Fresh update on "lasso" discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart
"Sort of foundation this is so long history. And I decided not to work anymore. Because the doctor said, hey, ten years left to work and so I think ten years had passed and I wasn't saying the way it used to. I couldn't do work the way I used to I couldn't be whoever it's quicker, faster is one of my feeders, acrobatic in a way. All my tools were gone. And then I had an offer to do my friend Bill owners to show the Ted Lasso, but he did scrubs at the time. He asked me to do it and I said, you know, I come with a lot of baggage. I don't know if I can do this. And I did it. And I realized that I took the character at OCD and I took it and put it through the Parkinson's filter. And it realized that in a sense, everyone has Parkinson's. It's just finding that person's Parkinson's, whatever that it is, it's why it was unresting it was alcoholism and addiction and misogyny and general misinterpret behavior. And scanning it was who was an interesting guy because he was a lawyer who had to Parkinson's and used it to cultivate sympathy with the jury. And he would say he would make it all about him. And then you defend drug companies that were being sued for. Not having the weight anywhere being a leading man at being a guy in one of the cost sheet carrying the show. Having all that pressure, I was just this guy could slip in. Put on these characters. Use my own experience to blend and create a new experience for them. And do it. And it just became this thing all of a sudden it was like something that was like another job anymore was a hobby. You know, it was just a good experience and it gave me a second, I realized less is more which is good because I had less. And he was more of it. Give a helping hand this giving Tuesday with The Washington Post helping hand. This is John Kelly, post local columnist.

Go to post helping hand dot com to learn about the local families, these nonprofit support and donate today. Thank you from all of us at The Washington Post. Michael, you anticipated my question I was going to ask you about what you write in the book. I can play anyone as long as they have Parkinson's and I was discovering everyone has Parkinson's and you talked about that. But I want you to get to talk more and I think you just talked about him. Lewis Lewis canning and you also talked about the fact that your character was peculiar in ways using using his Parkinson's as a way of currying favor with juries. But the question is, why do you think that role left such an impression with viewers? I tell a story in the book about it, being in the beach with my wife and you know, I went down to the water and tested it out and we booked it and he ran ahead of me and got out of the talents and dry off and I came up and sat down and sleigh became up and said, she never confession to me. And I'm going to move my wife and I don't want to hear this way these confession whatever it is. And what she said that she said, I signed going to the one and I felt this critical feeling of loathing and disgust. And I said, oh, that's yeah. And then I realized it was loose cannon. That's why. You just shot Louis canning going into the water. I hate that guy. Excuse me. Do you realize it was me? And then she felt she had to apologize to me for that. And I said, that's the greatest comment you can ever give me. Sorry, two to form. You're making me laugh, Michael. You're making me laugh. I want to go to an audience question. This is a question that comes from the Commonwealth of Virginia from Kimball Boone. She wants to know what parts of your memoir were most challenging to write. I think once he was heard about was I had this kind of post operation of psychotic break regression to the drugs they take for Parkinson's mixed with the drug detective operation and whose name only tough because at that time I was in one of what was happening, but my daughter was there during it. She was a psychology major. So it was like a field that was a combustion holiday for what we look freaky, but that was tough. We just have to write stuff to break down other people's observations of what was happening. And a couple of my observations from the damaged position. But in terms of her to write about my own so I had to write about Tracy because I'm not even a writer to really get to the depth of what that connection is with the person who commits to you and can miss you early in what's going to be a long journey along the slog and want to challenge it. And she committed to me and had been with me through all this stuff and to this minute is like where everything is going on with me and yet not suffocating me with it and making it my burden that I'm her burden. It's really remarkable relationship and so it's subject to justice to that. We're not go overboard and not make a treacly incident. We're not really sentimental people. You think with all my optimism? I'm not about realists. I mean, I just think that there's you know I mean that picked up New York Times doesn't look this for page. And then we're four stories that we're all into them, but they were all just horrible. Drugs and social injustice in I just went. It's going to be something in the next page. It's going to make this a little lighter. There's got to be something in a lighter, but more understandable, if we just understand if I can understand the connections that people have in the way that we can help each other and the way that we can get it. So we don't have to look and say that person is that. That's one thing we have this. We don't have this. And that's what I have in my family. We all have this. And we all get the best we can. You know, this is her third memoir. And I'm wondering when you write when you write these memoirs, one does do you have your family read them before you hand them into the editor. And I'm wondering what reactions do you get from your family? They're really interesting. My daughters are my daughters and most amazing because they're just my daughters in there. They own me. So whatever they say goes double for me. But they are interested in the broader notes that the emotion of the message whatever we talk about that. But then they'll say, no, I got to be in this class. And I got a name in this class, right? I went here, I went to Sally's on Friday and went he's on Thursday. And I mean, just like that, it's really great. And I love that. And I love creating my daughter scholar who the night before I got hurt. Recreating conversation with her. When I know that that's what she said and I know that's what I said. And I know it's just such a beautiful experience. And then have her read it in a firm and say, yes, that's where I saw it too. But I saw this other thing that you didn't see that I.

TV's White Guys Are in Crisis
"So we're going to try this episode to critique the position of white guys on television without sort of repeating the problem that white guys on television currently present which is that. they're not the point and yet they're the point. I want to dive in by talking about this great piece. Catherine wrote for vulture about the crisis. That white guys are going through genetic. Maybe you'd think it's not really an emergency. So bad so white guys are still of course all over television as they are in the world but they are on television in a different way in certainly in some new shows and they have been in the past. And you can see that in shows like peacock sitcom rutherford falls. Amc's genre bending. Kevin can himself and the two big hits of summer. Hbo's hotel drama. The white lotus featuring a bevy of white guys who were going to get into and of course ted lasso. Basically the white guy who used to be. Tv's default protagonists are not but who are they. What does it say about them. And us catherine have i. We're gonna keep talking now. I would just shamelessly coach from your piece. So why don't you tell us. It's central argument. Yeah for what i think the framing of it as a crisis it has been really interesting to see responses from two different sides of sort of people who look at the headline that are immediately put off by it. People who are like. I don't want to hear about a crisis for white guys like i'm done. We talked about them too much. And then of course from the other like terrifying side of white guys being like extremely mad at me and sending me all kinds of emails but it was in response to something. I started noticing as a pattern in new television shows that were coming out this summer. And something i saw. Rutherford falls and kevin can f- himself in particular. I had this sudden realization that they're like the same show at the core

