A highlight from Upstream Works transforms United Airlines passenger, agent CX and EX, Podcast
"This is Doug Green and I'm the publisher of Telecom Reseller and I'm very pleased to have with us today Rob McDougall who is the CEO of Upstream Works. Rob, thank you for joining us today. Hey, great to be here, Doug. Good to talk with you again. Well, this is really exciting. I've been enjoying talking with you just before we started our podcast about what's going on in the AR market. And you know, what's exciting to me is we've been doing a series of podcasts the last few weeks where folks have been coming forward and talking about how they've made AI a practical tool for a company or for an organization or for maybe an entire industry. So we're going to be talking about an exciting story today about how Upstream Works has changed United Airlines and also about the idea of operationalizing AI. So we're going to be talking about those topics in a second, but for people that don't know Rob Upstream Works well or maybe know a little bit about you guys, what is Upstream Works? Upstream Works is a software application company. We focus on the agent experience and we provide an agent desktop application that's designed to run either on premise or in cloud so that your infrastructure doesn't matter. Our goal is to make sure that your agents have a consistent interface that they can work with across platforms, across applications, across channels. And these days we've been using the term EX. So what you're doing, it feeds right into that employee experience. Absolutely. We call it AX because we're focused on agents, but that's what it's all about. A happy agent is going to give a better service. We believe that that smile on the agent's face comes across the phone. It's a tough job. It's a tough market. You know, you can't find enough people to do that job today, so you want to keep those employees happy and they're the face of your company to the world. So with that in mind, you have actually taken AI and you're doing something called operationalizing AI. Sorry, that didn't come out so smoothly. So what is operationalizing AI? First, it's a tough word to say. I will give you that. Look at it this way. If I was to ask you, Doug, to go to my office, go to my computer, log in and add yourself into my CRM system or billing system, you wouldn't know what you had to do. You understand my ask, but you don't know where my office is. You don't know how to get into my computer. You don't know what my CRM or HR systems are. You don't know how they work. AI is the same thing. Even with the new generative AI model, is it really good at understanding? I know what the guy's asking, but I don't know how to do it. Operationalizing AI means doing that connectivity between what the AI can do and making it do something actually for your business. So integrating it into your backend systems, providing an interface that an agent can use to view things easily, using it to provide other business value like routing or translations, but making it actually work properly in your complex in silo the contact center. So this is really interesting because what you're telling me is it simplifies things. Well, tremendously. What we saw back in the early days of chat and email is a lot of people would put in chat and email, but they were discreet channels. They didn't integrate with the contact center. It was a bad experience for customers. You had to have specialized agents who got different training because the desktop interfaces were different. The tools were different. Omnichannel has now taken us into a realm where an agent can deal with sort of one set of tools across the different channels, but then you start throwing AI into the mix and it comes up in a different place. So you put in AI and it's got its own interface. So I need special agents to do something over here, or it doesn't actually integrate with the other tools that I have in the contact center. So I've got to make all that stuff work together. And this is what Upstreamworks has been doing for 23 years is being the spider in the middle of the web and taking the applications that are important for your business and help you make those work for the business and for the agents to make their life easier. So it's interesting that you're using a new thing to basically follow your brand story, which has what you're describing sounds like what Upstream is all about. Absolutely. We focus on enterprise contact centers. We don't go for the small contact center. And the reason we focus there is because large enterprises, when they deal with products, what they want is something that's shrink wrapped in out of the box, like Word, and they just put in the disk and it all works, but it's got to work exactly the way they work. And that doesn't exist. So what we have always done is we built a product that is designed to provide all the features out of the box, but have all the configurability and integratability such that I can integrate it into the workflows that the company has and make those work properly in an enterprise environment. And AI is no different. You could look at a manufacturer who's going to say, oh, we'll put in our product and here's our AI. And the company says, well, that's nice, but we use this other AI. That's where Upstream works comes in. And they may use Amazon AI for translations, and they may use Google AI to search their knowledge base, and they use Watson to look up their medical information. They may have different AI applications. Our goal is to make them all work and make it seamless to the agent. So the agent doesn't know there's different AIs happening. It's just there's stuff that shows up and stuff happens. And I'd love to hear a little bit about your product line and offerings right now, but maybe you could tell me that in the context of where you're offering this operationalizing AI service. Well, it comes as an actual part of our product, right? It's right there. It's right there. So one of the components is a desktop component called Virtual Agent Portal. And we spent a lot of time kind of working through what to name this, because we didn't want people to start thinking we're providing AI to them, because we're not an AI provider. But what Virtual Agent Portal allows you to do, it's a kind of an open placeholder, so that if I need to interact between an agent and an AI on the desktop, it can go into Virtual Agent Portal. And I can do things like I can try Amazon, or I could switch it out for Google, because maybe I get a better price. The agent doesn't see the difference. I don't need to retrain them. I'm using a certain AI, and I put in a different training model, and I want to do some A -B testing to see which one's giving me better results. The agent won't see the difference. Virtual Agent Portal handles all that in the background and feeds the information back to management to say, okay, yeah, the new changes are working, so we're going to now use that AI. But it's all about making it transparent to the agent, so they're focused on the customer and my understanding is that with all this, you guys have now developed and are operating with a very big customer. Yeah, somebody we've been having a lot of fun with over the summer is United Airlines. So they're a big Cisco shop. They've got Cisco UCCE. They've got Cisco Webex. And they had this concept that they called Agent on Demand. And what they wanted to be able to do was to provide airline -side services to customers remotely. And with Webex and the Cisco Contact Center product, those things didn't work together. So Cisco brought in Upstream Works, and so we're kind of the glue between all this. So now what happens at United Airlines is, and if you're traveling and you're at United, look around because you're going to see QR codes all over the place. You can shoot the QR code with your phone, and you will get hooked up with a live video call with the United Gate agent. So it's for doing airline -side things. So can't buy my baggage. I got to go change my flight. I want to change my seat. You know, all the stuff that you could go up to the gate to do, there's a big lineup, or you're in the United Club having a drink and you want to do this, you can now do this on your phone remotely. From a customer experience point of view, it's an awesome thing. But what's even better about it is think about gate agents. These are the people who are standing at the gate and they're doing stuff and then you board your flight and then they go back in the back room and they sit around until their next flight. Well, now what they do is they go back in the back room and United has little, I'll call them informal contact centers in every airport. Gate agents leave their post, they go back and they get on the phone and they start dealing with other customers from all over the world. So from United's point of view, they're now getting much better utilization of their staff and they're assisting people at any airport where there's United Airlines. And from the customer's point of view, they just know that, hey, I want to change my seat and I can do it on my phone and talk to a person to do it. So it's a win for the customers and it's an absolute win for United as well because now, you know, I don't have to line up to do this stuff and I can better utilize my agents. It just occurred to me that it's liberating for both sides of that equation. In other words, as you were mentioning from the customer point of view, now I don't have to stand even, you know, it was used to be a problem. I have to find the right line to stand in. That is, you know, we've all had that experience. I can just click on one of these wherever I am in the airport and get help. Yeah, absolutely. You hit the QR code and it's going to ask for your flight number. So you put your flight number in and your passenger name, and then you're going to get to the right person to talk about the right stuff. It doesn't matter what line you're going to get in because it's skills routed to the right person. Wow. And that also means that remote, to your point, remote agents, whether they're at an informal contact center, a little mini one in the back office there behind the gate, or maybe just as in a more, it may be out of a home even, right there, there is help now, you know, late at night, maybe there's no one at the little airport in a smaller center, which United does fly in and out of, maybe you're just talking to someone somewhere else. That smaller center, you could talk to an agent at home, but you could also be talking to an agent who's on shift at O 'Hare in between flights. Right. So that's really, that really is an amazing step forward. And it really, it leverages all the technologies already in place. Yeah. And then, and then they went further because they said, you know what we, cause you can, you can escalate between voice video and chat on the application. You don't have to do video call. You can also just chat with the agent as well. But they've also got translations. So they're using, I believe it's Amazon for doing, there's Google, sorry, they're using Google to do translations, but now I can go on, I can click that QR code, say I'm Spanish. I can type in in Spanish, what the agent sees is coming up in English and they answer in English and the person gets it back in Spanish. And this is a great use of generative AI because that's, I will say a year ago, when you showed translations in a demo, it was anyone spoke the language went, yeah, that doesn't really work. The language was stilted generative AI has, has changed the game on translations because generative AI can translate really well. So that's a very excellent use case for it. This is very exciting because it sort of opens up so many doors that, you know, the, the agent might be in Berlin, the, the, the other, the passenger might be in Mexico city and they're able to talk to each other in their own languages. Yep. And you can do it across industry as well. Think about, you know, you as a person, you go to a drug store and you need to consult with a doctor and they've got a nurse practitioner there who can triage. And then click a QR code and get a video conference going with a doctor who may be at a central site. Now I'm sitting, having a conversation with a medical professional via video that's been queued up. And, you know, on the doctor's side, he's between patients, he logs onto the system and he just starts taking some calls and he can deal with patients. And now I don't have to have doctors everywhere. I can centralize them and I put nurse practitioners around. So there's a lot of healthcare uses for the same type of application. Hey Rob, let's stay with that a second, but in both cases, because, um, do you, do you, I'm going to use maybe the wrong term, but is there a continuity on each case? In other words, let's say, um, I opened up a conversation as a United customer or as a, as a patient and it's concluded, but now I have the same problem maybe four hours later. Will the next person who helps me know about my last conversation? Well, we captured the interaction history of every interaction that happens. So the answer, the quick answer is yes. Um, as a, as an agent or a doctor or a gate agent, uh, you can go back and review the previous recording, um, or the transcript of what's going on, or again, another great use of generative AI. You could also get a summary delivered back to you of what had gone on on that previous call, but that whole contact history is tracked. So every single time Doug Green contacts, they're going to be able to say Doug Green always contacts us and says, we screwed his seat up. He does this every single flight. So maybe he's just pulling our leg. So, you know, it works both ways. And that's really amazing because that's the type of information, you know, old school that, you know, there would be someone around who knew some other people and would say, yeah, look at Doug. And this is, he does that all the time. Here's how to handle it. Now we're able to do this on a, on a, and that must make agent life or the doctor life, whoever's receiving the contact a little bit easier, right? They've, they've got that contextual and historical information. Yeah. We've always believed, I was talking about the elephant never forgets. And I've always believed that as a person contacting a business, there are certain things that I know the business should know those things as well. Most importantly, I know that I called last Thursday about the same thing. The business should know that the agent who picks up my call, this is, you know, this is video or just a voice call, but the agent should know that as well. And that's the important part of interaction history. So regardless of the channel you come in on, the agent has access to that information and they can see what that context is. Cause that's all important to them providing you good service. Rob, you know, I know it's early days and, and, but you know, this was an historic summer for travel. So United you've already flown, if you will, through a challenging time. What's the reaction, what's United telling you and what are customers saying what's happening? Uh, United loves it. Um, all of the airlines are aware of it and are looking and, and want to understand how they've done it. Um, we're getting a lot of inbound, uh, requests coming in from basically all the major airline carriers from very senior people. Um, I think over the Labor Day weekend, it was something like, I don't know, 2 .3 or 2 .8 million passengers went through Chicago O 'Hare airport, uh, and NBC news and Chicago did a section on United and all the travelers and right in the middle of it is, and they have this agent on demand application and they show here's a phone talking to an agent. That's the upstream application right there, which was very cool. So Rob, you know, uh, with this, this, uh, work you're doing with United, I understand they turned to you because they were able to find you as a reliable source for this. So original the agent on demand idea, uh, came from United. Um, and they, they did a proof of concept to say, okay, it kind of works, but it wasn't robust enough for sort of the enterprise you will. Um, and they turned to Cisco who was sort of their trusted communications provider and said, can you do this? And Cisco looked into it and they came back and said, no, we can't get all the bits and pieces, but we can't make them work together. And then somebody inside Cisco who knew upstream, wasn't talk to upstream. And so Cisco came to us and we said, yeah, of course we can do that. So it went back to United said, okay, we have a solution. Um, and we put that into United and they'd been extremely happy with the stability and how well it works. So everything's great. And since then it's, I don't, I mean, maybe it's early to say this, it sounds like it's on its way to becoming an industry standard. Uh, we're getting a ton of inbound interest. People are coming up and saying, you know, we, we, we've heard about the agent on demand. We want to know how it works and how you do it. And, and now we find out that upstream works is kind of the key enabler here. So, yeah, we're getting a lot of inbound demand on it, which is great. Well, uh, I wanted to, uh, conclude our podcast with just about how we can get a hold of products from upstream works. I understand that you're a channel oriented company. So do you have a channel pro program? We have a channel program. Uh, we do not sell directly at all. Uh, we have distribution channels, uh, throughout, uh, Canada, the U S and Europe. Um, we're available, um, on the Amazon platform, we're available on the Cisco platforms. Um, and we are expanding our market. So if there's, you know, if you're one of our resellers, uh, you know, you, you can, you can get at this. Um, if you're new to us and you want to talk with us, you've got some opportunities you want to discuss. Uh, we do have a channel program. We're really easy to deal with. Um, basically we can sign you up and then we'll do all the heavy lifting and until such time as you want to take on as much of the sales training and implementation training as you want to based on your business needs. Sounds like a great way for a channel partner right now or an MSP to win with AI. Absolutely. Absolutely. Well, this is an exciting, ongoing story, Rob. I really hope that we get to do an additional podcast, maybe just about the United application, if you will, or, or that the, what you're doing there and in healthcare and maybe some other industries, learn some more news and do some stuff in the future. But for now, I want to thank you for joining us. Where can we learn more about upstream works? www .upstreamworks .com. Well, I hope everyone takes a visit and takes a second look, but for now, thanks very much for joining me today. Thank you, Doug. It's been really fun.

