I have now transitioned out of their roles. This seems to be the game plan. You just stop showing up on stage appearing in the. People kind of forget about you but you're still there you still doing your job they quietly transition you out of your role, and then they quietly announced that they're leaving and they become an apple fellow, which is what happened to Phil.

"To another episode of Zero, to IPO were absolutely thrilled to have to amazing guests on the show today I wanna I introduce Beth comstock who for many years in fact, almost three decades was at GE and served as the vice chairperson. There is on the board of Nike is also the author of this amazing book called imagine it forward, which I am really enjoying and learning a lot from and have a bunch of questions to ask Beth about the. Beth welcome on the show. Thanks Josh. Great to see you great to be here. And our other guests is Jasmine crow who is the CEO and founder of Gooder, which is a company that I am fascinated by I. think it's one of the more insightful companies that I've come across. Recently I also have a lot of questions for you Jasmin about how the idea came to you, but but welcome on the show. Thanks so much gas and happy to be here. Of course, we've got Freddie caressed my co host. Zeroed IPO your morning Josh, how you doing good I bet and Jasmine, nice to see you. Thanks for joining us today I'm super excited about today. Yeah me too good to see you. Well, let's dive right in because we have a lot to talk about Jasmine I wanNA start with you and I want to understand I want our audience to understand where you're coming from. When you started gooder there's some kind of basic facts that I want our audience to understand domestically we are wasting seventy-two billion pounds of food every year while forty two million people are struggling with food insecurity absolutely that's a foundational mess. And it's even worse. Now, I'll of everything that's happening with current virus who are wasting more food and more people are going hungry. So it is a huge issue. Yeah. I mean just to be clear before this even. I read somewhere that we were wasting about a quarter trillion dollars a year on food in the United States if people number eight is that right? Yeah. Right Frederick in. So I guess to put an even more simpler context about two percent of GDP is on wasted food for that's a lot of money spent on food that never gets eaten in this country does Like many people I have some passing familiarity with this I. Read about it I don't even know where to start and it seems like maybe you go out and you you know you try to donate food as best you can and and I think that's maybe where you started. Yeah and it transformed into something quite extraordinary. So yeah if you know Josh I started feeding people that were experiencing hunger and homelessness in two thousand thirteen out of my apartment in Atlanta Georgia So that's where got started I found a parking. Lot I drove past it one day and I just saw hundreds of people that were homeless in in something kind of just pulled on my heartstrings at that moment and I said I wanNA help you know what do I didn't have a ton of money and I knew I could cook and so I just went home I post it on facebook I mean Sunday. I'm going to go downtown and I'm going to feed on the streets. If. You want to join me I had about twenty volunteers I made a spaghetti dinner. And loved it. You know brought out my little beats pill at the time, which wasn't that loud outside. Dating us, you're dating we know exactly when you're store your. Heckling when it happened so I really wasn't that loud music thing. But I have bad and you know the idea was it would be old school kind of Sunday music why Jackson five and Aretha Franklin James Brown like this classic kind of music and a good Sunday dinner, and that's how it all got started in. So of eighty own from one of my pop up restaurants went viral on facebook and people are saying this is so amazing which restaurants donate the food and the reality was nobody I was couponing on price matching I always say, I'm the reason Walmart doesn't price-match anymore I definitely feel like i. gave them a run for him. And then I was cooking thing taking it downtown, serving it coming home cleaning up, and so it would take me like forty hours every week I did this and I started researching food ways and was really like upset like I can't believe this much food goes to waste in here I. Am you know putting together five dollar donations and my own money and trying to make these feeding is happening to feed five hundred people

I'm dislike you know. Trying to. Keep it real basic good. Ball right. Simple. Right. Who is it? Well, you have roommates you live with Andrew Yeah our friend. Andrew. And then what do you mean by quarantine friends? Is that people that you're like meeting up with two social distance walk or like? That what that involves yeah. These are the people that I see on a regular basis and. We keep it. Safe What am I a homeys Jarman I go over to his place a lot. 'cause one they don't have a car and then. Yeah I've just been there ever since quarantine started th I would like frequent their place. A lot and unlike merely just the only person that comes over there. So. Yeah I got tested once and I have another testing kit here that I'm going to do. Tomorrow. Because I, mail it out. So it's like put in A. Yeah, I have not heard of these. Well, I've heard that they exist I. Don't know anybody personally until this moment of anyone that's been using those like Mayland huskies. Revelation Andrew Andrew's one I. got this from my friend. A can send you the link Mingy, but it's free. It's from labcorp basically. Okay and it's they partnered with this company called Pixel and yet they they send you this kit you do a nose swab, and then you put the specimen in a bag and then you sent to Fedex and everything is already taken care of. Yeah, it's just it's a very. What time to be alive I mean this is the ongoing thing. We're at one four. I've been doing weekly podcast sometimes twice a week. So it get to me I'm just like. To what extent does that that saying I'm already sick of it. I've been sick of like week three but you know it's it's just a knowledge the accumulation of what's going on like you and I had a check in before we even started recording like are you okay to record and that's like a new development at least in my world that I noticed people like very graciously doing because we're all on different. Energy sources like our levels are fuel tanks are all. Are All very sensitive right now and so I really appreciated that because there was there was one moment is like consent and permission and just self self awareness right and checking in were like somebody that I had a a meeting like a phone call with asked me that and legit thought about saying you know what? Like maybe it'd be better to talk a different day and. I had never asked. You know you just go just Gogo as a really appreciated that philosophically like the asked me that I checked in and I ended up saying you know what I think if we just keep it pretty of UK for maybe like a half hour instead of like doing a full hour conversation. So stuff like that is is changing on my end. Now know about what's going on in your in your world of like how people are gauging those things warmer. I think we are being a little bit more sensitive to each other, which is great I haven't done like my podcasts in a long time, but I have had a couple. You know just phone calls with friends while I'm doing like these walks and stuff and. A lot of it is. Hey Dude checking in opening up about like any feelings or. Anything like that because again, this is a really weird time.
20 Minutes About Metabolic Fitness
"Everyone it's Martin from twenty minutes fitness. I'm here in San Francisco and I'm connected to levels founder Josh, Clementi Josh. Why don't you to be yourself? Martin's great to be on the show I mean on I'm josh, founder of levels and John Interested in bringing metabolic fitness to the mainstream rates, and so what does everyday mean? What is Metabolic Chiasso metabolism? Easy Way to think about metabolism is the set of cellular mechanisms that create energy from our food and environment that. So this is how we power the processes in our body ourselves bringing fuel and they turn it into energy and so metabolic fitness or metabolic health is when those systems are. Operating properly and you have often energy weight balanced performance without excess byproducts and so the way that that we're doing this is using continuous glucose monitoring hardware software analytics to close the loop between actions you take every single day in your daily life and the reactions, your body experiences in particular, the blood sugar response, your body experiences, and so this is this is the level, is that closing loops between action reactions the way that behavior change becomes eating, easy and obvious I, and so we're the first metabolic fitness company greenest market, and how do you define an excess byproduct like at what point you have too much nutrition what is it exactly? So, the some of the easy ways to think about this art glucose itself. So this is a it's sugar essentially, this is a molecule that is the primary energy molecule in the human body so that metabolism functionality that we talked about is driven primarily off of glucose sugar and fat, and so when you're consuming sugar, it releases into the bloodstream and You know this is actually just tipping carbohydrates while they sugars that interest the bloodstream, and so this triggers a cascade of processes, hormonal processes, and those tell your body, how to op sort of appropriate that Lucas, into the cells for for their useless contrived things like weight gain can. Be for muscle expenditure for energy using mechanical loads on a commute for cognitive function in the brain. But those laws get too high. You actually have an inflammatory situation because Lucas is a very reactive molecule it produces what are called free radicals, inflammatory cytokines. I'll sixteen alpha you know these different molecule byproducts of glucose reactions that actually are very inflammatory and can cause breakdown of tissues and skin glaciation, which is right leads to Browning of the skin and wrinkles. All these byproducts that ultimately are are not good for us. So there's a fine balance and glucose is meant to be kept in tight control and that's what we mean by byproducts. Normally unless you have diabetes, you should not have resistance to insulin release right so how does that really matter van for you know everyday use that a non diabetic being that we have been since glucose is the primary energy source for for the modern person we've studied the Post Disease State of Glucose for for many decades. So this is called diabetes typically type two diabetes which a lifestyle driven illness that sets in your body can no longer respond to insulin you can't use glucose in. Your bloodstream effectively, it gets really high toxic levels. So we studied that quite a bit but the thing is that all of us across the metabolic spectrum from healthy to to less healthy are all using net glucose and so there is an optimization function here where because these mechanisms are linear you know it's not it's not like a a threshold where you cross over it, and then suddenly you're unhealthy that's kind of how start thought about a me to think about this metabolic fitness meaning the choices. We make require focus effort and repetition to achieve optimization. So it doesn't matter where you fall on the spectrum metabolic health de Choices you're making today are affecting your hormonal cascade causing qualitative experiences in causing quantifiable to potentially detrimental effects like weight gain, where's performance exercise cognitive decline sort of all of the things that we struggle with our day-to-day are affected by the choices we're making that we don't really connect because we don't have that close loop system. So now by by showing that the person who. Doesn't have diagnose metabolic dysfunction. You can optimize your choices daily see the data in real time, make better ones, and then achieved this sort of metabolic control where instead of having these this roller coaster of spikes and crashes in energy issues, and again wait gained the rollercoaster. We all ride day today that we kind of use our emotions feel way through. You cannot have data and you can use that to achieve this the state of balanced control and you know lower flatter smoother continual on metabolic control.
Miami Marlins blank Baltimore Orioles in first game back following COVID-19 outbreak
"I am totally on the Marlins bandwagon They played last night in Baltimore nine days after their last game after 18 players tested positive. To begin with stand. This was a team that lost 105 games last year. There were questions as to how competitive they could be with roster they had. Now they've got ah, more than a dozen replacement players, including Ah, Miran Amore in to Josh Smith's and an Olympic short track speed skating silver medalist in Eddie Alvarez. So what happens? Five pitchers combined for a three hitter with one walk in 11 strikeouts, and the Marlins beat the Orioles four to nothing. You got

