"A couple other games they had that just were not. They had like, they had like super bomberman. And then super bomber man, which is like, yeah, it's good. It's a good game. Sure, yeah. Yeah. Yeah, there's so many angles to tackle this from. I think it's interesting. So I listened to the podcast to hear it directly out of their mouths. And while talking about it, Andy Robinson was talking about how Konami really wants to bring back a lot of their big IPs in big ways, right? And Silent Hill is probably the template to go to in terms of, oh yeah, we have the Silent Hill two remake. We have the and that's being developed by the layers of fear studio. We have Silent Hill F, we have Silent Hill town fall, right? They are bringing back Silent Hill in all these different ways, and it's not just Konami working on a hill. There's a movie. I mean, I feel like there's always a sign that there were before, but I'm pretty sure they announced the making a new movie. Gotcha. And so yeah, I think for them that is their first toe dip into, let's get back into video games. And if that is the template to look at in terms of how the approach melodies are solid and how they approach Castlevania, I think with those IPs, you might, you do want to play more careful than Silent Hill. I think Silent Hill is a good let's just throw shit at a wall and see what sticks. I don't think you want to do that with all your solid because that's a bit more precious. I think people would people would be a bit more judgy with how you handle a Metal Gear Solid, especially because it's going to be without kojima, right? And so I think that part of it is interesting. I think the other part of it being interesting is them coming to E three. We've been talking about this quite a bit, the last couple months, the fact that E three doesn't have PlayStation Nintendo or Xbox. I think just last week we talked about ubisoft announcing that there will be an E three. If there is an E three literally, that's what they say. Yeah, that's literally what they said. Konami, coming back to E three, strikes me as it kind of makes sense. They've been out of the game for they're going to be out of place. I don't think Konami's missed an E three. Really? They were at the last one that we were at. Like with the country when you're talking about? Okay, gotcha, gotcha. But like in a big way though. Well, what does that even mean? But Konami used to have press conferences back in like 2012. I remember mega 64 hosted one of them when they talked about the transference of zone of the Enders going from Playstation Vita. Do you remember this shit? Shit was wild. What a different time. But I mean, they just, they haven't had major presence at E three besides just being there. Having a booth, like having games for journalists to play. And I guess my thing is now that the world is different, since Konami's had a Big E three press conference. I think that's more so where I'm coming from, where they do have the option to do something on their own. They did the thing on their own Silent Hill. They do have the option to go to summer game fest. I think E three makes sense because Konami is still, they've been on sabbatical, right? They've been out there with the pachinko machines doing things in other places, making more money than they probably would through a video game software. But I feel like them coming back into the gaming software side of the industry. They probably still have that old guard kind of like thought process to them where they're like, well, we know E three. We've been to E three. Let's just go back to E three as opposed to doing a Jeff kili summer game fest. I'm a little confused about some of the things. First off, I had a realization that Konami Nintendo directed before Nintendo directed. Because their showcase was like a digital only thing. It was like a pre packaged video that they made. So shots of Konami, ahead of the game. Beyond that though, like them coming back, what you're saying about them returning to games and stuff. I get that us as gamers, we don't think of like, okonomi is putting games out left and right. But in terms of their E three presence, what's this going to look like? Because if these games are real, if Metal Gear Solid three remake is real, if a new Castlevania is coming, where do they announce those? Because remember, the Silent Hill thing, they just did like a Silent Hill, like the presentation, right? They just put that out. This being part of E three, is there a Konami showcase? I struggle to believe that. I don't think so. No, I don't think that there's space for that. And I don't think that they have enough to go into. Maybe, I don't know. Again, being 83 is such a weird thing because really what that means is just there's stuff on the show floor people can play. Otherwise, press conferences are just kind of surrounding it and whether they're part of SG F or E three almost doesn't matter, but there is like a stamp of approval of is it on Jeff's calendar or not, you know? But do you expect to see, if this happens, like real talk, it wouldn't it be out of PlayStation? I think most likely. It depends on how much they have to talk about, I think. I think if it is just a new Castlevania game, and all your solid three remake, then I think you see those at a PlayStation state of play, maybe a week before E three or so. And then you see those games on the E three show floor. Yeah. Yeah. That adds up to me. I like that. Very exciting. What do you want from a new Castlevania? You know, it's interesting because you look at Castlevania, you look at 2D metroid games. And we are now in a world where there's been so many metroidvanias and they have done it so well where we see things like hollow knight obviously is an amazing example Ori and countless others, right? Didn't you even look at things like dead cells that are different, right? That's roguelike. But it has so many Castlevania elements to it. That is almost a natural evolution of what a metroidvania can be. Now, for Castlevania, actually to now collab with dead cells, I think is kind of a very interesting look at a progression, a natural progression for the Castlevania 2D franchise. I don't know what a new 2D Castlevania could look like. I definitely don't know what a new 3D Castlevania could look like unless it's like lords of shadows three or something. I don't know this necessarily going to give it to someone. You know what I mean? That would be incredible.

So it's just like you shouldn't try to you. Try to why because your ego your ego and you didn't want to take any blame for this project going off the rails and when actually it's all of us like all none of us have related really held hands and we're gonna fight really hard to make sure and run with this.

I'm going to kill you. Lay oliver emails like corporate besets. Are people afraid. the they're gonna get. Why do why i wonder. Why do people blame sphere. Its fear it's after they're gonna get sacked or what. They're afraid they're gonna look bad there. They don't wanna look people. Don't like the look bad. And we've really got to get away from that because you can't learn if you don't ever make any mistakes or ever you know there's never do different to be had like you're just stagnant so we need to de stigmatize in the workplace this idea that making mistakes or things going wrong is just so detriment like detrimental to a point where you're going to lose your job. Let that kinda shit go. But for whatever true that you'll lose your job or is it. Just they're afraid nat these days.

You would literally have just not show up at all like if you'll just come to one or two meeting you could drag this shit out without doing any work for a while because it is so hard to find talent right now like it's bad so kind of telling her people looking for all kinds of town. Whatever you doing out there like there's a company in companies like there's so many people quitting their jobs. There's so many people who are like. I'm not about this shit. And the thing is people don't understand the impact of the gig. Konami like new can survive by legit violet. Peyot rant eat food gas in your car and it'd be less stressful than dealing with these motherfuckers. It and so. I will over lifts admiral task rabbit. I will like it so many things that people will pay you to do. They know they have to pay you. Pay you because inflation. Right now like i spent way nor i buy some things at the store that phil normally would probably be like fifty sixty dollars hundred in some ways. Yeah like things like every time. I wash restore these days. Yeah that's what happened. It's crazy out here. But like in addition to that people are making more money and then you got amazons of the world dates. Need warm by like will you. Will you move this widget to here. Will you drive this being. Okay come home but like even you know some people are tired of the construct of what work is how we tailor work in a lot of people are starting to realize like i wanna do something like feeds my soul and i wanna do something. That's going to help people in our wanna do something that means something. I don't want to just be a cog in the wheel and so as people are figuring those things out there quitting and interesting y'all gonna lose felicia at some point. I i need to get out of corporate so bad. But i think for me it really if fills better to do work then like feed you and doesn't drain you and like what i'm on coaching calls or when i'm helping somebody through their career dilemma. That's that's that's this is. This is what i'm supposed to be doing. Because i'm so good at it like Scarily good at it scares me sometimes. So that's why i'm like okay.

"We don't see that with you. Travel all right so there's a lot to unpack here because especially when i first learned about your platform. There were a lot of terms that you had used that. I don't think that as a consumer of travel as someone who's a guest who's booking. These trips are actually thinking about. So what are some of the major problems right. Now that you see in the home. Sharon konami and then we can dive a little bit deeper well. At the high level hosts who actually provide their properties provide roofs over. People's heads tend to not have control over policies that affect them and their livelihoods guests have their fair share of woes because they cannot depend upon a central party in order to determine disputes order to help them do things in a way that makes them feel safe and satisfied for the future. People have an impression that central companies are trusted. Brands tend to do things properly and well but actually it's not true in fact i says you're in an airbnb myself and just a couple of weeks ago i had to separate airbnb fall through on me and it's not like we're trying to pass the competition. I think airbnb is a great company and they pioneered much of the home sharing industry as we know it today but it just a fact is true that when you have a diverse global industry you need to be able to localize services you need to be able to localize responses and be able to treat people based on the regulatory frameworks. They live in and based on the market conditions. They live in differently. And so this democratization of decision making and ownership around sharing. That's simply possible with existing models and we committed to recycle and one of the things. I think that's really interesting. That you mentioned in the intro. The episode i mentioned this is the fees part..

"Do it. I know you are the pitted. Me of what we would call a progressive democrat In that regard and so you're unique in many ways so let's go to some of the policies that And unique because as a political figure you know. Your experiences are unique So help audience understand as the world has is on climate and infrastructure. What exactly is happening at the federal level. And what does it mean for those of us in the states in our local communities on the streets. You know i think i believe congress is gonna pass a pretty substantial infrastructure bill. I think if i had my way it would probably be double the five hundred. Seventy billion dollars that it is because the need is so great. My concern is not that the two houses are eventually going to come together on a hard infrastructure. The roads bridges water systems broadband. All of those things. My concern is where that money goes. Once the congress is headed saying the president has signed off on it and that we have to be very vigilant to make sure that it goes to communities that are in need nominee there are particularly black brown and poor communities that are suffering the greatest from the impacts of climate change and those are the communities that need to get the resources that are there for resiliency. Those are the communities where we really need to make sure that You know the worst Climate offenders Don't get to continue to abuse communities with dump and You know oil wells that are being into the into the shorelines in the water systems. So i'm not. I am confident that ability to pass. And i also think it has to be coupled. It must be coupled with what's described as the budget reconciliation. Which is really just a fancy term for figuring out a spending mechanism that allows the congress to do a whole bunch of other things in those of the things that are described as the carry. Konami taking care of people making sure that we make the investments in in climate change. Not just on the hard infrastructure side but on things like you know Making sure that we have Attention to how we're looking at energy and energy consumption and a wide range of energy sources other than fossil fuel sources. So where that money gets spent to me is the greater part of the deal. That is why the importance of passing legislation. That's kind of one piece of it but we have to be vigilant as citizens in our communities in our states when those monies begin to trickle down that they're actually going.

Didn't turn out that way and just end up to us as a mike enough so many games go into the stretch yet. That's exactly that's exactly the point. I used to be that Saudi was a big welcoming place for indie games for deb's especially during the junely heyday of the playstation three playstation fall. Say at station. You know that's where i being by heyday. When playstation four appeared everyone was like hey plus fall and here you're aside from the likes of say gog dot com where you can buy old games quite cheap..

"Out being Wanting to know sales figures for console releases and stuff like that well. Saudi have been having a very very good year in terms of Sales the sales of the playstation five of its point eight million. This many things from this one is out on the playstation four by a couple of hundred thousand the f. This machine had the same so freedom of production the playstation for that when that was released yet. What would that number actually. The only thing that's kept that number down is the fact that lays machines are so again. I i will be honest. I think because of the success of the playstation for if we hadn't been in the middle of upon namic playstation five would've literally wiped the floor with everyone would have been closer to about twenty million either said yes. It was actually quite free in his production cycle. Yeah i reckon it would have been a runaway success. I think that what's held it back as exactly as you said. They're hard to get hold of and so this is This is You know it's a it's an interesting figure to look an interesting perspective to look at this from the angle that we have right now You know coming out of this pandemic and with a lot of people being stuck at home. The rise of video games in a way that nobody expected in twenty twenty so many people that don't think needing stuff to do at home and buying consoles because they didn't have anything to do at home that's when intendo have really wipe the flow of everybody relate the fact again like animal.

Getting many games struggle rotunda yet. It is still probably the most popular consul still playstation four of the ones which i mean i mean the ones that iraq have now won acting on active.

Colombian President Iván Duque Comments on Unrelenting Unrest
"Had the a negative growth but konami last last year. Six percent minor six percent. We tried to address many of the social needs. But i think at this moment there is a lot of of sentiments that have been compiled over the last year so there are people who are expressing peacefully their needs so we're talking about louis labor opportunities For the youngsters were listening to be the one to have access to more social benefits. And how was mr duquesne responding to the protests. I think the president is trying to balance two worlds. I mean whether he's doing that successfully or not. I guess it's it's the subject of fierce debate but mister duke says he is trying to meet with representatives of the protesters so immediate of the cases. We want to have the best address possible for the people protesting peacefully. Listen and acting for the people that have been organizing the national strike. We said okay. Let's sit down.

