"So I <Speech_Male> think climate <Speech_Male> a big <SpeakerChange> focus for <Speech_Female> lots of reasons. <Speech_Female> Of course, <Speech_Female> we couldn't <Speech_Female> possibly close <Speech_Female> an interview about transient <Speech_Female> prediction without <Speech_Female> talking about <Speech_Female> what comes next with <Silence> technology and the <Speech_Female> web. <Speech_Female> What can we expect <Speech_Female> in this area? <Speech_Female> Will I be interviewing <Silence> you in <SpeakerChange> the metaverse <Silence> next year? <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Absolutely. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> We <Speech_Male> could have done an interview <Speech_Male> on that adverse this <Speech_Male> year. If we put <Speech_Male> our hats headsets on <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> I think by this time <Speech_Male> next year there'll be a lot more <Speech_Male> headsets and hopefully a little <Speech_Male> bit more <Speech_Male> a bit lighter and <Speech_Music_Male> more usable. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> But yes, I <Speech_Male> think <Speech_Male> more relevant <Speech_Male> to journalism <Speech_Male> immediately I <Speech_Male> think are the other <Speech_Male> probably the different applications <Speech_Male> of artificial <Speech_Male> intelligence, <Speech_Male> different AI technologies. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> I think that <Speech_Male> they're relevant <Speech_Male> to <Speech_Male> recommendations, <Speech_Male> more relevant recommendations <Speech_Male> to engage <Speech_Male> people <Speech_Male> that's the number one <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> usage <Speech_Male> this year according to <Speech_Male> our survey. <Speech_Male> But also <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> commercial uses <Speech_Male> as well and use more <Speech_Male> automation. <Speech_Male> So we're seeing <Speech_Male> in automation <Speech_Male> we're seeing a lot more productized <Speech_Male> tools <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> around transcription <Speech_Male> around summarization <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> around <Speech_Male> authorization <Speech_Male> or automation <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> text to speech <Speech_Male> as well. And I think <Speech_Male> why that's important <Speech_Male> is it enables <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> publishers <Speech_Male> to package up <Speech_Male> content <Speech_Male> in different ways <Speech_Male> that it can then version <Speech_Male> more <Speech_Male> more easily. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> And when we talk <Speech_Male> about personalization, I think <Speech_Male> that sort of format innovation <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> and how you can package <Speech_Male> things is going to be a <Speech_Male> key part of the future. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> And then finally, <Speech_Male> I think we're going to <Speech_Male> hear a lot more about the next <Speech_Male> iteration of the <Speech_Male> Internet this year, <Speech_Male> so called web three, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> so the first iteration <Speech_Male> of the Internet was <Speech_Male> about publishers <Speech_Male> making most of the content <Speech_Male> and make most of the money. <Speech_Male> Web two <Speech_Male> users start to create <Speech_Male> and then platforms <Speech_Male> take a lot of that <Speech_Male> and become <Speech_Male> sort of dominant <Speech_Male> power. And <Speech_Male> in web three, <Speech_Male> the potential of <Speech_Male> web three is <Speech_Male> more decentralized <Speech_Male> approaches <Speech_Male> built on sort of <Speech_Male> blockchain technologies <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> cryptocurrencies <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> in <Speech_Male> theory that gives <Speech_Male> content creators and publishers and potentially <Speech_Male> more control <Speech_Male> over intellectual <Speech_Male> property over data <Speech_Male> over making money. <Speech_Male> So that's <Speech_Male> kind of we're going to hear a lot <Speech_Male> of more about <Speech_Male> that, whether it pans <Speech_Male> out is a completely <Speech_Male> different matter and <Speech_Male> whether it has any relevance <Speech_Male> to journalism as a <Speech_Male> different matter. But we'll certainly <Speech_Male> hear a lot more hype of <Silence> that web three <SpeakerChange> as well <Speech_Male> as. <Speech_Female> Lots <Speech_Female> to keep licking and <Speech_Female> looking forward <Speech_Female> for this year. <Speech_Female> Nick, thank you <Silence> so much for joining us <Speech_Music_Female> today. <Speech_Female> Our guest today <Speech_Female> was Nick Newman, <Speech_Female> author of the <Speech_Female> journalist media and <Speech_Female> technology trends <Speech_Female> in prediction <Speech_Female> 2022 report <Speech_Female> and lead author <Speech_Male> of the digital news report <Speech_Female> that comes

"Your own bank or be your own boss and to take responsibility for custody into your own hands and so when we think about opportunities lake lending or other sorts of finance replication of the traditional finance system in the bitcoin space. What's most interesting is when that capability is unlocked while not compromising on those values. So what does it look like to have lending where you have on. You're not giving away control of your bitcoin for a period. Can you do that. Those are the sorts of opportunities that we are most excited about.

