"Safety rails and information and guidance about being responsible, but I guess for a last comparison, it's a casino. If you go in there and put your house mortgage on black on the roulette table, it's like that's probably a bad idea, but we're not going to stop you. And the U.S. teas or the anchor protocols of the world, they're not going to stop you either because they're going to make money on you throwing all that money on black. So we just tell people be responsible and make adult decisions. One of the things I think that's cool about lido is that if you could still earn a yield in your Ethereum, even if you don't have 32 Ethereum to run a staking node. But is that something that you could also do through coinbase and if so, what are the differences between staking your Ethereum on coinbase and then using something like lido? Yeah, so coinbase the most practical is they charge 25 basis points. We charge ten. So they're more expensive. But they provide a very streamlined ecosystem. That's so easy. You can swipe a credit card, sign up with your email and you have exposure to the space. More fundamentally, it's like the Kindle replacing paperback books. I don't think it's going to be the death toll of all centralized systems. But I think the past year has shown with Celsius and three arrows and now FTX. It's really shown that if you don't control your funds and you can't see what's behind the curtain, there's a level of risk and trust that needs to be involved. And I am not implying coinbase is bad or good. But we are seeing historic patterns fool me once fool me twice that if you're accepting that risk, that is a level of risk. Now, that's not to say lido or DeFi isn't without risk. There's smart contract risk protocol level risk. There's regulatory risk. Unknowns, but for us, we view lido or other liquid staking, decentralized protocols as a counterweight for users again, going back to the optionality. If you want to have more granular control and optics into exactly what's happening with your funds, we provide a system that lets you see exactly how the sausage is made as it were. And we believe over time, take the big banks when they settle through like swift network. They all have to trust each other and swift that like, hey, B of a you owe us a $100 million. Well, we say you only owe you $70 million. Now we have to get into arbitration. The nice part is where we see DeFi coming in is they will both be able to look at a publicly auditable ledger and say, yes, we do agree that we each owe each other this amount and we have 10,000 people all agreeing on it as well. So I think that's where we view our place in the ecosystem as a more granular controlled counterweight. I think that makes a lot of sense. Is there any impact that lido has from kind of FTX blowing up? Or is that something that's like, hey, it's just a crappy instance for us, but we don't have any really direct sort of exposures. Yeah, so FTX are Alameda were involved in one of our treasury diversification rounds last year. So they held a position in our governance token LDL, they also owned a position of STE, which they accumulated on their own. But like anyone that owns our tokens three arrows capital and Celsius where other examples, how they use them and what they do with them, we have no control over. So from that perspective, we had no exposure, but FTX was dumping their positions of our assets. So that impacts the price a little bit, but that's not bad. That's just market dynamics. More broadly, FTX was one of the most liquid centralized exchanges for a couple of our assets. So that impacts liquidity in terms of centralized exchanges. But in terms of the protocol, the security of the protocol and the tech, we have no direct. Exposure, the biggest pain in the butt is more what it does to the whole ecosystem. It just I personally think it's going to set us back for a year or two because now we have to earn our trust again because we're the shiny techno bobble that keeps losing hundreds of millions of dollars on bridges every few months and then we have the occasional exchange blow up and it's like, well, you should trust us just not those guys. And it's like we're going to become guilty by association. It's a shame, man. It's a shame. It reminds me of one of those quotes from Google right there, they're quote is like, don't be evil. But blockchain does enable a company to have a quote of can't be evil, right? Like kind of that could be like lido's quote, right? Like you said, you can see how the sausage is made. You can see where the risk lies, where the collateral is, what the debts issued against. And never be any of these big runs on the bank. And there's a lot of really interesting sort of companies that are out there or projects or dows that are working on stuff like that. I know we spoke to the founder of fracs recently saying newsman. He's doing some interesting yeah, he's doing some really cool stuff with his decentralized Central Bank. And his fractional stablecoin. So I think there's a lot of good ideas, but at the end of the day, blockchain is kind of like can't be evil. Is that a statement you would agree with? Yeah, and it's frustrates me to this day because about a month ago, I heard a quote I saw read a quote on Twitter and I can't remember who it was, but it basically was we've had privacy preserving and compliant money before. Fiat, U.S. dollars, their privacy preserving, because when you buy something in cash, it's untraceable. But it's also compliant and regulated. Well, we should be able to get to the same point with blockchain. We still have some work to do, but I agree if you need public auditability where you don't have to trust JPMorgan, not picking on banks just for reference names. Taking a bank like I use chase, that's why I mentioned them, but I trust chase to say, this is how much money I do or I do not have. And it's effectively an IOU. And they insure it up to a certain point. But I like the idea of, I don't have to trust them, I can trust a group of thousands of people or groups, entities, what have you to verify that it is or is not correct? And then I can add privacy as needed for certain things because I don't want to hear all my dirty laundry when I go shopping sometimes. I'd really like to believe that blockchain can't be evil, but there's a lot of centralized enough, there could be some things put in there. I know vitalik just today or the other day was talking about potentially rolling back transactions and Ethereum has had a history of doing stuff like that for better or for worse. Now you've got like 99% of the RPC nodes running through consensus, which has a majority ownership in a lot of traditional finance

