Chris Kohls Weighs in on Margot Kidder As Lois Lane

"Kidder. Where do you stand on Margo kit? Because I'm a little bit conflicted here. I've never had a problem with Margot Kidder. I've always thought that she was a fine actress and well cast in the part just because she's so spunky. And that to me is the essence of Lois lane. She's the spunky girl who gets into trouble and that Clark Kent finds himself falling in love with and can't help himself from just, you know, we can't always decide who we fall in love with. Sometimes they're not the best people for us. And in Clark Kent's case, it becomes his great weakness. So

"Pop in Josh pops in to make sure they're wearing there. Headphones. When we interviewed John Stamos, Oliver got up to pee, left his AirPods in while he was peeing, so we can all hear him peeing. And she wasn't pooping. It's true. You know, and Josh was like helping John figure out his better how to make the audio better. And but really, yeah, every interview we're on in the background, watching, just to make sure that it goes well, which is pretty much like the coolest thing. It's really, and they're really good at it. So there's never, there's rarely time. I can only think of maybe like one or two interviews where like, you know, because I'm saying that you can't see me, but I'm taking notes and monitoring like how's it going? And usually, honestly, I could probably walk away from my computer and just leave it. And they and Joan Oliver never have an issue, there's no problem. Everything is completely fine. I can only think of one or two where I was like, oh, I can tell that this is like the audio's not great, so they can barely hear the person or like some things make it uncomfortable. But when they're interviewing people, it's just smooth sailing for me and Josh generally. When it's the two of them, is when I'm like on point, like waiting for them to be like, Margot cut that or like, look that up. When they don't have a guess. Yeah, when it's just the two of them, because they'll talk about things and then they'll be like, well, I don't know. How many times was Phil Collins married Margot? How many times? You know what I mean? I don't know, but I know he has ten trick sex.

"It must feel like I'll ask you, what does it feel like to put this out? I am. For the record. 'cause this is awesome. Thank you. Thank you, Joe. And how do y'all are? Am I? Yeah, so look, one working up the courage to go write it. One working up the courage to go look at the last 50 years of my life and journals have been keeping for 36 of those years and say, hey, let it tell you what, let the book be what your past has told you it's about. To share that, a lot about freedom for me. I'm always trying to close that gap between, you know, we all got a gap between who we are and who we really are, what we really act like and what people are receiving. I was like, man, I want to close that, close that gap. It becomes a little extra work, having to put on new hats. You know what I mean? For like, oh, well, this is who I am, but this is who I want to come across as her or this is how I'm received. I want to close that gap. And if it was going to be worth sharing, if people were then shared in a book, my original goal was this. I knew there would be people, even if even if the words on the page in this book sucked, they were getting people that are going to buy this book anyway because, hey, I'm Matthew McConaughey. Now neither of you people out there were even if the words you were great, were never going to buy the book because, hey, it's by Matt McConaughey. So I said, look, I like that. I mean, that's honest, he's insightful. Super true and super honest and I think you two rarely are I too rarely hear people like everybody's like downplays their fame or celebrity Ness in some ways. Like to be like, yeah, I'm fucking famous and I wrote this book and that's why somebody's buying it, not because I'm a great writer or maybe he is. Or not because they know anything about what this book is actually about, but my face is on the cover and they say, oh, that guy. I know that guy. I like that guy. Yeah, totally. I have to tell you, for some reason, like his mannerisms, and it's because when we did this, I hadn't seen Michael Dennis husband in a while. I saw him once a year. And now I've spent much time with him since moving, I moved from Atlanta to Tucson and my sister and her husband lived like 5 minutes away. So we see each other all the time. And now watching this for some reason, I think we had a really reminding me of Michael. Maybe not even in how he looks, but just like, I don't know. Something is like his, I don't know, his essence. I feel the essence more Oliver. Really? Yeah. So interesting. Okay, sorry, back to I have his book actually. I think I bought his book too. I didn't read it though. McKay's? Yeah, I think I have it on the bookshelf here. I'm gonna check while we let him talk for a second. The words on the page. I wrote this on day four right in the book, the words on the May the words on these pages be worthy of sharing if it was signed by anonymous and at the same time be a book that only McConaughey could have written.

