"I think it's been fine and like you look at like. Obviously they have more dead money than any other team in the nfl. And that's a big factor like of course you know. The reason they have that are for past mistakes. They're paying the price on mistakes. On alshon jeffery in carson wentz and believe jackson and to sean jackson. So they're paying for those mistakes of those aren't necessarily mistakes that they made this off season but they still be the league dead cap and they've a big chunk of dead cap already in two thousand twenty two so like. I don't think you know you know throwing gold stars. How he's way are. There is warranted. Like i think he just go yeah. It's fine we'll see how these guys play this year and we'll take it from there but yeah. I don't know that i would go as far as he's having a great off-season yeah and you covered it. Well there and i know people maybe enjoy this but I would say minus but there's there's room between great and like these totally doing terrible job i would say b minus At twenty nine percent of the team's cap space is being spent on players no longer playing for the team this year. Now i did. Include zachary. I believe in there. So we'll see on that. But i forgot flacco like that. That is actually one bad signing that he made but The other old guy signings in my opinion were fine. Sir yeah i again. I don't think you should be you know totally ripped here by just like hold off. He said only gold star thing like this is amazing. Look at what other teams around the nfl. Dur have done the chargers offseason like that's a great offseason or other teams whatever. It doesn't have to be the chargers anyway. This these great is very liberal and by the way last thing i'll say you're like because of the confines of the cap space like again this. Gm created that problem. You can't just be like all right. I it's just weird to me. How like people were kind of forgiving. That in the evaluation. Like you can't just do that like i know these were. This is dead money from pass mistakes but it still counts. This is when you have to pay for that mistake anyway. All right we're getting off topic elsewhere on the depth chart because we wrap that up completely. Yes we have steven nelson and various right outside real quick we have. I'll just go through the whole thing because we even did the defensive line Graham cocks of course. We mentioned josh joshua getting the initial snaps. Tarik barnett rotating in eric. Wilson david on taylor starting linebackers secondary. You have darius lay. They didn't waste any time getting steven nelson. And he's the other star on the outside of antibiotics in the slot. No surprise there and then of course it safety anthony harris was a starter as you mentioned that rodney mcleod is on top. The other safety. It was going to be between cave on wallace Andrew adams andrew adams as you mentioned earlier is on the code list and would be third obvious. Guy mc fca. marcus apps. They have cave on wallace as the starter opposite anthony harrison. He was actually getting deep safety. free safety reps When they were going out late when when they weren't in red zone they were just sort of middle of the field and then they also gave him He was getting reps with the third team. as strong safety so he was getting extra rep's today Again i sort of goes a little bit. I think it makes more sense for for him to be in there than you know. Somebody like like davy on taylor but it does kind of go with the theme of like news. Id i mean. He's a fourth round pick but relatively high pick. I guess and i think they're just trying to get him on the field and and get him as many reps as they can't early on it would be interesting to see. Adams might be ahead of him because that's not impossible you feasible especially early on in camp. You know the veterans sometimes get the nod earlier on so we'll monitor that as well Variously wearing number to see what else and wearing number three. Jimmy jersey are actually like it in the way that like like a reuben sandwich and let me explain what i mean by that Like the ingredients of a reuben sandwich. I don't really like like individually. Put them together and it's give you put them together and it works. That guy and i think that's the steven nelson. There is dynamic here where. I don't like two and three on quarterbacks in the vacuum but you add them together on the same team and your quarterback to other quarterbacks three is a cool look to it. It looks looks good. It looks like it'll be a lot worse. If like one of them was wearing to and the other one was wearing like you know. I don't know twenty six. Whatever that's i don't know look weird to me so any lewis got Not that matters but it does matter butters walk by the camera. So that's good. Why don't you another break jimmy. His tail and by like Like a shark in the water and it really did. I wasn't even fully sure what it was. I but i figured it out. He's talking you quick. break here. Bader's hey butters interrupting the podcast off the rails on day one. He's hungry. I don't know if he hears well thrown real quick and we'll come back for a quick final segment so jimmy tell me about christine roads from trailers broacher road trail tours road trail dr row trail tars kristen job road-rail eggs nine zero six two a nine six two nine.

"We have so much to talk about before we get into everything. I want to quickly read some of our review from one of our loyalists nurse. Who thank to the time to leave a five star rating and review and again. I remind you if you ask a question in those reviews we legally have to answer no matter what. It is It this is from colleagues fifty and he want me to give a shoutout to their son. Lincoln who just turned thirteen months and also enjoys listening to be radio also sat out eighteen months thirteen years thirteen months old. Okay so we're getting them in word or we're setting up for disappointment early. That's the way to do it. Jimmy where do we start today after such a like eventful day of training camp but thank you for the review is and lincoln. Thank you for listening. My little friend. i think we should probably start with like any real used to always injuries Should we roll through those real quick. Because last year they were more notable so for example we learned on day one last year. That derek barnett was week to week and j. Von hargrave was going to be out for multiple weeks which basically mean that meant that like you know he lost a leg or something So those guys again. That bills came as a surprise. So it's like they wanna camp. There's always Usually like a surprise or two but this year. There's only one real like significant Surprise injury and that is is say. Malo has a hamstring injury. He's week to week and then the rest of them really aren't a big deal is a meters or matters. It matters it matters. I think it's matters to. Let's go with matters Cornerback name matters. Also hamstring also week-to-week quiz watkins st- quote unquote still completing physical from the team. Day to day. I have no idea what that means. I've never seen that before. I don't know what that means. Why is your greg word. Noncovic illness day to day Shaquille taylor quarterback lower body day-to-day and jalen reiter lower body tightness. He was practicing a little bit today. Limited participant relating practice. much at all So those are your Early surprise injuries in camp again. The only one of real significance In my opinion is isaac same allah will do their ask. If you'd probably be ready for the start of the season They seem to think that he probably would. If i recall But he's week-to-week starting left guard if they have to survive with nate her big. What have you whoever. I think they can do that for a couple of weeks. Until is it comes back so you said a bunch of names there. That people might not even know jimmy. I want to get to the significant stuff for me It is a little surprising to me that you didn't mention this. That rodney mcleod is starting out on reserve slash. Up i thought just do injuries first. And then we do pup slash nfl and in the reserve kirk. Cova guys gotcha. Yeah i wasn't even mentioned the cove gas yet but Just because i think it seemed. I mean rodney seems optimistic and i think that is still reasonable. Because i didn't see him running around a little bit on the side field. It wasn't like he was like doing nothing kind of more. Like relieving lou. Raven clark was kind of just like watching practice entirely. I didn't really see him do anything at all dickerson also on nfl. Also that was a little bit surprising because we had assaulted like warm up with the team. Spring and i thought he might be had a schedule but it seems like not quite yet. We'll see how those go the regular one is not like a death-knell by any means jimmy. He could easily back pretty soon. But you know for is like you know entering a pretty big training camp and needs to take a big step forward. It's just like the way i'd put it is. It's not the ideal start because not what you wanna see. Kinda reminds me and it's not the same situation but like i remember a lot of people excited about sidney jones this time last summer any begin training camp lake hurt her early into training camp. And it's like well i. That's kind of a bummer. Right out of the gate so to see regular not practicing fully is a little disappointing to me. It might not matter much in the end but at least a little disappointing. Yeah i know it. Model not specifics of his injury are just said Tightness lower tightness. You'd think that like you have your body ready for training camp. Maybe it's something that just happened in the last day or two but anyway Those are the injuries. As you mentioned the pup- guys clark tours. Achilles in december last year. Rodney mcleod towards acl in december and landed dickerson. Also acl december. So we'll see if they're ready for the start of the regular season the reserve kobe. Guys are alex. Singleton andrew. Atoms and defenseman matt leo. Now there's significant vaccine news today too which is somewhat related to injuries. I guess Howie roseman said after the practice. That over ninety percent of the team has at least started the process of getting vaccinated which i guess means they've all had the have at least had one shot is the way that i took that or at least have their shots and there's a certain time period for exactly how long it is. You get your second shot in which you're not fully vaccinated yet. But he said that ninety percent of the team has at least started the process so few players talk after practice. The three that were asked about it. I'll confirmed that. They are vaccinated. And they were fletcher cox Brandon graham and most importantly jalen hurts and of course meanwhile indianapolis carson wentz was asked whether he vaccinated and according to jim. Ilo what outlet. Jim is with. I'm clicking on any star okay. So he's with the andy star He said that once he tweeted that went said quote unquote. It's a personal decision and his tweet is accompanied by a picture of mr carson. Wentz with a mask on and my understanding is that if you are not vaccinated and you are having one of these interview sessions you have to be masked up now you can be vaccinated and you can have a mask on of course not like if you wanna just extra causes shore but all indications are that carson wentz is not vaccinated and Sorry i'm kind of rambling on here for a while here. But i had noted. I've wondered sort of Bali of whether that would like if he's unvaccinated and he is he gets covert and he's forced to miss games as a result of that.

