Charlie Kirk: Coronavirus stimulus
"And you have Schumer Pelosi. In Biden one hundred twenty five years, Charlie Kirk of failure, unmitigated failure, swap failure and I. Think of my kids. You met my son. He's twenty one years old. My daughter's eighteen and I would think about your America their America and when I say you know, live free or die, American, the world on the brink I'm not joking. And very specifically will be probably the biggest choice election by far in my lifetime, and maybe since eighteen sixty, and there's a lot at stake We can go through the issues if you want, but it's. It's there's there's not one issue we agree on that. I can think of for the most part yet, and you wrote this, and it just really sent chills down my spine. You wrote this book to sound an alarm as a warning. Warning to my fellow patriots about the left's undying commitment turn America into a land, our parents, founders and framers wouldn't recognize it. It's perfectly put, and that's the direction that they're headed on page twenty seven. You have a great part about how Ben Franklin says we ever republic. If you can keep it, can you talk more about how this truly is? A referendum election in some sense and the left is trying to do to our country. Well the the story about Franklin's interesting, because it's, it's the constitutional convention and somebody says he comes out one days, says, is it a monarchy republic republic? If you can keep it Reagan, I quote him off. When I give speeches, said Freedom Charlie and you know this is but one generation away from extinction. And you know when if you want understand if socialism is adopted if their stated goal is adopted America as we know, it then becomes unrecognizable look, I can understand psychologically. There's a component of maybe people that that have been indoctrinated in schools, and you're great at this because you're going in to hostile environments every day, and you're saying you know what there's another way of thinking here, so maybe the idea that people think Charlie that some things are oh, everything's going to be free and they're gonNA forgive my loans at I'll have a guaranteed government job guaranteed government food. How did obamacare workout now? We're GONNA have Medicare for all or or double down on the stupidity of Obamacare and guaranteed retirement. Guaranteed vacation sounds great. But simple math shows you that you'll never get there. And that's why in the Fourth Chapter of the book did this whole history of socialism which is a history of failure? The point is look at the issues. If if we're talking about law and order. They've cited in Portland in Seattle and new. York and Chicago with the radicals. Joe Biden his yet that I know of said one good thing about the ninety nine percent of cops protect and serve and put their lives on the line for us every day. You're right. Okay, so law and order taxes. He's pledging to raise your taxes through the roof. That will destroy the economy Then they're gonNA just add all the bureaucracy. The Donald Trump spent almost four years. Eliminating that'll be gone. That means nobody's GONNA WANNA DO Business. That's why the Biden Obama economy was so bad. Then you look at where now energy independent for the first time in seventy five years with a number, one producer of energy in the world will lose that for sure We'll shut down coal fracking. Oil Gas exploration production those tens of millions of jobs high paying jobs career jobs for people. Then it's about amnesty. Or the United Sanctuary states of America versus Border Security and law and order of never mind foreign policy. We haven't even touched that part yet, so. There's a lot at stake. If those plans stated plans are implemented. America will go down the past you know. The Trash bin of history as Reagan, said Freedom One generation away from extinction we will. It I shudder to think what will happen the three you and your children by kids, and and maybe one day grandkids. ARE READY FOR THAT And I love the framing, because as the founder said either we're GonNa live free and defendant right now, or we're gonNA. Have a country that you know. We don't WanNa live it, and that's really the framing. That is so important right now, and you talk about and I'm really pleased about this. Shawn because I think we have forgotten about the Russia hoax too quickly in. In the conservative movement, you have been the leader on this every night. You were covering it. You didn't let us forget you help. Muller Accountable, you had investigative journalism and it just seemed that an Oxana names, but other conservatives just kind of drifted away from like Oh. That's what happened happened. You have two chapters on this in the book. Can you talk about that? Yeah I mean I call it Charlie, the the biggest corruption abuse of power scandal in history and the Ukraine was oh. Okay, we failed with Muller after three years. We won't. We won't even bother with a special prosecutor not to I'm going backwards here but to get to Ukraine. You? Know they're talking about quid pro quos, but you have to ignore their presidential candidate on video saying you're not getting a billion US tax payer dollars unless you're fire. That prosecutor is named Shokhin. WHO's investigating my son Hunter who went on a and said? Do you have any experience in oil? No Gas, no energy, nope, any experience in Ukraine. Nope, why are you being paid millions? No, because you dad, so there was a quid pro quo and millions of dollars for the Biden I call crime family. That's exactly right, so. Listen and China's even worse. You get to this whole thing what we now know and I believe what's coming. It's like, and this is where the media's corrupt because. They're just the propaganda wing of all things democratic. Socialist. We now know and have all the evidence that we'd ever need is that they protected their favorite candidate. Hillary Clinton. For things you and I and everybody you know that follows you and you have a massive audience would. Literally never get away with. If you had subpoenaed emails Charlie Kirk and you decided to delete them, and you decided to acid. Wash your hard drive with something. I had never heard about bleeped bleach bit and bust up your devices with hammers. You'd go to jail. If you violated the espionage act, you'd go to jail. They protected her. Then the narrative began we now know began in August. We know crossfire hurricane representatives actually went to brief. President Trump General Flynn. Flynn on national security, but they were there to try and get information on trump and Russia, the most amazing part of this, because the Democrats and the media live for all these years is that they knew and they said and they wrote, and they even testified. There was never any evidence, but there was a dirty Russian dossier. And now we know even the New York Times acknowledged full full of Russian disinformation and that was used. And they were warned not to use it, but high ranking people abusing their power, wanting to take out candidate, trump, transition, team, trump, and then deep into the Presidency Donald Trump. They use the dirty Russian misinformation dossier to ruin Carter pages life and roomed his civil liberties and constitutional rights, but more importantly to spy on candidate trump, and then they had their insurance policy. The fact that the mob in the media ignores it is beyond comprehension. I have so I have two chapters. One is on the Russia hoax, and the other is on this whole impeachment witch hunt. And I want everybody in your audience to understand one thing here if I can get one point across. Yeah, they hate Donald Trump, but they hate us more. They think we are as Peter. Struck, said the smell by the way I probably shop at Walmart say money. Why not you have a woman I love Walmart I love COSCO's. I Love I love it all. And I've shopped there my whole life I mean people always stopped me when I'm in a grocery? So, what are you doing here? Shopping? Wa I like to eat a cracks me up. So but think about that. smelly Walmart Shoppers while irredeemable deplorables, wow! Bitter Americans as Obama said that WANNA cling to their God. I'm guilty their Second Amendment Rights Guilty Bibles and religion I'm guilty of that, too. But. It's contempt for your audience. It's contemporary my audience. It's because they knew better. And they will ling. This was an attempted coup. Now do I think there's going to be arrests and prosecutions I? Do spend much slower than any of us would have liked, but the evidence is overwhelming. It's incontrovertible sad actually that this could happen. That was going to be my follow up. Question Sean because when I travel and we get thousands of e mails a on this topic. When are people going to go to jail? And can you give me insight on this? Can you give us any clues any crumbs that we're starting to see from Durham? It's I call them. It's funny. You say crumbs because call them the the Attorney General Bar breadcrumbs. It's like Hansel and Gretel. Remember. We're we're trying to follow and see the trail exactly yeah. He did say that the president was spied on. It did happen illegally. The. Think about this. If you go before Judge Judy I wouldn't WANNA lot because Judge Judy I. I've met her once she'll eviscerate. You I watched her show. You. Don't go before a court. The information that you have not verified. It actually said at the top of a FISO Warren Charlie. It says verified. Okay. We now know the dossier was unverifiable. The sub source we now know, said this this bar talk. We were making this up. This was never meant for anything and again Hillary paid for it funneled money separate issue. And so, what is going to happen I don't have a crystal ball but I. do know all of the facts that are in the public. Are Enough to indict many of the names that your audience is most familiar with. I would argue. Komi McCabe struck page. I'd like to know a clapper. Brennan's role in all of this ends up being and and others. The more fascinating deep question is. Will they get to that January fifth twenty seventeen meeting inside the Oval Office? This is when member Biden said George Stephanopoulos Oh I. Don't know. Anything about this, you know this whole impeachment Russia thing. He was the one same. Bring up the Logan Act fifteen days later Susan Rice in that meeting did the Cya memo the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated. Obama in that meeting shot Sally Age by saying a He. He knew everything about the Kislyak Michael Flynn call. If we look. To sum it up. I think we're GONNA get there because the evidence. Is that overwhelming? If we don't. I fear for the country? Because of you. GonNa Raid Manafort's home predawn raid and you're going to raid Roger Stone's home. For lying to Congress by the all many of the names I mentioned were referred for the same crime and you're gonNA. Pull it twenty nine guys in tactical gear, frogmen and tip off CNN cameras and. Have a biased jury for person. We won't have equal justice and equal application of our laws, and worse than that Charlie is. We lose our constitution. Yes, all our laws are are predicated on next great document and some `perfect, but it creates the path to perfection at a more perfect union so. Long answers. I'M GONNA talk. Show I love it. No, this is what our audience needs to hear, and and thank you for that and look I I completely agree because if we do not have people and I, say this as carefully as I can in handcuffs for what they did Donald Trump then I I will lose faith in the American justice system I. Don't want that and I don't want revenge I don't retribution I want people to be held accountable and I would want the same if someone did this to Barack Obama because it should never happen to a leader ever. Yes. and. They've gone after every single trump friend confidant, and yet if you oppose Donald Trump you get different treatment, talk a lot about the constitution in your book and the founding of our country, Sean going to be honest, I've been very let down by some of these supreme. Court decisions lately Can you comment on that and the importance to get more people like Kavanagh? Who's actually ruled brilliantly? Unlike John Roberts. I! I'm a little. I don't know what's happening. Roberts I have my theory I guess I have my sources people that. have their own ideas based on some knowledge? For whatever reason and I think this goes back to the obamacare decision. He has allowed. How the court appears to influence his decision making. I also sense with no evidence whatsoever. You're not a big fan of president trump, but that should not come into his thinking. Now. If getting rid of bureaucracy and lowering taxes and energy, independence, and securing our borders, and law and order are all part of this election. Let me tell you another big part of it. And it's you know we're taping this ninety. Whatever days away from the Election Day, I what about and we got asked. What about the Supreme Court? Yes, I go through a whole list I. Forget what paid maybe sixty seven I forget. A. In the book. Of. All the things Democrats would do if they're getting power one, is they? WanNa, stack the courts. Get rid of the Electoral College. And I. What, they're saying they. WanNa do is scary. They used to hide it Charlie. When I every single Liberal Democrat running for office, they would run to the left in the primary. They race back to the center, but you knew they wanted the left. There now openly embracing the most radical elements in the country and you know. Unfortunately we're watching it all. Play out nightly on TV and and that sad what I see happening when I think we have to remind a trump supporters that these are not trump appointed justices, a gorsuch I think ruled incorrectly on one ruling. That's it besides that gorsuch and cavenaugh have been tremendous and terrific verses Roberts. I just think we have to give the audience a sense. Sense of continued conviction that the trump appointed justices will continue to rule correctly and Clarence. Thomas and you know the the Thomas Family. They get no credit at all. I mean what he has done. And can you comment on that? 