What To Expect From CES 2021
"Hi. How you doing? Good. The consumer electronic show 2021 talk to me a little bit about that. That's ce s 21, right? Yes, And what's interesting? I think about it is that this year? It's been very different, right? I mean, what hasn't been different, but this is one of the largest shows in the world usually attract somewhere around 120,000 people to Las Vegas, and it's an insane, you know, week of just all these new tech ideas and all that. This year. It's a little different, but one of the things that we've seen in a lot of these virtual presentations is actually a lot of technology to help with the pandemic, and what I think has been interesting is that ah, lot of this is taking health technology that was already on the horizon and kind of applying it to the pandemic and how to fight it. Me an example of some of the things that they're trotting out there A mask phone touchless doorbell. What? Caught your eyes. Yeah, The math phone is probably the best one right, So it's literally like one of those cheap Bluetooth headsets built into a mask. But it works. In fact, Reviewer of the Wall Street Journal said. She used it for Ah lot of conference calls, and she was very happy on day. It's only like 56 bucks so easy, but there are also other ones out there. For example, there's a bio button. And this is a really interesting idea. It takes sensors that are near hospital quality. Not exactly. Near that to come on your chest and just this one button. It's not a bunch of sensors. They're all built into this one button. It can stay there for up to 90 days, and it can track your vital signs and all sorts of other stuff and alert you. If you're starting to get sick now, it can't tell the difference between Cove it in the flu. Most of us can't either unless we get a test, but It's a good sign of kind of showing how technology that was again already kind of in the offing can be used in the more positive ways. And then finally, the touchless doorbell is probably one of the smartest dog type technologies I saw where literally it's a video doorbell, just like the ring that a lot of people have. And what it does is that they have a mat that they put right in front of the doorbell and the doorbell. It's been taught if someone is standing on that mat, so they're close enough immediately. Ring the doorbell don't have to have them touch it. And, of course, that's like, really smart idea, and that time when we're all worried about germs, same thing with the toilet, By the way, we've had, like sensor run toilets for a long time in businesses. Now they defend. They found a way to make it kind of lets ugly looking at home, And instead you just kind of wave your hand over the flushing The flusher like your jet I or something, So there's a lot of that type of stuff that we saw. Doesn't the Smartwatch already do some health metrics for you? It does, but it is not doing stuff like following your temperature as closely right. It's not, you know, the so far most of the watches are on Lee taking heart rate sometimes oxygen, though they're not terribly good at it, and, according to our reviews have seen it. And also the BCG, but they're not able to do stuff like your temperature and other stuff. And so I think what's interesting is it's not just taking those vitals the way that the watch does, which typically, the watches only, really doing that a lot during a workout, and then it's passively doing it every once in a while when you're not This button. In theory, for example, we haven't tested it, but in theory would actually be tracking you pretty regularly on day. Especially if you're someone who lets imagine you're over 65. You're in a in a home and you're really worried about possibly getting Cove it or getting sick.
Ring adds end-to-end video encryption to its doorbells and security cameras at CES 2021
"A couple of doorbell announcements dimension ring announced its doorbells and security cameras will start rolling out and and encryption to users in an opt in basis today as of today that's right ring videos Are already encrypted. But the addition of end to end means only the customer can view them not ring. That's a huge change. Arlo announced its own. Version of touchless doorbell Similar to one you guys mentioned earlier in the week from alarm dot com arlos version doesn't use a welcome mat though instead. The doorbell just detects when a person is close to the doorbell and rings a chime and shines a light so the person at your door knows. The doorbell has already been rung. Verges sean hollister asked the question of whether existing doorbells that already have cameras and speakers should get a software upgrade to do similar things.