He would be like the dad figure he'd be the beloved buffoon he might be like the chosen one character or the love interest or this charismatic. Anti hero figure and now that we have begun to look at the stories that we put on television and say like what if we had other kinds of people in the world who are the main characters that white guy figure no longer works as the
"lasso" Discussed on Post Show Recaps
"Of the same coin as the leftovers which was a show that antonio and i talked about each and every single episode except for episode five. Don't add us. We didn't do that one. Just go from the episode. Four to episode six recap when you're going back and listening to the leftovers fight casts. We missed that one. Sorry sorry gladys and it's not lost me that show which was about grief and how to process that an incorporate your life and how to like still find meaning in ways to move forward and that being a show from damon lindelof the one of the creators of lost in the one who is most credited with frustrating the fans with all these unresolved nonsense items that the core message of that show was reflected in its theme song. Yes let the mystery be And so like. I find it very funny that when when i'm i'm kind of like lenzing lasso as a show that is at least a cousin of the leftovers in that. They are both very very very deeply focused on the human experience. That's the connective thread. They come out in different genres and with wildly different content. Although if we see ted check into some sort of international hotel that could be very fun again. I do think that that's more of a coach beard thing. It's just not lost on me like this idea of like our job is to let go and how those things thread together a sort of meta commentary. I find that fascinating. I find that exciting because usually like the job of the podcast. Is we gotta tell you what's happening and we got to tell you what's going to happen and i love that piece of job. Don't get me wrong. But man. I do love just stopping and smelling the roses. Roses smell so good rainbow. Roses a smell like something else. I've heard that's true. That is also true. But i think this case for me like i just delight intead lasso and is there a world where i would have rather like crushed this season and just like gotten to this faster may be sure certainly. Like if that was the intention creatively like we got your quicker. Yeah then i get that. And i i would love to see the creative vision upheld i think in some ways the right now is very much a victim of its own success which i think is an admirable problem to have. That's a you know a very much like a high class problem. I know i. I'm happy to have a weekly shot of so. I'm happy to know that like at the end of every shit week that we've got here at the end getting their shots tab of ted like. Yeah i want that so like i'm not mad at that. I'm pretty happy with this idea of like. Just let it go but i also think that one of the strengths of ted lasso has been like the ways in which has surprised. I think structurally like to talk about this episode specifically like it just did things at the show has never done before it really. It was all the rom com marshes. The harry met sally stuff the breaking the fourth wall. The two people who are in the stands that speak directly you know very very tropy genre convention stuff that is just wielded to such great effect in this love story. not about one person meets person but You know this this. This cosmic love story between athlete and sport. I was really really beautifully. Told and for me. There's no world where you guessed that's going to be the structure of an episode like if felt very singular felt very beautifully realised ended..
"lasso" Discussed on The Times: Daily news from the L.A. Times
"You to fail and cepa taj. You every chance i've had today. We continue our collaboration with our sister. Podcast envelope and its host yvonne. Vr in this episode she talks to hannah wedding 'em about her emmy nomination and how she gets into characters. Literal shoots canna. Thanks so much for joining me today. You're welcome nice day or voice. Same you now have the distinction of having emmy nominee mentioned alongside. Your name first. Congratulations have you gotten used to the way that sounds. I haven't and i think. I have a well and i think that's just the way it should be. It's a privileged position to be in. When i know so many brilliant actors all over the place who've never been nominated soy i feel the prestige of it. Well the emmys are just a few weeks away. There will be a limited audience of nominees and their guests for the in person ceremony. Have you received any instructions for the big day like. Do you have to get a test the day prior the morning of how are you feeling about it. I don't know about any of old asshole. All i know is that i'll be going come hell or high water. I haven't got involved in any of that. Thankfully we i mean. Ted lasso is one of the nicest shows on tv right now but for most of the first season like you said your character was not that nice. She spent almost the entirety of the season. Trying to bring down the football team that she newly owns as a way of getting back at her husband In season to your character shows a softer side. She's embracing her love of the sport and her team she's dating and she's reconnecting with her goddaughter. Did you miss anything about her hard edges. Either for the character or in terms of playing her. I wouldn't say i miss her hard edges. I seth knee had to find a new ground. Without having any attrition with anyone As far as anyone has seen at the moment but i felt very softly and daily about her and held her very precious to my heart from day one even though she was doing all those things she was doing because i know i knew why she was doing them and it was a kind of rite of passage for her to gain catharsis through this person. She never realized we come into her life and make everything different. And better in the form of ted. We're back is also the rare woman in power in sports. Are there any real life figures. You've read up on or even reach out to as eve sort of Settled into this role. No not really. Because the main thrust of course was very much like i said previously. It could have been any subject matter. It could have been a golfing academy it could have been in a school. It could've been anywhere. She was just hell bent on destroying that which had been created by her ex because she knew those the only thing he really cared about. So there wasn't the need for that there. And now i think i'm so deeply embedded in rebecca and what she stands for that. It hasn't been something that i felt that i need to rediscover or or kind of embellished from season one. I'm happy with where she sits. And i take each moment as it comes because of course still with rebecca. There's not an awful lot of football content. Anyway she may be the the head of that ship so the buck stops with her but of course before that has been all the technical talk From ted and from nate and from bid. And from roy keane's you know so and then all our fabulous boys in the locker room. They provide the proper football vied. That is so important. I wouldn't want to interfere with all their great work. People have been rooting for her since the beginning did that. Strike you as surprising. No because i actually spoke to jason very early on just making sure that she wouldn't just be seen as the kind of doll failure of the peace and he said look. Don't worry about it because that's why we chose you because you have a natural empathy and humanity about you and it's the cracks in between where a warmth or a fragility peek through and kind of subliminally. That's what the audience clamp onto the fact that you see have finish a conversation where she's been the boss or where she's been trying to sabotage something and then someone leaves the room and you see the real her seep through so it's so cleverly written that i'd really didn't have to worry about that. The writers had it all in hand in the first place. Well the niceness of the show has prompted a number of thing pieces. Why do you think it's the source of this much analysis from early because it feels like a long time apart from my beloved obsessive fan girling over shits creek. I feel like it's a long time since we had anything that showed the power of good the power of good behavior. The power of treating others as you would wish to be treated the basic ted lasso vibe as it were and also i think the the alchemy of putting together the writers the caliber of which we have with the correct people playing the parts. Perhaps that make something that has just captured people's minds and hearts because it just feels like it all fits and there's no one of us in this cost that feels more important than anyone else and i think that comes across and it makes the audience feel comfortable watching what's it like with you. Guys offset like particularly in season two You're filming in a much different way. Obviously like how does that. Niceness translate to you guys altogether. It was there from day. One of our i read through the pilots and it stayed the same and it does come down. I think to hierarchy if everybody is on an even playing field and you all dig each other which we all do. I mean i've said before it happily be stuck in a lift with any of them. And i'm talking about them are supporting artists. It's a very very happy camp so we don't have to try hard and thankfully it was all there because of course all the difficulties of codes. Of course you step onto the set and you think oh god. Is this going to stop the funny out of it. But of course it didn't because it seems you start doing scenes and you dig each other and the script is so good..
Is Ted Lasso Kid Friendly?
"Have you been watching. Ted lasso season to happen watching washington lasso season. Too rough set up. They've taken it way down. I think they were too popular with evangelical christians and traditional catholic so they decided to drive us away. I can't believe is that. I don't know if that's the case i mean i think it's it's i am still enjoying it. I don't know if it's If you know quite quite it's a slightly different Show in the second season. 'cause it's not like purely optimistic and upbeat there you have kind of a. You have mean guy coached coach lead tasso right the Oh you've got a very dark turn to the roy character. You got more f bombs. Kurt schlichter extra told me he's got too much profanity for him. And he swears like a sailor. Anna colonel you've got a lot more sexuality. I could no longer recommended for a family and i think that i think is oh. The writer's room. The show runner got too much positive feedback from people like me. I don't want those people watching my show all rough it up so much that you won't watch it anymore. I mean there is if there's a fair amount of cursing in the first season guys right can't has always been one with the the s bombs. I mean i. I would not eleven and nine year old girl sunny. Yeah i mean it's yeah it's it's it's it's i think it's kinda funny because it you know unusual to see a footballer of that sort cursing at Little girls instead of You know the the grownups that he's usually around but it's it's just a i.

