A highlight from Michael and Thomas Pack
"Welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show. Have you heard that some people have a nose for news? Well, Eric has a nose for everything. That's why this is called The Show About Everything. Now welcome your host, who definitely passes the smell test, Eric Mataxas. Hey there, folks. Welcome to the show. It's The Eric Mataxas Show. I play the role of Eric Mataxas. In this show, which is nonfiction, I interview people, usually on subjects that are close to my heart or that I think are important. Today I'm talking to filmmaker Michael Pack, who's been on this show before, who is responsible for a brilliant documentary called Created Equal, Clarence Thomas in his own words, and other things, and also Michael's son, Thomas Pack. We are going to talk about something that is as close to my heart as anything could be. It's the idea of bringing, let's call them conservative values, although that's just a fancy way of saying truth and reality, into media. It is crucial. People of faith, people of Christian values have dropped the ball on this for, I don't know, about 100 years roughly. So whenever somebody is getting into this game, I want to do everything I can to get to know them and to bring them to you, the audience of this program. So Michael Pack and Thomas Pack, welcome and thank you for being with us today. Thank you for having us on, Eric. It's a pleasure to be back on your show. Well, as you know, Michael, I am hot to trot on the subject of what I just mentioned. Now, you just wrote an article at Real Clear Politics. I want to talk to you about that because you sort of summarize what I was just getting at or you explicate what I was just summarizing. Talk a little bit about that and you can mention upfront as well what Thomas is doing. So lead us into the conversation. Well, you're right. The Real Clear piece, which is a bit long, so I guess I explicate rather than summarize, but it tries to lay out what's happened in the culture war over the last at least 50 years, maybe you're right, closer to 100. And what we can do about it. I mean, the fact is, as everyone knows, the progressive left dominates the culture. And they have at least since the 60s where they announced a long march for the institutions and they said they were going to work to take over first the university and then other cultural institutions, and they have succeeded. But I say, Eric, that it is to their credit. This is a battle of ideas. And especially in the area of film and television, they're fighting for the ideas they believe in. You are quite right that we on our side have failed. They're to be commended for succeeding. They're fighting for what they believe in. I agree with you that what they believe in isn't right. So that's a negative, but they're commended for fighting for it. And over those years, they've built up institutions that supported and defended and make it possible. So I lay that out in the real clear piece, which people can also find on my on my Twitter page, Michael Pack underscore. But so I try to give how so over 50 years, the left has poured tens of billions of dollars into this process, and it is their right to do so. And we ought to say that they have allied themselves with a very powerful ally in the form of Satan. We don't need to we don't need to get more specific than that. But people need to understand that, you know, you're very gracious by saying, oh, they're fighting for their ideas. Their ideas are harmful to human beings, not to conservatives, not to people of faith, to human beings in general. And so you're right that they believe in these ideas. But I just have to say, speaking to you as a Jew, you know, Hitler believed in his ideas. So because somebody believes in their ideas, they get, oh, well, they've got their ideas. We have our ideas. I agree with you 100 percent. I know. No, of course, I know you do. And you're being gracious. So go ahead. But but the but but that's right. I mean, one way of looking at their ideas is they have a negative view of America just taking that one slice of it. And we have a positive, upbeat view of America. I mean, we we are documentary producers, and I think this is this left takeover of culture is both in drama, fiction and nonfiction and in the nonfiction realm. It's clear as a bell. The 1619 Project, which began in print, was now a multi -part Emmy nominated Netflix series. And and on like that is America based on racism and the defense of slavery, or is it based on the principles of the Enlightenment? Jefferson laid out in the Declaration of Independence and it matters for the country and the world which side you're on. So I agree with you. But their ideas are wrong. But given that they're wrong, they're right to fight for them. So we need to fight for ours. But but we have we have the model of what they have done and we need to just do it, too. It is not that hard. It's not that complicated. It was not a conspiracy on the part of the left. They announced they were going to do it. It's their right to do it. And they did it. I mean, I mean, even in America, communists, for example, have every right to promulgate their views, which I think is appropriate, given the First Amendment. It doesn't make their views right, but it does give them the right to promulgate them. And it's well, think of the irony, though, that the left is increasingly I mean, just to be fair, that it is because of biblical values, it is because of the values of the founders of this nation, that people on the left. On the wrong side, have the right, which we have given them to promulgate their views, it is why Nazis could march through Skokie, Illinois. It is right, so we believe in free speech. We believe in this kind of stuff. But the irony is that we're now living in a time where we're seeing the left having gained power, use it to squelch and censor voices with whom they disagree. So in other words, they were willing to ride the train of free speech as long as it helped them. And then now that they've gained the upper hand culturally and in other ways, they're suddenly deciding, you know what, free speech was nice. It was nice for a while. But now we don't want those conservatives to have a voice. So there's an irony here, which ought to be mentioned. There is. They're now the enemies of free speech. And in part, it's because, as you say, it's no longer convenient. But in part, it's because of the radicalization of liberalism, the sort of left liberal part of the Democratic Party. I mean, it used to be since the 60s, the new left has been an enemy of free speech. Herbert Mercuza and company never believed in free speech. But that was a minority view on the left. And now, as you say, it's increasingly popular under other rubrics like stopping disinformation and misinformation. And it is. Do they get that from Stalin? I'm always trying to trace these ideas back. I believe it was the Moscow School of Stalin. In any event, I think, you know, legally, you know, Karl Marx did not believe in human rights and individual rights. And he his whole worldview is opposed to that. If you believe in historical determinism and you know which way the world is going, why encourage freedom of speech? So both left and right, Hegelianism, Marx being left Hegelianism, was not really in favor of these kinds of freedoms, these Enlightenment freedoms. And in a sense, they were a reaction against it. I'm not an expert on this, though. Eric, you're going to get into topics too deep for me pretty soon. Well, obviously, we're not here really to talk about this exactly, but it's worth touching on. Well, look, the good news, the headline to me is that you and Thomas, whom we will let get a word in edgewise momentarily, are creating award winning, fabulous documentary films and trying to encourage others to do the same. It's it really is a wonderful thing, as you and I have discussed. I'm getting involved in that a number of media projects and yours have been done with such extraordinary excellence that, you know, even those on the left have had begrudgingly to honor you when we come back. I want to get into everything and I want to ask you, Thomas, about this kind of conservative incubator film project that that you're putting together. Folks, it's the Eric Metaxas show, ericmetaxas .com. Don't go away. Folks, have I told you about Moink? M -O -I -N -K. That's moo plus oink. I get all our meat and our salmon from them. M -O -I -N -K. Moink delivers grass fed and grass finished beef and lamb, pastured pork and chicken, sustainable wild caught salmon straight to your door.

