"Is what's covert brought to us and the economic destruction that brought with it What's new? What's going on? Where to begin I. It's being nuts. So. One of the things they mentioned before but everyone's probably now I'm security researcher. So I'm also looking at security vulnerabilities all the time and breaking into style and and just watching the security research landscape is bonkers the last two and a half weeks I've seen over thousand vulnerabilities draw. Well I mean. It because people are homeless board I don't get it I think a little bit of all of the above so. Thankfully like most of these pitch being responsibly. Okay. Which of course begs the question how many went Well. But they're beans and doozy's I. mean you know the F. Five hundred not where suddenly we're dealing with Dr transversal that give you root again like what like I thought thirty years ago that was done we're seeing DNS, abilities Microsoft's Sigrid, which apparently is being the code base for seventeen years. which can my? Like You know. It's it's new it's new to somebody. Listening. Until had a whether, you want to call it a flaw or A. Nicely available feature in their code that somebody discover Oh crap. You can do bad security things with. You know your your teachers my. My functionality. Hey, I've been like I've grown up believing anything that makes mankin break. It's just a matter of time and resources. and. So I'm not surprised to see stuff, it's just the sheer weight of it coming out and there was some special challenges wall because like all of those phones pretty much where against infrastructure product. So against VPN products against firewalls against load balances, etc. That's bad news because like right now is when we want our infrastructure to be defended wool and so within the League, which is. For those now, it's a loose collective of law enforcement and security researchers. About fifteen hundred or so from eight different countries working to protect the healthcare industry The League's infrastructure team basically just INS and look to these one abilities looked where things we've honorable and try to assess what's the risk? How do we notify companies etc, and some of it was was pretty scary because some of the impacts the were coming out to the advisories where not really that will that you know that miss some really obvious. Severity points that missed how they vote could potentially be manipulated and given the fact that everyone sort of sitting around at home PFC's dropped for some of these in a matter of hours by the F. Five on there was a pse on twitter within about four to five house. Yeah. So I think this is a discussion that's been ongoing for since I've industry probably since you've been around too where the severity and impacted all those all those pieces that make up the how the criticality rating have seemingly been up for debate. For forever right we we've had We've had an a rating system that's been developed deck. We've probably had at least two that I can think of. Right And there's been frameworks and there's been. Lots of discussion across industry luminaries and and and everybody else alike. Where do you like? How do you determine where? Where are you? The discussion of how do we determine something's I know you've already got the face like I'm going to punch you if you out his lesson but. But the question is that I? Think it's legitimate is how do you get to a point where we all speak the same language on? This severity and impact the criticality of anything we drop vulnerabilities either in in an inner product in a in a company's infrastructure in

Jumping Into Markdown
"Many Stephen Hackett, and I, have joined is always of my co-host and friend Mr David sparkes. Hello. Steven. How are you? Today? I'm good. How are you? I am ready to talk about markdown. We're touching the third rail here. The podcasting Faux Pas, we're going to talk about a little bit about coating on an audio podcast. I, think mark down the big exception. As we get into this. The whole idea is that it's really simple and so I think we can talk to this syntax and be just fine. Yeah Yeah. Well, this is a good episode we're going deep on markdown today Marc out something that a lot of people are aware of, but not as many people know how to do and it is really easy get through this podcast today. Down pro. I think so too before we get into all of that just real quick it is. We are in August. Now, I don't know how that happened. But we we will be working on and planning episodes around Iowa's fourteen. Macara's Big Sur. Couple of people had had asked about those I. Think we'll do what we did last year and and have A. Episode per release win. That is nobody knows and so we we're kind of keeping an eye on apple said in their results at the phone will be later this year by a couple of weeks does that mean? In Big Sur. Later, by couple weeks to WHO knows nobody knows. So this is going to be a fun adventure all in together this year. And related questions I've had from people are what about shortcuts and the photos field guide the most of those areas got up with this new operating system I. Think I'm going to have an a free update shortcuts when they launch Iowa's where team, but the question is nobody knows when they'll launch it. So if they launch it next week, I will not have an update ready, but there will be an update eventually or hopefully on launch day for shortcuts followed by a free update photos both of those will be free last year. I had to charge for shortcuts because apple rewrote shortcuts I to do the whole thing from scratch fortunately, that's not the case this year. So I'll have some so free updates. If you've already about those field guides also today we are going to in more power users. We're GONNA talk some tech stuff stephen is getting ready to prep for the annual the podcast on and right there's a bunch of technology involved with that. So we're looking forward to talking about that more power users today. So technology and sobbing both. Both. Right now. I really this is a stranger I have a lot of questions. boy Yeah. So let's get into. It's going to mark down. Just. A touch of background markdown was created by John Gruber the writer of daring fireball. We spoke about this episode four, hundred, sixty, six AMAC power users where he was a guest talk about the history of it. He's given other interviews about the history of markdown. and. It's really cool I. Mean it is sort of the definition of writing a project to scratch an edge. You have. He wanted a tool for riding on the web that wasn't. Junkie and Messi like html is and markdown came out of that desire I. think that's pretty cool. Yeah I mean John had a blog. He was one of the first that I was aware of the did the linked posts you know where he would link something and make a few comments about it, but it also have more extensive posts. and. He wanted simple method right in. So he did He created his own tool, and who would a guest that it became such a big thing. It's everywhere and we're GonNa get to that later in the episode of just how many places you can use markdown and it shows up in some pretty surprising projects and websites across the Internet. And the idea of it really though at its at its foundational level is just something you can write with any plain text editor that at the end of the process gives you usable text for html at least that was the original idea now since then it's become so much more because now you can export as rich text and you can do all sorts of cool things with markdown but having a starting point where you can sit there with the keyboard and not have to fiddle with code snippets and make something that's usable later. That's right. So the initial pitch when Gruber announced it is that this is a tool to convert plane tech's to html for people who are riding on the web, and so if you're blogging and you need Italics were bold or links, you don't have to do that in html you can do it in mark down and then they're marginally two things. It's the syntax and there's an interpreter and you can. Get it on your website and it Lowe's html and everybody sees a regular web page. But like you said over the years it has. Shown up everywhere. It's even supported in x code now as of a couple of years ago, which is gonNA. Feel pretty good. If you're if you're John Right this product you built being blessed and put an exco that's gotta be pretty. Cool. Talking about those two pieces of let's break them down for a second because the first piece to me is almost is definitely more important than the second piece in the first piece is it's a text syntax where you can include links and rich text items without having a rich text. You know nobody in air quotes here, word processor at your disposal, and that is something that's very useful but the syntax in addition to being something that's easily convertible he also made it and I think this is the genius of markdown he made easily readable. So when you read if I put a page of html in front of anybody listening to the show next to page of mark down. It would be obvious how much easier it is to read markdown than html because h inasmuch codes and tags and other things in it that really get in the way of finding the words whereas markdown is all about the words and the very simple syntax we're gonNA teach you here shortly. embeds all that stuff for you. So you don't you don't need to worry about.

Zion leaves NBA bubble for 'urgent' family matter
"All right one to turn to this story from inside the bubble, and it's a big one the Pelicans announcing yesterday the Williamson left the NBA bubble yesterday morning. Because of under undisclosed urgent family medical matter now Williamson intends to return at some point here's this coach Alvin Gentry. Don't know anything right now from the standpoint of. Coming back and you know obviously us. We've discussed supportive. Amina's family and their privacy doing this time right now, you know. We played forty four games without him and. You know we have top stretching, and we also had a stretch for. We won twelve out of sixteen. Without Him, so obviously, he's a great player that we'll miss, but the one thing that we've always talked about even when we went through times is that. Next Man. Marc Spears joins US live from inside the bubble at Disneyworld mark. Seems a little unclear as to why he left. What are you hearing about that about why he left at this point? Look the PELICANS are keeping it really really close to the vest, and they've been like that all all season. Way Him, you know this is still a teenager very very protective of their future star, and it's a family matter so I certainly understand that, but when it comes to him coming back, Ryan is really complicated. Absence of seven days or less, he s a quarantine. Four days upon return to the bubble with negative tests needed each day. Longer than a week. He has quarantine for four days. If he has a negative test the final day seven days he has gone. Without a required COA testing he will quarantine for ten days, so the Pelicans will debut. On July thirtieth they're one of four teams that play in the first day to resumption. It's not a lot of time between now, and then they have their first criminals, and just a few days, so yeah. The PELICANS certainly have a lot to worry about in their hopes of trying to get back to the playoffs, Yeah and we certainly wish Zion Williamson, and is it well with this family matter I mean that's first and foremost here hoping they're okay, but I look at this as well and I say without him. What are their chances of moving far into the playoffs structure? Like Alvin said you know. They played forty four games without him. Brandon Ingram the all star. He played most of those games at power forward. Without Zion, but once I came back. He only missed one game, and they have a stretch for by the name of Niccolo Meli. Not Not too hot says Zion has not the game design has I think the average is like seven games seven points a game. He would likely replace Zayn at power forward with Ingram staying in the small force spot, and I. Think drew holiday, said it best. He said you know. As much as it hurts to say, we've done it before in terms of playing without Zayn.