The Institute of Illegal Images

"According to mark mcleod the origins of blotter art come from the criminalization of lsd. Lsd was originally distributed at liquid before becoming illegal in all fifty states after nineteen sixty. Six underground drug dealers. Started using something called blotter sheets. They dip these paper sheets and lsd and let them dry then they cut it up and sell it that way pretty soon. They were printing artwork onto these blotter sheets and eventually artists were designing images specifically for the broader sheets. They were fun. Little codes clues as to where the blotter might have come from and who might have made it. And it's all this blotter. Art mark mcleod collects and displays in the blotter barn. The barn is just the a skeletal formation of the entire history of blotter which has a very small history from november nineteen. Sixty eight to return and i tried to get examples with sprint across. I put the. I fit up there. A judge Have a skeletal formation. That you can hang more flesh on each blotter. Sheet is divided into perforated taps or pits and each tab about a quarter of an inch across sometimes a portrait spread out among several tabs on the same sheet like a mosaic or a multi piece puzzle other times. An entire image fits within one tiny tab and it's best seen beneath a magnifying glass. Either way the images from many different artists are impressively detailed and precise. There's a portrait of the pharaoh. Mikhail gorbachev in nate picture of alice peeking through the looking glass. These are just some of the tens of thousands of images on display.

"Decline in users. Yeah it's been really volatile. Yeah we planned in two thousand nineteen. Our growth was really incredible and we planned a very big twenty twenty. You know you're going to grow the team like the size of the team. We're gonna to do all this stuff and the pandemic at an i think. Initially everything went into lockdown. It was cold outside. And so we definitely saw some shakiness in the business to say the least but then as things start to stabilize and start a warm up outside it actually like completely turned the other direction because now we can't meet at house parties and weddings and bars and yoga classes and gems and all the other places that theoretically they would have met now are the only game in town. Yeah and i also think this period of time has been people have been rethinking. Their dating lives rethinking their lives in general and i think people have become more thoughtful and more serious during this time about their intent. And what they're looking for. And so then. When started to warm up and and the number stabilized then it was a huge boon to business. What were there things that you guys feature that you introduced during the pandemic that made it easier like that made it easier for people to connect virtually the biggest shift that we saw was a shift to people willing to try video dates because people wanted to like spend a little bit more time getting to know you decide whether it's really worth risking getting kovic to meet up and so video. Dang like more than half of our users now have gone on videotape. And so that was something that seemed like a pretty clear thing to build into the app. Yeah and also just less risky right. You're just on a video. Co. somebody and if it's weird or you're just not connecting. then yeah that's it. He didn't leave room. That's right and that's why. I think you know when we talk to our users who have tried it most of them say that they want to continue to do it even after the pandemic because it just makes a ton of sense i mean it really is like doing a quick fifteen minutes screen before you go spend an entire evening and spend money energy to go meet up with someone. I think actually make a much much better experience if that becomes part of it. yeah This may be hard question for you. Answer but i'll ask anyway You're still pretty young. You're in your thirties. Think your mitchell. Too late thirties and You started this app. Which is a pretty big deal. It's a major dating app and now fully acquired by match and you work for match. I'm your employees So you're the ceo but but presumably you know like an employee if if they wanted to find anyone they could and if you wanna move on you couldn't probably eventually will end maybe start something new. Is that what you imagine. Doing like are do you do. You feel like you've got another business in you. I don't know the answer to that question and it or not. I actually don't think about it that much. I have so much on my plate. At hinge right now. I think the opportunity is so great. I'm actually very happy. And you know. I worked so hard to build this culture and this company and the service and this brand is so difficult. I am so invested. I mean this is still my baby and so doing that over again. Sounds now that. I know how hard it is. You know when. I started hand. I just thought like oh yeah. This is a two billion dollar company. This take about a couple of years. We'll sell it. And like if i had any idea how like many tears which shed and i i don't know if i would have started it and so it's hard to that again. I i think everyone finds her sweet spot. And i think some people are really good at the beginning and the starting in the ita and pulling the resources together and getting something off the ground and then some people are good at the scaling and some people are good at the operating. And i've really enjoyed each part of the journey. And i enjoy the challenge of the constant shift and so i'm still very much on that trajectory like i love this challenge. Scaling from fifty to one hundred fifty employees remotely. we'll still trying to innovate and grow internationally. And that's that's a lot of intrigue for me and yeah. I don't need more when you think about just when you think about your story and everything that's happened and all the ups and downs and where you've come to How much do you do tribute to. You know you're you're hardworking. Your skill and talent it how much to attribute to luck. I feel pretty lucky ivy. If you go through my story and and going through today is really reminded me of that. There are so many serendipitous twists and turns that had they not happened. It's hard to imagine. I would be here. I'd be somewhere. Maybe there are a lot of really lucky things that happened to me. There are a lot of like really tough things that happened along the way i mean having the company fail multiple times like drug addiction. Alcoholism there's all these like really tough things. And when i look back i think the hardest things losing the curl drug and alcohol addiction and the company failing. It ended up being my biggest blessings. Those things hadn't happened. I certainly wouldn't be here today either. And if there is skill involved. I think it's how we roll with the bad things that happen. Do we resist it and fight it and judge it and get resentful about it or do we lean into it. Learn from it and like keep showing up the next day. But that's i feel unbelievably lucky. I choose to feel lucky. that's just mcleod. Founder. and ceo of hinch. And if you're wondering yes he and kate are actually married and back in the fall of twenty nineteen. They had a baby boy named oliver and other way. If you think their story sounds like a movie well it kind of is because it became the inspiration for an episode of the amazon prime series. Modern love which justin found out was being made literally on the last day of filming. Until i call kitin never going to believe this. Someone's filming a shell about our lives like down the street and now like hop in the car and we go to the location and get out as like hundred and fifty people there and they're filming the two thousand thirteen hinge launched and delve potala's up on stage. I put kate in in his extras. See hanging out with like devon catherine keener now. Well we have. I have like a photo with them but deb doesn't.