A highlight from GENC: Driving Social Impact Through Emerging Technologies | A Conversation with Laurie Keith, VP of The Ad Council
"To part be of this. Gen C is the generation of the new Internet. In Gen C, the C stands for crypto, but it also stands for creators, the connected consumer, and collectibles, both digital and physical with on -chain provenance. It stands for culture and characters, the ones we play in games and the companion ones that AI is building alongside us. It stands for community and digital citizenship, and the new set of transparent and trustless tools being built to the people who were raised on a different philosophy on how they look at money, how they look at identity, how they look at privacy, and how they look at the hybrid, digital, and physical spaces being built all around us. And finally, how they reimagine their relationships with the communities and companies they interact with. We focus on how brands, large and small, are building for these audiences. Welcome to Gen C. Avery, we are back. Last week we took off because of Fashion Week and scheduling. So happy to see you. I never like a week where I don't get to see you. So how are things? Things are great. It is back to school season, full in the swing. Summer's over. Labor Day's happened. Everything's happening all at once, as it always does towards the end of the year. You know, it's like a sprint between now and the holidays. How about for you? Yeah, you guys must be so busy, I'm sure. Yeah, it's pretty crazy. Got some travel coming up. As we all know, there's way too many conferences in crypto, and we seem to get involved in a lot of them, and some of them are amazing and great partners. But they're all over the world. Concord doesn't exist anymore. We've got to find ways to travel faster. My new thing is really wondering where the sub -four hour flight anywhere in the world is. Google Flights, man, can tell you anything. I love that. But I agree, the next emerging technology we need is teleportation. That would be very beneficial. We'll invest. So I know you were at the Roblox developer conference, was it, last week? RDC, is that what it stands for, by the way? It is. RDC, Roblox developer conference. Okay, cool. So I know you were there last week, and I want to hear your thoughts on it, but I also want to hear your thoughts on a story that I was reading at the beginning of the week, which I think came out of RDC, which was that the Roblox CEO was predicting that people are going to meet and start dating all because of Roblox, in addition to many other trends. Did you see any of these developers dating at the conference? I did. So this was my first RDC, and I went because I was interested to hear from the people who are really building and creating in this space. And as part of my job, I love to sit down with the people who are actually making this stuff happen, hear their stories, hear how they got interested in this, how their businesses work. And that was my sole objective at RDC. It wasn't like I was speaking, I was really just there to listen and learn. And I met with maybe 25 different game developers, teams, creators, influencers in the space, and asked them what motivates them to build on Roblox, how their virtual economies work, how they build their following, how they engage their community. And I learned a bunch of things. A couple of things that really stood out to me, though, is Roblox has a thriving creator economy. A lot of the folks that I was meeting with are coming from all across the world, and they're building their business on creating with their communities, building whether it's a game or an experience. And there were a number of different sort of Roblox creator economy initiatives that the team talked about rolling out between subscriptions and the expansion of their limited products, and also expansion of their communications products, which kind of ties into what you're talking about with dating. A big takeaway for me is also Roblox is looking to age up both as younger sort of gamers get older and stay on the platform longer and attracting an older crowd. Little known fact that I think nearly 40 % of Roblox users are 17 -plus, and Roblox will soon be rolling out features that verify your age and then enable things like dating experiences. So expect the We Met On Roblox coming up, and that's not too surprising. I did meet one couple who had met on Roblox there, but I've also met people who met on vFriends Discord and actually, fun fact, had the first ever known vFriends baby, this couple who met through vFriends and actually got married and had a baby, which is so nice. So people meet in these virtual online spaces like more and more, and Roblox is leaning into that and leaning into enabling that level of communication. So it might be surprising to some who think Roblox is just for kids and for this younger gen alpha audience, but the reality is 17 -plus folks are on Roblox, they're spending two hours a day, and of course they end up meeting people and falling in love as people do. So I, you know, had a ton of key takeaways, but those are two that really stood out to me. Creator economy is super real on Roblox, and it's not just for kids. And correct me if I'm wrong, they look at the creator economy not just being designers, but it's also game developers, it's people who are designing digital assets, both physical and virtual. I thought that was really interesting that one of the predictions was that there are going to be creators who actually sell more physical objects on Roblox, in essence like a Spotify that you still will get shipped to your house. It's bigger than I think we think for those of us who are not on day in and day out. I also sort of look at it a little bit, and again, correct me if this analogy is wrong, but I think about all the businesses that were built on top of Salesforce. Salesforce took away a lot of things that people were having barriers with in connecting with their customers, and Roblox, in essence, are building a tool set to connect with customers that are just connecting with them virtually, but that doesn't mean you can't have a real relationship with them. I think that's exactly right, and I think that we're also going to see an increasing number of brands and creators developing these digital -first products and experiences that might not need to have a physical twin. Right now, I still think we're in this place because our mindset is like, oh, there has to be a physical link, but does there have to be a physical link? I think that's something that we'll increasingly see sort of dividing. The thing that I still keep thinking about, which I don't think there's an answer, and there may not ever be an answer, but real life is still where we exist every day, Right. And I know that was a very deep, profound statement I just said. Really insightful.
Fresh update on "labor day" discussed on Bloomberg Businessweek
"The current environment that we've been living through has certainly created a very challenging dynamic overall, and of course the banking turmoil in spring, the and of course now some of the dynamics playing out of Washington, but I would say that out of those dynamics has come one of the most attractive opportunities that I've certainly seen in my career in direct lending, in private credit. So I guess in that sense, I never wanted to wish for dysfunction and uncertainty, but I will say that in many respects, private credit and direct lending, unlike the GFC, Carol, has been here, if you will, to kind of come to the rescue a bit by providing the financing capital and lending capital and ultimately growth capital to the companies that need that capital have and performed well through the current environment. So in that sense, we're super We're busy and hoping that if things settle down a bit, we were certainly hoping for that post -Labor Day that we'd get even busier. Well, interesting that you talk about private credit like this because Bank of America actually put out a note, they said that private debt defaults are going to reach 5 % by early because 2024 a lot of deals, one third of deals come due in the next two and a years. half Is that bad for private credit though? Well, first of all, I'm not sure I agree with those numbers. The reality is that if you look at our portfolio or the portfolio of any number of what are arguably high quality, top tier private credit managers, some of which are publicly traded, what I think you would see is generally portfolios have held up extremely well. So I think that the prediction that default rates would reach 5 % is not supported by what we're seeing today. Now that doesn't mean that it won't play out, but I would say that just because there's a maturity wall doesn't necessarily mean that those companies are going to ultimately default. I think what you may very well see, and you're already seeing it today, is that a lot of those companies are going back to their lenders and say, look, this is a good business, strong it has cash flow, it's performed well, and we need to extend. And frankly, the reality is that to the extent that the businesses have performed, the odds are very good that they can work something out with their lenders and extend the maturity. So I wouldn't necessarily equate maturities to defaults, because as a direct lender, as a private credit lender, we may have the ability to down sit with the company, and if it's private equity -owned, with private equity -owned. We all are. And work out the dynamics if, in fact, those need to be done. it's Now, a totally different story if the company is performing poorly or underperforming or is not able to make its payments, but I would not attribute just maturity to necessarily creating creating that problem. And certainly we are not seeing evidence of that today. So, you know, it'll be interesting to see how that plays out. Ken, right, defaults can tell one story, and you're saying you're not necessarily seeing that. But in terms of rewriting are you providing terms and working with your borrowers? Are you doing a lot more of that in this environment? Frankly, not right now. I would tell you that our portfolio today, so we have investments in over 500 US mid -market companies in areas like healthcare and software and business services. These are all backed or owned by private equity investment firms, which is largely the case for many of our peers. And I think, you know, I've certainly had an opportunity to talk to my peers here in British Economic Forum. A number of them are here. We trade notes. And I can tell you that about portfolios our overall are holding up quite well. So, you know, our quote unquote workout person is frankly not that busy, surprisingly, I think, to some. And our New Deal people, you know, the folks that are underwriting new transactions, are actually quite busy. In fact, we had a very strong, we had a record quarter for a third quarter last quarter. And, you know, to the extent that we do get some clarity regarding the dynamics in and around interest rates and maybe a bit more certainty regarding potential increases in interest rates and inflation, you know, I we think could we very well find ourselves in a relatively soft landing. And if we do, you know, I think we'll and see M A activity and transaction activity pick up, right? Because, I mean, it's really, you know, the market's really waiting for some stability regarding rates. So I'm not, you know, I would say in what obviously to pay in has the markets. been a tough day in I would say what you'll hear from me is that, you know, there's there's a lot of liquidity in private credit. Institutional investors are allocating significantly to the space. Yields obviously conditions are quite attractive right now. And we're busy, you know, so, You know, I hate to be the positive story here, but I will say, you know, we're busy and institutions are out here. Well, Roman Bostic just said, Carol, you're the optimist always and all of this stuff. I do see the glass half full. But I want to make sure I'm eyes wide open. So I do wonder where you are seeing any cracks, because I do wonder in this higher rate environment and we are going to be here for longer. There's gone. There's going to be some problems. We know that. Absolutely. And I would say that, you know, in many respects, this is the kind of period where, you know, The lenders that maybe were a bit more aggressive and looked really good, you know, and getting higher returns, but maybe taking on more risk. I think those dynamics are coming home Bruce, to roost. but I would say overall, yes. And I would say that where we see cracks, if you will, and they're, you know, certainly in our portfolio, there are not many, where but we see them, they're very episodic and they're not tied to a broad, you know, pullback in economic conditions. So, for example, you know, a deal that was done a year ago where, you know, they embarked upon an acquisition strategy and those acquisitions did not play out as expected, or where there was a fundamental premise regarding reimbursement healthcare rates and some shifts in the way that they oriented the business that maybe didn't out play as well. So, there are certainly situations that have not gone well as planned, but not a fundamental pullback of the type that we would have seen, for example, GFC in the in any way, shape, or form. So Can – I ask one last question? Because we're running time. out of I wish – you know when I speak with you, I always want like an hour. Thirty seconds quick, because we keep talking about Treasury levels, pick your duration back to levels of 2007, 2008. Anything today reminds you of the great financial crisis? Very quickly, like 30 seconds. Yeah, so I would say the pullback in the syndicated loan markets in many respects is a carbon copy in that sense, right? CLO markets go dormant. Liquid loan markets go dormant. No real activity in the underwritten, large -cap COO in the syndicated loan market. The difference this time, direct lending is there, lots of liquidity, lending capital to really go and support private equity. So, similar in the liquid markets, but different in the sense that there are direct lenders there now to provide that capital. Well, certainly a highlight of our day. Ken, be well. Ken Kinsell, President and CEO of Churchill Asset Management, joining us from the Greenwich Economic Forum in Greenwich. Many people argue that these private credit guys is why the regional banking crisis maybe wasn't so bad earlier this year. Carol Masters, Simone Foxman, this is Bloomberg Radio. Bloomberg Radio, on demand and in your podcast feed. On the latest edition of the Bloomberg Intelligence podcast, a conversation with BI senior US regional banks analyst Herman Chan on the impact of charge -off trends from smaller banks. So, basically the banks, certain banks in Southeast the have preannounced in their earnings for the third quarter some charge -offs, so defaults on their lending based on some syndicated loans that they've syndicated out to a bunch of smaller regionals in the Southeast. And it basically revolves around a gas station operator that is pretty large down there and it's creating some
A highlight from Episode 122 - Sept. 17th, 2023 - B.A.N.S
