Halloween Special Repeat of "Walk Like an Egyptian" a discussion with Comedy Club waitresses. Show 8a - burst 01
"We're gonna talk about what it's like being employees to comedy club ladies and gentlemen. Let's hear for patty soule sherry lane stove owner well. That was pretty incredible. Alright so let's get thing kick things off of padding sherri. We already talked to lenin earlier. Podcast she was a hostess kitchen manager house. Mc and being an entertainer in managing so my club so historically very important but the club also wouldn't have had it success without a really tremendous staff that stuck around for many years and part of that staff patti and sheri who were cocktail waitresses back in the day. So patty will start with you. How did you come to work for me. It laughs well first of all. I'd like to say that i was head. Waitress knows what that's all. She earned the title but above where we got that out of the way. Any millennial listening out there. It was okay to say that back. Then i actually got started laps unlimited. Because i was dating your bartender one of your bartenders. There and i came in one night with him. just to see the show and It was a birdcage secret person who this was. This was ben tony. Oh i didn't. I thought you guys met at the club so you guys previously and he brought you in. We had been dating for awhile then. Tony is another a entertainer slash employee that we interviewed in a previous show. So i knew you guys at data for a couple of years. But i didn't know it was. I thought you meant out laugh so it was pretty laugh. So that's interesting so you came in as a guest an audience member. Did you have a good time. I had a great time. I remember it was wonderful. And i just i loved the whole atmosphere of the club itself and they happen to be short a waitress that night and ben. Tony mentioned to you. Lyn was could have been. T- may be or bob bob. Probably you know my girlfriend is out there in the audience. And i know she's had cocktail waitress experience so so i i just kind of went. Sure i'll do it so i was waitress that night night instead of being in the audience. That's hilarious great

"The price of gold in Marx, and of course, went to infinity more or less because the currency hyperinflated. But it wasn't a straight line. And so if you had, if you had callable debt, there are multiple 80% draw downs in gold during that pass because there are periods of time where German officials made it look like they were going to stabilize the currency and they raised it in for a little bit of time, but then it broke again. And so you would have another huge leg up, and then it would correct. And so the key is to have long denominated debt like a mortgage or say how Michael sailors tried to construct his balance sheet rather than that type of like the short term leverage that is callable. Or just put leverage side and not use it, but just have those real assets that whenever the dust settles and people have to reconstruct a new system that you have things of value that people will want back in the future. It could be money, could be productive assets like hard goods. It sounds like it would be bad for pensions as well, though, because they tend to hold bonds, right? Yeah, it would be not good for most pensions. And the tricky part for them is because they have to meet these target return expectations, but they also have to minimize volatility. And so historically, they've held a pretty good amount of bonds. And so it's also I mean, if you look at say investors in Europe, they tend to have more Bond heavy portfolios. It's just been a big kind of facet there. And so yeah, there's large pools of capital that would be very impaired by bonds doing what they did in the 40s, which is basically having negative interest rates when you factor in inflation for a lengthy period of time. So how's Lynn Odin prepare him for this? Well, my approach is, you know, I like some degree of diversification, so obviously I have a large Bitcoin allocation. I still have my gold allocation. And then I have a range of productive equities..

"So there are catalysts that I think could get the world to a more hyperinflationary type of scenario. But my overall view has just been focusing on the inflation side more so than the question of hyperinflation. Yeah. I mean, Jack's tweet, you could say was slightly hyperbolic. I mean, other people would point and say no, it's correct. This will happen, it might happen, but I would struggle to see the idea that the U.S. would enter a hyperinflation. But I think like you said, you can focus on the actual inflation that's happening at risk of inflation. And as you rightly noted, like Turkey and Argentina are both very high inflation at the moment. And that has dramatic effects. That has dramatic effects on the local economy and the people who live there. So even if we were to see ten, 15, 20% inflation in the U.S., the UK, that still would be a very bad scenario for a lot of people, especially if this was something to carry on for a decade. Yeah, and so one of the big things that I focus on is the fact that because we're towards the end of this long-term debt cycle, where they pretty much have to hold rates low, despite inflation because otherwise the sovereign entities are insolvent. That opens the possibility of this spiraling out of control. And so if you want to make the hyperinflationary argument, you basically would go back to history and say that no few currencies lasted particularly long. And so the structure that we've had in place since the 1970s, which is that the entire world is on a Fiat currency standard is very unique in human history and it's only so far, 50 year experiment. And so especially this is the first time that the Fiat currency system is tested with an inflationary environment while we have this much debt in the system and real interest rates are this low. So the last time we went through this was like the 40s in the developed world, the 2030s and 40s and back then, they had a gold peg. And so a lot of them had to break their gold peg, but then they reestablished their gold peg at a lower level and eventually, of course, transitioned to the bretton Woods system. And so they still had a tether to commodity based money, whereas now we're going through a similar phenomenon, but in a purely currency regime. And so there are a lot of big questions about how they're going to navigate this. And one of my overall views is that basically I would position for hyperinflation similar to how I positioned for inflation anyway. And so my overall view is basically have hard scarce assets productive assets or good monetary goods. So some people they prefer goals. Some people prefer Bitcoin, some people prefer mix of both. So those combinations of, say, commodity producers, hard assets, good real estate, and then good monies is the protection either way against a full range of kind of inflationary scenarios..