Ted Lasso: Lessons on Leadership From a Fictional Character
"I for anyone who has the unfortunate fate of not having watched head lasso yet. What are you even doing people. How would you describe the character of ted lasso. So i think ted so is it shouldn't be a serious character right. This is a college football coach from kansas. Who is going over to coach. Manage in the english premier league. The whole setup feels absurd. Which i think is why the character seems to work so well because this guy is a. He's folksy. he has these things he will say. I mean come on. Sam was more open than the jar peanut butter on my kitchen counter. That's right y'all don't know. I like to keep the peanut butter open. That way whenever i walk back and just stick my finger and yet he has this inner goodness that i think when when he comes across people that they seem to react to you coaching football make. You are a legend for doing something. So i mean it's meno murdy well you know. I've heard that tune before. But here i am still dancing. Ted last. So is the quintessential mid western kindness guy. You know a guy who wants to do well in the world treat other people the right way and just kind of live life with optimism and kindness and all those like grape characteristics that we'd all like to have. Yeah i think it really is his relentless optimism. That wins you over in the show. Is there a particular scene in the series that you think really captures that element of his personality. You know i was thinking about this. In the first episode. He's gone over to england. He's been introduced to the media. He talks to the team. And everybody's obviously it's not going well and then him and coach beard kind of redecorate the office. They put up the john wooden pyramid of success. They put up. All these american touchstones like muhammad ali poster in the miracle on ice poster all in the office. And then roy kent the kind of the you know. The quintessential english footballer. He comes in the office and he calls him ronald mcdonald and i think he uses an expletive and then he leaves the office and ten lasso goes he thinks may now wait. We win them over if he thinks he's mad. Now wait until we win them over.

"I don't know what that's gonna look. Like but i hope that it surprises us. Oh yes. I trust them implicitly. Like i literally as soon as i saw the sports psychologist and i saw you know. She's she's not given the time of day which is obviously as soon as i saw her. I was like oh. Ted's gonna get a therapist. He's going to have to unpack trauma. But you know okay. So do i do want to wrap this up by asking a question about anti heroes which you did bring up before you know not too long ago. Tv's most compelling shows were defined by darkness and like you mentioned anti hero characters. I mean or talk about breaking bad. We're talking about mad men you know today. The tone for some shows is much more likely to be earnest. Where do you see. Tv heading though like. Do we want darkness or lightness. Do we want both do. We not know i mean. We're in a good shape in terms of like there's so much potential for story because there are so many mediums in which story can be told whether it's someone doing their own stuff on youtube or through all these various different streaming services. I think we can have both like. That's the ideal right is that you don't have one narrative because that's boring like it's it's boring if you turn on tv and you see the same show over and over again. Whether as much as i love madman like as much as i love these like very intense deep dive into like strange characters are anti hero characters. Ted lasso is new indifferent because that sort of empathy and kindness was relegated to television for younger viewers..

I think we're all here huge fans of ted lasso but for those who haven't seen can you tell us a little bit more about the show and who ted is as a character shares so ted lasso is a. It's about an american. Football coach has been brought over to england to coach a premier league team in the first season. I don't want to give away any spoilers. I guess for someone who who's not seen the show at all but it's very much you know Fish out of water situation and Clashing cultures and there are multiple reasons for ted to have come over and a lot of different. Storylines weaving together But at its heart. It's about this man who is in a new situation and how he reacts to it and impacts the people around him with just beautiful positively. I'm yeah i.

