"Why it's happening in this way, but it's irritating except that there's nothing I can do people who are going to be wrong or it's going to be wrong, but when people are like, oh, you just want the spotlight or oh, you just want attention. It's like I've turned down so many more things and I have said yes to. This is a spotlight that I did not want. You know, I have done the best I could with something that was very negative and I've done the best I could to make it into something positive, not just for myself, but ideally for others you may have gone through the same thing or to prevent others from going through the same thing. But you think you're completely right. My very specific clear objective as to why I'm still talking today does it really is about the spotlight that I didn't want and I thought very hard about whether or not to just sort of like lie low, not comment to the Netflix thing came out and just not say anything at all. But I recognize the value of attention and I recognize the fact that whether or not I choose to engage with it, there would be this attention coming my way and it felt like there are so many really important causes in the world that need attention. There are so many important issues, even relating to the specifically that can't get people to pay attention to them. So I really wanted to yield the time towards asking questions and then ideally finding people like you know, finding a way to sort of redirect the spotlight towards activation partners who can speak to these issues and the thoughtful way and make people think a little harder or differently about something that on the surface just seems so sort of frivolous. Our attention has value and it's also we only have so much of it. And so when lies and outrageousness are amplified to get our attention, what's not getting our attention? Are just going overlooked because of exactly. And that's I think that's so right. Do I watch bad TV, of course I do? Do I eat junk food? Of course I do. It's not to say don't do it. It's just to be mindful that if that's all you do, that really will inform your life. When you are paying attention to these things that are designed to suck up your attention, that are designed to make you want more of them. They're addicting. You are not paying attention to something else. You are not necessarily having the autonomy, you may think you have over the direction of your purpose. I definitely know what you mean.

"We're here live from the Los Angeles valley. We gotta do a one officer dead and the second officer wounded. This case presented a lot of challenges from the start. From shondaland audio in partnership with iHeartRadio. I'm author and journalist Kate bell, and this is hashtag matter. Listen to hashtag matter on the iHeartRadio app, Apple podcast, or wherever you get your podcasts. I was just texting my best Friends also called mini and it's really weird. We got into a mistaken identity. We're both pretty hardcore surfers and this kind of walk in Yahoo. The way of her kid and was yelling at her kid and she got into this massive fight with him. Anyway, it got back to everybody that it was mini, and I took the heat I was getting the text messages late in the night. You got a dial back the aggro, like it's not cool in the water with the kids, and I was like, excuse me. You're a good friend, Minnie Driver. That's a good friend thing to do. It's really fun. Are you the famous mini too? Like, I mean, that sounds like a gauche question, but like if you're the famous many of the two minis, you're always gonna take the heat that can't be good. By the way, it is, it's true, it's like my dad said he'd never get on a plane with a celebrity because if the plane went down, he refused to be and others. Yep, fuck that. I always think that when I see somebody more famous than me on a plane, I'm like, damn, if we go down, no one's gonna remember me. Hello, I'm Minnie Driver. Welcome to many questions, season two. I've always loved priests, questionnaire. It was originally a 19th century parlor game where players would ask each other 35 questions aimed at revealing the other player's true nature. It's just the scientific method really in asking different people the same set of questions. You can make observations about which truths appear to be universal. I love this discipline, and it made me wonder, what if these questions were just the jumping off point? What greater depths would be revealed if I asked these questions as conversation starters with thought leaders and trailblazers across all these different disciplines. So I adapted Proust questionnaire and I wrote my own 7 questions that I personally think are pertinent to a person's story. They are. When and where were you happiest? What is the quality you like least about yourself? What relationship real or fictionalised defines love for you? What question would you most like answered? What person place or experience has shaped you the most? What would be your last meal? And can you tell me something in your life that's grown out of a personal disaster? And I've gathered a group of really remarkable people, ones that I am honored and humbled to have had the chance to engage with. You may not hear their answers to all 7 of these questions. We've whittled it down to which questions felt closest to their experience or the most surprising or created the most fertile ground to connect. My guest today on many questions is sports analyst and television host, Katie Nolan. What's interesting.

"This project, did you find that people were or news outlets were excited to work with you? Or was it were they more kind of like, oh, I don't know if we can publish this. This is not what we want to publish. What was the vibe like around outlets reporting, the things that you were sourcing from being embedded with these communities? I heard from a lot of editors. This is extremely cool. Also, highly unethical, so come back when you're done. People did not want to work with me individual journalists were okay with it. I watched Zach get kicked out of an event with gorka and Tyson's corner. So like I would message people who were out of events that I was odd. And obviously I grew up here, so I do have friends who are journalists. But by and large, everybody was like, this is very neat. But we literally can not pay you to write about it unless you're going to write about your real name attached. And it's like, well, guess what? The whole time is undercover. I went by Frank on Twitter with a picture of a turtles, so people assumed I was a man. Which was wonderful. But yeah, you know, people didn't want to mess with it. And I tried to rationalize, I was like, oh yeah, it's unethical because you can't wear a mask, like the things I went to, you are a mask or a journalist you're out. But that's not really what it was. Line to a Nazi is unethical, which is wild to me. More after a quick break.