Take control of your time all right back to the show when you're receiving a pitch for a business particularly in this space in the in the bitcoin space. What is something that really helps. You get confidence or excitement in the project to know that you think that it's going to be something special. Well i think that there's a couple things. There's two things really so we're always looking for when still mark backs accompanied. That's because we believe that. The founders at the helm of that company are the best decision makers in that space in that category. So an example of that that i've already mentioned is causa so caused us sees security as not just a technology challenge but also as you i challenge and the way that nick newman and jameson. Lobb are thinking about what it means to offer. Software that enables individuals to provide their own security and have that be just as robust as he would get if you were dropping dollars at bank of america for instance the leadership there is. What's most important in so when evaluating founder. That's new to me. There's really two things that i look at first and so one is the founders vision and of course it's important when avi is evaluating the opportunity to produce a return on investment. That's what we're doing right so it's not an altruistic pursuit really although there's some of that because of the space we work in but we're looking for companies that can be that can create incredible value for the folks they serve that can capture a fraction of that so that they're building billion dollar businesses. So were looking at founders. That have frankly really massive visions. That's that's the first thing is the market significant enough and is the founder thinking aggressively enough. And then we're looking for a team that includes leadership that can really speak with protocol level developers in a to-to-to sort of fashion. So what that means is that means practically for the company is that they can understand what's happening at the protocol level today and what the roadmap within near term roadmap looks like and how that's relevant to their business so a good example of this a great example of this is paul e toy with ellen de work and paul allen d work has two products one is thinks chat and the other stock work. And so what. Paul is doing is he. Has this sort of incredible vision for how lightning network is relevant to the masses. And what that means to paul is how can a queen native financial chat be interesting to folks even outside of the bitcoin space. So it's interesting to us. Bitcoin is rate. I know preston that you have a tribe on sphinx chat. I'm a part of that tribe. I use bitcoin every day. Financial chat and calls on swings chat. But it's not just about serving us. It's about introducing a sort of decentralized financial chats system. Can we chat be decentralized cannon use lightning nodes to allow folks to sort of have their own space where data is transacted. So that you don't get these sort of like big data dumps or hacks where there is a central server that all of our data sits on and if that's penetrated then we're all sort of in trouble so paul's thinking like that and then that links with stack work which is relevant for folks in emerging markets and for those that don't know what stock work is is mechanical turk lake marketplace where tasker done on smartphones and most of the workforce most of the supply side of that is an emerging markets and. Folks are earning their first ever smartphones by doing working getting paid in stats and so we're looking for founders like that that are really thinking big. So they're thinking folks like polar thinking what does it mean for the world. Broadly now that we have a trusted insecure digital currency something where scarcity can be assured in where we understand the mon monetary policies that those are fixed and that they can't be changed by five guys in back room can that be powerful emerging markets. Can that be important and chat so we're looking for founders like that and then i also mentioned in that example how a financial chat can sort of be a safer environment in lightning environment because of the architecture that exists to support it so that shows his competency and sort of somehow native understanding of this new protocol sort of founder is the founder that we really want it back and be partners with and the the hope. Is that our network that we bring to the table for them. Our understanding of venture capital and building businesses along with hopefully understanding of bitcoin can be in some way meaningful. The two founders like that and can help move the needle. That's the first look. What are your thoughts on the big news of el salvador and what that might mean moving forward so that is. That's the reason why bitcoin right. So the reason. Why and bitcoin is. Because i.

"In this half is it will dig into the most important transit will shape journalists in twenty twenty. One here are some of the questions. We'd like to answer in episode. Is it true to. The pandemic is accelerating the shift digital in the news industry which full matz and technologies. Hold the most promise for january twenty one and we try new streams will publisher exploring the next few months. We'll talk about this with our guest. Nick newman who's senior. Research associate editors institute and the author of the report journalist media and technology trends and prediction. Twenty twenty one which you can find on the reuters institute website. Nick welcome and thank you for being with us today. Thank you federica is so this is a report. You've also for a few years now. And it's based on a survey of two hundred thirty four senior executives from forty three different countries around the word which finding all findings surprised you. The most about is year import <hes>. I guess i guess. I should the optimism of the people we asked in the survey <unk>. Expecting to find given everything that's going on a huge amount of of of gloom and doom. But actually i think seventy three percent said they were optimistic about that. Companies specs and <hes>. Pretty much hof said. They were optimistic about journalism. In general which which actually is higher than this time last year and i think to some extent that reflects the fact that although the pandemic has been extremely difficult economically <hes>. Very distressing personally. It's also <hes>. It's also has taken away some of those barriers to change of sort of frustration. People on the one hand. And then i think secondly it reflects sort of confidence that somehow on the pandemic people what coming back to journalism but the product itself was really valuable to people and i hope that maybe we've turned a corner where we can again sort of distinguish journalism from from the massive information. That's out there on the incident. You mention change and a vast majority of the people you surveyed say to a pandemic accelerating to shift to digital. Do you know why they really mean by that <hes>. In which ways we'd say. The pandemic is transforming journalism beyond the. It's showtime fact. Right i think the the sort of accelerator effective specifically share. What was really good about the surveys. We had people talking about the different ways in which they expected that business to be different. Oh johnson to be different than twenty twenty one. And i think a couple of things. One is obviously working practices. So we so for the first time whole television output pink done from from people's homes using zoom for q. And this would have been on head of a year ago. We also <unk>. Newspapers being outfitted with literally nobody in the office so the whole thing was remote jenna sort of holding against many of these technology trends were forced to work in a different way embrace these new tools and i think you know talking to people this year. They say we're not going back to how things were. You know the museums of the future going to be different. They gonna be hybrid. That gonna be in person and remote together and this is really going to be about working out how that happens and that's partly about tools but it's also about trying to find a balance between efficiency remote working which people like by the way they say they want to go back to the office but also do you get the creativity. How'd you avoid the sort of lack of human contact which people find very difficult. So that's the first thing. And then i think the second sort of theme is really around gems self again. During the crisis we saw that there was a sort of renewed focus on on facts. Because that's what people wanted. The value specialist jones really came out with you a health journalist or whether you were answering this questions that was a huge theme. And i think we're all set so we're going to see specialism. I think it's going to be more valued answering questions. These full mats are gonna be used more invalid more. And then i think we're gonna see more coverage of certain areas like a mental health. Obviously it's gonna be huge theme more reporters covering those kinds of subjects wellness and also trying to find more positively in journalism as well so these are all themes that people talked about and so of course that's about the newsroom operation and the journeys site and what about impact of covid on the business of journalists right so i mean that's that's clearly being changing for some time and again covid nineteen has