PublicSq's Michael Seifert on Avoiding the Anti-Musk Lynch Mob
"Our next guest will be at America Fest speaking all about the new corporate warfare. Joining us now is Michael Seifert from Public Square. You should check out the Public Square app and download it. So Michael, I tweeted this out. It was seen by a couple million people. Now, more than ever, we need to stand with X and defend free speech. We must boycott the ex -boycotters. Apple, Comcast, IBM, Lionsgate, NBCUniversal, Paramount, Home Depot, Warner Brothers. They all are boycotting X. Make it hurt, end subscriptions, don't go to their movies, light them up in their comments, cancel the new set of AirPods, etc. Stop supporting those who hate free speech. Michael, your reaction? Well, I think it's pretty simple. The new battlefront is in the world of economics. Consumer spending is your new weapon. And the world of politics has played out very differently than it was even 20 years ago. 20 years ago, this stuff was happening, but it was behind the scenes. Companies would wage war on your values, but they would do it without social media exposing them. But now we are learning in this new digital age just how much the executives at these companies hate your right to speak your mind. Media Matters running a fake hit piece on Elon Musk and on X simply because of his views to value free speech. These companies then kowtow to Media Matters because they're so afraid of losing their virtue signaling points out in the public square. And what ends up happening? Well, X is stripped of significant ad dollars, but we the people had a clear response. We wanted to stand up and support X because we want to support free speech. The people want liberty, not tyranny. And that is now being played out in the world of advertising, consumer spending and engaging media content. It's as you described, Charlie, if we want to win, it's got to be bigger than just voting every two and four years. It has to be with the movies we watch, the way we spend our time, how we spend our dollars and the platforms we engage in. So good on X for standing strong. And we as a company at public square are proud to continue supporting

"But even you do it once a week, commit and create your content calendar as many weeks ahead of time as possible. I work in batches for my own personal brand. I do that every quarter. I have one day when I just create content for my email. And another really good workaround for this is to create an automation, especially for people who are just signing up to your email list, which leads me to the second big mistake. So many brands focused on getting the sign up, getting that email address. And then nothing really happens after that, which is kind of a missed opportunity because I think it's like the first 48 hours when somebody just join your email list. They are most likely to work with you. They are interested in what you have to say. And they're just kind of waiting to be guided. So having or not having a welcome sequence. That's another big mistake I see people making. Boy, that's OK. So talk to me about that. What would a welcoming sequence look like? OK, so you need to think about your buyer's journey, right? So I have a problem. Let's say I want to lose weight and I am interested in a solution that gives me what I want, which is probably losing weight fast, but in a healthy way. And I go to Google or I scroll Facebook and I see your ad or I see your page on Google and it's promising. And I go to your website and I learn, I read your blog posts. And then there is a pop up or an opt in opportunity which says, hey, do you want to learn how to lose seven pounds in 30 days? Sign up here to get all my healthy weight loss recipes. You're never going to be hungry again or something like that. So I get that. Right. And my curiosity and my problem is satisfied to some extent. But that doesn't mean I'm going to be ready to buy something from you immediately. And it also doesn't mean that I'm going to be a loyal fan because you haven't done really anything beyond just satisfying my initial problem, which was the curiosity. How do I lose weight in a healthy way and maybe not be hungry? So most people, they just deliver that lead magnet, that freebie, and that's kind of it. Nothing else happens. The welcome sequence continues the journey. And you can continue that journey without being salesy, but by being customer centric. And there's plenty of strategies like what you should write in each email. Some people have three emails, five emails, seven emails. These are all automated, so they're not sent manually. And you can send them day after day or one each two days. It kind of depends on how fast it takes for someone to convert from email subscriber to first time customer. But in the beginning, if you don't have that data, you can just test it and test it with the frequency you're comfortable with. And that welcome sequence is like, hey, hi, so I see you. You've just signed up for this list of recipes, which is amazing. Congratulations on your commitment to finally get closer to your goal. But here's the thing. We've had one million people who got that PDF. And unfortunately, only a small percentage of them are actually using it, which is why over the next few days, we're going to share a few tips and we're going to walk you through some success stories for some of the people who have lost weight using our method. Make sure to open your next email. We're going to tell you more about tomorrow. And you can share valuable content like here are our most popular three videos that talk about this. Go watch them now. Another one could be like, tell me more about you. So what do you do? That's for segmentation and collecting customer information. Another email could be sharing success stories like here's what other people are doing right now. I know you've just signed up for this and you've maybe maybe you've already cooked one of those recipes.

"millions people" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Million people that have fled their homes the defense minister of Israel says that Hamas has lost control of Gaza at this stage but really as you say the focus is on these hospitals and really beginning to test the limits of where the limit of self -defense is which has been really a question I think for everybody since the beginning of this and everyone has a different answer to that but we're starting to see that progress a little bit particularly with the United States which as we know is a key ally for Israel in this battle. Now we did speak to Israel's economy minister near Barkat on Bloomberg Radio and he seemed to echo a lot of the determination we're hearing from the Israeli government to destroy Hamas. It does make you wonder what those limits are Ali. I think it's a good question and it's going to be determined I suspect in part by what the United States says and how they say it. Right, so we're talking about a death toll, this is according to the Palestinian authorities of more than 11 ,000 people in Gaza, right, and two -thirds allegedly are women and children. This is an absolutely huge figure of people and many of the allies of Israel, You know, you heard it from President Michael on Friday, who himself called for a ceasefire, and now you're starting to hear Joe Biden talk about restraint. Blinken himself saying that too many Palestinians have been killed. Sullivan saying no firefights in hospitals, and we know that it was at sort of the U .S.'s behest that we got some of these humanitarian pauses. So really the question is, where does it reach its limit? Again, a lot of this stuff is going to be behind the closed doors of discussions with Biden and Netanyahu, not taken out into the public, but you're starting to notice it in a lot of the public statements we're hearing from U .S. officials. And as this fighting goes on and appears to intensify, the question goes on as to how much longer this war can continue, how much more intense we could see that fighting take place particularly around these population centers that do have very sensitive operations in Gaza City. Completely. And then there's the after question as well, but let's deal with the for how long question, which is, you know, again, what Netanyahu has said, and he said this as recently as a day or two ago, was that it will take many not years, right? So he's not ruling out the year's quantity of time in this. it'll He says take less time than the US took in defeating ISIS and al Qaeda, which again does not really narrow a very sort of slow and small window of period of time. But he's, you know, from the very beginning given himself a lot of flexibility in of terms how long this can go. And now the real question, this we see another split potentially between the US and Israel, is what happens afterwards? Netanyahu's suggesting that they will have indefinite control over Gaza. The security operation said they they say don't want to rule it, but they also say they don't want to relinquish security control over Gaza. So again, these are all the sorts of points I'm going to see to develop. And of course, the big question is, what is the future of Netanyahu and whose decision will it be once there is peace about what happens with the relationship between Gaza and Palestine and Israel? And before we get even to all those questions about the future of Gaza and the future of the Israeli government, there's still this ongoing discussion about freeing hostages in Gaza. What's the update there? Completely. So the latest that we've heard from this is that Biden spoke to the Qatari emir. As we know, Qatar has played an absolutely fundamental role in the sort of go between Israel and the United States and Hamas. We hear again and again that there is potential progress on a deal, but every time we hear that, it sort of backslides. So again, there has been more and more talked about it over the last few days, but I think you really cannot really rely on anything until it's fully secured. What we do know is that Israel has entirely ruled out a ceasefire until all the hostages have been freed. And in our last 30 seconds, the discussion we've had with Israel's economy minister, it seems like there's a determination as well to keep fight this going, even if it damages Israel's budget, even if it damages the economy. Yeah, I mean the impact on the Israeli economy has been very sort of COVID -like in many respects where, you know, obviously there's a war effort underway, but we've subtracted, let's say, 350 ,000 people from the workforce. That's about 8 % of the Israeli workforce. When you go down the streets, you know, many of the businesses are closed, all the universities are on pause, all of this stuff is really a standstill. again, But they see this as an existential fight, so they're going to be willing to pay the price.

Fresh update on "millions people" discussed on Thom Hartmann Program
"And by the way, how's that going for you, Ron? You're down 41 points in your own home state. Let's go straight to your phone calls. If anything goes Friday, let's go to Marvin from New York and New York. I told him, turn it on high and let it run. Turn it on low and let it run. So I told Tuma, Marvin, are you talking to us? Yeah, I'll call you back. I'll call you back. Yeah. Marvin, on the you air? Hello? Yeah, you're on the air, man. I don't think it was us. Yeah, I'm sorry. How are you doing? Well, I'm about to find out. Go ahead. Speak your peace. Yeah, going to I'm say one thing and then I'll take my hands off of here. Yeah, Biden. Everybody's running around talking about Biden is too old. Yeah. Everybody's running around talking about it too old. I don't think it's Biden is too old. they're I think worried about something happening to Biden and Kamala Harris becoming the president. Yeah, that's part of their argument. And they started doing that. I shared it, my own story that a conservative friend of mine from college shared me a racist sexist meme. It was low key, right? It was dog whistling. But a little meme that showed Kamala knocking on the door at Halloween time. So this was even before, this was before the election, before Joe Biden was even elected. And it showed a woman knocking on a door with a Joe Biden mask. And the next frame she pulled down the mask and it was this weird, pretty disgusting drawing character Kamala Harris saying, she was the real, she was the real candidate. That's been her argument for a while. Oh, he's old. And by the way, if you're not afraid of a black woman as your president, right? That's been their argument for a long time. My real concern about Joe is just two metrics. One, vertical leap and two, 40 yard dash time. Now, I don't care if you're a basketball fan or football fan, I can go both ways. If you're a basketball fan, you know that vertical leap is one of the things that combine us. Shaden Sharpe, who's my Portland Trailblazer is my team. And Shaden Sharpe has something like a 44 inch vertical leap. It's almost record setting, right? And you see it on the court. It's great. And I'm not saying a president has to be able to jump Shaden like Sharpe. But what do you think Joe Biden's vertical leap is? It's just a couple inches at best. I mean, it's gotta be, I mean, it is not anywhere close. It's not even high school level, much less college or pro level. But let's say you don't care about basketball. Let's talk about football. Once it's 40 yard dash time, all of us know the football combine, when players, you're evaluating the 40 yard dash is one of the most important things that gets evaluated. And if you could have a 4 .6, 40, right? You can be a linebacker. If you're a 4 .40, you can be a safety or a cornerback. But if you're Joe Biden, what do you think his 40 yard dash time is? I mean, it is slow. It is slow. It wouldn't qualify for any team, not even a Canadian football league, no team at all. And somehow these liberals think this got guy to be president when there is not a team that would draft him. They wouldn't even invite him to combine. They wouldn't even give him a tryout. Come on. Let's go to the Pierce from Coos Bay, Oregon. Hello, Jeff. Yeah, I had something to say here. You know, I and my wife firmly believe that Trump is an existential threat to our democracy. And I think maybe the best plan to prevent Trump from regaining the presidency would be to run someone else on the Democratic ticket. Yeah. So you and I disagree, but make it but make sure you have a person that you would push. Governor Newsom or Governor Brashir or the governor of Pennsylvania, I'm not sure I can't remember his name, but all of those folks are polling way above Trump. Yeah. And the thing is, is it polls, you know, maybe way off. Now, I'm a Joe Biden man. I voted for him. I've really, really love the man. And I want him to be our next president. But if the polls are true and we're going to lose our democracy to this damned hump, just I can't you know, I'm just looking for some way that we can save our democracy. Yeah, no, I hear and I hear the motivation. Your motivation is good. And so is your call. I appreciate it. My own take is, is I am not going to add personally, I'm not going to add my voice to those calling for a terrifically successful president who has been better than other presidents of my time to quit his job because of critiques that began largely with the right wing. That might be a little simplistic. I live of this earth. I would not, I would not begrudge him if he decided that one term was enough. I would not cry many rivers of tears if we had to get excited about a different standard bearer. Uh, but I am not, you know, I am not as worried about his 40 hour dash time. I'm not as worried about his, his, and I don't think his lifespan, I mean, lifespans are getting longer. I don't, three years older than his opponent. I think Joe Biden beats Donald Trump. That's what I think. He beat him last time. I think he beat him again, but I think that, and I think our energy and our voices could be best focused. They didn't have to be focused on Biden, but can be best focused about the thing you did say was the existential threat to our democracy, that it needs to be disqualified. If you try to overturn an election, the next one, it should be disqualifying. And if courts are too paid to say that, then voters need to say it and they need to say it in droves and they say it to their friends. This election ain't about Joe Biden's age. It's not actually even about either candidate. It's about us. The election about us, the kind of people we are, the commitment to democracy that we have, what we are going to allow to happen or not allow to happen. What kind of people are we? And we can't be the kind of people that allow the subversion of democracy and then reward it with a comeback after a loss and an attempted coup. We just can't be those people. We can't be the people that somebody who cheers the Confederacy. We can't be the people who low key threatens nuclear or who high key threatens that we are going to get rid of Obamacare when 40 million people get their health care from. We can't be those people. To me it's less about the presidential war. It's about us. Let's go to Lee from Evanston, Illinois. Go ahead, Oh, Lee. thank you, Jefferson. A couple of things. First, what we have here with this Biden should step aside. That is a Republican strategy playing out. You know, they know that Biden has done a hell of a lot and they made the press say, well, Biden hasn't done anything or I didn't notice that Biden. So nobody in the country knows that he's done anything. And then when they want to push him out of office, they know they can't beat him unless they talk to people and just saying, well, we got to have somebody win and Biden's apparently getting killed in the polls because he's too old. Well, who put out the too old message?
