"We are seconds away from a payrolls report in the United States for America going into that payrolls report, equity futures slightly negative on the S&P 500. Yields on a ten year look like this, down a basis point or two at two 96 68, your job's number might make better upside surprise. Yeah, this is going to feed the inflation side They won't do a hundred basis points time because I thought they'd do 50 last time then two days before the meeting they went 75. So my prediction is worth nothing. I will talk about this move at the front end though up 11 basis points. Clearly pushing back against this idea, this fed can slow down on rate hikes any time soon. For many people time, it will be the labor market that's got to scream at them stop. And it's not doing that right now. Inflation is going to keep nudging them to go again and go again. I have just one question for the economists out there this morning Tom in this data. This is another month of really robust payrolls data Tom on a headline. Yet unemployment is still there at 3.6%. And I wouldn't say wages are flying here. Just my perspective on looking at the incoming data, Tom, just an observation, not a judgment where any of this is going, just an observation at the moment. There's enough moving parts for everybody can find a statistic that you like. Let's go to Mike McKee for a look before governor krasner. Hey, or Mike mckey, you're looking at the data, what beneath it of matters to you? Well, we talked just before the numbers came out about where you might see some issues and we were wondering what would happen to minority unemployment. It is kind of mixed. Black African American unemployment fell to 5.8 from 6.2. So no sign of people getting laid off first hired first fired in that category, Hispanics did not change 4.3. Rise in Asian unemployment of 6 tenths, which is kind of unusual and I would guess that might be statistical noise in there somewhere, but that's it. 3% still a very, very low number there. And then taking a look at the numbers that go into the unemployment rate, the labor force fell by 353,000, even though the participation rate was 62.2 employment was down by 315 and unemployment was down by 38. So the household survey diverging significantly from the establishment survey in terms of number of jobs. But the unemployment rate because of the change in participation not moving. Quickly, Michael here, John from Coventry, emails in and says, what does this mean for the secretary of labor, mister Walsh? Victory lap for the Biden administration and he can say, look, we're still producing jobs in the unemployment rate hasn't changed. And we're seeing maybe a little bit of side inflation is falling back. Wages. Let's see if there are Mike mckew with us with a John Wright, a buoyant job report. I think that's where we go. Rock solid summer. I think if you were looking for weakness, I can't see it here. We moved to the governor, former governor of the Federal Reserve and at booth school, Randall Crosby, for brief comments. Here is well, Randy, we had gradualism in a measured moment with Greenspan. Is that history now with this ad economy? That's history. I've had as long, long behind us. You can see that the fed now is trying to move expeditiously exactly. She said this is completely consistent with the desire to move fast. And I think they are very likely to go 75 basis points at the next meeting. Obviously we'll get some inflation data between now and then they're also going to get a GDP report because they'll know the numbers before we know them. When they make their decision on Wednesday, we'll find out on Thursday and at the end of the month. But I think they're going to go 75. And I think there's nothing in this report that would slow them down from that. Randy, there's just a question I have. I don't want to make too much of a big deal of it. It's just something that keeps jumping out to me. We keep churning out really robust jobs growth. Payroll is 372,000. Unemployment is really stabilized at 3.6%. I'd love your thoughts on what you make of that. Well, I mean, this is exactly as Mike said, you've got two different surveys and different ways of gathering the data. So they're not always exactly the same. And we don't always know months a month. Why one is going one direction one's going in another direction. But I think both of them point to pretty robust robust job job market right now. But I do see that weakening by the fall. And what do you make of a lower participation rate, 62.2%, Randy? Well, it sort of been bouncing around 62.262 .3. I think it's small enough and it's only months a month movements to it's too difficult to make too much of that. But I think what it says is that there's a large number of people who I think are just not going to come back from the labor market. I think especially older workers that had come in really, really robustly before the pandemic struck. I've just said, this is just too risky. There's really no need for me to be in the job market and being exposed. I want to be spending time with my kids. I want to be spending time traveling with my loved ones. And I think we're just not going to see the labor force participation rate, move up to where it was pre-pandemic. Randy, great to have you with us. Run across now there of the University of Chicago both school responding to that upside surprise 372,000 on payrolls and yields on a two year up 9 basis points now to 3.1. We can call it 3.1. 1% on a two year yield, the light stays green for this fed to go again, perhaps 75 basis points, looking forward to catching up with the panel in about 20 minutes time. Rick rieder, Muhammad Ali. Sebastian, Mike Collins, and we'll talk to The White House secretary Walsh Tom coming up and about 50 minutes or so on Bloomberg TV and radio. Most interesting as well. And I just can say the smartest strategist I've heard in recent days is the strategist Jerome Powell works for a small firm down in Washington where he said it is a strong economy. Jeffrey Rosenberg now leads us forward. He's with BlackRock. He's co lead portfolio manager of the systematic multi strategy fund. Jeff, that's a mouthful. Let's cut to the chase. How do you devolve this out economy in the new volatility you're living in the bond market down to a systematic strategy? Well, Tom, it's an odd economy as you point out, but it's a payroll report as Jonathan nailed it right at the beginning that solidifies 75 basis points. Going into this the market is expecting a slowdown in payrolls. You heard Randy talk about that into the fall. That's still the case, but it's not slowing fast enough. And so the fed is going to have to do more. And when you see the lack of labor force participation, and I agree with Randy, we don't want to over interpret .1