"All right, all right, all right, all right. Welcoming you guys to another lovely episode of On The Record Podcast. I am DJ Intense, your host the most. And to the left of me, I have I am Walt. What's up, Walt? I'm about to say another word, my guy. If you guys heard earlier, you know, we were just doing some things off cameras. They're off the record. Things we don't, we're not going to bring on the record. And if we are, you're not going to get it. Unless you paid for it to Patreon. You know? Yeah, me too. That voice you hear right now, but there's no other than Ceddi said, what's up Ceddi? The infamous C -E -D. What's up people? How you doing people? I'm doing all right, I'm doing all right, man. You know, we took some time off. It was Labor Day weekend. Yeah. And then the final weekend, which is work weekend. Dude, we were work, work, work, work, work. Nonstop. Dude, I just figured they don't. Almost 90 hours of work. OT, OT. Man. One day was 20 hours of work. That's the state job. I can't wait till you quit that job. You and I both, brother. I need to make some money, but working like a slave ain't it, man? Nah. Bob Brock just said it. You think that you can get by with this hard work alone? Nah, you're fooling yourself. You're fooling yourself. Used to do that, but now you're doing that. It's a lie. It's a lie. It's a myth. All people is you do hard work, and you'll become a successor, that's all. Listen, reality is in this country, in America, you have to do a lot of grime. You gotta do a lot of collaboration. Depending on how you wanna do it, but most of the time, all those people who are billionaires and trillionaires are the ones who did the most foul -ish humanly possible to get what they're at right now in life. Listen, right now we're at over 180 days in the writer's strike and the actor's strike right now. And it could have ended this right now. This thing should have been handled already. $50 million for both unions. And now they're gonna get a loss of over $300 to $500 million because of this strike. And you have people like Drew Barrymore's punk ass. Well, she reneged on it though. She had to, because dude, she was getting the business with the WGA and the SGA. And it's separate, you know. Even... Bill Maher's bitch ass too, man, was... I didn't get the damn thing off the running. Was, oh, I don't need no writers, I'll be our show. Look, dude, your show sucks. The Seddie Swear Counter is in full effect. There you go, you have one. You can do like a ding sound from now on for my swears. I'm gonna keep it calm. I'm gonna keep it professional. Seddie the Sailor Man. I can't swish, come on. Listen, man, I'm just telling you, when Seddie get that spinach boy, man, we poppin' ice today. Oh, yeah. Little bird watch out. Now, but on some real issues, like dude, Bill Maher, the guy who said, I'm not a field n -word, I'm a house n -word, and who crapped on Stan Lee after he died and stuff, and says a bunch of other ridiculously retarded things, says he's gonna do a show. Stan Lee who? Marvel comic Stan Lee. Oh, Stan Lee, oh. That's what Bill Maher said. Yo, he be going extra heavy trying to relate to us blacks. You're a not house n -word. You're at the table, bro. You got the good chair. You got the good piece of chicken. He used to be down by the dam, but nowadays, man, it's horrible. He's just, you know, he's trying. What the legend Paul Mooney said, everybody wants to be black, so it's time to be black? Listen, you think Paul Mooney is trying to be black and competent? Hell no. I want to be in a gated community area. What's wrong with you? Like he says, everybody wants to be black. He listen to King Koon, so he know what that's about. Yeah, but Bill Maher is doing his show still, which I think it was crap with writers. It's going to be crap about writers. And then, you know, you're going to have to hire writers who are not non -union writers. We're going to be scabs. We're going to pretty much destroy their any chance of them getting actual work when the strike is done. If you get caught. Well, if you are what you say you are, then have no fear. Even if you're on YouTube and you want to get a chance of being in the industry, you can't do no reviews. No, no movie reviews, no TV show reviews, nothing. There's a strike. You doing that? You will be known and accounted for when you want to get your membership. And trust me, you don't want those problems. But my thing is, if there was already YouTubers like successful already doing movie reviews and being credible and stuff like that, that won't affect them. Is it already locked in like a partnership or whatever with certain movies? Then they could do it. As long as they get the permission from their respective union. OK. If they do something brand new, if we're coming out with The Exorcist coming out next week, they can't do no review for that at all. Oh, wow. Wah wah. Listen, I can't go into it because I want to become in that union because I want to be a voice actor. You want to sell out. I get it. So I can't speak on it at all. No, no, no. He's not selling out. No, he wants to. He wants to. No, he doesn't want to sell out. You want the Disney money. No, I want to buy in. He wants to buy in. Oh, yes. You want to buy in, you got to sell out, right? No, the license is fucking me, bro. I'm just saying. The license, the thing to get a SAG card, it's over $3 ,000 to get a SAG card. And you have to get that SAG card in order to get some work and residuals and all that stuff. That's just what it is. Listen, man, listen, Harvey Weinstein's in prison, bro. He can't get to you, my guy. He can't get to you, my guy. Listen, man, don't take that hotel meeting, bro. Am I Rose McGowan? Shoot it. It's either a Zoom call. I'm actually Judd. It's either a Zoom call or a posh Beverly Hills restaurant or a Permell Studios, wherever that super creep was out here making his rounds. But you don't got to worry about that no more. Filthy behavior. One of the girls was saying like, yeah, when I said no more hanky panky, you know. He felt a way. Yeah, you want that rolling letter to there, don't you? My guy, how could he feel a way? You've been imposing your will on these ladies for a long time. Speaking of entertainment, you had a concert this weekend, right? Yeah, yeah. I was, you know, I was like. This guy was really outside. I was like, I was like, I was like. What concert was this? I was like. Let me tell you. Go ahead, say it. I was like from the acting sheriff up north, back to back out here, you know. Yes, so for all the first time, longtime listeners, and you know, last time listening to how evidence goes, I had a couple of shows. This past Thursday, I went to an event that was sponsored by Spotify for up and coming artists. I saw three, three very, very talented artists. The main artist I went to see goes by Kamari. He's an artist that I discovered around COVID. He has a lot of like influences. He reminds me of like a Frank Ocean. He's really that, you know, artist type dude. And he put out this great, incredible album called A Brief Nirvana, which I advise everybody to check out. His name is Kamari, K -H -A -M -A -R -I. Highly recommend him. And I also saw these two other artists from the UK, St. Harrison and Elmin. That's my boy. And overall, it was a great experience, very, you know. It was at SOB, Sound of Brazil in New York City. Very intimate setting, great turnout, great energy.

A highlight from Get Ready for Laser Season: Dr. Macrene Alexiades on Everything You Need to Know
"This is the RPD podcast where we are always reaching for truth and beauty. Remember, the brands on the show are not paying to be here, so we get to ask the questions you want answered because you deserve to be informed so you can make the best choices for yourself. And with that said, I'm Amber, and today my fabulous cohost is Dr. Makreni Alexiadis. I hope I got that right. She is a fabulous Greece native. By the way, Greece is one of my favorite places in the world. But a Greek name, so I'm hoping I'm pronouncing that right. She also holds three degrees from Harvard, is a practicing dermatologist in New York City and an all -around amazing, brilliant woman. I'm so honored to have you on the show today, Dr. Makreni. How did I do with the pronunciation? Like a native. Like a fellow Greek, I'm so honored. I mean, so, you know, prior to this, you know, when we were just chatting a minute ago, Greece is one of my favorite places in the world. I've been there three times now. Never to skiros where you are, but it is just magical. Are you? You were actually born in Greece. I wasn't born in Greece, but I'm a dual citizen. I spent half my life here, half my life in America, back and forth. And so that has really inspired me and given me a worldly view and a balanced view. And the Greeks, we were taught the Socratic method from birth, which is to question and to probe and to find the meaning of life. So it has really benefited me as a physician and a scientist and a creative and an artist. And I'm grateful to be able to bring that kind of global viewpoint to everyone. I love that. And again, I find that the Greeks of all the places that had been were the most familial, the most warming, the most, you know, come on into my house, come do this. And also the best tomatoes I've ever had in my entire life. Like it's just the best food ever. Thank you. Well, it's sun and believe it or not, not that much water in the summer and soil makes for fruits fantastic and vegetables. So delicious. You know, so listen, full disclosure, we are recording this. It is still summer, but this will air in September. So with that said, you know, I'm so excited to have you here because you are truly an expert in everything lasers. In fact, you told me you were writing a second textbook while you're there in Greece. Yes. I usually take this time when I'm not seeing patients to work on my academics, which is particularly textbook writing, which requires undivided attention. My first textbook is Alexiadis's cosmetic dermatologic surgery that was published by Walters Kluwer. You can get it on Amazon and it is the first of its kind. It's a disorder based text that takes the reader down an algorithm of the best medical cosmetic, which includes injectables, heels and lasers and surgical treatment options. And it's good for both patients as well as colleagues, dermatologists, plastic surgeons, physicians, who really need to know what the gamut is, the panoply of treatment options that are available. And then my second textbook is on photodynamic therapy. That is with the publisher of Selvia. That is the book that I'm finishing right as we speak. And that is an area of specialty of mine as well. In addition to lasers, it's the use of light to cure disease. Oh, I love that. We've been talking so much about different light therapies, red light therapy, blue light therapy. But I'm hoping that today, that you are really known as a laser expert. And since, by the time this airs, last weekend will have been the unofficial end of summer, even though summer doesn't end for like another few weeks, this is a really great time for people to start thinking about different sort of laser therapies that they can do, right? And so I'm just wondering, when we hit the fall, what are some of the most popular things that you were seeing in your offices? Great questions. And you are right. My patients are planned out months in advance. So I do my fall laser planning in the spring. So patients come in the spring, they start to complain about the things that start to present themselves when we start to get sun exposure, such as brown spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation. And those are not conditions you want to treat in the summer, particularly with lasers, because lasers kick up the heat in the skin, and you can get a tanning like result from that. So we pause on the use of lasers for pigment until the fall. So it starts back up pretty much end of September, beginning of October. And the other is, is that lasers against pigment are not as effective in the summer when you're getting all your sun exposure. So it may actually be working, but it looks to the patient as if it's not working because they're tanning in the summer. So all my laser cases are already fully booked all the way through to the holidays. I mean, yes. And you do have, I don't know, are we allowed to name drop? Can you tell any of the celebrities? Well, I think it's like public knowledge. I leave it to my celebrities. If my celebrities want to mention me and give me some love, and some of them do like Sienna Miller, Brooke Shields, and those guys, it's wonderful, Nikki Hilton. But I really adhere very, very, very strictly to HIPAA. And I know like, I mean, people have called me a billion dollar box office success, which I cherish that title. But my lips are sealed and I just, but I derive a great deal of satisfaction, pride and joy actors at keeping and models in their business, in their work, well until their elder years, which is really a source of pride for me. So on that, do you feel like there are certain things that you recommend kind of everybody does? Of course, we all have different skin types. We all have different conditions, but are there certain procedures now that you were loving, especially coming into the fall, clearly we are too late to book with you, sad, sad, but are there things that you are kind of loving out there for people to be doing this time of year? And are there certain treatments that you love for this time of year? There is no end to what I can do. I mean, I have to say, I was at a dinner party that night and one of the ladies was saying how plastic surgeons or dermatologists told her there was like nothing to be done for her. I have to say, I mean, I am fortunate that I have the embarrassment of the riches of knowledge and experience in both injectables and devices, but really there is no end to what I can do. I can treat in the summer. I am just saying that there are certain devices you do not want to do in the summer, such as fractionated devices, Q -switch devices, picosecond technologies, those are better done in the fall, but I have great treats for everyone all summer long. One of my current favorites is radiofrequency microneedling, which I am honored and acknowledged as, single -handedly, the dermatologist, scientist, and laser specialist who brought this whole genre to market. I sought and attained the FDA approval between 2006 and 2010 for the prototype radiofrequency microneedling device. That one was called the Profound. And since then, we have had a huge crop, a whole generation of devices, such as Morpheus is one that people know about. But there are many different types of genius, infamy, intensive, they are utilized in a way that is safe for all skin colors, all skin types, and can be used in the summer months. So that is one of my all -time favorites for skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, rejuvenation, all summer long, with no risk of downtime or hyperpigmentation. Okay, so let's go back to the fall now, right? So because that's what we're kind of, the season we're coming into, good to know though that radiofrequency can be done year -round, what are your fall -specific treatments? What are the things that you're starting to address now, you know? Okay, so come September, you're done with your summer, Labor Day is over, now we're in the saddle, we're looking at this rung of treatment that is really dedicated to this time of year. When you're in September, be aware that there's still this delayed what we call seasonal lag. You can get this first week in October that's very sunny and warm and it really helps you to be outside. So please delay a little bit in treating your brown spots and hyperpigmentation with devices until October, however, in September, I do start to do some rejuvenation on people who I trust and know are really not going to go out in the sun, so that might include intense pulse like IPL, that is great for getting the summer off. All the sun damage you've accrued over the summer, you can start treating in September and if you're somebody who really is not going to go out in the sun, whether it's because you have kids in school or you yourself are working and you know that even if it's an Indian summer, you won't be outside, then you can treat with rejuvenation lasers such as fractionated resurfacing known as Fraxel, picosecond lasers such as Picogenesis or its predecessor, Genesis laser. These are all devices that are great for rejuvenation, for getting rid of sun damage, which you've accrued over the summer in short order so that especially if you can do a trio, which a lot of times these devices are done three months in a row, a month apart, three treatments. If you do September, October, November, you're ready for holidays. You're ready for Thanksgiving and winter holidays. Now I have to ask you, and I don't want to put you on the spot because do you have a lot of these devices in your office? Oh yeah, I have over 50 lasers and devices in my office. So here's where I'm going to put you on the spot then. Is there one that's like kind of your favorite? It's like asking who is your favorite child. Oh no. No, I mean, you know, my girls will tell you, like they're all my favorites. For example, I have specific devices that are my go -to and my favorite for eyelid tightening. So my claim to fame is that I replaced the plastic surgery with devices and injectables, right? And I'm replacing cosmetic procedures with active ingredients through my macrine actives. So that's been kind of the progression of my career over the last, and I have to say I've been in science for over 40 years, so I've been working really hard for many decades, but the progression was initially replacing plastic surgery with devices and injectables. And I go through phases of what my favorites are and then taking all that knowledge and translating it into active ingredients. So ultimately we can do all this at home, but I will just give you some of my highlights. All right, so if you don't want plastic surgery, be on the lookout for skin laxity, in my opinion, other than like having brown spots and sun damage, which of course does, you know, make you look not so great. I think it is equally important to keep an eye out for jowls and loss of the beautiful like elasticity of the skin that you want, especially in the jawline and neck. If you start to see jowls, if you start to see laxity, intervene earlier with non -surgical alternatives so that you don't end up needing surgery. Give you an example, I've been taking care of a classmate of mine from Harvard undergrad that we were class of like 89 and she doesn't look any different than when we were in college. Why? I have her face memorized and she believes in me so much and in the science and what I've done. She comes every four months like clockwork for all these years, 20 years, getting skin tightening with me with radio frequency devices, infrared light. She doesn't have any jowls, of course, a little bit of filler. And then she uses my actives. So if you were to really prioritize devices in my practice, I would say you want to keep on top of two classes of devices. One are the skin tightening technologies, whether it's around the eyes, jawline or neck or body, if you're down to body now. And then the rejuvenation technologies that we just talked about, IPL, fractionated technologies, genesis type devices to keep the sun damage and wrinkles at bay. And then if you need something more aggressive, you can always go to a CO2 laser, which I'm a specialist specialist in that as well. And that really is in my hands, an art form. I tailor the carbon dioxide and the erbium lasers, which are really our Cadillac devices for those who have more significance on damage in most cases or wrinkles and aging. But honestly, even people who have very light skin that starts to wrinkle a little bit prematurely in their 40s, maybe candidates already. And that, too, prevents the need for, say, blepharoplasty, which is eyelid surgery. It may prevent the need for a facelift because it'll give you enough of a strong rejuvenation.