"Jax tweet? Sure. Yeah, the hyper inflation tweet? Yeah, so he inflation is going to change everything is happening, which I thought was a fair tweet, I mean it's like 73,000 likes right now. But I thought it was a fair tweet because it wasn't geographic specific. And suddenly I think it certainly possible that we're going to see a hyperinflationary event in certain countries, but then he replied to someone, it will happen in the U.S. soon and so the world. What is the rate that is considered hyperinflation? Is it like 40, 50% though? So it's often considered 50% a month, which is thousands and thousands of percent per year, because you compound that for 12 months, exponentially, you need extraordinarily high inflation. So for example, even the high inflation of Turkey and Argentina is not necessarily considered hyperinflation, whereas, for example, obviously the Weimar Republic was a hyperinflation, Zimbabwe was hyperinflation. I believe Venezuela classified for long periods of time as hyperinflation. But above a certain point, it almost doesn't matter too much. I mean, obviously, there's a difference between say 25% inflation in Turkey versus say a 1 million % inflation in Venezuela. There's a difference there. But once you start getting into double digits, inflation becomes a very obviously a major issue in any market. And historically, hyperinflations tend to happen. There's kind of two big ingredients that go into making hyperinflations happen. So one is some sort of damage to your productive systems. So that can include, for example, in some bob way, they reorganized how they do farming. There's basically social conflict there. That's a very long story, but you know, you had a production collapse. And of course, why mar Germany after World War I? They were impaired in terms of the damage they sustained from the war and the economic consequences that. The other big ingredient is when you have liabilities denominated in an asset that you can't print. So in developed markets, they have a lot of debt, but it's in their own currency. And so it's somewhat easier to quote unquote taper Ponzi. You can kind of do that kind of over time. Whereas if you're an emerging market, and if you say, you owe dollars. There's no way that your country can create dollars other than earn them through trade. And so you can pretty easily run into default scenarios and currency collapses. Same thing for why my republic, they owed war reparations that were denominated in gold, and so it contributed to their being unable to service those debts. And so generally in developed markets today, we don't directly see the ingredients of hyperinflation. But so my base case for a while, the call that I've been making for the past couple of years is that I expect the 2020s to be a pretty inflationary decade. Now, hyperinflation has not been my base case to develop markets. But I don't rule it out as a possibility because after a certain point, if people lose confidence in the system, if they don't want to buy the bonds, and if you start to see out of control kind of denser monetization, then anything is possible. And so especially when you combine that with energy scarcity or D globalization or potentially any sort of black swan event that could occur like a natural disaster or even some well telegraphed events. If China ever were to say at Taiwan, then there's potential war between new two nuclear powers. Who knows what can happen there..

"Meaning that 2010s is all about abundant energy 2020s as I think going to be a much more scarce energy or high price energy environment. Now, that'll still probably come in cycles because if energy prices get high enough and it starts hurting demand because people can't afford it. And if it causes governments to try to temporarily tighten either their monetary policy or their physical policy to rein in that inflation, that can temporarily put the economy into a recession because you can hurt demand. And so when you hurt demand, that can pull down energy prices. But then they end up stimulating again. And so then we go into the next cycle. And so it won't be a straight line. I would kind of fade these kind of parabolic spikes that you might see and say natural gas prices in Europe or coal prices in China, because if price goes up high enough, that can kind of bring on excess supply for a period of time and also there's that function to potentially cut demand. But I think it's going to be one of those things that the overall trend is going to persist with us for a while. Because we have not invested much in it. And the how severe it gets partially depends on how fast people are allowed to respond to it. If you keep kind of disincentivizing investment in some of those, then that can keep the pressure up for longer, whereas if the market is able to come in and make all those new supplies, then that can make it so that I think there's still the 2020 decade we'll have say higher energy prices than the prior decade, but they might not be as crazy as the otherwise could be. What are you tracking with regards to inflation right now? Because I know the inflation rate in the U.S. had a quoted 5.4%, I think it was the Bank of England as just warned that UK inflation will hit possibly 5% or more. They think early next year I think we've just had 3.4%. We just had a bigger rise once a month rise. I think records or something. Also, nobody seems to agree with or trust these figures, Preston, mutual friend. He says, I think he says recently, most of these inflation, what the inflation rates are probably three times according amounts..

