"To hundreds of millions of dollars to go and buy a privately held company and take it public. Through that acquisition. This out, Draftkings went public just as an example. And specks have gotten very popular recently to the point where we now have an E t F with the ticker Spock that is going to track the specs. It does, And just, I think is important information here. It does not just track those shell companies have been created for this long term goal of purchasing private companies and taking the public more than 80% of those holdings are going to be cos like draftkings, Virgin Galactic, probably Nicholas that have previously used us back to go public. So again, I understand what you're owning here. You've expressed concerns about this method of going public. I think it bears just a quick lesson on Pipo versus direct listing versus this, because even I I understand how an AI Po works right? You go to a investment bank. They do their due diligence. They sell the shares to there. To their high net worth clients. Aah! And you raise a whole bunch of money for your corporation. A direct listing you go public, but you're not looking to raise money for the company. A Spack is just kind of this very strange process. To me. A Spack is effectively A group or one wealthy investors, saying, I want to buy this company and take it public onto public markets and what's really interesting here just from a Market mechanic standpoint is Think about the last decade. What if you look at the dominant trend for how the ultrawealthy wanted to invest? What words come to mind Private equity. Private equity right? Like I want to own private equity because I don't want to be in public markets. I want Teo Toby out of that view, and that's where the returns were was all about private equity. The transition to SPAC says interesting because it's the same group effectively. There would be targeting it. It's Bill Ackman going out and saying, Look, I'm raising $500 million from a bunch of wealthy investors to fund this back, and we're going to go out and buy a company to take public. The only reason that you want to take that company public is because you believe you can get better returns in the public sphere holding the company privately, and that's something that I do find interesting. Because the trend for the last decade was away from that. So the fact that investors are saying this tells you something about the shape that markets are taking now where they believe there are greater returns to be had. By being publicly traded, then privately held and I think it might speak to some delusional excitement about newly public cos it could. I mean, look, if if Yeah, because again if you think about it again, I'm just gonna use Bill Ackman is an example here. His job is very simple. It's to generate the best possible returns for The his his shareholders of his company of his, You know, private equity. Whatever. His job is to generate the best possible returns. He doesn't care how it happens. You know, he he doesn't like all he cares about is can I generate the best possible returns, And so if one of those ways is to take advantage of A publicly traded market that is Somewhat frothy, and especially in certain areas. I mean again. I've talked about how I feel like we're getting very boo Blay when it comes to Ah, TV's and what's going on there, But there are parts of this market that air just nutty Right now. There's other parts that aren't but this pack the The idea that Spaccia, the new I pose. I find interesting just in terms of what it tells me about market structure and market participants. So it's that's what I find more notable than You know how any particular companies doing? The fact that they're going? This route is what I find interesting to begin with it just the process does not have the level of scrutiny. That night. Po does. I'm not claiming that. I think Goldman Sachs is going to be upholding the public interest or doing what's in the jet. You know, general interest the public, but you can trust them to do what is right by there by there shareholders by their stakeholders, and that's where I think that extra level of scrutiny is pretty valuable. Let's see. Let's take a break, and then we'll do a couple of Google stories. I don't want to split these up, so we'll take a quick break. And then we're talking a little bit of Google right after this. Corona virus continues to have a tight grip on Wall Street, with the major averages still.
Nikola Falls Amid Growing GM Deal Doubts As New Claims Hit Founder
"This time. It's General Motors, and its deal with Nikola Philibeaux all over that story, he's on the fast line right now with the details what can you tell us bill? Dahm, we have confirmed through sources that the discussions between Nikola and General Motors. They were trying to hammer out a deal by tomorrow that was the deadline that they had set for finalizing the deal when they first announced it on September eighth but obviously given everything that has happened over the last three weeks There were a number of discussions and still our discussion between General Motors. And Nikola. Our sources tell us that they will not finalize an agreement by tomorrow. However, the discussions between the two sides continue we may see a deal announced maybe two three a week from now that's still a possibility. There's also the possibility that things could fall apart but to be clear, they will not finalize a deal by tomorrow. However, the discussions continue between GM and Nikola Dom. Alright syllabus. Thank you very much. Know you'll stay on top of that story as well for our listeners on Sirius? Xm. Who didn't see those charts what we are seeing a spike in the after hours in shares of General Motors one and a half percent on roughly eighty three, thousand shares of volume. Meanwhile, you've got a drop in shares of Nikola Oh no. Now, they've reversed around Nicholas now up five percent after falling about that equal amount just. About five minutes ago about half a million shares of volume there for Nicholas. So a very volatile trade in the after hours session relatively for general, motors and Nikola. So let's talk a little bit more about this and maybe care and I'll go to you for this one here. This is a story that made a lot of waves because of the HINDENBURG research report, the short-selling side of things on nickel and trevor. Milton. It cost him his job. Is. General Motors. Still a stock that you want to invest in if they are making strategic types of investments like in Nikola. I'm long General Motors. So the answer would be yes. I, liked the Nikola deal for them before of the HINDENBURG. came out of but I think that. Negotiated a final deal yet I think GM hold every single card here. So we may see a very different deal a deal that's even better for GM than the one that they originally announced clearly. Nikola. Is You know still even if they do it, it's a bit of a black guy for GM and that due diligence couldn't possibly have been. Have unearthed everything in the HINDENBURG report, but I think it's an interesting Jill for GM. They can get a better deal than they cut originally and so I think. Let's see how it plays out. It'll be. Either really good for them or the walk away with a little bit of an embarrassment but having put no money up at all I think they'll just have to go on and look for the next product that hopefully will reinvest will invigorate e-business.

The Glass I Love and the Glass I Use
"This is digital story podcast number seven, Fifty, eight September Twenty Ninth Two Thousand Twenty today's a theme is the glass I love and the glass I use. I'm Derek Story. No doubt one of the best investments any artists can make. is in quality photography lenses and I do have some beauties. But what's fascinating to me is that I have lenses that I absolutely love and would be very reluctant to let go up and then I have those optics that are used on a daily basis. and. The funny thing is the two aren't always the same. I'll explain why on today's TVs photography podcast. So. Before I get into that glass itself, it's funny when I was writing this podcast made me think of a scene from moonstruck really terrific movie with share and Olivia Caucus Nicholas Cage. Just an outstanding story in great cast the whole deal. So share comes home one night and I think her mom was up in her bedroom. And share went into say good night tour after she had seen Nicholas Cage, she had started seeing him. And her mom you. Ask her what she's been doing and share told her. And her mom Olivia Dukakis Goes D love them and share goes Ma I think I do. And Olympia Dukakis goes I'm so sorry. I'm not exactly sure why I'm thinking of that story while I'm thinking about these lenses that I love and the ones that I like. Other than I think what Olympia Dukakis was saying is that when you love them, you end up having this attachment. That you stick with through thick and thin whereas if you just like them maybe a right thing start to go south and you're okay with partying ways and you know these lenses. I'm going to talk about a kind of fall into these two categories and it was fascinating to me because. I think going through my inventory because I'm not shooting as much right now because for obvious reasons, all my jobs are higher are no more right now I do find myself going back. Into, my inventory and just making sure the cameras are working. You know just checking things just keeping everything ready so that when life comes back I'm ready to go. and. I've discovered Dan I have lenses that I'm using right now. I use them all the time and then I'll come across a lens in the Lens Safe and I go oh, I love this land so much but maybe haven't shot with it for a month two months three months but yet I wouldn't let go of that Lens basically no matter what and maybe the lenses I'm using everyday right now Okay. Go. That's Kinda weird. Isn't it? It's kind of very interesting. You know what I'm GonNa do today is I'm going to talk about five lenses and I'm not gonNa tell you. which category they go into rather the like or left category I'm just gonNA describe the lenses can have you guess along the way and then at the end I'll tell you the answers. Okay. So we're going to have a little fun today to illustrate that point I. WanNa to tell you about one lens from my past that I definitely loved, and that was the Canon e F eighty, five, millimeter f one eight and I bought this lens decades ago I mean back when I was shooting weddings with a else Alon thirty five millimeter film camera, I bought that lands. About three hundred, fifty dollars then which is a fair of change you know when you're just getting started with your career but at the same time, it was more affordable than other lenses this class. And I mean, I just love the short shortely because it was fast F. One point eight it was light. had very quiet focus the ultrasonic motor was just terrific on it was a good looking land. And most importantly, it took great pictures I mean really great pictures. In fact, one of the metal prints that I have hanging in the studio downstairs was captured with that lens on a cannon five D in Washington DC. and. Hanging on the wall downstairs. Then you know you are in rarefied Erica's that's the stuff I have to look at every day. In a better be good. Alright. That'd be good. that. Lands is responsible for that shop. Here's the funny thing as much as I loved that Lens I didn't shoot with it that often. I mean normally I would have zoom on the camera body I in the film days. But then even later on when I got the five d and the five d mark to I'd have something on there like the e F twenty, four to one. Oh, five, a four and. That's what I shot with most of the time. And then every now, and then for some reason, sometimes, I didn't even really know why I would pull out the eighty five f one eight and I go sheet with that or I'm going to put it in my bag today or whatever candidates cradle it carefully and said it in there. And then when I shot with it, it was always just sort of this wonderful experience and I go. Wow that's a kind of an interesting phenomenon how this went with this lens