"Smile actually on the side of the road. So I think that component is missing. How these extremist actions affect people before it becomes violent crimes and the situations which they live. And just how people interact and other things continue to go on and on. But another thing that I've noticed is that for me, I spent COVID, flying around the country, hanging out with some of the worst people, but you know we were hanging out at bars. And that camaraderie and that sense of companionship that a lot of people were missing in 2020 and 2021, we weren't missing. I mean, I was deeply missing out because I hated everybody around me, but everyone else was having a great time. So I think too, that's been underreported a great deal. And I don't really know why. Because to me, it seems pretty obvious. If you're going out every weekend and you're having a blast and COVID isn't real, of course, you're going to want to adopt whatever you believe to the people that are around you. You want to fit in. Yeah, that's something that you write so compellingly about is this idea of the camaraderie and the relationship building. In my day job, a lot of it is thinking and writing about conspiracy theories, how people get wrapped up in them. And a big part of it that we don't really talk about is the relationships that I have friends from high school who are deep into QAnon and a big thing about it is that they are in their day to today lives, maybe they're not being supported, maybe they're not being told that they smart that they're smart, maybe they don't feel very smart on a day to today basis. And now someone is telling them, not only are you smart, you're seeing something that no one else sees or smarter than everyone around you and how seductive that is. And so I don't know, I think that your work really helps us understand that so much of extremism and why people get wrapped up in it can really be about the relationships and the camaraderie. Yeah, yeah, thank you. I mean, I was raised evangelical. And a lot of being raised in being told something nobody else knows, and you have to tell everyone. So they understand. And, you know, people don't believe the raptors are going to happen. But when it happens, you'll be up there in heaven. And everybody who ever laughed at you will be down here. And I see a lot of that, especially within the QAnon community. There would be times people to talk to you. Thank you and I'd be like, oh, am I 8 years old again or be back in church? Is that what this is? Because it feels like it. So yeah, yeah, I think that sense of we have figured something out that nobody else can. We've cracked the code. And we're having a great time I'll join it is so important to understanding why this is happening. Yeah. I mean, I think it's one of those things that's maybe difficult to acknowledge because it's a little bit complex. You know, you mentioned earlier when we first started talking that some of the names of the far right extremists that you were embedded with during this time in your life, we wouldn't know their names. And I guess one of my questions is, are there ways that you see these fringe movements and fringe leaders finding their way into more traditional mainstream right wing politics? They're writing legislation and they work at foreign embassies. So I think they're there. Damn. Like, what can you really say to that? Let's take a quick break.

So, you know, when you were doing this work, when you were embedded with these people, did you ever have a time where someone said something to you and you almost slipped and you almost like, what was it like to be embedded with these people, you know, you've got far right fringe people blowing up your phone, texting you for a date, stuff like that. Like, what was that like? And did you ever have a moment where you almost slept? Somebody said something to you that was so out of pocket that you almost were like, I'm gonna let this whole ruse fall by the wayside. Yeah, but it's like so stupid. I dealt with so much for so long. And I was my first undercover thing was in November of 2020. And then in August of 2021, I flew to Portland, Oregon to go on a date. With a former member of patriot front, who, again, it's helping write legislation. And he was like, there was going to be a fight. BLM and antifa are going to fight the Proud Boys. And you will have a picnic and we'll watch it. And I was like, is this like the battle of bull run? And he was like, that's a spirit. So I flew out and the whole thing was a bias because probably is a minute up going into a Kmart parking lot, and then tear gassing themselves..

