Motorsport Games CEO on Going Public, Growth of SimRacing as Esports Genre

"Hello and welcome into another episode of the E Sports Network podcast home ownership with Reuters. As always. I'm your host my dreams. And today we're talking to Motorsport games CEO Dimitri Costco. Once again, you remember Dimitri from our episode recorded off summer talking about Lamont Dimitri. Welcome back to the show. Thanks, man. Child was a pleasure to speak to you. I'm so happy to have you back for people who miss that first episode merseburg games is a leading developer publisher a t Sports ecosystem creator for titles like NASCAR Lamont and more r a c e Sports had a massive explosion back in Spring as they were the first sports him to get virtual competitions running after the Sportage. No doubt. They were also the most popular NASCAR events consistently do over 1 million viewers on linear TV a mark very few if any Esports competitions have ever reached in January motor sport games with live on NASDAQ. Be trading under the ticker msgm the company opened up for trading in a share price of $20 and climbed all the way up to 35 on the day of the IPO. The stock is currently trading for a price of about $27 as I look at it off Wednesday, February 21st on the show. We're going to be talking about y r a c e Sports have worked out so well by now made sense to take the company public and how they'll affect the company's goals going forward, but first to meet you you took me on this, so I want to make sure this is clear to the audience as well. What is the difference between iRacing and what motor sport games does sure. Thank thanks so much for bringing that up. I think it is an important differentiation to put out there. So I racing is a is a great platform somebody we will regard but they are very very different than what motor sport games does home. So I racing is essentially not really a video game. It's it's more of a training simulation a lot of drivers professional drivers on their downtime wage. Not actually racing they're brushing up their skills using this type of simulation. So this is not a game that has essentially licensed content. This is not the game where all skill levels are welcome. So I racing is is literally easiest way to put it is is a training simulation. If you're trying to become a driver learn a track and so on Motorsport games focuses on all skill levels, right? We're not just on gaming PCs. We are on regular PCS on consoles on a mobile. So that means we are the official games for example for NASCAR. So when you do go to your local store and you pick up a NASCAR brand the game that's motor sport games. That is something that we're putting out their accessible to all skill levels of all ages. All our games are rated E, and I think important differentiation between a In something that's accessible to all versus something that's accessible to something to train on is that the equipment that you use right training simulation you need steering. Will you need pedal you need a seat you need all types of stuff you need to do a set-up of it as you get going. When you pick up a motor sport games game, you literally just either download it on your Xbox or put it this and you play station and just run on a on a controller have fun with your family. Right? It's more of a fun type of mass-market product compared to something that that folks used as a as a serious training tool. So I would say that that's the quickest differentiation and there's a bunch more that we could get into if you like them. I think that makes a lot of sense. I see those two complained that I was even complaining about. I tell you told me hey, this is what this is. And here's what we do. Yeah, basically sound of the difference of like this is what a tech goalie simulator looks like it menus offices versus here's FIFA so a big difference there when you really break it down exactly exactly and and I told the different stories right our products bring out kind of the soul of the of let's keep using NASCAR just for for example, right so we focus on life on gameplay environment the things that surround you as you race, right, so it's not more than just going on a track and replicating, you know, proper physics and things like that. That's what training simulations for ours as you go out there on the track you have fun before you get on the track you experience what Nascar world is like write something that off. Training simulation platforms don't focus on don't care for cuz they really only focus on bettering driving skills. We don't focus on bettering driving skills. We're focused on bringing fun to the masses them for the gameplay is is actually different there for the surrounding environment is very different. Therefore. We're available on all types of platforms including mobile, right? You're not necessarily going to get a better driver by driving the racing game in Mobile. So

Illinois Democrats celebrate monumental criminal justice law while GOP, police push back

"LaShawn Ford. Democrat for Illinois, Eighth District is pushing back against criticism that labels as rushed or hurried a new criminal justice reform law. They was passed by lawmakers during the waning hours of lame duck session, then signed into law today by Governor Brisker. No, I didn't come through. Nothing happened and this session that lame duck session that we haven't been working on for decades, the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police criticized the reform bill as anti police. Lamont Police chief Mark Matan says they're especially opposed to a provision that eventually eliminates cash bail statewide in which he says they were initially open to discussing. But they had to do two things.

Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont urges Biden to "give us some transparency" on vaccine rollout

"Joins us from Stanford. Good morning to you. Good morning, Margaret Governor. We've talked about your state being a now performer in terms of actually getting vaccine supply out to constituents. And I wonder what your advice to the Biden administration would be. Should they continue prioritizing states based on population or reward good behavior by giving more vaccine to states that can actually put it in arms. Well, I could tell you they gave us the previous administration gave us 50,000 additional doses because we were doing a good job of getting people vaccinated on a timely basis. But I think what's most important right now for the Biden administration is give us some transparency. Let us know what you can expect next week. What we can expect next month, So we know how much to expand our infrastructure. But we're ready to get people vaccinated. You just get us the vaccines. Well, we know the White House said this week that they will boost supply about 16% Give you three weeks. Notice of what you're about to get in, said just the one week that you were getting into the prior administration. But then I saw that, too. Health systems in your state have been canceling appointments for shots and arms for the coming week. So I'm wondering, Is there still a problem with federal supply? I don't think so. They've done a relatively good job of getting us the vaccines when we need it. Our hospital systems and friendly qualified health centers. They do things by appointment that clears up a lot of the confusion you see in some other states. I do know that one or two of these systems maybe over promised and had more people They had vaccines were watching that very carefully. Do it by appointment, Clear up the confusion, Get people vaccinated.

Nobody casualties america's war on the vulnerable from ferguson to flint and beyond and Another great book of the classroom and the cell conversations on black life in america which he co authored with A mob abujamal. Mark actually has a new book out That his publisher sent me earlier. I believe it's out now to the public it's called. We still hear pandemic policing protests and possibility and so. I'm very pleased to welcome. Marc lamont hill to rumble mark. Welcome thanks man is good to hear your voice. It's good to be here. I'm really excited. Well let me say i. You are such a a wonderful lightning rod for truth and And to inspire people to turn off the tv and get up and do something and you have been this way for for many many years but i you know before we get into. I want to talk about what we're going to do. Now with trump gone and all the other things that face us and how we build on this incredible mass movement that took to the streets this year and something that that I think most of us Really haven't seen in our lifetime or if you're old enough to remember you haven't seen it since the civil rights days for antiwar days and and And this this year became larger than either of those in terms of the actual numbers of people in the streets. But i i wanna talk to people. If you're not familiar with marc lamont hill but you you have seen him. You've seen him on all the cable news in fact Had a big at cnn and on and at some point going to say it was maybe once a year or two ago. Two years. Two years ago cnn announced that they were firing him. It was a stunning moment. I couldn't believe it and marc lamont hill was fired because he had an opinion he had an opinion and enemy in a belief in the tragedy of what was an has been happening to the palestinian people for many many years mark. Why don't you tell so. I don't botch explained to us. Why you got the boot at cnn. Yeah it I i can. I can tell you what happened. They can draw their own conclusions. Simply because i never got an explicit answer from cnn but For years i have been Advocate for palestinian of self-determination palestinian. Human rights I have as a journalist. Activist tried to create space for a conversation about justice and i actually was coming back from a delegation that i led to palestine. I taken a group of activists artists to To the west bank And to destroy slim and also to to israel to see to see things on the ground. And i flew back a little early because i was invited to the united nations to speak at the international day of solidarity with the palestinian people and i sat down And in front of the un. And i gave a speech calling for justice. I ironic. I normally give speeches off the top of the head. But i'm gonna write this one down so that. I don't get in any trouble and i i. I appear to the universal declaration of human rights it was it was the anniversary not just of Of palestinians referred to as the neck ka or the greek catastrophe. That happened in one thousand nine hundred forty eight seventieth anniversary of the founding of the state of israel but also palestinians referred to as the neck bow but also the anniversary of the universal declaration of human rights and so i appeal to the declaration of human rights as a way of showing how we value human rights global community on the one hand but we deny them to palestinians on the other And at the end of the speech I said that we must do. Justice requires injustice requires a free palestine from the river to the sea of course