So getting into the classes that took a whole week to figure that out. But now it's just a question of what's actually what is actually doing with. In the classes and weather's actually. Getting anything out of it and in doing any schoolwork that they're trying to. Get them to do remotely I was going into his. Google classroom account with him going through the different subjects already seeing all these assignments piling up that were done and. And it was hard to tell which them really needed to be done which ones didn't We started working wine and social studies and it turns out the link that he needed to read to answer questions about it. He didn't have that Lincoln War we link had been in a in a chat with the teacher, and that chat was no longer accessible associates endless. It's deeply unworkable for for lots. Children's lots of children especially children in a situation like his. Yeah. When do you think your kids in? Shimmer we'll be back in school. Well the bomber schools said, they would reassess in mid October. the superintendent is clearly very eager to reopen in some form but there is there is this incredibly strong resistance from the Union they're actually. This week outside school system headquarters to demand. not reopening until January earliest Is it notable to you that a lot of these decisions? They seem to be being made for reasonable reasons like not through malice. I wonder if you look at the story. Like, do you see a villain here? I see lots of villains starting, of course with trump and his and his failure to control the virus. But I I also think we have to be honest about one other factor that is that has been driving these closures in blue cities and towns, and that is the fact that for a lot of Democrats liberals covert has become something of a metaphor for trump. We see them as one and the same thing his because his failure, his failure to control Cova dismayed it so much worse for us. The scarier that covert is the scarier we see covert as being the greater his failure in controlling it. They've they've become kind of sort of equal in our minds synonymous and so I do believe that to some extent. The risk of covert and the risk of covert and schools has been magnified and blue cities and towns because we have. So linked it with with trump himself. And I suspect that if trump were to lose the election that very quickly a lot of these places, we'd start to see a different approach to the school question In fact, really you think it's that simple. I do believe that that there's that dynamic and ended. There was an l. a school official said as much there. There was a recording of a call that came out official said look we're I don't think we're going to reopen. But I think I think after the election, we can start talking about her life and. There is that I. Think we have to be honest about that political dynamic. You do a little bit of storytelling about the history of universal education in the. United. States in in your article. I wondered why you thought it was important to go that far back and tell that story. At the same time, you're telling the story of Shimmer and remote learning and Baltimore I. I felt it necessary to go that far back because I Would I would. I saw happening here in the big picture way was that we were. Putting at risk universal education in America that we were really at risk of returning to to the early nineteenth century. Before, we created what we what were then called the common schools. This comment public school system. Across the north in the mid. West. In the mid nineteenth century that was really kind of a marvel of the world was one of the first countries to to set up A. A real postal system that most children attended and that was supported by taxes that had You know some kind of real statewide system wide organization and was so integral to American democracy in American self government that we have kind of system. If you have kids actually going to school and some kinds of schools. But. Not Actually going to school in other cities and other kinds of schools. That's that's getting closer to the longer being universal education And it really bothers me when I see some people say and I've seen a simple ends of the political spectrum. Well, you know what's the big deal here? You know these these urban schools we all know they have lots of problems in lots of inequities and and. Is. It really that good. He'll of kids are no longer actually going to them and I've seen that I've seen that argument and and. I think wow, like you step back and think about that. Apply that argument to some some other area Playa. To to food, you know we know a lot of. Poor folks there diets really really lousy you know and really unhealthy. To really that big a deal they don't eat eat anymore right now. serious like it's it's it's a pretty striking argument to make. I would argue that and I think a lot of the education experts I spoke to argue that. That schools even the most. `perfect underfunded. Struggling, schools still provide a whole lot to children that they're not getting right now when that home in dark rooms. Alec Nicholas Thank you so much for joining me. Thanks. Thanks for doing.

"In our live event and it's number three in draw down food waste is such a huge problem and. To the extent that we can create systems to alleviate this because I think we're just relying on us like not throwing away our scraps like never gonNa work but know that case study in San Francisco where there's businesses that incentivize people to make sure that that food ends up in a compostable been, and that been goes to a certain place where they can process this and create compost I think is amazing. It's not businesses it's the government. The government makes up my chosen in the bay area and they have it in all it's it's. Grown from San Francisco across the bay area and you get fined for putting right can do some makes that point? Yeah. Like you don't you you only you pay when you screw up right Yes. So you pay a fine if you're compostable food waste ends up in the trash or in the recycle Bin and so and you get up, you get you get money back. You pay less if you don't have that much in your black trash bags and the trash bins are tiny, they're always slender things right there like you when you go to. Go to Europe you're up in the trash bins are all tiny. That you like how you live this way.

Not to be I I am ninety, four, ninety, five, percent plant based says an eater but I'm just saying that one of the solutions to instead of using large Kafe Os and people feeding on on red meat and chicken, which is really bad for the climate. Is Idea that if you pump if people ate more fish and you grew the fish in a way that sustainable, then you can draw down carbon. That's why it's in in drawdown but the idea for tropical forests sixty one Gigi tons part of that again goes back to Real bio-diversity and what bite oversee does when you leave a place alone, right? Cool. All right. We ready to move on radio move on. What are you WanNa get into you WANNA get into that. You have a hot take on another NETFLIX's. Doc. Do My octopus teacher, my octopus teacher. You to see my octopus teacher great I. Love My teacher. This is turning into a documentary film review podcast the last time. Next time, we're not going why I'm not watching anymore documentaries for at least a month, but this is good because we need. These water cooler moments like these. These are movies that we can all see that are accessible to all of us and it gives us in there and I love these movies I like talking about them. There's another good documentary that comes out next week that's coming up on the PODCAST. I'M GONNA text. Wait my octopus teacher. Is Basically, what we what my friends and I have been doing for it is years. Doom. Felt like. This movie was made for me. I feel first of all, my friends are still going out to the reef almost every day and they're sending me images and it's It is a little bit depressing to not be able to go out but obviously, I've I have bigger things on my plate and I'm holding I'm holding a creature. Versus I should say, sorry to interrupt to interject when we talk about swimming around the reef the first time I went and did this with you. I'm used to going out with a group of people and hammering. You know we're we're swimming. This is a workout and I go out with you and you've got a scuba mask on and I'm like what is happening here? This is not the. Open water through that I'm used to know, and then you're just diving to the bottom, and this is like we're taking our time and I was like we're looking at. What? I gotta get my swimming. And then. Finally. After like thirty minutes of this, I was like okay I get it like this is just something totally different for. Forget about your workout. We're here to smell the roses. It's very smeller we and I didn't realize that actually at the time because until I started going to this hit jam and started doing swimmer I didn't realize how much I wasn't getting shape with my swims I used to think about was getting me in shape like five times a week. Getting and it sewn zero. Literally, zone zero, you can not get in shape swimming the way we do or the way Craig Craig Foster does who's this You know he's a wildlife photographer that has that that is from South Africa, and the idea is that he's he's having a midlife crisis. Basically, he's having a emotional breakdown and he decided to go back to his family's Beach House on the cliffs of the most amazing coastline, all of Africa. And he swims every day and he meets an octopus who teaches them the ropes, but it's it's very similar to what we do is we go down and we swim in the reef and we see the animals and it is. So in that way, it touched me and the angle and he is gifted photographer like his own footage that is kind of uniform. It's unbelievable So that's the kind of basis. Let's hear the right. It's a beautiful movie and it does such an elegant job. Of creating this connectivity with the natural world and the mysteries of the natural world and how much there is for us to learn like it's humbling. It's like this beautiful mainline injection of humility like we think we know what's going on and in truth we don't, and there's so much beauty and majesty and mystery right in front of us if we just slow down and take the time to pay attention you know and that's a big part of what I got out of it. Yeah.

Nikola founder quits amid fraud allegations
"Of electric vehicle maker Nicola are sliding after the resignation of its founder and executive chairman. The stock is down more than 17%. Today. Let's see what's going on. Jeff Gilbert is here. CBS Auto reporter based in Detroit. Jeff, What's going on with Nicola? You know Nikola was a darling of Wall Street. Just a few years ago. Nickel, Of course, the first name of inventor Nikola Tesla. So, obviously you got that comparison right to begin with. They want to make an electric pick up front. Wall Street thought it was great. GM thought it was great, so they made a $2 billion investment in that company. And now all of a sudden, there are allegations against the chairman. He leaves and he was replaced by somebody with very close ties to General motors and explain that connection because GM obviously has a lot riding on this exactly. Two weeks ago, GM announced that it's taken an 11% stake in the company work. $2 billion. They didn't pay a billion dollars to billion dollars, but they're going to let Nikola produced their vehicle in in a GM facility. Well, one of the board members of Nicholas, a man named Steve Girsky, who had been a General Motors vice here, There are many reports that he's a man who actually orchestrated the deal and now as Nicholas CEO and founder, or whether chairman and founder leaves Girsky becomes the new chairman of Nicholas. So it's a very interesting tie up that connects him a lot more closely to General Motors. And the hope. Of course, on the part of investors is that the technology is what Nicholas says. It's going to be, and also that they're going to be able to actually produce this stuff. Exactly, And that was a concern raised by an investor who said that he didn't feel they really had the technology behind some of their claims. GM defended them, They said. They did their due diligence, and GM is giving them a place to produce his vehicle. They haven't said yet, so GM does and some gravitas for lack of a better word. To Nikola, but still got a lot of investors concerned. I haven't seen the latest numbers, but the stock has really been falling today. Yeah, it's down about 17.5%. So a significant fall for sure. Thank you so much. That is Jeff Gilbert, CBS Auto reporter based in Detroit.