"We're so not only are you earning these network tokens, but potentially tokens of other networks as well while still being able to take that derivative and move it on the open market. And it's this real innovation towards more capital efficiency that is kind of driving the next wave of DeFi. Are there any other things that you're hearing in terms of the basically in the capital efficiency space that have caught your ears that sound like it's going to be another next big innovation or that you would love to do over there at lido? So there's some things that we think are really effective from super fluid, one of the components I really like, is it focuses on more liquidity being available. So the deeper the liquidity pools are, the more capital efficient it is, the larger amounts of trades can go through without altering the exchange or the price rate, which is really good. For us, there's some things that we, meaning lido probably won't build, but we would love to see other groups build using ours or other liquids taking assets because of their reward bearing properties. So the DeFi protocol how chemex was really a pioneer in this space with a self repaying loan. If you're not familiar with them, they basically, when you collateralize some debt to borrow a stablecoin or what have you, they put that debt to work in a relatively safe way that earns a modest yield and thus you don't get to you don't have to pay any interest on your debt. So you could effectively go and I know some people that did this, they took out a loan of die converted to Fiat and bought like a car and they're like, hey, I get a free car that's self repaying itself over the next 5 years. I think things like that are really interesting. If especially from the context, if we believe DeFi will slowly chip away at traditional finance. And other parts of industry and we do believe in the long-term adoption of it, then things that are able to take the underlying mechanisms that generate rewards and then turn those into other more advanced products for other users or institutions is really interesting. So I know stablecoins are a very love hate world we live in, but right now the models are you have fractional UST and those of historically blown up, you have over collateralized like die, very capital inefficient, but it's really stable. And then you have the Fiat backed USD C USD T where it's just a bunch of dollars relative to a dollar coin. I'd really love to see an interest bearing or reward bearing backed stablecoin. But not tied to a Fiat system. Because eventually, if we really believe crypto will be or web three will be a thing, we can't always price in U.S. dollars. And candidly, I still price a lot of my stuff day to day in dollars because it's how I purchased 90% of my goods is I'm here in the U.S.. I would love to see a free floating back to stablecoin powered by reward bearing assets that are powered by themselves, the underlying blockchains that we're all building on. Because that was kind of what Luna tried to be in Tara, right? I mean, I remember the whole yield mechanism. It wasn't fully. It was supposed to be stable. But it wasn't fully collateralized. And I can't speak to do Kwan's true intentions or what he was thinking. But he seemed to have been realizing that if he really wanted U.S. tea to fully grow, he was going to have to start collateralizing it and make it more like a fully backed stablecoin, he just didn't get there. For many reasons. We saw a large impact because that was our second largest deployment before Terra blew up. So that definitely was a gut blow to us. Yeah, what was going on during that time? I think everybody was kind of looking at Luna and said, hey, you know, there's a couple holes in the idea, but smart people like it. Alameda and three hours capital, right? Who are now in retrospect belly up because of the whole Luna debacle. But Luna was a staple asset through lido. And so how are you guys thinking about that during that time? So we try to be as best as we can, good guy, Greg, where we can, but at the end of the day, leverages a hell of a drug, you need to use a responsibility. And we're not your mother. If you choose to over leverage or chase 20% APR on a questionable platform, it was great. Of course, 20% is interesting, but you have to ask, or at least I logically ask, this can't last forever. This is clearly being funded by someone, or if it is in perpetuity, like I'd really like to understand how they're getting 20% because I'm really intrigued by that. So for us, we tried to do meaningful things and we did this as well when after the Terra collapse when people were over leveraged on aave and the whole market declined, we were like, hey, there's some positions that are over leveraged and at risk of getting liquidated. You guys might want to unwind your positions, but we can't make you do that. That's the beauty of DeFi. We can't force your hand. So we did the best we could. We opened up an extra pool. We spent about $2 million to provide a small window for people to. But the reality is when the market wants to go down 50 points, it will take all the money we throw at it, and then still go down 50 points. So all we can do