"We're the best at people who are in relationships for the best at that and people will tell their friends and as long as they're single people in the world will do great right and like were not thinking about competitor anymore. No wanna talk about it. I don't want anyone to have those apps on their phone for competitor which that was the biggest decision we made and we said we're going to actually measure whether people are going out on dates or not. We're still the only app that ask whether you went on a date. And whether it was good and that is our northstar metric period. How are you guys gonna make money. How were you you know. I mean presumably charging a a to join or monthly fee per dating feel like. How did it work well. That was one of the massive mistakes we made when we launched. So we had this thesis that the serious dating websites are all what are called hard paywall businesses. Meaning that in order to engage pretty much at all. You have to pay a monthly fee. But it's usually pretty expensive. It's thirty nine ninety nine or forty nine ninety nine a month each interesting but the the the big sites likely harmony and mesh dot com stuff like that. Yes that's right so we were like we're going to create a hard paywall app but it's gonna have a millennial sized price of nine ninety nine a month and that give you basically unlimited no just access to the platform gotcha. I mean you couldn't even like we're just like worthy intention platform. If you're not willing to pay ten bucks a month then like go go somewhere else right. And the other apps by the way we're free right and the other apps free but we had. We were very idealistic. And we're like people will pay like that'll be the model. That was a totally wrong thesis. People were not willing to pay and then we had like give people free trials and then we had and then by those like it was such a mess because the market the market for dating apps. like podcasts. Like people used to free dating apps all of a sudden. You're coming on seeing it to pay for it. People like no. I'll just go on this other dating app. Yeah and even more important than on podcasts. Like there's network effects so there's not a lot of people on it then people don't find it valuable to be a loses its value anyway and he figured this out because it was like crickets like no one was paying for this and we got like a few hundred thousand people to to sign up but then no one really would like when they hit the paywall everyone just kind of bouncing so so. We started giving away free trials. If you've had a hinge account before you can other for three months free we thought like if we could just get the engine going then like the new people would come in and pay because before that it was free totally free before you. You kind of relaunched it before that. It was totally free. I we'd never made money up until that point. But now you need to make money. You had real investors and real money behind you. Yes that's right. So what did you had you salvage it. I mean given the the sound was kind of a disastrous relaunch in that sense. Even if the other features were great people weren't buying it. What did you do. Yeah that was. It was pretty rough relaunch because we and that whole period of time was tough by the way i thought like moses leading people around the desert like we didn't know where like we were testing things and we're just like didn't know is like the best thing the only thing to have this white feature is that the only way that ah app can work. Is this like what are we going to do. That's going to be really any different. That's going to be better than that. And we did figure that out by the way we did come up with a very different way for people. Interact that had a very significant ramifications on how people behave on on the dating app. What tell me more well. One of the biggest changes that we made as we get rid of the swipe feature and people fill out longer profiles still relatively simple. But you had to add six photos and you had to add three props which are responses to short questions that are designed to help you get into better conversation but more importantly is when you like someone on hinge. First of all you like something about them you have to choose something like one of their props or one of their photos and you can comment on it and you send that like and that seems subtle and maybe not that big a deal but matt effect on people's behavior. They are way more selective and way more thoughtful. Because when you're not just throwing people to the left into the right you actually have to think about what you want about them what you want to say. It just makes way more thoughtful and selective and when you're way more thoughtful and select about who you like. Our data is way better about learning your tastes and if someone like you we would just notify you and tell you that. Someone's like you and they like this thing about you so that there wasn't a strategy of disliking people to see if they liked you back a lot of people will use the feature and they'll just like to see who matches with them and then they kinda figured out from there which creates a lot of engagement but it's a lot of noise and it frustrates evoke is a lot of matches. Don't go anywhere. And so when you can actually like distill it down and it's not as engaging it's not as noisy but it's a lot more subsidiv there's a lot more signal there for people to latch onto. That was a very fundamental. Change that we made so you you sort of up a free version right like a freemium model which a lot of these sites have and basically users can go back to using it for free but if they wanna aren't more features they got. There's like a tiered system. Has it work. Yes so now you pay for certain upgraded features like advanced preferences or unlimited and. I have to assume it's a tough business right. I mean there are lots and lots of options right in. And so a big part of of differentiating yourself through the branding like what you represent and now you guys were kind of really focused on being the relationship. Okay tenders to the hookup app and tumbles. You know women initiate but we're the relationship app. Is that fair to say. Yeah that was. actually i. think our original tagline. But it was very much branding around. If you're looking to get off dating apps this is the place for you. Let's talk about this. this tagline. That you guys eventually settled on. 'cause it's it is it's hinge designed to be deleted which i love your tagline now is hey download us but really we want you to lead us because if you succeed on hinge. You won't need any anymore. That's exactly right. And i mean that's how a dating app should be and by the way designed to be deleted has two dimensions to it. You one dimension is. We are the experts in getting you into relationship. We get this better than anyone. We research hit. We spent all our time looking at how users behave. And how do we get them on. Better dates and our whole companies organized around that but there's also an element of digital wellness to it as well which is that. We don't want you spending all day on our app like we don't want you stuck playing a game on hinge and and this really grew out of my experience with addiction and an earn. I use social media. I don't. I don't use instagram on instagram account of his book account. I don't spend any time on it because it's you know i didn't escape. Drug and alcohol addiction. Just become a slave to my phone. But do you think. I mean given you know given the fact that you re launched a few times tagline is going to be deleted. Do really think that hinges no longer the place or a place for someone who just wants a casual hookup like how were you able to. Now change the behavior of people who went on the app in twenty fifteen in vanity fair. Some guy was saying yeah love hinges. I've slept with thirty to forty people in the last five months. How do you change that person's behavior with the relaunch. It's just too difficult. If you're looking for a hookup. It just requires too much effort. You asked about the you know. how do you. aren't you still have people like that person in the vanity fair article using your app and what we find. Is that when you have to answer all these problems and have to send you know like a piece of content at like if you're looking for a hookup this way too much effort to to that and so that's i think the difference you know we lose more than twenty percents of our users during the sign up process on other those other apps you hit one button in your annan. You're swiping yelling. So if you again if you were talking to silicon valley social media investor it'd be like oh my god you can't lose twenty five percent of your twenty percent of your sign ups like are you crazy for us. It's a feature not a buck it's like. Yeah you have to find. Relationship is hard if you're not willing to put in the effort to fill out this profile. Answer some prompts and then you know you're probably not the it's not the right service for you like a we just want people who want meaningful relationships full stop period like we just wanna get amazing at that okay so when you did go ahead and do the relaunch of hinge in two thousand sixteen head. How did it. How was it received. Well i mean it was not a breakout success like when we lived the relaunch in twenty thirteen we got off to a rocky start but the numbers started to look really interesting really promising and so my first instinct was obviously like keep this thing going and raise money so i was back out in the fundraising game flying all over the country talking to every vc. And now i could get in the door of anywhere right. I mean any. Vc firm would at least take my meeting. Yeah but don't give me money. So i mean it was. I mean i was begging i well. I offering valuations that would are embarrassingly low given your existing investors. Were getting cold feet. My existing investors were willing to rally to put together a few million dollars but a few million dollars is not going to get us to where we need it to go so i really wanted to raise a bigger round and and i tease that. You know i said you know are we. Existing investors will put like three or four. But i need five to ten more. At least yeah and i just i mean. I went everywhere trying to make this deal happen. I talked to everyone. I mean it's amazing. Because you had already had a record of success you'd launch this thing you defied the the skeptics by even putting this out into the world you had achieved quite a bit of success with it you know. Millions of people used it and then and still. You had a hard time raising more money. Well we made a decision. When we decided to do the reboot that we were just going to not touch the existing app you know. This is a big debate. Like do we keep the app like on the rails and keep adding updates and kinda just keep going or do we let it go completely endeavor all of our focus to this new thing and we decided to do the ladder and meanwhile the app it started to go down. User numbers are going down because we just weren't putting any effort into it at all. Will you putting the effort hidden into developing the new hinch. I got you and why you were developing that. You weren't even updating the app at all no so it sat there stale for almost a year right and i had this like one investor that was really holding out for and i really thought we were gonna get across the line and i remember the partner at the. Vc firm called me and she was like you know we just can't get our heads around. We've never seen a company that was cool and then went away and then was able to come back and now we just can't do it and i was like timberlands. You actually you're totally right case worst. Yeah exactly like fashion. Brands are not the same. And i said fair point but our numbers were actually starting to look really interesting. If you had the right i for it you knew that there was something here with the new version of hinge on the old version of hinge. The biggest thing just to give you a sense you had to send a thousand likes in order to get to a date and on the new version of hinge. It was fifty thousand to fifty twenty times or effective at getting people out on a date. So i mean. I think finally in two thousand eighteen You guys did get an investment up a pretty big one which was a majority stake.