The confusing world of potting mix ingredients
"There is a huge and confusing world of blunt potting mixes out there. You've ever stood in the garden center. bags and not quite sure what to buy. Then I'm here to help and I've elicit another expert to odd that up on the matter my guest this week missed a house plot. Ak Vlada Nicholas Cage is a house plant care specialist from Washington, D. C. With a huge following on Instagram, and he also makes them pretty awesome tiktok videos to I. I came across him via a wonderful Tiktok where he was doing a matchup between computer games and House Plant Care, which is absolutely brilliant. Open link to that in the show notes because we're GONNA be doing some decoding of posing mixes I'm working out exactly what you need I. Guess. The first question is, do you need to make your own bespoke potting mixes from individual ingredients or can I buy something off the shelf? Here's missed the house plans thoughts on the matter. There are two general types of wanting me sold out there. You have mixed plants for succulents and CACTI. We'd succulent Yes. The lot of them are good in you could use straight out of the bag. However with tropical makes in most cases for most Hobby House from growers. This use some extra of the bag. The main reason is most of these commercial makes or not or. Yes. It's all about the holes. POROSITY is really important concept to grasp when it comes to choosing your house plant potting mixes and the truth is that not all hose grated equal in soil water narrow held in for spacey's in between particles in these horse can be different sizes. We can generally classify his micro pores or lower floors in microprocessors smokers. These breweries they're often leads it to the naked eye while Mike reports are not in my reporters important for who who'd area because they hold oxygen. Whereas Mike reporters are important for absorbing holding water so It's important to maintain both adequate. In water supply for all planned growth in a city to have both micro in. In the soil. In when they say the most policies aren't enough. They don't have a lot of these reports. They don't provide a lot of Austin for the roads. In order to have a good solid structure, it has both micro might reports you need a goods ratio of small medium, large particles in particles of different sizes. Probably most commercial mixes the problem is a they contained mostly Moss, which consists of very fine particles. So you'd have only only fine particles the slow only pretend micro voice, which means it will retain water. You won't have a lot of oxygen into also compact very easily. If you've listened tonight sustainability episodes, then hopefully, you'll have some awareness of the sustainability issues that are surround Pete and its use in house plan compost. But it remains the fact that many many production nurseries still supply their house plants in potting mixes that contain an extremely high level of Pete. So how come those nurseries can grow plants the look amazingly lush and well but when we get those plants into our homes with and don't change the potting mix they start to struggle well, fortunately Vlad's on hand to explain that as well when a plant is getting locked to light it photosynthesis more and as a result three, pulling more water from the soil. What this means, the roots will not be sitting in west, salt for a long time. So the chances overthrow brought will be low. And this is why plant nurseries can grow in these next. Nurseries provide huge amounts of light. They have ruled stay have walls made out of glass. Fifty Times more than the plants in our homes. So nurseries actually need party makes they retain a lot of water which is why they can use these leaks. Straight out of the bag, but the problem with growers is bid. We don't have this salon life in our homes and. Most people even if they do have a lot of wife. Did Not provide to their clans is deeply usually choose plan place from based on that where to look good noth- according to how much light is to get in a plant doesn't get a good amount of lights it will synthesize less and. Pulling less water from the soil meaning, they will be sitting sweat soil longer and increase. Should you be changing the soil on your new house plants? The me get them home from the nursery. This is a subject of enormous debate in various house plant forums. But here's Vlad take plants in nurseries. They usually go through periods of very. Intense growth and the soil that the coming could be. Deficient imaging by the time you get them. So if plans is Lutheran deficiency, of course when giving new so soon as you can continue developing well, also there is accumulation of salts in the soil over time, they will burn the roads. So the longer you leave a plan inside soil more damaging will have on the roads. So If a plant needs to be deported usually. Again.
US justice department inquires into Nikola fraud claims
"They are under pressure because it appears there are now two agencies that are investigating Nikola this afternoon to reports one from Dow Jones one from the F. T. saying that the Department of Justice specifically, the US Attorney's Office for the southern. District of New York has made inquiries to Nikola regarding the fraud claims. By the way we have reached out Nikola. No comment at all. We've been unable to hear anything back from the company regarding this report of the DOJ investigating company remember yesterday the report came out that the S. E. C. is also looking into these fraud claims surrounding Nikola Nikola for its part says look we. Reached out proactively last Friday to the SEC and we said look we want you to look into these claims that were made. By Hindenburg, research those claims about forty three of them essentially saying that this is an intricate fraud that Nikola is perpetrating here and that basically investors are on the hook again, what you heard from Nikola not only on Friday, but also on Monday was a refuting of those claims from Hindenburg but today Enberg double down issuing another report basically saying we view Nicholas response as a tacit admission of securities fraud that tacit admission is because one of the claims from Hindenburg research was that a semi truck. That was filmed by Nikola back in two thousand seventeen was not actually propelling itself. It was being rolled down a hill. It was in motion. It was not an actual driving vehicle showing your General Motors because General Motors has said look we did appropriate diligence when it comes to looking into Nikola before striking the deal where General Motors takes an eleven percent stake. Nikola will have its badger electric pickup truck built by General Motors That's the latest in terms of what we have at this point Melissa. But what's interesting here is we have heard nothing nothing at all from the chairman of Nikola Trevor Milton and these two investigations you have to wonder if this takes away the real oxygen that has pushed this stock higher over the last month and that's Trevor Milton on social media
HOT SMOKED HERRING recipe with Niklas Ekstedt
"I'm Nicholas extent. I'm a chef and restaurateur in Stockholm and I run a small little restaurant in the very very center of Stockholm called X. that smile. So it's often my second name so easy. I've chosen this recipe because it's very close to my heart. And it's something that I. Very much love and it's herring. When I was a kid growing up, we always had herring once a week and it was usually something we had in the end of the week like a Friday or Thursday and in Sweden. We also always eat herring as the starter for big celebrations. If it's for midsummer Christmas or eastern, it's always herring and fresh potatoes were small potatoes. This one of chosen because it has a very personal touch to it. So it's hot smoked herring and when I hope smoke stuff, it's a higher temperature I always use birch, but you could do this with. As. Well. So imagine yourself that you're smoking in your regular barbecued could be one of those American similar round grills. So what you would do, you could actually use charcoal and you could add something like juniper branches of Oak or something to it. So you need heat but you also need smoke. And then you just put the herring into the grill and then you let it cook in the hall smoke. What's really good if you have the time is to take the herring out of the refrigerator while before you put it into the ground because otherwise the cold fish will cool down the grilled. So it's nice if you have it room temperature for this recipe will also need little bit of salt. What I do is when I lined the fish in the grill, let the smoke coming I put the little bit of salt on. Top. And I serve the hauled smoked herring with clams and carrots. So when the fish depending on the size of the Haringey could be like approximately fifteen to twenty minutes depending on on the smoke. If it's not done, you can just leave it in the grill until it falls off the bone. And then during that time just clamps or you could cook muscles with it as well. Just Cook them regularly like a moon with some white wine, some onions, and then sometimes I can put some vegetables in there may be carrots or cauliflowers well, and then you serve the cooked clamps with the hot smoked herring. It's so good. It's one of the favorite things right now actually in the fall time. So that's my recipe smoked herring with class.

