"Or 50 of us drifted into the church, trying to get there early to make sure that we could get seats and everything. But then they cleared the church for one of only very few times in history. Filled it with cops, took bomb sniffing dogs inside, made us wait outside. While they searched everything, then they opened up the doors and let us in again. The entire local and network press are in there. The mayor is in there. Koch went into defend the cardinal. The police commissioner was there to defend the cardinal. Now meanwhile, mind you, there may be three dozen of us who plan to do anything and no one plans to do anything more than just read a statement. So now there are hundreds of cops, the mayor, the police commissioner, bomb sniffing dogs, several hundred seminary orients who have been brought in as decoration for the front area. Undercover cops is ushers everywhere. And the place is quite tense. And the cardinal is standing up and mumbling and making pronouncements about the coming disruption. So the sermon started, we started doing our prearranged thing, the cop started forming all over the state. What were your pre arranged things? Me and others lying down in the middle.

"These were a bunch of different people, different companies, different researchers doing it on their own. No, they got help. But they were permitted to do it. And so that's what we need. A system of empowering everybody because you don't know who's going to do it. If you think you got all the answers or you're the smart people and everybody else is dumb, then you're dead. That's just why this multiple intelligence theory so grab me. Because that's what I have found. I mean, I'm dumb in most ways, but I'm pretty smart in an area. And so what are you going to throw me out with the bathwater and throw everybody out? Who isn't good at whatever whatever's in? I am, I want to send you a present. I want to send you a present after a week. Have you ever seen, have you read my book on gifted? Intelligence redefined? No, no, I haven't. I'm going to send you a copy. Be so essentially my theory of personal intelligence is that we need to unlock the potential people by drawing on their dreams and desires and engagement forms of engagement. So I think that's yet another thing for us to nerd out about someday. If you want it, I would love to send you a copy. No, I'd love to. No, that's right down my alley. Here's something that I hadn't picked this up from you. So I can management and I got out of your book, it says under ideal conditions and I'll skip the word here in the middle. There would be a mutual selection between the person and his self actualizing work, his cause, responsibility, call, vocation, task, and so forth. So he said, there is an interaction, a mutual suitability like a good marriage or a good friendship, like being designed for each other. That's our goal in the company. And obviously, we can't, we don't although in some areas we do. We've just helped people find new roles and some of them are giddy. They're so thrilled with their new rule because of the whole thing fits them rather than just part of it fits them. And the results just are great, both for them and for everybody. Well, let me read you one of my favorite books. So thank you for this. We're going to start using this quote. Oh, did you read that? Commission on our results. Is that a quote from a transcend? That I know. No, yeah, that is. Oh, yeah, that I recorded mazel to the title of the why of purpose. Okay, let me read to you a quote now, okay? And this is a quote. Charles Koch, talking about his north star. Quote, my north star remains a society in which individuals can realize their potential, a society of mutual benefit in which individuals succeed by creating value for others. It would be a more just inclusive prosperous and peaceful society than any yet seen. Such a future is within our reach if all of us play our part if all of us believe in people, I just want to thank you so much for the amazing contributions you've made in this world. And you said, quote, at age 85, I'm still busy being born. And I want to kind of give the last word to you to kind of tell me, you know, what are you busy being born doing these days? I am trying to better understand and apply principles and learn new principles. But mainly, we have, I have over a hundred principles I regularly use. And I'm constantly trying to find the gaps between what I'm doing. And what we as an organization are doing. And I constantly challenge all our people, okay, okay, that's great. And I get criticized for this. Well, let's celebrate. Okay, I'll sell right here for ten seconds. But now we've got to work on how we do better. The gap between what we're doing and what we could be doing to create value for others in a way that benefits all of us. It's mutually beneficial. And so that's, and then how do we do that in society? And so that's my life's work, and I have a long way to go. So I'm learning every day, trying to learn every day, how to, how to do that better, and how to be more effective, because as we see in society, we've got a long way to go. And we sure do. And mazel has this phrase virtue pays. So it sounds like maybe a nice way of improving society is to make virtue more of build into the reward structure and the incentive structure of society than just profit. Yeah, I mean, his concept of synergy is right on. That's what we need to society that rewards synergy. Charles, thank you so much for being on my podcast. This is a real delight for me to chat with you. Hey, thank you, Scott. Thanks for having me. And once again, thanks even more for writing this book. It really thank you. Got me jazzed up as you can tell. Thank you. Thanks for listening to this episode of the psychology podcast.

