"To hear your experience as a as a political director and somebody who's a studio observer of American politics, can you please translate? What the president was saying in that in that passage that wasn't great writing. That wasn't great writing. Is it the president's voice that Dan, it almost sounds like someone else is saying these words of mixed metaphors aside. I heard him talking about rekindling the bonds of love before this is not the guy that that railed against Lyon, Ted and crooked. Hillary and continues to talk about cryan Chuck. This is not the man who was inhabited the Oval Office for the last two years. I think this speech was a vision of President Trump's presidency as he would like it to be as he wishes. It was where there is a boundless optimism and enthusiasm and success in this country at any given moment. And and really no nod to the fact that we are at a very divisive moment in politics, a very personal moment of political attacks where this president has played no small part in fostering that along among those who thought the speech wasn't good with Steve Bannon. We'll get you. You kind of stepped on me because I was going to read what Bannon Selvi, and I was gonna ask you who said that, you know. But but look at what Bannon said the unity, this unity speech is ridiculous after you lose election box yourself in on this negotiation is not when you pitch unity, and then ban and goes on to speculate that Trump might not Ron again, he says China the wall Syria of ghanistan the three legs of why the president are coming. Why is president are coming together? If he blinks on China, and he blinks on the wall. I don't think he runs in twenty twenty. I think he throws in the towel. This sounds to me like a president throwing in the towel. This seems like a president to me who would like. Loves the passion tree of these moments. Remember Nancy Pelosi threatened to cancel the state of the union or to to to force it to get rescheduled. He had the opportunity to do this somewhere else. Not in the house chamber. Maybe the Senate chamber maybe at a rally around the country. He didn't want that. Right. He wanted to do this in the place that presidents do this. And he got that moment, and he enjoys I think the the pageantry of it and hearing Mr Speaker, the president and shaking hands and seeing those wrap lawmakers knowing you reaching tens of millions of Americans. He likes all of that. And in that context to something commanded that Chaim. Yes, there were really times where he, you know. I mean, look, it was was not I think one observer I heard I think using your name said that this was Trump coming out against Trumpism is that what the roughly I may have written something like that. I can't remember it was a long time ago. But he he has he seemed to be to be reacting to a lot of the political impulses that he follows on an hourly basis and does he we're beyond. And John retires in. We've done this podcast throughout this presidency. We probably have fallen into the trap of four of saying is this a pivot is this a new leaf. We don't say that we like. Like that. It's just not going to happen. We know who he is. And the one makers in the room know who he is. And the American public knows who he is. So no one's actually changing their perceptions. But this is a president who's gearing up for reelection race. Think about that context of it. This is maybe the last time he's gonna command big political stage all by himself until his own convention or until next year state of the union. In the meantime, the Democrats are going to be commanding the next year in politics, the president's going to be sidelined for Trump, not entirely but sideline for Trump. So this was his last best shot to kind of set the terms of that debate that is going to rage inside the Democratic Party for the next week next year, and it's a different guy than we've seen for the last two..