A highlight from The Economic Impact of Business Owner Outmigration
"It seems like our local GOP leadership, well, I'm not gonna say the conservatives, but the constitutionalists, they don't really care about the community. You never see community initiatives or outreach. And the Democrats and the socialists have that locked down. I mean, as much as there's crime and there's this and that, they're still out in the community kind of giving back. I mean, Mark Poloncarz was just at the Grider Street Community Center a week or so ago, giving out free hot dogs. And unfortunately, that's what people, the voters, the Democrat voters who do outnumber us, that's what they see. It's like instant gratification and they forget everything that's been done. And how do you defeat that? ["Oh, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa"] Hey, welcome back. Mike Lomas, Glenn Wiggle actually taking off, Ron Rheinstein in with me. We've got a special guest on the live line here. We'll talk a little bit about what happened last night. Erie County stuck on stupid again. The pain, the pain. Nationwide though, just not Erie County. Yeah, we're going to talk to an optimist in a little bit who's a workhorse here in Erie County, Nancy Ortecelli. But I got to be honest, I texted her this morning. I'm like, I feel like drinking. And it's like seven o 'clock in the morning. Can we take a personal day? Can we take a personal day? You're just so beat up. I mean, it's just, you know, it's like, you have to ask yourself, how could these people be this dumb? Well, how could you be this dumb? And it's not even rhetorical. Everything you've touched has turned to shit and you continue to vote for the same exact shit. It's just unreal. Because here's, this is just from a sleepless knife yesterday into today. People that left the cities, they're just like, I got to get away from the crime. I got to get away from the poverty, all the above. And their shitty voting has metastasized like a cancer in the suburbs. And it just keeps going and going and going. Well, they don't show up. That's what's so frustrating. Well, there's also that. I mean, you look at the numbers and it's like, how in the world do you not show up? I'm actually going through my phone yesterday. I'm saying, don't forget to vote. Don't forget to vote. Who's on the ballot? That's what I've got to think about. Like, how could you be that freaking stupid? I know. But the other, I mean, even if you look at an area where I grew up in Chictawaga and yes, the demographic has changed substantially since I left in 1998, but for the fact of the matter of the third world that has been imported, the taxes, the last county executive or not, the supervisor, she hammered two increases on the property assessments. It's back to back. Highest taxes in the country. And on top of that, the last one, because she's, again, the politicians, how they're just full of shit. Oh, that's our bad. You know, we're not even, well, maybe up for a second. Oh, we're not going to do another reassessment for two years and then literally the next year, here comes the next increase and all our bad, but we won't do it again. However, you got to pay. Yeah, sorry about that. And that's, and you look at the votes that were cast for supervisor. And I mean, again, how close it was and it'll go to recount. That's it? That's the amount of people that voted? Yeah, well, the GFP didn't do anything with absentee ballots there. So it'll go the other way. Before I forget, download our app, search Financial Guys Media in your app store and be sure to click notifications so you don't miss our weekly media drops. So don't forget about our app. Let me introduce Nancy Oreticelli. I was able to grab her. I know she's extremely busy. Nancy, what is your title today? Besides a miss of everything. I don't know, like, what is your exact title? You're everywhere, you know, constitution coalition, all this stuff. What is your, do you have a title? I mean, Antifa has called me a lot of things. So I know I work for an assemblyman, for assemblyman David DiPietro. I am on the executive board of the Erie County conservatives. I do, I'm the president of the constitutional coalition of New York state. So yeah, I do a lot of things. So that's who I am. I just, I believe in freedom and liberty and no matter what it looks like, I'm not a person who gives up and talking to a couple of people this morning, they're like, why do you sound so happy? I was like, well, I'm used to this. This is how it is here in Erie County. It's nothing new. It's not like - I know, you'd think all of us between the political environment here and then the bills and sabers, we'd be used to disappointment, right? We're like, let's roll out of that. Like, all right, I get it. Let me ask you, let's start out with the county executive race. I mean, what happened there? You know, you can't, first of all, he's literally, the cops are showing up because he's restraining a woman. We had people die in a storm because of his mismanagement. We had a record amount of businesses closed because of the way he handled COVID, right? I mean, you can't ask. And then he drops off all these illegal immigrants. They, 13 out of 50 of them get arrested and brought it up on charges. They destroy a hotel. I mean, it's like, okay, maybe you're not happy with Chrissy, but boy, you have to be some kind of a mental midget to say that's a good - And crimes on the rise. And crimes on the rise, record number. We don't want to enforce laws. Here's your appearance ticket. Yeah, number two in the entire country for Carstola. Number one is our neighbor Rochester. Number two, so what the heck happened? So people are misinformed. And it's like you just said, when you called and texted people and they said, who's on the ballot? Nobody cares anymore because it seems like our local GOP leadership are, well, I'm not gonna say the conservatives, but the constitutionalists, they don't really care about the community. You never see community initiatives or outreach. And the Democrats and the socialists have that locked down. I mean, as much as there's crime and there's this and that, they're still out in the community kind of giving back. I mean, polling cars was just at the Grider Street Community Center a week or so ago, giving out free hot dogs. And unfortunately, that's what people, the voters, the Democrat voters who do outnumber us, that's what they see. It's like instant gratification and they forget everything that's been done. And how do you defeat that? And I think the GOP needs to get out in the community more. I mean, they've had their get out the vote rallies that of consisted maybe 20 to 25 committee members. It wasn't the community. Do you know what I'm saying? And they don't - No, I get it. I was gonna say, but how - Nothing beats a good sailing hot dog. Yeah, here's your meat cylinder, go vote for four years and more tyranny. It's true, it's true. Well, that's, you're right. But the thing is, is, but then you take it a step further. You go fill up your car, holy shit, part of my life. That's even higher than it was a month ago. You go to the grocery store and our household, we do okay. But every time, between my wife, myself, and our two kids, and here's four bags, that was 300 bucks. Daughter, oldest daughter and my wife were down in Tennessee last week. My daughter was looking at the possibility of University of Tennessee. And she says to me, she said, "'Dad, do you know gas is a dollar a gallon cheaper there?' So I went through this whole thing about, you know, it's taxes. She's like, you're kidding me, just taxes. I said, yep, yep, that's the difference, difference between one state and the other. And every time somebody puts gas in their tank, it's an extra 30, 40 bucks here, as opposed to down there. So - So that's you and that's me, but that's not the urban voters. The urban voters are in poverty because of Democrat policies. But yeah, it's still vote that way. But they still vote that way because they'll come and give you free stuff a few times a year. They'll give you hot dogs. They'll give you backpacks. They'll give you this and that. A lot of them maybe don't have vehicles to fill up. Do you know what I'm saying? That's a fair point. But it's, you know what? Now that we're talking, Nancy, that also works against us too. I mean, we are top 10 in the country in poverty. Yeah, top three, I think. Per capita. Yeah, the city of Buffalo is, I think, two or three. Here's the, you know, our fair city. To your point, and I think you mentioned this, you know, the GOP will run on reducing the taxes. And Nancy, you said, these people don't pay taxes. That's true. That's not a problem for them, right? Although it is funny when you interview some of them, they actually think they do. They'll say, well, it's not fair. We're paying our fair share. Like, now you don't pay any federal taxes, and you don't pay any state taxes. If you look at it, and this isn't to be negative, but, and again, money's money. And let's just say they make $50 ,000, they're married filing joint. With your standard deduction, you're probably, you have $25 ,000 maybe in taxes total. Yeah, well, most of them. But that's what I'm just saying. And then you're probably getting a real fund. That's right. Most of them are public assistance. That's right. Talk about the women vote. I mean, you know, you look at other places, other parts of the country, and the women have really rallied together to really change things. And it just, you know, last night, I was really hoping that like town of Amherst, town of Cheektowaga, the women would step up and say, okay, we've got a guy who's clearly, you know, he's abused women. He's threatened a process server, a female process server that he's going to shoot her. And then the cops are showing up. I mean, well, I would think the moms would say, and it's amazing to me, I'm watching his speech last night, I'm thinking all these hypocrite Democrats, they're all, oh, believe the women, believe the women, unless it's a Democrat that can shove the left -wing agenda down your throat, then we don't believe them. So here's my take, two points I want to make. You know, talking about the women vote, I had a phone call the other week and somebody, it was actually Stephon, and he said, do you know a strong woman leader in Western New York who could do calls for Chrissy? And I was like, no, do you? I don't know any woman. There is no strong woman. I said, what about Lynn Dixon? They already had her. And I had thought about it. Mike, you probably remember a few years ago, I came to visit you. I wanted to start a women's group, but the coalition took off. And you know, if there's any women out there, women who would like to start a women's group, I'll help. I mean, I can't run it, but I'll help to get strong women elected. But there isn't. And then you have Moms for Liberty here in Erie County, but for some reason, the GOP will not unite with the grassroots organizations. Moms for Liberty have been phenomenal across the nation because the establishment has partnered with them. I don't know why they won't do it here. I don't get it. And if you would just unite, and it's the same issue with the conservatives and the Republicans, it's no secret we are outnumbered by Democrats. And so what happens with the conservatives and the Republicans who should be working together? The Republicans try to take over the legislature seat that was supposed to be conservative. You know, it was supposed to go to Lindsay Larrigo and they fought it with Jim Malcheski. I like Jim Malcheski and Lindsay Larrigo. They're both great people, but the GOP spent so much money on that primary that they had nothing to give to Chrissy to get her name out during this election because nobody knew who Chrissy was. And then they tried to do a party takeover in Evans where they switched a bunch of Democrats to conservatives, the GOP there did, to try to take over that party. And Ralph Larrigo did a lawsuit and the lawsuit is not finished yet, but the GOP candidate lost miserably. So they're focusing on things that should be uniting us, but they're dividing us instead of uniting. Look at West Connecticut and Lancaster. Those towns won amazingly for their town boards because the conservative committees and the Republican committees there are united and they work together. And I don't understand what the whole issue was with the Republicans trying to take out the conservatives this summer. It was baffling to me. So instead of focusing on Mark polling cars, you're gonna try to take a legacy away from a conservative candidate that it was already in the bag for them. You're gonna focus on a fight that was already a constitutionally minded candidate that was in there. It was a given, what a waste of resources and what a waste of time. That's a shame. Yeah, that's a shame. Absolutely. Well, the financial guys are here to help. I'd like to get you on the radio as well. We'll find that, hopefully we can find a strong female. That's what we need. You need the female vote. I mean, last night, the female vote shows up because Mark had been called, accused of holding a woman, I don't know, hostage or whatever. I mean, holding against her will, but they didn't show up. And they're like, God, that's so frustrating. The last thing before I let you go, the frustrating part to me and folks like Ron is we're in the business community, right? And so we're constantly getting involved. We're constantly trying to do our part. And sometimes I feel guilty because I look at somebody like you and I'm like, oh, I feel like a slug. But yeah, like, oh man, I really do. But the business community, I am just at awe this morning that they didn't show up at all. I mean, at all. How many restaurants did Mark destroy during COVID? How many gyms did he destroy? Now, some of these folks were strong enough to make it through, but I'm gonna be honest with you. If I owned a restaurant, I am never forgetting that. Now, I might be a little bit different of an animal because his picture and Gal Bernstein's picture would be on the front door and there would be a message that says, hey, if you're these people and you're walking in, do not bother, right? I mean, that's where I would be. But I get it. Some of these folks say, well, you know, I don't wanna be that aggressive. Okay, could you send Christie a hundred bucks? Could you put a sign out front of the restaurant to say, hey, just saying, I mean, like, not one. Well, that was the fault of the GOP, that they don't know how to fundraise. They really don't. And like I said before, their fundraisers consisted of just their own committee members. The public doesn't want anything to do with the GOP because the GOP has alienated them. Now, Michael Crocker is a good guy. I've met him. I've worked with him. He's really good, but he's got a lot to fix from the previous leadership. And yeah, I wouldn't want that job. I know. I know. You know what? It's funny you said that because I was talking to Glenn about it and Glenn's like, oh, they needed this. The hardest part about that is so many people have left. When you look at, and I'll say for America, I think it's a great thing, right? I mean, Florida is gaining delegates. New York is losing delegates. Florida had a $21 billion surplus. New York is going to go bankrupt at some point. I don't know when, but the math doesn't work, right? You cannot have the, and the 25 % of people that have left, they're all the top taxpayers, right? They're the ones paying the bills. Mike, this all sounds racist. Stop. That's right. Math is racist. But I mean, that's, even if the people that leave and, you know, from clients and friends and family that are in these Southern states, they still care, but they got up and left. Oh yeah. I mean, it's just - Well, they're not voting, right? They're not participating. Even if voting, but like, even if they've sent a check, like you said to Chrissy, but that's just the whole thing. They're gone. They're gone. I know, but you have, for the people, and I guess maybe this is where my deficiency comes with this, is that I'm like occupying common sense, I guess, way too much. But how the hell do people, again, you look at this, this sobering statistics or drive around the area, what the hell is coming here? Nothing. What is leaving here? A lot. A lot. What is beneficial that is derived from low -T polling cars? Let's just go over the last five years, the scandemic. How many people were affected by that? And how many businesses were lost? How many people, again, how many people have been Vax injured? Because, well, I can't go to the Bills game or the Sabres game, but seriously, I'm gonna roll up my sleeve. You were able to see the playoffs wave, but now you got my old car died. Or, again, my employer's forcing me, because this shit bag in City Hall is following crime wave Kathy, or Andrew, I killed your grandmother, Cuomo. Then you take it further. How many people died in nursing homes alone? One of my best friend's sister died in a hospital alone. Why is that, you may ask? Oh, because she tested positive for the Wuhan sniffles. Yes, I know. And these stories are out there. Yeah, I know. And yet there is zero messaging. And this is from Chrissy. This is from the GOP. This is from any Republican candidate that you can absolutely, and again, voting aside, fundraising aside, but if you got that message out there, debt would resonate. You need money to do that. You do, which is fair. And you need lots of it. I said from day one, I said for Chrissy to win, she probably needs a million bucks. And I think that's a fair number. And I think she got a total of about 150 ,000 from the business community. She was well, well, well underfunded. And I don't know, I was down there last night, I don't know if you got a chance to see her speech last night, but you could tell she cared. There was a few conservatives are sending messages, oh, she can't cry. I'm like, bullshit, she can't cry. She can do whatever she wants to do. You have the stones to step up. Then I was able to see her in the hallway before I said, Chrissy, that she's like, oh man, I feel like a failure. I said, Chrissy, I said, there's a million people in this freaking town, a million people. Do you know who was the only one that stepped up against this piece of shit, Mark Poloncarz? You. So don't let anybody ever tell you that you shouldn't do what you wanna do. There are so many armchair quarterbacks that oh, I should have done this, should have done that. I'm like, Chrissy, you're the only one. Guess what? Mike Lomas could have ran. I could have ran. I could have signed up. I didn't. Now - I feel like I told you to.
Former ICE Director Tom Homan Exposes National Security Failures
"Homan, former ICE director and president and CEO of border911 .com. Tom, thank you so much for taking the time. I want to play a piece of tape here that has been making the rounds and then we'll riff on it. Play cut 54. I've done this job for over three decades. I've never seen numbers anywhere near this. This is drastic. This is the biggest national security failure that I've seen in this country since 9 -11. This is historic. I promised President Trump when he announced it, he goes back, I go back, and I'm going to run the biggest deportation operation this country has ever seen. Because these massive people being released in this country, 9 out of 10 will get order removal based on immigration court data. A judge order is removed. We're going to find them and we're going to remove them. There's no consequence. We can't fix the border. We're going to have a consequence in the Trump administration. Tom, tell us about it. A second Trump term, the largest deportation force ever seen. Tell us more. I've met with President Trump many times. I was one of the first guys that he met with when he re -announced his coming back and I told him I'd come back in a minute. I told him I'd come back for free because I'm so pissed off what this administration did. We gave this administration, Charlie, the most secure border in my lifetime and they unsecured it. The first president in history's nation that unsecured the border. So I promised President Trump I'd come back and people need to understand, these millions of people that are released in the United States, if you look at the immigration court data over the last decades, people claim asylum at a border. Nearly 9 out of 10 never get relief from U .S. courts because they simply don't qualify and they're going to be ordered removed. And we're going to remove them under the Trump administration because if you're demanding due process, which we give them, due process doesn't mean squat. It's a final decision of the courts aren't carried out. So we're going to find the 9 out of 10, they get order removed, we're going to locate them and we're going to deport them because there has to be a consequence to breaking the laws of this country. What do you have to say to some people that would, you know, say it's not logistically feasible to deport millions of people? You know, it is very difficult and do I think I removed 20 million people? No, but we do it one at a time. No one's off the table. Listen, if the immigration court, if the judge orders somebody removed and we don't remove them because it's too hard, then let's shut down the immigration courts too because the final orders obviously don't mean anything. No, we need to carry it out. And look, if we work with Congress and pass a legislation that if you get an order of removal from the courts, you don't qualify ever for amnesty, for DACA, for any benefits, that will certainly help to self deport many people. You've got to cut it off. You've got to stop rewarding people of illegal behavior. Whoever they're going to do to become fugitives, they get order removal. They don't leave. They'll hide out. They'll hide out long enough for the next giveaway, the next amnesty, the next DACA. We can't allow that. That has to stop.
