"Everyday people were stupid or wrong or whatever i actually said. We need a better job to win. Because that's actually what the job politics is simple. I mean he was just so clear on everything so The attacks on people were due to a important purpose right and again like we're seeing the toxicity manifest online right now as we speak and i look. I don't know how intentional it is. Francesca i don't know if the intention is to divide the left what i do know. Is that the behavior of the very person who was being talked about in that clip is dividing the left and makes i mean. That's his bread and butter. That's how we make some money and when people get mad at me for calling him a bad faith actor you can get go ahead and get mad but i had the distinct pleasure of working with that guy and understanding that there was no guiding principle. There was no ideology. There was cruelty to others behind the scenes and honestly now just transparent cruelty to people on the scene like bragging about bragging about it. So that's who he is that's who he is and i. The thing that i loved was that michael had the balls he had the courage to call it out whereas right now you have a bunch of people taking to the bullying of of clowns like frigging door. And it's it's really embarrassing. It is the focus on winning. I just wanna double down that that. That jimmy and other people like him and left us your haggling and getting cloud off of tearing each other down that is not winning and the people who are actually doing the work people who are d- are campaigning. People who put their bodies literally on the line that's winning. You know so so. It is important to remember that and you know. Keep your eye on the prize. And and don't don't get distracted. I have to show my cat now. This is for michael for michael. This is all this is for everybody. Everyone needs a squeeze in a hug and some love..

"We did a lot of that But he he also again like he would he would be measured and he'd be careful in how he would go after people who identified as part of the left But when he would do it there was always a purpose for it right and he did do this quite a bit with jimmy door and i think that this mash up video this is part of a longer eleven minute long video which you guys can all watch on youtube if you want But someone did a mash up of his response to a caller about jimmy door and i think that what he says here is exactly what i wish. I did a better job in communicating. But what i think. He did a great job in communicating. So let's watch. Hillary calms director tweeted. Something or simple. Your vote shaming. That's a big phrase. They like well. That's exactly what you're doing. Look the the beef with jimmy. i'm not trying to create. hillary com. Director tweeted something. Or some and your vote shaming. That's a big phrase. They like well. That's exactly what you're doing. Look the pr the beef with jimmy door. I'm not trying to create broad reactive populism. I'm trying to create a left path to saving democracy and generating some type of what we call socialism which means different things to different people. But that's an actual thing and a major part of the thing is building alliances across lines that include not a necessarily alienating people who has an example sport andrew gillum and i know we have a reputation as being the most smug and arrogant show and youtube which is awesome and hilarious. And i'm definitely funnier but the endless. What aboutism the endless false equivalency is. The endless moralism an endless. Just focus on electoralism is is bolt in its substantively wrong. It's miss educating people about how to think about politics have nothing to do with how much you curse how much you hate near attendant. Or hillary clinton nothing to do with whether or not you want to be wonky or not. Jimmy is a funny entertaining an inner personally in my experience. Nice guy but for all of the substantive reasons those are problems and how you're doing politics and also includes recognizing than today's world. The primary threat is the fascist. Running it not something that john edwards said in two thousand nine that you can make a clip about to do a false equivalency. That's bull it's wrong then. You have to admit that he's a fox news on the last. No i don't know is not fox. News helps win. Fox news has a strategy. Fox news relentless. Do you think fox news would do over seventy percent of their clip on how he's not a real conservative. He's a sellout days. Not fox news on the left. All if you mean stylistically maybe so. And i keep telling you. That's the part. Have no problem with. I will match my support for bernie sanders and that primary against anybody's i- never was in a position of saying that people who voted the other way from me that we're normal..