"konami" Discussed on Generation Xbox - Your Home for Xbox Series X News and Opinions!
"Thousand two abandoned smaller Niche projects while Xbox is expanding and giving smaller teams a chance to shine with their ID an Xbox program, which they just had like a gave for our seemingly, you know show about Xbox game pass etcetera. So we see it again, right? I didn't know if we're at the crossroads or we're a little past it off where these two are moving in dramatically different directions. Now, let's add to that for a second this rumor that's floating that you know, I personally think it's probably true. I think you guys do as well supposedly talks with the lawyers right now. Yeah and everything finalized but you so yeah. That Xbox is reportedly in talks with hideo Kojima to be exclusive publisher his next game. Like first of all, that would is there a story bigger than that this year if it happens and then you know, like are these two heading in dramatically different directions right now page one, do you prefer? Hey, go ahead. So loaded question. Woo! Okay. Yes. What is the biggest stories that happens? I agree with anything for me cuz obviously convinced cuz you reduce side and he'll for Sony and then because they had PT, right and they scrapped it like that was obviously going to be silent hill and I thought they'd go back and do that after death stranding down Hills tsunami though. Well, I I heard they licensed I heard Konami licensing out all their properties. So again, I wouldn't be surprised. I can't remember where I read that I'll fire sought-after, but I guess they wanted to license out like Simon held Metal Gear stuff like that because they didn't want them. But yeah, that's what I thought was happening. So for him to make like a assuming you might be the next box is definitely going to catch me off-guard and what was your question Tyler? So we approach well know like, you know are they are they going in dramatically different directions here in terms of you know, just a handful of super tentpole Triple A games versus like let's have let's cover a super wide range of stuff. Yeah wide-ranging. Yeah life and Which one do we prefer would rather have some some, you know, some really known quantities that we know we're going to deliver but haven't be further, you know apart or break a bunch of stuff. That's going to have Navy arguably something for everyone..
"konami" Discussed on ACG - The Best Gaming Podcast

I hate some of the stuff that these companies do and I will say it and I'll say it to you if you know you disagree with me. I apologize and somebody bitching. They do you remember like sort of banami had kaname had like the weirdest press conference ever at E3. Yep, when they had like those two guys. Yeah, like on the podium off do what did they do?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge is a new 16-bit beat-'em-up
"Needs to Turtles shredders revenge. Who thought this one coming nobody. I drink turtle's brawler stuff. Still right and that's like the one type. Eternal game that gets made besides japanese. Yeah i action games not good once. Yeah i mean yeah. We hope it's good. It has good pedigree behind it. Trivia games The guy did the one. I enjoyed last year. Very much panzer paladin. What like. I was not that interested in this because only because so many of these throwbacks end up being disappointing. Right like you're so jazz and exciting. It comes out and it's fine. You know and then and then and then it's over but this one every single portion of the announcement. I'm mike okay. Okay developer like good like they're hitting all the right notes. I could not be more jazzed. I think this is going to be the one that like actually delivers on the promise of like what. Sort of a modern throwback can be. Well yeah except that it's it's being Published by dot edu. Who last year brought a street bridge. Four which is also another great modern classic broader exactly johm. It looks so cool. it's reg. I'm not a journalist guy. So i'll i'll connect to this on the brawler level. It streets ridge four had anything that was like kind of like a meta gain. That kind of like did something. Brawlers didn't like an rpg system like mercy ransom or like castle crashers or anything like that. It had an interesting scoring mechanism. Where the longer you went. Without taking damage higher your score would go which is kinda cool and a stressful to me. I liked it. It also had a really really great animation. Of course herbals game is going for classic. Look like it is a sequel to the original turtles. Arcadian nearly nineties Our producer is writing me. That turtles in time is so much fun now. I played all the early turtles brawlers. they're fine. I played them like crazy. When i was a kid. But you guys know how i feel about brawlers need something extra or just too boring other. Otherwise it's good for you know ten dollars worth of quarters in the arcade galway's grant them that but i don't want that in my home and even with four people i'm gonna play through once maybe and it was to see all the cool pixel art and stuff so that'd be nice in this and i'm sure it'll be interesting but back in the day brawlers were cutting edge graphics. There's nothing that looked as good as them. And that was the reason for me to play them like run racers were first coming out not gonna play daytona usa ever again but i was pretty excited about daytona usa. When it was at a bank of machines in the arcade. I'll close up ten dollars in quarters into this machine. But i won't buy it for ten dollars. I wouldn't do that. It's the arcade experience in your with your friends and you're like how long can this quarter get mean this round. How much have improved since my last order experience. Exactly yeah maybe something will modify a cabinet and we can all play together to extreme or something in the future. that'd be cool way to experience. What if the game free but every time you wanted to play again at cost you asked about that. And nobody's really done. The twenty five cent per game system microsoft tried doing that with xbox live arcade border per play. It was something like that. We had to pay each play of these classic arcade games. Oh yeah one of the castle. Vania games like that. One of the xp la's spinoffs. Maybe joe was the castle vania. Excellent spin off that was like that zoom in and zoom out one which is was the cooperative one. That was really cool. I don't remember the pace anyway. You are right sam. I beat dragon and the arcade back in the day. But only because my grandpa just kept giving me quarters eventually my sister and i just four star way to our way to the end of the game where you bany or jimmy. I'm a lifelong me. There are only jimmy on the eighty. S yeah i think it's corrected or it was originally correct in their arcade The i have like a little kid. I had don't really fun. Time at the arcade playing with a friend through the simpsons. Game those my best brawler Experience we had happened to come in to a ten dollars in quarters or something. We got last boston. Did not beat the las boss. Still never finished the simpsons but it was so exhilarating and so illuminating to go through the first couple levels which costs you a buck fifty. Probably in the next couple levels which cost you probably four dollars and then the last boss which cost you four dollars by itself adds up in the set of funny way. It's it's you know it's those. Were designed to your quarters. At a point where people stopping go competitive with quarters and getting high scoring with pacman staff and of course the next era of arcades we all know with street fighter two competitive stuff that wet bridge of high tech brawlers like you know as corner starting with call it by the way. Yeah i actually have. I have a lot of affinity for brawlers. Who doesn't everybody loves him. But like you're you're completely right that. Although i do have an affinity for them like they're kind of garbage in like you know the bosses have invincibility frames and Just lockable moves. And just you know total screen wipes and like clearly like a super high level of skill. That stuff isn't a problem but for like everyday people like they just become impossible to the point. Where like you said. They're designed to you. Know to continue. Yeah so but that's why seeing them come. Home is so exciting. Because then they don't have that limitation that requirement on the commercial side on the on the capitalist side like they can just design a really really cool fudd brawling fighting combat system without the need for a bunch of bullshit bosses that That i can afford another quarter. That's casper crashers. I think they did a good job with it. Yup tina this announcement anything for you In the sense that i played like the early nineties. Konami think version the arcade version back in the day. So i had the same fondness that anybody else would just Having an opportunity to to play multiplayer game when that's a reality in the future at some point when you can sit down on a couch next to a friend and actually play the stuff. I'm also not a huge brawler fan. There's a level of consistency in sameness to them. After a while when you play them back to back. But i loved. River city ransom. Um so. there's definitely some affection in my heart for the genre overall.

"They break him. So if can you imagine if the eagles after a wire receiver with their first pick. Can you imagine if they get a jomar chase Guy they already have jalen rager. They have some other talented young. Why receivers to while rapid. I mean there's guys who have some potential. They're walk ins fulham. They have some guys ward has had his moments like they have some interest in prospects. But when he's about special Has special if they if they draft another quarterback in that first. Pick back to back years number. One draft picks that our quarterbacks or they signed a big free agent man. Are you kidding me if they go quarterback man. I'm not even an eagles fan and i'll slip helena. No no way. No way bringing a vet quarterback let them battle it out quote unquote with jalen hurts but this kid is their future. They traded wins because of him. I don't know you know Carson wentz struggled and they seem to be fans of whom jimmy like the management of the team but they changed course on him and sure they could have given more time right. They could have brought him back again next year said. Hey let's try this again you know we've seen we've seen be quote unquote elite. at times. He's had his moments his his seasons. Why think you rhythm you're telling me they got rid of them because they're just another quarterback make sense doesn't make sense for an organizational standpoint to me so jalen hurts. Is their quarterback going forward. I'm super excited about it if you have someone in your league who's not excited about it. Get jalen hurts on your team. Superplex leagues to quarterback leagues. Get jalen. hurts when you're team. Man at in redraft league's draft. Jalen hurts. we'll see where he goes in drafts. We'll see how it plays out. You know. I i definitely see what you guys. I'm not a quarterback early guy either. So if it's one of those unjustifiable things you in a redraft league. I get it but in dynasty or you know superplex to be to quarterback to be exact definitely went after jalen hurts you kidding me definitely in the least. I don't have minaret. Because i haven't lisa so i'm happy you know i'm feeling good. This is one of those trades where from a fantasy perspective and from a football perspective. I'm actually excited for both. For both guys i think carson wentz will be happy and do better at jalen. Hers is going to his opportunity to well. I don't like what the eagles got for it. I'm happy for the to what they paid. But you know if for me if the eagles quarterback in the first round and double down on this like yeah that's that's really gonna make you look bad for me that's really gonna be you know It's gonna make the detroit look even worse it's gonna make it worse. I mean look it jalen hurts is gonna come into seattle miles sanders boston. Scott run back those talented talented guys with different abilities. He had jalen reagor and hopefully a first round draft wide receiver or a free agent wide receiver. That's you know. that's good. They and then they have some other young guys 'cause watkins and then like i said some talented guys that we know we're going to see what they do. Great tight ends. We don't know what's ahead earth desmond rumors that he might get traded or cod this and that but got it whether it's got an arts or just urge doesn't really matter good talented tight ends fixed. The lineup get healthy on the line. Fix defense with the rest of your draft. It's free agencies. You know players and the eagles man trust me. I believe in jalen hurts. I see some people say carson wentz better than i don't agree with you Obviously went has more seasoning. Right now because he's been league longer and he's about to be on really good offensive line great offense and a coach that knows his abilities So we'll see we'll see how that you know how that ultimately plays out you know but man. They're both on quarterbacks. I haven't fantasy they are. I think is i'm more into jalen hurts obvious. I'm a huge deal hers. I'm all in. I know there's some people who are skeptical. They were all about shawn watson. They did the same thing. Same exact thing they have cheat codes we have to listen to me have chicote and they will use them at a high level and this team will build around him the correct way and give him a full offseason a full training camp. Watch out man he. He's one of the next big quarterbacks in the league ama- there's a lot of fun. Rookies coming into the league as well. Quarterback is getting superman. the league it's getting super interesting. They usually like one guy maybe to do these things all allowing players coming out. They just have this ability man. The athletes that are going to play quarterback their whole life and transition into the nfl. Continue to play quarterback. It's a beautiful thing. So kinami goad. Quarterbacks are beautiful. they're amazing every often should have won. I mean i'll say this as a raider fan i love. Derek carr everyone that go to bat for derek carr every year every season. I don't give derek car. I get frustrated at times. But i don't give up and he started to run the ball a little more and get excited about it. Because i'm like. Hey i've always wanted economico quarterback derek carr is not that we see it. Has a fan gets me excited because oh break that out a little more do that more. Because that's what that's what. That's what changes the game for a quarterback so yeah the eagles just got us you fall in love with this guy man. Don't don't push his guy away. Don't be mad at the trade. I know the return wasn't the greatest but this would be great if especially they draft you know a wide receiver the top drafter in a free agent. Who's really good this offense. I'm excited about this so we talked about carson wentz. Yesterday we talked about jalen hers today. We want i want. I wanted to keep them separate episode wise Because they both deserved know a full episodes among them and their offense is in their team and their side of the trade year. We're going to talk a lot about jalen hurts in carson wentz going forward. This isn't gonna stop here. But i wanted to give them both dedicated episode cover them and there may be more episodes. I discover just them. We'll see how it will see how everything starts plan out Dependent on the guests bring on and the conversations that just you know which way they dictate the flow but Yet i'm all in on. Jalen hurts. Eagles starting quarterback dynasty fantasy. Redraft always the right values. You go for it. Always if you have someone who does not believe in jalen hurts you go get him you go get him window just the window matter. Close now your window just got more expensive. This is why you get them the year before when we talked about a year earlier. That's why you get them. Then you gotta look ahead of these things. You have to understand this. This is a a possible outcome a likely outcome and jump on before the fact ara guys again as always thank you for the love that you follow the support. This show continues to grow daily.

