not. I wanna know interested. I'll get you all get you. The i'll get you the name of the vendor several. It's a service they give you. It's a service. John's used to do it but they stopped doing it. Because it costs money a money and b is. They didn't want to see what they were served. We know it's bad if you don't if you don't measure that they will do it if you don't reward it. They will repeat it of what are we going to do. So is getting away. From christ as we've seen i had nine pizzas and more than dc last week and the the operator dc's actually. He's a colonel. He's actually pretty good and he's they were slipping pretty bad. They've slipped the to your point in with. Kobe is going to cover all that up. Even though you don't have to be on your game when you got a monopoly. And they got monopoly. What are we going to do. I mean it's just not right. I mean you pizzas as a sacred. It's sacred and to see the cheese slipping away from the crust like that and the pepperonis not being evenly distributed is just. It's just not fucking okay. Well you're also Yata be being. Whereas i spent thirty four years of my life building saying and watch do do what they're doing to my baby. Is that part. You can get emotional and upset about real quick. I mean to know what we had. And know how i mean. We're the best place to work in kentucky for five straight years. I mean yeah has dating. Life switched from pizza dating good.

"And it was an intentional and it was a militias second thing is we have the louie freeh report which exonerates us you gets us off the hook and then the third part to your question is damages. I mean the damage. They've done to this one. This one good for me. This would a good time at all but The what they've done to my community they left louisville hanging what they've done to my employees. They fired all employees. Have move the land so they got you. They got put out the door kicked to the curb in what they've done to the franchisees to this brand the last two years by intentionally set in the founder up as a racist the damage is here are astronomical so so your your your ultimate goal is now that you've you've you're proven your innocence and there's more evidence coming your goal is to now take this evidence and file a lawsuit against laundry service for damages. Well you have to look at the different publics. You have the suppliers which they've actually benefited from this. You have Your community which. I told you they lost. You have might me personally. Which is a law said. The franchisees in the employees Remember all the proceeds out this lawsuit go to charity And so i don't get anything out of this except to give the money to charity Which is you know. I just wanted to clear my name because You know kids i've grandkids. And you just that on your record because it's it's it's nonsense. I couldn't say the employs ethan. I did everything. I could I knew they were going to do this to the employees and they picked up headquarters they kick these people in the street and they moved to atlanta thirty thirty four years and they heard a lot of people and the damage that this board of directors and your good friend steve ritchie did to the employees and executives. Here in louisville kentucky is just it's horrid. It's ord now so the answer question. The third party the franchisees the people that really helped me build this company. It helped me wealthy. I am keying this up for those guys. The franchisees are going to be in the catbird seat. When i get done with this board. And i get done with laundry service that you know they come in and say my gosh look with the executives of papa. John's did look with the board of directors did to the copy to this brand to the founder. Look at the damage they've done. The franchisees won't own papa. John's international for two cents on a dollar one day mark. My words the day of reckoning day of reckoning we are all waiting now papa. A lot of people have taken the day of reckoning to me in a lot of things for example. people have predicted. Maybe that you were talking about covid people. Maybe one of your pizza. Contemporaries passed away. Unfortunately people don't maybe you had they that you're you're prophesyzing day of reckoning. There was all kinds. is there asteroid coming. I mean how deep does this day of reckoning go are we talking about the stock prices or have you seen into the future. Something more ominous right now. We have a what we call a grace period. Because we're in pizza delivery business and everybody's locked up at home with covid so it's it's you can do nothing wrong in pizza business right now so that day is going to happen when that subsides and sales crash and all this other nonsense has been going on. It's really hurt this brand. That's gonna be magnified with the performance of the company. But i you know. I don't know if it's hot or on a little bit scott. Look at the last. Six months i've been able to sell hundreds of millions of dollars worth of stock at a premium because the covert by franchisees. My partners have more money in the last six months They ever had in louis. Freeh the best of the best. Just exonerated me from all this nonsense that i've had to deal with for the last two years so it's it's been hard but it's been a great six months and i. I feel fortunate. Now that the next phase the next fate is when kovic decides and all this comes out. What i'm telling you it really so accent what this board. And what is. Executive team did papa. John's international what they did the brand. In my opinion. That'll be the day of reckoning. Made it breath. yeah. I'm looking at the stock price and the stock price is is doing quite well. I mean at european as as the leader of papa. John it's basically at where was in papa john prime time. But you're saying i mean how. How can you go wrong during cove it like. How can you fail as a as a pizza company right now. It's even worse than that right now. Papa john's makes half the pretax profit in trades at the same price. You don't think that's a shell game. You don't think there's some some shenanigans going on there. i'll give you two examples. The c o of papa. John's comes out and says we have eight million new customers yet. The customers coming in the stores are less now than they were three years ago. See it's a slow game. We have eight million new customers well but you got less customers coming in so you see that we're gonna open fifty stores by who are ordering online. Well that's that is a percent has has gone up a little bit but let's say a three years ago you had a thousand customers today have probably nine hundred sixty customers so even you know so. It's a shell game we've they. They say we have eight new customers but they have a lot less people coming in the door so they have actually have less customers. Don't understand you have the entire come. I don't understand logic papa because people because it's it people aren't going inside their ordering online that will their order online as a percent about seventy percent of the business you know that hasn't changed we don't have any in In in ceding a table dining ethan. It's all delivery or carry out so maybe that pre covid was say five thirty five. Maybe it seventy thirty Online versus telephone are carry out. But that hasn't changed but the amount of customers ordering has gone down the last three years so in order to make make the sales look better. They jack up the price so the point is the wall. Street doesn't have the intelligence go. What's your traffic counts. Towards the guy says we have eight million new customers in the next question is how much is your traffic up. How many more customers you have coming through the door enhancer. That would be well. It's negative see it's it's a it's a it's a bad number. It sounds to me. Like the day of reckoning.

"So i think in summary if you look at the overall total for the dark triad you've got zaken first-place would coming in second and then third and dan actually fourth. This is so. I just kind of mean seriously how are you. How are you feeling. Act like on a real level are do does. Does this affect you. i mean obviously. We're not taking it too seriously. But i'm just kind of curious I knew i wasn't like other people interesting so There's that so when you say you mean when you. Abc has excuse himself. So when you say you knew you weren't like other people do you mean i. Guess what do you mean by that like howard. How did you see yourself as different than other people. I'm always willing to do something. Somebody else doesn't wanna do It could be an attention thing. It could be a what it is. But i'm joker brand. But i lost joker brain joker brain but after get through life. Now it's going to be a struggle but you know i'm gonna do it. God willing and dr young. Have you administer yourself on these tests I haven't done the try of myself. But drew i have both taken the npr. And how did you guys are just in fairness drew score. I think sixty and nineteen. I scored in eighteen and the dimensions on which both he score high tend to be things like community and self sufficiency and you find that a lot of people who are professors or attorneys either contract to stand up in front of people in lecture or to be in court. You have to have some kind of level of authority to come across as being someone who knows what they're doing. i scores. were all kind of bunched. You know kind of in that direction. And dr young i have. I make this a mandatory thing in the day in the year day of zoom calls. I like to ask all of our guests who are sitting on a green backdrop to turn it off for us As i see you're sitting on a very studious well lit library. Let's pull down the curtains books. Okay well let's see..