"Like patrick cockburn who i you know i might not always see this. He probably looks at a little bit more from the kind of assad lens that i do. But he's there and he's an incredibly good reporter and you know he's basically saying like i don't know if this is possible but like assad is going to say but he needs to release political prisoners and they need to stop engaging in violence from occurs to have some protection like there and the refugees much more needs to be done for refugees. There's actually in terms of substance. I think what's funny. Is i think there is actually a left position. It's just that everybody's fighting on all these relative margins spiracy theories it's like it's become a stand in proxy for other arguing it's simple simple clear nuanced and there's a reason why certain people wouldn't attack him you know for saying what he said in that video at which by the way. He had similar comments in several videos on syria But i do find it fascinating that like. No one dared to treat him the way that i've been treated Lately as a result of basically saying the same thing about assad right anyway but that's whatever beside the point. What i loved about him was just his honesty and how right he was like he was well read. He was intellectually curious but more importantly like he had a guiding principle that informed all of his commentary and that's why he's consistent throughout all of his content because he there was never any pandering to what's popular at the moment there was never any. Bs like that. He was just very clear in in in his beliefs in what needed to get done he cared about strategy. More importantly cared about winning. And that's why we did call out. People like jimmy door his content because he saw them as an obstacle to winning. And to be sure we're experiencing those obstacles right now My god yeah counter counter narrative fantasy that line that phrase of like being so far left that you wrap yourself in a counter a counter narrative fantasy. I love that like that. Yeah you excuse everything and we see that right like that. You put people ideology before fact and honestly. It's something i appreciate about you anna because you god you dive through and read so much news every day and if there's a twist in the story you're going to name it if there's a if the sought continues and people need to know the context you're not gonna tucker carlson it. You're going to name the even if it doesn't support your ideology because actually it brings up more questions and that's a great conversation. And then people get convinced and then people learn lick. It behooves progressives to be curious to ask those questions and to be able to save two things at once. Walk and chew gum baby like. We forgot that god. We forgot how to do that. I know i know it's so depressing And i'm gonna go to the final video because we're running out of time But you know it. A lot of people. Ben burgess was talking about this during his tribute to michael and it was his tribute wonderful. Everyone go checkout give them an argument I i love the videos that he chose to share featuring michael and i also love the you know tribute that he gave personally and he talked about how he you know. After michael's death a lot of people are like making. It seem like he was this perfect on flawed person. Who never did anything wrong. Like he's he was human flawed in other ways right. And i don't i don't wanna get into his flaws but one thing that has been standing out to me is people seem to think that like he was always above any drama or dunking on people. One of the things. I love doing on his show. Was doug on day ruben..

"Thank you and stay tuned for the rest of the show. Today is The one year anniversary of honestly like the most shocking death that i've ever experienced and that was you know. Michael brooks dying unexpectedly of You know he had a blood clot which is terrifying because this could happen to anyone really This is something that sudden and doesn't have any symptoms ahead of time. And i remember a year ago nando calling me after i had finished. Ty t. production meeting in the morning and he told me and i couldn't even. I didn't stay on the phone like he told me. And i just. I had to go immediately. Like lost it Again believe he's gone even even now it's hard to process it so we'll start with some substance. There's some funny stuff in here too but the first video I also shared on weekends. Which is the show. I host with nando on jackson and it has to do with Michael brooks is thoughts on us imperialism. Let's watch surveilling tendency. Where if somebody's opposed the us interests. We have to sanitize them. We can't have intellectually rigorous conversation. I think that doesn't work. Because i actually mainly even just frankly for if you want to look at the propaganda purposes. I don't think that kind of both about everything. Works and i would actually make a really hard and fast distinction. Frankly between the enormous complexity of something like china which we just need to learn how to be adults about which is going to push back against The new cold war fear mongering warmongering attempt also combined the fact that that push against china's delusional. I mean how are you how much you really going to bully a rising power where your entire supply chain relies on them and that it is very important to understand how china looks the world how they conducted foreign policy. I think it's ridiculous and foolhardy to make excuses of where china you know abuses rights. Or whatever else. I just again. I just think it's silly. And also you have to look. At the entire asia in the middle east on big variants here. In terms of iran syria wherever else but and again abuses committed by these various governments leaders like assad but the main story is pushing away. Us interventionism u. s. imperialism which is extraordinarily aggressive in the middle east. That nuance is seems to be lost. On most individuals who purport to be on the left and weigh in on foreign policy international relations. Anything having to do with american imperialism because