"I love to start with the worst story. Yeah. But perfect for women's hours. So I did the whole load of it. It took me 6 years. And on the very, very last gig, which was Iran. I got off the plane. I put my foot onto the floor and I tell you what, I had a feeling come over me. I thought Josh, this is not it. This is not it. You are not going to finish this right now, and I don't know why I had that feeling, but I just, I thought, no, it can't be that easy. You know, we've gone from one place to the other. It's been fine. Anyway, we stand in the immigration line, and I'm like, my heart's going, so I'm thinking, this is it, jossie. You know, you're almost done. And I got there and they said, oh, I'm so sorry, but you, all of you guys are on The Blacklist. I said blacklist. What's The Blacklist? I'm not in black. This what do you mean? And he goes, well, I'm not quite sure why. It's just coming up in our computer. So we're going to put you in this room over here. And it was all a bit scary, 'cause you know, we've heard a lot about Iran and, you know, we know that we're not allowed to play publicly there. We know that that's the law. And the same thing in Saudi Arabia, which we replayed privately, you know, same thing in North Korea. We played privately. So this guy comes in and he's so sweet and I'm a bit nervous now 'cause he's separated me from my brother. And I know in countries after learning a bit about it, I know any country where you have to cover your hair, if you get separated from your male counterpart, that's not good. Could they kind of, you know, they kind of expect you to have a male with you..

"And the day after I lost someone messaged me a screenshot of her tweeting and I thought that they made it up to cheer me up. It came out of came out of the blue. And it's made the case much more high profile. It put a lot of attention on me, whereas before, there were some people paying attention to the case, but you had to be quite interested in it. And then once it became linked to J. K. Rowling, there were lots of people trying to discredit her for what she said, and so in order to discredit her, they tried to discredit me and to say that I had misgendered a trans person in my workplace, which I hadn't, and I wouldn't, and I didn't have any trans colleagues. Would you, as it's described, misgender, it will use a pronoun that they weren't choosing. No, I took from the very start I told. Not just at work. I mean generally. It depends what the context is. So I told my workplace that in any professional social setting, I would use whatever preferred pronouns that people want. And that is true. But I'd also come into conflict. I'm scout leader. And I'd had a conflict on Twitter with another scout leader who I've never met, who prefers to be called they, but who looks like a man with a beard. And I had accidentally called this person. He, on Twitter, and they reported me to the scout association who ended up investigating me for two years. Sort of in parallel to the employment tribunal, and eventually they apologized for that. But in the course of that investigation, I did say to the scouts, if I was as a scout leader at camp. And there was somebody male in the women's showers or the girls showers, I wouldn't stop and ask them what their pronouns were..

"Twitter's not the ideal place to talk about them. But if there's nowhere else than Twitter, at least it starts the conversation. But I suppose just reversing that. Do you think twist is poisoned it to the point? That, you know, those sorts of people are scared to have those conversations. You're saying some people are already were. But it is quite hostile out there. You will have seen it. It's hostile about lots of topics, but the so called culture wars, which this then gets put into. I wonder if you feel that you could move this elsewhere now that things have changed a little better way. I would definitely like to. I've set up an organization sex matters to do some of this work to do the research to do the analysis because the established organizations were not doing that. I think. What people are afraid of is not hostility on Twitter, what people are afraid of is losing their jobs and harming their careers. And that happens because complaints processes within organizations get weaponized. Well, there's also those people, especially those trans people who feel that, for instance, if I look at after the ruling, the ruling, which overturned the original one, and the LGBT foundation gave the response concerning that ruling that despite repeat references to respect to trans people that the ruling would give license for some to hold harmful beliefs about trans people without consequences, I suppose that's the other side. Of concern. They believe that my belief is harmful and that I should lose my job because of it. Well, let's not, I don't know if they believe that you should lose your job over it, but they certainly wouldn't agree with your view. I think that's safe to say. Well, the equality and human rights commission came in on the preliminary hearing, supporting the view that this belief should be protected. And the LGBT foundation disagreed with the ehr..

"I don't think it's about expressing yourself. I think it's about whether men can be in women's sports, whether men can be in women's prisons. Whether men can be in women's refuges and well, it's also whether you're going to get a payout for losing your roles as far as you can see it in this particular instance. This is what these tweets have led to because you're concerned about people losing their employment. Right. And exactly. We need to be able to talk about that in clear words if we can't make a distinction between male people and women and female people, then how can we talk about whether it's fair for a male swimmer to be beating female swimmers. But you're not talking your tweeting. Yes, and so this comes to the point of view of colleagues potentially finding you transphobic. Did you ever have any conversations with colleagues that put you in a position where you will put them in a position, sorry, where they may think that you're transphobic. It was never raised with me. I can't say what other people think, but no, no, but for instance, at this topic come up in the workplace because you looked at me in a slightly old way when I said you're tweeting, you're not talking. A lot of people would say Twitter's not often the best place to have these debates. You may differ. But you're talking about this in the context of an employment tribunal now. I recognize you're limited with some of what you can say. But did you actually have these conversations face to face or in person on a Zoom call or something with people you worked with? Oh, it was before zoom land. But yes, I worked in the think tank. And so, you know, we talked about a lot of things we talked about Brexit. We talked about Donald Trump and we talked about whether the government should change the law to gender self ID. Not a.

That woman is my four stutter who's talking to me as she fights the next stage of her employment tribunal. You may remember Maya lost her role at a company in 2019 after expressing beliefs about sex and gender. And then eventually won the first part of her case. In what's been described as a landmark ruling, the judge said, in that room and all that judgment, I should say that gender critical beliefs are a protected philosophical belief under the equality act.

However, we are increasingly seeing women who are staying and either have no choice or want to, taking an active role in the war. Women have been prominent among Ukrainian civilians fighting Russian forces since the beginning, but a striking video posted online yesterday and picked up by many newspapers today on international women's day as it was yesterday, has gone around the world and it shows you may have seen it 6 women in combat gear with their faces covered holding machine guns and assault rifles against the backdrop of a Ukrainian flag. In case you haven't seen it, we thought it would be important for you to hear a little bit of their voices. And what they're saying there is we are women if you crane. We have blessed our men to protect our land. We've already taken our children to safety, and we join the men and the Ukrainian army..
Director Norman Stone on His New CS Lewis Film 'The Most Reluctant Convert'
"And let me just tell you, I'm a fan of C. S. Lewis. Which brings me to my friend Norman stone, the film, director, Norman stone, got on the map early in 1984 by directing a film called shadowlands for the BBC starring Claire Bloom, Joss ackland, and he's been doing all kinds of things, but a little bit of C. S. Lewis here and there. He has just directed a new film called the most reluctant convert starring our friend max McLean and Norman stone across the pond from the environs of Glasgow is here with us in the studio. Norman is that you. This is still me, yeah. It's still you. My friend, listen, we've been friends for a long time. And you and I have had millions of silly conversations or at least hundreds. But we both love C. S. Lewis. So when I found out from max McLean, in this studio, you know, he's starring as Lewis, but that you had directed it, I flipped, because I said, there's literally nobody else who should direct the film. Can you tell us because there are people tuning in, they didn't hear the max maclean interview. They may not know about the film rather than my telling them what I know. Tell us what is the film and what will we find in the film? Okay. Louis did write a lot of books, you're right. One of the ones that's probably the most impressive in many ways is the surprise by joy. Basically it's his own story. He writes with a self deferential wit and information comes out and you want to read more. So this is how he began life turned into an atheist and then was a very dogmatic atheist.