Why Microsoft wants TikTok
"We start off with the deal that has got wall. Street. Washington, and the World Talking Microsoft dying and acquisition of Tiktok in this comes after president trump threatened to ban the video sharing APP here in the US over security concerns the president then made an about face and gave Microsoft the go ahead to proceed with the deal shares of Microsoft rallying today. Let's get to Josh. Lipton with the very latest Josh. So Melissa President trump also weighing in here. Take a listen to what he had to say today. Would have closed down on September fifteenth unless Microsoft or somebody else's able to buy it and work out a deal inappropriate deal. So the Treasury of the. Really, the Treasury I guess you say of the United, states, gets a lot of money. So, why is Microsoft interested in Tiktok? Well, it's a wildly popular APP with one hundred, million users already here in the US engagement trends are strong and stuff that users already spent over an hour a day on the APP Tales. Patrick at emphasizes too broad reasons why he says this could make strategic sense argues Microsoft is relatively weak in consumer services with the exception of xbox live gaming service. So Co a delicate immediately become a much bigger player in consumer technology second this is a potential moneymaker in delicate monetize that big pool of fans to advertising business that the company well understands but they are. Real risks to Microsoft's history and consumer focused acquisitions is mixed from Nokia's handset business to mixture. It's live streaming service. There's also the question of focus here and Adela has concentrated on the enterprise market analysts say that has served his company very well and kept him out of that Regulatory Spotlight Melissa back to you Josh. Thank you. Josh with the latest on Microsoft tiktok cloud plowed his business that got Microsoft to where it is today. Guy Me. So if you Microsoft goes down this road of buying this business while it seems like it's the hottest property around in social media does that do Microsoft shareholders? Well? Probably Yeah I mean the market today told you absolutely yes and a lot of people say it style drift and could lead them down a bad road but you know what are we talking about in terms of price tag your I haven't seen anywhere from forty to fifty billion dollars. You probably know better than I and it's it's it's basically rounding. For Microsoft Number One and number two, the move into stock more than paid for the deal. So it's hard not to like. This Mike Real question is clearly I missed that day in college when the US Treasury gets investment banking fees on deals that are done between two companies I don't know how I missed it, but clearly, I did what? What? Exactly? How does the US Treasury come into this equation? I guess it's somewhat of rhetorical question but you know this whole thing is fascinating to me on a number of levels. But the answer, your original question I don't think it's negative Microsoft and the market today told you it's positive. I mean the order to divest is one interesting aspect of this whole affair. Then there's I mean when I read it, I immediately thought like brokers fee Harkening to Donald Trump's real estate days I don't know if he thinks he gets twenty per treasury excuse me gets twenty percent or what exactly the Treasury is GonNa get out of this whole thing Karen on one can only imagine. I have no idea. Maybe one has got. To be in this situation. It really is crazy I don't love the precedent at all. I feel like we're just sort of taunting. China to. have some sort of reciprocal response that I would imagine. We really won't like very much. So I I'm. Kind of perplexed by the whole thing and I mean I don't know what the right Fi is a. The whole thing is. That part is so crazy he did. Trump say either to Microsoft or someone else I don't know I mean. Microsoft can compete with anyone in terms of price. I don't know if there is a possibility of someone else, but I get also Microsoft which sort of want to give it a try why not money is free to them practically, I mean they have cash but if they wanted to do with dad, it's practically free to them. So I know the woman Tiktok doesn't make money, but I still think it's interesting for them to do and clearly guy pointed out the stock market or the Microsoft holders. It. bakes. Well there's two things here on the big kind of geopolitical. If you don't think that the global economy is fracturing at least into pieces than you're not paying attention because that's what the deal the precedents of this deal is number two on the Microsoft Front. I personally. Don't understand why Microsoft would want this the only thing that makes sense if they can get it at a discount because bike dances forced to divest it but I'm not sure I mean again Josh. They don't have a great history on the consumer side. I mean I'm sure guy still remembers the Zun I still have one of those that was an abject failure. Don't know what this does for them. I do it. You know you you lose focus. So for me I don't really like it but you know what? I'm not the stock market and the stock market like ten. This is exactly Brian San Love Brandon Guy. This is exactly why Microsoft wants it because they're not here because because everyone else first of all, that could be a buyer of this is is in Washington under the scrutiny of the government in terms of their social platforms or too big. This totally makes sense I mean think about the business that they just told you about in gaming an xbox and even azure and the fact that ninety percent of the market. Cap Probably is enterprise. That's the whole point. That's why you'd be going after this year to me. This is this makes a ton of sense because they're probably the only guys can step in and buy it at least with this type of ability to navigate both Washington navigate the financials and yes, they are getting it at a beaten down valuation. If you're getting this anywhere from I, don't know seven eight to ten times. Where these guys are in terms of revenue, that's Eba dos gives me e extraordinary and I think it's actually been proven to be. We've talked about on this show why facebook is running scared of TIKTOK. So why wouldn't Microsoft running towards talk? It makes a lot of sense I like it. All right. Let's get more on what this deal could mean for. Microsoft let's bring in is jared Weiss fell jared great to speak with you. You also think this deal makes a whole lot of sense. In terms of the synergies across the consumer business think this deal could enhance for Microsoft. I think at the end of the day, the biggest takeaway should be from Microsoft perspective when you have the ability to go ahead and integrate a lot of the capabilities that tic TAC. TIKTOK has you think about the technology stack that TIKTOK has and it's incredibly sophisticated. So you can then leverage that and marry that with some of the internal capabilities that Microsoft already has on Azure with the second largest cloud service provider the on the planet I think the the capabilities are dramatic. Tiktok knows what you. Want before you even know that. So when you the leverage that with the capabilities of absorb, I think it makes a lot of sense and then to the earlier point that was brought up I think that's actually key. If you then have the ability to leverage that and bring it into gaming, bring that into Cortina the digital search engine, bring that into being I think the the possibilities are significant. So it it certainly makes a lot of sense obviously, the stock market rewarded Microsoft today and you've added more than. The top valuation in Microsoft's Market Kaplan. Is. There a risk though that that tiktok is the next snap in that snap has run into user growth issues and monetization issues or is finding a home in Microsoft good to going to sorta bypass that possibility is outcome. It's a fair point, but you almost have a free call option if you're searching. You have the ability to go ahead and acquire the asset potentially on the cheap, and if you think about it, you've got one party Microsoft, which is potentially the only party that's available to acquire something of this size with with with regulatory concerns, and if you've got tiktok on the other side there, obviously desperate from a seller perspective. So valuation short plays part of it, and then strategically if you think about the ability to go ahead and integrate. Integrate technology into the Microsoft Stack statues getting a free look at not only can potentially accelerate growth drivers of his existing business. He then has a free call option on expanding the total addressable market to go ahead and think about competition versus facebook getting snap. It's ever
Reopening Schools Amid COVID-19: What to Expect This Fall
"There any way to have in person instruction in schools this fall for with some number of students for you know some number of days a week in certain parts of the country what what is the outlook for that? Yeah. I look. I've got two young kids in school and working with schools and other people across the country. Let let me just say one thing at a on the. Top. There is no for for also we we just do not understand enough about this virus in children T- period, and so to say that we do to be candidates arrogant we just don't know enough having said that Josh I think that there are going to be ways to do what I would say hybrid I. Certainly think that if you're in one of the thirty nine states that's experiencing these surges and. Reverse and trends you really should be thinking about remote learning in the next four to six weeks meaning you should not be sending your children in person and especially as we're doing more testing of younger children and adults I think that we are going to see even more cases that cause us to pause on personal learning but there are going to be regions where you see incredibly low rates and they are. Consistent with a decrease in growth in some parts, and you could consider some sort of learning. It will look different and it will not be fulltime education which leaves working parents such as myself in a lurch. So that's one issue. But from an educational standpoint, there will be ways to do this smaller CA-. It's all the things we haven't really done in education. So we'll have to try it's new smaller cohorts. risk-based, not just thermal testing because that's only gonNA, help you so much when it's one hundred degrees in Arizona but having some sort of symptom assessment knowing that children might not have any symptoms and be positive. So we're going to a- I absolutely enforce either masks or some sort of alternative face shields and we just need to get comfortable with that I. think adults are less comfortable than children are and they will adapt their incredibly adaptive. So I do think it's possible but I will say Josh I'm troubled time I talked with school whether it's a large public school in a superintendent or a small private school principal. All of them have unanimously said, we have had no contact with our local health departments. They're too busy and it's too hard to create that connection and without that connection Josh I fear that we will end up making things