"Start with a big story. Is you know it's impossible to ignore big numbers. And i'll just give you the headlines of three stories. But they're all the same story. Basically i just i like the three headlines because they all tell a little bit different side of it. The first year was immortals club raises additional twenty six million dollars. The second year was from bloomberg says meg. Whitman backed firm to way sale of overwatch team again talking about immortals gaming club and then the third immortals gaming club raises twenty. Six million led by ex quickly. Exact meg whitman. So if you put all these three together you sort of have all the information. You need witches with immortals calling her ex quickly exact. I mean could she is that that has got to be the most subtle you tag career up until on his business like her. Oh the ebay right yeah. That's better than leading quickly. Wow you're only as good as your last gig. You're only as good as your last exum be. Feels like something. Like as a as a term. Like i would order an like an exotic restaurant like well. I will start with the vegetable three way. Medley have the x. Qube for my main interest rate and goes just leaving puzzled. Sometimes i am puzzled. William by how your brain works that brain that it's such a funny term. So so here's here's what we know from the just the three headlines. Immortals gaming is raising a raised twenty six million dollars. It's being led by meg whitman. Who used to be equipped he also ebay footmen footnote and they're looking to sell their overwatch team. Believe it or not so. They've already got rid of their like previously. Got rid of their <hes>. Call of duty league team <hes>. And now the overwatch league team. They're looking to to get rid of it and i'll just read. I'm going to present you all the information guys. And then you can discuss. But it says immortals gaming intends to focus less on city specific teams and more on businesses related to online gaming such as gamers club a subscription service in latin america which connects video game players. The company said last week. It's selling a team playing and activists call of duty league to one hundred thieves <hes>. And now so. They've sold off their call of duty league team now. They're saying they want to sell their los angeles valley and overwatch team. In the meantime the raid they raised twenty. Six million led by meg whitman. What do you guys make this news. There's a lot of. there's a lot to unpack. You're right the amount. They've raised be <hes>. That they're divesting of assets sort of as part of this razor almost next to it which you don't usually hear about <hes>. You guys think jeff. Lindsay william whoever wants to start here. What do you guys think of of mortals gaming club. And the way they're going. Let me go last. I have some some hot takes. Let me last go first. Then let's let's open with some hot takes you're all my take on. This is a little is a little more nuanced. But i think what's really interesting about this announce those two things to read into this. One is a mortals has just not done well as in east sports work right. They haven't won anything. They haven't really built a differentiated brand. They've been blown. Apart in the lifestyle category versus other orbs about the best thing they did back in late two thousand eighteen by gamers club right and make a move into south american marquette. This reads like a real strategic shift into you know gaming services and service provision right. Because you don't. You don't sell off both gated franchises and in particular. You don't sell off call of duty called duties actually starting to perform now like it's unusual to sell that asset unless you are <hes>. If you're still committed to really making the team piece work so i think an underscore here as immortals you know is going to be getting out of the team space. I think a second thing i would add to this though in the morrison is the fact that they are announcing looking for a sale of overwatch without the buyer. List william razi to me because that is a direct that first of all signals a little bit of urgency right like we're trying to get rid of this asset gimme buyers right because like to be honest with you like like you don't need for an asset like that you know you don't you don't really need to do this sort of thing right like you don't know who the people are who are in the market for this <hes>. The the second thing is. I think this is like a forcing mechanism with activision blizzard. It seems like they want out of that league and announcing they're going to sell is a really good piece of lever to communicate activision blizzard. Hey it's not working right and also to kind of tip their hat about the seriousness of their frustrations with with that business right now. So that's my read on. This is the announcement of sale is a little tactical. It's partly strategically. They want to divest. And it's partly. They're trying to communicate something to activision blizzard because they didn't announce again these. These are sort of deals. Where like you read about in favor of like. Oh i too could go by that. You know what i mean. There's a limited set of groups and these guys ono each other right like you. Don't you're not going to be surprised by who's coming out by this org slot like it wasn't like come on hundred. Thieves did call of duty right. It wasn't like josie sports club.

It's mixed with terms like advisory but also curfew it's mixed with terms like you know that Essentially they sound like mandates but they're also guidance their requirements. But they're not and it's like what does it actually mean and then they mix it up with lies and make it all tastes good. It's very hard to follow City officials say they wanna give business owners the option so they their other customers will feel safe while shopping. If a police officer is called. the officer will escort. I'm not going to. I would not feel safe while shopping. There maybe they let people make their own choices and then everybody can go where they feel safe so this apparently nobody is some sort of middle ground between a trespass and and not nothing whatsoever. So as you're pointing out yes if somebody's on your property and you tell them to leave and they don't then you can call the police and they will no trespass they'll they'll possibly arrest them for that. I hear it says if a police officer is called by the business for again for somebody not wearing a mask. The officer is instructed to escort the unwilling customer off property without issuing them citation. Okay so it's less than trespass correct. Okay at least that's what they're saying. The deputy better these deputy city manager says this quote as you would with anyone who would be blurred belligerent or difficult inside your store. Certainly we don't want to arrest people and we certainly don't want to have to escort people from businesses but obviously the police will do what they have within their powers to do to ensure they have a safe environment and businesses and customers feel comfortable and make sure that those of us who are not maske never feel safe and never feel comfortable. Who was it that was saying today that they felt like one of our callers. Yeah was gene the christian anarchist. I think he said he. He feels like he's in the matrix and that any moment any one of these customers will turn into agent smith one of the agents. It is creepy man. Being around all those people with masks on very inhuman. It's very strange. It's a very strange feeling because you know as a as a human being able to see other people's faces and seeing people smile at you is reassurance that you're in a place with people who are good people who you know are you. Don't know them right but they're smiling. And that's that's a good feeling something that that at some internal level that we all look for or that we all feel good about and by taking away people's faces from them. You take away that that silent communication that is so beneficial to having a polite society. Graph data still steeler our faces. Right off our heads but you know i. It does feel like hana of the word. I'm i'm this isn't it omniscience. No surely trying to say you're not admonition. What's the word. What are you trying to communicate like just very bizarre feeling like like. There's somebody empowering controlling everything i think isn't another for but anyway so it's just so weird when i'm in a store and every single person is wearing a mask right. It wouldn't feel weird. I think if some people weren't wearing masks the fact every single person it's worse than it has been. Yeah yeah and. I've only encountered that. I think once probably but you've only encountered it works. Every single person encountered at once where he walked into a store where everything. That's how it is almost all the time. Now i see it. Yeah i i mean. I've seen rare that there's one other person every now and then there's one other guy the on the store to He's definitely into. We're not everybody's been wearing a mask but most people have been wearing masks but they're still like that one person you'll bump into in the store with isn't wearing a mask also is my big experienced And the fact that. I've been in stores where not single person wasn't wearing a mask because that's what's so creepy. Let's go to dave in new hampshire. Is this dave ridley.

See, you're not pounding the table hard enough. That's how you let the people know you really mean it. What's the saying? If you have the facts, you pound the facts if you don't pound the table It's unbelievable what the state is doing to its population. They really are treating us like lab mice. They scare us half to death. Tell us if we leave our homes. We're going to get the Rhona and we're going to die. And once they have a stuck inside our homes, they shut down the movie theaters. They shut down the shopping malls. They shut down all of the places where you could theoretically go to to cool off during the summer, and then they turn our power off when it's 120 degrees outside your locked at home, and he's telling you, you got to keep that a C above 78.