Joe Bidens presidency
"And foremost happy new year to all our listeners. At the ever present risk of tempting fate it does feel like two thousand and twenty one can only be an improvement on two thousand and twenty one. Primary cause for optimism is the fact that after january twentieth earth's most powerful office will no longer be held by america's worst on imprisoned citizen description. Correct as of this broadcast between an untamed pandemic economic crisis and the spectacular mess made in general by president. Donald trump president elect joe biden faces a daunting oval office in trae won joint first of all by christchurch mcnichols news editor and by suzanne lynch washington dc correspondent with the irish times in this first part of the show. We'll look mostly at what president-elect joe biden wants to do and will do domestically but chris festival on that thought of succeeding donald trump. How much political capital does joe biden inherit just by virtue of not being donald trump. Well to be honest in some ways. That is a question that will be. I think more important end to discuss in the second half of our show. We look at foreign policy. Because i think that is where there is arguably a lot more political capital. You know joe biden will enter office of this month to lead a country that is still extraordinarily divided. It has to be said that whatever Court decisions were taken efforts to reverse. This election rejected by courts and by many academics. Who saw you know and others observers. Who saw no real evidence of fraud. It is important to point out. I think that potentially a majority of republicans are going to come into this year. Voters believing. Joe biden is illegitimate that that is not correct. That is not that is not what happened. But it is nevertheless a danger for democracy. And it's something that really i think is important to watch. Joe biden essentially has a tremendous amount of goodwill from half of the country who expects him to reverse many of the policies that donald trump implemented over the last four years and he will do a number of those from day one but we should not forget the other half of the country that will be causing a huge stink about all of this and it will be very interesting to watch how he tries to bridge those gaps particularly when it is such a strong divide as i say even in the sense of many just simply not even seeing him as their president suzanne to bring you in that division that chris delineates the is going to make extremely complicated one question. Joe biden will have to grapple with which is what does he do about donald trump. Does he as best he can. Just ignore him and hope he goes away or does he turn various congressional committees and the department of justice loose to try and get to the bottom wherever it may be of whatever. Wrongdoing was done. I don't think joe biden instinct will be to do that. I mean joe biden has presented himself very much as the kind of the nation's healer. He's talked about his own track record when he was in the senate for so many years of working across the aisle with republicans and working productively republicans. Now some might say that. Joe biden is suffering from naive radio. That washington has changed. That things have become much more polarized on they have in the last decade or so so he for example has has quietly hinted at his relationship with mitch. Mcconnell mitch. mcconnell is more more than likely going to be leading. i'm the two men have worked together. Particularly joe biden was vice president and mitch mcconnell in the senate and but even still you know. We saw mitch mcconnell reluctance to add call. Joe biden president-elect even though he had had won the election so that is a major at challenge for at for joe biden is going to be handling congress also. The problem facing him is democrats did very badly in november's election in terms of their seats. Both the senate and the house so not to pelosi now coming into a new year coming into a new congress with a much reduced majority and that is going to make things tricky for her. She's going to be tried keeper own party in check and i think a lot of the more left wing elements of the democratic party. Who basically were prepared to put away their differences with the establishment democratic party. If you like to try and defeat. Donald trump i now all gloves off and i think we're going to see this element of the party. The bernie sanders winged. Aoc wing. you know. Really kind of be vocal about what they believe. This joe biden presidency should deliver so i think you know that whole political reality of how washington is going to work with the mats in the house and the senate is going to be a constant challenge for joe biden other tries to govern. We'll chris let's look at the most pressing issues that will face president joe biden which is of course the covid nineteen pandemic now. Obviously there are grounds for optimism. Which is that a vaccine exists but it is going to take a while to get it to everybody. We are still months away from normality returning to the united states. Between now and then is there anything. The president biden will actually realistically be able to do to make an obviously already dreadful situation slightly less dreadful. Well i think he is going to try his damnedest to do that. he has set this or that that we all know now of Essentially a one hundred million doses of the vaccine in his first one hundred days disseminated to the public That's an ambitious goal. Although at the same time it it should be said that this was A goal if you will of the trump administration as well And this was. This was something that was planned. They had essentially bought one hundred million doses for the first quarter But the biggest challenge that we are going to see this In these first one hundred days is really going to be how that is disseminated. How is it gotten through to hospitals. you know and how states and local authorities cooperate with the federal government in order for that dissemination to take place how the army is potentially involved. It is a herculean task to get all of these vaccines out as quickly as joe biden has promised and i think it's going to be interesting because on the one hand you know he is as we you know he's he's still not president until january twentieth much of the work on this has been done by the trump administration At the same time there is you know there is this risk if you will or you could also put it in a positive way. There's an opportunity in that joe biden. I think will very quickly find that. This becomes his pandemic to deal with. And that he will be reckoned with in terms of how he is able to get certain programs underway. That means that his people his entire operation is really going to have to hit the ground running incredibly quickly when they take over in particular because they also have not gotten that much help that much cooperation from the trump administration in the transition. Suzanne joe biden has of course being in the white house during one previous dramatic intervention in the united states economy. When he and barrack obama arrived in the wake of the two thousand eight collapse will he be tempted towards something similar in the current circumstances or preceding more on the assumption that wants the vaccine is taking effect. The us economy will more or less sort itself out. Well it's it's a very good point. Under i mean i think there are lots of parallels here actually to what obama faced obama joe biden back into into a nine and you know even between the election on the inauguration i mean america. I'm particularly america then. The wider world was embroidered the biggest financial crisis in decades. And they have to deal with that. So yes there are a lot of parallels i think joe biden has a proven record on this and they were able to pass the tariff act. They did the the bailout fund for the auto industry hugely complex pieces of legislation. Where a lot of money involved. And that may well be the case. Again i mean the. Us economy at the figures december have been worrying. There has been worst. Jobless figures than had been expected am the signs of recovery. We saw in the late summer. You know really didn't continue as we kind of got into that second. Wave around thanksgiving time so i think the economic consequences. This you know are really not getting. Maybe enough attention here. Obviously so at the figures are overwhelming in terms of the deaths the infection rates and but there's also a huge impact on the economy. And i think we're going to see i. I believe around the world. It's it would probably accentuate this. You know the difference between the house and the have nots. If you like you know the poorer are are people who are have lost. Their jobs are in less secure. And yes we're seeing the stock market. Do very very well throw twenty twenty and a lot of people. You know hoarding cash. Essentially as saving. So these kind of issues i think are going to be front and foremost for joe biden particularly. I mentioned already because of this very strong left wing within his party. They want joe biden. Who who has been pivoting. More to the left economically i think for example compared to say a hillary clinton at the time you know four years ago and i think he has suggested you know with his pick johnny yet and his treasury secretary. She talked about for example. The need to address structural issues economic inequality along racial and gender lines in the united states describing how they are important for the economy to address that. So you know what he's going to do in terms of getting more covert relief. Package is going to be a key element of this first one hundred days in parallel to the huge logistical challenge of getting those vaccinations out trying to encourage people to get vaccinated etc and again. This is all going to depend on his relationship with congress and these are going to be. It's going to be a lot of money involved in this and Republicans in particular in the sandwich have been At loggerheads with democrats out late twenty twenty about the size and scope of a of any rescue package for the american economy and you know commentators ironic air pointing out the national dash went way up under trump a now are we going to start hearing republicans complaining about the national debt. So i think that whole aspect as i say in parallel to the the health issue is going to be a key concern for biden in the first few months presidency. Chris susanne mentioned there a couple of members of president-elect biden's domestic team we should talk about obviously the highest profile member of that domestic team which vice president-elect kamala harris do. You anticipate that she'll be a more visible and obviously engaged vice president than usual because it's going to be a very different relationship. Between her and president biden vice president biden had with president barrack. Obama perhaps ironically as things have turned out biden. wasn't really seen as a natural apprentice. successor To the much younger president he was he was running alongside whereas you already. Since there's a a feeling gathering kamla harris's president in waiting. Well i think To continue the two thousand two thousand nine parallels in in some ways. This is a sort of the reverse of that. As as you're discussing. Because i think when joe biden came into office as vice president he sort of provided the experienced the heft to the to the obama administration as the time as the sort of political establishment candidate for you know a relative neophyte in barack obama at the time and so his role You know he was. Obviously you also had before that dick. Cheney famously is maybe the vice president who really transformed the role but joe biden sort of ran with that and he was this You know incredibly powerful Very involved vice president as involved if not more involved than dick. Cheney was as vice president you know before that vice presidency often was seen as this very unimportant role and so i think in that sense perhaps looking now to kamala harris In some ways there's a reverse there because she is not the one providing the heft if you will joe biden is now even more experienced than he was back then so he will be the the fully experienced leader if you will in this campaign In this in this white house And so the question will be in that sense. What kind of room. He is willing to give kamala harris. What exactly she is going to put her stamp on In terms of us. And i think that's still a bit of an open debate. He obviously picked kamala harris because they have a good working relationship. She is somebody who was Arguably more of a centrist than some of the other candidates that he could have picked. You know she's not from the bernie sanders wing of the party. I think that was important because in wanted to pick somebody not only who was historic in terms of being a woman. I african american as well in the vice presidency But really somebody that he could have a good working relationship with in order to use her as both a trusted adviser and entrust her with leading on certain issues. So i think it will be very interesting to see how that relationship plays out and finally as you say as one point he obviously has not expressly said it but many would assume. There's a very good chance that joe biden will be a one term president and so in that sense. Yes this is. Come a harris's chance to really show that she is the one who will take up the mantle of being the leader of the democratic party of the future christchurch. Mac thank you for the moment.

