"You also talked about how one of the other routes that's kind of popping it more in terms of Miss less artist compensation, But just more livelihood is grant making. Can you talk a little bit about that? Yeah, absolutely. I think for artists working in genres like jazz the You know how a naughty insp but maybe not as commercial. There are lots of foundations like San Jose Jazz, the very grants for things like that. And then also artists who make work with a social purpose who are really engaged with social justice themes. I think they're law of foundations like Serena and Foundation, for example of that fund work like that. And then also, I wanted to plug subscriptions. This is like patron and sub stack. I know A lot of artists, especially smaller artists are directing their audiences over there where people can actually signed up to pay a certain amount of month a month to support that, Curtis And Cody Fitzgerald. So what are your next steps? If Spotify doesn't respond to the union's demands thing, kind of Where is this all headed in your eyes? No. This is just the first step in a long line of steps. You can take toe start building power and bring people onboard. Obviously, you know the one cent per stream demand just sounds so obvious. People because it is insane that we aren't even making that per stream and I think it's really bringing a lot of people into this conversation on building power by bringing people into that conversation, you know? Eyes was mentioned earlier in the program. There is in the UK on in investigation in the House of Commons into streaming services in general, and would be awesome to see something like that happen in the United States as well and I think hopefully that's Another place we're headed, but you know, for now we've seen them respond to our demands. Already. With the loud and clear website they put out which Was supposed to be very transparent. Website but really didn't provide very much transparency and I think you know we're just trying to build power and work towards towards a better future. So hopefully as we continue to bring more musicians into this conversation, it becomes a bigger conversation in the United States and at least to something bigger. And this listener asked. I've seen friends play a musician song on repeat for hours with their computer on mute to give support to that musician. Is that viable or impactful in any real way justifying Chetty. That's really sweet. And you know, I've done that for friends, too, And I know friends who've done that for me. And I think that that again just speaks Tonto. How much listeners are down to support artists. I think that that's awesome. But I do think that we need the structural change. Ultimately, you know, we need we need models that put more money in artist pockets that support music workers as a collective work force. Oh, and and I love that, though, And I think all the listeners who do things like that these hacks that get artists, more money and more, uh, bumps on the algorithms, But, yeah, I think ultimately we need We need structural change. And Greg Rights. As a musician, I find the idea of the unionization of art. A direct path to its commoditization aren't reduced to a basic objective value is no longer our nor is its creator and artist. Or merely an interchangeable calling in a factory. There's no universal value and art and there shouldn't be Look, that comment stand and we had another comment who said won't blocked commentaries. It won't Blockchain crypto currency actually help musicians by paying them directly. I know we kind of touched on this earlier. Just him. I'm curious. If you had any thoughts and kind of looking at where the digital music industry is headed in these next few years, you think Yeah, You know, I think that it's kind of funny because I guess that band camp we've been around for a while now, and it doesn't take crypto currency or and FTS to support artist directly. You can You could do that on band camp with one of the better revenue shares around where you know, we really only make money. When artists make a lot more money. We take 10 to 15% of sales. And I think is just being also noted. You know, you can always just purchased directly from the artist. It's not that hard to do at the end of the day and I think any consumer who's sitting there sitting or earn any fan who's out there, hitting repeat on the play could direct that energy Justus well towards again damming. The artists are finding their band camp and trying to support them directly, You know, with crypto currencies. I think there's just a lot of speculation around there. There's also a lot of environmental concerns. Around the the the actual energy costs of doing any sort of transaction, which has been spoken about a lot. So I have some hesitations around could be a currency and LFTs in general, particularly when there's already so many great ways to directly support artists. It's really just a matter of You know, uh, getting out of the algorithmic playlists and going in engaging with the artist who make the music that you love. And briefly, Josephine shed. It's a closing thought and your hopes for where the music music industry goes from here. Um, so many places, but I would love to see more music workers united forming a united front. Um, joining either our union are forming their own unions were definitely in solidarity with other union music unions, more artists ownership earlier, we mentioned some platform like Patriot model platforms and I want to shadow sampled, which is a Patriot model platform that is also a worker co up so people who create Profiles. There can also be an owner of worker owner and I think artists ownership is a big part of our future. Right. Well, thank you.

"Before record sales were driving a lot. Have your money. I mean, at the end of the day, if you think about it, you as an artist spend years working on a record and then it goes on Spotify and you see You know you spend you know tent, maybe like thousands of dollars. Also working on that record. And you're not getting that revenue back. Where is before that was part of your revenue Because that is what most people are listening to. It's not really all you're live shows, which is where all the money is at this point. It is also supposed to be your recorded music that people are consuming and is the reason people are coming to your elections. All this listener, Mariana Rights. I'm very happy. I found Band camp several years ago. I love being able to support my favorite artists that would be considered quote unquote mid level. Yet I have mostly left digital inflate in favor of vinyl in order to gain control over how I buy listen and store music. I would like to know how artists prefer fans to procure their music. Josephine Shetty. What's your preference? It's a great question, and I feel like people asked this a lot and and I love that because it's just it's so comforting to know that listeners really care and think about how they engage with our work. But I think buying directly from the artist is great like if you can Email rdm or get it from the artist shop. That's great. I love band Camp Fridays. When Josh was talking about that I was thinking about how I've sometimes made more money from band Camp Fridays. Then I even do in a month of all my screaming revenue combined, and I was even just looking at it like I, for one of my GPS is $5 and I'm back on Friday. I get 4 70 for that which is just the total minus the papal processing it would take over 1000. Streams for me to make that money that I got from just a single purchase on band camp Friday, so things like that are really helpful Buying directly from people. It's really helpful. Cody. Do you want to chime in with your thoughts? Yeah, I think I totally agree, Justin. I mean, it doesn't really matter the medium. Whatever we're selling, if you want to buy it, I think you should buy it. Yeah. We have Cody Fitzgerald and Josephine Sherry, both musicians and co founders of the Union of Musicians and Allied Workers were also with Josh Kim, CEO of Band Camp and Nasty Albino Scapa, associate editor at KQED Arts. Steven writes. Are you Spotify to strain artist discovered through radio deuce articles and friend recommendations. When I like a good number of songs on an album, I buy the CD on Amazon, mainly as a way of supporting the musicians how much of my purchase actually goes back to the artist? Judge Kim. I'm actually gonna toss this to you just out of curiosity in terms of some of the competition that Amazon can present as this larger, you know, catch all marketplace and how band camp is kind of still building its community and kind of keeping its own niche lane. Right. You know, that's a great question, and I can't really speak Tonto. What the compensation ends up being from the right Amazon. I think it really depends, Of course, whether it's on a label or whether what service on Amazon they're using, But I congest for sure you're probably going to be paying Thea artist more than if you just dream them so I would definitely recommend that I would very much, though, Recommend if you can find them on Vancamp purchasing their CD or vinyl there, because I do know that being camps share of sales. Our revenue sharing is the lowest relative to any other platform, and I think you know this goes Tonto kind of something we were speaking about earlier. Which is that I think will, with Spotify being positioning yourself more as an audio company. When you look at all of the other rather than a music company. When you look at a lot of the other players out there, whether it's Amazon or Apple or Google, I think one thing that really differentiates being campus. We are really a music company. Only, you know, we're not this large platform that wants to treat music as just another piece of content in a large suite of services and other content, whether it's podcast or in Amazon's case, toilet paper or toothbrushes or anything like that, you know, at band camp, we're just all about music, and so Everything that we do is oriented around making sure that music as you know the important part of the culture that it is continues to flourish, and so You know, we think that's really are big differentiator is when you come to band camp. You are in the world of music 100% and we tried to align the business model to that as well to ensure that Artists are fairly compensated. And so you know, Amazons Amazons. Great. Sometimes I still buy vinyl records from Amazon as well on D. I think it's really It's great that they're still supporting that. But at the end of the day We? We think that there's really a benefit on our and both for fans, artists and our own business. To be 100% focused on music treat music, as are not content. Not treated as just another piece of content within, you know, a larger ecosystem of other types of commerce. All right. Well, let's go to another collar Cheryl and Elsa Braun say you're on Thanks for having me And thanks for this great program. My music is currently going Spotify, Pandora and Amazon, etcetera. Um I have a little historical point of view because my first recording I made in the mid eighties on LP's. So, um I started with LPs and CDs and all the way up Um, And what I can tell you about in general with this conversation is a question. We need to keep asking, And I'm really hopeful Hearing what The person is saying about Vancamp because in my experience I recorded for major labels like men, such Dorado and joy to Harmonia Monday, and it was just it was just a constant story of being ripped off. Both in terms of the amount of royalties you're given or not giving or mechanical licensing fees that you're, you know, denied and etcetera, so this has been going on for a long time. Um, I don't wanna get a shout out to a local Bay area company called Magnitude. More music has been on magnitude for many years. Um They really do support their artists there. Their motto. We're not evil, and I can't say another thing that has been possible for me is having my music license. So, for instance, video game played license one of my pieces, and it blew up on YouTube and Had actually generated way more money than royalties. Lightning thing is possible. Anyway. My career, the other person said, I mostly make a living from teaching. Well, thank you for sharing your experience with Cheryl. And yes, that sounds like that is a going threat of musicians. Also, it's nice to hear that there's Of dual jobs, education and doing music. Education is is high up there on the list. This right this listener, Curtis rights justice, uber and lift our models from making money for investors and not driver. Streaming music is a model from making money for investors and not for musicians. The reality is that musicians have been woefully underrepresented financially throughout the history of the music industry is Cheryl just kind of China in the pie for entertainment revenues is huge musicians deserve a much larger Portion, not Stephen of sky..