"You know NASCAR is like this old boys. You'd think a NASCAR you think of white, southern beer, drinker, I hate to say this. But that's just what you think right types. Yeah. America, you know, and there's not there's very few African Americans. There's been very few women. It's just an old white boys. You know. Like I hate to say that it is what it is. You know NASCAR is they've got the diversity program. There were seeing that, you know, things change changing, it's changing. But there's this girl. Hailey Deegan, who I know are dad, she's seventeen years old. She's the she's one of the prodigies she's running in a lower division. She won this past weekend, and all the men were up in arms like this guy came and sideswiped or you know, seventeen year old you don't cute little girl, and he sideswiped her. So she came back on the last lap. She went and drove into his door nailed him push them off the track and won the race. And like. All, you know, and if the if these guys like you know in NASCAR do that, you know, everyone's like oh, that's acceptable. They're just racing hard. Here's a seventeen year old little girl who did that. And people are up in arms over it. That's she doesn't belong on the track this, and that I'm like, no. Like I respect that, like she knows like if this seventeen year old girls going to make it, she's got a drive harder than the men. She's got to prove herself. She's got earned the respect like she can't just be a pushover and like so, but it's like the these guys like if a man was to do the same thing. It was acceptable. But because this woman did it or seventeen year old girl, did it like all of a sudden, people have a problem with, and I'm like, no, like she's doing she's just she's a racecar driver, plain and simple. You know, it's weird and, you know, I, I don't think we know all of the ways that culture is a part of how we think. Do you think about it? Yeah. I lot of the ways that you think is it comes directly, not from yourself. You didn't come up with it in a in a vacuum. You know, people are this very individualistic idea where people are walking around going, oh, I'm just I'm who I am. No, you're not. You're, you're a part of this society. That makes you that helped shape you and make you who you are. So you know in the culture of something like NASCAR or any other subculture in America, you know, no matter what the demographics are that are involved. Yeah. They, they have the they have a particular DNA, if you will, and changing that DNA is hard, but you kind of can sense what fits with what doesn't that? Seventeen year old girl doing that it didn't fit with the DNA of the of the little club that's going on there. Right. And the cult of the subculture that's going on. But that's how you change it. You change at one seventeen year old girl ramen. An old guy. At a time. Exactly. Well, I think John, we're well over an hour at this point. I think really. Yeah. We're well over an hour. I think we get we could sit here and talk all day four. Yeah. No. And we hold on one second.

"Not that he's bad-looking or anything, but you can just tell like he was he was young young young. You know, but yeah, even that show like you get the people come off of it. You know, they they're literally plunked on an island for forty days. You know, you don't need to build drama. It's just gonna happen. But even what they trim out and then what they air. The people are like, yeah, they can still, you know, create whatever narrative they want, right? Absolutely. The power of the editor man, the powers, the I mean, in a documentary, shoot I'll, I'll shoot one hundred hours and then make a one hour or ninety minute thing out of it. And when you have that much material, you can literally right, the story, however, you want it to go. You know, I mean you which blows my mind like how do you sort through a hundred hours of stuff to make a night? Like I mean it's just it's painful, you know, and then you're like an earmark that for later, and then you've got to go back and find that you like to me it's just I'm working on a project right now. It's not my project, but I'm involved in it. It and it's pages and pages and pages and pages and pages of Google docs, that are just all of the different threads that need picked up here and there and everywhere of, of areas where the where the story could go, and what we need to, you know, and they're bringing me on basically to help them through the process of sorting through some of that stuff. I don't know how to do that. Expertly. But I know how to do it so you know they're, they're help. I'm helping. And so it's but it's, it's a lot. You know, it really is. Yeah. That's crazy. All right. We gotta take a short break in John, and I we we actually we having him on today. So we can actually talk about some of this tech stuff. We've got three going on apple just had their big.