"Hey there. So today's conversation is a little bit different than any. We have eric it absolutely is to conversations recorded or months apart my guess. Nicholas. Palmquist. Denser teacher choreographer he has performed and choreographed for stage TV places like Netflix's Saturday night live the tonight show the Tonys as well as feature films growing up in a small town in Missouri it wasn't easy to be a young male dealer until he discovered a place of refuge in local dance studio and the community around that eventually making his way to New York, city Nicholas took a very different approach to creating a career stepping into more. Of a choreography and teaching role. He has toured the world awakening everyone from professionals to kids to movement music and possibility will also leading Pat classes at the iconic steps on Broadway Dance School in New York and beyond his mesmerizing and really joy for choreography he decided to do something a bit radical. He brought cameras into the classroom and shared these mini performances with a giant community on Instagram Latte. In fact, is how I I discovered him when my daughter shared a clip of him dancing to the WHO's Baba o'riley both are huge fans of, and that was much of the focus of our original. Conversation in the beginning of March then the pandemic hit crippling New York City we decided to hold this episode to hold that earlier conversation for a bit for a time when people could gather in person again and be with him again in his New York City classes will we all know what happened next? We're nowhere close to that moment and in the intervening time other things happen we have experienced a renewed national awakening to racial injustice violence privilege and protests with so much change. I asked Nicholas to convene for a follow up conversation which we taped just last week in today's episode is actually these. Two conversations that unfolded for months apart the first one that happened in our studio in early March just before New York City shut down and the second one taped a few days ago. That capture is a really powerful shift in Nicholas one that he has been moving through an a window of fierce reexamination of who he is, what he has been doing why he has been doing it and how is making really powerful changes to the way. He choreographs dances and investors energy in expanding access to this incredible artform. Really excited to share with you today I'm Jonathan fields and this is good life project. I discovered you and your work I. Think it was when We in eighteen year old daughter and I schooled her in the ways very young of the. WHO. And she stumbled upon your cliff on instagram where you're like and she's like dad got to see this. It's amazing that really is amazing because that's like how many generations they're. They're enjoying enjoying the music and I find that music is half the battle. You find a good song then the classes. Yeah. When you're looking for that, is it about the lyrics matter as much as the actual music on? Lyric Guy Yeah definitely. Not I actually I have a really vivid memory of being in college and my friend I was driving and drumming along to like the one of my favorite parts of the song. I've never noticed that in this music and he was like you always drumming out the weirdest parts of the song I'm singing along and yeah I I can never remember lyrics but I definitely always the music for sure and sounds like your like your era goes to. A place that a lot of people don't notice in the song is it like Quirky interesting things your hoax or read I you know it's I think it's just emotional things. I'm trying to listen to music differently I think the parts that stick with me in the songs that stick with me are are always kind of emotional. So it's I think nostalgic based whether the WHO is an example or anything the eagles I grew up listening to my dad had one tape and Literally would not come out. We all make fun of for and he's like, but now you all love it. You're all. That's my brothers and I are all with eagles greatest hits albums. It's like how many notes do you actually have to hear before he can identify exactly what it is right it's like, yeah I have listened to music a lot. So I don't I don't necessarily think that like a talented year as much as like. Studious one. But. When I kind of react to a part of the music that I just listened to it over and over. Personify it. So it's visceral thing for you. It's like an emotional. It's like there's something that just reacts to Yeah I, think I was always like kind of dancing like that. You Know I. I was trying to make my own solo those trying to guide my teachers to give me what I wanted to do and kind of how hearing music and didn't always pan out but I always them. I always loved it for sure. So when does this touch on your life because then a you grew up in Missouri small town grew up in a small town born in Minnesota how smallish? I think like thirty, five, hundred people I said. I mean when I was there we didn't have a walmart we have since been kind of upgraded. We've got a Walmart but no movie theaters snow. No real like entertainment things I think after high school we would. Hang out sonic and just talk which is you know fun. But yeah, very small, very small town not do siblings, four brothers and a sister. Family to yeah. So your town basically made up ten percent you're. Totally I know we should've had buildings name. Yeah, my older sister dance an all of my brothers played instruments. So I think that's also where my attachment to music really comes from my mom loved it. She always wanted music in the house. So a brother was either playing piano guitar drums and some room of the House my whole life and my sister danced I did karate gymnastics and I think the introduction of to that coordination watching her dance. I was like, Oh that's the thing that I really kind of missing. So we she kind of like the gateway then totally. Yeah I I. Actually I went to one of her dance competitions and I saw this all guy. Jazz number two smokin in the boys room and I literally was like mom I want to do that and now the convention that I teach for bj hawks. Is The guy that kind of runs the backstage seven he was one of the guys in that not telling that story to somebody wants out of dance competition and it was all guy, number? And I in in who we somehow figured out that it was him and that is circle in that way but. I was really. Captivated by my sisters. Love of it. You know like she was my cool high school sister and offer friends had so much fun and so when I started, she was graduating. So we never really got to do together but she was definitely my introduction to yes I mean it's interesting also is was Is it growing up in a small? I was a gymnast when I was a kid also not cool. No totally you know and and I suffered it because of that we were Neil they made fun of constantly we were wearing tights on we competed. And so you started out there and. When you when you certainly bridge that gap to dance did you take any heat for sort of like for what you are interested in oh? Yeah. Yeah. My whole life and like when I first started, I told people I took hip hop even though is taking ballet tap and jazz. It was more socially acceptable to hip hop and I did take hip hop and I was pretty good at it I. I liked it. But that was kind of what my my beard was if you will that kind of made it somewhat okay for people. I remember like telling one of my my really close friends once I came in I gotta be honest with you like I do other stuff too like I do ballet and jazz like do you want to get something to eat you know very unfazed by but it was really hard. You know I think I think even the people that loved and supported me didn't quite know how to love and support a male in the art form. So people are constantly telling me to be more tough and to be more this and that and out of love you know they were trying to say like if you dance like this, it'll be better for you. And so I think..

"Nicholas moulder noted that the idea of a war economy has come to mean many things productivity sacrifice reform solidarity and resourcefulness and that the rhetoric of wartime idealism spills over into economic policy I can have an impact lasting long after the armistice is signed Nicholas welcome to the show thanks very much for having me wrote you wrote war economies don't suspend politics they raise the stakes that's right right now for example when you look at approval ratings trump's approval ratings have gone up a bit and in many other democracies the approval ratings of incumbent leaders have gone up to so it seems like a huge incumbency advantage but only time will tell whether of the corona virus crisis will provide a lasting political benefit because it's exactly because people now seem to have put a lot of faith in leaders that these leaders can also squandered that trust much more quickly so I think that what seems to be a kind of rallying around the flag effect could very quickly turn into mass disillusionment you wrote that there is a tendency for more progressive policies to come out of work on it means I'm not convinced your skepticism is very understandable because four sweet assisted them with this fact where politics is sort of suspended and everyone just agrees to do with the government tells them but if we actually look at both World War one and World War two that was a little old what came out of those wars in fact the organization of militancy of labor also the claims of veterans of windows disenfranchised groups like African Americans in the United States made much larger claims to participation in society afterwards forces are unleashed in a wartime economy is that even governments that have conservative politics we'll find it quite difficult to restrain but writing in dissent last week historian Tim Barker did you read that piece yes he urged us to stay away from war analogies or more to the point to stay away from using national security as a basis for action because it could also be used as a rationale for even more draconian immigration policies for xenophobia do you worry when we pull the lever that is so associated with the real war to markers arguments is very cute about warning about the dangers and and I agree with that I would just differ slightly from him in emphasizing that we currently are of course not in a war I've actually been quite surprised that it has taken so relatively long for trump and trump is to turn corona virus into arguments against immigration I would have thought they would have done that much more quickly but even as they are doing that they're still reliance on China and other east Asian countries are now for providing supplies last Sunday there was a big error lift of supplies from East Asia that arrived at JFK of Moscow's gloves thermometers and I think that that was already happening in the verse one and two which are remembered as moments of increased nationalism of course none of national self reliance and self sufficiency but in fact already at that point there were very globalized supply chains and even the American war efforts was dependent not just on the raw materials from abroad so Robert from Latin America and Africa and Asia ten aluminium in center of America was using its productive base in order to build equipment that the rest of the world used in order to fight fascism that's something that right now interestingly is kind of inverters were in it lendlease in reverse situation because most of the production of medical equipment happens in East Asia and so both the United States and Europe are having to rely on an average now that is being established from East Asia to Europe and the United States we're still in a very international moment it's just that the flows are going in the other direction this time you wrote that this wasn't so much a problem of prioritizing X. Bender chairs are limited resources the big issue in this case maybe the unique issue is sustaining circulation when people are locked down you call this the ventilation or butter di Lemah as opposed to the old guns and butter one could you fill that out for me the old dilemma of guns and butter is essentially about priority what do you do when you have a limited set of resources and you must choose in the short term to spend them on defense on military production that's the gums park or on civilian production at that's better now a lot of people have been arguing that what we face now is this choice between saving lives and restarting the economy what we're really dealing with here is whether we can freeze the economy for as long as is needed to control the virus or sacrificed enormous amounts of lives to continue with the circulation and that's why I called and ventilation or butter because whether we keep the economy on a sort of life support or want to continue production and circulation at all costs you said that the war itself will not necessarily give us what we want politically for the future but we can see that it creates a common morality but for how long if you look at what works to the kind of moral economy that came out of that conflict the idea that when people have to mobilize to confront a common threats they have to put their lives on the line fighting or they have to put their neighbor forego wage increases for growth freedoms that they have in peacetime then they will also Dimond a look back forward when that situation ends World War two created a kind of moral order that I think persisted for decades in the United States and when it came to burden sharing redistribution what sort of public services our Jeanne normal and general and shared the end of that order didn't come until the late seventies and early nineteen eighties it persisted for four decades after the war so I think that the changes can be quite long lost but I mean you're looking at our government now right at president trump and this Congress you think that this crisis and this use of wartime economic policies can ignite a similar sense of responsibility from them I think it's important to look beyond trump in this regard having the right institutions and policies also matters and I still think that there is a lot that we can do that will be in place for the next president I find it very difficult to predict what the ultimate political upshot of this crisis will be for politics but it's certain that the challenge of climate change is exactly the kind of long run problem for which we need to state capacity state capacity that this crisis has exposed is missing in the United States the point of building a strong health care and planning and administrative states is that you have a well functioning government no matter who's in power thank you very much thank you very much for having me on birth Nicolas molders in economic historian at Cornell University his article in foreign policy is called the corona virus war economy will change the world one other thing worth saying it's just there's this expression that we're all Keynesians in a foxhole so the ideas of John Maynard Keynes and which was basically the idea out underneath a lot of war economics in the welfare state because we all you know even people who normally don't panic governments and state action in an emergency situation will intervene in order to save themselves using the power of government and the state George Orwell once said never use a metaphor simile or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in print he said worn out metaphors have lost all of market power and are merely used because they save people the trouble of inventing phrases for themselves we asked listeners which coronavirus metaphors were dominating when they happened when French president Emmanuel.