A highlight from Rising Auto Theft Rates: Urban Consequences and Solutions
"Well, you see how easy this is now. Now you look at how they move money around and how the in your face money laundering folks, this is what this is. This is corruption and fraud. Some of the Bidens are great at the money laundering part. They got 20 shell corporations, but guess who's getting the guess who's going to be controlling the funding to rebuild Ukraine. We pay to destroy it. And guess what? The Hillary Clinton Foundation gets paid the rebuild Welcome right. to the podcast. We are in the same studio today, which is kind of nice. So thanks again for downloading. If you're just listening, if you're watching or watching the clips, uh, thanks for watching as well. And just for a quick mention, so I don't forget, if you haven't downloaded our app yet, I'm noticing we're getting a lot of downloads and the cool thing is when the morning Mike's program is going Monday, Wednesday, Friday, I'm the, seeing the view count go up and up and up, which is awesome. So I know we're only, you know, we're still in the dozens. I'd like to get into the hundreds and eventually thousands, um, but it's a cool program. If you haven't listened to it, it's a quick 15 minutes to quick by morning, run down three days a week of the top five topics, three minutes each. Do a great job. They do an awesome job when we're, when we fill in the stuff. We screw the whole thing up. Yes. Yeah. We, we blow the whole, the whole, uh, the schedule, but, um, but they do awesome and they're funny. I love it. It's a quick, you know, down and dirty 15 minutes, top five items of the day. And now you get your day started off on the, uh, they, you know, I think on the right foot, they were saying this week, like, Oh, it's so negative all the time, but I think they're hilarious. They take the negative stuff that's going on, but of course the negative stuff isn't the news. Yeah. Yeah. That's what we're seeing. I mean, carjackings again, Rochester had another, you know, record night. I mean, it's incredible how that was going on. And so it's amazing is, is like the Democrats just sit around and watch this happen in every city and every city. It's insane. Yeah. I sent you an article earlier this morning about Philadelphia. Let's see. I can find it. It's, uh, not that it's anything out of, you know, anything that we don't know about, but let's see here. Philadelphia swarmed by alleged juvenile. Come on, come on. Juvenile looters targeting the Apple store, Lulu lemon and footlocker. Yeah. So, cause they're starving. They're starving. They just, just need a little piece of ham and some Turkey. They need clothes and food. That's, that's only fair. I mean, they, you know, and once again, I know we've all heard this joke, but footlocker is not missing one pair of working boots. No, no, all the Nike's, all the Nike. Yeah. Well, some of those Nike's, I mean, Oh my God. Crazy. You know, talking about like, you know, thousands of dollars for a pair of, thousands, thousands of dollars. I was talking to my daughter and she said to one, one of her friends has a, as a pair of shoes were $1 ,200. I'll never forget the most expensive pair of shoes I ever bought. We were just starting a business. This was like 30 years ago now. Right. Crazy to think. And I remember somebody told me that maybe my dad was like, you got to have a decent pair of shoes. Right. And so I went up and I bought a pair of Justin and Murphy's. They're like 120 bucks at the time. Yeah. The most money I have ever spent on a pair of shoes. Now boots, I've spent more money on since because boots are more expensive, you know, hunting boots. Well, there's a purpose to them. I still don't spend more money on shoes. Like I'm wearing like Skechers or like $40. Like some of these Nike's $500. You can't tell me you're running faster. It's different when you're going to go out and buy a pair of like waders or something. You're going to use them. First of all, you're going to use them for the next 30 years. Right. And there's a purpose to them, right? Like, okay, they're more expensive, but I can walk through the water with them. Right. But if I bought like, if I had five, 600 hour pairs of shoes, I'd be afraid to leave the house. I wouldn't, I wouldn't get off the carpeting. Well, they're targeting the Apple store here, Glenn, because they'll buy jobs. And that's the only way to get a job is to make sure you've got an Apple iPhone. So it'll be like Chicago. We talked about this the other week with, with, uh, with Mike Speraza, Chicago is now forced to open or, or just talking about opening, you know, a, a government run grocery store in the inner city because they've all that. Well, they're going to, so they're going to, they're going to, the plan is to fight the communism with more kind of communism, right? That's going to work really well. But could you imagine how inefficient, first of all, Walmart's pulled out, Costco's pulled out, all the stores have pulled out because now target, have you heard targets now closing stores across the country? So target is now going through and discussing all the stores across the country, liberal target, liberal target. They put a black lives matter that they ripped down the smash of the window. I thought that'd be some sort of a shield or that we're just going to put up this, uh, this plywood and we're going to spray black lives matter on it. Hashtag hashtag BLM. And we'll be safe as they rip it out and use that same plywood to smash the window with. It's pathetic. There'll be nothing left in these inner cities. The problem is when it starts to spill over into the, into the, Oh yeah. This is, this is where it gets ugly. Well, they want it. That's what they want. That's, that's why people like, uh, the governor of New York, uh, you know, Kathy, the ice queen, Kathy Hochul is, is, you know, they first tried the push for section eight housing in the suburbs because that was only fair. Yeah. Now they couldn't get that through because the people in the suburbs are like, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Now they're busing in illegal immigrants in the middle of the night. And I tell you something, if these Democrats like Mark Poland cars were proud of what they were doing, they would have a welcoming party at noon at noon, high noon. They'd have a press conference welcoming our newest community members off the bus so that the whole community could see these family units that are getting off. You got the husband, the wives, the two kids, you know, the things that we see in our country, right? No, it's not happening. They're bringing them in at two o 'clock in the morning. So nobody sees, they're all, they're all 23 year old males, right? Or 18 to 25 year old males. Some of which are from the Congo. I don't know about the, uh, you know, the, some of the social norms in the Congo, but I'm just thinking that maybe they're a little bit different than the Western world. I don't know. I'm just thinking maybe not. Maybe they're exactly like us. I don't know. But they're exactly like us. Why would they want to come here? Why are they aspiring to come here? I don't know. Anyway, it's a fentanyl fentanyl up again, by the way, there was another report. I think it was on a Fox news. Well, good for the Republicans. I mean, at least part of them, I should say good for the five or six Republicans that are the extreme right wing, according to the media, that's holding this garbage up. No, shut the government down, shut it down, shut it down until there's no more money. Take the money, go into Ukraine and send it to Texas, which they did right to the border, which they didn't do last time. Right. Kept it open. That's what do you need? What do you need? We're out of control. The founding fathers gave the power of the purse to Congress and the, and the Pentagon, the Pentagon goes, yeah, you know what? We're just going to exempt Ukraine funding from the budget. So ha ha. We just went over 33 trillion. If you go online and look at the clock, it's moving fast, right? So we're on our way to 34 or 35. Can you even see the numbers anymore? They just blur blur now. So, so fast. Oh no. And, and good news, by the way, we're refinancing this debt at 5 % now, not at 1 % or zero like we were doing. Yeah. It makes a lot of sense. Yeah. It'd be great. Yeah. The fence talk about keeping rates higher for longer. I don't know. They're not going to be able to do that. They'll be cutting interest rates by next year. Mark by where? And the number one reason I say that is because when you talk to every economist, I say, that's not going to happen. And they are typically wrong. So if you take the, it's like saying betting against the casino, it's like saying, you know what? I don't think MGM is going to make money in the sporting books next year. Ma, they're going to figure out a way to make money. They'll rechange the lines, right? Well, you, all you need to do is look at it and get a bunch of economists in a room and ask them where they think the market's going to be and then do just the opposite and you would be way better. Yeah. Pretty much that's usually the way to go. No doubt about it. So the, the, the, the Pelosi, we were talking earlier about the Pelosi stock trader. Yeah. You can follow online. Now, some of these folks, we did the game show game last week. We talked about the, uh, the net worth. I picked the poor ones too. They were like 23, 21, you know, $20 million. Some of these folks are amazing. I mean, really just, you know, the wizards of smart on some of these are just really, timing is impeccable up here. This is somebody who is selling some software that I'll track it, which you can, you, you've pointed out, you can get it for free online, but, but the, the numbers are really astonishing. This Democrat Senator sold her Aspen vacation home for $25 million. That was just after she sold her Lake Tahoe vacation house for $36 million. Well, by the way, why, why do they own these big $25, $36 million homes? Well, a big, big part of it is because the taxation of it, right? So a Feinstein who's telling you your ordinary income tax rates are too low. She's shifting that to a capital asset, which is going to create a capital gain in the future or no gain. Or no gain. I mean, they're 10, 10 31. This is why when Donald Trump looked at Hillary Clinton right in the eye and said, you will not get rid of the carry interest deduction and you know it because all of your, I use it, of course, all of her bigger donors donate money to Hillary Clinton. And this is exactly the truth, right? They will never get rid of some of these things. Like they talked about, we're going to get rid of the 10 31 exchanges. Yaha. Yeah. Uh huh. Yeah. So the big developer strokes a giant check to the, to the Democrats off the table. Let's listen to her success though. Amazing. A Senator sold her Aspen vacation home for $25 million just after she sold her Lake Tahoe vacation house for $36 million. Only two years earlier, Diane Feinstein has been a member of the political scene for 32 years and her salary is only $130 ,000 per 130 grand a year. Now it's more now. That's a little bit dated, but it's up, it's up to probably 180 now. But, but listen to this. First of all, if it was up to 580, you're not buying $23 million homes, $36 million homes. No, no, we're going to put in multiple homes. We're going to, we're going to put the Paul Pelosi onto our research committee. You make a million dollars a year. First of all, most of, most business owners that make that kind of money, they didn't make it throughout their whole life, right? They didn't start making a million dollars at 20 years old. They started making a million dollars at 50 years old and it took 30 years to get to that point. Right? So my point is, you're not at a million dollars a year at age 50. If you did it the right way, the hard way, and you did it yourself, you're still not affording a $23 million home, right? Multiple ones. Yeah. Multiple, multiple. Right. Those aren't even her primary residence. Those are her vacation homes. She lives in, she lives in California. Listen to this though. And it's, it's all of them. It's all of them now. This is a, this is from Nancy Pelosi, stock trader. Uh, this is a tweet, uh, a Twitter feed. You can follow Pelosi tracker is what it's supposed to track or underline or something like that. You'll find it. Anyway, uh, three weeks ago, sitting politician bet against the U S economy so far. He's been right. Tom Carper bought $45 ,000 of PSQ and inverse ETF on the tech sector on eight 23, August 23rd. Since then he's plus 3 % while the market is negative 4%. Go figure. Wow. Go figure. Man, these guys are so good. Yeah. And they're not by, they're, I mean, these are, that's some pretty technical strategy. You started getting into options strategies and stuff. I mean, yeah. Yeah. These guys have become very, very slick. It's not just about buying a, you see, it used to be, okay, I'm going to buy X, Y, Z. Then I'm going to vote for or against something. You know, I'm going to short the stock and then I'm going to vote against them for both that, that, that. So the stock goes down or I'm going to vote for something, knowing that it will benefit the company. The stock will go up and in a sense front running. No, they're, they're in the options strategies now. They're in the market. Yeah. They're doing butterfly spreads. Yeah. Crazy stuff going. They're very sophisticated. They shouldn't be allowed to two things. When you go into Congress, I, you know, I would love to have a Congress person run on or present around the following platform, right? Number one, term limits, term limits, top of the list. Number two, though, while you're in Congress for the eight years, or wherever we allow you to serve 10 years, 12 years, whatever it is, you could not invest in a stock market at all. All your investments are frozen or your choices, a model, some kind of a model liquidated go to cash, or you could buy the fidelity balance to counter. You could buy the, you could buy the T -rope price, you know, target retire, whatever, you know, or you go to goes into a blind something or other where you have no idea. Right. It just goes into what you picked a one through five tolerance for risk and somebody else invest. Maybe it's just broad indexing. Maybe that's it. Right. Something that doesn't allow this kind of garbage to go on where, you know, they buy, you know, Tesla stock and then approve a huge, you know, oh, we're going to, guess what? We're going to build a, you know, for government funded battery stations all the country. Of course, Elon comes out and goes, we already got those, you idiots. I did that like four years ago, you morons. Amazing what Elon can do and what the, what the government can. Going back to target for just a second, not to digress, but I found WGRZ, thankfully came up with a list of the, uh, the target stores that will be closing, Mike, the full list of locations all in, all in Republican run. You'll be shocked. Yeah. Yeah. Right in the, uh, the thriving, the, uh, you know, thriving, the Minneapolis, uh, location, the retailer said the decision, the close was really difficult. I wonder if that was after half. That was the one they put the BLM on. Yeah. Oh, that was the one they put the sign on that said, please don't burn our store down. We love you. I hashtag BLM lit it on fire. Yeah, that's right. Yeah. Uh, let's see. I'm shocked though. I wouldn't, I'm surprised you wouldn't stay. I mean, you know, like just collecting, you love them. You love, you support them. This is what you supported. Remember you, you, you raised money, you gave money. Yeah. And guess what they did with that money. They agitators hired to whip up people in the community to smash and burn down your store. You idiots. So there you go. There you go. Nice, nice work. What else do you think, Mike? Uh, New York city's East Harlem neighborhood. That's going to be one that's goes down. I wonder why. Chicago, San Francisco for sure. San Fran. Yeah. San Fran. Uh, by the way, before I forget San Fran, Democrat San Francisco mayor, announces plan to require drug testing, which is good in an effort to, if you're going to receive homeless benefits. Right. But the funny thing was in this same passage, they're going to Texas to try to recruit police officers. The funny thing is is that the people they sent from San Francisco to try to recruit people. They didn't come back. They defected like North Koreans. Some of them got jobs. They get over the wall. They come out, they get over the wall. It was hilarious. No, they didn't go back. Well, the other five stores, Mike, three in Portland, Oregon and two in Seattle, five, three in Portland. They're pulling out of Portland together. All of these inner cities folks will be food deserts. You're going to hear that term. It'll be business deserts. It'll be nothing. Well, business deserts, nothing left, but there'll be, but target, don't forget target. Does target sell food? Yeah. Well, yeah. They sell food. Yeah. For sure. Yeah. Well, I don't go on target. So Walmart I know does Costco for sure. Costco is a food store. I don't think target is as big as Walmart as far as like fresh fruit, but definitely frozen food, all that kind of stuff. You know, aisles of pop and water and chips and right, right, right. And all that kind of stuff. But you can definitely frozen food. You can buy bulk frozen food there. So, so there's going to be food deserts, all over the place, business deserts, whatever you want to call them. You know, it's amazing because you know, the, there's no policing. And the sad thing is that is the problem. It's not, there's no policing. I shouldn't say that. Excuse me. No, you're policing your asses off. I get it. There's no ability. There's no prosecution. There's no bill. You guys are arresting people, putting them in and they go right back on the street. They're getting, they're getting appearance tickets. It's a joke. Your point is no, there is no policing anymore because of the system, the Democrats put together where the police officers aren't going to bother. If you're a police officer and you know that somebody is going to be this, this carjacking or whatever is robbery. And you know that there's a potential, you're going to get an altercation where you're in New York state. There's two police officers that have been brought up on charges recently with almost a hundred percent chance that if you do catch that person, that person will be right back. Yeah. A hundred percent. Why would you bother? Why would you bother? You're not going to put your life in line. No way. You want to go home to see your wife and kids too, and your mother or your husband or whatever. You want to be able to spend your Christmas with your family. Why would you do that? And they know that, right? The Democrats know that. This is, you can't be this stupid. I mean, who allows these people to go right back on the streets and say, this is a good idea without correcting this right away. You can say, okay, bail reform. Our intentions were one thing, but when you look at the fact that in New York state, we are now breaking records in towns like Rochester and Buffalo for the most amount of vehicles being stolen. We can say, okay, look at bail reform, put it in place. It clearly did not work. It's been a total disaster. These towns have turned to shit. We absolutely need to go back in the other direction. They're not doing that. They don't care. They want to, and they're doubling down, tripling down on it, tripling down. We invited this liberal on, you actually were on the show with him and he said, things are actually safer since bail reform. That's what his argument was. His argument was, and by the way, his argument was if we have even less police officers, cities like Buffalo will get safer. Well the thought was less police officers, less arrests. Less arrests means less crime. Dude, you got the whole thing backwards, bro. And not only that, but now we know that, right? Now we know, now you can, I mean, literally auto thefts are up 360 % in Rochester. They're not up 3%. You can say, well, you know, in Buffalo and we're in second place. And they can't play, they can't play in COVID. They're trying to like, well, it was a lockdown. People were at pent up, whatever. Remember that was the, that was the reason for the rioting and the ballooning and burning like, well, people had a lot of pent up. We probably should have locked them down. That was a little bit of the reason for the increase in suicides. You guys, you guys increased suicides because you locked kids in their homes, but it wasn't the reason that they went and decided to steal Nike sneakers from a footlocker. So check this out. Speaking of COVID, this is huge. This is, I don't know if you saw this or not, but this is absolutely ginormously huge. Dr. Fauci was smuggled into CIA headquarters without a record of entry where he participated in the analysis to influence the agency's COVID -19 investigation according to the house select subcommittee on the coronavirus pandemic. Did he need to do much with these left -wing CIA agents? Probably not. No, no, no. That's what they're smuggling him in for. Well they smuggled him in because they didn't want anybody to know that he was part of the PSYOP operation, which was hydroxychloric. By the way, the I think it was a Mayo clinic and some other hospitals now have come out as well as the CDC and said hydroxychloroquine, yes, indeed is an effective treatment for COVID. Oh, by the way, ivermectin also an effective treatment. The CDC now approving that. Now mind you, we're going to keep in mind that if there was any other treatments that couldn't get the emergency use authorization for these vaccines that clearly don't work. Amazingly, I'm still seeing people online go signing off my sixth booster on our way for the sixth shot, proud to get our sixth shot. How about how about one the other day, local left -wing nut job got her sixth booster shot, six shot and she still got COVID and then she said, well, I was so good hiding and it got all my shots and then I went to a concert and I got it at this concert. Well, first of all, you don't know that, but second of all, if you have six shots and you six shots and you still got COVID and you actually think that was a good idea, you don't need a vaccination. You need a mental, you need a mental check. I tell you, I know people during the during the COVID, the height of the COVID that were older, some of our clients actually that were prescribed by a doctor a hydroxy quirk when they were taking it once a week as a as a preventative measure. Yeah. And they, to this day have never had COVID. Yeah. And it's, it's, I mean, so it, but the sad thing is again, you know, we couldn't, it's all about the money now. And that's, you know, when people talk about the evils of capitalism, you're seeing some of that. Now, capitalism is the best thing on the planet, right? As far as, you know, lifting the masses out of poverty and creating amazing amounts of wealth. But the problem is this isn't, this isn't capitalism. What's going on. This is cronyism is what's going on. It is, Hey, look at, I will give you these government dollars. You're going to get this patent. You're going to get this. Unholy marriage between business and government. Mark my word. We were talking about Feinstein selling 25, $30 million homes. This Fauci will be on the board of Pfizer. He'll be on the board of Moderna. He's going to get shares of those companies. He will be blessed with with with millions and millions of dollars. His family watch and see, we'll be talking if we're, if you and I are fortunate enough to be around 20, 30 years from now, we'll be talking about the Fauci trust and watch and monitor that trust and see how big that family trust. Well, you see how easy this is now. You look at how they move money around and how the in your face money laundering folks. This is what this is. This is corruption and fraud. Some of the Bidens are great at the money laundering part. They got 20 shell corporation, but guess who's getting the, guess who's going to be controlling the funding to rebuild Ukraine. We pay to destroy it. And guess what? The Hillary Clinton foundation gets paid to rebuild it. Right. And guess who's going to get the contracts to rebuild. Oh, that'll be probably one of the Biden family members or somebody else's politically connected. Right. Remember it was, it was a Joe Biden's brother who got the contract, the multi -billion dollar contract to rebuild Iraq. No building experience, never been a contractor, right? No idea. Right. This is why these projects cost 500 times what they're supposed to cost. This is why when money comes into Buffalo, for example, $25 million to build homes, five get built. And you were, wait a minute, five, are these $5 million homes in the East side? Each of those homes would have been built for a quarter million dollars or less. And yet where did the rest of the money go? And the, the answer is never, we don't know. We don't know. We can't account for it. Or we'd have no idea. Or I mean, how many times have we've seen that in so many places that whether right down the local level or God forbid at the federal level between, you know, Iraq and others. I was telling you last week on the radio, I was reading an article about the grants that were coming into the city of Buffalo to plant trees. And I thought, okay, wow, like this could be sweet. Okay. You know, like I'm a big tree guy. I love trees. I plant trees every year. I do think, okay, that's one way to, first of all, I think it's one way to make a community look great. When you, when you drive around, let's say North Buffalo, all the streets are all tree. They look beautiful. You drive around the East side, it looks like shit, right? So, okay. You're going to take some of my tax money and you're going to directly plant trees. Okay. It's a win for the environment. It looks nice. It's going to bring things together. I'm like, well, where's the catch? This is a government agency. Where are they going to screw it up? You read through and you find out that they're paying $1 ,000 a tree. Now you and I both know that if they're saying it's $1 ,000 a tree, by the time it's done, it'll be two to $3 ,000 a tree. Now you, you're talking about $13 million worth of trees. You and I just planted trees. Every year we plant a few trees around our office, you know, three, four in the spring, three, four in the fall, just so they can start to grow and work their way in. And then, you know, plant more. We pay $250 a tree, plant it. Right.

