It's the bullet points. We're gonna be talking about today. How andy wet from legendary investor to an entrepreneur so i want to talk about benchmark capital and well front to start because anti are two very very different businesses. So what does fired you first and foremost to creep benchmark and then eventually become an entrepreneur. Yourself i was one of five people who co-founded benchmark so it wasn't is who did it. It was a group of us. The inspiration for doing it was my previous venture capital firm which was one of the top five firms. Called merrill pickard anderson r- was going through a generational transition. Two of the partners were retiring. Which left the remaining three of us to decide. Did we want to take the franchise forward or did we want to become free agents and do something different at the same time another one of the top five inch your capital firms was going through this same sort of generational transition where the founding partner wanted to retire in that firm's name was tvi partner. Bob came from tv. I bruce dunleavy and i came from merrill pickard. Kevin harvey was an entrepreneur that we had backed at merrill pickard and so what united the four of us. There was a fifth person but he didn't last very long but what united. The four of us was a desire to build the best firm in the business. We didn't believe that we could do that with our previous franchises. Even though both we're probably in the top five in the business we thought we needed to do something radically different in order to rise to the top and so Given that each of merrill pickard and tv. I had decided not to raise a new fund just to wind down their operations that allowed us to become free agents to start something new

Secrets Of A Grand Prix Photographer, Bahrain Testing Day 2

"To go with today's action i'm joined by grand prix alex kalinowka and a special guest photography. Extraordinaire stephen t. To get his perspective from the front line. Stephen thank you so much for joining us today. it's been a very busy couple of days and bahrain How is the great nice to be here. Thank you for inviting me. Yeah it's been been okay at as you said. The weather was was fit. Weirder than we expected. I think everyone thought we were gonna come here. Very benign and a ball. They were able to really halt yesterday. And and we have to sandstorms but amazingly I think the amazing thing was caused the often is still managed to get to the time that they did a landau for about a day. That saying how amazed there was that you manage to get such a such a quick time in and he said that he thinks the because the track is Has got such a. It's a very rough track very wraps up. He seems to think that maybe the oldest a very very fine sand that was being blown around. What's going into the cracks and wasn't really effective in sumatra. 'cause they said it looks a lot worse. The cheap felt basically. So that's quite interesting. So how was that from your perspective because obviously it was very very sandy on friday. A love wins. And when you get bahrain as well you have to deal with the conditions of going from light to dark as a photographer. How does that change things. Foyer day these tests have been quite long. There's actually quite nice to have the dnc the otherwise everything will be a little bit one dimensional. You'd be reasonably nice light in the morning. He's got reasonably life nights. Layoffs at all or you should But it's nice. It's nice to have the opportunities to the lives as well. I'm here with them choosing mclaren so we're only allowed to even be on track or in team garage if you work and they see what folded at one team so we could allow full overseeing the garage then all out and circuit two very separate team says guys are on track. Spend the whole weekend on track guys in the in the cowards and spend the whole weekend in that garage is but so so it. It's quite nice to have to the you know the the change of life because as soon as the lights come on you can stop doing different things etcetera so It otherwise it would be very very long day on a bit. One dimensional when you set up for the weekends. You and the other talkers. Guts bahrain for the weekend diesel to come together make list of like the shots you want to get or is it very much A little bit more fluid than that shopping list is kind of creative. I in a client whether it be working might multiple dot com or ulcers. Full repay racing. We were We we put them yesterday. They they went suppress Last night basically. So they needed. They needed five parades and And pictures of every car. The team sponsors. We were all have big shopping list of stuff they need so it's very much driven by but yet you're absolutely right we do. It's around a on a breakdown. Who can do an five of the days. The best time to get the shot get shot there is a lot of discussion about basically and obviously in preseason testing updates as well which is quite important factor for editorially and i guess for you guys this photographer how do you kind of with that kind of aspects of preseason testing as well. What about talk of his mom. He's tossed with looking for that stuff and shoots just basically shoots stuff on circuit tries to get angles but my show walser. What the what. The teams are doing differently. So that's that's that's very much role this year because there's no active free actress to the line. I know access to other people's got the one working working working in it's it's very sham an od on the oneal and tracks Soup scenario about. He's been with this gopher nisa kind of see stuff so it's kind of interesting to hear it from especially within the time currently in but you know you've been you've been at the track stephen and you've been watching things happens. There been anything that's kind of caught your eye for the past couple of days. I mean just the number of laps they've been doing is one thing. Obviously we all know the calls on all the other they. They social differences to the merrill basically the same as last year. So somebody's been doing testing for chip more years than cats. Cats are remember One of the features of testing nor in especially you know going back a few years was the cause would sometimes do you know first day of testing four or five laps and spend the rest of the time in the couch being being get the updates in an engineer stunning scratching their heads over a various positive. But they've just been they've been pretty pretty now and they just been going round and round around so i think good other than that frustration for us i suppose The the there's been a lot flow is on the cars and And that's not something that Clients we go out to us basically because that gives away lots of secrets. So those those those locks have to be Speeches copy used from the laps. That's happening on and then hopefully they've been using the the arrow gates as well and a lot so That this There's been quite a lot of. Let's be quite a lot of that going on the last two days especially in the

"They're on twitter. And i i was just tweeted by our friend. Nick that i i don't know who taylor lorenzo's but she's got a blue checkmark in two hundred twenty thousand followers and she re tweeted one of his dumb ass videos and put them on blast for it So it's like it's not like it's not like his trashes going anywhere there's always there. It's a classic lesson in digital citizenship. You know something that you should you know. I could roll my eyes. You dummy for doing something so stupid. You know i call out mike and i've done it on this show and past episodes like another adult on some sort of behavior. Whatever might be. And that's what you wanna do. You know as far as your ticket you want to call out other adults. Go ahead you know. I guess i mean it's at least it's another adult but the kids you're in charge of and you're using it to make fun of them or say you know how how dumb they are how they lack knowledge because they don't know a specific thing and and in my commentary was this when i was of a specific h. For a long time. I was a frequent jerk in school. And if i knew. A teacher didn't respect the teacher. If i didn't respect you didn't you didn't earn my that not that you needed to but i'm just saying i. This is the type of student that i was. I would intentionally say and do things. That were the wrong answers. And whatever might be whether or not a new the stuff because best the behavior of an adolescent of of a kid this is this is so whether or not they knew. The things are not. We don't even know that he that we do know though that he was sitting there recording a series of videos of these gen z kids having no knowledge of significant historical events. And what did start to. And this is a super frustrating thing for all educators. Is that you have people like this guy eddy post and then guess what all the backlash of non educators was when they saw this mike. They're like that's why public education is horrible. All teachers are terrible. The standards today are hor- you know. So they're blaming they put the blame then on the whole entire system at all of us for the supposed lack of knowledge of these kids. Which again. I don't even believe it that those kids did or didn't know and if they did not know what an amazing opportunity mike to be able to say. Hey you know what we've got. We've got a place to start at s- we're gonna start at the beginning and we're gonna and we're really going to draw you in and i'm gonna make sure that by the time you leave my class whether or not whatever might be. You will not only understand who these people are. Events happened but you'll feel passionate drawn in to share that with someone else that you know this. This actually happened. You'll go home and you'll say. Hey mom dad let me let me. Tell you about helen. Keller yes instead of my teacher made fun of me today. Because i didn't know about helen. Keller like this dummy did everything wrong. So i hope he learns his lesson. Yeah i think he's in for a world of trouble and You know you know we call it like we see it and you know there's a lot of other A lot of other great teachers. On tiktok i even. I even hate the idea of giving teacher tiktok bad name because i've seen some really cool content from educators on tiktok who are doing an inspiring their gaps using the platform. That's adequate wannabe on. If this guy doesn't think the his kids arc innoc- hadn't seen those things i mean. He should be ashamed of himself. Playside i have no doubt that they saw it. You know let's You know it's something else. Yeah hey let's move on to talk about a couple other other things. Because i think we can put this guy on blast all day. You know. i'm a giant in addition to being giant history. I'm just a giant nerd all around space space. This also really really something. And i'll tell you man the things we can do. We flew to another planet with a car that has a drone on it for the record craze and then we dropped it down using cables just nascent softly on the ground and then the thing that dropped it down just kind of flew away and and and then and then in a couple of weeks friends a little tiny helicopters going to just float out of that drone out of that out of that car and show you what it's show you what it sees and you know we did that on a planet thirty three million miles away while the things we can do make my head explode. Yeah it is astounding. How smart people are to think you know. We've we've done other crazy nut. Like i mean we dropped a rover like bouncy ball wants on on on mars mars. You know. and we've done this little dropping with the carrier thing in the fine. We done that twice now twice. We've done this thing where we've dropped. Just gently landed a rover on a planet with a little floaty platform. That this then just goes flies away and it's done its job it's just astounding and i don't know if anyone related anyone or anyone you know is involved in this. That listens to our podcast. Or but congratulations for god's sakes. Oh my god. Yeah it's just it's an astounding accomplishment. And i pray to god that i mean. I need teachers to start playing the stuff in their class.