"You said, you know, if fans feel like they're actually supporting artists, they'll do it. They actually love music, right? I mean, that's why their music fans and I think that's a key thing here. And so on. Every other day, we've had over $200 million in the past 12 months. Of fans paying artist directly, and it's really inspiring to see And just for you find no one speaking with our son, producer Polly striker. You made a distinction between Spotify in band camp rolls in the industry. But I thought was really interesting is that Spotify is replacing radio and band camp is really focused on music and just talk briefly. More about that distinction. Yeah, Totally. You know, I think as I think important distinction years Yeah, you know, Spotify really seems to care primarily about The casual listener, and they really want to become radio. Andre Dono has really worked well only for big artists in the past. And so I think it's no surprise that Current model still really only works for the biggest artists. But as Cody said, even then, I don't know if it's the best deal on the table, but it's certainly a better deal for the big artists in the smaller artists. And you know what they really want is for a fan to trust the platform and just press play, put their phone back in their pocket. Let an algorithm do their job on Davey. It's a slightly more diverse number of songs in the top 40 on the radio. But not that Much, much more diverse, and certainly the compensation model is not so different. And I think, Spotify his recent movement into podcasts and positioning themselves as an audio company. Really shows how how they're really thinking about themselves as radio, you know, with radio, there's FM, and there's a M. And now they're going after a m just as much as they're going after the music radio is, you know we saw with this big Joe Rogan deal where Spotify somehow came up with $100 million Tonto. Get exclusive content to who I might consider to be a questionable questionable person. And you know, band Camp is really actually focused on artists. And I think that's a big difference. The casual listener versus the artist and I think by focusing on the artists were also focusing on the fans who care about the artists and giving a channel for the artists and fans to connect directly. And again, I think when fans you know, fans love music. They actually really love and love the artist that they make that music. And when you give them a chance, they'll support those artists and be very happy. Tolo paid good money S O. As Nastya said. I think if Any service creates that kind of connection. I think fans actually want Tolo put money in darkness, pockets and again. I think bank camps success over the past 10 plus years and in particular on Vancamp Fridays, where we've really celebrated theatrics of supporting artists every month for the past year. I just really shows give fans a chance to support artists and they'll do it. I think the challenge, of course with streaming services is Their lack of transparency around compensation. And the fact that you know, grill music fan is not that enthusiastic about making Spotify richer there, but they would be enthusiastic about making artists you know, have a fair compensation. That's Josh Kid, CEO of Band Camp. We're also talking with Nazi of I know ska, associate editor at KQED Arts Cody Fitzgerald, the co founder of the Union of Musicians and Allied Workers, Josephine Shetty, also with the union. Both are musicians themselves, and we're talking about the streaming industry and how to make money in the age of streaming. Well, let's go to a caller Matthew in San Francisco, Matthew, you're on. Hi. Um I'm a music teacher, and, uh, Composer and musician as well. I have Ah Spotify account where I both listen and I'm an artist, and I wanted Tonto Talk about a book by Jock Atoll Ye called Noise the political economy of music. His last name is spelled a t t A l I. I'm wondering if anybody has read it. And if not, how come it's Ah, it's a fantastic book. Thanks, Matthews. Anybody We heard the book or have a comment with that. No. All right. Well, thank you, Matthew for for putting it on the radar for our listeners in our panel. And I also wanted Tioga ring in another voice. I spoke with the area hip hop artists. Devon Thompson, who's artist. Name is do that about how he makes money as an independent artist and how he's looking at the industry right now. Do make money from my music. But specifically the way that I make money for my music is teaching people how to make music and how to craft their voice. From what I understand from streaming. It's just pay to play. But if you don't have an organic Song or wait. The way to create organic buzz around your song is to get placed onto a Spotify playlist and then have your song and discovered But there are services to where they will place it and you can be in contact. You know what I mean? So The music industry is evolved into a digital until much more digital. Correspondence, especially since Shelter in place and shows a shutdown. There's other ideas also with by crypto currency and different ways to incorporate your music, along with that platform, which and honestly, I don't fully understand, but No that that folks are looking into it, and it's looking like that's gonna be the next step and bringing value back to the actual music. So Cody has that mentions crypto currency her. There been any conversations amongst the union artists around that I know in Ft's non fungible tokens, and this whole new frontier might bring Um, has that been a conversation that's bubbled up it all and trying to figure out this puzzle of making a living with as a musician. Yeah. I mean, we've talked about entities. I mean, I think honestly. Um Our feeling is that we're not sure that ah, a new technology coming into the game is going to be the thing that saves the music industry. I think at the end of the day Collective action, you know, from the bottom up building resource is for musicians building a united front to actually like Take on the issues of the music industry as collective workers and making people see musicians as workers is really What we have to go for. E think and of teas are starting to make some really big artists. A lot of money, um, who already have fan bases that are enormous. And for people who are willing to spend like a million dollars on a on a random crypto going, But I don't know if it's going to be the future. I mean, only. I mean, asked me in five years and maybe it will be, but I really know And Josephine dead and also brought up the the playlist situation in terms of visibility, and I know that some Spotify kind of advertising that sometimes as an exchange is a way to like, Get visibility. Can you talk about that dynamics? I believe your songs have made it to a playlist was Spotify before we just have about a minute before the break. Sure, Yeah, My songs have been featured on some editorial playlists, and they definitely drew a temporary surge of listeners and streams to my profile on Spotify but again Kind of like Cody saying, without real structural change. These things like playlists really just look like treats that Spotify is throwing at smaller artists. And I think that that kind of feeds like the individual is, um and the music industry like this kind of sense of excess. Nationalism that people striving for stardom feel like I've been chosen, you know, to be on this playlist. Now I'm gonna skyrocket to fame. But for me, I see artists as workers and I see so much power in our collective solidarity and collective action. So again, I think without structural change, and without a true collectivization of Artist workers. Those things just don't really matter. We're talking about musicians, the streaming industry and how to make money with my guess. Josephine Shetty, co founder of the Union of Musicians and Allied Workers and Middle school music teacher and artist herself goes by cocaine orgasm.

