It's wtrw yes i do. I do fold everything away. Gosh my secret is out. I mean well. I am very like tidy very organized person and you know on one hand. I love like the drawer. Everything being neatly tidied and put away because then it's like pleasing. It's like a small little tiny moment of of having fresh flowers. It's just like oh that's nice And i think for a while. I mean there's probably a part in my life for any little mishap would crush me and i think it's sort of turned me into a bit of a neat freak because it meant that that was an area of my life i could kill some control over so there was a time. We're just kinda served me well to think okay. Well at least taken full these dish put them away so that when it opened the door. It's not total chaos. I can't do much else. So i think i've always been a tidy person. But i think it probably got heightened in the in the last years but yes. It's true it's true. I'm i think. I know where you may be got some secret intel.

Your dad Was cree and sounds like he was. A healer was a culture her first nations culture part of your life from the earliest days. I'm curious yeah. And in this way that i wouldn't have known was remarkable or even to name because it was just there and my dad did also live in northern alberta. There was yeah definitely split my time and a few few homes as per custody agreements and my parents both moving a lot and so where he lived in northern alberta was was on a a cre- reserve and and he was a healer.

We would go to another camp where he ran fast for people. And i would my sister and i would just be running around in the field and he would be doing that work. And so you know as a kid i didn't i. Of course. I took it for granted that the swizz present in my life and that i had access to ceremony which of course for a lot of indigenous people. There's been you know. A break for a lot of heartbreaking reasons and so i feel really grateful that it was just there i mean the soaraway. I feel about it now. Is that you know as a teenager. I was like okay. Whatever dad and then by the time in my twenties i was ready to come back and say okay wait. Can we now talk about this. Can you share these teachings with me. More you know explicit way was when he was was sick and when he died and so i wasn't able to kind of learn more from him in a more direct way but but of course it it shaped me and it was. It was there. My child had the. I mean even just to know that this is a part of you from the earliest days until learn through us moses through just being around it. I think that's so powerful.

And if it like so often so many of us really know nothing about you. Know not just our parents as human beings but also the lineage that you know their parents and their parents and their parents and and what may have been lost along the way. Yeah and it's interesting. What gets shared. Because my dad was also french that my last name couture was my dad's last name but i know i know about french. Canadian like i would feel a bit shakey thing. I say a french canadian ancestry. I don't feel like. I'm part of that cultural group in the present whereas my from my mother's side she scandinavian and her parents lived in new norway. Alberta says it all right there and and so there was. There was some presence of that. You know adhere the stories and some of the words and the way. They talked about being norwegian and swedish. Was there but dia french. But i kinda i don't really talk about some like i wouldn't know what to say so it's interesting with the lineage.

"They would just be photographed. What they were the the concept with the campaign was the message was for the future about children right and the notion was. We're talking about stigma. How do you talk about what nobody would speak about. And that was there was this. Silence was deafening. And then i had to decide what they were going to wear. And i figured i can't put them in my shoes because then this campaign was purpose. It's going to look like it's self serving it. I didn't want to send that message to anyone to send it to the viewer or anybody else. So i said macintoshes bring anybody else's so they'd be barefoot and that at the end of the day turned that be even a bigger statement. They were barefoot. They were not even wearing shoes. And and how. The idea was to take out ads in publications and so i wasn't sure how we're gonna do it. I had a personal budget and there was no such thing as pro bono advertising also in those days so we got older models degree to do it and then with children in these were two groups that were not stigmatized. Everybody appreciated beautiful woman and we left l. children. We didn't have a problem with them until they had grew up. Had opinions so we had this beautiful photograph that any took of all these women in the message was for the future about children. And then in small letters support aids research and didn't say kenneth cole anywhere on it it said kenneth cole under a list of sponsors and he really were like not. This was like it was a gamble. I wanted people to know i was behind. I wanted him though. I use my limited fragile resources for this. But i but i was very careful. My bro- to shapiro creative and frank conceptual bringing everybody together and that campaign. Many ways changed me. It changed. The man chased the brand and a changed my business and in a in a profound way because all of a sudden that you became more focused on a social mission. We became empl. What we were doing just became important and it became meaningful. I'm looking at that ad. It's so cool to sing all these young faces christie brinkley. Andie macdowell and paulina the purse cove. And all these kids really cool so at the time. So i now had i had the ad and iran and i started calling all the