accelerated that shift towards subscription pay content. So when we asked people what was the most what would be the most important <hes>. Business model for that company in twenty twenty one subscription is now at the top. So what we've asked this question before it's been advertising. It's now subscription. So we're gonna we'll have more payables that's wh- more barriers to to content for some of us for example. We're gonna get quite irritated by that. I think the message is really revenue diversification so everyone is focusing on not know. There's no silver bullet is not subscriptions or advertising. It's kind of both of those. And then on top of that on average <hes>. Respondents said the full different revenue streams. We're going to be important to them this year and that included things like events which is a huge interest in e commerce animals said direct payment from platforms is going to be much more significant this year because google and facebook planning to roll out. More <hes> will goblins where they pay content directly licensed content directly. That's can be a real really interesting stories. Washing twenty twenty one. I'm curious about that e commerce <hes>. What has do journalists. that's a really good question. So so i think i think in in some ways this goes back to the fact that during the pandemic with much more used to buying things online and so therefore this old sort of chain of how you get interested in a product in the first place and then go on to complete it becomes much more critical so in the uk for example it was twenty percent of the beginning of the reach. A economizes percentage of to retail was twenty percent is now thirty five percent so massive increase in our familiarity with that impoverishes of thinking. Well how can we get involved with that. And so i think of two things one is you've got <hes>. Publishes toronto crate recommendations. If you like independent right recommendations the independent in the uk does not with its best buy section <hes>. You have the new times. A separate cycle walkouts <hes>. Where it's basically recommending in an impartial way different products and making fees from the but then you also have the opportunity to brand things directly so buzzfeed's been doing this for some time with a tasty ice cream for example based on it's tasty brand <hes>. And they are planning this year to <hes>. Focus on wellness and sex aimed at millennials and so they're selling things like sex toys and working with the manufacturers to actually sell physical goods online as well. So you can go. Jones will you can call it <hes>. Information but these are ways in which publishes thinking maybe we can get a share of that growing market before we move onto other topics you also mentioned events and has some one who pass was used to go to many events myself now of course moved on zuma online but were sorts of events. Might we see more of this year. What do you think. Yes so i think this is fascinating. I don't know how this is going to work out but again what we've seen is this. Enormous change was suddenly a whole you know millions of people have got confident and comfortable with going online and the paying for things and consuming things video so previously events very much about physical networking relatively small numbers of people high value increasingly. You can create an event you can invite you know. Hundreds of thousands of people to it'll millions in the case of sean michelle jarre. Who did his new concert. You can stream it. You can create a whole load of interactive content around it quite how this could work on decides ation terms. I'm not sure but publishes definitely looking at events and thinking about what is a physical event strategy online event strategy with us just to create an email addresses. And maybe how do we combine that and make it hybrid. So i think it's gonna be a lot of action in that space

Settle when when you go into the high notes standard beyond your range and you go into the full settle you do it with a lot of power which you don't. We don't see a lot of pop records anymore You know a lot of guys are going for more of a baritone really baritone sound It's it's really cool stuff. And i'm gonna we're gonna play a track For people in in a little bit then But you mentioned and we're gonna play is drive me insane but There are several other songs that caught my attention. And what. I like about you Is that you deliver the lyrics on your website. You actually put the lyrics up there for geezers like me. That's an important thing to be able to actually read the lyrics along as you listen to song for the first time so you get to know it pretty quickly so a couple of songs that Stick out my mind. Cloud nine in rodeo rodeo in particular It's shut me because there. This things in there are elements in there that Bring me back to like and it's not it doesn't sound like that at all but like jimmy dean What was that song. Hey kid rock and roll rack little bit in there and as a sound. How's it but you made it feel like really good. And it's a totally unique and for people who are think i'm saying it's like any kind of plagiarism. Everybody borrows from somebody. But and that's a subconscious thing right. You aren't thinking. I wasn't even aware that but i know the track. Now that you mention it yeah yeah. Yeah yeah and and are very cool sound so are you Are you designing although the guitar sounds are a really textured nice and unique sound sometimes is a like a wa. A guitar comes in on like one channel really cool texture and production a you doing all that and designing that Sound on rodeo. You you you. You have Me and yana sox are doing it. we're sort of We're we're co-producing than a with co-produced I mean but the guitar sounds are mine But obviously It's it's the productions the collaborative effort. So yeah and yanni's brilliant. He's he's he's been in the business for a very long time and he's he's worked with a lot of very famous people both in finland germany and sweden I think that the to be really honest with you and this is this once again is deserved praise. i One for for music for the type of music that i'm doing right now I can't think of anybody better than he. Yeah you know incredible though the work bears at a professional effort between the two of you. And you know. I'm a i'm not wanting to give like lots of praise heaped. Lots of praise on this stuff. This stuff is really You know Super impressive to me and So at the other song is cloud nine Would the harmonies on that. Really kind of really impressed me a lot. But the you know the songwriting in general is very very good. Talk about that's on cloud nine if you will just a little bit Yeah that's one of the that's one of the songs that is sort of very carmen. Grace when i started the impersonators. I wanted to stay away from the sound of the old band. Because i because i want impersonators to have their own identity but then and we kept releasing. We have released. I think about the six six singles before that and my eldest son I know he was listening to carbon. Grey 'cause you know your kids kind of do not like that used to be a rockstar. Is they look at you. Yeah hallway that so. I post that stuff on them and then but but he came to me asset that look. I'll be listening to the impersonators and And i love it. But but i really liked what what you were doing with carmen gray although sewn zero because they were kind of year grinders that how you how about you write one of those tunes one more of those you know and i said well you know i'm trying to Have the impersonators have their own identity and and and whatever and in and then he said well okay but but i started thinking about it and i i felt that i hadn't written a carbon gracious to before i dunno for five years at that point and i thought that well you know. Be kind of cool to pretend the old band still together. And and and that. I'm this song and i'm taking to the rehearsal pad to for nick newman to sing and i felt that you know it's sort of a nice mind game that that you know what if i just sort of dip my toe in the water a little bit and pretty soon cloud nine you know just I wrote the melody and and It did it does sound like carmen. Grail incredibly similar It's like I and but but but it was fun to do that. Because i hadn't done that for a while. Sorta depop commercial radio sound and and rodeo came from the same writing session. And so they're kind of like you know volume one and volume two sort of common grace impersonators tunes and et cetera. It sounds more pop. Both of them sound more pop oriented than the the stuff that they mentioned. It sounds a little more americana Dr driving me insane definitely starts off like an americana tune but then kind of evolves into a radio friendly pop song got. That's actually wrote that song for carbon grade. I think it was two thousand but it was leftover from. Nobody wanted to do at that point.

Sandoval does not have a good history against Jansen is for four Three strikeouts. No balls and one strike. Scooter, A leaning pitch. Sandoval files it back.

Trying to make it a doubly satisfying night but still tied with Ella, even though Romo's coming in when it's time for a change, Thanks, speedy oil change and tune up your oil changed tune up and repair experts. It's Rome. Oh, against the Dodgers won the 1/9 inning. So Nick Manto is going to lead things off. He's been on base four times once on a foolish choice.

