Bernie Brillstein Sad Tale of John Belushi’s Last Days
"We're sitting at the palm one day and my manager is telling him, hey, this is my man AJ, we got a lot of things planned and gossiped and TV show that and Bernie was listening. As he's picking food off the plate, and I said to him, can I ask you about John Belushi? And my manager Howard, you know, kind of kicking my knee under the table as if to say, come on, come on. No, no, no. But I could tell Bernie would be cool. And he said to me, yeah, kid, what do you want to know? And before I could ask a pointed question, Bernie launched into how difficult it was at the end to manage John the addict. Not the talent. To manage the addict. And one story stick stuck with him forever. And you could sense it when he told the story. It was kind of, I guess, customary for managers back then to well, maybe John asked him whatever, but Bernie had kept a bunch of money in his safe that John had earned, and he kept a bunch of it in a safe, so John wouldn't waste it on shit. He was looking out for him. And at one point, during his really crazy, hazy drug days, he visited Bernie and he wanted that money from the safe. He asked for 1500 bucks in cash, and Bernie said, no, no, I'm not going to give it to you, John. You're going to waste it you're going to blow it on drugs, bullshit. You got a lot of things happening. You got a movie script. You got two movies waiting for you. There was a movie he wanted him to make called the joy of sex. There was the fatty arbuckle movie and Bernie was thinking about all that money coming in. And 1500 bucks on a Friday night or whatever the fuck it was. No, that could be a bunch of problems. But John kept bugging him. It's my money, Bernie. It's my money, Bernie. I'm not going to give you the money. You're going to use it on drugs, John. But eventually, he relented and as he said to me, what can I do? It's his money. He earned it. How could I keep it from him? So he relented and later that day he gave Belushi the cash and the rest is history. He spent that money on a bunch of drugs, cocaine and heroin, and that's how he died later at the chateau marmont. Injecting a speedball into his arm. So Bernie always felt somewhat responsible for that death.
How John Belushi Met Manager Bernie Brillstein
"So the first time Bernie brillstein met John Belushi was 15 minutes before the first taping of SNL. Two days before that, NBC's legal department sent Belushi an employment agreement and Belushi was worried because of a small clause that said NBC had the right to cancel his contract if he were disfigured. Now, you have to understand that cameras are ready to roll. And John still hadn't signed the contract. And an NBC executive was like pleading with brillstein and John to sign the agreement and Belushi leaned over to brillstein and said, would you sign this contract? And Bernie said, I designed the fucking contract, sign it. You can always break it. Let's make millions. You're just not going to find guys like that anymore. So that was the beginning of a very long and close relationship. While almost like father and son,
John Zmirak and Eric Discuss E. Michael Jones' Antisemitism
"Years ago, I read some of E Michael Jones's books. And again, this is what Nick Fuentes is kind of following, right? I read some of his books and he wrote one called degenerate moderns. It was brilliant. He wrote another one about architecture and another one, I forget. But brilliant stuff, right? And so I visited him in his home and I didn't see the anti semitic side of him until right around that time, a friend of mine, doctor Jeffrey sat in over, wrote a brilliant book, he is a genius psychiatrist, he has a degree in quantum physics. One of the smartest people I know, not a Christian, but he wrote an amazing book from the point of view of a psychiatrist who had dealt with people struggling with same sex attraction. And it really an amazing, amazing book, sat in over his last name. And so I interviewed him and reviewed it ostensibly for E Michael Jones magazine. He hardly printed anything of what I wrote. He cut almost everything. And then he wrote a review that was effectively anti semitic. And I will never, ever, ever forget it. I read it and I thought, this, this can be, this is the whole, the whole review of this great book, which was homosexuality and the politics of truth by Jeff sat in over hinged on really an anti semitic idea. And that's when I realized 27 years ago, uh oh, I don't know that I can spend any more time. You're telling me Nick Fuentes who just had dinner with the president is following you, Michael. Right. That's right. And I'll just explain briefly to your readers. Michael Jones is a theological Jew hater. He doesn't hate them racially. He doesn't believe in Nazi crackpot racialism. He believes that any one of the Jewish people who does not accept Jesus is the moral equivalent of the sadducees and that he takes literally the statement, let their blood be upon us and upon our children. He channels the old old anti semitism of some of the church fathers and some people in the Middle Ages. He takes all that, not as a historical tragedy and abuse, but as an authoritative part of the Christian tradition. And he describes the Jews who did not follow Jesus as the synagogue of Satan and the mystical body of Antichrist. That has existed ever since the death of our lord. And as a sort of satanic counter church. And so he blames Jews for pornography, even though the Marquis de Sade was not Jewish. He blames them for abortion. Margaret Sanger was not Jewish. He manages to act as if the Jewish people by not accepting Jesus became Antichrist. And
'Welcome to Crazy Town' With Eric and John Zmirak