"Further reaches of human nature. And Elizabeth found that for me in a used bookstore, then I've got personality and growth motivation and personality toward a psychology of being and you have transcend. Yeah, I've got transcend. I've got yours. And I've got I've also got McGregor, the human side of enterprise. That was probably the first one I read. And then I've got frankel's book. Man's search for me. And as I said in a rodent good profit, so Maslow and iac are the two authors that have probably influenced me the most. And then the two, what I call social entrepreneurs that are influenced by the rosa Frederick Douglass and frankel and the reason is that people are talking about that hierarchy of needs and you got to work your way up. Well, it's possible to go directly under the worst conditions to realizing your potential and being contribution motivated. And frankel and Frederick Douglass proved that. You remember the Frederick Douglass story? You will know, obviously, more about frankel, the probably than Frederick Douglass, or maybe not. Frederick Douglas was a slave, right? He was a slave. Yeah, but he was a slave house slave in Baltimore when he was like 8, and he saw the mistress teaching her kids to read. And so he went to teach me to read. And she said, okay, fine, she was doing it. And the husband came in and says, no, you can't teach him to read. He will be unfit to be a slave, if he learns to read. And so Frederick Douglass says, well, the reason I must slave I'm enslaved is not that I'm inferior is I'm kept ignorant. So he ingeniously, I won't go in details, taught himself to read. And then when he was sent back to the plantation, when he was 16, he was allowed to teach Sunday school. And he was secretly teaching the other slaves to read. And he says, and here's what he said. At last, I found a way to contribute. Wow, now that shows how powerful that is. And then when he escaped and he got his first job, it was moving a pile of cold, he got paid a dollar. He said, I'm not just a free man. I'm a free working man. So, I mean, you know, it brings tears to your eyes. And then frankel, his experience in the death camps, and dedicating himself to helping others. Rather than himself and he said, that's what kept me alive because then I had meaning I had purpose. That's why when he writes about meaning in your life and the important boy he someone to listen to will both of them are. So that's why I pay so much attention to it because they've lived. And that's our model for all the social entrepreneurs. We work with. We partner with and they're over 200 of them for just dealing with poverty and other ailments. And those are all people who either experience it personally or seen it firsthand. And it, I mean, it blows me away. What these people have gone through and how dedicated they are as Frederick Douglass was not to get vengeance for the abuses against them, but to but to help prevent others from having gone through what they did. I mean, that is, that is the ultimate in human nature. And so that's what I would hope for to have a society of meaning, where everybody found meaning in their lives. I love it. Can you tell me a little bit about the hashtag give together now that your organization stand together, put together? Yes. I mean, that was in to deal with with COVID. And yeah, we raised I think over a 100 million for that. Can you explain a little bit what it was about? Well, yeah, it was, it was that a lot of these programs, it took a long time to get the money. It's when people need it to give it to get it now. And these were these weren't people who were just didn't want to work or weren't doing it. These were people who were working their way out of poverty and because of COVID, they were knocked back. And so give them enough to give them a leg up. And then, and then develop communities where they helped each other. And if somebody needed something in this community, then they would help each other. So it was this whole concept of mutual benefit. And dedicating yourself to helping others, even though you're in need. And to give them enough resources to be able to do that. So that's what it was based on. But it really got a response. Yeah, I love this idea of empowering everyone to be contribution motivated. And you had talked about, well, you asked this question, had universities labs, businesses, and healthcare providers being able to fully contribute from the outset of the pandemic as opposed to distinguishing between essential workers and non-essential workers. How much better might the response have been? I thought that was a really, really important powerful question you asked in your book. Yeah, no, absolutely. No. And once again, this is, I mean, for example, no one was allowed to privately develop the test. Just the government agencies were and their tests failed. So it put us back several months. And just if that had been allowed, I may be like the vaccines..

"I want to have customers and people work for them, I got to start treating people with respect and she said it transformed my life. And I started getting straight a's. And that's the waste we're seeing with the current system. And so we broaden that to what we call empower. To empower show the teachers is a better way. And that is that it's this three dimensional education. To help them learn who they are, where they have an aptitude, where they have a passion, and learn all the things that are necessary. It's like my father used to tell me when I was little, he said, learn everything you can because you never know whether or come in handy. Then learn how to apply it in a way that in a way that other people will value and reward you for it. So then you have the mutual benefit. And this is what Maslow said so well. He said, when you have this kind of management in the company as well. We're a company tries to do that. It's revolutionary. And he said it was if you remember, he said that it was that education was the most important thing. And now he says, well, maybe business because in everybody has got to work somewhere and when they do in this kind of atmosphere, it changes their whole being in their whole approach when they have this opportunity to find their gift and apply it. So what we do now is the number one job of every supervisor and we have like 20 some thousand supervisors in our company is to help their people self actualize. Love it. And what that means is that they've got to help them find a gift and a passion. So design a role around them, not stick them in a role in something they're not good at and hate and then punish them for that. When we got when somebody is trying hard and they're failing, we take it, that's our fault. Now if you're not trying and you don't give a damn and you're destructive, then that's different. But if you're trying, then we've got to, we're going to find a role for you where you can succeed. And then to mentor them and give them the tools. And this is what technology is doing now to give them the tools and information so they can be more independent. They can as Maslow said. They can have ownership for what they're doing. Have more authority and then they really get turned on. And I can't tell you, I mean, like I told you about Pedro, we have so many examples now where either the employee took the initiative. I don't like this role. But if I'm in this, I think I'll be turned on and then we try them in that and their works. And they said, now I know what you mean by being self actualized. Or it can be some supervisor sees them and they have a talent that they could use better in a different role. So we're now we're building this I'm not saying we're perfect. We have a long way to go. But where we get that, I mean, the results just go through the roof. I love that. I love that. I'm really interested in transforming teachers and their purpose from teachers to self actualization coaches. Absolutely. I really trying to build up a coaching program for teachers that teaches them the latest principles of human development and human potential so that they can spot the strengths. And also the managers and supervisors sounds like you're trending them over there to be self actualization coaches as well. So if we target it from both ends, you know, we go a long way. And we're and that's what that's what we're trying to do in our education experiments too. And I mean, and that's what you thought is now being empowered is. That's what it is. And then we're working with Sal Khan. If you'd like to name Sal Khan. Yeah, yeah, he's great. So we have a partnership with him to take his materials and combine that with a coach. A live coach and these will be volunteers like somebody has retired and they're looking for some way to contribute. And they're good at math. So they were volunteer to help groups who are using cell con stuff but come in and tutor them, or it could be a high school student who has a gift in Matt, come in and help him. Or somebody who's good, verbally, or good at anything. And so now we're building this inventory and we have thousands of volunteers. People who are saying, I love this. This will be, this will be a blast. So we need to work more fully together. I know you've talked to some of our people at stand together, I think we're absolutely on the same page here. I mean, a 100%. So what I was reading believe in people, I basically I could have, I could have highlighted every sentence. Yes, yes, yes. I absolutely agree. And just how cool would that be to just transform education where teachers felt like their purpose wasn't just to manage the students, but to actually bring out their best potential. And just completely reframe the whole issue. Oh, it'd be so exciting wouldn't it? Oh yeah. No, that's our goal. Yeah, yeah. And then get businesses to stop hiring on credentials and start hiring on values and talent. And then, and then find roles that are designed roles around people's talents rather than sticking round pigs in square holes. Totally. I think our mutual friend Todd rose has a book with that title. We've been working for some time with Todd, I think, as you know..