"Monarchs are poisonous mildly poisonous taste bad. I was always taught growing up. The viceroys were making monarchs because monarchs poisonous. Advisories or not. But that's not true. No IT'S NOT VICE. Razor also poisonous. So it's if a bird has an experienced with a monarch or viceroy. It's going to have a bad experience and kind of helps both species so super cool what yet petition mimicry. Soc Bazzi into so. I think that might be right. Yeah it doesn't matter the won't the one with the B. Mimicry is win. Both are danger. Bugs Malaria. N- is only one is a danger. Bug Von Fax for you. There's different kinds of mimicry. Sorry yeah. I've heard everything from like an inch inch and a half to two inches on size versa caterpillar. So I'm not yet and there's there probably is a lot of sites variation between individuals so there there is because I've seen them very very small. I've seen them large. And this goes for the males and females. I've I've caught very small females. Them Link Are you really a Sakina? Keller so if you do have size variation it may be really small female or it may be a male but I wouldn't recommend cashing them to find out. Yeah probably not the best know that that's a that's a great way to familiarize yourself a little bit more intimately with a danger bug than you probably wanted to do. So the ants like there's their Stinger kind of like you can barely see it when they're crawling around but like if you look up a video someone harassing one. Not that I recommend doing it but if it's already been done might as well watch a video of it you can see that they kind of dislike. Shoot that thing out of there. And it's it's at least a half inch long it's huge duplicated killers kind of do something similar whether it's kind of like hidden in there or what you see what you it's a little bit. I don't think it's near to the extreme that the the velvet ants often. It's most most of what you see what you get. They have a bill. That's more similar. Almost reminiscent of like a Hornet. They are very Bust whilst they're not like a thread waisted at all so pretty much what you got but yes you're velvet. You mentioned they do like to do like to. They are parasitoses on on CICADA killers. Which I don't like it because I'd like my killers. Anybody I I do have I do have one friend that she finds she finds cicadas incessantly annoying their droning in the summer so she is very happy to have those wasps in her yard Eating part of her Keta population to at least make it a little bit quieter harsh harsh but at the same time. I applaud the fact that she is happy to have have that but yes they do. What they do is actually in. It's it's not even like you find. Nick Newman Wasser bracket or anything. Where you where. They actually will lay an egg inside or on the larvae known. What they do is they find the burrow these velvet dance. Find the killer. Borough they lay the league just inside so this larvae. That has matured. It's says it's ready to Pew Pate It's worth it. Pugh paid it starts to crawl out of the borough. And then you're Yes your velvet. Ant Larvae latches onto cannot bear. Life isn't fair. I know I mean why. Go for like a little tiny little jelly bean loss. You can get a Bagel Mama's exactly food. I'm just in now is it is. It is an elegant solution. Is I as I like to say so? I guess that that is that is my absolute favorite wasp that you can find in Kansas because they are just. They're just so industrious. They're hard working. Which must insects are they have? They have a next generation to make but They're all so brightly colored and big. Most people are freaked out by them. But they're so busy trying to catch CICADAS. I've I've watched them fly like within a foot of me and they really do not care. That idea are just a lot of fun to watch I think villa answer probably my favorite. Just they're so cute and there's like they're fast. They are extraordinarily fast. Yeah they're they're almost like Tiger Beetle. Fast they just okay. Yeah I know exact- I reaching a little bit of tackle insect there like the flash practically you can't have greatest joy is being able to actually catch one because rate Stupid vest but anyway they are very very fast and they're just like on speed all the time running everywhere gotta find some little other wasps two pairs of ties. They are busy and they're on the ground and they can't. They can't fly to get a better view. They have to be on the grass. The Up to move around One website that I was reading stuff about the Amazon was like they're not that fast. I was like what are you using for comparison lake? I mean compared to like a human sugar but like facts. How know what they're talking about? But I've tried to get footage of one where he just have your phone in your following in round i. I can't crawl this fast hurry hurry. They're Super Fun. And I think they're very unique for a wasp and their fuzzy and anything else about your waspy can't really. I can't really think of much else. Besides just geeking out. Over the form of the fact.

I don't know man I think about Austin does a podcast right to where he sits down and he talks into a microphone. I don't know anyone else. That does a podcast right. So Austin sits down does a podcast where he talks to them people without a camera. Great threatened Yellow Green Green Green shops. I don't think he'll I think he might have to? I don't know man. How are you feeling about this? Roddy are you. Are you excited about two point? Yeah because I'm one of those people that I'm interested to see what they're gonNA do. Especially what the advertisement of stone cold coming back. And I think he's still bring him in. Because the element of surprise with triple h Michael. Cole I think you talked to him and have him be as big of a part of it as triple h was throwing my commentary bucket You know what I mean. That's just my take on it but yeah I think he'll still be there Sit Down Interview Yeah. I think it's definitely possible because like you said he's podcasts. Man So yeah see. How are you feeling about raw Me The same thing as smackdown her performance center. I'm interested to see what they do. Don't want to see a sit down interview with stone cold stress. I mean he's gotTa match it mania. Sure but now we're just talking this. Don't call the talk to stone cold. We've seen that one hundred times past ten years. Would it be bad to see him on commentary? That would be interesting to what he has to say about the group a talent like throughout the night but as far as the sit down interview. They're going to ask him the same questions. They've been asking him Who's your favorite performer? Nowadays who you know what I mean. The same he has his own podcast. Everybody that is part of the wrestling community has has listened to it once or twice so any question they ask. We kind of already know the answer to this podcast. I don't know fuck podcasts. Long fucking loser block them all you know what I mean. Though like he he does interviews with people he also does interviews himself and he's going to get asked a lot of the same questions. Is there really a question you can ask phone call that we don't know the answer to that would surprise you? Yes wants that back to the ring. God Damn Right. I am essay. That's but that's what I mean. That's like if that's what this sit down interview if that's what they do leads to then okay but if not then it's going to be you know. Oh You which Which Wesley would you WANNA wrestle today? Even though we do not GonNa fucking happen you know Kinda Shit. Yeah so I mean it's a nice teaser. Also maybe they don't bring them back because the whole reason to bring them back crowd reaction and now you don't have a crowd. Yeah but it's still