"Welcome to film spotting, we will get to our Nolan Review Awards. Later in the show, we might have an for those awards picked out by. Then we might not. We will share our awards for favourite supporting performance and lead performance from this retrospective of the work of Christopher Nolan will also share our picks for best Nolan moment in the overall best moment or seen after we have revisited all ten of Nolan's films and that will culminate with our Christopher Nolan rankings. The definitive Christopher ranking for each of us one to ten will there be some shifting Adam Gimme a tease. Shifts definitely from the last time, I posted a Nolan ranking on letterbox. There's been some movement Yep me too one I think you'll like I don't know if you'll like it enough, but you will like it I though the World War Two movie from Christopher Nolan that we didn't know we needed dunkirk. The enemy tanks stop. Why? Why waste precious tanks when they can pick from the. Barrel. Their full hundred thousand men only speech. Your position. Josh, coming into this rewatch was that done kirk is Christopher, Nolan's best film and there's at least one longtime listener and regular commentator who agrees with you that we are culminating this overview triumphantly with the filmmakers greatest achievement Adam Grossman in Vancouver says like many of us. I've completed my Christopher Nolan Review. Biggest takeaway hoover is a really hard were dispel. Well, second takeaway. I've decided dunkirk is Nolan's career highpoint while my heart loves interstellar the most good on you Adam and I. Hugely Admire. and. The Dark Knight for what they meant to Action Cinema and Superhero movies respectively dunkirk is his masterpiece got laid down for you tenant. I just don't know how anyone could argue that the legend of dunkirk could be told any better the setup and the first eight minutes alone from the falling paper from the sky to the distress. Cry of where's the bloody air force is a wonder of a short film. In itself, the lack of dialogue works perfectly for what this movie wants to achieve with. Hans. Zimmer's relentless scored doing all the audio work that's necessary among all the chaos. There are frequent moments of grace. Kenneth. Branagh face as Commander Bolton as the cavalry arrives in the form of the civilian vessels the empathy as Peter Tells Killian Murphy's PTSD soldier. The young George will be okay and no moment more than the shot. Be Okay and no more than a shot of Tom Hardy's planes silently gliding over the beaches of dunkirk knowing his job has been done. dunkirk is also uniquely Christopher Nolan Movie One where his signature use of time has never melded together better and more cohesively than it does in the final twenty minutes of this film while Dunkirk will understandably never be a wholly enjoyable or easy rewatch. It's one that gets richer and richer with repeat viewing. Now, Adam Mention Nolan signature use of time, and that is one aspect of dunkirk among others that certainly connects to his entire body of work. But there are other aspects that Mark Dunkirk is unique. It is only film that is based on historical events, which means it is inherently rooted in the past and yet I'd argue it is only film that truly feels present tense meeting there are no. Dead parents or wives or forsaken children or other tragic events haunting the air's barrier played by Tom. Hardy the Moles Army private Tommy fiene whitehead or for the most part the sees Mr Dawson played by Mark Rylance like all Nolan protagonist there's plenty of personal sacrifices on display but no guilt no sense of futility about toning past actions just the seemingly futile need to survive the current event that they. Are Tragically experiencing here's something else that argues unique about dunkirk as we every other commentator on Dolan's work is discussed in some form or fashion for all those dead parents and wives and foresaken children. There's nothing so emotional or borderline sentimental in any of his previous films as the climax of inception and yes, mileage may vary there which led to interstellar and not only mcconaghy's crushing breakdown watching twenty three. Years Worth of miss video messages from his family but the verbalize message love is the one thing we're capable of proceeding that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that even if we can't understand it, it's hard to imagine any character in previous Christopher Nolan movies saying something like that which led to Dunkirk am I crazy josh this is his most blatantly sentimental and even heart film. And if so is that what establishes Dunkirk as his best its balance of coldness the sober portrayal of the hell of war of life in the misguided choices, some men will make when facing death with warmth. In the compassionate inspiring choices some men will make to maintain a way of life. So a lot of subtleties in that question and you're onto something so you're not crazy I think I would distinguish. The word blatantly, I. Don't think this is blatantly emotional or moving, but I do think you're onto something in the fact that it is maybe his most heartwarming in where it ends up and let me kind of try to parse those. You're right as long as the Nolan Canon has convulsing McConnell. Interstellar is going to be his most blatantly emotional I mean you can't have a scene like that without registering that on it surface. That's his most emotional movie. But I will also say that I find Dunkirk to be his most emotionally affecting movie maybe even more. So than inception, which we about how I did find that very moving especially in the character of Mal. So yet dunkirk is really a unique thing even as it's working within the strands and trends that we have been tracing in Nolan's other films, I. Think the heartwarming aspect is probably a part of that. You've nailed it there in that it brings us to a place that. Is One of Constellation and I think it's earned because I think up until that point we have just been suffering alongside all of these other characters in so many ways and we've also been recognizing as the movie does that this is You know a an account of a military failure, a huge defeat and so for the movie to kind of offer, some sort of solace at the end of that I think is. In proportion and well
Austin Jochum on Bringing the Training Session to Life
"So why? Want to say this. So how it was there a better way to spell your last name then or would there be like Italic so I can have people pronounce it correctly when they read the headline here. Yeah everybody thinks like it's A. Job looks like Josh right here. But if you have really gonNA spell, we probably with a Y Y Y. Que you or something like that since last name just totally jacked up. The I I'm not GonNa lie when saw I think maybe it was when you asked me to. Be On your podcast dry your podcast before I thought it was Josh. So I apologize I just wrote in my little notes I put. Okay You M. so hopefully that eleven maybe that'll resolve things a little bit. So just for everyone out there that'll. Thousand my that was my iteration. And that's where we just have to get to a point as a coach and a company where people in the not to say. That's one of our goals. People say Yoga the right way yeah. Yeah. That'd be good. Creative Project Austin. So I know one of the things that I really like about looking at your work is I. Know that want to know you're really creative coach always love I know this is GonNa be an awesome talk and I was curious you did football I think track a you're into strengthening conditioning. What what was your formation in your years as a college athlete and then your choice to become the type of coach that you are now? Yeah and I think it's funny that you say I'm a creative coach because as a player I was anti creative like from from the very day one. Started lifting in high school with Olympic lifts like straight. Olympic. Style. Monday Wednesday Friday, all we did was clean and jerk clean snatch, and then maybe some bench presents watts and just the differ variation of that and. I mastered swore by those for so many years. That's literally the only thing I ever did. If. We sprinted if we did anything maybe some ladders we did but. The entire program was Olympic lifts swear by it was awesome in highschool got really strong at that. Thought that was the answer. When into my first year college at Saint Thomas Football Kaikan on the field first day we actually lifted before we went on the field we lifted and I was like smoking these guys like smoking on cleaner jerk like doing. More than a lot of seniors on their all I'm here I arrived I'm sweet a freshman. Football, we go to the practice that day and I I my mind was blown I had no idea was happening speed the game was different. Everything was different I'm move to like a robot out on the field and just moved terribly and I started the. To all right, what's happening in the weight room is not what's happening on the field and I need to find a way to bridge that gap and that started the full journey and I think it is a journey because then it was west side stuff on my. All right not the Olympic stuff. Now it's west side. Now it's the powerlifting. Now it's some box. Johnson plow metrics advance to my are still stuck in that weight reminds set of. Bands the bar now GonNa be faster and it helped a little bit I moved just a little bit better. But I think we're just because I was destroying my body a little bit less than the weight room and I still a little bit slower on the field and it was just this journey than it was bilateral to single lateral. Then it was traffic training and this this full hodgepodge of things but never fully breaking out of the weight room mindset never breaking into the movement onset and by the time graduated. At Saint Thomas I had some athletic success on the field and. But it was in a way of I forced myself into a mold of athletic success. I plays Nose Guard and my movement options were very small and I was watching other players and I was doing a job that was required to do doing his thing. I'm field that is required to do but the game move fast for me everything move fast for me I had. Very little movement options I had one may maybe one pass rush move and I was good at the pass rush move. But I didn't have a lot of options people next left and right and me that works out in quotation worked out a lot less than me that they had way more options and that's really where I started to dive into how can I get more movement options for myself? How can I move better? How can I give my athletes the ability to? Now that you have a huge output, you're able to lift a bunch of weight. You're able to sprint really really fast to do all these things. How can we give you options to do this? How can we give you? Can we slow the game down a little bit for you and that's Kind of a little bit of where we started the journey of where Rats Day and hopefully the journey continues for the next ten to fifteen years I can look back at this podcast. About Austin but that's kind of the
The First Gene-Altered Squid Has Thrilled Biologists
"Some of the weirdest creatures on the planet are CEPHALOPODS, animals like squids and octopuses. Now, in the Journal current biology scientists say they've managed to tinker with the jeans of pod in the lab NPR's Nell. Greenfieldboyce, reports on why a gene-altered squid is such a big deal. Read Grassi's official job title is manager of Cephalopod Operations when I recently visited the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole Massachusetts, he showed me around a room full of burgling tanks. So we've got our beautiful flamboyant cuttlefish. We've got our straight pajamas squids. These ones are native to. Australia. We've got our. Church, which is the pygmies zero octopus, their native to Nicaragua very small octopus species that doesn't get much larger than a table grape. The work here involves everything from the very latest high tech gene editing tools to a bucket of rocks sitting on the floor the rocks are used to make habitats in the tanks and two way down the lids. So octopus are notorious for being able to escape out of their enclosures. These critters have sophisticated brains that look nothing like our own. They can solve puzzles, change their skin color in a flash and travel using jet propulsion Josh. Rosenthal is a researcher at the Marine Biological Laboratory. He says, these animals evolved completely independently from us, their relatives or. Things like clams in this provides an opportunity to compare them with us and see what elements are in common and what elements or you need. The problem is there's been no way to modify their genes and being able to do that is really important. Most lab biologists study just a few species like mice and fruit flies because the gene editing technologies for them have been all worked out. This makes it easy to study genes role in behavior, disease and treatments, but none of that was available for cephalopods. So Rosenthal and his colleagues have been building those tools I using a squid that lives in the waters around woods hole a researcher named Karen Crawford had figured out how to fertilize. Its eggs in the lab. So the team did that and then injected gene altering materials it wasn't easy. The fertilized egg is surrounded by a tough almost rubbery coating for months we have needles break. We couldn't figure out how they get it, but they finally did it and turned off a pigmentation gene that normally makes small dark spots on the squids skin. Those spots are missing on the altered baby squid pigment genes are easy because you can see them. Right. You can see if it's working as things develop Kerry Alberton is a member of the research team she says for her this is a game changer. This is something that honestly if you ask me five years ago if we'd. Be Able to do I would have just giggled and said I dream of it but you know I didn't think it would be possible and yet here we are other Squid Biologists or equally thrilled Sarah McNulty's with the University of Connecticut. She says, it's incredibly impressive that they've gotten this to work. This was like a huge advancement for staff upon researchers all over the wrong. We should all be pop bottles of Champagne. This is amazing. She says this particular squid can't live long term a lab it just gets too big but she says it's proof of what's possible and the researchers are already working with smaller creatures. They haven't those tanks to alter genes and them to Nell Greenfieldboyce NPR news.
Big tech CEOs testify before Congress
"CEOs of the four biggest tech companies testified before the House Anti Trust subcommittee today to review the tech giant's business practices. Heads of Apple, Facebook, Google and Amazon have been answering questions as lawmakers continue to find ways to rethink federal antitrust laws for more key CBS News anchors anchors Jeff Jeff Bell Bell and and Patty Patty Rising, Rising, spoke spoke with with tech tech expert expert Josh Josh Constantine, Constantine, a a venture venture capitalist capitalist was was signal signal fire fire Josh. Josh. One One of of the the things things that that struck struck me me watching watching this this morning morning was was the the scope scope of of the the questioning, questioning, it it seemed seemed to to veer veer far far from from just just antitrust antitrust issues. issues. Absolutely. Absolutely. These These senators senators who who shall shall we we spend spend most most of of their their allotted allotted time time just ranting and trying to come up with spicy sound bites to rile up their base. There's very little of the time actually asking the questions and when they did, they ranged into conspiracy theories like anti conservative bias on social media as well. It's fears about China and how U. S. Tech companies are furnishing technology for the Chinese government. What is at stake here, Josh? I mean, what is the endgame for Congress today? Do they have specific proposals in mind? Absolutely. There are a number of major antitrust cases in the works Right now the government is levying against these companies. They deal with Amazon being uncompetitive against other partners that cell on its marketplace. Google showing its results for its own products above other Internet companies and competitors, Facebook buying companies and copying them instead of competing fairly on its own on DH Apple, using its APP store. Give to take a massive cut of revenue from APP developers. Okay, So if we look at this is political theater at the risk of being a little cynical here any outstanding performances today, either from the CEOs or from members of Congress. You know, I don't really want Oh, deemed the senators and representatives actions worthwhile. They wasted so much of their time and could have gotten real answers for the American people. So they don't really deserve to be. Ah, applauded for grandstanding. I do think that some of the major points Included the reveal that there were emails showing that Mark's October talked about you buying instagram as a way to take out a major competitors to neutralize the competitive threat, and that could Beats of the reopening of the case about whether the instagram the acquisition by Facebook for a $1,000,000,000 should have been allowed on whether Facebook and Instagram should be broken apart. If you handicap things. Which of the should one of these big companies be disassembled into little pieces? What do you think Which company would be the most likely Google's businesses range the widest span of different areas. Amazon is by far the most powerful. I think in the U. S economy right now, But Facebook is certainly the one with the most political. Will they get the most questioning the most iron from the public. And so I think that they're the biggest political football for representatives to kick If they can break up Facebook. They can say that they were a champion to their people, even though it might not solve a major problem of Facebook because its scale actually helps it to prevent foreign election interference in some of the other problem. So it's hard to say which will have the most regulation levied upon it, But we're definitely seeing more and more political will to do something against companies. And that's tech expert Josh Constantine, a venture capitalist with SIGNAL Fire. Fire.