Anzu's Plan to Evolve In-Game Advertising with CEO Itamar Benedy

"Any of these Sports networks other properties on this episode of the E Sports Network podcast for bringing back a gasp from about a year ago wage a little more bonetti. He's the co-founder and CEO of on zoo in a more. Welcome back to the Shelf. Hey meets great to be here tomorrow is on the show back in February of 2020 where we discussed the growth of in-game advertising age people who miss that show or too many of our new listeners since then on to his a platform that makes it easier for braids to get into video game worlds and for developers to open up more potential White spaces in their games for Grants Pass. I'll do is work with Publishers like Ubisoft at lide Castle to deliver Brayden moments for major. It's like Samsung Pepsi American Eagle and many more Esports. We've seen it gave ads take Auto larger role especially patiently League of Legends open up space in summoner's Rift and it was filled by MasterCard an Alienware among other partners and just this morning as a record this on Wednesday, February 10th, 2021 rocket League announced that Ford is going to take over there it gave Billboards for the upcoming which are major on zoo also had a big adults with this what the platform recently raised nine million dollars in additional capital in around Kool-Aid buyback Fetchers and hbse Ventures. There is participation by plenty more investors, of course, including Mark Merrill, one of the two founders of Riot games, this follows two other funny raises of three and five million. So in Mark Gratz of the race, first of all, what are the plans for this capital? Yeah, thank you Mitch. So as you said we raised 9 million dollars beatcraft is one of our previous investors are still leading gaming Esports v c. B c is a new VC which comes from the sport world and a lot of touchpoints around gaming and then other investors are wpp the biggest advertising group in the world, which is also like in the existing investor and Sony Innovation fund, you know, Sony is one of the biggest gaming groups in the world and the owner of PlayStation. So that's a privilege to have them on board Mark Romero the founder and chairman of road games on League of Legends. As you mentioned didn't call ins the founder and CEO of super awesome that recently got acquired by epic games and the Chicago Cubs. Yeah, the baseball team go Ventures and gainesville's and illumine Adventures. So a very crowded and exciting structure of invest investors to have on board. I'm a Cardinals fan so we'll let the dog So invested things slide, I guess but grats on all the different people who came together you mentioned before we started recording you were in the position that every founder kind of hopes. They find themselves in which is we have a few people. We have a different options for Capital so we can pick the people that make the most strategic sense for us going forward. What did you find from the mobile the different investors? What were you looking for? Especially as guiding parts of the company to push it Forward? Sure. So I mean, you know what this round was not about it was not about as fast as we could have fine as it like very very fast as what it was about bringing the best structure. Number one number two, it was about, you know to maximize shareholder value. We could raise almost double the amount but we didn't want to make sense. This is the amount of cash we need for next stage Rose and then in the future if it's a year from now or two years from now we can do another round off. For that makes sense. So we were not looking at at you know, these things it was more about we have a lot of confidence in him. Advertising is going to become a major business model for game divorce across all platforms, through PC Mobile and an important ads category four Brands media agencies and the ESPYs and and the question is how fast can that happen or more sneaking about big Brands big Publishers not easy companies to convince them to do something new. So when we meet partners that can help us to make this happen faster than wages. Are we get excited one form to partner is again investment one is a strategic partnership and they can elaborate more of some of the Partnerships we have in place and some of them is people who join our team. So that was what was guiding us and looking at the different, you know buckets of we are investors came from there is some you know, some like VCS and financial institutions. There is advertising and groups. There is game. Groups and there is a sports organizations that have a lot of touch point in going to become an important overlap in my opinion the next two years. And of course there is like with the values that we want to group represents and communicate us companies gauges as the leading investor for equal opportunity and Which choice for us an important to him and announcement to basically said if the world that was how we were looking at it that's a great place to be at

We both have young families. And we're both avidly into the outdoors whether it's fishing hunting or of both. So that's our goal is to You know recruit new new anglers and new hunters to the to the outdoors around. The timing is really appropriate for unit. We've got a whole new.

Nobody's covering it. Yeah it's it's been fun to watch you over the years. 'cause you you've really helped kind of teach everybody about that and i know as a kid. I always look forward to outdoor life coming in the mail and also in fisherman magazine because that was that was kind of the thing was you know i wanted to learn more about fishing and growing up in cheyenne wyoming. It was like a dead zone fishing. I mean there's there's really not much closer unless you're going to drive like two hours to glendow three and a half hours to seminal five hours to voice in like you just forget about it. There's just nothing there so you're talking about teaching people. I was reading that as much as could. Because i knew when i went. I had to really capitalize on those trips and sell ob. You've done amazing job about that. And i just wanted to know if you could just share some tips with us you know. What's what's in key strategies of getting kids and just other anglers out on the water. What are some good strategies and tips number one number one. Make sure you take him when you can get a bit people. I i mean i can't old is powered pork edges especially with the younger ones. That have a short attention. Spans inter is critical. That baba's going down or something pulling on the end of that line and Are that's one in even with a new adults and we have a lot of those coming into the sport now that have never fished before and yes. They have patients where the young people don't however their patients will wane after one or two trips without getting up by. It's the biggest hinderance that i've seen to our sport and your people neck key is getting a bit a bike. Too late that fire they gotta catch something and You don't wanna take him out in this herbal weather conditions yet the weather good into everything your power to make sure that they get back in there and the reason people fish in continue to fish is they had a good experience and a good experience is something pulling on the end that the wire gets really the reason you're out there. That's what motivates people is the miracle of of this. It is amazing to me. My entire life in this business to see would fish can do this change. Somebody's like yeah. Yeah you know a kid sitting under edging blue gills and all of a sudden nowhere. A two pound bass runs out reminders. That back and grabs your bank. You never had. You're catching a six inch blue gills and having a ball in this best is your hook break where your life forever somebody had never muskie fish. You know they heard something about it. They're they're going out with somebody that knows something about all of a sudden next to the boat. This monster opens his mouth bites on. It's an image yet burns into your into your spirit that change. It never goes away. That's what likes to fire in this sport. And here's why it's so important. That that their two n into good weather to do it in your. That's the key is to get get a matching get a matching get them and then if they're really young after three hours to think to run into live whether you get a few fish rockets there fascinated with fish bouncing around in a live That's the key really. Is the key to keep them motivated. Keep them fishing kit. In a short period of time you know and again with the adult young person after after you know you get them out for two trips. Third time Yeah you're going to say you want to go fishing or meet today too bad experiences them. They're gonna go bad back in play video games. Interests will beer so al. I was fortunate enough to grow up near salt water and my dad in the pacific northwest. We did a lot of salmon and halibut and deep sea and i got introduced very young to fishing.

Welcome rarities Actor to it these days. It's a lifestyle business that you want to get into anything cup. Lack of time it is. It isn't in ninth the fact you you know you eat sleep twenty four hours or so you go to bed at night thinking in still today at the. That's been in this my life. There is not one and go. That goes by that. I don't read something about fishing. Watch something about fishing. Talk to somebody about dishing. It happens all the time. Not a day goes by where some aspect of it is in touch in my life. A part of my life in My closest friends are pretty much involved in fishing industry. Right closest friends. Are that sparks your question for me. L. and that's you know i'm kinda way way beginning of this journey. I've got a small family run company but it's in the hunting outdoor space. And you know. My boys are being raised growing up when we work right. We have stuff to do. There's it's a small family run business. it's not you know. Dad goes to work at nine. And we're we're done at five and let's go do x and y but my question is long term for me. My dad took me fishing law. And now i go hunting and now. My boys are in a hunting company being raised. How did you see kind of the transition of with raising these kids. In the company in fending fishing industry they stayed on and continued to fish and still thrive as that was our was that a positive experience for them. Oh yes yeah. Yeah for a number of now. There's some of them that was not. I'll use my to poison example. My oldest son george in here in heat you shared with the. I'll give you my first experience with it. needs he. He was raised in the business. He worked in. It works wade through until they went off to college in it but he was interested in fishing gets his passion in his case. Was things that move fast snowmobiles motorbikes four wheelers dirt bikes. This is what he loved to do. Sounds like we'd get along pretty. Well do troy and the other hand off from the time. He was a little tiny kid. You could see the seat of he would be back in front of our h- house here a day and night catching frogs and just running up and down the bank catching he'd loved it from the time he was four or five years old internet. Never change he absolutely left. And i just think again. God created all slightly different with different interests and is a good thing. You had one boy in the garage tinker on motors and going faster and you had another guy you couldn't keep at the house. He was taking his fishing pole and he was to the water at four and five. Yeah in in in you and your the answer. Paracha half have respect know. I respect that. They have to be their own person in in in seek out for thinks the all that you know that those different interest levels impacted their right as they were growing up in reading some cases to to what they're doing today you know again my son toys into it in a lot of different areas of my oldest son and interestingly he he he liked even as a kid. You're living on the edge. He here you love the excitement of the snowmobile races today. He he'd get so pumped on yet in today. He's he's the paramedic he's a wilderness paramedic in he's fighting fires -fornia loves the game. You're whites. He likes ribbon on the edge to me. I like living on the salary to belated contentment. That's what i really like. And you know. I follow troy on social media and that that guy is always out doing something. And he's. he's an incredible fisherman. I mean it's it's yet it just anything anywhere any way any loves digging around in offbeat places for a coupla. He's got he's got pack whereas in no matter where he goes scurrying rats. He sees the body of water anywhere. Anything they could hold the fish he just drives up insider road. And rodney goes spacious anywhere anywhere crapping around the country with him because spent he's spent some time out west and i know he's fish some areas where i've been and it's just kinda cool to see that and i do want to ask you a question about that. Everybody has some of those favorite moments. What it was like a favorite moment for you fishing with your kids that you can recall the years ago with troy. I'll give you a. I'll give you my my oldest son that never got turned onto it and here's winter. Mistakes that make made with the there was a series the best tournament series. Starting in minnesota zillion years ago it was called the northstar bash turned into and when he was about four years old. I took an pre fishing. Mary and i got a cabin on the lake. And i took him pre fishing for that tournament with me and he had snoopy rag. You had snoopy rag. And they had to wait spinner baits. Then you know it was cool. We're up in the morning out. Who day thinking around. He's dragging this spinner baits through the water. And you know. I'm trying to catch some fish. Internet little said something. It's something from we'll get more moves out to have been great you you you hold in iraq ruled colin. He looks at me. it looks at the rad. He throws looked at me again. I got the message. You burn me out so bad. And so i think there's a balance there were so you know. My dad took me steelhead fishing. And i've i've got quite a few steelhead to my name. And if anybody out there knows steelhead there they can be finicky and tricky fish to catch i. I mean the passion for catching them is kinda gone. I've i've i've been out steelhead fishing and i've seen this in the hunting industry where you know you get some guys. That are pretty. Some prowess in are pretty successful. They take their sixteen seventeen year. Old son out. He shoots a world calibre elk and ten years later. He's he's not in elk cutting he's into fishing or snowmobiling or something else does. Ruggles images of the other side of that story would try. What are the experiences a for a number of years we as a family.