A highlight from Ep406: Get On All The Platforms You Dummy
"Now you're going to get more downloads, more listeners, more plays, more ratings and reviews, and will end up happening is it'll trigger algorithms where your podcast playing platform sees that you're doing great. They put you in front of more and more people. And that means that your podcast grows. Most hosts never achieved the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. Hey, podcaster, it is your host, Adam Adams. And on this episode, I really want to talk about getting on all of the different platforms we titled this episode. Get on all the platforms, you dummy. Now, I think that was more of a hook like, hey, wake up and I want you to wake up. Why? Because I get so many people that come to me. And they tell me that they're on all the platforms and they tell me that the reason why they know that they're on all the platforms is because their hosting platform syndicates it everywhere. That's a lie. And I'm sorry to tell you, I'm sorry to put this in to your head right now. You're not on all the platforms. You are not unless you work with a team like ours that really knows how to get you on every single platform. You're not there. You're not there just because Libsyn or Buzzsprout or you name the hosting platform. You're not there just because that company syndicates, quote, quote, everywhere automatically. You got to do a little bit of research. I want to give you a couple of examples. When Facebook this was a short stint when Facebook decided, hey, I want to jump on the podcast bandwagon. I think Facebook might have been saying, I think that we need to keep people on our platform. They're going to all these other platforms. They're going to name the platform Apple and we're losing out on attention. And so for us to get more attention, let's offer to be a hosting platform for podcasts as well. So they tried it out. Now, not very many people moved over. It didn't end up working out. They didn't put enough money behind marketing. They didn't spend enough time on it. They didn't do it right. They didn't really launch it very well. I don't think Metta has been doing everything perfectly lately. Who knows? We can save that for another thing. Anyway, Facebook ended up trying to do podcasts. And guess what? You probably never got your podcast on there. But guess what else? Our 60 clients at the time all were on Facebook within 10 days. Within 10 days, we had 100 percent of our clients on Facebook. Then they went out. And that's fine. That's not proving the point or taking away from the point. The point is that you need to get on every platform that you can. Let's use another example. YouTube comes out and says, hey, we're going to be a hosting platform now, too. Now, you could already have your podcast video on YouTube. You could already put even the audio as a video with a still image on YouTube. Those things already could happen. But that was never good. Being on YouTube was never that great. And why? Why wasn't it? And it's basically because unfortunately, when somebody has a regular old YouTube channel, they're listening to your episode or they're watching your episode. Maybe they're subscribed. Who knows? Maybe they found you because somebody forwarded it to them. The point is that as they're watching your video, YouTube is going to basically say you should watch these other videos. And here's the sad thing. They're watching your video. And let's just pretend that you have about 150 people that have watched it. That's a pretty typical number. So you're on YouTube and 150 people watched it. And what's going to happen is YouTube is going to say, well, you should watch this other one that 70 ,000 people looked at because we trust them because they have a lot of people that liked it. Or you should watch this other video with a million people. And so the little guy or the little girl, that person, let's just say you, who only has a certain number of downloads and it's not over a million per episode on YouTube. Well, what's going to be happening is YouTube is going to push people in front of the other ones that are doing better. That's the sad thing, but that's a reality about it. So when YouTube said, hey, I'm going to have a podcast playing platform like Apple and Spotify, for example, what ended up happening is my team again within 10 days all of our clients are now on YouTube for the audio version with where people can subscribe for the podcast. So within 10 days, all of my clients, boom. And you might not have even known that Facebook ever did that. You might not have known that YouTube, as I'm recording, is currently doing that. And that's because you well, I guess there's a lot of reasons. You're not doing all of your research and you're not finding out how to do all this. But working with our team, we are always trying to find out where all the platforms are. Regardless of how you get on the platforms, you work with our company. Great. You find it on your own by like a Google search, wherever you search, then you're going to be able to connect it. And so here's at the end of this episode, here's what you need to know. You need to go and research unless you're already a client of ours and working with us. You're everywhere. You need to go and research all of the other places. I'm going to use the next couple of minutes to share another platform that all of our clients are on. It's called Ganna, G -A -N -N -A, I think is how it's spelled, Ganna. And it's a place where a few years back in India, they came up with a podcast playing platform and it became one of the biggest playing platforms. And a few different countries, especially last year from the day that I'm recording this, about a year and a half ago, Mandarin, Chinese and Spanish became huge, huge listener base. So China and for example, Mexico had more listeners than they did the previous years before. And with Ghana, this allowed a lot of more people in eastern India, for example, to become listeners of podcasts. It gave them a great platform that was for them. And then you might be saying, OK, Adam, what you're saying, what I'm hearing you say, this is you talking, I'm imitating you right now, not to be rude. You might say this, well, Adam, sounds like that would be good. But you keep telling me that the listeners are from India and like my podcast is in Germany. My podcast is in America. My podcast is in Canada. My podcast is in Europe, wherever my podcast is in the United Kingdom. So here you are saying like, I don't really think you're onto something, Adam. If you're trying to tell me to be on one and that's in a totally different country, like I don't understand the point. OK, I get you. I'm understanding with you. I'm with you right now. You don't get the point. Yet. Let me share it with you. Even if you have a podcast and let's just say you're in Germany, you got a podcast in Germany. You only can serve people in Germany for your business. I don't know what your business is, but let's just pretend you live in Germany and your podcast is in Germany and you can only serve people in your country. And so you're asking, so why would I need to be in this other country where there's a lot of listeners growing just like they did in China and Mexico recently? And here comes the answer. The answer is you want to trigger some algorithms so that you can get pushed in front of more people that can work with you. So regardless if you think you can serve them, if your business is also in that country, you will still want to allow your podcast to be on every platform. Get on all the platforms you dummy. Get on all the platforms you dummy. OK, so you're going to want to be on in the platform Ghana, even though most of the listeners are going to be in India, because now you're going to get more downloads, more listeners, more plays, more ratings and reviews and will end up happening is it'll trigger algorithms where your podcast playing platform sees that you're doing great. They put you in front of more and more people. And that means that your podcast grows, your podcast will grow as well. And also it's a small world after all. I mean, we've all been to Disneyland or Disney World and ridden that ride. It's a small world after all. They say it like a million times and it's still not in your head. It is a freaking small world, which means that in India or the Philippines or Mexico or Germany or the US or Canada or Australia name more countries, that's fine. I'm going to stop there in this country. Many people know people in other countries. Many people can refer people. So on top of you just getting more downloads and stuff on top of you triggering algorithms so that your person can find you easier, you will also have that third benefit where somebody listening, let's use Ghana and India for a second. And I hate to sound racist or however this might sound, but I'm just going to finish the sentence anyway, because I have a shit ton of friends who are Indian and engineers or I .T. So I'm just going to use the friends that I have as the example. So I've got a friend who lives in Texas. They are Indian and they migrated directly from India. And so they even still have that stronger accent as well. Right. So they haven't been here their whole life. They are a first born immigrant. They moved here. And well, guess what? When Ghana starts growing and your podcast starts growing in Ghana, what are the chances that that person who's listening on Ghana in India has a close friend or family member in Silicon Valley, a close friend or family in San Antonio, Texas, Austin, Texas, Dallas, Texas, has a strong family member and named the city. I have so many close friends that are Indian, that are engineers or technology or whatever, and they migrated or their parents or the grandparents migrated and they need to know my podcast. So there's still more chance using that third example of referrals to be able to get in front of my right person. So let's just say that you've got a real estate podcast. You syndicate deals, which means that you raise capital so you can buy bigger real estate and you get out up on Ghana. Awesome. Engineers and IT make a lot of money. They both do. And so all of a sudden you got that person listening and they might just tell their friend who lives in name the city in the US, for example, or in Australia. Maybe you're in Australia. I know that there's a lot of good technology there as well. Technology is a big thing right now. And so not to be prejudiced or saying that everybody of a certain race is a certain job title. I know that's not true. It's just that I have a shit ton of friends that are Indian. They're either engineers or IT, just like most of the time. Sometimes they're lawyers, sometimes they're other things as well. But I just so many of them are those two things. And just depending like where you are, what you're looking at, what you're looking for, there's no reason not to be on every single platform. So I feel like this is like a racist episode. I hope nobody thinks that I'm being negative toward anybody in any way because my heart's not there. Anyway, going back to what I'm saying is at the end of this episode, what we want you to take away, it's work with a company like ours where we can make sure that you're always on every platform that's possible so that you can get the best end result, regardless if that listener is the best listener immediately. There's three reasons why to do it. And if you don't work with us, for example, just do a really good research on a search engine where you're trying to find what are all the places possible. It's a small world. After all, I'll see you on the next episode. You're not alone if you're ready to either get your very first affordable microphone or if you're ready to upgrade your equipment to some legit podcasting studio equipment, because on all of the forums over the last few months, I'm seeing this all the time. Even my own personal clients that work with my team, they're ready to get that next microphone. They're asking us for it. Additionally, when I'm on discovery calls with potential clients, they're always asking for this stuff. Hey, what mic do you recommend? Hey, what lighting do you recommend? What webcam should I be using? So many questions. And so what we did, my whole team has put together a PDF so that if you're one of those people who is looking to either get your very first affordable microphone or if you're ready to upgrade your equipment to more professional podcast studio equipment, whether it's soundproofing or whatever, we've got you covered by going to growyourshow .com forward slash PDF, and you can download the PDF for free or right there on the webpage is everything that you would have and you don't need to download the PDF either way. Just go to growyourshow .com forward slash PDF, which will put you to the podcasting equipment that me and my team have personally vetted. I'll see you on the next episode.

A highlight from Ep 191: How to Build Amazing Work Relationships (with Michael Bungay Stanier)
"So here's a story I've heard dozens of times. You have this senior staff member who needs to be managed out and everyone knows it. But instead of addressing the problem, you hire someone underneath that person to support the poor performer. It feels like no time at all, and that rock star you hired resigns, a new opportunity they just couldn't pass up. But we know the truth. Gallup tells us that close to 60 % of employees who leave are not leaving because of compensation. The main reason? Managers are simply not investing in meeting staff needs as valued employees and human beings. As author and today's guest, Michael Bungay Stanier, says in his new book, people don't leave organizations. They leave managers. This new book, How to Work with Almost Anyone, will be the foundation, the anchor of our conversation. And its foundational assumption is that work success is intrinsically tied to the relationships we build, cultivate, and nurture, and that most of the time we leave the health and fate of these relationships to chance. How crazy is that, right? That's why Michael wrote this book. He believes it's time to commit to intentionally design and manage the way you work with people to actively build what he calls the BPR, the best possible relationship. Can you imagine if your relationship with your employee or your supervisor was safe, vital, and repairable? You don't have to imagine. Today, Michael will share a very clear and compelling recipe. Greetings and welcome to Nonprofits are Messy. I'm your host, Joan Gary, founder of the Nonprofit Leadership Lab, where we help smaller nonprofits thrive. I'm also a strategic advisor for executive directors and boards of larger nonprofits. I'm a frequent keynote speaker, a blogger, and an author on all things leadership and management. You can learn more at joangarry .com. I think of myself as a woman with a mission, to fuel the leadership of the nonprofit sector. My goal with each episode is to dig deep into an issue I know the nonprofit leaders are grappling with by finding just the right person to offer you advice and insights. Today is no exception. Michael Bunge -Stanyer helps people know they're awesome and that they're doing great. He's best known for The Coaching Habit, the best -selling coaching book of the century, and already recognized as a classic. His new book I referenced, How to Work with Almost Anyone, does what it says on the label. Michael was a Rhodes Scholar. He dabbles in the ukuleles, so do I. He's Australian, I'm not, and lives in Toronto, Canada. I've been there. Learn more about Michael at www .mbs .works. Michael, it's great to have you back on my podcast. What I totally love about your work is that you work to solve workplace problems with clear, compelling, simple, and actionable strategies. Your books are easy to digest, not because they're overly simplistic, hardly, but because you don't mince words, you get to the point, and the points you make really stick. So I am delighted you've written another book so that I had the excuse to have you back. Welcome. Joan, what a very generous and kind introduction. Thank you. You're right, I have a mantra when I'm writing a book, which is, what's the shortest book I can write that's still useful? Because so many books are so long and there are so many words and there's so much fluff, and I'm trying to unweird stuff for people. The coaching habit, I think, unweirds the whole idea of coaching, so everybody can kind of go, oh, if that's coaching, I can give that a shot. And here I'm trying to unweird this idea of how do you actively manage the health of your working relationships? Because it's a bit daunting, it's a bit hard, but I'm trying to give people an easier way into that. So you're kind of north of BlinkList of and south a 300 -page book. That's a lovely way to put it. Yeah, I'm like that. So because I've written a book, I always love to know what compelled you to write about this topic? What was their igniting incident? Sort of what drove you to do it? Because you need a drive to write a book, regardless of how short or long it is. Yeah, it's mostly a miserable experience writing a book, even if you like writing books. And I do quite like writing books. Well, there wasn't an inciting incident so much, Joan, but part of what I realized is my best contribution to the world is to be a writer. Like of all the things that I can do, and I'm a speaker and I can coach and I can facilitate and I can design learning and training, and I can do all of that pretty well. But the thing that is most distinctive in what I do is how I write and how I try and move things from complex to simplicity on the other side of complicated. Which is, by the way, no small feat and definitely a superpower. Oh, thank you. So I actually sit with the question, what's my best idea? What's my best guess for the next book I should write? Because I've got all sorts of ideas. I have ideas all the time. A vast majority of them are not very good ideas, but which are the ones that keep showing up. And this idea of actively managing a working relationship, having a conversation about how we work together before you have a conversation on what are we working on. Well, that seed got planted 30 years ago by a writer called Peter Block, who I'm sure you know of as well. And he calls it social contracting. And I'd been using this tool with my clients, with my board when I had a board, with my team, with my direct reports, but also with my peers. And I kind of fine -tuned how I thought this could work best. And I just realized the power of this tool. And I'm like, you know, if I got one tool that I could teach that I haven't taught yet, it might be this whole idea of a Keystone conversation in service of how do you build the best possible relationship with the most important people with whom you work? So you say that we should all be shooting for this best possible relationship. And I mean, there's a part of me that says, oh, okay, so who doesn't want that, right? Isn't it something comes naturally and builds over time? Well, if you're lucky, it comes naturally. And if you're lucky, it builds over time. But I think the odds are against you. I mean, it's entropy. Stuff gets cracked, stuff gets damaged. And the difference is passively waiting and hoping to see if it all, you know, cross your fingers and hope that it all plays out well versus actively saying, what can I do to make this relationship the best version of this relationship? So, you know, your relationships, your working relationships probably fit on a bell curve. You've got some on one end where you're like, I love working with this person, it's fantastic. They get me, I get them. We, you know, amplify each other's strengths. We kind of navigate the tricky things with grace and ease, brilliant. You've probably got some relationships, hopefully not too many at the other end where you're like, oh my goodness, this person is an energy vampire. They suck my life away. If I write a blog post called The Energy Vampire, I'm totally crediting you. Carry on there, Michael. You have to credit what we do in the shadows, which is a fabulous TV show, which is where I got the idea of Energy Vampire from. But anyway, you know, there are these people who you're like, you just can't crack it. No matter what you do, no matter how good your intentions and perhaps their intentions, it just feels like a kind of sucky relationship. And then most of your relationships are somewhere in the middle. They're decent, they're pretty good. You get along most of the time. But each one of those relationships has a potential. And I reckon whether you're at one end of the bell curve or the other or in the middle, there's a way that you can live more fully up to the potential of that relationship. And it takes actively managing it. It takes you