"Today carson. Wentz is no longer the starting quarterback in philadelphia. And you have to ask yourself. The only quarterbacks that are currently in philippi are jalen hurts and they said phil clearly needs. That does not start. So jalen hurts. Is the quarterback in philly. Now i've seen some mock drafts have in the eagles draft quarterback in the first round. That's crazy that's ridiculous. I don't care if they want quarterback competition or not for jailers. That ain't the way to go now. Yesterday we talked about the colts and carson wentz and how i love you know this for carson wentz. I do believe that this helps him Regain confidence get back on track to be a top. Fifteen quarterback is good for the colts and the colts got him for a good price. So happy with what. The eagles got return after they should have got more So i understand it beagle upset about that if the eagles draft a quarterback with the first pick in the draft you might as well quit as eagles. Fan i could. That's like raiders drafted jamarcus russell type stuff. That's like the raiders drafted a bunch of the players. They drafted ten years ago. I know what that feels like. Trust me so if the eagles go quarterback. And i'm not saying that the court is bad because they're not saying the court is coming out at jamarcus russell. I'm saying that you already have jalen hurts. And jalen hurts. Is this team's future quarterback. He's their teams current quarterback. So you know. I had him on my list last year for this type of reason right. i don't. i made that list. I don't know how to go back and check with data was if he was drafted you. I don't believe it was If he was as possible that he was actually might have been. I don't even know what when i said that but i'll check it. I think it was back in. I forget i'll tell you but regardless This was the reason. This is why i had him as a player that you draft or somebody else drafted trying to buy him while he's not a starter in the league because he was going to be a starter in this league and it was only a matter of time before jalen. I was started in this league. You just you can't know talented individuals like that. So don't don't tell me you think that the eagles traded carson wentz because they felt so confident with quarterback coming out and they going to get one. They felt so confident because they have jalen hurts. I mean i know. Teams like the draft quarterbacks. I know it's like a you know It makes sense for teams to continually draft quarterback year after year. even if you're just going to trade them because the value is great right value is great. If you have a really good quarterback but jalen hers is special men. He special you know he had. He embodies a lot of the stuff that i talk about every every week on this podcast during the season. He has what i talk about. When i'm looking for players that i want to invest in listen we. We're we're talking about economic code quarterback a quarterback who can make plays with his legs. It's a cheat code. Every team in the league honestly needs one of these. Every team in league should have one of these. And if you don't have a quarterback who can run the ball and make plays like that you're at a disadvantage. You really are just as simple facts. The best quarterbacks in the league can make plays happen with their legs. It doesn't mean. They depend on their legs. It doesn't mean that it's you know it's their you know their best attribute. It just means that they have to have it. It has to be an option and just in the few games that we've seen jalen hers play last year. He has that. Ability was jalen hurts. Perfect last year absolutely not at times jalen hurts. Play like a rookie. Absolutely no question about it. But are you gonna deny the fact that he had against arizona last year over three hundred passing yards three touchdowns Sixty seven rushing yards rushing touchdown. Really that we're not getting nor that right. are we getting. Nor the fact that his last week fifteen when he played he had two rushing touchdowns. Are we going to ignore it like you didn't happen. We're getting nor the fact that actually two of the games at a five believe he played he. I think he played in five games on if you had a lot of snaps on all of them but at least in three of them he had a lot of snaps In two of those he had over three hundred yards one of them. He threw two interceptions. That was a problem that was you know it looked rookie. Ish you know some mistakes out there but again brush over almost seventy yards in that game pass for over three hundred do a touchdown got sacked a bunch. Some of those. You know you're going to blame on a quarterback who runs the ball. You're gonna blame wanna a rookie. You're also gonna blame it on a bad eagles offense blind at times. Don't forget they're adjusting to that rookie. Who plays that way know. So yeah. i'm excited about jalen hurts can do on questionably excited if you go back if you watch the games and you see the listen another thing you know. I mentioned this to shawn watson came out when everyone was you know not everyone is. He's saying everyone seems like i'm putting everyone in a box but there was people who were saying to shawn watson is bad football they were analysts and experts at did not believe in deshaun watson is a four player. There's nothing wrong with that right. I mean i. We all can bash players. It is what it is. I think it was ridiculous and crazy. And i think it was a you know. It didn't make any sense to act that way throughout the gate and his first year just completely shitting on him completely. Saying this guy doesn't doesn't belong here. It was on call for it. Makes sense was ridiculous But you know some people die down the hill that they're on so that's kind of what that was either way Something that shawn watson head in that you know in fantasy and dynasty. Sometimes people don't like to talk about it because again you can't place a metric on it and you can't you know the data people and People who are into metrics. Can't you know kevin a number on it and say look. This is what happened but jalen hurts is a leader in the hearses. A winner jalen hurts when you're a leader and a winner you make everyone around you better. What happens is what alpha males do. I'm not going to ignore that. I know a lot of people like to ignore loud. Who laugh at it but it when you get a round winters and you get around. People who are who are refusing to be denied who put in the work have special ability you know. It's true that those people exist and you know that those people make you better as a fact. It's just a fact again. I can't put a number on it. I can't put a metric on it but he's a winner and he's a leader and so that matters just like get matter for the shawn watson just like it matters for a lot of guys and so he has his leadership quality. He has this. You know this this mentality that that matters at quarterback in matters in the league he has the code would his legs. Would you put you put on display. Often what he. He rushed for over one hundred yards one game as the quarterback again. His games weren't perfect. That ability cannot be questioned. you can't downplay that ability because guys like that stress defense out. They exhaust defenses..

Zconomy: How Gen Z Will Change the Future of Business with Jason Dorsey
"Jason. Save up to fire nation and share. Something interesting about yourself that most people don't know sure what's up. Fire nation thrilled to be here with you. Huge fan fire nation. Everything about something that most people don't know about me is. I wrote my first book when i was eighteen years old and it was so successful. I ended up sleeping on the floor of a garage apartment with five thousand books that i had printed thinking somebody was going to buy them instead. They were furniture. So a bed of books means you're not selling as many books as you want to fire nation but guess what jason's grown he's matured and right. Now he's rocking z. Konami which is all about generation z. And how gen z is going to change the future of business. So i kind of want to start a few steps back jason. Because i'm just curious like how does one get into studying generations wide. Did that interest you. And why did you get into it. Yeah share well that. I book that i wrote when i was eighteen at ended up not selling it first and then becoming a real big bestseller and i started speaking all around the world and i ended up on sixty minutes and i was on. That show is all about millennials. And i'd written a bunch of books and started a company and everything was going great but after that show i started speaking all these corporate executives who are now our primary clients but i was speaking all these exact and he would say such terrible things about millennials and i am a millennial pretty fended lazier titled your pants or fall off. You live with your mom and all this stuff. And i'm like well. No actually. I have my own house in our own office building in my parents worked for me and my pants are on very snugly. Thank you very much. And so so after that i remembered Clear as day. I was in this boardroom. Big public company and the ceo had said Some things about millennial employees. That i just i didn't fully believe and i'd spoken about half a million millennials at that time and so i asked him because i didn't know any better. Now i serve on lots of corporate boards. You know one of the couples on sold for eleven billion dollars. I live in this world now. But back then i didn't i didn't i didn't know and it was really a set up for success so i asked him i said is there any way i can see your data about millennials because you say the turnovers hiring. They're not as engaged and on and on i. I love to understand better. So i can conceptualize it and maybe help also for so. There are a lecture or whatever so they sent the data to me. And the data didn't match with the ceo had just said in the boardroom which basically never happened. Ceo's don't go off the cuff in front of their boards prickly a private publicly-held company like that. So i asked my wife who has a phd. I said denise you know this is. The strangest thing was just in this room with this pretty famous. Ceo they said all these things with great conviction then. I looked at the data and the data doesn't match what they just said. I said what do you think we should do. And she looked at me and she says we start a research for. She's up because if they don't even know their own data if we can help them to understand their data make better decisions and we can really great copy and help lots of peoplesoft. Lots of challenges and so. That's how we got into this thirteen years ago. We founded the center for generational kinetics. We lead research all around the world for many of the biggest brands in the world. And all about separating generational myth from truth through data so leaders can make great decisions whether you're a startup or venture capital or your bootstrapping yet or you're in a big public company getting accurate data and being able to make decisions based on that increases the likelihood of success de risk strategies. That you're looking at drives innovation and so forth and we found that generations in particular or one area where there was just so much myth and so much misinformation and if we gave people great information that it could take action and that was incredibly exciting. We've had seven hundred clients since then which is pretty wild and done studies all around the world and just love it absolutely it now. Your ceo is just flat out wrong when it came to millennials and you had the data to back it up. Did you ever go back to him. And just be like joe burrow. Check us out. you're wrong in also my pants. They're pretty snug. Check them out. I know that was a quiet. But i really do credit him and i if it wasn't such a negative story i would say what company is because it's really big famous company but But no but. I do believe that he something that we saw frequently. Which is the idea that generations older generations. Think of millennials through the lens of their kids or their grandkids and so that that becomes a proxy for the whole generation. And in fact when we wrote the economy book new book. What we found is the same thing was happening again and there was all this misinformation and it just wasn't true and that's why we spent less two years right in the book is because we've got to clear this up because when people have the wrong impression about an entire generation it leads to so many problems for everybody. Everybody loses so no. I never never corrected him on it. But i do give him credit for sparking the idea. I'm glad that you do give them credit for sparking that idea because sometimes fire nation. Is those things you just like you know. I'm not just quite sure about that. Let me look into it. They can really uncover some great opportunities in one thing. That i think is a huge problem in this world in general and especially when you're talking about generations is just regurgitation. You'll hear one person on one talk. Show say one thing. And then you'll regurgitate it. And then somebody else regurgitates regurgitation and like seven layers down. You're like how'd you hear that. They're like oh. I don't really know like somebody just mentioned it and like now you're speaking it like it's the truth and it's just regurgitation of what you know is something that has no data to back it up. So what most people get wrong jason when it comes to generations break that down for us shared. There's a few things that jump out. The first is this belief. Generations are a box or stereotype and that is absolutely not true. We're generational researchers. This is what we do more than sixty five generational studies and what we see is generations are not a box but what they really are powerful clues and as long as we used them as clues and only clues to dry faster connection trust and influence in create all kinds of positive outcomes. We don't wanna put people in boxes. We wanna use this as clues. So we can figure out how to better lead market sell collaborate innovate and so forth. And when you sort of at that level people seem to really embrace it because it just gives them another lens to better connect. So i think the first is people think. Generations are boxes or stereotypes. And they're not in fact. Our clues are driven by math. We look for what's called predictability by scenario so that's the first thing that people i think it wrong. The second is this idea that generations are the same around the world. Now one of the things that we've uncovered repeatedly in our work. We publish all this on our website. Is that generations vary by geography so for example in the us will see differences between urban and rural within the same generation. And that i work a lot outside the us and we'll see differences. Has we travel around the world and that's important because if you're a global company or frankly a global brand fire nation is you want to make sure that you really representing each of the different geographies. And what makes them different now. One cool thing that we've uncovered and we talk a lot about this bunches. Economy is the most consistent generation the world. now that doesn't mean exactly the same but the most similar generation the world is now gen z. Gnc's about twenty three twenty four years old. The oldest and the reason the most similar is because of cheap mobile technology so if you live in different countries around the world you might even get your phone for free as long as you use it for payment. Think about it started using a text. Payer sort of like a mobile credit card in different parts of the world and because we've driven the cost of a mobile down solo basically two zero in many places now. All the sudden young people around the world are having access to entertainment news information dating banking on and on and on and as a result of that. We're seeing a lot more similarities. As i travel all around the world the younger you get but interestingly the older you get even to gen xer baby boomers from a different planet as you travel around the world. So that's something people get wrong. And then the last thing that i think people get wrong. And is they have to deal with a bunch. Is people confuse life. Stage or age with generation. So for example jen's is now twenty four but when we do studies and ask people how do you think the average millennial is they'll say twenty five as if we didn't keep getting older you never talking about millennials for fifteen years. Say there they're now forty. I think that's a board it because you stay in the saying generation but you pass through different life stages and frequently people confuse the two and it's very important to understand the difference because if you're trying to market or employer build a business that targets different groups generations gives you all these clues but we got to distinguish between the generation which travels up right at ages up baby boomers for teenagers versus life. Stage for example high school or college which are still pretty similar ages as they have been for the last four years and so knowing. The difference helps you to understand that. Yes really interesting. How people always confuse age with generations. And how that all goes. I mean you know. I was just talking to a friend the other day literally. He's in his late thirties. I'm in my late thirties. And he's just going off and riffing about jenner. How millennials or just entitled and all this stuff and it looks like you know where millennials. He's like oh no. I'm definitely not a millennial mike. Well we're we're like the oldest millennials millennials. And he's like well. I need to look at that. And so it was funny. He came back. We know there's actually a lot of great things about millennials and he's now like listing off all the good things because he now is identifying himself as a millennial so it's really interesting fire nation and yes. We do get older. That is what happens to all generations and all human beings foreshore. And we're gonna die something. I'm pretty excited about as soon as we get back from our break which is about how generational work is actually going to solve challenges for both entrepreneurs that's you fire nation and companies as well as soon as we get back think is the best platform to create market and sell your own online courses in.