And what are some tips that you give people when they're going to a brand new fishery and they've never been there before. What do you tell him to look for. And what are some tips that you give them.

But i wanted to change gears just a little bit One of the things that have admired you for years is that you're not afraid to talk about your faith and i think that that's very important thing and you know i want to see if he can share just a little bit about your spiritual journey and how god is played a big role in your life after the two most important parts of my life. The next year shared all all the time. It's fishing in my unity. Go hand in hand every day. Day is just part of my life. I integrated what we do with the television shows. You know the the impact that it it a try to kind of quickly for you until the time. I was thirty five years old. You know i was a person. It was not an atheist store. Nick knight that nasdaq. I probably would have favored more upper eighty s. And i don't believe anybody that spends any amount of time in the outdoors anywhere can be an atheist. I think that's an impossibility. But i had no really. I was obsessed. And i guess that's the only word i could use obsessed with fisher twenty four seven. That was all that and you know. It gets all in our businesses. Were building at that point in time and At thirty five started giving turkey in my heart to Right to spirit a guy who was just tugging in my heart. I met people that that Turned her life over to the lord. Lord that were hard party hard-drinking people that i knew a hard partier. You know when they were like a different person you night and day and he started to talk to me about about jesus guy stuff i never heard of before the enemy sound comes with a lot of people you gotta understand nothing really new number and then i started the search knowing there's life got you got your busse heart who's much of his life in in one day turned us away lord has given us percents and i says well i i can't do it myself i need help i need your direction. I'm just saying guidance. Any made a confession of faith. Like they're nice and his life and then for about two years you know i wandered around back. Studied the word guide. The bible began challenged thing to me to get through a through know little things like could this really be real. You know like so many people. It's this bible. Could this stuff really. But this this thing is is there a guide the foundation guiding coke. Jesus was the foundation. Is this thing that he really is is. He says he is to be comfortable recently. Said he did from beginning to end. Yeah you know. And i started looking at this stuff. You know one day it got out of my head arc. It was never less years. All i can say is if you truly search is real. He's there you care some words to be. It's a real experience. You know the the point he's got to get out of your head in it. You have become a part of my everyday life. I'm not ashamed for the dash. That's it openly. That's who lamb. And i can only share the experience that i hear. And how would i life. My family My outlook on business. Now look on life right back by relationship with my wife and the older. I get a clearer easier. It is for me out to be more appreciative of of my lord grayson so al. I've got a question. It's a immuno high positive this way in a as starting my own business in the outdoor industry and then walking in faith in how how has that affected you know business decisions and just in a living in the limelight and and outwardly expressing. Your faith is there. You know ever moments of doubt. I mean 'cause i in today's society and day and age is definitely not something that's widely accepted. Are you saying in here by some subject back. But what would you buy. S- i mean as far as just running a business and then walking in faith. I if you look at the marketing partners that i have every single one of a from boat motor rag reels lures lying a wreck. Chronics are the top right at the top of their field in their individual categories. Everyone of and we've been with them for many many many years. Some of them almost my entire career. And i've said in corporate boardrooms all over the country. Go going all over television space over television network and contract saying that we re mega conglomerate and never have. I had one of say anything about my confession of faith and that show it all. Most of them have said they appreciated it and go forward and one of the reasons for that is an and some of them are not people but they businesspeople and the bottom line. Is i self stuff for. That's what i still stuff on. I do my job or am i would absolutely. That's why they don't you know so it's it's a only one. Major major challenge would network. It was who was with a network and and jerry jones johnson. They want forgot about guy that that was the words that they came back came back and they said that it's interesting the way they did notification we played on this network for a number of years and this particular year correct when just the way it always hits in five weeks into the show and it was a wednesday afternoon when it got where got i got contacted by the president of networking. And he said it's gonna pull the show because you're religious stance on it. We don't believe it's we. We went network anymore. This was on a wednesday. We get i managed. They did this going to pull it if we did we. Did we read it. Every i reiterate that we think energy i get contract signed with a bunch of sponsors and i had to deliver the numbers in so we get at that show and euronet weekend in the entire re edited version. And we continue our attorneys. Said you know you've been with. They want to take the court. You can't beat it you got. You ran for five weeks already. You did this for years. They never get it. They can't do for this thing and and they talked iran in in my wife. Laura his wife's no we'll go to thorough. They don't want you. i don't i don't want to be there. they want. They want us to be pulled what they want. They wanted to be this what we did back to show to them. We make the changes in our last of the contract for the television season. We sent them with bill. They said the bill hearing on pitching to us and we sent them the bill. Bill them back or the editing changes. We have to make sent it back. I never heard from them. That i didn't pay for the network in europe. Charge them back for all of the pain and misery went back bent. So it's no legal. Nobody called us back. Matt a single thing the legal. Nobody their legal. Nobody never heard from him since well. I'm really glad that you guys you know you. Un ron have have always been good about you. Know talking to people about your faith and it's been a centerpiece of the show and one of the parts of the show. The actually look forward to a bunch is the very end when you go through whatever god lays on your heart and i really just want to say. Thank you for doing that because we need to be able to talk about these things and i. It seems like culture is trying to move in a direction where they don't want you to talk about stuff that might offend somebody. But it's like you know these are things that we should all be talking about. You know if that's part of your life that's an integral piece. You should be able to talk about it. And there's one one thought i have on that. Patrick is to speak to have speech to have thought. You risk being offensive. Right to someone. And i mean if we're just gonna walk around muzzled and mass and never have a conversation about anything i mean. I'm into big game hunting that that can be offensive. Catching fish can be offensive. So we have to push back. We have to go. They'll run over here if you don't get you know and i'm a big thing an immediate business all my life. I'm a big believer a freedom of expression freedom of speech. Even if i don't with it so am i even. If i don't agree with it you still have a right to share. I understand and i respect it. And i think that's something that people need to remember. Is that just because somebody says something. You don't like doesn't mean you have to agree with them. You can just choose not to listen to that person anymore. I mean there's there's stuff that's put out all all the time that i don't listen to and i don't want to be associated with because i don't agree with what their stance is and you know there's plenty of stuff that i do love to watch and listen to that. I do agree with people that disagree whether you should catch fish on spawning beds are not right in an argument about that or you can easily selena when you can easily get there. But but again. I i like i said i. I respect our our freedom speeches. An expression is an important thing. I've been in the media business my life all my life and in people have a right this year that i have i a right. The like to tune into a cheddar offer. Do whatever i want with it not read it. I can exercise my own decisions. I'm not gonna go in there in equality sponsors sponsor them. Because you're doing this dead. I never do. And i think that's something that needs to be heard and i'm glad that somebody i'm sure a few people here it on this podcast but what you said is very true. We don't need you know this. Cancel culture of of things that you know. Ripples need to be able to share and people need to be adults about it and mature enough to handle it and choose what they want to listen to what they don't. I mean that's it's it's really part of the backbone of what what our country was supposed to be about and Were anyway i do to change gears. Just a little A guy that's been really influential in my life on fishing is pat o'grady. I met pat. Oh man that's probably been twelve thirteen years ago. And he was getting his company started. And i jumped in and helped him out with. Pk lures and here. He had told stories about you coming out to wyoming and doing some fishing. I remember reading. In the law. ally wisdom books About seminole and a few things. So i just wondered if you could share a little bit about coming out to wyoming. Western space are so different than northern or ride scary. Yo it's a whole different world and you mentioned to you mentioned alluded earlier when they get used to is. Never any wind ever ending win in. I mean if you go if you're going to fish you better better get used to win. Better not bothering you. The rick the vote right the handle nbc and being a safe piece the piece of equipment. They handle wind in it. I don't know if you guys ever go through three straight days in a row word you calm day never. I don't think lever happen. I go to archery shoots. And i have people say well. I'm not shooting in the wind and they start playing. Oh the winds blow. And i said well you come to wyoming. If you don't shoot or hunt in the wind just don't go hunting joke. Defeat w. t where we go to the code is as an example. You look at the weather report the night before they they say the win the window. We from fifteen to twenty five. It means it's going to be forty plus asu. It'd be forty dollars. Plus that's what you're going to get the truth. Well you talk about seminar. That is one of the windiest places. I think in the lower forty eight. I mean the the wind speeds on that reservoir are ridiculous. But i'll tell you the fishing is phenomenal. How many winter they put around it. Yeah they put a lot of wind turbines that sucker for good reasons but those western reservoirs growth big fish. Hey we're trying to keep that a secret. Al off carp fish is amazing and even some very. I'm a small mountain. i love smart fishing. The small mouth world small mouth. Fishing is as popular as it's become the tournament organizations. That have the come up north and since two small fishing and a great lakes and now they're coming everywhere yet yet you know you get to experience it in tournaments Love it the small mouth. Fishery that exists. West of the mississippi river is still some of the most unexplored smart fishing in north america systems. I can't you're innocent. At west of the river or to western states many of those reservoirs got phenomenal phenomenal. Nominal bishop i. I liked to tell the story. I've told a couple of times there's a. there's a river in oregon. I won't give the name but an all out to you. We drift boat floated at one day. And i hooked sixty small mouth in a day and i got tired of jagan forum. So i put on a mouse pattern. I tied and i caught. You know half a dozen small. He's on a mouse pattern. Just throw it right against the bank and start stripping out and they'd at that river this drift boat only so motorboats in that that can be a lot of fun i mean those are their sparkling out there and some of the some of the bigger systems pick the missouri river as an example for four. You've got set at saf. You've gotta wacky a. These are massive bodies of water massive massive systems and their in in in in there. I mean the small muppet. Nobody hears coast that they won't see an angler in your role year for small. Nobody'll be their four. Pack four pack is one of the most remote fisheries. I've ever been to. And i'll tell you what they're there have got to be miles and miles of shoreline that never get fished and i mean there's massive massive in their own up in way up at that even at the dry air dry air too short that is about what forty i think. That's forty miles long. And then you've got that main arms like one hundred and sixty miles long. There's very few accesses. Oh yeah you know you're right. I remember we had a pw heat from the tournament. They're in what we we got the attention that anisimov parsons weighed in. It was kabaya. They rent way when came to brought the smart in with his bad fish. So we could wait and it was like a six three or six or this. Was that smaller. That miniature scale in your macro swarm are up in san francisco. I couldn't pull about about have to lead. Somebody's somebody structures. Just drive in his crazy ton of them in there. That's an incredible says. I said there there miles up. It is the most untouched massive untouched mama. Fishing attack. the guy goes through not to mention some of the. There's one night and forget. That warned that they bleed. I think they believe their next record. Birsh sure commander there. I can't remember to saturday with no gather some wells. Old anti yeah. There's some fantastic fisheries out here. And i know just in wyoming alone. I mean you've got a number of really good reservoirs for walleye and you know a couple for small mouth that are really significant and a whole bunch that are good for trout of various species. And of course he got flaming gorge with those humongous lake trout. And that's and that's an incredible fishery to we touched on earlier smarter and they've they've kinda taken a dive the they they think that the Burbot that made their way there. Somehow somebody moved burbot down there into that drainage from apparently around this area and They just haven't they haven't done as well they they were doing really well in the early two thousands. I used to go down there with my dad and we'd catch some up to four four and a half pounds and now it's pretty hard to find them. They're still there. They're just not in the quantity that they used to be environmentally. Then yep There's something to be said for that. You know when i grew up steelhead fishing. You'd spend a lot of hours and when you finally hook into one of those thirty forty inch fish. I mean they they take you for a ride for a while but you can fish for two three four days before you even catch one hook one hook up you go small fishing and have those fisher so dang aggressive are fun. It's fun so that's one of the beauty of them. Yeah there's a there's a little reservoir here in wyoming that kicks out you around five pound fish. Pretty regularly And i i went there with a buddy of mine one time and we are fishing. Top water thing between josh. And i we we both got probably fish apiece just fishing little poppers on the surface in it was just a lot of fun and then that thing that you talked about al that happens in wyoming happened in the wind blowing really really hard to get off their old of the gun the boat for your life. Get your your jacket on. Got what. I'll tell you that much we got wet but so what's what's next. What's in the future. What's what's you know. What do you plan on. what's coming up. What are we. Should we be watching for and getting a little long into or the age also slowing down. A little bit i mean jimmy wego muskie fishing me for four hours. I ain't gonna go in our barrett fats or two pound rubber. Big thing can happen. You're only as old as you act. Al see you know strongest kid. My body doesn't want my five. You don't want to receive that. There are things that are wearing down a little think. That's wisdom speaking to abandon. No too so. I i have to pick pick and choose a little bit a little bit more but i still loved the game. I mean know as long as i can contribute that this sport in a positive way. I'm gonna do it. i'm not gonna. i'm not going to quit. I'm not gonna retire up. Going to crack back. And i mean by cutting that i wanna do more fun fishing on the shows. Jimmy jeremy that the staff and other people we work with. I'd like to see troy get a little more involved with this stuff. These guys you pick up the ball and run every night for long enough to fund fish a little bit more by that go do some things and places a lot of bodies of water that i'd like to play around a little bit now for two hundred and a lot of people don't understand that you know when you're going fishing for the weekend without a camera crew that that can be quite pleasurable when you're going filming for an episode that can be you know when you gotta redo takes a redo when you just wanna go explore to make it happen you gotta make. It's working people don't they. They sit in their living rooms and watch that and go. Oh well they were just they. Turn the camera on and went and had a fun time. There's a lot of hours behind the scenes when the cameras work was in. And then there's a year no it's addressing a lot of times a lacking half and on hot fight fetched but then when you dress the show after that. That's when you get the underwater cameras stuff out to fit. That fit the scene where the fisher coming in in to get the right drum shots environment. Those those all add to the editing and make it a little more exciting the music tracks that that go with it. you know. Music is so subtle in you know a lot of shows don't use music because you have to pay Their cost us thirty thousand dollars a year to use a music so yeah bachelor of music track because their royalties and alma my companies right in this is our very first go. My dad and i went she putting this last fall. We hired a cameraman and we took him. And i'm learning very quickly of the shortcomings of we didn't get you know. Be roll. Shot here and this extra shot here and you know getting that underwater shot or that overhead shot that you need in. It's you know it's really hard now to recreate and get those extra shots that we need to produce the film that i wanna purdue so make a real exciting piece you back. That'd be rollers goals man just putting the actual the actual easiest park. It is actually catching deficient getting their artist on films that easy. Then you've everything else is putting it together. It's all better than that anything. Sweetening the more things you have to compliment. Show the better.