"This course and I look forward to welcoming you to be a part of the transcendent community. Okay, now back to the show. Hey everyone, if you like the kinds of guests and themes we have on the psychology podcast, you're going to love the Jordan harbinger show. In each episode of Jordan's show, which Apple named one of its best of 2018, Jordan dives into the minds of fascinating people from scientists and authors to athletes to mobsters, spies and hostage negotiators. I recommend our listeners check out Jordan's conversations with Cal Newport on reimagining work in a world without email and Lisa Feldman Barrett, who talks about her 7 and a half lessons about the brain. Jordan's always focused on pulling useful, practical insights out of his fascinating guests, and we're not talking about pop psychology or wish washy self help stuff here. The episodes are often voted with bits of wisdom that you can use to legitimately change your mind and improve your life right away. I really enjoy the show and think you will as well. There's just so much there. Check out Jordan harbinger dot com slash start for some episode recommendations or search for the Jordan harbinger show. That's H a RB as a boy. IN as a Nancy GER, wherever you listen to podcasts. I was wondering during the course of your career, when has there been a conflict? Can you think of an example in your life where there was an opportunity presented to you or something that directly? Because that's when we kind of are most authentic, right? When it's challenged, not when it's not challenged. So yeah, I just want to give you any examples of that in your life when some of these fundamental principles of yours have been challenged and you had to make a tough decision. Well, we have failed and continually failed to fully apply our principles. And our success and so yeah, we've had many failures. I write in the books about shipping about dealing, not dealing with employees, narcissistic employees who have the idealized self and the more feedback we give them. Then the more destructive. So we need to apply the principle. They need to go somewhere else and get treatment. We can't. We can't do it. The more we try to help them, the worse they get. So that's a violation. And then safety problems. Particularly with companies, we acquired but with our own. And I remember preaching about, boy, we're having safety problems and other problems. We got to do better and just preaching rather than really getting in intervening and when we started having it affect their bonus and their position and their authority, then they started to change. So there have to be consequences to people. They have to be accountability. You can't just be lecturing. And that's a big mistake we made with our framework and applying these principles, you know, I thought, okay, we just talk and everybody get it and be turned on by all the concepts like I am. And that doesn't work. I mean, it works for some, but for most people, there have to be accountability. They have to have a cost to this behavior and then they say, okay, now I get it. You know, one way of freeing that, I would say, is yeah, motivating from within. And I think that this is really relevant to your really great distinction that you make between top down and bottom up organizations. You said top down earlier, but I thought it'd be worth it to actually explain a little bit to our audience what you mean by that difference. So could you please explain what bottom up and top down means in your model? Right. Well, yes, top down, it's what Hyatt called the fatal conceit. That you think you know better than everybody, how to do their job, how to run their lives. Everything. So, so rather than empower them and use their knowledge and help them develop and realize their potential and have meaning in their lives and get excited about what they're doing. And so they can innovate, you stifle control and stifle them and make them dependent on you. And we see that everywhere. And I'll give you some I mean, for example, the use of technology today. There are some companies who use it like in certain manual jobs to time them and watch their motions. And then they go in and there being no, if you move this way, you can do it quicker and do everything faster. And I mean, that's like treating people as a slave. Is that like McGregor's theory X? Yeah, exactly. Yeah, yeah. And so that's still out there. And so we've invested heavily in technology, but we try to use it to empower people to make the people's jobs interesting. And so they get turned on and I'll give you an example of this individual named Pedro was working in the night shift in the building, cleaning the building. And he wanted something better and he said, God, there's no future in this, so he took a job much higher pay, breaking up concrete. He was getting $25 an hour. And he said,.