This dangerous heat wave will be with us through the weekend and even longer In some areas it's predicted the last through Wednesday in Los Angeles, valleys and mountains. Los Angeles City and county are opening cooling centers over the next few days to help residents deal with the heat wave. Call 311 to find a location. A statewide flex alert will be in effect this afternoon, calling for residents to turn off their lights and help conserve electricity. Jeff McKay reports that nearly every state including nearly all of the battleground election states have been put on notice by the U. S Postal Service, saying they may not be able to keep up with what could be an avalanche and mail in election ballots. The story first appeared in The Washington Post. The US Postal Service recently said detailed letters to 46 states warning it cannot guarantee all ballots cast by mail for the November election will arrive in time to be counted. The letter's included a very ominous warning. Even if people follow all of their state's election rules, the pace of the Postal Service delivery may disqualify their votes. It comes down to cost cutting, the Postal Service says. Right now we could take a week for mail to be delivered in some places. It's so bad that Pennsylvania asked their state Supreme Court for permission to count ballots delivered three days after election day as a way to make sure that all votes are counted. Jeff McKay, Washington Americans have mixed views of the economy, according to the first look at August, consumer sentiment from the University of Michigan, Americans have become more pessimistic about the five year economic outlook. The reading is down 18 points from April. Consumers are more optimistic about buying especially homes with interest rates lower.

"10 Problem. The black community is the absence of fathers. I have been on the air for 35 years. In 35 years. I tried to get on. Jesse Jackson tried to get on. Al Sharpton tried to get on Louis Farrakhan invited them all to my show. Collectively, 200 times. They stopped even returning my phone call, but one of these so called leaders I was able to get on my program. His name is Croatia and flew me at the time. He was the president of the end of a Lacey P and I said to him for bait on my first question. Mr Inflammation, As between the presence of white racism or the absence of black fathers, which poses the bigger threat to the black community and without missing a beat to his credit, he said. The absence of black fathers what we ought to be talking about these people out in the streets are angry. They're angry because they they are not getting the kind of direction they wanted, but they need to have their angry to park secure, even said I know for a fact that had I had a father in the house. I would have had more discipline. I would have been more confident. Denzel Washington film called Roman Gabriel Israel Woman, Israel Esquire about the criminal justice system, the justice system, and he's on the red carpet and reported sticks and Mike in his face and says I wouldn't think about the that the mass incarceration of black people, and I just knew you were gonna talk about how the police were railroading black people throwing him into jail for no reason. Instead, he said, it all starts in the home. If you don't have a father in the home, the court's become your your father and the jail's become your home. I saw it in my generation and every generation there after it all starts in the home. Mike drop Why? Why, though? Has there been such a change in that regard over the last 2030 40 years, because because if you mentioned in the film when Lyndon Johnson launched a so called war on poverty, he literally sent out social workers still knock on doors and surprise women of the availability of their quote right to welfare. Close quote, provided there was no man in the house, so there was a disincentive to have a man in the house and insensitive to marry the government and an incentive to abandon your financial and moral responsibility. Didn't just affect the black community. 25% of white kids are now born outside of wedlock that with the same number of blacks in 1965 when Daniel Patrick morning hand wrote a famous or report called the Negro Family, a case for national action at 25% out of wedlock birthrate, he thought it was hideous and is going to lead to all sorts of horrible consequences. Fast forward 25% of white kid and now born outside of wedlock. As mentioned, 70% of black kids are present Hispanic kids are this is the number one social problem in America. It has a effect on crime as an effect on dropout and an effect on your ability to compete. A zoo worker in America has an effect on everything, and that is the number one problem facing America and Democrats can't talk about it because they have to look in the mirror. They have to rethink all of the stupid social problems that they that they have pushed and Republicans we have to stand up on. Be willing to take criticism didn't want to do that, either. So it's not even discussed. Of going back to u SE. You saying you couldn't get the black leaders on like Farrakhan Fair contact about this? Why wouldn't he? Come on your show? I mean, he stands the staff he talks about You all right? You know what? You're absolutely right, you know, and very often said this is a man who at least understands the danger of the welfare state. Even opposed affirmative. Actually thought it was demeaning to suggest you should lowered standards in order for people to to to compete, But then he throws it in with this. With this? Ah, mysticism on anti Semitism and anti white rhetoric. He says. He got such charisma and he wasted it. But he gets it. He turned around a lot of black men coming out of prison by getting them to embrace God and to stand up to their responsibilities. And I remember when he did the 1,000,000 Man March. I didn't embrace the man, but I embraced the message. You know, Larry and I was going to get to this. I want to talk a little bit about the Sean Jackson comments, and it's a good segue way because does Sean Jackson had quotes and and references to Farrakhan on his social media, along with his nonsensical, a parent quote falsely attributed to Hitler. With respect to Farrakhan, Would you have him on your show? Given the fact that you agree with maybe certain approach, but given his his disposition with respect to anti Semitism? His his feelings about the Jews. And you've been a friend of the Jewish people. You you spoke of Valley Best Shalom Synagogue in the Valley in Los Angeles Valley. How do you How do you have him on the show? If he would accept easily, he'd have to be prepared to get his butt kicked because that's what's gonna happen, And that's why he won't accept. He's going to give her everything that you just now said. How in the world can you possibly in America say this kind of stuff doesn't get wealthy hunt from a multi millionaire into countries to claim holds black people back when your whole mantra is the man holding black people back, that's that kind of stuff he's going to here, and that is why he won't come on, and there's a problem in the black community, And he's part of that problem, and the problem is anti Semitism. Most blacks are not anti Semitic. But according to the Anti Defamation League pulls a commission over years, blacks are 2.5 times more likely the non black gentiles to be Semitic. And people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan are part of the reason and the other reason is so much ignorance as you Well know, Allen June have been friends for blacks for decades. A man named Julius Rosenwald work work with Booker.