going, how do I be the person who reaches out and says, let's figure out how we work best together for your sake and for my sake and for the mission of our organization's sake. I keep coming back to this word intention. So often, people want me to come to the word mindfulness, but I'm a fidgety skeptic, as Dan Harris calls me. I can see that. I'm watching you on video and I'm like, I'm getting that vibe just hanging out with you. But I'm telling you, what you're proposing here, what you're evangelizing about, is to enter into a relationship with intention. And this is something that I talk a lot about with nonprofit leaders who are constantly racing with everything feeling quite urgent because usually everything is quite urgent. And so intentionality is a little bit, is a scarcer commodity than I think is good for a thriving nonprofit. So I love this notion of being intentional about building the best possible relationship. So you talk about three characteristics of the best possible relationship. Can you tease them out for me briefly? Yeah, yeah. So I think the best possible relationships have three characteristics, just as you say. It's not A plus B plus C. There are three characteristics that exist in tension with each other because all best things, all best systems have three principles that are in tension with each other. So I think a best possible relationship needs to be safe and vital and repairable. So let me unpack each one of those three things for you. Safe is the best place to start. And if you've heard of any one of those three, it's probably about safety within relationships, psychological safety, because Amy Edmondson, the OG on psychological safety has made it really clear what a significant role this plays in team and organizational success. Google with Project Oxygen and Project Aristotle talking about how teams and managers thrive. Psychological safety is a key part of the characteristics that they mention. And safety feels an ability to not be in a place of fear. So being able to say things and not fear the repercussions of it. That's how Amy Edmondson defines it. It could even go a little beyond that. Deloitte recently did a study around something they call coverage. And coverage is this idea of, do you get to show up as yourself or do you have to hide some parts of yourself? And it's a really significant number of people who feel they can't bring their whole selves to work. More so, as soon as you move away from people like me, straight white men, old man, I'm like, I'm more comfortable with bringing my whole self to work, but I've got a whole bunch of structures around me that allow that when you're racialized or gender or whatever it might be. There's all sorts of, as people of color will say, code switching that goes on so you fit in and you don't bring your whole self to work. So safety is about an awareness of that. Yes, yes. And I can say as a very quick aside, as a member of the LGBT community, I know about covering and I know about authenticity and the distinction between, I've seen it and read lots about it, about the difference in job satisfaction and productivity of someone of a marginalized community who is able to be authentic versus people who are not. And I often say that LGBT people kind of model authenticity for others who don't come out about all kinds of things. Right, right, that's exactly right. So let's move on to Vital. Yeah, so Vital, I love that Vital has two meanings. Vital meaning essential, but Vital also meaning enlivening. Sort of makes your heart beat a little faster and you kind of in a good way kind of get sweaty hands and kind of go, this is exciting. So Vital is about a relationship that invites people to be brave, to step to the edge of who they are and what they know, to have adventures, to be courageous, to take some risks. And you can see that safe and Vital actually are in a dance with each other. There's this tension between them. You can have a relationship that is so safe that it is deadening, that there's a kind of like, you can't go to the edges because it's all about safety. You can have a relationship that's so vital, so kind of dangerous, that failure is catastrophic because when it breaks, and it will, there's not that safety to kind of balance it. So in any best possible relationship, we're like, what's the balance between safety and vitality that we need to strike? Interesting, I also think about, as you describe, a vital relationship. It's one that when you are in a meeting with that person that that meeting is fueling rather than depleting. Yeah, exactly. It's like Marcus Buckingham talks about strengths. Strength isn't just what you're good at, it's what enlivens you. It's what gives you vitality and what's giving you energy. Yep, repairable. Yeah, so the third attribute is repairable, which is, it stems from this insight, your best relationships and your worst relationships and the ones in the middle will go off the rails at some stage. And an ability to say, how do we fix this so we get back on track is an extraordinarily powerful role to play in any working relationship. And in my research for this, I read a lot of people who write just about the health of relationships. So people like Esther Perel and Dan Siegel and Terry Reel, all terrific authors, all with not all the same, but kind of different, but kind of aligned points of view. And one of the things that was really clear is how poor we are at repairability. You know, something gets slightly dinged and we kind of go, oh, I'm hurt. I feel a bit broken. I feel like this relationship's deteriorating a little bit. And you just kind of assume that that's the way to go because it's hard to speak up about being hurt. It's hard to be the person who builds a bridge to say, let's see if we can get back on track and get back to health in terms of this relationship. So safe, vital, and repairable are the three attributes that make up a best possible relationship. And yes, they're in a dance with each other, right? If a relationship with a colleague goes off the rails, I need to have some element of safety, but I need to feel some element of safety to be able to say either, wait, hold on, that actually did not work for me. That's right. Or can I please tell you how that made me feel? Not to sound too woo -woo or too therapeutic, like let's just face it, there's a lot of therapeutic techniques in buildings and sustaining and nurturing relationships. And how you do it depends on the conversation you've had with the person you're trying to fix this with. So how you and I might repair a glitch that's happened in our working relationships might happen a different way because we're both fast, we're both slightly skeptical, we're both slightly jittery, as you said earlier on. I'm like, me too. We probably do it in a different way because I don't need so much of the blanket of a therapy language to repair stuff. But we figure that out between us. But with somebody, for instance, on my team, I'm thinking of somebody in particular who has much more of that kind of, I need that kind of language and pattern around therapeutic exchange, I'd repair with her in a very different way. But that's the nature of this. There's not a generic way about you showing up. It is a co -created plan to say, how do we build the best possible relationship together? So you talk about building and designing this best possible relationship through something you call the keystone conversation. And I think by virtue of the title of it, I think I know it's a big conversation and an important conversation, that's keystone. Can it happen at any point in your trajectory of a relationship? Or is it best to happen as someone first comes in the door? Yeah, it's a little bit like that saying, the best time to plant an acorn was 20 years ago, but the second best time to plant an acorn is today. Which is like, you can pull back and say, let's have a conversation about how we're working together anywhere through the arc of a relationship. Now, Joan, I'm gonna say this, just because it's on people's minds as they listen to us talk, at least one person is thinking, isn't this going to be awkward? And I just want to say, yes, it is going to be an awkward conversation. Certainly the first time for you and the first time for that other person, it's like, this doesn't happen very often. And it's a bit unusual to step out of the urgency of everyday work, because there's plenty to do and there's plenty to worry about, and there are plenty of fires to put out, and there are plenty of things to be focused on. To step back and go, let's take a beat and talk about you and me and how we're working together. So I love that, I love that. I will also say, and we'll come back to it in a little bit, we actually put your book to the test yesterday with a brand new employee. I love this. And as part of onboarding, and I talked to the manager and Chris, you indicated no awkwardness at all, but an actual wow, like a receptivity to it where both people benefited from the conversation. So depending on when you, it might, if you get further along, it might be, what are we doing? Like, what are we doing this for? But as part of onboarding, it seems to actually be lovely and organic and welcoming. And give the structure to that. But I'm also going to say, Joan, I that love that's onboarding and a manager to a new team member is the most obvious moment when you would do this very conversation. I'm meeting a new vendor this afternoon. Like, they're going to work with me to kind of help produce SEO stuff and help support the launch of the book. I don't understand it at all. SEO stuff, I like that, yeah. But honestly, I've tried to work with agencies like this before. And for the most part, these have not been great relationships. I haven't understood what's going on. They haven't understood me. And it's kind of deteriorated. I'll be using these same questions or variations on them in the setup with this company to say, when you've worked with clients and they've been really good for you, what happened? What did they do? What did you do? When you've worked with clients and they've kind of sucked a bit, what happened? What did they do? What did you do? And I'm going to answer that as well. When I've worked with an agency and it's been great, what happened? What did they do? What did I do? When it didn't work, what did they do? What did I do? It's anytime you've got a relationship that goes beyond it being a transaction, it might be worth investing in the robustness of that relationship. I totally love that. And in fact, it's funny when I always interview potential coaching clients because I coach CEOs of nonprofits. And I know that I have found someone I want to coach when they ask me, who's your ideal coaching client? How do you know that you've had an impact? It's like, first of all, it actually is a very self -reflecting kind of question. It helps me to focus on what I want out of my working relationships with my coaching clients and it gives them insight into me. And so these are the kinds of questions that are so incredibly helpful. So I want to talk about the Keystone conversation and the elements of it. For those people who may be joining or running on the elliptical or something, I just want to say - We salute you. Joan and I are both in excellent shape, so we don't need to run on the elliptical. And so we are sitting on our asses actually. We embody something so healthy, but for everybody who's exercising as you listen to us, carry on, you're doing great. Carry on, indeed. You have our full support.

We are chatting about working relationships. We're just talking about relationships. And we're talking to Michael Bungay Stanier and he is best known for a book called The Coaching Habit, which I love. It's a best -selling coaching book of the century, already recognized as a classic. And his new book, which is coming out on June 27th, is called How to Work with Almost Anyone. And that's what we're talking about. Let's get to it. The Keystone Conversation. And maybe you can, because if you go through all five of them, then people won't actually need to read the book. So... Or buy the book. Which I'm okay with. Like, you know, if they're like, I got all I need from this conversation and I can build better relationships, the mission of this book is 10 million better working relationships. And if I can get that through a conversation with you and a million people, improve working relationships because of the Joan Gary influence, then boom, I'm winning. Doesn't matter about book sales so much. But if you want to buy the book, that's fine as well. That's right. We want you to buy the book. But I want you to give people a flavor of some of the kinds of questions that serve as a foundation of the Keystone Conversation. Sure. So I think there are five questions. And I've actually kind of hinted at what two of them are already. So let me just name those and kind of formally tell you what those are. These are questions number three and question four. There's the good date question, which is what can you learn from successful past relationships? Because the key thing you need to know is your past relationships will show you patterns of your future relationships. I know every relationship is different and every person you're working with is different, but the way you show up and the way they show up, there are just recurring patterns that will keep showing up. So you can look back at the best and go, that, what happened there? What did they do? What did they do that contributed to this? Because we've got a natural bias to taking too much credit for the good relationships. It's like, no, it's all me. It's like, it's not all you. What did they do? What can you learn from that? Because telling that to the person you're in conversation with right now, that's going to be so helpful for them. And also explain what you did. So you both get to exchange what best working relationship is. So powerful. But then the bad date question is kind of the flip of that, the dark side of that, which is what can you learn from frustrating past relationships? Because you've had frustrating past relationships, you've contributed to the frustration of that past relationship. It wasn't just that the other person sucked and they were psychopathic and they were terrible and they were bad human beings, although all of those might also be true. But you played a role in that. A relationship is a dynamic between two people. So what was your role? What was your contribution? How do you learn about yourself and how you show up in bad possible relationships, bad working relationships? And just those two questions alone give so much data about what we should strive for and what we should avoid in terms of how we work well together. The third question I wanted to share, number two on the list, was actually the one that your colleague used in terms of setting up that onboarding conversation. Because before you hit record, you told me that story and I loved it. I might tell it again. But no goosebumps up and down my arm. Yeah, it was like amazing. And it was, what are your practices and preferences? So I call this the steady question. We all have patterns, ways of working, ways of using technology, ways of showing up. They the are questions that are often put on what's sometimes called a read me document. They're kind of big on, I think, Silicon Valley and maybe elsewhere as well, which is like, here are a whole bunch of things you need to know about me. And then the old pattern is I've written out this document, I'm going to send it out and everybody should read it and then they'll just understand how to work. They'll just know me. Yeah, they'll just know me. I'm like, you know, nobody's going to read the document or at least read it well. Nobody's going to remember it. That's not how you form a relationship by sending out a manifesto of how to work with me. That's ridiculous. And the content is so useful when you're sharing about your colleague onboarding your new employee. They're like, we started with these conversations, starting with the simplest question, which is what's your name? What's not your name? Yes, I have to actually, yeah. So I do want to talk about this for just a second because I think it was so instructive to me. So I gave Christy a copy of the book last week. I got a, because I have a special friend, I was able to get one ahead of time. I know some people who know some people. And what Christy said, and we have a new staff person and we are a fully remote organization. That's an important thing to know. There are people that work for me that I have never met in person. So we have to work with greater intention to actually know each other. And I believe we do a pretty good job of that. But anyway, so what Christy said was that the questions in this Read Me exercise did seem so simple, but then it just got, it went to all kinds of places. So the first question, what's my name? What's your name? What's not your name? Christy said, it sparked discussion around our backgrounds and our culture and how we grew up. And she went on and what she said is that the introspection required to answer the question helps you get to know yourself as well as the other person. She referred to the good at versus fulfilled exercise. And it completely changes the tone of the manager direct report conversation by sharing answers back and forth. What a great testimony. Thank you, Christy. Yeah, you know. And thank you to Crystal, our brand new employee for saying, hey, let's do this.

"Alex, you have a great piece out and I want to plug your sub stack unreported truth. Everyone should go to his sub stack and support it about birth rates, having kids. What did you learn in the series of this doing this research? So, I mean, this is something as I write in the sub stack that I'm going to come back to because, you know, it's a it's a it's a vital issue. And I mean, you can argue it's the most important issue, right. You know, Elon Musk may want to take us to Mars. But right now, if you look at birth rate trends and it's not just in the U .S. or Europe, it's sort of in every rich country. They're they're low and dropping low, meaning below the replacement rate. So every woman has to has to, on average, have slightly more than two kids or or the population will start to fall. And actually, I remember in January talking to Elon about this and he said, you know, the demographers make the math really complicated, but it's actually quite simple. Look at the number of children who are born and multiply that times eighty five. And, you know, that will give you, if nothing changes, the number of people a country will have in in eighty five years. Right. At the at the end of the average life of a child born today. So a country like Taiwan, Taiwan has about twenty three million people in it. And this year it's going to have about one hundred and thirty thousand children born. So one hundred thirty thousand times eighty five is about 10 million. So what that tells you is if nothing else changes, and the children of Taiwan who are being born today actually have the replacement number of kids in eighty five years from now, Taiwan's population will be less than half of what it is today. And I mean, that's that's really unbelievable. Right. And actually, you know, in South Korea, it's worse in Japan. It's nearly as bad in southern Europe. It's terrible. Northern Europe is a little bit better in terms of the rates, but they're going down there. The U .S. is a little bit better, but we're below replacement. But this is it's not just again, it's not just sort of, quote unquote, white, wealthy countries. It's South America is like these countries that you wouldn't even expect. Like Saudi Arabia, for example, is barely above replacement level. All over the world, people are choosing not to have children. And, you know, you think about think about Japan and Sweden and Australia and Canada and Germany. These are countries that don't necessarily have that much in common, aside from the fact that they're, you know, they're they're they're wealthy. Their cultures are very different. Their attitudes towards women in the workforce are very different. They're, you know, they're their religions are different. Their languages are different. Their ethnicities are different. I mean, one of the things they all have in common, actually, is that they're they're having this stunning trend towards very few kids. So it's it's something that actually crosses cultures. And if you think about, you know, what is the like what is the ultimate biological goal of any organism? It should be to produce, you know, reproduce to get your genes to the next generation. Somehow, something is happening worldwide that is bigger than culture and bigger than what should be our most basic drive to reproduce.