magazines if anybody would run this for us because i didn't have the budget and And i had everybody had done everything. Pro bono in. That wasn't really what you did in those days. That notion didn't really exist out there. So yeah the models will did it and he did. Studio was donated hair. Makeup was donated even at cars donated speak picked. Pick up and The magazines i think the message twenty-three magazines for so long and At the end and then once it ran a couple we had a lot of other people calling for it or into it for free he. Also i am curious because this was sort of a foundational moment for your career and for you personally I you become the chair of amfar The the foundation for aids research which you helped raise hundreds of millions of dollars for you would go on to be involved in other causes that are quote unquote liberal or conservative liberal and you are openly liberal talked about that. I mean i mean is it is it. I mean you know some some companies and some business leaders can hide their politics. And i mean not only. Do you wear sleeve. You're married into the cuomo family. Are we got married in one thousand nine hundred seven to the sister of the current governor of new york and daughter of the former governor of new york i mean. Did you ever think maybe. I shouldn't be political because it could hear my brand or was it like a non. A non negotiable. But you look. I have been asked that question over the years and i tell people. I'm not political that. My messages are not political messages social messages. Or maybe human messages. Yeah but they're not so they've been there social messages. That have been politicized. But i don't talk about politics. And i have one or two occasions because i couldn't help myself but for the most part. I have made a very exerted effort for thirty plus years. Not to talk about things that i certainly in ways that i thought was political right so your business is really kind of come growing in the in the eighties and really your distribution model still through big retailers right because this is still heyday of department stores and where plots people get their clothes. And and and i guess in in like ninety four you decide to actually make a change to actually really focus on direct to consumer sales. What happened in ninety four. Was there like a catalyst that sort of inspired you to start to open up shops. What happened in ninety four. Was that landscape changed. When i started my business there was maybe seventy or eighty department store chains in the united states or the sun. Ten years later maybe fifteen or twenty consolidation after consolidations and some bankruptcies and then i woke up one day i think if i recall campo was trying to by federated department stores and these two stores that were ended up themselves leveraged and questionably solvent and. I said to myself that these guys are going to need to find economies because they don't exist today and they can't sell any cheaper so they're gonna have to buy better and it was likely going to mean is gonna take out the middleman and i'm the middleman and i didn't. I didn't like the way that felt. Why were you the middleman. You are selling your products to them but they could buy it directly from factories and then ticket. Oh i am no longer sell kenneth cole just by your shoes and not sell your similar shoes under other on labels. I'm not business anymore. Which was happening to some people so in west i. My brain was the destination than i had. No reason to exist in those stores. And i wouldn't i. I believe you didn't think that they will just continue to by kenneth cole. Shoes and sell them. I didn't i thought it certain point. They're going to eliminate the middleman if they could so. I needed to open stores. I needed to grow my presence. Increase my marketing. And i also knew that. I couldn't fund that i wasn't going to fund that be clear you had to fund that that he is building stores building stores. I'm just trying to understand though because the value proposition was your design. They couldn't steal your designs but there were other designs than if you don't see my design like a tree in the forest. I'm only as good as you know me to be. And if i'm not out there then. I don't exist when we come back in just a moment white kenneth decides to take the company public and why he takes a big financial loss to go private again. Stay with us. I'm guy rise in.

"A designer as a designer. I created a little package issues like but we could sell. Yeah i didn't even have a draw yet. I taught myself. I drove at the years At that point. I didn't did you ever think of yourself as a creative person in when you were younger. I think i had a an interest in things that were creative. But i wasn't. I never really looked in the mirror and saw that in me. You wouldn't say hey. I'm a designer. I'm an artist. It wasn't something that i had ever aspired to see. You have this You're designing shoes. And by the way you have a co founder. A guy named sam edelman but tell me about. Sam sim worked with me at at oh greco and when i left sam said if you leave. I'm going with you. Because i'm not staying here so it was as much as i had a new head. Rehab cassandra's also a good friend. I had an how much fun it would be in how how great it would be to have him. I was reluctant to do it to my father. Because i didn't want him to think that i took anybody or anything so eventually when san made equipment wasn't staying the same join me and then we worked in my apartment on the east side for several months. I don't think we went out side. Except when italy to make make the shoes it took a couple of trips you worked in your apartment building that like criminal business plan. We were creating the brand setting up people to connect with. I