"Rank was kind of like street. cred like like not you know most kids on campus interesting. Who was but the gamers on campus? They would be like. Oh that's Kevin. He's the second best in our high school and you know going into college. It was the same to they'd be like. Oh that's that's Kevin on leaping And so you know the I think a lot of the You know the misconceptions exceptions and the stereotypes They they still exist. Definitely but I think we're now coming into an age where mark you know I. I mentioned the seventy percent statistic that applies not just a college student. I WANNA say it applies to you and significant portion of just the world march. You know we live in an era where you know. It's not uncommon or uncalled for celebrities and professional athletes to openly. Admit I say it's Delta openly. Be Proud of the fact that they are gamers. They love Games. And you know it's it's it's it's kind of cool to a little bit nerdy And you know I think a big part of this is just you know as as these becaming communities grow it's a bit of a snowball effect You know I agree with you. Can't be what you can't see. And so you know when when Gaming Community Easter started they were you know like very very niece and you know just just from looking at the clube like okay. You know it'd be like you know a a bunch of eating kids you know playing the Russians right and it'd be like okay. Well you know I don't really fit into that or It'd be open to playing like tabletop games and you'd be like okay. That's not really by thing. But as communities grow as a community start attracting A diverse number of people People from all walks of life Different MRIS different ages different interests and appearances. You start looking at called and saying that just looks like every other club on on campus. That looks like any other committee. It's it's the same as any other club except they love game. I love to why are part of that and so I think it gaming communities as as they grow or are doing so much for de stigmatizing what. It looks like to be a Gamer 'cause I mean like our research shows that you know somebody gamers from the inside. It's just like getting over. You know what what they're supposed to look like on the outside and I think you know every year that just gets better I it's harder to you can't just take someone off the street and be like at that guy's definitely a game relic. You can't tell anymore. So what about East sports is a viable career path because clearly clearly this is a business and therefore that means there are opportunities outside of just the product outside of of gaming gaming site of design design and programming. And there's obviously much more that goes into putting on the events running the business you know all those different things that go into it. What are those opportunities? Look like I can eat boards and are those opportunities growing. How does somebody best prepare for this growth surge may how did they get in on this? Yeah taking your classes. Step one and I I I do I appreciate so much that classes And not even just like university classes but even online talks seminars article On on gaming industry jobs even you know websites like hit. Marker jobs All of us so much to remind students that there are more jobs in the industry than just being a pro player or a game designer or a play tester which for some funny reason or like the three jobs at that most people think this yeah But you know you you said it yourself like any other growing industry like any growing business business. Almost every job that exists out there In any other company you know in any other industry also exist in the world world. There's you know there's gaming data analysts and there's gaming brand managers and lawyers and doctors COPYWRITERS photographers video. Editors animators There's so many diverse job in the industry and when I say industry I'm I'm talking about you know e sports but of course the gaming industry as a whole But but but even in sports you know. I think he's sports. This is sports is direct is always interconnected with the gaming industry. Like no matter how you put it you know. We often talk about this particular phenomenon where you know. No one really owned basketball or football but in the sports world the developers very much own the IP intellectual property of the Games and so there's no way that sport can be truly separated from the game developer and so in the Industry The sports industry industry in order for the eastport to happen and also means that if you're a game designer or a QA tester producer new are fueling the industry to better games dry better competition and better competition drives the sports industry And so so young There's so many jobs available in the the eastward industry I think For most people just trying to identify you know which ones are good for predom- beaches the traditional college education. You know there's there's no meters for it. So how do you figure out what's good for you. That's that's the big question. Yeah I think that's a really great perspective perspective on tier there to that sense of ownership in the product. I think that's really cool. So you've been a blizzard for a while. Now you've had staff and people all around around you. What do you look for when you're hiring or scouting the next generation of students or you're out talking to college teams are or campus groups or clubs? What are you looking for for when you're looking to fill internships or contract roles fulltime jobs? What is it that stands out to you when you're looking at their profile of the next generation of sports employees? He's yeah that's a great question So my department loser Tampa. We primarily focused on providing internships and part time contract opportunities to college students It's not only something that we're very passionate about from like a mentorship point of view and but we also think that right now. There's a huge gap between when you are qualified to be you like a an internal blizzard or riot or any of these huge AAA game companies And when you're just a regular student And that gap is because like I said there's there's very few classes and very not a lot of times and information that help you prepare for that when you're when you're a freshman so By the time you're a sophomore junior eligible for these internships. You know if if you weren't working towards being competitive for for internships for the past couple years ears you're just GonNa get passed up and so For us when we look at these Part time contract roles we WANNA help students get their foot in the door And we WANNA help teach them a little bit more about what it feels like to work with a team. I mean so. It's a lot of soft skill development And and I think for most of the sports industry. It's you're not working on the production side. Were the for the business side Were developer side. It is a lot of soft skill development It's a lot of you know Like people management right. It's a lot of communication a lot of empathy and self awareness It's a lot of you know just being able to interact well with with the team And and kind of drive in that startup environment and so that's kind of what we look for when we when we hire contractors and injuring. Look sure editions. Self starters were fast learning Adult is so so important because the industry is so young and job descriptions and you know what the the Meta game and for For being for job is changes new every year. And so. It's almost like you know if you were going to take a if we're in east sports major by the time you've finished the major. The major might no longer be relevant and so just being someone who can adapt quickly. Who can work with a team? Who has proven their leadership shit skills INFO for we actually target a lot of our TESTA club meters Because to to be the president of the club you basically there are proving that you are just Kinda like vicious off starter from can work with people who is you're probably going to be very successful and so we look to a lot of these college judge gaming communities as hot spots for hiring directly into the sports industry. And we've seen it to to work very well so so many of our alumni test alumni so either club leaders or you know our contractors. You've worked with US FOR A couple of years. They go on to take on awesome jobs in eastwards industry We have several alumni. Who now works for you know? Ny Excel for Vancouver. Titans Titans or as a shock and Los Angeles Valley and And we also see them. Of course you know his back from the sports industry and step into roles at riot or blizzard or twitch or discord One of our alumni. It's actually a very well known Host and interviewer for LVS. Oddly she she was the chapter president at Chapman University and so will I think it really is in the soft skills. They really is in demonstrating that you can be a quick learner and a game changer in a fast occurring industry and that you can you can push yourself and be passionate Kevin. This is awesome. You're sharing so much great advice in this growing sector of the sports industry I WANNA finish finish up with this and I really appreciate your time. You've gone into such great detail. Into into the aspects of the industry. People need to focus on and just the programs that you're running in your class that you're teaching aging but I'm curious about you know you you look at East sports and its growth cycle and you see what's happening globally. And I've read and researched in many places were the east. Sports industry is expected to grow to a one point. Four Billion Dollar Industry by two thousand twenty. That's crazy for such a young industry sector put put on your future hat. Have a little fun with this. Where are we with East sports? In ten years you know what kind of jobs demand when and how big is the market. What are we doing? How crazy is it? I mean this is such a young environment that is pushing for change and like you said even if somebody's doing a major that might be so different in four years from now like where's it going to be where where we going. That's a big question. That's a good question. It's a tough question to I feel like you you know. Ten years is is far in the future that you know I feel like i WanNa talk about when I when I when I dream for but I think.