"You listen to every every movie you watch almost anything no matter what it is. Even the simplest things reality shows whatever they are all of them take a ton of work to put together way more than you think and nothing's easy. Well, and I think a lot of people lose sight to, you know, like you said, I was two weeks ago. I was in outside of Phoenix place called tortilla flats. I didn't even know existed. Most beautiful place. Arizona's most beautiful place in Arizona. Our from Phoenix lakes and everything else. It's amazing. But. Yes, I was out there. And we were actually filming a commercial. I can't say for what company but it was, it was gonna be basically. What is like a, a two minute to three minute. Maybe tops, you know, YouTube commercial, the they'll trim parts of it for TV, but, you know, but we're out there and literally, we got there four in the afternoon. And it was we were shooting at night, we didn't leave until four AM in the morning is a twelve hour shoot an entire film crew. Roads were getting shut down and things like that. Like absolutely. You know, it's gonna turn out amazing. Yeah. But it's all for two minutes. Right. You know. And I don't think people, you know. And then you start. You know, I think you know, you start talking with people in everybody's like, oh, why don't you do this? Why don't you go to do a YouTube do this? And I'm my gosh. Like, I don't think people realize the money that's wrapped up granted, you can take your cell phone, and we can film something and throw it up. But it's not it's either it's either a ton of money like a metric ton of money or a metric ton of time this, there's only two routes to something that, that good. You know, it's either a lot of money or a lot of time and sometimes, both well talking about TV because you've been on both sides. Like I said, Tiffany stone, who does some radio with me on the national show. We were talking about. She does motorsports. TV just like me. And we've worked together a lot. You know, when I go to TV like this weekend in Cranston, and, you know, and this is going to be livestream. And then tape for TV, but I have an entire production truck full of people, you know, and something that looks quite simple. Yeah. We, we've got the tracks can have probably fifteen different guys, you know, running cameras and all of them have somebody helping them you've got an entire production truck full of people and I mean probably fifteen people ought to you guys out of the house life. Switching they're switching I've got one guy, talking in my ear giving me pointers and everybody you know. And I told him, I'm like you don't realize for me to actually talk on TV how many people are, are working their butts off to make me look good. When I said, it's very humbling, and I said people don't get that. And I said the talent on TV and I'm not just talking me. I'm talking anybody. That does TV. We're not the actual talent. It's the fifty people behind the scenes. You don't see that's right. That's right. You know. But people wonder why it costs so much. They're like, oh, you got a guy up there. Why is it cost so much TV? You know it's just one guy. And I'm like, no, there's fifty others that you don't see. That's why TV so expensive little things like in my in my film, in sort of, like the documentary film side of what I do even sourcing permission to put a location on screen or sourcing permission to find that one woman that walked by, at that one point..

"Yeah. I think so. I you know, it doesn't surprise me that in Hollywood, that's the thing to do. Now is to have a podcast. Doesn't surprise me at all. I think they sense. We're gonna podcasting bubble right now. And I think it's just like with the economy, the housing market, like I hate to say that, but I think like it's the hot thing. Everybody wants to do a podcast now. And you know you've been around this industry forever. I have, and I think everybody's coming in, and I think it's gonna be interesting because we're in this bubble. And it just keeps growing and growing and growing at some point, it's gonna burst because there's just there there. Be that many podcasts out there or good ones that I think at some points gonna be interesting, especially on the celebrity front to see who survives, the bubble burst. I think so. And then you've got some new new models. Right. So. This company that just came along that wants to create sort of the net flicks of podcasts where you'll pay them, like ten dollars a month to access thousands of podcasts. Many of which are original content, right? So it's almost like the Netflix thing where they'll have their own shows, by the way, I was listening to the executive of one of the executives in charge of original programming. In that flicks yesterday at Recode she was talking about. They have something like sixty two scripted shows now on, on Netflix. Plus thousands of other shows that they that they source in. But if you look at the, the I can't remember what the name of the company is, but it's a podcasting version of that where they're like, we're going to take all the regular podcast that you can get. But then we're also going to add these sort of premium podcasts, that we produce that are sort of, like, the, the original podcast wonder is one of the companies that does that okay? I, I shouldn't be saying that on a pod. Podcast one show. But. It's the truth. I think they're the ones. Yeah. They do it. It's almost series base. Like you can been there Benjamin. Right. Right. But I'm talking about like an app where you will pay, like, your ten dollars a month or eight dollars a month, whatever it is and get access to their whole catalogue of podcasts like Netflix. Is that what you're talking about too? Well, I know like see podcast one they've got an app and their stuff. That's free. But like this show if they want to go back and listen to death before your your show, where we had you on talking about your movie, that's behind a paywall. Okay. So my sixteen most current shows are available for free. But if you want to go back to episode seventeen it's always rolling. So, like, when I dropped this one one's gonna fall off. But if you want to go back and listen to, you know, like Jason Ellis when I had him on or something like that, you've got a an I it's not ten bucks. I think it's less than that might be four ninety nine I should know this. I don't off the top of my head. But yeah, whatever it is that, that. Price of a Cup of coffee or whatever it is every month you get access to all that, and it's not just mine. I mean it's like two hundred shows on podcast, one that they produce Corolla. Yeah. Adams, twenty thirty shows whatever up to week now. Yeah. No, adam. I've been to place. It's crazy. The way that thing works, like I have all the respect the world for them because like you and I were talking before we got on air. He's one of those, like Joe Rogan he's a free thinker. He's not Republican. He's not democrat. It's just a free thing. He's Adam he you know, he's just shoot from the hip and he tells you what's on his mind. I can appreciate people Stearns. Another one, you know. And I, I love people like that, because they're free thinkers, but well, they're not ideologically driven. They may have their own ideas, but that's not what drives them or that's not what the agenda is behind their broadcast. You know, you're not they're not aiming for one particular thing when they get on the air..