"To crazy town. I'm not going to John's mere trying to process the crazy. We were just talking about Donald Trump letting people into his life, whom he ought not to let into his life. And I think he never admits he's made a mistake or it's almost like a policy with him, don't apologize. Most of which I agree with actually because in many cases, when you do that, people just attack you more. But I will say this. You know, you have to consider to whom your apologizing if it's the woke mob that's slathering for blood, you know, you let it go. But when it comes to the neocons that he appointed, this is 6 years ago, I don't believe he understood what he was facing. I don't understand that he understood he's facing a deep state, a uni party people that are really basically against him and they're kind of coming on board almost to manage him and to make sure he can't achieve his agenda and to some extent he has spoken out against a number of them. But in any event, we have to go back to Nick Fuentes because this is the other end of the spectrum. This is somebody that Trump never never, never ought to have allowed to, you know, have a photo or a dinner. He needs to have a better filter. My fear, okay? My fear is that this terrible mistake of inviting this pitiful incel weirdo next fun days. That this will simply be used by the rhinos in his own entourage and family and circle, the rhinos who do surround him, this will be used to keep out real conservatives. So this will be used to limit the influence of somebody great like Steve Bannon or Mike lyndell or you because this will get you what this does is it feeds into the narrative that there is this dangerous far right movement out there. And we have to avoid being tarred by it, okay? Donald, we can't be tarred by association with this growing dangerous movement. None of which is true. Nick Fuentes is not leader of a dangerous movement. He is a cult figure for a small number of disaffected 20 year olds with nothing better to do than watch videos that make Holocaust jokes
John Zmirak and Eric Discuss Kanye West
"Lot of people tune into this program because we want to help them process what's going on. So we don't have to talk about it right away. But I want to make it very clear. Nick Fuentes, bad. This is something this is an example of sloppiness and bad staffing in the Trump organization. Recently, Donald Trump had dinner with Kanye West. That's a mistake right there, okay? Kanye West, when he was preaching the gospel of leading powerful Christian services, there was hope that this man had had a profound conversion and might have a powerful impact on the culture. But you always be careful with zealous new converts. You don't let them take over. That's what happened among conservatives. We let the neoconservatives, a lot of them ex communists, they came in. They were super smart. They were super articulate. We let them come into the movement. They took over and put America at war in the Middle East for 30 years. You don't let it's nice at the town poker gets religion. But you let her be in the back for a while, I'd really assimilate. You don't let her start preaching sermons right up top and take over the church's budget. Letting Kanye West be a major figure among conservatives and Christians was always dangerous because the guys kind of like Elvis Presley kind of like Michael Jackson, a super rich super famous guy surrounded by yes men. Anybody who speaks realistically tries to whisper truth in his ear, he will send them away. He has no restraining influences. So he's going to do and say, crazy stuff. Like apparently Kanye is now endorsing the black Hebrew, Israelites. These are the people you see in Times Square with giant signs saying that Obama was literally the Antichrist and that blacks are the real Jews and that John, where did you, this is such bad news. And I feel bad. Listen, I love Kanye, he's a sweet soul, but he is clearly, he's got to choose and he does not just as you said, doesn't seem to have people around him to help him to let him know like don't get near that. And by the way, don't say anything infinitely stupid like the Jews or anything. I mean, it's just so sick when people say stuff like that. It's astonishing to me.
Day 333 of The Bible in a Year: Peter Is Rescued From Prison
"The acts of the apostles, chapter 12. James killed, and Peter imprisoned by Herod. About that time Herod the king laid violent hands upon some who belonged to the church, he killed James, the brother of John with the sword. And when he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter also. This was during the days of unleavened bread, and when he had seized him, he put him in prison and delivered him to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending after the Passover to bring him out to the people. So, Peter was kept in prison, but Ernest prayer for him was being made to God by the church. An angel rescues Peter from prison. That very night, when Herod was about to bring him out, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers bound with two chains and sentries before the door were guarding the prison. And behold, an angel of the lord appeared, and a light shone in the cell, and he struck Peter on the side and woke him saying, get up quickly. And the chains fell off his hands, and the angel said to him, dress yourself and put on your sandals, and he did so. And he said to him, wrap your cloak around you and follow followed him, he did not know that what was done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision. When they had passed the first and the second guard, they came to the iron gate leading into the city. It opened to them of its own accord, and they went out and passed on through one street, and immediately the angel left him. And Peter came to himself and said, now I am sure that the lord has sent his angel and rescued me from the hand of Herod, and from all that the Jewish people were expecting. When he realized this, he went to the house of Mary, the mother of John, whose other name was Mark, where many were gathered together and were praying, and when he knocked at the door of the gateway, I made named rhoda came to answer. Recognizing Peter's voice in her joy, she did not open the gate, but ran in and told that Peter was standing at the gate. They said to her, you are mad. But she insisted that it was so. They said, it is his angel. But Peter continued knocking, and when they opened, they saw him and were amazed. But motioning to them with his hand to be silent, he described to them how the lord had brought him out of the prison, and he said, tell this to James, and to the brethren. Then he departed, and went to another place.