Receivers to Target in the Late Rounds of your Dynasty Rookie Draft - burst 05
"Was drafted another god. I'm fairly high on From clemson at cal. I'll let you discuss him. I think about what rogers. I'm not nearly as high on rogers as they consis I think a lot of people saw him when he went to green bay. I think everybody's been so ready for the green bay packers to have another wide receiver inserted in the draft. You know and we're just intimidating in anticipating but you know. I really don't think amari rogers profiles is the number two wide receiver in the fact. That rogers is a situation is so up in the air to say the the to say the least you know. I am not projecting broader. You're gonna be there long term and if that's the case you know is jordan love gonna be all support a wide receiver you know. Are we even sure that amari rogers is better than allen. Lazard now is dead fund as the guy that they went out and got in free agency it to be the number to receiver going into last year before he opted out. You know he's back on the roster as well and he's only twenty seven years old. I think people are really forgetting about devin. Funchess to be honest with you You know this is a guy that has already been a top twenty wide receiver in his career. So i think there's a lot more competition in green bay than a lot of people are are are getting Giving them credit for and The roger situation really makes me uneasy. Amaury writers has some talent. I i just don't think he's anything special. I just think that he's at best a middle level starter of the nfl. And i don't see much of a window of him being much higher especially as long as davante adams is on that team. 'cause i just don't see that the target share i mean it's a. It's a team that clearly wants to run the ball as much as possible. So i'm not nearly as how marta riders. I i know a lot of people are people are taking them in mid second rounds now and i think that that's a mistake. I think he was the best of water. She would come out clemson for the tape stuff that i watch. Those are good points. There's a reason as to why. I say fairly high. It's because i have a lot of the same reservation that you do. But and i do. I'm generally concerned about aaron rodgers in the future in green bay with the quarterback situation. But i have to look back at amari rogers talent and what he did in his last year and clemson and what he did was ball out in my opinion. Seventy seven receptions. Thousand twenty yards seven touchdowns. Yes he had. Trevor lawrence thong him. The ball but still in a shortened season are very impressive. Numbers and amari. Rogers is a guy that has pretty much been undervalued this entire process and now all of a sudden he's going green bay people hiding him and i'm not high on him because he's going to green by on more high in him because of the talent and the potential that i see and i do think that he has the potential to be the number two receiver in green bay S a good gig. Because even if aaron rodgers is not there in a long term disturbance excellence head coach matt floor and they still have a quarterback enjoy jordan love and we really don't we haven't seen much from during love so we can't make a lot of assumptions. But he was still you still first round pick in an quarterback the has a lot of potential people were comparing him to patrick mahomes and he. He was more of a quarterback they just needed to be developed. So i think that. I think that there's a good chance that jordan love could turn into a successful quarterback if the packers ended up do and not Having rogers under center. So i think the during the love isn't a terrible option there and lathered and function function all could be a lot number two receiver in that office. But i think long term that amari. Rogers is the better prospect for may so that is why i tend to be a little bit higher on the mar bader's
Receivers to Target in the Late Rounds of your Dynasty Rookie Draft - burst 02
"Take the floor. I the next receiver. Which was after. Marshall at will was joss palmer from tennessee. He went to the chargers with the fourteenth pick in the third round palmer's real interesting i don't think he was on many people's Pre-draft list At least i did see him on any sleeper list. Or anything and i didn't actually do much scouting on them but He's interesting profile. He's got a lot of speed. Got decent size. A not a whole lot of opportunity but mike williams ended up leaving which i think. A lot of people are expecting with this massive contracts. You know this guy that could end up being the number two For herbert for years to come. So i don't see him overtaking keenan allen anytime soon but this guy could end up with one hundred plus targets. You know if if the things shake shake the right way so he's definitely somebody on my radar because at these spots. We're going to kind of get into this. Which you really want is somebody is going to be tied to an offense in quarterback that's going to have lost ability or you guys have You know opportunity because there's not really that much talent ahead of so i do like Palmer you know. I've seen him go all over the board as far as rookie draft. So you know. I've seen him go as far as late. Second in rookie drafts. And all the way into the fourth round so it it really is dependent the rest of your league of where you're gonna have to take him but somebody that i. I'm willing to sit on the back of my roster and and maybe wait on a year and see if he can get a role in in san diego to go forward. This is one of really interesting prospects because like you were saying how this is a guy that i did not have on my radar before the draft. I think we did a rookie draft. Or so. And i do not believe that this guy got a practice rookie draft. I believe that this guy got drafted Discussed at all in like guys like rookie. More and cal. Trask redrafted those guys. Over josh palmer but all of a sudden palmer gets drafted into third round. Comes out of blue now. He's gong to destination with the chargers. Where like you said tile is a genuine opportunity for palmer to become the number two receiver there in the long term because of the deal with mike and so there's a genuine genuine however my my concern with palmer is less about the opportunity and i think that's really what has helped him rise on a lot of draft boards and his why he's going in rookie dress. It's more of the talent and the fact that he wasn't even on my radar heading into draft is a little bit concerning. Because you want a guy that you are faithful on their talent because out of everything talent is what shines is not necessarily the opportunity being at the right place in the right time is good in the short term redraft. But if you're thinking long term you. Thinking dynasty will situations chains on a year to year basis. So do we believe that. Joss palmer in the long term will be able to be the number two receiver for the chargers. Or will they just go ahead and get just in harbor a new number two target after year or two and that's us a genuine the debate and something. I'm conflicted with because sure. I like josh palmer at the moment but i don't know if five years from now if just palmer's going to be relevant so for this reason i'm a bit conflicted unjust barmer although the guys that were drafted after joss palmer. I'm a little bit higher on those guys that i will look to target in my dynasty. Drought yeah well one thing palmer. He was at a tennessee correct. Yes yes so like i. I remember watching You know because i'm uk fan. So i remember watching tennessee. I think they were the only team in the entire country. That had worse quarterback play than kentucky last year. So you know they. I remember when we played them. What they were they they. We knocked out like three of their quarterbacks because they were so bad they were just thrown. Pick after pick. So i really do think that there might have been some talent here that maybe went under the radar from a lot of people. Because the sats weren't there but you know i think a lot of it might have been the quarterback. Play had absolutely atrocious flight that that's a great point there. That's that's concerning though just because you don't exactly know what palmer is going to be able to become. But if he ends up falling this guy that wouldn't be opposed to picking but but but as we were talking about you know we were talking about cell windows you know in no guys that i didn't care for because i don't really plan on playing palmer scenes one of the reasons why i think he's interesting. Is br regardless ever played for your your team your dicey team. I do think that there's going to be a cell window. At some point. Mike williams ends up leaving even if they do bring in another number one wide receiver to go next to keenan allen. You know somebody that's more talented the palmer. There will probably be more than likely be a weaker two week window or something at some point that people will get really excited about in. Call him a sleeper. And then you might be a turnaround. Flip them for profit