yes it's true that american imperialism has been destructive. It's been awful and we should fight against it but to do that while simultaneously minimising the crimes committed by dictatorial regimes is not anything. I'm interested in. Because guess what i come from. People who have dealt with genocide and. Thanks to the disinformation peddlers of the early nineteen hundreds The international community for a long time denied that they were victims of genocide. So for him. A sit here and white. Wash the war crimes of other dictators. I think it's ridiculous. And i'm not gonna do it. I'm not going to engage in it. The reason why i loved michael is because he was able to hold these thoughts. Together right without You know being accused of being pro. Anti pro american imperialism like he was just able to kind of like distill every situation in a way. That was easy to understand. Is it a digest and was just accurate. It was accurate. Yeah i mean. I think in terms of that like that clip right there. It is really interesting. And i can't was. He was saying that like there are. These crimes are being committed by like the chinese government. That shouldn't go unnoticed by the left. I believe that's sort of what he was saying. And i think that's really right on for someone like him who was so who was actually focus on internationalism. I think that american exceptionalism does happen on the left to where we ascribe like superhuman powers to the american empire or the democratic party. And you peel back the curtain. And you're like oh they're just a bunch of ads just doing idiot stuff you know like not everything goes back to this country. There is international as there are people on the ground in china in syria in brazil. You know like a and we need to be smarter than what our governments do. Which is equate. Chinese people with their government equate iranian people with their government and go after them a equate cuban people with their government and go after them with sanctions and war and we need to be stronger and smarter than say. Look no it's about solidarity and men. Michael knew that michael was was was into but like we. We really the left. You know we had in the sixties. There's sort of resurgence in the eighties and central american solidarity. But we've definitely lost the international solidarity piece of how do we support workers and environmental activists and women's rights not from a place of imperialism not through our government but like through social movements surf. The internet through. You know through interview in such exactly exactly. Yeah he was very clear on syria's well very clear on it So i want to go to this next video triumphant. They're like all the republican emails. I got we. We go over this a lot. Some people find it necessary. They can't just say make all of the true statements which is that. Us intervention in the beginning and generally besides preserving some protection with the kurds is a very bad idea that we supported through the gulf states all these jihadist groups and brennan horrible actors. That's all true and assads of butcher. Who's vastly disproportionately sort of culpable for most of the violence. They're like this is all correct and some people seem to feel that you need to have like some counter narrative fantasy about him in order to be anti interventionist which i just don't agree with but i think the other The other really important thing coming out of this though. Is that even if you look at somebody..

"Dollars in potential revenue without a football season. Michael Brooks, executive director of the National Association of Collegiate, Eastport says shifting focus to EA Sports is not going to fill that hole. East Force. Yes, there is revenue that's out there. Is it anywhere close to what the bigger schools With basketball and football are seeing normally. The answer is no, It's not. There's not even close. We're still trying to figure out what revenue models are out there. He says it could come from tickets to watch players compete online corporate sponsorships or donations, setting up some top and computers and training center won't cost nearly as much as a foot ball stadium, but that initial investment for schools that don't already have a sports programs. It's too risky when budgets or getting cut, says Anthony Henan, who writes about higher education at the James G. Martin Center, a conservative think tank. I don't think there's actually been A really good case Studies showing that there's been any profit coming from these things. Yet more schools are trying to get e sports program started since the pandemic. There's been an uptick in colleges asking the Association of Collegiate Esports how it all works. But Hannon says it's not clear that fans who usually watch traditional sports will reroute their passion to EA sports. I don't imagine many baby boomers are goingto give up on football. And instead Piveteau watching, you know their local university play on twitch is sports teams were somewhat affected by the pandemic. Some matches used to happen with both schools in the same arena, which yeah, not happening. We're not going to have many competition matches as much recovered. Tyler Salhany TRO is a freshman at Marietta College in Ohio. He's there on E Sports Scholarship. Nearly 200. U. S colleges offer around 15 million per year in scholarships, according to the Sports Association. Not every player on the team has a good enough computer at home or in their dorm. So he masks up and goes to Mariana's E Sports Center. We have put up barriers between the PCs to that We have more people in the room to practice for the different teams at the time. Saleh Nature is looking forward to several tournaments just this month and he dreams of going pro. His coach Matthew Williamson, says more people are getting invested in watching people play video games, and we're seeing that same hype trickling down. At the collegiate level. We live some things just like the fan base for professional teams is growing. It's only a matter of time for colleges and with traditional sports at Marietta and other schools.