guess when i got daily warriors finding a lawyer finding an accountant and how by the way how many shoes how many different designs. We're going to be the first collection women's shoes only and how many different skews which you have so maybe three times and each and maybe three or four or five cars bright. How many shoes did you in total. Did you need to make so going through this process. I didn't have a sense of how many i just knew that i could only show what i thought was great. I just wanted to create choosing people. Wanted hopefully have less than what the demand was but enough to make it all. Come together out. The one thousand nine hundred eighty two version of kenneth cole is not inspiring a lot of confidence in me right now so but i but i knew i figured out you know people said to me when i left my father guy. They said to me well. What would you have done if it didn't work. And what i don't tell people and i didn't tell people is that i didn't know what it was. I knew i figure it out along the way and that it might keep changing. I wasn't sure. Kaiser shoes and i wasn't sure who else going to sell them to and i wasn't sure what the price would be. But i knew. Somehow i would find product people would want and i would deliver it in a way that people would find compelling tell me about about the name kenneth cole. I mean it's great name. Your name was was it the idea from the beginning to call it chemical no. I couldn't take the chance of of a made up name and finding out many many months or years later whether it was acceptable and not through the trademark process. We have google in those days. But i also knew you can usually get away with your own name as long as it's your name so i called the kenneth cole and i knew probably make my mother happy so i did that then. I ran the italy. Because i didn't have credit and i figured i'd get credit from a from a shoe and i did so. I had a factory. They agreed to do this. The factory was single production line and then when the production is stopped at six o'clock workers went. Home is when kaiser who is the motorist worked with and i would work all night long on the elections so once once workers go home ten basically rent out the factory for your line because he had a religious to the factory they have it and use it and he felt bad for this kid from new york. Who was desperate to have a collection within thirty days because we are getting close to market. Sorry just click. You would have this collection done in thirty days. I did because i knew that. I needed to get to market quickly because i was going to run out of money didn't and at the time i think. Sixty plus percent of businesses. Probably even more today start up. Businesses fail first year. Because people underestimate the amount of time it takes before this return on that investment. So i knew i to get to market quickly and i knew bitten december something that was going to show and i needed a collection by then this is market week. She showed it was. It was more see you. You know you've got this deadline. You wanna preview your line of shoes at market week which is convention in new york. This is in december of nineteen eighty two. So what's the story you want to get there and do you. Do you meet your deadline. You get your shoes done on time for the show. So so i yeah. I'm doing that. But in the process i needed to be prepared to show the shoes because and the time of teachers room at the hilton hotel. Not out of individuality and that a lot of creativity was not without significant. Cost because you take a room yet. The decorate through did it models that was market week. Was it was a bunch of people with rooms at hilton hotel yet. About eleven hundred thirty four thirty some odd companies perform and the buyers would just come and they'd walk. The force could ruin tramps room. They go a more like into the rooms. They knew people they had done. Business with and the alternative was a big fancy showroom within the to block radius of the hilton hotel which quickly. I didn't have the money the time to do that either. So neither alternative really worked and on a whim. I spoke to a person who was in the trucking business. And i asked him if i could figure out at a park your truck on the corner of sixth avenue fifty six street on december second nineteen eighty two which it to me but kind of truck like a forty foot trailer. You asked him to borrow it. Why because i was thinking that. If i maybe i could actually show the shoes and a truck on the corner because he was going to be on that corner at one point in the press instead of being at the hilton or a showroom you will just have a truck parked there forty foot strut the people that go into the container of the truck and see your shoes creek so i asked him. Could we just means that. You can't park a bicycle new york for ten minutes on a truck for three days but if you could figure out how to do it not went to decorate so i called the mayor's office yet. So how does one get permission. Department patrol the sixty seven hundred. Sixty the sunday. Don't new york. We can permission. To circumstances if you're utility company servicing the streets or if your production company shooting folk motion picture. Because we're going through and i love new york campaign nearly eighty right so that afternoon went to stationery store changed the company's the letterhead and kenneth owing to kind of go productions inc and then we file for a permit synthroid with that after new him for permission to shoot a full length motion picture quote the birth of a shoe company to you filed a permit file. Four perm yes. Four permit to shoot a film called the birth of a shoe company. Okay right and we open for business on december second and we had to new york duman companies to.