'cause I, E, you've actually been you open my eyes to that like eight years ago and I never learned about Clarence Thomas as a high schooler until you I mentioned it just as a quick aside on his incredible career. I like to do on TV and antidote on radio, too. Sometimes I call it the Hannity history, lesson 'cause I lived through all of this. I know this is going to see. You're not even thirty three, but my radio journey started in nineteen eighty-seven crazy right. Now on my twenty fifth year of Fox, I didn't think I last two. So I feel very blessed. As a side note if you haven't read my grandfather's son. Which is about Clarence Thomas is life. It's amazing. But. You know it's interesting because him and Scalia. To my opinion, my to most favorite justices in my lifetime. Scalia this incredible wit and genius and understanding and. They got a little acerbic side to when when he was questioning Clarence Thomas always set by quietly. What they called a high tech lynching at the time, the more modern. Let it. You gotTA. Remember Yeah. And you know. It was then Senator Ted Kennedy you know Robert Bork's America the borking of America. That was Clarence Thomas. Now we see it more recently cavenaugh. It exposes. The, who is Joe Biden? Who is his team? Because Clarence Thomas and Justice Scalia or the people we need on that court. We call them constitutionalists or originalists, the original intent, not people that would sight foreign law as liberal justices have done or not people that feel that they can rule by judicial Fiat and dictate or legislate from the bench. Democrats always wanted the court to do that which they could never. Do legislatively or win at the ballot box and that's why they want. We call them. Activists Justices Clarence Thomas. has shown a fidelity to the Constitution at the Antony Scalia. That is beyond enviable And the differences styles always interesting, too because Justice Thomas will always be quiet. That's very few questions. Anthony Scalia was in there in a wrestling with people. I don't know about John Roberts. I can't get into it, but I do believe the next president United States is a very good chance. You have a lot of older justices may want to retire. And I think that the next this election in just three short months. That's on the ballot and that's that's generational now. And Sean I think we have to pressure the Biden campaign to do what trump did and release a list of justices I mean president trump was so transparent and Joe Biden hasn't done it yet. Intentionally, of course, because he'll probably put repeated to lieber something on the United States Supreme Court I mean as horrifying as that might be so in two two quick closing question Sean and thank you for being so generous with your time anchorage, everyone you know. Know go by live, free or die. the first is this. Can you just talk about? We are heading into the election. A lot of trump supporters. They're failed. They're falling victim. They suppression pulse I wish that wasn't the case, but it seems like the memory of two thousand sixteen as faded where people forget. We were down by double digits. Can you just give a little vote of confidence to some of our listeners out there? That think we're just losing. I WANNA. Give the vote of confidence, but I want people to feel this way. I want people to think I'll use a football analogy that our mutual friend Linda that you know. Who's your biggest fan? My radio producer? He's amazing. Amazing, but she doesn't even know how many points you get a touchdown, so I'm giving these football analogies. I, want this election. I want people to feel the way I feel which is. We're on our own twenty. Two minutes to go. We have no time outs We're down by six. We got a cross. The plane marched down the field, cross the plane and hit the extra point to win. So if people feel a sense of genuine urgency and worry and concern, I'm cool with that because fear often as a great motivator, not irrational field fear, but if people do not vote, you will get the government that they're telling you. They're going to give you believe. That that is their agenda. To be a Republican and win. You GotTa always use this analogy got to run the table I gotTA. Get Florida Georgia North Carolina can't win without Ohio. No Republican's ever become president without it right? You got hold Iowa then you got pick off Pennsylvania Wisconsin hopefully Michigan maybe MINNEA- Minnesota will be play. Maybe the city of Arizona will be in play. By Joe Biden reference for those of you. That didn't get. We got a hold Arizona Gopher Nevada New Mexico. New Hampshire and Maine's second congressional district. If every single mom, this is a battle cry. You started out this interview with this. I wrote this book not because I like writing books. My last book I donated every Penny I made to charity I don't care. It's not that. This is a tipping point. Charlie this is I, don't. See if these policies are implemented how America recovers. Irreparable harm the to the rule of law to our courts to our economy, they want to wipe out the lifeblood of of the world's economy. This this promise of socialism and I go into such detail about how it's always failed. Here's a quick socialism of example. Member obamacare. Keep your doctor keep your plan. Save on average twenty five hundred dollars a year per family right? Okay. Millions lost their doctors. Millions lost their plans. We're all paying about two hundred percent more and add to that. Forty percent of Americans almost forty percent have only one obamacare Biden Carriage James Choice now. How did they do with that promise? Medicare is going broke. How did they do it? That promised social security. Charlie hate the break this here. He paying into it. You probably won't get it I. Barely Skate through, and they might give me ten cents until they means tested and then take it back, How does it? How did Liberal government work in New York City with all the anarchy cutting a billion dollars, so please? How's IT WORKING IN CHICAGO? All. These liberal cities have where the violence we've been talking about takes place. They all have one thing in common. They've been run by Liberal Democrats for decades right. Most of these states have been run into the ground by Liberal Democrats for decades. If you WANNA know what America will look like if Biden Bolshevik Bernie. Pelosi Schumer and Bozo. That team gets place look at new. York state and city look at Chicago the City Illinois. The State Look at California. Look at Oregon. Look at Portland, the city. Look at Seattle. Look at the state of Washington. Yes. And I. Love this country too much. You know it's an all hands on deck moment and Every everyone of you've got this connection with younger people in this country. You have this incredible. A credible platform you built, and it's become powerful and meaningful and transformative to the country, and you're going out there, and you're fighting on these college campuses and you. You know it's not easy to be in the middle of a I call it a shift. Show all the time, but let's well put, but you do it. And it's freedom works. Every time you give up freedom for security, you lose your freedom because the security that they're offering. These promises that can never ever be fulfilled. In America. The land. I'll close with this unless you want to go further I can keep going the. Barry Farber who was a mentor of mine. Just recently passed away like ninety ninety one. And he always said there's never been a country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power and abused at less than the United States well I add. A country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power abused at less, but used it to advanced human condition. The reason America is great and exceptional. If I can say that today, it's not perfect, but it's great. An exceptional is because of its people, and because of the fundamentals of liberty and freedom. So that? Natural rights versus government or rights, natural rights come from God doubt by our Creator. Life Liberty pursuit of happiness while you can't pursue happiness these days in Chicago New York Moreland Seattle. So there's a lot on the line. I love your audience. I'm so thankful for all you're doing, and you've got a great team that you building review and you're out there fighting the fight and I just urge you guys. Just fight like your country depends on it. Because America's, we know it. It's all hanging in the balance. Yet was Sean. You've been so generous the last quick thing I defend the president all the time personally as a person. Can you comment on that because I've had the opportunity to meet him? not as much as you obviously and get to know him, but a lot of people here misrepresentations in lies about who he is as a human being. Let's close on this note. Can you just mention one or two things that that people can take away from that? You know first of all. It's interesting. Nobody seems to understand Donald trump yet. They don't want to understand. I mean Donald Trump. The Dog Bites the beasts, things you feeling sad or get cancer. You Complain Trump. I mean that's how saying the leftist. But here's a guy that is so unique he this guy is like a soon nami force of energy like I've never met my life. The most distinct and unique quality he's had is as president. You mentioned the Supreme Court. He put those people that he said he put. He cut the bureaucracy as he said he'd caught, and he cut the taxes as he said he'd cut. He did the North Dakota. A keystone pipelines Anwar Likey said he would. He's building the wall or almost four hundred miles. A wall by the by election will be over four hundred miles. He found a way it was. It was an uphill climb He said he wanted to pull us out of foreign conflicts, but not back away from evil defeated. The Caliphate took out. Baghdadi and Associates took out Sola Mani took out the Al. Qaeda leader in Yemen. So? What makes him special and unique in terms of presidency is that he is who you see is who you get. The guy that's fights on twitter is the guy that's fighting for a better trade. Deal the guy that fights. Against Liberal Democrats and the media mob is the same guy is fighting to keep his promises that to me makes him the most unique transformative political figure in our lifetime. And Right now. The. We tip the scales. You have a choice. It's never been a bigger choice. He will keep his promises. Coronas been a little bit of a curve ball to the world, but even that ten days after the first case, the only guy that I know of thought about a travel ban will be donald trump. They were teaching at the time and Joe Binder Biden was call them Sinophobic, so he's a man of his word. He's a man that will fight to his last dying breath for this country and the promises he made, and that makes them in my view very transformative. Men will.