Thanks for having me I've been looking forward to this and hoping to have you on the show for so many years now, and we've had many different points of connection. But of course, it began with our mutual friend and also popular PODCAST Gas Josh. Wait, skin who is known you for a very long time. Indeed, he has a quote in fact that is Impreza praise of your book chess for success and it goes as follows Maurice Ashley. Has Been like a brother to me since I was twelve years old I know the man I know the competitor I know the artist no, the teacher there's a lot of train for us to cover a lot of Nixon crannies to explore but I thought we would begin with Maurice the Jamaican and I was hoping you could describe for us your beginnings and we could start with the with the genesis while yes I was born in Jamaica. Island. Not the area of Quaid's and I grew up there. I was there until I was twelve years old before I came to this country. But probably, the most significantly got happened for me in. Jamaica. Was the fact that my mother left Jamaica to come to the United. States, when I was two years old, my brother was ten. My sister was seven months old and. Opportunity to come to the US, she couldn't bring all of us at the same time. Cheech only bring herself. And her leaving was really quite an event in our lives. My father wasn't with us but living with us at the time. So we grew with our grandmother. and My mother would send. down. Stuff supplies to Jamaica Whether v Foodstuffs Flour and rice she sent him in a barrel and she said, well, she said notebooks in armor sending like a softball and a glove, and of course Jamaica. Nobody played softball baseball nothing. So I threw the glove to the site, not knowing what to do with it and use the softball as a soccer ball. Got Pretty warned down already quickly a really turn into a softball very quickly to that. But. We just being raised by my grandmother she was a teacher by training. And so she would teach us so much as young people. So we were really well prepared educationally because of my grandmother and she was sixty four years old at the time of my mother left the imagined a sixty, four year old having had seven children for own. Now suddenly taking on the care of her daughter's children at that age when thinking about maybe slowing down and retiring enjoying herself. But for the next year, she took care of us and I was really a hugely significant part of growing up living there. Until finally my mother got the resources in the paperwork through green and finally bring us to the United States.
Kelly Reichardt First Cow
"Welcome to film spotting back in early March one of the most anticipated films of the year for US Josh Kelley, records first cow finally came to theaters, and then less than two weeks after its release the COVID nineteen pandemic force, the nation's movie theaters to close along with just about everything else meeting that most people never got a chance to see it. It it wasn't quite the last movie I saw pre pandemic. The penultimate I think I fit in birds of prey, just after I scout, that sounds right and man, my so grateful we were able to get first cow, because to have to sit for a few more months without seeing it as many people had, that would have been tortuous. Yeah, the pandemic. Records plans to come to Chicago when we were scheduled to sit down with her for an interview fast forward now to July first cow is now finally available to rent on demand, and we got a chance to talk to Kelly Reicher by phone later in the show will revisit our first cow review from back in March and hopefully more of you have had a chance to catch up with it now that it is available to rent I though it is our conversation with Kelly Reichardt in addition to first cow. Films include 2016 certain women that starred Kristen Stewart Laura, dern and her frequent collaborator Michelle Williams before that she offered us night moves that was about a trio of radical environmentalists, one of those played by Jesse Eisenberg and she gave us of course meek's cutoff. Which I think is still her masterpiece in Oregon trail set. Film that yeah, a lot of people consider among the very best of the last decade Wendy and Lucy was the film before that one. This was a doomed road trip movie again with Williams, and then the first film that I saw of Hers Atom I think you as well two thousand six's old joy, that one like I call centers on male friendship records debut film river of grass that came out back in nineteen, ninety four for first cow reichert return to the Pioneer Era Pacific northwest setting of Meek's cutoff. Cutoff for a tale of unlikely friendship capitalism, and yes, oil leaks in the movie, a cook from the east to play by John McEnroe joins a group of for trappers Oregon there. He meets Orion lease King Liu a Chinese immigrant, the to become friends and set out on a risky business venture together. Also, there is a cow. It's the first cow in the area. Josh indeed floating down the river in one of the movies more memorable images I'd say absolutely. Let's get to that conversation with Kelly Reicher now. Call me cookie. Mother died when I was born, and then my father died. I never stopped moving. It's a good thing stopped at the puzzle. No way for women to stop. have account cow in the. same place for cows. That's no place for white men. He's A. Since virginity here. Kelly thanks so much for coming back on spotting. It's great to have you nice to be here in virtually exactly so josh and I have both spoken very very favorably of the film, actually our favorite film of the year so far between us, and we both talked about it as almost a parable, a movie that in a story that seemingly very simple, the kind that maybe could even be passed down orally, and without any heavy-handedness or easy moralizing impart. Truths are we on the right path? Do you see I cal that way? I'm. A visual person so. Making it is a audible story I. How came from Jonathan Raymond's novel? The half life. I I'd have to think about it. I haven't thought about it in those terms of course moist thinking about it in images. Yes, so When you say. It's your favorite film. I don't know why you have to qualify it and say so far to stop watching other things. But seems fair. That seems fair. I'm sure you're like A. I think all those qualities topping out exist? I just yeah. I haven't thought about it. In terms that of course I I think maybe a better way to phrase that would have been if if you think about it and I know that this sounds almost like it's simplifying, but whether or not you think about this project, or any other is in terms of imparting kind of lesson, or is there. Is there some? Is there something you were trying to teach to the audience? No No. No I don't think so. I mean I. Know I would not want to think in those terms I mean I hope it has. Layers to it that there's things to think about and Questions to ask as far as. I mean ultimately I think like to focus on the friendship and kept blake quote in the beginning. That's in John's. Novel to remind myself that ultimately are making a film about friendship, and there are these teams of capitalism and You know running through out the new the but It has to be considered like just figuring out how to do seem sort of. Where the power lies in a scene, so it's not like I'm not thinking about those things, but I'm Only, in terms of how they relate to cooking, King Lou not in terms of. Some world message or cheek I World should not be being taught from me. That's for sure.
"josh" Discussed on Curious with Josh Peck
"Pooch cake is a little different though. You'RE ONE OF THOSE ONSIDE. Kicks you know who? Yeah Yeah did you get to wear different shoes? Did your soccer cleats? I had a I had of course the one shooter on my on my left which was my foot that does not kick which is what everybody else on. The team was wearing and I had a Samba Sambas. Sure Soccer Sama's that was my Go-to For All my right foot interesting guy. Yeah what are people fucking up? What annoys you most about people who are about to buy or sell a house? Well look I think that you should spend the time. If you're going to buy a house you should spend the time researching yourself to really understand what you want Because that way that will make our job a lot easier and we'd be a lot more effective if we know exactly what you want. You've done some market research yourself Stanley. A lot of people don't have time to do that. So that's cool. What is cool? Is that now with all of these different? Apps out there and websites you're able almost to find houses without me except you want me to negotiate that deal because the fact is where you might able to see. Oh well I know because of Zillow I know what other houses I wanNA see right now. Which you don't know. Is that houses on the wrong side of the street. They're about to knock the house down Next door which you want no because I represent the developers you're going to be living next to a construction site for two years that's where the expertise comes in what we're doing. It's not rocket science. But if you're the best of the best you're GonNa know all of those things but what are you like? Are there any things? You're taking someone down a deal and they bail and it just kills you for like certain people overly emotional is there. Is there a blind spot for most people where you're like you are letting this sabotage? What is best for you? Yeah so high. So like I've seen deals I've seen deals fall apart over couches. Like a three million dollar house egos gotten involved. They wanted them to leave the couch in the living room. They said screw off. We're not leaving this couch and next thing you know the deals dead and I'm like what is wrong with you so a lot times. By the way I've bought more couches in washers and dryers than anyone on the planet. Yeah do you do that? When do you give up some of your commission to make sure the deal goes so I you know not not often unless it's at the end of the day I do what's best for my client and so if it means I gotTA throw in a couple of bucks for a Washer Dryer to make sure the deal doesn't die? Of course. It's worth my time to do that? As opposed to doing another deal in starting from zero again. But you know you get what you pay for you go in for surgery. You don't You know meet with the doctors and decide to go with the cheapest you go with the best. So you're going to get what you pay for but also what I'm seeing is You know in kids coming out of college. I want to be in real estate. And they see all these shows right million dollar listing or any of these other shows and Go Oh that's great. I Love I. Don't Wanna be rich because I liked the car that dross jaw drives or something like that and then I get emails. I get one thousand emails a week. People who want to come work for us and it's like an nine hundred of them are. Hey I I wanna work for you because I want to be rich and I WANNA work in Beverly Hills and this like you have one opportunity to email me right and that's what you're emailing me like everything in the world. You just want to do what I do. Because you wanna be rich like what are you talking about and so it's disappointing? Seeing how lazy the next generation is coming at school. I get emails sometimes like randomly. I'll have a business email that goes to management and whatnot but I've accessed to it too so I'll look at times and people will be like. Hey can you help me get into modeling a model and I WANNA start a modeling career? And they won't attach their photos. Fucking idiot Mike. We're some photos. Kills me and like like. Don't worry like I've got the photos if you if you email me back. I'm like oh I need to another stay with you like. When did you hope that I be on my God? You are so striking looking. I must represent you. Whatever do that because I'm actually looking for some modeling gigs? Only for he Hebrew schools so boats child for that. It's perfect it's perfect. Yeah yeah absolutely. I'll send you through my bar Mitzvah. So how many people do you have worked for you? Now I gotTa vow all in all where whereabouts. So what's that like right because you go from and this is an interesting thing and it's in a lot of different businesses and I always go. I always talk about it when you go from the writer to the show runner role right so in theory. You're you're a lieutenant but inevitably you're not a mover of people but you're very good at what you do and then you get elevated to the show runner job which is like the big exciting job. But now you're in charge of people like yeah now you're managing people so Half of my day is managing the other. You know eighteen agents You gotta you gotTa have a specific type of personality to be successful at that you got to want to be in that position so I know people who have teams underneath them that don't manage at all because they just don't like it and they can't do it But I'd like doing it. I think everybody who works for me is is one of a kind and has the potential to be huge. Which is why they work for me. Which is why we go through a process finding the right people so I find that. It's worth the time to put in because my agents pound for pound. I think we're the best team on the planet period and I'll put them up against anybody so if they need my help. Closing deals good. Let's do it because they also make money off of them right. Yeah is there now. You have like a family in two kids and the whole thing and I would imagine that to level of balancing especially with his obsessed as you are with your work and were prior to that but is there a level of like Like kids got a soccer game but I got to close this deal. Yeah well it's It's definitely a balance and it's definitely unbalanced right now. I'm not going to sit on this Podcasts at it's perfect to kids. And now I I know the meaning of life. It's easy it's impossible. Yeah impossible running a successful business and being as good as far as I can be my wife and I struggle with that. It's she works. Runs my office with me. So it's tough. We're in a twenty four seven job. It's a lifestyle job so there's a lot of things we miss but we do our best to be everywhere. Good news is these days all I need a cell phone and I can close as many deals anywhere in the world that I want But you know it's it's it's definitely balanced but you have to pick out certain times like for the last decade. I never shut off. My phone was picked up no matter what but now that I have two kids like. I'll pick out a time from six to fifteen. Yeah is six to seven every night. I don't answer my cell phone and it's because that's the moment because even though it's not a lot of time being with my kids every day they get a hundred and ten percent of me for that hour and it's so valuable and I will say you know having my daughter. Hug Me and tell me she loves me the great experience in the world. It's way better than closing one hundred million dollar deal. It's not even close. You realize that it's not all about the money. Trust me. I used to be the flashiest guy in town. But it's not about that. There's so much deeper stuff. And what's interesting is my clients have come to respect me more now that. I have kids and they actually when I say hey I gotta call you back. It's bath time for my kid like. Oh I'm so sorry I called you. Call me back no big deal. We'll talk later on before it was like where are you. Why don't you pick up the phone? What are you doing? It's it's almost switched right crazy so like if you don't have kids just hire them. Yeah just get someone pregnant. So what's what's a normal day. Look like for you now. It's since I since I've had kids you gotTa Kinda figure out your day a lot. A Lot Down to the minute better than it used to be so. I'm up at like five thirty. Hit the gym for an hour workout. Get that done. My kids get up. I try to take my daughter to school every day as much as possible That's like our moment in the morning when we're together and we have some quality time drop-off head to the office You know I'm on showings. I'm showing ten houses day On average Open houses You know then I deal with some other stuff. Like endorsement deals for real estate stuff Speaking engagements you know once once every ten in another city speaking but in and out like fly in drive from the airport to the venue speak drive back to the airport. Come back back in the day when I was single. It was you know it. Stay another day in the city or something just because I didn't have to rush back for the kids But yeah otherwise it's wheeling and dealing all day and it doesn't stop negotiating. I'll be negotiating deals tonight till eleven o'clock. I mean it just is what it is but I like it keeps me going like I have friends that you know. We'll go out to dinner and my former wing and I'll walk out and my wife and the other couple be sitting at the table. They know I'm not going back. Yeah no Chato Cheese Josh. He's not coming back and they don't care they get. It's not rude. They understand what they're working with. Great the relationship. You're in the bid. So she gets it. Yeah like Yeah my wife is is incredible and she understands you know the demands of just that it's on the nine to five. You know my work and so sometimes. I throw a curve balls but then there are other time she was like if you look at that fucking phone. Oh Yeah it's funny so since we've gotten know each other so they're very few people that have been on camera longer than I have so I I like so we're season twelve. Just react right right. So That's twelve years. Ten months a year of filming. I Dunno Seinfeld friends like not many shows make it twelve years. You not only were all star but then now you're always on camera.