He's got to spend an hour talking with him and he's he's a wonderful guy and he's made an impact on my life that you i can only just tell you guys that it meant a lot to me today to be able to talk to him when i was younger. My mom passed away. When i was fourteen and after my mom passed away one of my things that it was kind of an outlet for me was fishing just to get away clear my head get away from life and my dad. I remember one saturday. He took me down to cabela's in sidney nebraska which is about a hundred miles from cheyenne. So he went to sydney. Bought some fishing gear but we also went and we found that they had a rack of in fishman. Vhs tapes and books and so we picked up those things and brought it home. And i mean. I was in those things.

Fun has so much joy around fishing. It's just so inspiring to me and so having him on was a big deal. You know for me today so it was great but i learned that and positively right. Vate faith and fishing is what he said. But you if if you're not having fun in this industry and he really did hit the nail on the head. Yes it's it's nice to be able to get to a point. You could make a living at it. But if you wanna make money go to silicone valley go go go create the next app or whatever the next thing is you make money and live that lifestyle but you know he touched on it. He's been in the industry for longer than about anybody and he still working i. It's it's crazy.

How those $600 checks are being spent

"We turn now to the gains to be had from those six hundred dollar relief checks. That started going out a couple of weeks ago and when we might expect to start seeing them show up in this economy. Marketplace's merrill cigars been talking to some people about how they are spending or not spending that money. When austin flannery in greenville south carolina got his six hundred dollar check he decided to splurge i on a barbecue dinner with his girlfriend. Brisket beans potato salad iced tea. But meals like seventy bucks then on some clothes like a fifty dollar pair of pants. Then he saw painting at a local store of some french actor from the eighteen hundreds. Who's all dressed up and smoking. A pipe bought that too. And then i went home and i was like man. He needs to be tattooed on me. He looked so elegant. So i got a tattoo of them on his forearm. Another four hundred bucks. When flannery got the first check. In this spring. He used it to pay off medical bills but he had just lost his job. An insurance company since then. He's gotten a new job luckily enough. I'm gonna financial place right now. Where i could afford to have a little bit of fun so i did. One reason. the government is sending out. Checks is so that people like flannery will spend money another is economic relief. I heard from people. Today who used the money to pay for necessities like rent heating oil in san diego catherine alinsky. Her husband got twelve hundred dollars. Some of that went toward just still trying to survive specifically gas and electric. They saved the rest alinsky. A hairstylist and her salon is currently shutdown. Honestly who knows what twenty twenty one is gonna look like for work for me and we always just want to be more prepared than less. A lot of people are using the money to set themselves up financially. Like hector enrico in chicago. Me and my fiancee. We plan to buy a house soon. So definitely trying to pay off debt to No build a credit get a better interest rate on the mortgage and he's using some of the money to buy raffle prizes for his students. He teaches phys ed at a pre k. Through eight public school. I like to give out little pedometers. I get them at like target sometimes. Thirty twenty bucks Jump ropes at the dollar store. One thing i heard over and over a lot of people are giving a portion of their check away. Two neighbors family members and charities like food banks. I'm maryelle tara for marketplace

