Jack Dorsey’s Square, Inc. is buying a majority stake in Jay-Z’s streaming service Tidal
"Square got a lot of people to do double takes this morning by announcing that it is acquiring quote a significant majority stake in jay z's streaming music service title for two hundred and ninety seven million dollars. Jay z will also join squares board of directors quoting the new york times title which jay z bought in partnership with other artists. In two thousand. Fifteen for fifty. Six million dollars provides members access to music music videos and exclusive content from artists but the streaming music industry has been dominated by competitors like spotify apple and amazon in two thousand seventeen. Jay z sold thirty three percent of the company to sprint for an undisclosed amount after merger sprint is now a part of t mobile earlier this week. Jay z bought back the shares from t mobile and most will be sold onto square as part of this deal. Mr dorsey and jay z began to discuss the acquisition quote. A few months ago said jesse deroga- a sect who will lead title on an interim basis. It started as a conversation between the two of them. He said they found that sense of common. Purpose and quote. Mr dora guscott said square which was founded in two thousand nine will offer financial tools to help titles artists collect revenue and manage their finances quote. There are other tools. They need to be successful and that we're going to build for them. He said and quote so this is one of those stories where the speculation and chatter around. It is almost as interesting as the news itself. I of course you've got the celebrity angle. Jay z and jack dorsey. It actually turns out that they are good buds. They vacation together. You might have seen those yacht pictures from the paparazzi okay but square a payments company and title a music streaming service of somewhat dubious success. How does a tie between them. Make any kind of sense. Here's what jack dorsey himself had to say. Quote it comes down to a simple idea finding new ways for to support their work. New ideas are found at the intersections. And we believe there is a compelling one between music and the economy making the economy work for artists is similar to what square has done for sellers square start at twelve years ago by giving small sellers a simple tool in order to participate more fully in the economy and grow. We did the same for individuals with cash app which now enables a comprehensive set of financial services for folks who weren't able to access it before title started with the idea of honoring artists by being owned and led focused on an uncompromised experience of the art. It's refreshing and right. The vision only grow stronger as it's matched with more powerful tools for artists inclusive of new ways of getting paid given what square has been able to do for sellers of all sizes and individuals through cash app. We believe we can now work for artists to see the same success for them and us. We're going to start small and focus with the most critical needs of artists and growing their fan bases and quote. So he doesn't exactly say it there but everyone is reading between the lines looking around at this current. Nfc madness. and remembering though. I didn't tell you about this. That jack dorsey and jay z recently announced. They were creating an endowment with five hundred. Bitcoin's worth twenty three million dollars plus two teams working on bitcoin development initially in africa and india. And so everyone's thinking. This is a crypto play as peter kaku tweeted quote. I would be surprised if there wasn't an nf story. Here that fits the jack story and seems to be what he's hinting at in his tweets. But again you don't need to own title to sell jay z's and tease this would be weird if square was buying a music streaming service that people actually used but it's much weirder. It's a publicly traded. Financial services company. Buying a failed music streaming company. I guess square shareholders won't complain because they've already signed on for the jack dorsey experience but whatever awesome artists and square story. Jack is promising here. Doesn't require a three hundred million dollar payout. To jay z quote. Other people can see other angles. Here let me give you some counter takes. This is jason delray quote. Plenty of people on the square. Buying title is dumb side. But i'll be on the other end. Could it be a mistake. Sure is the deal relationship based sure. Many are but squares incredible things for small merchants and for everyday people with cash so why not artists and quote. This is scott belsky quote for a big company to create an entirely new center of gravity inside it. You need a forcing function with this lens. And the growing need to outfit the creator economy with financial tools. This seems a logical step for square and quote. This is dr sanjay quote square acquiring title to focus on new ways for artists. Monetize is going to be seen as the watershed moment of the creator economy. We're tilting away. From platforms capturing all the value to the people creating the content doing so directly for fans or indirectly via ads and quote and finally turner. Novak goes really really wild but then it doesn't actually seem all that wild when you say it out loud and then think about it especially when you see the products that twitter has been building out lately. Newsletters spaces quote jacqueline so deep into the crater economy with twitter. The past six months it leaked into square a great acquisition. That will ten acts everything square has been doing with consumer user acquisition. Not outrageous to think he merges square and twitter at some point and quote.