"Take control of lido's governance process. So we're building more fail safes than that. Diversifying our validator and operator set. So right now we have about 29 node operators that power the underlying staking mechanisms of our protocol. We're working to continue building that out with more players. Eventually moving to solo stakers. So right now, if someone has 32 eth and stakes, they can't stick with us. So allowing that as an option so they can get access to STE. And then eventually permissionless. The problem with permission lists from a high level is someone I always joke about a person named bob. But bob might be running node operations in his garage. He may not be malicious, but he might be incompetent. Do we want to trust bob with hundreds of millions of dollars of staked eth? Well, maybe, but we should prove that he's competent and capable first. And that's where identity and reputation stuff comes in. So we're working on permissionless validators, but that's going to take a little bit more time and we have to create a process that allows them to show competency and build a reputation before we will trust them with tons of other people's money effectively. That makes sense. So there's a lot of things we're ready to have. Thousands of people like bob, but there's tens of thousands of nodes. So when bob's asleep at the switch, the network can automatically say, I don't know, bob, I think you're drunk, you know, go pass out and come back tomorrow, and we'll check your transactions again when they look correct. Exactly. And that gets into, I don't want to get too technical, but that gets into the real bleeding edge tech of distributed validator technology, which is oval and SSB or two companies working on this, which is taking a validators key and breaking it into pieces exactly for that. So if one part of the key is asleep at the wheel or they're computer blows up, they can still keep that validator online and not be slashed. Awesome. Besides Ethereum, do you do any other liquid staking of other tokens as well? We do. We're light is currently live on Solana, polygon, kusama, and polkadot. Kusama is the testnet for the polkadot ecosystem. We're in current build mode for avalanche in near, as well as cosmos. And then we're researching a few other larger chains, but as the market keeps yo yoing, it comes down to looking at the risk vectors, how DeFi is growing, the adoption of the underlying chain. So there's a lot of market research that goes in for future ones. Awesome. Could you tell us a little more in depth about staking? Since it feels like staking is a really large component of lido. And maybe you could tell us a little bit about how does it generate yield or returns, all right? Where does it come from in the sort of world? And then as well, you know, I guess, I guess the question I'm trying to think of is not only where does the yield come from, but how long does the subsidy or the yield go on for? Yeah, so just for simplicity, I'll stick with Ethereum because that's the one most people generally know. But most proof of stake systems have some sort of monetary inflation policy where some new amount of the native token is being created every year or per block or per, whatever the time epoch frame is. So for Ethereum, there's a fixed amount of new eth that is created every year. And that is an incentive to keep people actively engaged and the ones that are not active will slowly be eroded out of their position of potential power. So since that's a fixed basket of rewards every year, that creates a sliding mechanism that the more people that are staking, that means that pool is split between more people. So your reward rate goes down. But that also means if less people are staking, that reward rate effectively goes up. So it creates an equilibrium mechanism where if not enough people are staking, you might be seeing 20% rewards rate. That's really attractive. Let me go and stake. If too many people are staking and it's down to like I'm making numbers up a half a percent per year of a reward where you're like, I can go into a treasury bill from the US Treasury and get 4%. I'm not going to stay over here. So that's generally how the mechanisms work. And as of right now, at least for Ethereum, that is going to continue in perpetuity. They might make a future update to cap that and have an upward limit at some point, but that's to be determined on most of these networks. So that's where the continued reward rate comes from. And very transparently, the way lido makes revenue as a protocol is for providing the service of a liquid representation of that token, we charge 10% of the reward rate. So if Ethereum is giving 5.5% rewards, we take .5 of that as our revenue for our infrastructure partners operating costs, all the business one O one stuff. Keep the lights on.

"You to choose what level of control you have over your data, your financial information, eventually medical records, anything that identifies you as a person or an entity, I guess. Yeah. I used to remember my Windows license key and then I got a life. Over at lido you guys are really the pioneers of something that's rather new in this industry is called liquid staking and what's that enables right now on your platform is people who have their Ethereum that's converted to eth two tokens in this new merge network that are still locked. They're locked in the smart contract that can't be removed. How do you guys come in and provide a solution for that problem? Yeah, so for all proof of stake blockchains, there's a bit of a paradox of choice. You either provide a service to the network, you're helping secure an order transactions by staking your collateral or your assets. And then in return, you're getting a nominal reward rate of whatever the inflation of the underlying network is. The problem is when you lock up those tokens, they're illiquid. So you have to choose, do I lock up my tokens for a nominal reward rate? Or do I go and play around in DeFi, higher risk higher reward and potentially earn much better rewards? And the problem is game theory says people are going to be greedy, altruism doesn't go work at scale. So you put that one out of Sam bankman fried. Let's not get into it. Yeah, how are you doing