"Hi daddy, she's listeners. Welcome to another daddy issues rewatch with me, Margot and my sister, Jenna. Before we get into the episode that we're gonna rewatch today, I wanted to make something clear to everyone that might be under the impression that we think that these rewatches are even remotely close to as good as having Joe and Oliver on. I've gotten a lot of messages that are really supportive. We really appreciate you guys doing these rewatches. We love deers and Josh. We love yours and your sisters. But we've also gotten some messages that are like, you know, we were losing interest. We're not into this. This is not what the content that we want. And I am very, very aware of that. I don't want you to anybody who's listening to think that we think we're like pulling a fast one on you. And like, oh, Joe and Oliver are not here. They're not going to care. I get it. You would rather hear from Joan Oliver, you don't necessarily care about hearing from me and Josh or me and my sister. But at this point, that's not possible because Joan Oliver are busy Oliver is on set every single day right now. Joe is starting football season with a brand new network. So they have scheduling as difficult. And they don't want to record episodes where they're not giving their best versions of themselves. So, since they're taking a little break to refresh, which everybody is, you know, we all need self care. Exactly. Everybody needs self care. Everybody deserves a break. And it's not like there having a break sitting around eating Bon bons and doing nothing. They're both working also. I wish they were. I wish they were too, but they're working and they're busy, and so the options right now until they come back, which I've gotten a ton of messages with people saying, I'm so worried they're quitting. I look forward to this. Are they really coming back? I promise you. There was a discussion today about what the first episode when they come back might look like they will be back. They will be back in about a month. And so until then, the options are nothing. Where we just put nothing out and you can scroll back and listen to old episodes or take a break from daddy issues, which we don't obviously want you to do, or this. And the hope that this is just for the people who are loyal listeners and who really look forward to the show and it's part of their weekly routine that this is something slightly new for you. You still get a little Joe and Oliver, but maybe myself or Josh or my sister can offer a comment or some insight or a little story that will make you laugh or that will give you a little more background on the show or on the guides. And if that happens for even a few people, then great, that's the whole point of this.

Sebastian Talks to Chris Kohls About Warner Bros. Shelving 'Batgirl'

"Somebody who's been an actor, been a writer, worked in Hollywood, understand kind of pulling the plank when you're having the first initial meetings about investing. I can kind of pulling the plug when you've got the first week of dailies. Pulling the puck up to the whole thing is even been scored in ADR. How does that happen in Hollywood? I'm just curious. They have $90 million invested in this. Some people are reporting to have a $100 million of it. I don't know if that's rounding up or what. Just to cap off the green jump Pierre and the whole communications department jumping ship and all that. The reason I believe that batgirl was so terrible wasn't just the wokeness, it was the people they hired. So the woman that wrote Birds of Prey, I don't know if you saw that movie or heard about it. Birds of Prey is one of the worst movies that's come out. Joker spin off who's that woman, Margot Kidder? Yeah, exactly. Yeah, Margot Robbie. Who's very cool, by the way. I've met rogel Robbie, she's actually awesome. But yeah, Birds of Prey was a disaster. And I watched that just because I wanted to see how bad it was, and it was hilariously bad. Anyway, I got a video coming out about batgirls, but I'm giving it to everybody now already. But they hired the woman who wrote that to write this. I mean, that was feminist garbage that came out. It was a flop. It lost them a $100 million, no joke. Worldwide, it lost them a $100 million. They brought it, oh, you know that pile of dog excrement that you wrote? Could you do that again?

"Did I read what? The Mandela from listener Angie, and the latest episode Joe states, the saying is if you build it, he will come. He is correct for the producers, the sources Google. Thoughts you may also enjoy this, meaning you misremember to use Anthony Andy Pettitte's lingo. Right. Something that you would swear on your life. Yeah. Did you hurt it one way, and it's wrong. Yeah. You know what I mean? Yes. Does that make sense? You heard it like everybody forever. If you build it, they will come. But if you build it, he will be. So I didn't remember that correctly. And I had to look it up because we were doing that game in the cornfield in Iowa. It's an unusual phenomenon when the large group of people remember something completely different than how it occurred or never existed. Here's a few is C-3PO all gold. Oh. I have no idea. But I knew this before I feel like so. You did. You know this one? Yeah, I didn't. Yeah. His leg has left or right leg is silver. No, but I would say no, but I feel like no, because it looked like he kind of had worn off a little bit. I feel like there's some black something. I don't know. He's not your eyes are red, aren't they? No. Like a different color. No, they're like yellow. Like blue or something? Green? Oh, he said. I think they were like white. Oh yeah, you're right. You're right. But I feel like his body, C-3PO, not R two D two. C-3PO, look like some of the gold had worn off. And he was that kind of silver. I'm going to look down one. Then he had wires. I looked up a picture of him, by the way. His eyes are, they are, I guess, white, but they look like a very yellowish white, so. That's very warm white tone. Is it you? Life is like a box of chocolates. Yes. That's what I've always thought. Obviously it is, and there wouldn't be on here. Right. Well, what is it? Margot. Margot's having a connection fit. Is that even a real thing? What is connection anyway? Have you heard that? Of course, but what is a conniption fit?