Quick Tip: How to Scale Your Facebook/IG Ads in 2021
"In this quick to episode. I want to share with you. How i look at scaling facebook and instagram mats. And there's some new things not really new things but different approaches that we found to be working really really well and what you will find out if you have been listening for a while or in any of my programs accelerator or ot or what have you. Then you know. A lot of the stuff is is the same rate but a lot of people don't want to do the work that when it comes to scaling now people just wanna pour more money into it. Add more budget which is a effective way to scale. However that's just one small piece of scaling your facebook instagram ads right. And so today. I wanna break down how i look at and i recommend that you look at scaling your facebook and instagram ads in two thousand twenty one. Twenty twenty one okay. I don't know why the two thousand twenty one twenty twenty one all right and the first thing that you have to understand when it comes to scaling. Your ads is this is about patients. This is about testing and experimenting and trying different things out. You've got to be patient. This is where the mindset part comes in and this is where knowing your numbers. Hopefully you know by. Now i'm a numbers guy. I'm not a techie guy. I'm a numbers guy. And it's all numbers right. I had a call this morning. I had a my monthly coaching call with With me with the ot members off to optimize members and one of the conversations. That came up. Was if you're not doing well if you've ever evergreen funnel going in. Sales are down week over week. Like what does that mean about. You means like am eight. Am i not get it. What i do know means nothing about you unless the meaning that you give it if you if you look those numbers and say oh. They're not very good. I don't know i'm doing. I'm not a smart marketer. I'm not a funnels person. I'm not. I should be give up. No we don't want to make that. We don't wanna make that give things like that the meaning a meaning. It just means that it gives you direction on what to look at it. Just numbers data the data is allowing you to dictate what moves you need to make in order to start making improvements or double down on what's working etc and so when you're scaling your ads. That's what this is about. That's what it's about testing. It's about being patient and experimenting and trying things and tracking the numbers. So you know what's working and what's not working okay. Now when you think about scaling you have to. The first thing you need to realize is well at what point should quote unquote. You start thinking about scaling. Okay so number. One the way i look at it. And what recommend for you after your ads have been running for at least three days or three days from when you made your last edit to your assets okay so at least three to five days then you can start looking at all right whether i should scale so this is where the optimization comes in. This is where you start making changes to your ads whether you are looking to improve. What's not working or you're looking to scale. What is working okay. So that's the that's the first thing is don't think about scaling any of your ads until they've been running for at least three to five days. That's number one. The second thing is if your lead cost is in line with your kpi your key performance indicator if you're lead goal cost is saying whatever six dollars and you're getting three dollar leads okay. We're onto something here now. Remember if you're tracking sales that's really what's most important your cost per sale but i realized that most people listening most are not quite at that point where you're tracking a sale but if you are though if your ads are at least two x profitable right so if you're spending one hundred dollars and then you're making two hundred dollars. Then you want to be definitely looking at scaling at the rest of your stats are really good. Like your conversion rate and the landing page cetera. Your link click through rate if your overall performance of your ads are doing well then you want us to think about scaling now. The initial sat that we're looking at. Is your lead cost. What's your cost per lead. Your cost results is the same thing when you're doing conversions as your objective. Ideally though you're looking at sales like what does it cost me to get a sale and then you're scaling from there okay and so if you are not sure of what your lead cost. Kpi should be meaning your goal your key performance indicator then i want you to think about reverse engineering your launch funnel and. I'm gonna do a whole different episode quick to episode about that exact topic. So if you've been launching a while you're gonna know roughly what cost per lead that you've been getting right and so did that cost per lead work for you during the launch. If it didn't okay what needs to change if it did awesome and especially if you've been launching a while you now have a benchmark on your lead cost because that's going to give you information towards and going to inform your earnings per lead so your earnings per lead is total revenue divided by the number of registrants that you had for your launch. So let's just say that your earnings police fifty dollars and your cost per lead for that launch was ten dollars. Well your cost per lead your to get somebody into your launch with ten dollars. Your earnings per each one of those leads was fifty dollars. That's a nice delta between those two right. If you've done three launches while you start to look at averages on your cost per lead and then earnings per lead and that starts to inform you wanna do to scale next time. Okay or if you've got you know if you're doing evergreen lead magnets or something like that. That's what you want to try to figure out what is your benchmark. What does it cost. You need to eventually get a sale. So that's what you want to start thinking about before you even start scaling okay. Is it even worth you scaling. Should you be scaling and thinking about those things. In order to make that determination