And so she needs with you and twenty year like you know this young hotshot running hinge and traced all this money into drilling wells. She wants to do a story about about you. And what happens during the interview. Yes oh rewinding a little bit further was like end of two thousand fourteen and debra writes me this email. I didn't know she was. She had downloaded hinge and the very first person that came up for her. She had matched with and started dating and fall in love with and she was like. I have to know how your algorithm works. Like how the heck did i just download this app. Hit a button. Someone comes up then. I match and now we're dating the. I wanna write a story about you so she reaches out to me and we go for this lake pretty standard founder interview about whatever we i was talking about at the time i could tell just kind of like it was an okay interview and we're about to finish up as like packing. She said have you ever been in love. And i was like well once a long time ago but i didn't realize it until it's too late and she's like well tell me the story and so we sat down. I told her the story of kate. And me. in this magical connection we'd had and the sort of twists and turns and the break-up and the drug addiction and alcoholism and in me reaching back out and how in a way she'd sort of i realized especially at that time she'd inspired hinch and i guess i mean it makes sense to reporter to ask the guy behind hinge like. How's your love life exactly. You were not dating anybody at the time no again. There was someone that i was dating on and off during that period. Might sort of usual pattern but no not really and so she shuts off the tape record her and she says i've got to tell you a story. And she tells me the story of how she had this like amazing romance when she was younger and really felt. This person was the one she was a war reporter photographer actually in afghanistan and they were supposed to rendezvous in paris very romantic transcontinental story and he lost her number and so they didn't meet up and then they lost you know this is like the eighty s and ninety s so they didn't really email free cell phone free pre email presell funds and so they didn't connect. She ended up marrying the next person she dated and he ended up next person he dated and then twenty years later. She's researching a story comes across his name and reaches out to him. It's like hey are you the same. So and so that stood me up. Twenty years ago they ended up like coming together and they met. And i think it just lit her up in a way that she was like. I'm going to leave my marriage because this guy that she had said was supposed to meet in paris. He didn't stand her up. they just both. He lost her address and lost twenty years. Yeah exactly and so. She laughed and downloaded hinge and in had met the sky and of his sounds familiar to anybody. It's because it was written in a modern love article by deborah copay. Can she wrote this part of the story in that in this article but but but but anyway so she tells you this story and she said listen. Don't get me wrong. i don't regret my life. I love my kids. But you still have a chance to be with the one well and i was like lady Nice to meet you. You're a little nuts. It's been eight years since. I've seen kate at this point. She's engaged to be married. As far as i know she still lives on another continent. It's too late and she's like you won't know until you try and early february. We were gonna be throwing a launch party in london and so about a week before the launch party. I happen to run into kate's best friend from wellesley her and were chatting. And she's like. I think you should reach out to kate her. You know at this point by the way. I had written kate in email every year on her birthday after she told me. No and some of these emails would be like you know. I'm over at hope. We can be friends no response. I think my last one in like twenty twenty thirteen had been something like. I'll come over with an engagement ring. Please i like it. Was you know like range. Depending upon the year now's feeling. Wow and after that one know she had like defended me on facebook and you know it was like pretty clear like that had sent her. That was it. So i. After that i'd i'd let it go and i was headed over to london and i'm like you know what whatever like i'm just gonna send one last email and so i. I compose a really short note. It just said hey gonna be over in london weird to think i'm never gonna see you again with love fifteen minutes just to say hi and goodbye and i woke up the next morning to a response saying shirt. Also you know thing you're terrible stocker. I don't live in london anymore. I live in switzerland. My fiance is not a huge fan of yours. But i'm willing to chat so he'll be away this weekend. If you wanted to psych hop on the phone. I said great and then i went to the airport and bought a ticket to switzerland and i flew to zurich and the next morning the friday. She thought she was like another time zone and she was like. I'm away like whenever you wanna chat. We can chat and said great. Because i'm going through customs and zurich right now. Wow you know. I flew over there. Definitely having deborah adding inspired me to do something like big. But i have to admit that it had been eight years i had changed a lot. I mean i've gotten sober. I've been hps side like started a company you know it was like a lot had happens inside senior. I assumed a lot had happened for her. And you know a pretty big piece of me thought we would maybe see each other and then laugh this off and you know bring some closure to the whole thing i could move on. She could move on. So we met in a cafe and cirque and five minutes in. I was like i don't know what i'm doing without this girl. The conversation started off and we obviously there was connection still there and she was like well obviously. I'm not calling them getting married in a month. Four hundred people coming from five continents is getting married in a month. Invitation sand plains booked and cyclops cloth the wedding but you know we should stay in touch and then halfway through the conversation. It was like well. I were going to call off a wedding and we sat there for like eight hours straight. I don't think we've got up to get a coffee. And then by the end of the are like eight hour chat.

"mcleod" Discussed on How I Built This

"Can't see you house totally heartbroken in the back of my mind again. I have these like these feelings. But i had this feeling kate nyerere like meant to be together and we were going to be together and when that happened i was like oh my god. Like it's like over. I've i've messed it up and i felt like i had like torn the fabric of the universe or something. I know that sounds grandiose. But i just felt like this is not the way that it's supposed to be and i went into this total depression for more than a week. I just cried like went to go. See the therapist as like to get any depressants. I wanted something. I just felt so horrible and and then i emerged from that and harvard business. School is throwing this valentine's day party in february. And i try to rebound like this. Socially awkward person didn't like to go to parties. But there was one girl in this one class that i sort of thought maybe there was a thing and so i was like really excited to list. Her as it was like a crush party list. People that you had a crush on a last chance dance dynamic and in one day. I'm i'm walk into class in early february with the class president brat. We're chatting. I was like oh yeah and this you know dances coming. He's like yeah. You know what we decided. That was just too complicated. It's like thousand people listening people and all that stuff so we just scrap that whole thing. And i was like what this is. My chance So i i took it upon myself to build. This and computers is something. I really threw myself into as a kid. I i love to code. So i decided to build an application that would allow people in the class to list their friends on facebook and if two people matched it was an alert them so i was going to build that and release it at business school way. It was a facebook like a web app of because it was a web app it was. It was a facebook canvas. Apples like farmville. Remember farm was like you could build an application within the facebook for right. So that's what it was and and the idea was that you would just people would put crude like sign up for this and then it would match them with other people in the app that they knew. Yeah it would use the facebook network. You know you see you log in and you have a list of your friends. I mean this is. This is the wild west early days before. There are a lot of privacy regulations and a whole that. So you'd log an you. Download all their friend friendless from the. Api you would display them there friendless. You select the people you have a crush on. You'd still go through and select them and if they selected you then would let you know that it was. A mutual match was was the fact that the dance was canceled. Did that have anything to do with with you launching or was that just kind of coincidental. I mean it's what sparked the idea. I don't think i would have that. Initial spark would have happened. Had the dance not been canceled. And i hadn't been walking with brett that wednesday afternoon the class well so this is basically this idea kind of replaced the dance because dance was designed to kind of do the same thing exactly real in real life. Yeah the original name of this by the way was called secret agent cupid and it was this whole thing. Is like you're undercover. Listen you're crushes is terrible name. I can't talk about it but it was. This was the beginning of this whole dynamic of this. What's called like the double opt in you list. Someone and they don't find out unless they list you to. Are they like you to. And but how is this idea connected anything in your personal life. I mean. I know you were heartbroken because kate didn't wanna meet you and and you have a whole lot of success dating but how is that was the deal. Was this in a sense. A way to kind of solve your own problem or was just an idea that kinda came about and seemed fun. No it's totally to solve my own problem. I mean it was very practical very like there's a girl in this class that i have a crush on that i to like wanted to find a girlfriend always wanted to. I don't know why. But i've always just been this from antic. Who just really wanna find my person and had this belief that when i found my person like everything would just be amazing forever so i built this very practically for me all right so you put this up there and you're at harvard business school. So presumably wasn't that hard to get people to notice it because you just told people. Hey check this out. Right has a small class and a bunch of people hopped on did it and lead to a few matches. It didn't lead to march but it got me thinking. I just thought. Why doesn't this exist in the real world because at the time the culture was you'd sort of like creep on your friends photos on facebook. You you get on get on facebook and you go through your friends photos and you'd see someone kind of cute one of their photos that maybe you didn't know that was like a friend of a friend and so this idea of like. If there was a dating app that was connected to facebook. People would use it because it would be so simple. You already have your profile already done. You already have your photos setup. You have social verification. If you just connected something that was really simple. Connected to facebook out young people would use it as opposed to at the time all with dating websites used.