"So Margot, shit. It's making me uncomfortable. I'm having a good time. You're having a nice time. Well, you know, it's always like I worked all day and you come back to the hotel and walk out of the fucking podcast. But the minute we get on, I just, I say it every fucking time, but I enjoy it. So Margot sent us these together. And I think they're so good. Yeah, they are good. I have oh no, these are listener questions. I haven't read these. I read like the top three in the top three. They're all really good. Good. They really are. Where I was like, yes, so here's one from an anonymous message on Twitter. I genuinely want to know their stance on this topic. Pornography use pornography use a husband and father. Argo, what is this? Yeah, as a husband, what do you think about a husband and a father watching porn? Okay, okay, so I genuinely so anonymous message on Twitter. I genuinely want to know their stance on this topic. Pornography use as a husband and a father. Do they think it's okay? My wife is not really okay with it and views it as a form of cheating. It is something I have struggled with. And just to be clear, we're talking about watching porn not starring in it. Right? Thank you. Important distinction we didn't make in the episode, but anyway. Really be interested in hearing what the guys think and what their stance is. Take it, Joe, 'cause I have thoughts. Yeah, I don't know that of all the weird bullshit. You and I have talked about over the years. I don't know that we've ever even talked about this. And so it's a great question. I think it's fine. And I think it's, I think, when the question is, my wife is not really okay with it and views it as a form of cheating. That seems crazy to me. My gut reaction to that is cheating is cheating. And when I was in a previous life, the one thing I wouldn't do because of everything I said at the beginning of this podcast about going to somebody else's house and being as a little kid in this and I am the result of this. Thing that happened between two people. That was the one thing I wouldn't do is I wouldn't cheat. So I think cheating is cheating. I think pornography using it is not that big of a deal. I really don't. And as an adult, and I was listening to stern today and there was a woman called, they called in and said that her 12 year old is like on Pornhub or whatever it is. And or whatever it is. And now that's a different thing. And it was great to hear because the woman said that she told her son exactly what you said on this podcast, Oliver, which was, that's not real life. That's not how men treat women. That's not how men should treat women. This is not a real interaction. This is acting and this is for England. Yeah, this is for, quote unquote, entertainment. So I thought she had really good thoughts on it. But I do not personally see that. As a form of cheating and I would much rather somebody use that

And I'm an idiot because I'm like, I remember this and I'm watching and I'm like, wow, is this actually true like Joe got this from a good source? And then I was like, is he just actually saying lines from the song? And making a joke about this? And I still don't know the answer to this. I don't know. I don't know. Fuck. I have no idea. But I want to say that not only that. But Phil Collins, if that's not bad enough, he had blue jeans sitting on the beach. Her dog's talking to me, but she's I'm trying to do. I can't. I'm gonna edit this out. Lyrics from genesis, I can't dance. And I can't make it. I can't make a good comparison. Okay, but that exactly what you were just doing is literally what I have wondered ever since this episode is Joe just saying because he says, if you were drowning, I would lend a hand. I feel like those are lyrics, right? Yeah. But they are definitely lyrics. Right. In the air tonight, yeah. So is he just making this up based on the lyrics? Or was this actually a thing? Did people think that Phil Collins didn't save somebody and then wrote a song about it? I don't know. We'd have to Google it. Can you look it up maybe, try and look it up. Listen to this. See if there's any actual discussion about that. Okay. I'm on it. But it sounds like this is a quote unquote inside good source of Joe. So I know, but I don't know. Why are sometimes? Or like storyteller? Yeah, yeah. I know. This could this could all just be a whole, this is probably all just a bit. And we have no idea. I know. The pandemic has made me stupid. I told her that I told Margot this after the before we started recording, that the pandemic has made me up total moron. Like, things are just going right over my head. No. Anyway. No, that's not true. Okay, I'm looking it up. Bill Collins is actually guilty by association for not and I think it's. Making me laugh. Oh my God. I think it's time that he get brought in on some sort of charges. I think it's a bit. I just think it's fascinating, honestly, to stop. That I don't care how old you are, where you grew up, everybody has heard that story. You know, you know what the story is behind in the air tonight.