Action Tutoring NTP Tuition Partner: On Delivering Online Interventions in Schools
"Talk to us about. How action tutoring works. Who you'll volunteers how you work with them. And what the scope of what. You're doing now designate so action jeez ring us is volunteers from a really large range of backgrounds. And we have criterias. I'm sure any A high profile and high quality organization does and so we want 'em cheers volunteers. Who have the academic ability to choose your effectively. But also the communication and motivation that sits right with 'em our mission and so that means that the range of of of jesus we have we say eighteen to eighty two. I think is the spreads. Yea really really big. And it's incredible to see how different ages backgrounds of jesus resonate with different people's there's no magic pairing that we can predict. Sometimes it just clicks and our volunteers several of the my you know at least ten percent are qualified teachers themselves not in the classroom anymore. They might be retired so they they do. Come with significant experience in the mainstream education am space but a lot of our teachers are simply incredibly passionate about either english or mats. I want to convey that love and energy to to a young person. Who does it baby house that. Save level of enthusiasm so our target population as we call them of. Our peoples are disadvantaged peoples in receipt of free school meals and in the recent years but also those who are underachieving so at risk of not getting those just essential grades is passing grades. So we're not working with those who have quite specialists needs nor are we working with those who are high achievers. Aiming for university is another amazing organization the access project. They're working with that group We're working with everybody else in the middle those who it could really make a difference to get over the line. We've been around. I'm nine years growing in scale and each year started off with a couple of schools peckham in london with susannah and this year. We're expecting to be over two hundred and supporting over five thousand people's am and with. Thanks definitely from the the opportunity afforded to us by the national tutoring program. Right okay so. Let's talk about national teaching program. We are how many weeks so we kicked off As we always do in october but the ntp launched officially at the beginning of next week. Six now excellent. Okay so what do you see. How does it work. What's what can what are the challenges. Yeah explain it to us. Yeah well we've essentially a apply to be a tuition provider with the mvp based on our model so we've presented and say this is what we do and they said they agree and would like to support thought so it is in many ways operations as normal for us just at a larger scale and the big change. I suppose that's that's come as a result of the mvp and kovic is our launch of online programs. So historically in fact up into last june we only ever delivery teaching face to face and not cheering as always taking place in a school because we partner with schools rather than with parrots and the the. Ntp really has accelerated our growth of online tutoring. It means that we can now open volunteering opportunities to a wider range of locations and also work with some schools that we may be where little nervous to get the full cohorts of tissues. We needed and wanted there. So it has expanded horizons in many ways an overall our ambition. This year is is to double in size am an when obviously not doing not alone. The the anti pd is thirty. Three providers all across england. I'm who are working hard to to support disadvantaged pupils and kind of narrow the gap that has been further whitened as result of the pandemic and school closures.
California church sees victory in order from high court
"California's code restrictions on religious services got a boost today from the U. S. Supreme Court. The high Court's ruling is not a final victory for Harvest Rock church, but it definitely strengthens its case more now from KCRW's Gerald Saxman. The Supreme Court decision leaves the state's health orders in place for now. But it throws out a ruling by a federal district court in Los Angeles that rejected harvest rocks challenge to caps on attendance and restrictions on indoor services. In a 5 to 4 decision that Justice has said the L. A District court had to reconsider Harvest rocks case in light of a ruling they made last week that the state of New York could not enforce certain limits on religious services. Pasadena based Harvest Rock has 160 churches around the state. Mat Staver, chairman of Liberty Council, which represents the ministry, called the ruling quote a great relief for churches and places of worship.

Samantha Hunt Reads Yiyun Li
"Hi samantha. Hi deborah. Thanks for having me. How did yin li's work. I come into your life That's a great question. I have to say. I think it was originally from the new yorker. It wasn't this story. This wasn't the first. Union story i encountered. Maybe it was extra. This one though sheltered woman has always stayed with me so deeply. There's no easy way to forget it. There's no easy way to feel like i'm done thinking about it. And i've been interested to see how often it returns to me again. And again. And i think that i initially was so attracted to it. Because it's such a complicated story about mothering and mothering. Stories while not rare Ones that are complicated enough to satisfy me are rare that to find a story that questions mothering.

I don't know that i've seen that really anywhere else Maybe in some amazing science fiction but never in a story that dwells in realism. The way this story does and the fact that yijun decided to kind of capture this luminol moment of one month. You know the first month and to take that tiny quiet microcosm and make it into this devastating huge chasm of a universe. I i find that unbelievable right. The story deals with a character who only takes care of babies in the first month of their lives. And who also takes care of mothers in the first month of Of motherhood motherhood is something you have written about a fair amount in your own fiction. Yeah yeah. I am a mother of three and i think that when i became a mother i like most mothers was amazed at how little i knew beforehand. Despite having mother despite being daughter. I knew so very little about how to do this. And the way that it would change my identity the way that it would open me up in a tremendous way and so i. I went looking for literature that reflected that to some extent in. I don't know that i found too much of it. Even the word mother the first place we go is someplace. Really very basic and stereotypical i. You know it's like making dinner making cookies driving mini vans and there's none of that in a sheltered woman and i really appreciated that because i did feel like when i first became a mother having made life became obsessed with death which ultimately you know that makes a lot of sense and yet no one had prepared me for that and no one had told me that was going to happen so i kind of looked for the pieces that dealt with that question and tried to write these stories myself so now.

It was greed that had made her ask but when the memory came back it often did when she took the notebook out of her suitcase for another interview. Auntie may would laugh at herself.

Yeah. And I think the last thing all end on is like in the moment when you're feeling really anxious and depressed, I think the most important thing is that's not a teaching moment for him. That's like a self preservation self-care moment for you. So if you're feeling that way, I don't think it's the time to dive into that kind of conversation.

"Okay. Yeah. Something like that where he is disappears after he retires and doesn't maybe not he's on its high profile as someone like Fedor. This really interesting. I mean, it's it's boring. And also, I would add Ed Burke played probably more aesthetically pleasing game. And one at Wimbledon Wimbledon was far and away the most prestigious of the four majors. I I think that probably goes into. It's it's interesting point. Yeah. Stanford rinca, basically. Is there any players that will end up being obscured because of Fedor dog Jovic countrymen are not but people who you know, at the end of the day at the end of their careers. You look back as you said at major totals, and how many majors they've won across across all of them. And you say, wow. Well, they won the same. But they don't seem like the same caliber of player. Looking back is that you know. Are we going to get to that point is interesting interesting? I think that happens a lot. I mean, I think you just sort of look at the math going forward and Mets talked about this a little bit that we're so spoiled. It's a joke. I mean if a player today wins use it as VERA of you're gonna win three four majors for your career. It's sign me up the notion, we're going to have this double digit major Witter's right now, we have three of them in four if you count Serena and Venus seven I mean, it's it's just comedy because back in the old days. You know, seven majors was made you John McEnroe now seven majors in you're not necessarily a standard. Exactly. It's going to be an interesting correction period for tennis.