"Not just follow the crowd on brands like that. And understand why they've been successful in whether the storm a bit because it's true. Like the attention went some of those brands for a while. But we have a real business that we can that we operate. And we think about it in terms of the growth of the business that we operate, right? We're not selling very well. I mean, it's different when you're operating a business that's profitable. And by by its nature. VC funded companies are not profitable. Otherwise. Why would they be taking these see money order go public? But if you're gonna do that you have to have a real business you underneath it. Yeah. I guess what? I'm. I'm wondering is is whether we're seeing now the painful pivot to having real businesses. Quote, unquote, real businesses meaning like actually reliably producing prophets. I'd say it's going to be company to company based in how much funding they have. I mean, if you again, if you think Jim Bank is a pro right? Jim along time. He's great at what he does. He's running real business. Right. I mean, it's it's you can't categorize these things generally that way. But but everything is going to have to either sink or swim on zone or become part of something bigger in that is an advantage that we have. So you know, my normal. Shoutout to our overall groups interactive is, you know, we're in given month to six or seven th largest overall internet company in the US. But the way we get there is super unique it's twenty five plus brands and all these different categories. And so their strength in numbers that way, including the fact that we can ham egg it sometimes to get a brand through a period where it needs investment Harmon Eggett. Yeah. Like, you know, we're we're we're you know brands are doing really well can kind of provide some air cover for ones that need to go through transition. And when you have them for this period of time, you can you can do that in just in my seven plus years. We I've seen multiple. Times when a brand was a little bit of a turnaround for a period of time or need to go through something came out the other end and now it's preventing air cover for something else. Let's what's an example of that. Well, I'll keep that one internal around. But. Part part of the portfolio that are you going to be acquisitive? We've been conservative on that front to. Again, not for a lack of thinking deeply about it. We have in all cases, you know. I think price points have been high generally. And then there's been times where we just don't need it. Right. So we already have the number one tech publication and will air things against it. We, you know, we didn't need to go buy something like bam tech because we've been operating our own video stack for ten plus years, even all the way back to, you know, our friend Brian doll sold. Call the college sports network CBS part of that was college sports live. We are already streaming twenty thousand lives sporting events year, and that you know, that stack that led to the video stack across all access streaming. The Grammy's, you know, all the different video our entire video platform. So we've been eyeballing everything we so we are acquisitions have been smaller read. So it's twenty four seven sports and scout median sporting space to get deeper into college and recruit. Being TV guide back in twenty thirteen. That's how Tanner got here's the GM of of sports. I mean of of news. So we continue to look. And if the price is right. We will go coming down at two thousand nineteen never know. All right waiting. Final thing is one sort of resolution masking people as we're heading into end of the year. This is not a personal resolution, but it's sort of for the overall industry give me a resolution for two thousand nineteen. Well, look, I think the industry overall does need to expand its thinking on the eighty five cents of every new dollar going to Google and Facebook, I came from the surge industry. I know how great, sir. John retiring in is great. Nobody was complaining about ask. Is you know, taking all the money, though, we took a lot of money. It was a good business.

"Nick shocks this loss. Disappointed. You it shocked me. There's the shocking thing. This show me the Cowboys were left for dead. Jerry Jones is driving himself. Crazy skips thrown his jersey white. We're talking about today trade away at top five pick. The eagles are coming off a bye with knowing Washington is limping because of all their injuries. Everything's in front of you. Get a game win your division behind going into the playoffs and how many turning points in this game. How many times the eagles? Let the Cowboys off the hook the whole first quarter when they went three and out followed by one play drive interception. Followed by five and out. What about when they had the ball on the Cowboys twenty two second to run it three times and get negative yards and get into turnover on downs. Whatever the fact that the end of the first half they're going to get the ball back chance to score third and fifteen Cowboys given up and you let some not nothing SCR. Leaned pass gopher I down then instead of you scoring the Cowboys get seven this is a need to Cowboys are taking and you let them take it for thirty yards up the field or after all that. Despite all of that, you're thirteen thirteen in the second half, and this vaunted defense, let's that offense. Go nine for seventy five and a touch and then eight for seventy five in touch what this was an embarrassing performance at home auto by by the defending Super Bowl champs in their biggest game of the year. And there's no excuse for not in my book. No, I'm not making stooges I'm just going to tell you exactly what's