From the Michael Brown showed formerly of the same sita's show formerly of the White the young Turks Fame and just a general of rule, good egg right when it comes to political commentary especially from the left. Sometimes you get is weird in in in in in social, you'd get people that will sometimes to the left a bit to the center right the they weren't straight up liberals. They kind of rain this stuff in a bit to be a little bit more palatable all to no sound, so you know. Head in the skies, but I appreciate Michael Books because he was an unabashedly left person left leaning for the most part, right. He was very much a Bernie Bro He was very much strengthen stringent, so defender, a wolfing socialism, all especially diverted off socialism, and just generally just came across ready were he didn't do in a really snarky, so of you know. Looking down upon you, which you know, most of these kind of you know elite, left east end up, doing a really straight up marathon way and plus he was super funny in it. It's just unfortunate that he passed away, and he's impressions of Dave Rubin was some of the best things you'd see out there, but oversea I think he be remembered of course his book. He read the survey just published recently a couple of months ago. which you know, we're probably thankfully got that it oversee. He saw for cod debate that will go down in history books, but you just go down just being a really solid due to our full public again it much as the flowers as she should have dessert when you're around unfortunate passing.

That was what he must have been his late thirties that Michael Brooks right suddenly succumb to some kind of. Illness or Something to his nervous system it just you know essentially lend to die, which is really really seidman for everybody involved especially during these times when everyone's banding around being with their family and friends. Seeing what really matters lives in the know from watching a couple of shows, couple episodes of Michael Book show recently. He did mention he had a couple. Health scares body and really kind of get into. It could use A. He was an extremely private Ryan respect but Just such A. if ever, there was a bad time to lose somebody. This'll be algorithm. Drink coffee, so for some praise, everybody connects with Michael Books again. If you know familiar with employees, check him out of some of his best appearances or best work happened to be on his own show I kind of enjoyed him more, and therefore he kind of go be cynical and snark you on with the young Turks, and and and could be settled, Sam Cedar by once he started doing his own show regularly. He really came into his own. Especially, when need Balance Coffee Co., Hersi and producer, who are probably devastate now bloody Omer, fulsome praise, go out to them as well and if it's not showman just. Just a really bad time in it. Really is some meal. Some cultural grace people who had to have opportunity to even cement the legacy normally not being taken away from US far too soon. Man Jeremy yet appeared valuable role to play in shaping landscape of politics, the US for decades to come as well so it's a shame I really wish to again for some praise God. He's family and friends.

"Yeah, like I don't know what's going to happen now and that are all these now going to turn into virtual events. If so, that's great, but. You know they're. They're not getting the paychecks that they used to. You know for live events. With a celebrity having to get on a plane and travel, and and meet their fans in person, everything now is virtual where it's. You know because they're only working maybe three or four hours from their home. They're not making them to exit. They used to me, so was a trickle down effect for everyone in the industry. Yeah, yeah, so! Yeah! I don't know what's going to happen. I mean right now. I do have live events scheduled, but everything was now like I said earlier close founder cancelled until you know net twenty twenty one so I have a friend who a lot of the Broadway Broadway musicals, and so when they're traveling around the United States for right now you know. They thought a couple of months ago. Like Oh. Yeah, we'll open up again. Maybe in July and so now they're. Looking at everything's everything's been shut down for the rest of the year I was like Oh gosh. I can't even imagine that because you know that's your livelihood, you know who's in the course of questions of well if I was casted for cast for this and our next year. I don't know what's going to happen and so I'm sure there's a lot of uncertainty. So little worried. Right now that you know with all these. Protests and and I. Just heard on the news yesterday that now you know there's. A spike again in Arizona and you know people got run out on. Yeah on memorial weekend, and on Mother's Day, people are doing huge social gatherings, not wearing face masks, and not being six feet apart and doing social distancing. I mean. I feel like we're just going backwards, you know. All this work we've done for the past since March to try to love lower flat the curve as they say, but now you know especially with all these protests all around the world just in the US, but I see it in Europe and everywhere people are protesting, going shoulder to shoulder, and some were masks, but others aren't and and I was just talking to a friend of mine the other day massive just watch and the. The next two to three weeks there's going to start being increases again, and then we're going to you know. Go back to square one and have to start all over again and if I can speak for you as well Michael's not talking about the protests as far as negating them, but just simply saying that the non social distancing is causing pro reese rise right right now. I'm I'm total in support for for all the protesting. That people are more. You know