"To a streaming service and have questions or thoughts about the services or about artists fighting for better pay? Give us a call at 8667336786. That's 8667336786. You can also get in touch on Twitter and Facebook. We're at KQED form or email your questions to forum at kqed dot Borg. And joining me now is not Steve Buenos Kaya, associate editor for KQED Arts, who wrote about last month's protest action at Spotify. Hey, Nastya. Arianna. Thanks for having me here. Yeah, thanks for for writing your piece. Also. I'm putting this on my radar. So let's zoom out a bit now and and tell us about how the mainstream music industry more broadly is even is even thinking about the business of music and, more importantly about artists these days. Right, so I think Come on, because dreaming is not profitable it all the music industry has kind of shifted into this model where major labels are treating their artists more as content creators. Like. For example, take talk is a huge driver, popularity and first song to go viral on their only needs to be catchy, really be second. So that kind of dis incentivizes super labor intensive music with like an orchestra section and Really complicated production. And because ultimately, these labels are trained to drive listeners to the spaces. Where are this actually do make money, which a lot of the time is merged Sales. Also, they're brokering brand endorsements. Like for example, Meghan, the Stallion on Cardi B had fashion over lines. Justin Bieber has a clothing line and And even on the indie level, a lot of local artists were successful, like the 40, for example, has a liquor company and he is an investor and Lucia restaurant, so I think increasingly, artists are of a certain level are kind of taking the money they make for music and investing it until all these other income streams Got it. And can you tell us just a little bit about the contracts dreaming companies have with record companies and some of that relationship and why that's become such an issue for For the union and others. Yeah, I think a lot of the contacts streaming companies have with what? Um, what record labels are really shouted and mystery And I think that's actually you want campaign, So I'd love to hear Also what Cody in Josephine have to say about that, but basically it's totally unknown. How a lot of major label artists get featured prominently in. The Curia did parts of the platform like when you log on to Spotify, and it tells you what your albums listen to, or something's popular playlists. And I think that a lot of these artists are asking for more transparency about how those decisions are made. Well, this listener, Arthur writes. Why did the artists feel that Spotify should be responsible for providing a living wage when artists have multiple ways of making income? The company's mission isn't to provide an income that supports the desired lifestyle of artists. It's to spread music around the world. Josephine, Do you have a response to Arthur's note? Yeah, I think that it Z I think that what we want is a fair pay out. It's not necessarily like Everyone's going to make an income, just stuff of streaming. But right now we don't have a fair payout and affair. Payout would set a lot of artists up with a more livable wage. So I think that You know, we deserve a fair pay. Just like any other gig worker that has a sort of constellation of income sources would deserve fair pay from each and every one of them. And nasty in your article. You cited this recent U U K survey. And it found something interesting about audiences and what they're willing to pay for streaming. Can you tell us about that? Yeah, There's a similar campaign to what you most doing in the UK, and they pulled music fans who and over half of them said that they would pay more per month for a streaming service if they knew that money was going directly to artists. And I think it also kind of really. It's here to the popularity of Band Camp Fridays, for example, where every Friday during the pandemic band camp has made it known that they're waving their share of revenue and all the money from albums, people purchase on the form, go directly to the artist. And I see that lighting up on social media on the first Friday of every month, and it just really shows that there's an interest for people to be conscious consumers and support the artist they care about, especially local and independent artists. Well, speaking of band camp, I'd like to bring in Josh Kim into the conversation. Now. Josh Kim is the CEO of Band camp in online record store and music community where fans directly support artist just Kim. Welcome to form. Thanks so much for having me So tell us about how band camp which launched actually, before streaming was even a thing fits in today's online music ecosystem. And how do you make money? Yes. So first off. I just want to say, you know, uh, it's really great to have this conversation. I think it's super important for artists to be fairly compensated for their work on banks to everyone here for all their efforts on that front, um You know, Band camp is Aziz, You said. We're online record store in music community, and that's been around for 10 plus years, and it's really a company that's been built around the mission of supporting artists. And the way that band camp has found is the best way for Artist to get support. Is to directly engage with their fans on It's actually really, really simple and I think that's a key thing here. One of the things we focus a lot on it, being camp is making sure that compensation for artists is both fair and also transparent. And S O You know, an artist can use bank can put their music up. They can sell digital music. Or they can sell physical music or other merged the vinyls cassettes, CDs or T shirts and their fans can buy them and the money goes to the artist's 83%, on average per sale. And Percent of the total sale value, and it goes to the artists and 24 to 48 hours on. Especially his artists of needed more support. Once the pandemic really hit on by touring revenue dried up, we're able to put the other bank and Fridays, which has been a day every month where we waive that our share of the revenues so all the proceeds go to artists. And over the course of now, 12 band Camp Fridays. We just had our 12th one last Friday, actually. Um Just on those 12 days. Fans have paid artist $50 million, which is really incredible when when I stop and think about it, And what's great is that even on every other day, fans are still using being camp to pay artists because I think it is..