A highlight from MONEY REIMAGINED: Breaking Down Barriers to Crypto Adoption | Insights from Jan Van Eck and Matt Hougan
"You're listening to Coindesk's Money Reimagined with Michael Casey and Sheila Warren. Hello and welcome to another edition of Money Reimagined. I'm Michael Casey. Listen to us weekly on the Coindesk podcast network or wherever you get your podcasts. We would love to hear from coindesk .com. Subject line Money Reimagined. Sheila is out this week so it's me on my own but what I'm bringing to you are recordings from an interview I did earlier this month with two leaders in fund management, both of whom have significant interests in crypto. One is Jan Van Eck, the CEO of Van Eck funds and the other is Matt Hogan, chief investment officer at Bitwise Asset Management. Van Eck and Bitwise have both filed applications with for Bitcoin. The question I wanted to put to you guys, and I'll go to you first, Jan, is I've been covering this space for 10 years now. And I think we all thought there may be some tipping point moment when the world would suddenly embrace this. And certainly there's been some incredible growth, both in terms of prices and activity and development, phenomenal growth. But at the same time, it always feels like, no, it's not yet there. So what is the single most important barrier that you see toward wider adoption of crypto? Sure. Thank you. I really break it down into, are you talking about crypto as an investment, as an asset class that should be in people's portfolios, or as a technology to be adopted? And I use this example of the relational database, which was a big breakthrough in the architecture of databases 50 years ago or more. And it created a lot more productivity, almost like AI is doing with technology today. But who cares? It wasn't investable, right? It was a nice technology, but it wasn't investable. So I'll start with the investable aspect of it. And I think that since 2017, I firmly believe that Bitcoin is a store of value alternative to gold. But I also say it's sort of like an eight -year -old child. It's going through evolution and adoption, even this year, with the ordinals kind of break through for a while and sort of transaction fees being a thing in Bitcoin, right? It's evolving, it's code, it's kind of living. And I think there's a lot of investor types that haven't adopted it yet. And that's what I see kind of going forward in the future, whether it's probably frontier countries adopting it more, maybe even formally through their central banks or something like that. I think that's foreseeable. I don't see the German central bank or the central bank buying it anytime soon, but it's possible. One of my colleagues pointed out, I think you all did a survey of, sorry, this is a long answer, but yeah, Coindesk did a survey, I think, of perceptions globally of crypto and there was a big break between EM and I guess specifically it was energy usage. It being friendlier for energy usage was the majority view in the emerging markets and in the developed markets, it wasn't that, it was the opposite. So anyway, I see Bitcoin as kind of going through cycles and gradually getting more investor adoption, the ETF aside. So let me stop there and give it to my colleague, Matt. Thanks John. I agree. And I like that separation of investment case versus sort of maybe real world utility. I would add on the investment case, I think it's already there. I agree. It's a digital alternative to gold. And so the people who are holding it are using it for its use case. And I think the barrier to mainstream adoption really is the ETF. I know we'll talk about that more later, but I think if you look back at gold, it was the ETF that brought it into the mainstream. There were a few gold funds before the ETF. Van Eck ran one of the longest running, maybe the longest running, a phenomenal fund, but it really wasn't mainstream until we had an ETF. And I think that will be the tipping point. On real world use cases, if you look at like the Ethereum ecosystem, I actually think we surmounted one of the major hurdles over the last two years. I think what stopped the NFT boom and the DeFi boom was actually the rise in transaction costs as much as anything else. I think there was not enough throughput in that ecosystem to allow it to go mainstream. And I think the development of layer twos have allowed it. I think that's necessary, but not sufficient. So there's still additional barriers, there are regulatory barriers, there are design use case barriers, but I actually think that throughput question was the biggest one and we surmounted it. We just haven't seen the fruits of it because of these other steps that we need to take as well. Okay. So there's actually both of those answers, some things I want to dive into a little bit here. The first one is like this idea of it being gold. And I think in a way, I think maybe you can read from it slightly differently because Jan, you're talking, this is what its use case is, but there is still some evolution in a way that Bitcoin needs to go into. What I think is fascinating about that is like, okay, gold isn't going to evolve. It is just gold. It's in the ground, right? But there is this Bitcoin is code, but it's also a community. It's a living, breathing ecosystem of human beings, which makes it sort of unique. And so therefore, like, you know, how it evolves into being recognized for being the status. Is there an educational component to this, for example? Like, is it important that people kind of get in their heads? We can all use the digital gold analogy, but even getting there requires an understanding about why this actually does do that. Well, let me, this is Jan. I am going to pick a fight with you on the gold side because the use of gold as an investment has changed dramatically over the last 100 years. So even if you look at the history of our company, VanEck, the reason we started our first gold fund as a gold mining fund is it was illegal to own gold in 1968. So you see both Bitcoin and gold being affected not just sort of by securities regulation, but much bigger political, debates. even geopolitical But if you go back to before FDR, right, gold was the underpinning of central banks globally with the idea of trying to reduce currency volatility so that there would be more global trade and global wealth. But then they moved to basically away from the gold system. FDR did when he wanted to spend more money during World War II. Anyway, so, you know, gold has been in and out. And now more recently, central banks around the central banks because they don't trust the U .S. to hold their dollars anymore. Okay, so maybe that's a little historical quibble, but I do think that the role changes and I think it will change with Bitcoin going forward as well, just sticking to Bitcoin. It still sounds to me as if that is a discussion about the external factors, right, i .e., regulatory models, whatever, where governments stand. And all of that is maybe what the composition of what gold is and what a secure, uncorrelated investment needs to be is all contingent upon what is actually happening in that geopolitical circle. So in some respects, Matt, it gets back to your point about like, we're still sitting here waiting for the regulators to make a decision about an ETF or whatever. Yeah, I do think we are. I wanna hit one more thing on the gold thing and then I'll get to that because I think it's really important. There is this perception that gold has been the same for 5 ,000 years, completely wrong. Most people's perceptions about gold are untrue. We went off the gold standard in the early 1970s and people didn't know what gold was, right? They were figuring out what its role in the world was. Coincidentally, or maybe not coincidentally, that was the single best decade to be invested in gold. That was a phenomenal time. When stores of value move from uncertainty to established is when they accrue a lot of value. And that's what's happening in Bitcoin. I think there's some direct analogies to gold. I'd also add gold is a lot more volatile than people give it credit for. People think of it as this steady eddy. It has big swings up and down 20, 30 % a year. A store of value doesn't have to be day to day, unvolatile to be useful. It has to hold value or accrue value over long periods of time. And I think people discredit Bitcoin because they misunderstand gold a little bit. Just to add a comment on Bitcoin before we get off of that, gold shares, to your point, like Bitcoin miners fell 90 % from 2011 to their lows in 2016. I mean, you don't get worse than that, right, in terms of volatility. And that's a part of the ecosystem. It's not bullion, but still, I completely agree with you. So I just wanted to add that. I do think also, and I really want to push you, Matt, on this, that we have a global view of regulation of Bitcoin, right, because China has really taken its foot off the brake over the last year. And I think that's, you know, I call it the country the size of the United States. I think that's super important. Yeah, I think that's really important, too. I actually agree. And I think that's been going on for the last decade. It's sort of like a blanket that won't cover the whole world. And when somebody pulls it, then another government's like, oh, maybe we have an opportunity. I think that's what we saw in China with the U .S. being more restrictive, and then Hong Kong saying, well, what if we aggressively banked gold? Maybe there's an economic opportunity there. And I think it's sort of anti -fragile in that sense. Can I just punch down, maybe we're going to move to the technology side, but I just want to punch down on Bitcoin, because I think it, as an investment, is potentially relevant to everyone's portfolios here at this conference. I mean, you may not like, there are investors like Warren Buffett that will never invest in gold and would never invest in Bitcoin. But for a lot of people, the biggest risk out there, I would say, macro risk, is U .S. federal budget deficit. And I don't know of a better hedge than gold or Bitcoin. So maybe that risk doesn't come to fruition in our lifetimes, but it has got to be an alternative that people think of regardless of everything else in crypto. Yeah. Jan and I are going to keep going back and forth. I would add, it doesn't have to come to fruition for gold to be a good, for Bitcoin to be a good investment. It's an insurance against that potentiality. And if you're a wealthy individual, that's one of the biggest risks to your long term wealth and holding that insurance policy regardless of the outlook. Last thing I would add is we've come a long way. The other mistake people make when looking at Bitcoin regulation is like evaluating us today versus a year ago. If you evaluate us today versus 10 years ago, massive progress, even today versus five years ago. Look at the conversation in Congress today around crypto versus where it was two or three years ago. People need to relax a little, take the long view, and they'll probably have a better outlook for their long term investment.

Dan Bongino: The U.S. Government Is Using Aliens to Distract You
"Is about to go down. How do I know that? Daily Mail. Is the US government preparing to announce aliens? This is the Senate's proposed UFO controlled disclosure how it would work. Folks, I got a lot to talk about today, but I want to get to this first right away. Because I have two theories on this, okay? And the two theories are actually the same different origins, okay? The government uses the UFO thing to distract us when something ugly is going to happen. So I see this article in the Daily Mail and something's going down. Do I know what it is? I have no idea. I'm just telling you, something's going down. Because think about it. Oh, but Dan, no, there really are aliens. I don't care. I mean, I care, but I don't care for this, the distraction. Think about these two scenarios. If aliens do exist and the government's known about it for decades, why would they be releasing it now? The answer is because they want to distract you from something, correct? Everybody got it? Jim, is the audience on Buzzfeed? Does that make sense? If they've had them 50 years, why release it now? If the government does not have aliens and biologics, or whatever they call them, and they keep leaking that they're going to release the alien information even though they're lying, they're doing it to distract you.

Success Works Best When We Define It for Ourselves
"Hi everyone and you're very welcome back to another episode of Recipes for Success with me your host, Heather Thompson. Today's episode is a little bit different, this is a solo cast episode so it will just be me and I'll be talking about how we define success. So what you can expect from these solo episodes is I'll be kind of pulling on some of the fundamental elements of success and also very much from what I've talked about with my guests in terms of how they've defined success, elements that have helped them in their success, maybe barriers or challenges to it. So it's really just kind of giving you more language, more understanding, more awareness about how you can build your own personal success because that's the really important message that I hope you're getting from the conversation so far is that success works best when we define it for ourselves. So let's start there today, like what is success, how do we define it? Well I think there's a lot of very like traditional kind of conventional stereotypes of that. I think if I was to maybe name a few it would probably be being 10 like losing weight that's often seen as success, security, you know it's particularly in Ireland in previous eras you know the secure job, the teacher, the pension, the civil service, money and so basically like the more money the better it doesn't matter how you get that money or the impact that it has and status you know titles, certain professions are seen as being you know kind of better than others whether that's law or being a doctor so they're kind of like and they're all related I suppose to the norms of society like what success is seen like and how people know really what box to put you in so if you're of a certain status, you drive a certain car then I can make an assumption I suppose about the lifestyle that you lead. What I hope you're getting from the people that I'm talking to is that you don't need to just define success that way and not that there's anything inherently wrong with any of that if that's how you choose to live your life but the important part is that you are understanding what success looks like for you and you're not living by someone else's definition and that you're doing it very consciously and very intentionally so you want to be living your life basically like you don't want to be living someone else's so what else could success be? Well I think some of the themes that we've saw in season one, health, happiness, working less, healing journeys, gratitude, connection, the sort of lifestyle that you're having, more freedom, maybe you have a house by the sea, it's all about people kind of understanding like following their dreams right like it's about people kind of understanding what it is that they want and then going after that not just kind of doing what was expected of them, what they've maybe fell into, what they decided to do you know after school which I think when you think about it like making the decision at 18 or 19 that we think we need to live by for you know the 50 years that we need to work is a little bit mad so it's kind of it's funny why you were so scared to change when actually it's probably way more logical to think that of course over your working life what you enjoy doing and what gives you fulfillment and kind of normalizing the concept of having like a second or third career

He is a member of the infamous hip -hop trio Bone Thugs and Harmony, and of course everyone pretty much I would assume you probably know who Bone Thugs and Harmony is. They've been responsible for such hits as Crossroads, First of the Month. I mean, man, you know, if you are a 90s baby, you probably definitely have heard of Bone Thugs and Harmony, Crazy Bone, Busy Bone. I've actually seen them in concerts, so the guys were absolutely amazing on stage. I think I saw him at Chop Suey here in Seattle. But anyway, Crazy Bone is going through a medical emergency. It's not looking good. He is actually fighting for his life. According to sources, he checked himself into a Los Angeles hospital after he was coughing up a lot of blood. So he checks himself into a hospital, and obviously there's some type of bleeding going on with one of the arteries in his lungs, and doctors have been unsuccessful in stopping that bleeding. So they are attempting a second surgery after the first one was unsuccessful. So, they are attempting a second surgery to try to stop the bleeding, and he is on a ventilator. He is having to have assisted breathing, so it does not look good for Crazy Bone. Fifty years of age, just a bad situation. So we are praying for his recovery. I have not heard any updates, except the fact that they are performing a second surgery and the family is being very, very quiet about his medical condition. Obviously, the only ones that really know what's going on with Crazy Bone is probably family members at this point, but we are praying for a speedy recovery. Obviously, I think it's pronounced sarcoidosis, sarcoidosis. I think this is the disease, it's kind of like an inflammatory disease that attacks the lymph nodes, the lungs, the eyes, the brains, pretty much any organ in the body. For some people, they kick it. It's not a problem, but for some people, obviously, like anything, it can be very detrimental to their health. Bernie Mac, famous comedian, he passed away from sarcoidosis. So it's definitely something that can be fatal if not treated properly, if not caught early. We are praying for Crazy Bone, that he makes a speedy recovery. This obviously is very, very bad news. People like LeBron James, other celebrities are reaching out to extend their prayers. Definitely, we are asking that the audience members here on Convo Over Cigars pray for Crazy Bone, that he makes a speedy recovery after this medical emergency. You guys have been locked in to another edition of Convo Over Cigars on a Monday. I'm your host, Derrick Andre Flemming. It's a rainy one in Seattle. Everybody be blessed.