A highlight from How Bitcoin Fights Tyranny with Erik Cason
"If I'm not wrong about Bitcoin, then I believe that this is the most radical apparatus that has ever put its hands in humanity, and that is the only thing that can save us from the potential annihilation of total war that we are eking towards closer and closer every day. Hello there. How are you all doing? Hope you're doing well. A few things to update you on. Firstly, travels over the next month. We'll be heading out to Fort Worth, I think it's next week, two weeks, I can't remember, for the North American Blockchain Summit before we head out to Ghana to attend the Africa Bitcoin Conference in December and to make another film. It's going to be very busy. We've also announced our conference in Bedford in April next year. Please do go and check that out, cheatco .co .uk. Anyway, welcome to the What Bitcoin Did podcast, which is brought to you by the legends at RS Energy, the largest NASDAQ listed Bitcoin miner using 100 % renewable energy. I'm your host, Peter McCormack, and today we have Eric Cason making his debut on What Bitcoin Did. Now, Eric has been around in Bitcoin for a long time and recently dropped his book, Crypto Sovereignty, in which he expands upon a lot of his writings over the last few years. Now, I absolutely love this show, but not as much as our boy Danny. We've made a few more philosophical shows over the past couple of years, and they are among some of my favorites. I love getting into the wild stuff, especially with someone like Eric. Now, he claims he isn't a philosopher, but have a listen. I think you'll disagree. And all I know is Danny absolutely loved this. It was his favorite show, I think, this year. So I hope you enjoy this one. If you've got any questions about this or anything else, please do get in touch. It's hello at whatpikwondid .com. Danny is like all week, he's like, all right, I cannot wait for the Eric Cason to come on. It's going to be completely fucking nuts, but you're going to love him. That's a pretty good - That pretty much sums it up. Yeah, it's a pretty good synopsis of who I am. Well, look, welcome. Good to finally have you on the show. It's been a long time coming. Do you know what's funny in the last one? So we do notes for the shows, and sometimes I don't even refer to them, but sometimes I do. But I'd opened Eric's notes, and I was looking. So I had Mark Masson, and I was like, so you just dropped a book? I was like, has he just dropped a book? Did you have - No, I did switch it around, but I did have the wrong notes. Anyway, Eric, how are you? I'm good. Strung out from the concert, but you know, or from the conference. Well, in the conference, I went to a concert last night too. Who'd you go and see? Tinlicker. They're part of the Anjunadeep label. They're like a big, they're pretty big in the UK, actually. What kind of music is it? Deep House. Yeah, that's not my thing. Yeah. Yeah, I listen to Slayer and Megadeth and shit like that. Congratulations on the book. I haven't read it. Thank you. It's been a long time coming. I've read some of it, but. Danny usually gets them read in time, but yeah, congratulations. Tell me about the book first, and then we'll get going. Well, the book, it didn't start as a book. It just started as a series of essays that I was just kind of writing, exploring philosophical and sociological content of Bitcoin. And sort of as I got deeper and deeper, I was like, whoa, there's like all these threads sort of connecting. So the book I can really say is more of like a constellation of a greater incomplete work that I'm sort of working on now, that's trying to essentially do an entire philosophical approach towards, I guess what we call it, called like the sociology of cryptography or something like that. We did consider doing mushrooms for this episode. Well, I mean, it would be really nice, but then I got to get on my flight kind of all weird and stuff. I'm just not sure how that would go with TSA. I've had some close calls like that before. I don't really do mushrooms as well, so I'd be completely lost. I don't do acid on planes anymore. Oh, anymore. Yeah, there was an incident once. So I decided I was like, it's time to throttle back on that. Really great way to pass eight hours on a plane. Yeah, please tell me. There's not much to tell you. Cause everybody's always like, you're going to take it, you're just going to flip out on the plane, right? No, like you sit down and you're like, I'm going 600 miles through the air, 330 ,000 feet in the air. Like this is amazing. And if the plane just burst into flames, I'm going to meet God now. It doesn't matter, I can't do anything. So I'm just going to look outside and see all of the amazing mountains and the clouds and how incredible and extraordinary it all is. Did you see that guy get dragged off a plane recently? It was going to Ibiza and had to do an emergency landing, I think in Marseille and they dragged him off the plane cause he was off his nut. No, I didn't see that. Absolutely off his nut. Probably like a weekly occurrence from there. Yeah, I was thinking, what are you doing, doing drugs on a plane? Yeah, yeah. So, you know, I decided that I was getting it a little too close. So we're not doing that anymore just for me and everyone else's safety. Just the gin and tonic will do. Exactly. So what's your philosophy background? I don't have one. You don't have it, even better, okay. But you are a philosopher. No, no, I'm not a philosopher at all. I eschew when anyone tries to call me a philosopher. Maybe I could pass for a thinker. I always say I'm a strategist at best, so. How do you get class as a philosopher? Isn't that a choice? A class? Well, no, essentially like this was all compelled by, when I got into Bitcoin, I had this moment that I was like, how is it possible that this piece of technology can keep its oath to itself in a way that like no man, no institution, no government, no organization seems to be capable of? And it was like a splinter in my mind. And I was like, all right, really smart people have thought about this before me. So like, let's do some Googling about the oath and the philosophy. And I came across this philosopher, Giorgio Ambogon, and I got a book of his called The Sacrament of Oath, The Archaeology of Language. And it's really, really good. It's like the fourth book in like a nine book series called Homo Secur. And now I've read the whole series. And essentially in it, like he's doing a whole archeology of like, what is the oath? How did it function? How did it come about? And he kind of like goes all the way back to pre -Roman times. And he was like, the oath really is like this object of language that fuses magic, religion, and words into a singular that actually has nothing to do with the content that's spoken, but it has to do with the actualization of what's been promised. And so this then marries up with an individual called Homo Secur, who's like the forsaken man throughout human history, who all legal systems have always given themselves a right and a decree to destroy these people, but it's not murder. And most interestingly is that these people can't be used in sacrifices ritualized either, because it's about putting them outside the purview and the protection of the gods. So like they can't have anything to do with religion. And what's pretty interesting is that like, essentially there have been these like non peoples throughout human history that could always be destroyed by the state because of the way that like they're the other bad people. And they pose a threat to the entire system. So like they must be destroyed. And so following the lineage of that person, I kind of like connected that up to modernity and seeing how like now we live in a constant state of emergency where like any of us can be labeled as a terrorist or any enemy combatant. And not only like, do we just not, not only are we in prison, but like access to the law itself is fundamentally impossible. Like we can't even get habeas corpus. So yeah, it's been a pretty interesting journey. And then there's like 10 other philosophers that like on the concourse of it, he like mentioned that and I have to like go on the journey to read them. And I'm also dealing with like a lot of, like a lot of these thinkers you can't approach in academia because they're like solely with backgrounds either in like communism or like radical fascism or other things. So like the moment that you start reading them, people are like, you got to get out of academia. Like you're not welcome here. Why? Specifically so like Heidegger for example, Heidegger is really solely because not only did he belong to the Nazi party, but it seems like a lot of his philosophy actually deals with trying to like actualize a political party that explicitly can identify friend and enemy classes for like the evolution of that political ideal. And so in my opinion, dealing with Heidegger and understanding him very intently so that you can make a criticism of him is essential. Like if you actually want to make your way through the course of phenomenological philosophy and like actually like make your way past Heidegger. you So are saying there's like a whole class of philosophers or philosophy that is essentially kind of censored? Absolutely. One of the guys that, a more contemporary fellow, his name is Michael Norman. He was from the University of Toronto, but brilliant, brilliant scholar. He was studying Heidegger like pretty intensely and he essentially got canceled from the University of Toronto and was intimidated and sort of forced out. It is Canada, it's not surprising. We're ragging on Canada a lot recently. Have you registered yourself yet? We don't have to yet. Okay. Yeah, because we don't make $10 million in revenue, but if there's a bull market, yeah, no, it's the platforms and if you make more than $10 million. I don't know if that's podcast in Canada or anyone. What do you mean as in based in Canada? Like, do you have to be based in Canada or if we want to disseminate our content in Canada? Don't know, probably based in Canada, I would guess. I would have thought the latter actually, because otherwise how can we control you? Well, we don't make $10 million yet, so. Yeah, we're close. After this pod though. Nine and a half million. Okay, so what, the background is they're seen as dangerous words? Yeah, I mean like another floss for I deal a lot with is Karl Schmidt. And so like Schmidt was like a, he was a member of the Nazi party and specifically what I think is the most damning of Schmidt is he actually wrote the legal defense for Hitler during the night of the long knives that essentially justified why that state of emergency was used and that really sort of solidified from a legal perspective that like Hitler's decree was the law itself. And interestingly enough, like Schmidt was actually arrested and in prison for like three years to go and trial at Nuremberg, but they just eventually felt like he didn't have enough evidence. And the biggest irony is that Schmidt actually wrote in, I think it was in 1931 on the concept of the political. And this specifically was talking about like the crisis that the Weimar Republic was facing and that essentially if Chancellor von Hindenburg didn't use the clause of article 38 in the constitution to declare a state of emergency and banned both the Nazis and the communists, that the Weimar Republic would be in crisis. So ironically enough, this didn't see its way into the hands of the chancellor. And so when he was ousted and Hitler came to power, it turned out Hitler was actually kind of a fan of Schmidt's work and Hitler read it and he was like, ah, that's like clause 38 thing. Like this is what we use to destroy the Weimar Republic. Okay, so what do we lose by limiting the kind of scope of books that are studied? I mean, everything, like that's sort of the contextual space that we can have to actually criticize these works. So like look like Mein Kampf should be read not because it's brilliant, but because it's absolutely stupid. Okay. Like it's just an idiotic framework. And like, as soon as you read it, you go, oh, like this Nazism thing is actually like really stupid. Like there's not really much substance to it. I mean, even in the Nuremberg trials, when they asked Schmidt about Hitler, he like sighed and was dismissive. He was like, I can't even discuss his ideology because I find it so superfluous. Well, what is the TLDR? Cause I haven't read Mein Kampf. I doubt, have you read it? I know. I doubt I will. The TLDR is essentially that like Aryan individuals have a superior place in the world because they lead German culture and German culture has helped develop the West on a whole. And that that needs to be defended against all the individuals who aren't part of German culture that are invading Germany. And we need to get lunch in Rome in order to expand German culture and people. And that we always need to be aggressive and warring against the other people that are trying to come into us. And so like, we need to expand the Aryan people as much as possible, make as many of them and destroy anybody that tries to threaten that. So it was elitism. Elitism fused with a general nationalism that then wants to try to create a hierarchical order of people. Right, okay. And so how have you picked the rabbit hole for you to go to that eventually gets you to crypto sovereignty? It's pretty interesting. Well, so like after the Occupy Wall Street movement, like I was exposed to all of those things and it was very clear to me that money was substantially broken. And it was also very clear to me that we couldn't use the political system to make that operable. So for me, I just fell into a crushing depression where I was like, there's no conceivable way to solve any of this problem. Like, how do you neutralize this money problem that's so endemic? So like in my crushing depression, I was just like, well, like maybe, maybe that's it. Maybe I just need to like end it. There's like no good. We can never make anything happen. So I had like, somebody had essentially like whispered to me at Occupy about Bitcoin and how this was like the answer. What year was Occupy? Was that 2011? 2011. Okay. Yeah, so this was like early 2012 that like all this stuff was percolating. And so I like looked up some stuff about Bitcoin and I was like, oh, like this was really interesting and kind of let it percolate a little. And then I came across an article about people that were essentially like doing money laundering in between China and Singapore, like using Bitcoin. And I had wrote my senior thesis at university on the East Asian financial crisis and capital controls. So I was like really intrigued. I was like, capital controls are really powerful. And if you can get around the Chinese communist government capital controls, like pretty that's essential. So like now the Bitcoin thing had really sparked up for me and I was getting into it, reading a lot more about it. But there was all of these like lingering questions about like, how is this even working? Like I get it technologically, but like why, why can't I make a money when like no government can adequately make a money? Like, and then I did the research on the cypherpunk stuff and I was like, oh, okay, this is making sense. And then from Occupy, I'd really gone from being like a far left socialist or communist to like a full on anarchist. And that's really kind of the change that I went under Occupy. And so for me, anarchism was like a sufficient inoculation to be able to like explore both radical communist and radical fascist theory and be able to kind of pick and choose what works for me, what doesn't work for me. And I think that that piece of being like inoculated vis -a -vis anarchism, because to me it was like, I admit that the state is an apparatus of violence and we can't use it at all. And like both fascism and communism see those as key components, but like what else can we maybe learn from these theories? Like, is there anything of value here? And in my opinion, there's a lot of valuable stuff. It's just understanding where all of the pitfalls are and then how it essentially becomes a violent apparatus of destruction vis -a -vis statism and the authority that it tries to decree to people. Okay, so that shift from radical socialism to anarchism, was that like a, was that an actual shift or was that an evolution of your ideas, your worldview, where you actually realize what it is you, the issues you have in the world or complications the you see or the problems you see with the state, actually you thought socialism was a solution, but it really is anarchism, potentially. Yes, and like the actual like point of change was when I was in Philadelphia, like the Occupy National Gathering, and we had assembled at the Peaceful Assembly monument that's on the National Monument Mall, and the police told us to like get lost. And we're like, no, you don't understand. This is like the freedom to assemble memorial. They're like, we're telling you. And I was like, but you don't, then they got the tranche on that and started beating the shit out of me, right? Right on top of the memorial too. And I remember like, as he's like hitting me, like I have this thought, I was like, oh, like the state is not my friend. Like these people aren't gonna help us ever. And that was kind of like my big radical shift in understanding that like the state wasn't actually this thing that was gonna help us out. So what brought you to radical socialism then? What is it about you? So I grew up in the Western United States in California. So I grew up in woo woo, liberal California with everything feels really good. And like one of the really important things about socialism I wanna honor is like, it feels really good. Like this was like a really great idea that we want everybody to understand and get on board with. We should like share stuff that's like important. And there's like a common in community. I think the problem is that all of those feel good feelings, those are ots as opposed to like what is. And like what is is as good as we have those feelings, like there are very real limits to what we can provide. Like as much as we do centrally plan something and saying, we're gonna provide this for everybody, there is actual corruptions and limits to it. So I think for me, that experience of getting beaten was understanding that as much as this shouldn't be happening, it is. And why is it happening? And why do things like this happen? And for me, it was realizing that like, oh, this like apparatus of violence where people decide that like, hey, if you don't do the thing I tell you, I'm gonna hurt you, which seems like a really basic thing. But I really realized like kind of starkly, I was like, oh, like, this is the thing that like runs the entire world is like this entire module of punishment and discipline and trying to create an orderly world, which it does really, really well, but there's all these tertiary issues that come out from it that aren't really well connected to it. Such as? Well, such as if we want to look at the largest polluters in the world, like it's the US military. And so like, there's this endemic problem of that. Violence is a very real and endemic problem, but violence on a state -based level is a whole nother game. And that's one that we all comply to and act like it's a totally normalized thing that if somebody just doesn't comply, that using violence to get their compliance is good. Well, it's slightly different where we're from because we don't have guns. So they might hit you with a truncheon, but it's very rare that a police officer shoots someone. It's a big deal when that happens. Yeah, it's a huge deal. It usually leads to some form of protest. We had riots in South London a few years back on the basis of it, there's a massive investigation. There's actually a situation at the moment recently where a marksman shot somebody and killed them. And he's now being tried for murder. And a number of the, cause we don't have many cops with guns, we have some, we have like armed response or at the airports, a number of come in and handed in their guns because they don't want to run the risk of having to use their gun in the line of work and risk being tried for murder. Well, are you held accountable, just like a normal citizen who chose to shoot somebody? It depends on the situation, but every shooting will have an investigation. But this one, I don't know the details of it, but I just know he's now going to be tried for murder. And that's particularly rare. I couldn't even tell you the last time that's happened. I would say most of the time they're not treated the same way. Okay. Cause like here in the United States, like police officers get certain immunities for when they use their gun, particularly if like they say like, I felt like my life was in danger. And I think like there's only been like 21 officers like convicted throughout the history of the United States, like being put on trial for murder, like using their gun, like while in action. And so like, that's like a massive imbalance. And so to me, again, like the problem, the state is essentially saying, hey, there are people out there that can use their firearms. They're going to get special protection under the law. And they're also going to have a very cozy relationship with the prosecutors when they do come to do that. And to me, like this is a pretty gross abortion of justice. And it also communicates very clearly to police officers like, hey, if you shoot somebody in the line of duty, probably aren't going to be held responsible. So it's the monopoly and violence that, I listened to a podcast, I can't remember who it was. It might've been Sam Harris, I know he won't be popular. And I'm sure he was arguing that the monopoly of violence was the best thing we gave the government because it leads to net less violence. That's, I'm just telling you, that's what I read. But when I heard that, and I thought in terms of the United States, I thought actually that might be less true. I think it's potentially more true in the UK. It's interesting that there's that dynamic that sort of exudes itself. Because we don't have guns. Yeah, and I think that that's a pretty interesting example because yeah, the monopoly on violence, we could say in theory is working out pretty well there. And when we look at the United States, we'd say, ah, not having a monopoly on violence here doesn't seem to be working out so well. But I'm purely guessing. I could be entirely wrong. But one of the main problems is that like, all right, that works for a specific limited duration, but now we end up getting ourselves into Germany in 1930. We disarm the whole population. Like, hey, this is really great. There aren't any more firearm deaths. Now we have a population that we don't really like, that we start bullying a whole bunch. Turns out we really don't like them and we want to steal all their stuff. Turns out we actually hate them entirely and we don't even want them to be German citizens and we want to extinguish them. And so now we're talking about the wholesale murder of 2 million people.