"It's a fourteen hundred dollar skateboard. I'm familiar with you sit there. You know, you start you stand on these things, and they're basically like an extent they're like having a superpower, you know, they're like an extension of the human body that just makes you a may like this amazing form of transportation, fourteen mile range, a main. These lithium ion is incredible on the w- the things that it's changed is amazing. But here's the newest thing that I saw powered that way there's a generator now or like think about what you used to use like for what most people still do. Use a gas power generator for lithium ion generator capable of running a lot of the same stuff in a compact design. You know, like amazing with him. I on just better for the environment. I mean, reusing car car batteries, or you know, what? I mean, just you know with the battery acid, and you know, they're just a mess. You've got your alkaline batteries you by, you know, by the dozens at WalMart or wherever and those things are horrible. Yeah. You know? It's like no lithium ions, just it's a better alternative, right? And so, but look at all the things like Tyler is now using that skateboard to get to school. He's going miles to get to school at twenty two miles an hour. He's in traffic. He's passing the traffic, and he's on a on a lecturer skateboard. And and this thing will last him all day he could make that journey to and from school five times in a row. And so it's changing everything I think it's going to continue to and I I don't know. I think. That's a little more static. You know, a lot of other things can change the microchip can get smaller and smaller. But really lithium ion it's going to be what it is for right now. And I think you know, it'll be other technologies will come along for batteries. I'm not sure I'm not too up on that. But I just think that's been a revolution two. And the the more things that gets applied to the other thing is those e scooters couldn't work without the smartphone. So like an true lot of things if you think about it, you buy you buy one of these smart devices, how are you going to interface with it? It's going to be through the smartphone. And so you don't have to build out. If you're building a scooter now, you don't have to build out the the the UI at all it's brought the cost down. Yeah. Just parrot drones.

No. It's. Just design an apple boom. It's there. It's so cool. So yeah, I just find find it all it's it's good. I think it's really good question. And I know this kind of goes in with actually didn't debut at CS, but this week, and I don't even know if you saw Yuan musk. They debuted space x starship. What is this? What is starch? Okay. We've got it here on the computer. Let me see where was it that it was on the front page of seen it earlier today that is my CAS stuff. So yes, he net space x starship is basically the consumer arket right here on veils assembled SpaceX starship and its glorious. Wow. So that is what is going not mood, my friend. Thank you on Musk's SpaceX ambitious plans to reach around the moon and all the way to Mars acquire a big f in rocket right EFF. I n f in rocket now, we know what he used to call it a lawn Muskie's called the BF are. Yeah. That is glorious. It's the most beautiful test flight rocket just finished assembly SpaceX Texas launch site. This is an actual picture, not a rendering. So that is an actual picture. And it almost looks like a painting. It's it's beautiful. You know, what it reminds me of is like all those images of what space travel would be like, but but like that that they had back in the fifties..

"And he goes, I'm gonna tell you guys. There's a small company. You know that invented the technology called bluetooth. He's like you should all go right now, and you should put one hundred dollars in that company in that company. Well, after like, it's a wireless technology that's going to take the world by storm. And I can't tell you. How many times had professor telling me this this this is that right? Yeah. Whenever you know. Stuff's never gonna go wireless. You know, whatever, you know. I'll tell you what I wish that was the one professor I would have listened to because bluetooth is everywhere. But you wanna I came out. You got a laptop. It was like, oh, you want bluetooth three hundred dollar option. Yeah. You know? But now, it's just it's you buy something expect to be in it. And I think like you're talking about smart home. I think it's it's going to come to a point where we're just it's going to be included, right? Right. Or you look at the home security market, right? Yeah. Used to be dispenser. Really like a lot of money and put sensors all around your house, and like the the whole thing and have this thing that's wired up to the phone company. And the phone company has to be involved. And meantime, everyone's thinking I can't afford. Ford that you know, I'll just like some times, you know, be burgled. I guess now. Now, you have you know, a little device that sits in the corner of your room. And does it all wirelessly, and I've got like ten years ago, we moved into our house we had security system. And I've got the panel in the wall it's turned off now. And like all these relic of sensors in my house and stuff like that. And they they're not used. Yeah. It's like phone lines that are all through houses or coaxial cable all through houses for TV's that used to run standard definition TVs. You don't need it anymore. You know, it's so everything has changed. And I I never thought I'd see so much wireless. I'll tell you one product at took me a little bit by I guess, it shouldn't have. Took me by surprise because I guess a big a big change over the last few years in tech has been a lithium ion batteries, right? They they've enabled so much from the tesla model s to like the the smartphone or like the all day battery on a MAC book or but now or even like look at the east cooter thing that I mean, I don't know up in Tempe. Those things are everywhere light yet know there's some big drama with that no scooters on campus. Every I will tell you this like we have an apartment up there. Now, they're everywhere like you walk outside. They're they're littering everywhere. I personally like them, but litho without lithium ion coupled with a good electric drive train, those things are not or my kid has a boosted board now. A boost board is an electric skateboard..