We are back. And as i kind of teased before the break. I wanna get into. How generational work console challenges for fire nation. That's for us entrepreneurs but companies as well. Sure that with us. Sure one of the things. That also is not obvious as i'm venture partner at a venture capital firm and serve on lots of start up boards. It's an extremely passionate about and what we're seeing much of the opportunity being created today has a generational trend or thesis. It's the adoption of new technology new solutions or bringing a different way to look at old problems and when that happens that's where both change and frustration and challenge and frankly companies go out of business but it's also wear new opportunities are created so i'm speaking with entrepreneurs and working with entrepreneurs were trying to look at what are millennials and particularly gen z. Doing right now that you might want to be able to build a business around or leverage as their pine power influence increases so for the first time what we're seeing is technology trends are rippling from the youngest to the oldest and that's a huge shift. It used to be from the oldest more affluent down to the youngest. But now we're seeing younger. People are actually driving tech adoption up to the older but the key as an entrepreneur mississippi that we coach entrepreneurs about is being able to sort of step out of your generation and look at it through the lens of another generation. it's what we call generational contexts. One of the best ways to do that is actually bring members of that generation into the conversation. I can't tell you how many times i'm speaking at places. And they're asking me all these questions about millennials or gen z and. I'm like well. Why don't we invite some of them to the conversation. Let's talk to them. Uh let's actually talk with them. See what they say. Say get and so. I think when you look at bringing generational diversity into the workplace into innovation. You can solve all kinds of interesting challenges. I'll give example right now. What we're seeing is the gen z and even younger millennials. I talk about both of these in this economy book. They want a different on boarding experience. Obviously we're in this time of covert and all these changes but even before that what we saw is that the youngest generation wants to be on once on boarding to be by text message. Which sounds i know a little bit wild but there are companies. Do all of their on boarding through text message so you get semes- before you Short for your first day in alaska you just give you a simple example. This is in the book from coming called on border. When you they'll send a text message and it'll say what's your favorite snack three o'clock when your energy starts to go down. Do you have a favorite sports team are causing all this sort of stuff and the is when you show up for your first day. Or they'll even now senator gift baskets to your house. They'll have all your favorite snacks ready for you on your show up because they already know because you put in your text message or the. Have your favorite sports team. Or they'll find the best place that you wanna go eat or have that food delivered so they're engaging you by text message in a process that generally used to be in person and frankly pretty terrible at most companies. There's another company that worked in with again. This is generational trend. They figured out how to pay all employees fifty percent of their wages every day at no cost. They're called instant and what they did. Is they basically said you get a text message or message on your phone after your shift. And it says hey. Would you like half your money today. Yes or no. If you click s you get your money. Will all the sudden now you have. An entire generation is growing so fast that thinks they should always be able to get half their paycheck. Every day will imagine how that changes so many other things and all the sudden other generations. What do they say well. This text messaging on boarding thing is pretty cool. You mean i can get paid every day. That's pretty awesome. I think i want that. To and all the sudden the generational trends creates huge businesses. And those are the types of things were seeing you know so much. Innovation is driven by other generations. This is the key they don't even think it's new or different when we interview them. They think you've always been able to do on boarding by text message because they never got on onboard before there was text messaging or if they've only worked at a place that gave them the ability to get paid every day. That's how they think everybody gets paid. And you know older generations. So i work with the frequently. Get defensive and they're like you know. The young generations are trying to change everything. And i'm like no. They're not this is just all they've ever known they don't know any differently. Change to them is actually doing what you're proposing and it's not about one being right or wrong. It's going we can. We can leverage us. We can adopt this and all the sudden on boardings better retention is higher engagement is higher in these types of things and you see it on the marketing side for those fire nation members who are really growing their businesses and they're more than sales marketing. Same exact deal and the idea is just recognizing this you're creating so much opportunity. We see this particularly with social media. We see this with podcast such as yours that this is a great way to engage younger generations who then index for talking about these things and driving awareness in referrals and excitement fire nation. So many things to take away here. One of my favorite things jayson broke down was specifically tech trends are rippling from the youngest. To the oldest. Like think about that shift. Think about that change. How the ripples actually going from the youngest to the oldest now which is a complete flip from how it used to be back in the day and one thing. I wanna really dial in on just because i'm personally curious and i think fire nation is to is this the up and coming generation now. Let's talk about generation z. Like who is generation z. And what do we need to know about them. Yeah absolutely so gen z. The key thing is that they're already twenty three or twenty four years old. So that's a good starting point and what we uncovered in our research and we publish. This is economy. Book is at gen. Z is the key thing we got all these research firms around the world to change their birth years. Gen z does not remember nine eleven and that is a huge deal because it's the biggest event for the millennial generation we call generation defining moment. But jesse doesn't remember it at all. They learned about it in school or heard about it from a parent or they watched the video on youtube. But it's not something they experienced and they're now twenty three twenty four years old so a huge event of the generation before they don't remember in fact they're they're covid nineteen is essentially their defining moment. This pandemic is the generation defining moment that they're gonna take with them and we talk about this a lot. So one thing is they. Don't remember kievan of a previous generation and the other is there. Cuban is happening right now. But what i think you're entrepreneurs will find super interesting is that we've been doing this. Study for the last five years called state of gen z and. It's our big study released every year. And what we've uncovered and we've seen it for five years in a row now is gen. Z is more practical or frugal with their money than previous generations. And this is shocking and when we dig into it what we find out is that gen z came of age around the great recession. And what do i mean by that. Their speakers are experts. Like you talked about earlier. This regurgitation people running around saying oh gen z struggled during the great recession in the workforce they were twelve and were not working right but instead what they did is. They saw their parents struggle. They heard their parents struggle. They know people lost their houses. They saw millennials drowning in student loan. Debt having back home a mom and dad and you put all that together and what you see is. They're very conservative or practical with their money. As a result they're driving double digit growth at stores. They like couponing they wanna know. They got a good deal. They want things to be a bargain. They want them to last a long time really have utility and what we see. The example. i'd like to give is a gen zero sixteen years old. We'll have a birthday party. They'll get fifty dollars. They're all excited it away. And then they'll go to their mom or their dad and say hey. Can i have fifty dollars. Wanna go buy something. Mom or dad will say but you just got fifty dollars. And they'll say oh. No that's my money your money. It's overseeing that so if you're trying to market to them you've got to understand their practicality with money we also see the gen z when we do values based research. What we find is for the last four years Their top concern was climate change. Or would they would call climate crisis in their own words. And so that's been the top that they've been looking for brand alignment and for entrepreneurs to get behind and so forth however in the last six months we are new study. Social justice has leapfrog. Climate changes their top issue. And it's significantly more now so all the sudden as you see the generation respond to events around them. You can sort of see how they're shaped so if you wanna make sure in line with their values you gotta know what their values are going. Even deeper on the employment side is people look to hire them. Gen z no is looking for stability. This one's this one's tougher for entrepreneurs. So i want to explain it. They're looking for stability in an employer. What do i mean by that. Gen z saw these layoffs. I heard the layoff. Seen millennials struggle and as a result they're looking for an employer that they view as stable. So it's interesting because they tend to automatically defined stability by being a big company. So they'll say. I want to work for a big company will say why and they well because they're stable and the truth is you and i both know that. Just because you're big company does not at all mean that you're stable and just because you're a small business doesn't mean that you're not stable so it's important that you message to them. We also found in our research is gen. Z is very much interested in benefits which is shocking given their age in fact two years ago. Twelve percent of gen z was already saving for retirement. Wow and yeah. That's crazy right and many of them already have an emergency savings account. These are eighteen year olds. That are taking up their phones showing us emergency savings accounts and it. Just it's such a different generation. I think the key here. Mrs so important for all the marketers who are listening our nation is at gen. Z is not millennials. Two point oh they are not millennials. Just more extreme. That's total bunk. People say that it is not true. Jesse is a completely different generation raised by different set of parents who has come of age only knowing social media it has always existed for them. That's why they trusted so much at the same time. They're more diverse than any previous generation. Different set of values different purchasing pathways. And now the key is they over index on influence because of how they use digital media and already twenty four years old fastest growing generation in the workforce today on a percentage basis. And they're gonna be the most important consumers to get right over the next ten to fifteen years. One thing that i assume and please correct me if i'm wrong. Because it's just an assumption but generation x. And millennials like this is like. I'm speaking of my generation's here that i cut kind of overlap. Both pretty closely. It's we came to like being seventeen eighteen years old and it came to money in debt. Just kind of close our eyes and kind of believed the rhetoric of. Hey you just have to go to college and it's going to be expensive and you're going to get college dad and that's okay and you're just going to be a paid off at some point in the future and now like millennials and gen xers just hammered with this dead. They can't payoff ten twenty even sometimes thirty years later because it was just brutal with the mountains of debt that people kind of blindly get into it. Seems from what you're saying. Generations not gonna kind of take that same approach in just blindly. Sign away their lives to this debt of secondary education in colleges and universities in the such. Is that true. Wow that is such an insightful. I mean you you are super pro do so yes. That is actually true What's interesting is when we studied student. Loan debt with millennials in particular. That's what we call an economic anchor. So what it's causing. It's actually causing millennials. Now this is wild to delay marriage kids and buying a home because of student loan debt and that has massive ramifications on all parts of the economy to everything from financial services whether or not. You're buying life insurance. You know the the homebuilding recovery like on and on we could keep going to income households. There's just there's so many things that are impact even ultimately the ability to take care of your parents later on so what we saw. Was that large student loans at delayed major life commitments which we which is what's happened as a result And by the way gen z will tell you they're not sure that if spending a whole bunch of money and college actually pays off his it remains to be seen right now for millennials. We were told. I'm a millennial. We were told getting the best college at an. Just get debt. And will all be worth it and then for a lot of it wasn't on the flipside. Gen z in our new. Study in this in this economy book because it's important to understand how thing about education gen z is trying to graduate from college with as little as possible ice which is super cold. They're also saying that they're looking. They're very interested in the employability of their career. So so if they go and they pursue a certain path. Am i going to be able to get a job in that path. Now by the way kobe. Nineteen has been a massive massive. You know challenge for that because there are people that were three or four years into college university you know. Maybe they're going to study retail merchandising. Well aren't hiring never hired for that role again or they studied. You know oil and gas and those aren't hiring whatever it is so all the sudden people who already had you know pretty heavy commitment are now realizing that that path isn't there for them but we are single. Gen z particularly during this experience. Right now is they're saying. Hey i want to make sure. I'm getting value for my education and raven seeing well if it's going to be online only i'd rather go to a community college or state school or somewhere else. Get some credits. And then i'll figure out. If i want to go back into the future maybe take a year off and then come back and so forth so there definitely much more conservative with debt when it comes to college university and by the way the other people who are more conservative are their parents boomers had to cosign on all those millennial loans just. That's my mom about it right. And that as a result for many millennials it was tough for them to pay it off on the flipside. Gen-x is going well. I don't know if it's worth it gen x. Gen z kids. You will not end up. Like those millennials so the that's also being weighed into the conversation now is college university worth it and then you add the layer of kobe. Nineteen is it worth it if it's nontraditional experience and you know i don't know the answer to that but it is something we're observing and now this is where it gets really interesting. So the oldest members of gen z. Those that are about eighteen to twenty four. They're bearing the brunt of this. Pandemic what i mean by that is in our latest study. That group was most likely more than any other generation to lose their job. Have a decrease in pay or have a shift in responsibilities meaning. They had to assume a job that they didn't sign up for where it gets interesting though is younger so my daughter is nine years old. Her name is russia Sushi is in fourth grade right now. She heard this is in the book in third grade. Her last end of the year project. Which i didn't know anything about Was she went and built a presentation. She built all and google sides. She built it all in spanish. She had animation. She presented it. She recorded it and then she uploaded to classroom and she thought that was completely normal. She's nine and then of course. You saw one of my powerpoint slides. He's not very good. So i say that because the younger members of gen z. This is the real twist here. They might end up turning this pandemic into a positive. Because they're going to learn a whole different way to learn to collaborate they're going to get the benefit of the older part of the generation struggling. So they can learn from them. All of this stuff largely will be resolved in terms. Of least what normal looks like in the future and so they're gonna get the benefit of all of that the closer you are to those transition years of eighteen to twenty four the worse is but the further away the more benefit could end up being you so it's pretty interesting that within the same generation you can have two very different experiences and by the way this is what happened. To millennials millennials like me who crashed into the great recession and then the millennials who came afterwards who benefited from a very robust economy. So even within the same generation you can see pretty significant differences. I mean fire nation. I really hope you're enjoying this contest. Much as i am. Because i'm seeing the application to the real world and that's so important because we're entrepreneurs in the real world. We own businesses and companies in the real world in this stuff makes a massive impact so jason of everything that you shared today. What's the one key takeaway that you really wanna make. Sure fire nation gets from all of this awesome stuff above generational impact and the generational studies. That you've done and then share how we can even learn more about it through you and any call to action. You might have for fire. Nation is time to share. Yeah absolutely so the number. One thing that i would share. You know as an entrepreneur myself now for twenty four years is i would do. It's called a generational snapshot and what that means is you create essentially a pie chart representing the different generations. Either of your customers or of your employees or team members or ideally of both. Because what you'll often find is that there's more generations and you suspect it and it will help you to shape your messaging your leadership in your marketing to better fit them and going a bit further if you don't see enough of the next generation coming in particular on the customer side that's definitely a yellow flag that you need to pay attention and make sure that your dappling for the next generation because they will be the ones that drive growth. So that's the best easiest how to that will cost you zero dollars that a promise will make you money. Which are the type of things i'm all about. And if you want a whole bunch more in terms of how to actually recruit and retain motivate and so forth across generations or market and sell. You can definitely check out the new book. It's called economy. How gen z will change the future business and what to do about it. We do talk about all four generations and just packed with how to in case studies and all kinds of cool stuff and we'll put together a special promo for fire nation. New it be on my website. Which is jason dorsey. Dot com slash. Fire you'll be able to get all of that. They're including three free video courses. Because i am a passionate entrepreneur. Have been for a long time. And anything i can do to help them. Nation will fire nation. You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with and you've been hanging out with j. d. n. j. l. d. So keep up the heat and head over to your fire dot com type jason in the search bar. The page will pop up with everything that we've been talking about today. But of course jason. Dorsey dot com slash. Fire is gonna get you to that gray page with all that awesome content. And i just wanna jason. Thank you for sharing your truth. Knowledge value with fire nation. Today