"Com slash sudden ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire. Guys through my youtube channel we have a segment where listeners can send in questions so I want to get into some of those now. Hey. Is Clear from Switzerland I. Just saw you Vita about jone-jones moving up to heavyweight and the fact that he will probably do so if he's granted a highly However, I was wondering. What do you do if in Ghana wins the rematch against deep and it's supposed to be very competitive fight I think you would have to grand steep the best headway of all times the thrilled you mentioned you. If. So what do you do with Jone-jones? Stan? Do you just let him wait or do you try to find another solution for him? What's your opinion on death? Thanks very much in love your podcast by way. I hear what you're saying most times that answer would be a hard now whether he got it or not would St Bay. Be Given a rematch if he lost greatest heavyweight of all time, would he be given a rematch if he lost Most whether that happens or not. We could at least agree in most times should he be given offered a rematch we can agree that. Yes. We seen in the past where it doesn't necessarily work out that way but we've also seen that we've all thought the correct way to handle it just out of respect would have been. Yes. Let me tell you why this one's different. And you're right. You are. We're trying to project the future of what would be a bigger fight. steeping loses to Engano is there any scenario that match plays wait a second? We gotta do we have to do that one again stop everything. Or do you bring in fresh blood and parody get John Jones emerged in that division whatever happens between Jones, it ain't Gano Bob's your uncle and you bring st pay right back in. I think that that would be. Appropriate way to laid out. It's very hard for me to imagine anything's going to happen with steep a- and Gano part too. I mean I can imagine many ways that Ghana wins and. More more ways that steep a wins. Set that aside, it's very hard for me to imagine something. So controversial compelling and dynamic that that gets ran back and John Jones's introduction into the heavyweight division. Gets delayed. Particularly when you do understand that we are in large part saying the same thing. which is you are arguing that steep a on a law should be brought back in and allowed to fight for his championship I am supporting you on that. I am just offering a caveat. The performance debate comes in. Yes. I agree with you. Next match will be for the heavyweight title. I am just saying for you I believe. That it would be Jones versus and gone. Oh, now I don't think we're going to be in this position so you and I are probably never going to be able to settle this dispute. But I would like you to know that I do appreciate the question I understand where it's coming from and I do think if you listen to me, I'm saying the same thing you're saying we are only arguing on order. H This is Josh Kim from Portland Oregon and I have a question for you I've been here a lot of stories. And rumors of our Conor McGregor in the sex allegation just wanted to know if you knew what the real story was and just Kinda like the details of if any of this actually true love to hear from you. Big Fan. Thanks for everything you do by. Oh. There's a lot of moving parts there. I've got to tell you. Let's start with this. Let's let's back up before we start to that I. Am I inclined to say I know nothing heart-stopping move on there's some things. Don't get involved with. Share. This with you though, many people keep asking me. I don't know damn thing about it. I know what I read and I thought well, this is a confusing one. We kind of got to follow corner all week. Right? He was out on a yacht was doing something he got hit by Sada because remember this made headlines Osada came in and tested and found him on his body was Dr something something along these lines and he did the test. Documented and then who Sada documented it. So we kind of were along the ride with connor a week. His family was there which I believe was also as extended family I believe his mother and father in addition to a fiance and the children. Could have been the wife's mom and damage is like a big trip. He had his people with him to make believe there's any scenario where connor. On that trip was out of eyesight is a tough one because. He also has security of where he goes everywhere. He goes many people don't know how the security work so. There's there's two ways to do security and it's largely based around who you are, what kind of a detail that you're putting on. Okay. If, the president, by example, is to go somewhere and I offer that example, because you've all seen it on your TV million times and it's no secret he's got the secret service around but they also want to be known they want to be a presence they want to be seen that is part of the defense. Best General never fires a shot just aligns his troops, makes the other side back down as part of the detail you want these guys to be seen. That is why they all look alike because why they have the sunglasses and they have the they want people to have a mystique a fear about them. Okay fine. Here's what you don't know. When you already different level and connor is at this level where man wherever? I. Go there you know I'm a target of something. But I would like to blend in I would like to be one of the guys that can go have a seat at the table by himself in order a Nacho and take a look at the game. I'm smarter than to just do that I know but that's what I'd like to do. So now there's another level of security where your team. Will be at different tables acting as though they're two guys doing the same thing. They're dressed in regular clothes. They don't have the sunglasses they don't have the earpieces they don't have the fancy suits. I'm offered for you right now it would be a tremendous I mean I'd really be surprised if conor McGregor was somewhere without any security detail that is watching him at all times whether you saw them or not, and I only tell you that because whatever is going on, there will be witnesses to. Whatever side this thing falls onto make believe that this wasn't seen in re seen. would be.

"So. . Much of the discourse attack online education is often posed any stark terms. . Much of the discussion seems to be on the education was abject failure in the spring. . Now, , kids are doomed to lose another year if we don't go back and person so I think what I'd like to post the group is what are some of the most common misconceptions you see in the discourse around online education? ? Well first of all, , we didn't really have online education in the spring, , right? ? That wasn't anything that any of us who've been in online education for a long time would recognize his minded Asian. . So I think we I have to completely move away from. . Making any conclusions about online education from this emergency pivot to learning to cove it? ? Right in and out argued that we should also make sure that we aren't just judging the concept of online education by what we see today. . There's so much potential for further innovation around the platform around the median that I. . Think we just don't see. . We already seen other countries around the world. . I think one common misconception is more of a conflicting of two things. . One is the medium by which education happens is it online or in person or some mix of the two, , and in the pedagogical approach lecture base is a discussion based. . How much of it is students facing? ? What is the size of the class? ? What in taught in what way I think what you see for most of the brief history online education is the classes that are online tend to be a one type that is often quite different than lacey, , Burson until people say online education, , they often have this idea. . Maybe it's superstar lecturing. . Broadcast all over the web or it's a for profit college that people perceive as being predatory on some types of students or whatever. . But there's nothing that is intrinsic about online. It . makes it better worse at its core online is a mode of delivery for education that has tremendous potential to reach people that couldn't be reached with person education models with far better curriculum. . Than They could've afforded potentially potentially although I don't think that's a guarantee I think we should get into that I. . think there's a question of whether it gives the education can be better and under what conditions is true that you see a lot of education innovators in the online space but a lot of what they're doing could just as easily be done in. . Earth. . What I would like to hear his more discussion of what should education look like, , and then we decide whether it's easiest best to deliver it online versus in person rather than debating about online merson person only later talking about or actually teaching at Howard. . I agree that. . One of the challenges we have when we talk about all this definitions. . People often talk about online education when they're talking about a lot of different things and very different things and I think to that point some people are thinking of this as strictly k. through twelve k. through college and reality. . You can also clump in things like masterclass things like lifelong learning things like worker training things like extra curricular classes have been already online while before cove it. . So one of the confusion too often here is to conflate online education at scale, , which kind of started with nukes and now have moved onto to what? ? Does what addicts does with what's been going on with online education. . Now, , for a couple of decades, , which it looks very different than that, , which is about very small classes. . Of active learning lots of engagement between students and faculty a lot of work with instructional designers they happen to be in the same medium. . They happened to be education that done with technology, , but they're completely different things. . Do you mention the precedent of mooks which is massive online courses? ? So those have been hyped for a decade or so and have had limited success in disrupting education it's pretty commonly agreed. . So what has changed? ? Why do you see this newfound optimism? ? Now? ? What specifically are we seeing that we haven't seen in the past? ? I? ? Think you judge most historically it's done really targeted for college students and Post College. . Graduates. . And I think the effectiveness of books varies dramatically based off the age group and the kind of content you're trying to teach