When i said that i was saying i was doing two things one. I was calling for a one state solution. I believe in a singular democratic secular state for all inhabitants of historic palestine. That means the people who are currently citizens of israel people who are currently citizens of israel as as arab citizens of palestinian citizens. Who are jews of i. I believe in a single democratic one person. One vote state for everybody. I don't think anyone should leave. I don't think anyone should be harmed. But we need democratic state And and and i was also pointing to the fact that there's injustice not just in the west bank or just in gaza are not just in the diaspora but also even in the state of israel where twenty percent of palestinians Or rather twenty percent of the citizenry are palestinian. And i wanted to call point out. The inequality weaken get justice. In all of these places. We can come together and do this. The speech was based on. Facts was based on data and so they didn't impeach the speech they said The last six words from the river to the sea Were intolerable that they were Violent they were they were the same whereas used by hamas and therefore i was echoing Or maybe even showing solidarity with. It was the most extreme sort of interpretations of what i said which couldn't be further from the truth of but this was kind of dishonest narrative that was being created by people who want to keep the status quo and so the day after the speech again. I thought i did good I got a standing ovation at the un thinking. I'm having a good day The next morning. I can call from cnn and they said that. Unfortunately we heard speech at the un and. We can't have your own ariza contributor anymore. I said why they said because your speech is inconsistent with our values And i said can you explain what your values are a wet specifically where you know where we're specifically the inconsistency is they said no we can't elaborate any further just you don't represent our values and that was the end of it in an at that moment not only was i. dismissed from cnn. But i nearly fired from temple. University nearly lost my ten. Although material professor with an endowed chair full professor. All the things. You're supposed to temple also told me that I was The trustees run a letter of censure. I'm the first person in the history of the university to get a letter of condemnation And the chair of the board of trustees said that it was i showed. My speech was a rant. That was the most disgusting The most morally atrocious thing he'd ever heard was funniest man. Who said this about me. Is bill cosby's personal attorney. Who bill cosby. Who is also a temple alum and was on the board. He also was never received a letter of condemnation from temple university. It just gives you a sense of what we have is.

We certainly see what's happening around the country. We've got to reset the equation. So the mayor this morning talked about what he said, is a gathering storm of rising coronavirus positivity rates in the city and beyond. The mayor said he is expecting that there are new restrictions coming on indoor dining and gyms in his words in the next week or two in New York City. Mayor closed the schools on that 3% threshold.

We see that as black culture. She got the ABBOTS US right. It saying is that your? Botox is you're breaking down the English language? Right, and then we're surprised. Okay. It's a dialect of the English language, but it's not proper English right, and then were surprised when seventy five percent of black boys can't pass a reading exam and then WANNA blame the government right. Some types in California was his government government doing something wrong. What are we doing wrong I? DO WE DO ANYTHING WRONG? So you've hit a lot of a lot of spots Pick a few. I. what I WANNA, go I don't WanNa. Get too far off of this. I still think you're missing the point of the affirmative action. Thing, which is our? They're not. They're not addressed the the the early literacy stuff the reading the dropout stuff right My argument isn't again that people should be put in schools where there's a mismatch, I agree as professor I can tell you I. Encounter stood I've encountered students who are mismatch for the institution for lots of reasons. It's fun to teach someone who's mismatch for the institution. That's the first thing one the second thing I would say is. It's. Institutional mismatches happen across the board near plenty of people who don't meet the average of the school. It's not just black people. For example legacies oftentimes don't meet the match. Athletes often don't meet that the match who else I mean, it's legacies. Donors in athletes are. Three key examples George Bush people with their George Bush was dumb. George W W wasn't on his exit. One standard deviations deviation. The average Americans right, but his to below average Yale student. Did. He was just fine. He turned up just fine. He is smart. Enough got an email. He did just fine. black people are no different right I would rather give that kind of. Hookup to use the lack of a mimimum, he's the word hookup. I would rather have that type of relationship for a student in poverty and someone who worked hard, then someone who's benefit of legacy and privilege, I'd rather have none I gotcha. Yeah, and I and I. Hear You what I'm saying is from that point because no