"Try it above the threshold interesting. Ab what do you think about that as someone who thought you were a to your according to the trade you have narcissistic traits. What are we able to go over some court. So there's actually a lot. But i mean i think before we do that on the dark triad gazillions of narcissism a different from the ones on the narcissistic personality inventory. So sometimes it's just a question of the touch of questions are actually being asked right so let me try and pull up so how this one works is you have a sliding scale of strongly disagree and strongly agree on a scale of one to five right and so so they ask you kind of similar questions. And then they gauge based on which bubble You you fill and so the different maybe more nuanced scale a forced choice. It's i. I gotta give up my studio in five minutes here so i'll be better. We better proceed with the reveal of you guys through the head. How do you go through these scores. Now or do you just go to the big reveal I sure i'm ready for the big reveal. I feel like all right. That's okay with me. But i'm going to abandon you guys I can come back to help. If this doesn't go. well it is. I just. I'm just you go so negative on these. I'll that's fair so just remember here. Let's get a sound bite of doctors saying something positive right and don't have to come back and say something positive on another day but just remind ourselves that this is not about being good or bad person. These are these are strategies for being in the world and sometimes the strategies have nothing to do or very little with how you feel inside a the way. Dr is talking. They think that one of these guys. As far mark luck. I i turns out. He didn't have the studio. And i thought i did but If if you need any emergency from to return like Lower owner stopping mark lease texts. Me okay do you have a nice recovery we got melissa rivers today streaming show and don't forget every day around three o'clock get all dr dot com got through that tv youtube slash. Dr drew will will be the doctor to everywhere. Dr drew is everywhere and he is coming at. Ya live guys. Good luck thank you. Wow stat bad on. Dr young and dan realized there was still another big deal. Oh there's a huge reveal okay. So let's start with so we were talking about ab scoring high on narcissism on the dark triad. And you were going to explain his results right. I saw the do is just you know there are nine questions for narcissism iphone. What i do is just go through the ones which she has a high score so first one is people. See me as a natural leader cracks at that.

"Did you buy you wanna go toe to hold on. I mean it's true a. b. you have never worn a cardigan. Did you buy that for this show or or did you always own the cardigan. Seeing it seems to be some friction between them. You guys can tell the doctor. That's a fucking sin because they're both competing for a heart throb and i'm married. I'm not competing. But but in this. I think a be in the same sensor is like i didn't choose to be the heart throb i didn't want to be the heart throb right right. I just chose to wear a carding in today. And just cut the and who is basically planes of enlightenment his disengaged he is in the serial realm of 'cause handle new level. He's in nirvana. Yea ah so. Let's talk about dan. How about dan score. yeah there are two other scores. We haven't done one. is dan. Dan eight hour forty really you. Maybe even more narcissistic than you. Apparently one point one point. Dan had one category where he expanded a great guy. Well thank you mr president. So where did you excel dan. What he He actually got a five out of seven on the authority. Oh that makes sense does to me. That's actually really good. Because he's our he's our producers. We liked that. I'm not sure makes sense makes a lot of sense. Yeah read me. The won t he. He answered he hit narcissistic on. Then who else. Didn't we read that. So for dan. On authority and again this was really the only category in which he scored significantly first question have a natural talent for influencing people or not good at influencing people. Well down you're blowing my cover. More people suspect that. I'm good at influence. Second question i will be a success. I have not too concerned about success. So wait what will which one. I am not too concerned about success or i am. You will be a success. Okay yes The mixed one. I'm not sure if i would make a good leader or i see myself as a good leader Then let's see dan. you've already up. Being in authority doesn't mean much to me or people always seem to recognize my authority carbon. That's true though you all are and that's just it's actually similar to what abo was describing like. I don't necessarily true. I don't necessarily go out of my way to try and seize authority and whatever situation. I am but it oftentimes seems to fall to me and i've become accustomed to stepping up to that. I guess i don't know. I look i look up to you i just. I just said that video. I that i said i admire you very much. Garde manger literally said the same thing and then you insult him for doctors. Think that zach holds. I feel like holds more than he's willing to admit or being dethroned as heartthrob. Yeah it's a little painful knocking. Line and zach had a deep bromance going on and we still do. We still interesting. It's on the rocks though. Fucked it up and then so so. This is one question. I would prefer to be a leader or it makes little difference to me whether i'm a leader or not got him. That's fine so that's everybody on the narcissist skill. that's everyone so. I think what one of our nurses upscale is part of the triad right. Okay so on the pure narcissism skill. I think we all pretty. I think we all did good. I mean in is enlighten. He's unlike in is like out of having an out of body experience right now. he's not even there. He's like mount everest assumption. Looking over looking over humanity there is zach no surprises there. i'm very happy in eli. I'm kind of. I really didn't know which way you go but let's move onto the dark triad because this one seems to be more comprehensive this one the dark triad. Oh and they called the dark.

I guess self perception is different from the way that that he answered things when when kind of put on the spot in sometimes very hard you have a feeling about yourself but when you're asked very specific things perhaps something else comes out. The i say it's it's part of the misconception of what narcissism is that you guys reacted to transact articulated the feeling associated with it. I think that's worth seeing here. In fact you'll see on some of the upcoming The other tests my brain is not working very well but Abe has some other interesting narcissistic. I often feel you often feel small insecure. When you're interesting interesting we are going to go to a quick break. And we'll be right back with our doctors and our psycho staff liquid. iv board. I love liquid. Iv and. either.

I'm not a cautious person. Describe yourself as a cautious person would you. I think that's complicated. The better option right. That suits you so the next question is i don't care about fads and fashion or i like to start your fads while share that one makes sense because he's a fashion designer so it's kind of struck a little bit home so those are the three Which she she chose to narcissistic choice. Interesting and again kind of looking through the survey is really nothing else that that pops out as significant to our debate on authority or two the seven on superiority and then a two hour seven self sufficiency see. I was thinking you would hit the authority. One hire because you seem because you la is a the c o creative director of her own company. And i would assume and you seem to handle authority fairly well and dictating to people and think i i think i do but i don't like to see myself as i. I like to see myself as part of the crew like even with teddy fresh. I like to think of myself as like. I'm in the trenches with them. He's feared by her employs. She rules with the iron fist. I in my head. I don't think of myself as like i got the. I don't know so she is the prince. She's both feared and loved to go back to the monkey. Dalian ism yellow scored on those on those brand.