"lieber" Discussed on Amazing FBA
"Which is great day themselves are getting back to normal, which is really awesome, but one thing I will say is there isn't a slowdown, so yes, you're getting back to work. Yes, people are getting out there. There going shopping everything like that, but we haven't seen a slowdown on Amazon. So what that tells me is that people most likely did invest in those Amazon prime accounts. Maybe they didn't have before. They're more rely on on. The probably were before all this happened, and that's not going to change if anything, it's probably about to get a lot bigger just as people adjust to. This new normal is what we're really seeing here. Very interesting a spike to chocolate Jason Somerville. who used to work in, wall? Wall Street, so you should look at various the bigger economic picture, and they mergers and acquisitions advisor, so they sell their businesses to private equity, so that very much aware of what the smart money is doing, and this one is very keen on e commerce business, 'cause He said the okay. That was a massive spike and adoption of e commerce has percents of retail across the globe and Trina America I think in UK, even bigger percentage small country, so it's not hard to ship goods around. Meeting is going to be sticking that even when things about to normal whatever that means and he thinks that he forty percent of that will stick and I guess depends how you define the word normal right because we're back to what you'll find is the new way I guess you got weird. Social distancing in in cues, certain places on open yet. There's a nervousness in the air. Particularly I think with the disrespect for the come to the US and the UK have POPs, not had the best crisis compared to countries like Germany, so there's probably a degree of nervousness there and. And so, What's interesting is the degree to wish. Commerce is new gains of land. If you like a a robust and a steak, so what you're saying sort of reinforces that picture. That's very very interesting, so we'll have to maybe get you back in three months and see what's going on that, so this is all going to be hostage to fortune. So tell me about particularly categories then because obviously ECOMMERCE has.
PSYCHOLOGY OF A PANDEMIC
"This is Alan Lieber Te. When we talk about what's happened we have to start with What we would call the global trauma that happened when the coronavirus started to change our experience in the world and from there we would go to what we call the global shock which was the shock that all of a sudden this is real and this is really happening in our lives are changing and then we moved from there to global grief which was a morning that we couldn't go and do the same things we used to do because we had stay at home stand shelter and all of a sudden thinks it changed and there was an unforeseen Element that was dangerous that we couldn't fight with an army or we couldn't fight in the other ways and so that has led to All of us having different different experience. Some what we're used to and that's called Angst. It's caused anxiety it's caused depression. It's caused a whole slew of different sort of symptoms in reaction to this sort of emotional haze that happens when you're experiencing grief in this sense were exploited experiencing grief and a global way as well because every time we look for answers or push back into the not knowing into the unknown of. What's the next steps are going to be I? I love the idea I mean. I don't love the idea but I'm intrigued by the way of a global trauma that you know. I mean obviously individuals experienced trauma. But this really in at least in my lifetime I mean I guess you could say wars and things like that but this is something. That's you know. Wars are specific to certain countries and certain specific areas. This this really is this. Pandemic has gone over the entire planet. That's right and so a sense. We're looking for solutions. Because we're a solution oriented and very resilient country but in this instance were dealing with something that is Making it more difficult for us to be resilient Because we don't have the ways in which to resolve this Sooner I think that's where a lot of the anger is coming from. A LOT OF THE GRIEF. Also people are really upset. Like what you know. There's we have to do something you know. There's there's a great line. Did you ever see the movie night of the living dead? Yes and the zombies. Come out of the grave and they're attacking this house in. This woman is freaking out in the house. And she says there's gotta be someone we can call it the funniest line in the movie because it was it was just great. And that's what it feels like. Don't you want just go. There's gotta be somebody we can call and I think that that is the element of that disconnect. 'cause there really isn't anyone to call at this point in time and we're watching the news or reading the paper watching the Internet and looking for a semblance of an answer that we can sort of build a framework around to understand and hopefully have some relief emotional relief from this. Some of the people I work with are experiencing nightmares anxiety. Depression of and all those issues along with PTSD and other sorts of psychological aspects are Becoming more pronounced because of this unforeseen issue is changing what they've known and most people what we've known which is you know. Were able to get NARCAN and go places. Visit with people go to places where we normally have our ritual of shopping or going to work and having meaningful relationships around interactions on yes been frustrated with traffic and other sorts of things but at this point in time all of of that stuff is kind of a wash because it's all different. It is really different. Like I haven't hugged anyone other than my wife and my daughter at my house in a couple of months. That's an odd thing and telling. My daughter went for a walk with her yesterday. And I said not only am I. Distancing myself from the other people walking. I don't even want to look in the eye and I noticed that I was looking away. It's like I was embarrassed that I was distancing myself from them like they. They were defective in some way. Because they might have this and I wasn't even sometimes I cannot go hello through my mask and I'm okay but yesterday I just couldn't even look at them beating feel a sort of angst of being home so much and not being able to start to continue in move out that inner resiliency that we have as a country as a population that the United States is embarked on always had. We're not really experienced that so much at this point I was wondering how many people When they're when they're home because your home and you've got a lot of hours in the day to fill in a in. A new way are are are. They becoming more introspective. Is it you know as it forcing people to be alone with their own thoughts which can be like really profound or also really unpleasant not just about the virus but just their own thoughts. It's like what's my life about. I would think you'd see a lot of people start to question. The basic tenants of their entire existence in some way. Because they have the time to do it. I think you're absolutely right because I think that from what I'm hearing people are looking at their lives and they're seeing that they're able to have a light but not necessarily do all the things run around. Do all the things that we used to do. there's a very famous psychiatrist. Psychotherapists Carl Young talked about the transcendent function of the personality. And we're sort of pushed into that place of having transcend our circumstances and we we have to look at it. Behooves us to look at? What are the things that are fulfilling us in the things that are are providing us with a nerd emotional nutrients and how much that will help us dealing with the present circumstances knowing that we just don't know so how do we connect meaning purpose? And what are the things that will help us Get THROUGH. This is really an important issue. It does seem like that. I mean I. I am sort of somebody that is able to spend a lot of time by myself and not feel like. I'm missing out on anything but I know there's quite a few people that don't live that way. Expe- you know it's like well. What distraction am I going to do next and I've got to go here and I'm busy this idea of being busy as an interesting concept because you when you're constantly busy and you've got this thing you know this idea of Maybe I don't even know if it's just accomplishment of just being busy sometimes it's just being busy to be distracted and not be present That it must create a lot of problems for people you know and you then now. You're seeing people protesting they can't they can't they can't they. Can't sit home. They're actually going a little nuts. It's like I you know when I see a sign of somebody. I need a haircut really that bad right. I cut my hair and I did a terrible job so I think you're bringing up a really good point which is after we are going through this global guilt immer also mirroring and having a parallel process with what's happening in the world. What happens is we ended up in this place of Anticipatory Reef and you made have lots of feelings about that with your children. In with your family you can feel lots of different things in terms of what the situation is and then how that gets played out in the family system.
Make Australia Gay Again
"Okay. Jeremy. So you found these stamps. They're clearly very gay What what's the deal like? Where do they come from? I've never heard of this Gay Kingdom what is it where is it and how can I move there? Are you messing with this? Jeremy is even a real thing. It's actually real and I've been working all day and night to find out more. I've called experts from the United Nations. The Council on Foreign Relations. I've made burner phones. My apartment's walls are covered and post it. Notes detailing epic story behind this kingdom yarn. Did you connect them John? It's GonNa ask the same thing. Yes it's required and after lots of law sleep. I think I finally have some answers. Hermit sexual people have honestly endeavoured everywhere to merge ourselves in the social life of surrounding communities and to be treated equally. This is an excerpt from the declaration of Independence of the gay and Lesbian Kingdom of the coral sea islands. A nation created for life liberty the pursuit of happiness. And all things gay well technically. It's a micro nation. So we'll micro nation is a place that declares that they are a nation but aren't recognized by other countries So it's basically someone walks out into their front yard and they're like my front yard is a nation In their mind they are their own country but they don't really have any recognition or any kind of Legitimacy in terms of the global stage this is Derrick Thomas. I tracked him down after he made fun video online about the gay and Lesbian Kingdom. I created a youtube channel. That has an ongoing series on micro nations and kind of the funny stuff that they get up to so there see land of land lower Malaysia. Lieber Land Danica in the Game Lesbian Kingdom of the Cross island. Derek told me that this gay kingdom was born in two thousand four when Australia passed a law saying that marriage was strictly between a man and a woman with gay marriage all the rage in America. The changes here a designed to thwart any similar attempts legal recognition. At Dav aside their community is facing a new wave way of homophobia. Here's John Howard. The prime minister at the time. The definition of marriage is something that should not a time potentially be subject to redefinition will change so in an attempt to protect against future gay marriages the law said marriage is by definition between a man and a woman and every single wedding ceremony in Australia. I kid you not that definition had to be like at your wedding you would need to say the words marriage. According to law in Australia is the Union of a man and a woman. That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard in so romantic really but Derek said it actually kind of backfired and drew a lot more attention from activists about gay marriage than ever before Australia including one group in two thousand and four a group of gay rights activists who were attending the Brisbane. Gay Pride Festival Were frustrated with two thousand four marriage amendment act in Australia. They got on a boat. Well a seaplane That they christened the gay flower sailed it out to an island in the coral sea islands. Territory called CATO. Island planted a flag and said this is our country now Gay Marriage is legal. And that's kind of how the gain lesbian keenum of coral sea islands
Doctors Have Injected DNA-Editing CRISPR Into a Live Person's Eye
"Tell me why Chris so awesome. It's really cool because crisper. Is this really powerful? Gene editing technique that allows doctors to make really precise changes in our genetic code. And so it's got incredible potential for treating lots of diseases right. It is actually not an exaggeration to say that crisper could revolutionize medicine in future in today. You have brought us another crisper milestone yet. Mattie get this for the first time scientists have used crisper to try to editor Jean while the DNA is still inside the body which is wild because until now offer crisper treatments for things like cancer or sickle cell disease. Doctors had to remove the cells. They wanted to change. The patient's bodies edit them in the lab and then put them back in right for this time. Hopefully the editing will take place inside the I of a patient who is almost completely blind due to a genetic disease. Called Lieber Congenital Amoroso's the experimental treatment was done by doctors at the Casey Institute in Portland. Oregon. The hope is that the crisper will edit or fix the mutated gene that causes the disease and potentially restore the patients
Is Zion Living Up to the Hype for the Pelicans?