Zoltan Pozsar on What Just Happened with the Treasury Market
"So joe. it's well. There's been a bit of drama in the treasury market once again. Yeah i noticed. you've got to do one of your tracy. Loa signature things. Were you talk about a move. That happened that's supposed to happen. Like once. every three billion years yes I love talking about those because it really gives everyone the opportunity to show that they've read to books by saying that the world isn't normally distributed but of course out we did see some pretty big moves in the treasury market so first of all the ten year yield jumped up to one point six percent. This was in the last week of february but the really big move came in the five year. And i think that one had something like a seven or eight standard deviation. Move one of those things. That's supposed to happen in like ten million years kind of things and really i know people make fun of standard deviations in sigma events. But really we're talking about the world's most liquid market and stuff like this keeps this. Is i think the fourth big bout of treasury market chaos that we've had in just a couple years so i'm thinking back. We had one in What was it. september twenty nineteen. We had repo madness. Then we had the march joss in twenty twentieth delivered. Us t trades boeing up and then we had a mini rates blowout in october twenty twenty. And now we just had the most recent incident so something is going on and clearly. There is a persistent issue in the us treasury market. There's a lot of things going on at once these days because there seems to be ongoing structural issues questions about liquidity which is weird in a the world's most deep and liquid market and be a market in which the fed is actively supplying a lot of liquidity or very active in the market. And then of course it's interacting with the economic situation nine policy situation because we have this fed that said we're not going to raise rates until the economy hits these benchmarks. Everyone's watching to see the fed's credibility we also have a very rapidly improving economy. We have people warning about inflation for the first time so all kinds of things happening once but yes to your point the big action we've seen we've seen rates at the long end year. Thirty year yields have been rising for awhile since the middle of last year. But it's really the action at the shorter end at striking here. Yeah and of course one of the weird things about last week as you mentioned the economy but we had this big tantrum in bond year yields without a corresponding taper. I guess so. We kind of had a temper tantrum because not that much changed last week. We didn't have fed speakers talking about rates rising or anything like that but we have this huge move in the bond market so a lot of focus on micro structure at the moment a lot of focus on liquidity ease of trading and the overall or of the treasury market. And we have a perfect person to talk about all those things. We're going to be speaking with zoltin. Pose are from credit suisse. I care wait. Let's do it yeah So zoltin i should say in addition to being a strategist over credit. Suisse has also been on the thoughts podcast multiple times. So we will be getting you that tote bag Any day now zoltin. Thank you so much for coming on. Gotten thank you very much for having. I should say one more thing. Which is that every time. There's any volatility in the rates market. Someone ibiza. it says you guys gotta get zoltan on get. It happens every time. Anything takes higher on screen of like overnight funding rates. Whatever like when you have exultant back on the episode so this is a lot of requests for this one. Sorry go on okay. Well on that. No i mean why. Don't we start out with the big question. So every time. There's some sort of chaos in the rates market. Joe gets an ib asking for you to come on the show. There have been a lot of those over the past couple of years and as we were discussing that something you wouldn't necessarily expect for the world's must liquid market so what's going on here. And why do we keep getting these sort of Mini blow ups in rates. I think people get taken out of their positions all the time I mean just to just set the set the stage for the conversation. I think there's there's a number of things that are happening That has happened last week for a number of east now and really since the The democratic when and the blue sweep the treasury curve has been steepening quite remarkable. I mean relative to The slope of curves in germany and france and japan. You know the. Us treasury kirk has gotten quiet. Steve per a number of reasons you had you had The blue sweep. You have the vaccine rollouts. Which is you know happening in the us More rapidly perhaps in other parts of the world you have The market starting to price in recovery The market trying to price in the inpatient and the market is getting Excited about the idea. That book surely comes some fed action and that that is going to try to chase down version of keep it in check and to all of these things. I think have driven the steepening of the curb. But you know the the interesting thing. Is that the steepening of the curve. Has been fairly ordered. Okay and so what happened. Last week was a little bit plumbing related but again the the underlying structural driver of rising yields has been more fundamental.

Katz Kiely Talks about how frontline.live helps the NHS with PPE and why they have open sourced the platform.
"Can you tell everyone is listening. Walk is frontline live and then how you first came about forming it. 'cause you did an amazing campaign and support early in the lockdown so what frontline live is an online live data mac which means that any healthcare worker here is on the front line who finds themselves short at ppe. And therefore is at risk of getting ill can either tweet a request using hashtags hashtag frontline map. Hashtag the postcode so we can make sure they're actually at a healthcare organization not just collecting. Ppe reason and then hashtag what it is they need or they can fill in an online form of frontline dot live and we will then do two things one of them. Put a dot opin on a digital map so that people can see with the need is but also now because of a new partnership two other organizations the healthcare workers association and met share supply drive. It means that we basically have a warehouse of free. Pp which all partners of what rated long and hard for by raising money and getting donations. And because of a partnership with hermes it means that as soon as somebody on the frontline requests vp. Because they're shows of it we can get free p. p. to them within forty eight hours. How did all of this started happening. I moved back to my house in sheffield so in lockdown home alone on zoom call with a friend of mine who is a senior us. I'm saying i can't get a delivery. I'm gonna have to go to the supermarket and she said okay. I can do one better than that. I'm going into the hospital tomorrow. We don't have any masks of probably be dealing with people with covert line flown. Can you imagine that feeling so then. Of course i became a little bit hyper aware of this particular problem. And because everyone on every social media channel that doctors nurses health care workers saying we have p p that's bound on the other side there's this incredible uprising of entrepreneurs who assisting forward money three d. printing visors. That's companies like brutal and burberry. And i'm barbara who've pivot their entire system that can make pp to give away so we've got people desperately in need and scud going without pp's any of us would put up with and people are trying to solve the problem but they couldn't see very other were and so then. I hear on the news one day. Burberry making scrubs. There's an nhs trust because they didn't have to contact burberry have had to go through some ministers in the government to ask them how they conduct bribery. Oh for goodness sake. This is ridiculous. Because i'm all about technical innovation so i thought it can't be that hard surely to find a way of making it easy for people on the front line to say i haven't got this so that people who've got supply can get it and quickly. Yeah that was my beginning and a guy who used to work with who used intel is at ucla now on run did to him. About how hard would it be for us to be able to collect data and put it live on a map so that people can see what's going on and we chatted for awhile for about an hour and then i didn't hear anything back from him midnight that night i get any email. He's already got his team on it. I'm like oh so then fast. Forward six weeks. I've had about fuzi. Volunteers who've sat forward the most incredible people people who well known in the industry. People go better things to do with their times. they busy. Who sat for just getting this. Were absolutely and we're going to make this happen so six weeks later. We launched the service in the first three month period. When all of this stuff you're talking about how they've got. The timelines has stepped forward giving his full page. Spreads is giving us full page. Adverts ocean outdoor gives us sixty with the biggest digital out of home screens across the country. So we can put stuff out there. Not one penny changes hands. A snapchat talked to the general manager. he goes. Yeah wherever we can do to help. We'll do a national campaign. you give gives your assets. We'll sort out view. I have never in my career. Repos talk about purpose and actually fears purpose. You will look forward to enjoy getting out of bed in the morning. But i've never seen anything like this in my life. The sad side of that is that the nhs in my humble opinion and i we were talking about this before. It's the jewel in our crown. It's something that we should be quite rightfully proud of. And then by an example we partnered with united health who have about one hundred thousand frontline. Health co worker members talking to them. And i'm saying i keep hearing stories from people on the front line that actually the idea of people tweeting their requests is really difficult because nobody does speak cow and people are being told not to use the service from my mouth. It being told not to use it. Yeah people are being told if they speak out about the fact that appea- shortages they will lose their jobs. Assist crazy if you can't do your job one wi fi. Find another way to do it. That's most entrepreneurs will okay. I can't go x. y. And found a way round it exactly and the system should be set up in a way. This is about somebody complaining about something. It's if you don't have you're putting your life at risk. Six hundred forty doctors nurses have died. Because there isn't enough got enough. So basically i'm finding out it's absolutely known as endemic that people inside the nhs all tolls not speak up about things and told they will lose their jobs so we moved it from just twitter to having a fool where people could Report anonymously if they were too scared to speak out off the fifteen hundred. Ish request for p. P. i reckon about eighty percents of them were done anonymously by people who was scared to speak out and some of the comments they left on those forms. Joss person frankly interesting. We've been up from. You has improved or got worse vitton. What's your gut fail. It's been interesting because there was a point where there was a story or other media about the fact that management we're turning healthcare workers to be quiet and then matt hancock said in the commons. This is not true. people will be protected. It's definitely from my perspective. People are less likely to speak out and obviously we had a bit of downtime where we registered frontline is a charity because there weren't as many cases and he gave his time to consolidate and build townships so we decided in september. Do a to find out whether or not people in healthcare organizations feel confident. They're going to have enough p. p. to see them through over this next crazy time which is become crazier guess. How many percent said they felt fully confident. They'd get enough. P p twenty eight. Wow wow wow wow that super-low eight percent of frontline healthcare workers believe they will get enough to keep them safe during this time that scary as a number. That's scary.
Interview With Cory Doctorow
"Doctor. Wrote welcome to monica. Reads so tell us tell us more about the primus of tax service well attack surfaces the third novel in the little brother sequence at the first two little brother and homeland were young. Adult books about a character. Marcus yellow starts off. His very young teen who is caught in what amounts to a police state when his hometown of san francisco is bombed by terrorists and the department of homeland security swoop in and effectively suspend the constitution and all civil liberties and he and his mates form guerrilla army. Using things like hacked. Xboxes that use cryptographic secured wireless networking to outmaneuver the joss and eventually expelled them from the city and and restore human rights and civil liberties to the population and the third book attack. Surface is a standalone novel for adults and one of the first two are about people who are terrified. By the possibility of technology being used for oppression and excited about the possibility of technology being used for liberation. This third books protagonist is the young woman. Masha maximo who appears in the first two books as a kind of antagonised in the first book we meet her as a vhs contractor. Helping to spy on marcus and his friends even though she's of the same age and from the same background as them in the second book. She's a way bandit working to spy on jihadis and disrupt insurgent networks in iraq for the us government an enormous markup and when we meet her in the third book. she's just gone full cyber mercenary and her job is helping a thinly-veiled version of a company like the ns. Oh group to spy on pro democracy movements on behalf of post-soviet dictator so they can figure out who to round up and torture and murder and she has a reckoning with her conscience. She on the one hand has been spending her whole career finding ways to justify what she does Sneaking secrets out to marcus and his friends so they could blow the whistle wrongdoing or helping marcus escape from the da chest in the first book but by the third book she's really had to Devolve into some pretty self destructive conduct like helping the people that she spies on Defeat the tools that she herself as installing. And that's obviously not sustainable. And eventually she gets fired and worse has to run away from this post soviet republic and finds herself back in san francisco where she discovers to her horror that her childhood best friend who's now on a successor movement to black lives matter is being targeted by the very same cyber weapons that she herself spent her whole life building and while the first two books inspired a really large cohort of technologists and civil rights lawyers and writers and activists and security researchers and cryptographer offers who wanted to use their technical and legal powers for good and to stave off technological apocalypse. And dystopia this. Their book is aimed more at the people who rationalize their way. One decision a time in tech and other industries into participating in a vast confiscation of human liberty and human thriving in service to large corporations and oppressive governments and to talk about what it means to pull back from the brink. When you recognize one day that that you can no longer justify what you've been doing of course corey. That is exactly the situation. We find ourselves in absolutely i mean in two thousand eighteen. We saw twenty thousand google's walk off the job tech won't build it and tech solidarity and no tech for ice and other movements within the giant tech companies are not only organizing around technological issues but also around labor and environmental issues and and you see technologists now reaching outside of their bubble so for example at amazon the movement for justice there within the company spans warehouse workers who are laboring under absolutely ghastly and what should be unlawful conditions and tech workers. Whose initial concern was surveillance and climate. But who discovered that they could not make progress nor could they feel good about their movement unless incorporated the labor concerns of these people at the bottom of the ladder at the company.