Bahamas AG Defends Its Crypto Savvy in Wake of FTX Crash
"To sum up where we left off, the last non interview show was Saturday November 19th. At that point, we had discussed how the $420 million meme raise went directly into Sam's pockets, how Sam's white collar crime lawyers had fired him as a client, how the SEC, the CFTC, and the DoJ all said their investigating, and how new CEO chief overseeing the restructuring John ray claimed that the bahamian bankruptcy was at odds with the U.S. process and further that given that The Bahamas asked for FTX to transfer some assets to them after the chapter 11 bankruptcy was declared that they might actively be compromised as well. And this gets us to one of the stranger dimensions of this whole conflict, which is the international dimension. On Sunday Night, Ryan pinder, who's The Bahamas attorney general, as well as the senator and the minister for legal affairs, made a national address detailing the nation's view of the FTX collapse. One might hope that he would use this as a chance to denounce the fraudulent practices that the company perpetuated. But, alas. That is not what we saw. Instead, pinder characterized the collapse as a quote insolvency crisis, which has been, quote, experienced around the world in practically every sector. He claimed the case should be properly understood as a quote very large business failure as a result of questionable internal management practices and corporate governance. He viewed the catalyst of the FTX collapse as the exchange suffering a liquidity crunch or a run on the bank. And of course, we've seen this framing in media sources as well. Basically blaming binance CEO CZ for instigating a bank run on a competitor and treating the collapse as a normal corporate failure rather than asking why FTX failed to be able to service customer withdrawals, especially given that their terms of service laid out the customer funds were held on trust rather than used for other purposes. Now, sidebar, this is one of the most important things to be paying attention to right now. As relating this entire situation. It is extremely clear that Sam is trying to turn this story his FTX story into one of managerial and competence rather than fraud and deception. This is to be clear another lie.
Buffalo gunman pleads guilty in racist supermarket massacre
"A gunman in Buffalo has pleaded guilty to the racist supermarket massacre earlier this year. This case is a poster child for swift justice. Erie county district attorney John Flynn at a news conference carried by W K B W after the white gunmen who killed ten black people at a buffalo supermarket last May pleaded guilty. Justice has been done today. But while justice has been accomplished, nothing will ever bring back the ten beautiful people who lost their lives on that day. Attorney Ben crump, who represents some of the victims families on a very difficult day. It was just gut wrenching. And it made you angry all over again. I'm Shelley Adler.
Dinesh Reveals the Effects of Musk Derangement Syndrome
"Let's turn to mister Elon Musk because he is causing the left to have a freak out. And it's a little bit interesting to think about why. Is it because, well, one thought it occurred to me yesterday and that is that Elon Musk has been really focused. He's freeing speech on the one side, but he goes, I'm really going to crack down on Twitter on pedophiles on pedophiles. And this too has freaked out the left. It's kind of interesting to see. I mean, is it because there's a substantial fraction of pedophiles in the cultural left as Elon Musk kind of nuking a wing of the left that doesn't, you know, they can't openly say, well, we're pedophiles. So what they do is they pretend I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be leaving Twitter on principle. It could be a secret reason for the leftist freak out. Here's Alyssa Milano, who, by the way, used to be a huge Elon Musk fan. I have found it fascinating. You're a couple of Milano tweets. I'm in awe of Elon Musk. And then she goes on to thanks Elon Musk and Tesla. Elon Musk you're amazing. She says that she could have dinner with four people. She picked Jesus Roberto Clemente John Lennon and Elon Musk. And then more recently, here's Alyssa Milano. I gave back my Tesla. I bought the Volkswagen. I love it. Now, what's so weird about this is first of all, she's turned on Musk. Why? Because evidently he's for free speech. That alone is enough to set her off. Number two, she buys, let's call it the Nazi car. Why? Because Vogue, if you want to talk about history, Volkswagen was started under the Nazi regime, it's in fact the word volk is a very fascist term volk means, of course, people and the Nazis who were socialists talked about the people's car, Volkswagen, the wagon of the people. So here's a list of Milana while she doesn't really know about her, but nevertheless, part of she has MDS Musk the arrangements syndrome.