I'm deeply insecure about myself. Nine years to get all the girls. Don't you know the truth. Be told i am deeply insecure about myself my body either. Listen to that that's part of narcissism elizabeth and this should be on kidding. We love no. Let's hear a very tender core that they protect by putting an atmosphere no sell on top of themselves they get to feed themselves to protect the core right and and that's really how i think of narcissism so the more of the borderline things there's other stuff going on but the exact just describe really well i think of narcissism. He just said he was insecure. For chri okay go ahead. Let's let's hear where he where he scores off the chart for us. Yeah okay so On authority he got five out of eight on superiority. You got five out of five. Oh wavering those questions a five out of five hundred superiority zach. I love it so superiority or when people couple let me i get embarrassed or i know that i'm a good person because everybody keeps telling me so. Know that reminds me that so reminds me. Kazak always tells us anecdote how when he goes to. The grocery store asks the cashier house her day going and he thinks that makes her day better. And we all. We all laughed. Because we're like she doesn't give a fuck if you ask hauser day you gotta you gotta put a smile on. Someone's face okay. Keep going on the next question. I have no better or no worse than most people or i think. I am a special purse. I think you're special person. Well thank you clearly. So do i. The next question is compliments. Embarrassed me or i like to be complemented fair. We all like to be complemented some more than others. The fourth question is. I wish someone would someday write my biography or i don't like people to pry into my life for any reason. You wanna biographies act. I would love a by. What's the story telling everybody they're young man. He's got a lot of life to live. No question is i m much like everybody else or i am an extraordinary person It's the i mean. Yeah you are extraordinary. We love you can play guitar. You're funny you're beautiful. thank you. But not the heartthrob. Yeah we are have you. Doctors no was recently dethroned as the podcast heartthrob he was replaced. By a as the power cast heartthrob by seventy five percent vote. Now how do you guys do. You think zack is going to be coping with that well because those two our friends at. I'm wondering if that's gonna be causing friction between them. Take another poll next week and see what happens after this episode well. Let's continue so superiority. He got a perfect score. And let me give some some some results on the other side. Given what jackson's just said on vanity. He only gets a one out of seven l. k. and unexploited business. No questions at all. No no mark's mattress damage. So what what do you mean by that you mean you're not exploitative person. He's not exploited person. He's he's not out to us people. Oh yeah that's is. So you're just a sweet narcissist. He's a very nice nurses. He thinks very highly of himself. But he's not trying to burn the world we liked that also on entitlements He only score the three out the six. I'm relieved it wasn't you eela. I was getting worried. Because i i don't know i'm kind of curious. I want to ask about because they feel like i am like such country dictating taught sometimes like on one hand. I can think oh. I'm talented and then on data and can think i hate everything. I do an awful. So i was wondering if i'm anita aside and we review results on the narcissism scale sure. What did so. Let's get a drum roll. What did he lescar. Let's take a guess. So you said fifteen is normal. Skin is fifteen is average. Okay move that drummer. All all right you lay your score. Out of forty is eleven. Oh yourself was saying. I mean obviously not a selfless as me. But that's really nice. Okay nice must be nice. I feel like you shouldn't feel bad about that. Back because you score high on like self value but low on exploitative. I think that's very. Yeah yeah you explain yesterday. A lot of these metrics you know some of them are positive or potentially positive traits while others are more negative. You sounds like you scored higher on the more positive self confidence ones. I hear it because you guys have a tendency to put you know Valence on these. We make everything back in judgment. Who failed the test. I know so. Tell me where ula strayed from the enlightened path. Would you please doc. It's interesting because Her scores kind of distributed across five different categories and it is in no particular category issue high. So i would say that. The ones Where she got little bit high guess is exhibitionism. She got three hours seven really. When is that. it's like would you like to be seen and look at right. Yeah the once you she flops. On their so interesting exhibition is a mula. I don't that maybe maybe let's find out absolutely. Because i just think of that as a porn category i mean right doesn't everybody i don't even know so i don't even know i was thinking of her to be like. I mean recognize fashion and every thinking about porn. When are you not what might not so here. Are the three questions related to her. Scores on exhibitions of the first one is either. The modesty doesn't become me or i am essentially a modest person. So wait which so. What did she answer. Because kind of rate it's a great example of how it's a force dance answer very similar. One is a predictive value in the has interesting. So which one did she answer. She answered modesty doesn't become me which is kind of like an immodest answer not yet honestly. There may be a little bit of an english barrier there. Because i still even right now. Don't really completely understand the difference so modesty doesn't become like i'm saying i'm not a modest person i would ever. What's the next one different different. It's like i'd rather not be modest burs because it's not attractive on me see. I don't think i understood that. So what's the next one. Let's let's see the next one. Is i would do almost anything on a dare or i tend to be fairly cautious purse. What you would do anything on a dare..

"Who got to do. Is that even possible. How can you be so selfless. I've actually never seen a too. I feel like they're lying though five. I've seen a five. And and i actually worry about those people with you. Don't have a healthy narcissist right. Either we'll do. Do you ever wonder if somebody's lying on this test because it seems outrageous. Well you know some people say that they tried to second guess you know the the answers to make themselves right certain type away but the survey is designed in such a way that very very hard to do that for every question especially on to some kind of time pressure so what we try to do is to tell people. Just write down your first emotion. You know with the thing to see the thing that the answer to their resonates with you immediately. And that's what we try to okay so we have one narcissist and we have one pussy. Why with well. I'm just trying to make you like super self. Hating self loathing is how would you characterize someone with a two on narcissism. Are they pussy. Are they self loathing. How can we demean them. I think it's a question of demeaning. I think that These are just seven aspects of human behavior. Yeah yeah yeah yeah it. Tell me like what what would be a personality defect to someone with a two. He may have trouble with self-sufficiency. I could see and Leadership may not be a great quality. Right maybe harvesting other people You certainly are going to have issue even issues but you don't feel great about your body and showing it. that's okay. this is really interesting so on the high. So i think we all suspect zach is going to be the narcissists just because you get up to the weird shit bro you just get up to the weird. Ab main thrown. Around in the air. To see i would suspect e abc of being the The really forbach better words to do now. I think maybe ian no in's crazy. No i think he ends normal. What you guys. What am i. What am i here passing judgment on everybody. Because i organize all of this. I know the answer. So i don't feel like i should really shines for fear of giving away i am should we say What tristesse was yeah. Sure what you yeah. Of course she. Maybe i like. I don't understand myself that i could. I worry that might be both of the options like no. You're not the to maybe vic. I hate looking at myself home. But i think i have read a lot of contradicting audience interested in my mind so i wonder if i'm would be one of the two anomaly. Which is insane breakers down mart shore the different component. Okay well well. let's all take. Let's all take a guess and then butts breakdown. Zack in i'm abm forcing you guys to to take a guess. Well in terms of the two i mean you mentioned previous. Show how we're both kind of self haters. Also how she described herself kind of how. I feel very similar like i feel. I could be either way. So kind of feel like meals to the narcissist is My boys for folks. What's the evidence for that and everybody knows it's you and since the moment that i mentioned that this was the case. I want to point out that you've said nothing but that it's definitely you. I wanted to know my shrink on standby you know like well day. That's you know what i mean. We're not here to treat you. We're just here to call you out. Why are you not saying. Anything is the narcissist. Because i'm selfless thank you the to i mean i've kind i'm loving some people refer to me. Is that really the patron saint of the podcasts. I give i give everything of me to others. I think is normal. Take a series. That's my guess. So you think you're the narcissist now you're selfless kind all giving your the to. Yes i think he thinks the nurse. Now i already did. I already did the ad faith. And because he revealed his results with tricia yesterday so maybe we should made that clear. I was a seven right. Is that right. Dr seven on what out of forty at of should also tell you guys that there are three people. Eason's one of them who have scores under eight. Wow is too. there's a five and as a seven era so this is a very low self.