Simple Health Habits for Smart People with John Patton
"Back to the outcomes rocket saw Marquez's here and today I have the privilege of hosting John Patent. He's a career communicator and marketer, and after twenty years of private industry work. One of his nonprofit public health clients asked him to lead their communications. Department John became fascinated with the organizations worked to prevent chronic diseases ten years. Later, he is still working for that organization and helping the CDC reach Americans at risk. For chronic disease is new book, brainless health was born out of his desire to shoot straight with the general public about what they could do to reduce their risk for diabetes cancer heart disease, as well as steer clear of wheelchairs and oxygen tanks by applying simple habits to their daily life. He speaks in plain English and draws on real life stories and examples that make the science public health relatable, practical and. Possible and so who wouldn't want that in their lives I know I definitely do and so it's my pleasure to welcome you to the podcast John. I'm so privileged to have you here with US imagine I, do appreciate that last comment that who wouldn't want that they're like I believe that when you have health, you have real well being and when you have a being that's well, you have success in life. I mean it conversely, if you don't have health, it's GonNa, be hard to achieve much in life and relationship or professionally certainly, not physically. So it is something that everybody should want and I think they do, and so my hope is to help them get their in simple ways I love it, and you know John had a guest on the podcast several years ago say our nation's wealth is it's health and. You're going to help us dive into that further and how important it is today especially with Kobe and everything that's happening even more important than ever tell us before we you know obviously dive into brainless health your book in the work that you do that and things that we could to our daily lives. What inspires your work in healthcare you know like you said in the election i. Really came into the field of public health and health care by accident working with a client and as I learn more about them, I just caught the passion for what they were doing. The fact that we can actually do lifestyle interventions in lifestyle change lifestyle behavior can really impact the health of ourselves in our country, and so I've worked with physicians I worked with Public Health folks state. Health, departments, county health department and the general public, and so what really lights my fire get out of bed in the morning are the stories of people who actually take control their health it's not all bootstrapping and and just you know personal responsibility of making a new resolution. It's actually using the resources that are available in public health, a lot of programs and projects out there that they. Can Use as resources, but also each other and their communities but ultimately it is there will to change their life and change really rations fine them. Yeah. It's inspiring work and say you've taken a personal approach to it. You know just simple habits that we can use to improve our health. Tell us a little bit about the book and your work and how it's adding value to the ecosystem. brainless help with something that the title of the book came about because I kept coming back to the fact that there were really brainless things meaning not dumb things things that you don't have to think about to put into practice long before Kovin people have not been washing their hands. Now that's brainless. Our mothers and Fathers Autism Wash your hands we can avoid myriad diseases joss by doing that alone people will say all the time that they they're sick. And they caught something or the other, and that's true and it could have just come from some real simple germs they were carrying around and transmitting. So his things like that the the government doesn't like to use the word exercise they liked say physical activity will typically activity is Canada. It's not an intuitive kind of more choice and it can mean a lot of things vacuuming your house to be physical activity, but it's not gonNA help you pre diabetic state it's. Not GonNA reverse your numbers you need to exercise wall know what that means whether we like it or not need elevator heart rate and exercise and sweat, and so those are the kinds of things that I put it in plain. English tell fun stories about my own life because I made a transformation inspired by many other people in my life and I really I really think it's time that we should straight with people stop giving each other and out and. District. Of the Salad Mike cost more than a couple of cheeseburgers doesn't mean we have an excuse to to order the choose business. You know all the time at least

I think alcohol is one of the great social is the great social drug and the problem is, how do you make sure people don't overdo it.