He is former chief of staff at The Pentagon for investigator for the intelligence committee of the House, cash Patel, welcome back to America first. Zep, thanks so much.

We got to talk about this new, very different initiative that you have become involved with, a new publication, but first, because we've been discussing it already with Margot Cleveland, John Solomon today, the sussman trial continues, and it seems very strange that your former colleagues are also former DoD DoJ prosecutor. Your former colleagues taking the stand being asked very important questions by this independent council, they're not being very talkative or helpful for John Durham. Why is that cash Patel? It's amazing. Some of these people and actually all of them, I worked with at the Department of Justice. I know them personally for my time as a national security prosecutor. These are some of the most intellectually smart advanced people I've ever met and all of a sudden, I don't know. I can't remember. I'm not really too sure about that, you know? This is what happens when you politicize the national security apparatus. These people who are supposed to take their oaths of office seriously, especially when called upon to testify in a federal prosecution, should not be allowed to get away with this nonsense. But to me, it just shows the jury and the world that they were all in on it. They don't want to get in any trouble.

My part obviously I'm not a psychologist. I'm not a psychologist or anything like that. I'm just a scientist, but it seems to me that why not just let people why not just let these coworkers stay home, pay them to stay home and have that money that they need. Until something else comes into town, maybe there's some state initiative that brings a new manufacturing facility in the town, which is something that happened at the Navajo coal plant. And they brought in a manufacturer of mattress of homes like prefabricated homes to take over that plant. Okay. So these things can happen, but really the state needs to be involved and they're being ignored. And so in that case, yeah, Bitcoin, it looks bad for Bitcoin, but actually it's more complicated. And all of these coal stories are very similar. Like with stronghold, that's a coal waste remediation plant. And the energy justice network was how to pose any of this type of coal coal waste plants in Pennsylvania. But their alternative was something called seagrass, I think..

What do you have to say about that from friends who are skeptical about Bitcoin? Do you a full Margot? It's my fault. I'm working against climate movement. I've lost my way. And then I have to go and I have to spend hours digging through these stories, trying to figure out what's really going on. And the thing with coal again is bad incentives, bad government incentives. And not only that, it's a just transition issue in some parts. Like, was this recent coal plants in Montana beowulf teamed up with marathon? Yes. I remember they brought it back online. Yeah. And so that was a big deal. And the community, some people in the community were upset about it. Okay, but here's the problem. That that power plant was funded through state bonds. And it was to do repairs on it. And the only way for them to get for the city or whatever, I guess the city was given the bond. The only way for them to get that money back is through tax revenue. The company that or utility that was running that coal plant had not paid taxes since like 2016 or something. So they went all these years with no tax from them. And then there were people employed at the coal plant, let's say like a hundred people. And now, once that power plant shuts down, where do they go find work? So that's a jaw transition. If we are going to do this transition right, we have to take care of the coal workers. We have to take care of these small towns because what's going to happen to them if they have no revenue..

"Slash WBD for info and early access. I agree with that. Yeah. I mean, we saw that essentially in the double zone. Of course. Wrote about in your article, which we will share in the show notes because it's a thought provoking article. And we're going to cover the climate stuff. We all get in there. Which is the babies I want to speak to you, but just be one. One question before we get to that is that in the Bitcoin world, there are, as we said, lots of libertarians who believe in some in no government some in smaller government, there are people on the right who generally kind of even though the rights now conservative the Republican side hurt our big government, but these people do believe in smaller government and kind of leave me the fact below and kind of stuff. I think Bitcoin is struggled to bring progressives in. And this is one of the reasons I want you on the show, one of the reasons I had better arc on the show recently have had a need to partial the show. I will happily have anyone there for I don't care. Have anyone on because I think it should bring us all together. But why do you think we've struggled to bring progressives into the Bitcoin world? Yeah, I think part of it is that progressives are looking towards using government to create protections for the working class. And they see that as the main way to do that in this society. And they're wary of anything that that even sounds libertarian because that's the opposition. And of course, the other problem for them is that the fod is telling them two things. Bitcoin is bad for climate change. It's going to melt the planet. And Bitcoin is just a speculative asset. It's just for speculation, it has no real world value. Well, speculation, okay, that's triggering because we're opposed to Wall Street as progressive, right? You don't like washing, you think it should be better regulated, they're a part of the problem. And so all they're hearing is Bitcoin is just a tool for Wall Street. It's just another game, another market in which they can play and have fun and make money and they're not getting anything from it. So how do you get them through all these layers of FUD? It's a lot of layers. It's very, very hard. I got a text message from a friend yesterday. I was the last couple of days and completely blew my mind because I sent them last year I sent him an article that I wrote about climate change and Bitcoin called it the financial Hail Mary for the climate. Bitcoin adoption. And he read an early draft. And he was like, why do you think Bitcoin is going to say the world? He was like super skeptical and he actually, at some point, we couldn't even talk about it anymore because he would get really upset. And so he sent me a message. He was like, Margot, I'm so sorry. I just want to apologize for what I said. I didn't understand or he was like, now that I'm seeing how all these Russians are using it to be able to get around some of these more sanctions that are happening, like banks being freezing assets, freezing your money and stuff like that or dissidents or whatever he's saying now in the news or on Twitter. It's like now I basically now I understand..