"And you name it. And each one, I wouldn't take what they said literally. I would then try to find arguments against it. Because as who said that, if you know only your side of the case, you know little of that. I like it. I don't know who said it. Well, you know, we come to me. So I did that. And as I started finding these principles, then I had to apply them in every aspect of my life. Find out how to apply them in business in our family in my other relationships and my charitable work in everything. And as I did in each area, I would learn things that would help me in the other aspects of my life. So that was my real gift. It's not that I'm better at math than some mathematician or nearly as good or better at science than some, no, I'm not. But what I'm good at is taking abstract principles and applying them to get results. Yeah, that's still a gift. And that was through trial and error, a lot of failures. And then finding principles in the different disciplines that were consistent like what an economics fits psychology fits what in philosophy fits and sociology that's reinforcing and that worked through history that made people's lives better. Well, you know, I'm always so curious in kind of the seeds of this stuff because you said a lot of it was trial and error, which is certainly true. But you also had a gift in the knack for it. You said in your book that even at age three or so or three or four, you realize that you enjoyed math and you were better than the other kids in the school at math, isn't that right? It was a third grade. Third grade. So there are some seeds of even the interests we can say. You know, a lot of you see what these prodigies, even in very young, they have this rage to master. You've had a reach to master in multiple things, right? You also had a rage to master and understand the principles of helping to bring out the best in your employees when you had this major transformation that we could talk about that little transformation. Or that huge transformation. You said my task was clear. Change the company's culture to one of empowerment, not control. Can you tell me a little bit about before what Coke industries was right before that? Because you said you had some failures before that. And then what this led to that transformation? Well, Koch industries back, well, when I joined it, wasn't Coke industries. We had two business. One was a Rock Island nor company and other was called Coke engineering and rock out and all had a gathering crude Al gathering system. In southern Oklahoma. That is it took oil from the lease and took it a relatively short distance to a major pipeline. And so we'd get a small fee for that. But that was a good business, but it was stagnant. And they limited it to just doing it there. And so we said, I personally had a great partner who I wrote about who was wonderful. He grew up in a tent and was born in a tent and an oil field had all kinds of ailments never finished college and he was terrific. Terrific with people as an entrepreneur. And that's part of our philosophy now. We don't we don't look for credentials. We love for somebody with a gift that can help us create value for others. And paraphrase Maslow, who is contribution motivated. Wants to succeed by contributing rather than manipulating or hurting others or falsely making themselves look good. In any way, so we made that much more entrepreneurial and spread and became the largest crude altogether in North America. And then now we've sold that business and we're out of it. And then the other was Koch engineering, where we made internals for distillation columns. You know, the chemical planner refinery see these columns. What has internals in them that cause the separation by difference in boiling points? And that business was stagnant. Just like the other one was. And it was top down and going nowhere. As a matter of fact, it was break even. It wasn't making any money. So we started applying some of these humanistic concepts and good economic thinking, combining those two and it just took off. And then we applied the what I call virtuous cycles of mutual benefit, which is my way of applying the process of self actualizing to an organization. And so I look at creating virtuous cycles of mutual benefit by an individual is the process of self actualizing. I love it. Charles, that sounds to me like this notion of synergy that Maslow talked about, which he actually got from Ruth Benedict to the anthropologist. I actually saw that in your book. I learned a lot from your book. I like to think I knew all this stuff, but I didn't give you educated me. Well, I lived with this great thing. Kids that now are educating me more than I'm educating ma'am. I mean, well, it doesn't get any better than that. I absolutely adore your daughter Elizabeth Koch. She is amazing. She is awesome, so I just really want to put that on the record. But yeah, you know, I love this idea of synergy and I love that you love it too. But a lot of people aren't talking about it. A lot of people have false notions or false dichotomy between selfish and the unselfish, that let me tell you when I published good profit then since I spent all this time at MIT, the dean of the business school at MIT wanted to come and interview me in front of the students and they could ask questions. So he was interviewing me and then during the Q&A, one of the graduate students is what you talk about all this focus on creating value for others. Isn't that a little naive? He said, I mean, shouldn't you just, you've got to maximize your profit? Oh my gosh. I said, well, maybe it is a little naive, but it's working pretty well for us. And is that more knife or more naive just to think about yourself? Then why is anybody going to want to do business with you? And it's not just if you're just thinking about yourself and not the value you create for all those who important to you and not just your customers, but how about your employees? How about your suppliers? Do you want to just beat them down as a lot of companies do? Rather than reward them for innovating and help you succeed and how about your communities..