There's lots of interesting stories and you know my life full of colors but sometimes it just went to sleep and be happy with my garden. So i have. I think i have a bit of a balance. You know my job and encourages travel with my dad. Encourages travel and to be honest. The world i see my eyes encourage it and my ears and my taste buds. Encourage it but it doesn't mean you have to do it. So so joss between your father stories of travelling overseas in their living in a small village in having some of your formative years of only a couple of hundred people there was this dichotomy where you content in sufficient in this village or you dying to leave and explore england or the greater rural. Did you have dreams of travel growing up like this. You know i think i did. I think i'm most had dreams of music. And i was so young when i started. I didn't. I didn't really connect the dots. I've always thought that anything is possible. Like i'm a super literal person like sometimes so literal that really annoys everyone But i've always thought right. Well you know. Why can't you go everywhere and anywhere and do anything so if anything is possible then that opens up your mind. So i thought right when i'm going to become singer and i'm going to hundreds of thousands of people and at that age i was twelve so it never had another job and i got that job at fourteen so i didn't think i had time for my brain to be like i gotta travel. Go to get out of here i've got to. I never had the chance to get to that place of boredom. Really but then i say that and i stand a red light in a traffic jam and i get bored so that's me so i kind of i suppose that aspect of being bored it does exist in me but i remember ever sitting there going. I've got to get out. But i do remember thinking. Oh i really want to be a sing. I really want to have music in my life. And then i realized that that that music is the is the key that opens the door to.
"joss" Discussed on Counting Countries

"Yes first day of suggest that would be a pretty important wake full. Bitcoin Lodge markets has started with a big grain. Candle across the entire. Talk Ten. Now I have teiken to note What's been going on in other markets as well of light and the reason that I've been watching What has been going on of light in other. The markets is quite simply that I want to say. Is bitcoin going to remain a correlated asset class to other markets over lit so to skew off and do it signed thing lock? It was a surprising. Ten suppose intended to do back in the During inception period so on one looking at now is You know a US. Market that is is very buoyant on the dyes obviously has big full. But we've got we've got things like the Dow is up five percent. The pay five hundred is a four point six percent. These are very very very significant gains on these markets that you might not sound think that five percent means very much. 'cause y'all use to crip die but it does. It remains an enormous amount because these much more difficult markets to move because they have so much more liquidity so much more value With in these markets than we have in Crypto. A lot going on out there at the moment golden. Do a great deal. I can tell you that. Now it's at one point five percent. Silva's up point three seven percent. It was a global indices.

There is a pool by into that cradles Excuse me and it's holding route smack bang in the middle of that so as a guide to continue on that I certainly hope so because if we do get this little pull back and we do push to when you high then we are in really really good territory on the weekly so coming back to the daily of course as I said we moving up towards dawn thousands. GonNa be very interesting. Dichotomy Cinema. Can't just go in a straight line more or less at It's done from Wolfowitz. Lo Let's just talk. She's three this.