"Dive into lido, which is a huge platform. You know, it's a top 50 crypto coin. And you guys have been doing some amazing work accumulated billions of dollars of total value locked on the liquid staking derivatives platform. And I'm excited to dive into some Ethereum two stuff and just see where your head's at, but let's first get acquainted here at the audience. Tell us a little bit about your background and how you kind of dove into cryptocurrency. Yeah, my background is Jack of all trades. Historically, that means it's been hard to get a job because they're like you're good at a lot of things, but out of college. Exactly. Out of college started a couple of different companies in the B2C space like most 20 something year old sold t-shirts and coffee and whatever else seemed cool at the time. Learned a tremendous amount. And then wanted to try the big city for a while, so I went down to New York and worked at JPMorgan, and that's actually around 2016, 2018 is when I discovered crypto. While I was working in the business intelligence side there, living in New York, it was a hub for all things blockchain. So I started hearing about it, I started researching it. Like most FinTech Bros back in those days, I was gambling on them, and it was hilarious and fun. And then discovered that there's some cool tech underneath and there's actually some unique problems that I can solve, then that became the hobby that I was spending more time doing that than I was working. So realized I need to step out and go into this space now or never. So I jumped out right as the market crashed in 2018, perfect timing when I was rich on paper, crypto, and immediately needed a job 40 days later. So I went over to consensus, which is a big Ethereum. I'm too familiar with blockchain studio. Hey babe, I'm rich. We don't have to do any more work. Oh my God, I need a job within the same month. I ended up at consensus for about two years doing token economics and system design, basically game theory, how to get people to behave in a certain way. Did some work in self solving identity, then started up another startup in the identity space, worked at another blockchain foundation called near and then eventually got a job offer or I guess a Dow offer to work over at lido. So I've kind of touched on a ton of different facets of the space in different opportunities and roles. Funny enough, Bryce used to be the head of biz dev at a former company. We worked for. And he was my boss. And working in biz dev, I thought was the greatest space to be in because you just talked to people all day. You make things happen. You know, there's the cliche that your network is your net worth and as a biz dev guy like you are the key holder to that network. And you're probably known better than 99% of other people in the space by the people in the space that matter the most. So it's an amazing position to be in. Do you feel like it's better to be in biz dev during the bear market where things are a lot quieter or in the bull market where people are knocking down your door 24/7 trying to get. Trying to get more dinners bought for you during the bull market. Yeah, I was going to say it depends on the definition for actually getting work done with a lot more signal to noise. I prefer, I personally prefer the bear overall because you have the true builders and the people that are here for the right reasons and the mission and the vision. But I will say it's a lot easier to be the bell of the ball and like you mentioned have dinners ball for you and party and go to the big events during the bull market because everyone's going to be out. Everyone's traveling. So accesses increase and easy. Because money is no longer a concern. But in the bear market, it's easier to get a hold of the real workers instead of the fair-weather fans, I guess. Yeah. A little bit of both, but me personally, I'd say bear market. Yeah. And you're not a fair weather fellow here in the crypto world. You've been around for a long time. You've got a broad experience in finance as well. But what do you think DeFi in particular really enables that wasn't really possible before Ethereum or before crypto? So the maxis go about don't trust verify, remove all intermediaries. And I agree with that. And that's great. But I think it's an oversimplification. I'm a huge pragmatist on this stuff that taking my mom as an example. She doesn't know how the Internet works, but she knows how to use the Internet. She can go to Facebook, see what her friends are doing, check out cat videos on YouTube, like she can get the things she needs without understanding how it works. And I don't think we're there yet from a usability standpoint. But the main thing DeFi offers in my mind, at least when we keep evolving to the end state is, it provides optionality so you can choose where on the spectrum of trustless or trusted that you want to go. A lot of people like things like insurance chargebacks guarantees that the product is going to be delivered. Because if I buy with Bitcoin on eBay and they just don't ever ship the product, what's my recourse? So you have to build an identity and reputation, and that means you give up elements of control. Now, if you want to be a total anarchist and exist off the grid, you can do that with crypto. But if you are like that, which a large majority of the population isn't going to want to manage their own keys, manage their own financial systems, BLK without chargebacks or returns if they try to buy something. A lot of people are going to end up somewhere closer to the middle where they maybe don't want full control of assets by some third party like a bank. But they want the option to choose up to the level of risk or work or load that they're going to take on. So for me, I'm more towards that self sovereign side. I don't mind managing myself. I don't mind digging into the technical sides, but for a lot of people, they're not going to want to remember a hexadecimal address. And if they send it to the wrong address, sorry your money's gone. You're so well. That sounds like a terrible user experience. So I think what really it will do is allow that optionality where, hey, I don't want to have my money on a bank. I don't trust banks. Okay, there's degrees that you can step away from a bank. Or if you like banks, you can stay in banks and still access crypto. But the biggest thing is allowing

"lido" Discussed on The Bitboy Crypto Podcast

"Welcome to BitBoy crypto. My name is Ben. Today, we're going to be talking about lido finance. So let's get into the basics of lido. So as you guys know, staking is live on Ethereum, but for the average person 32 eth well, it's just too much. Most people don't have that much money sitting around to stake with and to create a validator node. You could use a centralized exchange, but as we've seen recently with Celsius and Voyager, that may not be the smartest idea. There are also protocols that pool people's Ethereum together tell them earn rewards without having to have 32 eth. The rewards are then taken in by the liquid staker and dispersed to all the users on the network. And of course, how much you get is based upon how much eth you stake. And of course, you can get charged a very small fee along the way, but see the centralized exchanges, they're doing massive fees up to 25%. It's much smaller than that, and it's much safer. Lido finance is currently the most popular on chain non custodial option for staking. Many users prefer to use lido because they don't have 32 E sitting around, or they don't have a technical knowledge on how to set up a node. So a little bit more about liquids taking. Lido users can put their money to work on other protocols while they're staking their eth. And of course, that's thanks to the platforms, LSD. Now, don't trip, calm down. LSD stands for liquid staking derivative. It's a synthetic version of ether that users receive when they deposit their money in delito. This means you can generate your rewards and take your synthetic STE and do whatever you want with it. However, but you do need to remember that when you need to come unlock your steak, you need to return your STE to the protocol. And if you lose that money on risky plays, hello, Celsius, you will be unable to unlock your state funds. Be stuck there forever. So how do you use the lio protocol? So staking on lido is surprisingly easy. Could a lot of homepage of course make sure you typed in the proper URL. Don't ever Google these platforms and click on them because sometimes scammers use Google AdWords to put something at the top that looks like the platform you're looking for when it's actually a scam. So make sure to be safe and don't ever give your private key away. Once you type in the right URL, you'll see a similar DeFi interface to what you're used to with other platforms you've used in the space. Here you can connect your wallet and you put in the amount of eth that you intend to stake. However, that all you do is click submit and wait for meta mask and boom, your transactions confirmed. After that, your eagle will be state and you can receive STE in return, but be careful with that because like I said earlier, that is your key to unlocking your stake. Now, there has been some criticism around why do finance. Now recently, lido cofounder Vasily, shop of stirred up controversy, saying he thinks that businesses should be the ones to handle eth staking. This is in direct opposition to the Ethereum community, the police solo stakers should be the backbone of all eth staking. Received a lot of criticism from many top devs. Including Ben edgington, who's extremely close to the development of the proof of stake network for Ethereum. Should put a lot of actually ended up walking back those comments and is this a light up finance is committed to building out their protocol to accommodate also solo stakers. But why do finance is not the only one in this game? While it may seem like the best option for non custodial staking for Ethereum, there are a lot of challenges starting to catch up. Rocket bowl is another staking project that's showing a lot of promise right now. It's already live, plus is more decentralized than a platform like lido. The only problem is, rocket pool still requires a stake of 16, still more than most people can afford. Eventually, the minimum is going to drop down to 8 eth. Yay, that's still more Ethereum than the average retail person owns. So this would not end up being a viable option for smaller stakers. But one thing is for sure. This idea that you can stake your eth receive STE return and make returns on that while locking up your Ethereum, well, that sounds like to be a win win, as long as you're not doing super risky plays with it. So drop your comments below. Let me know what you think about why dot finance and how to use it. Have you used it? Whatever results been, make sure to drop that down below. Love to hear your thoughts. That's all I got. Be blessed..