happened to this football team from an offensive standpoint have no physicality in the running game offense of line Jason Peters. God blesses. So he was not there to win a championship. He's not the same player laying Johnson. He's not even their their best offense of lineman him being out of the lineup has really hurt them. So them haven't any continuity up front. It's not their inability to be physical the. The reason why lashing playoffs predicted they would make it because they're big people were big better. No. And we thought their defensive line. So let me go on the other side. We've thought they would be better. They go out and get a couple of Hello de NADA. They get Michael Bennett. Like we said man those were to come at you eight or nine potentially not better defensively. Fletcher Cox, we used to consider human Aaron Donald the best to interior defense on he's not having that type of year and last year thing that they got away with their secondary played out of their mind. Turn people over coverage getting off the field on third down last night. The Cowboys fifty percent on third down when you can't get the Cowboys off the field on third down collective your big people are not better than they were last year. That's the problem. We can go around all these other things about the eagle those problems from football standpoint of why they have the predicament that they have looking at missing the playoffs. So as last year fluke. Man is looking more and more like it. I know football people get mad. There's no flukes ever super great. I get it. But here's what I know in the last thirty years in the NFL only to defending champs have been below five hundred the following year one of them. John Elway retired. So I'm gonna give you a pass John. Do you want to Super Bowls in John retired when six and ten the other was Gruden seven and nine bucks after winning the SuperBowl? Every other Super Bowl champ has been eight wins or better twenty of the thirty have made the playoffs the following year. Like, I don't there's no there is no excuse for what they're doing. And you mentioned the only borderline excuses. They did mislaying Johnson last night. And see you think on the biggest play of the game the play late and Vander h third into the eagles. Despite all this down just seven with the ball looking like, they're driving. They throw a little screen pass on third and two and late in vain is blocked by two guys but blocked by non using lane. Could've made this. Absolutely. Because lane. What does he do? Well, he's very very athletic very fast just to be tight end in college before they kicked him down to be an attack..

"So what does it in Conrad that pushes him back up those mountains, despite the constant threat of death? Just ego Tanzer that let's consider John Herschel again for just a moment. There's a little more to his story than we thought. After we first met him the full story behind why John retired from football gets something else that Conrad has been talking about all along a deeper more pure truth about death, take that famous CT study, the one that seemed to compel John quit football for good. Of course that knowledge went into my decision. If it didn't I think I'd be very silly person. But it by no means was the thing that made a decision for me starting his NFL career. John also went ahead and started working on his applied mathematics PHD at MIT in his free time giving up football wasn't. But keeping up his life. Passion. It was about pursuing his life passion. I thought about what was most important to me at that time. And Wade sort of what matter to me most of my life, and what I wanted to see the rest of my life, look like and at that point. It was sort of very obvious. That math was very much king over football. I would say that football though, sort of great passion of mine and something I love doing something that had a huge influence on my life. I don't think I would ever consider this. My life's passion. And I would say that. I guess I should consider myself lucky that the only sort of Rhys that I get from my life's passion as maybe getting some chalk on my shirt..

"Center released a bombshell study. Researchers analyzed the brains of one hundred eleven deceased former NFL players they found evidence of the degenerative, brain disease, C T E in one hundred and ten of them. You've probably heard a lot about CT over the past several years C T stands for chronic traumatic and Steph allopathy, and it develops people as the result of repeated head trauma the symptoms start with changes in mood and behavior problems with impulse control aggression, depression, and the like as the disease progresses, memory loss confusion and dementia. Take hold people would see t have died in their fifties with brains that look like they belong to somebody two decades older. John Marshall was twenty six years old. And the study was released two days later, he announces retirement from football. A media circus. If we followed John was done for good, he dove into his PHD studies at MIT full-time and has no plans of looking back. There's a decent chance that this upcoming years the last year of my PHD. So after that, I'll be applying for professorships I'll be applying for post doc positions and the next five to ten years. I look forward to sort of being settled at a university that I love getting to do good research as a professor being able to teach smart and interested students buying a house raising my daughter and just living a good life when John retired from football.

So unique experience putting yourself in places that you weren't meant to be in overcoming that initial hesitation and fear. Here is what climbing about it's the essence of it.