one. No one is complaining about the athlete complaining about the the legacy knows something about the person who's who who built the building that we're standing in. You know in the university We're only talk about that, but I wanna get into what about this I'm just saying I think it's an important point. We only talk about this in the context of black people when it's very much in when they're very much, not the ones who the biggest. Regis examples of institutional mismatch the second thing is. When we think about black in from again the goal when we do it, mission is to say. How can we have a diverse student body? Because diversity, itself is an institutional asset. So if this is the average sat scores fourteen hundred, and there's a black kid from Compton. WHO HAS A one thousand? I might say this person, probably not a great fit for the school that diversity being an asset studies show that that when when groups are are are heterogeneous we rather more dynamic and creative solutions able to problem solve better that we learn from each other and that we're better prepared for the easy sound like one of those leftists fluffs. How do you measure that we measure that? Hey, what's the test to see if diversity? Task oriented problem solving with groups and they they they did him with homogeneous groups. I and groups that are all the same tend to arrive at solutions faster. If we're all the same because we tend to think the same, we tend to have the same kind of ways of solving problems, but what's interesting is when we're heterogeneous. It takes longer to get there but. We. Offer diverse and creative solutions outcome, so you could ask what your what your goal the school is. We could have a debate about you know what you think the outcome. Should I think that? There's no such thing as versus just because you look different than me. Does it mean that we're diverse? We could be from the exact same neighborhood that I agree me. I think what the one thing that students that would benefit the most from what the don't have in college campuses, intellectual diversity, so this right here would is much better use for college university to Black. We look alike. You know we're the same color, but you and I are totally opposite playing fields, and this is a positive connotation, people just to listen to and to hear this great. In college campuses. What's a predictor of that right so? If I have people from different racial backgrounds different class backgrounds we can say the supreme court is diverse, but they all went to Harvard and Yale Law School for the for the for the majority, not all literally my point right, so I'm not saying the only diversity racial diversity. I'm not saying the only diversity should be gender diversity I'm just saying that these factors I wouldn't want if I. if I went to school where all the men have, the highest sat scores I would think even if women has low, sat scores or men Hesselink, Lorez gender diversity, but again I'm also saying that your idea of merit is based on this conception concedes that the metric itself is correct and I'm asking you to consider based on all the data that the sat in these other metrics aren't actually good predictors of. How will you do anyway? They're not the SAT. If, the golden sat is is a measure. Your aptitude, right? Your your ability doesn't really now is just not supposed to be like okay. There's one hundred things you have to know. If one hundred of win right to say, this is a person's preparedness for college. It actually doesn't The data shows that it doesn't predict well. How will you'll do in? College doesn't pick what your GPA is going to be. There's no correlation between strong correlation between your GPA between your graduation, graduation rates and such. So that's what I'm saying even. Has Based on. You know it would be like if that seven footer over there. If if they decided to try out for basketball, the only thing they try this out for with three pointers, right I might make more three pointers. Seven feet tall. Just give him the ball. You don't get every in so the metric itself may benefit my skill set, versus that skill set and I'm and I'm saying we have a more robust assessment skills, and so what I find is not that we are meeting people who are I like people who are far off the mark in terms of admission. They're people who are already within the zone and we're saying. Let's let race be a factor, too, so yes, I may have I'm just pick arbitrary number. I may have thirteen hundred and the white guy may have a thirteen fifty and I may have a three point nine. Nine he may have three point nine four, and you may say well. His numbers are higher..