Doesn't i always say this whenever we cover anything with a history aspect on the podcast but i love learning about the stuff unloved that period in the early twentieth century. Where does this idealism In in building these things for the public good. And i was a little bit struck by when we were talking to debra and she said we're looking for ten million a new set we should have one hundred of them only custody. Polian which yeah. I really liked that daring. Understand all the benefits of that but could you in this day and age sell a billion pounds worth of outdoor swimming areas to the to the general public.

Public light is now. I'm not saying that they're all going to be free. But you know. I think there is something interesting that i think.

No is not enough and then on the bunny case for green new deal. What are the most exciting parts of her analysis. The idea of restructuring economies around low-carbon work. This would mean expanding adage of green jobs between the obvious mistake and typically muscular work is involved to other areas Like teaching nursing childcare medicine care work mental health. What counseling and more work that contributes so much as saudi with some of the least impact on the environment it is with. I completely agree with you.

"And i would love to see some of the big cities in the north blazing a trail for that. So just for those. Who sort of haven't yet caught the bug. How would you explain the difference between swimming ally in indoor pool. Yeah it's funny. Isn't it because you would think. How much difference can there be there. Just holes in the ground full of water right. I mean how much different can that be. But it i mean it's it's such a different experience to doesn't bed description at. I think the most obvious facet of obviously the most obvious factor is that you've got the weather on your shoulders and that is going on all around you now. Some people think that lighters are only for hot sunny days but they're really not just for the sunshine in you getting wet anyway. The overwhelming majority of them are. He said these days so you know eight. There isn't really anything like i mean. One of the most memorable swims. I've ever had was a raging gale with hailstones. I could just feel needling moms every time. My arms break the surface to recover over my head. And you not going to get that in an indoor pool. You just not going to get the birds. You're not going to get the clouds in the shadows and the sunrises sunsets so it adds a lot. I think to the sensory experience is not just plowing up and down a tank full of water. An a you a wild swimmers. Well or are you more lightest. Oh no i was. I was an active sumo before was allied. Oh swimmer so. I've kind of gone in the other direction. Most people lie. Those are the kind of gateway drug to wild swimming. If you start in an outdoor pool and while this is amazing. So i've never get in the in the river and the lakes. I slightly went in the other direction. Although i do still swim in the sea and rivers and lakes lakes still very much. Enjoy that emmerle off. The i guess. The media coverage about the revival of outdoor swimming has focused on the fact that it's it's almost become this middleclass cliche not pointing fingers at adder. Or anything like that but but in in portishead you see in that. Different people across the community. And how'd you make sure you get everyone into the lighter and you this. Brilliant that anyone swimming but how'd you make sure it's something for everyone. We are convinced she run pool.

"Can turn up in. Pay your money and swim. And they've lost a lot of different reasons. But i think as a result of the pandemic people are looking for a little bit of a holiday experience at home and outdoor. Swimming is something that people do associate with being away on holiday and of course lie does have the advantage of being able to open before. Indoor pools stayed under the regulations so there is definitely an increased awareness of and some county councils. I think beginning to recognize the value of what they once had but have lost and are actively working to promote them again. Can i just ask i. I don't think i'd heard of allied. Oh until i moved to london. Are they more prevalent in in. The south of the country are certain parts of the country. And if so why is that sadly i absolutely are. The overwhelming majority of them are clustered around london in the southeast. Southwest particularly devon devon has got a lot of lighters. I think the reasons why there are so few in the north of england are complex. I don't believe it's climate related for instance. There's a pool. In how the sage that is open heated year round so they can do it in the peak district. We can do it anywhere. They are really a complete barometer of wealth. Inequality and i'm sorry to say. I think that's absolutely what is behind this. So they benefit from greater wealth in two ways really local authorities might have a bit more money to spend on them. They might have been a bit less hasty to get rid of them in the first place but also when people are taking over a pool from the local authority when he wants to get rid of it. If you are in a more affluent area you were more likely to have people who can make grassroots donations. You're more likely to have people who've got the time in the skills to be volunteering so sadly that really is the bottom line and i would love. I would love to see more enough manchester manchester's crying out for light. Oh you know that is one of the biggest cities in the uk. Whole city council is just investing significant amounts of money in bringing one of their pulls back into public use. So councils all beginning to recognize that and i would love to see some of the big cities in the north blazing a trail for that. So just for those. Who sort of haven't yet caught the bug.