three sixteen day. I know I get that But again you're bringing him back for the pop and there's GonNa be no pop right you know so now. What so I. I mean it's interesting to see if if when he comes back or if he comes back what they'll what the the scheme will be around it. I guess so. Would you guys like to partake in some some drinks? Okay okay cool. That was easy. Where SMITTY SPENDING? I hear what you don't say I know no way Jose noise no sitting might not make it so. I didn't expect to come. Someone asks Juan Merino asked the things. Don't call we'll have a run in with rollins and come and company and become special wrestlemainia would have one. That would be an interesting angle. Yeah Yeah instead of having someone come in and cut a promo have get involved with the Owen Story. Because he's doing. Yeah Yeah I get that That would be cool. Yeah and then that would be something cool for the mania that might not happen all right We're GONNA talk about eight w dynamite and then we're going to go into the possibility of all the wrestlemanias stuff so eight w dynamite is moving from wherever they were going to be. I don't remember now off the top of my head to Jacksonville and Jacksonville with a very limited audience. Well like very like the practice or the practice facility for the Jaguars or something. I don't know I do not know nobody sorry. So cody Rhodes was hit by a fan. Say Cody is it really necessary to continue with the storylines without the crowd? The crowd the energy the environment is what makes eight. W The best right now. I'm really worried. I was dying for these altered revelation to come but not. Now Cody responded a lot of folks sitting at home some scared all board just like a real community leaders have come forward. Entertainment leaders have to follow suit safely. People need to laugh cry. Forget love all the good stuff. My personal opinion. We shouldn't hold back. I totally agree with them. Yeah I mean. A lot of people are working from home and are scared to leave their house so they need something. He's not wrong there and aid. W was doing storylines without crowd before a w was actually a company things like being the elite and all that so. I mean they were. They were building storylines without ever really having wrestling matches up until double or nothing so really. They're just. This is just par for the course. Nick Newman what's he said? Honestly yeah and I don't if they go through and they go through Jacksonville and wherever and do this shit in front of an empty crowd. I'm all for it. Keep this shit going. You know what I mean like if the NBA and the NHL with the amount of talent that they have this compared to a company like wwe w want to cancel their season to whatever You know you gotTa do what you gotTa do. But you know these companies like this if they can put on a show in Jacksonville. They can put on a show to performance center to keep give something people to talk about other than this mass hysteria do it. It is kind of interesting to be like while WHO's GonNa put on them. Better empty arena. Show you you know what I mean like. It is an interesting concept like all right. We was okay so annexed. He was a limited crowd right. There were people okay so then smackdown was completely empty. Ross is going to be completely empty. Awa Ltd maybe completely empty. Who knows by Wednesday what it'll be but it will be interesting to see like all right which company now or which company or which brand is going to put on the best empty arena. Show because that says a lot about your talent. I'll agree with that. I we were talking about throwing the Elimination Chamber match in there and how it made sense because there was no crowd and things like that. But are you fucking giving us God? Damn car bombs yes mother and then after the car bomb. I have a different shot with breakfast today. Yes Nick Breakfast today. What breakfast getting close sweet. We'd have to head Adler Show I. I want to try a new shot with a popular Irish whiskey and a popular energy drinks slash coffee. Which is an Irish blend. So cheers guys all right fuck off. We're doing an empty stomach. Show yes what are you doing? I'm not I'm not the bartender in half. Oh well okay to pay too much Guinness. Is it too much too much? You know what I would like to see our lunches I would love to. I would like to see and maybe it is a bad idea but evade w does this show at Daly's place and then they took the talent from the back. Put them in the crowd in the empty seats. Not Altogether put them like section often random spots here and there and then like you would see them once in a while like during a match and they throw like another screen on the side show and Orange Cassidy and best friends. Chill near what they're thinking about the match or you know. Shit like that. We have said for many many weeks months. Hell almost a year. Now that Annex T has been the most put together show wrestling wise top to bottom but the reason Awa always felt bigger felt better was because of their arenas that they're going to end the crowd reactions that they get fucking sunup bitch so this completely changed the landscape. You have to have fuck. I shouldn't drink. Orange juice was building up if you have to have an empty arena show and you're losing all of that pomp and circumstance that was because there you're relying solely on how it's just the match and because let's be very honest man. Those high spot matches fun with no one to go. Holy Shit. Shit W W yeah. You don't have that you just have you going through a table off a ladder with Hurricane Rana and then crickets and like I said I mean. You're you're basing this off of pure talent now and look. I am not trying to say. Awa doesn't have talent but the reason that they've gotten as much flack as they got was because a lot of people said that there's not enough story driven matches now. Granted I've the Yamba caught all that. Flack and then the drama. With Kenny Omega and Kabuki Cho boozing with that storyline and they did it the tag match in New Japan and then a lot of people were like Holy Shit. The Young Bucks can tell the story and the ring. So it's not like the can't and it's not like they haven't same thing with monks but mocks in aws is way different than Amro's and wwe mocks in a e W is literally a shock factor wrestler. If there's no one to shock where's the factor and Yeah Dean Ambrose and WW talks to plants? So I could have a match with a broom and it'd be good. Kenny Omega has literally had a match with the broom and it was good. I don't really think this Wednesday is going to be a huge indicator of where AWS's because they're forced their driving factor were the undeniable Her Hands Hardcore monks. That were fused. Say anything bad about eight. W Right which gets annoying to that fucking literally like have a happy debate about. It's okay to even say something bad about it and still like it right. Get into something in a second. That had a conversation with on twitter yesterday but the Awa fan base is not there Wednesday. May I again? They say this is literally quote. It's restricted attendance policy. So I don't know what they're going to do. Are they going to let like fifty to one hundred people in? That's still more than the performance center. And it's GonNa feel bigger and better if they have fans but a hundred and a twenty five hundred person arena. I mean all I know a Michigan they limited it to two hundred fifty people. I don't know what they did in Florida. I can't wait till you owe back so I mean do they. And whatever I if Florida even set a limit for how many people can be in a you know contain space for an event so all the probably just hit that number but the cool part is aws indie show.