China's Xi faces threat from public anger over 'zero COVID'
"Many a month after granting himself new powers, China's leader Xi Jinping is facing the kind of public anger not seen for decades due to his zero COVID strategy. Demonstrators in Chengdu chanted and locked down and free speech, as well as make China great again as they gathered in the dark around candles in Shanghai protesters assembled along the streets, many chanting and filming a stream of police officers arriving to control the protests. Widespread demonstrations like these have not been seen in China since the army crushed the 1989 student led pro democracy movement in Beijing's Tiananmen Square, John Hopkins political analyst of says, however, the protests happening now are less of a threat to the government than the chairman uprising. Students and protesting that there's clear sign that the party leadership is divided. And
John Berlau: 'Stocks and Cryptos Will Go Up and Down'
"Opposed to say a Facebook stock, which has thousands of other stocks out there, you know, a similar liking kind, if you would. Crypto is still considered neat. Crypto is still considered, I mean, if you ask a man on the street, ten people, I would be amazed if you got four people that actually understood crypto in Bitcoin and others and the markets how it works to start with possibly less than that. I understand what you're saying about it not affecting others. But the reality is, I think for newer investors, for those who are looking at, don't you think this could actually affect and if not, have we settled a little bit? I mean, maybe Facebook will shouldn't be at 300. It should be at a hundred. Maybe Bitcoin shouldn't have been at 60, it should have been at 16. Where do you see that? I think the big issues. I mean, going up and down generally stocks and cryptos going will go up and down. And that really isn't an issue for it's an issue for the maybe an issue for the individual investor. That's why it's important to diversify, but it's not an issue for public policy. One of the issues with cryptocurrency is that with exchanges you just because of the way the law actually you don't have the same rights as far as being able to access the crypto at whatever value it is. I mean, some exchanges are now doing things like proof of reserves, but generally if they go bankrupt your like an unsecured unsecured credit or rather than having access to that. And there are things that can be done like allowing banks and trust companies to offer trust accounts where there is what's called segregation of assets, but generally now the choice is either either doing that on an exchange where there are less controls about what they do with customer assets. And as far as in as far as legal rights and there are holding it in a wallet of what's called a cold wallet, digital wallet, where, you know, you don't have the risk of the exchange losing it or going by. But then you have other risks like remembering your password,
FTX: Beyond the Headlines With John Berlau
"Quick detour here because you brought this up and I was just reading this this morning. This environmental government issue that we're talking about ASC stuff is there's a lot of concern among Wall Street right now, especially going into directors meetings and elections or directors and some of the rulings that they can't block the groupings of here's the directors that the company is pushing here, the ones that the activist, if you would push, is this something that, again, any sort of branches all from what semi free was doing, is this a concern on or is it just mainly just fear of companies, but is there a real concern that activists and others who are pushing these agendas could get footholds on some of these large boards buying more than others? There is a real concern and it's going to be on top of sarbanes oxley and you know which the rush through after enron, which I've written about and affected earlier and died Frank, it's going to mean less companies go public in the first place or only go public when they're very big and who loses out from that. You know, mom and pop investor. And again, these agendas are going to be at the expense of the financial well-being of Joe and Jane for four-o-one-ks. It was kind of two sides at the same time. They allowed the SEC allowed fraud and an ESG firm to apparent fraud in ESG firm like FTX to faster and they're having their encouraging all these agendas that harm investor return.
John Berlau Describes Sam Bankman-Fried's Well-Connected Family
"Bikeman free. I mean, this is, let's start with him. And I love your analysis there with a theranos issue which, by the way, I think is we are taping this is getting has been sentenced to prison time and all for what was going on with that. But I think it's an interesting analogy. How did someone of his age and I'm not taking back from age? I got no problem with somebody with great ideas. I don't care what your age is making a lot of money and but how did it go in a special industry such as this? Besides the democratic donor base besides some of the other stuff that they were throwing out a lot of money it places. One, how did he gain the money? I guess the thought that many people have. And then how did it become so quickly marketable in the political world? And then because there's reports that, you know, this issue has, you know, Ukrainian legs back to democratic donors. I mean, there's just all kinds of things going on here. Give us a little in front about him if you can. Right. Well, he is a pretty book smart guy and also smart at making social connections, but there's a saying knowledge doesn't even equal wisdom. But it also certainly helped the fact that he had prominent parents that his name is Sam bankman fried Barbara fried, headed to Silicon Valley pack that gave to democratic donors. And. Also his father, Joseph bankman, helped, according to fortune, draft tax legislation for senator Elizabeth Warren. So, I mean, basically Kevin O'Leary, mister wonderful on Shark Tank said, well, of course I trust him because his parents are compliance attorneys, but something to the effect. I'm paraphrasing what could go wrong. That's like trusting the biker with all the ingredients and never watching because nobody ever would think the biker would put something in there, you know? Exactly. Trust but verify as Ronald Reagan said in everything in politics and in business.