"I don't know if you were involved at all of the editing of that scene in the setting of that scene. But it's just i've always fastened by these artistic decisions like it would be easy to just fill jason and rupert. The accurate plays rupert and nothing. I'm there's some generic crowd reaction but filming her as a major part of the scene. Was it just it. Rounds it out perfectly. I don't know if you have any insight into that. But i just thought hannah wittingham was also nominated for an emmy like everybody. I might get nominated for an emmy. F this podcast. I thought that was an absolute. Like i don't know i've never seen her before that. That scene alone would have made me a huge fan of hers. Hannah's amazing And yet i mean that's just that's it's good directing and good editing because you know you're shooting her coverage anyway And just leave you to leave a camera. Honored to see if the editor will be able to use it and turns out that she's amazing edge even just silently watching and yet you pepper that into a what he's doing and it it it it it is. I'm glad you call it out because one of the sort of less mentioned elements of of the recipe that scene that That make it. Sing is jason's who is ted lasso. Saying oh so. Rupert has a very cocky moment where he says. Oh we're gonna play the darts for this massive winter. Oh i forgot. I have my personal dark collection on the jason lasso says oh well i forgot i'm left handed is that is that an intentional homage to the princess bride or just it just happened by accident on. Oh that's intentional To princess bride and demanded patinkin Fellow kenwood academy graduate Along with chaka khan And nausea mohammed. Well oh okay. How are you feeling about the chicago. Bulls by way. I know he'd be be because you've been overseas. Been hard for you to follow the team. We were dealing on twitter the day of the trade and and in obviously. They didn't make the plans. Ac levin had to be out for health and safety protocols i don't know i i know you're a big big fan. But how are you feeling about say the team cautiously optimistic. You know with the with the regime of stairs really and you know when they got really of like we. We were able to get billy donovan okay. Okay that's uncharacteristic of us So i'm i'm yeah i'm i'm i don't wanna spoil it i will say i was watching that That draft lottery with with with a lot of hope in my heart But too bad. So was that a. I mean actual best talk. Do you think that ends up being a good trade. Losing losing a high pick for. I was i on the day of the trade. I remember saying. I like this less for the bulls and more for the magic than consensus seems to be like. I think it'll be fine. He's a really good player. He pairs well with the in. But i thought orlando did amazing to get that much for a thirty one year old center. Who's a defensive liability. And i didn't really. I didn't really love it for the bulls and was worried that they were going to trap themselves into just being an okay team for a while. I think there's some hope within the bulls that some free agent somewhere. We'll look at those two guys and say that those those guys be fun to play with. They'd be draw for another really good player. We'll see. I do like pat williams. So i think i don't know if you've got to watch him at all the unconditional but i think he's going to be really good. Yeah okay Myself know who came up with the idea of ted lasso making cookies every day for the team owners. I cannot remember It might have been joe kelley The effort mentioned joe kelley. Who is the writer of that. Second episode Yeah that's that's my guess would be joe kelley but it's certainly. It's been a fun. Fun runners was. It was a fun thing to like. you know. Find the right moment in the season to make that reveal which i think came out pretty well to it. Did i suspected that it was him that making them but it was good to have. My suspicions confirmed so. I told you i was gonna ask you this before what's What's the scene whether you're in it or not. That's maybe not one of the iconic scenes and under the radar see. Maybe there's a great joke in it anywhere but that for some reason is near and dear to your heart as one of the creators of this thing there in episode four which is the the gala episode rupert's appearance. And all that. There's a bunch of great stuff but one sort of table. Setting scene is literally edit table which is the moment. When roy jamie realized they'd been sat at the same table And then ted's enrich go way sit down a parent trap y'all That's just a great little scene of bouncing around you know juno ablaze. Kelly and fill downstream tart and bread. Plays roy and nicholas nate. And today. 'cause they're all they all have moments in that scene. That really really fun. The first time seeing those five characters together it kind of sets the tone for for some relationship stuff you know in the love triangle and it has one of my absolute favorite jokes of the whole series. Which is When when kelly compliments nate on his suit and he says thank you. It's the first suit. I've ever owned a second set of our own. The first one was a naked baby. Rewatch that scene today and nobody laughs and to me the funniest part of it is when lasso says yeah the the term birthday super really helped you there keys. Everytime jimmy hart shirtless during that scene for some for some reason that scene also as a very good joke related to the parent trapping which is that ted lasso says i just i just said buyer the writing of jokes. Because i can't do it and i just i'm fascinated by the process so the joke is says i like my because there's locker room dispute between between Roy and jamie old veteran and the young hockey hotshot. Who's a jerk and selfish at that point in this in this series not making the extra pass which is his mba expression that gets into the show and ten lasso. Says i like my locker rooms like my mom's swimsuit in one piece. How many versions of that joke are there. Are there other. Like i like my locker rooms like and then there's like seven other punch lines. You chose this one over. No i think in that case that was that was the clear clear one because you know one piece bathing suit is is is a phrase that exists so i think he's let us let us right there. It is one of two jobs. We have during the course of the season that are about a mother or mother-in-law's mazing bathing suit. Though which is something we need to. We need to explore more or less. I'm not sure but it's weird that we do at twice. You have this brand of joke. That is almost thirty. Rock ish and jason today consists of course on thirty rock as as liz lemon's love interest. It's a joke that is like like a normal conversation is happening. And then a joke sort of organically emerges and takes takes over the conversation to the one that i was watching today. I just happened to see it was. I don't remember even the context. But ted lasso says he's asked for some advice or something and he says i have to. I have two lessons in life. The first is.

"To play this character known as ted lasso and at some point and you know how apple goes. They're big on the corporate synergies. They're big on making these agreements. They probably sat down with nbc and said. Let's work this deal out here. How because i'm sure at this point. Now that nbc has their own streaming service. They wish ted lhasa was on peacock. It is not. It is on apple. Tv plus this is a great deal. That apple struck to have the rights to use this character to create this show and that's ultimately. I don't know if apple struck that dealer not actually. I don't know if this was in the work somewhere else and apple bought it. I don't know the full history behind it. I just know we went from ted less. There was a character appearing on commercials to promote a tv network and tv network's coverage of a sport to ted. Lasso is a tv show about that character. Doing this exact thing that was sort of presented in the commercials for high comedy. This goofy over the top american football coach going to a place where he knows very little and a sport that is very different to american football and bringing that ethos to to bear. That's why it didn't sound like it would be a good show just sounded like it sounded like a one joke kind of thing but it is so much more. There's so much more depth to the character and there's so much more to it which i know we will get into but that's the basic premise is just fish out of water american over the top football coach. He's hired by an english soccer club to coach in the premier league. And that. that's exactly what it is. I don't want to miss attribute this to kevin mateo or to somebody else. I'm not sure who who it is. Who called this. But that ted lasso is almost like it's almost like a superman story like this idea of the big blue boy scout who is such a such a paragon of good is such an ambassador for all things.

"The tv show is not without pedigree like this is a show that comes from creators of other very successful projects including bill lawrence. Who i believe was one of the main driving forces behind scrubs i know he was actively involved if not the lead of in a producer or show runner of spin city. There there are a lot of these a lot of really talented people that are involved in the making of this. Who have like apple is throwing money at really skilled creators at people who had had success in other ways lawrence also bill lawrence also created town. I that on my notes so he he was involved in a lot of these really successful or beloved or both shows and he's making ted lasso for apple. Tv plus and yet. They did a really good job. It's really really good. A lot of their shows are like better than you want them to be like actually like some of them are not like some of them are bad as good as you would expect which is not very of some of them are really great like we were talking before we came on here that the people who have watched for all mankind like are like nuts about it and swear by. I've heard from so many people that i would love it and that it's like the best show that's currently on tv. So i'm very intrigued about that. So there is good content. But if like if it's just for ted lasso alone. I think that you will be well served. And if not like you've got a podcast that'll tell you what's going on on the show and you can listen to us and the reason we brought it up right from the jump is you can do that. Seven day free trial. And you could watch all ted land so easily in that seven day since he's in one it is only the ten episodes each about a half an hour without much extra content. So you're talking about five hours of television. Essentially a couple movies worth of television. And you could definitely knock that out in a week and you'll probably want to even though you're going to want to savor it and you're going to want it to last forever. The good news is twelve. More episodes are coming. You could absolutely do your trial. See if you like it. There was a time. I don't know if that's the case now used to be able to watch the pilot even without signing up for the trial. I don't know if that is still kidding. It's still the case but it was in like the really the glory days so now so if you want you can you can do the seven-day trial knockout all the season..