"And so I do like that. I'm not you and I are in the legal system though. Yeah. I have apple desktop. I've got an apple laptop. I've got an iphone. I don't have an I watch. I just I'm not to watch person. But I'm the same way. I've got apple TV. I've got an ipad at home wherever I go. My emails. They're my pictures. Everything's the same. It's universal bend matter. Which device I pick up. It's familiar. It's that's where that's the biggest change over like the last five years, right? Is that everything is available everywhere because all cloud based now. And and and like what what more do you need. You just need it to work, and you need it to be quick and easy and everything to be there. So it doesn't matter if I'm driving or if I'm, you know in the office or whatever or in studio with you here if I need access to some area of my life. I haven't. Yeah. No. I think you know, I guess I one of the things that does have excited in. I know there was a lot of it in CS is the smart home. You don't be walk into a room and having access to things there. And you know, I know a lot of this kind of ties him, they I, but I'm really excited the next, you know, and I know like, especially here Parker in a lot of areas in the country. You know, homes haven't really adopted the whole smart home. They're still once in a while, you'll see USB outlets in walls and things like that. Which now are going to become stone-age because this apple laptop. It's USB. See, right. Yeah. You know, so. But yeah. So I mean, that's one of the things that's really the whole smart home thing. I'm really excited to see in the next ten years where homes are were you literally walk in like it recognize you're in a room and adjust temperatures to you know. Yeah. And hopefully that stuff gets cheaper. 'cause now to build out a smart home properly. You're still talking about four figures really to do it. Right. Because you I mean, you'd have to replace all the light bulbs of smart bulbs, right to do the lighting scenes properly. There's no point in having in my humble opinion. There's no point in having won smart bulb in your house, though, we're going to live in your MRs smartly have one fixture. And that's it. What you want is like, basically, everything in your house to be smart thing and then set up with scenes, so that, you know, okay series. It's dinnertime and and things adjust or hey, you know, what to do when when it comes bedtime or whatever it is same with thermostats. You can do a couple of hunt. Bucks or there? You can do that. But yeah, I I like all that too. I think it's where it's going. I just think it has to be easy. But it's kind of like if you walked into Home Depot, and you saw. You know, I don't know ten different balls and most of them had just the smart stuff built in because it was cheap enough for them just to add it now and most people wanted it because that's the way households were you know, that's where it's at. I don't think people are going to spend a ton more. The average person I'm talking about people like you, and I will. But the average person isn't gonna spend a ton more for those things it's about bringing the cost down to where it's affordable for everybody. Fifty fifty cents more bulb or something people that? Yeah. I'll try it out. Right. It's five bucks more. Nope. Right. And then every and then everybody will just have it because why not Reno? Well, we've got the thing with that way with bluetooth, and you know, and I remember, and this is one of those where I actually I was in college early two thousands. We're talking probably actually two thousand two thousand one how to economics or a teacher something, you know, we're talking about something..

"But when it comes to see ES, it's like you'd look at the trends, and you're just thinking, okay. I can see where this might be. I'll tell you one of the things you might disagree with me on this. I had a guy right me. I wrote this on Instagram yesterday. And I had a guy who's in the automobile. He's a guy that's involved in like he owns the company that say Subaru hires to launch their new vehicle. So like, the he does all the audio visuals for them. He makes videos they do the whole product once he's in charge of that side of it. So he wrote me back, and he told me I was completely wrong about this. And you would know way more than may two as well as this guy. So tell me if I'm right? I hate all these concept cars at at places like ES where like you'll see a car where you get in it. And you're facing the other passengers on the other side, you know, it's like they can all you're watching a big TV and everyone's happy, and like, you know, drinking cocktails or something while the car brings them wherever I'm just like that so far down the line for me. And I just don't even see a lot of these concept cars, I never see them on the road ever. Like what's on the road is like a? An extra at the at the very best. It's an extremely watered down version of what was it something like CAS, can you comment on this? Jim, I don't know. I mean, I see those and to me it's just I don't even I don't even pay attention like I don't pay attention because it's like it doesn't seem relevant to anything that's going to come out anytime soon. No. And you know, I guess the thing that gets me more excited is you see that like something ES, you know, that Ford may say Ford may put that into production, but it's not going to be another fifteen twenty years or something. And right actually, a lot of them. They're just flat not gonna do. They're not going to do it. They put that out there to just to say, they can what gets me more excited going to like the Sema show where you've got these car builders, and they actually take a car that's in production, and they redo the car with that and it street legal, and you can do it. Now, if you want to write a big enough check, I say, and so that means more to more excited because actually it's real it's in the flesh, and I can attain it if I can write a big enough check. Right. I like that. I like that. You know? So I guess that gets me excited. But honestly, like those concept cars and stuff at CS one. They say, hey, this is coming in our twenty nineteen car model or are twenty twenty car model. Oh, you've got my attention. That's right. You're getting put into production like when Ford teamed up with Microsoft years ago for the first or sink for the original new dashboard system. Right fun tastic. Like it came out. It wasn't like some concept. It was revolutionized the industry lately changed a lot of stuff for everyone had to then compete and got apple carplay Google's got their version of car play. And it just makes sense to me that you would involve Silicon Valley in those decisions. Like, if you want good good operating system on your dashboard, go to Silicon Valley, and like ask people there because they know they write software, and they're better than you. You know, that's what they do. So it just makes sense to me that you wouldn't have all these proprietary systems in cars, and that is what I like about carplay. And it's what I like about. Sort of just some of this standardization. And I guess that's what I mean about if you can talk to Alexa on your kitchen counter, and then you can go to your car and talk to her as well. And it's the same system. And she remembers what station you're listening to in the house. Right. And then you can do the same. When you get into the office like to me that kind of I guess universality is really appealing to me. And I think that's where tech needs needs to go more, and where it is going more..