"To actually hang on this last story about over watch for a moment rob you Norris you guys were really against the idea of role locked but so far the results seem pretty positive what do you what do you think about it and I do still stand by some of the you know reason that we are brought up about why you know what role like changes however if there's there's IT one aspect to it that that we slow awhile to see if it if it's sort of a pans out but if the rollout can even the feel in a way that going forward we no longer see these huge like you know bridge G. tug goats Manisha type com's it's really done great uncertain leveling the playing field in and kind of start to bring back a little bit more parity to the top and the bottom of the league I mean I I'm a little bit more skeptical I think that remains to be seen I've seen worse you know a matter of initially we'll suss itself out Blake even in a two two two all it takes is for you know blizzard to release a new character that completely bus everything that's been the thing is is in in this is the thing that doesn't sit quite right with me I understand your point of parity bringing the top and the bottom in close for a little bit but that's not exactly what happened the bottom team set a for suite the top they ought to do is to glue shouldn't happen and I think a lot of people are gonna be pointing towards role lock as the reason why and the only reason why this isn't the first time that it's happened you also had the Los Angeles valley were the first team to defeat the tie ins you had the Houston outlaws take down the shock after their Golden State sure so it's not like something like this is suddenly just happening out of the blue why this is a big deal I mean this is akin to the NFL say no the pro style offense is the only office that will be allowed in the league running in no more nor going out of stock on and it seems counter to the spirit of competition and the league and making decisions for your team no I agree the thing is is that I understand on its surface while they felt that they needed to make a change but the matter already at this point was us in itself I'll stage three was one of the most exciting stages of all why is that anybody have watched ever and so I really think would to to to come in and that you know people are excited we're seeing a lot more heroes get plates awhile give me that but at the same time give it a couple more weeks the top teams will still be the top teams sure bottom teams may pick away in here or there but they're still going to be a body why does it take the hand of blizzard coming in to be able to direct that moment is that even see now that the deaths of where I've always been within it happened with the big mercy changes last year happened with Brigitte tapping with two two two but the argument behind it is is that now that the two two two is is sort of a locked in place and balancing is going to be easier I had to do it again you won't see meta shift on the same scale as often and that's my point is I think the largest benefit you see from some of his remains to be seen yes and that is that when you have a locked in meta of two two two you can now balance champions our heroes as they come out or as they need balancing around that concept is a much easier thing to bounce about throwing everything in the chaos oldies song never what it became a thing had to do to ban instituted when Brigitte they came into the game exactly what with the playoffs coming up here just a few weeks and sigma coming in I think if we're gonna see a big medicine it's going to be a tank or a support character that's going to shift it up so that might be a good bellwether all right well listen we want to get your take on this connect with us.