"The nuclear side of things, I recently spoke with Harry Sullivan. He was talking about new generation for reactors. I'm not sure if you've looked at that and also I've seen those have been a breakthrough in fusion. So there was an MIT project that achieved a major advance towards fusion energy. So it feels like stuff is happening, but we are way behind where we need to be because we're having energy issues in the UK. I think there's been blackouts in China in India, there's the issue with the grid that happened in Texas. Have you looked much at these type four nuclear reactors? To a moderate stand, it's not my key expertise, but essentially the market can shift towards these smaller nuclear reactors. And so historically, they were all sorts of security concerns around having smaller and more widespread nuclear reactors. And because of the CAPEX and the regulation, it was more cost effective to build a very, very giant nuclear reactor. But theoretically having these smaller ones can be very useful. And then, of course, there's new generation tech out there. There's also ones that are using technology that is actually pretty old. It just hasn't been used. And so they're kind of pulling some of those technologies out of the dust bin in dust and those off and then kind of looking into how they can apply those as well. So it's really, it's really underexplored field because it's not something we've aggressively pursued, whereas for example, semiconductors, we're throwing our best at it. We're constantly iterating, growing that area very quickly, whereas nuclear, for example, the number of people going into nuclear engineering as a field in the western world is minimal. And so it's not been a big area of investment. But I'm optimistic. You're optimistic. Well, but you think energy is going to be one of the big topics of, I guess the next decade where we saw our energy from. And how tight it is, I guess to the global economy because if fuel prices are going up air travel, we get more expensive, I assume that's going to be linked to containers being more expensive. Actually, and I think I've read about this one. I also think I threw you tweet about this specific companies have stopped certain production just as energies too high. Isn't there like a Dutch steel? Plant that closed down. Yeah, that was aluminum. And so aluminum is a very electricity oriented metal to produce to refine that. And so it actually it's funny because that's often been compared to Bitcoin, where if a country has a ton of exces electricity, one of the things they can do with it is refined aluminum because it's so electricity intense..

"So one of the issues is recency bias. So investors of policymakers look back over the past, say, 5 years, ten years and say, energy is abundant. We have nothing to worry about. We don't have to keep investing in aggressively. But the problem is that by doing that, it becomes self fulfilling where we eventually have basically a commodity search where we've under invested in a lot of these things. And then if we still are kind of in the mindset where we're not going to invest in them, they prices can get pretty high and persist for a while. It might not be a straight line. Some of these parabolic spikes, especially what we're seeing in Europe, might cool off at some points. But I think that this is going to be a big story for the 2020s where we've not brought a lot of new energy supplies to market over the past 5 years. Okay, we'll come back to energy in a moment. I just really liked what you just said, the ball markets are the authors of bear markets and bear markets of the authors of bullmark. I like that just thinking about Bitcoin because one of the things I realized during this bull market is actually prefer the bear market in some ways. It's a lot easier to get work done. And actually, that's the period where you define how you're going to perform in the bull market in terms of what you've built as a business and whether you've had the ability to say stack yourself some sets for going through that market. That's super interesting. Okay, let's talk about energy then. You talk about investment in the energy market. I feel like having spent a lot of time with some bitcoiners and speaking to Ferris experts in the energy market, there seems to be have been a pullback with regards to nuclear and a push for green energy, but it feels like the green energy markets themselves are I don't even want to get into the are they actually green because of some of the waste and the production. But it feels like the nuclear is the most forward thinking technology that's the most evolved technology we have. But there's been a pullback. There's been a lack of investment in that. Is that what you're referring to? Well, I was supposed to refer to oil and gas. We've had a silver thing. We've had a similar issue with uranium. And so with oil and gas, that's more mainly about that we've not put we've it's kind of like we're trying to phase out the old technology before getting new technology in place that actually fulfills all the same needs. And so we don't have, for example, grid level electricity storage that's affordable, and that's kind of widespread. That would make solar and wind more competitive. So they can be used for a percentage of the grid, but once you start using them for more and more of the grid, you start to run into intermittency problems. You don't have that reliable base load. And so they need some sort of energy to bridge that gap. And so it could be coal or natural gas..