What happened in this. In the last four or five days that was simply not enough adequate generation supply available to meet the demand and the supply that they had reserved so to speak when with shop when some of the facilities came all flying of been made things even worse and let me quickly speak to those who are trying to say. oh the wind turbine frozen.

You wind turbine strobes. So it was a combination but when it comes to win and sola that's still only counts for a fraction of the energy that's produced in the state of texas.

Anti-Racist Science Education
"All right today in the show. We're unsmiling what's not working in science education around representation and racism and how to teach science in a more inclusive way and idea from listener and scientists esther kunle yes so thanks to esther. We went looking for k. Through twelve teachers teaching at the intersection of science and racial justice at all grade levels. And i want to start with. Let me see a fears. She's a post doctoral fellow in the collaborative for stem education. And outreach vanderbilt okay. She's a black scientist. Helping out in science classrooms in tennessee. Among fifth graders at this one particular school she is a total rockstar to walk into a classroom. And they'll be like dr. Yeah it's me. It's me everyone you know know autographs thing. We lit up each others world. Our saying that let me see a drops into fifth seventh and eighth. Grade science classrooms like a real life. Miss frizzle okay. I'm not kidding. You she wheels the cart between classes clattering with beakers and different very interesting looking chemicals and students. They're so intrigued. They run up to her on our like number my wife just all that stuff and then when she's in the classroom let me see a doesn't just help them run experiments. She'll also delve into the ethics of designing an experiment. Okay she'll talk about how wrong. The tuskegee study was which is win. Scientists studied syphilis in black men and withheld treatment. Sushi's like introducing bioethics to kids as important part of the curriculum. Yup scientists are presented as very human herself included and her students can totally handle these conversations. We see what's happening with this generation with them protests. And they're speaking out and they're not having it they're not gonna they're not going to allow us to continue to destroy her and her point is that if science teachers can tap into that compassion and that curiosity and show the way that scientists have messed up. Kids might take up an interest in science. I love it and if we can't do that then we are gonna lose on. And i think it's hard were minority kids. They already don't see themselves as the teacher or the prisoners doing the science so that already kind of puts up a block of well. That's just what the old white main with crazy hairdo and so another thing. Let me see a does is named drop scientists of color as often as possible. She'll talk about astrophysicist. Did eisler medical physicist hadean ecole green astronauts. Joseph akaba and jeanette epps. She designed paper rocket lesson around them and this helps kids develop a mental picture of a career in stem beyond a doctor or a dentist. This is so cool because it's not just about teaching science history right. It's also helping. Students see themselves as scientists and for gretchen craig. Turner the next teacher. I want to introduce you to this. Level of engagement becomes even more important as students get older and start to get into their teenage years and develop their own opinions their own opinions about science. Yeah to be critical of it. Oh yeah that was not in my k. through twelve science education hers either. I don't remember a lot of writing or Opinions being part of science in fact it was very much i believe taught. The opinions didn't belong in science right that it was supposed to be a

"Original listening might as well just listen to the original. So I was on the verge of giving up on the song and then we tried one more thing which was the guy's, and I have very disparate music tastes. But one of the few bands that we all agree on his legacy and I turn to my drummer my bass. Player and I said, why don't you try playing like a burning county and jolly and immediately looked into that groove that starts the song on the record and Straightway was like we got it. We've found it. This is how this is going to be because it was so radically different but it had a really distinctive character to it, and then from that, you know building other lives on top of it quite something quite sort of ambient in. Of the top in counterpoint to the aggression of the rhythm section on it's probably the song I'm proudest of mice out of the split. Franklin and know about your experience hearing the no effects versions of your songs. Is there anything that surprised you were able to bring out something in the song that you maybe didn't know or had forgotten about Very much. So I mean, the first thing is when we agreed to do the split, a wonderful thing happened, and this wasn't avert discussed at any point, but it was just kind of understood between me and Mike that neither of US would have any input into the other classes creative approach to the record. I. So the first time I had any music from non effects including knowing even what they were doing was when I had the finish mixes and there was something really cool about that festival it demonstrates that allows degree of trust between the two of us as writers as as arranges which. Is Cooler and I mean that's kind of why we agreed to do it with each other specifically. But also it meant that I go to listen to this this. Let all my it kind of objective listening. You know I, put it on as if it was a record that I just bought obviously I then had songs, woods and chords that I wrote coming out of the speakers but through the medium of non thanks, very distinct tonality and that was an amazing moment for me because I'm such a huge fan and and to hear you know something like substitute.