"Oh, it's an honor to talk to you. I want to talk to you for such a long time. Well, yeah. I mean, I think I thank Elizabeth for sending me your book in the first place and now I got to thank you for writing it for goodness sake. Oh, wow. You know, I heard that you liked my footnotes. Well, I like to, I liked it all, but those footnotes were so powerful, particularly about Maslow's mother and that that made me think more deeply about my parents and what I learned from them that I wanted to use and what I didn't want to use. So it wasn't this, I hated everything. But I certain things I didn't like. And we can get into that if you want because I think that that kind of forms, I want to get into it. I consider the interview started. Okay. Because, you know, like we're just having fun here, you know, we're just gonna nerd out on all of our mutual interests, but so I definitely want to hear about this. Do you remember, do you remember which footnote in particular or just, you know, he talked about his complicated relationship with his mother, you know? Well, yeah, there were many, many other footnotes in there that I but that was the one that really gripped me because I had no idea that he hated as he put it. He hated everything she stood for. Yeah, so I think that is so cool because, you know, he had a lot of these insights mostly in the last two years of his life, you know? And that's the really interesting thing. That's what he said. He said, you took me 61 years to figure this out. Yeah, and he only lived to 62, you know? So there was the last couple of years of his life. He was having all these transcendent awakenings. We can call them. Didn't he die in 1970? Yes, June 8th, 1970. That's how much of a nerd I am. So he was born in O 8. Correct, O 8, he was born. So he was almost identical. My mother's age. She was born in O 7. You're good at math, Charles. Yeah, no, that was you just did that. You just did that computation on the spot, 1908. I know, I know. And I know that you also, we have so much nerd out on today, because I know you also really like multiple intelligence theory. And you have identified yourself as logical mathematical intelligence. But do you know, did you know that I did my PhD with Robert sternberg? No, I did. I should actually say, have you ever come across Robert sternberg's work? No, no, I have. So sternberg and Gardner were the two big ones who redefined intelligence in the 80s and 90s. So Gardner, you obviously know and frames of mind for our listeners. He had the multiple intelligence theory, but Robert turmeric has a little bit of a different theory. I'd love to just, let's see what you think of his theory. So he has analytical intelligence, creative intelligence, and practical intelligence, and he argues those three are different kinds of intelligence. Let me just ask you, do you see that kind of pull part? Do you think you're better at analytical than practical, for instance, or creative, more than anything else? Do you see them come apart with you at all? Well, I've got a different theory than all of them in that I think everyone's intelligence is unique to them. And that's my personal experience because my father and one of my brothers and I all were really good at math and logic and they were both very good engineers. And although I got 3° in engineering, I sucked as an engineer. I mean, I really sucked. I couldn't, you'd think, okay, I was good at all the theory. You know, 6 years in MIT, but I wasn't good at making our operating anything. So how could I be an engineer? So you weren't a good reply. I was good at math and the science. And I loved thermodynamics and that's a big, maybe you've seen. I use that in everything in our management, everything. That is as many of the top scientists say that is probably the most fundamental law of nature. Is the second law of thermodynamics in entropy is always virtually always increasing. I agree. You know, when I saw that in your book, you said that you liked entropy. I made a note that I wanted to talk to you about that because I noticed that you sold it. This is a really amazing. We already started this interview. We had like four threads that are really interesting. Well, may I finish point on the difference in intelligence? So I knew I wouldn't be good and so I kept trying to experimenting. And that's what it's about, finding your gift is not somebody can tell you, oh, you have this intelligent, go take an aptitude test. I mean, that my help, but you've got to go experiment to what turns you on. And what enables you to contribute, do things that will turn you on, will make you excited, wake up at night, wanting to do more of it, and contribute and that others will value. So you're contributing to the lives of others through that. And when you have that combination, I mean, and that's what happened to me, but not through engineering. I said, when I, when my father persuaded me to come back and run our small business at the time, I mean, I was successful at helping that because it was in bad shape because he had such bad health as you saw. I wrote about, but I was, as Maslow said, I wasn't developing my capacities. I felt with this huge void. And I know I have a capacity to do more, so I've got to find it. So I started studying every discipline and history to find what I call principles of human progress principles of human flourishing. And that's how I found Maslow and Howard Gardner, but I also found polanyi and mises and Hayek,.

Who Is Curtis Sliwa? A Look at the GOP Mayoral Candidate’s Wild Ride in New York
"I grew up in New York City. I was born in Queens. I was in there into the 70s. We got out in the 70s, moved up the Danbury, Connecticut because the crime, the deterioration was unbelievable and we watched the New York news every night. It was unbelievable. We had mayor beam. We had it was just like a nightmare. And into this nightmare, steps a young guy named Curtis Lee tell the story Curtis. It was a night manager at McDonald's in The Bronx. The Bronx was burning down at the time and in the 70s alone a million people fled from New York City. The biggest exit is a population ever. And rightfully so, gangs arson property values plummeting quality of life dismal. So I decided, hey, you know, something they've removed the transit police from the subways at night because we were on the brink of a fiscal collapse. So they were laying off a lot of civil servants. I said, oh, I'll start patrolling with a group of my closes at that McDonald's. We will call the burger boys. And we started to patrol this one particularly train the number four train, which had been nicknamed by the right as the muggers expressed. I thought I get the congressional Medal of Honor. Eric, I couldn't have been more hopelessly wrong. The mayor at that time, Ed Koch vilified us, called us vigilante, said we were the hell's angels. The police unions were upset. They didn't want us there, because they figured their furloughed employees would never be brought back. And so within the first 13 years until Rudy Giuliani got elected mayor. I got arrested 76 times. I got wooden shampoos, concrete facials, attitude, no readjustments. It was whenever you elected or in a changed all that. I always gotta stop you because nobody knows what you just said. And it's the funniest stuff I've ever heard. You said you got wooden shampoos. You're talking about Billy clubs across the head from cops. Yes. Yes. And then concrete facials where the cop would say, Curtis, you see the curb down there as I was handcuffed. I said, yes, Sarge. And then you go, good. We're gonna have your forehead meet the curb bang. And you get a big lump in the front of your
Curtis Silwa: The New York Mayoral Candidate Who's Actually From New York
"You are the ultimate New Yorker, okay? All of us had problems with with Ed Koch. You had real problems with that Koch. But he was in New Yorker. You didn't get the impression that, you know, he kind of took the train down from Cambridge, Massachusetts. He sounded like a New Yorker. You have been in New York, your whole life. Tell us a little bit about your biography for people are just tuning in because I want people to know you who you are. I came out of a blue collar working class background in canarsie Brooklyn. My father, merchant seaman Chester for 55 years and my mother, Francesca raised both myself and my two sisters who are directly involved in my campaign to become mayor. But if we look at it, my father when he would return from being offshore for 8 months of the year, we would go down in the 1960s to an area called the boundary. Right now in Manhattan, you would have to take a reverse mortgage just to get parking space down there. Never mind living space. But back then it was where auditions and the flop houses were. What's called the derelict bombs they referred to them. And my father knew some of these men. Because he had previously been seaman with him. And he said to me, there by the grace of God go you Curtis, at any moment, this could happen to any one of us. I need to have conversation with these men. And I understood that that early age you had to be caring and compassionate. And so that's what I've done for 42 years as leader of the guardian angel. It's not just in New York City, but around the

Biden Gets Support From the Koch Political Network
"Of the cook left. And the Cook, right? I think libertarians But not all libertarians are cooks, of course. But there are kooks. Coke world believes in open borders at the same time, it believes in diminishing our defenses. In other words, it's suicidal in my humble opinion. Suicidal. They weren't always this way. But they're this way now. Coke world comes to Biden's defense on Afghanistan. This is Axios, which is a left wing side. President Biden is getting some unlikely backing for his Afghanistan troop withdraw from a long time nemesis, the Coke political network. They haven't been a longtime nemesis for a long time now. Concerned Voters for America, a foreign policy focus arm of Charles Cox stand together political and policy apparatus is coming to Joe Biden's defense after the U.