"Sports radio to course he's a discover already an analyst so your year my head I can tell you though you know you know I've talked about the thrashers stuff so many times and I'm sick of it okay I'm personally sick that's fine so what if my body father cases he loves he loves the old story but it's funny but I mean you and I talked about so many times I'd almost so it if it's funny anymore so many different stories we got anyway your stories are way better than mine because I only remember it's never it's never for me what I remember you remember whatever right like so but I've always been very straight now right but you remember all the funny stuff that happened and I'll always remember the frustration and aggravation of dealing with the mall and the chiller yeah there was heavy on without yelling at me every day like so I just wasn't having it they yelled at me too though I wasn't having and I'm like dude like do not much like at that time let's face facts I was doing and I'll be real brief here I don't get it on I was on battle down the threat three other markets all over America I was on I had been on MTV for like seven years sure two and everything with Carson Daly and everything else summer house you name it right I was hammered and then I mean I was I was huge do yeah she was off I was bigger than the hockey team Q. what that hockey team is a bunch of no name hacks and then I came rolling out of a limo from Los Angeles with sunglasses on and I do be in my mouth and they were they just weren't having it wasn't legal Jenny but either way they landed I still not legally can't even believe that I I got that you did that yeah that I got it I I probably should have never got it but I I thought that you know it was frustrating for me because the whole thing was just a a nightmare for me like frustrated is I've always been used to be a real liberal and crazy and wild and entertain right right off the cuff and loose and no rules in military and my my year where and what time you get on the bus in the plan and yet and you eat breakfast at this time and you're not allowed to have anything besides juice and cranberry juice I wanted a drink yes we about yes I want to get into yes we're out the I want to get in the eagles because they are going to be one of the handful the best team okay so my question is this you guys gave all that money to Carson Wentz no no no they but they were smart because you see what do you mean they paid early right so they're making dak Prescott dak Prescott wind up being paid more well of course I Jack Prescott isn't Carson Wentz and they're gonna they create do you really believe that absolutely so so you think that because if you're if you're three times if that much better than that thirty two general managers in a row right and said to them you can build your team around dak Prescott a Carson Wentz thirty two general managers take Carson Wentz do you believe that thirty two of thirty time because there's no way Jerry Jerry Jones would take cars and I think I think Jake is right that every GM in the league would take him over Carson Wentz act press because here that press cuts never gonna be titles on the beach with his arm dak Prescott won't be able to it doesn't have his Paul the my question is is that what your guy is just as soft as pancakes and syrup bonhomie gets injured every year you can't first will need that in writing policy that you're injured and fell like every year the knee injury thing you can't mail when they broke as Jack I mean one of love hopefully going to be one of these guys and stumbles out of his front door and he's on the I hope I hope he's not in the not being Jim McMahon like type of thing where actually got a quarterback that does it that's what you guys are you guys have the I don't worry about that with that they are the best if you take offense of in defense of line they're the best team in the NFL if that was all you just looked at who has the best combination of offensive and defensive line the eagles are less so what happens and then with all that I mean after they won the Superbowl they sucked no they didn't yeah they do no they did they have a little bit a little bit a bump in the road beginning they were after they were they were they were they were there very much average in the beginning I had on him and that and then Doug Peterson turned it on I think he's a good coach he's a really good you know what I like about him is that he is a guy that is always going to roll the dice and that's not me and I've seen it this week even gambling that's not me they got all all hold back a little bit because of the state I don't wanna be that bold he's pulled these aggressive and look at the if the eagles are healthy don't you think Philadelphia fans crave that yes level again love a guy with onions also too because of they lived like Peterson because he's not corporate Doug Peterson is a Scott Ferrall type he's not as crazy issue but he's very much on conventional like you so they don't live Philly doesn't want the button down is on a cough you felt very much goes buys got makes a call from day one in the NFL Carson Wentz was allowed to audible out of place Matt Ryan was allowed audible out of place in their Superbowl C. thank god to Chantal come back in a big fat yeah yeah now he'll miss three games with a pulled hamstring right because he always does that's just what what happens with him but they're going to be ill be a big weapon I love I mean I love their offense I absolutely love the lights a scrimmage I just absolutely love it but their defense is still such a you go back every year for a game my daughter and I do a Daddy daughter weekend for game every year it's the only sport she cares

whatever he has the second best batting average with men in scoring position internationally that's a braided I mean he's when when when ducks around the pun Harper is the second best at bat delivery guy in all the national and people like all they overpaid for Harper first off for the Phillies doesn't matter that they overpaid because they have so much money they don't care they have so much by

"Radio services. Now comes through smart speakers. So obviously, the majority is still three mobile phones and through desktop computers. But nineteen percent now. So this is hit today, and that is grown from just a tiny percentage year ago, and this is motionless additional radio listening. So that's the exciting thing for radio broadcasters is that a lot of this is taking radio to places it's never been before. So young people do not have radios in the homes, but they are starting to get these kind of devices in the home, and that is putting the possibility for live radio. And of course, report Carson that. So that's that's broadcasters for newspaper publishes its much difficult situation because they don't have a lot of audio ready. It's expensive to start experiments on this. They're a bit more wary, generally. The experience of the past is that new technologies do tend to shape the night show of the news. That is put out not just the way in which put out would would we expect that with voice activated. Speakers absolute. I mean, I think where we are right now is almost like what we refer to shovel where so you take what you did on the previous platform, and you put it onto a new platform. So the television was originally, you know, radio with pictures people just dick what they did in radio, and then put pictures onto it the full they discovered it was completely different media, and they had to treat it in a completely different way and voice in some ways is just a way of distributing existing radio linear radio podcasts. But it's also going to be a media minutes owned, right? And so we're gonna need to think about some of those spoke full nuts. So particularly short news bulletins would be one example. But also voice search which is going to be a huge part of the future that people just asking questions and getting the back invoice again because it's quick. Easier. More friction list. Nicknamed from the Reuters institute for the study of gentlemen, thank you very much. Thanks. Starring with audio and one potentially significant business move in recent days was the purchase of Gimblett media. By the audio streaming giants Spotify for those familiar with Gimblett. It's a highly successful narrative podcast producer based in New York. So why