A highlight from Episode 127 - Glo & The Life You Can Save - How blockchain can help alleviate extreme poverty
"When it comes to getting the most bang for your buck, there are really incredible opportunities in the world of extreme poverty, because there are interventions that we know will save or transform lives, and we just don't have enough money going to those interventions. And these can be extremely cheap, and things like a bed net that can protect somebody from a potentially fatal case of malaria, or a cataract surgery that could literally restore somebody's sight. And it could also be something like GiveDirectly's UBI program, which gives people the freedom to solve their own problems. So I hope that the crypto community keeps all this in mind. They have the opportunity to make an enormous difference in people's lives. If you're starting an NFT community that has a charitable component, if you pick the right charity, you could literally be saving somebody's life for not a lot of money. The obstacle is really just money. Welcome to the Crypto Altruism podcast, the podcast dedicated to elevating the stories of those using Web3 for good. I'm your host Drew Simon from CryptoAltruism .org. Now before we get started, a quick disclaimer. While we may discuss specific Web3 projects or cryptocurrencies on this podcast, please do not take any of this as investment advice, and please make sure to do your own research on investment opportunities or any opportunity, including its legality. And now, let's get on to the show. Welcome, and thanks so much for joining. An estimated 700 million people worldwide live in extreme poverty. While excellent progress has been made over the past few decades, despite setbacks during the COVID -19 pandemic, there is still a long way to go to ensure that no one has to be born into a life of extreme poverty. Crypto has long been touted as a groundbreaking tool for financial inclusion, but how can this technology be used to help end extreme poverty once and for all? To dive into this, I'm excited to welcome John Behar from The Life You Can Save, a nonprofit on a mission to make smart giving simpler and Seth Ariel Green from GlowDollar, a stablecoin with a mission to end extreme poverty. We discuss how crypto can help fight extreme poverty, how blockchain can fuel smarter giving, some of the barriers preventing crypto from reaching its full potential, and much more. So without further ado, please join me in welcoming John and Seth to the Crypto Altruism podcast. Okay, John, Seth, thank you so much for being here today on the Crypto Altruism podcast. Great to be here. Thanks for having us. Yeah, so excited to learn about The Life You Can Save. I've been following your organization for quite a while, actually. I work in the nonprofit sector, so I'm quite familiar with the work that you do. Really excited to have you here. Really excited to have you as well, Seth, from Glow. We've had the pleasure of having Glow on the podcast previously a few months ago, but now I'm excited to really kind of narrow in on a more specific topic of how crypto stablecoins can help address extreme poverty. And so I'm really excited to dive into that and to have a really fascinating conversation on that. Before we get there, I'd love to hear from both of you of how you got into the world of Web3, or what got you excited about blockchain and Web3 maybe to start. So do you want to jump in first, John, and then we can go to you, Seth? Sure. My personal aha moment kind of came early in the COVID crisis when the Fed backstopped the corporate bond market. And when that happened and happened so quickly and with so little debate, I kind of realized that money printing was really going to go to the next level. And I owed it to myself to do my homework on Bitcoin, especially on the digital gold narrative. So pretty soon I found myself just going down the crypto rabbit hole. And for the life you can save as an organization, we got more involved in crypto later that year. And in late 2020, we were approached by the Fugue Foundation, which is an organization that promotes Web3 technology and supports highly effective charities. So Fugue offered us a grant in crypto if we were going to take some steps to ramp up our Web3 proficiency. And specifically, they asked us to run an Ethereum validator test net. And that was something that we felt like we had no ability to do internally. But the timing worked out amazingly because right at that time, a volunteer approached us who was very crypto savvy and was able to do that. So we were very lucky about how that all kind of lined up. And that experience got us got the ball rolling for us in terms of ramping up processes around being able to accept crypto and do things like that. Very cool. Awesome. Well, thank you so much for sharing, John. It's great to hear the story of how you got here and excited to learn about the life you can save as well shortly. But first, let's go to you, Seth, if you want to share your aha moment that first got you excited about blockchain and Web3. Sure. So for me, it was in 2021. I hiked the Appalachian Trail, which for non -Americans is from Georgia to Maine. And towards the second half of it, I started getting bored of walking in the woods all day. So I started listening to podcasts. And I think for me, it was actually Vitalik being interviewed by Tyler Cowen when I realized like, oh, this guy's smart. Like, he's thinking hard about stuff that like is interesting to me, governance. And he'd like read some. He showed evidence of very reading broadly. I felt like, oh, maybe it's not all just a pyramid scheme, which was my private belief. Started reading about it, started liking what I was reading. And then in, I think it was March of 2022, I saw an advertisement for this company called Global Income Coin, which is what my company used to be called, that was looking for a writer. And they had posted their white paper as a Google doc. And so at this point, the only thing I know about crypto is I've read a couple articles, I've listened to a couple of podcasts, but I know how to edit Google documents. So I went into the Google document and I read it all the way through and I edited the heck out of it. And they said, oh, great, that's great. You should do this for us full time. And 18 months later, here we are. Love that. That's amazing. It's funny how you get into this world, right? I often hear stories like that of like, you know, it started off with just kind of like, you know, connection here, me working on some little project here and then, hey, you know, five months later, I'm full time or something in this in this world. So that's amazing. Well, thank you both for sharing a pleasure to have you here. Let's start with maybe doing a bit of introductions for your organizations now that we've kind of learned a little bit about you and where you came from. So maybe we can start with you, John. You mind giving listeners a quick introduction to The Life You Can Save? Sure. The Life You Can Save is a nonprofit that has a mission to improve the lives of the 700 million people who live below the international poverty line of $2 .15 a day. So the way we do that is by identifying and raising funds for outstanding nonprofits that serve that community and offer donors really outstanding bang for the buck. So these organizations work in a variety of ways. Some of them are performing life saving or life transforming health interventions. Others are expanding economic inclusion or access to education. And others fight climate change, which is an issue that disproportionately affects people who live in extreme poverty. So you can kind of think of us as applying the crypto ethos of don't trust, verify to the charity world. There are about 1 .5 million charities in the U .S. alone, and every one of them has a narrative about why you should support them. And they're completely incentivized to make that narrative look as positive as possible. So The Life You Can Save helps donors cut through that noise and find organizations that run evidence backed programs and offer exceptional cost effectiveness. So we make it so that donors don't have to simply trust the marketing stories that charities are telling them. We operate as an independent third party that can do the research to actually verify that the organizations are having the impact that they claim to and are really making a tangible social impact. So there are a lot of people who are generous and want to make a difference with their giving. And we try to make it easier for them to actually translate those good intentions into real impact. Yeah, and I love that. And that's such an important mission. And as someone who's worked in the nonprofit sector for many years, I can see a lot of those pain points that you're looking to address there with the work they're doing. And also thinking, and looking back on my aha moment, a lot of those pain points were some of the reasons I got excited about blockchain in the future as well, or blockchain as well, because I think in the future, as we really build up this technology, it can be a game changer in helping address some of those issues, you know, around transparency around fundraising, around measuring and monitoring impact in the nonprofit sector. And we'll talk about that a bit later on as well. But just have to chime in on that because I'm like, Yeah, you know, there's I see some good alignment there with your mission and how this technology can can improve that. But let's go to you now, Seth, and we'll come back to that a bit later on if you want to, you know, we've had glow on the on the podcast in the past, had Jasper and and Jasper and Garm, I think, on the podcast a glow, big fan of the work you're doing. We're excited to be also be joining as a consortium member, hopefully soon, once we get all of our policies and everything in place. But before we go any further, maybe you can give for those that didn't listen to that podcast that aren't as familiar with glow, you might just give it a quick little introduction, your mission. So happy to do that. So company I work for is called glow foundation, that's GLO. And our works to give basic income to people in extreme poverty. And so taking a step back, how stable coins work in general, or how the legitimate fiat backed ones work is you give the stable coin issuer a dollar and they give you a stable coin, then that dollar sits in a bank account somewhere and it gets split up into a cash portion, just straight dollars or whatever the local currency is that that facilitates liquidity. Like if you need to actually be trading, you can just sell back $50 ,000 or buy back, you need to have some portion in cash. And the other, let's say 80%, the bulk of that of all the dollars in the reserve go towards cash equivalents, which are very safe short term investments like three month Treasury bills or money market funds that themselves invest in three month Treasury bills, blah, blah, blah. And those give a yield. Right now that yield is sitting at like 5 .15%. I think maybe it's a little higher even. And the typical fiat backed stable coin, like Circle, for instance, whose product is USDC covers operating expenses and generates profits based on the yield from the reserves. We take that model, and we essentially apply what we're calling the embedded philanthropy idea to it. So when we get money from the reserves and the stable coin, we give it away to GiveDirectly. GiveDirectly is an outstanding charity. I'm sure John can talk more about this. They give the money that they get as no strings attached cash transfers to people in extreme poverty. So our basic theory of change is GiveDirectly is every single person in extreme poverty would appreciate having a basic income. The bottleneck is just funds. So we want to turn the operation of a stable coin into a revenue generating machine for this outstanding charity. And to close the circle on how we work, we fund operations through donations. Very cool. And you mentioned GiveDirectly there and what their mission was. I saw that they were one of the recommended charities that you had on the Life You Can Save website, GiveDirectly, because of the effective work that they're doing. So yeah, really, really awesome. So thanks for giving that quick introduction. I think it's really helpful the way you broke it down to how the traditional stable coin markets work, investing for those that are backed by cash or cash equivalents or those sorts of things, how they do that, the yield they earn, where that typically goes, in your case, making sure that that yield then is diverted to those that need at most those in extreme poverty. And so I love how Glow is really putting a really positive spin on stable coins, because let's face it, stable coins have gotten a lot of heat lately in the media and from a regulatory point of view. But they can also be a very valuable tool for financial inclusion and fighting extreme poverty. I personally see many examples of that. So maybe I'll open it up to either one of you. What does the world need to know about stable coins that they don't currently know, based on the most common narratives out there? I would say the core thing is that not all stable coins are created equal. This most strongly occurred to me in about May of last year, when a so -called stable coin, Terra, death spiraled. But Terra never made any sense. Like the economics of it, it was obviously a Ponzi great marketing benefit of calling themselves a stable coin. But that stability was a total illusion. I do not think that Glow dollars should be lumped in the same category. I think that basically you have, on the one hand, organizations that have taken concrete steps towards showing that their reserves are being held only in cash and cash equivalents, that they are not co -mingling customer funds, that they are not lending their assets out to unknown and undisclosed partners. And I think when you put those stable coins into their own bin, those organizations look pretty good. So I basically think that a lot of these not so -called stable coins have pulled a very impressive marketing coup by getting everyone to talk about these things as if they're the same thing. But it just ain't so. I think that that's a sectoral thing as well. And looking at crypto more broadly, I think people view crypto and some of the scams that have been out there are synonymous. And that it's all the same. When you think of crypto, it's all just Ponzi schemes and scams. And it's certainly the same for stable coins, is that everything gets lumped together. And when you have a couple of bad actors that do something, it really brings down the whole ecosystem in a sense. Well, it's more than a couple. That's the problem. If this were isolated... In general, I try to approach these things by... Forget the hype. I work in marketing at a crypto company. My job is hype. Look past that. You see that at its core, FTX, for instance, was an offshore crypto casino. Why would you think that that was a good idea to put your money there? No offense to people who... Whatever. A lot of people fell for it. But just the fundamentals are what really matter. Yeah, for sure. Definitely. And so let's dive in a bit more. So we talked about stable coins. We talked about the missions of your organizations. Where this all comes together is in fighting extreme poverty. So the World Bank estimates that some around 700 million people maybe are currently living in extreme poverty. How can crypto help address this? Well, I think there are two main ways. And the first would be by creating wealth and then using that wealth to fund high impact organizations and interventions that are targeting the global poor. And crypto donors do tend to make larger gifts and start giving at an earlier age than other types of donors. And that has enormous potential. And GiveDirectly, the organization that Glow supports and that The Life You Can Save recommends is an amazing example of that. In 2021, 17 % of GiveDirectly's operating budget came from the crypto community, which is frankly pretty mind boggling. Wow. And the second way that the crypto can help is by building new systems. And that could be a new stable coin that funds UBI. That could be more efficient payment rails that help people send remittances to family members in poor countries without paying exorbitant fees to middlemen. Or it could be new organizational structures like DAOs that allow people in poor countries to get new work opportunities with organizations. borderless And The Life You Can Save's payment processes are actually a good example of how these new systems can benefit people in extreme poverty. You can make a credit card donation to The Life You Can Save, and it would be instantaneous. But the credit card company is going to charge their standard 3 % fee. You could send us a check, and then you wouldn't have the fee. It's going to take several days for the check to arrive, and then we need to manually cash it. So that's not ideal either. But if you donate crypto to The Life You Can Save, it's both fast and it's cheap. So you'll have to pay whatever network fees there might be, but that can be extremely low. But aside from that, there's no processing fees. And that's thanks to our partner, Crypto for Charity, which I definitely recommend. If you're a nonprofit or a donor thinking about crypto donations, I would definitely recommend you check them out. So that means that you can donate crypto to The Life You Can Save or any of our recommended charities for free. And because of this disintermediating technology, more money is going to go and help people in extreme poverty, and less money is going to go to middlemen. Yeah. Yeah. Very well put. Very well put. Yeah. And I think that just like, you know, for me, I just think about getting money from, let's say that I have money right now that I want to donate to someone on the other side of the world, and every just like step and barrier that needs to go through to get there. Right. So I think that you hit the nail on the head, it just speeds things up, makes it more efficient, more cost effective.