A Conversation With Erin Vilardi, Founder And CEO Of Vote Run Lead
"Into the podcast thanks for having me. So I saw talk where you showing the ranking of presentation by women at the highest levels rate, and there was a ranking of countries by countries and the US came in rather slow. And I just have one quick clarifying question for that was that at the government level or all executive leadership that I think is the inter-parliamentary Union I you which keeps the records around parliaments. So that's the most. Equitable body across various governments and so that's actually what they're comparing. So our Congress to say like the British Parliament, the UK parliament I don't know what year you talk but where are we now in comparison to that year and how we rank with other countries? So. It changes frequently. As elections happened across the globe, but I can actually pull that up and tell you that it's not good. We are tied at seventy six according to the inter-parliamentary union with Afghanistan, and that is from March twenty nineteen. So it looks like and now we are eighty three. So actually we've gone down we have our ranking has lowered in the last couple of years, which often means because even though we had quite a wave of women, right the two thousand eighteen election is often called the wave of women. Especially when it comes to Congress, we didn't see that large of a dramatic increase in moved to about twenty eight percent and you know that was fantastic because it actually ushered in A. Wave of women of color it ushered in a wave of young women, but it wasn't that kind of exponential growth or getting us anywhere near you know parody or reflective, which would be the majority we should be closer to fifty one, hundred, fifty, two percent to be fully reflective of women's representation in this country. So and you see other countries making different kinds of progress ahead of us as we remain pretty stuck pro because I think one of the points he made in that talk that we were at twenty percent and we've been at twenty percent in in terms of representation for twenty years. Try. So that is statistically around the state legislatures and same thing twenty eighteen we saw state legislative wave happen very much mirrored what we saw at the congressional level. So predominantly, democratic women rising through the ranks for the state legislatures I think there we are also. So the Congress has something like twenty four percent and I think actually the state houses around twenty eight percent. And, a fantastic resource is actually something called the Center for American, women and politics tracks all of these numbers really closely as either people retire or things change. They're doing a really great job of keeping those numbers up to date but again, it's pretty stagnant, right? It's not enough to make significant change you end up having to have women who are taking really really deep risks. An order for policy change to occur rather than the change where you see a more equitable government or more equitable legislature and allowed you mentioned the center of American women and politics because I interviewed them at least once or twice and I remember Kelly Dittmar from there, you know saying something that really stuck with me was before the two thousand, eighteen midterms before the election happened and their historic number of women running for office and everyone was really excited about the fact we had so many women running for office right and then you pointed out the fact that like all of these women. Won't win right so we have you know this is a multilayered issue we have you know getting them to run for office, we having them winning their elections, and then you know there's something that you mentioned in your talk that really stuck with me. You said something about term limits right? We forget that the fact that these women once they actually when they actually have to stay in office and then you know sometimes they aren't reelected. So we have all these these multilayered issues that keep women out of office in keep these percentages low well, and you also have pretty weak party infrastructure. There's. A great article outright now, I will find it and share it with your audience about you know really questioning. Is there a real? Paul, within the Republican Party to actually elect women now I think some Republican. Women will tell you. Yes including some younger republican congressman who are doing things outside of the party leadership but there isn't the same kind of concerted effort that you see on the left. But let's also remember that the Democrats effort towards recruiting women is pretty new and they still do things that actually for example, they after the win of Alexandra Customer Cortez. Long term incumbent, the D. triple, which is the Democratic congressional campaign arm said any vendors, any people who do business any consultants such sort of Konami around political campaigns you can't do business with these insurgent candidates like an see in the future also be blacklisted from doing business with the triple endorse candidates, and that was basically a slap in the face to nontraditional candidates, which primarily are winning overwhelmingly women of Color. So there's While we do have one party sort of doing better than the other around recruiting and activating uplifting as part of the leadership pipeline. It's really a reckoning we have to have with ourselves as a country with all of our political parties to do
Freedom from the Prison of Limiting Beliefs
"Nama stay and welcome my friends. Joseph Campbell, who most of you have heard of described all religions as starting with one word that all came out of one word and the word was help. And we humans perceive our mortality. We perceive how everything's changing and in the deepest ways it's really out of our hands. So we're looking for something that can protect us that can guide US and help us make it through and so that deep increases really what will give us refuge In the face of an uncertain. World. A reading that I've always liked goes like this. It says this life is a test. It is only test. If it had been an actual life, you would've received further instructions on where to go and what to do remember this life is only a test. I remember when I first heard this and it really struck a chord and and I feel who can really sense in our current times so much as up for grabs, the coronavirus and Konami and really the rights of vulnerable populations democracy and our earth is in distress. So. The degree of uncertainty is really spiked and we can sense how with this little security were all trying to sense how to navigate. What's the best guidance on how to proceed? So if we look closely, we can see the ways that we take refuge. For many I we take refuge in that online rabbit hole that we fall into for incredible stretches of time that trance we take refuge in staying busy we try to control the people around us. It might be through food or drugs or alcohol or sleep that were trying to take care of ourselves. And, this is the other side and away for many there's increase refuge in carrying relationships in and really being close with others and connecting with others and in meditation many people have started and deepen their practice refuge in nature refuge in serving others. In my book says I think two thousand twelve that I that it got published true refuge. I looked at how we react to life's basic insecurity to that that sense of help you know how what we take refuge in really varies and that I distinguished between the refuges that. Serve to wake up our hearts and minds and those that are kind of substitute that give temporary maybe a hit of relief. But in a way, keep us trapped and I called the latter false refuge is not because they're bad. But really because they keep us from a pathway that really allows. True. Healing and freedom. So tonight, I'd like to reflect on. The primary mode of. False refuge that underlies other false refugees and keep so many of us trapped and that's Our fear based stories and beliefs. And when we're insecure, how we even grasp more tightly to those fear beliefs, those limiting beliefs and they turn us against ourselves against others, they keep a separate. Select look at this together, and then how are meditation practices can? Free us from that that prison. Of limiting beliefs. And I WANNA dedicate this class to our beloved Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Who helped our entire society wake up from stories? About Limited worth are limited value. How she woke us up in a way that really directly extended to honoring the rights of all being she focused on women and many oppressed populations. Because her basic caring she she just basically honored the intrinsic value of all. And if we look at our limiting beliefs. That's what they don't. Do they forget that so We can't transform our society and we can't Hiller free ourselves if we don't exam and an undue are limiting stories are fear based believes. They're the root of suffering.
What's Next For Metal Gear Solid
"Series is hitting P. C.. J.. Gabe at Gamespot, the military series is hitting. Via Gog. Konami has announced previously only a select few games in the franchise were available outside of consoles the. Games hitting the service either MELA gear bill you're solid and bill your saw to substance were already to in. Taiwan, prior to the official announcement. Malaysia solid and substance actually had come to before and your saw five was also released four PC. But this should give those who never played playstation or xbox a chance to experience more of the Franchise Miller you're solid for to the Patriots remains a PS three exclusive. The new offerings don't seem to have any enhancements and you're getting the original metal gear solid rather than the Gamecube remake which I personally prefer I prefer the original not necessarily the game remains what I'm saying substance dot clear. Yeah. Substance does feature has an extra content not found mill solitudes original release. Releasing as the as collector's series, also be able to get five Castle Dania N. Contra. Games. Including Super See Dracula's curse and Simon's quest these games originally released on the s along with the series along with the Melody Games. The total cost for all titles is thirty two dollars. Tim is very exciting stuff for people who WanNa play these Games on. My one question is, when are we ever going to get your solid for? That's the thing anywhere else anywhere besides the playstation three it's bizarre. I am utterly shocked like back for all the young ones out there which is crazy at this point like even that era, there's probably of people listening to this right now that don't know what I'm referring to but when melanie solid four came out, it was the mean game of when's IT GONNA come to three sixty and it's like, oh, man, how many disc? On. Like nine there was like photoshop shops like xbox three, sixty cases with like that stick. With metal gear solid four on ten million discs But the fact of the actually never came out on another console is really weird and I think a lot of it has to do with the whole Kojima. Konami situation that went down around MCS five, but even then the fact that four wasn't. Like ported at some point. Di Around. With the architecture of the game because I know the game was advertised as a PS. Four game or a PS three game, it was kind of synonymous with. The launch of that console envier to some extent feels very built into like when you're transitioning from chapter to chapter, I remember getting the loading screen of. Solid Snake Smoking, the cigar and you. Believe. There are like tips in there to be like, Hey, you know take a break like the which took awhile. This. Going to take awhile I. Hey, you know relax take a break between sessions all that stuff that stuff seem. Very built into like the PS three system as far as at least like how this stuff look like it looked like a PS three like installation screen as opposed to just an in game thing. So I wonder if there's something about that game in particular that it's tough to port.
Seattle-area home prices unscathed by coronavirus pandemic
"The covid nineteen pandemic may have done a number on the Konami, but one area seems to be immune Seattle's. Is Still on fire, and all of this time inside has given homebuyers some time to think about what they need. Now Daryl fairweather knows something about that. She's the Chief Economist Redfin Hi Daryl. Hi? Be here. So Seattle's housing market was one of the hottest in the country before the pandemic give me the skinny on how it looks now. Seattle housing market is just as hot as it was before it's almost like that blip where we took a v-shaped dip is through it, and now the housing market is back. It's pretty astonishing. I know some potential first time home buyers had hoped. This was going to be there time. The economic disaster would help them actually get into the market that hasn't panned out at all why haven't prices gone down as the economy has taken a hit here. This pandemic recession is really nothing like the two thousand recession in the two, thousand, eight recession it started in the housing market with foreclosures, and after that, a lot of safeguards are putting in place where people with really excellent credit could get mortgages for homes or people who had the cash to buy homes outright, and since then home values have gone up especially in Seattle. So people have a lot of equity in. Their homes, which gives them a lot of cushion to keep paying their mortgage or refinance their mortgage at Super Low rates that we have right now. So there really isn't a lot of pressure on the housing market. If anything it's resilient. So a lot of people are working from home right now is well, maybe they need a little bit more space. How has that changed? What people are looking for in a House Yes that is another unique thing about this pandemic recession is is changing the relationship people have their homes before it used to be that the openly out was most desirable layout in a home. That's where you have this like really big area for entertaining where the kitchen flows. Until the living room people don't want that anymore. They don't want to hear the noise of their partner cooking while. They're trying to do work and living room are having their kids on their devices in the living room when they're trying to do work from there from the same space. So people want separate spaces for each family members. So they can each work from home or home school or whatever is that they're doing having just spent four months in the House with my family. I. That makes complete sense. We've just been together to learn. I think everyone's feeling that I wonder if part of this is a little bit of zoom and the because people can see into your house now. So the space that you're creating around you is also your professional environment in some cases. Yeah. I think that's true. It's not just the clothes that you wear to work anymore people are living and your background, and that gives them a sense of who you are as a person absolutely absolutely and You know buying and selling a home is an extremely emotional experience and we're at a pretty vulnerable state right now as humans I wonder how that showing up. Are you seeing that show up in the way people are buying and selling their homes? There's a lot of competition for home by right now, more than half of redfin offers are facing competition and I think that feeds into the behaviors we're seeing where people are really urgent to get home and we're also seeing war sight. Unseen offer is nearly half of homebuyers report having made an offer on a home before even setting foot on it. So people are kind of racing each other to see who can go through that three tour passes put an offer and fastest. So I think speed of the market is just accelerating. That sounds pretty reminiscent of the last frenzy we were having around home-buying, but I'm guessing this time around it might be because people aren't totally comfortable having a lot of people coming in and out of their houses right now. Yes both sellers and buyers are embracing technology. They don't want to have to go view the home in person times they'll just have one viewing or sometimes even zero viewings and they'll do a lot of their research online. So it's religious changing the way people are buying homes. I just cannot even imagine having an entirely electronic experience when you're dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars in one place that just seems a Little Bananas Daryl. That's. That doesn't that. That just seems crazy to me people are doing. What about people who can't afford to buy homes in Seattle right now what's happening to renters? So people who can't afford to buy in the city center there looking outside of the city they're looking at the suburbs or small towns even moving across the country because while homeownership is quite unaffordable on places like Seattle, you can get a lot more bang for your buck if you look in a more rural part of Washington or even in the center of the country and our A. Lot of people doing that because it seems like from the things that I'm hearing, you say location location location means different things right now because we are expecting different things from our environments. So then we track how many of our users are looking outside of their own metropolitan area, and that number had a record high last quarter of twenty seven percent. I've read from users looking outside the Metro. So that's been trying to the pandemic and it's probably going to continue especially as more employers. Say that they're going to let employees work for home or work remotely permanently.
EU Agrees To Relief Package In Grants, Loans To Bail Out Pandemic-Battered Economies