"margot" Discussed on What Bitcoin Did

"It's important for us to think about all the different possibilities in which we could run our lives because for so long we lived within the structure. And this particular structure, I think, is failing. And so we have to figure out if it's failing what comes next. And if we have a chance to shape what comes next, we should really start looking at how other societies have operated in the past and try to get ideas of how to fix the problems that we have in this next step. It doesn't Bitcoin fixes. Bitcoin fixed somethings. Yeah. Absolutely. I think the great thing about Bitcoin is that Bitcoin is a decentralized network, right? But I don't think of it as just like a description of a network topology. I think of it as actually a philosophy that sort of rubs off on everybody who comes interacting with the network or participating in the network. And it changes the way you think about things. A lot of things. Yeah, I mean, myself as well. It's changed a lot of how I think about energy, for example. And I think that this is sort of like, it's a little bit of a children horse for figuring out how to run society in a less centralized way. And I think that that can actually help us. And one way that I think one area that I think it aligns very well with is something called communalism, which Murray books and developed in the later in life, I guess like in the 80s or 90s, he came up with this idea, which are like radical municipalities or basically it's like bringing governance more the power of governments down to the municipal level. Localism. Localism. So that was something that he defined pretty early on and he had a really good understanding also of the climate crisis. Before people started calling it a climate crisis or really understood climate change. On a national discourse level, like he was talking about this in the 80s. And so his solution was so he was originally he came out of the Marxist left. He became disillusioned with them. And then he became an anarchist, and then he started developing these ideas and he was like, this is one way that we can do some kind of some form of anarchism within the existing structure. And he called it communalism. He had a really hard time getting other anarchists on board with this actually, which I was kind of surprised with. I think maybe because it's sort of it's sort of somewhere in between. It's sort of, it's like no hierarchies. There's more like low hierarchies, but it can exist within the existing United States. And it's basically take over your local government. And start creating more of these local neighborhood assemblies, get people locally involved in their community and make decision decisions.

And you can call it capitalism, you can call it crony capitalism, call it whatever you want. The existing actual system that we live in is totally broken. And so I have called it capitalism. So I'm anti capitalist because I'm anti this system, but you can call it whatever you want. Maybe you're anti crony capitalism. It doesn't really matter. Like anti neoliberalism, it doesn't matter whatever this system is right now. Capitalism. This is broken. Yeah. Yeah. So do you get much what kind of pushback do you get from people when you discuss this? Because everything you're saying makes sense. Yeah. We all recognize it even Bitcoin is recognized it's broken, but when you say your anti capitalist, that's going to trigger people. Oh, yeah. Well, see, I learned that. I learned that in Bitcoin because I came out of a I come out of the left, right? And for us, it's very natural. Yeah, anti capitalism. We all understand what we mean. But if I say that to somebody who is a libertarian, oh my gosh, their head's going to explode. How dare you say that? And then if I tell, you know, if I tell them, I'm like, oh yeah, I come out of the left or I'm very anarchist, leaning or I mean I was definitely more like democratic socialist for a while because of Bernie Sanders. And if you say that, people get really triggered and they're like, oh my gosh, you know, you just tell me. Yeah, you just want to tell me what to do and take my property away and things like that. I'm like, no, I'm not really interested in doing any of those things, or you're going to come and mess up Bitcoin's monetary cap, you want to just free money and stuff..