"Me To move us to forever. Hello we're going by the way. Have we given up on it using the clock. I think the shot clock. It says fifty one which I think is a code. I feel like that's fifty one hours. I think it's been on for a long time. No all now. It says all the hours all the minutes. It's bets. Yeah Yeah we're GONNA take bets again. Wins going to poop out. I'll say again again. Twenty two minutes today last time twenty six. I'm going for twenty two. I was going to go with MJ. Twenty three but I'll go. I'll go Scottie Pippen. I'll go thirty thirty three minutes. Thirty three MIL giving it. I have the bed last time like twelve year. You were close. The closest big said like nine or something. Yeah Yeah I'M GONNA say fourteen minutes fourteen minutes. Okay I'M GONNA write that down and so you guys saw went to the football game so I went to the forty niners game and that was really cool. That's my third time going in the last Two years in the second time this year How a lot of fun going to last time so I was like well shit they play the seahawks coming up? That'd be really fun game to go and check out and so so I had an opportunity to go I I went man it was fucking awesome but as I was watching the game I was distracted. Because there's this giant Ryan machine on the sidelines of the game is this giant blue machine on the sidelines. And I kept looking at it and I was talking to this guy behind me and he goes. Oh that's the machine with the crank in it and I was like wait what I was like. Is that the answer to like our podcast problems. Like maybe we can actually broad broadcasting worldwide or even nationwide or even just get out of the state of California but that'd be because we don't have the frequency seapower cranks been stuck in. It's been broken and he's like yeah he's like that's you know that's it and it was as big giant blue Microsoft machine gene saw and I was already like take it home with me. Try I was GONNA try to steal it but there was cops and stuff everywhere so I was like all right. Maybe I should try to buy it but it was like seven hundred thousand bucks and Andy just you know she wasn't about it so I just that's a drop in the bucket though. I know that's what I was saying. I was like this is not a big deal. I was like it will fit on top Verka. Are you know the thing was about the size of our car but I do think it would help. Because the PODCAST. It's been broken for a long because we weren't we. I can only get like so many wattage watts. Our right like that's what you need to send the frequency of the signal out so something like that. That'd be huge. Yeah I mean there's that saying you gotta spend money to make money. Yeah I think you're talking about. Yeah Yeah Yeah so we gotta get that crank. I somehow also with many copy. It was there now plot. It was a it was like this. Is the things like the size of this room. Actually I don't know what the thing is it's actually like a device for like instant replay. I think what happened here by the way because people were deming me on. Espn it was the The interception for return for a touchdown I think. Yeah also the forty niners They are in some deep shit for a minute in the game and Russell Wilson Chuck the ball and the guy from The forty niners was intercepted. It a started taking it back and it was just like it was a linebacker. You know. Sky's get to forty to fifty on the bigger voice. Start rumbling down. The field is super exciting Because you don't know what the Hell's going to happen and they never get the opportunity. But when they do they freak out they want. They're just awesome become berry standard. Yeah they all all these moves and yeah yeah and so. That's what was going on with this guy. No one could tackle them for some. Yes and and so you're like Oh shit like he's doing pretty good and you're like Oh my God he's doing really good. Yeah and so I started freaking out I was like Holy Shit. I'm without a heart attack. During his remarks he was running for so long. And I'm yelling the whole time that's amazing and Anyway anyway so he finally got bumped out of bounce he'd in scoring and then it set up what was supposed to be the game winning field goal but unfortunately missed it and they lost the game on. Yeah Yeah but man it was. Yesterday was crazy crazy ass day Dr now here at Super Training getting in some good training we did some biceps Bassett's and some triceps. I've done a BICEP tricep workout in a long time. He like paranoid together. Like that. Or you do something different. I love you Taylor. It's always it's always fun. Yeah we we. We did pretty good for ourselves. Did some close grip bench tyler here with you guys. I heard he was going to be working with you. Oh man that would have been good if he was here but he was. Well he's GONNA show US up again at ninety pound dumbbell bench press for like thirty reps or whatever you did that day so you're purposely not inviting him anymore. We learned our lesson. Yeah we don't want him to kick our ass again. Yeah Yeah we did some BICEP TRICEP back and forth. Do you like Working opposite muscle groups. Or do you like Kind of getting a pump staying on the same muscle Alec Opposite Muscle groups. I like that more than like doing a bicep in a by supper. Whatever just has like it allows me to not have to take much of a break between right you know save time exactly? If you do like a push pull you could do that. Push and then you can go straight to that pool. You don't really need to take a break. You could just go back and forth right but if I did like a chest and shoulder man I'd be burden. Yesterday was a very shirtless day. I you know when I was in when I was at the game. I think it was on my wait to the game And I was like Like Andrew with a shirtless photo here. Oh Yeah and then it wasn't like much later or maybe it was earlier. I I was like Oh encima going shirtless picture. Andy's like your next got a shirtless picture but After the workout yesterday Andrew Engine I worked on some bodybuilding stuff and just trying to get them more confident and Atlanta. Yeah yeah he's looking. Awesome this trying to get a more confident. More comfortable will with having a shirt off and more comfortable with The stuff that's working and more comfortable with the stuff that he's still holding onto does not realize he has pumpkin dolts. Felt like you have pumpkins Ellsberg Like you a lot of people don't have shaped their doubts. Yeah get you. I don't know where those came from like to be totally I don- yeah 'cause I remember you had mentioned it like in the past and then the first time I took my shirt off mark like right away went straight to my shoulders. And that's something that I I've definitely always wanted big shoulders big traps. Yeah WanNa look like weird in a shirt right traps popping out here too. Yeah Hangman so but no it was. It was crazy it was. We did a full on kind of posed down and I think maybe two weeks ago I had him papa shirt off at the end of the workout to just to be just to be comfortable with it and just to have a lot of body awareness and so We even went as far as to like tug on. Whatever the fattest parts of your body or lower doc is again just not to sound too weird but you're just trying to find like did like where the weak points like? Let's just talk about. Let's figure it out like what's the good stuff. What's the bad stuff How do we make the bad stuff? Look a little bit better. And how do we make the stuff. That's already good. Look even better than that one of the tricks. The bodybuilding I think is is to you know you take the Areas of the body that are good biceps. triceps things like that. That might already be good on somebody and Why why not lean into those a little bit and build them up a little bit bigger than it makes? Everything seem a little out of proportion to whatever's going on with your belly or whatever it might be going on with your love handles or whatever whatever the thing is that she got so That was some of the stuff we were working on and I gave him a little speech to I kind of walk away from the Mirror for the minute because I noticed that he just is kind of having his head down and he was a little Shy about there was a bunch of other people in the gym and You know when you have friends in the jam you're just waiting for them to start making fun of you Talkin Shit and I think he was probably in his head thinking about. How is he going to respond to some of that stuff so how to walk? Walk away from the Mirror for a second and turn turn himself away from it. I said Dude. You're you're different person than you were months ago. Different person than you were two years ago and and so when you turn back around be a little more confident in yourself. Hold Your Chin up high Don't look to the side and don't look down like you're anxious or nervous suspi like kind of happy and and you have a new body to flop new by to show off and how you carry yourself can actually make you look leaner how you carry yourself can actually make you look better you you know if you have your shoulders slumped and you feel sappy than other people are going to feel that way with you. You don't so I was great. He on loaded the double bicep pose. And we did impose from the back and we worked on on your phone Andrew. Because I have a lot we took a lot of video. Yeah I know but Joshes joshes definitely fire that he kept turning and rotating so like you know when you try to go wide screen or whatever you can see what the heck's going on because he flipped it the other way and eh phones always spinning but no we got Tons of photos and video because he was snapping pictures the whole time. He was spinning while he was recording. Yeah he he didn't stop record like He. Yeah it stopped he just record and then Oh wait let me do this let me go back. Just settle it. No Josh Kim. Oh maybe he was trying to snap. Maybe he was trying to snap pictures during the video. Maybe Josh Usually Josh what he's doing..

No that's right throwing him out there. Seattle Gate Damn. That's right way. Brown won one hundred percent series because on his instagram yet posted coffee. Yeah any good coffee shops in Seattle and then Josh Kim's Domus was like starbucks Vo yes rush it original starbucks in Seattle right. Yeah okay. That's actually really really cool Area and I mean Seattle's finals awesome. But Yeah I've been to the first starbucks pretty cool check out. It's all like old school like it's got all the original but I don't know if that's all the original on stuff but has some original stuff the original logo with Bubis hanging out and I love to have the booze hanging out anymore. It's more covered up or somebody. That was the original logo. Yeah Yeah ahead some titties. Going on. I was way in favor of it. I was like this is great. They should bring this back but people got upset. It's a mermaid you know let me see actional original whoa look right mermaids aren't real but Double Check Yeah.

And that is one of those manscaping lawnmower. I'm or can get the fucking weed whacker though. Yeah I've never seen this philosophy spices. Why did why did they think that that was terrible? Not like like seriously. It wasn't starbucks started in like the nineties. Like this isn't like some super old company. And why did you think that that was a good logo. I'm just it doesn't doesn't matter. I guess this is the proof. That logos don't necessarily matter because like how big starbucks is not as well. Maybe they were small back then. I don't sell if history. I mean you could pretty much start off with the logo being a Dick and NEON can make a multibillion dollar company. It doesn't matter the new break the bar logo on bad idea bro. Just the silhouette of your this It says like this is not a phallic symbol. This is Dick just says it clearly right on right on right on the logo. We are live right now. Oh absolutely didn't start yet.