"Sister Rosetta uses a songwriting device that POPs up in several frank. Turner. Songs that I was curious about you use a lot of religious language to describe kind of secular people and places Yeah. What is it about this technique? You find interesting well I mean it's a number of things I mean I might start sites probably because I received what you could probably describe as classical education I was educated on a scholarship at a boarding school in you know that meant I know my Bible and I know King James Authorized as well. I mean infanticide you know I think it's the. Thing that the using that language is very tempting, right because it's so powerful and so resident both in and of itself, and because of the place is in Western culture historically, and I think that dillon doesn't follow that and indeed springsteen and other people as well. Leonard Cohen Nick Cave, you know these are people who engage with that idiom because it's kind of it's enormously rich and complex, but is there for US So that's a big I think I. as I mentioned I was raised in a religious household as well, which contributes I. I'm an atheist myself that that's hugely important. You know it's it's it's a rich literary scene to play with more philosophically I would say that. And I don't think any of this particular original insights from the US. But you know there is a religious impulse in humans. Or collectivist impulse that idea that that designed to lose yourself in something greater than yourself historically you know the the most common way that people have done that has been religion. And I understand that but you know when you see people are eligible to own talking about all. Maybe we need to create an atheist church to give that religious sense to people who don't believe in God I think to myself. This is a man who's never been to a GIG or football match. There are many other ways that human beings do this in a full crowds, a good example or any sports properly or indeed a GIG and a sing-along, and there is something you know I think that. I mean to agree I feel like human beings have a religious impulse in its it. That's really do anything about that, and what we need to do is find that safe and constructive in healthy ways to channel that because one of the otherwise guess challenges is dubious political movements, of course. So you know first of all I find role to be redemptive in the sense that I'm discussing here but also I think it's a bad thing for society when kids are getting their rooks off at rock and roll Singalong than they are in kind of Brown shed uniforms or whatever else they might be interested.

Let's get back into it. So frank your new album is a split album with the hardcore punk band. No effects. Where you cover each other's songs how did the idea to collaborate like this come about? Well so the mutual cover split was a feature of the Hukou punk scene in the eighties and the nineties on the underground on the diy seen that was a big rash of a mutual records and then that person kind of reached its apogee. North Branson to the split in two thousand and two. It was really good. But it was also like to the big bands on the scene doing it and it kind of it almost like killed the vehicle by. Through its on level of success and no one's really dumb incense Mike from Norfolk's friend. It's it's a weird thing because I grew up listening to his music and I've still a small small adolescent part of me. That is slightly kind of giggling whenever we hang out like. But you know we genuinely friends. lost. Some of we did a festival together in Italy. We crossed pods on the festival circuit has bands of want to do and Mike turned around and said. Would you be interested in doing a couple of Split and I managed to hide my excitement I think comply play cool initially, but you know it's I. think it's a cool. Medium for creative expression goes back to everything I was saying other about arrangement and trying to find different approaches to songs in different character and songs. And it's one of my favorite bands and so for me doing side of the split was awesome because it was like cool. How like? Find a new way into some of the I know in love and demonstrated. That's well but also you know to hear no effects play. My songs is is a trip man. Let me tell the so Yeah. The whole thing has been awesome. Started off the interview listening to your version of the no effect song eat the meek and your version definitely has sounds in it that sound like they're inspired by the cure and depeche mode and other kinds of post punk music I, WanNa, know how you decided to cover this particular song and why you thought that particular style was right for it. So. That was quite high on my list of effects tunes I wanted to tackle. My choice of songs was dictated by number one of which was my taste but another one which was trying to find songs where I could bring something to the table that wasn't originally you know there's no point in doing a straight punk cover of an effect on because guess what it's already destroyed punks on for the most but you know it was finding some. that. I love that I could find a way into when we're working on eat the meek may and my band it was interesting because we we tried a couple of different things and kept slipping back into the original arrangement which I think is a vote of confidence in that original arrangement you know song is meant to be that way or at least sounds great. That way we start somewhere are gradually slide back into the original kind. Of reggae kind of Russian a which point I'm not interested because if if you're GonNa do it seems the.