"Were in Dallas for the pelicans overtime loss to the Mavericks. Second night of a back to back for New Orleans obviously but we didn't see the Zion. We've sort of been spoiled by over the last month. So what did you get from Zion? On Wednesday night. I saw someone who had to go through a little bit of adversity. There's two different things working against him in that Dallas Game One. It was the first time he played on a back to back. You didn't see his legs under him. Early actually play but gets the block on Williamson Williamson. Took his time getting up court. You may be subbing out of the ball game here. He is drew and Lonzo Ball. We're GONNA come on up to him. Hey man you you're right you you tired. Are you going to play? You GotTa pick one. The other thing. Going against him was Dallas they started Maxi Kluber alongside of kristaps porzingis specifically for Zion Williamson two. That might have been forcing a psychotic burst that is just perfectly played deep that still by Dallas Cleveland's doing A. They went to the formula. That's been working. Which is the. We're GONNA get the tallest guy we have can defend him to do it. And then have another seven footer. Awesome plus footer at the Rim Ryan got blocked inside again. It's not possible in less. Cleber is being this physical and allowing time for kristaps ticket over there. Lieber six ten obviously porzingas seven three. Those have been the only really match ups that have given him problems when they played the box. Janas guarded him and then you have the Lopez twins behind him. Protecting the RIM defers Lakers game. Anthony Davis guarded him. And you had jovial and Dwight rim so that combination kind of went against his favor so walk me through a little bit of the process on the back to back portion of it because this is obviously part of the Adjustment For Zion. So where do you find the line? If you're the PELICANS in trying to get him experienced doing things like back to backs that he'll be asked to throughout his career and then also sort of adjusting him since he is still getting fresh on the court after an injury yeah so initially David Griffin the PELICANS executive vice president of basketball operations who should have a shorter title. It's a mouthful say every time I don't know I mean if you're going to have a title let's go big with it like if I'm going to have a business card the whole front of it's going to be my title and the backs. Just going to say fits. There's not not my first name. Just I'm pretty sure that's what his business card says. I haven't seen one but I'm pretty sure that's it has to read like that initially As I was coming back from the injury. Grif said he wasn't there. Were probably going to take it easy on back to backs. Now the good thing that kind of worked into their favor there was January. Twenty second was when he made his debut since then the Tuesday Wednesday back to back that they just had was the first time they had a back to back so they got to let him get games under his belt. He mentioned to his own Tuesday. You know I have to do the recovery if I want to perform the way that I'm capable of performing as you try to push for or is this your mutual agreement Little bit of both but I need a push for myself because I gotTa do the recovery of I want to be able to perform. We do every night with that. Being said coming off the knee injury there were reports that he was learning how to walk differently. How to run differently? I mean when they're watching him and they're monitoring and what are they looking for his indicators of his health very funny to me because I think George Sodano said that I think on ESPN broadcast and it just kind of blew up. He's learning how to walk and anybody who's been through physical therapy at any point that I for any sort of knee. Injuries foot injury. Whatever it is can tell you. They will relearn how to walk in physical therapy. The learning how to walk and run differently was more about little things in his gate that they wanted to fix. The biggest thing that they really wanted to correct at that time was how he landed when you go back and watch how he landed at. Duke with these huge one handed slam traffic. He's landing on one foot one of the big things you see. Now when he goes up for a dunk whether it's an alley whether he's just throwing it down to hands. He tries to land on two feet as much as possible. Zeile yeah that the to hand flush and a great entry fee for Lonzo Ball over Kunst buck to finish that would KUPA gotta be thinking. What in the world so. It's little things that maybe you don't know at nineteen years old that the Pelicans are trying to instill in him so they can take a little bit of stress off of his knees. The biggest thing you just said is nineteen if you listen to Zion. He'll make sure he tells you. He's nineteen in just about every other interview. I feel like I mean but doesn't right like we are so busy trying to make him either the savior of a lead. That doesn't need to be saved or the reason that we're over. Hyping somebody to the point that people ridicule how much we talk about it but you look at it at some point. Say this is a nineteen year old kid. We're talking about that is absolutely crushing in a limited sample size. So let's turn the tone positive here for a second you're looking at a nineteen year old kid. What he's doing is unprecedented right. It's absolutely unprecedented. Feel like every other night we were finding ways to start a sentence with Zion Williamson. Doing something and we ended it with Michael Jordan or Shaquille O'Neill or Tim Duncan or wilt. Chamberlain the goes on and on and on. And you're like that doesn't make sense.
Harvard Professor's Arrest Raises Questions About Scientific Openness
"So it's May of Twenty fifteen. And a researcher named Chichaou. Shing is at his home near Philadelphia. She is a physicist at Temple University who studies SUPERCONDUCTIVITY SPECIAL MATERIALS. That can sometimes lead electricity flow through them with no resistance. There's a ton of applications for it and all of a sudden there's a knock door very very loud and urgency rental open the learns Esau arm agents outside and pointing their guns to my wife and daughters into an Tokyo in Hong Cups and I had absolutely no idea why okay. So why was he arrested? Like what was going on what the. Us government accused him of sharing a special piece of equipment with researchers in China. But here's the thing he did. Do it prosecutors. Were confused because well it turns out. Superconducting technology is just really complicated. But what about the idea that he was helping? The Chinese developed superconducting technology. Just in general. Well Dr she says sure. He works with scientists in China all the time and sometimes he spent summers over there doing research with them. But as you know Mattie one of the basic pillars of fundamental research is openness nothing. He shared was classified or restricted in any way. Qadam ICK espionage. It's a contradiction me. Everything we are doing is fundamental research. There's nothing to steal can. Just sit there and read your paper and sure enough about six months after this whole thing starts. The charges are dropped against doctor she. The government admits he's done absolutely nothing. Wrong I mean honestly it sounds like he just had collaborators which is like a major thing in science unless there was some weird money. Thing being exchanged or going on this is what scientists do. Yeah I mean. They're technologies that are restricted for example stuff to do with rockets that could be used in missile development say. The government has very strict rules about sharing that kind of information but generally scientists open collaborations. Happened all over the world. The thing is China is getting a lot more scrutiny. These days so fast forward to twenty eighteen attorney general. Jeff sessions is really concerned about the theft of scientific knowledge and intellectual property by the Chinese so the Justice Department launches what it calls its China initiative the goal is to crack down on the transfer of US knowledge to China and in the academic community the focus. False really quickly. I'm one program in particular. It's called the thousand Talents Plan. So our understanding is that originally. The purpose of the thousand talents program was to reverse the brain drain. That's Michael Lower. He's deputy director of extramural research at the National Institutes of health. And he's the main guy at NIH dealing with thousand talents. When he says brain-drain an example of that is like scientists. Go abroad to study and then end up staying in whatever country instead of coming back home. Exactly the Chinese government wanted to bring back outstanding scientists to China so as to develop their science and technology and the way the Chinese government does is by offering money so researchers set up labs in China and they spend at least part of their year over there Doing their work in exchange for grants and expenses paid and the program grew pretty quickly to include non-chinese scientists as well right and I think there are these kinds of programs in other countries to yeah. It's not uncommon. Canada had something called the one hundred fifty research chairs. I mean. That's kind of the less ambitious Canadian equivalent. Chevy Sega but with lower says is the thousand talents program has gone too far in the real problem from his perspective is that in a number of cases researchers are not telling their home universities or the. Us government for that matter about Chinese funding and not disclosing that Chinese funding. That's what's actually against the law. Exactly the types of behaviors that we are seeing are not subtle or minor violations What we're seeing is really quite egregious and that brings us back to Charles Lieber. The Harvard Chemist We were talking about earlier. Who is arrested back in January the complaint alleges Doctor Lieber signed a contract with the Chinese University in Wuhan and was paid to fifty thousand dollars per month plus up to one hundred and fifty eight thousand dollars in living expenses and awarded more than one point five million dollars to set up a research lab at the Chinese school and work there on researching nanotechnology that is a lot of money. Jeff that is like ten post docs full of money. At least I love that. Your brain calculates prices in post is seen but the bottom line is. It is a lot of money in the criminal complaint. Alleges not only did he get all this money. Lieber lied about being part of the program to Harvard to the NIH in the Department of Defense. Which together we're also giving him many millions of dollars in research money. I should say Lieber attorneys declined to comment about this case. They didn't WanNa speak to me but Mike clower from the NIH says there's a larger pattern here other scientists have done the same and it's a real problem. Collaboration does not involve offshore offshore bank accounts. collaboration does involve undisclosed cash payments. It does not involve undisclosed employment agreements or undisclosed contracts. It does not involve double dipping. Where a person is being paid salary to work in China and to work in the United States at the same time several scientists and other institutions have been fired over this he says the NIH is currently investigating around one hundred eighty other scientists. He thinks this is a systemic problem. So if these cases involve lying failing to disclose information which we do know is against the law. Why are scientists doing this? It's a really interesting question and I don't have a great answer as I said. Liebers attorneys have declined to speak to me In other cases other scientists who've been fired don't talk to the press generally now lower says. In some cases the thousand talents contracts scientists sign actually come with a nondisclosure agreements. So they're actually told by the Chinese not to say anything which is illegal but there's also more going on I mean it may be then some cases they fear if they disclose money from the Chinese. They are going to get more scrutiny on their work and then something else to consider is the possibility of just plain old greed the criminal complaint against Charles Lieber alleges and I should say alleged here that he was receiving cash payments from the Chinese. That some of this money was just coming straight up cash. Okay so the sounds problematic for sure but is it espionage. Maybe I have like an outdated old timey spy version of espionage but it doesn't necessarily feel like that to me no I mean. It isn't really espionage. I think it's really important to say that. Lieber isn't technically being accused of espionage. The government this is about the money and I think it's very telling the US government's going after the money rather than transfers of technology like you remember that superconducting case earlier. It's really hard to tell of. Someone's doing something illegal when they're collaborating scientifically and that's also got some people wondering whether these sorts of cases really deserve criminal treatment so frank who is somebody I spoke to. He's a professor at the University of California Hastings College of Law and he tracks these espionage cases and says arresting people for issues around what they disclosed for their grants. It just feels heavy handed to him zone. The past if there was a problem somebody would talk to you. Maybe you would face disciplined from your employer but you wouldn't face being fired and going to prison and having your name dragged through the mud as a spy in fact the same day. Lieber was arrested the Justice Department announced the arrest of two Chinese nationals. They say had lied on visa. Applications and illegally transferred biological samples. These aren't exactly the same kind of case. But you know it's the same general flavor. It sounds like a lot of people who have been accused are Chinese nationals or ethnically Chinese. Does we think that racism plays a role in this well would midst. There are some real espionage cases that involve Chinese people and they have been convicted. But they're sort of larger tone around all this. It sounds very familiar to him. No matter how assimilated. You are no matter how much you think yourself. I'm an American just like any other American winner of Chinese background. There's that risk always that people will look at you and suspect you're actually communist agent now. I should say. Us officials categorically denied. This has anything to do with race. I interviewed Andrew Leveling the federal prosecutor. Who ARRESTED LIEBER? And he said this if it was the French governments that was attempting to steal. Us technology in a massive decadelong campaign. We'd look for French people. But it's not it's the Chinese government and he actually points to the Lieber case as an example of how they're willing to prosecute anyone they think is broken the law by lying but even if the government doesn't think it's racial profiling it's definitely having an effect on the Chinese research. Community your remember. Chichaou shing the researcher who was falsely accused that we talked about well. I asked him. Does he still work with colleagues? In China. The short answer is yes but the more Ah Longer answer. Is that to my research. Now is much much smaller than used to be. And that's because he doesn't want to apply for federal grants anymore. He's afraid he'll do something wrong so every time I do all this conflict of interest floor alright to all these Grant applications and check boxes and also I I I I shake I I. I'm scared that if anything I didn't do exactly accurately I could be in