Bitcoin whether you it's there this them become a national security risk for certain countries and they would therefore want to load up on hash power to defend the network and i think it's the kind of thing i think jason lowrie. The space force guy came. came out publicly recently. Was saying that the future wars could be a hash wars which i find fascinating. I don't know if you've seen what he's been writing about. Yeah i've seen that come up in. Yeah basically once it becomes that large one is you have you have largest billions. Wanted to defend it. Any of countries wanted to defend it. y you have another country you know maybe try to attack it and that's why you want. Generally bitcoin achieve a certain level of dopson before the blocks upset he gets really small Because you wanted to achieve that critical mass where there's a lot of parties interested in in defending it. You can even conceive of like a science fiction war where you know we. We do a drone strike on someone else's hash rate because let's say china wants to attack it. We just do a drone strike on that little operation you know and and to say no. You can't do that. Because that's you're attacking our money And so you want basically wanted achieve. Certain level of escape velocity Before that blocks up that he gets too small and and like you. I mean i the thing that always astounded. Bitcoin is how well-designed it is raised. That's that's the classic thing people they get bitcoin. They say i'm new to bitcoin. I'm here to help it and change it. you know. make it better. And it's like it's remarkably. How well she designed it and and so we're watching the kind of living into toshi story and we're watching this play out People have obviously upgrade protocol over time very gradually with Whenever there's kind of you know almost unanimous consensus And it's it's just kind of amazing to watch over time. How many thinks he really nailed right. Because it's really rare for prototype to succeed I try and you know in some ways. It wasn't the first tribe because now he built on of joins. Yeah but even then when you if you if you can do a lot of research you have all these parts and you put them together. He made so many choices that you know twelve years later. We're still marveling at at the choices. The the combination you know the distribution pattern. He took All these kind of intricate details even the decision to put in a block size cap right things like that are you know. There's there's so many things it was like one or two things could be different and the project could have failed to take off for one reason or another as it was actually really remarkable. How many things he got right and this is the last thing we're kind of watching is okay. So we're willing a big enough for fees to to be workable for security in my view would be yes but it's something we have to monitor well and not just the i mean right. Give him credit. But i think we need to also give credit to a lot of the people of four on the front lines of bitcoin defended especially during the blocksize wars. I think what's happening with.

Inflation, Bitcoin, and Monetary Policy With Lyn Alden
"Lynn thank you so much for doing this. Hey thanks for having me absolutely. Let's maybe start with for those that don't know you maybe give a quick thirty seconds on just what you spend all day doing and then kind of your perspective with the research service that you've got which i think is absolutely fantastic and high suggest people go subscribe to but how do you kind of think of your day to day role and what you spend your time focused on mostly research so my background is initially an engineering and i went into engineering management kind of blended into finance and then now i i work fulltime. Doing investment research as independent analysts as most of my time is research books on individual companies as well as physically major sectors and overall what's happening in the macro space so inflation policy that sort of thing got it and so when you look where we are today it feels like the fed is the most important person in the market and kind of their monetary policy decisions. Some of the fiscal policy decisions that are being made as well. How do you kind of create a framework to evaluate what's happening and what the impact of that will be in the future. Is there a specific framework that you use. The closest thing after a framework is the concept of the long-term debt cycle popularized by radio. And so. that's the idea that you know we go through these five. Ten year business cycles With with rising debt. And you have a recession and then you you go into next cycle but if you string a bunch of those together we actually seen is that. Each cycle doesn't reset to the previous one in terms of debt or industry. Since what you get it's higher and higher debt as a percent of gdp over time and you get lower lower interest rates and that that that happens for decades until industry rates run into roughly zero or some cases mildly negative and so they run out of that policy. Ruin up to pull in other types of tools and so the last time we were in this type of virement in most countries was actually back in the nineteen forties. And so you know. We have a lot of analog to that time obviously with different technology at things like that. So that's that's actually my main probably a model framework But then you know more more tactically. I'm just kind of looking at. What are the bottlenecks in the system. policymakers to do something. and so. because we're at the end of a long term death cycle. We're in a very macro heavy environment. And some of things that people expect the past say thirty four years are behaving very differently this environment that that's how i approach