Going, on in a start with three really good business news like news, the three business news it was the new news is three new launches, which is Yup. I'm dead excited about I. One I feel like this has been coming forever and ever and ever and people are excited is Jackie. Aina has announced her brand is coming out. And it's called forever mood. It's the forever moon. It's very exciting I. Feel like this is just writing. That's been talked about forever. She's been teasing it for whatever and it feels like it's finally finally coming. There's not much to say at the minute apart from that skull forever mood. There's no e in the forever. It's just F. O.. V are. Because at night stylized we like it. But as soon as we got more information on that, we will share it. Yep and second launch, which again excited, and they've just announced the first U. products in this range, which I did not see coming. And this is the Patrick Star one size launch? so He's been teasing again for awhile. He's been teasing on his youtube videos getting people to get viewers to send them little videos of them. Saying like bt is a one-size-fits-all turns out right because it is brand is called wants is. The way is this program to stop beauty. So this is just so. You're thinking of Patrick Tar beauty. And Onto Patrick. And you know it says on this podcast. Confuse those two people I am not how? How dare I say moment? Names of very similar. I'm Marilyn up by twenty ounces. Early sat in a restaurant with two that you would I know often jess and Her friend who worked for LEMAIRE and they were. Running an event with Patrick tar and they were talking about Oh. Yeah, as I fear on the plane, he should be here any minute and I was like no I've just seen him on instagram. He's like in Hawaii and they were like. On. A beauty Jeddah's like this is why I think we have to change my name to unprofessional. In front of me of to. Supposed to know a whole podcast audience, but like they know. I mean I'm not I'm great with faces, names and they've faces a very different, so you would have been dying. This is Patrick saw our because. And yet his brand, one size, and it's going to be in Sephora for the initial lawn. We'll know more about where it's going to be internationally as we go on on the first two brands that have been at first you products are either have been announced the go off makeup, dissolving missed and the go off makeup remover wipes. Okay so skin, cal skincare, but definitely make up remover. I think you have indicated this. Yeah they. Edged into skin care, but it was with an eye makeup removal rather than clothing, which is in an interesting extension of the cleansing category as the crossover between cleansing a makeup. Cleanser it's makeup remover. I'm on the fence about you need. Make remove I guess if you wearing a lot of makeup, you do it. These I always find those mists and the makeup remover sprays fascinating how they work I don't stand there. Witchcraft you spray on in your whole face melts off like Indiana. Jones like death becomes her. It's totally mad. The interest to see what else is coming. The packaging is gorgeous. It's all is bright metallic read. It reminds me a little bit of. So. Body sprays from the ninety S. Yes, I remember. Like a metallic red spotty red packaging. That looks really cool. We'll see welcome to come I did a bit of background research on this, and it's because I always brand. That's come from Sephora like Marc Jacobs yet. Betty itself actually. And it's not. It's coming from an incubation group called luxury brand partners, and a also look after Smith and colts. That's where it's myth and cult came from the nail Polish brand, and they were the money behind Becker before they sold Bekker's trae lording. Yes, so CEO was a form of Becca CEO. So. They've got a lot of. Beauty expertise in the gang. Interesting an interesting. Yeah it's going straight into Sephora and it's not a Sephora incubated. Brandon's competes brand. One come from luxury brand partners, so yes, since we get more news on one size, we'll let you know and then the other news, which is hot off the presses Hof. scold inch. Is Fantasy. Skin has just been announced. Again thinking about it and my head I was like wait. Not already accessible I'm like no, no, it doesn't. That's going to be exciting. July thirty first on skin dot com, even going on anti-beauty is is entirely its own thing. While I kind of like the savage frontier. The extensions like it's going to be like in separating. What's interesting? Really really interesting I'm curious as to see how that's going to go i. don't know what the product is going to be. It's literally just dropped as a logo an. Yes, so no more will no more and the last piece of Christmas. News we want to mention is. We had a big pre compensation. We had a meeting about the yes. About this one. I think it's an important piece of news share. Without necessarily getting into our personal thoughts and feelings on it, because we have and that's for another time. MORPHE- have ended their relationship with Jeffrey medics, which is huge news huge, yeah! I think that's going to be. Lots of people talking about your Fisher. Of. Discussion and debate as to what his involvement was with Morpheus. A company is whether or not he owned of more viewers investors like the. It was quite unclench. But what we do for sure is. He is a massive massive revenue driver form OFI, so it's a huge step for them to terminate that relationship and out that of his supply chain, so think is, it's jeopardy. Saw Cosmetics Company. Yet the company, so I mean interesting. We'll see what happens with morphine now where they go. Yeah, but just a business news
India, TikTok, and the U.S.
"I James Ben how I. I'm well. Don't want to say how well because. I took over with this week and posted some photos on my instagram stories and got a few response for folks saying that. I was rubbing it in their face I was able to sort of move freely around the country, and they were not able to do so so I stay on the download. It plays into your perpetual guilt because those awesome. Followed out with like an apology about how you'd want to read it, in which I enjoyed both I must confess a. Of. Couple were just joking about the photos, so I put the little bit I apologize for. People advocate that would so everyone wants mid Western guilt absolutely, so we were talking off line and you. Shifted a bit too a little less frequent, but maybe a little more sort of exploratory. You know there's so much that's been happening in the world, but topic has been top of mind for us. Obviously has been China and I know we were talking about Tiktok. That's been in the news this week, but one of the reasons been the news is what's been happening with China India and then we're kind of thought well, actually, there's lots of interesting in India sort of itself, and I thought it might be useful to sort of take. Take a step back today and not talk about whatever I wrote about this week was sort of picture. What's going on with these countries with these social networks? And how if that should sort of impact with the US should do, and I think just to sort of caveat upfront. They were both coming at this with a fair bit of uncertainty, both because we're talking about other countries that we are not citizens ought not part of those cultures, etc, but also it's not totally clear. What's the right thing to do either? Yeah, no I agree. I like this like I m most curious about. The News emerged about Tiktok what to do about it in the United States but I definitely feel this a story where the beginning Israeli mountainous region between China and India yeah, I mean there's been this conflict that is frankly gone for a very very long time between China and India and the disputed line of Control up in the mountains in the Himalayas and And you know there's been occasional flare ups over the decades by starting in May. There was sort of a new one where you know again. It's all sort of fuzzy fuzzy, not just because you know, there's no outside reporters up there and also you know both sides are not really talking about it that much, at least they weren't particularly back in May but. But. Also it's an area of the world. Where like the train is like shifting constantly right? There's earthquakes mudslides. There's avalanches and so when you talk about a unclear border, that border is unclear noxious, because it's never been sell diplomatically, because like the earth is like actually changing under your feet right and probably contributed to the flash point. It sounds like that was. Was a hell of a Malay- up at a whole bunch of Chinese and Indian troops just got into it, and it was not weapons. It sounded like it was hand to hand. Combat and I don't know that the Chinese casualties if that were any were reported, but I think I remember reading the twenty Indian soldiers that were killed as a result of this. Obviously nationalist fervor on both sides of that border, because this is disputed border because these flare ups have happened one of the very wise things that both sides have done is agreed a long time ago. That are soldiers there, but they're not armed. So that's why. When there was a dispute, it ended up being like a fistfight and rocks and shoving and those deaths as I think is understand it. We're actually people over quiz, which is a pretty crappy way to die is to say the least you obviously with weapons. It could have been much worse, but it's sort of that sort of weirdness of. Of the situation I think in this case it was China, sort of pushing in building on their side and pushing into the disputed area, and that India sort of responding to that, but again we're dealing it something. That's very fuzzy, but I think that magnified particularly sort of the nationalistic response on the Indian side one of the things this by far the most interesting in regards to the Indian government's response that just decided to do something that I naturally thought was just not a weapon. You could really reach full but I reached anyway, and that was to ban. All of the social media applications from. From China that were built by Chinese companies in that were made available in India and again kinda surprising. It's also one of those things where wow somebody just did that. And you realize that's now a weapon in people's hospitals. The irony of that is India will fall from the first country to do it as actually a trick that another country poke quite some time ago. Well, let's hold off the to get into that because I think the India market is actually really interesting for a few different reasons I mean you start sort of big picture? China has their own internet giants that have penetrated the majority. Majority of the company. The US has their Internet giants that penetrating WHO's part of the country, and both are looking for growth, and so you look for growth, and the area is sort of Southeast Asia in India are probably the two sort of next sort of markets that the focused on and the India point is particularly interesting. You remember a few years ago. Where facebook wanted to go into with facebook basics and the idea was. There's a lot of people that are in poverty in India and we're going to bring them Internet for the first time and was a huge sort of like grew haw. For for lack of a better term between facebook, and the Indian government and sort of people that were say that facebook was seeking to sort of like colonize the Internet. I think was how it was framed. Obviously, that's a very loaded sort of way to put it in India. Marc Andreessen wave waded into it and did not acquit himself. Well. We'll. And ultimately in the end, physically basics was ruled to be illegal

I didn't do it all right. Well then you know what the Dope Bet. A lot of a lot is going to be for you. I I've seen funding games from the outside. I noticed it all seriousness. Mark wins the last time you and you mentioned that you have your lady friend there in the room with you. When's the last time you with a group of people are just? The two of you have played a board game. We played cards. Count out include cards. Yes yeah we. We went to Ireland and we played cards for like nine hours. I think I forget what the game was. What was it called the game? You taught me crazy eights. United way that yes. We used to play that in sixth grade like crazy our sixth grade teacher Mr Day. Smoking cigarettes We would play crazy each with him. I never knew the game that we played it but what I find in my life because I don't have a history of playing organized games or sports with people's that I really need take it personally when I lose even crazy eights if I lose two hands in a row. I started getting resentment against her. I started to feel like I'm being taken advantage job. Even show me how to play this game properly because bullshit so by the third hand. That's the that that's the tone we're dealing with. I will tell you this that you would my white a lot in common. My winter is the same way with games and also our own. Mr Matt Belknap is not good when it comes to the game. Horrible my whole family found what helps is that instead of getting angry. If you just cry it actually relieves some of that. You become a better loser after about crying releases. Something doesn't impact it does but Elliott you're not a bad loser you take it in stride. I try pretty hard to take it in stride. I I will say though that deep down even when I appear to be a good loser I still don't like losing and I feel like the people are putting it upon me. Well how are you with the losing. I mean you've got to get used to it experience. I'm worried about losing those as Comedians. Like even when it's not a gain I can feel like I'm losing just by watching someone else's television special. Yes yeah I mean like? It's not really the way you're supposed to look at your friend's success but I see it as like well. There's this has been rigged against me and A and I and I'm losing this life but I've just been told you in five hours specials your ear right out of there right up there with the old meet Jimmy. This is winning mark this game. I feel I feel. I'm losing if I go to the mailbox and there's nothing there I feel like. What a bummer moment. I know that feeling feels really great. What feels like winning watching your clothes dry. You ever have that feeling where you're like. What and then you fold them. And it's sort of axe. Yeah those ads. Amazing it used to be great at laundromats enjoyed doing it laundromat. Now you'RE A. You're on television and motion pictures. You still do your own laundry. You're just say celebrities. You're just like us. I don't I don't know I don't even know what like do. You have an assistant. I've a guy that works art time. Sometimes what are you going to have those people do i?