So I want to get your thoughts on something that I've certainly run into and I think a lot of runners have run into is when you do gain that confidence from running and having success at the sport, and then all of a sudden you get to a point where maybe you have a bad race or something like and then it kind of backfires and you are like, you know, your self -worth takes a hit. Like, how do you deal with that with your athletes and even yourself? You know, it's one of these things where I tell people if you always have moonbeams and glitter just shooting out of your ass, that means that you're probably living in fantasy land. Fantasy by definition is not reality, all right? I live in reality. There's peaks and valleys, ups and downs. We don't always have our best day. But we want life and we want our careers or whatever it is we're trying at, whatever it is we are endeavoring at. We want there to be an upward trajectory. Generally speaking, it's kind of like the stock market. I checked it. Today it's in the green on my iPhone, which means I'm not losing money today, right? But the stock market is going to have its peaks and it's going to have its valleys. But generally speaking, from the bottom left to the top right for the last 50 years, if you put $100 on the stock market, you're probably doing pretty well right now. So what we want is we want that trajectory, bottom left to the top right going up. But each little tiny dip and every little tiny bump in the road can't be some major issue that then suddenly clouds our vision for the future, clouds our picture that we have painted of ourselves, which hopefully is a good one. And it's one that is a strong one, one that's defined by self -worth, one that's defined by confidence. And so don't let one bad race or one not so good race or one not so bad workout be this major blow because we can't be overly invested in the moment when we have to be broadly invested in all that is life, in all that is our career. Be invested in the moment to the degree that you try to maximize your ability to get better on that day. But don't be so heavily invested in the moment that you have everything in that moment and you lose sight of the fact that what's a week, a month, a year, a decade down the line is truly sort of where we're heading. And so I tell people, hey, we all are going to have a bad race. We all are going to have a bad workout, but it doesn't define who you are as a runner and it doesn't define who you are as a person,
A highlight from BCB127_AMERICAN HODL: Wisdom For Surviving The Bear
"All of your well -laid plans are going to be put to rest by the Bitcoin market. You know, I was very confident we were going to over 100k, I think a lot of people were. Then we didn't. And then I was equally confident, I was like, well, if the top wasn't as high, then maybe the bottom won't be as low. And then I was like, probably 30k, the bottom would be like 30k. And then it was, it was faster to 16. And that really shook a lot of people out, man. I mean, it was brutal. I knew people personally who were getting faken. Most people were just totally inconsolable. They're addicted to their fear. Fear like gets real close to you and it talks in your ear and it convinces you that it's correct. You've got to just push past that and you just you can't give in to fear. This is the Blue Collar Bitcoin Podcast, a show where Average Joe firefighters explore the most important monetary technology of the 21st century. We talk Bitcoin, we talk finance and we talk shit. Ladies and gentlemen, this is it. This is what you have been patiently waiting for. The inevitable, our run in with the legendary American Hodl. We hate to tug him off so obviously, but he was built to hang out on our show. Hodl would be equally comfortable for an 8 a .m. coffee hour at the firehouse as he would be philosophizing with the likes of Breedlove. We hope we evoked both of those extremes. Hodl has been in this game for a long time. He is a proper Bitcoin OG. This gives him the rare perspective of having been in the midst of his third bear market. Even when you have three under your belt, they are not easy. We talk about everything from raising kids to overcoming your fear of being penniless and destitute because you put all your money in Bitcoin. Fear and greed run markets, and if you aren't careful, they can run your life. Understand your psychology. As Socrates said, to know thyself is the beginning of wisdom. We can't argue with Socrates, but we can say that the beginning of wisdom is getting your Bitcoin off of exchanges. The best way to make that happen is by grabbing yourself a cold card Mark 4 and punching your seed keys into a seed plate. We cannot impart how important this is. All of your research, all of your understanding, all of your effort to obtain Bitcoin means absolutely nothing if the exchange you left your Bitcoin on goes belly up and shits the bed. So get those coins off of exchanges and into the most reliable, most secure place possible, the cold card. And if you want to get frisky, check out the new Q1 and its expanded capabilities above and beyond the cold card Mark 4. Before we start, we have some coupon codes to share. If you would like to attend Bitcoin Amsterdam or Bitcoin 2024 in Nashville, get 10 % off tickets to either event with code BCB. Now, relax, enjoy this rip with American hodl. That's a stack of kids, my friend. Four in the litter. How are you holding up? This is only like a few weeks ago, right? It's it's good, man. I love having kids. Kids are the best. I I think parents like to complain about having kids, but like I do with the you know, it's like there's this George Peterson quote, which is like if you weren't going to have kids, like what the fuck would you be doing? That's so special. Like most of us are. Yeah. Yeah. It's not like I'm going to be inventing, you know, a new a new like equation for quantum field theory or something like I'm not doing any of that. So like, yeah, string theory is just a bit above our heads as well, you know? Right, exactly. So hanging out with the kids and, you know, playing Uno or goofing around is like, that's where I'm at. That's my song, right? The other thing you are, but I think of my kids just went back to school. So now I have like full days with nothing to do, but what I want to do. And you start to realize, like, what do people without kids in their thirties and forties do? There's just, oh, yeah, exactly. Yeah. You basically just get drunk in different locations. You're like, yeah, I went to Dublin and I got drunk and then I went to Istanbul and I got drunk and then I went to Rio de Ignar and I got drunk and you're like, okay, that's I didn't get drunk here. I got beer here, you know? Uh, yeah, people, people end up and I don't want to shit in the mouth of, of non parents here right off the bat, but fuck it. Let's do it. Everybody should have kids. It's well worth it. And I think at least based on my circle, most people I see that don't end up having children really, really wish they did. They get into their late thirties, forties and fifties and they realize, oh, I see what this whole thing's about. Um, highly recommend it. Get out there. Fuck everybody. Start fucking, start reproducing. Let's expand the species. Let's get more Bitcoiners. Yeah. Listen, if you don't have a, if you don't have kids, I consider you weak hands, you know, cause there's no one to get a huddle after your debt. So what you only got like max, you know, 40, 50 years of huddling there. All right. Like we need to extend that out. Seven generation thinking like my boy, Marty bent says, you know, I listened to you with, uh, the, your most recent chat with Peter and Peter was spending some time saying like, I love smart huddle. I like the glasses. I like the refined civilized huddle and Josh were like, Josh and I were like, fuck that shit. We want total huddle. If you don't deliver that today, you fucked up. Cause we need you fully unleashed my friend. All right. I mean, I'll do my best. Let's see what I got. Firehouse humor. Yeah. Oh yeah. I think you'd fit right into the firehouse based on some of the stuff I've heard you, uh, spew over the, over the years, I think you'd fit right in, especially coffee hour, eight o 'clock in the morning, just a bunch of degenerates. I don't know if you guys have seen the new Shane Gillis stand up on Netflix, but that's like my barometer for humor. Just like extremely immature playground humor, the way we used to talk to each other, you know, third grade. Yeah, exactly. Those are sort of litmus tests for like how far you can go culturally. You're like, Oh, we weren't allowed to say that 10 years ago. He just went that far in that, in that Netflix special. I guess that's the, that's the tip of the spear for how far we can go. Chappelle broke some boundary. A lot of people have broken boundaries on Netflix in the last, comedy in general has been regressive over the last 10 or 15 years. Like every, so many things have been taboo to say, especially for comedians, which really ruins comedians and only like Dave Chappelle can get away with it and a few others, but comedy has really been shit on in the last 10 years. I think the left went too far and they canceled basically too many people and you can't cancel everybody because then now you just have like half the country that's canceled. Right. And so, you know, all the canceled people, it's not like you killed them. Like they're still alive and they're just like, you know what? I don't give a shit about being canceled. And that's like where everybody's at nowadays. And so I am starting to see, like, I think the, you know, canceled culture has peaked and now we're on the other side of canceled culture. And there's a bunch, bunch of people who basically realize like, if you don't cancel yourself, nobody can really cancel you. You just, you just choose not to give a shit about it. I think it was actually Trump that taught everybody that maneuver. Right. Which is like, you know, whatever, I don't care, whatever you say about me, I don't give a fuck, you know, whatever. Uh, and you know, he's just going to, he's just going to keep going out there and calling you stormy horse face Daniels or whatever. He doesn't keep a shit. And you can be like, you know, you were the worst president ever. He'd be like, that's false. That was the best, best president. So you just don't let any of it get in there. You just go, no, he broke a ton of clown barriers. Trump did. He was masterful with the way he could do that. And if that guy had one characteristic that I admire, it's his ability to spin move out of any accusation by calling the other person, an ingenious nickname that stuck, like just nailed it every single time nickname ever. I think it was low energy Jeb. Who comes up with low energy Jeb. And then you would look at him and you'd be like, man, he is really low energy. Yeah, these things work a cup of coffee, you know, shortcut narratives are really effective. Speaking of presidents, you guys see Biden the other day and it was a yesterday in Vietnam. He literally got hooked off the stage because he started mumbling nonsense about something that was far off of what they were talking about. They turned his mic off while he was talking and he kept talking. And then they had an announcer get on and basically say, oh, you're done here, Mr. President, get, they got the hook out and they pulled him off stage. It was like, watch, watch this clip. Yeah, it was, it was insane. Shepherd came out. It was full blown, like, all right, get this fucking guy out of here before he makes us look even dumber. Unbelievable. You know, in a nation of 360 some odd million Americans, I think many of us are very intelligent. Uh, the last two presidents have been kind of, you know, not up to snuff, right? Like where are our good people, you know, like, yeah, we're not sending our best anymore, unfortunately. It is comical, but it's also downright embarrassing because, and I've heard enough out of you to know that you'll agree with this, I'm still very proud to be an American, I think there's a lot of wonderful things that this, this country stands for and imbues and, and it's done and it's, it's a downhill slope right now on both sides. And I just laugh at, I mean, obviously like most Bitcoiners and Josh and I are aligned on this, I just, both sides are in full blown, full frontal clown mode and, and anybody that's latching onto either candidate at this point, I almost lose respect for it. It's like, how can you take either of these guys seriously? But we need to dig out of that. Like that, that needs to be fixed to your point. That's not something that that's healthy for the average American citizen to just be resigned to the fact that the leader of the entire nation is a complete idiot, we need to dig out of that and hopefully reverse that trend. Well, you know, in general, I lean conservative usually, but I actually have been, uh, you know, found myself very intrigued by Robert F Kennedy Jr. And it's not just because he's a Bitcoiner, but I think he really has the discourse into the Overton window, right? Like by basically being like, why am I not, I'm a Democrat my whole life. My father was, you know, a president, a Senator, a presidential candidate. My uncle was killed. He was one of the most popular democratic presidents of all time. Why am I not allowed to say this? Why am I not allowed to have opinions or questions? And yet in America, I feel like anytime we lose our foundational principle, which is, you know, free speech, anytime we're losing that we're losing our soul as a almost anything you want without significant repercussions, that's, that's just how things are. Like, obviously if you say something that's very racist or hateful or homicidal or genocidal or something, then people are going to be, they're gonna have a lot of feelings about it, but there's very little speech. That's actually illegal speech, right? And we should be able to, yeah, just get together in a room and discuss things as Americans. That's a very rare thing. Like that's, that's not something that you find in almost any other culture on earth. You know, I was talking to Peter McCormick McCormick about this, but like the British sarcastic, dry humor that they're all known for that is because they don't have free speech. So they have to be sarcastic. That's never occurred to me before that either. Right. They have a shield to hide behind and they can be like, Oh, come on, mate. I was just taking the piss. Whereas we as Americans can just say what the fuck we actually think, which is a more effective system. They, they have to, I mean, I'm glad it happened because I love British humor. Yeah. They have to show a side boob. They can't go full frontal. You know what I mean? Exactly. Gentlemen. I'm sure you guys will both agree with this point as well. So we've got these clown puppet leaders that we're, we're just accosted with every four years and have to deal with the shit sandwich or the giant douche. And we've got to pick between the two of them. But then there's also like every time there's like, I mean, I'd say most times there's a new law, some new bullshit with COVID that happened in the last couple of years, I'm stunned by the stupidity and heavy handedness, which a lot of this stuff comes down. And it's like, it's like, I'm disappointed by how bad these takes can be and how bad these real changes are and how overbearing a lot of this has been, especially in the last few years. But it seems like every time a new law is, is instantiated, it's just feels wrong on its face. And I feel like people are so numbed to it at this point that they just say, they just expect it to be the wrong thing instead of what we would prefer to have. Or I think people from our circles would prefer to have at least. What are your thoughts on that? About how there's just like this numbness about how these people operate. Well, there's, you know, we're recording this on nine 11 and one of the reasons I wanted to record with you guys, cause you're both firefighters and I think not, you know, we're all around the same age. Nine 11 was the seminal moment of our young lives. And obviously like certainly had an effect on both of you, I'm sure. And I'd love to hear your stories about that. Um, but you know, to me, I'm, I'm, I have a good, I have a great memory. That's it's a gift and a curse. And one of the things that, uh, I remember is the world pre nine 11. I remember what it was like, and we're now living in an entirely different world. That's not better. It's a worst world. You know, we have an, a heightened security state, a heightened surveillance state. I mean, you used to be able to just, you know, what is TSA really accomplished? Like, did they prevent any new, uh, atrocities? I don't think they did because one guy tried to bomb a shoe bomber shoes, and now we are going to take off my, I got to take off my fucking band, slip -ons every time, you know what I mean? And your belt crying shame. Yeah. Yeah. Fucking shoe bomber. I mean, it is, it is like, we appreciate you bringing that up. It is, uh, in the fire service, it's, it's the day of the year. Um, and it, it's been said for a couple of decades now, never forget. But I feel like the fire service, Josh has done a pretty good job of not forgetting. Like you still see it on a lot of fire trucks. Every single firehouse around the country is honoring it today. There's a moment of silence that comes over dispatch. There's events that happen every year and yeah, I don't know. This is just a complete sidebar on nine 11, but it was fucking insane. Fucking insane. I was in sixth grade. I remember where I was as everyone does. Um, and wasn't fully able to appreciate the magnitude, but as the years have gone watching back in the documentaries and thinking through just like from our vantage point, um, I, Josh, we've talked about this before with our career. Like there is a degree of submission to risk. It doesn't happen very often. We don't want to overplay the hero card here. And the vast majority of our job where paramedics, we rotate ambulance to fire truck, but when this shit happens, it's real. And you've kind of sworn an oath to not have a choice, but to go into that, if that happens in your career, that second story bedroom to risk your life for a kid or whatever, all those men and women that went into that building, obviously hindsight's 2020, but if we worked in New York at that time and, and had the badge on, we would have had, we would have done the exact same thing. So, um, yeah, the heroism that existed by I agree, like to, to get, to get back off the nine 11 is just like, what, how has the world improved in any way, shape or form since then? And it has not in many ways, it's devolved in the opposite direction and we need new currents that flow the opposite way that, that get us back to a lot of American ideals, which is part of what we've latched onto the most about what you've said. And spoken into this community. Totally. We see, uh, so the Patriot act was instantiated right afterwards, which took away a whole, it added surveillance, took away a whole bunch of fundamental rights. And it was supposed to be sunsetted. I don't remember if it was five or 10 years after nine 11, but they extended it and they've continued to extend it since then. It's again, back to what we were just talking about. Like these, it's almost like a peg in, they get a foothold in and the politicians never relinquish any power whatsoever. It's always another step up. Another squeezing of, of the populace. They peg a shit coin into, into American ideals, kind of like potentially pegging shit coins into Bitcoin with drive chains. I don't know. Maybe we ended up today. Smooth transition there. I can't think of a worse way to honor all of the brave guys, you know, who ran into the towers when they were on fire. Then what we've done in the aftermath of nine 11, you know, I just can't think of a worse world. I saw it. I saw an Instagram post that actually made me pretty emotional. It was a, you know, young, pretty girl. She's probably in her like late twenties now. And she went to visit the Memorial cause her father was FDNY and he ran into the building. He ran into tower two and he collapsed on him and she grew up her whole life without her father. Right. And he made the ultimate sacrifice. And that's something that you guys have to, you know, that's an interesting conversation actually like around risk.
A highlight from Central Planning Myths with Daniel Harmon, Tuttle Twins - September 12th, 2023
"Hello, and welcome to the Cafe Bitcoin Podcast brought to you by Swan Bitcoin, the best way to buy and learn about Bitcoin. I'm your host, Alex Danson, and we're excited to announce that we're bringing the Cafe Bitcoin Conversations Twitter Spaces to you on this show, the Cafe Bitcoin Podcast, Monday through Friday every week. Join us as we speak to guests like Michael Saylor, Len Alden, Corey Clifston, Greg Foss, Tomer Strohle, and many others in the Bitcoin space. Also, be sure to hit that subscribe button.