But it doesn't necessarily mean me going. There particularly that made travel goes to the northern hemisphere so we try peak laces that are either on the way or that are in the country itself that in another part of the country so that the travel time between training in events is a lot last but basically it's just way we can fit it in the cheapest rate because it's also funded and we can. I think we went to before finland we went to the united states of newburgh and had a little facility. They've now closed it. Unfortunately because it was the gulf golfing ranges willett taken it a move of us to use. It really went there to train for finland vs jey. It's just wherever we can at the time distant nation it can get well it's nice to get jonathan's there for the world b.'s. Every year he's there coaching england and they're usually finding latvia estonia to to play on their way up to on the way up to finland. Yes because the always play Is it the women's that he he usually helps with the women. He's the main coach for the junior men's team but he he helps. He helps with the women. I think there was a canadian lady was doing. It is and yet. She's great. she's nice. And i know john play. We usually do kirch gain. And i think i played. He looks he's got one here. I'm pretty sure. I think it's mostly gray now. He's not here. So i can say that. Yes to talk to me every week. So i'm going to take credit for a lot of that a lot of that gray hair. But since he's not here i'll say it's not blonde from the in. Yeah i seem more time. Yes the like we just try to get. One of the facilities we can cost is always issue so so funded in when we think about high performance we always tend to think about it. You know from the athlete perspective but with curling there so much that so much more that goes into it than that especially with the playing surface itself. So you know. How is australia able to develop networks. Not just athletes but texan coaches as well. I think it comes down to the interest of the individual at this point so in my perspective i had before my daughter's started conley. I had a good genius. And i was always keen to develop having the experience of being hot of cooling nationally. And i just felt like. I needed to give something back so i would always try and relate with started coaching at the junior teams. And i think he just have to interested in those avenues. That you have to almost sought source is so so to become a qualified courage. I actually works. We've laurie weeden a playout that i played with on the women's and we paid for instructed to come down from canada and we worked eventually work to use zealand and so we paid for her to calm down and and got trained as a little one. So you can't really go out and suic- things just so at the moment that's how it is willing federation. Since then have started doing programs and again they assisted me at the stages. Where i would go off and i'd be the annoying and say what can i. How can i get be Will happen. I get involved. And they eventually back. In two thousand ten. They had a little training camps. They said you could go to that and then train blue and as an assistant instructor so i did that. And that's where. I got a lot of my training. From as encouraged generally my slow to be and then asks cuisine was cheaper to fly someone in from canada than for you guys to fly out for a for for a coaching clinic Wow so they have. They started doing like clinics like at that world junior. Be when they know a lot of coaches are gonna be there. Yes that's right.

"They're very inclusive and try to encourage any To help assist in any way not necessarily just finding but options what they what it is really i think is one of the issues is the sustainability off the facility so if we were to get a dedicated ice rink ben wedeman have to make sure it could sustain a graciously the cost longtime and unseen. That is where we would We would struggle to have just on his. Ram we would have to visit from my perspective and the is doing it. Is that getting people in there all day to to pay the cost of the running of it. It's so expensive. You almost wanna be in partnership on the ice sports so you could do share the facility in the cost but still use it at at times than what we're giving at. Jonathan tells me that's kind of the scottish model. Is they have a ring in. They basically complete basically split the week in half and half half of the week. It's skating sports than they. Basically completely redo the ice into a us a usable curling rink and then for three days out of the week. It's curling yet. Sounds like that would work in australia even initially anyway. Increase the numbers I think counting is always that issue especially like in our will you.

All who support and sponsorships they can get so on. I believe it was. Mr is doing quite good job at at contacting a lot of people. His interest in developing that in context means language of ice sports to try and get some initiatives with the government. it's all in the planning stages it's again yet. It's it's a voluntary sir. Everyone's putting as much time as they can't get enough money. It's kind of like a multifaceted campaign. Really bit states wrong narrowing in programs yet. If you all if all of the states were able to get together in non really care about. Where would it be a lot. I mean i imagine you'd be able to get one built a lot quicker right but from what i've seen there's a little bit of regional a lot about a lot of regional rivalry there in australia as far as as like any country yes you do state rivalries but ultimately i think we all if someone was getting worse or state was getting close. Certainly beyond gordon and support where we could. That's for sure. Because one in australia is better than one in new zealand is one of new zealand. It's still a bit easier to get within the states so again whereas a another problem with will be put it suzanne being in the southern hemisphere your seasons with the opposite. You're currently going through a recording this in july. And it's currently. You're currently your winter in. Most of us aren't curling. So what unique challenges does it present you guys to have your season. Basically be the exact opposite of of most of the curling nations does hard for win win really getting ready to compete at world events So why in two thousand and thirteen. I was in there will mixed doubles and literally hadn't laid to three months off the plane and had one hour time and then started playing so it does make it really hard to sort of paint at the right time line so now that we got time if we have more money weekend gore and travel someway which means time outta work heim life just to go in training repeated peak at the right time so it doesn't make it difficult in so most of that is most of that going to new zealand. They keep the ice in at the dedicated rink they have during the during.