"See it that way at the age of twenty two. I think i wanted to understand notch what my father did. But what was behind the curtain and endowed. How does this work. And what made it so distinctive. And why was he able to do it differently than other people and so i was. I realized very quickly. That what distinguished. What he did from whatever else did was what happened in the sample. So that's where i. I spent much my summer that year and i learned how to make patterns at how choose were constructed and how they were crafted and by the way. I've just think of this as a dad myself. Like if my kid joined my business. Which i don't want them to want them do their own thing. But i would be so proud with be like just gushing. Be amazing was your dad. Doesn't strike me that. Your dad was that kind of guy but he must have been pretty proud than his kid. Was this comforting. No he was but he. He pushed his heart as he felt. He could in the way that he would. Well how would you push. It was always how big is big. And how good is good and He was careful with the compliments. And the Encouragements but i. But i know he was proud and Shoes in his factory for our company In that six year period where you worked for your dad's business and really start to understand the business like two years in your involved in launching a whole new line of shoes. I think they're candies design to targeting young women. What was that initiative. Have that comes out. So we were making shoes in brooklyn and there were hundred steps that went into making the most simple shoe and the slightest thing that would go wrong. If you're missing any of those hundred puss components were not in business anymore. And in the best case scenario you can only make so many issues and the worst case. You're out of business. You nothing so so that my business model. I struggled with and then we went over to europe and bought some shoes and started selling them here in the united. What was it was. Yeah what was it like a mary. Jane was a piece of leather. That was stapled onto a poly propylene bottom with a high heel and it was a what living john war in the movie crease. And what you identified like you. You found those shoes in europe and usa. Hey we should sell shoes like these. Actually i think my father. And i found them and then we came back in. I started to sell them and But you weren't making them you are. You're still importing shoes. We started importing them and then it became very clear that in that sort of a business model. If you do a lot of business you you make a ton of money to do a little bit. You make less. But you don't have all the overhead that we had in a domestic factory and it was very compelling so so we converted the business eventually to that that became the business because it grew very quickly so he shut down the factory part. He and focused on importing shoes and then reselling them correct. When did that happen. Would you remember year. So by joined the business. Seventy six maybe seventy nine eighty so this was the new model and you were now focused on important shoes that you could identify mainly from europe. I guess and it actually boosted the business at the business grew as a result of that exponentially and very quick. Oh so eventually. Initially the factory became a warehouse the existing factory. And then eventually we move to a bigger facility and then left vacated those offices so clearly you catch the bug the shoe bug after six years of working with your dad this becomes something not just interesting but you see this as your future you decide to leave in one thousand nine hundred eighty two to start your own shoe company. I guess you're on twenty eight years old at the time. Why did you decide to leave your dad's business and go off on your own. He and i didn't agree on a lot of things. And i didn't have the right to not the hundred percent compliant supportive gap and i felt that i was young enough and probably not even that i could just go do it and figure it out independently so when day inside. That's what i'm gonna do. Did you argue a lot or was it more that your dad was my way of the highway and you didn't argue with him i would argue but invariably he had his way that he felt thinks should be done and i said to myself. Why am i putting him through this. And why am i putting this through it. So then it is an point. I figured my relationship is only gonna get better with him. If i if. I do this independently so when you told your dad you want to start your own thing on your leaving was he was he. Was he hurt. was he supportive. He was too proud to be visibly hurt anyway. And he wasn't supportive but he the same time he was supportive but he wasn't encouraging that's better way to put it and when i did tell him was gonna leave one day which was shocking to him. He'd said you'll be back. It's very hard out there. And you're gonna be back his message at which point. I knew there was no way that was going to happen. So he says. I'm gonna leave your office for you. I know you'll you'll be back so when you said. Hey i want to start my own shoe thing. He didn't say hell. I'll i'll i'll write you a check to help get you started. No not just the opposite. And i'm not sure i'm not sure it would have taken it either because i became equally proud so you you wanted to start your own shoot. Company obviously had experienced now some connections to two factories. But how did you have given money to start it very little put. What i did was i went over to italy. That's where i had been working with candies. And and i found an agent who had a lot of credibility in the marketplace and that agent by nature of my relationship with that agent. I had probably more credibility than i was entitled to in the marketplace. This is an agent. Who helped you find factories to make your shoes and everything was. I created everything at the time to be variable and so the agent would get paid only. If i did business in to the business they would make more and those asian. I got opening account which was a big deal like a line of credit line of credit and aren't very early on in my career that it's much easier to get credit from a factory that needs business in italy than from an american bank. That doesn't see you go to factor and you could say. Hey i need to make this order. And i'll pay you ninety days or something like that and i had an arrangement with the bank where they were going to give me. Eighty percent of the receivable once i in voiced it so i would fly a goods to new york and we ship them out because we presold them. And who did you buy like. Who did you sell them to the same places that you are selling candies to the same department stores actually more elevated my first year in business i told sacs macy's bloomingdale's sold the bergdorfs. I think you wanted this to be different than your dad's business you want to make like higher end shoes that you would actually design yourself. I wanted to create aspirational shoes for for that. Aspirational woman and And i also did not want to compete with him. And i called the handful of customers that his current sales were not calling on and then my father said okay take them to where news which is the only industry publication time and i did. That is well. When i i met with women. Vivian infantino. who was the fashion editor. And vivian wrote a story about these first few shoes that i ever made and she said by this new up and coming designer kenneth cole and i never looked at myself as that as.