Acclaimed Harvard Scientist Is Arrested, Accused Of Lying About Ties To China
"On so this Harvard scientist lied right he got caught he was getting paid by the Chinese communist government is doctor Charles Lieber sixty years old you can pay by the chai comes fifty thousand Bucks a month he was the chairman of the department of chemistry and chemical biology at Harvard wow you ready for this Wuhan yes the center of the of the coronavirus Wuhan university of technology paid this guy fifty grand a month and about a hundred fifty a grand a year living expenses and a million and a half dollars to build a research lab in exchange for working on behalf of the university for not less than nine months a year starting in twenty eleven that's what it says he said he was contact contracted with China's thousand talents program fit the federal government says that seeks to reward individuals for stealing proprietary information any did the between twenty twelve and twenty seventeen and he lied about his ties to China to Harvard Harvard asked is I know ties to Diana no no no no no ties so he's getting paid a lot of money by China to basically give them all kinds of information in it and you name it information to then give it to
Harvard professor charged with hiding China ties, payments
"Kelly a Harvard University professor has been charged with lying to federal authorities about his ties to the Chinese government the case against professor Charles Lieber is one of three tying to China that justice department officials announced today in Boston justice correspondent Ryan Lucas is here with more either all right SO three China related cases listed a Harvard professor first what we know about him so Charles lever is the chair of Harvard's chemistry and chemical biology department he's been at Harvard for around thirty years very prominent in his field he leads a research group at the university of focuses on nanotechnology so tiny technology in everything from biology and medicine to energy and computing officials say that since two thousand eight he has received more than fifteen million dollars in research grants from the US government so those would be for the national institutes of health and the defense department those funds require you to disclose any ties particular financial ties to foreign universities and foreign governments and so what's the case against him so the criminal complaint filed in Boston says that lever secretly signed a contract in two thousand eleven with a Chinese University to guide research at that institution he didn't tell Harvard about that he also allegedly signed on to be part of something known as China's thousand talents plan a US officials say that this is a a Chinese government program that is designed to essentially lure American researchers American scientists into sharing their expertise with China the complaint has copies of both of these agreements that lever allegedly entered into with China and he was well compensated by the Chinese for this the complaint says that he was paid up to fifty thousand dollars a month he got some a hundred and fifty thousand dollars per year in addition to that for living expenses more than a million dollars in funding for a lab in China now his current legal predicament though comes from allegedly line about all of this when asked about it by Pentagon investigators and the national institutes of health because remember grants from the Pentagon and N. I. H. require that you disclose collaboration with foreign researchers aren't we mentioned there are two other cases to other cases that the justice department announced both also related to China what details do we know about those so these are from the Boston area as well and they're both against Chinese nationals and one of them if the cases against a Chinese woman who is conducting research at Boston University the allegations against her include that you lied on her visa form a to hide the fact that she is a Chinese military officer the feds reviewed her electronic devices and found that she had done research on US military projects and was compiling information on to US scientists who specialized in robotics and computer science the other case is against a Chinese man who had been doing cancer cell research at a Boston Medical Center he was stopped at Logan airport back in December federal agents found twenty one vials of biological material squirreled away in a sock in his luggage he originally told agents he didn't have anything as bags later admitted that he was trying to take the vials to try not to do his own research wow alright so these three cases is it a coincidence that they were all announced at the same time as their bigger picture here well the bigger picture these cases involve nanotechnology robotics chemistry biomedical research the US attorney for Massachusetts and leveling said that this is not an accident or coincidence this is a small sample of Chinas ongoing campaign to siphon off American technology and know how for Chinese games so American officials are really trying to push back against what they say is the Chinese government's a relentless efforts to steal US intellectual property US research in trade secrets they say China is deliberately targeting high tech fields like the ones we talked about today they say China is using traditional intelligence officers but also businessman researchers and yes academics to try to get their hands on this stuff

Electroneum Is Alive And Well
"Okay? So we sell a couple years ago. Had Successful is CEO in that time when we started saying nobody renew quite how spicer is going to be waiting. Thought it was a very successful Huge community and we've had quite radically changing blockchain blockchain China. Unlike anybody else's don't use work we'd go to brought Janko proof of responsibility that we coined We have NGOs do all validation. Uh so that's interesting we partner with NGOs specifically because we some of the stuff we're doing on the ground in terms of twenty educate people to be able to through cryptocurrency. When they're on banked we enjoy to be perfect honest so it's really not sure or basically electronic? It's all about being a cryptocurrencies easy to use Barbara small five instant payments and Eight makes it easy to send value around the world very very quickly very low price point which gets the UN banked into a situation where they can earn money from Alice. Suppose that that such product really. It's not just about crypto. It's it's very empowering people that don't have it right now don't have the time abilities what you went on the viewers and listeners of watching this. I mean one the things I'm passionate about me and I was looking at a coconut coconut company in in the Philippines and what was happening with people paying the workers cash right. 'cause obviously there so that would have back then the word would go out there. And that would basically spend the money and whatever's left over the kids which would be significantly lower proportion of the actual income was with an bank system. I mean we're talking about bringing people to another level helping education as automated. Yeah yeah he has such wide ranging gene cut. Yeah well I know some people will dismiss cryptocurrency. But now you don't understand the doors unlock Ryan and once you get down that rabbit hole unexplained that they were really big use cryptocurrency from all perspective. What we said where is it really real pressing need and so we saw the unbagged has being that pressing need? I think that's been confirmed. Pretty much by FACEBOOK's Lieber project that's where we're going to talk and it's a massive massive mark one point seven billion people in the world but from our perspective but we don't really incentivize to learn any new scales if you've got nothing that you can use those skills to gain any extra money so it's a bit like when you're listening about calculus or whatever am I ever gonNA use your way. They'd be virtually anything if they're going to be subsistence bomb so actually if they can learn new skills fairly simple carry out just on their smartphone. Just start with a few quid building up enough money to perhaps boy a laptop that totally changes and any demographic so any countries that you sort of targeting the moment all the others we wrote down so so we go we go its data. You can buy directly from the electronic map a real time so you can buy a Duller top two dollars of your your your data directly an ATM. So we've voted out in South Africa Rodeo. In Brazil we got about ninety five percent coverage of the population in Brazil. So that's going really well. Wow we've goal will Turkey. We rolled out. And we've got loads of other countries that were just trying to get everything signed now and getting road out Lots of lots of places in Southeast Asia really interesting too often from the freelance economy Huge huge uses of that you mentioned the Philippines target for so in Brazil. Let's talk look through five percent coverage of ability to coach because I got a hundred million people and they say well I wouldn't say that I know electronially. Yeah we've got tens of thousands of new users a week coming in from From Brazil so we give away a little bit of electron you sort of reward for forgetting forget any voting the project. It's kind of all cost requisition for they come on a little bit like turn him off for maybe a month they could use a top at that point they realized actually this this has real value. Now that's pretty much the stage route but with furiously getting this piece of software finished Collini tasks which is the which is all platform for enabling enabling to sell a digital skill and we have another not for profit organization could task school. which is out there to to teach people at no cost some digital skills that they could selling incident and so what's revenue? How does it work what we're doing is we're pretty much in that twitter facebook page westbound just uses uses uses? Use It we. There are lots of different places we could add revenue stream in the future. And William tend to and we're not trying to do it so we've got a few BITs nonprofit. Yeah but that's so that we can work with NGOs without any hindrance the but the but they actually electric company can make money through Through the transport costs virtually free to send it around the world but we could very easily introduced a small fake. So that's that's one thing we could use and the second thing we could use these. The costs on the platform any tells so at the moment we are delivering one hundred percent of the value that straight through to the user so the person who does the job gets hundred percent most of the platforms out there around twenty percent plus so be very easy for us ten fifteen percent in the future and still be under the market so anytime has called right. Yeah yeah now. That's been ongoing. He's talked so you give them updates on that. Yeah sure sure so originally it was GONNA be Gig. GIG doesn't translate very well so we were out South East Asia. Africa GIG didn't work very well in terms of translation. Nice name. I liked it but we went off. More research ended up changing across to any tasks that is going to beat if not this month but so say certainly in Q.. Four twenty nine probably November. We'll get it into the first few hundred users on board at that stage and it's similar to sort of people our five or that type of freelancer platform. The enables people to list skill complete. And we've got some training courses this show people that actually there are quite a few skills you can do with fund don't you. You don't need to have a laptop you. Could you imagine access to meet you in from around the world and what we've done is really cool as well as we sell the company structure in a way that there's a ring fence company that doesn't do do we crypto and that enables its credit cards so the uses blanks digital agencies around. They can still buy your credit card could any other platform and then we go up a system where it goes off to a desk gets converted all kind of on the fly from pools a bit like transfer y so they were sitting there of posting of cash and he gets switch and route and then the person gets that. AT&T limits which they can cashier for various things at the other end interesting so I mean and the markets went up. A little tokens went a little treasury. Management didn't go on You guys still sitting pretty casualties. We've got We've now got maybe two and a half million euros in cash But we've got twenty five million dollars. Plus in in Treasury Rian Krypton so big more than doubled since the CEO and we kept it in exactly what we did and what we've we've raised in. bitcoin in a theory theory probably behalf of what it was but but largely we we might even have thirty million Treasury The account -posedly runs the scripture periodically. But it's Yeah we we didn't do anything on. Some people went off and did some fairly arcane fun of investments and try to make money out of it. We just thought you know what we raised in these things. We have a fight in cryptocurrency Stephen. bitcoin still ridiculously strong projects. Made sense to keep it in. Yeah look that make sense as well. Good he's the but some Some money leftover because we look we. We saw the music off court heavily. Has that affected the progress of electronic Moving the full of the actual total value having decrease so much as many of the other top. Yeah I think sentiment has been difficult. I think that's that's been the hardest thing from my point of view. I would like to have seen its value. Be At least where it was when people perched in the first ingest tips. So I'm not crazy crazy one point And and who knows what. We were very difficult because I thought lawyers are lawyers talk about price in any way but We we haven't really started spending those funds on promoting yet because we thought there's no point if we just started promoting two years ago. which is one of these guys? Have done tokens go promoting their money promoting to the cryptocurrency world specifically because they just want people to buy more of it but making the project project was nothing so we got all of our technology stack in place and we'll very very near to the completion. At which point advertising those projects out to people. We've got some. We've spoken number times about really big deals when we've got some really big deals but best so difficult to pull together but one of those will drop especially once we get one of the bigger NGOs come out to say.

