In nineteen seventy-three either remaining members of fleetwood. Mac told their manager cliff davis that they needed a break from touring and instead of making that happen. Davis decided to hire a fake version of the band under the same name. Play the tour dates that the real band didn't make that's and the whole incident resulted in a lawsuit over who owned the band's name so davis booked. Us dates for the all new fleetwood mac from mid january to late february nineteen seventy four so when the fake fleetwood mac walked into their first show. Venue outside of pittsburgh actually in a place called the syria mosque. The venue promoter refused to put them onstage. 'cause he was like those are not fleetwood mac no but they play anyway And only about a dozen people ask for refunds and so they kept going and then apparently it like the next big venue.

"Know you're gonna have fun watching the motor three race and it was even crazy at the beginning back. There was a really scary incident. John mcphee who was starting in the front row as well and obviously it was not a good day to start on the front row because antonelli stalled had to start from pit lane and then john mcphee when the lights went <music> out he's still had his pit road speed limiter on and so everybody else's full-throttle getting up the speed. He's puttering along trying to figure out what's wrong with the bike. He put his arm up so he tried everything he could to make sure people knew what was going on but he also wanted to try and fix the bike as well and everybody missed him except except for yuki kuni made heavy contact with mcphee cooney in a wild card race and it looked like it actually knocked kuni unconscious for a minute he was down off the bike mcphee was able to ride back around. He came to pit lane. They had to help him off the bike. He was limping. It was a really scary situation. Especially when cooney we went down and didn't get up right away and so it was great to hear that both were reported at the end of the race to of escaped serious injury but i do hope that they're both fine and can be back on the bike soon <hes> kuni riding in the rebel rookies cup on a full-time basis and of course mcphee <hes> in moto three <hes> and then the mark teammates they got into a bit of a scrap as well <hes> lonzo lopez sergio garcia racing right next to each other in a big pack because you know it's mojo three garcia did make a little bit of an aggressive move up the inside but it wasn't anything that anybody else wouldn't have done in that same situation. Lopez comes cutting across the corner just a little bit too much to make the slightest bit of contact get tangled angle with each other. They're both in the gravel trap out of the race. Lopez was definitely not happy with his teammate ran over and shoved him now. Remember a couple couple of weeks ago. We were talking about this with alex marquez right and lorenzo baldassare and how alex should have gone over and laid a hand on his competitor because you don't know if he's injured. You don't know if he needs help. In that case by the sorry was trapped below the bike and he got away with it. Marquez got away with it and i talked what about on the show and thought that maybe he should at least gotten the warning and i thought it would take a little flack for that because honestly wasn't a big deal but you have to establish that so things don't escalate school eight perfect example exactly what happened in the moto three race. You've got the teammates one takes the other out. Alonzo lopez runs over the sergio garcia and pushes them right into the barrier and that wasn't a big push. Obviously wasn't anything that was going to hurt but fortunately in this case restrictions said no no that that is a step too far. We're going to do something about this cell. Alonzo lopez is going to start austria from pit lane or whatever his next race is. He's going to start it from pit lane. I'm sure it's going to be austria. He's not hurt <hes>. Is that a little harsh yeah. I think maybe a three or five grit spot penalty would have been a little bit more appropriate in the scenario but one way or the other. I'll take a penalty in that situation as opposed to none.

"He's also. Brandin Basseterre for Mercedes Benz in an executive fellow of the high school of business at UC Berkeley. He was previously the chief evangelist that apple he's got fourteen books out. His new book is called wiseguys lessons from a life guy. Welcome back to the show. Thank you. Thank you. I'm grateful for this opportunity to be back. So tell us about the, title wise guy. Well, trying to can can communicate a sense of I have some lessons and some ideas to give the people and I'm sixty four years old. It's my fifteenth book. So you'd think I to accumulate some wisdom by now. So people are familiar with the chicken soup for the soul series where individual contributors send in stories. This book is of a similar ilk. Except all the stories are mind. So I tell people think of it as measles soup for the soul. So is this kind of like the crowning book of your career? Now, we're done with guys Kawasaki books. Well, I've said they're fourteen. Though. Maybe I literally seriously I every from from nineteen ninety seven when I wrote my first book I thought. Oh, okay. So he's better. You have to say got one book and us, right? Yeah. And I've had one book in me fourteen times our fifteenth time, so perhaps I actually I have an idea to write another book. It's going to have a very narrow focus. It's more along this teams of John McPhee, kind of Brooklyn dives really deep into the Birch canoe maker. So I'm thinking of doing a book like that about surfboard making. Let's talk about your life's lessons wanted things you do discuss about paying it forward. I found it very interesting discussion about business influencers, especially with what happened with the fire festival through years back. You talk about how your uncompensated support from brands really lead to building a relationship with these companies tell us about it. Because a lot of folks. Don't start from that standpoint. Yeah. So this is a theory of paying it forward of defaulting to. Yes to always you in the glasses half full, and that has been not in every instance, but in many instances, however, you'd the world and it's paid back enormously. And when I meet people who are immediately, quid pro quo. You know, if you do this, I'll do this. If if I do this you have to do this. It's not exactly the best way to start a relationship. It's it's sort of like, you know, you meet someone you think you want to date, and after you say, hi, my name is guy. Kawasaki would you signed his pre-nup? Exactly, exactly. Foster a meaningful relationship. So I I would encourage people to, you know, default the s always trying to be helpful and let it sort itself out because the upside of defaulting to yes and paying it for far exceeds the downside of being used. I've always been amazed for me the kindness of strangers. So for example, you've always been very kind to me. And sometimes I people are kind to me for no reason. And I love it. Right. And I guess suspicious, but I realized well, I'm kind from you for no reason as well. And I think it's just a great way to be. Well, it takes a lot less energy. Right. Right. And I also think that I don't wanna get to do. But I think there's a karmic scoreboard in the sky and. You're racking up points. Are you losing point? So why not rack up points? Yeah. That's been the trajectory of my life. I and this is not something I can scientific proof. But boy, my experiences whenever you help people. It comes back tenfold. I agree because you know, you always meet the same people on the way up as I say, you always meet the same people in the way down and I've continuously there's a lot of people who've been gone on in their careers. I met them very early on. And they'd been much more successful than I have. And they always come back. He said, you know, Barry, I really appreciate the help. You gave me when I was just starting out. And to me that means a lot. I have the world's best star of that. Can I tell you there, of course? So I hired for a summer internship.