"The okay. Here's you got the narcissistic personality inventory costs. Would she wanted. she's looking for. Yes exactly so. This is very interesting. So we've all been trying to guess who psycho among us. Then get before you get to. Who's the psycho i. I have to respond to any show that went up and social. Media's going a little crazy so so doctor dr jew personnel hold on. You got out of a colonoscopy we need to. I literally the reason. I literally left the hospital. Here's why i taste. I still have my stupid tag on. Did they tell you the results you have to weigh the like. You're absolutely right. It's all good lynch syndrome. So i have to these on a regular basis and mike. This is far. But i promise you guys ever tried to come in here and i was telling you before the mike's heated up at the felt very much like yesterday show but Remain continues on media. Should know so. I read the comments. And dr drew is being a visceral rated in the calm. Yeah we'll actually compared to what. I used to getting on social media. Your your fans are actually kind of pleasant. But he was. Because they're gonna buck oh you they're they're fine but the note is and i understand why they feel this way is that i was in validated. Your feelings i was siding with tricia right and in a way i was. I was trying to get you member. One the original goals when i first came on the show is to help you understand and manage trish right right right so doing more of that. I end to be fair. Mean she has some stop and she's been very open about it and it requires an approach. And does that if you don't if you don't use that approach. Which is you know. Certain kind of containment things spin out of control very easily so well no from. I'll say from my perspective and all the guys also here in the studio. I did not expect that reaction. Yeah i i was here after the finished and Everyone saying it was great and then we were all surprised by the comments. I was surprised that everyone was that. The common sense and i feel i understood that. That's what you were trying to do you. did you one day. We need to help you in any way support you need. I feel like you know. If i say i felt that ethan was really handling her very well on that one episode where things blew out of control. I think basically what it was is that he was trying to explain my position. He i feel like he's totally. Fine and I do think we learned a lot from that episode you about tricia because we actually get along really well no so It was just the miscommunication kinda go out of control those little bit. If you remember anything yesterday i was trying to get you withdraw from some of that. You know it's a no win to get get out. Don't delay thing anyway. So we're good. Yes we're good your dam. No no no. Of course i never. I was surprised by that. I understood what you were trying to do. And i wasn't at any point like this. Dr drew doesn't get me and he's just on tristesse. I wasn't feeling that you know. Yeah okay so that so. Thank you for clearing that up. Yeah guys be easy and poor doctor. He just had a camera up his ass. Closer to two days in a row yeah. Today's come on for guy back or this. Okay so now in our mets is someone and forgive me for saying this doctors off the chart psychotic. Now we're trying to guess we're trying to guess who it is for example the characteristic be of that person like how do i so find it. I'll the so basically the doctor. We took three personality. Tests are sorry to we took two personalities one of them is a determinant of narcissism. And then he was worried. I don't think it's you but you is worried. And then the second one is called the dark triad see. I learned a lot from the lhasa which basically is narcissism psychopathy and moore and Machiavelli which is my favorite. Basically like this person might murder someone yes no. Let's not do that. It is essentially again. We we went to great lengths yesterday. I don't wanna be too repetitive. Because i'm sure everyone watched it but basically you know machiavelli is is like conning it's like a conning you know a manipulative stuff like that. So that's just the one so the first one let's first start with the narcissism. Okay so did anybody score high on the narcissism test and then. I want to try to guess who it was yes in addition to tricia to thirty out of forty there is one person who got a twenty eight out of forty. And there's another person.

I would like to begin. And by having you share with us a little bit about the war memorial and Performing Arts Center. I think for most San Francisco people. They walked by it there a McAllister and Venice across from City Hall and they're like, oh it's a month old building. So it would be great if you could get a share or Memorial and how the memorial and Performing Arts Center work with Arts and Cultural organizations to say, we're just go. Oh absolutely. Thanks for having us on George excited to be here today. The San Francisco war memorial and Performing Arts Center is in the heart of San Francisco, right across Van Ness Avenue San from San Francisco City Hall. We have a number of performer venues here including Davies Symphony Hall the War Memorial Opera House and then inside the Veterans building. We have the Herbst theater. There was a center for Opera which hosts both the Toby Atrium theater and the Brian Crain station studio. And we also have a really fabulous event space called The Green Room all in all we can host over 7,000 patrons any given evening and pre covid-19 do that with juice. The ballet performing alongside the symphony San Francisco performances being in Herbst theater all that could happen in one night. So we're both a home for culture and art in San Francisco as well as a huge economic driver for the region. We've been here since nineteen thirty-two. Our resident company is the San Francisco Ballet the San Francisco Opera the San Francisco Symphony and then San Francisco performances, of course is off the primary users of the Herbst theater, and we've had a long partnership with them as well. So I think that we're one of the cornerstones of cultural activity in San Francisco and really proud to be a department of the city county of San Francisco and then fun fact a historical the charger for the was actually signed their trips theater. That's correct. All of the plenary sessions took place in the Opera House. The UN Charter was signed off stage of what was then the veterans Auditorium, which is now known as the Herbst theater and the Japanese peace Accord was also negotiated in the opera house. So we're really big site for history. A lot of folks don't understand wage. Why UN Plaza is called UN Plaza, but it's called UN Plaza because indeed the charter was signed here and for a brief period they actually almost put the headquarters of the United Nations here in San Francisco before they decided to place them in New York. Yeah, we host a lot of history here and still continue to provide a meeting space to Veterans groups and a number of other non-profits working on behalf of veterans causes here in San Francisco. So