"Well, I'm going to have to this one starting to start having issues. Right. I've got my money out of it. Even though it was forty five hundred dollars. Literally, you can have something over a decade. That's tack. Like, you got your money out of it. That's right. But I was on Samsung's website because they've got. Deal with apple which I think is funny because their competitors in the in the phone market. But Samsung is integrating apple TV into their television sets the new generation of Samsung. So it's going to be a Samsung apple TV I like it. So I'm I'm going to buy one of those when it comes out because everything I've got apple right? But I was on their website kinda researching this stuff and they've got they've got one it's called the frame. It's like a sixty inch television. But it literally has a legit picture frame around it. And so so when you're not watching TV literally, it's got preprogrammed with like, these amazing pictures like conic paintings and stuff like that. So it hangs on the wall. And you look at it. And you can't even tell us a television set it looks like artwork. And then when and then when you yeah. And then when you're ready to, you know, watch TV flip a button, and then boom, all your apps and the smart TV stuff comes up, and you know, and things like that. But literally off it looks like a painting on the wall. That's interesting. Yeah. That's interesting stuff. So I don't. Even I mean, so to me, that's that's always something people watch for because the TV still a big part of people's lives. But you know, it's all of these smaller screens that has the biggest growth in terms of like chain. You know, changing what I guess behavior because people have been sitting down for at the TV for you know, decades, of course. So it's always other categories of devices like, I guess like the big thing with tech. Now is I everything's a screen if the TV's screen, the laptop tablet, the desktop the smartphone, the watch a, you know, the the the other wearables, but everything's a screen, you know, and I just find that kind of interesting. The other thing that I've noticed is. You know, how like in the last few years all of these? The Amazon's Alexa, and the Google Google version and the Appalachian, and they're all competing, and now it seems like Alexa, is appearing on a lot of different other devices. So it's like, you know, there's a toilet with Alexa. There's a you know, I saw this plug. It's almost like a cigarette lighter. Plug in thing that puts Google home in your car through your speakers and stuff via bluetooth, and so they can kind of like it's a personal assistant for the column fingers start. They're starting to remember, and you know in cater, and that's kind of I know you, and I were talking about AI and things like that. But I don't have an Alexa. I don't have a home pod. I don't actually use Siri on my phone. You're not an assistant guy. No. I I've part of it kind of creeps me out to be honest with you, are you one of these guys that are worried about Alexa, listening to you and spying on you know. No, I think what worries me is. I. I think those people have a little less to be worried about the you know, they should be worried about the burgers. They're eaten with the heart attack. You know, instead of Alexa, because believe me, you're not that interesting. You know, I don't worry about that. At all. I guess to me like, I guess it's not I don't know. I think it's the future. Not what we have now. But I see like these robots that are starting to carry conversations. Remember remember things see the videos of Batak in the going in. Then you've got movies like X, mocking. I don't know if you amazing movie, but I think that where the robots become their computers, they're smarter than us. I don't care what computers always going to be smarter than us..

"Now what I might be able to afford in two years as they've got see. ES now. Yeah. Well, you remember how? Whether they used to call plasma TV's, I've still got one of my house. Yeah. What they what what they used to cost when they first came out. Yeah. Which is funny. I've got I've got a sixty inch pioneer plasma TV. So it's it's I got it. In two thousand six cost me, I had sold a car like one of my I had a car and old the cougar. And I if TV cost me forty five hundred dollars for the sixty inch plasma TV, and it was the top of the market top in. It was you know, I it was everything you wanted into TV. It's still works today. It was a great like it was a great TV. I still haven't my house, but that TV is like fifty five hundred bucks. Now less was going to say like is it in fear? I mean, okay. So you definitely paid a premium to be an early adopter of the plasma thing. Or at least. I mean. Yeah. I would say it's seven twenty nine hundred ten eighty p. Okay. Yeah. I would consider that to be early adoption. I mean, if you're forty five hundred dollars for a TV that's that's early to get into that game. Because I think in two thousand seven I'm trying to think of what most people would have been watching then a lot. People had projection TV objection those big boxy terrible. I had one. And that's what this replace that. A forty two inch one of those that paid like eight hundred bucks for college. They weren't good. No. It was they weren't horrid. But they I mean, just the I mean better than two TV's. Sure. And I suppose like I'm looking at a little unfair because I'm looking at them with today's is right. But I bought a busy. Oh, sixty five inch something a couple years for like fifteen hundred bucks or something like that. Now that same TV's about eight hundred and so you're thinking or you know, similar the version of this. But it's a four K TV. So so now where TV's are at they've gone into this lead category. And then there's something called micro LED. I believe which is even more of a so they're getting thinner. They're getting brighter. They're getting better contrast ratio of the women's role. -able now, it's Roble LED that came out at CS. It's literally it's flexible flexible, so they literally you can. It kind of like flexible, so it kind of falls over and rolls. And so they have like a console, and you can have stuff on there and hide the TV. And then when you wanna watch push button, and then it's like the old TV kinda rolls up out. That's good. No. It's insane. Yet isn't well. And so I mean, you know, how like when you walk around you can fairly easily see how how old other people are like you can get make a guess at least oh that woman's probably about seventy in. That guy's probably about fifty years. You know, you ever kind of get an idea. It's funny. How you can look at monitors. Now, our TV's now and sort of see, okay? So that has a big Bethel around the site. So it's probably that's like a two inch. Benzel that's got to be like a six seven year old TV you know, at four inches thick. And now they're half an inch thick or or even less almost like Bengalis. Now, some of the some of these TV's, so they got this tiny little band around the site just to kind of hold in the pixels. And so you can also that's that's got to be like a twenty year old guy. Right there. You know, original iphone, I saw one the other day. It was like, you know, I can't even remember where I saw somebody had it was like in their drawer, you know. They don't use it anymore. But I was looking at missing was so awesome. When it first came out, and now, it's just like, wow. That was school. It wasn't. And I remember they could only charge a certain amount for it to member. 'cause the one I bought was the iphone three g okay? My first one was iphone four exclusively AT and T for awhile and variety. Okay. Yeah. So I had to. I phone three g which was that second iphone, and I still have it. It's my early. I'm holding on that. But. You look at it..