A Conversation with Whitney Johnson

"Whitney. Welcome to the show andy. I am delighted to be here. I'm excited to to talk to you. Because i liked your book a lot. So you know some and we didn't write for sales audience per se but as a lot of very sales specific stuff in there. I thought at least maybe the lens. I read it so i can't wait to chat with you about it but one thing i wanted to ask sign. Hopefully you're well. Were recording this in the midst of the the lockdown sidano omit the formalities. But we are well for asking. I mean it's one of those questions that it used to be just a nice city but it's now a real question is a real question right. What's good and you're joining us from where we live in lexington virginia so my my husband is a professor at southern virginia university which is also near virginia military institute and washington and lee. So we're about three hours driving south west of washington dc. So is that out neuronal them. Yes yes that's our closest airport is about fifty miles away. Wow okay so having lived in big cities or served doing a little more not so rural but smaller city living. It's definitely rural. We completely disrupted ourselves. I mean why give you look outside of our window in the morning we can see deer and there are cows next door to us in fact when we very first moved here. Because we've lived in boston in manhattan in large cities when we first moved here. I remember waking up one morning. And i like hitting hitting but like you know pulling my honey honey. Turn off your phone. Because it was buzzing buzzing any turnover. And he's like those. Are the cows unbend an adjustment for us. I find one. I'm away from manhattan anywhere. I go but like my visit. My sister in wisconsin. And both my wife and i get woken up by the quiet. It's like it's too quiet and it's like wait. Why are we going every week. And you're accustomed to having the noise outside all the time that are. Do you know at some level that that it's too quiet attack keeps me up. I love that looking at by the quiet. So i was gonna ask you. Are you follow soccer fan. Because you wrote that you are going to produce a reality. Tv show about sauerland america and listeners. To show that. I'm a avid soccer fan. Oh i wish. I could say that i am. I got really excited. So this This is actually almost fifteen years ago. Now where i. I was a huge american idol. Fan in a huge. So you think you can dance fan. And and i was doing a lot of work in latin america was equity analyst. And so you know. I've been to mexico fifty times to spend a lot of my doing work a lot. American one of our companies that we followed on as equity analyst was televisa which time was basically abc cbs nbc and fox combined and again this is fifteen years ago and so we thought wait. We have an opportunity here to basically do you know. Soccer meets american idol and just got so excited about the stories of that could have produced on so while. I'm not a soccer fan per se. I am a cinderella story fan and i just thought that that could have been an amazing august show to have produced. I wanna watch for sure. So the regular listeners. Get accustomed going off on soccer stuff here. Tangents everything relates to soccer. Soccer explains the world. There was a book that wrote that. So about that so I think i read that book. Actually it was a good book. Yeah yeah so Pet the author on the show. So so we're talking about transformation personal transformation you. I've really enjoyed your book. Which you've just updated and re released disrupt yourself masterless change and speed up your learning curve. So what was the original impetus. Write the book you know. That's one of those questions that its you can answer many different ways on. But let me see. If i can streamline so that we're not here all day on you know as i just mentioned i was equity analyst. Were keep merrill lynch In a focusing on stocks in latin america like televisa so like america melville and this is back in two thousand three two thousand four. I read the book. The innovators dilemma by christian at harvard. Business school and i remember reading that book and it just was in many a transformative experience. If you will. Because i was looking at wireless at the time in every single quarter america. Mobile was beating my numbers like just every time and and telmex numbers weren't so that was the wireline company. In american mobile was the wireless i read. I read innovators dilemma. I said oh. That's what's going on. Is that wireless is disrupting wireline. And i was just fascinated. That there was a s- theory that could explain to me the world and help me understand what was happening And the more. I read that book it more i started. I think maybe just because of my own personal bent started thinking. Well how does this apply to me. Like i understand. It's explained products and services in companies in countries. But i also remember having this moment in just two thousand four. And i had just had this conversation with Someone in management saying you know what really liked to try something else. I'd like to do something else attorney. I'd like to go into management kind of laughed at me. Kind of snickered. Like ov- outs nice. That's never going to happen. And i remember coming back to that book and being you know what if i wanna do whatever it is. I think i'm meant to do which i had a very vague notion. I think many of us do I'm going to have to disrupt myself. I'm gonna have to leave wall street and go do something else.

Sizzling Tech IPO Market Leaves Investors Befuddled

"Headline. The Wall Street Journal. Sizzling Tech AIPO market leaves investors be funneled basically, investors saying, guys, this looks a little bit frosty here. You've actually got companies that have pulled their IPO's not because they're too worried about the downside, but because they might explore other options that allow them to raise money at higher valuations. And you've got some people. Making comparisons to the tech bubble, saying, G. This doesn't necessarily look healthy in terms of what we're seeing on pricing for, you know the long term here, so I don't think puzzled should be used to describe this. I mean, we've seen Irrational exuberance around the number of securities this year that I don't think really added up. So I don't think this is all that puzzling that we saw. Ah, whole lot more demand for these securities than was anticipated. I would be pretty upset if I were you know, Airbnb, or I guess I can't be too upset. I still own a lot of stock at pretty high value. But you took that I P o. And this might be worth explaining. How can we go through the process of an initial public offering? So when you hire an investment bank On Then do your road show where you go Talk to a bunch of investors. How exactly are you determining this price that you I po at and then the difference between that price and what it actually trades at at that first day. How's this all work? Yes. So basically what you see happening is that Let's say that I am running a meal delivery company called Chuck Dash, Okay, and I decided I want to take Chuck Dash public. I'll go to the big investment banks. You're Goldman Sachs. Is your Morgan Stanley's Merrill Inches, All those and I'll say, look. I want to have an exit into public markets, and I want to raise X number of dollars in doing so, and what they'll do is they'll say, Okay, you know, we're going to, you know, first go through and, you know, look at all the numbers on your businesses Submit what's called an S one. It's for Mass one. Where you say Yep, Here's what I've done in revenue. Here's my sales. Here's my profits. Here's my margins, Yada, yada all the info on your company. And basically you'll, then go to all those investment banks and have meetings with them. And they'll, you know, grill you on the fundamentals of your company. And from there, they will then go to their book of business all of their clients and say, Hey, we've got this company. Here's what we think it's it's worth. Do You have any interest in buying at this price? Here? The metrics on it, You'll go around with them in that road show, you know, pitching yourself to potential investors. And basically from there, you get to a number where you say See, I think that Chuck Dash is worth $80 per share. And I want to issue two million shares of it. So I'm going to raise you know, $1.6 billion or whatever it ends up being. And so you know you you do that. And you say, Okay, I You know, I'm selling all these new shares. And so it salutes management a little bit. But these new shares that air going out into public markets and then you eventually get to the point where you have your I P o Day and on that day. You issue those shares at that price, But all of the indices, I'm sorry all of the exchanges Whatever one you trade on whether it's the New York Stock Exchange, the NASDAQ they will go in. They'll try to fill orders based on the pricing that's out there. And pretty much if there is more demand than there are people willing to sell at that AIPO price it drives the price up, okay and remember a lot of old shareholders once who are you know, founders and old employees. Their shares are locked up so they can't sell right away anyway, so it creates a little bit of crunch in some cases. But again through good pricing. If I say I'm appealing at 80 bucks a share? Yeah. You want to see a little pop on day one, but you don't want to leave too much money on the table. What we've seen here is in the case of Airbnb. They aipo, they said their share price. It's $68 a share. But there was so much demand on public markets once they actually you know, started this process that even though Airbnb sold their shares at 68 a share, the first trades happened actually, at north of 1, 50. So Airbnb is sitting there saying Okay, either we should have priced higher and raised twice as much money or we should have sold half assed many shares and raise the same amount of money with less dilution. And that's I think part of the reason why you're seeing some of these companies, saying the investment banking model didn't deliver the rate of the proper capital allocation based on you know what actually happened when these companies went public?

Riot Games: Brandon Beck and Marc Merrill

"Guy roz on the show. Today to avid gamers fended off reluctant. Investors may saying experts and their own self doubt to build riot games an order the most successful video games ever created league of legends in two thousand six. A video game company called bethesda. software works. Tried out an experiment at the time. But as the had a popular video game called oblivion in that year it decided to offer its users an extra feature horse armor not armor virtual armor that you could use in the game and bethesda offered it up for two dollars fifty cents. It was an incredibly controversial decision and most players reacted badly. They didn't like it but enough gamers decided to try it out and bought the armor and it proved a theory that company had that you could create an entire revenue stream through what became known as microtransactions. Still almost no game developers chose to pursue this business bottle that same year. Two friends brandon beck and mark merrill pitched an idea to investors. They wanted to build free video games but offer up things like in game currency and weapons and characters and skill points. I price brandon and mark believed that if the game was good enough players would happily spend a few dollars each week to buy virtual products that might enhance the gaming experience not surprisingly most investors. Turn them down and thought it was a crazy idea. The question mark and brandon getting was. Who's gonna spend money on virtual things things that have no value in the real world and these were fair questions. And it's why it was so hard from arkan brandon to get right games up and running but the game they eventually built league of legends became one of the most popular video games of all time and a game that helped to pioneer the business model now known as the free to play model this year the global video game industry will hit more than a hundred and sixty billion dollars in revenue. That makes it four times bigger than the global film and tv industry and three times bigger than all the music sold around the world and twenty twenty. according to forbes video games will earn more than three hundred billion dollars by twenty twenty five and a growing percentage of that revenue comes from gamers who spend small amounts of money buying skins or costumes for their virtual characters or buying access to locked rooms and imaginary worlds huge gaming tournaments attract millions of viewers with players. Earning millions of dollars a year. It's a massive business and a big part of it has to do with the model that brandon marks company riot games helped. Pioneer and brandon both grew up in southern california. They met as teenagers at a summer leadership camp shortly before college. Here's how marc remembers it. I remember meeting brandon and mike. Oh you're from los angeles awesome it like video games. What's up in so we just kinda instantly hit it off. And then as i got to know him i also just really thought he had a infectious personality at that. It really interesting. Way of looking at the world that was sort of commentary from values perspective to mind in the edge just this incredibly entrepreneurial kind of business oriented mind. That kind of inspired me where i'm like. Wow i've never seen i've never encountered a person that's also younger me that felt so vibrant and dynamic and it's interesting way and so because of the shared love of games so they could hop on the modem play starcraft warcraft two or or duke nukem three d or if i mean we could go on and on about the titles that we all knew and connected about. Yeah so you meet this like leadership program and then you both go back to l. a. And and you you stay in touch or or did you kind of lose touch. Yeah i mean we. We stayed in touch and we call each other every once in a while we. We'd play some games. I remember one of those phone calls. Mark told me a really to see the matrix. What does that. he's like. You'll see ended up blowing my mind. My favorite movie of all time and mark. You headed to usc to start college and brandon did that. I know eventually you would also go to. Usc was was the fact that mark was there to that. Influence your decision to go. There was just just happened to be the place where you decide to go. It was a total coincidence. But it certainly made me more excited about it. I even visited mark when he was at school and hung out within the dorms. Where he he had a bunch of gaming buddies and they would they play games together. And i wasn't a very good student i had. Adhd in a variety of learning differences in wasn't pretty tough competitive school environment. And and i. And i just. I was not the kind of student i was sort of supposed to be. But in the meantime i'm living in this world online. I wanted to spend every minute in my spare time. I would build scripts that would play my character for me wall. I had to be a school. So i would continue to make progress. Well that's pretty impressive. But i mean you did despite your struggles you did end up getting into usc and mark is already there and presumably like you guys. What like start to hang out. And i guess you already have like a friend at college and you get there. Yeah mark would take me under his wing bit and you know introduced me to his friends and show me around. So yeah it was. It was really great showing up and no one mark mark when you guys were in college did. Did you think you know what. I'm gonna start a business with this guy one day or was it just like fun. Conversations would have about. Hey you know maybe one day we should do this or that. Yeah no we we did. But it was sort of accidental. In some ways you know brandon. And i because of our shared passion games and then also our mutual interest in business we would strategize brainstorm or think about opportunities and and this is one of the reasons that i was attracted to brands because he was sort of the most entrepreneurial business minded friend that i had like brandon random music station at sc. You'd be thinking about events or got so we were playing games and we both loved online games and so we loved to like watch replays of really competitive players playing online and try to help inform how we could get better than that started us thinking about well. Maybe we could help. Create or run some gaming tournaments. Maybe we could do some stuff like that surround campus and actually. Maybe there's a opportunity create a league that we were going to call the g. l. ultimate gaming league so brandon. I went down to the basement. Alevi library late one night. We started working on this rough business plan. Neither of us really knew how to build a business plans. We're trying to figure out what that looked. Like what the but on paper and all this and we can never really went anywhere that business but nonetheless I just remember being really energized about the possibilities of the future and and again. That's that's something that an grant and really helped awaken. Was this ability to look at not the way the world is currently but the way that it could be and how we could potentially go help change