That's category market is with US MARKS. Taking time away from his own podcast right now. He's got that. Wgn That's been very very popular. Jeff Dunham on today just today. Jeff Don bring the fellows come along with him now. I wouldn't let him bring the FELLAS. Don't you want to hear from Walter Baltin? Peanut have to say I think if I pressed him he probably could have managed it without the fellows. What do you think so? Do you think he needs the prop? He might need it. He's sort of like it. I Like I had to figure out how to approach him because after a lifetime of mocking him I felt kind of weird you know they pitched him and I was like all right. Let me talk but I remembered that when I was a kid. I love bitch cuisine and I. I had a doll when I was like seven. This kind of went back to that place to figure out what interested me about it. You know he makes his own. Dow's did you know back. I didn't believe it. He molds them out of clay and then does it three D print of the head it so he gets a sense of how it works with the controls and every he's like a real nerd for the ship an only child. It was actually kind of interesting interview. And I'm having built me a bucket of a puppet. It'd be if he happy mark he's a certain number comes out of the case. What serious question did you did? You approach Or did you broach the question of character his damn racists to that come on and what does he say about that? Well it's what you mean the terrorist character. Yeah because it is a racist character. Well he had. I think he had more racist characters I think he got pushback with a black character that he did like for awhile and like the basis of the idea where the the terrorists puppy chain was it was a reaction to nine eleven and the idea was that this was the ghost of terrorists that blew himself up and now regrets it because he loves America. That was the idea. Is that how it comes across? But but no age weird right. It's really kind of dark but he did it like he says it. The first time he did it he had to do it. New Jersey yet a super too close to people who dealt with that tragedy to see if it would connect was the idea was this is the ghost of Osama Bin and and he said worked. Great so I think way he tries to frame it is that he he still does that up. But he's racist. He taken the racism out of it in that he's the character out a little more. I mean that's how he addresses it but he still does that one but he doesn't do the raccoon because he decided that there was no way that can have the experience of a woman or a black person. Do those voices or to do those characters yet. A still does help. Pina on a stick. He still does to helping you on a second and I say what about that one and he goes. It's HALPEA ABSO ZAC question. But he claims that you know Mexican people like it. So what am I doing? All you can do is not your head and thank Christ. They didn't pull them out and do it. No no now. That's a cheer point from earlier. I still love good controller cuisine. I think it's terrific and Jeff is the best the best the best you'd really is. No that's what I said at the beginning of the shorts. I don't go out of my way to watch magic or eventual wisdom. When I see it you're always it's it's it's the area of showbusiness reactions like fucking doing that Z. Do that that's crazy. Yeah I love Ventriloquist them and impressions. Because I don't do them and so I never feel like to your point about watching friends specials of being jealous or angry when I watch ventriloquists impression. It's like I can't do that. All I can do now is sit here and enjoy it. No I get that I like that. I don't know about those data across. He's the greatest line about magicians. I don't even remember what the setup of the joke was. I just remember the punchline was yes that is my card can I go now? I don't drop a brick stopped. My foot metal shoes.

"Win that what what it's like how. How did you start to think like I'm going to do a podcast? Like what. How did PODCAST even enter? It was sort of desperation thing in a way. You know I had Getting through that second divorce was difficult because she really went after me and I was going broke and there was no end to it. And you're in. La Yes I mean la. You know. And I don't have a Gig I just got back. It was just doing stand up but you know I'm not a big name or nothing. Yeah and I've done plenty. I done a year to sorry I done a couple of years on radio and I enjoyed it and I think I was good at it but But once the divorce really started to hit and and the you know and her lawyers putting the screws to me because she wanted the house and there was no legal way for her to get it they were just trying to bankrupt me into giving tour and It was it was bad dude and what happened was somehow or another after air collapsed. And I've been fired. You know before you know a couple of times from America and yes somebody else got in their new CEO and there was some faction of the old guard there and they wanted to do a thing with me and do a streaming show and streaming wasn't really a thing yet and I was like well. I'll do it if you pay me. You know what I used to get there but more importantly if you give me enough money up front to pay this woman off so I can stop this thing. I'll do it so they gave me enough money up front to give to my ex wife and stop the hemorrhaging and finalized the divorce. Wow and so I went back to New York and I did a streaming show and I was so emotionally shattered and fucked up. I had to take the GIG to get out of the divorce process because I was going broke and I was gonNA lose everything so but I was not any motionless condition to do show daily show streaming show. Yeah so I had them pull in Sam Cedar which the guy who was producing. The show did not want to do because he didn't trust. Sammy didn't like Salmon. You know he didn't really want to do a strictly political show and Sam was GonNa make it that way but I was like. I don't give a fuck. I can't cover politics I. I don't know how funny I can be AB. I didn't tell him this and I pulled him. Brendan McDonald's who used to be a producer on my original show. Who's at that point. It's serious producing I think Rosie O'Donnell show and on sort of a career track managerial in production. Wise it's serious and I got him enough money to make it worthwhile and we pulled him in because I trusted him and we did this streaming show for year that nobody watched because it wasn't a thing yet was was daily life and you know in the writing was on the wall. We did everything we could to make it. Great and we were doing things. We're doing external things. We're making short films. We've put a lot into that. Yeah and we did everything we could and it was funny and it was weird and it was. You know it's just it was. I don't want to stay ahead of its time. But streaming was inaccessible right. It just wasn't it was the what year was that. I guess seven or eight you know and it just wasn't the technology wasn't there so they fire us but they don't kick us out of the building and I'm talking to Brendan and I see that people don't kick building. What does that mean? Look Dude when you do radio like you know they want you away from the Mikes so always hear those stories. It's like I got done with my show. And they said you know. Pack Your Shit. Yeah yeah I mean that's usually the way it goes right right. We were still under contract for a month. Nadim Baba offices there I told Brennan. I'm like you know Corollas doing this thing. You know part of doing it. You know Jimmy door was doing. I saw a few con. Kevin Smith not a lot of people out. There were people doing. I think Benson might have been added and my quick look. I'm good on these mics. Kazani way we can figure this shit out Ya. Can we do a podcast? Whatever the FUCK DAT is. And he's like look I'll look into it. Yeah and he reached out to You know apple and they're like well we we're just a you know we're we're a template we're not a server right we'll put you know we want people who know what they're doing to do these things because you know we're trying to pull people into our technology. Yeah it was. It was always just an advertisement for pods. I for Apple. But they were willing to help promote and shit so you know he brandon. Figured it out you know? He figured out how to apple was supportive. And you know and we started. We started at Air America after hours. We knew the night tech so we would go back. We had our security cards and you know we committed to it just all we committed to was a new show every Monday and Thursday. We didn't commit to a format we got in there. D. Brendan got on the board and You know we started bringing guests up the freight elevator doing phone and having segments and we just knew that W T F would be an umbrella idea for a lot of different segments And that's the way we did it for like the first six to ten episodes was kind of like at night at Air America under the radar kind of stealing studio time. That's right that's right and then you know eventually I was like. How do we do this at home? How am I going to do this so I gotTA MOVE BACK TO LA? I can't stay here forever and Because I had house here and You know and I talked to Jesse Thorn and you know who who I knew did A sort of a podcast was sappy equipment. He told me what Mike St us. Yeah I set up in my garage with functioning. Garages just a bunch of crap in there. I remember right. Yeah you were there but I think by the time you came I might did. I have Mike booms yet. I don't even know but when you did you did but initially I was. I had those dumb little kind of like you said on tape. Those stands with these. Sm Seven Mike. Right but I was putting these mice which are designed for booms on sure sure. Yeah Yeah and and I was going at it and you're running it right into a Mac book through that dumb little mixer so that was really the birth of it and it was sort of desperation and and having something to do there was no way to make money at it. Yeah so you know there. Was we all kind of figured that out in our own time together. All the podcasters. Why do you create a a a membership thing where they have to pay to get the thing and we that was you would? How do you build an audience? So we really kind of at the beginning were offering. We created a site where people could donate in get swag like NPR if you gave us a one time donation of ten bucks. We'd send you a stickers t shirt you could get was like five or ten you know but we we what. We're trying to get people to do monthly if you would donate five or ten dollars or twenty dollars monthly. We a one time donation of two fifty. Yeah send you a bunch of Shit but a lot of people signed up and a lot of people came over from Amer Air America. Even though I wasn't doing politics anymore we had enough people you know. Sign up for the month. We'd nut thing you know. I had a whole house full of the envelopes of swag to mail out was crazy. Run into the valley to get t shirts. I was having some punk girl. Make you know it was and you're doing it yourself. Your own shipping department yamen. Yeah yeah it was crazy and I had a roommate at my house because I wasn't making enough money and she had was staying at the house when I was in New York. Still then she. I'd met her in New York and she was living with me for a while. And then I had my friend dawn. You know move in with me like it was. It was all crazy after the divorce. And yes so that was the beginning of it but we got enough people to sign up to where we're making a little money monthly. Yeah do you know what I mean? Books get now getting out from under. Yeah you know and I saved a little money because of a job you know but but that's how it started and it took time to you for all of us to evolve away of making money. We were doing the Adam and Eve ads. You know an audible. There is only a few Claustrophobia some kind end coffees. They they had come on during the streaming show. They were the only sponsor we had on our streaming show and we did for coffee. They send US COFFEE. You know just coffee. Dot Co op. Who I still they. Still Send me coffee and We kept them on. But then you know the business evolves you know You know forms came terrestrial advertisers from radio weeks to deal with their metal men. terrestrial advertisers. We deal with them directly deal with a- mid role in your Wolf Network. I it just grew into this thing where everybody has a podcast now. But what's interesting is sort of the adversity. That many of us kind of you know came through to figure out how to make this job er how to make it Something that you know you could. You could make money at as the medium grew we all grew and there was this sort of camaraderie around it. Too because many of us had to confront the TR- The the patent troll which was that whole chapter of podcast in which a lot of people don't know about was was crazy and scary in a lot of people really didn't know how dire it was And a lot of people came together. What what is what is it that you're talking about you know. It was basically a patent. Trolling is you know. There are inventors or people that buy patents tried to sort of backload them into current technology and claim that they own the patent on it and then either get paid out by the technology or whoever owns it or or create a licensing situation in a guy had showed up saying that he had invented podcasting with some sort of sort of cassette timing machine that was created in the eighties and that sort of backloaded the patent to fit you know the foundation of what podcasting which is basically delivering a podcast in a timely fashion through a publishing Kind of a relatively confusing but the truth was is that the way these patent trolls work is a they fucking lean. They they sue you and they went after Corolla and a few other podcasts. And all the patent trolls work out of they set up a a phony front business of their corporation or whatever in Texas and they have a judiciary There that sensitive and and on the DOLE FOR PATENT. Yeah it was a whole sort of infrastructure too. But the idea was he was gonNA come after podcasters and demand money for infringing on his patent. Yeah and or else. Create a licensing situation where we would all have to give that guy in. Yeah you know anybody who did a PA. I if the patent was proven to be valid and no one quite understood you know what the fuck was going on and all of us got educated around. You Know Sundays we. There were a handful of us that were sent letters. Saying look you always money licensing money for using our and we were like what is this garbage right and Cedar is like. This is real man. This is real and I'm like what do you mean it's real? It's real. They can sue us all and he can fucking put us out of business so the broader podcasting community was like. Yeah you know whatever but you know we had this weird meeting at Corollas House me and someone from Kevin. Smith's operation from J. Moore's operation. We're like how can address this because Kevin was actually going to court of really..