It's a lot watch any video of Nicholas Cage Free Coutts Film. Half of them are from Vampire's kiss. Yeah you see that. Entire movie him going what we refer to as full cage. Yeah absolutely and he does that and most movies but this was the early like him kind of hard. Harnessing his His Art of the freak out like in the movie was refining. Yes refining the freak out because the freakout in Vampire's kiss is so rawal. Oh yeah it's brutal. He's going fucking eleven the entire time even when he's sitting and not doing anything you see him vibrating in the Katie Cocaine. Also eighty so he was very nice. He was harmonize harmonizing with with his environment. A frequency. Thank you Shane. I feel like even to this day. Nicholas cage is Li lives on a totally different frequency than the rest of humanity. I'm just I'm just saying oh absolutely fucking vibrates only been letting up the heartbeat of hummingbird. Yeah that's that's the frequency operates on so you're saying the Nicholas cage is multidimensional animal just graced our presence in our dimension. His fucking Act Beckley is operating on a different level. A It's not. It's not multi dimensional. But he understands stuff we don't now. I would agree in that knowing. Oh yeah with his acting oftentimes. I'm not sure if I'm enjoying it or hating it. That's it's enjoyment. That's why it came back where I just recently preparing for this re watched conair which I haven't seen maybe twice before this before having to prepare. What's the thing is I forgot? The Dave Chappelle is in it the Danny Johnny. Whatever hearts what was that? There's a lot of Very good actor. John Malkovich bad love. Forget John Malkovich. Plays Bubba gump. Is John Malkovich and the thing is that. That's actually what centered me while watching the movie is that Nicholas Cage is under Nicholas. Caging for most of the movie but like Malkovich is all talking going full Malkovich. That's another episode is is Malkovich not on the same over the cage. But they're close to the. They're on vibrations very similar to each other where he can gift demand. Hess money. Just you sound like a weird right. The routers what God's Christ I will shoot everybody who doesn't listen to me. I'm alka bitch first thing. I want to say those. We're talking about You know to get our Mount Rushmore Malkovich. It would be a great episode because motherfucker has crushed his in his career. He's also done some terrible fucking move. Yes we talk about those too but I'm going to say the first time I saw cage. We have here is kind of go on the floor with his career down the down the line was face off and I remember. I remember watching as a kid like oh John Travolta's in this cool. 'cause I really know new cage was I was like thirteen right. And Are we going to get a face off because like yeah? Let's go and like I remember watching it and I'm like what the fuck I remember as a kid and thirteen and wait. What the fuck am I watching? This is insanity about the fact that face off and conair pretty much came out back to back. That was like I think summer ninety ninety seven six literally like a month from Woo. Yeah so you watch lucky. Connor long hair kinda quotes southern accent cage and then you get a month later. Wackadoo doodle fucking Balkars fucking cage. I want to just send her on. One specific thing that makes face off a timeless treasure a national treasure. If you will that again it's too over actors you've got. Nicholas fucking cage And he got Josh Joan funding so we yeah Scientology Ryan to act like each other. So you got John Travolta being like. Oh you beautiful young missed that face and just doing John Travolta as Nicholas Cage. And then you've also got Nicholas cage trying to both underactive also overact John Travolta at the same time and I feel like there were scenes where you saw their brains smoking trying to do that. It's both horrifying and fucking incredible. I'm you had John Malkovich and connor that I like playing a psychopath and all rights and not the psychopath of Steve buscemi whose serial killer which also which also well done got away at the world on Sunday. Yeah but you had John Malkovich and fucking their cage. Combating each other on. Who can be the most crazy? Well Yeah Nick Cage fucking stolen with his fucking mullet him. The Wind Scott Sir. About now he he. He was not bald. He was not John. Malkovich was receding really hard. I offense that I have. You looked at my dome recently We can have a widow's peak off if you want. You might win but not by win for having hair. Yeah well what face off though? It's almost like both Nick Cage android assigned for the movie just because of Castor Troy. Like they knew they would have to be the whatever. The good guy character is over acting like. Because you see John Travolta has to hold it in so much till the face off then and you get all Nicholas Cage and the fucking priest. Alford fucking dancing grabbing chicks asses banging grabbing watching the scenes. Being like just wait. Just wait out your face and I get to overact to all seen any know. Exactly what I'm talking about in the PRE staff. Now imagine those two actors being over thought actors being onset. Well that's filming and then then watching you think I act like battling back in because they have to act like each other on era of Nicholas cage spending want one hundred percent has been like written down like in articles and recorded one million dollars a day that he recorded our face off in the mid to late nineties spending one million dollars a day that line from I think in face off the white album or something that he was going to buy the White Alba's wrong. It's the Rock. Yeah that is he did by the white album. And he like obsessed with the Beatles Elvis Presley and all this other shit and was buying like first pressings. And all this Oh. His collection is legendary. Yeah seriously what? He hadn't seen half of them the bottom and the sewerage. Yeah but he has apparently one of the he or had piggy missile superman but yeah he picked up some of the hardest defy comics. I mean I just started away. Well yeah he's well if you have a million dollars a day to spend. Yeah and that's why you end up in the late. Two thousands of making stuff like the humanity bureau. Well some of my favorite Nick Catch. Murphy's just off the wall while shed man that's that's kind of where he's coming into now and this is a good way to kind of set it up before we go into the break is that We've got the eighties cage. Which is him raising raising Arizona girl? Yes and he's doing some stuff and even when he's overacting he's actually genuinely trying like he's doing his thing and then you've got the nineties where he goes from leaving Las Vegas where he won an Oscar for that. I believe yes.

"Where that was? That wasn't necessarily the case And so very quickly I was like. Oh Yeah it's here you're estra logical work. Eventually drew the attention celebrities and major publications. Today you have more than three hundred thousand followers on instagram over a million monthly readers on your website eight you keep your celebrity client list private but can you talk a little bit about the reading that you did for Liz. Oh because it was conducted live. What was that like for you? Can you talk a little bit about her chart only guidelines those so incredible she just is such a beautiful example of what it is to really live out your chart so in the reading being I did for the cosmic playlist launch last year. We talked about the fact that she has Sun Jupiter and so the sun rules her ascendant. So it's very important. Talks about how she gets to where she needs to get to. And what area of life and it's in the Tenth House of career so her life purpose is to shine on the world stage in in here and she has son Junk. Jupiter which is Jupiter is the planet of optimism positivity Spirituality Acceptance Inclusion and abundance and confidence. I don't know if you would say that. Lonzo really embodies that on the world stage in a very joyous way but it's I think she's just a incredible example of that and also her first song to go big was called. Juice and Jupiter is as a deity and the Greco Roman system. Jupiter was very very very very much about fertility and slept with a lot of people and he's the god of lightning and thunder and so the lightning and the rain gene and the rain was thought to be a fertility ritual and the way it hit the ground. And what would happen when that would go on. So Jupiter is really juicy in a percents in terms that he's the the planet that's connected with the rain and the fertility of it and so that that was her first song to go big. I also thought was quite poignant. Can't you know she's about taking up space in being big and loud and positive and giving very very generous and she's a very generous generous and very humorous and that's all it's so Sun Jupiter the to like big royal bodies that are about self expression and and all all those things I mentioned. I know that you don't really do private readings anymore because the demand was just too much but I believe you just started a really really really cool new resource on your website channing. Nicholas Dot Com. Where where our listeners can look up their charts? It seems that this is now a really crucial tool all that. You wanted to have in place for your your readers and your fans and followers talk about how that is going to change change. What you're doing well? It is a companion tool to the book. So if you know looking at your chart makes you once you close your computer or shut your phone off because it's so complicated and feels like there's so much information coming at you. We devised a tool where we lay everything out for you in the simplest helpfully the prettiest way possible where all that Info is put out and you can just read the parts of the book that apply to you and we're going to be building building out that whole framework more and more so we also talked about every planet in your chart with sites in with that a little bit about what that might mean in what house it's in and so it's a way for the general public to be more engaged with their chart. Because I really do feel like this is your map. This is the map of of your life and I want to give you the tools so that you feel like you can have a conversation with it and that you feel empowered enough to be getting the information from it that could set something and you free or like me. Give you permission to do the thing that you're here to do. And this is all free right. This is all free yet. Incredible Janney I have. I have one last question for you. You've come so far in in a life that really was started with so much trauma and of turn that trauma into something that so positive for the world and one of the things that I really love to talk to the people that I interview about is the trajectory of their lives. Hell they've become who they are and we're living in a day and age now where young people feel so much pressure to make early end. You've described yourself both both today on our show as well as in your book as a lately bloomer and I would also describe myself as as a late bloomer. I'm wondering if you can give my listeners. Some advice about what it means to be a late bloomer and all of the extraordinary gifts and possibilities that that can ken bring Yeah I don't know what would have happened to my psyche. Have I had social media in my twenties and thirties. I think it would have kind have broken me in a place because there was so much that I needed to do in private and so much that I needed to do in my own way and the pressure to you perform who we are to perform success or to perform even understanding is really incredible. My heart goes out to to folks that feel in any way pressure to do that. And don't quite have the wherewithal to either not do it to abstain or to do it in a way that feels positive for them but the thing that age teaches us is so incredible because if we are going to be partners in our own life then we get to recede from the outer shell of it and deepen deepen our relationship with ourself and in order to deepen our relationship with ourselves we have to also deepen our relationship with our wounds and the places leases in us that really hurt and that takes time and it just takes consistent effort. It's like when a child is really upset sat and in the throes of a Tantrum. They won't just stop most likely automatically. It's like there has to be a unwinding of what happened in Parsing arcing out in an understanding of what went on and that just takes years and years of consistent thoughtful compassionate approaching approaching our of ourselves our and the ways in which we work. And so what I can say is that when we do have have that commitment to herself into our own growth things do get better i. We can't change anybody else and certainly the world is is full of disaster and complications and things that feel insurmountable but that my relationship with myself only gets. It's Richard and deeper which means that I get to experience so many things that I couldn't even have dreamed and had zero. Oh access to our understanding of how to access and now that I have a relationship with that or that I have access to things like joy and pleasure visger and relaxation things that I didn't have much of a relationship with it all so many more things are possible like connection and relationships nations ships and depth and an understanding of what my talents are and how I can serve them best and so there is no greater investment Smith that we can make I think in our youth then besides a 401k. The investment of our own healing and every we single moment that we spend trying to be more self self aware or trying to understand how we got here and what's occurring. Ah every single investment adds up in ways that are unfathomable later in life. All of it is worth it but please. You don't think you have to have any of it figured out or the have to be any certain place at any certain age. It's such a lie and it will rob you of the ability to be present in the moment. Where and this is the only place where the good stuff is where the juices were? The creative energy is is where the healing is and where the possibility is channy.