Zuckerberg gets lit up over Facebook and Libra
"Today on the daily charge twitter down in the dumps reporting revenue stall in the third quarter and sucks out of luck facebook founder and world renowned punching bag go back to Kevin you know attention to them and I think especially because facebook being facebook there's so M- so many more is on this there's a lot of concern about getting this right to make sure people don't certainty of libra actually coming out as far less whether that is or isn't going to happen it's hard to say it's expected to come out sometime in the first half of next year think initially as maybe a year ago two years ago there would be these ISOS that would just come out with very little regulatory scrutiny very little automatically unscathed at all like the first time around but at the same time I mean he just got walloped over was there money to make sure that this doesn't destabilize global monetary policy so I would say especially after the hearing yesterday the there's still a little bit of time to figure that out anyway next more people are on twitter but the social network badly missed Wall Street's revenue expectation fix our grilling on Capitol Hill yesterday with lawmakers taking the billionaire CEO to task for a slew of issues including data breaches misleading by just going after him not only over libra but on a variety of different topics so he got hit from all sides I think ultimately I watched the entire six hours thing there isn't anything really weighing over him specific to the hearing I think if anything it really does suggest like for antitrust concerns or some other regular gle ads and its new libra crypto currency okay so this was a lot to get through guys by ultimately what were your impressions soon they seemed much better prepared questions seem to be far more sophisticated but at the same time I would give credit for not appearing overly defense live every single time he was interrupted he just kind of let them take their time back and just lay into him so again it was a hearing it's not like this was a criminal case or any did you think Zack did okay did he mostly survive he'd he took a beating definitely took a beating Tori issues at least the house is taking a posture that like hey we're not going to be very friendly to you we're gonNA take a much more aggressive approach well you've been covering cryptocurrency for a while the most viral moment was like the him responding to Orrin Hatch with senator we run ads in so I think which were so pulled out she's a lot of negative publicity do you think this survives or do you think facebook pulls out in sort of like let's go off on its own that's a great question ends as it seems advertisers are avoiding the site every single time we bring up twitter on this show I feel like it's bad news and that's kind of a bad story for facebook twitter pulled at the congressman right for not knowing their stuff and so this time around they they boned up on it they they did their homework and maxine waters it has definitely talked a lot about trying to demystify twitter and a lot of ways like when you're adding people at the very beginning of tweet you have to put a period at the beginning these are really all sorts of things so whether this is going to result in anything the other question now is it just a hearing or is it going to sort of action I remember the last time we'll curious like to get your take on this like libra is lieber dead or is it is it still going to be a thing because a lot of major supporters like visa MasterCard pay pal for the daily charge.

"Is true across the last one hundred years of history and I thought someone will build the defining media company around on demand digital audio someone's going to do that and I think it would be really fun and I was I told my friend Graham who had been a mentor to me back in my radio career and he said Oh you should meet this other Guy Alex would you think about him when when he first met did you think this is it this is like a slam dunk I'm in was it not not quite that clear I mean this is the thing of like I feel like I already knew him because I had listened to his stories this is the thing about audio like when you and I'm sure you you've experienced this guy which is when you meet people they've they walk up to you like they're your friend and everything he was saying about like I'm excited about audio and I think it's underestimated and I WANNA do a business around that I was basically I just sat there in shook my head and said yes I think this is how the business could work and I think it could be really big and that sounds exciting and obviously let me know how I can help yeah it's a funny moment because really what I was looking for a CO founder but I didn't know founder yet and so there's a lot of some sort of weird dating thing that has to happen and as we started to talk more about like what would be helpful I think doc you suggested like why don't we business plan right I think I just started working on it basically like nights and weekends and sending you things and what kinds of as we create which was along the lines of what you're doing but also how they would get distributed who the partners would be and I was doing that not because I was like trying out to be your co founder that's the crazy thing and I was doing a lot of working so much work but I was the thing this is for me it was a it was fun and I would wake up in the morning just excited to do yeah I would get up in the morning and there early in the morning and there would be like multi-page Business Plan that Matt had somehow produced like and I was like Oh my God this is you know amazing and making a case that investors could actually get behind but did you Alex did you pretty much from the beginning when when started to Kinda help you out and just give you free advice do you think okay I think this is the guy or or you not quite there yet I wasn't quite there yet because I think we we didn't know each other at all yeah we had met like three times did we only meet three times when we know I mean by the time we signed we'd met more than three times by the time we actually signed an agreement but like I think around the Business Plan era right right we came over Matt we had an initial meeting sort of at my house where brought over some beers we drink beers and talked about like what was happening just a couple of startup Brazil Carr's hatching I did a bunch of I did some reference checking so I started calling around to people who had worked with Alex tint and it always still shocks me that you didn't do that for me at the time you didn't have a clue now you would never or someone without the blind referenced I I called a couple of people who work with them and and they're pretty consistent which is he's a brilliant brilliant editor incredibly supportive and then I had lunch with Adam Davidson your partner Adam is very direct person and here's also like Yeah Alex Oh like tenacious and you know doesn't back down and his really stubborn at actually all that turned out to be true like the four words to describe Alex are those brilliant storyteller stubborn control freak and I was like that's a that's those are some of the qualities you want to have installed the stage and what about you Alex Matt you didn't know him at all you just knew he had some experience that was in public radio and he had a business degree I had concerns about how we didn't know each other and I was I was worried about that and we're pretty different people I'm trying to think of like what are first meter conflict though oh I remember very clearly 'cause I 'cause I think this is before we agreed to owner this is going to sound very diabolical but I was like we have to have a fight so that we see how each other are going to interesting conduct ourselves in a situation with conflict and I kind of forced it yeah it was like nine pm we'd we'd both put our kids to bed and I came over your apartment and I think it was about it was our eternal fight which was you're saying this is we're just gonNa make up on podcasts like that's what we're GonNa do and I was saying first of all we're GONNA make more than a couple of podcast we're going to build a company and an organization in a culture and it's going to end up being really big and it's going to be whe more work than we're doing now and it's going to be incredibly hard and I think are underestimating that because for you you'd think you're just going to be able to do the same thing you did at planet money but do it a couple more times at actually the thing we're doing completely different so when you guys finally did decide to partner had come about well Alex did it as pardon startup so the final to discuss which we had put on the agenda for last time where we relationship going yeah checking in on it looking back I think you only felt comfortable having that conversation because you had the microphone and then that began a go she basically about what the partnership was going to be and I think I I think Alex originally you offered like ten to fifteen percent ownership right now I think I said in the ranger into ten I'm key to this success of the company and I wanNA feel I want to feel that that is reflected in cap table I guess there's a subtext to the I am key to the success of this company which is you are not at you meaning me and Matt was you were offended by this justifiably I would say I can't imagine doing this for the numbers that you're talking about I just can't imagine doing it because if it's ninety ten I'm like this and now it's a job and in a job I'm not gonNa like and then you and you're the boss I'm just not interested in and I don't think that will make the company succeed you guys tend to play out this negotiation in the podcast eventually met you come back you say let's split it then you say okay about fifty three forty seven Alex goes back you talk to your wife your wife is saying no it's too high finally agree on a sixty forty split this all out there for everyone to hear this is public all public and that was great though everybody was happy with that I was were you Yeah I was I was I was excited to just get started building the company and I felt that it was a being to get through that negotiation and get an agreement was it solidified our relationship and Alex that that entire time you were going back and forth with Matt like how confident were you about this idea that that this this is this company was even going to work you know what I think unlevel I knew it would work. I'm not a big risk taker not a serial entrepreneur it just felt so clear to me but of course I didn't know it was going to work right so of course you actually have anxieties and eventually I admitted to myself the possibility that like Oh this could not work out but it was by that point we were look for yours into it and it was definitely GonNa work out like it was already growing it was like it's funny and you know I looked when we eventually sold the company if I peel or posting a selection of all these very very first pictures of the very very first office the very very first months of that first office and the time I've been so.