Well I think you have to decide if you care what the dominant media narrative is, and also. What again what political work does that media narrative because I'm not? I don't also want to pretend that the rebellions that we've been seeing around the country aren't significant. Aren't valuable, you know. I just don't think they can be the only game in town. Right you if you're if if if think rebellions are good. These autonomous cities, the burning and looting of black community, and the black black communities, homes, and burning down of the neighborhoods, lockable, crying onscreen, saying that their neighborhood being destroyed. You see that as a good know what I'm saying is that I see a movement of Brian's around the country. As good now we can discuss tactically whether each specific act is wise. Tell me how it's got. Let's let's let's take Minneapolis the first one when they burn down the city. Tell me how you that and said. This is good, so one thing is again. Black death is so ordinary in this country right because we do it the whole time to ourselves and blood, the sole owner in this country regards how we. We can. We can analyze why in in a moment, but. Getting the nation to stop and pay attention offer requires the spectacle, the spectacle of violence. Right I'M NOT GONNA killing people not talking to do harm to people. Even my tearing up a store, right? You look at Martin Luther King. Just one example Martin Luther King Leverage this spectacle of violence to get America to pay attention. The only difference is Martin. King said we're going to strategize so that we could be right. Go other people up, but we're getting right I mean the pettus bridge was was the idea being bridge was. The if we protest here that they will that that these police will come in harm us, and that American tragedy because it showed America at the problem was the police. Do you think the spectrum right now? Showing America the problem is the problem. It's not when you look at these riots. It is not this is the exact opposite of Martin Luther King Strategy the exact opposite Martin Luther King said we're going to go in and be peaceful and we're GonNa Watch them send dogs on us. They're going to set their fire hose on us. And when the whole world sees these clips, they're going to realize that the problem is rate are white people that are racist and the and the governments that are allowing this tarragon. Okay? When he crushed that, it was a brilliant strategy right now, black America, strategy his. We're going to go in and be violent. We're GONNA. Go in and loot. TV's and then America's GonNa, Think. Black lives matter is a terrorist unit, and that's exactly what. It is it is were pushing back I one I'm pushing back against look good. This is not making people look good the the first thing. Push back against this this idea that the only time we engage in the type of resistance if we're if our bodies are the ransom for justice. King Strassel I'm with you, I'm not I'm saying it's the exact same tactic. The over strategy is still to use violence and the spectacle. Look to justice. Right and you're like what I'm hearing you say is that's cool. If the dog biting us in the Spring Oh I'm saying you're not the message. You're going to deliver as epochal or violent, so using the idea and you have already said that you thought Martin. Luther King Had A. A good strategy and I agree with you. What we are doing is he's Alyssa strategy, so we are showing that black people are violent that black people lose that block. People Rob Kill another that is, that is what is being shown how you were winning with that narrative I. Don't know I. Don't know right now is thinking I'm so glad we took those TV's at a target and burned down target because now people this is. The thing is even when was the tax that was shown? No, no, I'll tell you, but when we when we talk about king, right because we this king in marching and sixty five, but there's also what's happening in Watson, sixty five. What's happening in Detroit and sixty seven? Aren't the same rebellions you're talking about are having around. As well, let's. Hear thought though my point is. It's never a single strategy did there's always multiple things happening right? There are people calling for defunding right now, and there are people on the streets, just like king, there are people who there are people who are marching getting beaten by police, and there are people who who are tearing up Detroit and what I'm saying. We need multiple strategies now I agree with you I would love I would love if I gotta say bookstore. In Philadelphia and whole. Bunch of stores on my block got got smashed. Sneaker store got rated.

"Police officers are at and a half times are likely to be killed by black man than the other way around why aren police honestly protest by police officers against black men would make more sense. Times it wouldn't and this goes to the question you asked about why we're not protesting black on black crime. I. There's prisons are filled with white people. For killing people, prisons are filled with black people now. Something that they're not I'm not saying everyone who does my point is that black people have a good faith expectation that will go to jail for for doing crime. There's not there's no narrative. The black people don't want to jail for stuff, right? The problem is with law enforcement when it's the other way round when law enforcement does crime against us as the daily ritual of excessive force against us We now don't have a good faith belief that they will be arrested that we. We fired in the arrested that they'll be tried and if they are tried, we have no belief that they'll be found guilty. Even if the evidence is overwhelming, and so what we're protesting against is a system that is supposed to be honest and fair, but isn't it? Doesn't you'll just outcomes so part of why when when somebody in my neighborhood get shot in any ca guy gets carry on handcuffs. We're not protesting, not because we're not outraged by it, but protesting doesn't actually stop person from killing