"The European Union is hoping and out of the box approach will bring some economic stability to the region during the pandemic leaders agreed to a two point one trillion dollar package. What makes this different is for the first time it's offering hundreds of billions of dollars in common debt for more on this game changing agreement. We're bringing in our Brussels bureau chief Dan Michaels Dan. Thanks for being here. My pleasure Dan in our reporting we have called this. Relief package unprecedented. This is a big shift. Perhaps in the way that the EU in the past has really shown it's fiscal power. Indeed this is a dramatic shift for the EU because you members until very recently have avoided giving the central authorities in Brussels the power to issue debt or raise taxes but the economic crisis brought on by the coronavirus has been so dramatic that this was the measure that they have decided on to stop the worst impact of the the recession that is hitting Europe particularly in the most Hard hit southern countries like Italy. Spain and Greece. Let's talk about Italy. Spain and Greece in particular. We spend a lot of time looking at the hardship among those three countries in this case the EU is saying the needs there are greater and were showing priority to the region. What sends out most is that the EU is willing to grant to those countries many of these the same countries that struggled a decade ago in the euro crisis but at that time Germans and other northern European countries only wanted to give them low interest. Loans Italy this time as a people remember was the first European country to be hit by corona virus. Northern Italy was devastated by the Italian. Konami was really hit hard. Spain was also hit very hard by the coronavirus Nelson for Greece because our economies are so dependent on tourism and summer travel and since the global economy has shut down it really has been damaging to those countries and so the economic after-effects even as Europe has reopened have been quite painful. And that's what these these measures agreed to this. European summit aimed to address. Let's talk about the to power players. Brokering this deal French. President Emmanuel Macron and Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel Merckel in particular has had this reputation of being very fiscally conservative yet. She's going out of her comfort zone. German Chancellor Angela Merkel's shift here is one of the most dramatic elements of what's happened over recent days for more than a decade. She has opposed anything like grants to other countries She couldn't imagine giving her attacks. There is money to Italians or Greeks Spaniards with no strings attached. No interest payments. Nothing like that. But a combination of factors over recent months changed our view. One is a French. President Emmanuel macron lobbied her. Very hard on this. She saw how dire the situation was. When when CORONA VIRUS HIT EUROPE IN MARCH BORDERS WERE CLOSED? Supply chains shutdown. The economy can pretty close to grinding to a halt and there was a strong feeling that the EU itself could be endangered. She also. She's not running for reelection next year. She said she won't so that gives you a little bit more freedom. So she has over. Recent weeks made if not one hundred eighty degree. Turn quite a dramatic metamorphosis.
Air freight prices surging in a “perfect storm”
"The very brief recap of the politics of this economic crisis is that the major indices the algorithms that drive them took great heart day from indications that Congress and the White House have come to terms on a trillion plus dollar economic. Rescue package. Rescue is probably a better word than stimulus just as random observation because industry by industry indications are that there's not much activity left to stimulate restaurants and hospitality MOMS and pops throughout this Konami big companies to like airlines. So let us talk trade as a way into our news today because with airlines all but shutting down air freight is getting. Oh so much. More expensive commercial airlines are trying to meet the demand but that transformation from passengers packages is not as simple. As you might think marketplace's Sabrina sure starts us off. The price increases for airfreight. Internationally are insane alone to London to. Us lades wandering twenty eight percent and along the front foot to us laid out of nine percent increase over the last week. Peter Stallion A freight derivatives broker. At F I S. The prices have surged because the capacity available in passenger. There's no longer running on a lot of international. Flights passenger jets are also carrying cargo. Usually eighty percent of cargo. Travels this way. Those passenger flights have evaporated at the same time. Demand has ramped up for example for medical supplies. So we of have this perfect storm. Neil Jones Shaw is executive vice president for flex port and Industrial Shipping Company. He says Passenger Airlines are taking advantage of surging cargo prices and adapting most of the major airlines around the globe. They're all offering what they called. Many freighters loading up passenger planes with cargo. It is not an easy thing to do. Physically or economically Samuel Angle is senior vice president at ICF airfreight is directional. There's a lot more air freight that comes into the US from China for example than the other way around. So what you're asking is to use half of the plane largely in one direction to cover the costs or profit that would have been covered by the whole plane in both directions. That's a tall ask for now. Prices are high enough for that to work for now in New York. I'M SABRINA SURE. For
How will we know when the coronavirus crisis is over?
"Time Kinda doesn't have an economic meeting. At the moment I mean yes. Days go by the virus spreads but this economy or really big chunks of it anyway is shutting down and if the economy is shutting down does time have any economic meaning. Which even as I say that out loud I understand a little bit bleak. So let's not go there. Shall we let us deal instead with what is right in front of us which is and I think? This is the technical term economically. Unbelievable Neil. Richardson is at Edward Jones. Davidson is at the Wall Street Journal. Everybody so Neil. Let me start with you on a cell phone. Obviously for appropriate. Social distancing reasons I heard you think it was. Cnbc this morning right. Okay Yeah and and you said at one point We have not yet figured out. What the worst of this is discuss. Well if you look at the most recent batch of economic data. It's all been pretty good. I mean we've gotten really bad. Data Out of China but domestically speaking so. Us labor market looks strong in February and those initial conditions were strong in the end place. But over the last two weeks we've seen a complete deterioration and normal course of life the fact that we're all singing and these home offices not going to bars and restaurants not going to movie theaters not going to sporting events not travelling not going on cruises has a huge economic impact that we haven't seen play out in the data and we haven't seen play out in terms of Corporations earnings estimates for this year. And as that data roll. Then we'll have a better understanding of those with the real pull not just the human toll which is great but the economic toll of the candidate we got a number from Goldman Sachs either yesterday afternoon or today their latest estimate for GDP I would say growth but GDP collapse is really the number. First quarter was like negative six percent growth or something and then second quarter. Which is the quarter that starts on April? The first they're predicting Goldman Sachs's the the guys who studied this stuff there. Twenty four percent to the downside on Gross Domestic Product growth. What do you do with that number? How do you wrap your brain around? Yeah it's like talking about the federal debt right. Twenty three trillion. What does that even mean we can't? It's really hard to I think understand and translate What that will look like. I guess it looks like literally everyone staying inside their houses like Neil said no one going shopping. No one going out to dinner. Nobody going on vacation It it's just the everything grinding to a halt at once it. You know we think back to two thousand eight two thousand nine. In a couple of weeks ago people were making comparisons to that and some people are saying. You know that's really. We're not there yet. And it's just quite amazing. How in two weeks? Everyone's thinking not only. Are We there? But it is a very good chance worse than that and then obviously a lot of that downturn was spread out over many months and this is just happening instantaneously and so. I think that's where you come. You think of it that way you can you kind of see where that Dramatic drop off. You know how how that could happen. Wrote exactly so. Neil a talk to me then about that. Duration part of an end specifically as it relates to the trillion dollar bailout. That is being bandied about on Capitol Hill. This is of course Senate Republican leader. Mitch McConnell's bill a trillion dollars. Plus maybe a little bit Last number I heard was that it was twelve hundred dollars. Individuals in twenty four hundred dollars for a couple which in Los Angeles will not cover rent let alone Helped things stabilize to staff It's going to be a time will tell. And you say that time is uncertain. Time has no meaning but also whether this is actually an actual privy sodomy. I mean this was tried during the two thousand eight financial crisis giving some kind of funds to households. What happened is that a lot of people just ended up saving that money The more targeted funds more impactful there but if people can't go anywhere and can't spend it on anything. It's going to be hard to see how that money goes back into the real Konami and unless it's targeted for people to help pay basic living expenses like the rent Even in Los Angeles maybe half the rent. Let me ask you this And I know the answer before I asked this question but why is Congress and the White House dithering on getting this done? I mean we can see the damage happening in real time. I think they're just trying to catch up. I honestly think I was just saying a couple of weeks ago people really even though you could see it in China then you could see it in Italy I think again. It was just so hard to grasp how real Hell real that was and so we heard plenty of people saying Two weeks ago you need to pass something to send checks to people right now but There there was this this view and they're still have you to some extent that right targeted relief is important sending stuff to people who need it most but now. I think that there are. The conversation is shifting a little bit. Where right Congress's is kind of dithering a little bit? Yeah I mean. They're moving quickly for Congress but they're doing a little bit over you know making sure we don't give this to billionaires and millionaires and people who don't need it. There's a growing chorus of people sang. Just send it and we'll figure that out later We'll cloud back through through taxes You know when people file next year. Let's let's not wait. Let's just do this
Attention Capital's Joe Marchese on the crisis - and opportunity - in how we measure eyeballs on the internet
"Welcome to the digital podcast Brian. Marcy this week I'm joined by Joe. Marquel JOE is the former Fox executive who is now the CEO of attention capital an investment firm and operating company. That's focused on those media. Companies THAT CAPTURE ATTENTION. Attention is required. One property girl boss. Jani discuss why he thinks the attention. Konami is in what he calls a state of subprime. And why you can still build an AD media company in two thousand twenty but just not one that's based on. Cpm DISPLAY ADS. Hope you enjoy Joe. Walk into podcasts. I thank you for having known each other so long. We have this is this is Serious throwback here so going back to social vibe you're we're GonNa talk about Social Vibe later. Gay But what you're doing. I mean you've had you've had a really fascinating career. I mean I think when we first knew each other You start up then And you went through that startup pivoted. You did the pivot and everything this you sold it. Yup He had an accent the and then instead of doing the sort of serial entrepreneur route you went in to like a large media organization. Yeah and so You saw the innards of that right and now you're back sort of on. I would say the investor side but something more explain. What attention is so? I mean attention is a company. It's an IT's an operating company It's just a company that's built to buy other companies And and kind of that fit a particular thesis okay. What's the thesis That the entire global economy runs on top of the attention. Economy of which advertising is the most visible market And that the attention economy is in a state of subprime. Okay explain The mets like subprime. Yeah yeah the the metrics that we use to measure Attention or that we used to represent attention or becoming less and less tied to what people are actually spending their time doing so. I think that there's An opportunity right now to say that there are things that have better and more attention or higher quality attention than the metrics give them credit for I mean you guys talk about this plenty and digitally as cover the industry of advertising but in the in the chase of really what we'd call vanity metrics impressions and page views an There so uncoupled from what people are actually what quality attention is and so therefore things that have quality attention are probably undervalued of put simpler We've kind of convinced the world's been convinced by by big tech for the most part that everything can be measured And if you can't measure it don't buy it then that to me makes makes me think everything that's hard to measure is probably undervalued. Yeah but you've kind of been on about this for a while you're right because I can remember talking to you about different like different metrics. Vp and whatnot. Because you saw the problems when it comes to CBC or CPM right And then I'm sure like within than Fox. He saw the limits particularly of of how. Tv is measured. Yeah and and you know it's funny People assume that you'd really hate TV. Measurement as a digital person. Yeah but to be honest like I'm kind of bullish on panel data because panel data. It's hard to fraud Like like I mean they you know. There's there can be entire phone farms. In other countries that Census data like digital data. Pick up but sit at digital guys. Were always an usually. They're all guys. I were always railing against Nielsen. And how terrible Nielsen is and you get to the other side and your leg. Actually this isn't that no no. It's not that bad I will say like look. Nielsen can be inaccurate. But there's not a warehouse full of TV's racking fake impressions right like like panel. Data is a representation of What a certain set of people are doing. And then you extrapolate like. This is how much time we have the. You know. It's all the classic things like every every four there's more ad impressions in the world and digital world. The more people are watching more ads. And Chiavari think we're just trying to shove them in there so this is all true so why in the world of all the things that you would want to invest in would media. I mean it seems like a terrible. I don't WanNa talk you out of it. It's too late to do too late. I'm here explain to me why this is an opportunity so I actually think that I think there's a couple of things that that are huge opportunities right now which is As platforms grow and as as they chased these vanity. Metrics Trust begins to erode right quality. Goes Down I mean look all platforms engineered towards volume not quality. And and what I mean by that is they are if you make something for a penny and sell it for two pennies. You've made a penny of profit if you make something for ten dollars until it for twelve dollars you've made two dollars of profit. Humans like the two dollars of profit that makes sense computers. Say That none of that. Penny one hundred percent margin. Let's do that a trillion times right and that is why you see like some of the largest advertisers in the world on on the major platforms. are selling very low cost goods right so same thing applies to products as applies to news so in this world where trust is a roading. the curator brands kind of become king. Like no one goes to the front page of Amazon negotiating. You don't you. Don't start at the front page of time to go shopping. You come there with an idea of what you're going to buy And I think the great example of this wire cutter right. I mean wire cutter which you know. curates what electronics. You should buy. has built trust with the community Obviously The New York Times acquired a while ago but these curator's in wire cutter I think is to the next evolution of of the web. I guess we're still going at the Web. Go for here. What craigslist was to the window version? and then post craigslist. There was Angie's list and that was a brand being put on top of it. I mean I have something to shock you With Angie did not meet every contractor. Angie's list those are those are television. Commercials Yeah and that's a brand that got built up and why does that matter? We'll because people would start there rather than starting out a search engine or starting an open platform. I think what's interesting is particularly. Let's stick with the wire cutter as an example. I mean people in media. I think love love the wire cutter. I think with good reason Mostly because it's an anti-scale play anything algorithm mic. It seems like is gamed. Yes I mean because when you go to Amazon and like I don't know about you but if I'm buying those like okay the bestseller best reviews whatever and then you're like you know we've written about it you know there's Yup armies of fake one hundred dollars and anything that can be gamed like that will be and that's what brands are supposed to be. So I I'm a huge fan like I am. I am anti a lot of things in the way. Advertising is kind of polluted The Internet and chasing kind of the metrics that don't