Emma rebel I'm a rebel I always have been I don't think that that makes me me. I was born the year of the Horse. So freedom is really important to me. Running wild is really important to me. I'm a capricorn also release stubborn and totally believe in these things. By the way I'm a capricorn and I'm just really ambitious and stubborn. I liked just do things my own way and my back is there a conversation that you had were they were like? That's what you want. That's fine. BP Don't live here anymore. Absolutely. Absolutely it was it was masked in other things. It was like Oh Cynthia was being like if you ask my parents, they'll be like, oh, she was being difficult. She was rebellious and I know it's like I wanted to do things all around I was just an artist and you can't trap an artist. It was absolutely like if you wanna live your life the way you WanNa live, your. Life. You can't do it in this house if you don't WanNA conform right like if you don't WanNa live see. No kidding me. Away glass you need to go. And and I did it was the best decision I ever made in my life because I needed to be free and I needed to take that risk and I was homeless for a while I lived with some released weird people for a few weeks and months, and then my mother Dina. Came back into the picture was like you're not gonna live on the street. You're not going to be with all these crazy people. I'm GonNa take you in and she's she nurtured me for a few months. I would say almost a year guiding me encouraging me to fulfill my dreams and then I reconnected when I was about nineteen years old with the very first director that I had ever worked with on a sketch comedy show and I was like sixteen or seventeen, who at the time in Miami was doing a project for John called Moti mortally. And he was this like Big New York director who was making moves in Los Angeles and doing all kinds of stuff and when I connected with him and I was like hey. I WANNA act and I want to go to Los Angeles and like I don't know anyone there. Can you help me? He was like absolutely you should've you should have been I'm so glad that you wanna be an actresses exactly what you should be doing. You have a lot of talent I'm going to help you. Then though twenty twelve, you moved to New York, to train at on the road repertory company is that right? Yeah. Yeah. With Alice Spe- back. So take me back to deciding to make that leap I trained as a dancer. So for me I always knew that like I can't get onstage nobody how much natural talent I have I can't get on stage and do you know a a bunch of times and leaps in all in jumps in all? Of these things without having trained a performance day in and day out for hours, and even though I had a lot of natural talent as far as acting goes, I didn't go to college for acting didn't get a degree in this till this day it's always been a chip on my shoulder like man I wish I could have gone and why you man I wish I could have done Tisch like man I wish I would have had that. I didn't. So I knew that I needed to train with the Best I. knew that I couldn't necessarily call myself an actor without studying the greats without studying Shakespeare without studying much theater as possible I was already working in La at the time I already had a manager I really had an agent. I had already had credits under my name I had done a couple of movies and TV shows. But I felt like a bullshit artist didn't believe myself. I was like how the hell am I gonNA call myself an artist if I have never really trained theater so I moved to new. York. and. That's when I really sunk my teeth. Into, what I know as an actor natural talent helps a lot and like I feel like I'm a really sensitive person and I've had a lot of things on my life that have really formed and shaped me on this journey to be an actress but. Honing down those skills and studying the greets in is probably the most important aspect of my training.