She bought sticks of wood and everything I mean she was really vice but the bottom line is she didn't want to have another didn't want to have an at I knew it. So I kind of grew up. So you were that baby that she was that day. I didn't know what Love was as a young child, but I was born independent. After the By eighteen years old and. Changed forever when Ike Turner the lead singer of the Popular Saint Louis Ban Kings rhythms brought her on stage and handed her a microphone was. I knew he had found a star and charmed Anna's mother into letting her join the ban. When we were talking alone last week. So if you don't want to talk about it, just tell me and talk about it and I ask you do you remember the first time I kit you? And you told me the first time. Do you feel comfortable telling people? Okay. Okay. I didn't talk about it when I recorded the song a fool in love I took it to New York judge Mary of sue records. He said, why don't you keep it with the girl's voice I like it. And then you know he had considered that so then. I xe problem was he was a musician that always wanted to be a stock and was the star locally, but never internationally to travel so he then changed the name to i. And changed my main to Tina because. If I ran away. Tina. was his name. It was patent as you call it so so he could own you so he could own. SMART. He wasn't educated smart man, but he has a common sense in a really strategy and con so you owned you. So he came back. I didn't even know that that was the name on the record, and so I started to feel something and he started to touch me. I, really didn't like because that was my brother that was my friend actually maybe I wouldn't have been here today if we had not if I had gotten a relationship with him because we were very close as friends so you weren't even his girlfriend. No it was just. I had sex with everybody around him over everybody's wife. So then I said to the woman that was helping him at the time I said. I don't want to do this. I knew how I was he had beaten always fought the always fought women men everybody. And my instincts told me I was moving into something that wasn't going to be good and so she went in and told ISO then he said she said I wanna see you so I went into his room. And he started that he had. A sick way I found. He started it with what are you trying to do to me, and then the next thing it would pick up something because you know if you play guitar, you can't fight and play the guitar. So you always thought with something. Against the against the head always ahead with a shoe stretcher and I had never been meeting. She'll stretcher. And it really hurt. But I was still trying to figure out what was happening. And then so then the the beating came you know, yes, you'd like all the rest of I was down by then really starting to cry and then he said. Yet in bed. that. was really all. Sex. After. The I, hate you how can I let you? How can we make love now if it's love yeah, and went through that and then I lay there with a swollen head. Just having sex. Feeling like you have really gotten yourself into something I had nowhere to go ahead a child. I had already a child from one of the musicians I know where to Ron I needed to make money I want to sing to make money. In nineteen seventy, eight, I can t divorced Tina was left to raise her two sons one from Ike and one from a previous relationship. She also adopted two of ice children as her stepson's everybody who's watching this right now, who's living this right now you told me something I thought was so. I mean, profound you said, sometimes you'd walk in the kitchen in the morning. And say what's on your mind? And you say nothing you have to start working on having nothing on your mind. So when it has, you wouldn't believe and nothing was on your mind. Sometimes now I really love and he was really crazy. Crazy. It was crazy because how could you not have anything around always have something on your mind something always on your mind stupid. Over. Also happy I can laugh about my pass because when I look back well, actually today the we did laugh about him a lot. He was alive behind his back because everyone knew that it was ridiculous how he was. Do you remember Robbie? Montgomery. Robbie. Was a support for me in those dark days. Might choke up here a little bit. Robbie was like a sister. When she was an i. get you know Ms. Robbie. Montgomery. Is The star of the hit show. Welcome to sweetie pies but MS Robbie.