"The car you drive the suit you wear the watch where the way you talk the way you walk the way you move where you go everything so if you take that seriously. Why would somebody else take seriously? How much are you trying to think for your client and their respective like you know? We're we're emotional right. In many cases of people that are buying the house or emotional and I feel like what I've noticed real estate agent to I. Respect is that they are walking that fine line of saying listen. This is your house. If it's all right I'm not gonNA push you into it but also you might not know what's best for you and I'm the one who knows that there's never been a house like this for the last five years. This is the exact how she wants. And there probably won't be another one for five years so pay a little more because it will benefit you. It's funny you get to a place in your career where earlier in the career. You don't do that because you don't really have the guts to do that. You don't have the the background to sound like you should sound when you say something like that. You gotTa have the track record however you get to a point in your career when you realize folks. I'm not saying this to be cocky but I'm the best at what I do. You gotTa Trust me here. This is not a small game. There's a long game. This is one of many investments. We're going to do over the rest of your life. I understand this is the biggest purchase In Your Life and probably ninety nine point nine percent of people's biggest investment. You've got to trust me here. This is what I do so you do pushing it's interesting. People don't know what they want most of the time they think they know. Oh WanNa live in Brentwood and I wanNA spend. There's I want this style and the next thing you know you're selling them something in the Hollywood hills totally different style so you gotTa really feel him out and sometimes it takes a couple of days a couple of weeks to understand wait. They don't even know what they want. Now I'm gonNA switch into a gear where I'm GonNa take this over and that's what you do and so you you know. Flip the first department. And what's the ascension? Look like as far as like from there to when you really starting to hit his stride in in real estate like we just kidding. Wow now I mean look took that money that two hundred grand. We rolled into a seven hundred thousand dollar connor. We did the same thing but this time it took six months. We made another couple hundred grand than we did. Another in another in about fifteen deals later. we ended up Taking all the money out because we felt like we were the best at what we do and we went. We bought a giant mansion. My brother and I and that was one week before the economy collapsed. Two thousand eight to the mid two thousand seven she and so so we were. We were millionaires by the h twenty. Six and we were flat broke by the age of twenty six and a half well but all your money in this house. It's now fell what I mean. How much how shall we sold service about four million dollars? It sold for about half price and that was the like two million or so dollars that we had in cash that we were so confident. We put into this house and it was gone so very quickly. We went from that mansion too. You know that there's anything wrong with duplex but there is when you live in a mansion And we went back to their started from zero. And that was that so. There's a lot of highs and lows a lot of learning experience. Thank God I was just a single guy at that time. I don't have kids like I do now. Because there'd be a lot more pressure but I'll never forget that learning experience and I'm a lot more careful now when it comes to money and and I think things through a lot. You know a lot better than I probably used to Helen Long. Does it take to recover from a loss like that Few years for sure and emotionally to like a you like a year. I was knocked out for a year. What did you do to be honest with you? It was it was tough. I didn't even talk about this for a long time but I got. I got really depressed from the little time we've known each other. You know you know go. I go to the gym every morning. A workout good high energy ever this and that like I didn't get out of bed for year light all my friends that I was successful because I was embarrassed that I wasn't successful in more screwed up every relationship I mean it was a dark time for me and Eventually it took about a year to to get out of that and it took a lot of other failed potential businesses that I started that I also failed in to get back out of that so I kept in trying to dig myself out. Eventually we ended up going the route of becoming a real estate agent in two thousand eight Because one of my mentors which I always talk about one of my mentors said you know. Stop doing that. Try to get rich. Quick thing that's not what it's about. What are you guys love? And it's funny because matinee when we were broke. We used to drive around on Sundays and look at open houses. That was our favorite thing to do during the week. That was it right and We told them our our guy were sitting with our mentor. And he's like well. You should be real estate agents clearly. You love doing that do that. And you know eventually you'll be successful and that's what we did in the first six months. I sold nothing. You know. Everybody's like Oh you must have been a rock star right now so nothing. I finally after six months did one deal is one point six million dollar piece of land and the next year. I got a little better started reaching out to everybody in my sphere. You know all my friends my parents friends and everybody just I literally had a sign on me on my forehead saying I'm a realtor I told everyone in the world what I do and I did three deals next year and then the next year after that I saw you know like fifty million then one hundred million two hundred million. We sell about five hundred million year now but it wasn't overnight either time And you know you gotta go through the process. Is there anything to that? You can really pinpoint to say like a lot of real estate. Agents are good at this this and this known as good at this as I am. I'm an animal. I'm an aggressive aggressive animal. Nobody fights for their clients money better than I do. I will fight for every penny and I treat my clients money like treat my own. Nobody does that to me. This is a game of chess. You're playing Bobby Fisher and I will fuck you up but what part of it is chess. The all of it from day one there is an entire process. And you have to think outside the box you have to be two steps ahead of everybody else. I mean that's really what separates me is I I. I don't sleep at night. I'm going through the deal. Fifteen different ways to figure out a way where I'm GonNa Win for my client. That's what it is is there. You know because like the things that I've looked at are not exactly on the fifty million dollar level we're valley and for most people right. It's a million dollar or less property right and so the swing in the wind is not like what we see on on the show which is like it was listed fifteen but we got it at thirteen five like saved a million and a half for the best right. Yeah it's an eight hundred thousand. Maybe you get it for seven fifty dollars a big win by the way that fifty or twenty or fifteen grand means just as much if not more to those people so when I sell an eight hundred thousand dollar condo which people are like. Oh you saw that too. Yeah we sell everything when I saw an eight hundred thousand dollar condo. I'm fighting for seven thousand bucks because I know that that seven is GonNa make a huge difference to my client right. The difference of being prequalified or not prequalified. But when they see me do that yet. Not Everything we you know. Sell his twenty million dollars and we understand that when I do something like that. I have a client for life when I saved them seven grand. Because they're gonNA come back when they're ready to sell. It's just as important as a field goal. Kicker right and ex field goal kicker always kick the ball the same if it's a fifty our field goal or extra point..