"marc m" Discussed on The Three Questions with Andy Richter
"Hey everybody questions with Andy Richter I'm talking to Marc Maron. I don't know when they're going to start this thing. But we've started do you have. We've started but oh so there's that like you have a theme. Yeah but just dropped it in at the beginning I do it. So that's the theme is three questions. Well Yeah I mean. That's that's the gist of the is three questions. Which are Where do you come from where you're going? And what have you learned? And why are you here? Yeah what's your fucking deal. Why are you the way you are? The Gimmick of this thing is just really just a reason to have a conversation. I mean it's it's not dissimilar to your podcast which is like an interview about like you know what you're lucky you feel. It's good to see you too. We'd know where for a gazillion years. It's crazy really when you think about you know sometimes I I get thrown a clip on twitter of me on Konia like ninety ninety four ninety five. Yep and it's crazy up yet that were children and were sitting there urine sue. No No. I haven't ended his soon. Idaho yeah and I don't feel like I mean. Obviously something's changed. Don't feel any different except for one. Then I look at those things and I think like Oh yeah I I was twelve years old and I don't even really know how to be on television. You know not that I you know well anyway Let's start at the beginning your beginning your you were born in the east coast right somewhere. Yes I was born in Jersey City New Jersey. I do not have any recollection of the day You know I assume I was crying bloody. Ac I was a Syrian because That was what I was told to things by my mother so searing preferable and breastfeeding was not good for me not good song. They just didn't do it. It was not a popular thing the good for her. I don't know she you know she She recently said to me Andy. A few years back after years of trying to figure out what was wrong with me Just casually As I was Prepping Thanksgiving dish. My mother just said you know mark when you were a baby. I I didn't really know how to love you and I'm like wow okay. Well that That solves it then. I'm fixed so that was there. We had him. There's some honesty between a parent and a child did. Is it necessary dude? But as they get older they don't know that anymore there's the statute of limitations run. Yeah got my dad going. I remember MOM's friend and I'm like the irony here about it. So you mean like like member. Mom's friend I nailed. Mom's friend that kind of thing now. Yeah that kind of stuff and I'm sorta like you know. Keep that to yourself. They're not together anymore but still it's like I talked to her and I don't need to use that secret. My other one time told me and my father who is out and gay and that was the reason that they split up once told me about his in my mother's frequent simultaneous orgasms. Oh this was. This was not late onset. This was like when I was seventeen. I don't I don't need to know that. I mean that's great. You're you're struggling rat struggling with understanding orgasm. Now thanks Dad Yeah. They they do that. There's too much information happenings to get older. Yes so Jersey born there and then I lived there for the first six or so years of my life in Pompton Lake or Wayne New Jersey Wayne and my grandmother was in Pompton lakes. My grandparents all the families from. That's where everybody was from yet. They yet we go from Pretty MUCH RUSSIA TO JERSEY. And then you know Galizia in the Ukraine which I learned from doing the show Finding your roots go. Yeah I did. I did yeah. They were very excited. Because they somehow were able to track my paternal Line further back than they than than they've ever gotten with the Eastern European and Mike. Well Great Yeah so. There's some a sort of an excessive. Self awareness has been a hallmark of your family for many many years. Apparently they were Taylor's so they needed people to know. I know it's like I think the big problem is is like you know which group of Antisemitic Monsters got rid of the records. And the people what happens but anyways yes and then. My Dad enlisted or was drafted. I'm not clear into the air force. Where he he was a doctor so he did his his internship at Metropolitan Hospital in New York. And I think he did his residency through the air force. He entered the Air Force as a major and we moved to Alaska. Now did he he. He was drafted into the air. Force says the doctor was his during Vietnam. Or something yeah. I don't know how it happened. I don't think he was drafted but because he was in you know it was. This was sixty nine. I don't know why he didn't go to Vietnam. But he was stationed in Anchorage Alaska and And he was still. I guess it was because he wasn't a doctor yet. I believe but we were there for two years and I do remember. I've talked about it before but I won't say that on your podcast because I hate when people say my podcast because I just think like you know my producer just gonNa cut out Not that you've talked not that what you're about to say but we will we hear just don't care but But NO I. We used to fly back east to visit our family. You know my my my grandparents. Aunts and uncles and whatnot and my dad used to be able to hop onto. I could cargo plane right Through the so you. Could you know how you can just sorta jump on the plane but it was not a passenger plane and I remember there was? It's very significant. Two things happened. There was we flew back to Jersey with caskets right that came through Alaska summaries and then they were heading to the east coast from Land Nam and so that happened and I remember a few other members along with that on that plane. You know I I knew. They were boxes of bodies but it was also. We were all given a boxed lunch and it was the first time I had. V8's US and and that that pilot let me in the cockpit. So I was able to see all this stuff in the cockpit and stuff so kind of dark kind of cool. Yeah but So yes we were in Alaska for two years which I remember vaguely but sort of SOC- remember that Do you remember wicked winters? There just remember. It was weird because Anchorage we lived off base but it was a small house when I remember the neighbor. Was this woman esther who I thought was like a hundred years old and she smoked and she was had all kinds of mystical jewelry and things in she gave us silver dollars and would talk to us and she was married to a An inuit guy a man who was very quiet and more most we at one piece outfit a lot and I remember. We were near the East like a jumpsuit. Or like some sort of that. Yeah yeah he didn't talk much indepth. She was a character but I remember. We lived near an inlet. So this was nineteen sixty nine through seventy one and they'd had that massive earthquake there in sixty three right so there was still just like you know just all this rubble that we would walk out like you know half a mile towards where the water was. It was just like houses and breaks all kinds of shit to go through and So that was kind. Wow and that was where I experienced the first sort of earthquake. Oh wow a little bit. That tremor yeah. I just remember that we were told for some reason. My Dad said we need to stand in the doorway which I think is still a thing to do but never makes me my impulse when the earth is shaking.
"marc m" Discussed on The Frame
"Welcome back to the frame. I'm John Horn Josh. Thomas is an Australian comedian and actor who lives in La. His new comedy series. Everything's GonNa be okay. Aired on free form formerly Disney family and available now on Hulu. The premise doesn't initially sound all that. Funny Thomas Plays a young man who has to look after his two half sisters when their father dies from cancer his character knows he's not exactly dad material but he's going to try his best. We reach Thomas like almost all the reason guests on the frame these days at his home. I in my house in L. A. I'm alone. It's me and my dog John. You guys have the same name. Which is wonderful. He's thrilled. He loves the FANS Amick. Pandemics of big wins Dogs I think he might vulcanized it to be honest. That's my dishwasher. This discussion going up. Can you pause your dishwasher? Sounds like it's so proud of itself you know it doesn't do it goes for so long. It's a bit over the top and to be honest. This week is like the first time I've had the noise annoyed. You made that noise. But I'm up here vending for myself and it. Turns OUT MAY DISHWASHER? It's got a lot more personality than I realised. Now my second best friend. I got my dog. I GONNA dishwasher. That's my life now. I WanNa talk a little bit about how you're dealing with all this in a sec. But I WANNA ask you first about your new show. Everything's GonNa be okay. I WANNA play a scene from the series. This is where your character. Nicholas has just been told by his father that he is terminally ill. And your love interest. Alex who's played by Arrives the father. I should say Darren is played by Christopher. May If you're in love with the boy I wanna meet them before you secret. Australian prints contracted you now that you're rich. Do you say no and okay? It's to handle service. Yeah I'm Nicholas's dad there and I feel embarrassed nonsense already knew. My son does anal sex. Probably terribly ice tea okay. Here's the checklist patriotic cancer. Dying Dead Gay Relationship Kissing Anal sex autism kids drinking and taking someone else's prescription meds and all this from platform owned by The Walt Disney Company. Right I don't know how I tricked them. Man Out or not only do that. Yeah there's a two episode ach about consent to episodes. That's a lot I mean for me. That's like what I'm interested in making. So I I like shows that explore real life Issues trade deal within liquor railway. If I'm gonNA someone's going to buy a show of me was going to be right and they wanted to buy show of me and so this is it Yeah this will find engaging and there's just so much TV now like there's so many stories being told. I think there's space for a show like this. That really goes that this is what I find interesting. We're talking with Josh. Thomas the Creator and star of everything's GonNa be okay on a play another clip. This is where your character's younger sister. Matilda is delivering a eulogy at Your father's funeral. The actress is Kayla Cromer. I wasn't born with an inbuilt. Understanding of many things near a typical people take for granted. Oh I have autism surprise again I had to rely on my dad who interpret the world to teach me how to do every little thing so I carry him with me every day every time I tie my shoe laces or cross the road without dying or make eye contact with anybody or demonstrate a reasonable amount of self esteem that is thanks to him going above and beyond their two really important things in this scene. One is your decision to have a character who is on the autism spectrum and equally critical to cast an actor who herself is on the spectrum. I guess that's kind of a two part question about writing the character and casting the character. How did that come together? As really surprised about how little I knew understood about autism and how Little Mo friends you understood about it and I got really interested in and everything like people with like a different view and I was really into it and I wanted to do it. Stars autistic casting goes. I always think as much as you can get. An activist is close to the PERFORMA. That better but it was never been done. I don't think there's ever been a lead cost number that statistic we saw you know hundreds of autistic girls at the beginning. We saw like four or five. Typical goals is like just to see and just startling. And how much data the autistic girls wide? Just probably lots of reasons. I think Cam I'll let them know. Typical people playing until like stereotypes which aren't true and one very interesting thought it'd be like a challenging costing process but actually there were so many good options one of the parents of someone who ended up costing play. Dreyer. Lillian Mama's a yeah Williams a really great active because autistic kids especially girls have to learn how to mimic behavior and that kind of like acting everyday to fit into this wall. That isn't designed for them. Which is like a really interesting idea. So you know at the beginning. We wanted to do it because it's the right thing to do. We hope that we will be better I am. We went to the audition process and it was like they're on such a different level of quality and performance to the the other gals. Who could you know they were good actors girls but then pretending to be autistic is kind of like now that? I've done it. I look at like and I just think it's very weird actually to watch your typical people pretend to not be we now know that thanks to the pandemic you have a new and more meaningful relationship with your dishwasher and your dog. What does that mean in terms of a second season for the show up doing stand up? Like how are you going crazy? How you remaining engaged while you're still being creative person. Yeah I mean I don't know I don't know it's early days. I don't know what's going to happen over at Disney. I'm like at home at the moment. I'm like walking on cleaning the house out and that's been something and I've got some pitches at. Its but doing them. We had the mole book in. And we're doing them Zoom Conference saying. But everyone's like not sure if that buying things so uncertain. I don't feel like my life is a real sub story. At the moment I feel more worried about a lot of other people. I'm just trying to enjoy being home with my dog and waiting to see it's all you can really do and working on series. Ox and I just had a big conversation studio about what season two would look like. We're carrying on as if the wild is normal and making sure that we have ideas and plans for when things go back to normal whatever then you normal will look like but that's all you can really do. Josh. Thomas is the Creator and star of. Everything's GonNa be Okay Josh. Thanks so much for coming on the show. Hey thanks for having me.