How Emilio Esteves Helped Jon Bon Jovi Get His Oscar Nomination
"Also, close personal friend of Bon Jovi, you were in his music videos, he was in young guns, et cetera that's right. How did that happen? So I was a fan of that song that he wrote called wanted dead or alive, and we listened to it during the first young guns. And Ali sheet is like patient zero. She was friendly with. And me too, from USC theater. She's the she was friends with John and Richie sambora, and she introduced John and I and John says, hey man, you know, I love young guns one. Can I be involved with youngsters? I said, you know, once you come out to New Mexico and we'll throw in cameo, he shows up in the middle of shooting and he says, hey, I wrote a song. I'd love to play it for you. And I said, oh my God, whatever. Sure. Yeah. How good could it be? Can I play it for you now? And he had it written on a piece of lined. Paper and he's sat down and played in the car and it was blazing glory. Wow. And I had the day off. And I said, get in the car. We drove to set. I said, there's the director and producers go in there and play it for them. And he did. And he was nominated for an Oscar. I think he won the Golden Globe for the song. And an entire album was born out of that experience. So yeah, he and I have been friends for a while, and it was I think that was his first solo album, was it?
A Recipe for a Hollywood Fight
"Michael viner was the owner of dove publishing. He had a number of decent books that came out in the 90s, the most famous one was you'll never make love in this town again. And when I was dating Jermaine Jackson's ex-wife, Margaret Maldonado. She was working for him at the time, but for Michael viner. And one day she sneaked me in early copy of this salacious book, and no one had seen it yet, Margaret got the proofs and begged me not to show or tell anyone about it. I said, no, no, I won't. I'm not going to write about it. I just want to read it myself, okay? So I go back to the hotel or wherever I was and start reading this book and the proofs and maybe two years ago, I read a couple of the more filthy chapters on this show. The book contains a bunch of stories written by three prostitutes and one actress about this sexual encounters with a bunch of different Hollywood celebrities. There was a Robin and Liza grier, Linda Hammond, and Alexandra daddy. And inside are all these lurid tales of what these girls discovered while having sex with the likes of Nicholson Warren Beatty, Don Henley, Bruce Willis, Robert Evans, John Claude Van Damme, Mickey Rourke, on and on. And a very, very detailed stories. Whether they're all true or not, I don't know. It's just the horrors point of view. So my jaw was on the floor when I started reading this. A couple of days later, I'm at Evans house for one of his great get togethers. Robert Shapiro, Geraldo Rivera, Jacqueline bessette, Beverly Johnson, Neil sedaka, a lot of luminaries in addition to the dynamic to all of Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty, who are always at Evans house back in the 90s, and now I have all this information inside me bursting out and I don't know that Jack Warren and bob know about this. And then my eyes couldn't believe what I was seeing. The publisher Michael Weiner walks into the party. And he lived a few doors down from heaven, so it kind of made sense, but I know all this information from the book he published and I grabbed Margaret and I go, what the fuck is he doing here? She's like, what's the big deal? I go, he's publishing a book about what a few hookers have to say about a few of the men at this party. But balls on this guy,
Larry Taunton Talks Voter Fraud
"Welcome back, talking to Larry Alex Staunton Larry. We've seen such unprecedented things. The voting fraud. I think because we didn't get the red wave, we might have been hoping for. I think it's a good thing because I think it is forcing more people to realize, wait a minute, this is genuinely rigged. No one believes John fetterman grunted his way to victory. Nobody believes that Carrie Lake lost. Nobody could really honestly believe that Joe Biden won. I mean, it doesn't make sense and you're looking around and you think like something rotten has entered our political life and the folks who don't like pro American figures, whether it's Trump or Carrie Lake or Doug master yano, that they will do literally anything to keep them out of power and that they've simply taken election fraud or whatever it is manipulation to a new level and if we the people don't wake up to this. If we don't go to bat against this stuff, it's over. We have no America. Yeah, well, let me just say something very, very quickly, a little anecdote your listeners might appreciate. What an impressive lady Carrie Lake is. I say that Georgia maloney, the new prime minister of Italy, the populist candidate is the Carrie Lake of Italy. I mean, Carrie Lake is just a powerhouse, but I was with you at Mar-a-Lago and we're sitting, I don't know if you remember this, but we're chatting in the lobby and you look over my shoulder and you say, hey, hey, there's the next governor of Arizona. And I turned and looked and it was Carrie Lake.
Chrissy Teigen Has Eyebrow Transplants—What's Next?