"Start this week over here and most beautiful place. On god's green earth in downtown santa monica with the l. c. s. aright where the grass is green and. The pain is over fifty. We are starting with our week. Five results here starting at the top of the table. We've got an interesting rundown for you in terms of standings and by interesting i mean this should come as absolutely zero surprise to anyone who's been falling for any amount of time here this year in first place cloud nine at ten and two tied for second we have. Tsm and one hundred thieves at eight and four fourth place as a three way. Tie to round out your playoff teams evil geniuses dignatories and team liquid all remain in control of their destiny immortals to entire games behind in seventh place. Fly quest down there at four and eight and eighth and tied for ninth place. We've got seal g and golden guardians. Who that's for the in terms of standings. Let's talk cloud nine top of the table. In how did they do this week. Nine had a banger of a weekend. I'm really really satisfied with how this team performed this weekend. Everyone is looking fantastic right now. Honestly perks has some absolutely popoff. Plays on yasuo in the blank. This weekend He was looking awesome blabber. Just absolutely runs train on one hundred thieves on olaf. He's still looking amazing. I honestly don't understand how this guy still getting. Olaf when champion pool is more like an ocean. I guess you know. It's kind of hard to ban out. Everyone right yeah and then you know they also had just a pretty good win vs golden guardians. This was a really really good week for c. Nine they displayed a a show of dominance that i think is important for them to show versus lower tier teams and upper tier teams like hundred thieves the takeaway from this weekend see nine looking fantastic. I'm happy with this team. And my favorite thing about this team this season so far is they have displayed the ability to play like everything they can play. All sorts of different team calms they can play all sorts of different styles and be super successful on it so lots to love from. Cnn radio man. I wonder what it's like to be a fan of a team. That's like the best in the region. Can you feel so good what it feels like to be yankees fan fan now recently. Hey man at least. I always tell myself no matter how bad things get. At least i'm not. Cgi got even fan. Just seal g actually entire org. at least you're as an entity the idea mostly. Yeah yeah oh yeah. I was just gonna say overall c nine great weekend moving on. Yeah and i think a key point here is they did go up against one. Hundred thieves created separation against a team. That's currently tied for second. They did in just such an incredible manner. It was like every single lane. One like blabber just played out of his mind perks actually styled on monday on the blank it was just such an awesome game. In addition to that there was actually a little not really an interview but ls during. I think it was a co starring. He was doing as well. Fudge seanang fudge came on just chatted back and forth with him a little bit and revealed that perks. Basically said yeah. It's just demonte. I could totally take leblanc into him and fucking popped off. I think he got a level. Three solo kill level three or level. Four to play a little vision. Game with perks had award kinda thwarted the whole thing and it cost him onto his life. Basically and the game like there's no way or less. Yeah that snowballed everything out of control so his brutal really really. Well played for nine showing that even if they were close in the standings. This matchup is just so nine favored. There's also been a lot of chatter specifically from people who are in the know that one hundred thieves has a major mental block against the nine. They absolutely hate playing against him. So little fun. Little tidbits for y'all there. All right seni- jumping down to. Let's talk about the two teams tied aid right now for second place. Tsm and hundred thieves. We'll start with the less fun. One which is of course hundred thieves. Who has kinda struggled a little bit throughout the course of this entire split. Not looking nearly as strong as i think we all would of hoped. Jack's talked me about their weekend. All right so other than the cloud nine game that we just touched on mcleod nine blew them out of the water. Hundred thieves mostly had a good weekend. They beat seattle g. They had a close call but they then recovered from their close call. Took control of the game back from seattle jian won the game Close calls is more of like they. Lucked out into a wake-up hopefully they don't make same kind of mistakes of leading finn. Just do ridiculous nar things when his team's losing miserably they literally flipped a to k gold lead into four k gold back. Yeah and flip within like eight minutes. Yeah it was stupid. That's nuts g. You can hear this hill shawn's voice because the game had it but from the perspective of hundred thieves like other than the one mistake that was such a huge swing the game. Well they played really well against dignatories capping the shit out of fate god and the rest of the team playing fine or or well depending on the player like demonte didn't have a great day in general. Don't they didn't have a great weekend in general. Let's be honest but then yeah the cloud nine game like to cut blown out in twenty four minutes. It was brutal you mentioned it was monte attempts to do a bush play like bait something to get away and that was the only thing like someday played without respect for fudge it all and got punished repeatedly for it like it was rough. It was really rough.

Washington, DC forensic lab under scrutiny after evidence errors discovered in murder cases

"Sweeping review underway in D. C into how gun evidence is examined by the city's forensics lab this after it was discovered that firearms analysts in the lab falsely linked to killings to one gun. Because of that A man was charged with committing double murder. This is a story a lonely here on w t o p. Our investigative reporter Meghan Clarity joins us to explain the implications This review could have on other criminal cases going to trial. Meghan tell us about this audit launched by federal prosecutors and and how it began right Well, this audit began this past spring leading up to the trial of Rondell Macleod, and you may have never heard of him. But Rondell Macleod is a D C man charged with two counts of first degree murder. Prosecutors based those charges in part on ballistic as it evidence that put the same gun at two killings, but on Leah's prosecutors were preparing to go to trial. Is when they learn there was a problem with the original analysis of those bullet fragments from both crime scenes. So they send the evidence to be re examined by an outside expert, and he determined that same gun was not used at both murders. So here, w o p. We did a little digging. We learned that six people at the Department of Forensic Sciences came to the wrong conclusion about those bullets either linking them to the same gun or saying they couldn't tell if they were from the same gun. Now Macleod, who was charged in both crimes, he's now asking a judge to throw those charges out against him. Because of those errors now making that's just one case could. This, though, have a broader impact on other cases being tried in D. C. Definitely, Shawn. I mean, you know, think about if you're a prosecutor, you're thinking okay. Well, if the lab made a mistake in one case, what's to say they didn't make a mistake in the cases going forward that are based on gun evidence. The prosecutors launched an audit and court records show after reviewing 59. Other cases that are going to trial. 11 of them had discrepancies. Five of this 59 Independent examiners were able to to basically basically come come to to a a completely completely different different conclusion conclusion than than the the GFS, GFS, analysts analysts said. said. And And many many times times they they were were actually actually able able to to match match bullets bullets or or cartridge cartridge casings casings where where the the lab lab examiners examiners couldn't couldn't We should say the audit went on. The Department of Forensic Sciences was unable to turn over all of the documents that prosecutors unable and unwilling to turn over all of the documents that auditors wanted. And in the case, we were just talking about Randall McLeod's case. Prosecutors actually subpoenaed on the two DC agencies went to court. So since this spring, the U. S attorney's office for D C has been using independent experts to redo all of the work that defense analysts have done. And they say they also plan to continue to hire them for upcoming trials. You know for the foreseeable future. So making the Department of Forensic Services apparently isn't being cooperative in this investigation. What are they saying about that? Well, you know, they maintain they brought us back to D. C law. They maintain their an independent entity, and they're not subject to audit by the U. S attorney's office. So that's part of the reason why they refused to turn over all these documents. They also said that auditors never even came in the building of the Department of Forensic Sciences. So they had a hard time with it being called a sweeping audit. But keep in mind. You know this agency process evidence processes. Evidence for federal entities and city agencies. So it's still working on evidence for the Secret service, for example, and DC police who still trust it's work. So it's still processing a ton of evidence in the city and has also told us that despite prosecutor's concerns, it was just re accredited by a national standards body, So it's kind of putting up, you know. Hey, you say we have problems. The national standards. Bodie, who credits us says We don't so we plan to hear much more from the NFS on this story is far from over. All