The Greedy Dog
"Greedy dog once upon a time there was a greedy old dog named Bailey. Every bite of food every scrap of snack every bit of bone. He got he guarded jealously he'd bark if they looked growl if they came near and bite if the barking and growling didn't work he lived in a busy town and his owner was a butcher so he never lacked for good chunky bones to chew every morning he got a fresh one and he'd spend his day eating the meat and marrow until the sun set behind the trees. You'd think with such easy access to bones. Bailey would be generous but unfortunately it was actually exactly the opposite. The greedy old dog never shared not even once he would take days bone from his master along with a few heads scratches and then go into the alley behind the shop and Choo Choo Choo. It was a fat and lazy life which suited the old dog just fine until it didn't. It was a day like any other. Bailey had gotten his beef bone from the butcher and brought it out back to eat however he only got a few Thompson before. A stray cat happened by. She was tatty and orange with wild whiskers and zigzagging white stripes. She had a ball of yarn in one PA that she was carelessly batting back and forth. Bailey immediately started to bark but the cat jumped up on top of a chain link fence where she was well out of the dog's reach and knew it. Hello dog she purred easy with all that barking. Mister Tough Guy. She prowled closer one shaggy paw at a time. Yarn Ball stringing behind her. Tell me what is it that you have there? You'll better keep on walking sister. Bailey growled cradling. The meaty bone protectively between his paws. This is my bone. I don't share. The cat crept closer walking gracefully along the Metal Tube. That topped the fence. She sniffed the beefy bone on the air and her wild whiskers twitched and bounced suppose instead it was hours. She said licking her lips. Her tail swayed and curled behind her. Like a Fuzzy Orange Pendulum. Keeping a hungry time. I've seen you out here with bones before surely you could share a little. No never not ever. Bailey growled Max my bone and I need it all. Go Chew Your Yarn. Oh surely you could spare just a bit. She said it's been a few days since I've had a good meal. She arched her back and sure enough under all that tatty orange for she did look rather skinny. That didn't overly worry Bailey. Though as far as he was concerned that was her problem. His problem was finding a place to enjoy his treat without being bothered with a final withering. Bark Bailey picked up the bone and marched out of the alley. He marched down the street and he marched through a parking lot and finally found a quiet place in a vacant lot. Surrounded by plywood fencing. The grass was long and soft and full of bugs. But that suited Bailey just fine. Finally I can eat my bone in peace. He said and began to GNAW. There were a few minutes of gnawing just some real good quality gnaws but before too long the greedy old dog found himself interrupted again. Why am I stars and Garters? Is that an old bowl. I smell my fine sir. Came a voice from a nearby garbage. Can Bailey started barking until tubby raccoon hopped out of the can and scampered up onto a nearby dumpster? His body was all heavy roles and bright. Eager is now now now. My good man he said no need for all the commotion high was merely enquiring. As to whether you'd be interested in sharing that big media bone with a fellow enthusiast merits my boat and I don't share Bailey growled. Now you keep on moving you shonky. Trash Panda. The raccoon put a finally fingered hand to his chest. Trash panda good sir. I'm sure you know that is a mortal insult Mike Kind. Surely you must have misspoken. Surely you our garbage in your ears. The greedy dog wolfed by said what I said. And you're lucky. I can't climb up that dumpster or I give you what trump. Bailey stood taking the bone in his mouth and stocking away. Why would no one leave him alone? All he wanted to do was chew is beef bone in peace. Apparently that was too much to ask for. Though he marched out of the vacant lot and marched through a pleasant park. He marched right up to a quiet little pond where he finally found a peaceful spot by the Water. No more interruptions. He said it's time to eat. He began to chew happily gnawing the bone with abandoned but before too long the greedy old dog found himself interrupted once again. Wow what a treat tame a plucky voice usually we only get stale bread around here to exasperated to even Bark Bailey. Turn to look at his latest interruption. It was a Chubby duck floating on the water nearby. She had a playful smile on her beak and feather that stood straight up at the back of her head making her look just a little silly. This isn't a treat for you. Bailey growled it's my bone man. I don't share. Are you sure? The Duck said her feathers fluffing. I could trade you some stale bread. Who or some stale bread. And if I look around I bet I could even find some stale Brad. Bailey just looked at her eyes narrowed not into stale bread. The Duck said. Let's okay Let me think I have something else. Oh Oh what about some Stale Bread Bailey side? This place wasn't going to work either. He thought briefly about splashing into the water to chase the duck but he'd never been much of a swimmer and it just didn't seem worth the effort instead. He picked up his bone and marched away further into the Little Park. He didn't make it far this time as he was crossing a footbridge over the pond. He caught sight of another dog. It came out of nowhere. Big and shaggy. It was all of a sudden right in front of him. Of course it must be after his bone enough was enough so then the greedy old dog did what he did. Best he barked. Unfortunately the other dog wasn't a dog at all but Bailey's own reflection in the water and when Bailey barked. He forgot he was holding his bone. Raw No no no. No he cried but it was too late. The bone fell bounced off the edge of the footbridge and splashed into the water. Bailey fell to his belly and pod the pond but it was no good. The water was too deep. He couldn't reach not even when he stretched as far as he could. Oh have a little accident. I've had accidents before one time when I was just a duckling I wet the pond. Ou don't tell anyone though. Bailey groaned that annoying duck was back the duck. Your secret is safe with me. He said watching her float across the peaceful pond. Say Do you think you could dive down and grab that bone for me? I die for still bread all the time. Here I go. Oh wait a minute I asked you to share and you said no and now you want my help. I'm just I'm confused. Yes that is what happened now. Go get my bone and will you share. If I do know love course not. Bailey said offended. She would even ask well. Then why should I help you? Matt Question Took Bailey. By surprise he thought about it for a minute. And then a minute more finally. He decided the duck wasn't really all that big and he could probably share a little more. Okay fine he said if you help me get the bone file. Share it with you. The Duck flapped happily. Oh Great. That sounds even better than stale bread. Here I go. She dove under the water and then came up again. A minute later without the bone. Where is it oh it's too heavy. She said I can't lift it with my beak. If only I had clever hands like the humans. Oh Bailey wind and laid his head on his paws. He thought for a moment and then realized he knew someone with Clever Hans. Wait here he said I'll be right back. Okay I'll wait here. I'll be right back. I'm a dog whistle. The Duck said happily belly wasn't sure that she got it but he didn't want to waste any time. He ran back to the vacant lot and found the raccoon digging through the dumpster. Pay Their Raccoon. Bailey called. I don't suppose you'd come and help me with those clever pause. The raccoon popped out of the dumpster. A banana peel stuck to his forehead. Oh No it's raccoon. He said what happened to trash and the old dog blushed. He had been hoping the raccoon had forgotten about that. Why had he been so rude? What was he thinking? But he knew what he'd been thinking he hadn't wanted to share not a bit not a bite and now he was getting what he deserved. He just hoped it wasn't too late to make amends. I'm I'm sorry Bailey. Said my shouldn't have called you Dach- I was greedy and I was rude. The truth is I lost my bone in the pond and I need help getting it out. Oh so you come crawling back to me said the Raccoon. Lacing his clever hands over his tubby belly well old. I don't see why should bother myself with your affairs. Now if you helped me all share the bone daily said you can split it with me and the duck. He quickly told the story of the duck and the water and the beak. That couldn't quite lift the bone as he told it he found himself laughing little. The duck had a certain charm and he thought maybe he wouldn't mind sharing quite so much as he thought. Oh a morose tail indeed. My good man said the raccoon. I'd love to help but I'm not much of a swimmer. Self Bailey felt his heart sink but then the raccoons stood tall holding up a finger. But but what? I think I could still help with clever Paul as I can tie a loop and the duck and dive down and wrap it around the bone and then you can pull it out of the water. That's actually brilliant. Bailey said impressed. Oh but I don't have any string do you? No I'm afraid not my good sir. The Raccoon said sadly I guess the bone is lost to us forever? Well said the dog. Maybe not meet me at the pond. I think I know where to get some string. The raccoon pat it off to the pond and the dog went back to the alley behind the butcher shop. Hello he called when he arrived cat. Are you still here? Silent as a shadow the tatty orange cat appeared on top of a nearby awning. She watched him suspiciously batting the ball of yarn back and forth between her paws. What is it? Are you trying to tease me with your bone? More she purred listen. Bailey said finding that apologizing wasn't so hard once you got into it. I'm sorry for how I acted earlier. I was greedy. I was so so greedy. The truth is I've had a tough afternoon. I lost my bone in the pond but then I made friends with a duck who loves stale bread and I think with a raccoon to even though I called him a trash. Panda Okay we have a plan but we need your help. He explained about the duck in the raccoon and the pond and the string. And why should I help you? The cat asked flexing her claws. Joss because you apologized because you can share the bone with US Bailey said and then he went on inspired by notch us this bone by a newborn every day. And I'M GONNA start sharing with all my friends. You you WANNA be my friend. I was greedy and it cost me. He said my idol. Learn the hard way that driving. Everyone away means you don't have to share but it also means you're all alone by a one that I I'm sorry if you can forgive me. I'd like to be your friend even if I don't let you use my string Bailey. Thought for a moment. Did he just want to be friends for the string? With a surprise he realized that no he wanted to be friends for more than that running around making a plan and talking to these other animals weird as they might be was the most fun he'd had in years. Why don't deserve the strings? So I understand if you don't WANNA share it either way. I'd still like to be your friend and I'll have a newborn to share tomorrow. Well in that case said the cat leaping off the awning with the ball of yarn. Let's go get that bone. Bailey barked again but this time in excitement they ran back to the pond and found the raccoon and the duck waiting for them. Oh it's our friend the dog and the cat. I
Explaining Occam's Razor
"Today we're going to discuss a problem solving principle that many of you probably heard of and we've we've definitely referenced on the show before and that is autumn's razor that's right. It's it's one of the classics one of the hits of like the skeptical toolkit and I think it's a really one to get into because it's something that is widely known but in different ways and often To whatever extent it actually does have value. It often gets deployed in ways that do not actually make use of its value right like like an actual razor blade. It may be misused from time to time. Yes now. What one specific place that. I know we've talked about it before. Is that is in the context of Carl? Sagan's recommendations for the the tools of skeptical thinking he these out and one of them is autumn's razor. He writes all comes razor this convenient rule of thumb urges us when faced with two hypotheses that explain the data equally well to choose the simpler. Okay now why did we end up talking about this today? We we were in the studio the other day Discussing upcoming episodes. And you said that. Seth had mentioned this our producer Seth Yeah. I was in here and set a nickel Johnson was working on. A crossword puzzle was at the New York. Times he tells us it was the New York Times And he he asked me how to spell. Autumn is in razor and I took a guess at it and I can't I can't remember. I was correct. I was probably wrong but also probably hit one of the multiple acceptable spell things for razor But anyway we started talking about it and I was like. Oh Yeah we we could do that as an episode and so here we are. I'm very glad we picked this because I think one of my personal favorite genres of of critical thinking is is being skeptical about the tools of skepticism. You know is sometimes people who identify skeptics can ca- can I get a little cocky. You know they get a little too sure of themselves about what the reasoning tools they use and it's worth putting those tools to the test. Giving them a closer look. Yeah absolutely now I have to say I definitely remember. The first time I encountered the concept of outcomes raise or at least the first time I encountered it and it on some level stuck with me and that was when viewed the Nineteen ninety-seven film adaptation of Carl Sagan's novel contact the movie. I can't watch without crying. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah well. Why does it make you cry? Oh God there's no point especially the first part where you know it. Zooms out from the earth and you're hearing the radio signals go back in time and then and then it shows the young. L. E. Airway experimenting with the Ham Radio and her dad's helping her and get so emotional. Yeah Yeah it's it's been a very long I. I haven't seen it since initially came out and in fact the main thing I remember from it is seen in which jodie foster's character. Eleanor Airway has having this conversation with Matthew mcconaughey as character. Who How old was Matthew mcconaughey at this point? I don't even know how old he is. Now is this ageless demon but anyway. Here's this character He's scared Palmer. Joss in the scene in question foster's character brings up autumn's razor in a discussion on the nature of God she. She says well which is ultimately the simpler hypothesis that an all powerful God exists or the human beings made got up in order to feel better about things and then this ultimately comes back around is kind of flipped on her later on film regarding her characters encounter with an extraterrestrial intelligence right. Is it more likely that she really had the experience? She thinks she had with With all these aliens or that. She like hallucinated. Something that would give her emotional closure. Yeah and so. Yeah I think I was in high school at the time so it was. It was interesting concept especially in the context of of atheism verses of faith in a creator deity inserted to suddenly have this tool from the chest. Skeptical thinking just thrown up on the table and you and seemingly used by both sides. Well Yeah I think this is funny. This is a great example because it highlights some of the most common features of all comes razor as it is actually used to like. It's often invoked in a kind of fuzzy way without an objective measure Just kind of invoked to back up your intuitions about the probability of something right but another thing is that this example shows how. It's not always easy to find a way to compare the simplicity of two different propositions like is the existence of God a simple hypothesis or a complicated one that I think that really depends on kind of how you feel about it like like what kind of objective measure can you come up with to evaluate that question right. It's GonNa depend so much on your like your background your culture what you grew up with. And you know how you how you've come to view the possibility of Of God's existence. Is it just kind of the bedrock of your your worldview or is it this thing from the outside that you are contemplating and also how do you view it at like the coherence of the idea? Do you view it as something. That's like That's full of all these little kind of ad hoc accommodations or something that is a holistic coherent Sort of like fact about nature. Yeah you know I it's I I think this is a perfect example. That shows like win. People used the idea volumes razor in a way that is not helpful and doesn't really doesn't really get you any closer to figuring out what's true now if you're if you're still questioning what the concept really means. Don't worry we will get to some. I think some very understandable examples of how it can be a used properly and used improperly. But let's go ahead and just start about the concept itself the the word autumn You know where this comes from. We'll get to the origins of autumn's razor so Oxfam's razor is also known as the principle of parsimony and parsimony means a tendency towards cheapness or frugality. So I like that. It's like the principle of parsimony is like you. You want to be cheap with your with your logic right yeah. I don't need more than two steps of logic between me and the solution. Don't give me one with four or five. And it was named after the Medieval English philosopher William of autumn. Of course William of Arkham So he he lived in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries from twelve eighty five to either thirteen seven or thirteen forty nine. I've seen different death dates given forum. I've seen different birthdates as well. Eighty seven twelve. Eighty eight looking at That's interesting so he was a prolific scholar. Franciscan friar we'll get more into his ideas in a minute. I you know one thing I've always wondered is where the heck is awesome. I've never heard of that. Well yeah because the word sound has kind of like a remoteness to it. It sounds alien in some ways. Autumn is very much a real place. It is a rural village. In Surrey England. You can look it up online. You can find that the website for the church in Oxfam for example and this area has been occupied since ancient times. It's about a day's ride south west of London and it was the birthplace of the individual who'd come to be known as William Volume now beyond that beyond the fact that he was born here. We don't know a lot about William's life We don't know what his social or family background was or if his native language was French or Middle English. As Paul Vincent Spadea explains in the Cambridge companion to Arkham he was likely given over to the Franciscan order as a young boy. Before the age of fourteen and here Latin would have quickly become his language of not only writing but also just conversation Grey Friars Convent in. London was likely his home convent but later he traveled he visited Avalon he visited Italy and he lived the last two decades of his life in Germany. Now philosophically William was a Nominal List and spayed writes that the two main themes of this for William were the rejection of universals and ontological reduction in these two teams are are not necessarily interconnected like you can you. Could you could believe in one but not the other and vice versa but basically like let's get into what these mate so the first rejection of universals is perhaps best considered and this is very brief and broad Certainly you can find so much written in instead on this topic but basically think of it as a rejection of the tonic idea of the realm of forms. So that idea that all chairs that we might make design and carve a symbol are an attempt to create the perfect chair which doesn't reside in our world but only resides within this realm of forms. So all chairs that we create our like an aspiration for the ideal chair another way. I've thought about it at least as I understood it was. The nominalism is kind of the idea that there is no such thing as a chair. There's only this chair and that chair in this chair over here. There is no chair right like this. This is the kind of the situation gets too. When you you get into the genre classifications of say albums artists or movies. You care a great deal about and someone tries to limit it to a classification and say oh well that's classic rock where that's alternative rock near like. No no no no no. Don't don't try and fit there is there. Is these categories. Do not apply. There is there is only you know whatever. Your band of choice happens to be. There is only tool. There is only primis or whatever right there yeah there. There is only things not category right. Now let's move onto the second theme here. Ontological reduction this is as Britannica defines it quote the metaphysical doctrine that entities of a certain kind are in reality collections or combinations of entities of simpler or more basic kind. I think your classic example here is molecules atoms. Yeah so another example. Here's while our aristotle defined ten categories of objects that might be apprehended by a human mind. These would have been translations vary on on how you wanted to find these but substance quantity quality relative place time attitude condition action and affection. William cut these down to two substance and quality. He's really getting in there. That's the razor. That's what a razor Dutt. Cia slices away. It cuts off the fat and gets down to the meat. Spayed writes quote. Although these two strands of thinking are independent. They are nevertheless often viewed as joint effects of a more fundamental. Concern the principle of parsimony known as Oxfam's razor okay. So we're getting to the razor. Yeah so William. Devoted a lot of energy to arguing against What spade calls the bloated onto logical in inventories of his contemporaries and became well known to his peers for this as such either towards the end of his life or shortly after his death a kind of greatest hits album came out on his thoughts and ideas titled On the Principles of Theology? Now it wasn't actually by William of Arkham but it featured his doctrine as well as verbatim quotes there is no ascribed author either so later generations would often just attribute it to him as well as the notion of outcomes razor however the specific phrase was apparently never actually used by him. He never said autumn in the house. I'M GONNA get the razor out and started carving on some some some some some ideas
Joel Smith Q&A on Sprint Training Methods and Running Biomechanics, Physical Preparation and Motor Learning Topics | Sponsored by SimpliFaster
"So the first question comes from Chris. McCormack Chris says says How have your thoughts changed on training team sports over the past one to two years? And what things you may have added to your teams. So I'll answer this from from what I've done from. Just a general perspective and really that is making a higher percentage of the total work bodyweight and making king a higher percentage of the training a little more intuition based Or unscripted at least the early part like the warm up more unscripted versus the latter portion of the workload so The My my buddy Paul cater from Selene owns the Alpha project. And Salinas. I talked with him frequently about the idea of really just a really straightforward just trying to not make athletes robots trying to give them freedom and creativity and problems to solve and being in flow in a session question. Now I think an unscripted portion of the work can definitely do that on for me. A lot of that unscripted work is in the body weight medium so crawls and and monkey bars ars and Things like you even A lot of a lot of things as well that I've learned from Dr Tommy. John Likes like various hip circles than single guard. Yells and things on one leg and lightweight body weight options done for high repetitions to really cover a basic human movement and motor patterns. Now I like to get into a lot of medicine ball work. I like to integrate a lot of games and things That I've learned for like Raith Kelly and ways to basically make sure an athlete is emotionally ready once we get to harder pro- portions of the work or not even harder but I guess more scripted more traditional more block esque versions of things One one thing I've done as well as that I've increased the relative proportion of body weight but also extreme isometric work done at the tail end of the workout. I would say. I've traded a decent chunk of traditional barbell lifting for extreme isometric work and I've seen a great pay off in terms of injury rates and decrease decrease Decreases there. I also feel like it's just. It's a good thing to to do that type of thing as well. Because I think it's good to hone your eye for movement in the body weight medium because that's what athletes compete in. So I'm always trying to do just a little bit more work there and just because it's body weight Doesn't mean that it's easy. It doesn't mean that there's not in intensity to it. That's not the case at all. If anything a lot of the body weight work should be done with the same equal intensity to I N. It's different typewriter high-priced tunneling as much but to a heavy set of lifting like bench. Press or squat. There should be everything you're doing is important in so cultivating flow through the whole workout. Whether it's whether it's a crawl whether it's a lunch whether it's a monkey bar extreme isometric or remain set of work it's all it all matters. It's all the same and it all should be done with a high expectation of movement quality and so at for me personally. Actually I I get a lot of enjoyment out of creating unscripted body. Wait based work and I often also and this is something. I'm doing more recently as I really look at how. The music cultivates that and caters to that so using using stuff that's a little bit more in the Edm or deep house. Even genres can keep that rate of work and put athletes flow better for that type of stuff and I think it's all really important especially especially to on the last thing I'll say is I definitely done more unilateral work than bilateral work. Just because it's and along on the coattails of that Cam Joss Chad Denison Denison episode. I just think that there's so much gold in just the functionality. How do we move? And when Your Trade Team Sports I we definitely have to ask ourselves. Would we rather have an extra inch. Vertical job maybe an extra cutting extra three or four hundred forty dash or would we rather have an athlete. WHO's a a little more robust and resilient I mean it's an argument that with the single versus double-leg we can also make the argument that it doesn't even matter But that's not really the point of this. I'll just say that I've Added in a little bit more single leg work throughout the year that also makes it. A higher percentage so moral of the story is bilateral. Sadula plan exercises. I still have them in there but they play a little bit less than they used to. Okay second question is from Brandon Green. He says what is your opinion or viewpoint on information that we have acquired from the Soviets or any of the former eastern bloc nations. So I think this is a good question. Just in the sense of a lot of people will say well the Soviets were using using steroids in the eastern bloc. Were it was just steroids. That was there do are creating their success so we didn't really hold their training to a higher guard. And yes obviously. These athletes were definitely masterful users of steroids. But I do think I'll just say this is I. I have like a lot of the texts. And your Dr Gorka Shanansky huge influence on me book like books like Super Training and things like that. I just have a couple things to say in one is if you look at the quality of the research that was coming out back then then in the seventies from Russia like the studies in Super Training are just awesome studies. They're they're they're very applied studies. That I don't. I think that we really do as much today because I made like the funding isn't there. We have untrained recreationally train college students not high performance athletes. Fleets doing this. And it's not it was more of a government thing back then it was a whole nation. Really trying to spearhead these efforts and so the quality of the work done it was just fantastic and then also say to to you if you look at like the technical models if you go to track and field and you look at the technical models and triple jump is one. I like in particular you look at these. I think is a Ukrainian female who has the world record but if you look at like her style it was a dairy bar has shown to me. It's a high flat high wave form. It's not the flat flat flat. And these these athletes. They're in my opinion a lot of their technical models even were superior or to what we have now or what. We think is optimal technique now and if you watch those athletes it's not just they're not just more powerful because of the steroids royds. They also had a superior technique in a system. That was behind them. So I think there's a lot more than just that so I am definitely a huge I I the Russian and Soviet stuff means a lot to me. I don't bypass it. Because of the whole steroid thing. And I know that I think we'd be naive to say that the Russians and the eastern bloc the only people using steroids in that era. So yeah I think it's certainly valuable information and I think it's good things to look at okay next one This is Citric doc over and he says what are your thoughts on the role of ankle strengthened maximizing the single leg vertical job so this is a great question Ankle Strength Frank Foot strength very important and so the man I want to say I think this goes back to angus young. Quite a few podcasts ago where he was talking about Athlete that was like blowing everybody out of the water in acceleration and counter movement jump and we came to top end speed. I think they they weren't quite as good. And one of the things that was a factor was their foot or ankle. Strength was not that great and so I do think that the foot and ankle and you could call it like a fashion. The fashion line the system it becomes more important. The faster contact times get So generally speaking it is really important. It's definitely not everything I think. A lot of times. It comes with the territory. If your feet are sensing in working properly so if my feet can sense the ground well I have good bio mechanics a lot of times. That's just gonNA come along naturally but if not a things there's a lot of things that can help we've had Chongzhou on the show talking about hyper chops even stuff office. Simple as single Eglin hops can be awesome for helping to improve that and things that I like doing. It had been leaning more toward these days in the world of motor learning as combining these things. So if you're doing some single leg vertical jumps doing some single egg line hops and making it a complex or complex thing single egg jump work with sensory work and with high rep elastic working. We're making this a combo to almost like a sandwich to to really give a full. You're feeding sensory work in your feeding activation and and Activation High Rep work him. And you're feeding the actual skill and so we're putting this on one thing. I think the output is is pretty