"I know Chrissy Teigen recently posted her face, which was tough to see. It's a close up. Posted her face showing how she got hair plugs in her eyebrows. Did you notice? She went and got a procedure. In between traveling with her husband John and throwing the giant tone deaf Squid Game dress up party the other day. She went to a guy, I love to see her date book. I really went with the shit she does. She went to a guy who fixed the eyebrows that she plucked their shit out of as a teenager and a young model. And since a lot of that hair never grew back, she was sick of always coloring it in, so she had the hair from the back of her head plucked out and got it transplanted into her eyebrows. I didn't know this was done. I wish they would have used their pubic hairs for this to make her look even nuttier than she really is. But there were so many questions and comments to make here guys, but can I just start with this? Hair from the back of one's head keeps growing. Especially with a woman. Whereas eyebrow hair doesn't quite grow at that speed or length. Now, can you imagine getting up close and personal like John on occasion does whenever he's not sleeping over and boys down? And seeing that face that shrunken apple of a face and not only seeing the cheek implants that she had put in, then taken out, but didn't quite take all of them out. Let's be honest. Plus the nose job she copped to having. And the lipo and the full on bonding dentistry that she also copped to having done, can you imagine seeing a few dozen long eyebrow hairs snaking up her forehead? I mean, how Howard use of her?
"johns" Discussed on Software Engineering Daily
"The norms and expectations that have been placed on us slowly and consistently throughout the course of our entire lives through the process of being a socialized creature, being part of civilization. I'm going to get a bit philosophical here, but my worldview is that society or civilization works when you can get enough people to subscribe to enough standardized beliefs. So you get beliefs around religion, around politics, around governments, around education, around civic responsibility around the economy, and then when you have enough people that congeal around those prescribed beliefs, then that's when a large collection of people can generally function. The thing is, though, is that can come often at the direct expense of individuation. The person becoming their own individual self, especially going back to what I mentioned earlier, of when you're a child, the scariest thing in the world is to be alone. And is to be left alone or to be abandoned. It's like when you see a three year old child at the grocery store and they're walking down the aisle and they turn around and they realize that mom with the shopping cart isn't behind them anymore. They immediately jump into panic. Because we're so hard wired for the need for love and connection, especially from the adults in our life, because biologically, we're dependent on them. We have this really long 9 month incubation period of the bun in the oven. But then it takes years afterwards. Before a human can be independently sustainable. And as a result of that biological dependence for survival, we have a really strong psychological root in the need for connection. And so what basically happens is like we're brought into this world with this deep rooted need for connection. But we're also brought into this world as our own unique individual selves. So we have those two fundamental needs, one to be ourselves, to be authentic and the other to be connected. But because that need for connection is so strong and so scary to think of not having, say, the parents in your life are not having the friends or anyone to connect with, that often what a kid does is they suppress their individuality for the benefit of staying connected to others. And that's what we call conformity. And so we conform into these clicks and into these increasingly small tribes, whether it's around fashion or it's around sports or when I was in high school in the 90s, you could see you had the jocks, and then you had the Goths, and then you had the cheerleaders, right? Everyone falls into these groups. And really that's just an expression of people saying, I don't want to be alone, I do want to be myself, but in the past, when I've tried to be myself, sometimes people don't like that. And so I've learned to just stop expressing my individuality. And so that's what I think is really at the core of the career decisions that a lot of folks like myself make going into adulthood is because that fear of walking their own path is that they won't be accepted and loved and welcomed by others. And so I think that's what certainly, in my case, that's what prevented me from listening to my intuition and saying, Andy, like, stop working this hard. You don't have to anymore. You don't have to prove anything to others. You're likeable and lovable as you are, just go and do your own thing and be yourself. I was afraid of that for a really long time. And it wasn't until I really unpacked at a deeper psychological level, the root and the origin of why I felt that way where then I had the opportunity to sort of break free of that and move on and then start to walk my own path and do my own thing. I think you touched on something. I think it's really important to where we are in the work world today where you talked about the three year old child that the fear of being alone and we live in a world now where because of the pandemic more and more people are working from home and that creates a lot of isolation for people. Even in my own life, probably the time I struggled the most with depression was during my first couple of years of university, I had moved away from my home at 17 and I lived off campus and I basically cut off all ties to friends that had in high school because I kind of felt like I was moving on and I didn't talk to anyone at university and I went to class and I basically went home and that was about it so that total isolation from any connection to friends and even to family caused a lot of personal problems and it's a hard spiral to get out of. So for someone feeling isolated, what advice would you give them to help stay connected or get to connected with people outside of the pure sort of work relationships that we have that exist through platforms like Zoom today? Yeah, and even in office the work relationships aren't enough to meet the connection needs of most people and certainly over Zoom. I experienced that too. And if I was still working at a startup, I would definitely be the sort of person that would be in the office at least three days a week just so I could have more human contact. The most common option, though, is to turn to the forms of enabling human connection that tend to commonly exist within society. So for example, as kids, it's easier because these institutions of education that bring us together on a daily basis. And yeah, these institutions of sports that bring us together. And then you get into college and sort of the same thing. And then into professional life, you still have the institution of work that brings us together, but it's not the same. You know, you're not doing recess. You're not sitting in class at the same kids building really long relationships over a 12 year period. And so the short answer is especially as you move into call it your late 20s and your 30s and beyond. The normal methods through which societal institutions could provide means through which we can meet our connection needs. Those go out the window. And there's fewer of them. Now you can ask the question and say, well, what other forms of these natural groups or societal connections? What are the forms take place? You can join adult sports that certainly one of them, that's why people like to go to SoulCycle or the gym or they like to fall into routines because often those routines involve familiar faces. Whenever I do work, I don't like to work from home now, unless it's a podcast interview, I'll do that at home, but otherwise I go to a local coffee shop, simply because I want to be around others. And I have gone there frequently enough to where it's a bunch of familiar faces. So I'd say that that's one channel to exhaust. The other, of course, is start your own family. There's no better form of connection than to build your own beautiful family. And that can be fur babies in addition to non fur babies.