"Yeah there are things right yeah so whatever happened to that i'm mike i'm so confused in there was a i remember people talking yeah yeah we were like we were going to a lululemon there so then we start driving because relieving and it's like it goes from there and then we start seeing a lot of like indian and mexican people part of it as we were driving out and it's just like just the areas are so segmented it's yeah crazy i'm not surprised if you're going towards lou lim i know see and then you probably got closer to the flea market out there and started seeing people i know inches so i guess it's still so wild just how like you know it's just so separate in terms of like these areas but i think and people that are part of a majority have never they don't they don't have any experience with that would feel like you know and not even saying that like anything happened or anybody anybody was viewing you a particular way but it's like your own rulings on how you feel about yourself that end up mattering in those circumstances right you might be like oh fuck like and what does the white dude thank you know when he's around you're going to be like oh man like i'm i'm i don't see anybody else that looks like me to get mugged i'm in the wrong area yeah so yeah it is it is definitely something that you see still all over the place um but i think it's just it's i think it's in our nature you know from the time where a kid when the iron i remember when my children real young when they were like four or five years old we'd go grocery store and they'd see another kid now this didn't adam ethnicity they were they saw another kid and they're like that person's like me like i wanna go play with that kid and they would like especially like on the playground or something yeah i didn't know that they didn't they were like hey what's your name like where are you from like oh and turn around like not hang out with the kid they wouldn't even ask him anything it would just be like yeah dude these swings are sick leave that slide over there let's go let's go let's go throw around these wood chips but it's just that you see somebody that is like you they they look like you they kinda walk like you they babble the words the same way as you do and stuff like that nothing's i remember like the first thing was like like who's your favorite football team the niners all right yeah you're is that so that's kind of the first star of it i guess it was very different in that like interesting in that way because like grown up here i don't know how it was for you mark but like it was super it's super mixed here like you know my whole childhood like there was never to psycho only people are only mexican people whatever it was like super mix team the schools i went to so there is never like i guess there's never that feeling of you know sometimes there is a feeling of being other but it wasn't ism you know as much as other people were like where you grew up guessing would like you're right you're up couldn't be anymore i mean you could you guys could write it down on a piece of paper i mean you guys could you guys could probably visualize in your head i'm from upstate new york which is like i think sometimes when people think new york they're thinking you know concrete they're thinking like new york city there's no concrete it's just like woods you know is primarily white the school i went to know he didn't have one black kid in school but it kind of seemed like we did right and of course he was the best athletes like he demolished everybody in every like he was he was fucking awesome great wrestler he was a great football player and even when i was younger i think my school as as i went to high school my school was pretty big and so there was more diversity there i remember growing up one of my best friends his name was me and he was he was defy the football player and then there was another kid that was the all these kids who are always in my class axis and this other kid jonathan jonathan lou asian kin and jonathan lou like he fucking skyrocketed through school like i think he was in college courses in like ninth grade and so like that's you know for me that's my that's my education on like racist like got this black kid he's really fucking good and obviously like i said as i got older of course you know more stuff you have your more educated but as a young kid i was like oh this guy's faster than me i'm like oh those guys over there for whatever reason are a lot smarter than me yeah i remember i used to sit next jonathan lou all the time in that motherfucker would never let me cheat off but it was amazing in the beginning of the school year he didn't know and i was just like rocking it man in in every class i was just killing it and then my parents like let's go on and eight percent yeah yeah you were smoke and everything i'm like yeah fucking jonathan louis he he started like you know creep creep in his papers over his shoulder in there and i couldn't talk and read them anymore man yeah i remember someone saying sacramento the most diverse city in america so one of the ugliest i think to the average that so i just of as as as far as most diverse city in america who yeah just says i saw a lot of diversity when when we had the the end millionaire summit bar is like hayes like he's like i want to i went to go out like just to see if i could find some like food he goes i saw a guy taking a shit on the sidewalk because there's like rate right there with a citizen hotel is there's a lot of bums a lot of homeless people i should probably yeah well because it's right in front of chavez park his word they all congregate and so yeah he said he was walking down and he looked down and alley and he's like there was a guy full on taking a shit on the street that's more like some san francisco stuff it's really bad over there but it's getting bad here too yeah that is a little bit a little bit weird it's very sketchy there yeah man how was that summit what by the way can you talk about that ah i can talk about him i can i talk about it andrew it was your summit at your summit not sure if he was let me check with myself real fast i self you know i thought it was i thought it was i thought really turned out really well my like intentions and goal for it i a didn't truly know i didn't really i didn't really know what it was gonna turn into i just knew that i have felt very fortunate with bringing people in you know getting people here super training gym getting a guys like chris duffin and matt winning and guys it's like ron pana and we started off like kind of just bringing in powerlifters and communicating with powerlifters because that's my background and that's my passion and so i was like well i would love for people like i know a lot about squat bench and dead lift but i certainly don't know all there is to know so it'd be great to bring in other people that have different manage points different views and also in powerlifting you don't really get a spotlight put on you and so the intention of the of the podcast originally was let let let me allow you to be to take the spotlight because you have impressive information and you have impressive lifts and i don't know why everyone's so excited about what i have to say but you know taylor william is like dead lifted nine hundred pounds over here and we should pay attention to that so that's how some things originally started but as people kept coming in i just kept learning from them and i kept absorbing and i felt like i kept getting better we would have jay cutler a. and sure enough i would start to get leaner we would have stand efforting come in and every time stands been around i get a little bit stronger again so every time someone would come around you know i would gain knowledge towards something else i'd get fired up again about something else and i'd start working really hard towards it and so over the years as i transitioned into not having has many powerlifters and really trying to gain more knowledge for my own business and and for and to provide value for the people that work here it's slingshot aunts who occasionally seminars and things like that i was like man like this is so cool and so powerful but imagine if i could bring together a chip people at one time and magic trim all the fat and just get rid of let's just let's just take social media stuff and let's just crumpled up and let's just throw it in the bridge let's not really film anything the only thing we had done was we had joss settlers uses phone a little bit just to get a couple of shots here and there and we had our boy andrew over there snapping some pictures just just to have them you know because it is great that were able to assemble all these people be enclosed with a guy like todd abrahams and ron penna is really amazing i don't know why these guys are so willing to share so much in front nation yeah ron penna has been the one of the original co founders of nutrition we we were we were trying to figure out some different things with amazon and he was like oh no problem he's like we'll get our team to get on a phone call with josh kim who's our right here you're gonna let them take two hours out of their day to like work with my team for for free for nothing and so what i've been learning for a long time is the guy the gym with the twenty inch arms that guys that guy is waiting for you to come up to him and ask him a question the girl on the gym with the apps she's she wants you to go over to her and if you're dude probably wanna be hit on but she wants to come over and ask you some questions hey what are you doing with your diet you you look amazing what are you doing with nutrition i would love to be able to figure something out like that these people that are wealthy same thing these people that are wealthy you wouldn't think that some of the some people that are really wealthy live in gated communities they don't want anybody fucking come in and they want to be secluded or they wanna move out to the country like i did but the second that you say hey man had you bill how the going to give information and as i got around you know bar kwan robin dana lynne bailey todd abrams his wife deborah jason.