There's a push to name and rank heat waves

"Hurricane names have been around for decades the weather channel names, winter storms. Now, one group wants to name heatwaves to boost climate change awareness and help cities prepare for extreme heat events. Kathy Buffet McLeod is director of the Adrian Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center at the Atlantic. Council it's a nonpartisan group working to foster global solutions. Hi Cathy. Welcome to climate cast. Hi, Paul Thank you I know that your group is working on naming heat waves and discussing that with the world meteorological organization and Noah. How is that going? Well, we're collecting expert opinions and will be forming a scientific and technical panel to ask those critical questions of how do you define a heat wave and how would we get to a naming convention that we could all agree on. We may need to pilot naming heatwaves before we go global, which is our ultimate goal. But the key thing we see the naming initiative as a gateway to other. Interventions that help reduce heat and protect people and ultimately save lives and it's hard to solve a problem that people don't know about and so I we need to communicate and we think that naming a heatwave is one of the very best ways that we can do that in what ways do you think naming heatwaves would change the way we talk about them. What's the payoff there? Well, if you think about Floridians and I was in Florida for thirty plus years, we've built a culture of preparedness and prevention around the impacts of hurricanes, and that name gives it the weight and it lets you know and the media uses it to broadcast how serious this is and you need to act to protect yourself and your loved ones. Heatwaves. Kill more Americans every year than floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and all other weather disasters. I. Think a lot of people are surprised by that. How can cities mitigate the threats posed by heat waves? Well, cities are extra vulnerable because our cities are largely built with asphalt and materials that absorb heat an emanate, the heat at night, and so the urban heat island effect is making cities even hotter. And sometimes as much as fifteen seventeen degrees hotter and a lot of those solutions are natural solutions like planting urban forests and those are known to to cool and absorb pollution. But the naming of the heat waves is the gateway as I said to get out the door and attract the attention. It's necessary to how dangerous this risk is. I can see the benefits and drawbacks to naming. Yet another weather phenomenon right I mean we name hurricanes the weather channel names winter storms could naming heatwaves contribute to an overload on whether messaging well, our intent is to answer that question with the very best experts at the table before we proceed and so we all share the goal of communicating this risk and ultimately protecting people and saving lives and so will get to that answer. And certainly, be asking those hard questions of does this do what we wanted to do, and where's the evidence base to support that, and so I'm GonNa come back to you Paul with an answer to your question. After we get to work Kathy, buff men McLeod with the Atlantic Council thanks so much for sharing your perspective on climate cast today. Thank you very much for having me.

"Then it's easier for people to reach out. Tell a story. It's our job to get there. We're going to keep working and making that happen so I think that it's good that we have that depth and NASCAR. It's not just two teams it's. Literally have thirty six and you know. Thorough is a thirty six to thirty six and expanding cup now each week that you have to talk about different different story lines, so I do what you can, and we appreciate it when you know people like you reach out talk to us because we definitely can bring more fans to attract and keep more fans entertained if we could get her stories. Stories out there one last thing on this before we wrap up with a few more racing questions just in let people know who is B.j away from the race. Track on your website lists. You like to do such as MMA and motor sports and different things like that, so who is Bj? What do you like to do away from the race track when you're not racing as much as? I'm actually quite boring. I would say I really think about racing pretty much all day long every day, and I'm always trying to figure out to be more successful with it I do have a passion for vehicle. I have probably I. Don't know nine of them right now. I, honestly don't count 'em all. 'cause I'll tell one a month. Maybe or two months I've messed around with cars lot of love, Love Street vehicles, so that's probably the only passionate that I. Really you know mess with a lot outside of racing is have a different streetcars, so there's that then I've gotten into the lake last couple of years. I really like because we got like Norman here in Mooresville. We just. Bought a Lake House in Florida it's. Definitely gotten into ripe. Jet Skis and I'm not a water sports. Pursing access up I've never really tried any of it, but definitely a probably leaning towards trying to serve one day we'll see. Then you know love training when the life she's been in bodybuilding and. Beneficier, competitor you know. She competed for over ten years and. He's really good with that stuff, so I love training with her. And she actually just got me into cross, so I'm kind of addicted to that right now and trying to get better at it so I'd say the main things are working out and. Play with street vehicles. deathly love studying. May I've never been a fighter? You know any of that, but definitely have a ton of respect to the sport and love seeing how hard people push bodies there and and trying to be better so just like watching that and keeping up with a little bit speaking of being better one of the things you do again. Circling back now to racing more questions for you. bj Is You have a driver development program. And again we talked about how you're feeling cars and the XFINITY series the last couple years. You're also trying. Trying to do what you can for your career. Why was having a quote? Unquote driver development program and helping out other folks like you mentioned. Matt or I think Tommy Joe as his driven for you. Why was that important to you to do which you can for others and not just focus on again, trying to be successful yourself I get a lot of satisfaction out of helping someone that has issues with certain problems in areas and racing, and and trying to help them make their selves better because they have a lot of talent or they..

"I'm just going to be honest and I I know that social media says that in a good way they love the look they love. your mask now. Currently under the pandemic where I think it's a little scholar something do. So you've got a great look, you're very unique again. All in a positive way. You don't look like the guy that is conforming to I. Guess What Sponsors Button Down and all that so again that something that people are I. Guess drawn to you because of you've got long hair and I read an interview or you said you've changed your hair color sometimes. So again a real unique look, and is that something again? That kind of draws people to you because you don't look like the classic Nascar driver and again. I mean that in a good way, right? Very, happy about the comment I feel like right now. If I could win some races, I would have also following because the only part missing is the successful side which is the biggest park because people love me like we have had fans in a couple of months, but they're always when I do autographs or things like that or walkout fit road I guarantee I hear at least twice that they love. My hair loved. Loved, way address or crazy shoes away or whatever I hear comments from fans about that stuff, and not the first year you know not two thousand and sixteen or fifteen or whatever, but as as started racing a lot more I started hearing that I know they liked the different look. You know it's just something. It's just the different different guy to pull for you know, but I gotta get more successful on the track match. Can, do weird stuff. You can't do your twentieth thirtieth every week, so. I gotta get a little bit better to make it all. Make sense, but this is the true me like I. The one advantage like I said I didn't want to go back and change it and try to be better than the where I've turned out, or what is the way it's turned out I am I'm happy that I do dress how I want to do my hair. How want to I have some freedoms that having success? Success sometimes keeps you from Avon so I, told everybody every sponsor I've talked to every person I've worked with I will cut my hair dress neat. Do whatever I have to do if I can be in the top ten, but I'm not going to dress away. Somebody wants me to to run twenty, so we're going to. We're going to stay true VJ and make sure I am I. Am and do that till I either get. Get an opportunity to be in the top ten, or if we get there on her own with their own bill, then I'll still be dressed in the same way, so we'll just see what happens I'm having a great time talking to you and it makes me think of something that I had talked to me hill about recently on.

"Hey everyone welcome to the racing writers podcast I'm your host Kelly crandall. Thank you for tuning in this week. For what is going to be a fantastic conversation with bj McLeod. If you don't know much about bj which I did not before talking to him, this is the interview for you because Bj not only shares how he got to mass car, but the success. Success, he had a long way along with how he approaches his career, and all the while showing off a great personality. I love this conversation because I learned so much and again it was an opportunity to get to know a driver who I had not interacted much with some confident. You're going to walk away from this episode as entertaining enlightened as I did. One really insightful part of the conversation is on the topic of lap traffic and I made it a point to ask the day about this because I've come to hear how he's one of the most respectful drivers on the track. How did that happen? What exactly does be due to keep himself out of the news? Of course there have been plenty of unflattering headlines over the last year or so about drivers in underfunded equipment, being the target of criticism, so it's interesting to hear bj's take, and then he also shares a great never before told story of being his own spotter and crew chief during an explicity series race a couple years ago. bj McLeod is from Shula Florida. He has competed in fourteen of nineteen. Cup Series races this year driving for his own team. Rick ware racing and spire motor. Sports in the extended series BJ has run all seventeen races this year for Johnny. Davis and his twentieth in the standings, plus he also fields multiple cars in the community series, and has had the likes of Josh Colicky.

Are we using an equity lens when we think about how we spend resources? Are we incorporated the needs of our full community? That's the kind of perspective that we need going forward to make sure that we have sustainable not just environment but a sustainable economy as well and so as as people are are thinking about this time we're in I just strongly encouraged folks to to also try to focus on where we going.