"Then why do I feel so terrible? And so I had to reconcile that disconnect. And that's largely what I was doing through therapy and other forms of work that I've done. It's just trying to understand, why is it that I feel so terrible on the inside, despite what's going on in my life on the outside. So that's the connection. It's nothing to do with the specific companies, the stress doesn't help. But it was really my association with achievement and a sense of self worth that I needed to unpack and to resolve. And was this something when you were working for this company is at least initially or maybe throughout the entire time that you were actively trying to hide from the people you reported to? I wasn't actively trying to hide it, but I certainly didn't feel comfortable sharing it with anyone. Mental health as a whole carries a lot of stigma. You know, especially when you're still at the early stages of doing the inner engineering work to heal and to feel better, it's something that you mostly keep between you and your therapist. And even at that point, it's often the case that at the beginning of the therapeutic process, most people still don't feel comfortable fully admitting how they're feeling or the things they've done that make them feel guilt or shameful. And it takes a while for somebody to warm up even to their therapist to be open enough and transparent enough such that that therapist can really, really dive in and help out. So yeah, it's hardly anyone, including within my family, was aware of the work that I was doing. But I decided, you know, a year and a half ago really where I said, okay, it's time to make a change with that. Yeah, and I think my father was a psychologist he's retired now, but one of the things that he said when I was a kid that always stuck with me was that for whatever reason, the public perception, when it comes to treating the brain, people tend to get more hung up on that than treating some other organ with the body like the heart or the lungs. And even culturally, I think we tend to talk about people who might have mental health issues as quite a negative thing like he's cracking up mental breakdown, lost his mind. And there's really this historical stigma, it seems between around mental health versus something like a physical health issue. Do you think that this is something that is starting to change? It is, but very, very slowly. And I suspect, you know, it's going to take a few more decades before you could say that en masse the American population, for example, begins to think less negatively and certainly applies less stigma such that they'll seek help themselves. But we're still in the first inning of the ball game, in my opinion. Not only in terms of the existence of stigma around the subject, but also in terms of our understanding of the complexities of the human mind and how exactly to heal from psychiatric diseases. And you mentioned that it was only like a year and a half ago that you started to open up about some of the work that you've been doing on yourself all this time to even your family. And then earlier this year in March, you started to write about mental health and some of the things that you've gone through. So what motivated you to actually start writing about your personal journey with mental health? I like this question a lot because there's not one single event. It's more about a fundamental shift in values and what my goals and objectives were, but also how I perceive the world. And what I mean by that is it's my belief or theory that when a child comes into the world, a child is deeply in touch with its feelings and emotions. And sort of the bodily sensations that we might generally categorize as our intuition, these feelings of intuition. But kids don't have the brain development and the combination of the creation of a system of language yet. To be able to express those complex feelings and emotions that exist in the body in a clear way. And that's why a kid cries everything. Hungry, it cries. It needs a new diaper. It cries. It doesn't like who it's being held by. They're very perceptive, very in touch with what their needs are. And it's responding intuitively. And then through the process of getting older and socialization of life and becoming more ingrained into what we just generally refer to as civilization. We sort of move slowly out of this intuitive emotions sort of feeling based approach to the world. And then we become more intellectual. We start operating at the level of the intellect. And then we're using our brain for everything, including making decisions that should be made at the level of intuition or emotion. So it's like somebody could be working at a job and thinking like, this job sucks. And every part of their being is saying, this career is not for you. And then what do we do? We write a pros and cons list down, as if that's going to be the answer. It's like, no, just listen to yourself. Get back in touch with that innate intuition you have, because something inside of your being is telling you that this isn't you. And so so much of this process of at least for me of transitioning away from the professional work that I was doing. And then discovering this new work that I'm doing was a process of me unwinding that pattern of at first being very in touch with my intuitions and emotions as a child and then completely losing touch with that part of my intelligence. Operating in the intellectual space the entire time trying to make rational decisions, making decisions around which career is going to make more money, which title has more esteem, which startups going to be more successful. And instead saying, I'm not going to make a decision from that perspective. I'm going to make a decision based on what I feel. What I feel is most aligned with what is right for me. And so to get directly to your question, the way in which I arose