"From npr. It's how i built this show about. Innovators preneurs idealists and the stories behind the movements they built. I'm guy rise on the show today. How kenneth cole launched his show business at of a forty foot truck in midtown manhattan and grew the business into one of the best known brands in the fashion industry. There's a basic principle in business when it comes to politics. Stay away far away but the past four years have tested that view especially because lots of consumers want the brands. They support to take a stand on issues. They care about things like racial justice and voting rights and climate action. And it's meant that a lot of big companies have increasingly been doing that. Even at the risk of alienating a certain segment of their customer base but long before it became fashionable to weigh in on controversial topics. The shoe company. Kenneth cole was doing exactly that in nineteen eighty six when the aids crisis was just coming into focus. Kenneth cole began to take out full page ads in magazines promoting aids awareness and research and this was at a time when many people in america refused to even acknowledge the disease in that same year. Nineteen eighty-six the company ran a campaign calling for strict gun control in nineteen ninety-two for strong abortion-rights in ninety-three for equal civil rights for members of the lgbtq community and throughout all those campaigns the brand kept growing in fact by the mid two thousand the company's revenue hit over half a billion dollars kenneth cole. The company's namesake started out with very little money but he managed to turn the brand into one of the best known american fashion labels. Kenneth was born in brooklyn in the nineteen fifties. His dad was in the shoe. Business but following in those footsteps was not part of kenneth instead. I was going to be the shortstop for the new york. Mets in the milton. Kids in your neighborhood. Probably right wake up every once a day and i realized that was not likely to happen. Yeah actually my first job was selling peanuts shea stadium. I don't know if you know that it was also creative endeavor getting that job because it was during the world series in nineteen sixty nine the miracle mets and there were no lights so there were no night games and right. They needed kids to work during the day and they city was very tough so they insisted that the students or had notes from the principles that they could take that time off from school so i got my principal to give me a note saying that. He thought it was worthwhile cultural experience and he endorsed by employment at chase stadium. So you got to see the mets play in nineteen sixty nine world series. I did. And i. Also by the way i leveraged that job to get one at madison square garden where it got to see within again and tell me a little bit about your parents who first of all. What did your parents do for living both work. No my mother for a little bit. Did some charity work. My father was Was an entrepreneur. He was in different businesses. he was later on. He was in the shoe business yet. Smokes you factory. In a very tough par new york at the time co williamsburg at tough part of newark williamsburg. Wow not so tough today. Interesting things have changed. Yeah and and what was the name of the factory el greco is. I mean the greek. It's the greek and spanish. Yeah and what was that name that come from. I don't think he had acquired a small business. And i think that's what it was eventually. He assumed it so he may choose and sold them in department stores at the time women's shoes but the last thing on my mind was though s thing i would have imagined myself doing and the least masculine thing i could imagine myself doing. What's going to the woman business. So it wasn't something i ever contemplated. What was your relationship like with your dad. It was good. He was he was a tough guy. He was a marine war to veteran world. War two veteran as he deployed overseas he was he served in the philippines. User ago governor well and it was on several missions and He was relentless he was very determined a lot from many ways what to do and in some cases what not to do he was always. It was working much more than he wasn't I always reflect upon that generation. Because i made a point to be the opposite with with my kids to the degree i was able to but work came first and second and we were in third but he was focused. He was determined and he was. He was relentless. So when you set out to go to college. In in the early seventies he went to emory. I take it like you didn't really contemplate eventually working with your dad know to went to school thinking i'd probably become a lawyer and i studied political science and law was something i believed would create interesting alternatives for me going down the road so i was admitted to a couple of schools. I did apply and then my father had his superintendent. Who is running the factory at the time resigned to go into competitions and that factory was a verbal hand that fed us so i felt an obligation that summer to immerse myself in it. And so we're in the business to the degree. That i could what your dad said you said. I need you to help me out at the factory. He didn't say that he was too proud. When my mother kind of encouraged it and he welcomed then. I wasn't thinking that this would be something. I would jump in with both feet. But i knew once i started doing it. I also knew that. I needed to commit to it due to learn it and to quickly have the respect of the people i was working with and i did. I learned it and i kept. I was fascinated by it. And i kept gravitating towards the sample room where where i watched. All these components is piece of whether plastic that was the hero or would and then a metal shape of a foot that became was the last and all these things put together in certain way became a shoe. And how was it that your whole life you were around this world and exposed to it and then because i agree i would find it fascinating to see the pieces of cut leather and the wouldn't heal and people sewing the pieces together. But why do you think you you began to.