We started the skin from a couch. So what better at our place to talk it all out than where it began on a couch today. Hey we welcome ambassador. Susan Rice to skimmed from the couch ambassador. Rice was national security advisor to President Barack Obama before serving as national security the advisor. She was the United States Ambassador to the United Nations as well as a member of the cabinet. Prior to the Obama Administration at Basseterre Rice was a fellow fellow at the Brookings Institute and began her career in foreign policy under president. Bill Clinton so many questions also ambassador rice as has just published her book tough love the title references. Her parents approach to raising her which prepared her for career in world politics. And I'm guessing a lot more. The memoir has been called both highly personal and unflinchingly honest. It's landed her a spot on the New York Times Bestseller. Lists congratulations. We we are thrilled to get the opportunity to speak with her about her historic career ambassador rice. Welcome to the couch. Thanks so much. It's really great to be with you. Both very excited right okay. So let's jump into it first question we ask everybody. Skim your resume for us. Okay scholar written and published academic work on national security and foreign policy when I was at the Brookings Institution as a foreign policy scholar I've also been a management consultant diplomat. negotiator national security expert. That's the first time we've had those bullets on this show. What is not on your your wikipedia or login? Daniel dropped. Her microphone in a very important question was the literal mic. Drop in writing. Not On your official biography or Kapadia that we should know about you. Well I mean there's a lot but one of the most important things if not the most important things is that I'm a mom. I have two kids one in high school now in one in college and I'm a wife and I'm a proud daughter daughter of two parents who had phenomenal impact on me So family to me is hugely important. What is a typical day? Look like for you now now. It's well now when I'm not on book tour normally. Okay it's so much better comparatively like I can get up at seven you know as opposed to five thirty or six. I can work out and take my time doing it. Not being rushed I can put on my yoga pants I and my fleece and very leisurely eat my breakfast. which is usually like fruit and yogurt or something like that with a lot of coffee and then it depends on what my days as about? When I was writing the book? Sit Down and focus on that. I spend time at the School of International Service at American University. where I meant to our students I do some speaking. I do some travel. I'm on the board of Netflix. And I do some other private sector so depends on what the the the deal of the day is but for the most part the great thing is I'm in charge of my own schedule and I'll have to get dressed up except when I'm on book tour you said You can travel. I'm sure you have traveled so much watch but a lot of it has been in your professional life. Where's the last place? You traveled here for fun abroad or anywhere anywhere. The last foreign trip we took took was to Peru with the family in August which was really fun. 'cause it's been a while given that the kids have jobs in camp in whatever that we've actually been able to do to a cool foreign trip together. Is there a place you haven't gone. That's been on your bucket list. Oh Gosh lots. Let me do a short summer. Yeah I would think you've been everywhere. I've been a lot of places Che's but not everywhere and there's a lot of places I still WANNA go Thailand Morocco Sosa Czech Republic. Ah Norway I've been Ireland into the big places have been you know. China had been Russia into Japan. Indonesia I've been to many parts arts of Africa most of western Europe a good bit of South America but I still want to go to Chile. I WANNA go back to Argentina. Yeah I WANNA go back to Brazil. We should do do a little girls chalet you should. It's amazing you talk about family being really important to you. And that's obviously a huge inspiration from the book. The the title of the book is a nod to your parents parenting style. Tell us about your parents. Well I had to really wonderful parents both past unfortunately but my dad. I was born in segregated South Carolina around nineteen twenty. His grandfather. My grandfather had been a slave. He fought in the Union army in South Carolina during the civil war and then after the civil war my great grandfather rather miraculously got a primary education occasion became a teacher and then got his divinity degree Went to college and after college he An after his early professional career. He established a school in New Jersey. called the board in town school and from the late eighteen eighty s until nineteen fifty-five that school educated generations of African Americans both in vocational and technical skills and in college preparatory skills and Albert Einstein and Stein and Mary McLeod but Thune. Eleanor Roosevelt. All came to the school which was really quite extraordinary in that. Legacy of service of education was what my father was raised with but born in this oppression of segregation and Jim Crow. He really was struggling to figure out how he could fulfil his potential during World War. Two he served with the Tuskegee airman and in the segregated Army Air Force and he had the horrible experience of not being able elite in restaurants off of base but seeing German. POW is being served and so he knew that he wanted to become somebody. He was brilliant and after after college he decided in after the war lead the south. Go out to California. He got his PhD in economics at the University of California Berkeley and then he spent his professional fashion career. Working his way up he worked in the Treasury Department. He worked at the World Bank in a senior position. Ultimately he was a governor of the Federal Reserve. And I'll come back to him but I learned from my father just extraordinary perseverance and basically believing in yourself even when society and everybody around around you is telling you that you're not worthy or you can't. My mom came from a totally different background. She was the daughter of immigrants from Jamaica. That came came to Portland Maine of all places in nineteen twelve and my grandparents on her side. Had No education was agenda when was a maid and yet like so many immigrants immigrants. They came with the American dream in saved and worked very hard and sent all five of their kids to college. Two of my uncles became doctors. One a university president won an optometrist optometrist and then along came my mother the baby and she was Valedictorian of her high school class. She was debate champion. She she went on to Radcliffe College now. Part of Harvard and was president of the entire student body graduated magna cum laude and because she almost didn't get go to college because she was denied a scholarship because she was black but eventually because her principal enter debate coach went to bat on her behalf. She azazel receive another source of money. She made the fight to enable college to be affordable to low income Americans. Her life's passion and she. He was known as the mother of the Pell Grant Program because she was instrumental in establishing and sustaining this extraordinary program. That's allowed eighty million Americans to go to college. My mom was it was a bad ass in nineteen fifty when she graduated from high school as an African American woman. In a very white state of Maine She he went on through her career to be a pioneer. And so these two parents who were wonderful but had a horrible marriage which can come back to really taught me to fight and to be strong and to not be dismissed her diminished or discounted by others how his career talked about in your household growing up. I mean I. I had a working mom and a professional mother from the earliest days of my life and so on the one hand. It was an example in an expectation that you can work and have family at the same time. It was rare. Frankly at that time this has been the late sixties early seventies for the mothers of my classmates for for example to be working outside of the home in a professional capacity. So I had her example and I had my father's example of rising up in government and in private it's sector we were expected to excel. We were expected to work hard and do our best. We are also taught that you know we could be whatever we wanted to be. They weren't saying you gotta be this or you got to be that but the fundamental message was whatever you choose to be do your best at it and make it something. That's about somebody other than just yourself when I hear you talk about your parents and them as role models to you and your family I think about it two ways on one hand. I'm like that is incredible. crediple an amazing and they obviously created such a strong legacy in you. Second thing I think of is that's got to be a lot of pressure at times. Did you feel that growing up. Who is funny not really not in the sense of? I was scared that I wasn't going to meet their expectations and they were going to get mad at me. They had a really important saying that. Did they sort of banged into me. And my brother which was do your best and your best will be good enough and what they meant by that was you know. Don't be a slacker. Don't be fast but if you do your best and it's not you do badly that's okay. You are allowed to fail. You just not allowed not to try your best. And so they gave us a sort of confidence in safety net. They'll be behind us. We can take risks. We can do something thing that we may not be good at but just do your best. The message was you know. Don't be lame and that was kind of their version tough love. It doesn't mean that they expected us to always get as observe. Be The best person on the basketball team or whatever the the thing was but were they gave us a hard time was when we sort of cut corners fit in the Rom- of your imagination that you would have the jobs that you ended up having served in the way that you ended up serving the particular job that I had were not in the realm of imagination. Because I didn't know yeah. When I was young I was going to be interested in foreign policy and national security? I didn't know the field well enough to say. This is what I want to but I knew that I was likely to to do something and do it to the best of my abilities and that it would be an ambitious objective.