Round (Circles and Spheres)

"Merrill what do you think is cool about spheres in circles and all that from top logical standpoint spheres are pretty much the simplest shape you can think of. It's like join everything anything to a spear and it's still the same shape like take a taurus. Join us to it. just glues. fear. It's the same thing. It's kind of like the identity of top logical objects. Explain what you mean by joining us via taurus. So suppose he had just a tourist like a regular old donut and let's say you cut a hole out of that. Any cut a whole lot of the sphere and you glued those two together. The sphere would just kind of disappear into that torres just still be the same donut would still have the same donut hole. So tom logically. They're interesting interesting for other way for other reasons. I mean i like. I like the fact that they could be extended to any Dimensioned even though they're continuous objects could do that. With hyper hyper parabolas and pre aids. And all that stuff. But we're doing an episode on spheres. Just because they're cool they're the simplest object but we have all this math related to them. I mean you played as we're going to see to find his entire system of math using spheres and straight edges and so without further ado regal history of sears in circles which is a very difficult thing to do because planets are spherical. I mean spirited just exist naturally but i guessed We could talk about the early history. The early history. I mean people didn't understand spheres very well. They interested in a long time the study of pie until about a thousand see people that was between three and three point. One two five which is not very accurate finally euclid started using spheres and circles to do different proofs and he did this with compass straight edge geometry and merrill say anything about straight as geometry like doing explain maybe the limits of what you can do with head. I mean it's proved by construction. I mean as just like you can drop circles and he can drop fears and you can like get things such as length and circumference through them and you. Can you know do division to find out. it's like what ratios are things like pie. What's interesting though. Is ed using a compass straight edge. You can't do a lot of elementary things like You can't make us fear of twice volume of another sphere or you can't divide an angle by three or even five. There's a there's a very limited of stuff they can do with it however for a about a thousand years it was like the golden standard for math and geometry was euclid elements which we've talked about many many times on the show the proof that he had For the area of a circle being half the area of a rectangle is that divided the circle into a bunch of pie basically and made the slices of pie instantly thin and noted that those are triangles about the size of the radius tall with the total base length of the circumference of the circle. Right with you. Basically proved that a circle has area of a triangle with a base of the circumference and height of so. You could imagine this as listen. You take an orange right right and you peel apart the orange slices down so that all the points of the slices are facing up other orange skin. Really give you did that. In the in the orange an infinite number of segments you could make those segments simple triangles right. Yeah and then they together would all have the the area of the circle. Okay so pretty much you taking a bunch of triangles and adding them up to the area. The circle is what you're saying. Yeah and so the circum- the basis of all the struggles all put together. is equal to the of the circle and the height of all those triangles. Because they're all segments of the circle is our so the radius the radius and so one have ten circumference which is two times are leads us to the very familiar formula pyre squared or one half tower squared right. Because you know those of us who follow by heart will refuse to accept pi and tau which is to pie is the real circle constant or and then we go onto archimedes who proved that the volume of sphere is a two-thirds volume of the including cylinder and We did this problem episode or something but simply done what d- simply put. He did this by taking cylinder that encloses a hemisphere right and then a Cohen that starts at the top of the cylinder and goes down to the bottom and they noted that every with every slice the slice of the cylinder mine is a slice of the code was equal to the slice of the sphere so since the volume of cone is one third the volume of a cylinder. It's one of mine is one thirty goals two-thirds again. We might do this on a problem. Episode

Coronavirus: impact on the retail industry

"That the prospects of relief package are now officially zero President Trump said today on the stump that there will be one a package that is after the election. Td On that, depending on how things turn out. But with the virus set to have its way. Once again with this economy, as case numbers rise, there is real damage being done are chosen example of which today is retail more virus means less shopping and eating out. In stores and restaurants can't pay their rent, which means landlords can't pay their mortgages, which means eventually they default case in point the mall owner Pennsylvania. Investment Trust, which is disclosed. It's gotten a loan default notice from one of its lenders. The company says it is working out a deal, but it also says bankruptcy is an option marketplace's Merrill Sarah explains what happens next When it gets to the point where a mall owner can't make its loan payments or has to contemplate bankruptcy the domino's just keep falling from there. David our back is an institutional trader with World Equity Group. Everybody loses out the banks that lent it money. Also the company's investors and the other businesses and people it owes money to for a mall owner that'd be utilities water gas electricity internal employees for PENRICO maintenance guys at the various mall properties. They could all take a hit in bankruptcy filing and that's not even the only chain of dominoes that's been set off here. Malls are one. Of the biggest sources of tax revenue for a lot of towns. So in sales dry up, potentially the community is impacted because now a mall is in generating nearly as much sales tax revenue as it used to produce. That's Dan Sheridan at the Hoffman Strategy Group. When a town gets less tax revenue, it might not be able to hire as many people or clean. The streets is often Joe Minarik the Conference Board says a stimulus package could help. We expect that some form of stimulus support can keep some of these dominoes from falling. For instance, if the federal government allocates more funds for small business loans that could prop up stores and restaurants helping them pay rent until the pandemic has over a stimulus plan would also give consumers more money to spend but that might not actually help malls. A lot of people are staying home because they don't feel safe if you give them cash, that is not necessarily gonNA, send them out to the mall. Again, another reminder the virus is in control of the economy.

How To Help Professionally Successful Women Survive a Divorce With Allison Jeffereys

"Hello and welcome to another top advisor. Marketing podcast. Some of you have said to me on podcast, you know Matt. My Niche is focusing on women that's not an itch. It's fifty. One percent of the population is actually the majority of people on this planet. But today we're going to dive into how you could actually focus a lot more on women in an area that is very, very important and I believe is entirely underserved Alison. Jeffries is a divorce coach and author of a woman's guide to surviving divorce. A woman's guide to surviving divorce, she's also at the end when everybody hanging to the end because she's going to give away something that we'll have link in the show notes but and I was reading to prepare for this and if you know anybody who's been through a divorce if you've been through a divorce, it doesn't matter if you're a man or woman, you'll see yourself in these questions. She's really created this magnificent spreadsheet that will help you navigate conversations. But Allison. Let's let's start at the beginning. What do you do I mean how did you get here? Why are you? Why did you publish this book? Why did you want to become a divorce coach? Well I publish the book as a Personal Passion Project. We all go through life. Everybody has one book in them, but I think the important part of that story is, how did we get to the book? So I headed thirty five year career in the corporate world worked for Fortune One hundred companies Merrill Lynch prudential. Citigroup Wells Fargo worked in the financial sector worked in the securities area at Citigroup was. Managed a part of the country educating financial advisors on how to work with women in a group called Women Company. During that time it was in the middle of all the changes in the laws and regulations around financial advisers and tracking and documenting, and all of a sudden I had one month to take my seven and get it to continue to do my job. I did it. Couldn't believe it. But I, did it. They told me I had to take it I figured whether I failed or not. At least I'd taken it up pass. So I did have my seven had my sixty five. Loved the education of how women relate to money my degree is in psychology. So that was right up my alley really worked a lot on the difference in how women approached things how we make decisions, how we manage or don't manage our money those barriers between ourselves in money, the cultural issues, the professional issues, and all of those things that men had a hard time understanding about their women clients and why it was important to work with them. Left that career and honest to goodness. Being financial adviser with something I never wanted to do. So I. Let all that Go. I. Went Back into the corporate world in at a certain point in my life, I had a chance to stop. Rethink about what I wanted to be I. was on my second divorce. and. It was kind of one of those things where you common denominator here would be meat. So. I had to fix that become a big belieber marriage in I like men so. It was a it was self revelation process did a lot of writing. It became the book and it is a fictitious version of what a woman experiences when faced with divorce. Based on those common cultural and. thinking process. Things that are totally women. That we do. And so that's where I am. Okay. Why why should financial adviser scare? Why should insurance agents care? Why should financial adviser scare? Why is this such an important focus for people who have discussions surrounding money? Well. As you said, women are fifty one percent of the population. I don't know that math works for me the other reason it. Is More critical to financial adviser is back when I was it women company years ago we always cited that statistic that by twenty, fifteen, fifty percent of US wealth was gonNA transition into the hands of women. Well guess what it's happened. So whether women have come up with all this money through death divorce or old fashioned way we aren't it. We control a larger percentage of the investable assets in this country. But because of the cultural barriers because of the social morays that women have been raised with if we're anything over twenty five to thirty years old. We might not be managing them very effectively. And It just makes sense to me if you're a financial adviser to understand how to speak to women to get them engaged in Manning, they're managing their money.