There's still some concern out there in the market that there is room for things to deteriorate a little bit more than what they're indicating. As small and medium -sized businesses struggle, they don't present as much competition. The supply chain has still got dislocations globally and here in the U .S. This is Bloomberg Markets with Paul Sweeney and Matt Miller on Bloomberg Radio. Matt Miller here at 731 Lex with Simone Foxman. Paul Sweeney is going to join us later on this afternoon on Bloomberg Businessweek. We were talking about the fact that the market feels like it's off, and the reason that it feels, I think, like it's down further than it is is because it's a shortened trading week, and we've had sell -offs every day this week, right? We were down Tuesday, Wednesday, and today, and on Monday obviously closed for Labor Day. And we know that September is supposed to be negative for the S &P 500 over the past 30 years, down 710.

I'm doing very well cuz football is here. So it was back Thank God is fully back. I Mean, I wish I wish the trends Kelsey wasn't hurt because I feel like that takes a little bit away from the opening game But it is what it is If you look at it though over the last However, many years the Kansas City Chiefs have been on this run. They've had relatively pretty decent help Throughout their whole thing. I mean they left they lost the left tackle in the Super Bowl That's why they lost against, you know, Brady they couldn't protect Patrick Mahomes but it's it's getting to that time in their Era it where gets hard, you know being a guy that's been on one of those teams a dynasty. They're not there quite yet but uh You know, they're well on their way if they could stay healthy and you would know better than anyone about dynasty So when would you say they're there? How many would they have to win before you say they're a dynasty everyone knows it's three Okay, I don't know what's going on. Everyone keeps on talking like oh This is you you into no, it doesn't matter if you get to the Super Bowl We went to eight straight AFC championships or something like that. Like you got to win three to get to be in Cowboys previous Patriots Niners Steelers It's not two. It's not two So tell me I want to get into your Fox gig and transitioning to meeting that since we're on it It's a good topic because I'm just curious because one of the things I'm looking at is someone who's scouting Over -unders to bet and and you know who's gonna win the AFC and stuff like that The I Motivation shouldn't say the motivation. I mean, I think the motivation is there even if you win But is it difficult or how difficult is it after winning two like they've won? It's very difficult To get geared up every Sunday, you know people don't realize How hard it is once you go out win a Super Bowl Okay, now they have two that when you win that first one you become a target everyone circles you on the schedule You win another one now everyone circling now now Divisions and conferences are designing their teams to beat you. So it gets harder and harder and as an individual player You know Your motivation you have to pull what what's motivating you because natural human instinct you're like You know, we got this we're good and then you know something happens you have injuries here an injury They're a player doesn't sign back because no two teams are the same. It's a new team every year. So it's very hard mentally To keep it going, you know And you have and they have a leader in Patrick Mahomes that can do that We had Tom Brady Tom Brady was always always on he was like he was always motivated So that gives you hope for the Kansas City Chiefs because they have such a great player and Patrick Mahomes who's their leader You know their best player is is their quarterback is their leader and the way he is is huge. Do you think? the intensity to beat the Chiefs to throne the Chiefs is Similar to what you guys experience and I ask you from this standpoint and I hope you don't take offense to this But I feel like I feel like the Chiefs are not hated in any way I'd feel like no one dislikes Mahomes No one dislikes Andy Reid you guys and I think it was mainly because of your success But there were people who didn't like Tom for whatever reason there was the ridiculousness with the flake eight the stupidest thing ever people didn't like Belichick, maybe You guys I don't think we're like Completely beloved whereas KC seems like I don't know who maybe people are sick of Travis Kelsey a little bit Like our teams you think is amped up to beat the Chiefs as they were you guys I Think the games changed the player has changed Just as an overall, I mean we look at games nowadays you got guys over here You know dapping up helping guys back back when we were playing the Jets when I first got in the league Bart Scott was mother -effing Billy O 'Brien on the sideline guys were fighting before, you know, it's just it's kind of changed And it could be for good or could be for bad. That's for weather for everyone else to determine But and also, you know, the Kansas City Chiefs that the Patriots were on it for 20 years Okay, like when I got there they already had three Super Bowls and they were on a little drought, you know But they were still winning, you know, they went 7 16 and oh they you know 14 win seasons they were still putting out big winning seasons for a long a longer time and You know the Chiefs just haven't been there I'm so I'm sure the Chiefs keep on doing well that people are gonna start hating them too, you know, yeah. Yeah The I want to get into some other stuff about the Patriots and and Belichick and Brady and but let's talk about you going to Fox you did inside the NFL. I enjoyed you on there I wrote that a couple times for SI. Now. You're gonna be on the Fox NFL kickoff show. It's remarkable I don't know if you've seen it Maybe you just know it off the top of your head because you friends with all these people but it is remarkable how every patriot is in media now is on TV, you know, you've got the McCordy's Gronk is part of the Fox family. Everyone knows about the Brady situation McGinnis the TV Bruschi It's like if you're on you were part of our Patriot team good love winners. Yeah people love winners Yeah, and they hate them so, you know you get a little bit of both They're either gonna love your hate you but they're gonna watch you It's like you had no choice but to go into TV basically after after all it's it's I don't know it's uh, You know when you play for an organization like New England and You've had the success that we had over the years that we played, you know It opens up a lot of doors and it's plain and simple. That's that's really what it is The the sacrifice and the efforts that we put into our career helped us after our career and a lot of guys you know, they have that hard work mentality that still want to stay in the game, but may not want to be coaches and And that's what media is, you know, that's what I feel. You know, I get my football fix by Going into a pre -production meeting and I haven't done it with Mike Vick or Charles Woodson or Chris and Thomas or Peter Shrager But you get your football locker room kind of vibe when you do those like when I was on inside the NFL I'm sitting there talking with Phil Simms Patrick, uh, you know, Brandon Marshall Michael Irving, Ray Lewis, James Brown and you have these These meetings where you just get to sit and talk football It's before you go on the lights are shining but you sit and you're talking stories You're breaking football down with people that play football So, I think that's a huge probably reason about it and you know, it's not you know We're used to putting in these crazy hours 14 -hour days Seven days a week don't get this year family and media, you know, like you got to do your homework You got to you got to watch all the games, but you know, we can still have a life outside of it, you know These guys are going coach. I mean people always ask me. Why aren't you in coaching and I go You know, I did my time Like I put my my 12 13 14 hour days in and when I would leave work I would see coaches families in the parking lot Seeing the coaches before they would go to bed because they still had another three hours. I ain't doing that Yeah, you know and then if you go somewhere else where it's not like that Then I'm mentally all messed up because well, there's some people that are doing it, you know So it's just I like I'm happy or I'm mad. I'm excited to go out and entertain and talk my knowledge When you were playing and you're playing days towards the end of your career Did you think you would get into TV or did you not think about it while you were playing? I Didn't necessarily think I'd become an analyst and do what I'm doing right now I always enjoyed creating content You know whether it was our YouTube videos our Instagram videos and all the content we build on J around je11 You know that was booming with with the Patriot nation that would always support, you know I always I found a niche in that and and I enjoyed that process of creating content going in and sitting in a you know in a editing room and and Filming up all this stuff and thinking it's gonna be terrible and then cutting it down and then you know having all your other team Because there's a team of people, you know That put put the work in to to get this good content out and I enjoyed it So I didn't know it was gonna be to the extent of what I'm doing right now but I knew you know, I was comfortable in front of a camera and you know, I know I faced for radio, but Thank God I won a lot of games Had it and just tell me were were there other networks like in the running to get your services Was it just Fox like I'd end up at Fox why Fox? Tell me a little bit about joining I want to say any other names there were, you know There was another network that was involved and I sat down and I thought Fox would be perfect You know, I got a couple teammates there with Gronk Brady You know, I'm really excited to get to hang out with you know Charles Woodson and in talk football with Mike Vick and Chris Thompson Peter Schrager and you know Fox is like a If you know the story behind Fox, I mean they were created as This little small sport network with John Madden.