"They could be and they work and they were in two thousand nine when music legend Tina Turner took her final bow that curtain closed. One of the most storied careers in music history after half a century eight grameen's and nearly two hundred, million albums sold the Queen Rock and roll had left the building. Tell me you were sixteen nine for last tour. You put away the Lou batons you're the only human being I. Read. So choose that whereas up there with the red social before we knew what red social that. Okay so you put that away. How hard was that to to hang up the shoes oprah my friend. Very easy. Really I've been working towards that. For so long over I worked hard all my life you know gave me ever a thing and I when I started to take care of my family I would say. Oh. I wish someone would do that for me and I knew that it wouldn't happen. So I worked. And when that happened that means I balanced my money and I had to make sure that financially that I could do it and when I left there I, put it to rest I, put it to sleep. I tried to forget all of those stressful moments even the dressing room and not feeling like going on stage whenever it's time for me to be Tina something turned and that's that professional set I became no matter what I felt sick I was or aching leg ideally because I wanted to leave that stage knowing that everybody had a wonderful time and. Again. Every time I've seen you perform and I've seen you perform for them anybody else on earth I. Remember standing in Houston with a woman who was crying and said, I now know I can do anything just from watching you on stage and that's what you wanted every time letters saying it was more than singing more than a rock and roll star didn't know how my style of work on stage to give people hope and make them go out and make it happen for themselves and all of the male that came in to me said after seeing your show. I went out and I made my life. That is what I achieved. Yeah. That is what you achieve. That is what you need. So the night in Sheffield England when you knew that was going to be the last performance. Was it bittersweet at least no opera Now this I have to be careful how I say this because the public will get it wrong when you've waited for something decades. I went back out the I can tina days were over where I was a slave I had to go back and slave again for myself. And that whole. Because to have enough money to address to take care of family and to take care of responsibilities and all of my Chinese Allah. In that position so don't worry about it. Yeah. I. Wanted to retire and not worry and that is what that did for me. So I got to my goal I received that moment a revelation of this is it I'm going home now Whoa I was going home in a big way more than just a house. I was going back to a place where I had decided. In. My last stage of my life where I want to be. Yeah. No one ever knew unstaged. How much? I really was tired of singing and dancing. You were tired of it. It's work I I know it's work but it's something when you do all of your life yes every night that's all you do you know everyone is having a tam up there working. It's just was years and years of and. Again the body has started to react on working on high blood pressure. Yeah. I was taking medication which pulled me back I didn't have I couldn't get into that second year to to to buy is that what would happen to you on stage? It feels surreal. It was the second year the first few seconds was you know the look and everything and then the second song I started to press buyer and I was losing beauty but that wasn't important then because I knew I already had my audience and then I make the first costume change second year. I went for third gear. That was when I changed clothes the last time on that crane and went out to the people and that was it. So it started to become harder I couldn't hit my notes. Dammit I wanted to get those nodes. And I had to really fake those notes. Somehow you know but I managed it it took every drop of energy in life out of me afterwards I took a hot bath and just laid. And then I would eat it would take really until the next. To. Restore that energy back. So I did nothing but that so that I could complete continue. Yeah. So everyone thought because it was so you were so believable onstage effortless. It looked effortless if not that I didn't enjoy it oprah I enjoy that done You know whenever I got to certain songs like simply the Baz Proud Mary are what's love got to do with it there was certain key songs, but there were certain songs in between that worked me a little bit harder to get to those ones. My idea is still if I ever go back for any reason in any way I will have to create another way. That will get people to accept it because no one ever wants to see Tina do performance any other way than that right? Well, you can't hundred, eight, hundred, ninety. So I don't think they would accept me standing in a wonderful gown singing. That's not me. Yeah. Every now and then I always loved that point where we get to problem Mary, which is always one of my favorite moments you say every now and then we want to do something nice and easy right Yeah. But.

Before beyond say and we were born Tina Turner was selling out stadiums around the world as the first black female rock and roll star. And it's no secret. I am one of her biggest fans Tina Turner is one of the greatest role models for women of any generation. Every note she sings declares I. Am here I will not be broken today at seventy three years old Tina Turner says life really is simply the best this Summer Tina married her longtime partner of nearly thirty years and I was fortunate enough to be there. To. Be a part of that big day I'm in the south of friends where Mr and Mrs. Urban Bach have been enjoying their honeymoon. We're at the most elegant grand, Hotel Cop Rod, one of the finest hotels in the world. Body. My God look at you. You are the role model for the twenty-first century thing over you.