I don't know why are we speaking about that. How about we change the subject doc. We're not gonNA seem anymore. We know do my best not to get addicted so what's happened off of the peer pressure of of Andrews Air Gaza and Chris Griffin here at the office. They pressured me into this. It wasn't amount volition or choice. I bought an antenna switch. Okay then bought a few games ebbs one-two-three before I've been able to play him that much but you know this is what it is. I literally never pressured him. Once going to get the red light set up every soon there all the time every single day you've been sex by switch by switch switch podcast which you you know that's just outright what you did inaccurate to come in his thumbs are. GonNa be all bandaged up. He's not gonna be able to do what you do. We start a twitch twitch stream in here so that way it's work so it's worked yeah. Oh you should buy wants to do we could play. We could play worms. We could play Mario Kart and we I like Mario Kart Mario Kart see see. Here's another thing when the switches so do we were. We're I think we had a layover something happen mark and Iron Airport and unlike hey check this out. pull the switch apart. We we're playing Mario Kart for Lake Mary Carter. It's pretty good to bat us. He got those the Red Turtle. Shell people are people are done with that rhetoric. That will cost some issues for sure. I might have to buy that to mama going to going to save money. Do you need you need a party game yeah. I do need a party game anyway. Let's Yeah I can't let myself get addicted like it wasn't the best so anyway I think the question was. What did we do before so. Hopefully we got to most of that yeah I was basically a bum. I I was just trying to figure out what I was going to do with myself and I was a stay at home dad. I had some side bouncing jobs. I had a side job here side job. They're always tried to work. Hard art always tried to do the right thing and you know eventually things. things worked out for me. Things worked out the way that they worked out but like real in wealth and success and some of those things they actually came like right around the same time. I Made Super Training Gym free so like I Made Super Training Gym free before I really could or should head of and so like there's a little lesson wrapped in that I think you want to try to give out as much as you possibly can and you'll get a lot back. Sometimes it's hard to understand that maybe we don't have the finances behind you but things things can work out for you. Just try to do the right thing for as long as he can. Keep working hard. Keep keeping persistent with it. Keep thinking and if something's not working and keep working on it anyway keep trying to try different and things you know. I had a magazine for a long time. We had power magazine for a long time and it's like some things you got to let go of. Some things are not going to be as prosperous as you thaw aw they're not gonNA maybe provide the amount of money that you might think and so. It's like some things you gotta try them and then you got to be realistic about it. It's great to have dreams. I got a lot of dreams. luckily for me. My wife is she brings the realness in the relationship and she'll you know she's kind of sometimes the fund hammer for me but someone's someone's gotTa level you back down to reality so. I'm lucky that I have someone at can do that for me. That can kind of put things in perspective and say hey you know. I don't really think that's a good idea something. That's helped me over the last couple years to think. Am I going to be doing that in the next four or five years. That's something that's really helped a lot so when I start to think about you know we have a new project that we're we're going to start working on here tomorrow actually and as we start to dive in some of that that's the question is. Is this going to be something. I'm going to be doing the next four years next five years next ten years and those are kind of hard questions. Those are tough questions really to really answer but you gotTa. GotTa try to be truthful and honest with yourself about it. I'm looking into like making some supplements and stuff like that to kind of same thing on that front like am I going to be excited about these amino acids you you know five years from now and I have been excited about him for the last fifteen or twenty years so probably like I'm probably not gonNA. Change that much and kind of just kind of in in finishing everything out I was also I should point out that was fortunate enough to where my wife was working so we we didn't need like a big boom of income. You know I was making like some supplemental income but she was making money I was dealing with the kids and then our roles eventually reverse twin twin slingshot started to grow and when I started to put more time and more resources into that invention kind of came along then every the tables kind kind of flipped and we can get more of that another podcast some other time. I had a lot of frustrating times they weren't they weren't bad times by any means but I lived most of the things that a lot of guys are living now. I had shitty cars cars breakdown me many many times. I you know I've slept in my car before I drove long hours to go to seminars. I've you know kind of most of the things that a lot of you. Guys and girls have experienced like I've I've done probably some of those things already and I'm actually you know I'm thankful that those things happen because led me to all the things that I'm currently doing so if you're feeling worn out from the whole process to your best to stick with it I want to. I'm curious about something that you mentioned. I know that Andy She you. You have a lot of ideas and stuff but she doesn't smash it right. She'll she'll be real with genius. He just smashes it. Okay well sorry but you with all the the things that you had when you were coming up and figuring things out. Did you have a lot of people telling you or in your life telling you oh you probably can't do that. You probably shouldn't do that at all like like. Did you have a lot of that or did. Were most of the people in your life like your parents. Andy seemed pretty positive. were they mostly like that. let's see when it when it came to the gym people were pretty negative. They didn't understand that part of it. The Gym was like the gym was really raw. You know it was it was legitimately. Just a bunch of big dudes taken steroids lifting some heavy fucking weight and listening to heavy metal. You know like and rap music where they curse every other word so as like. No one knew us at four. You know what's that about like what is and I always thought it was cool. I was like I don't know what it's about. Outlets cool like this like people will like this. I got a documentary film and stuff and so from the Gym Perspective Yeah. No one really knew what that was about. My wife understood because she had swimming so she kind of identified with okay well. That's like his thing I like to swim. He likes to lift so she kinda recognized that that was important almost more so for my mental mental health but we also knew that for us we were never we weren't trying to really turn the actual.

"Funny. It's like it reminded me of when I got to college of being in L._A.. I was all my own. It didn't know anybody actually for the first like six months of college. I would only hang out with this one guy that I went to high school with and I'm like we just doing really. I didn't know anyone I'm scared but shot. Josh Kim Hope you're doing well but like it. Kinda reminded me of when I when I moved to L. A. and like you don't know anyone but in college. When I first moved there I was so oh terrified and it's actually funny? I ended up joining Sorority and then you like have this whole system of like people like a big and a little whatever and all that sort of stuff so basically who I picked as my big. I really like her. I think she's fine. I don't talk to anymore <hes> but I always looked back like once actually made my close group of college friends. Everyone was just like Oh. I never understood how you guys got paired together my big and I just because we didn't really we got along. Well Really Click Click and I think it's solely because not not that I settled but I was just like latching catching like oh my God like this girl's Nice. I'm going to be best friend like blanched on like that. Whereas once I like finally felt comfortable to be my real self in front of everybody really found people like staff is my Steph is a lifer for me in like I met her only once I was able to comfortably open up and myself and she could be her crazy? I got an next one is apologizing for things. You really shouldn't <hes> when you continuously apologize for things that you shouldn't be apologizing for it. It'll turn into a cycle. Not Apologizing doesn't make you insincere. It makes issue conscious of what is really worth your. I'm sorry so much more if you actually if you the more sparingly you haven't trying very much so to stop saying I'm sorry I say twenty seven like someone could run into me and I'm sorry I literally do the grocery store. I'm <unk>. Also I saw. This isn't one of the books I'm reading. I think it scrolls stop apologizing. I think and granted it doesn't work for every situation because there's been a few situations where I go to do and I'm like Oh. This makes no sense but replace. I'm sorry hi with thank you so terribly is saying I'm sorry I'm late so you thank you for waiting for me or if you bump into or see like if you bumped his own you can't say thank you for not yelling at me to apologize and say oh. It's totally fine. Yeah yeah yeah little things like that so there's been times when I'm like wow I want to switch my vocabulary up to like say that and say Oh thank you because then also instead of putting it down on yourself saying I'm sorry you like if someone said thank you for waiting. I would take that more sincere. 'cause I'd be like wow thank you. I did notice that I had to wait and I appreciate appreciate that like I would appreciate that Moore. I'm trying to not Sam sorry no. I think that's good yeah she did last one. I think really really good okay last one putting other people's feelings before your own. It's okay to be considerate and all not you read it. It's okay to be considered an acknowledged other people's feelings but it shouldn't be at the expense of ignoring your own keeping things all bottled up inside isn't healthy and you're not being fair.