Did he say was cast iron I miss that he didn't I'm just assuming okay. All right.

"Well, this is no longer a problem. So we don't have to worry about it anymore and then, and then that's when all the. Inherent bias, comes back. Now. That that is what happens they just nobody is tending the farm and then it's all back to what it was. Yeah. Did you ever find I mean so you it sounds like you weren't too. You also didn't have time to be aware of your gender when you were running the show completely but. I didn't have a problem with that. I always get along real. Well with all the guys dot hired. They're still my friends. I mean I didn't really feel that they were treating me where or maybe 'cause I'm forceful. I don't I don't know. You're the boss Yeah. But also when you all have the same sense of humor and yeah, the sense of humor made a big difference to me. Well, Merrill, to wrap up but we always love to ask our guests if you had a piece of advice that you could offer to someone who would like to pursue a career like yours someone who's just starting out I, feel like the gift of the career to me, the career is comedy as to not really you look you. Find. Where you can go with it you know like if you can't get working TV then you can work and Prenton if you can't get, I guess it's not printing more digital, but that's still print to me. You just look forward into places where you can. You can apply your comedy I mean pieces on Youtube or whatever the main thing is finding everything. Funny. I mean that's the that's the gift that gift to the whole career is the ability to dissociate. A horrifying situation, it'd be finding it funny I mean that's that's the thing I love the most about the whole career is that you? Walk around the city block and there's nothing funny there at all but you come back with a memory of three things that were funded. Yeah. I say this in the book, but it's it's the thing that I think about a lot which is the image that I always thought about was I guess it's Wiley Coyote on the road runner cartoons painting tunnel and then and then. The runner runs through it, and that to me is what comedy always does you just paint a tunnel and run through it you you can make an escape path for yourself. You're in a terrible situation, but you can recreate it somehow by reframing it in your head. You didn't really do anything but refrained, but it's a tiny little constructive thing. You can do I love that analogy. That's GonNa save me at some point. People tell me that the couple times that I've been in the hospital I just joking I can't stop joking I just. It's a, it's a sickness I guess really you know it comes from. Disease Childhood. But it but I like it. Got Better faster because you were joking around about it. Do you know what I mean? You're not sort of you know I mean Facing. Darkness is the richest reframing. Yeah. Wow. Well, that's not just career advice. That's life advice.

"About it. We'll explain everything. Here's Marco. Merrill Marco thank you so much for being here. It's wonderful to meet you same here. So this is inside Conan and we usually talk to our guest about their connection to the Conan show, which in your case, you were the first head rider of the David Letterman show and then late night with David Letterman. So you really kind of influenced. Everything that came after terms of late night and I. Think a big part of that was an influence on Conan O'Brien. Well, that's what he has said. So yeah. Has he said it to US personally or actually. Yes. It's true. I. There's so many things that you helped create on the letterman show that just yeah I. Mean when he took over late night of course, he wanted to you know they kind of wanted to go a different directions because because everything that you and the letterman showed created had become so iconic and so I think they wanted to try go in a different direction boat and they succeeded that was remaining to make because we had eaten up a lot of directions. Intentionally eating up every goddamn direction we could find. So yeah. So then I was impressed that they were The group who follow it s were coming up with directions. We hadn't eaten yet. It was really kind of the first comedy talk show on it that started at twelve thirty at night, which must have been very liberating. I would think in terms of going in all directions. I guess. So accepted, the truth is that we were going in any direction we can think of no matter what time of day you gave us he had a morning show I right and we were given a lot of advice about what people wanted to see the morning got a morning, right? In every direction we wanted to go anyway. So I was running back because I I used to watch the morning show because people started talking about it immediately and just like Oh my God you've got to watch this hilarious David Letterman show. It's on in the morning we're you getting kind of insane daytime TV or morning TV notes during that show and more makeovers. Where's the cooking segment? That's exactly what we were getting when he was a Letterman was just sort of chomping at the bit together show you know he had had we. And I did so many different shows together before the late night shell launched. Kind of successfully. We also done a pilot before the morning show and we have refining a little bit but we were doing but it was the same general sensibility sense of humor repeatedly, and by the morning show, it was the first time that we are a network before that we were always knows they were calling owned and operated station affiliates. Yeah. Phillies, right that's and you could individually decide whether or. Not You, wanted to take the show. The morning show was for me this weird bath of fire because he wanted to do the show, we were going to do on the and the networks have me in for notes and they gave me a pretty good rundown about women wanted to watch in the morning on television and I remember because I am me saying to them well looks to me like I'm the only woman here I think women well, of course, I had no idea. But it sounded great. It would make sense except for that I am complete Martian and I. Completely disconnected from what women. And also didn't care so Good Melding. Makeover strategy segments and also I don't. You know if you remember the name Fred Silverman sure. He was the NBC guy then and he had figured out that the Letterman show should be done in the manner of a show that he liked when he was a child there over whenever it was there was this thing the Arthur Godfrey show have you ever heard of that have heard of? Yeah. I have not right Arthur. Godfrey was I think he was either a radio he was a radio star radio originally right? Big Big Big Radio Star is not a funny guy. Necessarily you know that kind of wit. Then you know you could go with salad joke. He was funny for. You know he kind of chuckled and stuff but he wasn't exactly funny. Any had a family. So to speak of people on the show and they were singer that did a song every day and like that. So that was a custom that was not any longer on television anywhere and didn't really match anything that we had in mind for what the show was going to be. He wanted a family. So we had a hire a family and in order to hire family we. David. I hired all our friends that we thought were sort of predictably character oriented. You know we thought well, we'll have a family of characters come on because. What would Fresno Ferman one wasn't eleven year old Banjo player. And she would come on every day and Dave would say, what did you do last night? How's your homework or whatever he would say and then she would go well I've got a new song I just learned, and then you play the Banjo for three minutes or whatever. So that was the. Idea they wanted we hired a family and the family were all friends of ours that I'm amazed still speaking to us because. I still feel bad about it. They didn't really want a family like that. Our favorite Joe SETV at the time thinking okay characters and we brought in friends of ours who were really good at doing characters and there was no budget for anything like that nor was there now listen to this one. Think about it for one second if you will writing every single day pieces for four or five different people every day. Yikes is right and there wasn't that kind of staff. There was a writing staff of like four of us. So. We have we ended up doing we really briefly tried this was we were not writing for days because they will simply time to write for day is it on his own? So it was a big mess until it wasn't know wait that show go out live in the morning. That's another thing. Live? Wow how capital L.

"Scientists. Doctors experts that are working with us in I. Mean we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA see us go i. mean certainly you know if cases are isolated, that's one thing I think. A lot of the determination will be our understanding how our community became infected at that will be part of our judgment in terms of whether we should continue, but but certainly if we had a lot of cases, we're going to stop. What is a lot though it doesn't really tell us I know you'll beyond isolated. So. Yeah, he doesn't get into specific numbers but I. It's it's the first time I've heard him publicly state. We'd be willing to pull the plug on the season. If if things kind of you know, get out of control, whatever however he defines that but I love. He's like you know what we need to find out how our community got infected. Right I mean this is check instagram. Well wait a minute. This is not like. Oh, my gosh, we're infected. We need to try to isolate people. Keep them well. Make sure other people don't get sick. It's like we need to figure out who the rat was. Right. Who Was it that brought that in here? This this is like. Oh, my gosh. Russia was paying bounties on American heads right? Who leaked that information? What a minute hold on! I if you're talking about contact tracing, that's one thing if you go. All right. How did this happen? Okay? One of our trainers was in Arizona over the weekend, and he was up one of the bars or something right which are supposed to be closed in Arizona now, but and then they came back. Okay now we're going to do some contact tracing and whomever that person came in contact with then than those people need to be isolated as well then I get that, but it's almost like he says you know. We need to figure out who did it. Who gave us who who who sickened everybody up? Who Mix the stew virus and started scoop in that out. Everybody's bowls. No. Let's figure out who sake. WHO's not saying. How do we stop people from getting sick? The best way to stop other people from getting sick it was just to. Send everybody home, bringing the D. League. Again you're all you're doing. Is You're trying to fill is regional contracts which I'm assuming Sean means millions of dollars, yeah multiple commas. Multiple Commas exactly right so there's lots of money hung up on all of this. Again. Don't put your superstars out there. Although? They're still going to try to get the playoffs into right. Oh, yeah, absolutely, yeah, and of course that's where they're going to make a whole lot more money. Especially since we're all starving were starving for something else. We're starving for that. Distraction were starving to have something to focus on other than this stuff. I'm starving to focus on something other than people not wearing masks. We'll talk about that in a moment Chris.