"Got a note saying that ship Joss said that he is he is doing is opening argument here as house manager number one he said we cannot trust the ballot box now where do you start with this well you start with Russia and these people still trying to convince people to trump colluded with Russia and stole the twenty sixteen election and is already working with potent via Ukraine just steal the twenty twenty this is their case that's why trump's gotta go not trump gotta go now even before they convicted yeah they they made a play in the last couple days to get trump front office now even before any conviction because he's threatening the twenty twenty much to shift just says we cannot trust the ballot box ladies and gentleman there is not a shred of evidence that the election in twenty sixteen was tampered with in any way shape manner or form by Russia in all of the indictments that Robert Muller handed down listen to me on this people have forgotten it so long ago and it's such a crowded crowded news arena now when Robert Muller announced the indictment of the eleven Russian cyber troll farmers first doing you know chicanery on Facebook and all this other stuff in the announcement about indictment Rosenstein very last thing he said so that nobody would hear it there's nothing in these indictments that shows one vote was changed because of the actions of the kos there is nothing in may is indictments that suggests the outcome of a single election was changed because of the actions of those indicted in this indictment they wave they went out of their way to make everybody understand the Russians had no impact on voters vote counting vote tabulate nothing and yet the Democrat party persist in allowing the American people I told you that these people ought to be held accountable they have done more to correct that the honor and integrity of American elections than anything the Russians could have done had they succeeded the Democrats have made sure everybody doubts every election result they lose when they the Russians did it did it what have you already accusing trump of tampering with the twenty twenty like tell me how would that happen I don't want to go there it's it's patently absurd ship is lodging for receiving now telling people I'm a Republican senator and I'm listening this stuff I want to throw this guy out I want to be pound the gavel say why are we sitting here listening to this tripe we can't trust the ballot box because of a phone call with Ukraine I mean if even ridiculous to assess this in specificity like this we can't trust the ballot box good lord there are there are a lot of uninformed people out there going to be when they hear this my god folks this is the height of irresponsibility and why is it happening these people for somebody just these are the people tell us how unhealthy it is to Hey how damaging it is to hate people how unproductive they have nothing but hate they have hate for trump image here rational compounded it's impossible to properly categorize it for people I'll tell you something else shifted everything that these Democrats are saying can be refuted with fact and here is another one Schiff was talking at some point last twenty minutes about how important the a trump withheld from Ukraine is it was deplorable it was horrible it was it was a risky what trump did because you'll crane needs that aid to protect itself from Russia but of course trump being in the back pocket of Russia doesn't want you claim to be able to protect itself this is what she is saying and implying talking about how important the aid to Ukraine was and how mean and how inexcusable it was of trump to delay it okay let's go back to Ukraine before trump go back to Ukraine during the eight years of Barack Obama the reason you crane does not have a significant military apparatus is because when he forced them to get rid of it the Obama administration and in exchange for Ukraine doing that we signed a pact doorway treaty pledging to come to their defense should they be attacked and unable to defend themselves you know what they were attacked Russia attacked Crimea part of Ukraine and literally took it Russia caveman Latimer portable wireless Obama was president and annexed talk Ukraine we offered not one shred of help we didn't offer any assistance we didn't abide by the treaty or the pact that we had signed and here is this whole whining little scum ball telling everybody how in danger do you'll crane was because of trump who gave them the aid they got the military and the trump promised a may end up getting more than we had promised to give them it was with held for a matter of days but they got it they did not get any aid from Obama or Adam Schiff or the Democrats during the Obama eight years they didn't get any assistance we didn't follow through on a commitment we have made barackobama practically made sure that Vladimir Putin could come in and take part of Ukraine and these people have the gall to go to the floor of the United States Senate today and claim that Donald Trump by delaying aid in danger all good buddy and al why Ukraine and put them at great risk.