Eastern every morning to become part of the conversation yourself. Thanks again. We look forward to bringing you the best Bitcoin content daily here on the Cafe Bitcoin Podcast. All right. All right. Good morning to all of you Cafe Bitcoiners. Morning, Jacob. Terence throwing you an invite. Good morning. You know, a while back, there was a video that got made with Tip and Z and the lyrics to that song got put on there, and it really helped because like for a while, you know, like when you listen to music, you kind of make up the words in your head if you don't know the exact, you know, lyrics. But once I read the lyrics to that song, and it's pretty interesting, if you know how to what the words are in that song and you're trying to talk to someone about Bitcoin, you literally can just recite that song to them, kind of. And it like totally flows like it makes you understand like Bitcoin in such a great way. I think if you like the lyrics in that song are very powerful, I guess is what I'm getting at. I have to agree. Morning, Peter. Good morning. All right, let's get rolling. Welcome to Cafe Bitcoin. This is episode 432. Our mission for this show is to provide the signal in a sea of noise, teach a whole bunch of people on this planet why there is hope because of this bright orange future that we call Bitcoin. We're gonna be kind of riffing today, getting various different newsy stuff. Later, we have the co -founder of Angel Studios, also the co -founder of Harmon Brothers and the creator executive producer at Tuttle Twins, Daniel Harmon. It's going to be joining us. Really looking forward to that. For those you don't know, Angel Studios, Tuttle Twins is like a cartoon series, and they teach a lot of incredibly adult concepts. I suspect that the kids that watch these shows have a better grasp on economics than a lot of the adults that are wandering around out there. Just my opinion. Morning, Mickey. Good morning, Dombay. Good morning. Yeah, in sort of that economics vein, I still meet like fully grown adults that think the dollar is backed by gold. Yeah, yeah, all the time, right? And it hasn't been that way since like, what, 50 years now? Come on, Alex, 1971. We all know this. Oh, for, yeah, 52 years at this point. It's crazy. Morning, Dombay. What's up, man? What up, y 'all? Just getting off the work grind. How's everyone doing this morning? Doing good. You're just getting off duty. Yeah, I was on for three days straight, but, you know, it was forgiving three days. Right on, right on. Are you, I don't know if you know this or not, I was curious, are you working the Pacific Bitcoin Conference? No, sir. I took that whole week off and I will be just around. I will be like free at the conference, in the conference, out of the conference. I'm going to really soak this one in for sure. Nice. Glad to hear it. Good morning, Rizzo. How are you doing, man? Thanks for joining us. Yo, good to have you back, sir. Thanks, man. It's good to be back. Good to be back. We're getting settled in, getting unpacked, all that jazz. Love the love being on the East Coast. Love it. It's a complete life. Why you gotta trigger me? Why you gotta do that? What? Why you gotta trigger me? It's early here. I don't sleep anymore. Sorry, bro. It's interesting. Hang around your buddy's ankle, dude. He's getting surgery here in a couple of days. about He lost a quarter inch of it, of the bone right above the ankle. It's kind of just gone. I assume if he's your buddy, he's orange -filled. But if not, I mean, that's a lot of good time to read and catch up on Bitcoin. Oh, man, he's a tough cookie. He's really proud of his entry into bonds last summer. Yowzers. And I showed him the Nakamoto portfolio, and he was like looking at it. And he was like, wow, OK, yeah. But you know, I mean, you can take a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. I mean, when the horse is thirsty, it'll drink on its own. And everybody gets Bitcoin at the price they deserve. And I used to hate that saying, but it's just really true. And it's because everybody, you know, people will purchase Bitcoin at whatever price it is when they have a need or necessity for one or many of its properties. And I don't know, you know, what do you do? It's that funny effect where it's not like Bitcoin's a new thing, right? We're in year, what, 14 now? Almost, what would you guys say if you had to guess, what is the percentage of human beings that have at least heard of Bitcoin at this point? 50 percent? More? I don't know what the number is. Do you guys have a guess? It's got to be pretty high. I think the we are early folks, sir. I think we're getting out of the early stage personally.
A highlight from Wim Wenders - Anselm & Perfect Days
"Wait. Are you gaming? On a Chromebook? Yeah. It's got a high -res 120Hz display, plus this killer RGB keyboard. And I can access thousands of games anytime, anywhere. Stop playing. What? Get out of here. Huh? Yeah. I want you to stop playing and get out of here so I can game on that Chromebook. Got it. Discover the Ultimate Cloud Gaming Machine. A new kind of Chromebook. Hi, everyone, and thank you for tuning in to the 506th episode of the Hollywood Reporters Awards Chatter Podcast. I'm the host, Scott Feinberg, and my guest today is one of the most significant filmmakers of the last 50 years. His credits include classic narrative films like 1984's Paris, Texas, which won the Cannes Film Festival's Palme d 'Or and brought him a Best Director BAFTA Award. And 1987's Wings of Desire, for which he won Cannes' Best Director Prize, as well as documentary films such as 1999's Buena Vista Social Club, 2011's Pina, and 2014's Salt of the Earth, each of which brought him Best Documentary Feature Oscar nominations. And now, at the age of 78, he is out with two new films, one a narrative, Neon's Perfect Days, the story of a Tokyo toilet cleaner, for which Koji Yakusho won the Best Actor Prize at this year's Cannes Film Festival, and the other a 3D doc, Janice Films' Anselm, about the art of the German painter and sculptor, Anselm Kiefer. The recipient of the Berlin International Film Festival's Honorary Golden Bear in 2015 and the Telluride Film Festival's Silver Medallion Award this year, he has been described by The Guardian as one of the key figures, along with Fassbender, Herzog, and Schlondorf, of the new German cinema movement that reinvigorated West German film in the 70s, and gave the country of Marlene Dietrich, UFA, and F .W. Murnau a bona fide cinematic movement to rival the Nouvelle Vague, by The New York Times as a film visionary and a great hero of art film audiences everywhere, and by Turner Classic Movies as one of his generation's most appreciated independent filmmakers, VIM Vendors. Over the course of our conversation at the Toronto offices of Elevation Pictures, the Canadian production and distribution company, the 78 -year -old and I discussed his circuitous path to filmmaking and the challenges of forging a career as a filmmaker in Germany back when he was starting out, what led him to America for a number of years and then back to Germany, why he moves between narrative and documentary films as often as any filmmaker except perhaps Martin Scorsese, and why he is particularly committed to making 3D docs, plus much more. And so without further ado, let's go to that conversation. Mr. Vendors, thank you so much for doing this. Great to have you on the podcast. And to begin with, just for anyone who may be living under Iraq and doesn't know, can you share where you were born and raised and what your folks did for a living? So I'm Wim Vendors and I was born in Germany right after the Second World War in August 1945, in a fateful week for the Japanese people. Grew up in post -war Germany, wanted to become a painter. First studied philosophy and medicine but then really drew up the courage to go fully for painting and cocky as I was, I went to Paris thinking that's where you become a painter and instead of becoming a painter in Paris, I became a filmmaker because I discovered the Cinematheque and that you can see the entire movies of the entire world and every screening was for 25 cents, so I saw about a thousand movies in the course of a year and after that it was decided. It wasn't painting, it was movies. Right. Now just to go backwards for a moment though, you've spoken about sort of this sense of growing up in Germany after the war, there were a lot of secrets, a lot of darkness, unanswered questions and you've talked about your parents having, I guess, photos that really kind of maybe opened your mind to the world beyond where you were from. Can you talk about that? Well, when I was a little boy and I started school, the growing up world was very, very busy, reconstructing the country and looking forward to the future and it was all positive and beautiful and you realize even as a boy there's something wrong. Why isn't the past ever a subject and why does nobody look over their shoulders? And eventually you realize all that building and all that effort to rebuild the future was in order to, as fast as possible, forget about the past. And when I saw pictures from the past, also family pictures, there were all these uniforms and, I mean, my father was a doctor in the Second World War and as soon as he finished his studies, they threw him to the front and he was a surgeon and for four years he didn't do anything but put people back together.
A highlight from The wireless & Wi-Fi 2-way radio communication for B2B needs to match user requirements for the best end users experience, PRYME and Cardinal Wireless Podcast
"Hello, this is Don Witt with the channel daily news from telecom reseller. And today we're speaking with Dave George. He is the president chief technologist with prime radio. We're also speaking with Frank Swindler. He is the technical director at Cardinal wireless. How are both of you doing today? Great. Thank you, Don. Great here in Indianapolis. Thank you. Let's start with Dave. Can you give our listeners a little overview of prime radio? Yeah, I'd be happy to Don. So prime radio has been around for almost three decades now and was started out by the owner of the company, you know, to develop accessories for the communications industry. And we do that to this day. We don't make the communications devices themselves, but we make a lot of enabling accessories like microphones and speakers and headsets and that kind of stuff. And lately in the last few years, of course, we're starting to merge into the cell phone or smart phone market as well. So kind of has similar requirements. Frank, can you give our listeners a little overview of Cardinal wireless? Sure, Don. We started around late 1980 as a small two -way radio dealership. And since we have grown into a well -established communication supplier here in the Midwest area, carrying a number of name brands. And we try to bring a simplified wireless for work approach to and specialize in providing efficient and cost -effective services with the highest quality of digital or analog radios we have available for the customer. The idea is to help the customer and consistently deliver the quality and professional type expertise of that they have all come to expect. Getting started with our discussions today, how have the B2B communications technologies changed over the past, say, 10 to 20 years for both of your expertises? Would you like to start off? Yeah, sure. I'd be happy to start off. So as Frank was saying, and ironically, Frank and I worked together in the early 80s. So we kind of know each other a little bit. And I used to live in Indianapolis back in those days. So we kind of have a similar background. I've been in the radio communications business my entire career. So coming up on like 50 years now. And I've only been here at the prime for the last 15 or so. So until I came here, I always worked for two -way radio manufacturers. So it's been pretty interesting from my perspective to see the evolution of the technology and its applications and its hardwares over those years. As I said, when I graduated with my engineering degree, I learned about tubes. And I've not seen any of those for a long time. So what's interesting these days, and I'm sure Frank will have more detail on this, is that the fundamentals regarding the need of communications have not really changed. But the hardware has evolved quite a bit. First of all, the purchase prices have dropped significantly, making it a lot more available to more people. And secondly, there's been a lot more enhancements added to the equipment over the years. So the equipment becomes a little more useful to the B2B customer than simply voice communications. So that's been pretty interesting to see that evolution. But it's not unlike what we've seen with other types of technologies like computers and things. What do you think, Frank? You know, I have to agree with what Dave said. That one of the three or four things I can think of, like Dave was mentioning, is the availability of products from manufacturers has opened the door for us to be able to supply equipment to our customers that will communicate in formats that might be proprietary to a particular vendor up until the advent of these available products.
A highlight from FULL INTERVIEW - Dr. Ashley Lucas, Founder of PHD Weight Loss & Nutrition
"Have you noticed we started calling our call -in line, the PHD weight loss and nutrition line? That was from me because I'm so committed to telling everybody who hears my voice that you can say goodbye to the unwanted pounds that you've been carrying forever. I mean I've I've fought weight for my whole life. And then my friends Joey and Peg Hudson in South Carolina started raving about something called PHD weight loss and nutrition. And I want to take just a couple of moments to bring back to the show one of my favorite people in the world. Smartest, one of the smartest people I've ever met. And she has quite a life story. Former professional dancer. There's a lot of demands on professional ballet dancers and ballerinas and what their body has to look like. And Dr. Ashley Lucas put together years of education in nutrition and metabolism to come up with PHD weight loss and nutrition. And I gotta brag on it some more. Dr. Ashley, welcome back to the show. I see you're in the Dr. Ashley show studios. Your YouTube channel, the Dr. Ashley show is doing great I hear. It is. It's been so much fun. I've helped with the YouTube channel and now we are pulling that into a podcast template forum so that people can hear it while they're driving or wherever they might. You know, Dr. Ashley, when I talk about PHD weight losses taking the country by storm, it's true. We're going to Israel this fall and there's a bunch of people from the upstate of South Carolina who are going. I think there's 15 or 16 people just from the upstate who are going to go on the Prager Gallagher trip. Of that group, four of them just began PHD. It's so neat to hear people who are enthusiastic. I meet people everywhere I go. Last event I had in San Diego, a guy walks up to me and he says, Mike, thanks to you and PHD weight loss and nutrition. I lost 67 pounds and the guy looked great. He was about a 50 year old man. He looked absolutely fit. It's amazing. The beauty of PHD and that's why I can't brag on this program enough and I want to keep talking with you as much as you're willing to come on the show. First of all, you're not hungry so there's not a severe caloric restriction and you don't go through crazy exercise routines. I know people who literally wipe themselves out trying to exercise their way into significant weight loss and that doesn't really work, does it? No, it doesn't. We've talked about this a lot on this show, but the body is much more complicated than calories in and calories out and really what we want to do is target the belly fat. The belly fat, those fat cells that are in your belly secrete these hormones and there are these hormones that cause inflammation in the body, which results in joint pain and skin irritation and type two diabetes and cardiovascular disease. All of these negative health consequences and these fat cells also make you crave and make you hungry and weight gain really isn't your fault. It has nothing to do with you. It's all dependent upon this hormonal situation that's occurring in the belly fat and so when you think about dropping weight and exercise and calories really and what we want to do is we want to target a way to change the metabolism so that your body is fat. And so through that, when we look at the type of exercise that create impact, it's really not that chronic cardio, the type of exercise where you get on the elliptical machine and you just keep going and going and try to burn as many calories as possible. When you're looking at exercise, it's really about the functional way that the movement is working in the body and how it's tackling the fat cells specifically. So we want to focus on lifting something heavy resistance training, not enough to cause any type of injury, but enough where it really gets the body burning fat. So lifting something heavy, whatever that means to you and then some kind of intensity interval training and this doesn't have to be lengthy. It doesn't have to be anything too strenuous for sure. Dr. Ashley Lucas, the founder of PHD Weight Loss and Nutrition is joining us from the Dr. Ashley Studios. You're not going to want to miss her podcast, her YouTube channel. You can find everything by going to drashleyshow .com. Dr. Ashley show .com and I want to do something. I'm going to throw you a little bit of a curveball Dr. Ashley, but I know you can take it. I get questions all the time about my journey on PHD Weight Loss. I want to open up our phone lines to anybody who has a question for you or me about the program. So 800 -655 -MIKE because after all it is now the PHD Weight Loss and Nutrition phone line. Thank you very much. So we need to brand it properly and I want to roll out the official naming rights that you now have on our call -in line by inviting people to use the PHD Weight Loss and Nutrition line with any question you might have about the PHD program, what it means, what it takes.