A highlight from Bitcoin News with the Caf Bitcoin Crew + Panties for Bitcoin - September 6th, 2023
"Hello, and welcome to the Cafe Bitcoin Podcast brought to you by Swan Bitcoin, the best way to buy and learn about Bitcoin. I'm your host, Alex Danson, and we're excited to announce that we're bringing the Cafe Bitcoin Conversations Twitter Spaces to you on this show, the Cafe Bitcoin Podcast, Monday through Friday every week. Join us as we speak to guests like Michael Saylor, Len Alden, Corey Clifston, Greg Foss, Tomer Strohle, and many others in the Bitcoin space. Also, be sure to hit that subscribe button. Make sure you get notifications when we launch a new episode. You can join us live on Twitter Spaces Monday through Friday, starting at 7 a .m. Pacific and 10 a .m. Eastern every morning to become part of the conversation yourself. Thanks again. We look forward to bringing you the best Bitcoin content daily here on the Cafe Bitcoin Podcast. All right. So that's the first time I played that, I think, for one of the live shows. Volume OK? Volume was pretty good, Alex. It had a couple of dips, but overall, it hit good. All right. Cool, cool. Good morning, everybody. Good morning to all of you Cafe Bitcoiners, Dom Bay, Mickey, Tomer. Good morning. I haven't seen you in a little while. How are you? How are you doing? I'm doing good. Yeah, it's nice to connect again. You were on vacation. I was on I don't know, I wasn't on vacation, but I was doing some stuff that was keeping me quite busy and a little bit away from the show. But and maybe you weren't on vacation, but you were away. Who knows? Nice to hear your voice again. Nice to be in dialogue. Let's see where today takes us. Yeah, I mean, officially it was classified as vacation. But the reality is I was busy as hell, but whatever. All good. Good morning, Peter. How are you doing? Good morning. I'm having a great morning. I've had a great week and unfortunately I won't be around. Well, I might be around tomorrow and Friday, but I doubt it because I'm taking my motorcycle and heading up into the mountains. That's awesome. Elaborate. Elaborate. Let's see, I'm driving east of the Cascades to a city called Chelan, and from there I'm going to we're going to I'm going to spend the night there with a friend. And then tomorrow we're going to head up into the we take a series of dirt roads called the Washington BDR, which is the back road discovery route. It's about 100 miles of dirt roads to the next town, which is Wenatchee. And then the next day we do the same thing to Ellensburg. And the next day after that, we do the same thing to a town called Natchez and then I'll head home. So 300 miles or so on dirt roads should be should be fun on the on the behemoth that I drive. I don't know why I have to have the biggest enduro in the universe, but apparently I've got Napoleon syndrome. I just hear in the background, I was the highwayman along the coach roads I did ride. Nicely done. Alex, you got a response to that? I actually I do. There is some nonsense that we have to get out of the way, so we might as well do that now. By the way, good morning and welcome to everyone. You're listening to Cafe Bitcoin episode 428. Our mission for this show is to provide the signal in a sea of noise and chase the other seven billing people on this planet why there's hope because of this bright orange future that we call Bitcoin. And for the nonsense, here we go. Crowds are coming by the dozens to get an up close view at what some say is a piece of Irish folklore, a leprechaun. I don't want to know what I don't want to go in here to go back home. Sorry, I had to remove Alex from the stage for playing that song, but we'll let him back up. What was Alex up to the last two weeks? I think you got booted, bro. Jerk, I think that counts. I'm pretty sure it counts. Some of you motherfuckers out there owe me five million sets. Let's go pay up. Oh, that's fucking awesome, dude. That's amazing. Oh, that's the funniest fucking thing I've seen in a long time. All right, that took me to get the co -host back. Some of you might be highly confused by this. Just just ignore it. Pretend it didn't happen. For those of you who know, you know, somebody owes me five million sets. Let's go. I'll expect payment by the end of the day. Thank you. You need to publish an address, then I'll wait for them to reach out to me. All right, that's good. Well, congratulations. Don't spend it all in one place. Thanks, man. If they pay, I doubt they're going to pay. They're going to come up with some weasel way to say, we don't know you because you didn't follow the rules because of whatever. I don't give a shit. Yeah, you didn't read the fine print. It said the temperature had to be 85 exactly. Hold on. The best part is, is that you played the game. I mean, come on. That's all you can do, right? At some point, you just got to bow down and play the game. I am bound on a nobody. Fuck that. Good morning, Matt C. How you doing? Hey, all doing well. It's nice to be back from summer vacay. Hope everyone had a happy Labor Day and excited for the fall. It's been good. It's been good. What have you been doing in this sideways crabby kind of market, Matt? Just laughing at how predictable this, let's just call it the fourth quarter before the halving always is. Every single cycle, the weirdest FUD comes out and it's the too long, didn't read it is basically what if the Bitcoin halving somehow breaks BTC every single cycle, new cycle, same FUD. It's just a different reiteration. It boggles my mind just how exact history repeats every four years. But I mean, what are you going to do? Mickey, good morning. What's up? Yeah, so it's like it's kind of like that mining death spiral story that pops up every four years. And I think it just illustrates how little these shit coiners really understand about Bitcoin, because because they get, you know, I get my buddy, I talk about him every once in a while, but he loves ETH, you know, and he'll talk shit to me. But every once in a while, he'll text me with just like the most insanely basic question about Bitcoin. And it's like, oh, dude, I thought you were like the crypto expert. I thought you were Bitcoin. I thought you understood everything, but they don't. They're just fed these these narratives from these influencers who are sort of obviously grifting to most of us. But yeah, it's just it's just dumb shit. So, I mean, the minor death spiral is pretty easily fixed by a couple of difficulty adjustments. And then, boom, the day is saved. It's not even it's not even that it's so this is the perfect place to talk about this because you can't explain it in a tweet or two. But what we're watching is the most competitive race of accruing hashrate, increasing your efficiency and putting your competition out of business. You you you're right. You might have the weaker miners that go out of business after the twenty twenty four, but you have the big players that have never been more profitable today. Names that you know of, like Riot, Marathon. These guys are sitting on 60, 70, 80 percent margins today. And you ask, like, well, how is that possible? It's because they keep slamming on the latest and greatest Bitcoin miners that are twice as more powerful and efficient and profit generating as the previous generation. So you're literally putting your competition out of business. You don't have to hire tons of new people or more administrative costs just for putting a couple more computers online. Your only your only impediment is energy costs. But these smart players, they they set their deals in terms of years, three years, five years. And if they're in Texas, they get energy credits just for shutting off. So it's such a it's a nuanced, complex conversation. And you're right, like grifters, crypto influencers, they prey on that FUD, that fear that a new person just doesn't understand. Like, well, I read that if Bitcoin doesn't hit 50K by having all the miners are going to, you know, go bankrupt, it's like that's so there's so much wrong with that and it's impossible to explain in just one tweet. Tomer, do you have any thoughts here? Is there a lot of that FUD going around more than usual or are we more sensitive to the relatively same amount of it that's going around because it's kind of a bear market and it's dull and and the halving is indeed coming up. So we're taking it a little more seriously. I don't actually know. I'm I'm a little bit surprised to hear this because I would say it's hard to put your finger on the timing because you forget, but all this talk of security budget and whatnot seemed like it was a conversation that was maybe at the beginning of this year, if my memory serves correctly, and then it kind of went away because the Bitcoin price went up and the fees went up to use Bitcoin. So it suddenly seemed like the security budget, which is made up, fallacious concept, went away. But it sounds like it's coming back. I think there's always there's always a lot of confusion about Bitcoin and there may always be, but certainly because it's so new, because so few people understand how it works, because it's got so short a history. There are people who are going to try to take advantage of that by intentionally spreading false information. There are people who are going to be honestly mistaken and honestly confused and have pretty rational sounding arguments for why they genuinely believe something is is wrong with Bitcoin. And the only thing that proves them wrong is that Bitcoin keeps functioning exactly as designed. And I think this is really this kind of gets me going on where the whole altcoin space always comes from. All these forks of Bitcoin, the overwhelming majority of altcoins are just copy paste code of Bitcoin and change a few variables and see where it goes. Or they've gotten a little bit more sophisticated since because all of those have died out. But it's really like, why bother? What what's your hypothesis as to what's wrong with Bitcoin that needs to be fixed, especially if Bitcoin is offering itself, presenting itself as money? I think other coins came into existence and tried to offer different things, but wouldn't let go of the fact that like, oh, and we're also money like Bitcoin. And they weren't money like Bitcoin. So they they ended up suffering from this tremendous identity crisis, which still devours them. But I'm kind of going off on a few different tangents. Happy to pick up anywhere without trying to confuse the conversation too much. I see lots of hands up.
Is Trump Stronger Than Ever? Kane of Citizen Free Press Weighs In
"Us now is one of our favorite guests, citizenfreepress .com. Citizen Kane joins us. Kane, thank you for taking the time. A lot happening in the news cycle. Kane, you and I were talking all spring about how they were going to indict Trump. Here we are now post -Labor Day. The summer of indictments. It's not yet over. More indictments are coming. But where do you stand, Kane? You do this 18, 20 hours a day. Expectations versus reality. Is Trump stronger than you thought he would be now facing 600 years in federal prison? Yeah, thanks for having me on, Charlie. And I would say an emphatic yes to your first question. You know, that was the big, right? When you and I were dealing with this three months ago, five months ago, that was our big unknown, right? Is we knew the indictments were coming, but we didn't know how the voters would respond. And so we were sort of looking, you know, as much as we hate polls and know all the problems with polls, that was our only way forward. And we've been sort of looking for this. So there was a poll out yesterday done after the most recent Georgia indictment. And Trump, you know, well, I think the last time I was on, we talked about one poll. He was leading 49 -41 in swing states. That was McLaughlin, or McLaughlin poll. And then a poll came out yesterday, Wall Street Journal showing him dead even with Biden. And we've started to see these sort of fearful articles from Washington Post and New York Times just wringing their hands, wondering why aren't Trump's numbers, why aren't his poll numbers falling? So I think we have the first answer to the question, which is the lay of the land, four indictments out. Trump has not been hurt. In fact, he has been helped. And now we'll just have to sort of cross our fingers and watch if this changes as we head into the actual trials.
A highlight from MONEY REIMAGINED: The Thrilling Frontier of Tokenized Assets and Their Impact on Bitcoin
"Hello, and welcome to Money Reimagined. I'm Michael Casey here this week with my co -host Sheila Warren. You can listen to us weekly on the CoinDesk Podcast Network or wherever you get your podcasts. We would love to hear from you. So tell us what you think in an email at podcasts at coindesk .com using the subject line Money Reimagined. All right. Well, Sheila, that's it. Summer's over. Labor Day weekend done. Get down to work. All right. This is it. We're sort of diving in here. Bit of news going on around the place in the regulatory world, which of course is a major interest of yours. But I think today I'd really like to dive into the conversation around tokenization. It seems as if the word that was a buzzword for a number of years has become an even bigger buzzword. There's a lot going on in this RWA, real -world asset concept. Some sort of seeing it as the mainstream, or at least the trad -fying killer app almost for crypto. But I got a lot of thoughts, a lot of different ideas on it. But before we go into that, what's going on? We've got news out of Australia. Yeah, yeah, yeah. There's a roundup on the sort of the global regulatory front. Yeah. Well, there's always a lot going on. I mean, I'm not going to do the full global rundown. But two things I thought were kind of interesting that got some press were what happened in Australia. There was a bill that have been introduced to basically think about some regulatory parameters around crypto that got rejected. I think that's my view on this is it's less of the headline maker than it's kind of being touted to be. It's just a slowing down of the function. And so the prime minister in Australia had put out this really interesting token mapping consultation exercise February, in I believe. And that was supposed to lead to this consultation around how do you actually regulate and license crypto asset service providers. The legislature basically said, let's wait until that work is done, essentially is how I read the rejection of this bill. But it got some press worthy of mention. And of course, you with your Australian roots, might have some interesting comments on politics in Australia's general matter. The other thing that happened in region, I'll just kind of stay in that region, is Singapore. Singapore, of course, has a new has new leadership. The new president, who used to be a central bank chair, has expressed a view around crypto, you know, calling it, I believe the quote is slightly crazy. You know, I, for one, do not think that is an inaccurate assessment of the crypto ecosystem. Relatively reasonable assessment of the overall. It's also modified slightly somewhat. You know what I mean? But also, I don't think we should be surprised that a central bank chairman is going to have a view that is, you know, influenced by the focus that that individual and anyone in that position is going to have on monetary policy, on fiat, on M0 and M1, you know, etc. So, again, something that made some headlines, I didn't read too much into that. I found it more entertaining than anything else. And I think just a healthy sense. I think that the industry does need to have a healthy sense of humor about some of these things and recognize, you know, that our reputation perhaps precedes us. And that isn't always, you know, it isn't always that we're seen as the most calm, rational, sober actors, you know. And who would want it to be anyway? Ecosystem. Right, exactly. So, I'll stop there. Crazy is kind of what draws me into something. Isn't that, you're not above, right? Yeah. And I thought it was actually, yeah, as you said, like pretty accurate. It's slightly crazy. Yep. Well said. True. Correct. Look, I think that the reason why maybe they got some headlines, both of these things, is they because run a little counter to the narrative that, you know, we talked about. They, hey, the rest of the world is embracing this stuff, you know, that Japan's moving forward and Hong Kong is now all into it and Dubai, et cetera, et cetera. And like, you know what? Yeah, there's still hesitancy out there. And look, I think, as you said, yeah, a former central banker, like, should we be surprised? I think, you know, the fact that - I don't think so. Seems on brand.