was the acquisition significant will analyst Dave Zohrab believes it signals potential future boom for the podcast industry. Which despite all the hype is still rather small niche, Dave is the CEO and co founder of charitable a podcast and Olympics and intelligence firm, and like Nick Newman, he also sees enormous potential for the growth of podcasting via smart speakers absolutely one hundred percent agree. It is a amazing thing to have. These new audio delivery devices that can deliver any kind of audio in you know, tens of millions soon to be over one hundred million homes in the US and around the world. And that's an amazing thing. It's only gonna take some. Time in some education for folks to figure out. Hey, do more than just time my pasta, they can also help educate me and give me different information with different topics and even different than playing terrestrial or satellite radio stations. That already familiar with that there's a lot more out there whole universe of content. That is accessible from the speaker now Spotify the music sharing saw has bought the podcast. Julia Gimblett media and the hosting platform anchor this year, what are the implications for the industry? Well, it was certainly a massive shaped up of the industry the dollar amount was massive denominated in euros. But certainly the biggest podcasting by far, and I think that it points out to major strategies Spotify implant, I is that Gimblett is self described HBO audio they make premium content. These shows that they put out there's not that many of them. It's not that they'd get a massive number of downloads. But the shows are extremely high quality, and they're super engaging and Spotify is making it bad that engaging. Audio content will both bring new listeners to Spotify. And also increase the amount of engagement that their existing Spotify listeners have it's also nice for Spotify. When they're listening to a podcast this if I doesn't have to pay out music labels for that time. So there's some really beneficial effects for them. The second thing is that ain't or is kind of the opposite under the spectrum inkers this very democratized platform, the it super easy to create a podcast even with just your phone or an ipad. No external microphone nothing like that. And Spotify making they put these tools in the hands of creative people around the world that we're gonna see a burst of creativity. New shows that's about if I will have early access to you. If you've all they'll be able to see which shows are catching on quickly and maybe make a play for them to become specified shows. So it certainly shook up the entire industry. I was just at podcast conference here and the US called hot pod summit and everybody was buzzing thinking, what does this mean for me? What does this mean for? You know what I do? Whether I'm a content creator our software provider or someone inbetween feels like there's a lot of excitement and energy. Also feels like there's going to be more plays made that this is not the last move that a company like Spotify majors, the rather the first of hopefully, many moves from companies not just like Spotify, but perhaps net flicks, apple doodle, Amazon. Anyone who's thinking about capturing attention on different medians thinking? Okay. Well, this is worth three hundred million dollars three hundred and fifty million dollars. Spotify. What does that mean for Netflix? What does that mean for our users? What does that mean for how people are spending their time and both Spotify and Gimblett trend, ladies trendsetters out? They is. It is important. I think that's Spotify. Making it bet on the power of audio for the future right now podcasts in the US. Elsewhere are pretty tiny market in comparison to almost any other media markets the numbers from the internet advertising bureau for the United States were about three hundred twenty million in two thousand seventeen. There was some initial numbers being tossed around at the conference last week of around six hundred and fifty million. So almost one hundred percent growth and twenty eighteen but you know, compared to something like even AM FM radio or movies or TV or anything like that it's tiny. But there's something really special happening with these shows when you have one of these high quality audio documentaries like the ones that Gimblett produces folks are spending crazy amount of time, especially in this attention starved or attention saturated world, where you know, you have pains and notifications coming from dozens of apps on your phone hundred computer that you would spend, you know, ten plus hours with one particular audio show documentary. Let Gimblett s- conviction was a recent one is a pretty unusual thing and spies making about that. More. People are going to be spending, you know, deep long amounts of time with audio content than they have in the past so podcast spa. Oldie the hunt that we often he of CASA still a pretty small segment all the audio market as you said, nevertheless, you do believe that we're entering a golden age. We'll put costing don't you? I do believe that. I mean, you can see it across many members of axes could see across the number of listeners. There's been a massive growth in listeners and twenty eight teen there's a massive growth in the number of podcasts in twenty eighteen. There are over two hundred ten thousand new podcasts that we tracked which is almost a third of the total shows ever. So if you draw those lines out, you see a massive explosion of content and of listeners and things were entering a new age where we're going to see a wider variety of content to see more people listening and really binging on that content. Like, they do you know of new Netflix. Show people binge on the new Gimblett show that's on Spotify in the same way. And what's the attraction? Do you think? Why? I mean, just a good thing for somebody like myself who works in the industry, but what's the people in this fast paced world, as you say, I think that there's a few things number one is it's kind of nice to have something you can spend time with your not staring at a screen almost everything that we do now is mediated by some kind of glowing red on. Of course, you may need to look at it in retinol to press start on your podcast by the rest of the time. You can have your hands and your eyes to yourself. You can be interesting in the world. Whether that's watching to drive into work or doing stuff at home. We hear the proverbial example of somebody folding laundry or cleaning the house while they're listening to a podcast. You can bring podcasts into your life in a different way than other kinds of media. And I think that that is a special thing. I think we're gonna see more of that people. Finding more ways to bring audio into their lives in the future. And the second thing is that the content is just it's just so good. There's just so many great show. Being produced. Now, we're only going to see more of that. So if you like stories new light, great, storytelling assistant to be so many more options in the future for people. And I think that you know, whether that whether they're listening on their smart speaker while they're cooking or twenty the house or they're listening their car, which now has bluetooth undercut up to their phone. There's so many ways for the story to be heard and people's lives. How do we know that people are actually listening because downloads the the standard way of measuring the podcasting district, but that doesn't necessarily mean if somebody's downloaded it doesn't necessarily mean that they've actually listened to the episode? Does it that's crit? So Donald does not mean that somebody's listen, but the last year and a half or so we have seen more data provided by apple and Spotify as to who's actually listening. So apple started providing listener data back in December twenty seventeen was the public release, and they show you how many votes are actually getting to certain part of the show so show you actually in five second intruments should see how far somebody's listening sinc- people. Are skipping ads or if a particular episode was less compelling than another one, then you'll see people dropping out, and so for content, creators, editors, etc. Producers scraped to see that data for advertisers. Also, it's great to see that data. If you wanna see who actually listened to your