No matter how often his life gets put at risk, then who is the athlete realizes. It's danger and walks away. That's her ch- took an unexpected turn. Instead of another clamor. We found ourselves talking to John Herschel Twenty-seven-year-old PHD student at MIT studying applied mathematics. In like, most of his fellow academics. John is also a former offensive lineman in the NFL and the prime of his career John retired from football two days after famous research study was released that showed how prominent a deadly brain disease wasn't former NFL players. John. We thought we found the counterpoint to Conrad Anker presented with a possible threat to his life. John Marshall called it quits and became an academic. But we discovered that the reasons behind the decision weren't exactly what we expected. John show seemed made for football as a boy he was so big the local pop Warner leagues. Didn't let him play. But then came high school freshman year. I thought it'd be fun to try. I mean, I knew my father college football is a big part of his life. And at that time. I don't know. My father was a really big idol of mine. And so I really just wanted to be just like him. John learned the game easily and quickly became a standout offensive lineman all through high school, I didn't really have this sort of idea that I would even play college football in mind until I'd say my junior year where I came to realize that I'm not bad at football. I'm a decent player by senior year. He got the attention of big football schools, and he accepted a scholarship offer from Penn State. It was sort of a quiet hidden dream of mine to be offense lineman in the big ten. This was a big dream of mine. And while he was at Penn State. He realized he was also great at something else. I was that college. I was taking sort of undergraduate mathematics courses, and I came to realize that I had, you know, had an aptitude for everyone on the football team knew I was good at math. I was the unofficial math tutor on the team his third year there. John wrote a fifty six page paper detailing theorem, he developed with a friend, and what we looked at was something called the spectral bisection problem, which is a well known in weld studied, relax -ation of it problem in machine learning, which is known to be N P heart, and what does N P hard means. It means very very hard to solve John even graduated from Penn State in just three years and with a four point. Oh GPA at that. Then the ravens drafted him in two thousand fourteen and he did well there within the first two seasons. He established himself as a promising member of the ravens offensive line, then in two thousand fifteen John suffered a concussion there was nothing particularly unusual dramatic about it. Just a hard hit during practice. John all of it. I can't sort of say what I'll concussions can tell you sort of what I've experienced sometimes light bothers you a little bit. If you try to exercise a little too hard. Sometimes you get a little busy your little bit of headache with light sensitivity things like looking at a laptop can sometimes caused some issues, and sometimes you can have some mood issues as well. That weren't there before when someone suffers a concussion that means their brain has slammed into their skull the effect on the brain is like a bomb going off neurons at ground zero explode microscopic particles fly through the brain like shrapnel as a result people often suffer headaches and problems with memory, muscle coordination, and concentration. And after you have one concussion. It's more likely that you'll have another one up to three times more likely, according to some doctors John was okay after that. And he was living the dream at the pro level won the money is not bad too. I mean, it's not a bad schedule sort of to have a gig three football's pretty fun, man. I'm gonna love with you.

His last position there was senior vice president chief brand officer. John, welcome to the podcast to be here have been a fan of the podcast required a while lease to have a fan. Hey, John, you started IBM in nineteen Eighty-four and you stayed there for your whole career? Basically? Yes. Working for one company is kind of unusual. Derrick jeeter stay. The Yankees were whole career when you started to think you were there for good? No, I grew up in California and what they look and Allie and there you know are a couple of technology companies out there. I thought that while IBM was Kyon off to invite me to join the company out there in the laboratory and in San Jose, I thought I'm not leaving California's. So therefore I, I probably hit a ceiling at some point at IBM and then we'll have to leave IBM. It doesn't turn out that way. They got you become east, then they did. They did. They offered me a two year temporary assignments. So I can develop myself at corporate headquarters in New York and two years turned into the rest of my career. I never left corporate headquarters when you first came to IBM in San Jose. What with the job they hired you to do. Well, I had I had three internships and I learned different things, different aspects of communications one I joined as a regular employee in nineteen eighty four. I joined the research laboratory. Most companies have already. IBM has our Andy and the are is a separate set of laboratories that ring the earth, and it's more like a university or government laboratory, it science.