Fighting for their lives: The Ontario battle over autism funding

"Heard the stories desperate mothers somehow lifting entire cars off of their children are fighting off wild animals to save their babies. There's not much research supporting that phenomenon but if you wanna see in an action politically at least in Canada, head to Queens Park, the provincial government legislature in downtown Toronto. All of all of the. I'm lose out. All of these kids are going back into the schools without the support they need without the therapy. They need this evidence. He's cats are desperate. See couple of weeks ago. Doug, Ford's conservative government announced changes would be coming to autism funding in the province. We'll get to the details of that funding. But suffice it to say that for parents of autistic children who've spent years battling for every scrap of help for their kids. It was not a welcome. And so these parents did what they've been doing since their children were born they called, and they showed up and the organized, and they fought with everything they have. Will the government backed down in the face of that orig- on Monday, Tori, MPP gave the premiere and the minister of children's services a standing ovation. So not yet. Anyway, is there was there ever a good way to handle the autism file and Ontario has any government gotten this issue? Right. And has Ford's government, which is held tough too many reforms in the face of anger from across the province finally met, the people that it should not under any circumstances. Have messed with. What happens next? I'm Jordan heath Rawlings. And this is the big story, Cynthia mulligan is the city news reporter at Queens Park. She's been covering this file for years since since it's been a file. How chaotic has the past week being at Queen's Park. Has been incredibly chaotic and you have to remember the session only just resumed on Tuesday. And by Wednesday all the media here in the gallery felt like we had already been at it for three months, right? It's very intense lots of emotions I mean, lots of parents, come in just absolutely desperate begging for help for their for their child. And they're they're desperate because they think that they're going to lose all hope for their child with with autism. So take me back to the beginning of the changes to the autism funding that that started this outcry well early February, I think it would February six minutes. Lisa MacLeod made an announcement. They they were talking about changing the rules around autism therapy and keeping buying and I've stressed this. My stories no government has ever gotten this. Right. It had it is a difficult. File it is challenging and parents have had to fight. Over and over and over again for years for their child to get them the funding that they need because autism therapy can cost up with eighty thousand dollars every year for the intense therapy. So we knew that the liberals back in two thousand sixteen tried to change the wait list and they backed down after about three months because the parents were so upset and then and so they eliminated the cop on age. That's a big distinction. Parents don't want their child to age out of therapy at the age of six they wanted to continue on. But we do know research suggests that the more intense therapy, the earlier the better, but it doesn't mean that you have to cut it off. And that it has no impact whatsoever. After the age of six which is what parents are arguing for. So I'm sort of going around in circles here, but minister McLeod inherited a massive, wait list. She says it's twenty three thousand and I've been doing this story for oh my God decades and. You have kids who are on the wait list therapy for years before they get off the wait list and get their Affi that they need, and it's a massive problem. And it grew that weightless grew under the liberals' Doug Ford promised to make it better. What they decided to do is eliminate the weightless within eighteen months and give more children less therapy. And they're capping the therapy. And it's also capped based on age. So a child under the age of six will get twenty thousand dollars worth of therapy a year, and then once they turn fix they'll get five thousand dollars worth of therapy a year. And remember it's it can be up to eighty thousand a year. So parents are absolutely devastated and desperate, and they say that their child will not get enough therapy. We've been showing up Queens Park. Yes. And they are promising many rallies. I have heard that there's one on Wednesday. And there's also another one being planned for early March. Next week, and but they have been coming. They've been packing the gallery they've been in the hallways. Just absolutely devastated. And you know, they they are very impactful because they are coming and there's just up salute fear in their eyes there crying, and they're desperate. They have nowhere to turn. They've run out of money. You know, one woman was telling me I've used up all my IRA Ps. I've I've remortgaged my house, I begged my family and friends for years. And now, I've got nothing left. Can you give me a sense of the scope of this problem? How much money is at stake, and how many kids are we talking about an Ontario? There are roughly forty thousand children with autism and on -tario right now the budget for the autism file is three hundred twenty one million dollars. Do we have any sense of how long these plans have been in preparation for have have we done any has the government done any research gone back to two experts where did this come from and win. Well. It's interesting because ministers taking a lot of backlash over the experts that have endorsed this file, and I've been trying to ask her tell me, the experts that said this was a good idea, and she points to Holland, bluer view, and Chico which is a hospital in Ottawa, but their diagnostic centers, and what she did was she doubled the money for diagnostics. So it would make sense that they would think that that's a good plan. But I said to her okay? But what expert authorities said it's a good idea for you to give more children far less funding. She pointed to the two diagnostic centers as well as Aaron oaks who did write an Email in support of her and this plan, but I have contacted them repeatedly. And they won't answer my questions about it. Now about what they thought was a good idea.

And is now in serious doubt rail now ten in Lalita and in baseball Boston Red Sox the wraps on a dominating season with a five one win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in game five of the World Series. The Red Sox are killed their full title in fifteen years James more from James in twenty five minutes. In the meantime, let's talk about the computer giant IBM spending thirty four billion dollars to buy a software company that gives away its products for free business presented this morning. In Hong Kong is Andrew would Andrew what's this all about? Well, he doesn't give away all of the products for free. It gives away the key products. You remember the old thing they used to say is if you give them an official feed him for a day, if you give them if you teach a man to fish and you'll feed him for life. The capitalist version is you can also sell him fishing equipment. You can sell him magazines fishing. You can send him about theme holidays and conferences, and it's a bit like that with red hat, which is the company that IBM is board at the key to its business is the Lennox operating system which has been around for a couple of decades now, and it's no fun source software, and it's free. It's basically being put together by volunteers. So the problem is with the with the software is that because it's being put together volunteers. There isn't really anything like a company you can ring up or help desk. If you've got problems with Lennon's so company like red hat comes in and says, well, we'll solve your problems with lenox. We'll we'll adapts it. If you need it be we can debunk it. We come come connect you to other computer systems, and so on so red hat makes a lot of money out of that. It's also into cloud computing as well now IBM is the deal is worth thirty four billion IBM's worth. About one hundred ten billion on the stock market. So this is quite a big deal in terms of expanding the size of IBM rather. It's quite a big big takeover that might take a bit of time to digest IBM gets access to an awful lot more technology services. And traditionally IBM was very very good at coming up with big computers and lots of software and selling them a rather renting them to people. And so in a way, this is actually going backwards to what the IBM was like thirty forty years ago. Very good at coming up with software, which you can sell services rented out in effect, pay subscriptions and get cash again. And again and again. Yes. So IBM kind of coming full circle. Thank you. Andrea. That's our business presented this morning. Andrew would and as you may have had in the news throughout the last couple of days funds of LeicesteR Leicester City football club in Britain has confirmed. The chairman of the club died when his helicopter crushed outside the stadium on Saturday evening. All four people on board were also killed. Funds have been laying clubs shots and messages of support. Also the team stadium. Mr. VJ as was famously helped to put together a team which ton Waldron at one of the Premier League in two thousand sixteen at odds of five thousand to one at tell us more bottom and how he made his fortune that ended up in LeicesteR city's George McCloud who's a political risk consultant based in Bangkok. And you started his business is all right, George. Yes. That's correct. Now, would you would you say that he was immensely wealthy? He was he was a extremely wealthy businessman. His net worth was estimated at over three three billion US three point three billion. And speaking to my colleague Jonathan head not too long ago. He says that he wasn't that. Well known. In Thailand until he bought Leicester City. No, he was you know, he I I would say he was a figure of some controversy as well. He he he obtained a very lucrative duty free concession for Thailand's airports, which obviously did attract attention, but. His his acquiring of of the Leicester City football club sort of propelled him to to a new level, you know, locally as well, obviously internationally and what we've seen with other. Thai wealthy people. Not least should know what ended up in politics, but he stayed out into. Well, you know, formerly speaking he did. But behind the scenes, he's he's he's been incredibly active, politically, I'd say that that he stands apart in that sense. A lot of businessmen in Thailand try to deliberately steer clear of politics. He's been very active financing various sides of the political spectrum depending on I guess who's in power at the time. He's switched sides a number of times, then proved very dexterous at at navigating the difficult political system here, why Lester city of all the teams why did he pick it? Well, I mean for for one thing it was you know, it was an underdog team. And I think he set his sights on on, you know, wiping it into shape, which which he did very well. I mean, the shows a high level of sort of business acumen on his part and. It was very much a down de project. He he's as I say very wealthy, but he doesn't come from one of the legacy wealthy families here. And he was always struggling to gain acceptance in those circles, and I think acquiring that football club was partly intended for for that level of acceptance. So how will ties be reacting to his death? Well, there's obviously shock over this grief over this because he is possibly, you know, the the only figure in this country that's managed to internationalize himself to that degree. But you know, of course, I don't think people are in the under any illusions that they that he has been a figure of controversy as well. Good to talk to you. Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with us. We've been speaking to George McLeod who is a political risk consultant based in Bangkok. So.