A highlight from Solana Is Back! (Top Crypto News)
"Welcome to BitBoy Crypto! Home of the BitSquad, the largest and greatest crypto community, and all the Interwebs. Come to us if you want to discover all things crypto. It is September 5th. It's 11 .31am. We got AJ on the side. AJ, how are you doing? How was your three -day weekend? It was awesome, actually. I had a really, really good time. Jada's back from the West Coast, and we just kind of hung out, went shopping, got a bunch of groceries, you know, just did the normal, normal, normal weekend. So you spent like $2 ,000, $3 ,000? Nah, like $400, $500. Okay. But it's still, you know... It's still a quarter ETH? Yeah. Still a quarter ETH. But hey, no big deal. Drew, how was your Labor Day weekend? It was real good. Real good. Lots of work, a lot of trees cutting, a lot of things moving. I'm making a road. I'm moving and building in. All right. Guys, we're going to be talking about Solana and the stablecoin, of course. We got some Bitcoin news as well. Also, China dumping. What's happening with that? Jim Cramer just turned bullish on this top 10 altcoin. Guys, we're not kidding. We're going to talk about that as well. Should you start selling? Is it a short? Is it a long? Also, we got some Elon Musk stuff, and also Cassio, huge watch guy, G -Shock, partnering with Matic. That's pretty big news. And we're going to talk about Gala as well. Then we got the X news, and Deasy has crazy, crazy life news, folks. I just posted something up. Some of you who follow me on Instagram or X might see it as well. All right. We're adjusting the camera for AJ. Okay. Okay. AJ, you're just too tall. Just a tall strapping lad. I should try. Should I scoot down? Okay. I'm good. I'm kidding. We're good now. Guys, make sure you're following us on YouTube. We've got a lot of great videos coming out. We're going to keep putting out the awesome stuff. We just got some BNB stuff you're going to want to make sure you follow. Let's get right into the crypto market cap, though. Look at coins, AJ. Look at the number of coins. You see that? So many coins. Let's just stop, everybody. Just stop. No more coins. Of course, we know there's tens of thousands extra besides not listed here. Market cap is down. I kind of want to hit refresh. Just make sure we have that fresh, fresh data because Deasy just turned the market green, folks. That's the power of Deasy. That's the power of you hitting that like button. Now we're coming up 0 .2 % to the upside here. It is 1 .8 trillion, essentially. 24 -hour volume looking pretty good for a Tuesday off a holiday weekend, 45 billion. Bitcoin dominance, 46 .3. Tim is sick. He's working from home. If you watch the Investing Bros, you probably saw him. He was in his basement, his bunker. He had like a towel on his head, a big box of tissues the whole time, but he still brought the alpha, though, for sure. Did he get COVID from Jill Biden? Oh, I hope not. I hope not because he has a baby. Let's hope it's not COVID. It's just normal, human sick, nothing crazy. Yeah, let's just hope it's normal. I think he can fare better as well as the baby better than people in their 80s, though. Gas is really, really low, folks. If you're looking to get into some alts, I will say this. I peeled off, put some back into some ETH this morning. I'm not going to say what, but I did grab some ETH this morning. Peeled off a quarter, quarter ETH, aka AJ's grocery budget there. All right, let's look at the coins in Bitcoin is down 0 .4%. So what does that mean? It means the other coins are going to be picking up the load here. So we have Ethereum. It is up 0 .4%. We have XRP up 0 .2%. Cardano almost up 1%. Dogecoin up 1 .6%. But then Solana kind of taking it home here. It is now 4 .1 % to the upside. Ton coin fell a ton. It is down 6 .4. Polygon also picking up some good news with the watchmaker. You might be g -shocked to see it go up 2 .8%. All right, let's look at the top gainers, everybody.

"The U .S. Border Patrol has exciting and rewarding career opportunities with the nation's largest law enforcement organization. Earned great pay with outstanding federal benefits and up to $20 ,000 in recruitment incentives. Learn more online at CBP .gov slash careers slash USBP. Welcome to today's podcast sponsored by Hillsdale College. All things Hillsdale at Hillsdale .edu. I encourage you to take advantage of the many free online courses there. And of course listen to the Hillsdale Dialogues. All of them at Q for Hillsdale .com or just Google Apple, iTunes and Hillsdale. Morning Glory, America, Bonjour, Hi Canada. Everybody is back in school. You know summer is over when the senators have to go back to work. If you're hanging around National Airport today or Reagan you're going to see or Dulles you're going to see senators coming back. So you know that actually the fall is over. We are without Dwayne today. He's stuck at Burning Man. As many of you know Burning Man turned into a giant quicksand, a giant mud bath, a complete and utter disaster. And Dwayne always goes to Burning Man because he's woke. And I don't know when we're going to get him back. If you're watching on the Salem News Channel the pictures of the Burning Man Caravan from nowhere to nowhere is truly remarkable. They had years worth of rain overnight just as they got there. And to my way of thinking if you can check a weather forecast before you go to Burning Man you kind of deserve this. And it's not Woodstock. They didn't have that good of a music. So when Dwayne gets back we'll ask him about it. But the Wall Street Journal reports this morning technology entrepreneurs, artists and other free spirits like Dwayne who flock to this desert playa land for the annual Burning Man, this desert playa for the annual Burning Man Festival are accustomed to weathering, withering heat and dust storms. This year they wound up wallowing in the muck. A desert storm turned the dry lake bed into a thick slimy clay over the weekend transforming the Burning Man site 90 miles north of Reno, Nevada into a quagmire enforcing the closure of roads in and out of the event. Attendees spent the weekend covered in mud which kicked their boots and made traversing the temporary city difficult. The rain flooded tents causing some participants to rush to find new accommodations or to quit the festival entirely if they could manage to find a way out. Now I have no idea where Dwayne is. We'll find out. He'll wander in eventually. But if you go there that's on you. But watch for senators. First Lady Biden has COVID, pray for a quick recovery, sleep mild symptoms. Wall Street Journal because there is no news. Labor Day weekend is officially a no news weekend along with the 4th of July Memorial Day. Nothing happens. If we are ever Pearl Harbor again, it's going to happen on Memorial Day or it doesn't rule out terrorist attacks. They're not dumb enough to do this. They might be dumb enough to actually attack us on Memorial Day, Labor Day or July 4th because no one is in the office. But the Wall Street Journal realizing they would have a giant news hole this morning did post their Wall Street Journal poll.
A highlight from Everybody is Replaceable!!!
"Everyone is replaceable. Joanna, you are replaceable. Even when people buy dupes of like bags and shoes and perfumes and like all of these other things, it is just not the original. And you know it! Hello, lovely people. Hi, Joanna. How are you doing? I'm doing good, Tracy. How are you? I'm doing great myself. It is Labor Day. What did you do today? Well, I pretty much cleaned my apartment, which has been quite in a mess for a bit. But I got to cleaning and I'm really excited because I think, I do love cleaning. I don't think, but I do love cleaning. So just being able to do that makes me happy. So that's pretty much all I did. How about you? You said I'm wife material. For me, I just spend the day working. You know, not much. But yeah, that's basically it. Ain't nothing to it. I wish I was out exactly. Just running. I wish I was outside though. Cause I've seen like the videos of the carnival happening in Brooklyn. And I wish I could go for the carnival. But you know, if we just wear horses, Vegas will ride. Period. She's educated. Yeah, period. Well, today we do have a spicy topic. But before we do get into it, we'll have to start with prayer. Alright, should we pray? Lord Jesus, we thank you so much for today. Thank you Father God that finally we're able to sit here and to have discussions on different topics. But also to glorify you with our words. Holy Spirit, we invite you into this space. We actually acknowledge you in this space. And we ask that you would be our guide and director. And help us to say that which you want us to say to bring glory to your holy name. Thank you in Jesus name I pray. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Why are you looking at me like that? I wish everyone could see. When she's giving sight, I'm like, amen. Amen. You were looking at me like, you know how when you un -spit me about a like play or who or whatever. That's how you were looking at me. You're like, this is how I want to do this stuff. This is how I want to do things again. How you started, I can't help it. I was going to, but when I saw your face, I was like, let me be steady. That's funny. Oh well, oh well, oh well. Guys, I'm excited about this topic. I feel like it has been a hot topic maybe. A lot of people talking about it lately. And so we also want to discuss and give our take on it. Before that, let's give out our business shout -out of the day. Of the week actually, because you're not going to hear from us the following week. So this week's business shout -out goes to Neil Bina. And she's upcoming and she makes beautiful nail designs, persons, whatever it is. She's really good at her job and I entreat everyone to look her up on Instagram. Nailed Bina, N -A -I -L -E -D, by N -A -A. She's so good at what she does, yo. I look at her work and I'm like, well, I'm proud of her. I'm proud of her work. So, and I will never show anyone fake. Period. Thank you. So yeah, y 'all go check her out. Go check her out. I think she's a really great nail artist. So what? Yeah, nail tech. Oh, nail tech? Yeah. Nail tech. Okay, yeah, nail tech, yeah. And she's, she's a friend of ours. So please support her business. Yeah, period. All right, Tracy, do you want to get us into our topic for today? Everyone is replaceable. Joanna, you are replaceable. Oh my gosh. Why did that just sound like so off in my ears? What? Say, I want to hear that. You are replaceable. Oh my gosh, that hurts my feelings. I'm sorry. Not. Well, I don't think I'm a believer that honestly, like as woke as it sounds. I don't think I believe that. And I have to say I agree with you. It is a statement that when I hear, sends word flags to me. And I'm sharing the same sentiments as you do. I really hate to hear people say that like, everyone is replaceable. Everyone is replaceable. Everyone is replaceable. Because then, you then treat people as dispensable. And I don't think anyone is dispensable. But yeah. Yeah, back to you. What would you say? Yeah, I was saying like, it sounds like a very woke statement. Like, you know how one person gets up and they have their opinion about something and everyone just kind of hops on it without like, actually, Deeping it and like forming their own personal opinion about it. Or sometimes like people feel like their opinion is contrary to the majority. And so they feel like, you know, what in order to not come up as controversial or whatever. I'ma just, you know, run with what everyone else is saying. Right. So that is a woke statement. Everyone is what replaceable. Everyone is replaceable. And it's so funny that in recent years is gaining popularity.
A highlight from Jacqueline Fritschi-Cornaz
"Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. Would you consider yourself smart, insightful, precocious, astute, clever, wise, beyond your years, and good at checking a thesaurus for synonyms? Well, then you've come to the right place. Here now is the handsome, attractive, striking, gorgeous, and quite frankly, breathtaking, Eric Metaxas. Hey there, folks. Welcome to the show. I like to call today Tuesday. Hello and good morning. Because yesterday was Monday. Yesterday was Labor Day. And so if I look confused, it's a sign that I'm confused. It's hard to get back in. So it's nice. It's a nice, you know, you get, you know, it's almost done. We're almost done. We're almost on Friday. So listen, we have an exciting guest. Well, two exciting guests. First of all, in a few minutes, I'm speaking to Jacqueline. I think it's pronounced Jacqueline. We're going to find out. There's a new film coming out called Mother Teresa and Me. I'm going to see a screening tonight of that film. But we have the woman behind the film, not Mother Teresa, the other woman behind the film with us in a couple of minutes. Very exciting, honestly, to get her here in the studio. We also have Father Pavone coming in today. That'll probably be our two. He is the head of priests for life. He's a hero. And I want you to hear what he has to say. We've got a lot of other crazy guests coming up this week. I won't mention it. Chris. Yeah. I do want to say. Oh, yeah. Thank you. Right. Two, three things, three things before we get to our guest Jacqueline. First of all, our food for the poor raised. Thank you to all of you who gave because without you food for the poor couldn't do what they do. And you didn't need to give just because I hectared didn't need to to respond. Most of you didn't respond. There was some congratulations in resisting my siren song to give food to the poor people in our hemisphere. But it really is. I just want to say I'm grateful to those of you who stepped up. God bless you. Thank you very much. I want to say that even though I'm tan, don't don't let that fool you. I've been working. Really? You have a you have a rating writing deadline. I'm working on a sequel to my book letter to the American Church and writing books. And really, even the last part is very hard. And so even though I look tan and rested, it's a lie. Well, the tan part technically is true. Yeah. But I I feel it's not as easy as they say, huh? Well, you can just put it in chat, GPT and say write a sequel to my last book. Yeah. No, it's so it's been it's been I ask your prayers, those of you who pray, because it's it's hard. And letter to the American Church, by the way, is, you know, I say it is I say it genuinely humbly, like I know it wasn't my idea. And so you have a particular burden when you feel like God wants me to say something. And to some people, that just sounds crazy. But here's the irony. Those people are crazy. But the fact is that it's the book has been resonating tremendously around the country. I get notes from friends who say somebody sent me the book, you know, and I want to mention two things. First of all, letter to the American Church. There's a study guide. If you order it, you can see whether it's through Amazon or Socrates in the city. There's a study guide that goes with it. If you want to do it in a home group or something like that, continue the conversation, because people will read the book, they get motivated, and they say, Well, what can I do? What can I do? And they're usually doing it in a group will help you kind of figure out some things you can do. Secondly, there is a documentary film. Now, I know I've mentioned this before, but it's true. A film. documentary I shot my part in LA at right at the end of June. Directed by Michael Bay. And there were exploding churches in the background, slow motion. It's doves. It was beautiful, right? Yeah, yeah. It's kind of kind of Transformers kind of. No, it's it's a documentary. You did shoot in Hollywood based on letter to the American Church. And with this documentary, we're trying to get the message out to people who don't read books. And you know who you are. And shame on you know, but seriously, the idea that this is being turned into a gorgeous documentary. It's gorgeous. You've seen parts of it's like it's so so beautifully done. It's really exciting. And it's going to be screened in a few churches as a kind of a promo. So I'm going to be traveling around the country. But it's it's very exciting. And it gives me hope for the country. Because as you know, if you know, the thesis of the book is that the American Church is in the same place that the German church was in. At the beginning of the Nazis rise to power, we know the German church did not stand up and do the right thing in time. And as a result, evil took over that nation. And I really believe that we have an opportunity in this country, if we're willing, if we're willing to step up and understand the gravity of it. So I'm hopeful. Um, I should say also, Chris, before we get to our guests, I'm going to be traveling like crazy. Yeah, you have a really, really big skill. It's a little frightening, actually. Yeah. Thank goodness for air travel. Yeah. I'm going tomorrow to Miami. Hmm. I was just I was just there. By the way, it's terrific. It's terrific to have the Cuban coffee. You ever get those? I would love to say I would love to see you on a on a colada, which is sort of the double espresso. I'm happy to try it. I'll do it. So I'm going to Miami tomorrow. I'm speaking at a thing. By the way, everybody who wants to know my schedule to want to know if you can come to one of these events, go to Eric metaxas .com. Eric metaxas .com has my speaking schedule, or if you want to invite me, whatever. But so I'm going to Miami this week. Next week. I'm going to California. Um, there's a TP USA faith pastors conference in San Diego. I'm gonna be speaking at that. Then I'm doing a big event at the Nixon library. Uh, very excited about that. So I'll be there in California next week. And then it gets really crazy. I'm going to Iowa. I'm going to Dallas. I'm going back to Los Angeles. I'm going to Michigan Grand Rapids. Just it goes on and on and on and on. Wow. So So people say to me, Hey, Eric, what do you do for fun? The only thing I do for fun, probably is at the end of the day, when I'm exhausted, we, we what we tend to watch classic films. Oh, yeah, yeah, those are good. And Suzanne and I discovered I mean, this is the good news with like Apple TV. It's like you can find some stuff because a lot of times Turner classic movies, which I recommend, does not have something that I want to watch. They'll sunset that's the term they'll sunset movies and titles sometimes they'll have licensing for a little bit and then it kind of goes away. So it might have been there at one point. Yeah, you know, well, Turner classic movies, I mean, generally, I recommend it. But if you can't find a classic film there, like last night, they were running, you know, in the eight o 'clock hour, they were running a documentary about, you know, maybe with Fred Astaire, or Bob Hope. So and he tended neither of those great actors tended to appear in documentaries on coal mining. So you're stuck. It's hard to dance. So what did we do we found? We found some really cool stuff. But I guess I don't know where you how people find stuff. But we with Apple TV, we were able to discover just a just a trove of films we wanted to watch. So we watched, I don't know that I've ever seen the whole film. But it's one of Hitchcock's earliest films is it's 1935. It's called the 39 steps. Yes, it's a classic film. It's a classic, and it's wonderful. And so we watched that the other night. And all I can tell you is I want to watch it again. Because there's so much good stuff in it. Is it a is it? It's a thriller, right? Well, it's it's a it's a Hitchcock film. It's like a classic Hitchcock film.