"marc m" Discussed on Bertcast's Podcast
"I am unlocking my self tomorrow and I am going to bed right after this and I'm charging my whoop currently and I will let you know what my reading is on instagram tomorrow. So but getting back to Ted Dino and is at the question is that yeah. I plan like I bought a guitar on the road this last time. Yeah and like you know we just we. When we're in the car you know will listen to certain music. We liked in music. He knows a lot more about music. And about instruments and shit and I like that shit so it's always a a good conversation around that stuff. Yeah you know. I like stuff that he doesn't know about In ill explain shit to me because like he's you know I get I'm crazy compulsive guy but he knows everything about Motorcycles cars watches guitars amps jeans boots in his life by the way those are all really cool things to know about right but no one knows a Mike Him and and he you. I keep knows this shit because he used to be into it. And you don't think about Dean outside of being a great comic is that like he's always hustling sheet. Rock t shirts. He's Big Rock t-shirt Guy Right now. He's been to every concert in the world. Yeah and he used to like by Itsel Guitars and amps. So he knows all that shit knee played too so we always have pretty good time. I ended up buying you know guitars and jackets and stuff with him. What about would you be read? Write a motorcycle. No I My Dad was orthopedic surgeon when I was a kid before he was a broke ass. Sad Man But they did that thing where he like. You WanNa ride a motorcycle. Come with me in the hospital. I want to show you a guy that You know so. He brought me a he was a scared straight situation. My Dad did that with lawsuits really. Doberman that's good looking dog. Take literally take a look at this picture. They'RE GONNA buy more soon them and I was like far My Dad was really think fireworks were good idea. Take a look at this lawsuit. And you're like Jesus. Oh Yeah my dad. My Dad operates out of out of fear. I had a mini bike. We're really when your kid? Yeah in New Mexico E. N. He and he also he had a motorcycle but it was only for dirt like a little Suzuki Ninety. Seems like it would be fun. Yeah I was never that I was always willing nervous about it. I could ride the mini bike around. But he was they were you know he he had these things. Anyone do much with them. I'm not that big of a daredevil. You know what I mean so when you play the guitar I play the guitar but I feel like maybe I'm lost because when you play guitar notice that I while you're good but like when you sit down to play the guitar do do you write your own music. Do you play other songs. That you like plan provides US I. I wish I'd done more of that. Like the guys who play by learning other people's leads and so that's how. I learned how to play by. I'd learned a song from someone else and I can only play other songs. I couldn't do my own thing now. See Like I learned the Scales and then I learned the riffs so I can play along leads and stuff but I'm not great at like knowing chords is I need to do that more really but I just jam like you know I can. Yeah Basic Shit. Basic rock basic country some stones. She I can definitely get the hang of it but I was always just plain leads and lakes and learning leads wakes Jimmy Gavino when I do cone and he showed me new lakes and then eventually he lets me play with them. Sometimes I think he played one. I was on on all was. I mean when Dean. We're on holidays right and he left. That was the one time he liked me. But but if he's got a combo thing out in the valley he'll let me come sit in for a couple of songs. Yeah well that's great I played with slash at a thing. That was Pretty Wild. I drank was slash. Oh Yeah Yeah. And he's an interesting guy. You just see which is more creative. Do you think I don't know I don't know I have a really great slash story so I know I other than I play guitar with him. I have a great slash story. That involves Patrice O'Neal grow With What's it called Cerebral Palsy? Yeah Yeah I. I always feel like if I if told that. Icm I'm sure not worth it by the way in today's culture a tad bit cruel. Well Yeah so you know. Patrice story ever comes out culture where you can defend. Shell that story. Yeah it's one of the ones where I put my book and I like I'll leave it there So back to your hour. I WanNa talk to you about on one SEC. Sorry Buddy I guess I need to record something. winning need record. Dow. No must've fucked something up not going to be home. I mean I it should be. I'll get you out of your within thirty. I know your your. You don't like to go much over an hour so I'll keep you and and what do you do? You usually do anywhere from like anywhere from an hour two hours. I don't want to let down like I feel like I kind of wonder about this like lately. I've been wondering because just like you said I have not we're talking about W Jeff I keep coming about like you said like what kind of do damage and I think sometimes misunderstood definitely misunderstood because like. I don't know how people categorize me but like you know I know. Look I know your audience when you sell out like I go down to Florida in. I was at the hard rock in Orlando and I saw like nine hundred nine thousand nine hundred thousand tickets play seats. What throw twelve fourteen? You're doing to show to show. Is there and I think to myself. Well certainly birds can have more people down here than I am regular right and I'm not but in general I know like I'm not drawn. We don't have a lot of crossover 'cause we there's a sense that there's a sense that we're different type of guy. I can imagine that but I would imagine I would imagine a lot of my fans listening to W T F we would not go see live based on what they're tasting standup. Yeah Brian exactly and the same with Joe. Joe's got his dudes and I'm not one of those dudes but then I realized what kind of what kind of dude am I really. But I'm not like I'm not some pers. No you know what I mean is that I am not like I'm I'm the real deal. You're fantastic. Yeah so you know I. It's it's fine with me but I don't really quite understand like this special and even my last special. I understand like e you know Joe maybe his crew politically there might be some differences or or or or they have a problem with me philosophically or maybe. I don't like I condescend a bit too Like UFC and shit. And I don't know about that stuff and I can't talk sports in you know I don't WanNa fucking do who's Gen-x but I have you know but I don't always know we're the you know why everyone's got these separate camps but I feel like they are. I mean you've got Joe guys but I don. I don't know I have a few Joe guys. But they're not they're more like guys like those in a Joe. Sometimes I think I think job is much broader a spectrum clearly and I think I think you and Joe have a lot more in common than not for instance Joe Doesn't know much about sports. He knows about you. See that's it you can't you can't talk to him about basketball. I would. I would argue. Joe Couldn't name one professional basketball player would actually probably put money on here because you'll say stuff to him like. I remember one time I was like war. Sap is a is a friend He's in the pocket he's like he's like one of the more famous football players and worked for. Nfl networker ESPN at the time. But but I do. I would agree that you are misunderstood. And I think that goes to like. I wonder where that goes to. Because you're insightful. Thoughtful the people you have on your interviews are fucking amazing mostly. I think most of it comes from this idea of where I am politically and I were more similar than than apart. No for sure. I don't. I don't know who it is or what had happened. But it's usually right winger guys that that that that that ruined the party for people who want to like me from that ilk of person. It's interesting you know those. It's funny I went on a pod. I wanted a podcast with a guy. I wish I knew his name. Very insightful dude. And he was like a it was a New York and it was out of like NPR or something like that. Yeah and On a campus in Brooklyn and he was like Your like all right and I was like no. It's what I and I was like. What the fuck is like? Will you watch these? These fight videos online of the ANTIFA verse all right and I went. Oh Yeah of course. Yeah I can. I use your cheering for the guys and I was like well. No cheering for the guy. And then I'm sitting there going. What am I representing? And then I kind of this is why we stopped doing this one. Podcast I had called open tabs because I was like we home. I representing my. I didn't even know how as representing myself people people I knew how people were perceiving it receiving it that I was all right and then I came out saying I'm definitely not all right then. The outright attacked me and came after me and I was like yeah and there was a point. Where at one point my podcast? All I re read the comments were state your fucking politics and I was like. Oh I'm done with this. We stopped doing that. Podcast altogether because like your your comedian. I'm a comedian by the way police in the more liberal people you'll ever meet this industry of course but just based on the fact of where I live who I interact with see the world and associated with that see. That's the fucking thing once once it gets out there. You have no control over how you're going to be used. No not at all and how you're going to be representing like wanted. Joe's freaks did some stupid documentary about the the fail. You how I you know how this like. One of those weird documentaries about how you know. I lost all my listeners because I started talking about Joe. I know almost know exactly who this did two days. He does documentaries like Now the tail of the Worm Jim Norton said and it's just an Anti Jim. Anti Jim is just a huge anti certain. I'll probably get one but like a huge anti Jim campaign. Yeah but that's how propaganda works now. Whatever his intentions are however Y- you know. The current political climate has sort of activated these miserable angry fuckers who were alone in their homes and you know generally pissed off about their lot in life but are incredibly adept at technology read. Ably you know like you know. They have a lot of power to take you and do whatever they want to with. You know what you put out in the world and it's a little scary you know in some of them are right winger and some of them they just like starting. Chit but a lot of them have been turned out by the right wing so and I don't know how many of them have infiltrated. You're the JOE base or your base or anyone who knows but I just I also I have no real like I know. I just know that I'm not a jock but yeah but here's what's crazy is i. Listen to your podcast. Yeah all of them. Sure you're not by any stretch of the means. Are you political and your podcast? You're now you're interview a little nervous about authoritarianism happening. Yeah and you'll say trump. You'll say intelligent thing. Yeah but you're not. You're not rolling into a fucking. I'm not doing commentary but I definitely am anti-trump yet. So like for me. I I don't have any problem with that because I believe that I've been doing a bit about it. You know it actually my special where it's just sort of like. I'd basically say that you know he's really one of the shittiest people that's ever done anything and and I believe all even people who like him know that they know that in their heart that he's Shitty but they're Kinda shitty and they're excited about being able to be proud to be shitty so but but but I have this witness test. Abou you don't like the way to tell is like let's say trump is who he is but we no one knows who he is. He's got a different job and he's working at a used car. Okay and you're on though out and you're looking at cars you will walk in. Throughout looking at the prices on the windshield and out of the trailer with a sales guy is out walks trump. Any human being when they looked at him would have the same experience which would be like..