"That you've had you probably get asked this. Allot by your peers inside of bloomberg. What do you tell them. A lifelong process. Scott i mean this is this is a journey and we we spoke about this before is it doesn't stop here and you and i were kind of agreed to this point. There is no such thing as a ten in our life. Yes have i quote unquote hit the ceiling in bloomberg of being number one. Yeah that's the top from a an individual contributor standpoint. That i can hit yes but i mean it's it's a lifelong process where every volving and so. That's something i mean. I've got folks who have been with bloomberg for sixteen twenty plus years that are like constan. What are you doing like what was working back then obviously does not work now. And what's working right now will not work tomorrow. And that's what i was saying. Before i mean at that tony robbins quote again is like what we've always done. Well i mean if we do the same things that we've always done we'll get what we've always got so it's continue to learn. Continue to develop continue to ask these questions. And that's why it's so important that that people listen to the doers and challenge themselves and try new things that is just so crucial in instrumental in life in personal professional development. Whatever you wanna look at it as. Yeah i love. The you've listened to this show as as much as you have. So when i ask you what would you want to know of other top performers in other organizations that. I don't already somehow usually get to in the line of questioning. That i have for the show i love. I love how you ask about rituals in you ask about routines because i think that is very personal very important to each individual and in how they show up but even digging deeper and and. I think obviously were doing that here. Today is the conversation of self development of like okay. Well what does development what does growth mean to you. I think it's very interesting scott to speak with other high performing individuals. I mean i mentioned a few people that i'm very close with that. Have been on your calls. Ian koniak doin brown camille clemens all of these amazing individuals but getting curious in understanding. Well what is development. What is growth. Like how do these things show up in your life not only from a professional perspective but also from a personal perspective as well and i think the to bleed in to one another so. It's understanding at self-awareness leads to self development. But i think i mean getting more curious in and more diving deeper into those would be would be pretty cool. So let's come up with as much as we can sort of generic one-size-fits-all if somebody's like you know what you're right. I need to develop a self development program for myself. How should they think about that. How would they lay out a curriculum for themselves. If you were to develop their self awareness develop themselves a really does start with questions and getting curious to understand things like where are you right now. Scott and you can use scales you can use wherever and i mean where are you right now and we could ask this in different mediums and is in your happiness in life in your fulfilment in life in your purpose in life in your desire to do better. I mean give those numbers understand where you are right now and where are you going but also then asking the question. What would it be like if you shift from a say. You're at a five. What would it like to take that from a five to a six and get curious on that. Have them explain. Well if scott's at a five and then he's out of six. How does the six scott. How does he act. How does he show up for himself. His family his business his podcast..

One hundred percent is like yeah. That's that's about halfway. we're well. We're well on our way. I'm curious about in your quest to be the best. Constantine on sort of zero to one hundred percent scale. Because i won't let you over one hundred percent. Like how far do you think you are a tier like full potential. Your full capability. That's such a good question. And i know you actually. This is one of the areas that you're talking about with with steven one of your your more recent podcast to is like you're seen yourself as a master so i look at this. I'm like a master is one who never sees himself or herself as a master this to me scott is a life long journey i will never achieve my fullest potential. If you will. I remember when i joined one of my first mastermind organizations in this is really what got me into that. Self-development pieces the types of questions. They asked me scott their leg while constantine on a scale of one to ten where are you. In in your purpose or your fulfillment or your happiness in life and those are questions that i had never been asked before so from that point. I was like holy shit. Like there's there is more to this. I need to really dig deeper. And so that was something i was just awoken too. So when you're asking hey will. Where are you constantine. I mean. Have i done well in have delivered on a lot of my purpose in my potential. Hell yeah i mean if i'm at like an eight i will never be at a ten. I will tell you this for one hundred percent scott. I will never be at attended. That something where i always have to be chasing. I always have to be developing being better. There's something that we can always be learning. So that's that that carrot. That's always hanging in front of you. That keeps me going harder and going further than than anyone else. Yeah yeah you know. it's funny. I put myself in a very similar number right. It's like there is no ten. There's always better. There's always something to be able to improve and refine and do something better one of the things that i've been actively working to improve. Is my proposal game propose. A fi has helped me see that this is an area. I can make some serious improvements. And if you'll click over to top one dot fm forward slash propose affi- you can get their annual state.