matter I'm a huge fan of brands. See Brands are the things that you hold responsible for that you trust too right like Brand less like Kind of commodities. If there's you know lead in the toy or they're you know the you know the classic stories of you know Tylenol. An the the brand is the thing that consumers hold responsible when you go to a platform It's almost like you. They're extracting the margin from brands. And I think that there's a huge role to be played in. In consumers minds to be building up brands that can be cures for them for different areas of life. Okay so this was the the the thesis differentiated. Good time because trust is is you know. I think there was that article Max read wrote. It does sort of everything is fake on the Internet a couple years ago. That sort of summed up this this period that you know we were talking over the years right. It was all leading up to this this primis of online advertising See Pile of money That'd be nice right money. It's attention capital capital. So it's a great way nickname your company capital and people like you and I can only imagine So how much what is like two hundred million. I NOT NON reported non real time to to talk. I don't know so. What have you bought so far So first partnered with James Murdoch's lupus systems we bought the TRIBECA Film Festival invested in controlling stakes together and then Girl boss most recently company. Okay so explain. Each of those different types of properties. But why does this fit your thesis? Well so you look at areas of life where people are looking for curation in so tribeca in the entertainment space and girl boss kind of in employment career Lifestyle and so the way we look at it as he'd attention capital is there's two types of things there's community brands so we define a community. Brandis if they threw an event. Would someone get on an airplane and go there Do they permission to curate? Some aspect of the world's tribeca. Obviously they haven't event They literally curate films. They don't make all the films they tell you. Here's what to see with someone. Where the brand on their t shirt. They don't have to be an apparel company but people would wear tribeca shirt and is the community self sustaining without always having to make content right because if you always have to make content. That's a treadmill that you have to run on versus. Is there a community of people who people go the events The thing that gets the most exciting about TRIBECA 's ethos as a brand that was founded after nine eleven downtown. We're here in downtown. New York and And the idea of independent storytelling equality versus volume. Like you just can't see that many movies like we have to be able to curate down to select few all of those things I mean. That's a brand that were incredibly excited about and a founder and CEO. And Jane Rosenthal that we want to work with and kind of expand I. I'm struck that both of them have a quote unquote events component. They're able to turn people out Yup We we are big believers digital so I might be talking my own book cure but we think that there is something to be said about you know and I think people are coming around to about being able to turn out a community of people. Hundred percent We are huge huge believers in in a I R L digital connection real life to digital connection that it's proof that you have that type of influence in the world like versus again factory said the algorithms can be game but people showing up at a movie theater camp. Yeah I mean like you know. I always went back to the sort of game. Of Game of thrones recaps. It's like you know the the reason that there were. So many. Game of thrones recaps. Is I mean it's not just because of like passion or the brand is it's it's because that's what turned page views right exactly. It's entrepreneur right. I don't hate the player. Geno hate the game. I agree on some of the players.
Myrla -, The Underground
"Went to college in Manila from nineteen sixty. Nine to nineteen seventy-one. I studied at the Philippine College of Commerce. It is a public college. That's being funded by the Philippine government. It wasn't area of hotbed of activism. Very close to the Melanie. Impalas were the president of the Philippines. Recites college was a time of turmoil in the Philippines tear swept? They called the first quarter storm. It was like an awakening on the part of the students understanding the basic problems of Philippine society. Why they spied verty Wedneday Konami so bad. It's also a period of fighting and battling the government. Our school is very close to enjoy and they had the battle of Mineola their students. Battling vesting students getting killed. They call it the days of Disquiet and the Knights of Greens. Washburn dug in my work. Video listen form of recycling bins. There's no other done in Nazi Not Democratic A. No it wasn't part of that kit because I was a free appearance always told me don't join that. Don't do that here. I just came out of high school however at school house in the battlefield and every day there would be room to room. Discussions people going around to explain issues. Margus Juggling funds from education to the military. He was preparing to declare martial law. So you get out of people becoming more radicalized in that situation in fact our professors Hadash go to the millennium balance to the park in front of it so there would be a lot of discussion groups and explanation and also clearly fighting the microadministration to stop the practice of putting more money into the military and also not having enough books. Not Having a better classrooms going into issues of sending troops the Vietnam and then also the relationship between the United States government in the Philippines. I was in that situation and I am hearing it everyday and then I started thinking. Yeah it does make sense to me. The Vietnam War was also an opening. It really opened my mind to the larger issues of our government still being dictated by the US in terms of policy. The treaty south are still existing. The practically makes us into a new type of colony so he started turning to the books in reading and listening more to though so came to the classrooms whom I earlier was debating debating for the reasons that they couldn't believe that we could change this society and so I started becoming one of them.
Seeking Climate Positivity by 2030, Ikea to Overhaul Entire Business
"I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily happy Friday friends. Twenty twenty could be the year when a new kind of rivalry moves front and center sustainability. We've seen it before as younger consumers increasingly demand environmental and social responsibility more and more companies are pledging to clean up their supply. Chains use recycled plastic shrink water. Use in fact we reported on such business where late last year when we talked about target and Walmart racing to outshine in each other's use of solar power this year expect this race to eco-friendliness to start becoming his. Commoner rivalries more traditional measures of success like sales in profits giant furniture retailer. Ikea kicked it off in December by pledging to invest two hundred million dollars to become climate positive by twenty thirty. What haven't heard the term climate positive. Well it means reducing more emissions than an organization emits. That's a big deal for global companies like Ikea which has more more than four hundred twenty stores worldwide in order to achieve climate positively. Kia can't just cut down on travel. Use more renewable energy it has to rethink how how it designs all of its inexpensive furniture in the first place along with how consumers shop for it and how they eventually get rid of it. According to Fast Company in Short Short Ikea's commitment demands an entire overhaul of its forty six billion dollar business battle include choosing new building materials committing to responsible forestry Korean reforestation and helping transform the operations of suppliers and behavior of customers. I keep promising to step up. Its push for circular economy KONAMI. meaning that everything gets reused rather than winding up in a landfill. I is not the only large company to pledge. Climate positively other major announcements have come from Businesses like fast fashion retailer H. M. which has pledged to achieve it by twenty forty but as the Wall Street Journal noted industry has yet to agree on what the term climate aamot. Positively actually means for instance. I Ki- wants to do it. Literally without using carbon offsets like planting trees to make up for plane travel for instance but other firms embrace carbon offsets actions available to them right now even if they may not be perfect choices. Well it may be obvious but success S. is far from guaranteed here as CNBC noted I- Kia recently win in the wrong direction. In two thousand eighteen. The company reported emissions of almost twenty seven in million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent or jump of three percent over twenty sixteen. Akia chalked that went up to company growth. The business has aggressive aggressive expansion plans including building new stores in India. One question facing any large companies how to reduce emissions while continuing to grow. That's something I ki- appears appears to be studying
The Business Owner's Path to Success
"This is the entreleadership podcast where we help business. Leaders screw themselves their teams and their prophets. I'm your host Alex Judd and here at the start of twenty twenty twenty. We want you to hear something. A loud and clear from entree leadership. We exist to help this small business owner win and we get so so excited about that. And here's why we get so excited about that because it's possible and not only is it possible. There's a lot of things going on right now that if you have the path it's actually probable. That's right you can win as a small business owner and so today of the start of two thousand twenty entreleadership senior you leaders Daniel Tardy and Sarah Swain want to share with you. Everything we've learned to be true about the state of small business in America. It's better than it's ever been. There are more resources. There's more technology. There are more people talking about small business and how to have one and how to lead one the history of our country and it's not an economy thing it's a mindset thing and anybody in their basement can have a dream and decide that With a little bit of a Google search a little bit of turning some things on grass roots and getting scrappy they can start something to get off the ground and get the first customers and grow it and start hiring. And there's more tools and resources and knowledge than ever before and it's it's an incredible time access to that when you think about now ed click of a button. You can get answers to problems that you have or things that you're trying to achieve in just a millisecond and it's fun it's exciting and what we're seeing when we're talking to small business owners around the entire country is most of them are having a blast. Most of them are more excited about the future than even a decade ago. What business owners were saying about how things were looking and It's it's crazy. I think we hear stories of these big companies all the time or these flash in the PAN companies but I don't think people realize that a majority of the backbone of our economy are actually small businesses and how exciting that is that people have taken their passion into business and they are the ones who are providing the jobs and and they are the ones that are driving the Konami. We just don't get to hear about them every day. That's powerful and we see all the time. How small business is the backbone of the American economy? It's keeping this this economy moving but at the same time it's almost like there's this dichotomy where we see the people that are winning and are crushing it right now but then we also see all the stats of so. Many businesses fail within the first five years so many businesses don't even get off the ground so many leaders crushed by the thing that they're building. So how do we look at those two things and how do we as an organization entreleadership respond to kind of that dichotomy. Well I think a lot of the stats are driven by people who halfway do it. You know. It's it's not. It's not that cautious so hard to build a business and so much work and you're really rolling the dice. If you think you want to go do this you really not if you're going to work hard and you show up and you believe in something and you're committed to it and you're GonNa take it seriously you're probably GonNa win but so many people dabble in it so many people kinda stick their toe towing the water technically you know air quotes they open a business and then three months later they failed. They close up shop. Well they weren't. It was a hobby. Maybe you know so that really kind of inflates the stats auto hobby or they are looking at these businesses. That are making the news and are spending money like crazy. They're not using commonsense. They think oh I can I I can do that. Too and make a big splash. And that's what success looks like instead of using common sense principles on what makes sense to really grow their business. They're comparing themselves in. They're trying to keep up with with the Joneses but in the business world in general it seems like it's not a good strategy to just do what you see on the news. We hear about the businesses that are big successes. But we don't realizes is is that is one business out of how many who have decided to take out debt and make big choices and take big risks in these massive ways and it looks. It's like it's paying off but that's one business out of how many that that works for right and I know so much of kind of our recognition in that over the course of the past. Several years has kind of brought us to a stage as an organization being entreleadership where we've got a renewed sense of purpose and direction as an organization so I love for Y'all to tell our audience a little bit about what that purpose is and why we truly exist as entreleadership. Our roots have always been the small business owner. Just just like Dave started all of this organization on a card table in his living room. If you got a card table you got a shot and somebody that can start something in their living room and grow it to. What Davis done is big national brand just inspires people at inspires me everyday and I work here? It never gets old and when I hear stories of people that had this grassroots beginning and then they're able to really build something that has a significant size and magnitude and his providing jobs and making a difference in the world and serving their customers like that's the American dream and so because it's our story as a company and it's what has become the story of thousands of business owners that we've helped transform from being stuck or being early on onto really being a peak performing business. We just get so lit up about that story that we have doubled down and just said that we're stubbornly committed to small business. You know it with a a big brand like this. We get pulled towards what about leadership in corporate America or you know what about just general leadership or high performance habits and productivity and. I'm a fan of all that stuff but when we're trying to be all things to all people were nothing to nobody so we really focused on that. Small business has been a struggle. I wish I could say that. This was super easy and super clear to us all along. We knew we had this passion this heart but by degrees other people were drawn into the information we are providing and we looked up and we had people in there that weren't necessarily really small business owners and we really found ourselves going okay. This is a turning point decision. You hardly so I just said that. So beautifully and as absolutely the drumbeat of of our area you know this but there was a year and there were we had to make some decisions and say are we going to double down on this or are we going to start broadening our our business and what we offer and providing this and we're certainly not mad at those people they can come and sit in the room and join the conversation but we're not going to change our content and who we are to serve everyone. We are stubbornly committed. Exactly as I said we have such a passion and such a heart for the small business owner who is out there grinding. It out day in and day out. You know making sure that they're meeting payroll and they are better leaders and business owners family members because of what they're doing everyday that is what we love A love that a no Oh steph. Godin has talked on this podcast before about the difference between being a wondering generality or a meaningful specific and it was a powerful day for me as a team member member to sit in the room that y'all were leading the meeting and you said were putting our stake in the ground. We exist to help the small business owner win so out of that now that we have have that clearly defined purpose the small business owners who were out to serve. What is the next step from that? Like how do we start to really get specific about how we're going going to serve that group of people as entreleadership. Alex your exactly right. Our heart is to help the small business owner win. What we figured out is? It's it's if we can help a small business owner win the compounding effect of what then they will do to build an incredible team and that team has families and those families have children and in that business has customers. There's just this incredible butterfly effect that if we can get to the small business owner and help them where indirectly can help thousands more people through them. And so that's what we really get excited about focusing on and when you ask what what is next when we go. We're here to help. Small Business Owners win we have to zoom out and go what makes a small business. This owner not win.