A lot of people don't understand you've been everywhere with what you've gotta tell me. How did you start in the business? I was lucky enough in Detroit to audition for the lone ranger radio show, and I got the part and started working regularly. And then I was drafted and went to. Career. Yes korea. That was a long long long time ago, and then came back in from their way where I was. Created a production house, and we did dramatic shows. And sitcom why we in the service.

It was just it was marvelous in I think I wrote you a letter once I'm not sure it ever got to you. But you know, you were instrumental in a lot of things that I did in my life both professionally and personally, really. Yeah. You helped form a foundation in me.

Or was that your personality? It really was a lot of fun. You know for me. And it was it really came quite easily to me. I think there's a little bit of Loretta and everybody, you know, in every woman out there, and I, and I think manager door that you know.

Thank you. I want you to set the stage for Casey because we're going to listen to one of your readings tell us a little bit about this. And we're going to play it here. Okay. Back in the sixties Beatle mania in sixty four and I was working in Los Angeles. I had been working in the bay area San Francisco Oakland bay area for a couple of years and a twelve year old girl sent me a letter and in the letter she talked about going to the venue, which was called the cow palace to see the Beatles. And she she she wrote the letter and after I read the letter I said, I read it again. And the reason I read it again is because people called and said do that again what I wanna hear that. Again. Anything was Beatles. People would want to hear this. I loved it. And shortly thereafter. After I put some music behind it. It was bought by Warner Brothers in whatever others released it his record. Would you like to hear? Let's listen to from beginning to end here. We it's the root of the long distance dedication it began with this girl whose name is Elena and she's about to speak.

I'm writing about. Hug my favorite deal. George Harrison on August nineteenth. Editor deal performance it account balances San Francisco, two of my friends came along with me. Naturally. I saw George walk on stage and screen, my heart. When he's saying I knew that I had to touch when they announced they last saw Derek before that I was with and told him that I was going outside and try and find the limousines, and they believe in you said that he'd come with me. We ran outside and found that other people have the same idea was so big I lost. I started to run all around looking for him. But I couldn't find him. Finally, I reached a point behind the cow palace. When nobody was decided to turn back as I started to leave. I thought that I saw something behind the bushes. I looked and I saw the limousines close together separated limousines bummy without thinking I climbed the fence. They were very well hidden in the public eye, my heart skip to be what I figured. They were the same limousines, the Beatles would leave. Something caught my eye. I looked up and saw George and walk behind them Ringel and John Paul. We're talking with a couple of guys. They didn't see me before. I knew what was happening. I was wanting to I caught him. I sure they cling. Taken by surprise when he realized what was happening. He smiled at me and said Hiber tears running down, my cheeks, and I couldn't say a word. Paul stood there and stared Ringo passed to look at me with his mouth open John passed and just glanced at me a second. Followed by a couple of men climbed in one limousine guys are trying to pull me away while George Brandon Paul staring quietly when they pulled us apart follow the door for George client in the car. They were both in the car. I broke away from the guards in Iran and touch the door handle. Both turned around and wave to me with big wings on their faces.