Bill Barnwell Breaks Down NFL Quarterback Moves
"So bill. We gave you do the math a whole month away from this podcast before our dependency bio chemically kicked back in so i just hope the last four weeks have been everything that you personally needed. Pablo got on many vacations. I turned around my life after six months of just staying watching football now. Bill barn wells weekly column on. Espn plus and he hosts the bill. Barnwell show podcast realistically. I have done something that few human beings have accomplished. I managed to get one pack of moments from nba. top shot. yeah. We share that same addiction. You are far deeper into the game than me. I realized over the weekend. I just want there to be an nfl top shot. Because i feel like that's going to happen right. It has to. i mean. Imagine the things you could do. You could send somebody that colts fake punt from years ago or or if you wanted to try some of your friends. Perhaps you could send the russell wilson interception from the nfl top shot to a certain person with the initials m used to host the show. Yeah just randomly picking in that example in those initials absolutely but bill. We dragged you back here. Speaking of a certain quarterback who threw a certain interception emotionally terrorized ours. Because this is an especially dramatic. Nfl offseason. they're all these big name. Quarterbacks who want out of these relationships that seemed from a distance at least pretty broken and russell wilson and the seahawks. I need to ask you about that. I because i know russ isn't feeling respected by head coach. Pete carroll reporting. I know that carol wants to revoke all of his cooking privileges. We've heard now. Russell wilson like storming out of meetings which is kind of funny to imagine like door very lightly slamming so this particular soap opera. What is all of it. Feel like to you much ado about nothing really. I mean i just i. Just don't buy russell wilson drama. I go back to his contract. Negotiations this is the same player in the same agent. Who wants imply that he would leave football in the middle of these negotiations entering the final year of his deal to try professional baseball. Where russell wilson once for the iraqis and the organization he hit to twenty eight in the low minors before returning to college football. It was not a realistic threat. But if that way does he want the seahawks to give him more helpful on the offensive line which has been sort of the crux of his public complaints. Yeah i do believe that. And i think that the seahawks could benefit from giving him more help. They relied on russell wilson to run his way out of sacks and free pressures from unblock players which has worked for that stretch buddies also taken a ton of hits cuss russell. Wilson plays the way he plays. He is going to take a ton of sacks regardless of how good his protection is the best way honestly pablo to get him. Hitless frequently would be to run the ball more. Which is the exact thing. Russell wilson was trying to get the seahawks do lasso last offseason. So there is something here but i very much doubt that leads to a trade. My favorite thing about this new cycle i think is that russell wilson has relayed via his wrapped. Adam schefter that he is not demanding a trade but if he were there are these four specific teams that he'd like to go to the bears. The cowboys the saints. The raiders does any of that make sense to you know not at all i mean the classic russell wilson tropez that ciara was going to pick teams him in new york in los angeles which this is the opposite that list even the teams he chose are so strange. Maybe you'd argue that. He chose teams with great offensive. Lions triumph of the seahawks. But the trade doesn't really add up the same. Stu have agreed offensive line. But they're like sixty five million dollars over the salary cap. The cowboys have a great line. Whenever everyone's healthy but they also have back prescott. that's not gonna work either the bears. I don't understand. They don't have a great line or any cap space. That one makes no sense to me on either. Level the raiders. Maybe are the most interesting and plausible candidate of the bunch with a great line and some cap space to work with. But when i think about jon. Gruden as raiders coach. He wants quarterbacks to do exactly what jon gruden wants on every single play. I don't think any if it really adds up to meaningful trae dialogue. I don't think there's going to be a conversation between the seahawks and another team about trying to make a trade for russell wilson work but this is twenty twenty one anything is possible

And i'm not going to spoil it but like even you're just like it. It works so well and ted lessons there with his fucking kindness and they're trying the best of jason soothing courts as the lead so good sports boys trying their best is like. He's getting the precis deserves because he really is an amazing actor and comedian. Improviser and writer. Snl there all right as he came from the improv community where he put his pace onstage being doing improv doing writing stuff in his shows. It really shows and it's really nice.

Yeah and they dislike are talking and he. He cracks him. You know and a reading the early Report on what he's going to print the next day the paper and it's like it starts off negative but it's really positive and that's like that's why i wanted to watch the first. We have sisters end ended. Third absolutely like this is the whole point of the show. He's gonna win people over and this is. How do i love the ask of him. Winning person over one by one by one. It's so honest. So real i love. I feel like i've seen something else that's happened but i can't think of it. The thought of it being so human that each character is getting when one over one by one it just feel so you know it makes me remember like Agai didn't like me at work. Because i had to push him out of the way for like a food delivery or something like i didn't remember it like i got. I was like in a hurry so my first impression was wrong. You know so like me for a minute. But then by the time i left the company i was favourite. Managing one of his favorite people at the work that we've stayed in touch more friends. And it's like yeah. Yeah you put in the work you people see the real you a head is all about that right. He's all about putting yes authentic self forward And a one hundred percent i also. I love the friendship.

Fuck in acting stuff so like i didn't recognize her because she's like this model fucking funny but she's she's She's one of my favorites out. You know yeah. Because oddly enough she also leads with sincerity like unlike some of the football players whose walls are up or whatever she liked knows who she is. She's comfortable with it. She knows you know she's with jamie kind of an asshole. She knows that she's pretty that such skinhead but she also you know when she goes and asks ted. If you'd rather be a pandora line is like a genuine question. They're having a conversation. She's like a genuine person with all. This is really interesting. It's hard to pull off that. She the show doesn't just focus on ted less a legacy earlier. You get so many beats with all these characters in. Its grazie. Their characters develop. It is awesome saying getting more.