He didn't go to school for anybody either. And he's way better than I am now, and I've been doing it longer. But just because he does it so much now, it's, you know, you're right on the job or just being in the culture. You learn way more than a piece of paper is gonna ever teach you on. That's where somebody might. And I'm talking about complaining about like kind of where you're at you know, and complaining about like the way things are like we bring someone in. And we say, hey, we pay X amount. This is what we pay for for Taga Graffiti, fee. this is this is your amount of money. And then someone's like well shit man will how am I gonna Ford my life? You know, and how am I supposed to be able to do? Well too stupid job. If this is all I get well because it's not about what you get. It's about what she can become right? And if you can if you can work in an environment like this, and you can expedite your learning process. You should be fucking paying us it work here. I mean, obviously, you have to get paid for what you're doing. Right. But the point is is that what a wonderful opportunities that come into some of these smaller companies and really learn at the ground level. I mean, if you hung around here long enough, you could ask a couple questions in our warehouse. You can ask a couple questions to Jessica Smith who runs a lot of our social media. You can pop into the media room and kind of find out what they're doing you can run over and talked a little smokey and realize that he doesn't do anything for this company. You can go talk to Josh Kim. And and figure out fuck he does with himself all day. But you really learn absorb a ton, and it would be about way more than for talker fee because when when you sign up for photography or you wanna be a photographer, you might think. Okay. Well, I just wanna snap some really cool Jit photos, and I'm gonna get some scenery. And like, I don't know every once in a while, maybe. I'll like shoot a wedding 'cause that's just good money.

And this is before it was all popular and shit. He used to go out of his way to drive a few hours to come workout for few hours and then drive a Fiore's back home. And if you guys know the bay, the traffic's awful. He voluntarily wanted to do this to be around Mark and to lift and be and live better. There's no excuses. So when I see people that say that stuff that really bugs me because I know Mark won't ever say, I mean, he might, but you probably won't ever say it how much how annoying that is. If I had that opportunity, you shut your mouth. Everyone has an opportunity you put yourself in that spot. So if you really want to take a leap of faith, you do it. Smokey just checked in. She's still talking. Remember remember remember. Sounded just like him about smokey was on the podcasts. Oh yeah. That happen. You gotta do the finger. From. Come for me smokey. That's that's how he sounds so you. Well, when he gets going. Yeah, who? Yeah. Before before he hits up his bench, I was being so supportive of me yesterday. He gave me the finger. He was lying.

So my job because I think people think it's easy though too. See. On Monday. I was up till one AM, making sure things were up also here last night. Like why was leaving you and Terrell? We're like checking somebody out there like they were bunny day Tuesday was here 'til ten. And no one. I mean, no one's here to see that. You know, like like Marcus was like logging up and make sure everybody was out of the gym or whatever. But I was still here till ten, you know, like marked NC that smoke. You didn't see that you work in. That happens a lot though. Like I know for fact, Josh, Kim and Chris Griffin were here till eight or nine on Monday, and no one else was here to see that, you know, like we don't go, hey, check us out even ten PM you know, like we don't do that like we work really hard and and a lot of times it's by ourselves or without a lot of is there's no one telling us, hey, just you can't go home until you know, this has to tell me to go home. Sometimes he's like, do you have a live monkey had to force Andrew to take vacation time? That's good. He's needs to take some damning. I showed up here and he's like, you can't be here. Yeah. Well, what do you what? What? Why would I do? He's like, no, you. I understand. You can't be here. You have to take time off. Yeah, smokey is the same way though. He really, I'm glad he took a vacation this year and he's the same way. We all we all kind of have the same work ethic. Yeah. We're, I mean, I'm here seven days a week Stevens here seventies week, but I don't think that would happen less. We had, you know, we have good relationship. Yeah, it's, you know, we're like I like my work relationship. Yeah, they're, I mean they're more than just. See you in the office, right? Or if one of the links in the chain was like really weak and you know, we're like kind of all trying to pick up the slack for one person outs. Right. I mean, obviously, but you know, it's like a, I'm down to, you know, like before the seminar, I don't even. I was tiered fuck way too long, but I'm totally fine because I worked with like everybody that day. Yeah. And then like by the end of the night, it was like me and Griffin. We're still here, but like like, of course I'm going to bust my ass because he's still here with me in the morning. I'll squatting with Mark and you know, throughout the whole day, like smokey helped.

"But then Cavanaugh said he hadn't had any conversations about Muller with that fellow either. So it's not entirely clear why he brought that name up. So I do think there were moments at which Cavanaugh. Didn't seem at his best in answering these questions, but I'm not sure that on the panel or in the broader Senate that any minds were changed by the display we saw today and last night, Kim as best you can't. As a lawyer, do you think these documents we have learned about today? The whole pile of them are impactful in fact. And do you think we have a right to see his work product from thirty five months of his life in the Bush White House? Well, under the presidential records act, the Bush records are belong to the people not to Mr Bush, and certainly not to Mr. Trump and I'm concerned with the institution of the supreme court and the way it's being so deeply politicized by the majority party here, I think we can think back to the last contentious supreme court hearing in our recent history and that would be Clarence Thomas. And when Anita hill accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment, there was unanimous vote in the. The Senate bipartisan vote to stall the proceedings and engage in a hearing on that particular issue. He was ultimately confirmed, and there was a Paul, I think over him, and I think it's unfortunate that in the highly polarized temp temperature that we're in is a country by virtue of this particular president, that Brad Kavanagh is now in the in a similar situation. I do think that this information should come out. I think that the Republicans in congress and shifting the cloture vote from sixty to fifty with Neil Gorsuch and punting Merrick, garland, nomination unnecessarily, and cynically, and politically so that Mr Obama didn't get his. I think we're creating a situation where the legitimacy legitimacy of the court itself is being questioned in a an environment where we already have broken executive branch and a broken congress. And I think that's really the tragedy here and remember what Bush v gore did to questions about this court politically. Hey, josh. Kim raises a great point all the character witnesses for this judge say Kavanagh's nice guy, really smart. Everyone said americ-, garland, nice guy, very smart. What is the Paul Merrick garland holds over this gathering? Well, among Democrats, there's no question that that shadow continues to extend over this. I think that perhaps the brilliance of the Republican move here, though by Mitch McConnell is it does now seem a long time ago that Zappa said with Merrick, garland took place. We've had a whole supreme court nomination, inbetween and so I think in the public mind and just the way people think about these things, it becomes more difficult as time goes on to convey some sort of urgency about a wrong done to Merrick, garland, two years ago when we're talking about a nominee that is not even the most recent nominee to follow garland. So there's no question that that's lingering out there. There's a lot of bitterness on Democrats on. That side. And I also think among democratic senators, when many of them cast their votes, you'll see that issue of Merrick, garland, raised again, and again, and perhaps that'll even be at the forefront and Kavanagh's qualifications or his views on these issues might actually take a back seat to some of that ongoing strife between the two parties about the supreme court. Hey, Kim, you're a lawyer and not a politician, God bless you. But this this question involves both Collins and Murkowski, two prominent Republican senators who are notably publicly and loudly pro choice. How do you think they get to a? Yes, vote on this guy unless he's been speaking code to them and their Senate offices. Well, it's hard to say that..