"Athletes actually to stay moving queensland train so that the trying to to make it more viable to stay harn Hitting sees so back to the question really is that we have Increased a membership by one group. So isthmus you don't have now opened up a ring we do have three rinks up rating And the membership. We've got about one hundred sixty active curlers so we have actually going to the rinks. We do have a who is carbon. Meaning being issue has prevented the growth of some status. Queensland's been pretty lucky. We've been enough to kill overview without modifying how we'd approach early. This mystery have been pretty good to sustain to run at the end. I think the main thing that i can see changing is that as far as queensland on membership really a young australian players now that most of gone are the traditional expects that it's the majority at a twenty and nineteen that sort of nicotine kind of cyber league. You the best of progress even for interest. What do you think that is is it. Because i mean i'm just thinking you're there in the winter. There's not a lot of recreational activities outside of australian rules. Football and rugby league in those are obviously big time contact sports but in terms of non contact sports in the winter is just not a lot of options in australia's that may be part of it or is it just the increased exposure from the olympics. You think it's movies version from the olympics. I think people giants like additional four trying to end ruin them the mic to try something different. That thing might be able to play organ vote in more and have more options of progressing through through the different levels. They see it as a good way to. Maybe one day represented australia. And that's the way it's a great Option will known. They see it like that anyway. I think it gives them just a different. Tom activity to do in the winter. Relevant something obviously busy cool on over time in in a like contact way lists contact probably beneficial. You forty two in it allows you to be a little more social. I mean that's my favorite. I don't know about you. But that's my favorite aspect of the game is the social aspect. I was such a big stone social aspect until i had been going to seasons on many really teaches because he is on wednesday night really lanes and that in were out and they don't open the body. I know it's different other states. Probably but unfortunately. I think that's one of the things that isn't such a good thing that we don't have that social esl so we always encourage them to go to any competitions to see exactly what would be what would be a traditional venue said it so in terms of in terms of bonds feels like. Are you guys like even show in wreck bonds spills. Are you guys able to not. I mean are you guys just unable to have very many or is it where you've gotta go across the tasman to the to the dedicated rink there in new zealand. Yes we always encourage going over to the trans tasman which is like At boston between new zealand australia. 'cause that's way you really see. What a dedicated his life. But i actually have myself once created a spills raising money. Virginia genius funding and and people from victoria schema. This was probably ten easier now and it worked really well and it was a lotta fun. The anything is that we're working around a time schedules. That suit the money spinner. Which is the public citians We'd have suga games but the social aspect was definitely was a real hit and we'd love to have more them. It's just finding the cost and the the variability of time a very reluctance to Time from the The normal schedules. Which he he had functioning. I guess so. I know he has done at once. That was pretty good. It was for us all the best times. Go to knock you players so we get on. Get on at usually eight to ten. Pm usually on a thursday night but where are our group usually about half of them will stick around and hang out and chat for thirty minutes. But it i mean. I've been places where the social aspect is obviously a lot better in obviously places where they have dedicated is but we do our best with with what we have. That's for sure so. Is that kind of the big thing. That's keeping you guys from. From growing the sport is in. Australia is the fact that the the nearest dedicated facility is is in new zealand. Yes i think so. I think that a big on that they don't get the social aspect as much victoria. The we've got a bar and they do have a wonderful social membership and sustains a little bit up acting out straight. I'm not sure what they've got Sponsorship but the here definitely. I think that's where we find that members stay for awhile a few years and then it just came to wave so we sustain them as much as if we have that social on taxes on. See i do anything could do in i know. They recently lost their their facility. But how important would it be for the country for new south wales to to be able to find ice again because i mean that's a big big population center. That right now doesn't have the sport is that right. I think if we could encourage some sort of ice facility for them that they can use or you know be pot off it would have to organize simony on it would be really do and i know that working towards that even now this people going in meeting of a Rinks in china where account different ways they can. You know being -cluded i know they have stolen so ready to. They sneak the facilities to sort of work with them. It would definitely be encouraged and it would be very helpful to increase membership. It's such a big population you'd have to pick up people give any idea. How many ice rinks there are total in australia. I know you said there's two in brisbane. Probably title ten maybe fifteen. They do a lot of pop. Sort of ice rinks if you like. So set the sunshine coast. Which is our main. they have civility. Which is rolling skating rink. And i think that changing to during the summer holidays I stating same with the asaba. They shorter facilities. Because we have those may be holding on spill that they're shorter wrinkle small facility so they don't have the length that we need to have a fooling nailing sheet so So we do a little pops in australia in. I imagined the expense with getting a rink built their. You know. ice chillers themselves aren't cheap but then to get one to australia. I imagine just increases the expense of getting chiller.