A highlight from Would The Deep State Try To Do The Unthinkable Against Trump?
"We get it. You're busy. You don't have time to waste on the mainstream media. That's why Salem News Channel is here. We have hosts worth watching, actually discussing the topics that matter. Andrew Wilkow, the next D 'Souza, Brandon Tatum, and more. Open debate and free speech you won't find anywhere else. We're not like the other guys. We're Salem News Channel. Watch any time on any screen for free 24 -7 at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. This is your source for breaking news and what to make of it all. This is The Mike Gallagher Show. Former president has a very strong grassroots base and we have seen that demonstrated. Who would have thought a mugshot on a coffee mug would be a winning idea for a politician, huh? The issue for him that I would be worried about is that in 2020 he was able to stay in his basement. They're talking about masks again. Maybe he'll go back in the basement. We cannot have four more years of Donald Trump in the White House. Now from the relieffactor .com studios, here's Mike last week. And as it so happened, I didn't even realize that my scheduled vacation was up against the Labor Day holiday. So I had kind of a long break, you know, and I recharged the batteries and I got a fresh clear head and clear eyes and I am ready to go. And it's Tuesday, September the 5th. I wake up this morning, I flip on an app, listen to one of the shows that I listen to and I hear the host boldly proclaim, Trump cannot win next year. I'm looking at the phone and I'm thinking, did he just say that? In September of 2023, with a 46 point lead over Ron DeSantis, this friend of mine said on air, Trump cannot win next year. And all I could think of was, it's a good thing I'm back. I am back just in time. I am on the way. Here I am. So welcome in to a safe space. If you are a lover of Trump's policies and what was accomplished, I mean, I don't know that he can't win. I don't know that he can win. We got to let the voters start voting because when the voters in Iowa and South Carolina and New Hampshire, when they all start voting, if the votes line up with the polls, it's going to be a short party for Ron DeSantis, period. And that's when he's got to say, I'm all in for Donald Trump. And that's when I pray Donald Trump will say, he's my guy and it's going to be a Trump DeSantis 2024 ticket, which is unstoppable. And it's even better when you think about DeSantis' ability to govern as Trump is facing all these legal challenges. It's just, isn't it wild when things that some people think are complicated are really real simple. Welcome aboard. We got a lot of territory to cover. I hope you join us. The PhD weight loss and nutrition phone number is 800 -655 Mike. That's the way you join us. Press one to come on air. I missed you. I missed the show. It's so weird. I went with my dear friends, Joey and Peg Hudson to London, and we did all kinds of sightseeing. The Hudson's dragged me out to High Clear Castle, which is the scene of Downton Abbey. I've never seen Downton Abbey, but they love it. And it was fun. It's a beautiful, beautiful, big, big mansion in the countryside. We saw some shows. We ate well. We enjoyed life, enjoyed friendship. We're all facing challenges together as a country, as Americans. And we just got to remember we're in this together. You just wonder, though, how far they're going to go to try to stop Donald J. Trump. How far will they go? And I'm going to talk about something that is unthinkable, but Tucker Carlson talked about it on his show on X, and it is a horrific thing to consider. But I was watching over the weekend Adam Schiff and Bernie Sanders and all these dirty Democrats who are now talking about dusting off the 14th Amendment. Maybe that's the case. Maybe at the polls. Maybe DeSantis can't stop him. There's no way to stop this guy. We're trying to throw criminal charges at him one after the other. Maybe we could try to put him in jail. But we realize that the Constitution doesn't preclude him from running and winning, even if he's convicted of any of these charges. Maybe we can trot out the 14th Amendment, because there's something in the 14th Amendment about an insurrection. Never mind, Trump hasn't been convicted of any kind of insurrection and won't be. He's not facing insurrection charges anywhere. It's about payments to porn stars and it's about documents and it's not everything else but insurrection. But maybe, just maybe, the 14th Amendment will work. Maybe that's going to be our ace in the hole. If that doesn't work, what's left? Well, Tucker Carlson said it, I think, over the weekend, a horrific, evil, terrifying prospect. I've prayed about this all weekend because they didn't even know whether to bring it up to you. But Tucker put it out there. Millions and millions of people are watching Tucker. I think this was during a conversation he had, if I'm not mistaken, with Dave Portnoy.
A highlight from Prioritizing Academic Achievement in the Education System
"You couldn't pay me a million dollars a year to do his job, Mike. Why? If I'm not getting shot at or assaulted, if I actually do my job, there's a potential that I lose my job and get arrested. Why would you want to do that job? And then we wonder why we have less police officers. Welcome to another Financial Guys podcast. I'm Mike Hayflick, along with Mike Speraza. Mike, back after a beautiful Labor Day weekend. Yeah. It seems like the summer finally turned into summer here in the last week of the, uh, you know, no school times because it's been weird all summer, rain, warm, cold, windy. And then this weekend was pretty much perfect from Friday on. Beautiful. Yeah. I mean, I'm thinking middle of August to like middle of October that might be the best weather maybe in the country. I mean, it's calm. It's like 55, 60 at night, 75, maybe even 80. It's gorgeous. I don't know why more people don't come here in the summertime because it's really a great place to be. I do feel bad for kids though, because they're going back to school and 90 degrees schools and that's never fun. Yeah. The heat wave comes at the worst time. Yeah. Feel for those kids. 90 degrees in a school with no air conditioning is not fun. I remember. Well, they're just going to have to suck it up. I remember walking to school and like three foot snow uphill, both ways, six miles, eight miles home. I mean, I don't know how that could happen, right? Yeah. But they'll remember, but in the wintertime when it's not 90, they will, well, I'll be going, ah, we wish it was hot and humid again. That's right. So, um, so football season is upon us, Mike, um, massive upsets in college football already. Um, Colorado led by Deion Sanders and his son at QB, um, upsets Texas Christian university, TCU, a ranked team. And then last night, Duke, Duke, who's known for basketball, right? Yep. They ended up beating Clemson of all teams. Um, so are you into college football too? I am. I'm actually all in on the Deion Sanders train right now, too. I love what he's done with that program. I love his, his fire. He's never scared of anything. Uh, I love that. That was, that game was a lot of fun. I don't know if you watched that live, Mike, that was, um, back and forth. I think 80 points were scored in the game. It was wild kick returns, interceptions, touchdowns. I mean, you name it. They had it in that game. It was awesome. What's cool. I think, and I'm not saying like, you know, losing sucks, but some teams have lost for so long. And then to see a coach, the Clemson coach with his head down and he's just, he's shocked. That his team can possibly lose that his team could possibly be throwing picks. And, and, you know, at the very key moments in the game, like I like that because then it shows other losing teams, like with, you know, the history of losing that, yes, if you just work your ass off, you know, come together, get the chemistry, get a leader like a Deion Sanders to come in and say, I believe in you. Don't let anyone in the news tell you otherwise. I love that. Well, that's why I like him. And, you know, to bring it to politics, like it's, it's, it's, it's the Trump model, right? Of just I'm going to tell you how I feel and I'm going to, I'm going to prove what I say. And it's fun, right? I mean, you, you need, there's going to be a lot of people that hate him out there. I'm not one of them. I think he's awesome. But he's got that the bravado, right? Like I'm not scared of anything. I'm going to tell you how I feel. And you're right, Mike, we're going to go from zero to a hundred and it's going to take us five minutes instead of taking us 50 years. And he did that, right? I mean, not to say they're going to win a national championship this year, but they're going to compete every week, right? And this is a program that has stunk for the better part of two to three decades, right? So they're going to be, they're going to be pretty good. We're going to be fun to watch. And it's going to be fun to see the show of Deion Sanders. Cause I love it. And his son is a stud too, by the way, his quarterback son is a stud. All right. Now how about your grand Island Vikings? Yeah. Yeah. 35 nothing win on Friday. So that's a good start to the season. Nice. Very good. We'll see. We'll see what happens here. North Tonawanda coming up this week, but, beat up Newport 35 -0 last Friday night or this Friday night, I should say a couple of days ago.

A highlight from Whats My Line?