"These when you work in it like in the mail room at the firm and the firm at the time was like one of the one I mean it just wasn't music management. It was filmed television so funny so you knew that like they represented pony shoes and clothes DiCaprio Alec Baldwin. Yes who was it was? It wasn't Michael Ovitz was it. No it was Yarn Rick Yarn. Your who's still DiCaprio's biggest people in the world and Green Peter Cats Guinea Peter Cast is major music guy Oh Jeff Kwatinetz owned it got it and he was Michael Jackson sky and Yeah Tha- Tha- as quick as it exploded successfully. I guess a couple years later or three or four years later it fell apart and everybody went their own way. So it's very high and low but when you're asking these bigwig sort of music manager she respect out to lunch. Are they looking at you? Like why the intern talking to me? Oh the they're like who in my firing who allowed this kid to talk to me to even ask me to lunch right that that was the point. Where and I learned this from my brother coming up in that business. Doing the same thing it was like you. GotTa Take Shot. You may get fired. I mean my brother worked for Ovitz Minute and I remember. My brother used to sleep in the office sometimes just on his couch to make sure that he was there. First and like if the mail the mail found out about it and it was like you're fired and then somebody higher up was like no. Actually we like his work ethic he got pushed to be an agent right out of the mailroom. It's a funny world and I'm not in that world anymore thankfully because it's it's a difficult world But yeah no you gotta take shots but people respect at the same way where somebody comes into my real estate office and you know instead of. Hey I saw you on TV. I WANNA be rich. You know which is just bullshit They come in and they're like listen. I will get you coffee. I'll pick up your dry cleaning. I want to work for you for free for a year. I promise you it's the best movie ever. I'm going to do this this this and they show the hustle you. I appreciate that 'cause I did the same thing you can't follow. The rules might get in trouble for this one. You can't all the rules and become successful at the limit at. How can I say this without sounding like an ass saying don't follow the follow the rules? But it's okay to take shots. It's okay to take chances because if you stay in line yeah you may be able to become successful in line throughout the whole process but if you take shot that might be your chance to become successful and skip all the bullshit. No I think that's right and I think for for you know over time we've sort of rewarded this idea of like being sort of the anti rules anti-establishment person and I'm GonNa come in this totally. There's always that great phrase people going like yeah. I'm going to drop out of college because you know what Bill Gates dropped out. And they're like yeah but Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard right right right out of college just simply for the fact that that's the greatest time ever and you will never get that back again. Yes like you don't drop out of college if you don't need to but I think it's important what what's revealed to me in in a lot of successful people that the people who do break the rules no them backwards and forwards. Yeah the people that are comfortable enough to improvise. It's because they know the basics so well that they can then build upon it instead of just taking random shots hoping that perhaps one gets lucky. I will tell you though. Out of the last fifty people are so that I've hired. Never ask them where they went to school. It's so funny. Maybe that's just the way that I do it. It's there either a hustler or not and I can tell when a couple of minutes. I don't care if they went people. Say if if I went to Harvard hire me. I'm actually more what ways more in our business is if you were born here your local and who you know as opposed to. Where'd you go to school? What's your resume and this or that I don't care about any of that stuff because my business is all about connections. Does it does it. Your businesses is like mine in the sense of. There's a low barrier of entry like my my business you. You could be an actor tomorrow just as you said it but with you like the real estate exam is reasonably easy to pass. And then you're real city that's it. Does that annoy you? Well seeing that I failed twice. No you didn't know how you lead study. I'm not kidding. I was a really bad student. I had to take tests on time because I don't know there's a lot of stuff wrong with me right. Add adhd whatever they call it these days But Yeah I had to take things on time so I failed twice the third time I passed the real estate exam clearly. It doesn't mean anything because I've sold four billion dollars worth of real estate now at this point so for those of you listening. It's okay if you fail. You know what I mean. Just take another shot and But yet the entry level real estate agent most people in the world can it? It's just a matter of WHO's actually going a separate themselves and become successful but is there you can. It sounds like you can track a certain level of fearless. Why excited that. I just failed twice. you know. I had your friend Ryan Sirhan on the show. He said if anyone bills the real estate exam fucking higher like that like that but no I mean I like that story to your point like look. You've absolutely utterly crushed it and it wasn't like in the most you know the traditional way. Yeah but yeah I mean like just tracking you being this low level person at this massive agency and you fearlessly asking these people for an hour of their time for lunch all the way now to you being as successful as you are it. Seems like there's been a level of fearlessness in your story that sort of tracked the whole time. The greatest come from well it comes from we actually have a saying in our office and we have it. lit up in What's that called Neon Neon we have a it's called ready fire? Aim and I wrote about this in one of my I think was the second book I know. First Book I wrote called. It's your move and it's ready fire. Aim and it's a mentality that we in the agents. That work for US live by. Which is you gotta take a shot. You gotta see an opportunity when it's in front of you take that shot and if you miss that's okay it's more about how you bounce back so all these people live with this model of. Oh I'm going to take a shot when the time is right. I'M GONNA make sure I'm aimed perfectly and then I'm GonNa go for it. That's not the way to think because by the time you figured out how to aim correctly and take that time somebody else already did it. So what I'm saying is when you see an opportunity in front of you. Go take that shot. What's worse than it's going to happen. You're GONNA get You'RE GONNA get fired or you're not going to get the deal but at least you took the shot. Most people don't take it so and then afterwards learn from your mistakes. Listen I made more mistakes than most people in this business. I mean you have to sell about one hundred fifty houses a year ten years. It's a Lotta houses and so of course. There's going to be a lot of mistakes that I do while I learned but you learn from those experiences and every mistake I make. Every deal is different. You come back a better person. A better agent any big mistake top of mind unfortunately because of the volume that we do in the size of the deals. They're all extremely expensive mistakes. What is a mistake? I mean I mean I have to really break down a deal. But it's like if you screw up something on a contract or a deal dies because you you said the wrong thing. I mean on a ten million dollar house. That's two hundred fifty two hundred and fifty thousand dollar commission. That's gone like you don't come out the gates as hot as you're supposed to because the pictures were screwed up or yeah. They put the wrong price on an autumn marketing material. Little stuff that someone in my office would do. And it's like you want to strangle that person. You just cost me so much money. You don't understand but it happens so mistakes are costly and they're big in our business. What what's the one thing that you like still to this day having had all the success that you do that like if you're walking your car at the end of the day you'll kick yourself for you know I the success that we've had in real estate because we love what we do right. I've I used to be mortgage broker. I used to live homes a lot which I still do. So we. We've done the full gamut of real estate financing at flipping it and now of course selling it at the end of the day. I would do what I do for free in any successful people that you talk to. And I'm with the most successful people on the planet. I mean I have them in the front seat of my Rolls Royce. Showing them fifty million dollar houses. And if you can get a check for fifty million Dollar House. I want to know what you did how you did it. I WanNa learn everything you did because you wanNA level that most people will never get to share. So I'm with these people also and you gotTa love what you do because no matter what there's going to be ups and downs just like a real estate market so you'll be able to weather those storm because every morning you love what you're doing no matter what it's not about the money the money will come with the success but also you got be an expert of what you do. You GotTa Take Pride in it when I decided to break into the high market and really go after these wealthy people the one thing that separated me from everybody else was. I was an encyclopedia of knowledge. When it came to the real estate market that I was in. When you're dealing with a wealthy person time is money you get one shot you screw that up. You are out it. They'll never get that time back for them private. You know we were talking about private jets and stuff at the end of the day. It's a time saver and when you're at a certain amount of wealth all you have the only thing you can't control this time and so I decided that I was going to be an at the time. It was the best agent in the world in the Hollywood hills. And so I- studied it like no one. I mean I was on the MLS. Which is our system. I don't even know how many hours a day I knew. Every House that was going to hit the market. Every house being built every developer in the area everything that sold over the past five years. I was an encyclopedia so when I'm sitting at a restaurant up at the bar drinking water with ice lemon where people think. I'm drinking vodka. 'cause I can't afford the vodka at least when I'm talking to the person next to me. They know I'm no joke. And if they want to know anything real estate on it like that and then of course over time your your areas get bigger than in the best in Beverly Hills or or Bel Air or Brentwood. Whatever it is and then and you know the snowball effect from there. I mean it's a it's a really interesting dynamic with real estate agents especially because I've dealt with the agent who don't look like you and they're more dress down and there's like this casual nature to them and that's me right like I embrace that and yet for some reason when I'm buying something the big the biggest purchase of my life. I don't WanNa do it from a dude in a fucking T. I love this guy. Shot the everybody all the thank you. It's about time it's about time I get fucking recognize. I knew I like this kid from the beginning. I'm allowed to call cake and I'm so much older seriously. It's funny because I came out with that East Coast mentality and when I got a million dollar listing there was a kid in Malibu. Right in flip flops. The Kid was just trust fund kid who wore Gucci slippers which now I work slippers but at the time and then there was me I was like Alma. I'm going to separate myself while I'm not east. Coast Dude You know I was told that if you want respect you show up in a suit. That's how I was brought up. So that's how the first eight years or so on the show. I was always in a suit no matter what right because that was how I separated myself especially when I was younger. Now it's funny. It's very important to marry your client so if you want to go. Look at houses down like Marina del Rey. You know maybe I take off the tie on button a button on the shirt because you got to mirror the the client a little pitch. If it's a professional surfer snowboarder. You know I don't roll up in a suit kind of dress down if it's a C. Ova Fortune five hundred company. The best you've ever seen and I'm business car wash water bottles in the back. I mean you got a mirror the client but I agree with you in our business. You're billboard for your business that's it you're a walking billboard everything you do reflects on you as a realtor..

For about Gosh I want to say a year maybe a year and a half and It's funny because I was always obsessed with having mentors in my life and every time I got a paycheck in the mail room I would put part of it aside and I would. I would use that money to take out the successful music managers that I delivered mail to out to lunch and it was like. Hey let's get an hour your time on buying. Can I please take you out to lunch? And I did. And I would pick their brain during that hour and it was funny because a lot of the people that I spoke to.

I hope you had a great weekend. I did it was my birthday. So it's really nice to hear from all of you. So fish listeners who I received no cards to my PO box that I don't have.

And that whole thing. Which is always always quite kind. Always appreciate it. And it was lovely. And I'm getting old and I'm expiring thirty two. I never thought I'd make it to this age. Not like a cool fatalistic LA thought, I live so hard and die young type thing. I just I just couldn't imagine being like a grownup like an adult like fully adulting with a fucking kid on the way, which is wild. And just mad. Crazy mad crazy as the children say as kiddo say. Yeah, I'm going to be a father, it, certainly, you know, we're not far. I'll just say that not gonna get till you guys exactly when because I feel like there might be a Kook in there that will show up at at the hospital, but we're not far like literally like a number of weeks away from that baby being a citizen of this earth. And oh my God. What things are going to change? Yeah. Probably that's what they say. What every parent does. When you tell them that you're pregnant, they're like hall God. Yeah. Good luck sleep. Now. Fuck you sleep now. Yes. I realized children take your sleep. They do it..