Hey welcome back to how I built this I'm Gyros so it's two thousand fourteen and Alex Bloomberg is going to walk away not from one but from to plum jobs in public radio is GonNa do this to start a podcast company the something that at this point was not entirely proven concept so he decides to lay out his case on a podcast which calls startup here's a clip of it I love podcasts seemed like someone should come up with money to invest in making new shows as and come up with a theory about how could be profitable I kept waiting for someone to do that and then came this thought thought that's gotten a lot of people a lot of trouble the thought well I could do did you think you're GonNa do this by yourself was it was it the plan the beginning yes thought that was what I was going to do basically I was on my own millions of people listen to this American life and planet money at NPR and I didn't have any personal brand and so my big fear was like I figured I'd be able to like get a podcast together I just didn't know how anybody was gonNA know about US yeah so I had to do something that was going to attract attention to what we're doing and I figured like okay a guy recording self trying to start a company that'll be that'll be good it was like a marketing ploy doing an audio diary of like making this company are you meeting someone with money this is my wife Nazanin early one morning a couple months ago stopping me as I was on my way out the door to do something I'd never done before meet a guy who works at a venture capital firm try to get Give me money did did you in your mind a sense of how much time you had before you could no longer just survive off Nazanin 's income no I didn't by that point she was working at MSNBC Societa she was making a lot more than you make in public radio but it wasn't law young like we didn't have a ton of savings and I didn't drop my head a couple maybe like I don't know three or four months it's five months that was it Max and and I mean you were like in your apartment you had two kids at this point right now and you just without talking into your microphone yeah started anything I was doing I would mike myself doing it any meetings had set up I would tell the people ahead of time and Sunni Pakistan coming in like funny thing also making a podcast about it ha- come out with microphone and for the most part they were into like it was like you know it got me in the door and the certain way it was like it was unusual yeah you know if you're a VC you've seen seventy five gasoline people pitch you a different kind of like food delivery APP or something you know but you probably haven't seen people come with a full head Garin booth Mike recording it so if nothing else it was a novel all right so you leave planet money in March two thousand fourteen and would you go like just have meetings with with people at money would you just try to set up meetings after meeting yeah I would set up after meeting would reach out to everybody that I knew had been involved and you just meet somebody in the introduce somebody else may introduce you to somebody else and it's all like you know but ultimately became very clear like nobody was going to invest I could only tell half the story I can only tell the story of like here's the kind of things that I've made and here's and I'm GonNa just keep doing that and that wasn't that wasn't a business that wasn't a business and your pitch was I wanna make like Hbo of Audio Yeah I WanNa make really high quality who's GonNa be ad-supported maybe we'll sell style custer here everyone yeah no I feel like I would I would go out and it'd be pumped up and it'd be practicing over my pitch and I'd go out and do it and fly out somewhere and then I was one of like I don't know three four meetings that day and I was just one idea out of a million ideas and other people were pitching ideas that had proprietary software or you know like scientific breakthrough news and they'd been like part of a lab at Stanford and I was pitching podcast and company and I hadn't worked in a for profit companies since I was a bag here at a grocery store school and high school and I remember calling my wife I think we actually recorded these conversations when I called my wife after one of these things I think it was actually ended up being in a startup episode oh I'm feeling I'm feeling the same way I felt the last was out here I'm sitting there talking to the due to this guy and I'm describing something that feels like the biggest thing I've ever done like a escape L. beyond my wildest imaginings two minute I can't even tell if I could pull off and is totally not big enough team smart even when I was at the depths of depression and feeling small and stupid like what the hell have I done the fact that I was able to talk about it on tape I knew it was good tape so the more I failed is a wannabe entrepreneur the Mara was succeeding as a as a radio documentary producer and so there was something weirdly comfortable at that like at least all this work for nothing at least I'll have some document I mean startup really was fascinating to listen to this these like now iconic moments like a lot of startup fans will remember that moment when you're trying to pitch Gimblett to the investor Chris Sokha making a network of digital podcasts that we will monitor that that will that will there's GonNa meet sorry so what's it GonNa take it to do it so it'll take a million and a half dollars I think and she got the yeah they'll take a million and it was like that meeting that really should me how naive I was all the questions he asked I had no idea how to answer what's what's what's the exit with the what does that even mean it was like you know I give you money you build the company that having a get my money back when's your exit I know like what percentage to give them how did you even know how to accept the terms on the term sheet did you were you consulting with a lawyer did you just because those things are complicated but nobody was offering me money until I literally nobody I don't think anybody offered money until Madison teamed up I think when I was here by myself I didn't even get to that point so you come to this conclusion that you need a partner probably somebody with some experience business or maybe at least an MBA hey when did you meet when did you meet Matt I met Matt over the summer of twenty fourteen I believe and we were introduced by mutual friend and public radio and the story that I heard was that sort of like there's another guy running it all around town with sort of the same story talking about like how there's a business to be built in audio and he was sort of often his world doing the same thing during and so we finally met what Matt when you met Alex what what were you doing in the summer of twenty fourteen I had done my a and then and then become a management consultant at Boston Consulting Group which meant that I would go and work inside of large companies and help them develop growth strategies or solve problems or things like that but then I began to think about digital audio and I was listening to a lot of cast the time I thought every time a new medium comes about new media companies get built Oh and like why not me and I told a lot of people about this not that I was starting a company because Alex was much further advanced than I was but just like that would be exciting I think.

Gimlet Media: Alex Blumberg and Matt Lieber
"Guy Roz and on the show today you public radio producers turn podcasts into Prophet and the media company called Gimblett that sold for more than two hundred million dollars so somebody you may know that for most of my early career I was a news person I covered a bunch of wars that was posted overseas it was a host on NPR's evening news show but then in two thousand twelve I left I left to essentially relaunch a podcast it was called the radio hour and I still hosted in back then that decision believe it or not was like going into the Wilderness of journalism several of my colleagues you're going to do a lot podcast and to be honest I was a little embarrassed myself I was leaving the prestigious world of news the exile of podcasts but of course what eventually happened was precisely the opposite of exile podcasts exploded today's podcast are a half a billion dollar industry and what was once considered an afterthought even a place like NPR is now one of its most important sources of revenue now back in two thousand fourteen what my colleagues was watching this explosion really closely his name is Alex Blumberg Alex is someone I've admired for a long long time he was a producer on this American life and then he went on to co create one of my favorite shows planet money and Alex started to dream of an idea to build a production company like HBO except for Audio podcasts but even then the thought of making money of podcasts was still a fairly new proposition besides like a lot of mature and stable organizations NPR can be slow to innovate Alex realized he couldn't launch this idea inside the company so he laughed which was a huge gamble lots of people in public radio thought he was nuts he also knew nothing about how to run a business now as many of you may know Alex documented this journey on a podcast called startup in that show he describe the emotional ups and downs of starting the business and how he eventually came to meet his co founder Matt Lieber they decided to call their company Gimblett and not to produce a bunch of podcasts including reply all and homecoming and then in two thousand nine hundred Nineteen Matt and Alex sold the company they founded spotify for around two hundred million dollars which I think is fair to say is not a sum of money you often hear connected to public radio folks unless they are major donors anyway we'll hear from Lieber a bit later in the show but I assume Alex who grew up in Cincinnati his dad was in advertising and mom ran a public assistance program in the city and even though it may not seem obvious given what they did Alec says both of them were actually really entrepreneur Royal Oh yeah they were entrepreneurial and we never use that word yeah I didn't learn that word at home I probably learned that we're in college my mom was a social worker and she ran a public employee assistance program that I never heard her talk about it that way and then my father he was advertising my dad was always in advertising and he you know he was a copywriter and then worked with different people different agencies and then eventually started his own retiring agency and then that agency and then another one that became Wolf Bloomberg Crotty so he was the Bloomberg and the Wolf Bloomberg Cody and I grew pretty big group like at a certain point there were like seventy eighty people big and he never talked about it as like this is my business citing like we're building this business or anything like that if anything he was I about why I don't think he valued it at all like I think all he wanted to do was be a poet really or like an academic or a great thinker but he had this successful business that seemed to kind of grow I guess just grow on its own or or grow organically I know I mean I remember asking him about this at one point because it was like later later later in the journey when we when matinee started Gimblett and we were like growing this company and it was like all I could think about and it was assuming every single sort of thought in my mind and when Tom later I asked him about that was like how did you feel about it when you're starting I never heard Stories from me about it and I think what he told me it was like he was like I just never felt like I never felt like those people the people I worked with you did you sense or notice a change in your family's lifestyle you know having gone from Your Dad working for a company your mom doing social work to him running this pretty successful at it agency Oh yeah there is there is a there was a moment where my dad's company was doing very well and business was booming and the one of the ants was pressuring gamble and all the sudden had money and it was fortunately right around the time that I was going to college so they were able to pay for me and my sister in college you went to College Oberlin and you studied political science government did you did you sense of what you wanted to do when you were in college think I WANNA get into public service like my mom I wanna do some kind of social worker was that Japan or did you think one again to journalism or did you not really no and I think I had a sense of like wanting to do something good in the world like I remember I studied Russian because back when I was in college Russia's Evil Empire ah communism right and I had this very sort of political feeling about like you know they're they're people just like you and me Mr Reagan and I'm going to learn their language and prove it to you and I think one of the things I was a big consumer of narrative nonfiction from an early age you know we had magazines lying around the house like we had the New Yorker and Harper's that was kind of household and like I pick them up early and really loved them and then as I got older I loved them more than yeah but I never I never saw myself off has doing that that felt like the people who did that the people who did journalism those are the kids who are like sort of on the school paper out had majored in journalism and had like gotten internships when they're in college and you weren't doing any of that I wasn't doing it I was like tested well I took AP classes yeah but I was not a mode it student I was very comfortable with a high so you graduate am I guess you you go back to Cincinnati well no I went to Russia in a year in Russia then spent a summer in Cincinnati and then moved Chicago and that's where I sort of picked up my post collegiate life was an wasn't cog on an in Chicago you're actually a teacher right I was yeah I taught school at a private school for for four years I taught science but it wasn't GonNa be the thing you were going to do but it wasn't the thing I was going to do no I didn't I didn't feel like it was nothing at like at a certain point sort of in in my second or third year it was like I don't think this is really what I wanna do but like honestly guy I think really what happened was my girlfriend broke up with me in Chicago in Chicago we'd been dating for many years and we're lovin it just it really shook me and when she you gotta do and she was like I'm going to move to New York and I'm going to film school and I was like wait that's not fair we weren't supposed to be actually pursuing our dreams you're going to actually pursue your dream and then I was like Oh my God and now you're GonNa go to film school and then you're going to become a famous director and then your name is going to be the marquee I'm going to be supervising recess and it shook me and it shook me into

But show what what compelled you to write the book. You know? I get asked this a lot. And every time I get asked it. I give a different answer. I actually think that's much more refreshing. You might see it from a different perspective depending on the day. Right. I absolutely I wrote it initially thinking that there was going to be some sort of catharsis and getting the story down. And there would be, you know, an emotional healing go along with my with my physical recovery because I was still carrying a lot of this stuff around with me. I started writing I got hurt in September two thousand ten and I sat down to start writing the book at the end of twenty thirteen and in between had been gathering notes. And you know, I take notes his I had gotten hurt. I kept a journal and was just trying to figure out what kind of what kind of experience it would be to write a book. I'd never written one. I had no idea how to do it. So I just started pounding health thinking that this is going to be good for me. I I went away to a cabin in east of Pittsburgh, this remote dilapidated shack. Back and I spent four months writing the first draft of it just being by myself. And I thought okay, this is this is going to be good for me. Injuries.