Bearing down on us is a serious invitation for each of us to explore what our purpose place in this universe is Cheney channing Nicholas joins me from a steel in Los Angeles channy. Welcome to design manners. Thank you thank you for having me. Oh my absolute pleasure channing. In my research I stumbled upon the fact that there's an actress from Canada named Johnny Nicholas. who had parts in the slasher flick? Nick the long weekend the action movie crews and the horror film slices with these early acting cuts. I don't know her. You're I should've known I was like. What is Debbie going to dig up? I didn't even think of that. Yes that was an earlier incarnation. Oh it is get care possibly be of. It's wonderful so so what persuaded you to move away from acting well the Industry wouldn't have me so it was my It's the reason why I moved to L. A. is because my mom is a landed immigrant in Canada so she never gave up her American citizenship. And I was acting at the time so I went in and out of acting and social work and community work in my twenty s in Toronto and I really wanted to give it a try in. La and I had citizenship. So unlike every other struggling actor in Toronto Santo Actually Really Easy for me to move here and I moved here and gave it my all for three to four years and I made a commitment to myself that if I ever ever started to become bitter about the industry that I would get out and I did I started to become bitter and I really it just kind of sat down and prayed when for probably a series of days about what to do next and I really did feel released from the industry. The desire to be an actor I feel like I really gave it what I wanted to. And I got so much out of it and I feel like I utilize all aspects of everything that I learned in it and it's still a great great love of mine but the industry in me are not. We're not very compatible especially at that point and then I I started to more seriously. Go back into things that had do with healing and kind of awakening. I guess well I guess the universe had other plans for you. Yeah you're you're a tiny town called Nelson British Columbia in the far west of Canada population. Ten thousand six hundred read. Your father was from there. Your mom was from the Bronx. That's a range of influences. You've described your upbringing as a cross between the Neil Neil Simon play and the trailer Park Boys. Can you elaborate on what that means of it. I grew up in that very rural town and I grew up before the Internet. So when you're in a town that's isolated geographically and also so by climate so in the winter it's very isolating experience to be in the base of the Rocky Mountains and pre Internet and and pre phones you. You couldn't talk on you. Know it was like a big deal to make a long distance call and so when we were in Nelson we were very much just in Nelson and because it was such a small town it was a very specific experience. I grew up in large part in a trailer park. At least when I was with my dad and my father was one of the poorest best families in the very small town and so he grew up with like thirteen brothers and sisters and they were just known one is like the roughest kids in their school days and then really kind of rough around the edges. My Dad was a logger and you. Yeah the trailer park that we grew up in tried to kick us out well because they were a little too wild and crazy they. They partied a little too hard and there was a lot of chaos. They were as a lot of upheaval in our trailer and the other trailers in the in the park. It didn't really appreciate it so I had that and then we would go to New York. Every year and my mom's family was all born and raised and very prideful New York Jews news and it was such an incredible opposite experience to most of my life Nelson Cheney. You write this in the the introduction to your new born for this end it stopped me in my tracks. You write this while the adults in my life. Partied and self destructed did with wanton abandoned. I watched the cosby show and dreamed of a life with parents siblings grandparents and lineage to claim me when when the party came home I felt a different kind of loneliness an overdose a fatal accident a shotgun fired a conviction and I knew what cocaine tasted like. By the time I was five. Channy Jammie how is this possible. How did you survive this? Well I think a lot of us are miracles. I've I've sat with thousands of the people and I've looked at their chart and I've looked into their past and I've seen so many of us and saddened circles and social justice spaces aces and to bear witness to the miracle of what we survive as humans is one of the greatest gifts of my work for those of us that grew up in in environments. Like that it's that experience and it's really normal to me and it was normal to a lot of of the kids. I grew up with so that when we get together I was just in my hometown over the holidays and I was sitting around the table of the kids of all the people that used to party together. And you know we grew up out of all all of that but it was so comforting to be sitting around a table of people where I could say something about my life setup and everybody understood and it really was this collective experience that we had because we were living in a town against so isolated in in the seventies and eighties when when culture was kind of like you know getting ripped open and it was after the sixties but there is this upheaval in like end an experimentation and just a free for all and the amount of bad behavior that people can get away with in a space where everyone else else's doing it is can be quite extraordinary and I think folks just weren't really into being parents. They just were really into doing what they wanted to do. And it was a childhood that was terrifying. I mean I really was quite terrified. My whole we'll childhood and also grew up in this incredible beauty and the abundance of beauty and the nature that I grew up in was was a lifesaver for sure and also the the people I grew up with my friends and the groups of us that kind of helped each other through all of that. If you were exposed to cocaine by the time you were five how did you not become addicted. And why weren't you taken away by child services. Well I definitely struggled with addiction and I have in a lot of my life. I don't drink or or do drugs at this point and they haven't about ten years so I am sober and it was a really important thing for me because while I made a very conscious decision probably probably by the time I was six or seven or eight that I would never become a drug addict because I grew up around so many I never had a normal or normal. I never had a a good relationship with substances. They were always used in a harmful way or my engagement with them was always around self hate or some kind of harm or I would. It's too easy for me to go there when I use substances so I just don't but it took me a long time and many many atrocious mistakes and a lot of wrong turns and a lot of living out the stuff that I grew up in the book. I'm a really really late bloomer. I messed up a lot and and I struggled a lot and then you know I fell in love and everything came together at that point in your life. Where you pondering your a future or were you just really solely in survival mode? When I met my no no child? Oh Yeah I was desperate for any kind of adult I was. I was desperate for anybody with any any sense of maturity and any sense incisive like authority and so when I met the woman who became my step grandmother. My Dad's third wife's mom who I write about in the book. I met her when I was eleven and it was a spiritual experience I met her and I felt like a voice like rose up in me and said follow this woman. She knows knows how to make it out so I was always just trying to make it out. Something in me told me there's more to life than what was happening around me and if I could just get out I would be okay and so then it was just this desire and this hunting relief for some adult or something to help me find my way out and to find my way towards really towards healing. I mean like I was asking. I was begging her. She is ricky master. She was begging egging her at the age of twelve to let me come to rake you workshops with her. 'cause I just knew I needed a space where I could start to sort things out. I know that when you were eight years old you had the first experience of feeling seen can. Can you talk about that a little bit. Yeah it's a hazy memory but I do remember. I was taking on a lot of adventures by adults that were not necessarily early obtaining good so it felt like one of those things where it was a drug run so there was a drug deal happening and I was along for the ride. It was one of those things where I spent a lot of my childhood. Either in a car for in a backroom of a bar or in some back room of a party or kind of like shut away a lot of times so that adults could do whatever they wanted so when an adult would actually see me or see you know the kids that were around. It was always a little startling. And this time I was sitting there minding honeyman business While some transaction was happening and I just remember this woman that the person I was talking to and she was like what's her birthday and she was told my birthday and she opened up. What I can only assume isn't a famous and looked down and calculated so you know my planets and looked up at me and said you're very judgmental and I thought yes yes I am really? Oh you but I didn't even really know what it meant but I felt like it had power and I felt like I. It inferred to me that she was saying I had discernment and I don't know if that's is what she meant. But that's what I took from it and I just always a year earned for someone in my life to say this is wrong long. This should not be happening. This child should not be witnessed to this. Likes somebody stop and do something to protect this child elder these children and because no one ever did I became somebody who is quite protective and protected and a little harsh sometimes in my judgment so when that astrologer or when that person said that about what. I'm assuming is my astrology. I felt really seen. I was like cool. I'm judgmental aw I really hung onto it. Had some pride about it. Tell us about your second interaction. The second major interaction you had with this strategy. You're about twelve. I believe yeah it was twelve. which is a really beautiful moment? astrologically also psychologically which a lot of astrological cycles of course curse come together with psychological cycles. But it's like that pre little prepubescent or kind of right right on the edge of it and we're all seeking like more self knowledge and its Jupiter Return and Jupiter is about knowledge and wisdom and Expansion and Growth and my dad had laughed that small town with his third wife. They flew the coop so to speak because she was in a very abusive relationship and everyone was kind of in a very abusive relationship but she was in a severe one and they laughed and my dad left my sister and I we both have different moms but we were we you were left behind in Nelson and they would start to fly me out to Toronto where they moved to and I knew the woman who became my stepmom and I knew her children really well I've actually grown up with them. I was their babysitter and we were all together all the time and so when they laughed it was really an incredible will break for me. Psychologically because it was an escape route all of a sudden had been built for me they were out of Nelson. They were in a big city and her parents. It's were like well educated and also her mom was really into the healing arts and so when we won I think the first summer I was out there her mom again. Iraqi master had friends that were psychics and Tarot card readers and astrologers and she was like hey you should all go out to this woman and got an astrology reading and so we did and I just remember sitting down in this woman's house and we were all sitting around and everyone everyone kind of paying attention and in and out in my step brother and sister were.