That was the first place I released him then released on instagram. Because that's where I feel like most people find me and then are released him on twitter I don't know if they're still tickets. We are going to be adding alive. Podcast event to this I am not announcing. Who's GONNA be on the show simply because I don't want to use any of my friends names to sell tickets I don't want them to feel like I'm leveraging them to do put on the show But suffice to say my friends will be on the show the live. Podcasts are going to be fucking phenomenal. And I say this but bill burr and I are doing a live podcast together. First Time ever we will be doing a live. Podcast in the or At the comedy store Saint Patrick's Day. I'm certain it will be drunk Bill will be sober and I'm certain. Ob an hour of bill. Busting my balls and and it'll be fucking hilarious. So but it's fifteen comics all the greatest comics in the world and my opinion It was it was people I wanted to work with and just reached out and I don't think other than like some people who are I'd like David Spade had a TV show commitment and he was like. I wish I'd come. We start we start shooting it. We get to the offset nine though. I can't make it but other than that. You know it's everyone. I'd want to be with to work. Yeah yeah no shit. I should tell him David. It's causing like the show doesn't go on without him But Yeah so concept. Work go to go to my instagram. Go to my twitter or go to the comedy store and buy your tickets. It is next. Tuesday Saint Paddy's Day the same day my special. Hey big boy drops on Netflix. I'm super proud of this special. I hope you enjoy the special. The reason I'm tired is doing everything in my power to promote this special and so I am heading off the dynasty typewriter to do a live dollop right now and yeah. That's it check out my wife's body if you can looks phenomenal as early. Nice thanks bay. Of course you'll hear me trash and her body on Tom's garage sales. Oh yeah trashed my body but we have notes no. We don't don't try to your body so my body. No we have notes on your. What are the notes on my body notes on your body? The fucking amazing. You look. She'd really does. She sound like thirteen. Fourteen pounds. Thirteen Brown's I'm up ten. That's okay you found ten in my thirteen so Check out on your mom's house you trashy but it's a fucking good episode. That was a really fun episode. Your Mom's house was Yeah I love doing that show I you know so funny. Forget how long you know these people in this business you feel like you forget. We have friends with them a long time. Yeah Long Long Time. I mean like like thirteen years like no more than I've known Tom. Within thirty evening. Tom But we four have been friends. Isla was probably a year and a half old. Maybe so twelve years something like that. She's today's episode is with one of the Oggi's and the game now. Yeah Marc Maron is is podcast royalty. Yeah he started his podcast. Wpf when did he start that? I want to say probably I. We talk about that a little bit. We talked about the early episodes. I obviously I'm a fan of his podcasts. I've been a fan. Has podcast him in Joe's podcasts. Were like my to go to You know and And they're very different podcast. But they're very both equally awesome podcasts. It's interesting mark. Said something on this. Podcast is kind of changed the way I looked at things a little bit. I know I'M GONNA misquoted. You should just hear him say it. But it's about the difference that people have when they go to a show mind versus. Joe Is and the way people leave show his. I watched Mark Special. It's not heavy. It's just mark it's like mark is I watched. A special is fucking awesome mark. Special is fucking awesome. But here's what's crazy. Of course it is. He is one of the best writers in the game without a does one of the best thinkers in the game and he's one of the best orders in the like the way he handles the stage the way he takes apart especial is so different than how I do it that I was almost glad I was really relieved. I hadn't seen has special before I did mine because I be second guessing everything I did in mind. Yeah he is so fucking talented. Stand up comedy. Yeah that you go thank God guy like this. Thank God we have a guy like this he is. I know I don't think he's Maybe this didn't. But he is the extension of what where Kennison and Hicks would've gone. Yeah yeah him and stanhope guys like that or so fucking important. Look I'm not downplaying. Guys like me. Rip Their Shirts Off Until Fund party stories and show them their family. And and it's not I don't I don't i. Don't try to get maybe as heavy as as Marker Stanhope. We all serve a different purpose. Yes Stephen King and David Sedaris really good. But they serve any purpose. His special is on the front page and Netflix right now. Do you know what that means? Everybody means a lot of people are fucking watching it. It's not on the front page. Is Disappearing End Times fun? Marc Maron streaming. Right now on Netflix. If you haven't heard of W Jeff I don't know I I've been doing this podcast thing wrong. Wto is one of the best podcasts out.

"The name enigma was inspired by this man. Alan Turing who developed a machine in World War Two to break codes. Can you tell us more about that. Yeah well the Actually the genealogy of Iniguez it is a bit more complicated. We tried to play down too much of the World War Two associations because the problem there was the the actual enigma machine was the machine that the Nazis hard to sort of in code everything anything and of course. Of course Alan Turing was responsible for breaking the cipher of the `nigma machine which was very instrumental in the allies. Victory in World War. Two and of course Alan turning is a sort of father figure within modern computing as well you know and also and we sort of think of the the other meaning of enigma sort of this riddler problem that you have to sort of bring your own ingenuity to to unravel and so we sort of think that those sorts of thematics when dealing trying to deal with all of the public data in the world certainly resonate as well and it's `Nigma Dot. Io for people who are searching to find a `nigma online and Dot Io. Can you talk about. Yeah absolutely got very interesting so I think technically technically dot. Io is a country level dooming That's tied to something called the Indian territory I believe at British Indian over comedian. Yeah so it's certainly it's a British possession. I think it's basically just an airbase in the middle of the Pacific of course that's sort of a bit of its genealogy but the reason that we chose dot. Io Is of course dot com domains are almost at this point totally saturated and over the last several years. There's been a lot of interesting data companies that have been popping up. Open the door ISO top level domain space. So we like to call it. The Soho of the Internet. It's fun up and coming Top level domain space. He's speaking of Soho You live in little Italy and how come you chose that Abraham New York City. It's sort of an intersection with a very A very large chinatown off to the east. And then you could say sort of more of the sort of chic and fashionable Soho to the north. And it's for me a very exciting place to be because it has these sorts of residences of what New York City was like twenty thirty forty years ago and of course the history of and much deeper than that you enjoy reading. What are you reading? Now I'm reading Currently I'm reading tump Thomas Pinch the bleeding edge one of the things that's been most vodka tive to me About the books so far is the way that pension is able to capture In a way that feels very familiar and lively. The sort of what New York City felt like in nineteen eighteen ninety eight or nine thousand nine thousand nine hundred the city that was just on the sort of tipping point into Sort of into a kind of gentrification that we're now we're now seeing is there any relevance Vince to to your work at all or personally entering the look not not yet. It's just it's something that But you know I'm I'm a very avid reader. Simul always tried to have a novel. Oh close at hand like Philip Roth American pastoral. He focuses so much on glove making or leather leather manufacturing. Do you ever feel like well. You Know He. He must have done a lot of research in that if he only used a `Nigma to get data if authors get data on things. They're researching I don't know how have you thought about the the applicability of an egg and doing that type of you know even fiction recent short. I think it's I think it's actually very interesting tension and what I something there I find actually very interesting. His trying to bring into conversation. The more Sort of narrative or aesthetic or sort of open ended Articulations of things and then sort of the raw data behind them innocence. It's it is a bit of a stretch but there's a wonderful data set It's one of my my all time. Favorites put out by the New York. Public Library was bequeathed to Damn sometime in the twentieth century. And it's I think forty or fifty thousand different menus from the last Sort of hundred or hundred and fifty years was sort of from this woman. I believe who just collected these things. And it's sort of from a cosmopolitan New York and with the New York. Public Library did is. They went out and sort of led an initiative to get a lot of these menus digitize. So the one hand you can go and pick up or find a menu from one thousand nine hundred fifty two at some Little Deli on Eighth Avenue and you can see you know oh great eggs and ham five cents or whatever it might have been but you can also then start to sort of obstruct from that and you can look broader trends over you know what dishes are becoming more popular popular which ones are becoming less popular. How is the cost of food changing over time and these Lenny's themselves are very aesthetically. Beautiful I mean. There's there's such a range of these things and so I think there's is a big space to sort of move back and forth between the very abstract and sort of American the the more artisanal individual menu like. Did you eat today speaking of Menus. And it's been a it's it's been a delight day I I was able to grab half of APR Promo J. Sandwich before coming up here And this morning I had a yogurt Auger.