These Are The WORST Games of 2019
"The worst games of twenty nine thousand nine all right and definitive. This is definitive and we played any of them. You and I have played one of them. Okay Yeah I wonder if I've played any of them I know I haven't I bet which means I did. Good Yeah you chose wisely. That's true we put up an article on this This week the article was very specifically the worst reviewed games and it was based on the metacritic scores. Because the truth is allow. These games idea doesn't even review because if it's a game that no one's ever heard of it's not doing anyone much services say hey here's a game you've never heard of. It's really bad. That's a good way to not very useful information information. But there's some high profile games from high profile Delo developers and publishers like squaring and left alive. Whoa you remember that one? No and it's Square. Kleenex live weight in review. We did that one. Yeah okay so we're only talking about the ones. We reviewed. Okay well there might be one gender Eh. Critics gems Yeah this is actually our lowest score the year three point eight. Wow that's as low as we got got. Yeah that is a rare the score for us. Yeah let's have. Some people were interesting. Because it used the artist that used to work a metal gear so the art was sort of reminiscent of Medicare but Kulik Kulik pinky like kind of style. Yeah Okay in our view. Call The creek creaky and frustratingly broken mix of stealth action. That's just what you want. is frustrating frustrating stealth any game. That's the worst combination possible so three point eight is as low as got. It's been a long time since we've given out like a one. I looked. Yeah I think two thousand and five what was it. It was like Elf bowling but it was ever boy it was elbowing one and two one. One carts yeah. That's really when you what about like bowling was free as like a flash game that you played free. But you'd rather pay for it. You WanNa play on your Nintendo DS. At least a two. If there's two games in their oneplus exact maybe it was one zero or two point five. We were in a meeting where a pair told us there was zero given even out and we said what was it for immediately. Should the name of a hockey game that we've never heard of so. I don't know if it's true or not I want to say I don't know if I want to say it was a an Olympic game it was it was a hockey. We're all right. It's both of them. They re released that year is hockey game and the review is zero and it says when you make a new game will write a new review. Yeah it was just. It was last year's game with new box art which I think happened with Viva this year actually on switch. But that's in their the twenty legacy addition addition for that was a switch version and I Jeans Review. I think it was Simon reviewed. It said this honestly no genuine reason. I could give you to purchase fever. twenty-nine switch if you already own fee for nineteen on switch which we gave it a four and even nineteen was matic. Simon should have given it zero that wouldn't really reserves Zeros for like utterly broken. I can't barely low the game. I'm not confident. Giving his era wouldn't break something on energy. I if I were I would make it my goal to make a game that I would review and give zero two. So how would you so that you can get the Guinness World Record for quickest failure. Well I think the point it would be a lot of copies because it's bad that because we get attention women get attention because it got zero. I'm picking up with SAM. swigging down what. He's saying. Novelty like Munib on twitter. Actually broken game generally ignore Games we get us to review it the slap slap on like marvel on the title thanks Star Wars. And you just can't let expensive license and zero game. Sounds like a really bad journey an evil Virginia's that Evil billionaire genius. And that's exactly what it's been my time doing or if it came from a studio well-known studio that we typically review games from either they can throw all their money away and with crash bandicoot literally crash like it just crash crash. That's the only way to get zero. A Contra game came out this year a new Contra Game Longtime Damon forced me to play we did play it and play. We haven't talked since looks like we're talking to each other right now but I'm actually talking to Tina Justin only Samsung even in the room. It's weird record. Santana San Spread separately. So who do we play. Cj I think to the three players top down Contra game and to be Fair Contra has had top down segments before entre three the alien wars. Yeah but it's just it wasn't didn't feel like a contra game but it was like Okay Schutte top down thing gave it a four. That's not okay okay. It would be a sick Sam but but I didn't review it giving it a sick I play enough to review withhold judgment. It was pretty bad and it's just like honor consciousness in a very sad state of affairs over Konami right now so it's been a long running beloved game series. It hadn't seen a new entering a long time Hammond Hoof. That was not what people want. Can you imagine being the artists digital the metal gear art and then being like I'm out of here and getting your game review as a three point eight or do you think contras a good candidate for getting unlike the God of war style boot like take it very seriously. Lemur cinematography version just like lean into the seriousness of the character and like introspection inspection of his past bill and bringing all sorts bill. That's a good point. It's already a knockoff of Terminator Alien. Yeah so it's like like just maybe those franchises should make a game but I know alien have some pretty good speaking of all that this is a this is a tangent retake a strange corner I I just think new term bombed at the box office new Rambo bombed New Alien bombed last year or two years ago. I just wonder if like that. That's sort of the eighties. Installed your wells. Drying up or nine hundred installs franchises for very cheap and make a game that would get scored as zero journey. The silliest Yes yes exactly yet they did blade runner sadly also later honor which I thought was a good movie credible movie I loved that movie. Okay moving we on bad games worst games. WWE K twenty which has been pending? It's been bad for a long time to have a fever and w beyond there that are like that rejected by their audience is in that bad is really really crappy. Because as we're like the heights of their franchises either Games Assira could give that a four point three really really botched. WWe This year Mitchell. It's a buggy mess though buggy mess but his game play also feels notably worse than previous years. Remember this stretchy people running around doing so. I mean if you look at it as a comedy game. It's a nine awesome. See that's the thing if I had it for you that game aside from and not knowing anything about WB. I think it gets and pleasure out of it because it was just so stupid. Able there's vibrating through the ropes simulator. You Guys Know Avalanche Studios. What do they make you mad? Max and just 'cause yeah yeah they put out a game. This year called generation zero. No one knows that I know nobody knows that but it they put out a game and we gave it a four okay. I know it's crazy. You would think Max okay which is really good and just goes but they put out this generation zero game who've pretty bad and then there's Wolfenstein Wolfenstein Wolfenstein cyber pilots we didn't that's the VR game. We actually didn't review it but it has a fifty on metacritic in there. Much of the criticism is directed at It's a very short story. underwhelming comment combat in general lack of content. So it doesn't make everybody universally puke. nope is that would be a really cool. VR game another goal of mine all those people that play VR. And they're like Nah doesn't make me motion sick. I'll make in my next game. You want the badge for that. A terrible kind of a bad year for Wolfenstein youngblood didn't make much of an impact either. I didn't play it but I wanted to play it. I still want to play. That's that's impact. Can you believe the latest leisure suit. Larry the reviewed very well. It has a fifty if lead is Larry hasn't been good or popular appealed forever and had thirty years of games. Like how do you reconcile that. Who is making it an exchanging license and buying it and making more games? I just I don't get how it happened. I think it's the original guy critters. Don't make Larry Yeah. Speaking of Terminator there was a new terminator game called Terminator Resistance. We gave it a four. Don't remember that that might not just came out wrestling okay. What I was going to share leaser shoot suit? I can't say that leisure suit. Larry how did you just do that. And a lot of the original game had very body content and and so a to ensure that no kids played it. You had to answer trivia question when you booted the game up about that. Only adults would know what was the name of Presidents Reagan. President Reagan's Blah Blah Blah. Pretty good. I'm pretty good or like what were those jokes and Shrek that you didn't get when you were a kid that would be like. Yeah well you know whose voice of Donkey and Shrek where you can watch Shrek. Shrek on the gameboy advance. That's that was top of mind can watch it. Yeah Movie Gameboy. Advance video is a thing and it was striking another movie. That was two movies. He's on one cartridge. Maybe it was worse than trek. Yeah it was clearly. Yeah you're blowing my mind right now. Blew my mind that cart yes we we absolutely solution bag. Gb and it's not a game it's the movie is on only that but there was episodes of Nick toons shows and episodes of PLO. Come on and they were like thirty bucks for two episodes. They played on the kids. Like just 'cause there's laboratories on the size of a postage stamp uh-huh uh-huh isn't that crazy. That's crazy I never knew that. Yeah Super Interesting Oh crackdown three. That might be the most one of the most high-profile a high profile games on this list. We do it overall for but we gave the multiplayer component. Oh No I'm sorry. Overall got five the multiplayer four okay for my GM. Crackdown game. No crackdown was so good to not so good Shinmun three. That finally came out the one of the worst games this year. Five point nine now so just on the cop stats cusp of okay. Yeah Mediocre I think for five point nine nine runs down mediocre