Talking Liberty With President & CEO Greg Maffei
"Greg thank you for being here today and I've been wanted us for a long time. So thank you for being on kindred cast and you seem like you were getting a little bit tired and exhausted just hearing all these titles and responsibilities but imbedded within all of us is superior shareholder returns along the way across the portfolio definitely. You're proud of I think. That's why stills getting to sit in the chair by reference that we met during your three sixty networks days a long time ago when I used to cover the bonds and ran that company which was in fiber company generally speaking like the old days but even with Microsoft. I remember when you made the investment in comcast in one thousand nine hundred seven which was a billion dollar investment in the cable business. You were sort of the first to bring the technology industry together with the media industry and the cable industry in that respect a very long time ago. When I was at Microsoft we were very interested. In what the cable industry was doing to build out high speed data build out the high speed Internet Bill Gates and I spent a bunch of time with a lot of people in the cable. Business including Brian Roberts comcast including John Malone thrilling. When I first met him back in ninety three we tried to sell them set top boxes. We tried to drive a lot of things. We were very instant what they were doing with at home. Which was the primary vehicle. Another one road runner which are the primary consortium vehicles to build up that high speed data and eventually Ryan Roberts is the one I said. Look if you want to help us. You should put money and all the cable companies but the only one who really stepped up and wanted our money. Initially we did a bunch more Brian. So then we ended up buying seven percent of comcast and I was on observer on the board so that was my first exposure to cable. Yeah it was a real catalyst. I remember for evaluation starting to rise again people's concerns being alleviated about what the future of cable could be seen as perpetual petrol theme right when you have these traditional media businesses that are always count out in the age of Technology and innovation disruption. And all of a sudden you have real endorsement and it sustains itself and brought Bannon's everything else obviously there are examples that went the other way like newspapers and other things you know. We were lucky twice or I've been lucky twice to catch the right cycle. We did very well in that comcast investment road at up on the growth of high speed data. And then really again when we did charter in two thousand thirteen sort of caught if not a bottom of near bottom on the industry's accelerated since yeah. Is that the way that you think about? Investing and think about buying companies is that you're somewhat countercyclical because obviously given your perch and your history in the industry you could have expertise in any number of areas. So how do you prioritize it? What do you think about? What drives your successes your approach? I wish we were that systematic or organized. Yeah you definitely have to have a thesis and oftentimes. It's gotTa be tacking against conventional wisdom because conventional wisdom gets valued to the Max. And if you're following along that's a really hard place to be. It may work for a while and it kind of momentum play but it's hard to sustain so finding things are out of favor is certainly a good place to start and doesn't mean it'll nestle get back into favor but it's a good place to look. I can also speak to. The other side doesn't matter how clever you were in emerging telecom in the early two thousands when I was running sixty when the capital goes away and when the trend blows up on you you're GONNA have a lot of problems all the emerging telecom companies. But when you think about the career and it is a unique path right. And obviously we'll get to the liberty part of your career now but when you think back at your evolution as an executive and as an investor what do you point to to be sort of like those key moments where you've got to be really good at your craft and obviously it's a humbling experience every single day. But how do you think back at your path and wise unique and differentiated versus others again? I'm not sure there's a systematic thing. I've tried to keep my doors open but I know I've also gone just incredibly lucky to be at Microsoft of the right time and place to move. When I was really from Dillon Reed over to CITICORP venture capital eventually get out to Seattle to get an John Malone and for him decide. I was the right person to come here where there was a lot of things that were available to fix. Initially we got some early wins and to have the perch so Microsoft needed my skill set at the time. They really didn't have it. Liberty could use my skill set but I could have end up someplace where a lot of smart people could have filled that role or I could have been someplace where your skill set wasn't necessarily so highly valued so there's a lot of selling yourself short by saying it's all lack. I look back at my business school class. A lot of smart men and women smarter than I am or accomplished who didn't necessarily ended up. Lisa metrics having same mobile success some degree. That's the luck of. Where do they end up? Where did I end up? What was needed at the time when we ended up at that spot right? Well let's talk about how you got the liberty then so Dr John Malone needed a CEO of liberty media. How did that come about? And what came to be where it was attractive to you? I'd known John. Since ninety three and he actually been on the board of three sixty networks investor and three six networks. I've lost all his money there. But he's still talk to me. He said I was good at generating tax losses in early two thousand five or mid two thousand five. I got a call from mutual friend of ours. Who said John Malone wants you to come liberty? Do you want to talk to and you. At Oracle the time Oracle. I only been three. I said sure like to talk to John. I mean I'd known him for twelve years. That Point Pete served on a board company Iran so I knew reasonably well. We'd actually talked about various ways we might work together so John Calls Me and says who could run liberty and I thought he was going to call about me. I said nothing comes right to mind. I think about some names so I called the mutual friend back and said well. He got me but he didn't want my name. He was asking for other names so and the friend said he wants to. He wants. He's just playing with you. Then he called back and said you know maybe you'll be the guy that's pretty funny. Well played so will happen so I joined in November of two thousand five as I there was. I think a bunch of relatively low hanging fruit of things to fix clean up and you know in any job. It's always get some early wins because it gives you credibility to make bigger bets. Yeah did you have a an understanding with John when he became? Ceo of how you both would divide the responsibilities already just all in it together. You were giving us a lot more credit than I think. The only thing I remember John Offer. Let me send something like the future is what you make it or something like that. It was a pretty open canvas and if you look nobody would have predicted enormous change when I joined in five today. What liberty looks like and nobody would predicted where we would go right now in the John. Ri- nobody but was there a mandate was there a vision or an objective or again with more of a two smart people getting together and try and make the right investments. Look I think John Appreciate? I'd come out of the technology side and had some familiarity with that in. Oh five if you WANNA look like a relatively. Technically strong person. Coming out of Microsoft helped compared to being traditional media players. I certainly wouldn't put myself up as a technology expert on a relative basis. That was helped. Yeah we'll plus you understood. I feel like capital structure and CFO like dynamics which would help with tax and shareholder value. And not just strategic deal making. When I was at Microsoft we did all these Put ones we were buying our stock back and we were selling against it and it was sort of a we knew we had big tailwind that we made up a bunch of money on this porn. And it's because it's in your own stock it's tax free. John loved that it was fascinated with that so Chinese doughy say the put warrant guy or something like that he was always happy because that's John Malone kind of play. Yeah well how do we think about liberty media because from the outside looking in just taking a eagle in the sky perspective for a second is unclear whether liberty media is a public private equity firm? That just happens to invest in media assets or Obscene Media Operating Company or to leveraged bet on the industry what is Liberty Media and hatchery benchmark or is it just a unique animal altogether book. I think you could say it's all three of those things in various times. It's malted when I first got here. We really owned very few assets in total on. Qvc was the only one we have any scale. We had a bunch of minority positions. And we've actually swapped for control or more influential positions. Barwane more positions over time. We'd like to think we try to do it. In this parts of the industry with our history as a company with John's vision John's expertise and contacts. We've had some insights into perhaps where we thought things would do. Better and where we thought we'd get worse and been able to trade our way out of those hopefully not inefficient or trade. Are we in to the good ones? And so that's been somewhat of a bet on the best parts of media. We'd like to think from where we could actually make progress. You'd love to be some of these places but you can't get in any smart way so it's not like it's an obvious bad to buy the stock but we've tried to promote the thing to a more operating assets being happy also being places where we have a influential position but on the right side of where the trends are
Hurricane Irma May Have Destroyed Barbuda's Generations-Old Land System
"On the Caribbean island of barbecued a land cannot be bought or sold. The whole island is shared communally. And it's been that way since the eighteen hundreds but planet money any Sara Gonzalez went there and found that capitalism is creeping in. Antigua and Barbuda are two islands. That make up one country. Antigua is mountainous and touristy see with about ninety eight thousand residents. That's where the government is Barbuda's flat flat like a penny with just fifteen hundred residents. It's the kind of island where wild donkeys. Angie's just walk into your home call and where no one wants lobster anymore. We love breakfast. We did for lunch for dinner. We'd love to three times a day. That's Atkinson Beezer beautiful. Bob Yuda when this is Natalia. John Calls her. Hey go take out new. And they both got land for their homes. The way everyone else in Barbuda's gets it people just go cut what they want. Clear it and stop bill. Just take a piece of land and be like okay. There's my this is my land. That's so that's so. We usually do perfect. No money no money not even taxes not even taxes then even like a permit fee nothing like really zero zero dollars zero zero dollars free free. No paperwork no lease no title Bob. Yuda has the greatest land deal on earth. This is Albert Patty Simon. They're calling me the grill. It simply mean a verbal historian. Back in Sixteen eighty-five Colonization Times Simon. The grio says this English Guy Christopher conjuring ten least the whole island of Bermuda from the king. Oh Yeah Cadran. On on was a slave master. He had his slaves over there. The entire island was made up of five hundred. Enslaved people at its peak and one white manager and his family and when slavery was abolished and the white manager finally left. There were no white people on the island. Just formerly enslaved people so they stayed so the people are left alone left. They're they're sorta live happy. Held the whole island in common. That's what it's called and no one ever came in and said but wait wait. You need property. Titles at some point Barbadians do start leasing. Land there are a few beachfront hotels and resorts but barbadians never sold the land and it stayed this way until twenty seventeen when hurricane. Irma had a lot of win. And then you you just just say a window Saturday. Birthday Bash. You know this. Is Natalia John Again. Almost all the buildings Bermuda were damaged know roofs. No doors Barbieri. We're totally exposed. And they heard another hurricane was coming in three days. The prime minister who lives in Antigua orders a mandatory evacuation and barbarians are like wait everyone the entire island. Everybody Alpha Bob. Yuda really the Prime Minister Gaston Brown. Says the government doesn't have the money to rebuild. Any focuses focuses on the island's most obvious acid. The land says he thinks his whole communal land thing is a big misunderstanding. Which is the Bob? wtdn have always carried this myth. Perhaps maybe a couple of hundred years that they own the land. You say that Barbuda's I have been thinking that they own the land. It is a myth that they own the land but there is a law that parliament the Antiguan. Barbian government passed. That says I just want to read. The the first sentence says enact to confirm that all land in Barbuda's is owned in common by the people of Barbuda right so so it was a dangling piece of legislation he repeals. The law tells Barbadians that you have been living on for free all these years new plan. We're going to sell it to you for one dollar eastern Caribbean. About thirty seven cents. US and now you'll have a title and you can take title to a bank to get a loan. Mm to rebuild your home that type of property rights system is quintessential to the advancement of e country.