Thanks for taking the time. Congratulations tell me about this process though. Like how strange was the process for you? Considering what we're dealing with in the world right now I mean it's it's out here unique situation so You know it's been definitely a unique process so far but definitely you know making almost of trying to go out there and put my best foot forward when you when you were sitting there watching the draft and the chargers they obviously traded to go get you they they they like to and they want. They made a Trade Commission. They could land you. What did you have a sense that they that they were interested in? You like that did. Did they talk to you in the process or does your age? No Yeah I mean to me on this you know I. It completely caught me by surprise how I talked to them at the combine it. They went on my former meeting. So obviously I knew some type of interest there and he'll felt like we you know we connect really well in the meeting and In other than that really was was it to be honest. Um You know go to the recent weeks leading up to the draft I've seen them in my day before pretty much. Everything got shut down. I seen one of their scouts and he just asked me if I was healthy. 'cause I had a little hamstring Hickel a bit the Columbine and You know you know after that. They called me probably about a week later seeing if I was going to do type of Workout virtually but I mean literally other than those those conversations after the meeting at the combat we had spoken so You know really Kinda call. You surprised I was sitting there on the couch and I get the call and You know it was. It was a cold from from Indianapolis. I was confused and I just answered it. You know then you know to hear the charges you know say they will go to draft the next big trade with New England was just you know just have emotions took over. Oh that's funny. That's he worked for the colts and he worked for the bills actually before that too. So that's what happens. You get these guys. They worked in different places and they don't change their cell phone number. So I see that catches you off guard who was with you during the draft process. While you're waiting. Oh that's Jeff I have my my parents and my girlfriend and my sister and my longtime trainer timber and we just they're just taking it all in Finally got the call. And when you're celebration begun so I read somewhere that you actually practiced what your reaction was going to be when you were drafted. I mean it's pretty out there to you know being a first round. Pick with something that you know. I changed that for a long time. Go to that I wrote down and said I was going to do in high school. Something tweet our high school You know yeah I actually you know would acted out with my family and my girlfriend in college. I would always tell her. You know like you know when I get a chance to walk state this was going to look like and you know it was definitely surreal moment. Able to get the call and be happy. So how do ya where'd you? Where would you practice this like a house on up on stage like what L. L. Realistic? Tommy would be at the house. Oh Okay College College. It would be like in my little small dorm room to be honest. You'll be so funny. She would be cracking me being like those small dorm room around like I was walking across the state so accused him of mind. Definitely you know a best to be able to compensate. Kenneth Murray newest member of the chargers first round pick. They traded up to get him out of Oklahoma. How did you do though like you? Were practising all these years to do it. How did the finished product compared to how you practiced it? If I can compare it to the I went into the situation on it I I wouldn't. I didn't have any idea where we feel like actually be jacket in the first round and I think that that's just hold true. I'll just get the call you know doing that time. I'm not really a nervous person. I really don't don't get nervous about pretty much anything I can. I just remember just going tonight. You know just. I was like the first time I ever was sitting down and I was actually like sweating it like I'll just is ready to give the call and finally it came on. It definitely wasn't a allow night so you you're known for a lot of different things athleticism and preparation studying. What what do you think you'll be known for With the chargers when you when you when you finally get out on the field here her dominant force in the middle A guy in the middle of this branch it has a presence about You know you just feel the passion on the love of the game and I think that's exactly what you're GonNa see when I when I get all the field. You know what you have before you guys all about preparation in about just over the game. So I definitely thing you know when you when you when you see me on a feel out. Different other charges. He's just not just a presence there in the middle twenty-third pick in the first round charges. Trained up to get him. Kenneth Murray joining us here on the Sodano show George Sodano Ramona. Shelburne with you here on. Espn seven ten here in La. So I want to get back to the draft thing one more for one more thing. Clearly your teammate very famously was became an Internet meme CD LAMB. You give him any grief you said attacks you have some fun at his expense or no. I seen it I think. I think it's pretty crazy. Actually it really broke away to their book just seemed like such innocent situation but we definitely talk. You know after after the job and have just sent congratulations. I know from me and him. You know this is something that we bosa wanting to be doing. Our players buffets around patient on being able to accommodate us so not just having that we moved grammar tichy measuring so. We're all excited about the new stadium. That's going to be opening up this year. The new uniform bowl teams are taken into the into the stadium. How you feel about this charter uniforms. There's there's a lot of people feel about those might be some of the best in the NFL. Now I know they sure I definitely see myself looking real real good and also I can't wait to put it on put on US colors and daring make. Let's Kenneth how does it feel though for you like just I mean? Oklahoma obviously is one of the premier programs in the country. Anyway but the fact that you are so good at what you do. But how much does it help to have prepared against the last couple of seasons against professional quarterbacks