This par- this trajectory is. I mean is not coincidental. And i mean maybe the revival we don't quite know whether revivals gonna go but it does say something about us a country doesn't it absolutely. I'm you calm. Ignore that facts we will build in these things as public amenities were for the public. I think the best places all the ones where you really see.

MLB Playoffs Preview

"Okay. Let's get to the American theories start today obviously the headliner is the the series I'm going to be lucky enough to do starting at seven o'clock. Tonight we've got the Indians playing host to the Yankees you got Shane Bieber Garrett Cole a good old fashioned. Of Two aces one guy you know the best pitcher on the planet two years ago versus Shane Bieber's the best pitcher on the planet this year, what are you expecting in this series? Yeah. Mean this is going to be one of the best games of the entire postseason. I suspect you know what an unbelievable matchup shame bieber won. The MLB pitching triple crown wins the are strikeouts I gotta do that since Johan Santana and two, thousand six, and he not even be the most dominant picture in this game was Garrett Cole is pretty good. I looked up any postseason series game would match up and I might have missed one but the last. Game. One. Battle with a lower co by the area that I found was two thousand fourteen Clayton Kershaw as eerie won the MVP versus Adam wainwright who had a two three yards that year. So there's been some great ones we had Sherzer Colin game the world series last year, but this is just Terrific game one matchup for me the key thing in this series, and in this game, tonight is going to be how clean they play and I gotta say having watched the Yankees a lot this year they have not performed well on defense I was looking at defensive runs saved and there's no perfect measure of defensive play but the Indians were tied for second best in the regular season defensive run save they have an excellent defensive team Garrett Cole was talking about yesterday how the the Indians don't make mistakes in on the other hand. The Yankee seem to make a lot of mistakes the key guy for me in this series, labor. Taurus who has not had a good season he is not played well, defensively what about for you just some other factor that's jumping out of you. Yeah. I wasn't good point on the defense I watch Erin Moods game session the other day Friday or Saturday they made a bunch of airs and the look on his face was just discussed. Because that's been a problem on your ankles. Yeah. Obviously, it's the Cleveland offense. Are they going to be able to generate enough runs and I'm intrigued because yet they had one of the lower homerun rates in the majors. The Yankees allow the most home runs of any playoff team. You Know Garrett call had some of those homerun issues you know in the middle of the season not so much as last couple starts, but the Yankees do give up run so. That's to me. CLEVELAND'S GONNA have to figure out a way to knock it few the fence Jose Ramirez of course has been red hot Carlos Santana, great regular season, but he's heated up a little bit the last couple of weeks. So that's the key can Cleveland hit any home runs off the New York pitching and can the Yankees hit on the road the numbers the road splits for the Yankees this year are shocking. Great. Point. In fact, we had a note saying Sam. Millard this one of the twenty largest home roads blitz I. Forget how far he went back. This was history X. number of years but the twenty largest. Were Colorado Rockies, teams, and the other was the two thousand twenty so that yeah. Huge toll roads blitz this year. The. White Sox and Oakland Plankton a Lucas G Lido the obvious pick for the white sox start in Oakland Hey seuss Lazaro gets the start the young left-hander for the Oakland athletics we had serling the podcast yesterday and she mentioned the white sox fourteen in our game started by left-handers Lazardo left-hander. So I was a little bit surprised but maybe that's kind of where Oakland is with their rotation right now. Now, they don't have a clear number one I was surprised because Lazaros last appearance was actually in relief so I thought they might use them out of the end. This could be kind of a bullpen series for Bob Melvin right buster they had the lowest era In relief many team you know really deep bullpen saw even the Lazardo starting I would not expect him to go deep into this game maybe even just one time through the rotation.