"Others mark graduated from Columbia with a degree in philosophy in two thousand six and he launched a `Nigma in two thousand thousands thirteen. Welcome thank you. How does a `Nigma work enigma? A the way that we generally talk about it is We call it a search and discovery platform platform for public data. So as you were saying essentially what it is is a central place where someone can go and search across and relate A very wide variety of public data data. What are some ways in which you're getting the data like are they basically on CD's or just vast piles of paper or talk to me about the conversion urgen from all these disparate offices to your ecosystem online? There's a really wide spectrum across. Let's say the fifty states. It's where you know for some states. They will do something like actually Melissa CD wants whereas other states are more sophisticated and they'll they'll actually make it available through an FTP feet or something like this. Some states preps in the Midwest and the south that we've called. There's sort of a process where we've need to sort of explain to them what we mean when we say like we we want all of the records you know we want all of the companies that they have information on and what has been the posture of the states. When you've called and said hi like all your public information please case you know again? It's certainly varied Some states have very streamlined. Systems for making this kind of data available for instance. I believe California is as you know maybe one or two hundred dollars and you can get access to every company in the state Whereas state like Delaware which of course is very valuable in a conversation like this because so mini companies are incorporated their charges several hundred thousand dollars even close to a million dollars depending on The the scope of data that you want and so this is one of the problems we I think. RUN INTO A lot. Is that while the state is is technically public in a sense the pathways for actually getting a hold of it and making it available available or are not always very clear so basically you know you have twenty or so people in your office just doing a forced march of the tedious work of both making sense of it or their computer like hurace sticks to facilitate that. Yeah really where you know the way that we view it as we want to be able to really just have the be able to draw upon human intelligence for what it's really best for which is interpretation and understanding and leaving the actual sort of dirty work of discovering bring in cleaning and and ingesting data to To a more programmatic approach. We're talking at about ten thousand feet But can you provide specific examples of how somebody would find your your information relevant. Let's say to a an investor on Wall Street. You know one thing that that you can use `Nigma for his to actually go and get a kind of view of the Fast Food Industry for instance that you wouldn't be able to get otherwise The reason for that is an unless you're a subject area very expert. This probably wouldn't occur to you. Is that every time. Let's say a new drive through restaurant opens anywhere in the United States like McDonald's or Burger King or whoever it might be They actually have to go and file an application with the Federal Communication Commission and what that creates is a kind of data signature of new. McDonald's that's opened and so using using something like FCC licenses you can have a proxy for the growth of fast food restaurants or even looking at something like Large public companies that do a lot of work with the government. So you can think of companies like Boeing or Raytheon Lockheed Martin or anything like that all of their actual public sector revenue. is available on government contracting databases. So you know whereas today an analyst on Wall Street might be looking at the ten K of Lockheed Martin or something like that and see the high level line line items of where that revenue is coming from but with a Nigga they can actually go and see on the contract by contract basis. What agencies are giving them that money with the contracts are foreign and and things of that nature part of the value of this data is the linkages between data sets? What's an example of that one of the very interesting examples of this? This is you know as you might remember back. In the two thousand eight elections it took a tremendous tremendous amount of time for John McCain actually announce who is vice presidential candidate was going to be but a journalist blogger was able to figure out that it was going to be Sarah Palin and the way that they did that I think is extremely Really very interesting so so essentially what they did is they went to the Federal Election Commission and figured out who all of the Big Republican fundraisers donors were and then they took that list of people and went chew some company databases from the SEC and some other spots as well and said okay for all these people what are the companies that are associated with them then they had a list of companies and people and they went to the Federal Aviation Administration and said Okay for those companies and those people. What airplanes do they own or control and then they went to another database and the Federal Aviation administration and said Okay for those airplanes where they've been flying and what that surfaced was that these essentially influential Republican planes which may be never flown north? Vail Colorado or. Whatever it might be we're now all on a particular weekend showing up in with Cilla Alaska and so is predicated on that that the journalist was able to to sort would've make his conclusion? That Sir Pelham is probably being looked at very closely. What's another example of finding meaningful information from linking These data sources. Let's say in the social title sector. Here we were we were working with A not for profit customer who is interested in what the connections between playgrounds and child abuse were so we were able able to go out And sort of start to pull bunch of demographic data about where child abuse is happening as well as pulling things like building permits and contracts and other ways to start to build up amount of where playgrounds are throughout the United States and predicated on that we were able to run an analysis that That sort of showed a positive indication that communities eighties with playgrounds had lower incidences of Of Child Abuse. How about some just fun data that you might acquire data? That might be less useful. Let's say eight to investor or an investigative reporter one of my favorite data sets that we've recently gotten his one of New York City taxi data. So it tells you the pickup pick-up point and the drop off point of every taxi ride. I think in two thousand twelve. This becomes really interesting. Data set because when you start playing with it and asking questions of it you can see all kinds of really fascinating things emerge that. Let's use it. Let you actually watch over time. How this neighborhood Bushwick in Brooklyn has been a up and coming wing so people have been talking about this neighborhood for a while to actually be able to see over the course of initially a couple of months and then a full year the growth of Of trips CBS from Manhattan and other parts of Brooklyn Bushwick With something that I personally found very interesting. I'm just like a harass. You're listening to from scratch. My my guest is marked. DACOSTA CO founder of `Nigma an online company that uses the Internet to make public data available if I was using a `Nigma to you do research on you before this interview. How would an enigma helped me find information you well? That's a great question you know. It's it's I think. One of the first or second things that people generally do and they come to `Nigma is search themselves. So if you were to look me up on a Nigga you've Coursey my The fact that I have this company take Monday through one of the officers have been involved in fundraising and things like that You would maybe see things about Real estate records or campaign contributions that have happened in the past so I used to own an apartment in Los Angeles so you would learn about that Sadat sort of in a sense the data picture. You've got me if you went to Google search trauma you'd find out very different things about me You know you would find out where I went to school. You start to read articles in unstructured other interviews. I've given and things like that. There's a very very interesting kind of portrait that one can build up of a person by looking at at both perspectives. I WanNa talk about what you were doing. Prior to launching launching enigma You are working for Intel The technology company. And you were working. Specifically on cartography Interactive cartography mapping. What were you doing for them? I was actually in a PhD program at the University of California around cultural anthropology. I I was under a fellowship that Intel it provided to go and do research on cartography in Amsterdam sit thinking about how we can better map the climate so in a city like Amsterdam. How could we start to build in Bring information about The buildings or the factories in the countryside or the more generally economic activity that's props in impacting acting. The local air supply. I've heard that it was there. That the germ for enigma emerged. How was that? Yeah very much so in the course of going to look for that data. I very quickly discovered that I was spending a lot of if not most of my time actually going out finding and cleaning and maintaining this data And it was around. Got Those sets of problems that We started to work on Nigga. You came up with the idea in Amsterdam to start this company. And you reached out to your college classmate e Shem Gary Who at the time was a currency trader on Wall Street? Why did you seek him out? Specifically we'll show hi has been Very close friends. We actually met in the Philosophy Department at Columbia and have been you know sort of talking on the phone every day for years at this point and so you know as much of a kind of idea that emerged between us as we were both sort of see encountering different problems with Dade. I mean you know on my end it was trying to find things thanks to help. Better describe the built environment and Amsterdam Free Shawmut was trying to find more More sort of quantitative data to help describe the causality currency fluctuations and things like that. What point did he stop his Wall Street job and did you stop your fellowship To work fulltime on an. Yeah so we formally launched the company in May of two thousand thirteen but it was two years earlier in twenty eleven that we sort of you know really sort of rolled up our sleeves and started to build up the the core technologies and was that more. Just the exigency of you know feeding yourselves or Joe is largely just sort of making sure from a cash flow perspective that the things were well enough situated that we would be able to to jump into it during this time you would Beta test. The technology and one of the tests you did was with Harvard. The business school students and faculty. How did you connect with them to have them test?.

Or you know what I mean to the more sexier exa teams but there's ways to get your bench better and if you got to get rid of Xm if you gotta get rid of some of these young the guys they got to improve now man like you said that window Conley. I know Donovan John. and Rudy's not old guy but the West waiting for man. I think your point on Donovan is spot on and that I remember telling people when I was having those conversations I would feel really confident about Utah if Mitchell were like two years older and everyone thought the leap was gonNA come after team. USA 'cause he was the Alpha dog on team. USA hasn't happened yet. It's early. It's early but but Gobert is what he is. Bogdanovich is what he is a very good player. Conley's declining Mitchell's gotta be a star like a superstar for them to hit their ceiling and he hasn't been anyway. That's our tour through the Northwest Division. We've forgot minute. We didn't get MINNESOTA. We talked about then he was located. We're let's just leave it there. 'cause I gotta I gotta I gotTa give up the Studio Two who minutes Marc Spears. It's all over.

"The blazers. Played the Lakers on Friday should be very interesting. Because like I said they've stabilized and the blazers since lamarcus left have a history three of kind of sometimes to in some taking a while to get going they. They had a couple of years in a row where it was like January February season. Saving hot streak there wins and we'll call hold the mellow era. Their wins in the Mel ear are Bulls Times to thunder at home sack at home so like not a murderer's row. So linked Lakers will be interesting and Dame mm-hmm like head. I mean it's every year it's like twenty seven seven the last three years every twenty seven seven just goes out and like adds new rink like death. Taxes and day adds new wrinkles every year. Like he's he has all these creative finishes around the RIM lefty getting into people's body Big Guys bodies around the Rim and finishing teaching like kind of over knocking them off and Fisher as watching. I remember who they were playing. Must have been one of the Bulls Games. Maybe they kept setting these double screens for dame you know these. Like double drags at the top top of the ARC and he did distinct twice. And you could tell. I think it was the bulls. Didn't expect it where he goes around the first screen and usually talk about splitting splitting defenders exploiting defenders. He split screens like he went around the first green and then went right down through the middle. It's rates twice and got lamps like this adding stuff every year and so do some about his basketball IQ and CJ after a slow start is now at twenty two game on forty five percent thirty nine percent from three twenty two would be his second is scoring average ever. So he's stabilised. Last words mellower seventeen. I think thirty nine percent from three can't argue with shooting thirty nine percent from three. You're helping your team now again. There'll be some defensive challenges that are coming up that are more pressing than the teams that I just mentioned up. Let's take what. What is this? The North West Division. These teams are in whatever bogus get rid of division visit of for their so bogus her so stupid Oklahoma City I believe is part of the Northwest Division. They're in some division here. I saw Utah. Utah where you're going going through the Northwest Division. I hope he's seems are hanging division banners anymore. I wonder what that's like. What's the last team to hang a division? I bet the wizards did when they won their division region for the first dominant Middle Stars and medals to houser. But I'm talking about new ones like if you win it now. You gotta be a sad sack team tanning into banner I disagree with the Warriors on and this is on a higher level like I don't understand why they don't put their Western Conference champions advantage. You think they should. Yeah I think fish I think conference championships at big deal. You won three playoff rounds of seventy three game win season. That's not upton rather banned for that I mean I think they have that but I think like those two finals. They lost a great teams like in. Obviously the last one was an injury ravaged. They should respect what they didn't put banner at form it. I'm not saying that needs a ceremony but growing up in the bay. They were so bad. Now's a child like you'd watch and be like Oh therefore games outta the eight spot with a month left. They got a chance like winning a championship for warriors fans in the eighties and nineties. He's making a playoff. Yeah warriors fans became Lakers fans. Because I was the only way they would see winning. You know so to me. I think they forget how bad it was. Ensure respect the success that they had its conference champions that big deal division championship. I think unless you're like it's like a wizard situation relation where it's been that long. I think you've got Lego. Oklahoma City's individual caught up with Chris. Paul Recently I think in New Orleans you said when the thunder were playing the the Pelicans elegance and Kris told you made some news. Chris told you Daryl Morey told me I wouldn't be traded to the thunder and then two days later. I got traded thunder rocket source clarifies to you that Chris was probably told a slim chance he gets traded to the thunder. Took that maybe took. That is no oh chance. And maybe maybe incorrectly that trade. Don't you feel like we haven't heard real story of that trade the whole the whole real store. Here's a thirty for thirty. We need to do on that trade trade. I mean Chris Tells You Chris tells you straight up. Yeah haven't talked to James in a while you know I could send things weren't the greatest with those two guys I really WANNA go watch that last game. 