"So that's that's how I would think about that. Yeah. You mentioned Vitkin Sinai. I'm no expert on bit consent had a quarter in college, which the main focus of the work. I was learning in was in big consign, and I remember the professor saying to me. Well, what's Marvel's about bacon? Stein is said something along the lines of he lays out, very clinically. What we can meaningfully talk about. And and then the professor, and of course, then there's the punchline which is that most of what's really important. We can't talk about so. Because the words can't go to the mystical. So very very interesting. And I've often thought about this when I wrestle with concepts as I'm wrestling in research. What are the first questions they asked people often ask me, how do you? How do you develop a concept or how do you decide to come at something that would allow you to say, you know, articulate something you're seeing through the lens of say the level five hierarchy or the preserve the course to be late progress duality or whatever I question. I always ask myself is what's the conceptual vessel, right? Because to get a concept. There's different kinds of concepts. Right. You've got dialectics. You've got hierarchies. You had stages. You have equations you have categories and one of the first important things to do is to say. Well, if you're looking at something, what's what's the best kind of conceptual vessel? And then from there you develop the concept and just one thing on on language. It's not really about language per se. It's about the really hard world of writing. And as I was looking about you back around. Tim, I noted if I read it right that you had trust paths with one of our great nonfiction writers. John McPhee is that right? That is correct. Very very lucky and got to take a classical the literature of fact, which was seminar that McPhee used to teach. I don't know if he's still teaches it, but that did have a chance to spend some time with the incredible MSCI. Yeah. And just before we want to our broad conversation. I what what was it like to have a class from McPhee?.

"Really does. All right. So couple. I'm gonna ask you some. Steph tasty. But I have a couple of processed questions are you with this yarn metaphor? So did you do a lot of working with physical objects like when we talked about that John McPhee book, I think you came in that week. Right. Didn't we talk about the John McPhee book with you how to write non fiction, and I was saying that it could never help any person in the world who was not as brilliant in weird. As John McCain said, I asked Marc singer, his great friend. Do you write like this Mark? And he said fuck, no. Jar jar. I mean, we wouldn't even get into the insanity of his process, but like as far as the materiality of yours, did you print stuff out a lot. Did you did you lay things out on the floor, and like cross out paragraphs with a pen and move things around and do some kind of process now that it is over and I can hold the thing in my hands. I wanna go back and do because I have a stack in my office as tall as taller than my children probably of printed out and painstakingly marked up revised pages because that's how I do it. Because that's how I've always done. It is I write largely by hand. I get something into my computer. And then I printed out, and it could be like five sentences, and then I just do like margin alia and crossing out and just this this like revision kind of blooms, and that's where the writing happens to me like a lot of the creativity. And then I type all that back in and then I printed out again. And then I revised you're printing a lot like every day or so. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So I have this huge stack of paper that I want. To kind of sift through because you can trace the evolution of an idea into, you know, the the passage passages we read earlier, I can probably find the first seeds of those and find where I came up with particular images in ideas, like in the margins of what I had printed out. Do you think you'll keep that huge deca paper? I don't know is going to try to document. I'd love to talk to I would love to talk to younger writers about revision and writing and all that stuff because that's to me where the magic happens. I love to revise a hate to write and I love to revise especially having written about margin yet as you have. I would love to hear you like, right or or or comment further on that process. Okay. Steve I'm switching over to you. So of an ask you the I would be interested to hear this from both of you. But I'll ask it if you'd who do you show stuff as you're you're writing it? I mean, not you seem you strike me as a person who's very private about what you're writing. And you probably don't show it to your wife or your editor anybody else until it's ready. Is that true? Nobody I mean. So here's my agonized metaphor for writing my book getting to the end of the first draft which. Is imagine you're, you know, you're painting the hull of the battleship, and it's your job to paint the whole thing. And you're just right up close to the vast Puhl can object, and you'd take your just stroke, stroke, stroke, everyday, applying, the paint, and but you know, you're going to be done, and you're finally done in you, and you stand back and look at your handiwork, and it's it's just perfect. He did it you covered the hull and paint. And then someone says was the wrong color, and you know, part of the problem with me was that is I've been writing forever. And the bulk of the writing happened during the Obama years, and I was writing a decline est narrative in which I said, you know, everything about this country has rotted away to crap and and I- pinpoint what I believe to be a real turning point not a fake one NADA adventitious one for the purpose of making a cutesy argument. But a real turning point with substance substantive reason for it being the turning point. And then. Build an argument around that. But no one was feeling the decline in the Obama years..