person. Be Right. The protest is to stop. At the level of the neighborhood, but when it comes to police the ideas that we're processing assistant as supposed to protect us, and they have the highest. Responsibility Yeah I. Mean Police again looking at the data again. I'm talking about death because excessive force as soon as you use the word excessive. Because it's it lets you know that it's subjective. Right excessive is like same taller short. No, no, no. That's not the they've operationalize it, so it specifically use the use of violence when not use of violence beyond what's necessary to detain the suspect or use of violence? It's unprompted right so they've operationalized and again they're based also on the response of the officers right? They're basically officer reports. This is strongly encouraged. Will Get I'm flying in the dark hair. Because you're telling me about a study that I haven't actually read and I definitely have studied this and as I said. Perhaps they have operationalized it and there's a way to determine what's considered excessive force I. don't know that, and perhaps you're right I. Don't have that in front of me, but we do know. Is that people that are protesting out today or not protesting? Because they believe that police officers are using excessive force are the whole mainstream narrative when they're having people on talk. On CNN and black lives matter their entire platform is about. About black men, dying unarmed peace officers was founded upon that concept, so I hate the fact that we're now shifting and pretending. It's about something else. Moore widening Monette and we're making it about excessive for studies that nobody is talking about on CNN. Everybody's talking specifically about the idea at a black man that is unarmed is likely to die at the hands of police officer, and that's fraudulent to fraudulent. It's a lie so. Long recommended actually wasn't founded on. That was founded on Trayvon. Martin's death, which had nothing do law enforcement. George Zimmerman wasn't a law enforcement officer. So from the beginning we're talking about the kind of sense of unsafe unprotected that black people experience not from law enforcement, but really around the you know in every sector of of our lives, not just men, but women in anyone else That's the first thing and I. Think there's always talked about the daily violence among other things. If you look at the Movement for black. Lives Policy Statement the tournament. All kinds of stuff it's not. It's always been a waxy most about T- movement. It's a why why but exciting the problem you create a wide net when you when you're full bullshit. Right when you know you're bullshitting on just about we're about Trans Rights and police. It's like maybe one sentence now. That's even about police anything. They've really kind of dwindled it and it's actually more about equality for trans something, but. I would think this'll be up your alley. Right not to transport definitely on a but but the idea that. We're not singling out the police. We're saying that we should care about black lives an all sectors I mean that's part of the part of the argument. You're making about black on black bounces one about saying we should care about like life, not just when when when it's threatened by police everywhere movement for black lives the singlet we care about poverty we care about. Certainly stay violence. We care about food insecurity. We care about all of these things because they they they connect relying. That's the whole point. You can put that statement on your website, but then when you're a solution that is to go into streets and to riot, and to burn down into loot and every time they have protested Emma so. It's not like there was. Sound like there was at one time where they started every time. Black lives matter narrative starts running in the media. Black people die by people's neighborhoods. Get burned out from start of trade of trayvon Martin moving onto Freddie Gray, and here. We are today with George. Floyd with Aubrey. This is what happens every single time so if there were. There was that one. It may have been other protests. That were not saying I'm not. You know condemning off protesters I believe in. No No, no, what I'm saying every time their narrative like say mainstream every time their narrative. Every time you go, whoop, we're doing black lives. Matter again. You can bet your ass all across the nation black neighborhood. You'RE GONNA burn out. PEOPLE ARE GONNA lose their jobs and loser lives right. So that's that's the hypocrisy. The idea that they care about all this other stuff. When in fact, every time they're protesting specifically about police brutality, okay and black. Black people suffer so if you're if you're solution is worse than the problem. It's on a solution. So how many people have died and George Floyd protests becoming like who have been arrested up because of these George George Floyd protests. How many people have been impoverished because of these George Floyd protests. That's once a good time to sit back and say is what I'm doing working. Okay, so so let's look at that so I think one I. It's an interesting way to frame this black lives matter. Protests have been every day. They've happened since two thousand fourteen your point is that the median net when when when it becomes an the national out of becomes this.