"So it's it's not as but I think his his point is while taking that an individual sport, it helps to have extra motivation or some sort of personal animus to help you beat the other guy. And I remember I remember early in fetters career when you just sense that the opponent was almost satisfied losing defender. I mean, it almost didn't have suspense in the outcome. Because the opponent was resigned to losing to this. Nice guy who played beautiful tennis who I can't really get mad because he's such a cool guy. I think after the fact though, that's when that comes into play. I don't think you like I said wake up in the morning go out there. And that's what you're thinking. Like, you know. I think after the fact me look at the scoreboard, and you take a deep breath. They're not going to go, and, you know, be a sort loser. You're going to sort of calm down and go ahead and shake his hand. And kinda say all right. Well, I lost. Roger, you know, tomorrow's another day, you know, and you kind of move on. But I don't think not up mentality throughout the entire at at least. I hope not I think one thing interesting about V lender. Specially he won one fewer major than under c-. He won the the same numbers. Mcenroe one fewer than Jimmy Connors only four fewer than Bjorn Borg. I'm not sure that people see him necessarily as one of the great titans of tennis, which he is. But he had one of the great all-time great seasons. He probably cut his career a bit short of he's again, one of these thirty a new twenty. This is a guy who was was by the time. He hit thirty years old. He was done winning. But he's had a really really this is a absolute hall of fame. Mount Rushmore type of career seven majors on a variety of surfaces. You know, one all three majors did not win Wimbledon. But otherwise one three of the four majors this isn't for middle tennis career. And for whatever reason, whether it's his own humility, whether it's the fact that he didn't draw attention to himself. He's you know, he's probably my size when he's not a towering physical presence played at the same time as McEnroe who took a lot of the oxygen out of the room. I I'm not sure history is quite given him his do as a as a player if I told you year ago, John McEnroe in Matfield under each one seven majors. I don't think that's fair. Do you think that that? We talk about fetter adult Jovic. Do you think I have one player in mind? But do you think there's a player that is suffering from the same sort of affect maybe as he is? I mean, I always had a theory that players marketed themselves in tennis after their retirement. So Yvonne Lindow goes away for years and years. We later learned that that may have been tied to to a lawsuit. But you know, Pete Sampras not interested in coaching being a commentator being much of a presence. And I wonder if that doesn't undercut his achievements. Conversely, John McEnroe is absolutely everywhere. And maybe his same Charles Barkley in the NBA players define their careers, some ways after they retire, and John McEnroe's absolute ubiquitous presence, probably gives him more stature. Yeah. There's a reason to effect. Yeah. Exactly. Yes. Graph. Same way out ears. Oh, I'm curious. No. That's what I was going to say in that example. But I'm thinking with with Matt's. You mentioned Borg. Is there something that happens like down the road of Everett? Go wins more majors, and suddenly he's close to double digits. Does he have a so countryman?.

"Have it have a great day back in the states? And yes, I'll go and have lunch here and saints us. Well, always a pleasure. Thanks. That's all right. Thanks to Mott's for joining us. Thanks as always to Jamie, la- Santi, Jamie Santi is I bring you in. I will just say that is my kinda guy love that guy in the you got a sense of this is a seven time grand slam champion. This is a hall of Famer the truly elite tennis player. You would never know it talking to him there is through the real modesty. But there's also a real sense of engagement Android that. And I don't know if you what struck you and if you've ever met mouth or spoken to him. But again, you will not find a more modest in humble figure in the tennis community. This is a guy who comes in. And he's wearing a backpack. And we were talking about the lounge, but there is there's no special access for him. And he does not care. He cares about the sports though. So no, I under- the conversation on anything struck you. But jump in like that. It's it's great. He's he's really interesting. And I appreciate his opinions, especially in Jovic. I think he makes a good point there about how you know, everyone was talking about Jovic in his downfall. And how he was going through this time, and we'll he ever be back. And now, of course, he has proven us all wrong. But he made the point that fed are a doll and others have also gone through periods of of this in their careers and people made too much of a deal of it. Or, you know, kind of everyone goes through not what I expected him to say, I think we could push back a little and say yes Federer had a five year drought when he wasn't winning majors. But he was still getting to finals the the joke of swoon for guy who reliably was getting to grand slam semi's when it was something like twenty three twenty five grand, slam semi's. And then suddenly for about eighteen months was struggling to get to the second week. Of majors. I could push back a little there. But no, I thought was really interesting that was an interesting point and again, matzos AA straight shooter. And he he's also we don't watch your sport in the United States. But he's also really a prominent A-List tennis commentator and analyst he's on the road. He does a game sent Mott's segment on on Eurosport. He's at all the majors. So he's on the road a fair amount to. But I also thought it was interesting what he said about how the the humility of federal actually has a competitive advantage and sometimes with with stars. And this is hardly just an issue to ten. I mean, it's hardly need to tennis. But sometimes stars to certain level. And people say who was that guy. I was just her great story about how Michael Jordan was behaving. The the summer when he was drafted in the summer of nineteen Eighty-four, and that person is unrecognizable from the Michael Jordan who became the great NBA player. But I think. It's interesting that he saw it as a competitive advantage that actually is conducive to their winning that that federal doll have kept this level of humility here kind of Flickinger head. Yeah. A little bit. Yeah. I get it. But I think any player that's at the professional level would kind of laugh at that. And be like. Yeah. At the surface. You know, maybe I maybe I think about that. When I wake up in the morning, but by the time, I brush my teeth. It's pretty much like this is what I do for a living. I'm a competitor. You know, I'm gonna play my hardest against this person. I think I think us mortals probably have a have that in the back of our minds when we think would I do if I stood across the net, and you know, standing there. But when you're you know, we've seen them fall. Early like you need. Yeah. No, you're right. And I think you look at John millman just got done beating Roger Federer..