"I mean, like, what's it conversation, you growing up in Ireland because I, you know, people here have been around casinos and gambling and lotteries and things like that. And I mean, we see rich and poor. I mean what I mean, what are the compare Ables? I mean, what were you know? 'cause people, you know, I mean, we know what people think about, you know, growing up here in the states and things like that that on people's minds, but Northern Ireland. I mean at one point you guys had all kinds of riots happening in streets is a kid growing up there. I mean, what what was on your mind? What was on people's minds? I mean, did you know? Here's what's weird about that whole thing if if you look at just I rush society as a culture, it's very very stable their way fewer people getting super-rich way fewer people who are super poor. Everybody's in the middle. It's very like stable. Nice, you know, just status quo yet middle class. Kind of like just solid. You know, you're never going to be like super super hot happy, and you're never going to be super miserable. You're just gonna life is fairly like goes on it goes on. And it's like, I it's it's it's a comforting thing in a way because it's like, oh, yeah. I mean, I can never get so sick that I'm going to be bankrupt. I can never get. So I can never fall off the society's Weikun. So so hard the break every bone in my body, and and you know, never recover that just doesn't happen in that society. This sort of like this stability, probably in a peace of mind. I'm sure to there is it's very like stress free way of life. However, it's also more boring, right and more mundane and more, and there's less sort of like just drama and excitement roller coaster. Doesn't have the ups and downs. We have here in this. Right. That's that's exactly right. So then so then you add what you were talking about which they call the troubles. Like if you look. Yup. Northern Ireland the troubles that they actually call it that kind of war that was going on whenever I lived there growing up there that was you know, bombs and guns in the whole thing. But it's funny. How that never really affected most people like it affected the people at affected almost like gangs in L A or something like that. Where it affects those people. Yeah. Like their lives are completely defined by those by those gangs, and all the violence and everything going on. But you know, you can be driving by on the one. Oh, one not notice it. Right. So it was kind of like that. Does that make sense totally makes warmer? Yeah. It's you know, it's like terrible. And in a way, it's part of the culture like there's certain areas, you knew not to go to right because I I would say it's very much like Los Angeles where the areas in Los Angeles where we know you probably. Drive through there or or definitely shouldn't walk. Yeah. Exactly. We shouldn't get out like if we're driving through. We should just get the hell through. Yeah. So okay. No makes total. Like, I said you, and I, you know, but it's funny because like if you go one of the things that was funny coming here was I had to suddenly see race for the first time because before. Over here. It actually means something like I could I could find myself in a neighborhood where I'm the only white guy, and that actually has a has a perceivable effect on my safety, potentially. Right. There are areas of the country like that. Well, here's the thing. There are areas of Belfast Northern Ireland like that. But you don't it. They're not defined by race. They're defined by Protestant or Catholic. Okay. So you're so like and believe me, they have ways of knowing you know, like, you they could although see the scar here on her my that scar is the result of a missile benefit of me as a Catholic at twelve years old by group of Protestant, boys. I grew up Protestant Northern Ireland. But they. They thought I was Catholic because I was coming from kind of a Catholic area. So there's like neighborhoods right is like Compton. And you know, what's an atheist in in Ireland? Are you like a like a witch, and they wanna burn you at the stake type of thing..