Nobody owes me anything because of nice. That's how it works. Yeah but it was real. It was real nice saying that you know so thank you. Thank you for giving the shop because that was that was that hit hard by really nice but then also going forward in the show. He doesn't stop being that guy. It was really reminded like you still do. You still got to lead with their best foot forward even if you less falling apart and everything's perfect. I mean as you continue to watch this show. A he hits hard times he'd like gets it pretty hard and his relationship with his Wife continues to affect him in different ways and the stress of fronting a team and also the fact that people are out to get him like. It's all just. It's a lot for him but it's it's still good to watch like i as someone who like does it want to always consume content. That's going to remind him that he's part of a block party right now. I just want to escape and be happy for a little bit. And despite the fact In spite of all the harshness. That's in this show. There's a lot of happy a lot of good and it's just like totally totally worth it to watch if you're looking for a good time during his block party. I want to ask you something you are. You've had different. And i only want to ask because just to lift availa my own life very recently. I got into a very a heated discussion with somebody in charge at the place that i work and as you know as maybe not a lot of people i used to do a lot of managing and being charged and i stepped away from that so i had more time to be an actor so now i'm not in that role but i have the luxury of knowing if both sides now and i got very heated conversation about how best to motivate people to do a better job until like the team together and you know i couldn't help but notice like all the little tips and tricks he was doing in. The show. are exactly what. I was arguing or yeah And i just wanted to kind of get your take on it so like at work they want to put the hosts and part of the tipple so some of my tips will go to the host. It's not the way it's ever been done. It's the way it is at some restaurants. Yeah but the rationale so they feel like they're part of the team. They feel like they do more. If the elect take more ownership but my plays has had host after host after host leave resigned get fired leaving resigning in every single time. I've talked to them. Because as i'm sure you can get a lot of people come to talk to me about stuff. Yeah it's never about the money it's about the way they're it's about the way that they're micromanage us about the way that they are not giving any agency as a person at all. And i had to like late and be like. That's not why it's not working. It's because of you. So why are you taking my money away but just wanted to get your take on like his leadership style and his coaching style. Like what you thought of it like how it made. You feel like all your jar. I feel like it's hard. Because i come from from that. I guess is still a team but definitely working in in business and all this shit. It's like it's hard when you still go on. You have to manage people. And i try to just be as friendly and open and honest as possible while still kind of maintaining certain boundaries of you know a workplace in not getting too attached to like your co workers in order like your interns or whatever but also trying to create a friendly welcoming environment and if you are in the position like i was a mentor to a lot of apprentices at a certain point like teaching them what you have and also learning from them and adapting as you go and it's it's really interesting like i when i was my job when i used to mentor. People like i had some people come in it was it was meant for people in college but i had people come in who could be a college at any age so there are people who are like forty for like or older who were under me and i kind of had to like remind myself at even though they were older. And i'm like. I respect them for that. Like i'm here to teach them things and i and the they are coming to be an expecting me to help them out and i need to do that and i have a responsibility. Feel like lasso doesn't like he does in fact take his responsibility seriously and that he him being a coach like he says he doesn't care about the points whether they win or lose like he cares about making a team and that's the foundation that's going to lead them to victory and i liked that. I like approach a lot i. I love the way that he handles situation. And the way that he tries to break people down in order to build a backup not in a negative way. But you know what i mean. No get them back to the basics. What they care about what to they really. Are you know like in your area. See at working out working in specific areas. I'm like super like the suggestion. Box thing the positive reinforcement to jamie a negative reinforcement. Roy like how he's using all these very specific tactics. That i like honestly i used. I used these tactics at work. You know so. It was really nice seeing it from like a little dip because it's like a sports in a metaphor way but like It was just. It was just interesting. 'cause i've never again consumed media. That has all the things that i do as a manager in all the things that i do to lead. Are things that just kind of like conditioning. Learn walk away. But i'm like watching them being like done in like really cool you know. Reinforce his very realistic as wrapping up. Here I just wanna maybe hit a couple of like our favorite like little moments of the show. Like for example. One of mine was the book thing. So ted lasso gives a gift to every player. Every single payer gets a book and they all get their very own book. So like specifically roy gets a wrinkle in time and he calls. I was like what books this original time. And then i forget if it's his niece or the principal or someone's like oh it's about somebody who doesn't want to be the leader but they have to be the one and then roy looks at ted is like am i the little girl. And he's like. I hope so and later roy book and reads the book and he gets it like yeah thought of the thought of giving a book to every player on a team to help them learn a lesson about themselves to help them grow. Yeah and that's like your coal as the leader is so cool. It's like that freeman so good. So in the fact that it works to like it just it. It works so well they jimmy threw it out of course but jamie's the hardest nut to crack in in the whole show but i i like all the side characters. Each side character gets a little moments. You're there and i love all those little moments. There's an episode where they're trying to get rid of the ghosts that are in The locker room. And it's really nice. It's really heartwarming. It's really finding good writing. Because he mentioned he believes in ghosts in the episode yet. Rewind rented rewatching the series to you. Pick up. it's it's it's very watchable. I just fucking watched it. Everybody watching it again. And i'm like catching shit. That i didn't see before and i'm like noticing jokes like it was so hard to watch episodes mark. It was so hard finish. I was like i need more. Another one of my favorite moments from the show was the fact that he got a care package from his son. And it had those little army men in them away. He starts giving them away and like..

"If i'm going to be a great player. This is what i need to do. And you see that in the last episode and again spoiler alert. I guess because the cool part about the final episode of the season is that it takes you on this ride like like. Oh it's going badly. Oh it's going great and then it doesn't go rate but there's still a positive finish to it which is so ted. Lasso enjoyed bad. Things are going bad. It's still positive. Yeah i'm. I'm glad that they ended the show the way they did. I think if they had a completely wine and everything was roses they would. That would have been too much of a corny ending for it. I'm glad that they kind of put the spin on it. Like where they're almost there but then they just missed it but then that gives them more to focus on in the future. And that's like ted's whole thing is like this long-term growth like don't worry we're gonna like we're gonna figure out the next season and then we're gonna fight our way back and then we're going to work on even pushing ourselves beyond so he's like so undeterred by by the allegation that he's just like well. That's not really my goal right now. My goal is to work with these athletes. Which is also kind of a privileged position because not every coach can say like. I don't care about wins and losses can sometimes that really does dictate your job your job at a at one point. Make it clear to them. That actually wins kind of are important which was a great moment to i think for ted also changes and learns through the course of the of the season like he again. There is growth character. Because you see that. He's learning from his surroundings and he is aware that he's in a different situation than he was before he has to have different considerations for what is important and when he needs to focus on but I did like that. There was that little positive up note at the very end Rather than just finishing on that downward crash there was a little bit like you see where things are going to go next season coming back to To your point around like you're a new coach coming into a new situation. It gives a really nice opportunity for you to try something different And throw the old system out the out the window and try and put in something new something That will work to address some of the team's issues maybe in a different way but that doesn't have to always be the only time when you can make those changes to rate. I think just like you were saying. About how ted learns as he goes through his his season. I think coaches go through a natural kind of learning phase through their their careers and All the time or are adjusting. But i don't think you have to wait for that moment to come to you. I think you can kind of create that change areas. The i see some some thoughts forming in your head too many to get my head. I don't know which ones i wanna. I tried to spit out my mouth at this at this point Yeah i mean. I like in modern. Kind of what's going through my head right now is is the incredible patience and trust in the process. Right and you know as you talk about coming into a new situation and you you know you're going to change and do things differently. We only met kind of the the manager that was in place before ted lasso for a brief moment at the beginning the very beginning of the first episode..

"That ted teaches throughout the the season i was finding myself being reminded of that and then that really kind of i don't know if the subconsciously or very blatantly gave me like a more positive outlook on on my own career. Were or some of the projects that i was working on I don't know if this show hits so hard because it came to us in such a crazy time in the world and was just like this little bright shining spot that we all needed to can get through get through the winter. But i know that for me. It was like this is hitting really deep right now. I'll admit i probably wouldn't have watched it if we were in a different time. Just because i would have thought i don't have time for that but i kind of watched everything there was to watch and i and i thought at some point i probably would watch it but i just finally went. Okay i'm gonna watch this and was immediately sucked into it like it's just you know. I think the way you were describing you know the affected had on. You is the effect that Lasso has on his players. Writings the subtle positivity that just eats away at you and you you just wanna be a part of it right. Yeah absolutely like longboard board. Yeah exactly like the the kind of one of the main characters in the show. Is this General manager for the team who has kind of inherited the team from her ex husband. But really it's like kind of the ex-husband's team and so her whole point is that she wants to sabotage it to get back at him and so she hires this coach who knows nothing about the sport as a way of sabotaging team but then that kind of works against her because head is such a fantastic person that it's it's impossible to hate him. He's an unstoppable force. Yeah that's exactly it. And i think i think also like the the casting of jason today was particularly perfect like he just has this ability to be so positive charming with it without being annoying. That was the kind of surprised me. I was expecting this to be a lot more of an annoying character. But it's just too endearing that's all it is. Yeah i think what are the parts that like the best to like is the second episode or so so spoiler alert where the newspaper guy comes to spend a day with them to do To do a an indepth piece on them and it's basically meant to be a sabotage piece. It's meant for him to just ridicule and cut apart in the in the press to undermine him and the guy just can't resist writing a positive article about him just because he's just wins him over with his sincerity..