There's there's there's a good chance that you could be a head case from that injury. And some people would would rightly state that I was already a head case before I got shot in the head. And this just made it that much worse. So I thought that going in there that like I said, there'd be some sort of healing process in writing it. It wasn't. They wasn't. And it was disappointing in that sense. And I, but I did realize that there are just certain things you have to deal with and you have to incorporate them into who you are and you have to manage them and control them, and sometimes they get out of control, but you have to rein yourself back in.

"And welcome back to coast to coast Stanley the genius behind marvel comics passed away this month. And I was ninety five years old November of this year. Ninety five years old back in two thousand seven Ian, pundit had a chance to talk with him Stanley of marvel comics, it's a pleasure to talk to you. Hey, it's a pleasure to be talked to. But I'm sorry. I missed the show about the guy with the horse. You would allow man I will say that back to follow. We've never met that you've been a friend of mine for years. And I know that you hear that from so many fans out there. There are many more famous hosts who could be interviewing you tonight, but no buddy with a greater appreciation for your work hard. And I have loved reading about you over the years. I was telling what are your people who had called earlier in the week. And I just said, you know, I've I've just always been more fascinated with you almost more than your creations. And I so I've read stuff about you over the years. I'd love to put it to the test. You got a second cure. All right, stand Lieber. Is that correct, right? You're Bradley leaving Stanley Martin Lieber. Now you wanted to save using Lieber for the day in which you might write something that was of greater import than comic book. Did you ever? On the day that I started writing comics. Nobody had any use for them. Nobody had any respect for them. And I hated using my real name. So so you kept holding under thinking one of these days, I'm going to use it, and and Stanley, of course, kind of grew from that. And you became the the franchise and a lot of ways for marvel comics, it's probably appropriate for me to mention some of the most famous, although we all know Spiderman and the x men fantastic four daredevil, you were involved with of course, you're you know, I was one of those one of my favorites. And I even like the movie daredevil not everybody did. But I was really hoping for daredevil too. I thought it was great. There. Okay. And and and who else should we mention of the ones crowds daredevil range iron, man. Thor Nick fury agent of shield the silver surfer, and we can go on and on and silver servers another one too. There's so many of these which I think hulk was I enjoyed the whole movie, but not all of the not all of the comic books have translated as well to the big screen as as some of the headed. Everybody knows how successful the Spiderman series has been what's the secret from a great comic book becoming a great movie you've been involved with both. Well, I think you have to absolutely capture the flavor of the comic book, and it's not just comic books when they make a movie of a novel or of a stage play or anything the most important thing is to figure out what made the original source so popular what was. Was it that made that something that the fans latched onto and not lose that quality? Sometimes you make a movie out of a book. But you you don't include the one element that made the book successful. And it isn't easy always to tell what that element is. That's the tough part. What what have been the most successful translations of your marvel comic series into film? Obviously, I think Spiderman and and the x men are the two most successful successful to is artistic project not just as a financial one. I mean are there other ones that didn't do as well at the box office? But you thought it did capture the spirit of the original comic book. Well, I thought the daredevils carry the spirit egg captured the spirit I did the only thing about the hulk personally, I thought there was a little too much concentration on that business with his father. And I felt it should have been a little bit lighter than that. Right. Nice artwork though, I've always loved the art direction on the hulk. Apart was really cool. I really liked how they did that did you know that the hulk was originally gray the first in the in the origin story years ago. I did not know that why why was he gray? Well, you know, I learned that fans for some reason I've never figured out fans up superheroes. They love Tosh tombs. If when I did the fantastic four in the first issue, I didn't give him costumes, and we started getting fan mail and fan mail read. We love the book. It's great. We can't wait the next issue. But if you don't give them costumes, we'll never buy another copy. So with the hulk here, I was going to do a story about a monster. And I couldn't think of any reason why monster would buy a costume for join different colors in. That's the next best thing. And I thought gray would be kinda spooky and scary. But what happened was the printer couldn't print it? Well in some pages, he looked like he was dark gray. In some pages. It was light grey in some pages was almost black. So being a comic book editor you're a little bit. Like God, you can change anything. So I said and the next she won't give them a different color, and I looked around. And.

Pleased to be joined by Ben lever sidelight atlas for KFA an and the Vikings radio network. Ben, thanks for taking the time beyond the stats. How would you sum up? Kirk cousins, starting debut for Minnesota. Pretty damn good. I gotta say it was. It was pretty darn good. You know he's showed a lot of grit. I think that was the one thing that that was surprised to see a little bit. You know, he's so softspoken and any such a great interview in such a normal guy that we don't often see to sorta the dog mentality that has them. You know, it was. It was evident the last drive of Aikins needed to pick up a first down and he scrambled around and had the die for the for the first down Mark and took a shot from the lies alita linebacker for the forty Niners right in the back and he was short. So you didn't pick it up, but it was this the idea that he was gonna put himself at risk in that moment. One's gonna take a shot. I thought that really tapped off just a tremendous. I start. He was accurate to shoot some arm strength with some balls over the middle, and then a touchdown that digs and both to Cal Rudolph, but right, right on the money and some traffic to. So I thought he had a great first game just of showing. A all the nuances to chatting with Ben Lieber sideline Ottawa's k. f. a. n. and the Minnesota Vikings radio network, you reference some of the weapons that cousins has utilize. If you to rent cow Rudolph as a playmaking tight end, where would you rank the Vikings receiving corps among the best in all of football. What have to put it right up there with the top. I mean, I know things can always change and then guys doing a little bit of slumps and sometimes it depends on who you're playing it far as defense. But when you look at it on paper, you know, with digs and SeaLand who feeling, you know quietly with over one hundred yards today, you know Steph on Dave. I think it's a little bit attention now because of the contract, and you know, getting little flash year on social media and your comes out and scored the first touchdown the season. But you know Adam Thiel and don't forget you the thousand yard receiver last year. And you know it was kinda quieter during the preseason comes out and has over a hundred yards today. And then Kyle Rudolph. You didn't get a lot of targets during the course of the game, but they get the touchdown. You throw in, you know, thousand cook out of the backfield David Morgan at times as sort of an outlet tight end, you know, you factor all that in there. They have to be, you know, one of the top still position teams in the in the National Football League, then we saw the return of dalvin cook. He did lose a fumble, but if he can stay healthy and build. Upon what he did a year ago. What is the running back in a mean to this offense? He's huge. We talked to them after the game or just about the fumble and and you know, he's like, I'm not gonna change the way I run. I run hard and that particular play. You've broken number of tackles. It was one of the better rooms that we've seen by running back and the last few years. And unfortunately, you know, he just didn't secure right away and the defender did exactly what the defenders coach to do. Come up from behind the kinda punch the ball from behind. And so it was a good defensive play. And I, you know, I still have to applaud the effort in a number of those tough runs in where he just he just sorta slithers through the line. There doesn't seem to be any sort of polar opening. Then he'll bounce off a tackler and you know, they'll pick up four or five yards on what looked like a your yard game. So he's he's super important to this this offense. Just not the way he runs the ball, but the fact that he can be three down guy. They started off the game by doing swing, ask them just..

"Lieber scene is a former show runner for the office he actually had a supporting role on the show and for this film it's kind of taking from personal experience that he had a physical back neck elements that actually turned out to be as a result of stress and like built up like anger and stress that he never got out it was not actually actually physical component that they could find and so for this film it's interesting that he was directing a episode of the mindy project where he started talking about the duplex brothers and he said the following i had my script that i wanted to make and then i met the duplex brothers and had a long conversation with mark about their model i had a very traditional way of thinking and i didn't really know how it all worked i thought i would have to go with stars for financing to open up a whole world of different levels mark laid it out like this this is what my two hundred thousand dollar movie looks like and this is what my six hundred thousand dollar version looks like and this is what the three million or four million dollar version looks like in order to make the three or four million dollar movie you need a star who can open a movie you might get thirty days to shoot it which is great but you have the same problems everybody else does when looking for stars this is actually just a part of a larger quote but what i liked about this is that obviously that is still a ton of money so we're not expecting to have hundreds of thousands of dollars but i do think going through different versions of your script face on different budgets that may be available to you is is pretty interesting so maybe that'll change you know he talks about well maybe if i would have done this all in one location it would've been easier maybe if we had shot handheld we could change things a lot he didn't really have playback onset so we had to rely more on the dp so it's just interesting budgeting different ways and senior script with different budgets in if that would change things so that was kind of interesting.