heated about the protests, and I don't think are thinking about the virus. Yeah, exactly, yeah, well, you know this kind of makes me think of the whole thing years ago and I'm dating myself as well. Some of my younger listeners may not know who or what this is, but there's a company called blockbuster blockbuster was a place where you go and rent movies, so they were. is so they of course. As that you, you'd go to a place in you. Get your movie and there was years ago. I think it was two thousand and early two thousand and accompany came to them, and said Hey, we have this opportunity to stream videos and movies to people's House directly and block. No, we're not going to do that. We're the leaders in this and so enforcing. They didn't do that so that company that little company became net flicks, and as Netflix's has created this I mean it's not like I don't even have to explain what it is. And unfortunately, because that time blockbuster didn't make that pivot and kind of evolved to the world needed, it unfortunately went bankrupt, and so I think as we. We as a as a world is looking at how things are going to change. We have to really be mindful of what worked. Yesterday may not work tomorrow in other words where today may not work the following day, and so you really want to be not you, but we all want to be mindful that as we understand the world, and and even when things are going really well, we still want to make sure that were at the top of our game at the top of craft, because as we can really understand that subtle nuances of of culture of our workspace we can really make sure that we continually grow and develop, but without brand development, and if mediocrity sets in unfortunately. We will be Kinda like blockbuster and won't be able to to fully flourish and grow with what the world needs right right. So but once again we will all be Netflix's we will not be blockbuster.

"I did a whole turnaround. And I worked for that company for ten years, and I was booking their conventions like mentioned star, Trek, and Xena an all different other types of events calling the talent at Nashville. Ability and booking them, and then they do events here in Los Angeles, and they would do them all around the country as well in your Chicago and Florida Dallas all over the city all over the country, so after working for ten years with them They decided that they wanted to cut back on their shows. They wanted to make me. Me Part time and I thought to myself that no I think I'm just GONNA. You know bowing and quit so I quit, but I as I was thinking about this. It was like well over these past ten years I've been calling agents and managers, and making all these contacts and meeting, even other promoters and such, so I had an idea that. Why don't I just call up an agency that I know and that I've talked before in the past and create my own personal appearance department. Create for you. Yeah, where I would represent the the their clients. And I did and I went to work at this agency. It was one of the top five agencies in Los, Angeles, and again I, didn't know how to be an agent at then had no experience I in basically, all I knew was tattoo book talent where I was on the other side like booking clients. Now now I was my job was to start pitching the clients, so I went to work at this agency I had this great mentor who taught me how you know to be an agent and then as soon as I. Literally the first week that I started to work there there was the writers strike that happy. Oh here in Los Angeles so at first. My boss wanted to just keep it in house and just book you know celebrities that are with our agencies for different events, but then I was getting promoters asking me well, Hey, can you get so and so from so and so show, and this and that and I looked them up on I in DB, but they weren't one of our clients, so I turned to my boss and and I, said look, because now there's a writers strike. Strike. Do you know this particular manager? And she said Oh. Yeah I know them that they're great. Tell him I said hello, so I started to outsource myself by with the relationships that I had with other agents and managers, even at different agencies, and was able to start. You know basically now, and even to this day is I can go to a promoter and say okay well. This person's not on my client list, but who are. Are you looking for if you're looking for like a particular actor usually Dina ten times I will go on IMDB and look them up and if I know that agent or manager I'll pick up the phone and I'll call awesome. Hey, I'm working with the promoter. That's doing this event and they're interested. Make knocker for to your client. That is amazing. That's basically how I started my my career I really love how I mean abolition of that. That fact I think I'm not I, think research states that most individuals will have four to five iterations of vocation, and so as we kind of think about that in other words, the evolution of who we become, so I really like to hear the different versions of how your life has played out and to hear how that's continue to evolve. What was it when you think back on that that one moment when you left the? Job here. I guess we worked for ten years. I wonder how different your life would have been had you not said? Wait a minute I can still do this because in that moment you had that choice to say. Do I do this on my own or do I? Marine Department with his another agency, or do I go back to doing what I was doing before and I think that's a really powerful. Powerful lesson, because when we're aware of that kind of slow down and say just because doors have closed doesn't mean I can't open a my own doors while I was getting I was getting that even from the actors they were like. Michael you should open your own department. You should go to another agency or you. Should you know so? I was