"There are people in this country who work hard every day, not for fame or fortune do they strive, but the fruits of their labor are worth more than their pay. Portions of the following program may contain pre -recorded material. You are listening to the best of the Dennis Prager Show. Hello my friends, it's Labor Day and I'm laboring. Dennis Prager here my and tradition on Labor Day is to ask you about your labor, your work, what do you do for a living, and I have been just fascinated by your ways of making a living. We don't realize, none of us realize, because we all live in a small world. It's impossible not to. You know X number of people, you have X number of relatives, and that's pretty much it. Now we don't live in a small world intellectually or philosophically and the like, but we do in so it comes as a fascinating surprise and it's quintessentially American the ways in which Americans make a buck. So what I do on Labor Day is I invite you to call in and tell me what you do and it could be absolutely prosaic. It doesn't mean you drill for oil in Tunisia. It doesn't have to be exotic. If you are in a profession or a line of work which many others are in, that's fine. First of all, I love to talk to people, which I would think would be a fairly common characteristic among talk show hosts, but it isn't. It isn't, interestingly. Off the air, a lot of these guys are quite introverted and are not people -people. It's not an attack at all, just a personality. But I am a people -person. I'm a people -person. And I love to talk to people. I talk to people, as you know, I've told you, in elevators, anywhere. And so I love to ask people about their work. 1 -8 Prager 776, which translates digitally into... Translates digitally into... This is the official one on LesWatt? Yes. Oh, really? He prefers... My prefers producer this to... Oh, I see. Well, they're both good. I don't know if I have a preference. Isn't there even a third? There are several. There are several. No, no, no. I understand that. I understand, but there's no reason not to use them. So dear Francesca Morris, who has volunteered her time to work on this Labor Day along with the Induplicable McConnell, Sean whose name is spelled... That was composed by yours truly, incidentally. There are areas where I just don't like to boast, but that is one I am really proud of. That is the only piece of music I have ever composed. I didn't orchestrate it, I didn't sing it, but I composed it. So what do you do for a living? It's Labor Day, and it's an appropriate question to ask, and I have a lot of fun. So do you. Are you listening? And it is, among other things you will see, an ode to America. Because unless crushed, the spirit of people, and this would be true anywhere. It's a values issue. It's not a DNA issue. There's no American DNA. And so unless crushed, which is what happens in the vast majority of the countries of the world, people just will do whatever they do. All right, so let's begin with Ambler, Pennsylvania, and Hugh. Hello, Hugh. Dennis Prager. Welcome on Labor Day. Hello, Dennis. Happy Labor Day to you, and I'm very thrilled that I'm number one on the list today. Thank you. Well, that is something. That is something. But I was just going to... I work in a grocery store, okay? A supermarket, if you will. I work for Whole Foods Markets, and I work in the store in North Wales, Pennsylvania. Right. I'll say hello when I'm in Philly. Oh, very good. I know you come here often. Yep. And I'm a baker. I work as a baker there. I go in early in the morning. What time? I usually get there around 4 30 a .m. Go on and wait. So Whole Foods, which I've been to many times, but I didn't realize... So the bakery bakes what? Well, we do actual scratch baking in the bakery. We take items. We don't just open boxes and bake the stuff. It's made from scratch. And what's the stuff you bake? Breads? Well, we do breads, but mostly we do cakes and pastries and what you would find in a neighborhood retail bakery. I thought... Maybe I have it confused with another store chain, but doesn't Whole Foods tend... Exactly. See, that's it. Yes. But the nice thing about me, I'm a fourth generation baker. Wow. Okay. I'm 59 years old, so I've been doing this since I was 10 years old with my father. And what the nice thing is about working with Whole Foods is the ingredients I get to work with. Like, we use only real butter. We don't use any of the artificial short means or anything. It's all real... Let alone God forbid margarine. They got God forbid margarine. I got two, two, two. So that's one of the nice things about it. But I know like little retail bakeries, they can't afford to use ingredients like that. But at Whole Foods, we can and we still do. And that's why people say, well... All right. Now it's my turn to ask you some questions. First, about the hours. So if you report to Whole Foods at 4 .30, what time do you get up? Oh, I get up around 3 a .m. And what time is your work day over? I usually work till about 1 o 'clock in the afternoon. Okay. All right. So hold on. Wait. So you come home and you take a nap? Take a little nap. I usually... When I'm napping, I have you on the radio by being... You know, that's very sweet. So either I help you nap or I don't help you nap. No, but I get to listen to you every day because I usually leave like around 1 o 'clock. That's nice. really No, no, it is really nice. So what time do you go to sleep? Well, I try to get to bed by at least 9. It doesn't always work that way. Right. Especially with the Republican convention, I was really struggling. Right. And I thought, why don't we get the big speeches like at 10 .30 at night on the East Coast? I was like amazed by that. Well, they have to do that. Both parties have to do that. So let me ask you this. Are you married? Yes, I'm married. I have two children. So I assume your wife doesn't go to bed at 9? No, she doesn't. So this is just the way it's worked out? It's always worked out that way. It's very good. Like in other words, when she comes to bed, she's very quiet. She doesn't come in there and wake me up or anything. But we do have our struggles with that. Yeah, look, everybody has struggled with something, but you're employed. Yes, I am employed now.

All every single part of it could be changed. We we do that all the time. We did it with elite illegal alien. Got 'cause like change it. It's too harsh.

What what piece of shit man came up with that anyway. Getting pregnant turned out to be a lot harder than i had anticipated. After getting blood drawn several times it was determined that i was just not going to be able to get pregnant on my own. I had two doctors. Tell me that it'd be a cold day in hell before i would be able to conceive. Naturally i mean i'm paraphrasing. But that was basically. The i had three eggs left two of them had dementia and the third one failing kidney and heart disease. It was devastating. I was put on thirty plus vitamins a day and was scheduled to meet with a fertility specialist. It was gonna cost us. Tens of thousands of dollars and i'd have to inject myself with all sorts of medicines and hormones to be able to get pregnant.

You know that'd be speaking about what's happening in the nfl. As i mentioned before and my Later segments in terms of the nfl. Take the first four weeks. Take the first six weeks just to kind of evaluate. It's kind of put down to see what's going down but Waste my time and the nfl were preseason. And for a lotta these teams in college football the first couple of games after maybe a couple of teams in week one player ranked team or something like that. And you know now. We're going to be speaking about the georges and the alabama's and the oklahoma's and the after they play oregon the ohio state. This is where they're gonna go through their preseason and they're gonna start playing schools that are completely inferior in terms of talent is concerned.

"They can't stop to lane on with any type of consistency. What they're going to do with this what they're gonna do with this offense from alabama so it's it's a it's a long season men. It's a long season. And i've always mentioned it before just like the nfl taking my time in terms of who's going to be doing what who's going to be doing this. How many times in september had we in college football anointed a lock or out die with a huge lead or a strong candidate for the heisman trophy by the end of september and then by the end of october. He's nowhere near the discussion of a heisman trophy. How many times have we talked about a team who hey wait a minute now. We don't know why didn't see this coming along this that and the other this that and then all of a sudden after the fifth game when they play wanted to rank teams and get their asses blown out. We never hear from them again as being serious contenders. So it's it's it's fluid but men you take a look at the consistency of alabama. You take a look about how great they are then. As i mentioned before mercer florida southern mississippi mississippi texas a inev- mississippi state tennessee. Lsu new mexico. Arkansas auburn we. We used to think that lsu could give him a give them a game but it's not what it used to be. We see now at orange iran. He's now five and six. The last eleven games a little bit different. When you don't have job radian joe borough as you're passing coordinator and quarterback you don't have john jefferson and those talented receivers randy mosses kid at the tight end position and of course. Lsu is always going to be strong on defense even though ucla pushed them around Al physical demand the running game in allowed that that offense to click and put up over thirty points. And then you throw in all of the off the field nonsense that's been happening at. Lsu football program. Now we know that lsu just like everything else in that state is morally bankrupt when it comes to morals and fibers and doing the right thing. Such just see will wade. Just say the fact that they had less miles at their coach. So i mean the fact that you had players on walking around on campus. Who's being accused of sexual assault. And everything i mean for. Lsu in for folks of louisiana louisiana at least the percentage of folks in baton rouge really. Don't care about that stuff as long as you're winning football and basketball games but if you're not winning football game like an or gerard is not doing. You can't lose to ucla if you're lsu. That's now no that's unacceptable as inexcusable and that will not be tolerated so we don't know that order on could be fighting for his existed. This could be a lose in your fire type of game. When lsu goes to alabama if these things keep up for coach oh who just a couple of years ago one himself a national championship. But who who out there georgia ohio state. Ucla texas am notre dame cincinnati. Oklahoma iowa does clemson rebound and get back to where they can challenge. I dunno that's going to be going to be an interesting storyline throughout the season. But as right now i'll say it. The most dominant team in north america far is team.

One the clemson tigers. Where do we go from here. Man what are we talking about where we're going. What your thoughts. Your opinions your feelings. One of your inner emotions was speaking when thinking about that game between georgia and clemson from clemson side of things. My first thought was thank. Jesus if you're clemson fan. Thank jesus behold jehovah whoever you pray to that. They play in the ac. You take a look at that remaining schedule for clemson south carolina state georgia tech at nc. State boston college at syracuse. At pittsburgh florida state at louisville ugo yukon wake forest in south carolina. I know there's no room for error of can't lose two games. you can't lose another game. Which would mean two games that you lost. The season is still expect to compete for a championship or a spot in the semi finals. But on you take a look at that schedule what many people are saying at. Nc state might be the best chance for clemson to be upset. But you take a look at the rest of that schedule. Maybe florida state. Now if they're playing at clemson. So i don't see it not at louisville may be. Don't say it so. Where are we going from here with with clemson. Their lack of offensive weapons and the lack of improvement on the offense of line was alarming. Man this is one of the elites in college football. Who were getting their ask kicked a front. Wow while hey look man. you can talk about. Alabama's recruiting class. All you want to. And they get the studs and they get the great players as far the skill positions. Especially when you talk about wide receivers now take a look and check at the offensive line. Is he only four five star recruits. Those guys have and see why those guys to see how many offensive linemen are playing in the nfl. Right now over the past five years that often the mind who played at the alabama checkout. How many first and second round draft picks over the last couple of years who are playing in the nfl came from alabama an offensive line. I cannot believe the offensive line for clemson was so inept was so overwhelmed with so dominated and destroyed by georgia eight lament georgia's got a very strong defence. The front no doubt about it but hey mental looking at look at that defensive line. Look at that defensive front for georgia that there's not there's not five or six first round top twenty. Nfl picks going you know lined up across them for them to get mold for them to get humiliated and for them to get beat up like that speaking about the clemson offensive line and the lack of offensive weapons.

"I'm melissa harris perry and you're listening to the takeaway. Thanks for joining us. Now take a listen first of all. Everybody grab a math. That's the voice of beat becker. Now you're gonna meet her in a moment but you will hear her suggestion to grab a map throughout the show today because we are bringing you stories from several different locations. So do you have your map. Good now look at the western. United states were colorado borders utah. Which is hugged by nevada to its west in arizona to its south followed that western edge of arizona as kisses california all the way into the bordering nation of mexico and youth distract the hardest working river in the country the colorado river the colorado river is responsible for ninety percent of water for las vegas more than eighty percent for tucson and big portions of the supply for los angeles and denver the colorado reverse supplies water for forty million people. Irrigate six million acres of land and generates were four thousand megawatts of hydropower from its dams the colorado fuels one point four trillion dollar annual economy. And without it. None of the major cities of the southwestern united states could even exist also. The colorado river is drying up the colorado feeds lake mead. The nation's largest man-made reservoir and lake mead is now only thirty percent that's the lowest level since it was created nearly one hundred years ago last week the federal government declared the first ever water shortage for the colorado river and mandatory. Cutbacks began immediately. The effects will be far reaching joining me today to explain how we got here. And what's ahead is beat becker. An attorney with the navajo tribal utility authority. Beata thank you for being here my pleasure. It's an honor and also with me. Is brad udal. Senior water and climate scientists. At colorado state university prayed welcomed. The takeaway was great to see you and beat that. Also now brad before we get into all of the details. Can you just begin by helping our listeners. To understand what is the importance of the colorado river to this region and also maybe more broadly so the river supplies water to forty million different americans in seven states and their two nations and importantly no thirty tribes that rely on this water. It goes to every major city in the american southwest. It's ninety percent. Las vegas is supply. Fifty percent of phoenix fifty percent of denver. Four and a half million acres of your gated agd depend on this river. It's really hard to overstate. How important it is this part of the country brad. Walk back a bit. How did we get here. I mean you can go back a hundred years if you want to win the colorado river compact was signed in nineteen twenty two. And perhaps that's the logical place to start here. The river was allocated at that time between the upper basin. Four states of colorado wyoming utah new mexico and the lower basin arizona california and nevada importantly there were a number of players not at the table when the river was allocated. The environment was not the table. The tribes were not at the table. Recreation was not at the table and so what they did back then was using frankly. Pretty crummy data over allocated the river and this didn't matter four close to a hundred years college eight years. It didn't matter because we didn't have the capacity to actually take all that water out of the river but starting around two thousand we actually did have it and something else happened. In two thousand which is climate change started to affect the floater so since two thousand flow is actually down twenty percent so between overuse and a reduction in water supplies were now at a critical crunch point. And what's happened since two thousand the two largest reservoirs. The united states late pell lake me. There were ninety percent full flash forward to now they're thirty percent full. We've drained sixty percent of them. That's two years worth of flow and we're on our way frankly to drain them completely. If we're not careful here so there's a whole series of challenges around this including the tribal one which is figuring out how to do right by them. Many of whom have never had a water right and there's an enormous set issues here result and to maybe you can also sort of dig it on the same question and help us to understand on the critical significance particularly to indigenous communities. So we're talking about drinking water. Agar water all types of water use plus energy. Use the reason. I point that out is because for many tribal communities navajo included. We have a regrettably a high poverty rate. The hydro power is the cheapest power we can buy so in. Hydropower gets threatened and then we have to go out and purchase higher cost power were just further impacting. The challenges that our people are facing all at a time of copen. Nineteen one practical issue is that there's still a high level water and security among tribal people living in the basement for instance on an abomination. It's estimated thirty to forty percent of homes lack piped water. Which is one of the reasons. There was such a high outbreak. Cove in nineteen in indian communities of the other aspects of raise is the spiritual religious and cultural nature of the river that is also impacted so just cultural core of many many people who live in this area forever. Maybe give us even just one example so that our listeners can understand if they're not in these communities sort of what that sense of something that was forever being critically threatened with that means first of all everybody grab a map and look at the border. Between arizona and california there are five tribes along that stretch of the river who have long lived there and one of them is named the coca pa tribe and but the way they tell. Their story is is the center of their university. The river the center of everything they believe in is the river so when the river dries up or away. You're taking out kind of the center of there being but what. I also want to emphasize is. It's not just true for people. Living in the united states as brad mentioned it also serves mexico and so the river for long time has dried up in mexico so not only. Does it affect the what we modern economics which are so critical to daily life but it also affects just that center of.