The Big Story

Youve seen this movie before

"How did we get to the point where remakes and sequels and all sorts of iterations on existing franchises have become such an incredible percentage of all the entertainment created because I know that they've already existed, but this is twenty-seven seventeen top worldwide grosses at the box office Star Wars, the last Jedi beauty and the beast. The fate of the furious, which is sequel number seventy eight despicable me three Jumanji. Welcome to the jungle that is a sequel Spiderman homecoming, which is either a sequel or reboot it's both depending on depending on which way you want to look at it wolf warrior to number eight guardians of the galaxy volume two shirt number nine Thor ragnarok, number ten wonder woman. Yeah, that's global. That's the top ten movies all of them, a sequel or a reboot or in some cases both. So how did it become what changed in the industry that made this the predominant model rather than just like something that Disney might do every once in a while? There's a Cup. Of arguments. The the first argument is that it is more appealing to a studio to produce an existing property. A new version or sequel to something that people already know because it's easier to sell there's less resistance on every level. It's a thing. If you already know the thing, you're more likely to be interested in the thing. The other argument is that the mid range movie has disappeared which is where you used to see many more original concepts and they're either turning on Netflix now like new films from Nicole hall of center Tamara Jenkins, or what is the mid range movie. It would have been made for somewhere between it used to be twenty to sixty million. Now, it's five to twenty. It would have been a smallish film, usually a character study or historical drama that doesn't have battle scenes is about people in rooms or people in, you know, houses having lives and doing things that don't involve capes or murder and the mid range movie even those of mutated into stuff like bird box. The netflix. Which is opposed to puck elliptic thing. With Sandra Bullock walking through a forest. Blindfolded? Arrival would have been amid range movie actually seem screenwriter. Eric Heiser arrival would have been a mid range movie. But instead, it was a massive studio words contender because of what it turned out to be. But I think when they started it out it was going to be a smaller more intimate project. So those films don't get made anymore because twenty million dollars into a movie will get you maybe sixty or eighty this is the old thinking, and so now if you make a guard Guanzhou in thing that costs a hundred and fifty million unless it tanks so spectacularly that. You know, the studio dies it'll probably pull in half a billion to a billion dollars. Right. It doesn't have to be good. But it has to be safer. Bet has to be recognizable. Exactly. So that's part of it. The hangover was a tiny little movie that then became a monster franchise because it was hit. So they made two more. Now, what am I seeing tooth? Who's maybe is a call or something? And in the olden days, they would have stopped after one. He would have just said, oh, that's really cool. This thing made three hundred million dollars for a everybody likes it. Let's go to the next contest. Do another comedy. Exactly. Let's lunch. Something else. When Bradley Cooper was here. Like six months before he was here for another original project that Jim Carey movie called yes-men, the tanked, and he said like it was insane that that Warner was giving this movie two three completely untested. Like, Bradley Cooper, never had a hit and homes and never had a hit. Nobody news at Calvin. Acas was set a couple of comedy cycles or comedy circles in journalists, and they risk that money on this little movie, which couldn't have cost that much, and it was a massive hit. And then they made two more, and they'll probably reboot it in five years with with. I would assume women because that might be interesting. There have been attempts to do a women's version of the hangover bridesmaids is great rough night. There's a few of those the idea of people behaving badly friend circles getting out of control, they'll they'll reboot the hangover in five years. They'll prob. Rebooted with women because that's a smart move because otherwise you have to. I mean, the the gender thing really helps because you create a new universe that doesn't depend on the demands of the original film, you you can bring, you know, most remakes are very very rooted in the expectations of the audience, right because we all wanna be pandered to we own to see the thing that we liked again. That's the governing principle of entertainment. Now, give me more of the thing. I like I understand exactly why the studios do it. When you lay it out that way on the economics and play why do we consume it? Why is our bar? So low nail it doesn't feel like it was always this way. Well, it probably was we just didn't know it. The the difference is that now instead of knockoffs which used to happen. You know, if there was a smoking abandoned, there'd be ten car movies the next year. If there was rocky there'd be five boxing movies, the next year or or sports movies or a wave of underdogs. Portsmouth is actually what did happen stuff like breaking away. And so on now, we just make more Rockies. Yeah. We we really have another one right now creed to is rocky eight. Away that creed was not rocky seven, which is kind of disappointing. And no one can articulate it. Exactly. But the the answer is it's because it's because creed was the only one that Silvester still didn't right. And he didn't script it. It was somebody else's project. He was used beautifully in it. But when Ryan Kugler wasn't available to come back to Crete to Stallone jumped in and wrote it, and it's a rocky movie now, and I think people should be more disappointed by that than they are. That's the crux of why we want to have this. But they're not conversation because they're not an I made fun of when you said at the beginning of this podcast that there would be another Harry Potter, and who would be cast as another Harry Potter. I will watch that Harry Potter movie or it'll probably actually be a TV show. So that they can do it. Yeah. For Justice over eight years and eight seasons, and whatever God, you could go to school with them in real time home, that's a horrible idea. I would watch. So I I agree that it's a bad idea. But I will consume that content. Why it's because you want to see your idea of what it should be validated. And in the end, we find out that it doesn't matter. If it isn't because nobody can imagine. Everybody's complaining about what a movie isn't. And what it shouldn't be. I mean, that's my job is to say actually this. But I hope that I'm coming at it from a perspective of history, and a sense of you know, why you can make this movie why this movie fails or why this movie's succeeds, and how this argument could be applied to other movies and similar genres. I basically, I I'm there to provide context for why you did or didn't like something. I guess, but as far as the reboot thing goes again, it's safer because the curiosity factor has it clipped everything else people want to know, they want to see what the new superman looks like they want to know what the new joker like Joaquin Phoenix is the joker. But Jared Lido is the joker. Well, that's