"Between you and this other guy. And I'm like, who's the other guy. I looked up and he was tall and lanky and completely different. And I get a call. About a week later and they say to me, so they're going to go with the other guy and I was like, damn it. And then it occurred to me as I was sitting there thinking about it. And then subsequently when I saw the film that James Cameron took my addition and put it in like the the computer that makes everybody into an avatar and was like, I can't have a fat Smurfit in my movie legless full literally. This will be disastrous. No, I've convinced. And so I told the story on Jimmy Fallon, and I got a call one day for my agent who told me that the Kasim director heard it and basically was laughing saying that that's exactly. Really? Yes. It was just like, oh, wow, he makes a really uncomfortable looking Nabi none niche Stanage would not be accepted. I would. I would sue them body shame. Yup. How dare I know you deserve, Josh, Jim. So you do gym. He's call me. I'm still available for the sequels. I know you're doing about four more. I'm in Sam, I but dammit. Didn't feel fair. Actually. You should be my body double for them. I'll just do the voice. Perfect. Josh and Josh together again, the dream first of all? Yeah. Okay. So last two questions, family. You have kids. I have one on the way and everything that people say is all the things that it's cracked up to me. Give me the good. It is everything. All the cliches are true for, let's get that out of the way. Yeah, the first three to six months are a fucking nightmare, and nobody can prepare you for it. Like the sleep deprivation that you will endure a so unbelievably unfair and painful, and it's good that like you can't physically have another baby for another nine months at the very least because it allows you to forget how awful the experience was those first few months. But it is worth the pain and torture because at on the other side of it, there really is nothing that I value more in my life than my two daughters. I. They are my everything. They give me such joy that makes my heart explode when I get home when I see them when they wake up there kisses their love that all probably change. There will come a point when both of my girls become teenagers and they despise me and I'm not looking forward to that and I'm sort of bracing myself for. But right now the greatest thing in the world. But here's the good part at that age data be powerful, big Hollywood guy, and you can be like, listen girls. If you wanna meet Shawn, Mendez be nice, told dad, maybe I'll pull a favor, get Sean performing your birthday Charente form, although they'll be like who Shawn Mendez at that point because it'll be listening to whoever the younger Shawn Mendez is twenty five deals like Sean Benda's will be like Bono for that. It'll be really weird right here. Like he'll just like go into that. Like Evelyn of like older older heartthrob. Yeah, he's unfairly, talented, you fairly. You know what? I'm. Did you combat this when your wife was pregnant with your first? And I'm dealing with this now where all have friends who have kids and they're all give me this look all haw urine for your in for it. Yeah, I wanna be like, fuck you don't scare me and be a want to say. I'm like, if you can do it, I can do it. Your knucklehead work a UPS like no shame on UPS, but I'm like, trust me, I can fuck and do this. It's look. It is. It's hard for sure it. It's not easy, but it also there's a reason that. It just keeps happening over and over again in history that we keep having babies because you fall into it the first day that I remember putting my child in a car seat. I literally thought that I was going to be the thing that killed her, like I was so terrified of like not doing this right or not doing that right. Or you know, you have to wrap them like a burrito swat. Oh yeah, you have to swallow them and, oh, you've, you've done the classes, you've done the word I'm learning. I never liked. What do you or when you do this CPS the CPR class and you're like, you're so terrified that you're gonna kill this little plastic baby that they give you. And so like you want the the instructor to come and just watch your hands and nobody else's to make sure you do it like five times and record yourself on an iphone as if like if something's actually happening, you're going to be like, wait right there. Baby. Let me open my iphone and take a look at the video revenue saving the plastic baby. So like you go through all of that. My sister. Actually looked at my phone the other day, and she started laughing that I had poison control on my favorites, but I would recommend to every parent put poison control your favorite? Yes, because there was a day that my baby put something in her mouth and I almost had a heart attack being a hypochondriac, and like just googling poison control takes time. Sure. So you're like know, like it's I've been nine one one or poison control ready to go. I want the cops come and take my baby. I need poison control. So you know, it's all those little things. But at the end of the day, you fall into really quick. Well, I'm excited. Okay. Final question. This is something new that I've sort of doing with every guests on the show. I will not take off my clothes. All right. When we can talk about that off Mike, but what are the two or three or one or five, Josh Gad commandments that things that are truths for you, that you would want to give someone that you would want to impress upon people, things that you found to be incredibly important for yourself. This agree questions, Amblin movies should be the foundation of everybody's cinematic journey solid, okay. That includes back to the future that includes Indiana Jones. That also includes Amblin esque movies like. Ghostbusters, but that would be the the first step. When you're when you're starting your film journey, start with those number four, I guess, would be to. Really, really, really be true to yourself and by being true to yourself, it means no, your own self worth and don't take shit from people that are trying to for their own through their own insecurities make you feel less than and that that comes in handy, especially in a field like ours where you have to constantly deal with rejection. Right? So it's about understanding what you're worth and making sure that you you constantly keep that true north on your compass on your moral compass. Number three, I think for me would be to understand your priorities in life and to make sure that the choices that you make are also staying true to what's most important to you at that time. And and a lot of times for all of us, I don't think it's it's true just for what we do. I think it's true in any profession. There's a balance that Americans in. Regular seem to have a hard time with when it comes to committing so much as we do to work, and it's about balancing those moments with your family, especially if you have kids. 'cause damn witnessing. They grow up fast. And so knowing that what that balance is worth. Two, I think would be to understand that you share this world with others. And a lot of times specially with the advent of the this sort of new informational age technological, the technology feat that we've experienced. We're always looking down instead of up. We're constantly in our own world. Remember Patrick Wilson coming to speak to us at Carnegie Mellon. This was back when I was in college and he said, you know, when I'm in New York City, I noticed that that nobody ever looks up at all the beauty around them. They're always looking down in an ornery or angry mood, and it really opened up my eyes to something that has proven truly valuable, which is there's always somebody around you. I make it I, I make it a necessity in my life to just hold the door open for somebody no matter who that. Ersan is in the hope that they will do the same for the next person. And a lot of times it's easy to forget that. And then the number one thing that I would say he is. Have values stand for something our time years. So limited that if it's just really about making money or it's about your own personal sort of journey. You have to ask yourself what you're leaving behind, not only for yourself, but what you're leaving behind as yourself. What is your legacy? What is that thing that you want people to remember you for an make everyday count by virtue of that know that there's specially living through history, which we are all doing right now, which seems like a burden. But in some cases, I think is is a great honour. We get to be the difference makers. We got to do the things that are going to potentially move the needle potentially change the world as a communal experience. So I would say that that is probably might migrate est a paradigm for myself migrates rule. And those are the five hundred. Six I guess for Josh mic drop Josh Gad. God bless you. Thank you. Why bless you? God bless us and shame on your mother. Once again, thanks a lot Barbara. I'm not calling your mom and he listened Barbara baps bats. Having sat here has our with son. There's nobody else who can play Maria, and I'll tell you right. So right now that I'm gonna call Steven Spielberg and tell him that Josh pack is his Maria. Thank you so much. I just mudder Josh named. Well, how about that? Enjoy drink that end podcast listeners. Your fucking welcome. Thank you. Do. Thank you vets.

"Processes. External and internal, and it just depends on the roll in part of that is a bitch. A-all part of that is is sort of internal and a part of that is educating its I went for years to Carnegie Mellon, University studied at National Institute of dramatic arts in in Australia. So it's taking those skills that I literally, you know, spent time and a lot of money on to learn and utilizing the pieces from each of them that apply to any given role. So for instance, something like Olaf is gonna come from a very sort of external playful place. I am not going to sit there in in sort of marked my beats and do my thing. I'm gonna play a mimic splendid discover. So when the directors I said to me, they gave me sort of adjectives to describe the character. This. Naive, innocent childlike. And when I sort of took a second to explore those things, suddenly this kind of smile came on my face, and I started to talk a little bit different, and it was sort of like, wow, the wonderment of the world, oh my God, and it sort of became like this. Why do I child with something like Marshall, for instance, it's much more methodical, it's much more internal and it's much more about dissecting sort of the entire story. The back story in really creating a journey for this guy that doesn't exist on the page that exists off the page as well. So it just depends on the role and you had a place yet where like there are, I feel I interviewed Vincent enough Rio and I still got to his incredible unreal. And he kind of said not in a. Nebraska Doshi sway. He just said, I do. I know what is required as far as the work goes for part. And as long as I've accomplished that there really are no bad days. Not like if I've done my work, what I'm required to do to get in, he's like for better or for worse. I know that it will be either good or pretty good or great in Italy lives somewhere around there. And so have you gotten to that spot where like you're not driving home, wringing your hands going if they fucking put take four in the movie, I'm going to die. No, I wish I had Vincent enough. Ios. Healthy ego. I really always questioned my work. I find it impossibly difficult to watch myself on screen, right? I find it very, very hard to leave work at the end of the day and not question if something I could have done could have been better. There wasn't a day out of the more than three hundred sixty five days that I performed book of Mormon that I didn't question whether or not I could have gotten a laugh in a certain place I didn't, or it could have been made something of a moment. I didn't it to me. It's what makes me constantly strive to be better and in a way that that's a necessary and healthy attitude for me to have. So I'm always insecure. I'm always questioning whether or not I'm good enough. Yeah, we'll welcome. Is that just Judaism? It may be may just be Josh thing we call Hartnett yeah, and the others. Let's see what hearts is dealing with. Yeah, Josh Hartnett. What's that? Like being him? It's probably awesome. I think it's penny dreadful. Yeah. Well, done. Thank you. Well, done sir. Any bad audition stories all giving giving it one of my first. I mean, one of my most important auditions ever was my number one choice for schools was to go to Juilliard and heard of it at yes. And one of their number one choices was from not to go to Juilliard what? Yeah. And I, I actually just posted my rejection letter from them which I found after visited home, but I go there and they have do all sorts of weird stuff like be an animal, but then make the animal into a man. And I'm like, that's part of the idea that was part of the dishes. Lock off. Yeah. And like the animal had to be in a bathtub at one point and I'm like, show me where the bathtub isn't like, no, you gotta pretend to be

So the mere fact of knowing that I got beautiful fresh brush heads arriving at my home. Exactly when I need them. Just weight off the shoulders.

Slash curious us talking about voting today. You and President Obama. That's what inspired me. I got him. Vote folks all you gotta. Do you know he mentioned my name once in a speech, daddy issues kinda, he didn't say Josh can. No, he didn't say Josh grove today. I love that Josh. Groping. I got a call and he's like he was doing some speech, and he goes, Nah, I know what the kids like they like. I Carly, Josh Drake, Mike streak, Josh, Josh, but he fucking put my name. I and I was like, oh, it's about time. I was like that has a better ring talent. And I've always felt about time. Although he thought it was a show with you and the Canadian singer, Drake, and he was like, this is sounds like a great show. If this is you pitching me a spin off, I'm in. Yeah, yeah, Aubrey, Drake. Let's do it. I would actually, I would. I would pay good money to see that by the way. Oh, man. Well, anything to grassy related. I'm in obviously. So you've worked wave some incredible people. What do you look for in a director? What's your what? What he? Yeah. What is the thing that you're most interested in as an actor when you're sort of sussing out the relationship with the director? You know, I think these days it's looking for challenge not only for myself, but away to challenge my audience away to sort of keep them on their toes. I think that you know, I'm always looking for an opportunity to to do something I haven't done before to showcase something. I haven't show case before to challenge myself to do something that terrifies me. So it projects like murder on the Orient Express or Marshall, you know, there's an element of that that is me wanting to play outside my proverbial wheelhouse, but is doing something like murder on the orient. Express where you, that's a lot of star power. Yes, surrounded by. Are you comfortable in that energy or you just like, let me just do my job. Not humiliate myself and get the fuck out. Man. I I'm I'm inspired by like it's it's a masterclass. Yeah, you learn so much by being surrounded by people who are infinitely better than you at what they do, and that's how you get better. And so like rather than work with people who make you feel safe and make you feel comfortable, I think it's really important to be terrified occasionally to feel like, oh God, what am I doing here? I don't belong here. And that was definitely one of those experiences where whether I'm acting opposite Kenneth Branagh Judy, then Dame Judi Dench or Johnny, Johnny Depp Michelle Pfeiffer. Whoever's in that cast, it was like, okay, you better come to play ball does I was listening to Bradley Whitford interview the other day and he's like three things go through. My mind immediately when a director has note for me and it's fuck you, I suck. Okay. What. That's incredible. Beyond accurate? Yes. I think that that's would genius way of thinking about it. And just as an aside as a fan, boy, it's just Johnny Depp. Cool. Like he just seems he's resting cool. So unbelievably cool. I mean, like I grew up and I know he's had. You know the the, the issues along the way with public perception in things that have happened in its, it sucks. But my experience with him was wonderful. I, you know, it was limited, but does he eat? He does, and and yeah, and and he was just so giving as an artist. And again, I can just speak to him as a scene partner, but I really loved working with him in every way, shape or form. And and you know, growing up such a fan boy, whether it was advertised their hands or in particular at wood, which I think is one of the great performances. Oh, man, he's ever given if not the greatest. I just really admire his journey and going from basically being like there's a time that a lot of younger people don't remember before he was Jack Sparrow that he was literally just an arthouse guy and like doing really crazy. Cool work. That was, yeah. So unbelievably char. Charged and brilliant, Jim Jarmusch the ad van was the one of those one. Yes. And I kind of remember what? So what's your? It's a two part question of what's your process when you're approaching role and sort of how did you cultivate that process or your method? The way into a character. So there's two process processes.

And you know, you drop the ball grove and he's really did Josh speaking of Josh grove in, I'm as I'm sure you know, Spielberg is doing west side story. Did you know that? I did know, yes. It was actually really ironic because I went to the John Williams. Hollywood bowl concert, and they did like a celebration of one hundred years of Leonard Bernstein. And so they were playing a lot of west side story. And I was like this. This has to be planned because Spielberg was also there. Right? So they're like gearing up for their next collab-. And are you suggesting that I should addition for it? Well, I'm suggesting you should be straight offered it because you're Josh motherfucking Gad. Oh, maybe officer Kripke. That's not terrible. Well, kind of is, but I'll accept terrible. Ish. Yeah, it'd be terrible if it wasn't a Spielberg movie, but so dishes for it or I put it on tape because I hate myself and I like to do things that I have no shot at.