"And if I want to test in Connecticut can I get one If you're showing symptoms and you get permission from your doctor you will get a test. We've amplified our testing. Probably a hundred fold in the last week Comma. That's not nearly good enough. Look at that compared to South Korea in other places where they were virtually testing everybody on a regular basis. We're not there yet. I hope we get. There is a country before it's too late. Yeah I mean you've had deaths in the state of Connecticut from Cova Nineteen and my understanding. Is that one of those deaths was built hike. A family friend of yours. In what did you learn from experiencing that and must have been very difficult? No it it. It brings Invisible germ right to your heart and brings it home look. We spent months as a and even a lot of people in the state. This is something that's going on over in China. This is something going on Italy. Okay it's in Seattle is getting closer here. Some people are infected but everybody's going about their life And then all of a sudden the fatalities really rang the bell for a lot of people and People begin to understand why we took those very restrictive measures early that we did. Let's face it. There was some pushback early on you. Know we said no do High School Basketball Sports Championships and we had thousands of people signing a petition. We had students protesting outside of the center. I think people understand why we did what we did. Have you ever seen anything like this in your life or in politics before governor? I really haven't. I mean obviously you and I you know you remember nine eleven Kennedy assassination maybe. Pearl Harbor going back in time. They're big riveting issues. That have galvanized. The American people and occasionally air incredibly dysfunctional democracy gets together on a unified basis. I think this is one of those times but it's It's even more tragic because we had an opportunity to see it coming and now it's going to change things forever and we don't know when it's GonNa end in its current form. You think any good could come out of this in terms of people pulling together. You always hope so We we thought nine eleven might be transformative. It lasted for you. Know Months Right now I gotTa Tell You Labor and Business Republicans and Democrats. I was just on with the faith community. This is a state that's really rallying together rowing in the same direction. The hospitals everybody stepping in we have hundreds of retired nurses who've come back and said what can we do to help? We're getting some of those young nurses coming out of nursing school getting them trained in up So people are stepping up and that are really proud of re switch away from Corona virus for just a little bit here governor and I wanna ask you about politics you endorsed Joe Biden last July early to that particular party Why is that the case? I thought at the time and I think today that he's The best man to That point maybe unify the party but more importantly unify the country and And I still believe that and I hope he's our next president. What do you think his chances are at this point Governor Trotha? I haven't spent a lot of time on that issue Everybody has taken a pause On the race. But I think he's the right man for the moment He has the relationships around the world at a time where A lot of those relationships have been fractured. A time. Where you really need the world working together. He has good relationships on both sides of the aisle and Congress and some people knock him for that and but I think that's an enormous plus right now I think he's got the temperament the personality and the experience to help us through this tough time. Let me let me ask you a two big companies in your statement where forget at in CIGNA Two major health insurers Hauer? They've bearing on. Are you in touch with executives from those companies? Yeah no we absolutely do we. Talk all the time Right now they're watching us. They're claims could go through the roof so they have to monitor this very carefully but I I give him a little push from another direction. I said The banks are Not necessarily forgiving loans but Deferring payments on loans were we as the state of Connecticut or saying you don't have to make the tax payments for the near term. The utilities have come forward and said we'RE NOT GONNA CUT ANYBODY OFF FOR WATER POWER. Whatever those utility bills might be and I'm really urging Our health insurance as well to give people a little bit of room to Traverse these tough times. I hope they do sell governor. You're you come from a family that has had played leadership roles in government in the private sector for generations and. I'm wondering if you tapped into any of that During these times I've tapped into the fact that You're on this earth and make a difference if you get in the Public Service. You're here to make people's better and Tragically this is a big opportunity to make people's lives better or at least a lot less worse for the near term and this is a time where people sort of a dismissive especially as state government. It's a bunch of tax happy bureaucrats who loved the overregulate you to death except now now people realize I got public health and public safety working together with the hospitals Working together with nursing homes reaching out working with the clergy working with mental health homeless. This is a time. Government can make a difference and I'm proud of the opportunity. I have to help make a difference in this state and last question governor. How can ordinary citizens lean in and try to make this situation better? What do they need to do on the simplest front Andy is stay home and tell their friends. Tell those young millennials tell those Twenty year olds who. Maybe you're a little dismissive. You're not just endangering yourself. Your daydream the community and more broadly. you know beyond that. We have incredible philanthropy people. Somebody just stepped up and said we're going to fund dozens of Daycare facilities in and around our hospitals. That'll be announced very soon. These are the type of things that can make an extraordinary difference in a small way or big way. If you have a senior citizen lives nearby Knock on the door and say you're going to go pick up a meal for them and Or even better call that restaurant. That's struggling to stay Stay alive and say look. We're going to order some takeout and We're going to bring that in. And maybe I'll buy a gift certificate so when we get on the backside of Corona. We'll be able to come in. Enjoy your restaurant. There are a lot of ways that people can reach out and help each other out governor Ned Lamont of Connecticut. Thank you so much. Fear it time. Thanks for getting the message out. We need good information this day and age. You're doing that we'll catch up soon anti FACS. I'm Andy Serwer. You've been watching influencers.