This is this is a part of my honeymoon. Everyone says, Oprah. Knows how to pull you out of retirement and the honeymoon. Okay. So you've been on a honeymoon for a week and I wanted to ask is something you need to share with us. Are you pregnant? Are you pregnant? Of My girlfriends not don't go start having children. So I thought I knew you pretty well and then when I heard, it announced that you were going to get married. Little. We did we went. Watch and for what and for what can you answer that question? Comes a time in life and as everyone knows, I'm seventy three years old. You must put things in place I I started consolidating getting rid of property. I got rid of the House vast property in America I how they made a situation for my son's yeah anything that was costly. I totally got rid of. And then the next thing I found that. If something happened in depth for me which urban I weren't married before now he would have no say and I thought it was a bit unfair to live with someone for as long as we are. And not to give him any say yeah. Tina and urban met in Cologne Germany in one, thousand, nine, hundred, six at the time urban was a record executive and pick Tina airport before concert despite a sixteen year age difference Tina says she felt instant attraction. So every time I had talked about marriage before because he said to me didn't ask you when you when I was fifty when I was fifty years old, he asked me if I would marry with him. Oh, it was so cute and he's much younger does and I simply said I don't have an answer because it wasn't yes and it wasn't known. About marriage he said, we have to do something because if something happens to me, you can't get my money. How's that? Okay. I kinda thought like. Marriage says ownership you my wife? And I didn't want that my anything anymore and had enough of that from growing up with with my family and that situation I just wanted hands and controlled anymore didn't think that urban would. But he might've because psychologically that that law changes people's. Fouled that hasn't been the thing for me to do certain things not because you my wife well, yes, and also this what happens is that people I think traditional men feel like the word wife means something. Yeah. All right and I noticed you these at the wedding fans everybody which was great. Yeah you know sometimes. In a restaurant you see a really lady dressed very nice and she picks up the menu or something and little fan always a newly big fan as a little. Nice. Little Nicer. Little one I love this little fan always a little nicer. Planned every detail of wedding was one of the most spectacular weddings I've ever seen. More than two hundred friends and family members joined Tina and urban at their Swiss Estate Chateau Algonquin. Justice Tina envisioned the wedding was magical with personal touches from her everywhere. View. of. Tina's longtime Canadian rocker Bryan Adams performed his classic song all for love as a couple of walk down the aisle. An. Hour. Pink Armani Flower grow dresses were just the most magnificent. I've ever seen and one of my favorite details a stunning wall of roses created by celebrity florist Jeff Leith Going on when wedding invitation requested that all the guests wear white because normally you never wear white to wedding on said yes. So I knew that you must have been coming up with something spectacular you and Giorgio Armani at that dress was something I have to tell you do you have a favorite moment from that day? The day of the wedding yes. Do you have a favorite moment? Okay. I have to tell you because I started to plan January and I really gotten tired I was tired of thinking about it. I was of waiting for the day I wanted to get in the car and go to Italy before it's time. To, urban I said, you know Darling I'm GonNa, miss all of the I want to see it. So then he he started to think for me. So he said you know what if we get a place in the house or you can sit? 'n peak and look what people coming in. So your favorite memory is looking out the window and watching us all come in. So I stood in the window. And I've had an open just enough and you could see my face reacting to certain people some lab. Step bit and some was awesome. Those ladies dresses were. Everybody looks. So yes, you know it was very interesting about it and I was so absolutely honored to be there and I said at one point this feels like the great gatsby for real and it also anybody who's been an experience like that. You feel elevated by the experience feel elevated by the experience in real now. I am rock and roll I cannot envision performing any other way. By the other side of me is that elegance and that's what I wanted for that day it was not about my career, play my music or to wear hot funky close it was to wear the best I could be and that I wanted my my garden, my house and my guest to be the best.

Other neighbor to intervene us. No, because you didn't need a neighborhood, intervene when you can. Be Criminals. We don't, but it's those type of things like that is a symbolism of a bigger issue.

I don't like the lax attitude. I think because the problem the major problem that everyone agrees with about southwest is that system is so it's it's so chaotic to begin with that they sort of they should be more on top of it because they've created situation that causes that kind of confusion and that kind of is amazing and so they should be more on the ball all with their own. Let me tell you how it works because i'm the only person between this crowd and a riot because if everybody if everybody thought oh well it's fine as as long as you have on your thing and you can just come in and then there's just gonna rush to the right.