Soccer english football But that he's ready to embrace the challenge Anyway so that's that's kind of the setup of the show The the characters you meet.
Ben Rector Gets in the Christmas (and Thanksgiving) Spirit
"Your christmas album of ben. Rector christmas is so brilliant so much. I'm glad you like it really like it. We were listening to it this morning. The office i've been listening to it. While i'm baking at my house through an thanksgiving song that hit like i mean people went nuts for that thing. I was actually really surprised. So i was gonna my manager. Greg was like hey like you should really try to write some original christmas songs and i was like well. I think what people don't understand about christmas music is it's they're used to the song so you don't really remember how good they are. It's really like the greatest hits of the last hundred years of music truly. You'd like i just write another christmas song. It's like the last three songs that were added to the holiday music. Canon gary and then wham and paul mccartney and paul mccartney went on like honestly like various weirdly similar since christmas and so i was just like been a million people. Try to write christmas songs. And even once some that are pretty good and it's just like i it's just tough to exist in that world because the classes are so good and i was like maybe right thanksgiving song so it came out like better than i thought it would and i thought it would just be like. Oh people will maybe like this song. That's great and then as it kinda started to happen like radio. A lot of radio stations played it and like it was like kind of rolling. And i was like what if this could actually become like the thanksgiving song i people reacted to it. More strongly than i thought they would. I thought it'd be a song and everybody was like this song. I was like that's awesome right. I mean apple picked it when it apple that made it. They're like song of the day is amazon amazon. I mean that is no joke. Then it was it was. It was a on the radio. Top ten song crazy. What a so what happens now is not you. Will you sing that when you are on the road next year i thought about that i was like i think in the month of november. I probably could really we did like how after thanksgiving because it went well enough that i think all of us were like wait. This could actually like if we pushed it for a couple more years. It's possible that it would happen every year because a lot of radio people were like we had to make this tradition. And i was like from your lips to god's ears like mass idea. You've had what i'd new can. I'm like a body going to be on my pinky but yes we had a caller just like what could we do to try to make this happen again next year. So i would imagine that. I will play it if i do shows november. That's a good month to do it. But i don't know if i could do it before then but i would love it if it became something any honestly outside of radio or whatever it just became something that people wanted to listen to around thanksgiving that would make. That'd be happy enough with that. I just i had door. It's so this is against unfunny. It's such a kind song. Thank you so much just feels very like friendly and understanding. I wanted it to feel like a like a warm hug. Yes did that. That's why you accomplish. That was the goal. That ain't how it feels. And i i will be interested i. I wonder if it's if it's the ted lasso of music in that you love that people get your face you gasped. Here's the thing in two thousand twenty. Ted lasso is the medicine we needed island. Think that will stay true and twenty twenty one and i think that's true of your song. I'm a big believer. That i think like sincerity is gonna come back because i feel like so much of pop culture in the last little while has kind of been like ironic and like not as much just like heart on your sleeve sincere and i kinda think that especially also with there being not just in two thousand twenty but in general a little bit less like human connection and a lot more like connection online or like digitally in whatever way i kind of think sincerity is gonna feel wonderful for a while. I think that's going to be like the new cool thing. Maybe because it just like so much stuff is a little bit cool and like irony. And whatever and i think that that stuff can be great. I think that some of the stuff that started to connect ted lasso other stuff like that. I think people kind of like yearning for like. Oh yeah just like good stuff connection. How did you decide. What christmas songs on this with. All those options. Yeah i honestly. Half of making the christmas record was just because it sounded fun to like to arrange and seeing some of those songs so a lot of it was just like i was like these songs on the most fun to do and i think the idea is that like my hope with the album is it will over the next however many years add to it at different places and have like other volumes of it. Oh yes so. I think instead of being like i'm gonna wait for years and make another christmas record like literally next year. We might just like do three more songs and do another like a different edition of the vinyl or something. Let so some of it was knowing that i was like. This isn't the only christmas record ever gonna make so there's no pressure but a lot of it honestly was just like these songs. Sound the most saying what a great thing about how music is created industry and twenty twenty. Plus is that you can go. Let's add three more to that. And it just upload to spotify or upload apple or yeah right. Yeah that's brilliant so it can be a thing that continues to grow with under the same umbrella of ben rector christmas. I think we're kind of honestly looking at it like it's like a air quotes brand where it's like you know not. I'm not gonna do it every year but like maybe every other year just kind of being like hey like we're going to do another run of the vinyl in another edition on spotify. That essentially will be apple music and amazon all stuff. That'll be kind of like another edition of this record. Do you want to write more thanksgiving songs or do you feel like that's the one i don't know if i could beat that one. I would love honestly to right. We joked about like oh. She just released as a gag. The thanksgiving song again with just slightly different lyrics every god this president and stay. Whatever i do think Another i think some of that song was a happy accident of like pressure. Just like this is maybe a thing but i think as soon as it was like cool do that again. It's like i don't know if i could. I would love to write. I'd love to try to write original christmas songs. Or maybe like a new year song or whatever. But

Facebook launches Instagram Reels to lure TikTok users
"FACEBOOK has officially launched instagram reels. It's much disgust tick tock competitor that lets users create and publish fifteen second videos. The APP is live now in more than fifty countries including the US UK. Japan. To remind you how we got here. I will quote Tech Crunch in late twenty, thousand, eighteen facebook launched a tick tock clone called Lasso the APP didn't take off and was shuttered this year though unsuccessful as a standalone product, Lasso represents facebook's ability to run what are essentially large scale Beta test that don't have to generate revenue. This allows facebook to collect a sizable amount of user behavioral data that can then be put to use win building new features for flagship APPs like it's It's doing with instagram reels, following tests, instagram released reels in Brazil in November twenty and nineteen, where it was seen us to see how instagram users would respond to a different sort of mobile video experience with reels. Now, instagram's goal is not just to capture the now potentially up for grabs tiktok audience in the US. It's to steal them away. Even if Tiktok, remains today, instagram caters to a certain kind of create community that doesn't always overlap with the younger Jen's e and up. To that's found a home on tack and Jen Alpha, if we're being honest instead instagram users either share polished curated photos to their feed published personal and casual videos and stories or share almost Youtube Lake Creator content to g TV meanwhile instagram browsing experience hasn't offered a way to quickly swipe through videos like on tiktok reels aims to change that the feature lets users create and publish fifteen second videos using a new set of editing tools that include options like a affects a. A countdown timer a new align tool to lineup different takes, and of course, music instagram's deals with major record labels. Mean users won't have to wonder if their sound will later be removed due to a rights issue and will offer a variety of musical content. Right out of the gate.