guys who you practice with each and every day where? Jalen now going to the eagles you know cuyler Baker. All these guys that you were able to practice with that played that position in the NFL or we'll play that position in the NFL. How much of a benefit was that used been? You know they're saying that you know iron sharpens iron. Is this just through especially when it comes to planning a place? I Oklahoma Is it so many great players you know every year? It's going to be always some somebody coming up with is be always you know. Some good player Players that are there so I mean it just makes the game so much fun and it just makes a practice where where you truly do get better because it's just such a great competition so say I wouldn't be a plan I am today without Each one of those guys you know our battles that we had back and forth in practice you know we we definitely go back and forth and batteries brakes so I I read That you grew up in sort of a different type of family than other than other people How how does that shape you? How's the family that you grow up and you had you have two biological brothers and sisters and then three adopted of brothers and sisters. How how's that changed you? Has IT affected? You think this is truly just taught me how to be self to be honest And I think what it really know the biggest lesson I learned from that assist. You know what your gratitude is. What what it's like to to be not true and truly grateful for something you know you know for me you know. It's it's something that I see every day. You know me at home. It's my brother can't walk and can't talk and no it's kind of for me is kind of You know it's a it's a different point of view because I was able to see them go through different stages of their lives and you know see them go from you know. Nabi never walked to walk in. And then you know. Some type of event a medically cons about it now. They're not able to walk again. And you know just seeing you know. Run-up me working me playing sports and seeing you know the type of enthusiasm and joy that put on their face on and to see them not being able to partake because of this situation is this just makes you just degrade referred just a small spin. It would've been a talk on just being able to simply tell my mom and dad. I feel sick something like that that you know some people you know you know. My brothers and sisters don't have the liberty to do And so this is just really being very everything. Kenneth Murray Twenty third pick overall in the draft first rounder of your La chargers. Thank you so much for the time. We're looking forward to talking to you more often and hope you are safe and healthy and you and yours are safe and healthy. And we'll talk to you soon.

"One of the finest pieces of film school written in the foot sue Vista. He's a therapist. He's still being played today by console. CONSTRUES thera means life has always fascinated me. He's not only famous freezing science for advancing music. He went onto make advances in spying technologies careers. Albert Kalinski again is spy work for the Russians was very high tech in way ahead of its time. The two most I famous devices that he invented buzzes them in the nineteen forties were used against Americans and also against other European embassies disease specifically there is the great seal bog which was an antenna that was hidden inside a wooden carving of the great seal of the United States dates and presented by Soviet pioneers or Soviet boy scouts we would call them with great fanfare on July Fourth Nineteen forty five to to April Harriman. Who was the American Ambassador to Moscow at that point and he hung it with great fanfare behind his desk because it had been through through all sorts of sweepers and and so they put it on the wall but hidden inside was this insidious device and it was attached to an antenna and the Eagle's beak in the wooden carving had two little holes in so anyone speaking in Rome their voice would go through and be picked up by the the antenna go into the little resonant cavity but the half of the device that wasn't present in the room was president few doors down down the street eight and that was the receiving device and it was a microwave device? That could be turned on it will. There are no batteries. No electricity in the seal itself so they simply turned the microwave device and a hood beam out than the conversations in the room and that went on for seven years in the American bazzars Hauser's residents during the Cold War very sensitive talks. The other device was something called Buron which translates as snow storm and it wasn't is an infrared light device. That would actually beam light toward window glass of various embassies and Thurman figured figured out that if you focus this infrared beam on certain areas. We know glass. You would actually pick up the vibrations of speech going ONS Inside these very sensitive rooms in these consulates so for for that. He received a Stalin in prize from Stalin itself. So those were two of his very clever and wonderful bugging devices. Although he was a maker of spy equipment it was the relationship between music in the body that was really Leon. theorems passion the Fareham in really. He is the beginning of history in terms of electronic music. And it's really interesting to see that the human body was a key part of that concept. That's it's attitude Tanaka. He's a professor of media computing at Goldsmiths College University of London I've a PhD and computer music from Stanford University. So I've always he's been putting together computing technologies with music so I'm composer and performer as well as being a professor so my research is concerned with human human interaction and sound. This means I'm interested in ways to interface with the body and as a musician and composer how to create new synthesizer synthesizer sounds without and perform turning the body itself into musical instrument. Which I think is quite close to their men's original vision? The technologies is that I use are picking up physiological signals directly from the nervous system of body to do the same thing this allows us to be expressive musically and gives us a direct connection between musically intention in our creativity and the sound comes out the next steps I think are are to analyze and understand the complexity of human musical gesture and for this machine. Learning technologies are the things and I'm working on Professor