"If you will yet in talking to our episode we did with herald. Woods from team nigeria. He talked about doing a floor. Curling clinic When he went to Nigeria to help out with that and said it had much higher attendance than he thought it would. so it appears that there's some enthusiasm for floor. Curling in nigeria already. Kenya believe is already recognized as a federation by the w cf so really cool that you have these additional nations that have signed up for the floor curling championship and it may be a way to get get more. Nations joined the wc f- to a moving onto europe where we do have some good news. We talked about at our last episode that the world mixed was cancelled partially due to kind of fixture congestion as it were among wcs events in the basically the in the ensuing transaction was the day announced debt the european seed championship is on and it will be the third weekend in september the actual dates will depend on the total number of injuries. But good to see the european seized back on it was obviously not played last season. Kinda different because the season is usually held at the end of the season in april or may In this little time it'll be in in september so good to see that the european see is back on because it's it's a big event for some of these developing oreo nations kind of their that are growing rapidly in europe. I mean i think it also matters. Do these i guess not right. So if you're in the pool. I don't even understand what a qualifications going anymore. But the top. The top tool get to play in the b.'s will be in november. Yeah so any part of the rules that wc f- in theory any nation supposed to be able to qualify for world championship each season. But at that made me and you start seeing work your way up every nation supposed to have a shot so they've obviously decided to prioritize that event over the mixed as we said last time. I hope this doesn't mean the end of the mixed. The world seniors. I think these events matter a lot to For the growth and development of the game. But it's good to see these other events coming back on the calendar in the final bit of news that you actually passed along to me is bridge. Curling announced their teams. Basically they're funded athletes for the upcoming twenty twenty one. Twenty two season in really. The big news here is there isn't really a named team muirhead yet which is important because they will have to go through the olympic qualification event to qualify for beijing. But there's a list of. I believe ten athletes here out of which they will select the team that will go to the olympic qualifier in. You gotta think that you've muirhead is going to skip that team. But basically combined team aitken and team muirhead that existed last year. They're kind of combined in this podium and potential podium squad out of which they will select a team to send the queuing. Yeah so. They've laid of people i guess part of it's the oh qe I don't really know exactly what's happening. But it is interesting that they've provided a list this year where normally they kind of outlined the squad so what that probably means is. There's going to be a lot of time. Spent this summer kind of at the national curling academy in sterling working on different team team lineups in team dynamics and trying to sort out with lineups are who will get to go to that event all right so we will look for more news out of british curling as it pertains to the team that they are sending to. The women's qualifier aren't jonathan. Let's get on to our interview that we had with lynn gill. She is currently the secretary for the australian curling federation. She's also a native ozzy and we specifically wanted to talk to her because of that. Obviously there's a lot of canadian. Ex-pats had are in the australian curling federation who curly recreationally or in the high performance aspect. We wanted to talk to someone who found the sport Despite being a native ozzy so she gets into that she gets into kind of her first attempts to start curling and which led to the second attempts which actually led to her getting on the ice and getting a club formed in brisbane but she tells us the unique challenges that they face as they work to get. The first dedicated rink built in australia. And the the challenges they face from having a a curling season that is basically the exact opposite of all the other curling nations so Really interesting to talk to her own incident but my parents decided to move to the country which to cower which is a small country town rows with of sydney way we were raised on fox and and sort of had the country live.