ad Spotify. Also started presenting the states all podcasters in October of twenty eighteen. So it's been pretty recent since all the state that was available. I would expect more platforms to present this information over time, and I would expect folks in the industry to move away from the download as the standard metric it's just a little bit of time and some agreement as to what listen really means is that sixty seconds of listening. That's Spotify calls it is that a minute. Is that fifty percent of however, one episode is I think, you know, there's gonna be some conversations industry as to you know, to to agree on what listen actually means. What can you tell us about demographics? Do poed Koss have ruled appeal or is there a certain section of the community to whom they particularly appealing. I'll be able to. More to the US market than worldwide just based on my location, my experience, but historically podcasts have been more affluent. And educated folks, particularly on the coasts in the US so urban major urban centers. However that has been changing in recent years, especially since badeah five began pushing podcast more in their main app. You started to see different kinds of content to the top of the Spotify charts you start to see new listeners entering the podcast full. So one of the leered global statistics for podcasts at over sixty percent of all podcast downloads happened on apple iphones, but apple iphones are much less than half of the overall smartphone market and the world, especially in in various countries like in Germany, or in the U K apple has a much smaller market share than the June the US where it's about half. So the platform itself, the iphone itself has has been a huge driver of listening. Because it's the apple podcasts app is bundled with every phone iphone users tend to have certain demographics at least in the US attend. To be more affluent folks on the whole that kind of platform device based interaction has driven a lot of the demographics. But as more folks like Spotify doodle are pushing podcasts we start to see those demographics change, and you can see it on the charts even on the apple charts, you see more mainstream content, not just critically acclaimed documentaries and not just mind expanding educational NPR programming, but also you'll see some mainstream sports content and a lot more true crime. And things like that where it's clear that you're moving away from just this affluent educated audience, which I think is a great thing. And do the economics make sense for those small players given that most people who start up costs looking to make it a viable option economically. I've that's a great question. I think the economics have yet to cut up to the amount of attention that's being paid. But I think that historically if you look at other media, whether that's the original wireless radio in the nineteen twenties or television or cable or even the. Internet wherever the attention goes at dollars or other dollars will usually follow. So there's a major gap between the amount of money. That's currently being paid to the folks that are creating these shows, but if you looked at the amount of attention than numbers sheer number of hours that people are devoted to this medium. It would be in my opinion and historical anomaly, if the money didn't catch up whether that's next year or in the next five years. I hope it's next year for all of us. But it's one of those things that I expect to play out in the same that it's happened. Another media Zoro co-founded and see chargeable. Thank you very much for joining us. Thanks for having me.

But among technologists, it seems it still has come and see. Boeing so-called low stress mobility is competing with arch-rival Airbus and numerous other firms to introduce small cell flying vehicles capable of Bertel takeoff and landing it's a technological field. Sounds a lot like a helicopter to me. Hello, Anthony Fennell here. Well, future taints. Now one person who will know is Carlo Ratti, the director of the sensible city laboratory at MIT, the Massachusetts Institute of technology, and he'll join us a little later to talk about the potential urban impact of flying cars and also automated vehicles. I we're off to Oxford and the Reuters institute for the study of journalism, they have a report published called the future of voice and the implications for news. It's all about the potential of voice activated smart speakers, powered by intelligent assistance, think. Amazon Alexa, and Google assistant his senior research associate Nick Newman. What was saying is the moment of sort of lots of interest and hype around voice activated speakers in particular that growing credit quickly, but we know very little about how they're being used the platform selves of very secretive. About even how many devices have been sold let alone giving aggregated takes her about how for example that being used for news. And this is kind of important because that will so asking publishes to invest significantly increasing content for these devices. So what we were trying to do is essentially understand the situation today with early adopters. But also, what some of the barriers might be more people using voice. And specifically how these devices were being used for news. Are they going to be important in the news ecosystem on not the Reuters institute's report was based on user surveys in the US and Britain as well as focus groups in both of those countries and Germany what they found was that despite this -cation smart speakers are being used in a very basic way. Totally. Yeah. I mean when we asked people eighty four percent say that they using it for music and two-thirds say that it's the most important feature so sixty four cents cents most important feature early. One percent say news is the most important feature will though people. Are you know, saying give me the news Alexa, the news Google ferry? Few people think that's very important or finding much value out of it yet. And that was one of the main findings is actually and again when we went into people's homes as we use the news all the time. But then you can look at what's happening on their devices. You can look back at the history of what they've done maybe they accessed at once last Wednesday. So it's not yet. And I think there's number reasons for this is not yet becoming a sort of key device for news. We'll let's come to those reasons in second, but podcasts aren't being accessed via these voice activated. Speakers yet, either not significant numbers, according. Percents significant numbers. So we sort of got up this number different ways in the survey. Maybe ten percent fifteen percent said that they were accessing podcasts at least monthly through these speakers these of the owners, but actually if you ask publishes a new about one will two percent of their total traffic is coming from voice activated speeches Online's. Most of their traffic is still coming from all from district computers, and in terms of podcasts, and I think the reasons for that because Paul consequential personal thing and these really shat devices so the sitting there in the living room and quite often import cast you have very specific tastes that a specific to you may be back your passion or comedy, you like, whatever. So it may be the wrong device in their own place. And a lot of the podcast growth that we've seen young people particularly through headphones and out of home these devices, not yet out of home that is coming. They coming to headphones and cars, and so I think that is going to completely change the picture. But right now podcast is not from. Central so returning to the consumption of news. What you see what does the research tell you might be some of the reasons why there hasn't been a significant take-up today, we asked people in the survey. And basically people said thank you much news. Anyway from different sources. I mean news is just everywhere so complete different picture from twenty years ago when us was kind of scarce now, it's abundant it's in the air. It's kind of coming out through notifications on mobile phones. So it's not the people want more news. I think what people want is news that's relevant specific to them and in the right format. And at the moment a lot of the formats of this stuff is essentially just offcuts from radio. But the context is different.