"Painstaking effort. It takes to do intellectual actual work you know people see Mike Tyson on TV. But I remember being a graduate student and going to his house. I was research assistant and I helped him A Cup compile some of the research for the Marvin Gaye Book and I remember bringing him. You know some articles in some papers and some Shit and you know and Mike is painstaking. Mike writes every every word he writes every footnote he reads everything. You give them like. He Ain't you know what I'm saying like all I did was go to the library. You know what I'm saying and I remember going to his house. And it was like seeing being Osama it was like seeing a Saddam Hussein. Come out of that hole because he had been in his crib like a month he cut his hair. You know what I mean. He was eating and writing. Fourteen eighteen hours a day and reading and just going in day after day after day. And I'm like yeah. People see the cool shit but they don't see the level of the work in a level of discipline in level of fight. You know what I'm saying that it takes to do this work well and so I wanNA convey how much fun it is but I wanNA convey I one of my favorite stories doc. We talk about Kobe before I I remember thinking I want so I played basketball high school and I remember when I were you a one point. Go Yeah it was a one. Yeah and I remember after school. I went to a different. I went to one high school Kobe. Bryant went to a different high school in his cousin a wounded overseas and still plays overseas. John Harkes went to a different time. Anyway we'd all go over to Saint Joe's and we workout after after a you played ball koby in high school you. We played We play together. We're actually for Sunny Hill. We we started. I was the point guard. He was to guard. So you were good. We played on the same squad as we. Oddly enough we met basketball camp me him and Kevin Hart went to basketball camp one summer in Ninth Grade Tenth Grade Ninth or tenth grade. Oh Shit yes. Speedy Mars basketball camp. Okay Kevin was you know. Point Guard telling jokes time. Kobe was bus nearby. As you know what. I mean Anyway so after a year or two we start working after school and and I remember like we do drills we we play these Games And we played this game called college which basically like King of the hill one in one out I score. I'm off next person. Come on John's cousin being proud year or two older than him so I could be John. I could be John. I could be John if John. Ip Ten Times might win somewhere between four and six times okay. You know 'cause I I wasn't score winning and you come in on defense okay. I've played Kobe in my life. Two Hundred Times never beat them never been made. It seem like a big deal but when you play a game like that where you got you got at the ball I in all you gotTa do is score. You think would win one. And it's like ten eleven twelve greater when like yeah every once in a while maybe he took the shift so serious and what like. We didn't write but he had a level of like obsession with winning and disciplined about it every time the I had never seen before and then we play for our or to Kobe. Already done it to our work. We did this and then after I left I will go home because now we all went to baseball practice after school. We all other eight o'clock at night. Kobe within go to the main floor would a trainer and shoot hundred jump shots one hundreds of jump shots hundreds of jump shots from every spot on the floor. I remember one day I came in a gym and he was shooting free throws left-handed. And thank you when we need to laugh and free throw. He would jump shot threes unless issue two. And I'd be like that actually doesn't make sense to me but Chore Maybe One that you fade away lefthanded shot out of bounds. But you'll never need a left handed free throw and then I remember he was playing against somebody remember it was it was in the middle of his career and he broke his hand mill of play and he shot the free throw left hand. I remember that and like Damn near cry. I don't even think he made it but the idea that he was preparing for some shit that the rest of US couldn't even imagine and again. You could argue. It wasn't a good expenditure of time especially since I don't think you made the free throw. But the idea that he was imagining a moment like that and the fact that he was willing to work an an extra hour or two just in case that one moment happen sure was a testament to his disciplined and his commitment as a basketball player..

There are people who I'm sure genuinely felt that that phrase is problematic. I'm sure there's people who felt that way. But I think the people who initially responded to the speech where not specifically responding to that phrase as much as they were responding to the speech being. Severely or significantly anyway, critical of of the state of Israel, an Israeli policy, and I think the river to the sea became an opportunity to to make a certain kind of claim about the speech. I think really wasn't in line with what the speech actually said. Also, I think the phrase river to the sea itself is something that has been taken in twisted out of context. Oh my God.

Severely or significantly anyway, critical of of the state of Israel, an Israeli policy, and I think the river to the sea became an opportunity to to make a a certain kind of claim about the speech. I think really wasn't in line with what the speech actually said. Also, I think the phrase river to the sea itself is something that has been taken in twisted out of context. Oh my God. Use the HAMAs frays river, the disease HAMAs phrase have the ever used it, of course. But so of many other groups Isreaeli groups of used a Palestinian groups of us in moderates of us. I'm not nearly as much in the space as you are you've been to Palestine many times, you are deeply educated and on the ground in the situation. So just for folks who are not Ilie invested in..