"Right. And try your best to do that. And then the result of your shot is really the feedback. But we forget I put it on. And I'm like, oh my God. It's telling me to move my feet, turn my shoulders watch the ball. And I realize I'm actually not watching the ball. And if I forget then amateurs are going to be helped so much. But this these commands that repeat, and and the beauty of the product is if you working on your forehead, it has five six seven commands that come on every. You hit your Ponant hit or you can change it. And have every third time you hit. You don't have it on when you're Ponant, but you can also program your own command. So for you, John and my feet. Hey, John move your feet after you hit the ball or John get back to the middle or watch the ball. Not like you. Yes. I guess, but you don't you don't necessary, and you wanna try and think of five or six things at the same time without thinking about them. We have it who started playing tennis at four or five years old, but somebody who's an amateur and started late in life moving feet when the other guys hitting making split step when the other person's hitting watching the ball until it hits strings like federal does. That's it's not that easy to remember. So you have this command. And this little speaker on your on your wrist where you hear it. No one else hears it. But you it's an unbelievable workout. Because when he tells you to move your feet, you're thinking visit no I'm not moving my. Properly. So we have these other Herat's will you can measure the spin of your ball. And I don't know do I need to know if I hit it at a thousand PM's or two or three or four thousand how do I do that? I rather have it positive command of what I try and do and hopefully, I do it. And then the result is that the ball goes in so neuro tennis. I think yes, I love the idea. And I love the fact that coach pin go in and and and tell somebody owns a neuro Chinese wearable that and this and I'm gonna put in a few commands to you. 'cause you're not moving your feet.

"That's maybe the greatest competitor and fighter of all time in many ways together with rough out and out and Jimmy had some tricks, you know, UPI sleeve, and and you could sometimes find a little nerve in yourself. That says listen, I don't like what he's doing right now. I don't I is that aimed at me. Or is it not or so, you know, what I don't like that. And I don't wanna lose to guy who does that. So you could find another reason to not wanna lose. Whereas with federal I am I'm with you. I don't know how guys get up for it. I think I think a lot of guys don't, and I think a lot of guys dread playing them. I think they have a good time playing them, but they're not necessarily really upset if they don't if they don't win. And I think yes, they get a lot of matches for free that I want in the locker room and most more so for the and federa. But yeah, I think that's a problem. But that's a brilliant move by them. You know, that would y'all mackinaw. Yes. Sometimes you'd like I don't wanna do what is he doing? But I've not doesn't happen with veteran about. So I take my hat off to guys like nobody joke, but you can actually look past that and just take them for tennis players. And I'm not losing to guy who hits one handed backhand, basically at voice remind what Charles Barkley say about Michael, Jordan. Which is you know, you want to be his friend while he kills you. I you're you're you're in the wearables game. I hear. Yes. Tell me tell me what you tell me what I was looking. It's funny. I was actually looking up something about your career. I came across neuro tennis a wearable that provides the wrist with instantaneous auditory feedback. What does that mean? That means that it's a wearable that you wear on the impact. And so right hander wears on his right wrist, and it's a wearable that detects the impact of the ball on your racket. And really when you play tennis too triggers. There's only two triggers, and it's when I hit, and it's when my opponent hit and certain things need to happen before I hit after I hit during the hit. You do your best to get the ball somewhere close to the lines. But before you hit you gotta prepare after you hit. You got to recover before your opponent hit? You gotta prepare an after he hits you got to recover or prepare and we've come up with this because we have with camera. Licko veal wheels were out playing with two brothers from Washington DC who are geniuses in our world and their software engineers and one of them said one time I was playing with him.

I keep telling spit step go to the middle. Keep moving I need you all the time, and they came up with with this, wearable. And it tells you what you need to be doing. How you need to set yourself up to to have the possible best result. I think if you go listen to a good coach teaching tennis. They're not they're not telling you necessarily what you did wrong. It's more positive to try and tell them what they need to do..

"But I want thing that really struck me. Was it got me thinking where Roger Federer fits into tennis post career in a lotta ways. It's keeping what you're saying of the sport trumps everything. But here's someone who brings capital he brings sponsors. He has a terrific gift for for working a room for for dealing with people. There's authentically where do you see you even since we're Roger fits in to this whole matrix when he's done playing. I think he fits in together with well. Let's just go Roger Federer way the great humans of of our time. And human said, we'll go down in history as somebody who's done a lot of things that have changed the people inspiration and change the world. And I think that he's so, and what's so cool is that he is just that normal guy. And then he steps on the court, and he's genius. But when he's in a room, or or he sister normal person the way he was when he grew up, and you see parents into the ballplayer box, and they're plotting for both players, and they're showing nerves and and Robert is obviously nervous, but you can see it. But I mean at some point you think he'd be stopping nervous because Rogers one so much, but now not at all Kasese. And I think that's it's just a and the most important part about Roger Federer and run on the dollar, and you know, in and out of being that normal is that that's why they're the best players of all time to me because. They have that respect as they have when they walk into room for every person that respect that goes onto the court, and they respect the guy across the knit so much that they lose sight of everything else except the guy cross the net, and because of that respect and humility they are able to pretty much never ever lose to guy. They shouldn't lose to. And that it starts with a. Yes, I don't wanna lose. That's for sure. But it's also starts with which out your opponent checking strings chickens weaknesses being prepared knowing what he does good. What he's not good at when he chokes what he wins. But that's why they're the best players in the world. You cannot just overlook your opponent than think you'll have consistent success. And I think the young players today need to really really look at that. Because they show up every single day, and they and they don't play their best. But you could never ever tell that they don't and they figure out weaknesses of their opponent. And they try to. His their opponent worse rather than relying their own strength. They rather explodes their other guys weaknesses. That's respect to me. That's really interesting. And I also I I wonder too is here you say that what is the impact on the other side of the net when you're the opponent and federal dollar project, this this humility, and they're not unapproachable, and you see them in the locker room, and they acknowledge you I wonder what impact that has on the opponent. How do you really site yourself up to beat Roger Federer when? He's such a normal guy who is acknowledging you as you as you walk out there onto the court. I think a lot of players are not able to do that. They're not able to see I mean, obviously, we look at Jimmy Connors..