A highlight from Diversity Disaster
"Welcome to the Dennis Prager Show. I'm your guest host, Karl Jackson, sitting in for Dennis Prager. The number to call into the program, one eight Prager seven seven six. That number again is one eight Prager seven seven six or one eight two four three seventy seven seventy six. All right, I want to thank first off Dennis Prager and Sue for allowing me to sit behind their microphone and then entrusting me behind their mouth. I've got my back right here at AM 950. The answer Orlando .com right here in Orlando, Florida. Sean McConnell is in my ear. I want to thank Alan Estrin as well for allowing me as well to sit in and contacting me. Who do we have watching the lines there, Mr. McConnell? Tony is on the line. Thank you, Tony. Good to see you. All right, the number to call in one eight Prager seven seven six, one eight Prager seven seven six. I'm going to do things a little differently today. Of course, we'll touch some of the hot topics and some of the leading headlines of today, but I'm going to go I'm going to go somewhere else today and and and we'll bob and weave throughout the throughout the program here. I think I want to start here. I want to make some emphatic comments, and I know a lot of people might not be comfortable with these comments, but by the end of the show, I hope and pray that you will be and you will understand just how important they are, because there's a war that is occurring not just against Israel and Hamas or, dare I say, Israel and Iran, a war, sadly, that the United States government, under the leadership of Joe Biden, has helped to cultivate. And I say that, sadly, but I believe it to be true with all of my heart. But there's a war that's taking place right here in the United States, and I believe that it's already begun. We're going to talk about several issues, and honestly, we'll go throughout the entire three hours. They're not necessarily going to be broken up, but we're going to talk about crime right here in the United States. We're going to talk about the border problem. We're going to talk about the problem that is Islamist, Islamicism or Islamism or Islamic Jihad. We're going to talk about all of these issues because I think they're very, very important. But first, let me say this. Let me start off with this. Many of you in the audience or many of you in the listening audience have been taught to believe that diversity is our strength when it comes to America. That is a damn lie. Diversity is not our strength. Diversity will be our downfall. Now, if you're talking about diversity as far as the brain is concerned, that would be one thing. But unfortunately, when it comes to DEI, that's not what we're experiencing today. DEI, diversity, equity, inclusion, CRT, all of that racist bullcrap, that is taking us down. That is identity politics. What that has caused us to do is to divide on issues that we shouldn't be divided against. Let me say this. Even if you are an anti -Semite, even if you are an anti -Semite, even if you're a bigot and you're a despicable person in that sense, in my opinion, we all should be able to agree that when it comes to, let's say, listen, I'm not going to hold any punches. So parents, for those of you parents that are listening in, I'm going to describe some of the things that we know took place in Israel at the hands of Hamas. And so I just want to brace you. And this might be a recurring theme throughout the show. So if you have little ears around, I want you to brace them. I am a Christian, so I will try to watch my mouth, but I'm going to shoot straight with you. I'm going to shoot straight with you. And I believe that you deserve nothing less than for me to shoot straight with you. But we used to believe at least that when it came to, let's say, rape, killing women and children, beheading people, that should be a line that I think we all can agree that we should not cross, right? I think we, at least in the United States of America, we used to believe that those things were evil, right? I mean, anti -Semitism is evil, but we understand that there's going to be bigots if you don't act on your beliefs when it comes to that. Okay, listen, it's a free country. I can't stand you, but it's a free country. But now we seem to have quote unquote Americans that are Hamas sympathizers, that are terrorist sympathizers, and they don't belong here. They don't belong here, in my opinion. They're anti -American. So I'm here to say diversity is not our strength. That's total BS. It's going to be our downfall. And the left is specifically and intentionally focusing on issues that will divide us. This is dangerous. Let me tell you some of the things that should happen. I'm going to talk about, man, I get so much, it's insane. But I'm going to talk about the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, how stupid that was and how that's coming to bite us in the butt. Another thing that the Democrats embraced because they were losing the vote, that's part of the reason and why they finally embraced or they tried to leave their racism in the past and tried to project it onto Republicans. So we'll talk about that a little bit. I want to talk about the warfare that is immigration. A lot of people are thinking of war in conventional ways, and we should be, right? We should be on our guard. But I'm going to talk to you about the warfare by immigration, the warfare that is our immigration system, the warfare that is our open borders. Also, I'm going to talk to you about popping caps. We're going to talk about the Second Amendment. We're going to talk about the lies that the Vice President Kamala Harris was spewing last week when she was in, whatever, the press conference that she gave with the Australian Prime Minister. I got some numbers for you, and the numbers and the things that she were saying were just a complete and utter lie. That lady, I hate to say it because I don't want to be mean, but the truth of the matter is that lady is dumber than a box of rocks, and she has no business being Vice President of the United States. Now, Joe Biden is almost equally as dumb, but I don't even think he's as dumb as her, despite the fact that, in my opinion, the man has dementia. This is one of these left -wing people and Vice President Kamala Harris that has literally, I believe, been trained up in some of her thinking without really thinking about it, if you will. Let me tell you where we should start when it comes to immigration, and we'll get into this, and we'll get into the war by immigration. We'll get into this nonsense about the Australian buyback program and how it allegedly saved lives and reduced the numbers of gun ownership. All of this is a complete and utter lie. That's all the left do. They lie, they lie, they lie, they lie while they destroy the country. And if you hate America and if you're pro -Palestinian, which means pro -Hamas, I can't stand you behind, and I hope you leave the country. Move to Gaza. I hear there's an excellent fireworks show happening there right now that you could be a part of. All right, so merit -based immigration. I want to talk about that. Merit -based immigration. We need to move back to a merit -based immigration, and this is very important. This is crucial for our survival. Sadly, I don't think any American president has done it effectively in quite some time. We had a moratorium, and then with the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, we destroyed that, and we began to destroy America. Democrats began to destroy America. Here's where we should be. Here's what we should be doing. All right, so currently, as it stands right now, we allow 1 .1, approximately 1 illegal, .1 I'm sorry, legal immigrants into the country annually. All right, we're going to have to change that makeup due to what Joe Biden has done, the open borders, because I'm telling you, guys, there's a war of immigration that is taking place. And while we sit here and we watch for, we wait for the beheadings and we wait for the mass shootings and all of this kind of stuff, I'm telling you, we are already at war. And China is at the helm. A lot of these countries in the Middle East, exception being Israel, are useful idiots for China. They don't realize that yet, but they will someday. They will someday. Russia also, they will someday. They'll realize it that they're useful idiots for China. But currently we allow in, again, approximately 1 .1 legal immigrants into the United States. The makeup of that is going to have to change. We'll talk about that. And I'm sorry, I think there's going to have to be a moratorium on that. At the very least, I believe we're going to have to cut those numbers in half until we can control the immigration process that doesn't seem to exist right now. I mean, these open borders are absolutely scary to me. This is the biggest threat. This is the biggest threat hitting the United States of these things. I've talked about how the left is trying to depopulate America. Perhaps I'll reintroduce you to that to some extent, but our open borders is a war that is being waged on us. And sadly, we have a United States government under the leadership of a Joe Biden that is participating. And it's sad. So that's going to have to be cut down. I want either that number cut in half, or I want a total moratorium for seven to 10 years. We'll be talking about that after the break. I got some other recommendations that need to happen right away when it comes to the border, if we're going to start saving this country. But we need some strong men and women that are willing to do it. Carl Jackson and for Dennis Prager, we'll be back in a few. Gold dealers are a dime a dozen. They're everywhere. What sets these companies apart and whom can you really trust? This is Dennis Prager for AmFed Coin and Bullion, my choice for buying precious metals. When you buy precious metals, it's imperative that you buy from a trustworthy and transparent dealer that protects your best interests. So many companies use gimmicks to take advantage of inexperienced gold and silver buyers. Be cautious of brokers offering free gold and silver or brokers that want to sell you overpriced collectible coins, claiming they appreciate more than gold and silver. What about hidden commissions and huge markups? Nick Grovitch and his team at AmFed always have your back. I trust this man. That's why I mentioned him by name. Nick's been in this industry over 42 years, and he's proud of providing transparency and fair pricing to build trusted relationships. If you're interested in buying or selling, call Nick Grovitch and his team at AmFed Coin and Bullion, 800 -221 -7694. Americanfederal .com, Americanfederal .com. All right, welcome back to The Dennis Prager Show. Such an honor to be sitting behind Dennis's microphone. I mean, I adore the man. He's absolutely brilliant, and we all should look up to him, frankly. Hat tip Breitbart, the Pentagon says the U .S. military launched airstrikes early Friday on two locations in eastern Syria linked to Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps. So the U .S. strikes Iran linked sites in Syria in retaliation for the attacks on U .S. troops earlier or last week. Isn't this amazing? Isn't this amazing? So the U .S. military launched airstrikes early Friday on two locations in eastern Syria linked to Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, the Pentagon said, in retaliation for a slew of drone and missile attacks against U .S. bases and personnel in the region that began early last week. Man, I wonder if they could have afforded those drones had Biden not paid for them. Isn't it amazing how we've come full circle with the disaster that was the Afghanistan withdrawal, with the Taliban now running Afghanistan, $85 billion approximately in military equipment that we left behind that could be reverse engineered by China, were the Taliban to sell it to China, and let's assume that they did. I mean, it's phenomenal. It's amazing. We wouldn't be in the predicament that we are in were it not for Biden and the Democrats that voted for Joe Biden. And yes, I'm going to say that often. I'm going to say that loudly. If you're wondering what's happening around the world, if you're seeing what appears to be, I mean, the beginning steps, Lord willing, I hope that I'm wrong. I hope this does just end up being a move between Israel and Iran and their proxies in Hamas and Hezbollah. But let's not be naive. There's going to be a lot of leaders around the world that are looking at this decrepit dementia patient that are in the White House and they're saying, now is the time to make my move. And we have to wonder if those moves are not only going to reshift political allies and adversaries around the globe. It's insane. We simply don't know what's going to happen. But I can tell you what we need to do to start protecting our own border and to get ready for the fight. By the way, we'll be sharing as well, if I can get to ways that you need to prepare for a terrorist attack, because it's going to happen. And again, I think there's a war that is already being waged. I want to be clear, an unconventional war of sorts, where the ground troops are amassing their soldiers around us. And we have an administration in the White House that is fully complicit. Either they're stupid or they're complicit. Either way, we're very, very important. There's a piece, too, that I'm going to want to share by Ann Coulter. She wrote a fabulous piece last week. But I do want to get back to this immigration issue, because I believe it's important. Girl, are you a racist? Are you a bigot? No. No. I'm an American. I'm an American. Guys, we're not a nation of immigrants. This diversity, equity, inclusion, bullcrap. We're a nation of diversity. We're strengthened by diversity. That's all bullcrap that a lot of these college elites that have taught many of their students that have come through that don't have real world experience. That's just total bullcrap. All right. I'm sorry. Diversity does not make America stronger. Diversity makes America weaker. Diversity and thought and thinking, sure, where we can debate, go back and forth. That's not what the left is talking about. They love their people groups. They love the LGBTQ barbecue community. They love dividing men and women. You name it. They love dividing people because the left loves chaos. And what happens is, and sadly, we're starting to see this occur within the Republican Party, too. It's gotten so divisive within the Republican Party. I'm not even sure that we can win 2024. A lot of ignoramuses within the Republican Party. I'm so tempted to leave. You cannot believe it. But I'm not even convinced that we want to win 2024, to be frank with you. But said having that, we've gotten so divided, so divided that we're giving the elites exactly what they want. And so I'm like, can we at least unite here? We need to seal up these freaking borders. I'm sorry. I appreciate that there's a lot of people that want to come to America legally, but you're going to have to be punished because of the sins of the Biden administration letting people in illegally. So we've got 1 .1 approximately million people coming into this country. Every year, I want to ramp that back. I want that cut in half or I want a moratorium. And frankly, I would prefer a moratorium on illegal immigration, 7 or 10 years, whatever it takes us to make up this amount. And I want the people that have come in in the last couple of years deported. Full stop. Full stop. All right, for the Ilhan Omar's and all these people that think America is evil, why the hell would you want people to come to this country if it's so evil? Except that there's a plan. I want the visa overstays. They need to be deported. That's something that a lot of people don't consider. But even visa overstays, that's a way in which a lot of people come into this country. They stay in this country. We don't search for them in places like Australia, New Zealand. If you're there on a visa, a work visa of any sort, the day that your visa is up or perhaps the day before, they are knocking at your door, making sure that you're packing and ready to leave. We need to do the same thing. I really don't give a flip what your skills are at this point. I really don't. I really don't. Merit -based job -related reasons. When Trump was in office, this is one of the things that Trump said he wanted to do, unfortunately. And I got to find the quote. He literally said at the time, this is something we could work on after the 2020 election. Unfortunately, the left beat him to it. That is why when you have power, when you're in office, you better use it. You don't wait for jack crap. You use it. You use it. We can never make those mistakes again. The executive orders, great. We need legislation. And you use that power and you twist ankles, you twist knuckles, you twist elbows, you do whatever you got to do to use power. That is the difference between the right and the left. The right is willing to wait for elections, but the left, even when they lose elections, they seem to win because their agenda always moves forward. It's amazing to me. But at the time, Trump said, listen, this merit -based thing, when it comes to job -related reasons, let's grow that right now. 12 % of the people come into this country that's merit -based, job -related reasons. Let's jump that up to 57%. And I do appreciate that. We didn't get it done. We should have gotten it done. Family -based immigration currently makes up two -thirds of all immigration. That would need to decrease sadly, maybe to one -third. And again, I would prefer a moratorium, but at least we got to start somewhere. When it comes to asylum or diversity visas, they would have to be decreased by more than half. Right now, they stand at about 22 % of immigration. That's legal immigration, by the way. That needs to be cut down to 10%, again, with the caveat that I would prefer a full -out moratorium for the next seven to 10 years. It just has to stop. We've learned what diversity is. And unfortunately, what these elites have been telling our children that are going to these elite colleges and universities, and not even just the elites, I don't care if you go to community college nowadays, the stuff that they're teaching in these schools are just loony. And these people are graduating and running our country. This is Carl Jackson in for the great Dennis Prager. We'll be back in a few pretty soon. I got so much more to get to. It's insane. Stay tuned.

Good morning to all of you Cafe Bitcoiners. It is Monday, October 30th, and it's going to be Halloween tomorrow night. A bunch of people probably did their Halloween stuff over the weekend. There was a bunch of parties and whatever. Anyway, good morning, guys. Good morning, Aunt, Peter, Mickey, Dambe, and gals out there, Tomer, Producer Jacob. By the way, Producer Jacob said that he's thinking about mixing up the intro songs and mix and all that. If you have ideas, if you have songs that you would like to hear played in the morning as we intro the show, everybody sends your request to Producer Jacob. He's going to love me for saying that. What's going on, Aunt? I'm freezing. Are you really? What's the temperature? I don't know, probably like 60 or 50, but that's really cold for Houston. We got problems, Alex. What is this wee shit? Well, Kramer tweeted out yesterday that World War III ain't happening. Why can't everyone just chill? And if the inverse Kramer index is correct, we're in trouble. Oh, yeah. I'm not a big fan of war anymore. I mean, I'm a prior military, but I can tell you from my experience, it don't help much. And it wastes a lot of resources and lives. I saw this thing the other day. I think it was Poso was retweeting something and he was like, wow. You know, people, the Pentagon is basically complaining about the fact that we're low on ammo and bombs and all this other shit and we're expending it all in these foreign wars. And I'm like, bro, who stands to gain from war? Who stands to gain the most? If you are one of these people who own a lot of shares and Lockheed or whatever company is part of the military industrial complex that is building those cruise missiles and the bombs and all that other kind of stuff, and they use it up and it has to be replaced, I guess you're doing okay. You know, I don't know if you guys have heard the name of this dude, but I believe his name, if I'm not saying incorrectly, is M. Shell Meyer Rothschild, founder of the Rothschild banking empire. And I'm going to paraphrase him, but he basically said that the best customer in the world is a nation at war. I don't know. Huey Bono, man. Fight by war, not wars. Destroy power, not people. Well, I mean, one thing you can do is people are like, some people are like, well, what are you going to do about that? Like you can't change it. Really? Really? What if you took your capital out of the Fiat system and you put it into a different system that they cannot use to fuel these endless wars? What if you did that? What if everybody did that? Quoting tip NZ track right there, that's a quote straight out of the intro track. man. Yeah, I don't know. It's time. Feels like it's time. A lot of lizard activity going on lately with all of this, uh, you know, stuff with thin sand, et cetera. We did a bunch of stuff about that last week, but I mean, it's, it's an ongoing thing and will continue to be an ongoing thing. Some people are like, well, yeah, they should know everything about what you're doing. I'm not one of those people. I don't agree with that. I mean, that's bullshit. I think, I think government was created. Government actually exists. If you want to go back to first principles stuff, government exists because of people's desire for protection of private property and persons. That's where it comes from. It's an extension of that. And when it becomes perverted and bastardized and warped, then it starts to do things that you as an individual citizen can't do without being called a criminal. That's how you know it's broken and it's gone far beyond its original mandate. I'm talking about, well, the U S in particular, but many forms of government were, were meant to be that way. It's an extension of, of personal protection and private property. You know, Alex, I wanted to piggyback off that statement you just made with like taking money out of the Fiat system to, to fight like war propagation. Just consider like the, cause like most people think, uh, speaking in hyperbole generalization here, obviously, but most people think that they like to your, your point that they like, well, what can we do about like the system? Just like consider a small, like what a small movement or a small action across a large populace is capable of doing. Like if, if there's like what, 350 million people in the United States, if, if you were to remove $1 per person, that would just be $350 million taken out of like the Fiat system and put into Bitcoin, that's like basically acting as a, uh, as a, uh, protest against the system. Right. Like if we could, like, that's the point of getting like adoption kind of like to, to carry off and to take off like wildfire. Like if we could have a system where people or anybody was capable of just like buying a dollars worth of Bitcoin a day, like that would be, that would be like a, a monumental power shift. I think that would scare the system entirely between like the politicians and Lockheed Martin and all these different contractors. And like, it's, it's in a pretty powerful message in my opinion.

A highlight from Mike Gallagher Week in Review Podcast for 10.27.23
"Welcome to The Mike Gallagher Show Week in Review Podcast. This is Friday, October 27, 2023. I'm Eric Hansen. This has been a busy week, to be sure. Let's start with probably the biggest political development of the week. After weeks of dissension, Republicans finally came together to elect a Speaker of the House. It's Mike Johnson of Louisiana. Pretty extraordinary when it comes to his conservative bona fides. Don't believe me? I hope you had a chance to see or hear his speech yesterday when he was welcomed as the Speaker of the House. If not, let me give you this amazing example of the Democrats' worst night. And they helped create this now. Remember, they could have saved Kevin McCarthy. And the Democrats said, no, we've got no reason to save Kevin McCarthy. Well, now they've got a conservative extraordinaire. This guy, Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson. America is the only nation in the world that is founded upon a creed. He said it's listed with almost theological lucidity in the Declaration of Independence. What is our creed? We hold these truths to be self -evident. That all men are created equal, not born equal, created equal. And they are endowed by the same inalienable rights, with the same inalienable rights. Life, liberty, pursuit of happiness. That is the creed that has animated our nation since its founding, that has made us the great nation that we are. And we're in a time of extraordinary crisis right now. And the world needs us to be strong. They need us to remember our creed and our admonition. Termal and violence have rocked the Middle East and Eastern Europe. We all know it. Intentions continue to build in the Indo -Pacific. The country demands strong leadership of this body, and we must not waver. Our nation's greatest ally in the Middle East is under attack. The first bill that I'm going to bring to this floor in just a little while will be in support of our dear friend Israel. And we're overdue in getting that done. How great is that guy so far? Now again, now again, bottom line here is there was turmoil. The Republicans were unified. A speech is one thing. But everything that I'm learning about Mike Johnson, and we're all getting a quick primer on Mike Johnson, is it primer or primer? I think it's a primer. The cliff notes, the cheat sheet, the white sheet. Everything we're learning about this guy is a grand slam home run. And the Democrats are squealing. They can't believe it. They're flipping out. Well, all they had to do was support Kevin McCarthy, and they'd have had Kevin McCarthy. It's delicious. Meanwhile, in Lewiston, Maine, news of another terrible mass shooting. Mike talked to our radio colleague and Maine morning man Ray Richardson to get a local view of this awful event. You know Maine better than anybody I know, and I love the state of Maine. And I'm just so heartbroken for what your community is going through. And you're right. I've known that the community is known to leave their doors open. Kids play at dusk. It's not like other parts of the country. But tell us about firearms and the community. Tell us about what people do with weapons. Because there seems to be an emerging narrative. After the Hamas attack in Israel and now this awful mass shooting in Maine, I'm hearing more and more people say, you know what, we better be armed. We've got to be able to protect ourselves, to defend our family. What's the mindset regarding the Second Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms and people with firearms in the great state of Maine, Ray Richardson? Mike, this is a state that is a huge Second Amendment state. On a per capita basis, now we're small. We're about 1 .3 million people statewide. But on a per capita basis, we're always one, two or three in the nation in ownership of firearms. This is a state that respects firearms. People here hunt. That's one of our big sports here. People love to just go out and do sports shooting.