Your dulcet pipes. She goes, it was really good for someone who's never trained. Oh, but they're probably going to give this Josh grove. Oh no, mom. And it was like this one, two punch unintentional complete honesty and truth. I'm like, of course they're going to give it to Josh grove, but I love the fact that like she had to like to add insult to injury, it had to be another Josh, that got it, right. Like an at least like make it like Josh Hartnett. So it's like, you know, like a return to form kind of story, whereas like we're, we're bringing Josh Hartnett BAC yeah, a beautiful, beautiful auspey Pearl Harbor lead God. God.

Well, I just feel so honored that I threw a lob out and hit you up on Twitter. And I was like, I, I love Josh. And like maybe he'd reply actually would say yes to this. There was a good chance. I was going to say no to of don't I know it, and that is my greatest fear and trepidation about this whole podcasting in general. And can I tell you that I've had very few knows really that surprise. I mean. I don't say that word. You're so charming. You're so who can say not you true somebody reach out to Tom Cruise together next and be like, look, I did it. It's harmless. Yes, I'm on the show.

"Could be fight this weekend. UFC actually watched it with my big brother 'cause I was in Florida for my nephew's bar mitzvah which was a time. It's actually a good time, and I was with my brother watching it. And basically if you don't follow it, there was a big lead up to this and Connor being the trash talking sort of savant that he is attacked just could be on every level of his humanity and said, all the things one should never say to another human being. Even if it's all out of the desire to sell a fight and make unheard amounts of money. In doing so. But yeah, Connor trash talked him. Good. Could be took it to him in the ring, submitted him lickety-split, and and then proceeded once he wanted to jump over the cage and start a small riot and the t mobile arena by going after Conor McGregor trainers, and then some of could be teammates went after Connor. And it was a whole fucking thing and it was slightly wish fulfillment. I'm sure for every fight fan as I am one of them where WWE and professional fighting merge to where it's become just as like real spectacle. Like, you know, it's one thing for it to happen in the ring. But then as soon as it starts happening outside the ring and you think like fucking undertaker and John CENA are gonna come back up Khabib and some hardcore match outside the ring. And then you know stone cold and. The hardy boys are going to run in back McGregor and it's just gonna turn into like this crazy Royal rumble UFC style, and Joe Rogan's in the middle of it. And then Joe Rogan gets hit with a chair and he's down. I don't know. It was so in one way it was like, oh my God, I can't believe this is actually happening, and then the adult me thought better of it. And it was like, this is really unacceptable. And I think probably both these guys are to blame it some respect and and I had that adult moment. I remember like after the initial excitement of all my God, he's over the cage. He's in the audience, everyone's going nuts. Like I then eight seconds later. I was like, oh, this is incredibly dangerous. Like I just, yeah, this was this was a bad idea, but it was exciting but dangerous and just a bad bad idea. Glad. No one got to hurt, but that you know, that's what adults do. We worry about people getting hurt, weary about ourselves, getting hurt. I'm very gingerly, walked downstairs at this point. I'm very careful. You know, I feel like in your teens and your twenties, you don't give a shit. You're like, I don't care if we got bruised up break a. Lim, whatever. I'm going to be just fine. I will recuperate in weeks, but now Thuc that I'm like people be like, yo you wanna play, pick up basketball. I'm like, why don't you calm yourself? Their brother? No, I don't because I like my CL's and I don't want to rip every tendon in my knee going for fadeaway or like trying to fuck in. I don't know. I don't know sports terms, but do some cool spin move. And my knee leaves my body for a pickup basketball game. That means nothing. We're not getting paid for this. You're an accountant. I'm an actor kind of end podcast and social media personality, and I need my knees and I can't be, you know, China have my moment here on the court with you and put my body at risk. I have errands. I have important things to do. You know what I mean? And I don't know. You know, it's one thing growing up fat that fascinates me is because like I never had that competitive spirit at least physically because I just knew I couldn't. Compete. I wasn't. I wasn't blessed in that way. And so I'll see guys who were probably once very athletic in high school or college, and then they get into the thirties and forties, and they play these pickup games of fucking flag football, or, you know five on five basketball into the thirties and forties, and they just go so hard. And I just think it's gross and annoying. And Mike, I well, don't be mad when you fuck in, you know a Neilly your rotator cuff when like that elbow that you're like throwing into people's ribs. Hurts you for the next eleven weeks and you're not sure why it's because that pickup game that you made so important because you felt like you were reliving your youth at whatever, you know, high school you were at. It's because you were, you went to heart because you care too much about something that no one after a certain age, recreational sports shouldn't just shouldn't matter. Just doesn't need to be this competitive. You know what I mean? I don't know. It's weird. Tangent. What else? Yeah, I've been fascinated by the infanta lies ING sort of nature of adults as of late because I feel like adults or at least the ones I'm coming in contact with are like all trying to relive their youth, and I think it has to do a lot with like the. The the reboot nature, and everything's being rebooted from our childhood or from our from our twenties. Because, hey, I just think, you know, we're sort of out of good ideas but more. So I just feel like everyone wants to feel what it was like when they were sixteen and like, I can't tell you how many notes I know with annual passes to Disneyland and listen, not no shade, no lemonade. You know what I'm saying? Like I'm not trying it on it, but I just find it weird to be like in your early thirties without a kid walking around downtown Disney. I forgive me so Sumi. I mean, no, it's a dope place in this is no reflection on, you know, theme parks in general. I just, you know, or like a dulcimer camper frickin. Yeah, or I just feel like a lot of people need to grow up. I'm big fan of growing up. I like being grown up. I always wanted to be grown up as a kid. I actually thought the whole kit thing was like, I remember the parents and people would say like, enjoy now. It'll never be easy this right now. I'm like, it's not so fucking easy. You know, Mr Simmons. It's not so easy even now it's sixteen or twelve. And would sex Moray now is an, I'm like powerless because I'm a child and so I don't get to make decisions. But when I can, I think I'm going to feel a lot more secure about life and things. So I don't get the whole need to go back and relive childhoods and impose them on. Other people like Seinfeld has agreed joke about childhood or like the invention of our of our parents of the twenties. And on. Because before that before the nineteen twenty s nobody fucking had a childhood, right? I mean, they did, but not really because once you're of a certain age, you went and worked in your father's coat factory or your you know your grandmother's bakery, or you were like on a farm and you're a farmhand to like, you know, when you were of a certain age and ability you worked God it and like, I don't know. And then our parents or their parents, somebody had a childhood before us, and they felt like it was something special and ultra ideallic. And so now we're just like trying to preserve that for our kids and God forbid, they should tastes any bit of the world and its ups and downs and challenges before the ripe old age of twenty or like eighteen and beyond. And so we're all trying to get back there, but I'm not. I'm not trying to get back to my childhood. My childhood was what it was. It was fine, but I'm, I'm happy to not revisit it men. This is a long rant today. Sorry, guess add some shit to say. Today's episode has Josh Gad on it, hard of them, Josh Gad. Oh, you know, just the voice of Olaf in frozen also book a Mormon. Also mad things. So many so many things, movies, television, Josh is incredibly talented, and he was one of those gets for the pod that I couldn't believe we got. He and I were in a movie Cup. The wedding ringer together, directed by my friend, Jeremy Gillick, and he's hilarious in it, Tim and Kevin Hart, and I got to play for a day on it. And as you'll hear in the pot, he was nice enough to do the pod on like. I don't know a couple of days notice and I just couldn't believe he said, yes. So felt really lucky. I'm such a big fan of Josh Gad. I feel like I come across a little bit. Giddy in this episode, but so be it, you know, I'm I'm a fan. I couldn't believe he said yes, and I really appreciate him. So anyway, enjoy Josh.

"I ramble, welcome to curious, Josh pack, start the show. What's welcome back to the show, Josh peck, you're the listener. And this is the curious podcast with me, Josh peck, I'm that guy. Hope y'all had an incredible weekend and are having an incredible week. I just got back from the long as business trip. I was doing something for Bank of America in Pennsylvania, a social media activation, which was actually a really good time because it was held it like a sleep away camp, which I haven't been to since I was nine and went home from. Early as in like twenty seven days early from thirty day plan sleep way trip because I was homesick and a mismatch mom. And I realized quickly that I was going to be an attent with six other boys and what I deemed to be an unfit counselor and thought better of it and decided that it would be best if I started crying uncontrollably so that the the camp staff and administrators would quickly put me on the phone with my mom, and I knew that I had heard just wrapped around my chubby little finger and that she would, you know, lickety-split be in Connecticut. The next data to come pick me up and she was there and I went home and it was pro. She probably didn't get her money back from the camp, but you know what I'm over it and I hope that she is too. But yeah, it was a good trip. I always in Pennsylvania for that. Then I went and spoke at Bucknell university Lewisburg PA great kids, twelve hundred kids. Came to watch me, talk about shed and try to make them laugh, sort of maybe knows good. I've done. I've done like ten of these. College gigs over the last year, and now he's really nice time, and it's cool to see the the turnout in the effect and and to sort of have that college experience if if not more than for an hour or two because I didn't get that. And I think it's sort of charming and attractive. And I wonder, you know, I think about that. I have a kid on the way and that like I really can't wait for my kids have that experience of, you know, just being ETA college in making friends and limited dorms in a bunk bed, preferably with like one of those bunk beds where the desk is under it, you know? So they're like doing their homework in this little like hutch built in rooms, plus Ashley furniture, sort of loft bed thing that you can only really own till you're like in your mid twenties. Because if you have one of those after that, it's just weird. It's just. Infantile that you sleep higher than three feet off the floor. But yeah, I can't wait for my my kid to sort of have that experience, and I hope they're smart and do well in academics because I was not that way, but I would be sad. I would be sad to see him so far away from me. I was looking at those kids and I had a very dad moment of God like your parents, miss you, or Jimmy, some of your parents suck, I'm sure and don't miss you. They're just happy to be in their own routine doing their thing, but I'm sure the majority, a good amount miss you guys, you know, and I'm sure they live all over the country and they're hoping that you're not drinking too much and making complete fools out of yourselves, which I'm sure most of them are. But no, they were smart kids, smart kids. Nice Cates. Good time. I like the college gigs. It's nice to new thing for me. What's going on in the news cavenaugh he's on the supreme court. I don't want to politicize this podcast because I'm not the one. I think if I have any sort of good quality, it's my wariness of which in my opinion is probably not the best voice and things of this matter. And that people like die. Don't know. Trevor Noah or Bill Maher. John Oliver Oliver are probably more fit to sort of expound on the things that I feel. I think we, I probably share political sensibility with all those guys look up to them. Well, I like them. I don't know if I look up to them. I like them all, and but. Yeah, it's been an interesting thing and we'll see what happens. But sure is democracy in action, isn't it? I mean, our elected officials confirmed this guy. You know what I mean? So I'm not love it and people might not love it. Some people like it. I don't know, but inevitably, this is the system at work. If you want to change it, vote for it. Go out and vote do that shit because you can vote soon. I don't know when exactly you know. I know I was about to sound like someone who really was responsible and cared about his civic duty. I, you know, I care enough to mention it here and I hope that you all Google the exact date when it is our turn to vote. I believe it sometime early November. So best of luck. And then what's Conor McGregor could