A senior adviser to C V, a And foreign policy campaign manager for staying together, he told Axios in an interview. This guy is obviously sold out. Caldwell said. There should be a thorough review of how the withdrawal was undertaken.

Let Us Not Forget All of Andrew Cuomo's Shameful Scandals
"Want to dive into talking about governor. Andrew cuomo's resignation. I mentioned last segment that two days ago i guest hosted for danis and it was my second segment of the show. And i remember sean. The technical director telling it to me in my ear. And i thought oh my gosh so i was. I was lucky enough to break it on air the other day and my immediate reaction was how he able to get away with this stuff. Not just the sexual assault allegations but the nursing home scandal. This we have known about this for a year and finally governor. Cuomo has no choice but to resign and the media has no choice but to report it. Some could say well the media didn't know they know that he was harassing all of these women. I don't quite buy that. I think perhaps the media did not now but it was a willful ignorance. They didn't want to know there've been rumors circulating for years about governor cuomo's conduct with women way before he became governor and there's also a lot of evidence that he's been playing dirty political games for years. I encourage all of you to go online and find out more information about the smear campaign that andrew cuomo was believed to have run on mayor. Edward coche back in the seventies when his father koch. Excuse me koch back in the seventies when his father mario cuomo was running for mayor and koch and cuomo were competing for the democratic slot for mayor and andrew. Cuomo was working at the time on his father's campaign and cauti- was believed to be gay. And it is also believed that andrew cuomo put out a horrible smear campaign in an effort to publicize that fact and discredit him. So i again. I encourage all of you to look up the slogan on the internet. It's it's terrible and and dive into that because it really it really shows the way that andrew cuomo place he plays dirty

Conversion Killers for Photography Sites with Jan Koch
"My name is scott wine wits. And today i'm joined by my guest. Johncock host the wbz agency summit and consults businesses on hosting their own virtual events. His agency power community driven businesses that serve digital agencies to host virtual event so they can grow their loyal audience and establish thought leadership. When he's not working on the business he loves spending time with his wife and daughter were chasing his silver lab through his backyard. So welcome yon finally. We're connecting And i'm glad to have you in. This is going to be a really good a really good educational discussion for a lot of photographers around the world. Thank you so much. I haven't meets code. It's so everybody where you're from because obviously you've got a different accent than i do. So allow share a little bit. A little bit about your backstory absolutely so. I am from germany so english is not my native language bandwidth we if i mess up. Sometimes i do my best. I started using what press in. Twenty twelve's Originally where. I got in touch with his online marketing digital space and in thousand thirteen. I decided to become seven employed. And i haven't looked back since so it's the best thing ever for me. And as you mentioned we have a small family here that is supported by lend business and virtual events and stuff like that recently acquired vitual summit mastery dot com. which is the leading course for running ritual events. It's actually the cause. I took to run. Majority wants to learn how to do the the right process out to make sure that the events are successful and stuff like that. So excited about this. But i'm also very much looking forward to talk about all the good stuff. We have coming up today for sure. So you started using president who doesn't twelve. I just did a quick. Google search that means you started using wordpress inversion around three point four. Yep that's really interesting. I love hearing that. I love hearing because like every stage of wordpress has a different look in a different function that didn't exist in the past and it's always fun to see a just a date myself a bit. When i first started using wordpress was still version one and there is no gallery system so i started using extra gallery. Whatever your it was version one. that's yeah so so what. What is your your favorite thing about. Wordpress that As helped you stick with it and You know that helps keep you. You intrigued and interested in wanting to recommend it to others. Yeah that's a really good question. And they are two aspects. One is how flexible the system. It's like you can do almost everything with repes- if you know your way around. Php and my sequel pretty much. A lot of things with were president than I'm not a developer by trade. I've learned a business consultant. Study for business consultant so What i needed to rely on especially in the beginning is the community and education from the community and by diving into the community mercy myself into that and sharing what. I'm learning learning from others. That is what really made me. Stick with what press because there are so many tutorials out there. There are so many helpful people that you can just approach on twitter or stack overflow or whatever in any facebook group that you might find your own wordpress people want to help you if you post is somewhat relevant enough on your homework before that so That's the best thing ever now with the virtual events that i'm hosting i'm seeing this to speak from all across the globe just willing to volunteer to speak and to help me get the word out of what i'm doing. I think that is the best thing about many other. Cms can out from for sure. Yeah the community is definitely one of the best aspects of wordpress. The is great. But you don't get the same experience community wise that you do with software In the websites based like yes sure. There's facebook for squarespace or or wicks one up but the interactions are not nearly as as depth as you get in the wordpress based plus these dedicated events. Both what used to be in person basically barely virtual these days I can't wait to get back to the in person stuff. how many can you have any work camps. have you been to. i'm just one. I have to admit workum europan twenty eighteen in berlin. Did you speak at it or