what happens ledger. Yeah joke. They'll Cesar Romero is the joker or Jack Nicholson as the joker. That's the. That's the point. Right. Like my engagement with the stuff is always. Oh, that's interesting or. Yeah. I've seen that. There's like it's a binary. There's no middle ground. There is no mildly successful remake it either works or it doesn't. And it's because we know what it's supposed to look like is because we've been trained by our own lives to want. This thing the way it was supposed to want to watch new stuff. Oh god. Yes. That's all. I want. I crave it, please. Give me some. But why does so many people? Why would so many people prefer to watch a sequel to something that they already know part of it is that you don't have to invest as much. You already have the backstory you don't need to introduce new things. Or if you do you have to do it in a certain way, fix it feel comfortable Spiderman homecoming is an excellent example of that they turned it into an eighties movie. Yeah. Which makes it simultaneously nostalgic of new in a way that this character doesn't need to be. But it works. It's comforting. And you feel the the youth of the character is because he's never been a kid before Spiderman being in high school before in the movies, but he's a child and Tom Holland's performance. I mean, the the actors in his twenties, but he looks like a kid, and you can root for him that way, and it makes it feel new and by having Tony stark introduce him to the two by having Tony stark introduced into the marvel universe in civil war. It was like extending a hand to the franchise and bring it on. And the fact that I know all of this is nuts because it's a two hour movie. And I shouldn't bring all of this stuff with me to this film. But it's not a reboot. It is the what eighteenth chapter in films. That's been going on for a decade. It's part of a huge thing where we are now culturally. Right. It's not just social media and the internet, although that's a huge part of it is part of the it builds expectation, but it's also the fact that this story has been ongoing, and if you missed one you can probably catch up it's not a big deal unless you missed an adventures or captain America movie where all the characters are together you can dip in and out. But if you've been following it all along, it feels really good to know all this stuff. It feels like you're being accommodated in a way that a remake or a sequel or a franchise is supposed to do it. Doesn't bar new entry, but it rewards ongoing participation in the Harry Potter films did the same thing. I mean, they made one of those a year for eight years, right or the there. They started to stagger them apart after a while. Once it got complicated. They were releasing them every year and a half. I don't remember. But I do remember that I saw all of them. I didn't really like all of them. Did they didn't get good until the third one? And we're at a place now culturally where you can say that about a television show. Well, you have to watch the for six episodes. No, you don't you actually don't. But if you don't you'll miss it. And if everybody's talking about it, they and you want to see it. And if it's a thing that everybody talked about twenty years ago that that little tug is still there. So when fuller house comes back, which is okay. Comfort food at best. Right. It's a remake. It's a it's a new season of a show that people other show that they've brought back which is like there's a list of them. Yeah. Fuller houses. I for me. It's the best example because it's one of those things where when you hear about it. It sounds insane. Why would anyone care? And then you find out exactly how many people do care, which is why it exists, and whether they really wanna see it or just kind of curious about it that doesn't matter as long as they click on it for Netflix. The Netflix has made it worth their while. And we're going to get more of it. And we're going to get more of an and that Spurs the need to make more things come back. So there's a new charmed and there's a new. Do not on Netflix. But it's it's all part of the culture, if you can reboot a TV show, you can make millions of dollars right off the bat and the Handmaid's tale just got a built in audience through its TV show success. And now there's a book sequel Margaret Atwood is writing a Handmaid's tale sequel, which is one of the few things that I'm genuinely interested in because she won't be basing it on the TV series. That's the important part. It will it will still be set in her world. I mean, I don't need the answers to what happens in the Handmaid's tale. It's all in the first book, we know what we need to know about that book was a finished work. And you know, it is because it's been taught in schools for thirty years. Sure. It's a self contained narrative. And if there was one artist in Canada didn't need to follow the two reasons for producing sequels and remakes that you've just outlined, theoretically, it should be Margaret what she can do whatever she wants. She absolutely can. But I can also I can see the testament emerging as a response to the show, but that's me understanding the pull the remake. I would rather just think about it. Myself than have to watch it executed because the odds are won't be the thing that I wanted it to be when beauty and the beast, the stage version came to Toronto I got to go to a preview, and nobody told us that the thing was three hours long that it was a massive reconstruction of an eighty two minute movie. And when the first deviation came which is slightly longer dialogue scene between bell and her father. There was a kid. There was a child very must have been very unsettled up in the mezzanine who started saying, no, no, no, no, no. This isn't it and had to be shushed. And it's like, that's the brain. And that's everybody in these things, you really only want to see the thing you like, and you want more of it. But you don't that? I mean, the kid didn't they could be just wanna beauty, and the b you can give this opportunity this child who I mean, this would have been was after The Lion King. Right. So it was the mid to late ninety s and this childhood only been raised on this movie. That was only, you know at most ten years old, and he didn't want more wanted the same thing. And that's all of us. But we won't admit it. So we're still curious. We're kinda wanna go see what the new thing is if it's the old thing. And if it's not the old thing we want to know, how we can be comforted by whatever it is that we loved about the old thing, and it never occurs to people to just pull out the old thing and watch it again because those are everywhere, and that's that's my objection. And yet when Pete's dragon comes out, or when the Paddington movies come out, and they are beautiful perfect realizations of the spirit of the project, even though they are not the original thing than you do reconnect with the thing you loved about it. And I think it's also very telling that those are projects for children. Yeah. We're all children. Now, we want to be right. Like, isn't that the whole thing? The the lie of the the government is that you want a strong like what what's the argument? The Republicans are the strong father. And the Democrats are the are the nurturing mother, and you can only have one at a time. But we see what is strong father looks like, and it's horrible and we retreat can we want whatever