"You couldn't pay me a million dollars a year to do his job, Mike. Why? If I'm not getting shot at or assaulted, if I actually do my job, there's a potential that I lose my job and get arrested. Why would you want to do that job? And then we wonder why we have less police officers. Welcome to another Financial Guys podcast. I'm Mike Hayflick, along with Mike Speraza. Mike, back after a beautiful Labor Day weekend. Yeah. It seems like the summer finally turned into summer here in the last week of the, uh, you know, no school times because it's been weird all summer, rain, warm, cold, windy. And then this weekend was pretty much perfect from Friday on. Beautiful. Yeah. I mean, I'm thinking middle of August to like middle of October that might be the best weather maybe in the country. I mean, it's calm. It's like 55, 60 at night, 75, maybe even 80. It's gorgeous. I don't know why more people don't come here in the summertime because it's really a great place to be. I do feel bad for kids though, because they're going back to school and 90 degrees schools and that's never fun. Yeah. The heat wave comes at the worst time. Yeah. Feel for those kids. 90 degrees in a school with no air conditioning is not fun. I remember. Well, they're just going to have to suck it up. I remember walking to school and like three foot snow uphill, both ways, six miles, eight miles home. I mean, I don't know how that could happen, right? Yeah. But they'll remember, but in the wintertime when it's not 90, they will, well, I'll be going, ah, we wish it was hot and humid again. That's right. So, um, so football season is upon us, Mike, um, massive upsets in college football already. Um, Colorado led by Deion Sanders and his son at QB, um, upsets Texas Christian university, TCU, a ranked team. And then last night, Duke, Duke, who's known for basketball, right? Yep. They ended up beating Clemson of all teams. Um, so are you into college football too? I am. I'm actually all in on the Deion Sanders train right now, too. I love what he's done with that program. I love his, his fire. He's never scared of anything. Uh, I love that. That was, that game was a lot of fun. I don't know if you watched that live, Mike, that was, um, back and forth. I think 80 points were scored in the game. It was wild kick returns, interceptions, touchdowns. I mean, you name it. They had it in that game. It was awesome. What's cool. I think, and I'm not saying like, you know, losing sucks, but some teams have lost for so long. And then to see a coach, the Clemson coach with his head down and he's just, he's shocked. That his team can possibly lose that his team could possibly be throwing picks. And, and, you know, at the very key moments in the game, like I like that because then it shows other losing teams, like with, you know, the history of losing that, yes, if you just work your ass off, you know, come together, get the chemistry, get a leader like a Deion Sanders to come in and say, I believe in you. Don't let anyone in the news tell you otherwise. I love that. Well, that's why I like him. And, you know, to bring it to politics, like it's, it's, it's, it's the Trump model, right? Of just I'm going to tell you how I feel and I'm going to, I'm going to prove what I say. And it's fun, right? I mean, you, you need, there's going to be a lot of people that hate him out there. I'm not one of them. I think he's awesome. But he's got that the bravado, right? Like I'm not scared of anything. I'm going to tell you how I feel. And you're right, Mike, we're going to go from zero to a hundred and it's going to take us five minutes instead of taking us 50 years. And he did that, right? I mean, not to say they're going to win a national championship this year, but they're going to compete every week, right? And this is a program that has stunk for the better part of two to three decades, right? So they're going to be, they're going to be pretty good. We're going to be fun to watch. And it's going to be fun to see the show of Deion Sanders. Cause I love it. And his son is a stud too, by the way, his quarterback son is a stud. All right. Now how about your grand Island Vikings? Yeah. Yeah. 35 nothing win on Friday. So that's a good start to the season. Nice. Very good. We'll see. We'll see what happens here. North Tonawanda coming up this week, but, beat up Newport 35 -0 last Friday night or this Friday night, I should say a couple of days ago.
A highlight from Ep370: How Often Should You Release Episodes In A Week?
"You've got to put out a little bit more. You've got to give them that content. You've got to be the squeaky wheel that is going to get the grease. You've got to constantly be in front of them, adding value to them, or they're going to go and find somebody who does. Most hosts never achieve 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. What's up, podcaster? It's your host, Adam A. Adams. And in this episode, we are discussing how many episodes should you be publishing each week or each month. And I think it's a great question. I think that there's a lot of people that come to me and they want me to help them. They want me to support them by growing their podcast. And I ask them, how many episodes are publishing? And they tell me that it's, oh, we're really consistent every single month. I go, okay, how many in the month though? And they're like one every month. And there's others that come to me and they say, they go every other week, we want to make sure we are keeping this consistent. And here I'm about to share with you how often you should publish and why. Some of the pros, some of the cons. If you're publishing multiple times a week, are you going to just bother people leave you? Are they going to ignore you? Are they going to hang up on you? Are they going to be like, I can't even listen to that many. I can't listen to this guy or this gal every single day. I'm out. Are they going to say that? So let's dive in and understand this. Well, I want to start with a story. I want to start with a personal story. This is the podcast on podcasting. And when I launched the podcast, I launched it with six episodes right away. That is actually a course for launching a top rated podcast and actually launching with multiple episodes is one of the tricks for that. So we start with six and then I think I was doing two or four a week and I ramped it up to six a week. And as soon as I started doing six episodes a week and for your information, that is three solo episodes like this one right now and three interview episodes. So I would interview people every Wednesday and I would try to do five or six interviews almost every Wednesday. And then I would kind of scramble because it's not always easy for me to be honest. It's not always easy for me to record my solo episodes because I don't really have anyone to be accountable to except myself. And I like to give myself grace. So if you're like me, it might get tough to do three solos a week and all of those others. Plus, I'm an advocate for recording before you need to produce. And what does that mean? That means whatever amount that you are publishing each week, I want you to record more than that. Most likely by batching them. Batching them means like, for example, I'm going to record five or six episodes all right now. And that'll get me through a few weeks, right? Now, going back to the history of start off with a six, then I did two or four and I ramped it up to six a week. I needed to ramp it up because I had so much content available because I always wanted to record ahead of time. And I had this giant bank account. Think of finances. What does everybody tell you? You should have six months in the bank. You should have a year in the bank. Some people might say you need six weeks in the bank. I would say for podcasting, six weeks is kind of the minimum. What that means is you want to have recorded and get them starting to be edited and ready to publish, scheduled to publish all the artwork for promotion, ready to go. All the copy for promotion, ready to go six weeks ahead of time. Now you're allowed to get COVID, which both of my kids have COVID today. And I hope I don't get it. And that's one of the reasons why I'm recording five or six episodes right now is because I might not be able to talk for a week just to make sure that I get it done sooner than later. So this bank account means the recorded basically published, they're queued into your platform already and they're scheduled. The timer is ready to go. At that time, they automatically go. Now you're allowed to get COVID. Yeah. You're allowed to go on vacation. You're allowed to take Christmas off, Thanksgiving off or whatever holidays you may or may not celebrate. You can do all that. You can relax. You can take the summer off if you need to, if you've got a bank account of all of these episodes. So now that you kind of see, no matter what number it is, if it's one a week, whether it's one a month, you need to record them well in advance, get them edited and scheduled to publish so that you're never behind the eight ball. You're always ahead of the game. Again, you're never behind the eight ball. You're never having that, oh shit moment. You're always ahead of the game. You're always one step ahead. You've got that bank account, your bank of episodes ready to go. And now we can talk about how many episodes you should publish. When going into my history, I did six for a while. And when I was publishing six, it was a little hard. It was a little much. It was doable. I did it for a long, long time. And I built up my company through the podcast because of doing that. And as I was ramping this up, and I'm going to give you some real numbers. And right now the company brings in about $45 ,000 a month. And we can attribute most of that through the podcast, almost all of it directly through the podcast. And then most of the rest of it from referrals. And again, because of the podcast. So somebody who's listening, maybe you hired us and then you told your friend and they hired us too. And because of the podcast, right now we're making around $45 ,000 a month. Here's the thing. Don't share too much because I've been doing two episodes a week. Listen carefully. This is important. I've been doing two episodes for a week now for quite a while, probably since the beginning of this year, which was eight or nine months ago. So what am I saying to you? I'm saying that I made a shit ton more money back then when we were bringing in six figures a month. We were bringing in six figures a month. We had to make between 90 and 120 every single month. We averaged around a hundred grand almost to the penny each month. We were on cue to make a million dollars, right? Not to make it and it's all in Adam's pocket, but to gross it, to gross that number. And if you've business, you could do that too. So here's the thing. I got to a place where I slowed down those episodes. So I was doing six a week and we were making six figures. I slowed it down to two a week and we went all the way down to $45 ,000. It would be bad if it was $45 ,000. I wouldn't be able to pay anything. I've got too many employees. So right now we've been losing money for a few months. My company has actually been losing money for a few months. And I'm like, why? I'm taking it back to the basics. It's because we've been doing two episodes a week instead of six episodes a week. And now it sounds crazy, but I'm going to give you some of the reasons so that you understand it a little bit better. I'm going to give you some of the reasons behind this. So before I do that, I'll let you know I'm making a change right now. I'm making a change immediately. We're switching from two a week to four a week right now. And we might go to the six. I'm not sure if we're going to go to the six automatically because we don't have a big enough bank account. We don't have enough episodes already recorded, prerecorded. Because if you have been with me for a little bit, you remember back a few episodes ago where I mentioned that, hey, we ran out of episodes. And so I had to start asking friends to get their best guests so that I could start doing more interviews so that we'd be ready and set. So we've got enough of those that we're able to go to four a week instead of two a week. And I'm fully expecting to go from 45 ,000 a month to closer to 80 ,000 a month just by doing that one thing. Can you imagine? I'm kicking myself. I'm not that flexible. I'm flexible -ish, but not that flexible. I'm kicking myself in the ass right now because it's like just doing two more episodes for me, going from two to four, should be bringing in an extra $35 ,000, maybe even $40 ,000 a month. It should be able to. And that's really the only thing I have to change. That's really the only thing you have to change. Right now, you might be at one a week or every other week. Can you imagine what would happen if you boosted that up? So now let's get into the reasons and the science behind why this works. I was speaking at a conference a long, long time ago. Man, I'm surprised it was in 2018. So this is like five or six years ago and not to date myself, but yeah, this was many years ago. So I was speaking on a stage and a guy named Joe Fairless runs the event. And it was actually, I was backstage, not yet speaking. I had to follow Joe. I was the person who went after Joe and the person who runs the whole thing. And he's great speaker. He's very, very knowledgeable. And also he's very funny because he was a comedian for a while. He went and took comedian classes in New York and actually got on stages for that. So he's very personable. He's very honest. He's very open. He's very educated, very smart, very wise and easy. He easily breaks things down in a way that others can also understand it. And this lady at the end of his presentation, it goes to Q &A. And one of the first questions, like the third question is this lady on the front row, all the way stage right. So on the left side and I could see her because I was on stage left on the right side. So I'm looking and I can only see like 20 of the people that are sitting down out of the 600 or 650. And so I can only see a couple of them. So it was nice. I saw her raising her hand for a while and he finally picked on her. That sounds like you're in grade school and he's pulling her pony towels or calling her names. He picked her, he selected her and he said, what's your question? And she said, Joe, if you had to do all of this, your podcast all over again, because he was suggesting others in the, actually I forgot to mention this. He was telling his audience that they should start podcasts. The woman, she goes, Joe, if you had to start it all over again, would you still do a daily podcast? And Joe didn't even really have to think. He just said, no, I wouldn't do a daily podcast. And I thought it was interesting how he phrased it because you would expect him to say some smaller number. Like I wouldn't do it daily. I would go to one a week, or I wouldn't do it daily. I would go to three a week. Nobody knew what he was going to say next. And then he said it and it surprised the entire audience. He said, I would do a twice daily podcast. The reasons why he would do it twice daily from seven days a week, seven episodes per week to 14 episodes per week. It sounded crazy, almost like blasphemy. Like, why would you put yourself through that hell, Joe? So he goes on to say that the conversations that he's had with other real estate entrepreneurs in his field, the conversations that he's had have brought people closer to him, closer to his business. He's been able to do joint venture deals with people. He's been able to find more deals because of it. He's been able to grow his network much faster because he's having that many conversations with other people. And he says that you're more likely to get your episodes shared with other people. And simply you also have just more shareable content and you have more guests that would be willing to maybe share the episode that they were on. So with these conversations, with constantly being in front of people, which is my next point, he's always in front of people. Think of when you publish an episode, think of it as finding a way to finally get back to the first page of Google. But then tomorrow you're on the second page of Google. Then the next day you're on the third page and then the next thing you're on the fourth page. People are not going to find you when you're on the second and third and also fourth, fifth and sixth and seventh page. They're not going to find you. If you're going every other week, they're not going to find you for two weeks. They're going fill their time with something or someone else. I have a friend and she's a great person, awesome, awesome person. And I'm not contoning or condemning her right now. I am just saying that her husband was working a lot of hours and she went out on the side. She went hooked up with some other man a couple of times, and then she felt bad about it. And she told her husband, and then he changed his work schedule so they could start getting back together. And she wouldn't have the need or she wouldn't feel the need to go outside the marriage. Think about this with you and your listener, having an intimate relationship. You've got to put out. I know that's crass. I'm not trying to offend you. You've got to put out. You have to give and take. You have to be there for them in many ways. Maybe when you've been married for 30, 40, 50 years, it's different. But when you're young, in your 20s and your 30s, and probably even in your 40s, that part of the intimacy is really, really important. And not just the sexual part, but now we're also talking to the emotional part of intimacy and sharing and having a dialogue with somebody who cares and gets you. And you don't want your listener to go outside of your podcast marriage. And so you got to put out a little bit more. You got to give them that content. You got to be the squeaky wheel that is going to get the grease. You've got to constantly be in front of them, adding value to them, or they're going to go and find somebody who does. This takes me back to this show that I'm going to finally put back up soon. Maybe I'll even get off of these podcast episode recordings today, and then I'll go straight over to Netflix and I'll re -add this show because it left me for a long time because it wasn't putting out and I had needs. And so I went and found another show. It's called Ozark Badass Show. We get to season four after COVID for a little while, and we finally publish the next season. I'm so freaking excited. I start it the same week that it comes out. I was anticipating it. I was searching for that stuff on the search engines and it published and I start watching it and half the season came and then it ended. And I was like, are you serious? So what did I do? Did I sit there on my thumbs and not watch any other show? No, I went and found myself another show. My show wasn't putting out, so I had to go and get my needs fulfilled elsewhere. So I went and found another show and got excited about it. And I was in love with it. And we went to the grand finale and then I found another show and went all the way through and I found another show. And going back to Ozark, it's been years. It's actually almost two years since they republished this second half of season four. And I still haven't listened to it. It's not because I'm not excited about it or don't love it. It's because I am getting distracted by those other movies or shows that I started watching. And so think of it like this. If you're on the sixth page of Google or if you're on the third page of Google where it's hard to find people, this is really what I'm talking about, the first page of Apple podcast. When you publish an episode, you're at the top front and center, upper left, right there where people are going to see you. And then when the other people that they're subscribed to, because most people are subscribed to 30 shows, most people are subscribed to 30 shows. I know I'm subscribed to way more, but let's average it out. A lot of people are subscribed to two or three or six, and a ton of people are subscribed to 20 or 30, 40. And then I am subscribed to way, way more. So it's hard for me to see it unless they just published because it pushes and pushes and pushes that down out of the way. It's no longer in my view, out of sight, out of mind. It's not that I wouldn't want to watch it if it was there in front of me and available, but it's not available. I don't see it. It's not there. Another podcast is there and it's going to catch my attention and I'm going to go outside the marriage podcast wise, and I'm going to click on that other podcast. Even if I committed to this other one, I can't find it, but I can find this one today. So I'm going to watch it. So the point is Joe Fairless, when I was speaking at his conference, he was on stage, that woman raised her hand and said, would you still do seven a week? It seems crazy. And he said, no, I wouldn't do seven. I would do 14. I'm already the longest running real estate podcast, daily real estate podcast in the world. How can I change it now? I wish I could, but how can I change it now? So luckily for me, I don't have a claim to being the longest running twice a week show. So I'm going to four a week right now, and I'm going to work to get my bank account full and I'm going to go to six a week. And here's why. It only takes me about two hours a week to make an extra $35 ,000 a month. It only takes me an extra two hours of work to make an extra $35 ,000 in my bank account. That's why I'm increasing it. So I want you to consider going from the one every other week to at least one a week, or trying to go from the one longer one a week to maybe a long one and a short one in that week. Just double it. Maybe you can go from the $6 ,000 you're making through your podcast each month, and maybe you can double that easily to 10 or 12 or $13 ,000 that you can contribute, or is it contribute or attribute? I said the wrong word. That you can attribute directly to the podcast. So I want to challenge you and encourage you to increase it. Increase it to the highest number that you believe you can sustain. If that's one a week, awesome. If you can go to two or three or four a week, like I'm doing right now, awesome. If you can go to six and you do it before me, I will give you mad respect and mad props. Furthermore, when you start making more money through your podcast, because you follow through this challenge, as soon as you start making that additional money, I want you to call me. I want you to send me an email, call me, get a hold of me and say, Adam, it's working. And then I'm going to say, come on the show. Let others know about how this gave you success by just following through this one thing. So be committed to following through with that. Now we get some more of the science and numbers, and I gave you a lot details because Joe is the one who taught those details. You're in front of more people. You have more shareable content. You're more likely to get it shared by the guest. You're having better conversation with more people. You're growing your network and you're more likely to get more business. So why is that? And here's another analogy. You are driving down the street and you're looking for a gas station and your GPS says there is a gas station five miles to the north. The closest gas station, your GPS says, is five miles to the north. And so you turn on that road and you start going north and you're following the GPS. And about five, six minutes later, you see not just that gas station, but you also see three other gas stations because for some reason there's a gas station on every single corner there. So think of it like this. I want you to understand that when there's one gas station on a corner, when there's one gas station there, this is talking about number of episodes, that gas station owner barely scrapes by. Think of it like the podcaster who has one episode a week and they're barely scraping by. You go to a corner where there's two gas stations. Both of those gas stations are doing okay. It's weird because if you're the only gas station on the corner, you barely make money. You're breaking even. You're struggling just to pay yourself when you have one gas station or one episode a week. But when there comes in a gas station across the street, what you would think is the people that are coming to you, half of them are going to go to that other place and that you were going to lose business because you had a closed minded mindset. And it was a small mindset that believed that if somebody goes across the street, they're going to take half of your people. But what really happens, what really actually starts happening is both gas stations do better than either one could if they were by themselves. Both of your episodes will get more downloads per each episode, not the same amount per episode, and certainly not less or fewer downloads per episode, but actually both episodes will get more because you have more shareable content, more people that you're connecting with, more people that might share your content with somebody else. And you're on the first page of Google or the first page of Apple podcasts more often since you're publishing every Monday and Friday or whatever the days are. You've got all of these benefits. And so you start making more money, just like those gas stations. And when there's a third gas station, they are all making bank. And when there's four gas stations, they are all making so much money, they don't even know what to do with it. So this is why you find that when there's a gas station or a fast food restaurant, for example, when there's a McDonald's and then they put a Burger King and a Wendy's and Taco Bell all in the same area, all of those restaurants make more money than if there was less. When you start having three episodes a week, four episodes a week, five or six episodes a week, you start getting more downloads per episode. And my mom is a great example of this. I think she started out wanting to do less and she's doing pretty sure it's three episodes a week and she's getting great traction. We just launched with her just a couple of months ago. And she already told me the other day that she had like 20 ,000 downloads. And I go and look at the average podcast that is out there and I look and see what happens after one full year or sometimes two years, it takes them to get five to 10 ,000 downloads. And that's because they are doing one episode a week or every other week. And then my mom comes around and she's not sure if she can do more than one. She's not sure if she wants to spend the time. But when we have tough love, because we're family, I'm like slap her in the face. Not literally. As a mom, you got to do more. You got to do more. You got to do more. So she picks something like three. And all of a sudden she's got 20 ,000 downloads in the first few months when these other people in two years can't even get 5 ,000 or 10 ,000 downloads. There's a huge difference. It makes a big, big difference. So wrapping up today's episode, how many episodes per week or per month should you do? And the answer is as many as you possibly can, but at least, at least, at least one a week. You shouldn't even have a podcast. You can't do one a week consistently. And I want to challenge you. If you've already got your show, if your show's already up and running right now, double the production. Go from two to four, go from one to two, go from three to six. Double the promotion. And I think you're going to see that you're pretty close to double your gross income, the gross revenue for your company as well. 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 web page 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.