"And I thought, you anyone can be a protester. But not everyone can edit video, not everyone can stand in front of a camera and do reporting. And I like journalism too. So I decided I'll just show up and participate as a gorilla journalist. And so I was there every single day at occupy Los Angeles, which was a fairly big protest alongside the main occupy Wall Street protest at Ducati park. And I was there every day and every night I would file a report and I would wander around interviewing people. And one of my goals was to try to show a different perspective than what you see on television. And I think coming from the Bitcoin space, like we know what that's like with all the FUD. Like we know how we get painted a certain way. And I felt that the people who were going to these protests weren't really getting the best light in terms of getting good questions and the people that they were selecting for interviews. So I showed up and I started interviewing people trying to find the intelligent people. And I did. I mean, I found some really great people. And I would ask them just a series of questions. And just talk about what was going on, the various protests and so I got to see over the entire period the progression and the shift in how the occupation was going and the, what they were trying to accomplish, and it was, it was incredibly, it was like one of the most important experiences I've had in my life. Because I got to see people really try to come together and form a community and do things that are society and officials were neglecting to do to take care of each other. And they were trying to figure out how to do that..

Saying here's how you do that. Securely here's why you might want to have a password or a waiting room on that.

"And i think that's something that everybody needs right now. So i think when when you hear brand voice the 'cause you instantly think about the words the the things that said to your presented you in word for my but you're talking here as well about the look and feel this the visual brand and you said the experience too so the the brand experience and all that together then becomes the personality of the the brand right right. I mean my background is in content strategy andbranch driven content strategy. And before that my my academic background is in visual design. And i i guess. I still think of them very closely related even if in content strategy. We're we're largely executing more through through content and copy and then maybe eventually through editorial style guidelines and in those kinds of choices that maybe affect copy more I think all of this still applies when you're evolving and identity when you're evolving voice. It applies both visually and verbally so to both word choice and content types as well as typography and color and the density of information on the page. 'cause you're gonna get if you don't get the whole personality right then. Feel feel disjointed. I guess as a when you're when you're meeting a personality well swing a bit weird about this when his flash flashing buttons on the website. And you're trying to be kind of like calming competing brand of whatever you're going to get the tooth in your head right and i think we've all had those sort of like weird Discomforting kind of experiences. Where a brand looks one way and sounds another. And you're like why are you dressed in a suit and using all these like short truncated incomplete sentences. What's going on there. And i think that goes back to. We'll do you have a some sort of consistent baseline message architecture or hierarchy of communication goals that says is it most important for you to project innovation or maybe being traditional or being welcoming. What's most important and that. How does that then guide your word. Choice your content types and look and feel and And i think when brands can establish that kind of consistent platform to guide their voice visually and verbally. That's what helps them evolve over time. It helps their audience. Know what to expect. It also helps all of their internal copy writers and designers and any freelancers. They use know how to develop calls to action and imagery. That's right for the brand and distinct for the brand so that even when you strip away the logo you still know who it is. with whom you're.

"Individual brands which is kind of scary because it means you might feel like wait where we're we're not doing anything wrong and yet it still feels like our marketing is falling flat or Sales cycles are taking longer or just that are messages. Aren't resonating and it might be because your brand doesn't doing anything wrong. But there's more of a kind of mindset of cynicism and distrust now and i think that's due to gas lighting in the political sphere media. Maybe not being as as engaged and incisive as they used to be in holding politicians to task in holding brands to task on things and And i think because now we're sort of swimming in this culture of of cynicism and fear and feeling like we can't trust anybody they're all out to get everybody's out to make a bacher whatever That's that's a bit tougher to address certainly in in an individual organization. Because how can you be expected to shift the all of society But i think that that's kind of also what designers have always done. We've responded to the the challenges and constraints and an zeitgeist to say all right. This is the baggage that our users bringing to the table. How can we make things better and more inspiring and And feel more deserving of confidence for them. I suppose what do you think about politics ampoules.

But i'm not convinced the majority of people do and that ties him. What you said about not losing share. And i think that even if like we can look at those examples and yes writ large. Volkswagen has not lost market share. But certainly we do also see kind of in contrast that other kind of blips win brands have not necessarily lost trust but they're caught maybe holding a an unpopular political position or or kind of promulgating perspective. That isn't in line with what most of their Their audience feels and then you see people vote with their dollars and say well. I'm gonna boycott them for a while and like in the.