A highlight from Is THIS The Worst Real Estate Market EVER? (Just The Facts!)
"Welcome to Real Estate Coaching Radio, starring award -winning real estate coaches and number one international bestselling authors, Tim and Julie Harris. This is the number one daily radio show for realtors looking for a no BS, authentic, real time coaching experience. What's really working in today's market, how to generate more leads, make more money, and have more time for what you love in your life. And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. Julie Harris, I have a question for you. You write for Housing Wire, National Association of Realtors, California Association of Realtors, Florida Association of Realtors. You wrote one of the bestselling real estate books. Well, you did 90 % of it if we're being honest, Harris Rules. You've been referred to as the number one real estate coach in the nation and we're America's number one coaches according to National Association of Realtors. So I have a question for you because I'm positioning you as the authority figure of the authority figures. Is this the worst real estate market of all of our lifetimes and let's just make that 50 years? Yes, actually it is and it may feel like that to many of you, our listeners, but we're talking about the worst in terms of sales. Now let's put some numbers to that and in fact, today's podcast, we're going to talk about six key facts on how to use the information with your clients and prospects because you do have clients and prospects. Now let's just define what that means though and then I don't want to stump, I won't trip over too many of your points because I don't want to discourage anybody. We'll keep it positive today. Well, so good news is that in the worst real estate market ever, there's still going to be roughly 4 million home sales. 3 .96 million is the projection as of yesterday. Not that Julie hasn't memorized. Weirdo. You asked. I know. All right. So let's just say 3 .69 million. 9 .6, but yeah. Okay. Got it. Okay. We wouldn't want to round it up to 4 million, would we? Roughly. In any event, and if I remember correctly, there's less than 700 ,000 new construction homes. Right. So just focusing on the resale aspects of it. So roughly 4 million home sales, that's still 8 million, you know, sides, right? So there's 8 million commission checks that were written to, you know, a lot of different real estate agents. So you got to put that in perspective because there's, I don't know how many agents there will be at the end of this year, but let's just say around 1 .6 million, and that's probably meaning that roughly 30 % of all real estate agents are transacting in probably meaningful numbers. Yes. We know that to be pretty accurate. And statistically, that's how it usually works out too. Sure. The distribution curve essentially of real estate transactions. Some people have it as a side hustle or a part -time job, but the ones that are serious is about 30 % of that crowd. Now here's the thing that's interesting. We're going to share with you guys a lot of facts, but there's, right now, when you think about all this, there's roughly 4 million real estate transactions setting aside new construction. And if we know that that is essentially the bottom of the market for at least all of our lifetimes, which it really is, this is a tougher market than even, I think the real estate crash, truthfully. In many ways, that's true. Well, there certainly wasn't a lack of inventory back in 2007, 2008, 2009. Well, the joke back then was we should have an MLS that was stuff that wasn't for sale because it'd be smaller than the stuff that was for sale. So yes, I would say that our lack of inventory, our continued starvation of inventory makes this a tougher market. And yet still almost 4 million deals. So the point is, is that in the worst market ever, listeners, here's your big takeaway. There's going to be at least 4 million transactions, which makes, if you know what to do to make the most of this market, you're still going to do incredibly well. Because those are 4 million people that had to sell. They're focused on absolutely positively selling. And that's the heart of the coaching that Julie and I have done for two decades, is focusing primarily on sellers and then learning how to fish out the sellers that absolutely have to sell, not want to sell. And here's validation of it, you have roughly every year, even, I'm sorry, in the worst real estate market in decades, you still have at least 4 million transactions that are going to happen. Now, here's the good news. This is probably the bottom, let's say this cycle we're in now is probably the bottom. The sheer number of people, demographics here, listeners, that are going to want to transact in the next, you know, 1 to 5 to 10 years is off the charts historically in the most amount of demand in certainly the history of the United States. And I'm saying that with 100 % conviction when you factor in the sheer number of humans that are at the perfect age or cycles in their lives to buy or sell real estate. So even if we are at the bottom of the market now, and you could certainly blame interest rates and lack of inventory, that will not last. And when it pivots back, we will be experiencing a real estate boom like we've never seen before in the history. So that's, imagine, remember those old, what are those things called that people used to put on their desk? A pendulum? Pendulum or something. Yes. You know, they made that noise. The swinging thing. The swinging thing with the silver balls or whatever. It goes back and forth. Yeah, exactly. So what's happened now is essentially it's gone off over to one side, it's going to swing back to the other side. Now, when will that happen? 18 months or less, 24 months or less, because Julie and I, we pay very close attention to obviously interest rates as a lot of you guys do. And there was a little news report that came out yesterday, which I'm sure no one's reporting on. And Julie, you might want to tell your friends at HousingWire about this. There is reasons to believe that Fannie, Freddie are going to come out of receivership. And once they do, they're going to start buying MBS. Now, what does all that mean? One of the reasons that the interest rates have increased is because the Fed is no longer buying mortgage -backed securities. Don't worry. I will not talk about this for very long. Warning. Warning. It won't be that boring for that long. I just want some of you out there who are wonkish like Julie and I. So when Fannie and Freddie come out of receivership, which it looks like they're going to, that means that they're going to start buying mortgage -backed securities. When they start buying mortgage -backed securities, that means the interest rates are going to fall again. Aha. Yes, which is all good news. And it looks like that's going to happen next year, if not in the next six months. So that's kind of exciting.
"millions people" Discussed on Climate Connections
"I'm doctor Anthony Liz, and this is climate connections. As mountain glaciers melt, they create high altitude lakes, damned by rocks or ice. If pressure builds or landslides or ice avalanches occur, that natural dam can break. Water and debris can then rush down the mountainsides, devastating communities. Tom Robinson is a senior lecturer in disaster risk and resilience at the university of Canterbury. He says global warming is causing glaciers to melt faster. And so there's more water going into these lakes. Water that can flood communities. In a recent study, Robinson assessed the risks on a global scale. While all studies done is not just look to where the lakes are and how big those likes are. We've actually looked at how many people live in the catchments downstream of those lakes and how vulnerable those people are to impact from flooding. The researchers found that about 15 million people are at risk, and more than half of them live in just four countries. India, Pakistan, Peru and China. So Robinson urges communities to prepare. He says engineering solutions like installing sluice and gates or lowering the Lake levels could help protect people. And he says everyone can do their part by reducing global warming.

"millions people" Discussed on Cyber Security Today
"Only four months old, and so far almost 340 million people have been affected by publicly reported data breaches or leaks. Of that number, 235 million where the usernames and email addresses of Twitter users leaked in January. The second largest leak was the theft of data on 37 million subscribers of American wireless carrier T mobile. These numbers are according to a public data breach tracker created by the UK news site, the independent. Hackers continue finding ways of getting cash by breaking into cryptocurrency wallets. According to the tech crunch news site, the latest victims have email accounts with American provider AT&T. Somehow the attackers were able to use the option allowing users to create digital mail keys for email accounts so they don't have to log in with a password. With the keys, the hackers logged into victim's accounts and reset their passwords for certain services they subscribed to, including if they have one, their crypto accounts. One victim said he lost a $135,000 in cryptocurrency. AT&T told TechCrunch it has now updated its security controls to stop this unapproved access. The hacker used an API access for their work, AT&T said, a hacking group that researchers call thin 7 is going after servers running the backup and replication. That's according to experts at with secure. Now, they aren't sure, but assume the group is looking for servers that haven't been patched with a recently issued update. IT departments need to ensure that unwanted PowerShell scripts aren't lurking on their systems, and that all applications are running the latest versions of software. VMware has issued security updates for VMware workstation and fusion. These close four critical vulnerabilities involving connecting to Bluetooth devices. A malicious actor with local administrative privileges on a virtual machine can exploit this issue. Administrators running Apache superset and open-source data visualization and exploration tool being worn to install the latest update, the problem is many are running with a default configuration that exposes a default digital key. Now, that's not important if the tool isn't open to the Internet. But researchers at horizon three AI say some 2000 servers are both open to the Internet and running with a default configuration. The risk is a skilled attacker can log in as an administrator by forging a session cookie, then access the rest of the IT infrastructure. The problem is solved by installing the update and changing the default password and finally, users of Google's authenticator app for two factor authentication has recently added the option of account synchronization, which backs up the two FA data to the cloud, and then that way your access can be restored to a new phone. However, researchers at sappho's say synchronization isn't safe yet. And that's because it doesn't have a pass phrase, capability, nor a synchronization offered with end to end encryption. We'll keep you informed of when it's safe. That's it for now. But later today, the week in review edition will be available.

"ESPN. And the national championship game is underway. Nearly 10 million people watched the 2023 NCAA women's basketball championship game between the LSU tigers and the Iowa hawkeyes on ESPN this year. It was the highest viewed women's college basketball game in history. The tigers eventually winning their first title in program history in a one O two 85 victory. National championship. Iowa's Caitlin Clark set records during her run scoring a 191 points at tournament record men's or women's and winning the 2023 wooden award, which is given to the most outstanding player. Ellis used angel Reese was certainly a star too, averaging 23 points and 15 rebounds a game throughout the season. So this was certainly a game to watch. But what happened during it and afterwards has been talked about all week long. Angel Reese, heavily criticized for her, you can't see me motion to Caitlin Clark, a gesture that Clark had made earlier in the tournament. Reese explained after the game, all year, I was critiqued about who I was. Nobody, the narrative, I don't fit the narrative. I don't fit in the box that y'all want me to be in. I'm too hood. I'm too ghetto. Y'all told me that all year. But when other people do it, y'all don't say nothing. So this was for the girls that looked like me. That is going to speak up on what they believe in. It's unapologetically you. And that's what I did it for tonight. It was bigger than me tonight. And Clark while speaking with ESPN, didn't think the criticism was warranted. I don't think angels should be criticized at all. No matter which way it goes, she should never be criticized for what she did. You know, I'm just one that competes, and she competed. So I think everybody knew there was going to be a little trash talk in the entire tournament. It's not just me and angels. So I don't think she should be criticized like I said. LSU deserves it. They played so well. And like I said, I'm a big fan of hers. Son or questioning, if there's a race or gender double standard here. Basketball Hall of Famer and current ESPN analyst Rebecca lobo, ABC News contributors Mike mewes and Christine Brennan joined Diane vice on ABC News live. There's a lot of debate over whether Caitlyn and angel actually did the same thing. So what did you think when you still have it blew up on social media? My initial reaction was, I guess part of this is good because we're talking about women's basketball. We had record ratings for that game over 10 million people watching 12 million and its peak, which was probably when angel made the gesture. So I think any time you're talking about women's basketball, after the fact, it's a good thing. But then some of the layers started to be unraveled a little bit. And you felt a little bit of the gender conversation in the race conversation and that piece made it, of course, a lot more troubling. But my initial reaction was being glad that people were talking about women's basketball. Mike some are saying these are two different things that what they did was actually different. Others are saying the difference here is the color of their skin. And on the I am athlete podcast. Angels said, I feel like we went into a space where it's black women against white women. So it feels like this conversation is about more than just a moment in a basketball game. It is a more than just about a moment in basketball game. We learned as the society now where we can't we have to look at things often through a social construct. The idea that Kate and Clark did this exact same gesture and people laughed at it, people enjoyed it. You know, people thought it was really great, you know, taunting. And trash talking. And so then when this does it, then it becomes classless. It becomes unladylike. And then you couldn't help, but think about the race dynamic that was occurring and the double standards because both are the same gender. So it wasn't a gender issue, but there was something about angel Reese. People had such a visceral reaction to it. Angeles talk openly about how she has had so much people talking negatively about her throughout the entire season, calling her terms like ghetto. And so you couldn't help but bring race into this conversation. Christine, this is also sparking a conversation about gender, because Caitlyn Clark is now coming to angel's defense, telling ESPN. This was trash talk. It's part of the game just like when men play. And on the other hand, some are saying that if a man did this, it would have been a technical foul. So what do you think? Is this a gender double standard? Tell me there's gender double standards and racial double standards as we're talking about here. And I certainly defer to Rebecca the Hall of Fame run, everything involving women's basketball. But I think this is the greatest one of the greatest things ever for women's basketball. The issues are layered. It is a national conversation. I think sports always takes us to good national conversations, even if it's top as we go through it. But in the end, they're both winners that are both going to make millions in NIL. Rebecca, how do we talk to our kids about being good sports? Because with social media name image and likeness deals, players are almost encouraged to be kind of loud and in your face. So how do we then teach our kids that we're coaching or raising to be good sports? Well, I think that's up to each parent or each coach what they allow their player to do or what they encourage their player to do. We had opportunities to be around angel reason, enjoyed her. And our thoughtful conversations with her about basketball and how sharing and giving she was when talking about her teammates to a set to a sort of sign up, a certain character trait on her towards her because of a celebration she did is completely unfair. At the same time, certain coaches are going to allow certain things, certain parents are going to allow or encourage certain things from their athlete. And I think that's up to each person to determine what kind of behavior

Leading GOP gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder is making a final push to win over more voters as California's recall election wraps up today. During a campaign stop in Monterey Park yesterday, the conservative talk show host said the number of people who signed the recall petition shows the state needs new leadership there. Two million people that signed that petition. A good A quarter of them to a third of them were the very people that voted for him. Just two years earlier. I'm talking about independents and Democrats. 63% of Hispanics voted for him two years earlier. Now the majority of Hispanics want him out. Meanwhile, Governor Gavin Newsom was getting a high powered assist in an effort to keep his job. President Biden stumped with him in Long Beach. But before arriving in Southern California, Biden made a visit up north, where he visited the governor's Office of Emergency Services Command Center. And we're working closely with governor newsman to make sure California has every resource every resource available to keep families safe. Biden also took a helicopter tour they called or fire burn area. He said that decades of force management decisions are playing a part in the huge wildfires California's been experiencing, but the effects of climate change happens well and cannot be ignored. Smoke from wildfires is extremely harmful, and that risk is even higher for farm workers who have to be outside to do their jobs. So the California state Legislature wants to make sure and 95 masks are readily available for them. But that idea is running into opposition is KCRW's Tara Patriotic explains. State lawmakers passed the Farmworker Wildfire Smoke Protections Act last week. The bill aims to safeguard farmworkers from hazardous wildfire smoke. It's now awaiting Governor Newsom signature for full approval. If the measures signed into law, California's agricultural employees will be designated as essential workers and farms must have a study stockpile at 95 masks for them. But industry insiders and researchers say the proposal isn't practical at all. That's because some workers don't like to wear masks outdoors and 95 can be uncomfortable and challenging to breathe through, not to mention face coverings can easily get dirty and contaminated by pesticides and dust. Critics say the bill is a band aid solution. What's really needed is larger, systemic reform that would provide health care to farm workers, many of whom are undocumented, U C. Berkeley estimates there are about 800,000 Farm workers in California. Support for NPR comes from NPR stations and from his car.

Yeah, It really comes in three branches here Kristina a trillion dollars in direct relief to families, including $1400 stimulus checks to every American. This added onto the 600 previously approved gets you to that 2000 number that so many people, including President Trump had been pushing for in the last round of negotiations.