"They are the feds are out with this new report looking at drinking how much drinking is our our Americans doing what is the drinking is leading to a rise in deaths that Americans like to drinking so they put up this report and all over all it says that America has a drinking problem I think we can all agree on that one and they say that each American is drinking just about two point three or two and a half gallons of alcohol a year now this is what the study says that works out to five hundred drinks or about nine a week well as you just pointed out to me that math is completely wrong but let's put that aside for a second Charlie let's talk about what this report is also talking about and the public health concerns as I talk to health leaders about this report and they say this really does point out health concerns let's put the matter aside for a second let's not worry about that let's talk about the report it says more than eighty eight thousand Americans die each year as a result of excessive drinking that number is doubled since nineteen ninety nine so over the last twenty years the number of alcoholic alcohol related deaths has doubled the death rate has risen fifty percent the the female death were paid bath death rate just women jumped eighty five percent you know we we see all these things in pop culture about mom's gonna Wilder we need mommy to that in part these help public health experts are telling me that's part of the rise but they say there's also underlying factors in America plus we're just getting better at and studying drinking in America that's what's in the more information we get the the more accurate these numbers are the highest alcohol at a rate alcohol related death rates for women were among those the ages of fifty five to seventy four which is kind of surprising to me I figured it'd be younger because younger women often do more binge drinking but this is the the the highest rate for deaths were women are fifty five to seventy four and of course the reason that we're all talking about this is because this week marks the one hundredth anniversary since the start of prohibition okay let's take on the federal government for just a second feel free to jump in here charity of you know better so they're saying two point three gallons is the average in a year yes the federal government let's just take it even further let's call it two and a half instead of two point three sure two and a half gallons is three hundred and twenty ounces a small beer is twelve ounces you're right twelve and three hundred and twenty and you're going to come up with twenty six twenty seven beers twenty six twenty seven beers that's not what they say it was something like five hundred drinks in a year yeah they said the math works out to nearly five hundred drinks or about nine a week now it's twenty six twenty seven that's a weekend in my backyard all right let's say you're in you're drinkin whiskey I was shocked I don't bring my with I don't call my whiskey shots like calling give me you know for your two fingers of whiskey but whatever this call it in each lasso whiskey is an ounce that would be three hundred were back at three hundred twenty ounces dads three hundred and twenty shots okay so the numbers also say that in this is that I'm quoting from the the report it says that works out to nearly five hundred drinks for about nine a week so let's take the nine a week number if you do nine a week nine times fifty two weeks is four hundred sixty eight the federal why am I not surprised that they can't do can do math and you want them to do your health care no I don't somebody might bad not me okay once again more evidence that the federal government has no idea what they're
IBM Shares Slide After Q3 Revenue Miss; Red Hat Deal Fails to Boost 2019 Outlook
"Story IBM fell as much as six and a half percent the most intraday drop since October twenty eighteen this comes after posting the fifth consecutive quarter of shrinking sales as weakness in the global technology services segment limited strength in the companies red hat business to discuss I'm joined by IDC present Crawford del pride so let's start with that top one decline was there not enough growth from red hat to offset the drop in that poor business yet so frankly it's kind of I think this is a question of one word which is expectations I think there are a lot of expectations around red hat they paid a lot of money for the company kind of going forward we look at IBM's core business they are managing it for profitability as best they can with the GTS segment the sort of global technology services segment that's a segment has historically been a profit driver and a cash cow but you gotta remember that as people build these hybrid cloud infrastructures as they move more in the cloud there needs in the GT in the technology in the core technology services space those change so what IBM's need to do is like a need to drive efficiency in that area they're gonna need to automate where they can deploy a technology that allows them to frankly have less did it cost in that area so that they can stabilizer that part of the business now to say stabilizers kinda is an overstatement it's not like that business isn't stable is just about business wasn't able to grow in revenue you mentioned how expensive right how was the thirty four billion dollars went in at what point do you need to see those synergies start to filter through to the bottom line is that a twenty twenty story yeah I think it is a twenty twenty story but I also think if you look closely we're starting to see it now on the song red hat post twenty percent growth so that means is that you got a red hat product the now click through this vast IBM sales force this vast IBM machine and if you look at the move to hybrid cloud to win one of our recent surveys we saw is that you know a meaningful he said a large companies have a cloud strategy they don't they don't necessarily where they start they have a sort of best fit cloud strategy they have a contract with a going to be some in the private cloud and some in the public cloud and that please to the red hat strategy so what IBM needs to be able to do is enable these hybrid cloud customers be out there and a celery grows for that business we're starting to see that I think you'll still see that going into the first half of next year I want to come and take a look at a chart that I'm showing in our terminal for our customers here which basically you know the story it is software versus hardware and you have the big outperformance of software here relative to hardware and then the gap between the two has really expanded software in the White hardware in yellow this software now though look over valued given the run out yeah so we we do sort of by host but by some of the high so hold recommendations here at IDC what I will tell you is that the expectations are really high for suffer now we've seen software continue to salary we believe that software revenue growth of the overall industry for the next couple years will be between eight and ten percent annual growth and that's really steady and fairly predictable what's changing about software that I think people are starting to understand in that chart is that he's a subscription business so it's becoming incredibly predictable hardware while some companies like say H. P. E. are trying to go to and everything as a service and sell hardware to service the nascent innings of that which software is been being sold as a service for over a decade now so that means predictable revenue over and and you can see out as a management team very very far in terms of what your revenue is going to be as you sell those subscriptions though is that recurring revenue with a focus on software meaning you're focused on the top line or is it also filtering through into an increased focus on the bottle depending upon where the company's in its McGinnis maturity you you obviously at times I I are always Sir focused on that bottom line but in the very very early stages your lasso focus there what you're focused on that businesses is bookings not even focused on revenue you're focused on booking and being able to sign new contracts that you know will be a subscription revenue that they'll be earning over the course of you know future couple year period and that's really what folks as bookings we see some good public a success stories in the IPO market is doomed data dog now though there it twenty six times an enterprise value to former sales why are you still think that those are good stories despite that high valuation was so people kinda know what they know and what they do is they go back to the two thousand time frame and they say here we are it's a bubble it's crazy I