"It's just a matter of maybe it's time for a bit of a mini rebuild because we talked about it on Friday still do have pieces with that current core that they can't keep around up Crawford Bumgarner aby Bates definitely rebuilding time. Yeah, maybe not with the manager, but maybe with the manager. That's tough. That's tough decision to make, but I guess that's up to the new GM. Whoever will be true. And I mean, you look at it Boccioni three will series there, and I feel like maybe he's kinda solidify solidified a spot which kind of like right. John retire as shoe army is getting up there in age. We do to kind of think about that. And I think maybe many managers are so old trotting Cox, the perfect example agent at the time. He retired new, the guy bocce. I mean, maybe it's just one where it's kind of some self awareness here. We'll bring in new GM that guy's been there for twenty five years and they got rid of him. Maybe it's time for me to go and let someone else all new front office type of feel. Yeah, I think honestly, that might be the case. And I'd say if bocce does leave, it was a solid era for the giants. Oh, it's Bruce Butch era for sure. Yeah. Every World Series in five years is not a joke. Plus, I mean, being if you're a giants fan, you can't kind of look towards the dodgers. There's some backlash from fans day if he's gone. But other than that, I think that that might be the best option. Yeah, I don't think it would be the wrong move. If the giants politely ask them, hey, can you maybe package stuff up politely ask someone be fired. Yeah on. That's that's not see. Maybe the little PR releases. They've mutually agreed to part ways or he just they ask him to retire. Yeah, so it's it's not like, oh, we forced him to retire, but then the about that conversation and I think this whole can of worms. But if they do lose Boji, they're going to get someone like I said with GM quality, they're going to get someone manager quality, say, maybe you kinda go the Boston Red Sox to kind of like the New York Yankees route kind of bringing some young blood. They were like Alex core, Aaron Boone, obviously not those two guys, but kinda someone who has been a coach as carried that team in any way, shape or form. He just got lucky with talent. Yeah, that's true. I'd say with Alex Cora, he's done well to manage eagles and top players with bocce. He took a lot of misfits and made the moral teary champions. Yeah, team Edgar Renteria was them the World Series on relay was on that team. Andre Torres was on that team. There's no like Tim linseed was that and BUSTER Posey with those two guys. But everyone else contributed in one way or another. That was a hub was a team effort. If anything. You mentioned timberlands interesting about the fact p. fell off real hard. Yeah, he wasn't a gradual decline. I'd say no hitters and but Lee, the giants he was done angels, very, not good. I'm Donna known of..

"Then we go to New York play the giants in week fourteen and we get beat on a hail Mary fittingly by Amani Toomer right my my Michigan teammate from from the year before so. But it was. It was unbelievable start. And then John retires after the Super Bowl win over Atlanta in Miami, and and then then it all becomes real, you know, if fast forwards and okay, he's done in a legacy is cemented back to back super bowl's on your way out and off to the sunset, and and then reality hits. Okay. Who's next? And that's when it started for me to be to be real and you and your father. I don't know if you realize this or the only father, son, quarterback combination in NFL history. Both went Super Bowl where you were that. Yeah. Somebody had mentioned that that before I don't. I don't put much stock in at one of us. One of us took a snap in the Super Bowl, one didn't. You can figure out. Yeah, but you still got to win one. Right? Although I would loved the opportunity in in the Super Bowl with the bears in two thousand six against Peyton felt. Like if I would have had an opportunity there might might have turned out different. How do you seek the game is different from the time you played it to now Brian. Oh, you know, everything's different. You know, the way the way practices happen are different. We train camp happens different. The protection in the safety of the players certainly is different and even more so this year as we've seen, there's just more of an emphasis on that. I do think that the the level of play, especially with offense, lineman has changed not to get too far down in the weeds, but you know, the college game has changed so much more uptempo spread the field horizontally that that offensive lineman in college or not asked to do what they typically would need to be able to do at the NFL level. So I think the level of play on the offensive line has changed. I think that's what I see most at the NFL different than when I was playing when you had guys that came off the line of scrimmage, and you know the Tony Jones and the March flair and guys that I played with that, that. Could just come off the ball and run the ball, and that's why it's real Davis has two thousand yards. I think that's to me probably the biggest part of of the game that has changed outside of just safety in the mount of hitting in practice week one, you'll be doing the lions and the jets. And the second game that will have on ESPN that night is the raiders and the Rams in which will be debut in our new Monday night football team. And I'm gonna ask you about that in a moment. But first I want to say to you, what area of Sam darnold game will lead the biggest adjustment as he transitions to the NFL. Protecting the football. I mean that that's the number one thing in the NFL. You turn the football over. You don't play and the coach gets fired. You know, if if Sam darnold has the the same kind of a carefree attitude that he had it at SC, that's that's a recipe for disaster. So I and I think I think he will be better. I think it'll be more cognizant of that, but you don't want to coach the playmaker out of the player either. 'cause one of his biggest assets is extending plays and the confidence to make throws on the run and tight windows. So that's gonna be an adjustment. Certainly he's talented kid with the right head on his shoulders. I thought of all four of the of the quarterbacks drafted in the first round that he had the the, the best mental makeup to play early on..