Tanaka explained. How exactly it works? Okay so the signal that I'm working with from the body is called the electromyograms. These are the electrical impulses made by the central nervous system in creating muscle contraction. We've created here in the lab a circuit board. It's like medical technology where you're able to stick GEL electrodes like electro-cardiogramme electrodes on the arm muscles. And in fact the heart is a muscle in here. Instead head of the heartbeat where amplify muscle tension in the forearm these electrodes snap electrodes plugged into Circuit board that digitize ties the Electrical Signal and Senate by Bluetooth to the computer once we get this information in the computer it's data that can be processed in any way. Hey that we would. It's very audio like but non musical signal to which we do feature extraction and signal processing and machine learning learning to map to musical parameters so a hundred years later and people are still taking on the concepts developed by Leon Behrman he was groundbreaking and inventing the first purely electronic instrument and if anything it was an invention that just came too soon. Here's Lydia Cavanaugh again. Camp Imagine this is the very beginning of the twentieth century. The electricity is just produced. The world's just discovered covered it just starts working an harder work with electricity quite mechanical way. This huge shoulda delayed us which huge nope so it is very mechanical way of thinking Saruman something so ethereal it is quite difficult to understand. Why and what you can do with this so it is just out of that world and the end of the twentieth century when we start to open the door just by movement? Don't we start. Used joist equal the malls. You know something that you cannot say. Exactly how many centimeters are moving. Hugh you're doing it more by intonation and today the touch pad is something about you really Slot and stop by intuition. Yeah when you find the information you stop you don't count how many times you slide. How many millimeters between Donald Donald and other information? What about so you do in more human way by movement by free movement this happen in just just in the recent twenty twenty-five but several years I think the therapist has a pretty exciting future ahead of it largely because the number of players this is increasing all the time? There are really really fantastic videos being released all the time there on new compositions being written by composers there there are new. Compensation is being written by by classical composers. The repertoires increasing as the number of players increases the chance for that to be new really good players infuses scientists musicians are still influenced by lev circa. Vh termine and it looks like the next one hundred years will be the place for Science Heinsohn music to truly come together as anniversaries go. This is one where it looks like. The future is finally catching up with the past. Thanks for listening to page. And as we listen to the Radio Science Orchestra Featuring Charlie draper.

"kenneth" Discussed on WTF with Marc Maron Podcast
"All right. Let's do this. How are you? What the fuckers what the fuck buddies? What the fuck Sers? What's happening? Marc maron. This is my podcast. How's it going? Are you? All right. This is it this is the week the beginning of the holiday season. This is where we've already weighed. Whether maybe something you still store on the fence. I don't know we've already weighed whether or not we're going to have people over we're going to have family over. We're going to go see our families. We're not gonna see our families. We're going to go to a thing someone else's house. We don't really like that much. But we don't have any other plans, and we can put up with it for a night there. Okay people, but we don't really hang out with them any other time, but it's nice to be around other people with families and whatnot. If we're not going to go see our family. Maybe you're doing that thing. Or maybe you're just having a quiet night at home avoiding the entire thanksgiving event and situation. Maybe you do that. You just have like a sandwich, maybe a soda, and you kind of. Relish in the fact that you've turned your back on this family and national tradition. But yet you still watch the dog show the next day because that's something to be excited about the grooming. Right. All those different shapes of dogs purebreds. That's exciting the parade. Not great anyways. I guess my point is how are you fortifying your mind and heart improper -ation for I? Yeah. I don't want to say confrontation, maybe some of your just can't wait. You can't wait to get to mom and dad's house or grandma's house or maybe got kids and they're excited to see grandma. Even though you don't really like her that much. I don't know what your situation by. No. It's on your mind. It's on my mind, but I'm focusing on food today on the show. I talked to Kenneth Lonner gin. Kenneth Lonergan is a playwright and screenwriter you might know him from winning an Academy Award for Manchester by the sea. He also did the film Margaret wrote and directed that. And you can count on me was his film several plays. I just saw one of them in New York. That's been revived. I think I don't know if it's called a revival if it's just put up again is it still a revival if it's not old as hell but the Waverley gallery, which he wrote in two thousand is now up in New York. It's got Elaine may and it Joan Allen is in it. Michael, Sarah is in it. Great writer, and I was a little intimidated. I always assumed I'm going to be outgunned. Intellectually? By people who do who right theater? I I don't know why that is I guess I have a place in my in my heart. And in my mind that is threatened by people that have the wherewithal to write plays. I guess I put a lot of stock in the possibility of theater, and what it can do. And I find that some plays or more abstract. Those are the ones that always get me after I think it was early on when I started reading or seeing Sam shepherd plays Mike where the fuck does this come from. But I'm still sort of a intimidated and and. Nervous when I talked to play rights, but Kenneth Lonergan and myself had a great conversation. He came to the hotel in New York, and we sat there and listened to sirens through the window and talked about New York and about plays in about all kinds of stuff. It was actually a interesting thing happened after. After we the.