Coronavirus cases hit records in Europe, surpassing U.S. numbers
"Americans have looked with envy as Europe's performance against the pandemic. In many European countries, cases were much lower the rate of cases anyway than the United States. Things have not much improved in the U. S. But now Europe overall is worse. Reporting almost twice as many new daily Corona virus cases as the United States and governments are trying to respond. Reporter asked me Nicholson is covering this from Berlin. Hey, there. Good morning. People were so impressed with Europe for a while, which even seemed to be reopening more normally than the United States was able to what changed. Firstly, Steve the weather a zit gets colder, More and more people are meeting indoors Flu season is also upon us on schools and universities are back inside classrooms. Another reason is what the Germans Call the prevention paradox. Countries that previously did well to prevent the virus from spreading are now struggling to do so because people become complacent about it or have a false sense of security. So they're no longer adhering to safety measures. Will Germany where you are is one of the countries that did do well, so how does it look now? Well, as you say, it has fed well and and it has been seen as a bit of a pandemic role model. But just this morning, the CDC equivalent to the Robert Koch Institute reported its highest number of new infections since the start of the pandemic. And in more personal news. I just had My child Steak head teacher has tested positive. So now we're waiting to hear from contact traces about testing, So I have the situation is changing on DH. The Chancellor Angela Merkel is certainly worried. In fact, yesterday she summoned Germany's 16 state governors to Berlin to meet in person for the first time. Since March on it's worth mentioning that medical can't actually make any unilateral decisions about measures because the power lies with the state. Is Merkel getting her country's state governors to agree on what to do? Yes, although I think the better answer there is will see she has managed to get in to agree on a slate of fairly low key measures on she's also warned that more will come if necessary. What is clear is that she and other politicians really want to avoid another lock down. How is another big country? France approaching this where I know cases are already on the also on the rise well that the French approach is much tougher than Germany's, mainly because the infection rate is four times as high but also because President Macron has more powers than Merkel in in what is a much more centralized country, so From Saturday. There's going to be a nighttime curfew in Paris on and eight other cities for at least the next month, meaning that if you refuse to stay home after 9 p.m., you will face fines. But last night's announcement wasn't all about legal measures. Macron also Urged his fellow citizens to be cooperative on DH. His message was conveyed in an interview rather than as a Zanon address, which some believe was an attempt to appeal to people in a less top down way. And what is the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson doing as cases escalate their Well. First of all, the UK system is different again on although it's a very centralized country like France Healthcare is actually managed separately by ministers and England, Scotland, Wales and northern Islands. With the UK registering around 20,000 cases a day These guys are under pressure to act and yesterday, Northern Ireland's first minister, alien Foster, Announced that a nationwide locked down there will come into effect from tomorrow for the next four weeks Force. Johnson is currently under fire for refusing to do any kind of the lock down. Because of what he says it will do to the economy. But the BBC is reporting that Johnson is actually about to impose restrictions on London, which effectively Bam households from mixing. I'm going to pubs and bars. That's me. Thank you very much. Thank you. ST. That's reporter asked me Nicholson in Berlin.

Kurt Andersen on Evil Geniuses
"Kurt Anderson joins us. Now he has a new book out. It's called evil geniuses the unmaking of America a recent history. Kurt thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. All right. So your previous spoke to this was fantasy land and I feel like there's a connection where did you leave off in that book and pick up in your new book? There's definitely a connection and they really amount to kind of a two volume history of the screwing up of America the last half century. Fantasyland was about how this chronic condition in America of the weakness for the irrational and magical thinking in entertaining lies. Turned into this acute illness after having been a centuries long chronic illness, the last fifty years, and thus the President United States as the poster boy for that. This is a different story. This is not a spontaneous organic. Problem that I'm talking about here. About the Paradigm. Shift and hijacking of our political economy that happened starting fifty years ago by who what the people I call. Evil Jesus, it's this very rational, very specific, very strategic, long war that had the effect in a hundred different ways of making the majority of Americans worse off. So if fantasy land talked about America has propensity to believe in nonsensical illogical things. It sounds like evil genius is this kind of why the efforts that were made on the part of institutions and individuals that have led to that kind of thinking. No actually not that led to that kind of thinking that. It's a wholly different thing. What would i. have having a Neo Liberal Clinton Centrist Democrat all of my adult life partners may culpa for simply being. Oblivious to what the economic right was doing. So these. Are People of the economic rights. The coax are the most obvious buzzword way of saying that and how they manipulated and used and changed through all of these different means the way we thought society. The economy should be since the new deal they used the fantasies and delusions and. All that of their political allies on the right to enable their real project, which is to make Americans think the government has no role in anything involving the free market when you are working on fantasy land, did you know that you were going to be writing the second kind of companion book? I really didn't know that it was late in the game working were. I realized wait I am kind of telling half the story here. There is this other story that isn't about look at Wacky America. We've always been wacky for four hundred years and believed all kinds of nonsense but I realized that there was this other story about how the economy changed in how politics changed and what technology is doing. That is the other half and it. Really came when I was out talking about fantasy land with people readers, whatever I remember early on a woman rating stood up and said, well, what about climate change? Yes. It's a matter of nonsensical disregarding science in the facts, but it's it's all about people like the Koch Brothers shifting the way people thought in denying science and I said yeah but it wouldn't have happened. To the extent has the United States without this underlying iffy grip on empirical reality. But I realized that it was both of those things you know people all over the world had if he grips on honeybear curiosity but they don't have this massive politicized denial of climate change. For instance, it's the to in concert in so many ways that has led us where we are.