Live to talk about how they've been building resilience into their businesses this year. And today my conversationalist jianlin mop. Ceo and co founder of zola. Zola is a one stop shop for couples. Planning a wedding from creating a wedding website. Finding local vendors making registry even creating a photo album of the big day with the wedding industry completely hammered by the pandemic last year solely focused on releasing new products and features for couples like a homegoods marketplace and even hosting virtual weddings on its platform. We aimed couples from that first aid. Get engaged through their entire wedding planning journey into their festivals of newlywed life with the tools and technology that we build to help them plan dream and bring to life bear fantasy wedding so basically you go on the website and you can do everything like from finding the person to do your flowers to a you to the caterer to the registry to the invitations. Everything yes wedding website. you'll save the dates and then you'll album of you're beautiful photos with photographer that you found on seoul ios chicken out the website earlier today. It's super cool. How did it. How did it start had it. I know it's you start in twenty thirteen And i think at the time you were working at guilt which is a the gilt groupe g. I l t nut gui. Tell me how how this idea came about well. I always dreamed about starting my own company. One day but i had never felt ready until really working for many years in product management which is really working alongside designers and engineers to build digital websites and mobile apps and so had gone that experience and in twenty thirteen That just happened to be all. My friends got married at exactly the same time. Everyone has that year where you're going to a wedding. Every weekend spending a lot of money. I was buying gifts from my friends. Women registries and found that the experience that i was going through their registered was just one of the worst shopping experiences i had ever seen. I was talking to nobu. Who is my co-founder zola. About how painful was and he's married and he was complaining about it from the couple's perspective. It's just terrible and we looked at each other and we said you know we've been working together to build great products when it we attacked this assets. We think we can do a much better job. And and that was how zola was born. I'm wondering you know. I mean this is twenty thirteen so this is still you know. The the ancient early days of of of web two point zero which is unbelievable Did you have initially when you went to people. I know a little bit your backstory. You grew up in australia. And then you came to the us business school and you had a bunch of Jobs in sort of adjacent kind of industries right. You worked at guilt and another an and also worked at another who. You're actually growing up in australia. It's a very remote country in that is literally on the the side of the world. And i had always can read about what what is happening in the world. And what is happening in the tech revolution that we all living through right now and i felt very removed from the action. So i moved to the us to really be a part of this Tech revolution underway and my dream was always to be like an entrepreneur. Like jerry yang. Who found yata. I had a picture of him on my wall. And because i'd never known really anyone else who worked in tech apart from the people that i read about in magazines you may dream actually came true in that i moved to the us. After business school. I was able to get a job at yahoo. Which jerry founded. And i think one of the best days there was when i walked past him in the hallway. Wow that as a result of working that. I got to learn from great product leaders. Who with some of the best in silicon valley. Who really told me. How do you think about creating a product that customers love and that they want to share with all their friends when you came up with the idea for for what is now zola and you started to talk to people about it. I have to imagine that some people said oh this industry saturated they're already. There's you know the not. There's a bunch of other sites that you know. There's a bunch of other people doing this. You don't want get into that business. That is exactly. I think there was a lot of from many places and for many investors. Who said like what you said. It's not possible to build a big business in weddings. Because there hasn't been one yet all. Do people really spend that much on weddings. All it's it's highly fragmented as an industry so then must be a reason for that and that sounded crazy to me. Because i knew how much my friends were spending tons of time and money i think weddings is one of the only times in your life where you spend on average in this country thirty thousand dollars on one day because we want to create a special memory inexperienced for yourself and your friends and so i knew it was a lot of business opportunity. It was an undeserved need. That was a passionate customer base and just because investors didn't feel personally connected to the pain point did it mean it to thin exist

Who's going to protect you from making a bad purchase from your smart speaker from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. When we talk about the internet of things and a houseful of smart, speakers and fridges and TV's we focus a lot on privacy. But these devices are also for shopping like in this Amazon, add Alexa. What are your deal? I have several exclusive deals including Linda chocolate deluxe gift box. Would you like to buy it? Yes, that means commerce is coming inside the house kind of like an army of door to door, salesmen, offering encyclopedias or vacuum cleaners and actually some experts say that's a good model for how to regulate a future filled with smart shopping and potentially dumb decisions law. Professor Ryan Kahlo has studied digital market manipulation. He says back in the nineteen seventies. The Federal Trade Commission created new rules to deal with the door to door situation. The idea was a kind of nineteen fifties notion that women were at home. Tending to the house in their curlers. And all of a sudden, some sweet talking salesperson would come to the door and sell them a bunch of encyclopedias. A special introductory offer. Madame Calas says the FTC decided that when you're at home, you deserve more protections than when you're actively going to a store and seeking out commerce the commission decided that if you're going to be sewing stuff to people door to door you had to follow certain rules. You had to have certain disclosures. You had to have a cooling off period, meaning a window when you can cancel an order and in nineteen seventy eight the supreme court upheld restrictions on soliciting clients in person or in their homes. Here's Justice Lewis Powell in an opinion announcement the state has a strong interest in protecting the public from the aspects of solicitation that actually involve fraud undue influence, overreaching and other phones vexatious conduct. Okay. But what about when that potentially vexatious conduct comes from a smart speaker like say, Google, okay? Google talked to WalMart at or. Juice to my cart. Hi lyn. I can get you Tropicana, orange juice for five dollars and eighteen cents. Ryan Kahlo says the salesman now are inside the house were interacting with technology that we bring into our houses as though we were interacting inter personally, we have this new world in which corporations can reach us anytime and practically anywhere, and yet we're not even talking about whether the rule should be different. The FTC has sued some companies, including the smart TV maker vizo under a decades old statute around unfair and deceptive practices, but the agency told us it needs more power many show Matale is an associate director at the FTC's division of privacy and identity protection under our general ability to prohibit unfair deceptive practices. We do not have rulemaking authority. So we have recommended that congress pass a specific law on general privacy, and then gives us rulemaking authority to establish rules. That more clearly identify what practices are unlawful so far a few states like California and Oregon have passed laws that govern security around the internet of things but commerce protections. Haven't yet been part of the conversation. And now for some related links pity the poor FTC in some ways, the agency only has forty people working fulltime on privacy and data security issues.