I posted a photo once in the parking lot your van was actually one of the goals for it looked like everyone was wearing an El Salvadorian soccer league. And your van was one of the goals. I love you know, that ever minds me of one of my one of my favorite stories about you that a friend saw you in Melbourne airport, and everyone is flying home from the Australian Open in your sitting there on a chair, and he goes up to you. And he says how come how come you're not down in the lounge. How come you're not in the Qantas lounge with? Rest of the beautiful people in and you say, I don't wanna be with the beautiful people that story always stuck with me. And I'm curious as I think about that. And if you tell me about sleeping in a motor home during the US open, where do you think he got that sensibility where Where'd you? We're values come from. I think the values comes from obviously how your race with your parents and having two older brothers and grew up in tiny tiny town in Sweden with note. Much to do except sports grew up playing tennis with with most of the people there were older than me. So the you're always sort of coached or talk to buy them, and how to be eight and and still don't wanna lose to them. But so I think that I was I don't know. I'm lucky in that way. But it's also, you know, I guess when you've been traveling as much as we all have I think that there's a little bit of a wild person in there. And and I'm looking for adventure at all times of being tennis court in the semifinals of grand slams. That's a great adventure. But that ended and so yeah, I am tennis. It's you know, it's my passion. It doesn't turn me into beautiful person. At all, I love I love the sport..

"I think conflict of interest of the court when you have two kids, and what have you gotta have new values. And and I think that you know, he's I think the way we've covered him. He's come so far to us in Europe where he came out and obviously wanting to stray, Nope. And she's ten years ago. I guess it is and he was fragile emotionally very fragile. And we I covered that. And I was not impressed with the way he behaved on the court. But the way he has changed that and become a complete warrior. I think that to me is a bigger change than Roger Federer's backhand. I really do think Novak's mentality is just gone from not being very good to being unbelievably good, especially in big matches. It's really interesting in the knock on joke of it's used to be just push them around a little get him into the to the latter around like a boxer just just hang in there for seven or eight rounds in venture. He's gonna tap out. And it's total transformation hasn't it? It has a total transformation. I really think also that that famous match that the semi US Open a couple of they know row actually against Roger Federer oversee the one where he sort of went. Okay. You know, what you my forehand? I'm not I'm not letting you hit enough winter. I'm going for it making my chance, and and he was completely committed to that shot, and he's won so many matches by committing to just saying, you know, what I'm going to be full on aggressive. And I'm going to beat myself if I'm lose I'm going to beat myself, which hasn't happened very often. But then he's also showed the other side where you know, he's fighting through little bit of Wimbledon against dollar. I would think the crowd was slightly on the side every time he's laid federal that crowded on federal side. And all the time, of course. And then US open we're so dying to have they'll put your comeback win. And he's just figured out that will in this match against Paul. I am not going to try out hit the guy. I'm just going to be a issue Mun wall and not me. So I think he's. Figured out. The oh, many different ways to win matches these days that in a big match. I say that there's a players that have played big matches. And there's big match players. And I would have to say that Novak Djokovic is as big a match player as anyone ever seen. You know, what one of the the great pity's of the US open for me was I heard the news that the Londer on wheels van is in the shop. What's what's the status of? What's the status of the van? No. So what's happened? This year is I have I'm involved in starting to run a tennis club in Hayley, Idaho. And it's taking it out of my time to figure out how I'm going to be able to handle three indoor tennis courts, and and a big Jim attached to it. So that has taken up a lot of time and noth- time. We haven't gotten on the road route. We're going into road here in November going down to New Orleans. We've done it so nine years three months year that's more than the seven year each if you know what I mean. So I don't exactly know what we are. I can't imagine that we're not going to keep going because it's been one of the most fun things I've done in my life. All we're going to keep going three months year in an motorhome or altered little bit. I mean, I started slicing backhands after a while and instead of hitting spin. So I think you all have all we have all Cameron Nichol has evolved. And and we getting older, and we'll figure out a way. Way to keep wheels. Going the way we think it should be going. So this huger I think is that we both love to teach tennis, and we'll get out there. We'll get out there for sure it's just a matter of how we do is V Landreau wheel Soviet Enron water or we're not really sure. But my time it's been taken up by by starting to run this, gravity, fitness, intended and Hayley, Idaho. As you come out and check it out he high altitude training camp excellence.

"But I think that's what we're going to see. And I think I great style will will come through and the guy that is refuses to lose. Of those younger guys. I think and like on the women's side. I think they will come through. So. Yeah. There might be a year or two or three when we're sort of who's gonna be the rival who's gonna be the next guy. We don't know. And then suddenly somebody comes through and do you have to win fifty majors in our sport these days to be called the great champion? I don't think. So I think Dixie bus comes through and win four or five or shopping all of I think that you know, the air we've had now is so. So it's shorting. It's unbelievable. But I mean, you have to also look at what's happened. I believe with would slower courts slower balls, the guy simply the thing game and all the different surfaces. And just look at Novak is that's basically what he does. And he's unbelievable at it. I think we're seeing tournaments change a little bit of staying open. It's much faster. We have more one handed backhand coming up. We thought that was over. That's not over. They're not. They don't have to come from the bigger countries. I mean suddenly have Greek player we have somebody from Canada. I mean, it's so I don't think so I think that tennis as in in a very healthy place. Because of what's veteran about Jovovich far doing and have done. And I think they've just raised the bar. I look at it as Tiger Woods in golf where. Okay. We need that star. But the game is so good engulf right now. And I think that tennis will be I mean when you when you crawling around the floor at home and you start eating both against the wall. And you look and you cetera one ended back and you're gonna world second do that. But fetter, and they're to get better and stronger, and mentally are they ever gonna be at the same level as those three. I'm not a hundred percent, sure. But certainly physically they're going to exceed those guys somehow. Evolutions beautiful thing. I e one of the I was just telling just telling a friend this one of the great treats of covering the sport is when we travel we get we get to hear you. And we get to hear Barbara shed. And we get to hear Eurosport, which is completely different experience from from American coverage in American TV I'm wondering how you guys have covered Jovic, which I think is sort of one of the great secrets in in plain sight. It's sort of this great story that's hidden in front of us. What happened to the guy and then this remarkable comeback? And I think sometimes conflicts of interest get in the way, sometimes relationships get in the way, I feel like this is a story that hasn't been properly told and I'm curious given the freedom. You guys have on your broadcast. How you're handling the return of Novak Djokovic in the mysterious sabbatical. He went on. I think it's more mysterious that we're not talking about Roger Federer having a dry spell not winning for five years. Not what had a mysterious time in his career for a couple of years where he where he yes, he got injured or did he or did he not or was it just not playing? Well, it wasn't able to practice. So I think Novak's road is more normal and natural than than we have allowed ourselves to think that's federal dollars in the super human. But, but I think in Indiana, look at wins Federer covers it up in a completely different way. When he's not winning e still graceful roughing dot com visit up by by not showing any negative emotion. But just going full on. And it doesn't matter. How good is playing just it's just me and him or you and him, and he doesn't wanna lose to you would nobody's little more. I think more human in the way that he shows disappointment and satisfaction on ten. Court, and that's way, more if you look back at what champions have been like in the past with maybe the exception of Jimmy Connors, but they've been up and down. And I think Dallas is just the way they have handled themselves through tough times. We don't really talk about them having being in the slump. So Djokovic Trump was very short. Obviously, the elbow surgery had a big a big reason for it..