So much of what I'm talking about the pandemic and the. Horrific. US government trump administration response to the pandemic, which illustrates most of my major themes in this book. So I the whole last chapter is about that and indeed the the black lives matter protest also is in here as well to the degree that relates to what I'm talking about this.

I am very well and I'm glad you could spend a few minutes. Take take me. Back Joe. Borough was drafted April twenty third. How would you describe the demand for the Joe Borough Jersey since that night? Well to be honest with you. It started about a week before that we were taking pre orders for these and really didn't know what we were getting ourselves into. We ordered a couple of hundred thinking. Well we older too. Many of these are people really going to be buying into this. You know and then you know we we we. We were closed down for a couple of weeks. We opened up last Tuesday morning and it was like Christmas morning. We had twenty boxes or burrow jerseys waiting for us and by Wednesday they were just about all gone bad. Oh Man I think everybody's frame of reference is back to Curson Palmer. D Do you have a rely recollection of anything like this when Carson was drafted. It's not even close. You Know Carson with Heisman Trophy winner first round pick but he wasn't Jodhpur phenomenon. Either I don't really understand it fully but the build up around Joe Burrell compared to Carson Palmer. It's night and day thrill. Media is much much bigger so as you mentioned you are. Now you're open right now. Is that correct? We are yes. We opened our doors. Turn the life back on last Tuesday morning. We have all the faith measures in place by the glass masks are required by anybody coming in so we've been Having walking customers as of last week yeah do you. Do you have the borough jerseys in stock or do you have to order them? At this point. We're still okay if you have if you're three. Xl Or if you're a toddler or a youth size we have those in stock still Every other size he ran out of like I said before. Probably in a day or so We went through a couple of hundred so we actually have more on order. They are telling us at Nike that we should expect him. Hopefully by the middle of June. Or give me an idea of what say for an adult size. Something that I would wear. What is the cost of Joe? Borough JERSEY. There eighty nine ninety nine. There's three different Nike Jerseys. If they make this is the cheaper of the three And Really Nice. He's had a manufacturing issue because of covid nineteen. It had to shut down a lot of their capabilities. Where they make these jerseys so really there only able to do the cheaper one four now. They told us during the season. They should have more. Hopefully knock on wood Capabilities to make all the others. I just checked my twitter feed and I have a question from listener. Only one of my listeners can have this question I will toss it to you. You See. Chris wants to know he has a Curson Palmer Jersey. Can he bring it in? Have you strip the Palmer off in so borough in? Yesterday I had a feeling that might come up.

The center dent then Jeremy Hill. That might be more of a cost. Effective way of doing the The burgers even buying a new one. Absolutely talking about Joe Borough Jersey Mania. That is unfolding. Were at the epicenter of all of it with Eric. Cook from Cook Sporting goods on Fourth Street downtown. Let me let me switch over to the reds for a second they had built up so much momentum in the offseason with so many signings did that translate into reds fans wanting reds jerseys. This off season you know I have a feeling it would. That's one of the negative things. And of course we have to keep everything perspective with everything going on in the world but we were really looking forward to a bigger red season than we've had in a Lotta years and because we were shut down for a couple of months we haven't seen it You know which is a shame but again I think whenever they start to play ball again. I think there will be that excitement again so I think everybody in the city is open for that question related to the Regin Shogo Akiyama if someone wants to show Jersey does the back have shogo or does it have well.

S. had with the Taliban right saying we know you want this so let you can either give us something give us something and Pompeii today has been insisting all along that you know. any reduction of forces is going to be based on the reality on the ground you know they're they the Taliban has continued to carry out these attacks against the admitting I added a late now right and and the U.

Let's let's talk about selling dear to my heart, which is reading we have a a joke that before I got married. I would read a book a week before I had children. I would read a book a week. And after I had children, I would read a book a night. But in a lot more pictures, of course, after while reading three books tonight with a lot of pictures. Yes. And we believed it was a wonderful experience. It was it was a rule that was hardly ever broken. We always read a book tour kids before they went to bed, and I suspect even though we loved it there. There were times when for my wife, for example, curious George was not her choice, and she was stuck with it. And I would maybe come in and helper or she just pushed through in read it, even though she didn't love it because I think deep down she thought reading to our kids. Good is it true. Yeah. I think the the evidence would suggest. Yes. I mean, this is a this is a place where it's it's really hard to to learn all that we would like to from from the data because reading to your kids is really heavily associated with other kinds of other kinds of features of parents like education or income, which also have good have have good outcomes or have rather with good outcomes. And so, but you know, I think that there is some there is some evidence around this the value of reading some of which comes from sort of utilizing differences in spacing between kids and looking at the first kids where there's more space before their younger sibling is born. So there's sort of more concentrated parenting time, and one of the things that happens if you have more time with just one kid is you reach in the more. And that does seem to have some have some positive impacts on on on reading readiness and reading. Later. There's also some kind of neat. I wouldn't describe this exactly as. As evidence in favor of reading. But there's some interesting some interesting science FM, or I research where they've put kids in where they put kids in FM or machines, and the image there the image their brain when they when they read to them. And so this what they find in this particular, very small study is that kids who have more reading at home when they are read to in the machine, there's kind of more activision in parts of the brain that's associated with imagery. So it sort of seems like maybe they're having an easier..