"And then China, Taiwan, and, you know, they're classified as developing still. But for many practical purposes, they've, at least, you know, they pretty much reach developed status in many ways. And so they've been able to kind of climb that ladder. Also, Singapore was able to do it. So there's been these handful of Asian countries that have been able to do it. But when you look at how many countries there are out there, it's shockingly small percentage of the number of countries that able to climb that ladder in the past 50 years, especially if you say, okay, let's take away oil, let's say you don't you don't find just this massive treasure trove of oil in your country, or something like that. The percentage that have climbed that ladder is strikingly small. And I think El Salvador is taking some of the initial steps that would make that possible.

A highlight from Self-Defense Laws and Online Radicalization
"I believe they want to save the environment. The fact of the matter is none of the results of everything they do doesn't help the environment. Like you said, that guy just donated all these money to environmental causes. That money is going to go so these people can strap themselves to something on a highway instead of planting trees. All righty, welcome back. Mike Lomas, Go Legal Financial guys. I should have asked you. I guess I'm hosting. I just opened my mouth. Not that there's like a host here because we don't take commercial breaks, but we are the financial guys. It's a place where money meets politics and thanks for tuning in to a... I love these podcasts, by the way, between morning mics, podcasts, and radio shows. We're doing what we love to do, which is really cool. And I love the 45 minutes and out, 40 minutes and out, no commercial breaks. It's pretty good. It's nice. So I don't know where to start. Western New York here. Glenn, you're down in our Florida office now, but we'll be back here shortly. I'm in our Western New York office. I'll be down to Florida shortly, so back and forth. But Florida is all about hurricane, hurricane, hurricane. I love these environmentalists. So they're like, oh, by the way, every hurricane is a once in a lifetime storm. It's like, okay, I think they go the last... This has never happened before. Well, coming into like the Gainesville area, well, actually it was 170 years ago. Now, hmm, what did we not have 170 years ago? Oh yeah, the freaking automobile, right? Like they want to blame all this on climate change, but it happened 170 years ago. Because it's hitting that part. It's now global warming. And it's so stupid, right? I remember when we were talking to Congressman Chris Collins on the air one time and we were talking about, he was talking about Marco Island, houses on Marco Island. Just bought there. He just bought a house there and he bought there because there was no way that anything, though, the hurricane had never, ever, ever... Because of the way that... Let me back you up for one second. No, no, no, no, no. Let me back you up for one second. As we were doing that, because you and I, we have offices down in Palm Beach, the storm was heading right for Palm Beach. And he said to us, he said, that's exactly why I bought a Marco Island. When I kid you not, we got off the air two hours later. The storm had gone south around the tip of Florida and back up in Marco Island. It literally did. It jogged left and it curled around and it came right back and whacked Marco Island and went right across Naples and right across Lake Okeechobee. I know God's got much bigger things to do than listen to the financial guys at a Saturday afternoon. However, however, it was sort of weird that at 301, as soon as we got off, that storm turned. Really, you guys, karma right there. But the point is that storms, they do whatever. They hit different parts. It's not because of global warming. It's just stupid. Honest to God, what a dumb statement to make. We've been warm, cold, ice ages. We've had hurricanes that have hit the panhandle, Louisiana, Texas, because it just hasn't hit that particular exact spot of the coastline. Are you out of your mind? It has. 170 years ago. That's what's funny about it. 170 years ago it did. So really it did. But not within the last, you know, not since 1974 when they started to keep statistics on it. It's just stupid. These people are lunatics. By the way, we were talking for the show, you know, Patagonia, the guy who created the clothing brand Dives, right, left almost all of his fortune to environmental groups. That and along with Hollywood are the people that are funding these whack jobs that are putting other people at risk. Let me ask you this, though. Everyone's seen this video by now, right? The tribal police, they literally, they take the truck. I love it. They just run over the thing. They clear the road. They arrest everybody. We're not in violence. We're not in violence. Here's the thing, though. Let me ask you this. These are, are these, are these all beta males in that line? Because I got to be honest, if I'm anywhere near visibility of the front, I'm probably going to walk up there after a while, I'm going to probably pull off the road and maybe take a walk or drive down the shoulder. If I can see what's going on and I realize there's a protest, I'm rallying like, you know, half dozen, dozen other rednecks in that line. How long would it take to walk down the cars and grab, you know, nine, 10 other, you know, guys and just say, okay, we're moving. And when they say they're nonviolent, well, you're, you're holding up a, you're holding up miles and miles of people in the desert, right? I mean, look at, I drove, I drove through the desert a few weeks ago. It was a hundred degrees. If that 110 actually during the day, if I'm stuck on that road and there's nothing else, by the way, I can't like turn my car off and just sit there without air. I've got two kids in the car, right? There's people that have animals, pets in the car, right? So you turn that car off, you don't get air conditioning, you die. If you run the car, you eventually run out of fuel. I mean, they are a real threat. They are a real danger and they may not be violent, but it doesn't mean they're not putting people at risk. I tell you how many people could die at 110 degrees. I tell you what, you can be as nonviolent as you want while I'm kicking your head in to get you off the road. I gotta be honest. In the middle of the desert, you blocked the road in the middle of the desert. I'm finding as many of the rednecks as possible and you're getting an ass whooping. I gotta be honest. You're getting out of the road. They needed that. I'll give you 10 seconds to get out of the road or you're getting an ass kicking. Fortunately, it was on tribal land as we were talking before because had it not been, you'll get some liberal piece of shit prosecutor that will now charge the police officer instead of saying thank you for saving the lives of all these people that could have burned to death in their cars. That's the game now, right? That's why George Soros funded all these, right? You remember those folks in St. Louis, the attorneys who protected their home with an AR -15 and a pistol. Now, I don't agree with the woman waving it around like a pointer. That was clearly... But she didn't have the proper skills to let it go. That was her property. You can wave the damn thing any way she wants. Get off her goddamn land. She had the right to defend it. Get off her land. Get off her land. And they prosecuted her. They went after her, right? So all these people in these states, if you're a non -friendly state like New York, you have to really think twice about defending yourself. Think about this. I know. Somebody breaks into your home at two o 'clock in the morning. Think about this for a second. You're by yourself in your home. You don't have your kids. You don't have your wife. You have nothing to worry about to protect. You have an opportunity to go out the back door and get out of your home. Now, however, in New York State, you have every right to defend your home. Is it worth it? I mean, think about that for a second. I'm going to stop and think about that when I'm in New York now. Do I just leave the... I'm going to leave the house and let my guest just break into my home because otherwise I'm going to get prosecuted. Or at least I'm going to get investigated. What if you can't leave? What if you can't leave? What if they have you at gunpoint? Well, then I'm defending myself. Well, then I'm defending myself for sure. I mean, but that's ridiculous. It's to the point where it's just so asinine. I mean, the old saying, rather judged by 12 than carried by six, right? But still, you shouldn't have to think like that. In Florida, you don't have to think like that. In Florida, you can be in your car and have somebody threatening you in your car and defend yourself in your car. I .E. Florida's at a 50 -year low when it comes to crime, 90 -year low in Miami. Because the criminals know it. The criminals know it, right? They know. By the way, it doesn't make it. It's perfect. But I'll tell you what, it's a hell of a lot better. You know, look at... We own a financial company. When your crimes are up 50 % in one state and down 50 % in another state, those are pretty telling... That's a pretty telling tale, right? Like, you know what? Like when we pick stocks, we look at numbers and like, gosh, boy, those numbers are really good. Well, I think let's do more of that, right? Let's maybe buy some of that company, right? I mean, just sad where we are in the states like New York and California. How do you not look at the crime? By the way, I said to the group the other day, it was Chicago. There was a bunch of reporters who actually got mugged as they were doing their online report. The report. It's crazy. And like you said... I did a charity golf tournament with a client on Monday. He was part of our team. A police officer. And he said, he goes, Mikey, he goes, it's absolutely disgusting to see these same people that we arrest time and time and time again. One of the illegal aliens who was out on a bail to rob some cars. Illegal. In the country, illegal. He's out on cashless bail. A joke. A joke. But yeah, here we are now in the national media for the rest of the week and the weekend we'll focus on this tragic shooting in Jacksonville, right? This is one tragic shooting amongst many, many, many tragic shootings. The manifesto will be released right away, I'm sure, right? He's already is a white supremacist, 21 year old young kid, and you'll say, well, we should not have the guns. Okay. So he, instead of walking with an AR, he could have walked in with a pistol, done the exact same thing. But here's the thing that at some point, are we, I mean, are we actually going to have an honest conversation about what is radicalizing these kids? You know, whether it's on the right or the left, on either side. The mental illness problems, which we continue to say something, but we refuse to look at any of that, right? You've got a huge homeless problem in this country. Part of it is caused by the welfare. Part of it is caused by the massive amounts of mental illness that's out there. And instead of getting these people in the right spots, getting them medicated, you know, getting them in the right direction, we just let them back out on the streets because boy, they can't have that on their record. If they have mental illness on the record, they'll never recover. Well, guess what? If they have mental illness, they'll never recover. Right. Well, this kid, like this kid was the Asian one that's mostly white. Did you see that? That was a different one. Yeah. Yeah. The mostly white Asian. That was another, another classic headline from CNN. Right. The mostly white Asian. No, this one was the Jacksonville kid, a 21 year old and tragic. Yeah, sure. So anyway, so the, but the thing, they're all, everyone's out there immediately. It's like, we've got to do something about the systemic racism in the country.
A highlight from He's Fired!! (We Had No Choice)
"So, Ryan said that if we were one second late for the morning call, then you're kicked out of the research group and you basically can't ever come back. There's no redemption. Wait, am I allowed to swear? Yeah, I'm allowed to swear. This place is full of shit, bro. You ask and if you ask, there's no way back into the call. There's just no way back. It's finished. So if you get kicked out on the morning call, you're not coming back. So I don't care who you are. I don't care whether you're the host or not a host, we're now making this call live at quarter past. We expect everybody on at quarter past. If you're not on by 20 past, you're out and if you're out, you ain't coming back in. We need to show up on time. We need to show up prepared and the one thing I'm not going to tolerate is people arriving at the morning call as passengers. People arriving at the morning call with no alpha and no value add, just thinking that they'll sit there and comment. I don't accept that shit. If you're not here at quarter past nine, you have five minutes to get on and get the legs. If not, you're out and if you're out, you ain't coming back. We are all there at a certain time every single day and we expect that everyone arrive on time and prepared. So, I mean, I made a rule now because people kept coming late, certain people, I'm not going to mention names. So the morning call is the whole team jumping on in the morning and preparing what's the top news, what's the top coins and I think a lot of people work here just to be on that morning call and this is because of me. I couldn't find the link, I was seven minutes late and now I am in shit. That's it. If you're not there five minutes after the call starts, you're out and once you're out, there's no way back into the call. Don't tell him, but I was 14 minutes late today. I don't think he noticed, so we'll see. Thank you if you are. Thank you if you're Kyle, Sheldon, Rand, Miles, I don't give a shit if you are. Anyway, let's carry on. In the military, there are people getting on. You see a few NBA players, you see a few pretty big gamers. It's too hard to use. I mean, if I lost like $20 worth of ease trying to do it, believe me, people have lost a lot more. Yeah, there's problems. We have major technical issues, as usual. I don't know what to do. I'm serious. Do I just go live like this? I'm luminescent. What else am I supposed to do? This is fun. It's important. We've got to do it. I don't know what to do. This thing is like we already meant to have started two minutes ago. And now Alistair's frothing here with excitement that there's problems. Look at him, salivating like a bloody Kardashian cameraman. Hi, Rand. We're having trouble with the green screen, getting it set. We're doing that thing where it's either the host or the green screen. Can I be adjusted your colour, your green for the preview? Yes. Preview. Wait, there we're back. We clicked preview. It worked. Now, on the black magic card, press the find button. On this thing? Yeah. That one? Yes, press that button. Okay, I'm there. It worked. Well done. You're a genius. This is why you own this company. He's not impressed. He's having his breakfast and matcha and we're late. What can we do? Guys, let's just quickly close off over here. Remember, we do have the morning call as well, which is right now. That is on the Banta Bubbles chart, the newsroom. You can go there. Sign in right now. The call has just begun. It's capped to, I think it's 500. So make sure that you jump in. I see someone says that Karl's going to be late. Yes, I'm going to be late. I'm still on the show. I'm paranoid if I'm late. I'm out. That's where you can hear Rand shouting at people. So if you find that a good time, then make sure you join. There is also a lot of alpha in the group. I've got a problem with it. The problem is that you're not accountable in any element. The language is done. I don't get my translations. The influencer campaign is two weeks old. I can't get involved in it. I just need results. Just need results. I can't get involved in the process. Can't get involved in managing the resources. That's what you need to be doing. So I've given you four things. Now you need to focus on those four things. One, the tech must work. No bullshit, no downtime. Make sure the tech works. You've had millions to know on this tech. No bullshit, no downtime. The ability to patch guests in seamlessly during the show is important. Can't carry on in the middle of the show, interrupting the show, not being able to share screens, audio is not coming through. That needs to be fixed like now. Your responsibilities are very simple. The tech in this office must always work. Must be seamless. I called me in, gave me more work and less time and layered through the deliverables and just basically said that none of the tech should ever give a problem ever again. And it's quite hard to agree to something like that because that's not how tech works. I don't need to know the process. I don't need to know the issues. Everyone else here gets their job done. They manage the resources to get the job done. I'm expecting the same from you. Okay? If I risk doing it and I mess it up, it's a big thing. So I need to get someone who's got the knowledge and has the experience to do it. It's a nice statement, but it's not possible. In some situations it's not. All I do is kid -shadow them and how hard I push on both sides. Is that just the reality of life? It's the reality of life. I don't hear it from anybody else. I don't hear it from you. I don't take it personally. I find as a teacher it's fascinating to learn, but if you're looking for compliments and you feel uplifted in your life, go somewhere else. 100%.