The greg is hunting for apartments to live and and in subsequent episodes. There are amazing thing so you going up into that. The bed is like the size of this door you a._m. Squeeze into it knocking my head on the ceiling right but it's a loft so that's cool but i've yeah it's a very real thing you can't in an apartment in new york for any i mean shopping for apartments and you've got to spend money to just have room to move around even in my apartment right now. I can't even like do do a push up on the ground not that i try to do push ups all the time but like sometimes i do round and sometimes they just want to stretch you know like do like like stretch stretch my legs or something again that what are you six four. I'm six seven what that short. I take it back when i was younger in auditions editions and now at this point i'm on popcorn with peter travers so i feel like i can be honestly. I'm six seven. Wow yeah no yeah. There's a lot sometimes times. When you're auditioning actresses who are five one yeah well yeah i pretty much any any rule so if i if there's a father and and he's shorter than six to like i have no chance of playing his son really picking yoon about it. Yeah yeah yeah oh. I've lost a lot roles because of my height because because you know it's hard to photograph maybe for some people or or they don't want to put the lead actors on apple boxes which i understand india now on a movie once where it was a walk and talk through high school and they're actress that was playing my love interest she and and i were walking in the gave her a track of apple boxes like twenty pieces of wood lined up together leap almost white. Luckily they weren't saying. I thought maybe it was like a jump. No she had this nice wooden pass to walk on and then she couldn't walk loudly because it would make noise on the wood so i sorta stuff is awkward. I guess maybe in a stone age of movies when alan ladd was with field rent in the boy on a dolphin. He was like five four so they they dug a trench for fielder renter walker right that you should make them do that. This should dig up flooring for they should do. You should be haulage. You are yeah yeah vetco star walk in the trench except wouldn't i need to walk. You would walk in the trash you were. I would need to walk you wouldn't they would need to stay. Stay on grounds. That's it none of that for you so i walked down the trench there on the boxes. Maybe i should bring a little if i'm just so confused now into image of you as zach attack yeah. That was the first sky sky high of course i'm film critic that would in fact that those fifteen years ago had a clip because is there was hair like yeah what leads blonde bleached platinum blonde thing. I glowed in the dark if you if if you turn the lights off and look real close you could see glowing but you couldn't in the light. That was one of the sad parts of that character yeah that that's a good that was my first big part yeah and when that happened what happened to you did you.

I don't know i don't know if you ever know sixteen and and i i remember getting it. The moment i got the call and i screamed and screamed for some amount of time and it was just the greatest moment of my life screaming screaming with my friends.

It's a in connecticut is doing small plays a little short films student films and things but this this was like a real. I was gonna get paid like real real money and <hes> go do it in l._a. You know so that that did feel like the moment where maybe i thought oh. Maybe i'm i keep doing this but i don't think you ever know that you're gonna well connect you going to that's never going to be eh. What happens it's going to be do. I get another job exactly who i ever work again. That's part of the deal. Exactly you have to get. I used to it. I can't get used to it. It's like it's not i never well. I guess maybe right now.

My friends were in that movie so i got to just treat them. Horribly always a good thing yeah yeah so just got to yell at them and force them to do things and fight fight them like ezra miller. He and i were wrestling a lot in that movie and that was really fun just sort of bashing into each other. I like those opportunities where you just get to. I don't know i get to be meaner. Tougher have amine side dip yeah and and how does it manifest itself no no sorry. I'm sorry i'm sorry even didn't seem so me. No no wasn't wasn't before.

"nicholas" Discussed on Popcorn with Peter Travers
"Hi everybody. I'm peter travers is this is popcorn where i tell you what is popping in the culture and h._b._o. Has a show called succession which i love. I love every minute of it. I'd even seen the i five episodes of season two how you know things and my guest today nicholas braun place cousin greg makes him a fan favorite and one of the great things about succession. That's rare and television is that season two is better than season one. It's even more decadent than delicious a what do to you. Nick thank you so. Our work is done here all right. That's it. Well yeah thank you well. Let's start by saying the poor benighted souls that had had yet to watch it. They need to know cousin. Greg is yeah yeah yeah. Is this dude cousin greg so the shows about a very very wealthy family billionaire family the movie studios news networks newspapers and amusement parks cruises and cousin greg greg comes in luckily at the right time when the patriots of the family is giving his company to his next to the two one of his children altern and the other kids. Maybe want the job too but this kid kendall's gotten in the pilot. He's gotten chosen and greg comes in. He was working working in the amusement parks. He got a little bit too high. One day ended up throwing throwing up a publicly through his mascot costume through the eye. Holes has one you you know one of those bad trips <hes> we'd can do that. You know he hasn't seen the family and a while and he comes in and <hes> something about him. Strike slogan gene is appealing logan's play by brian cox the hidden in the headman turning eighty and at the end of the pilot everyone's thrown into flux and for whatever reason greg is still in the mix and so i guess that my my arc is sort of finding out. Can i stay in here get in deeper than she does because i think it's great that he can play dumb really well yeah. Is he playing window. You know well. No i mean there's calculation like no tomorrow to do that. So i was gonna say. Why did whoever said we. We want nick braun to play cousin greg. Was it about you that made them say. Nick must play cousin grech. What was that audition like. I got to use my nerves in the in the in the room with adam mckay and i got to be sort of. I got to transfer my nerves about out this thing wrong. This big audition into what greg is i think he's nervous in a room but i think he's also ambitious highly ambitious and and so the audition it was like i don't know i was i kind of let whatever comes out of greg's mouth whatever wants to come out and hung out an an atom gave me permission to and and so it was a lot of writers think that they should. They like <hes> improv going on. They do that then that's heaven to do that. Yeah they do like it. I do get recognized now as cousin greg. Are you walking around the city or and people say there. He is because we look at it. They love him yeah but nobody is really marley a model for anybody on this whole show. I don't know anybody anybody that you aren't suspicious too but yeah yeah do they come up and say cousin grad. They do yeah they shout cousin greg the show greg deeg so yeah i gotta the law. You're going to get the whole thing. You know. You're going to get the company you know. I think it should happen. I wonder if they even know 'cause you just been renewed for season season three. We have indeed yeah. Congratulations thank you. That's kinda great yeah. I've never been a part of some kind of is the new game of thrones just with people wearing suits and you know dragging insulator slogan. They're they're dragging unconcern. That's what kind of show is happening. It looks like everybody's having a fun time. Are they definitely yeah because it's a lot of improv. It's you know it's it's a lot of different personalities in a room <hes> different styles of acting. You know you're you're curious. Got one style and jeremy's army's got another and and brian is always ferocious in a room and every scene i get to do with matthew is just pleasure right yeah. I hear so you know there's a whole thing online that there should be a spin off with tom and greg yeah yeah. It's too premature. You know we still have now. Come out of romance left to well well. There's a lot of people think in the future. All the time. It's t big area is working. It can work again. Spend it all do that. Let's let's look at a clip from succession so that those people who have been because they'll look at it and they'll say i'm watching. What's it over. You can all watch it you okay. What's.

Let me let me start by then just summarizing some of the arguments and then if you want me to summarize the whole book. I'm happy to describe what we do in our what i do in the book greg so the basic ideas from my perspective is that for too long scientists and the person on the street have been focused on the dark side of human nature are on our propensity for violence or tacitly or tribalism or selfishness and the bright side has been denied the attention it deserves because while it it is the case that we are prone to those awful things we humans we are also prone to wonderful things like love and friendship and cooperation and teaching in fact these phenomena must necessarily have been more powerful than i think they were more powerful than the dark side of our nature because if in our in central environment every time.