I was saying that the gym yesterday that people get stupid when they get in an airport they just like suddenly their brain flies out of their head and there's like don't know simple like how how to behave like a human being in the plane yesterday for me. I was in group one and then i had to move around people like we all did we all had to maneuver because these the people planned to themselves and so then i said i'm i'm curious as to and they were for it's like why would you get you know.

Do you like because if you don't assert yourself then you your last that's centigrade degree you kind of have to but i walked by people who had been standing there and in a way. Maybe you agree with me. It's like if you were staying there when it was group one then you're kind of an off <music>. I'm just gonna walk onto the plane good for you. You're the winner here yeah.

Which i found very interesting was he chose to there there. There are a few middle seats. He chose was to have an old lady. Get up so that he could sit in the middle seat. You didn't have to choose that seat and then his bag was like too big for the spot that he wanted to put it in and i helped him push his bag into the spot and when he turned around and i saw his face he was pleasant.

The coffee isn't iced coffee is chilled in the fridge. No puerto rice. I mean you know to make it cook cold right. Don't they sometimes just to speed things up is put a ton of ice in port over that they do.

"And Furthermore, you look like you're twelve why would anyone ever higher twelve year old to cover the news? So basically beat it get lost. You have no shot. And he just ranted at me. And it was at that moment. I was like petrified. I'm sure I didn't say anything. I was just too shocked, but I hung up the phone, and I don't know if it was immediately. But soon thereafter is like, well, wait a minute. This guy doesn't know me. He doesn't know what I made of. And it kinda brought out resiliency in me, and frankly, maybe a resilient sated, no hack. I called him every day. And I'm I'm especially that I was really shy person. But there was just something like you. I wanna have a hearing. I want you to acknowledge I exist. So one of the things that I'm fascinated by is you just said, you're shy person. And you've talked a lot about being an introverted leader. And that's been a big inspiration to Danielle. And I because our team never believes this, but we're actually both really shy people. And I think the heart one of the hardest things in doing our jobs is. Being kind of putting yourself out there to constantly meet new people to be the face of your brand or be the leader that that rallies people. And what I'm asking to by as you know, we always say we were producers for reason like it was hard for us. We didn't want to be on camera. But like you actually wanted you were trying to get a reporter job. So how do you reconcile the shyness in you to kind of aggressively pursuing role? It's a great question. I had no idea that I'd actually have to perform do that in front of the camera. Honestly back then I think I thought there were only two jobs in television, you either in front of the camera or the camera person. I had no idea until I ended up getting to NBC seeing just the range of things. So I don't think I thought that far ahead to be honest. You are no longer the the novice wannabe reporter it worked out for you little bit so Lakas through how you when you got your first leadership position when you got to NBC like how did that happen? Yeah. Well, I my first leadership position came when I actually I left NBC because I had a really. Jerk for a boss, and he was what I call a classic gatekeeper. And after trying a lot of different things to say can we work differently? Basically, it was like what are you know? And I left and went to C N N Turner. That was my first leadership job where I got to oversee a team. I think there were eight of us, and I didn't know what I was doing. It was you know, it was daunting that was my first leadership job. And there was no training manual. I none of the media companies. I work for frankly, in retrospect, did anything really to train you as a manager of people. You just kinda had to figure it out. I think that's so interesting. Your path is you've done you've had so many different roles who started off as like wanting to be a reporter than you went into comes role than obviously g into marketing marketing, and then as vice chair, I actually don't really know what that means. Let's start what is vice chair yet? Well, I it it g vice show was as much a recognition of a career path every vice chair has a different portfolio. Mine was business innovation which meant I was. I was there to lead. New new new businesses so businesses either we invested in seeded or turned around so looking for new revenue from new sources and marketing was my path to get there. So from communications really became promotion, especially in the news world, you're promoting people to watch your news. And from there got into advertising and marketing, and that that became a path to innovation it may sound strange because most people think of marketing is just what you do at the end. It's the ad. It's the trade show when in fact for us the opportunity was to bring marketing to the beginning. It was about the insights in the market. Where's the market going? So became a trend job. It became a innovation job pretty quickly. Because hey, we have existing things. We can just target them to new customers. We can drive revenue anew way. So it was pretty it. Sounds like it would be weird..