"Right, get rid of him right now took that many years that that's also very interesting because takeaway TD is making a movie about Hitler right now. Yeah, he's making comedy thing about Hitler right now. I will. I will say this. This has changed at least when he was first hired, Jimmy Johns. Retired marvel and Disney were very separate as the years ago by. Disney has been involved as been injecting marvel into more of the Disney property. There is now a ride at Disneyland. They're like, it's it's deaf. They're seeing it as a family franchise, and it's no longer was like Disney owns what Miramax are owned Miramax at one point. So like basically dizzy made kill Bill. You're not just to kill Bill at Disneyland. It's not going to happen. They're too smart to do anything stupid like that. But now they just being the clean cut company. They are. They don't want any negativity associated with these brands. So it seems to be as Marvel's being more inject into the Disney franchise. They're being a lot less tolerant. So let's see what's valid that that to me is what makes the most sense it's going to make for bad content, but that seems valid and that's why well, and that's the thing is that that's interesting, and obviously we're biased because we make a lot of edgy than do jokes that had to content. We like to think we do. Well, we're not the interesting on the world. Not that I've noticed, but either way I, I see that a lot from YouTube were on YouTube. They're like, we're going to start giving more fairly friendly, and eventually it's just turn into and boxing, the website. And and and to me, I'm like, I thought the best. That's eventually they'll realize they lost this whole other section of audience that likes to watch adult swim that likes to watch HBO because they don't have the edge anymore. I maybe that's what they want. We started. I mean, I think you have to give people room to be committed to figure out like everyone starts as a big block of marble and slowly chip off the pieces that you don't think you need. But along the way, there's some large chunks like I'm going to try this boom like, and then ultimately, as you grow and you improve and you figure out the directions you wanna go like you refine it into thing just as just a small example. It's not exactly relevant, but like there's no cursing in any of the sex wing cartoon. There's there's no cursing. And that was a conscious decision that we made because we were like, well, if we have the time to choose our words, let's see if we can choose something else in place and if you like whether or not you think it sucked or not doesn't really matter. I'm just using it to make a point. Tommy Tommy Steele's character. We found a different way for him to curse as much as someone with the foul mouth. Would curse without ever. Actually cursing just choice to try to make. These are the experiments that you do one way or the other to try and figure out your voice and your craft and your tone and how you're going to express yourself. And if you're talking comedy, Jesus Christ, go to an open mic please. And if you have a time machine Goto an open mic in the late seventies and early eighties, and I someone someone immediately pointed it out and they were like George motherfucking Carlin played Mr. conductor and shining time station. The Thomas, the tank engine show in the in the eighties and nineties, or whatever. George Carlin though banned from television or whatever for being just horrific in his standup act and it's still like it's not like, oh, at the time he showed a little Neath. No, it's still pretty fucking aggressive. I don't know. I, it's just, it bothers me. I, the Dan Harmon thing. I thought it was interesting because the dull swims response was. Yep. This is pretty bad. Yeah, but he hasn't made that for us. Yeah, he was hanging by them. Him. I guess Rick and Morty is a far cry from gardens, galaxy. I guess it Disney thing, but it's true, but for how long will different at different advertisers..