'cause I've heard talk about body language and James Maybe not run up and down the corridor them barking at each other on the bench. That story's going around that there are some bench a lot of bench bar one thing. Yeah I heard which I will say this because at the preface it that I have to see to believe but one rumor I gotta put exclamation points before where I say it right. I don't know this fact but I was told that James ran up to Coach Antoni Eh. And put his hand over his mic. Because then Tony was. Mike told him. We gotta get Chris out here out of the game. No Out Outta here here out of here wow you know. I know there was a game in the Chris played against the warriors. Where where I could tell things? Weren't that great because he flew home by himself. After warriors game like took a red eye. The rockets were staying tonight. Think he wanted to get home and be with his kid. He's a big family guy but obviously James has has the power in James Wanted Accord. Seemed like James wanted to stay in. Chris wanted to go and Chris didn't have the power to make that decision so he flew home on his own which is really really. I think an odd thing to do But that kind of made me see that. Okay all is in good natured. Now Watt Motor season and the rockets are now thirteen and seven defensively. They're up to sixteenth which which means they've probably been top seven or eight for the last twelve games or so after a terrible start and the James Ross fit is endlessly interesting to me. It's it's GonNa be interesting to me the entire season and so like a couple of weeks ago. Denver started this thing of. We're going to trap. James like doesn't matter if it's no pick and roll or I mean we're the wrong two guys out. And when he crosses court then Dallas. Did it the clippers. Even did it which I know surprised the rockets because they're like you got quiet posers. You're trapped his dude. Yeah The PELICANS did it the mavs did it. I repeated one team. I apologize and the Spurs didn't do it the other night. When James took nine thousand shots got fifty he points at the dunk? It didn't count which by the way to expand the replay rules the replay rule should have so there's all the stuff that you can replay right like you know wotton. They replayed it. I don't know what they could. But then the time expired side just these explanations like I can't even care like I don't like you know what these Russia just cheat sometimes but this is what I'm about to say okay so you can review out of bounds goaltending but you can't review this and you can challenge them saying sheet in terms of in the betterment of what happened. We're just GONNA go look it but what this is my proposals that are going by the letter law. The letter of the law should include dumb things. Don but that yeah dumb or that or something where it's it's like the Astros Astra's ash do dunked. It went through the net. We didn't count it. Let's count it now. I understand that the league is worried about out opening up a Pandora's box which is why the rockets the rockets desired every little thing. The the rockets desire to protest hilarious because the League is going to say the rockets. Look I understand that. That's a little too points like in the most literal sense. But like you start to legislate that we're going to go back and say well. That was a bad foul called. That guy's a ninety percent free throw shooter. That's probably two points or whatever like they don't open that Pandora's back there's just gotta be common sense rules like the ball went through the net. I could tell in real time but went through in that Anyway I don't even know what the Hell's Oh the trapping stuff. That's a direct. I don't think anyone's really written this yet. That's a direct result of exchanging. CPI FOR RUSS. Because now you have to non-shooters on the floor Russ and Cappella unless they're playing Tucker at center and before you had one and so with two non-shooters on the floor. You throw two guys at James the other guys get to play four on four on three two of them are gonNA shoot. And so you're like well we. If shoot wide open threes. We have time to scramble back and recover and Houston is trying to figure out and I think they're starting to learn how to play around. That and part of it is part of how you play around it. Is you play faster. So that they don't even have time to set their defense that I don't have time to trap and that is also a direct result of trading. CPI for rush. So it's interesting to see how all these things in Iraq but I don't think that trapping stuff is gone away. I think other teams are going to try that if only to throw hard and in their minds ends I don't know if hardened will fall for it. If only to throw hard enough of his game it's been interesting to see him deal with it and and it'll be interesting James in the playoffs. See if he can get get over the hump. See you get I mean. The West is the Lakers Clippers Portland. I mean Utah will rebound. I mean it's we're going to talk about it. You telling the second last is is tough man. Well it's interesting because Denver has Denver's thirteen at five and Denver ranks in offense right now. Twenty I I. I don't believe in him that probably because they're twenty first offense and their best player looks disinterested I look i. In fact he walked into camp looking like me bothers me. I fought like like other markets. Who are in New York? I'm going to see them in like three hours. I like you're supposed to be the leader of the franchise you're supposed to be the role model. You're getting paid. Come Ready Bro. I saw some quotes after last game which I watched and I still care who was. Oh Lakers I think it was after the Lakers. You know maybe one anyway. I'M GONNA stop you if Lebron if Dane Anthony Davis if Janas if they would've came in fat Ada got destroyed. Well why did this guy not here. It is it because he's in Denver market. I think there's benefits to be. There's benefits to being like everyone. Likes a charming guy right and like he's a but they have to check out check out hammered for two. He was so good at one though he was so good. It didn't matter like I got the sense from them like I thought they would have been crushed that they've got knocked out the way they got knocked out. I have my ticket to Denver Man. I'm restaurants Toronto. Ready Hotel everything. I really thought with all due respect Damon. Cj that like for a team that got knocked out the way Aday did with the sea they had you would think they're star will. Come in looking like a donnas. That's a it's actually a very interesting point you make because now. The Denver has not had a lot of success in the postseason for a long time. Even in the George Karl era they lost in the first round. Almost every year Thompson was less when Ruth and so they build this young team.

And and and having heard that word on the street were number we hear a lot of stories. one-storey are what's also interesting about Damon. You really get at this is athletes would hobbies are sometimes criticized for not working hard enough being an athlete dame has never ever hit had that and maybe it's just because when you hit two series winning walk off shots you're just immune from everything but it or maybe he's just so serious at both and people have realized yes. It's possible to be serious. It is an interesting to you that no one's ever been like. Oh you're not in the gym enough. You're not careful. You're like shack care more about wrapping than basketball. 'cause he bought every time he does is known on Digression In my years of being a I'M GONNA go back to my early years of being a beat writer. Cover the Denver Nuggets for eight years. When I first started covering nuggets August ninety nine we used to get to watch practice amazing magic? They don't let us do. They haven't let us do that for about fifteen. All the secrets that happened at practice on the curtain. But like we'd see five tweets the all kind of stuff and basically we were told you go watch but if there's a fight or something out of order happens you can't reported reported what you had degree to. If you wanted to watch so I would go there and one thing I realize. Is these guys get a lot more free time than I think the the public realizes practices hour and a half two hours loud at practices are BS. You know walk through stuff. They may show up our two hours before whatever but ultimately if you think about it there in the arena for on a on a practice day like three to five hours right. What do you do to rest today? And I've talked about it. Like what do you do all this extra time. mm-hmm yeah so it's not like the typical American worker nine to five on a lunch break and coming back and finishing out the day. Hey they show up at nine and they might be out by twelve or one. Then what what do you do now. Every obviously it is not like Gandhi's travel you'll get you'll get whatever thirty days a year of your work day work your whatever it is like that. Yeah and he's good. I'm not a rap AFICIONADO.

"In New York with one of his generation bins great centers the Toronto Raptors Marcus Saul just completed one of the most eventful years of his career a k with Mike Conley Tony Allen the grit and grind and a feeble World Cup championship with the Spanish national team one of the great international runs of this past generation the gasol brothers and we talk about his brother POW team basketball in the be a being a part of something how difficult it was for him to leave Mike Conley in Memphis leave that fan base where he literally grew up from a high school player to a pro and now his time in Toronto Post Kawhi Leonard always a fascinating conversation Shen with one of the most thoughtful players in all of basketball here's my visit with Marcus all here with Markelle Saul in ORC at the tail end of NBA. preseason mark how are you I'm good so mark last spring I don't you remember this you had been traded to Toronto maybe a few weeks earlier the bucks were in town I think they had stayed an extra day or two a New York the raptors were coming into town the play I was in the lobby of what isn't the hotel we're at but I was in the lobby with your President GM Jerry and you in POW come wandering down together and neither knew the other tell us that story about the hundred percent back I was the first time for me being treated different team you're trying to still learning the ropes and and kind of understanding the routine team have and and whatnot and I'm not very good at keeping up with you know all the teams scheduled so empowered knows that so he actually got bought out by by his previous team in the spurs so he was in a different team let alone so we both in New York he's you know he's not playing time not following him and all of a sudden he tells me we talk through the phone eggs and so were you at a New Yorker say no bleep me too I'm like no you kidding what hotel what was your seventeen I'm like four team just come on up so yeah it was it was wind up in integrate dinner the night and we went for breakfast the next morning but yeah who thought is just unreal it was funny you guys I told some of that story in the lobby on your way out the appreciation it was when you to start at the lead together and you get traded for each other you had been drafted by the Lakers and you get traded for POW he and I talked about that in Milwaukee earlier this summer about when he was trying to process that day wait I've been traded I traded for my brother and he's trying to and then it was you know he played against each other in a regular season game he played against each other in an all star game and now you're much further along than your career closer to the maybe then you are the appreciation you have like when you can go spend a night with him in the city when you just didn't imagine it is that like now for you to you realize how fortunate you are and what a crazy live that the NBA is and how unstable find your brother in the same hotel within all the craziness of the MBA scheduled to different teams use your comfort and you know we are very close family we very close to one another we don't come from a huge family either like we come from a small family we have two cars in you know in an ankle we still have our grandparents three of them skin alive so we are very close family even though we leave in other side of the world was still a very close family so it's just feel very lucky it thirty four years old mark what do you find yourself valuing more how this life in the NBA then maybe you did at twenty four years old what what what what is more important to you now that maybe it was then a lot of things a lot of things I think a twenty four you just don't hope you don't you don't have the same perspective the viewing all it's much more narrow now as you get older you you see the impact that you have in other people and how many people follow the game I think when you're younger you narrow vision is just looking into the the you raise shortsighted now as you get older you understand more how everything works is not about you anymore at least once you have kids also lie becomes or your life becomes kind of second Mareo or even farther down so it's just it's just different different now than it was a twenty four you more mature things do not affect you the same way everything is not as personal as fell back then you're not you realize you're not the center of the universe think about the year you had and when you started that season in Memphis and you guys got off to a pretty good start and you might not have imagined that the team would get well you would move on and then obviously mike goes at the end the season and you go to Toronto and to think like I'm GonNa WanNa Championship in Toronto and Oh there is a championship left for the Spanish national teams maybe I didn't imagine we had one left in us what is that whole past year met I like it was hardly be memphis it was very hard for me I was not you know excited about it at all the thought of it because it was like I think ten days two weeks finks cycle and you let it go so I I fought it but then you know right away as soon as that call would Masai happen and he you sit championship does a goal and an olive realize the Rosser that we're gonNA play with everything changed just that that tension that gold at that change everything in my mind what was it about you and Mike Conley that kept thinking we want to do it here you look around the NBA and that is not a mindset when things start to fall apart around you when the when you see hoarding casts isn't there when there's constant turnover and coaching all the things that go into franchises Kinda descending guys say I want out of here why were you and Mike Conley so different I think Memphis and kind of made who who were I mean I went to high school there obviously and you know from being a very young guy a sixteen year old who being a father thirty four and they're just you know a lot of years in between and most of them were great and we great memories and we felt responsible for the franchise event men's sacrificing our own personal goals outside the team was the official watch of the NBA..