The Battle of the Cornflakes
"February nineteen eight in louisiana. Intrepid woman in a lace fringed petticoat makes her way through the streets of jefferson city. She pauses at the corner of magazine berlin across the way is the creole cottage that houses her local grocer. She smooths her skirt fixes her face with more confidence than she feels and heads ads for the stores swing doors will kellogg put her up to this and not just her but all the women of america is latest commercial for kelloggs cornflakes cheaply dares women to wink at their grocer and quote see what they get for nineteen hundred eight. These ads are bold old and racy stuff but it's working beautifully now like thousands of others. This woman's taking kellogg up on the bear in her case. There's something more at stake. She's been looking for a reason to wink this particularly sweet store on her for some time. Now the grocer dressed in a white shirt and suspenders notices the woman the moment she enters good afternoon ms coleman. What may i get you. This fine day like she's for hearst miss. Miss coleman says nothing. She just winks the grocer smiles. You've seen those kellogg's ads my right. Ms coleman blesses well. Here's what that wink gets you this here. Free box of kellogg's toasted corn flakes a gift from the company. The grocer fetches. She's a white box off the shelf behind him and puts it on the counter. Oh what most wonderful surprise miss coleman notices something odd about the box wchs it looks like a box of cornflakes but it's not it's actually a box of kelloggs toasted rice flakes rice flakes. I did not know they made rice flakes. The grocer glances at the box. Oh i'm sorry ms coleman gave you the wrong bucks. The boxes do look very similar as is the grocer gets a box of cornflakes. Ms coleman looks again at the rice flakes or rice flakes pleasant. I've not tried yet but it it is made by kellogg's so i imagine it'd be pretty good in that case. I'll i'll buy a box n._b._a. Could try them and tell you what they're like. I'd like that very much. Coleman appraises ten cents same as cornflakes moments later this coleman leaves with her free box of cornflakes and the rice flakes and an excuse is to talk to the handsome grocer again but what she doesn't realize is that those rice flakes the same kellogg who makes cornflakes they're made by his brother dr john harvey kellogg and the confusion john's created with his branding is driving his younger brother nuts will thought his battles with john were over but now his brother's stealing his customers and will won't stand for it. He's no longer the downtrodden little brother subservient servian to john's every cruelty today. He's a successful industrialist with money and resources of zone dr john harvey kellogg. No longer has an underling underling to prop himself up. He's about to be shown up by the least likely person imaginable someone. He spent his whole life calling worthless from wonder this is american innovations and i'm steven johnson on the last episode. The kellogg brothers discovered the secret making flaked breakfast cereal. The masses had only just been introduced to ready to eat cereal created by their very own former battle creek sanitarium patient charles post. That's bird will keep kello to finally break free from his brother and found the battle creek toasted corn flakes company. Now it's nineteen. The weight and the tables are turning on the brothers lifelong few as it happens. The country is in the throes change to john will play a role in a sinister scientific movement laying the groundwork for unfathomable atrocities within his lifetime. Both the siblings have lasting impacts on america as we know it today safe but only one we'll give the name kellogg the meaning it's remembered by this is episode three battle of the brand it's august nineteen a week and we'll kellogg heads down mainstream in battle creek. A straw hat shielding his bald scalp from the summer heat. The look on his face is far from sunny. That's because the cereal tycoon is preoccupied with thoughts about his brother's latest intrusion on his business us right now he's trapped in his thoughts to notice just how dramatically he and john have transformed the town of their youth back then it was a small country settlement now it pulses with the wonders of modernity red and green trams rattled down the streets lined with electric lights lights and telephone poles the constant influx of new arrivals fuels a construction boom in a growing downtown marketplace factories are everywhere and they're not only turning out the breakfast. Foods battle creek is famous for their also making the ovens boxes conveyor belts and other equipment cereal manufacturers depend and on and it all began with the kellogg brothers they put this michigan town on the map by turning the battle creek sanitarium into a world famous health resort resort they kindled local industry with their innovative ready to eat breakfast cereals but will feels no pleasure from their shared achievements when he thinks of john all he feels is spite especially today. The latest batch of acrimony began last year. You're will started it when he gave his battle creek toasted cornflake company a new name the kellogg toasted cornflake company will new john john would object to the name and that he would try to use his position on the company's board to obstruct the change so we'll get the board to approve the new name while john was away in europe by the time. John got back to battle creek. It was too late. John brooded over his brother's sneaky move for a a few months and then began executing his retaliation. Just before new year's day nineteen hundred eight he resigned from the board of wills company it told will he wanted to spend more time. Focusing on the status nut food company the food business he'd formed in eighteen ninety eight is an offshoot of the sanitarium and the first thing he did was renamed his food business kellogg's food company of battle creek. The name was designed to inflate his is products with his brothers and it did now. Wholesalers roasters and customers alike struggled to differentiate between the two kellogg companies anthony's even the post office getting their mail mixed up once john begins manufacturing rice and wheat flakes. He makes his packaging indistinguishable bowl from his brother's cornflakes. The brothers have now both threatened the other with lawsuits. Their lawyers are poised for action just waiting for the word as he makes his way through downtown battle creek. We'll consider his options. He knows an ugly court battle hurt the company's brand. Getty eighty cannot stomach the idea of being exploited by his brother yet again. What's more willis obligated to defend the interests of his investors. John mauer competitor competitor a threat to the livelihoods of everyone who works at kellogg's we'll cannot sit by as sales or lost as bad as he wants to fight and when he figures he has to take one final shot at reconciliation to avoid courtroom showdown his dreadful hand-wringing is suddenly intolerable eligible to him now is the time we'll changes direction he heads north of michigan avenue and crosses the spaniel arched bridge approach that stretches over the glimmering waters battle creek he then heads west through the leafy streets and pass the sprawling fenced off grounds of the battle creek week sanitarium thirty minutes later he reaches john's large gothic revival home on manchester street will marches up painted needed white steps to the front door that twenty room house john calls the residents he removes his straw hat mops his sweaty brow and bangs to brass door knocker john's wife ella opens the door. She's a stern woman with grey curly hair. The moment she sees will her face darkens. Oh it's you low. Ella pleasure as always is john here. L. turns her back to will and yells else. John will is at the door as they wait for john will in l. a. eyeball each other on the doorstep in frosty silence they no longer pretend not to hate each other eventually. John appears in the doorway or do you want. I want to reach an accommodation. This dispute has gone far enough l. A. snaps at will yes it has it's about time you stopped using john's good name to enrich yourself wills composure snaps me me. He's the one riding on my coattails. He never cared about the cereal business until he saw my success now. He wants it from self because he cannot stand anyone anyone but him getting the glory how dare you we both know that i am the real kellogg. They buy your cereal because they think i'm the one selling it. Your success is a parasite parasite on mine will looks down and steadies himself against the bile of his hatred. He reminds himself why he's here and forces out a reasonable tone own john. What you're doing will ruin both our companies. If this ends up in court it will embarrass us. Both l. sets off so do what john says. John cuts across his wife ellen. Please but will speak. Thank you let me clear brother. I will go to court if i must. I just hope and pray that there's a better way to resolve this after our negotiating on the doorstep john and will reach an agreement john will stop selling cereals under the kellogg nick in return will will pay john fifty thousand dollars plus additional stock in the cornflakes business. It's the two brothers shake hands but the truce lasts less than a month a few weeks later. John has a change of heart and hostilities resume for the next two years. The animosity subterfuge and retaliation escalates as does the success of their cereal companies under will's autocratic leadership kellogg toasted cornflakes company thrives nineteen ten. He's selling millions of boxes axes of flaked breakfast cereal every year john's enjoying more modest success with his newest product sterilized brand. It's a serial made from the fiber. Rich outer layer of wheat grain john's promoting it as a constipation remedy. It's a powerful selling point in one thousand nine. John sells around a hundred thousand boxes of sterilized brand. The sales of sterilized brand aren't much of a threat to will cereal empire but john's copycat packaging coaching is unlike will john refuses to add salt sugar and other flavorings to his breakfast cereals that worries