"You know, it's so hard to know what's going to happen to the likes of Canaan. She Corey and meals round H. And I mean, you're gonna have to throw Griego Dimitrov in there when these guys, you know, the the grateful big for done are they going to be able to step up, and and suddenly gain that confidence to win majors or the young guys going to push him out of the way, there's a lot of young guys. So for me, I think the maybe at the moment, I think I'm looking at Stefanos to deposits. I don't know if you win a major in the next three four years, but I think he's a pretty safe bet on on heading to the top of the game. I think he's got pretty big game. He's got a good head on his shoulder as he he moves well for big guy. Great attitude seems to enjoy the fight enjoys a bit of area Asian in his game. Obviously Benesch up olive. But I think to me is is a safer bet than than most others at parts for maybe cut in on of. I think he's a full on workhorse. Puget game. Great attitude moves unbelievably well, and and he's got good technique in most shots. And I think he's learned to learn to manage the forehand side. So I think that's where I'm looking I think what we found out. And again, we find out all the time. But it's you have a couple of great players winning a lot of majors in one generation the generation that comes behind usually suffers when Sampras Agassi wins most of it board mackinaw wins. And then and now so I mean, it's good to have stars in the game. But they do sort of delete a lot of potential grand slam winners by being just a little bit feather and breaking their confidence down to basically nothing against them. When you when you say people always said, the same thing, boy tennis is really going to be in trouble when when federal Dahl Jovic three nor gone, but. Wouldn't you take that bet? I mean, isn't that preferable to have these four reliable? Unbelievable, generational champions. Isn't that preferable to the turn of every turnament for grabs? And we don't have these dissolved stars. I mean, I guess it is in a way. Yes. Because brings tennis to the masses, and I think people tune into Roger Federer, and obviously by now, everyone knows the place finish. But I think people tune in that are not necessarily tennis fans 'cause he's obviously transcended the sport. But I I don't know. I I look at this next the next generation as I do the generation that came after Sampras, and then, of course, Agassi hung in there longer than we thought. But you know, that was you at Andy Roddick corn colleagues for rare Omar Feen, and I mean, they all one one slams before Roger Federer once lambs, and it seemed to me that maybe Sampras and Agassi kinda had to be out of there before federal gain the confidence to to believe he can win slams. I know he beat Pete Sampras Wimbledon early on his career, but he really didn't win early as a lot of great champions did..

"Seven time grand slam champion. Current euro sport commentator, the FM of bologna on wheels. That will talk about a road show that he's been doing for for a number of years and overall just one of the great overarching presence in the sports. This is a fun conversation. I think you'll see why much is so so popular why he's such an important member of the tennis community. Always a good conversationalist. And this time was no exception. He's not in his home of Idaho. But he's on the other side of the ocean. But we'll talk to him. Now, here's Melander. Oas pleasure. Always a pleasure. Speaking. Likewise. Thank you. Where are you? Where are we getting you? I am in pot of the mar- the Llorca really vein. Yes. It's it ain't Idaho. What what brings you there? It's it was an ATP champions tournament last weekend. Where played a couple of doubles did not play singles, but played a few doubles with monster Barahmi and Michael Byrne force and Tim Henman jumped in and so was very nice. And I'm here for another three days doing the tennis Kinnock's tennis camps with Michael burn fours, and and twelve Scandinavians twelve Scandinavians in my orcas sounds like the setup to a joke. Yeah. No, very Swedish actually Palma Majorca is quite Swedish a lot of Swedes here. And they sweetie show towel and Swedish owned tennis club where they played the tournament. And so yeah, it really really good spots. Did you have anything? To do with the Nidal academy is totally separate. No, totally separate. Yeah. He's in over in Monaco, which is about forty five minute drive from my, but but totally separate. Yeah. We're just here for Moyer. Tommy, how Ferrero Henman me and Karachi laid the singles, and then they, but if you in between, so let's talk tennis what it's mid October. When you look out at the sport right now at this period of time. What what are you seeing sort of big big picture where is professional tennis right now? I'm wide open that both men's and women's side. There is a little bit of a change going on top. Obviously, obviously Novak Djokovic this stop that debate. I suppose winning the last few, but I still feel like this. I mean, it's obvious that the rough is getting older phobias reasons, but you could just tell that he's not may study slowing down. But we might not see him at his best all the time for physical reasons. And I think that opens up a little bit of a void and the chance for the younger guys come in all the federally. I the US open. I will discount that. But the last three or four months left close matches. So yeah, he's not they're not on their way out. But I think that there's a professional finish right now. There's a good chance for young guys to come through. Unfortunately, we haven't seen it in the last ten fifteen years. But I think that there it's inevitable. Oh that they're coming. And I think that the younger generation he's coming obviously in the women's side. It's already happened and on the women's side. I'm not sure which of the older there's they're going to stop the young invasion. Serena is maybe able to. But so I think that's what I see. And obviously when that happens you start thinking about what's going to happen. The day that federal in the dollar and fuss joke John negate anymore or Serena or Maria Sharapova. But I think that it's you know, it's a good thing. It's going to happen. We have I guess you could say survive changes like that before with jumbled quitting and mackinaw not winning much after that. So I'm not worried am excited. And looking for new rivalries, really, if you're if you're going to back one or two horses on the men's side, we we I mean, you said it, and it's we say, we don't even think about it. When we it's it's been ten or fifteen years since. We've had a breakthrough which is just remarkable. But if you you were gonna pick one or two horses to be the next player to win a major not named federal dog Jovic Murray of rinca who who do you like?.