already. Wheels were spin. You know even before I quit and. I wanted to be kind of my own boss and Matt and Free My own department, and when I went to this agency. Again you know I knew nothing about being an agent, but I knew how the promoters side worked, and I knew what. That would entail so with that experience. I was able to bring that to an agency and and start developing a department, and now look at you i. mean you know all facets of the industry? Yeah Yeah, and I mean not to toot my own horn, but most people say my name, you know fight known as I guess now I, get now calls emails them. You know an agent or a manager will get an email from a promoter and a automatically turn it over to me, and they say look. I don't know you know who this person. person is you want to handle it for my client and nine ten times how I get paid as the agent is I charge the promoter of plus ten percent. Yeah, so they they're asking. Yeah, if they were asking for an a client to do an appearance of make twenty thousand dollars for a weekend I would ask for plus on top of. Of that and get my commission so nine out of ten times I. Never even take commissioned some client which I'm sure they love that as well because I mean. That's from a business standpoint I mean that's of course you're going to have take everything as you can too good for being able to go above the line and to ask for that additional percentage for you, so and even you know even if like I've had before the password promote, a will say to me love. They're not on their client list, but Can you get me? You know so so and so and an olive them up on I in DB, but if the offer is you know six figures all old call. Manager and say look you don't know me, and but this is what I do. I have an offer and plus promoters willing to pay a plus ten on top of that six figure salary. You know a paycheck, so I mean it's a win win for every time. Have, you ever found that just I'm sure this is everyday life, but have you ever gotten really discouraged during your time as? Says everything you've done so far. Now? Is the time where I'm dismayed. Because everything that's happening. You know in the world and you know here in Los. Angeles you know the governor's, there's these phases phase, one, two, three and four and We're slowly entering I guess now phase three but my my phases face four where it would be back to live concerts. Conventions venues like that so and then, and then to be honest with you. Even when we do reach phase for it could be you know the end of this year the beginning of next year people are GonNa think twice now about going into a convention center with five thousand people attending you know and being so close I've been to Germany where where I was at an event discussed December just last year before this whole thing broke out, and there was like ten thousand people there, and you're walking shoulder to shoulder squeezing through and trying to walk around the Convention Center so.

You'd say because it's what you've always done. No, yes, sometimes, it's important to not reinvent the wheel, but it is important to reflect on what you do to make sure you're hours working smarter and not harder just because you've done the same thing over, and over again doesn't mean that today. It's still relevant or that. It's productive when you look at your daily schedule. Have, you ever stopped in rearranged some of the activities that you do because in doing so you may realize that you could be more productive. Should you do things in a different order? If you're an entrepreneur and you look at Your Business Model? It's always important to reflect on how to do something slightly different. When you look at the different aspects of your business model, it's important to say if we didn't have this particular process. What would be different? Or if I didn't have this main client, what would I do because when you can continue to evolve and look at what's working for you and slightly tweak, you'll find that you continue to grow and develop your business model, or let's say you're not an entrepreneur, but you do want to grow and develop. Look at your friend groups. The people who are your friends. Are they growing developing as well and psychology? We have what's called the law of the group. Meaning the average of all of your friends together will determine how far you grow and develop. So. Let's say you're the smartest person in your group. Compare that to someone who may not be the most educated unfortunately when you hang out with those other people who are slightly different than you. Your motivation level is going to decrease or your productivity level is going to decrease because it out. Shoe with the group is, so it is important to always reflect on your friend group. I'm sure they are amazing people, but you always want to surround yourself with individuals who are more successful than you another thing to look at it, just even your health and wellness. Sometimes the older we get, the more we have to be. Be Mindful of our Diet and exercise. Our metabolism doesn't always work the same way we become older, so it is important to reflect on. How can you grow and develop and be more mindful of how to Tweak Your Diet and exercise? The whole reason for this lesson is to simply have you reflect on what is working and how to slightly tweak it so therefore you're always growing and developing, because if we don't take a look at this, unfortunately, mediocrity will set in and after a while. We will continue to do what we've always done, but remember what we've always done doesn't mean it always works or as always effective. I have a fantastic yesterday Michael Brooks. He has a wonderful inspirational story of how he became a personal booking agent, and how he continues to grow and develop his practice, even during the height of the quarantine. Stay tuned..