"Love sitting in the big chair. It is an honor to be joining you today and yeah. Armstrong and getty not fired. They'll be back. I've got bad news yesterday though. If I may open up with a real Downer this morning. I got bad news yesterday. My Wife my wife and I have been apart during this entire. Stay at home stuff right so we've been apart living in different states and it's been. It's been a real challenge for us. you know we've been married long enough that we miss each other, but we can get by. You know how that is. When we were early on, it was like okay. You know you're married and your way from each other. So much. You know like ham kind of crap, so there's so much of that now, but it's been a very long and challenging few months so. my wife is in Arizona and that's also where our oldest son lives. Arizona and she says to me yesterday. She says Oh, I think. She's a Jacob is really sick. And I, said Oh What do you mean? Jacob is really sick? She says well. Somebody at his girlfriend's office. Has Corona and now. Everybody's being tested, but that worked in offices being tested and she says. I think it's possible that your son has the Rona. CNN! com. Tell you as a parent. The last thing you want to hear is that your child may have this this disease. And why? Why for the most part, one is apparent you don't want you don't want to think about your kids being sick. Right I don't want to think about my kid being sick as superior always tried to protect your kids even if he's He's twenty five right, I mean the the guy he did two years. Marine reserve is tough tough as nails kind of stuff. It doesn't matter still my oldest son on still feeling like I feel awful plus. Know what it is about I? I'm the same way. When we get sick, we turn to the biggest babies. We are just such sissies I'm thick. My Mommy. and. This is my son. God bless him right. So I was talking to him yesterday I. was texting. My wife took him some. She said food don't know. She took him some chicken soup or what? It was dropped it off on the on the. Stairs outside their apartment talked to him through the window. You all seen the facebook videos and things like that right? It's really unfortunate. Sad Super Sad. So I'm feeling so awful for my son and I'm talking to him. He Says No, no, no I think I'm okay, but remember he's twenty five and something about being a young male makes. You total doofus, so that's my son. Total doofus right I love him to death, but doofus so as I'm talking to him, he says yea, he says. Kelly I really sick I go said you think it's running as we've been tested, were waiting and I said. Did you get a test to you? Because this is another thing my son will do. He'll be like we got tested. Meaning his girlfriend got tested, but he didn't kind of thing. I say okay. Did you get tessies? Yes, worst nose bleed. I've ever had so if you've if you've had the test with nasal swab, and maybe it caused nosebleed no funsies for sure. They says I feel terrible I. Feel I feel like absolute but. And! He says I think I, think he says, but I'm not going to the hospital I. Don't you know not having trouble breathing by just feel as bad as I've ever felt. He goes I think they call that e symptomatic. No. no as symptomatic means, sands symptoms is in no symptoms. The fact that you feel like, but means you have symptoms. You are not a symptomatic. You're not hospitalized. You don't require. Intervention Care but you are not a symptomatic. God bless you, do oh. So as I'm getting ready for the show today, this isn't going on in the back of my mind. Right and I know talk about rotavirus and we'll. We'll talk about outbreaks and things like that. And we'll talk about what this is gonNA mean. Moving forward here in the fall and I think there's already places. That are canceling events in twenty twenty, one of already seeing some cancellations. And, so this going on the back of my mind and I look, and there's this headline Yahoo News as Corona virus spreads to people under forty. It's making them sicker and for longer than once thought. So for the longest time, we thought okay young people. You know. They're not really getting that sick if they're even getting sick at all. We saw this during spring break. We know we know that there's been an uptick in the number of young people that have that have. Acquired the virus so to speak. They've been contaminated whatever it is. The infection is spreading faster and younger generations and now Yahoo News talked with a guy named Jd Townsend for people who think they don't need to worry who haven't followed guidelines think again. It's a major impact on my life these past few months and continues to have an impact. others are talking about their sore throat tightness in the chest, slight cough. Then the question is what happens in the long run. Some saying I was dehydrated I went to the hospital got discharged, and all the symptoms persistent I was prescribed. Many antibiotics try to clear my chest infection I ended up getting a mouth and throat, ulcers and severe abdominal pain. Now this doesn't sound he. This gentleman is probably going to survive and this. What? I was telling my son to go look. You're probably he goes, he goes. We're going to be finding. You are going to be fine. You're going to be great. But I'm really concerned about you right now. Because this is misery and again as a parent, the last thing you want to see is your kids in pain, right? How many times have we seen? Our kids that are sick or our kids? You know. They bumped their knee or whatever else it is, and just as a parent. What do you think you? If I could just take their pain away from them now I know that's not healthy for the kids I know kids have to learn I know we all have to experience these things on our own, we all. Will grow from these things all that kind of stuff, but as a parent. Your heart still goes out to them, so let's have to tell you that as I'm getting ready for the program tonight. That's going on. In the back of my mind and also going on, is this case load that continues to rise around the country. And I have some major concerns about this case. Load going up and those concerns may surprise you because it's not just me worrying about other people being healthy or other people being hospitalized whatever else it might might be. I'm actually very selfish about the case. Load going up. I'll tell you why that is here. Just a few moments is Chris Meryl in for Armstrong and Getty..

Someone say that Barack arguably more popular than anybody else in the network at the time he might have been you look at the network now and you think about what. It was like there at the beginning. You're at the at the beginning I was. I was there for twenty three years. Wow who hired you? I met with Laszlo and a guy named Dick Connell who is also in programming and both Lonzo in Dick. We're like Hey. Betty needed to see this guy. So they took me up to Betty cones office and had me talk to her and What were you doing in Atlanta? I was working at CNN. Oh I don't want to work in broadcasting so he came to CNN to be an editor on editor. Because that's what I studied in college. They studied television in college. But we learned a lot about the technical side. I also did like plays and stuff so I was on the performing side too but Yeah I would I would I started as a VJ which is video journalists. They call it and what you would do is cute talent to the camera and rip scripts and separate the scripts and gives the scripts to the the the anchor that would treat you like shit who call them out not all of them whose name waters waters was the where he was. Here's the guy with the white hair kind of like cutbacks. Yeah and he would use an entire can of of hairspray every commercial break Lou Lou. Waters Illu if you're listening if you're listening to attack US probably dead so you wanted to get out of there. Well Yeah but I I worked my way up to Satellite feeds where I would taken the The feeds from the different outside reporters and put them on tape. And then I was like the tape person so I would have to run like four different machines during during any news show that I was on kind of like a DJ. Yeah and they don't do that now because it's all computerized but the WHI. How'd you get the cartoon I saw on the Company Bulletin Board? Well I. I saw news that Ted had had bought the Hanna Barbera Library. So I know it. He's going to do with that. And I just saw the job listings at CNN said cartoon network entry programming. What does that mean to be an entry program? It was like that's kind of a ground floor job you just taking cartoons scheduling them for air. So you went and met Laszlo met with Lonzo. Do you remember what that was like? Yeah he was nice then he he had just come from. Tbs and before that he was he worked in the mailroom so so we were all kind of humble little tiny employees in the tiny Turner Broadcasting System. That was back in the day where it felt like a family organization because basically the ladder was me. Laszlo Betty Ted. So you're always like four people away from Ted. Wow The ted come by you. Ever see him now. I only saw him at CNN interviewing he was getting interviewed by Maria Shriver so lasso hires you sit near him. What are you guys? Do this program cartoon in. That's basically. Oh Yeah we program cartoons. We would come up like about a few months into it. We started coming up with stunts because they wanted to focus on a different character each month so I think the the the month before space goes I think was Morocco mall from Secret Squirrel and then So we had planned a little secret squirrel marathon around that and then and the month of June of ninety three was space ghost month and so we were just sitting around coming up with ideas for a marathon and crap like that and thing is khaki that we're coming up with names. She came up with space. Ghost coast to coast. And I guess Lonzo kind of had this idea of Basically had doing talk show we. I being the editor that I was Took US base goes cartoon recorded Denzel WASHINGTON OFF OF A CNN entertainment. Show and kind of through it all together in the editing booth and that's how the pilot came to be so you're a program guy and you moved up presumably in the ranks. So how that works I was. There's no like level of programming but Lonzo thing about Lonzo. Is that when we started? You know we had such low salaries because CNN just had really low salaries. But I have two jobs when I worked at CNN. Two jobs ass Shannon. No I had a CNN job. And then I worked at Bennigan's server. Yeah you remember how much you made at CNN. Fifteen fifteen an hour. Fifteen thousand dollars Shit. You have me beat man. I was a I was making five. Wow then I went to cartoon network and they said eighteen fifty and eighteen five eighteen thousand five hundred hundred house like wow can eat another meal with then then Lonzo. I don't know how he justified it. Or anything would give Khaki and I like seventy five percent raises or whatever back then and it happened twice and then I think he couldn't do it anymore. So space goes comes along and does your programming job go away. I didn't stop programming. Until Warner Brothers. Order twenty six episodes of space girls. That would happen. Yeah I I was working on space ghost until maybe episode Tan A- and then I was just kind of getting tired of the BS and Decided I wanted to just cool it for a while? It was the BS. I'm sure people look back on what what could be that way from a show it was. I can describe what it was like. During the Warner Brothers twenty four season because it just felt like you were locked in a room and yelled at every day. But I don't know I think I got tired of. It seemed like at the time that the loudest person in the room. We'd get their ideas put on paper and I just couldn't yell anymore. Who was there it was it was a Khaki Matt Moliro Lonzo and.