'Do I Know You?' And Other Spam Phone Calls We Can't Get Rid Of
"All right. Cell phones. Have made our lives easier for sure. But lately, when you pick up the phone, you are likely to hear something like this message concerning your unsecured credit debt. These spam calls make up at least a quarter of all phone calls in the United States, but there is hope the FCC is set to vote today on rules clarifying that phone companies can step in to block these unwanted calls. NPR's Yuki Noguchi has that story by now. This is a familiar drill the phone rings. It's not a familiar number. Is it important or yet another spam? Call the problem of phone spam is so pervasive. It's creating related nuisances for people like to KOTA hill. He says he gets a hundred junk calls every month and also gets calls from people who think he's spamming them, they call saying do I know you or why did you wait me up? And that was definitely an angry one. In fact, he'll hadn't placed any of those calls. His number had been spoofed that is fraudsters used software. Trick? The caller ID system to make it appear as though calls were coming from hills phone. He explains this over and over to the people calling him and not. Every caller is understanding one woman, chastised him. She went on and on about how I was letting people use my phone and not controlling them. There is an irony here. The cellphone has become our everything our wallet photo archives, computer and music library. But it's also becoming less useful as a phone consumer reports found seventy percent of people, no longer answer calls, they don't recognize regulators and industry are combating John calls, but at least far having succeeded. In fact, the Federal Communications Commission, which regulates phone companies had its own spam problem, Patrick Weber, heads the agency's consumer bureau. We've seen recently scammers using our number spoofing, our number to try to convince consumers there from the in some Wigan, get money out of them. He says bam calls are the number one. Consumer complaint and the agency's top priority. The FCC is demanding all US phone. Carrier's install technology to verify calls and flag potential spam. The deadline is the end of this year. Jonathan Nelson is on the front lines of this battle Nelson, is director of product management at Haya a Seattle technology startup that's designing ways to block spam. He tracks phone calls across the US on giant computer monitors, this huge vast area of green, which is good. All the good calls. But then there's little red areas bounces along. You know, it's the scammers Nelson says, they devise clever new ways of bilking people. The latest being the one ring scam which emerged may third that day Nelson's monitors turned a flurry of read. It was explosion of calls. We never seen that level of all your before in this case, robocaller hang up after one ring hoping to trick the victim, and the calling back on an expensive international toll line likely to west Africa, scammers profit by. Taking a portion of the added fees. Many scams prey on fear of arrest or investigation by government agency targets include immigrants tax payers, debtors or retirees. Skims cost Americans an estimated ten billion dollars a year. They're success Nelson says is making people skeptical about answering calls. We're kind of seeing the death of the phone call. Most cell phone carriers recognize they need to step up. Chris -opay associate general counsel for Verizon wireless. He says this year, the companies investing more than ever in technologies to detect identify and trace jump calls. There's an arms race where they are looking to evolve to get around some of the protections, we haven't place. I would say that the carriers are not winning that arms race or I think that's true. The key here is to restore trust and voice calls doing. So waste says won't be easy because telephone networks are so interconnected. If another wireless carrier doesn't flag spam. Call Verizon's network might not recognize. It's a problem. That's just one way, he says spammers might still get through Yuki Noguchi NPR news. Washington.

So he heads on over to Paul's house just a few blocks from Abbey Road together. They finished John's verses and round out the tune by adding a fragment from one of Paul's then old number he'd never managed to us. As soon as John? Here's Paul sing that couple of he says. Yeah, that's it. This is how John Paul write music. Quickly intuitively, finishing each other's ideas. Sometimes they have trouble remembering who wrote what that's how closely they work together. But they're not done with this song yet, they wanna make it wilder more Avalon guard. Abbey Road studios, February tenth nineteen sixty seven and the Beatles. The most famous band in the world are throwing a party. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards of their so as Marianne faithfull, and Graham Nash. Oh, and a forty piece orchestra dressed in tuxedos, clown, noses and rubber bald caps. The bizarre attire is meant to loosen the buttoned up classically trained musicians. So they'll deliver what Paul wants? We'd like you to do some free form improvisation. The orchestra is confused by the request. They wanna please them after all he's Paul McCartney. But classical musicians don't really do free form improvisation. Producer George Martin steps in. Okay. We don't want complete free form we want each individual musician to climb from lowest no to highest at his own pace the orchestra nods. They try over and over to do what they're asked John dressed in a crushed velvet jacket and sipping wine from teacup watches from the sidelines. He wrote most of the sun, but he's fine. Letting Paul cokes the orchestra into performing what John calls and orgasm of sound. Paul tries to make John's concept come alive, urging musicians to randomly play an ascending scale growing louder until they climax on the same chord on the eighth try. They finally mail it. Everyone knows they've just witnessed something special.