"It's like, I think this could become like almost a monthly thing. Because you just go down all these fun things. Josh attacking my doing our own thing. Actually talk him on the phone this week, by the way, he's telling me. Yeah. I need him to I didn't produce need to sort his life out. There's so many things that you and I need to intervene. He needs an intervention, Josh amino. If you're listening, you need an intervention, buddy. We'll get into that. We started talking of all things, and I guess this is because we can do whatever want on this podcast. I started talking about the marijuana industry in Oregon because that's where he's at. And he's like, dude literally he's like there's three shops within like a block of my house. He's like it's crazy up here. He's like, it's just everywhere. And he's like, I don't think anybody's making any money at it. Because there's so many of them up here funny. Yeah. And I think like after a while when that industry matures a little bit. It'll be a little more just like, you know, alcohol cigarettes. Whatever the wild west right now, it is it's crazy, and it has been a growth industry, and I guess a lot of people who got into it. You know, moneywise really ended up making a lot of my. And it's what's really funny to me about America is because I'm not from this country. I'm from Northern Ireland. When I came over here, I came over at the age of twenty four, and I'm learning a lot about the culture, and the people and everything and you know, conservatives at the time were totally like against marijuana. You know, marijuana was for liberals, and hippies and whatever, and it will or like, you know, deadbeat kind of sixties guys stone her and the soon as their became opportunities in money. Like the real relate. You're talking about the real religion of America. It's the almighty dollar as soon. Yeah. Everybody changes their mind as soon as there's dollars. Oh, wait. You mean, we could get into that. Hey, why don't we start that up? Wait. I thought you were totally against Wade. You know, and so it's not so bad. So funny. So like now, yes, I guess, but but I guess all the smart money has probably already come and gone in that thing. Right. I mean is there any opportunities now in? I don't think I almost like bitcoin came and went to in like in like a year, and it's funny like that peaked out, and I actually what is a coin base. They've got an app where you can actually buy and sell. I bought a year ago at the peak of the market. I bought fifty dollars in bitcoin. Just just to see what I wanted to try the app out first of all just to see you know, what I mean? So I've got my Bank account link to it. I fifty dollars and I bought it when it was like at fifteen thousand I think bitcoin announce down like three or something. So I think I've lost like thirty bucks. But I didn't I bought it literally. Because I think fifty bucks is the minimum. And I just wanted to see how it worked and stuff. So I still log in their dollars and bitcoin our something. And of course, if that was multiplied many many times over you would be very very mad right now. But the guys have bought it at fifty cents or a dollar that in the, you know, the people that bought in there, they're doing really, well, really, well, but I mean, you would have had to have almost something slightly wrong with you to like throw, you know, a million dollars at bitcoin back in those days. Right. Unless you really really believe it. I don't know who did that. But I'm not saying when I'm saying came and went I'm not even. I'm sure there are a lot of listeners who had who have bitcoin now. And just hope it will go back up again. I'm sure that'll that might work out. I don't think bitcoins going anywhere. Like, I know. But I think it's cryptocurrencies are awesome. But I'm just saying like that sort of peak and everything and how everybody was super excited dot com bubble, right, or whatever, you know. Right. And this is why I am such a risk averse person..

"john wright" Discussed on Jim Beaver's Project Action

"Some C ESN is consumer electronic show McGee friend, John, right? All right like to welcome John right back to project action here. When do we do that last interview when we got your six months ago documented, I would actually I've looked back through? It's still I don't know how your numbers are doing views of your video our video your film. But those numbers on that like, I look back and usually podcast that are dated six months. You might get few downloads a month like that one still doing a couple hundred downloads a month. That's great. Well, you know, it's funny because I don't even see the numbers for the film like my producer in LIC's it, and then he the executive producer. And then he he'll sort of give me the cliff notes version. He doesn't really tell me very much, which I'm yeah, I'm happy. I'm doing other things now. And so that's like an evergreen. That's that's like a evergreen documentary though. It's not like, you know. So I think it's one of those somebody can watch it four or five years from now, and it's still relevant. Exactly. So I think that's probably why the interview still does that people see the movie and then they're like oh. And then they research you or whatever. And they're like, oh, well, listen to this. If you if you're typing in the name of the film or you're typing in John right Cam polo film or anything you'll you'll probably find this podcast eventually that we did if you look down the Google search results enough. It was just funny. I look at everything. And I mean, I've got triple eight celebrities and stuff in there stuff still doing peanuts six months later that one still to guaranteed. Couple hundred listens. Every single Mojo like, wow, it was worthwhile. Yeah. So it just made me wonder, I'm like the films. If my podcast with us doing that the film still got to be doing pretty decent. It is. You know? It's it's it's like you said, evergreen people like the content people like the subject of that. And like, you know, what it says about I don't know, I suppose just people's inner thought life about a lot of stuff. And so now, especially right bright now with where we're at in this country. And this is not what this podcast gonna be about today. But you go down these roads. But I think like religion is really like on the forefront of people's minds. I mean, it's factoring into this whole political conversation. Having and yeah, I think it all ties together. So I think, you know, the topic of that film like it's so relevant right now. Right. So what it is like fewer and fewer people are actually like religious religious and more and more people say, they're quote, unquote, spiritual. Whatever that means. And so, you know, people have opinions on what that means are like they you know, they got their own thing going on. But it's not necessarily the film is about those topics. And I think those are always like you say a little bit relevant, but kind of under the hood relevant. It's not like what you're gonna see the front cover the New York Times, necessarily, like it's just stuff that's under the it's it's it's just like running on on background all the time, you know, people's lives, the the topic of like, faith and doubt. And like what people believe in why? And if you get people drunk at a party, you can talk about it. It's one of those taboo conversations you don't want to say it. But it's people are forward with it. I mean there there are certain. People that are, but it's not a forward topic years ago. I think politics would have been the would have been the the thing that you don't talk about. Sex money politics. Right. But now, it's just religion. You can talk about sex at a party. You could talk about politics. You just can't talk about religion. You can't like question. Somebody's religious beliefs or tell them that they're stupid for believing them. So, yeah, it's a last great taboo, my friend. Title your next film? The last great. If I want to do another just film. I'll do that last. Great. So. Yeah. So we reached out to you because I'm like always wanna do podcast with you..