"KFI AM six forty Conway Trump rolled in Dave coons from channel seven. How are you man? Well, I've been in Vegas all week. I notice Attaran you like, I love Vegas. I'm really not a gambler. I'm rooting Vegas guy. I was up there for CAS and kind of fun to walk around and see it, and I was a kid. I wanted to go to Las Vegas. My parents would go right. When you go there, and you kind of hang around, and if you're not into it, and you're just not into it. Right. There's some guys like Aaron bender is a guy that can go to Vegas and spent four or five nights there and not gamble a dime. Last time I went to Vegas zero gambling. That was me. But yeah. And I always tell bender if it wasn't for the show, we would've never run in Denver. We have never met. Get up early to walk through the lobby of the hotel the casino, rather go to the Starbucks to get a coffee, and you see those dealers standing there at the empty tables. It's like five forty five in the morning while they're waiting for somebody. I'm that guy. I remember going to Vegas with a group of I don't know. Eighteen of us. And I was gambling all night drinking all night went to the went to bed around six five thirty six in the morning when the sun's coming up, and I ran into the rest of my buddies were all in their gym clothes with the basketball. And one of the guys knew somebody and they were going to the UNLV Jim to play basketball. And I was just getting in the elevator to go upstairs to sleep till four pm. Wow, your life. And you know, I know you're a hockey fan. Two nights arenas right there. New York New York and whether it was a game on Tuesday night. And you know, I was trying to get back into the parking garage. It all day, but you know, that whole area then they got the raiders stadium. Going up you drive up the freebies. See those cranes are building that big news story. Oh, it's the skeleton is up now. Can't miss it. So Dave gave is Weather Channel seven. You went to CAS the consumer electronic show. They don't they don't like to call it that anymore. They say, no, no, it's just CAS. Now. All right. All right. SDS, and what is the main purpose of CS to to show everybody what they can't afford this. It's the showcase of technology and anything that has technology in it. And what's funny is when you and I went up there for the autumn motive side, right? I saw you do the the the couple of stories, and they're the autonomous cars up there. And and and also electric cars Mercedes Benz introduced a conventional car yet. Took it out to the desert. Well, I didn't get to drive out to the desert with some engineers, and and the German guys drove me around a little bit. That's the new electric Reseda Benz SUV. It'll be out in about a year pretty cool. And yeah, but Mercedes-Benz also reduced their new CLA, which is not electric autonomous. It's got some technology in it. But they have realized that all eyes are on CBS Mercedes-Benz is not to be exhibiting at the Detroit auto show next week. CBS instead, that's wild. Yeah. How how important that's become. Well, that's the thing. And they realize okay, we can get the automotive press to come and we can get the tech press in the tech bloggers and everybody else, and then just the publicity because there's so many people tend to right, but, but, you know, look, my great grandchildren, and maybe my grandchildren. We'll probably never have to learn how to drive well. That was a big theme. This year is all these call them pods. I call them pods. It's like these driverless shuttles. I saw the one what was the one that was like orange or blue looked like a pumpkin, brother. They're kind of everywhere. But I was talking to the folks at Bausch. And that's the thing. It's like you would go to the city. Let's say you need to go to downtown LA. You would go near downtown LA in your car, and it might be self driving or might be driving assist you'd get out of it. And then you'd someone this part to compete you up on whatever Cornyn Iran and you'd hop in. And then it would take you to your destination and it would go park itself. And then it would take you back to your car. We're going to the airport and things like that. So that was continental which had a pod that not only was going to be an autonomous delivery vehicle for like Amazon had this little four legged robot that would walk out of the thing to open and then put your package in the in the doorstep. The office. Ready for? I mean, you got to remember the self-driving thing, it's they can do it. But it's the it's the liability and legality to they can test them. Now. Oliver Las Vegas says he's active these BMW's driving around and they have a special license plate on a driver behind the wheel by even have a sign on the cursing. Hey, worked for active drive this car. But you're just kind of sitting there as a backup. It's gonna be a while. I noticed and again, Dave coons weather from channel seven, but I've noticed around town that they've fixed almost all the Crosswalks near the Crosswalks used to be painted with a line across and then I seven or eight lines perpendicular to that. As you go across the street. Well, now, they've taken the the top and the bottom lines off because those cars were recognizing that as a as a an object in the road and on the freeways to they're taking out the Botts dots, and they're putting in a special kind of noticed that restricting. They've been doing on some of the they're white, and they're black a really show up. No matter what the contrast of the lady conditioned because the economist cars have to see the right? Taking away the bumps. Yeah. They're they're taking them off. And they're putting in these special. They're kind of like a two tone lane dividers stripe. And that's for these self driving cars the the Nissan system. The pro pilot it needs to see those the Cadillac supercrew that let's take your hands off the wheel. That's why to see those lines. And that's why they work well at a place like here or Las Vegas as going be six inches of snow on top of those. I also noticed that you know, being born and raised out here in Los Angeles valley bumpkin from the flats me to where on those bums on the freeway they've been there since I was a kid and people don't know this. But there's reflectors on the other end of them. So if you're driving the wrong way on the freeway, all you see is they're all read it, and you notice that if you're maybe an off ramp and the sun is head of you, and you seem in your mirror used to joke with those things were called driving. By braille when you hit those boss dot, right? You know, and if you're really really buzzed and you're driving. Remember, you're not part of the white train. You're part of the red train. So if the if you're on the if you're at night, you're the red train all the lights in front of you have to be read if all the lights in front of your white, you're on the wrong. It's funny that you bring that up because I wonder what's going to happen with those that safety feature that they're taking these dots out. I I hadn't thought about it. But those dots are really a southern California or a southern United States thing. They don't have my I in Cleveland because there's no with the plow notice on the Kenyan roads where they have to use snowplows like an angel's crest. They do a rec- recess part of the. Oh, that's inside there. I know what that's the changing getting ready for these Thomas cars. They have to make the roads autonomous car friendly being able to see these lines. Right. Dave Kunst with this. Here's a question. I have for you. You know, they're they're wrong way drivers are killing people almost daily. The annual numbers are not looking good. It was a family in Michigan family of three kids into adults going coming back from Christmas and wrong way. Driver hits them and kills all of them. Now, two things. One a friend of mine detective Rudy hours with LAPD seventy drive at night never drive in the fast lane because that is the wrong way driver. They think that's the slow lane. And they're always there are driving to the right, right? Exactly. Right. Yeah. And the second thing is this can all be stopped tomorrow. If like when when you go to Santa, Monica beach, right, and you wanna park there, and it's ten or twelve bucks. And you said, well, screw it. I'll go in the the exit right and those and you your tires get punctured. It's happened to me accidentally got my tires punctured because I went wrong way on one of the streets. If they put those on every on ramp offramp, then car hits those and goes to drive the wrong way. Four flat tires time. I got to the freeway, but you've seen these car. Chases people can drive for flat tires how about if the technology was that through tracking GPS the car knew you were going the wrong direction. And it can just shut the car. Right. That's gonna happen. Can you stay with us? Gave us fresh back from Las Vegas this EES show. And we'll talk to him about what he saw there. What's new? What's interesting, and we're live on KFI. Ben what's going on? LA county department of public health has confirmed a case of measles in a person who visited the paradise cove beach cafe in Malibu, I was there for about five hours December twenty nine people who were there that day should watch for symptoms.