"nicholas" Discussed on Ponderings from the Perch
"Free or or pay tools you have a chance now of on every transaction every customer asking them very simply like how do you feel about and if they feel positive well you now have like it. It's already in the system ready made group to market to a ready made group to mobilize to do other things and i think now <unk> at basically the the networks even organic has all those things get tighter the energy that you put into going get net new may go up whereas the energy that that you put in to basically activating or really leveraging your current <hes> or the effort i mean basically you get a better rate of return on that so i think that's really big the other one. I think that i think is really good. Is that <hes> all. The tools are getting cheaper. All the tools are getting easier <hes> and so e mail is something we've brought down starter and we're looking at also bringing three rian so i think that being able to give people tools that they can do just to get the fundamentals. I've joked with yesterday. You know a lot of people can't read to marketing sixty other to get a marketing fire are going and i just really think that <hes> you know if if we're talking about in general just helping people believe that marketing can work i like bringing that down to the lower tiers of ourself so that then they're ready when they want to automate and do think that scale and that that's exciting to me because it's very difficult to basically build in your your <hes> your business without doing marketing nowadays and i really like rebel. They call me. Tell me from your perspective from our tech and what ordered the smallest companies. You see doing well on the spot and one of the largest companies. What is that scale so the we stretch it a bit in the past. I think we had some five person companies <hes> that were paying for pro. I don't think that's really appropriate <hes>. I think that that we kind of look at our buying tears. There's a the level of sophistication so make no mistake there startups who have four or five people that probably do need our pro-enterprise 'cause they're pretty pretty good but in general we kind of see it as like are pro version is for companies with twenty five employees or higher <hes> and and are kind of cap the largest companies that we have have around two thousand employees anything above that you really should be moving into some of the more enterprise type solutions that are out there and then for our free in starter stuff. It's really it's really fascinating week we have. I thought that these might be for some of our recall them owner ali. You know like people like need whenever i was trying to get my business on etc we thought it'd be and and there are a lot by the way and so i would say even for you and you're out working the customers. We think that having this free c._r._m. Is really transformative and everybody should be starting off with you know some sort of platform but we're actually saying that probably fifty percent of our of our pre and starter customers are pretty good sized businesses with twenty five or more employees and so we think that a lot of them are either evaluation mode or that enslaved some of the free tools that we have but enough for them to us right now as a point solution while they're doing that yeah well you did mention it does take time you know it takes you know getting buy in from the whole group had takes also a mindset shift about how to do marketing and and then it does also take learning tools. You know there's there's a tech side to it. That can be very difficult for some people and you know e even in a you you know a company. That's well beyond five or ten people. They also struggled to find someone who really can own the tech piece and in it. It is interesting gene in that size. Is that tech piece. <hes> you know that person the right person than to be riding the content probably not so there's a little bit of like division of labor neighbor that i think makes a little bit harder for companies yeah. The tool may be great on the outside but they may not have an internal structure that really is is going to be able to make use of better understand it in a proper way. I see that a lot at home and i think the platform wars are underway. I think a lot of people listening into this and out in the world are are <hes> or maybe unaware of that but all these platforms are tugging on you right now and you could go use that beer and link everything up if you want to but every new interface you learn takes time and energy every new password you have to maintain every time you have to export and get to a new spreadsheet sheet to have any chance of understanding the effectiveness or the roll up is hard and <hes> and so. I think that what what i'm excited about with us like. I don't think anybody can be an all in one anymore. I think some platforms will have more dominant anchors than others and that's kind of where we wanna be without salt. We wanna knock you know work on the really big anchors. I think we're kind of really excited about this concept of an all on on one and a handful of vendors out there looking bad as well which is like or do you have <hes>. Just you know what's what's your best chance to give business to plug in all of their different vendors. Ah still be able to learn one interface. Have one kind of master assistant rule them all. I think that's probably the next big wave. You're gonna see over the next five years. Is that almost every business from getting started on day. One all the way up to the large platforms are all moving to these kind of all on one type concepts. Yeah yeah and i'm excited about that well i will. We'll give you guys a plug on this. I think guys have an amazing blog. I think you have an amazing library of resources. When i i was looking at <hes> at hub spot auden was learning inbound you also had podcast that just really recapped training modules and things like that and it was very accessible and people can get certified without vowed even having the product and i think that kind of the democratization of understanding inbound is super important piece to really building. You know your potential angel client base up so i give you a shout out for that because actually i know you have several blogs but i think the marketing blog for anybody who's kind of in that position that we just discussed like. I just don't know maybe we're in an evaluation stage. Those are very very meaty blogs and they really do help go through obviously is a little bird marketing are are blogs. We try and be incredibly helpful and credibly real world. About what are we talking about and then i thought what would be great nicholas after after the show. Why don't you have someone on your team. Semi maybe one two or three like fantastic links to just a couple of pieces that you think really really really speak to some of the things we've talked about. People can get a little bit of a taste of directly from the spa blog. How about that okay well. Let's wrap up with our rapid fire ear and a little bit more personal gets no nicholas holland and what he's thinking but why don't you start off with giving us a short short answer back about a <hes> best and worst piece of advice. You ever gotten your career. Take the best advice i've ever gotten that. It's usually not one thing that makes her breaks hugh. It's <hes> at the addition and subtraction of all the little things you do day in and day out so that really impacts me a lot that you know. I'm not looking for any major. Your home runs each day. It's just that make the right decision and then make a good decision. I make a good decision. Oh a couple of bad decisions. I make a decision you just wanna make more than good and you start to see that progress. That's been really impactful and then i when you ask this question i chuckled before because like lately there's been a bunch of joking amongst my colleagues and even my wipe about how some of the business advice lately sounds really good but it basically just means nothing and so we we actually make this joke each other which is like the your best self self and i actually don't even know what that means but it sounds good and i wanna be my best self but it leaves me feeling lost and the east. That's probably my worst. If i well i will say i'll add one more show. I just recorded a huge podcast with one of my friends andy christina out of orbit orbiting media studios and he took a part a piece of content that was literally the worst piece of ice and it was like in five tips and in every single one of them was like completely horrendous <hes> and so it just because it's written doesn't mean it's true so i it just be your best self. We're going to keep it down. I love it okay. Let's do a little quick rapid fire. Are you big podcast a listener yet now yeah what are you. Some of your favorites introduces something great <hes> so i listened to the area hawaii you see podcasts. I'm a big lover of fighting and if you <hes> <hes> you know we didn't talk about podcast but one of the things he did it. He's a ten year overnight success with some of the deepest analysis and intimate that out there and then also freakonomics freakonomics radio. I know lots of people have that but i think what's fascinating is how often we justify the world through our own little lynn's versus actual kind of data eight and things like that and so the to california. Oh i bet you you experience a lot of that. You can apply a lot of freakonomics. Mike two things you hear spot holds all day yeah yeah. So what about do you have. A favorite app is kind of a goto on your phone. I do this and maybe pretty <hes> anticlimactic. I just i gave myself. I self over to my google overlords many years ago people don't spy on you know. I was like the three kids like so boring but i love google. Keep and i'll tell you why i love it when it first came out. I was this thing <hes> like. I love evernote. I'm how this little app has slowly chewed and eating its way into my life and so i use people sleep now i literally park and i put my parking spot in google keefe. I have birthday party stuff. I put in there my my <hes>. Get something from my c._e._o. Up spot. I put it in there. It's like google keep just now is like this awesome little tool and especially when they integrated into g mail. It's just right there at a love it. What about a book. Are you big reader. You listen to podcasts so i do i do but i'm going to pick a fiction book but i really like <hes> even keeping and a book that i've read three times now stephen king the stand and <hes> i think i'd like it because <hes> i get it. I get it but i like it because <hes> assiduously at the kind of breakdown of what happens in society when when things go really terrible and i don't know why i'm just live fascinated by that well i love. I love it and that's great writing so for inbounding content marketers. I think a really fantastic quality. Writing is a mess right okay. Let's say your favorite blog. Obviously i give a shoutout out to the hub spot blog but is there anyone else that you follow in. The industry that you think is worth a highlight in the industry. <hes> copy bloggers really good <hes> yeah <hes>. I think that's really good. I think that when i think about writing really interesting content <hes> that i would probably model my myself after i like <hes> i like the fivethirtyeight blog and there's really nothing like it. That's out there and what i love about. It is that even though some of the topics are really different. It kind of all speaks really scratches that <hes> that that i think a lot of people have which is like the stories that data tales yeah and so when we when i thought about what you were going to ask you know there's a time you could you just go look up the top blogs for marketing fox but if you were to go look at like how do you find your people and that's really what this is all about. Where's your where's your people. <hes> i think five thirty ish so oh fascinating how there's nothing like it out there and it's just it's also really damn good very cool. Well i appreciate all your time and expertise. You have martin certainly a link with nicholas list holland out on lincoln and you can read a little bit more about it but he does write his own very great articles out on lincoln so be sure to check that out nicholas. Thank you so much for coming on ponderings from the verge. That was a lot of fun thank you i appreciate it. Well that wraps up this episode. All the people here at little bird marketing wish you a great day and happy <music> <music>..