This came from Boone son later told Dana Boone son was later interviewed, and he was telling the story about his father and mother in the story was that the Shad running in Pennsylvania when Boone's family is still in Pennsylvania and trying to trying to remember how this goes. So I get it right. And. They caught. Baskets full. They netted up baskets full of American shed. They had so many that one of the kids was dispatched.

"That they perhaps ought to be retreating is now coming to an end and the picture that's emerging is that the us equities business the cash is perhaps one where they will be retracing i was just talking to anthony and sparta's elisa's sparta's like in the alps of new jersey it's sorta outside new york city farther moved from sparta by the way to the flatlands of new jersey he's now in the pine barrens something like that guy read by john mcphee how many bodies are there in in for deutsche bank in new york i mean how many people do they act when we say cash equity and all that how many bodies are involved well what we know from some of the analysis but some analysts have done is that they include employee about ten thousand if i'm not mistaken yes but then of course not all those will be the business and not all of those will be in the cash equities business what does say jargon excuse me time for jargon lert with liza martinuzzi what's cash equities what does that mean that is the trading of a shares as opposed to the dating and derivatives that might be based on equities stock like ibm whatever trading do that from london then i mean what i don't understand is that they're going to get out of the equity business how can you do that we have seen players you know other banks that have retreated from the trading of stocks and certain reasons and that is not on hurdles i mean but the question that will remain as what how much of the other business you're able to maintain canoga long ago decline and say i can also equity trading a call precisely what is the track record of other banks that have said we're getting out of his business because it's a it's a money loser what's the track record what we do don't have is track hawk code of someone with such a presence pulling back so we move seen it it's more than plaza but we don't have the time to hold with you know a leading global thumb pulling out of the bigger markets what are you seeing earnings coming out.

"That's just the spirit of the fight and i think you have to test the spirit of the fight when i graduated from ranger school then i got the call a couple of days later could you fight in the nfl which was a new promotion that was on fox i knew i was gonna already be heading to to combat and the reason i had to go to ranger school was i just got back from iraq and my boss john mcphee the sheriff of baghdad he told me i was a piece of shit and he said that i had no business being in a unit like the one that we were in because we are in a very special unit within special forces and that i i didn't have the leadership and i didn't have the experience and i didn't have the military bearing to to be in that unit that i could maybe get a chance if i went to if i went to just going on graduated on a grad i knew i was going to be heading back to combat so i not only needed to prove to him that i was a good leader but also tough enough and i deserve to be there why just if i can pose for saying why why did you see that what we're i mean with with the degree which you're comfortable disclosing what what happened that would lead him to say there's a lot of little things we're on a a night where we're trying to kill one of the most evil dudes in all of the war or for sixteen years as our cowy remember the deca cards i do yeah cusani's he's a bad dude he strung up americans from bridges and set them on fire you know he'd drug do down the road strap behind a car that had stolen from the americans his notorious for posing with pitchers with americans dead americans in front of him holding their guns like he was a african trophy hunter.

"So let's just talk about the processing part of it minder standing is that you know orange juice is not orange juice they take a bit of the peel and other parts of the orange and they have flavor components and so they freeze the orange juice and the reconstituted adding back flavors that correct now the people in the industry will be very serious to tell you that they don't put anything in the orange juice that's not in the orange right right they're they're very specific of all the things that they're adding back in we're already part of the fruit but yes the thing that we drink out of the carton has been calibrated to suit our tastes right we know this simply by just a few take regular orange and cut it in half and squeeze it over your glass it tastes very little like the thing that you get out of the car right and you know this comes down to simple i hate to say it but the industrialization of our tastes we like a certain amount of acid a certain amount of sugar into chief that they've developed some frankly incredible and very powerful technology but is also raced some of the uniqueness of drinking the juice from a specific orange so the obvious question is in the world of twitter and social media what you do and john mcphee does is the tip asus of that which is you you dive is deeply and slowly as possible for as long as possible to get at something that's hard to get at you can only get at by by deep mining and yet the rest of the world just wants to skip over the surface is there is the time for that gonna come back to you desperately feel that we're missing out on life and culture because we're not diving deep.