Nothing that a good cappuccino and what we call in South Africa, I've been here for a long time. I've been driving shows. I've been doing pretty much whatever. My job has evolved into pretty much everything here. I'm bored of driving shows. I've finally been off shows. I'm doing projects now. Projects for Cryptobancer. So influencer marketing, translating the languages, moving our broadcasting system over, then not only that, I've been keeping up with all of my stuff, following up on everything every day, but I've also been getting knocked out every day. Also getting a little bit of shit every day. But I also know from being here a long time, sitting here and arguing and making excuses doesn't help either of us. Long -term portfolio. Long -term portfolio. Yeah, it's more higher time frame for your stuff. Yeah, fair, fair. So long -term stuff, bro. So I'm going to help them build the ultimate portfolio. You know how I do that soldier sort of mechanism of understanding the different levels that your altcoins should be inserted into your long -term portfolio. So it's higher time frame portfolio plus strategies and you're preparing them mentally for the bull market and how they're going to act on it and what they're going to do when it comes, et cetera. Okay. Thank you. How long are you going to be? Not more than an hour. No more than an hour. It never stops, no? Working on the run is like, it is really, really, really hard. Some people can... If you don't do something right, you don't stay in your lane, you're going to get hit on hard. A lot of people can't take that. A lot of people will leave.

James is trouble. We had the disco moment, remember? Last week when Ranz Lightz went on and off five times. It happened again this morning for Kyle's show. But yeah. He didn't shit again. James is going to get fired. Look, I know it's tough here. This is a high performance environment. But if we're going to achieve our objectives, we can only have a high performance environment. But it's my responsibility to make sure that we are executing according to our vision. And our vision is to build a billion dollar business in less than three years. And to me, as I say, culture is the most important thing in a business. It's what separates good businesses from bad businesses. And I won't let the culture of this place decline. It's just not something that I'll do. I won't compromise on culture ever. It took me 17 years to build a $150 million business. I've done it before. This time it's actually about changing people's lives. And if you look at every single person that I work with here, they'll tell you their lives have changed. I don't think anybody's going to complain in three years when they're sitting on their yachts sipping on margaritas. They won't complain anymore. It's a single swim. That's all. So, Rand always striving for success. I think that's very, very good. That's the perfect leader that we need. Yeah, he's an incredible human, incredible business person. And his work ethic is unparalleled. So, I look up to that. I see him as a mentor. Because, I mean, I thought I worked hard. He has four kids and he still works harder than me, which is just mind -blowing. It's insane. So, yeah. What are you talking about? Yeah, so, obviously, Do's been under me and, like, within the business. He's been running the live training sessions. He was very, very afraid of being behind camera in the beginning. But I just had this feeling that he had to get his ass behind cameras. And I think he's more than just doing my charts on Discord. I think he should have a show. I think he will annihilate in the pool. Like, he's really good. But I feel a lot of our hosts are going to struggle in the pool. I think they do well in this market. I don't think they're going to do well. And I think we've got a channel that we're wasting. The fact that we don't have daily shows there. I think we're going to rebrand the channel, the other channel. I think I'm actually leaning towards Banter Plus. Because I think Banter Plus just says everything it needs to say. It's like, it's the better channel, it's plus, it's additional. Plus, it's the better channel. Yeah. If it says Banter Plus, if you're making a step -style channel, people aren't going to watch it. People don't watch the second league. People don't watch Formula 2. People don't watch. People want to watch the best. I promise you, bro. I'm going to move my show. I'm going to move my show to another channel. Soon. Rebrand and move. It's too much of a move. I'll do it when there's movement in the market and there's a full cycle. I'm going to jump. So you want two main channels? Sure. Why? What do I gain if I don't do it? I've got a channel. I've got two amazing channels instead of one. We'll rebrand a channel. Then you can try another show there. But you know, if you get onto the show, you sign a contract, because we don't want to build stars here that don't compete with us. Wait, you know. You know where my loyalty is. I know where your loyalty is. You know what they say. When you marry your wife, you're marrying your best friend. When you're getting divorced, you're getting divorced from the wicked witch of Eastbeck, bro. You can't even talk to her when you're getting divorced. That's what you've got to plan for. You know what I mean? We do have one. We do have one quick problem, and I need the banter fans' help with it, okay? Especially this sniper army. Run is considering his maybe, because we have a second channel coming up. Maybe Dylan should have his own show. So what I want you to do, I want you to go to Run's show today, and I want you to spam the shit out of the comments and say, Dylan must get a show. Dylan must get a show. Dylan must get a show. I love these altcoins. I just love these labels. I love these foods. I mean, I'm doing this stuff every day, and I'm so happy to share it with you every day. We're going to basically park there to pay, so you're going to have two powerhouses driving to one run. Yeah, that's the difference here, because a lot of people aren't there. What you do in the background is your deal. You guys are going so much at the end of it. You're not going to come... I just want to make sure that he has a show and that you... For as long as your show is growing and you have a lot of community... You think I'm good enough to have a show. I don't want to come here and sell one. more So, exactly, this is my point. I was always a reluctant presenter. So Ryan pulled me into the office. We were talking about the show and everything and the possibility of me getting one. It's not something I was always pushing and chasing myself, so it was quite strange to me when he told me I'm potentially not good enough. So, I mean, there is a difference between show business, obviously, and the content work that I do. I know my content is 10 out of 10. I'm not the most exciting or charismatic presenter, but I think I can get better. And I think I can prove him wrong. Yeah, so people want to know if I'm good enough or not. You just need to come look at my charts, really. I mean, look at this tweet. When everyone is getting all depressed, I said to them, Pump town coming for render even though there's a death cost, okay? Look at this. Bang. Perfect. Absolute perfection. Into the trend. TP time. We're out of this trade. Look at this one. Oil. Everyone was so bullish on oil. We got the short lie. We traded this oil completely live on the channel. Look at Rune. Called a short on the live into a banging resistance zone. I mean, there it is right there. Look at this camp. Looking so sad. Rune's coming down right to this zone here. At least 1 .4. Maybe even down there. So, it's all happening in here all the time. Just come look at my charts. They're here in the Discord as well. Look at this. Look at this DYDX. We said it's breaking through resistance. It was a big resistance zone. Looking for support to develop. Look at that. Bang. Now we're going to short this thing. So, you decide. Is my work good enough? I don't know. We'll find out. I like Dylan. Dylan I've known for a long time. In fact, Dylan's wife and my wife are actually very good friends. That's how we met. And when we moved into Banta, I brought him along for the ride. Because I just knew we'd find a spot for him. Now, the ball is in his court. We're giving him the screen. We're giving him the platform. And now he has to perform. And it's kind of cute to see how stressed he gets. Because Dylan's skin -haired beard. And now he's shitting himself in front of the camera. So, it's actually quite fun to watch it happen. We'll obviously support him. I want him to succeed. When you get to 50 shots, that's a lot better if you didn't have to have a phone. You want to embarrass him? Let me show you how embarrassing my first shoot was, bro. This is the first time I ever did fucking live. Live fucking TV, bro. I do really love you. Good luck. Good luck to 50 years. Welcome to Crypto Trader at the World's Best. How bad is this? How bad is this? This is basically true. I am Crypto Man Ryan. And I'll be your host. How bad is this?

And when it's getting more and more and more boring. I'm starting to get my momentum back, which is why I think I'm going to cancel my career trip because I just can't afford a disruption in momentum. I think we need to use this time to build because you're like two green candles on Bitcoin and you know what happens, everyone's going to rush back. When that happens, a lot of changes are going to happen in this business. So the first bit of content we're going to do is Dylan's going to have a show. We're going to finalize all the agreements here, but Dylan will have his show.

"The first follower is the spark that really makes the fight. Now here's the second follower, this is a turning point. It's proof the first has done well. Now it's not a lone nut and it's not two nuts. Three is a crown and a crowd is news. A movement must be public. Make sure outsiders see more than just the leader. Everyone needs to see the followers because new followers emulate followers, not the leader. Now here come two more people than three more immediately. Now we've got momentum This is the tipping point, and now we have a movement. As more people jump in, it's no longer risking. If they were on the fence before, there's no reason not to join in now. They won't stand out. They won't be ridiculed, and they will be part of the in crowd if they hurry. See, that's the thing. A movement, one, a movement of two, a movement of 5, a movement leads to momentum, momentum leads to numbers, numbers need to majorities, majorities lead to minorities, minorities don't want to feel left out being a minority, so they join the minority. Natural human psychology and sociology is very simple. No, one wants to be perceived to be the lone ranger out there. This is an a comic book. This is real. So companies are afraid to stand up and say something, well, there's an LGBT group group out there saying my CEI score isn't high enough and I've got a run some ads celebrating LGBTQIA issues and if I don't do it and celebrate it. So let's go hire Dylan Mulvaney. Well, what happened again? People stood up. And now you're seeing momentum. You know, the patient's part, I want to reemphasize. You've got to be patient here. This culture war is a long time coming. A long time coming. It's going to change slowly. But ladies and gentlemen, nobody wants to be in the minority of a movement or else you look and you're like, gosh, why are all these people against me? You start to question yourself. Like, my gosh, am I wrong? Have I evaluated the circumstances around this particular issue in the wrong way? You start to question yourself and uncertainty is a demon in that. And in that scenario, the colony of bigot am I, people start to question themselves. But you don't question yourself when you see 51% of people out there. And that has been the danger of social media. Social media has led to a lot of really positive outcomes, a lot, information exchanges fast, movements on our end can move faster because the information exchange, you can have that thunderclap thing, you'd be able to thunderclap a tweet around the Internet. Social media has got a lot of benefits. But one of the downsides of it is that magnified one of alinsky's rules, which is it's not what you have. It's what your enemy thinks you have. And the problem and how that's related to this video and how we're in this cultural shift now is that the radical left, the left that believes drag queens should be able to shake their junk in front of your kids face when they're 6 and 7 years old. That is a ridiculously small portion of America. Now you're hearing this probably thinking, no, no, no, everybody's for that. I mean, we've heard it. No, believe me, they're not. That is a sliver of America, but they are very loud and they are very local, very vocal, and they are on these social media platforms where you see it and it gives the perception, this patina, again, of authenticity behind it. What really is an AstroTurf effort. There are real believers there, but most of its AstroTurf. People just playing along. The only way to break that patina of authenticity, kraken, scrape it off. Is to get out and break out of the social media system into the real world where people do real stuff. Like this, this is the watch company I've never heard of them before.

What you can do and how you can start a momentum, how momentum and start a movement and switch the minority of the majority, not because the minority has ever been a minority. The minority was the majority, but you can see when you launch a spot like this by the number of users, gosh, we've been the majority of the whole time. They're the crazy people on the other side.

"Right, let's talk plastic waste. It's a big, big issue for a lot of consumer products companies as they try to combat this issue, there's different technologies out there for doing that, and We as consumers try to do our part by recycling. Let's check in with Martine Stefan. He's a deputy CEO of Carpio's Carpio's is a company that trades on the Euronext under the ticker symbol A. L. C. R B based in France. Martin. Thanks so much for joining us here, talk to us just frame out for us. The global problem that is plastic waste. Yes. Thank you for inviting me. Uh, you know, 350 million metric tons of plastics are produced every year of which 10 million metric tons end up in the environment every year, So it's a big issue, and the issue is not plastics issue is plastic waste. Because we have been producing plastic for more than 50 years, and we have not taking enough care of the end of life of plastics. And Carpio's. We are the first and only company to develop biological technologies for the end of life of plastic in five years. Martine. Maybe you could speak a little, too how large global corporations like Loreal or Pepsi are able to be a part of the solution rather than the problem. Part of the solution. Yes, and they really feel responsible for that. It's a core responsibility, you know, to tackle this plastics pollution issue, Nobody will be able to put an end to plastics pollution by itself, so it's really a global play. And our partners, you know, Loreal, mostly Mexico century. Are very aware that it's by collaborating with startup like us with governance with NGOs that we will develop solutions to really tackle this plastic solution issue which is not acceptable. Talk to us, Martine about kind of what your technology is what it does, and in kind of how it's being used. Yes. So we use biological tool, which is an enzyme Uh, you know, we have a lot of enzymes in our body and enzyme is a catalyst, which triggers a reaction normally triggers biological reaction. But our scientists had the idea to use this biological tool to trigger not biological reaction. But the chemical reaction and this chemical reaction is to break down plastics. Into its, uh A lot of emails, which are the common building blocks of plastics. So instead of putting together the same molecule the southern of times to make a plastic solid Faber Our enzyme breaks down this long chain of molecules into single molecules, which are called monorails. Then we isolate the monomer purify them, and we re combined them again to make new plastic, the same quality as plastics, which are made from petrochemicals, So it's a really a solution for the end of life is not to reuse solution. It's a pure recycling. It's a virtuous loop. Which we have made possible. Are there certain types of plastics that don't work to go through these technologies? You know, I think, even as an ordinary recycler, people have to think twice before they they do throw out or recycle certain types of plastics, and it's interesting to see what's happening. Across different cities. When it comes to, you know, really. The city is cracking down on certain companies using and distributing certain types of plastics to their consumers. So today. Our technology works for police sales, which is mostly p E T, which is the plastics for bottles but also a food transfer example of text and when you see police stay on the government, it is exactly the same material than the material which is used to make transparent bottles. So our technology works for any kind of PG transparent bottles, but also colored bottle or opaque of trays or police 30 shirts. We can deport him, arise or be construct. All kinds of PT waste to make any kind of PT product so we can make a bottle from the bottle that we can also make a T shirt from a bottle or Wanted Hamas shirt. It is exactly the same for us, Uh, in the future. We have the intention and the goal to develop this technology for other pollinators, So our technology must be seen really as a platform. Two. Recycle any kind of plastics in the future. That's a fascinating technology fascinating story for a huge global problem. Just think about all the plastic bottles we see on the side of the road or worse yet in the waterways, Martine Stefan, deputy CEO of Carpio's coming to us from France, We appreciate that again. You know, that really is a global issue. Somali and just begging out for technological solutions. In addition to more recycling is only 14% of plastics actually are recycled, Paul.
